Ladd Donnie Sparkman seeks another term as property appraiserBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netWakulla County Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman announced this week that he will seek re-election to the of“ ce. Sparkman, 63, is currently in his “ fth year as property appraiser after being elected to the post in 2006. During his time in of“ ce, Sparkman has seen the countys property values plummet after the bursting of the real estate bubble several years ago. Locally, the boom was fueled by speculation on coastal properties as well as new construction. Property values have dropped about 10 percent a year until this year, when Sparkman anticipates a 3 to 5 percent drop as property values get close to the bottom. Were almost at the bottom,Ž he said, but were not there yet. My fear is, when we do get to the bottom, were just going to lay there and flounder,Ž Sparkman said of local property values. Sparkman indicated “ scal responsibility is important, and praised other constitutional of“ cers and county commissioners for working together during last years budget problems. Hopefully, now weve got things turned around,Ž he said. Looking out for the taxpayers of Wakulla County, thats my number one goal,Ž he said. Sparkman said hes proud of the job he and his staff have done. When he “ rst took over the of“ ce “ ve years ago, there were 16 employees including himself. Now there are 13, a decrease due to attrition and leaving positions un“ lled. You will be greeted by a smile and a friendly, respectful person,Ž he said of people coming into his of“ ce for service. He made that a priority, and said it was largely the result of time spent in the private sector … nothing was more irritating than someone in government having an attitude when he went in an of“ ce on business. He said he told his employees when he came into the office: If you cant smile and be helpful, I dont need you.Ž Besides customer service, Sparkman said he was pleased with his of“ ces work cleaning up the tax roll. We have cleaned up a lot of problems and continue to do so,Ž he said. My ambition if to have the most equitable tax roll possible.Ž Sparkman has been married to his wife Rita for 41 years and has three grown sons. He has served 18 years in county government, including a stint in the property appraisers of“ ce from 1970 to 1980. He was a registered land surveyor and worked for 23 years with Edwin G. Brown and Associates. He served three years as community development director for Wakulla County. Sparkman served almost two years in the U.S. Army, including a year in Vietnam with the 199th Light Infantry Brigade. All three of his sons are veterans of the Iraq War. I am most thankful to the people of Wakulla County for giving me the opportunity to serve them and promise to continue to work hard for them,Ž Sparkman said. I still have a lot of work to do to make Wakulla Countys tax roll the best and I will always strive to do what is in the best interest of the people of Wakulla County,Ž he said. Im just very thankful for the chance to do this job,Ž he said. Its just an enjoyable job. I love helping the people. I believe,Ž he said, that you help them, theyll help you.Ž Donnie Sparkman Wakulla’s housing problemThe rst part of a special series by reporter Jennifer Jensen on the lack of affordable housing in the countyEXTRA! Page 1B Clarifying plans for airportSpecial to The NewsSherrie Alverson still has her home at Shell Point … untouched by raging flames … thanks to a quick-thinking 6-year old boy, Aden Zachary Logan. Early Thursday afternoon, Aden was playing in the Alverson backyard when he realized that there was a “ re racing across the lot next door. He dashed into the downstairs where his mother was, screaming: Mommy, mommy, fire in backyard.Ž His mother, in turn, dashed outside where she found an adult man beating at the ” ames with a shovel … there was no hose available. Learning that he had not called 911, she did so. Then she and Aden hooked together all the Alverson hoses they could “ nd and began spraying the yard and utility buildings. Aden and his mother, Elizabeth Atkinson, are visiting Alverson. Aden is enrolled at Medart Elementary School. Alverson was not home at the time, being in Tallahassee on business. By the time she was reached by phone, the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce road crew and the Apalachee Bay Volunteer Fire Department had the “ re under control. Alverson said later that for a few seconds after she heard the news she remembered the anguish brought by the phone call she received on July 9, 1978. That time, she was 400 miles on the road to Memphis, Tenn., where she had traveled to attend a Coast Guard Auxiliary school … and the news was tragic. The Alverson home on Live Oak Island was completely destroyed when the house next door caught “ re. It was then that the Alversons had their home built at Shell Point.Boy’s quick thinking saves Shell Point home Aden Zachary Logan By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter land was cleared and a sign popped up saying, Future Expansion of Wakulla County Airport,Ž many residents along Surf Road in Ochlockonee Bay became concerned and expressed their disapproval by putting up their own signs that said no to the expansion. According to members of the Wakulla County Airport Advisory Committee, they knew nothing about the sign and land clearing until they were noti“ ed a couple weeks ago. The county and the committee said they were not responsible for that. Committee Chairman John Russell said the property owner put up the sign and cleared the land and he could see how that would be confusing and concern residents in the area. Committee Member Walt Dickson said there were rumors that condos were coming in. Surf Road resident John Andrew Smith said, There was the implication that the county did it. It was misleading to some degree.Ž Russell said there are no plans to expand the airport, but to bring it up to the Department of Transportations minimum standards and increase safety at the airport. This involves moving the runway down and over to the west. This would extend the length of the runway from 2,800 feet to 2,972 feet, Russell said. The reason for the shift is because the building that houses La Cantina Grille is 50 feet inside the airports safe zone. David Roberts, administrator of aviation operations at DOT, said the building is a hazard and since they dont own the building, it cannot be moved. But you do own the runway, so you can move it,Ž Roberts said. In order to move the runway, the property to the west would need to be purchased, he said. Russell said the area runs right through the corner of the building. The runway would also be paved, currently it is a grass runway. The priority for the airport is to purchase the property necessary and move the runway, Russell said. The county received $75,000 from FDOT, which it was going to use for lighting the runway. However, Roberts said that it would be pointless to spend money on lighting when the runway needs to be moved. The funds could be reallocated from lighting to studies and appraisals of the adjacent property and perhaps acquisition, Russell said. This would require approaching the countys engineers, as well as DOT to see what can be done. We have the resources,Ž Russell said. We need to take advantage of them.Ž All the adjacent property needs to be assessed to “ nd out how much it is worth, Russell said. Continued on Page 2ACommissioner seeks changes to wetlands rulesBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCurrently, property owners can apply for a variance to the Wetlands Ordinance, which would allow them to build within the 40-foot buffer zone. One commissioner is proposing that variances be allowed within the remaining 35-foot buffer, which is the one closest to the wetlands. Commissioner Randy Merritt, who has expressed his desire to throw out the entire wetlands ordinance, proposed this option at the March 19 Wakulla County Commission meeting. Merritt said there is a mechanism for people to apply for a variance within the 40-foot buffer, but not the 35-foot buffer. To not allow a property owner to build on their own land is a taking of personal property, Merritt said. He also wanted to allow planning staff the ability to approve variances within the 40-foot buffer and not have to get approval from the commission. He said he would like to set up parameters on how the planning director can grant variances. Merritt said if a property owner wants to build a 2,000 square foot home, but that would place it inside the buffer, they should be able to, instead of having to build a smaller home. Merritt said the owner must have a compelling reason for the variance. A lot of people probably dont want to go through the hassle of applying for a variance, he said. But they should be able to at least request it,Ž Merritt said.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1AThe committee agreed they needed to contact District 3 in DOTs aviation of“ ce to see about re-allocating those funds so they could get started with studies and appraisals. Roberts said the committee and county also need to educate people in the area about the improvements and explain to them that there is no intention of making it an international airport. Its not incompatible with residents that live there,Ž Roberts said. Surf Road residents Smith and L. James Parham, who were in attendance at the meeting, did not agree with that statement and felt the residents would feel an impact. Smith was concerned about the new flight path once the runway is moved. It will now go right over his house, he said. He said he didnt have an issue with trying to make the airport safer, but he did have an issue with expanding the airport and allowing larger planes to access the airport, as well as the wooded barrier being cleared. Russell said they will add a barrier and make it as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Parham said the homes at the end of the runway are not compatible with this plan and will surely lose value. Russell said once the paving is complete, that will help with the noise. It will allow the planes to accelerate much faster so they would ” y over the homes much higher than they currently do. Tarpine resident Steve Fults said, The realignment of the airport is minimal.Ž Fults was voted in as the airport director by the committee at this meeting. He will serve as a liaison between the county and committee. Russell said the Wakulla County Airport will probably never meet FAA regulations, so no one will ever see a jet or a large aircraft at this airport. Deputy Administrator Tim Barden said FAA pretty much told them that at a recent meeting. Parham said, What Wakulla County has is a runway,Ž adding that it was not an airport. Russell disagreed and said, It meets all the requirements for an airport.Ž He added that the county commission made two unanimous decisions to keep the airport and the county owns it. The only way it can continue to operate is to move the runway, Russell sad. Right now, its dangerous,Ž Russell said. Barden told the residents they had valid concerns and issues. He also informed them that any decision on the airport would need to go before the county commission and no decision had been made regarding the improvements. Currently, the airport covers 13.16 acres and contains a north-south turf runway, with no taxiways or ramp space, as well as no public facilities for parking. The county was given the airport in the 1960s by Fenton Jones under the condition that it remain an airport. The Tarpine Fly-in community was developed in the mid-80s and the residents have been taking care of the maintenance. They established a Wakulla County Airport Association in 2001. The topic of the airport has been one of controversy, with some who think the airport is an asset and others who think the county should turn it over to the residents of Tarpine. Previously there had been some discussion of turning the airport back over to the Tarpine community, however, it was decided the airport remain county owned so it could still be eligible for state and governmental grants. Due to lack of resources and staff to operate the airport, the commission decided to create this committee made up of volunteers to run the airport. The next committee meeting will be April 25 at 2 p.m. in the county commission conference room.Clarifying plans for airportBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe first phase of the Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail is substantially completed. This 2.09-mile phase starts at the Mashes Sands trailhead and ends east of the Tide Creek Bridge. This phase was funded by the Department of Transportation and the estimated cost of this phase is $601,403. A representative with Kimley-Horn and Associates, the countys engineering “ rm, said they have only heard great things about the quality of the trail and people have already started using it. The 11.63-mile multi-use trail that will connect the beach at Mashes Sands to U.S. Highway 319 in Sopchoppy has been in the works since 2001. A groundbreaking was held in June 24, 2011, however, due to a formal bid challenge by a contractor, the project was halted. The county received a formal bid challenge from Ben Withers Inc. who claimed he submitted all that was asked for, but was told he did not meet the criteria, which he said the county misinterpreted. The county contended that Ben Withers bid was properly rejected as noncompliant and non-responsive for failure to attach a copy of the required DOT Qualifications Letter for the four required pre-qualifications. Withers then protested the bid and the commission decided to throw out all bids and readvertise. The winning bid was Peavy and Son Construction for $450,853. This bid was awarded at the Dec. 5, 2011, meeting. Construction began on Jan. 9. The trail consists of “ ve phases. The county is hoping the remaining funds from the $1.2 million given for phase one can be shifted over to phase two, as well as any possible remaining funds from phase four. If DOT approves the shift, design will begin in the summer. Phase two includes the Tide Creek Bridge and proceeds along Mashes Sands Road across U.S. Highway 98 and extends 1.9 miles on Surf Road. The estimated cost is $1,2543,430. The third phase picks up where phase two ends on Surf Road and ends at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. The design for this phase is 60 percent complete. The cost of this phase is $581,500. So far, DOT has awarded $117,500 for the design and the DOT Work Program 2013 has earmarked $613,884. Phase four passes within the refuge running along Surf Road for 4.78 miles. Construction is anticipated to begin in June. Phase “ ve picks up on Surf Road east of the refuge and goes to US Highway 319 in Sopchoppy. A representative with Kimley-Horn and Associates said they met with the CRTPA who located funds for his project. The funds will become available July 1 and designing will begin.First phase of Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail is done JENNIFER JENSENA view of the recently “ nished portion of the new bike trail.

Sign up to receive email notification of new public notices at FloridaPublicNotices.comContinued from Page 1A Commissioner Mike Stewart said he agreed with part of the proposal, but wanted more time to study it. I agree that there needs to be a mechanism,Ž Stewart said so that residents can appeal to some level. I dont want to take anyones property,Ž he added. If we do that, were overregulating.Ž Commissioner Jerry Moore was in agreement with Merritt and said he would vote with Merritt to get rid of the wetlands ordinance completely. Merritt said he didnt think that would pass. But this is the thing I have the most issue with,Ž Merritt said. Chairman Alan Brock said he was willing to listen to the proposal, but didnt want to do anything to hurt the wetlands. He said he would also like to reach out to experts. Commissioner Lynn Artz was curious as to how often people are in this situation. I dont think this is a frequent problem,Ž Artz said. Stewart said there may only be “ ve a year, but it was important to the property owner. To make changes to the ordinance, the county would need to amend the comprehensive plan. Merritt agreed to bring something back before the commission at the next meeting. At the Sept. 19, 2011, county commission meeting, Merritt proposed removing the 75-foot wetlands buffer in the countys comprehensive plan entirely, but it failed. Merritt proposed this because he said isolated wetlands were now regulated by the Northwest Florida Water Management District and that state and federal regulations were adequate.Wetlands ordinanceBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe fee schedule for the use of county parks and recreational facilities has been revised. Director of Parks and Recreation, Bryan Roddenberry, said the idea was to make the fees as simple as possible and also provide funds for maintenance and upkeep. Gazebo and pavilion rental fees have decreased. The cost of renting a small gazebo or pavilion was reduced from $35 to $10 or $20. Large pavilions will now cost $50 or $25 depending on the facility. However, a refundable cleanup and damage deposit will now be required in the amount of $50 for all of them. Special events fees have been divided into two parts. There is a $250 rental fee and a refundable cleanup and damages deposit of $250. Roddenberry said if the county sponsors the event, the rental fee would be waived. People can also petition the county commission to have the rental fee waived for their event. There is a fee of $5 per person per 1.5 hours to reserve the tennis courts at Hickory Park. There is also a fee of $15 to rent a 15 feet by 15 feet spot at Hudson Park for a yard sale. People holding a yard sale will be required to pay the fee and obtain a permit. The 50-cent entry fee for Mash Island Park is now $2 per vehicle and $1 per bicycle or pedestrian. There is also a new annual park pass which will allow access to county piers, boat ramps, beaches and parks. The cost is $40. The use of all boat ramps in the county is $5 per launch, which will be set up on a honor system. Camping fees at Newport Park Campground have been increased to $35 for campsites with full hook ups and $20 for primitive campsites. The fee for using the lights at athletic “ elds is $25. The Panacea Womens Club can be rented for a half day at $100. New fees have also been added for the extension of“ ce, equestrian arena and community center. Commissioner Lynn Artz said there is some concern with non-profits groups about being charged to use a room at the community center. Theres lot of anxiety in the community,Ž Artz said. They want to be able to use it.Ž County Administrator David Edwards said they will look at non-pro“ ts on a case by case basis. The whole idea is to capture costs, he said. Kiosk and fence advertising fees were also included in the schedule. Signs can be placed on county facilities for a fee. Roddenberry said the hope is that some money will be generated to put back into the parks. Many parks dont have basic infrastructure,Ž Roddenberry said, such as signage, kiosks, lists of rules and regulations, etc. Reservations are not required to use many of the county facilities, but people with reservations will have priority access. The fees for recreation activities have not changed. The commission voted unanimously to approve the fee structure.COUNTY COMMISSIONFee schedule for county parks, rec facilities is revised The Shell Point Sailboard Club held its 2012 Wind Ceremony on Saturday, March 24 at Shell Point.

The latest event recognized Kick Butts Day,Ž a national day of awareness. The SWAT youth prepared and presented their own projects of prevention especially related to the latest enticement for sale, candy ” avored tobacco. SWAT students read the Wakulla resolution to prevent the use of tobacco products to the entire sixth class and then demonstrated the idea that Wakulla students are opposed to tobacco use. This effort under the leadership of a great teacher, Ms. Randle leaves us all grateful for her crusading and caring spirit for our students. Mary Tollefsen Ochlockonee Bay Editor, The News: I want to thank the Wakulla Board of County Commissioners for voicing their opposition to HB 5301, legislation that would increase county contributions for Medicaid. Floridas counties are required to pay a portion of the states share for certain Medicaid services. The Medicaid conforming bill, HB 5301, proposed a statutory change that would require every county to pay inaccurate, old bills and withhold their half-cent sales tax distribution for Medicaid each month moving forward, regardless of the bills accuracy. Local governments would have to apply to the state for a refund if they believe a charge is incorrect. Wakulla is a small, rural county. We do not have a hospital, which means our residents travel for emergency medical care. Our commissioners have assured Gov. Rick Scott that we uphold our responsibility to pay Wakullas share of Medicaid costs and that our county is willing to pay for the documented Medicaid costs for documented residents of Wakulla County. However, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the agency charged with administering the billing system, has simply been unable to ensure that bills sent to counties are correct. Correct billings are a key to getting paid. House Bill 5301 simply does not address the AHCA billing problem. In fact, it makes the situation worse by removing the ability of local of“ cials to check bills for correctness prior to paying. HB 5301 allows the Department of Revenue to withhold local revenue funds in an amount that AHCA believes that each county owes. This provision eliminates the ability of the local community to determine residency prior to bills being paid. Allowing AHCA to tell DOR to hold local funds they believe counties owe prior to the residency issues being verified does not properly protect the taxpayer. This is a major concern, especially considering the poor record that AHCA has regarding getting the monthly bills correct. I am thankful that the Wakulla County BOCC made their concerns known as advocates for taxpayer protection. Please add your voices to theirs and ask the Governor to veto the bill. If this bill were to become law, Wakulla County will be forced to reduce services and possibly look for additional revenue to offset the cost of having our local taxpayers pay for non-residents and state billing errors. Thank you, Rachel Sutz Pienta, PhD Crawfordville Editor, The News: Last week, I read Cynthia Websters Letter to the Editor titled, Article on Solyndra was questionable.Ž I think most people agree it is disgraceful that our government threw away $535 million dollars. To relate that amount of money to our community, $535 million dollars would fund the current General Revenue for the entire Wakulla County School system for 14 years. It is enough money to cover the total federal funding received in the school systems 2011-12 budget for 108 years. Nothing brings the point home like throwing away enough money to educate a generation of children. Until we demand and force our elected of“ cials to get our priorities back in line, they will continue to waste money on things that dont bene“ t taxpayers while they struggle to fund programs that do bene“ t us. As we know, when politicians “ nd themselves in this predicament, the easy solution is to raise taxes, further over feeding an already inef“ cient monster called Government. Ralph Thomas Crawfordville Editor, The News: I have recently been informed of a webpage that allows people to submit letters in support of closing Wakulla Springs to Cave diving. The page has been created in connection with the Friends of Wakulla SpringsŽ and is designed to automatically send a letter, on their behalf, to members of the Florida government and the Department of Environmental Protection. The webpage cites divers as destructive to manatees and other life found in caves. A great deal of research has been done in cave systems around the world that dispute these claims. Numerous other dive sites around the world also exist with similar life and conditions. Divers do not have a negative impact in those places and they wouldnt affect manatees at Wakulla. In fact, some of the most successful relationships between people and manatee occur at dive sites in Florida. Manatee Springs, Weeki Wachee and others all have large populations of manatee as well as large populations of divers … much larger than the numbers which have been estimated at Wakulla. Even the Friends of Wakulla SpringsŽ have posted photos of divers at Wakulla interacting with manatees in their July 2011 newsletter. Anyone who is a diver knows well that the threat to manatee are boats, not divers. In fact, when the Florida DEP held a public conference on opening Wakulla, many divers visited Wakulla for the wild boat tours. They witnessed manatees being run over, at low speed, by the tour boats three times! They argue that the boats have protective covers on the propeller but I somehow doubt the concussion of a boat hull and its protrusions (motor guard, etc.) feels very good to the manatee. This campaign from the FriendsŽ is full of misleading statements and intended to capture the hearts of environmentalists who dont know any better. The cave community is largely environmentalists and we dont want to see the destruction of the caves or the life that lives there. Currently one group of divers is allowed unrestricted access to Wakulla. They have reported spending 300,000 hours diving there. To be a member of that diving group requires you to take all of your training from Global Underwater Explorers (GUE). To do GUE training requires you to buy all Halcyon brand equipment. Halcyon equipment is sold primarily through one store, Extreme Exposure in High Springs. Do you know who owns all three of those businesses? The same person who is the leading individual for the WKPP, the only group of divers allowed in Wakulla and also a member of the FriendsŽ of Wakulla Springs. One individual bene“ ts “ nancially from Wakulla being closed. The public and the wildlife bene“ ts from it being open. Please, dont visit/use the webpage allowing people to blindly support a cause for which they are largely uninformed. There is far more going on here, scienti“ cally, “ nancially and politically than the manatees. No one wants them harmed, least of all divers. Thank you for your time. Travis Kersting Crawfordville Editor, The News: On Sunday, March 26, I was at the checkout in Winn Dixie and I have beeen using a wheelchair to shop for sometime now. This is due to complications from cancer. When I got ready to pay I realized I had left my money and checkcard at home. The young lady behind me paid for my groceries. I am grateful for all the acts of kindness that have been bestowed to me during my illness. I would like to thank the angel with the red hair I believe her name was Becky. God bless you and your family. You are truly an angel. Bobbie Evans Crawfordville Editor, The News: Once again one of our county commissioners, Randy Merritt, is bringing up another proposal that will cost the taxpayers more money. As a handful of special interests pro“ t, possibly even a few commissioners, the rest of the county will be stuck picking up the tab for cleaning up the mess. Watch carefully and see which other commissioners see this as a good idea and then ask yourself, why? How will they be pro“ ting? They certainly arent doing it for a better quality of life for Wakulla County residents! This latest proposal is to allow variances to the current Wetlands Ordinance that would allow building right to the waters edge. This gets into that very last 35 feet that is currently untouchable. Such a proposal is designed for one purpose only, to squeeze every single last square foot out of available property bordering wetlands for development with no consideration for our water quality, property values or wildlife. As more of our fragile wetlands are destroyed as a result and other property values are further devalued, who do you think picks up the tab for this? You will, if this latest assault is allowed! As elections are approaching, think long and hard about where candidates stand on issues and ask yourself whose interests do they really represent. As for those commissioners that arent up for election, theyre hoping you will have forgotten in the next two years. Can you imagine a BOCC that really was looking out for its peoples best interests? Watch the next BOCC meeting on TV, Monday, April 2, starting at 5 p.m. to see who they are really representing. David Damon Crawfordville Editor, The News: I have noticed that Crawfordville has a real need for a fenced in dog park. I would like to propose that a portion of the new community center (at the corner of Trice Lane and Shadeville Road) which sits on 22.31 acres could be used. This would be a great feature for the county. Robert Bell robertbell80@hotmail. comREADERS WRITE:Dont allow building to edge of wetlands ank you, commissioners, for voicing your opposition to Medicaid bill Solyndra was waste of $535 million Reader says editor doesnt have a clueEditor, The News: While I did not appreciate your over-the-top editing of the recent Doesnt have a ClueŽ headline, I “ gured whats good for the goose is good for the gander. Your headline writing represents a view that citizens should be aware of, as you are representing, over and over, a political point of view without directly disclosing it. Shame on you. Alan Brock, Jerry Moore, Randy Merritt, Mike Stewart do not have a clue. To wit: because of no moneyŽ they have abandoned the young families of Wakulla Gardens to ” ooding, dirt roads, nasty septic situations. They sat on their hands while Commissioner Lynn Artz, just a few thousand dollars short of having some national planners coming here to do something for those families, trying to get those residents help. But those four commissioners who do not have a clue cry no money.Ž Lets all watch as they refuse to call a halt to building in our historic subdivisions until the infrastructure is in place and the families there have some services. No money for those taxpayers, but money for the small group who are developing and building. Thats another tax we residents will be paying. Along with all the recent taxes and fees passed by this board, we have the hidden taxŽ of unfunded infrastructure improvements. Every place you look, we have problems. Those problems were caused by thoughtless growth policies. They represent hidden taxesŽ people had no vote on. No impact fees from those moving in, but additional taxes from the local taxpayers. I know for a fact our new administrator is aghast that impact fees are lacking, but the commissioners want jobsŽ and business.Ž So much for that … where are they? Where are those jobs and businesses they promised? By allowing more and more unwanted homes to be built they are adding to future “ nancial burdens and unfunded liability for the existing citizens. Because of traf“ cŽ they want us to pay for 319 with their 2020Ž plan. That plan is designed to benefit developers, not taxpayers. That will slow down commute times even more. Think Capital Circle Northeast in Tallahassee. And that, folks, is a tax. Clueless, absolutely clueless, the board also refuses to take responsibility by setting 2020 in motion with no oversight. Watch as they work out of the Sunshine because the board has given up oversight. Then watch all that money spent so their cronies can get commercial development along 319. I say no. No new half-cent without a 319 moratorium. Vote noŽ on the half-cent 2020 tax, and vote noŽ on the 1-cent tax in 2014. Two of those four commissioners are running again. Tell them to stop with your vote this fall. Lets elect commissioners who have a clue. Lets all Get a Clue!Ž Cordially, Hugh Taylor Crawfordville Editors Note: The full headline of the letter that appeared in the March 8 Wakulla News was Reader says Artz doesnt have a clue.Ž The letter writer stated his opinion that a comment by Artz that she was not going to propose something that makes us look stupid and makes us look like we dont have a clue whats going onŽ and her subsequent vote was evidence she didnt have a clue. The issue being addressed in the letter was a proposal to create a local grouper “ shing season and had nothing to do with growth. In subsequent editions of The News, other letter writers defended Artzs vote on the “ shing issue: On March 15, Artz tries to understand all sides of issues,Ž and on March 22, Artz is studious and independent.ŽWebpage opposing cave diving misleads ere are angels among us Consider a dog park at community center Ms. Randle is a crusader for SWAT

Special to The NewsThe Wakulla Coalition for outh will host a town hall meeting on Tuesday, April 3, to increase awareness about negative consequences of underage drinking and discuss proven steps the community can take to prevent underage drinking. The Town Hall Meeting will be held at the War Eagle Caf at the Wakulla High School from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Light appetizers will be served at 5:30 p.m. This will be the second annual Town Hall Meeting hosted by the WCCY. This years meeting titled Getting to OutcomesŽ is supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in collaboration with the federal governments Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking. The meeting will educate attendees and participants, parents, teachers, of“ cials, youth, and other community leaders and members about the impact that underage drinking has on the community. Presenters from the community will include law enforcement, child advocates, local and government leaders, school leaders, and health experts. Together, participants will explore tangible measures found to be effective in reducing and preventing underage alcohol use in the community. The forum for the meeting will include short presentations followed by direct audience interaction. Underage drinking is a major public health concern throughout the United States and in our community. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, about 10 million 12 to 20-year-olds reported alcohol use during the past month. This number represents more than one out of every four young people in this age group. Evidence-based types of environmental prevention can reduce prevalence of underage drinking in communities. Research also indicates that families exert a great deal of influence on whether a child uses alcohol. What parents may not realize,Ž said Bruce Ashley, president of the coalition, is that children say that their parents disapproval of underage drinking is a key reason they have chosen not to drink.Ž SAMHSA reports that children and teens are less likely to abuse alcohol if parents are involved in their childrens lives, make and enforce clear rules, and are positive role models. The Wakulla County Coalition for Youth encourages all members of the community to attend. GULF COAST Lumber & Supply, Inc.

Special to The NewsFor more than 50 years, pianist and music director Faye Sweeney has been gracing church congregations with her music all over the state of Florida. Its been an amazing journey as God led me to the various churches when my family moved,Ž said Sweeney. For example, in 1975, our family moved to West Florida, and the “ rst Sunday we attended worship there was the “ nal Sunday for their current pianist, so I was called to the music ministry there.Ž While an FSU student in 1962, she began her ministry playing for the Open Bible Church in Tallahassee. Participating in Christian music at nine various churches throughout Florida, Sweeney has served as either the congregational pianist, choir accompanist and/or music director. In 1998 she became the substitute pianist at the Wakulla United Methodist Church (WUMC) only to begin to serve as the primary pianist and music director one year later. Since I arrived at WUMC four years ago,Ž said Pastor Janice Henry-Rinehart, Faye Sweeney has been a faithful servant of the Lord. I sensed within her a very deep discernment of faith and a person who is the real thing when it comes to living out her faith. Although Faye will remain as a member of the church we will surely miss her smiling face from the piano.Ž I have enjoyed serving the Lord in the music ministry at WUMC since 1999,Ž said Sweeney. After 50 years of music ministry, I feel it is time for me to retire and allow others the privilege to serve God through music.Ž Since beginning her ministry, Sweeney has given her talents without compensation. Don Grimes, chair of the churchs Staff Pastor Parish Relations Committee (SPPRC) said, We have been blessed to have this talented Christian lady playing the piano joyfully and faithfully and will truly miss her cheerful ministry.Ž Come experience the spirit of Revival!

The students performed three prepared pieces on stage where they were evaluated by three judges on the basis of performance fundamentals, technical preparation, and overall musical effect. They were also evaluated on their ability to sight-read music by another judge. In this process, the students were given music they have never played before and after just a few minutes of the director preparing them for the piece; the band had one chance to play the song through as best they can. I am so happy for my students,Ž says band director, Laura Hudson. They worked so hard to prepare the music for this festival and I could not be prouder of them.Ž Principal Michael Barwick attended the performance and was very impressed with the musical performance of the students. I dont know when I have ever been prouder of a group of students,Ž said Barwick, They are an outstanding group of young musicians and a credit to our school.Ž Wakulla Middle School eighth grade band.SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSpring Festival Saturday Special to The NewsCrawfordville Elementary School is hosting its annual Spring Festival Saturday, March 31 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Instead of a regular Spring Festival, there will be an old fashioned country fair with all the “ xins.Ž The students are eagerly selling tickets to raise money for playground equipment, technology equipment, books, garden supplies, field trips and much more that our festival proceeds bring to the school. The children who are asking you to purchase tickets might also share that they are trying to get their principal to sit on the roof for 24 hours, get her slimedŽ and earn many schoolwide and individual rewards. It will take $20,000 to get Principal Angie Walker on the roof. That is only $2,000 more than what was raised last year before the day of the festival. Ms. Kelley, the assistant principal, might get kissed by a pig if enough festival tickets are sold before the March 30 deadline, and the guidance counselor, Mr. Vansyckle, might be seen walking around school with bright blue hair. Support Crawfordville and the students by becoming a sponsor, purchasing tickets or stopping by to enjoy a Country FairŽ atmosphere. There will be a giant slide, face painting, popcorn, snow cones, entertainment, moonwalk, dunk tank, a pie baking contest, games, themed baskets, grilled food and bingo. Be sure to stop by Crawfordville Elementary School on March 31 from 1 to 5 p.m. to enjoy a safe day of family fun.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 – Page 9Asports news and team viewsSportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach Local standout track athletes Madison Harris and Cora Atkinson traveled to Tallahassee on March 23-24 to join approximately 2,000 athletes from 100 high schools and 19 universities as they competed in the 33rd FSU Relays, hosted by Florida State University and held at the Mike Long Track on the FSU campus. Over the years, this meet has evolved into one of the most competitive and prestigious meets in the southeast. Both athletes performed well, with Harris placing third overall in the Invitational 800-meter run in a new personal record (PR) time of 2:18.03. This time also lowered Harris school record time, set last year at the Regional Meet, by one second. She followed that up with a solid 5:26.32 performance in the Invitational 1600 meter run, despite having to run at 3 p.m. in 85 degree plus weather. Atkinson, running in the 3200 meter Consolation race, also had an outstanding meet. She ran a personal record time of 12:21.15, which also beat her school record time of 12:44.24, that she ran at the Rutherford Relays in Panama City two weeks ago. Two other WHS athletes also competed in the meet: sophomore Marty Wiedeman facing the same high temperatures, ran a very good 5:45.85 in the Consolation 1600 meter run and senior standout Stanley Linton turned in solid times in the Consolation 3200 (9:57.78) and 1600 (4:42.73) meter runs. Lintons performance in the 3200 meter run was particularly noteworthy, not only because it was a new PR for him, but because he ran almost the whole race with only one shoe on! With less than a half-mile gone in the two mile race, another competitor in the crowded race stepped on Lintons heel and pulled his shoe off. Linton had two choices; he could stop and put the shoe back on and lose considerable time, or he could try and ignore it and keep running. He chose the latter and toughed out the remainder of the race, although the resulting imbalance and rough track surface took its toll on his normally extremely ef“ cient stride. He then had to turn around two hours later and run the 1600 meters under extremely hot conditions. We only took a few athletes to this meet because of the quali“ cation standards and, in the end, all of them performed admirably,Ž noted Coach Paul Hoover. Madis performance in the 800 was outstanding and the guts and determination Stanley showed in the 3200 was really something else,Ž Hoover said. To not only “ nish the race with just one shoe, but to also run a PR is pretty amazing. I told him that because of his run, we were going to have to establish a new school record category … the one-shoed 3200 meters!Ž FWC News The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host its second annual Run WildŽ 6-K race Saturday, April 7 at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park in Tallahassee. Registration begins at 7 a.m., and the race starts at 8 a.m. We encourage anyone to come out to support Floridas wildlife,Ž said Capt. Rett Boyd, event organizer and statewide coordinator of the FWCs Investigations Section. You dont have to be a runner to participate. Well have a live bald eagle, the FWCs manatee mascot and informational booths as well.Ž The event will raise money for the Wildlife Alert Reward Program, a non-pro“ t program offering rewards in exchange for information leading to the arrest of those who violate the states “ sh and wildlife laws and boaters operating vessels under the in” uence of drugs or alcohol. The program was created in 1979 to enlist the publics help in reporting violations and getting involved in the conservation and protection of Floridas valuable natural resources. The race will be at Millers Landing Road, Gate B.Ž Participants can register online or at Capital City Runners at 1866 Thomasville Road. Registration is $18 the day of the race. By ALAN ROSSTony Stewart continues to ride a hot hand, winning the rain-shortened Auto Club 400 Sunday at Fontana, California, the Sprint Cup defending champions second win in “ ve races in 2012. With rain in the forecast, Kyle Busch led the pack out onto Auto Club Speedways two-mile Dshaped oval, leading the race for the “ rst 85 laps through two cycles of green-” ag pit stops. Thats where Busch surrendered the lead to Stewart, who took it the rest of the way „ to Lap 123 „ when the “ rst and “ nal caution came out for rain. Six laps later the race was stopped for good. Denny Hamlin had caught Stewart at Lap 116 but was unable to make a pass for the lead. Stewart then faked off Hamlin, heading for pit row on the caution only to sharply veer back onto the track at the last second. Hamlin continued on into the pits, a move that ultimately cost him second place (he “ nished 11th). The luckiest driver in the bunch was Jimmie Johnson. The Lowes 48 car “ nished 10th but was smoking heavily as the race was red-” agged. Had the rain subsided, Johnson likely would have wound up near the bottom of the pack due to lengthy repairs. Early leader Busch took second, with Dale Earnhardt Jr., third. The Cup boys head back across the continent to Martinsville this Sunday. ROADSIDE RANT: NASCARs scheduling has always left a few of us scratching our heads. Last week, the Cup caravan was in Bristol, Tenn.; next week Martinsville, Va. Thrust in between was a 6,000-mile round trip for a mere 129 laps of racing at Fontana. What could have been a mileage-saving cost cutter of major proportions for the sport instead turned into a spending spree. Sticking in a cross-country road trip between races at two Eastern venues is economically short sighted. At a time when gas prices are through the roof, NASCAR wont earn any smart points. Why didnt they tack the Fontana race onto the Phoenix-Las Vegas swing a couple of weeks back? MALAYSIA GRAND PRIX: Rain created havoc in Kuala Lampur Sunday, scuttling the efforts of McLarens front row-starting Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button and vaulting Fernando Alonso into a surprising win for previously underperforming Ferrari. The race, which began on inters,Ž the intermediate rain tire, was red” agged for over an hour by a monsoon. By the time of the cessation, Alonso had jumped by both McLarens, which had been sabotaged by their own crews faulty pit stops. Defending champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull Racing and Button, last weeks winner in Australia, both finished outside the points. Surprising second-year driver Sergio Perez, in a Sauber, chased Alonso, the new Formula One standings leader, to the finish line, followed by Hamilton, who logged his second straight third-place “ nish. Perez is the “ rst Mexican-born driver to stand on an F1 podium since Pedro Rodriguez took second in the 1971 Dutch Grand Prix. INDYCAR ST. PETERSBURG: Helio Castroneves won his “ rst IndyCar race in two years and became the “ rst driver in the series to win three Grands Prix of St. Petersburg. Castroneves, powering a Penske Chevrolet, overtook race leader Scott Dixon following his “ nal pit stop with an outside pass. The upbeat Brazilian had smooth sailing after that. While Roger Penske may not be partnering with Chevrolet in NASCAR until 2013, the legendary CaptainŽ wasted no time in initiating his new association with the American car manufacturer in IndyCar, taking it to Victory Lane in his “ rst start with Chevy. Six of the first eight “ nishers drove Chevies. Last seasons champion, Dario Franchitti, “ nished a disappointing 13th. The series heads to Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama this Sunday.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsI was out in the refuge a few days ago, and was surprised to see both a Common Loon and a Horned Grebe in Stony Bayou Pool No. 1. Why? Because this pool has had its water control structures opened which allowed a high tide to completely “ ll this pool with waters from the Gulf, then closed to keep these waters in. So, the water in the pool I guess is as salty as the Gulf. Plus we had very little rain this last few weeks, and so there is less fresh water to dilute the pool. So for the “ rst time since I moved to this area in 1986 these two aquatic birds, that are normally seen out by the lighthouse along our coast in the winter, were at the beginning of the watery areas of the Lighthouse Drive, not out in the bay or Gulf waters. At least thats my reasoning. Both were in their drab winter plumage too. Nature is always throwing a curve ball at us … taking us off guard with a surprise. For instance, on Sunday, Eve, Patti and I were watching on the Discovery Channel a new documentary on the animals of the North and South Poles, (which also will air next Sunday at 8 p.m.). It was done beautifully, with exceptional photography. One segment was on a moth caterpillar called the Woolly Bear (not the Woolly Bear caterpillar we see in the eastern U.S. … brown with a black band across the middle, and later turns into the Isabella moth). A few butter” y and moth caterpillars overwinter, that is they do not go into the cocoon (moth) or chrysalis (butter” y) in the fall, but stay a caterpillar right through the winter, but rarely as much as two winters. But these Arctic Woolly Bears apparently have built-in antifreeze in their blood system which keeps the ice crystals from bursting their minute veins, overwinter 14 times before making a cocoon. Patti, who is very informed about these creatures, about fell out of her chair when hearing this. Yes, nature has a lot of hidden secrets. Another example: On our recent trip in March to two nature-type lodges in Belize, we were in for another surprise. I was reminded of this shockerŽ when I stepped out onto our back porch last week just after dark. Little micro-moths and other ” ying insects were practically attaching to our windows and screens, and as I walk in my yard though the daylight hours Im constantly seeing our threeto six-inch Green Anole lizards. They are abundant because we have an abundance of insects. But in Belize there appeared to be few insects, even in the two huge nature jungle preserves we were in, except for hearing a few Gecko lizards which made a bird-like chirping sound at night around and in the buildings, we saw no other insect eating lizards, and the insects were all but missing. You could leave your door wide open at night and not a bug or moth ” ew in! February and sometimes into March in central Belize can be wet when cold fronts reach that far south into Central America. And May can be hot, as Patti has found out on previous trips, but April seems to be the perfect time to visit there, for the temperature is perfect, and there are no bugs, More on Belize in my next article.Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHNature holds a lot of surprisesScott Rojas took his 6-year-old daughter Isabelle “ shing from his uncles dock at Shell Point. Using her own Zebco rod and reel with live shrimp for bait, Isabelle caught two trout and a lady“ sh.

A perfect outingSPECIAL TO THE NEWSFWC News Fishermen targeting gag grouper in state waters off the coast of Wakulla, Franklin, Jefferson and Taylor counties will be able to take some of their catch home for dinner starting April 1. This regional season will end June 30 and is for 2012 only. The season also includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters (from shore to nine miles out) off these four counties may not be taken ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding the Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide “ shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. The FWC found that overall “ shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties, because it is the least densely populated region of Floridas Gulf Coast. Providing this spring season will balance the economic and social needs of this region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In Gulf of Mexico federal waters (beyond nine miles) and in the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, “ shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Oct. 31. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not open during the Julythrough-October season. Gag grouper may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties during the July-through-October season, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits did not change and remain at 22 inches and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

Some say it is all about who you know. This week I am exceptionally grateful for Duane Treadon who put together the column. Not only because I have been out of town, but because he was instrumental in organizing the effort to have the name of our flotilla more accurately represent the area and boating population we serve. Whats in a name? To the members of Flotilla 12 St. Marks, a lot. With the retirement of Flotilla 15 St. George Island in 2008 and Flotilla 13 Shell Point earlier this year the St. Marks Flotilla has seen its Area of Responsibility (AOR) triple in size. When founded in 1988 the St. Marks Flotillas AOR covered the coastal waters from just southeast of the Econfina River to about halfway between Shell Point and St. Marks and included the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers. Today the Flotillas AOR continues west to Apalachicola. When looking at nautical charts of the new AOR, members of the Flotilla realized they were not just St. Marks anymore. During recent Flotilla meetings members brought up concerns that continued use of the St. Marks name may confuse the boating public as to the area served by the Flotilla. With an active detachment based in Carrabelle there was legitimate concern that public affairs and education events advertised under the St. Marks name might have some thinking they needed to travel to St. Marks for the program. The Flotillas expanding web presence was also something to consider where a geographically specific name didnt really tell the Flotillas whole story. After careful consideration, review, and discussion the Flotilla narrowed its choices down to a few and in the end decided that Apalachee Bay best represented the entirety of its newly expanded AOR. With the decision made, a formal request for a Flotilla name change from St. Marks to Apalachee Bay was submitted to the Auxiliary Directors of“ ce in New Orleans where it received a favorable review and authorization. The newly named Flotilla 12 Apalachee Bay continues the Auxiliary tradition of serving the boating public that was “ rst started in our area by Flotilla 13 Shell Point in 1966. If interested in contributing to this tradition and joining the Apalachee Bay Flotilla contact Norma Hill by email at fso-hr@uscgaux. net. As Sherrie always says, safe boating is no accident.

Hose Diving Long before there was Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatuses (SCUBA), there was hose or Surface Supplied (SS) diving. Breathing air was pumped down to a person at depth through a rubber pipe. In the beginning, the pump at the surface was as primitive as the helmet at depth. Manually driven bellows similar to those used to stoke a smiths “ re, were constructed to manage the greater pressure required of the depth of the diver. One or two people would rock a lever back and forth, or up and down, driving a single piston in and out of a tube with valves at the end. Attached to the other end of the tube, a diver would wear an open bell helmet a top his head. The surface supplied hose delivered air that kept the water level in the helmet below the chin of the occupant. Sponge divers off Tarpon Springs Florida used just such a diving device a century ago. And Europeans used surface supplied breathing gas to salvage sunken ships centuries before that. Today, Surface Supplied Diving is even more popular amongst the recreational diving community. They have gas and electric driven pumps to replace the manual systems, but otherwise the pumps are rather similar. The delivery hose looks like a yellow garden hose similar to the one with which you water the plants. At the other end, the diver or divers breathe from regulators similar to the second stages of their scuba brethren. Most gasoline-powered pumps run for three hours before refueling; permitting a team of two a very long dive depending upon how deep they dive. The yellow 100-foot long delivery hose ” oats, so divers stay within a 100-foot radius of the boats safety dive ” ag as speci“ ed by Florida Law. Other boats must stay 100 feet away from the red and white Diver Down ” ag. I installed a surface supplied compressor on the bow of my boat. Others set it in a ” oat that follows the divers around on the reef. Imagine no heavy cylinder on your back, easy water entry and exits, and three hour dives. These rigs are ideal for shallow water diving, lobster “ shing in the Keys, scallop “ shing off St. Marks, and keeping the children corralled near the boat. I moved my children from snorkel diving to scuba through an intermediate surface supplied step. Of course I was in the water with them, and insisted upon training to national standards, resulting in hours of thrilling time underwater. Last week the clam aqua-culturists visited our shop in search of surface supplied technology. They are placing their baby clams this month in waters less than 10 feet deep. They spend a lot of time in shallow water. I once carried the same 50 pound surface supplied compressor on my back “ ve miles through the jungles of Palau (an island in the Paci“ c) to dive shallow lakes too distant to supply with scuba cylinders. After the “ rst day, all I carried in was a gallon of gasoline each day. The clam farmers love this “ ve century old diving concept as much as the rest of us. IF WE DON’T HAVE IT… WE CAN GET IT!

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The NewsA group of six FrenchCanadians visiting Florida for two weeks found unexpected enjoyment when an act of kindness by a Wakulla County resident turned a disaster into a pleasant experience this week. One of the Canadians lost a large sum of money and other possessions when he left his fanny pack at the Kangaroo convenience store in Medart after purchasing gas. Andre Lamontague of Quebec was cold after fueling up and decided to put on his chaps. He set aside his fanny pack and did not realize it was missing until the group of six Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders got three-quarters of the way to Panama City. Crawfordville resident Johnny B. Ross Jr. found the wallet on Tuesday, March 20, and turned it in to Deputy Ward Kromer. Sheriff Donnie Crum met the grateful Canadians on Thursday, March 22 when they came back through Wakulla County to pick up Lamontagues fanny pack. Lamontague said he received a telephone call from the WCSO dispatch alerting him that the fanny pack had been turned in. I know Im lucky,Ž said Lamontague in his heavy Quebecois accent. The money and the credit cards were all there.Ž He added that the two week vacation has been made even more enjoyable by the honesty displayed by local residents. It is fantastic,Ž added Andres friend, Raymond Morin. That was unreal. Everything was there.Ž The motorcycle crew was planning to leave Wakulla County to visit the horse properties in Ocala before heading on toward Morins Florida home in Sarasota. I was pleased to be able to meet and talk to them,Ž said Sheriff Donnie Crum. I am glad that they received such a good view of Wakulla County and I am proud of Johnny B. for what he did.Ž SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAndre Lamontague of Quebec holds the recovered fanny pack that was turned in by a citizen. Raymond Morin is on the far right with Wakulla Sheriff Donnie Crum and the other members of the traveling party.Tourists wallet returned after its found at storeBy SUSAN BLAKENational Forests in Florida Were not out of the woods yet with this wet weather,Ž said Forest Supervisor Susan JeheberMatthews of the National Forests in Florida. The signi“ cantly low rainfall has not impacted drought conditions,Ž she said. This has reduced our ability to execute prescribed burns in our forests.Ž To add to the situation, state and federal “ re experts believe springtime may introduce especially dry conditions similar to the wild“ re season of 1998, when “ res burned almost a half-million acres across the state. That year Flagler and Volusia County residents were forced to evacuate and over 300 homes and 34 businesses were destroyed or damaged. Fire suppression efforts cost $130 million with the loss of $300 million in timber throughout the state. According to Meteorologist Sean Luchs of the Florida Forest Service, lower than normal moisture levels are caused by the temperature oscillation in the tropical Paci“ c near the Equator known as La Nina, a weather trend that results in dry conditions with little rain. We take a look at sea surface temperatures in a certain area of the Paci“ c Ocean and compare it to its normal value,Ž said Luchs. Cooler than normal we call it La Nina; warmer than normal we call it El Nino.Ž Because the Pacific Ocean covers a big chunk of the earths surface, atmospheric changes such as La Nina and El Nino can in” uence weather across the globe. The La Nina and El Nino cycle generally tends to run on a one and half to three-year oscillation, but that doesnt always happen,Ž said Luchs. La Nina conditions in Florida started to emerge in the second half of 2010. According to Luchs, although there has already been 18 months of dry weather, these conditions are predicted to continue. Prescribed burning is a practice that not only reduces the amount of fuels that can lead to catastrophic wild“ res, but also promotes healthy forests. In addition, prescribed burns move slowly and pose little or no threat to the safety of wildlife. On the Apalachicola National Forest, FMO Steve Parrish prepares for an active wild“ re season as a result of extremely low levels of rainfall this year. Because of the weather conditions we havent been able to burn as much as we have in the past,Ž said Parrish. Were only at approximately 12,000 acres and should be upwards of 40,000.Ž State and federal agencies have been especially careful to plan prescribed burns away from highways due to increased fog conditions, which can carry smoke and impact visibility. Most of the “ res we are dealing with right now are human-caused,Ž said Parrish. We need hikers and campers to do their part and make sure their “ res are extinguished before leaving campsites or recreation areas.ŽDemanding prescribed “ re season for Apalachicola National Forest A prescribed burn near the Clear Lake Wilderness Study Area on March 26.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 – Page 13A reportsLaw Enforcement and CourtsOn March 18, Deputy Mike Zimba investigated a traf“ c crash involving a 2005 Jeep Cherokee that crashed into a power pole and business sign on Highway 267 near Savannahs Country Buffet in Wakulla Station and burst into ” ames. Nobody was observed inside the vehicle by the deputy but a very short time later the engine exploded and the vehicle became fully engulfed in ” ames. Wakulla “ re“ ghters put out the 2:14 a.m. blaze and the owner of the vehicle was identi“ ed. Earlier during the shift, Deputy Zimba observed the same vehicle pass him at a high rate of speed and his radar gun registered 115 miles per hour. Deputy Zimba determined that the motorist ran the stop sign at Shadeville Highway and Highway 267 and traveled toward Woodville Highway at a high rate of speed. The vehicle traveled through the intersection and slid sideways crashing into a restaurant sign at an estimated 60 to 70 miles per hour. The vehicle collided with the sign poles and was wedged between the posts. While the vehicle burned, the fire reached a power cable which caused a spark to shoot across the power lines over the roadway. Progress Energy responded and cleared the scene.

Page 14A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comMake A Difference Day By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netVolunteerWakullas “ fth annual Make A Difference Day was held on March 24 at Hudson Park. Booths lined the park with representatives from various groups and non-pro“ t organizations to letting the community know what services were available. Some of those in attendance were the American Red Cross, Wakulla Pregnancy Center, the library, Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Wakulla Fire and Rescue, Wakulla County Historical Society, NAMI Wakulla, Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce, Healthy Families, Camp Catch A Dream at Circle C Ranch and more. Participants were able to speak with representatives from these groups about the possibility of volunteering with them. Vice president of the historical society, Richard Harden, said 10 volunteers signed up to help the society. Participants were treated to a free lunch and entertainment by the Wakulla Wigglers, as well as chances to win prizes in a drawing. Children were also given the opportunity to ride a horse named Fred or pet a pony, Sweetie, from Circle C Ranch. For more information about VolunteerWakulla, visit www.volunteerwakulla.org or contact Pam Mueller at 926-7415. The Wakulla Wigglers perform on stage at the pavilion. People line up for the free lunch that was offered at Make A Difference Day. Making new friends, above, and “ re“ ghters had a booth seeking to attract new volunteers. Born in Arran March 4, 1932 to Wilmer and Oma Lee Haddock Dykes. Graduated from Sopchoppy High School in 1949 with many lifetime friends and made scores of friends through the years. Jimmie was a ”y “sherman extraordinaire, spending many hours with friends swapping “sh tales and comparing “sh. Lambert Goodson was a very special friend and the best of bass “shermen. Hardy Revell knew the waterways and creeks and all around super friend as was Jerry Reeves, a long time friend. A gift to Jimmie at age 18, set him up to be one of the best ”y “shermen in our area. Someday I will write about “shing with him. Jimmie married October 11, 1952, and was drafted one week later. Three weeks later he caught a bus to Ft. Jackson, S.C. After basic training he was on a train to Camp Roberts, Calif., and shipped out to the far east command to serve in Korea. He helped capture Heartbreak Ridge and Old Baldy. He returned to Wakulla County turning down schooling and a promotion. He was a sergeant. His answer to the of“cers, Sir, you dont know about Wakulla County and what is waiting on me, but let me assure you I have an airplane waiting to take me to Tallahassee, Fla.Ž He arrived at 9:30 p.m. that night to a wife, his mother and brothers and sister. The following hunting season he hunted with my stepfather Bubba Adams and Mr. Commodor Taff. But “shing was always on his mind. Hard work was what Jimmie knew best and never backed down from it, always trying to better our lives. In 1958 he built our house out of 30,000 bricks from an old jail here in Crawfordville. His “rst child was born March 9, 1958, and we moved in December 1958. This was accomplished with the help of Hargrove Moore, Douglas Roger, Cecil Forbes, Dick Snyder, Bobby Posey, and other very special Wakulla County people. So many people impacted his life and he loved and respected all of them. He leaves his son to catch his share of the “sh and I know he will do just that. Jimmie built the J. B. Dykes Center at 2698 Crawfordville Road in the year 1968. Some of those bricks came from old “re places in Medart and one from his grandmother, Lanie Haddocks house. Thanks for taking a moment to remember a husband, father, grandfather, veteran, and native of Wakulla County. As he told the of“cers trying to hold him in the Army, Come go with me, I am on my way to Gods country. He is glad you found us and I am sure he is glad you are here.Ž Jimmie would also want me to tell the young men to man upŽ and be a good father. It holds a high rank. He died March 18, 2008.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netFor most people, they know where they will lay their head at night, where their next meal is coming from, how they will pay their bills. But for 14.1 percent of Wakulla County residents who are living in poverty, one or all of these is a struggle. The federal poverty guidelines are established by the Department of Health and Human Services. A twoperson household making $14,710 would be considered to be living in poverty, while the guideline for a family of four is $22,350. For each additional person in a family, $3,820 is added. The lack of shelter, food, healthcare and transportation are major issues facing those in need. While there are programs and services available to assist them in Wakulla County, the need far outweighs the amount they are able to provide. Theres a lot going on in Leon County, but theres not a lot going on here,Ž says Jack Keillor, emergency assistance case manager for Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida. Catholic Charities offers emergency rental and utility assistance, food and case management to clients within its seven county region, which includes Wakulla County. There is a lack of adequate, affordable housing in the county, as well as a lack of places that offer rental or home ownership assistance to low-income residents. In the world, 95 million people are facing housing problems, according to Habitat for Humanity International. These problems include the rent or mortgage payment being too high, overcrowding, poor quality shelter or homelessness. Wakulla County is not spared from this problem. In this economy, many people are struggling. People who are homeless or who are unable to “ nd decent housing could be there for a number or reasons: the inability to “ nd a steady job, decline in health, loss of a job, being on a “ xed income, taking a lesser paying job or parttime job, etc. Those who are struggling include men, women, children and families. According to the 2010 Census, those who are under the age of 18 and living in poverty is 20 percent. The Wakulla County School District has a record of 62 students in the county who lack a “ xed, adequate, regular night-time residence and have been certi“ ed as homeless, according to Tanya English, student services director. Most of these students are sharing housing due to economic conditions, such as two families sharing a three-bedroom home, she says. Some families are also living in travel trailers and hotels. Theres a lack of affordable housing,Ž Keillor says. Keillor says those who are about to be evicted and are in danger of becoming homeless can contact Catholic Charities for help. Theres a need,Ž Keillor says. The calls are coming in.Ž Keillor has a certain amount of money he can spend in the county each month, but says he tries to help anyone who needs it. When a client is given rental assistance, Keillor says he goes out and inspect the rental property to ensure it exists and that it is safe.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 – Page 3BContinued from Page 1B SUBSTANDARD HOUSING A lot of houses Ive seen arent adequate,Ž Keillor says. Sometimes windows are broken, plumbing doesnt work and there is lead-based paint, he adds. Peggy Mackin, president of Habitat for Humanity of Wakulla County, says she too has seen the horri“ c conditions some people are living in. Habitat offers home ownership opportunities to families who are unable to obtain conventional “ nancing and are typically 30 to 50 percent of the areas median income, which is set at $66,000 for Wakulla County. In one instance, she says a family of “ ve was living in a single wide mobile home with two bedrooms. One person couldnt walk through the kitchen if another person was in there,Ž Mackin says. Its so sad.Ž And some of these people are paying $600 to $700 a month to a landlord that refuses to lower the rent, she says. And in my estimation, they should be condemned,Ž Mackin says of some of the homes. Another young couple was living between in-laws, she says. Wakulla County Code Enforcement Of“ cer Jaime Baze also knows “ rst hand about the substandard housing in the area. Baze says there are several landlords in the county who own numerous rental properties that do not meet minimum housing standards. Some landlords take the rent check and thats it, making no repairs to the property, she says. They have the funds and the means to “ x it,Ž Baze says. But many dont. Bazes of“ ce is complaintdriven and 90 percent of the complaints received involve rental properties, especially mobile homes. Many renters are just grateful to have a place to stay, but many of the conditions are deplorable, she says. Its sad to see some of those homes out there they lease out,Ž Baze said. Some landlords charge a small amount of rent each month or charge a weekly rate and do not “ x or repair anything, Baze says. It doesnt give them a right to let these conditions go on,Ž she says. In February 2011, the county adopted a property maintenance code which dealt with substandard housing and established minimum housing standards. It also outlined the responsibility of the owner to maintain the property and structures, regulations for exterior and interior structures, requirement for plumbing “ xture and facility, requirements for heating, mechanical and electrical and pest elimination. Baze says before this ordinance, her office did not have a way to address these situations or take action. The ordinance protects occupants, she adds. The ordinance was a blessing for the occupants,Ž Baze says of some of the homes in the county. After a complaint is received, Baze will send out a pre-inspection notice to the property owner giving them 10 days to “ x the problem. If it is not “ xed, they come out and inspect the property. A corrective action plan is given to the owner and they have 30 days to comply. If they do not comply, they can appear before the Code Enforcement Board who can impose “ nes or hire a private vendor to make the repairs and place a lien on the property. One of the big issues she sees is the structural soundness of ” oors. They arent sturdy and are falling through. She also sees roof leaks, mold, faulty plumbing, insulation coming out the bottom of the home, pest infestation, etc. If the structure is deemed unsafe, the tenant would have to vacate the property until it is repaired, Baze says. This causes some people to back off because they do not have anywhere else to go. Some people are also afraid of retaliation from the landlord and being evicted, she adds. Her job is to protect property values, maintain a livable housing stock, protect property rights of citizens and keep the community safe. Were protecting the life and the property,Ž Baze says. Baze says she has seen people living in a home with the roof caved-in and tarps placed to cover the hole. She has also seen people living in campers, which isnt allowed. One family was living in a tent next to their home because it was in foreclosure and they couldnt afford to pay their power bill. Baze says it is a sad situation and her of“ ce is there to help anyone with property issues. For rentals, she suggests having tenant contact her of“ ce to perform an inspection prior to signing a lease. Homes may sit vacant or abandoned for six months and then they are rented out, she says. Theres no telling the condition they are in,Ž Baze says. HOUSING ASSISTANCE Rental and housing assistance can be found through the countys housing department, as well as Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, local churches and Promise Land Ministries. Wakulla County receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the Housing Choice Voucher Program, or Section 8, which helps pay for a portion of the rent for low-income families. This program is administered by Meridian Community Services Group. Section 8 assists very low-income families, the elderly and disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord with federal funding and the family pays the difference. The familys income may not exceed 50 percent of the median income for the county, which is $66,000, according to HUD. By law, 75 percent of vouchers must be given to applicants whose income does not exceed 30 percent of the median income. Housing voucher families are required to pay 30 percent of its monthly adjusted gross income for rent and utilities. According to HUD, the demand for assistance often exceeds the resources available so there is usually a waiting list. Sonora Walker, program coordinator for Section 8, could not be reached to provide further information. According to HUD, the fair market rent for Wakulla County for a two-bedroom home is $690. The hourly wage necessary to afford a two-bedroom home is $13.27, with an income of $27,600. There is not a single county in the U.S. where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a onebedroom apartment at what HUD determines to be fair market rent, according to Habitat for Humanity. The fair market rent for a onebedroom home in Wakulla County is $620. Meridian also administers the State Housing Initiative Partnership program for the county which funds emergency repairs, new construction, rehabilitation, down payment and closing cost assistance, impact fees, construction and gap “ nancing, mortgage buy-downs, acquisition of property, matching dollars for federal housing grants and programs and homeownership counseling. Wakulla County received an allocation of $350,000 during the 201112 “ scal year for the SHIP program. Catholic Charities also tries to help low-income families.

Just Come By And Take A L KWe Also Accept Donated Merchandise H a b i t a t f o r H u m a n i t y Habitat for Humanity “ R e S t o r e ” “Re-Store”Shadeville Highway 926-4544 Continued from Page 3B Weve been blessed in that weve had some funding,Ž Keillor says. But not enough to meet the needs.Ž With the decline in the economy, the numbers of those in needs has grown and the amount of help and donations has decreased. Everything is still tight,Ž Keillor says. Many of his clients are new and have never reached out for help before, he says. These are people in the middle class who never thought this would happen to them.Ž he says. He believes the middle class has shrunk, which means those who used to support non-profits like Catholic Charities are no longer able to. Along with providing monetary assistance and food, Catholic Charities also tries to educate its clients on “ nances, budgeting, tenant laws, basic skills, taxes, etc. Instead of a handout, its a hand up,Ž Keillor says. The idea is to create sustainability, he says. Another program that helps those lower income families with housing assistance is Habitat for Humanity. Since its inception in Wakulla County in 1998, they have built nine homes and are looking for their 10th family. Mackin says Habitat believes every person deserves a decent home to live in. Homeowners must go through a qualifying period and cannot have bad credit, Mackin says. They must show a need for a home, an effort to work on getting one and the ability to pay the mortgage. A $250 down payment is required, as well as sweat equity hours. The homeowner is required to work on the next house. Mackin says the homeowner enters into a 20-year mortgage with Habitat, who does not charge interest. Mortgage payments are typically $300 to $550 a month for a one to four bedroom home. A three-bedroom home cannot be built larger than 1,050 square feet, according to Habitat for Humanity International. Mackin says most of the land for the homes is donated and the homes are located in different areas of the county, including Panacea, off Rehwinkle Road, Wakulla Gardens and Magnolia Ridge. We dont want to have a Habitat Village,Ž Mackin says. The people are put out into the community so they become a part of it, she says. They are able to keep the price down because of free labor, a break on supplies, donations, money from the Re-store and fundraisers. Many of the people who qualify are under the poverty level, Mackin says. Its nice to see them get a house,Ž Mackin says. There is a need for decent housing in this county, Mackin says. The low income in Wakulla County are a forgotten people,Ž she says. This gives people the opportunity to become homeowners who otherwise may have never had the chance. Owning a home is what makes them proud,Ž Mackin says. Those who receive a home are also required to take classes at the Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce on house upkeep, yard, “ nance, etc. They also receive information about crime prevention and smoke detectors from the sheriffs of“ ce. We encourage people to better themselves,Ž Mackin says. Habitat will hold an application meeting on May 15 for the 10th house. They are also in need of support and donations to continue their work and help raise money for the 11th house. OTHER RESOURCES Other programs available are Promise Land Ministries, which provides shelter to men who are homeless, suffered a personal tragedy or need to get away from inappropriate environments. They are also a rehabilitation facility that operates a 32-week program that takes each client through a 12step process. Radical Restoration Ministries also provides a Christcentered ministry that is dedicated to rehabilitating women upon their release from incarceration or rehab centers.

The Hardship Assistance Program was created to assist residential property owners who meet the eligibility criteria, with the “ nancial burden imposed by the Solid Waste and Fire Services Assessment. In September 2011, the Board implemented a Solid Waste Assessment in the amount of $196 and approved the Fire Protection Assessment in the amount of $75 for residential, 6-cents per square foot for nonresidential and 17-cents per acre for agricultural/vacant property. The Board recently amended the income criteria which is determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The following income must be demonstrated: Extremely Low (30 percent) Income Limits: € 1 Person: $13,200 € 2 Person: $15,050 € 3 Person: $16,950 € 4 Person: $18,800 € 5 Person: $20,350 In order to apply for hardship assistance, citizens must complete the application and “ le with the county administrators office for consideration prior to June 1. In addition, the applicant must provide substantive documentation of gross income of all occupants 18 years of age and older. To learn more about the eligibility criteria for the Hardship Assistance Application and to obtain the Hardship Application, please visit the County website (www.mywakulla. com) or contact the county administration office at 926-0919.County accepting applications for hardship assistanceBy TAWRA KELLAMLivingOnADime.com Frugal living is all about making the most with what you already have. Here are 11 tips from LivingOnADime.com to help you get started: 1. Barter for services when possible. For example, we exchanged lawn mower repair from our neighbor for a table (garage sale “ nd) that he was looking for. 2. Learn to “ x things for yourself. These days, with the internet making information so easily available, you can “ x most things yourself. We do 95 percent of the repairs around our house and we arent that handy. We just keep looking for the information about how to do it and keep working until we get it “ xed. 3. Stop eating out. I know you hear it all the time but STOP! The averageŽ family spends $300-$500 a month just eating out! Eating out truly is one of the biggest causes of debt. I am always amazed how someone can be totally brokeŽ and cant pay their bills but are still able to go to the drive-thru of their favorite restaurant. 4. Study nutrition information and “ nd out what you need to eat to have a healthy and balanced diet. Then stop eating the junk and eat healthy inexpensive meals at home. We have a lot of menu ideas here at LivingOnADime.com that can help you get started. 5. Live without it. If something breaks and you dont have the money to “ x or if you are out of something and you dont have the money to buy more, “ gure out a way to live without it. If the lawn mower breaks, can you borrow a friends lawn mower? If your washer breaks, go to the laundromat. If you break your tea kettle, use a saucepan to heat water. In most instances, you can “ nd a way to make do or do without something until you have the cash saved up. 6. Do things for free. Go to the library, have a picnic or read a book. Kids are just as happy playing with mom and dad in the backyard as they are going to the zoo. If you cant pay cash for the fun stuffŽ you can always have fun at home. 7. Buy items used. We buy 90 percent of the items for ourselves used. Going to yard sales and thrift stores does not take any longer than going to a retail store but you can save 90 percent off the retail price! 8. Just say no...to your kids. Let kids buy their own toys and extras! Our kids pay for all their own soda, candy, treats like nail polish, their own computers and extras. You are not the Bank of Mom so just say no! 9. Find a cheaper way to do things. Go to a beauty school to get your hair colored (or dont have your hair colored at all it isnt something you need to survive). Go to a mechanic school to get your car “ xed. Hire a kid instead of a lawn service to mow your yard (only if you cant do it yourself for medical reasons) Paint your own house instead of hiring someone, cut the cable and the cell phone (gasp!), and have birthday parties at your house. There is almost always a cheaper way to do things so try to “ nd the cheapest way and save some money! 10. Cut kids activities. Most kids are in way too many activities and theyre often expensive. I know families who pay $175 a month for gymnastics lessons but cant pay the mortgage. There is a problem with this kind of thinking. Kids wont die if you dont give them all the lessons and activities you cant afford. 11. Get it for free. When the landscapers were laying sod in our new neighborhood, I asked for the scraps and we were almost able to put in our entire backyard for free. When they were building houses, I asked for the 2x4s that were going into the dumpster and got enough wood for our shed. When they were pouring concrete patios, I asked for the leftover concrete and they just poured our entire cement pad for our shed for free! If friends have kids older than your kids, ask if you can have their hand me downs when they are done. Get as much as you can for free and you can save thousands of dollars.11 tips for frugal living Please Recycle PANACEA HATSAFACTHATSEARLE KIRKWOOD850-524-9103UNDERTHEOAK ON US 98 PANACEA Of WakullaHeating & AirServing Wakulla & Franklin Counties850-926-5592Sales & Service All Makes & Models3232 Crawfordville Hwy. € CrawfordvilleOwned & Operated by Gary LimbaughLic. # CAC1814304 Swallow-Tailed Kites by George WeymouthA GicleeŽ Non-Fading, Signed & Numbered Call George Weymouth To Order Shipping Farrington Law Of“ceDeirdre A.

Anhingas live near forest lakes and waterways, and they dive underwater to capture fish. The strange thing about these birds is that they don't have a water-repellent coating on their feathers like other birds. After diving for their meals, they have to find a safe place to perch where they can stretch their wings out to dry before flying. Answers: Puzzles are provided by Kidsville Publishing. On April 12, 1961, a young Russian man named Yuri Gagarin flew into history. He was the first human being ever to be sent up into space. He rode in a spacecraft called the Vostok The Vostok weighed five tons and could only carry one person. It was later redesigned to be able to carry three people. What do you call a Russian astronaut? They're called cosmonauts. So the first person in space wasn't an astronaut at allhe was a cosmonaut! The first American in space was Alan Shepard. On May 5, 1961, he rode on a ship called the Freedom 7 and reached an altitude of 116 miles. Today, people go into space for many reasons. They may use the space shuttle to launch satellites into space, or they may do experiments while in orbit. Americans and Russians now work together to learn more about space. C APRIL

March 29, 2012 5167-0329 TWN Sopchoppy NFEAPC 5163-0329 NOTICE FOR EARLY PUBLIC REVIEW OF A PROPOSAL TO SUPPORT ACTIVITY IN THE 100-YEAR FLOOD PLAIN AND WETLAND FLORIDA CDBG GRANT # 12DB-OH-02-75-02-N27 Date of Notice: March 29, 2012 Name of Responsible Entity: City of Sopchoppy, Florida Address: 105 Municipal Avenue(P.O. Box 1219) City, State, Zip Code: Sopchoppy, Florida 32358 Telephone Number: 850-962-4611 TO: All Interested Parties: This is to give notice that the City of Sopchoppy has received a Community Development Block Grant (Neighborhood Revitalization)from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity(DEO). The funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban development (HUD). The primary project (met needs) is to provide flood, drainage and recreation improvements in areas that do not meet current day standards. The proposed CDBG recreation improvements(met needs) will include a play station for younger children with site improvements such as a low protective wall around the play station that can also serve as seating. This portion of the CDBG project will be located at Myron B. Hodge City Park which is adjacent to the Sopchoppy River. The proposed flood and drainage improvements (met needs) include installing a large stormwater pipe in the existing ditch on Gulf Street and backfilling it so that only a small swale will be needed along the street. Also proposed is replacing the culvert at Park Avenue with a new large size one which would include a large drainage retention box. After the met needs are accomplished, and if funds are available, future needs will include ditch reshaping and culverts for other streets that are near Gulf Street and Park Ave. The future need streets include Summer Street, Municipal Ave., Blossom Ave., Sheldon Street, Argyle Street, Faith Ave. and Yellow Jacket Avenue. This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4)of Executive Order 11988 for Floodplain Management, and is implemented by HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for the HUD action that is within and/or affects a floodplain. The City has determined that this project passes through the 100-year floodplain (and wetlands) on publicly owned property and/or public right of way. There is no practical alternative to the proposed project. The project will have no significant impact on the environment for the following reasons: 1. Facilities will be in the existing street right-of-way and/or publicly owned property which is already improved. 2. All construction will be properly permitted by the applicable agencies. The City of Sopchoppy is interested in discussing alternatives to this project and securing public perceptions of possible adverse impacts that could result from the project as well as potential minimization measures. Additional agencies involved in this project include the State of Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Florida State Clearinghouse(having reviewed the project with no negative comments)and Florida Department of Environmental Protection(permits). Comments on the proposed project will be accepted until Monday, April 16, 2012. Please send your comments to the City of Sopchoppy, attention: Jackie Lawhon, City Clerk at 105 Municipal Avenue (P.O. Box 1219), Sopchoppy, FL 32358. The City may also be contacted by email at jackie.lawhon@sopchoppy.org, or by phone at 850-962-4611. A more detailed description of the project and flood/wetland maps are available for citizen review at the above address between the hours at 9:00AM and 4:00PM. Colleen Q.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 – Page 9BBy DAVID ROYSETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, March 23 … This was supposed to be a week focused on the drawing of political lines. Instead, Florida was forced this week to think about the definition of other lines … the line between self defense and murder, and the racial lines that evidently still divide who can consider themselves safe on a walk back from the store. As the Legislature recovered from the end of its regular work period and got into its session on redistricting, the prevailing assumption was that lawmakers this week would be neck-deep in the most political of processes, carving up the state into new political boundaries, lining up the states political representation for the decade to come. Legislators were in Tallahassee to do that, but as so often happens in government and politics, the weeks focus was overcome by something in the real world. The agenda for the states lawmakers and its governors gets hijacked all the time … and it usually involves someones death. Lawmakers in the past didnt intend to spend nearly half the session writing laws named after murdered little girls like Carlie Brucia or Jessica Lunsford, or dealing with whether the autopsy photos of Dale Earnhardt should be public, or whether Terri Schiavo should be allowed to die. Sad events occur and take over the best laid plans of politicians. This week it was the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Martin was shot to death while walking through a gated community in Sanford where his fathers girlfriend lives. He was black. He was unarmed, coming back from the store with some Skittles and an iced tea. He was being followed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, 28, who after shooting Martin to death, claimed he was defending himself against the unarmed teen. Zimmerman hasnt been charged. Thats about all thats known by the general public about the actual circumstances surrounding the shooting. The case raised again this week the oft-asked question about whether justice is blind to skin color. Trayvon Martin was a black kid walking in a mixed-race neighborhood where there had been some tension, and where there had been some crime. Zimmerman is a white man of Hispanic heritage. Several black lawmakers this week asked: if each man had the others skin color, would there have been an arrest immediately? But the case also got attention in Tallahassee circles this week because it touched on the nature of the law. The shooting raised a question, in the highest pro“ le case yet, about a relatively new law on Floridas books that opponents had warned would lead to indiscriminate shootings. In 2005, the Legislature voted to change the selfdefense statute to say that when someone feels threatened and isnt breaking the law themselves, they no longer have a duty to retreat from the situation and instead, in the words of the statute, the person has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so ƒ.Ž By weeks end, not only had the central Florida community of Sanford seen the usual responses to questionable acts of violence with racial undertones … an outpouring of support for the victim, political grandstanding, a march, calls for healing, and calls for justice … but there was another reaction that wasnt so expected. Gov. Rick Scott called for a more thorough look at the issue … and the states self-defense law. After being quiet on the subject for a couple weeks, and seemingly caught off guard by the storys eruption into the national consciousness, Scott then went further than many expected. He announced the creation of a task force that will actually hold hearings at which people, presumably, may be allowed to criticize the existing law. For a white Republican to agree with black and Democratic lawmakers that a new look at a law that was championed by the right … and in particular the gun lobby … was a surprise to many who had suggested that some in the white power structureŽ were likely hoping the case would simply go away quickly. As we exercise our right to be free and secure both in public and in the privacy of our own homes, it is important that we have an open and honest discussion on these issues so that we might help avoid such tragedies in the future, Scott said. Backers of the stand your ground law,Ž were largely quiet this week, although the sponsors of the 2005 legislation, Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala and former Sen. Durell Peaden, a Crestview Republican, both said the law shouldnt really be at issue in this case, that it didnt apply. The law was meant to protect people who were defending themselves against truly threatening assailants, said Peaden. And that didnt appear to be the case in the Martin shooting. It sounds like he shot a guy who was innocent,Ž said Peaden. That has nothing to do with this law.Ž Or as Baxley put it: Nothing in that statute authorizes people to pursue and confront people. Thats the problem in this case.Ž The local prosecutor stepped aside for a new one, appointed by the governor, and the local police chief has also stepped away from the case, at least temporarily. The feds and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement are investigating. The Trayvon Martin shooting got attention well beyond Sanford and far beyond the halls of the state Capitol this week … becoming an international phenomenon, one of those occasional events that becomes omnipresent for a time on cable TV and the internet. The case was on the front page of the New York Times. Even President Obama took note of it on Friday, saying: When I think of this boy, I think about my own kids. I can only imagine what his parents are going through. ƒ If I had a son, hed look like Trayvon.Ž REDISTRICTING Redistricting is a hard sell for the general public anyway, and the subject could have been easy to overshadow. For the political people in Tallahassee, they had to keep some focus on the subject this week, with a deadline approaching for getting in place new political maps acceptable to a Supreme Court that rejected the “ rst attempt at drawing state Senate districts. The Senate tried again this week, passing 31-6 a new map that Democrats complained was worse than the “ rst one in its ignoring of the courts objections, namely that it seems to favor incumbents too much, in violation of the constitution. But with the bills passage, it heads now to the House, which had been expected to largely rubber stamp the Senates drawing of its own districts. That isnt a total given … theres some push among Hispanics for changing the Senate-passed map to allow for a fourth Hispanic-friendly seat in Miami-Dade County. That could blow up a lot of other well-laid plans, however, forcing other districts to be redrawn, and angering Senate leadership, so its not fully certain whether the House will simply pass what the Senate did, or will try to alter it. The plan, once passed in some fashion, goes back to the Supreme Court, which if it doesnt approve of the new map, will craft a plan of its own. ELECTION LAW Meanwhile, another effort to control who is in of“ ce and who isnt, came back into view this week. Last year, when lawmakers passed an elections law that changed several processes for voter registration, initiative proposals, and the number of early voting days, they also quietly changed a law that spells out how long you must be registered in a particular political party before you may run for office as a member of that party. It was six months, now it is a year before qualifying, which is 17 months before an election. That caught at least one candidate off guard, and changed her plans. Former state Rep. and Sen. Nancy Argenziano, a Republican throughout her legislative career, left the party a while back, and wanted to run for Congress as a Democrat. Only she didnt join that party in time under the new law. She sued over the law, but lost and was facing the prospect of running as a member of the Independent Party, which she decided would likely mean shed lose. So this week, Argenziano, an outspoken character who is either really well liked or pretty much despised, said shell move from Tallahassee back to her old home of Citrus County, where shell run for a House seat currently held by Rep. Jimmie Smith, R-Inverness. At the very end of the week, on Friday, Scott signed into law a controversial measure allowing students to deliver inspirational messagesŽ at compulsory school functions. The idea was admittedly aimed at increasing public Christian prayer in schools, though technically it would allow students to say pretty much anything at an assembly, because it says adults cant have a say in what message the child wants to deliver. STORY OF THE WEEK: The death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin captures the attention of Florida, and much of the nation. Talk of the way the states self defense law works, and whether blacks are unfairly treated by law enforcement, overtook events at the Capitol this week. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Put the guy in jail. It sounds like he shot a guy who was innocent. That has nothing to do with this law.Ž … Former state Sen. Durell Peaden, R-Crestview, arguing that George Zimmermans shooting of Trayvon Martin was totally unrelated to the stand your ground law.ŽWEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Overtaken by life, and death, in the real world Brain Teaser 1 14 17 20 26 32 39 43 51 55 63 66 69 2 27 52 3 28 53 4 29 47 5 23 44 21 33 40 48 56 64 67 70 6 15 18 34 45 57 7 30 58 8 31 54 9 24 41 49 25 35 50 65 68 71 10 16 19 22 42 46 59 11 36 60 12 37 61 13 38 62ACROSS1.Criesone'seyes out 6.

Ladd Donnie Sparkman seeks another term as property appraiserBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netWakulla County Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman announced this week that he will seek re-election to the of ce. Sparkman, 63, is currently in his fth year as property appraiser after being elected to the post in 2006. During his time in of- ce, Sparkman has seen the countys property values plummet after the bursting of the real estate bubble several years ago. Locally, the boom was fueled by speculation on coastal properties as well as new construction. Property values have dropped about 10 percent a year until this year, when Sparkman anticipates a 3 to 5 percent drop as property values get close to the bottom. Were almost at the bottom, he said, but were not there yet. My fear is, when we do get to the bottom, were just going to lay there and flounder, Sparkman said of local property values. Sparkman indicated scal responsibility is important, and praised other constitutional of cers and county commissioners for working together during last years budget problems. Hopefully, now weve got things turned around, he said. Looking out for the taxpayers of Wakulla County, thats my number one goal, he said. Sparkman said hes proud of the job he and his staff have done. When he rst took over the of ce ve years ago, there were 16 employees including himself. Now there are 13, a decrease due to attrition and leaving positions un lled. You will be greeted by a smile and a friendly, respectful person, he said of people coming into his of ce for service. He made that a priority, and said it was largely the result of time spent in the private sector nothing was more irritating than someone in government having an attitude when he went in an of ce on business. He said he told his employees when he came into the office: If you cant smile and be helpful, I dont need you. Besides customer service, Sparkman said he was pleased with his of ces work cleaning up the tax roll. We have cleaned up a lot of problems and continue to do so, he said. My ambition if to have the most equitable tax roll possible. Sparkman has been married to his wife Rita for 41 years and has three grown sons. He has served 18 years in county government, including a stint in the property appraisers of- ce from 1970 to 1980. He was a registered land surveyor and worked for 23 years with Edwin G. Brown and Associates. He served three years as community development director for Wakulla County. Sparkman served almost two years in the U.S. Army, including a year in Vietnam with the 199th Light Infantry Brigade. All three of his sons are veterans of the Iraq War. I am most thankful to the people of Wakulla County for giving me the opportunity to serve them and promise to continue to work hard for them, Sparkman said. I still have a lot of work to do to make Wakulla Countys tax roll the best and I will always strive to do what is in the best interest of the people of Wakulla County, he said. Im just very thankful for the chance to do this job, he said. Its just an enjoyable job. I love helping the people. I believe, he said, that you help them, theyll help you. Donnie Sparkman Wakullas housing problemThe rst part of a special series by reporter Jennifer Jensen on the lack of affordable housing in the countyEXTRA! Page 1BClarifying plans for airportSpecial to The NewsSherrie Alverson still has her home at Shell Point untouched by raging flames thanks to a quick-thinking 6-year old boy, Aden Zachary Logan. Early Thursday afternoon, Aden was playing in the Alverson backyard when he realized that there was a re racing across the lot next door. He dashed into the downstairs where his mother was, screaming: Mommy, mommy, fire in backyard. His mother, in turn, dashed outside where she found an adult man beating at the ames with a shovel there was no hose available. Learning that he had not called 911, she did so. Then she and Aden hooked together all the Alverson hoses they could nd and began spraying the yard and utility buildings. Aden and his mother, Elizabeth Atkinson, are visiting Alverson. Aden is enrolled at Medart Elementary School. Alverson was not home at the time, being in Tallahassee on business. By the time she was reached by phone, the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce road crew and the Apalachee Bay Volunteer Fire Department had the re under control. Alverson said later that for a few seconds after she heard the news she remembered the anguish brought by the phone call she received on July 9, 1978. That time, she was 400 miles on the road to Memphis, Tenn., where she had traveled to attend a Coast Guard Auxiliary school and the news was tragic. The Alverson home on Live Oak Island was completely destroyed when the house next door caught re. It was then that the Alversons had their home built at Shell Point.Boys quick thinking saves Shell Point home Aden Zachary Logan By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter land was cleared and a sign popped up saying, Future Expansion of Wakulla County Airport, many residents along Surf Road in Ochlockonee Bay became concerned and expressed their disapproval by putting up their own signs that said no to the expansion. According to members of the Wakulla County Airport Advisory Committee, they knew nothing about the sign and land clearing until they were noti ed a couple weeks ago. The county and the committee said they were not responsible for that. Committee Chairman John Russell said the property owner put up the sign and cleared the land and he could see how that would be confusing and concern residents in the area. Committee Member Walt Dickson said there were rumors that condos were coming in. Surf Road resident John Andrew Smith said, There was the implication that the county did it. It was misleading to some degree. Russell said there are no plans to expand the airport, but to bring it up to the Department of Transportations minimum standards and increase safety at the airport. This involves moving the runway down and over to the west. This would extend the length of the runway from 2,800 feet to 2,972 feet, Russell said. The reason for the shift is because the building that houses La Cantina Grille is 50 feet inside the airports safe zone. David Roberts, administrator of aviation operations at DOT, said the building is a hazard and since they dont own the building, it cannot be moved. But you do own the runway, so you can move it, Roberts said. In order to move the runway, the property to the west would need to be purchased, he said. Russell said the area runs right through the corner of the building. The runway would also be paved, currently it is a grass runway. The priority for the airport is to purchase the property necessary and move the runway, Russell said. The county received $75,000 from FDOT, which it was going to use for lighting the runway. However, Roberts said that it would be pointless to spend money on lighting when the runway needs to be moved. The funds could be reallocated from lighting to studies and appraisals of the adjacent property and perhaps acquisition, Russell said. This would require approaching the countys engineers, as well as DOT to see what can be done. We have the resources, Russell said. We need to take advantage of them. All the adjacent property needs to be assessed to nd out how much it is worth, Russell said. Continued on Page 2ACommissioner seeks changes to wetlands rulesBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCurrently, property owners can apply for a variance to the Wetlands Ordinance, which would allow them to build within the 40-foot buffer zone. One commissioner is proposing that variances be allowed within the remaining 35-foot buffer, which is the one closest to the wetlands. Commissioner Randy Merritt, who has expressed his desire to throw out the entire wetlands ordinance, proposed this option at the March 19 Wakulla County Commission meeting. Merritt said there is a mechanism for people to apply for a variance within the 40-foot buffer, but not the 35-foot buffer. To not allow a property owner to build on their own land is a taking of personal property, Merritt said. He also wanted to allow planning staff the ability to approve variances within the 40-foot buffer and not have to get approval from the commission. He said he would like to set up parameters on how the planning director can grant variances. Merritt said if a property owner wants to build a 2,000 square foot home, but that would place it inside the buffer, they should be able to, instead of having to build a smaller home. Merritt said the owner must have a compelling reason for the variance. A lot of people probably dont want to go through the hassle of applying for a variance, he said. But they should be able to at least request it, Merritt said.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1AThe committee agreed they needed to contact District 3 in DOTs aviation of ce to see about re-allocating those funds so they could get started with studies and appraisals. Roberts said the committee and county also need to educate people in the area about the improvements and explain to them that there is no intention of making it an international airport. Its not incompatible with residents that live there, Roberts said. Surf Road residents Smith and L. James Parham, who were in attendance at the meeting, did not agree with that statement and felt the residents would feel an impact. Smith was concerned about the new flight path once the runway is moved. It will now go right over his house, he said. He said he didnt have an issue with trying to make the airport safer, but he did have an issue with expanding the airport and allowing larger planes to access the airport, as well as the wooded barrier being cleared. Russell said they will add a barrier and make it as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Parham said the homes at the end of the runway are not compatible with this plan and will surely lose value. Russell said once the paving is complete, that will help with the noise. It will allow the planes to accelerate much faster so they would y over the homes much higher than they currently do. Tarpine resident Steve Fults said, The realignment of the airport is minimal. Fults was voted in as the airport director by the committee at this meeting. He will serve as a liaison between the county and committee. Russell said the Wakulla County Airport will probably never meet FAA regulations, so no one will ever see a jet or a large aircraft at this airport. Deputy Administrator Tim Barden said FAA pretty much told them that at a recent meeting. Parham said, What Wakulla County has is a runway, adding that it was not an airport. Russell disagreed and said, It meets all the requirements for an airport. He added that the county commission made two unanimous decisions to keep the airport and the county owns it. The only way it can continue to operate is to move the runway, Russell sad. Right now, its dangerous, Russell said. Barden told the residents they had valid concerns and issues. He also informed them that any decision on the airport would need to go before the county commission and no decision had been made regarding the improvements. Currently, the airport covers 13.16 acres and contains a north-south turf runway, with no taxiways or ramp space, as well as no public facilities for parking. The county was given the airport in the 1960s by Fenton Jones under the condition that it remain an airport. The Tarpine Fly-in community was developed in the mid-80s and the residents have been taking care of the maintenance. They established a Wakulla County Airport Association in 2001. The topic of the airport has been one of controversy, with some who think the airport is an asset and others who think the county should turn it over to the residents of Tarpine. Previously there had been some discussion of turning the airport back over to the Tarpine community, however, it was decided the airport remain county owned so it could still be eligible for state and governmental grants. Due to lack of resources and staff to operate the airport, the commission decided to create this committee made up of volunteers to run the airport. The next committee meeting will be April 25 at 2 p.m. in the county commission conference room.Clarifying plans for airportBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe first phase of the Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail is substantially completed. This 2.09-mile phase starts at the Mashes Sands trailhead and ends east of the Tide Creek Bridge. This phase was funded by the Department of Transportation and the estimated cost of this phase is $601,403. A representative with Kimley-Horn and Associates, the countys engineering rm, said they have only heard great things about the quality of the trail and people have already started using it. The 11.63-mile multi-use trail that will connect the beach at Mashes Sands to U.S. Highway 319 in Sopchoppy has been in the works since 2001. A groundbreaking was held in June 24, 2011, however, due to a formal bid challenge by a contractor, the project was halted. The county received a formal bid challenge from Ben Withers Inc. who claimed he submitted all that was asked for, but was told he did not meet the criteria, which he said the county misinterpreted. The county contended that Ben Withers bid was properly rejected as noncompliant and non-responsive for failure to attach a copy of the required DOT Qualifications Letter for the four required pre-qualifications. Withers then protested the bid and the commission decided to throw out all bids and readvertise. The winning bid was Peavy and Son Construction for $450,853. This bid was awarded at the Dec. 5, 2011, meeting. Construction began on Jan. 9. The trail consists of ve phases. The county is hoping the remaining funds from the $1.2 million given for phase one can be shifted over to phase two, as well as any possible remaining funds from phase four. If DOT approves the shift, design will begin in the summer. Phase two includes the Tide Creek Bridge and proceeds along Mashes Sands Road across U.S. Highway 98 and extends 1.9 miles on Surf Road. The estimated cost is $1,2543,430. The third phase picks up where phase two ends on Surf Road and ends at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. The design for this phase is 60 percent complete. The cost of this phase is $581,500. So far, DOT has awarded $117,500 for the design and the DOT Work Program 2013 has earmarked $613,884. Phase four passes within the refuge running along Surf Road for 4.78 miles. Construction is anticipated to begin in June. Phase ve picks up on Surf Road east of the refuge and goes to US Highway 319 in Sopchoppy. A representative with Kimley-Horn and Associates said they met with the CRTPA who located funds for his project. The funds will become available July 1 and designing will begin.First phase of Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail is done JENNIFER JENSENA view of the recently nished portion of the new bike trail.

Sign up to receive email notification of new public notices at FloridaPublicNotices.comContinued from Page 1A Commissioner Mike Stewart said he agreed with part of the proposal, but wanted more time to study it. I agree that there needs to be a mechanism, Stewart said so that residents can appeal to some level. I dont want to take anyones property, he added. If we do that, were overregulating. Commissioner Jerry Moore was in agreement with Merritt and said he would vote with Merritt to get rid of the wetlands ordinance completely. Merritt said he didnt think that would pass. But this is the thing I have the most issue with, Merritt said. Chairman Alan Brock said he was willing to listen to the proposal, but didnt want to do anything to hurt the wetlands. He said he would also like to reach out to experts. Commissioner Lynn Artz was curious as to how often people are in this situation. I dont think this is a frequent problem, Artz said. Stewart said there may only be ve a year, but it was important to the property owner. To make changes to the ordinance, the county would need to amend the comprehensive plan. Merritt agreed to bring something back before the commission at the next meeting. At the Sept. 19, 2011, county commission meeting, Merritt proposed removing the 75-foot wetlands buffer in the countys comprehensive plan entirely, but it failed. Merritt proposed this because he said isolated wetlands were now regulated by the Northwest Florida Water Management District and that state and federal regulations were adequate.Wetlands ordinanceBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe fee schedule for the use of county parks and recreational facilities has been revised. Director of Parks and Recreation, Bryan Roddenberry, said the idea was to make the fees as simple as possible and also provide funds for maintenance and upkeep. Gazebo and pavilion rental fees have decreased. The cost of renting a small gazebo or pavilion was reduced from $35 to $10 or $20. Large pavilions will now cost $50 or $25 depending on the facility. However, a refundable cleanup and damage deposit will now be required in the amount of $50 for all of them. Special events fees have been divided into two parts. There is a $250 rental fee and a refundable cleanup and damages deposit of $250. Roddenberry said if the county sponsors the event, the rental fee would be waived. People can also petition the county commission to have the rental fee waived for their event. There is a fee of $5 per person per 1.5 hours to reserve the tennis courts at Hickory Park. There is also a fee of $15 to rent a 15 feet by 15 feet spot at Hudson Park for a yard sale. People holding a yard sale will be required to pay the fee and obtain a permit. The 50-cent entry fee for Mash Island Park is now $2 per vehicle and $1 per bicycle or pedestrian. There is also a new annual park pass which will allow access to county piers, boat ramps, beaches and parks. The cost is $40. The use of all boat ramps in the county is $5 per launch, which will be set up on a honor system. Camping fees at Newport Park Campground have been increased to $35 for campsites with full hook ups and $20 for primitive campsites. The fee for using the lights at athletic elds is $25. The Panacea Womens Club can be rented for a half day at $100. New fees have also been added for the extension of- ce, equestrian arena and community center. Commissioner Lynn Artz said there is some concern with non-profits groups about being charged to use a room at the community center. Theres lot of anxiety in the community, Artz said. They want to be able to use it. County Administrator David Edwards said they will look at non-pro ts on a case by case basis. The whole idea is to capture costs, he said. Kiosk and fence advertising fees were also included in the schedule. Signs can be placed on county facilities for a fee. Roddenberry said the hope is that some money will be generated to put back into the parks. Many parks dont have basic infrastructure, Roddenberry said, such as signage, kiosks, lists of rules and regulations, etc. Reservations are not required to use many of the county facilities, but people with reservations will have priority access. The fees for recreation activities have not changed. The commission voted unanimously to approve the fee structure.COUNTY COMMISSIONFee schedule for county parks, rec facilities is revised The Shell Point Sailboard Club held its 2012 Wind Ceremony on Saturday, March 24 at Shell Point.

The latest event recognized Kick Butts Day, a national day of awareness. The SWAT youth prepared and presented their own projects of prevention especially related to the latest enticement for sale, candy avored tobacco. SWAT students read the Wakulla resolution to prevent the use of tobacco products to the entire sixth class and then demonstrated the idea that Wakulla students are opposed to tobacco use. This effort under the leadership of a great teacher, Ms. Randle leaves us all grateful for her crusading and caring spirit for our students. Mary Tollefsen Ochlockonee Bay Editor, The News: I want to thank the Wakulla Board of County Commissioners for voicing their opposition to HB 5301, legislation that would increase county contributions for Medicaid. Floridas counties are required to pay a portion of the states share for certain Medicaid services. The Medicaid conforming bill, HB 5301, proposed a statutory change that would require every county to pay inaccurate, old bills and withhold their half-cent sales tax distribution for Medicaid each month moving forward, regardless of the bills accuracy. Local governments would have to apply to the state for a refund if they believe a charge is incorrect. Wakulla is a small, rural county. We do not have a hospital, which means our residents travel for emergency medical care. Our commissioners have assured Gov. Rick Scott that we uphold our responsibility to pay Wakullas share of Medicaid costs and that our county is willing to pay for the documented Medicaid costs for documented residents of Wakulla County. However, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the agency charged with administering the billing system, has simply been unable to ensure that bills sent to counties are correct. Correct billings are a key to getting paid. House Bill 5301 simply does not address the AHCA billing problem. In fact, it makes the situation worse by removing the ability of local of cials to check bills for correctness prior to paying. HB 5301 allows the Department of Revenue to withhold local revenue funds in an amount that AHCA believes that each county owes. This provision eliminates the ability of the local community to determine residency prior to bills being paid. Allowing AHCA to tell DOR to hold local funds they believe counties owe prior to the residency issues being verified does not properly protect the taxpayer. This is a major concern, especially considering the poor record that AHCA has regarding getting the monthly bills correct. I am thankful that the Wakulla County BOCC made their concerns known as advocates for taxpayer protection. Please add your voices to theirs and ask the Governor to veto the bill. If this bill were to become law, Wakulla County will be forced to reduce services and possibly look for additional revenue to offset the cost of having our local taxpayers pay for non-residents and state billing errors. Thank you, Rachel Sutz Pienta, PhD Crawfordville Editor, The News: Last week, I read Cynthia Websters Letter to the Editor titled, Article on Solyndra was questionable. I think most people agree it is disgraceful that our government threw away $535 million dollars. To relate that amount of money to our community, $535 million dollars would fund the current General Revenue for the entire Wakulla County School system for 14 years. It is enough money to cover the total federal funding received in the school systems 2011-12 budget for 108 years. Nothing brings the point home like throwing away enough money to educate a generation of children. Until we demand and force our elected of cials to get our priorities back in line, they will continue to waste money on things that dont bene t taxpayers while they struggle to fund programs that do bene t us. As we know, when politicians nd themselves in this predicament, the easy solution is to raise taxes, further over feeding an already inef cient monster called Government. Ralph Thomas Crawfordville Editor, The News: I have recently been informed of a webpage that allows people to submit letters in support of closing Wakulla Springs to Cave diving. The page has been created in connection with the Friends of Wakulla Springs and is designed to automatically send a letter, on their behalf, to members of the Florida government and the Department of Environmental Protection. The webpage cites divers as destructive to manatees and other life found in caves. A great deal of research has been done in cave systems around the world that dispute these claims. Numerous other dive sites around the world also exist with similar life and conditions. Divers do not have a negative impact in those places and they wouldnt affect manatees at Wakulla. In fact, some of the most successful relationships between people and manatee occur at dive sites in Florida. Manatee Springs, Weeki Wachee and others all have large populations of manatee as well as large populations of divers much larger than the numbers which have been estimated at Wakulla. Even the Friends of Wakulla Springs have posted photos of divers at Wakulla interacting with manatees in their July 2011 newsletter. Anyone who is a diver knows well that the threat to manatee are boats, not divers. In fact, when the Florida DEP held a public conference on opening Wakulla, many divers visited Wakulla for the wild boat tours. They witnessed manatees being run over, at low speed, by the tour boats three times! They argue that the boats have protective covers on the propeller but I somehow doubt the concussion of a boat hull and its protrusions (motor guard, etc.) feels very good to the manatee. This campaign from the Friends is full of misleading statements and intended to capture the hearts of environmentalists who dont know any better. The cave community is largely environmentalists and we dont want to see the destruction of the caves or the life that lives there. Currently one group of divers is allowed unrestricted access to Wakulla. They have reported spending 300,000 hours diving there. To be a member of that diving group requires you to take all of your training from Global Underwater Explorers (GUE). To do GUE training requires you to buy all Halcyon brand equipment. Halcyon equipment is sold primarily through one store, Extreme Exposure in High Springs. Do you know who owns all three of those businesses? The same person who is the leading individual for the WKPP, the only group of divers allowed in Wakulla and also a member of the Friends of Wakulla Springs. One individual bene ts nancially from Wakulla being closed. The public and the wildlife bene ts from it being open. Please, dont visit/use the webpage allowing people to blindly suppor t a cause for which they are largely uninformed. There is far more going on here, scienti cally, nancially and politically than the manatees. No one wants them harmed, least of all divers. Thank you for your time. Travis Kersting Crawfordville Editor, The News: On Sunday, March 26, I was at the checkout in Winn Dixie and I have beeen using a wheelchair to shop for sometime now. This is due to complications from cancer. When I got ready to pay I realized I had left my money and checkcard at home. The young lady behind me paid for my groceries. I am grateful for all the acts of kindness that have been bestowed to me during my illness. I would like to thank the angel with the red hair I believe her name was Becky. God bless you and your family. You are truly an angel. Bobbie Evans Crawfordville Editor, The News: Once again one of our county commissioners, Randy Merritt, is bringing up another proposal that will cost the taxpayers more money. As a handful of special interests pro t, possibly even a few commissioners, the rest of the county will be stuck picking up the tab for cleaning up the mess. Watch carefully and see which other commissioners see this as a good idea and then ask yourself, why? How will they be pro ting? They certainly arent doing it for a better quality of life for Wakulla County residents! This latest proposal is to allow variances to the current Wetlands Ordinance that would allow building right to the waters edge. This gets into that very last 35 feet that is currently untouchable. Such a proposal is designed for one purpose only, to squeeze every single last square foot out of available property bordering wetlands for development with no consideration for our water quality, property values or wildlife. As more of our fragile wetlands are destroyed as a result and other property values are further devalued, who do you think picks up the tab for this? You will, if this latest assault is allowed! As elections are approaching, think long and hard about where candidates stand on issues and ask yourself whose interests do they really represent. As for those commissioners that arent up for election, theyre hoping you will have forgotten in the next two years. Can you imagine a BOCC that really was looking out for its peoples best interests? Watch the next BOCC meeting on TV, Monday, April 2, starting at 5 p.m. to see who they are really representing. David Damon Crawfordville Editor, The News: I have noticed that Crawfordville has a real need for a fenced in dog park. I would like to propose that a portion of the new community center (at the corner of Trice Lane and Shadeville Road) which sits on 22.31 acres could be used. This would be a great feature for the county. Robert Bell robertbell80@hotmail. comREADERS WRITE:Dont allow building to edge of wetlands ank you, commissioners, for voicing your opposition to Medicaid bill Solyndra was waste of $535 million Reader says editor doesnt have a clueEditor, The News: While I did not appreciate your over-the-top editing of the recent Doesnt have a Clue headline, I gured whats good for the goose is good for the gander. Your headline writing represents a view that citizens should be aware of, as you are representing, over and over, a political point of view without directly disclosing it. Shame on you. Alan Brock, Jerry Moore, Randy Merritt, Mike Stewart do not have a clue. To wit: because of no money they have abandoned the young families of Wakulla Gardens to ooding, dirt roads, nasty septic situations. They sat on their hands while Commissioner Lynn Artz, just a few thousand dollars short of having some national planners coming here to do something for those families, trying to get those residents help. But those four commissioners who do not have a clue cry no money. Lets all watch as they refuse to call a halt to building in our historic subdivisions until the infrastructure is in place and the families there have some services. No money for those taxpayers, but money for the small group who are developing and building. Thats another tax we residents will be paying. Along with all the recent taxes and fees passed by this board, we have the hidden tax of unfunded infrastructure improvements. Every place you look, we have problems. Those problems were caused by thoughtless growth policies. They represent hidden taxes people had no vote on. No impact fees from those moving in, but additional taxes from the local taxpayers. I know for a fact our new administrator is aghast that impact fees are lacking, but the commissioners want jobs and business. So much for that where are they? Where are those jobs and businesses they promised? By allowing more and more unwanted homes to be built they are adding to future nancial burdens and unfunded liability for the existing citizens. Because of traf c they want us to pay for 319 with their plan. That plan is designed to benefit developers, not taxpayers. That will slow down commute times even more. Think Capital Circle Northeast in Tallahassee. And that, folks, is a tax. Clueless, absolutely clueless, the board also refuses to take responsibility by setting 2020 in motion with no oversight. Watch as they work out of the Sunshine because the board has given up oversight. Then watch all that money spent so their cronies can get commercial development along 319. I say no. No new half-cent without a 319 moratorium. Vote no on the half-cent 2020 tax, and vote no on the 1-cent tax in 2014. Two of those four commissioners are running again. Tell them to stop with your vote this fall. Lets elect commissioners who have a clue. Lets all Get a Clue! Cordially, Hugh Taylor Crawfordville Editors Note: The full headline of the letter that appeared in the March 8 Wakulla News was Reader says Artz doesnt have a clue. The letter writer stated his opinion that a comment by Artz that she was not going to propose something that makes us look stupid and makes us look like we dont have a clue whats going on and her subsequent vote was evidence she didnt have a clue. The issue being addressed in the letter was a proposal to create a local grouper shing season and had nothing to do with growth. In subsequent editions of The News, other letter writers defended Artzs vote on the shing issue: On March 15, Artz tries to understand all sides of issues, and on March 22, Artz is studious and independent.Webpage opposing cave diving misleads ere are angels among us Consider a dog park at community center Ms. Randle is a crusader for SWAT

Staff ReportsBriefsCoalition to host meeting on underage drinkingJENNIFER JENSENFIRST WEEK OF SPRING: Sunbathers and beachgoers were out at Mashes Sands enjoying the warmth of the sunshine and the breeze this week. Special to The NewsThe Wakulla Coalition for outh will host a town hall meeting on Tuesday, April 3, to increase awareness about negative consequences of underage drinking and discuss proven steps the community can take to prevent underage drinking. The Town Hall Meeting will be held at the War Eagle Caf at the Wakulla High School from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Light appetizers will be served at 5:30 p.m. This will be the second annual Town Hall Meeting hosted by the WCCY. This years meeting titled Getting to Outcomes is supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in collaboration with the federal governments Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking. The meeting will educate attendees and participants, parents, teachers, of cials, youth, and other community leaders and members about the impact that underage drinking has on the community. Presenters from the community will include law enforcement, child advocates, local and government leaders, school leaders, and health experts. Together, participants will explore tangible measures found to be effective in reducing and preventing underage alcohol use in the community. The forum for the meeting will include short presentations followed by direct audience interaction. Underage drinking is a major public health concern throughout the United States and in our community. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, about 10 million 12 to 20-year-olds reported alcohol use during the past month. This number represents more than one out of every four young people in this age group. Evidence-based types of environmental prevention can reduce prevalence of underage drinking in communities. Research also indicates that families exert a great deal of influence on whether a child uses alcohol. What parents may not realize, said Bruce Ashley, president of the coalition, is that children say that their parents disapproval of underage drinking is a key reason they have chosen not to drink. SAMHSA reports that children and teens are less likely to abuse alcohol if parents are involved in their childrens lives, make and enforce clear rules, and are positive role models. The Wakulla County Coalition for Youth encourages all members of the community to attend. GULF COAST Lumber & Supply, Inc.

Special to The NewsFor more than 50 years, pianist and music director Faye Sweeney has been gracing church congregations with her music all over the state of Florida. Its been an amazing journey as God led me to the various churches when my family moved, said Sweeney. For example, in 1975, our family moved to West Florida, and the rst Sunday we attended worship there was the nal Sunday for their current pianist, so I was called to the music ministry there. While an FSU student in 1962, she began her ministry playing for the Open Bible Church in Tallahassee. Participating in Christian music at nine various churches throughout Florida, Sweeney has served as either the congregational pianist, choir accompanist and/or music director. In 1998 she became the substitute pianist at the Wakulla United Methodist Church (WUMC) only to begin to serve as the primary pianist and music director one year later. Since I arrived at WUMC four years ago, said Pastor Janice Henry-Rinehart, Faye Sweeney has been a faithful servant of the Lord. I sensed within her a very deep discernment of faith and a person who is the real thing when it comes to living out her faith. Although Faye will remain as a member of the church we will surely miss her smiling face from the piano. I have enjoyed serving the Lord in the music ministry at WUMC since 1999, said Sweeney. After 50 years of music ministry, I feel it is time for me to retire and allow others the privilege to serve God through music. Since beginning her ministry, Sweeney has given her talents without compensation. Don Grimes, chair of the churchs Staff Pastor Parish Relations Committee (SPPRC) said, We have been blessed to have this talented Christian lady playing the piano joyfully and faithfully and will truly miss her cheerful ministry. Come experience the spirit of Revival!

The students performed three prepared pieces on stage where they were evaluated by three judges on the basis of performance fundamentals, technical preparation, and overall musical effect. They were also evaluated on their ability to sight-read music by another judge. In this process, the students were given music they have never played before and after just a few minutes of the director preparing them for the piece; the band had one chance to play the song through as best they can. I am so happy for my students, says band director, Laura Hudson. They worked so hard to prepare the music for this festival and I could not be prouder of them. Principal Michael Barwick attended the performance and was very impressed with the musical performance of the students. I dont know when I have ever been prouder of a group of students, said Barwick, They are an outstanding group of young musicians and a credit to our school. Wakulla Middle School eighth grade band.SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSpring Festival Saturday Special to The NewsCrawfordville Elementary School is hosting its annual Spring Festival Saturday, March 31 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Instead of a regular Spring Festival, there will be an old fashioned country fair with all the xins. The students are eagerly selling tickets to raise money for playground equipment, technology equipment, books, garden supplies, field trips and much more that our festival proceeds bring to the school. The children who are asking you to purchase tickets might also share that they are trying to get their principal to sit on the roof for 24 hours, get her slimed and earn many schoolwide and individual rewards. It will take $20,000 to get Principal Angie Walker on the roof. That is only $2,000 more than what was raised last year before the day of the festival. Ms. Kelley, the assistant principal, might get kissed by a pig if enough festival tickets are sold before the March 30 deadline, and the guidance counselor, Mr. Vansyckle, might be seen walking around school with bright blue hair. Support Crawfordville and the students by becoming a sponsor, purchasing tickets or stopping by to enjoy a Country Fair atmosphere. There will be a giant slide, face painting, popcorn, snow cones, entertainment, moonwalk, dunk tank, a pie baking contest, games, themed baskets, grilled food and bingo. Be sure to stop by Crawfordville Elementary School on March 31 from 1 to 5 p.m. to enjoy a safe day of family fun. Grause on All-Florida Academic TeamSpecial to The NewsTallahassee Community College student Candice Grause has been recognized by Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the international honor society of two-year colleges. She has been named to PTKs 2012 All-Florida Academic Team. Grause is among the 112 honorees statewide. Grause, of Crawfordville, has been a Presidents List student, carries a 4.0 GPA and was one of the 2012 student honorees for TCCs Womens History Month celebration earlier this month. She also works in the colleges Of ce of Communications and Public Information as the digital media specialist, where her efforts have led TCC to being one of the nations trendsetters in how colleges can effectively use social media. Grause plans to graduate in April and plans to enroll at Florida State in the summer and work towards a bachelors degree in English. Grause will be honored during an awards ceremony on April 5 at Valencia College.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 Page 9Asports news and team viewsSportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach Local standout track athletes Madison Harris and Cora Atkinson traveled to Tallahassee on March 23-24 to join approximately 2,000 athletes from 100 high schools and 19 universities as they competed in the 33rd FSU Relays, hosted by Florida State University and held at the Mike Long Track on the FSU campus. Over the years, this meet has evolved into one of the most competitive and prestigious meets in the southeast. Both athletes performed well, with Harris placing third overall in the Invitational 800-meter run in a new personal record (PR) time of 2:18.03. This time also lowered Harris school record time, set last year at the Regional Meet, by one second. She followed that up with a solid 5:26.32 performance in the Invitational 1600 meter run, despite having to run at 3 p.m. in 85 degree plus weather. Atkinson, running in the 3200 meter Consolation race, also had an outstanding meet. She ran a personal record time of 12:21.15, which also beat her school record time of 12:44.24, that she ran at the Rutherford Relays in Panama City two weeks ago. Two other WHS athletes also competed in the meet: sophomore Marty Wiedeman, facing the same high temperatures, ran a very good 5:45.85 in the Consolation 1600 meter run and senior standout Stanley Linton turned in solid times in the Consolation 3200 (9:57.78) and 1600 (4:42.73) meter runs. Lintons performance in the 3200 meter run was particularly noteworthy, not only because it was a new PR for him, but because he ran almost the whole race with only one shoe on! With less than a half-mile gone in the two mile race, another competitor in the crowded race stepped on Lintons heel and pulled his shoe off. Linton had two choices; he could stop and put the shoe back on and lose considerable time, or he could try and ignore it and keep running. He chose the latter and toughed out the remainder of the race, although the resulting imbalance and rough track surface took its toll on his normally extremely ef cient stride. He then had to turn around two hours later and run the 1600 meters under extremely hot conditions. We only took a few athletes to this meet because of the quali cation standards and, in the end, all of them performed admirably, noted Coach Paul Hoover. Madis performance in the 800 was outstanding and the guts and determination Stanley showed in the 3200 was really something else, Hoover said. To not only nish the race with just one shoe, but to also run a PR is pretty amazing. I told him that because of his run, we were going to have to establish a new school record category the one-shoed 3200 meters! FWC News The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host its second annual Run Wild 6-K race Saturday, April 7 at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park in Tallahassee. Registration begins at 7 a.m., and the race starts at 8 a.m. We encourage anyone to come out to support Floridas wildlife, said Capt. Rett Boyd, event organizer and statewide coordinator of the FWCs Investigations Section. You dont have to be a runner to participate. Well have a live bald eagle, the FWCs manatee mascot and informational booths as well. The event will raise money for the Wildlife Alert Reward Program, a non-pro t program offering rewards in exchange for information leading to the arrest of those who violate the states sh and wildlife laws and boaters operating vessels under the in uence of drugs or alcohol. The program was created in 1979 to enlist the publics help in reporting violations and getting involved in the conservation and protection of Floridas valuable natural resources. The race will be at Millers Landing Road, Gate B. Participants can register online or at Capital City Runners at 1866 Thomasville Road. Registration is $18 the day of the race. By ALAN ROSSTony Stewart continues to ride a hot hand, winning the rain-shortened Auto Club 400 Sunday at Fontana, California, the Sprint Cup defending champions second win in ve races in 2012. With rain in the forecast, Kyle Busch led the pack out onto Auto Club Speedways two-mile Dshaped oval, leading the race for the rst 85 laps through two cycles of green- ag pit stops. Thats where Busch surrendered the lead to Stewart, who took it the rest of the way to Lap 123 when the rst and nal caution came out for rain. Six laps later the race was stopped for good. Denny Hamlin had caught Stewart at Lap 116 but was unable to make a pass for the lead. Stewart then faked off Hamlin, heading for pit row on the caution only to sharply veer back onto the track at the last second. Hamlin continued on into the pits, a move that ultimately cost him second place (he nished 11th). The luckiest driver in the bunch was Jimmie Johnson. The Lowes 48 car nished 10th but was smoking heavily as the race was red- agged. Had the rain subsided, Johnson likely would have wound up near the bottom of the pack due to lengthy repairs. Early leader Busch took second, with Dale Earnhardt Jr., third. The Cup boys head back across the continent to Martinsville this Sunday. ROADSIDE RANT: NASCARs scheduling has always left a few of us scratching our heads. Last week, the Cup caravan was in Bristol, Tenn.; next week Martinsville, Va. Thrust in between was a 6,000-mile round trip for a mere 129 laps of racing at Fontana. What could have been a mileage-saving cost cutter of major proportions for the sport instead turned into a spending spree. Sticking in a cross-country road trip between races at two Eastern venues is economically short sighted. At a time when gas prices are through the roof, NASCAR wont earn any smart points. Why didnt they tack the Fontana race onto the Phoenix-Las Vegas swing a couple of weeks back? MALAYSIA GRAND PRIX: Rain created havoc in Kuala Lampur Sunday, scuttling the efforts of McLarens front row-starting Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button and vaulting Fernando Alonso into a surprising win for previously underperforming Ferrari. The race, which began on inters, the intermediate rain tire, was red- agged for over an hour by a monsoon. By the time of the cessation, Alonso had jumped by both McLarens, which had been sabotaged by their own crews faulty pit stops. Defending champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull Racing and Button, last weeks winner in Australia, both finished outside the points. Surprising second-year driver Sergio Perez, in a Sauber, chased Alonso, the new Formula One standings leader, to the finish line, followed by Hamilton, who logged his second straight third-place nish. Perez is the rst Mexican-born driver to stand on an F1 podium since Pedro Rodriguez took second in the 1971 Dutch Grand Prix. INDYCAR ST. PETERSBURG: Helio Castroneves won his rst IndyCar race in two years and became the rst driver in the series to win three Grands Prix of St. Petersburg. Castroneves, powering a Penske Chevrolet, overtook race leader Scott Dixon following his nal pit stop with an outside pass. The upbeat Brazilian had smooth sailing after that. While Roger Penske may not be partnering with Chevrolet in NASCAR until 2013, the legendary Captain wasted no time in initiating his new association with the American car manufacturer in IndyCar, taking it to Victory Lane in his rst start with Chevy. Six of the first eight nishers drove Chevies. Last seasons champion, Dario Franchitti, nished a disappointing 13th. The series heads to Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama this Sunday.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsI was out in the refuge a few days ago, and was surprised to see both a Common Loon and a Horned Grebe in Stony Bayou Pool No. 1. Why? Because this pool has had its water control structures opened which allowed a high tide to completely ll this pool with waters from the Gulf, then closed to keep these waters in. So, the water in the pool I guess is as salty as the Gulf. Plus we had very little rain this last few weeks, and so there is less fresh water to dilute the pool. So for the rst time since I moved to this area in 1986 these two aquatic birds, that are normally seen out by the lighthouse along our coast in the winter, were at the beginning of the watery areas of the Lighthouse Drive, not out in the bay or Gulf waters. At least thats my reasoning. Both were in their drab winter plumage too. Nature is always throwing a curve ball at us taking us off guard with a surprise. For instance, on Sunday, Eve, Patti and I were watching on the Discovery Channel a new documentary on the animals of the North and South Poles, (which also will air next Sunday at 8 p.m.). It was done beautifully, with exceptional photography. One segment was on a moth caterpillar called the Woolly Bear (not the Woolly Bear caterpillar we see in the eastern U.S. brown with a black band across the middle, and later turns into the Isabella moth). A few butter y and moth caterpillars overwinter, that is they do not go into the cocoon (moth) or chrysalis (butter y) in the fall, but stay a caterpillar right through the winter, but rarely as much as two winters. But these Arctic Woolly Bears apparently have built-in antifreeze in their blood system which keeps the ice crystals from bursting their minute veins, overwinter 14 times before making a cocoon. Patti, who is very informed about these creatures, about fell out of her chair when hearing this. Yes, nature has a lot of hidden secrets. Another example: On our recent trip in March to two nature-type lodges in Belize, we were in for another surprise. I was reminded of this shocker when I stepped out onto our back porch last week just after dark. Little micro-moths and other ying insects were practically attaching to our windows and screens, and as I walk in my yard though the daylight hours Im constantly seeing our threeto six-inch Green Anole lizards. They are abundant because we have an abundance of insects. But in Belize there appeared to be few insects, even in the two huge nature jungle preserves we were in, except for hearing a few Gecko lizards which made a bird-like chirping sound at night around and in the buildings, we saw no other insect eating lizards, and the insects were all but missing. You could leave your door wide open at night and not a bug or moth ew in! February and sometimes into March in central Belize can be wet when cold fronts reach that far south into Central America. And May can be hot, as Patti has found out on previous trips, but April seems to be the perfect time to visit there, for the temperature is perfect, and there are no bugs, More on Belize in my next article.Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHNature holds a lot of surprisesScott Rojas took his 6-year-old daughter Isabelle shing from his uncles dock at Shell Point. Using her own Zebco rod and reel with live shrimp for bait, Isabelle caught two trout and a lady sh. Rojas is a school resource of cer at Wakulla High School and his favorite past-times are being with his daughter and shing. A perfect outingSPECIAL TO THE NEWSFWC News Fishermen targeting gag grouper in state waters off the coast of Wakulla, Franklin, Jefferson and Taylor counties will be able to take some of their catch home for dinner starting April 1. This regional season will end June 30 and is for 2012 only. The season also includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters (from shore to nine miles out) off these four counties may not be taken ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding the Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. The FWC found that overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties, because it is the least densely populated region of Floridas Gulf Coast. Providing this spring season will balance the economic and social needs of this region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In Gulf of Mexico federal waters (beyond nine miles) and in the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Oct. 31. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not open during the Julythrough-October season. Gag grouper may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties during the July-through-October season, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits did not change and remain at 22 inches and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

Some say it is all about who you know. This week I am exceptionally grateful for Duane Treadon who put together the column. Not only because I have been out of town, but because he was instrumental in organizing the effort to have the name of our flotilla more accurately represent the area and boating population we serve. Whats in a name? To the members of Flotilla 12 St. Marks, a lot. With the retirement of Flotilla 15 St. George Island in 2008 and Flotilla 13 Shell Point earlier this year the St. Marks Flotilla has seen its Area of Responsibility (AOR) triple in size. When founded in 1988 the St. Marks Flotillas AOR covered the coastal waters from just southeast of the Econfina River to about halfway between Shell Point and St. Marks and included the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers. Today the Flotillas AOR continues west to Apalachicola. When looking at nautical charts of the new AOR, members of the Flotilla realized they were not just St. Marks anymore. During recent Flotilla meetings members brought up concerns that continued use of the St. Marks name may confuse the boating public as to the area served by the Flotilla. With an active detachment based in Carrabelle there was legitimate concern that public affairs and education events advertised under the St. Marks name might have some thinking they needed to travel to St. Marks for the program. The Flotillas expanding web presence was also something to consider where a geographically specific name didnt really tell the Flotillas whole story. After careful consideration, review, and discussion the Flotilla narrowed its choices down to a few and in the end decided that Apalachee Bay best represented the entirety of its newly expanded AOR. With the decision made, a formal request for a Flotilla name change from St. Marks to Apalachee Bay was submitted to the Auxiliary Directors of ce in New Orleans where it received a favorable review and authorization. The newly named Flotilla 12 Apalachee Bay continues the Auxiliary tradition of serving the boating public that was rst started in our area by Flotilla 13 Shell Point in 1966. If interested in contributing to this tradition and joining the Apalachee Bay Flotilla contact Norma Hill by email at fso-hr@uscgaux. net. As Sherrie always says, safe boating is no accident.

Hose Diving Long before there was Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatuses (SCUBA), there was hose or Surface Supplied (SS) diving. Breathing air was pumped down to a person at depth through a rubber pipe. In the beginning, the pump at the surface was as primitive as the helmet at depth. Manually driven bellows similar to those used to stoke a smiths re, were constructed to manage the greater pressure required of the depth of the diver. One or two people would rock a lever back and forth, or up and down, driving a single piston in and out of a tube with valves at the end. Attached to the other end of the tube, a diver would wear an open bell helmet a top his head. The surface supplied hose delivered air that kept the water level in the helmet below the chin of the occupant. Sponge divers off Tarpon Springs Florida used just such a diving device a century ago. And Europeans used surface supplied breathing gas to salvage sunken ships centuries before that. Today, Surface Supplied Diving is even more popular amongst the recreational diving community. They have gas and electric driven pumps to replace the manual systems, but otherwise the pumps are rather similar. The delivery hose looks like a yellow garden hose similar to the one with which you water the plants. At the other end, the diver or divers breathe from regulators similar to the second stages of their scuba brethren. Most gasoline-powered pumps run for three hours before refueling; permitting a team of two a very long dive depending upon how deep they dive. The yellow 100-foot long delivery hose oats, so divers stay within a 100-foot radius of the boats safety dive ag as speci ed by Florida Law. Other boats must stay 100 feet away from the red and white Diver Down ag. I installed a surface supplied compressor on the bow of my boat. Others set it in a oat that follows the divers around on the reef. Imagine no heavy cylinder on your back, easy water entry and exits, and three hour dives. These rigs are ideal for shallow water diving, lobster shing in the Keys, scallop shing off St. Marks, and keeping the children corralled near the boat. I moved my children from snorkel diving to scuba through an intermediate surface supplied step. Of course I was in the water with them, and insisted upon training to national standards, resulting in hours of thrilling time underwater. Last week the clam aqua-culturists visited our shop in search of surface supplied technology. They are placing their baby clams this month in waters less than 10 feet deep. They spend a lot of time in shallow water. I once carried the same 50 pound surface supplied compressor on my back ve miles through the jungles of Palau (an island in the Paci c) to dive shallow lakes too distant to supply with scuba cylinders. After the rst day, all I carried in was a gallon of gasoline each day. The clam farmers love this ve century old diving concept as much as the rest of us. IF WE DONT HAVE IT WE CAN GET IT!

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The NewsA group of six FrenchCanadians visiting Florida for two weeks found unexpected enjoyment when an act of kindness by a Wakulla County resident turned a disaster into a pleasant experience this week. One of the Canadians lost a large sum of money and other possessions when he left his fanny pack at the Kangaroo convenience store in Medart after purchasing gas. Andre Lamontague of Quebec was cold after fueling up and decided to put on his chaps. He set aside his fanny pack and did not realize it was missing until the group of six Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders got three-quarters of the way to Panama City. Crawfordville resident Johnny B. Ross Jr. found the wallet on Tuesday, March 20, and turned it in to Deputy Ward Kromer. Sheriff Donnie Crum met the grateful Canadians on Thursday, March 22 when they came back through Wakulla County to pick up Lamontagues fanny pack. Lamontague said he received a telephone call from the WCSO dispatch alerting him that the fanny pack had been turned in. I know Im lucky, said Lamontague in his heavy Quebecois accent. The money and the credit cards were all there. He added that the two week vacation has been made even more enjoyable by the honesty displayed by local residents. It is fantastic, added Andres friend, Raymond Morin. That was unreal. Everything was there. The motorcycle crew was planning to leave Wakulla County to visit the horse properties in Ocala before heading on toward Morins Florida home in Sarasota. I was pleased to be able to meet and talk to them, said Sheriff Donnie Crum. I am glad that they received such a good view of Wakulla County and I am proud of Johnny B. for what he did. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAndre Lamontague of Quebec holds the recovered fanny pack that was turned in by a citizen. Raymond Morin is on the far right with Wakulla Sheriff Donnie Crum and the other members of the traveling party.Tourists wallet returned after its found at storeBy SUSAN BLAKENational Forests in Florida Were not out of the woods yet with this wet weather, said Forest Supervisor Susan JeheberMatthews of the National Forests in Florida. The signi cantly low rainfall has not impacted drought conditions, she said. This has reduced our ability to execute prescribed burns in our forests. To add to the situation, state and federal re experts believe springtime may introduce especially dry conditions similar to the wild re season of 1998, when res burned almost a half-million acres across the state. That year Flagler and Volusia County residents were forced to evacuate and over 300 homes and 34 businesses were destroyed or damaged. Fire suppression efforts cost $130 million with the loss of $300 million in timber throughout the state. According to Meteorologist Sean Luchs of the Florida Forest Service, lower than normal moisture levels are caused by the temperature oscillation in the tropical Paci c near the Equator known as La Nina, a weather trend that results in dry conditions with little rain. We take a look at sea surface temperatures in a certain area of the Paci c Ocean and compare it to its normal value, said Luchs. Cooler than normal we call it La Nina; warmer than normal we call it El Nino. Because the Pacific Ocean covers a big chunk of the earths surface, atmospheric changes such as La Nina and El Nino can in uence weather across the globe. The La Nina and El Nino cycle generally tends to run on a one and half to three-year oscillation, but that doesnt always happen, said Luchs. La Nina conditions in Florida started to emerge in the second half of 2010. According to Luchs, although there has already been 18 months of dry weather, these conditions are predicted to continue. Prescribed burning is a practice that not only reduces the amount of fuels that can lead to catastrophic wild res, but also promotes healthy forests. In addition, prescribed burns move slowly and pose little or no threat to the safety of wildlife. On the Apalachicola National Forest, FMO Steve Parrish prepares for an active wild re season as a result of extremely low levels of rainfall this year. Because of the weather conditions we havent been able to burn as much as we have in the past, said Parrish. Were only at approximately 12,000 acres and should be upwards of 40,000. State and federal agencies have been especially careful to plan prescribed burns away from highways due to increased fog conditions, which can carry smoke and impact visibility. Most of the res we are dealing with right now are human-caused, said Parrish. We need hikers and campers to do their part and make sure their res are extinguished before leaving campsites or recreation areas.Demanding prescribed re season for Apalachicola National Forest A prescribed burn near the Clear Lake Wilderness Study Area on March 26.

People line up for the free lunch that was offered at Make A Difference Day. Making new friends, above, and re ghters had a booth seeking to attract new volunteers. Born in Arran March 4, 1932 to Wilmer and Oma Lee Haddock Dykes. Graduated from Sopchoppy High School in 1949 with many lifetime friends and made scores of friends through the years. Jimmie was a y sherman extraordinaire, spending many hours with friends swapping sh tales and comparing sh. Lambert Goodson was a very special friend and the best of bass shermen. Hardy Revell knew the waterways and creeks and all around super friend as was Jerry Reeves, a long time friend. A gift to Jimmie at age 18, set him up to be one of the best y shermen in our area. Someday I will write about shing with him. Jimmie married October 11, 1952, and was drafted one week later. Three weeks later he caught a bus to Ft. Jackson, S.C. After basic training he was on a train to Camp Roberts, Calif., and shipped out to the far east command to serve in Korea. He helped capture Heartbreak Ridge and Old Baldy. He returned to Wakulla County turning down schooling and a promotion. He was a sergeant. His answer to the ofcers, Sir, you dont know about Wakulla County and what is waiting on me, but let me assure you I have an airplane waiting to take me to Tallahassee, Fla. He arrived at 9:30 p.m. that night to a wife, his mother and brothers and sister. The following hunting season he hunted with my stepfather Bubba Adams and Mr. Commodor Taff. But shing was always on his mind. Hard work was what Jimmie knew best and never backed down from it, always trying to better our lives. In 1958 he built our house out of 30,000 bricks from an old jail here in Crawfordville. His rst child was born March 9, 1958, and we moved in December 1958. This was accomplished with the help of Hargrove Moore, Douglas Roger, Cecil Forbes, Dick Snyder, Bobby Posey, and other very special Wakulla County people. So many people impacted his life and he loved and respected all of them. He leaves his son to catch his share of the sh and I know he will do just that. Jimmie built the J. B. Dykes Center at 2698 Crawfordville Road in the year 1968. Some of those bricks came from old re places in Medart and one from his grandmother, Lanie Haddocks house. Thanks for taking a moment to remember a husband, father, grandfather, veteran, and native of Wakulla County. As he told the ofcers trying to hold him in the Army, Come go with me, I am on my way to Gods country. He is glad you found us and I am sure he is glad you are here. Jimmie would also want me to tell the young men to man up and be a good father. It holds a high rank. He died March 18, 2008.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netFor most people, they know where they will lay their head at night, where their next meal is coming from, how they will pay their bills. But for 14.1 percent of Wakulla County residents who are living in poverty, one or all of these is a struggle. The federal poverty guidelines are established by the Department of Health and Human Services. A twoperson household making $14,710 would be considered to be living in poverty, while the guideline for a family of four is $22,350. For each additional person in a family, $3,820 is added. The lack of shelter, food, healthcare and transportation are major issues facing those in need. While there are programs and services available to assist them in Wakulla County, the need far outweighs the amount they are able to provide. Theres a lot going on in Leon County, but theres not a lot going on here, says Jack Keillor, emergency assistance case manager for Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida. Catholic Charities offers emergency rental and utility assistance, food and case management to clients within its seven county region, which includes Wakulla County. There is a lack of adequate, affordable housing in the county, as well as a lack of places that offer rental or home ownership assistance to low-income residents. In the world, 95 million people are facing housing problems, according to Habitat for Humanity International. These problems include the rent or mortgage payment being too high, overcrowding, poor quality shelter or homelessness. Wakulla County is not spared from this problem. In this economy, many people are struggling. People who are homeless or who are unable to nd decent housing could be there for a number or reasons: the inability to nd a steady job, decline in health, loss of a job, being on a xed income, taking a lesser paying job or parttime job, etc. Those who are struggling include men, women, children and families. According to the 2010 Census, those who are under the age of 18 and living in poverty is 20 percent. The Wakulla County School District has a record of 62 students in the county who lack a xed, adequate, regular night-time residence and have been certi ed as homeless, according to Tanya English, student services director. Most of these students are sharing housing due to economic conditions, such as two families sharing a three-bedroom home, she says. Some families are also living in travel trailers and hotels. Theres a lack of affordable housing, Keillor says. Keillor says those who are about to be evicted and are in danger of becoming homeless can contact Catholic Charities for help. Theres a need, Keillor says. The calls are coming in. Keillor has a certain amount of money he can spend in the county each month, but says he tries to help anyone who needs it. When a client is given rental assistance, Keillor says he goes out and inspect the rental property to ensure it exists and that it is safe.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 Page 3BContinued from Page 1B SUBSTANDARD HOUSING A lot of houses Ive seen arent adequate, Keillor says. Sometimes windows are broken, plumbing doesnt work and there is lead-based paint, he adds. Peggy Mackin, president of Habitat for Humanity of Wakulla County, says she too has seen the horri c conditions some people are living in. Habitat offers home ownership opportunities to families who are unable to obtain conventional nancing and are typically 30 to 50 percent of the areas median income, which is set at $66,000 for Wakulla County. In one instance, she says a family of ve was living in a single wide mobile home with two bedrooms. One person couldnt walk through the kitchen if another person was in there, Mackin says. Its so sad. And some of these people are paying $600 to $700 a month to a landlord that refuses to lower the rent, she says. And in my estimation, they should be condemned, Mackin says of some of the homes. Another young couple was living between in-laws, she says. Wakulla County Code Enforcement Of cer Jaime Baze also knows rst hand about the substandard housing in the area. Baze says there are several landlords in the county who own numerous rental properties that do not meet minimum housing standards. Some landlords take the rent check and thats it, making no repairs to the property, she says. They have the funds and the means to x it, Baze says. But many dont. Bazes of ce is complaintdriven and 90 percent of the complaints received involve rental properties, especially mobile homes. Many renters are just grateful to have a place to stay, but many of the conditions are deplorable, she says. Its sad to see some of those homes out there they lease out, Baze said. Some landlords charge a small amount of rent each month or charge a weekly rate and do not x or repair anything, Baze says. It doesnt give them a right to let these conditions go on, she says. In February 2011, the county adopted a property maintenance code which dealt with substandard housing and established minimum housing standards. It also outlined the responsibility of the owner to maintain the property and structures, regulations for exterior and interior structures, requirement for plumbing xture and facility, requirements for heating, mechanical and electrical and pest elimination. Baze says before this ordinance, her office did not have a way to address these situations or take action. The ordinance protects occupants, she adds. The ordinance was a blessing for the occupants, Baze says of some of the homes in the county. After a complaint is received, Baze will send out a pre-inspection notice to the property owner giving them 10 days to x the problem. If it is not xed, they come out and inspect the property. A corrective action plan is given to the owner and they have 30 days to comply. If they do not comply, they can appear before the Code Enforcement Board who can impose nes or hire a private vendor to make the repairs and place a lien on the property. One of the big issues she sees is the structural soundness of oors. They arent sturdy and are falling through. She also sees roof leaks, mold, faulty plumbing, insulation coming out the bottom of the home, pest infestation, etc. If the structure is deemed unsafe, the tenant would have to vacate the property until it is repaired, Baze says. This causes some people to back off because they do not have anywhere else to go. Some people are also afraid of retaliation from the landlord and being evicted, she adds. Her job is to protect property values, maintain a livable housing stock, protect property rights of citizens and keep the community safe. Were protecting the life and the property, Baze says. Baze says she has seen people living in a home with the roof caved-in and tarps placed to cover the hole. She has also seen people living in campers, which isnt allowed. One family was living in a tent next to their home because it was in foreclosure and they couldnt afford to pay their power bill. Baze says it is a sad situation and her of ce is there to help anyone with property issues. For rentals, she suggests having tenant contact her of ce to perform an inspection prior to signing a lease. Homes may sit vacant or abandoned for six months and then they are rented out, she says. Theres no telling the condition they are in, Baze says. HOUSING ASSISTANCE Rental and housing assistance can be found through the countys housing department, as well as Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, local churches and Promise Land Ministries. Wakulla County receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the Housing Choice Voucher Program, or Section 8, which helps pay for a portion of the rent for low-income families. This program is administered by Meridian Community Services Group. Section 8 assists very low-income families, the elderly and disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord with federal funding and the family pays the difference. The familys income may not exceed 50 percent of the median income for the county which is $66,000, according to HUD. By law, 75 percent of vouchers must be given to applicants whose income does not exceed 30 percent of the median income. Housing voucher families are required to pay 30 percent of its monthly adjusted gross income for rent and utilities. According to HUD, the demand for assistance often exceeds the resources available so there is usually a waiting list. Sonora Walker, program coordinator for Section 8, could not be reached to provide further information. According to HUD, the fair market rent for Wakulla County for a two-bedroom home is $690. The hourly wage necessary to afford a two-bedroom home is $13.27, with an income of $27,600. There is not a single county in the U.S. where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a onebedroom apartment at what HUD determines to be fair market rent, according to Habitat for Humanity. The fair market rent for a onebedroom home in Wakulla County is $620. Meridian also administers the State Housing Initiative Partnership program for the county which funds emergency repairs, new construction, rehabilitation, down payment and closing cost assistance, impact fees, construction and gap nancing, mortgage buy-downs, acquisition of property, matching dollars for federal housing grants and programs and homeownership counseling. Wakulla County received an allocation of $350,000 during the 201112 scal year for the SHIP program. Catholic Charities also tries to help low-income families.

But not enough to meet the needs. With the decline in the economy, the numbers of those in needs has grown and the amount of help and donations has decreased. Everything is still tight, Keillor says. Many of his clients are new and have never reached out for help before, he says. These are people in the middle class who never thought this would happen to them. he says. He believes the middle class has shrunk, which means those who used to support non-profits like Catholic Charities are no longer able to. Along with providing monetary assistance and food, Catholic Charities also tries to educate its clients on nances, budgeting, tenant laws, basic skills, taxes, etc. Instead of a handout, its a hand up, Keillor says. The idea is to create sustainability, he says. Another program that helps those lower income families with housing assistance is Habitat for Humanity. Since its inception in Wakulla County in 1998, they have built nine homes and are looking for their 10th family. Mackin says Habitat believes every person deserves a decent home to live in. Homeowners must go through a qualifying period and cannot have bad credit, Mackin says. They must show a need for a home, an effort to work on getting one and the ability to pay the mortgage. A $250 down payment is required, as well as sweat equity hours. The homeowner is required to work on the next house. Mackin says the homeowner enters into a 20-year mortgage with Habitat, who does not charge interest. Mortgage payments are typically $300 to $550 a month for a one to four bedroom home. A three-bedroom home cannot be built larger than 1,050 square feet, according to Habitat for Humanity International. Mackin says most of the land for the homes is donated and the homes are located in different areas of the county, including Panacea, off Rehwinkle Road, Wakulla Gardens and Magnolia Ridge. We dont want to have a Habitat Village, Mackin says. The people are put out into the community so they become a part of it, she says. They are able to keep the price down because of free labor, a break on supplies, donations, money from the Re-store and fundraisers. Many of the people who qualify are under the poverty level, Mackin says. Its nice to see them get a house, Mackin says. There is a need for decent housing in this county, Mackin says. The low income in Wakulla County are a forgotten people, she says. This gives people the opportunity to become homeowners who otherwise may have never had the chance. Owning a home is what makes them proud, Mackin says. Those who receive a home are also required to take classes at the Wakulla County Extension Of ce on house upkeep, yard, nance, etc. They also receive information about crime prevention and smoke detectors from the sheriffs of ce. We encourage people to better themselves, Mackin says. Habitat will hold an application meeting on May 15 for the 10th house. They are also in need of support and donations to continue their work and help raise money for the 11th house. OTHER RESOURCES Other programs available are Promise Land Ministries, which provides shelter to men who are homeless, suffered a personal tragedy or need to get away from inappropriate environments. They are also a rehabilitation facility that operates a 32-week program that takes each client through a 12step process.

The Hardship Assistance Program was created to assist residential property owners who meet the eligibility criteria, with the nancial burden imposed by the Solid Waste and Fire Services Assessment. In September 2011, the Board implemented a Solid Waste Assessment in the amount of $196 and approved the Fire Protection Assessment in the amount of $75 for residential, 6-cents per square foot for nonresidential and 17-cents per acre for agricultural/vacant property. The Board recently amended the income criteria which is determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The following income must be demonstrated: Extremely Low (30 percent) Income Limits: 1 Person: $13,200 2 Person: $15,050 3 Person: $16,950 4 Person: $18,800 5 Person: $20,350 In order to apply for hardship assistance, citizens must complete the application and le with the county administrators office for consideration prior to June 1. In addition, the applicant must provide substantive documentation of gross income of all occupants 18 years of age and older. To learn more about the eligibility criteria for the Hardship Assistance Application and to obtain the Hardship Application, please visit the County website (www.mywakulla. com) or contact the county administration office at 926-0919.County accepting applications for hardship assistanceBy TAWRA KELLAMLivingOnADime.com Frugal living is all about making the most with what you already have. Here are 11 tips from LivingOnADime.com to help you get started: 1. Barter for services when possible. For example, we exchanged lawn mower repair from our neighbor for a table (garage sale nd) that he was looking for. 2. Learn to x things for yourself. These days, with the internet making information so easily available, you can x most things yourself. We do 95 percent of the repairs around our house and we arent that handy. We just keep looking for the information about how to do it and keep working until we get it xed. 3. Stop eating out. I know you hear it all the time but STOP! The average family spends $300-$500 a month just eating out! Eating out truly is one of the biggest causes of debt. I am always amazed how someone can be totally broke and cant pay their bills but are still able to go to the drive-thru of their favorite restaurant. 4. Study nutrition information and nd out what you need to eat to have a healthy and balanced diet. Then stop eating the junk and eat healthy inexpensive meals at home. We have a lot of menu ideas here at LivingOnADime.com that can help you get started. 5. Live without it. If something breaks and you dont have the money to x or if you are out of something and you dont have the money to buy more, gure out a way to live without it. If the lawn mower breaks, can you borrow a friends lawn mower? If your washer breaks, go to the laundromat. If you break your tea kettle, use a saucepan to heat water. In most instances, you can nd a way to make do or do without something until you have the cash saved up. 6. Do things for free. Go to the library, have a picnic or read a book. Kids are just as happy playing with mom and dad in the backyard as they are going to the zoo. If you cant pay cash for the fun stuff you can always have fun at home. 7. Buy items used. We buy 90 percent of the items for ourselves used. Going to yard sales and thrift stores does not take any longer than going to a retail store but you can save 90 percent off the retail price! 8. Just say no...to your kids. Let kids buy their own toys and extras! Our kids pay for all their own soda, candy, treats like nail polish, their own computers and extras. You are not the Bank of Mom so just say no! 9. Find a cheaper way to do things. Go to a beauty school to get your hair colored (or dont have your hair colored at all it isnt something you need to survive). Go to a mechanic school to get your car xed. Hire a kid instead of a lawn service to mow your yard (only if you cant do it yourself for medical reasons) Paint your own house instead of hiring someone, cut the cable and the cell phone (gasp!), and have birthday parties at your house. There is almost always a cheaper way to do things so try to nd the cheapest way and save some money! 10. Cut kids activities. Most kids are in way too many activities and theyre often expensive. I know families who pay $175 a month for gymnastics lessons but cant pay the mortgage. There is a problem with this kind of thinking. Kids wont die if you dont give them all the lessons and activities you cant afford. 11. Get it for free. When the landscapers were laying sod in our new neighborhood, I asked for the scraps and we were almost able to put in our entire backyard for free. When they were building houses, I asked for the 2x4s that were going into the dumpster and got enough wood for our shed. When they were pouring concrete patios, I asked for the leftover concrete and they just poured our entire cement pad for our shed for free! If friends have kids older than your kids, ask if you can have their hand me downs when they are done. Get as much as you can for free and you can save thousands of dollars.11 tips for frugal living Please Recycle PANACEA HATSAFACTHATSEARLE KIRKWOOD850-524-9103UNDERTHEOAK ON US 98 PANACEA Of WakullaHeating & AirServing Wakulla & Franklin Counties850-926-5592Sales & Service All Makes & Models3232 Crawfordville Hwy.

Anhingas live near forest lakes and waterways, and they dive underwater to capture fish. The strange thing about these birds is that they dont have a water-repellent coating on their feathers like other birds. After diving for their meals, they have to find a safe place to perch where they can stretch their wings out to dry before flying. Answers: Puzzles are provided by Kidsville Publishing. On April 12, 1961, a young Russian man named Yuri Gagarin flew into history. He was the first human being ever to be sent up into space. He rode in a spacecraft called the Vostok The Vostok weighed five tons and could only carry one person. It was later redesigned to be able to carry three people. What do you call a Russian astronaut? Theyre called cosmonauts. So the first person in space wasnt an astronaut at allhe was a cosmonaut! The first American in space was Alan Shepard. On May 5, 1961, he rode on a ship called the Freedom 7 and reached an altitude of 116 miles. Today, people go into space for many reasons. They may use the space shuttle to launch satellites into space, or they may do experiments while in orbit. Americans and Russians now work together to learn more about space. C APRIL

March 29, 2012 5167-0329 TWN Sopchoppy NFEAPC 5163-0329 NOTICE FOR EARLY PUBLIC REVIEW OF A PROPOSAL TO SUPPORT ACTIVITY IN THE 100-YEAR FLOOD PLAIN AND WETLAND FLORIDA CDBG GRANT # 12DB-OH-02-75-02-N27 Date of Notice: March 29, 2012 Name of Responsible Entity: City of Sopchoppy, Florida Address: 105 Municipal Avenue(P.O. Box 1219) City, State, Zip Code: Sopchoppy, Florida 32358 Telephone Number: 850-962-4611 TO: All Interested Parties: This is to give notice that the City of Sopchoppy has received a Community Development Block Grant (Neighborhood Revitalization)from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity(DEO). The funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban development (HUD). The primary project (met needs) is to provide flood, drainage and recreation improvements in areas that do not meet current day standards. The proposed CDBG recreation improvements(met needs) will include a play station for younger children with site improvements such as a low protective wall around the play station that can also serve as seating. This portion of the CDBG project will be located at Myron B. Hodge City Park which is adjacent to the Sopchoppy River. The proposed flood and drainage improvements (met needs) include installing a large stormwater pipe in the existing ditch on Gulf Street and backfilling it so that only a small swale will be needed along the street. Also proposed is replacing the culvert at Park Avenue with a new large size one which would include a large drainage retention box. After the met needs are accomplished, and if funds are available, future needs will include ditch reshaping and culverts for other streets that are near Gulf Street and Park Ave. The future need streets include Summer Street, Municipal Ave., Blossom Ave., Sheldon Street, Argyle Street, Faith Ave. and Yellow Jacket Avenue. This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4)of Executive Order 11988 for Floodplain Management, and is implemented by HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for the HUD action that is within and/or affects a floodplain. The City has determined that this project passes through the 100-year floodplain (and wetlands) on publicly owned property and/or public right of way. There is no practical alternative to the proposed project. The project will have no significant impact on the environment for the following reasons: 1. Facilities will be in the existing street right-of-way and/or publicly owned property which is already improved. 2. All construction will be properly permitted by the applicable agencies. The City of Sopchoppy is interested in discussing alternatives to this project and securing public perceptions of possible adverse impacts that could result from the project as well as potential minimization measures. Additional agencies involved in this project include the State of Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Florida State Clearinghouse(having reviewed the project with no negative comments)and Florida Department of Environmental Protection(permits). Comments on the proposed project will be accepted until Monday, April 16, 2012. Please send your comments to the City of Sopchoppy, attention: Jackie Lawhon, City Clerk at 105 Municipal Avenue (P.O. Box 1219), Sopchoppy, FL 32358. The City may also be contacted by email at jackie.lawhon@sopchoppy.org, or by phone at 850-962-4611. A more detailed description of the project and flood/wetland maps are available for citizen review at the above address between the hours at 9:00AM and 4:00PM. Colleen Q.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 29, 2012 Page 9BBy DAVID ROYSETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, March 23 This was supposed to be a week focused on the drawing of political lines. Instead, Florida was forced this week to think about the definition of other lines the line between self defense and murder, and the racial lines that evidently still divide who can consider themselves safe on a walk back from the store. As the Legislature recovered from the end of its regular work period and got into its session on redistricting, the prevailing assumption was that lawmakers this week would be neck-deep in the most political of processes, carving up the state into new political boundaries, lining up the states political representation for the decade to come. Legislators were in Tallahassee to do that, but as so often happens in government and politics, the weeks focus was overcome by something in the real world. The agenda for the states lawmakers and its governors gets hijacked all the time and it usually involves someones death. Lawmakers in the past didnt intend to spend nearly half the session writing laws named after murdered little girls like Carlie Brucia or Jessica Lunsford, or dealing with whether the autopsy photos of Dale Earnhardt should be public, or whether Terri Schiavo should be allowed to die. Sad events occur and take over the best laid plans of politicians. This week it was the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Martin was shot to death while walking through a gated community in Sanford where his fathers girlfriend lives. He was black. He was unarmed, coming back from the store with some Skittles and an iced tea. He was being followed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, 28, who after shooting Martin to death, claimed he was defending himself against the unarmed teen. Zimmerman hasnt been charged. Thats about all thats known by the general public about the actual circumstances surrounding the shooting. The case raised again this week the oft-asked question about whether justice is blind to skin color. Trayvon Martin was a black kid walking in a mixed-race neighborhood where there had been some tension, and where there had been some crime. Zimmerman is a white man of Hispanic heritage. Several black lawmakers this week asked: if each man had the others skin color, would there have been an arrest immediately? But the case also got attention in Tallahassee circles this week because it touched on the nature of the law. The shooting raised a question, in the highest pro le case yet, about a relatively new law on Floridas books that opponents had warned would lead to indiscriminate shootings. In 2005, the Legislature voted to change the selfdefense statute to say that when someone feels threatened and isnt breaking the law themselves, they no longer have a duty to retreat from the situation and instead, in the words of the statute, the person has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so By weeks end, not only had the central Florida community of Sanford seen the usual responses to questionable acts of violence with racial undertones an outpouring of support for the victim, political grandstanding, a march, calls for healing, and calls for justice but there was another reaction that wasnt so expected. Gov. Rick Scott called for a more thorough look at the issue and the states self-defense law. After being quiet on the subject for a couple weeks, and seemingly caught off guard by the storys eruption into the national consciousness, Scott then went further than many expected. He announced the creation of a task force that will actually hold hearings at which people, presumably, may be allowed to criticize the existing law. For a white Republican to agree with black and Democratic lawmakers that a new look at a law that was championed by the right and in particular the gun lobby was a surprise to many who had suggested that some in the white power structure were likely hoping the case would simply go away quickly. As we exercise our right to be free and secure both in public and in the privacy of our own homes, it is important that we have an open and honest discussion on these issues so that we might help avoid such tragedies in the future, Scott said. Backers of the stand your ground law, were largely quiet this week, although the sponsors of the 2005 legislation, Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala and former Sen. Durell Peaden, a Crestview Republican, both said the law shouldnt really be at issue in this case, that it didnt apply. The law was meant to protect people who were defending themselves against truly threatening assailants, said Peaden. And that didnt appear to be the case in the Martin shooting. It sounds like he shot a guy who was innocent, said Peaden. That has nothing to do with this law. Or as Baxley put it: Nothing in that statute authorizes people to pursue and confront people. Thats the problem in this case. The local prosecutor stepped aside for a new one, appointed by the governor, and the local police chief has also stepped away from the case, at least temporarily. The feds and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement are investigating. The Trayvon Martin shooting got attention well beyond Sanford and far beyond the halls of the state Capitol this week becoming an international phenomenon, one of those occasional events that becomes omnipresent for a time on cable TV and the internet. The case was on the front page of the New York Times. Even President Obama took note of it on Friday, saying: When I think of this boy, I think about my own kids. I can only imagine what his parents are going through. If I had a son, hed look like Trayvon. REDISTRICTING Redistricting is a hard sell for the general public anyway, and the subject could have been easy to overshadow. For the political people in Tallahassee, they had to keep some focus on the subject this week, with a deadline approaching for getting in place new political maps acceptable to a Supreme Court that rejected the rst attempt at drawing state Senate districts. The Senate tried again this week, passing 31-6 a new map that Democrats complained was worse than the rst one in its ignoring of the courts objections, namely that it seems to favor incumbents too much, in violation of the constitution. But with the bills passage, it heads now to the House, which had been expected to largely rubber stamp the Senates drawing of its own districts. That isnt a total given theres some push among Hispanics for changing the Senate-passed map to allow for a fourth Hispanic-friendly seat in Miami-Dade County. That could blow up a lot of other well-laid plans, however, forcing other districts to be redrawn, and angering Senate leadership, so its not fully certain whether the House will simply pass what the Senate did, or will try to alter it. The plan, once passed in some fashion, goes back to the Supreme Court, which if it doesnt approve of the new map, will craft a plan of its own. ELECTION LAW Meanwhile, another effort to control who is in of ce and who isnt, came back into view this week. Last year, when lawmakers passed an elections law that changed several processes for voter registration, initiative proposals, and the number of early voting days, they also quietly changed a law that spells out how long you must be registered in a particular political party before you may run for office as a member of that party. It was six months, now it is a year before qualifying, which is 17 months before an election. That caught at least one candidate off guard, and changed her plans. Former state Rep. and Sen. Nancy Argenziano, a Republican throughout her legislative career, left the party a while back, and wanted to run for Congress as a Democrat. Only she didnt join that party in time under the new law. She sued over the law, but lost and was facing the prospect of running as a member of the Independent Party, which she decided would likely mean shed lose. So this week, Argenziano, an outspoken character who is either really well liked or pretty much despised, said shell move from Tallahassee back to her old home of Citrus County, where shell run for a House seat currently held by Rep. Jimmie Smith, R-Inverness. At the very end of the week, on Friday, Scott signed into law a controversial measure allowing students to deliver inspirational messages at compulsory school functions. The idea was admittedly aimed at increasing public Christian prayer in schools, though technically it would allow students to say pretty much anything at an assembly, because it says adults cant have a say in what message the child wants to deliver. STORY OF THE WEEK: The death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin captures the attention of Florida, and much of the nation. Talk of the way the states self defense law works, and whether blacks are unfairly treated by law enforcement, overtook events at the Capitol this week. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Put t he guy in jail. It sounds like he shot a guy who was innocent. That has nothing to do with this law. Former state Sen. Durell Peaden, R-Crestview, arguing that George Zimmermans shooting of Trayvon Martin was totally unrelated to the stand your ground law.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Overtaken by life, and death, in the real world Brain Teaser 1 14 17 20 26 32 39 43 51 55 63 66 69 2 27 52 3 28 53 4 29 47 5 23 44 21 33 40 48 56 64 67 70 6 15 18 34 45 57 7 30 58 8 31 54 9 24 41 49 25 35 50 65 68 71 10 16 19 22 42 46 59 11 36 60 12 37 61 13 38 62ACROSS1.Criesone'seyes out 6.
