By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThis time last year, the countys auditor appeared before the Wakulla County Commission with an audit report for 2009-10 that declared the county on the verge of a “ nancial emergency. What a difference a year makes. This year, at the June 18 commission meeting, Richard Powell, CPA, said the county was not experiencing deteriorating “ nancial conditions at the end of 2011 and needed to continue its present course of action with increasing its reserves. Powell said it was clear there was a big turn around from 2009-10 to “ scal year 2010-11. You stopped a decline that wasnt being stopped,Ž Powell said. Last year, Powell told the commission that if funds from the jail bed revenue had not been moved, the county would have been classi“ ed as in a state of “ nancial emergency. He also told the commission that in several areas there was an excess of expenditures and the county spent $1.6 million more than it received. The reason was a combination of using the fund balance to balance the budget, not collecting revenues expected and not making adjustments. The countys reserve fund was in bad shape for two consecutive years, he said. Youve reversed the trend,Ž he said. The countys reserves have doubled, he said. The county should have three months worth of reserves, which would be about $4.9 million. The county currently has $1.8 million, according to Deputy Clerk Greg James. County Administrator David Edwards said the county plans to collect the proper amount over the next 5 years. So we can have a good, solid, stable government,Ž Edwards said. Commissioner Jerry Moore questioned how the county got to this position, wondering if it was a result of departments cutting costs or the commission raising taxes. Commissioner Randy Merritt said no one was happy about having to do what needed to be done. This included increasing the Communications Services Tax and “ re assessment and implementing the Public Service Tax and solid waste assessment. We just did what we had to do,Ž Merritt said. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the county decreased its total expenses by $2 million. Thats a result of us buckling down,Ž he said.Continued on Page 3A Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 24th Issue Thursday, June 21, 2012 T h r e e S e c t i o n s Three Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents kll h h h h k l l h P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y R e a d D a i l y Published Weekly, Read DailynewsThe WakullaThe Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 6A Community .....................................................................Page 7A School .............................................................................Page 8A Sports .............................................................................Page 9A Outdoors ......................................................................Page 10A Water Ways.....................................................................Page 11A Sheriffs Report.............................. ...............................Page 13A Arts & Entertainment .......................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 7B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 7B INDEX OBITUARIES Dorothy Ethel Bull Robert ‘Mickey’ WyantMike Scott seeks another term on Wakulla school boardBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netMike Scott is seeking re-election to the Wakulla County School Board, District 2. In seeking election to the school board 16 years ago, I made a commitment to the citizens of Wakulla County that I would provide sound leadership, be actively involved in the district, pursue ways to draw involvement from parents and the community into the educational process of all students and always make sure that the educational needs and advancements are the highest priority in the district,Ž Scott said. It has been an honor and privilege to serve with a school board and administration that is sincerely committed to the success of all students and believes that success begins with great teachers and staff,Ž he said. Scott is being challenged by teacher Melisa Taylor for the seat. Since the race is non-partisan, the election will be held and decided in the Aug. 14 primary. Among the achievements of the school district that Scott is proud of during his tenure on the board: € Wakulla has been named an Academically High-Performing District for four consecutive years by the state Department of Education. The distinction is based on maintaining excellent academic achievement, meeting the class size reduction requirements and having a superior “ nancial audit. € Wakulla has earned enough points to be graded an AŽ district for six consecutive years. This ranked Wakulla in the top 10 of all Florida school districts. € Wakulla High Schools graduation rate was 88 percent, higher than the state average of 80 percent, and ranking Wakulla 11th in the state. € For 2012, Wakullas third grade students tied for first in the region and “ fth in the state for FCAT reading, 60 percent of Wakullas 10th graders scored pro“ cient in reading, coming in sixth in the state, while 57 percent of ninth graders scored proficient in reading, 10th highest in the state. € The Advanced Placement program offers 14 different courses, which is extraordinary for a small, rural district. In 2001, 26 students were enrolled in AP classes. Current scheduling show more than 500 student requests for one or more of the 14 AP courses being offered at Wakulla High School. € Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) supports student success in Honors, Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment classes. Wakulla implemented AVID in 2009-10 with 75 students in grades eight and nine. In 2011-12, the program has 175 students in grades eight through 11. € The High School Medical Academy started five years ago with 189 students. In the 2012-13 school year, there will be more than 200 students. An average of 30 seniors graduate each year with a Certified Nursing Assistant certi“ cation. € There will be an Engineering Academy for the 2012-13 school year. A gifted and talented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program is offered through the Panhandle Area Education Consortium with many hands-on activities and “ eld trips.Continued on Page 3A By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews,netThe idea of the community of Panacea becoming incorporated has been discussed for years and is “ nally starting to take shape. Over the years, it has been discussed and now were trying to move forward,Ž said Sherrie Miller, member of Panacea Waterfronts Florida Partnership Committee, the group behind the push. It just makes sense to move in that direction, she added. The community is already well organized and citizens are heavily involved, thanks to Panacea Waterfronts and other committees. Panacea Waterfronts Chairman Walt Dickson said they performed an informal survey of residents in the area who seemed in favor of incorporating Panacea. If we were incorporated, it would give us the legal entity to work with the county and get a lot of things done,Ž Dickson said. Panacea Waterfronts does a lot around the county, but is limited by its small budget. The first step in the process is to develop a charter, which is basically a constitution for the local government. It would set the boundaries of the municipality, its form of government, size and makeup of its commission and certain governmental processes. The charter is the easy part, Dickson said. They are looking to other cities as models, like the one created for Cedar Key. The dif“ cult, or more expensive part, is the feasibility study, which will determine if it is even feasible for Panacea to move forward, Miller said. The feasibility study will determine how the city would run, including how it would provide fire protection and public safety and how revenue would be generated, Dick son said. Before now, the cheapest estimate they were given for the study was anywhere between $20,000 and $25,000. But after attending the Waterfronts Florida Program Managers Meeting in Crystal River recently, they found two University of Florida law professors who agreed to perform the study, with their help of their law students, for $5,000. The study will begin this summer, Miller said. Panacea Waterfronts will pay for the study from money raised through the Rock the Dock “ shing tournament held recently. The only way a municipality can become incorporated is for the Legislature to adopt the charter for incorporation by a special act upon determination that the standards in Florida Statutes have been met, according to the Florida House of Representatives Local Government Formation Manual. Once the feasibility study and charter are complete, Panacea must submit it to the legislature by the “ rst week in December, Dickson said. A proposed special act is “ led by a member of the Legislature in the form of a local bill. Rep. Leonard Bembry has agreed to “ le the bill, Dickson said.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com I was born April 25, 1936 in Dickson, a little town in eastern Iowa. My parents Harold and Lily Mae Blanchard both were school teachers. My father accepted the position of School Superintendent in Welton, Iowa, population 101, where I attended school through the 8th grade, a class of 13 students. It was the consolidated school, with kindergarten through 12th grade. Nowadays the old school is gone; they made a re station out of it. My brothers Tom and Mike were born in Welton. When I was in the 9th grade we moved to Clinton, Iowa, where I attended Clinton High. When I got out of high school I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do, but with both parents, two aunts and a grandmother all teachers, I did know I didn’t want to be a teacher! I went to the University of Iowa for a year, more or less to satisfy my fo lks who demanded that I have a college education, but I learned so much that rst year that I didn’t see any need to go back. I then spent ve years getting married, having two kids and learning that there was more to college than I had been able to grasp in that rst year. I came to know what it was I wanted to do. I went to the University of Missouri for another three years and graduated with a degree in Wildlife Management. I have not been in the military. One thing about having that ve-year split in my education was that I had two kids, and at the time they didn’t take people who had children, so I missed out on the Viet Nam War and after that there wasn’t a draft. I thought at one time that I had really missed out on a lot by not going into the service; but on the other hand, in those ve years between schools I learned so much that it probably offset anything that I could have picked up in the military. I got exposed to a lot of different jobs in that ve years and it has really come in handy. In sixth grade I had acute nephritis and had to be in the hospital for a few days. One day the nurse came by and said, “You di dn’t eat your toast.” I said, “I didn’t have a knife to butter it.” She said, “You know, if you didn’t have a knife you could alwa ys use the back of a fork or spoon and go ahead and butter your bread.” That probably did more for me in the way of common sense in my wh ole life than anything else anybody could ever say. You know, if you’ve got a problem, somewhere along the line you can gure out the answer to it. My career with the State of Florida began in 1963 when I was hired by the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission as Regional Fisheries Biologist for northwest Florida. I was in that position from 1963 until 1970 when I was hired as the rst staff director of the House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee. I then moved back with Game and Fish as Chief of Fisheries Management and was there until 1971 when I was hired by the Department of Transportation as their legislative lobbyist. I remained with the Department of Transportation for ten years and then was hired by the Department of Revenue to head up some of their departments. During the time that I was with the Department of Revenue I received permission and ran for County Commissioner and was elected in Wakulla County. I continued to work for the Department of Revenue and was contacted one morning by the sheriff who said he would like to talk with me. His emergency management director had apparently resigned, and so negotiations continued and I accepted the job with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Department as Wakulla County’s Emergency Management Director. I remained in that position for about eight years. Then the County Commission called upon me to come in and ll on an interim basis the position of County Manager. During this time I had planned retirement and even though they would have liked to extend my time there, I went ahead with retirement. Shortly before I retired I had been contacted by Crowder Excavating and they indicated that I had passed the word along that I’d be interested in some part time work. So in talking with them it was decided that I would go to work for Crowder Disaster Recovery and soon afterwards was asked to take over as director of that division where I remained for about four years. In my life of public service I feel like I’ve accomplished some important things and maybe some that weren’t that important. But there are several that I’d like to bring back and tell about. One was during the huge sh kills on Escambia Bay in Pensacola. All of a sudden they had begun to have massive die-offs of sh in Escambia Bay. Tests that we took indicated that there was a tremendous amount of nitrogen being discharged into the bay. This was brought before the Escambia County Commission and despite concerns about the possible loss of jobs, the Escambia County Commission backed by the Santa Rosa County Commission made a decision that they were going after the big companies that surrounded Escambia Bay and clean it up. They hired a feisty young lawyer by the name of Larry Hips and an excellent writer with the Pensacola News by the name of Mike Albertson. We began to take on the big companies that surrounded the bay. At rst we met with a lot of resistance but we stuck at it. Gradually the companies began to see the need for change and they installed equipment for abatement of the materials that were going into Escambia Bay. Today the bay is pretty clean, and sh kills have stopped. I consider it one of the big successes that a very brave Escambia County Commission backed by Santa Rosa is what really saved that bay. At the same time that we were doing this with Escambia Bay, we also took on Eleven Mile Creek. Our test gauges showed that sh placed in test cages in Eleven Mile Creek did not live longer than a minute and twenty four seconds. So the company consented and has installed pollution abatement and the conditions in Eleven Mile Creek have improved dramatically. The other one that I look at is Little River that comes from Georgia through Gadsden County and into Lake Talquin. At times th ey would have sh kills that started way up in Georgia and would wipe out the total population of Little River all the way to Lake Talquin. We worked with the company. Of course every one of them hates to spend the money that it takes to prevent this from happening, but that company was very cooperative. They worked hard and installed the necessary equipment. The sh kills have stopped and Little River is now clean and very shable. I’ve never been an outward communication religious man, but have always had a strong belief in the Lord and His power. My comm unications with God have been in the duck blind, deer stand, shing boat and on the golf course. Some communication was about me, some was about the Lord. Many people have said that their prayers are with me, and I can actually feel those prayers. I always had considered the traditional burial, but then after several people had i ndicated that they would like to have a piece of my ash, cremation was the only way to satisfy those. I am survived by my loving wife of fourteen wonderful years, Regina; my brother Tom and his wife Dawn of Jefferson City, Missou ri, their two children Matt and Ginny; my brother Mike and his wife Deb of Eau Claire, Wisconsin and their daughter Lindsey; two children, Terry Blanchard (Flo) and D ebra Lee, both of Tallahassee; two stepdaughters, Mardi Scott of Tarpon Springs and Michelle Siviter (Robert) of St. Petersburg; three grandchildren, Nick, Adam a nd Ronnie, all of Tallahassee; Nick’s wife Felicity, great grandson Jackson, and many close friends, far too many to name, but I must name two: Joel Castro, who must hav e been sent by God to help me through this; and Donny Crum. Donny Crum has been like a brother to me for nearly twenty years. We’ve been friends, we’ve been huntin’ buddies, we’ve done shing, we’ve gone a number of places from Texas to Saskatchewan and spent numerous nights waiting for storms to possibly come ashore in Wakulla County, whether to evacua te or not evacuate. Donny has always been there and as far as I’m concerned he’s one of the greatest men that I have ever known. I am thankful to have met and been associated with so many ne people in my lifetime, and I have appreciated their prayers.

Continued from Page 3A € The Career and Technical Education (CTE) offers programs in Culinary, Carpentry, Accounting, Web Design, TV Production, Medical Academy, Engineering and more as a dual-enrolled student at Lively Technical Center. Scott says the district still faces tough challenges because of continuing legislative mandates and ongoing reduction in education funding. Employees havent had a payraise in years, only one-time bonuses, he noted, but the school board and administration have tried to offset that by absorbing insurance costs and avoiding lay-offs. This year, he said, it looks like some insurance bene“ ts will be cut. But no lay-offs,Ž he said. Thats our biggest thing.Ž This school board and administration have been weathering a dif“ cult economic storm over the past three years, but have always stayed focused with the priority of making sure the academic success is maintained, continuing to reward our great teachers as education funding allows and hold employees harmless with increases in medical insurance and maintaining jobs,Ž he said. I believe we have successfully done this with our budget process from sound decisions, experience and recommendations from a highly quali“ ed administration and staff.Ž One big success Scott points to is the construction of more than $46 million in new educational facilities in the district over the past 12 years at a cost of $9.2 million to local taxpayers. We are educating 100 percent of our students in state-of-the-art, brick-andmortar facilities and not in portable classrooms,Ž he said. I believe this speaks volumes to the vision and experience of this school board and I have been honored that the citizens of Wakulla County have allowed me to be a part of this success for 16 years.Ž Scott is a lifelong resident of Wakulla County, married to the former Nikki Sanders for 24 years. Both are graduates of Wakulla High School. They have two children: daughter Corban is an 11th grader at Wakulla High School, and son Connor is a seventh grader at Riversprings Middle School.Scott seeks re-election to Wakulla school boardContinued from Page 1AIssues that were addressed last year have been improve, but hadnt been fully corrected at the time of the audit, Powell said. These included purchase orders being issued after the fact, SHIP grant documentation being hard to track and grant reports being hard to reconcile. He recommended having one person be in charge of the timeline for grants. There were no new reportable “ ndings this time, he said. Falling in line with the budget, an item to establish a fund balance policy was brought forward at the meeting. The policy states that the general fund, special revenue funds and enterprise funds should have three months or 25 percent of operating revenues set aside. The capital project funds should have the “ scal year end fund balance and estimated revenues for the ensuing “ scal year to meet all outstanding expenditures. It sets forth a road map,Ž said Deputy Administrator Tim Barden. This policy was approved by the clerks office and audit committee, Barden said. Merritt said this would prevent de“ cit spending. Stewart thanked staff, the clerks of“ ce and audit committee for planning ahead and working together. So we arent operating in a knee jerk anymore,Ž Stewart said. The commission voted unanimously to approve the fund balance policy.Audit report shows major improvement By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe “ rst meeting of the Community Center Advisory Committee was held on June 11 and the consensus among the members was that there was a need for direction from the Wakulla County Commission. We need to know what our charge is today,Ž said Committee Member Steve Brown. Brown said some of the duties, responsibilities and objectives have already been completed. Nothing like a sense of the history to plan for the future,Ž Brown said. The county acquired the 22-acre property that was previously home to New Life Church on May 24, 2010, but has yet to offer programs and services at the facility. The county received a legislative appropriation for $392,000 for the community center. Not until after buying the current community center did they “ nd out they couldnt use this funds to purchase an existing building. The money can be used on remodeling and additions. Currently, the county is “ nalizing renovation plans for the center, as well as entering into an agreement with Capital Area YMCA to operate within one of the buildings of the community center and manage that facility. The county sent out a request for proposals last year for an organization to run the center at no cost to the county and received one response, which was from the YMCA. Other groups and organizations will be able to use the facilities as well. We have the legislative appropriation, but we dont have money for operations,Ž said County Commissioner Lynn Artz. In the current design plans, what used to be the sanctuary would be utilized by the YMCA and would be renovated to have a free weight and cardio room, “ tness class room, kid zone and restrooms and showers. The other building would remain as it is, with several of“ ces. Also include in the plans is the addition of an open ” oor gymnasium. The purpose of the committee, as set by the Wakulla County Commission, is to provide guidance regarding the development of the Community Center site and programming, including planning activities, programs and services, seeking grant funding, obtaining community input and involvement, and to assist in developing a long-term plan for the Community Center. The committee members are Brown, Senior Center Director R.H. Carter, retired art teacher Diane Perez, School Board appointee Louis Hernandez, YMCA representative Ken Franklin, WHS Assistant Principal Simeon Nelson, School Resource Of“ ce Billy Jones, Sopchoppy City Commissioner Aginita Rosier, Charlotte Cobb, Bill Versiga and Natalie Crum. Artz said she hopes this group will help shepherd this idea forward and help with fundraising and spreading the word, as well as future plans for the site. The committee members agreed that they need to see the site plan design for the Community Center, take a tour of the site and the results from the citizen survey about what they would like to see at the center. They also wanted to review the request for proposals for the design and the memorandum of understanding with the YMCA, once those are complete. County Administrator David Edwards said the county plans to send out the RFP within the next month. We want to be operational in January 2013,Ž Artz said. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCOAST Charter School Principal Alyssa Higgins appeared before the St. Marks City Commission at its meeting on June 14 to update the city on the schools hope to eventually build an addition. The project is still in the preliminary stages, Higgins said. The addition would allow the school to have 50 more students. Enrollment is currently at 130 students and Higgins said she would like to get to 136 before they start building. We have the need for it academically, but the numbers arent there,Ž Higgins said. COAST is housed at the old St. Marks Community Center, which is city property. Higgins said the building will be an additional building and not a portable classroom. It will also be designed to look like the existing building. It will be paid for through capital outlay funds from the federal government, she said. The city commission seemed responsive to the idea, but wanted speci“ c site plans for the addition. In other news: € The commission approved a resolution to prohibit the display of “ reworks on public property on the Fourth of July. Attorney Rhonda DiVagno Morris of the citys law “ rm said the city might run into a problem and this is a way for the sheriffs of“ ce to enforce it. If the city wants something more permanent, she suggested creating an ordinance. € City Manager Zoe Mans“ eld asked the commission to increase her spending limit. Currently, she can spend under $500 without having to come to the board for approval. She said that has been in place for 40 years and costs have gone up. Commissioner Phil Cantner suggested tripling it to $1,500. Commissioner Allen Hobbs countered with $750. They voted unanimously to raise it to $750. € The commission set a special called meeting for June 25 at 2 p.m. to open the bids for the streetscape improvement project funded by a Community Development Block Grant for $600,000. They also set a meeting for June 28 at 1:30 p.m. to award the winning bid. The design includes the addition of a sidewalk on both sides of Port Leon Drive from Pine Street to Riverside Drive. At the end of Riverside Drive, there will be an imprint of a lighthouse in the center of the road and lighting and landscaping improvements, which includes a 4-foot median in certain points of the road, which would have flowers and other plants to help with the beauti“ cation of the road.CITY OF ST.

Editor, The News: I am voting for Mrs. Melisa Taylor in the election for school board, District 2. I am going into my senior year of college at FSU and have had many different professors and teachers assistants but still consider Mrs. Taylor to be the best teacher I have ever had. To this day I think her class has helped me more than any other. She taught me how to organize and coherently express my thoughts, a skill not many guys have (especially a high school football player). The reason Mrs. Taylor was such a great teacher was not because of her curriculum but because she cared so much; she cared about my education far more than I did at the time. Mrs. Taylor has had an enormous and priceless impact on my life and I will always be thankful to her. Mrs. Taylor is more than a teacher, she knows how to better educate students and give them the motivation to care about their own education. Mrs. Taylor changes students lives. Stuart Brimner ssb09@myfsu.edu Editor, The News: I just wanted to take the time to write this letter to say thank you to Mr. Bobby Pearce for taking time out of his busy day to come and speak to Boy Scout Troop 126 regarding the political process and “ eld some tough questions from our boy scouts and their leaders. Boy Scout Troop 126 meets every Wednesday at 7 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 3251 Crawfordville Hwy. Boy Scouts include Mathias Gunnarsson, Maxamillion Hollett, Nickolas Hollett, Ryan Willis, Patton Willis, Colby Caplinger, Andrew Annand, Aaron Wiggins, Timithy Ketchem, Kevin Ketchem. Scout Masters are John S. Morgan Jr. and Benny Wiggins. Brent R. TuckerPresident, Crawfordville BranchThe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Editor, The News: I saw the article about the plan to ask us to pay an assessment fee yearly of $200 to pave our county roads in Wakulla Gardens (Wakulla Gardens residents face pay for paving,Ž front page, May 24). I do not understand why this is necessary when every home in here paid building permit fees and pays property taxes. That money is what should be paying for the paving … where did all of that money go? I do not know of anywhere else where residents are asked to pay above and beyond the property taxes to the county for paving of county neighborhood roads. If there is no money for this, then I say there should be an audit done of the countys books as to where that money was spent. When they were approving these houses to be built they knew they would need to pave the roads so they should have put aside into a fund to pay for this in the future. Barbara Whiddon Crawfordville Editor, The News: Kudos to U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle for blocking much of House Bill 1355 commonly referred to as the Voter Suppression Act.Ž This new law passed by the Florida Legislature cut in half the number of days Early Voting can take place in Florida counties, implemented a 48-hour deadline for the return of voter registration forms to the Supervisor of Elections Of“ ce and instituted “ nes and punishment for those who did not meet the laws new requirements. Judge Hinkle wrote The statute and rule impose a harsh and impractical 48hour deadline for an organization to deliver applications to a voter registration of“ ce and effectively prohibit an organization from mailing applications in. And the statute and rule impose burdensome record-keeping and reporting requirements that serve little if any purpose, thus rendering them unconstitutional even to the extent they do not violate the NVRA (National Voting Rights Act).Ž I hope that because of Judge Hinkles ruling, Santa Rosa County school teacher Dawn Quarles gets a reprieve on the $1,000 “ ne she faces for failing to get her voter registration applications into the elections of“ ce on time. In an effort to teach her students about government and voting she had her students register to vote. She failed to get the new certi“ cation required by the state to register voters and waited beyond the 48 hour period to turn the forms in and faces a huge “ ne. Everyone who is eligible should register to vote. It is simple process only taking minutes to complete, and the courteous and able staff at the Supervisor of Elections Of“ ce will be happy to assist you with this process. But do it now. The voter registration deadline for the primary election is on July 16. The registration deadline for Novembers General Election is Oct. 9. Be sure to bring your ID. The best ID to possess is a Florida Drivers License, second best is a Florida ID Card. If you do not have either of those the last 4 digits of your Social Security card will work though may delay the process.. After you are registered, become a knowledgeable voter. Instead of relying on name recognition based on the number of signs you see, or the negative ads run that we will be bombarded by for the next several months, go to political forums where candidates speak and answer questions. Do some research on where they stand on issues important to you, and talk to them. They want to hear from voters and are more accessible than you might think. At least two candidate forums for local races will be held in July and there will probably be others. Candidates for Superintendent of Schools have been invited to a forum at the New Bridge Missionary Baptist Church (across from Macks Country Meats) at 7 p.m. on July 10 and candidates for Sheriff are invited to a forum at the church at 7 p.m. on July 17. The Primary Election occurs on Tuesday, Aug. 14. Our candidates for U.S. Senate, Congress, and State Representative will be determined in the primary election. The primary will elect our local School Board and Soil & Water Conservation Board members. The good news is that Wakulla County has a history of strong voter turnout. All registered voters can go to the polls on Aug. 14 and on Nov. 6 to cast their votes for local, state and federal offices and express their opinion on the numerous amendments to our State Constitution. But you dont have to wait until Election Day. Early voting begins on the second Saturday before each election allowing voters eight days to cast their vote at the Supervisor of Elections Of“ ce including Saturdays (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and on Sunday, Aug. 5 and Nov. 3, from 1 to 7 p.m. But if you are like me, dont wait for Early Voting. Sign up for an Absentee Ballot. Also known as Vote by Mail, all registered voters can sign up for this voting method. If you sign up for vote by mail, ballots will be mailed to your address beginning July 10 for the primary election and Oct. 2 for the General Election. This allows you, the voter, over a month to consider your choices. You can sit down in your own home, and mark your ballot, no standing in line, no worrying about whether you brought the right ID card to the polls, and if you get to a race or issue that you are unfamiliar with it gives you a chance to do some research by calling a friend or looking it up on the internet. When you get to the 11 constitutional amendments on the ballot you will really appreciate this extra time! You can turn in your ballot by mail at any time up to Election Day or turn it in by hand up to the Supervisor of Elections Of“ ce up to 7 p.m. on Election Day. This fall be a good citizen and vote! Doug Jones Crawfordville Editor, The News: Two weeks ago Brandon Larrabee of the News Service of Florida wrote in The Wakulla News what I thought was a rather snottyŽ remark about Ken Detzners mandate to assure that voter registration roles are legal (Weekly Roundup, Should I stay or should I go?,Ž June 7). To quote Larrabee, the people who will decide those races are voters … at least those who are left if and when Secretary of State Ken Detzner and the Supervisors of Elections “ nish clearing off what they say are ineligible voters.Ž Even if the approximately 2,600 voters on the list were all deemed ineligible it would hardly leave Florida without legal voters. The more serious question is neither a State of Florida question nor a question of party af“ liation. The question is, why is Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice so eager to sue states that are attempting to make their voter roles legitimate? Florida is not the “ rst state that the Justice Department has gone after for wanting to right wrongs. Texas and South Carolina, as well as others, have also felt the long arm of Eric Holder on voter ID and voter rights issues. Although he dismissed a Pennsylvania voter intimidation lawsuit that was actually brought to him. The Florida Secretary of State said, After nearly a year of requests to The Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, the federal government has shown no signs of meeting their legal requirements to provide access.Ž In other words the question of eligibility could easily be established in many cases should this database, which Florida is entitled to, be provided. The Department of Homeland Security however has stonewalled the request and now claims that federal law does not allow for voters to be removed from voter lists within 90 days of an election (the primary is Aug. 14). Of course the federal government would like all states to allow people to be able to register at the time of voting and without ID. None of this makes sense. People would like to use the argument that the Democrats want no one to be disenfranchised while the Republicans would like to see everyone not of their party disenfranchised. This is absolutely crazy. The Justice Department criticizes Florida for wanting to verify voter roles by removing deceased, illegal, and ineligible voters! The DOJ is not claiming that anyone has been mistakenly removed from any one of these groups but rather that they might be. So why will they not help the state certify their voter roles and reduce the chance of error? The federal government has the information that Florida needs. What ever happened to people working together to insure that what we do as citizens of the United States is legal, fair and as unflawed as possible? Disenfranchisement works both ways. If some-one is allowed to vote who is not legal that then negates the vote of someone who does have the legal right. Eric Holder claims that there is no indication of serious voter fraud in the United States and that it is not a valid issue. So he would rather take the time and money to sue a state that could prove him right? Or perhaps there is more opportunity for voter fraud then he would like to admit. James OKeefe, an investigative reporter, sent one of his associates into Eric Holders voting district in the Washington, D.C. April election. The associate requested a voter ballot in the name of Eric Holder and he was given the ballot. The associate was young and Caucasian and certainly did not “ t the description of our attorney general. Americans take the right to vote seriously. Our tendency as a people is to make sure no one is denied the right to vote. Much is done to err on the side of the voter. In a mobile society such as ours, everyone has access to the technology, transportation and communication systems necessary to establish voter eligibility. Some states will even pay for a person to get the necessary ID. But when Florida wants to correct wrongs it is criticized and condemned as wanting to disenfranchise a voter. The federal government frets that Florida is politicizing a persons right to vote at the time of a national election (although the process started many, many months ago). After the election of 2000 I cannot think of a better time to make sure that we are getting it right. Holder and the Department of Justice needs to work with us to assure that each ballot cast by a legal voter counts. Cynthia Webster Crawfordville Editor, The News: The League of Women Voters of Wakulla would like to thank all the attendees of our public records forum with Barbara Petersen on June 7. We would especially like to thank Scott Joyner from the Wakulla County Library, who “ t the league into the busy library summer schedule.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netRep. Marti Coley presented a tribute to the Wakulla County School Board this week, recognizing the districts achievements. Coley appeared at the school board meeting on Monday, June 18. Coley, R-Marianna, has represented Wakulla for the past seven years. But redistricting has shifted the boundaries of the district and no longer includes Wakulla. Coley told the school board that, as an educator and English teacher, she has been proud of the accomplishments of Wakulla schools. The tribute presented to the school board reads: Whereas, the Wakulla County School District is considered a leader in education by earning a district grade of A from the Department of Education based on total points derived from FCAT scores, and Whereas the accomplishments of the Wakulla County School District in 2011 are numerous and were accomplished by the students, the students parents, the Wakulla County School District faculty, the Wakulla County School Board, and the Wakulla County Superintendent of Schools, now therefore Be it respectfully presented that the Wakulla County School District and all of its schools are recognized for their many impressive accomplishments.Ž It was signed by Rep. Coley. Thank you for letting me represent you for the past seven years,Ž Coley said. In other matters before the school board, a grant application was approved to be submitted for a $50,000 state grant to help renovations to the historic Sopchoppy High School.

As a result of persistent drought, the 4,000-acre lake north of Tallahassee is reduced to several isolated pools. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is suspending some “ shing regulations to allow anglers to take some of the “ sh that remain, especially those that are stressed or trapped in shallow areas. Previously, largemouth bass had to be 18 inches before “ shermen could keep them, but beginning today, anglers can keep “ ve largemouth bass, regardless of size, and their daily bag limit of bream (50) and crappie (25). There is no bag limit on cat“ sh. In addition to legal “ shing methods, anglers may take “ sh by dip net and by hand from Lake Jackson. Cast nets are prohibited. Lake Jackson and other area lakes sit atop a geographic feature called a karst formation. Water ” ows far below ground in limestone caverns and passageways toward the Gulf of Mexico. In times of drought, water drains down the sinks to the aquifer. When normal rainfall returns, the lake re“ lls. All regulations pertaining to turtles, or their take, remain in effect. The take or possession of softshell turtles is prohibited from May 1 through July 21. Also, people cannot possess Florida cooters and snapping turtles.

ObituariesChurch BriefsDorothy Ethel Bull Robert ‘Mickey’ Wyant Out to PastorBy MICHELLE CHRISTENSENSpecial to The News In 2009 a group of churches in our community had a meeting about the needs of the people in our community. They knew hunger was a big issue. After discussing what each church could offer, our pastor at Wakulla Springs Baptist Church Lewis Pollard thought, we may not have space for a food pantry, but we do have land. What about a garden to supplement the food pantries? With help from a church member who was involved with the Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce and many people from the church, a garden was born. The garden was even used as an Eagle Scout project and given the name Garden of Hope.Ž Each year a garden is planted using private and local business donations. Each week the garden is tended and weeded. When the food is ready it is picked, washed and taken to local food pantries. This year alone the garden has produced more than 700 pounds of vegetables that have been donated to four local food pantries. The garden is a lot of dirty, hard work, but each person who works out there enjoys their time in the garden. Our churchs mission is Loving God, Loving People and Serving the World.Ž This garden is grown to give Glory to God and to show him thanks for all the blessings in our lives. We pray that each person and family that receives the donations will understand the ultimate sacri“ ce that Christ gave for us. We would like to extend an open invitation to anyone who may be searching for a church home. Come join us at Wakulla Springs Baptist Church. Everyone is welcome. We consider our church a hospital for the soul. We encourage you to come to one of our services Wednesday at 7 p.m. or Sunday at 10:30 a.m. We have childrens church and a nursery available. For more information visit our website at wakullaspringsbc.org. Anyone who is interested in helping with the garden or wants more information please contact wsbcgardenministry@gmail.com. Editors Note: Michelle Christensen said she was prompted to write this about her churchs efforts to feed the hungry after reading the story Hunger is a problem in WakullaŽ in the May 31 edition of The News.That church with the gardenBy REV. JAMES L. SNYDER Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day.Ž I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The “ rst thing is to de“ ne what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else … like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan … my plan, that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do listŽ for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I “ nish my to-do list. Last Monday, I had just “ nished my morning cup of Joe and “ nished reviewing my to-do list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill?Ž she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1.Ž In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere.

This act laid the foundation for the land-grant university system nationwide. The University of Florida is a land-grant university and home to the UF/IFAS Extension Service which has continuously served every Florida County, including Wakulla County, for almost 100 years. President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act, granting each state 30,000 acres of public land for each member of Congress and establishing the landgrant-system. The land, or money received from its sale, was used to establish and maintain institutions of higher learning. The Morrill Act offered a new kind of college with a focus on making higher education accessible and that would, ƒpromote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions in life,Ž said Lincoln. The magnitude of the land grants impacts has included: increased job creation, economic development, food security, food production and food safety, improved human health and nutrition; and greater natural resource conservation, to name a few.

Spending time in nature also helps children learn about their place in the world and the value of all the life that shares space with us. € Show the value of teamwork: Working together toward a common goal doesnt always come naturally to children … or adults. Parents should look for opportunities to point out their childrens great teamwork. € Make sure they appreciate safety: The best medicine for any problem is prevention. € Build their confidence with at least one skill: Knowledge and skills to a child are like water for a thirsty man in the desert. € Kindness counts: Children should also know that people who make kindness a habit tend to be happier; there is an inherent joy in helping others. I understand parents are busy earning a living to support their children,Ž Cockrell says. But who you raise in the process makes all the difference to the future world.Ž

Sunday at Michigan International Speedway, Earnhardt Jr. captured the Quicken Loans 400 „ and he did it on Fathers Day to make the tears and the sweat and the length between victories all the more emotional. Asked what was the most compelling part of taking the checkered ” ag on this day, Earnhardt Jr. said: To do it for my fans. They stuck behind me all these years. I know exactly what theyve been thinking about and how long theyve been wanting us to get to Victory Lane. This is for them. I appreciate their loyalty and support. We wouldnt have made it back to Victory Lane without it.Ž Earnhardt Jr. was dominating, leading 95 of the races 200 laps on MISs newly resurfaced twomile track and running away from second-place Tony Stewart over the last 60 green ” ag laps to take the checkered ” ag by 5.393 seconds. His run to victory began on lap 70, when Earnhardt Jr. ran down polesitter Marcos Ambrose. He received a challenge from Tony Stewart, who took the lead on the restart following the races “ fth caution, on Lap 88, but Junior re-passed him on Lap 106, going uncontested the rest of the way for his 19th career Cup win.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsNineteen-year-old Stephen Day and his sister, Sara, recently ” ew in from California to spend a few days with their grandparents, Marvin and Ellie Mick of Shell Point. Stephen resently enlisted in the U.S. Marines and he wanted to go “ shing before he reports for duty next month, so Alan Lamarche took him on a three-hour trip in Apalachee Bay. Stephen had the “ shing trip of a lifetime catching and releasing dozens of sea bass, Spanish mackerel and sharks on light tackle. Stephen has enlisted with the Marine Corps for “ ve years. Alan said, This was a real honor to me to help make some back home memories for this future warrior.Ž Offshore shing is great if you can get out I hope all the fathers out there had a nice and relaxing Fathers Day Weekend. It looks like it was a good thing that the Big Bend Saltwater Classic was changed. Initially I thought they had made a mistake by moving it, but after the high winds on Friday and Saturday Im glad they did. The reason for the change was so gag grouper season would be open. Nobody would have been able to get offshore on Friday or Saturday due to the high winds. The new dates of the tournament are July 6 through July 8, starting on the Friday after the Fourth of July. Scallop season is about two weeks away and I asked Bucky if anyone had reported seeing any scallops around St. Marks. He said earlier in the season they had but he hadnt heard anything lately. I dont believe the little rains we had have changed the salinity that much and I believe we should have a good season. I know Keaton Beach and St. Joe are expecting to have plenty again. Bucky said not many folks were “ shing and some folks were having good luck while others struggled. Look for trout on the east and west ” ats in 4 to 5 feet of water and use a white gulp under a Cajun Thunder or use live shrimp. Be prepared to catch lots of cat“ sh and plenty of small sharks. On Monday I went over to St. Joe Bay and “ shed with a neighbor who had rented a condo for a week. He said trout “ shing over there had been very good and the guides were doing a morning and afternoon trip and limiting on trout on both trips. The water was extremely clear as it always is and the wind was blowing like it always does. We started “ shing just a jig and Gulp but changed over to a Cajun Thunder and immediately started catching “ sh. All the “ sh we caught were hanging along the sand and grass and we got our limit in a couple of hours. Lots of Spanish are being caught on the East end of St. George and also on Dog Island Reef. Just look for the schools of bait or birds diving. There are plenty of cobia around and quite a few triple tail. Check the crab buoys for the triple tail and all of the marker buoys for the cobia. Triple tail are gonna love a shrimp cast to them with just a hook and no weight or a D.O.A. Jeff May from Atlanta came to Shell Point on Friday and was planning on taking a group out snapper “ shing in a friends boat. They “ nally went out on Sunday and said it was fairly rough though they did come in with nine red grouper and four snapper, two over 14 pounds. Capt. David Fife said he has been catching quite a few nice reds and some oversize in the Spring Creek, Oyster Bay area. David typically used live mud minnows and he said reds are also being caught using cut mullet on the bottom. On Thursday the weather was absolutely gorgeous and I took out Ricky and Danielle Dyke and Steve Byrd. Ricky and Danielle purchased a trip I donated to Wakulla Ducks Unlimited this year and we “ nally were able to decide on a date to “ sh. We came in with 20 trout, “ ve ” ounder and two Spanish. I told Danielle not to go bragging to folks about how she out“ shed the guys but said if she did I would back it up. She got so excited every time she caught a “ sh and thats what makes this job so fun. Steve said the week before he had gone out of Destin and they came in with their limit of real big snapper. On Friday I took Mike Chase and his buddy Andy Whitaker. Of course you cant ask for two beautiful days in a row and the wind howled all day on Friday. We caught about 50 trout but only eight were keepers and we did have three nice reds. Everything was caught on live shrimp under a Cajun Thunder. Mike has a condo over on the Ochlockonee River and he said last week he went out with some neighbors offshore. They put in at Lanark and came in with their limit of nice snapper, “ ve small kings and a 40pound cobia. Offshore fishing is great if you can get out there and inshore is good when the wind doesnt howl. Remember the Big Bend Saltwater Classic coming up in July and scallop season opens in a couple of week so make sure you have your diver down ” ag. Remember to leave that ” oat plan with someone and be careful out there. Good luck and good “ shing!Inshore is good when the wind doesnt howl From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL SPECIAL TO THE NEWSMaking memories Mosquitoes are outSpecial to The NewsTALLAHASSEE, Fla. … The U.S. Forest Service presented its comprehensive 5-Year Strategic Plan for the Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) during a meeting of the FNST coalition partners at Mission San Luis on Wednesday, June 6. The FNST is a federallydesignated non-motorized recreation trail, which was started by a dedicated group of hikers in the 1960s. The trail consists of 1,079 designated scenic miles and is the only National Scenic Trail that explores a semitropical ecosystem. Although the U.S. Forest Service is the federal administrator for the trail, it relies on its close association with the Florida Trail Association and other coalition members to help oversee this national treasure. Volunteers play an invaluable role in the maintenance of the FNST and the implementation of the strategic plan. We wanted a plan that highlighted priorities that land managers could focus on. In addition, we wanted to provide them with a document that they could refer to as we work together to achieve our common goals,Ž said Forest Supervisor Susan Matthews for the National Forests in Florida.Strategic Plan presented on Scenic TrailThe Florida Department of Health (DOH) reminds Floridians and visitors to take simple preventive measures to protect against contracting mosquito-borne illnesses. Floridians can take simple steps to combat mosquitoes and prevent mosquito-borne illness. DOH encourages three basic precautions to help limit mosquito bites and exposure to mosquito-borne illness: € DRAIN any standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. € COVER skin with clothing or repellent. € COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your residence. If outdoors at dusk or dawn, be cautious as mosquitoes are most active during these times. DOH continues to conduct statewide surveillance for mosquito-borne illnesses, including West Nile virus, Eastern equine encephalitis virus, St. Louis encephalitis virus, malaria and dengue. Symptoms of mosquito-borne illnesses may include headache, fever, fatigue, dizziness, weakness and confusion. It can take two to 14 days to become sick after being bitten by an infected mosquito.

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the beautiful weekend weather we had and spend time with friends and family. The cool mornings have been refreshing! However, our cool weather is nothing compared to the coolness of a Seattle morning. Our Flotilla Staff Of“ cer for Information Services (IS) Duane Treadon headed out west for a specialized training on data entry for the Auxiliary. He sent in the following report. AUXDATA is the information database used by the Auxiliary to record and keep track of several Flotilla activities. Everything from safety patrols, on the water trainings, vessel safety checks, public education classes, marine dealer visits, public affairs and a host of other recreational safe boating. Loved by some, hated by others, AUXDATA is a complex database for IS Officers at the Flotilla, Division, District and National level to input and retrieve valuable information on members activities. Because of its complexity IS Of“ cers are required to attend an Auxiliary C-School for specialized training on how to utilize the system and its sister component AUXINFO. The intense hands-on training was just four days long and held in Seattle. During the class, I learned the proper way to enter and retrieve data. For anyone familiar with paperwork, there is almost nothing more challenging than getting it done properly. The Auxiliary is not immune to this and we work hard to make sure we record what we do in the right way. As they say, if the paperwork is not “ led, then it did not happen. While working through practice exercise with live Auxiliary data, I discovered these interesting facts about Apalachee Bay Flotilla activities since 2001: Members have contributed 65,311.50 hours of service, 8,401.10 hours of on-the-water safety patrols during 1,885 missions with 41 search and rescue missions assisting 88 boaters to safety. Plus 1,062 courtesy vessel safety checks, 1,985 dealer visits, with 1,138 boaters taking a public education course, and performing various public affairs mission totaling 3,601 hours. It is important to point out that as a volunteer organization each one of these missions and hours spent by Auxiliary members saves the Coast Guard money that is a direct savings to the American taxpayers. Each mission and hour spent by an Auxiliary member is task that the Active Duty and Reserve branches of the Coast Guard does not have to do, allowing them to focus their limited funding on critical missions like air operations for offshore search and rescue, disaster response, environmental protection and medical response to boaters far from medical facilities. In a recent study published in the magazine Coast Guard Proceedings, it was estimated that the service provided by Auxiliary members, 4.5 million hours of volunteer service annually, would be a $91 million cost to the Coast Guard if they had to hire full time equivalent personnel to cover this workload. AUXDATA is the tool that helps keep track of these often life saving and valuable hours given by our members. Many of us joined the Auxiliary because we love boating and wanted to help others enjoy a safe day out on the water. In order to continue to do what we do, we have to document our efforts so we continue to get support to be Semper Paratus. Next weekend, Flotilla 12 will host the summer Division Meeting, which will bring together members from Pensacola to Tallahassee-St. Marks and everywhere in-between. We will enjoy fellowship as well as learn what other flotillas are doing and how we may do something better. As Sherrie always says, Safe Boating is no accident. Be sure to file your paperwork and “ ll out a ” oat plan before leaving the dock!UnderwaterWakullaBy Travis Kersting www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 – Page 11Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

In the early days of compressed-gas diving, well before my time, pressurized breathing gas was delivered to the diver from a pump on the surface. After World War II, Jacques Cousteau labeled his back mounted pressure vessel the Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) with very few alterations applied to this basic con“ guration since. A cylinder on the divers back, attached to which was a regulator system to make breathing from the cylinder possible at any reasonable depth. Scuba permitted the common person a chance to swim among the “ sh. Over the years certain conveniences were added. Many of these things were added to increase diver safety and then comfort. The submersible pressure gauge or SMB is the item that displays how much pressure is in the scuba tank. Early systems lacked this item but now is a required piece of equipment. The same applies to the buoyancy compensator which allows the diver to remain buoyant on the surface and neutral underwater. What went virtually unchanged for 60 years was where the scuba cylinder was attached to the diver. That is until dry cavers, looking to explore the submerged portions of dry caves, started an evolution that continues to this day. Many times the wet portions of caves were found far inside the dry cave, often through twisting and convoluted passages where moving with a tank on your back was impossible. Also, the redundancy required for cave diving requires the diver wear at least two complete life support systems, an even heavier and bulkier item to carry on your back. The solution was to carry the cylinders independently and to simply clip them to a light harness that the diver wears like a jacket. This also allows the diver the convenience of removing the tanks easily when he/she negotiates a restriction underwater. What we have seen is the evolution of side-mounting cylinders moving into the general open water population. Even PADI has a certi“ cation for it now. Now the diver can carry his cylinder, or cylinders, to the water independently instead of carrying it on his back while wearing the rest of his diving kit. Or someone on the boat can hand the cylinder(s) to you after you get in the water. If you have back pain, then side-mounted cylinders could make an otherwise painful or impossible activity completely painless and possible. The diver, assuming they use two cylinders (though not required), now has two completely independent and redundant systems which effectively doubles their bottom time and adds a considerable safety margin. There can be downsides to the side-mount dive system, especially for a new diver. An increase in task loading (more gas management), and some complications with diving from a boat are the two common concerns. Both issues can easily be dealt with by good training and proper equipment. When I learned of side-mount diving in 2007, we had two systems available on the U.S. retail market (that I was aware of): the Dive Rite Nomad and Golem Gear Armadillo. Now at least half a dozen companies produce them. Systems are even designed speci“ c to the traveling diver (with weight restrictions) and for the diver who wants to frequently switch between back-mount and side-mount con“ gurations. I jumped to side-mount, via a homemade rig in 2007. Since “ nishing my cave class in back-mount double cylinders, I have never been found with a cylinder on my back since. The last time I dove salt water (normally I am found in fresh water caves), I jumped in with a 3mm wetsuit, two aluminum 80-cubic foot cylinders, no lead weights, and minimal buoyancy compensator. The combination provided me with an amazingly free and comfortable diving experience. Increasingly, our diving paradigm is shifting. Next time you stand up and walk to the back of the boat, with a tank on your back, ask yourself what would make the experience better. Imagine a better way!

Laura Diane HopsonSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce deputies arrested a Crawfordville couple on felony drug charges Wednesday, June 13 after responding to a disturbance call at their home and discovering more than 100 grams of marijuana, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Bryan E. Hopson, 51, and Laura Diane Hopson, 57, were charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of narcotics equipment and battery in the case. Deputy Cole Wells and Lt. Jimmy Sessor responded to the disturbance call and while speaking to the couple Bryan Hopson reported that Laura had marijuana in her vehicle. Three large bags of marijuana were observed in plain view inside the vehicle. Two more bags of marijuana were located inside the home along with drug paraphernalia. The marijuana weighed 102.5 grams. Neither suspect claimed the marijuana but due to both of the suspects being aware of the narcotics they were both arrested. Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Office has made two arrests in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries reported over the past weekend, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Cody Eugene Guinn, 18, of Craw“ ordville and a 17year-old boy have been arrested on multiple counts of grand theft, burglary of a conveyance and petit theft in connection with at least seven vehicle burglaries reported in the Wakulla Gardens area and Songbird subdivision in Crawfordville from June 8 to June 10. Detectives received con“ dential information that Guinn and the juvenile were involved in the burglaries. The two were interviewed and allegedly admitted their involvement. They led the detectives to much of the stolen property. Guinn and the juvenile were arrested. The juvenile was released to a parent. Sheriff Crum stressed the importance of locking your vehicle while you are away from it and making sure all valuables are removed. Some of the stolen items that have been recovered include wallets, “ rearms, a compound bow, knives, CDs, sunglasses and a GPS unit. Continued from Page 6AFor the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you?Ž Huh,Ž I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you?Ž the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there,Ž I pleaded, who speaks English?Ž Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you?Ž So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department.Ž For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue “ rmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My dif“ culty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticksŽ does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.Ž (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.)

How to ruin a perfectly good dayContinued from Page 1A Once a charter and feasibility study is submitted, the Community and Military Affairs Subcommittee will review the study and proposed charter with various legislative committees and state agencies. If the local bill proposing the incorporation is “ led and referred, it will go before the Legislature for approval. If approved by the subcommittee, it will appear before the Florida Legislature to approve. Once the charter is approved, a referendum will go out to residents to approve the incorporation. A majority of residents must vote in favor of becoming incorporated for it to move forward, Dickson said. Dickson said the city would then enter into several local agreements with the county, similar to what Sopchoppy and St. Marks currently have with the county regarding “ re protection and public safety. Becoming incorporated will allow the city to get a lot accomplished, Dickson said. Panacea Waterfronts is also looking at creating a Community Redevelopment Agency to enhance and improve certain areas of the community. CRA projects are funded by tax increment financing; the value of real property is determined on a “ xed date and any increase in tax revenue after that date would be set aside for the CRA. The city and the county would collect the tax revenue on the original property value. Dickson said the county attorney is helping Panacea Waterfronts draft the CRA. A CRA was drafted at one time, but the boundaries were not well de“ ned and it needed to be re-written. Panacea must create an ordinance creating the CRA, an ordinance adopting the appointees to the CRA and a resolution implementing it, Dickson said. All must be approved by the Wakulla County Commission. The plan is to have the CRA on the 2013 tax roll, he said. Dickson said the committee is hoping both the CRA and incorporation come to fruition to be able to do more in the community. The two would go hand in hand, he said.Panacea looks at incorporating as a cityArrests for vehicle burglariesCouple arrested for narcotics Bryan E. Hopson Cody Eugene Guinn

& Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012Editors Note: This is a new column from the Wakulla County Historical Society that will focus on historical interests. By JOHN ROBERTS I think its proper in this, my initial contribution to The Wakulla News, to give the reader a sketch of my background. Since my retirement, initially not having much to keep me busy, and having been blessed with a good memory, I began to reduce many of those memories to writing. I did it primarily for the bene“ t of my children so that someday, if they should be interested, they would have easy access to what their daddy did way back then.Ž Since Florida license plates on our automobiles can be registered AntiqueŽ at only 30 years, I claim to easily be an antique by now having just passed the 70 year mark. So as I share my long ago memories with you folks, I feel con“ dent that much of what I write here classi“ es also as history. You know how up in Tallahassee, everywhere you scratch the ground, you observe that sticky red clay just beneath the top soil. That stuff sticks to your shoes. It stuck to mine, and I will tell you a little bit about where I left those red clay footprints. After graduating from Leon High school in 1960, I left home as an enlisted sailor in Uncle Sams Navy. I spent two years aboard a destroyer, the only real excitement being part of the Cuban Missile blockade in 1962. Uncle Sam did keep his promise to me to see at least a portion of the world. For a boy who had never been outside of Dixie, I got to see Italy, Spain, Greece, Malta, France, Trinidad, and Cuba. Looking back, that couple of years were among the best years of my life. Then to Florida State University and a bachelors degree in Criminology. In 1966, I hired on as a Special Agent, Naval Investigative Service (now the Naval Criminal Investigative Service). Although a civilian, I was posted to 15 of“ ces … 12 were in the U.S., and three were overseas (Philippines, Sardinia, and Cuba). I retired after 30 years service and am now working as a contract investigator. I am also now a proud member of the board of the Wakulla County Historical Society, and agreed to do this after being asked to do so by former longtime president, Mrs. Betty Green.

The requirement for the adoptees is to clean a minimum of four times per year, and communicate their cleanup estimates to KWCB each time. There are currently 40 roads adopted in the county, some are for two-mile stretches, others are four miles which equates to more than 82 miles of roads being voluntarily cleaned by adoptees. Ray Cade serves on the Board of Directors for KWCB and is the AdoptA-Road coordinator. He is someone who walks the walk by taking seriously his work with our organization and who was recently recognized for his participation in the state AdoptA-Highway program. He is the owner of Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers, and has done an outstanding job keeping his organizations section of highway litter free and goes above and beyond what the Adopt-A-Highway agreement requires. For example, the agreement requests that the group pick up litter a minimum of four times a year. Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers picks up litter on a regular basis; if the litter is out there, the group picks it up. Since January 2011, Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers has picked up 554 pounds of litter on Highway 319 in Wakulla County, logging more than 54 hours. The Chipley Five Counties project administers the Adopt-A-Highway program as part of the contract with the Florida Department of Transportations (FDOT) District Three. Annette Phillips, customer relations manager for Infrastructure, nominated Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers to receive an Adopt-A-Highway Appreciation Certi“ cate from FDOT. Ananth Prasad, FDOT secretary, approved and signed the certi“ cate, which was presented to Cade by Phillips at Keep Wakulla Beautifuls meeting for Outstanding Community Service in March. She also presented him with a Trans“ eld Services Compass Award for Customer Service. If you are interested in “ nding out more about the Keep Wakulla County Beautiful Adopt-A-Road program, we invite you to come out on Tuesday, June 26 at 6:30 p.m., at The 19th Hole at Wildwood Resort, Crawfordville Highway, for our Adopt-A-Road Appreciation event.

Staff ReportThis years Sopchoppy Fourth of July Celebration will feature musical acts ranging from the rock sounds of the Harvest Gypsies to the bluegrass music of Say On! and the gospel songs of the Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Quartet. Say On! … a musical duet composed of Neal Walker and Jeff Tilley … performs at 1 p.m. Walker and Tilley are devout, Bible-believing Christians and members of Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church. Walker hails from West Virginia where he was exposed at a very young age to “ rstand second-generation bluegrass music acts like the Stanleys, and Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys. Walker plays rhythm and some lead on a Martin D16 and sings a high-lonesome style of vocals that he heard while growing up, in the singing voices of the old-time singers of West Virginia. Tilley grew up in Owensboro, Ky., just 35 miles down the road from the Bill Monroes Rosine, Ky., home place. Tilley took up the “ ve-string banjo at the age of 14 and right away won a talent show in his local high school. Tilley handles lead work on the banjo and guitar and sings both lead and harmony back-up. Brook Sessions takes the stage at 2 p.m. An up and coming young artist, Brook Sessions blends the sounds of country, soul and rock. Though just 16, her powerful voice leaves her listeners amazed. The events on stage get underway at 12:30 p.m. with the Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Quartet. The Currys perform at 3 p.m. The Currys consist of brothers Jimmy and Tommy and cousin Galen, and are a home-grown acoustic folk trio born and bred in the Florida panhandle. Incorporating elements of country, bluegrass, blues, and rock, the Currys music showcases thoughtful songwriting, unassuming instrumentation, and melli” uous vocal harmonies. The Currys released their self-titled debut EP in April 2011, to wide critical acclaim. For more information, please visit galencurry. com or tommycurry.com. At 4:30 p.m., Steve Leslie will perform. A Grammywinning songwriter for the title cut to Ricky Skaggs 2004 Brand New Strings,Ž he was adjunct professor of Jazz History at Tallahassee Community College in 19911992. He currently teaches songwriting courses online via Skype, and mentors students privately in his home. As a recording artist, Steve has two albums available; In The Middle,Ž and Greater Gravity.Ž He has also written and produced a CD, with DVD, Beautiful Love,Ž with adult-contemporary artist Britt Lane. He currently lives in Nashville. The Hits and Grins Trio perform beginning at 6 p.m. This trio is made up of Steve Dean, Bill Whyte and Lisa Shaffer. A trio of talented writers/performers from Nashville who present an extremely entertaining evening filled with great stories, hit songs and comedy. Their songs have been recorded by George Strait, Alabama, Rhoda Vincent, Ray Stevens, Colt Ford, Reba McEntire, Cledus T. Judd and many others. At 7:30 p.m. the Harvest Gypsies will perform. They have been described as sounding like if Eric Clapton and Mark Knof” er went to a party and jammed all night with The Eagles, Steely Dan, Atlanta Rhythm Section, the Band, and The Grateful Dead and everybody loved it! www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 – Page 3BContinued from Page 1B It is safe to say that when Mrs. Green asks me to do something, I “ nd it dif“ cult to say no, and so here I am. I hope you all “ nd my writings entertaining and maybe in some cases, informative. I also hope all you readers will strongly consider becoming members of our Historical Society as we can surely use that support to collect and preserve the valuable history of our county before it is lost in the fog of time. THE WILD GOOSE Of all the sounds of the wild, my favorite is the plaintive call of the Canada goose. It ” oods my mind with warm memories of home. The call is first heard, almost imperceptibly, the memories are stirred, and as it grows louder, it draws your attention to the source, making it impossible to ignore as you look heavenward and see the ” ight of the majestic Canadian geese. If they are ” ying high to some distant destination, their VŽ shaped formation is nearly perfect, with the dominant goose in the lead. If ” ying low, their formation may be ragged and irregular and their calls more insistent and boisterous. In the 1930s, my mother, who was living at the St. Marks Lighthouse, was given the honor of banding the first Canada goose when the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge was created. And if you look closely at the signs marking the boundary to that refuge, and all other national wildlife refuges, I believe youll see a picture of the Canada goose prominently displayed. My daddy was unable to make a living and support his family the entire year with just his “ shing business at St. Marks. In the winter months, when “ shing was poor, he enclosed the sides of his 60-foot excursion boat, the Osprey, and used it for hunting the wild goose. He became a guide in the winter and took hunting parties of men, mostly from Georgia, Down EastŽ to goose hunt. I remember his fee was $100 a day, which back in those days, was pretty good income. Sometimes they would just stay on the Osprey and go inshore in small skiffs to hunt. The anchorage for the Osprey was right off Rock Island, about 20 miles or so east of the St. Marks Light. There were times though, when theyd pull Mr. O.P. Shields houseboat down there and anchor it up in Cow Creek, using it as their base camp. When school didnt interfere, my daddy would take me with him, and I loved those trips, especially when we stayed on the houseboat. What I remember most was those evenings after the men came in from the hunt. It was enjoyable for me to sit and listen to them laugh and talk, warm inside the Osprey as the cold wind whistled outside. Those were “ ne men and I know they must have enjoyed making me laugh with them at their stories. And I thought my daddy, who, after all was their guide, was king of the world. And always in the distance, the call of the wild goose.Roberts: Red clay footprints Entertainment set for Sopchoppy Fourth of July PERFORMERS: The Harvest Gypsies, above, will headline the show that includes singer Brook Sessions, above right, and The Currys, right.

Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 15 … Floridas voter registration purge headed to court this week as state and federal agencies traded lawsuits in the politically charged effort to remove ineligible voters from the critical swing states voter rolls. In contrast, U.S. and Florida environmental of“ cials appeared harmonious in their joint effort to restore portions of the Everglades after federal of“ cials signed off on a revised plan to clean up water entering the region by reducing phosphorus levels and restoring ” ow. Meanwhile, a task force set up following the death of Trayvon Martin took testimony from his parents and others as they met near Sanford for the “ rst of a series of public hearings over the states Stand Your GroundŽ self-defense law that has come under “ re following the death of the unarmed 17-year-old earlier this year. Citizens Property Insurance Corp. this week tapped a private sector executive to become its CEO as board members continue to push to downsize the statebacked insurer, which now handles nearly 1.5 million policies. In election news this week, legislative leaders weighed in on a number of fronts including a state Senate race in which a candidate saddled with ethics baggage stepped aside. And finally, Gov. Rick Scott this week recounted his own voting rights issues when, in 2006, he was informed that he was indeed, not dead. VOTER ROLL ISSUE HEADS TO COURTS Following weeks of bluster, Florida elections of“ cials this week sued the federal government to gain access to a Department of Homeland Security database they say is critical for state efforts to purge ineligible voters from the rolls. The Department of Justice returned the favor by “ ling a federal lawsuit of its own, saying state efforts to remove voters from the rolls violates the National Voter Registration Act, which, among other things, prohibits the last-minute cleansing of voting rolls. The controversy stems from the state Division of Elections earlier this year sending a list of about 2,600 names of potentially illegal voters to local supervisors of elections. The division used what it has acknowledged was an imperfect list put together from a state Highway Safety database of people who had a certain degree of likelihood to be in the country illegally. Secretary of State Ken Detzner “ led his lawsuit in the District of Columbia to force the federal agency to share citizenship information. Detzner said the state has been trying for nearly a year to gain access to DHSs Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements Program (SAVE) database, which tracks citizenship and alien status. In response, U.S. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez said Florida is not complying with federal laws aimed at protecting the ability of eligible U.S. citizens to register to vote and maintain their voter registration status. A day later, the feds “ led suit in federal court in Tallahassee. Gov. Rick Scott has been spearheading efforts to purge the rolls. This week the governor said he had his own run-in with election of“ cials. In 2006, Scott, whose middle name is Lynn, got mixed up with a Richard E. Scott, a recently deceased Florida voter who happened to have the exact same birthday, 12-1-1952, as the governor. I had to vote provisionally because they said Id passed away,Ž Scott said. So I said, Im here, heres my drivers license, Im really alive. And so they allowed me to vote provisionally. And then they went back and checked and said I was alive.Ž TASK FORCE KICKS OFF STAND YOUR GROUND HEARINGS The “ rst public hearing of Scotts Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection offered a wide range of opinion on the Stand Your GroundŽ law in Seminole County, where Martin was killed after an altercation with George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who now faces second degree murder charges. Among the nearly 100 people who turned out to speak were supporters of the statute on one side, and Martins parents on the other. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, the panels chairwoman, said the charge of the task force is not to debate Martins death but look at the state statute that allows residents to use force when they fear great bodily harm. But Carroll said the “ rst public hearing was held in Longwood, near where Martin was killed, to give its community members some closureŽ on the shooting death that has roiled the state and nation. National outrage over the lack of an arrest in the shooting prompted Scott to create the task force and to name Jacksonville State Attorney Angela Corey the special prosecutor in Martins case. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, parents of the unarmed black teen who was killed less than four months ago, didnt necessarily call for the laws repeal. Fulton pleaded with the panel to at least look atŽ the law in light of her sons death. The couple also delivered 375,000 online petitions collected by Second Chance on Shoot First, a national campaign. EPA OKS REVISED EVERGLADES PLAN Environmental Protection Agency of“ cials this week told Florida that a revised state plan to improve water quality in the Everglades meets with Washingtons approval, and said it may meet a federal judges order to clean up the ecosystem. The plan was “ rst submitted by Scott Administration of“ cials to Washington in October. A revised proposal was submitted earlier this month after the EPA raised objections to the initial plan. In the end, of“ cials said the technical plan was arrived at after extensive back-and-forth between Washington and Tallahassee. The state is under a federal court order to clean up the Everglades, following a lawsuit that resulted in a 2008 order by U.S. District Judge Alan Gold to boost cleanup efforts. GILWAY IN, NORMAN OUT Citizens Property Insurance Corp. board members on Wednesday tapped Barry Gilway, president and CEO of Mattei Insurance Services, a Seattle-based commercial insurance company, to take over Citizens, which now handles nearly 1.5 million policies and faces more than $500 billion in potential risk. While Gilway stepped in, Sen. Jim Norman, R-Tampa, stepped out. Norman announced he would not seek another term in the Florida Senate without explanation, but he faced a Senate ethics vote and ethics charges for failing to disclose the gift of a half-million dollar home to his wife. Norman, R-Tampa, admits he failed to disclose the gift when he ran for the Senate in 2010, but his lawyer argues it was simply a mistake. STORY OF THE WEEK: Floridas recent effort to purge its voter rolls headed to court this week as Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner and the Obama administration sued each other. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: So I said, Im here, heres my drivers license, Im really alive. And so they allowed me to vote provisionally. And then they went back and checked and said I was alive.Ž … Gov. Rick Scott on being told in 2006 that he had to cast a provisional ballot because he was, according to incorrect election of“ ce records, dead. WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Gov. Scott is alive and well and able to vote Join The Nature Conservancy to plant a billion trees, one tree at a time, in the ght to end climate change at plantabillion.org By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 18 – Combatants in a decades-long water war pitting competing interests from Apalachicola to Atlanta may learn this week whether their battle piques the interest of the nation’s highest court. The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to meet Thursday to decide if it wants to wade into a tri-state, cross border feud over water ow in the Apalachicola-ChattahoocheeFlint River basin, an interconnected system linking Lake Lanier north of Atlanta to the Florida gulf coast. The high court is scheduled to decide whether to take up a dispute between Alabama, Georgia and Florida over who gets to decide where the water goes from the dammed lake under a series of agreements originally penned between federal of cials and the states more than 50 years ago. The issue has been embroiled in lawsuits off and on since 1990. The ght targets the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ control over the Buford Dam, which not only holds back the water that is now Lake Lanier but determines the water ow to the river systems farther south. Metropolitan Atlanta, which draws water from Lake Lanier, has seen its population swell from under 1 million in 1960 to 5.8 million today. Georgia argues the water needs of the teeming city outweigh the minimum ow requirements.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThis time last year, the countys auditor appeared before the Wakulla County Commission with an audit report for 2009-10 that declared the county on the verge of a nancial emergency. What a difference a year makes. This year, at the June 18 commission meeting, Richard Powell, CPA, said the county was not experiencing deteriorating nancial conditions at the end of 2011 and needed to continue its present course of action with increasing its reserves. Powell said it was clear there was a big turn around from 2009-10 to scal year 2010-11. You stopped a decline that wasnt being stopped, Powell said. Last year, Powell told the commission that if funds from the jail bed revenue had not been moved, the county would have been classi ed as in a state of nancial emergency. He also told the commission that in several areas there was an excess of expenditures and the county spent $1.6 million more than it received. The reason was a combination of using the fund balance to balance the budget, not collecting revenues expected and not making adjustments. The countys reserve fund was in bad shape for two consecutive years, he said. Youve reversed the trend, he said. The countys reserves have doubled, he said. The county should have three months worth of reserves, which would be about $4.9 million. The county currently has $1.8 million, according to Deputy Clerk Greg James. County Administrator David Edwards said the county plans to collect the proper amount over the next 5 years. So we can have a good, solid, stable government, Edwards said. Commissioner Jerry Moore questioned how the county got to this position, wondering if it was a result of departments cutting costs or the commission raising taxes. Commissioner Randy Merritt said no one was happy about having to do what needed to be done. This included increasing the Communications Services Tax and re assessment and implementing the Public Service Tax and solid waste assessment. We just did what we had to do, Merritt said. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the county decreased its total expenses by $2 million. Thats a result of us buckling down, he said.Continued on Page 3A Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 24th Issue Thursday, June 21, 2012 Three Sections Three Sections75 Cents 75 Cents kll h h h h k l l h Published Weekly, Read Daily Published Weekly, Read DailynewsThe WakullaThe Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 6A Community .....................................................................Page 7A School .............................................................................Page 8A Sports .............................................................................Page 9A Outdoors ......................................................................Page 10A Water Ways.....................................................................Page 11A Sheriffs Report.............................. ...............................Page 13A Arts & Entertainment .......................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 7B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 7BINDEX OBITUARIES Dorothy Ethel Bull Robert Mickey WyantMike Scott seeks another term on Wakulla school boardBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netMike Scott is seeking re-election to the Wakulla County School Board, District 2. In seeking election to the school board 16 years ago, I made a commitment to the citizens of Wakulla County that I would provide sound leadership, be actively involved in the district, pursue ways to draw involvement from parents and the community into the educational process of all students and always make sure that the educational needs and advancements are the highest priority in the district, Scott said. It has been an honor and privilege to serve with a school board and administration that is sincerely committed to the success of all students and believes that success begins with great teachers and staff, he said. Scott is being challenged by teacher Melisa Taylor for the seat. Since the race is non-partisan, the election will be held and decided in the Aug. 14 primary. Among the achievements of the school district that Scott is proud of during his tenure on the board: Wakulla has been named an Academically High-Performing District for four consecutive years by the state Department of Education. The distinction is based on maintaining excellent academic achievement, meeting the class size reduction requirements and having a superior nancial audit. Wakulla has earned enough points to be graded an A district for six consecutive years. This ranked Wakulla in the top 10 of all Florida school districts. Wakulla High Schools graduation rate was 88 percent, higher than the state average of 80 percent, and ranking Wakulla 11th in the state. For 2012, Wakullas third grade students tied for first in the region and fth in the state for FCAT reading, 60 percent of Wakullas 10th graders scored pro cient in reading, coming in sixth in the state, while 57 percent of ninth graders scored proficient in reading, 10th highest in the state. The Advanced Placement program offers 14 different courses, which is extraordinary for a small, rural district. In 2001, 26 students were enrolled in AP classes. Current scheduling show more than 500 student requests for one or more of the 14 AP courses being offered at Wakulla High School. Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) supports student success in Honors, Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment classes. Wakulla implemented AVID in 2009-10 with 75 students in grades eight and nine. In 2011-12, the program has 175 students in grades eight through 11. The High School Medical Academy started five years ago with 189 students. In the 2012-13 school year, there will be more than 200 students. An average of 30 seniors graduate each year with a Certified Nursing Assistant certi cation. There will be an Engineering Academy for the 2012-13 school year. A gifted and talented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program is offered through the Panhandle Area Education Consortium with many hands-on activities and eld trips.Continued on Page 3A By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews,netThe idea of the community of Panacea becoming incorporated has been discussed for years and is nally starting to take shape. Over the years, it has been discussed and now were trying to move forward, said Sherrie Miller, member of Panacea Waterfronts Florida Partnership Committee, the group behind the push. It just makes sense to move in that direction, she added. The community is already well organized and citizens are heavily involved, thanks to Panacea Waterfronts and other committees. Panacea Waterfronts Chairman Walt Dickson said they performed an informal survey of residents in the area who seemed in favor of incorporating Panacea. If we were incorporated, it would give us the legal entity to work with the county and get a lot of things done, Dickson said. Panacea Waterfronts does a lot around the county, but is limited by its small budget. The first step in the process is to develop a charter, which is basically a constitution for the local government. It would set the boundaries of the municipality, its form of government, size and makeup of its commission and certain governmental processes. The charter is the easy part, Dickson said. They are looking to other cities as models, like the one created for Cedar Key. The dif cult, or more expensive part, is the feasibility study, which will determine if it is even feasible for Panacea to move forward, Miller said. The feasibility study will determine how the city would run, including how it would provide fire protection and public safety and how revenue would be generated, Dick son said. Before now, the cheapest estimate they were given for the study was anywhere between $20,000 and $25,000. But after attending the Waterfronts Florida Program Managers Meeting in Crystal River recently, they found two University of Florida law professors who agreed to perform the study, with their help of their law students, for $5,000. The study will begin this summer, Miller said. Panacea Waterfronts will pay for the study from money raised through the Rock the Dock shing tournament held recently. The only way a municipality can become incorporated is for the Legislature to adopt the charter for incorporation by a special act upon determination that the standards in Florida Statutes have been met, according to the Florida House of Representatives Local Government Formation Manual. Once the feasibility study and charter are complete, Panacea must submit it to the legislature by the rst week in December, Dickson said. A proposed special act is led by a member of the Legislature in the form of a local bill. Rep. Leonard Bembry has agreed to le the bill, Dickson said.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com I was born April 25, 1936 in Dickson, a little town in eastern Iowa. My parents Harold and Lily Mae Blanchard both were school teachers. My father accepted the position of School Superintendent in Welton, Iowa, population 101, where I attended school through the 8th grade, a class of 13 students. It was the consolidated school, with kindergarten through 12th grade. Nowadays the old school is gone; they made a re station out of it. My brothers Tom and Mike were born in Welton. When I was in the 9th grade we moved to Clinton, Iowa, where I attended Clinton High. When I got out of high school I didnt have a clue what I wanted to do, but with both parents, two aunts and a grandmother all teachers, I did know I didnt want to be a teacher! I went to the University of Iowa for a year, more or less to satisfy my folks who demanded that I have a college education, but I learned so much that rst year that I didnt see any need to go back. I then spent ve years getting married, having two kids and learning that there was more to college than I had been able to grasp in that rst year. I came to know what it was I wanted to do. I went to the University of Missouri for another three years and graduated with a degree in Wildlife Management. I have not been in the military. One thing about having that ve-year split in my education was that I had two kids, and at the time they didnt take people who had children, so I missed out on the Viet Nam War and after that there wasnt a draft. I thought at one time that I had really missed out on a lot by not going into the service; but on the other hand, in those ve years between schools I learned so much that it probably offset anything that I could have picked up in the military. I got exposed to a lot of different jobs in that ve years and it has really come in handy. In sixth grade I had acute nephritis and had to be in the hospital for a few days. One day the nurse came by and said, You di dnt eat your toast. I said, I didnt have a knife to butter it. She said, You know, if you didnt have a knife you could alwa ys use the back of a fork or spoon and go ahead and butter your bread. That probably did more for me in the way of common sense in my whole life than anything else anybody could ever say. You know, if youve got a problem, somewhere along the line you can gure out the answer to it. My career with the State of Florida began in 1963 when I was hired by the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission as Regional Fisheries Biologist for northwest Florida. I was in that position from 1963 until 1970 when I was hired as the rst staff director of the House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee. I then moved back with Game and Fish as Chief of Fisheries Management and was there until 1971 when I was hired by the Department of Transportation as their legislative lobbyist. I remained with the Department of Transportation for ten years and then was hired by the Department of Revenue to head up some of their departments. During the time that I was with the Department of Revenue I received permission and ran for County Commissioner and was elected in Wakulla County. I continued to work for the Department of Revenue and was contacted one morning by the sheriff who said he would like to talk with me. His emergency management director had apparently resigned, and so negotiations continued and I accepted the job with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Department as Wakulla Countys Emergency Management Director. I remained in that position for about eight years. Then the County Commission called upon me to come in and ll on an interim basis the position of County Manager. During this time I had planned retirement and even though they would have liked to extend my time there, I went ahead with retirement. Shortly before I retired I had been contacted by Crowder Excavating and they indicated that I had passed the word along that Id be interested in some part time work. So in talking with them it was decided that I would go to work for Crowder Disaster Recovery and soon afterwards was asked to take over as director of that division where I remained for about four years. In my life of public service I feel like Ive accomplished some important things and maybe some that werent that important. But there are several that Id like to bring back and tell about. One was during the huge sh kills on Escambia Bay in Pensacola. All of a sudden they had begun to have massive die-offs of sh in Escambia Bay. Tests that we took indicated that there was a tremendous amount of nitrogen being discharged into the bay. This was brought before the Escambia County Commission and despite concerns about the possible loss of jobs, the Escambia County Commission backed by the Santa Rosa County Commission made a decision that they were going after the big companies that surrounded Escambia Bay and clean it up. They hired a feisty young lawyer by the name of Larry Hips and an excellent writer with the Pensacola News by the name of Mike Albertson. We began to take on the big companies that surrounded the bay. At rst we met with a lot of resistance but we stuck at it. Gradually the companies began to see the need for change and they installed equipment for abatement of the materials that were going into Escambia Bay. Today the bay is pretty clean, and sh kills have stopped. I consider it one of the big successes that a very brave Escambia County Commission backed by Santa Rosa is what really saved that bay. At the same time that we were doing this with Escambia Bay, we also took on Eleven Mile Creek. Our test gauges showed that sh placed in test cages in Eleven Mile Creek did not live longer than a minute and twenty four seconds. So the company consented and has installed pollution abatement and the conditions in Eleven Mile Creek have improved dramatically. The other one that I look at is Little River that comes from Georgia through Gadsden County and into Lake Talquin. At times they would have sh kills that started way up in Georgia and would wipe out the total population of Little River all the way to Lake Talquin. We worked with the company. Of course every one of them hates to spend the money that it takes to prevent this from happening, but that company was very cooperative. They worked hard and installed the necessary equipment. The sh kills have stopped and Little River is now clean and very shable. Ive never been an outward communication religious man, but have always had a strong belief in the Lord and His power. My comm unications with God have been in the duck blind, deer stand, shing boat and on the golf course. Some communication was about me, some was about the Lord. Many people have said that their prayers are with me, and I can actually feel those prayers. I always had considered the traditional burial, but then after several people had indicated that they would like to have a piece of my ash, cremation was the only way to satisfy those. I am survived by my loving wife of fourteen wonderful years, Regina; my brother Tom and his wife Dawn of Jefferson City, Missouri, their two children Matt and Ginny; my brother Mike and his wife Deb of Eau Claire, Wisconsin and their daughter Lindsey; two children, Terry Blanchard (Flo) and Debra Lee, both of Tallahassee; two stepdaughters, Mardi Scott of Tarpon Springs and Michelle Siviter (Robert) of St. Petersburg; three grandchildren, Nick, Adam a nd Ronnie, all of Tallahassee; Nicks wife Felicity, great grandson Jackson, and many close friends, far too many to name, but I must name two: Joel Castro, who must have been sent by God to help me through this; and Donny Crum. Donny Crum has been like a brother to me for nearly twenty years. Weve been friends, weve been huntin buddies, weve done shing, weve gone a number of places from Texas to Saskatchewan and spent numerous nights waiting for storms to possibly come ashore in Wakulla County, whether to evacua te or not evacuate. Donny has always been there and as far as Im concerned hes one of the greatest men that I have ever known. I am thankful to have met and been associated with so many ne people in my lifetime, and I have appreciated their prayers.

Continued from Page 3A The Career and Technical Education (CTE) offers programs in Culinary, Carpentry, Accounting, Web Design, TV Production, Medical Academy, Engineering and more as a dual-enrolled student at Lively Technical Center. Scott says the district still faces tough challenges because of continuing legislative mandates and ongoing reduction in education funding. Employees havent had a payraise in years, only one-time bonuses, he noted, but the school board and administration have tried to offset that by absorbing insurance costs and avoiding lay-offs. This year, he said, it looks like some insurance bene ts will be cut. But no lay-offs, he said. Thats our biggest thing. This school board and administration have been weathering a dif cult economic storm over the past three years, but have always stayed focused with the priority of making sure the academic success is maintained, continuing to reward our great teachers as education funding allows and hold employees harmless with increases in medical insurance and maintaining jobs, he said. I believe we have successfully done this with our budget process from sound decisions, experience and recommendations from a highly quali ed administration and staff. One big success Scott points to is the construction of more than $46 million in new educational facilities in the district over the past 12 years at a cost of $9.2 million to local taxpayers. We are educating 100 percent of our students in state-of-the-art, brick-andmortar facilities and not in portable classrooms, he said. I believe this speaks volumes to the vision and experience of this school board and I have been honored that the citizens of Wakulla County have allowed me to be a part of this success for 16 years. Scott is a lifelong resident of Wakulla County, married to the former Nikki Sanders for 24 years. Both are graduates of Wakulla High School. They have two children: daughter Corban is an 11th grader at Wakulla High School, and son Connor is a seventh grader at Riversprings Middle School.Scott seeks re-election to Wakulla school boardContinued from Page 1AIssues that were addressed last year have been improve, but hadnt been fully corrected at the time of the audit, Powell said. These included purchase orders being issued after the fact, SHIP grant documentation being hard to track and grant reports being hard to reconcile. He recommended having one person be in charge of the timeline for grants. There were no new reportable ndings this time, he said. Falling in line with the budget, an item to establish a fund balance policy was brought forward at the meeting. The policy states that the general fund, special revenue funds and enterprise funds should have three months or 25 percent of operating revenues set aside. The capital project funds should have the scal year end fund balance and estimated revenues for the ensuing scal year to meet all outstanding expenditures. It sets forth a road map, said Deputy Administrator Tim Barden. This policy was approved by the clerks office and audit committee, Barden said. Merritt said this would prevent de cit spending. Stewart thanked staff, the clerks of ce and audit committee for planning ahead and working together. So we arent operating in a knee jerk anymore, Stewart said. The commission voted unanimously to approve the fund balance policy.Audit report shows major improvement By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe rst meeting of the Community Center Advisory Committee was held on June 11 and the consensus among the members was that there was a need for direction from the Wakulla County Commission. We need to know what our charge is today, said Committee Member Steve Brown. Brown said some of the duties, responsibilities and objectives have already been completed. Nothing like a sense of the history to plan for the future, Brown said. The county acquired the 22-acre property that was previously home to New Life Church on May 24, 2010, but has yet to offer programs and services at the facility. The county received a legislative appropriation for $392,000 for the community center. Not until after buying the current community center did they nd out they couldnt use this funds to purchase an existing building. The money can be used on remodeling and additions. Currently, the county is nalizing renovation plans for the center, as well as entering into an agreement with Capital Area YMCA to operate within one of the buildings of the community center and manage that facility. The county sent out a request for proposals last year for an organization to run the center at no cost to the county and received one response, which was from the YMCA. Other groups and organizations will be able to use the facilities as well. We have the legislative appropriation, but we dont have money for operations, said County Commissioner Lynn Artz. In the current design plans, what used to be the sanctuary would be utilized by the YMCA and would be renovated to have a free weight and cardio room, tness class room, kid zone and restrooms and showers. The other building would remain as it is, with several of ces. Also include in the plans is the addition of an open oor gymnasium. The purpose of the committee, as set by the Wakulla County Commission, is to provide guidance regarding the development of the Community Center site and programming, including planning activities, programs and services, seeking grant funding, obtaining community input and involvement, and to assist in developing a long-term plan for the Community Center. The committee members are Brown, Senior Center Director R.H. Carter, retired art teacher Diane Perez, School Board appointee Louis Hernandez, YMCA representative Ken Franklin, WHS Assistant Principal Simeon Nelson, School Resource Of- ce Billy Jones, Sopchoppy City Commissioner Aginita Rosier, Charlotte Cobb, Bill Versiga and Natalie Crum. Artz said she hopes this group will help shepherd this idea forward and help with fundraising and spreading the word, as well as future plans for the site. The committee members agreed that they need to see the site plan design for the Community Center, take a tour of the site and the results from the citizen survey about what they would like to see at the center. They also wanted to review the request for proposals for the design and the memorandum of understanding with the YMCA, once those are complete. County Administrator David Edwards said the county plans to send out the RFP within the next month. We want to be operational in January 2013, Artz said. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCOAST Charter School Principal Alyssa Higgins appeared before the St. Marks City Commission at its meeting on June 14 to update the city on the schools hope to eventually build an addition. The project is still in the preliminary stages, Higgins said. The addition would allow the school to have 50 more students. Enrollment is currently at 130 students and Higgins said she would like to get to 136 before they start building. We have the need for it academically, but the numbers arent there, Higgins said. COAST is housed at the old St. Marks Community Center, which is city property. Higgins said the building will be an additional building and not a portable classroom. It will also be designed to look like the existing building. It will be paid for through capital outlay funds from the federal government, she said. The city commission seemed responsive to the idea, but wanted speci c site plans for the addition. In other news: The commission approved a resolution to prohibit the display of reworks on public property on the Fourth of July. Attorney Rhonda DiVagno Morris of the citys law rm said the city might run into a problem and this is a way for the sheriffs of ce to enforce it. If the city wants something more permanent, she suggested creating an ordinance. City Manager Zoe Mans eld asked the commission to increase her spending limit. Currently, she can spend under $500 without having to come to the board for approval. She said that has been in place for 40 years and costs have gone up. Commissioner Phil Cantner suggested tripling it to $1,500. Commissioner Allen Hobbs countered with $750. They voted unanimously to raise it to $750. The commission set a special called meeting for June 25 at 2 p.m. to open the bids for the streetscape improvement project funded by a Community Development Block Grant for $600,000. They also set a meeting for June 28 at 1:30 p.m. to award the winning bid. The design includes the addition of a sidewalk on both sides of Port Leon Drive from Pine Street to Riverside Drive. At the end of Riverside Drive, there will be an imprint of a lighthouse in the center of the road and lighting and landscaping improvements, which includes a 4-foot median in certain points of the road, which would have flowers and other plants to help with the beauti cation of the road.CITY OF ST.

Editor, The News: I am voting for Mrs. Melisa Taylor in the election for school board, District 2. I am going into my senior year of college at FSU and have had many different professors and teachers assistants but still consider Mrs. Taylor to be the best teacher I have ever had. To this day I think her class has helped me more than any other. She taught me how to organize and coherently express my thoughts, a skill not many guys have (especially a high school football player). The reason Mrs. Taylor was such a great teacher was not because of her curriculum but because she cared so much; she cared about my education far more than I did at the time. Mrs. Taylor has had an enormous and priceless impact on my life and I will always be thankful to her. Mrs. Taylor is more than a teacher, she knows how to better educate students and give them the motivation to care about their own education. Mrs. Taylor changes students lives. Stuart Brimner ssb09@myfsu.edu Editor, The News: I just wanted to take the time to write this letter to say thank you to Mr. Bobby Pearce for taking time out of his busy day to come and speak to Boy Scout Troop 126 regarding the political process and eld some tough questions from our boy scouts and their leaders. Boy Scout Troop 126 meets every Wednesday at 7 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 3251 Crawfordville Hwy. Boy Scouts include Mathias Gunnarsson, Maxamillion Hollett, Nickolas Hollett, Ryan Willis, Patton Willis, Colby Caplinger, Andrew Annand, Aaron Wiggins, Timithy Ketchem, Kevin Ketchem. Scout Masters are John S. Morgan Jr. and Benny Wiggins. Brent R. TuckerPresident, Crawfordville BranchThe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Editor, The News: I saw the article about the plan to ask us to pay an assessment fee yearly of $200 to pave our county roads in Wakulla Gardens (Wakulla Gardens residents face pay for paving, front page, May 24). I do not understand why this is necessary when every home in here paid building permit fees and pays property taxes. That money is what should be paying for the paving where did all of that money go? I do not know of anywhere else where residents are asked to pay above and beyond the property taxes to the county for paving of county neighborhood roads. If there is no money for this, then I say there should be an audit done of the countys books as to where that money was spent. When they were approving these houses to be built they knew they would need to pave the roads so they should have put aside into a fund to pay for this in the future. Barbara Whiddon Crawfordville Editor, The News: Kudos to U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle for blocking much of House Bill 1355 commonly referred to as the Voter Suppression Act. This new law passed by the Florida Legislature cut in half the number of days Early Voting can take place in Florida counties, implemented a 48-hour deadline for the return of voter registration forms to the Supervisor of Elections Of ce and instituted nes and punishment for those who did not meet the laws new requirements. Judge Hinkle wrote The statute and rule impose a harsh and impractical 48hour deadline for an organization to deliver applications to a voter registration of ce and effectively prohibit an organization from mailing applications in. And the statute and rule impose burdensome record-keeping and reporting requirements that serve little if any purpose, thus rendering them unconstitutional even to the extent they do not violate the NVRA (National Voting Rights Act). I hope that because of Judge Hinkles ruling, Santa Rosa County school teacher Dawn Quarles gets a reprieve on the $1,000 ne she faces for failing to get her voter registration applications into the elections of ce on time. In an effort to teach her students about government and voting she had her students register to vote. She failed to get the new certi cation required by the state to register voters and waited beyond the 48 hour period to turn the forms in and faces a huge ne. Everyone who is eligible should register to vote. It is simple process only taking minutes to complete, and the courteous and able staff at the Supervisor of Elections Of ce will be happy to assist you with this process. But do it now. The voter registration deadline for the primary election is on July 16. The registration deadline for Novembers General Election is Oct. 9. Be sure to bring your ID. The best ID to possess is a Florida Drivers License, second best is a Florida ID Card. If you do not have either of those the last 4 digits of your Social Security card will work though may delay the process.. After you are registered, become a knowledgeable voter. Instead of relying on name recognition based on the number of signs you see, or the negative ads run that we will be bombarded by for the next several months, go to political forums where candidates speak and answer questions. Do some research on where they stand on issues important to you, and talk to them. They want to hear from voters and are more accessible than you might think. At least two candidate forums for local races will be held in July and there will probably be others. Candidates for Superintendent of Schools have been invited to a forum at the New Bridge Missionary Baptist Church (across from Macks Country Meats) at 7 p.m. on July 10 and candidates for Sheriff are invited to a forum at the church at 7 p.m. on July 17. The Primary Election occurs on Tuesday, Aug. 14. Our candidates for U.S. Senate, Congress, and State Representative will be determined in the primary election. The primary will elect our local School Board and Soil & Water Conservation Board members. The good news is that Wakulla County has a history of strong voter turnout. All registered voters can go to the polls on Aug. 14 and on Nov. 6 to cast their votes for local, state and federal offices and express their opinion on the numerous amendments to our State Constitution. But you dont have to wait until Election Day. Early voting begins on the second Saturday before each election allowing voters eight days to cast their vote at the Supervisor of Elections Of ce including Saturdays (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and on Sunday, Aug. 5 and Nov. 3, from 1 to 7 p.m. But if you are like me, dont wait for Early Voting. Sign up for an Absentee Ballot. Also known as Vote by Mail, all registered voters can sign up for this voting method. If you sign up for vote by mail, ballots will be mailed to your address beginning July 10 for the primary election and Oct. 2 for the General Election. This allows you, the voter, over a month to consider your choices. You can sit down in your own home, and mark your ballot, no standing in line, no worrying about whether you brought the right ID card to the polls, and if you get to a race or issue that you are unfamiliar with it gives you a chance to do some research by calling a friend or looking it up on the internet. When you get to the 11 constitutional amendments on the ballot you will really appreciate this extra time! You can turn in your ballot by mail at any time up to Election Day or turn it in by hand up to the Supervisor of Elections Of ce up to 7 p.m. on Election Day. This fall be a good citizen and vote! Doug Jones Crawfordville Editor, The News: Two weeks ago Brandon Larrabee of the News Service of Florida wrote in The Wakulla News what I thought was a rather snotty remark about Ken Detzners mandate to assure that voter registration roles are legal (Weekly Roundup, Should I stay or should I go?, June 7). To quote Larrabee, the people who will decide those races are voters at least those who are left if and when Secretary of State Ken Detzner and the Supervisors of Elections nish clearing off what they say are ineligible voters. Even if the approximately 2,600 voters on the list were all deemed ineligible it would hardly leave Florida without legal voters. The more serious question is neither a State of Florida question nor a question of party af liation. The question is, why is Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice so eager to sue states that are attempting to make their voter roles legitimate? Florida is not the rst state that the Justice Department has gone after for wanting to right wrongs. Texas and South Carolina, as well as others, have also felt the long arm of Eric Holder on voter ID and voter rights issues. Although he dismissed a Pennsylvania voter intimidation lawsuit that was actually brought to him. The Florida Secretary of State said, After nearly a year of requests to The Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, the federal government has shown no signs of meeting their legal requirements to provide access. In other words the question of eligibility could easily be established in many cases should this database, which Florida is entitled to, be provided. The Department of Homeland Security however has stonewalled the request and now claims that federal law does not allow for voters to be removed from voter lists within 90 days of an election (the primary is Aug. 14). Of course the federal government would like all states to allow people to be able to register at the time of voting and without ID. None of this makes sense. People would like to use the argument that the Democrats want no one to be disenfranchised while the Republicans would like to see everyone not of their party disenfranchised. This is absolutely crazy. The Justice Department criticizes Florida for wanting to verify voter roles by removing deceased, illegal, and ineligible voters! The DOJ is not claiming that anyone has been mistakenly removed from any one of these groups but rather that they might be. So why will they not help the state certify their voter roles and reduce the chance of error? The federal government has the information that Florida needs. What ever happened to people working together to insure that what we do as citizens of the United States is legal, fair and as unflawed as possible? Disenfranchisement works both ways. If someone is allowed to vote who is not leg al that then negates the vote of someone who does have the legal right. Eric Holder claims that there is no indication of serious voter fraud in the United States and that it is not a valid issue. So he would rather take the time and money to sue a state that could prove him right? Or perhaps there is more opportunity for voter fraud then he would like to admit. James OKeefe, an investigative reporter, sent one of his associates into Eric Holders voting district in the Washington, D.C. April election. The associate requested a voter ballot in the name of Eric Holder and he was given the ballot. The associate was young and Caucasian and certainly did not t the description of our attorney general. Americans take the right to vote seriously. Our tendency as a people is to make sure no one is denied the right to vote. Much is done to err on the side of the voter. In a mobile society such as ours, everyone has access to the technology, transportation and communication systems necessary to establish voter eligibility. Some states will even pay for a person to get the necessary ID. But when Florida wants to correct wrongs it is criticized and condemned as wanting to disenfranchise a voter. The federal government frets that Florida is politicizing a persons right to vote at the time of a national election (although the process started many, many months ago). After the election of 2000 I cannot think of a better time to make sure that we are getting it right. Holder and the Department of Justice needs to work with us to assure that each ballot cast by a legal voter counts.

Coley appeared at the school board meeting on Monday, June 18. Coley, R-Marianna, has represented Wakulla for the past seven years. But redistricting has shifted the boundaries of the district and no longer includes Wakulla. Coley told the school board that, as an educator and English teacher, she has been proud of the accomplishments of Wakulla schools. The tribute presented to the school board reads: Whereas, the Wakulla County School District is considered a leader in education by earning a district grade of A from the Department of Education based on total points derived from FCAT scores, and Whereas the accomplishments of the Wakulla County School District in 2011 are numerous and were accomplished by the students, the students parents, the Wakulla County School District faculty, the Wakulla County School Board, and the Wakulla County Superintendent of Schools, now therefore Be it respectfully presented that the Wakulla County School District and all of its schools are recognized for their many impressive accomplishments. It was signed by Rep. Coley. Thank you for letting me represent you for the past seven years, Coley said. In other matters before the school board, a grant application was approved to be submitted for a $50,000 state grant to help renovations to the historic Sopchoppy High School.

Marti Coley presents a tribute to the school board and Superintendent Miller.Leon Countys Lake Jackson is drying up. As a result of persistent drought, the 4,000-acre lake north of Tallahassee is reduced to several isolated pools. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is suspending some shing regulations to allow anglers to take some of the sh that remain, especially those that are stressed or trapped in shallow areas. Previously, largemouth bass had to be 18 inches before shermen could keep them, but beginning today, anglers can keep ve largemouth bass, regardless of size, and their daily bag limit of bream (50) and crappie (25). There is no bag limit on cat sh. In addition to legal shing methods, anglers may take sh by dip net and by hand from Lake Jackson. Cast nets are prohibited. Lake Jackson and other area lakes sit atop a geographic feature called a karst formation. Water ows far below ground in limestone caverns and passageways toward the Gulf of Mexico. In times of drought, water drains down the sinks to the aquifer. When normal rainfall returns, the lake re lls. All regulations pertaining to turtles, or their take, remain in effect. The take or possession of softshell turtles is prohibited from May 1 through July 21. Also, people cannot possess Florida cooters and snapping turtles. Only foot traffic is allowed on the lake bottom. Under county law, ATV and vehicle traf c is prohibited.

ObituariesChurch BriefsDorothy Ethel Bull Robert Mickey Wyant Out to PastorBy MICHELLE CHRISTENSENSpecial to The News In 2009 a group of churches in our community had a meeting about the needs of the people in our community. They knew hunger was a big issue. After discussing what each church could offer, our pastor at Wakulla Springs Baptist Church Lewis Pollard thought, we may not have space for a food pantry, but we do have land. What about a garden to supplement the food pantries? With help from a church member who was involved with the Wakulla County Extension Of ce and many people from the church, a garden was born. The garden was even used as an Eagle Scout project and given the name Garden of Hope. Each year a garden is planted using private and local business donations. Each week the garden is tended and weeded. When the food is ready it is picked, washed and taken to local food pantries. This year alone the garden has produced more than 700 pounds of vegetables that have been donated to four local food pantries. The garden is a lot of dirty, hard work, but each person who works out there enjoys their time in the garden. Our churchs mission is Loving God, Loving People and Serving the World. This garden is grown to give Glory to God and to show him thanks for all the blessings in our lives. We pray that each person and family that receives the donations will understand the ultimate sacri ce that Christ gave for us. We would like to extend an open invitation to anyone who may be searching for a church home. Come join us at Wakulla Springs Baptist Church. Everyone is welcome. We consider our church a hospital for the soul. We encourage you to come to one of our services Wednesday at 7 p.m. or Sunday at 10:30 a.m. We have childrens church and a nursery available. For more information visit our website at wakullaspringsbc.org. Anyone who is interested in helping with the garden or wants more information please contact wsbcgardenministry@gmail.com. Editors Note: Michelle Christensen said she was prompted to write this about her churchs efforts to feed the hungry after reading the story Hunger is a problem in Wakulla in the May 31 edition of The News.That church with the gardenBy REV. JAMES L. SNYDER Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The rst thing is to de ne what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan, that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I nish my to-do list. Last Monday, I had just nished my morning cup of Joe and nished reviewing my to-do list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere.

President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act, granting each state 30,000 acres of public land for each member of Congress and establishing the landgrant-system. The land, or money received from its sale, was used to establish and maintain institutions of higher learning. The Morrill Act offered a new kind of college with a focus on making higher education accessible and that would, promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions in life, said Lincoln. The magnitude of the land grants impacts has included: increased job creation, economic development, food security, food production and food safety, improved human health and nutrition; and greater natural resource conservation, to name a few.

Prior to holding the foreman position at WMS, Shiver was the shop foreman at Peavy and Sons Construction. Shiver moved to Wakulla County to be closer to his grandchildren. When he heard there was an open position at Wakulla Middle School, he applied, interviewed, and was hired by Jay Wiggins. Shiver said he enjoys the social events like shing tournaments, barbecues and cooking competitions among the faculty and adds that he usually ends up doing the cooking at those events. Shiver added, What I like most about my job is the closeness of faculty and staff. We have great teachers, staff and administrators that are like a family. When I leave home every morning its like leaving one family and going to another. I also appreciate all of the support I get from my supervisor and the district staff. It is clear that Shiver embodies that family spirit among staff that he speaks of, according to his supervisor, Randy Bristol, Mr. Shiver has always gone above and beyond what was required of him as Operations Foreman at Wakulla Middle School. Whether volunteering his time or performing his job duties, Mr. Shiver always puts the best interest of the school rst. His connection to other agencies has been an asset to the school in acquiring equipment and furnishings for the school, Bristol said.

Debbie Burns and Patty Cockrell offer tips for parents to help positively shape children: Promote a love for nature: Wilderness has a therapeutic effect on indoor dwellers. Spending time in nature also helps children learn about their place in the world and the value of all the life that shares space with us. Show the value of teamwork: Working together toward a common goal doesnt always come naturally to children or adults. Parents should look for opportunities to point out their childrens great teamwork. Make sure they appreciate safety: The best medicine for any problem is prevention. Build their confidence with at least one skill: Knowledge and skills to a child are like water for a thirsty man in the desert. Kindness counts: Children should also know that people who make kindness a habit tend to be happier; there is an inherent joy in helping others. I understand parents are busy earning a living to support their children, Cockrell says. But who you raise in the process makes all the difference to the future world.

Sunday at Michigan International Speedway, Earnhardt Jr. captured the Quicken Loans 400 and he did it on Fathers Day to make the tears and the sweat and the length between victories all the more emotional. Asked what was the most compelling part of taking the checkered ag on this day, Earnhardt Jr. said: To do it for my fans. They stuck behind me all these years. I know exactly what theyve been thinking about and how long theyve been wanting us to get to Victory Lane. This is for them. I appreciate their loyalty and support. We wouldnt have made it back to Victory Lane without it. Earnhardt Jr. was dominating, leading 95 of the races 200 laps on MISs newly resurfaced twomile track and running away from second-place Tony Stewart over the last 60 green ag laps to take the checkered ag by 5.393 seconds. His run to victory began on lap 70, when Earnhardt Jr. ran down polesitter Marcos Ambrose. He received a challenge from Tony Stewart, who took the lead on the restart following the races fth caution, on Lap 88, but Junior re-passed him on Lap 106, going uncontested the rest of the way for his 19th career Cup win. The series shifts to the road course at Sonoma this Sunday. INDYCAR MILWAUKEE: Ryan Hunter-Reay waited patiently behind early race leader Dario Franchitti for the first 63 laps before taking his turn at the lead of the 225-lap Milwaukee IndyFest Presented by XYQ Saturday afternoon at the famed Milwaukee Mile circuit. The Andretti Autosport driver, logging his second career victory at Milwaukee and sixth series win overall, easily powered the rest of the way without challenge. Franchitti, whose lengthy rst pit stop enabled Hunter-Reay to assume the lead, crashed out with just 30 laps to go and nished 19th. The Scottish-born Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver dropped to seventh in the points standings behind leader Will Power, the DNF seriously dimming Franchittis chances for a fourth straight IndyCar series championship.Alan Ross is the author of 32 books and a contribe Cool Down LapEarnhardt Jr. snaps victory drought ~ Haircuts ~ Tea Tree Shampoo ~ Scalp Massage ~ Tea Tree Conditioner ~ Steam Towel ~ Neck Massage ~ Neck Shave (optional) Gentlemen Endulge Yourself Tea Tree 3 Experience926-40803334 Crawfordville Hwy. ~ Styles ~ Cuts ~ Color ~ Low Lites ~ WaxingDelta Farrington Law OfceDeirdre A.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsNineteen-year-old Stephen Day and his sister, Sara, recently ew in from California to spend a few days with their grandparents, Marvin and Ellie Mick of Shell Point. Stephen resently enlisted in the U.S. Marines and he wanted to go shing before he reports for duty next month, so Alan Lamarche took him on a three-hour trip in Apalachee Bay. Stephen had the shing trip of a lifetime catching and releasing dozens of sea bass, Spanish mackerel and sharks on light tackle. Stephen has enlisted with the Marine Corps for ve years. Alan said, This was a real honor to me to help make some back home memories for this future warrior. Offshore shing is great if you can get out I hope all the fathers out there had a nice and relaxing Fathers Day Weekend. It looks like it was a good thing that the Big Bend Saltwater Classic was changed. Initially I thought they had made a mistake by moving it, but after the high winds on Friday and Saturday Im glad they did. The reason for the change was so gag grouper season would be open. Nobody would have been able to get offshore on Friday or Saturday due to the high winds. The new dates of the tournament are July 6 through July 8, starting on the Friday after the Fourth of July. Scallop season is about two weeks away and I asked Bucky if anyone had reported seeing any scallops around St. Marks. He said earlier in the season they had but he hadnt heard anything lately. I dont believe the little rains we had have changed the salinity that much and I believe we should have a good season. I know Keaton Beach and St. Joe are expecting to have plenty again. Bucky said not many folks were shing and some folks were having good luck while others struggled. Look for trout on the east and west ats in 4 to 5 feet of water and use a white gulp under a Cajun Thunder or use live shrimp. Be prepared to catch lots of cat sh and plenty of small sharks. On Monday I went over to St. Joe Bay and shed with a neighbor who had rented a condo for a week. He said trout shing over there had been very good and the guides were doing a morning and afternoon trip and limiting on trout on both trips. The water was extremely clear as it always is and the wind was blowing like it always does. We started shing just a jig and Gulp but changed over to a Cajun Thunder and immediately started catching sh. All the sh we caught were hanging along the sand and grass and we got our limit in a couple of hours. Lots of Spanish are being caught on the East end of St. George and also on Dog Island Reef. Just look for the schools of bait or birds diving. There are plenty of cobia around and quite a few triple tail. Check the crab buoys for the triple tail and all of the marker buoys for the cobia. Triple tail are gonna love a shrimp cast to them with just a hook and no weight or a D.O.A. Jeff May from Atlanta came to Shell Point on Friday and was planning on taking a group out snapper shing in a friends boat. They nally went out on Sunday and said it was fairly rough though they did come in with nine red grouper and four snapper, two over 14 pounds. Capt. David Fife said he has been catching quite a few nice reds and some oversize in the Spring Creek, Oyster Bay area. David typically used live mud minnows and he said reds are also being caught using cut mullet on the bottom. On Thursday the weather was absolutely gorgeous and I took out Ricky and Danielle Dyke and Steve Byrd. Ricky and Danielle purchased a trip I donated to Wakulla Ducks Unlimited this year and we nally were able to decide on a date to sh. We came in with 20 trout, ve ounder and two Spanish. I told Danielle not to go bragging to folks about how she out shed the guys but said if she did I would back it up. She got so excited every time she caught a sh and thats what makes this job so fun. Steve said the week before he had gone out of Destin and they came in with their limit of real big snapper. On Friday I took Mike Chase and his buddy Andy Whitaker. Of course you cant ask for two beautiful days in a row and the wind howled all day on Friday. We caught about 50 trout but only eight were keepers and we did have three nice reds. Everything was caught on live shrimp under a Cajun Thunder. Mike has a condo over on the Ochlockonee River and he said last week he went out with some neighbors offshore. They put in at Lanark and came in with their limit of nice snapper, ve small kings and a 40pound cobia. Offshore fishing is great if you can get out there and inshore is good when the wind doesnt howl. Remember the Big Bend Saltwater Classic coming up in July and scallop season opens in a couple of week so make sure you have your diver down ag. Remember to leave that oat plan with someone and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing!Inshore is good when the wind doesnt howl From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL SPECIAL TO THE NEWSMaking memories Mosquitoes are outSpecial to The NewsTALLAHASSEE, Fla. The U.S. Forest Service presented its comprehensive 5-Year Strategic Plan for the Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) during a meeting of the FNST coalition partners at Mission San Luis on Wednesday, June 6. The FNST is a federallydesignated non-motorized recreation trail, which was started by a dedicated group of hikers in the 1960s. The trail consists of 1,079 designated scenic miles and is the only National Scenic Trail that explores a semitropical ecosystem. Although the U.S. Forest Service is the federal administrator for the trail, it relies on its close association with the Florida Trail Association and other coalition members to help oversee this national treasure. Volunteers play an invaluable role in the maintenance of the FNST and the implementation of the strategic plan. We wanted a plan that highlighted priorities that land managers could focus on. In addition, we wanted to provide them with a document that they could refer to as we work together to achieve our common goals, said Forest Supervisor Susan Matthews for the National Forests in Florida.Strategic Plan presented on Scenic TrailThe Florida Department of Health (DOH) reminds Floridians and visitors to take simple preventive measures to protect against contracting mosquito-borne illnesses. Floridians can take simple steps to combat mosquitoes and prevent mosquito-borne illness. DOH encourages three basic precautions to help limit mosquito bites and exposure to mosquito-borne illness: DRAIN any standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. COVER skin with clothing or repellent. COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your residence. If outdoors at dusk or dawn, be cautious as mosquitoes are most active during these times. DOH continues to conduct statewide surveillance for mosquito-borne illnesses, including West Nile virus, Eastern equine encephalitis virus, St. Louis encephalitis virus, malaria and dengue. Symptoms of mosquito-borne illnesses may include headache, fever, fatigue, dizziness, weakness and confusion. It can take two to 14 days to become sick after being bitten by an infected mosquito.

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the beautiful weekend weather we had and spend time with friends and family. The cool mornings have been refreshing! However, our cool weather is nothing compared to the coolness of a Seattle morning. Our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Information Services (IS) Duane Treadon headed out west for a specialized training on data entry for the Auxiliary. He sent in the following report. AUXDATA is the information database used by the Auxiliary to record and keep track of several Flotilla activities. Everything from safety patrols, on the water trainings, vessel safety checks, public education classes, marine dealer visits, public affairs and a host of other recreational safe boating. Loved by some, hated by others, AUXDATA is a complex database for IS Officers at the Flotilla, Division, District and National level to input and retrieve valuable information on members activities. Because of its complexity IS Of cers are required to attend an Auxiliary C-School for specialized training on how to utilize the system and its sister component AUXINFO. The intense hands-on training was just four days long and held in Seattle. During the class, I learned the proper way to enter and retrieve data. For anyone familiar with paperwork, there is almost nothing more challenging than getting it done properly. The Auxiliary is not immune to this and we work hard to make sure we record what we do in the right way. As they say, if the paperwork is not led, then it did not happen. While working through practice exercise with live Auxiliary data, I discovered these interesting facts about Apalachee Bay Flotilla activities since 2001: Members have contributed 65,311.50 hours of service, 8,401.10 hours of on-the-water safety patrols during 1,885 missions with 41 search and rescue missions assisting 88 boaters to safety. Plus 1,062 courtesy vessel safety checks, 1,985 dealer visits, with 1,138 boaters taking a public education course, and performing various public affairs mission totaling 3,601 hours. It is important to point out that as a volunteer organization each one of these missions and hours spent by Auxiliary members saves the Coast Guard money that is a direct savings to the American taxpayers. Each mission and hour spent by an Auxiliary member is task that the Active Duty and Reserve branches of the Coast Guard does not have to do, allowing them to focus their limited funding on critical missions like air operations for offshore search and rescue, disaster response, environmental protection and medical response to boaters far from medical facilities. In a recent study published in the magazine Coast Guard Proceedings, it was estimated that the service provided by Auxiliary members, 4.5 million hours of volunteer service annually, would be a $91 million cost to the Coast Guard if they had to hire full time equivalent personnel to cover this workload. AUXDATA is the tool that helps keep track of these often life saving and valuable hours given by our members. Many of us joined the Auxiliary because we love boating and wanted to help others enjoy a safe day out on the water. In order to continue to do what we do, we have to document our efforts so we continue to get support to be Semper Paratus. Next weekend, Flotilla 12 will host the summer Division Meeting, which will bring together members from Pensacola to Tallahassee-St. Marks and everywhere in-between. We will enjoy fellowship as well as learn what other flotillas are doing and how we may do something better. As Sherrie always says, Safe Boating is no accident. Be sure to file your paperwork and ll out a oat plan before leaving the dock!UnderwaterWakullaBy Travis Kersting www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 Page 11Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

In the early days of compressed-gas diving, well before my time, pressurized breathing gas was delivered to the diver from a pump on the surface. After World War II, Jacques Cousteau labeled his back mounted pressure vessel the Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) with very few alterations applied to this basic con guration since. A cylinder on the divers back, attached to which was a regulator system to make breathing from the cylinder possible at any reasonable depth. Scuba permitted the common person a chance to swim among the sh. Over the years certain conveniences were added. Many of these things were added to increase diver safety and then comfort. The submersible pressure gauge or SMB is the item that displays how much pressure is in the scuba tank. Early systems lacked this item but now is a required piece of equipment. The same applies to the buoyancy compensator which allows the diver to remain buoyant on the surface and neutral underwater. What went virtually unchanged for 60 years was where the scuba cylinder was attached to the diver. That is until dry cavers, looking to explore the submerged portions of dry caves, started an evolution that continues to this day. Many times the wet portions of caves were found far inside the dry cave, often through twisting and convoluted passages where moving with a tank on your back was impossible. Also, the redundancy required for cave diving requires the diver wear at least two complete life support systems, an even heavier and bulkier item to carry on your back. The solution was to carry the cylinders independently and to simply clip them to a light harness that the diver wears like a jacket. This also allows the diver the convenience of removing the tanks easily when he/she negotiates a restriction underwater. What we have seen is the evolution of side-mounting cylinders moving into the general open water population. Even PADI has a certi cation for it now. Now the diver can carry his cylinder, or cylinders, to the water independently instead of carrying it on his back while wearing the rest of his diving kit. Or someone on the boat can hand the cylinder(s) to you after you get in the water. If you have back pain, then side-mounted cylinders could make an otherwise painful or impossible activity completely painless and possible. The diver, assuming they use two cylinders (though not required), now has two completely independent and redundant systems which effectively doubles their bottom time and adds a considerable safety margin. There can be downsides to the side-mount dive system, especially for a new diver. An increase in task loading (more gas management), and some complications with diving from a boat are the two common concerns. Both issues can easily be dealt with by good training and proper equipment. When I learned of side-mount diving in 2007, we had two systems available on the U.S. retail market (that I was aware of): the Dive Rite Nomad and Golem Gear Armadillo. Now at least half a dozen companies produce them. Systems are even designed speci c to the traveling diver (with weight restrictions) and for the diver who wants to frequently switch between back-mount and side-mount con gurations. I jumped to side-mount, via a homemade rig in 2007. Since nishing my cave class in back-mount double cylinders, I have never been found with a cylinder on my back since. The last time I dove salt water (normally I am found in fresh water caves), I jumped in with a 3mm wetsuit, two aluminum 80-cubic foot cylinders, no lead weights, and minimal buoyancy compensator. The combination provided me with an amazingly free and comfortable diving experience. Increasingly, our diving paradigm is shifting. Next time you stand up and walk to the back of the boat, with a tank on your back, ask yourself what would make the experience better. Imagine a better way!

Laura Diane HopsonSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Of ce deputies arrested a Crawfordville couple on felony drug charges Wednesday, June 13 after responding to a disturbance call at their home and discovering more than 100 grams of marijuana, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Bryan E. Hopson, 51, and Laura Diane Hopson, 57, were charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of narcotics equipment and battery in the case. Deputy Cole Wells and Lt. Jimmy Sessor responded to the disturbance call and while speaking to the couple Bryan Hopson reported that Laura had marijuana in her vehicle. Three large bags of marijuana were observed in plain view inside the vehicle. Two more bags of marijuana were located inside the home along with drug paraphernalia. The marijuana weighed 102.5 grams. Neither suspect claimed the marijuana but due to both of the suspects being aware of the narcotics they were both arrested. Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Office has made two arrests in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries reported over the past weekend, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Cody Eugene Guinn, 18, of Craw ordville and a 17year-old boy have been arrested on multiple counts of grand theft, burglary of a conveyance and petit theft in connection with at least seven vehicle burglaries reported in the Wakulla Gardens area and Songbird subdivision in Crawfordville from June 8 to June 10. Detectives received con- dential information that Guinn and the juvenile were involved in the burglaries. The two were interviewed and allegedly admitted their involvement. They led the detectives to much of the stolen property. Guinn and the juvenile were arrested. The juvenile was released to a parent. Sheriff Crum stressed the importance of locking your vehicle while you are away from it and making sure all valuables are removed. Some of the stolen items that have been recovered include wallets, rearms, a compound bow, knives, CDs, sunglasses and a GPS unit. Continued from Page 6AFor the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pleaded, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue rmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My dif culty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away.Rev. James L.

How to ruin a perfectly good dayContinued from Page 1A Once a charter and feasibility study is submitted, the Community and Military Affairs Subcommittee will review the study and proposed charter with various legislative committees and state agencies. If the local bill proposing the incorporation is led and referred, it will go before the Legislature for approval. If approved by the subcommittee, it will appear before the Florida Legislature to approve. Once the charter is approved, a referendum will go out to residents to approve the incorporation. A majority of residents must vote in favor of becoming incorporated for it to move forward, Dickson said. Dickson said the city would then enter into several local agreements with the county, similar to what Sopchoppy and St. Marks currently have with the county regarding re protection and public safety. Becoming incorporated will allow the city to get a lot accomplished, Dickson said. Panacea Waterfronts is also looking at creating a Community Redevelopment Agency to enhance and improve certain areas of the community. CRA projects are funded by tax increment financing; the value of real property is determined on a xed date and any increase in tax revenue after that date would be set aside for the CRA. The city and the county would collect the tax revenue on the original property value. Dickson said the county attorney is helping Panacea Waterfronts draft the CRA. A CRA was drafted at one time, but the boundaries were not well de ned and it needed to be re-written. Panacea must create an ordinance creating the CRA, an ordinance adopting the appointees to the CRA and a resolution implementing it, Dickson said. All must be approved by the Wakulla County Commission. The plan is to have the CRA on the 2013 tax roll, he said. Dickson said the committee is hoping both the CRA and incorporation come to fruition to be able to do more in the community. The two would go hand in hand, he said.Panacea looks at incorporating as a cityArrests for vehicle burglariesCouple arrested for narcotics Bryan E. Hopson Cody Eugene Guinn

As the states leading advocate for anonymous crime reporting programs, Crime Stoppers has developed methods to facilitate crime reporting while maintaining caller anonymity. There are hundreds of unsolved cases in Florida, said DOC Secretary Ken Tucker. With this partnership with Crime Stoppers, the State Attorney Generals office and FDLE, we are hoping to close as many of those cases as possible. There are victims in many of these unsolved crimes who are still waiting for justice, Tucker said. We want to help them by solving these cases. The Department of Corrections intends to take advantage of Crime Stopper expertise by providing: An anonymous tipline for the Departments inmate population to report information. Training on the program for inmates when they rst enter the prison system. Informational posters on bulletin boards in inmate housing units and in community corrections of ces. The images and names of Floridas ve most wanted fugitives and ve most wanted absconders, (people on probation who have run away) will also be advertised on billboards and other media.

& Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012Editors Note: This is a new column from the Wakulla County Historical Society that will focus on historical interests. By JOHN ROBERTS I think its proper in this, my initial contribution to The Wakulla News, to give the reader a sketch of my background. Since my retirement, initially not having much to keep me busy, and having been blessed with a good memory, I began to reduce many of those memories to writing. I did it primarily for the bene t of my children so that someday, if they should be interested, they would have easy access to what their daddy did way back then. Since Florida license plates on our automobiles can be registered Antique at only 30 years, I claim to easily be an antique by now having just passed the 70 year mark. So as I share my long ago memories with you folks, I feel con dent that much of what I write here classi es also as history. You know how up in Tallahassee, everywhere you scratch the ground, you observe that sticky red clay just beneath the top soil. That stuff sticks to your shoes. It stuck to mine, and I will tell you a little bit about where I left those red clay footprints. After graduating from Leon High school in 1960, I left home as an enlisted sailor in Uncle Sams Navy. I spent two years aboard a destroyer, the only real excitement being part of the Cuban Missile blockade in 1962. Uncle Sam did keep his promise to me to see at least a portion of the world. For a boy who had never been outside of Dixie, I got to see Italy, Spain, Greece, Malta, France, Trinidad, and Cuba. Looking back, that couple of years were among the best years of my life. Then to Florida State University and a bachelors degree in Criminology. In 1966, I hired on as a Special Agent, Naval Investigative Service (now the Naval Criminal Investigative Service). Although a civilian, I was posted to 15 of ces 12 were in the U.S., and three were overseas (Philippines, Sardinia, and Cuba). I retired after 30 years service and am now working as a contract investigator. I am also now a proud member of the board of the Wakulla County Historical Society, and agreed to do this after being asked to do so by former longtime president, Mrs. Betty Green.

Those signs are placed on a mile of public road adopted by a caring organization or citizens. The requirement for the adoptees is to clean a minimum of four times per year, and communicate their cleanup estimates to KWCB each time. There are currently 40 roads adopted in the county, some are for two-mile stretches, others are four miles which equates to more than 82 miles of roads being voluntarily cleaned by adoptees. Ray Cade serves on the Board of Directors for KWCB and is the AdoptA-Road coordinator. He is someone who walks the walk by taking seriously his work with our organization and who was recently recognized for his participation in the state AdoptA-Highway program. He is the owner of Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers, and has done an outstanding job keeping his organizations section of highway litter free and goes above and beyond what the Adopt-A-Highway agreement requires. For example, the agreement requests that the group pick up litter a minimum of four times a year. Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers picks up litter on a regular basis; if the litter is out there, the group picks it up. Since January 2011, Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers has picked up 554 pounds of litter on Highway 319 in Wakulla County, logging more than 54 hours. The Chipley Five Counties project administers the Adopt-A-Highway program as part of the contract with the Florida Department of Transportations (FDOT) District Three. Annette Phillips, customer relations manager for Infrastructure, nominated Rays Kayaks & Nature Keepers to receive an Adopt-A-Highway Appreciation Certi cate from FDOT. Ananth Prasad, FDOT secretary, approved and signed the certi cate, which was presented to Cade by Phillips at Keep Wakulla Beautifuls meeting for Outstanding Community Service in March. She also presented him with a Trans eld Services Compass Award for Customer Service. If you are interested in nding out more about the Keep Wakulla County Beautiful Adopt-A-Road program, we invite you to come out on Tuesday, June 26 at 6:30 p.m., at The 19th Hole at Wildwood Resort, Crawfordville Highway, for our Adopt-A-Road Appreciation event. The special guest speaker is Major Maurice Langston who will be there to talk about the tremendous impact our volunteers have on our county.

Staff ReportThis years Sopchoppy Fourth of July Celebration will feature musical acts ranging from the rock sounds of the Harvest Gypsies to the bluegrass music of Say On! and the gospel songs of the Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Quartet. Say On! a musical duet composed of Neal Walker and Jeff Tilley performs at 1 p.m. Walker and Tilley are devout, Bible-believing Christians and members of Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church. Walker hails from West Virginia where he was exposed at a very young age to rstand second-generation bluegrass music acts like the Stanleys, and Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys. Walker plays rhythm and some lead on a Martin D16 and sings a high-lonesome style of vocals that he heard while growing up, in the singing voices of the old-time singers of West Virginia. Tilley grew up in Owensboro, Ky., just 35 miles down the road from the Bill Monroes Rosine, Ky., home place. Tilley took up the ve-string banjo at the age of 14 and right away won a talent show in his local high school. Tilley handles lead work on the banjo and guitar and sings both lead and harmony back-up. Brook Sessions takes the stage at 2 p.m. An up and coming young artist, Brook Sessions blends the sounds of country, soul and rock. Though just 16, her powerful voice leaves her listeners amazed. The events on stage get underway at 12:30 p.m. with the Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Quartet. The Currys perform at 3 p.m. The Currys consist of brothers Jimmy and Tommy and cousin Galen, and are a home-grown acoustic folk trio born and bred in the Florida panhandle. Incorporating elements of country, bluegrass, blues, and rock, the Currys music showcases thoughtful songwriting, unassuming instrumentation, and melli uous vocal harmonies. The Currys released their self-titled debut EP in April 2011, to wide critical acclaim. For more information, please visit galencurry. com or tommycurry.com. At 4:30 p.m., Steve Leslie will perform.

They have been described as sounding like if Eric Clapton and Mark Knof er went to a party and jammed all night with The Eagles, Steely Dan, Atlanta Rhythm Section, the Band, and The Grateful Dead and everybody loved it! www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 Page 3BContinued from Page 1B It is safe to say that when Mrs. Green asks me to do something, I nd it dif cult to say no, and so here I am. I hope you all nd my writings entertaining and maybe in some cases, informative. I also hope all you readers will strongly consider becoming members of our Historical Society as we can surely use that support to collect and preserve the valuable history of our county before it is lost in the fog of time. THE WILD GOOSE Of all the sounds of the wild, my favorite is the plaintive call of the Canada goose. It oods my mind with warm memories of home. The call is first heard, almost imperceptibly, the memories are stirred, and as it grows louder, it draws your attention to the source, making it impossible to ignore as you look heavenward and see the ight of the majestic Canadian geese. If they are ying high to some distant destination, their V shaped formation is nearly perfect, with the dominant goose in the lead. If ying low, their formation may be ragged and irregular and their calls more insistent and boisterous. In the 1930s, my mother, who was living at the St. Marks Lighthouse, was given the honor of banding the first Canada goose when the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge was created. And if you look closely at the signs marking the boundary to that refuge, and all other national wildlife refuges, I believe youll see a picture of the Canada goose prominently displayed. My daddy was unable to make a living and support his family the entire year with just his shing business at St. Marks. In the winter months, when shing was poor, he enclosed the sides of his 60-foot excursion boat, the Osprey, and used it for hunting the wild goose. He became a guide in the winter and took hunting parties of men, mostly from Georgia, Down East to goose hunt. I remember his fee was $100 a day, which back in those days, was pretty good income. Sometimes they would just stay on the Osprey and go inshore in small skiffs to hunt. The anchorage for the Osprey was right off Rock Island, about 20 miles or so east of the St. Marks Light. There were times though, when theyd pull Mr. O.P. Shields houseboat down there and anchor it up in Cow Creek, using it as their base camp. When school didnt interfere, my daddy would take me with him, and I loved those trips, especially when we stayed on the houseboat. What I remember most was those evenings after the men came in from the hunt. It was enjoyable for me to sit and listen to them laugh and talk, warm inside the Osprey as the cold wind whistled outside. Those were ne men and I know they must have enjoyed making me laugh with them at their stories. And I thought my daddy, who, after all was their guide, was king of the world. And always in the distance, the call of the wild goose.Roberts: Red clay footprints Entertainment set for Sopchoppy Fourth of July PERFORMERS: The Harvest Gypsies, above, will headline the show that includes singer Brook Sessions, above right, and The Currys, right.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 21, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 15 Floridas voter registration purge headed to court this week as state and federal agencies traded lawsuits in the politically charged effort to remove ineligible voters from the critical swing states voter rolls. In contrast, U.S. and Florida environmental of cials appeared harmonious in their joint effort to restore portions of the Everglades after federal of cials signed off on a revised plan to clean up water entering the region by reducing phosphorus levels and restoring ow. Meanwhile, a task force set up following the death of Trayvon Martin took testimony from his parents and others as they met near Sanford for the rst of a series of public hearings over the states Stand Your Ground self-defense law that has come under re following the death of the unarmed 17-year-old earlier this year. Citizens Property Insurance Corp. this week tapped a private sector executive to become its CEO as board members continue to push to downsize the statebacked insurer, which now handles nearly 1.5 million policies. In election news this week, legislative leaders weighed in on a number of fronts including a state Senate race in which a candidate saddled with ethics baggage stepped aside. And finally, Gov. Rick Scott this week recounted his own voting rights issues when, in 2006, he was informed that he was indeed, not dead. VOTER ROLL ISSUE HEADS TO COURTS Following weeks of bluster, Florida elections of- cials this week sued the federal government to gain access to a Department of Homeland Security database they say is critical for state efforts to purge ineligible voters from the rolls. The Department of Justice returned the favor by ling a federal lawsuit of its own, saying state efforts to remove voters from the rolls violates the National Voter Registration Act, which, among other things, prohibits the last-minute cleansing of voting rolls. The controversy stems from the state Division of Elections earlier this year sending a list of about 2,600 names of potentially illegal voters to local supervisors of elections. The division used what it has acknowledged was an imperfect list put together from a state Highway Safety database of people who had a certain degree of likelihood to be in the country illegally. Secretary of State Ken Detzner led his lawsuit in the District of Columbia to force the federal agency to share citizenship information. Detzner said the state has been trying for nearly a year to gain access to DHSs Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements Program (SAVE) database, which tracks citizenship and alien status. In response, U.S. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez said Florida is not complying with federal laws aimed at protecting the ability of eligible U.S. citizens to register to vote and maintain their voter registration status. A day later, the feds led suit in federal court in Tallahassee. Gov. Rick Scott has been spearheading efforts to purge the rolls. This week the governor said he had his own run-in with election of cials. In 2006, Scott, whose middle name is Lynn, got mixed up with a Richard E. Scott, a recently deceased Florida voter who happened to have the exact same birthday, 12-1-1952, as the governor. I had to vote provisionally because they said Id passed away, Scott said. So I said, Im here, heres my drivers license, Im really alive. And so they allowed me to vote provisionally. And then they went back and checked and said I was alive. TASK FORCE KICKS OFF STAND YOUR GROUND HEARINGS The rst public hearing of Scotts Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection offered a wide range of opinion on the Stand Your Ground law in Seminole County, where Martin was killed after an altercation with George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who now faces second degree murder charges. Among the nearly 100 people who turned out to speak were supporters of the statute on one side, and Martins parents on the other. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, the panels chairwoman, said the charge of the task force is not to debate Martins death but look at the state statute that allows residents to use force when they fear great bodily harm. But Carroll said the rst public hearing was held in Longwood, near where Martin was killed, to give its community members some closure on the shooting death that has roiled the state and nation. National outrage over the lack of an arrest in the shooting prompted Scott to create the task force and to name Jacksonville State Attorney Angela Corey the special prosecutor in Martins case. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, parents of the unarmed black teen who was killed less than four months ago, didnt necessarily call for the laws repeal. Fulton pleaded with the panel to at least look at the law in light of her sons death. The couple also delivered 375,000 online petitions collected by Second Chance on Shoot First, a national campaign. EPA OKS REVISED EVERGLADES PLAN Environmental Protection Agency of cials this week told Florida that a revised state plan to improve water quality in the Everglades meets with Washingtons approval, and said it may meet a federal judges order to clean up the ecosystem. The plan was rst submitted by Scott Administration of cials to Washington in October. A revised proposal was submitted earlier this month after the EPA raised objections to the initial plan. In the end, of cials said the technical plan was arrived at after extensive back-and-forth between Washington and Tallahassee. The state is under a federal court order to clean up the Everglades, following a lawsuit that resulted in a 2008 order by U.S. District Judge Alan Gold to boost cleanup efforts. GILWAY IN, NORMAN OUT Citizens Property Insurance Corp. board members on Wednesday tapped Barry Gilway, president and CEO of Mattei Insurance Services, a Seattle-based commercial insurance company, to take over Citizens, which now handles nearly 1.5 million policies and faces more than $500 billion in potential risk. While Gilway stepped in, Sen. Jim Norman, R-Tampa, stepped out. Norman announced he would not seek another term in the Florida Senate without explanation, but he faced a Senate ethics vote and ethics charges for failing to disclose the gift of a half-million dollar home to his wife. Norman, R-Tampa, admits he failed to disclose the gift when he ran for the Senate in 2010, but his lawyer argues it was simply a mistake. STORY OF THE WEEK: Floridas recent effort to pur ge its voter rolls headed to court this week as Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner and the Obama administration sued each other. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: So I said, Im here, heres my drivers license, Im really alive. And so they allowed me to vote provisionally. And then they went back and checked and said I was alive. Gov. Rick Scott on being told in 2006 that he had to cast a provisional ballot because he was, according to incorrect election of ce records, dead. WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Gov. Scott is alive and well and able to vote Join The Nature Conservancy to plant a billion trees, one tree at a time, in the ght to end climate change at plantabillion.org By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 18 Combatants in a decades-long water war pitting competing interests from Apalachicola to Atlanta may learn this week whether their battle piques the interest of the nations highest court. The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to meet Thursday to decide if it wants to wade into a tri-state, cross border feud over water ow in the Apalachicola-ChattahoocheeFlint River basin, an interconnected system linking Lake Lanier north of Atlanta to the Florida gulf coast. The high court is scheduled to decide whether to take up a dispute between Alabama, Georgia and Florida over who gets to decide where the water goes from the dammed lake under a series of agreements originally penned between federal of cials and the states more than 50 years ago. The issue has been embroiled in lawsuits off and on since 1990. The ght targets the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers control over the Buford Dam, which not only holds back the water that is now Lake Lanier but determines the water ow to the river systems farther south. Metropolitan Atlanta, which draws water from Lake Lanier, has seen its population swell from under 1 million in 1960 to 5.8 million today. Georgia argues the water needs of the teeming city outweigh the minimum ow requirements. Further, as operator of the Buford Dam, the Corps has the exibility to open the tap to the Atlanta area without an act of Congress, the state says. Alabama and Florida of cials say water ow is needed to maintain river levels, contributing to power generation, navigation, recreation and Floridas commercial seafood industry. Further, they say its up to Congress, not the Corps, to determine once and for all if that role is to be substantially changed.Water wars flow to DC this week HAS MOVEDOur new location is: The Barry Building, Back Building, #4 3295 Crawfordville Highway(ofce entrance is located between the 2 buildings) Ofce Hours: Monday Thursday, 8:00 am 5:00 pm (closed 12 noon 2:00 pm) For help with your utility bill and other assistance, call us at 850-926-3122 www.cacaainc.org DArcy Brazier OwnerServing Wakulla & Surrounding Counties for over 35 years60 Holiday Dr. Crawfordville, FL 32327926-5254 509 FOREIGN CAR REPAIR DOWN HOME TOYOTA HONDA Specializing In Specializing In NISSAN VW SUBARULic # MV15601www.DownHomeForeignCarRepair.com Synthetic Lubricants FREE Gas Treatment with service
