Thurmond noted that his office has faced numerous budget cuts, saying that So far, they havent had much impact on how services are delivered to the public.Ž Thurmond said he had reacted to past cuts with some personnel lay-offs and furloughs. This latest cut, though, left clerks throughout the state without enough money to fully operate their of“ ces … and most are cutting their business hours. Thurmond said theres a legislative meeting set for July 12 that could restore the funding to clerks, and that perhaps the shortened hours will be a temporary matter. Im trying not to do anything too permanent until they decide whether to “ sh or cut bait,Ž Thurmond said of the July 12 budget meeting. So this could be a two week thing or all throughout the year starting July 1.Ž I would just ask people to bear with us,Ž Thurmond said. This wont affect emergencies or things like jurors who have to report in earlier.Ž But, he said, there wont be walk-in or phone-in services for the public except between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.Debby is gone; destruction lingersClerk’s office shortens hoursChange due to budget cuts, says Clerk Brent ThurmondBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netMelisa Taylor announces her candidacy for the Wakulla County School Board, District 2. She will challenge incumbent Mike Scott in a race to be decided in the Aug. 14 election. Taylor, who has been an educator since 1984 and has been at Wakulla High School for the last 12 years, said that running for school board is a natural expansion on her commitment to students and residents of the community where I may broaden my impact, contributions, and education expertise to our entire district.Ž As a teacher at Wakulla High, Ive walked side-byside with the students, teachers, and administrators on a daily basis,Ž she said. I know what struggles each must overcome to be the most effective at their daily roles. I know what concerns parents most in our schools and how to create a more cohesive and seamless dialogue between parents and school of“ cials. My contributions and daily interaction with all levels of school administration, students and parents gives me a unique perspective.Ž In her education career, Taylor has worked in public and private education ranging from Orange and Seminole county schools to teaching for a private company that served teen actors on movie and television sets. Additionally, she has taught at Valencia Community College and Tallahassee Community College, but said she found a real home in Wakulla High School over the last 12 years. She has served as English teacher and department head, Senior Class Sponsor, National Honor Society Sponsor, Writing Coordinator, Advanced Placement Language and Composition Teacher, AVID Site Team Member, Mentor Teacher, Teacher Recruiter, and New Teacher Trainer. As a National Board Certi“ ed Teacher and owner of The Learning Curve Tutoring Center, she has spent many years studying and investigating strategies for increasing student learning and success and plans to bring this experience to the of“ ce of School Board. At the same time as a new superintendent is coming in, I do think its the perfect time for new energized blood to come in to the school board,Ž Taylor said. I am extremely proud of how much my hard work and the dedication of our Wakulla County teachers has resulted in Wakulla County Schools being named an Academically High Performing District,Ž Taylor said. As teachers, we devote countless hours in college courses, professional development and internships in an effort to bring the most helpful and concise information to students, with great expense to us personally. However, we do it because we love the students and feel called to provide them with the best education possible to help prepare them for successful college and career experiences.Ž Continued on Page 3A Melisa TaylorStaff ReportAlthough Wakulla County has yet to be declared a disaster area, Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson expects it to happen any day. In order for the county to receive help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a disaster declaration needs to come from the president. Gov. Rick Scott has requested the declaration from the president for individual assistance from the federal government. A request for public assistance has not been made. Federal and state preliminary damage assessment teams were in the county on Friday, June 29 and Saturday, June 30. These teams are assessing damages in both government and citizen categories to determine the countys eligibility for federal disaster aid. Although the county has yet to be declared, Nelson urged citizens who have been affected to not wait on the declaration to begin clean up. We expect to be declared, but theres no guarantee FEMA will be there,Ž Nelson said in an emergency called meeting on July 2 by the Wakulla County Commission. Nelson said the important thing for citizens to do is to start the process of removing the damaged items from their homes. If someone has insurance, go ahead and make a claim, he said. And document everything. Most of the ” ood waters have started to recede and most of the roads that were once closed are passable, he said. The Emergency Management Of“ ce has also scaled back its operations. At one time during and after the storm, Wakulla County had the help of the National Guard, Florida Highway Patrol and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, he said. A lot of work was done by a lot of folks in this county,Ž he said. Brad Harvey with the Property Appraisers Of“ ce gave an update on the local damage. There are 413 structures in the county that were affected by the storm totaling $9 million, he said. Out of these, 106 sustained major damages. About 40 homes were completely destroyed. The homes that received the most damage or destroyed were mainly in the Sopchoppy area on the Sopchoppy River. There are still flooding issues in the Woodland Drive area in Crawfordville and Fair Way in Medart. U.S. Highway 98 is still partially ” ooded near Fair Way and the Wildwood Country Club. Crews have kept the road open to one lane for more than one week. Local Impacts: The floodwaters along the rivers and creeks continue to fall. Areas along the Sopchoppy and upper St. Marks rivers are now accessible. The ponding of water from random sinkholes seems to have stabilized in the southern portion of the county. Water continues to rise in the Woodland Drive area. However, the rate of rise has slowed over the last 24 hours. This morning, western portions of the county, along the Ochlockonee River, received an estimated .75 to 1 inch of rainfall, the central portions of the county received an estimated .05 inches and the western portions of the county received an estimated 0.1 inches of rainfall.

Continued from Page 1A Just as I have felt called to teach all these years, I now feel called to contribute to the education of our students in a more comprehensive way.Ž While Taylor is certain Wakulla County will continue to be a high scoring district because of the commitment of the teachers in our schools, she says the challenges we will face in the upcoming years will be more vast and require a deep understanding of the inner workings of the schools and classrooms to overcome the numerous unfunded mandates that continue to “ lter down into our county through federal and state legislation. To additionally prepare for the position of school board member Taylor completed the Wakulla County School Board Education Leadership training offered in 2010-11 to have a more thorough understanding of the many facets that make up Wakulla County Schools. She met with each department of our school system -from transportation and food services to risk management and the of“ ce of Chief Financial Officer. Additionally, she attended union negotiation meetings between the district and teachers. I understand that we are in tough economic times,Ž she said. However, I also know it has been dif“ cult for teachers and school employees to pay for their own classroom supplies and professional development. Teachers have not received a pay increase since 2007-08 for either professional experience or cost of living,Ž said Taylor. School employees have really felt the economic crunch since before the economic downturn started.Ž She refuted the school boards contention that employees have been held harmless with increases in medical insurance, noting that single insurance rate coverage went up over $200 a year while family insurance rates went up over $500 per year. I believe its important to have an accurate picture of what we can do to keep our schools the best we can be by recruiting and keeping the best teachers,Ž Taylor said. It may not be possible to give teachers raises at this time, but it will be my responsibility to teachers and taxpayers to provide the best for all parties of our county.Ž Taylor said she believes its important as a school board member to be out in the schools on a weekly basis to truly understand the needs of students and teachers. You need to be in the schools to see the challenges faced by teachers, administrators and students,Ž she said. She plans to continue “ lling several of the needs she “ lled as a fulltime employee of Wakulla High School as a volunteer, sponsoring clubs and activities in which she is currently involved, plus volunteering as a substitute teacher several hours per month. I believe I need to earn the pay that accompanies the responsibilities of school board member and be sure to stay connected with each of the schools and their administration on a regular basis,Ž Taylor said. It has been a pleasure to work with David Miller and Beth ODonnell and both of the principals at Wakulla High School and I just hope to be able to continue working for the people of Wakulla County,Ž she said. Taylor has been a resident of Wakulla County since 1996. She is married to Larry Taylor, a 1977 graduate of Wakulla High. They have two sons, Justin and Marshall Taylor, who both graduated from Wakulla High and Florida State University. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper.  Vendor applications available for Stone Crab Festival Interested vendors should contact Mickey Cantner at (850) 567-0157 or email info@stmarksstonecrabfest.com.

Political BriefsDecrease in revenue expectedBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe anticipated decrease in revenue from this current “ scal year to the next is 1.49 percent, if the millage rate remains at 8.50 mills. This equates to $130,241. Deputy Administrator Tim Barden said the current proposed budget is perfectly balanced with the Wakulla County Commission keeping the millage rate 8.50 mills. The budget will be turned over to the commission on July 15 who will then tweak it before approving it. County Commissioner Mike Stewart said he would like to see other options for the millage rate, such as 8.25 mills. Id like for us to push for us to lower it,Ž Stewart said. Stewart said the only reason he voted to levy the Public Services Tax last year was because the commission said it would make an effort to reduce the millage rate. We owe it to the people to lower it,Ž Stewart said. Commissioner Alan Brock said the county has reduced expenditures and with the current millage rate, it is also able to continue to put money into reserves. County Administrator David Edwards said at the current millage rate, he and his staff have compiled a balanced budget. We are far from healthy,Ž Edwards said. Weve got to have a healthy government.Ž Edwards said there are no raises in the proposed budget or tax increases and the plan is to keep the millage rate at 8.50 until 2017 to build up the reserves. The county can start rolling back the millage later in 2017, he said. He is working on a “ ve year plan for the county so increases or decreases in millage and taxes are controlled and planned, as opposed to decreasing the millage rate one year and increasing it the next. Were living within our means,Ž Edwards said. Were paying for sins of the past,Ž Commissioner Randy Merritt said. Commissioner Alan Brock said four years ago the county commission lowered taxes when the economy was good and know the current commission is trying to clean it up. Commissioner Jerry Moore was in favor of lowering the millage rate to 8.25 mills and said people cant afford to pay more taxes. Were running a business,Ž Moore said. Brock interjected and said, Were running a government.Ž Moore rephrased his comment and said, Government should run like a business.Ž He said he would not vote for any new programs, consultants or visioning. Edwards said the county is holding the lines on expenses. In the proposed budget, general fund expenditures have increased by 4.46 percent, or $882,092. This is due to an increase in the sheriffs budget because of a new medical contract with Armour and an increase in health insurance; an increase in the planning department because it had a full year salary for the planning director; an increase in the emergency medical services department because of an additional third shift supervisor position and two EMT positions; increase in the extension of“ ce department because of adjustments in the directors salary; parks and recreation department budget increased because of a parks and recreation director position; an increase in the county administrations budget because of a full year of a county administrators salary; and an increase in the facilities management budget for emergency repairs and preventative maintenance.Melisa Taylor is running for school board FAIR HOUSING PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETINGWakulla County will conduct a Fair Housing training on Monday, July 16, 2012 during a regular County Commission meeting which begins at 5:00 p.m. in the Wakulla County Commission Chambers, 29 Arran Road, Crawfordville, Florida 32327.

One important factor is where the candidate lives, works, and plays. Since our House District includes 10 counties, a direct tie to Wakulla County will surely improve our representation. With that in mind, I researched the Wakulla County property records and only one of the Republican candidates owns property in our fair county. That person is Halsey Beshears. In fact, both he and his brother own property in Wakulla County. According to the Wakulla County Property Appraiser, in 2011, together they paid property taxes on $213,657 which signi“ cantly supported our county government and schools. While neither of the Beshears brothers claim Wakulla County as their home, their ties to our county are strong. I hope the readers use this small bit of information to help make a determination of who to support in the upcoming elections. When voting, there is a massive amount of information to evaluate about each candidate; but I doubt many people know Halsey Beshears had strong ties to Wakulla County well before he decided to enter the arena of politics. Ed Brimner Realtor CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: As I write this letter, assessments of the impact of Tropical Storm Debby are still being conducted and many Wakulla residents are still in recovery mode. Id like to make a few observations on our communitys response to this event from a citizens perspective. As this significant weather event unfolded, the internet was my information lifeline. Some news outlets and certain public of“ cials and particular government entities were better conduits of information than others. The relative dearth of reliable, timely information seemed to leave many residents resorting to informal modes of communication and the veracity of information received was never entirely certain. In such a time of community crisis, accurate information can literally make the difference between life and death. We are so fortunate to have emerged, to date, from this event without loss of life in Wakulla. Without diminishing the very real impact of property damage on at least 75 area homes, Id like to consider this event a dress rehearsal and a wake up call for our government entities and media outlets. If a regular citizen wants information and is not somehow plugged into an of“ cial entity, where do they turn for accurate and reliable information? The Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce is one such news source and the timeliness of their updates via their website and Facebook improved as the emergency unfolded. The Wakulla Board of County Commissioners posted updates and sent out emails with situation updates. Commissioner Mike Stewart posted updates on his Facebook page. Commissioner Alan Brock used Facebook and Twitter to send community updates. Wakulla.com was a good source of updates, despite the Westmarks evacuation from their own home. WCTV and WTXL also provided real time information on their websites and Facebook pages. To a lesser extent, the Tallahassee Democrat was providing online updates as well. However, I was particularly struck by Tallahassee Democrat editor Bob Gabordis response to my comment on his blog titled, Our team is ready for whatever Debby brings.Ž Rachel Sutz Pienta: Any possibility of doing livestream updates and maybe remote feeds? Your election coverage in 2010 was cool stuff. Could you embed a staffer in the Wakulla EOC for coastal updates?Ž June 25 at 12:54 p.m. Gabordi: Good idea. Lets see where the storm tracks. It appears to be moving away.Ž June 25 at 1:54 p.m. June 25 was Monday. Lowlying coastal areas in Wakulla had already been under evacuation orders for close to a day. Homes were already ” ooded. In Wakulla, Debby, for all extents and purposes, was already here. Monday night would bring more ” ooding and more evacuations in Wakulla. I think the Democrat missed the boat … pun intended … on Debby coverage by not implementing the full coverage Gabordi discussed in his blog. How can residents who lose power or do not have internet access in their homes receive vital information during an emergency? I would like to see the newly created GoWakulla Mobile App be utilized for emergency communication purposes. Wakulla-speci“ c text message alerts would be helpful. On Tuesday, a Wakulla speci“ c alert was broadcast over the emergency radio system. The system could have been utilized earlier to broadcast critical information such as the evacuation orders. Finally, I want to say thank you to all the county staff … the county administration, Public Works staff, WCSO personnel and emergency responders … who all performed above and beyond the call of duty and are still putting in long hours on recovery efforts. Rachel Sutz Pienta CrawfordvilleREADERS WRITE:Halsey Beshears has Wakulla tiesWhen there’s breaking news, go to Wakulla News website Editor, The News: We would like to say a public thank youŽ to the FWC of“ cers, Chris Jones, Jamie Holcomb and Mat Bell, for the spectacular rescue made June 26, on the Sopchoppy River. After checking on a residence in the Deer Run Court area, our boat caught on a fence and quickly capsized in the raging river. Clinging to bushes and standing on fence posts, using a water proof cell phone, a 911 call resulted in the prompt response of these three officers. There was unimaginable relief when we heard the air boats crank in the distance. We were on land within 45 minutes of our 911 call. The officers were very skilled and professional. They got the job done. We thank God for their help and His mercy. Bobby Connell, Bobby Stafford, Joe Stafford Tallahassee and Crawfordville Okay, so the health care mandate was upheld … so how much broccoli does that mean I have to buy to be in compliance?Ž By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netI got a Letter to the Editor on Friday from Rachel Sutz Pienta about the availability of online information from various news sources during Tropical Storm Debby. Some news organizations and sources were better than others, she wrote, and went on to name each website she turned to for news of the storm … area TV stations, newspapers and sites. But she never mentioned The Wakulla News and our website, thewakullanews. com. So I wrote back to ask her why. Rachel, I notice you dont mention The Wakulla News as a source. We were updating the website regularly throughout the storm with information, beginning with the evacuation notice for low-lying areas on Sunday evening … and continuing with updates today. Are you not aware we are online? or did you feel that the information was not timely?Ž She replied: Bill I have to say that although I have a home print subscription that in the past the online info was not really timely so I stopped considering the News as a real time source of updates. I did not look at all at your site during Debby because of this.Ž So to other readers who may not be aware: whenever there is some sort of breaking news, we work to get it online as quickly as possible. And during emergencies such as Tropical Storm Debby, we are updating the story and posting new stories as quickly as we get them. Stories on emergency situations … hurricanes, disasters, and the like … are free. That means you dont have to be a subscriber to get access to information we have online. During Debby, we posted weather updates from the National Weather Service and information from Scott Nelson at Wakulla Emergency Management almost as soon as we received it … whatever information on the storm that readers might need or “ nd helpful. And the stories were posted on the home page … usually in the Breaking News box, or, in the case of the evacuation order or the boiled water notice, in a Breaking Banner across the top of the page … so you didnt have to search for it. It is true, as Rachel points out, that on a regular news week, when there are no tropical storms bearing down on us, the website may not be updated daily. But if there is a breaking story, were going to put it online as quickly as possible and update as often as necessary to get the news to you.

I want to tell them how much we appreciate the gesture, and thank them for being so nice. Mary Posey CrawfordvilleSpending money at airport is bad ideaEditor, The News:Airport Expansion: Throwing Good Money After Bad.Ž The Wakulla County airport reportedly serves less than 5 percent of its capacity, mainly from pilots in the Tarpine subdivision. It has a lighted grass airstrip on 13 acres, and the county covers operating costs, since, like most small airports, it does not pay for itself. Airport proponents want commissioners to use $3.6 million from a state grant to buy 32 acres, a private hanger, pave a lengthened runway, and build a taxiway, more hangers, add lighting and big gasoline tanks. If expansion will most certainly increase operating costs, should commissioners spend our taxes to subsidize the hobby of a few pilots? Proponents argue expansion will create jobs, but theres no evidence of that. The airport is on Ochlockonee Bay far from most Wakulla County people. Moreover, the airstrip is landlocked by Surf Road, U.S. Highway 98, and homes and churches. There is no room to grow in order to compete with neighboring airports twice the size. Furthermore, the runway is in a coastal ” oodplain, where, last week, it was underwater, and, this week, the new runway site is still a swamp. Is there any reason for building where land is boxed in, and so low and wet that home builders must build 20 feet above the ground? If commissioners want a profitable airport, they should consider high, dry and open areas of land close to the people. Spending millions of dollars on the Tarpine airstrip is throwing good money after bad.William Anderson Surf Road resident anks to FWC o cers for rescue anks to Carraway Cuto residents Editor, The News:I have known Mike Williams for 53 years.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 – Page 5AThe News also faced challenges with DebbyBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netTuesdays are deadline days for The Wakulla News, and I usually start Tuesdays pretty early, getting to the of“ ce around 6:30 in the morning to get the newspaper out by 7 p.m. Last Tuesday, though, I came in to “ nd the electricity in the News of“ ce was off. I wrote some news items on my laptop, but it became apparent that the electricity wasnt coming back on anytime soon. I texted General Manager Tammie Bar“ eld, who had been evacuated from her coastal home, and Eric Stanton, the newspapers graphic artist and IT guy, about what we should do … and whether we needed to look for a remote location with power and internet to get the paper out. 8 a.m. Tammie came in to the of“ ce … after a night at the Best Western in Medart, where theyd lost power about 8 p.m. the previous night and it was still off. A Progress Energy work crew pulled up on the road outside the of“ ce, and a worker told her that he expected the electricity to be out until at least 2 p.m., maybe later. Petra Shuff said the Chamber of“ ce had electricity and internet and said we were welcome to set up there. Eric had come in to the of“ ce and, joined by reporter Jennifer Jensen, we started pulling wires and loading computers and terminals and scanners and cables into cars to run up to the Chamber. Around 9 a.m. we were trying to reassemble the computer network system in a conference room at the old courthouse. Jennifer was writing out her news stories in longhand. Around 10 a.m., we were still struggling to get the system up and running … we kept crashing, and taking the Chamber internet down too. It was after 11 a.m. when receptionist Denise Folh called us from The News of“ ce to say power was back up … and we proceeded to break everything down, load it up and move it back to The News. By noon we were back online with our systems running … and recognizing that we needed to revise our backup plan. Thanks to Petra for the offer of help, and letting us impose on her. Tropical Storm Debby a ects many Debby from the readers point of view Home ” oods near Wildwood days after Debby leavesSpecial to The NewsCheri Morgan woke up on Wednesday morning, June 27, to “ nd water was an inch away from entering her house. She lives on the fairway next to Wildwood Golf Course. She had to evacuate so she put her bathing suit on, put what belongings she could “ ll in a plastic container, along with her little dog, Captain Morgan, who was “ nally a captain of his own vessel, ” oated her belongings and waded waste high across the front lawn and evacuated to a friends house. The subdivision has underwater utilities so the power company turned the power off to the neighborhood for their own safety. As of Tuesday morning, one week later, the water has not drained enough for power to be returned and water is still in the garage but has drained from inside the house. She said living on the golf course she sometimes worries about flying golf ball, but never worried about ” ooding. She was very appreciative of the items the American Red Cross provided for clean up and comfort along with the advise and support. The Wakulla County Sheriffs office were also very helpful and supportive as they provided help as well. Trustees from the sheriffs of“ ce went above and beyond by wading into the water and lined the doorways with sandbags to help hold the water back. Cheri Morgan looks at her home on the fairway next to Wildwood Golf Course. Her home ” ooded on Wednesday, June 27, days after the rain stopped. LYNDA KINSEY By TAMMIE BARFIELDtbar“ eld@thewakullanews.netI live at Live Oak Island and after going through Hurricane Dennis, any time there is a storm brewing, even justŽ a tropical storm, Im uncomfortable. Storms are hard to predict, and the surge and tidal effects they will have on our coastline, rivers and estuaries are also hard to predict. Tropical Storm Debby kept the meteorologists and their models hopping. Early on, the storm was thought to be headed toward Louisiana or even further west, so my husband and son went forward with their plans to go to the mountains camping for the week. At 6:30 a.m. on Sunday they were off on their adventure. My adventure was later to begin as Debby was stationary in the gulf thinking about which direction she wanted to turn. When it was decided that she had her eye on Apalachicola, I went into action moving the furniture and other stuff from the yard to the inside of our downstairs area, which is about 3 feet above the ground. Debby was justŽ a tropical storm and would make landfall in an hour and a half, so I decided inside downstairs should be okay. Later that afternoon, I called my sister-in-law, who lives with her husband over at Mashes Sands, and their road was beginning to ” ood and a deputy was already setting up a roadblock to keep people out. Then emergency management issued evacuation of areas south of U.S. Highway 98, so we decided we would all go to my brother-in-laws house because although he was at Shell Point, his home is a little more inland.

His home sits 8 feet off the ground and this is the “ rst time since the cabin was built in1972 the water has risen this high. He evacuated Monday evening just before dark. Walter Solburg called him and told him he would meet him on Greenough Road if he would canoe out and meet him. So, he got what he could put in his canoe and started paddling. The rain was so heavy he had to keep bailing the canoe out while maneuvering through the rushing water. It was still just light enough that he saw a tree had fallen and was leaning against the power line, so he had to go into the trees to bypass the situation. He had previously taken his car to his friends house on higher ground because he could tell it was going to ” ood, but wasnt sure just how high it would get.

The Lord Jesus described the basic meaning of a church in a very simple and yet profound way:For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.ŽCome take part in our study of Gods Word.4330 Crawfordville Hwy. By Rev. James L. SnyderAs we celebrate another birthday of this great country, I cannot help but think back on some of our history. What a grand history we have had. I know some people are ashamed of our history and so we have revisionists rewriting American history. Nevertheless, I certainly want to celebrate the real America. My wife and I were relaxing after a scrumptious supper and were watching a little bit of TV. I was half dozing, as is usually my condition after such a supper, when my wife startled me with a question. It was a news program on television updating us with the latest political scratch-talk. If it were not for politics, the airwaves would be silent. Oh, for those wonderful sounds of silence. Personally, I would be glad to double my tax rate if in doing so we could put to silence all this political-scratchtalk. I call it scratch-talkŽ because whoever is talking is trying to scratch somebodys back even if it is just their own. I guess we have a lot of itchy backs in this country. Thankfully, we have an endless supply of backscratching politicians. It does not matter which way the wind is blowing each political party says it is blowing in their direction. I guess you have to go to eight years to Harvard and have a student loan debt of $120,000 to understand how that works. If you do not mind, I just do not want to know how it works. With the politicians unable to create work in our country for common Americans, the real Americans, they sure know how to work a situation, usually to their advantage. If they could put all of this to work for the good of the ordinary American, I would feel happier about paying my taxes. As it is, I pay my taxes but not happily. Back to my wifes question. Who are,Ž she said very carefully, the real Americans in this country?Ž Then she paused for a moment and followed it with this question, Who does America really belong to?Ž Well, those two questions got me thinking. Who are the real Americans? Are they Republicans, Democrats or Independents? I know there is a bunch of other miscellaneous political parties but I cannot think of them right now. Which one is the American Party? If I do not like any political party, where does that leave me? I am all for parties, but the whole idea of a party is for people to have fun. I do not see any political party where I could have fun. The strange thing today is, if I do not belongŽ to some political party I am not able to vote in this country. Moreover, if I do vote, who in the world do I vote for? My wife and I got to talking about this and I, for once in my life, posed a question.

I pay tribute to the wonderful people who have monitored the storm, offered their homes to others, provided food and clothing and others who have provided support and assistance. In the last few weeks I have posted on our website www.wakulla.ifas.u” .edu many articles related to ” ood recovery. I have tried to focus on the concerns that people will confront upon their return to their homes. All of the articles are available in print by simply calling the of“ ce. The University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) has a wealth of materials available to you with practical suggestions to many of the things that will need to be addressed during ” ood recovery. Please call or stop by to get copies or go to the website listed above. Perhaps these materials would be useful to you, your family or friends. Some topics are: Replacing Lost or Damaged Documents, Odor Removal for Appliances, Savaging Household Furniture, Cleaning Household Linens and Furnishings, Dealing with Flood-Damaged Carpets, Rugs and Clothing, How to Dry Books and Family Papers and Eliminating Odors from Appliances. Please let us assist you during this time of recovery. And lets not forget the children during this time of added stress. A disaster can make a child afraid and a child can mix up real fear and make-believe fear. We all need to be prepared to assist. How can we assist a child understand all that is happening around them? Some suggestions include not leaving a child alone in a new place; stay together to show you wont go away; tell the child about the disaster and tell them that you are also afraid but that together as a family everything will be alright. Assist your child to talk through their feelings and it is important to listen to their responses. Say to them that it is alright to be afraid and that everyone is working to make everything alright again. Let the children help clean up. Put as much order in your life as possible. Explain the plans for each day so that they understand that progress is being made. Bedtime may be especially dif“ cult. Agree on a time when bedtime will be and try to hold to that. Routine is important during this time of transition. A child may not want to be very far away from their parents or their siblings, especially at bedtime. Remember that a child likes to be around people and in places that he knows. Remember to praise all children for the good things they are doing. Take a break during the day and certainly at bed time to tell a story and if possible, read a book that is fun, positive that lightens the loadŽ for the child for a little while. The frequent reminder that you love your children and that the family will get through this time of stress in a very important step.Special to The NewsThe public is invited to attend Cookies and CandidatesŽ a political forum for Democratic candidates running for the House District 7 seat in the Florida legislature on July 12, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The forum, sponsored by the Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee, will take place at the Wakulla County Public Library.

We at Shell Point dodged the bullet from Tropical Storm Debby though many folks in the county are still out of their homes because of the amount of rain we had. I have talked to a lot of people that have lived here all of their lives and they have never seen that much rain that fast. There was talk that this storm would be worse than Dennis, but fortunately it wasnt. It never came over the seawalls at our house though it got close. I think I can speak for my neighbors and say thank you to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office and Florida Highway Patrol for the officers that were at the turnoff to Live Oak Island from Shell Point Road that spent three miserable days there. That is an area where a lot of people will put their cars and boats when they expect Live Oak, Shell Point and Oyster Bay to flood. Once they did an evacuation these of“ cers were there all day and all night checking to make sure people coming back to our area lived there or had a reason to be there. I dont care how good your raincoat is, when youre in that kind of rains youre gonna get wet and most of the of“ cers I saw were drenched. Again, thank you. As most people know, scallop season opened on Sunday, July 1. Also as most people know, scallops do not like fresh water. The big question was what would all the freshwater running into the bay do to the scallops. The state does a study and St. Marks was suppose to have a season comparable to 2008 when you could get your limit in no time. I talked to several people at Shell Point that went and they all got scallops. One boat said they got theres out from Black Rock in 8 feet of water and one boat said they went more down toward Gray Mare. Any way, the scallops are there and you will have to work for them as stained up as the water is. Dont forget the diver down ” ag, dont get too close to other boats that have divers in the water and know your limits. I talked to Bucky at Shell Island Fish Camp and he said quite a few boats came in with their limit of scallops while others had a hard time. Forrest Vickery from Tallahassee had a group down and he told Bucky the closer he got to Gray Mare. Bucky also said the afternoon low tide was the better time since you didnt have to dive so deep. Fishing is also good out of St. Marks. Lots of trout are being caught on the ” ats and most of them are nice “ sh. This is the time of year its gets hard to “ nd live shrimp so get out your favorite plug of jig. Mike Pearson from Tifton went out Saturday and caught three big ” ounder using mud minnows and went back with some other folks from Shell Point on Sunday and caught more flounder and some nice trout. Capt. David Fife from Spring Creek also caught quite a few ” ounder this past weekend. Glen and Alicia Peel went over to Orange Beach, Ala., and went out with a friend. They caught their limit of snapper, quite a few big kings and two cobia, one which weighed around 50 pounds. They put the “ sh in the boat green and Glen said Alicia scrambled to the front of the boat because she knew what a “ sh that big could do when it was landed that early. Week before last, I took Brad Gray and his 6-yearold son Chase for a half day. Chase caught “ ve nice trout and two big ” ounder using live shrimp. My niece Daina and her husband Chris along with their three boys, Gavin, Chandler and Gunter, came over for the Fourth of July week to go fishing and scalloping. I just knew the “ shing was going to be horrible due to all the rain but I couldnt have been more wrong. On Saturday we had 12 big trout, two ” ounder, two Spanish and we released six big blues. Gavin, who is 9, caught a 20-inch trout “ shing with a Gulp and everything else was caught on live shrimp. Gavin Hooked a cobia but had to give the rod to his mother because he couldnt handle it. After about 10 minutes Daina landed a 30-inch cobia. On Sunday we went to the Shell Point Reef and “ shed the Gulp under a Cajun Thunder and had seven big trout and a 4-pound Spanish. Chandler caught the big trout and big Spanish for that day. We “ shed about three hours on Saturday and about that many of Monday. The water is extremely dirty but the “ sh are biting and I saw more bait than I have seen all year. Monday morning and as soon as I get this to the paper we are going out again and scalloping in the morning. As we were launching Chris boat on Saturday morning I got a call from Alan Lamarche saying he was broke down at the tripod. He was on his way out grouper “ shing with Jeff Swift, GA DNR Law Enforcement director and his brother in law John. He had planned on going out for snapper and grouper. We didnt think the boat I was in would tow the big Grady White so I took him back to his dock and he got his boat. He “ nally got the other boat towed back in and he thinks it had gotten water in the gas. Despite the delay they came in with their limit of red and black grouper. Gag Grouper is now closed in State waters but open in Federal Waters. The red snapper season has also been extended until July 17 and as I mentioned, scallop season opened July 1st. The Big Bend Saltwater Fishing Tournament is this coming weekend. Still not too late to enter. It was changed from Fathers Day weekend so that grouper season would be open in Federal Waters. Good luck to all those who enter. Two weeks ago in my article I talked about the great trip I had with Ricky Dykes who purchased my trip at the Ducks Unlimited Banquet. I put a wrong name in the paper. It was actually Kim Deal and not Danielle who was with us. Kim was one heck of an angler. I did say she out“ shed everyone and that was correct. Fishing is good and the scallops are here despite all the rain. Be careful out there and take plenty of water. There are going to be a lot of boats scalloping this week so be extremely careful. Good luck and good scalloping and “ shing!

Each week, auxiliarists receive an electronic edition of the Navigator Express newsletter. Often, these have a message from the National Commodore, James Vass, who oversees the Auxiliary. This week, he sent a very inspirational and informative Independence Day Message. It is worth sharing with all of you. Commodore Vass wrote: 1939, Congress established the U. S. Coast Guard Reserve, which was later renamed the Coast Guard Auxiliary in 1941. Through the years the Auxiliary has grown and changed, but we have always remained focused on our goals of saving lives through education and providing support to the U. S. Coast Guard. As we now celebrate the anniversaries, both the 236th year of Independence of our country July 4, and recently the 73rd anniversary of the Auxiliary June 23, we need to focus on the pride we have as volunteers supporting our nation and working with the Gold (active duty) side. Volunteering is critical to the well-being of our country. We should all take pride in the 1,058,817 volunteer hours dedicated by Auxiliarists and the 27 lives saved this year with 693 persons assisted since January 2012. On these anniversaries it is an excellent opportunity to show the spirit of the Auxiliary volunteerism and the dedication to supporting the Coast Guard. We hold the Coast Guard in high esteem for their unwavering courage in their mission to save lives. Auxiliarists should take pride in their contributions of time and talent so the Gold Side can accomplish their mission. I wish you all a happy anniversary and a summer safe on the water.Ž Membership in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is open to citizens age 17 and older who meet the prescribed requirements. If you are interested in learning more about joining the auxiliary, lease contact Norma Hill at FSO-HR@usgcaux.net. As Sherrie says, Safe Boating is no Accident … Take pride not only in your country, but in your safety. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 – Page 9Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

There are mythical beings in the rivers, the lakes, the swamps, the caves, and of course the ocean. Before our age of scienti“ c discovery, you would look at the spring in your back yard and ask yourself, was that a Naiad swimming in the waters? But wait, what is a Naiad?? And why is it living in your Spring? A Naiad is a Greek water nymph that was attached to ” owing water, often depicted as a beautiful, nude woman bathing in the waters of her spring. It was said that a Naiad would die if her spring were to ever dry up. The Celts believed that the river held mystical black horses called Kelpies, who would peek their eyes out of the water to watch the people on land, much the way our alligators do. One would lure unwary humans, especially children, to ride on its back and the Kelpie would take off with the rider into the deepest part of the river to drown its victim. Even today we watch our children closely as they approach the waters edge, but now we worry more about the gators than the kelpies. As the conquistadors “ rst discovered our waters, they would sail down our rivers and look over the rails of the ship to see the shadowy forms of mermaids swimming in the Florida rivers. When a sailor “ rst saw this creature with long green hair undulating under the water as it swam away, he saw similarities to both man and sea. When looking over the rails of our own high dive in Wakulla springs I saw my “ rst mermaid. Her long green hair was strings of algae ” owing behind her as she swam, not side to side as other “ sh, but up and down as a human would with her spine oriented in the same fashion as other mammals. In that statement, I realized that the conquistadors werent far off. Mermaids are a marriage of man and the sea, Manatees are a marriage of mammals and the sea. They represent two worlds coming together and creating something straight from legends right in our back yards. Though the conquistadors found mermaids in Florida, the Irish, Scotts, and Welsh found women (and a few men) living in the sea as well. They were the Selkie, seals who could shed their skins to walk on dry land. It was said that if you stole the skin of a Selkie and hid it from its owner, the Selkie would wed you and stay with you. However, they would pine for the sea, and if the Selkie ever found its skin, nothing on dry land, not love or money, could keep him/her from returning to the sea. Today, when you look outside to your own community, you can see the mysterious waters of the Wakulla Springs cave system. In the hay-day of mythology, our springs would have been worshipped as divine. The home to Naiads, kelpie, mermaids, and ruled by its own river god. Today, Florida springs are in danger; many have been “ lled or contaminated by runoff toxins and sewage “ elds. To the end of remembering the divinity of our treasure, this is but the “ rst article exploring the myths and legends surrounding the water elementUnderwaterWakullaBy Nicole Stanton Thursday Friday

These conditions can cause “ sh kills, which are natural occurrences and typically do not cause permanent damage to the ecosystem or to “ sh populations. Many factors can contribute to a “ sh kill. Some “ sh kills are complex and involve a variety of factors that may not be easily discernable. However, most common causes of kills in brackish estuaries, freshwater lakes and man-made retention ponds are well understood by scientists. Fish kills are commonly caused by weather-related factors. Sudden temperature ” uctuations or extreme temperatures can result in “ sh kills any time of the year. Hot weather during the summer months can cause “ sh kills because warm water holds less oxygen than cold water. In addition, a lack of rain during hot-weather months lowers the water levels in the system, heating the water and further depleting the oxygen in the system. Fish kills also can occur during extended periods with little sunshine. The process leading to these types of die-offs begins with overcast skies and rainy weather. During extended periods of overcast, rainy or cloudy weather, the biological system uses the dissolved oxygen in the water faster than it can produce it. Rain water can compound the situation by causing vegetation, such as dead leaves and grass clippings, to wash into the system and decompose. The decomposition process also removes oxygen from the water. The good news is that most natural water bodies are resilient to these types of “ sh kill events. It is important for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) scientists to keep track of the location and extent of “ sh kills in natural lakes and estuaries to see if there are serious problems developing in an ecosystem that might require investigation or restorative measures. Residents can report “ sh kills in natural water bodies to the FWC at http://research.MyFWC.com/“ shkill/ submit.asp or call the FWC Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511. It is not necessary to report “ sh kills in man-made retention or private ponds to the FWC.

FWC Of“ cer Chris Jones, Of“ cer Jamie Holcomb and Of“ cer Matt Bell, assigned to Leon and Wakulla counties, reached the three men by boat. The WCSO received a call Tuesday morning, June 26, that the men were attempting to evacuate the home using their own vessel when the rapidly moving waters from the Sopchoppy River capsized the boat. The men were able to swim to a tree in the area of Persimmon Road and Deer Run Court and hang on while help arrived. FWC responded to the swift current and surgically removed each man from the tree,Ž said Wakulla County Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson of WCSO. The men were within minutes of death.Ž They told the of“ cers that they couldnt hold on much longer,Ž said FWC Capt. Donald Duval, who supervises several Big Bend counties including Wakulla. We were all there but our guys deserve all the credit.Ž Everyone did a phenomenal job,Ž said FWC Major Bruce Cooper, who supervises counties in Northern Florida from Jefferson to Escambia. This was a great example of all of the agencies working well together.Ž We have had excellent cooperation between all of the agencies as we address all of the concerns caused by Tropical Storm Debby,Ž said Emergency Management Director Nelson. As we all know, it is not a matter of if a natural disaster will strike, it is just a matter of when it will strike. We must always be prepared.Ž WCSO gets grant to target speeders and aggressive driversSpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce recently secured a $30,000 Summer Speed and Aggressive Driving grant to step up patrol activities from May to Sept. 30. The grant provides funding for off-duty law enforcement of“ cers to concentrate on cracking down on drunk drivers, aggressive drivers, speeding vehicles and motorcycle violators. We welcome our many summer visitors to Wakulla County, but we remind visitors and residents to be careful on the roads,Ž said Wakulla County Sheriff Donnie Crum. Dont drink and drive and follow the rules of the road.Ž During the summer months and holidays, an estimated 100,000 motorists, including heavy motorcycle traf“ c, travel to the coast and beyond using the same roadways that have dif“ culty handling the local traf“ c load during peak travel periods. The grant provides funding for off-duty of“ cers to work sobriety checkpoints starting in early July and multiple DUI saturation patrols will target drunk drivers in areas where they commonly drive. All the WCSO deputies have been trained to conduct “ eld sobriety exercises through the National Highway Traf“ c Safety Administration. The extra hours and funding will be used by not only off duty road patrol deputies but also school resource of“ cers who are away from their regular duty and off duty Criminal Investigation Division detectives. Deputies have found that speeding has become a bigger issue on the back roads as citizens attempt to get to their destination quicker by traveling less traveled roads. The Summer Speed and Aggressive Driving grant will target those speeders who are driving faster on lower speed residential roads. There will be extra attention paid to motorcycle riders obeying the traf“ c laws. Aggressive drivers who follow behind other motorists too closely and weave in and out of traf“ c will also be a focus. Sheriff Crum reminds motorists not to text message, read the newspaper, put on makeup or any other activity that will distract drivers while they operate their motor vehicles. We are hoping to have a safe and enjoyable summer while we continue to keep our traf“ c crashes and fatality statistics low,Ž he said. By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA lawsuit was filed last month to foreclose on a mortgage held by former County Administrator Parrish Barwick for more than $1.6 million. The lawsuit was “ led May 17 in Wakulla Circuit Court against Barwick, his wife Suzanna, and unknown tenants in possessionŽ of the property. The suit was filed by CADC/RADC Venture 2011-1 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. According to the complaint, a promissory note was executed in September 2008 on the property for $1.681 million. The lawsuit claims there has been a default in payment and declared the note to be due and payable. In addition to the $1.6 million, the lawsuit claims Barwick is liable for costs, fees and interest from the default. During his time as county administrator, Barwick was active in purchasing and selling real estate during the boom years, and concerns about his activities and the potential for con” ict of interest with his responsibilities as administrator led to him being pressured to leave the job by county commissioners. The real estate market went bust in 2006 when the bubbleŽ of in” ated prices for property burst … especially coastal property in Wakulla County. In other court activity: € CADC/RADC Venture 2011-1 LLC also “ led to foreclosure on a mortgage on the Buckhorn First property in Buckhorn owned by the Franklin family. In March 2009, Buckhorn First executed a promissory note for $970,000 on the property. The lawsuit claims there has been a default on payments and that the amount is due … plus costs, fees and interest as a result of the default. The lawsuit also filed separate counts against Eddie Franklin, Helen Franklin, Johnny Franklin and Freddy Franklin for breach of guaranty. The Franklin family was involved in the construction of Buckhorn Village in the Buckhorn community near Sopchoppy. € Wakulla has been assigned a new circuit judge … Charles Dodson will now handle responsibilities for Wakulla cases, including felony court and juvenile court. For the past year, Judge Jackie Fulford had the assignment, with Dodson covering some civil cases here. Chief Judge Charles Francis moved Fulford to Leon County, though she will continue to work on some Wakulla cases that she had during her tenure here, including the Wakulla Fishermen lawsuit against the State of Florida challenging net regulations.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 – Page 11AContinued from Page 6A How would you describe the average American? Is the average American black, white, yellow, red or a mixture of colors? Do you de“ ne an American by the color of his or her skin? What about gender? Is the average American male or female? Then there is age. How old is the average American? We bounced these questions around for a long time and did not come up with any good answers. Then there was silence. I come back to one thought; why cant we just be Americans. Why do we have to have all the emphasis on variations, colors, temperaments and the people we elect to of“ ce who cannot tie their own shoes without conducting some poll? Why cant we send ordinary, common sense Americans to Washington DC who understands the American life? Most of the politicians, if not all, live in a bubble and cannot relate to the average American in this country. I challenge these politicians to act like, live like common, everyday, normal Americans. We normal Americans have to live on a budget. If I do not have enough money, I have come to the end of my buying spree. I think this concept ought to be copyrighted and sent to Washington DC. It is a new concept. It will need somebody to interpret it to those who are living in that venomous circle that we call the capital of the United States. I would recommend a “ rst grader. It would be refreshing to have somebody in Congress or the Senate who had common sense. I guess Will Rogers was right when he said the problem with common sense is it is no longer common. A real American is one who is committed to the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A real American is one who embraces the red, white and blue. A real American is the one who can clutch his “ ve-dollar bill and say, in God we trust.Ž If it is good for our money, it is good for our life. If only the American people, the real people of America, would wake up and see what our politicians are doing, perhaps they would do what our early founders did. In celebrating another Fourth of July, my thought is simply, why not just be an American. A real American also embraces what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be GodsŽ (Luke 20:25 KJV). Is that the sound of a drumbeat I hear off in the distance? Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Bruce Ashley and wife Nina Banister Ashley lost their home, vehicles and most of their possessions when ” ooding romped through Crawfordville and Medart earlier this week. The water level rose to 7.5-feet deep inside their home and 12 feet deep outside the home. They have been using Scuba gear to recover items buried deep in the water. Lt. Ashley said he was “ nally able to get to his home on Sunday, July 1. The Ashleys were awakened by their animals very early Tuesday morning as the flood waters quickly engulfed their home. They were able to rescue their three cats and dog and swim to a boat. They lost a tractor, two personal vehicles and an agency vehicle in the ” ood as well as the vast majority of their possessions. We have ” ood insurance and family support so we will get back on our feet,Ž said Nina. But I know other people around us didnt have ” ood insurance. They were told they didnt need it.Ž The Ashleys and their neighbors do not live in a ” ood zone. Nina offered three recommendations for other families based on her professional experience with the state. Review your insurance policy and know what you have covered. Prepare in advance and have a water safe place for important documents, medications, pictures, records and pet information and have a plan for your family pets and carriers available nearby,Ž she said. It all happened so fast,Ž added Lt. Ashley. Lt. Ashley is a member of the Criminal Investigations Unit (CID) and Nina is employed by the Department of Financial Services. They are seeking a rental home until their can get back on their feet. Anyone who can assist the Ashleys with a rental should call Nina Ashley at 528-0032 or e-mail her at nina.banister@hotmail.com.Lt. Ashley loses home in storm, thankful has insuranceDebby from the readers point of viewSpecial to The NewsWakulla County has partnered with Waste Pro to assist ” ood victims with disposing of household storm debris. Waste Pro will have dumpsters set up at Sopchoppy City Park every day from noon to 5 p.m. until Friday, July 6 for ” ood victims only who need to dispose of their household debris resulting from Tropical Storm Debby. Waste Pro has agreed to this service at no cost. In addition, Waste Pro will continue to have the Lower Bridge Land“ ll open on Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. 3 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at a fee of $75 per ton. The county is hoping it will receive funding from FEMA which would pay a portion of the cost of debris removal and monitoring for residents affected by the storm. If the county doesnt get public assistance, residents will have to pay to take their debris to the land“ ll. Continued from Page 5A Evacuating from Sopchoppy to Crawfordville proved to be a challenge as roads were beginning to ” ood and of“ cials were shutting them down and not allowing passage. Soaking wet and in the pouring rain, he turned around and went to his friends house, the Solburgs, in Sopchoppy, and stayed put for the evening. The next day he was able to make it to Crawfordville by taking Highway 319 to Summer Camp and then U.S. Highway 98. He canoed back to his house on Wednesday to discover the water had in fact risen into the house about 4 feet. He paddled past the top of his carport. He visited the Salvation Army group and was given a couple of clean up kits, bottled water and a MRE (meals ready to eat), all of the items came in handy as there was no water to use for cleaning. His water was under water and not sanitary to use. Owen said he was very touched by the generosity of City of Sopchoppy Public Works Director Leonard Tartt who offered money from his own pocket. Owen declined the offer as he was not in need, but was truly touched by the gesture. Power was returned on Sunday, July 1, and he is thankful for all his friends. He is looking forward to life returning to normal.Evacuating Sopchoppy poses many challenges TOMMY OWEN/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAn eel greets Owen on his front porch after returning to his home. Continued from Page 5A We watched and waited and cooked and ate, all the while in disbelief at the amount of rainfall we were experiencing all over the county. Monday morning, I checked my email and the advisory stated the water could reach the following depths above ground at the times of high tide over the next few days. . Apalachee Bay to Waccasassa Bay. . 4 to 6 ft.Ž I thought about Dennis when we had 5 feet of water in our yard and what that meant in terms of loss and I headed back over to my house, fortunately with the help of my sister-in-law and her husband, to move tools and anything else that I could from downstairs to the main ” oor upstairs. I was beginning to feel very anxious and was hoping my husband and son were having a really good time because at this point I began to wonder why we decided it would be okay for them to leave. Finally I made it to work just before lunch time but in fishing shorts and a Tshirt. My sister-in-law said they had decided to stay the night at Shell Point again, but after looking at the tides, I decided to try to get a hotel room. Around 6 p.m., Niraj called and said they had a cancellation at Best Western. I was in. Complete with sandwiches and soft drinks, I arrived at the hotel during what was still a downpour. After dropping my bag in my room, I joined my friends so we could eat our sandwiches and catch the next advisory to see how Debby was doing. We were checking our Facebooks and emails and really not stressing too much, so decided we would open a bottle of wine to share. Having no wine key, we decided to go just the few blocks up 98 to Dollar General and get ice cream and a corkscrew. The employees were standing in front of the store under the overhang so we asked if they were open. One of the three guys said the ceiling had caved in from the weight of the water so they were closed. Shocked, we decided to go a little further to the gas station at the V of 319 and 98. 319 had been closed heading toward Sopchoppy. We had heard the bridge was compromised or ” ooded but I still dont think the reality of the severity of what was happening was setting in yet. Once inside, we located the ice cream and looked for the wine key, we paid for our goods and left. It was just starting to get dark when we arrived back at the hotel. The power began ” ickering on and off and after about an hour, the power was out altogether and we were in the dark with our cell phone ” ashlights. My sisterin-law called and said they had left Shell Point because the water was about calf-high in the yard and they didnt want to risk the cars getting ” ooded. Tuesday morning about 6:30 I woke up, looking forward to a nice hot shower and a cup of coffee before heading either to work or to check on my house, depending on what happened with Debby during the night, but the power was still out. I took a not all the way cold but not warm either shower and headed to Crawfordville. The standing water on my route was unbelievable. I had received a text message from News editor Bill Snowden that there was no power at the of“ ce. Hardees had power so I got coffee and biscuits and tried to think of our emergency plan. After reviewing what I said we would do in an emergency, I quickly surmised it would not be what we would be doing for this emergency. We located an available of“ ce space with power and internet (thank you Petra) and set up temporary shop there until the power came back on at the of“ ce. We did get water in the yard at my home and the door jams swelled from the constant pounding of water and the humidity, and I had an army of some sort of large black ants with wings that Ive never seen before seeking refuge just inside the house, but we were very fortunate not to have taken the brunt of this storm on the coast where I live. Unfortunately some of our neighbors on the rivers were not so fortunate and our hearts go out to them as they recover what they can and look toward repairing and rebuilding in the future.Bar“ eld has own adventure Why not just be an American Dumpsters for storm debris at Sopchoppy City Park 8921 Woodville Hwy.

The routes cover different sections of Wakulla County from the upper St. Marks River area to Sopchoppy and Panacea and locations in Crawfordville. The ERVs have water, meals, clean up kits, bug spray, tarps, sunscreen, rubber gloves, rakes, shovels and more. Red Cross Outreach Teams are in the community addressing other needs including nursing, mental health and family service needs. € The Wakulla County Health Department is placing mosquito pellets in standing water and has been spraying pockets of the county for the insects. Well and septic tank inspection teams are beginning to canvas the area to inspect the impacted areas. If a well casing was submerged during the ” ooding, the well is more than likely contaminated, said Keith Lawhon of the health department. In that case, residents are told to boil their water or use bottled water until it can be tested and decontaminated. Lawhon said there are well testing kits at the health department or someone on staff can come do the inspection for $30. € There are several locations with major infrastructure damage that will likely remain closed for a longer period of time: Surf Road at Buckhorn Creek; Smith Creek Road at Syfrette Creek; Bostic Pelt Road at Lost Creek Culvert; and potentially both bridges over the Sopchoppy River (Smith Creek Road and Rose Street). As of 7 p.m. on July 2, both bridges over the Sopchoppy River have been inspected by dive teams from the Florida Department of Transportation and have been re-opened to traf“ c. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said his staff is still in response mode and still has lots to do. Fleming said the bridge on Highway 22 or Surf Road will be an easy “ x once the bridge is inspected. Response Statistics (storm total to date): 17 water rescues, 67 people rescued. 131 responses for trees down. 92 responses for power lines down. 45 traf“ c control points for ” ooded roadways.

Taking Care of Business B u s i n e s s N e w s f r o m Business News from Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012By AMY GEIGERChamber PresidentDear Chamber Members, Summer is here a time of year for family vacations, backyard barbecues, breaks from school and pleasant evenings spent with family and friends. All of those things make for a great summerƒ However, this time of year also brings hurricane season and it goes without saying our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of our county. I know each and every one of us is either feeling the aftermath of Tropical Storm Debby either personally or through friends and family. It makes me proud to see our community come together to help those in need. I recently came across this article which I would like to share with each of you and especially those who want to help move the Chamber forward. BEING A CHAMBER MEMBER … WHAT DOES IT MEAN? It means getting and staying involved. It means speaking your mind on important issues that affect your business and all business. Membership in the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce means meeting other business people from the area and working collectively to accomplish whatever is necessary for business to survive, indeed to thrive, in this community. Chamber membership is not only paying your dues once a year. Chamber membership provides an opportunity for you to get involved in the form of things to come. It is an opportunity to shape a newer, more vibrant economic region, attuned to the needs of its business community and its citizenry. Joining with the Chamber means being a leader in the business community, speaking about and for small and big business, their concerns and needs. We understand that leadership entails responsibility, time and effort. We understand that your commitment of time and effort is valuable because it is given freely. We also have a commitment ƒ to maximize your impact by speaking and acting through our strength in numbers, and through listening to your needs, and to your creativity. I hope after reading this excerpt, you will be inspired to make a difference and become more involved with your Chamber. We can accomplish so much with your help! As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chamber President. Yours in Service, Amy Geiger, President.What it means to be a Chamber member By PETRA SHUFFof the ChamberA big thank you goes to Kathy Hallowell with Arte Mexico for laying the groundwork and acting as our interpreter for our networking luncheon on June 27, and the Carranza family for hosting at La Parrillada. Despite the persistent tropical depression hanging over us for days, and the damage it did to Wakulla (and other regions in Florida), we were pleased to host 51 attendees. Mary thanked everyone for coming, and reiterated that these events are to get to know other Chamber members better, and to network with business owners. Our new members for June were announced: Keith McNeill Plumbing, Panhandle Pizza. St. Marks Refuge Association Inc., Barksdale Custom Pools Inc., and AFLAC agent Willie Mae Peterkin Musgray. Jeff Dora, owner, told us about recently opened Panhandle Pizza. This business has had a location in Woodville for about two and a half years now, and expanded in Crawfordville. The concept is a little different … your pizza will be topped with ingredients of your choice, right there in front of you, and then you take it home and bake it. This way you get it bubbling hot, with a crispy and not a soggy crust. Panhandle also serves subs and salads for takeout. As a special incentive to try them out, Jeff offered attending Chamber members a $5 discount on pizzas purchased through June 30. Panhandle Pizza is located in the Dykes Shopping Center across from Ace Hardware. Also joining us was new member Latonya Thomas with Crawfordville Walgreens. Latonya has been at the Crawfordville location for six months, and is excited to get more involved with the Chamber and in the community. Together with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Walgreens announced a new effort to “ ght heart disease with Million Hearts Initiative in Washington, D.C.

Today is one of those days that doesnt rate that high on the happiness scale. For one thing it is dark and gloomy outside with tornado watches blaring on TV and from my weather radio. My roof, which was repaired this winter, is now leaking over top of my bed. I have covered it with plastic and placed a kettle to catch the drips. Bee Bee Baloo, my new kitten, “ nds this fascinating. An indoor kitty, he is having his “ rst experience with rain. I hope it remains limited to drops from my ceiling and not a downpour. He loves the feel of the plastic bunching up under him as he spins around chasing his tail. When he tires of that he perches on a pillow and tries to catch the drips with his tiny paw. This would ordinarily amuse me, but Bee Bee himself is a worry. He has some, as yet undiagnosed, skin condition, manifested by lumps on both shoulders that turn into sores. He takes his medicine like a little trooper and resigns himself to his daily bath and ointment applications, but has not improved. Today he goes on some new medication. I worry about him, while he frolics happily, enjoying the ” ooding of my bed. Then theres Nurse Judy, my fashion conscious alter ego. She ordered some new clothes on-line and they arrived today. Sadly they do not “ t. Of course, they are too small, since she has been eating too much delicious prime rib at the Quincy Golf Club. She heatedly denies that shes put on any weight, explaining the clothing problems as too long waisted or improper labeling, but I know the truth. She had hoped to wear her new clothes and go somewhere exciting over the Fourth of July holiday. With a leaky roof, a sick kitten and tornado warnings, Im not sure of the feasibility of a holiday excursion. I try to discuss this with her, but she does not wish to hear me. I, myself, am feeling out of sorts and decidedly un“ t from those same Friday night dinner outings. I notice I get a little out of breath just walking to pick up my mail. I vow to put Nurse Judy and me on a diet. When I tell her, she laughs. Youve been on a diet your whole life, and what good has it done you? Youre as plump as a peacock and look like a frumpy old woman.Ž I know shes right, but I do want to improve. I mull this over. Peacocks are pretty,Ž I “ nally say. Frumpy old women arent,Ž she snaps back, and Im not going on a diet.Ž We could exercise more,Ž I say. We could go swimming a lot this summer.Ž She looks at me. You cant swim,Ž she says. Thats true. Well, we could take water aerobics.Ž Youre so fat you wont let anyone see you in a swimsuit,Ž she retorts. Right again. This really is a down day. Bee Bee stops his hi-jinx and comes over and jumps up in my lap. He looks up in my face, before curling up for a snooze, as if to say, I think youre pretty.Ž I relax. Down days are parts of life. Eventually, the sun will come out and beautiful Florida weather will be back. Bee Bees skin condition will clear up. The roof will be repaired. Nurse Judy will “ nd some clothes she “ ts into. Ill go on a diet so I can “ t into something besides just my shoes. We still may be able to take a little vacation. Cheer up,Ž I say. Better times are on the way. Remember, into each life, some rain must fall.Ž Nurse Judy looks at me, not completely molli“ ed. Yeah, but it shouldnt be on our bed,Ž she says.

By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 29 … A much-anticipated ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court sucked the air out of the room this week as all eyes turned to the nations high court, which bucked odds makers and rejected Floridas challenge to President Barack Obamas ambitious health care overhaul. A 5-4 decision, which came the last day of its current term, ended weeks of prognostication, posturing and expectation over the sweeping decision that, for now at least, shifts the course of health care delivery in the United States. Anticipating a different decision, Republican of“ cials rolled out the Florida and U.S. ” ags and set up a podium for an anticipated press event lauding the high court for striking down what has been called Obamacare, even by Obama supporters. Instead, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi ascended the steps of the Old Capitol to tell a bank of cameras and reporters of her extreme disappointment that Floridas lawsuit challenging the federal governments ability to require citizens to carry health insurance was defeated by the slimmest of margins. Bondis lament was echoed throughout Republican ranks in Tallahassee and across the state as analysts combed through the 193-page labyrinth of a ruling marked by shifting alliances and the surprising and pivotal action of one of the courts more conservative justices. This is going to be devastating to our economy,Ž Gov. Rick Scott told reporters hours after the ruling. Probably more importantly, it is going to be devastating to patients. If you look at every government program in the world, they overpromise, they run out of money, they underpay providers and that rations care,Ž Scott said. On top of that, as bad as it is for patients, its going to be just as bad for taxpayers. Were not going to be able to afford this.Ž Critics of the Affordable Care Act took solace in at least one part of the ruling: Florida and other states would not be held hostage over federal Medicaid funds should they decide not to expand Medicaid coverage to include nearly all individuals under 133 percent of poverty, or about $30,000 for a family of four. Florida of“ cials have long complained that the state can barely afford to pay for Medicaid now, and taking on new enrollees could bankrupt it, even if Washington will pick up 90 percent of the cost. They then turned their attention to November, saying the battle over who pays for health care now shifts from the courts to the polls. The American people will have their say in November,Ž Bondi said. And I am con“ dent that they will join me in rejecting a law that is so harmful to individual liberty, to our economy, and to the welfare of our people.Ž OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: BLACK ROBES Nearly all the news surrounding state government this week came out of some court or other. A federal judge in Tallahassee rejected an effort to bar the state from resuming a voter purge that is already on hold, issuing a ruling that could severely undermine the U.S. Department of Justices lawsuit against an initiative aimed at removing suspected non-citizens from the election rolls. At the same time, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said his ruling not to issue an injunction was driven in part by assurances from the state that it would not forward any more names to county elections supervisors based on a list of potentially ineligible voters that even the state concedes is inaccurate. That list is drawn from drivers license and voter-registration records. Meanwhile in a different case involving elections law, the state and the opponents of a suspended law dealing with third party voter registration are moving toward a settlement over the new rules, both sides said this week. Circuit judges meanwhile, wrangled over other issues including online travel and prison health privatization efforts. The first case involves whether online travel companies should pay taxes on the entire cost of their service or just on the discounted rates they pay hotels. The other lawsuit is a dispute over prison health privatization. The Florida Nurses Association and a state employees union “ led a lawsuit this year challenging the constitutionality of the Legislatures decision to use the budgets “ ne print, known as proviso language, to direct the Department of Corrections to contract with private health companies. That case may be moot, however, as the proviso language outlining the privatization effort expires June 30. CUBA LAW BARRED, FOR NOW A Miami federal judge temporarily blocked enforcement of a new law that would prevent the state and local governments from contracting with companies that have business links to Cuba. U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore said Odebrecht Construction Inc., which filed a lawsuit early this month, had demonstrated a substantial likelihood of successŽ that the law violates the federal constitution. The law would prevent companies from receiving government contracts of $1 million or more if they do business in Cuba or are af“ liated with “ rms that do business there. Odebrecht, a Coral Gables-based “ rm, argues that the law is unconstitutional because it intrudes on the federal governments powers to set foreign policy. STORY OF THE WEEK; U.S. Supreme Court upholds Affordable Care Act but says federal government cant withhold Medicaid funds if states balk on additional coverage. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of of“ ce if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.Ž Justice John Roberts in the opinion upholding the Affordable Care Act. Page 4B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comWEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Roberts rules of orderBy DAVID ROYSE THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 29 … During his time as attorney general of Florida, Bill McCollum boosted the states efforts to “ ght child predators and developed a law enforcement strategy to reduce gang violence. But on the issue that would have set his legacy in the nations legal history, McCollum came up just short this week when the U.S. Supreme Court narrowly rejected his argument that the nations new health care law was unconstitutional. Despite any successes he had in his time as attorney general and in a long career in Congress, this will no doubt be the story,Ž McCollum acknowledged in an interview this week. There are many things as attorney general Im very proud of,Ž said McCollum, now a partner at the D.C. law “ rm SNR Denton. Obviously, people will remember this decision more.Ž McCollum “ led the challenge to the new health care law the day the bill was signed into law in March of 2010, and was quickly joined in the lawsuit by several other attorneys general. But he and lawyers in his of“ ce were looking closely at the health care law even as the bill was being drafted … though McCollum was most concerned at “ rst only with the actual policy rami“ cations, including its cost to states. During the debate over this I knew this law was trouble for the states,Ž said McCollum, who wrote members of Congress urging them not to pass it. But the idea for suing to block it on constitutional grounds came, McCollum said, when he read an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by constitutional lawyers David Rivkin and Lee Casey, who wrote in 2009 that they believed the law went beyond the powers granted to Congress. McCollum assigned lawyers in his of“ ce to follow that line of thinking, and began talking to several other Republican attorneys general. We concluded on our own that this was something I wanted to do, that this was important,Ž McCollum said. He later hired Rivkin and Casey to represent the state in the case. He says even as it was “ led, he thought it likely would go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. His initial public statements against the law were on cost to the states and to individuals, but he also argued publicly when announcing the lawsuit the issue that eventually would actually end up saving the law … he argued that it was essentially a tax, which is what the Supreme Court “ nally decided as well. The Supreme Court said that type of taxing authority was within Congress rights, but McCollum had posited in 2010 that Congress was going too far, and didnt have the power to tax people just for living in the country. It wasnt a tax related to any particular behavior … but rather to doing nothing, by not buying health insurance. It forces people to buy something, in the sense of buying a health care policy or pay a penalty, a tax or a fine that simply the Constitution does not allow Congress to do,Ž McCollum said at the time. McCollum drew some criticism in taking on the law … which was already wildly unpopular with Republicans … because he was running for governor, and some saw the move as trying to boost his chances. In August, McCollum would lose the Republican primary to now-Gov. Rick Scott. McCollum said Thursday he obviously was disappointed in the ruling, but proud of the legal team that took on the law. It was a very good argument,Ž McCollum said. Four of the justices would have taken the whole law out.

Hodge Genevieve Granny Pearl Horne Yuba Hubble Nilsen Taking Care of Taking Care of BusinessBusiness News Business News from from See Page 1B Melisa Taylor is running for school board, District 2 By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netClerk of Courts Brent Thurmond said this week that, because of a seven percent budget cut, he will shorten of ce hours at the clerks of- ce to 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The change took effect July 1 with the start of the new scal year. Thurmond noted that his office has faced numerous budget cuts, saying that So far, they havent had much impact on how services are delivered to the public. Thurmond said he had reacted to past cuts with some personnel lay-offs and furloughs. This latest cut, though, left clerks throughout the state without enough money to fully operate their of ces and most are cutting their business hours. Thurmond said theres a legislative meeting set for July 12 that could restore the funding to clerks, and that perhaps the shortened hours will be a temporary matter. Im trying not to do anything too permanent until they decide whether to sh or cut bait, Thurmond said of the July 12 budget meeting. So this could be a two week thing or all throughout the year starting July 1. I would just ask people to bear with us, Thurmond said. This wont affect emergencies or things like jurors who have to report in earlier. But, he said, there wont be walk-in or phone-in services for the public except between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.Debby is gone; destruction lingersClerks office shortens hoursChange due to budget cuts, says Clerk Brent ThurmondBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netMelisa Taylor announces her candidacy for the Wakulla County School Board, District 2. She will challenge incumbent Mike Scott in a race to be decided in the Aug. 14 election. Taylor, who has been an educator since 1984 and has been at Wakulla High School for the last 12 years, said that running for school board is a natural expansion on her commitment to students and residents of the community where I may broaden my impact, contributions, and education expertise to our entire district. As a teacher at Wakulla High, Ive walked side-byside with the students, teachers, and administrators on a daily basis, she said. I know what struggles each must overcome to be the most effective at their daily roles. I know what concerns parents most in our schools and how to create a more cohesive and seamless dialogue between parents and school of cials. My contributions and daily interaction with all levels of school administration, students and parents gives me a unique perspective. In her education career, Taylor has worked in public and private education ranging from Orange and Seminole county schools to teaching for a private company that served teen actors on movie and television sets. Additionally, she has taught at Valencia Community College and Tallahassee Community College, but said she found a real home in Wakulla High School over the last 12 years. She has served as English teacher and department head, Senior Class Sponsor, National Honor Society Sponsor, Writing Coordinator, Advanced Placement Language and Composition Teacher, AVID Site Team Member, Mentor Teacher, Teacher Recruiter, and New Teacher Trainer. As a National Board Certi- ed Teacher and owner of The Learning Curve Tutoring Center, she has spent many years studying and investigating strategies for increasing student learning and success and plans to bring this experience to the of ce of School Board. At the same time as a new superintendent is coming in, I do think its the perfect time for new energized blood to come in to the school board, Taylor said. I am extremely proud of how much my hard work and the dedication of our Wakulla County teachers has resulted in Wakulla County Schools being named an Academically High Performing District, Taylor said. As teachers, we devote countless hours in college courses, professional development and internships in an effort to bring the most helpful and concise information to students, with great expense to us personally. However, we do it because we love the students and feel called to provide them with the best education possible to help prepare them for successful college and career experiences. Continued on Page 3A Melisa TaylorStaff ReportAlthough Wakulla County has yet to be declared a disaster area, Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson expects it to happen any day. In order for the county to receive help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a disaster declaration needs to come from the president. Gov. Rick Scott has requested the declaration from the president for individual assistance from the federal government. A request for public assistance has not been made. Federal and state preliminary damage assessment teams were in the county on Friday, June 29 and Saturday, June 30. These teams are assessing damages in both government and citizen categories to determine the countys eligibility for federal disaster aid. Although the county has yet to be declared, Nelson urged citizens who have been affected to not wait on the declaration to begin clean up. We expect to be declared, but theres no guarantee FEMA will be there, Nelson said in an emergency called meeting on July 2 by the Wakulla County Commission. Nelson said the important thing for citizens to do is to start the process of removing the damaged items from their homes. If someone has insurance, go ahead and make a claim, he said. And document everything. Most of the ood waters have started to recede and most of the roads that were once closed are passable, he said. The Emergency Management Of ce has also scaled back its operations. At one time during and after the storm, Wakulla County had the help of the National Guard, Florida Highway Patrol and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, he said. A lot of work was done by a lot of folks in this county, he said. Brad Harvey with the Property Appraisers Of ce gave an update on the local damage. There are 413 structures in the county that were affected by the storm totaling $9 million, he said. Out of these, 106 sustained major damages. About 40 homes were completely destroyed. The homes that received the most damage or destroyed were mainly in the Sopchoppy area on the Sopchoppy River. There are still flooding issues in the Woodland Drive area in Crawfordville and Fair Way in Medart. U.S. Highway 98 is still partially ooded near Fair Way and the Wildwood Country Club. Crews have kept the road open to one lane for more than one week. Local Impacts: The floodwaters along the rivers and creeks continue to fall. Areas along the Sopchoppy and upper St. Marks rivers are now accessible. The ponding of water from random sinkholes seems to have stabilized in the southern portion of the county. Water continues to rise in the Woodland Drive area. However, the rate of rise has slowed over the last 24 hours. This morning, western portions of the county, along the Ochlockonee River, received an estimated .75 to 1 inch of rainfall, the central portions of the county received an estimated .05 inches and the western portions of the county received an estimated 0.1 inches of rainfall.

Continued from Page 1A Just as I have felt called to teach all these years, I now feel called to contribute to the education of our students in a more comprehensive way. While Taylor is certain Wakulla County will continue to be a high scoring district because of the commitment of the teachers in our schools, she says the challenges we will face in the upcoming years will be more vast and require a deep understanding of the inner workings of the schools and classrooms to overcome the numerous unfunded mandates that continue to lter down into our county through federal and state legislation. To additionally prepare for the position of school board member Taylor completed the Wakulla County School Board Education Leadership training offered in 2010-11 to have a more thorough understanding of the many facets that make up Wakulla County Schools. She met with each department of our school system -from transportation and food services to risk management and the of ce of Chief Financial Officer. Additionally, she attended union negotiation meetings between the district and teachers. I understand that we are in tough economic times, she said. However, I also know it has been dif cult for teachers and school employees to pay for their own classroom supplies and professional development. Teachers have not received a pay increase since 2007-08 for either professional experience or cost of living, said Taylor. School employees have really felt the economic crunch since before the economic downturn started. She refuted the school boards contention that employees have been held harmless with increases in medical insurance, noting that single insurance rate coverage went up over $200 a year while family insurance rates went up over $500 per year. I believe its important to have an accurate picture of what we can do to keep our schools the best we can be by recruiting and keeping the best teachers, Taylor said. It may not be possible to give teachers raises at this time, but it will be my responsibility to teachers and taxpayers to provide the best for all parties of our county. Taylor said she believes its important as a school board member to be out in the schools on a weekly basis to truly understand the needs of students and teachers. You need to be in the schools to see the challenges faced by teachers, administrators and students, she said. She plans to continue lling several of the needs she lled as a fulltime employee of Wakulla High School as a volunteer, sponsoring clubs and activities in which she is currently involved, plus volunteering as a substitute teacher several hours per month. I believe I need to earn the pay that accompanies the responsibilities of school board member and be sure to stay connected with each of the schools and their administration on a regular basis, Taylor said. It has been a pleasure to work with David Miller and Beth ODonnell and both of the principals at Wakulla High School and I just hope to be able to continue working for the people of Wakulla County, she said. Taylor has been a resident of Wakulla County since 1996. She is married to Larry Taylor, a 1977 graduate of Wakulla High. They have two sons, Justin and Marshall Taylor, who both graduated from Wakulla High and Florida State University. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper.

Political BriefsDecrease in revenue expectedBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe anticipated decrease in revenue from this current scal year to the next is 1.49 percent, if the millage rate remains at 8.50 mills. This equates to $130,241. Deputy Administrator Tim Barden said the current proposed budget is perfectly balanced with the Wakulla County Commission keeping the millage rate 8.50 mills. The budget will be turned over to the commission on July 15 who will then tweak it before approving it. County Commissioner Mike Stewart said he would like to see other options for the millage rate, such as 8.25 mills. Id like for us to push for us to lower it, Stewart said. Stewart said the only reason he voted to levy the Public Services Tax last year was because the commission said it would make an effort to reduce the millage rate. We owe it to the people to lower it, Stewart said. Commissioner Alan Brock said the county has reduced expenditures and with the current millage rate, it is also able to continue to put money into reserves. County Administrator David Edwards said at the current millage rate, he and his staff have compiled a balanced budget. We are far from healthy, Edwards said. Weve got to have a healthy government. Edwards said there are no raises in the proposed budget or tax increases and the plan is to keep the millage rate at 8.50 until 2017 to build up the reserves. The county can start rolling back the millage later in 2017, he said. He is working on a ve year plan for the county so increases or decreases in millage and taxes are controlled and planned, as opposed to decreasing the millage rate one year and increasing it the next. Were living within our means, Edwards said. Were paying for sins of the past, Commissioner Randy Merritt said. Commissioner Alan Brock said four years ago the county commission lowered taxes when the economy was good and know the current commission is trying to clean it up. Commissioner Jerry Moore was in favor of lowering the millage rate to 8.25 mills and said people cant afford to pay more taxes. Were running a business, Moore said. Brock interjected and said, Were running a government. Moore rephrased his comment and said, Government should run like a business. He said he would not vote for any new programs, consultants or visioning. Edwards said the county is holding the lines on expenses. In the proposed budget, general fund expenditures have increased by 4.46 percent, or $882,092. This is due to an increase in the sheriffs budget because of a new medical contract with Armour and an increase in health insurance; an increase in the planning department because it had a full year salary for the planning director; an increase in the emergency medical services department because of an additional third shift supervisor position and two EMT positions; increase in the extension of ce department because of adjustments in the directors salary; parks and recreation department budget increased because of a parks and recreation director position; an increase in the county administrations budget because of a full year of a county administrators salary; and an increase in the facilities management budget for emergency repairs and preventative maintenance.Melisa Taylor is running for school board FAIR HOUSING PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETINGWakulla County will conduct a Fair Housing training on Monday, July 16, 2012 during a regular County Commission meeting which begins at 5:00 p.m. in the Wakulla County Commission Chambers, 29 Arran Road, Crawfordville, Florida 32327.

One important factor is where the candidate lives, works, and plays. Since our House District includes 10 counties, a direct tie to Wakulla County will surely improve our representation. With that in mind, I researched the Wakulla County property records and only one of the Republican candidates owns property in our fair county. That person is Halsey Beshears. In fact, both he and his brother own property in Wakulla County. According to the Wakulla County Property Appraiser, in 2011, together they paid property taxes on $213,657 which signi cantly supported our county government and schools. While neither of the Beshears brothers claim Wakulla County as their home, their ties to our county are strong. I hope the readers use this small bit of information to help make a determination of who to support in the upcoming elections. When voting, there is a massive amount of information to evaluate about each candidate; but I doubt many people know Halsey Beshears had strong ties to Wakulla County well before he decided to enter the arena of politics. Ed Brimner Realtor CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: As I write this letter, assessments of the impact of Tropical Storm Debby are still being conducted and many Wakulla residents are still in recovery mode. Id like to make a few observations on our communitys response to this event from a citizens perspective. As this significant weather event unfolded, the internet was my information lifeline. Some news outlets and certain public of cials and particular government entities were better conduits of information than others. The relative dearth of reliable, timely information seemed to leave many residents resorting to informal modes of communication and the veracity of information received was never entirely certain. In such a time of community crisis, accurate information can literally make the difference between life and death. We are so fortunate to have emerged, to date, from this event without loss of life in Wakulla. Without diminishing the very real impact of property damage on at least 75 area homes, Id like to consider this event a dress rehearsal and a wake up call for our government entities and media outlets. If a regular citizen wants information and is not somehow plugged into an of cial entity, where do they turn for accurate and reliable information? The Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce is one such news source and the timeliness of their updates via their website and Facebook improved as the emergency unfolded. The Wakulla Board of County Commissioners posted updates and sent out emails with situation updates. Commissioner Mike Stewart posted updates on his Facebook page. Commissioner Alan Brock used Facebook and Twitter to send community updates. Wakulla.com was a good source of updates, despite the Westmarks evacuation from their own home. WCTV and WTXL also provided real time information on their websites and Facebook pages. To a lesser extent, the Tallahassee Democrat was providing online updates as well. However, I was particularly struck by Tallahassee Democrat editor Bob Gabordis response to my comment on his blog titled, Our team is ready for whatever Debby brings. Rachel Sutz Pienta: Any possibility of doing livestream updates and maybe remote feeds? Your election coverage in 2010 was cool stuff. Could you embed a staffer in the Wakulla EOC for coastal updates? June 25 at 12:54 p.m. Gabordi: Good idea. Lets see where the storm tracks. It appears to be moving away. June 25 at 1:54 p.m. June 25 was Monday. Lowlying coastal areas in Wakulla had already been under evacuation orders for close to a day. Homes were already ooded. In Wakulla, Debby, for all extents and purposes, was already here. Monday night would bring more ooding and more evacuations in Wakulla. I think the Democrat missed the boat pun intended on Debby coverage by not implementing the full coverage Gabordi discussed in his blog. How can residents who lose power or do not have internet access in their homes receive vital information during an emergency? I would like to see the newly created GoWakulla Mobile App be utilized for emergency communication purposes. Wakulla-speci c text message alerts would be helpful. On Tuesday, a Wakulla speci c alert was broadcast over the emergency radio system. The system could have been utilized earlier to broadcast critical information such as the evacuation orders. Finally, I want to say thank you to all the county staff the county administration, Public Works staff, WCSO personnel and emergency responders who all performed above and beyond the call of duty and are still putting in long hours on recovery efforts. Rachel Sutz Pienta CrawfordvilleREADERS WRITE:Halsey Beshears has Wakulla tiesWhen theres breaking news, go to Wakulla News website Editor, The News: We would like to say a public thank you to the FWC of cers, Chris Jones, Jamie Holcomb and Mat Bell, for the spectacular rescue made June 26, on the Sopchoppy River. After checking on a residence in the Deer Run Court area, our boat caught on a fence and quickly capsized in the raging river. Clinging to bushes and standing on fence posts, using a water proof cell phone, a 911 call resulted in the prompt response of these three officers. There was unimaginable relief when we heard the air boats crank in the distance. We were on land within 45 minutes of our 911 call. The officers were very skilled and professional. They got the job done. We thank God for their help and His mercy. Bobby Connell, Bobby Stafford, Joe Stafford Tallahassee and Crawfordville Okay, so the health care mandate was upheld so how much broccoli does that mean I have to buy to be in compliance? By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netI got a Letter to the Editor on Friday from Rachel Sutz Pienta about the availability of online information from various news sources during Tropical Storm Debby. Some news organizations and sources were better than others, she wrote, and went on to name each website she turned to for news of the storm area TV stations, newspapers and sites. But she never mentioned The Wakulla News and our website, thewakullanews. com. So I wrote back to ask her why. Rachel, I notice you dont mention The Wakulla News as a source. We were updating the website regularly throughout the storm with information, beginning with the evacuation notice for low-lying areas on Sunday evening and continuing with updates today. Are you not aware we are online? or did you feel that the information was not timely? She replied: Bill I have to say that although I have a home print subscription that in the past the online info was not really timely so I stopped considering the News as a real time source of updates. I did not look at all at your site during Debby because of this. So to other readers who may not be aware: whenever there is some sort of breaking news, we work to get it online as quickly as possible. And during emergencies such as Tropical Storm Debby, we are updating the story and posting new stories as quickly as we get them. Stories on emergency situations hurricanes, disasters, and the like are free. That means you dont have to be a subscriber to get access to information we have online. During Debby, we posted weather updates from the National Weather Service and information from Scott Nelson at Wakulla Emergency Management almost as soon as we received it whatever information on the storm that readers might need or nd helpful. And the stories were posted on the home page usually in the Breaking News box, or, in the case of the evacuation order or the boiled water notice, in a Breaking Banner across the top of the page so you didnt have to search for it. It is true, as Rachel points out, that on a regular news week, when there are no tropical storms bearing down on us, the website may not be updated daily. But if there is a breaking story, were going to put it online as quickly as possible and update as often as necessary to get the news to you. Check our website rst at thewakullanews.com.William Snowden is the editor of The Wakulla News. Editor, The News: I want to thank the people on Carraway Cutoff who gave us permission to use their eld to get in and our of property. I want to tell them how much we appreciate the gesture, and thank them for being so nice. Mary Posey CrawfordvilleSpending money at airport is bad ideaEditor, The News:Airport Expansion: Throwing Good Money After Bad. The Wakulla County airport reportedly serves less than 5 percent of its capacity, mainly from pilots in the Tarpine subdivision. It has a lighted grass airstrip on 13 acres, and the county covers operating costs, since, like most small airports, it does not pay for itself. Airport proponents want commissioners to use $3.6 million from a state grant to buy 32 acres, a private hanger, pave a lengthened runway, and build a taxiway, more hangers, add lighting and big gasoline tanks. If expansion will most certainly increase operating costs, should commissioners spend our taxes to subsidize the hobby of a few pilots? Proponents argue expansion will create jobs, but theres no evidence of that. The airport is on Ochlockonee Bay far from most Wakulla County people. Moreover, the airstrip is landlocked by Surf Road, U.S. Highway 98, and homes and churches. There is no room to grow in order to compete with neighboring airports twice the size. Furthermore, the runway is in a coastal oodplain, where, last week, it was underwater, and, this week, the new runway site is still a swamp. Is there any reason for building where land is boxed in, and so low and wet that home builders must build 20 feet above the ground? If commissioners want a profitable airport, they should consider high, dry and open areas of land close to the people. Spending millions of dollars on the Tarpine airstrip is throwing good money after bad.William Anderson Surf Road resident anks to FWC o cers for rescue anks to Carraway Cuto residents Editor, The News:I have known Mike Williams for 53 years.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 Page 5AThe News also faced challenges with DebbyBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netTuesdays are deadline days for The Wakulla News, and I usually start Tuesdays pretty early, getting to the of ce around 6:30 in the morning to get the newspaper out by 7 p.m. Last Tuesday, though, I came in to nd the electricity in the News of ce was off. I wrote some news items on my laptop, but it became apparent that the electricity wasnt coming back on anytime soon. I texted General Manager Tammie Bar eld, who had been evacuated from her coastal home, and Eric Stanton, the newspapers graphic artist and IT guy, about what we should do and whether we needed to look for a remote location with power and internet to get the paper out. 8 a.m. Tammie came in to the of ce after a night at the Best Western in Medart, where theyd lost power about 8 p.m. the previous night and it was still off. A Progress Energy work crew pulled up on the road outside the of ce, and a worker told her that he expected the electricity to be out until at least 2 p.m., maybe later. Petra Shuff said the Chamber of ce had electricity and internet and said we were welcome to set up there. Eric had come in to the of ce and, joined by reporter Jennifer Jensen, we started pulling wires and loading computers and terminals and scanners and cables into cars to run up to the Chamber. Around 9 a.m. we were trying to reassemble the computer network system in a conference room at the old courthouse. Jennifer was writing out her news stories in longhand. Around 10 a.m., we were still struggling to get the system up and running we kept crashing, and taking the Chamber internet down too. It was after 11 a.m. when receptionist Denise Folh called us from The News of ce to say power was back up and we proceeded to break everything down, load it up and move it back to The News. By noon we were back online with our systems running and recognizing that we needed to revise our backup plan. Thanks to Petra for the offer of help, and letting us impose on her. Tropical Storm Debby a ects many Debby from the readers point of view Home oods near Wildwood days after Debby leavesSpecial to The NewsCheri Morgan woke up on Wednesday morning, June 27, to nd water was an inch away from entering her house. She lives on the fairway next to Wildwood Golf Course. She had to evacuate so she put her bathing suit on, put what belongings she could ll in a plastic container, along with her little dog, Captain Morgan, who was nally a captain of his own vessel, oated her belongings and waded waste high across the front lawn and evacuated to a friends house. The subdivision has underwater utilities so the power company turned the power off to the neighborhood for their own safety. As of Tuesday morning, one week later, the water has not drained enough for power to be returned and water is still in the garage but has drained from inside the house. She said living on the golf course she sometimes worries about flying golf ball, but never worried about ooding. She was very appreciative of the items the American Red Cross provided for clean up and comfort along with the advise and support. The Wakulla County Sheriffs office were also very helpful and supportive as they provided help as well. Trustees from the sheriffs of ce went above and beyond by wading into the water and lined the doorways with sandbags to help hold the water back. Cheri Morgan looks at her home on the fairway next to Wildwood Golf Course. Her home ooded on Wednesday, June 27, days after the rain stopped. LYNDA KINSEY By TAMMIE BARFIELDtbar eld@thewakullanews.netI live at Live Oak Island and after going through Hurricane Dennis, any time there is a storm brewing, even just a tropical storm, Im uncomfortable. Storms are hard to predict, and the surge and tidal effects they will have on our coastline, rivers and estuaries are also hard to predict. Tropical Storm Debby kept the meteorologists and their models hopping. Early on, the storm was thought to be headed toward Louisiana or even further west, so my husband and son went forward with their plans to go to the mountains camping for the week. At 6:30 a.m. on Sunday they were off on their adventure. My adventure was later to begin as Debby was stationary in the gulf thinking about which direction she wanted to turn. When it was decided that she had her eye on Apalachicola, I went into action moving the furniture and other stuff from the yard to the inside of our downstairs area, which is about 3 feet above the ground. Debby was just a tropical storm and would make landfall in an hour and a half, so I decided inside downstairs should be okay. Later that afternoon, I called my sister-in-law, who lives with her husband over at Mashes Sands, and their road was beginning to ood and a deputy was already setting up a roadblock to keep people out. Then emergency management issued evacuation of areas south of U.S. Highway 98, so we decided we would all go to my brother-in-laws house because although he was at Shell Point, his home is a little more inland. Continued on Page 11ABar eld has own adventure Special to The NewsTommy Owen lives on Parsons Lane right on the Sopchoppy River. His home sits 8 feet off the ground and this is the rst time since the cabin was built in1972 the water has risen this high. He evacuated Monday evening just before dark. Walter Solburg called him and told him he would meet him on Greenough Road if he would canoe out and meet him. So, he got what he could put in his canoe and started paddling. The rain was so heavy he had to keep bailing the canoe out while maneuvering through the rushing water. It was still just light enough that he saw a tree had fallen and was leaning against the power line, so he had to go into the trees to bypass the situation. He had previously taken his car to his friends house on higher ground because he could tell it was going to ood, but wasnt sure just how high it would get.

The Lord Jesus described the basic meaning of a church in a very simple and yet profound way:For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.Come take part in our study of Gods Word.4330 Crawfordville Hwy. By Rev. James L. SnyderAs we celebrate another birthday of this great country, I cannot help but think back on some of our history. What a grand history we have had. I know some people are ashamed of our history and so we have revisionists rewriting American history. Nevertheless, I certainly want to celebrate the real America. My wife and I were relaxing after a scrumptious supper and were watching a little bit of TV. I was half dozing, as is usually my condition after such a supper, when my wife startled me with a question. It was a news program on television updating us with the latest political scratch-talk. If it were not for politics, the airwaves would be silent. Oh, for those wonderful sounds of silence. Personally, I would be glad to double my tax rate if in doing so we could put to silence all this political-scratchtalk. I call it scratch-talk because whoever is talking is trying to scratch somebodys back even if it is just their own. I guess we have a lot of itchy backs in this country. Thankfully, we have an endless supply of backscratching politicians. It does not matter which way the wind is blowing each political party says it is blowing in their direction. I guess you have to go to eight years to Harvard and have a student loan debt of $120,000 to understand how that works. If you do not mind, I just do not want to know how it works. With the politicians unable to create work in our country for common Americans, the real Americans, they sure know how to work a situation, usually to their advantage. If they could put all of this to work for the good of the ordinary American, I would feel happier about paying my taxes. As it is, I pay my taxes but not happily. Back to my wifes question. Who are, she said very carefully, the real Americans in this country? Then she paused for a moment and followed it with this question, Who does America really belong to? Well, those two questions got me thinking. Who are the real Americans? Are they Republicans, Democrats or Independents? I know there is a bunch of other miscellaneous political parties but I cannot think of them right now. Which one is the American Party? If I do not like any political party, where does that leave me? I am all for parties, but the whole idea of a party is for people to have fun. I do not see any political party where I could have fun. The strange thing today is, if I do not belong to some political party I am not able to vote in this country. Moreover, if I do vote, who in the world do I vote for? My wife and I got to talking about this and I, for once in my life, posed a question.

I pay tribute to the wonderful people who have monitored the storm, offered their homes to others, provided food and clothing and others who have provided support and assistance. In the last few weeks I have posted on our website www.wakulla.ifas.u .edu many articles related to ood recovery. I have tried to focus on the concerns that people will confront upon their return to their homes. All of the articles are available in print by simply calling the of ce. The University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) has a wealth of materials available to you with practical suggestions to many of the things that will need to be addressed during ood recovery. Please call or stop by to get copies or go to the website listed above. Perhaps these materials would be useful to you, your family or friends. Some topics are: Replacing Lost or Damaged Documents, Odor Removal for Appliances, Savaging Household Furniture, Cleaning Household Linens and Furnishings, Dealing with Flood-Damaged Carpets, Rugs and Clothing, How to Dry Books and Family Papers and Eliminating Odors from Appliances. Please let us assist you during this time of recovery. And lets not forget the children during this time of added stress. A disaster can make a child afraid and a child can mix up real fear and make-believe fear. We all need to be prepared to assist. How can we assist a child understand all that is happening around them? Some suggestions include not leaving a child alone in a new place; stay together to show you wont go away; tell the child about the disaster and tell them that you are also afraid but that together as a family everything will be alright. Assist your child to talk through their feelings and it is important to listen to their responses. Say to them that it is alright to be afraid and that everyone is working to make everything alright again. Let the children help clean up. Put as much order in your life as possible. Explain the plans for each day so that they understand that progress is being made. Bedtime may be especially dif cult. Agree on a time when bedtime will be and try to hold to that. Routine is important during this time of transition. A child may not want to be very far away from their parents or their siblings, especially at bedtime. Remember that a child likes to be around people and in places that he knows. Remember to praise all children for the good things they are doing. Take a break during the day and certainly at bed time to tell a story and if possible, read a book that is fun, positive that lightens the load for the child for a little while. The frequent reminder that you love your children and that the family will get through this time of stress in a very important step.Special to The NewsThe public is invited to attend Cookies and Candidates a political forum for Democratic candidates running for the House District 7 seat in the Florida legislature on July 12, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The forum, sponsored by the Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee, will take place at the Wakulla County Public Library.

We at Shell Point dodged the bullet from Tropical Storm Debby though many folks in the county are still out of their homes because of the amount of rain we had. I have talked to a lot of people that have lived here all of their lives and they have never seen that much rain that fast. There was talk that this storm would be worse than Dennis, but fortunately it wasnt. It never came over the seawalls at our house though it got close. I think I can speak for my neighbors and say thank you to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office and Florida Highway Patrol for the officers that were at the turnoff to Live Oak Island from Shell Point Road that spent three miserable days there. That is an area where a lot of people will put their cars and boats when they expect Live Oak, Shell Point and Oyster Bay to flood. Once they did an evacuation these of cers were there all day and all night checking to make sure people coming back to our area lived there or had a reason to be there. I dont care how good your raincoat is, when youre in that kind of rains youre gonna get wet and most of the of- cers I saw were drenched. Again, thank you. As most people know, scallop season opened on Sunday, July 1. Also as most people know, scallops do not like fresh water. The big question was what would all the freshwater running into the bay do to the scallops. The state does a study and St. Marks was suppose to have a season comparable to 2008 when you could get your limit in no time. I talked to several people at Shell Point that went and they all got scallops. One boat said they got theres out from Black Rock in 8 feet of water and one boat said they went more down toward Gray Mare. Any way, the scallops are there and you will have to work for them as stained up as the water is. Dont forget the diver down ag, dont get too close to other boats that have divers in the water and know your limits. I talked to Bucky at Shell Island Fish Camp and he said quite a few boats came in with their limit of scallops while others had a hard time. Forrest Vickery from Tallahassee had a group down and he told Bucky the closer he got to Gray Mare. Bucky also said the afternoon low tide was the better time since you didnt have to dive so deep. Fishing is also good out of St. Marks. Lots of trout are being caught on the ats and most of them are nice sh. This is the time of year its gets hard to nd live shrimp so get out your favorite plug of jig. Mike Pearson from Tifton went out Saturday and caught three big ounder using mud minnows and went back with some other folks from Shell Point on Sunday and caught more flounder and some nice trout. Capt. David Fife from Spring Creek also caught quite a few ounder this past weekend. Glen and Alicia Peel went over to Orange Beach, Ala., and went out with a friend. They caught their limit of snapper, quite a few big kings and two cobia, one which weighed around 50 pounds. They put the sh in the boat green and Glen said Alicia scrambled to the front of the boat because she knew what a sh that big could do when it was landed that early. Week before last, I took Brad Gray and his 6-yearold son Chase for a half day. Chase caught ve nice trout and two big ounder using live shrimp. My niece Daina and her husband Chris along with their three boys, Gavin, Chandler and Gunter, came over for the Fourth of July week to go fishing and scalloping. I just knew the shing was going to be horrible due to all the rain but I couldnt have been more wrong. On Saturday we had 12 big trout, two ounder, two Spanish and we released six big blues. Gavin, who is 9, caught a 20-inch trout shing with a Gulp and everything else was caught on live shrimp. Gavin Hooked a cobia but had to give the rod to his mother because he couldnt handle it. After about 10 minutes Daina landed a 30-inch cobia. On Sunday we went to the Shell Point Reef and shed the Gulp under a Cajun Thunder and had seven big trout and a 4-pound Spanish. Chandler caught the big trout and big Spanish for that day. We shed about three hours on Saturday and about that many of Monday. The water is extremely dirty but the sh are biting and I saw more bait than I have seen all year. Monday morning and as soon as I get this to the paper we are going out again and scalloping in the morning. As we were launching Chris boat on Saturday morning I got a call from Alan Lamarche saying he was broke down at the tripod. He was on his way out grouper shing with Jeff Swift, GA DNR Law Enforcement director and his brother in law John. He had planned on going out for snapper and grouper. We didnt think the boat I was in would tow the big Grady White so I took him back to his dock and he got his boat. He nally got the other boat towed back in and he thinks it had gotten water in the gas. Despite the delay they came in with their limit of red and black grouper. Gag Grouper is now closed in State waters but open in Federal Waters. The red snapper season has also been extended until July 17 and as I mentioned, scallop season opened July 1st. The Big Bend Saltwater Fishing Tournament is this coming weekend. Still not too late to enter. It was changed from Fathers Day weekend so that grouper season would be open in Federal Waters. Good luck to all those who enter. Two weeks ago in my article I talked about the great trip I had with Ricky Dykes who purchased my trip at the Ducks Unlimited Banquet. I put a wrong name in the paper. It was actually Kim Deal and not Danielle who was with us. Kim was one heck of an angler. I did say she out- shed everyone and that was correct. Fishing is good and the scallops are here despite all t he rain. Be careful out there and take plenty of water. There are going to be a lot of boats scalloping this week so be extremely careful. Good luck and good scalloping and shing!

Each week, auxiliarists receive an electronic edition of the Navigator Express newsletter. Often, these have a message from the National Commodore, James Vass, who oversees the Auxiliary. This week, he sent a very inspirational and informative Independence Day Message. It is worth sharing with all of you. Commodore Vass wrote: 939, Congress established the U. S. Coast Guard Reserve, which was later renamed the Coast Guard Auxiliary in 1941. Through the years the Auxiliary has grown and changed, but we have always remained focused on our goals of saving lives through education and providing support to the U. S. Coast Guard. As we now celebrate the anniversaries, both the 236th year of Independence of our country July 4, and recently the 73rd anniversary of the Auxiliary June 23, we need to focus on the pride we have as volunteers supporting our nation and working with the Gold (active duty) side. Volunteering is critical to the well-being of our country. We should all take pride in the 1,058,817 volunteer hours dedicated by Auxiliarists and the 27 lives saved this year with 693 persons assisted since January 2012. On these anniversaries it is an excellent opportunity to show the spirit of the Auxiliary volunteerism and the dedication to supporting the Coast Guard. We hold the Coast Guard in high esteem for their unwavering courage in their mission to save lives.

There are mythical beings in the rivers, the lakes, the swamps, the caves, and of course the ocean. Before our age of scienti c discovery, you would look at the spring in your back yard and ask yourself, was that a Naiad swimming in the waters? But wait, what is a Naiad?? And why is it living in your Spring? A Naiad is a Greek water nymph that was attached to owing water, often depicted as a beautiful, nude woman bathing in the waters of her spring. It was said that a Naiad would die if her spring were to ever dry up. The Celts believed that the river held mystical black horses called Kelpies, who would peek their eyes out of the water to watch the people on land, much the way our alligators do. One would lure unwary humans, especially children, to ride on its back and the Kelpie would take off with the rider into the deepest part of the river to drown its victim. Even today we watch our children closely as they approach the waters edge, but now we worry more about the gators than the kelpies. As the conquistadors rst discovered our waters, they would sail down our rivers and look over the rails of the ship to see the shadowy forms of mermaids swimming in the Florida rivers. When a sailor rst saw this creature with long green hair undulating under the water as it swam away, he saw similarities to both man and sea. When looking over the rails of our own high dive in Wakulla springs I saw my rst mermaid. Her long green hair was strings of algae owing behind her as she swam, not side to side as other sh, but up and down as a human would with her spine oriented in the same fashion as other mammals. In that statement, I realized that the conquistadors werent far off. Mermaids are a marriage of man and the sea, Manatees are a marriage of mammals and the sea. They represent two worlds coming together and creating something straight from legends right in our back yards. Though the conquistadors found mermaids in Florida, the Irish, Scotts, and Welsh found women (and a few men) living in the sea as well. They were the Selkie, seals who could shed their skins to walk on dry land. It was said that if you stole the skin of a Selkie and hid it from its owner, the Selkie would wed you and stay with you. However, they would pine for the sea, and if the Selkie ever found its skin, nothing on dry land, not love or money, could keep him/her from returning to the sea. Today, when you look outside to your own community, you can see the mysterious waters of the Wakulla Springs cave system. In the hay-day of mythology, our springs would have been worshipped as divine. The home to Naiads, kelpie, mermaids, and ruled by its own river god. Today, Florida springs are in danger; many have been lled or contaminated by runoff toxins and sewage elds. To the end of remembering the divinity of our treasure, this is but the rst article exploring the myths and legends surrounding the water elementUnderwaterWakullaBy Nicole Stanton Thursday Friday

These conditions can cause sh kills, which are natural occurrences and typically do not cause permanent damage to the ecosystem or to sh populations. Many factors can contribute to a sh kill. Some sh kills are complex and involve a variety of factors that may not be easily discernable. However, most common causes of kills in brackish estuaries, freshwater lakes and man-made retention ponds are well understood by scientists. Fish kills are commonly caused by weather-related factors. Sudden temperature uctuations or extreme temperatures can result in sh kills any time of the year. Hot weather during the summer months can cause sh kills because warm water holds less oxygen than cold water. In addition, a lack of rain during hot-weather months lowers the water levels in the system, heating the water and further depleting the oxygen in the system. Fish kills also can occur during extended periods with little sunshine. The process leading to these types of die-offs begins with overcast skies and rainy weather. During extended periods of overcast, rainy or cloudy weather, the biological system uses the dissolved oxygen in the water faster than it can produce it. Rain water can compound the situation by causing vegetation, such as dead leaves and grass clippings, to wash into the system and decompose. The decomposition process also removes oxygen from the water. The good news is that most natural water bodies are resilient to these types of sh kill events. It is important for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) scientists to keep track of the location and extent of sh kills in natural lakes and estuaries to see if there are serious problems developing in an ecosystem that might require investigation or restorative measures. Residents can report sh kills in natural water bodies to the FWC at http://research.MyFWC.com/ shkill/ submit.asp or call the FWC Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511. It is not necessary to report sh kills in man-made retention or private ponds to the FWC.

FWC Of cer Chris Jones, Of cer Jamie Holcomb and Of cer Matt Bell, assigned to Leon and Wakulla counties, reached the three men by boat. The WCSO received a call Tuesday morning, June 26, that the men were attempting to evacuate the home using their own vessel when the rapidly moving waters from the Sopchoppy River capsized the boat. The men were able to swim to a tree in the area of Persimmon Road and Deer Run Court and hang on while help arrived. FWC responded to the swift current and surgically removed each man from the tree, said Wakulla County Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson of WCSO. The men were within minutes of death. They told the of cers that they couldnt hold on much longer, said FWC Capt. Donald Duval, who supervises several Big Bend counties including Wakulla. We were all there but our guys deserve all the credit. Everyone did a phenomenal job, said FWC Major Bruce Cooper, who supervises counties in Northern Florida from Jefferson to Escambia. This was a great example of all of the agencies working well together. We have had excellent cooperation between all of the agencies as we address all of the concerns caused by Tropical Storm Debby, said Emergency Management Director Nelson. As we all know, it is not a matter of if a natural disaster will strike, it is just a matter of when it will strike. We must always be prepared. WCSO gets grant to target speeders and aggressive driversSpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce recently secured a $30,000 Summer Speed and Aggressive Driving grant to step up patrol activities from May to Sept. 30. The grant provides funding for off-duty law enforcement of cers to concentrate on cracking down on drunk drivers, aggressive drivers, speeding vehicles and motorcycle violators. We welcome our many summer visitors to Wakulla County, but we remind visitors and residents to be careful on the roads, said Wakulla County Sheriff Donnie Crum. Dont drink and drive and follow the rules of the road. During the summer months and holidays, an estimated 100,000 motorists, including heavy motorcycle traf c, travel to the coast and beyond using the same roadways that have dif culty handling the local traf c load during peak travel periods. The grant provides funding for off-duty of cers to work sobriety checkpoints starting in early July and multiple DUI saturation patrols will target drunk drivers in areas where they commonly drive. All the WCSO deputies have been trained to conduct eld sobriety exercises through the National Highway Traf c Safety Administration. The extra hours and funding will be used by not only off duty road patrol deputies but also school resource of- cers who are away from their regular duty and off duty Criminal Investigation Division detectives. Deputies have found that speeding has become a bigger issue on the back roads as citizens attempt to get to their destination quicker by traveling less traveled roads. The Summer Speed and Aggressive Driving grant will target those speeders who are driving faster on lower speed residential roads. There will be extra attention paid to motorcycle riders obeying the traf c laws. Aggressive drivers who follow behind other motorists too closely and weave in and out of traf c will also be a focus. Sheriff Crum reminds motorists not to text message, read the newspaper, put on makeup or any other activity that will distract drivers while they operate their motor vehicles. We are hoping to have a safe and enjoyable summer while we continue to keep our traf c crashes and fatality statistics low, he said. By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA lawsuit was filed last month to foreclose on a mortgage held by former County Administrator Parrish Barwick for more than $1.6 million. The lawsuit was led May 17 in Wakulla Circuit Court against Barwick, his wife Suzanna, and unknown tenants in possession of the property. The suit was filed by CADC/RADC Venture 2011-1 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. According to the complaint, a promissory note was executed in September 2008 on the property for $1.681 million. The lawsuit claims there has been a default in payment and declared the note to be due and payable. In addition to the $1.6 million, the lawsuit claims Barwick is liable for costs, fees and interest from the default. During his time as county administrator, Barwick was active in purchasing and selling real estate during the boom years, and concerns about his activities and the potential for con ict of interest with his responsibilities as administrator led to him being pressured to leave the job by county commissioners. The real estate market went bust in 2006 when the bubble of in ated prices for property burst especially coastal property in Wakulla County. In other court activity: CADC/RADC Venture 2011-1 LLC also led to foreclosure on a mortgage on the Buckhorn First property in Buckhorn owned by the Franklin family. In March 2009, Buckhorn First executed a promissory note for $970,000 on the property. The lawsuit claims there has been a default on payments and that the amount is due plus costs, fees and interest as a result of the default. The lawsuit also filed separate counts against Eddie Franklin, Helen Franklin, Johnny Franklin and Freddy Franklin for breach of guaranty. The Franklin family was involved in the construction of Buckhorn Village in the Buckhorn community near Sopchoppy. Wakulla has been assigned a new circuit judge Charles Dodson will now handle responsibilities for Wakulla cases, including felony court and juvenile court. For the past year, Judge Jackie Fulford had the assignment, with Dodson covering some civil cases here. Chief Judge Charles Francis moved Fulford to Leon County, though she will continue to work on some Wakulla cases that she had during her tenure here, including the Wakulla Fishermen lawsuit against the State of Florida challenging net regulations.

Then there is age. How old is the average American? We bounced these questions around for a long time and did not come up with any good answers. Then there was silence. I come back to one thought; why cant we just be Americans. Why do we have to have all the emphasis on variations, colors, temperaments and the people we elect to of ce who cannot tie their own shoes without conducting some poll? Why cant we send ordinary, common sense Americans to Washington DC who understands the American life? Most of the politicians, if not all, live in a bubble and cannot relate to the average American in this country. I challenge these politicians to act like, live like common, everyday, normal Americans. We normal Americans have to live on a budget. If I do not have enough money, I have come to the end of my buying spree. I think this concept ought to be copyrighted and sent to Washington DC. It is a new concept. It will need somebody to interpret it to those who are living in that venomous circle that we call the capital of the United States. I would recommend a rst grader. It would be refreshing to have somebody in Congress or the Senate who had common sense. I guess Will Rogers was right when he said the problem with common sense is it is no longer common. A real American is one who is committed to the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A real American is one who embraces the red, white and blue. A real American is the one who can clutch his ve-dollar bill and say, in God we trust. If it is good for our money, it is good for our life. If only the American people, the real people of America, would wake up and see what our politicians are doing, perhaps they would do what our early founders did. In celebrating another Fourth of July, my thought is simply, why not just be an American. A real American also embraces what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Is that the sound of a drumbeat I hear off in the distance? Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Bruce Ashley and wife Nina Banister Ashley lost their home, vehicles and most of their possessions when ooding romped through Crawfordville and Medart earlier this week. The water level rose to 7.5-feet deep inside their home and 12 feet deep outside the home. They have been using Scuba gear to recover items buried deep in the water. Lt. Ashley said he was nally able to get to his home on Sunday, July 1. The Ashleys were awakened by their animals very early Tuesday morning as the flood waters quickly engulfed their home. They were able to rescue their three cats and dog and swim to a boat. They lost a tractor, two personal vehicles and an agency vehicle in the ood as well as the vast majority of their possessions. We have ood insurance and family support so we will get back on our feet, said Nina. But I know other people around us didnt have ood insurance. They were told they didnt need it. The Ashleys and their neighbors do not live in a ood zone. Nina offered three recommendations for other families based on her professional experience with the state. Review your insurance policy and know what you have covered. Prepare in advance and have a water safe place for important documents, medications, pictures, records and pet information and have a plan for your family pets and carriers available nearby, she said. It all happened so fast, added Lt. Ashley. Lt. Ashley is a member of the Criminal Investigations Unit (CID) and Nina is employed by the Department of Financial Services. They are seeking a rental home until their can get back on their feet. Anyone who can assist the Ashleys with a rental should call Nina Ashley at 528-0032 or e-mail her at nina.banister@hotmail.com.Lt. Ashley loses home in storm, thankful has insuranceDebby from the readers point of viewSpecial to The NewsWakulla County has partnered with Waste Pro to assist ood victims with disposing of household storm debris. Waste Pro will have dumpsters set up at Sopchoppy City Park every day from noon to 5 p.m. until Friday, July 6 for ood victims only who need to dispose of their household debris resulting from Tropical Storm Debby. Waste Pro has agreed to this service at no cost. In addition, Waste Pro will continue to have the Lower Bridge Land ll open on Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. 3 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at a fee of $75 per ton. The county is hoping it will receive funding from FEMA which would pay a portion of the cost of debris removal and monitoring for residents affected by the storm. If the county doesnt get public assistance, residents will have to pay to take their debris to the land ll. Continued from Page 5A Evacuating from Sopchoppy to Crawfordville proved to be a challenge as roads were beginning to ood and of cials were shutting them down and not allowing passage. Soaking wet and in the pouring rain, he turned around and went to his friends house, the Solburgs, in Sopchoppy, and stayed put for the evening. The next day he was able to make it to Crawfordville by taking Highway 319 to Summer Camp and then U.S. Highway 98. He canoed back to his house on Wednesday to discover the water had in fact risen into the house about 4 feet. He paddled past the top of his carport. He visited the Salvation Army group and was given a couple of clean up kits, bottled water and a MRE (meals ready to eat), all of the items came in handy as there was no water to use for cleaning. His water was under water and not sanitary to use. Owen said he was very touched by the generosity of City of Sopchoppy Public Works Director Leonard Tartt who offered money from his own pocket. Owen declined the offer as he was not in need, but was truly touched by the gesture. Power was returned on Sunday, July 1, and he is thankful for all his friends. He is looking forward to life returning to normal.Evacuating Sopchoppy poses many challenges TOMMY OWEN/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAn eel greets Owen on his front porch after returning to his home. Continued from Page 5A We watched and waited and cooked and ate, all the while in disbelief at the amount of rainfall we were experiencing all over the county. Monday morning, I checked my email and the advisory stated the water could reach the following depths above ground at the times of high tide over the next few days. . Apalachee Bay to Waccasassa Bay. . 4 to 6 ft. I thought about Dennis when we had 5 feet of water in our yard and what that meant in terms of loss and I headed back over to my house, fortunately with the help of my sister-in-law and her husband, to move tools and anything else that I could from downstairs to the main oor upstairs. I was beginning to feel very anxious and was hoping my husband and son were having a really good time because at this point I began to wonder why we decided it would be okay for them to leave. Finally I made it to work just before lunch time but in fishing shorts and a Tshirt. My sister-in-law said they had decided to stay the night at Shell Point again, but after looking at the tides, I decided to try to get a hotel room. Around 6 p.m., Niraj called and said they had a cancellation at Best Western. I was in. Complete with sandwiches and soft drinks, I arrived at the hotel during what was still a downpour. After dropping my bag in my room, I joined my friends so we could eat our sandwiches and catch the next advisory to see how Debby was doing. We were checking our Facebooks and emails and really not stressing too much, so decided we would open a bottle of wine to share. Having no wine key, we decided to go just the few blocks up 98 to Dollar General and get ice cream and a corkscrew. The employees were standing in front of the store under the overhang so we asked if they were open. One of the three guys said the ceiling had caved in from the weight of the water so they were closed. Shocked, we decided to go a little further to the gas station at the V of 319 and 98. 319 had been closed heading toward Sopchoppy. We had heard the bridge was compromised or ooded but I still dont think the reality of the severity of what was happening was setting in yet. Once inside, we located the ice cream and looked for the wine key, we paid for our goods and left. It was just starting to get dark when we arrived back at the hotel. The power began ickering on and off and after about an hour, the power was out altogether and we were in the dark with our cell phone ashlights. My sisterin-law called and said they had left Shell Point because the water was about calf-high in the yard and they didnt want to risk the cars getting ooded. Tuesday morning about 6:30 I woke up, looking forward to a nice hot shower and a cup of coffee before heading either to work or to check on my house, depending on what happened with Debby during the night, but the power was still out. I took a not all the way cold but not warm either shower and headed to Crawfordville. The standing water on my route was unbelievable. I had received a text message from News editor Bill Snowden that there was no power at the of ce. Hardees had power so I got coffee and biscuits and tried to think of our emergency plan. After reviewing what I said we would do in an emergency, I quickly surmised it would not be what we would be doing for this emergency. We located an available of- ce space with power and internet (thank you Petra) and set up temporary shop there until the power came back on at the of ce. We did get water in the yard at my home and the door jams swelled from the constant pounding of water and the humidity, and I had an army of some sort of large black ants with wings that Ive never seen before seeking refuge just inside the house, but we were very fortunate not to have taken the brunt of this storm on the coast where I live. Unfortunately some of our neighbors on the rivers were not so fortunate and our hearts go out to them as they recover what they can and look toward repairing and rebuilding in the future.Bar eld has own adventure Why not just be an American Dumpsters for storm debris at Sopchoppy City Park 8921 Woodville Hwy.

The American Red Cross has four Emergency Response Vehicles (ERVs) responding on four different routes in Wakulla County. The routes cover different sections of Wakulla County from the upper St. Marks River area to Sopchoppy and Panacea and locations in Crawfordville. The ERVs have water, meals, clean up kits, bug spray, tarps, sunscreen, rubber gloves, rakes, shovels and more. Red Cross Outreach Teams are in the community addressing other needs including nursing, mental health and family service needs. The Wakulla County Health Department is placing mosquito pellets in standing water and has been spraying pockets of the county for the insects. Well and septic tank inspection teams are beginning to canvas the area to inspect the impacted areas. If a well casing was submerged during the ooding, the well is more than likely contaminated, said Keith Lawhon of the health department. In that case, residents are told to boil their water or use bottled water until it can be tested and decontaminated. Lawhon said there are well testing kits at the health department or someone on staff can come do the inspection for $30. There are several locations with major infrastructure damage that will likely remain closed for a longer period of time: Surf Road at Buckhorn Creek; Smith Creek Road at Syfrette Creek; Bostic Pelt Road at Lost Creek Culvert; and potentially both bridges over the Sopchoppy River (Smith Creek Road and Rose Street). As of 7 p.m. on July 2, both bridges over the Sopchoppy River have been inspected by dive teams from the Florida Department of Transportation and have been re-opened to traf c. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said his staff is still in response mode and still has lots to do. Fleming said the bridge on Highway 22 or Surf Road will be an easy x once the bridge is inspected. Response Statistics (storm total to date): 17 water rescues, 67 people rescued. 131 responses for trees down. 92 responses for power lines down. 45 traf c control points for ooded roadways.

Taking Care of BusinessBusiness News from Business News from Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012By AMY GEIGERChamber PresidentDear Chamber Members, Summer is here a time of year for family vacations, backyard barbecues, breaks from school and pleasant evenings spent with family and friends. All of those things make for a great summer However, this time of year also brings hurricane season and it goes without saying our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of our county. I know each and every one of us is either feeling the aftermath of Tropical Storm Debby either personally or through friends and family. It makes me proud to see our community come together to help those in need. I recently came across this article which I would like to share with each of you and especially those who want to help move the Chamber forward. BEING A CHAMBER MEMBER WHAT DOES IT MEAN? It means getting and staying involved. It means speaking your mind on important issues that affect your business and all business. Membership in the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce means meeting other business people from the area and working collectively to accomplish whatever is necessary for business to survive, indeed to thrive, in this community. Chamber membership is not only paying your dues once a year. Chamber membership provides an opportunity for you to get involved in the form of things to come. It is an opportunity to shape a newer, more vibrant economic region, attuned to the needs of its business community and its citizenry. Joining with the Chamber means being a leader in the business community, speaking about and for small and big business, their concerns and needs. We understand that leadership entails responsibility, time and effort. We understand that your commitment of time and effort is valuable because it is given freely. We also have a commitment to maximize your impact by speaking and acting through our strength in numbers, and through listening to your needs, and to your creativity. I hope after reading this excerpt, you will be inspired to make a difference and become more involved with your Chamber. We can accomplish so much with your help! As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chamber President. Yours in Service, Amy Geiger, President.What it means to be a Chamber member By PETRA SHUFFof the ChamberA big thank you goes to Kathy Hallowell with Arte Mexico for laying the groundwork and acting as our interpreter for our networking luncheon on June 27, and the Carranza family for hosting at La Parrillada. Despite the persistent tropical depression hanging over us for days, and the damage it did to Wakulla (and other regions in Florida), we were pleased to host 51 attendees. Mary thanked everyone for coming, and reiterated that these events are to get to know other Chamber members better, and to network with business owners. Our new members for June were announced: Keith McNeill Plumbing, Panhandle Pizza. St. Marks Refuge Association Inc., Barksdale Custom Pools Inc., and AFLAC agent Willie Mae Peterkin Musgray. Jeff Dora, owner, told us about recently opened Panhandle Pizza. This business has had a location in Woodville for about two and a half years now, and expanded in Crawfordville. The concept is a little different your pizza will be topped with ingredients of your choice, right there in front of you, and then you take it home and bake it. This way you get it bubbling hot, with a crispy and not a soggy crust. Panhandle also serves subs and salads for takeout. As a special incentive to try them out, Jeff offered attending Chamber members a $5 discount on pizzas purchased through June 30. Panhandle Pizza is located in the Dykes Shopping Center across from Ace Hardware. Also joining us was new member Latonya Thomas with Crawfordville Walgreens. Latonya has been at the Crawfordville location for six months, and is excited to get more involved with the Chamber and in the community. Together with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Walgreens announced a new effort to ght heart disease with Million Hearts Initiative in Washington, D.C.

Today is one of those days that doesnt rate that high on the happiness scale. For one thing it is dark and gloomy outside with tornado watches blaring on TV and from my weather radio. My roof, which was repaired this winter, is now leaking over top of my bed. I have covered it with plastic and placed a kettle to catch the drips. Bee Bee Baloo, my new kitten, nds this fascinating. An indoor kitty, he is having his rst experience with rain. I hope it remains limited to drops from my ceiling and not a downpour. He loves the feel of the plastic bunching up under him as he spins around chasing his tail. When he tires of that he perches on a pillow and tries to catch the drips with his tiny paw. This would ordinarily amuse me, but Bee Bee himself is a worry. He has some, as yet undiagnosed, skin condition, manifested by lumps on both shoulders that turn into sores. He takes his medicine like a little trooper and resigns himself to his daily bath and ointment applications, but has not improved. Today he goes on some new medication. I worry about him, while he frolics happily, enjoying the ooding of my bed. Then theres Nurse Judy, my fashion conscious alter ego. She ordered some new clothes on-line and they arrived today. Sadly they do not t. Of course, they are too small, since she has been eating too much delicious prime rib at the Quincy Golf Club. She heatedly denies that shes put on any weight, explaining the clothing problems as too long waisted or improper labeling, but I know the truth. She had hoped to wear her new clothes and go somewhere exciting over the Fourth of July holiday. With a leaky roof, a sick kitten and tornado warnings, Im not sure of the feasibility of a holiday excursion. I try to discuss this with her, but she does not wish to hear me. I, myself, am feeling out of sorts and decidedly un t from those same Friday night dinner outings. I notice I get a little out of breath just walking to pick up my mail. I vow to put Nurse Judy and me on a diet. When I tell her, she laughs. Youve been on a diet your whole life, and what good has it done you? Youre as plump as a peacock and look like a frumpy old woman. I know shes right, but I do want to improve. I mull this over. Peacocks are pretty, I nally say. Frumpy old women arent, she snaps back, and Im not going on a diet. We could exercise more, I say. We could go swimming a lot this summer. She looks at me. You cant swim, she says. Thats true. Well, we could take water aerobics. Youre so fat you wont let anyone see you in a swimsuit, she retorts. Right again. This really is a down day. Bee Bee stops his hi-jinx and comes over and jumps up in my lap. He looks up in my face, before curling up for a snooze, as if to say, I think youre pretty. I relax. Down days are parts of life. Eventually, the sun will come out and beautiful Florida weather will be back. Bee Bees skin condition will clear up. The roof will be repaired. Nurse Judy will nd some clothes she ts into. Ill go on a diet so I can t into something besides just my shoes. We still may be able to take a little vacation. Cheer up, I say. Better times are on the way. Remember, into each life, some rain must fall. Nurse Judy looks at me, not completely molli ed. Yeah, but it shouldnt be on our bed, she says. More later, Judy www.nursejudyinfo. comJudy Conlin is a nurse in Wakulla and Gadsden counties. Visit her website at nursejudyinfo.com.

By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 29 A much-anticipated ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court sucked the air out of the room this week as all eyes turned to the nations high court, which bucked odds makers and rejected Floridas challenge to President Barack Obamas ambitious health care overhaul. A 5-4 decision, which came the last day of its current term, ended weeks of prognostication, posturing and expectation over the sweeping decision that, for now at least, shifts the course of health care delivery in the United States. Anticipating a different decision, Republican of cials rolled out the Florida and U.S. ags and set up a podium for an anticipated press event lauding the high court for striking down what has been called Obamacare, even by Obama supporters. Instead, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi ascended the steps of the Old Capitol to tell a bank of cameras and reporters of her extreme disappointment that Floridas lawsuit challenging the federal governments ability to require citizens to carry health insurance was defeated by the slimmest of margins. Bondis lament was echoed throughout Republican ranks in Tallahassee and across the state as analysts combed through the 193-page labyrinth of a ruling marked by shifting alliances and the surprising and pivotal action of one of the courts more conservative justices. This is going to be devastating to our economy, Gov. Rick Scott told reporters hours after the ruling. Probably more importantly, it is going to be devastating to patients. If you look at every government program in the world, they overpromise, they run out of money, they underpay providers and that rations care, Scott said. On top of that, as bad as it is for patients, its going to be just as bad for taxpayers. Were not going to be able to afford this. Critics of the Affordable Care Act took solace in at least one part of the ruling: Florida and other states would not be held hostage over federal Medicaid funds should they decide not to expand Medicaid coverage to include nearly all individuals under 133 percent of poverty, or about $30,000 for a family of four. Florida of cials have long complained that the state can barely afford to pay for Medicaid now, and taking on new enrollees could bankrupt it, even if Washington will pick up 90 percent of the cost. They then turned their attention to November, saying the battle over who pays for health care now shifts from the courts to the polls. The American people will have their say in November, Bondi said. And I am con dent that they will join me in rejecting a law that is so harmful to individual liberty, to our economy, and to the welfare of our people. OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: BLACK ROBES Nearly all the news surrounding state government this week came out of some court or other. A federal judge in Tallahassee rejected an effort to bar the state from resuming a voter purge that is already on hold, issuing a ruling that could severely undermine the U.S. Department of Justices lawsuit against an initiative aimed at removing suspected non-citizens from the election rolls. At the same time, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said his ruling not to issue an injunction was driven in part by assurances from the state that it would not forward any more names to county elections supervisors based on a list of potentially ineligible voters that even the state concedes is inaccurate. That list is drawn from drivers license and voter-registration records. Meanwhile in a different case involving elections law, the state and the opponents of a suspended law dealing with third party voter registration are moving toward a settlement over the new rules, both sides said this week. Circuit judges meanwhile, wrangled over other issues including online travel and prison health privatization efforts. The first case involves whether online travel companies should pay taxes on the entire cost of their service or just on the discounted rates they pay hotels. The other lawsuit is a dispute over prison health privatization. The Florida Nurses Association and a state employees union led a lawsuit this year challenging the constitutionality of the Legislatures decision to use the budgets ne print, known as proviso language, to direct the Department of Corrections to contract with private health companies. That case may be moot, however, as the proviso language outlining the privatization effort expires June 30. CUBA LAW BARRED, FOR NOW A Miami federal judge temporarily blocked enforcement of a new law that would prevent the state and local governments from contracting with companies that have business links to Cuba. U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore said Odebrecht Construction Inc., which filed a lawsuit early this month, had demonstrated a substantial likelihood of success that the law violates the federal constitution. The law would prevent companies from receiving government contracts of $1 million or more if they do business in Cuba or are af- liated with rms that do business there. Odebrecht, a Coral Gables-based rm, argues that the law is unconstitutional because it intrudes on the federal governments powers to set foreign policy. STORY OF THE WEEK; U.S. Supreme Court upholds Affordable Care Act but says federal government cant withhold Medicaid funds if states balk on additional coverage. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of of ce if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Justice John Roberts in the opinion upholding the Affordable Care Act. Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 5, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comWEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Roberts rules of orderBy DAVID ROYSE THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 29 During his time as attorney general of Florida, Bill McCollum boosted the states efforts to ght child predators and developed a law enforcement strategy to reduce gang violence. But on the issue that would have set his legacy in the nations legal history, McCollum came up just short this week when the U.S. Supreme Court narrowly rejected his argument that the nations new health care law was unconstitutional. Despite any successes he had in his time as attorney general and in a long career in Congress, this will no doubt be the story, McCollum acknowledged in an interview this week. There are many things as attorney general Im very proud of, said McCollum, now a partner at the D.C. law rm SNR Denton. Obviously, people will remember this decision more. McCollum led the challenge to the new health care law the day the bill was signed into law in March of 2010, and was quickly joined in the lawsuit by several other attorneys general. But he and lawyers in his of ce were looking closely at the health care law even as the bill was being drafted though McCollum was most concerned at rst only with the actual policy rami cations, including its cost to states. During the debate over this I knew this law was trouble for the states, said McCollum, who wrote members of Congress urging them not to pass it. But the idea for suing to block it on constitutional grounds came, McCollum said, when he read an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by constitutional lawyers David Rivkin and Lee Casey, who wrote in 2009 that they believed the law went beyond the powers granted to Congress. McCollum assigned lawyers in his of ce to follow that line of thinking, and began talking to several other Republican attorneys general. We concluded on our own that this was something I wanted to do, that this was important, McCollum said. He later hired Rivkin and Casey to represent the state in the case. He says even as it was led, he thought it likely would go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. His initial public statements against the law were on cost to the states and to individuals, but he also argued publicly when announcing the lawsuit the issue that eventually would actually end up saving the law he argued that it was essentially a tax, which is what the Supreme Court nally decided as well. The Supreme Court said that type of taxing authority was within Congress rights, but McCollum had posited in 2010 that Congress was going too far, and didnt have the power to tax people just for living in the country. It wasnt a tax related to any particular behavior but rather to doing nothing, by not buying health insurance. It forces people to buy something, in the sense of buying a health care policy or pay a penalty, a tax or a fine that simply the Constitution does not allow Congress to do, McCollum said at the time. McCollum drew some criticism in taking on the law which was already wildly unpopular with Republicans because he was running for governor, and some saw the move as trying to boost his chances. In August, McCollum would lose the Republican primary to now-Gov. Rick Scott. McCollum said Thursday he obviously was disappointed in the ruling, but proud of the legal team that took on the law. It was a very good argument, McCollum said. Four of the justices would have taken the whole law out. Wed be a lot better off as a country, Florida would be a lot better off, if we had.
