By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netResidents within Wakulla Gardens got a chance to voice their opinions and get questions answered about the proposed voluntary assessment for road improvements at a Wakulla County Commission workshop on July 12. The county has sent out a ballot survey to all residents in Wakulla Gardens asking if they would be willing to pay for road paving. Each resident would be charged between $180 and $235 per year for 10 to 15 years. The county has been looking for a solution to Wakulla Gardens infrastructure problem for years, which includes unpaved and poor roadways, stormwater drainage problems and lack of access to sewer and water. The cost to fund these improvements is astronomical, $30 to $40 million, and the commission has been trying to “ nd ways to pay for these improvements. The commission has indicated that it does not see these improvements happening any time within the near future because of the lack of funding. It could be years, it could be decades,Ž Commissioner Alan Brock said. The last several months, the commission has received numerous complaints about the condition of the roadways and the dust issues. A lime rock aggregate was applied to the roads to help stabilize them and also help with problems with ” ooding in the area. During disasters and heavy rainfall, roads in this area become impassable. However, dry weather, causes the roads to be dry and dusty. So the commission decided to give residents the option of assessing themselves to pay for road paving, which would speed up the effort.Continued on Page 3A Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 27th Issue Thursday, July 19, 2012 T w o S e c t i o n s Two Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents kll h h h h k l l h P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y R e a d D a i l y Published Weekly, Read DailynewsThe WakullaThe Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 5A Community .....................................................................Page 6A School .............................................................................Page 7A Outdoors ........................................................................Page 8A Water Ways .....................................................................Page 9A Sheriffs Report................................................................Page 10A News Extra! .....................................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Arts & Entertainment .......................................................Page 3B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 9B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 9B INDEX OBITUARIES William Fred Bailey Ruth McCallister Davis-High Royce Van Jackson, M.D. Danny Bruce Singletary Proper mold remediation requires mold removal by a licensed certified professional.

Wakulla 2020, an idea based on Blueprint 2000 in Tallahassee and that would have included a half-cent sales tax increase to pay for transportation improvements, did not receive the support needed from the Wakulla County Commission at the July 16 meeting to place a referendum on the ballot in November. Commissioner Randy Merritt, who has expressed his concern with the timing of this referendum, made the motion to not approve scheduling a public hearing to add the referendum on the ballot. The commission voted four to one, with Commissioner Alan Brock opposing, on the motion. Continued on Page 3A At “ rst ” ush, Ouzts Toos toilet garden is a little di erentGiven the choice by county commissioners of whether they want to pay to pave their subdivision roads or notBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.net Upon a “ rst visit to Ouzts Too Oyster Bar and Grill at the St. Marks River Bridge, one might not expect to “ nd a garden out back. But, as visitors and patrons to the restaurant soon “ nd out, there is one and it has a uniqueness all its own. The garden at Ouzts Too is lined with toilets serving as planters. The porcelain commodes come in several different colors, white, burgundy and pastels, and are full of a variety of plants. Some have plants in the bowl, others have them in the tank and some have both. When Dorothy Ouzts, owner of the restaurant and proud caretaker of the garden, bought the restaurant in 2005, there were four white toilets already in the back yard that held plants. But Ouzts says they were in bad shape and in serious need of attention. She decided to keep the toilets and create a garden. Ive never seen a toilet garden before,Ž Ouzts says. In her years of traveling, a garden made of toilets was something Ouzts says she never came across. Year after year, Ouzts added to the garden and now has about 10 toilets in a variety of colors and one that serves as a fountain. The fountain isnt running currently because of the rain dumped on Wakulla County by Tropical Storm Debby. Ouzts says she has to clean it out and get it operating again. For now, it is serving as a water fountain for the pink ” amingo that also calls the garden home. Toilets have been donated to the garden by patrons and many have been purchased at Habitat for Humanitys Restore in Crawfordville. Ouzts says if the store gets a colored toilet in, they call her to let her know. They save them for me,Ž Ouzts says. She is at her limit on toilets, but says if the toilet was a color she didnt have, that she would add it to the garden. A lot of travelers come through Ouzts Too and all are invited to see the garden before they leave. They are always amazed,Ž Ouzts says. There is a travel agent from New Zealand who always brings her groups to Ouzts Too and the toilet garden never disappoints. People like coming back here,Ž Ouzts says. When Ouzts gets a toilet for the garden, it stays as is. If there is a lid, she keeps it on. If there is a seat, that stays too. Some of the toilets still have all their working parts, including the ” apper, chain and float located in the tank.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThis November, voters in Wakulla County will decide who will be the next superintendent of schools. At a political forum held on July 10 by the Wakulla County Christian Coalition and Concerned Citizens of Wakulla County, voters got a chance to meet the candidates and hear why they deserve the title. The candidates are Kimball KimŽ Thomas and Robert BobbyŽ Pearce. Superintendent David Miller chose not to seek re-election after serving in that capacity for 17 years. Both candidates grew up in Wakulla County and expressed their love for the area. They have also spent most of their careers in education. Pearce told the audience that he has dedicated 23 years to the Wakulla County school system, helping to build one of the most successful school districts in the state. He has served as a PE teacher, educator, principal, principal on special assignment for the district and in June was appointed to assistant superintendent, all in Wakulla County. Thomas told the audience he wished he could tell them that all his years in education were spent solely in Wakulla County. But when he worked his way up to assistant principal, he said he hit an administrative ceiling in Wakulla County and had to look elsewhere for opportunities. However, he said having those different experiences serves as an asset as well. Thomas has been a teacher and assistant principal at Wakulla Middle School, principal at Rickards High School, Department of Education Department of School Improvement employee, adjunct professor at Gainesville State College and currently serves as principal of East Gadsden High School. One topic that came up numerous times during the forum was the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test and other types of student testing. The candidates were asked whether they felt too much time was spent on preparing for these tests. Thomas said there needs to be a balance. Students needs to be prepared for the “ rst day of school next year, not just the FCAT. Its one data set that tells us how we are doing,Ž Thomas said. School districts must look at the entire picture to measure how their schools and students are doing, The graduation rate, graduation at-risk rate, college placement results and other student assessment data needs to be looked at, he said. Pearce said it concerned him that schools were spending too much time preparing for the FCAT. This ends up creating a generation of students who arent happy with school, dont like school and pass that on to their children, he said. It affects students in different ways,Ž he said. And he felt FCAT now seems to be more of how the teachers and administrators are judged. He said several different factors and assessments need to be looked at to measure the performance of students and the school district, including the graduation rate, how many students are taking advanced placement, honors classes and career and vocational opportunities will help to measure the success of students. The question of how to close the student achievement gap was also asked of the candidates. Pearce said teachers and administrators need to continue to push students and make sure every student has an equal opportunity. He added that his goal was to help ninth graders develop a plan for where they want to go in the future. To produce citizens that can produce for themselves,Ž Pearce said. Thomas said he would “ rst look at the data and then make sure the best and brightest teachers are being hired. He said he would also look different course offerings and counseling for students. Candidates were also asked whether they would keep physical education, arts and music in the schools. Both said they would make sure they stay and believed they were important. As a PE teacher, that would be a cardinal sin,Ž Pearce said of eliminating PE. He added that all these things are needed to make a well-rounded student. He said he hoped to add more to those programs, which have been cut in the past because of the budget. Thomas said schools must have these programs available to students. Students are placed in rows and columns, but then are asked to think outside the box, he said. What an anomaly,Ž he said. Not all students are logical, mathematical thinkers, he said. He added that he would cut administrative costs to ensure the schools have these programs. There were also several questions raised dealing with racial diversity among school district employees. The candidates were asked how many African American administrators there should be and if they felt there was a failure to promote minorities to administrative positions. Thomas said diversity is necessary, in every part of life, and he would look at the numbers of minority administrators and the proportion. But, he added that he wants to make sure the best quali“ ed people are hired. Pearce agreed that diversity was important. There is a need for diversity, but he would also make sure that the employee meets the requirements set by the school district and is a role model to the students. Creating a diverse population of teachers and administrators is important, as well as hiring the most quali“ ed people. An audience member asked the candidates how they would increase parent involvement at the schools, especially Wakulla High School. Pearce said, Weve got to Disney up.Ž Which meant that everyone needs to be treated as a king and leave happy. He added that communicating by email is great, but teachers and parents need to get face to face more. Thomas said an emphasis needs to be placed on customer friendly service and network with the parents more and engage them. One idea might be to offer incentives for parents who volunteer and are very involved. The last question asked was who their favorite teacher was in school. Thomas said it was Ruth Williams. She had an expectation of us,Ž he said. She knew there were challenges, but never made her students feel like they couldnt learn, he said. Pearce said he had many, but one who stood out was Kay Floyd who taught for 43 years. She leaves him strategic voicemails each day and tells him she loves him.

JULY 19, 2012 Continued from Page 1A If approved by the board, it would have gone to the voters for approval. I think the projects are a great idea,Ž Merritt said. I just think the timing is bad.Ž The timing Merritt was referring to was the closeness of this referendum to the extension of the countys one-cent sales tax in 2014. He felt the referendum for the Wakulla 2020 transportation surtax might jeopardize the renewal of the one-cent sales tax. The one-cent sales tax funds transportation and roads, the library, parks and recreation, public facilities and public safety. Its very close to the ballot language of the one-cent sales tax,Ž Merritt said. He added that he knows the voter can make the distinction between the two, but is afraid if one passes, the voter may not want to approval another tax just a short time later. Its not worth the risk,Ž Merritt said. Commissioner Mike Stewart agreed and said if the one-cent sales tax is lost, I dont know how well fund our road and bridge department.Ž Stewart also said instead of levying the half-cent sales tax, the county could re-apportion the one-cent sales tax and give more to the projects pinpointed by the Wakulla 2020 Advisory Committee. Now we can look at that much harder,Ž Stewart said. Previously, Wakulla 2020 was going to focus solely on Highway 319. The fourlaning of this road has been delayed numerous times by the Department of Transportation and is now on a 20-year delay. So this citizen initiative was started to try and “ nd a way to address this issue and pay for improvements. The Wakulla 2020 Advisory Committee was asked to broadened its scope to include all areas in the county by the county commission. However, John Shuff, who has led this initiative, said the “ rst project would be improving six intersections along Highway 319. The intersections would start at Bloxham Cuttoff and go to U.S. Highway 98. Other projects included couple turn lanes in Medart and a few in Panacea for better traffic flow, as well as paving Tower Road near Panacea for hurricane safety. There were two road resurfacing projects suggested in St. Marks, paving Old Woodville Highway in Wakulla Station and widening the shoulder on Shell Point Road and Smith Creek Road. Previously there were sidewalk and bike trails projects listed, but those have since been removed because the money from the half-cent sales tax would not be allowed to be used for these projects. Stewart was also concerned about oversight of the Wakulla 2020 committee, who will be in charge of the funds. According to Shuff, it is estimated that the half-cent sales tax would bring in about $900,000 a year and after 15-years and a bonding stream and service estimate, they would have around $12 million to spend. There needs to be some accountability,Ž Stewart said. Thats a lot of money.Ž Commissioner Lynn Artz, who previously voted for adding the referendum to the ballot, said she was concerned about the proposed ballot language because it seemed to promise voters more than will be delivered and didnt seem to be very clear. The list of projects totals more than $37 million, but the tax is only anticipated to bring in $12 million, with the hope of getting grants. Only about a third would actually get funded,Ž Artz said. Shuff said DOT is very anxious to match funds for transportation projects and has expressed its support for the plan. Artz said, I dont want to see us setting sky high expectations.Ž Shuff said the list was created so that if the economy does turn around other projects have been targeted and can be in place. It was not meant as a means of deception,Ž he said. He added that there needed to be an education program to inform the public. Brock said he didnt feel there was enough time to educate and get it done before the deadline to place it on the ballot. But still felt like it was a good idea and voted against the motion as a show of support. Commissioner Jerry Moore who voted in favor of adding it to the ballot changed his vote and said he would stick by his mantra of no new taxes. Its not my understanding or my feeling that these items are needed today,Ž Moore said. Merritt said he also felt recent meetings with DOT have been positive and the Capital Regional Transportation Agency was responsive to moving widening Highway 319 further up on the list of road projects. The commissioners all agreed the Wakulla 2020 initiative was a good one and thanked the advisory committee for its hard work.Wakulla 2020 gets voted down by commissioners Continued from Page 1AThe ballots must be postmarked by July 31. If at least 50 percent plus one vote in favor of the assessment, it is anticipated that the commission would move it forward. Before being assessed, the county commission would have to vote for it as well. Im not going to vote a tax on anybody if they dont want it,Ž said Commissioner Randy Merritt. Rest assured, were not going to shove a tax down your throat.Ž Commissioner Mike Stewart said the commission wants to support what the residents want. Some residents were in favor of paying to have their roads paved, while others felt it was unfair that they should have to pay when other residents within the county do not. Its not right to make us pay,Ž said resident Don Curley. He pointed out other roads in the county that were paved and not paid for by residents in the area. Commissioner Mike Stewart said a list of roads is submitted to the Department of Transportation who evaluates the roads and then decides which roads are paved and when. Other roads have been resurfaced using money from the Small County Road Assistance Program. These funds can only be used to resurface existing paved roads. Resident Sherrie Bowen asked why roads were paved around Lake Ellen at no expense to residents. That road was on the countys paving list from many years ago, said Commissioner Randy Merritt. The intention was to pave collector roads,Ž he said. Commissioner Alan Brock said the paving that was done around Lake Ellen was done in the same way that the county paved Lower Bridge Road, which is now Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Road, he said. Resident Sandy Rogers said she would like to see the roads paved, especially the connector roads, but is barely making it by as it is. Were all strapped,Ž she said. The project would cost $5.2 million and would pay for the paving of 21.17 miles of roads in Wakulla Gardens and minimal stormwater improvements. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said the roads would be 20-feet wide and some would have traf“ c calming devices. This is a plain jane road,Ž Fleming said. The roads within Wakulla Gardens would be paved within three different phases, starting with the highly traveled roads. This would take about two years, said County Administrator David Edwards. The county would use existing staff to prepare the roads for paving and would bid out the asphalt portion. Paving could start in the spring of 2013, if it is approved by residents, Edwards said. Included in the stormwater improvements are cross drains, side drains, culverts and more storage volume, said the countys engineering consultant Alan Wise with Preble-Rish. The idea is to plan for future stormwater improvements, he said. Many residents were concerned about the ” ooding in Wakulla Gardens and wanted to know if this would decrease ” ooding. Resident Megan Davis said she had four feet of water in her yard and up to six inches in her house from the downpour from Tropical Storm Debby. Wise said it would not make ” ooding worse, but couldnt say for sure if it was decrease ” ooding. Culverts would be placed where it is practical and will not be put in at every lot, Fleming said. If the ballot receives a positive response, the county will also look at offering a program to consolidate contiguous lots so that property owners would not be charged multiple assessments. The property owner would have until Dec. 3 to consolidate the lots. This would also reduce density within Wakulla Gardens. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said the quickest the county could put the assessment in place would be January. If the voluntary assessment fails, Stewart said the county will do its best to look at paving those highly traveled roads in phase 1. The county is also looking at long term options for funding infrastructure improvements. This would include the creation of a Community Redevelopment Area for an area that includes Wakulla Gardens. The CRA funds projects through tax increment “ nancing. After the CRA is established, the value of real property in the area is determined on a “ xed date; as the value increases because of improvements, the tax revenue increases. The difference is set aside for the CRA. Another idea was to allocate a certain percentage of the roads portion of the one-cent sales tax to Wakulla Gardens improvements. This percentage would be based on the number of roads in Wakulla Gardens versus the total number of county-owned roads. It would equate to 2.7 percent. Another option is the Florida Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program which provides funding for housing and community development.Its up to Wakulla Gardens residentsContinued from Page 1A The way I get them is the way I leave them,Ž Ouzts says. She places the toilet on top of a concrete block to keep it sturdy then puts mulch around it. She then “ lls the bowl with potting soil and says she only uses good soil. Then she adds the plant.

I am reminded every day that the best things in life are not things. In my particular story I wished to pass along that I have met and visited with the many Red Cross, FEMA and other representatives in our area. I was lucky enough to have had insurance, and ” ood insurance that is going to help. But the folks here from FEMA etc have been wonderful, and helpful. If you or a family member or friend have not been to the Extension of“ ce location, please encourage them they need to go. They may qualify for any number of assistances from a number of agencies. As the County has been approved for both individual and public assistance, many life and infrastructure essentials are quali“ ed for funds. You should/must take a little time to get your names in the system to qualify. The folks of our community are full of pride and made of strong “ ber. It can be hard to ask for help, but please lets help those who have lost much. The Wakulla County Coalition is accepting donations to help people. There are areas the federal government, state, and county governments may be able to assist with. To “ nd out more you can call the WCCY at 926-3526. I and my wife have been blessed. We have seen help and support from many I will not name here. Some have meant more than I can say and continue to prop us up dailyƒthe best things in life truly, are not things. Sincerely with so much to be thankful for, Bruce Ashley President Wakulla County Coalition for Youth Editor, The News: An open letter to Wakulla County Commissioners: It has been brought to my attention that Wakulla County has a great opportunity to access Federal funds for the improvement of Wakulla County Airport in Panacea, Florida. I understand there are many who are both for and against this project. Just to let you know a little bit about myself, 1 have been a resident of Wakulla County for almost 16 years. I am a professional pilot for the State of Florida. I have been employed with the State for 27-plus years and have been flying for them for more than 21 of those years, with approximately 10,000 hours of logged ” ight-time. I say this not to boast but to let you know of my experience in aviation. The Wakulla County Airport, geographically, is a very vital airport not only for local pilots but also enroute aviators transiting this area. It is a vital airport in that many people use the Coastline as a reference when transiting the Gulf region. The airport has been used as an alternate landing airport for many pilots who may not have been able to continue their trip due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. I have personally used the Wakulla County Airport numerous times as an alternate landing strip when Tallahassee Regional and Quincy Airports were experiencing inclement weather. With the Carrabelle and Perry Airports being the next two closest facilities on the coast, you can see why our airport could be crucial to a pilot who may need to land due to weather or mechanical issues. To a pilot ” ying a single-engine airplane this could be an issue of life or death. These are just a few examples of the importance of keeping our airport on the FAA Charts and available to aircraft. Now what can the airport do for our county? An airport is important to the economy of a thriving community. This airport has the potential to bring in revenue in the form of tourism dollars if that is the vision that you have for our county. The capital possibilities are numerous with the potential sale of fuel and ramp/tie-down fees, not to mention the monies that could be brought in for other local businesses that deal in food and lodging. With the airports short runway of 2,590 feet the impact that this facility has on the surrounding area is very minimal. The length of this runway limits the size and type of aircraft that are able to land here. I can almost say with certainty that you will not see jets or large cabin-class aircraft here. The types of aircraft that you will see at this airport are mostly single-engine, general-aviation aircraft. These types of aircraft have a very low impact in the area of noise. I have heard airboats on Ochlockonee Bay that are much louder than any of the planes I have heard at the Wakulla County Airport. With a noise abatement procedure and hours of operation published in the Airport Facilities Directory for departing and arriving aircraft, there is no reason why the airport could not be a good neighbor to the residents in the surrounding area. Let me close by saying, accepting the funds that are being offered to our county for the improvements of this facility would be bene“ cial not only for our residents, but also for the aviation community that may someday land here for pleasure or by necessity. Thank you in advance for your consideration in this issue, Thomas James Mallow CrawfordvilleREADERS WRITE: e best things in life are not things Story was much appreciated Votes in contest were awesome e airport is important to the county ank you to volunteers after Debby ank you, Boonie Mitchell, for your help School Board deserves closer attentionEditor, The News: On behalf of VolunteerWAKULLA, I would like to thank all the volunteers and relief organizations who came out to help with the cleanup from Tropical Storm Debby. The Red Cross, Salvation Army and Goodwill Industries, are continuing to play a very large part in the relief efforts. They are available to assist residents with food, water and housing, as well as help with making contact for cleanup. 2-1-1 of the Big Bend has played a large role in informing residents as to the types of help that is available. Thank you. A very special thanks to Samaritans Purse, an international relief organization, that came with their teams to help in the cleanup efforts. Members came from Georgia, Florida, Missouri and South Carolina to help. They brought tools and supplies and worked tirelessly alongside volunteers from Wakulla and Leon Counties. It was a pleasure working with them. In addition, Lake Ellen Baptist Church gave the use of their beautiful facility to house Samaritans Purse and to host a volunteer center. Thank you to Pastor Keith Wallace and the church congregation for their support. Several local business donated food and other items to the volunteer center; Ace Hardware, Advanced Auto Parts, Gulf Coast Lumber, Little Caesars, Panhandle Pizza, Pizza Hut, Stone Creek Pizza, Wal-Mart and the Wakulla County Health Department. Your generous donations were a blessing. I am especially grateful for the help from Cecile DeGrove and Jimmie Doyle, who helped at the volunteer center and Gail Campbell, from WCCY, for her help in gathering donations. There were many more people and organizations that worked behind the scenes to help our residents through this dif“ cult time. I want to take this opportunity to thank them all; their efforts were invaluable during this disaster. Pam Mueller President VolunteerWAKULLA Editor, The News: I think our country is in sad shape financially and morally and believe in speaking out if something about our government bothers me, so here goes. The “ ve members of our School Board have been in of“ ce for a total of 78 years. I thought this was a service position, not a career. In the past 35 years, we have never had an African American on the board and only two females. They meet once a month for about an hour. The 2012 salary is $25,416. Divide that by 12 months and you get $2,118 an hour! Ray Gray, with 14 years on the board, was “ ned $7,500 by the Governor because he violated the publics trust by not being truthful on his Form 6 reports. Has he paid the “ ne? He was “ red from his position as director of parks and recreation for the county. As of July 10, he owed $28,375.24 in unpaid property taxes. How can he sit on our school board making decisions on how to spend our tax dollars when he doesnt pay his? Is this setting a good example for our children? Should we do a recall? Mike Scott, up for reelection in August with 16 years on the board, had court judgments against him including Fraud and Civil Theft and a Judgment of Garnishment. When I talked to him, he said all of that was finished. According to the Form 6 directions, judgments are to be reported as liabilities. Has he reported correctly for the past “ ve years? Has he “ led any correction reports? Is this setting a good example for our students? Becky Cook, with 18 years of service and the only female on the board, has volunteered thousands of hours in our schools. The children love her music classes and I know she enjoys the interaction with the children. Thank you, Becky. Greg Thomas, a board member for 12 years, manages his own affairs and pays his taxes. Thank you, Greg. Jerry Evans, a member for 18 years, has moved to south Florida. Jerry and I had a good visit on the phone. He does not intend to resign from the school board. He feels that with the technology of today he can stay connected with all school issues and “ nish out the two years of his term by coming back to town for the monthly meeting. I dont believe we can serve our students long distanceŽ and think the $2,118 for an hour meeting was an in” uence. He said if it reaches the point where he feels he is not doing justice to our students, he will address the situation. He said he met with David Miller and Bobby Pearce and they were in agreement with his decision. According to the Division of Elections he can do this because he is stating his Wakulla residency as his permanent address. So Jerry, take care and be safe on the road, but dont miss any meetings. Well be waiting for you to roll back into town. If the $2,118 for an hour meeting upsets you, contact senators and representatives and get the 2011 Senate Bill 2172 back on the agenda. It would pay school board members a stipend, as do the majority of the other states, instead of a salary, retirement and bene“ ts. It could save the taxpayers millions. Our great schools are a result of our dedicated teachers, students, involved parents, staff and those working to feed, transport, clean up and get the paychecks out. Thank you. Remember to vote for a new school board member in the August Primary. Early voting is Aug. 4 to Aug.11, at the Supervisor of Elections Of“ ce. The regular Primary will be Aug. 14. Your choices are Michael Scott, running for re-election, and Melisa Taylor. Donna Sanford Crawfordville Editor, The News: We wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Jennifer Jensen for the outstanding story in the Thursday, July 12 edition of The Wakulla News regarding our FEMA Community Relations operation (Community Relations Team is out in the county,Ž front page). We were especially touched by your account of efforts on behalf of Mrs. Elaine Herndon. Your narrative was expressed with great sensitivity and compassion and is, we think, right on the mark in capturing the very spirit of our mission in the “ eld. Our FEMA colleagues spoke of how well and how accurately your story detailed the work we do. They noted how beautifully it gave a face and an immediacy to the massive relief effort by FEMA and by the many other organizations, groups and untold numbers of individual volunteers in this area. We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge with commendations your story on the vital work of the Disaster Recovery Center in Crawfordville, and the touching account of Mr. Bill Rogers encounter with the danger of ” ood waters (He woke up just in time,Ž front page). You brought it all home to your readers . so again, thanks so much for your treatment of these important matters and events. Best wishes, Brenda and Steve Brenda Cheek Steve HuffstutlerFEMA Community RelationsEditor, The News: I just want to take the time to say thank you to everyone who voted for me for the national Samsung Superhero Video Competition. I didnt win the contest, but I am still a winner, regardless of the outcome. I just feel accomplished that I placed in the top 10. I was the only “ nalist from the state of Florida, and with your help, I received the second largest number of votes. So, to my family and friends, I want to say thank you for supporting me through the whole contest. It was an awesome learning experience, and it gave me an idea of what to expect the next time I apply for a video scholarship. I will still continue to purse my dream as a “ lm producer, no matter what obstacles I face, and I will always keep God “ rst in everything I do. Sincerely, Demetrius Lindsey Wakulla High School Senior

By REV. JAMES L SNYDER It is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs ” y.Ž Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs ” y.Ž My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs ” y.Ž Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can ” y. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off when it comes to ” ying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors ” ying around, I have more reasons not to like ” ying. I think the cost of ” ying has discouraged me from enjoying the ” ight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extradite myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of ” ying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I ” y just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like ” ying has to do with the seats.

Big Bend Hospice volunteers provide companionship to patients and respite for their caregivers. Often patients will share more about their pain, their family dynamics and life stories with a volunteer rather than with a BBH team member or their family. Many volunteers feel they get more from the patients than they could ever give,Ž Allbritton said. Big Bend Hospice is Wakulla Countys original hometown hospice serving the County residents since 1983. Big Bend Hospice is a private nonpro“ t organization that provides compassionate care to individuals with limited life expectancy and their families offering care teams consisting of an experienced RN, a family counselor, a home health aide, board certi“ ed music therapist, a chaplain and trained volunteers to every patient. For more information, please call 926-9308. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSVolunteers of Big Bend Hospice attend appreciation luncheon at Welcome Center. Brock receives presidential advocacy award Special to The NewsAs the mercury rises, physicians at the local Doctors Express urgent care center are seeing a hike in heat related injuries and illnesses. The heat has patients coming in with sunburn, heat cramps and heat exhaustion. Heat is the No. 1 weather-related killer in the United States, resulting in hundreds of deaths each year. On average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than ” oods, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined. The good newsheat related illnesses and injuries are totally preventable. Age Affects Heat Vulnerability Studies indicate that, other things being equal, the severity of heat disorders tends to increase with age. Conditions that cause heat cramps in a 17-year-old may result in heat exhaustion in someone 40 years old and heat stroke in a person over 60. Sweat It! The problem: We often dont see the heat as a health threat. We sweat and thats our bodies way of keeping cool. But, when faced with extreme heat, sweating may not be enough. When the body cant cool itself properly, the body temperature rises rapidly which leads to heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and can damage the brain or other organs. Doctors Express docs offer some tips on how to stay happy, healthy, hydrated and in the summer heat. How To Stay Healthy in Heat: Drink plenty of water Drink extra water if you are consuming dehydrating caffeinated or alcoholic beverages Avoid prime heat hours by going outside only early or late in the day Seek air conditioning wherever possible Dress for the heat by wearing lightweight and light-colored clothing Never leave a person or pet in a parked car even if a window is open a crack, it can heat up in seconds If you start feeling overheated, get out of the heat and sun immediately The doctors prescription for staying cool ice cream alternating with gelato.Special to The NewsThe Florida Association of Counties presented Wakulla County Commissioner Alan Brock with the Presidential Advocacy Award during the 2012 FAC Annual Conference and Exposition in Orange County. The Presidential Advocacy Award is presented to those commissioners who show a commitment to protecting local control and advocating on behalf of home rule. It is important to me that the “ nes paid in response to Deepwater Horizon are used in the areas that have been directly impacted by the oil spill, and we are all working together to make sure that Congress knows that is what we need, and to see to it that they deliver,Ž Brock said. Brock is committed to ensuring passage of the federal RESTORE Act so that Floridas Panhandle economy and environment will be fully restored following the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill. It is public servants like Commissioner Brock that recognize full recovery from the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill could take years,Ž said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley, His effort to help pass the RESTORE Act will ensure that monies BP is “ ned go to those communities directly impacted and not the general treasury.Ž The Presidential Advocacy Award is given annually to those commissioners from around the state that take the time to advocate state and federal legislators in Tallahassee or at home to protect the ideal that government closest to the people governs best. FAC 2012 Presidential Advocacy Award winners were: Ilene Lieberman, Broward County; Lois Wexler, Broward County; Robert Skidmore, Charlotte County; Doug Conkey, Clay County; Grover Robinson, Escambia County; Smokey Parrish, Franklin County; Bill Williams, Gulf County; Warren Yeager, Gulf County; Cecilia Jones, Walton County; Dave Parisot, Okaloosa County; Lane Lynchard, Santa Rosa County; Alan Brock, Wakulla County; Les Miller, Hillsborough County; Bryan Desloge, Leon County; Ed Ciampi, Martin County; Patrick Hayes, Martin County; Frank Attkisson, Osceola County; Susan Latvala, Pinellas County; Ken Welch, Pinellas County; Ken Eubanks, Putnam County; Brad Purcell, Putnam County; Stephen Fulford, Jefferson County; John Nelson, Jefferson County; Hines Boyd, Jefferson County; Betsey Barfield, Jefferson County; Danny Monroe, Jefferson County; and, Ray Judah, Lee County. For 80 years, the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has represented the diverse interests of Floridas counties, emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule … the concept that government closest to the people governs best. The Florida Association of Counties helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through advocacy, education and collaboration.

Riversink Elementary, Crawfordville Elementary, Shadeville Elementary and Wakulla Middle School each earned an AŽ rating. Medart Elementary missed an AŽ by 2 points on an 800 point scale and Riversprings Middle missed by 9 points on a 900 point scale. Both schools earned a high BŽ. COAST Charter School earned a CŽ. Throughout Florida, 15 percent of schools grades K-8 dropped from an AŽ they earned last year, most likely due to the tougher standards and higher cut scores. High school grades are not released until much later in the school year due to 50 percent of their grade being based on data that comes in later such as Advanced Placement scores and Graduation Rate. Wakulla High School is on track to do as well or better than last year when they earned enough points for an AŽ but were lowered to a BŽ due to some at-risk students taking “ ve years to graduate instead of four. We know that the movement towards tough national standards will continue to increase, but we are ready in terms of the teacher professional development that takes place continuously in Wakulla. Our mission is always to prepare our students to be competitive with other students across the country and throughout the world,Ž noted Superintendent Miller.Schools earn top gradesVolleyball tryouts coming up on Aug. 6 and 7 for WHSWMS football drills start July 19 Wakulla students participate in STEM projectSpecial to The NewsWhen the last school bell rang this summer, thousands of Florida high school students headed for fun in the sun, summer jobs, or maybe just lazy days relaxing after a hard year of academics. But for a group of highly motivated ninth and 10th graders in Floridas small, rural school districts, the end of the school year signaled the beginning of summer learning challenges staged by the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars project. During the “ rst project year, 612 gifted and academically talented students were selected from 27 school districts in three regions of the state, the Northwest, Northeast and South Central, to take part in collaborative, hands-on experiences in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), explore STEM career paths never imagined in many of their limited world experiences, and to develop leadership skills. FloridaLearns STEM Scholars is a three-year long project, funded through Floridas Race to the Top initiative from the Florida Department of Education. The FloridaLearns STEM Scholars initiative was launched in July 2011 with a vision to help Florida address its urgent and important STEM talent development challenge by focusing on some of Floridas most underserved students, its gifted and talented in the rural regions of the state. The Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC) located in Chipley, the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC) in Lake Placid and the North Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC) in Palatka are working in partnership to help transform teaching, learning and leadership in the areas of STEM. The $4.5 million dollar project addresses a serious gap in STEM education for gifted and talented students in the states small, rural school districts served by their three rural-based regional educational service organizations and is identi“ ed as Floridas Rural STEM Education Initiative. Over June and July, a series of regional Summer Challenge programs are providing opportunities for students to become immersed in STEMMING. The series of Summer Challenges were launched the week of June 11 through 14. Students from Gadsden, Liberty and Wakulla counties came together at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, to take part in the D3(Dream, Design, and Do) NanoChallenge where students designed instruments to test speci“ c materials in order to determine the characteristics of the materials. Students were then challenged to use the tools they developed to “ nd materials most suited for speci“ c tasks. As a team, they explored a novel ethical issue in nanotechnology and designed and constructed a device to simulate the manner in which the electron force microscope works. Jose Sanchez, assistant director of the Center for Integrating Research and Learning at the NHMFL, treated students to a tour of the facility. Participants also had the opportunity to interact with scientists Dr. Maitri Warusawithana, who showed the equipment used in molecular beam epitaxy and Bob Goddard, and Jonathan Ludwig, who demonstrated how scanning electron and atomic force microscopes work, respectively. In a series of career presentations, Darrel Tremaine, a geochemist and Angela Sutton, a chemical engineer and Safety Director at the NHMFL described their workplace and academic preparation for their careers and Dr. Matt Eby, a nanobioscientist, shared cutting edge developments in his occupational area … nanobiology. STEM Mentor teachers Angela Sapp (Gadsden County), David Shuler (Liberty County) and Suzanne Fielder (Wakulla County) accompanied the students and assisted Dr. Mabry Gaboardi and Jesse Smithyman throughout the weeks activities. Preparing these students for the next phase of the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars project in the upcoming 2012-13 school year, the second year of the three-year funding initiative is an important goal of the Summer Challenges. By stimulating excitement, encouraging deeper understanding of the STEM disciplines, and motivating greater inquiry and learning, STEM stakeholders from business and industry, economic development, workforce agencies and educational leaders are looking forward with excitement to Floridas ability to help produce the STEM talent needed to sustain and advance Floridas critical economic future by tapping the states underserved small and rural gifted and talented students potential … home grown. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSStudents from three counties, including Wakulla, participate in the FloridaLearns STEM scholars project.

Page 8A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsDespite the heavy rains from Debby and the stained water, the wind that seems to always blow on the weekend and the hot temperatures, the fishing is still pretty darn good for this time of year. There are also plenty of scallops around and folks are getting their limits fairly quickly. They moved the Big Bend Saltwater Classic to July 6-8 so that gag grouper could be one of the categories. As it turned out, Fathers Day Weekend back in June was absolutely horrible weather-wise so everything worked out for the best. The biggest “ sh of the tournament was a 58-pound cobia caught by Joseph Tatum. Michael Cragg weighed in a 41.65 king, Algy Wade came in with a 24.6-pound red snapper and Russell Miller weighed in a 32.5 pound gag grouper. All of these “ sh placed “ rst in the recreational division and were weighed-in at Port St. Joe Marina. In the masters division the team of Cari Lynn weighed in a whopping 50.9-pound grouper. The only record that was set this year was in the juniors division. Alex Kadel brought to the scales a monster king that weighed 49 pounds. Congratulations to these and all the other winners. Jeff May from Carrollton, Ga., was down last week and was able to make it out a few days when the wind didnt blow. They caught some nice grouper and snapper and their son Jason caught a 54-pound cobia. They were “ shing out near V Tower and said they saw several schools of big cobia. Their biggest snapper was about 14 pounds. I just got off the phone with Capt. Randy Peart who guides out of the Econ“ na in the spring and fall and at St. George during the summer. Randy said they had the best week of “ shing over there last week than they have seen all year. Big trout and lots of them. He said on Monday they caught “ ve Spanish between 4 and 5 pounds and he is seeing lot of triple tail around the buoys and crab markers. Capt. David Fife has been catching quite a few nice ” ounder and told me last night after catching bait he stopped at a hole in Oyster Bay and caught two nice reds in just a few minutes using live mud minnows. Capt. Jerry Alexander “ shed last Saturday and said they caught a lot of Spanish using sardines under a ” oat. He “ shed in 15 to 20 feet of water. There are some big reds out on Turkey Point Shoals and plenty of tarpon. The water is stained but you can see them moving over the white sand spots. One of my neighbors went out last Wednesday morning and said they caught their limit of trout to 22 inches in a matter of hours. They started at “ rst light and had a good incoming tide. She said they “ shed the Gulp under a Cajun Thunder and all of their “ sh came in 4 to 5 feet of water. If they got less than that they wouldnt catch anything but small ones. Yesterday Phil Sharp and I “ shed for about two hours on the last of the rise and had six keeper trout to 21 inches. All were caught on the New Penny Gulp under a ” oat. Last Monday I took a group from Tulsa, Okla., who had never “ shed saltwater and we had a pretty good day. It was awfully hot but the “ sh didnt seem to mind. We caught two limits of trout, two small cobia, four ” ounder, three Spanish and quite a few blue“ sh. They were sunburned but happy when they left. I “ shed again on Thursday with some folks from Georgia but we wont talk about that trip. That was one of those days that I wish I had taken up golf. Dont forget that red snapper season closed on the 17th. Be careful if youre heading out scalloping and dont forget that diver down flag. If you are out of your boat and just wading around in very shallow water you are suppose to have that flag displayed. Good luck and good “ shing!Despite the heat, the stained water and weekend wind – shing’s good From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL FWC NewsIf you go saltwater “ shing in Florida, researchers with the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission want to learn about your experiences and opinions through the new online Florida Saltwater Fishing Panel. Anyone with a valid Florida saltwater “ shing license or Persons with Disabilities Resident Hunting and Fishing License, as well as exempt residents age 65 and older, can sign up to take part in the panel, which begins this summer. Registered panel members will be asked to complete one web-based survey per month for a one-year period. The surveys will each take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. While most of each survey will focus on the anglers last saltwater “ shing trip in Florida during the previous month, surveys may also include questions about current or proposed “ shing regulations, licenses, conservation of “ sh stocks and management effectiveness. FWC researchers will use survey data to estimate the economic impact and value of saltwater “ shing in Florida, to assess the importance of fish hatcheries, to estimate fishing effort and catch rates and to describe angler behavior. The FWC will take information gathered from panelists into consideration as part of management and policy-making decisions. Panel members will receive a coupon from West Marine for each monthly survey they complete. Participants will also have the opportunity to review summary results from the monthly surveys. More than 200,000 anglers who provided their email addresses when they purchased their licenses have already received emails asking them to register for the panel. Those licensed anglers who have not received an email can sign up at www. fwcsaltwater“ shingpanel. com, by clicking Register for the Panel.Ž Interested anglers must register by Aug. 20 to receive the September survey. However, new members will be accepted throughout the duration of the panels operation. As the panel is fully web-based, a panel member must have Internet access and a current email address.FWC wants to hear about saltwater “ shingFWC NewsNew editions of manatee and sea turtle decals are available at local tax collectors of“ ces across the state.

During the meeting, members discussed the progression of our communications trailer. The last few items have been ordered to increase the antenna strength needed to be back on line. With the help of the communications team from Station Panama City, we hope to be up and running very soon. It has been a long road to get our radio communications back up and running. Larry Kolk received his sustained service award at the conclusion of the meeting. This award is given for every 750 hours of service. Larry is a valuable asset to our team and we look forward to his next award! Membership training was held after the meeting on AUXData. This is the information system that monitors all of our volunteer activities from public education … safety patrols … and vessel inspections to writing this column for you every week. The training Duane Treadon wrote about a few weeks ago was relayed to the membership. While some do not “ nd data entry interesting, Duane has a great way to make it all understandable and engaging for everyone. By properly entering our work into the AUXData system, we are able to account for all the work we do. This better allows the Auxiliary and Coast Guard to advocate for our needs. Last week, you read about Navigation Rule #7, The risk of collision. After spending a week in Savannah for work, this rule became even more evident. Watching the large container ships do a “ ne dance with the tugs and hearing the long blasts of the horns as the ships rounded corners, at all hours of the day and night, really brought this to life. At one point, two container ships passed in the river, and while the shore view appeared as if there was not enough room, the ships and tugs made it look effortless!

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS What is it like to grow up as a diver? Many times Ive been referred to as a “ sh rather than a young woman. With both my parents being avid divers, I suppose that I grew up with saltwater in my veins. I remember snorkeling before I knew how to swim, and as those dreaded swimming lessons came, I refused to give up my “ ns. At the age of 10 my “ rst diving lesson came from my father, his words were, Breathe normally and dont hold your breath!Ž Looking back now I can tell that watching oceanographic documentaries and mimicking how a lion seal would swim was probably a strange behavior. But what I remember the most was the magic of it all. When I was 13 I had the opportunity to dive at the Aquarius habitat, now the last underwater habitat in the USA, and rather than looking at the amazing feat of a home under the sea, I was playing with the “ sh. I was imagining that they were talking to me, just as if we were waiting for the bus on any street in America, and they would divulge what their daily lives were like. As life moved forward, opportunities arose that many people would strive for a lifetime to achieve. At 16 my father insisted that my big brother and I would be taking a cavern diving class so that, God forbid we ended up in a cave, we would have and idea of how to get out. I was hooked. I remember the moment well, as we descended into the last dive of the class, at Orange Grove Spring in the Peacock Springs State Park, the powerful lights of the divers illuminating this vast cavern that held at least half a dozen divers comfortably, the rocky crags hiding holes yet to be explored. The sheer potential of that dive drove me into cave diving just two years later. At the age of 19, I began my new journey into diving, surface support. Now most people would say surface support isnt diving! Well, I say that you dont know how youre diving until you know how your equipment is working during a dive. I spent the better part of the next four years learning how scuba equipment of all shapes and sizes worked. I cant say that I found myself underwater much, but the times that I did were magical. In Rhode Island, I dove the U-853 Submarine, a U-boat that came within just a few miles of the U.S. coastline during World War II. At 110 feet, all that remains off of Block Island is a shattered shell of a boat. Looking at the remains haunted me; the cold tendrils of the Atlantic shivering down my spine, knowing how all hands were lost when depth charges tore the submarine into three distinct pieces. After a few years of barely diving due to my pursuit of an Electrical Engineering Degree, I found my way home and directly in a re-breather class. Most divers seldom have the means or the need to dive one of these amazing pieces of technology, but due to weight restrictions for my heart, it was either give up diving, or go high tech. Mixing re-breathers and cave diving meant that I could now explore to the back and beyond to my hearts content. Now at the ripe old age of 24, I am a re-breather, cave diver-certi“ ed and trained to perform maintenance most of the equipment that I may encounter during my travels. And this is only the beginning. ;) UnderwaterWakullaBy Nicole Stanton Of WakullaHeating & AirServing Wakulla & Franklin Counties850-926-5592Sales & Service All Makes & Models3232 Crawfordville Hwy. € CrawfordvilleOwned & Operated by Gary Limbaugh Lic. # CAC1814304 •Interior Remodeling •Doors •Floors •Bathroom/Kitchen Remodeling •Decks/Barns/Fences • Portable, Private, Outdoor Showers FREE Estimates • Licensed & Insured • Lic. #7827(850) 745–8771 • Cell (850) 570–1968 JESUS NEW!

I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to ” y the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of ” ying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to ” y on airplanes.Ž It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a well-known fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correctŽ is a mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a re” ection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you ” y the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrowŽ (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

Spiny Tailed Fairy Shrimp found in local puddles Page 12B By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Salvation Army is one of many organizations that arrived to aid Wakulla County victims shortly after Tropical Storm Debby hit the area. Were the front line,Ž said Capt. Julio Da Silva, Salvation Army commanding of“ cer for the Big Bend. Da Silva and his team have been in the county, speci“ cally the parking lot of the Big Top Supermarket in Panacea, since Tuesday, June 26. Continued on Page 5BSalvation Army is still offering help in WakullaBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netTo help alleviate the problem of swarming mosquitoes in the county due to ” ooding from Tropical Storm Debby, the Wakulla County Commissioners approved spending money for aerial spraying in three areas previously sprayed by air, plus Panacea. Were being overwhelmed,Ž said Pad Juarez, mosquito control director and health department administrator. They have received 500 requests for mosquito spraying in the Crawfordville area alone. He and his staff have continued to provide truck spraying for residents who request it, but are having dif“ culty meeting all the needs in a timely manner, he said. They are currently truck spraying seven days a week in two shifts. The aerial spraying will help provide some relief to residents. The three areas that will be aerial sprayed with pesticide for adult mosquitoes are the most heavily populated areas in the county, including Crawfordville, St. Marks and Sopchoppy. Aerial spraying will also be done in Panacea. The commissioners approved the action at an emergency called meeting regarding the response to Debby held on Thursday, July 12, at the Wakulla County Community Center. At that meeting, Juarez said the county had already submitted an application for aerial spraying to the Department of Agriculture. Juarez was noti“ ed on Monday, July 16, that the county had been approved for aerial spraying, as well as supplemental truck spraying street by street. The Department of Agriculture made the choice to also do truck spraying, he said. The county was approved for public assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, so will only be required to pay for a small portion of the aerial spraying. FEMA will provide funding for 75 percent of the cost and the remaining 25 percent will be split between the state and the county. The cost for the county will be around $10,000, according to Juarez. The aerial spraying will not be done in the national forest, state parks or rivers. The sprayers must be 300 feet away from these areas. The county has not been informed when the aerial spraying will occur, but the public will receive plenty of notice before it is done, he said. The county commission also approved the purchase of larvacide for Juarezs staff to put out around the county. FEMA does not pay for larvacide. They will only pay for pesticide for adult mosquitoes. They will pay to get rid of the mosquitoes there now,Ž Juarez said. But to truly deal with the problem, Juarez said they need to do larvacide also. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the state might end up paying the entire 25 percent and the county wouldnt have to pay a dime. They are still waiting to hear from the Florida legislature on whether they agree to pay the entire cost. In addition to aerial spraying, they are also placing larvacide in stagnant waters around the county, Juarez said. And they have also trained employees with the Public Works Department to apply larvacide in standing water they come across in the county. For those who would like their property sprayed, they need to contact the Mosquito Control Department at 926-4010.Aerial spraying for mosquitoes approved MAP SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAreas of the county approved for aerial spraying. WILLIAM SNOWDENCounty Mosquito Control Director Pad Juarez talks to commissioners at an emergency meeting held last week. TROPICAL STORM DEBBY UPDATEBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSince the county was approved for individual assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Disaster Recovery Center opened at the extension of“ ce on July 5, 423 people in Wakulla County have registered for assistance. According to Wakulla Countys initial damage assessment performed prior to being approved for individual assistance, 413 structures sustained some type of damage totaling more than $9 million. Weve exceeded that number identified by the county,Ž said FEMA spokesperson Tim Tyson. Anyone who has damage from the storm is asked to register with FEMA, whether they have insurance or not. Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson said 344 application have been deemed eligible for assistance through FEMA totally a little more than $1 million. The majority of which has been housing assistance. Eligibility depends on a lot of factors, said FEMA spokesperson Tim Tyson. Including whether someone has insurance because FEMA does not duplicate insurance claims. Nearly 330 people have stopped by the DRC in the county, which remains open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. at 84 Cedar Avenue in Crawfordville. Those who sustained damage to their home or business are asked to register with FEMA before stopping by, if possible. This can be done online at www.disasterassistance.gov, by calling FEMA at 1-800-621-3362 or using the FEMA app at m.fema.gov.

The way the service would work is that there will be a link on our website to the catalog of items that we will purchase access to from Overdrive. You will be able to check outŽ access to the material for however long we decide. Then you can sendŽ the book back to us for the next patron or access will be removed automatically at the end of the checkout period. We will begin building our e-book selection focusing on best sellers much like the New Books section in the front of the library and allow our patrons to decide by their requests and usage how large we make the collection. Please understand that the e-book version of a work costs us more than the print version so our beginning this service does not mean by any means that our entire collection will be available in e-book format. We are very excited, however, to begin building this program for our patrons as we continue to grow and adapt into the modern, state of the art library that the citizens of Wakulla County deserve. Ill keep you informed as we get closer to going liveŽ with e-books and am always available to answer any questions you may have. Summer Reading Books Update With the next school year beginning in a month, the demand for the Summer Reading books has gone through the roof at WCPL. While we have multiple copies in our collection of each of the books on the middle and high school reading lists, demand has caused the waiting list for many of them (especially the required books) to grow. If you havent already, we strongly suggest that you place your name on the hold list for any that you are interested in. A few of the hold lists have gotten so long that we cant guarantee for those near the bottom of the list that the book will be available before school begins. If you have any questions or wish to place a hold please contact us at 926-7415. One Heart Storytellers at WCPL Our next Summer Program performance will be this Thursday, July 19, as the husband and wife team One Heart Storytellers return to the library. The Worleys bring their lighthearted stories and songs which will entertain the entire family.

& www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 – Page 3BMYSTERY BOAT ON THE OCHLOCKONEE By BILL McLEAN How many times have you driven across the Ochlockonee River Bridge on U.S. Highway 319 and noticed the remains of the old boat on the Franklin County side of the river? It has been there for more than 80 years, and now all you can see are the ribs at low tide. Did you know that it was a paddlewheel boat, that it was over 50 feet long and 14 feet wide, and that the owner was an artist? Let me tell you what I know about the boat and see if you can help me unravel the mystery. My grandfather built a house on the river in 1948, and our family started going to the river for weekends and summer vacations. Back in the 1950s, the boat was sunken, but the upper part of the boat was still in good condition. The paddlewheel was intact and all of the walls and the upper deck were existing. We didnt pay a lot of attention to the boat; I guess we thought it would always be there. About 1959 or 1960, my older brother and I were taking my mother for a boat ride, and she wanted to go see the paddlewheel boat. There were windows on the side of the old boat, and we pulled alongside so she could see inside. The “ rst thing she saw was a painting on one of the interior walls, and she asked if we thought we could cut out the boards and save the painting. We were able to saw the painting out of the boat, and my mother had it framed. After “ nding the picture, my grandfather asked around Sopchoppy about the history of the boat, and was told that the owner abandoned the boat around 1930, walked away and never came back, and that he was German. He was also told that after some period of time, people removed anything of value, and that it had been there ever since. This was more than 50 years ago, and since then the boat just continued to rot away until all that is left are the ribs. About two years ago, I started looking for information about the boat, hoping to “ nd a picture of the boat and for information about the owner who was the artist. Some people I have talked to believe the boat was the McIntyre Ferry that was used before the bridge was built in 1927. McIntyre was the old lumber town about a mile up river at the railroad trestle. I have also read about several paddlewheel boats that worked on the Ochlockonee River and Crooked River traveling between Carrabelle, McIntyre and St. Marks. They would haul cotton, turpentine and passengers. So it could have been one of these passenger boats. In doing research on the boat, I discovered information about two artists in Wakulla County. The “ rst, is John Piplack, who was one of the artists that painted the ceiling of the Wakulla Springs Hotel about 1935, and we know he was a German. However, the art in the hotel does not resemble the painting that came from the paddlewheel boat. The second, is the art that is painted in the Carter House in Medart. This art does, in some way, resemble the painting from the paddlewheel boat, but we dont know who painted the art in the Carter House. So, can you help me solve the mystery? Do you know anything about the paddlewheel boat? Do you have any old family photographs that might show the boat in the background, or perhaps a picture of the bridge that would show the boat? Do you know any information about either of these artists or about any other artist who might have painted the scene in the old paddlewheel boat on the Ochlockonee? If so, contact me, Bill McLean in Moultrie, Ga., at (229) 941-5127. This month I think it proper to feature some information provided to me by Bill McLean from Moultrie, Ga. I met Bill several months ago when he stopped by the Wakulla Historical Society Museum in Crawfordville while researching a large boat which was apparently beached and abandoned on the banks of the Ochlockonee River on the Franklin County side of the bridge at U.S. Highway 319. I recently spoke with Bill and learned he has pretty much exhausted all leads in his efforts to identify that boat, which has been there since at least the 1950s. I wont go into more detail as Bill did an excellent job in doing that and I have simply included herein his detailed report for all to read. I want to feature his story because our history is such an elusive thing. As we all know, it does not take long at all for factual information to either become completely lost or fact becomes “ ction when people speculate and others, not knowing any difference, begin to repeat the speculation as fact. Thanks to people like Bill McLean, there are many who put in the time and effort to try to recover aspects of our history before it is lost. So please, folks, take a look at his report and if you have any information that may be helpful, contact Bill and pass along the information that may solve this mystery.

Focusing on booking acoustic-oriented acts who have crafted enough original music to perform without covers for at least two hours, it has been the mission of Posh Java to create a space where customers can share an evening out in a comfortable and friendly environment, for a very reasonable price, and experience excellent music in an intimate setting. I have had to say no to some performers who have contacted us … like the heavy metal surf band from Las Vegas who offered up a hoola-hooping exotic dancer during their loudly plugged-in, instrumental show,Ž said Dix Bishop. But, then again, this isnt the type of show our audience comes out to see.Ž The genres of music that have been featured at Posh have included blues, bluegrass, jazz, Celtic, folk, country, classical, Americana, Old Time, roots, honky tonk, and some combinations of styles of music, that original performers often have made up to suit their varied interests and inclinations; genres such as Swampgroove,Ž LeftNeck,Ž and Soul Peppered with Blues.Ž Posh Java is not only a concert hall, but also features locally crafted and fair trade gifts, a caf/coffee shop and bakery; a small organic and gourmet grocery shop, and a farmers market every Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Posh Java will be working toward gearing up for the fall, and will not be hosting concerts in August. However, the concerts will resume once again in September. Check local media, visit poshjava.com, friendŽ Posh Java on Facebook, or join the email list poshjava@gmail.com, to “ nd out about the exciting months ahead, featuring artists who will be visiting from as far as Ireland, and a lot of places in between, including many favorite local acts. Beginning on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 8 p.m., Posh Java will host Tallahasseebased blues performer Randall Big DaddyŽ Webster (www.bigdaddyblues.com). Returning for his fourth performance at Posh, Webster has endeared audiences with his riveting vocals and blues peppered with soul, jazz and life!Ž On Saturday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m., the boogie woogie, blues, ragtime and jazz, piano of Steve Sternberg (www.stevesterberg.com), will be featured at Posh for the “ rst time. And on Saturday, Sept. 29, a second Posh performance from the popular duo, Belmont & Jones (Charlie Engstrom and Carrie Hamby), will offer traditional 1920s-30s style blues … a style almost forgotten.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 – Page 5BContinued from Page 1BThey have served 3,500 hot meals thanks to their kitchen on wheels. They have also given out 1,800 snacks, 2,500 cleanup kits, 7,000 cases of water, 2,000 hygiene kits and 4,000 inspirational devotions. But they offer more than just food and supplies, Da Silva said. They offer comfort. Emergency Disaster Director George Schwender said when the Salvation Army arrives and provides two meals a day and other items, it is one last thing that person who lost everything has to worry about. Its almost like were hope,Ž Schwender said. He quoted one of the Salvation Armys messages, to be a shield in the storm,Ž and said he felt they were doing just that through offering assistance and counseling. Chef Pat Williams, her husband Tom and son Brian, from Panama City, have been in Panacea for almost two weeks volunteering their time and preparing and serving what they call hearty meals to people in Wakulla County. We make food we would eat at home,Ž Tom Williams said. Not only do they provide meals, they also provide an ear to listen to the stories of the disaster victims and they problems and issues they are facing. They need somebody to be a friend to them,Ž Tom Williams said. Pat Williams added, We enjoy doing it. And were doing it for God.Ž Everyone can help in some way, they said. We can cook for God,Ž Tom Williams said. Spring Creek resident Ila Gray heard the Salvation Army was handing out cleanup kits, so she drove to Panacea to get one. She sustained some damage to her home, but said she was lucky. Gray was appreciative of the help given by the Salvation Army and other organizations. Theyve done some really wonderful things,Ž she said. On Monday, the Salvation Army moved to the Disaster Recovery Center and began the second phase of disaster assistance, case management. They are no longer serving meals in Panacea. Prior to this, they were giving out meals and kits to anyone who approached them, now in order to receive assistance flood victims must have registered with FEMA. Were offering a hand up, not a hand out,Ž Da Silva said. Da Silva said there is no timeline for how long they will be in the county. We will stay until we are no longer needed,Ž he said. Until the need is met.Ž The Salvation Army Thrift Store will be holding a clothing and furniture drive on Saturday, July 21, to collect items for disaster victims. For more information, call 222-0304.Continued from Page 1B Statewide, $11,773,992 has been given out to individuals and 8,203 people have registered with FEMA, according to FEMA spokesperson Tim Tyson. Nearly 600 people are registering a day, he added. In Wakulla County, they are seeing about 16 registrations a day. PUBLIC ASSISTANCE Along with individual assistance, public assistance was also approved for Wakulla County, which is available to state, tribal, local governments and certain types of private non-pro“ t organizations. The amount of money that will be given to the county for damages from Debby will depend on eligible projects, Tyson said. Theres no cap on this disaster,Ž Tyson said. These projects can include debris removal, roads, bridges, culverts and public infrastructure, Tyson said. FEMA will cover 75 percent of the project and typically the state and county would split the remaining 25 percent, he said. County Administrator David Edwards said the initial damage estimate is $12.2 million, which they believe is fairly close to the “ nal estimate. Once a public entity registers for assistance, the state will contact the emergency management director for an applicants brie“ ng, which will explain what is eligible for assistance and what is not. Following that meeting, a FEMA specialist will hold a kick off meeting to help the applicant “ ll out its application, Tyson said. By this time, many counties have already spent the money and will typically be reimbursed, he said. Nelson said the countys kick off meeting will be Monday, July 23. PUBLIC WORKS UPDATES The Wakulla County Public Works Department has been working tirelessly to “ x the damages to the countys infrastructure since Debby hit. On July 12, Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said they had more than 400 work orders out in the county. Our transportation system is up and going,Ž Fleming said. Most roads are passable, but Smith Creek Road at Syfrette Creek Bridge and Bostic Pelt Road are still closed as of Tuesday, July 17. Smith Creek Road is under repair and should be open soon, however, Bostic Pelt Road is a long term mitigation project, Fleming said. Its going to be a long process,Ž he said. There seems to be a new issue every day, he said. Water was rushing so fast through culverts that it has caused many roads to fail after the fact. There was a cave in on Smith Creek Highway and Fleming said they have temporary repaired the road and are working with the Department of Transportation to see who is responsible for “ xing it. He is working on a list of projects to present to FEMA for reimbursement. BUILDING PERMITS Disaster victims who have had damage to their homes and do not have insurance received some good news at the commission meeting on July 16. The commission agreed to waive the Development Plan Amendment fee of $30, which is required before applying for a building permit. They also agreed to pay up to $200 for building permits. Building Official Rod Revell said if anyone has to perform mechanical, electrical or structural work on their home, they would be required to get a permit. Commissioner Mike Stewart said a homeowner is required to get a building permit for something as simple as changing sheet rock and putting in insulation. A monkey can put in insulation,Ž Stewart said. He wanted to see the county try and help those people, especially many who are living paycheck to paycheck. Only those people who were affected by Tropical Storm Debby and do not have insurance would be eligible to receive help in paying for a building permit. The deadline to be eligible for this assistance is Oct. 1. LOST DOCUMENTS People who lost important documents in the ” ood can get free copies from the tax collectors of“ ce. This includes duplicate titles, registrations, drivers licenses, ID cards and handicap titles. For more information, call the tax collector at 926-3371. ASSISTANCE VOUCHERS Flood victims can receive a $25 voucher to redeem at Goodwill Industries, 2173 Crawfordville Highway. Each person is eligible for one voucher. The vouchers are being distributed by the American Red Cross. The Salvation Army is also giving out clothing and furniture vouchers that can be redeemed at the Salvation Army Thrift Store in Tallahassee, 2131 Jackson Bluff Road.

By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 13 … Fireworks hit the capital city the week after the Fourth of July, with sparks ” ying over the resignation of a besieged university president, allegations of inappropriate behavior in the lieutenant governors of“ ce and a highpro“ le court case upholding a tough Florida drug law. Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle filed a flurry of financial disclosures, giving the public a good “ rst look at campaign contributions following the redrawing of political boundaries. Gov. Rick Scott spent the week at the Farnborough International Air Show in London, ” ying the Florida ” ag as he met with aviation executives and tourism of“ cials as part of his continuing mission to attract businesses and tourists to the state and bring jobs, jobs, and jobs. FAMUS AMMONS GOES DOWN FOLLOWING HAZING DEATH Florida A&M University President James Ammons was the latest school of“ cial to pay a price for the November hazing death of Marching 100Ž drum major Robert Champion. Ammons, who makes upwards of $325,000 a year, resigned mid-week amid continuing fallout from Champions death and a lingering list of other concerns at the historically black university ranging from poor student-retention rates and sexual abuse to budget de“ cits and accounting fraud. Ammons resignation came a month after receiving a vote of no-con“ dence from the FAMU Board of Trustees and nearly eight months after Champions death. The resignation was tendered the same day Champions family “ led a lawsuit in Orlando against FAMU and the company that operated the charter bus in which the hazing allegedly occurred. Ammons said he would stay as president until Oct. 11 and remain on campus after that time as tenured professor. Trustees will meet Monday by telephone to discuss his resignation. Champion died on a charter bus in November after the universitys renowned marching band performed at the annual Florida Classic football game in Orlando. Thirteen band members have been charged in Champions death. Of those, 11 face felony hazing charges and could face up to six years in prison. Two others were charged with misdemeanors. While the hazing case has drawn national attention, some university-system of“ cials have been as troubled by other issues, including allegations of fraud involving summaries of an audit that hadnt actually been done and a sexual assault of a minor at FAMUs research school. This is not about hazing, this is about leadership or lack of leadership at FAMU,Ž said Trustee Rufus Montgomery. There have been over 30 serious issues over the past year that have come before this board ƒ.This all came under the watch of the current president. For the last seven months weve danced around it week after week, problem after problemƒ.Ž LAWSUIT: CARROLL CAUGHT IN COMPROMISING POSITION Controversy swirled within Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carrolls office this week as a former aide said she caught Carroll in a compromising positionŽ with another aide shortly before getting “ red. Former aide Carletha Cole, who faces criminal charges for sharing a recorded conversation of Carrolls chief of staff with a reporter for The Florida TimesUnion, made the accusations of sexual impropriety as part of her defense. The allegations were included in response to a request by prosecutors to seal some of the court documents in Coles upcoming trial. The lieutenant governor has vehemently denied the accusations. Unfortunately, as an elected official, character deformation that is totally fabricated can occur like this and there is not much I can do,Ž Carroll wrote in response to an email from Mary Jane and George Duryea of Lake Mary. The media loves to put out sensational stories without doing due diligence to verify the authenticity.Ž Coles motion portrays a dysfunctional of“ ce where Carrolls aides frequently recorded conversations and the lieutenant governor pushed for a website where fans could follow her. It also says Steve MacNamara, former chief of staff for Gov. Rick Scott, viewed Carroll as a loose cannon,Ž in the words of the “ ling. But its most sensational anecdote concerns Cole inadvertently walking in on what she believed to be a sexual encounter between Carroll and a female employee. When she entered the of“ ce, she found the Lieutenant Governor and her Travel Aide, Beatriz Ramos, in what can only be described as a compromising position,Ž according to a motion filed by Coles lawyer. Cole passed a polygraph late last year concerning her claim. Polygraphs are not admissible in court, but details of the test were included in the court “ le. According a report from the polygraph expert, a retired FDLE chief polygraph examiner, Cole answered yesŽ to questions about the incident, including Did you ever observe Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll and ƒ Ramos in a sexually compromising position in the Capitol?Ž DRUG LAW UPHELD The Florida Supreme Court ruled a state drug possession statute can force some defendants to prove their innocence, in one of the most closely watched drug cases decided in recent years. In a 5-2 ruling, the court upheld a 2002 Florida law that says defendants busted with drugs are presumed to have known the substance they were holding was illegal. And if they claim they didnt, the law requires them to prove that to a jury. The provision puts Florida at odds with at least 48 other states that require prosecutors to convince a jury that defendants knew they were carrying illegal drugs. Under the Florida law upheld Thursday, the state still must prove that defendants knew they were in possession of something. For example, if drugs are found in the trunk of a car, the state would have to prove the defendant knew that some substance was there. The high court was asked to weigh in on the case after a state circuit judge in Manatee County last year threw out 46 drug possession cases, saying they con” icted with a recent federal court opinion that found the law unconstitutional. Lower federal court decisions arent binding on state courts, but some state judges have dismissed cases based on the federal ruling. That led to the Manatee case being sent directly to the states highest court. STATE TO RELEASE VOTER LIST State of“ cials will release a list of 180,000 names at the center of a controversy over attempts to remove non-citizens from the voting rolls, after determining that the information is a public record, according to the Department of State. The collection is essentially the master list that the Secretary of States of“ ce used to come up with a sampling of 2,700 names of suspected non-citizens that was then sent to county elections supervisors. Supervisors have since said that many of the names either belong to citizens or to people who cant be contacted. Some non-citizens have been removed from the rolls as part of the voter purge. In late June, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle rebuffed a request by the U.S. Department of Justice to issue a restraining order blocking the state from continuing its purge efforts, but only after receiving assurance from the state that it was no longer actively pursuing the initiative. At least two other lawsuits have been “ led against the state, which is in turn suing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to gain access to a federal database that of“ cials say would make future efforts more accurate. CAMPAIGNS/GROUPS ANNOUNCE SECOND QTR FINANCES Large chunks of money flowed during the past three months to House, Senate and Supreme Court candidates who are trying to win high-pro“ le campaigns or capture vacant seats. The campaign numbers were the “ rst round to be seen since new maps for legislative and congressional districts were approved. A prime example is former Senate President Tom Lee, a Brandon Republican who collected $199,585 in contributions as he tries to return to the Senate in District 24. Lee is locked in a primary campaign against Rep. Rachel Burgin, R-Riverview, as they seek to replace Sen. Ronda Storms, who made a surprise announcement in May that she would not seek re-election. Burgin raised $50,248 during the years second quarter and, combined with money she raised before Storms announcement, has an overall total of $122,223. Candidates faced a Friday deadline for “ ling updated campaign-“ nance reports. Another example is a South Florida Senate race that pits two incumbents whose districts were redrawn as part of the oncea-decade reapportionment process. Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale, reported raising $106,196 during the quarter, giving her an overall total of $366,767. Candidates werent the only ones raising money. A committee closely aligned with Gov. Rick Scott collected $2.85 million in contributions during the past three months. The Lets Get to Work Committee has hauled in a total of nearly $3.8 million in 2012 … more than two years before Scott is expected to seek re-election. Between April 4 and July 3, the committee collected nine contributions of $100,000 or more, as money came from companies and people with interests in issues such as energy, health care and gambling. The biggest contributors during the second quarter were Florida Power & Light Co., casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and prominent investor H. Wayne Huizenga, with each giving $250,000 to the committee. STORY OF THE WEEK: FAMU President James Ammons steps down. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Weve got the FAMU students on trial this fall in the Champion case, we have no band this fall, weve got a drop in enrollment coming, and I read the other day the Florida Senates (considering) investigating the school. I mean, come on, you all, we need to deal with this.Ž FAMU Trustee Rufus Montgomery expressing his frustration over the slow pace of reforms at the university. Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comWEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Resignations, scandal, campaign bucks ood capitalBy MARGIE MENZELTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 16 – After winning access to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security database of non-citizens living in Florida, Gov. Rick Scott said he sees no reason why the state’s 67 elections supervisors shouldn’t return to removing ineligible voters from the rolls. But the supervisors, many of whom have resisted the purge, say they’re not ready to trust the new lists without reviewing them rst – especially with less than four months remaining until the November election. “My worst nightmare is we get close to a presidential election, and someone challenges maybe 100,000 possible non-citizens at the polls on Election Day,” said Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall. “If that happens, we won’t get our results for weeks.” The state appeared to win a months-long struggle with the federal government Saturday over use of the Systematic Alien Veri cation for Entitlements, or SAVE, database. The state maintained that it had the right to use the list, while DHS said Florida hadn’t provided all the information needed for that. The state eventually sued the feds for access to the database, and Florida of cials said in recent weeks they’ve supplied the information the feds wanted. Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner quickly sent a letter Saturday to elections supervisors, suggesting that the SAVE material would allow the purge to resume. “You know, it’s very reliable data, so I can’t imagine they’re not going to go forward and make sure,” Scott told CNN Monday. “’Cause I don’t know anybody – any supervisor of elections or anybody in our state – that thinks non-U.S. citizens ought to be voting in our races.” Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho said supervisors don’t know when they’ll get the lists or how accurate they’ll be. He said Scott and Detzner are inexperienced at running statewide elections. “But those who have been here in 2000 and 2004 realize that if you produce a list that’s highly inaccurate, in all probability what you’re going to do is disenfranchise legal voters, and I’m sure that’s not what anybody wants to do,” he said. Voting rights groups are also worried about the timing. Supervisors in wait and see mode over new lists 5 Congratulations! Youve successfully registered your thewakullanews.com user account.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 – Page 7B -Janet Special to The NewsA lot has changed for 21st-century women, but one thing hasnt: Moms still juggle insanely busy lives and their needs usually fall last on the list, says Columbia Universitycerti“ ed health coach Beth Aldrich. That includes eating … as in, really loving what you eat. Because you didnt really love that bag of chips you downed while watching An Affair to RememberŽ for the 200th time, did you? How could you?Ž asks Aldrich, author of the award-winning new book, Real Moms Love to Eat (www.RealMomsLoveToEat.com). Who could possibly be aware of chips with Cary Grant on the screen?Ž Its wonderful to take pleasure in food, she says. Its even OK to eat the things we shouldnt every once in awhile … just be sure to savor every bite. Eating in front of the TV is not savoring,Ž Aldrich says. There are also plenty of great healthy ingredients that you can turn into new foods to love, even healthier versions of those favorite comfort foods from childhood. Youll finish meals feeling energized, emotionally satis“ ed and best of all, not guilty. And, oh yeah! Youll look great in your skinny jeans!Ž Aldrich offers ways to kick off the romance: € Make it all about YOU : Get back to the basics, remembering the pleasure inherent in the food experiences of your childhood. Think of the simple joy you had crunching into a sweet apple. How does that compare with the high-fructose corn syrup-drenched, refined wheat-” our products that leave you bloated and craving more? Whole foods … those eaten in their natural, unprocessed state, such as a baked potato versus French fries -give you a fuller eating experience, increase energy and help you look great! € Get naked with raw foods: Our earliest ancestors were hunter-gatherers who foraged for and consumed a wide variety of caloric intake, mostly consisting of raw veggies. Your body will thank you not long after you include more raw food into your diet, but you dont have to go the full Monty right away. Add fresh berries to your breakfast yogurt, include fresh nuts with your lunch, or replace coleslaw from the supermarket deli with a fresh recipe made from scratch. € Tame your cravings dragon: One of the swiftest paths to an unhealthy snacking binge is readymade, highly-processed sweets and baked goods. The craving-attack occurs when moms are busy and havent planned their meals for the day and it leads to a spike in blood sugar, a crash and then … another monster-sized craving. Have healthy options ready to go. Nutrient-dense whole grains such as quinoa, whole-grain toast with sesame butter, and oatmeal will turn that dragon of yours into a pussycat in no time. € Hungry for more lovin? : Think you could force yourself to eat an ounce of dark chocolate every day? High-quality dark chocolate … the kind that doesnt have all the “ llers … actually has lots of bene“ ts, not the least of which is ƒ its chocolate! Dark chocolate contains natural chemicals that serve as mood boosters and elevate serotonin levels, which enhance our sense of well-being. Health bene“ ts range from keeping blood vessels elastic to increasing antioxidant levels. The wrong way to look at the whole-food diet is as an obligation,Ž Aldrich says. You are doing your body and your taste buds a favor by excluding unnecessary sugar, salt and processed fats from your diet in favor of a variety of spices, fuller textures and a sexier “ gure.Ž About Beth Aldrich Beth Aldrich is the founder of RealMomsLoveToEat.com and a certi“ ed health coach through Columbia University and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Page 12B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy LES HARRISONWakulla Extension DirectorThe pools, puddles and temporary ponds left behind by Tropical Storm Debby are receding daily, only to be momentarily refreshed by afternoon scattered showers. The ” eeting surface water is already home to little creatures, and not just mosquitoes. Fairy shrimp have made an appearance in Wakulla County. There are three known varieties in Florida, but the ones in Wakulla County are Spiny Tailed Fairy Shrimp. These freshwater invertebrates are classi“ ed as crustaceans and have a long and ancient lineage. The fossil records indicate the earliest Fairy Shrimp lived in the Cambrian Epoch, or about 500 million years ago. All animal life during this period was aquatic and included the better known trilobites. As earths geology changed, they may have been forced to adapt to life in temporary pools and hyper-saline lakes. They were easy prey and a ready source of food for early bony “ shes in the oceans and freshwater lakes. Today there are 300 species spread across eight Anostraca familiesŽ worldwide and come in a rainbows variety of colors. They can be found in desert pools, ice-covered mountain lakes and in the Antarctic. They all, including the ones in Wakulla County, swim upside-down while feeding on “ ltering organic particles from the water or scraping algae from surfaces. Their length will easily “ t inside a quarter. These short-lived creatures appear when the environmental conditions are just right for their quick hatching and reproductive process. Some varieties are reported to lay eggs the “ rst day after they hatch. When the temporary ponds, pools and puddles evaporate, the Fairy Shrimp eggs will lay dormant in the soil for years, decades, possibly even a century, before the next hatch. There they will wait until the next time environmental conditions are correct for their reappearance, next year or next century. Contact your UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Office at 850-926-3931 or http://wakulla.ifas.u” .edu/ to learn more about the areas natural resources.Spiny Tailed Fairy Shrimp found in Wakulla’s puddles after Tropical Storm DebbySpiny Tailed Fairy Shrimp have made a rare appearance in Wakulla County ” ooding Tropical Storm Debby. Environmental conditions had to be perfect for this crustacean to hatch.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netResidents within Wakulla Gardens got a chance to voice their opinions and get questions answered about the proposed voluntary assessment for road improvements at a Wakulla County Commission workshop on July 12. The county has sent out a ballot survey to all residents in Wakulla Gardens asking if they would be willing to pay for road paving. Each resident would be charged between $180 and $235 per year for 10 to 15 years. The county has been looking for a solution to Wakulla Gardens infrastructure problem for years, which includes unpaved and poor roadways, stormwater drainage problems and lack of access to sewer and water. The cost to fund these improvements is astronomical, $30 to $40 million, and the commission has been trying to nd ways to pay for these improvements. The commission has indicated that it does not see these improvements happening any time within the near future because of the lack of funding. It could be years, it could be decades, Commissioner Alan Brock said. The last several months, the commission has received numerous complaints about the condition of the roadways and the dust issues. A lime rock aggregate was applied to the roads to help stabilize them and also help with problems with ooding in the area. During disasters and heavy rainfall, roads in this area become impassable. However, dry weather, causes the roads to be dry and dusty. So the commission decided to give residents the option of assessing themselves to pay for road paving, which would speed up the effort.Continued on Page 3A Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 27th Issue Thursday, July 19, 2012 Two Sections Two Sections75 Cents 75 Cents kll h h h h k l l h Published Weekly, Read Daily Published Weekly, Read DailynewsThe WakullaThe Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 5A Community .....................................................................Page 6A School .............................................................................Page 7A Outdoors ........................................................................Page 8A Water Ways .....................................................................Page 9A Sheriffs Report................................................................Page 10A News Extra! .....................................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Arts & Entertainment .......................................................Page 3B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 9B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 9BINDEX OBITUARIES William Fred Bailey Ruth McCallister Davis-High Royce Van Jackson, M.D. Danny Bruce Singletary Proper mold remediation requires mold removal by a licensed certified professional.

Wakulla 2020, an idea based on Blueprint 2000 in Tallahassee and that would have included a half-cent sales tax increase to pay for transportation improvements, did not receive the support needed from the Wakulla County Commission at the July 16 meeting to place a referendum on the ballot in November. Commissioner Randy Merritt, who has expressed his concern with the timing of this referendum, made the motion to not approve scheduling a public hearing to add the referendum on the ballot. The commission voted four to one, with Commissioner Alan Brock opposing, on the motion. Continued on Page 3A At rst ush, Ouzts Toos toilet garden is a little di erentGiven the choice by county commissioners of whether they want to pay to pave their subdivision roads or notBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.net Upon a rst visit to Ouzts Too Oyster Bar and Grill at the St. Marks River Bridge, one might not expect to nd a garden out back. But, as visitors and patrons to the restaurant soon nd out, there is one and it has a uniqueness all its own. The garden at Ouzts Too is lined with toilets serving as planters. The porcelain commodes come in several different colors, white, burgundy and pastels, and are full of a variety of plants. Some have plants in the bowl, others have them in the tank and some have both. When Dorothy Ouzts, owner of the restaurant and proud caretaker of the garden, bought the restaurant in 2005, there were four white toilets already in the back yard that held plants. But Ouzts says they were in bad shape and in serious need of attention. She decided to keep the toilets and create a garden. Ive never seen a toilet garden before, Ouzts says. In her years of traveling, a garden made of toilets was something Ouzts says she never came across. Year after year, Ouzts added to the garden and now has about 10 toilets in a variety of colors and one that serves as a fountain. The fountain isnt running currently because of the rain dumped on Wakulla County by Tropical Storm Debby. Ouzts says she has to clean it out and get it operating again. For now, it is serving as a water fountain for the pink amingo that also calls the garden home. Toilets have been donated to the garden by patrons and many have been purchased at Habitat for Humanitys Restore in Crawfordville. Ouzts says if the store gets a colored toilet in, they call her to let her know. They save them for me, Ouzts says. She is at her limit on toilets, but says if the toilet was a color she didnt have, that she would add it to the garden. A lot of travelers come through Ouzts Too and all are invited to see the garden before they leave. They are always amazed, Ouzts says. There is a travel agent from New Zealand who always brings her groups to Ouzts Too and the toilet garden never disappoints. People like coming back here, Ouzts says. When Ouzts gets a toilet for the garden, it stays as is. If there is a lid, she keeps it on. If there is a seat, that stays too. Some of the toilets still have all their working parts, including the apper, chain and float located in the tank. Continued on Page 3A Telling commissioners how they feel:Connie Savage was skeptical.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThis November, voters in Wakulla County will decide who will be the next superintendent of schools. At a political forum held on July 10 by the Wakulla County Christian Coalition and Concerned Citizens of Wakulla County, voters got a chance to meet the candidates and hear why they deserve the title. The candidates are Kimball Kim Thomas and Robert Bobby Pearce. Superintendent David Miller chose not to seek re-election after serving in that capacity for 17 years. Both candidates grew up in Wakulla County and expressed their love for the area. They have also spent most of their careers in education. Pearce told the audience that he has dedicated 23 years to the Wakulla County school system, helping to build one of the most successful school districts in the state. He has served as a PE teacher, educator, principal, principal on special assignment for the district and in June was appointed to assistant superintendent, all in Wakulla County. Thomas told the audience he wished he could tell them that all his years in education were spent solely in Wakulla County. But when he worked his way up to assistant principal, he said he hit an administrative ceiling in Wakulla County and had to look elsewhere for opportunities. However, he said having those different experiences serves as an asset as well. Thomas has been a teacher and assistant principal at Wakulla Middle School, principal at Rickards High School, Department of Education Department of School Improvement employee, adjunct professor at Gainesville State College and currently serves as principal of East Gadsden High School. One topic that came up numerous times during the forum was the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test and other types of student testing. The candidates were asked whether they felt too much time was spent on preparing for these tests. Thomas said there needs to be a balance. Students needs to be prepared for the rst day of school next year, not just the FCAT. Its one data set that tells us how we are doing, Thomas said. School districts must look at the entire picture to measure how their schools and students are doing, The graduation rate, graduation at-risk rate, college placement results and other student assessment data needs to be looked at, he said. Pearce said it concerned him that schools were spending too much time preparing for the FCAT. This ends up creating a generation of students who arent happy with school, dont like school and pass that on to their children, he said. It affects students in different ways, he said. And he felt FCAT now seems to be more of how the teachers and administrators are judged. He said several different factors and assessments need to be looked at to measure the performance of students and the school district, including the graduation rate, how many students are taking advanced placement, honors classes and career and vocational opportunities will help to measure the success of students. The question of how to close the student achievement gap was also asked of the candidates. Pearce said teachers and administrators need to continue to push students and make sure every student has an equal opportunity. He added that his goal was to help ninth graders develop a plan for where they want to go in the future. To produce citizens that can produce for themselves, Pearce said. Thomas said he would rst look at the data and then make sure the best and brightest teachers are being hired. He said he would also look different course offerings and counseling for students. Candidates were also asked whether they would keep physical education, arts and music in the schools. Both said they would make sure they stay and believed they were important. As a PE teacher, that would be a cardinal sin, Pearce said of eliminating PE. He added that all these things are needed to make a well-rounded student. He said he hoped to add more to those programs, which have been cut in the past because of the budget. Thomas said schools must have these programs available to students. Students are placed in rows and columns, but then are asked to think outside the box, he said. What an anomaly, he said. Not all students are logical, mathematical thinkers, he said. He added that he would cut administrative costs to ensure the schools have these programs. There were also several questions raised dealing with racial diversity among school district employees. The candidates were asked how many African American administrators there should be and if they felt there was a failure to promote minorities to administrative positions. Thomas said diversity is necessary, in every part of life, and he would look at the numbers of minority administrators and the proportion. But, he added that he wants to make sure the best quali ed people are hired. Pearce agreed that diversity was important. There is a need for diversity, but he would also make sure that the employee meets the requirements set by the school district and is a role model to the students. Creating a diverse population of teachers and administrators is important, as well as hiring the most quali ed people. An audience member asked the candidates how they would increase parent involvement at the schools, especially Wakulla High School. Pearce said, Weve got to Disney up. Which meant that everyone needs to be treated as a king and leave happy. He added that communicating by email is great, but teachers and parents need to get face to face more. Thomas said an emphasis needs to be placed on customer friendly service and network with the parents more and engage them. One idea might be to offer incentives for parents who volunteer and are very involved. The last question asked was who their favorite teacher was in school. Thomas said it was Ruth Williams. She had an expectation of us, he said. She knew there were challenges, but never made her students feel like they couldnt learn, he said. Pearce said he had many, but one who stood out was Kay Floyd who taught for 43 years. She leaves him strategic voicemails each day and tells him she loves him.

JULY 19, 2012 Continued from Page 1A If approved by the board, it would have gone to the voters for approval. I think the projects are a great idea, Merritt said. I just think the timing is bad. The timing Merritt was referring to was the closeness of this referendum to the extension of the countys one-cent sales tax in 2014. He felt the referendum for the Wakulla 2020 transportation surtax might jeopardize the renewal of the one-cent sales tax. The one-cent sales tax funds transportation and roads, the library, parks and recreation, public facilities and public safety. Its very close to the ballot language of the one-cent sales tax, Merritt said. He added that he knows the voter can make the distinction between the two, but is afraid if one passes, the voter may not want to approval another tax just a short time later. Its not worth the risk, Merritt said. Commissioner Mike Stewart agreed and said if the one-cent sales tax is lost, I dont know how well fund our road and bridge department. Stewart also said instead of levying the half-cent sales tax, the county could re-apportion the one-cent sales tax and give more to the projects pinpointed by the Wakulla 2020 Advisory Committee. Now we can look at that much harder, Stewart said. Previously, Wakulla 2020 was going to focus solely on Highway 319. The fourlaning of this road has been delayed numerous times by the Department of Transportation and is now on a 20-year delay. So this citizen initiative was started to try and nd a way to address this issue and pay for improvements. The Wakulla 2020 Advisory Committee was asked to broadened its scope to include all areas in the county by the county commission. However, John Shuff, who has led this initiative, said the rst project would be improving six intersections along Highway 319. The intersections would start at Bloxham Cuttoff and go to U.S. Highway 98. Other projects included couple turn lanes in Medart and a few in Panacea for better traffic flow, as well as paving Tower Road near Panacea for hurricane safety. There were two road resurfacing projects suggested in St. Marks, paving Old Woodville Highway in Wakulla Station and widening the shoulder on Shell Point Road and Smith Creek Road. Previously there were sidewalk and bike trails projects listed, but those have since been removed because the money from the half-cent sales tax would not be allowed to be used for these projects. Stewart was also concerned about oversight of the Wakulla 2020 committee, who will be in charge of the funds. According to Shuff, it is estimated that the half-cent sales tax would bring in about $900,000 a year and after 15-years and a bonding stream and service estimate, they would have around $12 million to spend. There needs to be some accountability, Stewart said. Thats a lot of money. Commissioner Lynn Artz, who previously voted for adding the referendum to the ballot, said she was concerned about the proposed ballot language because it seemed to promise voters more than will be delivered and didnt seem to be very clear. The list of projects totals more than $37 million, but the tax is only anticipated to bring in $12 million, with the hope of getting grants. Only about a third would actually get funded, Artz said. Shuff said DOT is very anxious to match funds for transportation projects and has expressed its support for the plan. Artz said, I dont want to see us setting sky high expectations. Shuff said the list was created so that if the economy does turn around other projects have been targeted and can be in place. It was not meant as a means of deception, he said. He added that there needed to be an education program to inform the public. Brock said he didnt feel there was enough time to educate and get it done before the deadline to place it on the ballot. But still felt like it was a good idea and voted against the motion as a show of support. Commissioner Jerry Moore who voted in favor of adding it to the ballot changed his vote and said he would stick by his mantra of no new taxes. Its not my understanding or my feeling that these items are needed today, Moore said. Merritt said he also felt recent meetings with DOT have been positive and the Capital Regional Transportation Agency was responsive to moving widening Highway 319 further up on the list of road projects. The commissioners all agreed the Wakulla 2020 initiative was a good one and thanked the advisory committee for its hard work.Wakulla 2020 gets voted down by commissioners Continued from Page 1AThe ballots must be postmarked by July 31. If at least 50 percent plus one vote in favor of the assessment, it is anticipated that the commission would move it forward. Before being assessed, the county commission would have to vote for it as well. Im not going to vote a tax on anybody if they dont want it, said Commissioner Randy Merritt. Rest assured, were not going to shove a tax down your throat. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the commission wants to support what the residents want. Some residents were in favor of paying to have their roads paved, while others felt it was unfair that they should have to pay when other residents within the county do not. Its not right to make us pay, said resident Don Curley. He pointed out other roads in the county that were paved and not paid for by residents in the area. Commissioner Mike Stewart said a list of roads is submitted to the Department of Transportation who evaluates the roads and then decides which roads are paved and when. Other roads have been resurfaced using money from the Small County Road Assistance Program. These funds can only be used to resurface existing paved roads. Resident Sherrie Bowen asked why roads were paved around Lake Ellen at no expense to residents. That road was on the countys paving list from many years ago, said Commissioner Randy Merritt. The intention was to pave collector roads, he said. Commissioner Alan Brock said the paving that was done around Lake Ellen was done in the same way that the county paved Lower Bridge Road, which is now Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Road, he said. Resident Sandy Rogers said she would like to see the roads paved, especially the connector roads, but is barely making it by as it is. Were all strapped, she said. The project would cost $5.2 million and would pay for the paving of 21.17 miles of roads in Wakulla Gardens and minimal stormwater improvements. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said the roads would be 20-feet wide and some would have traf c calming devices. This is a plain jane road, Fleming said. The roads within Wakulla Gardens would be paved within three different phases, starting with the highly traveled roads. This would take about two years, said County Administrator David Edwards. The county would use existing staff to prepare the roads for paving and would bid out the asphalt portion. Paving could start in the spring of 2013, if it is approved by residents, Edwards said. Included in the stormwater improvements are cross drains, side drains, culverts and more storage volume, said the countys engineering consultant Alan Wise with Preble-Rish. The idea is to plan for future stormwater improvements, he said. Many residents were concerned about the ooding in Wakulla Gardens and wanted to know if this would decrease ooding. Resident Megan Davis said she had four feet of water in her yard and up to six inches in her house from the downpour from Tropical Storm Debby. Wise said it would not make ooding worse, but couldnt say for sure if it was decrease ooding. Culverts would be placed where it is practical and will not be put in at every lot, Fleming said. If the ballot receives a positive response, the county will also look at offering a program to consolidate contiguous lots so that property owners would not be charged multiple assessments. The property owner would have until Dec. 3 to consolidate the lots. This would also reduce density within Wakulla Gardens. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said the quickest the county could put the assessment in place would be January. If the voluntary assessment fails, Stewart said the county will do its best to look at paving those highly traveled roads in phase 1. The county is also looking at long term options for funding infrastructure improvements. This would include the creation of a Community Redevelopment Area for an area that includes Wakulla Gardens. The CRA funds projects through tax increment nancing. After the CRA is established, the value of real property in the area is determined on a xed date; as the value increases because of improvements, the tax revenue increases. The difference is set aside for the CRA. Another idea was to allocate a certain percentage of the roads portion of the one-cent sales tax to Wakulla Gardens improvements. This percentage would be based on the number of roads in Wakulla Gardens versus the total number of county-owned roads. It would equate to 2.7 percent. Another option is the Florida Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program which provides funding for housing and community development.Its up to Wakulla Gardens residentsContinued from Page 1A The way I get them is the way I leave them, Ouzts says. She places the toilet on top of a concrete block to keep it sturdy then puts mulch around it. She then lls the bowl with potting soil and says she only uses good soil. Then she adds the plant. If the lid on top of the tank is missing, she adds another plant. Some of the plants were given to her by customers and friends. People like to participate, Ouzts says. It makes them feel a part of it. She likes to include color in her garden and keep something in the garden that is always in bloom. I love beautiful plants, Ouzts says. A lot of the plants also attract hummingbirds and Outz has added a couple feeders, as well as other materials she has acquired. Weve got a nice toilet garden, Ouzts says.

Editor, The News:I was in motorcyle wreck on July 6 on Spring Creek Highway when I hit a deer. Being a longtime family member of Wakulla County and recently returning home, I would like to extend my utmost appreciation and thanks to a man who I not only have the greatest admiration and respect for, but great love. Thank you, sir, for holding my kneecap in place on the side of the road and making sure that my motorocyle made it home safely and that I was mentally grounded as well, I would like to personally thank you for the years of friendship, kindness, hospitality generosity and above all your love, Mr. Boonie Mitchell. I would also like to thank the sheriffs of- ce, the of cer who held my head still, I dont know who he was, and the EMTs for their promptness and kindness. Marsha Billhimer Spring Creek Editor, The News: Well, it has been a couple of weeks now, since Debby made our community a land of a thousand lakes. Thank you so much to many in our community who have brought love, support, and friendship to many. There are many who have needs, no insurance, and have lost. I am reminded every day that the best things in life are not things. In my particular story I wished to pass along that I have met and visited with the many Red Cross, FEMA and other representatives in our area. I was lucky enough to have had insurance, and ood insurance that is going to help. But the folks here from FEMA etc have been wonderful, and helpful. If you or a family member or friend have not been to the Extension of ce location, please encourage them they need to go. They may qualify for any number of assistances from a number of agencies. As the County has been approved for both individual and public assistance, many life and infrastructure essentials are quali ed for funds. You should/must take a little time to get your names in the system to qualify. The folks of our community are full of pride and made of strong ber. It can be hard to ask for help, but please lets help those who have lost much. The Wakulla County Coalition is accepting donations to help people. There are areas the federal government, state, and county governments may be able to assist with. To nd out more you can call the WCCY at 926-3526. I and my wife have been blessed. We have seen help and support from many I will not name here. Some have meant more than I can say and continue to prop us up dailythe best things in life truly, are not things. Sincerely with so much to be thankful for, Bruce Ashley President Wakulla County Coalition for Youth Editor, The News: An open letter to Wakulla County Commissioners: It has been brought to my attention that Wakulla County has a great opportunity to access Federal funds for the improvement of Wakulla County Airport in Panacea, Florida. I understand there are many who are both for and against this project. Just to let you know a little bit about myself, 1 have been a resident of Wakulla County for almost 16 years. I am a professional pilot for the State of Florida. I have been employed with the State for 27-plus years and have been flying for them for more than 21 of those years, with approximately 10,000 hours of logged ight-time. I say this not to boast but to let you know of my experience in aviation. The Wakulla County Airport, geographically, is a very vital airport not only for local pilots but also enroute aviators transiting this area. It is a vital airport in that many people use the Coastline as a reference when transiting the Gulf region. The airport has been used as an alternate landing airport for many pilots who may not have been able to continue their trip due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. I have personally used the Wakulla County Airport numerous times as an alternate landing strip when Tallahassee Regional and Quincy Airports were experiencing inclement weather. With the Carrabelle and Perry Airports being the next two closest facilities on the coast, you can see why our airport could be crucial to a pilot who may need to land due to weather or mechanical issues. To a pilot ying a single-engine airplane this could be an issue of life or death. These are just a few examples of the importance of keeping our airport on the FAA Charts and available to aircraft. Now what can the airport do for our county? An airport is important to the economy of a thriving community. This airport has the potential to bring in revenue in the form of tourism dollars if that is the vision that you have for our county. The capital possibilities are numerous with the potential sale of fuel and ramp/tie-down fees, not to mention the monies that could be brought in for other local businesses that deal in food and lodging. With the airports short runway of 2,590 feet the impact that this facility has on the surrounding area is very minimal. The length of this runway limits the size and type of aircraft that are able to land here. I can almost say with certainty that you will not see jets or large cabin-class aircraft here. The types of aircraft that you will see at this airport are mostly single-engine, general-aviation aircraft. These types of aircraft have a very low impact in the area of noise. I have heard airboats on Ochlockonee Bay that are much louder than any of the planes I have heard at the Wakulla County Airport. With a noise abatement procedure and hours of operation published in the Airport Facilities Directory for departing and arriving aircraft, there is no reason why the airport could not be a good neighbor to the residents in the surrounding area. Let me close by saying, accepting the funds that are being offered to our county for the improvements of this facility would be bene cial not only for our residents, but also for the aviation community that may someday land here for pleasure or by necessity. Thank you in advance for your consideration in this issue, Thomas James Mallow CrawfordvilleREADERS WRITE: e best things in life are not things Story was much appreciated Votes in contest were awesome e airport is important to the county ank you to volunteers after Debby ank you, Boonie Mitchell, for your help School Board deserves closer attentionEditor, The News: On behalf of VolunteerWAKULLA, I would like to thank all the volunteers and relief organizations who came out to help with the cleanup from Tropical Storm Debby. The Red Cross, Salvation Army and Goodwill Industries, are continuing to play a very large part in the relief efforts. They are available to assist residents with food, water and housing, as well as help with making contact for cleanup. 2-1-1 of the Big Bend has played a large role in informing residents as to the types of help that is available. Thank you. A very special thanks to Samaritans Purse, an international relief organization, that came with their teams to help in the cleanup efforts. Members came from Georgia, Florida, Missouri and South Carolina to help. They brought tools and supplies and worked tirelessly alongside volunteers from Wakulla and Leon Counties. It was a pleasure working with them. In addition, Lake Ellen Baptist Church gave the use of their beautiful facility to house Samaritans Purse and to host a volunteer center. Thank you to Pastor Keith Wallace and the church congregation for their support. Several local business donated food and other items to the volunteer center; Ace Hardware, Advanced Auto Parts, Gulf Coast Lumber, Little Caesars, Panhandle Pizza, Pizza Hut, Stone Creek Pizza, Wal-Mart and the Wakulla County Health Department. Your generous donations were a blessing. I am especially grateful for the help from Cecile DeGrove and Jimmie Doyle, who helped at the volunteer center and Gail Campbell, from WCCY, for her help in gathering donations. There were many more people and organizations that worked behind the scenes to help our residents through this dif cult time. I want to take this opportunity to thank them all; their efforts were invaluable during this disaster. Pam Mueller President VolunteerWAKULLA Editor, The News: I think our country is in sad shape financially and morally and believe in speaking out if something about our government bothers me, so here goes. The ve members of our School Board have been in of ce for a total of 78 years. I thought this was a service position, not a career. In the past 35 years, we have never had an African American on the board and only two females. They meet once a month for about an hour. The 2012 salary is $25,416. Divide that by 12 months and you get $2,118 an hour! Ray Gray, with 14 years on the board, was ned $7,500 by the Governor because he violated the publics trust by not being truthful on his Form 6 reports. Has he paid the ne? He was red from his position as director of parks and recreation for the county. As of July 10, he owed $28,375.24 in unpaid property taxes. How can he sit on our school board making decisions on how to spend our tax dollars when he doesnt pay his? Is this setting a good example for our children? Should we do a recall? Mike Scott, up for reelection in August with 16 years on the board, had court judgments against him including Fraud and Civil Theft and a Judgment of Garnishment. When I talked to him, he said all of that was finished. According to the Form 6 directions, judgments are to be reported as liabilities. Has he reported correctly for the past ve years? Has he led any correction reports? Is this setting a good example for our students? Becky Cook, with 18 years of service and the only female on the board, has volunteered thousands of hours in our schools. The children love her music classes and I know she enjoys the interaction with the children. Thank you, Becky. Greg Thomas, a board member for 12 years, manages his own affairs and pays his taxes. Thank you, Greg. Jerry Evans, a member for 18 years, has moved to south Florida. Jerry and I had a good visit on the phone. He does not intend to resign from the school board. He feels that with the technology of today he can stay connected with all school issues and nish out the two years of his term by coming back to town for the monthly meeting. I dont believe we can serve our students long distance and think the $2,118 for an hour meeting was an in uence. He said if it reaches the point where he feels he is not doing justice to our students, he will address the situation. He said he met with David Miller and Bobby Pearce and they were in agreement with his decision. According to the Division of Elections he can do this because he is stating his Wakulla residency as his permanent address. So Jerry, take care and be safe on the road, but dont miss any meetings. Well be waiting for you to roll back into town. If the $2,118 for an hour meeting upsets you, contact senators and representatives and get the 2011 Senate Bill 2172 back on the agenda. It would pay school board members a stipend, as do the majority of the other states, instead of a salary, retirement and bene ts. It could save the taxpayers millions. Our great schools are a result of our dedicated teachers, students, involved parents, staff and those working to feed, transport, clean up and get the paychecks out. Thank you. Remember to vote for a new school board member in the August Primary. Early voting is Aug. 4 to Aug.11, at the Supervisor of Elections Of ce. The regular Primary will be Aug. 14. Your choices are Michael Scott, running for re-election, and Melisa Taylor. Donna Sanford Crawfordville Editor, The News: We wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Jennifer Jensen for the outstanding story in the Thursday, July 12 edition of The Wakulla News regarding our FEMA Community Relations operation (Community Relations Team is out in the county, front page). We were especially touched by your account of efforts on behalf of Mrs. Elaine Herndon. Your narrative was expressed with great sensitivity and compassion and is, we think, right on the mark in capturing the very spirit of our mission in the eld. Our FEMA colleagues spoke of how well and how accurately your story detailed the work we do. They noted how beautifully it gave a face and an immediacy to the massive relief effort by FEMA and by the many other organizations, groups and untold numbers of individual volunteers in this area. We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge with commendations your story on the vital work of the Disaster Recovery Center in Crawfordville, and the touching account of Mr. Bill Rogers encounter with the danger of ood waters (He woke up just in time, front page). You brought it all home to your readers . so again, thanks so much for your treatment of these important matters and events. Best wishes, Brenda and Steve Brenda Cheek Steve HuffstutlerFEMA Community RelationsEditor, The News: I just want to take the time to say thank you to everyone who voted for me for the national Samsung Superhero Video Competition. I didnt win the contest, but I am still a winner, regardless of the outcome. I just feel accomplished that I placed in the top 10. I was the only nalist from the state of Florida, and with your help, I received the second largest number of votes. So, to my family and friends, I want to say thank you for supporting me through the whole contest. It was an awesome learning experience, and it gave me an idea of what to expect the next time I apply for a video scholarship. I will still continue to purse my dream as a lm producer, no matter what obstacles I face, and I will always keep God rst in everything I do. Sincerely, Demetrius Lindsey Wakulla High School Senior

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 SNYDER It is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs y. Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs y. My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs y. Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can y. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off when it comes to ying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors ying around, I have more reasons not to like ying. I think the cost of ying has discouraged me from enjoying the ight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extradite myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of ying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I y just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like ying has to do with the seats.

We hold our luncheon to show our appreciation and in a small way, say thank you for all that they do for our patients and our team members, said Pam Allbritton, community resources coordinator for Big Bend Hospice. Big Bend Hospice volunteers provide companionship to patients and respite for their caregivers. Often patients will share more about their pain, their family dynamics and life stories with a volunteer rather than with a BBH team member or their family. Many volunteers feel they get more from the patients than they could ever give, Allbritton said. Big Bend Hospice is Wakulla Countys original hometown hospice serving the County residents since 1983. Big Bend Hospice is a private nonpro t organization that provides compassionate care to individuals with limited life expectancy and their families offering care teams consisting of an experienced RN, a family counselor, a home health aide, board certi ed music therapist, a chaplain and trained volunteers to every patient. For more information, please call 926-9308. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSVolunteers of Big Bend Hospice attend appreciation luncheon at Welcome Center. Brock receives presidential advocacy award Special to The NewsAs the mercury rises, physicians at the local Doctors Express urgent care center are seeing a hike in heat related injuries and illnesses. The heat has patients coming in with sunburn, heat cramps and heat exhaustion. Heat is the No. 1 weather-related killer in the United States, resulting in hundreds of deaths each year. On average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than oods, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined. The good newsheat related illnesses and injuries are totally preventable. Age Affects Heat Vulnerability Studies indicate that, other things being equal, the severity of heat disorders tends to increase with age. Conditions that cause heat cramps in a 17-year-old may result in heat exhaustion in someone 40 years old and heat stroke in a person over 60. Sweat It! The problem: We often dont see the heat as a health threat. We sweat and thats our bodies way of keeping cool. But, when faced with extreme heat, sweating may not be enough. When the body cant cool itself properly, the body temperature rises rapidly which leads to heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and can damage the brain or other organs. Doctors Express docs offer some tips on how to stay happy, healthy, hydrated and in the summer heat. How To Stay Healthy in Heat: Drink plenty of water Drink extra water if you are consuming dehydrating caffeinated or alcoholic beverages Avoid prime heat hours by going outside only early or late in the day Seek air conditioning wherever possible Dress for the heat by wearing lightweight and light-colored clothing Never leave a person or pet in a parked car even if a window is open a crack, it can heat up in seconds If you start feeling overheated, get out of the heat and sun immediately The doctors prescription for staying cool ice cream alternating with gelato.Special to The NewsThe Florida Association of Counties presented Wakulla County Commissioner Alan Brock with the Presidential Advocacy Award during the 2012 FAC Annual Conference and Exposition in Orange County. The Presidential Advocacy Award is presented to those commissioners who show a commitment to protecting local control and advocating on behalf of home rule. It is important to me that the nes paid in response to Deepwater Horizon are used in the areas that have been directly impacted by the oil spill, and we are all working together to make sure that Congress knows that is what we need, and to see to it that they deliver, Brock said. Brock is committed to ensuring passage of the federal RESTORE Act so that Floridas Panhandle economy and environment will be fully restored following the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill. It is public servants like Commissioner Brock that recognize full recovery from the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill could take years, said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley, His effort to help pass the RESTORE Act will ensure that monies BP is ned go to those communities directly impacted and not the general treasury. The Presidential Advocacy Award is given annually to those commissioners from around the state that take the time to advocate state and federal legislators in Tallahassee or at home to protect the ideal that government closest to the people governs best. FAC 2012 Presidential Advocacy Award winners were: Ilene Lieberman, Broward County; Lois Wexler, Broward County; Robert Skidmore, Charlotte County; Doug Conkey, Clay County; Grover Robinson, Escambia County; Smokey Parrish, Franklin County; Bill Williams, Gulf County; Warren Yeager, Gulf County; Cecilia Jones, Walton County; Dave Parisot, Okaloosa County; Lane Lynchard, Santa Rosa County; Alan Brock, Wakulla County; Les Miller, Hillsborough County; Bryan Desloge, Leon County; Ed Ciampi, Martin County; Patrick Hayes, Martin County; Frank Attkisson, Osceola County; Susan Latvala, Pinellas County; Ken Welch, Pinellas County; Ken Eubanks, Putnam County; Brad Purcell, Putnam County; Stephen Fulford, Jefferson County; John Nelson, Jefferson County; Hines Boyd, Jefferson County; Betsey Barfield, Jefferson County; Danny Monroe, Jefferson County; and, Ray Judah, Lee County.

AUTO REFINANCE REDUCE YOUR INTEREST RATE BY UP TO 2%!!! New and Used auto rates as low as 2.5% for qualied applicants.Offer subject to credit approval, membership eligibility and oor rate of 2.5% By BETH ODONNELLAssistant SuperintendentFlorida Department of Education released elementary and middle school grades for the 2011-2012 year and Wakulla County School District rated top scores. Even with new, more rigorous standards and higher cut scores, our students and teachers did an amazing job of meeting the challenges, said Superintendent David Miller. Riversink Elementary, Crawfordville Elementary, Shadeville Elementary and Wakulla Middle School each earned an A rating. Medart Elementary missed an A by 2 points on an 800 point scale and Riversprings Middle missed by 9 points on a 900 point scale. Both schools earned a high B. COAST Charter School earned a C. Throughout Florida, 15 percent of schools grades K-8 dropped from an A they earned last year, most likely due to the tougher standards and higher cut scores. High school grades are not released until much later in the school year due to 50 percent of their grade being based on data that comes in later such as Advanced Placement scores and Graduation Rate. Wakulla High School is on track to do as well or better than last year when they earned enough points for an A but were lowered to a B due to some at-risk students taking ve years to graduate instead of four. We know that the movement towards tough national standards will continue to increase, but we are ready in terms of the teacher professional development that takes place continuously in Wakulla. Our mission is always to prepare our students to be competitive with other students across the country and throughout the world, noted Superintendent Miller.Schools earn top gradesVolleyball tryouts coming up on Aug. 6 and 7 for WHSWMS football drills start July 19 Wakulla students participate in STEM projectSpecial to The NewsWhen the last school bell rang this summer, thousands of Florida high school students headed for fun in the sun, summer jobs, or maybe just lazy days relaxing after a hard year of academics. But for a group of highly motivated ninth and 10th graders in Floridas small, rural school districts, the end of the school year signaled the beginning of summer learning challenges staged by the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars project. During the rst project year, 612 gifted and academically talented students were selected from 27 school districts in three regions of the state, the Northwest, Northeast and South Central, to take part in collaborative, hands-on experiences in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), explore STEM career paths never imagined in many of their limited world experiences, and to develop leadership skills. FloridaLearns STEM Scholars is a three-year long project, funded through Floridas Race to the Top initiative from the Florida Department of Education. The FloridaLearns STEM Scholars initiative was launched in July 2011 with a vision to help Florida address its urgent and important STEM talent development challenge by focusing on some of Floridas most underserved students, its gifted and talented in the rural regions of the state. The Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC) located in Chipley, the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC) in Lake Placid and the North Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC) in Palatka are working in partnership to help transform teaching, learning and leadership in the areas of STEM. The $4.5 million dollar project addresses a serious gap in STEM education for gifted and talented students in the states small, rural school districts served by their three rural-based regional educational service organizations and is identi- ed as Floridas Rural STEM Education Initiative. Over June and July, a series of regional Summer Challenge programs are providing opportunities for students to become immersed in STEMMING. The series of Summer Challenges were launched the week of June 11 through 14. Students from Gadsden, Liberty and Wakulla counties came together at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, to take part in the D3(Dream, Design, and Do) NanoChallenge where students designed instruments to test speci c materials in order to determine the characteristics of the materials. Students were then challenged to use the tools they developed to nd materials most suited for speci c tasks. As a team, they explored a novel ethical issue in nanotechnology and designed and constructed a device to simulate the manner in which the electron force microscope works. Jose Sanchez, assistant director of the Center for Integrating Research and Learning at the NHMFL, treated students to a tour of the facility. Participants also had the opportunity to interact with scientists Dr. Maitri Warusawithana, who showed the equipment used in molecular beam epitaxy and Bob Goddard, and Jonathan Ludwig, who demonstrated how scanning electron and atomic force microscopes work, respectively. In a series of career presentations, Darrel Tremaine, a geochemist and Angela Sutton, a chemical engineer and Safety Director at the NHMFL described their workplace and academic preparation for their careers and Dr. Matt Eby, a nanobioscientist, shared cutting edge developments in his occupational area nanobiology. STEM Mentor teachers Angela Sapp (Gadsden County), David Shuler (Liberty County) and Suzanne Fielder (Wakulla County) accompanied the students and assisted Dr. Mabry Gaboardi and Jesse Smithyman throughout the weeks activities. Preparing these students for the next phase of the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars project in the upcoming 2012-13 school year, the second year of the three-year funding initiative is an important goal of the Summer Challenges. By stimulating excitement, encouraging deeper understanding of the STEM disciplines, and motivating greater inquiry and learning, STEM stakeholders from business and industry, economic development, workforce agencies and educational leaders are looking forward with excitement to Floridas ability to help produce the STEM talent needed to sustain and advance Floridas critical economic future by tapping the states underserved small and rural gifted and talented students potential home grown. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSStudents from three counties, including Wakulla, participate in the FloridaLearns STEM scholars project.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsDespite the heavy rains from Debby and the stained water, the wind that seems to always blow on the weekend and the hot temperatures, the fishing is still pretty darn good for this time of year. There are also plenty of scallops around and folks are getting their limits fairly quickly. They moved the Big Bend Saltwater Classic to July 6-8 so that gag grouper could be one of the categories. As it turned out, Fathers Day Weekend back in June was absolutely horrible weather-wise so everything worked out for the best. The biggest sh of the tournament was a 58-pound cobia caught by Joseph Tatum. Michael Cragg weighed in a 41.65 king, Algy Wade came in with a 24.6-pound red snapper and Russell Miller weighed in a 32.5 pound gag grouper. All of these sh placed rst in the recreational division and were weighed-in at Port St. Joe Marina. In the masters division the team of Cari Lynn weighed in a whopping 50.9-pound grouper. The only record that was set this year was in the juniors division. Alex Kadel brought to the scales a monster king that weighed 49 pounds. Congratulations to these and all the other winners. Jeff May from Carrollton, Ga., was down last week and was able to make it out a few days when the wind didnt blow. They caught some nice grouper and snapper and their son Jason caught a 54-pound cobia. They were shing out near V Tower and said they saw several schools of big cobia. Their biggest snapper was about 14 pounds. I just got off the phone with Capt. Randy Peart who guides out of the Econ na in the spring and fall and at St. George during the summer. Randy said they had the best week of shing over there last week than they have seen all year. Big trout and lots of them. He said on Monday they caught ve Spanish between 4 and 5 pounds and he is seeing lot of triple tail around the buoys and crab markers. Capt. David Fife has been catching quite a few nice ounder and told me last night after catching bait he stopped at a hole in Oyster Bay and caught two nice reds in just a few minutes using live mud minnows. Capt. Jerry Alexander shed last Saturday and said they caught a lot of Spanish using sardines under a oat. He shed in 15 to 20 feet of water. There are some big reds out on Turkey Point Shoals and plenty of tarpon. The water is stained but you can see them moving over the white sand spots. One of my neighbors went out last Wednesday morning and said they caught their limit of trout to 22 inches in a matter of hours. They started at rst light and had a good incoming tide. She said they shed the Gulp under a Cajun Thunder and all of their sh came in 4 to 5 feet of water. If they got less than that they wouldnt catch anything but small ones. Yesterday Phil Sharp and I shed for about two hours on the last of the rise and had six keeper trout to 21 inches. All were caught on the New Penny Gulp under a oat. Last Monday I took a group from Tulsa, Okla., who had never shed saltwater and we had a pretty good day. It was awfully hot but the sh didnt seem to mind. We caught two limits of trout, two small cobia, four ounder, three Spanish and quite a few blue sh. They were sunburned but happy when they left. I shed again on Thursday with some folks from Georgia but we wont talk about that trip. That was one of those days that I wish I had taken up golf. Dont forget that red snapper season closed on the 17th. Be careful if youre heading out scalloping and dont forget that diver down flag. If you are out of your boat and just wading around in very shallow water you are suppose to have that flag displayed. Good luck and good shing!Despite the heat, the stained water and weekend wind shings good From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL FWC NewsIf you go saltwater shing in Florida, researchers with the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission want to learn about your experiences and opinions through the new online Florida Saltwater Fishing Panel. Anyone with a valid Florida saltwater shing license or Persons with Disabilities Resident Hunting and Fishing License, as well as exempt residents age 65 and older, can sign up to take part in the panel, which begins this summer. Registered panel members will be asked to complete one web-based survey per month for a one-year period. The surveys will each take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. While most of each survey will focus on the anglers last saltwater shing trip in Florida during the previous month, surveys may also include questions about current or proposed shing regulations, licenses, conservation of sh stocks and management effectiveness. FWC researchers will use survey data to estimate the economic impact and value of saltwater shing in Florida, to assess the importance of fish hatcheries, to estimate fishing effort and catch rates and to describe angler behavior. The FWC will take information gathered from panelists into consideration as part of management and policy-making decisions. Panel members will receive a coupon from West Marine for each monthly survey they complete. Participants will also have the opportunity to review summary results from the monthly surveys. More than 200,000 anglers who provided their email addresses when they purchased their licenses have already received emails asking them to register for the panel. Those licensed anglers who have not received an email can sign up at www. fwcsaltwater shingpanel. com, by clicking Register for the Panel. Interested anglers must register by Aug. 20 to receive the September survey. However, new members will be accepted throughout the duration of the panels operation. As the panel is fully web-based, a panel member must have Internet access and a current email address.FWC wants to hear about saltwater shingFWC NewsNew editions of manatee and sea turtle decals are available at local tax collectors of ces across the state.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 Page 9AOn Saturday, July 14, members of Flotilla 12 met in Tallahassee for the July business meeting and membership training. During the meeting, members discussed the progression of our communications trailer. The last few items have been ordered to increase the antenna strength needed to be back on line. With the help of the communications team from Station Panama City, we hope to be up and running very soon. It has been a long road to get our radio communications back up and running. Larry Kolk received his sustained service award at the conclusion of the meeting. This award is given for every 750 hours of service. Larry is a valuable asset to our team and we look forward to his next award! Membership training was held after the meeting on AUXData. This is the information system that monitors all of our volunteer activities from public education safety patrols and vessel inspections to writing this column for you every week. The training Duane Treadon wrote about a few weeks ago was relayed to the membership. While some do not nd data entry interesting, Duane has a great way to make it all understandable and engaging for everyone. By properly entering our work into the AUXData system, we are able to account for all the work we do. This better allows the Auxiliary and Coast Guard to advocate for our needs. Last week, you read about Navigation Rule #7, The risk of collision. After spending a week in Savannah for work, this rule became even more evident. Watching the large container ships do a ne dance with the tugs and hearing the long blasts of the horns as the ships rounded corners, at all hours of the day and night, really brought this to life. At one point, two container ships passed in the river, and while the shore view appeared as if there was not enough room, the ships and tugs made it look effortless!

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS What is it like to grow up as a diver? Many times Ive been referred to as a sh rather than a young woman. With both my parents being avid divers, I suppose that I grew up with saltwater in my veins. I remember snorkeling before I knew how to swim, and as those dreaded swimming lessons came, I refused to give up my ns. At the age of 10 my rst diving lesson came from my father, his words were, Breathe normally and dont hold your breath! Looking back now I can tell that watching oceanographic documentaries and mimicking how a lion seal would swim was probably a strange behavior. But what I remember the most was the magic of it all. When I was 13 I had the opportunity to dive at the Aquarius habitat, now the last underwater habitat in the USA, and rather than looking at the amazing feat of a home under the sea, I was playing with the sh. I was imagining that they were talking to me, just as if we were waiting for the bus on any street in America, and they would divulge what their daily lives were like. As life moved forward, opportunities arose that many people would strive for a lifetime to achieve. At 16 my father insisted that my big brother and I would be taking a cavern diving class so that, God forbid we ended up in a cave, we would have and idea of how to get out. I was hooked. I remember the moment well, as we descended into the last dive of the class, at Orange Grove Spring in the Peacock Springs State Park, the powerful lights of the divers illuminating this vast cavern that held at least half a dozen divers comfortably, the rocky crags hiding holes yet to be explored. The sheer potential of that dive drove me into cave diving just two years later. At the age of 19, I began my new journey into diving, surface support. Now most people would say surface support isnt diving! Well, I say that you dont know how youre diving until you know how your equipment is working during a dive. I spent the better part of the next four years learning how scuba equipment of all shapes and sizes worked. I cant say that I found myself underwater much, but the times that I did were magical. In Rhode Island, I dove the U-853 Submarine, a U-boat that came within just a few miles of the U.S. coastline during World War II. At 110 feet, all that remains off of Block Island is a shattered shell of a boat. Looking at the remains haunted me; the cold tendrils of the Atlantic shivering down my spine, knowing how all hands were lost when depth charges tore the submarine into three distinct pieces. After a few years of barely diving due to my pursuit of an Electrical Engineering Degree, I found my way home and directly in a re-breather class. Most divers seldom have the means or the need to dive one of these amazing pieces of technology, but due to weight restrictions for my heart, it was either give up diving, or go high tech. Mixing re-breathers and cave diving meant that I could now explore to the back and beyond to my hearts content. Now at the ripe old age of 24, I am a re-breather, cave diver-certi ed and trained to perform maintenance most of the equipment that I may encounter during my travels. And this is only the beginning. ;) UnderwaterWakullaBy Nicole Stanton Of WakullaHeating & AirServing Wakulla & Franklin Counties850-926-5592Sales & Service All Makes & Models3232 Crawfordville Hwy.

I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to y the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of ying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to y on airplanes. It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a well-known fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correct is a mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a re ection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you y the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

Mystery of the Ochlockonee River paddleboatRed Clay Footprints, Page 3BSection B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012The Wakulla news EXTRA! Spiny Tailed Fairy Shrimp found in local puddles Page 12BBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Salvation Army is one of many organizations that arrived to aid Wakulla County victims shortly after Tropical Storm Debby hit the area. Were the front line, said Capt. Julio Da Silva, Salvation Army commanding of cer for the Big Bend. Da Silva and his team have been in the county, speci cally the parking lot of the Big Top Supermarket in Panacea, since Tuesday, June 26. Continued on Page 5BSalvation Army is still offering help in WakullaBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netTo help alleviate the problem of swarming mosquitoes in the county due to ooding from Tropical Storm Debby, the Wakulla County Commissioners approved spending money for aerial spraying in three areas previously sprayed by air, plus Panacea. Were being overwhelmed, said Pad Juarez, mosquito control director and health department administrator. They have received 500 requests for mosquito spraying in the Crawfordville area alone. He and his staff have continued to provide truck spraying for residents who request it, but are having dif- culty meeting all the needs in a timely manner, he said. They are currently truck spraying seven days a week in two shifts. The aerial spraying will help provide some relief to residents. The three areas that will be aerial sprayed with pesticide for adult mosquitoes are the most heavily populated areas in the county, including Crawfordville, St. Marks and Sopchoppy. Aerial spraying will also be done in Panacea. The commissioners approved the action at an emergency called meeting regarding the response to Debby held on Thursday, July 12, at the Wakulla County Community Center. At that meeting, Juarez said the county had already submitted an application for aerial spraying to the Department of Agriculture. Juarez was noti ed on Monday, July 16, that the county had been approved for aerial spraying, as well as supplemental truck spraying street by street. The Department of Agriculture made the choice to also do truck spraying, he said. The county was approved for public assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, so will only be required to pay for a small portion of the aerial spraying. FEMA will provide funding for 75 percent of the cost and the remaining 25 percent will be split between the state and the county. The cost for the county will be around $10,000, according to Juarez. The aerial spraying will not be done in the national forest, state parks or rivers. The sprayers must be 300 feet away from these areas. The county has not been informed when the aerial spraying will occur, but the public will receive plenty of notice before it is done, he said. The county commission also approved the purchase of larvacide for Juarezs staff to put out around the county. FEMA does not pay for larvacide. They will only pay for pesticide for adult mosquitoes. They will pay to get rid of the mosquitoes there now, Juarez said. But to truly deal with the problem, Juarez said they need to do larvacide also. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the state might end up paying the entire 25 percent and the county wouldnt have to pay a dime. They are still waiting to hear from the Florida legislature on whether they agree to pay the entire cost. In addition to aerial spraying, they are also placing larvacide in stagnant waters around the county, Juarez said. And they have also trained employees with the Public Works Department to apply larvacide in standing water they come across in the county. For those who would like their property sprayed, they need to contact the Mosquito Control Department at 926-4010.Aerial spraying for mosquitoes approved MAP SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAreas of the county approved for aerial spraying. WILLIAM SNOWDENCounty Mosquito Control Director Pad Juarez talks to commissioners at an emergency meeting held last week. TROPICAL STORM DEBBY UPDATEBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSince the county was approved for individual assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Disaster Recovery Center opened at the extension of ce on July 5, 423 people in Wakulla County have registered for assistance. According to Wakulla Countys initial damage assessment performed prior to being approved for individual assistance, 413 structures sustained some type of damage totaling more than $9 million. Weve exceeded that number identified by the county, said FEMA spokesperson Tim Tyson. Anyone who has damage from the storm is asked to register with FEMA, whether they have insurance or not. Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson said 344 application have been deemed eligible for assistance through FEMA totally a little more than $1 million. The majority of which has been housing assistance. Eligibility depends on a lot of factors, said FEMA spokesperson Tim Tyson. Including whether someone has insurance because FEMA does not duplicate insurance claims. Nearly 330 people have stopped by the DRC in the county, which remains open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. at 84 Cedar Avenue in Crawfordville. Those who sustained damage to their home or business are asked to register with FEMA before stopping by, if possible. This can be done online at www.disasterassistance.gov, by calling FEMA at 1-800-621-3362 or using the FEMA app at m.fema.gov.

The way the service would work is that there will be a link on our website to the catalog of items that we will purchase access to from Overdrive. You will be able to check out access to the material for however long we decide. Then you can send the book back to us for the next patron or access will be removed automatically at the end of the checkout period. We will begin building our e-book selection focusing on best sellers much like the New Books section in the front of the library and allow our patrons to decide by their requests and usage how large we make the collection. Please understand that the e-book version of a work costs us more than the print version so our beginning this service does not mean by any means that our entire collection will be available in e-book format. We are very excited, however, to begin building this program for our patrons as we continue to grow and adapt into the modern, state of the art library that the citizens of Wakulla County deserve. Ill keep you informed as we get closer to going live with e-books and am always available to answer any questions you may have. Summer Reading Books Update With the next school year beginning in a month, the demand for the Summer Reading books has gone through the roof at WCPL. While we have multiple copies in our collection of each of the books on the middle and high school reading lists, demand has caused the waiting list for many of them (especially the required books) to grow. If you havent already, we strongly suggest that you place your name on the hold list for any that you are interested in. A few of the hold lists have gotten so long that we cant guarantee for those near the bottom of the list that the book will be available before school begins. If you have any questions or wish to place a hold please contact us at 926-7415. One Heart Storytellers at WCPL Our next Summer Program performance will be this Thursday, July 19, as the husband and wife team One Heart Storytellers return to the library. The Worleys bring their lighthearted stories and songs which will entertain the entire family.

& www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 Page 3BMYSTERY BOAT ON THE OCHLOCKONEE By BILL McLEAN How many times have you driven across the Ochlockonee River Bridge on U.S. Highway 319 and noticed the remains of the old boat on the Franklin County side of the river? It has been there for more than 80 years, and now all you can see are the ribs at low tide. Did you know that it was a paddlewheel boat, that it was over 50 feet long and 14 feet wide, and that the owner was an artist? Let me tell you what I know about the boat and see if you can help me unravel the mystery. My grandfather built a house on the river in 1948, and our family started going to the river for weekends and summer vacations. Back in the 1950s, the boat was sunken, but the upper part of the boat was still in good condition. The paddlewheel was intact and all of the walls and the upper deck were existing. We didnt pay a lot of attention to the boat; I guess we thought it would always be there. About 1959 or 1960, my older brother and I were taking my mother for a boat ride, and she wanted to go see the paddlewheel boat. There were windows on the side of the old boat, and we pulled alongside so she could see inside. The rst thing she saw was a painting on one of the interior walls, and she asked if we thought we could cut out the boards and save the painting. We were able to saw the painting out of the boat, and my mother had it framed. After nding the picture, my grandfather asked around Sopchoppy about the history of the boat, and was told that the owner abandoned the boat around 1930, walked away and never came back, and that he was German. He was also told that after some period of time, people removed anything of value, and that it had been there ever since. This was more than 50 years ago, and since then the boat just continued to rot away until all that is left are the ribs. About two years ago, I started looking for information about the boat, hoping to nd a picture of the boat and for information about the owner who was the artist. Some people I have talked to believe the boat was the McIntyre Ferry that was used before the bridge was built in 1927. McIntyre was the old lumber town about a mile up river at the railroad trestle. I have also read about several paddlewheel boats that worked on the Ochlockonee River and Crooked River traveling between Carrabelle, McIntyre and St. Marks. They would haul cotton, turpentine and passengers. So it could have been one of these passenger boats. In doing research on the boat, I discovered information about two artists in Wakulla County. The rst, is John Piplack, who was one of the artists that painted the ceiling of the Wakulla Springs Hotel about 1935, and we know he was a German. However, the art in the hotel does not resemble the painting that came from the paddlewheel boat. The second, is the art that is painted in the Carter House in Medart. This art does, in some way, resemble the painting from the paddlewheel boat, but we dont know who painted the art in the Carter House. So, can you help me solve the mystery? Do you know anything about the paddlewheel boat? Do you have any old family photographs that might show the boat in the background, or perhaps a picture of the bridge that would show the boat? Do you know any information about either of these artists or about any other artist who might have painted the scene in the old paddlewheel boat on the Ochlockonee? If so, contact me, Bill McLean in Moultrie, Ga., at (229) 941-5127. This month I think it proper to feature some information provided to me by Bill McLean from Moultrie, Ga. I met Bill several months ago when he stopped by the Wakulla Historical Society Museum in Crawfordville while researching a large boat which was apparently beached and abandoned on the banks of the Ochlockonee River on the Franklin County side of the bridge at U.S. Highway 319. I recently spoke with Bill and learned he has pretty much exhausted all leads in his efforts to identify that boat, which has been there since at least the 1950s. I wont go into more detail as Bill did an excellent job in doing that and I have simply included herein his detailed report for all to read. I want to feature his story because our history is such an elusive thing. As we all know, it does not take long at all for factual information to either become completely lost or fact becomes ction when people speculate and others, not knowing any difference, begin to repeat the speculation as fact. Thanks to people like Bill McLean, there are many who put in the time and effort to try to recover aspects of our history before it is lost. So please, folks, take a look at his report and if you have any information that may be helpful, contact Bill and pass along the information that may solve this mystery.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy DEBBIE DIX BISHOPof Posh JavaPosh Java Organics & Gifts hosts live musical concerts by local, national and international, singer/songwriters most weekends inside their storefront caf in downtown Sopchoppy. Focusing on booking acoustic-oriented acts who have crafted enough original music to perform without covers for at least two hours, it has been the mission of Posh Java to create a space where customers can share an evening out in a comfortable and friendly environment, for a very reasonable price, and experience excellent music in an intimate setting. I have had to say no to some performers who have contacted us like the heavy metal surf band from Las Vegas who offered up a hoola-hooping exotic dancer during their loudly plugged-in, instrumental show, said Dix Bishop. But, then again, this isnt the type of show our audience comes out to see. The genres of music that have been featured at Posh have included blues, bluegrass, jazz, Celtic, folk, country, classical, Americana, Old Time, roots, honky tonk, and some combinations of styles of music, that original performers often have made up to suit their varied interests and inclinations; genres such as Swampgroove, LeftNeck, and Soul Peppered with Blues. Posh Java is not only a concert hall, but also features locally crafted and fair trade gifts, a caf/coffee shop and bakery; a small organic and gourmet grocery shop, and a farmers market every Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Posh Java will be working toward gearing up for the fall, and will not be hosting concerts in August. However, the concerts will resume once again in September. Check local media, visit poshjava.com, friend Posh Java on Facebook, or join the email list poshjava@gmail.com, to nd out about the exciting months ahead, featuring artists who will be visiting from as far as Ireland, and a lot of places in between, including many favorite local acts. Beginning on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 8 p.m., Posh Java will host Tallahasseebased blues performer Randall Big Daddy Webster (www.bigdaddyblues.com). Returning for his fourth performance at Posh, Webster has endeared audiences with his riveting vocals and blues peppered with soul, jazz and life! On Saturday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m., the boogie woogie, blues, ragtime and jazz, piano of Steve Sternberg (www.stevesterberg.com), will be featured at Posh for the rst time. And on Saturday, Sept. 29, a second Posh performance from the popular duo, Belmont & Jones (Charlie Engstrom and Carrie Hamby), will offer traditional 1920s-s style blues a style almost forgotten. Listen to them on Youtube or link to Facebook. Reservations for performances at Posh Java are encouraged, as some concerts have sold out. The cost of admission ranges between $10 and $15, generally. For details about upcoming shows, or to nd out more information about Posh or performances at Posh, visit the website, request to be added to the email, or friend Posh on Facebook. All performers can be heard via Youtube and most have Facebook pages, websites, and CDs. Performers have been booked into 2013, but concert dates will still be added for weekends not yet booked.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 Page 5BContinued from Page 1BThey have served 3,500 hot meals thanks to their kitchen on wheels. They have also given out 1,800 snacks, 2,500 cleanup kits, 7,000 cases of water, 2,000 hygiene kits and 4,000 inspirational devotions. But they offer more than just food and supplies, Da Silva said. They offer comfort. Emergency Disaster Director George Schwender said when the Salvation Army arrives and provides two meals a day and other items, it is one last thing that person who lost everything has to worry about. Its almost like were hope, Schwender said. He quoted one of the Salvation Armys messages, to be a shield in the storm, and said he felt they were doing just that through offering assistance and counseling. Chef Pat Williams, her husband Tom and son Brian, from Panama City, have been in Panacea for almost two weeks volunteering their time and preparing and serving what they call hearty meals to people in Wakulla County. We make food we would eat at home, Tom Williams said. Not only do they provide meals, they also provide an ear to listen to the stories of the disaster victims and they problems and issues they are facing. They need somebody to be a friend to them, Tom Williams said. Pat Williams added, We enjoy doing it. And were doing it for God. Everyone can help in some way, they said. We can cook for God, Tom Williams said. Spring Creek resident Ila Gray heard the Salvation Army was handing out cleanup kits, so she drove to Panacea to get one. She sustained some damage to her home, but said she was lucky. Gray was appreciative of the help given by the Salvation Army and other organizations. Theyve done some really wonderful things, she said. On Monday, the Salvation Army moved to the Disaster Recovery Center and began the second phase of disaster assistance, case management. They are no longer serving meals in Panacea. Prior to this, they were giving out meals and kits to anyone who approached them, now in order to receive assistance flood victims must have registered with FEMA. Were offering a hand up, not a hand out, Da Silva said. Da Silva said there is no timeline for how long they will be in the county. We will stay until we are no longer needed, he said. Until the need is met. The Salvation Army Thrift Store will be holding a clothing and furniture drive on Saturday, July 21, to collect items for disaster victims. For more information, call 222-0304.Continued from Page 1B Statewide, $11,773,992 has been given out to individuals and 8,203 people have registered with FEMA, according to FEMA spokesperson Tim Tyson. Nearly 600 people are registering a day, he added. In Wakulla County, they are seeing about 16 registrations a day. PUBLIC ASSISTANCE Along with individual assistance, public assistance was also approved for Wakulla County, which is available to state, tribal, local governments and certain types of private non-pro t organizations. The amount of money that will be given to the county for damages from Debby will depend on eligible projects, Tyson said. Theres no cap on this disaster, Tyson said. These projects can include debris removal, roads, bridges, culverts and public infrastructure, Tyson said. FEMA will cover 75 percent of the project and typically the state and county would split the remaining 25 percent, he said. County Administrator David Edwards said the initial damage estimate is $12.2 million, which they believe is fairly close to the nal estimate. Once a public entity registers for assistance, the state will contact the emergency management director for an applicants brie ng, which will explain what is eligible for assistance and what is not. Following that meeting, a FEMA specialist will hold a kick off meeting to help the applicant ll out its application, Tyson said. By this time, many counties have already spent the money and will typically be reimbursed, he said. Nelson said the countys kick off meeting will be Monday, July 23. PUBLIC WORKS UPDATES The Wakulla County Public Works Department has been working tirelessly to x the damages to the countys infrastructure since Debby hit. On July 12, Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said they had more than 400 work orders out in the county. Our transportation system is up and going, Fleming said. Most roads are passable, but Smith Creek Road at Syfrette Creek Bridge and Bostic Pelt Road are still closed as of Tuesday, July 17. Smith Creek Road is under repair and should be open soon, however, Bostic Pelt Road is a long term mitigation project, Fleming said. Its going to be a long process, he said. There seems to be a new issue every day, he said. Water was rushing so fast through culverts that it has caused many roads to fail after the fact. There was a cave in on Smith Creek Highway and Fleming said they have temporary repaired the road and are working with the Department of Transportation to see who is responsible for xing it. He is working on a list of projects to present to FEMA for reimbursement. BUILDING PERMITS Disaster victims who have had damage to their homes and do not have insurance received some good news at the commission meeting on July 16. The commission agreed to waive the Development Plan Amendment fee of $30, which is required before applying for a building permit. They also agreed to pay up to $200 for building permits. Building Official Rod Revell said if anyone has to perform mechanical, electrical or structural work on their home, they would be required to get a permit. Commissioner Mike Stewart said a homeowner is required to get a building permit for something as simple as changing sheet rock and putting in insulation. A monkey can put in insulation, Stewart said. He wanted to see the county try and help those people, especially many who are living paycheck to paycheck. Only those people who were affected by Tropical Storm Debby and do not have insurance would be eligible to receive help in paying for a building permit. The deadline to be eligible for this assistance is Oct. 1. LOST DOCUMENTS People who lost important documents in the ood can get free copies from the tax collectors of ce. This includes duplicate titles, registrations, drivers licenses, ID cards and handicap titles. For more information, call the tax collector at 926-3371. ASSISTANCE VOUCHERS Flood victims can receive a $25 voucher to redeem at Goodwill Industries, 2173 Crawfordville Highway. Each person is eligible for one voucher. The vouchers are being distributed by the American Red Cross. The Salvation Army is also giving out clothing and furniture vouchers that can be redeemed at the Salvation Army Thrift Store in Tallahassee, 2131 Jackson Bluff Road. DONATIONS Donations can be made to the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, which is targeting people who have yet to receive help. The WCCY is a non-pro t 501c3.

Ammons, who makes upwards of $325,000 a year, resigned mid-week amid continuing fallout from Champions death and a lingering list of other concerns at the historically black university ranging from poor student-retention rates and sexual abuse to budget de cits and accounting fraud. Ammons resignation came a month after receiving a vote of no-con dence from the FAMU Board of Trustees and nearly eight months after Champions death. The resignation was tendered the same day Champions family led a lawsuit in Orlando against FAMU and the company that operated the charter bus in which the hazing allegedly occurred. Ammons said he would stay as president until Oct. 11 and remain on campus after that time as tenured professor. Trustees will meet Monday by telephone to discuss his resignation. Champion died on a charter bus in November after the universitys renowned marching band performed at the annual Florida Classic football game in Orlando. Thirteen band members have been charged in Champions death. Of those, 11 face felony hazing charges and could face up to six years in prison. Two others were charged with misdemeanors. While the hazing case has drawn national attention, some university-system of cials have been as troubled by other issues, including allegations of fraud involving summaries of an audit that hadnt actually been done and a sexual assault of a minor at FAMUs research school. This is not about hazing, this is about leadership or lack of leadership at FAMU, said Trustee Rufus Montgomery. There have been over 30 serious issues over the past year that have come before this board .This all came under the watch of the current president. For the last seven months weve danced around it week after week, problem after problem. LAWSUIT: CARROLL CAUGHT IN COMPROMISING POSITION Controversy swirled within Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carrolls office this week as a former aide said she caught Carroll in a compromising position with another aide shortly before getting red. Former aide Carletha Cole, who faces criminal charges for sharing a recorded conversation of Carrolls chief of staff with a reporter for The Florida TimesUnion, made the accusations of sexual impropriety as part of her defense. The allegations were included in response to a request by prosecutors to seal some of the court documents in Coles upcoming trial. The lieutenant governor has vehemently denied the accusations. Unfortunately, as an elected official, character deformation that is totally fabricated can occur like this and there is not much I can do, Carroll wrote in response to an email from Mary Jane and George Duryea of Lake Mary. The media loves to put out sensational stories without doing due diligence to verify the authenticity. Coles motion portrays a dysfunctional of ce where Carrolls aides frequently recorded conversations and the lieutenant governor pushed for a website where fans could follow her. It also says Steve MacNamara, former chief of staff for Gov. Rick Scott, viewed Carroll as a loose cannon, in the words of the ling. But its most sensational anecdote concerns Cole inadvertently walking in on what she believed to be a sexual encounter between Carroll and a female employee. When she entered the of ce, she found the Lieutenant Governor and her Travel Aide, Beatriz Ramos, in what can only be described as a compromising position, according to a motion filed by Coles lawyer. Cole passed a polygraph late last year concerning her claim. Polygraphs are not admissible in court, but details of the test were included in the court le. According a report from the polygraph expert, a retired FDLE chief polygraph examiner, Cole answered yes to questions about the incident, including Did you ever observe Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll and Ramos in a sexually compromising position in the Capitol? DRUG LAW UPHELD The Florida Supreme Court ruled a state drug possession statute can force some defendants to prove their innocence, in one of the most closely watched drug cases decided in recent years. In a 5-2 ruling, the court upheld a 2002 Florida law that says defendants busted with drugs are presumed to have known the substance they were holding was illegal. And if they claim they didnt, the law requires them to prove that to a jury. The provision puts Florida at odds with at least 48 other states that require prosecutors to convince a jury that defendants knew they were carrying illegal drugs. Under the Florida law upheld Thursday, the state still must prove that defendants knew they were in possession of something. For example, if drugs are found in the trunk of a car, the state would have to prove the defendant knew that some substance was there. The high court was asked to weigh in on the case after a state circuit judge in Manatee County last year threw out 46 drug possession cases, saying they con icted with a recent federal court opinion that found the law unconstitutional. Lower federal court decisions arent binding on state courts, but some state judges have dismissed cases based on the federal ruling. That led to the Manatee case being sent directly to the states highest court. STATE TO RELEASE VOTER LIST State of cials will release a lis t of 180,000 names at the center of a controversy over attempts to remove non-citizens from the voting rolls, after determining that the information is a public record, according to the Department of State. The collection is essentially the master list that the Secretary of States of- ce used to come up with a sampling of 2,700 names of suspected non-citizens that was then sent to county elections supervisors. Supervisors have since said that many of the names either belong to citizens or to people who cant be contacted. Some non-citizens have been removed from the rolls as part of the voter purge. In late June, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle rebuffed a request by the U.S. Department of Justice to issue a restraining order blocking the state from continuing its purge efforts, but only after receiving assurance from the state that it was no longer actively pursuing the initiative. At least two other lawsuits have been led against the state, which is in turn suing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to gain access to a federal database that of cials say would make future efforts more accurate. CAMPAIGNS/GROUPS ANNOUNCE SECOND QTR FINANCES Large chunks of money flowed during the past three months to House, Senate and Supreme Court candidates who are trying to win high-pro le campaigns or capture vacant seats. The campaign numbers were the rst round to be seen since new maps for legislative and congressional districts were approved. A prime example is former Senate President Tom Lee, a Brandon Republican who collected $199,585 in contributions as he tries to return to the Senate in District 24. Lee is locked in a primary campaign against Rep. Rachel Burgin, R-Riverview, as they seek to replace Sen. Ronda Storms, who made a surprise announcement in May that she would not seek re-election. Burgin raised $50,248 during the years second quarter and, combined with money she raised before Storms announcement, has an overall total of $122,223. Candidates faced a Friday deadline for ling updated campaign- nance reports. Another example is a South Florida Senate race that pits two incumbents whose districts were redrawn as part of the oncea-decade reapportionment process. Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale, reported raising $106,196 during the quarter, giving her an overall total of $366,767. Candidates werent the only ones raising money. A committee closely aligned with Gov. Rick Scott collected $2.85 million in contributions during the past three months. The Lets Get to Work Committee has hauled in a total of nearly $3.8 million in 2012 more than two years before Scott is expected to seek re-election. Between April 4 and July 3, the committee collected nine contributions of $100,000 or more, as money came from companies and people with interests in issues such as energy, health care and gambling. The biggest contributors during the second quarter were Florida Power & Light Co., casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and prominent investor H. Wayne Huizenga, with each giving $250,000 to the committee. STORY OF THE WEEK: FAMU President James Ammons steps down. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Weve got the FAMU students on trial this fall in the Champion case, we have no band this fall, weve got a drop in enrollment coming, and I read the other day the Florida Senates (considering) investigating the school. I mean, come on, you all, we need to deal with this. FAMU Trustee Rufus Montgomery expressing his frustration over the slow pace of reforms at the university. Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comWEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Resignations, scandal, campaign bucks ood capitalBy MARGIE MENZELTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 16 After winning access to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security database of non-citizens living in Florida, Gov. Rick Scott said he sees no reason why the states 67 elections supervisors shouldnt return to removing ineligible voters from the rolls. But the supervisors, many of whom have resisted the purge, say theyre not ready to trust the new lists without reviewing them rst especially with less than four months remaining until the November election. My worst nightmare is we get close to a presidential election, and someone challenges maybe 100,000 possible non-citizens at the polls on Election Day, said Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall. If that happens, we wont get our results for weeks. The state appeared to win a months-long struggle with the federal government Saturday over use of the Systematic Alien Veri cation for Entitlements, or SAVE, database. The state maintained that it had the right to use the list, while DHS said Florida hadnt provided all the information needed for that. The state eventually sued the feds for access to the database, and Florida of cials said in recent weeks theyve supplied the information the feds wanted. Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner quickly sent a letter Saturday to elections supervisors, suggesting that the SAVE material would allow the purge to resume. You know, its very reliable data, so I cant imagine theyre not going to go forward and make sure, Scott told CNN Monday. Cause I dont know anybody any supervisor of elections or anybody in our state that thinks non-U.S. citizens ought to be voting in our races. Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho said supervisors dont know when theyll get the lists or how accurate theyll be. He said Scott and Detzner are inexperienced at running statewide elections. But those who have been here in 2000 and 2004 realize that if you produce a list thats highly inaccurate, in all probability what youre going to do is disenfranchise legal voters, and Im sure thats not what anybody wants to do, he said. Voting rights groups are also worried about the timing. Supervisors in wait and see mode over new lists 5Congratulations! Youve successfully registered your thewakullanews.com user account.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 Page 7B -Janet Special to The NewsA lot has changed for 21st-century women, but one thing hasnt: Moms still juggle insanely busy lives and their needs usually fall last on the list, says Columbia Universitycerti ed health coach Beth Aldrich. That includes eating as in, really loving what you eat. Because you didnt really love that bag of chips you downed while watching An Affair to Remember for the 200th time, did you? How could you? asks Aldrich, author of the award-winning new book, Real Moms Love to Eat (www.RealMomsLoveToEat.com). Who could possibly be aware of chips with Cary Grant on the screen? Its wonderful to take pleasure in food, she says. Its even OK to eat the things we shouldnt every once in awhile just be sure to savor every bite. Eating in front of the TV is not savoring, Aldrich says. There are also plenty of great healthy ingredients that you can turn into new foods to love, even healthier versions of those favorite comfort foods from childhood. Youll finish meals feeling energized, emotionally satis ed and best of all, not guilty. And, oh yeah! Youll look great in your skinny jeans! Aldrich offers ways to kick off the romance: Make it all about YOU : Get back to the basics, remembering the pleasure inherent in the food experiences of your childhood. Think of the simple joy you had crunching into a sweet apple. How does that compare with the high-fructose corn syrup-drenched, refined wheat- our products that leave you bloated and craving more? Whole foods those eaten in their natural, unprocessed state, such as a baked potato versus French fries -give you a fuller eating experience, increase energy and help you look great! Get naked with raw foods: Our earliest ancestors were hunter-gatherers who foraged for and consumed a wide variety of caloric intake, mostly consisting of raw veggies. Your body will thank you not long after you include more raw food into your diet, but you dont have to go the full Monty right away. Add fresh berries to your breakfast yogurt, include fresh nuts with your lunch, or replace coleslaw from the supermarket deli with a fresh recipe made from scratch. Tame your cravings dragon: One of the swiftest paths to an unhealthy snacking binge is readymade, highly-processed sweets and baked goods. The craving-attack occurs when moms are busy and havent planned their meals for the day and it leads to a spike in blood sugar, a crash and then another monster-sized craving. Have healthy options ready to go. Nutrient-dense whole grains such as quinoa, whole-grain toast with sesame butter, and oatmeal will turn that dragon of yours into a pussycat in no time. Hungry for more lovin?: Think you could force yourself to eat an ounce of dark chocolate every day? High-quality dark chocolate the kind that doesnt have all the llers actually has lots of bene ts, not the least of which is its chocolate! Dark chocolate contains natural chemicals that serve as mood boosters and elevate serotonin levels, which enhance our sense of well-being. Health bene ts range from keeping blood vessels elastic to increasing antioxidant levels. The wrong way to look at the whole-food diet is as an obligation, Aldrich says. You are doing your body and your taste buds a favor by excluding unnecessary sugar, salt and processed fats from your diet in favor of a variety of spices, fuller textures and a sexier gure.

Page 12B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 19, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy LES HARRISONWakulla Extension DirectorThe pools, puddles and temporary ponds left behind by Tropical Storm Debby are receding daily, only to be momentarily refreshed by afternoon scattered showers. The eeting surface water is already home to little creatures, and not just mosquitoes. Fairy shrimp have made an appearance in Wakulla County. There are three known varieties in Florida, but the ones in Wakulla County are Spiny Tailed Fairy Shrimp. These freshwater invertebrates are classi ed as crustaceans and have a long and ancient lineage. The fossil records indicate the earliest Fairy Shrimp lived in the Cambrian Epoch, or about 500 million years ago. All animal life during this period was aquatic and included the better known trilobites. As earths geology changed, they may have been forced to adapt to life in temporary pools and hyper-saline lakes. They were easy prey and a ready source of food for early bony shes in the oceans and freshwater lakes. Today there are 300 species spread across eight Anostraca families worldwide and come in a rainbows variety of colors. They can be found in desert pools, ice-covered mountain lakes and in the Antarctic. They all, including the ones in Wakulla County, swim upside-down while feeding on ltering organic particles from the water or scraping algae from surfaces. Their length will easily t inside a quarter. These short-lived creatures appear when the environmental conditions are just right for their quick hatching and reproductive process. Some varieties are reported to lay eggs the rst day after they hatch. When the temporary ponds, pools and puddles evaporate, the Fairy Shrimp eggs will lay dormant in the soil for years, decades, possibly even a century, before the next hatch. There they will wait until the next time environmental conditions are correct for their reappearance, next year or next century.
