By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe past several months has brought out those people who oppose and those who support the Wakulla County Airport in full force. In response to the immense controversy surrounding the airport, a workshop was held for the Wakulla County Commission on July 17 to hear from both sides. This issue is in the top 3 for the amount of emails received from concerned citizens, said Commissioner Alan Brock. The controversy started after a portion of private property on Surf Road that is next to the airport was cleared and a sign stating that it was the future site of the airport expansion was placed on the site. Many residents in the area became concerned about a possible expansion and their properties being impacted. Several of these residents spoke at the workshop, wanting the airport to remain as it is. Some also urged the county commission to turn the airport back over to Tarpine residents and let it be a private airport. Lets focus on things that actually add value to Wakulla County,Ž said Troy Mills, a member of the Ochlockonee Bay Alliance, a group that is against the airport expansion. After listening to almost 40 people share their opinion, four out of “ ve commissioners expressed their desire to keep the airport as a county amenity. I dont want to see the airport go away,Ž Commissioner Mike Stewart said. The airport is a value to many, he said. But to most of us, its a strip of land.Ž Commissioner Randy Merritt said 95 percent of residents dont care about the airport, however, if asked if they mind the county having an airport, Merritt said he was sure they wouldnt. They just dont want to pay for it,Ž Merritt said.

Hicks Seaman Morris Tilley Sides square off over airport Four of the “ ve commissioners indicate their support for airport expansion at workshopBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 23 – The Florida Department of Education is once again dealing with the fallout from test scores and school grades, this time after admitting that dozens of grades released earlier this month were mistaken. In all, 213 schools and nine districts had to have their grade revised as part of a “continuous review process,” according to the agency. The move affects 8 percent of the schools in the state. All of the scores increased by a single letter grade. “School grades are important to students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators and the community,” Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson announced. “And, while I am pleased that the continuous review process has resulted in better grades, we will continue to look for ways to improve the grade calculation process.” The changes, announced after the close of business day Friday, eased some of what had been a dramatic drop in the grades so far. The number of “A” schools, for example, had plummeted from 1,481 in 2011 to 1,124 this year. That number is instead 1,240 -representing a jump of 5 percentage points in the number of schools getting the highest grade. Continued on Page 9APRESENTING INFORMATION: Supporters and opponents of the airport expansion presented their information to county commissioners at a workshop on Tuesday, July 17. Speaking for the expansion was Airport Manager Steve Fults, top left, while speaking against it was Troy Mills, below. The commission chambers was packed with citizens both for and against, and many expressed their opposition with stickers, like the one above. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe school district grades have been released and for the seventh consecutive year, Wakulla School District has earned an A.Ž With the standards for the new Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test 2.0 being much stricter and the cut scores being raised, schools across the state have seen a drop in school and district grades, but Wakulla was able to maintain its A.Ž They can keep ratcheting up the scores,Ž said Superintendent David Miller. The teachers are savvy and adapt to the changes and the students continue to meet those high standards, he said. Wakulla ranked 11th last year and dropped to 13 or 14 this year, according to Miller. We made it by the skin of our teeth,Ž Miller said. This year, only 17 school districts out of 68 were rated an A,Ž according to Beth ODonnell, assistant superintendent for instruction. Last year, 30 districts received an A.Ž Wakulla was the only district in the Big Bend to receive the high grade. The closest school districts that received an AŽ were Okaloosa County to the west and Clay County to the east, Miller said. Were in pretty elite company,Ž Miller said. Neighboring school districts that experienced a drop in rating included Leon, Gulf, Calhoun and Liberty counties, all which dropped from an AŽ to a B.Ž The rating is from a cumulative score of all the FCAT 2.0 points from all Wakulla public schools in reading, writing, math and science in grades three through 10 for the 2011-12 school year. For the “ rst time, scores from the new End of Course exam in Algebra 1 counted as well, according to ODonnell. Out of the nine years that districts have been graded on this scale, Wakulla has only been rated a BŽ one year, which was the second year. All other years, the district has received an A.Ž I think thats significant,Ž Miller said. It has sustained a tradition of excellence over the years.Ž He credited the teachers, who are the cruxŽ and the students, administrators, staff and parents for the achievement. Previously it was announced that Medart Elementary School had dropped from an AŽ to a B,Ž but a recent recalculation of school grades by the Florida Department of Education moved Medart from two points away from an AŽ to an of“ cial A,Ž according to ODonnell. This gives them 11 consecutive years of an AŽ rating.Continued on Page 9A School grades are recalculated, Wakulla gains another ‘A’State revises school grades upwards Superintendent of Schools David Miller 30 puppies abandoned at animal shelter e Wakulla County Animal Shelter was overwhelmed this week after someone dropped o 30 puppies. e pups, from several di erent litters, included some shepherd mix and black lab puppies.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA FEMA hazard mitigation specialist was on hand last week to offer homeowners some mitigation tips. Gerry Bonney said one of the biggest issue his of“ ce deals with is mold and mildew. It is the biggest concern of victims that his team addresses. The best thing to do is get things cleaned up as soon as possible, Bonney said. This does not just include mold and mildew on walls and ceilings, but on furnishing as well. A lot of time people try to salvage the items, he said. Dont try to save everything.Ž Sometimes there is no way to get rid of the mold and mildew, he added. If youre not sure what to do, thats what were here for,Ž Bonney said. The No. 1 biggest thing Bonney stressed was for every homeowner to get ” ood insurance, even if they do not live in a ” ood area. Renters can also get renters insurance, he said. The best way to be prepared is to have the right information,Ž Bonney said. And the cheapest best item people can get is a weather radio, he said. It will wake you up in the middle of the night,Ž Bonney said. He also stressed the importance of a family to have an emergency plan. Visit ready.gov for a checklist. Some other tips: € Install back flow valves for when the sewer backs up. € Construct barriers if the home sits in a low spot to channel the water away from the home. € Put important papers in a waterproof container somewhere up high. € Retro“ t the roof. Go in to the existing structure and reinforce it to keep it from leaking in the future. € If the air conditioning unit was ” ooded, look at elevating it. Visit FEMA.gov or floodsmart.gov to get more information. Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe political forum for the candidates for Wakulla County sheriff scheduled for Tuesday, July 17, was canceled after candidate Charlie Creel learned that his opponent, Major Maurice Langstons son was ill in the hospital. Prior to Tuesday, Langston had expressed his intention not to attend the forum held by the Wakulla County Christian Coalition and Concerned Citizens of Wakulla County. Creel planned to attend the forum. Whether Langston showed or not, the groups intended to proceed with the forum. However, Creel said he learned of Langstons sons condition around 5 p.m. on Tuesday and just didnt feel holding a forum was the right thing to do. This is not a time of campaigning,Ž Creel said. It is a time of prayer.Ž CCOW and the christian coalition plan to reschedule the forum, but have not yet set a date. Langstons son, Loren Heath Langston, 37, passed away Saturday, July 21. Funeral services were held on Tuesday, July 24. FILE PHOTOSCandidates for Wakulla County Sheriff: Charlie Creel, left, and Maurice LangstonSheriff’s forum is postponedBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe St. Marks City Commission awarded the contract for its streetscape improvements to Hale Contracting on July 9. The city was awarded a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant for downtown revitalization. Hale Contractings bid was $398,123 and includes the addition of a sidewalk on both sides of Port Leon Drive from Pine Street to Riverside Drive, an imprint of a lighthouse in the center of the road at the end of Riverside Drive, benches, trash cans, period lighting and landscaping improvements. The landscaping improvements include a 4-foot median in certain points of the road, which would have ” owers and other plants to help with the beauti“ cation of the road. Work will begin 10 days after the contract is signed, said City Manager Zoe Mans“ eld. They are hoping it will be finished before the Stone Crab Festival in October. In other news: € The commission appointed City Commissioner Ray Stokes as the citys representative on the countys planning commission. The county recently amended its planning commission to have Sopchoppy and St. Marks representatives be voting members. In 2009, the county commission voted to change the composition of the planning commission, making Sopchoppy and St. Marks non-voting members. People in both cities became upset and some chose not to attend the planning commission meetings after that. Mans“ eld will serve as the alternate. The next meeting is Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. at city hall.CITY OF ST. MARKSBids for streetscape improvements awardedBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 20 … Floridas June jobless rate remained unchanged from May at 8.6 percent but 2.1 percentage points lower than June 2011, the Department of Economic Opportunity reported Friday. The newest “ gures come three days after state economists released a report crediting much of the recent drop in the states unemployment rate to a shrinking labor pool and not to more people “ nding work. But state employment “ gures point to an increase of 70,900 non-agricultural jobs created since June 2011, a 1 percent increase that Gov. Rick Scott said re” ects a slow but steady march toward economic recovery. As companies are choosing to grow and expand in our state, we are continuing to see Florida experience a positive economic recovery,Ž Scott said in a statement. Floridians have more and more opportunities to get back to work, and last month, 9,000 Floridians were able to get a job and provide for their families.Ž Floridas June figure mirrored the national outof-work picture. The U.S. rate for June also remained unchanged from May and stood at 8.2 percent. Fridays release showed year-to-year gains in health care, professional services and trade employment, which posted a combined increase of 77,200 jobs. Tourism employment also increased by 19,300 over the year. Floridas construction sector continued to suffer, with 24,900 fewer jobs available compared to a year ago. The number of government jobs fell by 10,100. Despite the job gains, the Legislatures Of“ ce of Economic and Demographic Research released a report Tuesday saying Floridas unemployment rate would be 9.5 percent if labor market analysts took into account a significant drop in the number of people seeking employment. Economists attributed 69 percent of the jobless rate declines since December to a shrinking labor force and not to job creation. The panel concluded it would take the creation of 1 million jobs to reach the employment peak reached in early 2007. Unemployment figures do not take into account long-term unemployed or discouraged workers who are longer seeking jobs. Scott acknowledged as much earlier this week but said Friday that other economic indicators point to an increase in employment in sectors that have suffered. I know we still have a lot more work to do, and we wont stop until every Floridian who wants a job is able to get one,Ž Scott said after visiting a workforce center in Zephyrhills, near Tampa, Friday morning. Among Floridas 19 metropolitan areas, CrestviewFort Walton Beach-Destin had the states lowest jobless rate in June, at 6.1 percent. It was followed by Gainesville (7.3 percent), and Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach-Deer“ eld Beach and Tallahassee (7.7 percent each). The states highest metro unemployment rate was Palm Coast at 12.3 percent. It was followed by SebastianVero Beach (11.3 percent), and Port St. Lucie (10.9 percent) Mitigation specialist o ers tipsFor more on Debby’s aftermath, see stories on Page 1B • FEMA holds brie ng on assistance • Disaster Recovery Center will remain openState jobless rate unchanged in JuneFrom WorkforcePlusJune 2012 saw a slight increase in unemployment for our local area, however, the Tallahassee metro area (Gadsden, Leon, Wakulla and Jefferson) continues to hold the third lowest unemployment rate in the state. Gadsdens non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June was 8.9 percent, Leons was 7.6 percent, and Wakulla was 7.4 percent. Industries with the most growth in the tri-county area were leisure and hospitality, education and health services and professional and business services. During the month of June, there were 5,333 online advertised vacancies in Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties according to the Help Wanted OnLine Data Series by the Conference Board. While openings listed online cover a number of industries, the most in-demand occupations were for Registered Nurses, Web Developers, Truck Drivers and First Line Supervisors.Local unemployment up slightly 2nd Annual Landon Greene Memorial Scholarship CHARITY Golf Tournament Saturday Aug. 11, 2012 at 8:15 A.M.Hole Sponsors are $100 per holeAll Proceeds go to WAKULLA PRE-KFor more information or to sign up call Jared Greene (850-556-8982) or Amber Greene (850-556-6109) or email amber@famb.org. $220 Per Team (4 person team) or $55 per personThank You for Your Support!!!

READERS WRITE: e airport issue continues to spark debate County will “ ll wetlands for airport Looking at candidate Don Curtis Candidate Halsey Beshears seeks support Clothes donations for victims appreciatedEditor, The News: In keeping with researching the people running for the District 7, Florida House of Representatives, I took a look at Don Curtis to see how he is connected to Wakulla County. Mr. Curtis is proud of being the owner and manager of The Forestry Company. He is an expert concerning timberlands, including timberlands in Wakulla County and works for Wakulla County landowners. Im convinced Mr. Curtis understands the trials (and rewards) of owning a small business. He has created jobs and knows the burdens of unnecessary regulations. I was also impressed that Mr. Curtis chose to use local businesses to promote his campaign. Despite having business relations with businesses in a neighboring county, he chose to spend some of his campaign money with Wakulla County businesses. Water is always a concern. I discovered Mr. Curtis is a former Governing Board Member of a Water Management District and understands water issues. Mr. Curtis spent 10 years of his career as the assistant director of the Florida Division of Forestry and the director of Land Acquisition for a water management district. I believe he will remember the lessons he learned if he is our representative in the Florida Legislature. As you consider who to support in the Republican Primary, please do your own research. We have several good candidates who would do a good job in representing us. Most important of all is to research all the candidates to determine who you feel will best represent your beliefs. Ed Brimner Crawfordville Editor, The News: An open letter to Wakulla County voters: Hello, my name is Halsey Beshears and I am running as a Republican for the Florida House of Representatives. I run a small nursery and landscape business in Monticello, and my wife Cristi and I are also raising our three daughters in Jefferson County. I am running to be your State Representative because I believe we need our strong North Florida values represented in the Florida Capitol. I am not a career politician, never held a political of“ ce or ever run for a political of“ ce. However, I am familiar enough with the inner workings of Tallahassee having testi“ ed to committees before and working with legislatures to prevent bad legislation from taking place. Wakulla County is very important to me. In fact, my brothers and I have owned property in Wakulla County combined for over a decade. We pay property tax and we have a vested interest in the economic growth and prosperity of the businesses in the county. Like many of you, our family makes its living off the land, growing native and fruiting trees. Our nursery was truly a green business long before being greenŽ was the political buzzword or it was coolŽ to do. We nursery people are the original stewards of the land and water. As a small business owner I have seen and struggled with balancing a budget, making a payroll, and remaining nimble enough to keep the business going, while still navigating the endless mine “ eld of regulation at all levels of government. I believe we have to get the government out of the way of small business. This does not mean repeal every regulation on the books, it means applying some common sense, some logic and being practical to protect our natural resources while still allowing businesses to keep the employees they have to create new jobs. If you believe these issues are important then I humbly ask you to give me the privilege and honor of serving you in Tallahassee. If you would like to learn more about me or share your thoughts on how we can protect and improve our north Florida home, please call me at (850) 274-1084 or visit our website at www.halseybeshears.com. Most importantly, please get out and vote. Early voting starts Aug. 4 and runs through Aug. 11 and the primary is Aug. 14. I hope to hear from many of you soon! Very respectfully, Halsey Beshears Republican candidate Florida House of Representatives Editor, The News: I would like to invite all the citizens of Wakulla County to visit their county airport. If you live in St. Marks you will get to enjoy a 30 mile drive across the entire county. Dont make the mistake of stopping when you “ nally do see an airstrip. You must continue to Surf Road turn right, go one half-mile to Bay Drive to the airport sign and make another right. Do not be concerned because there is not a sign telling you it is the Wakulla County Airport. In 35 years of ownership, weŽ have just forgotten to identify it as an airport. You may have heard it called the Tarpine Landing strip since they have identi“ ed themselves as a ” y-in community.Ž If you live in the Bloxom Cut-off area, you too can drive the 30-35 miles across the county to our most southern border. A word of caution-if your children are with you and actually want to see an airplane land or take off, you may want to go north 20 miles to the Tallahassee Regional Airport. Many days, no airplanes land or take off at the Wakulla County Airport (the one your tax dollars is supporting). Once you turn on Bay Drive, go to the locked gate and park in the road (there is nowhere else to park). You cant drive in but you can walk through the gap in the gate onto the airstrip. I dont believe it is illegal since you are a part-owner as a taxpayer. You have been paying tax dollars for maintenance and insurance through your ad valorem taxes. If the BOCC moves forward with the Tarpine proposed improvements and expansion, you will be paying with state tax dollar from taxes on air ” ights, aviation fuel and motor fuel (gasoline). It will be nice to have every Floridian help us pay the $3-plus million the county has for the airport in its “ ve-year Capital Outlay Plan. If no airplanes are present when you visit, walk onto the northwest property edge towards Highway 98. Do not walk on the east side of the airstrip or you may accidently stray into the Tarpine residents property and I know that would be illegal. As you move along (the west border) you can stop and observe the wildlife and the THREE wetlands you pass. You can wear shorts because there are no longer any buffers around the wetlands. The wetlands trees and shrubs were illegally removed. The airstrip ends at the water on both the north or south borders. The wetlands might be a good thing to show your children because they wont be the same (or in existence) for their children. Because no FDOT of“ cial showed up at the BOCC Airport Workshop to answer questions, the county will “ ll in 50 feet of the wetlands to create the FDOT required 250 feet width for the landing strip at Tarpine. I am not sure why the BOCC voted to protect buffer zones for you and me on our private property but, somehow, they can “ ll wetlands on public property whenever they want. It seems to me there are three possible reasons for this dilemma: 1. BOCC didnt realize they would be required to “ ll wetlands when they agreed to go forward; or 2. There is no place better in our county for an airport; or 3. The need for this airport is so great it justi“ es action contrary to BOCCs own stated policies. It must be #3 because BOCC would not allow a homeowner/builder to “ ll in wetlands to build a home.If a few hours pass and you havent seen an airplane (contrails dont count), at least enjoy a meal at one of our local restaurants. They have good food, parking lots for your car and restrooms which you will need by now. Stan Brown Ochlockonee Bay Editor, The News: I was forwarded an email (see below) and would like to present my understanding of the facts and support for the BOCC. (The forwarded email: Hello: Madeleine Carr here: Sharing this is from a person on Ochlockonee Bay: (I dont know if Wakulla Gardens has a neighborhood association, but some interesting facts that might be shared with your neighbors. BOCC wants to solicit more than $3 million from FDOT to buy land, move and pave the airstrip runway. There are a million reasons NOT to support and among them would be the environmental sensitivity of the area and the inability to be self-sustaining. Look at Carrabelle or Apalachicola airports „ they depend HEAVILY on taxpayer funding for maintenance, insurance and more. (If they are asking Wakulla Gardens residents to PAY for the roads, why is BOCC not soliciting FDOT funding to help pave those roads? (Just food for thought. Our group on Ochlockonee Bay feels strongly that taxpayers should not support an airport used primarily by individuals.Ž) Some citizens may have become unnecessarily distressed, especially those in Wakulla Gardens. I understand Ms. Carr forwarded the email on behalf of another and correctly so … thank you. Ms. Carr. First and foremost, these state funds CANNOT be used for anything other than airport improvements. They are 100 percent state grants with no match that will simply go to another county if Wakulla rejects them. These funds are derived from an aviation fuel tax surcharge, which is paid for by purchasers of aviation fuel. Second, the improvements will signi“ cantly increase safety for both aviators and nearby residents, while reducing noise levels. These are PRECISELY the reasons FDOT Aviation has proposed funding improvements for the Wakulla County airport to the tune of over $3 million in state funding. The county is entitled to a 10-percent administration fee on these grants. Third, the BOCC did not solicitŽ FDOT Aviation, it was a resident of Tarpine that spearheaded the effort some 7 years ago. A tremendous amount of time and effort was spent and now its “ nally about to pay off. Theres a plan in place that was developed by various professionals and experts in the “ eld whose job it is to design safe, ef“ cient, and sustainable airports. Fourth, these improvements will allow the airport to generate signi“ cant revenue that will more than offset the operating expenses. What other county infrastructure pays for itself? The answer is none. Our parks, boat ramps, piers, library, roads and bridges, buildings, planning and zoning, public safety, etc. all lose money and thats OK. The airport is unique in that it will enjoy generating revenue with hanger rents, access fees, fuel sales, landing fees, and tie down fees. There will be NO burden to the taxpayers of Wakulla County as a condition of BOCC support. Fifth is the direct boost to the local economy from additional visitors and job creation. These may be small or these may be huge, no one really knows at this point. I believe there will be a signi“ cant increase if well managed. The fact is that in our current economy we should be doing anything and everything possible to help, it sure cant hurt! Sixth, progress and ecology CAN coexist despite what some would have you believe. Im an environmentalist, not radical, but rational environmentalist. I understand very clearly the great need for environmental preservation and mitigation. Having said that, once the project begins every regulation and policy will be fully complied with, especially in light of the intense scrutiny certain to follow. Its interesting to me that the core group of opponents live on Surf Road along the coast and claim negative environmental impacts, yet many have docks with creosoted pilings extending far into our bay. Many run powerboats whose engines exhaust toxic pollutants directly into our bay. They have homes that obstruct the view of our bay and roofs that create runoff directly into our bay. Many have septic systems and have not hooked up to sewer yet. The point is, we have been very tolerant of these things and simply wish they would show just a little tolerance in return. After all, the airport didnt move next to them, they moved next to the airport. Lastly, at the standing room only BOCC workshop held this past Tuesday, July 17, there were hours of debate from both sides. In the end, four of the “ ve commissioners expressed support for the airport improvements. Only one opposed, Jerry Moore. The county administrator also supports improvements to the airport. If there are a million reasons NOT to support the improvements, there are more than million TO support the improvements. I believe that when four of “ ve commissioners and administrator agree, its very likely a good decision for Wakulla County. Certainly its how our system is designed to work. I applaud both sides for coming to the workshop and presenting arguments for and against these improvements. Special thanks go to FDOT Aviation, our commissioners, and an administrator who all have the vision and recognize the value of having an improved airport that will bene“ t future generations of Wakullans. Missing this outstanding opportunity would have been a real travesty. Thank you. Respectfully to all, Steve Fults Panacea Editor, The News: On behalf of the Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee, we sincerely thank all of you who brought clothing to our Headquarters for distribution to the ” ood victims. Your generosity has directly bene“ ted the storm victims and their families. The WDEC is glad to be among the organizations that came to the aid of those in need. Due to the generosity of citizens and business owners in the community, our organization was able to deliver clothing that was desperately needed for families that lost everything. The “ rst load consisted of 18 large bags and two large boxes of clothing for men, women and childrens items. Over 20 bags of clothing and shoes were donated by a local childrens consignment shop. Families were contacted by FEMA to inform them of the availability of the needed clothing and shoes. Nearly all donations were distributed in a few days. Appreciation is also given to the hard working people of our FEMA of“ ce here in Crawfordville. Joan Hendrix Secretary WDEC Because of a typographical error, the phone number for mosquito control was wrong in the story Aerial spraying for mosquitoes approvedŽ that appeared in last weeks News. We regret the error. To contact the countys Mosquito Control department, call 926-0410.Correction

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 – Page 5A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAnother amendment to the Wakulla County Wetlands Ordinance has been brought forward by the county commission. This amendment would allow those lots platted prior to 1995 to be granted a variance by the Planning Department to build within the 40-foot buffer zone. Commissioner Alan Brock proposed the change and said the current ordinance allows for variances, but this would allow them to be approved by the planning director, instead of having to come before the commission. These are variances that should be automatically granted,Ž Brock said. Only those lots platted prior to 1995 would be allowed to go this route and they would still not be allowed to build within the 35-foot buffer closest to the wetland. There are numerous lots in the Shell Point and Spring Creek areas that are unbuildable with the 75-foot buffer in place, Brock said. Brock wanted to see the commission set a size limit on how big the structure can be to have this amendment apply. He suggested 1,200 square feet. If someone wants to build a 10,000 square-foot home, but can build a 9,000 square-foot home and not be within the buffer, they should be required to build the smaller home, Brock said. This would not stop them from obtaining a variance, it just wouldnt go through the easier process, he said. Commissioner Randy Merritt didnt want to include a size limit, but wanted to keep it simple. Brock said the purpose of the amendment was to save staff time and the cost of advertising. However, resident Vic Lambou wondered where the time saving came into play, when staff will still be spending time on granting variances. He also said it would cut out citizen input because the applications would not be required to come before the planning commission or county commission. The commission voted four to one, with Lynn Artz opposing, to direct staff and the county attorney to develop the amendment to bring back before the commission. In other news: € The commission voted unanimously to schedule a public hearing for an ordinance allowing the commission to grant economic development ad valorem tax exemptions. These exemptions would apply to new businesses and the expansion of existing businesses. If approved by the commission, it would then need to be approved by the voters in November. Artz suggested the commission prioritize areas where it has said it would like to see development, such as in the Crawfordville town center. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the whole point of the ordinance is that it is countywide and did not want to narrow it to the town center. Artz said she did not want to restrict it to that area, but said there could be different criteria for those who choose to build in that area. To further encourage development where we said we want it,Ž Artz said. But once again, Artz suggestions incorporating the Crawfordville Town Plan were met with opposition and lacked support from the rest of the commission. Exemptions may be granted for up to 100 percent of the assessed value of all improvements to real property made for the use of a qualifying new business and of all tangible personal property of such new business, or up to 100 percent of the assessed value of all added improvements to real property made to facilitate the qualifying expansion of an existing business. Property acquired to replace existing property will not be considered to facilitate a business expansion. The commission voted unanimously to schedule a public hearing. € The commission voted to approve the design guidelines of the Wakulla County Bicycle, Pedestrian and Blueways Master Plan. Included in the plan is to connect Crawfordville out to the network, said county consultant, Jon Sewell of Kimley-Horn and Associates. Some of the key components are sidewalks around the Wakulla County Senior Center to Crawfordville and safe routes to Crawfordville Elementary School, COAST Charter School and Wakulla Middle School. Safe pathways and trails to connect with parks and recreational facilities are identified in the plan, as well as interconnectivity with schools, parks and recreation, the St. Marks Trail and potential amenities such as the GF&A and Capital City to the Sea Loop trails are all addressed in the plan. There are also several pathways for canoeing and kayaking included. The plan lists the projects, as well as potential funding sources. There are also design guidelines for sidewalks and signs. € In planning and zoning items, the commission voted unanimously to approve the change of zoning from agricultural and rural residential to planned unit development, as well as the application for the preliminary plat to construct the Scenic Stream subdivision on the north side of Zion Hill Road. This subdivision will include 43 single family lots and 102 single family or multi-family units and 37 acres donated to the Wakulla County Historical Society for its Heritage Village Park. Developer Ben Boynton said this all started in December when he heard the historical society was looking for land for its 10 historic homes that were donated by Wakulla County families, the old Smith Creek school house and the old lunch room from Crawfordville to create the park. Im very excited that were able to do this,Ž Boynton said. The historical society can now begin to make plans for the park, he said.COUNTY COMMISSIONVariance to wetlands ordinance for older lots proposedHardship assistance deadline extendedBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanewsnet.Those who missed the original deadline to apply for hardship assistance for the countys solid waste assessment and “ re MSBU now have until Aug. 15 to do so. The deadline was June 1, but the Wakulla County Commission decided to extend the deadline after hearing from a few residents who said they did not know when the deadline was. Out of eight people who applied late, four would have qualified, Commissioner Lynn Artz said. The solid waste assessment is $196 a year for a dwelling unit. The cost of the “ re MSBU for residential homeowners is $75 a year, for non-residential it is 6 cents per square foot, for land it is 17 cents per acre. These assessments are added to the property owners tax bill. To qualify for hardship assistance, a family of two must make less than $23,950. For one person that income level is $20,950. For three people it is $26,950. Four-person household is $29,900, “ veperson is $32,300, six-person us $34,700, seven-person is $37,100 and eight-person is $39,500. Artz said the county also needs to look at better ways of notifying homeowners of the deadline. She suggested working with Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman to include a reminder of the deadline in notices his of“ ce sends. In order to apply for hardship assistance, property owners must complete the application and file with the County Administrators Of“ ce for consideration by Aug. 15. The applicant must provide substantive documentation of gross income of all occupants 18 years of age and older.Contact the County Administration Of“ ce at 9260919 for more information.

JAMES L SNYDER I just celebrated another birthday, which got me to thinking about the good old days.Ž You can usually tell how old a person is by how many times they refer to the good old days,Ž or the phrase, when I was a youngster.Ž I have come to the conclusion that getting old is not something to be ashamed of in the least. A person reaches a certain age simply because they have not died yet, which is nothing to make a person feel guilty. Although I do not think too much of birthdays, I intend to have as many as possible. Dont get me wrong. I am ready to go when my time is up, but, in the meantime, I am going to enjoy life. My recent birthday got me thinking about the good old daysŽ of my youth. Memory is a funny thing. For the most part, we remember the good of our youth and rarely the bad. I often hear some old geezer say, I wish I were 16 again.Ž If their memory was serving them correctly, 16 was not a very good year for any of us. I am glad I have gotten beyond my 16th birthday. As I remember it, it was a terrible year. I can honestly say that the best years of my life are the ones I am living now. Sure, I have some regrets. I have done things I probably should not have done, and I did not do some things I probably should have. If I had to live my life over again not only will I make the same mistakes but also I probably would add to the list quite signi“ cantly. I do not want to live my life over again. Once is enough for me, thank you. But as I was thinking of those good old days,Ž I could not help but think what I was thinking about back then. It went something like this. When I was in school sitting in Ms. Ammons class, I was daydreaming about going “ shing. All I could think about was what kind of “ sh were biting out by the lake this afternoon. Ms. Ammon would call upon me and I would have no idea what she was talking about. In my mind, I was “ shing. In my body, I was suffering under classititis. It is what students, especially boys, get when they are bored with the class they are in at the time. It involves a lot of jittering. Where was your mind?Ž Ms. Ammon would ask. I hope you werent “ shing, now, were you?Ž One thing about good ol Ms. Ammon, she could read a boys mind like a book. Maybe because there are so many blank pages in a young boys mind. I would suffer through counting down the hours and minutes and seconds until the school day would end. You did not hear it from me, and this is not a confession, but on those rare occasions when I would skip school and go “ shing, I had another problem. I was where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do, but then as I threw out the line waiting for a bite all I could think of was what was happening back in school I was missing. I often wondered if Ms. Ammon was missing me. I would smile and then the “ sh would bite and my attention would be on the task at hand. It was not long before my mind would wander back to the classroom. What were they doing? What was I missing? For the life of me, I cannot understand why, but I could never enjoy “ shing and when I was playing hooky from school for thinking about what I was missing back in school. One of the advantages of getting older is developing a sense of maturity. Dont ask me to de“ ne maturity, because I am not quite sure what it really means. As a person matures, he begins to learn how to enjoy the moment. This, I say, comes with age. A lot of age in some instances. By the time you learn to enjoy the moment, it is gone. I have come a long way from good ole Ms. Ammons classroom. I will not tell you how many years it has been, lets just say a lot. I still “ nd myself doing the same thing. I am in the middle of doing one thing and I begin thinking of what I could be doing. I could be home reading a book. Then when I go home and begin reading, I think about what I could be doing in the of“ ce. I have tried to take a day off for many years. I just cannot seem to manage it. I take a day off and think of what I really could be doing if I was working. When I am working, I think of how much fun I could have if I was taking the day off. I hope to live long enough to be able to bring these two opposites together in some magni“ cent activity. I have not gotten there yet. I am aspiring, to be sure. David was right. This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in itŽ (Psalms 118:24 KJV). The only thing I need to do today is to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.Rev.

Special to The NewsThe Wakulla United Methodist Church announced the arrival of their new minister, Pastor Sandra SusieŽ Horner in July. Pastor Horner says she is a true FloridianŽ having been born and raised in Florida. She graduated from Fort Walton Beach High School and Stetson University with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance. It was 10 years ago that God placed a call on my life,Ž said Pastor Horner. Though surprised, Pastor Horner said she began to see that God could make use of what she had made of her life, both the good and the bad.Ž After learning of my appointment to Wakulla UMC, I was humbled to see the history of the church,Ž said Pastor Horner. From its birth until today there is strength of faith and love for the church from the congregation that is amazing. It is my prayer that we can continue to honor its rich history by continuing to live into our faith, continue to reach out to our community and grow Gods Kingdom.Ž According to the church history written by Bruce Nesmith Alford, The church is one of the oldest in the area having been established in the 1800s. In the early 1800s the eastern section of Wakulla County was a very busy place. St. Marks and Newport were large shipping ports with Newport being the county seat. There were many large communities in this area up until the war between the States.Ž How blessed we are to have as our new Pastor, Sandra SusieŽ Horner,Ž said Church Administrative Council Member and Treasurer Clem Bunker. We are already experiencing so much happy and Christ“ lled energy and love in her ministry to us.Ž The WUMC has two services each Sunday: a contemporary Service at 8:30 a.m. and a Traditional Service at 11 a.m. The youth meet at 6 p.m. each Sunday. The church is located at 1584 Old Woodville Highway in Wakulla Station.

Memorial for Louise Graddick Eleanor Louise Reddick Braren Graddick, a child of God, went to be with the Lord on June 29, 2012. Louise was a Christian of the Lutheran faith. She was the mother of Ralph, Elma, Buddy and J.B. and “Louise, if you please” to many. This is a letter in memory of my mother, who has been gone from us for almost a month. I do not know where to send it, so I will post it here and hope that she will know the burden in my heart because of losing her and how much I love her. Mother, you would ask me often if you were a good mother. I would tell you that you are the best, but could never understand why you did not know it. Your loyalty never wavered. You felt love and loyalty to some, but were cast aside and betrayed and abandoned. Still, your loyalty never wavered. You defended and never blamed. In your younger years, you knew much happiness. Later in life, you knew much hardship and sadness, yet you never complained. Instead, you found beauty everywhere, in a weed with a flower at the top, a leaf fallen from a tree in the fall, a wildflower blooming beside the road, a Cardinal splashing in your birdbath, the blue sky, a white puffy cloud, a baby, a child, “your” beautiful Wakulla River, and the beauty of your azaleas when they were in bloom. Just a week before you left us, you asked me not to abandon you. I told you I never would. On your last day here on earth, just hours after I told you goodnight and you blew kisses to Gene, you left us. I did not know it was time for you to go. I would have stayed and held you in my arms until the Lord came to receive you in his arms and take you home. You wanted family members to be with you. Now you are with our dear family members who have gone before us. I know you are home now and you had to be absent from your body to be with the Lord. Now you are the beautiful memory of my mother, wh ich I will never lose. The life you lived and the love you gave will always be with me. With undying love, Your daughter, Elma With love and gratitude for all you gave to us, from your children, Gene and Elma Cutchin, Buddy and Dianne Braren and J.B. Blanchet.

Tucker Life-Health Insurance, Inc.RATED A+ BY BETTER BUSINESS BUREAUTOP QUALITY COMPANYMEDICARE PLANSExcellent Coverage Anyone Can Afford Ross E. Tucker, Agent Since 1981Chartered Life Underwriter Registered Health Underwrighter850926-2200www.tuckerlifehealth.com By IVANHOE CARROLLAnimal Control DirectorThe shelter for Wakulla Animal Control takes in all animals … none are turned away. On Friday afternoon when leaving the shelter at 7 p.m. after an exhausting day, there were 10 5-week-old puppies in the after-hours on-site kennel. All black … the hardest color to find homes for since they are so many of them and they are hard to photograph. On Tuesday morning, when we rolled in at 6:30 a.m. there were 20 puppies (16 black and four chocolate) in and around the kennel and three cats. They were so small they could squeeze under the kennel gate. Then two hours later there were two more dogs. This on top of the already full shelter with 40 dogs and 12 cats. The drop boxŽ serves a place for the public to drop off foundŽ animals and serves as an anonymous avenue for owners to surrender whatever animals they no longer want. Mostly they are dogs and cats but we have received birds, pigs and chickens to name a few. There is a binder with an information sheet that the person can “ ll out for us. The more information we know about the animal, the better the chances are of “ nding the owner or “ nding another home. Sadly, the public thinks that they are ful“ lling their responsibility by just dropping them off and the Animal Shelter will simply “ nd them a new home. That is not the case. The unwanted pet population is a big problem in this county and all across the state and the nation. There is a solution, and it is pretty simple. Spay and neuter your animals and you will not contribute to the problem. CHAT of Wakulla handles adoptions for unwanted animals and most of the animals we have for adoption come from Animal Control. This morning we were able to take 10 of the puppies that were dropped off, however, that hardly makes a dent into the problem that Animal Control is facing. At this time, CHAT has a spay/neuter grant for dogs 40 pounds and over. Every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. somebody at the Adoption Center can issue you a free spay/neuter voucher. You even have a choice of veterinary clinics. VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital, Crawfordville Animal Hospital and Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital are participating with this program. The only thing you need is a driver license and your animal has to get a rabies shot at your expense. So, please help us by having your animals spayed/neutered because not all of the puppies that were dropped off will “ nd a home. If you have to drop off an animal to the shelter there is a better way: First, call the shelter and speak with an of“ cer. If we have the details and can arrange to get photos then we may “ nd them a rescue home before they enter the shelter. The shelter is a scary place for any animal. It is cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The new animals are severely stressed as the shelter is loud and smells like 50 different animals. There are few comforts: clean water, ample food and shelter from the elements. There are some luxuries like a soft donated blanket. High stress, an old shelter with cracks in the ” oor plus all types of contagious diseases results in a hard job to keep our animals healthy. Next, if you have to leave an animal in the drop box, please leave as much information as possible. At a minimum, we need your name and contact information, breed of animal and location found. If you are leaving your own animal, your signature is required or your animal will be treated as a stray and have to be held for the 5-day hold period. In any shelter, space is premium. New animals come in hourly and there is a limited amount of space. The harsh reality is not all animals make it to rescue or find new homes. Animals that are sick, severely injured, too young, too old or have bad behavior issues are humanely euthanized. The saddest part of our job is when a healthy animal is put to sleep only because we cant “ nd it a place to go. We work hard with 30 different rescue groups and are proud that our euthanasia rate is around 45 percent. With the help of volunteers and a super, hard-working staff we are whittling that percentage even lower. The rate for the shelter only 5 years ago was almost 70 percent. Lastly, help us help the animals. Volunteer, donate, foster. Everyone can do something. Call me at (850) 926-0902 or email at icarroll@mywakulla.com and we can discuss how to get you started on helping the unwanted animals of our county. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO IS SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PET.

FAITH HUGHESVolunteer Medical Director, CHAT of WakullaGizmo was just a scrawny, little, fuzzy, brownish dog. I couldnt even decide what breeds of dog might have come together to produce this little guy. And he faced an uncertain future in October of 2011. Gizmo was homeless and at the CHAT shelter hoping to be adopted. One Sunday morning he was in the fenced play area at CHAT, when the barking of the big dogs scared him so bad that he tried to run away. Unfortunately, the sharp edges at the bottom of the chain link fence caught his skin and tore it in two difference places over his chest. This was the beginning of several surgeries, lots of tests, tons of medications, and the months of hospitalization it took to get Gizmo ready for adoption. He developed severe infections, lost a lot of skin, had reconstructive surgery, had recurring fevers and drainage from his lymph nodes. By Mid-January, all the doctors and technicians at VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital had tried every medication, run every test we could think of, even called specialists for their opinions. Then, to make matters worse, Gizmo was playing in the fenced yard at VCA and he broke his front leg. So now he had a splint, too. Then something short of a miracle happened. Shirley Yates called me about Gizmo. She had read about him in another Tail Wagger article and was interested in fostering him. She and her husband, Randy, even offered to take him to the University of Florida Small Animal Teaching Hospital for a consult. Gizmos luck was changing! And he gets to stay at the Yates home instead of at the animal hospital. In February, the Yates took Gizmo to UF for more tests. The “ nal verdict was that all of the fevers and drainage were a reaction to the sutures that were used under the skin. The very thing that was needed to “ x his wounds caused all of these problems. So now, all we had to do was wait for the sutures to absorb naturally. In April 2011, the broken leg had healed, the fevers were gone. The drainage was lessening. But best of all, Gizmo was adopted by Shirley and Randy. Gizmos theme went from, If it werent for bad luck, Id have no luck at allŽ to I will survive!Ž He even got to go to the Rocky Mountains this summer with his new family. I want to thank the multitudes of people who came together to give this scrawny, little, fuzzy brown dog a chance to live. The folks at CHAT who provided him a home when nobody else wanted him. The doctors and staff who work with me at VCA Wakulla Animal Hospitalƒall of his care was provided for free or just the cost of medications. The many people who donated money to offset the bill from UF Vet School. And most of allƒ. thank you to Shirley and Randy Yates.

Other districts that saw their marks go up were Collier, Desoto, Gadsden, Hillsborough, Okeechobee, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco and Union. The grade changes are the latest in a series of problems that have roiled the states school accountability system in recent months. Because of the inclusion of students with disabilities and English language learners, the State Board of Education approved a policy keeping all schools from dropping more than a letter grade. The FCAT itself was snared in a crisis when passing scores on the writing test collapsed from 81 percent to 27 percent for fourth graders and showed similar drops in eighth and 10th grades. The board eventually met in emergency session to lower the passing grade from 4.0 to 3.0 while they develop a long-term answer. And in June, the Florida School Boards Association approved a scathing resolution about the states testing regimen, saying the overemphasis on standardized testing has resulted in a variety of unintended consequences that diminish the quality of the educational program, including sti” ing student engagement, narrowing the curriculum, reducing student access to elective and other desired courses, and impeding the recruitment and retention of excellent teachers and administrators.ŽState revises school grades upwardsSpecial to The NewsWorld Experience is looking for three loving, caring families to host Foreign Exchange students for the upcoming school semester or school year.

Ginny Bean, mother of three and publisher of Ginnys catalog, suggests families take advantage of this clean slate by establishing some new organizing routines. Here are some of the top tips: € Consider handling as many daytime preparations as possible the night before. Lay out clothes. Pack lunches. Set out the breakfast dishes and cereal. Pack backpacks. € Make a habit of sorting through childrens backpacks with them the same day they come home. Allot time after school, when you arrive home from work, or after dinner, depending on your familys schedule. € Create a communication hub. Include the family calendar, a chalk or bulletin board for posting messages and reminders, a binder for key documents, colored markers, pens and pencils. If youre a visual person, consider color coding your calendar by assigning each family member a different color. € Remember not to forget. Use wall hooks and baskets or bins near the front door to corral the items you need to remember each day: backpacks, books, lunches, gym shoes, sports equipment and musical instruments.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBe aware of pit vipers after the oodWell, talk about raining frogs! Turned out I was visiting a friend when Tropical Storm Debby hit our lovely Wakulla County a few weeks ago and dumped over two feet of rain! So it turned out I failed to experience the deluge. By now the rivers, like the Sopchoppy, have returned basically to their normal level and many of the roadside ditches and other low areas that were also ” ooded have pretty much had their downpours soaked up by our rather sandy soil. Took us all by surprise, for as you recall the Weather Channel had her path projected to be headed toward New Orleans-Lower Mississippi, but by the time this rain-maker wandered in the opposite direction, it had already soaked our Big Bend. Then all hell broke loose with another foot or more of H2O. Many of you, now that the water is receding, are in the process of tidying up your yard and structures that were ” ooded, which is very likely a mess of mud and organic debris, as well as rearranged possessions that ” oated off shelves, etc. May I suggest you watch out for snakes! Ive been in cypress ponds during extra dry periods, where cottonmouth moccasins (which had left nearby ponds that were drying up) had crawled to the only pond around that still had any water, and in a pond no bigger than the average size home there were hundreds. I am NOT exaggerating. In the dry time if you walked around this pond you might see about a dozen. But about dusk out came the others from hollow cypress logs/ knees, etc. to feed on the trapped “ sh and frogs in the remaining water. They were about every 2-3 feet as we moved along. When collecting for zoos with our headlights at night we had to be extremely cautious. Yet, when tropical rains move in, these vipers and many other species of snakes move out -some possibly even into your yard. Our largest North American venomous snake, the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake (which has on very rare occasions reached up to eight feet in length, and as big around as a humans leg) is one of them. Then there is the Dusky Pygmy Rattler, rarely reaching over two feet, that when coiled in a circle could be covered with a coffee cup. Ive had experiences with three cottonmouths that were “ ve feet long but that is very rare … most are from about 15 inches to two feet. All these are true pit vipers,Ž that is they have a heat detecting pit on each side of their triangular head between the nostril and the eye. The pit distinguishes them from all the harmless snakes in our country.Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHFourteen-year-old Blake Sandifer Campbell of Anderson, S.C., spent a week visiting his grandfather, Larry Harmon, retired manager of Osceola Plantation in Thomasville, Ga. Blake had never been on a real saltwater “ shing trip and Larry wanted to show him a good time. Major Alan Lamarche of Plantation Security took Blake and Larry out for a few hours of near-shore light tackle “ shing in Apalachee Bay. Blake caught and released about 50 sea bass. He also caught ” ounder, shark and almost caught a cobia. Greater amberjack will open for recreational harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1. The season closes annually June 1. The minimum size limit for greater amberjack in Gulf of Mexico waters is 30 inches fork length, which is measured from the tip of the “ shs closed mouth to the center of the fork in the tail. In Atlantic state waters, the size limit is 28 inches fork length. Recreational anglers may take one “ sh per person, per day. Reef “ sh gear rules apply. In Gulf waters, this means anglers must use circle hooks and have a dehooking device and a venting tool on their vessel. These tools increase a “ shs chance of survival if it is caught and returned to the water. Learn more about greater amberjack by visiting MyFWC.com/Fishing.Greater amberjack season opens Aug. 1SPECIAL TO THE NEWSFirst “ shing trip Special to The NewsIts the time of the year when children are outside playing and the grill is always sizzling with delicious summer fare. While its nice to be outdoors enjoying the warm weather, its not fun getting stung by one of the seasons most notorious party crashers … “ re ants, wasps, mosquitoes, yellow jackets and hornets. Stinging insects send more than half a million people to the emergency room every year,Ž said Arrow Pest Expert Shay Runion. We have put together a list of the top “ ve stinging insects likely to be encountered in our area and encourage homeowners to learn more about these potentially dangerous pests.Ž 1. Wasps: Wasps are the most aggressive of the summer stinging insects. They are unique in that they do not need to be provoked to show their aggression, often attacking humans for no apparent reason. 2. Yellow Jackets: Yellow jackets typically create their nests in the ground, attics or basements and a fully developed nest can contain hundreds to thousands of adult yellow jackets. If their nest is disturbed, these insects will vigorously pursue the intruder. 3. Red Imported Fire Ants: Look for fire ants in their signature tall mounds found in landscaped areas, yards or around the foundation of a home. Similar to wasps and yellow jackets, “ re ants will attack stinging multiple times if their nest is disturbed. 4. Mosquitoes: One of summers most notorious pests, mosquitoes got an early start this year due to the unseasonably mild winter experienced in our area. It only takes mosquitoes 10 to 14 days to develop from an egg into an adult and they will travel up to 14 miles in search of a meal. 5. Hornets: Like wasps, yellow jackets and “ re ants, hornets are social stinging insects and present a greater threat because they attack in large numbers if they perceive their nest is danger. Hornets most often construct their nests inside hollow tree trunks or buildings but can also build them in the ground or aerial locations. Homeowners should follow these easy steps to prevent stinging insects from ruining their summer fun: € Many stinging insects are attracted to sweets so serve sugary drinks in covered pitchers and keep desserts in sealed containers. € Make sure all outdoor trash cans have a secure lid €Remove sources of standing water, such as old tires, childrens wading pools, birdbaths and saucers of flowerpots. € Cut back or get rid of unnecessary vegetation around the home. € Seal all cracks around the foundation of the home and ensure all screens are in good repair. € If an infestation is suspected, homeowners should contact a licensed pest professional to remove the insects from the property.Don’t let insects ruin summer fun the EATIN’ path… OFF Your Guide to Area Restaurants and Catering Lassie WilliamsJune 2012 Winner Her name was drawn from I am so appreciative of being the recipient of this nice little gift I so enjoy eating out in Wakulla and I love reading The Wakulla News.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 – Page 11AOn 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 no. 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! Next week, Navigation Rule no. 8 … steps to take to avoid a collision.

BAY COUNTY Lt. Jay Chesser and Of“ cer Nick Price responded around midnight to a call from a female who reported her apparently drunk husband had her three children in a boat on the water somewhere between the Hathaway and Bailey Bridges. The children were calling and texting her for help. Lt. Chesser went to the boat ramp and met with the distraught mother while Officer Price went on vessel patrol. Shortly afterward, the boat arrived at the ramp and three very relieved children were offloaded. The operator refused to perform field sobriety tasks and was arrested for BUI. He was taken to the Bay County Jail where a sample of his breath yielded results of .307/.304. The subject was booked into the jail. € Of“ cers Steve Wicker, Lane Kinney, and Jim Moore responded to a call from the U.S. Coast Guard regarding a boat that was adrift with its engine running and the operator passed out. The operator had been drinking and was taking prescription drugs. The operator failed the “ eld sobriety tasks and a subsequent breath test yielded results of .128/.115. The operator was booked into the Bay County Jail for operating a vessel while impaired. € Of“ cers Jim Moore, Lane Kinney, and Steve Wicker were on water patrol when they stopped a vessel whose operator displayed signs of impairment. The operator had been drinking and was taking a prescription drug. The suspect failed field sobriety tasks. Investigator Nelson arrived to take the vessel back to the dock as all the occupants had been drinking. The operator refused to submit to a breath sample and was booked into the Bay County Jail for operating a vessel while impaired. € Of“ cer Dennis Palmer made a signi“ cant break in a case that he and Of“ cer Nick Price had been working. Several weeks earlier, a baited gator hook had been located on Deer Point Lake, which began the investigation. This week a tip led Officer Palmer back to the area where an elderly woman was acting as a lookoutŽ and alerted several individuals who ” ed into the woods upon his arrival. Located nearby was an 11-foot long alligator, attached to an all terrain vehicle. Evidence indicated the alligator was being butchered at the time of Of“ cer Palmers arrival. Of“ cer Nick Price arrived shortly afterward and one subject was located in the woods. Lt. Dennis Welsh and K-9 Of“ cer Mike Guy arrived and the process of interviewing the witnesses and processing evidence began. The case is ongoing and arrests are forthcoming. JACKSON COUNTY After midnight while on water patrol on the Apalachicola River, Of“ cer Hank Forehand observed subjects using lights and gigging for “ sh on the shallow ” ats. After watching the subjects for some time, Of“ cer Forehand followed them back to the boat ramp where he made contact and conducted a “ sheries inspection. The subjects were found in possession of freshly gigged speckled perch and black bass, one of which the subjects attempted to conceal under the bow of their vessel. Citations were issued for taking freshwater game “ sh by unlawful method. LIBERTY COUNTY Lt. Harry Parker and Of“ cer Lane Bentley concluded an investigation that began on June 8, when a doe deer was shot and discarded near the Highway 20 Bridge. Two witnesses near the scene gave a general description of the vehicle and driver involved. After checking several vehicles resembling the suspect truck, the of“ cers received information that the suspects lived in a neighboring county. Lieutenant Parker and Of“ cer Bentley located the suspects and conducted interviews. Both subjects furnished written statements and were charged with possession of illegal deer. GADSDEN COUNTY Of“ cer Benjamin Johnson cited a Washington County man near the Jim Woodruff Dam for taking game fish by an illegal method. The subject was observed taking freshwater bream with a cast net.FWC Law Enforcement operations Bones! In April I spoke of the Wakulla Springs Conveyor Belt that may be responsible for the deposition of bones in the front of the Springs cave. But what of its reported pristine (undisturbed) nature? I visited Tracy Revels fascinating book, Watery Eden: A History of Wakulla SpringsŽ (2002, Published by the Friends of Wakulla) in my preparation for a survey of local bone rooms. Chapter 6 is a good read regarding the history of Wakulla Springs bone deposits. Following the suppression and removal of the Seminole Indians in 1840, visitors discovered large bones in the basin at Wakulla Springs. A report in 1850 by Sarah Smith attracted the attention of Professor George King of Newport, who began to remove bones in the Springs shallow waters using long handled tongs. All of his samples taken during this time period have subsequently been lost. Over the next 90 years bones were removed from the Spring and put on display in Tallahassee and elsewhere. In 1930 George Christie, then owner of Wakulla Springs, renewed recovery after uncovering bones while constructing the new swim area. He enlisted the help of the Florida Geological Survey to systematically recover the remainder of the bones of the basin. Tongs were not effective for the deeper bones, so they expanded their collecting options to include hard-hat diving, supported from a surface barge. They pried the bones from the substrate, sucking out surrounding embedded debris. All provenience (relational information to other bones and debris) was, of course, lost. George then sent these fossils around North Florida to promote his proposed resort. Ed Ball, residing in Jacksonville, may have become aware of the spring that he later purchased from a display of these fossil bones. Enough bones were pulled during this period to reconstruct a near complete Mastodon skeleton. It was “ rst displayed at the FGS lab, then the Florida State College for Women in 1940 and “ nally, where it currently resides, Florida Museum of History in the R.A. Gray Building. Many of the remaining bones collected have shown up in unexpected places including park ” ower beds and strategically located in the basin to permit visitors riding the glass bottom boat, full view of what must have caused the earliest enthusiastic bone removal. Once purchased by Mr. Ball, the caves were restricted for safety reasons until the mid-1950s. In 1955 Gary Salsman and others working on a “ lm set were given permission to dive the main vent of Wakulla Spring. For the next three years, and with the assistance of Stan Olsen from FGS, these divers pulled bones and artifacts from the Bone Room. This early team recovered mastodon, mammoth, deer, camel, giant ground sloth, bear and a large number of bone tipped spear points, often ” oating them out using air-“ lled pillow cases. They reached a depth of 240 feet and over 900 feet into the cave. Frank Fagan ended the bone recovery in 1961. Engineer Wally Jenkins (of the 1955 team) and scientist Larry Brill continued diving the cave for the next 30 years, until it was purchased by the State of Florida, in an effort to understand the hydrology of the Spring. These two introduced me to Wakulla Springs in 1975. The age of cave exploration has since dominated Wakulla Spring, with dozens of divers passing over what is left in the bone room. Northwest Water Managements current meter that we set in the 1980s remains near the restriction of the room. Guide lines are now tied to massive bones placed on rocks jutting out into the void of large cave passage. An inverted water trough is set into the ceiling. Discarded water sampling tubing, pipes, cables and stage cylinders dot the landscape. The bone room was recently described as looking more like a lunar landing site than a pristine preserve.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Stewart wanted to see the airport remain a grass strip and not be paved, but did want to see it brought up to the Florida Department of Transportation standards. Commissioners Lynn Artz, Alan Brock and Merritt wanted the airport back in compliance and if paving can be paid for through grant funding, they were in support of that as well. One of the major safety concerns is the building and hangar that encroach the safety zone. The building that now houses La Cantina Grille is 50 feet within the primary surface area, which is the area surrounding the landing area. Since the county does not own that building, it cannot remove it, so a shift of the runway is necessary. There is also a 13-acre hangar parcel that has one hangar that was constructed in 2006 too close to the primary surface area. In order to have its license extended the runway must be moved over about 35 feet to the west and widened. The runway length would be extended from 2,800 feet to 2,972 feet. Weve got to do something,Ž Stewart said. Weve got to get off the fence post.Ž In order to move the runway, the county will have to acquire property to the west. Originally included in the Airport Layout Plan was some property south of Surf Road. Some of the land acuqisitions were met with oppositions, so these have been removed from the Airport Layout Plan. No property will be acquired without approval from the homeowner, said Airport Manager Steve Fults. Im not willing to take anybodys property,Ž Merritt said. But if someone wants to sell their property and DOT is willing to buy it, then it should move forward. The county has received a grant for $75,000, that does not require a match, and was intended to be used originally on runway lighting, however, the money would now be used on property appraisals, update the airport layout plan if needed and peform an environmental impact study. If there is any money left over, it will be used to purchase property. Stewart was concerned about possible requirements or stipulations from DOT that may come after the county accepts the grant funding. Several residents also expressed concern over county expenses at the airport increasing once the grant money is accepted and the taxpayers having to foot the bill. The operation costs are a drain on county resources,Ž Mills said. With taking all this money comes a great liability.Ž County Administrator David Edwards said the one stipulation with the grant from DOT is that the airport must remain operational for 20 years. Stan Brown, who was against the airport improvements, said, You have been courting that airport for years. Now youre going to decide whether you want to marry it.Ž Commissioner Jerry Moore, the sole commissioner who said he was not in favor of improving the airport, said he did not feel comfortable agreeing to the grant because DOT could come back with new requirements, costing the county money. I dont trust the government,Ž Moore said. Edwards said DOT is actually shrinking down regulations, he said. Plus, the county airport will never be a major airport and have jet planes. It will be what it will be,Ž Edwards said. Those in favor of the improvements have said that the airport can be self-sustaining with the use of DOT grant funding and could make money. The fees charged to use the airport will be used to maintain the airport, Edwards said. And the county will make a point to do a better job of collecting those fees, he said. The current budget for the airport is $4,000 and $6,000 has been budgeted for the upcoming “ scal year, Edwards said. The future plans for the airport could include the addition of several hangars and a service fuel farm, which would bring extra revenue, said John Russell, the former airport manager. Those in opposition pointed out the Apalachicola Municipal Airport, which has accepted $7 million in grant funding since 2006 and has seen a large increase in expenses. In 2010-11, the airport “ nally broke even, Brown said. Fults said there was no comparison between the Apalachicola airport and the Wakulla County Airport. Its apples and orangutans,Ž Fults said. Fults pointed out that the Quincy Municipal Airport was more of a realistic comparison. Janice Watson, with the Quincy airport, said they spent grant money updating the airport and expenses have increased, but the airport is sustaining. Their revenue comes from fuel and hangars. Watson said they have 60 hangars and 25 people are on the wait list. They are adding 12 more hangars soon. Some concerns were also expressed about the flight path once the runway is moved, but if an airplane was or was not ” ying over someones property now, 35 feet wont change it. Thirty-“ ve feet doesnt make a hill of beans,Ž Edwards said. Currently, the airport covers 13.16 acres and contains a northsouth turf runway, with no taxiways or ramp space, as well as no public facilities for parking. The county was given the airport in the 60s by Fenton Jones under the condition that it remain an airport. The Tarpine Fly-in community was developed in the mid80s and the residents have been taking care of the maintenance. They established a Wakulla County Airport Association in 2001. An airport advisory committee was created this year to help manage the airport. This committee will not make decisions, but will offer recommendations to the county commission. No formal decision was made about the future of the airport at the workshop, but it was clear there would be enough votes from commissioners to go ahead with the improvements. Edwards and his staff are coming up with an action plan and plans to “ nd out if any strings, besides the 20-year operational agreement, are attached to the grant funding.Sides square o over airportBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 18 … The payoff may be years away, but Florida stakeholders are already coordinating efforts to make sure the state gets its share of BP oil spill compensation in what could be the largest Gulf restoration effort in history. Two weeks after President Barack Obama signed the RESTORE Act into law, organizations that are traditional opponents of each other are working toward the same goal of securing billions of dollars from the company for damage done by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which sent nearly 4 million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf. It was the worst such spill in U.S. history. Calling it an unprecedented opportunity to use private money for public good, environmental supporters say it should be used to restore and purchase strategic parcels of environmentally sensitive lands from willing sellers in the Big Bend and along the eight-county region most severely impacted by the spill. We have an opportunity to do some of the large-scale projects that have been put off by the tight budget,Ž said Preston Robertson, vice president and general counsel for the Florida Wildlife Federation. This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to protect these coastal ecosystems.Ž Business groups, meanwhile, say project selection should also be based on how it plays into regional efforts to bolster the economic viability of the region, by shoring up commercial “ shing, tourism and other coastal industries. The tourism and hospitality industry is the driving force in Floridas economy and it was tremendously compromised after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill,Ž said Carol Dover, president and CEO of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. Signed into law July 6, the RESTORE Act earmarks 80 percent of penalties paid by BP under the Clean Water Act to establish a trust fund to support restoration programs in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida and Texas, the “ ve coastal states affected by the spill. The company could be on the hook for up to $21 billion in penalties and “ nes. Of“ cials estimate revenues ” owing into the RESTORE trust fund at between$4 billion and $16.8 billion. The plan calls for taking 35 percent of the trust fund and divvying it up equally between the “ ve states. Additional funds will be dispersed based on proposals to restore ecosystems, fisheries, marine and wildlife habitats, beaches, barrier islands, dunes and coastal wetlands. Panhandle of“ cials say now that the agreement has been signed, they will begin setting up review processes to evaluate programs and provide the justi“ cations needed to compete successfully for limited funds. Each of the counties has to come up with a multi-year plan to address restoration,Ž said Lane Lynchard, Santa Rosa County Commissioner. That is going to require a lot of public input. We starting the process now of setting up a board to review that input.Ž Business groups have been organizing since the spill to secure state money and help local businesses and workers access it through the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. They hope to build on that cooperation and expand efforts to rejuvenate the economy, which is so closely tied to the health of the Gulf. Speci“ c projects ready to go include expanding the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla County and habitat improvements in Apalachicola Bay. We have been meeting with our partners in Florida to lay out a list of projects that we think are tied into Gulf restoration,Ž Robertson said.Groups ready for BP money ght 2012-2013 BUDGET SUMMARY DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD OF WAKULLA COUNTY THE PROPOSED OPERATING BUDGET EXPENDIT URES OF THE SCHOOL BOARD OF WAKULLA COUNTY ARE 0.6% MORE THAN LAST YEAR'S TOTAL OPERATING EXPENDITURES REQUIRED LOCAL EFFORT (including Prior5.4380BASIC DISCRETIONARY OPERATING0.7480 Period Adjustment Millage)DISCRETIONARY CRITICAL NEEDS-OPERATING0.2500 BASIC DISCRETIONARY CAPITAL OUTLAY1.5000DEBT SERVICE (VOTED)0.5500 TOTAL MILLAGE 8.4860SPECIALDEBTCAPITALENTERPRISE Revenues GENERALREVENUESERVICEPROJECTSFUNDSFederal593,442.004,505,794.77 State Sources25,297,047.0024,057.00129,850.00314,731.00 Local Sources7,767,392.00694,612.00638,994.011,742,710.93105,450.00 TOTAL REVENUES 33,657,881.005,224,463.77768,844.012,057,441.93105,450.00 Transfers In740,725.00 Other Financing Sources FUND BALANCES (July 1, 2012) 4,425,284.00448,579.1466,176.453,305,617.1322,719.10 TOTAL REVENUES AND BALANCES 38,823,890.005,673,042.91835,020.465,363,059.06128,169.10 PROPOSED MILLAGE LEVY Expenditures Instruction20,053,392.901,907,840.30 Pupil Personnel Services1,692,101.63131,683.00 Instructional Media Services502,434.05 Instructional & Curriculum Development Services688,732.23337,603.85 Instructional Staff Tr aining154,246.00498,508.13 Instructional Related Technology268,035.5823,595.06 Board of Education595,435.53 General Administration 348,891.04300,499.00 School Administrati on2,174,391.631,400.96 Facilities Acquisition Constr uction106,352.234,622,334.06 Fiscal Services374,641.72 Food Service1,084.88 2,106,720.00 Central Services603,191.287,152.00105,450.00 Pupil Transportation Services2,590,715.029,605.00 Operation of Plant4,323,817.68 Maintenance of Plant976,057.50 Administrative Technol ogy Services164,508.37 Community Services4,081.73 Debt Services0.00779,492.50 TOTAL EXPENDITURES 35,622,111.005,324,607.30779,492.504,622,334.06105,450.00 Transfers Out 740,725.00 FUND BALANCES (June 30, 2013) 3,201,779.00348,435.6155,527.9622,719.10 TOTAL EXPENDITURES, TRANSFERS, & BALANCES 38,823,890.005,673,042.91835,020.465,363,059.06128,169.10 THE TENTATIVE, ADOPTED, AND/OR FINAL BUDGET ARE ON FILE IN THE OFFICE OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED TAXING AUTHORITY AS A PUBLIC RECOR D.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 – Page 13ABy JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 24 … An appeals court Tuesday ruled against Attorney General Pam Bondi in a long-running battle about the Legislatures attempt last year to privatize prisons across southern Florida. The 1st District Court of Appeal rejected Bondis appeal of a circuit court ruling that blocked the privatization plan from going forward. A three-judge panel ruled against Bondi on a procedural issue … saying she did not have the authority to “ le the appeal after the original state party in the case, the Department of Corrections, declined to do so. The secretary of the Department of Corrections, against whom the “ nal declaratory and injunctive judgment was actually entered (in circuit court), has not appealed, Tuesdays opinion said. Like any other non-party in the trial court, the attorney general lacks standing to initiate an appeal on her own.Ž The decision was a victory for the Florida Police Benevolent Association, which “ led the lawsuit last year after lawmakers included the privatization plan in budget “ ne print, known as proviso language.Ž Leon County Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford ruled that it was unconstitutional to use proviso language to direct the changes, which would have privatized 29 prison facilities. This ruling (Tuesday) reaf“ rmed our argument that the attorney general did not have the authority to appeal the lower courts decision, Matt Puckett, the Florida PBAs executive director, said in a prepared statement. This was never more than the Legislatures last-second attempt to privatize public prisons in South Florida.Ž A spokeswoman for Bondi said the attorney general “ led the appeal at the request of the Legislature. We respectfully disagree with the courts decision to dismiss the appeal,Ž said the spokeswoman, Jenn Meale. Regardless of the appeals-court ruling, the privatization plan was already all but dead. The proviso language expired June 30 with the end of the states 2011-12 “ scal year; lawmakers also failed in a separate attempt to pass a privatization plan during this years legislative session. In a concurring opinion Tuesday, Judge Ronald Swanson cautioned that the decision did not resolve the broader question of whether lawmakers could make such policy changes in proviso language. Also, he wrote that the decision should not be construed as a limit on Bondis power to represent the state in lawsuits. This case does not serve as a precedent to limit or curtail the power of the attorney general, Swanson wrote. It is a well-settled principle of common law --a principle embodied by statutes --that the attorney general has broad authority to represent the people of Florida. Nonetheless, the attorney general has to follow the procedural rules; something she failed to do here.Ž Bondis of“ ce represented the Department of Corrections in the circuit-court case, but the department declined to challenge Fulfords ruling. The attorney general nevertheless moved forward with the appeal, which her of“ ce said at the time was done at the request of the Legislature. Bondis of“ ce did not seek approval from the circuit court to formally intervene in the case, a move that the appeals court focused on during arguments in June. Not having moved to intervene as a party below, the attorney general lacked authority to initiate an appeal, appeals-court Chief Judge Robert T. Benton wrote for the panel. We are therefore without jurisdiction to review the trial courts judgment, and the appeal must be dismissed.ŽSpecial to The NewsST. PETERSBURG, July 24 … Progress Energy Florida, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, is urging customers be on alert for a new utility bill payment scam affecting customers across the country. Under the scam, customers are receiving a call informing them their electric service is scheduled for immediate disconnection and they should make a payment by purchasing a Green Dot PakŽ card at a local drug or convenience store. Progress Energy has received reports of customers who have been contacted about this scam in both its Carolinas and Florida service territories.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 – Page 15ACourt shortsBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA former Wakulla County Board of County Commission employee has “ led a lawsuit against the county, challenging her dismissal was the result of racial discrimination. Deanna Green was hired in July 2009 by the county as a planning technician in the Planning and Community Development Department. The lawsuit notes that she was the only black employee in her unit. In July 2011, her pay was cut, which Greens lawsuit alleges was intended to persuade her to resign her position. She did not. Shortly thereafter, she was told she was being laid off because of budget cuts and she was the last employee hired in the department. She claims she was not the last employee hired, and that her dismissal was related to her living in Midway. The county represented that she was being “ red for performance problems. The lawsuit contends Green was the victim of racial discrimination. The lawsuit was filed July 19 in Wakulla Circuit Court. Green is being represented in the lawsuit by Tallahassee attorney Marie Mattox. In other court matters: € Wakulla fishermen were back in court last week, asking that their lawsuit against the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission be allowed to move forward. Local “ shermen Ronald Fred Crum, Keith Ward, Jonas Porter and Richard Van Munster were at the Leon County Courthouse on Monday, July 16, to hear oral arguments on whether Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford should grant a motion for summary judgment for the state or allow the case to go to trial at the end of August. The “ shermen contend that FWC rules requiring two-inch stretch mesh net in seine nets violates the constitutional amendment that limited net fishing … the so-called net ban … because the small mesh catches juvenile mullet and small gamefish, none of which are legal and which die in the meshes. Attorney Ron Mowrey, who represents “ shermen, argued at the hearing that causing “ shermen to use small-mesh nets for mullet “ shing violates the purpose of the amendment, which is to stop over“ shing and waste of marine resources. Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Glogau, representing FWC, told the court that all these matters have been litigated several times since the passage of the amendment in 1994 and its implementation in 1995. Fishermen have challenged the legality of the two-inch rule and lost, repeatedly, never getting past the First District Court of Appeal. The two-inch rule was first promulgated by the Marine Fisheries Commission, the precursor of the FWC, as a means of implementing the amendment. As a means of protecting the marine resources, the amendment outlawed gill and entangling nets and limited seine and cast nets to 500 square feet. The problem is, there really wasnt a clear how to differentiate between what is a gill net or a seine net. So the MFC created a de“ nition of a gill net as a something that catches “ sh primarily by gilling, outlawed mono“ lament, and created the two-inch rule, saying mesh size larger than that is a gill net. One fact all sides agree on it, and have for years, is that all nets gill. But “ shermen claim that the smaller mesh nets gill smaller fish … especially juvenile mullet and other game“ sh in the shallows where the mullet are typically caught. They claim as much as 98 percent of what they catch is bycatch … not legal size mullet. Nets with larger mesh catch larger, legal-size mullet and allow the smaller “ sh to escape, “ shermen claim. Judge Fulford did not rule on the motion for summary judgment, but she did recently deny a motion to dismiss the case from the state, which relied on much the same grounds … that the case has already been decided in previous lawsuits. € In a criminal trial on Tuesday, July 24, Anthony Mills was found not guilty by a jury of a charge of lewd and lascivious acts on a minor. Mills got a judgment of acquittal on another charge of encouraging lewd acts by a minor. Mills, 20, was one of several young men in the back seat of a car with an underage girl who was reportedly dirty dancingŽ when law enforcement arrived on the scene. Mills was represented by Crawfordville attorney Steven Glazer. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno. € A lawsuit to foreclose on property at Shell Point known as Shell Point Sanctuary was “ led on July 5 by a group called CADC/RADC Venture 2011-1. The subject property in the lawsuit includes numerous lots in Snug Harbor. The lawsuit claims that an August 2003 note for $1 million has been defaulted on by Shell Point Sanctuary LLC. It also alleges a breach of personal guaranty by Robert Routa, William McArthur, and William T. Gaupin, who personally guaranteed the note.Special to The NewsA 40-year-old Crawfordville man faces four charges including attempted murder in connection with a physical disturbance reported at midnight Monday, July 23, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Bryan Frederick Braswell was arrested for attempted murder, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and sexual assault after a 51-year-old female victim reported being beaten by the suspect. Investigators were called to the home of the victim south of Crawfordville and discovered her on the front porch of her residence in severe pain. Deputy Nick Gray, Sgt. Ronald Mitchell and Deputy Scott Powell arrived at the home and tended to the victim along with Wakulla EMS. Deputy Powell stationed himself behind the home and discovered evidence that the suspect was hiding in a wooded area behind the home. Braswell was detained without incident. During the investigation phase, the victim reported that she came to the residence to pick up some of her belongings. Once arriving at the residence, Braswell threw belongings at the victim striking her in the face. The victim was also punched and kicked by the suspect before being dragged into the home by her hair. Once inside the home the suspect sat on top of her and placed his hands around her neck and threatened to kill her. The victim attempted to call 911 when the suspect grabbed the phone and attempted to sexually force it inside the victim. After briefly escaping the suspect, the victim was grabbed by the hair again and thrown to the ” oor. The suspect eventually let the victim go and she called law enforcement to the scene. After originally declining medical attention, the victim was transported to the hospital by Wakulla EMS. Tallahassee Police Department of“ cials are also investigating an altercation that occurred the previous day in a pharmacy in their jurisdiction which involved the suspect and victim. Braswell slapped a phone out of the victims hand at the store and store employees called 911. Braswell ” ed the scene when he realized law enforcement had been contacted. Braswell remains in the Wakulla County Jail awaiting his “ rst appearance.Man arrested for attempted murder Bryan Frederick Braswell Special to The NewsUndercover narcotics law enforcement of“ cers from the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce arrested an 18year-old Tallahassee man Thursday, July 19 following an undercover purchase of crack cocaine from the suspect at a Crawfordville business establishment, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA miniature version of the popular food-based reality show competition, Cupcake WarsŽ was held on July 19 and pitted “ ve new bakers against each other. All were hoping for the coveted title of Cupcake War Champion. The bakers were enrolled in a baking camp at the Donut Hole and were students of co-owners Brandy Jackson and Kyle Beckett. During the week-long camp, students, Madelyn and Robert Montpellier, Audrey Jackson, Danyelle Dias and Kolbie Jones learned how to make fondant, icing, decorations, cakes and cupcakes, all from scratch. On Thursday, the campers compete in cupcake wars. Everybody is so into Cupcake Wars,Ž says Jackson. So they decided to hold their own mini-version of it. They really enjoy it,Ž she said. The campers must come out with their own recipe and decorations for the cupcake. Monday through Wednesday, the campers are taught how to make the cake, decorations and fondant. They have three days to think about their cupcake,Ž Beckett says. Then on Thursday, they must come up with the ” avor for their cupcake and begin mixing and creating. Beckett says they are given a basic recipe for the tip of cupcake they want to make. Then they are on their own,Ž Beckett says. The only thing they do help with is the baking. The kids are not allowed to use the oven. The cupcakes are judged on decoration and taste and a winner is announced for each. Youd be amazed by some of the ” avors,Ž Beckett says. There are surprises in each of them, delightful surprises.Ž Some of the ” avors included hummingbird, chocolate with sprinkles inside, vanilla with pineapple chunks, red velvet with raspberry “ lling and strawberry cake with cherry icing. The hardest part was coming up with ideas,Ž says camper Madelyn Montpellier, who created the vanilla cupcake with pineapple chunks. Montpellier says she likes fruit and picked pineapple because its her favorite. Judges Jim Watson, Julie Watson and Lonnie Frederick critiqued and tasted the cupcakes while the students waited in the back room for the results. The judges were impressed by each cupcake placed before them and applauded the creativity of the young bakers. Theyre all excellent,Ž Frederick says. The judges are picked at random and have included members of Jacksons church, loyal customers and business acquaintances. When it came down for the judges to make a decision, they went with the vanilla cupcake with pineapple chunks for best taste citing the moistness of the cake and great ” avors. It will literally melt in your mouth,Ž Frederick says of the winner. It had that extra zing.Ž The judges chose a cupcake made by Dias for best decorated cupcake. Her cupcake had three star shaped decorations in blue, yellow and purple on top. Jim Watson says he liked the complexity of the decoration and all the bright colors. The judges also enjoyed the Cupcake War Junior Champion Jones cupcake. Jones is 5-yearsold and required some help from the teachers on her cupcake, but Beckett says she came up with the idea and mixed all the ingredients and decorated the cake on her own. Her cupcake was signi“ cantly bigger than the other cupcakes. I like the fact that its a super-sized cupcake,Ž says Jim Watson. Thats my kind of cupcake.Ž Page 16A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com Winner receives one meal from the following:Coastal Restaurant – AYCE Chicken or Pork Chop DinnerEl Jalisco – Mexican Grilled Chicken Fried or GrilledMyra Jeans – Grilled Chicken Pita with side Hamaknockers – Flatbread HoagiePulled Pork or Chicken Bouys By The Bay – Shrimp Basket & Drink Coastal Restaurant MOBILE CATERING984-2933Open: urs.

After announcing that it would be closing on Saturday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency decided it wasnt time yet to close. Its still being utilized,Ž said FEMA spokesperson Tim Tyson. The hours are Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. The center is located at 84 Cedar Avenue, Crawfordville. Representatives from the Florida Division of Emergency Management, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U. S. Small Business Administration and other agencies are at the center to assist survivors by explaining disaster assistance programs and helping them apply for aid. The center was averaging about 30 visits a day and that has dropped to about three, according to Tyson. Once the state and FEMA feel the needs of victims have been met and they have reached out to everyone, they will move on and close the DRC. Those who were affected by the disaster have until Sept. 4 to register with FEMA for assistance. In Wakulla County, 506 people have registered with FEMA for individual assistance and $700,000 has been approved for assistance, according to Tyson. Statewide, there are more than 11,000 people registered. The total amount of assistance approved is $15,347,284. The majority of this, $13,623,864, went to housing assistance. SBA has given out 68 homes loans statewide, totaling $2.85 million. Four people have received home loans in Wakulla County for a total of $128,600. Even if someone is approved for a loan and does not want it, they need to continue the process so they can be sent back to FEMA for possible assistance. The rates for homeowners is 2 percent and the maximum amount is $240,000. For businesses, they can borrow up to $2 million. The rates are 3 percent for non-pro“ t businesses, and for profit businesses have a rate of 4 percent. Those affected by the disaster have until Sept. 4 to register with FEMA. Help is always available by calling FEMAs toll-free helpline at 800-621-3362. Lines are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and assistance is av ailable in most languages. Survivors who are deaf or hard of hearing and use a TTY can call 800462-7585.Disaster Recovery Center will remain openBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netOn July 24, a team of public assistance specialists from the Florida Division of Emergency Management and representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency held an applicant brie“ ng for Wakulla County, municipalities and other non-pro“ ts who sustained damaged from Tropical Storm Debby. The brie“ ng was held in a packed conference room at the countys Emergency Management Center to explain the process of applying for requests for public assistance. Those applying for assistance have 30 days to do so after a county has been designated a disaster area. The president made this declaration for Wakulla County on July 9. Following this meeting, a kick off meeting will be held once the county knows amounts and a list of projects. A state and FEMA specialist will conduct the meetings to discuss damages, needs assessment and to develop a plan of action. After this meeting, applicants will have 60 days to submit required paperwork to FEMA. The purpose of this assistance is to help the applicant respond to and recover from a disaster, said Joyce Watters, public assistance coordinator at the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Once the applicant has submitted their paperwork, a state and FEMA team will be assigned to them to develop a detailed project list. All projects must be located in the disaster area, sustained damage from the disaster and must not receive any federal aid. FEMA does not reimburse for federal aid roads, Watters said. There are two types of projects, emergency and permanent. And the whole idea is to restore it to pre-disaster conditions, Watters said. The seven categories for public assistance funding are: A: Debris Removal B: Emergency Protective Measures (search and rescue, emergency levees, safety barricades and signs, emergency road repairs) C: Road Systems and Bridges D: Water Control Facilities E: Public Buildings and Contents F: Public Utilities (gas, water, irrigation, sewer) G: Parks, recreational and other facilities Some types of projects include debris removal, repairing or replacing damaged buildings and infrastructure, search and rescue, increased security and overtime pay for employees. It deals mostly with things that have been broken,Ž Watters said. A small project is considered less than $66,400, she said. Projects more than that are considered large projects and are paid based on the actual costs, determined after completion. Public assistance grants may reimburse up to 75 percent of the cost of the project. Typically, the state and county split the remaining 25 percent. According to Watters, mitigation projects are not included in the FEMA public assistance. However, the county would be eligible for mitigation grants. The county has one such project. The repairing of Bostic Pelt Bridge, which remains closed. The county does not have its estimates and project list complete, so a kick off meeting has not yet been held. However, the initial damage estimate was $12.2 million, according to County Administrator David Edwards.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 – Page 3B W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life Juanita Jester has attended the Senior Center regularly since January 2011. Everytime I walk through the dining room, I see her smiling. Her smiles appear to be “ lled with compassion. Recently, on a Saturday morning we both found enough free time to discuss her life and help me know more about her. Ms. Jester was born in Kentucky in 1932. She was the oldest of “ ve children. In the “ fth grade her family moved to Ohio for her dads new job with Armstrong. When Ms. Jester was 13 her mother became employed by the same company. This added extra responsibilities for raising the younger children. After high school she worked at an insurance company until she was married at age 20. She raised “ ve children, two daughters and three sons. When the youngest was 3 months old her husband left. Three years later she enrolled at Wright State University in Ohio. She received a degree in elementary education and taught school three years. She learned that she could not support a family of “ ve children on her teaching salary. She became employed by General Motors until she retired. In 2008 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After surgery she was treated with chemotherapy and radiation. After the treatments she moved in with her sister and experienced depression for almost a year because of the medications. She scrubbed floors, cleaned garbage cans, or any busy work to take her mind off her depression. In January 2011 she moved to Crawfordville to be near her youngest daughter. She immediately asked neighbors about a senior center. She found the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center. She had been in other senior centers before but none were like this. She has so many new friends here and recently moved into the Senior Apartments next door. She is a happy lady and you would know this if you saw her smile. Continued on Page 4BA smile of compassion with Juanita JesterBy TAMARA BYRNES and DIANE LANTERof the Senior CenterSchool is out, the weather is VERY hot and the Senior Center is the place to be to stay cool and have lots of summer fun. We had a great Summer Fun Party with games, prizes and lots of cotton candy. The seniors had made beautiful summer hats and wore them proudly. Everyone had loads of fun and lots of hot dogs and hamburgers! The children in the Before and After School Program, are here at the center on Tuesdays and Fridays. Field trips are scheduled Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. This is a great program for the kids and seniors to be able to interact together. It takes us back to our younger years and how much has changed. As we see the children using the computers we realize times have really changed; then we see them outside playing games and running through the sprinklers, I guess things havent really changed that much after all. We celebrated Flag Day with lots of red, white and blue and ” ags ” ying all over the dining room. The seniors were colorful in their array of stars, stripes and decorative clothing. We are a generation of patriots and the pictures, memorabilia, colors and songs, bring tears to our eyes. We are thankful to be living in America and having an active Senior Center in Wakulla County. We were proud to honor our Fathers on Friday. We presented them with colorful handkerchiefs and they promptly tied them around their heads, tied them around their necks, stuck them in their shirt pockets, and one gentleman tied his to the microphone, while he played his guitar. It was a fun day. Gov. Rick Scott declared June 15, Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Purple was the color for the event and purple ribbons were given to all seniors. Combating abuse of older people will help improve the quality of life for all seniors across the state and will allow seniors to continue to live as independently as possible, adding to their lives and vibrancy. If you would like to have a copy of the awareness proclamation from Gov. Scott, stop by the Senior Center and pick one up.

Page 4B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 3BThe most fascinating part of our discussion was the fact that she was born with one hand. The doctors told her parents that she lost her left arm just below the elbow because of her umbilical cord. She was so open discussing this issue. She has always lived with one hand and has never recognized any limitations that resulted from this. When her children were small, they had only cloth diapers. She always noticed that the diapers pinned on her children were better fitted and tighter than on any other children. She said that she has considered how life would be with two hands and it seemed that an extra hand on her left arm would be awkward and clumsy and would not allow her to carry on with her regular activities. It would just be in the way. Her smiles of compassion have always had a strong positive influence on those around her. But reflecting on my preconceived notions about her limitations has reinforced the concept that we all have differences and that is OK. I gained so much from this discussion.R.H. Carter is the executive director of the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center.A smile of compassion with Juanita JesterContinued from Page 3BA pet will be chosen to come to the center to visit with the seniors and be available for adoption. This will be a good time to view one up close and personal. Thank you, CHAT, for the work that you do. A visitor that we could have done without was Tropical Storm Debby. As a general rule in Wakulla County we all are so happy to see the rain come but in this case it just wouldnt stop! Many seniors were affected and are still going through the after-effects of the storm. Ms. Win Conger brought me in a short story that she wrote and I felt very strongly about sharing it. Someone told me a long time ago to be careful what you wish for because you are liable to get it. One of the things I wished for was a home on the waterfront. Now I have it in the back and on both sides. In fact I am completely surrounded 360 degrees with 15 inches of rain water. I began wishing for help from my neighbors and received it in so many ways. My power and phone were out, but neighbors waded in and brought food and finally convinced me to leave my home. Tropical Storm Debby opened my eyes and I am now a happy camper!Ž Ms. Conger is only one of the many seniors affected by the storm waters and we need to understand that many people are still trying to recover. We send our blessing out to all the storm victims. If you need referral help with storm related problems, the center would be glad to help you out. Monthly Activity Calendars are available at the center. We have a new website and you will be able to see our schedule and pictures too. The site is currently being updated but should be fully functioning very soon. The address is www.wakullaseniorcitizens.com. Let us know if you have any comments or suggestions. We are located at 33 Michael Drive in Crawfordville and the phone number is (850) 9267145.By SHELLY HOMANOf“ ce ManagerThe Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center has an upgraded website. There are many phases in the development process of a website. We have worked in connection with Melinda Patrick Cowen, Ph.D. and Todd Woodward of Creative People Consulting through the design phase, developmental phase, changes/ modi“ cation phase, testing, training, and finally the launch of the website. To access the Wakulla County Senior Center website, just go to www.wakullaseniorcitizens.com. Once youre on the website, you will have several links to choose as well as a new photo gallery.

Seniors celebrate summer, Flag Day, Fathers Day, and are visited by CHAT PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSMORE SUMMER FUN: Cotton candy was a treat at the Summer Fun Party, above, and more summer fun hats. Senior Center has upgraded website Special to The News Local senior care experts are urging Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla County families to be alert for scammers who may be targeting their senior loved ones with a variety of clever cons that could jeopardize not only their life savings, but their independence. Scam artists are speci“ cally targeting seniors, because they are the fastestgrowing segment of the population, which has led to increased demands on law enforcement agencies,Ž said Scott Harrell, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care of“ ce in Tallahassee serving seniors in Christian Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla counties, as well as the Panhandle. This scenario has the potential to put more local seniors than ever at risk of losing their life savings, their homes and their trust in others.Ž As a result, the non-pro“ t National Association of Triads and the local Home Instead Senior Care of“ ce have launched a public information program to educate families and seniors about how to protect themselves. The Protect Seniors from Fraud program … developed with the expert assistance of the Triads … provides family caregivers with a number of important tools at ProtectSeniorsFromFraud. com. Included in the websites various resources is a Criminal Target Scale, which can help family caregivers assess how likely their senior is to be the potential target of a scam. According to experts, the top three crimes targeting seniors are identity theft, Medicaid/Medicare and medication fraud, and “ nancial exploitation. The annual “ nancial loss by victims of elder “ nancial abuse is estimated to be at least $2.9 billion, a 12 percent increase since 2008. Making these con artists difficult to capture is the lack of reporting … a recent AARP study found that only 25 percent of victims over age 55 have reported to authorities that theyve fallen for a scam To obtain a free Senior Fraud Protection Kit, contact the local Home Instead Senior Care of“ ce at (850) 297-1897.Program aims to protect seniors from scams Phone 926-8245 926-2396As always, client service is our ultimate priority.Ž Frances Casey Lowe, Attorney Guilday, Tucker, Schwartz & Simpson, P.A. • Estate Planning-Wills, Power of Attorney, Living Wills, Trusts• Probate and Heir Land Resolution • Real Estate Transactions (Residential and Commercial) • Title Insurance • Business Planning and Incorporations • General PracticeCrawfordville Of ce3042 Crawfordville Highway Crawfordville, FL 32327Tallahassee Of ce1983 Centre Pointe Blvd Suite 200 Tallahassee, FL 32308 Call Pau l s Well Get Them All TERMITE & PEST CONTR OL P AUL S  P a a u u l l s s , W W e e l l G G e e t T h h e e m m A A l l l l ! 222-68081225 Commerce Blvd., Midway We Stand Behind Our WarrantyŽTOTAL PEST CONTROL SERVICEƒ EVERYTHING FROM TERMITES TO MICEService Agreements to Fit Your Needs, Financing AvailableServing The Residents of Wakulla County For Over 30 Years.Monticello € Tallahassee € Quincy € Wakulla r r sTM David HinsonSales Representative Authorized Firm Of WakullaHeat i ng & A i rServ i ng Wakulla & Frankl i n Count i es850-926-5592Sales & Serv i ce All Makes & Models3232 Crawfordville Hwy. € CrawfordvilleOwned & Operated by Gary Limbaugh Lic. # CAC1814304 One Click.

Special to The NewsThe annual Tour de France bike race in Europe is one of the ultimate tests of strength, endurance and tenacity. Just completing the race is a life accomplishment for most riders. But recently scientists who have been studying the effects of biking on the brain and body have found biking can improve brain health as well as having physical bene“ ts. With a daily 30 minute bike ride of medium intensity, you can improve your mood and wellbeing, and most importantly, reduce stress. Just like the heart, the brain needs to be active and “ t to perform at optimum levels. HAVE HELMET, WILL TRAVEL Biking has been found to be one of the most effective ways to improve your physical health. Its an easy, low impact exercise and can be adjusted to your own “ tness level. Riding a bike regularly may have many benefits that were just beginning to understand. One thing that is known is that biking, like other aerobic activities, helps to stimulate the brain, and reduce the burden of stress. One concentrated study at Tohoku University in Japan looked at motorcycle use and its the effects on the brain. They studied Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans and found that riding activates prefrontal areas of the brain. These prefrontal areas are stimulated as the brain zips signals to the body to steer the bike. Their Department of Functional Brain Imaging found that riding helps keep drivers young by invigorating their brains. The study found an area called the bilateral prefrontal cortex (PFC) was activated while riding. When these areas are simulated, they positively affected cognitive functions, stress reduction, memory, and concentration. These studies also suggest similar results will be found with bike riders. It is common knowledge that inactivity, lack of exercise or poor sleep can lead to feeling a low level of energy or mental stamina. Like muscular strength, brainpower is a use it or lose itŽ proposition. The more you work out your brain, the better youll be able to process and remember information. Like any form of exercise giving your brain a boost means youre keeping it healthy and “ t. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 – Page 5BDear Savvy Senior, Do you know of any gol“ ng gadgets or equipment that can help senior golfers? My 78-year-old dad loves to play golf, but arthritis in his hands makes griping the club dif“ cult. He also has a hard time bending over to tee up or retrieve the ball. Is there anything out there that can help? Helpful Son Dear Helpful, There are actually a number of gol“ ng gadgets and accessories on the market today that can help older golfers who struggle with arthritis, injuries or loss of mobility. Here are some possible solutions that can help keep your dad on the golf course. Gripping Helpers: Gripping a golf club is a very common problem for seniors with arthritis or those who have hand or elbow injuries, or any condition that affects their hand strength. To help alleviate this problem there are specially designed golf gloves and grips that can make a big difference. Depending on the severity of your dads problem, an inexpensive option to check out is the Bionic Golf Gloves (bionicgloves.com, 877-524-6642) which are ergonomically designed to improve grip with less effort. Or the Power Glove (powerglove.com, 800-836-3760) that uses a Velcro strap to secure the club to your hand. These gloves run between $20 and $30. Another option to consider is to get oversized grips installed on your dads clubs. These can make gripping the club easier and more comfortable, and are also very good at absorbing shock. Oversized grips are usually either onesixteenth-inch or one-eighth-inch larger in diameter than a standard grip, and cost around $5 to $10 per grip. Your local golf pro can help with this. Or, for a grip-and-glove combination “ x, check out the new Quantum Grip (quantumgrip.com, 855-692-3784) that incorporates hook Velcro golf grips and companion golf gloves that have mating loop Velcro material in the palm. This insures gripping power and prevents the club from slipping in your hand. The price: $30 per grip or $189 for a set of seven, plus $40 per glove. Bending Solutions: If back, hip or knee problems or lack of ” exibility is also hampering your dad on the golf course, there are a number of innovative gadgets that can eliminate the bending and stooping that comes with teeing up the ball, repairing divots, marking the ball on the green, retrieving a ball or tee on the ground, and picking a club, sand rake or ” ag stick up off the ground. These stoop-proof devices run anywhere from a few dollars up to $70 and can be found at sites like Kool Tee (kooltee.com, 800-324-6205), Tee Pal (teepalpro. com), and the Uprightgolf company (uprightgolf.com, 319-268-0939). Ergonomic Golf Carts: There are also a number of great ergonomic golf carts that can help older golfers who still like to walk the course. These are three or four-wheeled, lightweight push carts that provide great stability, can be adjusted to “ t your body size, and fold into a compact size in a matter of seconds for easy transport. Sun Mountain Sports (sunmountain. com), Bag Boy (bagboycompany.com) and Caddytek (caddytek.com) are three companies that make these type of carts at prices ranging anywhere from $130 to around $200. Or, for seniors with severe mobility loss or who are disabled, theres the SoloRider golf cart (solorider.com, 800-898-3353) that provides the ability to play from a seated position. Retailing for $9,450, this cart is lightweight and precisely balanced so it can be driven on tee boxes and greens without causing any damage. And federal ADA laws require that all publically owned golf courses allow them. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Medicare turns 46 on July 30, and oh, how it has changed throughout the years. One landmark event for Medicare, as for most elements of U.S. health care, was the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling upholding most aspects of the new national health-care law. As implementation of the new law proceeds, what does the future hold for Medicare? Because different parts of the law will go into effect over a number of years, its important to understand the changes that are in store for you. The AARP Health Law Guide, www.aarp.org/ healthlawguide, can help you stay on top of the law as it takes effect. The guide can also create a personalized report that tells you how the law will help you. If youre uninsured, your report will identify coverage you may be eligible to receive. In the meantime, here are a few changes to appreciate now: 1. If you reach the Medicare Part D doughnut hole „ the threshold at which you are responsible for a higher portion of your drug costs „ you will receive a 50 percent discount on brandname drugs and a 14 percent discount on generic drugs while in the coverage gap. 2. Medicare will provide preventive care services such as mammograms and screenings for cancer and diabetes, as well as an annual wellness visit, all at no cost to you. 3. If youre considered high-riskŽ due to prior or current health problems, and if you have been uninsured for at least six months, you may buy insurance through the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PHIP) in Florida. 4. You may be able to add uninsured children to your familys existing insurance plan if they are under age 26. 5. If you get sick, you will not lose your coverage as long as you continue to pay the premiums.

Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 20 … Florida lawmakers are fond of passing resolutions that mean relatively little. So heres an idea for a new resolution: Declare mid-July as Dog Days in Tallahassee.Ž But while the capital saunters through humidity and swarms of mosquitoes, campaign action is picking up in legislative races across the state. Redistricting and the exodus of longtime lawmakers have helped create a collection of marquee election battles. The campaigns took a nasty turn this week when a mail piece attacked the personal life of former Senate President Tom Lee, who is running against Rep. Rachel Burgin for a Hillsborough County Senate seat. The mail piece also highlighted the prevalence this year of shadowy political committees that are collecting large amounts of money to try to in” uence legislative races … often by tearing down candidates. Gov. Rick Scott isnt on the ballot this year, but even he isnt seen much in Tallahassee these days. Scott spent part of the week touting more jobs coming to Florida, though two new reports showed that the employment picture remains murky. READY TO RUMBLE Politics, as the old clich goes, aint beanbag. But the mail piece this week attacking Lee even drew a public rebuke from state Republican Chairman Lenny Curry. The mailer, in big letters, said Character MattersŽ and lumped Lee with Hillsborough County Property Appraiser Rob Turner, who has been embroiled in controversy recently about sending pornographic emails. The intent of the mailer clearly was to cast doubt about Lee among Republican voters in the largely conservative District 24, as the Aug. 14 primary against Burgin approaches. A group called The American People Committee, Inc., was behind the mailer, which asserted past marital in“ delity by Lee. The committee is chaired by lobbyist Keyna Cory, whose lobbyist husband, Jack, backs Burgin. Lee, who is seeking to return to the Legislature after six years on the sidelines, blasted the mailer. This is a full-contact sport … I get that, he told The Tampa Tribune. But it shouldnt touch your family.Ž Republican Senate leaders, meanwhile, continued rallying around Lees campaign, with Sens. John Thrasher of St. Augustine and Joe Negron of Stuart publicly backing him. Burgin said she wasnt surprised and contended that Republican leaders have targeted her because they dont agree with her conservative agenda. It is unprecedented, the Riverview Republican said. But Im not overly surprised to see that the Tallahassee insiders are trying to circle the wagons. The Lee-Burgin contest is on a short list of the most closely watched legislative races. New campaign“ nance reports offer a good guide to those “ ghts, which in the Senate also include a Jacksonville-area race between Rep. Mike Weinstein and former Rep. Aaron Bean; a Daytona Beach-area race between Rep. Dorothy Hukill and Volusia County Chairman Frank Bruno; a St. Petersburg-area race between Reps. Jeff Brandes and Jim Frishe; and a South Florida race between Sens. Ellyn Bogdanoff and Maria Sachs. But as in the Lee-Burgin race, the candidates campaign-contribution reports likely only tell a piece of the story. Obscure political committees … often with upbeat names such as Teachers United for Better Schools and Florida Freedom Council … have been busy collecting and parceling out money to try to in” uence races. SCOTT GOES WAWA FOR JOBS Scott continued his quest to attract jobs, including making an appearance Wednesday at the opening of Floridas “ rst Wawa convenience store in Orlando. Wawa, which operates in “ ve other states, plans to open 100 Florida stores and employ 35 people in each. Todays grand opening is evidence that more companies want to grow and expand here in Florida because of all we are doing to make our state the best place for business, Scott said in a news release. Scott also announced Digital Risk, a company that provides mortgage-related services, will expand in Florida, The expansion is expected to total 1,000 jobs, with 150 added in Boca Raton by early September. But a state report came out Friday that showed only modest jobs improvement in June. That report showed the states jobless rate unchanged from 8.6 percent in May … though it was 2.1 percentage points lower than in June 2011. Earlier in the week, state economists released another report crediting much of the recent drop in the states unemployment rate to a shrinking labor pool and not to more people “ nding work. Nevertheless, Scott remained positive after Fridays report. As companies are choosing to grow and expand in our state, we are continuing to see Florida experience a positive economic recovery, the governor said in a statement. Floridians have more and more opportunities to get back to work, and last month, 9,000 Floridians were able to get a job and provide for their families.Ž PRIVATIZATION PLAN GETS NEW LIFE Barring a successful legal challenge, two “ rms … Corizon and Wexford Health Sources … likely will be looking to add employees in Florida during the coming months. The only catch: The Department of Corrections will be shedding many of those same employees. DOC this week decided to move forward with a controversial plan to privatize prison health services across the state, with Corizon and Wexford getting the contracts. The decision came after Leon County Circuit Judge Kevin Carroll declined to rule in a challenge “ led by the Florida Nurses Association and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. The groups lawsuit centered on the fact that lawmakers last year used budget “ ne print, known as proviso language, to call for prison health privatization. The lawsuit contended that making the change in proviso language was unconstitutional, but Carroll did not rule on the question because the language expired with the June 30 end of the “ scal year. State lawyers have long contended DOC has the legal authority to do such a privatization, regardless of the proviso language. In announcing Tuesday that the agency would move forward, Secretary Ken Tucker said the move would save money and was best for the taxpayers.Ž But the announcement could spur further legal wrangling. It doesnt shock me, said Don Slesnick, an attorney for the nurses association. It disappoints me that the state is that devious and the DOC is being that antiemployee.Ž STORY OF THE WEEK: The Department of Corrections decided to move forward with privatizing prison health services. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: 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. If that happens, we wont get our results for weeks.Ž --Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall, expressing caution about trying to purge ineligible voters, even after the state received approval to use a U.S. Department of Homeland Security database.WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Hardball politics and a dash of wawaBy MARGIE MENZELTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 20 – As Congress considers a farm bill that could slash federal food assistance, Florida – with nearly 18 percent of its residents relying on that help – could nd its poor still further submerged beneath the poverty line. Last week the U.S. House Agriculture Committee passed a bill containing $16 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, formerly known as food stamps. That would be a reduction more than three times larger than a proposed $4.5 billion reduction in the Senate version. Since 2007, before the recession, the number of Florida residents receiving food assistance has more than doubled, said Rebecca Brislain, executive director of the Florida Association of Food Banks. “The amount of money people get on SNAP doesn’t meet all their food needs,” Brislain said. “There’s no way charitable programs could ll the gap.” Lack of regular access to food in Florida households grew from 9 percent in 2007 to 16.1 percent, or 1,214,000 households, in 2010, according to the Food Research Action Center in Washington, D.C. “A lot of people are struggling,” said Don Winstead, a former state administrator who led Florida’s overhaul of its food stamp payment system. “Anything that reduces the amount of SNAP assistance adds to their struggle.” The extent of the cuts is by no means certain. The farm bill is being hotly debated, and House Speaker John Boehner may not bring the Agriculture Committee’s version to the oor before the November election. GOP leaders on Friday decided not to schedule it for a oor vote next week, leaving only four legislative days to consider the $957 billion package before Congress recesses in August. Farm programs funded by the measure expire Sept. 30. The legislation is opposed by people of differing political persuasions, from those who think it cuts too much to those who think it doesn’t cut enough. If the House version were to prevail, it would reduce federal spending by $35 billion over ten years. The Senate version saves $23 billion, the difference entirely due to the chambers’ respective SNAP reductions. The SNAP cuts could affect Florida in several ways. First, the House bill would eliminate the practice of “categorical eligibility.” Florida is one of 40 states to use the so-called “cat-el,” a holdover from the 1996 welfare reform legislation that allows families to automatically qualify for SNAP by participating in other programs for the poor, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, and vice versa.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 – Page 7B -Janet (ARA) As families become more concerned about the quality of food they are putting on the table, many are realizing that getting back to the basics is one of the best ways to eat better and not compromise on taste. If youre looking for ways to improve your family meals it doesnt require a major overhaul of your approach to shopping or cooking. Often, just a few simple adjustments can go a long way. One of the easiest ways to upgrade a home-cooked meal is to select the freshest form of the recipes main ingredients, and focus on the quality of groceries on your shopping list. If you need some inspiration, here are four ways to focus on keeping meals simple and delicious: € Using quality ingredients doesnt mean everything needs to be made from scratch. Pack fresh vegetables into family favorites like classic salads and sandwiches. Complement these dishes with readymade products that also focus on quality ingredients. For example, a staple ingredient that makes classic dishes such as BLTs and homemade potato salads taste even better is Hellmanns Real Mayonnaise. Its made with high quality, simple ingredients such as oil, vinegar, and now cage-free eggs. Dedicated to real, quality ingredients for nearly 100 years, Hellmanns recently announced its commitment to transition all of its recipes to 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2020. € Pick out the main ingredient in your recipe and aim for quality. Whether youre making steaks, chicken or eggs, try using farm-fresh products from a local producer. € Build meals around vegetables that are in season, such as midsummer BLTs when tomatoes are ripe for the picking. Plan a meal on the same day that you visit a local farmers market so you can use vegetables that may have been picked that morning, or better yet, cultivate your green thumb with a home garden for unlimited access to fresh and inexpensive vegetables. € Use fresh herbs as seasoning to add a burst of ” avor to your meals. Fresh garlic is a great ” avor booster, as it has a long shelf live and can be used in a wide variety of cooking styles. The following Turkey & Avocado BLT recipe demonstrates how a few simple, quality ingredients can make for a delicious meal: Turkey & Avocado BLT Ingredients: 1 tablespoon Hellmanns or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise 1 ciabatta or soft roll, split and toasted 2 green leaf lettuce leaves 3 ounces sliced deli turkey breast 2 slices tomato 3 slices avocado (optional) 2 slices bacon, crisp-cooked Directions: Evenly spread Hellmanns or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise on roll, then layer with remaining ingredients. Visit www.hellmanns.com for additional ideas on how to incorporate real, simple ingredients into more of your classic dishes.

The Estate of Sherrol Wilson, David Wilson, as Personal Representative of the Estate of Sherrol Wilson; Brianna Donaldson, as an heir of he Estate of Sherrol D. Wilson; and the heirs, Devisees, grantees, assignees, or other claimants of the Estate of Sherrol D. Wilson, Respondents. FINDINGS OF FACT, CONCLUSIONS OF LAW AND ORDER THIS CAUSE came for public hearing before the Wakulla County Code Enforcement Board (the BoardŽ) on July 11, 2012 and having heard testimony under oath and received evidence, the Board issues its Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, and enters its Order in this case as follows: FINDINGS OF F ACT 1. Respondents are the owners of the subject property. 2. On August 15, 2011, the Code Enforcement Office conducted an inspection in response to a complaint received regarding the subject property, located at 157 Finner Drive, Crawfordville, Florida 32327, Parcel ID No 20-2S-01E-142-0491 7-D07, and observed the storage ofa large amount of tires in an unenclosed area in violation of section 8 .042, Wakulla County Code of Ordinances. 3. Pursuant to sŽ 162.06, Fla. Stat. and s. 8065, Wakulla County Code, the Code Enforcement Officer issued an initial Notice of Violation to Respondents on August 22, 2011, by way of regular mail and certified mail, providing notice of the violation and also providing a reasonable time for correction of the violation and a date for compliance of September 15, 2011 4. On January 6, 2012, the Code Enforcement Office conducted a follow-up inspection to determine whether the violations were corrected by the date for compliance. The inspection revealed that the violations had not been corrected, The Code Enforcement Office issued a new Notice of Violation to Respondents by way of regular mail and certified mail, providing notice of the violation and a new date for compliance of February 6, 2012. An additional notice was mailed on March 26, 2012, providing a compliance date of April 10, 2012. 5. Additional notice of the violation and the hearing on the violation was given by way of publication in the Wakulla News once a week each week from May 17, 2012 through June 7, 2012, for four consecutive weeks, 6. Respondents failed to provide written notice of the correction of the violations to the Code Enforcement Office on or before the date for compliance, and the violations were not actually corrected. 7. Respondents were served with proper notice of the public hearing and Respondents, or their representative, failed to appear at the hearing. 8. Code Enforcement staffs testimony expresses concern that the tires constitute a health hazard due to the accumulation of water within the tires. CONCLUSIONS OF LA W The subject property is alleged to be in violation of section 8.042, of the Wakulla County Code of Ordinances Sections 8.042, states: All property shall remain free from any nuisance accumulation of rubbish or garbage other than that placed in an approved, and enclosed receptacle. Anuisance accumulation of rubbish or garbage in violation of this section shall be deemed to have occured if an owner or occupant of property allows garbage to remain on the property beyond a period of seven days or rubbish to remain on the property beyond a period of 15 days. § 8,042(a), Wakulla County Code. For the purposes of section 8.042, rubbishŽ is defined to include combustible and non-combustible waste materials, including, but not limited to: the residue from the burning of wood, coal, coke and other combustiblematerials, paper, rags, cartons, boxes, wood, excelsior, rubber, leather, tree branches, yard trimmings, tin cans, disconnected or inoperable appliances, metals, mineral matter, glass, crockery and dust, construction debris, and other similar materials.Ž § 8.041, Wakulla County Code. An accumulation of tires would be included within the definition of rubbish  Section 8 .042 further requires that property owners dispose of rubbish in a safe and sanitary manner by placing such rubbish in approved containers, if possible, and removing it to an approved disposal facility within the County Pursuant to the above stated provision of the Wakulla County Code, and based on the evidence and testimony presented at the public hearing, the Wakulla County Code Enforcement Board finds by clear and convincing evidence that the Respondents have allowed items meeting the definition of rubbishŽ to remain on the subject property for a period in excess of fifteen days, Furthermore, this violation presents a serious risk to the public health due to the potential for standing water which may contribute to an increased number of mosquitos and the spread of mosquito-born illnesses. ORDER Based upon the foregoing Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, and pursuant to the authority granted in Chapter 162, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 8, Wakulla County Land Development Code, by motion made and duly seconded and passed by the Board by a majority vote of at least four (4) members, it is hereby ORDERED: 1:.

Other materials, including the tires, must be removed to the Wakulla County transfer station during its hours of operation, In addition, Respondents shall pay an administrative charge in the amount of $150.00 for administrative costs associated with inspecting the subject property and presenting this Case to the Board on or before the Compliance Date., 2, In the event that Respondents comply with this Order, as verified in an Affidavit of Compliance filed with the Board by the Code Enforcement Officer, the Chairman shall be authorized to enter an Order Acknowledging Compliance on behalf of the Board, a certified copy of which shall be recorded in the public records of Wakulla County, and provided by certified mail to Respondents, Ahearing is not required for issuance of the Order Acknowledging Compliance. 3 In the event that Respondents fail to comply with this Order on or before the Compliance Date, as verified in an Affidavit of Non-Compliance filed with the Board by the Code Enforcement Officer, the Board hereby authorizes the Chairman to enter an Order Imposing Fines, a certified copy of which shall be recorded in the public records of Wakulla County, and provided by certified mail to Respondents. Such fines shall be imposed in the amount of $150.00 for the first day and $50.00 for each and every day thereafter that the violation continues past the Compliance Date. Ahearing is not required for issuance of the Order Imposing Fines. 4. Upon recordation in the public records, the Order Imposing Fines shall constitute a lien against the land on which the violation exists and upon any other real or personal property owned by Respondents. Upon petition to the circuit court, such Order shall be enforceable in the same manner as a court judgment. The fines imposed in the Order shall continue to accrue until Respondents come into compliance or until judgment is rendered, whichever occurs first. 5, In addition, if Respondent fails to comply with this Order, the Board hereby directs Wakulla County, through the Code Enforcement Officer to obtain quotes from the vendors on the Countys approved vendor list for removal of the tires and disposal at an appropriate location. Quotes shall be brought back to the Code Enforcement Board at its next meeting for consideration by the Board due to the public health threat created by the existence of the tires. 6.

Page 14B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com(ARA) Whether youre heading to your beach house or visiting family in far-off locales, summer driving can be a fun, ful“ lling experience. But while drivers of all ages can enjoy the pleasures of a long trip, changes in roads, road rules and driving conditions can make it more important for older drivers to make extra preparations to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey. AARP Driver Safety offers some advice for drivers age 50 and older who are planning to be on the road this summer. BEFORE YOU GO Some basic preparations can help ensure you and your vehicle are both in top form for your road trip. First, take care of yourself by making sure youre well rested, up-to-date on all medications, and have addressed any health concerns that could affect your driving ability. Its also a good idea to brush up on your driving skills. AARPs Driver Safety course is specifically designed to help people 50 and older refresh their driving skills and adapt to age-related changes, such as those to vision, hearing and reaction time. You can “ nd an in-person course near you by searching at www.aarp.org/ “ ndacourse or you can sign up for an online course. Taking a course may even score you a discount on your auto insurance rates, according to the website DMV.org. Next, take a look at your vehicle. Perform routine maintenance like an oil change (if your car is due for one) and check all ” uid levels. Check tire in” ation and tread wear, make sure windshield wipers are in good condition, and clean all windows and headlights. Finally, make sure you pack items that can make your long drive easier and safer. Your travel equipment should include basic emergency tools like jumper cables, a jack and spare tire, and emergency ” ares. Also, be sure your trunk has a “ rst-aid kit and your up-to-date GPS device is front and center … but not obstructing your vision … inside the car. WHILE ON THE ROAD Once youre on the road, take steps to ensure you stay rested and focused. Take frequent and regular rest stops that allow you enough time for a bathroom break and to walk around a bit. Walking and gentle stretching can help ease stiff joints and muscles that may tighten up from inactivity. Planning your trip to take in some sights along the way is a great way to break up the journey. Check out online resources like travel websites and mapping apps for suggestions of tourist attractions and roadside diners where you can stop along the way. Avoid reviewing maps or your GPS directions while youre driving, as those things can become distracting and distracted driving is dangerous driving. Instead, designate a navigator who will monitor directions and read them aloud to you. Minimize nighttime driving as more accidents happen when its dark. If you must drive at night, use extra caution and remember to park in well-lit areas. Avoid driving during bad weather. Remember, youre on vacation, not on a schedule; you can spare the time to pull over rather than drive in torrential rain. A driver safety course specifically designed for people 50 and older can also help you learn coping techniques if you have agerelated mobility or vision issues that affect your ability to drive at night or in bad weather. While on your trip, be sure someone trusted knows your route and your approximate arrival time, and check in with that person during breaks to let them know your progress. To learn more about driver safety, visit www. aarp.org/drive or call (888) 227-7669 (AARP-NOW) to learn more about taking the AARP Driver Safety course.Some summer driving tips for boomersSpecial to The News Florida has something new speci“ cally designed for aging drivers. The Florida Guide for Aging Drivers is a handy book available at no cost to senior drivers, compliments of the Florida Safe Mobility for Life Coalition. The Coalition, a group comprised of professionals from 28 organizations, created the guide to give aging drivers a comprehensive resource with the most up-to-date information available. Users will “ nd safe driving tips, licensing information, lists of resources, and community contacts for every county in the state. Basically, the guide offers just about everything an aging driver needs to be more proactive about staying safe on the road. The book complements the website www.SafeandMobileSeniors.org and is just the right size for the cars glove box and available through the Safe Mobility for Life Resource Center, 636 West Call Street, Tallahassee FL 32306, or online at safe-mobility-forlife@fsu.edu. Why does Florida need an aging driver guide? Actually, it makes perfect sense when you consider that Florida leads the nation with 18 percent of its population age 65 and older. In fact, by the year 2030, over 27 percent will be over age 65, with half of those 75 or older. Mirroring this growth, an increasing proportion of drivers in Florida are getting older. Currently, nearly 3 million drivers in Florida are over age 65. Most people experience a steady decline in some of the skills needed to safely drive as we get older, however, these changes do not affect all drivers at the same age or in the same way,Ž says Gail Holley, Florida Department of Transportations Safe Mobility for Life Program and Research Manager. It is important for everyone to understand the impact that aging can have on their driving and learn the warning signs and resources that are available to them so they can make the transition when driving may no longer be a safe option.Ž ARA PHOTOFlorida rolls out new guide for senior drivers Where the little things Make a Difference!

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe past several months has brought out those people who oppose and those who support the Wakulla County Airport in full force. In response to the immense controversy surrounding the airport, a workshop was held for the Wakulla County Commission on July 17 to hear from both sides. This issue is in the top 3 for the amount of emails received from concerned citizens, said Commissioner Alan Brock. The controversy started after a portion of private property on Surf Road that is next to the airport was cleared and a sign stating that it was the future site of the airport expansion was placed on the site. Many residents in the area became concerned about a possible expansion and their properties being impacted. Several of these residents spoke at the workshop, wanting the airport to remain as it is. Some also urged the county commission to turn the airport back over to Tarpine residents and let it be a private airport. Lets focus on things that actually add value to Wakulla County, said Troy Mills, a member of the Ochlockonee Bay Alliance, a group that is against the airport expansion. After listening to almost 40 people share their opinion, four out of ve commissioners expressed their desire to keep the airport as a county amenity. I dont want to see the airport go away, Commissioner Mike Stewart said. The airport is a value to many, he said. But to most of us, its a strip of land. Commissioner Randy Merritt said 95 percent of residents dont care about the airport, however, if asked if they mind the county having an airport, Merritt said he was sure they wouldnt. They just dont want to pay for it, Merritt said.

Hicks Seaman Morris Tilley Sides square off over airport Four of the ve commissioners indicate their support for airport expansion at workshopBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 23 The Florida Department of Education is once again dealing with the fallout from test scores and school grades, this time after admitting that dozens of grades released earlier this month were mistaken. In all, 213 schools and nine districts had to have their grade revised as part of a continuous review process, according to the agency. The move affects 8 percent of the schools in the state. All of the scores increased by a single letter grade. School grades are important to students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators and the community, Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson announced. And, while I am pleased that the continuous review process has resulted in better grades, we will continue to look for ways to improve the grade calculation process. The changes, announced after the close of business day Friday, eased some of what had been a dramatic drop in the grades so far. The number of A schools, for example, had plummeted from 1,481 in 2011 to 1,124 this year. That number is instead 1,240 -representing a jump of 5 percentage points in the number of schools getting the highest grade. Continued on Page 9APRESENTING INFORMATION: Supporters and opponents of the airport expansion presented their information to county commissioners at a workshop on Tuesday, July 17. Speaking for the expansion was Airport Manager Steve Fults, top left, while speaking against it was Troy Mills, below. The commission chambers was packed with citizens both for and against, and many expressed their opposition with stickers, like the one above. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe school district grades have been released and for the seventh consecutive year, Wakulla School District has earned an A. With the standards for the new Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test 2.0 being much stricter and the cut scores being raised, schools across the state have seen a drop in school and district grades, but Wakulla was able to maintain its A. They can keep ratcheting up the scores, said Superintendent David Miller. The teachers are savvy and adapt to the changes and the students continue to meet those high standards, he said. Wakulla ranked 11th last year and dropped to 13 or 14 this year, according to Miller. We made it by the skin of our teeth, Miller said. This year, only 17 school districts out of 68 were rated an A, according to Beth ODonnell, assistant superintendent for instruction. Last year, 30 districts received an A. Wakulla was the only district in the Big Bend to receive the high grade. The closest school districts that received an A were Okaloosa County to the west and Clay County to the east, Miller said. Were in pretty elite company, Miller said. Neighboring school districts that experienced a drop in rating included Leon, Gulf, Calhoun and Liberty counties, all which dropped from an A to a B. The rating is from a cumulative score of all the FCAT 2.0 points from all Wakulla public schools in reading, writing, math and science in grades three through 10 for the 2011-12 school year. For the rst time, scores from the new End of Course exam in Algebra 1 counted as well, according to ODonnell. Out of the nine years that districts have been graded on this scale, Wakulla has only been rated a B one year, which was the second year. All other years, the district has received an A. I think thats significant, Miller said. It has sustained a tradition of excellence over the years. He credited the teachers, who are the crux and the students, administrators, staff and parents for the achievement. Previously it was announced that Medart Elementary School had dropped from an A to a B, but a recent recalculation of school grades by the Florida Department of Education moved Medart from two points away from an A to an of cial A, according to ODonnell. This gives them 11 consecutive years of an A rating.Continued on Page 9A School grades are recalculated, Wakulla gains another AState revises school grades upwards Superintendent of Schools David Miller 30 puppies abandoned at animal shelter e Wakulla County Animal Shelter was overwhelmed this week after someone dropped o 30 puppies. e pups, from several di erent litters, included some shepherd mix and black lab puppies.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA FEMA hazard mitigation specialist was on hand last week to offer homeowners some mitigation tips. Gerry Bonney said one of the biggest issue his of ce deals with is mold and mildew. It is the biggest concern of victims that his team addresses. The best thing to do is get things cleaned up as soon as possible, Bonney said. This does not just include mold and mildew on walls and ceilings, but on furnishing as well. A lot of time people try to salvage the items, he said. Dont try to save everything. Sometimes there is no way to get rid of the mold and mildew, he added. If youre not sure what to do, thats what were here for, Bonney said. The No. 1 biggest thing Bonney stressed was for every homeowner to get ood insurance, even if they do not live in a ood area. Renters can also get renters insurance, he said. The best way to be prepared is to have the right information, Bonney said. And the cheapest best item people can get is a weather radio, he said. It will wake you up in the middle of the night, Bonney said. He also stressed the importance of a family to have an emergency plan. Visit ready.gov for a checklist. Some other tips: Install back flow valves for when the sewer backs up. Construct barriers if the home sits in a low spot to channel the water away from the home. Put important papers in a waterproof container somewhere up high. Retro t the roof. Go in to the existing structure and reinforce it to keep it from leaking in the future. If the air conditioning unit was ooded, look at elevating it. Visit FEMA.gov or floodsmart.gov to get more information.

Prior to Tuesday, Langston had expressed his intention not to attend the forum held by the Wakulla County Christian Coalition and Concerned Citizens of Wakulla County. Creel planned to attend the forum. Whether Langston showed or not, the groups intended to proceed with the forum. However, Creel said he learned of Langstons sons condition around 5 p.m. on Tuesday and just didnt feel holding a forum was the right thing to do. This is not a time of campaigning, Creel said. It is a time of prayer. CCOW and the christian coalition plan to reschedule the forum, but have not yet set a date. Langstons son, Loren Heath Langston, 37, passed away Saturday, July 21. Funeral services were held on Tuesday, July 24. FILE PHOTOSCandidates for Wakulla County Sheriff: Charlie Creel, left, and Maurice LangstonSheriffs forum is postponedBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe St. Marks City Commission awarded the contract for its streetscape improvements to Hale Contracting on July 9. The city was awarded a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant for downtown revitalization. Hale Contractings bid was $398,123 and includes the addition of a sidewalk on both sides of Port Leon Drive from Pine Street to Riverside Drive, an imprint of a lighthouse in the center of the road at the end of Riverside Drive, benches, trash cans, period lighting and landscaping improvements. The landscaping improvements include a 4-foot median in certain points of the road, which would have owers and other plants to help with the beauti cation of the road. Work will begin 10 days after the contract is signed, said City Manager Zoe Mans eld. They are hoping it will be finished before the Stone Crab Festival in October. In other news: The commission appointed City Commissioner Ray Stokes as the citys representative on the countys planning commission. The county recently amended its planning commission to have Sopchoppy and St. Marks representatives be voting members. In 2009, the county commission voted to change the composition of the planning commission, making Sopchoppy and St. Marks non-voting members. People in both cities became upset and some chose not to attend the planning commission meetings after that. Mans eld will serve as the alternate. The next meeting is Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. at city hall.CITY OF ST. MARKSBids for streetscape improvements awardedBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 20 Floridas June jobless rate remained unchanged from May at 8.6 percent but 2.1 percentage points lower than June 2011, the Department of Economic Opportunity reported Friday. The newest gures come three days after state economists released a report crediting much of the recent drop in the states unemployment rate to a shrinking labor pool and not to more people nding work. But state employment gures point to an increase of 70,900 non-agricultural jobs created since June 2011, a 1 percent increase that Gov. Rick Scott said re ects a slow but steady march toward economic recovery. As companies are choosing to grow and expand in our state, we are continuing to see Florida experience a positive economic recovery, Scott said in a statement. Floridians have more and more opportunities to get back to work, and last month, 9,000 Floridians were able to get a job and provide for their families. Floridas June figure mirrored the national outof-work picture. The U.S. rate for June also remained unchanged from May and stood at 8.2 percent. Fridays release showed year-to-year gains in health care, professional services and trade employment, which posted a combined increase of 77,200 jobs. Tourism employment also increased by 19,300 over the year. Floridas construction sector continued to suffer, with 24,900 fewer jobs available compared to a year ago. The number of government jobs fell by 10,100. Despite the job gains, the Legislatures Of ce of Economic and Demographic Research released a report Tuesday saying Floridas unemployment rate would be 9.5 percent if labor market analysts took into account a significant drop in the number of people seeking employment. Economists attributed 69 percent of the jobless rate declines since December to a shrinking labor force and not to job creation. The panel concluded it would take the creation of 1 million jobs to reach the employment peak reached in early 2007. Unemployment figures do not take into account long-term unemployed or discouraged workers who are longer seeking jobs. Scott acknowledged as much earlier this week but said Friday that other economic indicators point to an increase in employment in sectors that have suffered. I know we still have a lot more work to do, and we wont stop until every Floridian who wants a job is able to get one, Scott said after visiting a workforce center in Zephyrhills, near Tampa, Friday morning. Among Floridas 19 metropolitan areas, CrestviewFort Walton Beach-Destin had the states lowest jobless rate in June, at 6.1 percent. It was followed by Gainesville (7.3 percent), and Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach-Deer eld Beach and Tallahassee (7.7 percent each). The states highest metro unemployment rate was Palm Coast at 12.3 percent. It was followed by SebastianVero Beach (11.3 percent), and Port St. Lucie (10.9 percent) Mitigation specialist o ers tipsFor more on Debbys aftermath, see stories on Page 1B FEMA holds brie ng on assistance Disaster Recovery Center will remain openState jobless rate unchanged in JuneFrom WorkforcePlusJune 2012 saw a slight increase in unemployment for our local area, however, the Tallahassee metro area (Gadsden, Leon, Wakulla and Jefferson) continues to hold the third lowest unemployment rate in the state. Gadsdens non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June was 8.9 percent, Leons was 7.6 percent, and Wakulla was 7.4 percent. Industries with the most growth in the tri-county area were leisure and hospitality, education and health services and professional and business services. During the month of June, there were 5,333 online advertised vacancies in Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties according to the Help Wanted OnLine Data Series by the Conference Board. While openings listed online cover a number of industries, the most in-demand occupations were for Registered Nurses, Web Developers, Truck Drivers and First Line Supervisors.Local unemployment up slightly 2nd Annual Landon Greene Memorial Scholarship CHARITY Golf Tournament Saturday Aug. 11, 2012 at 8:15 A.M.Hole Sponsors are $100 per holeAll Proceeds go to WAKULLA PRE-KFor more information or to sign up call Jared Greene (850-556-8982) or Amber Greene (850-556-6109) or email amber@famb.org. $220 Per Team (4 person team) or $55 per personThank You for Your Support!!!

READERS WRITE: e airport issue continues to spark debate County will ll wetlands for airport Looking at candidate Don Curtis Candidate Halsey Beshears seeks support Clothes donations for victims appreciatedEditor, The News: In keeping with researching the people running for the District 7, Florida House of Representatives, I took a look at Don Curtis to see how he is connected to Wakulla County. Mr. Curtis is proud of being the owner and manager of The Forestry Company. He is an expert concerning timberlands, including timberlands in Wakulla County and works for Wakulla County landowners. Im convinced Mr. Curtis understands the trials (and rewards) of owning a small business. He has created jobs and knows the burdens of unnecessary regulations. I was also impressed that Mr. Curtis chose to use local businesses to promote his campaign. Despite having business relations with businesses in a neighboring county, he chose to spend some of his campaign money with Wakulla County businesses. Water is always a concern. I discovered Mr. Curtis is a former Governing Board Member of a Water Management District and understands water issues. Mr. Curtis spent 10 years of his career as the assistant director of the Florida Division of Forestry and the director of Land Acquisition for a water management district. I believe he will remember the lessons he learned if he is our representative in the Florida Legislature. As you consider who to support in the Republican Primary, please do your own research. We have several good candidates who would do a good job in representing us. Most important of all is to research all the candidates to determine who you feel will best represent your beliefs. Ed Brimner Crawfordville Editor, The News: An open letter to Wakulla County voters: Hello, my name is Halsey Beshears and I am running as a Republican for the Florida House of Representatives. I run a small nursery and landscape business in Monticello, and my wife Cristi and I are also raising our three daughters in Jefferson County. I am running to be your State Representative because I believe we need our strong North Florida values represented in the Florida Capitol. I am not a career politician, never held a political of ce or ever run for a political of ce. However, I am familiar enough with the inner workings of Tallahassee having testi ed to committees before and working with legislatures to prevent bad legislation from taking place. Wakulla County is very important to me. In fact, my brothers and I have owned property in Wakulla County combined for over a decade. We pay property tax and we have a vested interest in the economic growth and prosperity of the businesses in the county. Like many of you, our family makes its living off the land, growing native and fruiting trees. Our nursery was truly a green business long before being green was the political buzzword or it was cool to do. We nursery people are the original stewards of the land and water. As a small business owner I have seen and struggled with balancing a budget, making a payroll, and remaining nimble enough to keep the business going, while still navigating the endless mine eld of regulation at all levels of government. I believe we have to get the government out of the way of small business. This does not mean repeal every regulation on the books, it means applying some common sense, some logic and being practical to protect our natural resources while still allowing businesses to keep the employees they have to create new jobs. If you believe these issues are important then I humbly ask you to give me the privilege and honor of serving you in Tallahassee. If you would like to learn more about me or share your thoughts on how we can protect and improve our north Florida home, please call me at (850) 274-1084 or visit our website at www.halseybeshears.com. Most importantly, please get out and vote. Early voting starts Aug. 4 and runs through Aug. 11 and the primary is Aug. 14. I hope to hear from many of you soon! Very respectfully, Halsey Beshears Republican candidate Florida House of Representatives Editor, The News: I would like to invite all the citizens of Wakulla County to visit their county airport. If you live in St. Marks you will get to enjoy a 30 mile drive across the entire county. Dont make the mistake of stopping when you nally do see an airstrip. You must continue to Surf Road turn right, go one half-mile to Bay Drive to the airport sign and make another right. Do not be concerned because there is not a sign telling you it is the Wakulla County Airport. In 35 years of ownership, we have just forgotten to identify it as an airport. You may have heard it called the Tarpine Landing strip since they have identi ed themselves as a y-in community. If you live in the Bloxom Cut-off area, you too can drive the 30-35 miles across the county to our most southern border. A word of caution-if your children are with you and actually want to see an airplane land or take off, you may want to go north 20 miles to the Tallahassee Regional Airport. Many days, no airplanes land or take off at the Wakulla County Airport (the one your tax dollars is supporting). Once you turn on Bay Drive, go to the locked gate and park in the road (there is nowhere else to park). You cant drive in but you can walk through the gap in the gate onto the airstrip. I dont believe it is illegal since you are a part-owner as a taxpayer. You have been paying tax dollars for maintenance and insurance through your ad valorem taxes. If the BOCC moves forward with the Tarpine proposed improvements and expansion, you will be paying with state tax dollar from taxes on air ights, aviation fuel and motor fuel (gasoline). It will be nice to have every Floridian help us pay the $3-plus million the county has for the airport in its ve-year Capital Outlay Plan. If no airplanes are present when you visit, walk onto the northwest property edge towards Highway 98. Do not walk on the east side of the airstrip or you may accidently stray into the Tarpine residents property and I know that would be illegal. As you move along (the west border) you can stop and observe the wildlife and the THREE wetlands you pass. You can wear shorts because there are no longer any buffers around the wetlands. The wetlands trees and shrubs were illegally removed. The airstrip ends at the water on both the north or south borders. The wetlands might be a good thing to show your children because they wont be the same (or in existence) for their children. Because no FDOT of cial showed up at the BOCC Airport Workshop to answer questions, the county will ll in 50 feet of the wetlands to create the FDOT required 250 feet width for the landing strip at Tarpine. I am not sure why the BOCC voted to protect buffer zones for you and me on our private property but, somehow, they can ll wetlands on public property whenever they want. It seems to me there are three possible reasons for this dilemma: 1. BOCC didnt realize they would be required to ll wetlands when they agreed to go forward; or 2. There is no place better in our county for an airport; or 3. The need for this airport is so great it justi es action contrary to BOCCs own stated policies. It must be #3 because BOCC would not allow a homeowner/builder to ll in wetlands to build a home. If a few hours pass and you havent seen an air plane (contrails dont count), at least enjoy a meal at one of our local restaurants. They have good food, parking lots for your car and restrooms which you will need by now. Stan Brown Ochlockonee Bay Editor, The News: I was forwarded an email (see below) and would like to present my understanding of the facts and support for the BOCC. (The forwarded email: Hello: Madeleine Carr here: Sharing this is from a person on Ochlockonee Bay: (I dont know if Wakulla Gardens has a neighborhood association, but some interesting facts that might be shared with your neighbors. BOCC wants to solicit more than $3 million from FDOT to buy land, move and pave the airstrip runway. There are a million reasons NOT to support and among them would be the environmental sensitivity of the area and the inability to be self-sustaining. Look at Carrabelle or Apalachicola airports they depend HEAVILY on taxpayer funding for maintenance, insurance and more. (If they are asking Wakulla Gardens residents to PAY for the roads, why is BOCC not soliciting FDOT funding to help pave those roads? (Just food for thought. Our group on Ochlockonee Bay feels strongly that taxpayers should not support an airport used primarily by individuals.) Some citizens may have become unnecessarily distressed, especially those in Wakulla Gardens. I understand Ms. Carr forwarded the email on behalf of another and correctly so thank you. Ms. Carr. First and foremost, these state funds CANNOT be used for anything other than airport improvements. They are 100 percent state grants with no match that will simply go to another county if Wakulla rejects them. These funds are derived from an aviation fuel tax surcharge, which is paid for by purchasers of aviation fuel. Second, the improvements will signi cantly increase safety for both aviators and nearby residents, while reducing noise levels. These are PRECISELY the reasons FDOT Aviation has proposed funding improvements for the Wakulla County airport to the tune of over $3 million in state funding. The county is entitled to a 10-percent administration fee on these grants. Third, the BOCC did not solicit FDOT Aviation, it was a resident of Tarpine that spearheaded the effort some 7 years ago. A tremendous amount of time and effort was spent and now its nally about to pay off. Theres a plan in place that was developed by various professionals and experts in the eld whose job it is to design safe, ef cient, and sustainable airports. Fourth, these improvements will allow the airport to generate signi cant revenue that will more than offset the operating expenses. What other county infrastructure pays for itself? The answer is none. Our parks, boat ramps, piers, library, roads and bridges, buildings, planning and zoning, public safety, etc. all lose money and thats OK. The airport is unique in that it will enjoy generating revenue with hanger rents, access fees, fuel sales, landing fees, and tie down fees. There will be NO burden to the taxpayers of Wakulla County as a condition of BOCC support. Fifth is the direct boost to the local economy from additional visitors and job creation. These may be small or these may be huge, no one really knows at this point. I believe there will be a signi cant increase if well managed. The fact is that in our current economy we should be doing anything and everything possible to help, it sure cant hurt! Sixth, progress and ecology CAN coexist despite what some would have you believe. Im an environmentalist, not radical, but rational environmentalist. I understand very clearly the great need for environmental preservation and mitigation. Having said that, once the project begins every regulation and policy will be fully complied with, especially in light of the intense scrutiny certain to follow. Its interesting to me that the core group of opponents live on Surf Road along the coast and claim negative environmental impacts, yet many have docks with creosoted pilings extending far into our bay. Many run powerboats whose engines exhaust toxic pollutants directly into our bay. They have homes that obstruct the view of our bay and roofs that create runoff directly into our bay. Many have septic systems and have not hooked up to sewer yet. The point is, we have been very tolerant of these things and simply wish they would show just a little tolerance in return. After all, the airport didnt move next to them, they moved next to the airport. Lastly, at the standing room only BOCC workshop held this past Tuesday, July 17, there were hours of debate from both sides. In the end, four of the ve commissioners expressed support for the airport improvements. Only one opposed, Jerry Moore. The county administrator also supports improvements to the airport. If there are a million reasons NOT to support the improvements, there are more than million TO support the improvements. I believe that when four of ve commissioners and administrator agree, its very likely a good decision for Wakulla County. Certainly its how our system is designed to work. I applaud both sides for coming to the workshop and presenting arguments for and against these improvements. Special thanks go to FDOT Aviation, our commissioners, and an administrator who all have the vision and recognize the value of having an improved airport that will bene t future generations of Wakullans. Missing this outstanding opportunity would have been a real travesty. Thank you. Respectfully to all, Steve Fults Panacea Editor, The News: On behalf of the Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee, we sincerely thank all of you who brought clothing to our Headquarters for distribution to the ood victims. Your generosity has directly bene ted the storm victims and their families. The WDEC is glad to be among the organizations that came to the aid of those in need. Due to the generosity of citizens and business owners in the community, our organization was able to deliver clothing that was desperately needed for families that lost everything. The rst load consisted of 18 large bags and two large boxes of clothing for men, women and childrens items. Over 20 bags of clothing and shoes were donated by a local childrens consignment shop. Families were contacted by FEMA to inform them of the availability of the needed clothing and shoes. Nearly all donations were distributed in a few days. Appreciation is also given to the hard working people of our FEMA of ce here in Crawfordville. Joan Hendrix Secretary WDEC Because of a typographical error, the phone number for mosquito control was wrong in the story Aerial spraying for mosquitoes approved that appeared in last weeks News. We regret the error. To contact the countys Mosquito Control department, call 926-0410.Correction

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 Page 5A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper.By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAnother amendment to the Wakulla County Wetlands Ordinance has been brought forward by the county commission. This amendment would allow those lots platted prior to 1995 to be granted a variance by the Planning Department to build within the 40-foot buffer zone. Commissioner Alan Brock proposed the change and said the current ordinance allows for variances, but this would allow them to be approved by the planning director, instead of having to come before the commission. These are variances that should be automatically granted, Brock said. Only those lots platted prior to 1995 would be allowed to go this route and they would still not be allowed to build within the 35-foot buffer closest to the wetland. There are numerous lots in the Shell Point and Spring Creek areas that are unbuildable with the 75-foot buffer in place, Brock said. Brock wanted to see the commission set a size limit on how big the structure can be to have this amendment apply. He suggested 1,200 square feet. If someone wants to build a 10,000 square-foot home, but can build a 9,000 square-foot home and not be within the buffer, they should be required to build the smaller home, Brock said. This would not stop them from obtaining a variance, it just wouldnt go through the easier process, he said. Commissioner Randy Merritt didnt want to include a size limit, but wanted to keep it simple. Brock said the purpose of the amendment was to save staff time and the cost of advertising. However, resident Vic Lambou wondered where the time saving came into play, when staff will still be spending time on granting variances. He also said it would cut out citizen input because the applications would not be required to come before the planning commission or county commission. The commission voted four to one, with Lynn Artz opposing, to direct staff and the county attorney to develop the amendment to bring back before the commission. In other news: The commission voted unanimously to schedule a public hearing for an ordinance allowing the commission to grant economic development ad valorem tax exemptions. These exemptions would apply to new businesses and the expansion of existing businesses. If approved by the commission, it would then need to be approved by the voters in November. Artz suggested the commission prioritize areas where it has said it would like to see development, such as in the Crawfordville town center. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the whole point of the ordinance is that it is countywide and did not want to narrow it to the town center. Artz said she did not want to restrict it to that area, but said there could be different criteria for those who choose to build in that area. To further encourage development where we said we want it, Artz said. But once again, Artz suggestions incorporating the Crawfordville Town Plan were met with opposition and lacked support from the rest of the commission. Exemptions may be granted for up to 100 percent of the assessed value of all improvements to real property made for the use of a qualifying new business and of all tangible personal property of such new business, or up to 100 percent of the assessed value of all added improvements to real property made to facilitate the qualifying expansion of an existing business. Property acquired to replace existing property will not be considered to facilitate a business expansion. The commission voted unanimously to schedule a public hearing. The commission voted to approve the design guidelines of the Wakulla County Bicycle, Pedestrian and Blueways Master Plan. Included in the plan is to connect Crawfordville out to the network, said county consultant, Jon Sewell of Kimley-Horn and Associates. Some of the key components are sidewalks around the Wakulla County Senior Center to Crawfordville and safe routes to Crawfordville Elementary School, COAST Charter School and Wakulla Middle School. Safe pathways and trails to connect with parks and recreational facilities are identified in the plan, as well as interconnectivity with schools, parks and recreation, the St. Marks Trail and potential amenities such as the GF&A and Capital City to the Sea Loop trails are all addressed in the plan. There are also several pathways for canoeing and kayaking included. The plan lists the projects, as well as potential funding sources. There are also design guidelines for sidewalks and signs. In planning and zoning items, the commission voted unanimously to approve the change of zoning from agricultural and rural residential to planned unit development, as well as the application for the preliminary plat to construct the Scenic Stream subdivision on the north side of Zion Hill Road. This subdivision will include 43 single family lots and 102 single family or multi-family units and 37 acres donated to the Wakulla County Historical Society for its Heritage Village Park. Developer Ben Boynton said this all started in December when he heard the historical society was looking for land for its 10 historic homes that were donated by Wakulla County families, the old Smith Creek school house and the old lunch room from Crawfordville to create the park. Im very excited that were able to do this, Boynton said. The historical society can now begin to make plans for the park, he said.COUNTY COMMISSIONVariance to wetlands ordinance for older lots proposedHardship assistance deadline extendedBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanewsnet.Those who missed the original deadline to apply for hardship assistance for the countys solid waste assessment and re MSBU now have until Aug. 15 to do so. The deadline was June 1, but the Wakulla County Commission decided to extend the deadline after hearing from a few residents who said they did not know when the deadline was. Out of eight people who applied late, four would have qualified, Commissioner Lynn Artz said. The solid waste assessment is $196 a year for a dwelling unit. The cost of the re MSBU for residential homeowners is $75 a year, for non-residential it is 6 cents per square foot, for land it is 17 cents per acre. These assessments are added to the property owners tax bill. To qualify for hardship assistance, a family of two must make less than $23,950. For one person that income level is $20,950. For three people it is $26,950. Four-person household is $29,900, veperson is $32,300, six-person us $34,700, seven-person is $37,100 and eight-person is $39,500. Artz said the county also needs to look at better ways of notifying homeowners of the deadline. She suggested working with Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman to include a reminder of the deadline in notices his of ce sends. In order to apply for hardship assistance, property owners must complete the application and file with the County Administrators Of ce for consideration by Aug. 15. The applicant must provide substantive documentation of gross income of all occupants 18 years of age and older.Contact the County Administration Of ce at 9260919 for more information.

Home Bible Courses available please call for details, 96213 By REV. JAMES L SNYDER I just celebrated another birthday, which got me to thinking about the good old days. You can usually tell how old a person is by how many times they refer to the good old days, or the phrase, when I was a youngster. I have come to the conclusion that getting old is not something to be ashamed of in the least. A person reaches a certain age simply because they have not died yet, which is nothing to make a person feel guilty. Although I do not think too much of birthdays, I intend to have as many as possible. Dont get me wrong. I am ready to go when my time is up, but, in the meantime, I am going to enjoy life. My recent birthday got me thinking about the good old days of my youth. Memory is a funny thing. For the most part, we remember the good of our youth and rarely the bad. I often hear some old geezer say, I wish I were 16 again. If their memory was serving them correctly, 16 was not a very good year for any of us. I am glad I have gotten beyond my 16th birthday. As I remember it, it was a terrible year. I can honestly say that the best years of my life are the ones I am living now. Sure, I have some regrets. I have done things I probably should not have done, and I did not do some things I probably should have. If I had to live my life over again not only will I make the same mistakes but also I probably would add to the list quite signi cantly. I do not want to live my life over again. Once is enough for me, thank you. But as I was thinking of those good old days, I could not help but think what I was thinking about back then. It went something like this. When I was in school sitting in Ms. Ammons class, I was daydreaming about going shing. All I could think about was what kind of sh were biting out by the lake this afternoon. Ms. Ammon would call upon me and I would have no idea what she was talking about. In my mind, I was shing. In my body, I was suffering under classititis. It is what students, especially boys, get when they are bored with the class they are in at the time. It involves a lot of jittering. Where was your mind? Ms. Ammon would ask. I hope you werent shing, now, were you? One thing about good ol Ms. Ammon, she could read a boys mind like a book. Maybe because there are so many blank pages in a young boys mind. I would suffer through counting down the hours and minutes and seconds until the school day would end. You did not hear it from me, and this is not a confession, but on those rare occasions when I would skip school and go shing, I had another problem. I was where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do, but then as I threw out the line waiting for a bite all I could think of was what was happening back in school I was missing. I often wondered if Ms. Ammon was missing me. I would smile and then the sh would bite and my attention would be on the task at hand. It was not long before my mind would wander back to the classroom. What were they doing? What was I missing? For the life of me, I cannot understand why, but I could never enjoy shing and when I was playing hooky from school for thinking about what I was missing back in school. One of the advantages of getting older is developing a sense of maturity. Dont ask me to de ne maturity, because I am not quite sure what it really means. As a person matures, he begins to learn how to enjoy the moment. This, I say, comes with age. A lot of age in some instances. By the time you learn to enjoy the moment, it is gone. I have come a long way from good ole Ms. Ammons classroom. I will not tell you how many years it has been, lets just say a lot. I still nd myself doing the same thing. I am in the middle of doing one thing and I begin thinking of what I could be doing. I could be home reading a book. Then when I go home and begin reading, I think about what I could be doing in the of ce. I have tried to take a day off for many years. I just cannot seem to manage it. I take a day off and think of what I really could be doing if I was working. When I am working, I think of how much fun I could have if I was taking the day off. I hope to live long enough to be able to bring these two opposites together in some magni cent activity. I have not gotten there yet. I am aspiring, to be sure. David was right. This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalms 118:24 KJV). The only thing I need to do today is to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net. Special to The NewsThe Wakulla United Methodist Church announced the arrival of their new minister, Pastor Sandra Susie Horner in July. Pastor Horner says she is a true Floridian having been born and raised in Florida. She graduated from Fort Walton Beach High School and Stetson University with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance. It was 10 years ago that God placed a call on my life, said Pastor Horner. Though surprised, Pastor Horner said she began to see that God could make use of what she had made of her life, both the good and the bad. After learning of my appointment to Wakulla UMC, I was humbled to see the history of the church, said Pastor Horner. From its birth until today there is strength of faith and love for the church from the congregation that is amazing. It is my prayer that we can continue to honor its rich history by continuing to live into our faith, continue to reach out to our community and grow Gods Kingdom. According to the church history written by Bruce Nesmith Alford, The church is one of the oldest in the area having been established in the 1800s. In the early 1800s the eastern section of Wakulla County was a very busy place. St. Marks and Newport were large shipping ports with Newport being the county seat. There were many large communities in this area up until the war between the States. How blessed we are to have as our new Pastor, Sandra Susie Horner, said Church Administrative Council Member and Treasurer Clem Bunker. We are already experiencing so much happy and Christ- lled energy and love in her ministry to us. The WUMC has two services each Sunday: a contemporary Service at 8:30 a.m. and a Traditional Service at 11 a.m. The youth meet at 6 p.m. each Sunday. The church is located at 1584 Old Woodville Highway in Wakulla Station. Pastor Horner invites everyone to visit at either service to find a church home.New pastor at Wakulla UMCPastor Susie Horner arrives from Lakeland Pastor Sandra Susie HornerSPECIAL TO THE NEWS 2889C Crawfordville Hwy 850.926.9308 bigbendhospice.org Were Here to Share the Journey...

Memorial for Louise Graddick Eleanor Louise Reddick Braren Graddick, a child of God, went to be with the Lord on June 29, 2012. Louise was a Christian of the Lutheran faith. She was the mother of Ralph, Elma, Buddy and J.B. and Louise, if you please to many. This is a letter in memory of my mother, who has been gone from us for almost a month. I do not know where to send it, so I will post it here and hope that she will know the burden in my heart because of losing her and how much I love her. Mother, you would ask me often if you were a good mother. I would tell you that you are the best, but could never understand why you did not know it. Your loyalty never wavered. You felt love and loyalty to some, but were cast aside and betrayed and abandoned. Still, your loyalty never wavered. You defended and never blamed. In your younger years, you knew much happiness. Later in life, you knew much hardship and sadness, yet you never complained. Instead, you found beauty everywhere, in a weed with a flower at the top, a leaf fallen from a tree in the fall, a wildflower blooming beside the road, a Cardinal splashing in your birdbath, the blue sky, a white puffy cloud, a baby, a child, your beautiful Wakulla River, and the beauty of your azaleas when they were in bloom. Just a week before you left us, you asked me not to abandon you. I told you I never would. On your last day here on earth, just hours after I told you goodnight and you blew kisses to Gene, you left us. I did not know it was time for you to go. I would have stayed and held you in my arms until the Lord came to receive you in his arms and take you home. You wanted family members to be with you. Now you are with our dear family members who have gone before us. I know you are home now and you had to be absent from your body to be with the Lord. Now you are the beautiful memory of my mother, which I will never lose. The life you lived and the love you gave will always be with me. With undying love, Your daughter, Elma With love and gratitude for all you gave to us, from your children, Gene and Elma Cutchin, Buddy and Dianne Braren and J.B. Blanchet.

Tucker Life-Health Insurance, Inc.RATED A+ BY BETTER BUSINESS BUREAUTOP QUALITY COMPANYMEDICARE PLANSExcellent Coverage Anyone Can Afford Ross E. Tucker, Agent Since 1981Chartered Life Underwriter Registered Health Underwrighter850926-2200www.tuckerlifehealth.com By IVANHOE CARROLLAnimal Control DirectorThe shelter for Wakulla Animal Control takes in all animals none are turned away. On Friday afternoon when leaving the shelter at 7 p.m. after an exhausting day, there were 10 5-week-old puppies in the after-hours on-site kennel. All black the hardest color to find homes for since they are so many of them and they are hard to photograph. On Tuesday morning, when we rolled in at 6:30 a.m. there were 20 puppies (16 black and four chocolate) in and around the kennel and three cats. They were so small they could squeeze under the kennel gate. Then two hours later there were two more dogs. This on top of the already full shelter with 40 dogs and 12 cats. The drop box serves a place for the public to drop off found animals and serves as an anonymous avenue for owners to surrender whatever animals they no longer want. Mostly they are dogs and cats but we have received birds, pigs and chickens to name a few. There is a binder with an information sheet that the person can ll out for us. The more information we know about the animal, the better the chances are of nding the owner or nding another home. Sadly, the public thinks that they are ful lling their responsibility by just dropping them off and the Animal Shelter will simply nd them a new home. That is not the case. The unwanted pet population is a big problem in this county and all across the state and the nation. There is a solution, and it is pretty simple. Spay and neuter your animals and you will not contribute to the problem. CHAT of Wakulla handles adoptions for unwanted animals and most of the animals we have for adoption come from Animal Control. This morning we were able to take 10 of the puppies that were dropped off, however, that hardly makes a dent into the problem that Animal Control is facing. At this time, CHAT has a spay/neuter grant for dogs 40 pounds and over. Every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. somebody at the Adoption Center can issue you a free spay/neuter voucher. You even have a choice of veterinary clinics. VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital, Crawfordville Animal Hospital and Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital are participating with this program. The only thing you need is a driver license and your animal has to get a rabies shot at your expense. So, please help us by having your animals spayed/neutered because not all of the puppies that were dropped off will nd a home. If you have to drop off an animal to the shelter there is a better way: First, call the shelter and speak with an of cer. If we have the details and can arrange to get photos then we may nd them a rescue home before they enter the shelter. The shelter is a scary place for any animal. It is cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The new animals are severely stressed as the shelter is loud and smells like 50 different animals. There are few comforts: clean water, ample food and shelter from the elements. There are some luxuries like a soft donated blanket. High stress, an old shelter with cracks in the oor plus all types of contagious diseases results in a hard job to keep our animals healthy. Next, if you have to leave an animal in the drop box, please leave as much information as possible. At a minimum, we need your name and contact information, breed of animal and location found. If you are leaving your own animal, your signature is required or your animal will be treated as a stray and have to be held for the 5-day hold period. In any shelter, space is premium. New animals come in hourly and there is a limited amount of space. The harsh reality is not all animals make it to rescue or find new homes. Animals that are sick, severely injured, too young, too old or have bad behavior issues are humanely euthanized. The saddest part of our job is when a healthy animal is put to sleep only because we cant nd it a place to go. We work hard with 30 different rescue groups and are proud that our euthanasia rate is around 45 percent. With the help of volunteers and a super, hard-working staff we are whittling that percentage even lower. The rate for the shelter only 5 years ago was almost 70 percent. Lastly, help us help the animals. Volunteer, donate, foster. Everyone can do something. Call me at (850) 926-0902 or email at icarroll@mywakulla.com and we can discuss how to get you started on helping the unwanted animals of our county. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO IS SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PET.

FAITH HUGHESVolunteer Medical Director, CHAT of WakullaGizmo was just a scrawny, little, fuzzy, brownish dog. I couldnt even decide what breeds of dog might have come together to produce this little guy. And he faced an uncertain future in October of 2011. Gizmo was homeless and at the CHAT shelter hoping to be adopted. One Sunday morning he was in the fenced play area at CHAT, when the barking of the big dogs scared him so bad that he tried to run away. Unfortunately, the sharp edges at the bottom of the chain link fence caught his skin and tore it in two difference places over his chest. This was the beginning of several surgeries, lots of tests, tons of medications, and the months of hospitalization it took to get Gizmo ready for adoption. He developed severe infections, lost a lot of skin, had reconstructive surgery, had recurring fevers and drainage from his lymph nodes. By Mid-January, all the doctors and technicians at VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital had tried every medication, run every test we could think of, even called specialists for their opinions. Then, to make matters worse, Gizmo was playing in the fenced yard at VCA and he broke his front leg. So now he had a splint, too. Then something short of a miracle happened. Shirley Yates called me about Gizmo. She had read about him in another Tail Wagger article and was interested in fostering him. She and her husband, Randy, even offered to take him to the University of Florida Small Animal Teaching Hospital for a consult. Gizmos luck was changing! And he gets to stay at the Yates home instead of at the animal hospital. In February, the Yates took Gizmo to UF for more tests. The nal verdict was that all of the fevers and drainage were a reaction to the sutures that were used under the skin. The very thing that was needed to x his wounds caused all of these problems. So now, all we had to do was wait for the sutures to absorb naturally. In April 2011, the broken leg had healed, the fevers were gone. The drainage was lessening. But best of all, Gizmo was adopted by Shirley and Randy. Gizmos theme went from, If it werent for bad luck, Id have no luck at all to I will survive! He even got to go to the Rocky Mountains this summer with his new family. I want to thank the multitudes of people who came together to give this scrawny, little, fuzzy brown dog a chance to live. The folks at CHAT who provided him a home when nobody else wanted him. The doctors and staff who work with me at VCA Wakulla Animal Hospitalall of his care was provided for free or just the cost of medications. The many people who donated money to offset the bill from UF Vet School. And most of all. thank you to Shirley and Randy Yates.

Riversprings Middle School missed an A by 9 points and is a B. COAST Charter School earned a C. Wakulla High School does not earn a school grade until other grading factors such as Advanced Placement scores, industry certifications earned and graduation rates are calculated by the state. WHS is on track for an A with the number of FCAT points earned so far compared with last years grade, ODonnell said.School grades: Wakulla gains another AContinued from Page 1A And the number of D and F grades had climbed to 285. But 35 of those schools have apparently been removed by moving from a D to a C, while another seven schools moved from F to D. The grades include elementary and middle schools as well as elementary and middleschool programs at combination campuses. Schools in 40 counties were affected by the grade changes, with Miami-Dade County seeing the most revisions by far at 31. Duval County was second with 19, Pinellas had 18, while Broward, Hillsborough and Orange County each saw 17 schools increase their grades. Other districts that saw their marks go up were Collier, Desoto, Gadsden, Hillsborough, Okeechobee, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco and Union. The grade changes are the latest in a series of problems that have roiled the states school accountability system in recent months. Because of the inclusion of students with disabilities and English language learners, the State Board of Education approved a policy keeping all schools from dropping more than a letter grade. The FCAT itself was snared in a crisis when passing scores on the writing test collapsed from 81 percent to 27 percent for fourth graders and showed similar drops in eighth and 10th grades. The board eventually met in emergency session to lower the passing grade from 4.0 to 3.0 while they develop a long-term answer. And in June, the Florida School Boards Association approved a scathing resolution about the states testing regimen, saying the overemphasis on standardized testing has resulted in a variety of unintended consequences that diminish the quality of the educational program, including sti ing student engagement, narrowing the curriculum, reducing student access to elective and other desired courses, and impeding the recruitment and retention of excellent teachers and administrators.State revises school grades upwardsSpecial to The NewsWorld Experience is looking for three loving, caring families to host Foreign Exchange students for the upcoming school semester or school year.

Ginny Bean, mother of three and publisher of Ginnys catalog, suggests families take advantage of this clean slate by establishing some new organizing routines. Here are some of the top tips: Consider handling as many daytime preparations as possible the night before. Lay out clothes. Pack lunches. Set out the breakfast dishes and cereal. Pack backpacks. Make a habit of sorting through childrens backpacks with them the same day they come home. Allot time after school, when you arrive home from work, or after dinner, depending on your familys schedule. Create a communication hub. Include the family calendar, a chalk or bulletin board for posting messages and reminders, a binder for key documents, colored markers, pens and pencils. If youre a visual person, consider color coding your calendar by assigning each family member a different color. Remember not to forget. Use wall hooks and baskets or bins near the front door to corral the items you need to remember each day: backpacks, books, lunches, gym shoes, sports equipment and musical instruments.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBe aware of pit vipers after the oodWell, talk about raining frogs! Turned out I was visiting a friend when Tropical Storm Debby hit our lovely Wakulla County a few weeks ago and dumped over two feet of rain! So it turned out I failed to experience the deluge. By now the rivers, like the Sopchoppy, have returned basically to their normal level and many of the roadside ditches and other low areas that were also ooded have pretty much had their downpours soaked up by our rather sandy soil. Took us all by surprise, for as you recall the Weather Channel had her path projected to be headed toward New Orleans-Lower Mississippi, but by the time this rain-maker wandered in the opposite direction, it had already soaked our Big Bend. Then all hell broke loose with another foot or more of H2O. Many of you, now that the water is receding, are in the process of tidying up your yard and structures that were ooded, which is very likely a mess of mud and organic debris, as well as rearranged possessions that oated off shelves, etc. May I suggest you watch out for snakes! Ive been in cypress ponds during extra dry periods, where cottonmouth moccasins (which had left nearby ponds that were drying up) had crawled to the only pond around that still had any water, and in a pond no bigger than the average size home there were hundreds. I am NOT exaggerating. In the dry time if you walked around this pond you might see about a dozen. But about dusk out came the others from hollow cypress logs/ knees, etc. to feed on the trapped sh and frogs in the remaining water. They were about every 2-3 feet as we moved along. When collecting for zoos with our headlights at night we had to be extremely cautious. Yet, when tropical rains move in, these vipers and many other species of snakes move out -some possibly even into your yard. Our largest North American venomous snake, the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake (which has on very rare occasions reached up to eight feet in length, and as big around as a humans leg) is one of them. Then there is the Dusky Pygmy Rattler, rarely reaching over two feet, that when coiled in a circle could be covered with a coffee cup. Ive had experiences with three cottonmouths that were ve feet long but that is very rare most are from about 15 inches to two feet. All these are true pit vipers, that is they have a heat detecting pit on each side of their triangular head between the nostril and the eye. The pit distinguishes them from all the harmless snakes in our country.Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHFourteen-year-old Blake Sandifer Campbell of Anderson, S.C., spent a week visiting his grandfather, Larry Harmon, retired manager of Osceola Plantation in Thomasville, Ga. Blake had never been on a real saltwater shing trip and Larry wanted to show him a good time. Major Alan Lamarche of Plantation Security took Blake and Larry out for a few hours of near-shore light tackle shing in Apalachee Bay. Blake caught and released about 50 sea bass. He also caught ounder, shark and almost caught a cobia. Greater amberjack will open for recreational harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1. The season closes annually June 1. The minimum size limit for greater amberjack in Gulf of Mexico waters is 30 inches fork length, which is measured from the tip of the shs closed mouth to the center of the fork in the tail. In Atlantic state waters, the size limit is 28 inches fork length. Recreational anglers may take one sh per person, per day. Reef sh gear rules apply. In Gulf waters, this means anglers must use circle hooks and have a dehooking device and a venting tool on their vessel. These tools increase a shs chance of survival if it is caught and returned to the water. Learn more about greater amberjack by visiting MyFWC.com/Fishing.Greater amberjack season opens Aug. 1SPECIAL TO THE NEWSFirst shing trip Special to The NewsIts the time of the year when children are outside playing and the grill is always sizzling with delicious summer fare. While its nice to be outdoors enjoying the warm weather, its not fun getting stung by one of the seasons most notorious party crashers re ants, wasps, mosquitoes, yellow jackets and hornets. Stinging insects send more than half a million people to the emergency room every year, said Arrow Pest Expert Shay Runion. We have put together a list of the top ve stinging insects likely to be encountered in our area and encourage homeowners to learn more about these potentially dangerous pests. 1. Wasps: Wasps are the most aggressive of the summer stinging insects. They are unique in that they do not need to be provoked to show their aggression, often attacking humans for no apparent reason. 2. Yellow Jackets: Yellow jackets typically create their nests in the ground, attics or basements and a fully developed nest can contain hundreds to thousands of adult yellow jackets. If their nest is disturbed, these insects will vigorously pursue the intruder. 3. Red Imported Fire Ants: Look for fire ants in their signature tall mounds found in landscaped areas, yards or around the foundation of a home. Similar to wasps and yellow jackets, re ants will attack stinging multiple times if their nest is disturbed. 4. Mosquitoes: One of summers most notorious pests, mosquitoes got an early start this year due to the unseasonably mild winter experienced in our area. It only takes mosquitoes 10 to 14 days to develop from an egg into an adult and they will travel up to 14 miles in search of a meal. 5. Hornets: Like wasps, yellow jackets and re ants, hornets are social stinging insects and present a greater threat because they attack in large numbers if they perceive their nest is danger. Hornets most often construct their nests inside hollow tree trunks or buildings but can also build them in the ground or aerial locations. Homeowners should follow these easy steps to prevent stinging insects from ruining their summer fun: Many stinging insects are attracted to sweets so serve sugary drinks in covered pitchers and keep desserts in sealed containers. Make sure all outdoor trash cans have a secure lid Remove sources of standing water, such as old tires, childrens wading pools, birdbaths and saucers of flowerpots. Cut back or get rid of unnecessary vegetation around the home. Seal all cracks around the foundation of the home and ensure all screens are in good repair. If an infestation is suspected, homeowners should contact a licensed pest professional to remove the insects from the property.Dont let insects ruin summer fun the EATIN path OFF Your Guide to Area Restaurants and CateringLassie WilliamsJune 2012 Winner Her name was drawn from I am so appreciative of being the recipient of this nice little gift I so enjoy eating out in Wakulla and I love reading The Wakulla News.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 Page 11AOn 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 no. 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! Next week, Navigation Rule no. 8 steps to take to avoid a collision.

BAY COUNTY Lt. Jay Chesser and Of- cer Nick Price responded around midnight to a call from a female who reported her apparently drunk husband had her three children in a boat on the water somewhere between the Hathaway and Bailey Bridges. The children were calling and texting her for help. Lt. Chesser went to the boat ramp and met with the distraught mother while Officer Price went on vessel patrol. Shortly afterward, the boat arrived at the ramp and three very relieved children were offloaded. The operator refused to perform field sobriety tasks and was arrested for BUI. He was taken to the Bay County Jail where a sample of his breath yielded results of .307/.304. The subject was booked into the jail. Of cers Steve Wicker, Lane Kinney, and Jim Moore responded to a call from the U.S. Coast Guard regarding a boat that was adrift with its engine running and the operator passed out. The operator had been drinking and was taking prescription drugs. The operator failed the eld sobriety tasks and a subsequent breath test yielded results of .128/.115. The operator was booked into the Bay County Jail for operating a vessel while impaired. Of cers Jim Moore, Lane Kinney, and Steve Wicker were on water patrol when they stopped a vessel whose operator displayed signs of impairment. The operator had been drinking and was taking a prescription drug. The suspect failed field sobriety tasks. Investigator Nelson arrived to take the vessel back to the dock as all the occupants had been drinking. The operator refused to submit to a breath sample and was booked into the Bay County Jail for operating a vessel while impaired. Of cer Dennis Palmer made a signi cant break in a case that he and Of cer Nick Price had been working. Several weeks earlier, a baited gator hook had been located on Deer Point Lake, which began the investigation. This week a tip led Officer Palmer back to the area where an elderly woman was acting as a lookout and alerted several individuals who ed into the woods upon his arrival. Located nearby was an 11-foot long alligator, attached to an all terrain vehicle. Evidence indicated the alligator was being butchered at the time of Of cer Palmers arrival. Of cer Nick Price arrived shortly afterward and one subject was located in the woods. Lt. Dennis Welsh and K-9 Of cer Mike Guy arrived and the process of interviewing the witnesses and processing evidence began. The case is ongoing and arrests are forthcoming. JACKSON COUNTY After midnight while on water patrol on the Apalachicola River, Of cer Hank Forehand observed subjects using lights and gigging for sh on the shallow ats. After watching the subjects for some time, Of cer Forehand followed them back to the boat ramp where he made contact and conducted a sheries inspection. The subjects were found in possession of freshly gigged speckled perch and black bass, one of which the subjects attempted to conceal under the bow of their vessel. Citations were issued for taking freshwater game sh by unlawful method. LIBERTY COUNTY Lt. Harry Parker and Of cer Lane Bentley concluded an investigation that began on June 8, when a doe deer was shot and discarded near the Highway 20 Bridge. Two witnesses near the scene gave a general description of the vehicle and driver involved. After checking several vehicles resembling the suspect truck, the of cers received information that the suspects lived in a neighboring county. Lieutenant Parker and Of cer Bentley located the suspects and conducted interviews. Both subjects furnished written statements and were charged with possession of illegal deer. GADSDEN COUNTY Of cer Benjamin Johnson cited a Washington County man near the Jim Woodruff Dam for taking game fish by an illegal method. The subject was observed taking freshwater bream with a cast net.FWC Law Enforcement operations Bones! In April I spoke of the Wakulla Springs Conveyor Belt that may be responsible for the deposition of bones in the front of the Springs cave. But what of its reported pristine (undisturbed) nature? I visited Tracy Revels fascinating book, Watery Eden: A History of Wakulla Springs (2002, Published by the Friends of Wakulla) in my preparation for a survey of local bone rooms. Chapter 6 is a good read regarding the history of Wakulla Springs bone deposits. Following the suppression and removal of the Seminole Indians in 1840, visitors discovered large bones in the basin at Wakulla Springs. A report in 1850 by Sarah Smith attracted the attention of Professor George King of Newport, who began to remove bones in the Springs shallow waters using long handled tongs. All of his samples taken during this time period have subsequently been lost. Over the next 90 years bones were removed from the Spring and put on display in Tallahassee and elsewhere. In 1930 George Christie, then owner of Wakulla Springs, renewed recovery after uncovering bones while constructing the new swim area. He enlisted the help of the Florida Geological Survey to systematically recover the remainder of the bones of the basin. Tongs were not effective for the deeper bones, so they expanded their collecting options to include hard-hat diving, supported from a surface barge. They pried the bones from the substrate, sucking out surrounding embedded debris. All provenience (relational information to other bones and debris) was, of course, lost. George then sent these fossils around North Florida to promote his proposed resort. Ed Ball, residing in Jacksonville, may have become aware of the spring that he later purchased from a display of these fossil bones. Enough bones were pulled during this period to reconstruct a near complete Mastodon skeleton. It was rst displayed at the FGS lab, then the Florida State College for Women in 1940 and nally, where it currently resides, Florida Museum of History in the R.A. Gray Building. Many of the remaining bones collected have shown up in unexpected places including park ower beds and strategically located in the basin to permit visitors riding the glass bottom boat, full view of what must have caused the earliest enthusiastic bone removal. Once purchased by Mr. Ball, the caves were restricted for safety reasons until the mid-1950s. In 1955 Gary Salsman and others working on a lm set were given permission to dive the main vent of Wakulla Spring. For the next three years, and with the assistance of Stan Olsen from FGS, these divers pulled bones and artifacts from the Bone Room. This early team recovered mastodon, mammoth, deer, camel, giant ground sloth, bear and a large number of bone tipped spear points, often oating them out using air- lled pillow cases. They reached a depth of 240 feet and over 900 feet into the cave. Frank Fagan ended the bone recovery in 1961. Engineer Wally Jenkins (of the 1955 team) and scientist Larry Brill continued diving the cave for the next 30 years, until it was purchased by the State of Florida, in an effort to understand the hydrology of the Spring. These two introduced me to Wakulla Springs in 1975. The age of cave exploration has since dominated Wakulla Spring, with dozens of divers passing over what is left in the bone room. Northwest Water Managements current meter that we set in the 1980s remains near the restriction of the room. Guide lines are now tied to massive bones placed on rocks jutting out into the void of large cave passage. An inverted water trough is set into the ceiling. Discarded water sampling tubing, pipes, cables and stage cylinders dot the landscape. The bone room was recently described as looking more like a lunar landing site than a pristine preserve.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Stewart wanted to see the airport remain a grass strip and not be paved, but did want to see it brought up to the Florida Department of Transportation standards. Commissioners Lynn Artz, Alan Brock and Merritt wanted the airport back in compliance and if paving can be paid for through grant funding, they were in support of that as well. One of the major safety concerns is the building and hangar that encroach the safety zone. The building that now houses La Cantina Grille is 50 feet within the primary surface area, which is the area surrounding the landing area. Since the county does not own that building, it cannot remove it, so a shift of the runway is necessary. There is also a 13-acre hangar parcel that has one hangar that was constructed in 2006 too close to the primary surface area. In order to have its license extended the runway must be moved over about 35 feet to the west and widened. The runway length would be extended from 2,800 feet to 2,972 feet. Weve got to do something, Stewart said. Weve got to get off the fence post. In order to move the runway, the county will have to acquire property to the west. Originally included in the Airport Layout Plan was some property south of Surf Road. Some of the land acuqisitions were met with oppositions, so these have been removed from the Airport Layout Plan. No property will be acquired without approval from the homeowner, said Airport Manager Steve Fults. Im not willing to take anybodys property, Merritt said. But if someone wants to sell their property and DOT is willing to buy it, then it should move forward. The county has received a grant for $75,000, that does not require a match, and was intended to be used originally on runway lighting, however, the money would now be used on property appraisals, update the airport layout plan if needed and peform an environmental impact study. If there is any money left over, it will be used to purchase property. Stewart was concerned about possible requirements or stipulations from DOT that may come after the county accepts the grant funding. Several residents also expressed concern over county expenses at the airport increasing once the grant money is accepted and the taxpayers having to foot the bill. The operation costs are a drain on county resources, Mills said. With taking all this money comes a great liability. County Administrator David Edwards said the one stipulation with the grant from DOT is that the airport must remain operational for 20 years. Stan Brown, who was against the airport improvements, said, You have been courting that airport for years. Now youre going to decide whether you want to marry it. Commissioner Jerry Moore, the sole commissioner who said he was not in favor of improving the airport, said he did not feel comfortable agreeing to the grant because DOT could come back with new requirements, costing the county money. I dont trust the government, Moore said. Edwards said DOT is actually shrinking down regulations, he said. Plus, the county airport will never be a major airport and have jet planes. It will be what it will be, Edwards said. Those in favor of the improvements have said that the airport can be self-sustaining with the use of DOT grant funding and could make money. The fees charged to use the airport will be used to maintain the airport, Edwards said. And the county will make a point to do a better job of collecting those fees, he said. The current budget for the airport is $4,000 and $6,000 has been budgeted for the upcoming scal year, Edwards said. The future plans for the airport could include the addition of several hangars and a service fuel farm, which would bring extra revenue, said John Russell, the former airport manager. Those in opposition pointed out the Apalachicola Municipal Airport, which has accepted $7 million in grant funding since 2006 and has seen a large increase in expenses. In 2010-11, the airport nally broke even, Brown said. Fults said there was no comparison between the Apalachicola airport and the Wakulla County Airport. Its apples and orangutans, Fults said. Fults pointed out that the Quincy Municipal Airport was more of a realistic comparison. Janice Watson, with the Quincy airport, said they spent grant money updating the airport and expenses have increased, but the airport is sustaining. Their revenue comes from fuel and hangars. Watson said they have 60 hangars and 25 people are on the wait list. They are adding 12 more hangars soon. Some concerns were also expressed about the flight path once the runway is moved, but if an airplane was or was not ying over someones property now, 35 feet wont change it. Thirty- ve feet doesnt make a hill of beans, Edwards said. Currently, the airport covers 13.16 acres and contains a northsouth turf runway, with no taxiways or ramp space, as well as no public facilities for parking. The county was given the airport in the 60s by Fenton Jones under the condition that it remain an airport. The Tarpine Fly-in community was developed in the mid80s and the residents have been taking care of the maintenance. They established a Wakulla County Airport Association in 2001. An airport advisory committee was created this year to help manage the airport. This committee will not make decisions, but will offer recommendations to the county commission. No formal decision was made about the future of the airport at the workshop, but it was clear there would be enough votes from commissioners to go ahead with the improvements. Edwards and his staff are coming up with an action plan and plans to nd out if any strings, besides the 20-year operational agreement, are attached to the grant funding.Sides square o over airportBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 18 The payoff may be years away, but Florida stakeholders are already coordinating efforts to make sure the state gets its share of BP oil spill compensation in what could be the largest Gulf restoration effort in history. Two weeks after President Barack Obama signed the RESTORE Act into law, organizations that are traditional opponents of each other are working toward the same goal of securing billions of dollars from the company for damage done by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which sent nearly 4 million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf. It was the worst such spill in U.S. history. Calling it an unprecedented opportunity to use private money for public good, environmental supporters say it should be used to restore and purchase strategic parcels of environmentally sensitive lands from willing sellers in the Big Bend and along the eight-county region most severely impacted by the spill. We have an opportunity to do some of the large-scale projects that have been put off by the tight budget, said Preston Robertson, vice president and general counsel for the Florida Wildlife Federation. This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to protect these coastal ecosystems. Business groups, meanwhile, say project selection should also be based on how it plays into regional efforts to bolster the economic viability of the region, by shoring up commercial shing, tourism and other coastal industries. The tourism and hospitality industry is the driving force in Floridas economy and it was tremendously compromised after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, said Carol Dover, president and CEO of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. Signed into law July 6, the RESTORE Act earmarks 80 percent of penalties paid by BP under the Clean Water Act to establish a trust fund to support restoration programs in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida and Texas, the ve coastal states affected by the spill. The company could be on the hook for up to $21 billion in penalties and nes. Of cials estimate revenues owing into the RESTORE trust fund at between$4 billion and $16.8 billion. The plan calls for taking 35 percent of the trust fund and divvying it up equally between the ve states. Additional funds will be dispersed based on proposals to restore ecosystems, fisheries, marine and wildlife habitats, beaches, barrier islands, dunes and coastal wetlands. Panhandle of cials say now that the agreement has been signed, they will begin setting up review processes to evaluate programs and provide the justi cations needed to compete successfully for limited funds. Each of the counties has to come up with a multi-year plan to address restoration, said Lane Lynchard, Santa Rosa County Commissioner. That is going to require a lot of public input. We starting the process now of setting up a board to review that input. Business groups have been organizing since the spill to secure state money and help local businesses and workers access it through the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. They hope to build on that cooperation and expand efforts to rejuvenate the economy, which is so closely tied to the health of the Gulf. Speci c projects ready to go include expanding the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla County and habitat improvements in Apalachicola Bay. We have been meeting with our partners in Florida to lay out a list of projects that we think are tied into Gulf restoration, Robertson said.Groups ready for BP money ght 2012-2013 BUDGET SUMMARY DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD OF WAKULLA COUNTY THE PROPOSED OPERATING BUDGET EXPENDIT URES OF THE SCHOOL BOARD OF WAKULLA COUNTY ARE 0.6% MORE THAN LAST YEAR'S TOTAL OPERATING EXPENDITURES REQUIRED LOCAL EFFORT (including Prior 5.4380 BASIC DISCRETIONARY OPERATING 0.7480 Period Adjustment Millage) DISCRETIONARY CRITICAL NEEDS-OPERATING 0.2500 BASIC DISCRETIONARY CAPITAL OUTLAY 1.5000 DEBT SERVICE (VOTED) 0.5500 TOTAL MILLAGE 8.4860SPECIAL DEBT CAPITAL ENTERPRISE Revenues GENERAL REVENUE SERVICE PROJECTS FUNDSFederal 593,442.00 4,505,794.77 State Sources 25,297,047.00 24,057.00 129,850.00 314,731.00 Local Sources 7,767,392.00 694,612.00 638,994.01 1,742,710.93 105,450.00 TOTAL REVENUES 33,657,881.005,224,463.77768,844.012,057,441.93105,450.00 Transfers In 740,725.00 Other Financing Sources FUND BALANCES (July 1, 2012) 4,425,284.00 448,579.14 66,176.45 3,305,617.13 22,719.10 TOTAL REVENUES AND BALANCES 38,823,890.005,673,042.91835,020.465,363,059.06128,169.10 PROPOSED MILLAGE LEVY Expenditures Instruction 20,053,392.90 1,907,840.30 Pupil Personnel Services 1,692,101.63 131,683.00 Instructional Media Services 502,434.05 Instructional & Curriculum Development Services 688,732.23 337,603.85 Instructional Staff Tr aining 154,246.00 498,508.13 Instructional Related Technology 268,035.58 23,595.06 Board of Education 595,435.53 General Administration 348,891.04 300,499.00 School Administrati on 2,174,391.63 1,400.96 Facilities Acquisition Constr uction 106,352.23 4,622,334.06 Fiscal Services 374,641.72 Food Service 1,084.88 2,106,720.00 Central Services 603,191.28 7,152.00 105,450.00 Pupil Transportation Services 2,590,715.02 9,605.00 Operation of Plant 4,323,817.68 Maintenance of Plant 976,057.50 Administrative Technol ogy Services 164,508.37 Community Services 4,081.73 Debt Services 0.00 779,492.50 TOTAL EXPENDITURES 35,622,111.005,324,607.30779,492.504,622,334.06105,450.00 Transfers Out 740,725.00 FUND BALANCES (June 30, 2013) 3,201,779.00 348,435.61 55,527.96 22,719.10 TOTAL EXPENDITURES, TRANSFERS, & BALANCES 38,823,890.005,673,042.91835,020.465,363,059.06128,169.10 THE TENTATIVE, ADOPTED, AND/OR FINAL BUDGET ARE ON FILE IN THE OFFICE OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED TAXING AUTHORITY AS A PUBLIC RECOR D.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 Page 13ABy JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 24 An appeals court Tuesday ruled against Attorney General Pam Bondi in a long-running battle about the Legislatures attempt last year to privatize prisons across southern Florida. The 1st District Court of Appeal rejected Bondis appeal of a circuit court ruling that blocked the privatization plan from going forward. A three-judge panel ruled against Bondi on a procedural issue saying she did not have the authority to le the appeal after the original state party in the case, the Department of Corrections, declined to do so. The secretary of the Department of Corrections, against whom the nal declaratory and injunctive judgment was actually entered (in circuit court), has not appealed, Tuesdays opinion said. Like any other non-party in the trial court, the attorney general lacks standing to initiate an appeal on her own. The decision was a victory for the Florida Police Benevolent Association, which led the lawsuit last year after lawmakers included the privatization plan in budget ne print, known as proviso language. Leon County Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford ruled that it was unconstitutional to use proviso language to direct the changes, which would have privatized 29 prison facilities. This ruling (Tuesday) reaf rmed our argument that the attorney general did not have the authority to appeal the lower courts decision, Matt Puckett, the Florida PBAs executive director, said in a prepared statement. This was never more than the Legislatures last-second attempt to privatize public prisons in South Florida. A spokeswoman for Bondi said the attorney general led the appeal at the request of the Legislature. We respectfully disagree with the courts decision to dismiss the appeal, said the spokeswoman, Jenn Meale. Regardless of the appeals-court ruling, the privatization plan was already all but dead. The proviso language expired June 30 with the end of the states 2011-12 scal year; lawmakers also failed in a separate attempt to pass a privatization plan during this years legislative session. In a concurring opinion Tuesday, Judge Ronald Swanson cautioned that the decision did not resolve the broader question of whether lawmakers could make such policy changes in proviso language. Also, he wrote that the decision should not be construed as a limit on Bondis power to represent the state in lawsuits. This case does not serve as a precedent to limit or curtail the power of the attorney general, Swanson wrote. It is a well-settled principle of common law --a principle embodied by statutes --that the attorney general has broad authority to represent the people of Florida. Nonetheless, the attorney general has to follow the procedural rules; something she failed to do here. Bondis of ce represented the Department of Corrections in the circuit-court case, but the department declined to challenge Fulfords ruling. The attorney general nevertheless moved forward with the appeal, which her of ce said at the time was done at the request of the Legislature. Bondis of ce did not seek approval from the circuit court to formally intervene in the case, a move that the appeals court focused on during arguments in June. Not having moved to intervene as a party below, the attorney general lacked authority to initiate an appeal, appeals-court Chief Judge Robert T. Benton wrote for the panel. We are therefore without jurisdiction to review the trial courts judgment, and the appeal must be dismissed.Special to The NewsST. PETERSBURG, July 24 Progress Energy Florida, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, is urging customers be on alert for a new utility bill payment scam affecting customers across the country. Under the scam, customers are receiving a call informing them their electric service is scheduled for immediate disconnection and they should make a payment by purchasing a Green Dot Pak card at a local drug or convenience store. Progress Energy has received reports of customers who have been contacted about this scam in both its Carolinas and Florida service territories. The Green Dot Pak card is a temporary pre-pay credit card that requires a registration process. After the customer purchases the card, he or she is instructed to call the fraudulent party back to make a payment. The customer is instructed to provide a receipt number and PIN number. Once that information is obtained, the money on the card is then transferred to the fraudulent party. Progress Energy does not contact customers to obtain personally identi able information. In addition, the company encourages customers and others that y receive a call that their electric service is scheduled for immediate disconnect, they should call law enforcement and report the attempted fraud. Any homeowner in doubt about the identity of someone claiming to be a Progress Energy employee should call Progress Energys customer service center (1.800.700.8744 in Florida). Customers contacted by phone, email, or through other channels can callthe same number.Special to The NewsThe rst August Full Moon Climb at the Cape St. George Lighthouse on St. George Island will be held on Thursday, August 2, 2012.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 Page 15ACourt shortsBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA former Wakulla County Board of County Commission employee has led a lawsuit against the county, challenging her dismissal was the result of racial discrimination. Deanna Green was hired in July 2009 by the county as a planning technician in the Planning and Community Development Department. The lawsuit notes that she was the only black employee in her unit. In July 2011, her pay was cut, which Greens lawsuit alleges was intended to persuade her to resign her position. She did not. Shortly thereafter, she was told she was being laid off because of budget cuts and she was the last employee hired in the department. She claims she was not the last employee hired, and that her dismissal was related to her living in Midway. The county represented that she was being red for performance problems. The lawsuit contends Green was the victim of racial discrimination. The lawsuit was filed July 19 in Wakulla Circuit Court. Green is being represented in the lawsuit by Tallahassee attorney Marie Mattox. In other court matters: Wakulla fishermen were back in court last week, asking that their lawsuit against the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission be allowed to move forward. Local shermen Ronald Fred Crum, Keith Ward, Jonas Porter and Richard Van Munster were at the Leon County Courthouse on Monday, July 16, to hear oral arguments on whether Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford should grant a motion for summary judgment for the state or allow the case to go to trial at the end of August. The shermen contend that FWC rules requiring two-inch stretch mesh net in seine nets violates the constitutional amendment that limited net fishing the so-called net ban because the small mesh catches juvenile mullet and small gamefish, none of which are legal and which die in the meshes. Attorney Ron Mowrey, who represents shermen, argued at the hearing that causing shermen to use small-mesh nets for mullet shing violates the purpose of the amendment, which is to stop over shing and waste of marine resources. Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Glogau, representing FWC, told the court that all these matters have been litigated several times since the passage of the amendment in 1994 and its implementation in 1995. Fishermen have challenged the legality of the two-inch rule and lost, repeatedly, never getting past the First District Court of Appeal. The two-inch rule was first promulgated by the Marine Fisheries Commission, the precursor of the FWC, as a means of implementing the amendment. As a means of protecting the marine resources, the amendment outlawed gill and entangling nets and limited seine and cast nets to 500 square feet. The problem is, there really wasnt a clear how to differentiate between what is a gill net or a seine net. So the MFC created a de nition of a gill net as a something that catches sh primarily by gilling, outlawed mono lament, and created the two-inch rule, saying mesh size larger than that is a gill net. One fact all sides agree on it, and have for years, is that all nets gill. But shermen claim that the smaller mesh nets gill smaller fish especially juvenile mullet and other game sh in the shallows where the mullet are typically caught. They claim as much as 98 percent of what they catch is bycatch not legal size mullet. Nets with larger mesh catch larger, legal-size mullet and allow the smaller sh to escape, shermen claim. Judge Fulford did not rule on the motion for summary judgment, but she did recently deny a motion to dismiss the case from the state, which relied on much the same grounds that the case has already been decided in previous lawsuits. In a criminal trial on Tuesday, July 24, Anthony Mills was found not guilty by a jury of a charge of lewd and lascivious acts on a minor. Mills got a judgment of acquittal on another charge of encouraging lewd acts by a minor. Mills, 20, was one of several young men in the back seat of a car with an underage girl who was reportedly dirty dancing when law enforcement arrived on the scene. Mills was represented by Crawfordville attorney Steven Glazer. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno. A lawsuit to foreclose on property at Shell Point known as Shell Point Sanctuary was led on July 5 by a group called CADC/RADC Venture 2011-1. The subject property in the lawsuit includes numerous lots in Snug Harbor. The lawsuit claims that an August 2003 note for $1 million has been defaulted on by Shell Point Sanctuary LLC. It also alleges a breach of personal guaranty by Robert Routa, William McArthur, and William T. Gaupin, who personally guaranteed the note.Special to The NewsA 40-year-old Crawfordville man faces four charges including attempted murder in connection with a physical disturbance reported at midnight Monday, July 23, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. Bryan Frederick Braswell was arrested for attempted murder, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and sexual assault after a 51-year-old female victim reported being beaten by the suspect. Investigators were called to the home of the victim south of Crawfordville and discovered her on the front porch of her residence in severe pain. Deputy Nick Gray, Sgt. Ronald Mitchell and Deputy Scott Powell arrived at the home and tended to the victim along with Wakulla EMS. Deputy Powell stationed himself behind the home and discovered evidence that the suspect was hiding in a wooded area behind the home. Braswell was detained without incident. During the investigation phase, the victim reported that she came to the residence to pick up some of her belongings. Once arriving at the residence, Braswell threw belongings at the victim striking her in the face. The victim was also punched and kicked by the suspect before being dragged into the home by her hair. Once inside the home the suspect sat on top of her and placed his hands around her neck and threatened to kill her. The victim attempted to call 911 when the suspect grabbed the phone and attempted to sexually force it inside the victim. After briefly escaping the suspect, the victim was grabbed by the hair again and thrown to the oor. The suspect eventually let the victim go and she called law enforcement to the scene. After originally declining medical attention, the victim was transported to the hospital by Wakulla EMS. Tallahassee Police Department of cials are also investigating an altercation that occurred the previous day in a pharmacy in their jurisdiction which involved the suspect and victim. Braswell slapped a phone out of the victims hand at the store and store employees called 911. Braswell ed the scene when he realized law enforcement had been contacted.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA miniature version of the popular food-based reality show competition, Cupcake Wars was held on July 19 and pitted ve new bakers against each other. All were hoping for the coveted title of Cupcake War Champion. The bakers were enrolled in a baking camp at the Donut Hole and were students of co-owners Brandy Jackson and Kyle Beckett. During the week-long camp, students, Madelyn and Robert Montpellier, Audrey Jackson, Danyelle Dias and Kolbie Jones learned how to make fondant, icing, decorations, cakes and cupcakes, all from scratch. On Thursday, the campers compete in cupcake wars. Everybody is so into Cupcake Wars, says Jackson. So they decided to hold their own mini-version of it. They really enjoy it, she said. The campers must come out with their own recipe and decorations for the cupcake. Monday through Wednesday, the campers are taught how to make the cake, decorations and fondant. They have three days to think about their cupcake, Beckett says. Then on Thursday, they must come up with the avor for their cupcake and begin mixing and creating. Beckett says they are given a basic recipe for the tip of cupcake they want to make. Then they are on their own, Beckett says. The only thing they do help with is the baking. The kids are not allowed to use the oven. The cupcakes are judged on decoration and taste and a winner is announced for each. Youd be amazed by some of the avors, Beckett says. There are surprises in each of them, delightful surprises. Some of the avors included hummingbird, chocolate with sprinkles inside, vanilla with pineapple chunks, red velvet with raspberry lling and strawberry cake with cherry icing. The hardest part was coming up with ideas, says camper Madelyn Montpellier, who created the vanilla cupcake with pineapple chunks. Montpellier says she likes fruit and picked pineapple because its her favorite. Judges Jim Watson, Julie Watson and Lonnie Frederick critiqued and tasted the cupcakes while the students waited in the back room for the results. The judges were impressed by each cupcake placed before them and applauded the creativity of the young bakers. Theyre all excellent, Frederick says. The judges are picked at random and have included members of Jacksons church, loyal customers and business acquaintances. When it came down for the judges to make a decision, they went with the vanilla cupcake with pineapple chunks for best taste citing the moistness of the cake and great avors. It will literally melt in your mouth, Frederick says of the winner. It had that extra zing. The judges chose a cupcake made by Dias for best decorated cupcake. Her cupcake had three star shaped decorations in blue, yellow and purple on top. Jim Watson says he liked the complexity of the decoration and all the bright colors. The judges also enjoyed the Cupcake War Junior Champion Jones cupcake. Jones is 5-yearsold and required some help from the teachers on her cupcake, but Beckett says she came up with the idea and mixed all the ingredients and decorated the cake on her own. Her cupcake was signi cantly bigger than the other cupcakes. I like the fact that its a super-sized cupcake, says Jim Watson. Thats my kind of cupcake.

A state and FEMA specialist will conduct the meetings to discuss damages, needs assessment and to develop a plan of action. After this meeting, applicants will have 60 days to submit required paperwork to FEMA. The purpose of this assistance is to help the applicant respond to and recover from a disaster, said Joyce Watters, public assistance coordinator at the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Once the applicant has submitted their paperwork, a state and FEMA team will be assigned to them to develop a detailed project list. All projects must be located in the disaster area, sustained damage from the disaster and must not receive any federal aid. FEMA does not reimburse for federal aid roads, Watters said. There are two types of projects, emergency and permanent. And the whole idea is to restore it to pre-disaster conditions, Watters said. The seven categories for public assistance funding are: A: Debris Removal B: Emergency Protective Measures (search and rescue, emergency levees, safety barricades and signs, emergency road repairs) C: Road Systems and Bridges D: Water Control Facilities E: Public Buildings and Contents F: Public Utilities (gas, water, irrigation, sewer) G: Parks, recreational and other facilities Some types of projects include debris removal, repairing or replacing damaged buildings and infrastructure, search and rescue, increased security and overtime pay for employees. It deals mostly with things that have been broken, Watters said. A small project is considered less than $66,400, she said. Projects more than that are considered large projects and are paid based on the actual costs, determined after completion. Public assistance grants may reimburse up to 75 percent of the cost of the project. Typically, the state and county split the remaining 25 percent. According to Watters, mitigation projects are not included in the FEMA public assistance. However, the county would be eligible for mitigation grants. The county has one such project. The repairing of Bostic Pelt Bridge, which remains closed. The county does not have its estimates and project list complete, so a kick off meeting has not yet been held. However, the initial damage estimate was $12.2 million, according to County Administrator David Edwards.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 Page 3B Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate LifeJuanita Jester has attended the Senior Center regularly since January 2011. Everytime I walk through the dining room, I see her smiling. Her smiles appear to be lled with compassion. Recently, on a Saturday morning we both found enough free time to discuss her life and help me know more about her. Ms. Jester was born in Kentucky in 1932. She was the oldest of ve children. In the fth grade her family moved to Ohio for her dads new job with Armstrong. When Ms. Jester was 13 her mother became employed by the same company. This added extra responsibilities for raising the younger children. After high school she worked at an insurance company until she was married at age 20. She raised ve children, two daughters and three sons. When the youngest was 3 months old her husband left. Three years later she enrolled at Wright State University in Ohio. She received a degree in elementary education and taught school three years. She learned that she could not support a family of ve children on her teaching salary. She became employed by General Motors until she retired. In 2008 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After surgery she was treated with chemotherapy and radiation. After the treatments she moved in with her sister and experienced depression for almost a year because of the medications. She scrubbed floors, cleaned garbage cans, or any busy work to take her mind off her depression. In January 2011 she moved to Crawfordville to be near her youngest daughter. She immediately asked neighbors about a senior center. She found the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center. She had been in other senior centers before but none were like this. She has so many new friends here and recently moved into the Senior Apartments next door. She is a happy lady and you would know this if you saw her smile. Continued on Page 4BA smile of compassion with Juanita JesterBy TAMARA BYRNES and DIANE LANTERof the Senior CenterSchool is out, the weather is VERY hot and the Senior Center is the place to be to stay cool and have lots of summer fun. We had a great Summer Fun Party with games, prizes and lots of cotton candy. The seniors had made beautiful summer hats and wore them proudly. Everyone had loads of fun and lots of hot dogs and hamburgers! The children in the Before and After School Program, are here at the center on Tuesdays and Fridays. Field trips are scheduled Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. This is a great program for the kids and seniors to be able to interact together. It takes us back to our younger years and how much has changed. As we see the children using the computers we realize times have really changed; then we see them outside playing games and running through the sprinklers, I guess things havent really changed that much after all. We celebrated Flag Day with lots of red, white and blue and ags ying all over the dining room. The seniors were colorful in their array of stars, stripes and decorative clothing. We are a generation of patriots and the pictures, memorabilia, colors and songs, bring tears to our eyes. We are thankful to be living in America and having an active Senior Center in Wakulla County. We were proud to honor our Fathers on Friday. We presented them with colorful handkerchiefs and they promptly tied them around their heads, tied them around their necks, stuck them in their shirt pockets, and one gentleman tied his to the microphone, while he played his guitar. It was a fun day. Gov. Rick Scott declared June 15, Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Purple was the color for the event and purple ribbons were given to all seniors. Combating abuse of older people will help improve the quality of life for all seniors across the state and will allow seniors to continue to live as independently as possible, adding to their lives and vibrancy. If you would like to have a copy of the awareness proclamation from Gov. Scott, stop by the Senior Center and pick one up.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 3BThe most fascinating part of our discussion was the fact that she was born with one hand. The doctors told her parents that she lost her left arm just below the elbow because of her umbilical cord. She was so open discussing this issue. She has always lived with one hand and has never recognized any limitations that resulted from this. When her children were small, they had only cloth diapers. She always noticed that the diapers pinned on her children were better fitted and tighter than on any other children. She said that she has considered how life would be with two hands and it seemed that an extra hand on her left arm would be awkward and clumsy and would not allow her to carry on with her regular activities. It would just be in the way. Her smiles of compassion have always had a strong positive influence on those around her. But reflecting on my preconceived notions about her limitations has reinforced the concept that we all have differences and that is OK. I gained so much from this discussion.R.H. Carter is the executive director of the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center.A smile of compassion with Juanita JesterContinued from Page 3BA pet will be chosen to come to the center to visit with the seniors and be available for adoption. This will be a good time to view one up close and personal. Thank you, CHAT, for the work that you do. A visitor that we could have done without was Tropical Storm Debby. As a general rule in Wakulla County we all are so happy to see the rain come but in this case it just wouldnt stop! Many seniors were affected and are still going through the after-effects of the storm. Ms. Win Conger brought me in a short story that she wrote and I felt very strongly about sharing it. Someone told me a long time ago to be careful what you wish for because you are liable to get it. One of the things I wished for was a home on the waterfront. Now I have it in the back and on both sides. In fact I am completely surrounded 360 degrees with 15 inches of rain water. I began wishing for help from my neighbors and received it in so many ways. My power and phone were out, but neighbors waded in and brought food and finally convinced me to leave my home. Tropical Storm Debby opened my eyes and I am now a happy camper! Ms. Conger is only one of the many seniors affected by the storm waters and we need to understand that many people are still trying to recover. We send our blessing out to all the storm victims. If you need referral help with storm related problems, the center would be glad to help you out. Monthly Activity Calendars are available at the center. We have a new website and you will be able to see our schedule and pictures too. The site is currently being updated but should be fully functioning very soon. The address is www.wakullaseniorcitizens.com. Let us know if you have any comments or suggestions. We are located at 33 Michael Drive in Crawfordville and the phone number is (850) 9267145.By SHELLY HOMANOf ce ManagerThe Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center has an upgraded website.

Senior Center has upgraded website Special to The News Local senior care experts are urging Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla County families to be alert for scammers who may be targeting their senior loved ones with a variety of clever cons that could jeopardize not only their life savings, but their independence. Scam artists are speci cally targeting seniors, because they are the fastestgrowing segment of the population, which has led to increased demands on law enforcement agencies, said Scott Harrell, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care of ce in Tallahassee serving seniors in Christian Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla counties, as well as the Panhandle. This scenario has the potential to put more local seniors than ever at risk of losing their life savings, their homes and their trust in others. As a result, the non-pro t National Association of Triads and the local Home Instead Senior Care of ce have launched a public information program to educate families and seniors about how to protect themselves. The Protect Seniors from Fraud program developed with the expert assistance of the Triads provides family caregivers with a number of important tools at ProtectSeniorsFromFraud. com. Included in the websites various resources is a Criminal Target Scale, which can help family caregivers assess how likely their senior is to be the potential target of a scam. According to experts, the top three crimes targeting seniors are identity theft, Medicaid/Medicare and medication fraud, and nancial exploitation. The annual nancial loss by victims of elder nancial abuse is estimated to be at least $2.9 billion, a 12 percent increase since 2008. Making these con artists difficult to capture is the lack of reporting a recent AARP study found that only 25 percent of victims over age 55 have reported to authorities that theyve fallen for a scam To obtain a free Senior Fraud Protection Kit, contact the local Home Instead Senior Care of ce at (850) 297-1897.Program aims to protect seniors from scams Phone 926-8245926-2396As always, client service is our ultimate priority.

Special to The NewsThe annual Tour de France bike race in Europe is one of the ultimate tests of strength, endurance and tenacity. Just completing the race is a life accomplishment for most riders. But recently scientists who have been studying the effects of biking on the brain and body have found biking can improve brain health as well as having physical bene ts. With a daily 30 minute bike ride of medium intensity, you can improve your mood and wellbeing, and most importantly, reduce stress. Just like the heart, the brain needs to be active and t to perform at optimum levels. HAVE HELMET, WILL TRAVEL Biking has been found to be one of the most effective ways to improve your physical health. Its an easy, low impact exercise and can be adjusted to your own tness level. Riding a bike regularly may have many benefits that were just beginning to understand. One thing that is known is that biking, like other aerobic activities, helps to stimulate the brain, and reduce the burden of stress. One concentrated study at Tohoku University in Japan looked at motorcycle use and its the effects on the brain. They studied Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans and found that riding activates prefrontal areas of the brain. These prefrontal areas are stimulated as the brain zips signals to the body to steer the bike. Their Department of Functional Brain Imaging found that riding helps keep drivers young by invigorating their brains. The study found an area called the bilateral prefrontal cortex (PFC) was activated while riding. When these areas are simulated, they positively affected cognitive functions, stress reduction, memory, and concentration. These studies also suggest similar results will be found with bike riders. It is common knowledge that inactivity, lack of exercise or poor sleep can lead to feeling a low level of energy or mental stamina.

My 78-year-old dad loves to play golf, but arthritis in his hands makes griping the club dif cult. He also has a hard time bending over to tee up or retrieve the ball. Is there anything out there that can help? Helpful Son Dear Helpful, There are actually a number of gol ng gadgets and accessories on the market today that can help older golfers who struggle with arthritis, injuries or loss of mobility. Here are some possible solutions that can help keep your dad on the golf course. Gripping Helpers: Gripping a golf club is a very common problem for seniors with arthritis or those who have hand or elbow injuries, or any condition that affects their hand strength. To help alleviate this problem there are specially designed golf gloves and grips that can make a big difference. Depending on the severity of your dads problem, an inexpensive option to check out is the Bionic Golf Gloves (bionicgloves.com, 877-524-6642) which are ergonomically designed to improve grip with less effort. Or the Power Glove (powerglove.com, 800-836-3760) that uses a Velcro strap to secure the club to your hand. These gloves run between $20 and $30. Another option to consider is to get oversized grips installed on your dads clubs. These can make gripping the club easier and more comfortable, and are also very good at absorbing shock. Oversized grips are usually either onesixteenth-inch or one-eighth-inch larger in diameter than a standard grip, and cost around $5 to $10 per grip. Your local golf pro can help with this. Or, for a grip-and-glove combination x, check out the new Quantum Grip (quantumgrip.com, 855-692-3784) that incorporates hook Velcro golf grips and companion golf gloves that have mating loop Velcro material in the palm. This insures gripping power and prevents the club from slipping in your hand. The price: $30 per grip or $189 for a set of seven, plus $40 per glove. Bending Solutions: If back, hip or knee problems or lack of exibility is also hampering your dad on the golf course, there are a number of innovative gadgets that can eliminate the bending and stooping that comes with teeing up the ball, repairing divots, marking the ball on the green, retrieving a ball or tee on the ground, and picking a club, sand rake or ag stick up off the ground. These stoop-proof devices run anywhere from a few dollars up to $70 and can be found at sites like Kool Tee (kooltee.com, 800-324-6205), Tee Pal (teepalpro. com), and the Uprightgolf company (uprightgolf.com, 319-268-0939). Ergonomic Golf Carts: There are also a number of great ergonomic golf carts that can help older golfers who still like to walk the course. These are three or four-wheeled, lightweight push carts that provide great stability, can be adjusted to t your body size, and fold into a compact size in a matter of seconds for easy transport. Sun Mountain Sports (sunmountain. com), Bag Boy (bagboycompany.com) and Caddytek (caddytek.com) are three companies that make these type of carts at prices ranging anywhere from $130 to around $200. Or, for seniors with severe mobility loss or who are disabled, theres the SoloRider golf cart (solorider.com, 800-898-3353) that provides the ability to play from a seated position. Retailing for $9,450, this cart is lightweight and precisely balanced so it can be driven on tee boxes and greens without causing any damage. And federal ADA laws require that all publically owned golf courses allow them. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Medicare turns 46 on July 30, and oh, how it has changed throughout the years. One landmark event for Medicare, as for most elements of U.S. health care, was the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling upholding most aspects of the new national health-care law. As implementation of the new law proceeds, what does the future hold for Medicare? Because different parts of the law will go into effect over a number of years, its important to understand the changes that are in store for you. The AARP Health Law Guide, www.aarp.org/ healthlawguide, can help you stay on top of the law as it takes effect. The guide can also create a personalized report that tells you how the law will help you. If youre uninsured, your report will identify coverage you may be eligible to receive. In the meantime, here are a few changes to appreciate now: 1. If you reach the Medicare Part D doughnut hole the threshold at which you are responsible for a higher portion of your drug costs you will receive a 50 percent discount on brandname drugs and a 14 percent discount on generic drugs while in the coverage gap. 2. Medicare will provide preventive care services such as mammograms and screenings for cancer and diabetes, as well as an annual wellness visit, all at no cost to you. 3. If youre considered high-risk due to prior or current health problems, and if you have been uninsured for at least six months, you may buy insurance through the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PHIP) in Florida. 4. You may be able to add uninsured children to your familys existing insurance plan if they are under age 26. 5. If you get sick, you will not lose your coverage as long as you continue to pay the premiums.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 20 Florida lawmakers are fond of passing resolutions that mean relatively little. So heres an idea for a new resolution: Declare mid-July as Dog Days in Tallahassee. But while the capital saunters through humidity and swarms of mosquitoes, campaign action is picking up in legislative races across the state. Redistricting and the exodus of longtime lawmakers have helped create a collection of marquee election battles. The campaigns took a nasty turn this week when a mail piece attacked the personal life of former Senate President Tom Lee, who is running against Rep. Rachel Burgin for a Hillsborough County Senate seat. The mail piece also highlighted the prevalence this year of shadowy political committees that are collecting large amounts of money to try to in uence legislative races often by tearing down candidates. Gov. Rick Scott isnt on the ballot this year, but even he isnt seen much in Tallahassee these days. Scott spent part of the week touting more jobs coming to Florida, though two new reports showed that the employment picture remains murky. READY TO RUMBLE Politics, as the old clich goes, aint beanbag. But the mail piece this week attacking Lee even drew a public rebuke from state Republican Chairman Lenny Curry. The mailer, in big letters, said Character Matters and lumped Lee with Hillsborough County Property Appraiser Rob Turner, who has been embroiled in controversy recently about sending pornographic emails. The intent of the mailer clearly was to cast doubt about Lee among Republican voters in the largely conservative District 24, as the Aug. 14 primary against Burgin approaches. A group called The American People Committee, Inc., was behind the mailer, which asserted past marital in delity by Lee. The committee is chaired by lobbyist Keyna Cory, whose lobbyist husband, Jack, backs Burgin. Lee, who is seeking to return to the Legislature after six years on the sidelines, blasted the mailer. This is a full-contact sport I get that, he told The Tampa Tribune. But it shouldnt touch your family. Republican Senate leaders, meanwhile, continued rallying around Lees campaign, with Sens. John Thrasher of St. Augustine and Joe Negron of Stuart publicly backing him. Burgin said she wasnt surprised and contended that Republican leaders have targeted her because they dont agree with her conservative agenda. It is unprecedented, the Riverview Republican said. But Im not overly surprised to see that the Tallahassee insiders are trying to circle the wagons. The Lee-Burgin contest is on a short list of the most closely watched legislative races. New campaign- nance reports offer a good guide to those ghts, which in the Senate also include a Jacksonville-area race between Rep. Mike Weinstein and former Rep. Aaron Bean; a Daytona Beach-area race between Rep. Dorothy Hukill and Volusia County Chairman Frank Bruno; a St. Petersburg-area race between Reps. Jeff Brandes and Jim Frishe; and a South Florida race between Sens. Ellyn Bogdanoff and Maria Sachs. But as in the Lee-Burgin race, the candidates campaign-contribution reports likely only tell a piece of the story. Obscure political committees often with upbeat names such as Teachers United for Better Schools and Florida Freedom Council have been busy collecting and parceling out money to try to in uence races. SCOTT GOES WAWA FOR JOBS Scott continued his quest to attract jobs, including making an appearance Wednesday at the opening of Floridas rst Wawa convenience store in Orlando. Wawa, which operates in ve other states, plans to open 100 Florida stores and employ 35 people in each. Todays grand opening is evidence that more companies want to grow and expand here in Florida because of all we are doing to make our state the best place for business, Scott said in a news release. Scott also announced Digital Risk, a company that provides mortgage-related services, will expand in Florida, The expansion is expected to total 1,000 jobs, with 150 added in Boca Raton by early September. But a state report came out Friday that showed only modest jobs improvement in June. That report showed the states jobless rate unchanged from 8.6 percent in May though it was 2.1 percentage points lower than in June 2011. Earlier in the week, state economists released another report crediting much of the recent drop in the states unemployment rate to a shrinking labor pool and not to more people nding work. Nevertheless, Scott remained positive after Fridays report. As companies are choosing to grow and expand in our state, we are continuing to see Florida experience a positive economic recovery, the governor said in a statement. Floridians have more and more opportunities to get back to work, and last month, 9,000 Floridians were able to get a job and provide for their families. PRIVATIZATION PLAN GETS NEW LIFE Barring a successful legal challenge, two rms Corizon and Wexford Health Sources likely will be looking to add employees in Florida during the coming months. The only catch: The Department of Corrections will be shedding many of those same employees. DOC this week decided to move forward with a controversial plan to privatize prison health services across the state, with Corizon and Wexford getting the contracts. The decision came after Leon County Circuit Judge Kevin Carroll declined to rule in a challenge led by the Florida Nurses Association and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. The groups lawsuit centered on the fact that lawmakers last year used budget ne print, known as proviso language, to call for prison health privatization. The lawsuit contended that making the change in proviso language was unconstitutional, but Carroll did not rule on the question because the language expired with the June 30 end of the scal year. State lawyers have long contended DOC has the legal authority to do such a privatization, regardless of the proviso language. In announcing Tuesday that the agency would move forward, Secretary Ken Tucker said the move would save money and was best for the taxpayers. But the announcement could spur further legal wrangling. It doesnt shock me, said Don Slesnick, an attorney for the nurses association. It disappoints me that the state is that devious and the DOC is being that antiemployee. STORY OF THE WEEK: The Department of Corrections decided to move forward with privatizing prison health services. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: 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. If that happens, we wont get our results for weeks. --Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall, expressing caution about trying to purge ineligible voters, even after the state received approval to use a U.S. Department of Homeland Security database.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Hardball politics and a dash of wawaBy MARGIE MENZELTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 20 As Congress considers a farm bill that could slash federal food assistance, Florida with nearly 18 percent of its residents relying on that help could nd its poor still further submerged beneath the poverty line. Last week the U.S. House Agriculture Committee passed a bill containing $16 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, formerly known as food stamps. That would be a reduction more than three times larger than a proposed $4.5 billion reduction in the Senate version. Since 2007, before the recession, the number of Florida residents receiving food assistance has more than doubled, said Rebecca Brislain, executive director of the Florida Association of Food Banks. The amount of money people get on SNAP doesnt meet all their food needs, Brislain said. Theres no way charitable programs could ll the gap. Lack of regular access to food in Florida households grew from 9 percent in 2007 to 16.1 percent, or 1,214,000 households, in 2010, according to the Food Research Action Center in Washington, D.C. A lot of people are struggling, said Don Winstead, a former state administrator who led Floridas overhaul of its food stamp payment system. Anything that reduces the amount of SNAP assistance adds to their struggle. The extent of the cuts is by no means certain. The farm bill is being hotly debated, and House Speaker John Boehner may not bring the Agriculture Committees version to the oor before the November election. GOP leaders on Friday decided not to schedule it for a oor vote next week, leaving only four legislative days to consider the $957 billion package before Congress recesses in August. Farm programs funded by the measure expire Sept. 30. The legislation is opposed by people of differing political persuasions, from those who think it cuts too much to those who think it doesnt cut enough. If the House version were to prevail, it would reduce federal spending by $35 billion over ten years. The Senate version saves $23 billion, the difference entirely due to the chambers respective SNAP reductions. The SNAP cuts could affect Florida in several ways. First, the House bill would eliminate the practice of categorical eligibility. Florida is one of 40 states to use the so-called cat-el, a holdover from the 1996 welfare reform legislation that allows families to automatically qualify for SNAP by participating in other programs for the poor, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, and vice versa.

If youre looking for ways to improve your family meals it doesnt require a major overhaul of your approach to shopping or cooking. Often, just a few simple adjustments can go a long way. One of the easiest ways to upgrade a home-cooked meal is to select the freshest form of the recipes main ingredients, and focus on the quality of groceries on your shopping list. If you need some inspiration, here are four ways to focus on keeping meals simple and delicious: Using quality ingredients doesnt mean everything needs to be made from scratch. Pack fresh vegetables into family favorites like classic salads and sandwiches. Complement these dishes with readymade products that also focus on quality ingredients. For example, a staple ingredient that makes classic dishes such as BLTs and homemade potato salads taste even better is Hellmanns Real Mayonnaise. Its made with high quality, simple ingredients such as oil, vinegar, and now cage-free eggs. Dedicated to real, quality ingredients for nearly 100 years, Hellmanns recently announced its commitment to transition all of its recipes to 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2020. Pick out the main ingredient in your recipe and aim for quality. Whether youre making steaks, chicken or eggs, try using farm-fresh products from a local producer. Build meals around vegetables that are in season, such as midsummer BLTs when tomatoes are ripe for the picking. Plan a meal on the same day that you visit a local farmers market so you can use vegetables that may have been picked that morning, or better yet, cultivate your green thumb with a home garden for unlimited access to fresh and inexpensive vegetables. Use fresh herbs as seasoning to add a burst of avor to your meals. Fresh garlic is a great avor booster, as it has a long shelf live and can be used in a wide variety of cooking styles. The following Turkey & Avocado BLT recipe demonstrates how a few simple, quality ingredients can make for a delicious meal: Turkey & Avocado BLT Ingredients: 1 tablespoon Hellmanns or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise 1 ciabatta or soft roll, split and toasted 2 green leaf lettuce leaves 3 ounces sliced deli turkey breast 2 slices tomato 3 slices avocado (optional) 2 slices bacon, crisp-cooked Directions: Evenly spread Hellmanns or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise on roll, then layer with remaining ingredients.

Wilson; and the heirs, Devisees, grantees, assignees, or other claimants of the Estate of Sherrol D. Wilson, Respondents. FINDINGS OF FACT, CONCLUSIONS OF LAW AND ORDER THIS CAUSE came for public hearing before the Wakulla County Code Enforcement Board (the Board) on July 11, 2012 and having heard testimony under oath and received evidence, the Board issues its Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, and enters its Order in this case as follows: FINDINGS OF F ACT 1. Respondents are the owners of the subject property. 2. On August 15, 2011, the Code Enforcement Office conducted an inspection in response to a complaint received regarding the subject property, located at 157 Finner Drive, Crawfordville, Florida 32327, Parcel ID No 20-2S-01E-142-0491 7-D07, and observed the storage ofa large amount of tires in an unenclosed area in violation of section 8 .042, Wakulla County Code of Ordinances. 3. Pursuant to s 162.06, Fla. Stat. and s. 8065, Wakulla County Code, the Code Enforcement Officer issued an initial Notice of Violation to Respondents on August 22, 2011, by way of regular mail and certified mail, providing notice of the violation and also providing a reasonable time for correction of the violation and a date for compliance of September 15, 2011 4. On January 6, 2012, the Code Enforcement Office conducted a follow-up inspection to determine whether the violations were corrected by the date for compliance. The inspection revealed that the violations had not been corrected, The Code Enforcement Office issued a new Notice of Violation to Respondents by way of regular mail and certified mail, providing notice of the violation and a new date for compliance of February 6, 2012. An additional notice was mailed on March 26, 2012, providing a compliance date of April 10, 2012. 5. Additional notice of the violation and the hearing on the violation was given by way of publication in the Wakulla News once a week each week from May 17, 2012 through June 7, 2012, for four consecutive weeks, 6. Respondents failed to provide written notice of the correction of the violations to the Code Enforcement Office on or before the date for compliance, and the violations were not actually corrected. 7. Respondents were served with proper notice of the public hearing and Respondents, or their representative, failed to appear at the hearing. 8. Code Enforcement staffs testimony expresses concern that the tires constitute a health hazard due to the accumulation of water within the tires. CONCLUSIONS OF LA W The subject property is alleged to be in violation of section 8.042, of the Wakulla County Code of Ordinances Sections 8.042, states: All property shall remain free from any nuisance accumulation of rubbish or garbage other than that placed in an approved, and enclosed receptacle. Anuisance accumulation of rubbish or garbage in violation of this section shall be deemed to have occured if an owner or occupant of property allows garbage to remain on the property beyond a period of seven days or rubbish to remain on the property beyond a period of 15 days. 8,042(a), Wakulla County Code. For the purposes of section 8.042, rubbish is defined to include combustible and non-combustible waste materials, including, but not limited to: the residue from the burning of wood, coal, coke and other combustiblematerials, paper, rags, cartons, boxes, wood, excelsior, rubber, leather, tree branches, yard trimmings, tin cans, disconnected or inoperable appliances, metals, mineral matter, glass, crockery and dust, construction debris, and other similar materials. 8.041, Wakulla County Code. An accumulation of tires would be included within the definition of rubbish Section 8 .042 further requires that property owners dispose of rubbish in a safe and sanitary manner by placing such rubbish in approved containers, if possible, and removing it to an approved disposal facility within the County Pursuant to the above stated provision of the Wakulla County Code, and based on the evidence and testimony presented at the public hearing, the Wakulla County Code Enforcement Board finds by clear and convincing evidence that the Respondents have allowed items meeting the definition of rubbish to remain on the subject property for a period in excess of fifteen days, Furthermore, this violation presents a serious risk to the public health due to the potential for standing water which may contribute to an increased number of mosquitos and the spread of mosquito-born illnesses. ORDER Based upon the foregoing Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, and pursuant to the authority granted in Chapter 162, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 8, Wakulla County Land Development Code, by motion made and duly seconded and passed by the Board by a majority vote of at least four (4) members, it is hereby ORDERED: 1:.

Page 14B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 26, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com(ARA) Whether youre heading to your beach house or visiting family in far-off locales, summer driving can be a fun, ful lling experience. But while drivers of all ages can enjoy the pleasures of a long trip, changes in roads, road rules and driving conditions can make it more important for older drivers to make extra preparations to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey. AARP Driver Safety offers some advice for drivers age 50 and older who are planning to be on the road this summer. BEFORE YOU GO Some basic preparations can help ensure you and your vehicle are both in top form for your road trip. First, take care of yourself by making sure youre well rested, up-to-date on all medications, and have addressed any health concerns that could affect your driving ability. Its also a good idea to brush up on your driving skills. AARPs Driver Safety course is specifically designed to help people 50 and older refresh their driving skills and adapt to age-related changes, such as those to vision, hearing and reaction time. You can nd an in-person course near you by searching at www.aarp.org/ ndacourse or you can sign up for an online course. Taking a course may even score you a discount on your auto insurance rates, according to the website DMV.org. Next, take a look at your vehicle. Perform routine maintenance like an oil change (if your car is due for one) and check all uid levels. Check tire in ation and tread wear, make sure windshield wipers are in good condition, and clean all windows and headlights. Finally, make sure you pack items that can make your long drive easier and safer. Your travel equipment should include basic emergency tools like jumper cables, a jack and spare tire, and emergency ares. Also, be sure your trunk has a rst-aid kit and your up-to-date GPS device is front and center but not obstructing your vision inside the car. WHILE ON THE ROAD Once youre on the road, take steps to ensure you stay rested and focused. Take frequent and regular rest stops that allow you enough time for a bathroom break and to walk around a bit. Walking and gentle stretching can help ease stiff joints and muscles that may tighten up from inactivity. Planning your trip to take in some sights along the way is a great way to break up the journey. Check out online resources like travel websites and mapping apps for suggestions of tourist attractions and roadside diners where you can stop along the way. Avoid reviewing maps or your GPS directions while youre driving, as those things can become distracting and distracted driving is dangerous driving. Instead, designate a navigator who will monitor directions and read them aloud to you. Minimize nighttime driving as more accidents happen when its dark. If you must drive at night, use extra caution and remember to park in well-lit areas. Avoid driving during bad weather. Remember, youre on vacation, not on a schedule; you can spare the time to pull over rather than drive in torrential rain. A driver safety course specifically designed for people 50 and older can also help you learn coping techniques if you have agerelated mobility or vision issues that affect your ability to drive at night or in bad weather. While on your trip, be sure someone trusted knows your route and your approximate arrival time, and check in with that person during breaks to let them know your progress.

Why does Florida need an aging driver guide? Actually, it makes perfect sense when you consider that Florida leads the nation with 18 percent of its population age 65 and older. In fact, by the year 2030, over 27 percent will be over age 65, with half of those 75 or older. Mirroring this growth, an increasing proportion of drivers in Florida are getting older. Currently, nearly 3 million drivers in Florida are over age 65. Most people experience a steady decline in some of the skills needed to safely drive as we get older, however, these changes do not affect all drivers at the same age or in the same way, says Gail Holley, Florida Department of Transportations Safe Mobility for Life Program and Research Manager. It is important for everyone to understand the impact that aging can have on their driving and learn the warning signs and resources that are available to them so they can make the transition when driving may no longer be a safe option.
