By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies (RESTORE) of the Gulf Coast Act was signed by President Obama on July 6, since that time, representatives from Florida have been meeting to develop its state plan for how money will be distributed. The Florida Association of Counties held a meeting on July 19 with representatives from Florida cities and counties to begin the planning process. Under the RESTORE Act, 80 percent of Clean Water Act “ nes from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in 2010 will be used for Gulf Coast recovery. It created the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund to restore both the economic and environmental health of the Gulf Coast. Early estimates show that Wakulla County could receive $10 million to $40 million for local improvements, with the potential for much more, according to County Commissioner Alan Brock.

Story on Page 13ABy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netPete Scalco is no stranger to Wakulla County, so when he was given the opportunity to become the park manager at Wakulla Springs State Park, he says it was an easy decision. We love it here,Ž Scalco says. Scalco took his post at the park on July 2. The former park manager, Brian Fugate, left Wakulla to be the new assistant bureau chief for Florida Park Service District 2. District 2 oversees all parks from Inverness to Fernandina and from Jacksonville to the Suwannee River, according to Jennifer Diaz, external affairs manager for the Florida Park Service. Scalco and his wife, Pamela, have been coming to the area for years and even purchased property on Spring Creek Road in 1993. They recently finished building their home and always wanted to retire there. His neighbor and friend is Sandy Cook, a former park manager at Wakulla Springs. We really like the atmosphere here,Ž Scalco says. Its old Florida.Ž His children, Alexi and Peter, grew up fishing in a sink located on their property in Wakulla County. Its our little place of enchantmentŽ he says. Scalco, a native Floridian, has worked for the Florida Park Service since 1985. He started as a park ranger for a new state park, Cayo Costa State Park, a barrier island park only accessible by boat. The state had recently purchased the park from the county who was going to abandon it. Scalco was one of the members of the initial crew that rebuilt the park, including cabins and trails. It was like Gilligans Island,Ž he says. He decided to join this experiment because he always loved the outdoors. His studied environmental studies and public administration at the University of West Florida. I was bitten by the bug,Ž Scalco says.Continued on Page 12A Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 29th Issue Thursday, August 2, 2012 T w o S e c t i o n s Two Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents k h h h k l l h P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y R e a d D a i l y Published Weekly, Read DailynewsThe WakullaPublic Notices .................................................................Page 3A The Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 6A Obituaries .......................................................................Page 7A Community .....................................................................Page 8A School .............................................................................Page 9A Outdoors ......................................................................Page 10A Water Ways ...................................................................Page 11A Sheriffs Report................................................................Page 14A News Extra! .....................................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Taking Care of Business ...................................................Page 3B Weekly Roundup ..............................................................Page 9B Classi eds ......................................................................Page 11B Legal Notices .................................................................Page 11B Comics ...........................................................................Page 15B INDEX OBITUARIES RJ Crum Sr. Don Gregory Davis Elmer Terry ‘ET’ Dawkins Jerry Robert Mackin Ann Denson Poucher Kelly C.

The raise approved by the school board at their meeting on Monday, July 30, is a step increase. Missy Rudd, union representative for members of the Wakulla Classroom Teachers Association, spoke out in favor of the budget and said she supported efforts by school board members and understood the pressures and problems they face. Teachers still must ratify their proposed contract with the district … the vote will be held Aug. 9, the day teachers return to the classroom. Superintendent of Schools David Miller said the pay increase varies because of the salary schedule, but the minimum increase for a 12month full-time employee is $300. For teachers, the range is $300 to $750, depending on where they are on the salary schedule.

The National Weather Service issued a Tornado Warning for the Crawfordville area and an indication of tornado activity was observed on Stokley Road, Rough Cut Road and Whiddon Lake Road. The WCSO dispatch received numerous calls from citizens about heavy rain, near zero visibility and many downed trees and powerlines. Two homes reported damage as a result of falling trees. A home on Stokley Road had damage to a bedroom from a falling tree. A home on Rough Cut Road received damage from a very large tree falling on the home. Damage was estimated from moderate to major. Neither of the families accepted assistance offers from the American Red Cross and no injuries were reported at any of the locations. Wakulla County Road and Bridge staff cleared a large tree out of Stokley Road near David Kinsey Road with a front end loader. With access issues caused by the tree, deputies made contact with homeowners on foot to make sure everyone was unharmed. WCSO deputies and FireRescue personnel responded to the area to keep residents from driving into energized powerlines until power company of“ cials could respond. Some of the residents of the area reported power outages lasting longer than seven hours.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netWakulla County was recently noti“ ed that it would be receiving a credit of $75,000 in Medicaid backlog, according to Deputy County Administrator Tim Barden. Barden said the county had anticipated a credit of $95,000 because of double billing. However, we are still working with the AHCA (Agency for Health Care Administration) to get their calculations so we can make a recommendation to the board on whether to accept that amount,Ž Barden said. The amounts must be certi“ ed to the Department of Revenue on Aug. 1 and the counties have until Sept. 1 to accept or reject that amount. Early estimations showed that Florida owed $325 million in backlog Medicaid bills, but since that time representatives from AHCA have met with counties to clear up any errors. That number is now $172.2 million, with seven counties receiving a credit, according to the Florida Association of Counties. This year, we are fortunate to be one of the few counties in Florida who are owed money back, but we are not sure what this process will provide for in the future,Ž said County Commissioner Alan Brock. This process started after the controversial House Bill 5301 was passed in the legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Scott on March 29. The new law deals with state Medicaid billing and changes the way each countys contribution is collected. The law will require each county to pay its share of disputed Medicaid bills going back 12 years to May 1 of this year. For past due billings, each county must pay 85 percent of the amount due over the next “ ve years. Wakulla County was lucky to not have to pay any of the disputed bills, but instead will receive a credit. However, going forward, the state will withhold a portion of the countys revenue sharing or one-cent sales tax distributions for Medicaid bills. Instead of receiving a bill, the county will receive a statement of what was taken out. Previously, AHCA provided counties with a monthly bill listing Medicaid residents for which the county is responsible for paying. Counties were able to review the information to verify the individuals county of residence and determine whether the bill was accurate. If it was correct, the bill was paid. If it was incorrect and the person was not a county resident, the amount of the bill was denied and sent back to AHCA. The local government medicaid payment process is complicated, and has needed correcting for years,Ž Brock said. This process that is moving forward has been rushed, I dont think there has been proper time for review, and I am not sure what the steps will be in the future.Ž The AHCA is now in the process of developing the proposed rules to implement the legislation. Counties were given an opportunity to make recommendations prior to the rules being “ nalized. A public hearing was held on June 1 and another was held on July 26. While AHCAs efforts to correct these problems are appreciated, they are indicative of the need for a rule that recognizes the billing systems remains imperfect,Ž said Chris Holley, executive director of FAC, in a letter to the deputy secretary of AHCA. FAC has worked hard with counties and the AHCA to address the concerns in Medicaid billing. Barden said similar concerns have been raised by himself and other county representatives. Some of these recommendations were: to consider creating an internal agency appeal process option for disputing future bills to save the parties from having to settle the issues in an adversarial Florida Division of Administrative Hearing; and provide for a one-time advanced refund request on the preliminary backlog amount, especially due to the large number of inter-county transfers which counties are seeing for the very “ rst time. It was also suggested that AHCA increase the level of detail in its monthly receipts to counties to include a rolling reconciliation in order to promote better accountability and tracking,Ž Barden said. Wakulla is one of 55 counties who has joined in a lawsuit with FAC to challenge to the constitutionality of the law, as well as its legality. The lawsuit was “ led on May 11 in the 2nd Judicial Court in Leon County. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter meeting for more than a year, the Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee has come up with numerous ideas, but the follow through has been minimal. This is partly because of the amount of time spent trying to get accurate data for county buildings to determine energy consumption. The main focus of the committee was to “ nd ways to reduce expenditures and the idea was to determine which county facilities were using the most energy and target those. However, because square footage calculations, meter numbers and building names have been confusing, it has taken longer than anticipated. At the recent meeting in July, Chairperson Elinor Elfner resigned from the committee. She said she felt the committee uncovered some interesting items and came up with great ideas, but little had been done. She added that where the committee is going and what it should be focused on was up to County Administrator David Edwards, who, she said seemed to be on board with the idea that conserving energy saves money. Its time for me to get out of the picture,Ž Elfner said. The committee can only advise the county administrator and county commission and cant make decisions. The other committee members agreed that they needed some direction. I think David gets it,Ž said Commissioner Lynn Artz. He understands.Ž She said the county is currently moving forward on developing a maintenance schedule, which has been said over and over again by Dan Ard of Talquin Electric. He advises the committee about energy conservation measures. But to perform preventative maintenance, there needs to be an increase in the facilities department budget, Artz said. Otherwise, we are always in crisis mode,Ž she said. The committee has also looked at creating an automated system for the disbursement forms for electric bills that would include electric usage broken down for each department. Previously, the disbursement forms were entered manually and Artz said a lot of people werent “ lling them out all the way. Once the county moves to the automated systems, they will be able to track their energy use for each department. Artz also suggested creating a revolving green fund for each department. A portion of money saved by energy saving measures would go into this fund and be used for improvements or upgrades to facilities in that department. She also said a portion of the savings could be given to employees as a bonus. Ard said education and creating incentives is the best way to get things done. You cant mandate changes,Ž Ard said. You have to get everybody involved.Ž The committee also planned to make the recommendation to Edwards that the county get two different estimates for retrofitting their outdoor and indoor facilities. Knight Energy Management attended a previous meeting and gave a proposal about what they could do for the county facilities. They retro“ t largescale facilities with the latest LED lighting technology with no up-front costs. The committee agreed they should obtain two estimates from two different companies to “ nd the best deal. They also recommended the county get an estimate for installing controls on lighting, motion sensors and timers. The next meeting will be held on Sept. 19 at 10:30 a.m. in the commission administration conference room.COUNTY COMMISSIONWakulla will receive $75,000 Medicaid creditCounty Energy Conservation Committee loses a member e county had anticipated a credit of $95,000 because of double billing.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIt has been more than a month since Tropical Storm Debby raged through Wakulla County and dumped buckets upon buckets of rain on the area. Shortly after the storm, President Obama approved a declaration for individual assistance and Disaster Recovery Center was opened in Crawfordville. Since July 5, the center has been visited by 668 people. On Monday, Aug. 6, the DRC will transition into a Disaster Loan Outreach Center ran by the Small Business Administration. The focus of the center then shifts from services homeowners and renters to businesses, said Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesperson Tim Tyson. A staff member from FEMA will still be on hand to help people register for individual assistance, “ ll out an application, check the status of their application or make changes to it. However, starting Monday, all state agencies and volunteer organizations will no longer be represented at the center, but those agencies are still available to help. The center is located at the extension of“ ce, 84 Cedar Avenue, and the hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. The daily visits to the center have dropped signi“ cantly which is why it is going through this transition. Previously, the daily average was 25 and the last couple of days only three people have visited the DRC, Tyson said. Tyson said once the state and FEMA feel they have reached everyone in the area through individual assistance, they close up shop and move on. The Disaster Loan Outreach Center will close at the end of business on Thursday, Aug. 9. There will no longer be a center. That will be the end of the physical presence of FEMA,Ž Tyson said. Other counties, such as Duval, Pasco and Pinellas, are still seeing daily counts of more than 40, Tyson said, and “ ve others are seeing more than 25 a day, so they will remain open. Once the DRC closes, people will still be able to register with FEMA and apply for assistance until the beginning of September, or 60 days from the declaration. This can be done over the phone by calling 1-800-6213362 or going online at www.disasterassistance.gov. If people havent registered and “ nd out after the deadline that there is some kind of damage to their property, such as mold or mildew, they will have no recourse to get assistance from FEMA, said Tyson. People also need to be aware that the incident period ended July 26. People will now have to prove that the damage happened before then. In Wakulla County, 552 people have applied for assistance from FEMA and $766,313 has been approved, with $667,050 for housing assistance and $99,262 for other needs, according to Tyson. Statewide, more than 12,843 have requested FEMA assistance and $17.5 million has been approved. SBA has given out $5.9 million in home loans and one business loan for $22,500. Tyson also encouraged people who received a loan application from the SBA to complete it and turn it back in. If they dont, then they will not be eligible for FEMA assistance. No one is required to accept the loan if they are approved. They also do not have to accept the entire amount of the loan. And if someone isnt approved for the loan, they are sent back to FEMA where they may be eligible for assistance.Disaster Recovery Center will shift to Disaster Loan Outreach Center TROPICAL STORM DEBBY AFTERMATH FILE PHOTORed Cross volunteers assist a victim at the DRC shortly after Debby.

Editor, The News: An open letter to my fellow Wakulla Countians: Dear Wakulla Countians, I was born here in 1953, and theres not anything for our kids to do. We need a place for our kids to go, maybe a skating rink with an arcade. Our kids are all getting into trouble. We need to start a move for a donation of land and our contractors could donate time and labor to build such a place. Of“ cers would donate time to such a place to help our kids stay out of trouble. We have needed one for 50 years. I believe some of us who have lived here know this and have known this for years. We are older now and can offer to donate some of the money. Our building supplier would give some material, Lowes and Home Depot would help also, our citizens would give labor to help our contractors build this skating rink and arcade. We need to help our kids stay out of trouble! With all the contractors we have, and carpenters, one or two county fees could be waved. We could put jars around town and our banks would help. We can do this, folks, to help our kids stay off the streets. The county has that big piece of property on Lower Bridge Road (MLK Memorial). All the underground is ready. Lets do this, folks. Michael Moore Crawfordville Editor, The News: Since becoming a public servant in 1997, I have always avoided publicly supporting other candidates, in order to keep the of“ ce as independent and nonpartisan as possible. I am making an exception in this approach for my friend and colleague Robert Hill. Robert is the Clerk of Court in neighboring Liberty County, where he does a great job. Robert is universally respected by his fellow Clerks. Earlier, Robert Hill was a public school teacher and coach for more than two decades, and had served a term as School Superintendent in Liberty County as well. Local government in general, and the of“ ce of Clerk of Court in particular, is not well understood in Tallahassee these days. I believe Robert can bring more effective representation to the state capital on ALL the important issues we face. I know Robert Hill to be a “ ne Christian and family man with conservative, North Florida values. These attributes, along with his experiences in leadership in local government will be extremely valuable to Wakulla County and the other counties in District 7 as well. I hope you will join me in the Democratic primary on Aug. 14 and vote for Robert Hill for State House! Brent Thurmond Wakulla Clerk of Court Crawfordville Editor, The News: The Wakulla County School District is celebrating its seventh consecutive year as an AŽ rated district, one of only 14 districts in the state to receive this rating in 2010-11 and the only one in the Big Bend in 2010-2011. It consistently exceeds the state graduation rate and leads all rural districts in offering advance placement courses. These accomplishments would not be possible without the hard work and professionalism of the countys teachers and administrators, and the support of the men and women of the Wakulla County School Board. Our son, brother and uncle -Michael Scott … needs your vote. Mike is the incumbent School Board candidate for District 2. He has served as a member of the School Board for the past 16 years. He was raised and educated in Wakulla County. We are proud of Mikes record of service as School Board Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and volunteer within the schools. We know how important the mission of keeping Wakullas public schools on top has been to Mike and ensuring the best educational opportunities for all of the children of Wakulla County. In this time of uncertainty, there is no substitute for experience. The family of Michael Scott would like to thank you for your continued support, and we hope we can count on your vote for Mike on Aug. 14. Avery & Barbara ScottKeith & Angela Scott Brau (WHS Class of 1977) Priscilla Scott Brau ( WHS Class of 1979)J. B. & Shanna Taylor WebbShelby (WHS Class of 2001) & Carol TaylorEditor, The News: I am confused: the issue of drainage and impassable roads within Wakulla Gardens was addressed by placing a stone material over the existing dirt road. No poll taken to see if this material was a suitable road covering or if this material would resolve the problem. Now it has come to light that this product had created another problem … an irritating dust. County commissioners want now to poll the residents to “ nd agreement for to an assessment to pave the roads. The key issue at hand is not the dust and is not the drainage … these are public roads not private roads. Payments for repairs and for drainage must come from the county … not from individuals who own homes on those roads. After all, were the residents on Rehwinkle Rd polled and assessed for its repaving ?? It is these issues that have forced me to cast a NO on the ballot. Bob Mason Crawfordville Editor, The News:Commissioners, who last year raised your taxes on lights, phone, internet, cable, propane and garbage, are ready to use millions of our state transportation dollars to expand the Panacea airstrip for a few hobby pilots, and make a 20-year commitment for our county to cover operating costs. Pilots from Tarpine, a ” y-in subdivision beside the airstrip, say expansion will boost the economy and make their ” ying safer. Commissioners who agree are ignoring these facts: There are better places to invest $3+ million in a countyŽ airport than the remote, land-locked and ” ood-prone Panacea airstrip. Property taxpayers have to subsidize small public airports … were subsidizing Panaceas today. Wetlands must be “ lled in to pave the Panacea strip; run-off will kill marine life in Ochlockonee Bay and increase ” ooding in homes. Costly lawsuits from homeowners in the expanded ” ight path are probable. And property values along Surf Road will decrease, as will county revenue, and youll make up the loss. So who bene“ ts? The hobby pilots, of course, along with a developer who will sell his unsellable swampland to the county expanding the airstrip. Who will lose? The rest of us. The same commissioners who want you to raise our county sales tax in November to build roads will vote on Aug. 6, for a bigger playground for pilots. Upset? Then tell David Roberts at the Florida Department of Transportation (414-4513) to stop wasting our tax dollars, and, come November, vote out the big-spenders we call commissioners. Dana Peck dpeck4@gmail.comEditor, The News: Weve been so busy reconstructing our lives since the Debby ” ood that until now we havent taken the time to give proper thanks. So many people … from my Eden Springs co-workers, neighbors and friends, to volunteers weve never met … made visits and calls offering assistance. Once again my neighbors, the McClains, their daughter, Cecelia, and her fiance, Corey, went to extraordinary efforts to assist us even though they were equally in distress. We are fortunate to have these incredibly sel” ess neighbors. Special thanks also to our friends, Alex and Jennifer Ayotte, who didnt take no for an answer. In fact, they actively guided us every step of the way, putting every resource into action including manpower, babysitting, advice, equipment and a whole lot of bug spray! It has been a lesson in human kindness that has helped us grow and which we shall never forget. Tess, Sven, Jack and Joey Coetzee and Thelma Letchworth SopchoppyCorrectionsHeads up, Wakulla taxpayers Endorsement for Robert Hill Family asks support of Mike Scott She will vote for Melisa Taylor A vote of no on Wakulla Gardens roads anks to neighbors for the help Lets build something for the kidsREADERS WRITE:Editor, The News: Mrs. Melisa Taylor is a name that is associated with so many high school accomplishments and milestones in preparing for furthering the education of my friends and myself. I know her as my Advanced Placement Language and Composition teacher, my English 4 Honors teacher, one of my senior sponsors and the smile that would greet me as I walked into The Learning Curve for another tutoring session. But most of all, I, and many others, know her as the perfect example of an excellent teacher and mentor. I, as a student, agree that Mrs. Taylor has this magic when it comes to her students and our learning experience. Everyone has their own theories on where this magic comes from, but I believe it is her ability to take her lessons and experiences from being a parent herself, and the way she never forgets what its like to be a student, and incorporates those perspectives into her everyday teaching strategy. This creates a respectful and balanced relationship between teacher and student and fosters an effective learning environment. This is also a quality I would like to see on the School Board. When Melisa Taylors campaign for School Board District 2 was announced, I was thrilled. The reason is because along with teaching English in the classroom, she has gone over and beyond to set time aside and help guide me, and many others, through the process of what it takes to reach our individual goals after high school. For that reason, I was beyond willing to help her reach her goals. I know she is the most quali“ ed candidate. I am currently 18 years old, and I will have to vote early between August 4-11 for School Board District 2 because I leave to start my freshmen year of college at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. This is an adventure that would not be possible without the tutoring from The Learning Curve and Mrs. Taylors guidance. I know that she will be a balanced addition to the school board with her experience as a parent, student advocate, and her impressive 28 years of teaching. Im voting for Mrs. Melisa Taylor for School Board District 2 because she is extremely quali“ ed, knowledgeable, and I positively know that she will make a wonderful difference in our school district. She is most de“ nitely a fresh perspective. Molly Vise mollyvise@hotmail.comNo negative political lettersPolitical season is upon us already. As the candidates get their campaigns in full swing, it will be the policy of The Wakulla News not to print negative Letters to the Editor. If you want to write a letter in support to endorse your favorite candidate, by all means, send it in. But it isnt necessary to tear down or smear the rival(s) in order to bolster your favorite. And the negativity only reinforces the idea of group against group, and citizen against citizen. Lets focus on the positive attributes of those who are seeking of“ ce and why voters should support them. All of the candidates deserve to be treated with respect … they have put themselves out there to be voted up or down based on their opinion of the issues. All of them have expressed a sincere desire to do whats best for Wakulla County … whether as county commissioners, school superintendent or school board members. Remember: Early voting is Aug. 4 through Aug. 11, and the primary election is Aug. 14. Vote. William Snowden is editor of The Wakulla News. William Snowdenwsnowden@thewakullanews.net

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 5ASpecial to The NewsWakulla Medical Center and North Florida Medical Centers, Inc. Celebrates National Health Center Week 2012 the week of Aug. 5 through Aug. 11. Wakulla Medical Center is marking National Health Center Week to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of health centers as local solutions, both throughout the State of Florida and nationally throughout the United States. The theme this year is Celebrating Americas Health Centers: Powering Healthier Communities,Ž to underscore how community health centers provide access to affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people. They are strong partnerships of people, governments and communities who work together to address the unique and diverse health conditions of the community, said Wakulla Medical Center Manager Brenda Health centers are run from the bottom up, by a patientmajority governing board that guides how limited resources can be effectively directed to meet its patients health care needs. One of the bright spots in Americas health care system, health centers provide a health care home to with open access and offers sliding fee scale program to all of those who live in Wakulla County. This model of care was rated as one of the most effective programs by former President George W. Bushs Office of Management and Budget. Posey pointed out that presidents from both parties and members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have long recognized the value of health centers and supported their expansion. With more health care homes in communities, we can reduce health care costs and unnecessary hospitalizations and visits to the hospital emergency rooms. Studies show that when illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and depression are not appropriately managed or prevented, they account for a significant portion of the skyrocketing costs for families and the entire health care system,Ž said Posey. Community health centers, like Wakulla Medical Center, have been leaders in showing the value of this approach as an effective way to address more needs and improve health by providing access to quality healthcare at an affordable price. We serve every member of the community,Ž Posey said. Those who have insurance such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield, CHP, Medicare, Medicaid, as well as offer a sliding fee scale. We serve the needs of our community under one roof, where every patient is treated as an individual, with dignity and respect,Ž Posey said. This is what health care should be, and what we celebrate during National Health Center Week.Ž For a list of all of North Florida Medical Center Inc. locations, please visit www. NFMC.org. We invite you to visit our center and experience what being a community health center is all about. We are here to serve our community. Please call us at any time for more information at Wakulla Medical Center, (850) 984-4735.

See you there!Author to hold booksigningSpecial to The NewsLocal author John Wade, whose book, In Sketch of a ProphecyŽ was recently published, will hold a booksigning at Books-A-Million bookstore in Tallahassee on Saturday, Aug. 11, from noon to 3 p.m. In the book, Wade illustrates many of the features of the Tabernacle of Moses and Temple of Solomon, along with the historic Old Testament rituals that took place there. Coupled with meticulous citations of scripture and intricate artwork, he uses the biblical descriptions of these buildings to show what Christians can expect in heaven. These descriptions are blueprints of the transformed Christian heart and even patterns of heaven itself, our future home. Verifying the beauty and truth in the old gospel story, this book not only feeds the readers with the word of God it inspires hunger for more. While the good news is validated, many of the connections between Solomons Temple and the gospel of Jesus Christ are emphasized. Though the gospel itself remains unchanged, it is taught from a fresh perspective that is at once clear, simple and interesting. The book is so loaded with information, colorful descriptions, and intriguing thoughts that it is not properly read, until it is read, contemplated, and read again. In Wades life, he writes that all of my family from my grandparents on down have always cherished the loving and mighty God of the Bible. Through family discussions I was introduced to the Bible and learned all I could about the lord. I am glad to say that I do not remember any time in my life that conversations about Jesus and the salvation of God were very far from our lips. As a family, we talked about him virtually all of the time, and whenever we are together, we still do.Ž OUT TO PASTORSo this is summer, is it?By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER It was just another day and I was indulging a carefree moment of complaining about the weather. I cant believe its so hot today,Ž I muttered. I thought I was talking to myself but obviously, I had an audience. Have you ever said or did something not realizing somebody was watching you? Every time I am in a restaurant eating, I endeavor to remember there is an audience and try my very best not to spill the soup on my lap. Although, I must admit that that kind of lap dance always gets a vigorous round of applause from the audience. Dont ask me how I know. I thought in my own special way of thinking that I was alone only to “ nd out the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was within earshot of my remarks. I must say she is rather remarkable. Those earshot momentsŽ are quite extensive. I will not go as far as to say that she can read my mind, although I think she can, but she seems to know what I am thinking even before I go through the effort and labor of thinking. I do not know why I even spend the energy thinking on my own. Even when I do think up a thought of my own and go so far as to express it I am always challenged. The challenge is, do not think that way. The challenger is my wife. Life would be so much easier, not to mention less stressful, if I just would quit thinking my own thoughts. It is when I am thinking my own thoughts that I get into trouble. Getting back to my moment of complaining. I cant believe,Ž I muttered, its so hot today.Ž To which my wife said, Dont you know its summer? And dont you know that its supposed to be hot during the summer?Ž I did know that but it did not make the heat any more bearable. If,Ž my wife said rather sternly, you cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen.Ž What the kitchen had to do with it being hot outside is way beyond my pay scale. There was a brief moment when I almost threw caution to the wind and asked my wife what she meant by that comment. Boy, am I glad I didnt. If I remember correctly,Ž my wife said as she stared at me rather intently, a few months ago you were complaining about how cold it was.Ž She was right. It was not but a few months ago, I was complaining that it was so cold outside that I just could not bear it. Youre going to have to make up your mind.Ž That was a serious admonition from her. Either,Ž she continued, its too hot or its too cold. Now make up your mind.Ž I smiled demurely in her direction and nodded in the af“ rmative. Not wanting to further the conversation, I whispered very gently, Yes, dear.Ž Later on in the evening, we were watching television. It was the local news and special report of the day had to do with the record heat wave across our country. Its been a long time,Ž the weatherman said, since weve seen temperatures this high. Boy, is it hot out there.Ž I glanced in her direction as covertly as possible and noticed she was staring at me, just daring me to say something. There is a time to say something and then sometimes something should not be said at all. I concealed my grin as much as possible knowing that someone was watching me. Under my breath I whispered, I cant believe its so hot today.Ž After all, it is summer and it is supposed to be hot. I just believe that everybody has the right to complain about the weather. I also believe that some people have the right not to hear me complain about the weather. It is a well-noted mark of wisdom to know when to speak and when not to speak. Solomon in the Old Testament had it right when he said, Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understandingŽ (Proverbs 17:28 KJV). So, this is summer, but you did not hear it from me.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolContinued from Page 1A The school board also picked up a portion of the increase in insurance costs, plus gave employees a $200 supplement intended to keep them pretty much held harmlessŽ from the increase, Miller said. The school board set the total millage at 8.486 mills, which is down slightly from last years millage of 8.5 mills. A mill represents $1 of tax for each $1,000 of taxable value. For a $100,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, school board taxes would amount to about $424 for the year. (That does not include county taxes or special assessments, or other taxing authorities such as the water management district.) Donna Sanford, the only other citizen besides Rudd to speak at the public hearing, praised the school board for reducing her taxes, but expressed concern about an increase in the districts insurance costs. She was directed to meet with the finance office about her questions. Rudd expressed disappointment in the State of Florida for reducing its share of education costs, commenting that Wakullas school budget was formerly made up of 55 percent revenues from the state … it is now down to 39 percent, she said. Rudd said it is the states responsibility for pay for education, not local taxpayers. As for the pay increase that is part of this years budget, Superintendent Miller was enthusiastic that it was a sign of an improving economy … noting as well reports that state revenue collections were up $400 million over projections so far this year. The school board budget includes a .25 mill discretionary levy … the last year it can be imposed. While a small part of the budget … it generates only $300,000 in local taxes … it brings a more than dollar-fordollar match from the state of $315,000. The “ nal budget hearing is set for Monday, Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. School employees get raiseSpecial to The NewsThe Coastal Optimist Club Annual School Supply Drive is in full swing. Purchase a few extra supplies this year and drop them off at any of the following locations to help the students of Wakulla County prepare for school. Donation boxes are located at Ameris Bank in Crawfordville, Centennial Bank in Crawfordville, Capital City Bank in Crawfordville, The Wakulla News and St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church. The school supply drive ends Aug. 30. Money donations can be mailed to Susan Payne Turner, Coastal Optimist Club Treasurer at P.O. Box 610, Crawfordville, FL 32326.Special to The NewsTallahassee, FL … Workforce Plus would like to congratulate all Wakulla High School seniors on achieving this milestone. With so many decisions to be made and the world of possibilities available, Workforce Plus wants to remind students and their parents that they are not alone when planning for the future.

Here it is “ rst of August and before long well be talking about our fall “ shing, kids will be back in school shortly and FSU football is only about a month away. Where does time go? This has been a very good summer for fishing and our scallop season has been spectacular despite all the rain we had from Debby and all the rain we continue to get. Folks are getting their limit in a couple of hours or less and every time they go there seems to be more scallops than the time before. Michael Smith said he has been finding bigger scallops closer to shore and Glen and Alicia Peel said they have been “ nding them between Black Rock and Grey Mare in four feet of water. If you havent been you still have plenty of time and just go east of the St. Marks Lighthouse and look for all the boats. Just remember there are rocks in that area so you need to go slow. The 9th annual C-Quarters Kingfish Shootout is Aug. 4 and 5. The Captains meeting will be Friday night, Aug. 3, at C-Quarters on the Carrabelle River in Carrabelle. This tournament is held every year in honor of Jimmy Crowders daughter and pro“ ts go to the Leukemia Research Foundation. You can register at the Captains meeting and for more information you can contact Mary Lawhon at (850) 933-4166. Capt. Kent Taylor, David Vatter and Butch Davis “ shed the Ochlockonee River last week and had a very good day using the Gulp and some othere grubs. They came in with four nice trout, two reds and “ ve ” ounder. All were caught in the river. Capt. Luke Frazier “ shed with Jason Godwin and his brother Rick from California last week. They “ shed from the Ochlockonee to Piney Island and came in with two reds, several trout and a pompano. Pete Griggs and his grandson Kamian were “ shing near the Ochlockonee River State Park with shrimp on the bottom last week and were in for a big shock. Kamian was using a Zebco rod and reel and landed a big Gulf Sturgeon. The “ sh swam around the boat in circles and “ nally tired out and they were able to land, take pictures and release. This is a trip Kamian and his grandfather will never forget. Glen Peel, Jerry Alexander, Dan Tillman, Ginger Tillman and Shawn Beaty also had a fishing trip they will never forget: Glen went to the island of Kona in Hawaii to fish with his friend Chappy. Fishing aboard Chappys boat, the Kalele, Glen caught and released his “ rst marlin, which was estimated at about 300 pounds. On day two of the trip he caught a 110-pound Ahi (yellowfin tuna). On the third day “ shing, a 175-pound Ahi was caught. Glens wife Alicia missed this trip but she did say she took her daughter scalloping and they loaded up with the scallops. Jerry, Dan, Ginger and Shawn also had a fantastic trip but in a different part of the world. They went to Gol“ to, Cost Rica, on the South Pacific Coast and fished with Capt. Bobby McGuinness on his 37-foot boat, The Cazador. The captain tried to get them to go on his long trip on the “ rst day but they all decided they wanted o “ sh in closer. They landed a couple of sail“ sh and lost a couple. On the second day he convinced them to do the 90-mile trip out to about 6,000 feet of water and he assured them they would have a great day. In fact, he said they wouldnt have time to drink any beer. Jerry said it was unreal. Within minutes of arriving and putting out the baits they were hooked up on a marlin. They caught and landed 15 marlin between 300 and 475 pounds and had two on at once several times. Capt. McGuinness was selected the Worlds Best Captain/Guide in 2006 and again in 2010 by International Game Fish Association for setting more IGFA certi“ ed world records those years than any other captain anywhere. Right now he holds over 200 world records. For the trip of a lifetime, Capt. McGuinness can be reached at 1 (800) 634-0012. I fished with Dr. Jim ONeil and Floyd Jaegers on Saturday and we didnt catch any marlin but did manage to catch three limits of trout, several Spanish, two flounder and about eight big bluefish. We caught everything on the Gulp and live shrimp. Jim said he had “ shed the week before over at Dog Island and “ shing from shore on the West end with a piece of cut bait caught a 36-inch red“ sh. Fishing is good and scalloping is good. What more could we ask for in August. Know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good “ shing!

UnderwaterWakullaBy Travis Kersting This past week, “ ve members of Flotilla 12 moved closer to becoming crew quali“ ed. One of the tasks a crewmember in training has to complete is a swim test. During this test, the trainee must be able to properly put on a life jacket when instructed, get into a pool, tread water for 5 to 10 minutes and swim unassisted for at least 30 feet. If you have never felt what it is like to be in the water with a life jacket on, it is a very different feeling. This is especially true for children. If you have never let your child play in the water with a life jacket, do you really want the “ rst time to be in a crisis situation? Prevention is key, and being familiar with the feeling of ” oating can make a difference in a crisis situation, should one arise. Following up on Rule #8, avoiding a collision, Rule #9 talks about navigating in narrow channels. This is very real for our area as the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers have many tight areas. As with driving, it is important to remain as close to the right side of the channel as possible when in narrow areas. Thankfully, this is not too dif“ cult for us, unless a large barge or heavy traf“ c are present. Boats smaller than 20 meters (roughly 65 feet) and sailboats shall not block or limit the progress of a boat that can only maneuver in a narrow channel. Boats that are “ shing shall not block the channel or limit the ability of other boats to move in the channel. This is one thing that is common in our area and that we try to educate people about. Not only can “ shing in the channel be hazardous for other boaters, it is a good way to get your line cut. Occasionally crab traps are dragged into the channel, so a close watch out is important to avoid this unnecessary snag in your day out on the water. Crossing the channel in front of another boat that cannot avoid you by moving outside of the channel is not permitted. In the event that a boat appears ready to cross in front of you, and you are not able to move around them, then “ ve short blasts of your horn are advised to warn the other boat. If intending to pass another boat in the channel when it is necessary for the other boat to move, slow down or take another action for you to safely pass, it is required that you use the proper sound signals described in rule 34. When reaching a part of a channel that has a sharp bend where you cannot see oncoming boats, it is advisable to slow your speed and use the appropriate sound signals (one prolonged blast of your horn) to alert others you are entering the bend. And lastly, unless there is no other option, anchoring in a channel is discouraged. As Sherrie says, Safe Boating is no Accident … knowledge is power, be knowledgeable and be in command. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 11Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Not Like Home. In June I returned home to Minnesota for my grandfathers 90th birthday. I visited family and friends whom I had not seen in many years. The one thing I didnt do was go diving and thats only because I was not able to transport my dive equipment this time. Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, is a mecca for freshwater “ shing, boating, diving, camping and a variety of other water related activities. If you like being on the water, you would like Minnesota. That sounds very much like Florida, but there are distinct differences that make Florida a frustrating place to enjoy these same activities. Minnesota is frozen for much of the year but the water still draws entire communities for ice “ shing, snowmobiling and ice diving. Often times the frozen barrier between you and that monster walleye is over three feet thick. Somehow, Minnesotans tolerate the cold and frequently people travel there from the warmer states for ice “ shing. The limits and seasons for “ shing are mostly universal across the state of Minnesota, but a few lakes have their own regulations. The season to harvest “ sh depends on their spawning cycles and the ice. Its common and legal to see people using the practice of catch and releaseŽ all year (especially between seasons) in Minnesota. In Florida there are different seasons for different “ sh and then there are also regulations for state versus federal waters. For someone who is new to Florida this can be most confusing. Often times I hear that the best thing to do is check the regulations online before you go out because rules change so often. In Minnesota, if I want to go diving, I can drive up to any body of water and do so as long as the water is publicly accessible or the land owner grants permission. Most land owners actually really appreciate us divers. We can tell them whats in their pond or pick up trash or help remove that rusty Chevrolet which was dumped in there in 1971. All water is public in Minnesota. If I can ” y in and land on a lake even if all the land is surrounded by private land owners, I still have a right to “ sh/swim/etc there. My favorite dive site was “ ve minutes from my house and exceeded 200 feet deep, but it was totally open and unrestricted to divers, swimmers and “ sherman alike. Not one of the hundreds of places I dove in Minnesota did I have to pay a fee for access to the water. I have also never been asked for a certi“ cation card when diving in a state park or on private land. The dive sites in Minnesota are not without hazards either. The winter cold or entanglement hazards or extreme depths could all become fatal to divers and yet we are all allowed to dive there and allowed to use our own judgment and to dive within our own limits. Here in Florida I have to get special permission to dive almost anywhere inland. The parks all have different fees, operating hours, and rules for divers and many dont allow diving at all. Some want to see certi“ cation cards and some want $25 per day for divers to use the park but $4 for swimmers. Some allow cave diving only and some allow open water diving too. Some allow diver propulsion vehicles and some dont. Some require a certi“ cation for trimix (an expensive breathing gas mixture) even if the cave passage is well within the shallow air recreational limits. In Florida divers are frequently seen trying to improve sites by adding steps to prevent erosion or picking up trash, yet we are still feared or disliked by much of the rest of the community. I think Minnesota has been successful with its open access to anyone who wants to use the water. Why does Florida feel like the complete opposite? Florida has an ever growing population of divers who all want to improve these places for EVERYONE yet we are treated with misunderstanding and segregation, why? Coming from a place that embraces divers, I feel like an outcast here. Reported activity during the week of July 13-19 in the Northwest Region. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: FWC of“ cers from Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Bay, Gulf, and Franklin Counties worked together to provide proactive high visibility patrols targeting unsafe and unlawful behavior on the waterways during the annual Pensacola Blue Angels Air Show. The of“ cers worked in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard-Station Pensacola and the Escambia and Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Of“ ces to ensure a safe event. FWC of“ cers issued several boating citations, warnings, and made three arrests for boating under the influence (BUI). The Special Operations Group (SOG) team assigned to patrol the Little Sabine sandbar area stopped several “ ghts among intoxicated attendees and responded to four medical emergencies. Also, during the Blue Angels Air Show, SOG team members located a backpack containing two IDs and several other items, including a bag of cannabis and rolling papers. Later that evening, Lt. Dan Hahr contacted the owner of the bag and arranged to meet with him. When they met, the owner was quite happy to get his bag back until Lt. Hahr identified himself and asked about the cannabis. The man admitted to smoking cannabis earlier and then losing the backpack. The man was issued a notice to appear for possession of not more than 20 grams of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia. SANTA ROSA COUNTY: FWC of“ cers assigned to Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties in conjunction with the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Of“ ce conducted a search and rescue operation on the upper Blackwater River downstream from Bryant Bridge. The of“ cers received information through Dispatch that a 16-year-old male disappeared while swimming in the river. Approximately two hours into the search, two kayakers located the juvenile halfway between Bryant Bridge and the Blackwater State Park. The of“ cers picked up the juvenile and returned him to his parents. LIBERTY COUNTY: Of“ cer Ben Johnson cited two men for transporting wild hogs alive from an area. This occurred in the Blue Creek area. GULF COUNTY: On the last day of red snapper season, Officers Hal and Matt Webb conducted a resource inspection on a vessel returning to Mexico Beach. The operator stated he was in a hurry to pick up another charter. The operator then said he was on a recreational trip. After the inspection was completed, the vessel was found to be over the limit of red snapper. License checks revealed several passengers had no recreational “ shing licenses. Citations were issued for the violations.

He then decided it was time to go back out into the “ eld and became the park manager at Fort Clinch State Park in Fernandina Beach. I feel like I can contribute the most at the park management level,Ž Scalco says. I see the fruits of my labor.Ž He went through the normal promotional process, but says he is more comfortable dealing with day-to-day operations. Im a park ranger at heart,Ž he says. He wanted to get back in touch with what brought him into the park service, being out in the “ eld and taking in all the natural and cultural resources he enjoys. Scalco wants people to know that Wakulla Springs State Park and lodge are open for business. Although Tropical Storm Debby left them without power for three days and closed the swimming area, he says since then, the park has been very busy. Numbers are up 17 percent from last year. As far as any changes to the park, Scalco says he has no intention of making any changes, just improving on what currently exists. Id like to continue the traditional activities here,Ž he says. As the demographics change, he wants to make sure the park is able to serve that need, but also maintain the special quality and uniqueness of the park. He also wants to expand the educational opportunities at the park and reach out to populations that may not be familiar with it, as well as invite those people who havent been back in a while to visit and bring a friend. Dont keep it a secret,Ž Scalco says. When asked whether DEP had made any decision about whether or not to allow cave diving at Wakulla Springs, Scalco says no decision has been made. They are still reviewing and interpreting the feedback they received from public meetings and meetings with other stakeholders. Scalco says the mission of the park service is to offer resource-based recreation while preserving the natural and cultural resources of the area. Its all about “ nding that balance, he adds.

But in this case, it is all in good-natured fun. At a gathering on Sunday, Aug. 5. in Apalachicola, 12 participants in the 2012 RiverTrek will formally kick off their drives to raise funds for the Apalachicola Riverkeeper, a non-profit organization that advocates for river protection. In mid-October, the RiverTrek group plans to kayak 107 miles over “ ve days on the Apalachicola River from the Jim Wooddruff Dam in Chattahoochee to Apalachicolas Battery Park. Along the way, through blogs and media interviews, they hope to raise awareness about the plight of this unique river system „ especially how it is being starved for water by upriver interests. They also seek to raise at least $10,000 for the Apalachicola Riverkeeper. Thats where the friendly competition comes in. Participant and co-organizer Georgia Ackerman, co-owner of the Wilderness Way, jumpstarted the fundraising by promising her regular customers a free kayak rental to anyone who sponsored her for $35 or more, prompting cries of shameless hucksterismŽ from other participants. In response, RiverTrek participant and Leon County commissioner Bryan Desloge offered „ in jest „ free building permits to people who sponsored him. Fearing theyll be left in the wake by Ackerman and Desloge, co-organizer Doug Alderson, bike shop manager Josh Bolick and several others portrayed themselves as being in a David versus Goliath type struggle to keep up. I need to show that a minnow can swim with sharks,Ž Alderson pleaded to his would-be sponsors. The central goal of the participants is a serious one, however. Whether she is forging through the mountains, roaming through the ” atlands or dancing to the sea, the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint has remained constant,Ž says geologist and participant Alex Reed. She has always given so graciously and we have always taken from her so freely.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 13AContinued from Page 1A The passage of the RESTORE Act has the potential to change Floridas panhandle … and help provide the much needed improvements that our local governments havent been able to support,Ž Brock said. These improvements will help rebuild our suffering local economy.Ž When the process began, the RESTORE Act was not expected to pass, said Brock, who was involved in the process and represented Wakulla County in discussions. The hard work of a lot of people and with the support from Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Steve Sutherland, it did pass, he said. The oil rig exploded in the Gulf on April 20, 2010, and killed 11 people. It was “ nally capped on July 15, 2010, after leaking nearly $4 million barrels into the Gulf. Fines are estimated between $5 billion and $20 billion. The “ nal amount will depend on how much negligence the responsible parties either agree to or as determined by a federal judge. The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council will receive the majority of the penalties, 60 percent, which will be divided into two parts. Half will go to implement the councils comprehensive federal environmental plan, which consists of the secretaries of Interior, Army, Commerce, EPA, Agriculture and Coast Guard; “ ve state members, which will either be the governor or their designee; and advisory committees, according to the Florida Association of Counties. The other half of the 60 percent will be given out to the “ ve states, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, based on oil spill impact. For this 30 percent, a consortium of representatives from each county affected will be created to come up with the allocation formula. Another 35 percent of funds will be given to the five Gulf States in equal shares for ecological and economic restoration. Florida could receive at least $1.12 billion, if the maximum “ ne is imposed of $20 billion. For Florida speci“ cally, 75 percent will go to the eight counties that were listed as affected, which includes Wakulla County. The other 25 percent will go to non-disproportionately impacted counties, according to FAC. But the process for deciding how the funds will be distributed is still being worked out, Brock said. Eligible use of funds include restoration and protection of natural resources, mitigation of natural resources, implementation of marine, coastal or conservation management plan, workforce development and job creation, state parks, infrastructure projects benefitting the economy or ecological resources, coastal ” ood protection, planning assistance, administrative costs, promotion of tourism and promotion of seafood consumption. The last 5 percent will be dedicated to the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration and Science, Observation, Monitoring and Technology Program administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and centers of excellence. The county commission will hold a workshop on the RESTORE Act in August. A date will be set at the Aug. 6 commission meeting. Wakulla could get up to $40M from oil spill “ nesSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Office detectives continue to investigate a possible fraud that occurred on Friday and Saturday, July 20 and July 21 at the Moose Lodge in Panacea, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. A woman, Susan Hayden Daniels, 54, of Jupiter, met with Panacea “ shermen claiming she was representing a Texas law “ rm handling Deepwater Horizon claims. During the course of the two meetings, Daniels ordered 75 meals from Poseys Steam Room. Daniels provided a credit card to pay for the meals but her card only partially covered the cost. WCSO investigators discussed the outstanding bill with Daniels by telephone and she refused to return to Wakulla County to address the issue. As a result, Daniels has an active warrant for defrauding an innkeeper. WCSO investigators have been in contact with representatives of the Florida Attorney Generals of“ ce and Florida Senator Bill Nelsons of“ ce in an effort to determine if any illegal activity has occurred related to the claims process or personal information received from Panacea area commercial “ shermen. State aquaculture of“ cials report that any information regarding dangers of catching or eating Florida seafood is false. Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) of“ cials continue to monitor water quality and report that the water and seafood are not tainted in any way. The public is strongly encouraged to carefully verify anyone claiming to represent their interests in litigation over the Deepwater Horizon claims process which is now based at U.S. District Court in New Orleans. Avoid giving out personal information at any time. An of“ cial site for fraud complaints related to Deepwater Horizon is available to anyone who thinks they may be a victim. The telephone number is: 877-623-3423. The line is active and they are accepting calls. A web site is also available for citizens to visit: www.deepwaterhorizoneconomicsettlement.com/fraud.php. The overall investigation is ongoing and efforts are underway to bring Daniels back to Wakulla County to face charges in Crawfordville.

By JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 25 … Florida House elections are a numbers game. Republicans will control the House after November … that much is clear. But will Democrats pick up enough seats and procedural strength to slow the GOPs agenda? The once-a-decade redistricting process has helped create contested races across the state. In some districts, those races will play out in the Aug. 14 primary elections, while others will involve Republicans and Democrats battling into November. Here are 10 House races that bear watching this year: DISTRICT 7: Rural North Florida voters for generations elected conservative Democrats to the Legislature. But the GOP has made inroads in recent elections and, doubtless, would like to capture the District 7 seat, which effectively became open when Democrat Leonard Bembry decided to run for Congress. The district is massive, stretching from Gulf County to Madison County, and has drawn four Republican candidates and three Democrats. Monticello Republican Halsey Beshears had raised the most money, $152,689, as of July 6, but he and some of the other candidates also have poured their own money into the race … most notably, Port St. Joe Republican Jamey Westbrook has spent $120,000 on his campaign, while Perry Republican Don Curtis has loaned his campaign $100,000. Other candidates in the race include Republican Mike Williams of Madison and Democrats Thomas Dickens of Crawfordville, Robert Hill of Bristol and A.J. Smith of East Point. DISTRICT 17: As he seeks a third term, Rep. Ronald DocŽ Renuart of Ponte Vedra Beach faces two Republican primary opponents and a substantially redrawn district. DISTRICT 21: Like Renuart, Republican Rep. Keith Perry of Gainesville will have to seek votes in a redrawn district that differs dramatically from where he “ rst got elected in 2010. The new district includes western Alachua County and all of Gilchrist and Dixie counties, while Perrys old district stretched from Alachua into Levy and Marion counties. DISTRICT 27: Spreading across the southern half of Volusia County, District 27 could be a sleeper race to watch in November. DISTRICT 30: Rep. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, has taken high-pro“ le stances since getting elected in 2008, including being an outspoken critic of the federal health overhaul and trying to shut down Internet cafes. But he could be in for a slugfest in November, as Maitland Democrat Karen Castor Dentel tries to unseat him in the largely suburban Orlando district. DISTRICT 34: Whether serving in the Legislature or on the state Public Service Commission, outspoken Nancy Argenziano always has kept things interesting. Now, she is trying to return to the House as an independent candidate and is challenging Republican incumbent Jimmie Smith … who also has shown he can make things interesting. DISTRICT 68: The state Democratic Party and labor groups have gotten behind St. Petersburg attorney Dwight Dudley as they eye an open seat in Pinellas County.Some House races to watch this year

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 15ASpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Office won first place in the Florida Law Enforcement Challenge. The competition is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The awards program was held at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando in mid-July. Wakulla County won in a category that includes 25 to 40 road patrol of“ cers on the streets and highways which creates a competition between agencies of similar size. The WCSO received an eagle trophy, 15,000 Department of Transportation points which can be converted into dollars for the purchase of equipment and a key for an opportunity to win a 2012 Dodge Charger. Unfortunately, the WCSO key did not start the Charger which was awarded to another agency. But the agency has used the points from past contests to purchase portable breath test units for DUI stops, radar equipment and laser mapping equipment for accident reconstruction. The purpose of the competition is to encourage law enforcement agencies to use education and traf“ c enforcement to make roads safer for motorists and cut down on traf“ c crashes. The competition judged agencies not only by the number of crashes but by the number of DUI enforcement waves which resulted in a reduction of the number of DUI cases; the Click It Or Ticket seatbelt campaign and motorcycle crashes. The state and federal government looked at crash statistics from 2009, 2010 and 2011 and discovered that Wakulla County motorcycle crashes experienced a reduction from 31 in 2010 to four in 2011. WCSO deputies talked to motorcycle clubs about educating younger members about motorcycle safety and the dangers of operating a motorcycle while intoxicated. Patrols also targeted areas where motorcycles are known to travel. U.S. Highway 98 is a popular travel area for motorcycle riders traveling from the western Panhandle to points east and vice versa. Many of these motorcycle operators are from outside of Wakulla County. The sheriffs of“ ce has conducted seat belt campaigns at Wakulla High School where School Resource Officers stand by the student parking lot exit as students leave for the day. The students are not allowed to leave campus until they buckle their seat belts. The dangers of drinking and driving are also driven home to students with the use of a display vehicle that is placed at the school after being involved in a drunken driving incident. Wakulla County competed for the award with a maximum of “ ve road patrol deputies working at one time with as many as 605 square miles to potentially patrol and respond to calls. The traf“ c enforcement is completed on top of the regular dispatch calls that may call a road patrol deputy off the road to respond to a resident at their home. This years “ rst place “ nish in the Law Enforcement Challenge followed a third place “ nish in the DUI Challenge last year. Statistically, the WCSO has seen a decline in the number of crashes, DUIs and other category items. However, seat belt counts taken by the WCSO at intersections have determined that 81 to 82 percent of motorists are using seat belts. The WCSO would like to see the statistic higher where nearly all motorists wear their seat belts. I am very pleased that the WCSO was able to return from Orlando with a first place award,Ž said Sheriff Donnie Crum. Our number one priority on the roads is the safety of our citizens and we will continue to do whatever it takes to make Wakulla County roads safe.Ž During the summer months the WCSO will be able to fund additional patrols to address drunk drivers and aggressive drivers through a $30,000 Department of Transportation grant. The grant funding will allow deputies to be paid for overtime that the general revenue budget at the sheriffs of“ ce cant address. By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netDavid King, the Panacea tattoo artist charged with grand theft and animal cruelty for shooting a neighbors Vietnamese pot-bellied pig last year, was found not guilty by a jury last week after a daylong trial. Kings defense was that he shot the pig to protect his young son, who had been mauled by a dog only a couple of weeks earlier. Defense attorney Steven Glazer, who represented King, said after the trial on Wednesday, July 25, that the acquittal was was a vindication for his client, whose case had received national attention. A search of Kings tattoo shop uncovered several Ziploc bags of pork in the freezer from the butchered pig. Naomi Huff, owner of the pig, said the animal, named Spam,Ž was 12 or 13 years old and was a family pet that did tricks for candy. She said she asked King for the animals body back to bury it with other pets, but he told her he didnt have it. She asked for the head, and received the same answer. Asked by Assistant State Attorney John Wilson why she wanted the head, Huff said: I didnt want him claiming he killed some big, ferocious animal when he killed some little pet.Ž King said he was in his shop preparing to do a tattoo as his 3-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter were in the yard with a friend. He testi“ ed that his wife came into the shop and told him to grab his gun, that a hog was in the yard and heading for the boy. He got his .32-caliber derringer and stepped outside the shop, pulled his son behind him and shot the pig twice, killing it. He had recently moved to the area from Wisconsin and had never seen a wild hog. He did see the pigs tusks, which were reportedly three to “ ve inches long, as it moved toward his son. Testimony indicated that Kings son had been mauled two weeks earlier by a German shepherdHusky mix that bit the childs face and required surgery. The jury was out for almost an hour before returning a not guilty verdict against King. The truth came out that my client was protecting his son,Ž Glazer said after the jurys verdict. King also had faced charges that he was dealing drugs from his tattoo shop … but was found not guilty in a jury trial a couple of months ago. In that trial, an undercover informant went into the shop to make a drug buy. Glazer argued at the trial that the drug buy was hinky … the informant brought his girlfriend with him, unknown to the cops who were overseeing the operation. Plus, while the informant and other peoples voices are on the tape recording … the informant was wired … Kings voice is not. In his testimony, the informant indicated that another shop worker told King about him wanting to buy drugs and King just nodded and allegedly fetched the drugs for him without saying a word. The jury returned a not guilty verdict on those charges. In another trial last week: Nathan Deanda was found guilty of possession of methamphetamine and possession with intent to sell, but was found not guilty of traf“ cking in meth. Deanda went to trial on Thursday, July 26, and was represented by Tallahassee attorney John Eagen. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath Bueno. According to testimony at the trial, Deanda was picked up by Paul Porretto in his van at the Greyhound bus station in Tallahassee for a ride to south Florida. The men drove to Wakulla County and allegedly sold a half-ounce of crystal meth to a man at a trucking company for $1,100. At some point, though, Porretto allegedly became irritated at Deanda, who was supposed to be his lookout but was talking on his cell phone. Porretto beat up Deanda, even allegedly “ red a shot at him. Deanda called 911 and reported that Porretto had a rolling meth lab in the van.

Page 16A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy LES HARRISONWakulla Extension DirectorThey just appear, creating a landscape come alive with hopping bits and pieces. Much like Moses calling down Gods second pestilence on Pharaoh, Wakulla County is experiencing its own latter day plague-oftoads. To some it is a most nightmarish experience as the tiny creatures animate normally stationary landmarks familiar to all. Sometimes, with a gust of wind, the amphibians will shower down from trees on unsuspecting passersby. The hatch-out of Eastern Spadefoot Toads is a byproduct of Tropical Story Debby. The diminutive creatures are recently metamorphosed toads that can easily sit on a dime in their juvenile phase with room to spare. The torrential rainfall from Tropical Storm Debby prompted the adults to seek bodies of water to lay their eggs. Females can lay up to 2,500 eggs at once, with the eggs hatching tadpoles after a few days. Some fishless ponds have been known to spawn 1 million tadpoles. Five weeks after the storm, the tadpoles are now making themselves known in a big way with a massive transformation into toads. Anyone near a pool, puddle or body of fresh water is likely to encounter these toads. The toad hordes should be gone in a week or so as they disperse from the temporary pools as they search for food, including any unlucky mosquitoes. They can grow to three inches in length if they reach maturity. The plentiful toad supply also serves as food for birds and animals. When the rains slack off and the enviaronment dries the toads will burrow into the top soil and patiently wait for next big rain event to start the cycle over again. This species is very long lived and populations often go for many years without successful rain induced reproductive events.

The effects are harmful and could be long-term … not just for the children but for the state, advocates say. The annual Kids Count report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation ranks Florida 44th in the economic well-being of its children, 38th in their health outcomes and 35th in their educational performance. The state ranks 38th overall. The number of Florida children living in poverty is up 28 percent from 2005 to 2010, the last year for which data were included in the study. That measurement considers such factors as whether the parents have secure employment or the ability to cover their housing costs. Ted Granger, president of the United Way of Florida, said he wasnt surprised by the ranking given the need local agencies are seeing. Economic instability is having a huge and dramatic effect on children,Ž Granger said. The largest group of new homeless are single parents with children. These children, whether or not homeless or in poverty, are part of a group that statistically we know have worse health care outcomes [and] lack the educational opportunities to realize their full potential.Ž In 2010, 23 percent of Florida children were living in poverty. The parents of 34 percent lacked secure employment, up from 28 percent in 2008. Nearly half of Florida households … 49 percent … saw their housing costs grow to 30 percent or more, up from 42 percent in 2005. The number of teens who were neither in school nor working was 10 percent, the same as in 2008. In all these categories, Floridas stats were worse than the national average. I think its a ticking time bomb,Ž said Roy Miller, president of the Childrens Campaign in Florida. Children are exposed now in much larger numbers to poverty and all of its ill effects. So whats going to happen to those children “ ve years, 10 years, [or] 15 years down the road? We dont know.Ž Susan Weitzel, Florida Kids Count director, said the states children are growing up with risk factors that predict they will not succeed in Floridas future economy. When children are going to school hungry and do not know if they have a place to sleep at night, how can they be successful in the classroom?Ž she asked in a statement about the report. David Wilkins, secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families, agreed that his agency is seeing poor children at risk for future dif“ culties. When you see children in poverty over time, you may see them in other parts of the system, such as [the Department of Juvenile Justice] system or child welfare system,Ž he said. Thats what we always have to be careful about and watch. The other thing thats in our state that a lot of other states arent facing to anywhere the same level is the substance abuse and prescription drug problem,Ž Wilkins added. Thats also crossing across that same demographic.Ž But while Wilkins said he wasnt surprised by the “ ndings, he pointed out that the reports 2010 economic data dont include Gov. Rick Scotts job-creating efforts. Scott was inaugurated in January 2011. The issue of poverty in the state is driven almost entirely by the economic situation of jobs and the housing market,Ž Wilkins said. Thats why the citizens elected this governorƒIn the past year, weve reduced unemployment in Florida another two percentage points. So I think were heading in the right direction.Ž And the Kids Count report did have some good news for Florida. The number of uninsured children has dropped slightly, to half a million. Students are doing a bit better in reading and math, although still below the national average. According to the Kids Count “ ndings, while Florida ranked 44th among the states in terms of economic well-being, it was 38th overall, with better outcomes in four other areas. The state ranked 35th in education. The number of Florida children not attending preschool in 2008-2010 was 51 percent, compared to 52 percent in 2005-2007. The number of high school students not graduating on time was 31 percent in 2008-2009, an improvement from 36 percent in 2005-2006. In two categories with 2011 data, 65 percent of fourth graders were not pro“ cient in reading, compared to 70 percent in 2005, and 72 percent of eighth graders were not pro“ cient in math, a slight improvement from 74 percent in 2005. In childrens health, Florida ranked 38th. In 2010, I3 percent of Florida kids lacked health insurance, compared to 18 percent in 2008 … although still below the national average of 8 percent. In 2009, child and teen deaths slowed to 29 per 100,000, down from 37 percent in 2005. The numbers of teens abusing alcohol and drugs dropped from 8 percent in 2005-2006 to 7 percent in 2008-2009. The number of low birth-weight babies stayed at 8.7 percent over the same period, compared to the national average of 8.2 percent. Florida ranked 35th in the family and community category, with 39 percent of children living in singleparent families in 2010 … up from 36 percent in 2005. Between 2000 and 2010, the number of children living in high-poverty neighborhoods grew from 7 to 8 percent. Teen births per 1,000 dropped from 42 in 2005 to 39 in 2009. Between 2005 and 2010, the number of children in families where the head of household lacked a high school diploma dropped from 15 to 14 percent. For childrens advocate Miller, the improvements are welcome but frustrating, since they show where the state has invested money successfully. And I think thats the frustration of the child advocacy community,Ž he said. Why dont we make the investments in all the areas that need help, so that we see investments across the board?...Were seeing investments save money and improve lives. Why arent we making better choices?Ž But the United Ways Granger said the Legislature is between a rock and a hard placeŽ when it comes to investing in children. Weve underfunded these services for decades … probably forever,Ž he said. Were in a situation where weve got these crises, and we have to fund the crises. So its really a dif“ cult balance [lawmakers] have to determine, Do we fund the crisis of the moment, or do we fund something thats going to give us results in “ ve, six, 15, 20 years? And unfortunately, the crises are such that they compel many of us to say weve got to fund the crisis.Ž The Kids Count Data Book is available at http:// datacenter.kidscount.org.

CARRSpecial to The NewsThe double bass had to have a new crush-proof case. There were concerns about whether U.S. Customs Service would consider the rosewood in some of the instruments an illegalŽ importation on the return trip. Overall, preparations for the first European tours of two regional bands that began at the beginning of the year are playing out in Ireland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland this month. Perhaps the most dif“ cult and heart-wrenching aspect of these preparations was Tropical Storm Debby. Rick Ott and Nell McCall, Sopchoppy recording studio producers and musicians with From the HeartŽ music hour, lost everything when their house “ lled with water. A further irony to their predicament was that they were helping out another artists husbands “ ght with leukemia at a fundraiser in Tallahassee when the storm started. By Monday, all was lost. Would they even be able to leave for Ireland with The Currys and Mimi Hearn? They worked hard replacing interior doors, furnishing their uninsured property with donations, and above all, continuing preparations for their once-in-a-lifetime tour and live “ lm production of Ireland. While the From the Heart Music Hour tour enthralls Ireland and even appears at the famed Rose of Tralee Festival, the Coon Bottom Creek Band have packed up all their gear and are now on the continent of Europe. Mischa and Maria Steurer, Austrian natives who moved to Wakulla County 10 years ago, began their tour in Munich, continue to Gundel“ ngen and then can be heard world-wide on the internet on Aug. 8 (http:// stream.freefm.de/listen. pls) before concerts in Switzerland and Austria. For Chelsea Kessler, the youngest rising star of the group, the trip is somewhat scaryŽ but really exciting. I dont speak a word of German,Ž she said during a “ nal rehearsal break at her mothers store, Posh Java in Sopchoppy. The Steurers have taken her under their wings and Europeans will be in for a delightful treat as the band plays a mixture of bluegrass, newgrass,Ž country music and rock n roll. It is feel good music,Ž said Mischa, who is the groups musical director and plays the mandolin. His wife, the enthusiastic upright bass player, is the driving force behind guitarist Red Barnes and banjoist Skip Johns. For both of the touring groups, family participation is key to a successful adventure. But so is the internet. Without it, both Rick Ott and Mischa Steurer said they would not have been able to connect so quickly with venues. We have two vans rented at Shannon, Ireland, and The Currys parents Tom and Betty will drive and help with our gear,Ž Ott said. The Currys, from Port St. Joe, are Jimmy, Tommy and Galen (thecurrysmusic.com), and they will be joined by one-time Wakulla County resident Mimi Hearn (of Mimi Hearn and the Hounddogs fame). Two camera people are also along for the Irish trip, recording segments for a “ ve-segment From the Heart Music HourŽ TV show later this year. The musical ambassadors, while slightly different in styles, will have an opportunity to talk and sing about the pines, the red-tailed hawks, the ups and downs of life as expressed by a myriad of American songwriters. They will also be good promoters of our region, showing off talents Wakulla residents have enjoyed at many festivals throughout the years.

By AMY GEIGERChamber PresidentDear Chamber Members, Last month we held the inaugural event for a new group called Focus Wakulla aimed at young professionals in Wakulla County. Our membership committee chair, Tara Kieser, along with Courtney Peacock and Jessica Revell, lead a group of dedicated individuals to bring this event to fruition. More than 100 professionals came out to join in on the excitement and learn more about the goals that will be the cornerstone of this group. For those of you who may have missed the introduction in an earlier newsletter, FOCUS is an acronym that represents the groups goals: F … Foster and support economic development. O … Optimize networking opportunities. C … Create and cultivate future leaders. U … Understanding and awareness of government processes. S … Strengthen and enrich our community. Focus Wakulla will hold quarterly events that will touch one of these five goals. Ideas for this group include inviting guest speakers who will educate the group on how government works in Wakulla County, holding seminars on how to network and meet others to help you grow your business, having small intimate discussions on the importance of local businesses and supporting them. We will encourage Focus members to participate in regular Chamber events as well. The inaugural event was held at Poseys Dockside Caf in Panacea on June 29.

Page 4B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com S p o t l i g h t o n B u s i n e s s Spotlight on Business B u s i n e s s N e w s f r o m Business News from The Coalition is represented and steered by a Board of Directors, it is a partnership composed of 33 agencies and providers who serve the needs of youth and families in Wakulla. The Coalition also serves as the umbrella organization for a Hunger Relief Team (strong faith partners), Operation Santa (strong business and individual partners), the Healing Arts of Wakulla County (HAWC with growing numbers of artists and health care providers), and most recently ” ood relief work (serving as a repository for donated funds to help victims now and into the days ahead). Tell us about your organization: The Wakulla County Coalition for Youth has been at work in Wakulla County for more than a dozen years, and in 2007 earned its non-profit 501(c)3 designation. The Coalitions work aims to reduce risks to youth and families and to do all possible to help youth become strong and resilient, happy, healthy, and productive into adulthood. The Coalition acts as the catalyst facilitating action and programs to enhance the lives of children through positive behavior and life decision making, family health and wellness. The Coalition knows that youth do better when families do better, and families do better when communities do better. What services, products do you offer? The Coalition is a facilitator and connector. When there is a gap in programs or services at the school, we seek to help “ ll that hole. We connect and leverage resources to the greater good of the entire community. In multiple instances the Coalition is the applying agent for grant monies from public and private sources to initiate programs through member organizations. What sets your business apart from the competition? We do not compete. The coalition exists to provide the data needed to support viable opportunities for resources needed to fill holes and gaps in programs and services needed in Wakulla. We support one anothers grant applications through letters of support or match when needed and look for ways to leverage resources toward a greater good. Members include Disc Village, many counselors, social workers, and therapists as members, NAMI Wakulla, the Department of Health, the Sheriffs Of“ ce, the school district, Refuge House, Fearless Youth led by the Florida National Guard, the Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce and4-H, Hospice, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, faith leaders, the Wakulla County Juvenile Justice Council, Capital Area Community Action Agency, business leaders, Apalachee Center for Community Mental Health, Board of County Commissioners, the Florida Department of Children and Families, 211 Big Bend, Capital City Youth Services, and Capital Area Healthy Start and others are essential coalition members and players in building and sustaining a healthy Wakulla. What should the community/ customer expect when they contact your organization? Expect to be overwhelmed by the vast resources at work in Wakulla County. Opportunities to serve are abundant. We do not have a storefront. The Coalition meets monthly on the “ rst Wednesday of every month at the Wakulla County Public Library, 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Hunger Team, Operation Santa Team, HAWC and other key committee meet as needed throughout the year. The days ahead will focus on an event in late September intended to build food stock and fund reserves for Thanksgiving and Operation Santa. We need YOU! Bring lunch to enjoy during the meeting on Aug. 5, and bring nonperishable food items to the meeting as your entry ticket. This food makes way to the seven churches who have food pantries. If you cant make the full Coalition meeting on Aug. 5, but want to help with food and fund drive events, call 926 3526 to learn the dates of these meetings. How long have you been a Chamber member? On and off for 10 years. Why did you join the Chamber? The business community is one of the most essential sectors in any community. Additional comments: The Coalition is involved in matters of food insecurity (hunger), Operation Santa (a hands up for growing numbers of working poor and those who have no means at all), and most recently Tropical Storm Debby relief efforts. The individuals and families have a long road ahead of them. Several of those families are Coalition leaders and members who were hit hard. The home of WCSO Lt. Bruce Ashley, the Coalitions President, and his wife Nina was lost to ” ooding. Another member, Lisa Russell, lost her home to ” ooding as did others. And yet Bruce Ashley continued his work throughout the community helping others even as he was mucking out his household. Bruce and Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson both donated to the Flood Fund which has helped several with unmet needs to date. The most profound reality out of the flooding was a genuine and aggressive approach to getting things done. A crisis takes its toll but, through genuine service, true leaders emerge and so many many many true leaders live work and play in Wakulla even as they volunteer in service to make Wakulla even better.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 7BBy JO ANN PALMERKeep Wakulla County Beautiful On Saturday, July 21, friends of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful came together for several hours in Sopchoppy removing 2,360 pounds of debris left behind from Tropical Storm Debby. KWCB had been asked to coordinate a cleanup of the Sopchoppy River and the area of Indian Summer, where the flood waters had reached over 36 feet, washing items, including clothes and appliances, into the woods. The scattered debris was trapped where it was ” oating when the water receded, leaving items such as a chair, freezer, canoe, jacket and lots of paperwork hanging almost out of reach. Every trip passing by the overwhelming amount of trash was a constant reminder of the destruction to the residents already reeling from dealing with the damage to their homes. Despite the heat, humidity, merciless mosquitoes and snakes, Commissioners Mike Stewart and Alan Brock, candidates John Shuff, Ralph Thomas and Richard Harden, KWCB friends, Shelley Swenson, Judith Harriss, Bethany Thomas, Scott, Karla, Andrew and Ellie Nelson, Candace Clemons, Lona Wilene Matherne, and Woody Palmer, KWCB Board members Nancy Paul, Durene Gilbert, Ray Cade, Lori Gilbertson and Jo Ann Palmer. Bruce Ashley, president of the KWCB Board, who lost his home to Debby, and who has cleaning yet to do, dedicated his morning to helping remove the unsightly debris. At the end of the morning, the roll-off dumpster, generously donated by Marpan Recycling of Tallahassee, was “ lled to capacity with broken furniture, cans of paint, tires, countless garbage bags of plastic, paper and miscellaneous debris, along with plastic buckets, parts of a beehive, sheetrock, ice chests, an old tarp and broken pieces of wood, just to name some of the items recovered from the dense woods. Stewart. who coordinates the NJROTC for Wakulla Highs Adopt-A-Road program throughout the school year, knows the litter problem from the high school down Rehwinkle, but he was astonished to see how much had been caused by this storm. Among the most unusual items were the chair hanging in the tree, tools and the contents of someones refrigerator ” oating in the creek. It looked like someones refrigerator exploded into the creek, there were eggs and other rotting items,Ž said Shuff. I “ gured all that plastic did not need to make its way to the river.Ž While these volunteers were on the ground, Cynthia Paulson of Palmetto Expeditions, Brenda Pell, Somer, Ethan and Evan Strickland, Capt. James Hodges of St. Marks Charters and his family, Emily, Cara and Kristie Hodges, an outstanding group of Green Guide volunteers were in boats and canoes on the river collecting an assortment of items that had ” oated both north and south of the city park. Wakulla County Administrator David Edwards and his wife Lara, along with their son, recovered an old rusty propane gas tank that they ” oated back to the boat landing. Ralph Thomas, in the spirit of recycling, hopes to make a grill out of it. Paul and Tina Johnson paddled in their canoe and recovered debris along the shoreline. Other items the river runners collected were two blue plastic barrels filled with garbage, furniture cushions, coolers and lots of plastic buckets. They also collected a bench and motorcycle helmet. Scott Nelson, a Sopchoppy resident himself, told me later that some of the residents in the community expressed their appreciation for the help and wanted to get involved with Keep Wakulla County Beautiful now that they have learned what we are about. Those are the comments that mean a lot to us. We work to help maintain the beauty of this community, which extends to lending a hand to all residents. KWCB holds a monthly Green Drinks on the fourth Tuesday of each month. This program is dedicated to bringing the community important information about supporting the sustainability of your life and surrounds. KWCB also hosts programs about interesting topics on local businesses and happenings in our area. On Aug. 28, the program will be an appreciation event for our Adopt-A-Road adoptees. These events are free and open to the public and are held at 6:30 p.m. at Wildwood Resorts 19th Hole. We also meet as a board on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Wildwood. If you are interested in getting involved, some upcoming events include the annual Coastal Cleanup on Sept. 15, Hazardous Waste Day on Oct. 20 and National Forest Cleanup on Nov. 17. This Saturday, Aug. 4, we are having a cleanup for Bruce and Nina Ashley beginning at 9 a.m. Bruce has given so much to this community and were going to give back to him. Contact me at (850) 745-7111 or by email at helpkwcb@gmail. com if you can join us. KWCB will supply all the equipment. Thanks to everyone who got involved with the Sopchoppy cleanup.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 – Page 9BBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 27 … Any Floridian with a mailbox, a telephone or a TV probably realized this week that an election is approaching. Just when people will be able to vote might actually be up in the air. As voters waded through nasty campaign mailers sent out by shadowy groups that may or may not have been related to candidates, as surrogates for the presidential candidates ” ew all over the place, a Democratic congresswoman “ led a federal lawsuit over the dates when Florida voters can start casting their ballots. Many Florida voters may not realize how close the primary is … early voting for most of us starts at the end of next week, under the states new election law, which is about to be used for the “ rst time since being overhauled in 2011. But if the law hadnt changed, voting would have started at the beginning of next week. Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a Democrat, joined several Duval County residents in a federal lawsuit to block changes in Floridas election law that reduced the number of early voting days from 15 to 10. The new law, which passed over the objections of Democrats, also gives local election supervisors more discretion to decide exactly when polls will be open for early voting. Browns lawsuit alleges that the changes violate the U.S. Constitution and the federal Voting Rights Act. Early voting has worked extremely well for all Floridians and especially for African American voters,Ž Brown said. In fact, more than any other racial or ethnic group, African Americans have come to rely on early voting.Ž Election officials, however, say the lawsuit is misguided, arguing that Florida voters will still have ample time to cast ballots before Election Day. Browns is the latest crusade against perceived Republican-backed efforts to prevent a repeat of 2008 when a wave of new voters cast ballots early and ” ooded the polls on Election Day. Critics say the restrictions are thinly veiled attempts to make it harder for Democrat-leaning voters to cast ballots. Backers say its a way to curb costs for cash-strapped election supervisors and prevent fraud. Even former Gov. Charlie Crist jumped on the letthe-people-voteŽ wagon this week as he told MSNBC such efforts were unconscionable.Ž Crist, a Republican turned independent (and sometimes mentioned as a potential Democratic candidate), was the driving force behind efforts to automatically restore voting rights to most felons who had completed their sentences. Crists reforms were short lived. Among their “ rst actions, Gov. Rick Scott and the newly elected, all-Republican Cabinet rescinded the directive and made it even more difficult for felons to get their civil and voting rights restored. The idea of making it more difficult to exercise this precious right ƒ is just unconscionable to me,Ž said Crist. ENVIRONMENTALISTS GO TO COURT Meanwhile, environmental groups in separate actions filed legal challenges this week in an effort to increase water ” ows to the Caloosahatchee River, and reduce nutrient-laden phosphorus levels in the Everglades. On Friday, the Florida Audubon Society “ led legal petitions to force the South Florida Water Management District to enforce more stringent laws put in place five years ago to reduce phosphorus levels coming into the Everglades. Audubon is seeking administrative hearings on separate permits granted to U.S. Sugar Corp., Sugar Farms Cooperative and the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative that the environmental group says do not require individual farms to reduce phosphorus releases to permissible levels, a requirement that began in 2007. Water management of“ cials say phosphorus levels have dropped signi“ cantly since 1994 and the district continues to work with farmers to lower that number even further. Earlier in the week, environmentalists “ led suit in federal court to force the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clean up the Caloosahatchee River by letting the river ” ow. The Corps operates three water stations on the river that control water levels downstream. In times of drought, the Corps largely cuts off the ” ow, leading to stagnation on the lower river that in turn leads to algae blooms and unhappy property owners and tourism of“ cials. PRISONS An appeals court this week ruled against Attorney General Pam Bondi in a longrunning battle over 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. MORE COURT FIGHTS Meanwhile, the saga of former Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer continued to play out for political observers, with a few news organizations this week reporting on recordings from the investigative “ le in which Greer acknowledged pulling down a lot of money while fundraising for the party, and wondering what he did with it. And in another blast from the recent past, former House Speaker Ray Sansom late this week sued to try to recoup his legal costs from his own downfall. Sansom was ousted as speaker and later quit the Legislature over allegations of improperly steering state money when he was budget chairman. But in a criminal case, he was cleared, and now he wants to be repaid the money he spent defending himself. CITIZENS BOARD APPROVES RATE HIKES The governing board of Citizens Property Insurance Corp approved tentative rate hikes averaging at least 8.8 percent for its 1.4 million policyholders. The board also stepped down from efforts to charge new policyholders more and instead will try to increase other costs in an effort to show all Citizens customers the real cost of their below market-rate, state-backed insurance. STORY OF THE WEEK: As the primary approaches and election intensity increases, the fight over the states election law continued, going to federal court in a new lawsuit, “ led by Rep. Corrine Brown. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Hes a nice guy.Ž Former Gov. Charlie Crist when asked what he thought of U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and whether hed be qualified to serve as vice president if he were chosen as a running mate for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.WEEKLY ROUND-UP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Election time is a-comin’, but when? The Wakulla News PER COPY75¢75¢ 3 QUARTERS COIN RETURN By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netTwo people are dead and a third is recovering after an apparent home invasion in Wakulla Station on Wednesday, March 30. The suspect in the murders is 24-year-old Andrew Michael Wilson, the father of a 1year-old child who lived in the home. Wilson was arrested in Stewart County, Ga., and was later transported back to Wakulla County, where he is being held without bond on two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. The childs mother, Gabrielle McKenzie, 19, is currently in a Tallahassee hospital where she was being treated with a cut throat. The dead men are John Robert McKenzie, 62, and Patrick Lee Pittman, 24. While an autopsy is pending, the sheriff said the mens injuries are consistent with knife wounds. The child was injured and suffered some bruising in the attack and was found covered in blood by deputies and was inconsolable. The child was released to a family member. The murders took place in a single-wide mobile home on Field Loop Road, in an area off Bloxham Cutoff in Wakulla Station. Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey said evidence indicates it was a premeditated attack: Wilson apparently parked about a quarter-mile from the home and went inside sometime in the early morning hours. Investigators at the scene found a bloodtrail and footprints leading from the home to where they believe Wilson parked his car. Wilsons “ ngers were partially severed in the attack … its not clear if the wound was from a knife or, as some investigators speculated, whether one of the victims may have bitten Wilsons “ ngers. It has been con“ rmed by investigators that it was Pittman who made the 911 call to the sheriffs of“ ce around 3:30 a.m. that brought deputies to the scene. Wilson was identi“ ed as a suspect by Gabrielle McKenzie, who spoke his name, the sheriff said. After issuing a BOLO (Be On the Lookout alert) Wilson was picked up after he wrecked his vehicle in south Georgia. Sheriff Harvey said it is believed Wilson was on his way to Columbus, Ga., where he reportedly has some connections. The sheriff also speculated that the wreck may have been due to blood loss from his hand injuries.

Page 10B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com -Janet By DAVID WHITE If you ask a sommelier to name her favorite grape, theres a good chance shell say Riesling. If youre surprised, then its probably because you associate Riesling with the sweet, simple German wines of yesteryear, like Blue Nun, Liebfraumilch, and Piesporter. These wines were … and still are … affordable and approachable. And theyll always have fans. But they do a disservice to true Riesling. Fortunately, that could soon change. New York City sommelier and restaurateur Paul Grieco is on a mission to make sure that Americans give Riesling the respect it deserves. Griecos crusade began in 2008, when he announced a plan to focus on Riesling all summer long at Terroir Wine Bar in New York Citys East Village. In a single-minded attempt to get guests to at least try this noble grape,Ž Grieco offered only Riesling as his by-the-glass white wine offering. As he tells it, the staff was incredulous and the guests suspect, but with 30 different glass pours we set upon a massive inspirational and educational scheme that was challenging and fun.Ž His campaign quickly took off. In 2010, 14 wine bars in New York joined together to create a Riesling Pub Crawl; several well-known Riesling producers visited the city; and Grieco organized a concert where only Riesling was served. Last year, about 200 bars and restaurants across the country took part by hosting events, offering specials, and agreeing to spread the gospel of Riesling. This summer, the Summer of RieslingŽ attracted nearly 500 participants. (To see if anyone is participating in your community, head to www.SummerOfRiesling. com.) Misconceptions still abound, but consumers are starting to recognize that Riesling is a serious grape. Over the past several years, Riesling sales have steadily risen. And sommeliers are “ nding that consumers are extremely receptive to the grape. Rieslings greatest strength is its versatility. First, theres its geographical diversity. While its ancestral home is Germany, where Riesling has been grown in the Rhine and Mosel Valleys since the 14th century, its also the most planted grape in the Alsace region of France. The grape is also experiencing a resurgence in the United States, especially in New Yorks Finger Lakes. And there are sizeable plantings of Riesling in Austria, New Zealand, and Australia. Theres also its sweetness. Some Rieslings are syrupy and lusciously sweet -and work as dessert. Others are bone dry, pairing best with raw “ sh, subtle cheeses, and other light dishes. Most fall somewhere in between, and are the perfect match for spicy Asian cuisine, like Thai and Indian. All are marked by high acidity, which is why its such an adaptable food wine. And all are extremely fragrant. Its no wonder why so many sommeliers love Riesling. Dont ever let Rieslings sweetness trick you into thinking its not a serious wine. Sommeliers also evangelize about Riesling because its so good at capturing terroir, or a wines sense of place. In part, this is because most Riesling is fermented in stainless steel, so it isnt manipulated through oak aging or other winemaking techniques. The grape is remarkably transparent … German researchers have found a link between soil type and ” avor in Riesling. Riesling grapes sourced from slate vineyards tend to produce wines with citrus aromas, while grapes sourced from limestone vineyards typically result in more tropical fruit aromas. As Robert Parker, the worlds most famous wine critic, recently explained, If you want to talk about terroir, talk about German Rieslings or Alsace Rieslings, where the wines are naked … theres no makeup.Ž Even though Riesling sales have been rising, Grieco and other Riesling proselytizers still have their work cut out … Riesling accounts for just 5 percent U.S. wine sales. But its not by accident that Riesling has long been known as the noblest of the noble grapes.Ž So dont be surprised if the next time you dine out, your waiter steers you towards a glass of Riesling. David White, a wine writer, is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com. His columns are housed at Wines.com, the fastest growing wine portal on the Internet.

Page 16B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy WORKFORCE PLUSSpecial to The NewsDebbie Johnson has worked for more than three decades in various medical assistant roles. With that extensive experience in the healthcare “ eld, she knew that her time at a urologist of“ ce and an eye specialist clinic would serve her career well. My strength is my medical experience,Ž Johnson said. I worked both the business side and the clinical part so Im a good swing person and I can work either in a team or by myself.Ž Its easy to imagine how her world was upended after she was laid off after eight years. It wasnt personal … it was totally administrative,Ž Johnson said. We had to privatize the healthcare we offered.Ž Despite her advance warning of the restructuring, Johnson was taken aback emotionally. I was in shock. I had thousands of thoughts going through my head, like What am I going to do now? Basically what normal people do when theyre laid off.Ž Johnson immediately recognized an obstacle in her job search: she didnt know how to begin. I knew nothing about the way you approach a new employer,Ž Johnson said. I had no idea about how interviewing has changed over the years.Ž Feeling apprehensive about being a mature job seeker, Johnson decided to go to the Wakulla Workforce Plus to get started. She knew little about the non-pro“ t when she sought assistance. All I knew was that it was next to Ming Tree,Ž she said. What she saw when she entered the office erased her feelings of being alone in her job search. When I walked in the of“ ce, there were others like me. There were other faces just like mine, peoples feelings in disarray,Ž Johnson said. Sure enough this one gentleman had worked in the same place for 25 years and his company just dropped him all in one day, just like me.Ž The Workforce Plus staff supported Johnson in starting a strong job search. They started with the basics: creating an email for her and explaining how to use it. At “ rst, Johnson wanted to omit her email address from her resume because she didnt have one. A Workforce Pus staff member changed her mind. No Debbie, Mike Riggins told me. You need to have an email on there. Or all those employers will look at your resume and think you are going to be too hard to get in touch with.Ž Johnson said. Staff helped her to create a new resume complete with an email address. After those resumes went out, I got four or “ ve calls,Ž Johnson added with pride. The next challenge Johnson had to address was interviewing. I thought I would be asked what attributes I had that made me quali“ ed for this position and then chitchat,Ž Johnson said. She quickly realized that would not be the case. During my “ rst interview I had to take three tests. It blindsided me! I had no idea.Ž Despite the surprise of the interview assessment, Johnson passed the test. Her success didnt end there. After learning how to interview, how to create a resume, how to search for vacancies on the computer and how to create and send emails, Johnson felt like she was “ nally in control of her future. I got three offers in the same day. I then weighed them logically with healthcare and retirement. The Records Clerk position at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce won,Ž Johnson said. Theyre like family. I love working here. Everybody is great.Ž With a turnaround of only one month, Johnson credits Workforce Plus with her success in navigating her job search. Workforce Plus kept me from going insane. I dont know what I would have done without them,Ž Johnson said. Theyre so courteous and so willing to help. Ive never seen anything like it … their compassion for helping people.Ž Without the Workforce boards help, Johnson knows her career transition would have been entirely different. Johnson said she wouldnt have left her house had it not been for the optimism she gained from Worforce Plus. Her positive experience has enabled her to shed light on the process for other individuals who “ nd themselves looking for employment. First and foremost, you need to go to Workforce Plus. They have great knowledge and they are very professional, and many of them have been in the same situation and they can lead you in the right direction,Ž Johnson said. Then, learn how to interview.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies (RESTORE) of the Gulf Coast Act was signed by President Obama on July 6, since that time, representatives from Florida have been meeting to develop its state plan for how money will be distributed. The Florida Association of Counties held a meeting on July 19 with representatives from Florida cities and counties to begin the planning process. Under the RESTORE Act, 80 percent of Clean Water Act nes from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in 2010 will be used for Gulf Coast recovery. It created the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund to restore both the economic and environmental health of the Gulf Coast. Early estimates show that Wakulla County could receive $10 million to $40 million for local improvements, with the potential for much more, according to County Commissioner Alan Brock.

Story on Page 13ABy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netPete Scalco is no stranger to Wakulla County, so when he was given the opportunity to become the park manager at Wakulla Springs State Park, he says it was an easy decision. We love it here, Scalco says. Scalco took his post at the park on July 2. The former park manager, Brian Fugate, left Wakulla to be the new assistant bureau chief for Florida Park Service District 2. District 2 oversees all parks from Inverness to Fernandina and from Jacksonville to the Suwannee River, according to Jennifer Diaz, external affairs manager for the Florida Park Service. Scalco and his wife, Pamela, have been coming to the area for years and even purchased property on Spring Creek Road in 1993. They recently finished building their home and always wanted to retire there. His neighbor and friend is Sandy Cook, a former park manager at Wakulla Springs. We really like the atmosphere here, Scalco says. Its old Florida. His children, Alexi and Peter, grew up fishing in a sink located on their property in Wakulla County. Its our little place of enchantment he says. Scalco, a native Floridian, has worked for the Florida Park Service since 1985. He started as a park ranger for a new state park, Cayo Costa State Park, a barrier island park only accessible by boat. The state had recently purchased the park from the county who was going to abandon it. Scalco was one of the members of the initial crew that rebuilt the park, including cabins and trails. It was like Gilligans Island, he says. He decided to join this experiment because he always loved the outdoors. His studied environmental studies and public administration at the University of West Florida. I was bitten by the bug, Scalco says.Continued on Page 12A Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 29th Issue Thursday, August 2, 2012 Two Sections Two Sections75 Cents 75 Cents k h h h k l l h Published Weekly, Read Daily Published Weekly, Read DailynewsThe WakullaPublic Notices .................................................................Page 3A The Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 6A Obituaries .......................................................................Page 7A Community .....................................................................Page 8A School .............................................................................Page 9A Outdoors ......................................................................Page 10A Water Ways ...................................................................Page 11A Sheriffs Report................................................................Page 14A News Extra! .....................................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Taking Care of Business ...................................................Page 3B Weekly Roundup ..............................................................Page 9B Classi eds ......................................................................Page 11B Legal Notices .................................................................Page 11B Comics ...........................................................................Page 15BINDEX OBITUARIES RJ Crum Sr. Don Gregory Davis Elmer Terry ET Dawkins Jerry Robert Mackin Ann Denson Poucher Kelly C.

The National Weather Service issued a Tornado Warning for the Crawfordville area and an indication of tornado activity was observed on Stokley Road, Rough Cut Road and Whiddon Lake Road. The WCSO dispatch received numerous calls from citizens about heavy rain, near zero visibility and many downed trees and powerlines. Two homes reported damage as a result of falling trees. A home on Stokley Road had damage to a bedroom from a falling tree. A home on Rough Cut Road received damage from a very large tree falling on the home. Damage was estimated from moderate to major. Neither of the families accepted assistance offers from the American Red Cross and no injuries were reported at any of the locations. Wakulla County Road and Bridge staff cleared a large tree out of Stokley Road near David Kinsey Road with a front end loader. With access issues caused by the tree, deputies made contact with homeowners on foot to make sure everyone was unharmed. WCSO deputies and FireRescue personnel responded to the area to keep residents from driving into energized powerlines until power company of cials could respond. Some of the residents of the area reported power outages lasting longer than seven hours.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netWakulla County was recently noti ed that it would be receiving a credit of $75,000 in Medicaid backlog, according to Deputy County Administrator Tim Barden. Barden said the county had anticipated a credit of $95,000 because of double billing. However, we are still working with the AHCA (Agency for Health Care Administration) to get their calculations so we can make a recommendation to the board on whether to accept that amount, Barden said. The amounts must be certi ed to the Department of Revenue on Aug. 1 and the counties have until Sept. 1 to accept or reject that amount. Early estimations showed that Florida owed $325 million in backlog Medicaid bills, but since that time representatives from AHCA have met with counties to clear up any errors. That number is now $172.2 million, with seven counties receiving a credit, according to the Florida Association of Counties. This year, we are fortunate to be one of the few counties in Florida who are owed money back, but we are not sure what this process will provide for in the future, said County Commissioner Alan Brock. This process started after the controversial House Bill 5301 was passed in the legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Scott on March 29. The new law deals with state Medicaid billing and changes the way each countys contribution is collected. The law will require each county to pay its share of disputed Medicaid bills going back 12 years to May 1 of this year. For past due billings, each county must pay 85 percent of the amount due over the next ve years. Wakulla County was lucky to not have to pay any of the disputed bills, but instead will receive a credit. However, going forward, the state will withhold a portion of the countys revenue sharing or one-cent sales tax distributions for Medicaid bills. Instead of receiving a bill, the county will receive a statement of what was taken out. Previously, AHCA provided counties with a monthly bill listing Medicaid residents for which the county is responsible for paying. Counties were able to review the information to verify the individuals county of residence and determine whether the bill was accurate. If it was correct, the bill was paid. If it was incorrect and the person was not a county resident, the amount of the bill was denied and sent back to AHCA. The local government medicaid payment process is complicated, and has needed correcting for years, Brock said. This process that is moving forward has been rushed, I dont think there has been proper time for review, and I am not sure what the steps will be in the future. The AHCA is now in the process of developing the proposed rules to implement the legislation. Counties were given an opportunity to make recommendations prior to the rules being nalized. A public hearing was held on June 1 and another was held on July 26. While AHCAs efforts to correct these problems are appreciated, they are indicative of the need for a rule that recognizes the billing systems remains imperfect, said Chris Holley, executive director of FAC, in a letter to the deputy secretary of AHCA. FAC has worked hard with counties and the AHCA to address the concerns in Medicaid billing. Barden said similar concerns have been raised by himself and other county representatives. Some of these recommendations were: to consider creating an internal agency appeal process option for disputing future bills to save the parties from having to settle the issues in an adversarial Florida Division of Administrative Hearing; and provide for a one-time advanced refund request on the preliminary backlog amount, especially due to the large number of inter-county transfers which counties are seeing for the very rst time. It was also suggested that AHCA increase the level of detail in its monthly receipts to counties to include a rolling reconciliation in order to promote better accountability and tracking, Barden said. Wakulla is one of 55 counties who has joined in a lawsuit with FAC to challenge to the constitutionality of the law, as well as its legality. The lawsuit was led on May 11 in the 2nd Judicial Court in Leon County. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter meeting for more than a year, the Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee has come up with numerous ideas, but the follow through has been minimal. This is partly because of the amount of time spent trying to get accurate data for county buildings to determine energy consumption. The main focus of the committee was to nd ways to reduce expenditures and the idea was to determine which county facilities were using the most energy and target those. However, because square footage calculations, meter numbers and building names have been confusing, it has taken longer than anticipated. At the recent meeting in July, Chairperson Elinor Elfner resigned from the committee. She said she felt the committee uncovered some interesting items and came up with great ideas, but little had been done. She added that where the committee is going and what it should be focused on was up to County Administrator David Edwards, who, she said seemed to be on board with the idea that conserving energy saves money. Its time for me to get out of the picture, Elfner said. The committee can only advise the county administrator and county commission and cant make decisions. The other committee members agreed that they needed some direction. I think David gets it, said Commissioner Lynn Artz. He understands. She said the county is currently moving forward on developing a maintenance schedule, which has been said over and over again by Dan Ard of Talquin Electric. He advises the committee about energy conservation measures. But to perform preventative maintenance, there needs to be an increase in the facilities department budget, Artz said. Otherwise, we are always in crisis mode, she said. The committee has also looked at creating an automated system for the disbursement forms for electric bills that would include electric usage broken down for each department. Previously, the disbursement forms were entered manually and Artz said a lot of people werent lling them out all the way. Once the county moves to the automated systems, they will be able to track their energy use for each department. Artz also suggested creating a revolving green fund for each department. A portion of money saved by energy saving measures would go into this fund and be used for improvements or upgrades to facilities in that department. She also said a portion of the savings could be given to employees as a bonus. Ard said education and creating incentives is the best way to get things done. You cant mandate changes, Ard said. You have to get everybody involved. The committee also planned to make the recommendation to Edwards that the county get two different estimates for retrofitting their outdoor and indoor facilities. Knight Energy Management attended a previous meeting and gave a proposal about what they could do for the county facilities. They retro t largescale facilities with the latest LED lighting technology with no up-front costs. The committee agreed they should obtain two estimates from two different companies to nd the best deal. They also recommended the county get an estimate for installing controls on lighting, motion sensors and timers. The next meeting will be held on Sept. 19 at 10:30 a.m. in the commission administration conference room.COUNTY COMMISSIONWakulla will receive $75,000 Medicaid creditCounty Energy Conservation Committee loses a member e county had anticipated a credit of $95,000 because of double billing.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIt has been more than a month since Tropical Storm Debby raged through Wakulla County and dumped buckets upon buckets of rain on the area. Shortly after the storm, President Obama approved a declaration for individual assistance and Disaster Recovery Center was opened in Crawfordville. Since July 5, the center has been visited by 668 people. On Monday, Aug. 6, the DRC will transition into a Disaster Loan Outreach Center ran by the Small Business Administration. The focus of the center then shifts from services homeowners and renters to businesses, said Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesperson Tim Tyson. A staff member from FEMA will still be on hand to help people register for individual assistance, ll out an application, check the status of their application or make changes to it. However, starting Monday, all state agencies and volunteer organizations will no longer be represented at the center, but those agencies are still available to help. The center is located at the extension of ce, 84 Cedar Avenue, and the hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. The daily visits to the center have dropped signi cantly which is why it is going through this transition. Previously, the daily average was 25 and the last couple of days only three people have visited the DRC, Tyson said. Tyson said once the state and FEMA feel they have reached everyone in the area through individual assistance, they close up shop and move on. The Disaster Loan Outreach Center will close at the end of business on Thursday, Aug. 9. There will no longer be a center. That will be the end of the physical presence of FEMA, Tyson said. Other counties, such as Duval, Pasco and Pinellas, are still seeing daily counts of more than 40, Tyson said, and ve others are seeing more than 25 a day, so they will remain open. Once the DRC closes, people will still be able to register with FEMA and apply for assistance until the beginning of September, or 60 days from the declaration. This can be done over the phone by calling 1-800-6213362 or going online at www.disasterassistance.gov. If people havent registered and nd out after the deadline that there is some kind of damage to their property, such as mold or mildew, they will have no recourse to get assistance from FEMA, said Tyson. People also need to be aware that the incident period ended July 26. People will now have to prove that the damage happened before then. In Wakulla County, 552 people have applied for assistance from FEMA and $766,313 has been approved, with $667,050 for housing assistance and $99,262 for other needs, according to Tyson. Statewide, more than 12,843 have requested FEMA assistance and $17.5 million has been approved. SBA has given out $5.9 million in home loans and one business loan for $22,500. Tyson also encouraged people who received a loan application from the SBA to complete it and turn it back in. If they dont, then they will not be eligible for FEMA assistance. No one is required to accept the loan if they are approved. They also do not have to accept the entire amount of the loan. And if someone isnt approved for the loan, they are sent back to FEMA where they may be eligible for assistance.Disaster Recovery Center will shift to Disaster Loan Outreach Center TROPICAL STORM DEBBY AFTERMATH FILE PHOTORed Cross volunteers assist a victim at the DRC shortly after Debby.

A story in last weeks Wakulla News on hardship assistance deadline extended for solid waste and re MSBU included incorrect gures on qualifying income levels. To qualify for hardship assistance, the gross income for the occupants of a property must be equal to 30 percent or less of the federal low income limit. A family of two must make less than $15,050 For one person that income level is $13,200. For three people it is $16,950. For a four-person household is $18,800, veperson is $20,350, sixperson is $21,850, sevenperson is $23,850 and eight-person is $24,850. In a story in the July 19 edition of The Wakulla News, At rst ush, Ouzts Toos toilet garden is a little different, the last name of the owner was incorrect. It should have read Dorothy White. The Wakulla News regrets the errors. Editor, The News: An open letter to my fellow Wakulla Countians: Dear Wakulla Countians, I was born here in 1953, and theres not anything for our kids to do. We need a place for our kids to go, maybe a skating rink with an arcade. Our kids are all getting into trouble. We need to start a move for a donation of land and our contractors could donate time and labor to build such a place. Of- cers would donate time to such a place to help our kids stay out of trouble. We have needed one for 50 years. I believe some of us who have lived here know this and have known this for years. We are older now and can offer to donate some of the money. Our building supplier would give some material, Lowes and Home Depot would help also, our citizens would give labor to help our contractors build this skating rink and arcade. We need to help our kids stay out of trouble! With all the contractors we have, and carpenters, one or two county fees could be waved. We could put jars around town and our banks would help. We can do this, folks, to help our kids stay off the streets. The county has that big piece of property on Lower Bridge Road (MLK Memorial). All the underground is ready. Lets do this, folks. Michael Moore Crawfordville Editor, The News: Since becoming a public servant in 1997, I have always avoided publicly supporting other candidates, in order to keep the of ce as independent and nonpartisan as possible. I am making an exception in this approach for my friend and colleague Robert Hill. Robert is the Clerk of Court in neighboring Liberty County, where he does a great job. Robert is universally respected by his fellow Clerks. Earlier, Robert Hill was a public school teacher and coach for more than two decades, and had served a term as School Superintendent in Liberty County as well. Local government in general, and the of ce of Clerk of Court in particular, is not well understood in Tallahassee these days. I believe Robert can bring more effective representation to the state capital on ALL the important issues we face. I know Robert Hill to be a ne Christian and family man with conservative, North Florida values. These attributes, along with his experiences in leadership in local government will be extremely valuable to Wakulla County and the other counties in District 7 as well. I hope you will join me in the Democratic primary on Aug. 14 and vote for Robert Hill for State House! Brent Thurmond Wakulla Clerk of Court Crawfordville Editor, The News: The Wakulla County School District is celebrating its seventh consecutive year as an A rated district, one of only 14 districts in the state to receive this rating in 2010-11 and the only one in the Big Bend in 2010-2011. It consistently exceeds the state graduation rate and leads all rural districts in offering advance placement courses. These accomplishments would not be possible without the hard work and professionalism of the countys teachers and administrators, and the support of the men and women of the Wakulla County School Board. Our son, brother and uncle -Michael Scott needs your vote. Mike is the incumbent School Board candidate for District 2. He has served as a member of the School Board for the past 16 years. He was raised and educated in Wakulla County. We are proud of Mikes record of service as School Board Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and volunteer within the schools. We know how important the mission of keeping Wakullas public schools on top has been to Mike and ensuring the best educational opportunities for all of the children of Wakulla County. In this time of uncertainty, there is no substitute for experience. The family of Michael Scott would like to thank you for your continued support, and we hope we can count on your vote for Mike on Aug. 14. Avery & Barbara ScottKeith & Angela Scott Brau (WHS Class of 1977) Priscilla Scott Brau (WHS Class of 1979)J. B. & Shanna Taylor WebbShelby (WHS Class of 2001) & Carol TaylorEditor, The News: I am confused: the issue of drainage and impassable roads within Wakulla Gardens was addressed by placing a stone material over the existing dirt road. No poll taken to see if this material was a suitable road covering or if this material would resolve the problem. Now it has come to light that this product had created another problem an irritating dust. County commissioners want now to poll the residents to nd agreement for to an assessment to pave the roads. The key issue at hand is not the dust and is not the drainage these are public roads not private roads. Payments for repairs and for drainage must come from the county not from individuals who own homes on those roads. After all, were the residents on Rehwinkle Rd polled and assessed for its repaving ?? It is these issues that have forced me to cast a NO on the ballot. Bob Mason Crawfordville Editor, The News:Commissioners, who last year raised your taxes on lights, phone, internet, cable, propane and garbage, are ready to use millions of our state transportation dollars to expand the Panacea airstrip for a few hobby pilots, and make a 20-year commitment for our county to cover operating costs. Pilots from Tarpine, a y-in subdivision beside the airstrip, say expansion will boost the economy and make their ying safer. Commissioners who agree are ignoring these facts: There are better places to invest $3+ million in a county airport than the remote, land-locked and ood-prone Panacea airstrip. Property taxpayers have to subsidize small public airports were subsidizing Panaceas today. Wetlands must be lled in to pave the Panacea strip; run-off will kill marine life in Ochlockonee Bay and increase ooding in homes. Costly lawsuits from homeowners in the expanded ight path are probable. And property values along Surf Road will decrease, as will county revenue, and youll make up the loss. So who bene ts? The hobby pilots, of course, along with a developer who will sell his unsellable swampland to the county expanding the airstrip. Who will lose? The rest of us. The same commissioners who want you to raise our county sales tax in November to build roads will vote on Aug. 6, for a bigger playground for pilots. Upset? Then tell David Roberts at the Florida Department of Transportation (414-4513) to stop wasting our tax dollars, and, come November, vote out the big-spenders we call commissioners. Dana Peck dpeck4@gmail.comEditor, The News: Weve been so busy reconstructing our lives since the Debby ood that until now we havent taken the time to give proper thanks. So many people from my Eden Springs co-workers, neighbors and friends, to volunteers weve never met made visits and calls offering assistance. Once again my neighbors, the McClains, their daughter, Cecelia, and her fiance, Corey, went to extraordinary efforts to assist us even though they were equally in distress. We are fortunate to have these incredibly sel ess neighbors. Special thanks also to our friends, Alex and Jennifer Ayotte, who didnt take no for an answer. In fact, they actively guided us every step of the way, putting every resource into action including manpower, babysitting, advice, equipment and a whole lot of bug spray! It has been a lesson in human kindness that has helped us grow and which we shall never forget. Tess, Sven, Jack and Joey Coetzee and Thelma Letchworth SopchoppyCorrectionsHeads up, Wakulla taxpayers Endorsement for Robert Hill Family asks support of Mike Scott She will vote for Melisa Taylor A vote of no on Wakulla Gardens roads anks to neighbors for the help Lets build something for the kidsREADERS WRITE:Editor, The News: Mrs. Melisa Taylor is a name that is associated with so many high school accomplishments and milestones in preparing for furthering the education of my friends and myself. I know her as my Advanced Placement Language and Composition teacher, my English 4 Honors teacher, one of my senior sponsors and the smile that would greet me as I walked into The Learning Curve for another tutoring session. But most of all, I, and many others, know her as the perfect example of an excellent teacher and mentor. I, as a student, agree that Mrs. Taylor has this magic when it comes to her students and our learning experience. Everyone has their own theories on where this magic comes from, but I believe it is her ability to take her lessons and experiences from being a parent herself, and the way she never forgets what its like to be a student, and incorporates those perspectives into her everyday teaching strategy. This creates a respectful and balanced relationship between teacher and student and fosters an effective learning environment. This is also a quality I would like to see on the School Board. When Melisa Taylors campaign for School Board District 2 was announced, I was thrilled. The reason is because along with teaching English in the classroom, she has gone over and beyond to set time aside and help guide me, and many others, through the process of what it takes to reach our individual goals after high school. For that reason, I was beyond willing to help her reach her goals. I know she is the most quali ed candidate. I am currently 18 years old, and I will have to vote early between August 4-11 for School Board District 2 because I leave to start my freshmen year of college at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. This is an adventure that would not be possible without the tutoring from The Learning Curve and Mrs. Taylors guidance. I know that she will be a balanced addition to the school board with her experience as a parent, student advocate, and her impressive 28 years of teaching. Im voting for Mrs. Melisa Taylor for School Board District 2 because she is extremely quali ed, knowledgeable, and I positively know that she will make a wonderful difference in our school district. She is most de nitely a fresh perspective. Molly Vise mollyvise@hotmail.comNo negative political lettersPolitical season is upon us already. As the candidates get their campaigns in full swing, it will be the policy of The Wakulla News not to print negative Letters to the Editor. If you want to write a letter in support to endorse your favorite candidate, by all means, send it in. But it isnt necessary to tear down or smear the rival(s) in order to bolster your favorite. And the negativity only reinforces the idea of group against group, and citizen against citizen. Lets focus on the positive attributes of those who are seeking of ce and why voters should support them. All of the candidates deserve to be treated with respect they have put themselves out there to be voted up or down based on their opinion of the issues. All of them have expressed a sincere desire to do whats best for Wakulla County whether as county commissioners, school superintendent or school board members. Remember: Early voting is Aug. 4 through Aug. 11, and the primary election is Aug. 14. Vote. William Snowden is editor of The Wakulla News. William Snowdenwsnowden@thewakullanews.net

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 5ASpecial to The NewsWakulla Medical Center and North Florida Medical Centers, Inc. Celebrates National Health Center Week 2012 the week of Aug. 5 through Aug. 11. Wakulla Medical Center is marking National Health Center Week to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of health centers as local solutions, both throughout the State of Florida and nationally throughout the United States. The theme this year is Celebrating Americas Health Centers: Powering Healthier Communities, to underscore how community health centers provide access to affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people. They are strong partnerships of people, governments and communities who work together to address the unique and diverse health conditions of the community, said Wakulla Medical Center Manager Brenda Health centers are run from the bottom up, by a patientmajority governing board that guides how limited resources can be effectively directed to meet its patients health care needs. One of the bright spots in Americas health care system, health centers provide a health care home to with open access and offers sliding fee scale program to all of those who live in Wakulla County. This model of care was rated as one of the most effective programs by former President George W. Bushs Office of Management and Budget. Posey pointed out that presidents from both parties and members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have long recognized the value of health centers and supported their expansion. With more health care homes in communities, we can reduce health care costs and unnecessary hospitalizations and visits to the hospital emergency rooms. Studies show that when illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and depression are not appropriately managed or prevented, they account for a significant portion of the skyrocketing costs for families and the entire health care system, said Posey. Community health centers, like Wakulla Medical Center, have been leaders in showing the value of this approach as an effective way to address more needs and improve health by providing access to quality healthcare at an affordable price. We serve every member of the community, Posey said. Those who have insurance such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield, CHP, Medicare, Medicaid, as well as offer a sliding fee scale. We serve the needs of our community under one roof, where every patient is treated as an individual, with dignity and respect, Posey said. This is what health care should be, and what we celebrate during National Health Center Week. For a list of all of North Florida Medical Center Inc. locations, please visit www. NFMC.org. We invite you to visit our center and experience what being a community health center is all about. We are here to serve our community. Please call us at any time for more information at Wakulla Medical Center, (850) 984-4735.

See you there!Author to hold booksigningSpecial to The NewsLocal author John Wade, whose book, In Sketch of a Prophecy was recently published, will hold a booksigning at Books-A-Million bookstore in Tallahassee on Saturday, Aug. 11, from noon to 3 p.m. In the book, Wade illustrates many of the features of the Tabernacle of Moses and Temple of Solomon, along with the historic Old Testament rituals that took place there. Coupled with meticulous citations of scripture and intricate artwork, he uses the biblical descriptions of these buildings to show what Christians can expect in heaven. These descriptions are blueprints of the transformed Christian heart and even patterns of heaven itself, our future home. Verifying the beauty and truth in the old gospel story, this book not only feeds the readers with the word of God it inspires hunger for more. While the good news is validated, many of the connections between Solomons Temple and the gospel of Jesus Christ are emphasized. Though the gospel itself remains unchanged, it is taught from a fresh perspective that is at once clear, simple and interesting. The book is so loaded with information, colorful descriptions, and intriguing thoughts that it is not properly read, until it is read, contemplated, and read again. In Wades life, he writes that all of my family from my grandparents on down have always cherished the loving and mighty God of the Bible. Through family discussions I was introduced to the Bible and learned all I could about the lord. I am glad to say that I do not remember any time in my life that conversations about Jesus and the salvation of God were very far from our lips. As a family, we talked about him virtually all of the time, and whenever we are together, we still do. OUT TO PASTORSo this is summer, is it?By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER It was just another day and I was indulging a carefree moment of complaining about the weather. I cant believe its so hot today, I muttered. I thought I was talking to myself but obviously, I had an audience. Have you ever said or did something not realizing somebody was watching you? Every time I am in a restaurant eating, I endeavor to remember there is an audience and try my very best not to spill the soup on my lap. Although, I must admit that that kind of lap dance always gets a vigorous round of applause from the audience. Dont ask me how I know. I thought in my own special way of thinking that I was alone only to nd out the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was within earshot of my remarks. I must say she is rather remarkable. Those earshot moments are quite extensive. I will not go as far as to say that she can read my mind, although I think she can, but she seems to know what I am thinking even before I go through the effort and labor of thinking. I do not know why I even spend the energy thinking on my own. Even when I do think up a thought of my own and go so far as to express it I am always challenged. The challenge is, do not think that way. The challenger is my wife. Life would be so much easier, not to mention less stressful, if I just would quit thinking my own thoughts. It is when I am thinking my own thoughts that I get into trouble. Getting back to my moment of complaining. I cant believe, I muttered, its so hot today. To which my wife said, Dont you know its summer? And dont you know that its supposed to be hot during the summer? I did know that but it did not make the heat any more bearable. If, my wife said rather sternly, you cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen. What the kitchen had to do with it being hot outside is way beyond my pay scale. There was a brief moment when I almost threw caution to the wind and asked my wife what she meant by that comment. Boy, am I glad I didnt. If I remember correctly, my wife said as she stared at me rather intently, a few months ago you were complaining about how cold it was. She was right. It was not but a few months ago, I was complaining that it was so cold outside that I just could not bear it. Youre going to have to make up your mind. That was a serious admonition from her. Either, she continued, its too hot or its too cold. Now make up your mind. I smiled demurely in her direction and nodded in the af rmative. Not wanting to further the conversation, I whispered very gently, Yes, dear. Later on in the evening, we were watching television. It was the local news and special report of the day had to do with the record heat wave across our country. Its been a long time, the weatherman said, since weve seen temperatures this high. Boy, is it hot out there. I glanced in her direction as covertly as possible and noticed she was staring at me, just daring me to say something. There is a time to say something and then sometimes something should not be said at all. I concealed my grin as much as possible knowing that someone was watching me. Under my breath I whispered, I cant believe its so hot today. After all, it is summer and it is supposed to be hot. I just believe that everybody has the right to complain about the weather. I also believe that some people have the right not to hear me complain about the weather. It is a well-noted mark of wisdom to know when to speak and when not to speak. Solomon in the Old Testament had it right when he said, Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding (Proverbs 17:28 KJV). So, this is summer, but you did not hear it from me.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolContinued from Page 1A The school board also picked up a portion of the increase in insurance costs, plus gave employees a $200 supplement intended to keep them pretty much held harmless from the increase, Miller said. The school board set the total millage at 8.486 mills, which is down slightly from last years millage of 8.5 mills. A mill represents $1 of tax for each $1,000 of taxable value. For a $100,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, school board taxes would amount to about $424 for the year. (That does not include county taxes or special assessments, or other taxing authorities such as the water management district.) Donna Sanford, the only other citizen besides Rudd to speak at the public hearing, praised the school board for reducing her taxes, but expressed concern about an increase in the districts insurance costs. She was directed to meet with the finance office about her questions. Rudd expressed disappointment in the State of Florida for reducing its share of education costs, commenting that Wakullas school budget was formerly made up of 55 percent revenues from the state it is now down to 39 percent, she said. Rudd said it is the states responsibility for pay for education, not local taxpayers. As for the pay increase that is part of this years budget, Superintendent Miller was enthusiastic that it was a sign of an improving economy noting as well reports that state revenue collections were up $400 million over projections so far this year. The school board budget includes a .25 mill discretionary levy the last year it can be imposed. While a small part of the budget it generates only $300,000 in local taxes it brings a more than dollar-fordollar match from the state of $315,000. The nal budget hearing is set for Monday, Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. School employees get raiseSpecial to The NewsThe Coastal Optimist Club Annual School Supply Drive is in full swing.

Here it is rst of August and before long well be talking about our fall shing, kids will be back in school shortly and FSU football is only about a month away. Where does time go? This has been a very good summer for fishing and our scallop season has been spectacular despite all the rain we had from Debby and all the rain we continue to get. Folks are getting their limit in a couple of hours or less and every time they go there seems to be more scallops than the time before. Michael Smith said he has been finding bigger scallops closer to shore and Glen and Alicia Peel said they have been nding them between Black Rock and Grey Mare in four feet of water. If you havent been you still have plenty of time and just go east of the St. Marks Lighthouse and look for all the boats. Just remember there are rocks in that area so you need to go slow. The 9th annual C-Quarters Kingfish Shootout is Aug. 4 and 5. The Captains meeting will be Friday night, Aug. 3, at C-Quarters on the Carrabelle River in Carrabelle. This tournament is held every year in honor of Jimmy Crowders daughter and pro ts go to the Leukemia Research Foundation. You can register at the Captains meeting and for more information you can contact Mary Lawhon at (850) 933-4166. Capt. Kent Taylor, David Vatter and Butch Davis shed the Ochlockonee River last week and had a very good day using the Gulp and some othere grubs. They came in with four nice trout, two reds and ve ounder. All were caught in the river. Capt. Luke Frazier shed with Jason Godwin and his brother Rick from California last week. They shed from the Ochlockonee to Piney Island and came in with two reds, several trout and a pompano. Pete Griggs and his grandson Kamian were shing near the Ochlockonee River State Park with shrimp on the bottom last week and were in for a big shock. Kamian was using a Zebco rod and reel and landed a big Gulf Sturgeon. The sh swam around the boat in circles and nally tired out and they were able to land, take pictures and release. This is a trip Kamian and his grandfather will never forget. Glen Peel, Jerry Alexander, Dan Tillman, Ginger Tillman and Shawn Beaty also had a fishing trip they will never forget: Glen went to the island of Kona in Hawaii to fish with his friend Chappy. Fishing aboard Chappys boat, the Kalele, Glen caught and released his rst marlin, which was estimated at about 300 pounds. On day two of the trip he caught a 110-pound Ahi (yellowfin tuna). On the third day shing, a 175-pound Ahi was caught. Glens wife Alicia missed this trip but she did say she took her daughter scalloping and they loaded up with the scallops. Jerry, Dan, Ginger and Shawn also had a fantastic trip but in a different part of the world. They went to Gol to, Cost Rica, on the South Pacific Coast and fished with Capt. Bobby McGuinness on his 37-foot boat, The Cazador. The captain tried to get them to go on his long trip on the rst day but they all decided they wanted o sh in closer. They landed a couple of sail- sh and lost a couple. On the second day he convinced them to do the 90-mile trip out to about 6,000 feet of water and he assured them they would have a great day. In fact, he said they wouldnt have time to drink any beer. Jerry said it was unreal. Within minutes of arriving and putting out the baits they were hooked up on a marlin. They caught and landed 15 marlin between 300 and 475 pounds and had two on at once several times. Capt. McGuinness was selected the Worlds Best Captain/Guide in 2006 and again in 2010 by International Game Fish Association for setting more IGFA certi ed world records those years than any other captain anywhere. Right now he holds over 200 world records. For the trip of a lifetime, Capt. McGuinness can be reached at 1 (800) 634-0012. I fished with Dr. Jim ONeil and Floyd Jaegers on Saturday and we didnt catch any marlin but did manage to catch three limits of trout, several Spanish, two flounder and about eight big bluefish. We caught everything on the Gulp and live shrimp. Jim said he had shed the week before over at Dog Island and shing from shore on the West end with a piece of cut bait caught a 36-inch red sh. Fishing is good and scalloping is good. What more could we ask for in August. Know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing!

UnderwaterWakullaBy Travis Kersting This past week, ve members of Flotilla 12 moved closer to becoming crew quali ed. One of the tasks a crewmember in training has to complete is a swim test. During this test, the trainee must be able to properly put on a life jacket when instructed, get into a pool, tread water for 5 to 10 minutes and swim unassisted for at least 30 feet. If you have never felt what it is like to be in the water with a life jacket on, it is a very different feeling. This is especially true for children. If you have never let your child play in the water with a life jacket, do you really want the rst time to be in a crisis situation? Prevention is key, and being familiar with the feeling of oating can make a difference in a crisis situation, should one arise. Following up on Rule #8, avoiding a collision, Rule #9 talks about navigating in narrow channels. This is very real for our area as the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers have many tight areas. As with driving, it is important to remain as close to the right side of the channel as possible when in narrow areas. Thankfully, this is not too dif cult for us, unless a large barge or heavy traf c are present. Boats smaller than 20 meters (roughly 65 feet) and sailboats shall not block or limit the progress of a boat that can only maneuver in a narrow channel. Boats that are shing shall not block the channel or limit the ability of other boats to move in the channel. This is one thing that is common in our area and that we try to educate people about. Not only can shing in the channel be hazardous for other boaters, it is a good way to get your line cut. Occasionally crab traps are dragged into the channel, so a close watch out is important to avoid this unnecessary snag in your day out on the water. Crossing the channel in front of another boat that cannot avoid you by moving outside of the channel is not permitted. In the event that a boat appears ready to cross in front of you, and you are not able to move around them, then ve short blasts of your horn are advised to warn the other boat. If intending to pass another boat in the channel when it is necessary for the other boat to move, slow down or take another action for you to safely pass, it is required that you use the proper sound signals described in rule 34. When reaching a part of a channel that has a sharp bend where you cannot see oncoming boats, it is advisable to slow your speed and use the appropriate sound signals (one prolonged blast of your horn) to alert others you are entering the bend. And lastly, unless there is no other option, anchoring in a channel is discouraged. As Sherrie says, Safe Boating is no Accident knowledge is power, be knowledgeable and be in command. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 11Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Not Like Home. In June I returned home to Minnesota for my grandfathers 90th birthday. I visited family and friends whom I had not seen in many years. The one thing I didnt do was go diving and thats only because I was not able to transport my dive equipment this time. Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, is a mecca for freshwater shing, boating, diving, camping and a variety of other water related activities. If you like being on the water, you would like Minnesota. That sounds very much like Florida, but there are distinct differences that make Florida a frustrating place to enjoy these same activities. Minnesota is frozen for much of the year but the water still draws entire communities for ice shing, snowmobiling and ice diving. Often times the frozen barrier between you and that monster walleye is over three feet thick. Somehow, Minnesotans tolerate the cold and frequently people travel there from the warmer states for ice shing. The limits and seasons for shing are mostly universal across the state of Minnesota, but a few lakes have their own regulations. The season to harvest sh depends on their spawning cycles and the ice. Its common and legal to see people using the practice of catch and release all year (especially between seasons) in Minnesota. In Florida there are different seasons for different sh and then there are also regulations for state versus federal waters. For someone who is new to Florida this can be most confusing. Often times I hear that the best thing to do is check the regulations online before you go out because rules change so often. In Minnesota, if I want to go diving, I can drive up to any body of water and do so as long as the water is publicly accessible or the land owner grants permission. Most land owners actually really appreciate us divers. We can tell them whats in their pond or pick up trash or help remove that rusty Chevrolet which was dumped in there in 1971. All water is public in Minnesota. If I can y in and land on a lake even if all the land is surrounded by private land owners, I still have a right to sh/swim/etc there. My favorite dive site was ve minutes from my house and exceeded 200 feet deep, but it was totally open and unrestricted to divers, swimmers and sherman alike. Not one of the hundreds of places I dove in Minnesota did I have to pay a fee for access to the water. I have also never been asked for a certi cation card when diving in a state park or on private land. The dive sites in Minnesota are not without hazards either. The winter cold or entanglement hazards or extreme depths could all become fatal to divers and yet we are all allowed to dive there and allowed to use our own judgment and to dive within our own limits. Here in Florida I have to get special permission to dive almost anywhere inland. The parks all have different fees, operating hours, and rules for divers and many dont allow diving at all. Some want to see certi cation cards and some want $25 per day for divers to use the park but $4 for swimmers. Some allow cave diving only and some allow open water diving too. Some allow diver propulsion vehicles and some dont. Some require a certi cation for trimix (an expensive breathing gas mixture) even if the cave passage is well within the shallow air recreational limits. In Florida divers are frequently seen trying to improve sites by adding steps to prevent erosion or picking up trash, yet we are still feared or disliked by much of the rest of the community. I think Minnesota has been successful with its open access to anyone who wants to use the water. Why does Florida feel like the complete opposite? Florida has an ever growing population of divers who all want to improve these places for EVERYONE yet we are treated with misunderstanding and segregation, why? Coming from a place that embraces divers, I feel like an outcast here. Reported activity during the week of July 13-19 in the Northwest Region. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: FWC of cers from Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Bay, Gulf, and Franklin Counties worked together to provide proactive high visibility patrols targeting unsafe and unlawful behavior on the waterways during the annual Pensacola Blue Angels Air Show. The of cers worked in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard-Station Pensacola and the Escambia and Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Of- ces to ensure a safe event. FWC of cers issued several boating citations, warnings, and made three arrests for boating under the influence (BUI). The Special Operations Group (SOG) team assigned to patrol the Little Sabine sandbar area stopped several ghts among intoxicated attendees and responded to four medical emergencies. Also, during the Blue Angels Air Show, SOG team members located a backpack containing two IDs and several other items, including a bag of cannabis and rolling papers. Later that evening, Lt. Dan Hahr contacted the owner of the bag and arranged to meet with him. When they met, the owner was quite happy to get his bag back until Lt. Hahr identified himself and asked about the cannabis. The man admitted to smoking cannabis earlier and then losing the backpack. The man was issued a notice to appear for possession of not more than 20 grams of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia. SANTA ROSA COUNTY: FWC of cers assigned to Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties in conjunction with the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Of ce conducted a search and rescue operation on the upper Blackwater River downstream from Bryant Bridge. The of cers received information through Dispatch that a 16-year-old male disappeared while swimming in the river. Approximately two hours into the search, two kayakers located the juvenile halfway between Bryant Bridge and the Blackwater State Park. The of cers picked up the juvenile and returned him to his parents. LIBERTY COUNTY: Of- cer Ben Johnson cited two men for transporting wild hogs alive from an area. This occurred in the Blue Creek area. GULF COUNTY: On the last day of red snapper season, Officers Hal and Matt Webb conducted a resource inspection on a vessel returning to Mexico Beach. The operator stated he was in a hurry to pick up another charter. The operator then said he was on a recreational trip. After the inspection was completed, the vessel was found to be over the limit of red snapper. License checks revealed several passengers had no recreational shing licenses. Cit ations were issued for the violations.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1AHe worked his way up the ladder and became the assistant park manager at Cape Florida State Park in Miami. Then became the park manager at St. George Island State Park and then Wekiwa Springs State Park. He then decided to go into the administrative side of the park system and became the assistant bureau chief for district 5 in Hobe Sound and then district bureau chief for district 3 in Apopka and eventually worked for the main of ce in Tallahassee as bureau chief of operational services. He then decided it was time to go back out into the eld and became the park manager at Fort Clinch State Park in Fernandina Beach. I feel like I can contribute the most at the park management level, Scalco says. I see the fruits of my labor. He went through the normal promotional process, but says he is more comfortable dealing with day-to-day operations. Im a park ranger at heart, he says. He wanted to get back in touch with what brought him into the park service, being out in the eld and taking in all the natural and cultural resources he enjoys. Scalco wants people to know that Wakulla Springs State Park and lodge are open for business. Although Tropical Storm Debby left them without power for three days and closed the swimming area, he says since then, the park has been very busy. Numbers are up 17 percent from last year. As far as any changes to the park, Scalco says he has no intention of making any changes, just improving on what currently exists. Id like to continue the traditional activities here, he says. As the demographics change, he wants to make sure the park is able to serve that need, but also maintain the special quality and uniqueness of the park. He also wants to expand the educational opportunities at the park and reach out to populations that may not be familiar with it, as well as invite those people who havent been back in a while to visit and bring a friend. Dont keep it a secret, Scalco says. When asked whether DEP had made any decision about whether or not to allow cave diving at Wakulla Springs, Scalco says no decision has been made. They are still reviewing and interpreting the feedback they received from public meetings and meetings with other stakeholders.

But in this case, it is all in good-natured fun. At a gathering on Sunday, Aug. 5. in Apalachicola, 12 participants in the 2012 RiverTrek will formally kick off their drives to raise funds for the Apalachicola Riverkeeper, a non-profit organization that advocates for river protection. In mid-October, the RiverTrek group plans to kayak 107 miles over ve days on the Apalachicola River from the Jim Wooddruff Dam in Chattahoochee to Apalachicolas Battery Park. Along the way, through blogs and media interviews, they hope to raise awareness about the plight of this unique river system especially how it is being starved for water by upriver interests. They also seek to raise at least $10,000 for the Apalachicola Riverkeeper. Thats where the friendly competition comes in. Participant and co-organizer Georgia Ackerman, co-owner of the Wilderness Way, jumpstarted the fundraising by promising her regular customers a free kayak rental to anyone who sponsored her for $35 or more, prompting cries of shameless hucksterism from other participants. In response, RiverTrek participant and Leon County commissioner Bryan Desloge offered in jest free building permits to people who sponsored him. Fearing theyll be left in the wake by Ackerman and Desloge, co-organizer Doug Alderson, bike shop manager Josh Bolick and several others portrayed themselves as being in a David versus Goliath type struggle to keep up. I need to show that a minnow can swim with sharks, Alderson pleaded to his would-be sponsors. The central goal of the participants is a serious one, however. Whether she is forging through the mountains, roaming through the atlands or dancing to the sea, the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint has remained constant, says geologist and participant Alex Reed. She has always given so graciously and we have always taken from her so freely. It is time that we give something back. Generations to come need to know her as we have.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 13AContinued from Page 1A The passage of the RESTORE Act has the potential to change Floridas panhandle and help provide the much needed improvements that our local governments havent been able to support, Brock said. These improvements will help rebuild our suffering local economy. When the process began, the RESTORE Act was not expected to pass, said Brock, who was involved in the process and represented Wakulla County in discussions. The hard work of a lot of people and with the support from Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Steve Sutherland, it did pass, he said. The oil rig exploded in the Gulf on April 20, 2010, and killed 11 people. It was nally capped on July 15, 2010, after leaking nearly $4 million barrels into the Gulf. Fines are estimated between $5 billion and $20 billion. The nal amount will depend on how much negligence the responsible parties either agree to or as determined by a federal judge. The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council will receive the majority of the penalties, 60 percent, which will be divided into two parts. Half will go to implement the councils comprehensive federal environmental plan, which consists of the secretaries of Interior, Army, Commerce, EPA, Agriculture and Coast Guard; ve state members, which will either be the governor or their designee; and advisory committees, according to the Florida Association of Counties. The other half of the 60 percent will be given out to the ve states, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, based on oil spill impact. For this 30 percent, a consortium of representatives from each county affected will be created to come up with the allocation formula. Another 35 percent of funds will be given to the five Gulf States in equal shares for ecological and economic restoration. Florida could receive at least $1.12 billion, if the maximum ne is imposed of $20 billion. For Florida speci cally, 75 percent will go to the eight counties that were listed as affected, which includes Wakulla County. The other 25 percent will go to non-disproportionately impacted counties, according to FAC. But the process for deciding how the funds will be distributed is still being worked out, Brock said. Eligible use of funds include restoration and protection of natural resources, mitigation of natural resources, implementation of marine, coastal or conservation management plan, workforce development and job creation, state parks, infrastructure projects benefitting the economy or ecological resources, coastal ood protection, planning assistance, administrative costs, promotion of tourism and promotion of seafood consumption. The last 5 percent will be dedicated to the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration and Science, Observation, Monitoring and Technology Program administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and centers of excellence. The county commission will hold a workshop on the RESTORE Act in August. A date will be set at the Aug. 6 commission meeting. Wakulla could get up to $40M from oil spill nesSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Office detectives continue to investigate a possible fraud that occurred on Friday and Saturday, July 20 and July 21 at the Moose Lodge in Panacea, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum. A woman, Susan Hayden Daniels, 54, of Jupiter, met with Panacea shermen claiming she was representing a Texas law rm handling Deepwater Horizon claims. During the course of the two meetings, Daniels ordered 75 meals from Poseys Steam Room. Daniels provided a credit card to pay for the meals but her card only partially covered the cost. WCSO investigators discussed the outstanding bill with Daniels by telephone and she refused to return to Wakulla County to address the issue. As a result, Daniels has an active warrant for defrauding an innkeeper. WCSO investigators have been in contact with representatives of the Florida Attorney Generals of ce and Florida Senator Bill Nelsons of ce in an effort to determine if any illegal activity has occurred related to the claims process or personal information received from Panacea area commercial shermen. State aquaculture of cials report that any information regarding dangers of catching or eating Florida seafood is false. Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) of cials continue to monitor water quality and report that the water and seafood are not tainted in any way. The public is strongly encouraged to carefully verify anyone claiming to represent their interests in litigation over the Deepwater Horizon claims process which is now based at U.S. District Court in New Orleans. Avoid giving out personal information at any time. An of cial site for fraud complaints related to Deepwater Horizon is available to anyone who thinks they may be a victim. The telephone number is: 877-623-3423. The line is active and they are accepting calls. A web site is also available for citizens to visit: www.deepwaterhorizoneconomicsettlement.com/fraud.php. The overall investigation is ongoing and efforts are underway to bring Daniels back to Wakulla County to face charges in Crawfordville.

By JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 25 Florida House elections are a numbers game. Republicans will control the House after November that much is clear. But will Democrats pick up enough seats and procedural strength to slow the GOPs agenda? The once-a-decade redistricting process has helped create contested races across the state. In some districts, those races will play out in the Aug. 14 primary elections, while others will involve Republicans and Democrats battling into November. Here are 10 House races that bear watching this year: DISTRICT 7: Rural North Florida voters for generations elected conservative Democrats to the Legislature. But the GOP has made inroads in recent elections and, doubtless, would like to capture the District 7 seat, which effectively became open when Democrat Leonard Bembry decided to run for Congress. The district is massive, stretching from Gulf County to Madison County, and has drawn four Republican candidates and three Democrats. Monticello Republican Halsey Beshears had raised the most money, $152,689, as of July 6, but he and some of the other candidates also have poured their own money into the race most notably, Port St. Joe Republican Jamey Westbrook has spent $120,000 on his campaign, while Perry Republican Don Curtis has loaned his campaign $100,000. Other candidates in the race include Republican Mike Williams of Madison and Democrats Thomas Dickens of Crawfordville, Robert Hill of Bristol and A.J. Smith of East Point. DISTRICT 17: As he seeks a third term, Rep. Ronald Doc Renuart of Ponte Vedra Beach faces two Republican primary opponents and a substantially redrawn district. DISTRICT 21: Like Renuart, Republican Rep. Keith Perry of Gainesville will have to seek votes in a redrawn district that differs dramatically from where he rst got elected in 2010. The new district includes western Alachua County and all of Gilchrist and Dixie counties, while Perrys old district stretched from Alachua into Levy and Marion counties. DISTRICT 27: Spreading across the southern half of Volusia County, District 27 could be a sleeper race to watch in November. DISTRICT 30: Rep. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, has taken high-pro le stances since getting elected in 2008, including being an outspoken critic of the federal health overhaul and trying to shut down Internet cafes. But he could be in for a slugfest in November, as Maitland Democrat Karen Castor Dentel tries to unseat him in the largely suburban Orlando district. DISTRICT 34: Whether serving in the Legislature or on the state Public Service Commission, outspoken Nancy Argenziano always has kept things interesting. Now, she is trying to return to the House as an independent candidate and is challenging Republican incumbent Jimmie Smith who also has shown he can make things interesting. DISTRICT 68: The state Democratic Party and labor groups have gotten behind St. Petersburg attorney Dwight Dudley as they eye an open seat in Pinellas County.Some House races to watch this year

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 15ASpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Office won first place in the Florida Law Enforcement Challenge. The competition is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The awards program was held at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando in mid-July. Wakulla County won in a category that includes 25 to 40 road patrol of cers on the streets and highways which creates a competition between agencies of similar size. The WCSO received an eagle trophy, 15,000 Department of Transportation points which can be converted into dollars for the purchase of equipment and a key for an opportunity to win a 2012 Dodge Charger. Unfortunately, the WCSO key did not start the Charger which was awarded to another agency. But the agency has used the points from past contests to purchase portable breath test units for DUI stops, radar equipment and laser mapping equipment for accident reconstruction. The purpose of the competition is to encourage law enforcement agencies to use education and traf c enforcement to make roads safer for motorists and cut down on traf c crashes. The competition judged agencies not only by the number of crashes but by the number of DUI enforcement waves which resulted in a reduction of the number of DUI cases; the Click It Or Ticket seatbelt campaign and motorcycle crashes. The state and federal government looked at crash statistics from 2009, 2010 and 2011 and discovered that Wakulla County motorcycle crashes experienced a reduction from 31 in 2010 to four in 2011. WCSO deputies talked to motorcycle clubs about educating younger members about motorcycle safety and the dangers of operating a motorcycle while intoxicated. Patrols also targeted areas where motorcycles are known to travel. U.S. Highway 98 is a popular travel area for motorcycle riders traveling from the western Panhandle to points east and vice versa. Many of these motorcycle operators are from outside of Wakulla County. The sheriffs of ce has conducted seat belt campaigns at Wakulla High School where School Resource Officers stand by the student parking lot exit as students leave for the day. The students are not allowed to leave campus until they buckle their seat belts. The dangers of drinking and driving are also driven home to students with the use of a display vehicle that is placed at the school after being involved in a drunken driving incident. Wakulla County competed for the award with a maximum of ve road patrol deputies working at one time with as many as 605 square miles to potentially patrol and respond to calls. The traf c enforcement is completed on top of the regular dispatch calls that may call a road patrol deputy off the road to respond to a resident at their home. This years rst place nish in the Law Enforcement Challenge followed a third place nish in the DUI Challenge last year. Statistically, the WCSO has seen a decline in the number of crashes, DUIs and other category items. However, seat belt counts taken by the WCSO at intersections have determined that 81 to 82 percent of motorists are using seat belts. The WCSO would like to see the statistic higher where nearly all motorists wear their seat belts. I am very pleased that the WCSO was able to return from Orlando with a first place award, said Sheriff Donnie Crum. Our number one priority on the roads is the safety of our citizens and we will continue to do whatever it takes to make Wakulla County roads safe. During the summer months the WCSO will be able to fund additional patrols to address drunk drivers and aggressive drivers through a $30,000 Department of Transportation grant. The grant funding will allow deputies to be paid for overtime that the general revenue budget at the sheriffs of ce cant address. By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netDavid King, the Panacea tattoo artist charged with grand theft and animal cruelty for shooting a neighbors Vietnamese pot-bellied pig last year, was found not guilty by a jury last week after a daylong trial. Kings defense was that he shot the pig to protect his young son, who had been mauled by a dog only a couple of weeks earlier. Defense attorney Steven Glazer, who represented King, said after the trial on Wednesday, July 25, that the acquittal was was a vindication for his client, whose case had received national attention. A search of Kings tattoo shop uncovered several Ziploc bags of pork in the freezer from the butchered pig. Naomi Huff, owner of the pig, said the animal, named Spam, was 12 or 13 years old and was a family pet that did tricks for candy. She said she asked King for the animals body back to bury it with other pets, but he told her he didnt have it. She asked for the head, and received the same answer. Asked by Assistant State Attorney John Wilson why she wanted the head, Huff said: I didnt want him claiming he killed some big, ferocious animal when he killed some little pet. King said he was in his shop preparing to do a tattoo as his 3-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter were in the yard with a friend. He testi ed that his wife came into the shop and told him to grab his gun, that a hog was in the yard and heading for the boy. He got his .32-caliber derringer and stepped outside the shop, pulled his son behind him and shot the pig twice, killing it. He had recently moved to the area from Wisconsin and had never seen a wild hog. He did see the pigs tusks, which were reportedly three to ve inches long, as it moved toward his son. Testimony indicated that Kings son had been mauled two weeks earlier by a German shepherdHusky mix that bit the childs face and required surgery. The jury was out for almost an hour before returning a not guilty verdict against King. The truth came out that my client was protecting his son, Glazer said after the jurys verdict. King also had faced charges that he was dealing drugs from his tattoo shop but was found not guilty in a jury trial a couple of months ago. In that trial, an undercover informant went into the shop to make a drug buy. Glazer argued at the trial that the drug buy was hinky the informant brought his girlfriend with him, unknown to the cops who were overseeing the operation. Plus, while the informant and other peoples voices are on the tape recording the informant was wired Kings voice is not. In his testimony, the informant indicated that another shop worker told King about him wanting to buy drugs and King just nodded and allegedly fetched the drugs for him without saying a word. The jury returned a not guilty verdict on those charges. In another trial last week: Nathan Deanda was found guilty of possession of methamphetamine and possession with intent to sell, but was found not guilty of traf cking in meth. Deanda went to trial on Thursday, July 26, and was represented by Tallahassee attorney John Eagen. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath Bueno. According to testimony at the trial, Deanda was picked up by Paul Porretto in his van at the Greyhound bus station in Tallahassee for a ride to south Florida. The men drove to Wakulla County and allegedly sold a half-ounce of crystal meth to a man at a trucking company for $1,100. At some point, though, Porretto allegedly became irritated at Deanda, who was supposed to be his lookout but was talking on his cell phone. Porretto beat up Deanda, even allegedly red a shot at him. Deanda called 911 and reported that Porretto had a rolling meth lab in the van. Detectives found materials for making meth, including some being cooked, and charged both men were traf cking. Porretto still faces charges. He was to have gone to trial several months ago, but questions about his competency to proceed have been raised. As for Deanda, he will be sentenced by Circuit Judge Charles Dodson, who presided over the trial, at a date to be set later. 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!!!

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy LES HARRISONWakulla Extension DirectorThey just appear, creating a landscape come alive with hopping bits and pieces. Much like Moses calling down Gods second pestilence on Pharaoh, Wakulla County is experiencing its own latter day plague-oftoads. To some it is a most nightmarish experience as the tiny creatures animate normally stationary landmarks familiar to all. Sometimes, with a gust of wind, the amphibians will shower down from trees on unsuspecting passersby. The hatch-out of Eastern Spadefoot Toads is a byproduct of Tropical Story Debby. The diminutive creatures are recently metamorphosed toads that can easily sit on a dime in their juvenile phase with room to spare. The torrential rainfall from Tropical Storm Debby prompted the adults to seek bodies of water to lay their eggs. Females can lay up to 2,500 eggs at once, with the eggs hatching tadpoles after a few days. Some fishless ponds have been known to spawn 1 million tadpoles. Five weeks after the storm, the tadpoles are now making themselves known in a big way with a massive transformation into toads. Anyone near a pool, puddle or body of fresh water is likely to encounter these toads. The toad hordes should be gone in a week or so as they disperse from the temporary pools as they search for food, including any unlucky mosquitoes. They can grow to three inches in length if they reach maturity. The plentiful toad supply also serves as food for birds and animals. When the rains slack off and the enviaronment dries the toads will burrow into the top soil and patiently wait for next big rain event to start the cycle over again. This species is very long lived and populations often go for many years without successful rain induced reproductive events.

The effects are harmful and could be long-term not just for the children but for the state, advocates say. The annual Kids Count report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation ranks Florida 44th in the economic well-being of its children, 38th in their health outcomes and 35th in their educational performance. The state ranks 38th overall. The number of Florida children living in poverty is up 28 percent from 2005 to 2010, the last year for which data were included in the study. That measurement considers such factors as whether the parents have secure employment or the ability to cover their housing costs. Ted Granger, president of the United Way of Florida, said he wasnt surprised by the ranking given the need local agencies are seeing. Economic instability is having a huge and dramatic effect on children, Granger said. The largest group of new homeless are single parents with children. These children, whether or not homeless or in poverty, are part of a group that statistically we know have worse health care outcomes [and] lack the educational opportunities to realize their full potential. In 2010, 23 percent of Florida children were living in poverty. The parents of 34 percent lacked secure employment, up from 28 percent in 2008. Nearly half of Florida households 49 percent saw their housing costs grow to 30 percent or more, up from 42 percent in 2005. The number of teens who were neither in school nor working was 10 percent, the same as in 2008. In all these categories, Floridas stats were worse than the national average. I think its a ticking time bomb, said Roy Miller, president of the Childrens Campaign in Florida. Children are exposed now in much larger numbers to poverty and all of its ill effects. So whats going to happen to those children ve years, 10 years, [or] 15 years down the road? We dont know. Susan Weitzel, Florida Kids Count director, said the states children are growing up with risk factors that predict they will not succeed in Floridas future economy. When children are going to school hungry and do not know if they have a place to sleep at night, how can they be successful in the classroom? she asked in a statement about the report. David Wilkins, secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families, agreed that his agency is seeing poor children at risk for future dif culties. When you see children in poverty over time, you may see them in other parts of the system, such as [the Department of Juvenile Justice] system or child welfare system, he said. Thats what we always have to be careful about and watch. The other thing thats in our state that a lot of other states arent facing to anywhere the same level is the substance abuse and prescription drug problem, Wilkins added. Thats also crossing across that same demographic. But while Wilkins said he wasnt surprised by the ndings, he pointed out that the reports 2010 economic data dont include Gov. Rick Scotts job-creating efforts. Scott was inaugurated in January 2011. The issue of poverty in the state is driven almost entirely by the economic situation of jobs and the housing market, Wilkins said. Thats why the citizens elected this governorIn the past year, weve reduced unemployment in Florida another two percentage points. So I think were heading in the right direction. And the Kids Count report did have some good news for Florida. The number of uninsured children has dropped slightly, to half a million. Students are doing a bit better in reading and math, although still below the national average. According to the Kids Count ndings, while Florida ranked 44th among the states in terms of economic well-being, it was 38th overall, with better outcomes in four other areas. The state ranked 35th in education. The number of Florida children not attending preschool in 2008-2010 was 51 percent, compared to 52 percent in 2005-2007. The number of high school students not graduating on time was 31 percent in 2008-2009, an improvement from 36 percent in 2005-2006. In two categories with 2011 data, 65 percent of fourth graders were not pro cient in reading, compared to 70 percent in 2005, and 72 percent of eighth graders were not pro cient in math, a slight improvement from 74 percent in 2005. In childrens health, Florida ranked 38th. In 2010, I3 percent of Florida kids lacked health insurance, compared to 18 percent in 2008 although still below the national average of 8 percent. In 2009, child and teen deaths slowed to 29 per 100,000, down from 37 percent in 2005. The numbers of teens abusing alcohol and drugs dropped from 8 percent in 2005-2006 to 7 percent in 2008-2009. The number of low birth-weight babies stayed at 8.7 percent over the same period, compared to the national average of 8.2 percent. Florida ranked 35th in the family and community category, with 39 percent of children living in singleparent families in 2010 up from 36 percent in 2005. Between 2000 and 2010, the number of children living in high-poverty neighborhoods grew from 7 to 8 percent. Teen births per 1,000 dropped from 42 in 2005 to 39 in 2009. Between 2005 and 2010, the number of children in families where the head of household lacked a high school diploma dropped from 15 to 14 percent. For childrens advocate Miller, the improvements are welcome but frustrating, since they show where the state has invested money successfully. And I think thats the frustration of the child advocacy community, he said. Why dont we make the investments in all the areas that need help, so that we see investments across the board?...Were seeing investments save money and improve lives. Why arent we making better choices? But the United Ways Granger said the Legislature is between a rock and a hard place when it comes to investing in children. Weve underfunded these services for decades probably forever, he said. Were in a situation where weve got these crises, and we have to fund the crises. So its really a dif cult balance [lawmakers] have to determine, Do we fund the crisis of the moment, or do we fund something thats going to give us results in ve, six, 15, 20 years? And unfortunately, the crises are such that they compel many of us to say weve got to fund the crisis. The Kids Count Data Book is available at http:// datacenter.kidscount.org.

CARRSpecial to The NewsThe double bass had to have a new crush-proof case. There were concerns about whether U.S. Customs Service would consider the rosewood in some of the instruments an illegal importation on the return trip. Overall, preparations for the first European tours of two regional bands that began at the beginning of the year are playing out in Ireland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland this month. Perhaps the most dif cult and heart-wrenching aspect of these preparations was Tropical Storm Debby. Rick Ott and Nell McCall, Sopchoppy recording studio producers and musicians with From the Heart music hour, lost everything when their house lled with water. A further irony to their predicament was that they were helping out another artists husbands ght with leukemia at a fundraiser in Tallahassee when the storm started. By Monday, all was lost. Would they even be able to leave for Ireland with The Currys and Mimi Hearn? They worked hard replacing interior doors, furnishing their uninsured property with donations, and above all, continuing preparations for their once-in-a-lifetime tour and live lm production of Ireland. While the From the Heart Music Hour tour enthralls Ireland and even appears at the famed Rose of Tralee Festival, the Coon Bottom Creek Band have packed up all their gear and are now on the continent of Europe. Mischa and Maria Steurer, Austrian natives who moved to Wakulla County 10 years ago, began their tour in Munich, continue to Gundel ngen and then can be heard world-wide on the internet on Aug. 8 (http:// stream.freefm.de/listen. pls) before concerts in Switzerland and Austria. For Chelsea Kessler, the youngest rising star of the group, the trip is somewhat scary but really exciting. I dont speak a word of German, she said during a nal rehearsal break at her mothers store, Posh Java in Sopchoppy. The Steurers have taken her under their wings and Europeans will be in for a delightful treat as the band plays a mixture of bluegrass, newgrass, country music and rock n roll. It is feel good music, said Mischa, who is the groups musical director and plays the mandolin. His wife, the enthusiastic upright bass player, is the driving force behind guitarist Red Barnes and banjoist Skip Johns. For both of the touring groups, family participation is key to a successful adventure. But so is the internet. Without it, both Rick Ott and Mischa Steurer said they would not have been able to connect so quickly with venues. We have two vans rented at Shannon, Ireland, and The Currys parents Tom and Betty will drive and help with our gear, Ott said. The Currys, from Port St. Joe, are Jimmy, Tommy and Galen (thecurrysmusic.com), and they will be joined by one-time Wakulla County resident Mimi Hearn (of Mimi Hearn and the Hounddogs fame). Two camera people are also along for the Irish trip, recording segments for a ve-segment From the Heart Music Hour TV show later this year. The musical ambassadors, while slightly different in styles, will have an opportunity to talk and sing about the pines, the red-tailed hawks, the ups and downs of life as expressed by a myriad of American songwriters. They will also be good promoters of our region, showing off talents Wakulla residents have enjoyed at many festivals throughout the years.

By AMY GEIGERChamber PresidentDear Chamber Members, Last month we held the inaugural event for a new group called Focus Wakulla aimed at young professionals in Wakulla County. Our membership committee chair, Tara Kieser, along with Courtney Peacock and Jessica Revell, lead a group of dedicated individuals to bring this event to fruition. More than 100 professionals came out to join in on the excitement and learn more about the goals that will be the cornerstone of this group. For those of you who may have missed the introduction in an earlier newsletter, FOCUS is an acronym that represents the groups goals: F Foster and support economic development. O Optimize networking opportunities. C Create and cultivate future leaders. U Understanding and awareness of government processes. S Strengthen and enrich our community. Focus Wakulla will hold quarterly events that will touch one of these five goals. Ideas for this group include inviting guest speakers who will educate the group on how government works in Wakulla County, holding seminars on how to network and meet others to help you grow your business, having small intimate discussions on the importance of local businesses and supporting them. We will encourage Focus members to participate in regular Chamber events as well. The inaugural event was held at Poseys Dockside Caf in Panacea on June 29. It was a huge success and would not have been possible without the following businesses and organizations that helped defer the cost of the event: Sponsors included The Wakulla News, Capital City Bank, Southern Flooring, Ameris Bank, Best Western Plus, Rogers Gunter Vaughn Insurance Inc., Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend, Lu Lus Cups & Cakes, Tallahassee Technology Group, Poseys Dockside Caf, Auto Trim Design and Signs, and Rock Landing Marina.

We support one anothers grant applications through letters of support or match when needed and look for ways to leverage resources toward a greater good. Members include Disc Village, many counselors, social workers, and therapists as members, NAMI Wakulla, the Department of Health, the Sheriffs Of ce, the school district, Refuge House, Fearless Youth led by the Florida National Guard, the Wakulla County Extension Of ce and4-H, Hospice, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, faith leaders, the Wakulla County Juvenile Justice Council, Capital Area Community Action Agency, business leaders, Apalachee Center for Community Mental Health, Board of County Commissioners, the Florida Department of Children and Families, 211 Big Bend, Capital City Youth Services, and Capital Area Healthy Start and others are essential coalition members and players in building and sustaining a healthy Wakulla. What should the community/ customer expect when they contact your organization? Expect to be overwhelmed by the vast resources at work in Wakulla County. Opportunities to serve are abundant. We do not have a storefront. The Coalition meets monthly on the rst Wednesday of every month at the Wakulla County Public Library, 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Hunger Team, Operation Santa Team, HAWC and other key committee meet as needed throughout the year. The days ahead will focus on an event in late September intended to build food stock and fund reserves for Thanksgiving and Operation Santa. We need YOU! Bring lunch to enjoy during the meeting on Aug. 5, and bring nonperishable food items to the meeting as your entry ticket. This food makes way to the seven churches who have food pantries. If you cant make the full Coalition meeting on Aug. 5, but want to help with food and fund drive events, call 926 3526 to learn the dates of these meetings. How long have you been a Chamber member? On and off for 10 years. Why did you join the Chamber? The business community is one of the most essential sectors in any community. Additional comments: The Coalition is involved in matters of food insecurity (hunger), Operation Santa (a hands up for growing numbers of working poor and those who have no means at all), and most recently Tropical Storm Debby relief efforts. The individuals and families have a long road ahead of them. Several of those families are Coalition leaders and members who were hit hard. The home of WCSO Lt. Bruce Ashley, the Coalitions President, and his wife Nina was lost to ooding. Another member, Lisa Russell, lost her home to ooding as did others. And yet Bruce Ashley continued his work throughout the community helping others even as he was mucking out his household. Bruce and Emergency Management Director Scott Nelson both donated to the Flood Fund which has helped several with unmet needs to date. The most profound reality out of the flooding was a genuine and aggressive approach to getting things done. A crisis takes its toll but, through genuine service, true leaders emerge and so many many many true leaders live work and play in Wakulla even as they volunteer in service to make Wakulla even better.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 7BBy JO ANN PALMERKeep Wakulla County Beautiful On Saturday, July 21, friends of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful came together for several hours in Sopchoppy removing 2,360 pounds of debris left behind from Tropical Storm Debby. KWCB had been asked to coordinate a cleanup of the Sopchoppy River and the area of Indian Summer, where the flood waters had reached over 36 feet, washing items, including clothes and appliances, into the woods. The scattered debris was trapped where it was oating when the water receded, leaving items such as a chair, freezer, canoe, jacket and lots of paperwork hanging almost out of reach. Every trip passing by the overwhelming amount of trash was a constant reminder of the destruction to the residents already reeling from dealing with the damage to their homes. Despite the heat, humidity, merciless mosquitoes and snakes, Commissioners Mike Stewart and Alan Brock, candidates John Shuff, Ralph Thomas and Richard Harden, KWCB friends, Shelley Swenson, Judith Harriss, Bethany Thomas, Scott, Karla, Andrew and Ellie Nelson, Candace Clemons, Lona Wilene Matherne, and Woody Palmer, KWCB Board members Nancy Paul, Durene Gilbert, Ray Cade, Lori Gilbertson and Jo Ann Palmer. Bruce Ashley, president of the KWCB Board, who lost his home to Debby, and who has cleaning yet to do, dedicated his morning to helping remove the unsightly debris. At the end of the morning, the roll-off dumpster, generously donated by Marpan Recycling of Tallahassee, was lled to capacity with broken furniture, cans of paint, tires, countless garbage bags of plastic, paper and miscellaneous debris, along with plastic buckets, parts of a beehive, sheetrock, ice chests, an old tarp and broken pieces of wood, just to name some of the items recovered from the dense woods. Stewart. who coordinates the NJROTC for Wakulla Highs Adopt-A-Road program throughout the school year, knows the litter problem from the high school down Rehwinkle, but he was astonished to see how much had been caused by this storm. Among the most unusual items were the chair hanging in the tree, tools and the contents of someones refrigerator oating in the creek. It looked like someones refrigerator exploded into the creek, there were eggs and other rotting items, said Shuff. I gured all that plastic did not need to make its way to the river. While these volunteers were on the ground, Cynthia Paulson of Palmetto Expeditions, Brenda Pell, Somer, Ethan and Evan Strickland, Capt. James Hodges of St. Marks Charters and his family, Emily, Cara and Kristie Hodges, an outstanding group of Green Guide volunteers were in boats and canoes on the river collecting an assortment of items that had oated both north and south of the city park. Wakulla County Administrator David Edwards and his wife Lara, along with their son, recovered an old rusty propane gas tank that they oated back to the boat landing. Ralph Thomas, in the spirit of recycling, hopes to make a grill out of it. Paul and Tina Johnson paddled in their canoe and recovered debris along the shoreline. Other items the river runners collected were two blue plastic barrels filled with garbage, furniture cushions, coolers and lots of plastic buckets. They also collected a bench and motorcycle helmet. Scott Nelson, a Sopchoppy resident himself, told me later that some of the residents in the community expressed their appreciation for the help and wanted to get involved with Keep Wakulla County Beautiful now that they have learned what we are about. Those are the comments that mean a lot to us. We work to help maintain the beauty of this community, which extends to lending a hand to all residents. KWCB holds a monthly Green Drinks on the fourth Tuesday of each month. This program is dedicated to bringing the community important information about supporting the sustainability of your life and surrounds. KWCB also hosts programs about interesting topics on local businesses and happenings in our area. On Aug. 28, the program will be an appreciation event for our Adopt-A-Road adoptees. These events are free and open to the public and are held at 6:30 p.m. at Wildwood Resorts 19th Hole. We also meet as a board on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Wildwood. If you are interested in getting involved, some upcoming events include the annual Coastal Cleanup on Sept. 15, Hazardous Waste Day on Oct. 20 and National Forest Cleanup on Nov. 17. This Saturday, Aug. 4, we are having a cleanup for Bruce and Nina Ashley beginning at 9 a.m. Bruce has given so much to this community and were going to give back to him. Contact me at (850) 745-7111 or by email at helpkwcb@gmail. com if you can join us. KWCB will supply all the equipment. Thanks to everyone who got involved with the Sopchoppy cleanup.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Page 9BBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 27 Any Floridian with a mailbox, a telephone or a TV probably realized this week that an election is approaching. Just when people will be able to vote might actually be up in the air. As voters waded through nasty campaign mailers sent out by shadowy groups that may or may not have been related to candidates, as surrogates for the presidential candidates ew all over the place, a Democratic congresswoman led a federal lawsuit over the dates when Florida voters can start casting their ballots. Many Florida voters may not realize how close the primary is early voting for most of us starts at the end of next week, under the states new election law, which is about to be used for the rst time since being overhauled in 2011. But if the law hadnt changed, voting would have started at the beginning of next week. Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a Democrat, joined several Duval County residents in a federal lawsuit to block changes in Floridas election law that reduced the number of early voting days from 15 to 10. The new law, which passed over the objections of Democrats, also gives local election supervisors more discretion to decide exactly when polls will be open for early voting. Browns lawsuit alleges that the changes violate the U.S. Constitution and the federal Voting Rights Act. Early voting has worked extremely well for all Floridians and especially for African American voters, Brown said. In fact, more than any other racial or ethnic group, African Americans have come to rely on early voting. Election officials, however, say the lawsuit is misguided, arguing that Florida voters will still have ample time to cast ballots before Election Day. Browns is the latest crusade against perceived Republican-backed efforts to prevent a repeat of 2008 when a wave of new voters cast ballots early and ooded the polls on Election Day. Critics say the restrictions are thinly veiled attempts to make it harder for Democrat-leaning voters to cast ballots. Backers say its a way to curb costs for cash-strapped election supervisors and prevent fraud. Even former Gov. Charlie Crist jumped on the letthe-people-vote wagon this week as he told MSNBC such efforts were unconscionable. Crist, a Republican turned independent (and sometimes mentioned as a potential Democratic candidate), was the driving force behind efforts to automatically restore voting rights to most felons who had completed their sentences. Crists reforms were short lived. Among their rst actions, Gov. Rick Scott and the newly elected, all-Republican Cabinet rescinded the directive and made it even more difficult for felons to get their civil and voting rights restored. The idea of making it more difficult to exercise this precious right is just unconscionable to me, said Crist. ENVIRONMENTALISTS GO TO COURT Meanwhile, environmental groups in separate actions filed legal challenges this week in an effort to increase water ows to the Caloosahatchee River, and reduce nutrient-laden phosphorus levels in the Everglades. On Friday, the Florida Audubon Society led legal petitions to force the South Florida Water Management District to enforce more stringent laws put in place five years ago to reduce phosphorus levels coming into the Everglades. Audubon is seeking administrative hearings on separate permits granted to U.S. Sugar Corp., Sugar Farms Cooperative and the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative that the environmental group says do not require individual farms to reduce phosphorus releases to permissible levels, a requirement that began in 2007. Water management of cials say phosphorus levels have dropped signi cantly since 1994 and the district continues to work with farmers to lower that number even further. Earlier in the week, environmentalists led suit in federal court to force the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clean up the Caloosahatchee River by letting the river ow. The Corps operates three water stations on the river that control water levels downstream. In times of drought, the Corps largely cuts off the ow, leading to stagnation on the lower river that in turn leads to algae blooms and unhappy property owners and tourism of cials. PRISONS An appeals court this week ruled against Attorney General Pam Bondi in a longrunning battle over 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. MORE COURT FIGHTS Meanwhile, the saga of former Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer continued to play out for political observers, with a few news organizations this week reporting on recordings from the investigative le in which Greer acknowledged pulling down a lot of money while fundraising for the party, and wondering what he did with it. And in another blast from the recent past, former House Speaker Ray Sansom late this week sued to try to recoup his legal costs from his own downfall. Sansom was ousted as speaker and later quit the Legislature over allegations of improperly steering state money when he was budget chairman. But in a criminal case, he was cleared, and now he wants to be repaid the money he spent defending himself. CITIZENS BOARD APPROVES RATE HIKES The governing board of Citizens Property Insurance Corp approved tentative rate hikes averaging at least 8.8 percent for its 1.4 million policyholders. The board also stepped down from efforts to charge new policyholders more and instead will try to increase other costs in an effort to show all Citizens customers the real cost of their below market-rate, state-backed insurance. STORY OF THE WEEK: As the primary approaches and election intensity increases, the fight over the states election law continued, going to federal court in a new lawsuit, led by Rep. Corrine Brown. QUO TE OF THE WEEK: Hes a nice guy. Former Gov. Charlie Crist when asked what he thought of U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and whether hed be qualified to serve as vice president if he were chosen as a running mate for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.WEEKLY ROUND-UP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Election time is a-comin, but when? The Wakulla News PER COPY75 75 3 QUARTERS COIN RETURN By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netTwo people are dead and a third is recovering after an apparent home invasion in Wakulla Station on Wednesday, March 30. The suspect in the murders is 24-year-old Andrew Michael Wilson, the father of a 1year-old child who lived in the home. Wilson was arrested in Stewart County, Ga., and was later transported back to Wakulla County, where he is being held without bond on two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. The childs mother, Gabrielle McKenzie, 19, is currently in a Tallahassee hospital where she was being treated with a cut throat. The dead men are John Robert McKenzie, 62, and Patrick Lee Pittman, 24. While an autopsy is pending, the sheriff said the mens injuries are consistent with knife wounds. The child was injured and suffered some bruising in the attack and was found covered in blood by deputies and was inconsolable. The child was released to a family member. The murders took place in a single-wide mobile home on Field Loop Road, in an area off Bloxham Cutoff in Wakulla Station. Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey said evidence indicates it was a premeditated attack: Wilson apparently parked about a quarter-mile from the home and went inside sometime in the early morning hours. Investigators at the scene found a bloodtrail and footprints leading from the home to where they believe Wilson parked his car. Wilsons ngers were partially severed in the attack its not clear if the wound was from a knife or, as some investigators speculated, whether one of the victims may have bitten Wilsons ngers. It has been con rmed by investigators that it was Pittman who made the 911 call to the sheriffs of ce around 3:30 a.m. that brought deputies to the scene. Wilson was identi ed as a suspect by Gabrielle McKenzie, who spoke his name, the sheriff said. After issuing a BOLO (Be On the Lookout alert) Wilson was picked up after he wrecked his vehicle in south Georgia. Sheriff Harvey said it is believed Wilson was on his way to Columbus, Ga., where he reportedly has some connections. The sheriff also speculated that the wreck may have been due to blood loss from his hand injuries.

Page 10B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.com -Janet By DAVID WHITE If you ask a sommelier to name her favorite grape, theres a good chance shell say Riesling. If youre surprised, then its probably because you associate Riesling with the sweet, simple German wines of yesteryear, like Blue Nun, Liebfraumilch, and Piesporter. These wines were and still are affordable and approachable. And theyll always have fans. But they do a disservice to true Riesling. Fortunately, that could soon change. New York City sommelier and restaurateur Paul Grieco is on a mission to make sure that Americans give Riesling the respect it deserves. Griecos crusade began in 2008, when he announced a plan to focus on Riesling all summer long at Terroir Wine Bar in New York Citys East Village. In a single-minded attempt to get guests to at least try this noble grape, Grieco offered only Riesling as his by-the-glass white wine offering. As he tells it, the staff was incredulous and the guests suspect, but with 30 different glass pours we set upon a massive inspirational and educational scheme that was challenging and fun. His campaign quickly took off. In 2010, 14 wine bars in New York joined together to create a Riesling Pub Crawl; several well-known Riesling producers visited the city; and Grieco organized a concert where only Riesling was served. Last year, about 200 bars and restaurants across the country took part by hosting events, offering specials, and agreeing to spread the gospel of Riesling. This summer, the Summer of Riesling attracted nearly 500 participants. (To see if anyone is participating in your community, head to www.SummerOfRiesling. com.) Misconceptions still abound, but consumers are starting to recognize that Riesling is a serious grape. Over the past several years, Riesling sales have steadily risen. And sommeliers are nding that consumers are extremely receptive to the grape. Rieslings greatest strength is its versatility. First, theres its geographical diversity. While its ancestral home is Germany, where Riesling has been grown in the Rhine and Mosel Valleys since the 14th century, its also the most planted grape in the Alsace region of France. The grape is also experiencing a resurgence in the United States, especially in New Yorks Finger Lakes. And there are sizeable plantings of Riesling in Austria, New Zealand, and Australia. Theres also its sweetness. Some Rieslings are syrupy and lusciously sweet -and work as dessert. Others are bone dry, pairing best with raw sh, subtle cheeses, and other light dishes. Most fall somewhere in between, and are the perfect match for spicy Asian cuisine, like Thai and Indian. All are marked by high acidity, which is why its such an adaptable food wine. And all are extremely fragrant. Its no wonder why so many sommeliers love Riesling. Dont ever let Rieslings sweetness trick you into thinking its not a serious wine. Sommeliers also evangelize about Riesling because its so good at capturing terroir, or a wines sense of place. In part, this is because most Riesling is fermented in stainless steel, so it isnt manipulated through oak aging or other winemaking techniques. The grape is remarkably transparent German researchers have found a link between soil type and avor in Riesling. Riesling grapes sourced from slate vineyards tend to produce wines with citrus aromas, while grapes sourced from limestone vineyards typically result in more tropical fruit aromas. As Robert Parker, the worlds most famous wine critic, recently explained, If you want to talk about terroir, talk about German Rieslings or Alsace Rieslings, where the wines are naked theres no makeup. Even though Riesling sales have been rising, Grieco and other Riesling proselytizers still have their work cut out Riesling accounts for just 5 percent U.S. wine sales. But its not by accident that Riesling has long been known as the noblest of the noble grapes. So dont be surprised if the next time you dine out, your waiter steers you towards a glass of Riesling.

Page 16B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 2, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comBy WORKFORCE PLUSSpecial to The NewsDebbie Johnson has worked for more than three decades in various medical assistant roles. With that extensive experience in the healthcare eld, she knew that her time at a urologist of ce and an eye specialist clinic would serve her career well. My strength is my medical experience, Johnson said. I worked both the business side and the clinical part so Im a good swing person and I can work either in a team or by myself. Its easy to imagine how her world was upended after she was laid off after eight years. It wasnt personal it was totally administrative, Johnson said. We had to privatize the healthcare we offered. Despite her advance warning of the restructuring, Johnson was taken aback emotionally. I was in shock. I had thousands of thoughts going through my head, like What am I going to do now? Basically what normal people do when theyre laid off. Johnson immediately recognized an obstacle in her job search: she didnt know how to begin. I knew nothing about the way you approach a new employer, Johnson said. I had no idea about how interviewing has changed over the years. Feeling apprehensive about being a mature job seeker, Johnson decided to go to the Wakulla Workforce Plus to get started. She knew little about the non-pro t when she sought assistance. All I knew was that it was next to Ming Tree, she said. What she saw when she entered the office erased her feelings of being alone in her job search. When I walked in the of ce, there were others like me. There were other faces just like mine, peoples feelings in disarray, Johnson said. Sure enough this one gentleman had worked in the same place for 25 years and his company just dropped him all in one day, just like me. The Workforce Plus staff supported Johnson in starting a strong job search. They started with the basics: creating an email for her and explaining how to use it. At rst, Johnson wanted to omit her email address from her resume because she didnt have one. A Workforce Pus staff member changed her mind. No Debbie, Mike Riggins told me. You need to have an email on there. Or all those employers will look at your resume and think you are going to be too hard to get in touch with. Johnson said. Staff helped her to create a new resume complete with an email address. After those resumes went out, I got four or ve calls, Johnson added with pride. The next challenge Johnson had to address was interviewing. I thought I would be asked what attributes I had that made me quali ed for this position and then chitchat, Johnson said. She quickly realized that would not be the case. During my rst interview I had to take three tests. It blindsided me! I had no idea. Despite the surprise of the interview assessment, Johnson passed the test. Her success didnt end there. After learning how to interview, how to create a resume, how to search for vacancies on the computer and how to create and send emails, Johnson felt like she was nally in control of her future. I got three offers in the same day. I then weighed them logically with healthcare and retirement. The Records Clerk position at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce won, Johnson said. Theyre like family. I love working here. Everybody is great. With a turnaround of only one month, Johnson credits Workforce Plus with her success in navigating her job search. Workforce Plus kept me from going insane. I dont know what I would have done without them, Johnson said. Theyre so courteous and so willing to help. Ive never seen anything like it their compassion for helping people. Without the Workforce boards help, Johnson knows her career transition would have been entirely different. Johnson said she wouldnt have left her house had it not been for the optimism she gained from Worforce Plus. Her positive experience has enabled her to shed light on the process for other individuals who nd themselves looking for employment. First and foremost, you need to go to Workforce Plus. They have great knowledge and they are very professional, and many of them have been in the same situation and they can lead you in the right direction, Johnson said. Then, learn how to interview. It is not like it used to be. You need to know how to answer the question, How can you be an asset to this company? Now Johnson knows much more than just the location of the Workforce Plus of ce. I decided the rst day when I walked through that door next to Ming Tree, Johnson said, That Workforce Plus is the backbone of this county to get started all over again with your life.The Real People, Real Stories is developed by Workforce Plus, in partnership with The Wakulla News, to showcase a person whose journey in their career serves to inspire, uplift and encourage.
