That was the report given to school board members on Monday, Dec. 17, by Beth Brown, the districts energy conservation officer who works with the private company Cenergistic. Brown, a former teacher, said that the program only began in July but had saved the district $120,094 in electricity, water and sewer. New Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce credited recently retired Superintendent David Miller with the foresight to start the project, looking for ways to save the district money. Teachers in the audience applauded when they heard how much money had been saved. During the Citizens to be Heard portion of the meeting, Missy Rudd, head of the local teachers union, the Wakulla County Teachers Association, praised the money-saving efforts. But while acknowledging the tough economic times, Rudd encouraged the school board to “ nd some other savings to offer teachers payraises.

The “ re was reported at 21 Satinwood in Crawfordville.. Sheriffs Deputy Sean Wheeler arrived “ rst and reported to responding “ re“ ghters that the house was heavily involved and all occupants were out of the house. When the “ rst “ re unit arrived they found ” ames coming from several windows of the stilt home. Fire crews were able to make entry into the home and contain the fire to the master bedroom and bathroom. The rest of the home was heavily with smoke and heat. Wakulla County firefighters were able to bring the “ re under control in less than 10 minutes. In addition to county firefighters, volunteers from the Crawfordville and Apalachee Bay volunteer “ re departments responded to assist, as well as EMS. Units were on the scene for more than two hours assuring the fire at the heavily damaged home was completely out. The owner stated he had gone to the store to make a quick pick up and when he returned found smoke coming from the house. He had to travel to a nearby relatives home to call for the “ re department as his cell phone was in the house. Fire Chief Mike Morgan feels the cause was accidental and possibly due to a discarded cigarette. Morgan credited the quick response of all agencies involved in keeping the fire from consuming the entire structure. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netTallahassee Community College may have found the future site of its Wakulla Environmental Institute. The only thing standing in the way is the approval from the Wakulla County Commission to submit a comprehensive plan amendment to the state that would change the current locations future land use from agricultural to public facilities. The state would then review it. The 158-acre site is east of Crawfordville Highway and northwest of Wakulla Middle School and is three parcels owned by Kevin Gaby and Scott Gaby. TCC has entered into a contract with the owners to purchase the site to create an environmental institute which would offer programs that qualify graduates to work in the technical areas of water quality, natural resource management and environmental monitoring with the local, state and national levels of government and private enterprises such as environmental consulting firms. There will also be degree programs for Hospitality and Tourism Management, Aquaculture Management, Parks and Leisure Services Technology and Agribusiness Management. Our goal is to teach folks and train folks about the environment and to be stewards of the environment,Ž said Bob Ballard, executive director of the Wakulla Environmental Institute. And to provide skills and training for folks that will allow them to be able to get a job right after they get their two-year degree.Ž After looking at 15 to 20 sites, and not being able to settle on a price for TCCs first choice, Ballard said they decided to pursue this option. I found this site quite excellent for our new campus,Ž Ballard said. The site is centrally located, off U.S. Highway 319 and has several nice environmental features, he said. There is a sinkhole on the property, as well as a river rise which connects to the sinkhole by way of a natural bridge. There are also several low end areas which can be used to interpret wetland wildlife, Ballard said. The site also is mostly in planted pines, which is ideal, he added. We didnt want to disturb any wonderful or beautiful wildlife,Ž Ballard said. The comprehensive plan amendment came before the Wakulla County Planning Commission during a special called meeting on Dec. 17. The commission voted unanimously to recommend transmitting the amendment to the state. However, some commissioners did bring up a few concerns regarding the site. Planning Commissioner Chris Russell said he had some concerns about the location, ” ood zones, traf“ c and accessibility to sewer. I 100 percent agree with this,Ž Russell said, but he did have those few issues with the location. The only access to the property currently is from U.S. Highway 319, but Alan Wise of Preble-Rish, said future phases of the project may allow for another access point off U.S. Highway 98. As for the sewer, Wise said the county sent a letter stating they would serve the site once the upgrades and expansion are completed on its wastewater treatment plant. In the event the county is not done before the environmental institute is built, Wise said they have spoken to the school board which has said TCC might be able to hook up to its wastewater treatment plant at the middle school. Ballard said if neither of these are an option, it would give the school an opportunity to create a state of the art septic tank system.

TCC will create left and right turn lanes, as needed, and do whats required once traf“ c does increase. In the first two years though, Ballard said, there will be a very small amount of traf“ c. TCC was given $4.5 million to create this institute. The “ rst phase of this project will include a 10,000square foot administration and classroom building, which will serve as a jack of all trades building,Ž Ballard said. It will be designed in the Florida Cracker style and will be state of the art when it comes to being a green, environmentally friendly building, he said. There will be solar panels and windmills installed, as well as a still to collect rainwater for irrigation services and to ” ush toilets. There will also be LED lighting, extra insulation and geothermal air conditioning and heating systems. Every plant at the site will be multipurpose, such as providing shade and fruit. Everything there is keeping in mind, how can we be sustainable,Ž Ballard said. Future phases at the campus include building a hotel which will be staffed by instructors and students. Students looking to earn their associates degree in the areas of hotel and leisure will get handson training. Everybody in there will either be trained or are being trained,Ž Ballard said. TCC is also in negotiations with several other industries and is looking at offering other degree programs. One company approached them about offering an associate degree in recycling. They have also been talking to solar manufacturing companies about locating an assembly plant nearby. TCCs goal is to highlight Wakullas natural heritage and biodiversity to offer unique science and technology education opportunities and serve as an economic driver for the region. In September 2010, TCC was gifted 50 acres from the Wakulla County Expo Association to create the institute, but chose to purse other locations because they did not feel the site was large enough. The county commission will hear this item at its Jan. 7 meeting. If approved, it will be sent to the state for review. Wakulla Environmental InstituteSchools save $120,000 on energyContinued from Page 1A Rudd said that teachers are continually working harder and under increased scrutiny to meet higher expectations, but without a commensurate increase in salary. Rudds main concern, however, was the disproportionate ranking of highly effective teachers as opposed to high performing administrators … only 35 percent of teachers scored at that high level, while 93 percent of administrators scored that high. A high performing district like Wakulla doesnt achieve that distinction without effective teachers, Rudd told the school board. The school board members did not respond to Rudds concerns. In other matters: € The school board approved two expulsions for students, both on drugrelated offenses. In the first case, the student was at the Second Chance School and committed a zero-tolerance offense.Ž Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Beth ODonnell told the school board that the district had no choice but to expelŽ the student. In the second expulsion case, a student who had recently returned to Wakulla High School from Second Chance also committed a zero-tolerance offense.Ž The student will be allowed to enroll in GED classes. € The school board approved a resolution to name the lunchroom at the district of“ ce … which is the old Crawfordville Elementary School … as the Legacy Cafe: David Miller Center for Transitioning with Success. The lunchroom is staffed by special needs students who learn the skills to work in restaurants. Miller, who was at the meeting as a spectator, thanked the board for the honor. Send us your holiday photosEmail pictures to editor@thewakullanews.netSpecial to The NewsWakulla County recently announced several changes in Fire and Emergency Medical Services to enhance the emergency services provided to its citizens. Beginning Monday, Dec. 17, EMS personnel who are currently certi“ ed as “ re“ ghters will assist Wakulla County Fire Rescue. Using a pay incentive program, Emergency Medical Technicians and paramedics will receive compensation for performing two roles instead of traditionally only handling medical calls. Fire and EMS has always worked side-by-side serving our citizens,Ž said County Administrator David Edwards. With this new program, each employee who is certi“ ed in both areas will be able to function fully on either type of emergency. This will effectively double the amount of career “ re“ ghters who are on duty in Wakulla County from two to four on each shift. Edwards said the goal is accomplished for less than half the cost of adding one additional full-time employee. Its anticipated that as more EMS personnel achieve the cross training these numbers will increase,Ž Edwards said. Firefighters, who are all currently EMTs, will also be offered the incentive for becoming certified as paramedics.Ž Wakulla County depends on volunteer “ re“ ghters to respond from 10 different stations located across the county. With the implementation of the cross-training program, apparatus will respond quicker and be at the scene as volunteers arrive from their homes or places of work. In addition, the Medart Volunteer Fire Station is now being staffed 10 hours each weekday to increase the response for the south and east areas of the county. Volunteers are not as readily available to respond while they are at their full-time employment and this system will assure quicker response to “ re emergencies in this part of the county during the week. Cross-training begins for Fire and EMS in the countyCar passenger freed after being trapped in wreckSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Fire Rescue and Wakulla EMS responded to a report of a traf“ c accident at Bloxham Cutoff and Lonnie Raker Road at 11:17 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18. Two sheriffs deputies in front of Riversink Elementary School witnessed the accident and summoned assistance from Fire and EMS units. A westbound sedan was struck by a southbound motor home pulling another vehicle on a trailer. The driver of the passenger car was able to exit the vehicle on his own and refused treatment from EMS. The driver advised he would go to the hospital with a friend to seek treatment. The passenger was trapped in the vehicle. Fire“ ghters had to use hydraulic rescue tools to free the man who was then transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. The extrication process took approximately ten minutes to free the passenger. The two occupants of the motor home denied injury. They were traveling through Wakulla County from Tennessee.

First, I want to confess that I am far from an expert on the sponge “ shing industry, and what I write here is from what I was told many years ago by my mother and my grandfather, as well as my recollections as a very young boy. Maybe this account will raise the interest of someone with more hands onŽ knowledge, who will write a follow-up article or letter to the newspaper. I know that at one time there was a relatively large sponge “ shing ” eet which operated out of the port of Apalachicola. Many of the natives of the Florida Panhandle, in the general vicinity of that small town in Franklin County, as well as Wakulla and Leon counties, who now count the Greeks among their forebears, are descendants of those early sponge fishermen who came from Greece. The Greeks in the United States are well known for their outstanding restaurants and the quality of their cuisine. Blessed are we for having so many among us. You probably all know of the large sponge “ shing industry which operated out of Tarpon Springs, further south down our gulf coast. Down there the water where the sponges were harvested is deeper, so they are required to gather those sponges by using hard hatŽ divers. Many of our more matureŽ citizens will remember the movie, Beneath the Twelve Mile Reef,Ž a very good “ lm which portrayed sponge divers from Tarpon Springs. We have lots of commercial grade sponges out on the grass ” ats in the vicinity of the St. Marks Lighthouse. Because the water on the ” ats is fairly shallow, many of the Tarpon Springs sponge boats would gather on the ” ats near the lighthouse in the summer months. The sponges were much easier to gather since they didnt have to dive for them. What they did was use long handled hooks to get the sponges off the bottom. The way they saw the sponges was the man with the hook used a glass bottom bucket. By looking into the bucket, he would spot a good specimen, set his hook in it, and simply lift it into the boat. Those Greek boats were “ ne looking vessels. They were usually of the Greek Old WorldŽ style. Maybe 40-feet long with high bows and sterns. They were rigged for sail, but also had small gasoline engines in them for running when becalmed. Back in the 1950s when I worked as a helper for Mr. John Tooke on his boat, the Jenny Lee, I saw the flats east of the St. Marks River and Lighthouse, with many of those boats at anchor, and the small boats out from them gathering sponges. I never counted them, but would guess there were often up to 20 or so of those boats at anchor. I also have fond memories of those old days when the Greek boats would occasionally run up the river to St. Marks to replenish their supplies. Those Greek spongers were mighty good to this little tow-headed boy and Ill never forget that delicious Greek candy theyd give me. As best I can recall, it was a kind of gelatin texture with nuts in it and white powdered sugar on it. And Id bet many of you readers will recall the good old days when Shields Cafe was in operation in St. Marks. The proprietors were two Greek gentlemen, Pete and Nick, who took pride in putting out a great seafood spread and famous Greek salads. The caf burned many years ago, and I assume that Pete and Nick returned to their homes in the Tampa/Tarpon Springs area. In conclusion, Ill tell you what my grandfather, J. Y. Gresham Sr., keeper of the St. Marks Lighthouse from 1918 to 1949, told me about the Greek boats. Also, my mother, Vera Gresham Roberts, who was reared there, also told me of her observations. My grandfather reminded me that back in the early days, men had no way of knowing when storms were heading their way, other than to keep a keen eye on barometric readings. Grandfather was a very experienced man in that regard as he had weathered many a storm over the years. He could always tell when the weather was going to be bad as the barometric pressure dropped, but how bad was always the question. He told me he counted on the Greeks who were often off sponging nearby. He said as the barometric pressure continued to fall, the Greek boats would move off the ” ats and drop anchor right out in front of the lighthouse. Grandfather would predict a large and strong storm if the pressure dropped far enough coupled with observing those Greek boats pulling anchor and moving upriver. He said theyd line up as if on parade and seek the safety of distance from the open gulf, riding out the storm up around Newport, several miles upriver from the lighthouse. My grandfather had a lot of respect for the Greek spongers as mariners and said few could match them in their knowledge of the sea. They came from a long heritage of seamen, dating back to ancient Greece. My mother told me that when she was a little girl she observed how the Greeks took their meals aboard their boats. She said the cooks would prepare a meal in a big pot. She said the men would then sit around the pot in a circle and all eat from it at the same time. I dont recall if she only saw that happen once or twice or if that was their routine way of taking their meals. Because of the development of much cheaper synthetic sponges, the sponge industry has suffered greatly. I understand there are still some sponges taken by the Greeks around Tarpon Springs, and possibly in Apalachee Bay, but very few, and the business is nearly extinct. I doubt that few, if any, of their boats still venture up into the waters of Wakulla County as they did in the past. For those who never had the pleasure of seeing them out on the ” ats, very sad indeed. A last note: I would like to bring to the attention of our readers the fact that two interesting books may now be found on the shelves at the Historical Society Museum … The Greens and Cornbread of Wakulla County, Historic Stories Told by the PeopleŽ a collection of stories submitted, primarily by citizens of Wakulla and Leon counties, and Leon County, Florida Heritage Book, Historical Stories of Events, Places, & People that Shaped Tallahassee.Ž The Historical Society Museum is located at 24 High St. in Crawfordville, which is the old jail, directly behind the courthouse. The phone number is (850) 926-1110. John Roberts is a descendant of the former lighthouse keeper at the St. Marks Light and an avid local historian.

The Sparkman Family ank you notesSome additional thank yous More one-term commissioners Chicken jerky can be danger to pets Consider more “ re detectorsEditor, The News: As Christmas approaches, many people will be buying treats for their pets. I would like to make pet parents aware of a potentially deadly problem. There have been a number of reported illnesses and deaths associated with chicken jerky imported from China. This has been investigated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA is unable to issue a recall because no actual contaminant or poison has been found, however, it has issued a warning against feeding these products and has now extended the warning to duck and yam products as well. The common denominator is that all these products come from China. WagginTrain brand is one of the main brands and is presently hanging on local store shelves in the pet department. A federal class action law suit is pending against Nestle Purina Petcare Company, WagginTrain and distributors of the treats, including Wal-Mart. Do not feed your pet any food or treats that come from China. And check the back of the bag of frozen vegetables you may be purchasing for yourself. I have found bags of frozen vegetables in local stores that come from China. The FDA has reported 360 dog deaths and one cat death and thousands of illnesses from the suspect chicken, duck and yam jerky. Talk to your local veterinarian about safe treats for your pet and try to get treats and food that is grown and made in the United States. Sincerely, Dr. Linda Chalker Staff VeterinarianVCA Wakulla Animal HospitalCrawfordville Thank you to all our family and friends. Your cards, phone calls, visits, food and especially your prayers during the recent illness and death of Bill helped us make it through a most dif“ cult time. Please know that we appreciate everything you did for us. The Bill Roberts FamilyEditor, The News: A friend of mines son smelled smoke in the middle of the night. It jerked him from a deep sleep. Flames licked at the curtain in his room. Awake instantly, he yelled. Fire extinguisher in hand, Mom aimed at the drapes. Whoosh! Just in time. The room smelled like smoke, but everyone was okay. The family has two “ re detectors in the house. Neither one went off. This can be a real problem. Homes, especially new ones, can have tight doors. New buildings have air conditioning supplies and returns in each bedroom, so now we dont have to see a one-inch gap under the door for proper air circulation. The supplies and returns are good for a/c ef“ ciency, but it doesnt help my friend and her house. Their bedroom doors are practically sealed because they are so tight. Smoke did not leak under the sons door to set off the fire detector in the hall. The family went to Wal-Mart the very next morning and bought “ re detectors for every room of the house. With the holiday season upon us, more candles will burn, and more strings of lights will be jabbed into crowded sockets. Dry wreathes and Christmas trees are potentially “ re hazards. Holiday cookies might be forgotten to burn in the oven. Right now is a “ ne time to purchase “ re detectors for every room of your home. If you already have them, the beginning of the holiday season is a good time of year to replace batteries, if needed. Even if you have a detector that runs on current, it will have a battery backup. Backups are good. Be safe. Fire detectors in hallways are not enough. Marj Law CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: The Wakulla Free Riders would like to thank a few more who donated to the Poker Run on Dec. 1: Jacks BŽ Quick Kennels, Barwicks Seafood, Sheer Expressions and Sissy with Forever Roses. Many thanks to all who gave in a time of need. Connie Savage Wakulla Free Riders Editor, The News: One of the reasons three sitting county commissioners were voted out recently was because they thought they knew what was best for us local yokelsŽ (citizens of Wakulla County) and we werent smart enough to understand their great wisdom. We understood enough to get rid of them! Now we have three new commissioners who seem to be just like the old ones. Have they ever gone out and asked their constituents (citizens of Wakulla County) how they feel about the airport issue? I have never talked to anyone here who thinks the airport expansion is a good thing for US. There may be some grant money available now but when its gone the taxpayers will foot the bill for the building of any new facilities as well as maintenance and operations for EVER. At worst the existing airport could be closed and wed lose what? A dozen landings a year? I know, were just not smart enough to know whats good for us. I think we have some one-termŽ commissioners in the making. F.J.Young Crawfordville Saint Nicholas sat at the North Pole, His face re” ecting deep gloom, There wasnt even a tiny ho ho,Ž Or a smile to brighten the room. What is wrong with you?Ž said the Mrs., Tis the season to be merry, And you have a lot of work to do … Tis no time to sit and tarry.Ž The answer from Santa … a deep sigh, That undulated his belly, (Not like the happiness jiggle, Of a round little bowl full of jelly.) I fear there will be no Christmas this year. The worlds in a really big mess. There are tensions and wars all over the place, Plus greed and much sel“ shness. There are riots and “ res, tsunamis and more, Disasters reported each day, Folks and whole nations are loaded with debt, They have bills without money to pay, And even in America, A country thats always been great, Congress sits and does nothing in Washington To improve their “ scal state. Folks have lost their homes by foreclosure, Food prices are rising fast, Now having to deal with Christmas, I dont think that they can last. Im sure we should cancel this event, No one is feeling jolly, With no jobs, no time or money, Who can deck their halls with holly?Ž Mrs. Claus gave him a pitying look, Now, Nick, you listen here, Think whose birth were celebrating At this special time of year. Think of those folks around the world, Who keep holding on to their dreams, Who dont give up when times are bad, Nothings bad as it sometimes seems. Your job is to bring a bright spot To those who persevere, Like those who live in North Florida. Now get your rear in gear!Ž Santa looked down from the North Pole, Laughed at the Christmas parade. Looked at the hardworking people, His frown began to fade. His eyes began to twinkle, He began to load his sleigh, Dont worry little friendly town, Christmas is on the way. Even gifts for some on the naughty list I see they meant no harm. Nurse Judy and Bee Bee are forgiven,They have a certain charm. Of course, therell be a Christmas Maybe smaller than other years, But feeling Christmas joy in our hearts Helps block out some of our fears.Ž He kissed Mrs. Santa, then jumped in his sleigh, Ignoring astonished looks, For the sleigh was piled high with a surprising array Of a local authors collection of books. Merry Christmas, Judy, Nurse Judy and Bee Bee READERS WRITE:Christmas this year Judy Conlin Nurse Judy’s Nook Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Wakulla News.

JAMES L. SNYDER Since the election, there has been a lot of jibber-jabber by the kings and queens of jibber-jabber about some “ nancial cliff we are facing. I have no idea what they are talking about, and I have a suspicion they do not either, but if I am to guess I would say, it is not a great leap of faith. The great thing about being a jibber-jabber is you do not have to know what you are jibber-jabbering about. In fact, the less you know the more you can jabber your jib. As one great American consumer … and I only speak for myself … I am tired of all of this nonsense. In the light of this, I bring good news concerning this ominous financial cliff. I am always happy to bring a little bit of good news in the midst of all of the twaddle and idiotic jibber-jabbing that goes on in our country. I know good news does not make the front page but I think it helps those of us who are tired of the bad news. The good news concerning this “ nancial cliff is that we do not have to worry about it at all, thanks to the Mayan calendar. Wherever they are, somebody needs to congratulate them on saving not only our world but also our country from a “ nancial disaster. If we had the time, I would recommend that they be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. According to the Mayan calendar, the end of the world, whatever that means, is to take place on Dec. 21. How they had the foresight to come to our rescue at such a portentous time we will never know. Thanks to them, we do not have to worry about any financial cliff that might be looming ahead of us. I think this should be enough to silence all of this political jibber-jabber the rest of us are tired of hearing. As grateful as I am to the Mayan calendar, I do have a little bone to pick with them. I do not mind people predicting the end of the world. Really, they have nothing on me. For years I have predicted the end of the world at the end of every month. Believe me, some months I really came close to the end of the world. At least the end of my world. Now the bone I have to pick is simply this. Why did they pick Dec. 21, which is four days before Christmas? This is very frustrating to me. If they would have consulted with me, I would have suggested maybe the end of the month. After all, give everybody a few days to enjoy his or her last Christmas. Personally, I do not mind missing New Years Eve. In my opinion, it is all hype and nothing else. After all, Dick Clark is gone, so what is the use of celebrating New Years Eve? In my lifetime, I have seen enough people drop the ball; I do not need to stay up to midnight to watch everybody drop the ball. But Christmas Day … thats a whole different ballgame. The problem I face is simply this, if I buy a Christmas present and the world actually does end on Dec. 21, I have wasted my money. Being a tightwad as I am, that is a most blasphemous thing to do. On the other hand, if I do not buy Christmas presents assuming that the world will end on Dec. 21, I am going to be redder in the face on Christmas day than Santas suit. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage will not accept some lame excuse that I thought the world was going to end on Dec. 21. This whole thing has put me in quite a quandary. I know there have been hundreds of people down through the years predicting the end of the world. The problem I have is, what day is going to be right, and who is to say when? Many people are putting a lot of credence on this Mayan calendar. Some are pointing out how brilliant these people were. However, I have one simple question to ask is. If the Mayans were so smart, where in the world are they now? I am rather suspicious of their disappearance, especially, when we come to the end of the world according to their prediction. If they can predict the end of our world, why were they not able to predict the end of their world? So, let us say Dec. 21 is the end of the world. What I am doing to prepare myself for that is stockpiling Apple Fritters. I do not know what the end of the world means, I do not know the condition I am going to be in, but I do know that an Apple Fritter is the panacea for all ailments. If I just have enough Apple Fritters, I know I can face anything, even the end of the world. It would be nice that the last thing I do before the world ends is savor a delicious Apple Fritter. Actually, I have something much better. But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto youŽ (1 Peter 1:25 KJV). I do not know how the world is going to end, but I do know who is really in charge.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at (866) 552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@ att.net. OUT TO PASTORSo this is how the world ends?The birth of JesusBy ETHEL SKPPER Jesus birth is so important, it is the reason for the season. It makes you feel good, and bring people together, both family and friends. Isaiah 9:6 tell us that unto us a child is born and unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called wonderful counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Luke 1:14 and thou shall have joy and gladness and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink, and he shall be “ lled with the Holy Ghost. And many of the children of Israel shall be turn to the Lord their God. There will be a service in honor of Mother Doris Mackey. She is the oldest known member of the Church of Christ Written in Heaven in our area. One of the oldest cousin of the Rosier Family. Doris Mackey is a woman of wisdom and strength. She opened her doors during the past election and welcomed the public to have a get together for the Democratic Party. Mother Doris Mackey felt good about our president getting back in of“ ce. Everyone is welcome. On Dec. 23, at 11a.m., at Skipper Temple Church will be the Annual December Birth Month Service. Speaker will be the Rev. Robin Sapp. Happy birthday greetings to Vera Gavin, Willie Skipper, Marie Johnson, Gary Clary, Marie T. Johnson, Willie Harris, Swan Moore, Paul Richard Brown, Antonio Kilpatrick, Merry Christmas and many more birthdays. Let us remember those in need of prayer, and comfort from God only he can give through his Son Jesus. Let us pray for the sick, and shut-in, those in the hospital, the nursing homes, the prisons. Let us pray for each other and love one another. Buckhorn News PHOTO SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe Parish Family

Crew Mike Harrison, Norma Hill and Carolyn Treadon met Coxswain Tim Ashley at the fort on Saturday afternoon for what was supposed to be an Aids to Navigation (ATON) patrol before assisting with the boat parade later that evening. As we left the fort and made our way out to the center channel marker, we noticed a rapid decline in temperature and a layer of clouds rolling in. By the time we made it out towards the birds roost we felt it best that we discontinue the ATON patrol and remain closer to the more protected waters. Without our float coats, specially designed coats with the life jacket in the liner, we were concerned that our crew might get too cold with a long night ahead of us. As we returned to the fort for our Captains meeting, we checked the buoys to ensure they were in working order. Approaching a bend in the channel, we noticed a boater had tied up to one of the day markers. This is the time that we get to have a few minutes with someone and educate them about the rules of the road and help them understand the reasons behind the rules. The icing on the cake was watching the young boy on board reel in a “ sh. He was very proud of his catch! We met up with the second crew of Ray Crews, David Guttman, Chuck Hickman and Coxswain Mark Rosen dockside to prepare for the evening parade. While Tim and Mark were at the Captains meeting, the rest of the crew worked to get both facilities ready for the night. As we prepped, a sailboat motored up and asked about a free vessel exam. What a great opportunity once again to educate someone about the important items to have on board! It was then time to remind ourselves a bit on the importance of good communication. We are trained in Team Coordination Training (TCT) every year. It is a requirement that was put in place to try and prevent dangerous situations from occurring. As we prepared to leave the fort to meet the rest of the crew at Riverside, we did not double-check that everyone was aware of the plan and almost had a confusing situation on our hands. Thankfully it all came together with a simple phone call. With the sun going down, temperatures dropped down quickly and we all changed into our ” oat coats. Even when not moving fast, it is important to remain warm to prevent hypothermia from setting in. However, as the parade began, the importance of good communication became apparent. As the boats made their “ rst turn around by Lynns Marina, many were not following the line that had been established. While in daylight this may or may not be a problem, it was very dark and 10 boats were all in a small area. Thankfully, it all worked out! The boats were beautiful and everyone involved seemed to have a good time despite some technical dif“ culties with lights and generators. We were grateful to be a part of the festivities! As Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident. Teamwork and good communication are two items you dont want to forget on the dock. The Recovery Grim faces met me as we continued our police diver training at my place in Beechwood. The pool had been covered a month earlier, before the large hickory overlooking the deep end had shed its leaves. The deck was six inches deep in fresh crispy fall residue, the distinction between pool and deck lost with the underbrush. We pushed the deck leaves away and prepared to pull the bubble wrap off trying not to spill the overbearing pile of leaves into the pools water. They knew the water would be cold. They knew they would soon be in it and they were not optimistic of the task ahead. There was a crime scene within and they needed to record and recover evidence. Joerg Hess quickly deployed Deep Tracker, a new and inexpensive Remotely Operated Vehicle or ROV for short, attached to the surface by way of an umbilical. This colorful little droid quickly scampered around the deep end of the pool and found the body in no time at all. Robots like this are often seen as toys by police departments because they are controlled by game consoles, their color cameras displayed through glasses and just look like too much fun. The closest relative to the Deep Tracker costs in the upper $25,000 so the expense has been signi“ cant. At just $4,000, or half the cost of out“ tting another police diver, this creature caught our attention at DEMA, and we brought it home for a visit. Those that have visited the Center recently saw the granddaddy droid in the back that occupies 30 times the space, and requires a forklift to move. One person carries the Deep Tracker and all its support features in a foot-cubed plastic box. Now folks had to get in the water to verify what the droid so quickly found and solve the pending case. New dry suits were pulled over thermal protection against the 65 degree water. Soon a plan was set in place to record the crime scene the old fashioned way, by divers in situ (in the water at the site). After some preliminary steps, the “ rst team came back to report the body was facing east, appeared to be recently deceased and no other evidence could be found in the area. Everyone agreed to wait until the body was recovered before making positive ID. Witness reports con“ rmed that damage in the vicinity of the pool had caused the residing dog great unrest, the garden was torn up and as recently as the night before, an intruder was seen lurking near the pool gate. A body recovery shroud was deployed and with great care what was documented within the “ rst few minutes of our arrival, and validated by divers, was removed to the shallow end and carefully lifted to the pool deck. Everyone agreed, it was a rather large armadillo, remarkably preserved but very dead. Gaining access to the pool deck through the rails that surround it, this armadillo did not distinguish between the solid deck and the collapsing pool cover because of the leaf overburden. Once on the cover, there was little chance of recovery, its body slipping between the cover and the pool in what could best be described as leaf quicksand. Everyone agreed it could have been a human, considering the circumstances. Wakulla Sheriffs Dive Team with the ROV. Norma Hill, Mike Harrison and Tim Ashley preparing for the St. Marks boat parade.

Nurture a Healthy Identity Theft Mindset. Know it can happen to you. Law enforcement takes calls from people who believed they couldn’t become a victim of identity theft. Their reasons: “I don’t use credit”; “I shred everything”; “I have bad credit”; “Everything’s in my spouse’s name”; and so on. The fact is anyone can become a victim and everyone needs to take steps to reduce their risk. 2. Help Yourself to Strong Passwords. Avoid the simple, widely-used choices for passwords. “12345,” “123456,” and “123456789” were the Top Three most common passwords found when 32 million passwords exposed by a social network hack were analyzed. The other passwords in the list of the Top Ten were: “iloveyou,” “princess,” “rockyou,” “1234567,” “12345678,” and “abc123.” 3. The “Why” Behind the Tip. Know when account statements arrive, and check them when they are received. If a statement doesn’t arrive as usual, it may mean that someone has called the nancial institution involved, posed as you, changed the address on the account, and requested a new card. Call your nancial institution to inquire about any late statements; ask if changes to the account were made recently. Reconcile bank and credit card statements monthly. Call the nancial institution that issued the card if you do not receive the account statement when expected. If you nd unauthorized charges, dispute them with the nancial institution, not the merchant. You would call the merchant only if you are not sure whether or not you authorized the charge. 4. Take Steps to Secure Your Mobile Apps. If your mobile device is lost or stolen, react quickly to minimize damage caused by unauthorized access to information on the device. Install a program that allows you to remotely wipe data from the device if it is lost or stolen. 5. Beware of IRS-Themed Scams Do not respond to e-mail messages that appear to be from the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS does not send taxpayers unsolicited e-mails about their tax accounts nor does it request detailed personal information through e-mail.5 tips to protect against identity theft HARRISON BAIL BONDS850-926-2299Franklin County 850-670-3333Locally Owned & Operated by Mike Harrison Since 1995 3039 Crawfordville Hwy., Crawfordville www.wakullabailbonds.comA-AAA Commercial Residential & Mobile Homes Repairs Sales Service All Makes and Models(850) 926-3546LIC. #RA0062516 r r s Locally Owned and Operated Since 1991 Open 9-5 Closed Sun. & Wed.Mon.

Santas sleigh has been packed for days and he is half way through rechecking his naughty and nice list. Children everywhere are counting the hours and are, basic inclinations notwithstanding, on their very best behavior. Many things have changed about the way the holiday is celebrated. Black Friday is giving way to cyber Monday. Gift cards are conveniently replacing hours of pillaging through retail establishment for the right gift in the perfect color. Fathers have ceased to spend long nights with strong coffee and a some assembly requiredŽ doll house in 627 small pieces. One tradition which has not changed for centuries is a kiss under the mistletoe. This parasitic plant commonly found growing in Wakulla County hardwood trees has a long and storied history in religion, folklore and pagan rites across several continents. Mistletoe plants can grow in a variety of local hardwood trees, most typically in pecans and oaks. Across its range mistletoe can be hosted by more than 200 different shrubs and trees. This plants sprouts are equipped to utilize available nutrients and water until they are “ rmly attached to a host which will do most of the work for them. Classified as hemiparasites, mistletoe does engage in some photosynthesis while deriving most of its sustenance from the host plant. Mistletoe is easy to spot in the tops of trees that are shedding their leaves in autumn. The growth position in the tree provides mistletoe with several advantages. Birds are primarily responsible for spreading mistletoe seed, and the plants are an attractive source of food during the sparse winter months. The plants location in the top of the tree is easily visible to birds and a safe location for the birds to dine. The growth clusters in the top of the tree also minimize the possibility the rather brittle, delicate plants will be damaged by larger animals looking for a meal. Stalks of mistletoe are easily broken with minimum effort. As a parasite, heavy infestations of mistletoe are an indication of a tree in decline. The trees defenses are helpless against mistletoes roots which penetrate the bark and rob needed nutrients. Because of its ability to produce fruit and seed in the winter months and other unique qualities, a number of early cultures credited mistletoe with mystical powers. The early residents of the Scandinavia had an intricate sacred soap opera revolving around the misuse of mistletoe involving jealousy, envy, and murder. Even a divine sword was named after the parasitic plant. The citizens of the Roman Empire were more inclined to consider mistletoe in the pharmaceutical line. The plant could be considered a treatment for a variety of conditions, depending on the physician who was making the diagnosis. Kissing under the mistletoe was “ rst noted in the early 1500s, no doubt by a watchful parent keeping a sharp eye on their daughter. Not surprisingly, the custom caught on and has remained popular for centuries.

Young mistletoe shown established in the bark of the host tree. Please Recycle By MELINDA MYERSGardening expertReduce stress and enhance your familys enjoyment this season by increasing the bene“ ts of holiday dcor and gifts and by taking a few shortcuts to properly care for holiday trees and plants. 1. Keep your Christmas tree looking its best by keeping the tree stand filled with water. Make this a daily chore for someone trying to stay on Santas nice list. Dont worry if good help is hard to “ nd. Purchase or make your own self-watering device. Use a decorative tin or plastic bucket set in a box and wrapped to hide its presence. Fill it with water and run a piece of plastic tubing from the bucket to the tree stand. Weight each end of the tubing, so it stays at the bottom of the reservoir. Test before leaving town to make sure it is in working order. 2. Add some holiday plants this year. Many studies have shown that indoor plants can boost mood levels, reduce fatigue and even lower stress. Plus, its easy to extend the life of your holiday plants. Place them in a cool bright location away from drafts of hot or cold air. Water thoroughly and often enough to keep the soil moist. Pour off any excess water that collects in the saucer, basket or foil wrap to prevent root rot. 3. Use nature-inspired decorations that provide enjoyment throughout the holiday season and beyond. Colorful stems, white painted allium seed heads and wooden stars can add beauty throughout the holidays and much of the year. Red wood wreaths are festive enough for the holidays and timeless enough to leave hanging on your wall year round. Luminaries can be used to light the entrance to your home or the path to your outdoor living space during warmer months. 4. Spruce up indoor plants with a few holiday flowers, spangles and lights. Place a few cut ” owers in ” oral picks “ lled with water. Place these in one or more of your houseplants for some seasonal color. Or add one of the miniature poinsettias, kalanchoes or cyclamen to a large planter. Simply sink the ” owering plant, pot and all, into your houseplant container. Replace the small ” owering plants as they fade or the seasons change. Add colorful stems, ribbons and winter branch lights to your houseplants and planters for a bit of seasonal sparkle. Branch lights are also a festive way to light an entrance, bathroom, or other out of the way space. Look for lights with timers to extend the life of the batteries and reduce your workload. 5. Increase value and extend enjoyment with gifts that give twice. A tabletop spruce tree, perfect for any size home can add greenery and fragrance long past the holidays. And, once the weather is suitable for planting, move your tree into the garden throughout the coming year.

There were 210 families picking up donations of goods given by the community … and picking up a frozen turkey and other food from Farmshare.

But Ashley noted it is the largest single effort of the year to help local families in need … coordinated through the youth coalition, with its different members referring families in need. The need is growing every year,Ž Ashley said. Campbell told the story of a woman who came by the community center and dropped off a donation of $1,000 in cash and refused to give her name.

That was the report given to school board members on Monday, Dec. 17, by Beth Brown, the districts energy conservation officer who works with the private company Cenergistic. Brown, a former teacher, said that the program only began in July but had saved the district $120,094 in electricity, water and sewer. New Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce credited recently retired Superintendent David Miller with the foresight to start the project, looking for ways to save the district money. Teachers in the audience applauded when they heard how much money had been saved. During the Citizens to be Heard portion of the meeting, Missy Rudd, head of the local teachers union, the Wakulla County Teachers Association, praised the money-saving efforts. But while acknowledging the tough economic times, Rudd encouraged the school board to nd some other savings to offer teachers payraises. Continued on Page 2ASchools save $120,000 in energy costs gets approval by planning commission for newSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Fire Rescue responded to a report of a house re at 11:17 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 16. The re was reported at 21 Satinwood in Crawfordville.. Sheriffs Deputy Sean Wheeler arrived rst and reported to responding re ghters that the house was heavily involved and all occupants were out of the house. When the rst re unit arrived they found ames coming from several windows of the stilt home. Fire crews were able to make entry into the home and contain the fire to the master bedroom and bathroom. The rest of the home was heavily with smoke and heat. Wakulla County firefighters were able to bring the re under control in less than 10 minutes. In addition to county firefighters, volunteers from the Crawfordville and Apalachee Bay volunteer re departments responded to assist, as well as EMS. Units were on the scene for more than two hours assuring the fire at the heavily damaged home was completely out. The owner stated he had gone to the store to make a quick pick up and when he returned found smoke coming from the house. He had to travel to a nearby relatives home to call for the re department as his cell phone was in the house. Fire Chief Mike Morgan feels the cause was accidental and possibly due to a discarded cigarette. Morgan credited the quick response of all agencies involved in keeping the fire from consuming the entire structure. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netTallahassee Community College may have found the future site of its Wakulla Environmental Institute. The only thing standing in the way is the approval from the Wakulla County Commission to submit a comprehensive plan amendment to the state that would change the current locations future land use from agricultural to public facilities. The state would then review it. The 158-acre site is east of Crawfordville Highway and northwest of Wakulla Middle School and is three parcels owned by Kevin Gaby and Scott Gaby. TCC has entered into a contract with the owners to purchase the site to create an environmental institute which would offer programs that qualify graduates to work in the technical areas of water quality, natural resource management and environmental monitoring with the local, state and national levels of government and private enterprises such as environmental consulting firms. There will also be degree programs for Hospitality and Tourism Management, Aquaculture Management, Parks and Leisure Services Technology and Agribusiness Management. Our goal is to teach folks and train folks about the environment and to be stewards of the environment, said Bob Ballard, executive director of the Wakulla Environmental Institute. And to provide skills and training for folks that will allow them to be able to get a job right after they get their two-year degree. After looking at 15 to 20 sites, and not being able to settle on a price for TCCs first choice, Ballard said they decided to pursue this option. I found this site quite excellent for our new campus, Ballard said. The site is centrally located, off U.S. Highway 319 and has several nice environmental features, he said. There is a sinkhole on the property, as well as a river rise which connects to the sinkhole by way of a natural bridge. There are also several low end areas which can be used to interpret wetland wildlife, Ballard said. The site also is mostly in planted pines, which is ideal, he added. We didnt want to disturb any wonderful or beautiful wildlife, Ballard said. The comprehensive plan amendment came before the Wakulla County Planning Commission during a special called meeting on Dec. 17. The commission voted unanimously to recommend transmitting the amendment to the state. However, some commissioners did bring up a few concerns regarding the site. Planning Commissioner Chris Russell said he had some concerns about the location, ood zones, traf c and accessibility to sewer. I 100 percent agree with this, Russell said, but he did have those few issues with the location. The only access to the property currently is from U.S. Highway 319, but Alan Wise of Preble-Rish, said future phases of the project may allow for another access point off U.S. Highway 98. As for the sewer, Wise said the county sent a letter stating they would serve the site once the upgrades and expansion are completed on its wastewater treatment plant. In the event the county is not done before the environmental institute is built, Wise said they have spoken to the school board which has said TCC might be able to hook up to its wastewater treatment plant at the middle school. Ballard said if neither of these are an option, it would give the school an opportunity to create a state of the art septic tank system.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 20, 2012 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Any issue or problem, we take as an opportunity to show how to do it right, Ballard said. I didnt see it as a problem, I saw it as an opportunity. There was some concern about the potential increase of traffic on the already congested U.S. Highway 319 once the school is built. TCC will create left and right turn lanes, as needed, and do whats required once traf c does increase. In the first two years though, Ballard said, there will be a very small amount of traf c. TCC was given $4.5 million to create this institute. The rst phase of this project will include a 10,000square foot administration and classroom building, which will serve as a jack of all trades building, Ballard said. It will be designed in the Florida Cracker style and will be state of the art when it comes to being a green, environmentally friendly building, he said. There will be solar panels and windmills installed, as well as a still to collect rainwater for irrigation services and to ush toilets. There will also be LED lighting, extra insulation and geothermal air conditioning and heating systems. Every plant at the site will be multipurpose, such as providing shade and fruit. Everything there is keeping in mind, how can we be sustainable, Ballard said. Future phases at the campus include building a hotel which will be staffed by instructors and students. Students looking to earn their associates degree in the areas of hotel and leisure will get handson training. Everybody in there will either be trained or are being trained, Ballard said. TCC is also in negotiations with several other industries and is looking at offering other degree programs. One company approached them about offering an associate degree in recycling. They have also been talking to solar manufacturing companies about locating an assembly plant nearby. TCCs goal is to highlight Wakullas natural heritage and biodiversity to offer unique science and technology education opportunities and serve as an economic driver for the region. In September 2010, TCC was gifted 50 acres from the Wakulla County Expo Association to create the institute, but chose to purse other locations because they did not feel the site was large enough. The county commission will hear this item at its Jan. 7 meeting. If approved, it will be sent to the state for review. Wakulla Environmental InstituteSchools save $120,000 on energyContinued from Page 1A Rudd said that teachers are continually working harder and under increased scrutiny to meet higher expectations, but without a commensurate increase in salary. Rudds main concern, however, was the disproportionate ranking of highly effective teachers as opposed to high performing administrators only 35 percent of teachers scored at that high level, while 93 percent of administrators scored that high. A high performing district like Wakulla doesnt achieve that distinction without effective teachers, Rudd told the school board. The school board members did not respond to Rudds concerns. In other matters: The school board approved two expulsions for students, both on drugrelated offenses. In the first case, the student was at the Second Chance School and committed a zero-tolerance offense. Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Beth ODonnell told the school board that the district had no choice but to expel the student. In the second expulsion case, a student who had recently returned to Wakulla High School from Second Chance also committed a zero-tolerance offense. The student will be allowed to enroll in GED classes. The school board approved a resolution to name the lunchroom at the district of ce which is the old Crawfordville Elementary School as the Legacy Cafe: David Miller Center for Transitioning with Success. The lunchroom is staffed by special needs students who learn the skills to work in restaurants. Miller, who was at the meeting as a spectator, thanked the board for the honor. Send us your holiday photosEmail pictures to editor@thewakullanews.netSpecial to The NewsWakulla County recently announced several changes in Fire and Emergency Medical Services to enhance the emergency services provided to its citizens. Beginning Monday, Dec. 17, EMS personnel who are currently certi ed as re- ghters will assist Wakulla County Fire Rescue. Using a pay incentive program, Emergency Medical Technicians and paramedics will receive compensation for performing two roles instead of traditionally only handling medical calls. Fire and EMS has always worked side-by-side serving our citizens, said County Administrator David Edwards. With this new program, each employee who is certi ed in both areas will be able to function fully on either type of emergency. This will effectively double the amount of career re- ghters who are on duty in Wakulla County from two to four on each shift. Edwards said the goal is accomplished for less than half the cost of adding one additional full-time employee. Its anticipated that as more EMS personnel achieve the cross training these numbers will increase, Edwards said. Firefighters, who are all currently EMTs, will also be offered the incentive for becoming certified as paramedics. Wakulla County depends on volunteer re ghters to respond from 10 different stations located across the county. With the implementation of the cross-training program, apparatus will respond quicker and be at the scene as volunteers arrive from their homes or places of work. In addition, the Medart Volunteer Fire Station is now being staffed 10 hours each weekday to increase the response for the south and east areas of the county. Volunteers are not as readily available to respond while they are at their full-time employment and this system will assure quicker response to re emergencies in this part of the county during the week. Cross-training begins for Fire and EMS in the countyCar passenger freed after being trapped in wreckSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Fire Rescue and Wakulla EMS responded to a report of a traf c accident at Bloxham Cutoff and Lonnie Raker Road at 11:17 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18. Two sheriffs deputies in front of Riversink Elementary School witnessed the accident and summoned assistance from Fire and EMS units. A westbound sedan was struck by a southbound motor home pulling another vehicle on a trailer. The driver of the passenger car was able to exit the vehicle on his own and refused treatment from EMS. The driver advised he would go to the hospital with a friend to seek treatment. The passenger was trapped in the vehicle. Fire ghters had to use hydraulic rescue tools to free the man who was then transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. The extrication process took approximately ten minutes to free the passenger. The two occupants of the motor home denied injury. They were traveling through Wakulla County from Tennessee.

First, I want to confess that I am far from an expert on the sponge shing industry, and what I write here is from what I was told many years ago by my mother and my grandfather, as well as my recollections as a very young boy. Maybe this account will raise the interest of someone with more hands on knowledge, who will write a follow-up article or letter to the newspaper. I know that at one time there was a relatively large sponge shing eet which operated out of the port of Apalachicola. Many of the natives of the Florida Panhandle, in the general vicinity of that small town in Franklin County, as well as Wakulla and Leon counties, who now count the Greeks among their forebears, are descendants of those early sponge fishermen who came from Greece. The Greeks in the United States are well known for their outstanding restaurants and the quality of their cuisine. Blessed are we for having so many among us. You probably all know of the large sponge shing industry which operated out of Tarpon Springs, further south down our gulf coast. Down there the water where the sponges were harvested is deeper, so they are required to gather those sponges by using hard hat divers. Many of our more mature citizens will remember the movie, Beneath the Twelve Mile Reef, a very good lm which portrayed sponge divers from Tarpon Springs. We have lots of commercial grade sponges out on the grass ats in the vicinity of the St. Marks Lighthouse. Because the water on the ats is fairly shallow, many of the Tarpon Springs sponge boats would gather on the ats near the lighthouse in the summer months. The sponges were much easier to gather since they didnt have to dive for them. What they did was use long handled hooks to get the sponges off the bottom. The way they saw the sponges was the man with the hook used a glass bottom bucket. By looking into the bucket, he would spot a good specimen, set his hook in it, and simply lift it into the boat. Those Greek boats were ne looking vessels. They were usually of the Greek Old World style. Maybe 40-feet long with high bows and sterns. They were rigged for sail, but also had small gasoline engines in them for running when becalmed. Back in the 1950s when I worked as a helper for Mr. John Tooke on his boat, the Jenny Lee, I saw the flats east of the St. Marks River and Lighthouse, with many of those boats at anchor, and the small boats out from them gathering sponges. I never counted them, but would guess there were often up to 20 or so of those boats at anchor. I also have fond memories of those old days when the Greek boats would occasionally run up the river to St. Marks to replenish their supplies. Those Greek spongers were mighty good to this little tow-headed boy and Ill never forget that delicious Greek candy theyd give me. As best I can recall, it was a kind of gelatin texture with nuts in it and white powdered sugar on it. And Id bet many of you readers will recall the good old days when Shields Cafe was in operation in St. Marks. The proprietors were two Greek gentlemen, Pete and Nick, who took pride in putting out a great seafood spread and famous Greek salads. The caf burned many years ago, and I assume that Pete and Nick returned to their homes in the Tampa/Tarpon Springs area. In conclusion, Ill tell you what my grandfather, J. Y. Gresham Sr., keeper of the St. Marks Lighthouse from 1918 to 1949, told me about the Greek boats. Also, my mother, Vera Gresham Roberts, who was reared there, also told me of her observations. My grandfather reminded me that back in the early days, men had no way of knowing when storms were heading their way, other than to keep a keen eye on barometric readings. Grandfather was a very experienced man in that regard as he had weathered many a storm over the years. He could always tell when the weather was going to be bad as the barometric pressure dropped, but how bad was always the question. He told me he counted on the Greeks who were often off sponging nearby. He said as the barometric pressure continued to fall, the Greek boats would move off the ats and drop anchor right out in front of the lighthouse. Grandfather would predict a large and strong storm if the pressure dropped far enough coupled with observing those Greek boats pulling anchor and moving upriver. He said theyd line up as if on parade and seek the safety of distance from the open gulf, riding out the storm up around Newport, several miles upriver from the lighthouse. My grandfather had a lot of respect for the Greek spongers as mariners and said few could match them in their knowledge of the sea. They came from a long heritage of seamen, dating back to ancient Greece. My mother told me that when she was a little girl she observed how the Greeks took their meals aboard their boats. She said the cooks would prepare a meal in a big pot. She said the men would then sit around the pot in a circle and all eat from it at the same time. I dont recall if she only saw that happen once or twice or if that was their routine way of taking their meals. Because of the development of much cheaper synthetic sponges, the sponge industry has suffered greatly. I understand there are still some sponges taken by the Greeks around Tarpon Springs, and possibly in Apalachee Bay, but very few, and the business is nearly extinct. I doubt that few, if any, of their boats still venture up into the waters of Wakulla County as they did in the past. For those who never had the pleasure of seeing them out on the ats, very sad indeed. A last note: I would like to bring to the attention of our readers the fact that two interesting books may now be found on the shelves at the Historical Society Museum The Greens and Cornbread of Wakulla County, Historic Stories Told by the People a collection of stories submitted, primarily by citizens of Wakulla and Leon counties, and Leon County, Florida Heritage Book, Historical Stories of Events, Places, & People that Shaped Tallahassee. The Historical Society Museum is located at 24 High St. in Crawfordville, which is the old jail, directly behind the courthouse. The phone number is (850) 926-1110. John Roberts is a descendant of the former lighthouse keeper at the St. Marks Light and an avid local historian.

The Sparkman Family ank you notesSome additional thank yous More one-term commissioners Chicken jerky can be danger to pets Consider more re detectorsEditor, The News: As Christmas approaches, many people will be buying treats for their pets. I would like to make pet parents aware of a potentially deadly problem. There have been a number of reported illnesses and deaths associated with chicken jerky imported from China. This has been investigated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA is unable to issue a recall because no actual contaminant or poison has been found, however, it has issued a warning against feeding these products and has now extended the warning to duck and yam products as well. The common denominator is that all these products come from China. WagginTrain brand is one of the main brands and is presently hanging on local store shelves in the pet department. A federal class action law suit is pending against Nestle Purina Petcare Company, WagginTrain and distributors of the treats, including Wal-Mart. Do not feed your pet any food or treats that come from China. And check the back of the bag of frozen vegetables you may be purchasing for yourself. I have found bags of frozen vegetables in local stores that come from China. The FDA has reported 360 dog deaths and one cat death and thousands of illnesses from the suspect chicken, duck and yam jerky. Talk to your local veterinarian about safe treats for your pet and try to get treats and food that is grown and made in the United States. Sincerely, Dr. Linda Chalker Staff VeterinarianVCA Wakulla Animal HospitalCrawfordville Thank you to all our family and friends. Your cards, phone calls, visits, food and especially your prayers during the recent illness and death of Bill helped us make it through a most dif cult time. Please know that we appreciate everything you did for us. The Bill Roberts FamilyEditor, The News: A friend of mines son smelled smoke in the middle of the night. It jerked him from a deep sleep. Flames licked at the curtain in his room. Awake instantly, he yelled. Fire extinguisher in hand, Mom aimed at the drapes. Whoosh! Just in time. The room smelled like smoke, but everyone was okay. The family has two re detectors in the house. Neither one went off. This can be a real problem. Homes, especially new ones, can have tight doors. New buildings have air conditioning supplies and returns in each bedroom, so now we dont have to see a one-inch gap under the door for proper air circulation. The supplies and returns are good for a/c ef ciency, but it doesnt help my friend and her house. Their bedroom doors are practically sealed because they are so tight. Smoke did not leak under the sons door to set off the fire detector in the hall. The family went to Wal-Mart the very next morning and bought re detectors for every room of the house. With the holiday season upon us, more candles will burn, and more strings of lights will be jabbed into crowded sockets. Dry wreathes and Christmas trees are potentially re hazards. Holiday cookies might be forgotten to burn in the oven. Right now is a ne time to purchase re detectors for every room of your home. If you already have them, the beginning of the holiday season is a good time of year to replace batteries, if needed. Even if you have a detector that runs on current, it will have a battery backup. Backups are good. Be safe. Fire detectors in hallways are not enough. Marj Law CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: The Wakulla Free Riders would like to thank a few more who donated to the Poker Run on Dec. 1: Jacks B Quick Kennels, Barwicks Seafood, Sheer Expressions and Sissy with Forever Roses. Many thanks to all who gave in a time of need. Connie Savage Wakulla Free Riders Editor, The News: One of the reasons three sitting county commissioners were voted out recently was because they thought they knew what was best for us local yokels (citizens of Wakulla County) and we werent smart enough to understand their great wisdom. We understood enough to get rid of them! Now we have three new commissioners who seem to be just like the old ones. Have they ever gone out and asked their constituents (citizens of Wakulla County) how they feel about the airport issue? I have never talked to anyone here who thinks the airport expansion is a good thing for US. There may be some grant money available now but when its gone the taxpayers will foot the bill for the building of any new facilities as well as maintenance and operations for EVER. At worst the existing airport could be closed and wed lose what? A dozen landings a year? I know, were just not smart enough to know whats good for us. I think we have some one-term commissioners in the making. F.J.Young Crawfordville Saint Nicholas sat at the North Pole, His face re ecting deep gloom, There wasnt even a tiny ho ho, Or a smile to brighten the room. What is wrong with you? said the Mrs., Tis the season to be merry, And you have a lot of work to do Tis no time to sit and tarry. The answer from Santa a deep sigh, That undulated his belly, (Not like the happiness jiggle, Of a round little bowl full of jelly.) I fear there will be no Christmas this year. The worlds in a really big mess. There are tensions and wars all over the place, Plus greed and much sel shness. There are riots and res, tsunamis and more, Disasters reported each day, Folks and whole nations are loaded with debt, They have bills without money to pay, And even in America, A country thats always been great, Congress sits and does nothing in Washington To improve their scal state. Folks have lost their homes by foreclosure, Food prices are rising fast, Now having to deal with Christmas, I dont think that they can last. Im sure we should cancel this event, No one is feeling jolly, With no jobs, no time or money, Who can deck their halls with holly? Mrs. Claus gave him a pitying look, Now, Nick, you listen here, Think whose birth were celebrating At this special time of year. Think of those folks around the world, Who keep holding on to their dreams, Who dont give up when times are bad, Nothings bad as it sometimes seems. Your job is to bring a bright spot To those who persevere, Like those who live in North Florida. Now get your rear in gear! Santa looked down from the North Pole, Laughed at the Christmas parade. Looked at the hardworking people, His frown began to fade. His eyes began to twinkle, He began to load his sleigh, Dont worry little friendly town, Christmas is on the way. Even gifts for some on the naughty list I see they meant no harm. Nurse Judy and Bee Bee are forgiven, They have a certain charm. Of course, t herell be a Christmas Maybe smaller than other years, But feeling Christmas joy in our hearts Helps block out some of our fears. He kissed Mrs. Santa, then jumped in his sleigh, Ignoring astonished looks, For the sleigh was piled high with a surprising array Of a local authors collection of books. Merry Christmas, Judy, Nurse Judy and Bee Bee READERS WRITE:Christmas this year Judy Conlin Nurse Judys Nook Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Wakulla News.

JAMES L. SNYDER Since the election, there has been a lot of jibber-jabber by the kings and queens of jibber-jabber about some nancial cliff we are facing. I have no idea what they are talking about, and I have a suspicion they do not either, but if I am to guess I would say, it is not a great leap of faith. The great thing about being a jibber-jabber is you do not have to know what you are jibber-jabbering about. In fact, the less you know the more you can jabber your jib. As one great American consumer and I only speak for myself I am tired of all of this nonsense. In the light of this, I bring good news concerning this ominous financial cliff. I am always happy to bring a little bit of good news in the midst of all of the twaddle and idiotic jibber-jabbing that goes on in our country. I know good news does not make the front page but I think it helps those of us who are tired of the bad news. The good news concerning this nancial cliff is that we do not have to worry about it at all, thanks to the Mayan calendar. Wherever they are, somebody needs to congratulate them on saving not only our world but also our country from a nancial disaster. If we had the time, I would recommend that they be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. According to the Mayan calendar, the end of the world, whatever that means, is to take place on Dec. 21. How they had the foresight to come to our rescue at such a portentous time we will never know. Thanks to them, we do not have to worry about any financial cliff that might be looming ahead of us. I think this should be enough to silence all of this political jibber-jabber the rest of us are tired of hearing. As grateful as I am to the Mayan calendar, I do have a little bone to pick with them. I do not mind people predicting the end of the world. Really, they have nothing on me. For years I have predicted the end of the world at the end of every month. Believe me, some months I really came close to the end of the world. At least the end of my world. Now the bone I have to pick is simply this. Why did they pick Dec. 21, which is four days before Christmas? This is very frustrating to me. If they would have consulted with me, I would have suggested maybe the end of the month. After all, give everybody a few days to enjoy his or her last Christmas. Personally, I do not mind missing New Years Eve. In my opinion, it is all hype and nothing else. After all, Dick Clark is gone, so what is the use of celebrating New Years Eve? In my lifetime, I have seen enough people drop the ball; I do not need to stay up to midnight to watch everybody drop the ball. But Christmas Day thats a whole different ballgame. The problem I face is simply this, if I buy a Christmas present and the world actually does end on Dec. 21, I have wasted my money. Being a tightwad as I am, that is a most blasphemous thing to do. On the other hand, if I do not buy Christmas presents assuming that the world will end on Dec. 21, I am going to be redder in the face on Christmas day than Santas suit. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage will not accept some lame excuse that I thought the world was going to end on Dec. 21. This whole thing has put me in quite a quandary. I know there have been hundreds of people down through the years predicting the end of the world. The problem I have is, what day is going to be right, and who is to say when? Many people are putting a lot of credence on this Mayan calendar. Some are pointing out how brilliant these people were. However, I have one simple question to ask is. If the Mayans were so smart, where in the world are they now? I am rather suspicious of their disappearance, especially, when we come to the end of the world according to their prediction. If they can predict the end of our world, why were they not able to predict the end of their world? So, let us say Dec. 21 is the end of the world. What I am doing to prepare myself for that is stockpiling Apple Fritters. I do not know what the end of the world means, I do not know the condition I am going to be in, but I do know that an Apple Fritter is the panacea for all ailments. If I just have enough Apple Fritters, I know I can face anything, even the end of the world. It would be nice that the last thing I do before the world ends is savor a delicious Apple Fritter. Actually, I have something much better. But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you (1 Peter 1:25 KJV). I do not know how the world is going to end, but I do know who is really in charge.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at (866) 552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@ att.net. OUT TO PASTORSo this is how the world ends?The birth of JesusBy ETHEL SKPPER Jesus birth is so important, it is the reason for the season. It makes you feel good, and bring people together, both family and friends. Isaiah 9:6 tell us that unto us a child is born and unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called wonderful counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Luke 1:14 and thou shall have joy and gladness and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink, and he shall be lled with the Holy Ghost. And many of the children of Israel shall be turn to the Lord their God. There will be a service in honor of Mother Doris Mackey. She is the oldest known member of the Church of Christ Written in Heaven in our area. One of the oldest cousin of the Rosier Family. Doris Mackey is a woman of wisdom and strength. She opened her doors during the past election and welcomed the public to have a get together for the Democratic Party. Mother Doris Mackey felt good about our president getting back in of ce. Everyone is welcome. On Dec. 23, at 11a.m., at Skipper Temple Church will be the Annual December Birth Month Service. Speaker will be the Rev. Robin Sapp. Happy birthday greetings to Vera Gavin, Willie Skipper, Marie Johnson, Gary Clary, Marie T. Johnson, Willie Harris, Swan Moore, Paul Richard Brown, Antonio Kilpatrick, Merry Christmas and many more birthdays. Let us remember those in need of prayer, and comfort from God only he can give through his Son Jesus. Let us pray for the sick, and shut-in, those in the hospital, the nursing homes, the prisons. Let us pray for each other and love one another.Buckhorn News PHOTO SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe Parish Family

She joined several other members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy to share about the history of the operation of the Gamble Mansion. I felt taken back in time and very honored to be a part of this event, said Kirby. I always gain so much more than any capacity of service. The Gamble Plantation was purchased by Major Robert Gamble, Jr. in 1843 and was operated as a sugar plantation for several years. It is located along the Manatee River about 40 miles south of Tampa. Gambles plantation consisted of 3,500 acres and through a series of hardships, in 1859 Gamble sold it. In 1925, the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) purchased the property and deeded it to the State of Florida. Gamble Mansion, along with the Patten House also on the property, have been restored to their historic periods. The UDC, along with the Florida Park Service, host an annual open house during this time of year. Members of various chapters decorate the Mansion, Patten House, and their archives building in the manner they would have been decorate during their time period. Kirby is District I director of the Florida Division and traveled to Ellenton with her husband Paul to participate in the Open House, as well as attend her of cers meeting. She is also a member and second vice president of the R. Don McLeod Chapter 2469 located in Crawfordville.

Crew Mike Harrison, Norma Hill and Carolyn Treadon met Coxswain Tim Ashley at the fort on Saturday afternoon for what was supposed to be an Aids to Navigation (ATON) patrol before assisting with the boat parade later that evening. As we left the fort and made our way out to the center channel marker, we noticed a rapid decline in temperature and a layer of clouds rolling in. By the time we made it out towards the birds roost we felt it best that we discontinue the ATON patrol and remain closer to the more protected waters. Without our float coats, specially designed coats with the life jacket in the liner, we were concerned that our crew might get too cold with a long night ahead of us. As we returned to the fort for our Captains meeting, we checked the buoys to ensure they were in working order. Approaching a bend in the channel, we noticed a boater had tied up to one of the day markers. This is the time that we get to have a few minutes with someone and educate them about the rules of the road and help them understand the reasons behind the rules. The icing on the cake was watching the young boy on board reel in a sh. He was very proud of his catch! We met up with the second crew of Ray Crews, David Guttman, Chuck Hickman and Coxswain Mark Rosen dockside to prepare for the evening parade. While Tim and Mark were at the Captains meeting, the rest of the crew worked to get both facilities ready for the night. As we prepped, a sailboat motored up and asked about a free vessel exam. What a great opportunity once again to educate someone about the important items to have on board! It was then time to remind ourselves a bit on the importance of good communication. We are trained in Team Coordination Training (TCT) every year. It is a requirement that was put in place to try and prevent dangerous situations from occurring. As we prepared to leave the fort to meet the rest of the crew at Riverside, we did not double-check that everyone was aware of the plan and almost had a confusing situation on our hands. Thankfully it all came together with a simple phone call. With the sun going down, temperatures dropped down quickly and we all changed into our oat coats. Even when not moving fast, it is important to remain warm to prevent hypothermia from setting in. However, as the parade began, the importance of good communication became apparent. As the boats made their rst turn around by Lynns Marina, many were not following the line that had been established. While in daylight this may or may not be a problem, it was very dark and 10 boats were all in a small area. Thankfully, it all worked out! The boats were beautiful and everyone involved seemed to have a good time despite some technical dif culties with lights and generators. We were grateful to be a part of the festivities! As Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident. Teamwork and good communication are two items you dont want to forget on the dock. The Recovery Grim faces met me as we continued our police diver training at my place in Beechwood. The pool had been covered a month earlier, before the large hickory overlooking the deep end had shed its leaves. The deck was six inches deep in fresh crispy fall residue, the distinction between pool and deck lost with the underbrush. We pushed the deck leaves away and prepared to pull the bubble wrap off trying not to spill the overbearing pile of leaves into the pools water. They knew the water would be cold. They knew they would soon be in it and they were not optimistic of the task ahead. There was a crime scene within and they needed to record and recover evidence. Joerg Hess quickly deployed Deep Tracker, a new and inexpensive Remotely Operated Vehicle or ROV for short, attached to the surface by way of an umbilical. This colorful little droid quickly scampered around the deep end of the pool and found the body in no time at all. Robots like this are often seen as toys by police departments because they are controlled by game consoles, their color cameras displayed through glasses and just look like too much fun. The closest relative to the Deep Tracker costs in the upper $25,000 so the expense has been signi cant. At just $4,000, or half the cost of out tting another police diver, this creature caught our attention at DEMA, and we brought it home for a visit. Those that have visited the Center recently saw the granddaddy droid in the back that occupies 30 times the space, and requires a forklift to move. One person carries the Deep Tracker and all its support features in a foot-cubed plastic box. Now folks had to get in the water to verify what the droid so quickly found and solve the pending case. New dry suits were pulled over thermal protection against the 65 degree water. Soon a plan was set in place to record the crime scene the old fashioned way, by divers in situ (in the water at the site). After some preliminary steps, the rst team came back to report the body was facing east, appeared to be recently deceased and no other evidence could be found in the area. Everyone agreed to wait until the body was recovered before making positive ID. Witness reports con rmed that damage in the vicinity of the pool had caused the residing dog great unrest, the garden was torn up and as recently as the night before, an intruder was seen lurking near the pool gate. A body recovery shroud was deployed and with great care what was documented within the rst few minutes of our arrival, and validated by divers, was removed to the shallow end and carefully lifted to the pool deck. Everyone agreed, it was a rather large armadillo, remarkably preserved but very dead. Gaining access to the pool deck through the rails that surround it, this armadillo did not distinguish between the solid deck and the collapsing pool cover because of the leaf overburden. Once on the cover, there was little chance of recovery, its body slipping between the cover and the pool in what could best be described as leaf quicksand. Everyone agreed it could have been a human, considering the circumstances. Wakulla Sheriffs Dive Team with the ROV. Norma Hill, Mike Harrison and Tim Ashley preparing for the St. Marks boat parade.

Nurture a Healthy Identity Theft Mindset. Know it can happen to you. Law enforcement takes calls from people who believed they couldnt become a victim of identity theft. Their reasons: I dont use credit; I shred everything; I have bad credit; Everythings in my spouses name; and so on. The fact is anyone can become a victim and everyone needs to take steps to reduce their risk. 2. Help Yourself to Strong Passwords. Avoid the simple, widely-used choices for passwords. , , and \224 were the Top Three most common passwords found when 32 million passwords exposed by a social network hack were analyzed. The other passwords in the list of the Top Ten were: iloveyou, princess, rockyou, , , and abc123. 3. The Why Behind the Tip. Know when account statements arrive, and check them when they are received. If a statement doesnt arrive as usual, it may mean that someone has called the nancial institution involved, posed as you, changed the address on the account, and requested a new card. Call your nancial institution to inquire about any late statements; ask if changes to the account were made recently. Reconcile bank and credit card statements monthly. Call the nancial institution that issued the card if you do not receive the account statement when expected. If you nd unauthorized charges, dispute them with the nancial institution, not the merchant. You would call the merchant only if you are not sure whether or not you authorized the charge. 4. Take Steps to Secure Your Mobile Apps. If your mobile device is lost or stolen, react quickly to minimize damage caused by unauthorized access to information on the device. Install a program that allows you to remotely wipe data from the device if it is lost or stolen. 5. Beware of IRS-Themed Scams. Do not respond to e-mail messages that appear to be from the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS does not send taxpayers unsolicited e-mails about their tax accounts nor does it request detailed personal information through e-mail.5 tips to protect against identity theft HARRISON BAIL BONDS850-926-2299Franklin County 850-670-3333Locally Owned & Operated by Mike Harrison Since 1995 3039 Crawfordville Hwy., Crawfordville www.wakullabailbonds.comA-AAA Commercial Residential & Mobile Homes Repairs Sales Service All Makes and Models(850) 926-3546LIC. #RA0062516 rr s Locally Owned and Operated Since 1991 Open 9-5 Closed Sun. & Wed.Mon.

Santas sleigh has been packed for days and he is half way through rechecking his naughty and nice list. Children everywhere are counting the hours and are, basic inclinations notwithstanding, on their very best behavior. Many things have changed about the way the holiday is celebrated. Black Friday is giving way to cyber Monday. Gift cards are conveniently replacing hours of pillaging through retail establishment for the right gift in the perfect color. Fathers have ceased to spend long nights with strong coffee and a some assembly required doll house in 627 small pieces. One tradition which has not changed for centuries is a kiss under the mistletoe. This parasitic plant commonly found growing in Wakulla County hardwood trees has a long and storied history in religion, folklore and pagan rites across several continents. Mistletoe plants can grow in a variety of local hardwood trees, most typically in pecans and oaks. Across its range mistletoe can be hosted by more than 200 different shrubs and trees. This plants sprouts are equipped to utilize available nutrients and water until they are rmly attached to a host which will do most of the work for them. Classified as hemiparasites, mistletoe does engage in some photosynthesis while deriving most of its sustenance from the host plant. Mistletoe is easy to spot in the tops of trees that are shedding their leaves in autumn. The growth position in the tree provides mistletoe with several advantages. Birds are primarily responsible for spreading mistletoe seed, and the plants are an attractive source of food during the sparse winter months. The plants location in the top of the tree is easily visible to birds and a safe location for the birds to dine. The growth clusters in the top of the tree also minimize the possibility the rather brittle, delicate plants will be damaged by larger animals looking for a meal. Stalks of mistletoe are easily broken with minimum effort. As a parasite, heavy infestations of mistletoe are an indication of a tree in decline. The trees defenses are helpless against mistletoes roots which penetrate the bark and rob needed nutrients. Because of its ability to produce fruit and seed in the winter months and other unique qualities, a number of early cultures credited mistletoe with mystical powers. The early residents of the Scandinavia had an intricate sacred soap opera revolving around the misuse of mistletoe involving jealousy, envy, and murder. Even a divine sword was named after the parasitic plant. The citizens of the Roman Empire were more inclined to consider mistletoe in the pharmaceutical line. The plant could be considered a treatment for a variety of conditions, depending on the physician who was making the diagnosis. Kissing under the mistletoe was rst noted in the early 1500s, no doubt by a watchful parent keeping a sharp eye on their daughter. Not surprisingly, the custom caught on and has remained popular for centuries.

Young mistletoe shown established in the bark of the host tree. Please Recycle By MELINDA MYERSGardening expertReduce stress and enhance your familys enjoyment this season by increasing the bene ts of holiday dcor and gifts and by taking a few shortcuts to properly care for holiday trees and plants. 1. Keep your Christmas tree looking its best by keeping the tree stand filled with water. Make this a daily chore for someone trying to stay on Santas nice list. Dont worry if good help is hard to nd. Purchase or make your own self-watering device. Use a decorative tin or plastic bucket set in a box and wrapped to hide its presence. Fill it with water and run a piece of plastic tubing from the bucket to the tree stand. Weight each end of the tubing, so it stays at the bottom of the reservoir. Test before leaving town to make sure it is in working order. 2. Add some holiday plants this year. Many studies have shown that indoor plants can boost mood levels, reduce fatigue and even lower stress. Plus, its easy to extend the life of your holiday plants. Place them in a cool bright location away from drafts of hot or cold air. Water thoroughly and often enough to keep the soil moist. Pour off any excess water that collects in the saucer, basket or foil wrap to prevent root rot. 3. Use nature-inspired decorations that provide enjoyment throughout the holiday season and beyond. Colorful stems, white painted allium seed heads and wooden stars can add beauty throughout the holidays and much of the year. Red wood wreaths are festive enough for the holidays and timeless enough to leave hanging on your wall year round. Luminaries can be used to light the entrance to your home or the path to your outdoor living space during warmer months. 4. Spruce up indoor plants with a few holiday flowers, spangles and lights. Place a few cut owers in oral picks lled with water. Place these in one or more of your houseplants for some seasonal color. Or add one of the miniature poinsettias, kalanchoes or cyclamen to a large planter. Simply sink the owering plant, pot and all, into your houseplant container. Replace the small owering plants as they fade or the seasons change. Add colorful stems, ribbons and winter branch lights to your houseplants and planters for a bit of seasonal sparkle. Branch lights are also a festive way to light an entrance, bathroom, or other out of the way space. Look for lights with timers to extend the life of the batteries and reduce your workload. 5. Increase value and extend enjoyment with gifts that give twice. A tabletop spruce tree, perfect for any size home can add greenery and fragrance long past the holidays. And, once the weather is suitable for planting, move your tree into the garden throughout the coming year.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe families started lining up early Saturday morning at the community center. There were 210 families picking up donations of goods given by the community and picking up a frozen turkey and other food from Farmshare. Later in the week, another 42 families on the waiting list were assisted by Operation Santa. The force behind this effort was Wakulla Coalition for Youths Bruce Ashley and Gail Campbell. On Saturday, watching the people stream through the community center aided by volunteers or elves, as they were called, Campbell and Ashley noted that almost 5,000 people live in poverty in Wakulla County. Only 2 to 3 percent of those people are being helped by this event, Ashley noted. For many of these people, just getting by, theres just not money left at the end of the month for Christmas, Campbell said. This doesnt x the problem, she added. But Ashley noted it is the largest single effort of the year to help local families in need coordinated through the youth coalition, with its different members referring families in need. The need is growing every year, Ashley said. Campbell told the story of a woman who came by the community center and dropped off a donation of $1,000 in cash and refused to give her name. The woman said she wanted to help out and was glad she could, and quoted a Joan Baez song, There but for fortune go I.

A couple of days after the event, Ashley noted that, shortly after the announcement that Operation Santa would be accepting donations, a family donated their furniture and other household items for the cause. The family had to leave the area, he said, and they left behind everything that wouldnt t in the car and gave it to Operation Santa. Ashley also said that among the many donations received was one for $1,500 for Ken Voland and his wife. Voland was the treasurer of Seafarers Chapel and donated every year. Voland recently passed away, Ashley said. Several people donated in excess of $1,000, Ashley said. There was a real concentrated effort over the last few weeks, including organizations that adopted whole families, he said. Theres a lot of heart in our county for others.OPERATION SANTA A volunteer, left, checks with Gail Campbell. Donated items for a family. A sign at the community center. Above and below, volunteers gather up donated items for families at the community center.
