The change in status came after the yearly evaluation, the Section Eight Management Assessment Program, was performed by HUD and Wakulla County scored 100 points out of a possible 135, or 74 percent. The last evaluation on Jan. 26, 2012, revealed a SEMAP score of 22 percent, said Esrone McDaniels, assistant director of the Community Services Division of Meridian Community Services Group, the company who administers the Section 8 program for the county. Coming from a 22 percent to a 74 percent assessment score in the matter of a year, I think its a tremendous accomplishment, McDaniels said. Meridian began administering Section 8 in March 2011 after the Wakulla County Commission decided to outsource this program because of numerous issues within the housing department, including the troubled designation and high turnover of program coordinators. Since that time, Meridian has assessed the program and has been rebuilding it to ensure it is being handled properly. There were some things that were not being done and there were other things that were not being done correctly, McDaniels said. We pride ourselves on making sure its done right. Meridian actually began providing interim services to the county in February 2011 for this program after the countys coordinator was arrested and charged with 30 counts in Leon County. Continued on Page 3Remembering Kings legacy By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netElder Dominique Rollins of Mount Trial Primitive Baptist Church gave an impassioned speech on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. And Rollins stressed Kings path of non-violent resistance, noting that King kept to non-violence even when given provocation. Rollins quoted Proverbs, that death and life are in the power of the tongue and he urged the crowd to think of the violence of words. Its not just violence with guns, but of the tongue, he said. More than 50 people turned out for the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration on Monday, Jan. 21, at Hudson Park, an annual celebration sponsored by the Wakulla County Christian Coalition. Elder Alfred Nelson, prior to the blessing of the food, gave an impromptu remembrance of being one of the rst of a handful of black students at a newly integrated Crawfordville School. And remembered being on the school bus in April 1968 and heard that King had been assassinated, but as a child didnt understand the signi cance. There was music from the Miracle Deliverance Temple Church Praise Team, and youth choirs from Mount Trial, Mount Olive and Little Salem Primitive Baptist churches. Deshea and Derisha Jones spoke on the signi cance of the Martin Luther King Day of Service. County Commissioner Dr. Howard Kessler read selections from Kings Letter from a Birmingham Jail. Other local politicians at the event included Commissioner Ralph Thomas, and former Commissioners George Green and Ed Brimner.PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDENElder Dominique Rollins urges the crowd to follow Martin Luther King Jr.s path of non-violence.Fire in Medart destroys mobile homeMC Herb Donaldson helps Derisha Jones with some of the words in her speech on MLK Service Day.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netBob Ballard, the new director of Tallahassee Community Colleges Wakulla Environmental Institute, told members of the Chamber last week that he expects TCC will close on the property on April 1, and he anticipates breaking ground on the facility within 30 days of that. Ballard added that he wants the doors to be open to the public within a year and the whole campus to be substantially completed in 10 years. Ballard made the comments at the Wakulla Chamber of Commerces Installation Banquet on Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Senior Center. Ballard also unveiled a rendering of the main classroom which will be built in a Florida Cracker style with porches and the latest green technology. TCC recently announced plans to purchase a 158acre site south of Crawfordville not far from Wakulla Middle School to create an environmental institute to offer programs in water quality, natural resource management and environmental monitoring. There would also be degree programs for Hospitality and Tourism Management, as well as aquaculture and agribusiness. The facility will be a game changer for Wakulla, Ballard said.

Participants could take home a potted tree and seedlings, visit the different booths at the event, and listen to music. Neighbors Syndey Grif n and Ellen Mahnke decided to stop by the festival to check out the various arts and craft vendors and also pick out one of two trees they can plot at their homes. Its neat, Grif n said of the tree giveaway. Festival participants could chose from red bud, dogwood, Chickasaw plum, red maple, tulip poplar, shumard oak, myrtle oak, eastern hophornbeam, mockernut hickory and winged elm. Smaller quantities of Ogeechee tupelo, southern red oak, turkey oak, basket oak, sugarberry and bald cypress were also available.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 24, 2013 Page 3 PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. Continued from Page 1 These charges related to her previous employment with the Tallahassee Housing Authority where she served as case manager and family self-suf ciency coordinator. The county then entered into a contract with Meridian to administer these services. Staff and Meridian have worked diligently on cleaning up the Section 8 program and are very glad that we can now put this behind us and move forward, said County Administrator David Edwards. In the current SEMAP report, there are four indicators out of the 14 that received a score of zero. Several of these indicators related to Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspections, McDaniels said. When Meridian took over the program, the HQS inspections were not done, he said. Therefore, we took on a massive effort to get those inspections done and completed. The improved process has been implemented since the review was performed and McDaniels was con dent that if the scoring happened today, there would be no more zeroes. The other indicator, Timely Annual Reexaminations, had the same issue. Annual re-exams were not up to date and must be conducted at least once a year, McDaniels said. All re-exams have been conducted and that is no longer an issue. Getting a standard performance rating for this program took hard work from Meridian staff, county staff and help from HUD, McDaniels said. That enabled us to get it done, he said. They will now be working on obtaining a high ranking status, which will position the county to receive additional funding from HUD for the program, he said. Falling in line with getting the program back on track, the waiting list for Section 8 has been opened. The last time the waiting list was opened was in 2008. McDaniels said the waiting list of applicants should be purged every two years and narrowed down to eligible participants. When Meridian took over, 181 people were on the list. That was whittled down to 55. Those people on the waiting list were served and now they are re-establishing the list. Families whose household income does not exceed 50 percent of the area median income can apply for assistance. For a family of two that income level is $26,350 and a family of fours income must not exceed $32,900. Applications must be received before 5 p.m. on Feb. 23. Preference will be given to veterans, elderly, the disabled and working families. We want the families to bring something to the table, McDaniels said of those with employment. Once the applications are evaluated, 150 applicants will be chosen for the waiting list based on a lottery system. After that, the preferences will be taken into account. McDaniels said they will be able to serve at least 10 to 15 families from that list. Applications are available at the county administration of ce, 3093 Crawfordville Highway, or online at www. mywakulla.com. Completed applications must be mailed to Meridian Community Services Group Inc., P.O. Box 13408, Tallahassee, FL 32317.

A newcomers view of Wakulla County HOME COUNTRYREADERS WRITE:Wakulla Public Safety does a good job Go back to a weekly shing reportConservation gets kicked to the curbKessler should be commended for e ortSpecial winter mornings Editor, The News: In this day and age, our government is over owing with elected of cials who will say and do anything to get elected. Once elected, most think nothing of reneging when the time comes for the hard work of ful lling their commitments, thinking the citizens will forget before the next election rolls around. Thats precisely why I was both saddened and incensed by a Letter to the Editor (Lets start over on the public service tax, Jan. 17). It was written by a friend and mentor, which made it especially frustrating. Statements were made that Commissioner Howard Kesslers efforts to reduce the Public Service Tax (PST) by a mere 2 percent were somehow seen as in-yourface politics and that nothing is going to be shoved down anyones throat. These were hardly words that might help prevent people get[ting] more entrenched and more divided, which ironically I truly believe was the genuine intent of that letter. Kesslers integrity made him do exactly what he always does, work as hard as humanly possible for the citizens of Wakulla County. He made a promise and followed through on that promise a promise that helped get him elected by the citizens of Wakulla. Had he done anything less, hed be just another run-of-the-mill politician rather than a true champion for greater good and opponent of special interests. Im sure Kessler spent countless hours, as he always does, preparing the intricate details of how to reduce our taxes and streamline expenditures. Unfortunately, he wasnt even given the common courtesy to present his research. The other four commissioners wouldnt second his motion in order to allow a discussion on tax reduction, and serving to thwart citizens from speaking publicly on the item. This was as wrong as wrong can be and the ugliest of ugly politics. It was a not just a slap to Kesslers face, but a slap to the faces of our Founding Fathers and the citizens of Wakulla. I absolutely believe we must move forward from here, but we should not forget who took the high road and who took the low road. Steven Fults Ochlockonee BayBy REV. DR. BETSY GOEHRIG My husband Kevin and I have been visiting our children in Crawfordville for years. They attended FSU, liked the area, and never left. I never dreamed that one day, I, too, would come to live here. We have just moved to Crawfordville from Kentucky last month to be near our children and grandbabies. And I have found a lot in Wakulla County that I really like. We are very happy to be here! First, I am impressed by the people. Everyone weve met has been so gracious and hospitable from day one. When I returned the moving truck, the U-Haul manager took time to walk me around the plaza and introduce me to various business people. The folks at the county clerks of ce were helpful in getting our drivers licenses and car tags. People in stores, businesses and the credit union have all gone out of their way to assist. When we stopped by Workforce Plus, the staff was very helpful in showing us what tools and resources were available for professionals seeking jobs in the area. Kevin and I have visited Rotary here and in Tallahassee, where everyone has been so welcoming, making us feel right at home. Churches weve attended have been so warm and personal. Neighbors have stopped by to chat, welcome us to the neighborhood, and even brought us cookies. What a great community! Second, we are impressed with the schools. While we have grown children here, we also have a daughter in middle school. The quality of the schools was an important factor in determining where we moved. We preferred Wakulla County because of the excellent A-graded schools. We emailed the principal and guidance counselors of Wakulla Middle School before we came, to let them know we would have a new student transferring into the school in the middle of a term. They welcomed our daughter, looked at her courses and interests, and did a great job in helping her feel comfortable in a whole new academic environment and helping her become acclimated into the student body. Because they made the transition as smooth as possible, our daughter is doing great in her new school. Third, we love the nature. Having lived in Kentucky with beautiful farms and rolling hills, we love being around green grass, beautiful trees and natural beauty. We have also previously lived in other parts of Florida where the population has boomed, green space has gotten gobbled up into one subdivision and strip mall after another, and where the ethos of the neighborhoods and communities changed. We love the natural beauty of Wakulla County and the emphasis on the protection of these valuable areas. The focus on the environment and eco-tourism can help bring jobs and new amenities to the area, while maintaining the natural beauty by which we are surrounded. Its great to be in a place with fresh air, surrounded by forests and wildlife, and near the beach! Fourth, we enjoy the activities and services. In addition to going to Rotary, church and family activities, we have begun to nd other activities in the community. We have been going to one of the parks for soccer games, as one of our grandchildren is on a soccer team, and its been fun meeting other families there. We are looking forward to the Rotary Valentine Celebration parade and activities at Hudson Park on Saturday, Feb. 9. Weve noticed various services and groups in the community that help others. We are truly grateful that God and family have brought us to this special place, Crawfordville in Wakulla County, which we now lovingly call home!Rev. Dr. Betsy Goehrig is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), having served as pastor, associate regional minister, police chaplain and hospice chaplain. Editor, The News: My wife and I recently had an out-of-control burn on our property. A call to public safety resulted in a swift response by the Wakualla County Sheriffs Of ce and Fire Department. We couldnt be more pleased with the professionalism and quick work of these agencies. The fire department even came back later to make sure the fire was still out and, unsolicited, put back the fence which had to be taken down to get at the re. In this day and time when a few say we dont need no stinkin government, we would argue to the contrary. Keep up the good work, Wakulla County Public Safety. We have always and will continue to support you. Sincerely, David and Karen Murrell Crawfordville Editor, The News: The purpose of this message is to request that the weekly shing reports be re-established. I sure do miss the weekly update and have come to depend on these reports and planned my trips on the water around them. I can understand a writer not wanting to devote the time to produce a weekly report. If that is the reason for not having a weekly update, then hopefully one or more of the other local guides would enjoy the publicity and opportunity of putting their name before your readership each week. Thanks, George Sweeney sweenem@embarqmail.com By SLIM RANDLESWhy are winter mornings so heartbreakingly special? Theyre sure cold, at least around here. And with the snow youd think theyd be white too. But they arent, are they? In the morning there is a tinge, a golden no a yellowish cast to the snow, the sky, and the trees. It is more like those catalog pictures of yellow diamonds. You know the diamonds we dont really want because the ladies dont want anything but the clear diamonds, but the ones that look more interesting because theres some color there? If men bought diamonds for themselves, wed probably go for the yellow ones, because theyd remind us, even in the broiling heat of summer, that a morning in January has a yellowdiamond cast to it. And the evenings are special, too. When the sun starts to set, the snow and the sky and the trees take on that glow that is a combination of orange and pink. Its the singular color of winter dusk and makes us want to paint the walls of a cabin that color to remind us of the endings of winter days. Its the color thats so pretty we dont even talk about it with other people because it would sound kinda silly. In Alaska, they call it alpenglow. Its as good a name as any. Isnt it strange how these days that are supposed to be white and gray and dull and depressing are still able to give us these two delicious colors we can tuck away in our memories and trot out when we need them? Lets hope we can give each other special little memories this month that we can use when we need them, too. Seems like the right thing to do.Read free samples of Slims books at www. slimrandles.com. By JOHN CRABTREECenter for Rural AffairsOn Jan. 1, Congress passed the scal cliff legislation that included a ninemonth extension of the farm bill that slashes investment in the future of family farms, ranches and small town America. However, the scal cliff farm bill extension failed to x a mistake included in spending legislation back in the beginning of October that prevented USDA from conducting a 2013 farmer and rancher sign-up for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP). The CSP rewards farmers, ranchers and foresters for existing conservation on working lands as well as for the adoption of additional conservation measures that provide environmental bene ts beyond the farm or ranch such as incentives for practices that preserve clean water, promote better soil management, improve habitat and energy ef ciency, and provide other natural resource bene ts. Unfortunately, since the farm bill extension included in the scal cliff bill failed to address the funding problem, the 2013 CSP sign-up must await action later this year, meaning thousands of farmers and ranchers across the country who were considering applying for CSP got kicked to the curb. While the Center for Rural Affairs works with Congress to x their mistake with the program, we encourage producers to contact our Helpline call (402) 687-2100 and ask for the Farm Bill Helpline to nd out whether they have been impacted by the failure to x this problem and join us in advocating for the program.John Crabtree can be contacted at johnc@cfra.org. The Center for Rural Affairs was formed by rural Nebraskans concerned about family farms and rural communities, and works to strengthen small businesses, family farms and ranches, and rural communities.

Rick Scott this week broke with many in his own party by saying some recent Republicanbacked election changes should be reversed to give voters more time to cast ballots. Following an election mired by hours-long lines in certain precincts, Scott said local election supervisors need more flexibility to expand early voting hours and venues in an effort to make every potential vote count. Scotts comments came as lawmakers returned to Tallahassee and began looking at several major issues, from what went wrong on Election Day to nding ways to enhance safety for students following the fatal shooting of 20 grade-school children and six adults in a Connecticut school last month. Meanwhile this week, a Florida Supreme Court decision upheld a Scottbacked initiative to require workers in the Florida Retirement System to pay into to their pension plans, a ruling that will affect hundreds of thousands of teachers, state and local employees. And as President Barack Obama announced plans to push for gun control measures, Floridas governor said he wont push for any legislation to make it more dif cult to own a gun, and the Senate president said he didnt expect that debate to be held this year in the Legislature, but left to Washington. SCOTT: PUT THE EARLY VOTING BACK Two years after signing an elections bill that critics said was politically inspired to reduce voting by Democrats, Gov. Rick Scott said this week the change should be reversed. Elections supervisors should have the authority to give voters up to 14 days before Election Day, Scott said this week. The governor also said shorter ballots would help alleviate the long lines that clogged some precincts in the last general election, and that supervisors should have more exibility in setting up early voting. All of that would, presumably, make it easier for people to vote which was the argument the losers made when they tried to persuade Republicans not to reduce the opportunities to vote in the rst place. Scotts announcement breaks with many in his own party who backed the voting restrictions as a way to ght fraud. Scott also said the early voting period should once again include the Sunday before Election Day, an option used by many black churches to get out the vote and seen by most as an advantage for Democrats. Our ultimate goal must be to restore Floridians confidence in our election system, Scott said. FRS CHANGES OK In a victory for Republican legislative leaders (and also for Scott), a divided Florida Supreme Court this week upheld a 2011 law that requires government workers to chip in 3 percent of their salaries to help fund their own retirement accounts. In a 4-3 decision, the high court overturned a Leon County circuit judge who ruled the law violated the constitutional rights of government workers hired before July 1, 2011, the day the law took effect. Legislative leaders had feared that a loss at the Supreme Court would blow a $1 billion hole in the state budget. Backers of the contribution said the ruling allows the state to save money and offer retirement plans more similar to business in the private sector. Critics, including a coalition of unions led by the Florida Education Association, characterized the employee contributions as a hidden tax on government employees, many of whom have not seen a raise in several years. Had the court sided with the unions, the state would have been on the hook for about $1 billion in contributions that have already been collected. Echoing the sentiment of other supporters, Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron said government employees should help pay for their retirement packages, as private-sector workers do. I think that our constituents want us to live by the same rules that exist in their workplace, said Negron, R-Stuart. We can now move forward with crafting our budget. The case primarily centered on whether a 1974 retirement law created contractual rights that shielded public employees from having to contribute money into the pension system. The court said no. The preservation of rights statute was not intended to bind future legislatures from prospectively altering bene ts for future service performed by all members of the FRS, Justice Jorge Labara wrote for the majority. ETHICS PROPOSALS ON FRONT BURNER Sen. Jack Latvala, chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee, said this week he expects an ethics bill to go to the full Senate during the rst week of the 2013 legislative session in March. The bill appears likely to deal with several issues, including bolstering penalties for of cials who do not le nancial-disclosure forms, reining in lawmakers use of political committees to pay for meals and other personal expenses, and cracking down on voting con icts of interest. It also may seek to make it harder for former legislators to lobby after their service. The bill may also give the Florida Commission on Ethics the power to undertake investigations after receiving referrals from the governors of ce, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, state attorneys or federal prosecutors. SCHOOL SAFETY In the wake of the December school shootings in Newtown, Conn., lawmakers appear serious about school-safety changes theyre already talking about how much it might cost. Florida now spends about $70 million on school security. Putting a cop in each elementary school might cost more than $100 million, school district representatives estimate. A Senate panel this week discussed ways to standardize cost-sharing of school resource of- cers. In some counties, local sheriffs are paying the bulk of providing law enforcement officers in schools. In other counties they pay little or nothing. Scott, though, says he has no plans to push lawmakers to enact any gun control legislation this session. Gov. Scott supports the second amendment, a statement from his of- ce said this week. He will listen to ideas about improving school safety during the legislative session, but he continues to support the second amendment and is not proposing any gun law changes. On Friday, Senate President Don Gaetz said he didnt think state lawmakers w ere likely to go there on their own, either. In an interview with the Tampa Bay Times editorial Board, Gaetz said while he favors background checks on all gun purchases, he doesnt think any changes to gun laws will come up in Tallahassee. Congress is going to take that up, Gaetz, RNiceville, said. Let them have that debate. STORY OF THE WEEK: Two years after signing a new law reducing early voting, Gov. Rick Scott does an about face and calls for extending the number of days Florida voters can go to the polls early. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: I just dont quite understand how someone can be a make-believe cop, pursue my son who had every right to be in that neighborhood, chase him, get in a confrontation with him, shoot and kill him and not be arrested. Something has to be done. Sybrina Fulton in reference to the states Stand Your Ground law, and the delay before the arrest of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of her son, Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer has now been charged with murder, but is expected to claim self defense under Floridas Stand Your Ground doctrine. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 24, 2013 Page 5WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government) Let my people vote (early and in more places) Making the Gift In Memory or Honor ofBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Charles AllenBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Mary Della AmanBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Ervin AmmonsBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Arthur AndersonBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Betty Arban Donna Kerce Cary ArdBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Kenneth AttridgeBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Michael BallardBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Bettye BarkleyBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Eleanor BealBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Catherine BenadellaBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Jeffrey BlountBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Gary BostwickBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Polly BourgeoisBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Marshall BradfordJesse & France Quigg & Alex Browne Sarah & Emerson BrowneBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Aarone BryantBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Dorothy BullBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel William BurkeBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Daniel CalhounBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Bradham CarrawayBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Beulah CarrollBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel Walter Carroll Larry & Sue Bruce Mary Lou Gaby CarterBevis Funeral Home-Harvey-Young Chapel David D.

(850) 926-7102 By JAMES L. SNYDERPersonally, I sure will be glad when January is over. If confession is good for the soul, then let me have a good soul cleansing and confess that January is not my favorite month of the year. At the beginning of each year, a certain resident in our home begins acting like an angel and starts harping about a diet. But, not just a diet. I could take that, I think. Rather, my diet. What my diet has to do with her is a question I have yet to ask. One of my New Years resolutions is to ask no question I do not want to hear the answer. Believe me when I say ignorance is bliss. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is a health nut, whereas, I am just a plain nut with lots of fudge icing on the top. As nuts are concerned, I prefer nuts with fudge icing. Every year right after Christmas and before the New Year comes in, my wife and I have this conversation about the upcoming diet. I need to correct myself here. When I use the word conversation, I probably should use the word monologue. When it comes to diets, I have absolutely nothing to say. My wife on the other hand, has plenty to say and when she is saying it to me, she holds nothing back. When it comes to diets and dieting, I have my own ideas about the whole matter. I do not see myself as fat, just post-thin. For arguments sake, lets say I am fat. I take refuge in the Bible along this line, which says, All the fat is the Lords (Leviticus 4:16b KJV). If I was to argue with my wife, which I promise you I am not going to, I could lay all of the blame about my being post-thin on her. I have pictures to prove my point. Before we got married, I was very thin. Now look at me! I dont have to draw a picture for you, do I? Along this line of diets, I think I am doing rather well. I have come up with ideas that have made me quite comfortable along this line. Last week I bought a dress shirt and brought it home. When I tried it on it was three sizes too big for me making me look rather thin. I love that shirt. That shirt was made for people like me. Every time I wear that shirt in public somebody usually says, You mustve lost a lot of weight. I just smile. I have other shirts in my closet that have brought me no end of grief. Here is what I want to know. Why do my shirts get thin but I dont? After all, we go to the same places and eat at the same restaurants. There is something here I believe I am missing! Whenever I am off on a trip somewhere my wife always says just as I leave, Make sure that you watch what you eat while youre away. I am delighted to report to her or anybody else who will listen that I always watch what I eat. After all, I would hate to take a bite of broccoli by mistake. Therefore, I watch every bite I eat to make sure it is as delicious as possible. My wife is always encouraging me to eat more fruit. I believe fruit is a matter of personal opinion and preference. My wife believes that bananas are fruit. I, on the other hand, believe that a banana split is fruit. My wife has the idea that an Apple a day keeps the doctor away. I have a different slant on that idea. I believe an Apple Fritter a day keeps everybody away. When it comes to salads, my wife is the crowned queen of salads. She has a golden touch when it comes to making salads. If I am not careful, she will serve me a salad three times a day. Another thing I need to watch out for with her salads. Occasionally, she will try to slip in some form of broccoli. For some unknown reason she believes broccoli is the panacea for all ills nutritionally. As diets come and go, my diets usually go without leaving a trace behind them. Years ago, I got serious about a diet and was determined to lose 25 pounds of ugly fat. Much to my chagrin, I lost the other fat instead. Now look at me! The diet phase is beginning to run its course as we come to the close of January. Towards the end of January, my lovely bride begins thinking of Valentines Day. For me, whatever gets her attention off my diet is good news any day of the week. I suppose it is true what people say that you are what you eat. I further suppose that it is important to eat the right things. Not only is that true physically but also spiritually. The Bible has something to say about this. As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby (1 Peter 2:1 KJV). Nothing is more important in my daily routine than feasting on the Word of God. I may not do very well on my physical diet, but I do take special care about my spiritual diet.Rev. James L.

OUT TO PASTORMy New Years diet fits me to a T-shirtSpecial to The NewsThe fth annual Jesus River Festival is scheduled for Saturday, March 9 in Myron B. Hodges City Park located in Sopchoppy. The outdoor music event will start at noon and run until dark. This music festival will host a list of talented Christian musicians, speakers, dancers and performers appealing to all ages and a variety of music styles. The Jesus River Festival was started by a group of Wakulla County Christians from various churches. Their intention was to gather their families for a day of music and fellowship in a casual outdoor setting. The Sopchoppy River runs south towards the Gulf of Mexico through the citys park and makes for an ideal setting for an afternoon of relaxed music listening. Planners wanted to draw from the areas local musical talent and invite committed Christians to share with the community the good news of Jesus Christs power to transform lives. This is a multi-denominational, community worship experience, and it just keeps getting better, said Nathan Lewis, a member of the planning committee. Several hundred individuals attended last years event, and we were very pleased with the turnout and support. Wave 94, a local Christian radio station and long time supporter of the festival, is expected to return to visit with fans and friends. Many churches and businesses were involved in making the festival a success. Those attending the festival will be served complimentary grilled burgers, hot dogs, chips and drinks. Booth spaces for local charities, churches and ministries to inform the public of their services will be available. Special ministries for children will take place throughout the day. Attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods for the local food bank. Donations are welcomed but not mandatory. Wakulla One, a group of churches, individuals and ministries united to support Christ-centered events in Wakulla County, will sponsor the event this year. The organization will also host a night of fellowship and prayer before the festival on Friday, March 8, at 7 p.m. in the same park. All Wakulla Christians are encouraged to come and pray for Gods presence and blessings. For more information visit: www.

Every quarter, the Lions of Zone 6 meet to learn from each other and from their zone chair. Davis discussed customary and necessary duties of officers and directors, and then asked members from each club to discuss their yearly programs and projects. Zone 6 is part of district 35-L, which has 14 zones. Our Zone includes clubs from Tallahassee, Jefferson County, Carrabelle and Crawfordville and Sopchoppy. There are 82 clubs in our District. Presidents Anne Davis from Tallahassee, Elaine Herndon from Sopchoppy, Marc Dickieson from Crawfordville and William Snyder from Carrabelle, as well as other members, attended this meeting. While each Lions Club raises funds to assist local citizens in seeing better and in preserving their eyesight, every club has its own way of raising funds and helping the community. Getting together on a regular basis, club members can learn of other clubs success stories. The Crawfordville Lions participated in the Peace Poster contest, as did the Sopchoppy Lions. Both middle schools had the opportunity to enter and send their winning posters to the next level. Crawfordville Lions helped with Operation Santa, and participated in the Riversprings Middle School Fall Festival. Crawfordville Lions mentored students. They read books to schoolchildren. They learned about diabetes training, so they can help residents make good food and living choices. In Sopchoppy, we raise funds for eye exams. Like most Lions, we have brooms of several shapes to offer for donations. We collect toners for recycling. If anyone wants to get rid of used toner cartridges, call Jesse Quigg at 962-3711, Franklin Roberts at 962-4923, or Richard Harden at 274-3703. Sight Chair Lion Warren Harden reported that Sopchoppy Lions received two applications for eyesight exams this month; one an 11-year-old, and one a 54-year-old. We received a thank you letter for a pair of glasses. The glasses allowed the recipient to return to work, because he could see again. Lion Marshall Catoe spearheaded our Peace Poster Contest at Wakulla Middle School. The Lions recently held a sh fry to raise funds. Lion Randy Anderson spoke of gift cards for groceries given at Christmastime to local families in need. The Carrabelle Club held a duck race and a Boston Butt Roast to raise funds. They donated $1,000 to their Senior Center, hams to their Food Bank, and 22 turkeys at Christmastime. Tallahassee Lions recycle printer cartridges. They held a chili special to help support National Guard veterans at FSU. They gave away pork butts at Christmas. They provide eyeglass cases for those in need. But the nicest story I heard was the one where Tallahassee Lions heard of an 8-year-old who wrote to Santa. Instead of an I-Pod or video games, instead of name-brand clothing or cell phones, this child simply asked that her family have food. Just food. They found out that the uncle of this child walked a long distance once a month and physically toted as much food as he could carry back to the family. And that was all they had to eat for the month. They reached into their own pockets to give plenty of money for food, and then reached again to purchase a bicycle with three wheels, a horn and a mirror so that the uncle could travel back and forth to the grocery store. After we heard this story, there was complete silence in the room. A Lion cleared his throat and said, Thats why we are Lions. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSZone Chairperson Anne Davis and Sopchoppy Lion President Elaine Herndon The winner of the best decorated house in Panacea during Christmastime was 103 Frances Avenue, which belongs to Wes Byrd. More than 8,000 lights were used for the decorations. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Best decorated house in PanaceaBy MICHELLE KIRBYSpecial to The NewsMembers of the R.

Chapter members dressed in their 1860s period clothing walked the halls humming and singing holiday carols, as well as stopped into various residents rooms as well as the lounge to spread holiday cheer. For even a few seconds, many would change their whole countenance upon seeing us, said Second Vice President Michelle Kirby. I always get much more than any service I render.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 24, 2013 Page 9By DAVID WHITE Mention Zinfandel to most wine consumers, and its quickly dismissed. Its easy to see why. For starters, many Americans associate the variety with the cheap, sweet blush wines that became popular in the 1980s, like Sutter Homes white Zinfandel. This style of wine will always have fans, but to my palate, its just too cloying. Most white Zinfandel tastes more like Kool-Aid than wine. Among consumers who know that Zinfandel can produce dry reds, many believe the variety inevitably produces monolithic, alcoholic fruit bombs. Avoiding such wines makes sense its dif cult to nd pleasure in wines that go down like cough syrup. Its unfortunate that so many wine drinkers have these impressions. Zinfandel can be delicious. The best examples are wonderfully accessible and strike the perfect balance between power and nesse. While certainly robust, theyre marked by fresh, brambly berries and are energetic enough to pair with a variety of cuisines. Plus, Zinfandel is uniquely and distinctly American. Its well worth exploring. Zinfandel has a fascinating history. For most of its existence, it was thought to be an indigenous American grape. But when a professor from University of California, Davis, visited Italy in 1967, he realized that Primitivo a dark-skinned, southern Italian grape was remarkably similar to the American original. By 1972, researchers concluded that the grapes were, in fact, identical. Primitivo, however, also had dubious origins. So researchers started investigating, and in the late 1990s determined that Zinfandels roots are Croatian. Zinfandel came to the United States in the late 1820s, when a nursery owner in New York purchased cuttings from Austria. The origins of the name Zinfandel remain a mystery, but shortly after its arrival to the East Coast, the grapes popularity quickly soared. This made perfect sense the grape was a home winemakers dream, as it was reasonably easy to grow, vigorous, and fairly resistant to disease. When East Coasters started heading to California during the gold rush, Zinfandel followed and quickly became the variety of choice, often planted right alongside other grapes for diversity. Many of these vineyards remain, giving wine drinkers a direct connection to Californias earliest settlers. (Its worth noting that if it werent for the popularity of white Zinfandel in the 1980s and s, many of these vineyards would have been ripped up.) Without question, these ancient vineyards typically full of thick, gnarly vines produce the most complex, vibrant wines. Plus, as New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov once wrote, [these] wines seem to tell stories. Not red, white and blue fables of triumphalism but tales of immigrant vision and perseverance, of American history and the pastoral roots of a great industry. Several California vintners are working to catalog, protect, and promote these vineyards through a new nonpro t called the Historic Vineyard Society. Winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson, the 32-year-old owner of Bedrock Wine Company, is leading this effort. Twain-Peterson has become a rock star in the wine community because his wines sourced from some of Californias oldest vines and made using old-fashioned winemaking techniques are stunning. Indeed, his winerys namesake, the Bedrock Vineyard, was planted nearly 125 years ago. Twain-Peterson estimates that the vineyard is about half Zinfandel and a quarter Carignane, with varieties like Mourvedre, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah comprising the rest. Other wineries that source from ancient vineyards include Ridge, Ravenswood, and Seghesio, all of which make delicious, affordable wines that can easily be found at your local wine shop. Smaller labels worth looking for include Carlisle Winery, Dashe Cellars, and Nalle. With all these producers, the big Zinfandel fruit is still there, of course, but the wines are balanced, bright, and pair well with food. Those who fear monolithic, alcoholic fruit bombs when purchasing Zinfandel still have plenty to worry about. But more and more producers in a quest to rediscover Americas winemaking are moving towards elegance. -Janet WHITES WINESZinfandel: Uniquely and Distinctly American Sandwiches Soft Shell CrabsGrouper ShrimpOysters Mullet We Catch itCatshHot Dogs SPECIALS!

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 24, 2013 Page 11outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWell, if you are an Atlanta Falcons fan like I am, you were surely disappointed this past weekend. Atlanta teams just cant seem to win the big ones. I should have gone shing instead of watching the game. This weather we are having is crazy. Its no wonder that so many people are sick. Gail and I have been ghting a cold for three weeks and are nally starting to feel back to normal. On Monday, I took my boat over to Mikes Marine Ways to have it detailed and I ran from Shell Point to St. Marks and took out at the fort. There were probably 30 trucks and trailers at the boat ramp when I got there and I told David I only saw ve boats out shing from the fort to the mouth of the river. He said while he was waiting for me all the folks that put in headed up the St. Marks River or up the Wakulla. Jimmy Bevis at Shell Island said some folks are catching sh but most arent. One of his guides shed four days last week and caught quite a few sh but Jimmy said he was about the only one. He has been shing up past the power plant and shing live shrimp on the bottom. He said the key is throwing it out and just letting it sit. One day they came in with 40 pounds of trout and reds. I talked to JR at the Aucilla and he said the same thing. Some people are catching and some are just shing and boat riding. He shed last week and had some really good days. One day he shed east towards the Econ na and caught about 20 reds but no trout. The next day he went west and they came back with 20 trout and seven reds. He shed as far as the creeks behind Gray Mare Rock. Everything they have been catching is hitting the Gulp Glow Jerk Shad using a 1/16 or 1/8-ounce lead head. One day he said he saw a school of about 500 big reds in about two feet of water but couldnt get close enough to cast to them. All the sh he has been catching are up in the creeks. Mike Pearson, my neighbor from Tifton, went to the Econ na last weekend with his wife and they caught their limit of nice trout using a gray and silver Mirrolure. They shed in the river while most of the other boats went out of the river and headed east or west. Capt. David Fife is back from Panama City and he shed with some friends on Sunday and caught seven nice trout using a chartreuse Mirrolure. I shed with Dr. Julian Hurt and Bill Birdwell last week and we went in Dr. Hurts new boat. He got a 22-foot Scout. I have never been a fan of the Scout but this was a really nice boat. Rode good and had plenty of shing room. We caught about 10 trout but only kept two. He didnt have a ruler on board and three of the sh were threw back were probably legal but they would have been close. I went back Sunday and shed the last of the rising tide and beginning of the fall and caught 17 trout using a New Penny Gulp and Pearl White Gulp. I released all of them and about eight or nine were legal. They bit best as the tide started to fall. Capt. Randy Peart said he shed up the Ochlockonee River last weekend with his son who is going in or has already gone in the Army. They shed ies and caught four bass, two reds and three trout. He felt like there were a lot of trout up there but all they shed were ies. I had heard that the limit on trout was going to be increased to six in our area but according to the newest regulations it is still ve sh, minimum of 15 inches, and you can possess one fish more than 20 inches. In the Northeast area, which is over around Jacksonville, the limit is six and four in the Southeast and Southwest zones. The limit on red sh is tw o with a vessel limit of eight sh. In other words if you have five people shing on the boat you can only keep eight sh. Federal waters are also off limits for reds. If this weather continues through February, we should have another early season for fishing the ats for trout. Last year, we started catching them on the ats the middle of March. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing!With this crazy weather, some people are catching sh, some are just riding in their boat From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Florida Forestry ServiceSeventy ve to eighty percent of wildfires in Florida are human caused each year. Arson and escaped debris burns top the list of causes. With springtime in sight now is the right time to clean up and prepare. The Florida Forest Service suggests the following: Keep rooftops and gutters free of yard debris and leaves Keep the area under decks and porches clean of yard debris and leaves Keep a 3-5 foot space around your home and attachments that is fuel free Make sure that trees, shrubs, and plants within the rst thirty feet of your home are healthy, adequately spaced and not overhanging the house When burning debris, check rst with your local Florida Forest Service office to find out how to burn legally and safely. If you witness suspicious activity or res, call 911 or the Florida Arson Alert Hotline (800) 3425869. From DEP NewsThe Florida Department of Environmental Protections Florida Park Service is proud to offer manatee viewing and manatee awareness events at select state parks where manatees congregate in the winter. The manatee is Floridas of cial state marine mammal and is listed as endangered at the international, federal and state levels. We are pleased to help interpret the beauty of Florida manatees through viewing locations and educational programs at state parks for our visitors, said Donald Forgione, DEPs Florida Park Service Director. These gentle giants remind us how important it is to protect and preserve Floridas environment and the springs where the manatees gather. In winter, manatees gather in the warmer waters of Floridas springs. Since they are a subtropical species, manatees cannot tolerate prolonged exposure to water temperatures below 68 degrees. The following state parks offer manatee viewing areas and some are hosting manatee awareness events: Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park at Wakulla Springs: Winter wildlife is abounding right now along the river including migratory ducks and an expanding manatee population, meaning your river boat tour will give you an incredible wildlife viewing encounter. Blue Spring State Park in Orange City: On Jan. 26 and 27, join Blue Spring State Park for the 28th Annual Orange City Blue Spring Manatee Festival at Valentine Park. Activities for the whole family include zoo presentations, arts and crafts, dancing, face painting, food, entertainment and more. Admission to the Festival includes a free shuttle to Blue Spring State Park to see manatees. Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park: Visitors can see West Indian manatees every day of the year from the parks underwater observatory in the main spring. This elevated boardwalk starts at the park entrance and surrounds the main spring to the Fish Bowl underwater observatory. The viewing area is glass-fronted with bleachers and a space up front for wheelchair-accessible viewing during manatee programs. If youre fortunate enough to encounter one of these beautiful creatures in the wild, make sure to be aware of the following guidelines: While Swimming: Look, but dont touch or feed manatees. Do not pursue or chase a manatee. Give manatees space to move. Dont isolate or single out an individual manatee from its group, and dont separate a cow from her calf. Avoid excessive noise and splashing if a manatee appears in your swimming area. Use snorkel gear when attempting to watch manatees. The sound of bubbles from scuba gear may cause manatees to leave the area. While Boating: Abide by the posted speed zone signs while in areas known to have manatees present or when observations indicate manatees might be present. Wear polarized sunglasses to reduce glare on the surface of the water and make manatees more visible to you. Remain at least 50 feet away from a manatee when operating a powerboat. Dont operate a boat over large concentrations of manatees. Dont discard mono lament line, hooks or any other litter into the water.Florida state parks welcome manatee visitorsBe prepared for wild re year round SPORT ..........................................................AGE FEE T-BALL MINOR LEAGUE ...............................................4&5 $40 T-BALL MAJOR LEAGUE ..............................................6&7 $40 PITCHING MACHINE LEAGUE .......................................7&8 $45 WAKULLA CAL RIPKEN LEAGUEMinor ..................9&10 $95 WAKULLA CAL RIPKEN LEAGUEMajor* ..................11&12 $95 (All Cal Ripken players must attend Skills Assessment being conducted either on 2/2/13 OR 2/9/13 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

Page 12 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 24, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comIt seems unreal that the month is almost behind us already! Each February, the district holds a meeting similar to our division. The last ve years, this has been held in Destin, however it has moved onto another division for the coming years. Several members of our division will be heading over to Mobile, Ala., for the meeting Feb. 14-17. With the split in meeting locations, we had to nd an alternate plan for our meeting. Thankfully, we have a great relationship with both Station Panama City and Station Destin. Our division will meet on Feb. 2 at Station Destin. Following our business meeting we will have a fellowship cookout with station members and auxiliarists. Typically our fall meeting is held in Panama City and the summer meeting rotates to other locations. This past fall, Gordon Schmidt was elected as our division commander. Gordon served as the vice commander for the last two years. Eric DeVuyst was elected as the vice division commander. It is traditional for the newly elected of cers to ask for interested members from the ve otillas to fill staff officer positions. Often the Division Staff Officers (SOs) serve as mentors to the Flotilla Staff Officers (FSOs), as well as liaisons between district and national staff. This year, the following staff officers were appointed: Communications Dallas Cochan. Communication Services Dale Crow. Finance Tim Ashley. Human Resources Stan Smith. Information Services Curt Waier. Materials Lynn Mott. Marine Safety Phillip Williamson II. Member Training Anne DelBello. Navigation Systems Michael Spiglemire. Operations Joe Mof- tt. Public Education John Rebel. Program Visitation George Gross. Secretary Carolyn Treadon. Vessel Examinations Gerald Damico. National Safe Boating Week George Brim. Quali cations Examination T.J. DelBello. In addition to the SOs, there is a Division Board made up of the division commander, division vice commander, immediate past division commander and otilla commanders. The board will be presented next week. And as Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident. Sign up for our upcoming ABS Class on Jan. 26 to learn more about being safe out on the water! If you are interested in attending this class or one of our future classes please contact our Public Education staff of cer at FSO-PE@uscgaux.net or check out our website at www.uscgaux.net.a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

An email arrives with the expectation of immediate response. When I dont, the sender is offended. Such technology permits rapid access to information increasing the ef ciency of learning. Our younger folks are tuned into the internet. Consequently, everything is speeding up. I was told a few days ago that scuba instruction has been made more ef cient by Internet e-learning. Students are plugged into a distant database and structure automated class, and taught the knowledge part of diving. That left the water-work half of the class to nish training the student in one weekend. They doubled the number of students, making more money. Now, diving instructors can be expected to focus on the water skills and not on the knowledge of diving! The shop owner did say she was disappointed how little dive instructors understood the science of diving these days, but she can now blame the agency producing the e-class when injuries happen. When I taught diving at the university, our basic students took 16 weeks to learn to dive. Their instructors took a minimum of 16 months to become a certi ed scuba instructor. They rst had to pass the Dive Technology course where they mastered how our equipment worked and is repaired. The next semester was dedicated to learning how to assist in a class (Assistant Instructor). Passing those tough exams let the candidate move on to Dive Master, training to manage the risk of diving. Passing those exams and supervising dive operations allowed the individual to enter a formal instructor course leading up to a battery of practical and academic tests at the end of the fourth semester. Of course, everyone worked around the basic students every semester, a type of mentoring program from the top down. Today we nd people who only learned how to dive a year ago, teaching others to dive with little experience or understanding themselves. We call this a zero to hero situation. I often speak to folks looking for refresher courses just to better understand what was missing from their basic scuba class. Pick your instructor and their training program carefully. Then take the time to soak up the information and skills to make diving truly enjoyable. Then nd like-minded friends and go diving in the water. Once comfortable, expand into new diving areas and skills. Diving is full of opportunity best taken as a journey, not a destination. And like so many things off the Internet, let the buyer beware! UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg Stanton From FWC This report represents some events the FWC handled over the week of Jan. 11 to Jan. 17; however, it does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement. LEON COUNTY: Of cer Chris Jones responded to a complaint of a subject that was cleaning a doe deer in Leon County. The caller advised that he observed a subject in possession of a trophy buck. After a closer look the caller advised that there was another deer under the buck which appeared to be a doe. Of cer Jones responded to the area, and located the subject with the doe. The subject advised that he did not kill the doe but he knew who did and took Of cer Jones to where the doe was killed or picked up. The subject took Of cer Jones to some county property that is a nature preserve in Leon County where hunting is not allowed. At this time, Officer Jones requested assistance, and Officer Charles Higman and K-9 Of cer Chase Yarbrough responded. During the investigation, they came into contact with the subject who shot the doe deer along with the buck. The suspect admitted to hunting on county property. Of cer Yarbrough and K-9 Drake located the area where the suspect was crawling under the fence and hunting on county property. Blood was found on the county property in different locations. During the investigation, it was determined that both deer were shot on the county preserve. Two subjects were cited, and the investigation is ongoing. Both deer were seized along with a muzzleloader. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: While on patrol in Perdido River Management Area, Lt. Brian Lambert stopped a vehicle that was in the area after legal hours. While approaching the driver, Lieutenant Lambert smelled the odor of burnt cannabis. Lieutenant Lambert asked the driver to step out of the vehicle. When the driver exited the vehicle, Lieutenant Lambert noticed a cannabis cigarette on the oorboard, and the driver admitted the cannabis was his. The cannabis was seized and a notice to appear citation was issued for the violation. SANTA ROSA COUNTY: On January 12-13, the inaugural Wounded Warrior hunt entitled, Operation Outdoor Freedom, was conducted in the Blackwater WMA. Five hunters, with assistants, participated in the event and harvested 11 deer. The hunt was initiated by the Florida Forest Service and coordinated through FWC for approval and monitoring of the special hunt within a traditionally closed area. OKALOOSA COUNTY: In the early morning hours, Lt. Mark Hollinhead, Investigator James Armstrong and Officer Randall Brooks received a request from the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office to assist with a subject stopped by a deputy for night hunting. The deputy was investigating a vehicle that was damaged in the incident. The of cers arrived and spoke with the landowner. Apparently, the landowner heard shots and located a dead doe on his property. When the subjects returned to pick up the deer using a light, an employee for the property owner turned on his own spotlight and opened fire in the direction of the subjects vehicle. The employee shot the vehicle and was arrested by the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Deputy. Evidence of the night hunting incident was collected, and the subjects were interviewed by the FWC Of cers. The investigation of the event is ongoing and charges are pending. WALTON COUNTY: Lt. Mark Hollinhead, Investigator James Armstrong, and Of cer Randall Brooks, utilized the decoy deer to work a night hunting detail along Hwy. 20 in Walton County. Shortly after midnight, a vehicle turned around in front of Of cer Brooks and Investigator Armstrong, and a shot was red. When the of cers caught up to the vehicle, they found an adult male and his nine year old son. The driver was issued a citation for attempting to take deer by use of gun and light, and the rearm was seized.FWC Law Enforcement Operations P.O.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 24, 2013 Page 15 Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate LifeBy MAURICE LANGSTONExecutive DirectorIts been a real privilege to work along side of R. H. Carter for the past three weeks. He has been a man of vision for the Senior Center and a champion for all of seniors living in Wakulla County. I am thankful that he is my friend, my neighbor, and will still be active at the center. His daily presence will be missed by the many staff members, as well as the seniors themselves who have grown to love him and hold him in high esteem. His leadership has been fair, rm and always compassionate to our wonderful staff. Its not uncommon to see them walking around with tear-stained eyes as his departure grows close. Its not often we see men of greatness, but R. H. Carter is a great man and leaves a legacy of goodness, godliness and service to Wakulla County and especially to our seniors. People, organizations and clubs appear to run to him with a donation in hand to make sure that every senior in this county is served. This past week Progress Energy dropped in and gave $500 to the centers meal program. To have a business partner like Progress Energy for our seniors is refreshing and rewarding. Many meals will be provided to seniors because of this generous donation. Less than an hour later, Ef e Green walks in the center and gives a generous donation from the womens organization of the Spring Hill Convention. Their church and convention has been a blessing to our seniors for years now. Thank you, Spring Hill Convention! On Farmers Day at the center, everyone wore the appropriate attire. We had bib-overalls, blue jeans, green John Deere shirts and caps and plaid seemed to be the color of the day. Chef Wendy prepared a hot delicious meal and we all enjoyed great fellowship with our seniors. UPCOMING Black History Month will be celebrated in February at the center. Our seniors will do projects in arts and crafts led by Tamara Byrnes. On Feb. 22, you will want to be at the center to enjoy the Mystery Dinner Theater. Wakulla High School Dramatis Personae, under the direction of Susan Solburg, will be presenting a murder mystery and the theme for the evening will be the Wild, Wild West. You will enjoy the cuisine, the atmosphere and the connection to the past lifestyle and apparel of the early 1860s when Wyatt Earp, Pat Garrett, Bat Masterson and the legendary Texas Rangers kept the peace in places like Tombstone and Dodge City. Candlelight will be burning into the night at the center to give the touch of romanticism and a feeling of being in a cabin in the wilderness like the rst settlers. It will be an action-packed murder mystery you wont want to miss as our students connect with our seniors in a canyon called Generation Gap. Proceeds from the evening will bene t the Senior Citizens of Wakulla County, the WHS Dramatist Personae Department and a scholarship to be awarded to a student of the arts. DID YOU KNOW: Florida, until fairly recently, was a very young state. On the eve of World War II the median age of the population of Florida was younger than that of the United States as a whole. Seniors did not ock to Florida like they do now because it was hot, humid and above all it was hard to get to in the 1920s. However, Florida had long been promoted as a place for cures. From the time of Ponce de Leon and the Fountain of Youth, Florida has been credited as the place for a cure for whatever you had. For example, salt water, sunshine and springs were created and Florida was viewed as a place of rejuvenation! Many people see the world as going gray. For me, gray is my favorite color and always has been even from my youth. My children were raised as small boys to visit nursing homes and senior centers. I wanted them to meet the greatest generation, the people who have made Florida and certainly Wakulla County the great place that it is today. In some instances reality hits us as the world is going gray. It seems sometime after 60, something happens to people; lifealtering events cascade one after another. Family nests are emptied; jobs end or change; spouses, friends and kinfolk grow gravely ill or perhaps pass away; bodies and minds decline; ones status and power in the family and in social circles inverts; money draws down; and, as remaining years grow fewer, relationship with time and eternity shift.Continued on Page 22Im grateful for R.H. CarterBy MICHELLE HUNTERof the Senior CenterThe rst week of December, the Senior Center was in holiday mode. The Christmas tree was already up and the dining room was decorated with a variety of wreaths, including a very large one at the front of the room, vases with holiday ower arrangements, angels and ornaments hung from the ceiling, and two Mr. and Mrs. Santa quilts adorned the walls. The quilts were handmade by two of our seniors, Elaine Webb and Mary Mills. We raf ed off Elaines quilt and it was won by Martha Smith. We will be keeping Marys to adorn the walls every year at Christmas. The seniors enjoyed a lovely performance of Christmas music by the Wakulla Middle School Eighth Grade Band, directed by Laura Hudson. There were 51 students in the band and the performance was outstanding. Other performances were given by the singing group The Silver Bells, directed by Reba Mason, and The Wakulla Wigglers Line Dancing Group. The gospel music group, with Joan and Charlie Smith, performed on the rst Thursday of the month, varied their performance to re ect a Christmas theme. Florida Wild Mammal Association presented a beautiful basket to Annie Edwards, Rebecca Addison and Ida Moore, in appreciation of their volunteer hours spent preparing stacks of newspaper for the animal cages at the rescue facility. Tamaras Tuesday craft class geared up for the gift giving season with the seniors making some beautifully crafted items. Wine bottle nightlights were created by stringing a strand of mini Christmas lights through a hole in the bottom of the bottle, the holes were drilled by Chris and Phyllis Berninger. Picture frames with words like friends and dreams carved in them were decorated with paint and artifacts. Charlotte Miller donated teddy bears that were dressed with new clothes, hats, glasses, owers and jewels; how adorable they were. The annual Christmas Brunch, served up by Chef Mary, was enjoyed by all who attended. The Pickin n Grinnin Band started the day off at 8:30 a.m. Marys omelette bar was warmed up and ready for special orders. Katie served up waf es with strawberries and whip cream, and sausage, eggs, ham, and grits were served by staff members. Santa arrived to a loud cheer and several had their pictures taken with him. He listened to their wishes and gave everyone a candy cane. Jo Ann Palmer graciously took pictures of the event. Bruce Ashley, of the sheriffs of ce, brought in loads of stuffed animals from Operation Santa, and gave one to everyone in attendance to take home. We started selling raf e tickets in July and on this day several prizes were given out to the winners. The items won were two large potted poinsettia plants, donated by a staff member, a crocheted afghan donated by Joan Valliancourt, a variety pack from Omaha Steaks donated by Jerry and Virginia Moore, and a JVC video camera was won by Rose McDaniel of South Florida. It was McDaniels rst day at the Senior Center; she was here visiting her daughter. The ladies received a ower pin made of Christmas fabric, and the gentlemen received a Christmas stocking lled with candy, donated by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Womans Circle. During the week before Christmas, bags of oranges, apples and candy were sent out to our homebound seniors and other seniors who visited the center. The fruit was put together and donated by the local 4-H Club. As the year ended, Chef Mary retired and a new chef Wendy Harley took over. Meals are served daily in the dining room at noon. Please let us know by 9:30 a.m. if you will be here for lunch. Meals on Wheels are also provided through the center for those who are homebound. Call 926-7145 for more information. AARP will provide free tax aide every Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from Feb. 6 to April 15 at the center. Someone from the property appraisers of ce will be here every Friday in February from 10 a.m. to noon to assist with tax exemptions.

Carter, of cially stepped down from the post on Friday, Jan. 18, and was given a retirement party by seniors, the center staff and friends. Carter received congratulations from well-wishers, heard some emotional speeches, and accepted some retirement gifts including a cedar bench where he can sit and watch his chickens. He was also given a photo of Marilyn Monroe. Incoming director Maurice Langston praised Carter for being the type of man who gets things done. When he sees something that needs to be done, whether its building a senior center or building senior apartments or stripping tablecloths, hes not afraid to roll up his sleeves and do the hard work, Langston said. For his part, Carter looked at the table where his staff sat and said how much he loved them. I have to be the luckiest guy in the world to have worked here, he told them. R.H.

Hollywood has played on the publics revulsion of these misunderstood creatures. In the 1950s there were giant spiders on the silver screen that were the byproduct of nuclear experiments gone awry. These megaarachnids always had an appetite for police patrol cars, livestock and the hapless residents of the town near the atomic experiment. In recent years there have been lms about spiders of a realistic size, but with ability to coordinate a special-ops attack which would be the envy of Osama bin Ladin. Movie trailers scream about the plague of the deadly Hopping Malaysian Vampire Spiders. Reality is quite different. Wakulla Countys native spiders are not aggressive to humans and most pass their lives unseen. Two local spiders which are large enough to be noticed, several inches toe-to-toe, are the Wolf spider and the Golden orb spider. While big on the local spider scale, they lead very different lives. Wolf spiders are ambush predators which are insect excellent hunters. They can be frequently found in burrows which serve both as their home and a base for a surprise attack on unlucky bugs which happened to wonder to close. While seen during the day, these spiders are primarily nocturnal hunters which are known to spring out and chase their intended victims for short distances. Two of their six eyes are large and will re ect light at night, making them easy to spot with a ashlight. If provoked, they will bite non-insect molesters. Their venom is mildly toxic and will cause swelling and redness. These spiders are protective mothers with an egg sac attached at the end of their abdomen. This allows the spider to carry her unborn young with her. The abdomen is held in a raised position to keep the egg case from dragging on the ground. Despite this unique trait wolf spiders are still capable of effective hunting. Immediately after the next generation of wolf spiders emerges from their protective silken case, they clamber up their mothers legs and crowd onto her abdomen. She provides them with food and protection until they are able to fend for themselves. Golden Orb Spiders, sometimes called banana spiders, are noted for their impressive large webs. These large spiders are frequently found on their webs between trees or large shrubs. The yellow or golden tinted webs are used to trap insects which are attracted to its color and may be over a yard wide. Portions of the webs are sticky, but the outer web is not and is used by the spider for quickly reaching a victim. As with the wolf spider, the golden orb spiders venom is not lethal to humans. It has a neurotoxic effect similar to that of the black widow, but not as potent.

Time expands, social circles grow bigger and broader, new passions are springing up like branches from a new root. I see our seniors experiencing a sweet rejuvenation. Zumba, yoga and other exercise programs are offered and well received. Arts and crafts dont just sit on the shelf but are practiced and seniors are learning they have talents and creativity they never discovered before. And dancing, our seniors will dance to Hank Williams or to Led Zeppelin. I wondered what they enjoyed most at the center the music, the dancing, the arts and crafts or the meals. Im convinced they nd something here much more precious and priceless than these tangible gains, they nd independence and they crave it everyday. While we provide a host of services I think the greatest service that we provide is independence whether it is here at the center or in their home. They all want independence! At the center we encourage seniors not to sit around and wait for life to pass by; live it! Someone has well said, An hour lived is one less hour to live. Therefore, we the staff at the center, the board of directors and volunteers have decided to help our seniors pack as much life into one hour as can be enjoyed. After all, we must move forward with lifes healthy and wholesome pleasures. Someone has dubbed Florida as Gods Waiting Room. Our seniors in Wakulla County do not have to wait to be served at the center: They have to wait in waiting rooms attached to doctors of ces, clinics, and hospitals and other appointments. We are thankful that we can take them to these appointments and if waiting is required, we will wait with them and care for them and bring them back to their homes or the center. The Wakulla Senior Center Council has determined this population of beloved citizens will wait no more while they visit us and socialize with us. What an honor it is to be able to plan activities that bring happiness to other. Maurice Langston is the new executive director of the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center.
