Crawfordville man wins $250,000 in lottery game FLORIDA LOTTERYMartay Isaac claims his winnings last week. JENNIFER JENSEN JENNIFER JENSENErik Bendl, aka World Guy, on the road outside Panacea headed toward Medart last week. Erik Bendl gets back on the road.World Guy visits WakullaBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netWhile driving down U.S. Highway 98 last Thursday, one may have come across a man pushing a very large rubber ball with a dog at his side. At rst glance, people may think this 50-year-old-man from Louisville, Ky., is strange but after nding out why he is pushing this 6-foot tall, 60-pound rubber ball with a map of the world hand painted onto it, Erik Bendl says their reaction is positive. Bendl, or World Guy as he is known, has walked more than 6,000 miles and in 39 states with the world and Nice the dog to raise awareness about diabetes. My mother passed away from diabetes, Bendl says. So there you have it. His mother, Greta Bendl, was a Kentucky state representative and died from complications from diabetes when she was in her 50s. Bendl says remembering her struggle led him to his cause. He also lost his brother-in-law. His uncle who is in his 80s also has diabetes, but manages it with insulin and diet and exercise. The idea behind his cause is to encourage people to stay active and get out and walk, he adds. Bendl is on his ninth walk in the last 6 years. He started in Pensacola and his goal is to eventually reach Tampa. His walks last anywhere from one month to ve months and he tries to stay in the southern states during the winter and the northern states during the summer. He and Nice only walk when temperatures are between 30 and 80 degrees. He averages about 10 miles a day, depending on how many times he gets stopped by curious onlookers. Sometimes it will take him ve hours to go 2 miles, he says. Ive learned to be very patient, Bendl says. You never know which way the wind will blow and how many people will stop. During his trek through Wakulla County, Wakulla County Sheriffs Of- ce Lt. Bruce Ashley pulled over to see what the globe was all about. I just had to stop, Lt. Ashley says. Bendl explains his cause to Ashley, telling him, Im trying to get you out here walking to keep the diabetes away. Ashley told Bendl to call the sheriffs of ce if needed and said, Thank you for bringing this message to our county. When he is nished walking for the day, he relies on his GPS or good people system to nd someone to drive him back to his van, which he calls his little cocoon. Once he gets back to his van, he will drive to the place where he stopped and rest for the night. Then the next day, he is back at it. Everyone knows someone with diabetes, he says. He meets people along his journey who tell him of their own struggles with diabetes or a loved ones struggles. Ive met some characters, Bendl says. Ive had every come to Jesus meeting on the side of the road. He has had people come up to him with stories of triumph. People who recently lost 150 pounds and no longer have to take an insulin shot four times a day because of their diabetes. The most rewarding part of his journey is when he receives a message from someone thanking him for taking the lead. Someone will send a message to me saying they found their walking legs, he says. Bendl accepts donations along his walks for the American Diabetes Association and is involved in the Step Out, Walk to Stop Diabetes campaign. He has raised more than $1,700 for the association. The gigantic rubber ball was originally pumped up for his sons seventh birthday. It was too big for the backyard so he and his son would walk with it. People started asking questions about the ball and wanted to know why he was walking, and if he had a message. This led him to his rst long walk in the late 1990s from Louisville, Ky., to Pittsburgh, Pa., during the ADAs Alert Week. Then in 2007, he started walking across the country. He documents his adventures in his blog, www.worldguy.org, and on facebook. In his blog, he says, Diabetes has reached epidemic status in our nation and I am dedicated to walk and help bring awareness in my own small way.Erik Bendl travels with a large globe and a dog to bring awareness about diabetes Jodie Martin is named Teacher of the Year Jodie Martin is named T eacher of the Year Candyavored tobacco ordinance repealedBoard hopes 319 will be designated Strategic Intermodal System County commission:Stories on Page 3A

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce and Wakulla County School District have joined forces to provide a new level of security at county school campuses. In response to an active shooter incident in Connecticut in December, the WCSO stepped up security measures at Wakulla schools prior to the Christmas holidays. During the new security program, K-9 unit animals will be used periodically to go on snif ng missions in the schools and parking lots of secondary schools to ensure the safety of students and staff. The dogs will be on campuses periodically checking lockers and parts of the facility and an awareness assembly is planned where Superintendent Bobby Pearce and Sheriff Charlie Creel will explain the partnership between the school district and law enforcement during school level assemblies. Security cameras will also be monitored along with a number of other measures that have been underway in school facilities in previous months. We want to be proactive and create a partnership with the sheriffs of ce where we can talk and have an open dialog about improving school and student safety, said Superintendent Pearce. The school system and the WCSO are sharing in this responsibility to bene t everyone in Wakulla County. Pearce and School Safety Of cer Jim Griner have met with Sheriff Creel, Undersheriff Trey Morrison and Major Shepard Bruner, who supervises the law enforcement division, regarding the best ways to keep students and faculty safe. They plan to continue the dialogue. We will continue to develop a relationship between the sheriffs of ce and the school district to nd the very best methods to address school safety from all angles, said Sheriff Creel. We will enhance what we are doing now while also addressing the nancial burden we face of operating with smaller budgets each year. Pearce and Griner have met with Florida Legislative of cials in an effort to determine if the state plans to help school districts address the financial burden additional security measures will cost the district. State lawmakers will also be looking for federal assistance to help fund new security measures. Creel and Morrison will be attending the Florida Sheriffs Association mid-winter conference in late January to discuss the same issue from a law enforcement standpoint. The two agencies plan to increase the number of periodic patrols conducted by road patrol deputies while continuing the Substance Abuse Violence Education (SAVE) Program in fth grade and School Resource Of cers in the middle schools and high school and at the elementary schools when needed. We are attempting to address our security concerns in the most cost effective manner while keeping the school facilities from resembling a detention facility, said Creel. We plan increased foot patrols at school facilities as well as heightened random patrols. I was very pleased by the response from parents following the active shooter incident in December, said Pearce. We were very proactive with our robo-call informing the public about the increased law enforcement presence in school zones and on campuses. We have had a very dif cult rst period (in December) and now we are working on long range planning and the best use of our tax dollars. Many parents were concerned about student safety following the Connecticut shooting and parents thanked law enforcement and school of cials for their quick response and visible presence at schools to ease the worries of parents when they dropped off children or placed them on the bus during the nal week of the December portion of the school year. I have agreed to speak to the students at the high school to explain how important maintaining a safe school environment is for everyone, Creel said. We want everyone in the community to know that we care about them and we are here to help them. By BETH ODONNELLAssistant Superintendent Medart Elementary School teacher Jodie Martin was announced by Wakulla County Superintendent Bobby Pearce as the 2013 Wakulla County Teacher of the Year on Jan. 25. Her fth grade class of students excitedly clapped and cheered as he presented her with owers and balloons. She will now go on to compete with the other District Teachers of the Year for Regional and then State Teacher of the Year. In July, all school districts Teachers of the Year will be honored at this Florida Department of Education-Macys sponsored program in Orlando. Mrs. Martin is a great representative of the excellent teachers we have in Wakulla, said Superintendent Pearce. She truly cares about every aspect of her students from their academics to their physical, emotional, and social well-being. Medart Principal Sharon Kemp added, Mrs. Martin takes a personal interest in every one of her students. By getting to know each ones strengths and weaknesses, she both challenges them and helps them in a loving way. She is thoughtful and innovative, making sure she is up on the latest research and then shares it with her colleagues. Martin holds a bachelors degree in Elementary Education, and is certi- ed in ESE (Exceptional Student Education) and ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages). This is her eighth year of teaching. I have a very simple philosophy of teaching, Martin said. I teach students, not subjects. We take responsibility for each others success with the students working in groups when learning new concepts until they are comfortable enough to work on their own. When the students trust and respect each other, it creates an amazing classroom atmosphere where students no longer have a fear of failure. Martin is involved in many aspects of education, including as School Advisory Council co-chair, Grade Level Chair, Safety Patrol Chair, and Medarts SAVE (Substance Abuse and Violence Resistance Education) Coordinator in conjunction with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce. She is also a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, an international women educators society, and is on the Medart Reading Leadership Team, the Science Curriculum Committee, and the Math Curriculum Committee. School Level Teachers of the Year were selected by their peers at their schools, and then went on to apply for the district title. An experienced panel of three educators scored written packets and rated interviews where all candidates had the same questions asked of them. Eight candidates represented their schools as School Level Teachers of the Year. The other outstanding School Level Teachers of the Year for 2013 are Miranda Bowen of Crawfordville Elementary; Julia Parker of Riversink Elementary; Kay Reeves of Shadeville Elementary; Charlotte McCormick of Riversprings Middle School; Josh Sandgren of Wakulla Middle School; Shari Evans of Wakulla High School; and Mary Fort, a staf ng specialist representing the districtwide professionals who serve many schools. These representatives and all Wakulla County teachers will be honored at the Teacher of the Year Breakfast sponsored by Capital City Bank on March 15 at Riversprings Middle School. Martin is married to Daryl Martin and they have three sons: Gage, a 2010 Wakulla High School graduate; Gunnar, a 10th grader at WHS; and Lochlan, a Wakulla Middle School eighth grader.Jodie Martin named Wakulla Teacher of the Year SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAssistant Superintendent Beth ODonnell, Superintendent Bobby Pearce, Teacher of the Year Jodie Martin, Medart Principal Sharon Kemp, and Assistant Principal Belinda McElroy. Pearce, Creel meet to discuss school security Dont Miss the Signs unveiledSpecial to The NewsTALLAHASSEE Dont Miss the Signs thats the message Floridians will soon see on television ads, posters and other materials, urging them to raise their voices to stop child abuse. The comprehensive public awareness campaign will educate Floridians about their obligation to report suspected abuse under Floridas sweeping new child abuse reporting law, which took effect Oct. 1. Last year, the Florida Legislature passed the nations most protective child abuse reporting law, making it clear that reporting suspected child abuse is everyones responsibility, not just designated professional reporters such as medical professionals and teachers. The law also clari es that the states abuse hotline will accept reports of abuse committed by people other than parents and primary caregivers, such as a coach, teacher or neighbor. Florida has set a national standard for child protection through the strength of our laws, said DCF Secretary David Wilkins. But our laws are only effective if our citizens are willing to do their part and report abuse if they suspect a child is at risk. We must do everything we can to protect Floridas children, and Dont Miss the Signs will help all of us recognize the signs of abuse and help children immediately, said Attorney General Pam Bondi. To drive home the message that all citizens have a responsibility to report abuse, the public is encouraged to sign an online petition (I commit my eyes, my voice to protect our children) on the website DontMissTheSigns.org. The site also provides educational materials about child abuse prevention. Rain or Shine March 16 at Hudson ParkCrawfordville Hwy.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIn November, the Wakulla County Commission adopted an ordinance restricting the sale of candy- avored tobacco products in the county at the insistence of Students Working Against Tobacco and Tonya Hobby, a full time tobacco program specialist with the health department. However, at its Jan. 22 meeting, the commission decided to repeal the ordinance, 10 days before the ordinance was to go into effect. I think the unintended consequences outweighed the bene ts of it, said Commission Chairman Randy Merritt. The ordinance would have only allowed those establishments which require patrons and customers to be 21 years old or older to enter to sell avored tobacco products. I think its harmful to businesses and its impacting adults who use it, said Commissioner Richard Harden. Since the commission passed the ordinance, business owners who currently sell the product have expressed their frustration, saying it will hurt their business. Ronald Fred Crum, owner of Crums MiniMall, said everyone should be against children having access to tobacco, but these products are behind the counter and those who buy it must be 18 years or older. Instead, Crum said, everyone should be making an effort to enforce the law and address when children under age are using tobacco. Commissioner Jerry Moore agreed with Crum and said if the state has this law then there was no need for the ordinance. Later in the meeting, he added that the state needs to be the one to tighten the rules and suggested sending a resolution in support of that. I dont think we can solve it from the bottom up, Moore said. Merritt said his issue was personal rights vs. protecting children. Harden had the same concern about interfering with an adults personal rights, stating, If they are over 18, they should have the right to choose. A couple students from SWAT spoke at the meeting and urged the commission to keep the ordinance in place. When the commission passed the ordinance originally, Wakulla Middle School SWAT President Andrew Walker said he was proud to live in Wakulla County. If the ordinance had remained, the county would have been one of the rst in the state to pass this type of ordinance. I felt like the Wakulla County Commission was saying that my health and the health of my friends was important to them, Walker said. Removing those products, was a huge step in keeping kids like me, tobacco free, he added. Commissioner Howard Kessler felt the commission should try to do whatever they can do reasonably to prevent youth from trying and using tobacco. I personally think we have a moral obligation to do something for our children, Kessler said. Merritt said he spoke with Hobby and they discussed the possibility of an ordinance that focuses on product placement, removing it from childrens eye level. There was a plan to reach out to those who would be affected and concerned citizens in the community to discuss their options. Commissioner Ralph Thomas said whatever they decide, it needs to directly hit the target and have the least amount of collateral damage as possible. Weve thrown a grenade at this and theres a whole lot of collateral damage, Thomas said. Merritt said it was well intended, but should have been vetted. Kessler has an agenda item for the next meeting on Feb. 4, that asks the commission to schedule a workshop relating to restrictions on the sale of tobacco products in the county.COUNTY COMMISSIONCandyavored tobacco ordinance is repealed Randy Merritt I think the unintended consequences outweighed the bene ts of it.Richard Harden I think its harmful to businesses and its impacting adults who use it.

The commission sent a letter of support for the Florida Department of Transportations consideration of designating the Highway 319 corridor from U.S. Highway 98 to the Tallahassee Regional Airport a Strategic Intermodal System. This is a positive step for Wakulla County, said County Administrator David Edwards. This designation comes from a recommendation from the District 3 of ce of FDOT and would increase funding for improvements on Highway 319 and also move those projects higher up on the FDOTs list, Edwards said. Commission Chairman Randy Merritt, who has been working with Edwards on getting the designation from DOT and support from the Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency, said this was how BluePrint 2000 in Tallahassee was able to leverage its funds, because of access to the airport. This should really help us get some funding, Merritt said. It affects funding and priority of funding, he added. Bryant Paulk, FDOT District 3 urban liason, said the inclusion would provide enhanced economic opportunities in Wakulla County, a Rural Area of Critical Economic Concern; the completion of the expansion of the Capital Circle roadway network; increased ability for the Tallahassee Regional Airport to reach out to regions south of Leon County and decreased travel time for both the traveling public and commercial traf c. The plan for the highly travelled 319 is to eventually make it four lanes and improve the high traf c intersections. Since the failure of Wakulla 2020, the initiative spearheaded by former Chamber President John Shuff that was taken from the idea for Blue Print 2000 in Tallahassee and would have included a halfcent sales tax increase to pay for transportation improvements, Merritt and Edwards have been working on different ways to try and move the project up on DOTs list. The four-laning of this road has been delayed numerous times by the DOT and is currently on a 20-year or so delay. The commission agreed to send the letter of support and will wait to hear back from DOT.Chipley Intermittent lane closures will occur Thursday, Jan. 31 on U.S. 319 (Crawfordville Road) beginning at State Road 267 and continuing two miles south in Wakulla County. A Florida Department of Transportation crew will perform evaluations on the roadway. Lane closures will remain in effect from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. All activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or re-scheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded to pay attention to the speed limit when traveling through the construction area, and to use caution, especially at night when driving in work zones.

Editor, The News: Congressman Steve Southerland was re-elected in November by a narrow margin by voters in our 2nd Congressional district. What many people didnt know, Im sure, was that he intends to oppose virtually every proposal of President Obama. Dont take my word for it: from the Orlando Sentinel (1/5/13): Steve Southerland of Panama City, rst elected in 2010 with tea-party backing, offered a de ant message full of Biblical references, hostility toward President Barack Obamas agenda, avowed opposition to any gun-control proposals, and the observation that he himself is part of a very thin line that stands between freedom and tyranny. As if to validate these statements: (1) Mr. Southerland voted against the so-called scal cliff deal, meaning he would have raised income taxes on everyone and not just the top 1-2 percent who ended up having to pay more. (2) He also appears to be against the comprehensive and reasonable school safety/mental health/gun control package the President unveiled last Wednesday, which was prompted by the horri c Sandy Hook massacre of innocent children in Connecticut. (3) From the Congressmans own website from Jan. 10: I believe we should be focused nationally on repealing the Presidents deeply awed health care law meaning not only is he against any cost-effective expansion of Medicaid in Florida that would save monies but he is still re ghting what has already been settled in Congress, the Courts and in the election, that Obamacare is the law of the land. Americans, including those in this district, voted to have bi-partisan government and its accompanying anticipated cooperation, not dug in opposition to everything. That wasnt the desired outcome. But it gets worse: Southerland just voted against Hurricane Sandy relief! Now everyone in this area knows weve had a number of major storms through here in the last 10-20 years-how much credibility is he going to have with the rest of the Congress and the Administration when inevitably there will be another storm here which will require disaster assistance? I think you know the answer to that already. I would urge you to let your Congressman know how you feel about whatever issues you are concerned about, let him know you are watching his actions closely, then do pay attention to how he actually votes and when 2014 comes around you will be well armed with the information necessary to make a truly informed decision as to whether he deserves to have his lease renewed on the peoples of ce for another term or not. John Hedrick Tallahassee Editor, The News: In our institutions of learning, common sense is all but dead. Here are two examples. This newspaper, if space permitted, could be lled with such illustrations. A 5-year-old girl (in Pennsylvania) has been denied two days of schooling. At rst her sentence was 10 days expulsion. Her misconduct? She expressed her wish to play with a friend by taking turns shooting soap bubbles at one another. The second example represents a slide into madness. Harvard Medical School researchers have asked for an adventurous woman to assist them in a project to bring back to life a Neanderthal man a type of early man assumed to have lived and become extinct some 30,000 years ago. Where is this woman, one that will agree to contribute her body for such a project? In our off-the-wall society, an idiot will probably appear. The with the soap-bubble gun was blessed to escape two days of liberal indoctrination. I hope parents can and will homeschool her to preserve her sanity. Sincerely, Patsy Jones Crawfordville Editor, The News: Children with tobacco; Is that the problem? Or is that a symptom of the problem? I recently voted to rescind an ordinance that limited the sale of tobacco in Wakulla County. It was referred to as a ban on candy- avored tobacco. When we hear the word candy, we automatically develop a mental picture of children. In truth, the ordinance went beyond candy and included a de nition that actually prohibited the sale of all tobacco products that contain any natural or arti cial avor, with the exception of menthol. Im not sure why menthol was excluded from the original ordinance. Is it less dangerous or less desirable to children? Do I think it is OK for children to use tobacco? Absolutely not! In fact, I am opposed to the use of tobacco by everyone, including adults. That is my personal belief, but I also believe that every adult should have the freedom to decide such matters for themselves. Across our great nation, there are groups of people who are so passionate about their choices that they have crossed the line and now want to force their choices onto you and me. Some communities have already banned the sale of fast foods, soft drinks above a certain size, and even the sale of natural milk. Some groups are calling for a ban on sugar and salt. Where does it end? Do we really want the government making these choices for us? Back to the children. Our children are precious gifts from God. Their impressionable minds absorb everything we teach them. As parents, we have the ability to model the behaviors we would like for them to emulate, or we can allow the in uences of the world to determine the adults they become. We can teach our children that harmful things exist in this world and also teach them how to make the best decisions to minimize the risk of harm, or we can try to hide the truth from them and hope they will never encounter harmful things. We can emulate and teach them that they have the ability to be strong and resist the temptation to succumb to the dangers of this world or we can teach them that they are weak without suf cient will power to protect themselves, while also teaching them to look to the gov ernment for protection. Parenting a child is possibly the most dif cult responsibility most of us will ever have. There is no substitute for a loving parent. There is no law that we can pass that will protect our children if we have not properly instilled strength to their character and equipped them to make wise decisions. This is just one mans opinion and I hope it will be an encouragement to our community. Ralph Thomas County Commissioner, District 1 By ALLISON DEFOOR The TCC Wakulla Environmental Institute (WEI) was born out of the depth of the environmental assets that God gave to Wakulla County and its surrounding area, and the vision of E.O. Wilson of Harvard University. He did his masters level work in this region, and knows it well, before going on to Harvard and becoming the worlds most prominent environmentalist. At his 80th birthday party, held at the 22nd oor of Floridas Capitol, he suggested that this region, because of its unique position between Gulf and Atlantic, mountains and sea, etc. was the fth hottest spot for biodiversity in North America. This surprised me a great deal, mostly because I was ignorant, but fortunately am a fast learner. As a trustee of TCC, and living in Wakulla, I wondered whether we might be in a position to capitalize upon this fact, and the rich and deep conservation resources of the region for education, conservation and economic development opportunities. Discussions began with the president and board, and over a short time led to the launch of the Wakulla Environmental Institute. Under the enthusiastic leadership of President Jim Murdaugh this nascent idea has blossomed. The simple vision was to do for the environment and Wakulla County what had been done for public safety with the Florida Public Safety Institute in Gadsden County. Under Murdaughs leadership, that small edgling police academy had blossomed into a huge success, with tens of thousands of students passing through annually. This success was largely responsible for his selection as president of TCC. The potential for WEI is at the same, or perhaps, an even greater level. The environmental assets, from Wakulla Springs on down, are world class. Thousands of acres of public lands, rich and diverse ecosystems, and now a committed lead college, TCC, with other nearby partners at hand, offer a rich canvas. Murdaugh was quickly able to capitalize and secure major funding of $4.5 million, and to steer it past a potential veto. Hundreds of acres of land for a campus have been secured. Partners, public and private, gathered. In sum, WEI has launched. In less than a generation, the impact upon Wakulla County and this entire region will be stunning. We have the bene t of having seen the effects of game changing foci like this one in other places. The marine sanctuaries around the globe, and noticeably close at hand in the Florida Keys, offer a template from which we can learn. They protect the environment, galvanize public knowledge and support, and become major economic engines, all in the context of levels which will promote sustainability. A win-win-win. I could not be more proud or feel more privileged than to have been a small part of venturing WEI into the world. Stand back, this baby is about to soar.Allison DeFoor is a Trustee of Tallahassee Community College and a member of the Wakulla Environmental Institute Advisory Committee. He has a varied background that includes a record of distinction in Conservation in Florida. As Everglades Czar to Gov. Jeb Bush, he helped assemble and launch the largest ecosystem restoration ever. He is a former Board member of the Florida Audubon, 1000 Friends of Florida and chaired the Florida Keys Land & Sea Trust. He is equally active in business and academia, and lately and increasingly in prison ministry at Wakulla Correctional Institution.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 Page 5ABy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netMud runs and tough mudder races have become quite popular the last few years, but the Sopchoppy Volunteer Fire Department has added an element that makes it a little different than the rest. Their version is for kids. The Sopchoppy Tough Little Mudder is for children ages 5 to 18 and will include several challenges along the 1-mile course. VFD Chief Joey Tillman approached the Sopchoppy City Commission at its Jan. 13 meeting to see if they could use the city park to hold the event. He already plans to obtain the one-day event insurance. This would be the second year for the run. The rst year was small and held on private property. Tillman said they were hoping to use the city park and get more people involved. Each three-person team must raise money to compete. The minimum pledge is $100. Individuals are $40. All proceeds go to the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation and the FSU Autism Institute. The commission agreed it was a worthwhile event and agreed to allow use of the city park. Tillman said the race will utilize the trail and will be non-evasive. The race will include several different challenges along the course, including Radical Ropes, Tunnel of Terra, Jungle Jog, Tired of tires, Slide of life, Faceboot Wall, Arctic Plunge and Sopchoppy Surprise. There will also be live music and free boat rides on the Sopchoppy River. City Clerk Jackie Lawhon said last years event was a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it. For more information, contact Tillman at bone shjoe@hotmail.com or call 566-2634. In other matters before the city commission: The city commission agreed to waive the kayak launching fee for members of the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network who will be in Sopchoppy on Feb. 2 to clean up debris in the river. Lawhon said the city agreed to co-sponsor the event and the group was hoping to not have to pay the fee. After years of discussion, the website for the City of Sopchoppy has finally launched. It has been completely redesigned and includes contact information for the city of ce and commission, as well as a list of upcoming events in the city, information for the public works department and city facilities. The website can be found at www.sopchoppy. org. The commission also discussed its newly acquired property across from city hall. The property was donated to the city and might be used as a trailhead for the Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail, if all goes as planned. The 11.63-mile multi-use trail will connect the beach at Mashes Sands to U.S. Highway 319 in Sopchoppy. Commissioner Lara Edwards said she walked the property recently and there are two old structures there that need to be broken down and hauled off. Theres also a need to clean out the underbrush, she said. This needs to be done so the city is ready if it receives funds to turn it into a small park or trailhead, she added. Its a mess, Edwards said. Lawhon said she would look into it and see what it might cost to clean up the property. The next meeting is Feb. 11.CITY OF SOPCHOPPYVFD plans Tough Little Mudder race for kidsSpecial to The NewsThe search is on for Floridas outstanding senior volunteer.

The drop in the unemployment rate also lowered the gap between the states jobless gure and the national number, which edged up to 7.8 percent in December. The difference between the state and the national unemployment number had been 0.4 percent in November. The unemployment rate was the lowest its been since November 2008, state of cials said. Currently, 749,000 Floridians are unemployed, with slightly fewer than 7.4 million people holding non-agricultural employment. Trends show that we are also experiencing growth in many different economic indicators that are key to job creation, Gov. Rick Scott said. Housing starts are on the rise, businesses and families continue to move to Florida and more jobs are being created. The changes we are making to improve our states business climate are helping Florida families pursue the American dream. The number of jobs in the state has actually increased by 54,900 over the last year. The number of non-agricultural jobs dropped by 15,300 since November, but state economists generally underscore the long-term trend in both numbers. While the unemployment rate for Florida is calculated using a survey by the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of jobs comes from a survey by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. December marked the 29th month where Florida had more jobs than it did a year ago. According to the Department of Economic Opportunity, the leisure and hospital industry added the most jobs over the last year, adding 29,900 positions for a 3.1 percent increase. Trade, transportation and utilities gained 22,200 jobs, while professional and business services tacked on 18,100 jobs and private education and health services added 13,200. The biggest drop came in the total government sector, with 10,600 jobs shed and construction, with a decrease of 6,800 jobs. The lowest unemployment rate in the state belonged to Monroe County, at 4.5 percent, while the highest went to Flagler County with 11.2 percent. DEO said three Florida counties now face double-digit unemployment rates, half of the number that did a month earlier. Unemployment at 8 percent Staff reportWakullas unemployment rate was up slightly in December to 6.2 percent from 6.1 percent in November but it was nearly two percentage points lower than a year ago, when the jobless rate was 8.1 percent. It was the fth lowest unemployment in Florida reported by the state. In neighboring Leon County, the jobless rate was 6.3 percent; and in Franklin County, it was 6.4 percent.Wakulla jobless rate is 6.2 percent Nominate outstanding senior volunteers 000DW5B ANN HENNESSY, MA, CCC-A CERTIFIED & LICENSED AUDIOLOGIST *Hearing evaluation and video otoscope inspection are always free.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR By BETSY GOEHRIGI will soon be getting a new haircut. Big deal. People do that every day. For me, its more than a hairstyle its a lifestyle. For the past 12 years, since 2001, I have been growing and donating my hair to Locks of Love. Please consider joining me Feb. 13, Wednesday, 12-8 p.m. for a FREE HAIRCUT if donating to Locks of Love, at Dazzles. Thanks to the hairdressers of Dazzles who are donating their time! Please call (850) 926-6772 for an appointment on Feb. 13th and tell them its for Locks of Love. Dazzles is located at 158 Ochlockonee St. in Crawfordville. Locks of Love hair donations go to provide wigs for children who have lost their hair due to a serious illness. Young girls are especially selfconscious about their looks during the adolescent years, which is magni ed with an illness resulting in baldness. Providing a wig for a child who cannot afford one is a simple, painless gift that can help brighten an otherwise dif cult time in that childs life. Why February 13th? This is the date I chose to do my donation and to promote this great cause because its Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. The season of Lent is a time of preparation for Easter a time when many give some personal sacri ce in honor of the One who gave the greatest sacri ce of all Jesus Christ who gave his life for us. So for me, this is an opportunity to help someone else and to bring glory to God. Anyone can donate any day of the year. It takes six to 10 ponytails to make one wig. It is my personal goal to donate six by 60 my donation Feb. 13th will be my fth ponytail donation. It is also my goal to share the word and encourage others to not only do a one-time donation but to do repeat donations to turn their hairstyle into a lifestyle of giving. I have friendsboth women and men and children in various parts of the country who are donating every two and a half years! The rst man who joined me is a friend from California, an American Indian, whose beautiful shiny black hair that he hadnt cut in years was long enough to make two donations from his 2-foot ponytail! I wish I couldmy hair just doesnt grow or I dont look good with short hair are some of the reasons people give for why they dont donate. When I ask how often they cut their hair, they usually respond every six to eight weeks. My answer is: Hair grows at an average of a half-inch per month. So if you are cutting an inch of hair every couple of months, you are maintaining your length. Try going longer between cuts. Turn to Page 15A By JAMES L. SNYDER One thing about me that has not changed all these years is that I refuse to waste my time on anything not important. There is too much to do in this world to waste time on unimportant things. This, however, sometimes gets me in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Do not let this get back to her, but I sometimes refer to it as the GMP syndrome. She is standing up about something and I am sitting in my easy chair not knowing what shes talking about. My wifes idea of what is important sometimes does not jibe with my sense of importance. The real problem is that I do not understand what she thinks is important and she, on the other hand, does not understand that I do not think it is important. On those rare occasions when our sense of what is important collides, we celebrate. That is what is important. She thinks she won, and I know I won. Does it really matter? Very few times in life do we both get what we want. When that happens she stands up and gloats, while I sit down and grin. I am not sure what the difference is between a gloat and a grin, but then, does it really matter? I must confess we are on a different wavelength at times. The only time our waves are synchronized is when I am driving out of the driveway and waving goodbye and her returning the jester. Do not get me wrong, we have been a marvelous working team for more years than I can remember. Of course, that does not mean anything because I cannot remember yesterday. However, we have worked together most marvelously for many years and I look forward to many more years of such marital shenanigans. In spite of that, we have our differences. One of the great differences we have is in the de nition of importance. It is a rare day in June when our de nitions are united in holy macaroni and cheese. It does happen though and we both revel in those moments. The thing that makes our relationship so marvelous and wonderful is that we allow the other person to have their differences. She is a broccoli [yuck] kind of a person and I on the other hand am an Apple Fritter kind of person. Looking out at the world, I notice a few things I just cannot stand for. Some do not make any difference one way or the other, while others really makes a difference. The problem is by the time we understand the signi cance of something we are too old to do anything about it. The Pennsylvania Dutch have a wonderful saying, We grow too soon old and too late smart. By the time we have grown enough to become smart about something that something is no longer in vogue. At my age, of course, I am learning that I cannot stand too long for anything. Out in the world of politics and religion, people are always coming up with solutions to nonexistent problems. It takes a good politician and religious person to spend a lot of time working on a solution of which there is no problem. Our world is full of problems, to be sure. It would be a rare day when people would get their heads together and work on problems. All we have today are solutions. The trouble is nding the right solution for the right problem. Only in politics and in religion can we spend all our time working on a solution that does not address any particular problem. As this stands today, I think I am just going to sit down and let it go by, because it will. My father taught me the most important thing in life was never to try to fix something that aint broken... or aint broken too bad. It is amazing what a little duck tape can do to put off xing something that is not broken too bad. Not every crack needs xing. I like surrounding myself with the wonderful sounds of silence. I do not even like talking to myself. I do not listen anyway so what is the use. Often in my life, I have regretted saying something, but never, to my knowledge, have I regretted keeping my mouth shut. Yes, I will stand up for some things, but many things I will just sit down and take it. No reason to get all riled up when what people are talking about is like a breeze on a summer afternoon. It comes for a moment and then it has gone, and where it goes, nobody knows. The apostle Paul knew what to stand for. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1). If you do not stand for something good, you will fall for anything, usually bad.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Blonzie Mills Carter, was embraced by her Savior during the bright afternoon hours of Jan. 24, 2013. Homegoing service is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 2, at 11a.m. at the Progressive Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Tallahassee. Public viewing begins Friday, Feb. 1, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Strong & Jones Funeral Home. Flowers may be sent to Strong & Jones no earlier than Friday. Sister Carter was born Jan. 6, 1934, in Sopchoppy to the late Arlee Simmons and Surry James Booth. She was educated in the schools of Wakulla County and Nashville, Tenn. While there, Sister Carter was employed as a housekeeper, and in her spare time sang in gospel groups that performed live radio music on Nashville stations. During that time she met her first husband, Jessie J. Ransom Sr., a member of the Traveling Israelites Quartet. Years later, after returning to the Wakulla area to live and work among family and friends, she met and married her second husband, John Mills Sr., a business owner and merchant in the Buckhorn area. Affectionately known as the Queen of Buckhorn, she was often seen working diligently in both the general store and caf that she and her husband owned. The two remained united until his death. In an effort to stay active, she involved herself in a number of odd jobs throughout the years. This included becoming a security guard, crossing guard, baker, crab-picker, crafter, crochet artist extraordinaire, nurses aide at the Wakulla Manor, and musician when her ngers and guitar would allow it. She obeyed the plan of salvation and was a faithful member of the Progressive Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Tallahassee, until her health began to fail. Those who will cherish fond memories of her include one daughter, Rachel Donaldson (Herbert Sr.); three sons, Lloyd, Floyd (Pauline) and Jessie (Rhonda) Ransom; one sister, Kathleen Arnett; aunt, Mariah Whitehurst; grandchildren, Herb Jr., Kevin, Michael, Felicia, Kimberly Nicole, Jennifer, Cynthia, Clifford, Floyd Jr. (J.B.), Shane, Frankie, Nicole and Tron; 36 great-grandchildren; her church family; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. She was predeceased by her son, John Eugene Mills Jr.; a sister, Betty Jean Hines; and husbands, Jessie J. Ransom Sr., John Mills Sr. and Joseph Carter. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 Page 7ABoyd W.

Billy Bishop, SMWFP chair, announced the February winners are Gail and Meryl Warren on City Park Drive as Yard of the Month, with Beach Trader receiving the Business of the Month recognition. The Business of the Month recognizes a local business, while the Yard of the Month will be awarded to a yard that has been improved greatly or continues to be an enjoyable place to view. We appreciate the recognition this award brings, and George and I are especially thankful for the support of the entire county of Wakulla, said Pam McCreery of Beach Trader. The recent downtown landscaping, lighting, benches and trash cans have given rise to the importance of community awareness, said Bishop. We have more and more folks coming down to visit our community, so its important to have our best foot forward. And, its a perfect time to get in step with VIVA Florida, the 500 anniversary celebration of Ponce de Leons arrival and exploration in Florida Other events coming up to showcase the community are the Keep America Beautiful American Cleanup March 1 through May 31 and National Arbor Day on April 25.

CHAT is participating in the Pepsi Community Caps Fundraiser and they need everyones help saving the specially marked yellow caps. Every cap is worth 5 cents and they can be found on participating brands in 16-ounce six packs, 20 ounces, 24-ounce six packs and 2 liters. The caps will be easy to spot. They are bright yellow and will be imprinted with Community Caps 5. This is a refreshing way to raise dollars and support our communitys effort to care for animals that come into the care of CHAT. With our economy being what it has been in recent years, caring for pets has been challenging to pet owners. Through membership fees, donations, fundraisers and grants, in 2011 CHAT provided more than $100,000 in spaying, neutering, medicine and veterinary care. For the past 10 years, CHAT provided all Wakulla County Schools third and fth graders with the educational Kind News publication at a cost of $1,000 yearly. Kind News is published by the Humane Society of the U.S. and encourages youth to co-exist humanely with animals, celebrate the human-animal bond, and become active in efforts to protect animals. CHAT assists Wakulla Animal Control with medical care and food, when needed. Once animals have been held at WAC for five days (as required by law), CHAT brings some of the animals into their care, depending on available space, for foster and adoption. Upon entering CHATs care, dogs are given shots for distemper, parvo, parain uenza, hepatitis, bordatella, wormed, tested for heartworms (and treated when necessary) and there after given monthly heartworm preventatives. Upon entering CHATS care, cats are tested for Feline Leukemia/Feline Aids and intestinal parasites and dewormed and vaccinated for rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia, chlamydia and leukemia. These steps assure when animals are adopted that they have been cared for medically as much as possible. One cap at a time will make a difference. One volunteers said, I guess Ill be dumpster diving for yellow caps now! Not that they encourage dumpster diving, but please save caps for CHAT and ask family and friends to do the same. Drop off collected caps at the Adoption Center, 1 Oak Street, just past the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce or in canisters located at area businesses. They will be collecting caps through the end of April. If anyone knows of an event that will be serving Pepsi products, call the shelter at 926-0890 and they will pass the information on to the volunteer dumpster divers. Having an event? Please consider serving Pepsi products in the bottles and provide a place at the event to collect the caps. They will be happy to provide signs. CHAT would like to thank Pepsi for providing them the opportunity to participate in the Pepsi Community Caps event. Together everyone can make a difference, one cap at a time! Their website is www.chatofwakulla.org and they are on Facebook as CHAT of Wakulla. Please LIKE them and SHARE their page so more folks will receive updates on the activities at the Adoption Center.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolTeachers and employee of the month are announcedSpecial to The NewsJanuary Teachers of the Month are Shadeville Elementary Schools Theresa Hernandez and Wakulla High Schools Ana Smith. The Employee of the Month is Facilities/ Maintenance Departments Josa Webster. Superintendent Bobby Pearce and the Wakulla County School Board applaud the dedication these employees bring to the District, as well as the loyalty they display on behalf of the students, schools, the profession of education and communities they serve. Theresa Hernandez began her teaching career 41 years ago. Fortunately for Wakulla County, 39 of the 41 have been at Shadeville Elementary School. After two years of teaching experience in Tallahassee and Key West, Hernandez was interviewed in 1972 by former Superintendent Bill Payne and was directed to go straight to Shadeville. Principal Matt Mathis welcomed her to Shadeville wearing overalls and covered with cement and paint because he was busy installing a new school sidewalk. During her 39-year career she has, trained several principals to include former Superintendent David Miller, HR Executive Director Karen Wells and current principal Susan Brazier. Hernandez graduated from Taylor County High School in Perry and was awarded her bachelor and masters degrees from FSU with major in education. Hernandez knows each child is unique. She said, As teachers, we just need to nd a way to tap into their uniqueness and discover how each child can learn best. Sometimes its simply compassion mixed with tough love. My goal is to teach so that my students yearn to learn. As the old proverb states, Give a man a sh and youll feed him for a day. Teach him to sh and youll feed him for a lifetime. Principal Susan Brazier adds, Mrs. Hernandez epitomizes the qualities of an outstanding classroom teacher. She is dedicated to the profession, caring and kind. She is always looking for a creative or unique way to teach her lessons. Students thrive academically and socially year after year under tutelage because of the nurturing learning environment she creates. She is also a favorite among parents. Her knowledge, experience, and competence are highly respected by all who work with her. Theresa Hernandez was born to teach. Ana Smith, Wakulla High School Spanish teacher, has been teaching since 2009. During her last semester at FSU, Smith was an intern and placed with Vicky Strickland. Franklin encouraged her to seek dual certi cation in English and Spanish. As the December Teacher of the Month, she credits Franklin for her sage counsel. Originally from New Port Richey, Smith attended and graduated from FSU. She hit the ground running at WHS and quickly immersed herself in many aspects of the school that include AVID, Reading Leadership, Puerto Rico Abroad, mentoring and the St. Lukes Team Fellowship. Integrating music throughout her lessons is one of the ways she enjoys teaching culture. Smith said, My students learn Merengue, Bachata, Salsa and even Waka Waka. Working with students is the reason I wanted to be a teacher. Our students have so much to offer the world, and I am so thankful to have the chance to teach, love and support them. Wakulla High School Principal Mike Crouch adds, Ana Smith is an enthusiastic, high energy teacher. She maintains the attention of her students when she teaches. It is not uncommon to see her cheering for her students, inside and outside the classroom, calling them by their Spanish equivalent names. She is an excellent teacher. Josa Webster serves as a custodian for Crawfordville Elementary School. Prior to working at Crawfordville Elementary School she worked at Riversprings Middle School. Webster is a product of the Wakulla County School District. She attended Shadeville and Sopchoppy Elementary School and graduated from Wakulla High School. Her dedication to the Wakulla School District and her love for children drew her interest to apply in 2002. The children at Crawfordville Elementary School are one of the most enjoyable things about my job, said Webster. She adds, I love to see their smiling faces in the lunch room each day. There are many occasions where I also see the students at Wal-Mart, Winn-Dixie or other places in the county. They introduce me to their parents as Jordans grandma and then say, She goes to my school. Crawfordville Elementary School Operations Foreman Billy Tully said, Josa has a can-do attitude. She enjoys her work and it shows in her every day performance of her duties. She is very dependable and takes pride in her work. Her willingness to help anyone, co-workers, teachers or students make her a valuable asset to the school district. Theresa Hernandez Josa Webster Ana Smith Shadeville Principal Susan Brazier, Envision representative, Elena Myhre and Assistant Principal DeeAnn Hughes Elena Myhre, art teacher at Shadeville Elementary School, received a grant of $500 from Envision Credit Union.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com -Janet By BROOKS HAMACHERContributor, Relish magazineNew Orleans, over the course of its history, has seen waves of immigration from all over the world. Spanish, French, American (thats right, at one time Americans coming to New Orleans were immigrants), Canary Island, Italian and Sicilian citizens all found their way to the Crescent City, and each group contributed to citys unique food culture. While most people are familiar with the poboy sandwich, so named as it was invented to feed cash-poor streetcar workers when they were on strike, not everyone is as familiar with another of the citys iconic sandwiches the muffuletta. The muffuletta was developed, as the story goes, by a Sicilian grocery store owner in New Orleans French Quarter. The sandwich itself is a complex combination of ingredients mortadella, hard salami, lean ham, mozzarella and provolone cheese, and olive mix (a delicious combination of pickled vegetables and spices), all organized between a 7-inch round of crusty Italian bread. There are a number of places around New Orleans that serve a good muffuletta, but for my money, you cant do much better than the place where it was invented Central Grocery on Decatur Street. Just across from the French Market, Central Grocery, an archetypal Italian grocery that has been in business since 1906, serves hundreds of these delicious mealson-a-roll each day. This sandwich can be made at home for those whose future travel plans dont include a trip to New Orleans. Alternatively, for the less adventurous, Progress Grocery in New Orleans ships both whole muffulettas or just the olive mix via their website at www.gourmetfoodmall.com. MUFFULETTA Olive Mix: 2 cups chopped pitted green olives with pimientos (10-ounce jar) 3/4 cup chopped black or kalamata olives 2 tablespoons chopped celery 3/4 cups chopped carrots 1/2 cup chopped cauli ower 1/4 cup chopped at-leaf parsley 1/2 cup c hopped red pepper 2 tablespoons capers 1/4 teaspoon celery seed 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano 1/2 t easpoon dried rosemary 3/4 t easpoon coarsely ground black pepper 1 1/2 t ablespoons white wine vinegar 3/4 cup olive oil Sandwich: 1 loaf round Italian bread 1 to 1 1/2 cups olive mix 1/4 pound sliced mozzarella cheese 1/4 pound sliced provolone cheese 1/4 pound lean ham, thinly sliced 1/4 pound hard salami, thinly sliced 1/4 pound mortadella, thinly sliced (can substitute good quality bologna) 1. To prepare olive mix, combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir well. Spoon into a 1-quart jar with lid. Refrigerate about 1 week before serving. Will keep almost inde nitely in the refrigerator. 2. To prepare sandwich, slice Italian bread evenly in half. Spread olive mix on both halves. Layer cheeses and meats evenly on top. Place two halves of sandwich together. Slice into wedges. Serves 8. Recipe by Brooks Hamaker. Per serving: 370 calories, 22g fat, 45mg chol., 20g prot., 24g carbs, 1g ber, 1220mg sodium.

RELISH THE AMERICAN TABLEBig Easy Sandwich MARK BOUGHTON PHOTOGRAPHYSpecial to The NewsIts the question we ask ourselves almost every day: Whats for dinner? The next time we make one of those supermarket pit stops, Dr. Eudene Harry, author of Live Younger in 8 Simple Steps, (www. LivingHealthyLookingYounger.com), would like us to veer in a new direction. When people shop on the go, they tend to gravitate toward old standbys and foods they can multipurpose with usually not the most nutritious choices possible. But by substituting a few items on your list, you can not only look and feel more youthful, youll boost your resistance to certain cancers and other illnesses. Here are ve food combos for shoppers with healthy eating on their minds: Tomato, garlic, chicken and almonds: Tomatoes contain one of the worlds most concentrated sources of cancer- ghting lycopene, which is best absorbed from tomatoes that are cooked. Garlic has been used for centuries for various health purposes and is a known free-radical destroyer. Nuts help to lose weight, maintain healthy blood pressure and support moods; almond crumbs are a great substitute for bread crumbs on chicken. Pair these goodies with whole wheat couscous for a full dinner. Pomegranate-Balsamic tempeh: With its high protein, fiber and isoflavones content, and meaty texture, tempeh is heavily utilized by vegetarians. Its made from soybeans processed in a manner similar to cheese making. Like tofu, tempeh takes on the avors with which it is cooked or marinated, including zestytangy balsamic vinegar perfect for accentuating salads. Mashed cauli ower gone Greek: Not only does the original yogurt have a thicker texture and richer taste, its also denser in lactobacilli, the healthy bacteria that may delay the onset of cancer. And yogurt is low in fat and high in protein, which is essential for many body functions, including building and repairing muscle tissue, organs, bones and connective tissue. Rather than add fatty, cholesterol- lled butter and sour cream to starchy potatoes that stick to your ribs, why not pair two healthy options with mashed cauli ower with Greek yogurt and fresh black pepper for simple goodness? Sushi: wild salmon, minced cucumbers, shredded carrots, kelp, sesame seeds and rice: A sushi roll is much more lling and satisfying than a nonsushi eater would think. Many grocery chains offer ready-made rolls, but they are also fairly easy to make. A bamboo roller is a great start; place a sheet of nutrient-dense kelp as the rst thing on the roller, and add, lengthwise, desired ingredients. Your rst try is not likely to be perfect, but the tasty and healthy ingredients will be there. Fruit salad for dessert: Bring together chopped apples, strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon and pineapple with blueberries and grapes for a sweet and juicy postdinner palate-cleanser. Lemon juice prevents fruits from bruising. If thats not enough, combine the salad with Greek yogurt perhaps blended with vanilla or almond extract and fiber-filled granola for a parfait.5 Grocery staples for youth, vitality SKYBOX WE ARE Celebrating SER VING Y O U!Y EARS11We are now smoke free HORSESHOE BOWL XI 10AM ........................................Sign Up 11AM ......................Tournament Begins 2-5 PM .....................Live Entertainment 4-6 PM ..............................Tailgate Party 6:07 PM ...................Super Bowl XLVII Halftime .....................Games and Prizes FEB. 3 2581 Crawfordville Hwy.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 Page 11Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBy MARJ LAW When you see someone at the range dancing around, pulling at his clothing, youre probably watching a version of the Hot Shell Watusi. This is a dance well known on the line, usually reserved for those who are wearing clothing not conducive to safety on the range. Clothing choices are now safety hazards? You betcha. The Hot Shell Watusi happens when someone fires a semi-automatic. The bullet rides up the magazine into the ejection chamber. The bullet explodes out of the barrel when someone pulls the guns trigger. The brass or other metal bullet casing ips out of the ejection chamber. And, if youre to the right of this shooter, you are in the perfect position to have this piece of very hot brass y at you. Very hot brass. This is when you thank the deputies at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Range for making sure you are wearing eyes otherwise called safety glasses. You sure dont want a hot piece of metal smack into your eye. A hat, cap, or visor with a bill or brim can keep the casing from sliding down behind your glasses. So, even though the shooting line is covered with a roof, its a good idea to wear something with a brim. Yes, a hot casing can still y at your cheek. It burns. You slap at your face. Thats one step of the Hot Shell Watusi. And can you imagine Mr. Studly sporting a shirt with four buttons undone? That V in his shirt is a perfect landing spot for hot brass. This is when you see the full Range Watusi. You see Studly yanking his shirt out of his pants and dancing around to dislodge the hot shell that slid down that deep V. Even a T-shirt with a nice V-neck draws the metal casing like a magnet. Ow, ow, ow. You dont want to do this dance. The way to avoid it is to wear a close- tting shirt with a high neckline. We get really hot days in Wakulla County. Most of us have several pair of ip- ops because they keep your feet cool. But you dont want to wear these at the range. The brass casings are not cold by the time they hit your feet. And, speaking of feet, the top of our feet tend to be quite sensitive. Then youre back doing that Watusi. Its safer to wear shoes that protect your feet than wearing ip- ops. I wont tell you not to wear shorts in the summer here. They do leave your legs unprotected from ying brass, but at least the casings will bounce off. Our face and feet generally are hurt more by flying shells than arms or legs. Avoid those sneaky shells by wearing close- tting shirts, glasses, hats and shoes. Dont let anyone catch you doing the Hot Shell Watusi.Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid gunner in her retirement. HOME ON THE RANGEDont get caught doing the Hot Shell Watusi Special to The NewsIn the birding world, few species generate more excitement than the Purple martin, a swallow that is arriving now in Florida, with reports of scouts logged almost daily online. Purple martins, the largest of the swallows in North America, are totally dependent on man-made housing east of the Rockies and faithfully return to the same locations each year, so its understandable that human landlords anxiously await the return of their birds from wintering grounds in South America. Some of the earliest arrivals to North America trickle into south Florida as early as late December prior to the new nesting season and dates/locations are watched by martin enthusiasts throughout the breeding range in the eastern United States and in Canada. Arrivals are posted on an online database at www.purplemartin.org, maintained by the Purple Martin Conservation Association, a nonpro t conservation organization. Initially arrivals in Florida tend occur in south Florida, but can occur randomly throughout the state well into the spring months. Among recent arrivals: Jan. 1 in Fort Myers, Jan. 9 in Plant City and Jan. 17 in Jacksonville. The rst wave consists of adult martins those 2 or more years old, with adult males sporting full dark-purple color. Females are a bit drab, with a gray breast. One-year-old martins, called subadults, arrive sixto eight weeks later than the older birds. Purple martins prefer to nest in colonies in gourds hung from large racks and in multi-compartment birdhouses. The birds nest throughout Florida with the only exception being in the Keys. Purple martins feed on the wing taking insects from the air and early arrivals sometimes face the prospect of starvation when cold snaps clear the air of insects. Generally, purple martins spend the winter over a wide range of Brazil. Whether the Florida population joins northern populations in the same wintering locations is unclear. This nesting season the PMCA will place geolocator tracking devices on adult purple martins at select colonies in the state to hopefully learn more. Floridas purple martin population is more numerous than most states to the north but has shown a steady decline over several decades. Because the species is totally dependent on human-provided housing, reduced numbers sometimes can be attributed to declining tradition of erecting housing in some localities.Purple martin time in Florida: Landlords report scouts onlineSpecial to The NewsiFish Florida is now available for iPhone and iPad, featuring detailed info on more than 4,000 water bodies across Florida.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comWith the passage of the Auxiliary legislation on October 1996, the Auxiliarys role was been greatly expanded to enable Auxiliary participation in any Coast Guard Mission authorized by the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard. In general, this law opened all Coast Guard mission areas to the Auxiliary, with the exception of combat (military operations) and direct law enforcement. However, the main role the Auxiliary plays in that mission remained in two major categories as stated in a memorandum to Congress in 1944. The primary purpose of the establishment of the Coast Guard Auxiliary was to indoctrinate all owners and operators of small craft in safety requirements in the operations and navigation of small craft. A secondary purpose of the institution on the Coast Guard Auxiliary was to utilize the Auxiliary craft and personnel, after suitable training and indoctrination in carrying out certain duties of the Coast Guard with particular inference to those concerned with the safety of Navigation. The Auxiliarys four cornerstones are: recreational boating safety, operations and marine safety, recreational boating safety member services and fellowship the glue that holds the Auxiliarys missions and its members together. Recreational Boating Safety has been the main focus in recent years and is accomplished in our area by providing free vessel safety checks, our public education classes and maintaining our marine dealer programs. As you may have read in the last few columns, Flotilla 12 recently had its rst class of 2013. Mark Rosen submitted the following The rst About Boating Safely course of 2013 was presented by local Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 12 at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Jan. 26. The purpose of the class was twofold. First to educate recreational boaters about the need for safety on the water and second, to ful ll the mission of the Auxiliary, to conduct through public education, the promotion of safe boating. Instructors from the Auxiliary included Tim Ashley, Bob Asztalos, Alexander Gulde, Chuck Hickman, Rich Rasmussen, Mark Rosen and Duane Treadon. Also, Capt. Tom Shipp and Lt. Seth Wagner from FWC provided the legal requirements of boating. Other subjects included Boating Emergencies, Trailering, Fuel and Fire Safety, Navigating the Waters, and using the VHF radio. On completion of the course and a test, the students were awarded their Florida Boating Safety Education Card. Seven students took and passed the test, which means there are seven boaters who are safer when they are out on the water! While some may not feel that seven students makes the day of work and hours of prep time worth the effort, it is the belief of the Auxiliary that if we can save one life or make a day on the water safer for a boater, it is all worth the effort! Thank you to Duane Treadon for submitting photos from the class. This weekend, Flotilla 12 will be participating in the Wildlife Heritage and Outdoors Festival at the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge. Stop by and see us! Other members will be traveling to Station Destin for the Winter Division Meeting. More on those next week. And as Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident.

Crustacean Condominiums Two decades ago, Dr. Bill Lindberg of the University of Florida and I at Florida State collaborated on a Sea Grant study into crustacean reproductive strategies, by rst building an arti cial reef that would attract our target species. We chose the Stone Crab for obvious economic reasons and expected community support (or so we thought). I set to build what we thought would attract this crab after discussions with local crabbers in St. Marks and Cedar Key. Our presentation on the topic in Wakulla County was met with considerable push-back, ultimately informing us that if we tried, the shrimpers would drag the sites and destroy them. Taking the hint, we moved the research entirely to Cedar Key. We spent the rst summer building reef modules underwater out of broken cinderblock with a rebar mast in the middle. Mother nature pushed back as well, by sending us a hurricane that sat on the site for several days and buried it under three to six feet of sand. My father, a civil engineer, reminded us of Archimedes Law, that states that an object is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced material it occupies. In this case it was concrete in sand. Our reefs were heavy and easily sunk. His design was a oating block that would ride over the sand that hurricanes move. The next winter I set to constructing reef modules or condominiums at the Hensen Wood & Hoe (HWH) cinderblock facility at Four Points, south of Tallahassee. The module contained holes on all lateral faces, elevated enough to keep the sand out and oat the unit on the sea oor. HWH donated more blocks and let us assemble wooden forms to contain surplus concrete. Each module cost us 50 cents each because of industry and student cooperation. Soon we had more than 250 modules, loaded up on several at bed railroad cars and shipped to Cedar Key. They were loaded on a barge and dropped at the same coordinates of the previous reef the next summer. For three years, we studied this reef underwater and found we could attract up to 10 crabs in our meter square module during the winter. During the summer, their residency was considerably less but more a matter of food limitations than mating strategies. Single modules developed a halo in the sand around them, where the crabs would forage during the night. All of the halos were roughly the same radius suggesting when they ran out of food in the sand in a comfortable distance from the protective module, they moved on. Assemblages of modules had the same radius out from the collective pile as the single module. The Crab Condominiums also attracted octopus occasionally, dispelling the crabs temporarily. Large sh also occupied the reefs suggesting a typical arti cial reef community would ultimately develop and our exclusive habitat would develop greater predatory pressure. I suggested a scare sh oating device that might chase octopus away, since we were farming the sea, but it was never tried. This research reef still oats on the sand today, just as productive as it was during our study, and still used by UF students to study reef dynamics. The results of our research are published under Florida Sea Grant Publications.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 Page 13ABy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Jan. 25 A key piece of Gov. Rick Scotts agenda fell into place this week, as lawmakers returned to the Capitol for a shortened week of committee work. With Monday marking the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Legislature didnt start its nal working week of January until Tuesday. But they had plenty to talk about, from what will become one of the more attention-grabbing parts of Scotts 2013 legislative agenda to what to do about landmark insurance legislation. And ethics reform and a new set of changes to pensions for state employees were also on deck. Meanwhile, there was also an ongoing series of questions from a newspaper about a dog that used to live at the Governors Mansion, but now doesnt. BIGGER CHECKS FOR TEACHERS? Throwing a bone to some of his most vocal critics, and hoping to fetch some good headlines at the same time, Scott spent most of the week promoting a plan to give every full-time public school teacher a $2,500 raise. Scott didnt mark exactly how the state would pay for the $480 million item. I believe in merit pay, I believe in measurement I believe in accountability, Scott told reporters Wednesday. Were going to continue to work on that, but right now the right thing to do is across the board pay raises for all of our full time teachers. The Florida Education Association, the largest teachers union in the state, didnt sniff at the proposal, but also didnt exactly wag their tails. FEA said it was encouraged while snarling about recent moves to require teachers and state employees to contribute 3 percent to their own retirement. But this is a step in the right direction because investing in public schools and the people who work in them is the way to create the workforce of the future, FEA President Andy Ford said in a statement issued following the announcement. This begins to repair the damage that has been done to our students and those who work in our schools. Republican lawmakers sent signals that they might not simply roll over for the proposal, with some voicing concern about the cost and that an across-the-board increase could undermine the progress toward paying teachers based on student performance. Everybody believes we need to nd a way to continue to fund our teachers and give them more resources, said House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel. I do believe that the Florida House has a pretty strong opinion with regard to how to fund it and certainly we believe merit pay is an area that we should be looking at very closely. Democrats said Scott was just looking to score political points. Its almost an affront to their intelligence, said Rep. Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach. Waving dollars after a clear anti-public education agenda and expecting to them to jump on the Scott bandwagon. Public educators know where he stands. DOG BITES MAN All this discussion of serious policy came against a backdrop of one of the stranger stories of recent months. The Tampa Bay Times a week ago had casually asked someone in the governors of ce what happened to a dog the governor adopted a while back. The dog, Reagan, is no longer living in the Governors Mansion, the newspaper was finally told after some initial dodging on the crucial matter. Critics of the governor howled that it was a ne thing to adopt the dog to get some good press and then get rid of it. But this week the Times reported that Reagan was a great communicator of his displeasure at being adopted by the governor. He barked at people and nally, the governors of- ce acknowledged, he bit someone. Not a grrreat addition to the mansion. So the Scotts returned the dog and its now living on a ranch somewhere. And its now called Pluto. DEVIL IN THE DETAILS There was another odd item this week. A guy said Satanists would be rallying for Gov. Scott at the Capitol because they like that he supported a bill allowing anyone including Satanists to lead prayers at schools. It turns out the man is trying to make a mocumentary but he and a couple other people showed up at the Capitol Friday wearing funny clothes and had their pictures taken. EXCHANGES AND ETHICS While they continued to chew on Scotts teacherpay proposal, lawmakers were also busy dealing with weightier issues, from how to deal with the federal health-care law of 2010 now certain to survive after President Barack Obamas re-election to how to keep legislators themselves on their best behavior. Michael Cannon, director of health policy studies at the libertarian Cato Institute, and Jonathan Gruber, an economics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who consulted with the Obama Administration on the federal law, squared off in front of a Senate committee studying whether Florida should set up a healthinsurance exchange. Under the federal health law, each state will have such an exchange to act as a sort of online market where people will be able to shop for insurance coverage. Depending on income levels, many people will be eligible for subsidies to buy insurance through the exchange. Gruber said the best approach would be for Florida to let the federal government establish the exchange but enter a partnership in which the state could help determine the insurance choices available to residents. He said the states role doesnt have to be all or nothing. Let the federal government do the heavy lifting, let them do the programming, let them do the incredibly hard work, but dont abdicate your responsibility to your citizens to make sure theyre getting the best choices and to evaluate the choices that are made, to study that and learn over time, Gruber said. Cannon said he thinks the state should refuse to create an exchange. But he said even if lawmakers are interested in running an exchange, they should hold off on making a decision about the issue. Theres nothing in here for you but headache, Cannon said. But look, if you disagree, then I think the safest thing is to just take a waitand-see approach. Maybe wait a year, maybe wait two years. Let the federal government operate the exchange. Elsewhere, the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee unanimously approved a measure that supporters called the most expansive overhaul in decades of the rules that elected of cials have to follow. The bill (SPB 7006) would limit the jobs elected officials could take with state agencies, give the Ethics Commission more power to collect nes and strengthen con ict-of-interest laws. It would also strengthen rules against the revolving door by barring elected of cials from taking jobs with any rm that primarily lobbies or from representing anyone before executive agencies. You have a guy whos a presiding officer one year, doing agency budgets and controlling life or death of agencies and what they do and their programs, and the next year hes lobbying them? You know, one day after he leaves as speaker or president and hes going to lobby them? said Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, in a clear swipe at former House Speaker Dean Cannon -who has announced he will do so. A BLANK CHECK OR A MISSING PROBLEM? The w eek also brought more fallout from the Florida Supreme Courts decision upholding the state law requiring employees to pay into their own pensions. Standard & Poors and Moodys both gave the state a metaphorical pat on the head for the change. The budget relief for local governments will be signi cant at a time when weakened property valuations continue to negatively affect fiscal operations, a statement from Moodys said. The majority of local governments report personnel expenses as their largest expense. In a move that might have happened even without the decision, the House began a push to place all future state employees into a 401(k)-style retirement plan. The draft legislation would require all state employees hired after Jan. 1, 2014 to enter a de nedcontribution plan instead of the defined-benefit plan that most state workers currently join. Supporters say the plan will make the retirement plan more predictable and takes the state off the hook. There will no longer be a blank check written by the taxpayers, said House Government Operations Subcommittee Chairman Jason Brodeur, R-Sanford. Critics of the measure say it could cost state taxpayers additional money, beginning with $150 million next year and escalating to $450 million within three years. The state would continue to pay until 2018, they said. We are looking at potentially billions of dollars in taxpayer revenue simply to x a system which were still not sure what the problem with that system is, said Rich Templin of the AFL-CIO. SUGAR LEASES NOT SO SWEET FOR ENVIRONMENTALISTS Also this week, Scott and the Cabinet granted 30-year leases to a pair of sugar growers over the objections of environmental groups that urged the panel to approve much shorter terms for the tracts that drain into the Everglades. By unanimous vote, the panel approved the renewal of leases for Florida Crystals and A. Duda and Sons on separate tracts totaling more than 13,000 acres in the Everglades Agricultural Area. In exchange the companies have agreed to sell parcels that water management district of cials say they need now. Melissa Meeker, executive director of the South Florida Water Management District, told Cabinet members the lease deals were critical to ongoing negotiations between the district and the companies for tracts needed for shovel ready projects on parcels adjacent to land the state already owns that impact the Everglades and the Caloosahatchee River. You are considering what I consider the critical pieces of two distinct public interest projects, Meeker said. But environmentalists say the length of the leases is of particular concern. You are the landlord and it is your right and your duty to insist that the tenant maximize their efforts to reduce the impact of the land, said Audubon of Florida Executive Director Eric Draper. The lease extensions preclude your ability to insist upon that accountability. STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov. Rick Scott proposes a $2,500 pay raise for full-time public school teachers, drawing quali- ed praise from teachers unions and complaints from some Democrats that the move was targeted at Scotts 2014 re-election campaign. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Im sure there are those who would consider this to be a political move. I cant judge the governor on that but what I can say is that it is good for public education to recognize teachers in this manner. Sen.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comThe cold and u season has arrived with a vengeance in Wakulla County, recent spring like weather notwithstanding. The symptoms range from the inconvenient to extreme discomfort. One universal symptom is respiratory distress. It is bad enough to feel achy and endure a temperature, but the stuffed head and chest creates abject misery in the unlucky sufferer. Fortunately, early 21st century medical options will relieve many of the respiratory symptoms until the virus runs its course. Every retailer and pharmacy has shelves lined with the latest approved treatments for this seasonal plague. One of the favorite treatments with a long standing reputation for effectiveness at relieving stuffiness is camphorbased rubs and inhalers. The positive effects are immediate, but the rubs must be liberally applied to sustain the result. Camphor oil, the basis for the seasonal respiratory relief, is the product of camphor trees which can be found on many old homesteads in Wakulla County. This exotic tree is native to east Asia where it has a long history as a highly prized resource. In the early days of sea travel and international trade, the camphor trees products were quickly recognized by enterprising European explores as a revenue source. The spice cinnamon is derived from its bark. Camphor lumber was the material of choice for sea chest and other storage containers for clothing and textiles. It has the enviable trait of repelling moths and it resists the decaying effect of seawater on wood. History does not record which explorer got the idea for using the decongestant features of camphor. It could be reasonably assumed it was a lucky happenstance of a seaman suffering a head cold who, out of desperation, sought out a local medical arts practitioner. The conversation may have gone something like this: Ive got a bad head cold, doctor, said the sailor. Crush two handfuls of these leaves under your nose, breathe deeply and call me in the morning, said the doctor. It worked. The reputation of camphor spread rapidly based on the positive results. Over time camphor trees were planted in colonies with latitudes relatively near the equator. It was better to have a local source of leaves rather than waiting for the next shipment. Camphor trees reached the southeastern U.S. in the early 18th century. Most plantations and remote homesteads had at least one tree. Camphor leaves easily t into the practice of using a poultice for medical purposes. A poultice is a small bag suspended from the neck of the patient as a means of administering a treatment. Local folk medicine varied from place to place. Some treatments were just pungent and some were absolutely repulsive, but most contained camphor leaves. Today camphor trees in Wakulla County are relics of a long past self-reliant lifestyle. In Florida the camphor tree is treated as an invasive plant and can produce thickets which choke out native vegetation. Its fruit is attractive to birds and can spread rapidly.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 31, 2013sports news and team views SportsBy CONNOR HARRISONwakullasports.comThe Wakulla War Eagles boys basketball team faced the Rickards Raiders on Thursday, Jan. 24, and it ended with the Raiders letting the clock run off, leaving the final score 52-40. At halftime the score was 24-15, with Rickards holding on to the lead. Wakulla outscored the Raiders in the third quarter, but only by two points; 14 to 12. The War Eagles didnt have enough depth to keep outscoring the Raiders. As they went deeper into the game, Wakulla started showing signs of fatigue, letting Rickards outscore them 16 to 11. The closest that this game got, after the rst quarter that is, was in the third quarter with about four and a half minutes remaining and the game was tied at 24. By the end of the third quarter the score was 36 to 29, in favor of the Raiders. After breaking the tie with the War Eagles, the Raiders never looked back and held the lead all the way to the nal buzzer. The game started off fast, with each team scoring quickly scoring a basket each, leaving the game tied at 2. After this fast start, the pace slowed down momentarily, but that didnt last too long. The free throw shooting began rather early not even halfway through the rst quarter. Rickards started off rst from the free throw line with 5:26 left in the first quarter, and the Raider shooter made the first one, but missed the next one. Wakulla nally got on to the free throw line about halfway through the rst quarter. Bryson Beverly sank the rst attempt but couldnt get the second one in. Once again, the Raiders were headed back to the free throw line to take a couple of shots, and they took full advantage of that opportunity and nailed both of them. The game was pretty close in the low scoring rst quarter, leaving the score at 10-7, Rickards up. In the second quarter, the Raiders went on a 6-0 run to start the second, putting them ahead 16-7. Wakulla nally got the chance to score by means of a foul. At the free-throw line was Sheldon Johnson, who made the rst one, but put too much power into the second one and it bounced off the backboard. The ball was rebounded by Corion Knight who was fouled when he got the ball, giving Knight the chance to put up a couple of points. Knight got the rst one, but couldnt quite get the second one to fall. Rickards called a timeout with 3:43 left in the half, and the score was 16-9 with the Raiders leading. Before the half was over, Rickards was able to put up some points in a hurry, scoring eight points in about two minutes. The War Eagles did some scoring on their own as well, putting up six points. This left the score at 24-15. Wakulla came out of the half on re, putting up a 9-0 run, eventually tying the game at 24 with four and a half minutes left in the third quarter. The Raiders stopped Wakullas run and put up 5 quick points until Rickards fouled Dontavius White. White went to the free-throw line and missed the first one, but made up for it by making the next one. Shortly thereafter Wakulla was fouled again, this time Patrick Harvey went to the line con dent and sunk both of his attempts. Beverly followed up with a layup to cut the lead to two. This is as close as it would get for the remainder of the game as the Raiders pulled far enough away that Wakulla didnt have a chance to comeback. This game ended district play, it also left the War Eagles winless in their district.BASKETBALLWar Eagles fall to Rickards, go winless in district WRESTLERS: Wakulla War Eagles Wrestling team defends the City Championships Title.
