He was remembered as a kind man who cared deeply for others and was always willing to help. He was also recalled as someone who sincerely loved Wakulla County and saw the potential for its promotion as a destination for eco-tourism. To that end, he and several partners built the Inn at Wildwood in 2005 as part of that vision. The dream would end badly the real estate bubble burst in 2007 and brought down the economy, and Barry and his partners would lose the hotel in a foreclosure in 2009. Filmmaker Robert Seidler, who shared Barrys vision of a green future for Wakulla, called Barry an innovator, adding that like a lot of innovators, he didnt reap the bene ts. He was probably 10 years too early, Seidler said of Barrys push for Wakulla as a green destination. He was a visionary character for this county, Seidler said. The bigest thing: he got where the real value in Wakulla County lies natural resources. The Inn at Wildwood re ected that. The Rev. Bob Huguenin, an Anglican priest who spoke at Barrys funeral on Saturday at Culleys Funeral Home in Tallahassee, remembered Barry as a wonderful organizer and tremendous fundraiser. He did such a service for Rotary and United Way. He did things like organize groups to build handicapped ramps. He also helped Huguenin with his prison ministry, helping supply money for books and materials for inmates, and gave some inmates jobs when they got out. He never bragged to anybody about the things he did, Huguenin said, adding that much of what Barry did for people in the community may not be known. When he found a person usually a poor person, an elderly lady, who needed a hot water heater or something hed send his guys over there to make sure it got done. Fix the hot water heater or roof or door or whatever. He was a pretty good guy, he said.

Local business owner Ronald Fred Crum called the meeting to allow residents to voice their opinion and ask questions about the potential new business. About 60 people lled the backroom of Poseys Steam Room on Jan. 31 to hear from Columbia Technologies Inc. President Paul Yatsko and and learn about his material recovery facility (MRF). Yatsko said the idea to locate the facility in Wakulla County came because of his relationship with Tallahassee Community College and its Wakulla Environmental Institute. There is a need for specialized workers for his company. The whole point of the MRF is to not put trash in a land ll. We arent a land ll, Yatsko said. We dont compete with land lls. Trucks would drive trash to this facility and it would be sorted into nine or 10 categories of recyclable materials. Yatsko said the facility would also make re-engineered fuel. Crum said he heard about Yatsko and his business and reached out to him to learn about the positives and negatives of having the facility in Panacea. There were a lot more positives than negatives, Crum said. Yatkso said there would be 67 jobs available at Columbia Technologies. Crum said he has been looking for ways to help the fishermen in the county and this could be a possibility. Youve got to give these people some hope, Crum said. The negatives would be the increase in trucks on the roadways and the possible smell. The location Yatsko expressed interest in is Southpointe Industries property located at 872 Coastal Highway in Panacea. Several people expressed concern over that location because it sits on a wetland. Local business owner Steve Fults was given a chance to speak at the meeting and expressed his opposition to the project.Turn to Page 3AGarbage sorting facility in Panacea?New sheri says transition has been smooth Idea stirs controversy; not clear if support is thereBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIt has been a month since Sheriff Charlie Creel took over the reigns at the sheriffs of ce and so far it has been a smooth ride. I basically just changed of ces, Sheriff Creel says. After Creel received the majority of votes in the Nov. 6 election over Maurice Langston, then-sheriff Donnie Crum offered him an of ce at the sheriffs of ce and allowed him to sit in on important meetings, which made for an easy transition, Creel says. Im just excited to be here, Creel says. I love coming to work. He also had a transition team come in to look at the organization of the entire of ce and perform a review from the top to the bottom. One of the major things he learned from that report was how much money is saved because of the work of the maintenance department. This department is a team of four who serve as carpenters, auto mechanics, plumbers, electricians, painters, etc. They are a jack of all trades, Creel says. I cant say enough about these guys. To learn even more about where money is being saved, and possibly, where money is being wasted, a budget and inventory audit is currently being performed. I want to see if we can improve in any areas, Creel said. Under my watch, we arent going to waste money. He commended Mary Dean Barwick, the sheriffs of ce nance director, for her control of the budget. She runs a tight ship, he says. Shes a saver. Barwick says the trick is keeping the spenders in line. Creel says he plans to always be involved in the budget and know where the money is going. He reviews and signs all purchase order requests, no matter the dollar amount.Prior to the budget meetings with the county commission, Creel says he plans to sit down with each commissioner individually and go through the sheriffs of ce budget.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThis year marks the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leons arrival in Florida in 1513. To celebrate this milestone, one man has set out on his own adventure of discovery. On Jan. 1, Justin Riney of Vero Beach left Pensacola to begin a 365-day exploration of Floridas coastline and waterways via paddleboard called Expedition Florida 500 or XF500. Riney said he and his team, which consists of people from his organization Mother Ocean, Quicksilver and other organizations, wanted to celebrate Floridas history and use this event to raise awareness about preserving and protecting its waterways. XF500 has partnered with Viva Florida 500, the statewide initiative that will highlight the states history, places and events throughout the year. Riney said they decided to incorporate paddleboarding to appeal to a wider audience. While educating people about the history of the coastline, they are also stressing the importance of conservation, he says. Water is our most valuable resource, Riney said. They want to make sure these waterways are preserved and protected so that they are here to celebrate in the next 500 years and so on, he said. Lets celebrate the states waterways, Riney said. Along his travels, Riney has stopped in several coastal communities to host a beach cleanup and community paddle. On day 33, he was in St. Marks and held a cleanup at Dickerson Bay with Keep Wakulla County Beautiful. Following the cleanup, he attended the Wildlife Heritage and Outdoors Festival at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. He then joined 12 others from around the area for a community paddle to the lighthouse. Upon his arrival to the lighthouse, Riney was greeted by Secretary of State Ken Detzner. The pair was there for a signature event of Viva Florida 500 to answer questions about the partnership, as well as take a tour of the lighthouse and the saltworks. Nobody is spending as much time with our natural resources, Secretary Detzner said of Riney. Detzner said he admired Rineys courage and sense of adventure, which mirrored that of Ponce de Leon. Except Riney has a modern-day sense of discovery. Its an honor to have him here, Detzner said. Hes talking about the history of our coastline and how important it is. While Detzner remembers coming to the lighthouse during his college days at Florida State University, this was the rst visit for Riney. I love it, Riney said of the area. This place has areas that are completely undeveloped and that is what they are trying to protect, he said. Thats where my heart is, he said. For the majority of his tour, Riney is on his own, living off the land. However, if someone offers him a place to stay, he doesnt turn it down. And the people he has met along the way have been amazing, he said. While on his tour, he is using social media to connect with his audience. He blogs and posts pictures and videos along the way. If they feel a part of it, they will have more of a desire to protect it, Riney said. Following his visit to St. Marks, Riney set out to paddle through the Big Bend. His tour of the coastline will end July 4 in Jacksonville. The remainder of the year will be spent inland, along the rivers, lakes, estuaries and marshland ending on Dec. 31 in Tallahassee.

Don Henderson said he rst met Barry back in the 1980s while working at a mortgage company in Tallahassee, and he later negotiated the deal for Barry to buy Executive Suites in Tallahassee, a 119-room hotel that was bought, remodeled and sold at a good pro t. In the early 2000s, Henderson said Barry was operating J.C. Barry Realty in Crawfordville and asked him to come down to Wakulla and work with him. I got my (real estate) license and went to work with him. Of the Inn at Wildwood, Henderson said, He put that together with the idea that he was going to promote gol ng, kayaking, shing, and so forth. Henderson, a longtime Rotarian, said it was Barry who got him in Rotary. Barry served as sergeantat-arms in the club in the 1990s a post Henderson has now held for several years. Barry was named Rotarian of the Year in 1999. Barry was named the Wakulla Chamber of Commerces Man of the Year in 2002. He was also involved in Keep Wakulla County Beautiful. Joe was just a mover and shaker and just had a lot of energy, Henderson said. He was just a great guy he loved the community and believed in Wakulla County and he tried to do for the county as much as he could. Huguenin recalled years ago, holding a garage sale to raise money as part of Rotarys Valentine Celebration. I have fond memories of Joe, Jack Burton and myself loading a trailer and having a garage sale taking everybody elses junk, he said with laugh. Seidler recalled that Barry was instrumental in getting the Green Guides program going at Tallahassee Community College, and helped fund scholarships for students. That effort by Barry really served as the catalyst to get the Green Guide program moving. And then of course the economy collapsed, Henderson said. He spent all the money he made in Tallahassee down here on 98 which is sad. Seidler recalled: 2008 just ate him up. They gave him six months and he pushed another ve years out of his heart, Seidler said. He was stubborn. He just didnt want to go. He enjoyed life too much. Joe was kind of an inspiration, Henderson said. He always had a positive outlook he didnt have a doomsday attitude. He will be missed, Seidler said.Businessman Joe Barry dies FILE PHOTOJoe Barry at the front desk at the Inn at Wildwood with hotel manager Denise Johnson in 2005. From Page 1A We all feel passionate about jobs, Fults said. But at what cost? His major concern was the location. Theres a wetland there, Fults said. Yatsko said the facility would be held to strict standards by the Department of Environmental Protection. Crum added that the site was previously a land ll. Its not pristine, he said. Many in the audience questioned Fults motives for disagreeing with the project. Fults entered into a contract to purchase the property in order to expand his own business. The contract was signed a week or so before the town hall meeting which had some wondering if he purchased the building only to block the project. Fults insisted that he had been wanting to purchase the building since 2011 and now had the funds to do so. He said he did not know about Yatskos interest in the property at that time. Fults said the owner of the property accepted his offer, they have entered into a contract and are waiting on the approval of the sale from the bank. Fults said he has two interests, to look out for whats best for Panacea and to expand his business. He asked Yatsko why he wasnt looking at locating at the county land ll or Opportunity Park. Yatsko said he was told the land ll was not available and was just informed about the possibility of Opportunity Park. County Administrator David Edwards said he met with Yatsko, along with Public Works Director Cleve Fleming, County Commissioner Jerry Moore and WEI Executive Director Bob Ballard, in early December about the potential new business. At that time, Edwards said he informed Yatsko that property next to the land ll was available, as well as Opportunity Park. One of those two would make sense, Edwards said. Edwards said Yatsko brought up the idea of Panacea. It didnt make any sense, Edwards said of that location. Following that meeting, Edwards said they didnt hear from him until a week or so ago. During the town hall meeting, Fults also brought up Yatskos history of the proposed MRF in Columbia County. Columbia Technologies purchased property in Columbia County to operate a MRF and received all the necessary approval from the county in 2011. Since that time, the only thing that has been done is a slab has been placed at the property and some equipment has been brought in, Fults said. The project has died on the vine, Fults said. Would you agree with that? Yatsko said he did not. Fults asked if Yatsko could make both facilities happen, one in Columbia County and one here. Yatsko said he could. Several audience members also asked where the money would come from for the project. Yatsko said this meeting was intended to see if people are responsive to the idea. Those questions come with the unraveling of the opportunity, Yatsko said. This isnt that. Crum agreed and said there is no guarantee that Yatsko is bringing his company to Panacea and this was just so residents could be involved in the discussion. This was all about seeing if there was support, Crum said.Garbage sorting facility in Panacea?

The tragic loss of a historic Wakulla homeCandy- avored tobacco vote was bad Pearce and Creel being proactive Swine Show will be March 9 ank you for help after husbands deathREADERS WRITE: Editor, The News: I would like to thank Superintendent Bobby Pearce and Sheriff Charlie Creel, and their teams, for being proactive, and hosting a Safe Schools drill on Jan. 30 at the high school. With so much gun violence occurring in schools across the U.S., it is important that faculty and staff know how to respond, if such a horri c event would occur in Wakulla County. This shows their commitment to provide a safe school environment for our students, faculty, administration and parents. Keep up the good work! Sue Damon Shell Point Editor, The News: After I read last weeks article about increased safety measures in Wakulla County schools following recent shooting incidents in other parts of the country, I moved on to the one about how the county commission repealed an ordinance banning the sale of avored tobacco products in family venues (anywhere minors can make a purchase). The story about increased safety measures indicated, among many other proposed enhancements, that sniffer dogs would be used to patrol school campuses, presumably to protect kids from substance abuse. While this wont have a direct impact on the issue of shooters on campus, it does underscore the degree to which protective services can extend their scope to proactively protect children from public hazards, such as the ingestion of dangerous substances that can kill or maim them whether the substance in question is a street drug, a round from an assault ri e or a deadly toxin, like tobacco. In the avored tobacco ban article, each commissioner was quoted about why they repealed the ban. Only Dr. Howard Kessler indicated support for the ban, citing his concern for our children. Mr. Randy Merritt expressed concern about some unintended consequences and Mr. Ralph Thomas referred to collateral damage from the ordinance, apparently unaware of the negative consequences of marketing tobacco products to children and avoiding scienti c data that (collateral) damage from second-hand smoke impacts thousands of children daily. Mr. Richard Harden defended business interests and personal (adult) rights and Mr. Jerry Moore seems to think that small-town interests are too low ght for, thus offering tacit approval for unrestrained business practices, however predatory they may be. According to a recent press release from the county commission of ce, tobacco company documents reveal that avored tobacco products are designed and marketed in order to lure kids into a lifetime of tobacco use. If you want rst-hand evidence of this disgusting process, just look around. The fact is that, in most cases, avored tobacco products are found on the service counter within reach of customers and at kids eye-level, in brightly colored packages that resemble boxes of candy. What could possibly be wrong with protecting our kids from this heinous in uence? From the county commissions perspective, apparently its the impact on businesses, and subsequently the taxes they pay to the county, that is at risk. Well, thats just nuts! The ban would only force avored tobacco products out of the reach of kids. It wont mean a loss of tax revenue for the county because almost nobody would drive out of the county to buy avored tobacco products when they can simply buy them from an adult only vendor. Nobody, that is, except a minor. The banning ordinance was one of the few good things that happened under the previous board of commissioners. Repealing it is a huge slap in the face for families seeking reason and accountability in local government. John Palumbo Crawfordville By BETTY GREENNo! No! No! Those were the words I screamed Wednesday, Jan. 30, when I drove by the home on U.S. Highway 98 and 319 at Medart. The beautiful and historic old home known as the Durrance place and to others as the Sparkman house, lay in a small mountain of splinters, broken rafters, roof and even a few wispy curtains peeked out! I stopped, crying. Why? Why? The operator of the huge machine pushing up the debris got down when I waved to him. His replies to my questions led me to make more inquiries into what had become, for me, a catastrophe. You see, the old house was a wonderful old historic home which is just what the Wakulla County Historical Societys Heritage Village Committee is trying to save and place in a village setting on the forty acres of land acquired for that use through the generosity of Ben Boynton. The house was built by Arthur Tully in 1905 and became known as the Durrance house and later, the Sparkman place because of last names of related families that lived there. In the summer of 2007, Sylvia Durrance, owner of the home at that time, returned from San Francisco, where she worked as lead nurse in the cardiac trauma unit in a large San Francisco hospital. Sylvia loved Wakulla County and its history and we had been in touch for several years. We met at the local library to go over much history that she had written for our soon-to -be published book. She was so excited to tell me she would be retiring at the close of that year and was returning to live in her house, and when she was no longer able to stay there, she wanted the Historical Society to have it for the Heritage Village, which, at that time, was only a dream on paper. Alas, tragedy struck the following November. Sylvia died of a massive heart attack while driving to work across the Golden Gate Bridge! It was a news item on San Francisco TV as her death could have been a monumental problem for the traf c on the bridge had it not been for a truck driver behind her who saw her slump over the wheel and the car began drifting. He somehow made it around her to allow her front bumper to lock into his rear bumper and guided everything to a safe stop! Well, Sylvia did return to Wakulla County to be buried in Lake Ellen Cemetery. Her brother became owner of the house...and life moved on. Family members and I knew Sylvia wanted the house saved but frankly, there was little discussion. Now, the house is out of the picture, literally. It seems someone living there had agreed to buy the place and was making payments and decided to have it weatherized. The State Housing Initiative Partnership administered by Meridian Community Services Group in Tallahassee has taken over such projects in Wakulla County. Persons from this company visited the house and said they could not weatherize this house as it was too old but they could have it taken down and a new one built on that land. Well, who wouldnt have chosen a new house at government expense? The point of this article is not only to bemoan the loss of the most wonderful house the society had an opportunity to place in the village but also to ask our law makers and the public to help us save our history. Also there really are questions as to the cost of many federal programs that are causing our national debt explosion. Please, Wakulla County citizens, help us preserve at least some of our history whether it be houses, pictures, stories and/or other artifacts!

Editor, The News: The 47th annual Wakulla Youth Swine Show will be held on March 9 this year. It is usually the second week in February, but the date was moved due to some of the pigs being smaller than usual when purchased. This year will be different from years past: a barbecue cookoff will be held with the winner receiving a trophy and bragging rights for one year. County dignitaries will judge the cookoff. Also, something new this year will be vendors. Although there is no charge for the cookoff, vendor booths will be $20 in hopes of securing a larger number of participants. The Wakulla Youth Fair committee is hoping the additions will become an annual event and educate people on what all is available in Wakulla County. Weve had people tell us they didnt know what the Youth Swine Show was. This is the perfect opportunity to get people out and about into the community. We have some Tallahassee vendors signed up and thats a good thing. Barbecue plates will be available at noon for $7 each with a meat, two sides and tea. A vendor will be on hand to sell some great desserts. Alumni from previous swine shows will also be showing in an event. This is a very educational event for participants and spectators alike. If you havent been to this event before, come out and support the event. Thank you, Evelyn Ashley Crawfordville Editor, The News: I am writing this letter to say thank you to everyone who has been supporting me and my family since my husband Robert Keith died on Nov. 16, and also to let his family know that I will be carrying out his nal wish of having his ashes spread out on Skipper Bay on Feb. 9, which should have been his 64th birthday.

Miranda Madden and Heather Goodman were given the Senior Centers rst-ever Good Samaritan Award in a brief ceremony on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the center. Bud McClary was walking on Oak Street in the dark on Dec. 6 when he walked into a street sign, gashed his head and was knocked down. The two women, who live nearby and were driving in their car, stopped and offered help. They took McClary home, got him an ice pack for his head, and called his family. They went back and checked on him the next day. I sure am glad you two were there for me, he told them. These two girls are special very, very special, he said as he gave them owers. Senior Center Director Maurice Langston said he is working on a project called Sidewalks for Seniors to get sidewalks and lighting on roads around the Senior Center to help with the problem. He said he was working with County Commissioner Howard Kessler, who was at the ceremony, to pursue grant funding for the sidewalks. Its gonna happen, he said.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR By JAMES L. SNYDER Under normal circumstances, I am a rather cool, calm and collected person. I say normal because not everything in my life is normal. It takes a lot to rattle this cage of mine but, once rattled, lookout whoever rattles it. I am saying all this to get to my point, which is, somebody hacked my computer email account this past week. If you think I will take this sitting down, oh, I guess I am sitting down right now, but I assure you I will not stand for something like this. I have never been so rattled in my life. If a mistake is mine, I will own up to it. If it is not mine, lookout sender. The rst thing I did was to call my cousin who is an attorney, Charles Sues-ALot, and laid the case out before him. My rst question to my cousin attorney was very basic; Is it still against the law to murder someone? As all good attorneys do, he hesitated and thought about it. He then went on to explain that if he could prove insanity there was a good chance he could get somebody off very lightly. Insanity, I asked, is that hard to prove in a court of law? At this point, there was no hesitation whatsoever. My good lawyer cousin said, Not in your case. If insanity runs in our family, I am convinced it trotted over into his pasture a long time ago and has been milling around for years. At this point, murder is out. If I actually knew who this person was, I could defriend them like they do on Facebook. You can be sure I would defriend him with all of the sarcastic bitterness I could muster on that hot dog. I noticed this last week when I accessed my email a bunch of different popups popped up on my screen. Instinctively I tried to unpop them without any success whatsoever. Every time there was a pop-up, I had the instinctive desire to pop someone in the nose. At one stage, it got out of control and about 17,000 pop-ups jumped onto my computer screen at the same time. Without thinking, I immediately turned off my computer. If anybody knows what I did, you realize what I did was a terrible thing to do. I encrypted, or whatever the term is, these pop-ups permanently on my computer. When I opened up my computer, it was pop-up time for the hacker. Things can be done to unhack your computer, which I put in full force. I really wanted to hack into this hackers life except he probably does not have one. I mean, after all, where are the jollies of hacking into someones email account? I can see someone hacking into my bank account. I would love to see someone hack into my bank account and see how much money I dont have. If I was a small government, I could see somebody trying to hack into my email accounts. As it stands, where is the payoff in doing something like this? This ghost hacker cannot see me and my frustration after being hacked. So, what is the good of it all? These pop-ups on my computer were coming fast and furious. Then it hit me. This is not some ghost hacker hacking into my email account, it must be the government, called fast and furious in the news a while back. Was this what they were talking about? There were many similarities between what I was going through and our government. First off, the whole thing was rather annoying. I am not sure there has ever been a time in our country when the government has been more annoying than now. Then, all the hacking did not make any sense to me at all. How much of the government is really making sense to anybody anymore? I am sure there is somebody, somewhere who can make sense out of our government but he is probably on the run. A friend of mine said that everybody goes through this sort of thing and it is kind of an equal share in the misery of being on the Internet. Equal share? Thats government lingo if ever I heard it. After three days of torturous working at my computer, I nally got the pop-ups to stop. I changed the password of my email account and brought all of this nonsense to a stop. I won the battle against that blasted hacker who tried to ruin my week. With a steaming cup of coffee and my open Bible, I read some comforting words. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, then he that is in the world (1 John 4:4 KJV). My relationship is of such a nature with God that nobody can hack into that relationship. I rest completely in Gods competent hands.Rev. James L.

In order to be productive in our prayer lives, we must realize that prayer is an offensive weapon. We pray about things we want the Lord to do. Christians have taken on prayer as a spiritual discipline to be checked off each day. They have used it as a way to make their lives more comfortable, asking God to give them the things they want. We praise God in the good times and the bad. It is commanded of us to pray. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked way, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14) At New Hope Pentecostal Church of Christ Written in Heaven on Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. will be a Valentine program. There will be a special love gift for the oldest couple and the youngest couple. Host pastor is Elder Cromartie. The public is welcome. The Missionary Charlotte and Brother John Rosier Family and Friend Day Fellowship will be this weekend, Friday night and Saturday at noon after the fellowship service with speaker for the occasion, Bishop Joseph Rosier from Greenville, S.C. Welcome to all familiy and friends. The activities will be held at Skipper Temple Church, 165 Surf Road in Sopchoppy. HEAVENS TO BETSYLent re ects sacri ce for One who sacri ced everything By BETSY GOEHRIG The season of Lent will begin on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, and continue until Easter Sunday, March 31. Lent is a time of prayerful preparation for experiencing anew the events of Holy Week, culminating in the celebration of Christs resurrection. During Holy Week, many churches will observe special services for Palm Sunday, Maundy or Holy Thursday observance of the Lords Last Supper, and celebration of the resurrection on Easter Sunday. This season can be more than ritual and tradition, but truly be a season of enriching our spiritual lives and faith journeys. Lent is a season of repentance and healing, a time of preparing to journey again to the cross and the resurrection. Some religions are big on giving up something for Lent. Some Christians make some kind of personal sacri ce from Ash Wednesday until Easter day, with fasting or other suffering to pay penance for sins, to seek forgiveness and healing, and to acknowledge and give thanks for Christs ultimate suffering for us on the cross. For some of us (like me, until recently) this giving up of something has not been part of our tradition and is foreign to us. For others, the focus is not on giving up, but of giving more of going above and beyond the usual, in preparation for this holy season. Whether or not you give something up, or you seek to do more of something, such as spending more time in reading the Bible, praying, or serving, Lent can be a wonderful time of growing spiritually. It can be a time of making our own lives better in some way and can be a time of reconciling with others and with God. In recent years, I have begun the practice of giving something up, as a small sacri ce, in light of the world-changing sacri ce Christ made for us on the cross. I have found it to be at times challenging or at the very least tempting or inconvenient but always spiritually rewarding. How ever you choose to observe Lent, let it become a special time in which you intentionally do something different. Let it be 40 days of purpose- lled living and giving and doing. And through this small sacri ce for the One who gave everything, including His life on the cross, may we each experience anew the transforming power of Gods Holy Spirit and the amazing love of His Son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior!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.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWSMembers of Troupe No. 5036 SPECIAL TO THE NEWSKatrina Roddenberry, Melissa Martin, Molly Jones, Jennifer Williams and Cassandra Burnham are chosen to participate in Teaching From Spaces MicroGravity eXperience.Teachers selected for NASA experienceBy KATRINA RODDENBERRYof Riversink Elementary SchoolA team of teachers from Riversink Elementary School has been selected to participate in the NASA Teaching From Spaces MicroGravity eXperience (Micro GX). The team, known as the Riversink Elementary Otters, was one of seven selected from around the nation to participate in this cycle of Micro GX. The team includes: Katrina Roddenberry (third grade teacher), Melissa Martin (third grade teacher), Molly Jones (second grade teacher), Jennifer Williams (kindergarten/ pre- rst teacher) and Cassandra Burnham (fourth grade teacher). The team submitted a proposal for their students classroom experiment to be conducted in NASAs reduced gravity aircraft at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. As a part of the program, students at Riversink Elementary will design, build and test their experiment in the classroom. Then, the team of teachers will perform the student designed experiment aboard the Reduced Gravity Flight during the week of July 12-20 at NASAs Johnson Space Center. The Reduced Gravity Flight, also known as the Weightless Wonder, provides brief periods of near weightlessness or microgravity. The Weightless Wonder is the aircraft that NASA uses to train astronauts and conduct microgravity research. The Riversink Elementary Otters created a unit entitled Wakulla Waters: A Liquid Investigation as part of their proposal. The unit was designed to provide students with the opportunity to observe and experiment with various liquids from natural resources in Wakulla County. Spring water from Wakulla Springs State Park will be used in the experiment. In addition, the team has partnered with Ochlockonee State Park to use the mix of brackish, tidal surge, and fresh water from the Ochlockonee River in their experiment. Water from the natural salt marshes of St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge will also be used. Finally, salt water from the Gulf of Mexico will be utilized courtesy of Bald Point State Park. The team designed the unit in order to enable students to discover the important qualities of liquids and to help them foster an appreciation for the many natural resources in Wakulla County. In the upcoming months, the teachers will be engaged in online professional development through NASA on microgravity and collaboration with a NASA mentor. The teachers and students will create a documentary of their experiences and incorporate it into a multimedia presentation that they can share with the community. The teams rst community outreach will be during Wild about Wakulla Week in April. The teachers, along with several students, will present their experiment at Wakulla Springs State Parks Wildlife Festival on April 20.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsEvery year I set up a conference for an association that meets in New Orleans for a Mardi Gras Conference. This takes a lot of my time during December and January and this year was no exception. The last time I shed was three weeks ago. I went out to get a number for a good shing spot for a friend of mine and I couldnt remember how to turn my Garmin on. I dont know if it is because I havent been in my boat for three weeks or Im getting old and forgetful. Well just say its because I havent been in my boat. The conference runs this Wednesday through Sunday and when I get back I plan on doing a lot of shing. I talked with Jimmy over at Shell Island and he said Jay Cooper from Tallahassee went out late yesterday and came back in a short while with four reds that were very close to 27 inches. Some trout are still being caught up in the river and there are plenty of mangrove snapper and sheepshead but most are small. Live or fresh shrimp on the bottom is your best bet. Fish up near and above the power plant. Jimmy said they have plenty of bait shrimp so come on down. JR said the cold weather came through and he canceled a Saturday and Sunday shing trip because he was afraid it was gonna shut the trout down. He said he was right. He and a buddy went out Saturday and did manage to catch their limit of reds and saw a bunch more. He also saw a lot of trout but they would not bite. They had live bait and threw Catch 2000s, Red ns, Gulp Jerk Baits and they didnt want anything. He said he talked to some other folks who said the same thing. The sh were there but just wouldnt bite. Last week before the cold he caught lots of trout and believes if we dont get a lot of wind after the rain, the weekend should be very good. He did say there were some trout in the river but folks are shing hard for ve or six trout. If you want to book a trip with JR give him a call at the store at (850) 584-4594 or on his cell at (850) 8380874. I will guarantee you nobody knows the water down there any better than he does. Capt. David Fife is back and living at Shell Point. Last week he had some buddies down from North Carolina and the rst day they came in he had them meet him at the Econ na River. They went out of the river and shed the creeks and caught eight trout. The next two days they caught 16 each day and on the fourth day decided to stay around Shell Point and Spring Creek. He said they should have gone back to the Econfina. Most of their sh were caught on Mirrolures and the Catch 2000. Mike Pearson and a buddy from Tifton shed Wednesday and Thursday of last week and caught their limit of trout each day using a Mirrolure. Mike said they caught a lot of trout and didnt have to go too far out of the mouth of the river. We have a warming trend coming and hopefully it will turn the sh on. I understand right now they re catching them on the ats at Keaton Beach. Maybe they will be on the ats out of Shell Point and St. Marks in late February or early March. Remember to know your limits and get those rods and reels cleaned and those motors tuned up. It wont be long. Good luck and good shing! From The DockBY CAPT.

The hunt, which took place Jan. 25-27 in the Econ na Creek Water Management Area in Bay and Washington counties, was hosted with support from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS) Florida Forest Service, Friends of Florida State Forests and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. For many of these veterans, an Operation Outdoor Freedom hunt is their rst opportunity to get outdoors and spend time with their peers since returning from duty, said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. These men and women have risked their lives to protect our freedoms. The least we can do is offer a little recreation and rehabilitation in return. Operation Outdoor Freedom is an endeavor of the Florida Forest Service that offers recreational opportunities, including hunting and shing, to wounded veterans on state and agricultural lands. Through the program, designated areas are equipped to accommodate the special needs of wounded veterans, providing an opportunity for recreation and rehabilitation that is not available through any other state program. The District is proud to be the rst public agency to partner with DACS to host a hunt under the Operation Outdoor Freedom program, said Executive Director Jon Steverson. Were grateful for the opportunity to honor our nations heroes through this program and to the organizations and individuals who partnered with our staff to make this event successful. Thanks to donations and support from individuals and local businesses, the District was able to provide meals for all participants, along with volunteers, camping accommodations and equipment for the hunt. Since the program was established in 2010, Operation Outdoor Freedom has hosted more than 200 wounded veterans on 10 different state forests. The program expects to serve an additional 200 veterans during the 2012-2013 seasons. The District owns more than 200,000 acres across northwest Florida, protecting river corridors, springs, streams, lakes and wetlands. The Econ na Creek Water Management Area consists of approximately 41,000 acres surrounding the Econ na Creek Corridor, including steephead valleys, sandhill lakes and numerous springs. Hunting is allowed throughout much of the area, which the District partners with the FWC to manage. The area also features a hunting area and group campsite accessible to mobility-impaired hunters.Hunt held for wounded veteransThis report represents some events the FWC handled over the week of Jan. 25-31. It does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement. FRANKLIN COUNTY: Capt. Craig Duval was off duty hunting in the Crooked River Tract of Tates Hell WMA. While he was heading out of the management area at last light, he heard a shot towards Highway 67 approximately 100 yards away from his location. As he was traveling towards Highway 67, he came upon a white Toyota Camry stopped in the middle of the roadway with the drivers door open, blocking the road. No one was in the vehicle. Another vehicle approached and pulled alongside of the parked Camry. An individual exited the woods and spoke briefly to the driver of the second vehicle and then both subjects and vehicles left the area. Duval noticed neither of the subjects spoke to him and it was obvious that they did not want to. He made contact with dispatchers, who directed Officers Woody Cook and Matt Gore to his location. While waiting for the of cers to arrive, the driver of the Camry came back to Duvals location and stopped. Duval asked him, What did you shoot? The subject said nothing and said he shot at a buck and missed. The driver left the area for a second time. Approximately 10 minutes later, the subject came back, stopped his vehicle, got out and asked him if he was the game warden. Duval replied, Yes, why? He asked what he was doing, and Duval said he was waiting on two of cers to arrive so he could go out and look around due to shots being red and no one wanting to stick around afterwards. The subject said he did not kill anything but would stay to see if anything was found. After Of cers Gore and Cook arrived, Duval explained the scenario and they went into the woods. After a brief search, a freshly killed doe was located approximately 60 yards away from the road in direct line with where the Camry was originally parked. During a subsequent discussion with the subject, he accepted responsibility for the deer. The doe and a 30-06 ri e were seized as evidence. The bullet was retrieved from the doe for examination and forensic matching to the subjects ri e. The subject was cited and released. GADSDEN COUNTY: Officer Ben Johnson stopped a vehicle for careless driving. When Of cer Johnson ran a wanted person check, he discovered an active warrant on the driver. The subject was arrested and booked into Gadsden County Jail. Later that day, Of cer Johnson received a complaint about a short-antler deer being shot. USDA Officer Kevin Partridge joined Officer Johnson with checking hunters at Camel Lake. The investigation led to information identifying the person who shot the deer. The shooter, from out of town, was located and issued a citation for the violation. The deer meat was seized and later donated. Near Morgan Swamp Hunting Lease, two men entered private property without permission. Officer Ben Johnson was joined by Officer Mike Mitchell with the Chattahoochee Police Department, who had obtained information that both men had ri es. Upon investigation, it was discovered the men did not possess hunting licenses or deer permits. Citations were issued for the violations. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: Of cers Nick Barnard and John Clark were working complaints of night hunting activity north of Walnut Hill when Barnard heard a rifle shot and stopped a vehicle travelling from the location. Two adults and one juvenile were in the truck. Barnard and Clark noticed two ri es, one shotgun, and a spotlight inside the truck. The operator admitted he had just taken a shot. The of cers observed three harvested doe deer in the bed of the truck. Closer inspection revealed a cooler containing untagged deer meat. The subjects stated they had killed the three doe deer in Alabama but could not produce an Alabama hunting license. The ri es, shotgun, spotlight, doe deer, untagged meat, and cooler were seized as evidence. The two adult subjects were charged with attempting to take deer at night with a gun and light, possession of doe deer out of season, possession of untagged deer meat, and discharging a rearm from a public road.FWC Law Enforcement operations
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 7, 2013 Page 11AAs mentioned last week, this past weekend was a very busy one for members of Flotilla 12. Four members left bright and early to drive over to Destin for the Winter Division meeting. Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon who is on the Division Board, Carolyn Treadon who is Division Secretary, Raye Crews who is the Division Diversity of cer and Fran Keating attended. Three times a year the Division Board, made up of our elected officials, and the staff come together for a meeting. This winter, we met at Station Destin. It is hard to not nd solace with the water right outside the meeting room. Division Vice Commander Eric DuVuyst discussed the two primary goals for our Division this year should be the education of the procedures, policies and job descriptions of staff positions at both the division and otilla levels and our second goal should be communication and the tools the Auxiliary can offer. In essence, we all need to know what our responsibilities are and be aware of the resources we have available to us for use. Each division staff of cer works with the Flotilla Staff Of cers to ensure that they have the needed resources to do their jobs. Flotilla commanders and staff of cers are each given time to chat about what their goals are for the year. Duane Treadon represented Flotilla 12 Apalachee Bay; John Beebe Flotilla 14 represented Destin-Fort Walton; Ray Wagoner Flotilla 17 represented Pensacola; John Seely Flotilla 18 represented Milton; and Greg Mote Flotilla 19 represented Panama City. Across our Division, flotillas are working to provide opportunities to increase safe boating, educate the public including school children, and get out in the public eye to increase awareness. At the end of our meeting, the incoming staff officers were given the oath of office by Commodore William Crouch. It is always a moving moment to hear the oath and recommit our dedication to the Auxiliary. While we were over in Destin, several other members were in St. Marks at the Wildlife Refuge for the WHO festival. Chuck Hickman sent in the following report. On Saturday the Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla, Apalachee Bay participated in the Wildlife Heritage and Outdoors Festival at the St. Marks Nation Wild Life Refuge. Larry Kolk displayed his vintage design boat which was appreciated by all who stopped by the booth set up at the lighthouse. Mike Harrison, Phil Hill and Chuck Hickman staffed the booth and provided information about safe boating, the role of the Auxiliary, and courses provided through the Auxiliary. Children and some adults tried their hand at throwing a heaving line, a skill learned by all crew quali ed Auxiliary members. While it was a long day it proved to be rewarding to all who participated. It was a bit brisk in the morning but turned into a beautiful day for everyone. Auxiliary members Gary and Christy Owens also came down with their daughter Madelyn to enjoy the day. Being always Semper Paratus, auxiliary members were helping them look for a gator in the tidal ponds! Next week, Flotilla 12 will hold our monthly meeting at the Naval Reserve Center in Tallahassee. While the Fire Station in Crawfordville is under renovation, we will be utilizing other locations for our meetings. Following the meeting, several members will work with the Reservists to provide training towards their PQSs. And as Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident.

Auxiliarists at the Wildlife Heritage and Outdoors Festival at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, below, look for gators in the tidal ponds. Business Underwater Becoming a merchant has made me more aware of the challenges facing some of my underwater study subjects. Let me explain. For years I observed marine creatures that survived by providing a service to their community. Science calls them cleaners, and by enlarge, dismiss their contribution as minimal and for the grati cation of their host. Perhaps The most obvious to humans are the sh cleaners on a reef, speci cally the Pederson shrimp found on Caribbean reefs. They are typically found roosting near anemones. Fish come to their location and are observed to patiently wait their turn, and then posture to the shrimp. Once mutual consent is reached, the sh will expose an area of its body and the shrimp will jump on to pick parasites or esh, cleaning, some times in icting pain which is tolerated by the sh. The sh will often open its mouth and permit the shrimp to enter, much like we humans do at the dentist. The shrimp presumably bene t with food, the sh with less parasites and better health. Cleaner shrimp represent a bene t to many sh made obvious by the effort of sh to seek and defend cleaners and their station (The Wakulla News, Oct. 11, 2012) on a reef. Shrimp advertise their services by swimming away from the protective anemone (anemones sting like re coral when touched) and dance. Caribbean divers have learned to offer their hand in posture to these shrimp and are cleaned. I have witnessed shrimp refuse to clean a sh and be knocked off the station or later ignored. Successful stations have a line of waiting sh, with multiple cleaners servicing clients. The established communications between these two species, more often in a predator-prey relationship, and the bene ts derived by both in this relationship fascinated me then as a scientist and now as a merchant. From our protective anemone, our center, we advertise our services (sign, newspaper, festivals, radio) which de nes our facility. Our sh, customers, come to our station to learn skills for better health to safely enjoy a new realm, and acquire technology to make them more ef cient. They occasionally inch when paying for a service, but tolerate it for the derived bene ts like the cleaned sh. It is our customers after all, who defend our station and encourage our success. Like the cleaner shrimp, our success is only as good as the service we can render. Our customer participation at the center bene ts our staff in terms of salary with which to feed their families. With more customer participation, more staff will be hired and our station will grow. Sound familiar? At rst glance it may sound far-fetched to compare our business with community life under water, and use the analogy to understand and improve our business processes. Hans Hass, the Austrian explorer and naturalist, years before Jacques Cousteau, using an oxygen rebreather lived amongst the shes, observing community dynamics. Hass has made many movie documentaries, and written several books about his observations. It was later in life that Hass became a successful consultant when he made the connection between how sh literally integrate their behavior to minimize efforts and maximize outcome, and applied it to the business world. This I just learned during a review of this article by Dr. Joerg Hess. Now, about that dance... P.O.

Competing for a second time in 2012 in the Florida Senior Games State Championships Powerlifting competition, Abal won ve gold medals in bench press and powerlift State competition. After competing during the summer in the Florida Senior Games Track and Field competition in both shot put and discus, Abal set his sights on entering his rst statewide powerlifting competition since his competition days of playing high school and college football. It was a great event with a very professional crew running the event and following AAU powerlifting rules of competition, said Abal. I had two of my lifts disqualified because I didnt follow the national AAU Judges command of when to lift, hold, and rack the weight. It was a positive experience and very impressive when you consider the field of more than 50 competitors, the ages of 50 to 91 years old and both women and mens classes, he said. The event was held as part of the Florida Senior Games State Championships Powerlifting twoday all age competition in Lakeland at the Lakeland Civic Center. A side note is that most competitors are sponsored by team powerlifting clubs or groups. Abal competed under his high school affiliation of Erie Tech Memorial track and eld team. I had a lot of Facebook classmates from high school wish me good luck and root for me, Abal said. A few even said I was crazy. A regional event is planned in Tallahassee for March 2013 where Abal will compete in shotput and discus events in addition to entering the powerlifting competition.SOFTBALLLady War Eagles beat Godby, lose to Leon in preseason games ROBERT DOUIN/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSWakulla War Eagle wrestlers after winning districts.WRESTLINGWar Eagles win districtSENIOR GAMESJoe Abal wins ve gold medals in weightlifting SPECIAL TO THE NEWSDr. Joe Abal ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIPS2 invited to Biletnikoff BanquetStaff ReportTwo Wakulla athletes will be honored at the 2013 Biletnikoff Banquet swimmer Joey Briggs, who lives in Wakulla and attends Rickards, and Savanna Harris of Wakulla High School.

(904)477 6283 850.224.4960www.fsucu.org From Page 1A In the past, the budget of the sheriffs of ce has been a hot item, with many in the community questioning where the money goes and wondering why it needs such a large chunk of the countys overall budget. Creel also has several programs and projects he plans to implement in the near future. He recently attended his rst sheriffs conference and learned about education-based discipline. Instead of giving a letter of reprimand or suspension to an employee who has broken a policy, the employee is required to study the policy they broke and write about it. This prevents the employee from losing some of their pay and taking away from their family, Creel says. You dont want a bitter employee, you want a better employee, Creel says. He also wants to allow female inmates to be on a work crew. Currently, women are not allowed to be on a work crew because they cant be mixed with male inmates. The sheriffs office was recently awarded a litter contract with the state and Creel says female inmates can be used on that crew under the director of one of their female correctional of cers. Creel also plans to establish a work release program for non-violent inmates. The inmate would be allowed to be out of jail to work from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and then would return to the jail. There would be strict regulations and contraband would not be tolerated, Creel says. If a guys is in jail for six months, his family is going to suffer, he says. There are two youth programs he is undertaking as well. One is the teen driving challenge where students learn to become better drivers and can get decreased insurance rates for taking the class. The other is a summer camp for at-risk youth where they will be taught about law enforcement and consequences for breaking the law. Both of these will be offered at no charge. All it takes is a little time by our deputies, Creel says. One of the cornerstones of Creels election campaign was reducing the crime rate. One of the ways to do this is to strengthen and reinstitute the countys neighborhood watch programs, he says. Basically its being a nosy neighbor, Creel says. This is what we want. There are 36 programs in the county, but many arent active, he says. In the past, a deputy has helped establish the program in a neighborhood, attended the first two meetings and then taken a step back. Creel says he wants to change that and have a deputy at every single meeting. Creel has already stressed the importance of deputies patrolling neighborhoods more often. I want them to get to know the neighbors, he adds. If someone sees something suspicious, he encourages them to contact the sheriffs office and trust that an of cer will show up. We can prevent crimes, Creel says. Creel was also excited about the renovations being done at the ring range. They are going to add another range, bringing it up to four on the site, expand the classroom space, and perform some cosmetic upgrades. Were going to make it a place that everybody in this county will be proud of, Creel says. These are just a few changes Creel is currently working on, but he plans to continue to make improvements where needed. We are taking one bite at a time at each of these of ces, Creel says.Creel settles in, says transition has been smooth Wildlife Heritage and Outdoors Festival More photos online at thewakullanews.net PHOTOS BY JENNIFER JENSENSt. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, Feb. 2.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comTo earth, and every common sight, to me did seem appareled in celestial light. So wrote William Wordsworth, noted 19th century English romantic poet. Wordsworth began his life in scenic northwest England. Bene ting from a privileged birth, he was afforded the time to re ect on the areas natural beauty. Most of the residents were working just to survive and had little time to notice. The terrain was heavily timbered in Wordsworths day, including a variety of pines which were part of the background of life for most people. A similar situation exists in Wakulla County today. The variety of pines is so common that they are rarely seen or appreciated. Arguably, the stateliest local pine is the Longleaf. This pine is a native North American tree capable of reaching 80 to 125 feet in height with a 30 to 40-footbranch spread. A distinctive characteristic this beautiful tree is the new growth clusters which are silvery white during the winter. These buds are commonly called candles, which require little imagination from the viewer to see the similarity. Longleaf pines stay in a tufted, grass-like stage for ve to seven years after germinating. They grow very slowly in this phase while developing a root system. Once the root system is established, the growth accelerates. The bright evergreen needles may extend up to 14 inches long and are very flexible giving a weeping effect to the tree. Flowers are inconspicuous and occur in spring, along with abundant pollen. Soon large, spiny cones follow and may remain on the tree for several years. The slash pine is another large, stately, heavily-branched, longneedled conifer native to Wakulla County. It is capable of a rapid growth rate and the potential of reaching 100 feet in height with a three to four-footdiameter trunk. The six-inch-long cones appear among the dark green, eightinch-long needles, and are favored by wildlife. Squirrels are particularly fond of the seeds, scattering the cone debris below. Slash pines self-prune its lower branches forming an open, rounded canopy which creates a light, dappled shade beneath. The grey-brown bark is deeply furrowed and scaly. The ltered light allows just enough sun to reach understory plants and grow beneath this tall, evergreen tree. This high, shifting shade provides an opportunity for wildlife habitat in the undergrowth. Aggressive root competition for moisture takes place beneath these pines. Left unmanaged, excessive undergrowth can produce a wildfire hazard particularly during the dry season. Pines typically have deep roots except in poorly-drained soil. Once established, slash pines are more tolerant of wet sites than most other pines and are moderately salt-tolerant. Pines grow well on a variety of acidic soils in full sun or partial shade. The tap root is prominent in well-drained soils and can make young trees difficult to transplant from the wild. Like in Wordsworths day, while pines go largely unnoticed they are an integral part of modern life. Pine timber for structures, pine needles for mulch, pulp for paper and there are many more pine product which are used daily without a thought to their origin.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy DAVID ROYSETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 1 In the effort to think of someone who might try to replace the unpopular Gov. Rick Scott, one name has largely been overlooked: Rick Scott. The little-known, populist, former tea party politician emerged this week as a sweet-talking alternative to the Rick Scott who got elected in 2010 promising to be stingy and mean, to Get to Work at slashing the size of government. Where Rick Scott-2010 rolled out his rst budget by noting theres no sweeteners for special interests, or special people, or special companies, Rick Scott-2012 this week put out a budget that tries to make several people feel special, from classroom teachers to state workers to environmentalists. The new Scott, with no hint of shame at all, touted a gift bag of a proposed budget this week that tries to spread some happiness around, a sort-of I told you so, about how a recovering economy can lift a lot of boats. The economy, the governor essentially said, has the state heading back toward the land of milk and honey, just in time for Scott to ask people to evaluate his rst term and give him another. Theres $2,500 raises for all classroom teachers; $1,200 bonuses for ordinary state workers, with bigger bonuses for the really good employees; theres a big increase in per-student spending in K-12; new money for universities, along with a call for no tuition increases. And there continue to be the calls for tax breaks that are left over from old Rick Scotts time. Opponents of the governor kind of had their heads spun around a few times he was actually calling for some things theyve been pleading for, and forcing them to nd some new talking points. After a couple years of being saddled with low approval ratings, the governor looked like he wanted people to like him. And Democrats and others who have spent the last few years criticizing Scott found themselves admitting he was saying some things that voters just might like. Its a taxpayer- nanced down payment on courting votes for 2014, said Sen. Chris Smith, of Fort Lauderdale, the leader of the Democrats in his chamber, to which Republicans essentially replied: Well, yeah. The states teachers union probably had to pull out a dictionary. Cutting and pasting the criticism theyve leveled for years wasnt an option and they likely couldnt nd the last sentence they wrote in praise of a budget because it was presumably stored on an IBM 486 thrown out at the end of the Chiles administration. We are happy the governor is recognizing and investing in Floridas high performing public schools, Florida Education Association President Andy Ford said, seeming even in a written press release to struggle to get the words out. We look forward to the governors strong advocacy of this proposal. Before this week the only thing the teachers union was looking forward to was getting a new governor. The union that represents many state workers will continue to advocate for an across-the-board pay raise, something government rank and file workers havent had in six years. The spokesman for AFSCME also was using unfamiliar words, calling the governors bonus plan generous and a signi cant nancial commitment and even saying the union appreciates it. I want to reward the most effective employees, no different than what I did when I was in business, Scott said. A few years ago, the state used to buy land to keep it out of development. There is a program called Florida Forever but it didnt look like it would go on for that long. When the recession hit, the state basically stopped buying conservation lands. But this week, Scott said lets go back out there and pick up some more wilderness. Scott proposed $75 million for the land buying program, after requesting just $15 million last year and using his veto pen to strike Florida Forever money two years ago. He also proposed new money for Everglades restoration and other environmental cleanup programs. Scott also wants new dollars to reduce the waiting list for developmentally disabled people needing services, and overall, the proposed budget is bigger, in unadjusted dollar terms, than it has been in several years, coming in at over $74 billion though Scotts staff points out that when adjusted for population and in ation, its the third smallest in over a decade. Still, the other two smaller ones? Those were Scotts rst two budgets. Bottom line, Scott says: the economy is coming back to life. And as he and other Republicans before him have said, when taxes are low and spending is careful, taxes come in more robustly and spending can be a little more carefree. The new money comes mostly from increased tax collections, Scott said. Floridas economy is back on track and the nation is taking notice of our economic turnaround, Scott said Thursday. If one were watching the budget release with a political eye, one might say Scott is looking like another recent governor: Charlie Crist. That is, hes found a popular issue improving education and helping out teachers and hes going to go to bat for it. If that conveniently brings in some votes, well thats OK. And if lawmakers cant find a way to make it work well, hes not the one being the bad guy. Crist, who is thinking about his own gubernatorial comeback effort, may have to pull out his planbook and cross offer teachers a pay raise and throw money at schools off his to-do campaign list as something thats been taken away by the other guy. BURNS AND ALLEN, ABBOT AND COSTELLO, WEATHERFORD AND GAETZWhile Scott this week unveiled his budget, the speaker of the House and the Senate president were sounding a note of harmony, appearing together literally speaking at the same time at a meeting of newspaper editors in an effort to show that their goals are the same. One of the knocks on the Legislature going back many years is that it gets bogged down in the personal agendas of its leaders and sometimes gets hung up when those agendas are at odds. Or the legislative calendar becomes fodder for horse-trading between the president and speaker so they can each get some of what they want for their legacy. But Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz, both Republicans, said in their joint appearance this week that they have one agenda as a team. We have a solid framework of agreement on issues of key importance, Gaetz said a sentence that sounds more like something spoken in the last few hours of session. The two are on the same page on a number of issues, they said, from wanting to be cautious over the budget even with the new surplus, to interest in ethics reforms. Adding to the bizarre tag-team approach of the two leaders, Gaetz, who is never at a loss for words and lots of them responded to one question, about use of tax dollars to help out professional sports enterprises, by following Weatherfords answer simply with What he said. Weatherford and Gaetz assurances of a harmonious couple of years between the two chambers came at an annual meeting of newspaper editors put on by The Associated Press. Also at that meeting was a panel discussion of what happened on Election Day to cause long lines and what the solution should be. While consensus seems to have developed in the Legislature that more early voting days may be needed, and while some are pushing for shorter ballots, the panel discussion made it clear that there remain differences in opinion about what happened and why. Particularly why. The most interesting discussion was over what the intent of lawmakers was when they reduced early voting and made it hard to change mailing addresses on Election Day. Democrats repeated their belief that it was part of a broad, national GOP effort to reduce minority voting. Republicans said thats absurd. They basically agreed to continue to disagree. I dont personally believe Republicans sat in a room and tried to gure out a way to suppress the vote, said Florida GOP Chairman Lenny Curry. But thats exactly what many Democrats do believe. I dont think Republicans probably used those words, but pretty close, said Democratic Party executive director Scott Arceneaux, sitting next to Curry on the panel. I believe there absolutely was an intent to suppress votes, added Rep. Janet Cruz, D-Tampa, who was on Currys other side. Sen. Jack Latvala, R-St. Petersburg, voted for the law most often blamed by critics for doing that, an elections bill passed in 2011 that, among other things, reduced early voting days. He said he, for one, had no intent of keeping anyone from casting a ballot. Rather than thinking about keeping minorities and others who tend to vote Democratic from voting if that was ever contemplated the GOP needs to start courting them, Latvala said. We cant win just based on better techniques weve got to win based on ideas and better ideas, Latvala said. We cant write off AfricanAmericans and Hispanics and teachers and cops and re ghters and environmentalists and gays. Theres not 50 percent plus 1 left. STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov. Rick Scott rolls out a proposed budget that includes an increase of more than $1 billion in education spending, including a nearly half billion dollar pay raise for teachers. It also includes new money for environmental projects and bonuses for state workers a couple things not seen in a while. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Just because weve come out of the years the locusts have eaten, doesnt mean were in the years of milk and honey. Senate President Don Gaetz, injecting some Biblical caution into the talk about the return of budget largesse now that the economy has improved.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)The state budget of milk and honeyBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 4 Nine in 10 Florida respondents to an AARP poll say lawmakers should ban texting while driving, the statewide advocacy group announced Monday as it laid out its agenda for the 2013 Legislative session. Speaking to reporters in Tallahassee, AARP Florida Director Jeff Johnson said the groups top priority, however, is ensuring that Florida lawmakers expand the states Medicaid ranks to include hundreds of thousands more recipients who now earn too much to qualify but would under an optional program included in the new federal health care law. State lawmakers are debating whether to increase Medicaid eligibility to 133 percent of poverty, an expansion that would be paid for mostly by the federal government. Johnson said the survey of 982 individuals closely tracked the political breakdown across the state and found that a number of issues from texting to quality nursing home care and community diversion are supported by independents and members of both political parties. Were hopeful that as our elected of cials see the results of this survey they think about ways to they can work together on these issues instead of letting this devolve into partisan bickering, Johnson said. Though not included in the survey, Johnson said that AARP is strongly behind Affordable Care Act provisions expanding Medicaid coverage to recipients making up to 133 percent of poverty. A recent study by the American Cancer Society found that 63 percent of Florida respondents said the state should accept the optional provision in the federal health care act. We need to have that care provided. Johnson said. It seems to me that expanding Medicaid as considered in the Affordable Care Act is the best opportunity to do that. Legislative leaders and Gov. Rick Scott have yet to fully make public their views on the optional program, which critics say could cost state taxpayers billions more than federal of cials now assert. Among the surveys top ndings: 88 percent of respondents strongly support legislation to ban texting while driving. 76 percent strongly support efforts to strengthen enforcement of nursing home quality care standards 60 percent oppose electric utilities practice of charging customers for nuclear power plants and expansion before they actually begin construction. Respondents remain somewhat split over whether the state should tax internet sales, with 52 percent saying the sales should be taxed while 35 percent say no and 11 percent say they dont care.AARP: Expand Medicaid, ban texting while drivingSTATE GOVERNMENT NEWS Colon cancer is the 2ndleading cause of cancer deaths in Florida. 7 out of 10cancer deaths can be prevented through screening and lifestyle changes.

Coat bottom and sides of an 8-inch springform pan with cooking spray. 3. To prepare torte, combine chocolate with rum in a small heavy saucepan. Set pan over very low heat and stir occasionally until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth (or melt in microwave). 4. In a medium bowl, beat butter with a mixer on medium speed until smooth. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar and beat 2 to 3 minutes, until smooth and uffy. Add egg yolks and beat 1 minute. On low speed, beat in melted chocolate mixture (which may still be warm) only until thoroughly combined. Add cocoa and beat until incorporated. 5. In another medium bowl, with clean beaters, beat egg whites with salt until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form. 6. With a large rubber spatula, gently fold one fourth of whites into chocolate mixture. Add remaining whites, folding gently. Spoon batter into pan. 7. Bake 40 to 50 minutes.

Page 10B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comFrom Page 1B 2013 is presenting some very exciting opportunities for the Chamber and for Wakulla County. These are opportunities that will bring economic development, tourism, educational enrichment and environmental education and awareness. I feel very fortunate to be able to serve the chamber during this year when the TCC Wakulla Environmental Institute is breaking ground, our Tourist Development Council grant funding will begin to provide marketing avenues for our county to attract tourists, and the RESTORE Act funding initiative is getting underway. Wakulla County continues to become more de ned as an environmental treasure because of its forests and sinks, rivers and creeks, bays and salt marshes. It is essential to our success that through our business community and the chamber, we re ect our care and respect for what the rest of the world sees as our most valued asset. I feel like its my job this year to work on identifying ways our businesses can demonstrate their care and respect for Wakullas sensitive environment. A business recycling program would be very bene cial, and encouraging less waste in our businesses by re-using and re-purposing typical of ce products and packaging. As business leaders in this community, we must nd ways to help protect the place we love to live, work and play. I look forward to getting started.Tammie Bar eld is the president of the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce.From Page 1BThe Buckeye Florida plant near Perry is a major producer of specialty cellulose from slash pine. The plant produces a variety of high-grade cellulose products for use in the manufacture of rayon, tire cord, sausage casings, filter papers, diapers, and sanitary products. Next up was our new monthly member spotlight: Cook Insurance. Mary Wallace, who is also Chamber secretary and heads up the chamber luncheons, is the agency manager for Cook Insurance Agency. She was proud to announce that Cook Insurance is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year, founded in 1913 by John Henry Cook of Apalachicola. Cook Insurance became part of Centennial Bank family in November 2010 and has two locations, Crawfordville and Apalachicola. The Crawfordville office is located in the Centennial Bank at 2932 Crawfordville Highway and the Apalachicola of ce is located in the Centennial Bank at 22 Avenue.

They proudly serve the Panhandle and offer all lines of insurance from personal to commercial, to include home, auto, boat, umbrellas, business, life and health. Mary passed out save the date invitations for all to come and join in their Centennial Celebration on June 3, 2013. The celebration will be held at each location. Also, Mary introduced her guest, Amy Banning, marketing rep for Olympus Insurance. Cook Insurance is proud to represent Olympus and together they had a special surprise for all who attended. In the sprit of the Centennial Celebration everyone received a bottle of wine adorned with a special 100 year anniversary label. Pam Allbritton and Sharon Davidson of Big Bend Hospice were present to share their 30th anniversary serving our community. Here are some unique things that make Big Bend Hospice your Hometown Hospice: 1.) Patients are assigned a team of professionals experienced in helping those with life-limiting illnesses. 2.) Hospice is not a place its a service. Hospice has an office in all eight counties it serves, has a working relationship with Eden Springs and the Margaret Z. Dozier Hospice House, the only in-patient hospice facility in the Big Bend area, approximately 25 miles from downtown Crawfordville. 3.) Big Bend Hospice is the only Hospice with a triage nurse available to speak directly with the family or patient 24 hours a day/7 days a week. 4.) Big Bend Hospice has 450-plus trained volunteers and an Advisory Council in each of the counties served. The Wakulla Advisory Council is made up of local community leaders tasked with planning fundraising events for unfunded programs such as Music Therapy and Bereavement Counseling; speaking at civic groups, churches, etc. Megan Picht of theUnited Way of the Big Bend shared brochures and announced the nal push of the annual fundraising campaign, and encouraged considering individual donations or employee campaigns. Remember, any donations can be earmarked for a local group of your choice, but all funds raised from local donations stay in our community to support local organizations. Next was Chuck Robinson, chair of the Chambers Commerce and Government committee, and chair of the Chambers internal Restore Act committee. Chuck encouraged attending business owners and non-pro t organizations to share their needs or projects that would be important to workforce and economic development, and also to volunteer on the Chamber committee to assist in projects to be brought to the Countys committee. Niraj Patel, owner of Best Western Plus, reminded everyone of the upcoming Rotary Valentines Day Parade and Festival, including available booths and the rst ever 5K Cupid race, and available advertisement in the form of markers along the race route, which will be moved to Hudson Park after the race. Raf e tickets are also available. New Sheriff Charlie Creel said he is looking forward to working closely with the business community through a recently obtained grant, a community oriented cops program.
