King Samuel Albert King Laverne C. Mills Morgan Faith StringerRestoration for Shell PointBoard votes 3-2 to go forward with YMCA By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net On Thursday, May 2, Governor Rick Scott had good news for state communities that are still recovering from the BP oil spill of 2010 as he announced the proposal of 12 Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) projects totaling $58 million. Wakulla County will bene t by way of a Shell Point beach nourishment project costing $880,000. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Beaches and Coastal Systems has long recognized the declining health of the one mile shoreline at Shell Point and has designated it as critically eroding, which means that natural processes or human activity have caused or contributed to the erosion and recession of the beach to such a degree that development, recreational interests, wildlife habitat, or important cultural resources are threatened or lost. The Shell Point beach renourishment project would include the provision of approximately 15,000 cubic yards of dredged sand from an upland borrow area on the one mile beach in hopes of increasing recreational opportunities. We feel very proud to get this project, said Wakulla County Administrator Dave Edwards. Its going to help a lot of people and it will add a huge economic boost. Its not quite as much as we were hoping for, but were very happy to have it. Other proposed projects include: Florida Gulf Coast Marine Fisheries Hatchery/Enhancement Center, Escambia County. Approximately $20 million. Florida Arti cial Reef Creation and Restoration, Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, and Bay counties. Approximately $11.4 million. Pensacola Bay Living Shoreline, Escambia County. Approximately $11 million. Florida Oyster Reef Restoration Escambia, Santa Rosa, Bay and Franklin counties. Approximately $5.4 million. Scallop Enhancement for Increased Recreational Fishing Opportunity in the Florida Panhandle, Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, and Franklin counties. Approximately $3 million. Florida Bay Seagrass Recovery Project, Gulf, Franklin and Bay counties. Approximately $2.7 million.

However, the decision was not made lightly as several factors came up for debate. A concern was raised by commissioners Jerry Moore and Ralph Thomas about the amount of money that the county is putting into the community center project. My understanding was that we were going to do this with grant money, said Moore. I went along with that but now Im sorry I did. Anytime you put money into this program, I am going to object to it. I agree, said Thomas. I misunderstood. I wanted to use the $400,000 grant that we received to nish the building and continue to go after other grants for this project. County Administrator Dave Edwards attempted to clarify that the extra money would be coming from a budgeted amount already residing in the public buildings one-cent sales tax public facility infrastructure fund.

Apalachee Bay is one of the healthiest and most productive in the United States, providing a host of ecosystem services to an area that lacks industrial and commercial development. Most of the bays coastline is protected as part of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. The Bay is bounded by the Ochlockonee River in the west and the Econ na River in the east. Named for the Apalachee Indian nation, Apalachee Bay is in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, occupying an indentation of the Florida coast known as the Big Bend region. Most trails are located in Wakulla County, between the Waterfront Florida Communities of Panacea in the west and St. Marks in the east, and can be completed in two to three hours. Designed for enthusiasts of all levels, these trails invite one to enjoy shing, wildlife viewing, and photography, or simply to relax in the tranquility of an inlet as the clouds roll by. Upwelling rst magnitude springs will certainly catch your eye, as will manatees, dolphins, alligators, and ocks of white pelicans, great white and snowy egrets, bald eagles, osprey, and a checklist of other species. Funding for this project was provided by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Coastal Management Program/NOAA, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, and the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council. Trail development was assisted by Diane Delaney and Don Lesh of Applied Sustainability Enterprises, with guidance from Doug Alderson, Of ce of Greenways and Trails; Robert Baker of T-n-T Hideaway; Madeleine Carr, historian; Bill Lowrie of Big Bend Maritime Center and Scenic Byway; Mike McNamara of St. Marks Out tters; Mark Mitchell of Panacea Waterfronts; Pam Portwood of Wakulla County Tourist Development Council; and Liz Sparks of FWC Apalachicola River Paddling Trail System. The days ceremony will feature presentations on the trails and the materials developed to showcase them by Wakulla County Commissioner Ralph Thomas, Pam Portwood, Director of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council, and David Moody, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge Ranger and Chair of the Wakulla County TDC, among others. Following the presentations at 11 a.m., attendees can take a guided field trip to experience the Port Leon Loop Paddling Trail by boat and kayak or take a guided VIP Walking Tour of San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park. The event will conclude at 12:30 p.m. with a picnic lunch for trip participants sponsored jointly by the St. Marks and Panacea Waterfront Florida Partnership Communities.

From Page 1AThe proposed budget amendment would take money from a $277,000 capital outlay fund that was originally set aside to put towards an animal control center in the next scal year. The amendment proposes that $250,000 of that money be spent this year on the community center in order to get it up and running. The discussion then turned to the subject of competition with local business. I de nitely have a problem with anything the YMCA is going to do to compete with local business, said Thomas. I believe the two can co-exist, said Commissioner Richard Harden, who seemed to fully support how youth-oriented the YMCA would be. Chairman Randy Merritt went on to support the YMCA as well. I think its going to make Wakulla a more attractive place to live, he said. I know its not a game changer, but I believe it will bring in more taxpayers. I agree, but lets x the problems we have before we start throwing money into this, said Thomas. Commissioner Howard Kessler expressed disappointment at not having a contract ready for review. Im disappointed in whats come forward, he said. I expected a contract, but what we received was bullet points. Edwards explained that the bullet points were necessary in conceptualizing the body of the contract. There was no sense in spending $10,000 on a contract only to come back and have the same problems, he explained. What we want to do is get the terms straightened out so that we can draft the contract. Dr. Jim Hilyer of the appointed Community Center Advisory Board, expressed frustration at the idea of not moving forward with the YMCA. You all appointed this board and we have met seven times, each time with a majority present, he began. In all of our meetings we have always been completely supportive of the YMCA. Hilyer went on to say that the board never received the opportunity to discuss either the proposed bullet points or the proposal of an opening date slated for April 1, 2014. Ray Purvis, the YMCA representative who has been working with the county on the project shed some light on the situation. In regards to the April starting date, he explained that it is only necessary due to the fact that the Sheriffs of ce will reside in the community center building until January 1. He also went on to address the budget amendment as well as the issue of local business competition. That $250,000 is not a YMCA number, he said. As far as the communitys concerns about local businesses, Id just like to say that YMCAs are in thousands of communities. We have been responsible participants in community efforts for over 160 years around the world. Its not ever our intention to drive anybody out of business. As discussions came to a close, Kessler expressed the need to let the advisory board weigh-in and provide their expertise on the matter while Harden urged his colleagues not to let the project lose momentum for the sake of the youth of Wakulla. The motion, as suggested by County Attorney Heather Encinosa, was made to approve the proposed terms in substantial form while authorizing staff to begin drafting a contract as well as coordinating with the community center advisory board on the substantive terms of the contract. The motion also included the approval of the budget amendment reallocating funds from the one percent sales tax public facility infrastructure fund to the community center. The motion was passed 3-2 with commissioners Harden, Kessler and Merritt voting for it, while commissioners Moore and Thomas voted against.

From Page 1A Big Lagoon State Park Boat Ramp Improvement, Escambia County. Approximately $1.5 million. Bob Sikes Pier Restoration, Escambia County. Approximately $1 million. Florida Cat Point Living Shoreline Project, Franklin County. Approximately $800,000. Perdido Key Boardwalk Improvements, Escambia County. Approximately $600,000. Perdido Key Dune Restoration, Escambia County. Approximately $600,000. Each project will only be nalized after rst submitting to public hearing and comment. If successful they will be added to the seven projects that Florida has been working on which include several boat ramps, a dune restoration project and projects designed to protect and restore shorebird and sea turtle nesting habitats. The 12 projects would make up Phase III of early restoration. Early restoration projects are designed to accelerate efforts to restore natural resources in the Gulf of Mexico that were injured as a result of the Deepwater Horizon accident and are made possible under the early restoration framework agreement between BP and trustees. It allows the expediting of projects that would normally only get funded after the NRDA is complete and a nal settlement has been reached or a final court judgment has been entered. The rst two phases of state restoration projects have totaled over $11 million, which means that Florida will potentially allocate nearly $69 million, if not more, of the available $100 million designated to the early restoration process by the framework agreement. Were committed to restoring the environment and economy that families have relied upon in the Gulf for generations, Scott said. These $58 million in Florida projects represent a critical step forward in recovering from the natural resource and recreational losses that resulted from the BP oil spill. We will continue to work with our state, federal and local partners toward solutions that ensure impacted areas are revitalized for families.Restoration for Shell Point National Day of PrayerHardship application deadline is June 1Board votes 3-2 to go forward with YMCA From Page 1A The event began with worship music played by Fred McClendon and ended with closing remarks by Pastor John Dunning, both of Spirit Life Church. The main question that seemed to be at the forefront of most preachers minds was that of, Yes, today is National Day of Prayer, but why not every day? Those in attendance were emphatically encouraged to continue praying for the nation and the world every day as both are in need of guidance and healing. National Day of Prayer was designated by the United States Congress to take place each year on the rst Thursday of the month of May. The modern law that formalized its annual observance was enacted in 1952. Besides the Sopchoppy event, Pioneer Baptist also held an observance that evening of the National Day of Prayer.

Many of us believed the Great Recession would be over by now. As the Legislature continues to politic with education dollars, the local ad valorem millage for school operational purposes is as vital as ever and a wise investment for taxpayers. Within the last few months, Gulf County and just last week, Hamilton County, voters approved additional millage for public schools. Walton and Taylor County have also approved additional ad valorem millage. We are not alone in our effort. The Wakulla County School Board wisely voted to put the future of our schools in your hands. Educating our students is an investment in our future. Our schools cant take any more budget cuts, and our children and teachers shouldnt have to. Wakulla County student enrollment has been declining since 2009. Plus, we have had ve consecutive years of state budgets cuts in education. Those facts coupled with the sunset of the compressed critical operating millage have decreased revenues. Despite painfully deep cuts at the local, state and federal levels, the Wakulla County School District: Has consistently earned a district grade of A since 2006; Is consistently ranked in the top scores in the state in math and reading; Is in the top three school districts in the State of Florida for delivering our taxpayers with the best Return on Investment; Has added programs that prepare our students for college and careers. According to the property appraisers of- ce, the median home market value in Wakulla County is $105,000, which means the half mill amounts to less than $2 a month more as compared to last year. The Wakulla County School District has proven to be a strong and trusted steward of taxpayer dollars, and we can all count on that to continue. When you go to vote only one question will be on the ballot: Shall Wakulla County School District levy an ad valorem millage of one half mill beginning July 1, 2013, and ending no more than four (4) scal years later on June 30, 2017, for school operational purposes? On the Wakulla referendum for a half-mill property tax levy for public schools, I recommend voting yes. Please share this important information with your friends and family. Early voting will be on Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Supervisor of Elections Of ce. The Tuesday after Mothers Day, May 14, is the designated Special Election Day. If you have additional questions or concerns please feel free to call me or Karen J. Wells at (850) 926-0065. I cant help but feel like Im here for a reason. Wakulla has a lot going for it, and Im grateful to be a part of it. Robert Pearce is the Wakulla superintendent of schools. Editor, The News: A huge thanks to all the individuals who made NAMI Wakullas Triple Crown Derby a great event. This year our event was held at Camp Indian Springs Equestrian Center and it was the perfect venue. Each year we try to surpass the prior years goal and this year it was a success. We surpassed our goal and we must recognize the individuals and businesses that helped make this event happen. The Triple Crown Derby is the annual fundraiser for NAMI Wakulla and here in our community the people and businesses are so supportive of all of Wakulla Countys organizations. Each organization has to reach out to the same businesses and they seem to remember us all. First, we must recognize our platinum and gold sponsors; Dr. Andrea Plagge, our platinum sponsor is always there each year with NAMI Wakulla; Dr. Jay Reeves, Apalachee Mental Services, is our gold sponsor and, as with Dr. Plagge, we can always count on Apalachees support and commitment to helping us educate our community on mental health. The following businesses to whom we are so grateful are our bronze sponsors, Air-Con of Wakulla, Ameris Bank, ESG Operations Inc., Wakulla Insurance Agency, Ladies Auxiliary of the Wakulla Shrine, Wakulla Insurance Agency, Vause Mechanical and Wakulla Appraisal. We would also like to thank our Celebrity Horse Owners who were committed to their daytime jobs and yet they made time to help NAMI Wakulla raise money for training so we can continue to provide educational programs. Those individuals are Vicki Tillman, Dalynda Vause, Wakulla High School; William Snowden, editor of The Wakulla News; Amy Geiger, Capital City Bank; Sarah Stephens, Wakulla Appraisal; Zoe Mans eld, City Manager for City of St. Marks; Dr. Faith Hughes, VCA Animal Hospital; Lassie Williams; Sue Damon, independent marketing consultant; Jackie Lawhon, Clerk Administrator for City of Sopchoppy; and Ashley Roberts, Maurices Fashions. Other individuals we must recognize for their dedication in helping us raise funds are our Master of Ceremonies Merl Robb (we can count on Merl each year); and Casanova Nurse, meteorologist with WTXL, joined us this year. Marshall Taylor sang The Star-Spangled Banner and God Bless the USA. Marshall is a deputy with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce and we are proud to announce he has just signed a recording contract. Toby Jordan, student at Wakulla High School, was our bugler for the day and provided a great performance. Also, we would like thank the Rev. Keith Wallace of Lake Ellen Baptist Church, for providing our invocation. Buddy Davis along with Tim Rose of Macks Meats prepared chicken and pork for the day. Winn-Dixie came on board and provided the coleslaw and baked beans. The Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce was there to help out and we couldnt have provided the extensive changes to our venue had we not had their muscle. Pete Cochran, WCSO, thank you for staying all day making sure the electrical outlets were working and seeing to it the spectators were not sprayed with the dust from the horses as they ran the barrels. The other businesses contributing in making this event successful are Dickies BBQ, Pepsi, ACE Hardware of Crawfordville, Sams, Costcos and Huddle House. Jim Porter, of the Wakulla County Horsemans Association, and Rita Odom, NAMI Wakulla, could not make this event happen each year without you. We can always count on you to select the jockeys, provide the horses, prepare the arena for the horses to race, along with so many other jobs you step up and take care of. Thank you to the jockeys for giving of your time: Jessica Shierling, Cassie Scott, Todd Porter, Chris Odom, Erica Odom, Michelle Churchard, Alicia Porter, Samantha Dunnaway, Erika Wilson, Emma Donaldson, and Katrina Cochran. Also, we want to thank Dustin Vick for his special performance of tricks. The proceeds from the derby will allow NAMI Wakulla to continue to provide support groups, family-to-family classes, training for facilitators, monthly public programs and many other educational programs for those who suffer from mental illnesses and their families in our community. Please remember all of our programs are free. The monthly programs, held the fourth Monday of each month at the Crawfordville Womans Club cover many illnesses such as depression, suicides, bi-polar disorder, and many others with professional speakers and panels having expertise in the mental health eld, including law enforcement agencies and school of cials. Again, thank you to all of these individuals and businesses and we look forward to next year for a larger Triple Crown Derby with huge surprises. NAMI Wakulla Inc. 2140-C Crawfordville Highway Crawfordville FL 32327 (850) 926-1033Editor, The News: The Natural Wakulla column by IFAS Wakulla Extension Director Les Harrison on historical exploitation of the sassafras tree (April 25) was enjoyable. Those interested in this Florida native tree of Wakulla woods and fencerows would be aided further by a little more information on two points. Less article gave the tree species a maximum stature of 60 feet in height and 12 inches in stem diameter. Actually, Wakulla County is a place where the sassafras gets much larger than that. Indeed, Wakulla Springs State Park holds the Florida champion of the species, 113 feet high and 28 inches in diameter. Big-tree walks held in the park sometimes include visits to that giant. The park has a number of other sassafras individuals 18-20 inches in diameter. (The current national champion of the species is a squatty Kentucky tree with a diameter over 7 feet!) Because of a second point to be made, one wouldnt want to wait too long to see Wakullas large sassafrases or the extraordinary redbay trees occurring with them at Wakulla Springs. The laurel wilt disease introduced to the U.S. more than a decade ago has advanced rapidly in Florida toward our area. Should that disease prove as lethal for sassafras as it has for the closely related redbay in places so far affected, there is apprehension that mature specimens of both trees will soon be history in this area. At this time, though, there is room to hope that the consequences for the sassafras will not be as dire. (Current registers of champion trees for Florida and the U.S. can be found at www. oridaforestservice.com and www. americanforests.org, respectively.) David Roddenberry Sarracenia Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society david_roddenberry@juno.com Editor, The News: This Saturday, May 11, you are invited to a sh fry being held on the grounds of Bevis Funeral Home, Harvey Young Chapel at 3106 Crawfordville Highway in Crawfordville.

A great day of food, fun and fellowship has been planned and a $5 (tax deductible) donation/ticket can be purchased at Bevis HarveyYoung or at the Wakulla senior center ahead of time. The menu will be fresh caught, cleaned and cooked mullet, cheese grits, baked beans and a tasty desert prepared by the centers chef, Wendy Harley. Rocky and the staff of Bevis, the Senior Center staff and I hope to see you there. Tickets are limited to the rst 250 citizens. Maurice Langston Executive Director Wakulla Senior CenterBecause of incorrect information supplied to The News, a story in last weeks paper on Mosquito spraying gets underway, gave the wrong website address to visit to request spraying. The correct website for citizens to go to request mosquito spraying or anything else related to the Wakulla County Health Department is www.mywchd.com.CorrectionEditor, The News: The Special Election concerning the raising of our ad valorem (property taxes) for school operations is coming up next week. Early voting is Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Supervisor of Elections of ce with the regular election at the polls on Tuesday, May 14. The present .25 mill levy will expire shortly, so the School Board is asking for a .50 mill levy, which is a 100 percent increase on this portion of your school property taxes. Why didnt the board ask for the present .25 mill levy to be continued for another four years? Do you want any portion of your property taxes going up 100 percent for the next four years? Is this Special Election costing our school district approximately $36,000 or more? If we vote for this tax increase, will the board lower another portion of our school taxes? The choice is up to the voter. If you are for this increase vote YES. If you are AGAINST this increase vote NO. Voting is a right, a privilege and a duty as a citizen in our blessed country. The ballot only one item, so it will take less time to vote than to park your car. P.S. Thank you, teachers, for your dedication. I hope you get the raise without it being based on the dreaded FCAT.

Page 5A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 9, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy BILL RUSSELL The first group of injured soldiers to be brought to Wakulla by the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation (WQW) has come, conquered and departed. They came for us to thank them and show our gratitude and they left with us owing them even more because for a week they let us see how lucky we are to live in this county with all of its wonderful people. The arrival was spectacular and patriotic, a true heros welcome. The Sheriffs office and FHP escorted the vehicles with lights flashing. The entrance to Wakulla Springs was marked by the Fire Department aerial truck with ladder extended and a huge ag ying and other trucks with the paid and volunteer crews waving. The road into the springs was lined with people waving ags and beaming smiles. The soldiers rode in waving and returning the smiles. In one car the WQW driver looked over and saw a soldier wiping his eyes, the soldier quietly said that the wind must have gotten in his eyes. On arriving at the lodge there were more greeters and ags everywhere. The soldiers shook hands and met a lot of people in a short while before departing for Panacea. In Panacea, the Warriors went to the Rock the Dock Tournament weigh-in and were amazed at the size and numbers of sh being weighed. The announcer brought the soldiers to the stage and introduced them and the crowd went wild. The entire crowd came to their feet cheering and hurrahing these soldiers. I believe the wind got up because there was water in a lot of eyes, on stage and in the crowd. The soldiers went to Crums Mini Mall next and it was hard to get them away, they were like kids in a candy store. Ronald Fred Crum had already met with Capt. Jody Campbell and put together Penn rods, reels and tackle bags, but these guys were amazed at everything in the store. Ronald Fred showed them everything they were interested in. This was the rst of many visits to Crums. When the guys left Crums they went to Wakulla Springs for a grilled steak dinner and a nights rest. Monday morning and every morning through Friday the soldiers went to the St. Marks VFD station for a huge breakfast prepared by WQW volunteer and VFD volunteers. Ralph Thomas furnished 15 dozen eggs for the week fresh from his chicken yard. After Mondays breakfast the soldiers met their guides and had their rst fishing trip. Capt. Jody Campbell, Capt. David Fife and Capt. Mike McNamara took these guys shing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and each group of soldiers thought they had the best guide in the world. On Monday, My Way Seafood furnished fresh grouper for the fishing crews and volunteers to have a shore lunch of fresh grouper sandwiches. These guys had never enjoyed truly fresh local seafood cooked on the beach and they fell in love with it. I had never seen people enjoy seafood so much. On Monday night we all went to Wakulla Springs Baptist church for a great dinner and great conversation. Five local pastors served as waiters for the group. The pastors served the soldiers and then they sat and ate with them and visited, not preachers, just loving friends. The kids at the Wakulla Christian School had done packs of patriotic drawings for each soldier. There must have been a wind in the sanctuary because there were a lot of damp eyes. Tuesday was a great day of shing and catching, Angie at Angies Marine Supply furnished several hundred shrimp for the soldiers at no charge. McCormacks Deli in Tallahassee furnished their lunch. Tuesday night dinner was at the St. Marks VFD and was pulled pork, home cooked peas and corn plus desserts. Dinner was provided by the Beck family of Tallahassee. Wednesday was a shorter day of shing but a lot of sh were caught. Wednesday night the Posey family treated the guys to dinner at Poseys Up the Creek. This was an amazing display of seafood consumption. All of the guys loved the seafood and the Poseys kept it coming. The smallest soldier ate 18 oysters raw, two orders of scallops, an order of gator and an order of sh dip. He then nished off two ounder that the big guys couldnt eat all of. Thursday was not much of a shing day but the guys did get to go to Sopchoppy. They had never heard of Sopchoppy and did not believe there was something called worm gruntin. They went home with Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin T-shirts to go with their Crums shirts and Keep Wakulla County Beautiful shirts. They were proud of their souvenirs. Thursday night we had a going away celebration. We were trying to thank the soldiers and they were trying to thank us. The soldiers had appreciation plaques for the guides and for the Crum family. There were tears and laughter all evening. These soldiers were thanking us when we owed so much to them, they let us see all that is good in our county. All kinds of people supported this effort. We had three commissioners who supported us, Ralph Thomas, Howard Kessler and RichardHarden. Pastors from ve different churches and people from every walk of life supported these soldiers. When the soldiers left Friday morning, it was blowing and raining, this accounted for all of the water in the eyes of the volunteers and soldiers. Our county had been blessed while trying to do something to thank these guys. One last thing I need to say: I have heard that these guys did not look like the severely injured soldiers we were trying to help. That is true, they didnt look like that. We took what the Army would trust us with. One of these guys only had one Purple Heart; the rest had multiple Purple Hearts from multiple deployments overseas. All but one is being put out of the service because of their injuries. The program the Army has required that a sergeant be in charge and I suppose he had submitted daily reports. When we returned the soldiers to Ft. Benning we were told that our program had exceeded all expectations and had set the bar higher than any recreational therapy program. We were told that the soldiers who had been withdrawn before were reporting how great it was down here. Thank you to all of the people involved, all of the supporters and all of the donors. It takes a community to heal a soldier and it took six soldiers to show us again what a great community we have.Bill Russell is Ochlockonee Bay VFD re chief and a volunteer with Warriors and Quiet Waters.Editor, The News: Wakulla County residents face a special election in May on a School Board referendum. Voters may cast their ballot by absentee this week that means walking in to the Supervisor of Elections of ce with your absentee ballot, early voting on Saturday May 11, or going to the polls on May 14, our designated Special Election Day. Here in Wakulla County we are blessed to have one of the best school systems in the state. It has been that way for a couple of generations and has been a major driver of county growth. On May 14, the voters of Wakulla will have the opportunity to choose to continue to have a strong school system by voting yes for our schools. Over the past several years, while experiencing painfully deep cuts, the Wakulla County School District has continued to consistently earn a district grade of A and be ranked among the top for state scores in math and reading. The Great Recession severely impacted much of the state and still continues to impact our county. As a result our schools have taken repeated budget cuts that have affected our children and teachers. Additionally, student enrollment in the county has been declining since School Year 2008-09. Despite these challenges, the district has proven to be a strong and trusted steward of taxpayer dollars. Wakulla is in the Top 3 school districts in the State of Florida for delivering the best Return on Investment to the taxpayers of the county. So what will it cost Wakulla residents if it passes? The average cost per home will be less than $2 per month. Thats taking into account the average home market value of $105,000 in our county before homestead exemption. While the school district needs to use some of this funding to support school operations and expenses, it will allow money for several critical areas. For instance, the increased funding will be used toward enhancing career and technical educational programs to help students get jobs; supporting highly quali ed teachers; preserving outstanding student academic, athletics and arts programs; improving school safety; and assuring appropriate technology readiness. Education is key to casting an informed vote. On Thursday, May 9, at 7 p.m., the Wakulla County Democratic Party invites everyone regardless of party af liation to join us for an educational program at the Wakulla County Library located at 4330 Crawfordville Hwy. The program will discuss the state of Wakulla County Schools, the School Board referendum, and will feature our guest speaker, Superintendent Bobby Pearce. Please join us for light refreshments to hear Superintendent Pearce and learn the facts about the upcoming Special Election. Thank you, Wakulla County Democratic Executive Committee wakullademocrats.orgreaders speak out More OpinionsSoldiers with Warriors and Quiet Warriors visit Wakulla Editor, The News: When the For sale sign appeared at the Shell Point Resort, it got me to thinking: Beachgoers already use the entire waterfront from the present county park property all the way to the Seafarers Chapel/Coast Guard Auxiliary building. The county badly needs a boat ramp in the area for local and tourist use. If we bought the whole resort property, thered be plenty of parking for boat trailers and I can picture families picnicking in the shade of those old oak trees. As the countys population grows, well need more parks, particularly beachfront parks. Most Wakullans want to keep our county an unspoiled outdoor destination for visitors as well as for ourselves. What an opportunity to boost tourism and at the same time, improve life for our county residents! I wondered just how much it would cost? Turns out, the asking price is $2.1 million from a bank, so the selling price should be much less. Were expecting millions of BP money. Any initial loss of tax base from this public investment would be more than offset by the jobs, tourist dollars spent, and taxes that this initiative would create. Probably some investment group will beat the county to it and build whatever they choose, but I hope the county and its citizens are the winners. One hundred years ago, Saint Petersburg made a decision to develop its waterfront with marinas, parks and hotels rather than industry and private ownership. Our county commission faces that crossroads now. I hope they consider this proposal and buy the former resort while this exceptional deal is possible. We and our children could enjoy the dividends of this investment for years to come in the form of enhanced tax revenues, increased employment and keeping Wakullas coast as the place where tourists can enjoy themselves with full amenities. If we let this chance slip away, many of us will keep commuting out of county for work as we pass vacationers driving through on their way to Franklin County. Marcia Bjerregaard Shell PointOpportunitys knocking in Shell Point Summerwood Drive adoption Program set on school referendum Vote yes on school referendumEditor, The News: I wish to begin this letter by thanking many people. The county commissioners (all ve Commissioners), the county administrator, county astaff, county attorney, Wakulla County Public Works and ESG, Cleve Fleming and Brent Pell, PE. To all I personally thank you for your efforts regarding Summerwood Drive, roadway adoption. It has been many years in the making and I am glad to say that the adoption of the roadway has nally taken place. To the community of Summerwood and Fallwood I wish to thank you for you show of support at the county commission meeting on May 6. Without the continued support many of you have shown over the last seven years, the adoption of the road could not have been accomplished. With this road adoption we can now be assured that emergency service vehicles, fire trucks and school buses can safely access our properties, protecting our families. As many of you know this has been a long process beginning with my efforts in 2006. Although it has been a signi cantly long process it is a pleasure to see that individuals, government and community involvement can, when exercised correctly, accomplish things larger than individuals. As many who know me, will attest, roads are a particular topic of interest to me, as I personally believe that without roads little or no improvement can ever occur. For those of you who are business leaders and those who are environmentalists, I state, that NOTHING gets accomplished without roads and infrastructure. Not only do these roads and infrastructure improvements promote access for homes, businesses, and eco-tourism, they also save critical environmental systems by providing the safest route through sensitive ecosystems to the preferred destination. Thank you! Bret D. Hammond Crawfordville PHOTOS BY JO ANN PALMER/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSWounded soldiers visited Wakulla for a week of shing as part of the Warriors and Quiet Waters. Capt. Jody Campbell recounts his experience as guide for a group of soldiers, Page 12A. Editor, The News: Seven years ago, my husband and I made an investment in our two daughters education by enrolling them in Wakulla County schools. We havent regretted a single day of it, even though the state has slashed our countys education funding by nearly $4 million. The 2013 Legislature passed its budget last week, and education funding is still lower than it was in 2008. Florida does not have the will or means to adequately fund public education. The future of our childrens education is in our hands. The referendum is for the levy of an ad valorem millage of .5 mill. These dollars could be invested in career and job training for students, supporting highly quali ed teachers, preserving our music, arts and athletic programs. Our school system always been a good steward of taxpayer dollars, and under Superintendent Pearce that will continue. Support this referendum by voting yes during early voting on Saturday, May 11 or at the polls Tuesday, May 14. Missy Brown Rudd mbrudd@gmail.com

(850) 926-7102 Oh for a memory like momsWakulla youth fast to ght hunger OUT TO PASTORBy JAMES L. SNYDER In growing up, one of the outstanding things in my relationship with my mother had to do with her memory. She could remember everything. All I had to do was ask dear old mom and she knew the answer. She knew everything. No matter the topic, she had an opinion about it, which truly amazed me as a young person. Before I went to school, my mother was my entire world. From the time I got up in the morning until she tucked me in bed at night, she was the master of my world. Whatever I could do, she was the one who allowed me to do it. Looking back, I can remember when my father got home from work in the evening he gave my mother a little break from looking after me and my brother and sister. If memory serves me correctly, my father watched us by lying on the couch snoring. I never could gure out how he could do that but it was his way of watching us and helping mom. As a young person, anything I wanted I had to requisition it from dear old mom. The thing that always amazed me was that she always had what I needed. I have often wondered how she could do that. But then, she was mom. My weekly allowance came from my mother. It took me a long time to realize the money for my allowance came from my father. I remember coming home from the second grade with homework to do that just baf ed me. All I had to do was ask mom and she could explain it to me like nobody else could. Mothers know everything and remember everything. What my mother knew only my mother could know. It was as if she could read my mind. It was as if she had eyes in the back of her head. It was so bad that I could not get away with anything. Believe me; I tried very hard to get away with something. For some reason my mother knew what I was going to do days before I actually thought about doing it. I am not sure who is credited with designing the first memory board for computers, but I know who designed the memory board for people. I rmly believe that mothers were the first computer designed and wired by God. Why in the world do you think they call it the motherboard? It is no accident that they come up with this term. My mother had a tremendous memory. This is the difference between mothers and fathers. Mothers cannot forget anything and fathers cannot remember anything. Together they make an invincible team for raising children. It was not until I became a teenager that a little click developed between my mother and me. I began to realize that my memory did not always harmonize with hers on some issues. For example. My mother would tell me, You must be home by 10 oclock. At least, that is what she said she told me after the fact. When I came in at 11 oclock, she reminded me of what she told me. For the life of me, I could not remember her telling me to be home by 10 oclock. I told you to clean up your room. Searching my memory board, I could not nd any indication that she told me this. I am not saying that she did not; I am just saying that our memories did not coincide on a variety of issues when I became a teenager. What struck me about my mother was she could remember conversation she had with me three years ago word for word. As I get older, I began to doubt the accuracy of her memory. The problem with that was, I had no memory of anything and so I had to rely upon her memory. Now that I am a parent, it is apparent to me that memory is a rather funny thing. I am not sure that my mother was in this category, but my memory is of such a nature that I can remember things that never took place. Not only that, I can describe it in detail. As a teenager I remember coming into the room and my mother sitting there looking out the window with a little smile on her face. What are you thinking about? Oh, I was just remembering some things, she said. Then she turned and looked out the window again and I left her to her memories. In celebrating Mothers Day, I cannot help but think of the many wonderful memories each mother cherishes. Their children will always be children. Memory is a delightful thing and sometimes can be very selective. I am sure, when a mother engages in the ne art of memory, they are all good memories. Solomon was probably thinking about his mother when he wrote, Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all (Proverbs 31:2829 KJV). You cannot put a price on a good memory.Rev. James L.

For weeks these young people have been raising money by soliciting support from family and friends, bake sales, and bombing our yards with amingos. Following the outline of a program by World Vision, these participants in the 30-Hour Famine spent the weekend at Christ Church along with Father John Spicer, Rector at Christ Church; Janise Padgett and Twila Murdoch, youth group sponsors; and Tim Smith, Youth Minister at St. Lukes. The group decided that their proceeds would go to hungry children in Burundi and the U.S. They broke their fast at 6:30 p.m., eating food that has been developed by aid organizations to make in bulk and easily transported directly to hungry children. World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide.

The game was originally set to be played on Thursday, May 2, but was postponed because of rain and for the next two days, until the weather nally faired off on Sunday. Wakulla got things started at the top of the second inning when, with one out, Bailey Metcalf hit over the head of the Rams left elder for a double. Bryan Nichols followed suit with a double of his own and an RBI, scoring Metcalf and putting the rst run on the board. Rutherford answered at the bottom of the inning as their rst batter got on base with a double and was batted around by an in eld hit. Before the inning was over a shallow hit to center eld, although caught by a hustling Brandon Nichols in center eld, was able to score the runner on third, making the score 1-1. In the top of the third with one out, Micah Gray got on base with a hard hit to the Rams second baseman. A shot to center eld for Dalton Dugger appeared as if it would add a base runner, but an unexpected diving catch turned into a double play as Gray was caught without tagging up. Rutherford took the lead in the next half of the inning as, with two outs, a double earned them a base runner and an in- eld error would allow the score to become 2-1. Nichols drew a walk to begin the forth inning and when Brandon Geiger was hit by a pitch, the Eagles found themselves with runners on rst and second base with no outs. Jay Estes then laid a bunt down the third base line, loading the bases. With one out Bryan Nichols hit a liner over the second baseman scoring his brother, Brandon Nichols, along with Geiger and putting his team in the lead 3-2. But the Rams would score a run to tie it up 3-3 in the bottom of the inning. With one out and a runner on rst, pitcher Jake Walker attempted a pick-off that got past rst baseman Gray, allowing the runner to get to second and a hard center eld hit brought him in before the end of the inning. Scoring would cease in the fth, but picked back up in the top of the sixth as Estes got things started with a double to deep left eld. A sacri ce by Metcalf then put Estes in scoring position and great placement by Jeff Barnes would bring in the leading run. Rutherford then found themselves with bases loaded and no outs in the bottom of the inning. A hard shot to left eld would score a run, but heads-up defensive playing by Wakulla caught a Rams runner trying to steal third base. Walker and Gray then ended the inning with a pick-off at rst base. The score remained 4-4 through the seventh, forcing the game into extra innings. The Eagles rst two batters, Estes and Metcalf would get on base with no outs and a bunt by Bryan Nichols put runners on second and third as Barnes then loaded the bases. Dillon Norman put Wakulla in the lead 5-4 with a base hit. Gray, with an RBI of his own would make the score 6-4 and an out eld hit by Dugger scorec the seventh run before the end of the inning. The Wakulla defense held the Rams at the bottom of the eighth ending the game with a nal score of 7-4 and a noteworthy performance by the winning pitcher, Jake Walker, who pitched all eight innings.

About two months ago, I was in Crawfordville Auto and Tire and noticed a brochure about a shing tournament and golf tournament. I asked Dan Hinchee about it and he rst introduced me to Warriors and Quiet Warriors Southern Chapter. He said the golf tournament and shing tournament were to raise money to bring warriors to Wakulla County shing. I told him I wanted to get involved and take some of the soldiers shing. After talking with Bill Russell I found out when they were coming to Wakulla County and he told me that Capt. Mike McNamara with St. Marks Out tters was handling the shing. I contacted Mike and told him I really wanted to donate three days of shing to take some of these guys out. I talked to a good friend of mine, Capt. David Fife, told him what I was doing and asked if he wanted to donate three days to this and go along with me and help. He said youre not going without me. We crossed off those dates on our calendars, wrote down WARRIORS in big letters and couldnt wait for the day to come. Shortly after we knew the dates, I was talking with one of my charters, Mary Jackson, and told her what we were doing. She was so excited and said, I want to go and help. Ill bring all the food and lunches. She said that her dad was in the Marines and after he passed away her mother spent most of her time working with wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. I said I would love to have her go along but had to get the OK. On Sunday, April 28, six warriors from Ft. Benning came to Wakulla County for a week of relaxation. Fishing is considered therapy whether you are catching or just shing. These guys came to the county for some therapy on the water and I just hoped it would be catching and not just shing. On Monday morning around 7 a.m., David, Mary and I met the warriors for the rst time at the St. Marks Volunteer Fire Department. We had a wonderful breakfast prepared by Laura Williams, who prepared breakfast every morning for the warriors and other volunteers. She got up every morning in Tallahassee and drove down to St. Marks to x them breakfast and, man, was it good. The St. Marks Fire Department provided their facility and many of their members, especially Rod and Donna Strickland, were there every morning to make sure everything was OK. They opened the station up at 5 a.m. every morning so breakfast could be prepared. After breakfast, David and I went and got gas and shrimp for our rst day on the water with these guys. Mike had his three meet him at the old fort in St. Marks. Mary showed them the way to my house and when David and I got there they were ready to go. Yep, they allowed Mary to go and man did she and the guys hit it off. Mary shed with us the rst day but due to work wasnt able to sh the following two days though she did call each day to see how it was going. Someone up above was looking after us because fishing was pretty superb. We let Mary sh also and she caught a 28-inch red on her rst cast. Keith had never shed before Monday and one the second day was casting better than most people I take fishing who know how to cast. Everyone on the boat bonded so well and it was like we had known these guys forever. I dont know how many charters I have had over the past 17 years but I laughed more on this trip and had more fun than a person should have. The rst thing Keith caught was a turtle. He snagged a greenback turtle in the ipper. We got it in, got the hook out and let it go. He then caught a dog- sh, blue runner, lady sh, pin sh, hardhead cat and what we thought was a big ounder the way it was coming up. Turned out to be a piece of an old crab trap. Made an excellent picture and I have it on my wall. The last exciting thing he caught was the marker buoy. He said it didnt hit hard but did ght pretty well. We went in for lunch and Dan Hinchee did a fabulous shore lunch for everyone at Shell Point Beach. Some of the best grouper I have ever had and Bill Russells wife made the best tartar sauce I have ever had. After lunch I told them David and I were gonna try and put them on some r eds. Robert said he had caught trout but never any reds. We got anchored up and David and I threw out two corks with shrimp, handed them to Keith and Robert and immediately the corks went down. Keith didnt know what a red sh was and Robert was hooked into his rst ever. We had two 25-inch reds in the boat and it just got better from there. We limited out on reds and headed to the hill. SECOND DAY The next day was primarily trout and, man, did we get into them. We had a cameraman on the boat and just as he was getting ready to get on another boat and head in, the trout turned on. For 35 minutes all we did was take sh off their lines. Thirty minutes after the cameraman left, Robert caught and released a 32-inch red. It wasnt on lm but Ill guarantee you he wont forget it. Oh yeah, Keith hooked a leatherback turtle that probably weighed 500 pounds. The head on that turtle looked like a soccer ball and we didnt get him in the boat to release it. The only picture was from a distance. That afternoon Keith caught a 5-pound trout and was casting like he had done this forever. The reds didnt cooperate though we did have a few. THIRD DAY On Wednesday the wind was horrible and shing lousy. Bryan did catch a 4-pound trout, which made the day all worth it. I want to thank Angie at AMS for the shrimp each day and Jimmy Miller, Diana Nichols and the Vietnam Vets of America Chapter 96 for donating money for some of the gas in my boat and half of it was given back to Warriors and Quiet Warriors Southern Chapter. David and I regret not being able to fish with Sam, Ronnie and Jason but I know they had a great time with Capt. Mike. They were all talking about all the huge number of trout they caught and Jason, the youngest of the soldiers could not stop talking about the 4 foot bonnet-head shark he caught. He said he liked catching big sh. Enough thanks cant be given to Anthony Stevens, Bill Russell and the entire board of Warriors and Quiet Waters Southern Chapter for making this happen. Im sure I missed someone and to those others out there who helped and donated money I say thank you. The six soldiers who came to Wakulla and enriched our lives were Staff Sgt. Ronnie Salters from Olive Branch, Miss., Staff Sgt. Robert Harris from Phenix City, Ala., Cpl. Brian Noaker from Mobile, Ala., Sgt. First Class Sam Graham from Gautier, Miss., Staff Sgt. Keith Meyer from Columbus, Ga., and Specialist Jason Wilson from Ft. Benning, Ga. All are on active duty at Ft. Benning and with guys like this protecting our country we are in the most capable of hands. All politics were put aside and the outpouring of support from the citizens of Wakulla and Leon County to make sure these guys had a great time was outstanding. It was an awesome experience and I feel honored to have been part of it. This was something Capt. David and I will never forget and look forward to the next soldiers coming to Wakulla County. Our nation owes more than can ever be repaid to the brave men and women who serve to defend our freedom.

Page 13A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 9, 2013 www.thewakullanews.coma peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiencesCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD The international connection We have for the longest time, advocated that Wakulla County should be a destination for the international visitor. Wakulla Diving Center certainly is a destination, as better than half the advanced students come from abroad. A few months ago we had four visitors for advanced rebreather training visit from Colombia. These people came to us seeking our expertise. What they usually take with them, beyond knowledge and skills, is a number of technical solutions, designed and manufactured by our centers research department. The centers staff have become very used to seeing and supporting these visitors and their individual requirements for diving technology and long-distance travels. What took everyone by surprise, though, was a customer who walked in the door last Thursday: a visitor from Japan, who spent his 10 days of annual vacation in cave country, speci cally around Lake City. His enthusiasm was contagious as he investigated new options available to his rebreather that were developed in our facility. He had driven over 150 miles just to see us, and asked very politely if he could see a demonstration of our upgraded parts for his rebreather. He had read about it on the Internet, and wanted to see it for himself. When comparing the new system to his existing one his eyebrows popped up, and he uttered Japanese terms we could not understand, but which we took as approval. We were all taken by his excitement when he realized that the upgrades he wanted could be installed in 15 minutes. He ended up acquiring many more products from us, none of which are available anywhere else in the world, happily investing in toys he will take home to show off. This gentleman was a real delight, and pleasure to deal with. Unfortunately he had to leave the same day for the ight back home the next morning. The cultural exchange, while appearing entertaining in this case, makes the whole business side very interesting and stimulating. We still dont know how to pronounce his name, unfortunately, but his visit certainly made our day!Nothing happens without great teamwork in the Auxiliary. This weekly column is one example. This week, Duane Treadon deserves thanks for submitting the following article. This past weekend our Flotilla held its monthly meeting with 13 members attending including the ADSO-MA Lynn Mott, who drove to Crawfordville from Pensacola. Lynn is the aid to the District materials staff officer as well as our very own Division 1 materials staff of cer. This position in the past was little more than placing orders to restock materials like handouts, coloring books, stickers, information brochures, and give aways for the Flotillas public education, program visitor, public affairs and vessel safety check programs. Over the past year this position has grown in responsibility and now serves a critical function in material accountability for the Coast Guard. Limited funds are given to the Coast Guard from Congress to spend on equipment to assist the Auxiliary to perform its missions. As with any item bought with taxpayers money, we are held accountable for explaining why it is needed as well as maintaining items purchased. Though limited, these funds have been used to purchase life jackets, signal mirrors, P.P.E.B (Personal Position Emergency Beacon), safety lines, communication radios, and support materials in educating the boating public on best safe boating practices. Recent times have seen the Materials Of cers roll move from just issuing to tracking inventory, monitoring how it is used and how well it is being maintained. Just like the active duty and reserve Coast Guard crew, Auxiliary members are required to have certain equipment when they are going out on the water. Most of this equipment is personal protective equipment and includes items like proper life jacket, signal mirror, whistle, personal emergency strobe light and other items needed in an emergency. For the vessel, equipment is related to the safe operation of the vessel in an emergency situation like tow lines, loud hailers, communication equipment, and rst aid supplies to name a few. Members must have on le with the materials officer a form that lists all of the personal protection equipment they have. This form lists equipment issued by the Coast Guard and equipment that the member may have purchased himself. All equipment must be inspected every six month to ensure it is in good working condition. As with any new system, questions and confusion can occur. Members were very appreciative to have Lynn make the long drive to join us and explain the new process. Not only was she able to explain what needed to happen, but she also explained why the changes occurred. Auxiliary members are much like most people we dont like change, but when someone like Lynn takes time to help us all understand why the changes are necessary, it is easier to get with the program. A lesson the general and professional boater can take from this is that knowing your equipment, what you have on board, how to use it, its condition, and what is lacking can and will make you a better and safer boater. If you havent done it in a while, take 15-30 minutes and go over the equipment you have on board your boat. Do you have all the safety equipment required, is it in working condition, what is missing, would you be prepared to handle an emergency situation. When the boat starts sinking is not the time to gure out what dewatering/bailer device you are going to use. When you loose your way is not the time to see if you have proper navigation equipment on board. When your engine dies too far offshore for cell phones to work is not the time to gure out how you will communicate with others. A little time on shore can save you from a great loss at sea. If you would like to talk to us about scheduling a free vessel safety check, please contact Steve Hults, our Flotilla Staff Officer for vessel exams at fso-ve@uscgaux. net. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux.net for membership information or contact our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Human Resources Fran Keating at fso-hr@ uscgaux.net As Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident. Know your boat and what you have onboard. Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 9, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comreports Law Enforcement and CourtsSheri s ReportOn April 28, Deputies Scott Powell and Richard Moon investigated a report of a reckless vehicle that was narrowly avoiding traffic on U.S. Highway 319. Emergency lights and sirens were activated but the motorist refused to stop. The motorist approached New Light Church Road and slowed down from 60 miles per hour to 10 miles per hour before dropping a passenger off on the side of the road. The vehicle accelerated and continued toward Leon County. The subject who got out of the vehicle told deputies he asked the driver to let him out on several occasions. He signed a false imprisonment af davit for prosecution but did not know the full name of the suspect. The Leon County Sheriffs Of ce, Tallahassee Police Department and Florida Highway Patrol were contacted but could not locate the vehicle. In other activity reported by the sheriffs of ce this week: APRIL 25 Ike Thomas of Crawfordville reported a criminal mischief to a rental property. Carpeting was removed from the residence and multiple holes in the dry wall were discovered along with paint and crayon marks on the walls. Walls in the residence were also demolished. The estimated damage was $12,000. Deputy Marshall Taylor investigated. Steven Kelly of Crawfordville reported a residential burglary. The victim reported the theft of collectable coins, tools and medications. The property loss was estimated at $25,000. Sgt. Jeremy Johnston and Detective Clint Beam investigated. An arrest warrant was requested for Roger Nathaniel Rosier, 36, of Sopchoppy for the charge of falsely identifying himself to law enforcement. Deputy Ian Dohme was attempting to serve two warrants but his patrol vehicle computer software program was down and he was unable to pull up a photograph of the suspect. Later, Deputy Dohme was successful in pulling up the suspects photograph and determined he had been given a false name. Sgt. Ryan Muse and Deputy Dohme attempted to serve Rosier a second time later in the shift and their suspect refused to come out of his home and continued to claim he was not the person they wanted. APRIL 26 Deputy Vicki Mitchell and Sgt. Danny Harrell responded to a disturbance complaint at a Crawfordville business. When they arrived, they allegedly found Donald Curtis Finch, 51, of Crawfordville creating a disturbance and in possession of a knife. During the pat down process, Sgt. Harrell allegedly discovered marijuana and a smoking pipe on Finch. He was charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The wallet of a 14year-old male was discovered on a school bus with marijuana inside. The student admitted the missing property was his when he spoke to Assistant Principal Simeon Nelson at Wakulla High School. Deputy Scott Rojas issued a civil citation for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and released him to his mother. The marijuana weighed less than a gram. Shannon Faye Vernon, 33, of Sopchoppy was arrested for retail theft after Wal-Mart Asset Protection staff allegedly observed the suspect remove items from the store without paying for them. Fruit, food and beverages, valued at $87, were discovered in the possession of the suspect. Deputy Vicki Mitchell investigated. The Youth and Community Services (COPS) Unit was informed of a 14-year-old Wakulla High School juvenile who was being harassed by other district students. The victim was being threatened by students wanting to ght him. Deputies Gibby Gibson, Scott Rojas and Joe Page investigated. An anonymous complaint was received about juveniles walking down Mohave Road and Catawba Trail with a pistol. The Airsoft pistol was recovered by Deputy Scott Powell, who informed the juveniles mother of the incident. The information was sent to the COPS Unit. Richard Degagne of Crawfordville reported a grand theft at his home. Computer equipment, a vehicle, electronics and printer were reported stolen. The missing property is valued at $2,475 and a suspect has been identified. The vehicle was recovered in Tallahassee but tools, a GPS and a homemade piggy bank were stolen. Deputy Gibby Gibson investigated. Greg Ward of Crawfordville reported nding personal paperwork and a binder in the road on Shadeville Highway. The owner of the property was identi ed through a Social Security number, but Deputy Richard Moon was unable to contact her. The property was secured at the WCSO.

Special to The NewsWith spring 2013 around the corner, many Americans will nally be venturing out to enjoy their yards. And according to an online survey conducted by Harris Interactive in December 2012, those with a yard/landscape will be looking forward to three yard and landscape activities most of all: relaxing, planting, and spending time with family. The study, conducted among more than 2,800 U.S. adults (ages 18+) on behalf of PLANET, the national trade association of landscape professionals, nds that yard/landscape ownership is highly prevalent (88 percent) among Americans. In fact, 81 percent of those with a yard/ landscape say the upkeep of their yard/landscape is important to the look of their home. When asked the chief reason for maintaining or improving their yard/ landscape, yard/landscape owners are most likely to cite showing pride in their home (42 percent) as the primary motivator, although creating an outdoor relaxing space (16 percent) and raising or protecting their property value (15 percent) also win double-digit support. But, when it comes to what the yard or landscape is commonly used for, relaxing rises to the top (26 percent), followed by planting owers/vegetables (17 percent) and spending time with family (14 percent). Not surprisingly, those with children under 18 in the household are more likely to view the yard as a place where the whole family can interact, and where kids can play. Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 9, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comAs if kudzu is not bad enough for Wakulla County and the rest of the south, now there is a kudzu bug. It eats kudzu, but unfortunately it eats many other plants, too. This pest was discovered in the Sopchoppy area last week populating a citrus tree. Kudzu bugs are native to East Asia and were rst detected in northeastern Georgia in October 2009. Research has indicated its introduction into the United States occurred from a single female lineage originating in Japan. They have quickly established reproducing populations and spread throughout Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, and moved into Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi and Virginia. These pests are excellent hitchhikers which will cling to people and vehicles moving through an infested area. They are also good iers and can travel long distances. Individually this nuisance is easy to overlook as they are about the size of a lady bug. Their olive green to brownish color helps individuals blend into any native landscape. While there is a family resemblance with its squared tail and blunt dome shaped head, Kudzu bugs are not beetles. They are a nuisance stink bugs that secrete a foul odor and are capable of staining a variety of surfaces. As the name suggest they will dine on kudzu, but will also move into other crops such as soybeans, green beans and other legumes. There is serious concern these exotic pest will be one more recently imported impediment to production of cotton and soybean in the Big Bend region. In addition to legumes, they are attracted to a host of ornamental shrubs and native plants. With no known predators in the north Florida, the potential impact on native plants is in question. Kudzu bugs occupy their summers by busily eating plants. They seem to be particularly active when exploring a diversity of plants in spring before kudzu leafs out and in late autumn to get the last meal before overwintering. With approaching cooler late autumn temperatures, they actively leave their host plants to overwinter in leaf litter, underneath tree bark and in other protected locations. Kudzu bugs particularly like congregating in masses on light-colored surfaces during their active season. During the day they also like to gather in masses in the shade portion of structures regardless of color. Much like stinkbugs, adults will excrete an odor as a defense mechanism when disturbed. The defense chemical these insects secrete is capable of staining the natural or treated surface of the houses and buildings, and will mar the nish on vehicles. In its native habitat, there are up to three generations of these pests per year. In the warmer latitudes of Wakulla County the reproduction rate may exceed the recorded rate in Asia. Any pyrethroid based insecticide applied directly to the bugs can kill them. However, the bugs mobility and their overwhelming numbers make them dif cult to control.

The sufficient rains are maintaining the last of the cool season vegetables while the summer garden gets its start. Peas are a popular spring vegetable which grows well in local sandy soils. This ancient plant is native to temperate regions from the Mediterranean to northwest India and ourishes in north Floridas early spring and autumn gardens when the weather cooperates. Cultivation has been recorded for over 4,000 years. Many cultures in its native range considered peas a dietary staple during the late bronzeage well into the Iron Age. Like many other early foods the ease of preservation and long shelflife made peas a popular crop. Constant selection by early farmers improved yield and localized the peas to speci c areas. Some academics consider these early on-farm selections one of the rst steps at the dawn of agriculture and a move away from the hunter-gather societies of Neolithic Eurasia. Initially consumed dry as an early snack food or complement to the meat of the day, peas became the basis for soups, stews, porridge and other creative and imaginative culinary uses. These plants were useful to science too. The showy owers of peas made excellent subjects for Austrian Monk Gregor Mendels study of what turned out to be the foundation of modern genetics. The monastery, in what is now the Czech Republic, proved to be an ideal location for cross pollinating an array of pea varieties with the purpose of determining dominant traits. The quick growing plant made it easy for Mendel to study characteristics across many generations. For todays dietary considerations, peas are a vegetable which contain starch. The primary source of energy in vegetables is from starch. Most vegetables have a high water and ber content so the amount of starch in a serving tends to be much lower than other sources of starch, such as grain products. Some vegetables have more starch including peas and other legumes. There are currently three pea varieties in the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension demonstration garden: Snow pea, sugar snap and Alaska English Pea are all growing well and producing in Wakulla County. To learn more about growing and using peas in Wakulla County, contact your UF/IFAS Wakulla Extension Of ce at 850-926-3931 or http:// wakulla.ifas.u .edu.Les Harrison is UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Director and Shelley Swenson is UF/IFAS Wakulla County Family and Consumer Sciences Agent.I had the privilege of spending a day recently with children from Medart Elementary School for their annual Project Learning Tree (PLT). During PLT, community representatives make presentations on nature, conservation and sustainability practices. The 2013 theme was Wakulla Life is Nice! and was coordinated by Brooke Mohr, a nationally recognized Project Learning Tree facilitator. Incidentally she also is an incredibly talented Wakulla County 4-H leader. I decided to speak on water conservation since we live in such a wonderful place with Wakulla Springs being a showcase to the world of clean, fresh water. Through an imaginary trip to the springs, the children and I noted the clear water and discussed how and why it remains that way. We concluded that we were quite special to have the springs so close by to enjoy. I reminded that that people visit Wakulla Springs from all over the work to witness the clear, clean water and that is not that way for many people around the world. I used a poem written by a student who was the same age as they when she wrote, When I look through my water window, I see river water for fishing, I see lake water for fun. I see ocean water for sur ng. Weve got water by the ton! But when I look a little closer for the part that we can use, I see weve only got a little; if I waste it we ALL lose! Wow, what a powerful message! The students were then reminded that even if a world map looks like it contains a lot of water or 71 percent of its surface, 96 percent is salt water and the other 4 percent is fresh. When looking at it through this lens, the amount of water on the earths surface looks somewhat different. We decided that there was water, water everywhere, but only a few drops to drink. I suggested ways that they might assist to safe the 4 percent of fresh water on the earths surface. The United State Environmental Protection Agency offered some great facts to allow the children to get a better grip on how people use or misuse water. For example, did you know: A household can save up to 20,000 gallons of water each year by xing leaky faucets. A leaky faucet puts 3-5 gallons of water down the drain every minute. More than ve gallons of water is wasted if the tap water is running while brushing teeth. Only a halfgallon of water is used if the toothbrush is just wetted and rinsed. This results in a 4 gallons savings each time teeth are brushed. Washing dishes with the tap running can use an average of 30 gallons of water. Washing a car at home, using a hose, uses up to 150 gallons of water. Washing a car at a self-service car wash uses 5 to 10 gallons. Using a sponge and a bucket, uses 1.5 gallons. Taking a bath uses between 30-50 gallons of water. A 4-minute shower takes 20 gallons. If your shower is longer, it could use more water than a bath so the secret is with either a bath or shower, to get in, wash and turn the water off. A low- ow showerhead will also assist in the saving of water. I then asked the children to sign a pledge. It read: PLEDGE TO SAVE WATER. I know that our Earths water supply is limited. I will do my part. I will turn off the water while brushing my teeth and I will shorten my shower to 4 minutes. Ninety-nine percent of the Medart Elementary students who participated signed the pledge. I was proud of them and the decision they made. I left the school encouraged and exhausted with a renewed appreciation for the teachers in Wakulla County! By SHELLEY SWENSONWakulla Extension ServiceGREEN LIVING Medart students learn value of Earths water PHOTO BY LES HARRISON/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS In the garden now In the garden now Peas PeasBy JENNY DRUDASpecial to The NewsSpring is a time of renewal and new beginnings. What better time to clean your slate and prepare for the activities of spring and early summer. Here are 10 tips to help you lighten your load: 1. A good rule of thumb for keeping something is if you USE it, LOVE it or NEED it. 2. To keep yourself motivated remember purging clutter frees up your resources (time, space, money, attention) for the things in life that you REALLY want. 3. To expand on the motivation idea, create a vision of how youd like things to be and use that to measure your stuff against how does it t into the dream? 4. Facilitate removal of stuff from your house by having boxes on hand and designating a temporary staging/storage area. 5. If you are overwhelmed by the de-cluttering process, start with the obvious and easy stuff rst. The momentum that builds as you see results will help you move on to the harder stuff. Then there are the voices in your head. Lets address some of these: 6. I may use it one day. Ask yourself: how much space (and other resources) does it take, what is the cost and dif culty of replacement, and what is the likelihood of it being used in the near future? 7. I spent lots of money on this Keeping an item that you dont use, need or love, for this reason, is like throwing good money after bad. Give it away and make someone happy. 8. It was my parents stuff It has already served THEIR life and ITS purpose. You are not responsible for its future use. 9. I dont want to waste it Research ways to donate, sell, re-gift, recycle or re-use it. 10. Its a memento of a good time in my past Capture it in a smaller form, like a photo or a story about the item or a pillow from an article of clothing. Use your imagination. Make room for your future. Spend some time removing the clutter from your house, and you will reap the rewards of a more attractive and pleasing environment that makes it easier. Happy Spring!Spring cleaning is time to rid clutter

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 9, 2013 Page 3BBy JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 4 Maybe Rep. Irv Slosberg summed it up best when he spoke Friday from the Houses back rows. Sorry that we had a little meltdown for a couple of days, but 58 out of 60 days is pretty good, the Boca Raton Democrat said. The 2013 legislative session hit a rough patch during the final week when House Democrats protested the lack of a plan for expanding health coverage for low-income Floridians. An uninitiated viewer from Palatka or Wewahitchka might have been baf ed to tune in and see House members sitting around listening to an automated voice named Mary, of course read bills as part of a procedural move by Democrats to slow down the session. But put aside the protest and the failure to pass a health expansion. And Marys droning voice, for that matter. By the time the House and Senate adjourned Friday night, Republican legislative leaders and Gov. Rick Scott could tout a successful session. Most of their priorities passed, and Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford orchestrated the 60 days with a certain professionalism that even the Democrats seemed to appreciate. Scott, for example, focused on a limited agenda that had political curb appeal for lawmakers. That agenda included higher pay for teachers and tax relief for manufacturers ideas that probably will play well when lawmakers chat up the Rotary Clubs back home. This Legislature cut taxes so well have more jobs in this state, Scott said. We dramatically increased the funding for education, and we are giving our classroom teachers a pay raise... These are great victories for Floridas families. But part of the sessions smoothness also stemmed from an improving economy that gave lawmakers more money to play with. Unlike the past several years, lawmakers didnt have to make unpopular budget decisions about issues such as cutting funding for universities or trimming payments to hospitals and nursing homes. The bottom line is, theres nothing like having some money, Senate Rules Chairman John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, said at one point during the session. KUMBAYA RETURNS TO THE CAPITOL At age 65, Gaetz is old enough to be the 33-yearold Weatherfords father and then some. But at least publicly, the pair respected each other and cooperated on priority issues, offering a change in tone from the past two years when the Senate, in particular, often appeared chaotic. The era of acrimony between the House and the Senate is over, Gaetz, R-Niceville, said to a crowd gathered on the fourth oor of the Capitol to celebrate sine die, the traditional end of the session. The House and Senate will always have spats, and some bills and budget proposals will always get killed as collateral damage. But Gaetz, Weatherford and their lieutenants seemed to get past those spats this year on most of the big issues. For instance, the $74.5 billion budget for the scal year that starts July 1 was nished Monday, giving lawmakers four days to peruse it before they voted. Along with providing money for teacher raises, the spending plan also will boost pay for state employees, pump more money into the university system and funnel money to projects and programs across the state. The Senate unanimously approved the budget, while the House passed it by a 106-11 vote. Similarly, Gaetz and Weatherford made clear from the beginning of the legislative session that they wanted to reform the states ethics laws and change the campaign- nance system. The House and Senate whipped together compromises on the issues, and Scott signed the bills Wednesday. Among the sessions other notable bills, lawmakers Friday approved a plan that will seek to prevent a repeat of the voting delays and other problems that plagued the 2012 elections in Florida. Almost all Senate Democrats voted against the plan because of concerns that it did not go far enough, but other Democrats said the bill (HB 7013) was a move in the right direction. It takes men and women of maturity to understand when youve done something in error to come back and correct it, said Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg. And we saw what happened in the November elections, and as a body we have come back this year to correct it... I look forward to us coming back next session and xing it just a little bit more. YOU CANT ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT Even when legislative leaders put their considerable muscle behind bills, that doesnt mean those issues will pass. That was evident this week when the Senate, in a pair of close votes, killed a Weatherford plan to revamp the state retirement system and a controversial education measure commonly known as the parent trigger bill. Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, particularly made a priority of a bill that would close the traditional pension system to new employees and require them to enroll in 401(k)-style defined contribution plans. While the speaker contended that the change is needed to maintain the long-term financial health of the retirement system, Democrats and some Senate Republicans combined to kill it (HB 7011). Opponents said the traditional pension system is important for government employees, including law enforcement of cers and re ghters, who often work for relatively low pay. They also discounted comparisons with privatesector workers, many of whom only have 401(k)type options. I just do not understand why we want to experiment around, and we want to take these people who are protecting us every single day and put them in a system, just because it works in private business, said Sen. Jack Latvala, a Clearwater Republican who gave an impassioned speech. But while people in the Capitol will remember the death of the pension bill and hundreds of other measures, the session will be known for lawmakers failure to approve a plan to expand health coverage for lowincome people. House and Senate Republicans decided early in the session that they did not want to carry out an expansion of the Medicaid program under the federal Affordable Care Act. That expansion was expected to lead to the federal government funneling an estimated $51 billion to Florida over the next decade to provide Medicaid coverage to roughly 1 million people. The House and Senate put together alternatives to a Medicaid expansion, including a Senate plan that would tap into the same pot of federal money to offer private health insurance to low-income people. But House Republicans refused to count on the federal money and pushed a smaller-scale proposal to offer state subsidies to targeted groups of uninsured Floridians. Supporters of the Senate approach, ranging fr om the hospital industry to organized labor, lobbied heavily but never could get traction with House Republicans. The frustration turned into protest this week when House Democrats reached into the rules book and used a procedural move to slow down the House proceedings for two days. But in the end, the session adjourned without the House and Senate coming close to agreement. STORY OF THE WEEK: The 2013 legislative session ended Friday night, after the House and Senate passed a $74.5 billion state budget for the scal year starting July 1. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: The chasm between the competing visions is too wide to overcome. Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, putting to rest hopes of reaching a deal on expanding health coverage for low-income people.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Say goodnight, MaryTALLAHASSEE The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing National Drinking Water Week 2013 with information to help you answer this years slogan, What do you know about H2O?

Recognizing that young people seek to nd their place in the wider world through many ways and means, the community hopes the following Summer OPPS hit the intended mark with many Wakulla youth. Positive youth development refers to activities and programs that nurture young people and help them build on their strengths. Positive youth development is not about xing kids problems. Rather, it helps young people nd positive things to say yes to. Positive youth development happens anytime an individual or a program teaches young people skills, connects adults and young people in a meaningful way, involves young people in the life of the community, and gives them a sense of belonging and accomplishment. In Wakulla there are many places that young people can nd this kind of nurturing. Wakulla has its own unique network of people, groups, churches, clubs, teachers, businesses, and agencies that help young people grow into competent adults. The nurturers might be piano teachers, soccer coaches, neighbors, Big Brother and Sisters, YMCA, church youth group leaders or grandparents this secion of the paper is intended to help you decide how to spend a bit of your time this summer.All Summer LongJune 3 June 7 CHEYENNE COUNTRY Camp Cheyenne CountryHORSEBACK RIDING summer camp for children ages 7-14.

For many families, that meant leaving vacations on the cutting room oor. While the economy has rebounded, uncertainty surrounding that comeback has prevailed for many families, who remain hesitant to book a traditional vacation for fear of spending money they might be better off saving. The sacri ce of traditional vacations has led many families to embrace the staycation, wherein families still take time off to be with one another but do so largely at home rather than heading off to an exotic locale or resort. A staycation is a great way for families to rediscover their own communities and spend quality time together without the hustle and bustle of airports or interstates. Families who still nd themselves hesitant to commit to a more traditional vacation can heed the following tips to ensure their staycation is a success. Go out to dinner. Part of the fun of a family vacation is getting to enjoy some nights out on the town. But even if youre not straying far from home this year, you can still enjoy the cuisine your community has to offer. Dine out a few nights during your time off, making sure to enjoy a few different restaurants instead of relying on one your family frequents throughout the year. Dining out on a weeknight will create the feel of a more traditional vacation, and you might just nd a new restaurant you and your family love and can revisit in the years to come. Absorb the local culture. The daily grind has a way of making life hectic, and chances are you and your family dont get to enjoy your own communitys culture throughout the year. Take advantage of the time afforded you by your staycation to soak up all the culture and recreational activities your community has to offer. Visit nearby museums, take in a performance at your local theater or explore a nearby park, be it for a day of hiking or a more laid back picnic in the sun. This can help everyone reacquaint themselves with the reasons you chose to settle down in your community. Go camping. Just because youre having a staycation doesnt mean you have to stay home. Spend a few nights away from home by taking the family on a camping trip. The fee to stay at a nearby campsite is negligible when compared to the cost of hotel rooms for an entire family, and you wont spend nearly as much on food because youll need to bring your own to the campsite. Camp during the week instead of on the weekends, and you might have more of the campground to yourself. Head for the beach. In its National Coastal Population Report examining population trends from 1970 to 2020, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that 39 percent of the United States population lived in counties directly on the shoreline. Make time to visit the beach on your staycation, and you might be able to recreate the feeling of a more traditional getaway. Staycations have become a staple for families looking to avoid expensive resort vacations. But staying close to home can still be just as fun as traveling abroad. Special to The NewsCamping is a popular outdoor activity that attracts many enthusiasts year after year. Whether campers plan to spend one night or several in the great outdoors, there are certain tips to follow to ensure your trip is as fun and safe as possible. GEAR In order to be comfortable, stock up on camping gear. Tents, sleeping bags and other gear need not be the most expensive. Quality, moderately priced gear works well, too. With care and maintenance, camping gear can last for several years. A tent will be your rst line of defense against the outdoors. Although plenty of people prefer to sleep out under the stars, a tent is a place to avoid inclement weather and insects and have a little privacy. Your tent need not be too big, unless you plan to share it with many of your fellow campers. Since you will be spending the majority of your time outdoors, dont feel pressured to buy the tent equivalent of a three-room suite. A good tent should be sturdy, weather-resistant and large enough to t the people who will be sleeping in it during your trip. Invest in a pad to place on the oor of the tent to shield you from the hard ground. The pad will make sleeping more comfortable. If you will be sleeping during warm-weather months, you dont have to worry about an expensive sleeping bag. An averageweight one will be just ne. Dont forget to pack a pillow. WHERE TO CAMP Campsites may be public or private. Public campgrounds are generally funded by tax dollars and maintained by parks departments or government of ces. They may be free to enter or charge a nominal fee for use. Because of the low cost involved, they may be quite popular and crowded during peak camping season. Private campsites are run by private companies or individuals and may also feature RV hookups. In many instances, private campsites sell memberships to interested parties, which gives access to certain private areas. They may have more amenities than public campsites. Private sites also may employ security personnel and maintenance crews to ensure the areas are clean and safe and to enforce campground rules. An online search of both public and private campsites nearby can help you determine which option best suits you. Consider national parks, national forests and even the Army Corps of Engineers, which manages many recreational areas. AVOID CRITTERS Animals and insects are part of the camping experience. While they are unavoidable, there are some measures you can take to reduce the propensity for bothersome bug bites or clever critters raiding the cooler. Keeping a clean campsite is perhaps the most effective animal and insect deterrent. Ants and animals are attracted to food bits scattered around the site, so be sure to gather trash and dispose of it properly each day. Try not to store food on the ground. Whenever possible, keep food locked away in an airtight cooler or other container. Dry foods can be stored under lock and key in the car. To avoid insects, steer clear of perfumed products. Keep lights dim at night, as bright lights attract mosquitoes and other biting bugs. Use appropriate insect repellents to help further repel bugs.CLOSER ISNT ALWAYS BETTERMany new campers make the mistake of choosing campsites that are in close proximity to bathrooms and clubhouses and other reminders of civilization. But these areas tend to feature heavy foot and car traf c and can make for a noisy experience. PLAN FOR THE WETNESS Even if it doesnt rain, dew is an inevitable part of camping outdoors. Warm weather with high humidity can make dew even more plentiful. Use a shower curtain or another plastic impenetrable liner beneath your tent to reduce wetness and chilliness while you sleep. Be sure to bring in clothes and remove items from your clotheslines before you retire for the night if you dont want them damp the next morning. Use tarps to cover anything that should not get wet. Be sure to pack plenty of dry socks and changes of clothes and store them in zipper-top bags in the event clothing does get wet. CARRY IN AND CARRY OUT Part of the magic of camping is being able to enjoy nature and experience the great outdoors. It is crucial to protect natural landscapes as much as possible and to exercise caution around plant life. In addition, be mindful of animal habitats. What you bring to the campsite, including trash, should be removed when you are done. Do not leave a mess behind. Camping can be an enjoyable and inexpensive vacation option. Learning the ropes and heeding some advice can make camping an enjoyable getaway year after year. Your family can make the most of a staycation Get ready for camping season with these tipsA staycation can still include some family fun at the beach.
