See Page 14A By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net If you happen to wander back behind the Wakulla County Health Department to a road called Oak Street and into a little building run by an organization called CHAT, then you may just “ nd your heart warmed, a smile formed and your life subtly changed. CHAT stands for Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment and was incorporated as a nonpro“ t organization in 2001 after the Wakulla Humane Society disbanded. Their mission includes improving the health, safety and wellbeing of domesticated animals through education and charity. As a private, nonpro“ t organization, CHAT, although they do not receive anything from the county other than the building they are in, does work in close partnership with the countys animal shelter. After animals have been at the shelter for “ ve days, leaving time for their owners to reclaim them, animal control works closely with CHAT to get the adoptable animals to them so they can be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and receive any needed treatments.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netSpokesmen for the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission con“ rmed that a dead manatee was taken from the Wakulla River on Saturday, June 1. FWC spokesman Stan Kirkland said this week that the agency received a call on Saturday at about 9 a.m. from a person who lives on the river that there was a dead manatee. An of“ cer responded and recovered the body and took it to upper bridge for pick up. The animal was a juvenile with no obvious sign of injury, Kirkland said. Kevin Baxter, spokesperson at the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, where the animal was taken for necropsy, said the manatee brought in Saturday, and on which a necropsy was performed on Monday, was a four-foot long female calf. The cause of death is undetermined because it was too decomposed,Ž Baxter said. There had been rumors circulating in the community that the manatee had been hit by a boat and killed. Asked about that, Baxter said there appeared to be no physical evidence of that, but reiterated that the body was very decomposed.PHOTOS BY AMANDA MAYOR Group works to “ nd homes to adopt unwanted cats and dogsA puppy and cat at the CHAT Adoption Center in Crawforville. By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net The citizens of Wakulla County will have to wait another two weeks to “ nd out whether or not the YMCA will be the entity that will run the community center as, at their meeting on Monday, June 3, county commissioners voted 5-0 to table a vote that would either pass or deny an agreement between the county and the YMCA. On May 17, the Community Center Advisory Council had unanimously voted to approve the contract with the YMCA after making a couple of minor changes to the agreement. Despite that, Commissioner Howard Kessler made a motion to table the vote in order to consider proposals at the next board meeting with the possibility of exploring additional requests or alternatives. One alternative named by both Kessler and Commissioner Ralph Thomas was the 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC), which currently holds a program at Wakulla Christian School and serves youth enrolled in Pre-K through eighth grade. Chairman Randy Merritt was quick to point out the fact that this program only goes through grade eight, but Thomas emphasized the fact that it does not have to be the only program held at the community center. This is a successful program that is being run now,Ž said Thomas. They currently have 150 kids in their program and 100 more on a waiting list that they have to turn away.Ž The program was formed due to an educational enrichment grant that was given by the Department of Education to Tallahassee Community College. Thomas explained that more of the grant funds could be utilized if they had the capacity to house more kids. Im not proposing that the 21st CCLC come in and take over the community center,Ž said Thomas. Im not proposing that they come in and replace where we were heading with the YMCA. Im proposing that they just be one asset of a viable community center.Ž I would certainly prefer to move forward with the YMCA,Ž Chairman Randy Merritt said. Weve been working on this a long time.Ž This is a major decision for our county, I think we need to work hard to get all the facts together,Ž said Kessler. In no way am I suggesting that we ditch the Y.Ž Continued on Page 3AAMANDA MAYOR The injured shepherd Zeke at the vets of“ ce.Dog found shotOn the morning of Thursday, May 30, Wakulla County Animal Control Of“ cer Mark Carter found an emaciated German Shepherd puppy amongst the tall grass on the side of the road.

According to policy, if an animal is not reclaimed after “ ve days, it becomes the countys property. So, as of June 4, Zeke belongs to Wakulla. Currently, he is being cared for by the veterinary team at the hospital and is scheduled to have surgery to amputate one of his legs because the bones were completely shattered. Other than his gunshot wound, Zeke had a preexisting skin condition and a parasite problem. According to Dr. Reed Guhrt, Zeke may have to have more than one surgery. Guhrt also said that they had received dozens of calls wanting to donate to Zekes cause and that they had already received hundreds of dollars. According to Animal Control Officer Ivanhoe Carroll, Zeke already has several potential adopters Hes got a strong will to survive, hes had to,Ž said Carroll who expects theyll have no problem placing him in a good home. Luckily Zeke has a story, says WCAC of“ cers. However, many others who come through the shelter are not as lucky but just as deserving. WCAC encourages the public that when looking for a new pet to bring home, adopt, dont shop.Ž Dog found shot 2012 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report City of SopchoppyWere pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from seven wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Leonard Tartt with the City of Sopchoppy at (850) 962-4611. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 105 Municipal Avenue, Sopchoppy, Florida. In 2011 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are ten potential sources of contamination identi“ed for this system with low to moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.”.us/ swapp or they can be obtained from Leonard Tartt, Public Works Director at the City of Sopchoppy. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Sopchoppy is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by ”ushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also, come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 -800-4264791. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. The City of Sopchoppy routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2012. Data obtained before January 1, 2012, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.In the table below, you may “nd unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following de“nitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not re”ect the bene“ts of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. NDŽ means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (Ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage I DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at the City of Sopchoppy would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water.

From Page 1ADr. Faith Hughes with VCA Animal Hospital dedicates her time, talents, ex=pertise and days off to take care of any issues with the animals taken in by CHAT. Vernon comes in to the shelter early and spends two hours cleaning, feeding and getting the pups and felines ready for visitors, working under the license of Hughes as the shelters veterinary technician. CHAT Secretary Petra Shuff got involved six years ago when she read an article about the need for CHAT buddies … people who come in and work with an animal of their choice that needs help with basic command or leash training. I did that with about two or three dogs before I really got sucked in,Ž says Shuff, who found herself on the board of directors within a year and volunteering whenever she can. She says she goes twice a month to help represent CHAT at the Petco in Talllahassee in order to bring awareness to Leon County and in hopes of “ nding homes for some of the shelters animals. Another aspect of CHATs outreach is a publication called the Kind News. Wakulla County third and “ fth graders are supplied with the magazine, which teaches them valuable information on the responsible treatment and care of animals. CHAT spends time each year during the elementary schools Project Learning Tree as well. There they will spend the whole day at a school, take a couple of dogs and talk with the kids, hoping to plant the seeds of animal appreciation that may save the lives of future animals. Shuff says the organization is currently working on short videos for students and teachers that will be widely accessible on YouTube. Their hope is to be able to offer a free and easy way to educate youth and protect the interests of the animals that each child will come in contact with throughout their lifetime. In terms of trends, it seems as if the shelter has seen a heavy number of animal drop-offs, which Shuff guesses, is due in large part to the economy. Food and shots and vet visits and follow-ups do get expensive,Ž she says, adding that sometimes an animal will get adopted, but in a few cases, they end up right back at the shelter in need of a good home. Roughly $8,000 in donations is raised each year through fundraising. Twice a year they hold a Pamper your Pooch day at the park where services such as baths, nail clipping, glamour photos, anal gland extractions micro-chipping and more are offered. CHAT also holds an annual rose sale. For the past 17 years CHAT Founder and Grant Director Heide Clifton diligently sows and maintains about 400 rose plants until they are ready to be sold during her annual sale. That $8,000 alone goes towards food only for the animals,Ž Shuff says. If you would like to help CHAT, they are always looking for those that are willing to foster an animal, volunteers, donations and people who are willing to just come to the shelter and spend time with the animals. Anyone who wishes to foster an animal choose to participate in offsite events and provide shelter and everyday care, while the organization itself provides the necessary medicines and food. CHAT has my heart,Ž Shuff said. I feel like we do the right thing.Ž www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 6, 2013 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper.

From Page 1A Kessler said he had spoken with some Department of Education of“ cials and had concerns as to whether or not the 21st CCLC could even be housed in a county building. The Pre-K through eighth grade issue also concerned Kessler. The county became interested in providing a community center because we heard from our various sheriffs that we need to provide a safe place for our teens,Ž he said. I just think its worth stepping back for another couple of weeks and looking at all of it.Ž Commissioner Richard Harden was also concerned about the age limitation. Everything that Ive heard about the 21st CCLC program is positive,Ž said Harden. It does great academic things for those who are not able to afford it on their own and I hope that we can absolutely incorporate it into the Ys program, but theres a lot of teenagers and adults that want this YMCA and who have been promised it for over a year.Ž Two citizens and business owners were present to voice their concerns about prices of memberships and that some underprivileged children would not be able to participate in YMCA activities due to costs. They pointed out that guarantee of scholarship for kids wanting to participate was not in the contract. YMCA President and CEO Ray Purvis attempted to resolve their qualms. We carry financial assistance for students and folks of all levels of the socioeconomic spectrum,Ž said Purvis. To the point of the 21st Century grant, YMCAs operate those grant programs all across the state. We are the largest provider of after school services of any organization in the United States … we know how to do after school programs.Ž Purvis went on to explain that the YMCA receives funding from federal, state and local governments in order to help provide for students. They do not, said Purvis, discriminate against students who come from lower income families, those that qualify for free or reduced lunch or any other category. It ultimately comes down to whether or not you all want to run the community center or if you want to provide it to an outside group.Ž Purvis stated. Three different times you have voted to provide it to the YMCA. If we have to table it again and go into more conversation we are going to step up and talk about it, but at the end of the day either the county or the YMCA runs the community center.Ž I want to move forward with the YMCA,Ž reiterated Merritt. Ive been opposed to the Y up to this point,Ž said Commissioner Jerry Moore, who said he didnt want any county money put into the project. But if we can incorporate the 21st CCLC program in with the YMCA, then I will change my position.Ž Harden brought up the fact that the county has already made an agreement with the state as to how the county will spend money on the community center and that the clock is ticking. If we do something with this money other than what we said we were going to do then well owe them $400,000,Ž Harden explained. If we have to run our own community center its going to cost us more … were going to have to go out and find more money to fund the community center. Im not against the YMCA, I think they can coexist with local businesses.Ž The matter was set to come back in two weeks.Community center on hold again CHAT cares for pets 000EFQ0

By AMANDA MAYORI would consider myself an animal lover. Growing up, my family had all kinds of animals … rabbits, hamster after hamster, dogs, tortoises, iguanas … we called ourselves the Mayor family zoo, and we were, in more ways than one. At this time in my life, I could de“ nitely do without anything creepy crawly or anything reptilian, but if I lived in a real house with a real backyard instead of a second story condominium with only a small front porch, I would have two, three … at least eight dogs and maybe a cat. So, as you might imagine, writing this weeks story on CHAT was both exhilarating and heartbreaking as, at the end of my time at the shelter, I had to force myself not to bring home a new friend … or eight. It was all I could do, from the moment I stepped foot inside the CHAT building, not to rush over to the kittens in the lobby or even to take home every single sweet dog that I spent time with during my visit. The good news is that CHAT, with the help of their board, volunteers and Shelter Director Tammy Vernon, had already adopted out most of the critters that I met. The bad news is that their job will never be “ nished. There will always be an animal that needs a good home. One of the most encouraging and impressive things I noticed about the shelter was not only how clean it was, but also the space of the kennels for the dogs. Thankfully, it allows them to freely go inside or outside and they have room to move around. Normally, when I think of a shelter I envision three or four or “ ve critters compounded into a small space together, but that was de“ nitely not the case. Admittedly, I have never been to a shelter before, but I know that the impression I got from this facility speaks volumes about the great care that these animals receive by the CHAT organization, their volunteers and the community. The mere fact that there were not more unspoken-for animals there speaks to just how hard CHAT is consistently working to care for the four legged. I follow the CHAT Facebook page regularly … actually, stalkŽ is probably a more accurate term. Just before I sat down to write this, I read on their page that school is out, which means adoptions are going to slow way down.Ž I would be remiss if I were not to encourage each of you to at least go visit the CHAT shelter. You dont have to adopt, just go spend some time with a deserving pup or feline. In case you are wondering, I do have a dog of my own. Her name is Gracie, she was my college graduation present and I have had her since she was eight weeks old. Now, at just over a year, she is the smartest, ” uf“ est, cuddliest, cutest companion a girl could ask for. Quite often I have to remind myself that she is in fact a dog and not a human. She puts herself to bed (mine), insists on an ice cube in her water bowl, imitates human posture when sitting in the car, and is cat-like in her dedication to not getting wet … which is in no way humanlike, its just funny. We take her to the beach and shes the happiest thing under the sun, that is, until the tide comes in or the ball gets too close to the shoreline. She plays chickenŽ with the waves. Its comical. Shes fun. In other news, I wanted to offer my congratulations to the class of 2013. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching from the sidelines during your picnic, awards ceremony and War Eagle Walk. You all exude kindness, strength and spirit and, although I do not know any of you personally, I was in your exact shoes “ ve years ago and I know the anxious excitement that comes with the prospect of tackling the world head on, for the “ rst time, on your own. How exciting for each of you. Best of luck as you start this next chapter!Amanda Mayor is the reporter at The Wakulla News.

Where has he been these many years when the community center was being discussed and various options were offered and considered by the community? Now, after a long courtship during which the YMCA has invested thousands of hours, Commissioner Thomas proposes that we leave the YMCA standing at the altar. Why? He says this community charity whose policy is to never turn anyone away will compete with the private sector that offers less and turns away everyone who cannot pay. Few, if any, of Commissioner Thomas ideas are new. Of course, we want a wide variety of community organizations to have access to Community Center facilities and to be able to offer programs there. Of course, we want to offer afterschool programs at the community center. Is Commissioner Thomas unaware that the YMCA offered grant-funded after school programs for Wakullas children at Camp Indian Springs long before Wakulla Springs Baptist Church started offering grant-funded after school programs? Why does Commissioner Thomas ignore the information that was collected from more than 1,000 citizens? In 2010, nearly 700 families told us their top priorities for the Community Center were swimming pool (84 percent), playground (80 percent), gymnasium (68 percent), walking/exercise trail (68 percent), and outdoor basketball courts (59 percent). In 2011, 370 middle and high school students told us their top “ ve choices for outdoor activities were swimming pool, outdoor basketball courts, open field area, walking/biking/skating trail, and playground. Their top “ ve choices for indoor activities were bowling, weightlifting, teen dances, roller skating, and indoor basketball courts. This input guided the creation of a master plan for the 22-acre site that includes most of the above facilities. Further, the YMCA is the community organization best able to provide many of these offerings … and to do so for all residents, not just the wealthiest among us. Two major bene“ ts of a partnership with the YMCA have received little attention. First, given that a community swimming pool is most desired, the YMCA can help to achieve this objective. They have the fundraising ability … and the expertise to build and operate … an aquatic center for Wakulla County. Second, working parents who commute to Tallahassee will have access to the YMCA facilities in Tallahassee for no additional fee. They also may take their children to that swimming pool. The county certainly should explore the possibility of offering after school activities at the Community Center through the 21st Century Learning Center grant that Commissioner Thomas advocates (if Wakulla Springs Baptist Church wants to turn over this program and the administrative burden is not prohibitive for the county). However, after school programs are just one of the offerings that the community wants at the community center … and these would be complementary, not incompatible, with YMCA programs. We can have both (until the 21st Century grant ends). The YMCA contract that Commissioner Thomas wants to back out of includes an initial feasibility assessment. Given our small population and the many families that will need charitable subsidies, the feasibility study may convince the YMCA that it cannot operate their charity in our county. Then we will be left only with options such as Commissioner Thomas proposes. But let us not choose less prematurely. By the time readers see this letter, the county commission will have decided whether or not to move forward with the YMCA. Are we closer to realizing our dreams for the Community Center Complex … or have we taken a major step backward? Sincerely, Lynn Artz Sopchoppy Editor, The News: As a lifelong citizen of Sopchoppy, I have seen a a lot of changes within the city government of Sopchoppy. Our city made history in 2001 when my youngest daughter, Colleen SkipperMitchell, was elected city councilwoman. She has served the City of Sopchoppy for 13 years. She has given tirelessly not only to the citizens but to city employees. Many of you remember my mother, the late Charlotte Rosier, a woman who gave all she had to others and asked for nothing in return. Colleen is a young woman who has and is following the footsteps of her late grandmother. She had the honor to be elected by the council in 2010 to serve as the “ rst female mayor on the city council. Mayor Skipper-Mitchell currently serves on two committees: Florida League of Mayors and Women elected to municipal government. Colleen has worked for Wakulla County for the past 32 years consisting of the school system, property appraisers of“ ce, and currently the Board of County Commissioners. She is a member of Skipper Temple Church in Sopchoppy, where she serves as Deaconess. Lets keep integrity and a voice for all citizens of Sopchoppy and re-elect Mayor Colleen Skipper-Mitchell on June 11. Respectfully, Ethel M. Skipper Sopchoppy Editor, The News: Get ready for a good time! The Annual Sopchoppy Fourth of July Celebration is just around the corner!

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 6, 2013 – Page 5ABy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 31 … As summertime approaches in Florida, the temperature isnt the only thing heating up. Gov. Rick Scotts pen for signing bills is also warming as he signs measures at a torrid pace, at one point putting his name on 38 laws in a single day. A court case about the Legislatures attempt to redraw congressional maps has been enflamed by a battle over the right to certain documents. And the Republican Party of Florida has kept up the heat on the Florida Democratic Party for not including former Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich on the speakers list for an annual fundraising gala, hoping a clash between activists and FDP leaders will boil over. The lazy days of summer will likely still prove as languid as ever, as more and more attention turns to barbecues and “ reworks. But for now, theres still just enough heat to keep things interesting.SIGNS OF SUMMERFrom text messages to property insurance, Scotts busy bill-signing schedule altered dozens of laws, even with the governor having just four working days to ink legislation. On Tuesday, he signed a pair of bills, one that could lead to $30 tickets for motorists who are texting while driving. The measure (SB 52), which comes after years of fighting on the issue, would only allow citations to be given as secondaryŽ offenses when drivers are pulled over for other reasons. It also still allows people to text while stopped. But advocates treated even the limited ban as a victory. Scott also approved a bill (HB 7065) that brought the states plan for Everglades restoration into line with an agreement with the federal government and continues a ” ow of money from an agricultural tax used to repair and maintain the River of Grass. This is a long term commitment,Ž Scott said after signing the bill at Florida Atlantic Universitys Pine Jog Environmental Education Center in West Palm Beach. We have a long term plan and this is going to do the right thing for the Everglades.Ž But Thursday brought a flood of new laws, as Scott attached his signature to more than three dozen pieces of legislation, including a proposal to crack down on cyberbullyingŽ (HB 609), a bill allowing the Department of Environmental Protection to set water quality standards in Florida (SB 1808), and legislation (HB 701) making it illegal to use state-issued EBT cards at strip clubs, liquor stores and gambling establishments. Scott also gave his approval to a pair of bills (HB 1325 and HB 1327) creating a legal process for human-trafficking victims to get their criminal records expunged -typically for prostitution charges. The new laws, which take effect Jan. 1, would only apply to crimes committed while the victims were being forced, threatened or coerced. They need to have their criminal records expunged and removed so they can move on and have gainful employment,Ž said Robin Hassler Thompson, senior policy analyst at Florida State Universitys Center for the Advancement of Human Rights.CITIZENS STILL FACES SOME STORM CLOUDSBy the time Scott unleashed his bill-a-palooza on Thursday, he had already signed off on changes at Citizens Property Insurance Corp., which is drawing scrutiny for a deal it reached with a politically-connected property insurance company. The bill signed Wednesday (SB 1770) includes a series of steps aimed at reducing the number of homeowners getting coverage from Citizens, such as setting up what is described as a clearinghouseŽ where private insurers could intercept policies that otherwise would wind up with Citizens. The bill would also require Scott and the Cabinet to appoint an inspector general for the beleaguered, statebacked insurer. This legislation will bring much needed reforms to better protect the taxpayers who support Citizens Property Insurance, Scott said in a prepared statement. Meanwhile, Citizens tried to manage the fallout of a controversial deal approved last week that could funnel up to $52 million to St. Petersburgbased Heritage Property and Casualty Insurance, which would take out as many as 60,000 from Citizens. DepopulationŽ has become the buzzword when it comes to how to “ x Citizens, but this form of depopulation has raised concerns, including from House Speaker Will Weatherford. Even Scott said Citizens should give at least seven days notice of such issues. Citizens President and Chief Executive Of“ cer Barry Gilway agreed with Scott that the statebacked insurer needs to do a better job of communicating about major initiatives, though he said staff members in the past have struggled with how early to present information about potential deals. At the same time, of“ cials said this week that they have confidence in the “ scal strength of Citizens and the statebacked Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, essentially a pool that provides insurance for insurance companies.FAST-TRACK LAWMAKERS?Its not quite Fast and Furious 6, but the lead feet of several legislators became an issue in the case of a fired Florida Highway Patrol trooper who challenged the decision to dismiss him. A state hearing of“ cer rejected arguments by the “ red troopers attorney that he should be allowed to force testimony from Sen. Jeff Clemens, DLake Worth; Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness; Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart; and Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine. Also, the extrooper sought testimony from Rep. James Grant, R-Tampa; Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater; Rep. Seth McKeel, R-Lakeland; Rep. Keith Perry, R-Gainesville; and Rep. Alan Williams, D-Tallahassee But the hearing nonetheless shined a spotlight on a handful of current and former troopers who say they were told to practice discretionŽ when making traf“ c stops of lawmakers who control the agencys budget. Not surprisingly, an attorney for the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles contended such a quid-proquo between law enforcement and lawmakers doesn‘t exist. Ex-trooper Charles Swindle said he was shown the door for writing a $10 ticket to Rep. Charles McBurney, RJacksonville, instead of a more-costly speeding ticket. But the state says he was “ red because he ticketed McBurney and Rep. Mike Clelland, DLake Mary, for not having proof of insurance and, in Clellands case, proof of registration. Both lawmakers said they had the documents when they were stopped. This is about falsi“ cation, not about whether the drivers were legislators or not,Ž said Sandra Coulter, who represented the highway safety department. But Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, who appeared at the hearing but wasnt allowed to speak, told reporters its a common practiceŽ that legislators have been given leniency on state highways, the same as law enforcement officers regularly waive rules for other law enforcement of“ cers as a professional courtesy...I wouldnt think about giving a trooper a ticket as I would give my wife one,Ž Campbell said. STORY OF THE WEEK: Scott signed a bill making changes to Citizens Property Insurance Corp., as the company tried to explain a deal that could pay a company up to $52 million to take 60,000 policies off the hands of the state-backed insurer. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: The “ rst thing that Tallahassee politicians probably need to re” ect upon is that nobody knows who they are, nobody knows why they think they are so important. Only in Tallahassee, inside the echo chamber here where people talk to each other and think theyre hearing the voice of God, are politicians that important.Ž Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, in an interview with The Florida Channels Florida Face to FaceŽ program.WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Scott signs bills as summer doldrums nearBy DAVID WHITE Rarely do wine enthusiasts have a summertime page-turner. There was Sideways,Ž of course, the Pinot-drenched novel by Rex Pickett that became a blockbuster movie, but that hit bookstores nearly 10 years ago. Over the past decade, many writers have tried to replicate the success of SidewaysŽ with wine-inspired “ ction. But the strongest narratives have been non“ ction … books like Benjamin Wallaces The Billionaires Vinegar,Ž which exposes the seedy underbelly of wine auctions, and Evan Dawsons Summer in a Glass,Ž which chronicles the history of the Finger Lakes wine region. Fortunately, oenophiles once again have a work of “ ction thats perfect for the beach: James Conaways Nose,Ž released this spring by Thomas Dunne Books. If Conaways name sounds familiar, thats because hes been writing for more than 40 years. An essayist for National Geographic Traveler, Conaway is best known in wine circles for Napa: The Story of an American Eden,Ž released in 1990, and his 2002 follow-up, The Far Side of Eden.Ž Both works … juicy, social histories of Americas top winegrowing locale … garnered much acclaim. At the center of Conways foray into “ ction is Clyde Craven-Jones, a transplanted Briton who has become the worlds most powerful wine critic. From his adopted home in northern California, Craven-Jones … known as CJŽ … can move markets with the scores he publishes in his eponymous newsletter. So producers everywhere try to imitate the Craven-Jones styleŽ by producing big, boozy wines. (Without question, this character is loosely based on Robert M. Parker Jr.) Early in the novel, CJ sits for a routine tasting of nine different bottles of local Cabernet Sauvignon. Included in the blind tasting is a shiner … an unlabeled bottle that mysteriously ended up on CJs doorstep. That shiner isnt just the best in the lineup … its the best California wine CJ has ever tasted. So he gives it a perfect score, an award hes never bestowed upon a California wine. An investigation promptly begins, spearheaded by CJs wife, Claire. In Claires quest to identify the wine, readers meet a collection of mis“ ts, villains, and unlikely heroes. Helping Claire is Les Breeden, an unemployed journalist who decides to advertise himself as a private investigator after losing his job at the local newspaper. He spends virtually all his free time at the local dive bar, a wine geeks paradise called Glass Act. As the investigation unfolds, readers become well acquainted with two others: Jerome Hutt, a developer-turnedwinery-owner whose wines are as opulent as his lifestyle; and Cotton Harrell, an ecologist-turned-winemaker who is dedicated to biodynamic farming. Like the cheerleader and the band geek in a classic high school drama, these men serve as foils to one another. Hutt is the symbol of all thats wrong with Californias cultŽ wines and Harrell represents all thats pure about viniculture. The book hints at some serious issues, from the madness of wine ratings and the changing media landscape to the alcoholism and class divisions that quietly exist in every winemaking region. But at its heart, NoseŽ is a straightforward mystery novel. Predictable, to be sure, but with enough twists and turns its nearly impossible to put down. David White, a wine writer, is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com. His columns are housed at Palate Press: The Online Wine Magazine (PalatePress. com).

For more information, call 926-7322.I was tricked and I thought I was trick-proof OUT TO PASTORBy JAMES L. SNYDERI was minding my own business last week, which is the only business I am concerned about, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage posed a question. It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today,Ž she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have,Ž she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town.Ž Then she smiled and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word freeŽ to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive.Ž When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often.ŽShe smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item.Ž When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they takeŽ credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no,Ž she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out.Ž Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example, when a husband says the word run,Ž he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy. For which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise.Ž I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands “ lled with recently purchased items from the mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car.Ž While driving home I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often.Ž Then she began humming a song, Weve only just begun.Ž I think this is her theme song; in fact, I am afraid it is. About half way home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun.Ž A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be alsoŽ (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our “ nal destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at (866) 552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att. net. BUCKHORN NEWS By ETHEL SKIPPER On Sunday, June 9, will be a Childrens Day Celebration at Macedonia Church of Christ Written in Heaven. The church has been having this service for many years. Mother Charlotte Rosier would have all the children get a small milk carton and fill it with money. Later, they started using jars and she called it the jar rally … with the parents would see that their children fill their jars with money, mostly change. All the children would receive a household gift. It was joy and fun time and it was a way to support the church. Deaconess Alberta Hines continues the jar rally on Childrens Day after Mother Rosier passed on. She has been doing good work wince 1989. The church is encouraging children to bring their jar of money on Sunday. There will be gifts for the children. The church is located at 2263 Curtis Mills Road off U.S. Highway 319. Host pastor is Elder Alfred Nelson. The public is invited and everyone is welcome. Happy birthday greeting to Elder Greg Rosier, Ethel M. Skipper on June 23; Willie F. Skipper Jr. on June 25, Lachristan Skipper on June 6, and Elder Chris Burney June 22. At Skipper Temple Church on the third Sunday, June 16, is Fathers Day. At the 11 a.m. church service, the speaker will be Elder Greg Rosier. All fathers will be honored. If you are a father, we welcome you to fellowship with us on your special day.Children’s Day at Macedonia Special to The NewsSaturday, May 25, sparked the start of something new at St. Nora Primitive Baptist Church in Sopchoppy. The church held its “ rst Feed the Less Fortunate Dinner. The idea of feeding the less fortunate had been a dream of Sister Shirley Bauchums since she was a teenager. Approximately 30 years passed before Sister Bauchum felt her dream may become a reality. In August 2013, St. Nora installed a new pastor and one of his visions was to feed the less fortunate. The Bible says in Habakkuk 2:2-3 NIV: Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, It will not tarry. The members of St. Nora were ready to carry out this vision on Saturday as they greeted everyone with a heartfelt welcome and smile. Members were ready to serve as individuals entered the kitchen to receive a healthy hot plate of spaghetti, tossed salad, dinner roll, homemade dessert and ice cold tea or fruit punch. Elder David Gabriel Hogan, pastor of St. Nora said he teaches his congregation about being disciples and this ministry of breaking bread with the citizens of Sopchoppy is putting into action what is being learned. Pastor Hogan and Deacon Pate Reynolds delivered meals to the elderly as well as those without transportation. In addition to receiving a free meal, blood pressure screenings were offered to anyone interested. Pastor Hogans wife, (Marcelete BSN, RN) was excited at the number of individuals who wanted to have their blood pressure checked. Pastor Hogan and the St. Nora Church Family will continue this event once a month. The dates and times will be advertised in advance.St. Nora holds dinner for less fortunate

Stelter Timothy EuDon ‘Don’ Hatcher Covenant Hospice to hold Remembrance CelebrationSpecial to The NewsThe sound of silence was the most haunting for Thelma Zirkelbach on her “ rst night home after her husbands death. Id lost my husband, but I hadnt lost his voice, I told myself,Ž says Zirkelbach, who had spent so many nights the previous year at hospitals with her husband Ralph, who died not long after being diagnosed with leukemia. I picked up the phone and there was no dial tone. If the phone was dead, Ralphs voice would be gone forever.Ž Through her panicked daze, after having sunk to the ” oor with her spirits, she realized the phone jack was unplugged. She plugged it in and heard his voice one more time through the answering machine. It would be the “ rst thing she “ xed around the house without Ralphs help in decades. There were many moments like that in the year after his death. One of the things I had to learn was to “ nd help from many people, whereas for most of my adult life I had the help of many in one man,Ž says Zirkelbach, author of Stumbling Through the Dark,Ž (www. widowsphere.blogspot.com), a memoir about an interfaith couple facing one of lifes greatest spiritual challenges. Loving couples wince at the thought of losing their spouse and may even deny the idea despite a terminal medical diagnosis, but accepting the possibility helps in preparing for the years that follow, says Zirkelbach. She offers the following tips for doing that: € Consider the best way for all loved ones to say good-bye: Ralphs family comes from an evangelical Christian background, whereas Thelma is Jewish. Memorial services are designed for the surviving family and friends, and Zirkelbach held a service at her synagogue, which was “ lled with friends and colleagues. Make sure you do all you can to best say goodbye in your own way, which may include your religion or some other ritual,Ž she says. € Take stock of the necessary services youll need to replace: In many ways, Ralph was an old-fashioned Midwesterner who was a handyman around the house, moved heavy boxes, dispensed with unwanted critters like cockroaches, and acted as a one-man security system. He also provided smaller services in which a companion can help, such as fastening necklaces. Since Ralphs death nearly eight years ago, Thelma has hired her current handyman, air conditioning technician, accountant, “ nancial advisor and attorney. € No matter how independent you are, accept the fact that you may need emotional support: Soon after her husbands death, Zirkelbach joined a support group for widows and widowers and found solace in the company of others who had loved and lost. At one point, the group leader connected with members by saying they were blessed to have loved someone enough to mourn them. His statement turned grief on its head,Ž she says. € Nurture your spiritual life: I have become more Jewish during my widowhood,Ž she says. When I was a child, Judaism was part of the background of my life, like the Muzak you hear in elevators but dont really listen to.Ž Now, however, religion has moved to the forefront of her life, and she adds she is thankful for the strength her faith has given her. Yes, in spite of loss, I have still found joy in living,Ž she says. Thelma Zirkelbach received a bachelors degree in speech pathology from the University of Texas, a masters in speech pathology and audiology from the University of Houston and an education doctorate in curriculum and instruction with emphasis on reading disorders from the University of Houston. She has been in private practice in speech pathology, specializing in young children with speech, language and learning disabilities, for many years. 4 practical tips to prepare for the loss of a spouseDenial wont do, warns author-widow Please Recycle

Thats why in 2010 Tallahassee Community College partnered with the Carnegie Foundation and other community colleges around the country to develop Statway, an innovative new method to teach developmental math. Now preliminary results are in„and TCC is excited to announce significant increases in achievement. Our success rate is at 50%, meaning half of the students who sign up for Statway earn 3 credit hours of college-level math in two semesters„ thats signi“ cantly higher that the success rate of students who go through a traditional developmental mathematics path,Ž said Dr. Frank Brown, TCC dean of Science and Mathematics. Its great to see such promising results so early, and our goal is to help our students succeed at even high levels.Ž The nationwide network of colleges first launched the Statway program during the 2011-2012 academic year. The first cohort of Statway students began in the fall of 2011. This initial cohort of students spanned 19 community colleges and two state universities across “ ve states. In total, there were 50 faculty teaching 55 sections of Statway with 1,133 students enrolled. In Florida, other participating colleges include Valencia College and Miami Dade College. Statway emphasizes conceptual understanding and the ability to apply mathematical skills to the world around students, particularly when it comes to careers.

The varsity squad played the “ rst three quarters and had a 7-0 lead when the second team came in for the fourth quarter and scored 13 more points and gave up a touchdown. We played extremely hard,Ž Klees said. The thing Im proud of, the guys played hard. Its been one of our best springs,Ž he said. Theres still some things we still need to work on,Ž he said. Overall, I thought we looked pretty good.Ž The game gave coaches a chance to develop a depth chart and determine who looks to be a starter for next year. Probably 85 percent whos going to start next year,Ž Klees said of how the depth chart worked out who the starters will be. These kids worked hard and earned itŽ … but then threw in a warning: Of course, they can lose it over the summer if they dont do what theyre supposed to.Ž The biggest praise was bestowed on James Douin and Daniel Sanders, each of whom caused a fumble and recovered a fumble and also had 10 tackles. The offense was led by receiver Jordan Franks with 9 catches for 100 yards. Keith Gavin played phenomenal on both sides of the ball,Ž Klees said. Gavin, who will be a sophomore this year, plays receiver and safety. And Klees acknowledged that the War Eagles air attack may be more developed than the running game because of the teams talents … including the passing arm of quarterback Feleipe Franks. We threw more than we ran in the spring game,Ž Klees said, noting it might be his “ rst game in which passes outnumbered running plays. Were definitely gonna have to throw it,Ž he said. Still, Klees intends to push his running game … and the featured back this year will be Monterrious Loggins, who rushed for 600 yards and six TDs last year. The only thing lacking in the ground attack is for the offensive line … still young … to come together as a group, Klees said. FILE PHOTOCoach Scott Klees10U All-Stars to hold “ sh fry RMS to hold football campBy ALAN ROSS Jimmie Johnson may have been a tad edgy to get to Victory Lane in Sundays Fed Ex 400 (bene“ ting Autism Speaks) at one of his favorite tracks. But when the “ ve-time Cup champion jumped a crucial restart with 20 laps to go at Dover International Raceway and was subsequently ” agged for a drive-through penalty, any shot at a win was gone. The disputed of“ cials call set up a wide open dash for the checkered flag, with Juan Pablo Montoya churning toward the “ nish line looking for his third career Cup win. But it was not to be for the former IndyCar and F1 star. With three laps to go, Tony Stewart passed Montoya for his “ rst victory since last July and the 48th of his Cup career. The Joe Gibbs Racing ensemble of Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, and Kyle Busch led 1-2-3 early, before Hamlin fell back and Busch and Kenseth moved to the front for the “ rst 100 laps. Kenseth then took over, looking like a contender to pick up his fourth win of the year, but a blown engine a third of the way through the race ended his day and handed the lead back to Busch. Much of the early race drama centered on Johnsons problems. At one point, the seven-time Dover winner teetered on the brink of going a lap down after starting 24th in the 400-lap race. But not far beyond the midpoint, the Team Lowes 48 car was in the lead. On the races “ nal caution, with 24 laps left, Johnson led a line down pit road but came out behind Montoya. Both had opted for two tires. It was then that Johnson was judged to have jumped the restart and the 48 was black-” agged. Improbably, the new race leaders were Montoya and Stewart, who had not been a major factor to that point. Stewart, ever the opportunist, looked ready to pounce with nine to go. For JPM, it was just too much Smoke. With three laps remaining, Stewart passed Montoya on the outside and make it stick. Jeff Gordon, who had taken four tires on the “ nal caution, held off Kyle Busch for third place for his 16th career Top 5 at Dover. Johnson “ nished 17th but managed to hold onto the points lead by 30 over Carl Edwards. The series moves to Long Pond, Pa., and Pocono Raceway this Sunday. INDYCAR DOUBLEHEADER: DUAL AT DETROIT: Baseball has its double-headers and now IndyCar Racing has put one in the books for auto racing. Not unlike NASCAR Sprint Cups twin 125-lappers before Daytona or the series of sprints at the annual allstar race, IndyCar has a history of running two races in an evening, also of shorter lengths, like 2011s Firestone Twin 275s in Texas, a throwback to earlier IndyCar eras in the 1970s and 80s when the twin-race format was also run. But never had the sport put on two full-length races back-to-back on consecutive days before this past weekends Dual at Detroit on the Belle Isle street circuit that puts the drivers through a physically withering gauntlet. And there were plenty of surprises. Unsponsored Mike Conway slipped into a Dale Coyne Racing machine previously driven by perennial backmarker Anna Beatriz and dominated Saturdays “ rst 70-lap affair. It was his second career IndyCar victory. Where there had been just three total cautions the “ rst day of the twin bill, that “ gure doubled in the “ rst 28 laps Sunday. Carnage was commonplace, but through it all, Saturdays surprise „ Conway „ was again simply awesome.Alan Ross is the author of Speaking of Graduating: Excerpts from Timeless Graduation Speeches.Ž His email is alanross_ sports@yahoo.com.THE COOL DOWN LAPControversial call factors into Stewart win at DoverSports groups announce donation for SAT prep Erectile Dysfunction Drugs May Be Dangerous To Your HealthFREE book by doctor reveals what the www.eddoctor.com. “Re-Store”Shadeville Highway926-4544Open Tues.

I cant believe it is already June and were only one month away from scallop season. Still havent heard any reports about scallops but as dry as it has been I have a feeling they will be here again this year. Snapper season opened on June 1st and reports are there are a pile of them out there. Mary Jackson from Tallahassee, her husband and several other couples went out of Mexico Beach on Sunday had had a super day. They went out 53 miles and came in with 17 snapper and about 10 kings. Mary caught a 40 pound king, which was 50 inches long and had a 23-inch girth. Speaking of kings, CQuarters Marina in Carabelle is getting geared up for the C-Quarters youth “ shing tournament, which will be the ninth tournament of this type and is free to kids 16 and younger. This will be held on July 20. Then on Aug. 3 and 4 will be the 10th annual kingfisher shootout. All proceeds go to the Leukemia Research Foundation and have been for the last seven tournaments. So far they have raised more than $600,000 for research. Jimmy Crowder lost his daughter to leukemia and this tournament is one way he hopes a cure will someday be found for he awful disease. This is a great tournament and for a great cause. You can go to C-Quarters web page for more information. In June, the Warriors and Quiet Waters will be bringing recovering soldiers and their families to the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center. The center is footing the bill for most of this and WQW is paying the rest. This is a great organization and we owe so much to these soldiers that put their lives on the line so that we can “ sh and do the things we love to do in this great country of ours. If you would like to make a donation you can send it to WQW, 5032 Capital Circle SW Ste 2, Tallahassee FL 32305. Remember that all monies raised go to helping soldiers. There are no paid employees and everyone is a volunteer. The 25th Annual Big Bend Saltwater Classic will be held over Fathers Day Weekend. It will start on June 14 and conclude on June 16. This year the tournament site is being moved back to the Moorings Marina in Carrabelle where it was held for so many years. John Swanson who started Fishing for the Brave is in charge of Take a Soldier Fishing initiative for the Classic. He “ nds teams that want to volunteer to take a military member fishing during the tournament as an honorary teammate and he links them up with military members. Its another great way to give back to our military heroes. Any interested teams or military members/veterans can contact John at fishingforthebrave@live. com. From The DockBY CAPT.

Bay oyster populations have suffered mainly due to lack of freshwater ” ow over the past few years. This temporary rule was established via executive order of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. State of“ cials, working with the oyster industry, concluded that these changes would help conserve oyster resources throughout the summer harvesting season and serve as a proactive measure to balance availability of harvestable oysters with efforts to restore oyster populations. Commercial harvest of oysters will be closed on Fridays and Saturdays. The temporary rule will expire Aug. 31, when the summer bars close and the winter oyster bars reopen for harvest. All other bag limits, seasons and size limits remain unchanged. Apalachicola Bay includes all waters within St. George Sound, East Bay, Apalachicola Bay, St. Vincent Sound in Franklin County and Indian Lagoon in Gulf County. This change does not apply to active oyster leases or recreational harvest. Apalachicola Bay oysters account for about 92 percent of Floridas oyster landings and about 8 percent of all landings in the United States (average from 2007-2011).

More than 100 people attended the meeting, the “ rst of two planned in Florida. I am again amazed to see the overwhelming support for the Councils good work and the number of citizens attending our meetings to provide thoughtful comments,Ž said Mimi Drew, Governor Rick Scotts representative on the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council. I look forward to hearing from others at our next meeting in St. Petersburg.Ž The draft Initial Comprehensive Plan establishes overarching restoration goals for the Gulf Region, describes how the Council will solicit, evaluate and select ecosystem restoration projects and programs. The goals, objectives and evaluation criteria are intended to guide the Councils ecosystem restoration funding decisions. The goals provide the Councils desired longterm outcomes for Gulf restoration; the objectives outline the broad types of activities that will achieve the goals; and the evaluation criteria are used to evaluate proposals and give highest priority to the programs and projects that best achieve comprehensive ecosystem restoration. The draft Plan also describes the process for the approval of State Expenditure Plans that will fund ecosystem restoration and economic development. The Department provided an update on the Council projects that have been submitted to the state and accepted comment on the draft Initial Comprehensive Plan. An additional public meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. June 17 at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg. The RESTORE Act, which was passed by Congress on June 29, 2012 and signed into law by President Obama on July 6, 2013, creates the Council, and establishes various funding categories. The Council is comprised of the “ ve Gulf State Governors and six federal agencies. The Council is required, after notice and opportunity for public comment, to have published an Initial Comprehensive Plan by July 6, 2013.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 6, 2013 www.thewakullanews.coma peek into life on and under the water W a t e r W a y s Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiencesCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon The windy alternative. We have been reporting about what is happening in and around the Wakulla underwater world for quite some time now. The reason I live here in Wakulla are the amazing and awe-inspiring caves, and as of last summer I even took up spear “ shing in the gulf. The truth is, however, that I found myself not doing enough of any of these lately. Life has a way of changing plans for you. Conditions in the caves are seasonal, as ” ooding brings dark and murky waters. Conditions in the gulf are seasonal as well, and the trip to an offshore site always carries the risk of simply being blown out. Diving in wind and waves can be fun, but can quickly become dangerous. About 25 years ago, and Im starting to feel old writing this, my dad was happy to “ nd me as a buddy to go windsur“ ng. These were the early days of the sport, and technology and knowledge were mostly adopted from sailing, with limited success. Whenever there was a bit of wind on the weekend, my dad would pack up the boards onto the roof of the car, we tossed our wetsuits and other gear in the back, and off we went for an hours drive to a lake. During the week we would longingly look at trees bending in the wind. Even the cold winter would not hold us back. The sport slowly came to an end when my dad found himself unable to pursue it further. Until the other day, when I received an invitation to give it a try at the local surf club. As it turns out, the beach is 10 minutes from my house, and after over 20 years I found myself standing on a board again. Technology has improved vastly, making rigging and handling of the board much simpler. Shaky in the beginning, I still knew the moves, and quickly became accustomed again. What a blast! What that means, I guess, is that I have no more excuses: If the caves are black, and the wind keeps boats from going far into the gulf, Ill just ditch the dive gear and don the surf attire. I just wish my dad was still around so I could tell him, he would have enjoyed the news. Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Good food, great friends and beautiful weather made for a perfect event. David Guttman and Norma Hill must have coordinated as they came in almost the same attire with matching Coast Guard shirts! Bruce Connors also got to mix a little work in with the afternoon completing his swim test for crew quali“ cation. Hurricane season is upon us. Each year we plan for the worst and hope for the best. We are more fortunate than many in how our area experiences the impact from hurricanes, however as recent history shows, we are not immune to the devastation that can be caused. Even a tropical storm or depression can bring ” ooding and surge that destroy most in its path. According to NOAA, on average the Atlantic/ Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico sees 12 storms annually, with six becoming Hurricanes. Three become major hurricanes with two making landfall. This year, the forecast is for 16 tropical storms with eight becoming hurricanes, four being category three or higher and three making landfall in the Unites States. While most of the storms seem to miss us, we are not without risk. There are several things you can do to prepare yourself in the event that a storm is heading our way. First it is important to know what your risk is. Are you in a flood prone area or at risk if high winds and surge hit us? Securing outdoor items and using tie down straps for buildings that could be moved off their foundations is great prevention. If you are close to the coast, it is important to pay attention to the forecast, as we are very limited in our routes inland. If you choose to stay home, be ready with plenty of water, nonperishable foods, battery operated lighting and a battery operated radio. If you use a candle or other “ re, “ re crews may have a very hard time getting to you if it were to get out of hand. Medication and cash on hand are also important things to consider. Try to keep at least a week of medication handy so that you have enough to make it through until stores are able to re-open. In the event of a power loss, cash may be the only ability you have to get things you may need. A good emergency coffee can fund is never a bad idea. You may also want to keep paper copies of your insurance policies in a Ziploc just in case it is needed. In addition to taking care of yourself and your family, pets are another important consideration in being prepared. Be sure to have extra water and food for them as well. While this may seem like we cover the same things each year, and sometime more than once, it is in most peoples nature to think that we have been spared so far, and there is no need to be overly prepared. The recent severe storm outbreaks around the Midwest have brought to the forefront just how important our safety is and how much we are lucky to have more than a few minutes warning when a hurricane, tropical storm or depression is heading our way. You can download the National Weather Service preparedness brochure from: http://www.nws. noaa.gov/om/hurricane/ pdfs/hurricane_safety. pdf. 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.

Page 16A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 6, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comThe low frequency droning is unmistakable. The casual ” ight pattern belies the potential agony of an encounter and the real possibility of a painful attack from multiple directions. Wasps in Wakulla County, and most other locales, are known for their dyspeptic nature and vile retaliation if provoked. They are the grumps of mini aerial realm. Provocation may be innocent or malicious, wasps do not care. Whether an oblivious gardener stumbles upon a nest or a spiteful adolescent uses a wasp nest for target practice with a green pine cone, just as many wasps as available will strike back. These social wasps live in colonies much like honeybees, and may have up to several thousand members. Depending on the species, they build nests in protected place above the ground or below the soil surface. Some social wasps are omnivorous, feeding on overripe fruit and carrion. Some of these social wasps, such as yellow jackets, may scavenge for dead insects to provide for their young. Sporadically, some species, such as yellow jackets and hornets, will invade honeybee hives and rob honey. Like honeybees, social wasp colonies consist of mostly female workers. Another similarity is only the females have stingers. Unlike honeybees, the queens live only one year. A majority of the wasp colony dies away in autumn, leaving only the young mated queens alive. During this period they leave the nest and “ nd a suitable area to hibernate for the winter. After emerging from hibernation in spring the young queens search for a suitable nesting site. The queen will build a basic wood “ ber nest roughly the size of a hickory nut and will begin to lay eggs. The queen raises the “ rst several sets of wasp eggs until enough female workers can maintain the offspring without the queens assistance. All of the eggs produced at this time are sterile female workers who will begin to construct a more elaborate nest around their queen as they grow in number. There are also solitary wasps which live and operate alone in Wakulla County. They do not construct nests, instead depositing their eggs on host insects which serve as a sort of mobile nursery-caf. When the eggs hatch, the host becomes the “ rst meal for the wasp larva. Adult wasps commonly feed on nectar and pollen. There is also a native wingless wasp in Wakulla County. It is commonly known as the Velvet Ant or the Cow Killer. While it will sting, as other wasp will, there are no veri“ able reports of livestock lethality. Almost every pest insect species has at least one wasp species which preys upon it or parasitizes it. This places wasps as a critically important natural control. Some wasps are increasingly used in agricultural pest control on organic and conventional farm as they prey mostly on pest insects and have little impact on crops. Nasty dispositions aside, they are quite effective at tormenting their assigned prey.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 6, 2013 T a k i n g C a r e o f B u s i n e s s Taking Care of Business B u s i n e s s N e w s f r o m Business News from By PETRA SHUFFof the ChamberThe May chamber luncheon was hosted by Dorothy White at the quaint Ouzts Too Oyster Bar & Grill in Newport, and it was obvious she was very excited to have us. The menu included bacon wrapped shrimp with slaw & Garlic bread, fried or grilled shrimp over Cajun rice with garlic bread and salad, or smoked mullet, cheese grits and hushpuppies with tea/coffee or soft drink, and fried Oreos for dessert. While waiting on our orders to arrive, we had a chance to sample Dorothys homemade smoked mullet dip, fried green beans, chips and salsa, and gumbo. Dorothy introduced her staff … Sandy, Lorna, Vivian and Cole, the most important people at Ouzts,Ž as she put it. Dorothy was born in Tallahassee, and grew up in Gainesville. Drawn back to this area, she purchased the run-down restaurant seven years ago, with the help of Walter Dodson and Wakulla Bank. She was always fond of Newport because of its history, and shared some of it with us: Newport was the “ fth largest town in Florida back in the 1800s, thriving through turpentine industry and the local shipyard, which she would like to see be turned into a museum one day, to share with others some of the rich history of this region. Most of Ouzts food is homemade, and includes dishes like smoked ribs and mullet, pulled pork, grilled and fried seafood, oysters cooked or served on the half shell, and let us not forget the hand-cut ribeye steaks, and more. On Thursday nights, you can enjoy the raw oysters and beer special while kicking back and listening to some excellent pickin and grinnin performed by local musicians, Friday night come and enjoy karaoke … even if you dont sing, or come on down Sunday afternoons for live music from 3 to 6 p.m. Just call 925-6448 to see whos playing. On June 1, Ouzts will be hosting the Angle men Poker Run, and on June 8 the restaurant is the third stop for the Wakulla County Habitat for Humanity Poker Run. You might be interested to know that the restaurant will be featured in the July edition of Cooking Light magazine. Before announcing new member Steve Bolton with McCall Services, a residential and commercial pest control and yard maintenance company, Mary congratulated our board member Dr. Rachel Sutz Pienta for being selected for the Tallahassee Leadership class. Congratulations, Rachel! New representative of Tallahassee Lenders Consortium, Mary Jones, announced that TLC helps families save their homes from foreclosure by providing delinquency counseling, and TLC is an approved Advisor Agency for Floridas Hardest Hit Fund, and can assist unemployed or underemployed with mortgage payments.

Megan Picht introduced her United Way co-workers Sarah Barnett Deeb, vice-president of resource development, and Karen Frazee, director of business campaigns. Luis Serna, county planning and community development director, introduced his guest James Melvin, the countys new building of“ cial. June Vause introduced herself as one of Centennial Banks loan of“ cers before turning the ” oor over to our monthly spotlight presenter, Business Development Officer Walter Dodson. As you may already know, Centennial Bank is a full service “ nancial institution, handling loans, insurance, brokerage services, and the secondary market. Centennial Bank moved into Wakulla County three years ago and is headquartered in Arkansas, with of“ ces in Florida as far south as the Florida Keys, and in Alabama. Centennial is very active in our community and contributes annually to festivals such as the Panacea Blue Crab Festival, Rock the Dock “ shing tournament, Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin Festival, the St. Marks Stonecrab Festival and Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, and has also sponsored the new scoreboard at the Wakulla High School football stadium. Before starting with our monthly drawings, Mary again mentioned how much she enjoys working with Petra on the luncheons. Bill Versiga won the cash drawing of $47. Announcements: Susan Schatzman, volunteer for Wakulla Habitat for Humanity, handed out ” yers for the June 8 Wakulla Habitat Motorcycle Poker Run, to fund the 12th house-build in Wakulla.

For more information, tickets, or to donate prizes, call Peggy 9265037 or Susan 519-2292. Emily Winston and J.R. shared that the Wildwood Golf Course is currently undergoing re-design to make it one of the best golf courses in North Florida, and will no longer require membership. In addition, the country club will soon be known as Sandy OaksŽ and hired a certi“ ed chef, Tarecus Keaton, who has 20 years of restaurant experience. Molly Lord shared programs of the Early Learning Coalition, providing services to families, children, and child care providers in the seven counties it serves, including Wakulla. Family support services include tuition assistance programs, child care information services, and community referrals that support each familys individual success by connecting them to the information and resources they need.

This Thursday, June 6 from 6-8 in the evening and Friday, June 7 from 10 to noon we will be holding our annual Registration Fun Days for our Summer Program. While you can sign up any time over the summer, these two days will give you an opportunity to get any questions answered by our Childrens Coordinators, Leilania Nichols & Molly Clore, or myself as you sign up your children for all the fun we plan to have this summer. We dropped off brochures at the local schools a couple weeks back, telling in detail about everything we have planned this summer. If you didnt receive one, we have them available at the front desk, on our website, or I can happily email you one. This is our favorite time of the year and we have the most fun providing these programs and performers for the families of Wakulla County free of charge thanks to the Friends of WCPL. We hope to see you next week when the Summer Programs of“ cially begin with our enrichment programs and “ rst performance! FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE On June 7, our “ rst Friday night movie of the summer will be an animated “ lm starring the voice talents of Brenden Fraser, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker, and many more. This PG (action and rude humor) “ lm tells the story of admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser), who is a national hero to the blue alien population of Planet Baab. A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, bythe-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASAs no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Garys warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission. But when Scorch “ nds himself caught in a “ endish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) its up to scrawny, risk-adverse Gary to do the real rescuing. As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure-hungry son, Kip. Doors open at 6:45 for the 7 p.m. showing. SUMMER READING BOOKSAs we do every year, we have ordered multiple copies of all of the summer reading and Sunshine State books assigned by the Wakulla County Schools. Those that are available from our e-book vendor are available in that format as well. We encourage everyone to check out the books early to avoid long waiting lists as the summer moves along. Waiting lists have already begun on many of the books. These books are not eligible for renewal and must be read in the 3 week checkout period in order for the most students to have access. We appreciate your patience this summer as we continue to do all we can to provide the students of Wakulla County with their summer reading materials.By SCOTT JOYNER Library Director
