Rankings are based on the percent of students who score pro cient, which is at or above grade level. Wakulla students ranked number one in the region consisting of Wakulla, Leon, Calhoun, Liberty, Taylor, Jefferson, Franklin, Gadsden, and Madison on nine of the areas tested and were in the top three for all Reading, Math, Science and U.S. History scores. Wakulla ranked rst alone in the region on 4th, 6th, and 7th grade Reading, tying for rst in 8th grade Reading with Liberty County. In Math, Wakulla students ranked rst alone in the region in 6th and 7th grade, tying with Leon in 8th grade.

The current policy provides for a 75-foot buffer zone, which is considered a preservation or conservation area. The buffer is broken down into two parts, where the outer 40-foot band may only be disturbed by residential development if absolutely necessary and the 35-feet closest to the wetland is considered a no touch and no development portion. Chairman Randy Merritt, whose idea it was to bring the issue to the table, prefaced the discussion with a clari cation to his proposal and pointed out that the countys comprehensive plan specifically grants the board of commissioners permission to establish a variance procedure that grants reasonable use of residential and non-residential properties in relation to the buffer. There seems to be a lot of misinformation going around about what Im proposing, Merritt began. What Im proposing is to allow a variance inside the 35-foot buffer zone if and only if the only option you have to be able to use your property is to get inside that 35-foot zone. For such a case, Merritt said, he wants to set up a procedure to allow a variance. Merritt addressed the publics concerns that this variance would allow developers to ll in the countys wetlands, producing disproportional storm water runoff, ooding and destroying the ecosystem. To which Merritt contended that wetlands are governed heavily by the state and that lling them simply wasnt an option. You cannot just go ll in a wetland no matter what we say, Merritt assured the audience. We dont have that authority. Another part to Merritts suggestion was a proposed change in the comp plan language that made county wetland restrictions apply only to those wetlands whose surface waters are connected to waters of the state in other words, to remove language relating to the countys protection of isolated wetlands as isolated wetlands are protected under state jurisdiction, said Merritt. Citizens for and against the variance got up to speak more than 60 speaker cards were handed in. A majority of the speakers opposed the proposal, expressing concern for the unique natural habitats of Wakulla as well as the shing industry. Those who were for the change seemed to be united under one idea an idea which would later prove to be the reason for a board majority vote property rights.

Springtime ends and summer of cially begins on Friday, June 21.PHOTO BY AMANDA MAYORBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net On Tuesday, June 11, the city of Sopchoppy held an election that would determine the fate of two city commissioners up for re-election as well as one open seat on the council. Sopchoppy Mayor Colleen Skipper-Mitchell and Commissioner Anginita Rosier were both on the ballot. Skipper-Mitchell had made history in 2001, as she was the rst African American female to be elected to any of ce in Wakulla. Nine years later she would be given the honor of becoming the rst female mayor of Sopchoppy. Rosier took her own seat on the council in 2010. Both, however, were swept from of ce in an election of small margins. Skipper-Mitchell lost reelection by one lone vote and Rosier by a margin of 15. This means that Sopchoppy has three new city commissioners: Eddie Evans, Nathan Lewis and Glenn Rudd join Lara Edwards and Martha Hodge Evans to form a brand new board. The election final vote results were Eddie Evans 89; Nathan Lewis 75; Glenn Rudd 66; Colleen SkipperMitchell 65; Anginita Rosier 40. As reported in last weeks News, there were complaints about the election procedures carried out by city of cials. Allegations included the mishandling of absentee ballots, voter suppression tactics and canvassing board irregularities allegations that Lara Edwards says are unwarranted. It upset me to hear (and read) the allegations in regards to the recent City Council election in Sopchoppy, Edwards wrote in an email. This claim is entirely unfounded and ridiculous. We support and encourage every citizen of Sopchoppy to participate in our elections and I am con dent in the integrity of our electoral process. Edwards wrote that Sopchoppy is an honest city with good, hardworking people who went out and voted for who they wanted. Sopchoppy City Clerk Jackie Lawhon says that no of cial election complaints were made to her of ce. I would not have even known about the complaints if it had not been for the media calling and asking, she said. Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells, who helped the city with the election, also said that he had received no such complaints. This week, on Tuesday, June 18, Rosier said she led an of cial complaint with the Florida Division of Elections and that it is currently being reviewed. She added that hers wasnt the only one led as, according to her, other citizens also submitted complaints. All I wanted was a fair election, said Rosier. I certainly understand and accept that in politics there are winners and there are losers. However, when individuals feel the need to resort to malicious tactics that not only violate a persons civil rights but violates the law in the process, it becomes a problem that affects this community as a whole. Rosier touched on the time she served as a city commissioner. Turn to Page 3ACITY OF SOPCHOPPY ree new city commissioners elected; two incumbents swept out complaints of voting irregularities
By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla school board approved a lease to take over a closed automotive repair shop for the new automotive repair vocational program set to start in the fall. At their meeting on Monday, June 17, school board members approved the lease, said to be less than $1,000 a month, for the closed shop behind the Crawfordville SuperLube. School board members and Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce praised Super-Lube for working with the school district on the lease, and helping in other ways such as putting school of cials with a national tool company to supply the shop. Pearce said that the district has already saved an estimated $30,000 from the anticipated costs of starting the program. At the meeting, it was reported that 90 students have signed up for the automotive repair program more than can be taken into the class. School board member Greg Thomas urged school staff to make the automotive program like the very successful medical academy program, in that students must be competitive to be admitted. Pearce said he is hopeful the program will be successful and the district can add more vocational programs in the future welding and heating/ ventilation/air conditioning and cosmetology were some programs he mentioned. In another matter, Missy Rudd, who heads the local teachers union, the Wakulla Classroom Teachers Association, praised the district for its efforts in negotiating a new teachers contract. Rudd praised Karen Wells, the districts human resources director, and Randy Beech, the district financial officer, for presenting a plan that gives teachers a fair salary raise while allowing them to get merit bonuses. There had been some anticipated conflicts around the state with teacher con icts over the merit pay issue. Rudd and Superintendent Bobby Pearce said the Wakulla contract has become a model throughout the state and credited Beech with working through the merit pay issue. Pearce called the Wakulla position groundbreaking. What exactly is in the teacher contract wasnt revealed: the school board is scheduled to vote to give its approval to the contract in July, and teachers will vote on it in August. Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net Wakulla Countys Tourist Development Council is down a director, but the show must go on and it is. The advisory council held their first meeting since Director Pam Portwoods resignation at the end of May. With a call to order, Chairman David Moody got the early morning ball rolling and the council seemed to hit the ground running. With grant money to spend and future RESTORE Act money hopefully coming their way soon, the TDC discussed advertising dollars first. Billboard purchasing options in the Panama City, Perry and Jacksonville area were on the table, but steep monthly price quotes from one company left the council hesitant to commit before rst seeking better prices. The Tallahassee Democrats annual publication of Living Here was discussed as well. This will be similar to a phone book in how its used, said Moody. The council was in favor of the idea of being stationed in a publication that could be referred to throughout the year. They plan to promote the countys seafood resources with an advertisement containing information on where and when to nd Wakullas seafood and contact information for those providers. Other publications that the council seemed to be in favor of were Bird Watchers Digest and the 2014 edition of the Travel Guide to Florida. Wakulla scalloping and other seafood promotion will appear in ad form in The Angler. Pending the decision by county staff to install them, the county should have new gateway signs going up soon as a vote by the council allowed Moody to spend the money required to pay permit fees. Also up for discussion was the $10,000 that the TDC has available for county promotional videos. According to TDC members, four videos are currently in progress through a hired videographer. They are part of a series named New Moon in June and feature the countys shing and other marine activities which are slated to go up on the website, Facebook and YouTube. The TDC plans to make more videos focusing on things such as the Wakulla blue crab industry, scalloping, ounder gigging and more. An idea for a Hook to Cook series where a short video follows the process from catching the sh to preparation and cooking it was suggested. The TDC also heard a presentation from the Historical Societys Murray McLaughlin on the societys current outreach efforts. McLaughlin presented a project currently in the works that makes a push to promote the countys cultural heritage and therefore boost Wakullas tourism. According to McLaughlin, a donation has been made of about 40 acres off Zion Hill Church Road that will serve as the site for the future open-air museum called the Heritage Village. The village will eventually house historic homes that will be relocated to the site, a farmstead, Native American and African American interpretive trails and campsites and other historically accurate aspects of Wakulla County. Other plans for the Heritage Village include 6-8 annual festivals, seine yard recreation and a novehicle, pedestrian only atmosphere. Completion of this project will take anywhere from three to ten years depending on endorsement and volunteer efforts. The TDCs meeting wrapped up with reminders to go over the proposed by-laws which, according to Moody, will help the council achieve its goal to increase the precision on how they operate and a reminder that the countys new seafood logo will be unveiled on June 20. We hope to see this logo go far and wide, said Moody. Both in the county and out of the county. The TDC will hold its next regular meeting on July 11. From Page 1A With all of the increased rigor and constant changes in education, our school district continues to perform well, said Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce. Wakulla students, teachers, staff, administrators and parents are to be commended for their hard work. We are very pleased with these results, he said. Wakulla County School District has also been named an Academically High Performing District by the state for the sixth consecutive year based on last years district A grade, good nancial audit, and meeting the class size requirements. Individual student scores have been mailed home or are available at the childs school, plus they can be viewed on the parent portal where parents are able to view their childs grades at www.wakullaschooldistrict.org.Wakulla schools score superior in state, regionWakulla TDC pushes ahead without a director Special to The NewsThis weekend, June 22 and 2, the Sportsmans Paradise Amateur Radio Club (SPARC) will hold its annual Ham Radio Field Day at the Wakulla Station Trail Head Park, which is located less than one mile north of Highway 267/Bloxham Cutoff in Wakulla Station on Old Woodville Highway. The park is part of the Tallahassee -St. Marks bike trail. The event is held from 2 p.m. on Saturday to 2 p.m. on Sunday, and the public is welcome to join in on the fun, to learn, and even get a little hands-on experience with radio, talking to others at distant stations (possibly on the other side of the world!). The hobby is for all ages. It is not uncommon to have radio operators as young as 15 years old, but dont be too surprised to nd one that is 6. The hobby is also known for including rock music stars, country music stars, actors, etc, but is mostly comprised of everyday people looking for a fun hobby that is rewarding, allowing for meeting new people, interesting discussions, and even getting involved in helping in the times of disaster when other forms of communications fail, such as phone lines, cell phone towers, and the internet. Hams have helped out in emergency situations in our country and around the world, in the wake of hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes and terrorist attacks. Hams are working in local public service agencies, hospitals, shelters, search and rescue as volunteers. But another facet to the hobby is just plain fun, be it just talking to others while on the daily commute locally, or contesting against other ham radio operators, attempting to make the most contacts with folks in other areas of the USA, as well as almost every country in the world, and those that are out of this world on board the International Space Station. This years Field Day site is being made possible by the DEP, Dept. of Florida Greenways and Trails, Wakulla County Sheriffs Office Emergency Management, the Wakulla Department of Public Safety, and The American Red Cross.

By RACHEL PIENTADemocratic chairOn Tuesday, June 4th, more than fty area Democrats gathered at Poseys Dockside Cafe in Panacea. Local Wakulla Democrats were joined by guests from Jefferson, Bay, and Leon counties, many of whom said they were looking forward to hearing congressional candidate Gwen Graham that evening. Featured speakers for the evening included state Sen. Bill Montford, who represents the new District 3 which includes Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hamilton, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor and Wakulla counties. Montford provided a legislative review and report of how District 3 fared during the 2013 legislative session. Montford noted that the area still faces hard times on the road to economic recovery and told stories of parents without jobs and hungry children across the rural district that go to bed without supper. Jackson County Commissioner Jeremy Branch spoke as a special guest from the western reaches of Congressional District 2. Branch is serving his second term in of ce, and spoke about the need to stay focused on local government issues that impact our day to day lives like pocketbook issues related to the economy. Gwen Graham, who has led to run for Congressional District 2, was also on the program to speak. Floridas 2nd congressional district consists of the eastern part of the Florida Panhandle. It includes the counties of Washington, Bay, Jackson, Gulf, Calhoun, Liberty, Gadsden, Leon, Jefferson, Wakulla, Franklin, Taylor and part of Madison. Graham discussed what it was like to grow up in a political atmosphere as the daughter of former Florida Gov. Bob Graham and how her life experiences have led her to seek public of ce. It was great to see so many area Democrats turn out on a Tuesday night, said Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee Chair Rachel Pienta. This was the rst big gathering weve had since November. After listening to the questions raised by audience members during tonights question and answer session, I think local Democrats are ready to make some changes when they go to the polls in 2014, Pienta said. From Page 1A The main argument against which seemed to be the claim that, as some citizens put it, people know if they have wetlands on their property when they buy their property. But no argument against granting Merrritts proposal would prove solid enough to crack the foundations for three other commissioners votes. For me this is a matter of property rights, stated Commissioner Richard Harden. I believe one of the most basic freedoms of living in our country is having the ability to own property and to do what you would like to do with your property. There are people dying every day for that freedom. Commissioner Ralph Thomas concurred with Harden. This is a freedom issue, said Commissioner Thomas. If I make a mistake Im going to make a mistake on the side of freedom every time. Thomas said he understood and was for the science behind the conflicting argument, but that for him it comes down to freedom. I dare say that each and every one of us can name examples of where we think the government oversteps, he said. Well, this is just another one of those examples. When we live in a free society, sometimes we have to support something we disagree with for the sake of freedom and thats where I am on this. On June 13, Commissioner Howard Kessler hosted a town hall meeting in order to allow citizens to express their concerns on the issue and to discuss the agenda item as a whole. Most of those that showed up were on the opposing side of Merritts proposal and that was the side Commissioner Kessler went to bat for during Mondays meeting as he argued money, the environment. We know more about how these wetlands are vital to our best interest than we did in the past and we should act differently, Kessler said. Commissioner Jerry Moore attempted to put some of the publics mind at ease. The damage that were talking about is a perceived damage, Moore said. It is not a damage that actually happened or will happen, its what some few people think may happen. I support Commissioner Merritt on the elimination of the isolated wetlands. Moore also said that the county was crying wolf if it thinks that this change in the ordinance will lead to a massive amount of developing near wetlands as there are very few instances where a wetland lot is even developable. With that, Chairman Merritts proposal to allow staff to prepare a comprehensive plan amendment that would allow wetland variances within the entire 75 foot buffer, remove isolated wetlands from county wetland regulations and to grant him permission to work with staff on changes was motioned, seconded and passed with a 4-1 vote.Board revises wetlands ordinanceCity election generates controversyFrom Page 1AI exit my tenure on the commission with my dignity intact because I know that the decisions I made while in of ce were made with the citizens best interest in mind, she said. Rosier added that this experience has not deterred her from politics or from running for other of ces in the future. In an advertisement in this weeks Wakulla News, Skipper-Mitchell thanked the citizens of Sopchoppy for the 13 years she was granted by them to serve the city three of which were as mayor.

Page 4A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com By CHARLIE CREELWakulla County Sheriff Many times over the years we have heard someone ask the question: What does it mean to be an American? We probably dont think about the answer as often as we should but I will attempt to answer the question for you tonight through my eyes. Many Americans have given their lives for the privileges we enjoy as American citizens. Our nation has fought hard and paid a very high price over the years to maintain the bene ts of being Americans that we enjoy today. I have my own personal experience that helps me relate to being a proud American. My father helped ght tyranny in the 1940s as a member of our military. He was asked to take part in the Battle of Normandy where scores of brave military men knew there was a good chance that they would not be coming back from Europe after being asked to ght Germans on the French beaches. Many brave Americans died on the beaches as they fought bravely for their country. Many more men and women have paid the ultimate sacri ce in other con icts as well. My father waited until I was a teenager until her told me a little about his Normandy experience. He would never go into details about what he saw on the beaches and what he was forced to witness. Back at that time you knew you had only three ways to get out of the war either the war ended, you got injured or you were killed. He would never speak about it. But he fought everywhere, all over Europe and in Africa. It was a dif cult time for those at war and those at home. But as Americans it was what we were asked to do and we did it willingly. As Americans we sometimes forget just how fortunate we are to live in one of the nest countries in the world. We may get angry and bitter about issues that divide us, but we always seem to come together as an American family whenever disasters or threats to our nation threaten our well being. We love our nation because there is room in our hearts to love other places and countries and help them whenever needed. We live in this country because we believe in our hearts that America is good and exceptional. America is different from other countries across the world and we know that we have a special role in the world. As Americans we feel like it is part of our fabric to help other countries and ght what we perceive as injustice. President John Kennedy reminded us that civility is not a sign of weakness and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But never fear to negotiate. President Abraham Lincoln governed at a time of great strife within our country but he understood where we needed to go. To quote Lincoln, With malice toward none, with charity for all, with rmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to nish the work we are in, to bind up the nations wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and a lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations. No other country is as exceptional as the United States of America. Americans have hope and opportunity that others do not. We should be proud of our country and the role it has played in shaping the history of the world. We should be proud of our troops and the sacri ces they have made and the enormous resources that were expended in Europe after World War II. It was American leadership that led to the alliance that was formed that allowed Europe to become more uni ed after a decade of tyranny. As Americans we should be proud of the enormous economic power we have and the military strength that allows the world to live in a certain degree of peace. We have core values that are in our Constitution, our body of laws, our democratic practices and our belief in free speech and equality that make us imperfect at times but still exceptional and proud. As Americans we do not allow our government to exploit the people of our country, but make sure we help those who need assistance. We have a care for our neighbors, both near and far, which makes us exceptional. When you also consider that we have been able to keep our American vision alive for centuries is not only a testament to the wise men who crafted our government and our nation but also an amazing achievement of longevity. Other governments come and go but the United States has remained in much the same form that our forefathers perceived in the 1770s. We are a melting pot of culture that has been mixed into a large bowl to create a mixture of talents and knowledge that keeps our country strong. As Americans we are entitled to certain rights and the belief of equality. We have the right to cast our vote in every election and have a say in who governs at the federal, state and local levels. Our country is temporarily ruled by representatives of the people and elected by them. The rights of minorities are guaranteed by law and are not subject to being voted away by the majority. As a resident of Florida and a citizen of the United States, I was born here and understand the culture and values of American exceptionalism that is deeply ingrained in our psyches and hearts. As the Sheriff of Wakulla County, I have taken an oath where I have been sworn to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution. It is our constitution that is intended to protect American citizens from government. Being an American is far more than the citizenship listed on a birth certi cate or Passport. It is far more nuanced and com plicated than a simple denotation on a state-issued document. It is a way of living believing and even dreaming. Republicans and Democrats may battle for their ideologies to be adopted in Washington, D.C., but the bottom line is that these political parties have the same goals for their America. Although their ideologies differ, they both embrace and represent America. Americas beauty lies in its multitude of differences and complexity and our military has fought for centuries to uphold these differences as one nation. It is the freedom that we enjoy in our country that makes it possible for Americas oneness to encompass and protect the many. Benjamin Franklin may be the epitome of an American. He pioneered the spirit of self-help and with little schooling he taught himself many things he needed in life. He was a printer, newspaper editor and magazine publisher.

Destroy wetlands? Encourage construction jobs? Honor the skill and tradition of boat building? Yes, those are in the air, but Im learning from Palaver Tree Theater that the scene in our county is supporting our local seafood industry, and its learning to realize our long-forgotten dreams of being really involved with lms directing, performing, meeting actors, and just plain enjoying the stories. Many events associated with Scene in Wakulla are free. Go to www.PalaverTreeTheater.org for time and place of these special events from Thursday night through Saturday. Wild owers in the Median is a free event. I just nished reading the book. Can you imagine being both furious and also understanding? Agnes Furey was both as she corresponded with the man who murdered her daughter and grandson. This true tale provides a new perspective on the humanity of all. Come feel the agony and hear the understanding emerge. Learn what restorative justice can mean to victims and criminals.

KATIE DEAL Deputy/photographerIm going to have a booth at the Sopchoppy Fourth of July Celebration. Compiled by Lynda KinseyBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net On Friday June 7, outside the Crawfordville Wal-Mart Supercenter, a rising Riversprings Middle School seventh grader shared her story amidst the sound of karaoke performers and the smell of grilled hotdogs and hamburgers. On May 16, 2011, 12year-old Tori Hillmon was diagnosed with osteosarcoma which, research shows, is the most common type of bone cancer and the sixth most common type of cancer found in children. It led to the amputation of her right leg, but if you never looked down, you would never know this child has faced tragedy. When asked about her diagnosis, Tori called it the C word, but with a smile on her face as she seemed to only be focused on the future. What happens in the past stays in the past, she said. When you bring up the past its past tense. Tori explained that her battle involved chemo, during which she said she was frequently tired and nauseated, but that today she is not only C word free, but shes involved in cheerleading, loves to dance and is working hard to hopefully play volleyball as well. Toris mother, Brinda Hillmon, says her daughter went through a tough challenge, but she persevered. She encourages other little girls like Tori, whose physical appearance may be altered due to illness or accident, not to worry about their outward appearance. Dont ever think this is the end, she urged. The Hillmons were at the event to help represent the Childrens Miracle Network (CMN) and were joined by representative Development Associate Stephanie Nicholas of Shands Hospital for Children and CMN. Nicholas had met the Hillmon family at a CMN event two years back. The Childrens Miracle Network constantly works to raise funds and partners with over 170 childrens hospitals all over North America. It began as a small televised fundraiser in 1983, founded by Marie Osmond and John Schneider, but now serves over 170,000 children each year. CMN not only helps cancer patients, but also those with AIDS, birth defects, accident victims, organ transplant patients and more. Brinda Hillmon attests to the legitimacy of the organization and the extent to which they help children and the community. When a donation is made, she says. It really does stay in the community. In regards to hosting the event, Crawfordville Wal-Mart Supercenter Manager Richard Russell said it was an honor to be able to help the children. Theyre our future, he said. We do what we can. For more information about the Childrens Miracle Network or to donate visit their website at childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org. Donations may also be made at the register during your next trip to WalMart or Sams Club. Cook Insurance celebrated its 100th anniversary on Monday, June 3, with a customer appreciation day.

SNYDERThroughout the year, many days of celebration are tucked capriciously into the calendar. So much so, it is hard to nd any day of the year where something or someone is not being observed, which has bene ted the greeting card company, you can be sure. I am not positive, but I think they have had a great deal to do with designating these days. Some days are celebrated a little more enthusiastically than others. The Fourth of July has recrackers; Halloween has funny and scary costumes, not to mention bags of candy; and Christmas boasts the Christmas tree and jolly old St. Nick with all his presents, and it is hard to compete with Christmas parties when it comes to celebrations. And we come to Mothers Day. According to experts, more telephone calls are placed on Mothers Day than any other day of the year. Also, try to walk into a restaurant and get a seat on that certain Sunday. There is a theory, which I subscribe to personally, stating the reason Fathers Day is so lame is because so much has been spent on Mothers Day, there is nothing left. I think there should be a rule that says, whatever Mothers Day costs fathers, mothers should spend on Fathers Day. This would do one of two things; decrease Mothers Day or puff Fathers Day spending. Personally, I am in favor of puf ng. Perhaps with some effort, Fathers Day could be a little more exciting. I am not saying this just because I am a father. Well, maybe I am, but if I dont who will? Fathers in general are rather humble and hesitant to speak about themselves. Contrary to popular opinion, every father knows talk is not cheap, and because he has spent so much on Mothers Day, he simply is practicing good manners and shuts up. However, every father needs to know he is truly appreciated by his family. Although you cannot buy a father, it is possible to rent him on occasion. I am in favor of celebrating Fathers Day any which way you can. It really does not matter to the father involved. Any father would consider his child a million dollar baby if he or she would just give a Fathers Day card to him, along with a nice hot cup of coffee while sitting in his favorite chair reading the newspaper. As it stands, Fathers Day is celebrated every which way but loose, and I believe it is time this has stopped. Too many loose ends concerning Fathers Day. It is a true crime the way certain things are left hanging concerning fathers. Some fathers have felt like the dead pool around Fathers Day, not knowing exactly what to expect. Mothers Day is rather simple. Every mother knows that she will get certain things; flowers, a Mothers Day card and dinner at her favorite restaurant. By the time Fathers Day comes around everybody is so exhausted from Mothers Day, not to mention most fathers are broke, nobody knows exactly how to make dads day special or, more importantly, who will nance it. Too many people are uptight about Fathers Day and feel like they are running the gauntlet. When I say people, I am referring primarily to Yours Truly. Fortunately, I have some ideas along this line. With some of the presents I have received over the years, I am beginning to think my children imagine me as a space cowboy, or maybe a high plains drifter driving around in a pink Cadillac heading for the bridges of Madison County. When it comes to being a father, I assure you I am not the rookie walking on a tightrope, directly in the line of re running toward heartbreak ridge. I have quite a bit of experience being a father, going back more than 40 years. As a father, I have three children notched on my belt. At times, I have felt like the enforcer and the only way to deal with those children was to use magnum force and hang em high. I must confess at times I felt like a pale rider sweating it out in the city heat, realizing no matter how hard I try it is not a perfect world we live in. What would make my day, and other fathers day, would be a present I could really use, or at least understand without spending an entire day reading the directions. In spite of all this, I have discovered one thing; being a father is its own reward. The Bible puts fatherhood high on the list of important positions in life. David, the Psalmist, put his feelings about being a father into familiar words to all who have read the Bible. Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5 KJV.) This year, my advice is, whatever it costs, go ahead and make dads day. He deserves 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. By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGRejection. Just hearing that word carries a sting. Its such a harsh, painful word. Such a harsh, painful reality. Nobody likes to be rejected. Yet everyone at some time has been rejected by someone. Some of you know what its like to be rejected for a part in a play or a band or a chorus. Some of you know what its like to be rejected for place on a sports team. Or to be picked last when choosing teams. Some of you know what its like to be rejected for a college. Some of you know the discouragement of rejection after rejection for a much needed job. Or most painfully, some of you know what its like to be rejected by someone you love. Some people who are scarred by rejection have come to see everything in life in terms of acceptance or rejection. Rejection can drive people to some pretty dark places. But rejection can also fuel people to do amazing things with their lives. In my own life, Ive certainly not been immune from rejection. Ive experienced rejection because Im a woman. When I first started seminary, I preached a couple of Sundays to try out at a little country church for my rst student pastorate. One couple threatened to leave the church if a woman was called, which in uenced the decision of the whole congregation. Thats OK, God led me elsewhere, and my commitment to ministry only deepened, and it helped make me a better and stronger pastor, and God has used me in ministry for 32 years now. It also positively impacted that little country church, because four years after that, they called a woman minister, with the seeds having been planted by my visit. There have also been times of rejection when I was single because Im a minister. Just imagine how fast some men can run when they discover their date is a minister. One guy said, You know, no man ever thinks, Gee, I wonder if shes a minister. Its just not even on a guys radar. And there were those I rejected who were not a good t with my ministry and values. But that whole dating/ rejection thing was only a self-screening process, that eventually led me to the very best man for me, chosen by God, who would consider himself mutually blessed and called to be the Ministers Mister. Stories abound of people whose victories in life have been fueled by rejection. Early in his career Walt Disneys company was forced to file for bankruptcy because of rejection by his nancial backers who pulled out. Disney then headed to Hollywood, where he launched an amazing unparalleled career in animation that spread into international acclaim.Turn to Page 7 HEAVENS TO BETSYRejection can sting

Edmund later was known as the man who conquered Mount Everest. Beethovens music teacher declared him hopeless at composing, yet became one of the worlds most famous and in uential of all composers, as well as a virtuoso pianist. Thirty-eight times, publishers rejected Margaret Mitchells Gone with the Wind. Charles Dickens secretly mailed off his manuscript, petri ed that his friends would nd out and ridicule him. The manuscript was rejected, and so were others, before he won the hearts of millions with such classics as Oliver Twist. An invitation was extended to witness one of the worlds most historic moments the Wright brothers first ight. Only ve people showed up. As Billy Graham preached, a missionarys daughter battled an uncontrollable urge to run out of the meeting. It wasnt conviction that made her squirm, but her response to what she considered appalling preaching. That girl was his future wife. It is so easy to allow rejection to defeat us. Rejection can often become the gateway to greatness and extraordinary achievements. The life of Christ is the greatest example of rejection turned into victory. If you are facing rejection, do not give up. While humans may hurt and disappoint us, God will never leave us, never reject us, but offer us a love that is unconditional and everlasting. Allow God to use whatever pain, rejection and suffering you may experience to help you rise above it and grow stronger. Allow God to use your rejection to turn it into compassion that makes a difference in the lives of others. Rejection can become be a blessing that brings out the best in us. Rev.

Franklin and his fellow scouts built the WCSO Range a new flag pole while also landscaping the area in front of the facilitys of ce. Cody is home schooled and has lived in Tallahassee for two years after moving to Leon County from Naples. To achieve the final rank of Eagle Scout, the scout must show that he can prove himself through leadership and helping the community. The project followed several steps as Cody created the project in his own mind and contacted Sgt. Dale Evans at the WCSO Range to see if the project would work for the sheriffs office. He took the potential project through an Eagle Scout committee who approved his plan. His next step was to raise the funds necessary to pay for the project and organize the entire operation before going back before the committee a second time On May 25, Cody and his fellow scouts and scout leaders were joined by his parents, Tony and Dawn Franklin, at the range as they completed the project. Landscaping and lights were included in the project and the old ag pole was converted for use at the entrance of the range to tell visitors whether the range is hot or cold. A ag ceremony was held at the end of the work day to note the completion of the project. Cody was joined by his grandfather Ron Franklin and great-grandmother Frances Franklin as they worked near the blasts of guests using the various sections of the range. Sgt. Evans said he was pleased with the maturity and dedication shown by Cody and his scouting friends. The Franklins are members of the WCSO Range and Cody said he wanted to do something to improve the appearance of the facility while also honoring America. I just wanted to thank Cody Franklin for his dedication and hard work to get our new ag pole and American Flag at the range, said Sgt. Evans. I also wanted to thank Boy Scout Troop 115 for their hard work assisting with the project. It will be nice to see the great job the guys did every day I go to work.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSuperintendent Bobby Pearce, Sheriff Charlie Creel, Undersheriff Trey Morrison, Sgt. Billy Jones, Crawfordville Principal Angie Walker, teacher Frankie Harvey, Transportation Coordinator Pat Jones and Crawfordville Elementary School students and parents.Walk-to-School Day observed on May 6 WHS Salutatorian speaks at graduationBy JONATHAN CHUNNGood evening the class of 2013, friends, family, and faculty. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the parents of this graduating class, our retired Superintendent of many years, David Miller, our new Superintendent Robert Pearce, our principal Mike Crouch, administrators, and of course our teachers. I wish I could name every person who has helped me succeed, but for the sake of time I will not. Our parents and teachers have provided the stepping stones for us to succeed and for that we are eternally grateful. Our school system has remained at the top of our state year in and year out, and this is a testament to the faculty and staff across the board. It has been a pleasure to have been a part of this family. We are all here tonight in celebration of what we, the class of 2013, have accomplished. Although we all have experienced some unfortunate losses, the moments each of us share will be looked back on with pride and joy. As War Eagles our class has been a part of a state championship in cheerleading, we were state runner-ups in football, state semi nalists in baseball, we had countless district championships in various sports, and we had several individual champions in sports like wrestling, cross country, track, and tennis. Some of my favorite memories have occurred beyond the classroom, something I believe almost all of us can agree on. Ill never forget Coach Klees having us practice football on those wonderful Saturday mornings. All of us players remember the on the line prior to the numerous gassers we were about to run. The memories of playing under the lights, with a packed stadium on the very field we stand on tonight will stay with me forever. Whether it was a win or loss, which most of the time it was a win, our band would play our alma mater, a shared jubilation that we all hold dear. Members of our class also set milestones through clubs like SWAT, and the Interact Club. Our NJROTC put forth long hours, and their work paid off without question. FCA has made a difference in our school. Our Model U.N. team has won many distinguished delegations, and our Academic Team has been state nalist all four years. For me it feels as if just yesterday I was dropped off in front of Wakulla High School for the rst time in 2009. At that point we were all placing school maps in our binders, and praying we knew where we were going. Our world has changed dramatically since then, our nation has announced the withdrawal from the longest war in our history, but we are still getting out of this recession. Our class, too, has changed. I have made connections with teachers whose influence on me will last a lifetime. I have made friends that will be irreplaceable. We all have grown closer together, and have made bonds that will stand the test of time. My hope is as a class, over the last four years we have developed and matured into adults. How we look back at the memories weve made on this campus will differ for each individual here tonight, but we all should be proud of what we have accomplished. In just a few moments we will have our diplomas in our hands, and our caps will be in the air. Regardless of the path each individual here tonight has taken, take pride, youve earned it. Some of us remember those nights out; others similar to me remember football practices until 6:30, and then hitting the books. Our accomplishments in high school will not be forgotten. This diploma represents the times where we fought to pass that test, the moments where we raced to the pizza line in hopes to get there before they ran out; but most importantly, the War Eagle family we are of cially a part of. No matter what we do from here, we all share one thing, the diplomas that will tie us together in a bond that we could never break. Each person here today is about to start their own new path. Some of us are going to continue our education at a post-secondary institution; others will be entering the workforce. I know guys who are ying out tonight to begin the next phase of their life, and others who will be leaving shortly thereafter. Whether you will be becoming a doctor, an engineer, a politician, or a sherman, you have an opportunity to make a difference in your own sector of society. Some of us here tonight are scared for the challenges ahead, and others wish they could just get out of here as quickly as they can. Regardless of where each of us are about to go, we are a member of the same body, the Wakulla High School class of 2013. Moving forth into tomorrow each of us will have an opportunity to make a difference. My goal in life is to leave wherever Ive been, better than it was before I arrived. If everyone here does just that, we the class of 2013, can change this world for the better. Whether you are part of the brave few who will serve our nation, or innovating new forms of energy, do the best you can, and like we say in football: leave it all on the eld. Alas, one day you will look in the mirror and see your reflection; make sure you can look at that mirror with pride. Life is not guaranteed to any of us tomorrow, and it is vital that you put forth the effort on a daily basis that you can be proud of. My friend is in a ght against cancer, with a family to support. He understands the obstacles that lie before him, but they do not slow him down. Your legacy will be determined not on how you act in times of triumph, but in times of struggle. Each of us here can be proud of the race we ran to this point, but the rest of the marathon is left to run. Again I would like to speak for my class in appreciation for our teachers, parents, administrators, school board, and superintendent for providing us with an unparalleled school system in which we can all be proud. Regardless of whether next fall you will be a Seminole, a Gator, an Eagle, or an Argonaut, we are all War Eagles, and that we will be forever. Go forth class of 2013, and make a difference. Thank You and God Bless!SPECIAL TO THE NEWSJonathan Chunn gives his speech during the graduation ceremony.

By ALAN ROSS Jimmie Johnson relentlessly clawed his way back toward the front for a fourth time Sunday at Michigan, but his charge to overtake Greg Biffle failed when a right front tire blew with three laps to go, handing the Roush Fenway driver the Quicken Loans 400, Bif es rst Cup victory of the season. The rst quarter of the 200-lap race around Michigan International Speedways 2.0-mile oval was a revolving door up front. But on Lap 64, Jimmie Johnson, who had started 36th, took over the top spot, leading a Hendrick Motorsports contingent of Kasey Kahne and Dale Earnhardt Jr. into the top ve. Though he lost the lead on a restart following the fth caution in fact, dropping all the way to 12th Johnson, by the races midpoint, had caught back up to his HMS buddies then running 1 and 2, Kahne looking especially solid. Earlier the trios fourth mate, Jeff Gordon, endured the ignominy of being the rst car to exit the race, when the 24 was collected on Lap 6 by backmarker Bobby Lebonte after the latter spun out. But then, suddenly, Kahne was out, blowing a right front tire before careening into the outside wall and catching re. For the second time in the race, with 87 laps to go, Dale Jr. took the front, beating the troops off pit road following the sixth caution brought out by Kahne. He then aced Matt Kenseth on the restart. Just as Earnhardt fans everywhere were rejoicing and universally aghast at the outright ownership that Earnhardt seems to hold over MIS, the 88 slowed, a cylinder lost. You could almost feel the wind taken from the races sails at that point. Earnhardts blown engine brought out a caution, his lead quickly passing through Johnson and Joey Logano, before Carl Edwards settled things on the restart. Edwards held the lead to the three-quarter pole, surrendering to Greg Bif- es inside pass with 50 laps to go. As it turned out, that would be the move of the race, aided by a huge break Bif e caught when the yellow came out during his green- ag pit stop. The untimely yellow could have sent Biffle to the rear of the leadlappers, perhaps even put him a lap down, but officials quickly declared his position had not been jeopardizeda race turner, for sure, for the 16. Johnson, now on his fourth assault to the front, caught Harvick for second with nine laps to go before setting his sights on Bif e. But the 48s nal charge came up just short when, with three laps left, Johnson rolled off line, having blown a tire. With the win, Biffle notched his 19th Cup victory a milestone as it turns out, in that it also gained the Ford Motor Company its 1,000th NASCAR victory. It was also the second time that Bif e had recorded back-to-back wins at this race, having won in 2004 and at MIS in addition to last year. And for the rst time in eight years (Sonoma, 2005), all four hard-luck Hendricks cars nished outside the Top 25, a rarity indeed. Despite the 28th-place nish, Johnson still maintains a 31-point lead over Edwards in the points race, as the series heads to Sonomas road circuit this Sunday. MILWAUKEE INDYFEST: On Lap 181, race leader Takuma Sato lost it, skidding up into the marbles but somehow mirculaously retaining the race lead over Helio Castroneves, before defending champion Ryan HunterReay passed them both by Lap 197 and never looked back. It was the third career win at Milwaukee for Hunter-Reay and second in a row at the facility (2004, 2012). Series points leader Castroneves lifted his lead over Hunter-Reay to 16.Read Alan Ross article on the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013 in Lindys Sports 2013 Pro Football Preview at newsstands everywhere.

From FWC NewsThis report represents some cases the FWC handled recently in the Northwest Region, but it does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement. WAKULLA COUNTY: During the Memorial Day weekend, Of cer Charlie Mallow made one BUI arrest, one DUI arrest, three underage alcohol arrests, and issued four UBCs while working core mission activities. LEON COUNTY: Officer Greg Louque was dispatched to a complaint regarding a subject keeping small alligators in an ice chest behind his residence. Of cer Louque arrived at the residence and made contact with two subjects who tried to hide six hatchling alligators. A third subject was involved with possession of the hatchlings. Of cer Charles Higman assisted with the investigation. Two citations and one warning were issued for possession of six alligator hatchlings. FRANKLIN COUNTY: FWC of cers and deputies with the Franklin County Sheriffs Office conducted an operational detail for the 2013 White Trash Bash held on Memorial Day weekend. The detail was designed to protect Floridas boating public through enhanced boating safety patrol, increase voluntary compliance from the boating public through education and enforcement of BUI laws, provide a highly visible law enforcement presence, and increase our multi-agency working relationships. During the detail, 86 vessels were boarded with 374 users being checked resulting in issuance of 24 boating safety warnings, ve citations for boating safety violations, four resource warnings, two warnings for alcoholic beverages in a state park, and two BUI arrests were made. While on patrol in the Tates Hell Wildlife Management Area, Of cer Terry Martin heard dogs running in the Apalachicola WMA. Of cer Martin responded to the area and located an individual who was actively running dogs. The individual was cited for allowing dogs to pursue wildlife during the closed season, driving with a revoked drivers license, and warned for not having a valid hunting license. JEFFERSON / LEON COUNTY: On Memorial Day weekend, officers conducted and coordinated patrols on the lakes and rivers, which resulted in 98 warnings and 14 citations being issued. Some of the more notable violations included jug shing on Lake Talquin, discovered by Of cer Greg Louque and Of cer Stefanie Wilcox who found minors in possession of alcohol. GADSDEN COUNTY: Of cers Ben Johnson and Matt Bell have been working complaints of illegal shing in the Little River area of Lake Talquin. They cited three men in separate incidents involving the taking of freshwater game sh by illegal method and possession of undersized speckled perch. OKALOOSA COUNTY: Lieutenants Philip Glover and Mark Hollinhead, along with Investigator J.W. Armstrong, requested the assistance of Of cer Alan Kirchinger, Reserve Officer Jeff Hahr, and Capt. Mary Sumner with the recovery of a kayak and an uncooperative, extremely intoxicated female in the Crab Island area. Glover, Hollinhead and Armstrong successfully recovered the kayak in the swift current. The officers located the female walking away from the scene in chest deep water, occasionally swimming. She was shouting obscenities and making threats of physical harm to every vessel she came in contact with. After determining the female was not a passenger on any vessel or with any remaining party on the sandbar, the officers attempted to persuade her to come aboard the patrol vessel. She refused to cooperate, stating she wanted to kill others and herself. She then ventured into deeper swift waters. The officers quickly maneuvered their patrol vessels to cut off her avenue of escape and continued to encourage her to come to the patrol vessel. She ventured even further into deeper swift current and was in water over her head. Captain Sumner observed the female go under for a second time. Of cer Kirchinger and Reserve Of cer Hahr were able to grab onto the female when she resurfaced. Her weight made it extremely dif cult to pull her aboard the patrol vessel. Armstrong entered the water and physically pushed the female, while Officers Kirchinger and Hahr assisted with pulling her into the patrol vessel. As soon as she was onboard, she immediately became physically combative, yelled profanities, and continued to state she was going to kill everyone and she wanted to die. Hollinhead boarded the patrol vessel to assist with controlling her violent resistance. Capt. Sumner proceeded to the USCG Destin Station and requested EMS to meet them at the dock. Due to the females continued physical resistance and combative manner, she was strapped to a backboard and lifted from the patrol vessel where she was delivered to awaiting EMS personnel and transported to the Ft. Walton Medical Center under the Baker Act www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 Page 11Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWell, I hope you had a nice Fathers Day and if you were able to sh in the Big Bend Classic you had a great time whether you won or not.

Shane returned from Afghanistan in November and is in the Army Reserves. Every month he drives to Ft. Knox, Ky., for training. When you take kids shing you never know if you are gonna have to teach them to cast or have to cast for them. These guys were amazing. They could all cast and all were very good shermen. I think we had about 19 trout, two Spanish and eight or nine ounder. This was my rst trip for Fishing for the Brave but not my last. Shane was so appreciative and hopefully he and his boys had a good time. Well, most of the tournaments are over until July 20 when C-Quarters will hold its 9th annual youth fishing tournament, which is open to all kids 16 and younger. Then on Aug. 3 and 4 will be the 10th annual King sh Shootout, with all proceeds going to the Leukemia Research Foundation. Scallop season opens on July 1. Bucky at Shell Island Fish Camp said he has talked to several folks that have seen them both in close and out on the big sandbar out from the mouth of the St. Marks River. The FWC usually does a report but as of yesterday had not been posted on their website. We havent had much rain so it should again be a banner year. Lets hope so. Remember to know your limits, wear that sunscreen and leave a oat plan. Good luck and good shing! From The DockBY CAPT.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 www.thewakullanews.coma peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiences Underground storm driven tidal bore. Tropical storm rain that falls to our north, in Georgia and Alabama, comes down hill and often underground to us in North Florida. Our rivers to the east, such as the Suwannee and Santa Fe, typically ll up and back ow into local springs. This ushing event recharges the local aquifer with valuable water and nutrients for the cave animals. Our early season Tropical Storm Andrea recently brought 50 mph winds and a sea surge of around 3 feet, but more importantly, plenty of rain. Wakulla received 2.5 inches of rain, with more falling to our north. Much of that rain went right into the ground locally, but that our north is now ooding dive sites at Madison Blue Springs, and Little River to our east. When Tropical Storm Debby visited us last year in June we had a ooding event in Wakulla County, recording nearly 29 inches of rain falling in the county over two days. The winds were 55 mph with a sea surge of 2 to 4.5 feet. While ooding occurred during the storm, there was a post-storm groundwater level rise of an estimated 4-plus feet at my house days after the storm passed. This poststorm ooding caused me more damage that the rain during the storm! Rain that falls must also make it to the sea, creating a second ooding event. Now imagine a storm that drops a whole lot of water just to the north of Wakulla County (as it skirts our coastline) followed by another storm hitting a week later running to the south of Wakulla sending its surge northward. The effect of the high water table load going south and the surge pushing north on the coast would be disastrous. Such may have been the case, we are told by a Wakulla County landowner, in the summer of 2008. Tropical Storm Fay cut across North Florida in late August 2008, dropping nearly 28 inches of water in Thomasville Ga., just to our north, before making landfall in Carrabelle (fortunately with a low surge of 1 foot). Hurricane Gustav however, arrived in the Gulf of Mexico one week later making landfall in Louisiana on Sept. 1 as a category 2 storm with an effective radius of 200 miles towards the east into our coastal arena. While we did not see the 10 foot surge reported in Louisiana, coupled with our high September tides, and the prevailing high ground water levels headed for the Gulf, water very likely backed up in our underground caves. Today the water in his sinkhole resides at 30+ feet below ground level. Today his sinkhole has a tidal rise and fall that is six hours behind that of the Gulf of Mexico. He once had a beautiful bridge that spanned this feature. He tells a fascinating story of groundwater during Hurricane Gustav, suddenly rising over the banks of his sinkhole, washing away the bridge and docks and ooding his property. What a fascinating research site this could become, to better understand the performance of our groundwater in Wakulla County.

We sincerely hope that every one enjoyed and celebrated the fathers and father gures in your life this past weekend! When talking to our Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon about important information to share with you all this week, he thought it would be good to talk about the Founding Fathers of the United States Coast Guard given it was Fathers Day. It has long been believed that the Revenue Marine, signed into law on Aug. 4, 1790 by Congress under the direction of Secretary of the Treasurery Alexander Hamilton, was the beginning for what is currently the U.S. Coast Guard. However, the discovery of letters between Hamilton and Col. Sharp Delaney, a Customs Collector at the time, bring the beginning into question. Prior to the of cial formation by Congress, Col. Delaney was using a eet based out of Philadelphia, and monitoring up to Newcastle, Conn. In several letters between Hamilton and Delaney, they were discussing using ships to enforce new customs laws and thwart smuggling, piracy and evasion of customs. However, several miscommunications and other unforeseen circumstances, led Delaney to use a barge with sails to patrol the Delaware River without the consent or endorsement of Hamilton. Once the two discussed the success Delaney had made with the single vessel, the controversy was born. Although it was never formally established as an entity, Delaney, his of cers and crews were collecting duties owed to the Federal Government as the future Revenue Marines would do. Which came rst, the Colonel or the Revenue Marines? The of cial historian for the Coast Guard does not recognize Delaneys efforts as a precursor to the Coast Guard, but rather an administrative tool not a member of the of cial eet of rst cutters. If you would like to read more about this ongoing debate, you can access information at http://www.navalhistory. org/2011/08/04/founders-of-the-u-s-coast-guard.

As Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident. Be a beacon for safe boating and be prepared!Coast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg Stanton From FWC News With people out enjoying the warmer weather, it is important to remember to stay safe and that goes for both on and in the water. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reminds boaters and divers of the importance of using a divers-down ag. Divers-down ags are not only required by law, but they are necessary to stay safe, particularly in areas of high boat traf c, said Major Bruce Cooper, commander for the FWCs Northwest Region. Divers-down ags help both divers and boaters. Divers use them to notify boaters that they are in the water. Boat operators see the ags and know to steer clear. The Emerald Coast is a beautiful spot to snorkel and dive to see dolphins and other marine life in their natural environment, Cooper said. Everyone just needs to remember what to do to keep themselves and others safe. Boaters should be particularly vigilant of swimmers and snorkelers in and around these dolphin-viewing areas. Divers must do their part by ensuring the ag is properly displayed when divers are in the water, and removed when they exit the water. Boaters need to be aware at all times, scanning the water for dive ags. The speci c regulations regarding divers-down ags are as follows: Divers-down flags displayed on vessels must be at least 20 inches by 24 inches, and a stiffener is required to keep the ag unfurled. Dive ags carried on oats must be at least 12 inches by 12 inches. Also, divers-down flags on vessels must be displayed above the vessels highest point so that the ags visibility is not obstructed in any direction. Divers must make reasonable efforts to stay within 300 feet of a diversdown ag on open waters and within 100 feet of a ag within rivers, inlets or navigation channels. Vessel operators must make a reasonable effort to maintain a distance of at least 300 feet from divers-down flags on open waters and at least 100 feet from ags on rivers, inlets or navigation channels. Vessels approaching divers-down ags closer than 300 feet in open water and 100 feet in rivers, inlets and navigation channels must slow to idle speed. When divers are out of the water, a dive ag must not be displayed. To view a video about divers-down flags, visit YouTube.com/MyFWCvideos.

Slaymaker and Logan FIsher pose with the boat they built at Rock Landing in Panacea on Saturday, June 15. By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsThe Big Bend Maritime Center in Panacea held a boat building day camp for youth June 10-14. Volunteer Roger Pinholster, a retired educator, taught six boys, ages 10 to 13, how to use tools, read plans and parse together a wooden boat from scratch in ve days. The boys learned how to use modern tools such as electric sanders, drills, and a chop saw, as well as old tools such as planes, chisels and hand drills. In addition to building a boat, the boys also learned how to throw a cast net, visited the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab and had a water balloon ght. The campers who attended the camp were 13-yearold Coleson Davis and Hayden Martin, 12-year-old Alex Thompson and Logan Fisher, and 10-year-old Conner Fisher and A.J. Slaymaker. On Saturday, June 15, parents were invited to watch the boat launch. The boys put the nishing touches on the boat then hauled it to Rock Landing boat ramp for the maiden voyage. They poured champagne over the bow and took turns rowing the small craft. The boys named their boat Chum Bucket from the popular childrens cartoon, Spongebob Squarepants. The camp will be held again next summer and there are plans to hold a boat building camp this fall for families. For more information about the BBMC, go to www. oridaforesight.org.

By JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 13 Two of Floridas top courts Thursday ruled against the tobacco industry in cases involving the deaths of smokers, including an appeals court upholding a $20 million punitive-damages judgment against R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. The punitive-damages case, decided by the 1st District Court of Appeal, stemmed from the 1995 death of Frank Townsend, an Ocala man who smoked the companys cigarettes and developed lung cancer. Townsends widow, Lyantie, filed a lawsuit against R.J. Reynolds --one of thousands of tobacco-related cases bouncing through the states court system. Thursdays ruling was the second time the Tallahassee-based appeals court has ruled on the amount of punitive damages that could be awarded to Townsends widow. Last year, judges said a $40.8 million punitivedamages award was excessive and ordered that the case be sent back to an Alachua County court, where it was originally heard, to determine a lower amount. A circuit judge set the amount at $20 million, which prompted R.J. Reynolds to appeal again on a number of grounds, including whether it was entitled to a new trial on the damages and whether the $20 million was excessive. But the appeals court rejected those arguments. The jury in the case also awarded $10.8 million in separate damages to compensate Townsends widow for such issues as pain and suffering and loss of consortium. That total was reduced to $5.5 million because it was determined that Frank Townsend was 49 percent at fault for his death and R.J. Reynolds was 51 percent at fault. The Townsend case is part of a barrage of lawsuits against tobacco companies stemming from a 2006 Florida Supreme Court decision. That decision determined such lawsuits have to be heard individually instead of as a class action, but it also established critical ndings about the health dangers of smoking and misrepresentation by cigarette makers ndings that have bolstered the cases, known in the legal world as Engle progeny cases. Meanwhile Thursday, the state Supreme Court sided in a Miami-Dade County case with Karen Capone, the widow of Frank Capone, a longtime smoker who died in July 2006 after ling a personal-injury lawsuit against cigarette maker Philip Morris USA. The dispute focused on whether Karen Capone should be able to amend the case and pursue a wrongful-death claim. Philip Morris contended that the case needed to be dismissed and that a new wrongful-death lawsuit would have to be led. But justices, in a 5-2 decision, sided with Capone. When an injured plaintiff in a personal injury action dies, it is both necessary and proper for the personal representative of the decedents estate to be named a party in the pending action so that a survival damages claim, a wrongful death claim, or both, may continue to be pursued, Justice R. Fred Lewis wrote in the majority opinion. Lewis was joined by justices Barbara Pariente, Peggy Quince, Jorge Labarga and James E.C. Perry. Chief Justice Ricky Polston and Justice Charles Canady dissented. Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comOn June 12, Deputy Alan Middlebrooks was on patrol on Old Shell Point Road when he observed stop signs were missing. All of the signs on the road were missing from Highway 267 to Highway 61. Side streets signs remained in the ground. The missing signs were observed thrown over a fence line. The county road and bridge department was noti ed to replace the signs. Lt. Sherrell Morrison also investigated. In other activity reported by the sheriffs of ce this week: JUNE 7 Lt. Sherrell Morrison conducted a Crawfordville traf c stop for speeding and discovered marijuana inside the vehicle. The passenger allegedly admitted the marijuana was his and Jesse Raymond Zurlino, 19, of Atlanta was issued a notice to appear in court for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. The driver, Sommers McCall Coleman, 18, of Hahira, Ga. was issued a traf c citation for unlawful speed as he was driving 57 mph in a 35 mph zone. Nicholas Ryan Sluis, 34, of Crawfordville was allegedly observed attempting to dispense gasoline from a closed business. Deputy Alan Middlebrooks investigated and discovered that the driver did not have a valid driver license. The deputy also determined that the tag was not attached to the correct vehicle and drug paraphernalia was discovered inside the vehicle. Sluis was charged with possession of narcotic equipment, operating a motor vehicle while license was suspended or revoked with knowledge and attached tag not assigned. Debra Compton of Crawfordville reported a fraud. Someone opened a satellite network account using the victims personal information. The victim discovered that there was an unpaid balance of $805 from Ocala. Sgt. Danny Harrell investigated. John Delgato of Crawfordville reported a criminal mischief to a residential subdivision gate. The chain of the gate was broken during the night. Damage was estimated under $200.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 Page 15ABy JIM TURNER and JIM SAUNDERSTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 14 As Gov. Rick Scott jetted off to France on Friday, he hoped to showcase Floridas aviation and aerospace industries and, of course, bring back some new jobs. But before the trade mission even started, Scott dropped a couple of unrelated bombshells. He announced Thursday that the Internet retailer Amazon could create 3,000 jobs in the state. And Friday morning, he said federal of cials had approved a long-debated overhaul of Floridas Medicaid system. Both announcements could be considered victories for Scott, though he immediately started catching grief about how Amazon building in the state would lead to the companys Florida customers starting to have to pay sales taxes on their purchases. Regardless of that grief, 3,000 jobs are, well, 3,000 jobs. And for a governor who has pinned much of his re-election bid on creating jobs, 3,000 is a big number. The Medicaid overhaul, which involves moving beneficiaries statewide into HMOs and other managed-care plans, has long been a priority of Scott and Republican legislative leaders. It remains to be seen whether voters will attach any importance to the overhaul, but Scott, who made his riches in the health-care industry, sees managed care as the way to improve the massive Medicaid program. AMAZON BACK FROM THE DEAD A month ago, it appeared that Floridas hopes of landing at least one Amazon warehouse had been dashed because of disagreement about when the retailer would have to start collecting state sales taxes. Taxation of Internet sales is a complicated and controversial issue. But the bottom line is that Amazon doesnt currently collect sales taxes from Florida customers but likely would have to do so if it had a physical presence in the state, such as a warehouse. Thats why Scotts announcement Thursday that a deal was in the works was a surprise. And it quickly became apparent that community leaders in various parts of Florida would welcome the jobs and millions of dollars in construction spending that Amazon could deliver. Hillsborough County commissioners next week are set to discuss providing local incentives for an Amazon facility, while economic development leaders across the Interstate 4 corridor and in northeast Florida also could be developing pitches. The issue is still a work in progress between Amazon and the states economic-development arm, Enterprise Florida, which will work out the final details for any potential incentives and selection of possible distributionwarehouse locations. But optimism has at least returned to Winter Haven, which hopes this weeks developments will revive previous discussions about building a warehouse near where a new CSX rail terminal is going up. We happen to have this piece of land here that is ideal for intermodal, if that plays for Amazon, I think that would be ideal for them, said Winter Haven Economic Development Council President Ingram Leedy. But I think if a dart hit in Central Florida, its ripple across all our communities would be great for all of us. Where Amazon builds depends upon economic incentives, but also the e-commerce giants supply-chain needs. That could mean locating in close proximity to major highways, rail lines and ports. Ty Rogers, a spokesman for Amazon, responded in an email Friday that the company had no comment regarding potential locations or details beyond the Thursday release from the governors of- ce. That release outlined plans to create more than 3,000 jobs and spend more than $300 million in investments in Florida. Leedy said Amazons new same-day delivery strategy is driving the need to strategically locate its regional hubs, which should be encouraging for both the Jacksonville region and the I-4 corridor. The Winter Haven plans were halted when the state rebuffed efforts by Seattle-based Amazon to delay collection of state sales taxes. The release from Scotts of ce on Thursday said Amazon would begin collecting Florida sales tax at such time as it is required under current Florida law. The Orlando Sentinel reported that the company intends to build a pair of one-million-square-foot ful llment centers that would include half the envisioned 3,000 jobs. One of the centers could be located along Interstate 75 in Ruskin, on the east side of Tampa Bay. The Hillsborough County Commission will be asked to approve a package for Amazon next Wednesday that would include $225,000 tied to the state Quali ed Target Industries Tax Refund Program. Also, the commission would agree to hold a public hearing in July on providing $6.4 million in property-tax exemptions over seven years. Amazon would be required to create 375 new, higher-wage jobs in return for the $225,000 from Hillsboroughs Countywide and Unincorporated Area Economic Development Activity Funds, while the property tax exemptions would require the company to make a $200 million capital investment and create at least 75 well-paying jobs. MAJOR CHANGES COMING TO MEDICAID Republican lawmakers have routinely vilified Medicaid in recent years because of its increasing costs and what they have described as lackluster care. But with the announcement Friday that the Obama administration had signed off on moving almost all Medicaid bene ciaries into managedcare plans, Republicans will have the opportunity to see whether their solution for xing Medicaid will work. Scott and the Republican-controlled Legislature approved the controversial change in 2011, and it took nearly two years to nalize the details of what is known as a waiver with the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Scott touted the approval as a way to improve care. lorida is leading the nation in improving cost, quality and access in the Medicaid program, Scott said in a prepared statement. CMS final approval of our Medicaid managed care waiver is a huge win for Florida families because it will improve the coordination of care throughout the Medicaid system. Healthcare providers can now more effectively manage chronic conditions and work with families to provide preventative treatments. Florida CHAIN, a patient-advocacy group that has been among the mostvocal critics of the change, said the federal government included safeguards in its approval but that the managed-care program will have to be watched closely. It pointed, in part, to controversies about a Medicaid managed-care pilot program that began in 2006 and 2007 in Broward, Duval, Clay, Baker and Nassau counties. Despite these federal safeguards, the focus now shifts to the state and its efforts to implement this program that will affect access to care for millions of patients in all 67 counties, a Florida CHAIN statement said. The countless reports of disrupted, delayed and denied care streaming in from the original ve counties are still very fresh in the minds of all stakeholders. HILL BRINGS CONSERVATIVE MESSAGE TO TALLAHASSEECount Mike Hill among the people who like the direction Scott and Republican legislative leaders are moving the state. He wants to reduce the size of government, lower taxes and scale back regulations. And after winning a special election Tuesday to replace the late Rep. Clay Ford in a Panhandle district, Hill will be able to show his support on the House oor. Hill, a Pensacola insurance agent, easily defeated Democrat Jeremy Lau in the special election in House District 2, which includes voters in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. When he takes his seat, Hill will become the only black Republican in the Legislature. But Hill attributed his win to conservative views that he shares with voters in the GOPdominated district. Its simply a message that resonates in this conservative part of Florida, Hill said. STORY OF THE WEEK: The federal government gave nal approval to a proposal to require that Medicaid bene ciaries statewide enroll in managed-care plans, an idea that Gov. Rick Scott and Republican lawmakers have pursued for two years. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Well, three things are certain in Panhandle politics: The sun rises in the east, it sets in the west, and the most conservative candidate wins. --Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, in discussing his planned 2016 Senate bid.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Scott blasts off to FranceBy DAVID WHITE Last week, about 250 wine bloggers gathered in Penticton, a small city in British Columbia, Canada, for the sixth annual North American Wine Bloggers Conference. That so many wine enthusiasts would travel to a city ve hours east of Vancouver isnt surprising. Held in a different winemaking region each year, the annual conference brings together bloggers from across the world to meet one another, share tips and tricks, and learn from industry leaders. What is surprising, though, is just how mature this group has become. What started as a small collection of amateur wine journalists embracing a new form of communication has evolved into a group of writers thats virtually indistinguishable from the conventional wine media. The blogosphere has been trending in this direction for quite some time. Tom Wark, a wine industry publicist who helped start the annual bloggers conference -and who also runs the popular wine blog Fermentation (fermentationwineblog.com) -wrote about this development two years ago. The wine blog is now fully integrated into the world of wine writing, he explained. If anything of signi cance distinguishes wine bloggers from traditional wine publishing, it is [that] wine bloggers publish in a now recognizable and predictable diarist format, and that they are largely unpaid. Beyond these two factors, little separates the blogged wine writing from the traditional or commercial wine writing. Indeed, leading wine bloggers now contribute regularly to traditional media outlets and established print critics feel obligated to write online. Consider Alder Yarrow, the founder and editor of Vinography.com, an in uential wine blog that launched nearly ten years ago. Hes on the editorial board for Sommelier Journal, a popular trade publication, and a columnist for Jancis Robinsons Purple Pages. Or look at Joe Roberts, who founded 1WineDude.com in 2007 to make clear that learning to appreciate wine does not have to be daunting, expensive, or reserved for some strange elite with magical noses. In 2012, he secured a regular writing gig with Playboy.com. The list goes on. Kyle Schlachter, author of ColoradoWinePress.com, has contributed to Wine Spectator and Decanter, two of the worlds most popular wine publications. Tyler Colman, a lecturer at New York University who writes DrVino.com, has been published in Food & Wine, the New York Times, and countless other outlets. Conversely, established print writers have turned to the web. Few oenophiles had heard of Steve Heimoff, the West Coast Editor for Wine Enthusiast, until he launched his eponymous blog in the spring of 2008. This past February, Antonio Galloni, a top critic for Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, left his job to start an online enterprise. Wine blogs havent replaced traditional outlets, of course. Publications like Decanter and The World of Fine Wine remain tremendously important. Hyper-specialized outlets like Allen Meadows Burghound and Peter Liems Champagne Guide offer material that simply cant be found for free. Obviously, wine blogs arent created equal. Today, there are more than 1,500 active wine blogs -while many are worth visiting, few have real reach. But the blogosphere has grown up -and more and more blogs are worth following. Those who take the craft seriously recognize that if they desire relevance, they have to create content thats interesting, engaging, and frequent. Just look at Elaine Browns WakawakaWineReviews.com, a site that launched in the fall of 2011. Elaine generates a herculean amount of material, and everything she writes is a pleasure to read. Plus, her passion for wine comes through in all her work. This is something every writer strives for, but few actually pull off. In the newest issue of Sommelier Journal, the editor, David Vogels, surveys the blogosphere in his opening essay. [Wine] blogging has moved well beyond its formative stage, he writes. You have to be particularly good writer . or a very funny one . to be relevant as a diarist to anyone beyond your immediate friends and family. Fortunately, todays blogosphere has plenty of good writers -and quite a few funny ones, as well. 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). WHITES WINESWine blogging grows up -Janet
Imitation is the sincerest of attery, wrote Charles Caleb Colton. Colton was a sometimes cleric, essayist, wine merchant and gambler who bounced around Europe and North America during the early 19th century. It is likely many of his nancial lenders hoped the public would not imitate his borrowing practices. Aside from his few literary works and the catchy phrase above, he was most noted for running up debts then leaving for parts unknown. Imitations are not looked upon kindly when lazy students, or journalist for that matter, complete an assignment by borrowing blocks of text. Plagiarism is a unking and ring offence with career-ending potential. The concepts of imitation and mimicry date back to the earliest written records of ancient Greece. The philosopher Plato used mimicry to de ne beauty and truth, and as a contrast to the negative aspects of life. For the denizens of Wakulla Countys untamed regions, mimicry is a form of imitation which assures the survival of some. Survival always beats the alternative. Insects are particularly effective at using several forms of mimicry to survive and reproduce in a very hostile environment where big hungry creatures always are on the prowl for their next meal. Eyes and disguise are the top tactics for continuation of the species. Multiple eyes on the bugs face are common in the world of Wakulla Countys insects. Large eye-like spots on the rear of the bug are an effective form of defensive mimicry used by several caterpillars locally. The saddleback caterpillar is a good example of how this deception is carried out locally. There are two color-coordinated eye-like spots on the rump of this caterpillar. These spots are exponentially larger than the saddlebacks real eyes which are barely visible without the aid of magni cation. An approaching predator will quickly notice the blankly staring spots and likely recall the last encounter with this inappropriately called creature. It is worth noting the saddleback caterpillar has more defensive weapons systems than an Ageis missile cruiser. The novice predator that attempts to dine on this colorful plump morsel will always remember the experience. In addition to insects and caterpillars, some spiders have eye-spots on their thorax. Depending on the circumstances, the hunter can easily become the hunted. Another mimicry tactic is camouflage, the ability to blend into the background and avoid detection. Millions, if not billions, of dollars of hunting clothing is sold annually to provide deer and turkey hunters the perceived advantage over their potential trophy animal. Moths are quite adept at using this technique to hide in plain sight. In the wild they almost always rest or lay eggs on surfaces which closely resemble their color scheme. The last form of mimicry occasionally seen in Wakulla County is the lure. This method attracts the prey to its demise. A prime example is employed by young water moccasins which have a sulfur-yellow tipped tail. The tail is shaken to resemble a wounded insect as the snake hides in the leaf litter. The unwitting victim is surprised, no doubt, to discover its status as a menu item.

By JENNY ODOM Special to The NewsThe local artist and businessman has striking blue eyes, a crop of shoulder-length silver hair and a solid chiseled chin. He shuf es through his large meticulously designed home wearing Italian leather sandals and a soft indigo shirt. The house he shares with his wife, Janise, and his sons Sean and Ian, is proudly filled with his artwork depicting Floridas Gulf Coast wilderness. The large oil paintings are rich with detail and depth, and with every painting he creates he writes a narrative. Every painting has a story, he says. A raconteur with a quick southern drawl, Padgett was born and raised in Perry. He found his creative side and artistic talent when his parents divorced at a young age. At 13, hed retreat to his room, putting on his headphones to play music by Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, and he would draw for hours escaping into his own world. In middle school, one of Padgetts teachers saw a talent she had not seen in other students. She took the initiative to introduce Padgett to a friend, Jules Rommand Bacot, an art professor from the University of Georgia. With interest, Bacot began teaching technique to the young budding artist and a friendship developed. Jules was my friend for 30 years, until the day he died, said Padgett. He gave me a lot of con dence and he was an excellent teacher. He wanders off into another room in the house and brings back a small watercolor painting by Bacot. I have quite a few of his paintings. He was a huge inspiration to me as a young artist, teaching me technique at a very young age, Padgett reminisces. But he was my friend for life. Bacot encouraged the young artist to take classes and to learn as much about the craft of painting as he could. By the time Padgett entered Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, on a full scholarship, he had taken years of courses and developed into a skilled artist. Padgett saunters into the dining room, which is painted a deep crimson, and pulls an ornately framed canvas from the wall. He sets it on the buffet. It is a painting of a man throwing a cast net at Yates Creek in Taylor County. This guy came all the way from Jacksonville to fish at Yates Creek, Padgett recalls. I asked him if it was okay to take his photograph, and he said yes. I started taking pictures with my camera and he must have thrown it for me 10 times. He was so cooperative. I never even got his name, he says, but moves on to tell more about this landscape painting and the rich golden colors that lled the day he met the sherman. In his early 20s, and fresh out of art school Padgett sent his resume to Busch Entertainment, owner of SeaWorld and Busch Gardens. I was pretty sure of myself. I had a lot of con dence in my work, says Padgett.When he was hired by Busch, he thought hed hit the big time art biz. However, as he went through orientation for his new job, he was given a set of khakis and was sent out into the blistering summer parking lot to be an attendant. I was really crushed. But then I would nd out later that everybody at Busch started out their career with parking cars. Even the son of the president started out this way, he says with a smile. Not long after that sweltering summer of parking cars, Padgett began to use the talent he was hired to do, working in the art department. Padgett explains that he made a name for himself in Florida working for Busch Entertainment, painting large scale murals for roller coaster rides and other attractions at the amusement parks they owned. Eventually he left Busch to start his own business, Art-FX Inc. a design and mural company, and he began to make a name for himself outside the sunshine state. Ive never really advertised. My work has always just come to me by word of mouth, says Padgett about his successful business of 26 years. Janise is a native of Fort Walton Beach and has an extensive background in retail sales and handles business details, PR, and the website for their company. The company creates interiors for laser tag arenas, miniature golf courses, amusement parks, museums and exhibits. They also create backdrops for theatrical productions, murals for restaurants, casinos and private residences. Keith travels the globe to direct the creation, design and installation of paintings and sets. His work has taken him to United Arab Emirates, Azerbaijan, Russia, France, Canada, England, and all over the United States. I have used the gift God gave me to see the world, he says humbly. Padgett has never really stopped learning, still taking classes and workshops to hone his craft when he can t them into his busy schedule. In addition to studying as much as possible about painting, he has also taught himself everything from international building code, to CAD design to wine making. When I retire, Im going to sh, hunt, paint and make wine, he says. And Im going to do it right here. Another passion, he and Janise have been bottling wine for the last few years, using their own grapes and supplementing with fruit from other local vineyards. Self-taught winemakers, they do the entire process at home, calling it Padgetti wine, a nickname Keiths dad used to call him when he was a kid. The accomplished artist discusses the fine line he draws between his commercial business which pays the bills, and his real love, plein air painting. Plein air is French for in the open air. I live here because this is the place I love, says Padgett. Someday the places I paint wont be here, or theyll be altered. Thats why I dont sell my paintings anymore. Instead, he sells prints of his work, saving the originals for his sons. He worries about the changing landscape of old Florida along the forgotten coast. Im not a tree hugger, he states. But I do want people to understand what they are losing for the sake of a dollar. Throughout the year, when hes not traveling the world working for his company, he loads up his canoe with his paints, canvas and an easel and heads for the swamps of Wakulla county. He likes to return to the same spot over and over and paint it from different angles, at different times of the year. And a glimmer of the country boy emerges as he mentions that during hunting season he also takes along his shotgun. Just in case, the man of many talents exclaims, I do like to shoot turkey, and I can cook a mean turkey breast. You can see the artwork of Keith Padgett on his Facebook page, Keith.Padgett/facebook or to learn more about his commercial work go to KeithPadgett.com. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 Page 3BKeith Padgettthe self-described good ol boy just doesnt look the part Artists of WakullaBEHIND CASTING CALL: Throwing a cast net requires strong teeth and a good sense of timing. While casting the net, you hold the lead weight in your teeth letting go at just the right time. Letting go too soon will result in a at cast, Holding on too long could result in the loss of a full set of teeth. I painted this man as he threw his net along Yates creek. A native of Jacksonville, he stumbled upon this area south of Perry and decided to see if he could catch some bait sh for use the following day.BEHIND AUCILLA SUNRISE: Once a year my friends and I try to get together and go cat shing on the Aucilla and the Econ na in and around Halfmile Rise shing being the operative word. Wed starve if we had to cook what we caught. The last cat sh we caught was on a trot-line belonging to someone else, that we checked by mistake. Located in the Aucilla Wildlife Management area. This part of the rise is only accessible by boat or hiking along the Florida National Scenic Trail. Before sunset hook and lines are attached along the banks and overhanging trees and vines, using lead weights heavy enough to hold the bait far below the surface even in swift currents. Later at night, between a good card game or two, lucky members of crew check the line while the others usually stand around a re along the bank. PHOTO BY JENNY ODOMKeith and Janise Padgett.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 20, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comThe next time you visit the beautiful St. Marks Lighthouse, go up onto the observation platform and direct your attention out toward the Gulf. Just to your left, you will see two low lying islands just beyond the salt marsh and sand ats. The island on the right is Whale Island, and the one next to it, on the left, is Mini Island. Each time I look at those islands, I cannot help recalling a very bad night a friend of mine, Jim Kerce, and I spent out there 58 years ago. I remember that night so vividly and will recount to you what happened. When I was a little fellow, during the days when my grandfather, J. Y. Gresham, was Keeper, and later, when his son, my uncle Alton Gresham, Chief Boatswains Mate, USCG, was Officer in Charge of the Lighthouse, I would look out at those two islands and wonder what it would be like to go out there and camp on one of them. My cousins Joann and Sonny Gresham told a scary story about seeing a half man, half bat, one evening near the Lighthouse, and when they screamed, it ew off in the direction of Whale Island, and seemed to have landed there. They thought maybe it lived there. They later admitted they just made up the story, but I thought it might be true and they didnt want to frighten me. So I was fascinated with Whale Island and just had to go out there. When I was about 13 years old, I talked my good friend, Jim Kerce from Tallahassee, into the idea of a camping trip to the island. It was the summer of 1955. Jim and I packed up a few things, including two steaks he had sneaked out of his parents refrigerator, loaded up my old cypress skiff boat and with my 3-horsepower Evinrude, left my daddys dock on the St. Marks River, bound for Whale Island. What a great time we were going to have! Little did we know what was in store for us. We timed it just right, as we approached the island about 2 or 3 in the afternoon, the tide was rising and there was a nice, cool breeze blowing out of the south. We had a great time swimming and exploring on Whale Island. Before the sun went down we built our campfire and cooked up those two steaks. Life was mighty good! We were having a big time just as we had planned. That southerly breeze continued to blow gently as the tide reached ood stage. We both noticed that just a little before sunset, as the tide began to turn and start falling, that breeze died down and then it became very still. We gave that very little thought until about an hour into the falling of the tide when we began to hear a very low, humming sound, at rst barely perceptible, then seemingly louder as it came closer. That sound was coming from the direction of the mud banks, salt marsh, and coastal pine forests. MOSQUITOES! Now these arent your ordinary, everyday mosquitoes, the weaklings found in the suburbs of cities and towns, which may occasionally bite and bother you a little at a family barbecue. No sir, these are their hardy country cousins. Raised on the blood of wild animals, they are a brave, strong breed that will venture out and attack you in broad daylight. Word had obviously spread among them that there was fresh human blood out there on Whale Island! Jim and I became enveloped in a steady swarm of mosquitoes and there seemed to be no escape from them. We had not brought any of that sissy mosquito repellent with us. We were real men and could handle a few mosquitoes. If we were to survive, we would have to forget our camping trip, jump in our boat, and head for home. But by now the tide had fallen just enough that our boat was stuck in the mud and the water was too shallow to oat our boat for over a hundred yards out from the island. Unless we could gure out a way to fight the mosquitoes, we might be doomed to be eaten to death by them. By now it was getting dark. We pulled together all the damp seaweed we could nd that had washed up on the beach and strung it along the beach for a distance of maybe twenty yards. We then set that seaweed on re, the dampness of it creating a large quantity of smoke. Then Jim and I started running. We kept that seaweed burning and ran up and down beside it almost all night long. There was a roll of canvas in our boat and when one or the other of us became too tired to run anymore, we took turns getting into the canvas and rolling up in it to rest. Then the other runner would shout that it was his turn to rest, and it was out of the canvas to run some more in the smoke. Finally, just about sunrise, the tide began to turn and start coming back in. With it, a slight breeze again from the south, which gave us a little relief and brought in enough water to float our boat. We had escaped death by mosquito bite and were heading for home. You can bet we were two mighty tired boys. Jim and I learned a hard lesson. Having spent so much time in that area, I should have known better, but I guess the anticipation of the fun we were going to have camping on Whale Island had an adverse effect on my judgment. I knew about the mosquitoes and about how we would not be able to move my boat from the island at low tide, but did not calculate that as I should have. Sadly, my good friend Jim Kerce has since passed away. He was the editor of a newspaper in Perry, Ga., and I was working in Virginia when he died. I miss my good friend, but for the brief time it took me to relive and write about this episode, and every time I gaze out at those islands, Jim is again my companion and we are carefree boys outwitting those mosquitoes on Whale Island!Recalling a very bad night on Whale Island Red Clay Footprints By John Roberts SPECIAL TO THE NEWSAn aerial view of the St. Marks Lighthouse.
