By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net On Monday, June 17 the YMCA Capital Region President and CEO Ray Purvis nally got the goahead from the countys commissioners to begin the process of planting a YMCA in Wakulla a motion that was barely passed with a 3-2 vote. Since June 2011, when the then-county commissioners approved the initial proposal with the YMCA, it has been an ongoing, back and forth discussion discussion that will finally turn into action. At the board meeting on June 3, discussion had ceased temporarily as Commissioner Ralph Thomas had brought to the boards attention the possibilities of establishing programs such as the 21st Century Community Learning Center. Thomas suggestions put a delay on the boards vote until commissioners could further look into the possibility. On that matter, Purvis returned to Mondays meeting with an update as to the YMCAs progress in Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Servi Servi Our 118th Year, 26th Issue Thursday, June 27, 2013 T w o S e c t i o n s Two Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents kulla County For More T h h h an A Century kulla County For More T h an A Centur y P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y R e a d D a i l y Published Weekly, Read DailynewsThe WakullaPublic Notices .................................................................Page 3A The Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Street Beat ......................................................................Page 5A Church.............................................................................Page 6A Obituaries .......................................................................Page 7A Community .....................................................................Page 8A School .............................................................................Page 9A Sports ...........................................................................Page 10A Outdoors ......................................................................Page 11A Water Ways ...................................................................Page 12A Sheriffs Report................................................................Page 13A Weekly Roundup ...........................................................Page 14A Readers Choice ballot ...................................................Page 15A Natural Wakulla ............................................................Page 16A Senior Citizens .................................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla................................................................Page 2B Health & Fitness ...............................................................Page 6B Thinking Outside the Book.................................................Page 7B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 8B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 8B Comics ...........................................................................Page 11B INDEX OBITUARIES Mary B.

Allie had begun her stay in captivity about a year ago when, while on Alligator Harbor, shermen John Trumbull and Steven Long had happened upon a struggling sea turtle and had brought her to Jack Rudloe at Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea. Trumbull recounted how they tried to tie what they at rst thought was a piece of wood to the boat thinking theyd move it so other boats wouldnt hit it. Thats when it started to move, he said. But the turtle didnt get very far. You could tell something was wrong with her. According to Michelle Gomez at Gulf Specimen. the turtle tried again and again to dive down below the waters surface, but to no avail. Whether she starved or suffocated, said Gomez, she would have died without help. The problem, they later found out, was that the turtle had a growing mass in her chest. A mass that kept her a oat and which crowded her internal organs. Rudloe commented on the cooperation and help given by the shermen.

Logo for Wakulla seafood WILLIAM SNOWDENNEW LOGO UNVEILED: Fisherman Keith Ward of Lighthouse Seafood and Ike Thomas of My Way Seafood, holding a T-shirt, as the Fresh From Wakulla seafood logo is displayed last week.Fresh From Wakulla intended to promote countys seafoodBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThere was a good sized crowd at the unveiling of the new Fresh From Wakulla seafood logo last week. A late afternoon thundershower on Thursday, June 20, created a sweltering humidity at Panaceas Rock Landing Dock, but didnt dampen the enthusiasm generated by the logo or attendees appetite for some local seafood. The logo was created with input from the Wakulla Tourist Development Council, and backed by the state, and unveiled at a ceremony hosted by the TDC and the Chamber of Commerce. County Commissioner Ralph Thomas said the logo is part of a campaign to promote Wakulla seafood and includes catching sh, cleaning sh, and cooking sh. Ike Thomas of My Way Seafood in Panacea said the logo is something that will represent Wakulla County around the state. Sherri Posey Miller said she regretted TDC Chairman David Moody was unable to attend the ceremony because of a family illness, saying he had done a lot of the work in pushing for the logo. Were looking forward to promoting and getting people down to purchase local seafood, Miller said. Notables in attendance included state Rep. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello, whose district includes Wakulla, as well as an aide from the of ce of state Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee. Local playwright and artistic director of Palaver Tree Theater Herb Donaldson had originally scheduled a welcome party to kickoff the groups planned three-day Scene in Wakulla festival, but brought his guests to the event to enjoy the seafood.

From Page 1AThis represents a major triumph, he said. It is a story of uncommon cooperation commercial sherman working sideby-side with biologists. Our hard-won relationship opens lines of communication and saves sea turtles lives. Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital owner Norm Griggs had provided veterinarian treatment during the turtles stay at GSML. According to Griggs, Allie had joined some number of other oaters or turtles unable to dive down for food and without the ability to defend themselves. In many cases, said Griggs, the predicament comes from the turtle eating something that damages their intestines. Many turtles end up dying from this occurence and indeed Allie would have it hadnt been for her rescuers. She was in bad shape when she came in, said Griggs, adding that she was severely malnourished and one of her back ns had been bitten off. Over the course of a year, Gulf Specimens reptilian resident recuperated amidst loyal visitors, gifts of blue crab from her fishermen friends and diligent care by Griggs as well as her caretaker, Keith Grumbly of Gulf Specimen all of which led to her full comeback and the reaching of her goal weight of 230 pounds. All 230 pounds of loggerhead were carried from an ATV on the beach over to the shoreline as hundreds of onlookers crowded around, trying to catch a glimpse and say goodbye. Loggerheads are one of seven species of sea turtle, ve of which nest on Floridas shores. The loggerhead is found in the Atlantic, Paci c and Indian Ocean as well as the Mediterranean Sea basically most places with warm waters. All sea turtles are protected by law. Attendees of Allies release party were surprised by the release of another sea turtle a young Kemps Ridley sea turtle that was found caught in shing line and brought to Gulf Specimen for rehabilitation and monitoring. After a short stay, the small turtle too young to determine its gender according to Rudloe was brought out in a small bucket and set on the shore as the audience watched it kick up its ippers and disappear into the waves. According to Gomez, Allies release party is an effort to promote habitat conservation and increase awareness about turtles, adding that nesting season has begun. Alligator Point Sea Turtle Patroller Bill Wargo says that between Alligator Point and Bald Point, a record-breaking 47 nests were hosted during last years nesting season. Wargo urges those in the community to keep the beaches in their natural state as the best protection for the endangered turtles is to keep their breeding habitats minimally disturbed. Also, a reminder that during this nesting season, turn lights out after dark so as to avoid what is called disorientation. Instinctively, hatchlings head toward the brightest horizon, which because of the moon, is naturally the horizon over the water. Arti cial lighting can easily lead the babies away from where they should be going, wasting precious time and making them exponentially more vulnerable to predators. Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comTurtle returned to the sea By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net Wakulla county commissioners voted unanimously to approve the designation of June 17, 2013 as Larry Tucker Day in honor of the countys master boatbuilder and longtime sherman. There to make a presentation honoring Tucker was Big Bend Maritime Center (BBMC) Executive Director Bill Lowrie together with Roger Pinholster and Commissioner Jerry Moore. Moore had brought the subject to the commissioners agenda. Wakulla has a rich history of shing and boat building and Tucker has played a major role in the success of the boat-building program at the maritime center. As Commissioner Moore wrote in his agenda proposal, There are generations of sherman and boatbuilders here, craftsmen who worked long and hard hours to plan and construct their craft. The BBMC in Panacea is dedicated to furthering the skills and traditions of that founding generation through its boat-building program and displays, thereby advancing a wider understanding and appreciation by citizens of today and tomorrow. The BBMC will honor Tucker by naming its boatbuilding facility the Larry Tucker Watercraft Center. Lowrie revealed artwork done by Clay Lovel of Spring Creek, intended for display as the watercraft centers new sign. The artwork depicts a sherman, oating in a boat near the coast, retrieving a shing net. Lowrie said that if anyone would like to learn more about old-time Florida, particularly in the Panacea area, that they should visit the maritime center where a voice box features Tuckers account of local history, along with how he learned to build boats from his uncle many years ago. The sentiment was made of cial as Moore read the proclamation aloud to a packed room. Tucker received a standing ovation.June 17, 2013 designated by county as Larry Tucker Day e Panacea boatbuilder is honored for his workLarry Tucker, Commissioner Jerry Moore, and Bill Lowrie, director of the Big Bend Maritime Center, with a sign designed by Spring Creek artist Clay Lovel for the facility to be named the Larry Tucker Watercraft Center.PHOTO BY AMANDA MAYOR AMANDA MAYORJack Rudloe in the surf to release the loggerhead and Kemps Ridley turtles.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. Questions raised about payments in sheriffs budgetestablishing a 21st CCLC in conjunction with the Y as, at the June 3 meeting, he assured the YMCAs previous experience running 21st CCLC programs. During his update Purvis said, We are committed to bringing a 21st CCLC to the YMCA, but I cant say it will absolutely take place. Purvis explained that there is a very real possibility to seek funding through grants with the help of TCC and that those conversations are already in progress. He said that his goal is to have the 21st CCLC kickoff in the summer of 2014 at the community center. I cant guarantee its success, he said of the process, but it is underway. The newly revised agreement with the YMCA states that the group will provide summer camps, a KidZone, after school programs, teen leadership development programs, a wellness center, group exercise programs, youth sports programs, adult education programs and more, as they are needed. Since the June 3 meeting, a few key changes have been made to the contract between the county and the Y. The section that stated that the $6,000 feasibility study cost should be borne equally between the two parties has been deleted. The amendment to one section states that the YMCA shall retain 25 percent of rental fees and the YMCA shall submit 75 percent of all third party rental fees to the county. In addition, the section that designated the development of a proposed independent advisory council that would make recommendations on fundraising and community activities has also been deleted. According to the contract, the YMCA will open when it reaches 350 memberships during an initial presale effort. The target kickoff date is April 1, 2014, however, there is the possibility of opening earlier if the membership goal is reached before then. With the approval of the contract terms, the next step for the YMCA is to conduct the feasibility study, which will ensure the logistical success of the YMCA in Wakulla. Such a study has been a topic of argument amongst some commissioners, although, as Purvis has explained, its only aim is to help ensure success. It aims to address such concerns as those brought up by Thomas, who feels as if our families have a set amount of discretionary income to spend. Thomas has expressed his concern about the YMCA luring clientele away from the countys already established health clubs. However, Purvis has consistently maintained that YMCAs throughout the country have coexisted fairly and successfully with such businesses throughout the programs lifetime. Purvis pointed out that 30-35 percent of the Ys revenue goes toward scholarships for children and families that may have trouble paying membership and program fees. We do not turn anyone away because of their inability to pay, Purvis iterated. To Thomas comments specifically, Purvis answered: There are limited resources in every county, and that collaboration is key. The study will aim to calculate the probability of success and will look at a slew of economical and demographically relevant factors. Then and only then, as stated in the contract, will the YMCA move further to establish a presence at the countys community center. If the results of the study prove unpromising, further progression to establish the Y in Wakulla will cease. In which case, says Commissioner Richard Harden, We have several good Plan B options to fall back on. Commissioner Howard Kessler is also for the YMCA and sees good reason for a study of feasibility. If they fail, we fail, he said about the Ys efforts. I just want to reiterate our support of the YMCA, said Tim Devlin, who serves on the community center advisory council. He pointed out that there have been improvements in the contract and that the council is comfortable with moving forward. A vote followed shortly afterwards with Commission Chairman Randy Merritt and commissioners Harden and Howard Kessler voting to move forward with the YMCA project, and commissioners Jerry Moore and Thomas voting against.From Page 3AOn-again, o -again YMCA-run center is back onCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net At the June 17 board of commissioners meeting, an item brought forward by Commissioner Dr. Howard Kessler was not well received. The item requested that the board formally request an opinion from counsel of the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office explaining how or why the disbursement of funds of approximately $100,000 from money of the 20112012 fiscal year budget was in compliance with section 215.425 of state statutes. The reason for his request, says Kessler is that, we have a duciary responsibility to obtain an answer for, the protection of the taxpayers dollars. Kessler explained that on October 31, 2012 the then-Sheriff Donnie Crum had written a letter to his employees announcing a one time cost of living adjustment. According to Kesslers proposal, this expenditure was made unilaterally without consultation with the BOCC and in an environment of scal constraint (although improving). It was done when reserves in both the WCSO and the BOCC were and still are inadequate. In a series of emails back and forth between county staff, County Attorney Heather Encinosa speci cally recommends that the WCSO provide the county with their analysis as to why the employee bonuses provided at the end of the last scal year do not violate section 215.425, Fla. Stat., which prohibits extra compensation being provided to public employees after services have been rendered or an employment contract made. In her email, Encinosa later adds that the county may consider having the general fund made whole by recouping a like amount. If the motion had moved forward, and the ndings of the actions of the former sheriff were in fact illegal, then the county would stand to gain $100,000 an amount that simply cant be ignored, says Kessler. The confusion lies in that the disbursement of funds came very near the time when the statute was put into place. Also, depending on what exactly the funds were delegated under could affect their legitimacy. According to Encinosa, her initial understanding was that the Sheriffs payout was not a cost of living increase, but just a one-time payment at the end of the year which would not be allowed under the statute. However, says Encinosa, if it was a prospective cost of living salary adjustment then the statute would likely not apply. An email from WSCO Finance Director Mary Dean Barwick to a Tallahassee attorney seeking clari cation is unclear. The opening line of Barwicks email refers to the payout as a cost of living adjustment, but in the very next sentence she writes, This would be a one-time adjustment paid to all employees of the WCSO as of Oct. 31, 2012. The reply back to Barwick from the attorney said simply, Mary Dean this looks good. Chairman Randy Merritt interceded, declaring that he wasnt willing to go on a witch hunt. The other board members were also unwilling to pursue action, implying that Kessler might only be doing so to pursue personal agenda. The remaining board members wanted to iterate that the current staff at the WCSO is not under scrutiny. I would be against asking them for the $100,000 back, said Commissioner Richard Harden, who stated that the county was in the process of paying back the WSCO for funds previously borrowed. Commissioner Jerry Moore added, I think this is coming from a grudge. If something illegal was done, no matter what the intention, maintained Kessler, that $100,000 should come back to the taxpayers. Current Sheriff Charlie Creel said, I think its time to put this issue to rest. The only ones who are going to win in this are the attorneys. I dont want to waste my valuable time, commissioners time or the taxpayers dollars. The board voted 4-1 to drop the item.

Allie was brought to us by commercial shermen who went to a great deal of trouble and expense to bring her to the dock a year ago, when they found her oating and comatose off Alligator Point. Dr. Norman Griggs of the Shepard Springs Animal Hospital provided a years worth of veterinary care, medications and X-rays. Volunteers at our aquarium hand-fed her until she could catch live crabs. School children raised money to purchase crabs, which have become very costly because they are so scarce. When Allie was strong enough to be released, the state Fish and Wildlife Commission and Department of Environmental Protections state park provided logistics to move her from Gulf Specimen Marine Labs aquarium to the waters edge at Bald Point State Park. It was a joyous occasion, with the crowd cheering and taking photographs, as we hoisted the turtle that had been so sick, and so close to death a year ago out of the Parks ATV and turned her lose. No one expected so many people to show and express such enthusiasm. So take heed, Commissioner Randy Merritt and the three other commissioners who voted to trash Wakulla Countys wetlands ordinance last week over the objections of nature lovers like the people who turned out in mass to see Allie released. By allowing development of so called isolated wetlands and eliminating buffers, you are destroying the food chain, and totally out of step with the overwhelming majority of the public who want to see our waters, coastal forests and swamp and over ow lands lled with wildlife, birds, sh and turtles. Your hypocritical speeches about private property make me sick. If you really believed in private property, youd get rid of most of your bloated Building and Planning and Zoning departments and your bloodsucking attorneys that drain our taxes and inflict neverending permits, fees and licenses and dictate trivia like how wide our steps must be and how many nails should be put in a board. Protect trees and vegetation that give us oxygen and lter the water we drink, swim and sh in. If you were really public servants, youd concern yourself on protecting property owners from the ooding when your developer buddies can freely ll isolated wetlands. The damage you just in icted on the public will remain long after youre gone when bulldozers scatter wildlife and deplete the nutrients from the isolated wetlands that feed the blue crabs and horseshoe crabs that in turn feed Allie the loggerhead sea turtle along with the sh, shrimp and crabs that we love to eat. Remember what Shakespeare said, The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with the bones. We will remember your evil come election time.Jack Rudloe is the founder of Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea and the author of numerous books.Editor, The News: Like many, Im disappointed in the board of county commissioners decision to weaken our wetland protections. But what worries me most is the level of discourse by our commissioners. Environmental protection depends on understanding scienti c principles and then using that information to form policy. This is difficult with sitting commissioners who think in terms of enough wetlands as in, the Apalachicola National Forest provides enough wetland protection, making additional protections obsolete. This represents a profound ignorance of the way water systems (and their contaminants) operate and is akin to saying sunscreen on half your body ensures that you wont get a sunburn on any of it. The same applies to the dismissive discussion of isolated wetlands which suggested that a mosquito bog doesnt merit protection like a pristine river, as if nding a natural feature pleasant was the only measure of its usefulness. This kind of thinking explains the boards eagerness to shift local protection to the state level. Most troubling of all, though, is the way words like freedom and rights get used as a cudgel to dilute discussion. Or to exempt whomever utters them from thinking things through. It should go without saying that were all in favor of freedom, but its no longer suf cient. So politicians remind us that they like freedom. A lot. The problem with how we use this word is that its often too abstract to make good policy. Is a 35 foot wetland buffer a violation of freedom? How about any wetland buffer? How about preservation of the wetland itself? This sort of sliding scale is very worrisome when whats at issue isnt individual or private at all, but something that impacts EVERYONE: our water. Saying this is simply an issue of freedom for property owners removes all context from what should be (and is) a complex and crucial subject. Its also a way, despite good intentions, to perpetuate willful ignorance and wishful thinking. An overlooked point made at the board meeting was this: We know more now. We better understand the sources of our ecological problems and how to remedy them. To act in direct violation of that knowledge in the name of principle doesnt make the outcome any less real. Of course, freedom and rights count they just dont get to bully or distract or get the last word simply because. Before I risk sounding alarmist, Ill grant that the approved changes arent sweeping. But the level of critical thinking demonstrated by our countys leadership doesnt bode well for future efforts. Degradation is patient and incremental, and most importantly it tends to be one-way. Given the current boards thinking (and past intent), too much seems possible. Emily Smith Sopchoppy Editor, The News: The county commissions short-sighted decision on June 17 could result in developers building in areas that current regulations do not allow. Commissioner Randy Merritts proposal to amend the comprehensive plan is a step toward weakening wetland protection in Wakulla County. A few years from now when developers want more land to build on you can be sure there will be more proposals to weaken wetlands protection. Do we really want Wakulla to look like South Florida? Pollution in Tampa Bay eliminated scallops from the bay area by the 1970s. I wonder how many times wetland protection laws were weakened before water quality in Tampa Bay deteriorated to the point scallops could not survive. A little here, a little there. . Many people say we have plenty of protected land in Wakulla County. Apparently we do not have enough since local beaches are often unsafe due to high bacteria counts. Development and agriculture are already adding too much runoff to the Gulf of Mexico. The coral reefs of the Florida Keys are dying. Do we as a society really think that property rights gives us the right to add even more pollution to the Gulf? How big will the dead zone in the Gulf have to get before we realize that this level of human impact is unsustainable? Interior and coastal wetlands lter out nitrogen and other man-made contaminants. As Jerry Moore points out, Leon County accounts for much of the nitrogen coming into Wakulla County. This actually makes preserving our wetlands even MORE critical for ltering these contaminants. The commissioner said this is about freedom. Remember that along with freedom comes the responsibility to do the right thing. We are not free to cause harm. If you agree that our wetlands are important to saving our coastal sheries and quality of life, please take action. Attend future meetings involving this proposal to weaken our wetlands ordinances and let your voice be heard. Eugene Watkins firstname.lastname@example.org Editor, The News: As a longtime resident (we moved here in 1963), I have seen our tiny rural county grow from a sleepy country farming and shing community, complete with limestone dirt roads and neighbors who treated each other like family, to what it is today an overdeveloped progressive suburb of Tallahassee, complete with stormwater runoff, wildlife habitat and ecosystems destruction, loud noisy sirens in the streets and highways, and much more. Forever gone is the beauty of what was once The Sportsmans Paradise. All for the sake of real estate developers and agents raping the land to vomit up even more foreclosed and empty housing, for which they line the pockets of one or two commissioners and/or building officials to gain the votes to push through their projects regardless of the wishes or good of the people. Since I can remember, this county has NEVER had a board of county commissioners who have ever sat in agreement for the good or well-being of the people. There will always be at least two or three who vote their own agenda... you know...the one that was bought and paid for. Rev. R.

Billy Jones quick reaction saved the life of a 4-year-old preschool child who was choking on an undetermined foreign object Monday, June 17. The child was not breathing when the childs mother frantically gave the child to Sgt. Jones seeking assistance. Jones was able to grab Sapheriah McKinney from her mother, Yolanda Timmons, and dislodge the foreign object. The object cleared the childs throat and Wakulla EMS arrived on scene to transport the child to the hospital for observation. After doctors determined that the child was in no danger, she was released from the hospital. On Wednesday, June 19, Yolanda Timmons presented a Special Hero Award to Jones in Sheriff Charlie Creels of ce. Forty-eight hours after the incident took place it was still emotional for Timmons. They are still not sure what it was, said Timmons as she wiped away her tears. I would like to give a special thanks to Sgt. Billy Jones for saving my daughters life. If it wasnt for you and God, my daughter wouldnt be here right now. Sgt. Jones showed great care in assisting the child and mother in their time of distress and crisis, but he also took the time to go back to the Bright Beginnings Preschool to let them know that Sapheriah was going to be ne, said Sheriff Creel. He is a ne example of some of the outstanding people we have working at the sheriffs of ce. This is what he was trained to do. We just panicked and got in the car and gured wed meet him halfway, said Timmons, a mother of three. You are my angels from above. After dislodging the object, Jones carried the child into the ambulance and gave her a teddy bear. I told her this little teddy bear needed a mama, said Jones, who has two children of his own. I get a little emotional too when I think about what could have happened. When Jones shared the story with his own family after work earlier this week, his daughter asked him to give a Minnie Mouse doll to Sapheriah on her behalf. Jones presented the Minnie Mouse to Sapheriah Timmons while the girls mother presented Jones with a plaque. Jones also returned to the preschool to talk to the students about never putting foreign objects in your mouth on Tuesday. Theres nothing worse than thinking youre losing a child, said Jones. I love working with the kids and it was awesome to get a hug. Jones tends to shy away from publicity but as Timmons presented the plaque, he said, I will treasure this. Jones is a former School Resource Of cer at Wakulla High School who is currently assigned to the Youth and Community Services Division. With in-service training underway at the sheriffs of ce, Jones was substituting on the Road Patrol while the regular road patrol crew was involved with training.Sgt.

(850) 926-7102 It was a Murphys Law week OUT TO PASTORBy JAMES L. SNYDERI am not what you would call a superstitious person. [Knock on wood.] I am a realist in a modi ed definition of that word and I usually take things as they come My past week, however, was an open commentary on Murphys Law. Offhand I am not quite sure who come up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week. If I had it within me, I would establish Snyders Law which simply stated means, what can go right will go right. Then all would be right with the world. Well, except for those who are left-handed. It all started Monday morning when I had an early morning meeting. I meant to set my alarm clock for 6 a.m. but for some reason I set it for 6 p.m. and overslept. Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy. In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn and they were charging me an insuf cient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed how it happened I will never know I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again. It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traf c. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was pointing way beyond the E. My gas tank was about as empty as my bank account. It is bad to run out of gas, but the worst thing for me about running out of gas is calling the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and asking her for help. I would walk 100 miles not to tell her I am out of gas. She always comes and bails me out. However, for the next six months I am reminded and reminded and reminded to put gas in my tank. Thursday also had its issues. My wife wanted me to go to the store and pick up something and for some reason, I cannot remember now, I used her car. Maybe it was because I did not want to run out of gas! I got to the store, paid for my purchase, came out and tried nding my truck. I walked up and down and my truck was nowhere in sight. The only thing I could think of at the time was that somebody had stolen my truck. I thought about calling the police, and then I thought better and decided I would call my wife rst. You know what it is like when your wife hears something secondhand. And so I called her. I cant nd my truck, I said trying to keep my voice as calm as possible not to get her upset, I think somebody stole it. Should I call the police? Silence on the phone. Then I heard her say in a very calm voice, Whoever stole your truck parked it in our driveway. I then remembered I was driving her car. I tried to chuckle within but I knew that this incident would hang in our house for months to come and I have Mr. Murphy to thank for that. It was such a horri c week and I was so deep in trouble with my Better Half, I decided to take her out Friday night for a nice meal on the town. I took her to her favorite restaurant and we ordered our supper, then set back and kind of sighed the week away. Maybe all that could go wrong has gone wrong and the week was about to turn around. We chatted. I tried to skew the conversation away from running out of gas and misplacing my truck. Then the waitress came with our meal. I was ready to settle down, enjoy a scrumptious meal and end the week on a happy note. The waitress set my wifes plate in front of her and she smiled. Then the waitress set my plate in front of me and I freaked out. For some reason the waitress got my order mixed up with somebody elses order and right in the middle of my plate was a pile of broccoli. The only hope I have is that it cannot get any worse than this. I think David, the psalmist, understood this when he wrote, ... weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5 KJV). As bad as it gets, as a Christian I have some great things to look forward to in Jesus Christ.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Elcoate Celia Ruth Vause Lippincott Sadie Lynne Harvey William R. Flury Jessie Clinton Nazworth Sr. Dora Ellen Hanna By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGOne of my daughters and I were talking about taking trips this week, as she was anticipating going to church camp and other adventures this summer. She reminisced about when she was a little girl, she would ask, Are we there yet? repeatedly, in anticipation of arriving. She said she no longer asks that at least, not out loud but she still has it in her head, Are we there yet? Are we there yet? I think we still do that as adults. We go through life asking, Are we there yet? when the question that really lurks in our minds is, When are we ever going to get there? And the there may seem ever elusive. What is the there? When are we ever going to arrive at our lifes destination, the place where we are at home and comfortable with our lives, the place of our best and greatest potential. The there becomes something that keeps moving. We ask, Are we there yet? when we strive toward becoming an adult and free from the oppression of being a child in someone elses home. Is the there at 18? or 21? With boomerang kids moving back home after launching and nding that life and freedom are not that easy, they again wonder, Are we there yet? which then stretches into midto late 20s. Are we there yet? we ask, as we climb the corporate ladder and seek to grow in our careers to the highest level. And with todays job uncertainties, we can get knocked down that ladder and start the climb all over again. We thought we were almost there when the there moved on us. Are we there yet? can be the question we ask in our relationships. We may go from one relationship to another, searching for a lifes mate, with the there being marriage. Then what happens when we get there the there becomes creating a family. A couple who are dating awhile are often prompted by their kin, So when are you getting married? which then becomes So when are you going to start having babies? Then we seek the next level of there. Middle age? Retirement? Death and new life? The Are we there yet? can be laced with to do lists. We get there when we daily, weekly, monthly, yearly knock out our to-do lists, only to be followed by one list after another. So where is there in the never ending line of to-do lists? I am guilty as charged. I get so caught up in my lists that sometimes I have to stop and just focus on the big picture. Where are my to-do lists taking me, in the big picture of things? Am I left feeling like I can never nish all of the lists and thus never get there? Sure, it feels great to mark off everything on a days listI did it! I got everything done that I needed to accomplish today. What a great feeling. THEN, tomorrow comes! All those things I accomplished yesterday are now forgotten. Thats old news. Today brings new goals, new challenges and I have to start all over again. The important question is, Is my to-do list just a barrage of shortterm tasks? Or does it have a larger there in mind? I frequently pray for God to help me be the best I can be, knowing that I have yet to attain my full potential. I pray for God to help me be the best wife and mom I can be. And the best daughter and the best grandparent I can be. I pray that I can be the best minister I can be and to help others be the best persons they can be. And I ask, Am I there yet? Am I at my very best? Not yet. I and we are still being challenged toward an even greater potential that God has in store for us. Its a lifelong journey. So as we continue on this journey of life, know God will be leading us toward ful lling Gods desires for our lives to become all weve been created to be. We can enjoy the there in each place along our journey. Yet keeping before us there is more. Are we there yet? Yes, each moment is a precious there. And, No, because were still on the way! And were tough enough for the journey and whatever we may face, by the grace of God. Rev. Dr. Betsy Goehrig is pastor and New Church Planter with the Disciples of Christ Church.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunitySpecial to The NewsThe staff of North Florida Child Development is excited to announce that they have been picked to participate in this years National Center on Health UCLA Healthcare Training Institute. With nine regional centers and serving over 360 area families, North Florida Child Development is one of only 50 Early Head Start and Head Start programs, nationwide, and the only one in Florida, selected to receive the training. The mission of UCLA Healthcare Training Institute is to educate parents in America to make better healthcare decisions for their children. North Florida Child Development applied for the training, which is 100% grant funded, and plans to conduct the parent training sessions in September of this year. Over 100 area families will participate in the initial two-day workshop receiving textbook and other valuable healthcare tools such as digital thermometers, free of charge. This training is designed to provide healthcare knowledge and enable parents to make better healthcare decisions for their children, said Sharon Gaskin, Executive Director, North Florida Child Development. The program is based on the What to Do When Your Child Gets Sick guidebook assembled by the UCLA group. In addition to the easy-to-read book, training sessions for parents will also include hands-on education on how to correctly measure medication and the correct hand-washing technique, among other things. Flipping through the book, Gaskin said each chapter has the same four sections: What is it, what do I see, what can I do at home and when to call the doctor. Its natural for parents to be worried when their child gets sick but it (the book) really takes the panic out, said Gaskin. A UCLA study showed that from 2002 to 2006 the program reduced participants' emergency room visits by 58%, doctor's visits by 42% and missed school days by 29%. During the last decade, UCLA health experts have helped Head Start coordinators train over 45,000 families in 39 states to use basic tools including reference books, digital thermometers and liquid medical dispensers to treat their children and avoid unnecessary visits to doctor's offices and emergency rooms.

White Sr., retired manager of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge has done it again. Poised on the brink of his four score years he has just published his second book, The Blue Goose and MeA National Wildlife Refuge Memoir. Upon the completion of a thirty- ve year career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife ServiceNational Wildlife Refuge System, Joe retired in 1996 and, with wife Anne, resides in their Brandt Hills neighborhood of Tallahassee. Born and raised in Winston County, Miss., his rst book, Sweet Times, Sweet Places, which was well received, tells of growing up country in Winston County during The Great Depression and WWII years. The Blue Goose and Me (the Blue Goose is the internationally recognized symbol of the National Wildlife Refuge System) takes a different tact, and in his conversational writing style Joe recalls some of his outdoor adventures as a young assistant manager on the rst four of the six southeastern national wildlife refuges on which he served. According to Joe, As a youngster growing up in rural Mississippi, I was vaguely aware of state and national parks and national forests, but I was totally ignorant about national wildlife refuges until I graduated from Southern Miss. and began my career as a wildlife/ wildlands manager on Chassahowitzka Refuge near Homosassa Springs. Today, I simply Google national wildlife refuge system and instantly have history and details at my finger tips, but back in mid-century, I had to learn the hard wayworking on one, which on balance I didnt consider work at all. Shoot, I would have done it for free, but they kept forcing a salary on me, which was just as well since I had a family to support. For one who started out ignorant about the national wildlife refuge system, I found out in a hurry that it was arguably one of the premiere national conservation agencies. Some of my fantastic experiences on six southeastern refuges border on the surreal, producing the kind of outdoor experiences that the average citizen would nd dif cult to comprehend. But, they were indeed real, not something I experienced in a dream, and in time I felt compelled to share the best of these adventures with readers who enjoy and appreciate wildlife and wilderness habitat for the wild creatures with whom we share planet earth.

He makes a positive difference! The Wakulla County School District has selected Wilton Booth as the June Employee of the Month. Booth has served as a custodian at WMS since 2007. When asked what is most enjoyable about his job, Booth replies, Seeing that the kids have a clean and safe environment to learn in. I also like smiling and communicating with others at work.

It is a pleasure to have Mr. Booth as a member of the Wildcat family. Booth named employee of the monthEmployee of the Month Wilton Booth of Riversink ElementarySPECIAL TO THE NEWS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF LORIDALooking to avoid another botched rollout of school grades this year, the State Board of Education on Tuesday asked Education Commissioner Tony Bennett to appoint a task force to examine the test scores used to calculate the grades. The move comes just a few weeks before the grades are set to be released, and with superintendents warning that preliminary calculations already show a possible collapse in the grades for schools across the state. The resulting grades show nearly 10 times more F elementary schools in our district, said Hillsborough County Superintendent MaryEllen Elia. Educators suspect the grades are being complicated, at least in part, by a slew of changes to the states testing regimen and standards. In addition to the increased standards, a provision put in place last year to keep school grades from dropping more than one letter is set to expire. In all, there are 13 changes being made to the scores this year after 19 were approved by the state board last year, said Miami-Dade County Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, who along with Elia spoke to the board at its Tuesday meeting to push for change. When you put all of that together, I dont think anybodys taken the time to examine the implications of the simultaneous coming together of all these variables, Carvalho said. While it was mentioned only in passing at the meeting, last years mishandling of the release of state grades formed part of the backdrop for Tuesdays discussion. Bennetts predecessor, Gerard Robinson, resigned in 2012 after less than a year on the job after the public-relations pounding the department took when FCAT scores collapsed, followed a few months later by a school grades mix-up. The Florida Board of Education was forced to lower passing grades for the statewide writing tests last year after the passing rate plunged from 81 percent to 27 percent for fourth graders and showed similar drops in eighth and 10th grades. Then, in July, the department had to reissue grades for 213 elementary and middle schools and nine school districts as part of a continuous review process. Within weeks, Robinson was gone, though he said the resignation was to allow him to spend more time with his family. But Carvalho said that at least one problem had been repeated, saying the state had not done enough to prepare parents for the possibility of a widespread drop in grades as standards increased, and clarifying that students might be learning more even as the grades fell. Now we are but a couple weeks away from the release of letter grades, he said. Its too late. Bennett and board members are hoping thats not the case. The task force will include superintendents from different regions of the state as well as state of cials who deal with the testing and accountability system. While no board meetings are scheduled before September, Chairman Gary Chartrand said one could be called if Bennetts group recommends changes. It may be late, but its not too late, Chartrand said. The task force is expected to be put together by sometime next week.

THE COOL DOWN LAPSeminole baseball summer updateBy ALAN ROSSThe month of June should start with the letter W for Martin Truex Jr. It was 218 races in coming, but the Michael Waltrip Racing driver nally notched his second career Cup victory Sunday, cycling into the winning pit-stop strategy early to win the Toyota Save Mart 350 at the twisting, elevationchanging road layout of Sonoma Raceway. His previous one and only win? A June ride across the nish line at Dover six years ago, back in 2007. It was our day, said Truex Jr., the lap leader, with 51. Weve had a lot of days that were not our day. Early on, it was all pole-sitter Marcos Ambrose. The Tasmanian driver with the road-racing pedigree stormed to the front and held onto the premier spot until passed by Kurt Busch on Lap 19 of the 110-lap tour of the northern California vineyard countryside. Jeff Gordon got burned when the races second caution flag came out on Lap 24, just a second before he crossed the commitment cone onto pit road. The 24 car had to restart 37th and its day appeared done. Busch, going for what appeared to be a two-stop strategy, held off pitting until Lap 36. He probably wished he hadnt. Busch got busted for speeding on pit lane (twice during the afternoon!) and just like that, his race too suddenly seemed over. With 30 to go, a caution created decisions up and down pit road. The top 15 cars, including leader Truex Jr., wound up staying out on track, gambling that theyd make it the rest of the way, and most importantly, not wanting to yield track position with the race in its latter stages. But a host of cars, headed by Gordon, pitted for fresh tires and fuel. With 25 to go, Truex Jr. took the restart. Gordon, meanwhile, clearly resurfaced, picking off spots right and left through the eld before roaring to a secondplace nish. Lo and behold Kurt Busch, long left for dead, crossed the line in fourth place, both cars producing the most remarkable comebacks of the afternoon. Jimmie Johnson, a ninth-place finisher at Sonoma, holds a 25-point lead over Carl Edwards in the points race, as the Cuppers descend on Sparta, Kentucky, this Saturday night. IOWA CORN INDY 250: Pole-sitter James Hinchcliffe won his third IndyCar race of 2013, completely dominating the Iowa Corn Indy 250 Sunday. Graham Rahal gave Hinchcliffe the only challenge at the .875-mile Iowa Speedway tri-oval. On the restart following the third caution with 90 laps to go in the 250-lap race, Rahal brie y took the lead but ultimately failed to hold off the stronger car of Hinchcliffe. With 35 laps remaining, interim leader Ed Carpenter was delayed on pit road by a slow tire change and Hinchcliffe easily regained the lead in the cycling changeover. Defending series champion Ryan HunterReay then slipped into second place, and with 16 laps left, it was Andretti Autosport the years unquestioned superior team in IndyCar running 1 and 2. But Hunter-Reay got hung up in traf c with eight laps left, and Hinchcliffe breezed to victory, Andretti Autosports fth triumph in seven races this season. Helio Castroneves, an eighth-place nisher at Iowa, maintains a ninepoint series points lead over Hunter-Reay, as IndyCar picks up in Pocono a fortnight from now.Read Alan Ross article on the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013 in Lindys Sports 2013 Pro Football Preview at newsstands everywhere.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 Page 11Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFrom DEP NewsGov. Rick Scott, along with the Florida Cabinet, approved innovative techniques to support the oyster fisheries in Franklin County. Im proud to support efforts that can help Franklin County, Scott said. Our Florida Families First budget provides $4.7 million for water quality restoration projects in the Apalachicola Bay estuary and oyster shelling and research to help the industry recover. These new techniques will support the oyster sheries and help Florida families in Apalachicola. For more than 20 years, the State of Florida has battled Georgia and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over water that ows south from the Chattahoochee River into the Apalachicola River and Bay. Historically low water levels brought about by Georgias excessive consumption have caused oysters to die because of higher salinity in the Bay and increased disease and predator intrusion. Scott said, The Cabinets action today allows Spring Creek Oyster Co., operating within Alligator Harbor Aquatic Preserve in Franklin County, to modify two existing aquaculture leases in order to use the full water column for oyster harvesting. Currently, the company uses the submerged land bottom to conduct oyster cultivation by placing young oysters in cages at the bottom of the waterbody. Once the oysters mature, the cages are removed and oysters harvested. Allowing the company to use the full water column will allow the cages to be suspended above the bottom, providing the oysters some protection from predators and greater access to nutrients as they grow. The oating cages may be the initial step in a new aquaculture practice and may become a potential alternative economic stimulus for the eastern bounds of Apalachicola Bay, which historically has produced 90 percent of the oysters in Florida and 10 percent of the nations supply. Allowing use of the full water column is the only change to Spring Creek Oyster Co.s two aquaculture leases, which expire Jan. 29, 2022 and March 29, 2022. The company is a current submerged land leaseholder and is in compliance with the terms and conditions of two existing leases and the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services aquaculture best management practices. Both the Department of Environmental Protection and Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services have reviewed the proposed modi cation to the existing leases and determined that the activities will not result in adverse impacts to seagrasses, existing shell sh beds, natural reefs or other sensitive habitats.Lease approved for innovative oystering techniqueInnovative oyster process could rejuvenate Apalachicola Bay industry KIDS FISHING EQUIPMENTThe big fishing tackle us adults use can be difficult for kids to use. Ultralight push button or spin casting are ideal and much more durable than those cute little cheap combos. These downsized rigs are easy for small kids to hold and are relatively tangle free. Best of all, they make even a small sunfish feel like a whopper. Starting a child right means using decent, functional tackle. Anything less performs poorly and invites discouragement. Find an ultralight combo with a soft tip which means easy casting and a reel that handles 4-pound test line well and has a smooth drag. The price is usually around $30 which isnt too bad either. Most important from the youngster's view is that it works, it fits, and its fun. Now go find a place where they can catch a mess of perch or bullhead catfish and youll have a kid hooked on fishing.

LEON COUNTY: Investigator James Bryant was patrolling Luther Hall Landing Boat Ramp when he observed a pickup truck traveling northbound pulling a vessel trailer with an expired registration and no operating taillights. Bryant conducted a traf c stop. He made contact with the driver and after identifying the subject, Bryant learned that he had just been released from prison seven months earlier for felony battery and narcotics sales, and was currently on felony probation. A routine records check confirmed the subjects driver license was suspended, and he was classi ed as a habitual traffic offender. Bryant placed the subject under arrest for felony driving while license suspended and habitual traffic offender. The individual was transported to the Leon County Jail. BAY COUNTY: Officer Karl Hellett received a complaint of subjects consuming alcohol and shark shing from the St. Andrews State Park pier. Of cer Hellett arrived at the pier at midnight and found eight subjects shark shing. He observed four of the subjects consuming alcohol and inquired if they had permits to be in the park after hours. The subjects could not produce any permits. Once at the parking lot, he asked for identification from all eight subjects. One of the subjects, who Of cer Hellett knew from past experiences, stated he did not have any identification. This subject left the park before Of cer Hellett completed his inquiry. He issued citations to the four subjects he observed consuming alcohol and written warnings to all seven of the subjects for remaining in a closed state park without a permit. Of cer Hellett knew the name of the subject who left the park and where he worked. Two days later, Hellett assisted by officers Michael Goodwin and James Moore, went to the subjects place of employment. They waited for the subject to get off work and arrested him for resisting without violence. The subject was also cited for being in a closed state park without a permit. The man was transported to the Bay County Jail. Lt. Leamon Keen, Of cers Jim Moore and Warren Walsingham responded to a complaint of a subject who jumped from the Hathaway Bridge. Of cer Walsingham launched his vessel at the Carl Grey Park Boat Ramp and transported a Bay County sheriffs of ce supervisor to the area under the bridge where the subject landed. Lt. Keen and Of cer Moore arrived by vessel to the scene and found the deputy standing near the deceased victim on a concrete platform under the center span of the bridge. Lieutenant Keen and Of cer Moore assisted the sheriffs of ce by obtaining contact information from witnesses in two vessels who were shing near the center span when the subject jumped. Of cer Warren Walsingham observed a subject fishing from a kayak in the Burnt Mill Creek Boat Ramp area. When the subject approached the ramp, Of cer Walsingham engaged the subject in conversation and asked him if he had caught any sh. The subject stated he caught one redfish, and began loading his kayak into his truck. As he was storing his gear, Officer Walsingham saw him stow a llet knife and also noticed the subject appeared nervous and rushed. Of cer Walsingham identi ed himself as an FWC Of cer and checked the mans catch. The individual had a legal redfish and was asked if he had any more sh. The subject stated he did not. While checking the cooler bag that contained the legal red sh, Of cer Walsingham found two redfish fillets. The subject admitted he knew he couldnt have llets on the water and thats why he did not tell the truth. The subject was cited for failure to land red drum in whole condition. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: Of cer Kenneth Manning received a call from Alabama Marine Resources requesting assistance with a net case. A net boat was observed fishing in the Gulf of Mexico just off the beach at the state line. Of cer Manning quickly responded to the area, began searching for the vessel and located the 28-foot homemade vessel moored at the Bayou Grande Marina on Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. Of cer Manning alerted the Navy Security Forces and, within minutes, was noti ed three adult males on foot were apprehended. Lt. Dan Hahr, and of cers Faris Livesay and James Rockwell responded to the area to assist with the investigation. Lt. Hahr and Of cer Manning interviewed the subjects and were initially told they had been towed into the marina after having engine trouble. Of cers with Alabama Marine Resources located a piece of a mono lament gill net that was left behind by the net shermen. The vessel owner admitted that he had a net in his boat, but claimed that he was shark shing in federal waters as he was permitted to do. The of cers continued to interview the owner and obtained a confession that he had been shing in Alabama waters very near to the Florida line, but was spooked by witnesses, cut the net, and then ed to the Pensacola Pass. The subjects located a place to park their boat and got a ride. The of cers located two mono lament gill nets in the boat. One of the nets was wet and contained approximately 75 pounds of coastal sh including blue runner, Spanish mackerel, blue fish, and one blue crab. The larger net was estimated to be approximately 20,000 square feet. The vessel owner was arrested and charged with two felony counts of possession of a mono lament entangling net (flagrant violation), two counts of carriage of illegal nets across state waters, and two counts of possession of a net that was not marked as required. The man was booked at the Escambia County Sheriffs Of ce. He and the other two subjects onboard were issued notices to appear in front of a Federal Magistrate for unlawful entry onto a military base for unlawful purposes. Of cers with Alabama Marine Resources are conducting an investigation regarding net fishing without a license and additional charges are pending.FWC Law Enforcement operations Ill show you how a life insurance policy with living benets can help your family with both long-term and short-term needs.

One of the hot topics of debate is equipment servicing. Regulators for example, that device that delivers breathing gas to the diver at ambient pressure, is considered to be life support equipment. The buoyancy compensator has been lumped into the same category. These products have been sold under manufacturer guidelines to be serviced annually. Some manufacturers, like Atomic Aquatics, are backing their service intervals down to 200 dives or two years, whichever comes rst. But many assumptions exist. Numerous manufacturers are no longer in business. Dacor is a classic example of a company that closed its doors after ooding the market with very good regulators. Some of their replaceable components can now be sourced by third parties but many dive stores wont service due to liability concerns (no manufacturer to blame). Even the companies who specialize in just servicing regulators, usually for dive stores, wont touch these discontinued models. Many stores offer plans to restore these vintage or discontinued regulators under the condition that they not be used for life support, that is to say you put them on display only. What exactly is happening to your equipment when it is being serviced? How much should it cost? Is the person servicing your equipment both quali ed and certi ed to do so? Is the store that is servicing it a dealer for it and able to get parts? Is servicing really necessary? These are ALL things you, the diver, should be asking when you bring a piece of equipment in for service or repair. When a regulator (or any dive equipment) is brought in for service it should rst be inspected for obvious signs of corrosion and/or damage. The hose protectors should be pulled back to inspect the hoses and then the regulator should be function tested. In many cases the regulator is probably functioning just ne. It may need a tuning, but chances are good that if you care for it then the machine is operational. If an unquali ed technician takes it apart there is a good chance they could damage it internally or that it will perform worse than when you dropped it off. Its imperative that you discuss your use of the equipment with the technician and make sure they are quali ed and in stock of most, if not all, service parts. The delay from having to order a part can be signi cant. The scuba world doesnt follow the trends set by automotive parts stores so there arent any warehouses a few cities away offering next day shipment of critical components. Inside your average scuba regulator is little more than an organized arrangement of O-rings and some seating surfaces. The seats consist of a soft, plastic like, sealing surfaces. Over time the soft seats can wear and this allows a leak past the ori ce. The O-rings can dry out and crack or diaphragms can be eaten by roaches. A standard service consists of disassembly, cleaning, replacing these rubber components with new ones, and adding a bit of lube to dynamic seals. Its extremely basic to work on, but knowing how to troubleshoot an issue and properly tune them for optimal breathing is critical. As a diver its ultimately your responsibility to make sure your equipment, including regulators, cylinders, valves, and buoyancy compensators are in good working condition. Its also your due diligence to be informed about the workings of your speci c equipment so that you can best make decisions about how, when, and where it is serviced.

Duane Treadon attended as Flotilla Commander for Flotilla 12, Carolyn Treadon is the Division secretary and Tim Ashley is the Division nance staff of cer. Flotillas on the western side of our area are much closer to military bases and have established a great working relationship with them. This allows us as an auxiliary to utilize meeting space and interact with the active duty. In addition to the Divisions leadership, Commander Gordon Schmidt and Vice Commander Eric DeVuyst, we were lucky to be joined by Commander Russell Hellstern from DIRAUX, 8CR Commodore Larry King and District Capt. East Mo Davis. Commander Hellstern shared with us the impact that budget cuts have had on the active duty as well as the auxiliary. He challenged us to do our best to maximize our assets and utilize our resources to the best of our ability. Commodore King addressed to everyone the importance of mentoring new members and maintaining communication to ensure that all members are able to get from the Auxiliary what they hoped for when joining. If we dont take time to talk to people, he said, we are not operating effectively and cannot complete our mission to the fullest of our ability. District Capt. East Mo Davis talked about hurricane season, ensuring that we are all prepared to respond if needed. As an Auxiliary, we are often rst responders when the active duty are responding to other emergencies. Especially in an area like ours where the station is so far away. Throughout the meeting, we were lucky to catch sight of various practice ights in different formations. For those of us who do not see it regularly, it was a real treat. In addition to the Division meeting this past weekend, the Auxiliary had another major event we celebrated our 74th birthday on June 23, 2013! As we all left the Naval Air Station, there were community members, re trucks, police, sheriff, and other emergency personnel were lining the streets. We later found out that it was for Army Staff Sgt. Jesse Thomas, 31, who was killed June 10 while serving in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. It was a reminder of the many sacri ces that are made every day that allow us to have our freedom. We offer our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Staff Sgt. Thomas.

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 21 After a weekend where Democrats expressed confidence that they could beat Gov. Rick Scott in 2014, a pair of events this week sent them a stark reminder of a bromide that approaches clich: In politics, 17 months is a lifetime. On Tuesday, a public poll showed Scotts approval rating improving -not enough to give him a lead on some of his possible Democratic opponents, but enough to give him a chance to put his rumored $100 million re-election budget to good use. Now that doesnt mean that happy days are here again for the governor, but if he is going to make a comeback these are the kind of steps that would be required, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, in a news release announcing the results. Whether it is the start of something larger, well see in the coming months. And the governor got more encouraging news by the time he stepped off a plane Friday, returning home from a trip to Paris. The states unemployment rate fell to 7.1 percent in May, the lowest since September 2008. SCOTTS TRES BONNE WEEK The positive news for Scotts political fortunes could only be seen when considering where he was a few months ago. Florida voters were evenly divided on his job approval rating, with 43 percent approving and 44 percent disapproving. Thats an improvement for a governor who, in March, was staring at 36 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval. Scott also boosted his standing in a hypothetical race against former Gov. Charlie Crist, who spent the weekend showing off his newfound Florida Democratic Party membership at the Jefferson-Jackson soiree in Hollywood, Fla., but wouldnt directly answer questions about whether he would challenge Scott. If Crist does take that step, the poll showed the race moving from a drubbing for Scott to a sound defeat. Crist led the poll by 10 points, instead of 16 points just three months ago. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson would also win by 10 points if he reverses his not-quite Shermanesque insistence that he wont run. Scott would beat former state Sen. Nan Rich, but that could have more to do with the fact that Rich remains unknown to 84 percent of Floridians despite Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Currys efforts to bring attention to the only current or former elected of cial to announce her candidacy for the Democratic nomination. In perhaps the surest sign that the poll was good news for Scott, Democrats tried to downplay the numbers. Only in Rick Scotts world does going from an F to a Drepresent success, state Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant said in a statement. While polls will go up and down, whats certain is that Florida voters do not trust this governor to ght for them and their families, and we are con dent they will vote him out of of ce next year The governor was not in town to hear about the poll numbers -he had spent the week in Paris, attending an air show while leading a trade delegation. Nor was he there to hear Browns advice for how Scott could continue to turn things around. The governor needs to make voters believe he is responsible for a better economy. Thats the key to his electoral future, Brown said. He isnt going to get re-elected because he is Mr. Personality. He needs to essentially convince voters, You may not like me, but Im the guy who is making things better. But as Scott returned to the country voila! the states unemployment rate continued its turnaround. It fell to 7.1 percent in May, the latest chance for Scott to use his campaign slogan: Its Working. Each month, we continue to distance ourselves from the national unemployment rate, and it is clear we are succeeding in growing opportunities for Florida families to pursue the American Dream, Scott said in a release. Once again, Floridas unemployment rate is well below the national average. The national mark stands at 7.6 percent. Economists said, however, that some of the drop is still due to people having dropped out of the work force, in addition to new jobs created in a clearly recovering economy. SUMMER SCHOOL Despite most of their students being out, the two boards that oversee the vast majority of education in Florida spent the week considering policies concerning public schools and universities. After hearing hours of presentations about the future plans of universities, the Florida Board of Governors shot down those schools proposals on student fees even though the increases were favored by students. The most sweeping decision came on a proposal by eight universities to increase the capital improvement trust fund fees, or CITF fees, which pay for construction projects approved by university panels that draw at least half their members from the student body. But the board also rejected new environmental fees at two Florida schools. Carlo Fassi, the student body president at the University of North Florida, said he and other colleagues strongly support the increase in the construction fee and the projects it could fund. I truly, and the student body presidents here truly do not believe that a vote against CITF is prostudent, Fassi said. Not whatsoever. But board members said they were growing exasperated with repeated requests to boost fees by what they were constantly assured was a small amount. And we amount it to, well, its only a cup of coffee, board member Norm Tripp told students backing one of the fees. But what weve got now are gallons and gallons of coffee that youre paying for every credit hour. Meanwhile, the State Board of Education was maneuvering to avoid another embarrassing rollout for school grades after last years release was botched. Superintendents from around the state are warning that a possible collapse could happen because of a slew of changes to testing standards. When you put all of that together, I dont think anybodys taken the time to examine the implications of the simultaneous coming together of all these variables, MiamiDade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said. The board asked Education Commissioner Tony Bennett to put together a task force to look into the issue. Bennetts predecessor, Gerard Robinson, resigned in 2012 after less than a year on the job after the public-relations pounding the department took when FCAT scores collapsed, followed a few months later by a school grades mix-up. SLOW-WALK THE LINES Looming almost as large as Scotts poll numbers in the 2014 electoral picture is whether the districts that lawmakers drew for congressional districts and legislative districts for that matter would stand. Leon Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis decided Thursday to push back the trial on a case challenging the congressional maps, in part because Lewis is still working on which documents can be used during arguments over the lines. The trial was set to begin in August, but will now likely be pushed back to December or January, Lewis said. In that trial, a coalition of voting-rights groups will argue that the maps violated the states new, anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts standards. Lewis decision became despite arguments from Ashley Davis, counsel for the Florida Department of State, that the delay could impact the 2014 election cycle, with candidates facing a March 31 deadline to collect signatures for qualifying petitions. Meanwhile, the two sides continued scuf ing over whose maps were actually biased. George Meros, an attorney for the Florida House, said the coalitions maps would intentionally favor Democrats. A fundamental part of their complaint is that these are non-partisan entities that joined together that wanted to draw fair districts, when we know the evidence shows to the contrary, Meros said. But the newest filing from the coalition also included portions of the May 16 deposition of Marc Reichelderfer, listed as a political operative, which indicated that he received seven electronic drafts of congressional maps a couple of weeks before they were made public. The maps were given to Reichelderfer by an aide to then-House Speaker Dean Cannon. When asked during the deposition if he received the maps so he could analyze the political impact of the proposed lines, Reichelderfer responded, I could have done that, yes, sir. STORY OF THE WEEK: The Florida Board of Governors, under pressure from Gov. Rick Scott, shot down a series of fee increases requested by students. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: We always anticipate that when former Gov. Bush doesnt get his way, he just keeps coming back until he can try and get it. Florida Education Association President Andy Ford, on whether he anticipates the return of an education bill backed by former Gov. Jeb Bush.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Tres bien fait, Monsieur le GouverneurBy SLIM RANDLES In the realm of country cooking, the elite are those who can take a heavy cast-iron Dutch oven, scrape out some glowing coals from a cook re, and create masterpieces. And in this neck of the woods, the emperor of cast-iron splendor is Ed Parsons. Ed actually has a j.o.b. to pay the bills, you know, but his passion kicks in on the weekend with about 600 pounds of pots, a lot of re, an authentic cowboy chuck wagon and hungry folks who appreciate excellence. In fact, ol Ed has come real close to turning an art form into a science. He does this by shunning the use of coals from a re and relying instead on the practicality of charcoal briquets. Using charcoal, he knows to the minute when each dish is ready to eat, and he likes it that way. A few years ago, he ventured to another state to participate in a chuck wagon contest, complete with a cowboy Dutch oven cook-off, and as usual he represented those of us here at home admirably. But what was more important was how he managed to carve his name into something of a legend in this outof-state town. There were hundreds of chuck wagons and campfires out there, Ed said. Seemed like miles of them. And this lady reporter from the local paper heard there was someone from out of state taking part, so she looked me up for an interview. I had just put some cobbler on in a 12-incher and had checked my watch, because with the briquets, I know it takes me exactly ... I mean exactly... 18 minutes until its ready. I suggested we go somewhere quiet for the interview, so we walked about a hundred yards away through dozens of chuck wagons and sat down for a visit. Ed was his usual charming self through the interview, but kept an eye on the time, without seeming to. When 18 minutes had passed, he stuck his nose in the air and sniffed, then sniffed again. He said hed have to be excused, because he could smell his cobbler and it was done. You cant possibly smell your cobbler out of all the hundreds of yard out there, the reporter said. Ed gave her a kind look as you would to a newcomer in any sport, then sniffed again. Yep, he said, turning brown on top. In fact, by the time we get back, the brown will be clear across the top. A good cook always knows his own cobbler. He then led the reporter back through the maze of cooks, popped the lid on the Dutch oven, and showed her the finished product. Nice and brown all the way across the top. Ed laughs at the memory. Eighteen minutes, he says. Im telling you, eighteen minutes exactly.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comThere are a certain select few words in the English language which convey instantly the concept to be communicated. These terms are frequently puny, terse, and quite to the point. Stink is one of those expressions. Rare be the individual who does not understand when the term stink is applied to the abstract concept or a tangible object in a conversation. Whether it be a particular sports team, a political idea or a weekend spent at some ill-considered activity, if it stinks it is not good or worth repeating. The insect world has a member which has this appellation attached. Stinkbugs, which are members of the Pentatomidae family, have a welldeserved reputation for bad behavior and odor. Curiously, the scienti c name Pentatomidae means ve sections, referring to the body parts. Wakulla County is currently seeing an abundant quantity of all this familys malodorous members. Vegetable gardeners are particularly concerned as these insects damage the plants and the vegetable products produced. Two stinkbug types are exotic pests. The Southern green stink bug is believed to have originated in Ethiopia with its distribution now including the tropical and subtropical regions of Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. In North America, it is limited primarily to the southeastern United States, Ohio and Arkansas in the Midwest, and to Texas in the southwest. It is also established in Hawaii and California. The adult is easy to recognize with a shieldshaped body and an overall dull green color. The eyes are dark red or black. The average length for males and females is about half an inch. Females can lay eggs three to four weeks after becoming adults, laying as many as 260 eggs over her life span. The other exotic member is the Kudzu bug which was rst found in Wakulla County last month. Its length is less than one quarter inch and it originated in Japan. These exotic stinkbugs work like most of the stinkbugs worldwide, using their mouth parts to pierce tender plant tissues and suck juices out. This trait is not an issue until it interferes with suburban landscapes or commercial agriculture. Farmers and homeowners alike have spent countless sums fighting the hordes of stinkbugs dining on particular plants and foliage. Tender vegetation and inmature vegetables are particularly attractive to the stinkbugs. Only the stinkbugs reproductive rate and hardiness have assured its continuation. Behavior and popularity aside, the stinkbug does use an internal chemical weapons system to deliver a foul smelling substance for its personal safety and protection. This anti-predator adaption is located in the stinkbugs thorax pores and is hard to miss when it expends all of its reeking resources. Unfortunately for the stinkbug this does not always work. In some native Southeast Asian cultures, the stinkbugs odor is considered a culinary enhancer. The local stinkbugs are mixed with other local specialty items to produce a popular, strong smelling condiment.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life By MAURICE LANGSTONSenior Center DirectorI was reading this week on MSN where Jiroemon Kimura died. He was the Guinness World Record holder for being the oldest person alive on Earth. Kimura was a 116 years old at the time of his death and was a former post of ce worker. MSN stated that he was the last known man to live across three centuries. I thought to myself life is good! He was obviously a man who knew how to turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones. I never met Mr. Kimura, but I cant help believe he was a positive thinker like Zig Zigler writes about. Most likely he got up every morning, gave himself an internal check-up from the neck up, and destroyed any negative or stinkin thinkin that may have greeted him when his feet hit the oor. Im always looking for keys or clues to long life to employ at the Wakulla Senior Citizens Center. Mr. Kimura, though thousands of miles away gave me a few tips on quantity of life and quality of life. Kimuras Tips and Techniques to living the good life: No. 1 Get out in the sunlight! On his 115th birthday, Mr. Kimura told reporters he attributed his longevity to getting out in the sunlight. Now weve all been warned about the sunlight and melanoma. I heed warnings like this and so to better prepare myself for the sunlight I spent $75 for appropriate headgear (Salt Life hat) and a facial wrap (Buff facewrap). I look like Freddy Kruger on my boat now but everybody is wearing it for sun protection. I came across this article from the Huf ngton Post warning readers to avoid all sunlight all the time. Ive printed the article in part it for your edi cation and see if you pick up on anything strange; Avoid all sunlight all the time. The co-founder of the Melanoma Research Alliance and Broadway producer formed this alliance after her own experience with melanoma on the bottom of her foot. Maybe she used to go into Central Park or onto the roof of her apartment building and do headstands for several hours daily, or she spent way too much time in tanning parlors. Theres no other way a Manhattanite would get melanoma on the bottom or her foot if sunlight is the sole culprit for skin cancers. Sunlight is the creator of vitamin D3 creation in our bodies. Sunshines UVB rays interact with the cholesterol in our skin that ignites a process to create vitamin D from our kidneys and liver. I will wear my hat and face wrap but will enjoy the sun on my face and skin for 20 to 30 minutes at least four times a week. Im in luck too Florida has plenty of sunshine. Thank you, Mr. Kimura, for shedding a little light on the issue of long life. No. 2 Try a little kindness. MSN went on to say; He lived at home under the care of his grandsons 60-year-old wife. Kimura would greet almost any visitor from abroad with the English phrase he learned: Thank you very much, you are very kind. Kindness is a powerful tool, a boomerang, a weapon of wonderful that we should throw at folks every day. And like the boomerang kindness will always come back to you. Kindness is an in your face action and attitude. What I mean by that is people can see kindness expressed in your face, your eyes, in your smile and your expression; literally its an in your face response. George Washington Carver said; How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. Researcher tell us that there are good health benefits to being kind. Scientist tell us that being kind has numerous physical health bene ts as well has mental health bene ts. Kindness is the gift you get when you give kindness as a gift. Mr. Kimura was well aware of this and I believe it contributed to his long life. No. 3 Look up to the sky. I am always looking up towards the sky. That is how I am, Kimura said. Was Kimura a man who gave thanks and thought that all of his blessing came from above? Did he ever read Luke 9:16 which says in part, Looking up to heaven, He gave thanks Turn to Page 4BOn the death of the worlds oldest man, Jiroemon Kimura By MICHELLE HUNTERof the Senior CenterMay was for all the mothers on their special day. We had a very special celebration to honor all the mothers who came to the center for some fun and pampering. The ladies started the day getting the fingernails polished by Courtney Parker and Angel Carter. They had every color polish you could imagine, and painted owers and fun designs. Then they dressed up in hats and feather boas to get their glamour photos taken. Our volunteer photographers, Joanne Strickland and Toni Courtier, took pictures of mothers, mothers with their daughters, grandmothers with their granddaughters, and even husbands with wives, and everyone received a framed photo. Thank you, Courtney, Angel, Toni, and Joanne for making it such a fun lled day. Senior Center Director Maurice Langston addressed the ladies with a heart lled story about a mothers love and the God given gift a mother brings to the world. Doug Apple, of WAVE 94FM, interviewed several of the ladies for a Mothers Day radio program which aired several times on that Sunday. Each of the participants received a recorded copy of the program on a CD. Some of the ladies spoke of how it brought them to tears when they listened to the program. Doug made the interview sound as if they were all sitting around talking to an old friend. They reminisced about memories of songs that reminded them of their mothers, and gave advice they thought new mothers today could use. Thank you, Doug Apple, for such a joyful gift. We celebrated a Pioneer Day with blacksmiths, soap makers, a camp re cake maker, and a good ol sh fry.

Susan Willis demonstrated how to make soap from ingredients such as fat from her own pigs, lye, and other natural items. She heated the ingredients over a re, lique ed it and poured it into a mold, then shared it with the seniors. Many of them remembered doing this when they were younger. Steve Can eld made a camp re dump cake in a cast iron pot. He poured peaches in the bottom of the pot, covered that with a cake mix, covered it with foil and the lid, and placed hot coals on top and underneath, and baked for 40 minutes. Everyone agreed that it was delicious. The crowd inside enjoyed the music of the Pickin n Grinnin Band, and the day concluded with a Fish Fry lunch. Several gentlemen from the community volunteered their time to prepare the fish and hush puppies a local favorite. We were honored to host a group of 40 young medical students from the FSU College of Medicine. They came to tour and observe rural Wakulla County as part of their studies, and to encourage them to become doctors that would want to bring their medical practice to such a county. They visited the Health Department, the senior center, and the Wakulla TMH Physicians of ce. At the center, Maurice Langston, executive director of the senior center, County Commissioner Jerry Moore, and Michelle Hunter spoke to the students on what it is that our seniors need and are looking for in a physician. They also spoke on the importance of the Senior Center as part of the social community needed for our senior population to remain active and healthy. The students were accompanied by Dr. John Fogarty, dean of FSU College of Medicine; Dr. Mel Harts eld, dean of Tallahassee Regional Campus of the College of Medicine; Dr. Alan Rowan of the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy; and Dr. Gail Bellamy, professor and director of the Florida Blue Center for Rural Health Research and Policy. It was a very informative day for the students, and the FSU staff enjoyed getting to know us and what we do here at the center for our senior population. They are planning to bring future students here as part of their curriculum. If you have any questions please call the center at 926-7145.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comFrom Page 1B Could Mr. Kimura be telling us that thanksgiving is not just a one day holiday, observed every year, but that every day is thanksgiving? Thankfulness is not to be a temporary state of mine, but a permanent state of the heart. Had Mr. Kimura turned thanksgiving into thanksliving? Perhaps this is why he lived to age 116? Maybe we should practice thanks-living every day and when we walk out of our homes, dont just look out, but look up! No. 4 Eat often and eat right. According to local media, Kimura ate a threemeal-a-day diet of rice, pumpkins and sweet potatoes. Now Im not a vegetarian, but I am rethinking my eating habits. The sweet potato is packed with ber, protein, and complex carbohydrates. The vine is close kin to the morning glory and the sweet potato is close kin to the regular potato. Kimura liked starches and ate them three times a day. The sweet potato is very rich in beta carotene and is a rich source of avonoid and other antioxidants. Rice is the staple grain for more than half the worlds population, especially Asia. I cant help but wonder, did he dine on white rice or brown rice? Brown rice is a good source of vitamins such as Vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (ribo avin) and vitamin B3 (niacin) as well as iron, magnesium and dietary ber. Rice is also a great source of complex carbohydrates which gives us much of the energy we need. Rice alone provides 20 percent of the worlds dietary energy supply. Rice contains all the amino acids essential for building and maintaining muscle tissue, and make up antibodies, enzymes, and hormones. These amino acids also help maintain healthy skin, hair, eyesight, and nourish the heart, lungs, tendons and ligaments, brain, nervous system and glands. No. 5 Family. The MSN article went on to say; He leaves behind seven children, 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 14 great-great grandchildren. Family may well be the most powerful force on Earth! It was instituted long before all other institutions; government, church, etc. We read of the rst family (not the President), Adam and Eve. The home is the rst and nest institution known to man. Kimura was living with his grandson and was being cared for by the grandsons 60-year-old wife. Kimura was aging at home with family. A mans home is not just his castle, its a cocoon! Home is the place where family wraps you tightly and its a place of warm, love, unity and comfort. The good home environment is the environment that everyone longs for. The home is the closest thing to heaven we can know on Earth. Its not just a haven, its a piece of heaven. Homes are made up of a man, a woman, a child or two or more, and lets not forget our four-legged friends and those with fur, feathers, skin or ns. Call this unit a unit, a clan, a brood, a tribe, a herd, a network or a family they are priceless treasures that we can return home too and their differences make the difference in our lives. Someone said a family is like fudge, what makes it great is there are a few chocolate drops, a few fruits and some nuts! It sounds like a banana split to me with a cherry on top! Today at the Wakulla Senior Center I was met rst thing with a homeless senior citizen. He had family but no family he could return to how sad. I will call it the rst bad day Ive had at the senior center. To see someone in their late 60s and knowing at the end of the day there is no place for him to go to lay his head or no one to lay his head upon brought on deep angst in my heart. Im working with the various charities to try to nd a roof for his head. I may be able to provide a house for him but the troubling part is, I cant provide a home. There is a difference between a house and a home. A house is made of wood, a home is made of warmth. A house is inanimate and home is animated. My feet this morning had to leave my house but my heart is still home, it never leaves home. My family is working miles apart this week: my son in Tallahassee, my daughterin-law a few miles away, my grandchildren are playing a few miles south of town, my wife is traveling this week with her job, my mother is at home in Smith Creek. However, they are all close. I cant touch them, but I feel them as strongly and as sure as they were embracing me now. Could it be then that family is not at a place, under a roof, but is in the head and the heart? This is my de nition of family, I call it the King Maurice Version. Someone has well said, Having a place to go is home, having someone to love is family, and having both of these under the same roof is a blessing beyond measure. Ive watched children travel the world over trying to find themselves, their niche, their nook, cranny, alcove, their place of belonging, acceptance, and of course love. Most often they discover it when they come back to their town, their county, and of course their home. Its home where children really nd themselves. I can only imagine the kind of home Kimura had, but I have an idea that he was well respected, adored and held in highest esteem and deeply loved by his family and who knew him. I didnt know him and somehow I dont grieve for the family and friends that did know him, I grieve for those of us who didnt know him but had to hear of him and his story on the internet and wish that we could have known him. So as I close this article and my mind drifts from my desk to my cocoon on Rehwinkel Road. Im wondering, whats for dinner? I think Ill have some pumpkin, sweet potatoes and rice in honor of Kimura. In the words of Mr. Spock from the TV show Star Trek, to all of the readers: Live long and prosper!Langston: On the death of the worlds oldest man, Jiroemon KimuraDear Savvy Senior: Can you offer some tips on protecting seniors from nancial scams? My neighbors elderly mother was recently swindled out of $10,000 and I want to make sure my own mother is protected. Troubled Daughter Dear Troubled, Financial scams that target the elderly continue to be a big problem in the U.S. In fact, its estimated that some 5 million Americans over age 60 are scammed out of roughly 3 billion every year. Here are some tips that can help you spot a scam, and what you can do to protect your mom. SCAM WATCHINGSpotting a scam or a con artist is not always easy to do They range from shady financial advisers to slick-talking telemarketers to professional caregivers and relatives who steal from the very people theyre supposed to be looking after. The most common scams targeting seniors today come in the form of freelunch seminars selling dubious nancial products, tricky/high-pressure telemarketing calls, and endless junk mail peddling free vacation packages, sweepstakes, phony charity fundraisers and more. And, of course, theres the ongoing problem of identity theft, Medicare fraud, door-todoor scams, credit card theft, and Internet and email scams. The best way to spot a scam is to help your mom manage her nances, or at least monitor her accounts. Reviewing her nancial statements each month can alert you to questionable checks, credit card charges or large withdrawals. If, however, she doesnt want you looking at her nancial records, there are other clues. For example: Is she getting a lot of junk mail for contests, free trips, and sweepstakes? Is she receiving calls from strangers offering awards or moneymaking deals? Also notice if her spending habits have changed, if she has complained about being short of money lately, or has suddenly become secretive or defensive about her nances. All these may be signs of trouble. PROTECT YOUR PARENT The most effective way to help protect your mom is to alert her to the different kind of scams out there. The easiest way to do this is by visiting the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force website (stopfraud.gov click on Protect Yourself), where you can get a rundown on the different types of scams making the rounds these days. The Better Business Bureau Scam Stopper site at bbb.org/scam-stopper is another good resource. If your mom doesnt have access to a computer, print out the materials yourself and use them to start a conversation. Its also a good idea to keep close tabs on your moms social circle. Has she acquired any questionable new friends lately, or is she seeing anyone whos giving her advice, nancial or otherwise? Some other tips to protect her include reminding her to never give out her Social Security number or nancial information unless she initiated the contact and knows the institution. Also, see if your mom would be willing to let you sort her mail before she opens it so you can weed out the junk. To reduce the junk mail and/or email she gets, use the Direct Marketing Association consumer opt-out service at dmachoice.org. And to stop credit card and insurance offers, use the Consumer Credit Reporting Industry opt-out service at optoutprescreen.com or call 888-567-8688 they will ask for your moms Social Security number and date of birth. Also, register your moms home and cell phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry ( donotcall.gov, 888-3821222) to reduce telemarketers. And help her get a free copy of her credit report at annualcreditreport.com to make sure she isnt a victim of identity theft. REPORT IT If you suspect your mom has gotten scammed report it to your state securities regulators of ce (see nasaa.org for contact information), or your states Adult Protective Services agency (call 800-6771116 for contact information) that investigates reports of elderly nancial abuse. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of The Savvy Senior book. By Jim MillerThe Savvy Senior How to spot and prevent senior nancial fraudBy RON POLLACKDirector, Families USAAt the end of May, the Medicare Trustees reported that Medicare costs are expected to grow more slowly than was previously expected. One of the positive effects of this trend is that Medicare premiums are also expected to increase more slowly. What does that mean for you and your family? Heres a look at the different types of Medicare premiums. Q: What do people mean by Medicare premiums? A: When people talk about Medicare premiums, theyre often thinking of the Part B premium (Part B primarily covers doctor visits and other outpatient services). For most bene ciaries, this premium is automatically deducted from their Social Security benefit each month. In 2013, most people with Medicare pay a Part B premium of $104.90 a month. Q: What other Medicare premiums exist besides Part B? A: Most people with Medicare do not pay a premium for Medicare Part A (which covers hospital and other inpatient care) because they or their spouse paid enough in Medicare taxes during their working years to qualify for premium-free Part A. If you have a Part D prescription drug plan, you do pay premiums. In 2013, the national average for a Part D monthly premium is $40.18, but Part D premiums vary widely from plan to plan and region to region. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, your plan usually charges an additional premium. Finally, you may have a private Medicare supplemental policy, either from a former employer or private company. The premiums for these policies vary signi cantly. Q: How are Medicare premiums determined? A: By law, the Part B premium must cover 25 percent of Medicares Part B costs. When Medicare costs grow more slowly, so do premiums. Part D premiums are similarly tied to the costs of prescription drugs. Medicare Advantage premiums are determined by a more complicated process, but they also reflect trends in costs. Because Part D and Medicare Advantage plans are run by private companies, premiums can vary a lot. But even so, when health care costs rise more slowly, premiums usually do too. Q: Does everyone pay the same premium? A: If your income is more than $85,000 (for just you, or $170,000 for you and your spouse), you pay an additional Part B premium. How much more depends on your income: People with the highest incomes pay the most. Also, since 2011, the same high-income beneficiaries have paid higher Part D premiums. Part A premiums and Medicare Advantage premiums are not affected by these rules. Q: If I have a limited income, can I get help paying my premiums? A: For people with limited incomes and resources, the Part D Extra Help program covers all or most of their Part D premium, as well as other pharmacy costs. You can nd out if you qualify and apply online at www.socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE. Each state also has Medicare Savings Programs that cover Part B premiums for people with limited incomes. In some cases, these programs also cover other Medicare costs. To learn more, call 1-800-MEDICARE and ask for a referral to your local state health insurance assistance program (SHIP), or go to this website www.familiesusa.org/resources/ program-locator and click on your state. Q: What will happen to Medicare premiums in the future? A: Medicare premiums depend greatly on what happens to health care costs, speci cally Medicare costs, in the future. No one knows for sure if the recent slowdown in Medicare costs will continue. The early indications from the Medicare Trustees report are that the trend should continue for now, and that the 2014 Part B premium will be unchanged from 2013. For anyone with Medicare living on a fixed income and thats most people this is encouraging news.Families USA is the national organization for health care consumers.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 Page 5BBy MARK UNDERWOODHave you ever wondered where novelists, actors or writers nd inspiration for their work? Creativity is not a predetermined way of looking at the worldyou can get inspired by almost anything, anywhere, anytime. All you have to do is be receptive to inspiration. Some people inherit a highly developed sense of creativity or come to it naturally because they were raised in a creative environment. But most of us need some form of inspiration if we want to look at the world with a different perspective. Whatever you call it creativity, thinking outside the box or thinking sideways, creative thinking is all about looking at the world with a different twist, in a slightly different way than you usually do. The good news is that inspiration is all around us. NURTURING CREATIVITY Creativity can be used in many endeavors. In World War II it was used to save lives. J.P. Guilford, a psychologist and father of modern creativity, came up with a game plan to test the creative thinking of bomber pilots in the U.S. Air Force in World War II. He designed a personality test to select the most creative pilots who were most likely to survive being shot down by using their creativity. His question, What would you do with a brick? helped weed out pilots who werent good at thinking sideways or differently in dire circumstances. Try it yourself. Can you come up with 50 uses for a brick in 15 minutes or less? Most of us fine-tune our creative side when we are exposed to new things around us. All of us are in uenced by our experiences whether they are theatrical productions, symphonies, lms, TV or travel. Look for something new to explore or learn. Then hold on to those experiences and use them to inspire you. How did you feel when you listened to a magni cent choir or attended a concert in a park on a summer evening? Unleash those feelings to inspire your creative juices. A MYSTERIOUS PROCESS Creativity is a complex neurological process. Its not as easy to quantify. Theres no such thing as a light bulb over your head announcing a good idea. But scientists have found that they can see ideas with a brain scanner. A few seconds before a person gets an idea, the area of the brain called the superior anterior temporal lights up. No one path inspires creativity, but scientists have found that different parts of the creative process require different types of creative thinking. They have also learned that when we are resting, the superior anterior temporal (behind the ear) tries to send us messages of inspiration. Albert Einstein may have summed up long naps and walks on the beach best when he said, Creativity is the residue of wasted time. TIPS FOR GETTING INSPIRED Most of us are creatures of habit, but you can ramp up your creativity if you try new things. Get in tune with these random in uences: Change your TV watching habits. Most of us enjoy watching the same TV shows, but if you changed things up you might get new ideas. Use your remote to randomly watch programs that arent on your favorites list. Change your Internet activity. Adults spend an average of 29 hours, 15 minutes browsing the Internet each month. Are you using the same web browsers, going to the same shopping or news sites? Try new sites that arent typically on your radar. You may get new ideas that unlock your creativity. Read differently. Push your comfort zone. If you read memoirs or biographies, try reading an historical novel, poetry, science and health or classic literature. Move around the house. Read in a different room or chair. Take a nap. Inner thoughts can give you intriguing new ideas. Get unstuck. Do something simple like taking a walk around the block at a different time of day. You may meet someone new or see nature differently when you change your routine. New things inspire new ideas. And thats an inspiration worth taking a walk for any day.Mark Underwood is a neuroscience researcher, president and co-founder of Quincy Bioscience in Madison, Wis. More articles and tips for healthy aging can be found at: www.TheGoodNewsAboutAging.com.Special to The NewsNearly one-third of adults living in Tallahassee, Wakulla, Quincy and Monticello are family caregivers who could be at risk for heart disease, diabetes, depression and various other physical and emotional maladies as a result of caregiver distress, a potentially dangerous condition brought on by the pressures of caring for a senior loved one. Studies increasingly point to caregiving as a leading stressor for families. In fact, one U.S. study revealed that more than half (52.8 percent) of those caring for individuals with diseases including cancer or Alzheimers had scores indicating depression. In response to this growing issue, the local Home Instead Senior Care of ce has launched a public awareness campaign Family Caregiver Stress Relief at FamilyCaregiverStressRelief.com to help family caregivers determine if they are at risk for distress and to minimize problems before they escalate. Included in the program are two new tools: The Are You a Caregiver Quiz, which is designed to help a family caregiver self-identify and recognize the role of a caregiver, and the Family Caregiver Distress Assessment, adapted for the Home Instead Senior Care network by Dr. Peter Vitaliano of the University of Washington. The assessment allows caregivers to determine their risk for distress and resulting emotional and physical issues, including depression, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. So many spouses and adult children are unaware of their potential risk of caregiver distress because they dont see themselves as caregivers, said Scott Harrell, owner of the local Home Instead Senior Care of ce. These new resources enable them to understand their role, the stresses they may face as a caregiver, and how that stress might lead to more serious health effects. A recent Home Instead Senior Care study discovered that caregivers are prone to hiding their emotions and, as a result, their health suffers. Approximately 74 percent of caregivers who hide their feelings report fatigue, 53 percent report dif culty sleeping, 37 percent report depression, and 30 percent weight gain or loss. Research shows that certain characteristics make family caregivers more vulnerable to caregiver distress, the top being: Gender: Women report more psychological distress than men (however, male caregivers have more negative physiological responses to caregiving, including higher blood sugar and insulin levels, poorer cholesterol and immune function, and obesity). Reluctance to ask for help: Caregivers who wont ask for help are setting themselves up for the kind of exhaustion that can lead to distress. Chronic Illness: Caregivers who are already sick or have existing medical conditions, such as coronary disease, hypertension and cancer, are more vulnerable to additional negative health effects resulting from caregiver stress. Its important for caregivers to understand that stress can impact ones ability to care, said Harrell. If they dont care for themselves, they may put their senior loved ones at risk. Whether its support groups, stress management techniques or respite help, caregivers need to realize the importance of managing their health, too, he said. For more information about the services of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Tallahassee, Wakulla, Quincy and Monticello call 850-297-1897 or visit www.homeinstead.com/233. Home Instead Senior Care was founded in 1994 in Omaha, Neb., by Lori and Paul Hogan, the Home Instead Senior Care network is the worlds largest provider of non-medical in-home care services for seniors, with nearly 1,000 independently owned and operated franchises providing in excess of 45 million hours of care throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Switzerland, Germany, South Korea, Finland, Austria, Italy, Puerto Rico, the Netherlands and Mexico. Local Home Instead Senior Care of ces employ more than 65,000 caregivers worldwide who provide basic support services assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), personal care, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, incidental transportation and shopping which enable seniors to live safely and comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible.

At Home Instead Senior Care network, its relationship before task, while continuing to provide superior quality service that enhances the lives of seniors everywhereSpecial to The NewsFor Americans 65 and older, falling down can be the worst thing to happen to them, according to statistics from the National Council on Aging: One in three seniors experiences a signi cant fall each year Every 18 seconds, a senior is admitted into an emergency room after losing balance and hitting the ground Every 35 minutes, an elderly person dies from a fall -the leading cause of death for seniors The projected cost in health-care expenses for 2020 due to fall-related injuries in the United States is $55 billion, says Karen Peterson, a therapist with multiple certifications, and author of Move With Balance: Healthy Aging Activities for Brain and Body (www.MoveWithBalance.org). Shes also the founder and director of Giving Back, a nonpro t organization that grows and spreads programs that support senior health. Its important for seniors to keep moving and learning, thats what helps improve balance and coordination, and even helps build new neural pathways, says Peterson, who emphasizes the cognitive importance to her workout programs. But if youre rather frail, or just very fearful of falling, youre less likely to get up and move around. These activities bene t all seniors, from 55 to 105. Peterson says a fun, social program of games and activities that include exercises speci cally designed for seniors helps them address multiple issues, including those that tend to keep seniors sedentary which only lessens their strength and balance. Last year, her program was independently evaluated from Hawaiis Department of Heath, which found a statistically signi cant reduction in falls from seniors 38 percent. It also won the MindAlert Award from the American Society on Aging. Seniors of all ages need to continually work on improving their balance, coordination, strength, vision and cognitive skills. When they do, theyre less likely to fall and more able to enjoy life. Peterson suggests these moves, which address many different areas of the body: The cross-crawl: After various light warmups, begin with the basic cross-crawl, which focuses on the fundamentals of balance. March in place, lifting the knees high. At the same time, reach across and touch the lifted knee with the opposite hand or elbow; alternate and keep going. This can be done sitting, standing or lying down. Once any of these exercises are mastered, Peterson says, participants should continue to challenge themselves. For even greater balance work, and to exercise the vestibular system, close your eyes and count backwards from 100 by threes. Its not fun if youre not conquering a challenge, she says. Her book includes several challenges for each exercise. Forward toe-touch dancer: To improve motor skills, physical coordination and cognition, there are many dance exercises that are appropriate for seniors. If needed, use a chair for assistance. Place your feet shoulder-width apart. Now, simultaneously extend your left foot and your right arm forward. Keep your left toes pointed down, touching the oor; or for more dif culty, maintain the toes a few inches off the oor. Repeat this move with your left arm and right foot. Hold each pose for several seconds, and increase holding time. Sensory integration the arrow chart: Look at an arrow chart and call out the direction indicated by each individual symbol. Then, thrust your arms in that direction; in other words, say and do what the arrow indicates. For an additional challenge, do the opposite of what the arrow indicates. Side-step walk: Walk sidestepping bring your right foot across the left and step down three to ve inches away from the left foot, ankles crossed. The closer the feet, the harder it is to balance. Alternate crossing the foot in front and then behind the other foot as you move along; repeat several times, then do the same with opposite feet. As a bonus challenge, try a reading exercise from a vision card, designed for stimulating the brain/ visual system, while sidestepping. The cat jump: This activity is practice in case of a fall; the muscle memory of the movement will be etched in your body. Bend your knees in a squat. Jump a little off the ground with both feet, and land softly, like a cat, without jarring your body. Repeat until you are con dent in your ability to prevent a spill. Research shows that most falls are preventable, Peterson says. These and other exercises, performed regularly, are a great way to achieve safety and a revitalized lifestyle.Karen Peterson is founder and director of Giving Back, a nonpro t organization dedicated to improving the lives of elders through intergenerational mentoring.

On the mat, Im getting stronger. There are postures I can do that I couldnt do before, like handstand, a crazy arm balance where you balance your body on both hands with your legs suspended up in the air. I love doing the arm balances because I believed that once I could do them, it would prove to everyone, to me, that I was a real yogi. The thing is, I can do a lot of the postures now, and no one has showed up at my front door with my of cial youre-a-realyogi card to carry around in my wallet and ash at unsuspecting bystanders. I guess thats because it was never a title to be issued in the rst place. Come to think about it, yoga isnt about the acrobatics at all. Actually, I think its more to do with peeling onions. Yep, you read correctly. Yoga is all about onion peeling. If youve ever peeled an onion you know it has several layers to it, before you get to the good part worth eating. Well, we have layers, too. We cant see them, but years of struggling, of being dissatis ed with our lives for all the various reasons, has subconsciously caused us to put on protective layers, a sort of shield from the outside world. We overeat, we become emotionally detached, we stop taking risks, and spend much of our time, if not at work, sinking into the comfort of our couches, unchallenged and unful lled drained. The layers were meant to protect us, but actually, theyve done more harm than good. They weigh us down, trap us. We get stuck, lost, and often times depressed. Our relationships fall apart, our lives exhaust us, and our health deteriorates. The onion needs peeling. Yoga does that for us. The more we go to the mat, the more we shed layers of ourselves, the excess that we dont need. It may be extra body weight, it may be emotional baggage, or if youre like me, both, but over time, with every drop of sweat, every burning muscle, every time we replace I cant with I can, rooting ourselves deeper into the posture and on the mat, we slowly peel away another layer of our onion, until, pretty soon, we get to the good part of who we are. That, my friends, is why we practice. Its the awakening, or at least, the start of one, the point where we shed our egos and our true practice begins. This is when we start truly living our lives. Its this presence, this sort of awakening, which led me to writing combining my journey on the mat with what I love to do. Maybe your awakening wont lead you to writing, but I bet it leads you to something you love doing, something you were meant to be doing. Doesnt that make it worth squeezing into your yoga pants and holding that pose just a little longer than you thought you could? I totally think so. So, for this, I need no of cial card. I just need to say I will a little more often than I want to, trying the stuff that challenges me, and keep coming to the mat.Dolly Moody is a proffessional Kripalu Yoga teacher at Studio 88 Dance in Crawfordville.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comHEALTH & FITNESS Now that the weather is getting warmer, a lot of people are opting to exercise outdoors. This is always a great way to change your routine, learn a new sport or just get some fresh air. There are so many options for exercising outdoors. You can run, walk, swim, kayak or canoe alone or with friends. A walk or run on the beach is a great way to burn some calories and soak up some sun. You can play team sports and get your socialization and exercise at the same time! Cross t is always more interesting outdoors, too! While exercising outdoors is fun and usually safe, you need to be careful to stay hydrated while you are out. Water or sports drinks are a great way to keep yourself going while you are having fun. Signs of dehydration include but are not limited to excessive thirst, headache, dizziness and dry mouth. Be sure to drink water or sports drinks on a regular basis the whole time you are outside. Sometimes we get to having such a good time, we forget to hydrate until dehydration has already occurred. Always err on the side of safety if you or anyone you are with experience these or other symptoms, go indoors and get cool and hydrated immediately. So, get outside and enjoy the sun and fresh air. Try a new sport or activity. You might just nd your new passion. At the least, you will get moving and burn some calories and have fun!Gena Davis is a CFT at Body-Tek 24-Hour Fitness Center in Crawfordville. She can be reached at (850) 926-2348. GET FITBy GENA DAVIS YOGA FOR LIFEBy DOLLY MOODY More time on the mat means more layers peeled awayGet outside and get some exerciseSpecial to The NewsEarly summer weather can provide the ultimate motivation to get outside and be active. The sun is shining, nature is in full blossom, and coats and earmuffs are no longer essential. Summer can give people a certain zest for tness, but sometimes temperatures can turn good intentions into a sweltering mess. Incorporating new habits and precautions into your warm weather workouts can keep you safe, motivated, and cool. TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) Club, the nonpro t weight-loss support organization, offers the following tips to make the most of your summer tness plans: 1. Fill up on fruit Water-heavy fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and grapes are a great way to boost energy and replenish uids lost after a workout. Containing more than 80 percent water, these fruits are easily digestible in the summer heat and are a tasty way to keep hydrated and satis ed. Eating them frozen also makes a refreshing summer treat. 2. Reroute for optimal shade If your usual running, walking, or cycling route makes you an easy target for sun exposure, opt for a shadier course. Road Runners Club of America features running routes around the country on their website, www.rrca. org. Weather.com also offers local parks forecasts and a tness comfort index by the hour ideal for determining the best time of day to exercise. 3. Incorporate the season into your routine Make summer chores part of your tness plan for time-saving and warm weather-friendly exercise. Washing the car, gardening, taking the dog for a walk, and mowing the lawn, are all activities on your to-do list that burn calories as a bonus. 4. Pay attention to your heart rate The hotter it is, the harder your body has to work so if you normally run at a 9-minute-mile pace, when the temperature hits 90 degrees, you may nd yourself having to slow down to a 10-minute-mile. Using a heart-rate monitor can help ensure that you arent pushing yourself too hard, which can lead to heat exhaustion and strokes. Deluxe heart monitors keep track of not only your heart, but also your speed, distance, pace, and calories burned. Models with fewer features can cost as little as $50. 5. Take the path less paved Walking, running, or cycling on dirt or gravel paths can keep the body signi cantly cooler than paved paths. Asphalt and concrete tend to radiate heat and re ect the suns rays, making you feel hotter. Running near bodies of water also has a noticeable cooling effect. 6. Slow it down without sacri ce To keep safe without giving up calorie burn, perform your regular cardio routine at a slightly slower pace, and then add in 30-second speed bursts every three to ve minutes. Youll maintain the same bene ts and burn even more calories without exerting extreme effort the entire workout. TOPS Club is the original weight-loss support and wellness education organization.

But this exceedingly high number is just the beginning of the problem, because multiple studies indicate that roughly 70 percent of back surgeries fail, says Jesse Cannone, a back-pain expert and author of The 7-Day Back Pain Cure (www.losethebackpain.com). Its so common that theres a name for it failed back surgery syndrome, or FBSS. One recent study monitored 1,450 patients in the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation database; half of those on disability endured back surgery, half did not. After two years, only 26 percent of those who had surgery returned to work. Additionally, 41 percent of those who had surgery saw a drastic increase in painkiller use. The success rate for the most common treatments is pathetically low, so its no surprise people often struggle years or decades with back pain, with few ever nding lasting relief, Cannone says. The majority of back surgeries are not only ineffective, but most could have been completely avoided. He reviews seven common mistakes made by back-pain sufferers: Continuing a treatment that doesnt work: One of Cannones clients experienced 70 treatments with a chiropractor, resulting in no relief. Heres a general rule to follow, he says. If you see no improvement after going through a three-month period of treatment, consider making a change. Failing to solve the problem the rst time: Take pain seriously the rst time. Cannones own mother suffered a signi cant bout of back pain, which subsided after a few days. But two years later it came back, and the second time was so debilitating she couldnt work. If she had taken the rst bout more seriously, she probably would have prevented the second, more debilitating bout. Thinking youre too healthy or t to have back pain: Staying in shape is always a good idea, but it does not make you invulnerable. People who train their body can be more prone to back pain because they often push their bodys limits, says Cannone, who has been a personal tness trainer since 1998. Treating only the symptoms: Cortisone shots, anti-in ammatory drugs, ultrasound and electrical stimulation only address pain symptoms. You may get rid of the pain, but the problem causing the pain will persist if not addressed, he says. If you want lasting relief, you must address the underlying causes, and its never just one. Not understanding that back pain is a process: In most cases, back pain, neck pain and sciatica take weeks, months or even years to develop; the problem may exist for quite a while before the sufferer notices it, except for rare one-time trauma incidents like automobile accidents. Most people sit for hours at a time, yet the body was developed for diverse movements throughout the day. Think of a car with steering out of alignment; eventually, tires will wear down unevenly and there will be a blow out, Cannone says. The same is true with your body. Just as the damage was a process, recovery is the same and can be timeintensive. Believing there are no more options left : Not only does back pain hurt and prove physically debilitating; it also tries the morale and determination of the patient. A sufferer can run the gamut of treatments. But, often, it takes a cocktail of treatments that address all of the underlying causes. Remember, you cant really treat the root of pain until you know whats causing it, Cannone says. In so many cases, this is precisely the problem. Failing to take control: Doctors and other specialists are ultimately limited to what they know and what theyre used to. If you have a debilitating back problem, it should be among your top priorities to learn all you can about it, and how to x it. Get a second, third and fourth opinion if treatment isnt working; try out alternative therapies, and consider a healthy mix of treatment. Most importantly, take control its your back, your body and only you can heal it, with help from others. I may be critical of how most handle back pain, but thats because Ive proven to patients that there are aws in the traditional approaches as well as more effective alternatives, Cannone says. I also feel that Im offering a hopeful message because of my high success rate in helping to cure the back pain from my clients. Jesse Cannone is a personal trainer since 1998, specializing in finding root causes for chronic pain, and finding solutions with a multidiscipline approach. Cannone publishes the free email newsletter Less Pain, More Life, read by more than 400,000 worldwide.7 mistakes back-pain su erers make Cool summer workout tips Special to The NewsSkin cancer is a lifestyle disease, affecting young women, older men and everyone in between. But there is good news: because skin cancer is chie y lifestyle disease, it is also highly preventable. 1. Seek the shade especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m when the sun is strongest. An extra rule of thumb is the shadow rule. If your shadow is shorter than you are, the suns harmful UV radiation is stronger; if your shadow is longer, UV radiation is less intense. 2. Do not burn. A persons risk for melanoma doubles if he or she has had ve or more sunburns at any point in life. 3. Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths. UV radiation from tanning machines is known to cause cancer in humans, and the more time a person has spent tanning indoors, the higher the risk. Those who make just four visits to a tanning salon per year can increase their risk for melanoma by 11 percent, and their risk for the two most common forms of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, by 15 percent. 4. Cover up with clothing including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses. Clothing can be your most effective form of sun protection, so make the most of it with densely woven and bright-or dark-colored fabrics, which offer the best defense. 5. Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant, broad spectrum (UVA/ UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. 6. Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. 7. Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens may be used on babies over the age of six months, but they should also be protected by shade and clothing. Children are very sensitive to ultraviolet radiation just one severe sunburn in childhood doubles the chances of developing melanoma later in life. 8. Examine your skin head-to-toe every month. While self-exams shouldnt replace the important annual skin exam performed by a physician, they offer the best chance of detecting the early warning signs of skin cancer. If you notice any change in an existing mole or discover a new one that looks suspicious, see a physician immediately. 9. See your physician every year for a professional skin exam.Skin cancer is preventable, reduce your risk

Page 12B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 27, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The News This exhibition showcases the artwork of a group of eight talented and celebrated women. Mary Apple, Rosemary Ferguson, Nina Allen Freeman, Rene Lynch, Fran Mathis, Judith Nable, Vivian Sherlock and Pam Talley comprise a long standing collaborative, meeting regularly to support and nurture each other. They share ideas and advice much like the time honored tradition of the quilting bee which provided an opportunity for women to gather and socialize while expressing their artistic capacities. In centuries past, the quilting bee was one of the few accepted social and political outlets for those who could not otherwise overtly express their opinions. Quilting bees also gave women a focused arena to discuss their creativity while exploring their purposes, thoughts, and experiences in producing their art. Though this particular group of women is primarily focused on painting, not quilting, the spirit of their meetings is much the same. With insight, humor and honesty, these women discuss and critique each others works in progress, offering suggestions and possible solutions to problems. They encourage risk taking and experimentation and share information about new materials and techniques. Included in the Womens Work exhibition are twenty three watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings, each with a perspective and personality as unique as the woman who created it. While each artist retains her individuality, the nature of this collaborative process strengthens not only their painting but their friendship as well. This exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily inside the Tallahassee Regional Airport. The exhibition is curated by the Council on Culture & Arts Arts in Public Places program on behalf of the City of Tallahassee. For more information about this program, visit www.cocanet.org.
