Carter By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net County commissioners voted 4-1 on Monday, July 15, to repeal the countys wetlands ordinance. County Commissioner Richard Harden brought up the issue with a recommendation that staff schedule a public hearing to repeal the ordinance and to defer to state requirements of wetlands protection. At the previous commission meeting on June 17, Chairman Randy Merritt had brought forward a proposal to allow variances within the ordinances 75-foot buffer zone if, and only if, that was the only option available for landowners to use their property. In that case, Merritt had said, he wanted to set up a procedure that would allow for a variance. It sparked much heated conversation from those on both sides for or against Merritts proposal. This time, however, it was Harden who brought the wetlands back to the table, and with the intention to lessen restrictions even more. He opened the discussion with an explanation for his proposal. At the last meeting we talked about making revisions to the wetlands ordinance. But, I got to reading about it and found that there are many laws already on the books to govern the wetlands in our county. Harden had attached ve documents, which spanned over 70 pages as evidence to support his claim. What Im proposing is that we revert back to what we were going before we adopted the ordinance in 2010, he said. Its really a property rights issue for me as well. The repeal would require changes to two county documents: Revision would have to be made to both the comprehensive plan and the actual ordinance. Id like for us to repeal both of those, Harden said, and with that, he made his motion and Commissioner Jerry Moore offered a second. Merritt asked for clari cation as to whether one had to be done before the other or if they both could be done simultaneously. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said that the two can travel concurrently. She added that, because the comp plan requires more public hearings, it would have to be pushed ahead slightly. However, if the board voted to go forward, the nal amendment of the comp plan to remove the 75-foot buffer requirement could be heard at the same meeting as the public hearing to repeal the ordinance.Turn to Page 5A By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netFormer director of the Senior Center R.H. Carter was honored with a naming ceremony in which the senior citizens building was named the R.H. Carter Senior Citizens Complex. As executive director of the senior center for 15 years, Carter oversaw the fundraising and construction of the center as well as the construction of next-door senior apartments. At the ceremony on Friday, July 12, said that the biggest dangers facing seniors are loneliness and isolation. The senior center, he said, is place where seniors can have a party every day. Current senior center director Maurice Langston called Carter a great man. R.H. Carter is a great man because he has a vision of a better life for seniors in Wakulla County, he said. Looking around the building, Langston added: Were standing here in his vision. I feel like Im the luckiest guy in the world to have served here 15 years, Carter said.PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDENSenior Center Director Maurice Langston, along with Shelly Homan, present R.H.

As far as she knows, it is what Dorthy White speculates prompted a phone call all the way from New York, from a magazine called Cooking Light wanting to know if they could set up a time to come down to Florida to visit Whites restaurant, Ouzts Too. The page in this months issue of the magazine features a speci c dish, consisting of Cajun rice and grilled shrimp and is just one of the many completely homemade dishes on the restaurants menu. We pride ourselves on our food, White says. Everything from the chips that we serve, to the salsa, to the hushpuppies and even all the sauces are made from scratch. She explains that you wont nd any jarred oysters on the premises, as the crew at Outzts Too doesnt shuck any of the oysters which come to the restaurant via refrigerated truck straight from Apalachicola until they are ordered by a customer. The restaurants diverse menu includes everything from mullet dip to fried oreos, poppers, sh and steaks and its always changing. If somebody suggests something that I think will go over well, then well try it, says White. If its received well then Ill put it on the menu.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comCrowd turns out for workshop on airportBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla Welcome Center in Panacea was packed with standing room only for a workshop on alternatives for the airport. The workshop, held Thursday, July 11, discussed numerous options including realigning the runway slightly, and paving what is currently a grass strip. Jon Sewell, consultant with Kimley Horn and Associates, said there were four choices for the county airport: 1. Do nothing; 2. return the airstrip to Tarpine; 3. go forward with improvements; or 4. relocate the airport. Sewell noted that relocating the airport appears to be unlikely as there are few sites in the county that would meet requirements and, additionally, it would take many years to go through the permitting process to locate an airport. There is one site that would appear to be feasible as far as siting, and thats the property in the northeast part of the county, south of Woodville, near the state prison. But Sewell noted the drawback is that it is so close to Leon County. One of the main things being discussed is putting down asphalt on the runway which Sewell noted would get airplanes off the ground quicker and would, therefore, improve the safety of the airport. Other options being discussed are adding Thangars, a fuel farm, a helicopter pad for LifeFlight, and turning the old Hamaknockers restaurant at the end of the runway into a satellite of ce for the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office. Sewell said Sheriff Charlie Creel was excited about the idea of a satellite of ce and that it would improve law enforcement on that side of the county. There would be purchase of some property on the Ochlockonee Bay-side of the airport, and putting the land in a conservation easement to allay fears of residents around the airport that operations would expand into that area. Sewell stressed that plans do not call for acquisition of property on Surf Road. There was considerable controversy last year after trees were cut on a parcel of land off Surf Road and a sign went up saying it was part of an airport expansion. Residents in the area expressed concern not only about the unsightliness of the cut area, but the increased noise from airplane operations. There is some stalwart opposition to any public money being spent on the airport, with many seeing it as taxpayers supporting a rich mans hobby. Others have questioned the real value that the small airport gives to the county, and whether Wakulla needs an airport at all. Supporters contend that the airport is important in bringing visitors to the area. The airport, which is little more than a grass eld, was originally sited in 1963. In the 1980s, the Tarpine y-in subdivision was developed. One estimate of airport operations put the number which represents take-offs, landings, y-overs and other at around 3,600 per year.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 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. By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net On Thursday, July 11 at the Wakulla County Extension Office, Mary Register of Volunteer Florida, together with Joe Taylor of Franklins Promise Coalition, led discussion aimed towards bettering communities. About 30 community leaders showed up for the meeting, most of whom are associated with the countys youth coalition. Register told of Dr. John McKnight, a professor at Northwestern University and what he and his team had come up with in terms of community development. Register explained that McKnight began to study volunteering in America and that, after a while, he began to notice a negative trend. She explained that volunteers those people who have every intention to help end up doing something that she called parachuting, which means that the volunteers go in to an area, help clean up a neighborhood, plant owers or paint a building, pick up trash, deliver Christmas presents or food, etc. and then they leave. Dr. McKnight noticed that over time, in doing this, people in those communities that were receiving help, came to believe that they were not capable of xing anything themselves, said Register. They began to believe that help almost always had to come from the outside, and it had to have a boat load of money come with it. According to Register, McKnights opinion was that it is not supposed to be that way. He calls those communities incompetent neighborhoods, says Register. On the ip side of the coin, she said, McKnight looked at the effect that had on those volunteers. McKnights theory is that they lose hope because they go back to that community the following year and the owers they planted are dead, more Christmas presents are still needed, people are still hungry, etc. That gets a little hard, according to Register, because at some point you have to feel as if youre making a difference. After realizing this, McKnight began to build a platform for substantive community growth based on neighboring or Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). Register explained that ABCD is a strategy for sustainable community driven development with a help up, not a hand out mentality when it comes to improving the places in which we live and work. The strategy works to build on the assets that are already found in the community and mobilizes individuals, associations and institutions to come together to build on their assets rather than just concentrate on their needs. ABCD seeks to revert back to times when those in need would refer to their neighbors rather than feel as if they are forced to go to professionals. According to McKnight, the tendency for people today is to believe that their neighbor does not have the skills to help them; therefore they must seek (and pay) a professional to do so. Attendees of the meeting were encouraged to share their individual strengths what they were good at, where they were successful in the community, coupled with their interests what they would do to better the community even if money were no object. They shared strengths and interests that included empowerment, nutrition, jobs, community collaboration, housing, youth and family activities and animal care. From there, Joe Taylor explained that, on one hand, there was a diverse amount of strengths and interests present, and on the other hand, that in each person there were valuable resources that might be available for another resources that could help them further their goals and projects. Together, Taylor and Register explained the idea that realizing others unique niches while building relationships with those in the community, would help to build sustainability. They iterated that help wasnt needed from others parachuting in from outside, but rather, that a healthier approach taken from within a neighborhood, town or a county could bene t both sides of the coin volunteers as well as those seeking (or not seeking, just needing) help. After the discussion, coalition members got together to talk about community events such Empty Bowls and Operation Santa with aims to reach consensus about whether or not either would be possible this year. Both are schedule to move forward as volunteers committed their time and efforts and the $500 budget needed for the purchasing of bisque bowls and paints for Empty Bowls was given the go-ahead, while $500 was also approved for the furthering of Operation Santa.Staff ReportCommissioner Richard Hardens Form 6 was received by the Commission on Ethics on June 28, well before the July 1 deadline, and is now viewable on the COEs website. (Hardens nancial information was not available last week when The News ran a front page story.) Hardens disclosure reveals a net worth of $79,266. The commissioner lists the value of his Sopchoppy home and three city lots as about $44,000 along with a 13.5 acre chunk of land valued at $67,500 and a state deferred compensation of $7,800 under the asset designation. Hardens liabilities include his $37,500 home mortgage and three personal loans totaling about $13,000. His primary source of income is listed at $34,785 from the Florida Department of Corrections and his secondary comes from Wakulla County in the amount of $31,500. Harden was the third county commissioner to le the rst was Commissioner Jerry Moore who led on June 12 followed by Commissioner Howard Kessler on June 16. Commissioners Ralph Thomas and Randy Merritt both led on July 1.Special to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce is offering a $600 cash reward for information that leads to the arrest of the subject who shot Zeke the German shepherd mix that was found badly injured along Shadeville Highway in June. A passing motorist called Wakulla County Animal Control on June 3 and reported the injured animal. Zeke was shot in both back legs and left to die. Anyone with information about the dog shooting is asked to contact the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce at 745-7100 and request a detective from the Criminal Investigations Division to investigate. Two concerned citizens have contributed a total of $600 that will be given to anyone who comes forward and provides the information that leads to the arrest of the dog shooter. Wakulla Animal Control Of cer Bonnie Brinson has been caring for the animal during his recovery period which has included emergency surgery. Since that time, Zeke has attended a Florida Cabinet meeting, met Attorney General Pam Bondi and has continued to gain weight. One of his back legs has begun to recover while the other was too damaged to repair. Amputation remains a possibility. Zeke is estimated to be seven months old and Wakulla Animal Control hopes to eventually adopt him out. He is scheduled for some orthopedic surgery with Dr. Norm Griggs at Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital in Crawfordville. He is getting better, but he was in bad shape, said Wakulla Animal Control Director Ivanhoe Carroll. He loves his toys. I cant believe someone would leave this animal along the side of the road to die, said Brinson. He loves to play with the other dogs. Surely there is someone out there who has the information the sheriffs of ce needs to bring justice and the compassion to know that you have brought closure to this animal cruelty case. $600 reward o ered for information in shooting of ZekeSPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe dog, Zeke, recovering from his wounds.Volunteers discuss community sustainability WILLIAM SNOWDENAbout 30 community volunteers showed up to discuss bettering communities at the extension of ce on Thursday, July 11. Hardens financial information online Two juveniles help locate missing man Special to The NewsTwo Crawfordville juveniles assisted the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce locate a missing 89-year-old man Sunday, July 14, after the mans wife contacted law enforcement that her husband had disappeared, according to Sheriff Charlie Creel. The 70-year-old wife contacted law enforcement and reported that her 89-year-old husband disappeared from their home while she was sleeping. Deputies began to search an area of Cayuse Drive off Spring Creek Highway and discovered Trevor Mathis, 9, and his friend, Robert Hancock, 8, in the area. The two boys told law enforcement that an elderly man was walking without his shirt on and went to an unoccupied home. Lt. Sherrell Morrison and Sgt. Ryan Muse discovered the missing man disoriented and leaning up against a railing behind the home. The man told law enforcement that he was at home but could not get inside. Lt. Morrison gave the man a bottle of water and brought him back to a family member for transport to his home and wife where Wakulla EMS checked his welfare. Lt. Morrison explained to the wife that the man could be tted for a Project Lifesaver wrist band that would make it easier for law enforcement to track him in the event that he walked away from home in the future. Trevor and Robert were commended by Lt. Morrison for their helpful information and being aware of their surroundings. Deputies Ward Kromer and David Pienta also assisted.

Carter deserves honor of Senior Center naming READERS WRITE: By WILLIAM SNOWDENThere are few individuals who have had the impact on Wakulla County that R.H. Carter has. Every day in Wakulla County, scores of senior citizens eat and overcome loneliness and isolation because of R.H. Carter. The former director of the Wakulla County Senior Center, who retired after 15 years in the post, is the rst to point out that he didnt do it alone he will credit the board of directors and others for achievements. But there are few, if any, people who have the vision, planning, and fundraising abilities of Carter. A decade and half ago, he took over a too-small center with tenuous nances and oversaw the construction of the current facility, plus the senior apartments on the adjoining property. He had a vision for an adult day care center, and is dedicated to seeing that come about. Current senior center director Maurice Langston calls Carter a great man and attributes that to Carters vision of a better life for Wakullas senior citizens. Carter, at the ceremony last week, commented that Its not the building thats important its the people, the faces in this room. R.H. Carter deserves the honor of what he built being named for him.William Snowden is editor of The Wakulla News.Editor, The News: We live on Surf Rd. about one-half mile from the Tarpine landing strip. When we bought our home 20 years ago, we knew the strip was used by privately owned small aircraft. We are entertained watching the different aircraft both xed wing and experimental that y over Ochlockonee Bay. Most pilots take off and land with little noticeable effect. However this may be ending. I have some questions for our commissioners as they move forward with improving the county airport. 1. The entire airport area is in a oodplain, meaning FEMA has deemed this property susceptible to ooding. According to the Airports Desk Reference chapter 12, To meet Executive Order 11988, Floodplains, and the U.S. Department of Transportation Order 5650.2, Floodplain Management and Protection, all airport development actions must avoid the oodplain, if a practicable alternative exists. If no practicable alternative exists, actions in a oodplain must be designed to minimize adverse impact to the oodplains natural and bene cial values. The design must also minimize the potential risks for ood-related property loss and impacts on human safety, health, and welfare. Further information can be read on the website, http://www.faa.gov/ airports/environmental/ environmental_desk_ref/ media/desk_ref_chap12. pdf. 2. Between 2006 and 2013, the county has spent more than $119,000 on the airstrip. That cost comes from the countys budget and breaks down into three fund areas: $65,000 from a general fund; $38,000 from airport grants; $16,000 from other funding. Is THIS the best use of public monies? 3. No concrete data has been collected regarding the planes and people using the existing landing strip. How many planes land and take off? How many users are Tarpine residents? How many users are Wakulla County residents? How many users reside outside Wakulla County? The answer I get when I inquire is that there is not funding to hire someone to gather this data. How can you justify more public money being spent without knowing who bene ts? 4. User fees are not being collected. In a spreadsheet laid out by the county administration, October 2012 to December 2012, ZERO fees were collected; $120 was collected in January; February to April 2013 ZERO fees were collected. Why would you think anything is going to change? 5. According to Wakulla County of cials, state DOT said it would fund the removal of trees in the landing strips guide path. When the trees were removed, DOT said there was a misunderstanding and the $16,435 was the responsibility of the county. Tourist Development Council funds were used to cut the offending trees. How many additional tourists will arrive in Wakulla because of these improvements? 6. Once the airstrip is finished, it will be the responsibility of Wakulla County to pay for the upkeep. Talk to Franklin County and nd out how successful THAT has been! Every year, more and more public funds are required to maintain their facilities. What is the great draw that folks will want to ock to the Tarpine landing strip? 7. Just how many pilots will want to hangar their airplanes on a coastal airport? Anyone who lives in the area knows just how bad it gets when we have heavy rains like TS Debby or the recent spate of rain. Oh, thats right it is going to be paved so that everyone in the area will experience more ooding! At the airport meeting, Jon Sewell speci cally said, The airport layout plan omits environmental issues. Surely this needs to be addressed. I was disappointed that at this meeting, Mr. Sewell allowed no questions from the group. He purports to want input i.e., the survey conducted online which had no real value since it was not scienti cally collected and there was no standard deviation. Lets work together to preserve the Ochlockonee Bay estuary for fishers, crabbers, oystermen and women and even those pilots that enjoy buzzing my roof top. If the residents of Wakulla County want and need an airport, put together a team of interested citizens to explore the options options that are not in wetlands or oodplains and provide a facility which MIGHT be scally self-suf cient and not a burden on Florida taxpayers. Val LaHart Ochlockonee BayEditor, The News: In recent weeks there have been some letters submitted to the editor concerning the contrast between protecting the wetlands environment and protecting the individual property rights of property owners within Wakulla County. Although I believe it is important to protect and preserve the environment I am rmly on the side of protecting property rights and am submitting this letter to inform citizens of my views concerning our local Wetlands Ordinance and why I believe we need to repeal our local ordinance and revert back to the state management requirements we were following prior to the revision of the ordinance in 2010. Within our county is 736 square miles of land which equates to approximately 471,040 acres. The Apalachicola National Forest has 171,000 acres within our county borders. The St. Marks Wildlife Refuge has a total acreage of 70,000 acres covering three counties with an estimated 40,000 acres within our county borders. Wakulla Springs State park encompasses approximately 6,000 acres. The Ochlockonee River State Park has 392 acres. This totals 217,392 acres of woodlands and wetlands within our county that is owned by the government and protected for future generations in a perpetual conservation easement that cannot be infringed upon by anyone regardless of local ordinances. This does not include the many thousands of acres that are owned by the St. Joe Company. This also doesnt include the Wakulla Springs Protection Zone in the northern portion of county that has additional development density restrictions that protect the groundwater of the springs. The remaining land within our county is all the area we have left to provide places to live, work, and drive the economy of our county. The local wetlands ordinance that has been in effect since 2010 has extensive environmental restrictions that have prevented property owners from having full use of their property. Speci cally it lists a buffer zone of 75 feet along any river, creek, pond, canal, body of water, or even dry land within a certain low elevation from being impacted or utilized in anyway. This means that if you have a 100 foot lot along a canal you are restricted from building within 75 feet of the canal even if there is an existing home already built on adjacent lots. It also applies throughout the county that, according to our Wetlands Ordinance, 75 feet of all property that is along a body of water is restricted from being impacted by building or removing vegetation. Also the current wetlands ordinance does not have a grandfather clause for those who own property along a body of water and maintain that vegetation to the water property line as many people do. That is a violation of the county ordinance as it is written. Another example is concerning what is referred as isolated wetlands. If you have a large tract of land not near an open body of water but a portion of your land is low elevation that holds water for a period of time after rain then that area of your property is considered an isolated wetland according to the ordinance and you are restricted from using it or even using within 75 feet of it according to the ordinance. Recently The U.S. Supreme court in a landmark property rights decision overturned the Florida Supreme Court and sided with the Florida property owner in a similar wetlands dispute between the property owner and Water Management District. To date Wakulla County has lost every legal challenge to our Wetlands Ordinance to the extent of over $600,000 in paid settlements. We are one of only two counties in the state with a local wetlands ordinance which results in the county being sued instead of the state and water management district. The reason our county has lost each legal challenge is because state law requires the regulating agency to have a soil scientist on staff to delineate and determine what the wetlands are. We do not have the quali ed staff at the county level to do this and to defend our county ordinance. The Wetlands Ordinance that we have was not written according to environmental science and best management practices. It was originated by a very small group of citizens within a local environmental activist organization and written according to the personal preference of the same very small group of citizens who became a part of the committee process that drafted the ordinance. Ever since then the 75-foot buffer zone regulation has been used as an indirect way to create a conservation easement on citizens private property without their consent. As a result of this ordinance citizens who own property along any body of water or isolated wetland have been denied the use of 75 foot or more of their property. In several cases around the county this has caused some property owners with small lots to have no use at all of their property even though they are still paying taxes and in some cases a mortgage. In other cases when the owner attempted to sell the property they couldnt nd a buyer due to the 75 foot buffer zone setback requirement. I believe the wetlands in our county that are the most sensitive have already been identi ed and purchased by the state and federal government and are suf ciently protected. What I have proposed to fellow county commissioners is to repeal the local Wetlands Ordinance and to defer back to state management requirements for protection of wetlands in Wakulla County. This is what the county was doing prior to the ordinance and is consistent with what 65 other counties are doing. This will suf ciently protect our wetlands and remove liability of the county from future legal challenges and will above all restore the use of the land within the 75 foot buffer zone to the property owner who is paying the taxes for the property.

White says that, back then, her family came from Gainesville looking for work. At that time, she says, Newport was the fth largest town in the state. My daddy rode the woods on a horse as a woods rider, she explains, before her parents later moved on to Tallahassee and opened a grocery store. White had cousins in St. Marks who she and her family visited often. She remained in Tallahassee for many years, working as an accountant for the state. About eight years ago, her cousin had come to her letting her know that Ouzts Too was going out of business. He said, Well, why dont you buy it? So she did. I bought it to keep it open, says White, adding that back then it was an old biker bar, but that she had plans to build it up as a family place. And thats what Ive done so far, she says. Upon selling her the restaurant, the previous owners had asked that she not change the interior. But she says they didnt even have to ask, because she didnt want to. Aside from some repairs and maintenance requirements, the restaurant has remained the same throughout the years. According to White, travelers seem to be appreciating the back roads more. In a fast paced world, some people seem to prefer the sleepy country roads to the high-speed interstates and highways which is good for businesses like hers and counties like Wakulla, she says. A passion for Wakulla County and its history drives White to be involved in the community. She is a member of the Chamber of Commerce as well as the Historical Society and Keep Wakulla County Beautiful. Thats something Im really interested in, she says. I want to build this area up. I just love it here. Sitting down at a table, the rst thing a customer might notice is that the walls are covered with one dollar bills, which White says she doesnt know how it got started. People will come in here, sign a dollar and put it up and then come back weeks or months or years later and look for it. Its kind of a cool tradition. There are many other decorations up in the restaurant the walls and ceiling sport flags and pictures which isnt all that different from many other restaurants, except for the fact that most of them were put there by visitors. If anyone has something they want to put up in here, well tack it up, she says. We try to get the customers involved in things that go on. Wednesday nights are bike nights at Ouzts Too. On those nights, White cooks a big homemade meal and only charges patrons a at $4. She started doing it three years ago and thought of it during a time when the economy was rst going south. I wanted to provide a place where people could come and have a hearty home-cooked meal for cheap, she says. And if they drink beer, we offer them an ice cold draft beer for $1. We try to help people out down here. If she could make sure the public knew just one thing about her restaurant, White says, I would want them to know that this is a family place. We have good food and its a place that you can bring your family, relax and enjoy the atmosphere. She credits her staff for providing friendly, familylike service. They really have done a good job, she says.

Harden also added the fact that the governor passed legislation last year that stated the preference for streamlining so that all of the management districts had the same permitting process. In that legislation the governor also wanted all of the states counties to follow the same permitting process as the water management districts. I just think we should follow that, said Harden. Citizen comments were split fairly evenly among those for and against repeal. Those for the repeal of the ordinance seemed united under two main ideas: one, that doing away with it would save a large amount of taxpayer dollars that go towards settling lawsuits led by landowners unable to use their property and, secondly, that it would lead to an increase in employment and an overall progress for the county. Those against repeal spoke of the preservation of the county as it is, as well as wildlife conservation, tourism, fisheries, rare species and water control and quality. Tim Jordan was the rst to speak in favor of Hardens motion. In addition to it being a property rights issue, Jordan began, its prudent and responsible to not have all of these hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of lawsuits that we cant afford. Robert Roddenberry urged to the board to consider doing away with the wetlands ordinance for two primary reasons. One is that it is repetitive, youre doing the same thing the states already doing, he said. Youre just adding another layer of bureaucracy on the citizens and I think we have enough regulations already. The other reason is the liability. I think the state requirements are just as restrictive as the county requirements. Emily Smith was against the idea of any wetlands changes. She claimed that the county would fall even more vulnerable to lawsuits if changes were to happen and claimed that the reasons stated by others in reference to lawsuits and added bureaucracy seemed like unnecessary or fabricated reasons to do away with our ordinance when really there is no lack of compliance or redundancy. Smith also touched on water quality. There was a recent radio piece about how with all the rain that the states been having has caused unsafe levels of human waste bacteria in the water. However, Wakulla County was not on the list but most of the rest of the state was. I dont understand why were necessarily racing to be like everyone else when theirs is a lower standard. Bill Anderson also thought that repeal was a mistake and pleaded with the board that they develop a plan for the future of Wakulla. You should exercise some vision of where this county is going and what is going to bring people here. The TDCs vision says: where nature is our theme park, said Anderson. But you want to destroy that going forward. Once you destroy it you cant bring it back. Chuck Hess got up to speak for the protection of the countys rare species among other things. You live in one of the most important regions in the country. Wetlands are vitally important for our wildlife, sheries and water control. You want to go back to the state protections, but those protections have failed across Florida. To the issue of state of cials using their staffs expertise, Ron Piasecki presented a letter written by the water management district that said they would be doing something about the ow levels, however that they did not have the expertise on staff to address such issues and that they would have to contract outside help. Piaseckis point was that board was going to put the county in a position to rely on the expertise of the state and water management districts, but such evidence suggests that they dont have adequate knowledge that would make it safe to put Wakullas resources in their hands. As critical as these wetlands are to us, I hear from you all that they have all the expertise in the world, let them handle our wetlands, but they cant even handle the minimum ow levels, he said. Until they can prove that they can do things, please dont kill this. Last to speak was Marsha Tucker who said that prior to 2010 she thought DEP was doing a pretty good job. I hate to see the taxpayers have to pay more money for lawsuits, she said. Harden added that there is a signi cant amount of property under conservation. What this ordinance does is take 75 feet of someones property along the rivers and creeks and ponds and adds it to that conservation, he said. Commissioner Howard Kessler had prepared a long statement in opposition to the repeal. We in Wakulla County need to include plans that manage our water and land resources in such a manner that the health and the welfare of our citizens are given priority, he said. Any proposal to eliminate or weaken our wetlands ordinance is shortsighted and a complete disregard for future generations. I urge this board not to go down that path. Audience members applauded Kessler but shortly thereafter, the board put the matter to vote, and it passed 4-1 with Kessler casting the lone dissenting vote. Commissioner Ralph Thomas voted along with Harden, Moore and Merritt for repeal. WILLIAM SNOWDENHoward Kessler gives his objections to the repeal.

SNYDEROur country, so it seems, runs on choice. The more choices we have the better we like it. Most people in America pride themselves on the ability to make their own choices. Freedom of Choice, is the cry you hear all around our country these days. Yet, most people do not have the freedom of choice they think they have. Somebody is in uencing the choices they make without them realizing they are being in uenced. That is called marketing. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching a favorite TV program the other night. Finally, from an end of the room that was not my end, came an exasperated sigh. I tried to ignore it, but you know how that works. The exasperation seemed to accelerate and I knew that if I did not acknowledge it in some way, well, I think you know what would happen. It was in the middle of some commercials and so I turned to her and said, Whats got you in such pain tonight? At her age I did not know if there was some medical something or other going on. These commercials, she moaned so painfully, I cant stand all these commercials! I must say I was a little bummed out about all the commercials myself. I think every one-hour program is devoted to 30 minutes of commercials. Most of those commercials are for things I have no interest in. Or, they are played at a very inappropriate time. I responded as cheerfully as I could, Well, my dear, somebody has to pay for our television viewing privilege. I felt a cold yet burning stare in my direction. Cant they run those lousy commercials when Im not watching TV? Someone once said that silence is Golden and right then I cultivated a golden moment. Commercials are a way in which manufacturing companies in uence our choices. Every product has 100 different companies marketing the same product. I have not done too much research but the little I have done I discovered that the same company makes the same product but sells it under a different name. There are two categories of products. There is the name brand, which cost a fortune. Then there is the generic brand, which is only a fraction of what the name brand cost. It is the same product, made by the same company, but advertised by difference venues. This is where choice comes in. Some people choose the high-priced product because they think it is better. Some of us choose the low-price product because we know better. One night as we were watching television, it seemed most of the commercials had to do with dieting of some kind. There were high calorie diets, low-carb diets and diet that really did not make sense to me. Watching all of those dieting commercials, I did not see one that I would die for. Every one of those commercials assumes everybody watching wants to lose 297 pounds. Personally, I have lost the same 5 pounds for over 30 years. I lose 5 pounds and then by golly, three weeks later I nd those 5 pounds, at least they recognize me. Anybody can lose weight; it is all a matter of choice. Personally, I do not plan to lose any sleep because I cannot lose weight. I think it is going to be rather funny if when we go to heaven everybody is fat. Wouldnt that be something? We plummet ourselves almost to death trying to lose weight and get to heaven and everybody is fat. It all boils down to choice. It all boils down to the fact that most people think they are making their own choices. Those of us who are on the husband side of the marital equation know we do not make our own choices. Our choices are made for us by our better half. Why do you think we get married? My wife is a great one for fruit and vegetables. Every day of our life is fruit and vegetables. To mix things up a little bit one day it will be vegetables and fruit. She prepares the fruit and then invites me to make a choice. She is also concerned about my diet. Much more than I am. I do not think my diet is so important that both of us should be concerned about it. If she chooses to be concerned about my diet, that is her choice. I choose to be a little more cavalier when it comes to dieting. Actually, and do not tell her I said this, but my fruit of choice is the humble Apple fritter. It has everything my heart desires and a few things my body desires, too. I like with David said, Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart (Psalms 37:4 KJV). It is all a matter of choice, that is, making the right choice.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at (866) 552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att. net. Church BriefsSpecial to The NewsBradley J.

Special to The NewsIt may surprise many people to learn that 25 percent of those who die every year in the U.S. are veterans. To help provide care and support that re ect the important contributions made by these men and women, Big Bend Hospice has become a national partner of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. As a We Honor Veterans Partner, Big Bend Hospice will implement ongoing veteran-centered education for their staff and volunteers to help improve the care they provide to the veterans they proudly serve. The nation is seeing many of the veterans who served in World War II and Korea pass away and the number of deaths of Vietnam veterans is rising. The We Honor Veterans campaign provides tiered recognition to organizations that demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving care for veterans. Partners can assess their ability to serve veterans and, using resources provided as part of the campaign, integrate best practices for providing end-of-life care to veterans into their organization. By recognizing the unique needs of our nations veterans who are facing a life-limiting illness, Big Bend Hospice is better able to accompany and guide veterans and their families toward a more peaceful ending. And in cases where there might be some specific needs related to the veterans military service, combat experience or other traumatic events, Big Bend Hospice will nd tools to help support those they are caring for. All hospices are serving veterans but often arent aware of that persons service in the armed forces, said J. Donald Schumacher, NHPCO president and CEO. Through We Honor Veterans we are taking a giant step forward in helping hospice and palliative care providers understand and serve veterans at the end of life and work more effectively with VA medical facilities in their communities. VA shares a common goal with our nations hospices, and that is to provide the best possible care speci cally tailored for veterans, meeting their goals of care in their preferred setting, Schumacher said. As we focus on working together and unite our services and skills, We Honor Veterans will channel our combined strengths directly to veterans wherever they are receiving care.

The family unit as we have known it in the past is quickly devolving into chaotic, disordered, and many times fatherless homes. This is clearly and tragically evident in our society today, and the long term effects may well prove disastrous to society in multiple areas. In a wonderful contrast of this, God has a clear plan for the family structure. God designed marriage to be a lifelong relationship between a husband and wife in which they are to love one another and be fruitful and multiply. Christian families are to honor God in their homes. People ask, how does a Christian family differ from others? It is important to notice that scripture makes it very clear that the one flesh union between husband and wives is a picture of the union between Christ and the Church. God can help families deal with the challenges they face. Through wisdom of God, a family is led to understanding the way God planned it to be. The National Youth Convestion of the Church of Christ Written in Heaven will be held in Lake Mary at the Orlando Marriott from July 17-21. Bishop Willie Jones, National Youth Bishop. We are praying everyone has a safe trip. On Aug. 3 at noon, will be a fellowship service with Bishop Joseph Rosier Sr. and his family from Greenville, S.C., and Georgia. He extends a welcome to all his family and friends in the area to meet at Skipper Temple Church, 165 Surf Road in Sopchoppy. Happy birthday greetings to Elizabeth Clary on July 18 from your children and family so much love. Our prayers go out to everyone for the mind, soul and body, the sick, shut-in, those in the hospital, the nursing home, prison, homeless all in need of a blessing from Jesus Christ.There is help for the family Special to The NewsJuly is Music Therapy month! But what is Music Therapy? According to the American Music Therapy Association, Music Therapy is the clinical and evidencebased use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in a wide variety of healthcare and educational settings. Big Bend Hospice is among a very small group of hospices nationwide that offer music therapy to all of their patients. Licensed therapists utilize Music Therapy to manage stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, improve communication and promote physical wellness. For a hospice patient, dealing with a terminal diagnosis can be overwhelming, especially without adequate support. The live music interventions that Music Therapists (MT-BC) provide can be a great source of support and comfort. Music Therapy for Big Bend Hospice patients usually occurs one on one, though it may occur as part of a group or include the patients family if this is the patients preference. Music Therapists (MT) almost always use live, patient preferred music. Often MTs use guitars or keyboards, but are able to use other instruments as needed. Music therapy may appear entertaining, but each music therapy session is intended to meet speci c therapeutic goals. Since 2001, Big Bend Hospices Music Therapy program has been unique. The program has hosted international researchers and delegates and regularly hosts music therapy trainings. They have written the music that Big Bend Hospice uses with various Remembrance Services, Dedications, at Camp Woe-Be-gone and Hope for the Holidays. In August 2008,. as part of BBHs 25th Anniversary, their Music Therapists were able to record these special songs on a CD and have it professionally mastered and recorded. In May 2009, Big Bend Hospice celebrated the release of the CD, In the Shelter of Our Tree: The Songs of Big Bend Hospice. BBH Music Therapists worked with Winterstone Productions to produce a professional recording of special songs to distribute to patients and families. Big Bend Hospice employs three full-time board-certi ed music therapists, three part-time music therapist and four interns. MTs often co-treat with nurses, family support counselors, volunteers, chaplains, and/or fellow music therapists for the bene t of patients. I have been privileged to be a part of the BBH MT team for almost six years, says Susan Droessler, MT-BC, Music Therapy Department Manager & Internship Director. During that time, I have witnessed countless end of life journeys made easier through the provision of skilled Music Therapy care. Our staff is highly trained and skilled and is among the best in the nation at providing this important service. Big Bend Hospice is grateful to the community for their support of this program, Board Certified Music Therapists have completed a degree in music therapy, a full time six month internship, and passed the music therapy board certi cation exam. Music Therapists are trained in musical techniques, psychology, biology/anatomy, counseling skills, and other areas. Hospices are not required by Medicare or Medicaid to provide Music Therapy services, however through donations and community support Big Bend Hospice continues to provide quality, licensed Music Therapy care to hospice patients and their families, especially in the rural areas. Funds such as these provide live, research based music therapy care at the bedside to those who need it most. Big Bend Hospice has been serving this community since 1983 with compassionate end of life care along with grief and loss counselors available to provide information and support to anyone in Leon, Jefferson, Taylor, Madison, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin or Wakulla counties.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAThe state's voucherlike system that allows students to attend private schools experienced record enrollment growth in the 2012-13 school year, according to a state report, and a spokesman said the program expects to add even more students for the upcoming year. According to the annual report on the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program by the state Department of Education, the number of students using the program grew by 10,827 in 2012-13, to 51,075, or almost 27 percent. Jon East, spokesman for Step Up for Students, the administrator of the program, said the growth is primarily due to a bill approved by the Legislature in 2012 that increased the budget for the program to $229 million. That was nearly $10.3 million more than the credit would have otherwise increased under an automatic funding formula. Under the program, corporations are allowed to take tax credits for money that they contribute to Step Up for Students, which then uses those funds to essentially provide private-school vouchers. Demand for the program has continued to grow, East said in an email. "Even after serving 51,075 students this past year, there was a waiting list of about 10,000 students," East said. East said the cap for the coming school year is $286.2 million, which has already been contributed, and the program has given out about 60,000 vouchers for 2013-14. Mark Pudlow, a spokesman for the Florida Education Association, pointed out that almost 2.7 million students attend public school in Florida. He didn't dispute the idea that state leaders have pushed to increase the use of vouchers. "The state has certainly encouraged the growth of the corporate voucher program, despite the fact that these schools are largely unregulated and the state doesnt gauge their effectiveness compared to public schools," he said. The report does give some insight into the demographics of the program and how it's used. While about 26.8 percent of the schools that participate in the program are secular, only 17.5 percent of the students enrolled attend those schools. The rest go to religious institutions. And the majority of students who use the program are minorities. Almost 34.7 percent of the students receiving vouchers are Latinos, while 33.1 percent are African American and just shy of 25 percent are white. A little more than 7 percent are either members of other racial or ethnic groups or their race and ethnicity were not reported. By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAEducation Commissioner Tony Bennett will ask the State Board of Education next week to prevent schools from dropping by more than one letter grade on the state report card in an effort to counter what superintendents say could be an alarming drop in grades. Bennett's recommendations, to be taken up at a specially called meeting Tuesday, are seen as an effort to avoid another botched rollout of the school grades after last year's release became a public-relations headache for the Department of Education. Bennett's predecessor, Gerard Robinson, resigned a short time later, though Robinson said he was leaving to spend more time with his family. The limit on any drop in school grades was one of the key recommendations that local superintendents offered Bennett during discussions last week. It would continue a policy started last year during the grades controversy. The superintendents say that some of the data they're getting back as they do the initial calculations for the report cards this year seem to be off -but they don't know why. Part of the problem, they say, is that the state has implemented 13 changes this year alone to the accountability system for schools -making it harder to meet the standards and harder to gure out what's going wrong. Concerns about that complexity also hover over the state's efforts to put in place the "Common Core State Standards," which are based on national guidelines. In a letter to state board members explaining his thinking, Bennett took pains to distance the school-grades proposal from any idea that it would water down the state's accountability system. "To be clear, my recommendations, outlined below, are made not to soften the blow of higher standards or to reduce the number of failing schools, but rather to advance the best policy for Florida's students and position our state for a successful transition to full implementation of the CCSS (Common Core State Standards) in the 2014-2015 school year and beyond," he wrote. Bennett also recommended not including the scores of students at so-called "ESE centers," which teach students with disabilities, in the grades of the schools they might otherwise attend. Currently, those students' scores would count for the "home school" if the ESE center chooses to receive an alternative rating instead of a school grade. But because grades are set to be released soon, Bennett said any changes to this year's grades under that recommendation should be handled retroactively through an appeals process. Sen. Bill Montford, DTallahassee, said he saw the changes recommended by Bennett as a "good, reasonable response." Montford, who also serves as the CEO of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents, took part in last week's discussions. "Clearly, I think this is a fair approach to it," Montford said. Montford said he was encouraged that Bennett was keeping the common core system in mind as he considered the changes. Miami-Dade County Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, who helped spearhead the drive for tweaking this year's grades, was measured in his praise of the recommendations. "We support the commissioners recommendations, especially the continuation of the temporary safety net that prevents schools from dropping more than one grade letter in a given year," Carvalho said. "It is our hope, however, that the Florida Board of Education will consider polling districts for the ESE Center choice (rating or grading) prior to the release of school grades; otherwise, they will be branded as failing, and have to appeal."Bennett recommends changes to grading systemVoucher program growing rapidly, report shows Name __________________________________________________________________ Address ________________________________________________________________ City _______________________________________________ State _______________ Zip __________ Phone ____________________ Email __________________________ Payment Enclosed Bill MeSign up online Promo Code: CRAZY Clip, complete and mail to:Expires 7/31/13.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team views SportsBy ALAN ROSS Part-time Michael Waltrip Racing driver Brian Vickers came through an attrition-marred race at New Hampshire Sunday to take the checkered ag for only the third time in his Cup career and rst win in 75 races. Vickers, whose trials are well documented, beginning with a medical condition that forced him from racing in 2010, was somewhat of a surprise challenger near the races end. But the Waltrip stable, of which Vickers is a part, is showing a surprising strength in Cup competition this year. Vickers win comes on the heels of a fthplace finish for team owner Michael Waltrip last week in Daytona and follows a victory from one of the teams other drivers, Martin Truex Jr., last month in Sonoma. Pole-sitter Brad Keselowski quickly abdicated the lead spot to Kyle Busch shortly after the drop of the green ag. Busch paced the eld in the early going before yielding to older brother Kurt, who took the race by the neck and seemed to be the strength of the eld. But on Lap 225 of the 301-lap tour of New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Busch met his demise on the low side of a three-way dive for Turn 1, perhaps slightly aided by Matt Kenseths front bumper. Busch slid up into Ryan Newman, taking both out. In quick fashion, the pace-setting driver of the 78 car was done for the day. Tony Stewart seemed to bene t most from the misfortune that stalked the eld through 11 cautions over the rst 258 laps, the No. 14 car going out of sequence and off strategy to move through the eld from his 16th-place start. Tensions increased as the laps decreased, with the number of yellows indicative of the wrecks, spinouts, and delays throughout the cast. Kyle Busch, told by bis crew chief that the race would come back to him when the late afternoon cloud cover returned, was suddenly right behind Stewart with 25 laps to go. Latecomer Vickers, though, passed the No. 18 of Busch with 19 laps remaining, and soon trailed Stewart by less than a second. No one knew what fuel Stewart had left, as Vickers pulled up behind the No. 14, eventually passing him with 14 laps remaining. There was closing drama, however. With ve laps to go, the races 12th caution came out for a questionable piece of debris. It was the last thing Stewart on fumes wanted to see. True to his deepest fears, Stewart slowed just before the white- ag lap and Vickers chugged home with his wellearned victory. Jimmie Johnson, with a sixth-place finish at New Hampshire, stretches his championship points lead over Clint Bowyer to 56. The Sprint Cup eld takes a breather next week before heading to The Brickyard for one of the sports four crown jewels. ROADSIDE RANT: Im never sure NASCAR knows when to leave well enough alone. With intermittent driver Brian Vickers leading the Camping World RV Sales 301 with ve laps to go, the 12th caution yes, a dozen yellow ags ew Sunday came out for debris on the track, in this case a smallish piece of what looked like hard rubber. It in no way looked threatening to any of the 3,500-pound vehicles mashing the track, but one wonders what constitutes a dangerous piece of debris. At the same time, onlookers were wondering if Stewart would last the race with enough gas and if Vickers could beat the big guys. Earlier, a questionable piece of rubber debris that was high on the track but off line brought out the caution. By contrast, in Sundays IndyCar race at Toronto, a section of some cars front wing assembly rested just off the racing line at about the same placement as the miniscule debris found early on in the NASCAR race. Difference was, they raced on at the IndyCar race. TORONTO INDY: IndyCars second doubleheader of the season the rst weekend double was successfully run at Detroit last month proved to be a treasure trove for Team Target Ganassi Racings Scott Dixon, who swept the back-to-back weekend series to add to his victory at Pocono last week: three series victories in eight days. Can you say hot streak? Dixon was indomitable. Not only did he overtake a hot-running Sebastian Bourdais Saturday for the rst victory, but so total was his rule on Sunday that, with 24 laps left in what had been a caution-free race to that point, Dixon had built a jaw-dropping 15-second lead. Though the race couldnt escape carnage, Dixon never was challenged. As a result of his prodigious three-race run, the New Zealander moves up to second place in the points championship behind Helio Castroneves.

By SCOTT MORIAKFSU Sports Information In leagues from Alaska to Florida and areas in between, many Seminoles are using this summer to sharpen their skills in order to return to Tallahassee ready to make a run at a CWS title in 2014. Brandon Johnson is pitching well for the Alexandria Blue Anchors in the Northwoods League with a 1-0 record, one save and a 0.71 ERA in 10 appearances. He has given up one run all season and opponents are hitting only .191 against him. In his last appearance, he registered one strikeout as he faced the minimum in 1.2 innings of relief against Mankato on July 14. Brandon Leibrandt had an impressive outing on July 9 for the Brewster Whitecaps of the Cape Cod League. The lefty pitched 7.0 solid innings, scattering four hits and a walk without giving up a run while striking out three. After allowing his only walk of the game Leibrandt promptly picked off the runner at rst, showcasing again his amazing pickoff move that gunned down 13 runners in 2013 for Florida State. Kenny Burkhead was named to the North AllStar team for Florida Collegiate League. The freshman right hander struck out two in 1.0 innings during the FCL All-Star Game on July 9. Overall, he is 2-3 with a 3.64 ERA on the season for the Sanford River Rats. Burkhead also got a chance to hit and went 2-for-2 from the plate against Hope 4 Heroes on July 6. John Nogowski has continued to hit the ball well as a member of the Amsterdam Mohawks. He is third overall in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League with a .380 average and also has scored 20 runs and knocked in 15 RBI this season.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 Page 11Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFrom FWC News Recreational and commercial blue crab traps in state waters from the Pasco-Hernando county line to the Wakulla-Franklin county line, including all waters of the Ochlockonee River and Bay, must be removed from the water before July 20, the rst day of a 10-day trap closure. This closure will give groups authorized by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission the opportunity to identify and retrieve lost and abandoned blue crab traps from the water. Traps can be placed back in the water in this area starting July 30. Until then, blue crabs may be harvested with other gear, such as dip nets and fold-up traps. Blue crab harvesters may also use standard blue crab traps during the closure if the traps are attached to a dock or other private property. Lost and abandoned blue crab traps are a problem in the blue crab shery because they can continue to trap crabs and sh when left in the water. They can also be unsightly in the marine environment, damage sensitive habitats and pose navigational hazards to boaters on the water. The closure is one of three regional, 10-day blue crab trap closures that occur in 2013 on the Gulf coast of Florida. There are six regional closures total: three in even-numbered years on the east coast and three in odd-numbered years on the west coast. While state waters extend to 9 nautical miles offshore in the Gulf, the blue crab trap closures include only state waters extending to 3 nautical miles offshore.

It doesnt kick much, so you dont begin the bad habit of jerking the gun and losing your aim on the target (your sight picture). Out of curiosity, you start looking around. You think about a higher caliber gun and what is important for you and your safe and accurate shooting. Personally, I prefer a heavy gun, so its mass absorbs the recoil. Since composite guns are lighter, I want it to be mostly metal. Preferably stainless. And one that holds a lot of bullets, so I dont have to change the magazine often when practicing. I like a smooth and not too long trigger pull. I like a long barrel. The grip has to t my small hand, and the angle of the grip has to feel comfortable. After that Ruger 22, I found an Armalite 9mm that t the bill. It is heavy and too big for me to conceal, but its a ne target and bedside gun. Truly, the Armalite is the very best gun to own. Of course, knowing I have the very best handgun doesnt stop a friend from offering me a Spring eld XDM40 at a fantastic price. A .40 caliber gun? Who needs it? Would anyone purchase a gun just because its a good deal? I had absolutely no plans to do so. Nope. None. However, only for comparisons sake, Joe and I visit an indoor range in Wilmington, N.C. We rent a Glock 23 and a Ruger SR 40C. The Rugers grip is a bit wide for my hand. The trigger pull is somewhat long and a medium hard. The barrel length is 4.14 inches and the sights are adjustable. It holds a double stacked 15 bullets. The gun feels nicely tight and weighs 27.25 ounces. It is accurate, and I like it. Priced around $407. Not so much as my Armalite, though. The Glock is lighter at 21.16 ounces. The barrel length is good at 4.02 inches. This particular Glock holds 13 bullets and is also double stacked. The grip is a bit wide for me. Sights are not adjustable. Glocks are the most widely used handgun by law enforcement in the United States. This particular one runs around $513. I think it has a fairly hard pull and too much kick. A woman at the counter says she really likes the Glock because it is snappy. Thats not a compliment. If the gun snaps in your hand, it changes position and therefore youve lost your sight picture. Now, your next shot will be off. So Im not happy with the Glock. Finally, I borrow my friends Spring eld XDM and go to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office Range. The XDM is a hunky gun with a long 4.5 inch barrel. The fat white dot sights are easy to see. The magazine holds 16 bullets. I like the feel of the grip. It doesnt feel too wide, although it is double stacked. The XDM should run around $687. I pull the trigger. Not too long, not too short. Wah-hoo! The bullet hits right outside the x-ring. Beginners luck? I shoot again. The second bullet hits next to the rst. So does the third. What a smooth and tight gun! Now, Im not planning to actually buy a .40. But what a cool gun! It feels just right. Nope. Not buying. But the XDM might, just might, be the better gun for me than the 9mm Armalite. Wait! Wait, wait! All the good guys on TV have not one, but two guns. They have backup guns. You know what? I really need a backup gun. Those XDMs are pricey, but my friend is offering such a deal. I mean, you cant afford not to get it at this price. Which is the very best gun to own? Well, both of these are great. However, Im going to a gun show this weekend. And Im beginning to have a sneaking feeling that the next very best gun might be right there.Marj Law is the formerdirector of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and an avid shooter in her retirement. HOME ON THE RANGEWhats the best gun to own, part 2 Armalite AR-24. Ruger 22. Spring eld XDM. From FWC News Three Georgia men were rescued by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers July 4 at the mouth of the Econ na River and the Gulf of Mexico. Another FWC officer rescued two people who had attempted to assist the men in the water but whose own boat ceased running and was filling with water. Ryan J. Hall (DOB 09/03/90) from Pavo, Ga.; Blake E. Bynum (DOB 10/16/86) of Moultrie, Ga.; and Daniel E. Powers (DOB 09/21/85), Thomasville, Ga., were in the water after their boat capsized in rough weather. The Taylor County Sheriffs Office asked for assistance with the three men in the water and FWC officers Chad Albritton, Randy McDonald and Jerry Lee Yates, under the leadership of Lt. Scott Lee, responded. Albritton was on water patrol in an 18-foot, open-patrol vessel in the Keaton Beach area, approximately 25 miles away. McDonald and Yates were en route to water patrol with a 22-foot boat. Lee, the Taylor County supervisor, was preparing for both a holiday weekend on the water and managing boating safety enforcement efforts for the opening week of scallop season. Albritton headed to the Econfina River through rough 2to 3-foot seas in his small, open boat. McDonald and Yates launched their vessel at the Econ na River boat ramp in search of the three men. Lee coordinated communication efforts with the men from the capsized vessel and the of cers involved in the rescue. McDonald and Yates arrived rst in the area and began searching the rough seas. They quickly located Hall in the water, clinging to a marker, and Bynum and Powers with the capsized vessel. The three were rescued with minor injuries. Another vessel had attempted to rescue the Georgia men, but it also ran into trouble. Alan Ray Hendricks (DOB 04/03/62) from Crawfordville, and his passenger aboard a 15foot open boat, began taking on water when their engine broke down. Albritton located Hendricks vessel near the other capsized boat, and these two boaters were also rescued and towed back to the boat ramp. Due to the quick action and teamwork of Lt. Lee and of cers Albritton, McDonald and Yates, I rmly believe that three lives were saved that day, said FWC Capt. Marty Redmond. By exceptional ability, personal initiative and total dedication to duty, these four FWC law enforcement officers re ect great credit upon themselves and the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com Saturday members of Flotilla 12 came together for our monthly meeting. In attendance were 13 members and four visitors. We were joined by the Division Vice Commander Eric DeVuyst, Lynn Mott, TJ Del Bello and Anne Del Bello. Lynn, TJ and Anne are all division staff of cers. During the meeting, David Rabon was presented with his crew qualification certificate. Raye Crews also received an award for completing the Operational Auxiliary Specialty Program (AUXOP). The AUXOP program consists of core, leadership, and elective credit elements in order to give variety to Auxiliarists, increase practical AUXOP relevance to Coast Guard missions, and better assist the Coast Guard to ful ll needed skill sets. This is a prestigious award and is only achieved by a small fraction of Auxiliarists. Congratulations, Raye! After our business meeting, Eric presented training for any member interested on plotting and navigation. This is part of an effort Division-wide to streamline our training so that there is more uniformity in how things are done. We have guidelines from the Coast Guard as well as the Auxiliary, but every Flotilla does things a little differently. Throughout the training, participants reviewed and practiced calculating deviation and variation as well as set and drift. Determining distance, rate of speed and time were calculated. Finally, search patterns were reviewed. One of the great aspects of training is reviewing what you know and learning new things. At the end of our training we were all presented with information on a missing person and worked in groups to determine where the person was last seen, how long it would take to reach their location, how far they may have moved since the call was received and lay out a search pattern for locating them. We hope to never need to use these skills in the real world, but if we get a call about a missing boater or other emergency, we now have re ned skills to do our job to the best of our abilities. A special thanks to Phil Hill for taking pictures! When disaster strikes, often it is said it can be avoided. This past week, an interesting article resurfaced about the dangers of digging holes in the sand. The article was a blog entry and can be found here: http:// earthchicknits.wordpress.com/2007/07/16/ the-worst- ve-minutesof-my-life. It details a mothers story of her young son disappearing on a beach. In the time it took the father to turn away and back again, the child was gone. Several good Samaritans came to assist and one noticed an indentation in the sand. After a little digging, the found the child alive. In a follow up article, the blogger discussed a few good tips to prevent this from happening. This is a preventable crisis on almost all cases. 1. Dont dig holes deeper than waistheight of the shortest person around. The hole my son fell into was not terribly deep. But it was deep enough to swallow him up when it caved in. 2. If you (or your children) do dig holes, fill them up when youre done. That alone wouldve prevented our neartragedy. 3. When you arrive at the beach, scout out the area you will be setting up in, checking for holes. Teach your children to come tell you if they nd holes other have dug, and to not play in or near them. 4. Keep as sharp an eye on your children on the sand as you would in the water. A quick search on the internet led to another interesting article related to the same topic: http://www.boston.com/news/local/ articles/2007/06/21/ like_surf_sand_can_ kill_says_doctor. Just this month alone, two children died in California and a child in the Chicago area remains in the hospital after a sand dune collapsed on him. We have great beaches and many of us enjoy them on a regular basis. Please remember that safety is important everywhere, on the sand as well as in the water. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www. uscgaux.net.

Back then I had few places to go to get training. I became a Diving Scientist, a Diving Educator and an Underwater Investigator by the time I retired. I also now own and operate a dive center, but that did not require being underwater, only the business of diving! Most of our diving activity is recreational, that is, performed for sheer pleasure and little else. OK, spear shing can be intense, but the thrill is in the hunt, not the dive. And recreational divers are often de ned by depth and duration. Technical diving (greater depth and duration) is still recreational but is more challenging, requiring more detailed skills and commitment. Most cave divers attracted to North Florida fall into this technical category. They tell me they enjoy our underwater sculpture, the thrill of discovery of new passage and the glory of their conquest. Without this glory, many would visit elsewhere. But there are people, men and women, who work underwater. These folks are de ned by their mission, usually make their living underwater, and are called professional. To them diving is a vehicle to get to their place of employment. Safety, reliability and creature comforts are important to them just as a safe, reliable and comfortable car is to the professional who drives to work. There is seldom any thrill in the dive, conditions are often marginal (cold, poor visibility and challenged), but the pay can be good. People at my center are professionals who dive. Some dive recreationally as well. The dive instructor (Discipline: Education) who taught you to dive is a professional, his or her mission is to teach you how to safely use scuba equipment and enjoy the aquatic environment. To get to this professional level, (s)he had to start at the basics and dive recreationally, then learn the technology (dive technology), then learn to teach by assisting in a few classes (Assistant Instructor), then learn to manage the risk of divers (Dive Rescue & Dive Master), and nally mentor under an Instructor Trainer to eventually take his or her professional board exams (under a Course Director). This may take our professional years to complete. There are, of course, several professions that work underwater. They include Diving Scientists, Underwater Investigators, Marine Engineers and Technologists (Ocean Engineering), Underwater Photographers, Aquaculturists, commercial shermen, and even construction to name just a few. Each of these requires a discipline, say Anthropology, engineering or photography attached to the techniques and technology of diving to succeed underwater. Not surprising, these professionals go to universities for their education. Universities however, are often focused more on education and less on skill training. A common option was to take courses from an academic diving program, like the one I set up at Florida State University in 1976. But those programs nationally have lost their support in recent years. What has shown promise is the renewed quest for jobs by the community college system. By offering professional diving training, which can be coupled to any number of professional disciplines, the Diving Professional is again possible. At 18, with my love of marine biology, I would have started at a community college dive program, had I had the opportunity. Enjoy the journey. Class practice exercise. Raye Crews receiving AUXOP.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 Page 13ABy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 12 When most residents of the country thought about Florida this week, the rst thing that came to their minds was likely not a Supreme Court case. Or the net worths of state of cials. Or the pending book by former Gov. Charlie Crist. Instead, their eyes were on state prosecutors case against George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager, during a confrontation between the two in Sanford. Zimmerman says he was acting in self-defense. With fears that racial tension could boil over if Zimmerman is acquitted by the jury, which began deliberations Friday, state of cials were sure to stress that they were prepared for unrest. Weve got great sheriffs, police chiefs, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Ive been in contact with them, theyre ready for whatever happens, Scott said during a Thursday morning appearance on WPEC TV in West Palm Beach. But hopefully the right thing happens here, and well have a verdict that everybody understands. But elsewhere in the state, there were less intense but still weighty issues. HOW BINDING IS BINDING? It didnt have the drama of the Zimmerman case, but there was still plenty of ngerpointing and a helping of angry words at the Florida Supreme Court in a case over redistricting. But this was over an arcane if signi cant legal principle whether state legislative districts can be challenged in lower courts once the Supreme Court has signed off on them. According to a 5-2 majority the kind of majority that courtwatchers have grown used to the answer is yes, as long as those claims are based on the kind of evidence that justices dont consider when they do constitutionally mandated reviews of the maps as part of the once-a-decade redistricting process. The Florida Constitution says decisions from those Supreme Court reviews shall be binding upon all the citizens of the state. But writing for the majority, Justice Barbara Pariente said Thursday that didnt apply to more fact-intensive lawsuits than the automatic reviews, especially now that the constitution also includes the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts amendments. Simply put, the framers and voters clearly desired more judicial scrutiny of the legislative apportionment plan, not less, Pariente wrote. But in a pointed dissent, Justice Charles Canady wrote that the opinion would deaden the intent of the binding provision, known as section 16(d). With this decision, we confront the prospect of unending litigation concerning legislative redistricting a prospect that section 16(d), by its plain terms, undeniably was designed to preclude, he wrote. A coalition of voting-rights organizations that are challenging the Senate map cheered the decision. Republican lawmakers were less enthusiastic or understandably disappointed, in the words of a spokeswoman for Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville. The president stands by the maps as well as the Legislatures redistricting process, spokeswoman Katie Betta said in an email. The 2012 redistricting process was the most open and transparent in Floridas history and produced maps which are compliant with Floridas constitution, facts which the president believes will ultimately be af rmed. THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE TV AD? Republicans are also likely to be understandably disappointed, or perhaps downright livid, when they get a chance to read the pending memoir from former Gov. Charlie Crist. Crist and Dutton, a publisher, said the Republican-turnedindependent-turned-Democrat would pen a book called THE PARTYS OVER: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat. The publicity for the book suggests its part revenge for Crist being pushed out of the Republican Party in 2010 and part manifesto as he gears up for a bid for his former job, this time as a Democrat. Ill share my very strong feelings about whats happened to the Republicans, how the party I grew up in has been hijacked by extremists, losing its compassion and common sense, Crist said in a press release issued by Dutton. Ill describe exactly what I saw and what it made me realize. It will no doubt be required reading for observers of state politics, but Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry was already laughing off the idea of a bestseller from the man his party used to promote. We didnt know that Charlie Crist was launching a new career as a fiction writer, Curry said in a statement. But we do want to thank him for the hundreds of pages of rhetorical ammunition he will be giving to us and his primary opponents. HOW MUCH DO YOU MAKE? HOW MUCH DID YOU RAISE? With disclosures of state of cials public wealth now being posted online, and the fund-raising statements of candidates also being published this week, there was plenty of gossip to be had about money. One takeaway: Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam is doing rather well in both departments. Putnam, whose wealth is tied to the family-owned Putnam Groves, led the three Cabinet of cers with a net worth of $7.2 million, an increase from $6.49 million in 2011. His net worth had dipped from $6.8 million in 2010, when he was elected commissioner. One thing he might not have to spend much of that money on is his re-election campaign. The Republican commissioner, often mentioned as a future candidate for governor, raked in $591,011 in contributions between April 1 and June 30, far more than other statewide candidates and almost 60 percent of the $966,788 raised by the Florida Democratic Party over the same time frame. Big thanks to everyone who helped kick off my reelection (with) such momentum! Putnam said in a message on Twitter. Nearly 2000 donors have invested in our vision for Florida! Also doing well: Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Fort Walton Beach Republican gearing up to run for his fathers Senate seat, reported raising $252,360 for that 2016 contest. Speaking of the elder Gaetz: The co-founder of VITAS Healthcare Corp. and former Okaloosa County schools superintendent is worth $26.2 million tops among more than a third of senators who have publicly declared themselves to be millionaires. And with some forms not yet ready for public release, the group of millionaires could grow. REMAKING THE GRADE Current county school superintendents who might not be worth as much as Gaetz were more concerned with what Education Commissioner Tony Bennett will recommend to the State Board of Education next week in an effort to counter what the superintendents say could be an alarming drop in school grades on the state report card. In a letter to the state board, Bennett recommended continuing a year-old policy that prevents schools from dropping by more than one letter grade on those report cards, though he pre-emptively pushed back on any suggestion that such a policy watered down the states accountability system. To be clear, my recommendations, outlined below, are made not to soften the blow of higher standards or to reduce the number of failing schools, but rather to advance the best policy for Floridas students and position our state for a successful transition to full implementation of the CCSS (Common Core State Standards) in the 2014-2015 school year and beyond, he wrote. Bennett also recommended tweaking how students at socalled ESE centers, which teach students with disabilities, are accounted for. Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, said he saw the changes recommended by Bennett as a good, reasonable response. Montford, who also serves as the CEO of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents, took part in discussions between Bennett and the superintendents about the grades. Clearly, I think this is a fair approach to it, Montford said. STORY OF THE WEEK: The Florida Supreme Court ruled that a case challenging the Senates redistricting plan can go forward despite an earlier ruling by the court that there was nothing on the surface that indicated the map violated the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts standards. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: It is reminiscent of divorce court, where the louder each one screams, the more interesting it becomes to the audience. Susan MacManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida, on the war of words between Crist and the state GOP.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Drawing lines and writing books in TallahasseeBy SLIM RANDLESBert was mumbling to himself as he adjusted cracker packets around his morning coffee at the Mule Barn. Something wrong, Bert? Not if you have some Old Fool pills for me, Doc. Uh-oh. What happened? Well, Id been telling the Johnson kid some stories of the old days when I was guiding hunters, and I happened to mention I could sight in a ri e with only two shots. You can do that? Yes. So can anyone, if they have a cardboard box. So anyway, here I was giving the kid my spiel about sighting in a ri e with two shots and he said hed like to see a demonstration. Sounds fair enough. Well, yeah, and I didnt mind. I gure we owe it to the next generation Come on, Bert, Dud said, what happened? Well, you know you get a solid bench rest and aim at the target and re one shot, right? So then you get a cardboard box and notch it and use rocks or sand to anchor it solidly so you can immobilize your ri e and you set it up so the ri e cant move and it is showing the exact same sight picture you used for the rst shot. I didnt know about this, Doc said. Simple, really. So youre looking at the bulls-eye the way you did on the first shot, and without moving the rifle itself, you adjust the sights until theyre pointed at the bullet hole in the target. Thats it. You then remove the cardboard box, sight at the bulls-eye and shoot again. It should be dead on. That makes sense, Dud said. So what went wrong? Bert said, Well, we loaded up everything we needed: chair, table, box, bread wrappers full of sand, target, everything. Then we drove out to the gravel pit and set it all up, just right. Took quite a while. Finally we were ready, so I went over and unzipped my ri e case and pulled out my shotgun. So how many of those Old Fool pills do you need, Bert? All you can spare me, Doc. All you can spare.Brought to you by Utas, maker of the 15shot ultimate tactical shotgun. Now its also the ultimate big-game gun. www.utas-usa.com. ture.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comPassion is a curious concept. It combines intensity and desire, in its purest sense, to create an obsessive need. There is, figuratively and literally, a fine and not always obvious line between passion and irrationality. Poets throughout history have waxed ad nauseum about one passion or another. The century, the geographic location and the poets fatalism usually combined to focus on an object or concept of passion. Todays passions run the gamut from politics, to sports, romance novels and horticulture. If it is out there and has a following, then some group is passionate about it. Luckily, contemporary Wakulla County residents can enjoy a native horticulture passion with all the fixating beauty but none of the absurd obsessiveness. Passi ora incarnata is a fast growing perennial vine and commonly known as passion ower with a fruit called a maypop. The vine is found in sunny areas, but will not grow in heavy shade. Untended fence rows, ditches and fallow elds are sites where this vine is frequently encountered. The large bloom is complex and hypnotic with a multitude of shapes and angles within the structure. These blooms are attached to the climbing or trailing stems, but are found on the ground when there is nothing on which to climb. The owers color ranges from purple to near esh color. The term incarnata, in the scienti c name of this local wildflower, means esh colored in Latin. This dazzling regional native has been appreciated by many cultures. The Cherokee term for this bloom is Ocoee. This identi er lives on in Tennessee where the Ocoee River and the Ocoee Valley are still associated with this plant. The passion flower vine produce fruit in midsummer called a maypop. The maypop is green and approximately the size of a large lime, but turns yellow as it matures. The interior of the fruit is white with abundant white seeds about the same size and shape of watermelon seed. Historically, colonial settlers and the indigenous natives before them have eaten the raw maypops and used them in a variety of culinary applications. Additionally, the maypops have been used in an assortment of folk medicine formulas. While there has been some basic research into its medicinal properties, the most soothing use is to enjoy the blooms. The passion ower vine plays a very important role with some of Wakulla Countys insect residents. It, and other less common passion ower varieties, is the exclusive host plant for the Gulf Fritillary butter ys caterpillar and a major food source for the Variegated Fritillarys caterpillar. The Gulf Fritillary caterpillar is bright orange and covered with rows of medium length black spines. The spines are soft to the touch and do not sting, but if eaten the larva is toxic. Gulf Fritillary butter ies are a muted orange with a large silver spot on the underside of each wing. They noted for their ability to traverse the Gulf of Mexico and travel as far as Argentina. Gulf Fritillary butter ies have been able to expanded their range because of the cultivation of passion ower varieties. Luckily, Wakulla County has plenty occurring naturally.

& Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 18, 2013 Thinking Outside the Box Page 3B WEEK IN WAKULLA Page 2B Record-setting catch in St. Marks in 1954 Red Clay Footprints, Page 8B By HERB DONALDSON Special to The News As the Scene in Wakulla Playwright/Filmmaker Festival came to a close, I wanted to take a moment to put down a few notes regarding it. Our Welcome to Wakulla meet-and-greet was originally scheduled to take place at our sponsors location, Best Western Plus/Wakulla Inns & Suites. Upon learning that the Tourism Development Council, Wakulla Chamber of Commerce, among others, was to hold an unveiling at the same exact time in Panacea, Palaver Tree felt it best to combine both efforts instead of creating unnecessary competition. It couldnt have turned out any better. Actor John DAquino and lmmaker Karamuu Kush were both on-hand, as were a group of approximately 30 folks involved with SCENE/Palaver Tree. As a Wakulla resident, it was somewhat fascinating to see those involved with lm and art, meeting with our county commissioners, members of the Chamber, and others involved in the sustaining of our environmental resources, and the smartgrowth of our county. One of the more compelling conversations came between former county judge Mike Carter and writer Agnes Furey. Fureys play version of her book, Wild owers in the Median, centered on the murder of both her daughter and grandson by Leonard Scovens, the man her daughter was trying to help better his life. Furey and Scovens wrote the book together through letters they sent back and forth from her home to his prison cell. As the two spoke, it came to light that Carter had suffered something of a horri c loss in his family as well. He explained a bit more in detail and from there a brief dialogue began that can only occur between those whove lost loved ones far too soon, and are left with the question why? I had a slight insight of what Scene in Wakulla was really about, and was, on a much larger scale, meant to do because of this conversation. Friday began our series of workshops. The OnCamera Workshop, taught by DAquino, and the Directing for Film taught by Kush, took place at separate locations. It would seem, from the number of participants who attended, that people are more prone to want to be in lm (or onstage) as opposed to being the true mastermind behind the lm, or project itself. A large group assembled for DAquinos class for a chance to develop their craft in front of the camera. All were given scenes to perform, discuss, and to discover the fundamental dos and donts when being lmed for commercials, movies, etc. It was over much too quickly. Kushs group was smaller, more intimate. It also brought in a few young filmmakers from the county (teens and those in middle school). To see the vision these young people have, especially in an age where almost anyone can pick up a camera and lm their cat doing pet tricks, was inspiring to behold. They brought in their own lm-work for discussion and critique. Some, obviously, were still nding their way. But there were others who possessed a subtle genius about their work. They took an amount of pride in their artistry that made me proud to say they came from our corner of the globe. These students are now linked to Kush in California, who has agreed to become a type of mentor to them. If they have questions about a film, or need advice on the development of a script, they need only reach out to him. This generosity, in turn, may open doors for these future directors. The panel discussion later that night, went bust. The only ones in attendance were those directly involved in Scene approximately 15 people. As fate would have it, we all sat around and talked about why we became involved in the arts to begin with. What was the larger purpose? Crowds? Or the broader vision of changing and enhancing lives one by one. We walked away from the discussion that night with a better idea of who each artist involved was, along with their level of commitment. I could not have known, then, how this one exchange of thoughts and ideas would impact the next days events. Saturday began with the workshops. That afternoon the readings began with a piece I wrote years ago, in anger, called A Matter of Seconds. Ive known people through the years who were HIV positive. Some of them are living with it, while others, such as one of my family members, died from related complications, or full-blown AIDS. I say that I wrote in anger because thats what I was at the time, unrepentantly angry. Id lost friends to a deadly disease that no one wanted to really talk about, or deal with. When I came into the knowledge that a beloved family member was infected, all the things I bottled up about American apathy, family, traditions, God, His judgment, and those who use God as a weapon to harm the mental and emotional well-being of others, came out in a ood. Seconds was the reading that set-up Agnes Fureys Wildflowers in the Median play, which was read immediately afterwards. Those in attendance seemed be on something of a height at this point, and by the end of Agnes reading we were ready as a group to come clean about a great many things. Wildflowers was a story of murder, loss, and forgiveness. It was a true story. I was asked to develop the former version of the play for this reading, and the cast was excellent. The response even better. There was a panel discussion with the cast and Agnes afterwards, in which she spoke eloquently about the loss of her daughter and grandson, and how it feels to survive that which seems out of order from the natural progression of life. As a mother, her children, nor grandchildren, should have had to leave this world before she did. She spoke of the anger and pain that consumed her, and how her reaching out to Leonard Scovens to nd out why led her to consider all the events in one mans life that made him who he was, and caused him to do what he did. Kurt Wadsworth Jr. was also in the discussion. He is currently walking 2,000 miles across Florida to end the death penalty in the state, and was on the local evening news recently, along with Agnes and others from our Scene events, in front of the Capitol building in Tallahassee. Kurt spoke about his brother, in and out of treatment, arrested numerous times, and eventually dead before he was 30. He was left to wonder what his life would have been like if there had been someone there to reach him to touch his spirit in a way that none of them, although they tried, could not. Kurts father, supporting his son in his cam-paign across the state, told his own story of facing 60 years in prison. If not for the intervention of a judge who took mercy on him and gave him a chance, he would be studying the ways of revenge and destruction, instead of practicing law, as he now does. Someone in the room asked the audience to come closer, for people were spread throughout. Once they did, things became a bit more intimate, and honest. Stories were revealed, including one from a young lady about a family member who as a juvenile was convicted of murdering his younger sister. Now that he is out of prison, his family struggles to not only love him, but to forgive him. Or the story of the woman, asked by a friend to be a part of our reading, and having never been involved in arts or performance before, revealed that for years she was for the death penalty because her teenage daughter had been raped by three men, and she wanted them to die. Shed even figured out a way to kill them herself. Like cancer or AIDS, the disease of violence had somehow infected every single person that sat in the room. It was apparent that many of them of us! had never spoken of these things in public before. This is what Scene was meant to do. And it did so with great impact. Finally, after more than an hour of confessions, tears, and comfort, we gathered in a circle and said one thing about the experience that just happened among us. A lady, possibly in her mid-50s, whom Ive never seen before, said that she had been a practicing Catholic who attended church services all of her life. When her turn came to comment, she said: Ive never seen God move like this. This is what church should be. Amen, sister.

While Paleontologist Diggery Diggers is showing his fossils to a live audience, he discovers a top secret box the museum accidentally packed. Curious, Diggery opens the box and unleashes the DinoSauroScope 3000 or DINA taking the audience back into time to interact with dinosaurs. All is well until they use DINA on a large dinosaur egg. The egg hatches and a terrible thing happens. The dinosaurs in museums around the world start to come alive! The only way to stop this dinosaur regeneration is to return the baby dinosaur back to its mother. Come along for a rocking dino adventure with Diggery and save the human race. The show has incredible props including large interactive animated characters, dinosaur bones, a giant dinosaur egg and beautiful puppets. Combined with intriguing magic and rocking music, this is the Story Ships most memorable adventure. Audience members constantly interact by digging up fossils, scanning with the DINA, helping solve puzzles and singing songs. All the fun starts at 7 p.m. on July 25. J.K ROWLING AS ROBERT GALBRAITH?! It came out this past weekend that J.K Rowling, the international bestselling author of the Harry Potter series, published a crime novel a few weeks back under the pseudonym, Robert Galbraith. Once this news broke, sales for the book (titled The Cuckoos Calling) jumped 570,000% (no thats not a typo) on Amazon.com. Other vendors and bookstores have also sold out of their copies as well. We have placed orders for the book and will have it available for checkout as soon as we get it in. We expect a high demand for this new book so your patience is greatly appreciated. SUMMER READING BOOKS UPDATE Were now more than halfway into July, and with the first day of school being the 15th of August, we strongly recommend that if your child hasnt at least put themselves on the waiting list for their grades summer reading that they do so as soon as they can. While we have purchased multiple copies of each summer reading book, due to increasing longer wait lists, we are rapidly approaching a date where we cant guarantee that your child will be able to get the book before school begins. If you or your child has an account with us were more than happy to add you to any waiting list over the phone. We also have copies available of some of the books via e-book for those who have a reader. Please dont hesitate to contact us if we can help you in any way.By SCOTT JOYNER Library Director Library News...

Im writing this to make a claim that my Daddy and I just might have caught the biggest sh ever caught up the St. Marks River in Wakulla County. Or maybe the biggest sh caught up any river in that county or a bunch of other counties. Now what Im talking about is up a fresh water river. I dont make a claim like that if its saltwater because we all know there are some monster sh in saltwater. No sir, Im talking fresh water. Lots of big bass and bream in fresh water rivers, but not many sh like this one. Its been a very long time ago, and I sure dont want the memory of it to fade and then be lost. Even now, its been so long ago that Im going to put in here the names of people, good friends of mine, who were around and might very well remember that great big sh. Those fellows who may remember me and my daddys sh, especially when they see the picture of it that Im going to include with this article are: Alan Boykin, Billy Moore, William Mock, Glen Roberts (no kin), and Eugene Cutchins. Now, here are the details: It all happened on my daddys dock at St. Marks sometime in the summer of about 1954. The deep sea shing boats had all left the dock with their parties on board, and it was nice and quiet, about midmorning, maybe around 9:30. I can see it as if it was yesterday. My daddy, E.W. Roberts, was in his of ce on the dock and I was walking along where the shing boats tie up, just enjoying the day. As I approached one of the party boats that had remained in port, the O.P., about a 40footer, named for Mr. O.P. Shields, something caught my eye. The O.P. was backed into its berth with the bow out into the river. What caught my eye as I approached the O.P., was the tail of a very large sh which I could see clearly in the water beneath the bow of the boat. That was all I could see of the sh as he was facing up river, slowly moving his tail back and forth to hold him steady facing up river. The tide was falling and he had to do that to hold his position facing upstream. Hardly believing my eyes, I ran to the dock of ce to tell daddy what I had seen. He took one look and correctly identi ed the sh as a Jew sh. Our politically correct society has since changed the name of the sh, fearing that maybe the Jewish folks would be offended because if you look at one of those sh, you have to admit its face isnt that pretty. They are now called Goliath grouper. You surely cant blame Jewish folks to be offended by that face, but Ive done some research and found that the Oxford English Dictionary quotes a 1697 source, an explorer who reported the naming of the sh. The explorers report: The Jew sh is a very good sh and I judge so called by the English because it hath scales and ns, therefore a clean sh according to the Levitical Laws. My daddy rigged up a strong leader wire, attached to it a very large sh hook and since it was handy, used the strong nylon anchor cable of the O.P. for his line. To the hook he af xed an entire mullet. Daddy then eased the bait down from the bow of the O.P. and left it suspended there about where that big Jew shs mouth would be. The remainder of the anchor line was left coiled on the bow, the end tied to a cleat. The Jew sh had left while we were doing all that and my dad went back to his work, telling me to keep an eye on that anchor line. He said if the sh came back it would likely take the bait, swallow it, and hook himself. Sure enough, about two hours later, movement caught my eye and I saw the anchor line rapidly uncoiling off the bow of the O.P. as the sh made a fast run downriver. I shouted for my dad and the battle was on! It took nearly an hour for my daddy and I to get that sh to tire enough that we could haul it up next to the boat. We got a man to bring a small boat around to see if it was possible to haul the sh into it, but that big sh had too much ght left in him, and even if the man was able to bring it aboard, the sh would likely tear up the boat and/or injure the man. This would never do on one of those sportsman fishing television shows, but this was before TV, and a man on a nearby boat owned a pistol and it was used to kill the sh with one shot behind the gills. The sh was then towed around to a small boat basin where a wench was located. The wench was there for hauling out the small boats for cleaning and upkeep. The Jewfish was hauled out of the water using that wench and photographed there. A man whose name I cannot recall, who was an avid spear sherman, was there on his boat and asked if he could pose with the sh. He stuck a spear in the sh and the photograph was taken. Other photographs were taken, but that one, included here, is the only one which has survived. The sh weighed in at 372 pounds. The state record in Florida for a Jew sh/Goliath Grouper is 680 pounds. So they do get much larger, but unless one of our readers can claim a larger one caught in fresh water comes forward, Im claiming this record catch for my daddy and me!
