Special Section Inside Today! By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net A non-pro t organization called Big Hearted Angels showed just how big their hearts are this past weekend as they served over 100 Wakulla families by providing a back-to-school shopping spree followed by a luncheon at zero cost to attendees.The event was held on Saturday Aug. 10, rst at Wal-Mart, where two school buses full of kids and volunteer chaperones were unloaded and sent on their way to shop for school supplies and clothing if needed. President of the organization and former Wakulla County resident, Trave Williams, began BHA in Lakeland in 2003 and the company was incorporated two years later. I started off with 25 kids and the money came directly from my pocket, said Williams. The second year we helped 125 kids and by 2005 we were helping 200 kids. Back then Williams had his sights set solely on Christmas shopping, but after just two years he had plans to do even more for those around him. After that I decided to come back to my roots and do a back-to-school shopping event, he said. BHA now has chapters that serve Leon and Gadsden counties, Polk County and reaches as far as Chattanooga, Tenn., where Williams former pastor moved and wanted to take BHA with him. But so far the reach of BHA is only the beginning, envisions Williams, who wants it to reach and be known nationwide. Id really like the community to join in and allow Big Hearted Angels to grow, he said, citing the help of the community as the catalyst to the success of BHA. We have open arms for anyone whod like to be a part of this. I want people to know what were about.

Ninety-three percent of teachers cast their ballot in Fridays vote. Its a groundbreaking vote on a ground-breaking contract, said Missy Rudd, President of the Wakulla Classroom Teachers Association. Our teachers have never seen this kind of salary increase, and after years of little to no raises, they deserve every penny. Raises range from $500 for developing teachers to $2,000 minimum for effective teachers to $2,300 minimum for highly effective teachers. The funding comes from Wakullas share of the Governors $480 million Teacher Salary Allocation.

The three friends with Davis assisted him back to shore where witnesses performed CPR until a Wakulla EMS Unit and WCSO deputies arrived on scene at 4:40 p.m. and also performed CPR. Efforts to revive Davis on the beach were unsuccessful. WCSO deputies have been successful in locating next of kin. An autopsy was conducted on Aug. 12 at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and the initial ndings of the autopsy were consistent with that of drowning. The Medical Examiner will also be issuing a nal report which will close the case investigation.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net After a months hiatus, the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth packed the TCC Wakulla Center meeting room full of neighborhood partners ready and eager to make things happen. To kick things off, County Commissioner Ralph Thomas provided coalition members with a brief update on where the county is with the community center and the YMCA. Thomas reported that the YMCA is currently in the midst of conducting its feasibility study, the results of which will determine their moving forward or not with establishing themselves in Wakulla. He explained that the results should be available soon and that, whether they are positive or negative, he feels con dent that something good will come out of the community center regardless. I want a community center, I want it to be highly successful and I want it to be able to serve our kids well, Thomas said. We already have well established jewels in this county that would do well to further the community center, we can run one with or without the YMCA. Thomas had been one of the two votes against moving forward with the YMCA at the June 17 commission meeting the other came from Commissioner Jerry Moore. Assistant Superintendent Beth ODonnell gave her rundown of issues pertaining to students going back to school this week. ODonnell brought up dual enrollment, highlighting the fact that high schoolers have the opportunity to graduate with a two year associate degree through the program, which could potentially save them thousands of college dollars. ODonnell also reported the cracking down on bullying and how the school system plans to implement the new statewide cyber-bullying legislation, which expands what the school district is allowed to punish if it happens while the children are both at school and, if it affects education, while theyre not at school as well. We are investigating every complaint and incident, she said. But, keep in mind everything is not considered as bullying. Weve had a parent want the arrest of a fourth grader because another one got water on their clothes. Were not going to do that. Some things have to be taken with a grain of salt, she said. According to ODonnell there will also be a new automotive technology program at the high school starting this year, for which WHS already has 50 kids signed up. It will be good exposure, she said of the course. It will look at green energy options and natural gas and will hopefully open up a lot of doors in the future for our kids. Detective Bruce Ashley gave his update on the WCSOs efforts to engage with kids at bus stops. The WCSO began the program late last year and had been able to reach and form relationships with about 700 families. Ashley said that the WCSO would continue their efforts this year at the roughly 2,000 bus stops throughout the county and that the initiative helps to give kids, caregivers and bus drivers peace of mind while leaving a lasting impact on those involved. Ashley also touched on bullying and relayed information that can be found on the WCSO website that helps readers to identify bullying and what to look for. The document is called What Parents Should Know About Bullying. Ashley and ODonnell also touched on both the importance and availability of community service hours that are part of Bright Futures scholarship requirements. As many of those in the room would have the opportunity to help with events that could provide hours, she reminded those in the room that the hours must be approved through the school ahead of time and that kids can start earning hours immediately after graduating from the eighth grade. Get them to knock it out as soon as possible, she said. You dont want to be a senior in high school juggling school work, work and other activities and still need 100 hours. NAMI Wakulla will be starting its 12 week family to family course beginning Aug. 22 at Myra Jeans Restaurant at 5:30 p.m. The course is offered at no cost. The organization reported that it is very busy and helping more and more people each week, which means they are looking for help. The organization hopes to nd more volunteers wishing to receive training so that they can hold more programs. NAMI is also planning to start a connections program with the Correctional Institute. It was reported at the meeting by Layne Davis that Operation Santa is up and running and that volunteers are needed for the event, which is expected to be held at the community center. Anyone who wishes to help should contact Davis at 519-2140. The Coalitions next meeting will be Sept. 4 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at the TCC Wakulla Center, in the Centennial Bank building. 000FR47 Erectile Dysfunction Drugs May Be Dangerous To Your HealthFREE book by doctor reveals what the 1305 Coastal Hwy. 98, PanaceaHome of the All-U-Can Eat Seafood & Chicken www.thewakullanews.comServing Wakulla County For More Than A CenturyThe Wakulla News BREAKFAST PARTNER...

The owner of a successful wood-selling business in Lakeland, Williams is pushing for further growth of the charitable organization he founded. Its a ministry that God gave me to do and Ive relied on faith and have been very successful, he said of BHA. My wife and I have put a lot of time and money into it, but we rejoice and enjoy every minute of it. To date the organization has about 30 people all together who spearhead the projects in their perspective regions, plus the many volunteers, community members and businesses who contribute their time, efforts and money to BHA. According to Williams, funding for the projects comes from private citizens and donations from branches of Publix and Wal-Mart. He explains that 100 percent of the donations that BHA receives goes to the children. Every penny that we are given goes to them, he said. Plus a little out of our own pockets. Williams cousin, Sherry Miller, together with her two daughters, is one of those who helped put together Leon and Gadsdens rst Christmas shopping event through BHA last year, which she says, was a great success. I dont know how he does it, she said of her cousin. But he has his business, multiple chapters and somehow he manages to get everything done. I just feel so blessed to be a part of this. BHAs Vice President Dr. Wayne Dickens is an educator at a vocational school in Lakeland. He attended the same church as Williams and saw what he was doing with BHA and wanted to be a part of it. As part of the school system for the past 24 years, he said, Ive seen the need that is there over the years and really had it on my heart to help. As one of 10 children, Dickens said he understands how hard it can be sometimes to raise a family and the importance of giving back. Thats where we get our blessings from, he said. As long as theres a need were going to try to ll it. Were thrilled to be able to help the kids any way that we can. Williams credits the success of his program, especially the event held in Wakulla on Saturday, in large part to the countys school system. Im so blessed to have the school systems involved, he said. Through them, weve gotten a lot of people to step aboard because they know that if the schools are supporting us, we must be a legitimate cause. Along those lines, said Williams, he intends for BHA to be an educational program, not just a gift giving event. We try to educate the kids about discipline, love and compassion. On that note, Williams remembered how he lost his mother at 13 and, he said, how a lot of older people come into his life to help him to keep moving in a positive direction. If it hadnt have been for them reaching out to me, theres no telling what would have happened to me, he said. But thats what I am trying to do now through this program. Its my turn to help others the way I was helped back then. At Crawfordville Elementary, kids were reunited with their families and invited to stay for a hearty meal and a ceremony. I want to thank Wakulla County and the children from the bottom of my heart, William said before the meal. It couldnt have gone any better. May God bless you and keep you.

The purpose of the program is to support revitalization efforts by funding environmental assessment, cleanup and job training activities. The city is looking to add to the several revitalization projects that it has accomplished over recent years. The Brown elds grant is for the old St. Marks Refinery site, which is contaminated. Through an official evaluation system in which they scored both packets separately on paper, city commissioners unanimously chose Cardno Engineering Company. The next steps for the process will be the citys attendance of an EPA Browns elds grantee workshop on Aug. 22, after which a contract may be formulated. City Manager Zoe Mansfield also brought the commissions attention the Department of Economic Opportunity Technical Assistance Grant Program that the city had recently received along with the county in the amount of $35,000. What that money will do is help bring down our community rating, said Mans eld. Right now our city rating is Class A and the county has a rating of seven. She explained that the desired rating is a six and that, through the grant, improvements will be made possible which will help with ood insurance rates for both the city and residents. Man eld also presented three bids submitted for maintenance work to be done on the citys wastewater treatment plant. As requirements by the state would dictate the same level of quality from each bidder, the city voted to go with the low bid, which was about $2,000 from McDonald Group International out of Inverness. Fire Chief Ronnie Day with the St. Marks Volunteer Fire Department reported that they would not be signing the new contract agreement given to them by the county. According to Day too many changes were proposed, including giving overall authority of the citys fire department to the countys re chief. Were volunteers, he said. We own our own building and equipment and this would give the county full control over all of that. Day said that the citys volunteer re department has been butting heads with the countys fire chief since he was established in his position. I just wanted to make you all aware of what was going on and that at this time we are not signing a contract. The level of service that we provide is not going to change. City Attorney Ron Mowrey advised commission members that he wished to schedule a ood ordinance workshop in the near future, as the ordinance needs to be updated. He also lled in commissioners on his intent to bring back new procedures for citizens to be heard as he said recent laws have been put into place governing requirements relating to the subject. Billy Bishop briefly updated on Waterfronts next project, which will be the yacht clubs boat parade to be held in December. However, right now most efforts are going towards Stone Crab Festival details. The festival is slated for Oct. 26. Local citizen Chip Cof n attended Thursdays meeting to offer volunteer work to the city in any way he could. I love St. Marks, he said. Im not here to fuss or ask you for anything. Im here to try to offer you something. Cof n had previously gone around the city at night surveying street lamps and marking the ones that were inoperative. He presented his finding to the commission on Thursday. I dont want you to pay for something youre not getting, he said. From Page 1A Witnesses reported that the victim was out on a sandbar 100 yards offshore when he lost consciousness while swimming. He was at the beach with three friends.The friends attempted to assist the victim back to the shore and CPR was administered by witnesses on scene. Wakulla EMS administered CPR to the victim to no avail. Witnesses reported alcohol being consumed on the scene by members of the party. Sheriff Creel warned swimmers not to consume alcohol while engaged in marine activities and always pay attention to the rip currents. Deputy Alan Middlebrooks, Capt. Chris Savary, Lt. Sherrell Morrison and two members of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission assisted EMS at the scene.Man reported drowned at Mashes SandsFrom Page 1A Salary adjustments/ raises are based on 2012-13 evaluations and will be re ected in teachers August pay checks. If you remember, the legislature originally wanted to award these raises in June 2014, Rudd said. The Florida Education Association stopped that at. Why should teachers have to wait another year for a raise they earned a year ago? This is a recurring raise, or adjustment. Every year Line 87 of the General Appropriations Act is funded, teachers will receive additional dollars for salary adjustments. That is good, Rudd said, because we absorbed a 5 percent health insurance increase and we are still paying the 3 percent retirement contribution. WCTA and the school district negotiated the contract in June, and the school board approved it in July. WCTA thanks Superintendent Bobby Pearce, Chief Financial Officer Randy Beach, Chief Human Capital Of cer Karen Wells and our School Board members for the innovative vision and focus to get as much money to as many teachers as soon as possible, Rudd said. The Wakulla Classroom Teachers Association has served Wakulla teachers since 1975. It is a part of the 140,000-teacher strong Florida Education Association, which represents pre K-12 teachers, higher education faculty, educational support professionals, students at our colleges and universities preparing to become teachers and retired education employees.Wakulla teachers ratify contractCITY OF ST. MARKS CITY OF SOPCHOPPYBrown elds grant scored By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net Controversy continues to brew in relation to the Sopchoppy city election that took place on June 11. The election had swept two African American city commissioners, Mayor Colleen Skipper-Mitchell and Anginita Rosier, from of ce. Skipper Mitchell lost reelection by a single vote, Rosier by 26. Allegations of the mishandling of absentee ballots, voter suppression tactics and canvassing board irregularities led Rosier to le a complaint with the Florida Division of Elections on Monday, June 18. Rosiers complaints are currently being taken up by the Florida Division of Law Enforcement as a spokesperson con rmed this week that they are currently conducting an investigation into the Sopchoppy election. As it is an ongoing investigation, a con rmation is all the agency would release. Back in June, City Clerk Jackie Lawhon was surprised by the allegations. She denied any wrongdoing and said she had received no complaints about the election processes. I would not have even known about all of this if it had not been for the media calling and asking, she said at the time. All I wanted was a fair election, Rosier said in June. I certainly understand and accept that in politics there are winners and there are losers. However, when individuals feel the need to resort to malicious tactics that not only violate a persons civil rights but violates the law in the process it becomes a problem that affects this community as a whole.FDLE confirms investigation into electionLYNDA KINSEYWakulla News editor William Snowden accepts certi cate of appreciation from Friends of Wakulla Springs President Ron Piasecki at a reception at Wakulla Springs on Thursday, Aug. 8.

Page 4A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comreaders speak out The Opinion PageEditor, The News: Why would four of our ve Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners lead you to believe that state agencies have adequate regulations in place to protect our wetlands? Commissioner Richard Harden proposed the total elimination of the Wakulla County Wetland Ordinance. Commissioner Ralph Thomas stated, With the current state and federal safeguards in place, a local Wakulla ordinance is just not necessary anymore. To suggest that the Department of Environmental Protection and the Northwest Florida Water Management District have a similar set of regulations for wetland protection, or the same thing as we currently have with the Wakulla County Wetlands Ordinance, is simply not true not even close to the truth. After doing considerable research and speaking to a number of wetland experts, I have put together the following list of facts. Nowhere in any written information provided by either DEP or NWFWMD is there any suggestion that our current 75-foot buffer would be considered as a wetland protection buffer. Rather, it would immediately drop to a 25-foot maximum buffer under state guidelines. This maximum state buffer is subject to reduction to a 15-foot buffer, that may then be reduced to no buffer if it is determined that the wetland will not be adversely impacted. The buffer requirements would be determined on a case-by-case basis, with no standardization, by a staff that is already discouraged from regulating wetland protection. An applicant is required to ll out an Environmental Resource Permit, simply an important sounding document that streamlines the permitting process to speed up development. As for isolated wetlands, they will be subject to lling if determined environmentally insigni cant, again subjective, with no standardized regulations. Those are the facts. Bottom line, both agencies use subjective analysis to determine the importance of any given wetland. Based on past history, it is indeed likely that most, if not all applicants, will be given the minimum variance allowed zero. Buffers will be radically reduced or eliminated and isolated wetlands will be subject to lling without our current wetland ordinance. This is what we can expect when these two agencies take over regulating wetlands in Wakulla County and our BOCC washes their hands of their responsibility to protect our wetlands. Add to these facts that a number of attorneys who have successfully prosecuted wetland violators have recently been red from DEP, and the picture gets even bleaker. The staff that remains works under a cloud of uncertainty as to future employment, should they apply any form of strict regulation (25-feet max) or worse yet, prosecution of offenders. Like most state agencies, NWFWMD is overloaded and short staffed. These are the two agencies that these four commissioners want us to count on to protect our wetlands? Our wetlands are absolutely essential for clean water, commercial and sport shing, tourism, sustaining wildlife and about protecting our property rights. Many homes were ooded in Wakulla County last summer as heavy rains had no place to go due to lling of isolated wetlands and swampy areas. Who was protecting the property rights of those unsuspecting homeowners? Yes, this is about our property rights. Ninety percent of those speaking out are opposed to what this BOCC is doing, yet they march stubbornly on. If these four commissioners choose to continue down this path, the next step will be to let the people decide in November, when incidentally, two of these four commissioners (Randy Merritt and Jerry Moore) are up for re-election. Of course voting them out of of ce is one option to consider, but the damage will have been done large tracts of coastal property with wetlands will be divided at a breakneck pace, as is being planned. What Im referring to is having the wetlands issue put on the November ballot for the people to decide, and hold off on any changes in the meantime. This can only happen if an army of volunteers go door-todoor getting signatures. A group called Wakulla Wetlands Alliance has been formed and plans to do that very thing. Watch the wetland issue closely, its not going away anytime soon, it will be here right up until election time in November, when the people will be allowed to chose. Commissioners Thomas, Harden, Merritt and Moore need to get their facts straight and then realize that it is up to them, our county of cials, to protect our wetlands and quit suggesting that the state will do it for us because they cannot, and they will not. Its easy to nd case after case where the state has failed to protect wetlands. Hows that worked out for south Florida? This is what they want us to count on? This is what they feel is acceptable for our county? The state should be adopting the Wakulla County Wetlands Ordinance as their standard, not the other way around.

Mr. Crum would like to ask you to release him of that obligation so he can discuss what happened in that issue. Would you do the same? Misinformation is dangerous, no matter what the source. Since I was completely unaware of any real or implied non-disclosure agreement that I had involving me, a Mr. Crum, and the county, nor am I aware of any lawsuit involving me and a Mr. Crum, I asked our county staff and county attorney if there was any such agreement. Staff of the Wakulla County Clerk of the Court searched their les and did not nd anything regarding non-disclosure agreements between Kessler and Crum. On Tuesday, Aug. 6, I received an e-mail from Heather Encinosa, Wakulla County Attorney, stating that I am unaware of any non-disclosure agreement relating to this matter. In as far as I can verify, a Mr. Crum (there are several Mr. Crums in this county) is not constrained by any real or implied non-disclosure agreement with Wakulla County and/or me. Obviously, I cannot speak for the county commission or county government in responding to Mr. Crums alleged request. However, whoever this Mr. Crum is, he has my permission to disclose and discuss whatever he wishes. Consistent with my strong belief in open and fully transparent government, all such matters as this should be fully available to the public eye. I further request that Commissioner Moore produce the agreement he referred to, if any such agreement exists. If Commissioner Moore is unable to do so, he should apologize for wasting staffs time and my time, and he should apologize to the citizens and county commissioners for having to deal with some non-existing non-disclosure agreement. Howard Kessler, MD Crawfordville Editor, The News: My name is Michelle Ballard and I volunteer with a 501(c)3 charitable organization in Crawfordville called Cauzican Animal Rescue. CAR rescues animals from high kill shelters and works to nd them forever loving homes. CAR is having a bene t event on Aug. 31 called Woofstock: Peace, Love, and Puppies. There will be live music, vendors, food, a raffle, an agility course and many adoptable animals looking for their forever families. I have attached a link to the events Facebook webpage, which is at https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/ events/650215388324089/ I was wondering if it would be possible to have Woofstock mentioned in The Wakulla News? If there is any other information I can provide, please let me know. Thank you for your consideration! Michelle Ballard MonticelloEditor, The News: Something new has been added to the road leading to Spring Creek, Live Oak, Oyster Bay and Shell Point. I think that I can safely speak on behalf of all these communities when I say, Thank you, Larry Hess. For the past few weeks, I have been fascinated by construction going on at the intersection of Spring Creek Road and Shell Point Road. First bricks were delivered, then a fence was placed at the vee with roses planted inside the fence. Additional plants were added to the rear of the sizeable piece of land and nally for days I watched workers building a structure was it to be a bait and tackle shop, a barbecue as somebody opined, or a garage? I had heard all these possibilities but in reality Mr. Hess was planning a tribute to the community that he obviously loves. Last week as I turned into the street I was expecting to see more tractors and workers but instead I witnessed the nal steps in what might well become known as the Gateway to Appalachee Bay. Mr. Hess had designed perhaps one of the most outstanding entrances to a neighborhood that Wakulla County, or for that matter any Florida county, has been honored to have. It not only has an attractive sign highlighting our four communities but more important there are scenes of our natural beauty painted on either side. These two paintings were done by well-known local artists Nell Schulz and Helen Livingston and are just beautiful. They are large (maybe 4 feet by 5 feet or so) and re ect the uniqueness of our county and the bay. Larry has brought a new sense of pride to our neighborhood and the appreciation that we all carry for the beauty around us has been magni ed by his generous tribute to where we live.

By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGGod of all knowledge and wisdom, we lift up our prayers to you in preparation for the start of school for a new academic year. Our prayers surround all of the children in our community who are heading into a new school year. Be with them as they start afresh with new potential and possibilities. Especially bless and be with those who have learning challenges, or are hurting physically or emotionally, or are grieving. Help each student to focus and learn, to be shaped and stretched into the potential you place within them. Lead them in choosing friends and making choices that will build them up, not tear them down and that will build others up, not tear them down. Guide them in learning to deal with bullies and learning to show compassion to those who are often left out and hurting. May they discover they are loved and valued, through Your perfect love owing through us. We pray for parents who are devoted to their childrens learning and growing, and we pray for parents who may lack the interest, skills, nances, or health to fully invest themselves in the education of their children. For children dealing daily with family issues of alcohol, drugs, or abuse, help them to not only survive but rise above their circumstances through those who help mentor, protect, and nurture them. Help us to be mindful and responsive to any child in danger or in need. We pray for the teachers, administration, food staff, custodians, bus drivers, guidance counselors, volunteers, and all who serve in the educational process with our children. Grant them the skills, the patience, and the love for the important roles they play in the lives of the children of our community. Bless each of these in our community, in our state, in our nation, but also in countries around the world where education is not as valued or as accessible. As we grow in knowledge, may we also grow in wisdom and in the power of realizing we are interrelated locally and globally. May we make the world a better place, starting right here in our own corner of the world, one child at a time. To the glory of God we pray, Amen. Rev. Dr. Betsy Goehrig is pastor and New Church Planter with the Disciples of Christ Church.

(850) 926-7102 Amish aint always Amish OUT TO PASTORBy JAMES L. SNYDERRecently, it was my privilege to go to a convention in Ohio in the middle of a large Amish/ Mennonite community. I looked forward to this very much because I grew up in Lancaster County in Pennsylvania, which has many Amish/Mennonite communities. I was expecting quite a bit as I packed my bags to leave. Are you sure you got everything? A phrase reiterated to me by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. To which I responded by saying, Yes, for the umpteenth time I got everything. This in and of itself was to guarantee me I would forget something, usually essential in my travel. Then when I get home, I will be reminded that I was reminded to make sure I got everything. Nothing, at this point, could deter my high-level expectation of going into an Amish/Mennonite community. My great eagerness was looking forward to indulging in one of my favorite desserts: the shoo y pie. Nobody makes shoo y pie quite like those wonderful Amish people. To make matters even more enticing, I would not have anybody sitting next to me reminding me I had enough shoo y pie. I fully intended to gorge myself on as much shoo y pie as my wallet could handle. In my book, there is no such thing as too much shoo y pie. I drove 15 hours to get to this little town in Ohio. Every mile creating anticipation for my dessert delicacy awaiting me in some Amish restaurant. The convention I was attending ended Sunday morning at lunch. I, being the grandiose Know-It-All, decided to skip the Sunday lunch and look for a restaurant to indulge in my delectable delicacy. The thing I forgot was it was Sunday in an Amish/ Mennonite community. If you have never been in such a community, let me inform you that on Sunday the only thing open are churches. During the week, I made a list of several Amish restaurants. I had plans of visiting each of them before I left and having shoo y pie, a whole pie, in each restaurant. When I got to the rst restaurant, it finally hit me. This was Sunday and everything in an Amish/ Mennonite community was closed. I do not usually go to a restaurant on Sunday unless it is some special occasion. I was a little chagrined to realize everything was closed. This only heightened my anticipation of the shoo y pie delicacy awaiting me come tomorrow. At times it feels like tomorrow will never come, but eventually tomorrow came and I awoke with a song on my lips, a pang of hunger in my stomach and a desire to indulge in a shoo y delicacy. I nally arrived at my rst Amish restaurant and I was drooling so much I could hardly tell the hostess I was just a party of one. Boy, what a party it was going to be. Being a gentleman, I contained myself as best I could and ordered a very scrumptious repast. Nobody can cook like those Amish women. Oh, what a lunch I had. I think what made it so wonderful was the dessert expectation hovering over me like an angelic halo. Just as I was nishing my lunch the lovely young waitress, all dressed in Amish attire, came by inquiring if I would like to see the dessert menu. No, I said with a delectable determination, I know exactly what I want for dessert. We exchanged smiles. I have no idea what she was smiling about; maybe the anticipatory tip. I knew what I was smiling about; the anticipatory dessert. I tried to contain myself and carefully pace out my instructions. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible, I will have a piece of shoo y pie. In fact, why dont you bring me the whole pie. And with that, I smiled. The waitress looked at me rather strangely and said, What kind of pie do you want? Being the kind of person who enjoys a good oldfashioned joke, I responded, Ha ha ha. A shoo y pie, if you please. Whats a shoo y pie? I can take a joke as well as anybody but there comes a time when all jokes need to be put aside and bring on the shoo y pie. This is an Amish restaurant, isnt it? Yes, it is, she smiled patiently. Youve heard of a shoo y pie, havent you? No, Ive never heard of such a pie. I cannot tell you the depth of disappointment this brought to me. As it turned out, only the Amish/Mennonite in Lancaster County know anything about shoofly pies. Not all Amish are the same even though they look alike. The apostle Paul understood this kind of disappointment. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable (1 Corinthians 15:19 KJV). I have had many disappointments in life and many people have disappointed me, but I have found in Jesus Christ no disappointment whatsoever. All legitimate hope is in Jesus.Rev. James L.

A back-to-school prayer HEAVENS TO BETSYSpecial to The NewsThere are several indicators that organized religion is on the decline, not just in Western Europe, but also in the United States. Only 37 percent of Americans believe clergy contribute significantly to societys well-being, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. Even among regular church goers, only about half, 52 percent, say clergy contribute a lot to the betterment of society. Gallup and Pew polls provide these other indicators: Two-thirds of Americans say religion is losing its in uence in our lives. Since the 1970s, Americans confidence in organized religion has steadily decreased. As of 2012, the downward trend hit an all-time low: only 44 percent of Americans have a great deal of confidence in organized religion. America is still the most devoutly religious rst world country other Pew polls indicate that most teens and 20-somethings still consider themselves spiritual, and roughly half of U.S. adults are still faithful to a religion, says Wade Fransson, a former minister in the Worldwide Church of God a religion eventually denounced as a cult and author of The People of the Sign, a memoir recounting his life with the church. While Fransson has experienced rsthand the liabilities of extremist elements in religion, he says religion and spirituality still offer society important bene ts: Religion often drives innovation and progressive social mores.

Biney Lewis Ailstock Hixon Dale Thomas institution of marriage or the very devout pilgrims who helped pave the way for what would become the United States? Would there have been another human-based institution to champion the Golden Rule in quite the same way as the worlds religions have done, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Bah Faith, Confucianism, Sikhism, Taoism and others? Our morals are fundamentally rooted in the history of religion, and throwing out religion would truly be like throwing out the baby with the bathwater, Fransson says. Faith groups are responsible for much of the worlds charity work. Heres a quick glimpse of just a few of the charities created by religious groups: Salvation Army, YMCA, St. Judes Hospital, Habitat for Humanity International, International Prison Ministry, Intercristo, World Relief, Remuda, Christian Aid USA/Canada and the list goes on. Across the country and around the world millions of faith groups contribute daily to their communities, from feeding the hungry to educating the poor. Religions bad apples get plenty of press, but the fundamental core of faith, worship and devotion to something bigger than ourselves remains essentially good. Humans are by nature spiritual; ignoring our spirituality can be dangerous. In recent years there has been a con ned yet noticeable spring of atheistic books, including Sam Harris The End of Faith, elaborating on how religions role in society has long been a damaging one. But atheists promoting a decidedly anti-religious message, who would prefer religion to be con ned to the past, offer little or no alternative to a human beings innate longing for spirituality, or a deeper meaning to life other than whats merely apparent and material. I call it The Search that is, that urge we all share for signi cance amid this vast and mysterious universe, Fransson says. I suspect theres an element of truth another piece to the puzzle dwelling within each religion or spiritual system, and we should all deeply consider and appreciate the transcending beliefs of others. Should organized religion lose its place in society?From Page 6ASpecial to The NewsNow, you really can live forever, but thats not necessarily a good thing. Many of your online accounts from automatic bill payments to eBay may remain active after you pass away, unless you take steps to ensure they dont, says attorney Hillel Presser, author of Financial Self-Defense (Revised Edition), www.assetprotectionattorneys.com. Automatic bill pay, for example, can theoretically keep tapping your bank account long after youre gone or, at least, until your money is. Its important to make sure your online bank and shopping accounts, even your social media, can be closed out, or that your loved ones are authorized to access them, Presser says. You may ask, Why would I care if Im gone? I can tell you from experience: because it can create real headaches, and more heartache, for your family. Bank and shopping accounts will be vulnerable to identity theft, which would affect your estate if someone opens credit cards in your name. You might have valuable intellectual property, like domain names. They may need access to your health records, particularly if you died under questionable circumstances, he says. Theres the sentimental stuff photos and emails -that your family may want as a remembrance of you, and the libraries of music and ebooks, which may represent a considerable investment on your part. The problem is, even if you provide a family member with all of your accounts, log-ins and passwords, they may not be legally allowed to access them, Presser says. In many cases, they may be violating the accounts terms of service or violatingfederal privacy and computer fraud laws. Some states have laws governing online materials, but theyre different and which of your accounts are covered depends on where the provider is located. What can you do to ensure your family isnt left with a virtual nightmare after your passing? Presser offers these tips: Create a list of all of your accounts, including log-in names, passwords, and answers to any security questions. Obviously, your list will need to be securely stored. Since youll need to update it regularly as you add accounts or change passwords, it will be easiest if you keep the list on your computer in a password-protected folder. Some versions of Windows allow you to create protected folders, but you may need to get third-party software to do this, such as freeAxCrypt. Remember to create a backup of your list, whether its on a jump drive or printed out on paper. Store the backup in a secure place such as a safe deposit box. Do not put password information in your will, which is a public document. If you have a Google account, set up the new inactive account manager. In May 2013, Google became the first site to give users an option for choosing what becomes of their content if they should become debilitated or die. Under the pro le button, click Account, scroll down to Account Management, and youll nd instructions for Control what happens to your account when you stop using Google. You can select how long the account should be inactive before your plans are set into motion; choose to whom you want to offer content, such as YouTube videos, Gmail, Google+ posts, Blogger and Picasa web albums, or whether it should simply be deleted. Appoint a digital executor. Perhaps the simplest way to ensure your online life is taken care of is to appoint a digital executor a tech-savvy person who will be willing and able to carry out your wishes. Authorize the person to access your inventory of log-in information and spell out what you want done with each account, whether its providing access to loved ones or business partners, or deleting it. The digital world has grown and transformed so rapidly, the law hasnt kept up, which makes managing your digital afterlife challenging, Presser says. Until there are more consistent laws and procedures governing this area, its best to plan ahead, leave clear instructions and be sure you have a list of accounts where your estate lawyer or a loved one can nd it and access it, he says. It will make a world of difference to your survivors.Plan ahead for your online hereafterAsset protection lawyer o ers 3 steps to take nowSpecial 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.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunitySpecial to The NewsOn Aug. 1, Commissioner Ralph Thomas met with Representative Steve Southerland in Washington DC to discuss issues that are vital to Wakulla County. The County currently receives an annual payment in lieu of taxes from the US Department of the Interior for National Forests within Wakulla County. The program was up for reauthorization on June 2012; however, Congress did not reauthorize it, but did extend it for one year through June 2013. Currently, the US DOI has it in their budget for 2013-14. If this program is not reauthorized or included in the US DOI budget on a continual basis, Wakulla County will lose these dollars. The FY 2012-13 payment is approximately $259,824, based on 172,367 acres of National Forest. Wakulla County also receives funding from the US Department of Agriculture through a federal revenue sharing program for counties with National Forests, known as the Secure Rural Schools Act. These funds are generated from timber harvests from National Forests located within counties, such as Wakulla. This program expired in 2012 and was not reauthorized, but was extended one year. These funds are in jeopardy and it appears they will be impacted by the Congressional sequestration. Last year Wakulla received $152,191 for this program. Rep. Southerland has cosponsored the Restoring Healthy Forests for Healthy Communities Act (HR 1526) legislation introduced by Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings. This proposal would renew the federal governments commitment to manage forest resources for the bene t of rural schools and counties and require active forest management in areas speci cally identi ed by the U.S. Forest Service as capable of timber production. Commission Thomas presented Representative Southerland with an Of cial Wakulla County Ball Cap. More than 100 years ago, the federal government committed to actively manage our forests and share the revenue generated with counties that contain National Forest lands said Commissioner Thomas. That commitment is now being broken. We are fortunate to have Congressman Southerland as our Representative. He understand rural north Florida and is ghting to restore a healthy management of our forests and the revenue stream it produces. Commissioner Thomas personally paid all of his own travel and lodging expenses without tax payers dollars.Special to The NewsOn June 10, at the summer conference for the Florida Court Clerks and Comptrollers, the special guest speaker of the General Session was Chief Justice Ricky Polston of the Florida Supreme Court. Justice Polston, who is also a CPA, has been a friend of Wakulla Clerk of Court Brent Thurmond, since his days as an attorney, prior to becoming a judge. Thurmond invited the Chief Justice to speak and introduced him to the audience. The topic covered was the joint effort between the Judiciary and the Clerks of Florida of taking the courts paperless. Like Clerk Brent Thurmond, who grew up in Crawfordville, Justice Polston grew up in Graceville Florida. As one special note of interest, Justice Polston and his wife have 10 children, including 6 adopted siblings. As a father of three, Thurmond said the similarities stop there.Special to The NewsCalling all volunteers! Or as we like to call them, "Santas Elves." Christmas is starting early for Operation Santa.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolBy MELISSA MARTIN Riversink TeacherWhat an amazing experience!! We recently returned from the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas where we took our student designed experiment aboard a microgravity aircraft as part of NASAs Microgravity eXperience. This opportunity was made possible through the partnership between NASAs Teaching from Space Of ce and the Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program. Aboard our ight were the six other teacher teams selected from around the nation to participate in this cycle of Micro GX. This adventure began last year when the students from our five classrooms were told about the MicroGX opportunity. The students and teachers immediately started brainstorming ideas about experiments that could be conducted in microgravity. Many of their ideas related to the reactions of liquids in a microgravity environment. This led our students to discussions about liquids in our community and what makes Wakulla County unique. Many of our students are familiar with the beautiful local springs, rivers, marshes and beaches in the area and thought it would be great if we could take these liquids aboard the aircraft. The experiment uses water from Wakulla Springs State Park and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. The nal experiment was designed to explore the immiscibility of oil and water from our natural resources. The ground based experiment in class revealed that oil and water mix brie y, and then separate within approximately 5-12 seconds depending on the type of oil used. The students wanted to nd out if the results would be different in microgravity. The students were also curious about how to separate the oil and water if they did mix in space. The students suggested spinning the bottle to separate the liquids, so the teachers began constructing a device that could create centrifugal force in microgravity. Once aboard the aircraft we prepared to conduct the experiment as the pilot took 32 roller coaster like climbs and dips in order to create periods of micro and hyper gravity ranging from 0gs to 2gs. As you can tell by our photographs, the oil and water stayed somewhat mixed during microgravity and it was only until we used centrifugal force that they separated. We had the fortune of ying with Astronaut Mike Fincke, who expressed great interest in our students experiment. He explained that bubbles in liquids are a real problem that astronauts face aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and that the only way they are able to remove the bubbles is by spinning the containers. It was fascinating to hear him say our experiment was relevant and important to space research. Way to go otters! We cant wait for school to start this year so we can share more videos and pictures with our students. Riversink teachers are back from NASA Johnson Space CenterAbove, Melissa Martin, Katrina Roddenberry, below, Jennifer Williams, Molly Jones and Cassandra Burnham.PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSpecial to The NewsFive Big Bend teachers spent their summer as MagLab interns, learning skills related to cuttingedge magnet science. Now theyre ready to bring their newfound skills and renewed enthusiasm for science back to their classrooms. This has been a really wonderful experience for me, said Katrina Roddenberry, a 5th-grade teacher at Riversink Elementary in Crawfordville. It made me excited about science and about being able to share with my students how scientists actually do things. Its going to be a really good school year. She took pictures of several MagLab scientists working notebooks to show her new students this fall, as she wants them to keep science notebooks, too. Im also going to share with my students how much the scientists at the MagLab collaborate with each other, Roddenberry said. I think that will help them appreciate the importance of learning to work together in groups, which is something we do a lot of. Roddenberry was one of a dozen K-12 instructors accepted into the MagLabs prestigious 6-week internship program, which provides each teacher with a $3,600 stipend. The other four Big Bend interns came from Leon Countys Deerlake Middle and Astoria Park Elementary schools and the Challenger Learning Center, and Gadsden Countys Shanks Middle School. Each teacher was paired with one or more MagLab scientists and mentors. The Big Bend teachers learned about superconductivity, nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetometers. This experience reminded me of how much I like science, said Joy Breman, a 2008 Lincoln High School and 2012 Florida State University graduate who will be a teacher at the Challenger Learning Center this fall. It reminded me why I want kids to understand how the world works and why knowing how it works matters. We made proteins, Breman, 23, said of her lab project. We wanted to see how the protein that we made interacted with other proteins. Adreanna Gimenez, meanwhile, spent her time at the lab learning about a synthetic material, niobium tin (Nb3Sn), which is a superconducting material that allows electricity to ow without resistance (or loss of power). Formerly a teacher at Crossroad Academy Charter School in Quincy, Gimenez, 29, will be a rst-grade teacher at Tallahassees Astoria Park this fall. I strongly believe that the primary grades provide the foundation for all learning, she said. In the early years, there seems to be a focus on language skills and math, but I also want to incorporate lots of science into my lessons. Now that I have science experience in the real world, I just know Im going to be better prepared to teach my students. Gadsden County teacher Hilary Dennis said that presenting his lab project on magnetometers (instruments used for measuring magnetic forces) on a poster has convinced him to use a similar method in his classroom. I want my students to work in groups and build a poster about their science project that they can print, said Dennis, who has taught in Gadsden County for more than two decades. This experience was dif cult when I rst began, but now, when I look at my poster, I feel like I have really accomplished something. Im feeling really good. Erin Smidt, a 7thand 8th-grade teacher at Deerlake Middle School who teamed with Roddenberry, said she, too, is excited about sharing some of what she learned with her students. Working with scientist mentors Jianyi Jiang and Eric Hellstrom at the labs Applied Superconductivity Center, she and Roddenberry examined superconducting wires wires made from materials that conduct electricity without resistance if kept incredibly cold. The wires she studied may ultimately end up in a small but powerful magnet. I never knew about superconductors before I came here, Smidt said. I think It will be exciting to teach my students a little bit about superconductivity and about working with this cutting-edge material, the Bi-2212, that will eventually be used in ITER, which my middleschoolers have probably never heard about either. ITER (pronounced eater) is an acronym for International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor. ITER is an international fusion project that sounds like science fiction. Its goal is to create a star, suspend it in a magnetic eld and tap into its energy to provide the world with clean power. To do that requires a great deal of superconducting wire. Smidt worked with the superconducting wire Bi2212, made from bismuth, strontium, calcium and copper oxide. Wakulla, Leon, Gadsden teachers tackle pioneering science Riversink Elementary 5th Grade Teacher Katrina Roddenberry.Special to The News By JONATHON MORRIS WHS NJROTCThe Wakulla High School NJROTC program is eagerly anticipating another successful school year. This is in part due to a record 97 highly motivated cadets who completed our boot camp in June. We have a full slate of activities planned for the year beginning with our 21st annual sh fry on Sept. 27 sponsored by Mr. Noah Posey. A policy was adopted when the unit was established to offer equal opportunity to cadets to participate fully in NJROTC without regard for their familys economic status. Hence, fundraising has become a critical element of our program with our sh fry and annual spring golf tournament providing the bulk of the funds. We are exceedingly grateful for the abundant support we receive from our countys citizens each year in these fundraising efforts. We are also greatly involved in community service activities throughout the county helping our cadets learn the importance of serving others. Examples include cleaning about 4.5 miles of adopted roadway every six weeks, assisting with all the elementary school festivals and other civic-sponsored festivals, providing the labor for numerous projects, and ringing the bell for the Salvation Army kettles each December. While NJROTC is an actual class during the school day, we also have eight extracurricular teams that practice after school. Cadets can choose from academics to athletics to air rifle to a variety of drill teams. Ours is a very competitive unit with these teams earning trophies each year in eld meets all over the state. Orientation trips are another important part of NJROTC. This year, we will get to experience a taste of Marine Corps Recruit Training at Parris Island, SC, in November. While NJROTC is principally about character development, we also learn many things about military customs and traditions like Navy Balls and Dining Ins (a formal multi-course dinner preceded by etiquette lessons). All of this together adds up to making some really fun memories for our high school years while learning the value of discipline and becoming more responsible along the way. Thank you in advance for your continued support that enables us to accomplish far more than we ever could on our own.WHS NJROTC is looking forward to another year Students go back to school this week on Thursday, Aug. 15.
Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team views SportsBy ALAN ROSS Whats in a number? If it happens to be 3, then the tertiary gure popped up all over fabled Watkins Glen Sunday. For Kyle Busch, who lost the last two races at the western New York State road circuit in the closing laps, the third time was charm. For race runner-up Brad Keselowski, it was not so charming. For the third consecutive year, the 2012 Sprint Cup champion finished second, the previous two times to Marcos Ambrose. And it took three times to get the final restart right. Thrice Busch won those fraught-ridden restarts, the rst two before wrecks terminated the action barely a mile into the 2.45mile layout. The turning point came on Lap 59 of the 90-lap race, when Busch pitted under green but left pit road under yellow, thanks to Eric Almirolas shunt. Ambrose, meanwhile, was forced to pit under that caution and came out in 14th place. The Tanzanian road course expert, who had led 51 of those 59 laps, suddenly went from dominator to doomed, while Busch was only too happy to be favored by the racing gods. Worse for Ambrose, with 27 laps to go, was winding up immediately behind famed road-course warrior Juan Pablo Montoya on the restart. With no serious advancement after the whole unlucky event, Ambroses chances at a record-tying third straight win at The Glen conclusively ended with a wreck on the second of the races three closing restarts. Keselowski, whose race appeared over early when he spun out on Lap 14, was nipping at Buschs heels with just 21 laps to go. Ambrose appeared out of steam as Montoya gained positions, hopping up to ninth with 16 laps left. Buschs two-second lead with just enough fuel for a green-flag finish but not for a green-white-checkered was erased by Travis Kvapils second caution of the day. But of course, track position being everything on a road course, particularly in its late stages, all drivers stayed out. On the restart, with 10 to go, Busch got away clean, but further back, as the eld wound through the famus Esses, Matt Kenseth looked to have initiated a multiplecar wreck when he hit Kasey Kahne, who was then T-boned by teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. After the cleanup, just six laps remained. Busch again got away from Keselowski, but fate apparently wished to see a replay of the previous wreck, for at precisely the same spot on the track where Kahne got crushed, it was Ambrose who was now sent flying from a rear-end tap by Max Papis, the replacement driver for Tony Stewart. Later Ambrose revealed that suspension problems contributed to the demise of the No. 9 car. Busch meanwhile was fending off demons from his past two races at Watkins Glen, races that he couldve won but instead got beaten on the very last lead exchange both times. For the third time, NASCAR would now attempt a restart from the Kahne caution two yellows ago. Two laps left. Again Busch got the better start then held off Keselowskis nal-lap assault and this time, indeed, three times did it for the 18. With the win, Busch logged his third victory of the season theres that number again and 27th of his Cup career. It was his second triumph at The Glen. Jimmie Johnson, never a factor in the race, managed a solid eighth, and takes a 75point lead over Clint Bowyer into Michigan this Sunday. Four races remain in the race for The Chase.Alan Ross has authored 29 books on sports history.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 Page 11Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBy MARJ LAWIve shot semi-automatics for so long, it seemed like a good idea to try out some wheel guns. Wheel guns are also known as revolvers; their cylinders hold bullets. As you press the trigger, the wheel of the gun rotates to position the bullet in line with the ring pin and the barrel. I compared the Taurus Tracker .22-caliber and the Taurus .22 magnum. Then I looked at the Taurus .38, the Smith & Wesson .38, and the Smith & Wesson model 14 also known as the K .38 Masterpiece. Good people who were visiting the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce Range let me shoot their guns and I thank them very much for their generosity. The Taurus Tracker is a .22-caliber gun with a nice long 6-inch barrel and about a 9-inch site radius. The site radius is the distance between the front and back sites. The longer the site radius, the more accurate the gun can shoot. I found the grip to be short even in my small hands, but the light trigger pull is easy and the kick is negligible. It is accurate, stainless, and fun. Now, the Arminus shoots a .22, but its a .22 magnum. The Arminus is an older model gun and has a metal upper and lower. I cocked the hammer, shot and cocked and shot again. And again. On a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the most dif cult, my opinion is that the trigger pull is a 2 and the kick a 1. With its 6-inch barrel, you will hit your target. I was interested to see if I could tell the difference between the Taurus .38 model 65 and the Smith & Wesson .38 Chiefs Special Model No. 36 snubnose. Both barrels are about 2 inches long. Cocking rst, the trigger pulls are short and swift. After the easy trigger pulls, the darn things kick pretty hard. If you shoot either of these, hold on. I give the kick between a 3 and a 3.5. The grips feel very short; maybe more so because of the substantial kick. When you try to shoot without cocking the hammer, you have a hard but not too long trigger pull. I thought I couldnt use the Taurus for any length of time this way, but that is not so. At a training class held at the WCSO range, we had to shoot upon command. When your adrenaline is really moving, believe me, you can pull that difficult trigger. So, if Mr. Bad is at your door, you wont nd yourself asking for the time to cock the hammer. Youll pull that trigger in a heartbeat. The Smith & Wesson K 38 Masterpiece has a 6-inch barrel and a sight radius of about 9 inches. The one I used did not have its original grip; it had a Packmire Tactical grip which is full in length but narrow in width. I like this longer grip. While the other guns held ve bullets in their cylinders, the K-38 holds six. And, while this is still a .38, it is a much heavier gun. On that 1 5 scale, I gave the pull a 2 and the kick a 2.25, which is considerably less than the snub-nosed .38s. In my next article, Ill discuss real excitement with the Ruger Super Redhawk and its .454 Casull load, the Taurus .357 No. 605 and the Smith and Wesson Governor. And thanks again to those great people who let me use their guns for comparison. Since Ive been shooting semi-automatics for a long time now, going back to shooting a revolver is quite a change. I vastly prefer securing the web of my hand that area between the thumb and fore nger into a deep groove topped by a nice wide beavertail. It makes me feel like the grip is more secure. Also, loading 15 bullets in the semi-automatic instead of ve or six in the wheel gun is much easier for target practice. So for target practice, I still want a semi-automatic, even though some wheel guns do hold more than ve or six bullets. The .38s are ne defensive weapons. When it comes to security, Id keep a .38 with me. The chance that it will jam in any way is not likely. The semis can jam if theyre not cleaned often or well enough, if the ejectors or magazines have problems, or if youve got bad or inappropriate ammo. Dont fuss about the kick or the hard trigger pull. When Mr. Bad is standing at your door, youll have the strength of an Amazon.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com It has been a slower week for the Auxiliary, and that is not always a bad thing! We were not able to get out on the water for a patrol, but we were behind the scenes preparing none the less. Tim Ashley provided a facility Inspection for Duane and Carolyn Treadon to re-qualify The Doc B as an Auxiliary Facility. For those of you who have had one of our free vessel exams, you know the detail used for boats. When a boat is inspected as a Coast Guard Facility, the inspection is tedious. We want to ensure that we are always ready to assist those in need without putting ourselves at risk. Each year, the Coast Guard updates the requirements for the Facility Inspection to meet the newest safety standards. The Doc B has been a facility since 2006. However, this year a few adjustments had to be made to remain in compliance. In years past, a skiff hook was optional, but this year it has become required. The skiff hook attachment allows for easier line passing and securing lines for taking other boats under tow. Additionally, the tow-line has to be at least 100 feet in length. This is important to ensure that there is a safe distance between the auxiliary facility and a boat in tow. Especially in situations where there are strong currents or rough seas, a greater distance is beneficial to ensure that the boats do not collide. A line can always be shortened, but it is hard to make them longer by securing lines together, especially when time can be of the essence. Thankfully, getting a long enough line was no problem thanks to the relationship we have with the active duty. Materials officer Mike Harrison had enough in the Auxiliary inventory to supply the needed length. With the needed changes, the facility was able to pass inspection from one of our examiners, now the paperwork is forwarded up to the proper active duty so that The Doc B can serve another year as an Auxiliary Facility.

With water offshore and in our springs murky at best, even the scallop season has been slow. We encourage folks thinking about how their diving cylinders are holding up should consider the following. Scuba equipment is like cars, as long as its running and getting you from A to B then life is good. Follow a few maintenance intervals, suggested by the manufacturer, and it stays that way. Well, thats usually the case but sometimes things go wrong, parts wear out, critical components fail, then you are stuck with little more than a mechanic to help you and you always question his honesty. What is a scuba cylinder? The hazardous materials world loves to use the word container and most of the scuba community uses the term tank. The correct term is cylinder, though container is not incorrect its just not descriptive. Once a valve is applied then the container becomes able to hold great pressure. Scuba valves have come in over 300 different variations. Some with reserve systems built in, others with sonic noise makers which alerted the diver to low pressure and of course the traditional valve we see on most cylinders, the K valve. More than just a simple component for turning on and off the air supply from a cylinder a valve comes with some important features. A pressure relief device (PRD), often called a burst disc, is a standard component of valves used on scuba cylinders in the U.S. PRD assemblies are not always found on cylinders in Europe. These devices are required by law and work to protect you, your family, and your home. They consist of a copper disc that is calibrated to rupture before the cylinder and drain the contents of the cylinder in a safe, though loud, manner. Most valves have a dip tube. This is essentially a tube that works like a straw into the cylinder. If a diver should have water or any other foreign matter in his cylinder and inverts (goes head down) underwater, this material could end up in the regulator or the divers lungs. A tube that extends into the middle of your cylinder aims to eliminate this problem. The dip tube can sometimes break or come unscrewed. You can hear them rattle inside the cylinder. Draining the cylinder to replace the tube is necessary. We check to make sure they are secure when doing an annual visual but still sometimes they come undone. Its a bit like the mystery of the missing sock in every load of laundry, impossible to explain. Your cylinder valve also has a soft seating surface that can wear out but they handle abuse pretty well. That being said, over-tightening can damage them and eventually no amount of tightening can stop gas from escaping the valve. Always turn the valve nger tight to avoid damage to the high pressure seat. We are drifting into a throw-away society and unfortunately a proper valve service usually costs more than a new valve. Some parts are easy for the user to replace in the eld and others require draining the contents and some minor mechanical understanding. Either way you go, its not an item to avoid looking after. Your cylinder wouldnt work without its valve, not unless you wanted to make it into a lamp or a bell anyway. Hopefully that sheds some light onto an item of great importance to your safety which is otherwise usually goes unnoticed. When your local dive store suggests a servicing on a cylinder valve perhaps you can have an honest and fair discussion about what is really needed and what expense is justi able.Coast Guard Auxiliary

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy DARA KAMTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 9 State of cials and protesters camped out on the first floor of the Capitol trying to get their attention are making sure that the normally sluggish Tallahassee summer isnt, at least for reporters. Florida universities Chancellor Frank Brogan and state Rep. Mike Fasano are bidding bye-bye to Tallahassee, adding to the list of job openings in the capital. The man with the milliondollar smile, Brogan, announced hes headed to Pennsylvania, and hes taking almost that much cash, thanks to state taxpayers, with him. His departure comes less than a week after Education Commissioner Tony Bennett abruptly resigned, leaving the states top two schools spots vacant. And Gov. Rick Scott sent perennial pot-stirrer Fasano packing to Pasco, where hes now the county tax collector. More than a few Republicans, along with utility and insuranceindustry lobbyists, likely did private happy dances over the switch, although publicly many of those elected officials he poked heaped praise on the populist. The sit-in outside Scotts of ce rolled into its third week, with rapper Talib Kweli joining the slumber party Thursday. Tuesdays Cabinet meeting gave the demonstrators a larger, if unwilling, audience, to hear their complaints. Scott and the Cabinet didnt address any of the Dream Defenders concerns, but they did sign off on a yearlong excavation for human remains at a closed Panhandle reform school. BRO-GONE After four years as the states top university of cial, Brogan will head up the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education starting Oct. 1. Brogans five-year contract with the Florida Board of Governors would have expired in in September 2014, and his participation in the states deferred retirement system, or DROP, was set to run out in August 2015. I really felt as though I would be looking for opportunities over the nal year, Brogan told reporters during a conference call Wednesday. But I didnt know one would appear so quickly. Brogans getting a nearly $30,000 haircut with his new $327,500 salary in the Keystone State. But thats a drop in the bucket compared to what hell be taking with him. Brogan will receive a $622,109.45 lump sum payout when he officially separates from the state next month. And hell rake in more than $16,000 a month $192,000 a year in other state pension bene ts. Brogan started as a schoolteacher in Stuart and served as Martin County schools superintendent before winning election as the state education commissioner in 1994. Four years later, he ran alongside Gov. Jeb Bush as lieutenant governor, a job he held through the next election. He left the rst oor of the Capitol in 2002 to become president of Florida Atlantic University. Brogan stayed at the Boca Raton school until the BOG hired him as chancellor in 2009. Capitol insiders may best remember Brogan for his role in the press skits as Jeb Bushs court jester. On a Segway. No word yet on who Brogans successor will be, but we know it wont be Senate President Don Gaetz. The Panama City News-Herald reported that Gaetz, a former Okaloosa County schools superintendent, told a local Rotary Club he didnt want that job or the education commissioner spot. FASANO IN THE REAR VIEW Mike Fasanos up-and-down career as a state lawmaker has presumably come to an end, at least for now. First elected to the Legislature in 1994, the New Port Richey Republican spent eight years in the House followed by a decade in the Senate before returning to the House last year. Scott tapped Fasano, 55, as Pasco County property appraiser to replace Mike Olson, a Democrat who died in June. Fasano, a one-time hard-core conservative and ardent supporter of Charlie Crist, became a thorn-in-the-side to the GOP in both chambers, frequently defying leadership and openly criticizing his Republican colleagues including Scott on pocketbook issues including property insurance and utility rates. #Best #Appointment #Ever, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, tweeted after Tuesdays announcement. Last year, Fasano incurred the wrath of then-Senate President Mike Haridopolos for helping to kill a massive prison privatization proposal. Haridopolos stripped him of a powerful post as chairman of the criminal justice budget committee, but Fasano didnt back away from his anti-privatization crusade. Siding with Democrats this year, Fasano publicly chastised House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, for failing to go along with an expansion of the Medicaid program. Fasano also pointed the nger at Scott for failing to convince lawmakers to expand Medicaid and clashed with the governor over Scotts initial opposition to a prescription-drug monitoring program and the states failure to fund it. Heres what you like about Sen. Fasano, Scott said Tuesday when reporters asked him about the appointment. Hes passionate. He cares about our state and he cares about his constituents. Hes going to be very customeroriented. Fasano, who for years ended every conversation with God bless, frequently targeted insurers, especially the state-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp., for high premiums and inadequate coverage, including problems with sinkhole coverage in his district. Fasanos recent discord with GOP leaders was a shift from his early career when the party loyalist helped Gov. Jeb Bush push through the elimination of the intangibles tax. Its been almost 20 years and the Florida Legislature has changed, Fasano said Tuesday. Or Mike Fasano has changed, or maybe its a combination of the two. Fasanos at-times harsh criticism was also in con ict with the aura he generated inside his softly-lit Capitol offices, where the strains of classical music constantly played in the background. CABINET APPROVES DOZIER EXCAVATIONS Scott and the Florida Cabinet put an end to a dispute over the excavation of the remains of boys who died at a former Panhandle reform school, signing off on a year-long dig at the shuttered Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna. Attorney General Pam Bondi led the charge to allow University of South Florida researchers to dig for reportedly unaccounted-for bodies of boys who died between 1900 and 1952 at the school after Secretary of State Ken Detzner refused the researchers request for a permit, saying he lacked the authority to approve it. Were not exactly sure what happened there, but we know it wasnt good, Bondi said. We have to look at our historyWe have to go back, we know there are unmarked graves currently on that property that deserve a proper burial. Its the right thing to do. As a handful of former residents of the school looked on Tuesday, Scott and the Cabinet OKd a land-use agreement with the Department of Environmental Protection. Some local of cials had urged Scott to deny USFs request to continue the excavation, saying the publicity would be bad for local tourism. Robert Strayley, 66, was among the people who attended the Cabinet meeting. He said he was sent to the school after running away repeatedly from his Tampa home, and recalled the beatings he and other youngsters received during his 10-month stay that started in 1963. This is a historic moment for Florida because they reached into a past for Florida that was so dark that nobody wants to talk about it, he said. Lawmakers included $190,000 in this years state budget to cover the cost of the research, determine the causes of death, identify remains, locate potential family members and cover the costs for re-interment. STORY OF THE WEEK: Florida Chancellor Frank Brogan leaves his position for a similar spot in Pennsylvania after four years as head of the state university system. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Good luck Rep. Fasano! Im going to mail you a Lets get to work bumper sticker. Tweet by Rep. Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City, after learning that Rep. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, would be leaving the Florida House because Gov. Rick Scott appointed him as Pasco County tax collector.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Two guys hitting the highwayBy SLIM RANDLESSanctimonious siphons, its hot! said Dud, sitting at the philosophy counter and turning over his coffee cup for action with a single smooth move. Dud is a regular at the Mule Barn truck stops legendary world dilemma think tank. Epithet time again, Dudley? said Doc. Epithets and heat time, Doc. When that heat comes along, the only thing that can really change an attitude is a properly tuned epithet. Its mans emotional release valve, but of course you know that, being a doctor and all. Dud doctored his coffee and took a sip. Right? Oh said Doc, right of course. We took Epithets 1A and 1B in medical school, naturally. Emotional release valves and their perfection they were called. I got an A in Epithetology for the Masses in my third year, too. Youre just putting me on. Maybe. Lets look for a moment, chimed in Bert, at why epithets are so good for the soul. Hes going to wave his arms again, whispered Doc to Dud. Im afraid so Yes, said Bert, epithets, particularly those where no swearing is involved, are like a frustrated mans crossword puzzle. They bring out enough cleverness and creativity in a man to pour salve on whatever it is thats bugging the bejeesus out of him. I know I feel better with salve poured on my bejeesus, said Doc, nodding. First thing I do in the morning, after coffee, said Dud. Well, here comes Steve, Doc said, as all eyes turned to the cowboy who looked wise, in the way a caffeine-starved owl looks wise. Hell pour some salve and sense on this entire situation. Mornin Steve, said Dud. Whats going on? Bilious blasphemers, its hot today! said Steve. The groaning continued, off and on, through the toast course.

By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsShell Point artist Marge McIntyre began painting when she signed up for an acrylic painting class at Lafayette Park Arts & Crafts Center when she lived in Tallahassee, many years ago. Her instructor noticed she was watering down her paints very heavily and suggested she might like to try watercolor instead of acrylic. She took the advice, and does not stray from her chosen medium very often. From Lafayette, she migrated to classes at the Gadsden Arts Center in Quincy, Florida and met Joe McFadden, an accomplished painter. She painted with McFadden once a week for three years, developing her technique and process. She credits McFadden for helping her to grow as a painter, and taught her about color, layering and technique. A captivating portrait, a painting of a young black girl, hangs on a wall in the room she uses as a studio. She explains it is a copy of a painting she loves by well-known artist Steven Scott Young. He (McFadden) taught me to nd painters you admire, and copy them, she says with reservation. You never sign a painting if it is a copy. But I have learned a lot about technique and developing depth and richness by copying other artists work. I learned a lot when I painted that piece. McIntyre, 75 and extremely t, has a humble personality and is modest about her abilities as a painter. However, she has a live-in fan her husband Ed. As she walks around their meticulously decorated house, pointing to specific pieces, she explains the location of each landscape. Ed sits at his desk eating a bowl of cereal. He nishes a bite and turns around in his chair and adds some insight of his own. I dont mean to interrupt, but you forgot about this painting over here, he says proudly, pointing to a painting next to his desk. It is a richly colored painting of a pelican on a pole, its yellow eye looking directly at the viewer. I love this one, he says with a smile. She doesnt like it very much though. McIntyre grew up primarily in Pittsburgh, but moved to Indiana in high school and graduated there. Soon after high school graduation, she met, and eventually married Ed, who was visiting, but attending University of Florida at the time. After receiving his PhD at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the couple settled in Tallahassee where Ed taught accounting at Florida State. They lived in Tallahassee for 25 years, and raised their family, until they decided to build a house at Shell Point and relocate 18 years ago. The contemporary home they share was designed by their son, Ed Jr., who is a practicing architect in West Palm Beach. They have another son, Terry, a software engineer, who is also an accomplished woodworker. McIntyre takes her camera along on ventures with her husband, be it on land or water, as she uses only her own photographs for reference for her paintings. Since we moved to Shell Point, I have painted almost all landscapes of Wakulla County. The landscape is my inspiration. She works on one painting at a time, slowly layering the colors to develop the depth, noticeable in her work. At first I was using watercolor paints like you would use oils, she explains. I was using too much paint and not enough water. One of my instructors showed me how to use less paint and more water and thats when I started to understand how watercolors work. McIntyre is not totally in the closet with her work. Her paintings have been featured in exhibits in Tallahassee and throughout the Northeast. She currently has two paintings at the Tallahassee Watercolor Societys 2013 exhibit at the Tallahassee City Hall. I had two paintings accepted, she says humbly with a smile, Wakulla Re ections and Sawgrass Island. Sawgrass Island is a painting of Cedar Island at Shell Point before Hurricane Dennis caused it damage. She walks into a spare room in their home and points out a painting titled Palm Burst, a very detailed close-up painting of palm fronds and berries. This is one of my best paintings, I think, she says timidly. This tree is right outside my studio window, and in the springtime when I open the windows I can hear the wind blowing through the fronds. Its just beautiful, so I had to paint it. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 Page 15A & This submission of Red Clay Footprints reminds the reader of the reason for lighthouses for those who may be in peril on the sea. It is very unfortunate that those beacons of hope and comfort are no longer manned by persons who are skilled and trained to render aid. Keepers of the U.S. Lighthouse Service, and later, Of cers in Charge of the U.S. Coast Guard, were on duty 24 hours a day, manning radio and telephone communications as well as regularly climbing the steps into the towers and watching the waters in their proximity for boats in distress. They also insured that the lights in the tower were exhibited at sunset and extinguished at sunrise. Failure to do so was grounds for immediate termination of employment of the Keeper. Today, there are no manned lighthouses situated on Apalachee Bay, and few, if any, anywhere in the United States. The last Coast Guardsman locked the doors of the St. Marks Lighthouse in 1960. I cannot help but believe there have been lives needlessly lost in the 53 years since the lighthouse went automatic. This brings me to another point of interest. Our beautiful St. Marks Lighthouse is the iconic symbol for Wakulla County. The present tower was completed in 1842 before Florida became a state. Simply stated, it is a treasure for those of us who call Wakulla County home, or who travel there from elsewhere to enjoy its natural beauty. On a recent visit, I saw this notice at the Visitor Center: SAVE THE ST. MARKS LIGHTHOUSE The St. Marks Lighthouse has been a navigational beacon for over a century and a half, guiding recreational, military, and merchant vessels from around the world to the mouth of the St. Marks River. The U.S. Coast Guard has the paperwork to complete the transfer of the St. Marks Lighthouse to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. It cant happen soon enough because, even though it is a National Historic Site, the Lighthouse is undergoing serious deterioration. It will take several million dollars to restore and maintain this wonderful local icon and treasure. If you are interested and willing to be a part of the team that supports this project, let us know ... by email(ing) Ranger Robin Will at robin_will@ fws.gov. The St. Marks Refuge Association Inc., our nonprofit citizens support group, would greatly appreciate any donations and/or investments of time and expertise you are willing to make! To learn more about the Association, please visit www. stmarksrefuge.org. Thank you! Robin Will, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. For those of you who are concerned about the situation at the St. Marks Lighthouse, I encourage you to take the scenic drive onto the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and visit the lighthouse. I think you all will be appalled at the slow but steady deterioration of the lighthouse. You will notice the wooden shutters are rotting away, allowing the elements, rain, and wind, to get into the interior of the structure. For lack of care and painting, the tower is taking on a sickening greenish tint and heavy mildew may be easily observed around the top of the tower. A few months ago, I entered the lighthouse and noted the deterioration inside, which included the living room ceiling beginning to fall in and the rot taking hold in the windows of the tower due to the rotting of the shutters. The costs to restore the lighthouse are already very high and with each day, with increasing decay, are multiplying. I cannot help recalling that my grandfather, who was Keeper from 1918 to 1949, received recognition and an award from the U.S. Lighthouse Service for having the best kept station in his district, which included all lighthouses situated from St. Marks to Brownsville, Texas. No doubt he would be so sad to see it in its present condition. In closing, I want to make sure you all know that Robin Will and the other dedicated employees and volunteers at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge are not to blame for the present situation. They have worked tirelessly and without the praise they so deserve to preserve and display to the public, all aspects of the Refuge. Preservation of the lighthouse has been a top priority of theirs for many years, and they have successfully completed all the dif cult bureaucratic hurdles.

Aug 15 Aug 22 Wed like to thank all who came out to our red carpet premiere of our Summer Cinemaniacs production of their short lm, A Night on the Nautilus. The room was packed and everyone who came seemed to enjoy the hard work of this Young Adult group. Thank you for your support of WCPL and for the hard work of these great kids. They were touched by the huge crowd and it really meant a lot to them. SUMMER PROGRAM WRAP-UP After the event mentioned above, the 2013 Summer Program at WCPL will come to an end.We had nearly 200 children sign up and attend some portion of our program this summer. We had presenters from the Tallahassee Museum of Natural History and archeologists from the State come down and hold fun but informative programs for the kids. ESG, the Countys Public Works Department, came down on two days with diggers, and other big machines for the children to see and learn about. We had 8 fantastic performers from around the State of Florida as well as into Georgia come and entertain the families of Wakulla County with shows ranging from Sherlock Holmes, to magic, to songs and stories, along with much more. In our enrichment programs children ranging from infants to teens heard great stories, made some awesome crafts, worked on their own lm, and maybe (shockingly) learned a thing or two this summer while having all this fun. As always, our entire Summer Program is free to all thanks to the support of the Friends of the Library. Planning for our Summer Program actually begins in January and all of this would not be possible without the hard work of two very special people, Leilania Nichols and Molly Clore, WCPLs 2 Childrens Coordinators. Both of these ladies come up with great ideas for and work very hard for, the children who come into the library. They both think out of the box which you can see in the innovative programs they come up with and the fun they have running our Summer Program. If youve been lucky enough to attend even part of all the fun this summer, please take some time and thank Leilania & Molly for all of their hard work. Theyre already thinking about new ideas for next summer as well as some events during the fall and winter so keep an eye on us! There will be no Book Bunch or Book Babies for the next 2 weeks. Those programs will return on Tuesday Aug. 27 and Wednesday Aug. 28. Here are some upcoming meetings at the library: Wednesday Aug. 14 Knitters 4 p.m. in the Conference Room. Thursday Aug. 15 Concerned Citizens of Wakulla will meet at 7 p.m. in the Main Meeting Room. Friday Aug. 16 Quilting Guild will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Main Meeting Room.

On July 31, 2000, this honorable Court granted Ms. Cliftons petition for injunctive relief. 2. Since that time there has been a circumstantial change in circumstances in that Ms. Clifton no longer lives in the State, in fact, it has been discovered through local investigations, so far that she is currently on the run from the law. 3. There has never been any violation in the 13 years this injunction has been in place. There is obviously no danger to her. The scenario underlying the injunction no longer exists so that continuation of the injunction would serve no valid purpose. 4. Mr. Crosby request this relief because of the stigma attached to his record. He is greatly harmed by the stigma of having a DVI on his record. Whenever he applies for work the injunction serves as highly prejudicial in his pursuit of a job. WHEREFORE, Mr. Crosby seeks relief consistent with this Motion. Respectfully submitted, /s/STEVEN P.

Page 22A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 15, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comContemporary life has a frenetic pace. Deeds, tasks, and jobs all pile in at a feverish and accelerating frequency. Even the laconic late summer days no longer allow for the reduction of this manic rate of demands. The rapidity of the requirements insures the chronic appearance of stressed distraction. The obligations generate a fluttering hum throughout the days, ceaselessly moving from one opportunity to the next. Or so it would seem for the hummingbirds taking every advantage of late summers blooms. Wakulla Countys hummingbirds are member of the Trochilide family. Their name is derived from the humming sound created by their beating wings, which sometimes sounds like ying insects with beats up to 80 times per second. Hummingbirds live only in North and South America. Sixteen species are found in the United States of the 338 species known in the Western Hemisphere. Three occur in Florida and can be seen in Wakulla County. The ruby-throated hummingbird is the most commonly seen hummingbird in the state. This feathered jewel is about three inches long and weighs as little as a penny coin. The name describes the most brilliant part of the mature males plumage. The throat feathers contain air bubbles which give off an iridescent red tone in full sunlight. Their backs are metallic green and they have two sets of tail feathers. The two green ones in the center cover eight outer black ones when theyre folded. In females and juveniles, the black feathers have white tips. The males lose the white tips as they mature Black-chinned and Rufous hummingbirds are seen during the winter in-route to their cool season latitudes. The Rufous has the longest migration route of all U.S. hummingbirds from Canada to Mexico. Nesting in Florida begins in mid-spring, usually April. The nest is a walnut-size structure of plant down, adorned with lichens, moss, and bound with spider webs or ne plant bers. Nests frequently are built over water. The female lays two eggs less than one-half inch long. After 20 days of incubation and four weeks of growing, fledgling hummingbirds leave the nest. For their size, hummingbirds have the largest appetites in the bird world. They feed every 10 or 15 minutes from dawn until dusk. During this period, they eat more than half their weight in food and eight times their weight in water. Hummingbirds must consume large amounts of high-energy food to acquire enough strength to support their high-speed aerobatic activities. Adult hummingbirds feed primarily on nectar with the young fed insects by their parents while still in the nest. Nectar is their energyrich food of choice which is absorbed rapidly. One adult hummingbird may need nectar from hundreds of blossoms daily just to maintain its body weight. Hummingbirds are well adapted to a liquid diet. Long needlelike bills and specially adapted tongues allow them to reach nectar in deep, tubular owers. The last half-inch of the long tongue is divided into equal halves, each grooved on the outside edge to form two tubelike structures. Nectar is drawn into the tongue much the same way liquid travels up a straw. Hummingbirds can lick at a rate of 13 times per second, and their stomach is capable of holding about .2 ounces of nectar. Hummingbird fossils have been identified from Pleistocene Epoch 2.5 million years ago. Some ornithologists believe they may be related to Swifts.
