Commissioner Ralph Thomas thanked County Administrator David Edwards and Chief Deputy Clerk Greg James for their hard work saying that he was comfortable with budget, with the exception of the proposed $150,000 cut to the Sheriffs budget. We have a brand new sheriff, he said. Hes taken responsibility for the budget and the people have elected him to do that. I think we should give him a chance to do his job. Commissioner Thomas said that the sheriffs of ce did contribute money from their rainy day fund to help the county and that there is still the obligation to pay that back. He proposed that the board vote to grant the sheriffs fund the $150,000 as a credit to that amount owed. That way, said Thomas, hell have that $150,000 that hes asking for and were settling a portion of that debt. Conversation between the commissioners and county staff revealed that the countys debt with the sheriffs of ce is currently at about $300,000 an amount that would virtually be paid off after the sheriffs of ce roof x that the county was planning on doing in the next year, according to Edwards. However, Thomas proposal would mean that instead of the county paying back the sheriffs department based on jail bed revenue percentages, the county would be pulling money from its reserves and putting it into the sheriffs fund at the risk of losing that investment if jail bed revenues dont improve in the next year. In a separate interview with James and Edwards, it was revealed that, if the number of ICE inmates, which has been low for the past two years does not pick up, the sheriffs fund is looking at a de cit of about $1 million by the 2018-19 year if cuts that Edwards said are critical are not made. Chairman Randy Merritt said that he trusted the judgment of Edwards and James and that he was supporting what had been proposed for the budget originally. But Commissioner Richard Harden said that he would be in favor of propping up or granting the sheriffs of ce a grace period of one year only, meaning hed be in favor of the cuts being made in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 years rather than the upcoming. Understand this, said Edwards. The sheriffs fund balance will have a projected $434,000 in reserves if they reach their $2.5 million goal in jail bed revenue for this year. That means that at the end of next year, we will have $149,000 in that fund thats all. Which means, said Edwards, that in the next year, even with a $150,000 cut the sheriffs fund will go in the hole. But its up to you, he told the board. Commissioner Howard Kessler expressed disappointment that the conversation had gotten that far. He commended staff for their transparency and efforts when it came to such an elaborate budget process. But, he said, I think were losing track of what our administrator has put out as the reality of the budget situation that we continue to nd ourselves in. He said that he believed the county should be actively trying to avoid insolvency, saying that they were driving the sheriff into bankruptcy by taking the proposed action referring to it as kicking the can down the road. The further you kick this can down the road, said Kessler, the harder its going to be to get out of this hole. Thomas acknowledged the importance of the fund balance and the situation its in, pegging prior boards who didnt follow their fund balance policy as the reason why it doesnt have the roughly $5 million that it currently should.

David Paul Funderburke, 45, was charged with burglary, possession of burglary tools, grand theft and driving while license is suspended or revoked. Deputy Vicki Mitchell and Lt.

Deputy Anthony Paul also investigated.PHOTO BY BILL ROLLINS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net Wakulla has been eagerly awaiting any sign of movement from the federal government in relation to the distribution of RESTORE Act funds. But on Thursday Sept. 5, that sign may have been obtained as the county received a draft of the Department of Treasurys rules as they pertain to the distribution of RESTORE Act funds to the affected counties. According to Wakullas Director of Governmental Affairs, Sheree Keeler, once the settlement amount is determined, the rules are going to govern how the money gets form the Treasury to the counties. One of the most important things to note, Keeler said, is that the BP settlement is not nished yet. According to online reports, under the Clean Water Act trial, there are three parts. The first, which took place in February of this year, was to determine the liability of BP and others involved. The second phase of the trial is scheduled for later this month and will focus on the ow rate of the oil, while the third, scheduled in 2014, will consider damages. Keeler said that after reviewing the rules, she determined that the county will have to develop a plan on how they are going to spend the money. The plan will have to be in accordance to the RESTORE Act and the newly received rules.Turn to Page 3A e Wakulla War Eagles pulled out a last-minute win over the visiting Navarre Raiders on Friday night at J.D.

From Page 1A According to Keeler, the county would be meeting in the next week to review the rules line by line to determine what they mean for Wakulla. Right now, the draft is available for public review and feedback for a period of 60 days, after which the county will have to submit a formulated response containing the communitys feedback as a whole, along with any questions the county has to the U.S. Treasury. The way the rules are written, Keeler said, it sets it up like a federal grant program. Which means that we would have to enter into an agreement as far as our plan for spending funds and certifying that those expenditures are in compliance with the RESTORE Act. In addition, she said, there will be allowable and nonallowable expenditures, expense reporting and goal-oriented projects the outcomes of which will have to be reported on. Theres always the possibility that the federal government could get so much feedback that they tweak the rules, Keeler said. However, if the rules stand as they are today, the county will not just receive one big check. Rather, allocations will be awarded after rst going through an application process much like what must be done in order to receive a grant. As far as moving forward, Keeler said, were going to have to bring everyone back together and discuss what direction to go in now. Meaning, what can we use that weve already done and what is new that we need to make happen. Once the government receives all feedback which can come from anyone across the country though there are ve gulf states that will be receiving funding after the allotted 60 days, Keeler said, it will take that, assimilate it and then formulate where to go from there as far as a nal draft of rules is concerned. It could be, she said, that they may put the nal draft out for another 60 day comment period. In other words, a timeline for expectation of nal rules is unclear. But were excited about this, Keeler said. Its de nitely a step in the right direction. The RESTORE Act which, in long form, stands for the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act, was passed in July of 2012 by President Obama and designates that 80 percent of all Clean Water Act penalties be paid by those responsible for the 2010 gulf oil disaster to those directly affected by the spill. That 80 percent allocation will be broken up into ve different pots of money, each pot designated for speci c purposes. Pot number one, which will contain 35 percent of RESTORE Act funds, will be divided equally between the ve states affected by the oil spill: Ala., Fla., La., Miss., and Texas. Fla.s seven percent share will be divided two ways. Counties that are classi ed as non-disproportionately affected will divvy up a 25 percent share, while the eight that are labeled as disproportionately affected will divvy up 75 percent of the states share. As a county labeled as one of the eight (the others being Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf and Franklin), Wakulla will receive 4.943 percent of the 75 percent. Although the allocation may seem small, depending on the outcome of the settlement trial, expectations are that Wakullas portion could reach tens of millions of dollars. A breakdown of settlement dollar possibilities compared to Wakullas distribution shows that if the settlement is as low as $1 billion, Wakulla will receive just over $2 million. A settlement of $10 billion puts Wakullas share at more than $20 million and a settlement of $20 billion means the county will receive $41.5 million. Under the RESTORE Act, the money that Wakulla receives can be used for the following types of projects: Restoration and protection of natural resources, ecosystems, sheries, marine and wildlife habitats, beaches, and coastal wetlands of the Gulf Coast region. Mitigation of damage to sh, wildlife, and natural resources Implementation of a federally approved marine, coastal or comprehensive conservation management plan, including sheries monitoring Workforce development and job creation Improvements to state parks in coastal areas affected by Deepwater Horizon spill Infrastructure projects bene ting economy or ecological resources, including ports Coastal ood protection and related infrastructure Planning assistance Promotion of tourism, including recreational shing Promotion of consumption of seafood harvested from the Gulf Coast region www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. From Page 1A But, he said, I think we need to give the sheriff a chance to do what he was elected by the people of this county to do. Before the final vote Edwards reiterated that, if the jail bed revenue goes away, youve just taken that $150,000 and ushed it down the toilet, he said. You never chase a revenue, but thats what yall are trying to do here. Kessler implored fellow board members to reconsider. This year is such a critical year, he said. When you put that $150,000 in this direction, that means other things arent going to get funded. He questioned how long it had been since county employees had gotten raises and how long has it been since needed things have not been acquired? Before the board put the item to vote, Merritt said that hed much rather see us follow David, but Im not going to vote against the budget. The item, with Thomas proposed amendment to grant the sheriffs budget a one-year grace period, passed 4-1 with Kessler casting the vote against. The budget will come back before the board on Sept. 16 complete with the recent amendment for the second and final public hearing before it becomes of cial.Sheri s budget gets reprieve County receives draft of RESTORE Act rules SEPT. 13, 2013The City of St. Marks has tentatively adopted a budget for scal year 2013-2014.

Wakulla County regulates construction and development in the oodplain to ensure that buildings will be protected from ood damage. All developments in the oodplain, not just construction of buildings, need permits. Filling and similar work are prohibited in certain areas, so check with the Planning and Community Development Department before you begin a project to build, ll or otherwise. Should unauthorized development in the oodplain be witnessed by a citizen, they can report it to the Countys Code Enforcement Ofce at (850) 745-7760. It is also important to know that houses in the oodplain that are substantially damaged by events such as re or ood must be repaired to new construction standards. This includes elevating the structure to or above the base ood elevation when it is repaired. Damage is considered to be substantial when the cost of reconstruction equals or exceeds 50% of the buildings market value. When damage of this type occurs to a structure and repairs are necessary, visit the Planning and Community Development Department for a Development Permit Application to begin your permitting process. A recorded warranty deed and site plan, showing the improvements/repairs to the property, will be required to complete this Application. Once obtained from Planning and Zoning, the Development Permit Application should be submitted to the Building Division for permitting. Depending upon the types of work performed additional materials will be requested from the Building Division and/or other Departments to complete the permitting of repairs to the structure. Applicable fees are due for Development Permit Applications and Building Division permits, unless otherwise waived by the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners for widespread storm damage. An important protection measure in regards to ooding is ood insurance. Homeowners insurance policies do not cover damage from oods, so obtaining a ood insurance policy can help you should you experience a ood. Since Wakulla County and the City of St. Marks participate in the National Flood Insurance Program, you can purchase a separate ood insurance policy in these areas. This insurance is backed by the Federal government and is available to properties that have been previously ooded. Dont wait for the next ood to buy insurance protection. In most cases, there is a 30 day waiting period before National Flood Insurance Program coverage takes effect. Also, consider obtaining contents coverage if it is not already included in your current insurance policy. Contact your insurance agent for more information on rates and coverage. For further information on these topics contact the Planning and Community Development Department at (850) 926-3695. SEPT. 12, 2013 BUDGET SUMMARY City of St. Marks Fiscal Year 2013-2014

Four county commissioners should not be allowed to decide our future. Its good that theres a dialogue going, in the end it will be positive. In the meantime, I offer this section of our book to given citizens more information on the value of our coastal marshes and interior wetlands and why we should preserve them. Following is a partial chapter from our book, Shrimp the Endless Quest for Pink Gold by Jack and Anne Rudloe, published FT Press in 2010. The big aw in managing the wetlands to produce shrimp and other seafood is that managers cannot protect the wetlands from real estate developers or from pollution. Its easy to beat up on the small commercial shermen, but land use is controlled by wealthy, powerful politicians and real estate developers, some of whom are political appointees sitting on the sheries councils. Its been shown again and again that when land speculators move in, wetlands and shrimp diminish and sheries collapse. When developers seal off the land from the sea with seawalls as one study in Texas has shown, they rob the shrimp and other marine life of organic materials and diatoms that occur in the marsh-mangrove interface. Then shrimp landings drop catastrophically. Two and a half times as many brown shrimp and fourteen times more white shrimp were found along a natural shoreline than along a bulkheaded shoreline in one study. Another scientist at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stated that the loss of organic material along bulkheads in Florida, Louisiana and Texas dropped shrimp down to one eight of their normal population. Dams, causeways, impoundments and storm water drains all cut down on shrimp population, according to their studies. But all they did was study it. Politics and money trump science, and they couldnt stop it. The unrelenting beat of dredge, drain and reclaim still goes on to create the real estate dream, a bulkheaded sea wall and a manicured grass lawn. People want to improve their property and make it look clean and neat, not wild so they can boost their real estate values. Florida has led the nation in obliterating its wetlands. One study by the state, using global satellite positioning, showed that 86 percent of the mangroves from the Indian River to St. Lucie Inlet are gone. Developers in Tampa Bay on the Gulf Coast gobbled up 81 percent of their marshes and mangroves and Jacksonville chewed up over twelve miles of riverside marshes of the States largest estuary to make way for shipping ports, housing and commerce. Its estimated that 78 percent of Floridas residents now live in coastal areas and natural wetlands and sh are con ned to postage stamp sized parcels. Seawalls and buildings have replaced mangrove swamps depriving shrimp and other marine forms of food and shelter giving them no place to grow. Even the people who make their living from the sea often dont get it. Pompano sherman on the Florida east coast took jobs destroying the marshes of Lake Worth, working for the developers when shing was poor. After the marshes and mangroves literally went down the tube (dredge pipelines) the ounder, mackerel, whiting, crabs and shrimp vanished and the shing industry collapsed. This continues to happens and will go on until the wetlands are truly protected. Jack Rudloe Panacea Editor, The News: Two letters to the editor in last weeks issue, one by Commissioner Ralph Thomas, suggested that the truth about the wetlands buffer issue is elusive and that supporting the proposed referendum by petition would be illadvised or even detrimental to our community. Neither letter offered any real facts to support their claim. Commissioner Thomas did cite one example of development that would fit the construction or alteration criteria needed to invoke state law in rejecting a proposed home construction project with no buffer at all. Unfortunately, he never did say what kinds of projects would be approved under the law in the absence of the local ordinance. Neither letter did anything to clarify the issue but they did sound scary enough to move the average citizen to reconsider their most reasonable opinions. So much empty drama just to convince us that we the people dont need to exercise our right to vote on this issue, or to even suggest the possibility by signing a rightfully circulated petition. Who are these poor, encumbered families who are so harmed by the wetlands buffer ordinance that they require the full weight of four elected officials to forward their cause? How is the law keeping them from exercising their civil rights? How, exactly, does a development buffer harm anyone? Apparently, this disenfranchised segment of our coastal communities, the stewards of our shores and our delicate ecosystem, must be suffering greatly through their inability to encroach on our wetlands but how? Let them come forward and tell us about their speci c development needs. I want to hear about the projects that they cant complete because of the buffer ordinance and the hardship imposed upon them by the law. In other words, I want to know the facts. Ive lived and loved in this county for 22 years but Im originally from South Florida, so Ive seen the sad results of poorly regulated development. It starts with a favor that becomes a precedent, then its just the way things are done. Before long the taxpayers are paying through the nose to clean up somebody elses mess. You want scary? Well, there it is. So, if were gonna forfeit the protective and enriching qualities of our wetlands to serve the personal needs of a small segment of our community, Id rather hear the details from a needy, entitled neighbor than from a bureaucrat with a hidden agenda. Let them come out from the shadows cast by the development-minded lawmakers who are championing their cause and factually reassure us that pursuit of their personal property rights wont interfere with the rights that are guaranteed to us all. Then, lets vote on it. John Palumbo Crawfordville In the front page story Wetlands petition draft turned in that appeared in last weeks edition of The Wakulla News, it was reported that 8,501 voters were recorded at the polls. However, it should say that there were 18, 501 active voters in the previous election. We regret the error.CorrectionEditor, The News: The American promise is the right to vote. It is important that Wakulla County citizens have the right to vote on the way they want to see their community grow. There is good growth, and there is very bad growth. Previous county commissioners put into place a wetlands ordinance that protected our ground water from pollution, that minimized ooding, that was meant to protect our drinking water, that helped prevent shoreline erosion and that attempted to protect our sheries. Now, county commissioners want to change our wetlands ordinance so that new buildings can be built right up to the water without buffers, and build in sensitive places that they could not have built in before. Ask yourself why do these commissioners want to do this? This does impact you, no matter where you live in this county. A petition drive has started to allow you, the voter, the right to vote on how you want to see Wakulla grow. Think on it. Read about how important wetlands are, and learn what happens to communities that do not take care of their water resources. Look at Tampa and South Florida, they are already running out of water. There is a meeting open to those who want to help protect Wakulla County, this Thursday, Sept 12, at 7 p.m. at the Wakulla Public Library. I encourage you to attend, if you want to preserve Wakulla County for future generations. Remember, the worst thing that we can do is to do nothing at all. Sue Damon Shell Point Editor, The News: I know that Wakulla County is involved in a debate about our wetlands. Wetlands are an important issue but I have problems with having the new regulations voted in by the wetlands referendum. There could be problems that many of us would not like. First of all from what I understand if a change to the referendum needs to be accomplished we must have 100 percent of our county commissioners to agree to the change. If 100 percent of the county commissioners do not agree with the proposed change, future changes have to be done via another referendum. If we have a major issue that becomes one of those unexpected consequences from passing regulations via a referendum, what would we do if that issue is a major problem and we cannot get 100 percent support from our county commissioners? Another concern of mine is that we would have at least two government agencies involved with one issue. I am a rm believer of less government and it seems when more than one government agency is involved with an issue there is a lot discord between the agencies that are involved. I have been advised that anyone who signs a petition has the possibility of their signature to become public knowledge through the Supervisor of Elections Of ce. Many people may not really like their name being at the publics disposal even when an issue is a major concern to them. It seems that the State of Florida has a fascination with referendums. Does anyone remember last years amendments to the ballot. Issues that are important to our state or county deserve attention but I rmly believe that we elect our politicians to make those decisions not us having referendums or amendments added to the ballot. Many of last years Amendments were the result of our politicians taking the easy way out and passing their responsibility to the people that voted them into of ce. I wholeheartedly believe if changes need to be made on the issue of wetlands, it should be done in Tallahassee, not in each and every county that wants to get involved with those issues. Sincerely, Garland W. Burdette Crawfordville Editor, The News: Its that time again. Friends Furr Life. The Leon County Humane Society, will be collecting dog and cat foods and supplies to be distributed to all of the outlying areas which includes Wakulla County Senior Citizens again this year. It is their sixth annual distribution and all in the past have been a great success. This year there is a greater need for cat food. In Crawfordville, there are three donation drop sites, Ace Hardware, The Pet Stop, and Crawfordville Animal Hospital. Ashley Feed on Highway 61 is another donation drop spot. Thank you all in advance of this great event. Kathryn Wilsonkatsanctuary2012@gmail.comMore debate on the wetlands ordinanceMeeting set on petition drive Who is harmed by wetlands bu er? e importance of wetlands Concerns about wetlands referendum Lose more than gain by signing petition Friends Furr Life drive underwayREADERS WRITE:Editor, The News: One of the letters in last weeks Wakulla News caused me to stop and think. It was a letter about signing a petition that is being circulated regarding Wakulla wetlands. I know that sooner or later someone will ask me to sign the petition but I do not see how it will help our county. As I understand it, over the past few years the wetlands complaint have been, at various times, under both the county ordinance and the state statute. During this time there have been no major complaints that I can remember regarding wetlands violations. In fact, the wetlands violation most often cited is a failed housing development in Panacea that goes back a dozen years. The shing has been neither better nor worse as a result of which authority has been permitting the wetlands, the tourism seems to have been about the same (were not keeping two hotels full), our restaurants are not being lled by visitors but by locals, and those buildings that are closed across the county are closed because of the economy (except in Panacea where a lot of it goes back to another referendum, the net ban). So when I think of signing a petition for a vote 14 months from now on an ordinance that cannot be changed between now and then, I believe that would be losing more than they would be gaining by signing a petition.

Compiled by Lynda KinseyBy JO ANN PALMERof KWCB At 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, hundreds of volunteers from Wakulla, Leon, Jefferson and Franklin counties will converge on the beaches, marshes, roads and rivers of Wakulla County to clean up trash and debris. These volunteers will be participating in the 28th International Coastal Cleanup hosted locally by Keep Wakulla County Beautiful (KWCB). Volunteers are here for this annual event because of their common interest in the environment and a desire to help our community. They will be counted as part of the 500,000 other volunteers worldwide who will collectively gather and properly dispose of more than 10 million pounds of trash, making a global difference in one day. KWCB works all year long to remove trash and debris from our roadways and waterways. We identify the sources of the debris while educating our citizens to change the behaviors that allow it to end up on our roadways and reach the ocean in the rst place. Unfortunately, trash still arrives. Volunteers spend a morning picking up everything from cigarette butts and food wrappers to lost shing nets and major appliances. Trash travels to the ocean by way of storm drains and waterways and endangers wildlife, beachgoers and our delicate environment. The ve major sites for the 2013 cleanup will be St. Marks Refuge, Shell Point, Mashes Sands, St. Marks River Park and Bottoms Road in Panacea. Volunteers can either proceed directly to the site of their choice or come directly to Woolley Park in Panacea. At any of the sites, you will sign in and be directed to an area to clean. You can sign up in Panacea and find out more information on all the sites. You do not have to be familiar with the sites to participate. Volunteers can find out more information and sign up early by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The rst 500 participants will also receive a complimentary T-shirt. Even though this is hard, hot work, we know it is so important and we appreciate everyone coming out to support this great effort. We challenge you to get your group together, get registered and come prepared on Sept. 21. You should wear comfortable shoes such as tennis shoes, a hat, gloves, sunscreen and insect repellent. Bags will be provided. Registration is available for a group or individual by sending an email to: helpkwcb@ gmail.com. If you have any questions, call the of ce of KWCB at (850) 745-7111.

SNYDERI guess I am one of those old-fashioned guys still wearing a suit. I have been wearing a suit and tie for as long as I can remember, which really isnt saying a great deal. Not much I can remember these days, which is one of the advantages of growing older. When the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage grills me about some incident that did or did not happen, I can always rely on the good old faithful, I just cant remember! Well, she stammers as she stares at me, but dont let it happen again. My problem is I cannot remember what I am supposed to remember so how can I remember not to let it happen again? (Sigh.) So, my memory is not quite up to par in many areas. One area has to do with my suits. There is only one thing I do not like about my suits. I have several suits that I wear on a rotating basis. Naturally, they all look alike so nobody knows I am rotating my suits. The secret to rotating suits is to have an assortment of ties, but make sure those ties do not look alike. I have enough ties that I do not have to wear one for up to three months. I have a bright pink tie I wear twice a year and every time I wear it, several people ask me if I got a new necktie. I always smile and nod in the af rmative. Why spoil a good moment? The negative side of wearing suits is occasionally you have to replace them. There are all sorts of reasons why a suit needs to be replaced. One is that you grow out of it or it grows out of you. Either way the suit has to be replaced. Another reason is that something happened to the suit and there is some tear necessitating the whole suit being replaced. The key here is not to let my wife know that there is a small tear in my suit. The moment she discovers the slightest tear in one of my suits she begins her plan of having that suit replaced. For me, a tear is simply a tear. If it is in the rear of my suit jacket, I do not see it so it is no concern to me. If other people are inconvenienced by a small tear in the back of my suit coat, let them replace the suit. I can deal with all kinds of tear oddities about my suit. Not so in the case of my wife. Even a slightly worn spot on my suit coat, begins her thinking of replacing it. Believe me; I try to hide it as much as possible to keep it from the ever-piercing eyes of my wife who sees through everything, even things that are not there. Just recently, despite my attempts to conceal the issue, my wife spotted a small tear on my suit coat. It happened to be my favorite suit coat. I can recall exactly when and how the split occurred. I kept that information away from my wife as long as I possibly could now I had to pay the piper. Early Monday morning we were off to the mens store to purchase another suit. The whole way there, I was thinking of all the other things I could be doing at this time. Being the gracious and humble husband I am, I yielded to the prompting of my wife and we were off to the mens store. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by a young man to whom my wife said, Were here to buy a suit. I gured I better step in before the conversation got out of control. Were looking for a grey suit. I understand, said the young man as he thoughtfully pulled at his chin looking down the long row of suits. And what color grey are you looking for? Say what, I said. What color grey are you looking for? He repeated. As far as I was concerned, grey was grey and that was the color I was looking for. Nonetheless, I was in for a surprise. We have a variety of grey suits. There is a charcoal grey. Light grey. Dark grey. He went on and on about the variety of grey colors in his shop. If I heard correctly, according to him, there were at least 50 shades of grey. Believe me, there was not anything romantic about that! All I wanted was a grey suit. To me, grey is grey is grey. I do not want my suit to be a fashion statement. In fact, I want my suit to be silent and say nothing at all. We walked out of the mens store with a new suit and my wife had a wonderful smile on her face. I on the other hand, had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach realizing just how much this grey suit cost me. I have a new appreciation for what the apostle Paul said. That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man (Ephesians 3:16 KJV). It is not the outside that really matters, but the inside of a man. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at (866) 552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@ att.net. By ETHEL SKIPPERWhile following God, all of us face tests of faith. Although these trials may vary in form, one thing is certain God is faithful. Time and again. In the Word of God, we learn of Gods faithfulness so many times. Abrahams test of faith is no exception. When Abraham was 100 years old, Sarah gave birth to Isaac, who ful lled Gods promise that he would have an heir. Sometime later when the boy had gotten older, God tested Abrahams faith by commanding him to sacrifice Isaac his son. Only moments before Abraham was about to kill Isaac, an angel called to Abraham and announced he had passed Gods test he had demonstrated his fear of the Lord and willingness to do anything the Lord required. Abraham is released from the commandment to kill Isaac, and God provides a substitute for the sacrifice a ram caught in the thicket by its horns, which Abraham offered to the Lord. Afterwards, an angel delivers another message in which God vows to bless Abraham and multiply his descendents, who will in return bless the world. Thanks to everyone for your concern and prayers while I was in the hospital. I am blessed. It was a test of my faith in God knowing He would do what He promised. As He continues to heal my body, pray with us. Happy birthday to Mrs. Mary J. Kelly, Eddie Branner, Solomon Allen, Mother Mary Bell, Crystal Green, and Helly Richardson. Our prayer this week goes out to all the sick and shut-ins, those in hospitals, nursing homes, prison, the homeless, all in need of prayer everywhere. Let us bless those we come in contact with and love one another.We all face tests of faith BUCKHORN NEWS

She was born in Philadelphia on June 9, 1939 but found her way to Miami and eventually to the North Florida area. She was a loving, resourceful, funny, adventuresome spirit. She will be sorely missed. Marilyn Sandy Campbell Buck Gerrell By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGWhile I was in Tallahassee Memorial Hospital recently for surgery, one of my nurses who knew I was a pastor said, God bless you to me as she nished her shift and prepared to leave. I asked her how its said in her native language, knowing she was from Tanzania, in East Africa. She shared that in Swahili, it was Mungu akubariki May God bless you. She wrote it for me on the message board in my room, and with curious interest, each of my nurses and other medical staff learned it while I was there recuperating. I began to think about this phrase which is spoken, in some form or another, around the world. When I was in regional ministry, I traveled throughout Florida to over 100 Disciples congregations, composed of various cultures and races, with various languages. In Spanish, its Dios te bendiga. Another common Hispanic phrase is, Vaya con Dios meaning Go with God. In French, God bless you is Dieu vous benit. In Haitian-creole, its Bondye beni ou. The one thing that each person of another language spoke to me in English as they greeted me while visiting their congregation, even if they knew no other English, was God bless you accompanied by a hearty hug or handshake. When traveling in other parts of the world, on the other side of the globe, I have also witnessed this common desire to bless one another with Gods love. I realize that being in ministry, people will speak of things that relate to who I am and what I do. But I also believe that many people around the world still yearn for a relationship, a blessing, a presence of the Almighty and desire that for others. People desire Gods blessing, which is not some magical cure-all or favoritism, but some divine touching of their lives. For those of us who went to Sunday School as young children, one of the first things we learned is God is love. Its still one of the truest and most important lessons we can still learn as adults, particularly in how we relate with others. Some may feel we have overused the phrase, God bless you, and dont want to hear it as we go about our daily business. Reaching out with Gods love and blessing is not about imposing our faith upon another. Its simply about living in relationship with others in loving ways because we are people of faith. Do our lives reflect this in the way we deal with others? Do others sense a blessing from God because they have been in our presence? May God bless you. Mungu akubariki.The Rev.

It is not. Surviving the death of your beloved requires more work, deeper suffering, and greater endurance than marital bliss ever asked from anyone. Surviving your beloved is excruciating and arduous. Experts in the study of grief have expressed theory upon theory to aid survivors through this journey. The fact remains however, that theory is not fact. In searching for a yellow brick road to recovery, you must realize, as did Dorothy and her cohorts, that you already possess the strength and ability to survive. Identify your strengths and cultivate them. Utilize your abilities and realize that you are the only one capable of surmounting your grief. From this point forward, it is your job to continue onward without the companionship of your beloved. You must rede ne your role in a myriad of lifes situations as your own provider, your own protector, and your own strategist. If your loss is recent, it will take some time before you are able to embark on your proactive road to recovery. Centuries ago, society required survivors to wear black for one year after the death of their loved ones. From this tradition, we wonder, does it take only one year to recover from the loss of a lifetime of love? Grief is the price we pay for the gift of love. I wish I could tell you that one year of grief is all that you will suffer. I cannot. If you loved your spouse with the depth of your soul, grief may forever be your unwelcome companion.

He is the Derrick and Allison Barrett of Crawfordville. Tanner has a big sister, Taylor, a 5th grader at Crawfordville Elementary. His grandparents are Ralph and Debby Brooks of Crawfordville, Donnie and Iris Barrett of Chaires and George Fasthoff and Lisa Vince of Tallahassee.Local woman named top volunteer of international organizationMary Applegate of Crawfordville was named the 2013 top volunteer of UCT (United Commercial Travelers), an international nancial services membership organization focused on volunteer service, at the organization's recent annual convention. Applegate has been an active and dedicated member of Fort Myers, Florida Council 900 since 1997. According to her fellow members, she is an energetic UCT advocate who puts in countless hours each year giving back to the community everything from supporting Special Olympics, the Boy Scouts and 4-H to donating blood to blood banks, getting involved with recycling programs and clean-up projects, and supporting local food banks and art programs. "I volunteer because its what I love to do and I was raised to give service to those in need," Applegate explained. "The rewards for volunteering my time and energy are the thanks and appreciation I receive from those I help. Being involved with UCT has provided me with a number of ways to get involved in helping others. There have been times when I've truly felt that I helped change someones life and thats a wonderful feeling." Giving back to the community has always been a family affair for Applegate. Both her mother, Ann Glabere, and father, Carl Peltzer, are UCT members and active volunteers. Glabere, in fact, received UCT's top volunteer award in 2001. "What Mary does is truly remarkable," Glabere said. "She is an individual who is always giving of herself, and she's a great asset to our organization and the people she serves. She cares about making life better for others and people respond positively to that." Within UCT, Applegate has served through both the local and regional lines of office and has served on numerous committees. A devoted wife and mother, she is also a social worker with Habilitation Management Services in Tallahassee. About UCT UCT is a non-profit nancial services membership organization with nearly 70,000 members in the U.S. and Canada.

We are proud to have made it through an exciting summer season taking 67 youth to Camp Cherry Lake, having 26 youth attend our day camp programs and recruiting nine new shooting sports volunteers for our Shooting Sports Club. As a youth development organization that depends on community support in many ways, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our 138 valued volunteers who act as community club leaders, fundraisers, Wakulla County 4-H Association members, supporters, and judges. We would also like to thank our generous monetary supporters including Capital City Bank, S.W.A.T, Publix, Hardees, Drs. Carey and Jones, Capital City Youth Services and Free Wheelin Band. While youth who are involved in the Wakulla County 4-H Program are supported by the community, volunteers are at the heart of the program. Research indicates that when youth participate in opportunities for decision making and are supported by caring adults, social and academic development of youth is evident within their own families. Within the Wakulla County 4-H program, this partnership between youth and caring adults is fostered through the community club environment. Community clubs gather and meet usually once per month, share in an educational activity related to a project area, socialize with their peers and plan their next activities, fundraisers or community contributions. If youth or adults are interested in nding out more about the Wakulla County 4-H program, please feel free to contact the Wakulla County Extension Of ce at 926-3931. For a full list of community clubs and volunteer opportunities, please go to our website at Wakulla. ifas.u .edu or Like us on Facebook at Wakulla County 4-H. Sherri Kraeft, the 4-H Extension Agent can be reached in the of ce at 926-3931 or at sjkraeft@ u .edu and is happy to answer questions about the program or other volunteer opportunities.Wakulla County 4-H Kicks Off New 4-H Year Special to The NewsOn May 3, a graduation ceremony was held in honor of Savary Academys 2013 Senior/Graduate, Jeffery Deal.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools School Special to The NewsWith the job market currently demanding highly educated workers that can reason, think outside the box and problem solve, continuing your education after high school is more important than ever. According to the US Bureau of Labor, the level of education and the average weekly earnings, in 2011, were as follows: Some High School, No Diploma $451; High School Graduate $638; Some College, No Degree $ 719; Associate Degree $768; Bachelors Degree $1,053; Masters Degree $1,263; Professional Degree $1,665; Doctoral Degree $1,551. College/vocational school experience also includes other benefits besides potentially higher earnings, such as meeting new people, making new friends, taking part in new opportunities to explore your interests, and experiencing success at a higher educational level. Taking the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is the first step in enrolling for the college of your dreams. Each college has its own test score requirements on the ACT and/or the SAT, so be sure you know what score you are expected to meet or exceed before you take the test. The tests are offered several times per school year in various locations. ACT testing will be offered at WHS on Oct. 26 and Feb. 8. The SAT will also be offered on the WHS campus on Oct. 5 and March 8. You must preregister to be eligible to take either/both tests. WHS looks forward to our students achieving above the state levels, as the 2013 graduates did on the ACT.

Green Scene Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com60 students attend this years SEEK Conference By LYNN ARTZSpecial to The NewsTeenagers from across Florida journeyed to Wakulla County in July to attend the 2013 SEEK environmental conference. Nearly 60 high school students (sponsored by dozens of garden clubs) attended one of two four-day conference sessions based at Wakulla Springs Lodge. SEEK (Save the Earths Environment through Knowledge) is an annual statewide conference sponsored by the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Both conference sessions included the activities that have made this an outstanding, life-changing experience for students in previous years. Despite almost daily rains in July, no SEEK activities had to be canceled. Conference participants explored the salt marshes of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and visited the Apalachicola National Forest to learn about the longleaf pine ecosystem that once dominated the southeast. They stood inches away from a red-cockaded woodpecker that was captured for banding, and then released and marveled over vast meadows of pitcher plants. As part of learning about Karst hydrogeology and springs protection, participants in both groups hiked to see the sinkholes and swallets (disappearing streams) at Leon Sinks, swam in the cool waters of Wakulla Spring (a rst magnitude spring), enjoyed a boat ride over the spring vent and the headwaters of the Wakulla River, and canoed on the river as it owed to the Gulf. The canoe adventures included close encounters with manatees and many wildlife sightings. The touch tanks and fascinating critters at Gulf Specimen Marine Lab delighted the students as always. A presentation on Florida black bears included entertaining videos of bear behavior. A presentation on Floridas owls included live examples of each species. Conference participants calculated their carbon footprints, visited FSUs LEED Platinum off-grid, zero emissions building (OGZEB), and toured Marpan Recycling, the only Class 3 recycling facility in the state. Marpan successfully recycles 68 percent of the construction and demolition debris, used mattresses and furniture, and such that it receives. As a service project for the Park, SEEK participants collected litter and recyclables near the upper bridge. They also kicked back and enjoyed the ambiance at local restaurants. This is the sixth year that SEEK has been held in Wakulla County and the seventh year that Lynn Artz has coordinated the conference. For more information, please contact Lynn Artz (850) 320-2158, lynn_artz@ hotmail.com, or visit SEEKs webpage at ww.ffgc.org.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 Page 11AAfter a very successful, enthusiastic meeting of county volunteers, the Green Living Expo 2014 will be a reality. During this meeting we brainstormed on educational workshop topics, a location, additional activities to be held in conjunction to the event and vendor selection. Committees were formed to address the organizational details. Two important decisions were made: the event will be held on April 26, and it will be held at TCC Wakulla in Crawfordville. With its location near Hudson Park and other meeting facilities, the group felt it would be perfect. We determined that we would proceed with three tracks of educational workshops: Coastal Sustainability, Food Security and Nutrition, and Water Conservation. Through the Education Workshop Committee, these categories will be developed to meet the needs and interest levels of a variety of persons who wish to know more about the environment and how to live more sustainably. The committee will be locating innovative and knowledgeable practitioners and educators to assist with the presentations and vendors to display their product lines. The Green Living Expo speaks to the very nature of the county we live in sustainable living practices that will allow the beautiful Wakulla County environment to remain for generations to come. It takes a great deal of work to hold an event like this. Please consider being a part of the planning team or by serving on a committee. Because there are so many aspects of the planning, volunteers can determine how much they want to invest. You can be as involved as you chose to be. Many of the things could be completed without ever having to attend a meeting! The next Green Living Expo planning meeting is scheduled for Sept. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at TCC Wakulla I hope to see you there. SEWING SKILL UP-DATE Come join a group of people with varying degrees of expertise who want to learn/refresh their sewing skills. The group will again gather on Sept. 26 at the Extension Of ce at 6:30 p.m. and plan to learn/review basic sewing skills by making a table runner. Go to your fabric storeroom (yes, I know many of you have them!) and select two coordinating fabrics. Men and women of all ages attended our last workshop and many agreed that they wanted to learn more. Class size is limited so call 926-3931 today to get all the details and/or to enroll. COOKING WITH DIABETES WORKSHOP Our Cooking Schools have certainly been a success. It is such fun to cook, learn and dine together. If you have diabetes, eating right and managing your calories and carbohydrate intake can be challenging. Learn practical ways to plan and prepare nutritiously balanced meals at home without adding extra sugar, sodium or fat. Anyone who is overweight, has pre-diabetes, type-2 diabetes or just wants to cook healthier is encouraged to attend. This workshop will be taught by Amy Mullins, Leon County Extension, who is a registered dietician and Kristin Jackson, Jefferson County Extension. Join the cooking school participants to learn more about eating healthy and taste test recipes in this hands-on workshop. It will be held on Oct. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the extension of ce. To cover the materials, including food, a $15 payment is requested while no one will be turned away if unable to nancially assist. Preregistration is necessary. Call 926-3931 to enroll.

Whatever was left was attached by a bumper crop of caterpillars and grasshoppers. There is one heat hardy, insect resistant vegetable plant which is continuing to bloom and produce. Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) plants are still delivering the tasty pods which are the basis for numerous Southern side orders and gumbos. The origins of this widely popular vegetable are claimed by several cultures in south Asia and western Africa. The term okra is a modi cation of a tribal Nigerian identi cation for this vegetable. The rst written records of okra occurred in Egypt about 1,000 years ago. It proved to be a consistently long season crop with tolerance for a variety of soils and satisfactory yields. The vegetables popularity assured it travelled both east and west along trade routes to reach new cultures and a variety of applications. By the mid-600s okra had reached the Western Hemisphere being brought to Brazil by the way of Portuguese sailors. Within 60 years okra was being grown in the American colonies. Even Thomas Jefferson made note of its successful production in Virginia. Today okra is an important vegetable crop in Miami-Dade County which annually grows 1,000 to 1,500 acres and sold nationwide for the fresh market. Yields of this handpicked crop range to more than 1,000 bushels per acre and it is the only crop which is harvested there 12 months a year. While usually grown as an annual in Wakulla County, some warmer regions grow okra as a perennial. It is in the same plant family (Malvaceae) with cotton and hibiscus which are also grown both as annuals or perennials, depending on the latitude of the planting. Locally grown okra will remain productive through the autumn. It will sustain frost injury when temperatures drop below freezing. From a nutritional and health standpoint, okra is low in calories, fat and cholesterol free. It is an excellent source of vitamins A and C and ber. Okra is slippery when boiled, but is especially popular with served with tomatoes. It is also fried with corn meal or pickled for use as a garnish or in salads. When shopping for fresh okra or deciding when to pick from the garden, select pods which are two to three inches long, rm to the touch, are bright green and unblemished. Fresh okra will store well in the refrigerator for two to three days, retaining its peak quality. The okra variety in the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension demonstration garden is Clemson Spineless. It is a commonly produced open pollinator variety and quite popular in the Southeast. To learn more about growing okra in Wakulla County, contact the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Office at 850-926-3931 or http://wakulla.ifas.u edu/. Visits to the demonstration garden are welcome from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.Planning underway for Green Living Expo in AprilDid you spend all summer taking your kids from one activity to another, or just trying to keep them busy and occupied? Did you nd yourself sitting and watching them play because you didnt have the energy to join them? Well, now that school is back in session its YOU time! What better way to start the new season than by starting to build some healthy habits for yourself? Use the new schedule to your advantage. Go to the gym try a new class or a new workout. Theres a lot of people doing the same thing, you might make a new friend or two. Working out with a friend is a great way to burn calories and catch up on each others lives at the same time. Plus, you forget how hard youre working when you have a friend working alongside you! And although it sounds like an oxymoron, working out will actually give you more energy. Even if the gym is not for you, or youre just not ready to make that commitment, make an effort to do SOMETHING. Walk, bike, dig out those old exercise videos or go buy a new one. Find new ways to incorporate healthy eating into yours, and your familys lifestyle. Experiment with new vegetables, or new ways to cook your favorites. A few healthy habits slowly added to your lifestyle are hardly noticeable as you are starting them, but can add up to a slimmer, healthier you by the time next summer rolls around. Who knows, you may spend next summer doing fun, healthy activities along with your kids!Gena Davis is a CFT at Body-Tek 24-Hour Fitness Center in Crawfordville. She can be reached at (850) 926-2348.I know, I know, there she goes again writing about the breath. Well, this is important stuff read on, go ahead, read on! Breath is Life. It grows because thats nature! Cells exhale and inhale. They give birth to new cells according to memory, in the miracle of creation, that we so often oversee when rapt in inner dialogue. I was always striving for more, seeking to please, as we all do when we forget who we are. A few years ago, I began a daily pranayam practice. Prana is the breath, or life force. It is pure energy which gives and sustains all life in whichever state it presently resides. Exhale is letting go. Inhale is receiving. Within this binary, we have all that we need. Pranayam is the art, science and way of wakeful living. The breath is the hub of all that we are, think and do. It provides access to the mind and its deepest recesses. Pranayam, or yogic breathing practices, enable us to voyage in a steady vessel, to new territories, in order that we may continue to expand in harmony with our ever growing universe. Breathing practices are combined with asanas (postures and stances), mudras and bandhas (seals and locks), to regulate a balanced flow of prana or chi, within the mind-body. Energy cultivation is simply the art of relaxing in to our natural state of meditation. This is pure beingness, where the doer acts in accord with the divine script, for the good of all other actors in this play. Pranayam teach us that life ows into and out of us, via the breath. This leads to awareness of being, intention and positive acts. When I gaze over my shoulder, I see that all I ever needed came to me. There was no need for effort on my part. Effort always drained me, as it arose from a place of fear and clutching for personal gain. Exercise 1. Exhale Heavy Inhale Light A wonderful key to the breath is to LET GO with the exhalation. When you breathe out you are re-leasing your life. You are letting go. This takes no effort. As you breathe out, allow your body-mind to feel heavy, as though it is moving downwards, with the gravitational pull of the earth. Give yourself to your breath. Exhale Heavy with the feeling of letting go at the end of a busy day, or putting down a load of heavy shopping. How do you feel when you do this? Inhalation As you breathe in, allow your body-mind to feel light, as though it is lifting upwards away from the earth. See the effect of trying both of these extremely simple ideas. When you are heavy and grounded, you feel stable and calm. When you are light and buoyant, you feel free and uplifted. The interplay of these two opposing forces, exhale-gravity and inhalelevity, brings them together, like two atoms in nuclear fusion. Exercise 2. Now add this formula to your breath When breathing out, you are aware you are breathing out. When breathing in, you are aware you are breathing in. This awareness of the present moment gives rise to being, in which we see that all is as it is meant to be. These two exercises prove to us that our breathing has a direct relationship with our outlook and that our outlook affects our breathing. If I think I feel light as I inhale, then my thoughts are also playing a lead role in the process. Whether we are inhaling or exhaling, we are aware of how relaxed we feel. This facilitates even circulation and distribution of blood and oxygen within the joints, connective tissues, organs and glands. If we are not feeling relaxed we become aware of this. Without effort to change anything, we return awareness to the breath. As you progress and combine your intention, breath exercises and limbering practices, relaxation and vitality are sure to come.Dolly Moody is a professional Kripalu Yoga teacher at Studio 88 Dance Productions.

After a couple of weeks checking out the coast of Washington State, plus a short visit to Victoria, British Columbia, Patti and I left the Olympics and northern Washington and drove south to the Cascades and its volcanic peaks. Considered potentially the most dangerous volcano in the U.S., Mount Rainier sits southeast of Seattle. Right now, Mt. Rainier is basically inactive, but there are stirrings underground. When Mount Rainier becomes active, and it could be sooner than later a pyroclastic eruption along with the lava, mud, melted snow and ice, plus other debris forming a rapid moving lahar or mud ow could be devastating to Seattle and its environs. Mount Rainier is a relatively young volcano have formed 500,000 years ago. Nearby Cascade volcanoes Mount Hood, Mount Adams, and well known Mount St Helens, our last stop are considerably older, arising 12 million years ago. Today the area is a sleeping powder keg. We spent a good hour driving up to the sub-alpine meadows of Mount Rainier, its lodge and well-thought-out visitor center at Paradise. Three times we made this trip from our camp site at Cougar Rock. From the Visitor Center we hiked up through some of the most breath taking sub-alpine meadows to the beginning of the snow elds. Patti was enthralled with the endless expanse of blooming flowers blanketing the landscape. A kaleidoscope of colors danced in front of us. Our eyes feasted on the brilliant red and magenta of Indian Paintbrush, deep blue of lupines, calming pink of Mount ain Heather and Rosie Spirea, striking yellows of buttercups, shimmering white of Pearly Everlasting and Avalanche Lilies and more. One persons comment about the area: A trip to Paradise is going to heaven before you die. And then there is the quote from John Muir in 1889 after his visit to the area: The most luxuriant and extravagantly beautiful of all the alpine gardens I ever beheld in all my mountain-top wanderings. This quote is inscribed on the steps that lead to the Paradise trails. While walking the trails we heard many other accolades from visitors: This is the best hike in the world, and I have never seen any place as beautiful. A woman from Ohio stood in awe as she looked around her. There is nothing like this where I live, she said. I nally got some photos of a Hoary Marmot and her two young playing above their den right next to path. The marmot feasted on the lovely owers as she lumbered through the meadows. We, of course, had to keep our feet on the paths so as not to destroy the plants. Patti envied the marmots. Day after day the sun shone, the sky was a deep cobalt blue, and the temperature mild and balmy a bit unusual in Washington state. We timed our trip perfectly. We never wanted to leave. I was especially interested the rst day in the vans that pulled into the visitor center parking lot. They were filled with eight to 12 hardy looking folks, plus a leader or owner of a mountaineering business. The fellow would direct everyone for perhaps 30 minutes on how to position their backpacks so as to be fairly comfortable, and then off they would go up the trails to the distant snow peak. I got my spotting scope out a couple of hours later and could see perhaps 20 tiny human specks stomping their way up a snow slope roughly four miles away. I could also barely make out Camp Muir, their overnight base. The next day some would hike up to the summit at 14,411 feet, and then return to be picked up. Flowing down the mountains side I saw the Nisqually glacier with that chalky blue in its curvasses. One section reached a sharp drop off and so a good part of it had sheared off. Directly above this suspended remaining glacier, one day with my scope, I was stunned to see 10 mountain climbers slowly making their way above the area where the glacier had cracked and an avalanche, of course, had followed. My God, I thought, if the glacier were to disintegrate again they would all be swept off the mountainside to their deaths. I could not believe what I saw!! The strength and stamina of these younger folks, backpacking to the summit, sleeping in the snow elds, left us feeling aged. In my younger years I would have been above the timberline, very invigorated and humbled as I looked over the world below. But not now. As they say, My get up and go has done got up and went! As our climate warms the glaciers on Mount Rainier are only remnants of what they were 50 years ago. The Nisqually glacier used to ow almost to todays parking lot. Now it is a long hike to reach it. We made a brief day trip to the Portland, Ore., Zoo, which was disappointing. Being from southern California, Pattis standard is the worlds best, the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. We ended the trip spending two days checking out the west and the east sides of Mount St. Helens. You will recall it erupted on May 18, 1980, sending columns of ash 15 miles above the summit. Looking at the miles of mountain base that had been sheared clean by the explosive event I was numbed to the core. Trees ve miles from the blowout were cremated in the 680F degree temperature. Then for miles the mountain slopes had millions of attened trees, and nally 19 miles away from the blast zone the trees stood, scorched sentinels to natures fury. The eruptive force moved over a smaller foothill down into Spirit Lake once a prized resort area and caused the lake water to splash over 800 feet up the opposite shoreline sweeping thousands and thousands of trees into the lake. Thirty-seven years later they still oat, perhaps a million, in a huge log jam over a mile across. Deposited debris raised the level of Spirit Lake 200 feet. The mud ow or lahar that moved down the mountain reached the Columbia River 50 miles away. The destruction was unprecedented.

They are starting to make some big moves. The Spanish are heading back south and following huge schools of bait. Trout are moving back onto the ats and around the oyster bars. The water temperature is hovering around 82 degrees and shouldnt get any warmer than that. The color of the water has changed and its still off-colored but doesnt look like day old coffee. Rain chances for next week seem to be slim and if we dont get any large amounts of rain should start clearing even more. Fortunately the grass seems to have moved offshore and now its possible to sh topwater plugs, which both trout and reds love this time of year. Good reports are coming from St. George around Bob Sikes Cut and the Dry Bar off of St. Vincent. Some big reds are moving into the cut and sheepshead and ounder are also biting very well. Turkey Point Shoals is starting to clear and trout, reds and Spanish are being caught. Also look for reds on the high tides around the many docks along Hwy 98 from Summer Camp to Lanark Village Store. Gold spoons, live bait or top water baits should work. Fishing around Keaton Beach is very good right now and trout are hitting the Gulp under a cork or shed with just a lead head and of course they are hitting the live pin- sh under a cork. Most sh are coming from 4 to 8 feet of water. Capt. David Fife continues to catch nice reds around the oyster bars between Shell Point and Piney Island. Live mud minnows or small mullet are working very well. He is also catching some nice trout and big ounder while shing for reds. Mark and Louise Prance shed Monday evening for a couple of hours and caught two nice ounder and a couple of trout, plus bunches of lady sh and blue sh. They used a chartreuse grub and white Gulp. Thursday I shed with Lynn Artz and her husband Jim Hilyer. They took their son Chase who had just celebrated his 14th birthday on Wednesday. Its always nice to fish with good people and this was a great morning of shing. Chase limited out on trout and reds and had one real nice flounder. The ght he liked best was a big ol stingray. Chase goes to school in Utah and loves all types of sports and was a very good fisherman. I had met Jim before but knew nothing about him. When you spend ve hours on a boat with someone you learn a little about them. On Sunday I went out for a couple of hours and found trout on the ats and some nice reds and ounder around the bars. I released a 5-pound trout, which I caught on live shrimp. There was bait everywhere and before quitting I tied on a 60-pound leader and small silver spoon and got strikes on every cast. There are a lot of small jacks, lady sh and Spanish feeding on the minnows. The minnows are small so you need to use a small lure. On Sept. 22, the Kevins Fine Outdoor Gear and Apparel Seatrout Shootout will be held. Entry fee is $50 per angler and it pays 10 places. Top cash prize goes to the person with the largest 5 sh stringer of trout. For more information you can call (850) 5280553 or go to www.seatroutshootout.com. Its like Capt. Luke Frazier said in the Wakulla Times, Youre not gonna catch em sitting on the living room couch watching television. Remember, snapper season opens on Oct. 1 and there are a lot of people preparing for that day. Know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL SPECIAL TO THE NEWSChase Hilyer with his catch. By JIM TURNERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Sept. 5 Hunters may be required to have licenses when tracking any game on public lands in Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is considering a proposal to go before state lawmakers next year that would require hunters to have licenses for each species of wildlife they intend to pursue on public lands. Fish and Wildlife Executive Director Nick Wiley said Thursday during a meeting in Pensacola that the proposal was initially considered for hunting hogs, the second most hunted species in Florida after white-tail deer, but expanded in part for general safety concerns of people using public lands. Currently, a license is not required to hunt hogs and most wildlife on public lands. A question remains how the proposal will be accepted politically, which is why Wiley said the details still need to be eshed out. It doesnt seem like youd have a problem if it was tied to safety, said Commissioner Ronald Bergeron. People can be on public land hunting without a safety course, whether for hogs or pythons. Lane Stephens, executive director of the Allied Sportsmens Associations of Florida, said the proposal may be more acceptable for lawmakers and hunters than an effort a year ago when the discussion was to change the designation of hogs, which could have made it more dif cult to hunt hogs. My organization, I think, we would fully support (the current proposal), you should have a hunting license if youre out with the public, Stephens said. The Fish and Wildlife proposal would require the hunting licenses to be acquired on a species-byspecies basis. The fiscal impact is anticipated to be small. Fish and Wildlife of cials believe most people who hunt now on public lands already have licenses to hunt other game or believe that licenses are already required. Looking ahead to the 2014 legislative session, the commission may also ask lawmakers to allow those who violate certain boating laws to take the mandatory safety course online.Licenses for hunts on public lands?

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 Page 13A Practice makes perfect and that is what many of our members were working on this past weekend. Coming up in October, two of our coxswains and several of our crew are scheduled to become requali ed. This occurs every three years and is a way to not only keep us sharp, but also make sure that we are able to perform duties that may be necessary when out on a patrol. Bob Asztalos sent in the following recap on the training day. Like any other uniformed services, training is a major aspect of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. While we would be very happy if we never had to use lifesaving skills, part of our mission is to sharpen rescue at sea procedures and to keep practicing them to remain sharp. That is what the members of Flotilla 12 did on Saturday. Bob Asztalos was coxswain along with Mike Harrison and Dave Rabon. Tim Ashley was coxswain along with Steve Hults and Fran Keating. Two facilities and crews went out of St Marks with the goal of practicing assistance at sea skills. The two crews independently performed search patterns normally used when we receive a report that a boat has sank and/or there is a person in the water. Skillful piloting using well thought out search patterns along with alert lookouts are necessary if we are to nd a person in a big ocean. After practicing the search patterns, the crews practiced towing each vessel in both open ocean and in the close quarters of the St Marks River. While towing looks easy it must be performed with skill to avoid further damage of a boat and the safety of the people on both boats. Lastly, they practiced man overboard drills. Quick action is necessary once a person falls overboard because they can be swept under or away with swift currents. While we are happy at the end of a patrol that is uneventful, we are all content in the knowledge that if we are called upon to render assistance at sea, our skills are sharp and we are ready for the call.

This summer we had increased reports of lion sh invading our shing grounds! Search the Internet for Eradicate and Lion sh and you will be overwhelmed with documentary articles, YouTube, and anxious plans to reduce this explosive population. Lion sh (Pterois volitans/miles) is a beautiful, but toxic-spined aquarium sh that has escaped into our wild and with few natural predators, taken over the Caribbean, Bahamas, Atlantic Coast of the U.S. and now the Gulf of Mexico. Two years ago we rst reported nding this invasive species in 105 feet depth off Cape San Blas. They are now commonplace in deeper water off our shore, and will soon move closer to shore. Our customers are posting video of their exploits killing large numbers found on local reefs and ship wrecks. http://nas.er.usgs. gov/taxgroup/ sh/lion shdistribution.aspx In a recent article on reef health at speci c survey sites, Lad Akins at Reef.org stated, Between 2008 and 2010, the combined biomass of 42 reef species declined by 65 percent, on average, across the study reefs due to lion sh predation. Presentations last year at the FSU Marine Lab on lion- sh research in the Bahamas documented the destruction of healthy reef communities as these apex predators (in competition with grouper and snapper) moved in. So what can be done? We could create a market for the sh and thus a demand at restaurants and sh markets. There are lion sh cookbooks in print already. The sh will need to get big enough to harvest, at which time they will have done the greatest harm to the reef inhabitants. The larger sh are found in deeper water, where fewer people frequent. We could exert intense eradication pressure on selected popular dive sites in an effort to keep their numbers low. New collecting technology is coming to better protect the collecting diver, such as small tripoint spear guns, protective gloves and solid see-through holding bags. The Florida International University Scuba Club (http:// uscubacats.wordpress.com/dive-for-a-cause/ lion sh-eradication-initiative/) has organized a lion sh hunt complete with rules and prizes in South Florida. They combine the hunt with a sh fry of their catch of the day. Lion sh Eradication Certi cation from SDI is available in Panama City Beach on Oct. 20-22 for under $400. Become quali ed to safely handle these beasts as injury is both painful and can be severe. If the risk is so high, why bother? Information is slowly coming out that a focused effort can make a difference. Removing 20 lion sh on a single dive equates to saving approximately 300,000 juvenile sh over a one-year period, Dr. Dayne Buddo remarked recently, pointing out that one lion sh is capable of eating 20 juvenile sh in one feeding event, and they normally feed twice per day. In-water monitoring has shown a reduction in the numbers of lion sh at key locations around the island studied. Researchers have also seen good results from the catch data from the shermen, as they have reported a reduction in the lion sh catch, reported Dr. Dayne Buddo of the University of the West Indies Discovery Bay Marine Lab. One of our customers suggested a reward for collecting a predetermined number of lion sh, such as a tag permit for a Goliath Grouper.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comThere are some inevitable facts associated with living in Wakulla County and, for that matter, North Florida. For natives and long-time residents these facts seem obvious. For more recent transplants there is an epiphany when the apparent realities are recognized with a degree of startled amazement. This moment of awakening is sometimes predicated upon acknowledgment of a painful truth. Yes, summers are hot and electric bills will be higher. It is true weeds will grow faster and higher than grass in a lawn. Granted, there are large roaches in Florida, even though some people insist on politely calling them palmetto bugs. Luckily there is a solution close at hand for controlling these insects which are generally regarded with painful acknowledgement as disgusting and repulsive. The Southeastern five-lined skink is a common lizard and the most common skink species in Wakulla County, but it is infrequently seen. They are, by local standards, a large lizard with the potential to reach eight inches in length. The body background color is usually gray, brown, or black with ve white or yellowish stripes running the length of this reptile, two on each side and one centered down the back. It has short legs, a sleek body and a deceptively listless appearance. At a distance of several yards it is easily viewed, seemly dozing without a care in the world. Let a roach, any variety will do, or other tasty insect pass close by and the skink becomes a polychromatic blur in pursuit of its next meal. Southeastern fivelined skinks prey on a wide variety of insects, spiders, other invertebrates and occasionally engage in cannibalism when the situation requires, but they are especially fond of roaches. While occasionally seen in the open, these reclusive and shy lizards are most often encountered in leaf litter, beneath logs or under the bark of decaying trees. When pursued, these lizards generally sprint for the nearest tree or brush pile and can be quite dif cult to capture. These young skinks have a bright blue tail with a metallic sheen. On adult males the stripes usually fade and are replaced by reddish or orange coloration around the head, but their scales retain the reflective luster. The bright colors are hard to disguise in the wild for both juvenile and adult Southeastern ve-lined skinks. If attacked, these skinks will detach their tails when restrained, distracting the predator and allowing the lizard to escape. These skinks are sometimes referred to as scorpions and are believed to have a venomous tail or a toxic sting. This is not true, but there are some scientists who speculate these skinks have an offensive taste to some predators. During the summer female southeastern ve-lined skinks lay a clutch of up to 15 eggs in moist soil or decaying wood. They demonstrate an unusually high level of parental care by attending the eggs until they hatch. In communal nests females alternate foraging and guarding of the nests so the eggs are continually guarded. When the eggs hatch, the young are ready to eat and roaches are on the menu. To learn more about skinks and other lizards in Wakulla County, contact the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Office at (850) 926-3931 or http:// wakulla.ifas.u .edu.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 Scouting offers lessons to last a lifetimePage 6BIs a cruise for you?Travel by Linda Carter Page 14BLady War Eagles beat Rickards, lose to ChilesVolleyball, Page 4B sports news and team views SportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach Normally, the local cross country teams are returning to the high school at noon on a Saturday, but this past weekend they were just getting on the bus to travel to Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville to compete in the ultra-competitive Katie Caples Invitational. The WHS runners joined over 1,000 other high school runners and 53 teams from all over Florida, as well as from some of the top programs from Georgia and Alabama. The runners were split up into six different races, with the elite boys and girls races not starting until well after dark. This fact alone makes these races unique and a once in a season experience. The races are run around the perimeter of the school and portable lights are used to supplement the schools xed lighting so that the runners can see to navigate the three loop course. Running after dark, in arti cial lighting was a new experience for the local teams and something they will talk about for the rest of the season. The JV boys were the rst WHS runners to race and, as a whole, found the course to their liking. Over 430 runners participated in this race. Nine local boys ran, with all nine recording season best times. These included Riley Welch (22:45), Connor Whit eld (23:17), Justin Goates (23:36), Toby Jordon (23:43), Nick Emerson (23:46), Logan Cook (24:33), Tyle Westcott (25:04), Alex Smythe (28:01) and William Thomas (34:18). The varsity girls were the next group to run and our local girls all ran strong races, but lacked a fth runner to record a team score. Individually, they were led once again by senior captain Margaret Wiedeman (22:16), who was also individually recognized for nishing in the top 20 overall. She was 15th. Lydia Wiedeman was the second local nisher, running a season best time of 22:59, and nishing in 29th place after unleashing a withering nishing kick over the last 200 meters and passing four other runners. Connie Lewis was the next WHS nisher, running a season best time of 24:27 and Marlee Kelly ran very consistently to also run a season best time (27:22). The next to go, was the Elite Girls race, which included a good portion of the very best female runners in the state. In fact, the rst place Florida teams from 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A schools were all in this race, along with many of the other top 10 schools. WHS runner Madison Harris was entered as an individual in this race in order to expose her to the highest level of competition possible. After getting totally cutoff about 150 meters into the course and signi cantly boxed in, Harris spent the rest of the race steadily picking off other runners. At the 3/4 mile mark, she was in approximately 45th place, but continued to pass people until entering the last 200 meters in 15th place. At that point, she hit the track and showed why she is considered one of the best 800 meter runners in the state, by unleashing a devastating kick and passing three other runners, to nish in 12th place in a new personal record time of 19:58. Turn to Page 3BCROSS COUNTRYTeams compete at Bishop KennyBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net The Wakulla War Eagles pulled out a lastsecond win last week, with wide reveiver Keith Gavin making a leaping catch in a corner of the end zone for the winning touchdown to send the home crowd into an ecstatic uproar. Wakulla sealed the deal with a two-point conversion thrown by Franks ending the game with a score of 28-21. Afterwards, Head Coach Scott Klees shared what he thought was the best part about the game: Our character, he said. With 22 seconds left and down by 6, they didnt hang their heads. A lot of teams as young as them would have, but they didnt do that and it paid off. Klees said he was very pleased with a lot of areas of his teams performance. He was complimentary of his defense, although he said, they still have a long ways to go. But were de nitely working hard, he said. GAME RECAP The game between the War Eagles and the Navarre Raiders looked at first as if Wakulla might have a fairly easy run of it as a Franks to Franks connection early in the first quarter to gain a rst down was followed shortly thereafter by a MaLik Thomas run into the end zone for a touchdown less than five minutes into the game. A successful extra point kicked by Feleipe Franks put the score at 7-0. Navarre then took over on the 20 yard line, but a sharp-looking Wakulla defense forced a fumble that was recovered by Caleb Fell putting the War Eagles on the 35. However, a fumble put the ball back in Navarres hands. On the Raiders second down, Kieryn Parsons broke up a pass, but a ag thrown revealed a pass interference resulting in a rst down for Navarre. The Raiders, at third and about four, couldnt convert, forcing them to punt, which was broken up by a great effort on the part of the War Eagles. But with the rst quarter coming to an end, a Wakulla fumble put Navarre in good scoring position. An impressive catch by a Raiders receiver put them near the end zone, but the quarter ended before they could score. Less than two minutes into the second, Navarre managed a rst and goal position and a toss up to the back of the end zone resulted in a completion and a ag on Wakulla for defensive holding. Navarres kick was good to tie the score 7-7. During Wakullas next possession a long toss by Franks was caught by Keith Gavin to convert a third and six into a first down, putting the War Eagles near the end zone. Another completed pass between the two resulted in Gavins scoring Wakullas second touchdown of the night and a good kick by Franks put the score at 14-7 with 6:35 left in the rst half.Turn to Page 3BWar Eagles show character in winWakulla earns win in the nal seconds over Navarre PHOTO BY BILL ROLLINS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSWakulla linebacker Daniel Sanders, playing with a cast on a broken hand, brings down a Navarre runner.NEXT GAME: The War Eagles travel to Marianna to play the Bulldogs on Friday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. DISCOUNT LIQUORS DECOY LOUNGEAND Offer Expires Spept. 30, 2013850926-3212*10%OFFANY PURCHASEMAKING ROOM FOR CHRISTMAS STOCK*Must present original coupon from printed newspaper only.

The Wildcats 6th graders dominated the rst quarter with a good running game and a stingy defense. Keyshawn Greene carried the ball two times for 34 yards and a touchdown, and Lyric Oaks had one carry for 8 yards. The offensive line, lead by Hunter Nichols, Andrew Carter and Chandler Crum, controlled the line of scrimmage and the Wildcats 6th grade defense held the Bears to -4 yards in the quarter. The second quarter saw the Wildcats score threetimes, and started with a 24 yard touchdown run by Dorian Allen on the rst play of the quarter. The Bears fumbled on their rst possession, and wide receiver Rawn Brooks scored a few plays later on an 8 yard pass. Later in the 2nd quarter, Malik Rollins intercepted a pass and returned it 33 yards for the nal Wildcat score of the quarter. The Wildcat 7th grade defense held the RMS 7th grade offense to -11 yards of total offense. The domination continued in the second half with the Wildcats out gaining the Bears 161 yards to 84. The Wildcat offensive line, lead by 8th graders Zac Boone, Taylor Williams, Jacob Robison, Blake Goldin and 7th grader Hunter Reeves, allowed Athan Dempsey to rush 5 times for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns, and Cephus Greene to add another touchdown and have 4 carries for 42 yards. Austin Geiger ran the ball 2 times for 9 yards, and Michael McKenzie-Brown completed an 8-yard touchdown pass. Gabe Barwick also intercepted a pass in the Wildcats 50-8 win. In week two of the season, the Wildcats beat the Seminoles of Florida High 30-0 in a weather delayed mudfest. The Wildcat defense, lead by Jacob Robison, held the Seminoles to just 21 total yards, and the Wildcat offense rushed for 239 yards and passed for 20. Athan Dempsey lead all rushers with 68 yards and a touchdown on 6 carries, DJ Reynolds had 50 yards and a touchdown on 2 carries and Cephus Greene rushed 6 times for 41 yards and a touchdown. Greene also had an awesome 43 yard touchdown called back for an illegal blocking penalty. Dimonte Riles added a 27 yard run and Dorian Allen completed his only pass attempt for a 13 yard completion to Rawn Brooks. The Wildcats next game is at home against Madison County on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

RMS hoped to emerge from their next contest, a Sept. 3 matchup with Tolar, with some answers. Although the Bears came up short, 16-14, a few questions were answered for RMS. The RMS offense got on the board rst, powered by the tough running of 8th grade running back Kody Zanco. Zanco would lead all rushers, nishing with 84 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown. Most of Zancos yardage came in the rst half. The second half seemed to belong to the thunder and lightning combo of 8th grade running backs Hezekiah Gross and Chris Beverly. Gross powered his way to 70 yards on 6 carries and a touchdown, while Beverly chipped in 64 yards on 4 carries. Although the Bear offense had a sizeable advantage in yards produced, they also had 6 turnovers, two of which led to both Tolar scores. The Bears were led defensively by Kody Zanco, who had 8 tackles and 5 assists. Chris Beverly added 5 tackles, while Caleb Carter levied 4 tackles of his own. RMS new defensive coordinator Trey Thaxton said, The defense made a great improvement from the rst game. We played a bend but dont break D, with Zanco and Darrius (Wilkins) pressuring the back eld most of the night. Despite losing the game 16-14, the RMS coaches could see a little progress. According to head coach Joey Jacobs, We played a whole lot better in most areas of the game. Now we just have to be committed to getting better every week. Alluding to the Sept. 12 matchup at Taylor County, coach Jacobs added, Our commitment will de nitely be tested when we play Taylor. The Taylor County game will be in Perry at 6 p.m. War Eagles show character in winFrom Page 1BHer time was only one second off Margaret Wiedemans school record time of 19:57. She was also recognized individually for nishing in the top 20. The nal race of the night was the Elite Boys race and, for the first time ever at a large invitational meet, the WHS boys were seeded in this division. This was a compliment to our boys and how far they have advanced the program, and also gave them a chance to run against many of the best runners in the state. Albert Smythe and Aaron Smith led the way for the local team, with Smythe opening a small gap on Smith in the last 300 meters of the race and nishing in a new personal record of 18:38. Smith, recovering from a nagging injury, ran strong throughout the race, finishing in 18:46. Freshman Bryce Cole, running his rst of cial high school cross country race, was the third WHS runner, nishing in 19:31. He was followed by Mitchell Atkinson (19:53), Alan Pearson (20:10), Travis Parks (20:21), J.P. Piotrowski (20:22), Colton McCully (21:23) and James Story (22:31). Overall, the boys nished in 21st place. The WHS teams have an open date this weekend and will compete next at the Alligator Lake Invitational in Lake City on Sept. 21.Cross Country competes at Bishop Kenny From Page 1BThe following possession by Navarre resulted in third down and nine, but a sack made by Jordan Franks forced the Raiders to punt. Then, a ag thrown for pass interference on Navarres defense converted Wakulas third down into a rst, but an unsuccessful series forced a War Eagles punt which was returned for a touchdown with 21 seconds left, tying the score at 14-14. Wakulla broke the tie with ve minutes left in the third on a pass to Jordan Franks that was taken to the end zone for a touchdown. An unsuccessful pointafter put the score at 20-14. The War Eagles then went to work on defense as they put heavy pressure on Navarre. Bryson Beverlys first of two sacks brought the Raiders to a fourth down situation, forcing a punt. Wakulla then took over on the 44 yard line. With pressure placed on Feleipe Franks by the Raider defense on a second down, Franks found his brother for a completion, but a penalty put them at third down. An interception thrown by Franks followed, but Navarre was unable to make anything happen before the end of the third quarter. On third and seven, Wakullas Beverly and Hunter Hurst team up, sacking the Raiders quarterback. Navarre decided to go for it on fourth down, but could not convert. With second and five from the 36 yard line, a Franks to Franks completion picked up a rst down and on second and eleven, a completion by Gavin picked up four yard, putting Wakulla at third and seven. The War Eagles gain ve yard when a false start penalty on Navarre put them at third and two and Thomas carried the ball for a rst down with 6:24 left in the game. On the following third down and three, Bryan Nichols picked up a rst down, but a ag on the play put them back to third and ten where an impressive catch was made by Jordan Franks, but it wasnt enough for the rst down. Navarres possession followed. A sack made by Fell, followed by an incompletion brought up third down, but a completed pass wasnt enough for a Raiders rst down. With 1:22 left in the game, Navarre succeeds in getting a rst down with a completed pass that was followed by another in the end zone for a touch down. A good kick put the Raiders ahead by one with a score of 21-20. An onside kick attempt by Navarre was unsuccessful as it was picked up by Wakullas Andre Brown, giving the War Eagles a rst and 10 at the 5 yard line. A pass was then completed by Antonio Morris with 17 seconds left followed by an incompletion to Franks. On the War Eagles third down and 13 seconds left in the game, Frank managed to find Gavin who made a leaping catch in the end zone for the winning touchdown.

Wakulla Highs Varsity Volleyball team was defeated by the Lawton Chiles Timberwolves in three sets earlier in the week on Tuesday. The Timberwolves, who are a very strong team with three Division I commits, defeated the Lady Eagles 12-25, 15-25, and 1925.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 Page 5BBy MARTY COHENLets face it, this is a rivalry based on historical implications only. Yes for 50 seasons, from 1938 to 1987 (except for 1943, when Florida didnt field a team due to the vagaries of war), Florida and Miami squared off every year. It was generally a bitter get-together, an annual meeting bathed in more enmity than encompassed any other foe on the Gators schedule. It has always been that way. Its been almost two decades since I wrote a book called Gator Tales, a light, s o m e w h a t breezy look at the history of Florida football. The research from the golden days reveals that the intense dislike between the fan bases of the two schools has been simmering for about 75 years. Heres an entry from Floridas student newspaper the Alligator, from back in November of 1939, following a 13-0 Gator road triumph over the Hurricanes: The city of Miami and townspeople showed plainly that they have a long way to go before Miami becomes a great football town. Students report that big, bad cops grabbed them when they attempted, in true Florida fashion, to show Miamians how to celebrate a football victory. Some reports say that Florida men, good and true, were thrown in the Bastille of the Magic City. Dont you just love old-time sports writing? Keep in mind this is almost 20 years before Florida introduced Florida State to college football. Anyway, it gets juicier heres an excerpt from the Nov. 9, 1951 Alligator: An era in Florida football is coming to an end right before our eyes. The traditional Georgia-Florida struggle is being replaced rapidly by the Florida-Miami game. Miami came on the sports scene later than Florida and has utilized its climactic advantage to climb toward the top rapidly. Florida has resented the climb. On the other hand, Miami has resented Gators past dominance of state football. Mix this together with the Miami attitude toward the Florida farmers and the Florida attitude toward Yankee sharpsters, and you have the ingredients of a red-hot football duel. Traditionally Georgia is the big game for the Gators, but it just doesnt rank with the Miami game in the basis of feelings on the opposing campus. As a New York native who came to UF some 35 years ago, I should probably be offended at ostensibly being referred to as a Yankee sharpster, but its actually pretty amusing. So you get the idea, with some frame of reference, where the feeling surrounding the Florida-Miami series emanates from historically. It has always been more of a fan-stoked rivalry, particularly from the Hurricanes perspective.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gatorsBy BOB FERRANTEChris Weinke had seen Jameis Winstons talents for the rst time in January 2012.Weinke was coaching at the Under Armor All-American game, and one of his players was Winston the nations top quarterback. Winston completed 8 of 9 passes for 178 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown pass, and was named the games MVP. That was my rst glimpse of him, Weinke said. I was excited about him back then. Fast forward 20 months to Monday night. Weinke, who won a national championship and a Heisman Trophy at Florida State, watched from his television Winstons stunning debut 25 of 27 for 356 yards and ve touchdowns (four passing and one rushing) in a 41-13 win over Pittsburgh. The numbers tell the story. A 92.6 completion percentage is almost unheard of for even an NFL All-Pro quarterback let alone a 20-year-old redshirt freshman making his college debut on the road in front of 65,000 fans. But it goes beyond the numbers. Winston showed a calm, composed demeanor. His poise in the pocket, his natural ability to be able to move around and keep his eyes down- eld, Weinke said. I was just very impressed with what he was able to accomplish in his rst game. Hes only going to continue to get better. The future is very bright. Winstons rst game came on a Monday night a primetime game with all of college football watching. He dominated the discussion on Twitter, prompting frequent updates about his consecutive completions (11 straight to start the game) and his statistics. Florida State fans enjoyed the show, especially after Winstons breakout performance (12 of 15 for 205 yards and two touchdowns) in the Seminoles spring game in April. But the hype grew through the summer and reached a fever pitch in the 10 days between Jimbo Fishers announcement that Winston would be the starter and Monday nights game. But Florida States quarterbacks from past years could appreciate Winstons performance more than perhaps any fan. Theyve all had to step on to the eld that rst time, nervous and anxious and trying to lead the team to a win. I would have loved to have a game like that in my college career, let alone my rst game, said former Florida State quarterback Danny McManus, who led the Seminoles to an 11-1 record in 1987. There have been some impressive rst starts for Florida State through the years. Danny Kanell threw for 341 yards and had ve touchdowns in a 49-20 win over Maryland in 1993. Dan Kendra threw for 281 yards and three touchdowns in a 1996 win over Wake Forest. And two years ago, Clint Trickett passed for 336 yards in a loss at Clemson. McManus is in a group of Florida State starters that had four touchdowns in his debut (vs. Tulane in 1985), including Charlie Ward (vs. Duke in 1992). Winston matched Kanells ve touchdowns and went 15 yards better. Take it easy on me man, Kanell said on Twitter. Save some of those records for me! Keep working hard and representing Noles on and off the eld #proud And rookie quarterback EJ Manuel chimed in on Twitter from Buffalo while watching his teammate from a year ago: On the edge of my seat watching J pick em apart #proud For McManus, the game con- rmed what he had seen in practice a few weeks back in Tallahassee. McManus lives in Venice, Fla., but scouts the state for potential Canadian Football League prospects for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Winston, of course, is likely bound for the NFL in the years to come. But McManus enjoys watching quarterbacks in practice and in games. What he saw was signi cant. Some guys their eyes get huge (in a game), said McManus, who threw for more than 50,000 yards in the CFL. But he was ne, he was calm. You see a young guy get into a game, things are sped up and then they try to speed up their play. And now the mechanics get all messed up. From what I saw in practice to what I saw in the game was exactly the same. And the situation on Monday wasnt pretty early on. Pitt had driven 80 yards to open the game and take a 7-0 lead. Florida States rst drive ended in a punt. But then a Jalen Ramsey interception set up the Seminoles at Pitts 24. Two plays later, Winston found Nick OLeary for a touchdown. Florida State would score on its next six drives, too. His ability to stay even keel throughout the course of the game was so impressive, Weinke said. You dont see that very often out of a young quarterback. What he was able to prove to people is that he has a great understanding of the offense. More times than not, young quarterbacks do not feel comfortable because they dont have a total grasp of the offense. He has a great understanding and knows where to throw the football. And he did it at a very high level. Very rare to see that in a young quarterback. Weinke and McManus agree that Winston possesses another trait. He is of course a dual-threat quarterback, someone that ran for more than 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns as a senior at Hueytown (Ala.) High. But Winston felt the pressure in the pocket and used his legs to buy time to nd an open receiver. Not to scramble and run for daylight. A lot of guys being that young probably would have tucked it and ran away, McManus said. He just had to buy a half a second and he did that. Weinke has spent the past few years mentoring quarterbacks at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Hes worked with a long list of players that were preparing for their rst NFL season. But Weinke was also struck with Winstons pocket presence. That was one of the most impressive things, Weinke said. With young guys they get into panic mode. And when something is not perfect, their natural reaction is to tuck it and escape the pocket. I use the term working in a telephone booth. Thats the pocket for the quarterback. He was able to stay calm within the telephone booth and still be able to deliver balls very accurately while there was a lot of chaos around him. Hes a great athlete, he can make some plays with his feet. But his No. 1 attribute is his ability to process information and throw the ball with accuracy. Sometimes you dont see veteran guys thirdand fourth-year (college) guys be able to stay within themselves. Especially the rst game of the year.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comScouting offers lessons to last a lifetimeBy DAVID DAMONBSA Unit CommissionerIts that time of year again, when parents and students make choices about their school year activities how to fit all the after school programs into an already busy school and family calendar. Its impossible to t everything in, and choices have to be made. Consider a program that teaches life skills that your son can use their entire life. Ask yourself, can I tie a bowline knot if the need were to arise? Can I build a re to keep myself warm after getting lost in the woods? Can I perform CPR or basic lifesaving rst aid when in a situation where there is no cell phone service and no help coming soon? Am I independent enough and confident enough in my abilities to throw everything I need into a backpack, hike to some otherwise inaccessible natural setting and enjoy myself for the weekend. If you have been in Scouting, you could. Imagine the self con dence in knowing that the answer is yes to all of these questions, especially for a younger person starting out in life, preparing to tackle the adult world. Whether for recreation, or whether for survival, the Boy Scout programs available today teach our youth these skills and many many more, while helping to instill moral values that will guide them for a lifetime. One knot, one basic rst aid course, one camping trip or scout activity at a time. They learn to appreciate and respect nature and become responsible stewards of the environment, developing into responsible adult leaders for our future. No other program today can offer such a broad range of life lessons and skills for our youth. As an adult you may wish youd had a chance to learn these skills, well, you still can. As an adult volunteer or leader, working within the Scouting program, you too will be exposed to these programs. Its never to late to get involved and go to that summer camp you wish youd gotten to do as a kid, and its just as much fun to learn and experience Scouting as an adult, through your own children. Talk to any family involved in Scouting and they will have stories to tell of camping, and hiking and canoeing, and of the many Scout events. Stories from the time the canoe turned over in the wintertime, and of the Scout that woke up one morning, laying there in pain as he talked about the Brown Recluse spider that must have bitten him in the middle of the nightuntil he realized that the massive swelling was really a big wad of bubble gum stuck to his hand. As a parent youll hold your breath, but be proud as your son takes climbing at summer camp and scales a 50-foot tower, and then repels its walls. Then one day, when your son becomes an Eagle Scout, that is a memory youll never forget and a day that will change his life forever. Doors will open for your Eagle Scout, and hell realize one day, that getting him involved in Scouting, was one of the greatest gifts you ever given him. This is Scouting, join the fun and make memories that will last a lifetime, while learning skills that hell use for a lifetime. Cub Scouts is for boys starting in first grade, through fth grade.Boy Scouts is for Middle School and High School age young men.

Dear EarthTalk: What is the new documentary lm A Fierce Green Fire about and what does the title refer to? Gloria Howard Washington, DC A Fierce Green Fire is a new lm documenting the rise of the modern environmental movement from the 1960s through the present day. It premiered at last years Sundance Film Festival and will be playing at select theaters across the country beginning in September 2013. Educators, environmental groups and grassroots activists also will be showing the lm at small and large events from coast to coast over the course of the fall. Written and directed by Mark Kitchell, Academy Award-nominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, A Fierce Green Fire (the lm) is based on the 1993 book of the same name by environmental journalist Philip Shabecoff. The phrase a erce green re refers to a longer passage in one of the seminal environmental books of the 20th century, 1949s A Sand County Almanac. In the famous Think Like a Mountain section of that book, author Aldo Leopold relates his experience as part of a predator extirpation team that shoots a wolf in the New Mexico desert: We reached the old wolf in time to watch a erce green re dying in her eyes. I realized then and have known ever since that there was something new to me in those eyes, something known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view. Kitchells lm shows how this passage and other writings were instrumental in raising awareness about the importance of wise stewardship of the natural environment and as such played a crucial role in the re-birth of the environmental movement in the 1960s. Featuring ve acts, each with its own central story and character, the film depicts a central environmental conflict of each decade since the 1960s. The rst act, narrated by Robert Redford, focuses on David Brower and the Sierra Clubs battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon in the 1960s. Act two, narrated by Ashley Judd, tells the story of Lois Gibbs and other Niagara Falls, New York residents struggle against pollution buried beneath their Love Canal neighborhood in the 1970s. Act three is all about Greenpeace and efforts by Captain Paul Watson to save whales and baby harp seals, as told by Van Jones. Chico Mendes and Brazilian rubber tappers take center stage in Act four, as narrated by Isabel Allende, in their ght to save their Amazon rainforest. Lastly, Act ve focuses on Bill McKibben, as told by Meryl Streep, and the 25-year effort to address the foremost issue of our time: climate change. Intertwined within these main stories are strands including the struggle for environmental justice, getting back to the land, and sustainability efforts in the developing world. The lm ends on an optimistic note, driving home the point that environmentalism is really about civilizational change and bringing industrial society into balance with nature and that each of us can make a difference with a little effort. Those interested in seeing the lm should check out the schedule of theatrical releases at the films website, afiercegreen re.com. The website also features more information on the lm and features historical photos of some of the scenes and events depicted in it. Anyone who wants to nd out more about the the makings of the modern environmental movement should be sure to see A Fierce Green Fire. GOT AN ENVIRONMENTAL QUESTION?

Special to the NewsPilots with Operation Migration (OM) have been guiding new generations of captive raised Whooping cranes from Wisconsin to Florida since 2001. Cranes are produced at captive breeding centers and begin the imprinting process with costumed caretakers who carry puppets resembling adult Whooping cranes. By the time they are ve days of age they are comfortable spending time with the small aircraft, which will guide them on their 1200-mile journey in the fall. To comply with current FAA regulations, the aircraft used by OM must comply with the Special Light Sport Aircraft category. The planes currently being used do not t within this designation, so OM must replace their three existing aircraft, which will allow them to continue to introduce Whooping Cranes using the aircraftguided migration technique. To accomplish this, a crowdfunding campaign has been established in hopes that the public will help to make this acquisition a reality. The campaign features a video which describes the need and offers some perks to supporters who contribute to the campaign. Donors can give whatever amount they choose and receive a variety of bene ts ranging from a certi cate of appreciation (for a $50 donation) to ones name on the aircraft (for a $1,000 donation)! Whooping cranes were on the verge of extinction in the 1940s. Today, there are only about 600 birds in existence, approximately 445 of them in the wild. Aside from the 106 birds in the Eastern Migratory Population, the only other migrating population of whooping cranes nests at Wood Buffalo National Park in northern Alberta, Canada and winters at Aransas NWR on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Page 8B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Sept. 6 It was a week of mysteries in Florida politics. What will the $500 million tax cut that Gov. Rick Scott promised look like? Nobody knows. Not even Scott. Where did Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, stand with his colleagues after the discovery of a previously-unknown campaign account he had set up? Nobody was really certain, just like few people outside of Rousons inner circle seemed to know about the account in the rst place. And a far more serious mystery continued to unfold about what happened years ago at the shuttered Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys. WHAT CAN I GET FOR $500 MILLION? Scott spent Wednesday making a variety of appearances at events that he said were about jobs. The last stop was at the grand opening of a Bass Pro Shops store in Tallahassee where NASCAR driver Tony Stewart, Miss Florida USA and a variety of hunting and shing celebrities stood alongside the governor on a parking-lot stage. But after his appearance at the event, Scott told reporters that his administration had not released details of one of his key initiatives for the 2014 legislative session a $500 million reduction in taxes and fees because Scott didnt know exactly what the details were yet. Instead, the governor said he was looking for feedback on how to continue his mantra of holding down the cost of living in Florida. So Im working with the House and the Senate to get everybodys idea, he said. I want to ask all of the citizens, what are their ideas? On Friday, the governor laid out a plan for doing just that. Scott said he would embark on an Its Your Money tour of the state to ask the citizens what he should propose in the form of a tax cut. Scott said he would visit West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa and Orlando to hear from those who had ideas on how taxes should be sliced. Meanwhile, the Florida Democratic Party took advantage of reports about the projected size of the state surplus to take a whack at the tax-cut proposal. An early nancial projection showed that the state could have a surplus of $845.7 million as lawmakers look to craft a budget for the coming scal year, which begins next July 1. But there are caveats, including the fact that $449 million of the surplus is considered onetime money, and all of the other uncertainties that accompany a projection for a scal year that is almost 10 months away. Nonetheless, Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant hammered away, saying there was no way the state could cover the cost of the tax cuts and continued increases in spending on schools. Voters deserve to know just how much education funding will suffer because the governor wants a new talking point for his re-election campaign, Tant said. After over $1.3 billion in cuts from education, our kids cannot afford to fall victim to Rick Scotts political games again. WILL DEMS STILL WANT TO BE AFFILIATED WITH ROUSON? An already-challenging 2014 election cycle for House Democrats, who will be defending several freshmen in swing districts just as the six-year itch hits President Barack Obama, got a new speed bump when Rouson spent the latter part of the week mixing it up with Tant and other party leaders. It was an awkward position for a man who is set to lead House Democrats after the election. Party leaders discovered this week that, in August, Rouson had set up a fundraising body called the Florida House Democratic Caucus Affiliated Party Committee one of the leadership funds that Democrats had attacked when Republicans reinstated them in 2011. Tant fired two staffers involved in the brouhaha, prompting an angry email from Rouson to his House colleagues. This overreaction today by FDP is an example of why we must continue in this direction for the long term viability of our electoral success as a caucus, he wrote. In a private meeting with Allison Tant yesterday she could have discussed this matter but she chose a public forum to air an internal matter. It is the second public dustup between Rouson and fellow Democrats in less than three months. He faced heated criticism from two House Democrats at a caucus meeting in June, shortly before the partys annual fundraising gala. Most Democrats were cautious Friday, saying they wanted more time to figure out what was going on. There are a lot more questions than answers at this time, said Rep. Alan Williams, a Tallahassee Democrat who brie y ran against Rouson for Democratic leader before backing Rep. Mia Jones, D-Jacksonville. HELP WANTED Perhaps its not mysterious, but there are a still a handful of of ces around state government whose occupants are unknown. Among them: the internal watchdog at the statebacked Citizens Property Insurance Corp., a position that will ultimately be lled by Scott and the Florida Cabinet. Hector Collazo Jr., the inspector general for the Pinellas County clerk of court, and Thomas Raftery, a former member of the FBI who is now with the Delaware River Port Authority, received the most support from a three-member selection committee vetting the applicants. But all four names were sent to the Cabinet, including Bruce Meeks, a former member of the state attorney generals of ce who is now a partner with the law of ce of Roberts & Meeks in Tallahassee, and R. David Holmgren, a deputy inspector general for inspections and evaluations at the U.S. Treasury General for Tax Administration. I just assume that we do all four, give them (Scott and the Cabinet) the broader rather than the narrow, said committee member Tom Kirwin, the inspector general for the Department of Financial Services. There will be just one name for the job of interim chancellor of the State University System: Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Of cer Jan Ignash. Board of Governors Chairman Dean Colson said he would recommend Ignash during a meeting next Thursday; she would take over temporarily for Chancellor Frank Brogan, who is moving to a similar job in Pennsylvania. And speaking of jobs, state Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, said this week that he will be looking for a promotion. Baxley intends to run for Senate in 2016. LOOKING FOR DOZIER ANSWERS Investigators also continued to try to uncover what happened at the Dozier school decades ago. A group of researchers from the University of South Florida announced Tuesday that they had nished the latest part of their work, exhuming the remains of two boys from halfcentury-old unmarked graves at the Panhandle reform school. The team will now try to identify the remains before returning in search of additional bodies. The two boys are among at least 50 sent to the school between 1900 and 1952 who were buried in unmarked graves, said Erin Kimmerle, a USF anthropologist who is one of the leaders of the excavation. Others have claimed the body count could top 100. The researchers intend to return in October or November to exhume bodies from unmarked graves in other locations on the once 1,400-acre campus that now sits closed behind chain link fencing topped with barbed wired. The state hopes to eventually sell the land. Identifying the bodies could be har der than nding them. As children, they didnt have direct descendants and the parents had their last known address over 50 years ago, Kimmerle said. So you really have to nd aunts and uncles, and then the cousins and go down a generation or two and nd where these people are living today. STORY OF THE WEEK: Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, faced criticism from fellow Democrats for setting up an af liated party committee to raise funds for the 2014 campaign, throwing into doubt whether he would remain the choice to lead House Democrats after the 2014 elections. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: We have a very glamorous and handsome and winsome cool black guy for president. I think theyre quite concerned whats going to happen when hes not on the ballot next time. I just dont want them to use this issue. What I saw him do is shift. They cant deliver on the hate crime from the Department of Justice so they pivoted and said lets go look at all these self-defense laws.--Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, explaining his thoughts on the reason President Barack Obama had allegedly politicized the states controversial Stand Your Ground law.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Mysteries abound in Florida politicsBy SLIM RANDLESSeptember means pencils, books and teachers dirty looks for the youngsters, but it also means state fair season. Thats when the worlds largest zucchini squash is at its prime, of course. The farm animals are all shed off and shiny and cute, their horns polished to diamond-like perfection by hard-working and hopeful kids. The state fair is an annual pilgrimage of sorts, the fairgrounds another temporary home. We need to touch base with turkey legs, corn dogs and deep fried everything. We who sport gray in our hair, or no hair at all, can look with relief at that giant slingshot that shoots high school kids into a state fair orbit. Its a relief because no one expects us to do that. And when we were young enough to actually do that, thankfully, the diabolical state fair scientists hadnt invented the darn thing yet. Cruising around, you get to see everyone at their best. Best fair-type clothing. Best behavior. Best smiles. If you scowl at any point during a visit to the state fair, you either arent trying very hard or someone ran off with your date. And we make those little secret promises to ourselves too. You see, wed love to win a ribbon for making a quilt, or raising an animal, or taking a fabulous photograph or coming up with the best painting in the whole state. But not all of us can do those things. Maybe there should be some other categories for the rest of us, such as finding a parking spot close to the fairgrounds that doesnt cost $5. Practical things. Or how about a ribbon for not missing a days work all year? Or for being a nice guy and always letting other drivers change lanes in front of you. Somehow, though, we have to be content with just knowing we did those things, so we can feel like a state fair blue-ribbon winner inside. Join the conversation wherever you go. Good hearing keeps you connected with friends and loved ones. Call BELTONE at 1-866-867-8700 to schedule your FREE hearing screening..

Page 14B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 12, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comIs a transatlantic cruise for you?By LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsTransatlantic cruises have been attracting travelers for generations. Once the playground of the very rich, todays repositioning cruises are value priced. Debunk the myths, and discover that there is something for everyone. Even the most expensive cruise lines have relaxed dress codes. A tuxedo is not mandatory, and most nights are smart casual. Choose to dress up and enjoy the few formal nights or wear shorts to the casual dining caf. For the athletic, try a few laps around the track, Zumba, yoga, spinning or aerobics classes. Perhaps try an afternoon workout in the tness center. Learn the tango and the salsa with the ships dancers. Then cool down with an indulgent treatment in the spa. Choose intellectual pursuits with the enrichment series lectures. Photography, history, antiques, astronomy the lecturers and topics vary on each sailing. Take classes on the iPad. Or learn to speak a foreign language. The choice is yours. Make sushi, or learn how to cook the perfect steak at the cooking demonstrations. Better still take a cooking class on Oceanias Regatta. Discover your inner artist with watercolor or scrapbooking classes. On Celebritys Silhouette attend daily glass blowing demonstrations by the Corning Glass Institute. Read by the pool outdoors, or in the solarium. Enjoy a luxuriant soak in the whirlpool with views of the sea. Find a deck chair on the promenade and watch the world go by. On Royal Caribbean, families are never bored. Ice-skate, climb the rock wall, play a round of mini-golf, surf on the ow rider, play volleyball or basketball, stay as busy as you like. Need some alone time? Most cruise lines offer an excellent childrens program. For fun and games, attend the not so newlywed show, dancing with the of cers, guest talent show, or afternoon trivia contests. Catch a movie with Princess Cruises movies under the stars for a one of a kind experience. A daily schedule announces the lineup of activities. Entertainment is on tap day and night. By day listen to live jams by the pool, or acoustical guitar as you sip cappuccino. By night Broadway style shows dazzle, and musicians, singers, comedians, jugglers, and dancers are de rigueur. Featuring a variety of styles, there is live music all evening long, and a DJ in the club till the wee hours. Relax on your balcony as you nosh on room service. Up early, or sleeping late, breakfast is waiting. Grab a burger by the pool, or a fresh grilled salmon steak in the solarium on Celebritys Solstice class ships. Enjoy seated lunch on sea days, or simply choose a la carte meals in the caf. At dinner savor ve course gourmet meals. Dont forget room service is 24 hours. Last minute transatlantic cruises, known to repeat cruisers as TAs, can drop to as little as $35 per day, per person. Even with return airfare the per diem will often still be under $100. When you consider this includes food and lodging as well as transportation and entertainment, it is de nitely a bargain. As the last sea day rolls around, you will wonder where has all the time gone?
