The biggest misconception when someone says a wounded warrior or an injured soldier is that if you cant see the injury, then its not there, says WQWDF Event Coordinator Marcy Collins. But, a lot of them are in a lot of physical pain and suffer emotionally even if they look normal on the outside. The Warriors and Quiet Waters program began in Bozeman, Mont., in 2008 when Marine Colonel Eric Hastings and retired physician and Naval of cer Dr. Volney Steele joined forces to provide a rehabilitative experience for wounded servicemen. Not only did both men hold firsthand experience as to what a soldier goes through mentally and physically, but also, they both would describe themselves as avid fishermen who know just how bene cial the activity can be. It was with that realization that they decided to start the WQWF. After establishing a successful program, which involved bringing wounded warriors to the quiet waters of Bozeman for a six-day stay based around fly-fishing, Dr. Steele, by chance, moved to the Ochlockonee Bay area. Not long after Steeles arrival in 2011 and with the help of local volunteer firemen and first responders, a southern chapter was created and chartered in 2012. The WQWF, Southern Chapter, holds the same mission, but in Florida, the soldiers are taken shing on the Gulf, rather than y- shing. Each soldier, or warrior, who takes part in the program is active duty military and are either hospitalized or disabled in some way. According to Collins, the programs board of directors goes through a stringent process, working with military hospitals around the country to obtain participants. When WQWF hosts soldiers for a week, its called an FX, explains Collins. The term is a play off of one they use in the service that means eld exercise, but for the week with WQWF, it means shing experience. So far, the southern chapter has held two FXs since getting established. The rst was held in May 2013 and the most recent wrapped up last week. This year we held two, says Collins, but we hope to eventually have at least three a year. The hope, she says, is also to eventually branch out to family members, inviting them to come stay and fish with their loved one. The biggest obstacle, though, is nancial support. On average it costs about $4,000 per warrior per FX, Collins says. The soldiers who come are invited at no cost, which is made possible by fundraising and the generosity of local vendors. The foundation raises funds throughout the year, but the single most important event is the Warrior Classic Weekend, which takes place during the rst weekend in May. In 2014, the Warrior Classic Weekend will be held on Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3. That Friday, there will be a golf tournament hosted by Southwood in Tallahassee and Saturday will hold a bass tournament on Lake Talquin. Both events will raise money through sponsors, raf es, auctions and more, Collins says.Turn to Page 5A GIVE-AWAY! Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

The main thrust of the judges opinion is that the constitutional amendment that limited net shing the so-called net ban is at odds with the rules created by the state to enforce the amendment, creating a legal absurdity of regulations. Citing the contradictions between the Florida Constitution and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Judge Fulford enjoined any further enforcement of the net ban amendment, the FWCs authority to enact net rules, and a series of mullet rules. The attorney generals of- ce led an immediate notice of appeal at the First District Court of Appeal within hours of the judgment being led on Tuesday, Oct. 22. The case was originally led in 2011 and went to a bench trial in August 2012 that included the somewhat unusual step of Judge Fulford going out on a shing boat to see how the mullet nets are used and what they actually caught. Fishermen contended the small mesh nets that FWC rules required them to use caused them to catch mostly juvenile mullet, which they argued was a violation of the net bans intent to stop over- shing and waste of marine resources. The FWC, represented by Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Glogau, argued that shermen had litigated the same issues over and over since the net ban passed in 1994, and was yet another attempt to take a bite of the apple. Judge Fulford found that past net issues had been taken up piecemeal, and that what she was looking at was the application of the net ban and the rules adopted by FWC. It seems unlikely that the nal result was considered as a whole: that FWC would rule that con ict with the net ban amendment by carving out exceptions to the clear ban on the use of gill and entangling nets for some, while enforcing the net ban for others. It is not directly stated in the judgment, but Fulford does raise the question of whether mullet fishermen faced some sort of discrimination by FWC. In a footnote, she writes: Which begs the question: why is it that the only ones who seem to be complaining about the net ban amendment and how the FWC has chosen to regulate shing are the mullet shermen? Could it be that the FWC is only enforcing these laws against mullet shermen, as the shermen suggest? She adds that the question cant be answered by this court, but may possibly be answered in another forum. Over the past nearly 20 years of court cases, shermen have usually prevailed at the trial court level, but have been derailed by the appeals court and only made it to the Supreme Court once, in a case that de ned what was a legal shrimp net in 1995. The net ban amendment was approved by voters in 1994 to outlaw gill and entangling nets in state waters. It did leave shermen with two 500 square foot nets and speci cally exempted cast nets as not being gill nets. The stated purpose of the amendment was to protect marine resources from over- shing and waste.Turn to Page 3A By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net County commissioners voted at their meeting Monday night to approve two different public hearings that will look at an amendment to Chapter 8 of the countys Code of Ordinances, as well as an ordinance relating to property abatement assessments relating to code enforcement issues. Earlier in the year, county commissioners voted to allow the countys code enforcement of ce to pursue foreclosures for a list of 10 properties with extensive lien amounts against them. The issue had put into motion conversation about code enforcement liens, the extent to which theyre allowed to accrue and making the process more ef cient as a whole. A workshop held on June 3 produced the boards decision that amendments to the Code of Ordinances should be made. The changes before the board at their recent meeting speci ed the creation of section 8.009 pertaining to violations pertaining to threats to public health, safety or welfare. In such cases, after providing the property owner with ample notice and opportunity to rectify the situation, the county would be given the authority to perform the work necessary to cure the situation the cost of which would then be assessed against the property pursuant to county code procedures.Turn to Page 3A Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford Warriors and Quiet Waters Warriors and Quiet WatersThe soldiers who visited Wakulla for shing on the Gulf.Injured soldiers visited Wakulla County last week for a therapeutic shing experience NOAH POSEY RECEIVES AWARD Page 12A Page 12A
Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comMighty Mullet Festival celebrates Apalachee BayBy JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsThe Big Bend Maritime Center hosted the Mighty Mullet Maritime Festival and Bay Day at Woolley Park in Panacea on Saturday, Oct. 19. Calypso tunes set the lively tone for those who came out to enjoy the fall day. Board members of the BBMC, Bill Lowrey and Roger Pinholster, dedicated the Larry Tucker Watercraft Center with Larry Tucker and his family in attendance. Larry Tucker is known to many in Wakulla County and comes from a long line of boat builders and craftsmen. He has worked with Pinholster and lent his expertise to create a state of the art woodworking shop at the Center. The Larry Tucker Watercraft Center workshop was open for festival goers to tour as boat builders worked on a wooden kayak and a wooden skiff and answered questions about both the adult and youth boat building schools offered. There were many vendors selling handmade goods, including Wakulla West Bank Apiary by Kathy Shira, who raises bees and sells honey and beeswax skincare products. As well there were vendors selling birdhouses, t-shirts and artwork. Educational booths were aplenty, including a booth by North Florida Gulf Seafoods, where Steve Cushman and Lesley Rankin had a photo display that described the art of oyster farming. As well, Storm Lawler was demonstrating how to throw a cast net, while his father, Marvin Lawler, was giving people pontoon boat rides from Rock Landing Marina. Good Southern food was available for purchase, including fried mullet, grouper, ounder and shrimp. Lighthouse Seafood Market out of St. Marks sold a mullet plate with coleslaw, hushpuppies and french fries, while Dottie from Outzs Too on highway 98 sold oyster shooters out of the back of her antique station wagon. There were a few bouts of rain, but it subsided after only a couple of threats and the air cooled as the Mighty Mullet Festival wrapped up another successful year.A wonderful day on the bay for good food and fun activities for all ages Larry Tucker, in cowboy hat, with family for the dedication of the Larry Tucker Watercraft Center. The ROTC from Wakulla High School volunteered during the Mighty Mullet Festival and were treated to pizza during a rain delay.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 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. Board votes to expedite lien foreclosuresJudge strikes down net rules Wakulla County School District has achieved a 29 percent cost savings totaling $544,121 in 13 months since forming a strategic alliance with Cenergistic, a national energy conservation company. The Energy Pacesetter Award was presented during the board meeting on Monday, Oct. 21. The Energy Pacesetter Award is for organizations setting the pace in energy savings for others. It is designated only for programs achieving above-average savings, recognizing the support and cooperation of administration, faculty and staff organization-wide. I am extremely pleased to accept the Energy Pacesetter Award on behalf of the district, said Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce. He credited Beth Brown, the district energy specialist, with committing the time, energy, and hard work toward energy conservation so the dollars saved can be redirected to other needs. Brown tracks energy consumption including electricity, water, sewer, natural gas and fuel oil using energy-accounting software. She compares current energy use to a baseline period and calculates the amount of energy that would have been used had conservation and management practices not been implemented. By tracking consumption and analyzing energy use, she can quickly identify and correct areas that need immediate attention.WILLIAM SNOWDENDistrict saves $544,000From Page 1AThe item also includes an amendment, which gives the county attorney the authority to initiate foreclosure proceedings after three months of from the ling of the code enforcement lien if payment is not received. This part of the item is what County Commissioners Ralph Thomas and Richard Harden voiced concern about. I want to stress that I am against the foreclosure of anyones property due to code enforcement liens, Commissioner Harden said. This shouldnt be an automatic thing once the three months are up. Commissioner Thomas expressed thoughts along the same lines. If were going to take someones property, thats the most extreme thing we can do, he said. That should come to us, not just be a routine administrative action. Chairman Randy Merritt expressed the need, to a certain degree, for the middleman. The issue goes on so long, he said, that by the time it gets to foreclosure the amount is, in many cases, larger than the worth of the property. Commissioner Howard Kessler indicated that the board should place con dence in the code enforcement officials and their ability to do their job fairly and as they see t. Staff is not looking to take away anyones home, he said. Code Enforcement is set up to take us out of the middle. With that, Merritt agreed saying that the more politicians are taken out of situations such as this, the better off everyone will be. Commissioner Jerry Moore expressed his support of expediting of the process. If we can bring things like this before the board more quickly, he said, it will be better for everybody. The request to have a public hearing on the item was passed unanimously. The second item, which requested another public hearing relating to the countys ability to step in to rectify a public health, safety or welfare situation pertaining to properties and later be compensated for their efforts, also passed unanimously. Before doing so, however, the board speci ed that the property owner would be given three notices, the rst of which would be sent certi ed mail for assurance that it was received and that there was an appeal process available. In another matter before the board, Merritt brought before the board an item requesting the approval of an amendment to County Administrator David Edwards employment agreement. Our administrator is asking for a severance in the event that he gets red without just cause, Merritt said. He wanted to make clear that in the event that the administrator resigns or messes up, he would get no such severance. Harden pointed out the clause that said that this would only be enacted if Edwards were red without just cause, saying that he agreed and supported that stipulation. Moore expressed deep gratitude for Edwards and the work that he has done for the county. For the kind of work and the way he goes about his job, I think hes grossly underpaid, Moore said. Through his leadership hes brought us out of debt, we have our first ve-year plan and a better understanding of the budget. Moore said that if he could give Edwards a raise, he would, and even that he had brought up the notion to the administrator, but that Edwards had said he wanted no part in receiving a raise unless his employees got one too. Hopefully this is something well never have to use, Commissioner Thomas said. Kessler expressed his disappointment that the budgetary impact in the item read, none at this time. We would be losing, by my calculations, over $40,000 if this were to happen, Kessler said, adding that he thought a severance is reasonable for a county administrator because of the political nature of the position. The item was passed unanimously. A separate motion was made on the subject by Moore that, should Edwards decide to resign, he give 90 days notice. His reasoning, Moore said, is that should Edwards decide to leave, the county would be in a world of hurt at the prospect of trying to replace him. The item passed on a 4-1 vote, with Kessler dissenting. LOCAL NEWSThe Wakulla Newswww.thewakullanews.comDistrict staff with a check representing the $544,000 in energy savings. From Page 1ABut the crux of the problem right away was the issue that all nets gill. The Marine Fisheries Commission, precursor to the FWC, sought to create a bright line between gill nets and legal nets by creating a maximum mesh size of two inches stretched, and outlawing mono lament. For years, shermen have fought the twoinch rule, rst arguing that the size is arbitrary there is no scienti c basis for the rule. After litigating that, and ultimately losing at the appeal court level under the rational basis test that is, a law or rule is presumed legal if it is rationally related to a legitimate government purpose. But fishermen using the two-inch nets claimed it caused them to violate the very purpose of the amendment, because the small mesh caught 90 percent small juvenile sh sh that werent legal to possess or sell while larger, legal sh escaped. Fulford looked at it in reverse: if all nets gill, then all nets are illegal except cast nets. And the FWC cannot create rules that make exception to the constitutional provision. The net ban amendment is clear and unambiguous, Fulford wrote. The wording that leads to this result that all nets in Florida are illegal except for a cast net is not caused by an interpretation. Its the clear and plain language of the amendment. The contradiction in the Florida Constitution is not the only issue rendered absurd in this case. It is also absurd that a net as de ned by FWC as lawful for the mullet shermen to use, cannot even be used in the manner prescribed by FWC to catch legal sh. Even FWCs own expert testi ed to that fact. So even though a court has previously determined that the method as adopted by FWC had a rational basis at the time the rule was adopted, its prescribed use is a physical impossibility. Panacea fisherman Ronald Fred Crum, one of the named plaintiffs in the case, said he had been in contact with Gov. Rick Scotts of ce about trying to come up with a legal solution. Attorney Ron Mowrey, who represented the shermen, said he was pleased with Fulfords judgment, saying it con rmed what shermen have always said that the amendment was intended to limit, not ban, net shing. He added that the record showed FWCs rulemaking authority has been abused resulting in unlawful, discriminating rules which, as enforced, destroy the shing resources. Mowrey added it was time to apply the amendment as interpreted by voters, and not as had been enforced by FWC. Glogau could not be reached for comment.

Editor, The News: I read Mr. Brimners letter to the editor (Who shut down the federal government?, Opinion Page, Oct. 10) and almost screamed LIES. Our Representative, Steve Southerland has been an eager participant in the Tea Party efforts, which closed down the Government and almost pushed us off the scal cliff. Even to this last vote that got over 80 Senators and 280 Representatives to pass the reopening of the Government and pulling us back from the scal cliff, Mr. Southerland (I say Mr. because I do not feel he is representing us.) voted NO on this very bipartisan and critical bill. I strongly believe this NO vote of his shows how little he is listening to us, his constituents. Please call him to let him know we want our representative to work together and intellectually for us and we will surely remember this and all his obstructionist votes next November. Let me recap these votes: 1) Over 40 votes to repeal or dismantle the Affordable Care Act, which has been signed into law and approved by the Supreme Court. 2) His votes putting forth non clean CR bills that had no chance of passage and that caused the government shutdown costing the fragile American economy over $24 BILLION. This obstructionism has hurt too many people small businesses that rely on federal parks, military families needing help, seniors wanting access to our memorials, our sick getting access to very important medication trials, and TOO many more. 3) Look up HR 368 on the 113 Congress, which removed our representatives rights to put forth a bill. We are a democracy not a dictatorship. Mr. Southerland has consistently voted to obstruct and this has cost us jobs, over $24 billion in economic losses in just this 16 day shutdown, loss of trust in our Congress, and more. Please call him to let him know we are tired of all this obstructionism and get this done like Immigration, Social Security, and JOBS Legislation.

Really?Why not give other functions to the state?READERS WRITE: Follow us on Mental illness and substance abuse a dual diagnosis Rep. Southerland means what he saysBy RITA HANEYIt is astounding to know many people, men, women, young and old are attempting to treat the symptoms of many diagnosable mental conditions such as depression, bi-polar and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with drugs and alcohol. This approach to these disorders is not helpful, but doubles the symptoms of both. The use of drugs (and alcohol is a drug) actually increases symptoms, and soon the drug or alcohol also begins taking a toll on the body and mind. A good example is depression. Alcohol is a depressant and yet the rst drink lies allowing you to feel better. So another drink could only make you feel even better. A person soon may drink and/or drug even more. The depression deepens and the continued use of drugs causes more problems. The misuse of drugs and alcohol can have disastrous results. Impaired driving, loss of employment, theft to feed a habit, aggressive behaviors ending in jail time are common occurrences for those who suffer from mental illness. Not to mention probation, loss of drivers license fear and suffering to both the person themselves and to families as well. Add PTSD, Delusional or Schizophrenia Disorders to the mix and a person self-medicating ends up in jail for petty crimes as well as serious offenses. County jails across the country and prisons, are dealing with many who are dual diagnosed. Jail is no place for people who are not in touch with reality, often hear voices or suffer from trauma. Dr. Paul Knowles from the Tallahassee Behavior Health Center at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital is speaking at NAMI Wakullas meeting on Monday, Oct. 28, at 6:30 p.m. the Crawfordville Womens Club regarding the treatment of those affected with a dual diagnoses, a mental disorder such as depression combined with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Every one in the community is welcome to this free educational program. Rita Haney, LCSW, is a counselor in Wakulla County and wrote this on behalf of NAMI Wakulla. She can be reached at 926-2039.Editor, The News: Our Nation has been weakened in the past few years by lack of leadership and an abundance of self-promoting political pundits and politicians. The recent government shutdown is but the most recent example. The lack of any coherent foreign policy from the White House has made the U.S. less respected abroad. The consuming desire to strip away personal freedoms from Americans at home has led to a divided government and at times a paralyzed federal government. North Florida voters made a statement in 2010 and again in 2012 that we wanted a check and balance on a federal government that continued to restrict personal freedoms and expand the size of government. There are but a few politicians in Washington that you can count on to say what they mean and mean what they say and thankfully U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland is one of those individuals. In Congress since 2011, Rep. Southerland has already established himself as one who will stand up for what is right and not be beholden to any person, group or political party but will vote and stand by his own convictions. Do not believe the lies that he votes the party line or how his leaders tell him to. Anyone that claims that is simply not paying attention. During this latest debacle over the budget, Mr. Southerland voted numerous times to fund the essential elements of the federal government and avoid a shutdown, but he also held rm to his personal convictions and that from the voters of North Florida, that certain elements of the budget should not continue, namely Obamacare. As a result, Mr. Southerland stood strong against the culture in Washington that is so out of touch with the people of North Florida. I acknowledge a shutdown is not pleasant, but Mr. Southerland was elected and reelected to oppose the continuing encroachment of federal power on so many personal freedoms and he has stood by that mandate in an ever more corrupt Washington, D.C. Others in Congress, those in Tallahassee, and leaders locally should take notice of the principle with which Southerland makes decisions and cast votes. North Florida should be very proud and thankful that our values are represented in Congress by a man of integrity and strength of character. Jonathan Kilpatrick Chairman Wakulla County Republican Executive Committee Editor, The News: Some of our Wakulla County commissioners expressed strong concerns at recent commission meetings about the duplication of efforts between our local government and state government. It was stated that letting the state perform exclusively certain functions that our county now performs would save considerable money. Undoubtedly, if implemented, the countys budget could be reduced i.e., if the money was not spent on something else unneeded. But would that be cost effective is another manner; our citizens pay both local and state taxes. In this vein, I wish to illustrate some ways Wakulla County could significantly reduce their budget. We could turn over all law enforcement and our jail system to the state and eliminate our sheriffs of ce. Certainly the Florida Department of Corrections and Florida State Police have manpower, equipment, knowhow, and experience to carry out these functions and eliminate a very major expenditure out of our countys coffers. So, why not? There are a number of reasons: (1) Citizens have enhanced accessibility to enforcement service when needed. (2) Local law enforcement of cers have better familiarity with local conditions. (3) Local services are more available when needed as they are not competing with needs in other counties. (4) It is more time-ef cient and service is rendered faster. (5) And, it is more convenient for our citizens. If the state did not increase their resources, would we get the same level of enforcement services? And, if they did provide the same level of service, would not they have to increase their budget? Then, would it not possibly cost the tax payer more because of inef ciencies in such an arrangement. In summary, we do it locally because of accessibility, familiarity, availability, ef ciency, and convenience. Other local Wakulla functions we could turn over to the state include: (1) Local planning and zoning functions to the Community Planning & Development, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. (2) Local public works road building and upkeep to Florida Department of Transportation. (3) Local Commission Legal Services to Florida Of ce of the Attorney General. (4) Wakulla County Library to Florida Department of State, Division of Library & Information Service. (5) Local Veterans Services to Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, (4) Local Health Department to Florida Health Care Administration. (6) Local Tax Collector to Florida Department of Revenue and Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. (7) And, a good many other functions. Gee, think of all the money Wakulla could save by turning over these and other local functions to the State. I will give good odds that our commission will not vote to turn any of the above functions to the state. So, why is the local protection of our valuable wetlands so different with four of our ve Commissioners? The obvious advantages of accessibility, familiarity, availability, ef ciency, and convenience also applies locally to the protection of wetlands i.e., unless you dont want them protected. Commissioner Thomas stated such in his Oct. 3 Letter to the Editor of The Wakulla News (The real agenda on wetlands) saying that wetlands protections are an assault on individual freedom in Wakulla County. Certainly by the same line of reasoning we should abolish all of the countys Planning and Zoning Activities as well as traf c lights and stops signs as they all could be asserted to take away some of our individual freedoms. Victor W. Lambou CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: In his letter, Who shut down the federal government? Oct. 10), Mr. Brimner says he is confused as to how anyone could believe that the Republicans are the reason for the government shut down. I will be glad to sort it out for Mr. Brimner since he is so confused. He said to check the Congressional Record, and when I did, I discovered that there are enough Republican and Democratic votes in the House of Representatives to end the shutdown with no partisan strings attached. So, what did Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, do? He told members there would not be a House vote on a clean government funding bill. Yes, Congressman Steve Southerland voted multiple times to fund the U.S. Government, but at what cost to the American people? He voted for a Continuing Resolution (CR) to keep the government running all right while, he says, moving one step closer to a permanent delay and dismantling of government-run health care. All the polls indicate that this is not what the American people want. They want Congress to get our federal government up and running and give the American people freedom to have healthcare for their families. The Republican House voted 42 times to repeal President Obamas Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act (ACA), which the American people want. Mr. Brimner stated that Congressman Southerland and his colleagues have the responsibility to defund a program Americans do not want. You misspeak when you say that. Good health care is wanted by all Americans, that is why President Obama was re-elected. It is well known, via popular media and several reputable news sources, that the priority of the Republican Party is to do away this nations health care program. It is a fact that Congressional Republicans are putting politics first and that is evident by the wasting of time and money by voting 42 times to repeal it, among the other distasteful antics they display every day in Washington. It is very clear to me and others that it is not the Democrats who are responsible for the shutdown of the federal government. Thanks to the House Republicans, we have a Federal shutdown where there are no winners. Joan E. Hendrix A Proud Democrat

What little we do for them is incomparable to what they do for us every single day, she says. We cant repay that. Collins got involved with WQWF in early 2013 after watching a video on the programs website explaining the purpose and mission. I get chills just thinking about it, she says. I just thought to myself, how can I not get involved? Shortly afterwards, she attended a volunteer meeting and, from there, hit the ground running. Collins made it clear that all proceeds that are raised throughout the year go directly toward the warriors. The board and volunteers receive zero compensation. The latest group of warriors, hosted this month, was comprised of seven soldiers, ve of whom came from Fort Benning, Ga. while the other two traveled from Fort Lenard Wood in Mo. Upon their initial arrival at the Tallahassee Regional Airport, they were greeted by groups such as the Patriot Guard, then traveled by heroes escort provided by the Leon County Sheriffs Of ce and nearly 100 motorcycles ying Old Glory. Once at the Wakulla County line, the group was met by the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of- ce, who escorted them to Ochlockonee Bay, where they stayed for the week. During their travels along 319, citizens had gathered near the park to wave signs, clap and cheer for the visiting soldiers. The soldiers were Staff Sgt. Rob Bloodworth, Staff Sgt. Jason Young, Staff Sgt. Justin Piekema, Sgt. 1st Class Randy Hargis, Sgt. 1st Class Charles Casey, Capt. Robery Bischoff and Spc. Craig Kociborski. Before their departure on Friday, a farewell banquet was held in their honor on Thursday evening, during which local figureheads such as County Commissioner Ralph Thomas, state Rep. Halsey Beshears, Sheriff Charlie Creel and others spoke and thanked them for their service, hard work and sacri ce. Throughout the week, local vendors such as Angelos, Coastal Corner, Crums Mini Mall, Poseys, Capts. Mike McNamara and Chris Oaks and more played key roles in out tting, feeding and chartering the shing ventures of the visiting soldiers. The southern chapters board of directors consists of seven members: President Anthony Stephens, Vice President Steve Fults, Treasurer Bill Russell, Secretary Nile Strain, Clay Kuersteiner, Dan Hinchee and Thomas Wright.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR Whats in a name, anyway?By JAMES L. SNYDERI cannot express how ecstatic I was when someone gave me a coupon for a free donut. Normally, I am not overly excited about free. All I had to do was ll out a little survey online and they would send me a code that would guarantee me a free donut. In my daily diary diet, I have a whole section devoted to the subject that when a forbidden food is free it cancels out all calories. When I first told the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage she looked at me rather strangely and said, Who said that? I know we are both getting old but we are not that old! I got close to her, waved my hand so she could see me and said, Its me. I just said it. Can you see me now? That is not funny. You know exactly what I meant. My grin drained from my face and I said to her, Well, I said it. Did, she said inquisitively, anybody ever say that before you said it? My wife has many talents, skills and gifts. It would be dif cult for me to say which is her best gift but at the moment, her greatest skill is backing me into a corner. And in a corner I was thus backed. I then had to explain to her, in detail, how this was an observation I worked through with much research. This is an original with me and I am quite proud to be the author. All she said was, Huh, that is exactly what I thought. I will go to my grave believing when a donut is free it means it is free of calories. Call it what you will but free by any other name is still free in my personal dictionary. Getting back to my free donut. I was anxious to get to the donut shop, cash in the coupon and enjoy a donut. I do not know when the best time to eat a donut is, so I just started at my convenience. I got at the donut shop and walked in and the smell was overpowering. Nothing like the smell of donuts baking in the oven with a hint of coffee brewing in the background. I just stood there for a few seconds absorbing the luxury of this marvelous atmosphere. It is not often I can enjoy such luxuries, especially if my wife knows where I am. When I became adjusted to the ambience, I walked up to the counter and presented my coupon for a free donut. It was at that moment I saw them. I know I am not the most observant person at the circus. Many things get by me without noticing them. Sometimes I am just in deep thought and not aware of my surroundings. I can relate to Walter Mitty in many ways. There they were, freshly baked Apple Fritters. I was stunned. It just never crossed my mind that a donut shop would have this kind of delicious tidbit. But there they were. Freshly baked and staring at me with alluring eyes of desire. I do not know how much better a day can get than this. When I got up this morning, I did not realize this would be a wonderful day. There they were staring at me and I staring back and immediately there was a connection. Standing in line I could hardly wait for my turn to order. I presented my coupon for a free donut and the young woman behind the counter said, Which donut can I get for you, sir? I savored the moment, licked my drying lips and said, Ill have an Apple Fritter. With that said, I sighed a deep sigh of true contentment. Im sorry, sir, the young woman said. There is no need to be sorry, young lady, I said as cheerfully as I possibly could. No, sir, Im sorry but an Apple Fritter is not a donut. I can take a joke as well as anybody else. In fact, I have put forth my share of jokes. However, an Apple Fritter is no joking matter. Excuse me, I said almost breathlessly. An Apple Fritter is not a donut, so what donut would you like me to get for you? The thought began unfolding in my mind at this point that she was not joking. She sincerely believed an Apple Fritter was not a donut. I know an Apple Fritter is among the Cadillac of donuts but in my mind, it is still a donut. I did not have much opportunity to set this young woman straight with one of the great fundamentals of life. I had to take one of her free donuts along with my coffee, go to a corner and think about these things. What good is free if it is not really what you want? Sometimes people use the word free as a device to get you to a place where they can sell you something else. The Bible is the only place I will accept a free offer. One particular verse sets this forth quite nicely. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32 KJV). This is often used out of context. The truth that makes us free indeed is none other than the truth about Jesus Christ. He is the only One capable of delivering something absolutely free.Rev. James L.

Green Blake T. Roberts Eloise Edwards LylesPhases of mourning BEREAVEMENT COLUMN By TRACY RENEE LEE I often hear people refer to a teenagers poor behavior as a phase. Somehow, this interpretation or usage of the word lessens its true application. A phase as described in the dictionary is a process of change or development. This true meaning of phase is exactly what we are describing in the Phases of Mourning. Each phase as it is accomplished brings the survivor back to a balance in life. It allows joy, peace, and tranquility to return. Mourning is divided into four phases. 1 A PERIOD OF NUMBNESS. Numbness is the deprivation of physical or emotional sensations. The numbness experienced by most survivors, helps them to disregard that death has occurred. This short period of numbness allows them to function in a manner close to their normal level of productivity. This is particularly noteworthy, as there are very important decisions to make at this time. 2 A PERIOD OF YEARNING. The survivor yearns for the return of the deceased and does not yet comprehend the permanence of this new reality. Anger is generally experienced during this phase. Anger may be directed at the deceased for not being there to help out, or for in icting loneliness and pain upon the survivor. Anger may also be directed at others for not doing something to prevent the death of the deceased. It may also be projected upon others or self, for non-factually based perceptions, affecting the cause of death. 3 A TIME OF DISORGANIZATION AND DISPAIR. The survivor is learning that things are not the same. They nd it dif cult to function as they once did. Each experience that was once a cooperative effort is now their sole responsibility. This is the most crucial phase of the experience to overcome. If a survivor is unable to move beyond this phase, they are in danger of entering severe depression and recovery may become extremely complicated. 4 A REORGANIZATION OF BEHAVIOR. In this phase of mourning, we see the survivor change all aspects of their existence. They pull their lives together and begin to function at their normal capacity, albeit alone. Although life has forever changed, if a survivor passes through each of these phases successfully, grief recovery will be clinically completed. They should be able to satisfactorily accomplish their daily activities and eventually participate in social activities with greater ease. My name is Tracy Renee Lee.

Special to The News The Florida Bluebird Society's 2013 Statewide Fall Bluebird Blitz will be held Friday Nov. 8 and Saturday Nov. 9. Faith Jones, Chair of the FBS Statewide Bluebird Blitz, said the goal of the Blitz is to gather information about bluebirds in Florida in an effort to help determine the health of the species in the Sunshine State. Reports from participants over a span of years will help reveal if Florida's bluebird population is increasing or decreasing. This requires learning the location and number of bluebirds throughout the state. The Fall Blitz will help reveal where bluebirds find food and survival habitat between breeding seasons. Jones stressed the role volunteers play in this concentrated effort. The more volunteers who participate in this important project, the more the Florida Bluebird Society is able help provide more information designed to help conserve and protect bluebirds in Florida, Jones said. Based on 2013 Spring Blitz results, the FBS will continue the new electronic reporting procedure. Under the revised reporting system, sightings can be entered on a spread sheet and emailed back to the FBS. As in the past, a printed form also can be downloaded and completed and mailed to Jones. In addition, bluebird sightings can be submitted on e-bird. These sighting will be incorporated into the nal Blitz report. The merged report will be posted on the FBS Web Site. The spread sheet and form, along with complete information on the Blitz and past reports by counties, are available on the FBS Web ( oridabluebirdsociety.com).

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolSpecial to The NewsThis month Wakulla High School would like to spotlight The Academic Team. The Academic Team is an extracurricular, after school club, open to all high school students. The club is sponsored by Mrs. Shari Evans, in her twelfth year, and she is assisted by Mr. Brian Jacobs, in his fourth year. The Academic Team participates in both state and regional competitions four to ve times a year and yearly in the Big Bend High School Brain Bowl. The varsity team competes almost every year at North Florida Community College where they have won here at least four times in the past 11 years. During last years Big Bend Brain Bowl, our varsity team took second place and won the $1,250 cash prize. Our JV team has taken first place in the second team division, several years in a row. In fact, the JV team took rst place just last year. Last year, the Academic Team went to the state competition in Orlando, at Walt Disney World. It was a three day adventure, and the team brought home a second place and ve third place wins in our division. Since it costs money to complete, the Academic Team has fund raisers through the school year -most notably, they sell Christmas greens at the WHS Homecoming football game. This year they are also sponsoring a middle school competition and are inviting brain bowl teams from around the local area. Wakulla looks forward to more victories from our outstanding Academic Team. Mrs. Evans stated, For a small, rural school The War Eagles Academic Team has a solid reputation, not only in this area, but around the state. We are recognized as a force to be reckoned with. Any high school student interested in becoming a member of the Academic Team of Wakulla High may attend the practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays in room 5 on the English hallway. Placement on the competition teams depends on the number of practices attended. Please see Mrs. Evans or Mr. Jacobs if you have any questions. By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAThe State Board of Education voted Tuesday to extend a policy preventing schools from dropping by more than a letter grade on their state-issued report cards through the 2014-15 school year, despite the complaints of some board members. The board voted 4-2 to continue the policy, which was rst used in the report cards issued following the 2011-12 school year and continued this year as superintendents said a slew of changes to Florida's accountability system made it hard to tell what was causing unusual drops in school grades. Board members approved the change as an amendment to a package of rule revisions that state Department of Education of cials described as technical. But the move drew concern even from some of the members who ended up voting for the plan, and particularly from those who opposed it. Kathleen Shanahan, who is set to leave the board at the end of the year, called the move to amend the plan onto the rule changes "too cute by half." She also pointed out that by the time the plan expired, a proposal that was originally intended to be temporary will have lasted for four years. "A four-year safety net becomes a bureaucracy, in my opinion," Shanahan said. By extending the policy until the grades issued after the 2014-15 school year, the policy would buffer schools through the transition to a new testing regime under the "Common Core State Standards." The new tests are expected to kick in during the 2014-15 year. "I do think that it is more important on that nal year [of the transition]," said Board Chairman Gary Chartrand. The state is still trying to determine which tests to use under Common Core, after Gov. Rick Scott ordered the education agency to begin disentangling itself from a multistate consortium that has developed tests under the new educational benchmarks. But Patricia Levesque, executive director of former Gov. Jeb Bush's Foundation for Florida's Future, knocked the school-grading move in a statement issued later Tuesday. "Florida is in a period of transition to higher standards, and stability and transparency during these times is key," she said. "That transparency provides valuable information on the state of student learning -what matters most -even when it's not what we want to hear." The debate over Common Core has lingered over the board's actions in recent weeks, after Scott issued an executive order regarding how the state would implement the new standards and measure student learning under them. Some conservative activists fear that the initiative, which was created in a state-led process and has been adopted by about four dozen states, could lead to too much federal interference in local education. Following Scott's order, the board also voted not to adopt a series of "appendices" to Common Core, including items like reading lists or suggested tasks for students. Shanahan also questioned that move, saying the appendices could help teachers. "I don't know why we're disarming the teachers," she said. Board of Education extends school grading 'safety net'WHS recognizes academic team DOE NewsFlorida College System (FCS) bachelor's degree students will have access to a world-class education in criminal justice thanks to a new agreement with The Florida State University (FSU). The FSU College of Criminology and Criminal Justice and the FCS have entered into an agreement that will help FCS bachelor's degree students transition smoothly into FSU's online Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice Studies. Any student who is enrolled in an FCS bachelor's program in criminal justice or public safety administration and meets FSU's admissions requirements will be guaranteed admission into FSU's online Master in Criminal Justice Studies program. "The signing of this articulation agreement is groundbreaking," said FCS Chancellor Randy Hanna. "This agreement demonstrates our commitment to collaboration with our partners in the State University System and provides an excellent opportunity for our students to continue their higher education at a top university." In 2001, the Florida Legislature approved FCS institutions to offer bachelor's degrees in response to the state's need for more bachelor's degree holders. Of the 24 colleges approved to offer bachelor's degrees, two have programs in criminal justice and ve have programs in public safety administration/management. The agreement also allows interested students to take two courses from FSU while still enrolled in their bachelor's degree programs at FCS institutions. These courses will count toward their master's degree upon formal admission into the program. Thomas G. Blomberg, Dean of the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice at FSU, notes, "This is a life-changing opportunity for undergraduate students. This partnership not only allows students to fasttrack their graduate coursework, but also gives them access to one of the top-ranked criminology programs in the nation, analytical and critical thinking skills, and an entire toolbox of resources they can use to nd employment at top criminal justice agencies." About FSU's Online Master's in Criminal Justice Studies Program FSU's online Master's degree in Criminal Justice Studies is offered by the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice. The College is ranked number one in the nation for faculty productivity and is home to experts in the areas of biosocial criminology, gun control, sentencing, corrections, race and inequality, and the causes of criminal behavior.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate LifeWe live in the U.S.A., the United States of Alzheimers. We have forgotten where we came from, where were at, and where we are going in this country and many, sadly, have forgotten who they really are. All of the good stories of older people are always of times past. The older one gets, the more they live the present moment in the past. Many seniors call times past the good ol days. Often times victims of Alzheimers live 30 to 40 years in the past while we are living in the present. They may even think that they are younger than their children. Sadly, its a very real part of the disease process. With Alzheimers time loses its structure and the passage of seasons and months is not fully grasped. Occasionally, only those things occurring at the moment are understood and someone with Alzheimers may nd themselves someplace without knowing where they are and how they got there. Its only a peek-a-boo moment that they may actually realize the past and enjoy only moments of the present. Alzheimers is not forgetting where you placed your keys to your vehicle. Alzheimers is forgetting what the keys are used for all together. Forgetting where you parked your car at the mall is not abnormal; however, forgetting that you own a car is not atypical for an Alzheimers victim. Some forgetfulness is normal with aging. I have experienced moments of memory loss myself. Telling the same story twice or more usually begins at around age 60. Our minds at this age are like our bladder; it begins to shrink and does not hold as much as it once did. My brain works better when I awake after a peaceful night of slumber, or after a good nap during the day. Napping is good, we should all nap more often after age 60. About 30 minutes is appropriate rest and the brain can then engage itself in thinking about important matters. Unimportant matters should be forgotten by us all and never resurrected. Hit the delete button on trivial thoughts, send them to the waste bin in the brain and delete the waste bin often. LOST IN THE WOODS I used to go hunting across the river from Smith Creek when I was a teenage boy. On rainy days in the swamp with no sun to use as a compass, I had a tendency to get lost and wonder aimlessly across streams, creeks and mud banks attempting to get my bearings. Finally, I would just sit down, get my emotions into check and start looking at the trees to determine which side the moss was on to get an idea of north and south. Once I did that, then I would head east toward the river and nd my way back to my boat. Imagine for a moment you have been hunting or hiking in the woods near your home. You are still in the deep woods and its now pitch black dark, rain clouds hide the moon and the stars, however, you know you are only about 100 yards from your home. You are so close that the lights of home are now the instruments guiding you to your house, your castle, your cocoon lled with warmth, plenty, and love. Home is a sweet thought as the rain begins to fall heavily on you. As you carefully make your way to your house in the dark woods, you hear a loud clap of thunder, a lightning bolt pierces the sky and the power goes out and your now just 75 yards from home, yet still in the forest. The lights of home are extinguished in the power failure. You seat yourself on the ground and hope the lights come back on. The rain falls even harder on you, you are cold, frozen in your tacks by darkness, and fear besets you. A lightning bolt darts across the sky for two seconds and silhouettes the shape of your home in the distance. Hope is heightened that youre almost home. You leave your position and walk blindly toward where you think your home is hoping for another bolt of lightning. As you walk in darkness you do not see the small ravine and fall, rolling to the bottom. Youre wet, muddy, and now completely disoriented from the fall. Actually, your only 50 yards from home now and as you walk in the direction you think is home, you nally come to the grassy edge of your yard.Turn to Page 11A By MICHELLE HUNTEROf the Senior CenterSeptember was the month for a Mixed-Up Holiday. The dining room was decorated with many different holiday themes, and the out ts for that days event had the variety of every holiday in the book. The center pieces for the tables were made by the seniors and each one was a different Holiday theme. Just for the fun of it, the seniors enthusiastically created the craziest combination of holiday attire. The prize for the funniest out t was awarded to Rose McDaniel; the prettiest to Clarisse Vogel; and the grand prize went to Marge Wyant, whose out t contained designs from 15 holidays. Many of the seniors participated in the Mixed-up Holiday cake baking contest, with the grand prize going to Virginia Davis. Her cake contained about 20 holiday items, including holiday refrigerator magnets. And these cakes were given as prizes during a cake walk. Looking forward to next months Falloween Holiday Party. Tamara was full of surprises when she brought out scrapbooking items for seniors to create their own personal PaperDoll, including a face photo of themselves that was to be completed with magazine parts. Oh the stories that were told and the laughter was truly a gift to all. The six-week Walk With Ease exercise program started on Sept. 9 and concluded on Oct. 18 with a graduation party for the participants. Instructors Mary Tollefson and Angel Carter worked with a variety of physical levels and kept everyone moving and motivated to complete the program. This program is supported by the Arthritis Foundation with guidelines to address every level of tness in one class. Starting on Wednesday, Oct. 23. the walking part of this program will continue at 11 a.m. If you would like to join in the walking, contact Angel Carter at 926-7145 ext.223, or stop by the center on Wednesdays. We would like to congratulate all the participants on a great effort and encourage everyone to get involved. Sept. 23-27 was Fall Prevention Week with education being the best prevention we could provide. The topics covered were exercise for strength and balance, taking medications properly, getting visions checks, home safety, and talking to your family and health care providers about any concerns to prevent falls. Volunteer Cynthia Christen, demonstrated exercises that help strengthen the bodies core and large muscle groups, for better balance, and stretching to warm up the muscles. Steve Eichart. Occupational Therapist, and Bart Ash. Physical Therapist, both from Eden Springs Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center, gave a presentation on Home Safety. Their topics included removing tripping hazards, including those outside the home, increased lightning, installing grab bars, and using walking devices properly.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 Page 11A From Page 10AThere was a test after the presentation and they gave away items that can help improve home safety. Taking your medications properly and consulting with your doctor frequently when changing or receiving new medications is important in preventing weakness and dizziness which both can cause falls. Everyone was encouraged to take a current list of medications to their doctor once a year to make sure they are taking the proper medications. Ken Methvin from Eye Savers provided services to the seniors by cleaning their eyeglasses, tightening the screws and checked for proper tting all which can prevent falls. Every 15 seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury, Methvin said. Fall prevention and safety is a very important issue at the senior center, and education is the key to prevention. On Sept. 27 we were People in Purple for an Alzheimers Awareness Day. Everyone at the center either knows someone with Alzheimers, has a family member or friend with the disease, or they themselves are affected by Alzheimers. We wore purple to show our support to those battling the disease and those looking to nd a cure. There is nothing like a room full of purple to show we care. Rhonda Harvey RPh, from CVS Pharmacy was also here on Sept. 27 to administer Flu shots. Many of the seniors participated in getting their shots as we all want to prevent the u season from coming our way. The seniors really appreciate the convenience of getting it done here at the center, and listening to the Pickin n Grinnin Band while they waited. Not one person complained that it hurt Im sure it was Rhondas smile and a hug that helped. The last Tuesday of the month was Gardening Day and new seeds went in as the old weeds went out! Volunteers from Iris Garden Club and the Sheriffs Department helped to get the garden back in shape for our fall planting. Wakulla Senior Center wants to thank the community for all your support, all our volunteers for helping with programs and fundraisers and the many people that make donations to the center.

As you walk toward the candles, you come to the shadowed columns near the front porch. Even with the blistering and blinding rain you can now see home. You trudge up the steps, you feel and find the door knob and twist it but nothing happens. You twist it even harder. The door will not open. You knock on the door but no one comes to open it. You hear familiar voices coming from within; your son, daughter, brother and sister are talking and laughing. You call out to them but they dont hear you. You stand there and realize you are just as lost as you were in the darkness of the deep woods. Why cant they hear me or respond to me? Because your name is Alzheimers welcome to their world or underworld. This scenario is where many af icted by this disease are at. They are so close to us but we cant reach them and sadly, they cant reach us. Im not saying everyone who has Alzheimers is in this exact scenario! I just wanted to give you an idea of how close they are to us at times so that you dont give up HOPE on them. They are close, so close. COFFEE BREAKS FOR THE BRAIN Some people call it a senior moment or brain atulence, I call it a coffee break for the brain. Have you ever walked into the kitchen with a pair of scissors in your hand, you stand at the kitchen sink, the sun shines through the window. As the rays of sunlight hit the blades of the scissors, a re ection of the glimmer of the blades dances on the wall close by and now you have forgotten what the heck youre doing with scissors in the kitchen in the rst place. Its a transcendent moment for you! You can wonder and worry about it or you can make the re ection of the blades dance on the wall a little longer. Make them dance! Enjoy the present moment and forget about the forgotten moment. LESSONS FROM A TEA BAG I have a Keurig Coffee pot for that quick out-the-door cup of coffee before leaving home. One morning in the rush, I picked up my phone, located my keys, grabbed my pocket knife, and some snacks. I was multi-tasking. I picked up my coffee cup, walked across the kitchen to the sugar bowl and put in a half teaspoon of Splenda. I then walked back to the Keurig, closed the top down and pressed the center blue lit button. The center button only makes about a half of cup of coffee so I dont spill it or splash it on my trucks interior while driving. My coffee cup is under the Keurig, the button is pressed, the coffee maker comes to life; it whines as it prepares the amount of water for my coffee; then gurgled and began to hum as it dispensed the liquid. I looked in my cup as hot water owed into it. Hot water! I look to the right where we keep the little individual coffee containers and there is the individual coffee container I selected, sitting by the Keurig. I forgot to put the coffee container in the Keurig. There I am, Im left with a half cup of hot water with Splenda in it. I mumbled a few words under my breath thinking how stupid that was. I paused for a moment and a smile came over my face! I turned to the cabinet behind me, opened it and pulled down a box of avored tea bags which I rather enjoy. I took a moment, steeped my tea, and squished the rest of the avor from the tea-bag with a spoon nearby. Sipped it and decided tea would be better this morning than coffee anyway! I briskly walked to the truck sipping tea and when I reached in my pocket for my keys and they were nowhere to be found. I turned walked back in the house and found my keys sitting right next to the unpierced coffee container I forgot to put in my Keurig. My brain was not on a coffee break this morning it was on a tea-break! Wouldnt the Queen be proud? The lesson from the tea bag: When life deals you hot water unexpectedly, make tea! It was a momentary lapse in memory. They are becoming humorous moments because they always bring a smile to my face. Ive never regretted the senior moments Ive had, however, I do regret some of the junior moments Ive had. All in all, senior moments are good moments as they make you live in the present and always bring a smile to your face and soul. Its an I cant believe I did that right after you did that moment!T.W. Maurice Langston is executive director of the Wakulla County Senior Center.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Rotary Club of Wakulla honored Panacea restauranteur and businessman Noah Posey with its Distinguished Citizen Award at a banquet at the Wakulla Senior Center on Tuesday, Oct. 15. About 100 people attended the event and heard about Poseys various business interests in Panacea, but especially his work to help the community. He was credited with helping found the Coastal Optimist Club, which has generated thousands of dollars to help local students, helping support the founding of the Navy Junior ROTC program at Wakulla High School. Current Coastal Optimist President Bill Versiga recalled Posey getting him to join the organization in the 1970s. He called Posey a local hero, someone noted for special achievements. Former Sheriff David Harvey said Posey was always thinking outside the box to help people. Wakulla County was founded in 1843, Harvey said, and youll nd a lot of men and women who made a contribution to Wakulla County but youll never hear one with a greater contribution to Wakulla County than Noah Posey. The event was a fundraiser for the local Rotary Club, which supports a number of local projects in Wakulla County, including the dictionary project to distribute a dictionary to every third grader in local schools.PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDEN PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDEN By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netSecond Harvest donated more than 18,000 pounds of food that was distributed at the Wakulla Senior Center on Saturday, Oct. 19.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 Page 15ABy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Oct. 18 There might not have been a shutdown in Tallahassee this week like the one that finally careened to an end in Washington, but it was still a relatively slow period around state government. There were a few bursts of movement. The State Board of Education endorsed Gov. Rick Scotts efforts to begin backing away from some items tied to the controversial Common Core State Standards, while Education Commissioner Pam Stewart held public hearings on the standards themselves. Meanwhile, the Public Service Commission came to the best resolution at this time with Duke Energy Florida a plan that drew a rebuke from the newest soon-to-be member of the Legislature. A BUSH-SCOTT RIFT ON SCHOOLS? For those following the ongoing, wonkish soap opera involving rumors of a rift on education between Scott and former Gov. Jeb Bush, the week provided a few hints into how much truth might be behind those whisperings but no real con rmation of any kind. First came news that Sally Bradshaw, who served as chief of staff under Bush, was leaving the board months before the Dec. 31 end of her term. In a letter, Bradshaw wrote that she was resigning because of family obligations -something that did very little to tamp down speculation that something else was at play. If there was, Scott certainly didnt let on. We are grateful for Sallys service and commitment to ensuring the highest quality in our education system, Scott said. She has worked hard to continue the legacy of high standards that began under the great leadership of Governor Jeb Bush. But another former Bush chief of staff, board member Kathleen Shanahan, was among those wondering whether the state was watering down its commitment to Bushs education reform agenda. Shanahan, who has grown increasingly critical of Scott since it became clear she would not be reappointed to the board, was one of two dissenting votes on a proposal to extend a policy to prevent schools from dropping by more than a letter grade on their state-issued report cards. The safety net, first used on report cards issued after the 2011-12 school year and continued during the current year, will now cover schools through the 2014-15 year. Supporters said the extension will buffer schools through the transition to a new testing regime under the Common Core State Standards. The new tests are expected to kick in during the 2014-15 year. I do think that it is more important on that nal year [of the transition], said Board Chairman Gary Chartrand. Shanahan wasnt convinced. A four-year safety net becomes a bureaucracy, in my opinion, she said. And Patricia Levesque, executive director of Bushs Foundation for Floridas Future, knocked the school-grading move in a statement issued later Tuesday. Florida is in a period of transition to higher standards, and stability and transparency during these times is key, she said. That transparency provides valuable information on the state of student learning -what matters most -even when its not what we want to hear. COMMON CONTROVERSY The board also took aim at some of the implementation of Common Core, voting not to adopt a series of appendices to Common Core, including items like reading lists or suggested tasks for students. Shanahan also questioned that move, saying the appendices could help teachers. I dont know why were disarming the teachers, she said. Bush has been a strong supporter of Common Core, while Scott has taken steps to distance Florida from a multistate test related to the standards, which almost four dozen states have adopted. Scott also ordered Stewart to hold a series of hearings on the subject. Those hearings featured speakers on both sides of the issue -some who called for the end of Common Core, which opponents see as federal intrusion into local schools, and those who promoted the new benchmarks as the way forward for education. Common Core is providing a more rigorous and engaging classroom environment. ... Common Core is pushing the students to think beyond a textbook, said Melissa Castro, an 18-year educator with Hillsborough County, during a hearing in Tampa. But opponents assailed Common Core as potentially wasteful and harmful. Some labeled the changes education without representation. They said the new standards were almost incoherent and dif cult for some students. Lori Baxley, who has two children, spoke emotionally about how her son, a fourth-grader who previously made straight As, was struggling with his math homework. That made her speak up, Baxley said, not any political considerations. The notion this issue is political baf es and frustrates me, she said during the hearing. Just before the last of the hearings, held Thursday in Tallahassee, Stewart said its too early to tell what she might recommend to the State Board of Education regarding Floridas education standards. But she refused to rule out the possibility that Florida would abandon Common Core. Speaking to reporters before the third public meeting to gather public comments on the standards, Stewart brushed off the idea that the state was reversing course on Common Core. But pressed on whether getting rid of Common Core was on the table, Stewart didnt directly answer. Well, certainly, thats input, she said. So, as I said before, were going to take all of the input and were going to make a determination of exactly where we want to head as a state as far as moving forward on rigorous standards for our students. DUKES NUKES One thing that wont be abandoned, at least not yet, is the charges that customers will pay for a scrapped nuclear power plant and another thats been shuttered as part of a deal between the Public Service Commission and Duke Energy Florida. For customers, the deal will include an increase in the residential bill of $8.24, about 7 percent, on a 1,000-kilowatt hour bill starting in January. Under the agreement, approved 4-1 on Thursday, Duke customers will see a freeze on base electric rates maintained through 2018. But they will also fork over an amount translated to $3.45 a month for a residential customer who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity through 2017 to help pay for a scotched plan to build two nuclear reactors in Levy County. The company spent $1.5 billion on the project, so the charges will go to cover previously approved costs and equipment already purchased. Another part of the deal involves Dukes decision to permanently shut down a Crystal River nuclear plant that has been of ine since 2009. The agreement caps the amount Duke can recover at $1.4 billion, of which $295 million will be shifted to stockholders. The deal marked the best resolution at this time, PSC Chairman Ronald Bris said. There is now a fence around the things we can control, said Bris. It provides a certain level of certainty for a particular amount of time and it also takes off the table Levy (County nuclear plant) and it addresses many other challenges that could come about and would have to go through various processes in order to get some resolution. But the deal was already coming in for criticism from Pasco County Democrat Amanda Murphy, who on Tuesday won a House seat in a special election to succeed former GOP Rep. Mike Fasano, also a frequent foil of the utilities. It is outrageous that the Public Service Commission would agree that ratepayers should be held responsible for another $3.2 billion in fees for a power plant that will never be built, Murphy said in a release on Friday, referencing the full cost of the Duke settlement. There is no question that the Florida Legislature must act now and repeal the irresponsible nuclear cost fee. It was one of the rst things Murphy did after defeating Republican Bill Gunter in the Tuesday election. She carried 50.8 percent of the vote to Gunters 49.2 percent. The win by Murphy, 43, gives Democrats 45 seats in the 120member House. That is still far short of the 75 seats held by Republicans, but it represents a pickup for the caucus that has long been the minority in the chamber and recently saw a contentious leadership battle. And it gave the party hope as it heads into the midterm elections. I think that election in Pasco County was really like a litmus test in terms of where Florida is, said Rep. Mark Pafford of West Palm Beach, who is slated to take over as House Democratic leader after the 2014 elections. STORY OF THE WEEK: Democrat Amanda Murphy defeated Republican Bill Gunter in a special election f or a House seat in Pasco County. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Lets give teachers a real raise, not Governor Scotts mysterious vanishing raise. Mike Weston, a parent, teacher and candidate for the school board in Hillsborough County, on what should be done with the money that would go to implementing Common Core. Scotts much-touted pay raise for educators, approved by the Legislature this spring, has been bogged down in negotiations between local school districts and teachers unions.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Common Core Clash; Duke Deal; New House Dem By DAVID WHITEEver tasted a boysenberry? What about cat pee? Can you easily discern Irish breakfast tea from English breakfast tea? And do you ever drink kirsch, the brandy made from sour cherries? If youre anything like me, your answer to all these questions is no. Yet descriptors like these ll the cornucopia of words that critics use to write about wine. While the baffling rhetoric of a typical tasting note might bene t some oenophiles, it intimidates consumers and stands in the way of wine appreciation. Its time to change the way we talk about wine. Consider a recent review of Domaine du Pegaus Chateauneuf-duPape Cuvee Reserve, an iconic wine of the Southern Rhone. In a recent issue of Wine Spectator, critic James Molesworth praised the 2010 release for its well-endowed core of crushed plum, blackberry paste, and braised g and savored brick dust, pepper, warm chestnut leaf, and smoldering charcoal on the nish. One cant fault a novice wine drinker for feeling daunted or scof ng at such descriptors. Remarkably, though, the widespread use of longwinded tasting notes is relatively new. Until the rise of massmarket wine magazines, such notes were essentially shorthand a way for sommeliers, importers, retailers, and collectors to track bottles theyd consumed and communicate with one another. Today, though, theyre ubiquitous. Last year, Wine Spectators critics sampled more than 17,000 wines. Add their reviews to the ones published in Wine Advocate and other publications, and youd have enough blackberry paste and braised g to last a lifetime. Many of these notes nd their way onto shelf talkers at local wine shops. Its no wonder why so many aspiring wine enthusiasts think the path to oenophilia is paved with brick dust and smoldering coal and decide to stick with beer. After all, speaking in the stilted language of a wine critic at dinner would destroy any hope of a pleasant conversation. Communicating effectively about wine doesnt demand an encyclopedic knowledge of rare fruits and bizarre aromas. Indeed, New York Times wine columnist Eric Asimov has found that people who have no idea how one is supposed to talk about wine are far more creative and clear in discussing it than those who have read some books or undergone some training in wine classes. Think about your favorite hamburger joint. When you rave about your go-to burger, do you simply rattle off its composite ingredients and expect your friends to know why it tastes good? Probably not. Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun conveys nothing about why the burger is delicious. Sure, youll talk generally about the burgers makeup and mention anything that makes it unique -e.g., the meat is tender yet slightly charred and topped with Swiss cheese and thickcut, applewood-smoked bacon -but youll quickly transition to a conversation about how it makes you feel. Talking about wine in this fashion makes much more sense. When discussing a white wines general avor pro le, for example, consumers and oenophiles alike only have a few basic questions. Is it light or full-bodied? Do the fruits conjure aromas of citrus, pears and apples, or tropical fruits -and are they tart or ripe? Are the aromatics subtle or intense? Does it smell like butter? Is it oaked? From there, everyone wants to know if the wine tastes good and why. My favorite Sauvignon Blanc isnt enjoyable because it smells like gooseberries and freshcut grass; its enjoyable because its packed with flavor, refreshing, and evocative of summer. Tasting notes certainly have a place. I collect wine and so pay close attention to a handful of critics whose palates are similar to mine. But the omnipresence of such notes sti es clear and creative wine conversations. Lets move on.David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com, which was named Best Overall Wine Blog at the 2013 Wine Blog Awards.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comThey are the perfect icon for Halloween. On the edge between reality and legend, these carnivores silently utter in the darkness. Victorian literature and later Hollywood have portrayed these denizens of the night as malevolent demons focused on human persecution. With their supernatural ability to function in total darkness and attraction for creepy locales, it is no wonder bats are the fodder for myth and superstition. The earliest bat fossils date back to the Eocene epoch 52 million years ago. Bats may have emerged earlier, but the light bone structure required for ight makes their fossilized remains scarce. Today there are over 1,200 bat species worldwide which are living in a variety of climates and settings. Wakulla County is home to 11 species, some common and some relatively rare. Only with the advancements in natural science have these nightly specters gained the appreciation of some for their place in the overall environment. Still, bats remain poorly understood today by the general population. The general lack of knowledge about and appreciation for bats has contributed to declines in their numbers. Some of the more common causes of these declines include destruction of habitat, disturbance of roost sites, and the spread of white nose syndrome which disrupts their navigation system. Bats are the only mammals capable of true ight and are able to execute a variety of maneuvers. The best other mammals can do is to glide through the air like ying squirrels. Their scienti c name, Chiroptera, is derived from Greek and means hand-wing. Bats are sometimes misidentified as flying rodents, but any resemblance is coincidental. The forelimbs of bats have the same con guration as other mammals, but the nger bones of bats are elongated to support membranous wings. The hind limbs are also modi ed to allow bats to hang head-down and by their toes without expending energy. Most bats are highly ef cient at and uniquely adapted to catch night- ying insects. This trait has made the installation of bat houses a popular addition in some communities. These nocturnal predators locate their food and navigate in low-light by uttering ultrasonic cries which return as echoes after bouncing off solid objects. The ears, nose and facial shape aid with this echo-location method when ying in the dark. When bats identify prey, they employ their wings, the wing membrane surrounding their tails, and their mouths to catch insects. This may be in flight, but their echo-location abilities are so acute to be able to pick the bugs off vegetation. Although the bats in Wakulla County are exclusively insect eaters, a few of the species, which occasionally show up in south Florida, feed on fruit, nectar, and pollen. With the exception of a few zoo specimens, the vampire bats, which feed on blood all live in South America. All of Floridas bats rest during daylight hours, taking shelter in a variety of places such as caves, mines, buildings, bridges, culverts, under tree bark, and in the foliage of plants and trees. Many species congregate in nursery colonies during the spring for the care and feeding of baby bats, and then disperse in July and August. The crowding of many bats into a nursery colony during spring and summer raises the temperature of the roost to more than 100 degrees. Because young bats have no fur, they need warm and humid conditions to survive.

The War Eagle JV continued their streak with a 30-15 win over the Madison JV Cowboys in Madison last week. The JV team, comprised of mostly freshman players, with just a handful of sophomores, is extremely young as a whole, said Coach James Vernon. But thats just a testament to how hard they work. They understand the magnitude of play and have their work ethic on point. Vernon said the JV team provides the needed bodies during varsity practice and that the young players see their fair share of getting roughed around by the varsity players. But the older guys appreciate them a lot, said Vernon. They dont stand over them, they help them up and thank them for what they do. Theres a lot of camaraderie and they receive a lot of support from the varsity players. The JV team can extend the winning streak to 30 with a win against Rickards to close the season.

By JOE JACOBSRMS CoachRMS vs. Marianna The Riversprings football team played what RMS coaches called their best game of season Tuesday night, Oct. 8. Although the struggling Bears were matched up against the perennial powerhouse Bullpups, the Bears defense put forth a herculean effort against a Marianna squad that was averaging nearly 30 points a game. Despite the output of the defense and a strong rushing performance from Kody Zanco, the Bears dropped the game 12-6. Kody Zanco led the offense with 125 yards on the ground on 10 carries and 1 touchdown. Hezekiah Gross also provided a powerful addition in the RMS running attack.

Defensive lineman Isiah Lewis, Michael Jenkins, and Devonta Holton also provided solid outings. Both Holton and Jenkins had one fumble recovery. The Bears played their next game at home against Port St. Joe on Tuesday, Oct. 15. RMS vs. Port St. Joe Despite a special teams explosion that included back to back kickoff returns for touchdowns by Kody Zanco, the Riversprings Bears football team came up short, losing 38-30 to Port St. Joes Junior Varsity. Zancos kick returns went for distances of 72 and 99 yards. RMS was led offensively by quarterback Chris Beverly, who went 6 for 8 on the night, with 42 yards passing.

Editors Note: Don Gregg, a Crawfordville resident who currently serves as volunteer assistant coach with the Wakulla High boys soccer program, was inducted into the Anne Arundel County, Md., Sports Hall of Fame on Oct. 16. This story ran in the Capital Gazette News in Annapolis, Md. By BILL WAGNERCapital Gazette NewsNo high school coach sets out to become a Hall of Famer. Sometimes you just find the right situation, make a long-term commitment and things just fall into place. That certainly was the case for Don Gregg and Al Kohlhafer, who was inducted into the Anne Arundel County Sports Hall of Fame last week. Gregg set the standard among boys soccer coaches in this county by compiling a stellar career record of 316-110-16 (.744 winning percentage) over three decades at Severna Park High. Gregg served as head coach from 1974 through 2003 and led the Falcons to 12 county championships, 13 region crowns and two state titles. I never anticipated the program would achieve such great success when I rst took over, Gregg said. I was fortunate to have a lot of great players come through and we were able to develop a winning culture that sort of fed itself. Kohlhafer helped build Anne Arundels reputation as a wrestling hotbed, amassing an impressive 234-125-1 record over threeplus decades at Northeast High. Kohlhafer directed the program from 1969 through 2002 and led the Eagles to a pair of team state championships. Im proud of the way our teams competed every time they took the mat, Kohlhafer said. We were a small school and never had large numbers. Some years, we couldnt ll out a full lineup. But our wrestlers took pride in wearing the Northeast uniform and fought like heck in every match. Gregg is first to admit he benefitted from the Severna Park Green Hornets recreation soccer program, which was led by Dr. Gali Sanchez and Dr. Richard Cheskis among others. Im very thankful for having a great feeder system that consistently provided well-trained players, he said. Soccer was one of three sports that Gregg starred in at Glen Burnie High, from which he graduated in 1961. He was most accomplished in track and field, earning a scholarship to Penn State and setting the school record in the 220-yard dash. Gregg was initially hired at Severna Park to coach soccer and track and field and enjoyed early success in the latter sport by leading the girls team to the outdoor state championship in 1978. However, Gregg chose to focus on soccer and attended dozens of clinics over the years to become a more knowledgeable coach. Severna Park captured its first state championship in 1983 with a team led by the likes of Rob Eckels, Chris Delpi, Rodney Long, Brad Murray, Scott Steele and Ed Wojchiechowski. That team had tremendous chemistry and all the parts worked extremely well as a whole, Gregg said of a squad that compiled a 14-0-2 record. Severna Park did not suffer a single losing season from 1976 through Greggs retirement in 2003. Along the way, Gregg espoused three foundations for success tness, techniques and tactics while emphasizing the importance of restarts and set plays. Before every game I would say the same thing: Win, shutout, nobody hurt. That was always the goal to win without giving up a goal and having anyone get injured, he said. Severna Park garnered its second state championship in 2001 as a club anchored by J.P. Murphy, Sheehan Murphy, Kevin Camponeschi, Simon Groseclose, Scott McGuire, Greg Fenton and Blake Best beat Dulaney 1-0 in the Class 4A nal. Gregg estimates he coached more than 600 players while at Severna Park and there were many great ones along the way. Ray Leone was among the most skilled, enjoying a ne collegiate career at UNC-Charlotte. He is now the head coach of womens soccer at Harvard University. Warren Westcoat was an outstanding goalkeeper who enjoyed a lengthy professional career with Kansas City of the Major Indoor Soccer League. I always looked at it like the coach was the hub of the wheel and the players were the spokes, Gregg said. Truthfully, the success of Severna Park boys soccer is a credit to all the players. I was just there to provide organization and direction. Kohlhafer grew up in southwest Baltimore and came from a wrestling family. Ben Kohlhafer was a top competitor for the powerful Baltimore YMCA team and got his two sons into the sport at an early age. Al Kohlhafer wrestled at Poly for Elmer Bright and at the University of Baltimore under Bill Owings with both men making a major impact. Everything I did as a coach I took from the men who taught me. My coaches were all hardnosed, tough, competitive men. Thats the attitude I wanted to instill in my wrestlers at Northeast, Kohlhafer said. I thought I ran a pretty tough wrestling room. We got after it. Kohlhafer captured a Mason-Dixon Conference championship at 137 pounds while at the University of Baltimore and was enshrined in the schools athletic hall of fame in 2011. He was known as a hands-on teacher of the sport, routinely taking to the mat to personally demonstrate moves and techniques. Northeast has the distinction of being the rst Anne Arundel County school to capture a state championship in wrestling, doing so in 1976 on the strength of such standouts as John Dolch, Walt Puller, Dave Schwartz and the Jarosz brothers Mark and Joe. I will never forget sitting in the coaches room when they were posting the team scores and we were on top. I heard another coach say Northeast High! Where the heck is that? Ive never heard of that. Im really proud of that team because it put Northeast wrestling on the state map and we stayed there for quite a while, Kohlhafer said. Kohlhafer developed 13 individual state champions as well as 53 regional and 47 county champs. The Eagles garnered a second team state crown in 1993 with dominant twin brothres Mike and Marty Kusick leading the way. That team featured two other brother combinations in Alan and Jason Grunder along with Bill and Ron Katzenberger. My underlining philosophy that I told every wrestler was to get into the best shape you possibly can. Because you can beat an awful lot of people just by being in better condition, Kohlhafer said. We also preached attitude, toughness, dedication and commitment because those are also important traits in a sport like wrestling.

Perhaps the only thing stranger than the question and the frequency in which it was asked was that, after a little while, it didnt seem all that strange.Moments after Florida States 51-14 dismantling of the Clemson Tigers, a reporter matter-of-factly asked Rashad Greene, Are the Seminoles the best team in the nation? FSUs junior receiver, usually one of the more reserved members of the team, answered without a moments hesitation. We de nitely are the best team in the country, Greene said. Better than No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon? I dont put us second to no one, he said. Hands down, receiver Kelvin Benjamin said. Based on Saturdays results, FSU certainly made a compelling argument. With a 37-point win at Clemson in which the Seminoles became the rst ever visiting team to score 50 points in Death Valley Florida State produced a quality win that would stand up against the resume of of any college football team in the country. Jameis Winston solidi- ed himself as a bona de Heisman contender with a career performance that included 444 passing yards and four touchdowns. Florida States defense re-validated Jimbo Fishers decision to hire Jeremy Pruitt away from Alabama, putting the breaks on Clemsons high-speed offense and making quarterback Tajh Boyd a fthyear senior with Heisman aspirations of his own look ordinary. We de nitely wanted to just beat them back to the ball, Jernigan said. Thats what our biggest thing was. When youve got a hurry-up offense and youre beating them back to the ball and youre waiting on them to snap the ball, theyre going to be thinking a little bit. By the time it was over, when Death Valley was empty save for the Florida State fans that poured onto the eld after the nal whistle, the Seminoles had made believers out of their opponents. Florida State might be the best team in the nation, Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said. You dont have a lot of room for error against a team like that. And FSU made believers in the polls, too, jumping over unbeaten, fourthranked Ohio State to No. 3 in both the Coaches and Associated Press polls. The rst Bowl Championship Series standings will be released Sunday evening, and the Seminoles are projected to be No. 2 or No. 3 right in the mix with Alabama and Oregon for the hunt for a national title. Perhaps its tting that when FSU was last that high in the BCS standings 10 years ago in this very stadium the Seminoles lost in lopsided fashion to the Clemson Tigers. That game ended any hopes of a national title. This years edition just made them feel real. Winston wouldnt bite when asked to assess FSUs place on the national landscape, but did at least manage to drop the second M.C. Hammer reference of his young career. Were legit, he said. Too legit to quit. Fisher was equally coy, but at least elaborated a bit. Ill let yall decide that, Fisher said. ...(But) I think we have a heck of a team. Im not doubting our team. If we keep playing and taking care of our business, the country will see and well get to where we need to be. By MARTY COHEN We have reached the midpoint of the Florida season and the Gators stand at the crossroads following a hard-fought but ultimately unsatisfying 17-6 defeat to LSU last Saturday afternoon in Tiger Stadium. The loss drops Florida to 4-2 and 3-1 in SEC play, but like the vast majority of contests with LSU, pretty much means little in terms of trying to win the division and get to Atlanta, which is this teams paramount goal. Basically Florida entered the game controlling its own destiny in the SEC East race and following the setback, still controls its fate nothing has changed. Well, a bit has changed due to Missouris victory over a decimated Georgia squad in Athens which leaves the Tigers as the lone undefeated team in the East. However the win was costly as the Tigers lost their ace quarterback James Franklin to a separated shoulder for the rest of the regular season. So while Missouris stock is rising through the roof, especially with consecutive home games against Florida and South Carolina on the horizon, Georgias stock is slipping and South Carolinas fortunes are creeping up after the Gamecocks clubbed Arkansas in Fayetteville. Meanwhile the Gators appear to have hit a plateau, and basically, the season is on the brink at Missouri on Saturday. Florida stood toe-to-toe and battled with LSU on Saturday, but seemed content to jab away and not take any big swings looking for a knockout. The Gators landed a fair amount of body shots, but never took a single poke at the Tigers head, and a gurative knockdown. Florida achieved its ulterior plan, I suppose, and succeeded in shortening the game, not allowing quarterback Zach Mettenberger and his talented receivers to control the pace. But Floridas style leaves no room for even the slightest errors, and the Gators simply make way too many mistakes to upend a high-caliber team like LSU on the road. The Gators clockchewing offensive plan yields plenty of positives, but only if there are a few touchdowns at the end of all the ball-massaging. On Floridas rst possession, the Gators played keep-away, as is their wont, but all 7:27 of possession time yielded was a eld goal. With LSU having success on the ground, the clock raced on as the Gators got only eight possessions, four in each half. Unable to play the field position game to any bene t this season, the Gators were on the wrong side of that battle all afternoon, Five of their eight possessions started inside the their own 25-yard line, and only one began outside the Gator 35. A limited number of possessions coupled with consistently rough eld position do not present a formula for success with the way the Gators operate offensively. For fans clamoring for a bit of down eld passing, or maybe even one vertical shot, the biggest culprit is Floridas inability to run the football with any consistency. The Gators are dead last in the SEC in yards per carry and essentially have the most rushing attempts in the league (Auburn has 275 to Floridas 274 carries), which is not a good combination. The Gators stand 11th in the league in rushing and have just eight touchdowns on the ground only Kentucky has fewer (7). This remains the biggest difference between the 2012 Gators and this years edition. Last season the Gators could truly pound the football, and tailback Mike Gillislee was able to get both the tough yards and break off some big runs in a 1,152-yard campaign. The Gators, now without Matt Jones, have trouble sustaining either this time around, and although Mack Brown runs hard, he doesnt have a shred of bigplay ability. Behind Gillislee the Gators had 89 runs of 10-plus yards in 2012. In the rst half of 2013, the Gators number has fallen to just 30. Freshman Kelvin Taylor showed some nice burst, and also displayed a touch of liability, failing to help in pass protection at critical moments.

We have some cooler weather coming and the sh know it. The migrating sh are making their way south following the bait and the trout and redfish are starting to school up and move in close to shore anticipating the colder weather. That being said, our shing is in one word, Outstanding. I dont know if I have ever seen it this good. There are glass minnows everywhere and the fish are following them. I shed the past eight days with charters and we limited out on reds and trout every day. One day we caught and released 36 reds to 28 inches long and none of them were less than 25 inches. During that time we caught six cobia but all were under 33 inches and we saw one that probably weighed 65 pounds or more. We also caught a bunch of white trout to 18 inches, jack crevalle to 5 pounds, several bonito, a pompano, sheepshead, ounder, blue sh, a pile of Spanish and too many lady sh to count. On Sunday afternoon we were drifting between Shell Point and Live Oak Island and there must have been an acre of Spanish mackerel feeding on glass minnows. You could probably count 20 Spanish coming out of the water at one time. We threw everything in the book at them and only caught one on a small spoon. They were interested in the glass minnows and that was all. The same was true about the bonito. They were schooling everywhere south of Shell Point in about 12 feet of water and about the only thing they were interested in were the glass minnows. We did manage to catch two that about stripped all the line off two reels before stopping. On light tackle you dont slow them down, you wait for them to stop running. Everything was caught on live shrimp under a Cajun Thunder except for the white trout. They were caught on a white Gulp. Capt. David Fife shed all week and caught lots of trout and reds and quite a few big ounder. He caught a lot of his trout using a white Gulp under the Cajun Thunder and his reds were caught on the bottom using mud minnows. I just got off the phone with Capt. Randy Peart and he is currently down at Key West shing for a week with some of his charters. He said the weather was hot and they were catching lot of big mangrove snapper, mutton snapper and had hooked several tarpon. Later on they will go out and look for yellowtail. Randy shed one day last week out of Mashes Sands and limited out on trout and caught numerous other species. He said trout shing has really gotten good around the Econ na and Aucilla and all of his buddies are catching plenty of sh. A neighbor of mine from Tifton was down week before last and caught several trout one day and only two lady- sh the next. They used the Gulp under a cork. I told them they needed shrimp. Last week they came back and limited out trout and reds and caught some nice ounder. This time they used shrimp. Last week I was at Hawks Cay and two days we went fishing. We shed with two different guides and they both caught their bait in the same place and fished the same places. I caught a 15-pound tarpon, which I had always wanted to do. We caught lots of jack and mangrove snapper and that was it. In their defense the Everglades National Park was closed due to the government shutdown so we couldnt sh there and that was where they wanted to go. Pretty place, pretty water, some different species of sh but I think our shing is as good or better. The week before that I was in the Chandeleur Islands off the coast of Mississippi. Eight of us went over and stayed on the Pelican. There are three pontoons tied together with sleeping quarters, eating quarters and employee quarters. It was absolutely gorgeous out there and shing was good but right now ours is just as good. They said it was gonna get better as the cooler weather came. We caught lots of trout and reds on top water, Gulps and gold Johnson Spoons. Look for the bait to move further south with the cooler water and the Spanish, Jacks, blues and cobia will be following them. Our trout and red shing should just get better. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing! www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 Page 5Boutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsStripping a Walther PPKCooler weathers coming shing is outstanding By MARJ LAWThe Walther .380 PPK is a cool little gun for carry and accuracy. Its James Bonds gun. I dont own one, but a man who came to our Shoot Like a Girl Wednesday morning class at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office Range showed me his. The PPK is a semi automatic. The grip feels solid and the gun has a great weight for being so small. It is 1.4 pounds with an empty magazine. Its barrel length is 3.3. The magazine holds six rounds and you can put one in the chamber. They call this a 6 + 1. I tried shooting it with the hammer pulled back. Thats the easy way. If you can cock a hammer, youll have much less trigger pull. So, especially since the PPK belonged to someone else, and I was trying it for the rst time, I cocked the hammer. Yikes! With barely a touch on the trigger, that thing went off. The round hit the target, which is surprising because Id barely time to aim. It was smooth, sweet and easy. On the 1 5 scale, with 1 being the easiest, Ill give trigger pull on the PPK a 1. If its not cocked, yes, its harder, but not much. Ill give an uncocked pull a 2.5. Made of stainless steel, you wont have to worry about the nish wearing off. Of course, this doesnt mean you dont have to clean it, you do! But, speaking of cleaning, this is what I nd most interesting about the PPK. Its the easiest to clean small handgun Ive seen. And it comes apart in quite a different manner than other handguns. Notice the unusual trigger guard. When youre ready to take the gun apart, you pull the front part of the trigger guard down and then you push it gently either left or right. Doesnt matter which. Once the guard is resting on the gun frame, take the slide by its grooves between the thumb and index nger of your dominant hand and pull it back and up toward you until it is clear off the frame. Then, still holding on, release it forward and ease it off the pistol. This action relaxes the tension on the main spring. What do you know, but the slide rides right out of the gun and now you have parts! Just a few parts to clean and thats it. If you are looking for a .380 carry gun with good heft and accuracy, nd someone with a PPK and try it out. You might even offer to clean it after you shoot!Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 24, 2013 thewakullanews.com Due to the re-opening of the federal government, the Auxiliary has been able to resume partial activities. We may not yet engage in activities that result in expenses such as safety patrols or training. However, we are able to hold meetings, host public education classes and participate in public affairs events. The Division Meeting that was cancelled last weekend has been rescheduled for this upcoming weekend. It will take place Saturday, Oct. 26, at The Egg and I restaurant in Panama City. Due to the scheduling change it will be an abbreviated meeting. The planned member training opportunities have been canceled and only a business meeting and elections will take place. A Division Commander and Division Vice Commander will be elected at the meeting. This is an important meeting since the Division elections must occur before we can hold our local Flotilla elections. Our upcoming Flotilla meeting will be the rst Saturday in November and will include elections for our Flotilla Commander and Vice Commander. Check back next week for information on the election outcome for the Division as well as information on the upcoming Flotilla meeting.

I always show off the outstanding Organization for Arti cial Reefs (OAR) charts that document their reefs and the Air Force target range. And that leads to question about the towers. These U.S. Air Force towers are a familiar xture to area shermen and boaters since they were constructed in midto late 1970s. K tower is located roughly 22 miles (29.39.715 by 84.22.388) south of the FSU Marine Lab in 60 feet of water. This tower is one of a constellation of six that the USAF uses for jet- ghter training based out of Eglin Air Force Base near the Panhandles Panama City. Each tower is welded to a 20 foot high large rock lled barge resting on the sea oor. The tower portion sticks up out of the water to an elevation of 100 feet, has navigation lights on at night and has a fog horn on during portions of the day. A wide range of sh and invertebrates occupy the tower and barge, making it an ideal dive during good weather. Do not tie up to the tower please. Anchoring to the barge requires a diver to release the boat before departure, or anchor to the surrounding sand. At 40 feet depth, the top of the K tower barge makes a good introductory dive with many smaller swarming bait sh, lumbering crabs and perched urchins covering the rock ballast. Then drop over the side and down to the sand to continue to explore the crevices created by the forces of weather on the barge/sediment sea oor. There I nd ounder, goliath grouper, shark, oyster crackers, eels and such treasures that has been accidentally dropped by shermen. Once around the barge and most folks are ready to head back to the anchor. FSU scientists won permission recently from Eglin of cials to use the K tower (and others) to mount a variety of both subsurface and topside instruments, which will include a live camera for studying wave conditions. Earlier current meters demonstrated tidal currents in the vicinity of K tower. When fully operational, these newly installed devices will be capable of sending constantly updated measurements on such oceanographic and meteorological phenomena as the speed and direction of wind and currents, turbidity, salinity, water temperature, humidity and wave heights. S tower is a favorite tower of mine located in 106 feet depth, located south of Apalachicola, through the Bob Sikes pass, and out 27 miles (29.17.806 by 84.36.788). While this tower is in deeper water, it serves as a beacon for the Exxon Template, sunk in 1980 in close proximity (to the west) and found by using your fathometer or looking for the sea turtles that hover at the surface. This Template was once used to guide drilling pipe into position on the sea oor from a drilling rig positioned above. It looks like a spiders web of pipes supporting large funnels resting on the sea oor. Now obsolete for the oil patch, it serves as a very productive arti cial reef, attracting a wide assemblage of very desirable sh. I have seen the density of sh on this structure such that the anchor line would knock them out of the way with each passing wave. Its a long run out to the site, but well worth the effort if the weather is calm. With new ocean monitoring technology in place, better sea conditions can be evaluated before making the investment of the trip offshore.Reduce the risk on onboard fires From SEA TOWSpecial to The NewsFires are among the more dangerous, yet preventable, accidents that can occur onboard a boat. For that reason, the nonpro t Sea Tow Foundation, in conjunction with Sea Tow Services International the nations leading marine assistance provider offers boaters these important re prevention tips. Fast action combined with a cool head are critical in ghting boat res, as they can spread rapidly. Following these procedures not only can help boaters prevent a fire, or contain it if one breaks out, but also could help them save lives. The Sea Tow Foundations Boat Fire Prevention Tips: Ensure you have the proper size and type of marine re extinguishers on board. Depending on the size of your boat, you may need more than one fire extinguisher. The U.S. Coast Guard has this information in its Federal Requirements brochure, which is available online at www.uscgboating.org/ fedreqs/default.html. Mount the re extinguishers in readily accessible locations so that you can get to them in an emergency. Inspect your re extinguishers regularly to make sure they are fully charged and have not expired. If you have a xed re ghting system, have it inspected and/ or serviced according to manufacturer recommendations or at least annually. Most boat res are caused by fueling or electrical issues: Before fueling, have all passengers leave the boat and shut off all flames (stoves, ovens, grills, etc.). Close all windows, doors and openings to prevent fumes from entering the boat. While fueling, keep the nozzle in contact with the tank to prevent sparks and do not over ll the tank, so the fuel has room to expand. Wipe up any spills and dispose of the rags. Never smoke while fueling! After fueling, open all the windows, doors and openings and run the exhaust blower for four minutes. Before starting the engine, perform a sniff test of the bilge and engine compartment. If you smell gas, continue to use the blower until all of the fumes are gone. To prevent electrical issues, frequently inspect the electrical connections. Also, inspect any shore power connection lines that you may be using before plugging them into your boat. If any wires are frayed or you see sparks, immediately shut off the power source and get the issue repaired before using it again. Be cautious when using heaters in enclosed spaces, especially when unattended. How to deal with a re if one does break out: Make sure that everyone on your boat is wearing a life jacket in case they have to jump overboard. If possible, position the boat so that the re is downwind and have all passengers move upwind, away from the re NEVER use water on a gasoline, oil, or grease re as it may cause the re to spread. Additionally, water should not be used on electrical res due to risk of electrical shock Get your re extinguisher ready to use. Use the PASS method. Pull pin Aim at the base of the re. Squeeze handle Sweep from side to side. Call for help on your VHF Radio or cell phone. Prepare to abandon ship.

By LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsLooking for beautiful water, quality lodging, and ne food? Youll nd all of that in Fort Walton Beach. But, more than just a beach vacation, we found the added bonus of unexpected wildlife interactions. Our visit to Fort Walton began inauspiciously. A stroll on the beach revealed what appeared to be an injured bird near our hotel. The bird sat unmoving on the beach, allowing us almost close enough to touch him with his feet splayed behind him. Best described as a cross between a pelican and a large duck, this bird with glowing red eyes, and a pointy beak was actually a loon. Upon checking with animal rescue we discovered that the common loon winters along the Gulf Coast, and does not walk well or y from land. Instead, he often remains on the beach and awaits high tide to return him to the sea. We were relieved to discovered him gone the following morning, Not far from the pier, more wildlife viewing was in store. Early mornings brought giant bird tracks criss-crossing the newly vacuumed sand. Several majestic great blue herons, standing nearly four foot tall, stroll idly along the waters edge. Awaiting the arrival of the shermen, as the day wore on light poles, became roosting posts for these opportunists. A small sh tossed back, is a quick snack for these giants. Most days a little patience rewarded us with a sighting of dolphins playing along the beach. Splashing just beyond the sandbar, their heads appeared and disappeared at random. The Sheraton Four Points, our home base, offered a lush landscaped courtyard with plenty of chairs for relaxing. The water splashing on the concrete in the childrens splash fountain created a lovely background melody. With two pools, and several bars and restaurants, we did not have to leave the hotel. Adjacent, the Gulfarium Marine Park gives families the opportunity to see and interact with the wildlife. Daily shows, from sea lions to dolphins and otters are included for your $19.95 entry. For an extra fee you can feed the seals, sea lions, turtles and dolphins. With water ranging from a light teal to emerald green, and sea oats swaying on the dunes, this beach is perfect for relaxing. Driving along Highway 98 we discovered the undeveloped beaches of Henderson Beach State Park. Perfect for a stroll; allow yourself hours for idle wandering along this pristine stretch of sugar sand beach. With endless choices of meals are nearby, we still choose to return to our favorite restaurant in nearby Panama City Beach. The restaurant Fire y, a repeat Golden Spoon winner, is known for their famous she crab soup. An incredibly creamy rich bisque, with succulent chunks of lump crab seasoned with a splash of sherry, and topped with a aky puff pastry, this favorite is hard to pass up. In addition their menu features, amazing dishes like applewood bacon wrapped shrimp, ve spice pan-seared duck, grilled filet mignon, and blue cheese crusted pork chop. Just choosing an entree is challenging. Arrive early for their incredible sunset menu from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. when an entree with a salad or soup is a mere $14.95 the she crab soup at an extra charge. For dining, relaxing, enjoying the wildlife and just plain enjoying the beach, make the trip to Fort Walton Beach for a fun family vacation.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.
