By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netWith a new scal year came a new salary for Wakullas constitutional of cers. With the exception of a few, most elected officials accepted their pay increases, which, with the exception of county commissioners, were a hearty 3.7 percent across the board. Commissioners saw a slightly smaller increase of 3.6. The difference in percentage, although not speci ed quantitatively, is required by state statutes which say that no member of a governing body of a chartered county or a county with a consolidated form of government shall be deemed to be the equivalent of a county commissioner for the purposes of determining the compensation of such member under his or her respective charter. With rising health insurance rates and retirement costs cited as some of the main reasons for increases in budget allocation, the 2013-2014 scal year budget was adopted in at the Sept. 16 board meeting and became effective Oct. 1. The salary for the clerk of court, property appraiser and tax collectors dollar amounts increased from $96,933 to $100,503. The supervisor of elections salary saw an increase from $79,996 to $82,938, while the sheriffs pay jumped from $105,529 to $109,419. The amount offered to county commissioners rose from $30,968 to $32,086. The superintendent of schools saw an increase in the amount of $3,570 from $96,933, making the new salary $100,503. Finally, school board members salaries increased by $945 to a total amount of $26,601. Commissioners Jerry Moore and Ralph Thomas announced at the meeting on Oct. 21 that they would refuse to accept the pay increase, while Chairman Randy Merritt, Commissioners Howard Kessler and Richard Harden have accepted. Commissioner Harden, however, said this week that any increase he receives will be donated to the Senior Centers Meals on Wheels program. The program involves the provision and delivery of meals by volunteers to homebound persons throughout the county. As is indicated in chapter 145 of Florida Statutes, the formula for determining the amount of compensation of county officials is to be determined by the population of that county. Statutes designate groups based on population range. For example, for a county with a population range from 10,000 to 49,000 (like Wakulla), county commissioners receive a base salary of at least $6,000. Additional compensation may be added to the base salary in increments of a designated amount that is assigned to each population group. For the 10,000 49,000 population group, the assigned rate of increase is by 0.075, which according to statutes, can by multiplied by the population amount in excess of the minimum (10,000). In Wakulla, that would mean that the base salary could be increased at a rate of 0.075 multiplied by about 20,000 as the county has a population of roughly 30,000. The same formula by population is designated for the other constitutionals, but with different population ranges, base salary amounts and rates of increase. Further pay increases can be determined according to the budget voted on and adopted by the board. Statutes also specifically allow, notwithstanding the provisions of certain sections, that the of cials may reduce their salary rate on a voluntary basis.

LAST WEEK!Two commissioners turn down salary increase; a third will donate it to Meals on WheelsJoann Daniels will run for school board By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netLongtime Wakulla educator Joann Daniels announced this week that she will be a candidate for the Wakulla County School Board, running for the District 5 seat currently held by longtime School Board member Jerry Evans. Evans has not publicly announced his intentions and whether he will run again. Daniels announced her intent to run in an interview at The Wakulla News on Friday, Oct. 25, and led her paperwork with the county supervisor of elections of ce on Monday. After careful consideration, and consultation with my family, friends, and educational colleagues, Daniels said in a prepared statement, I have come to the conclusion that the best way for me to help ensure that the Wakulla County school system continues to thrive in the future is to bring my unique quali cations to the Wakulla County School Board. Daniels retired from the Wakulla school system in 2009, and was Wakulla Middle School principal at the time, a role she served in for 12 years. Daniels began her career as a science teacher at Wakulla High School, and transitioned to Wakulla Middle School where she said she taught almost every discipline, from science to Spanish. She later became assistant principal at the middle school. During my 30 years as an educator and administrator in our local school system, Daniels said, I have had the privilege of helping to move our schools in the right direction, while at the same time working to overcome various obstacles we faced including unfunded state and federal mandates, resource and funding challenges, KEN FIELDS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Wakulla Wakulla King and King and Queen Queen crowned crowned SPECIAL TO THE NEWSJoann Daniels, retired principal at Wakulla Middle School, is a candidate for school board.Brianna Schubert and James Douin were crowned Homecoming Queen and King at halftime of Friday nights football game.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comRibbon cutting held for automotive program By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIts an idea thats come full circle. That was the message from educators at the ribbon-cutting last week for the automotive repair program for Wakulla High School students, which is operated jointly with Lively Vo-Tech. The program started this school year in a former auto repair facility behind Super-Lube. Parts supplier CarQuest worked with the district to provide tools needed. Superintendent Bobby Pearce said the district is looking at adding other programs, such as welding and HVAC. Two former Superintendents of School, David Miller and Bill Payne, joined Pearce at the ribbon-cutting. Payne was superintendent in the 1970s when vocational programs such auto and small engine repair were offered at Wakulla High School. Miller said those programs began to fade in popularity in the 1980s, and the educational emphasis was put on college preparation. The pendulum has swung back, said Payne. And the other two superintendents agreed with Paynes statement that College is not for everybody. Miller added to that, pointing out the lucrative pay offered to workers in the western oil and gas elds. He said that one of his sons is working out there and making more money than his other two adult kids, both of whom have college degrees. There are currently 48 students in the auto repair program, and instructor Todd ONeal said that when students complete the course, they will be ready for ASE certi cation and can get a job as an entry level mechanic. Or they can continue with a year at Lively and seek certi cation as a master mechanic. Assistant Superintedent for Instruction Beth ODonnell said the district has renewed its focus on career and technical education programs some of which include culinary, carpentry, and business education: digital design, web design, TV production and accounting, as well as the immensely successful medical academy in which students earn a Certi ed Nursing Assistant on graduation.PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDENClockwise from above: The ribbon cutting at the facility, instructor Todd ONeal with students; Superintendent Bobby Pearce with David Miller and Bill Payne. School board clarifies policy on guns on campusBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County School Board voted 4-1 to clarify its weapons policy to include that staff with a concealed weapons permit are not permitted to carry weapons onto school campuses. The lone no vote came from School Board member Greg Thomas, who said at the meeting on Monday, Oct. 21, that the issue gave him heartburn. Thomas said he had mixed feelings on the issue. He also felt the policy wasnt well written and said it could include pocket knives carried by janitorial staff. Other school board members and Superintendent Bobby Pearce all indicated their support for the policy. No district allows weapons on school campus, Pearce said. He also expressed concern about staff that may have weapons in their vehicles in the parking lot. He noted that he recently attended Shadevilles Fall Festival and intended to go dove hunting afterwards, but parked off campus so that he wouldnt violate the policy by having a shotgun in his vehicle. School Board member Jerry Evans commented that he felt The risk outweighs the benefit of weapons on a school campus. Two school board members, Chairman Ray Gray, and member Melisa Taylor both remarked that they have guns and have to always remember to leave the weapons at home when going to a school.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County Refuge House, in conjunction with the Domestic and Sexual Violence Task Force, hosted guest speaker Tammy Slay at its annual Domestic Violence Awareness luncheon on Wednesday, Oct. 23. Slay, the Victim Advocate with the State Attorneys Of ce shared her experience with domestic violence from start to nish detailing how, at age 16, she married her knight in shining armor and it wasnt until she got pregnant with their rst child that the abuse began. You might be thinking why did I stay? Slay asked. A lot of times we get caught up in saying to ourselves, Hell change... Hes sorry... He loves me... Slay said she realizes now that marrying so young may not have been the best decision, but that at the time even if she had realized it, her upbringing encouraged her not to leave. I was raised in a time and place where divorce didnt really feel like an option, she said. I was raised to stay. I thought it was the right thing to do. She referenced culture now and how, yes, divorce is not ideal, but in some cases it may be a blessing in disguise that its not so heavily looked down upon for those who are in a position like she experienced. Slay said her kids played a big role in, at rst, her decision to stay and then later on, her ght to leave. It started out as being about her kids having a father before it turned into the reality that her kids could be in grave danger. I left six times, she said. The sixth time I went back because my 12-year-old daughter said that, Daddys changed. Hes in church. What she came to nd out, she said, was that he was really only playing church. Looking back, I know that God had this in His plan, she said. Because what happened was that he was playing church and I actually got saved. Slay said that her exhusband declared that he wanted to be a preacher and began going to school. Even then, she said. Not every night, but he would come home and Id get beaten up. Fortunately, Slay said, she worked at an of ce located right across the street from the police department. When she went into work one day with a black eye, her co-workers were unwilling to sit by and had the chief of police come to the of ce to talk to her. He gave her the number of a shelter. Ill never forget that conversation on the phone when I called, Slay said. I talked to the lady on the other side of the phone, we went over a safety plan and then she asked me, OK, now when are you coming in? Slay said she was only expecting to receive a shoulder to cry on or an ear to talk into but that question changed her life. She said she answered that she wasnt going to come in, to which the voice said, Im giving you two weeks and then were going to come in and take your kids. That stopped me in tracks, she said. My kids are my world. So, she said, she began taking clothes and a few belongings to work collecting them there until she could leave. I left with three garbage bags of clothes and three kids in tow, Slay said. Up until that point, since I had come from a broken home, I thought I was doing the right thing for my kids by staying. But, she said, leaving was the best thing she ever could have done. At one point, Slay said that she had even signed her kids over to the state on paper, in case her exhusband came and took the kids because of the law at the time. That way they could arrest him in the event that happened. Today, her kids are in their 30s and successful not perfect, she said, but they made something of themselves. It just goes to show that with God on your side you can overcome anything, she said. That goes for more than just escaping abuse, she said. That goes for drugs, addiction, nancial problems anything. Seven years after she left her ex-husband, Slay said that it was put in her heart to call him and tell him she forgave him. When I called and said that I forgave him, his reply was, For what? she said. Its important to know, said Slay, that abuse and the inclination to stay doesnt always start in the home and isnt always a pattern. My father put stability in my life. I was not taught that abuse was OK and he never laid a hand on me, she said. Another common stereotype is that the abuser is a substance abuser. However, that was also not the case. He didnt drink or use drugs, Slay said. It was just meanness. Slay stressed that there are more people out there today that can help. Leaving wasnt easy, she said. Every step of the way I was a nervous wreck and scared to death, but by the grace of God I made it through. Statistics were read at the luncheon provided by the sheriffs of ce which said that the number of calls received relating to domestic violence since the year 2008 have ranged from about 50 to 80 each year and that many more are not even reported. Wakulla is a zero-tolerance county for domestic violence and Oct. 2013 has been proclaimed Domestic Violence Awareness Month by the county.Survivor of domestic violence shares her story AMANDA MAYORTammy Slay speaks at the Domestic Violence Awareness luncheon. Special to The NewsA Crawfordville man wanted in connection with a Wakulla County convenience store burglary has been arrested in Leon County, according to Sheriff Charlie Creel Dustin Keith Swain, 28, was arrested by the Leon County Sheriffs Office on an unrelated narcotics charge and he remains in the Leon County Jail. A hold has been placed on Swain for the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce. A Wakulla County arrest warrant was issued for Swain last week in connection with the Tuesday, Oct. 22 business burglary at Glendas Country Store in Crawfordville. A forced entry was discovered at the store and detectives determined that a change box, cigarettes and Florida Lottery tickets were stolen in the burglary. A Special Agent for the Lottery Department contacted detectives with information about stolen Lottery tickets being cashed in Leon County. One of two subjects cashing the Lottery tickets in Leon was identi ed by law enforcement as Dustin K. Swain. On Oct. 23, a search warrant was served at Swains home and evidence was collected that allegedly connected Swain to the crime. Swain also allegedly attempted to sell a carton of cigarettes to a Tallahassee business. Swain awaits charges of burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief in Wakulla County. The value of the stolen items from the store is estimated at $602 and damage to the store is estimated at $300.Wakulla burglary suspect caught in Leon Dustin Keith Swain NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGThe Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners will hold a Public Hearing on November 18, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. in the Commission Chambers, 29 Arran Rd., Crawfordville, FL 32327 to Consider: OCTOBER 31, 2013 A copy of this ordinance shall be available for inspection by the public at 3093 Crawfordville Highway, Crawfordville, FL 32327.

Elena Myhre Fashion Show Chair Editor, The News: Governor Scott has deliberately proceeded to dismantle the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to turn it into an expediter of permits for those who wish to pro t from the rape of what remains of natural Florida. Nothing would be more irresponsible with regard to the future of the well being of Wakulla County than to cede authority to the state. Wakulla Countys wetlands feed the entire ecosystem, filter the water, and add value to adjacent property. The protection of those wetlands is a responsibility that the State DEP is not capable of carrying out. The protection of those wetlands must remain under local control. James A Crozier Crawfordville Editor, The News: Tonight I was shopping with my family. A young couple, Emily and John, introduced themselves to me and let me know they did not agree with my position on the wetlands. They told me they were approached by a member of the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance who asked them to sign a petition. They decided to think about it rst, but planned to sign after they nished their shopping. They asked me how I could be opposed to signing the petition. Initially, they were uncertain about the whole wetlands issue, but after talking to the person gathering signatures, the choice seemed so obvious. I was surprised to hear this so I asked them if they would help me understand what made them come to this conclusion. They replied, the petition questions. The gentleman asked us Do you think wetlands should be protected? Do you think you should have the right to vote? Did you know our commissioners are eliminating wetlands protection and they dont want you to have the right to vote? Will you sign a petition to protect your right to vote? I asked them to please tell me more. They said, there is nothing else to tell. Thats all the gentleman asked us. We should have the right to vote. I responded, Im surprised he didnt ask you the rest of the questions to make sure you understand the entire issue. Do you mind if I ask you a few more questions? They agreed. I asked Do you own your own property? Do you think you have the right to decide how you use your property? Do you think a group of citizens should have control over your property? Did you know the wetlands petition is not about government against the people, but is about a group of citizens against the people? Did you know, the people pushing this petition live in or near wetlands? Did you know they dont want you to have what they have? Did you know they dont think you are responsible enough to make decisions for yourself? Did you know our commissioners are trying to return property rights to the property owners? If the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance can take away private property rights on this issue, do you think they will stop there? Will you stand up against the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance and let them know they cannot take away your property rights? They looked at each other, and said, Wow! This issue is not as simple as we thought it was. We never thought about that. They thanked me for taking the time to talk to them. As they walked away, they handed me a piece of paper, folded in half. I opened it, and recognized it as an unsigned petition. I turned to my wife and told her, they get it! They are not willing to sign away their rights. I have been replaying that conversation through my mind all night. Ive given a lot of thought to the questions they heard, when they were asked to sign the petition. Ive come to this conclusion its a simple message. It de nes a problem. It establishes politicians as the cause of the problem. It empowers people to have the nal decision. Who wouldnt sign a petition that is presented in this manner? This encounter made me realize something. Good people are signing t his petition because it seems like the right thing to do. Good people should be given the entire picture. Of course they want to protect the wetlands, but what good will that be, if they lose their freedom in the process? Ralph Thomas County Commissioner District 1 Editor, The News: On Oct. 12th we had our fourth annual Smoke and Fire Fire ghters Charity Barbecue contest and it was successful thanks to the great support we got from the citizens. This year there were 14 teams representing re and law enforcement in our area, from Bay County to Taylor County. We had a lot of donors and sponsors and will be running an ad with all of the names so I will not list them all here. I do have to thank a few that stand out: The Tallahassee Moose Lodge, they heard that we were supporting a childrens burn camp and a charity that supported injured soldiers and they contacted us to be a major sponsor. Wakulla County Fire Rescue, they repeatedly sat the aerial ladder up and hung our banner over U.S. Hwy. 319. People associate that banner with a good day at Hudson Park eating great barbecue. WCFR also had equipment on display when they were not busy on calls. Air Methods, the company that furnishes medical helicopters for our area had a helicopter for kids and adults to look at. This company furnishes lifesaving medical transportation and also supports the community. The crew had to y off to a call without their lunch but that is the nature of their work. Shands Hospital also had a helicopter stop in. Imagine that, two helicopters in Hudson Park in one day. We had a bounce house for the kids furnished by MoonWalkers. Every year our side dishes of slaw and beans are prepared by the Poseys Up the Creek restaurant in Panacea. They prepared about 35 gallons of slaw and 30 gallons of beans. The Posey family does a lot of work to help ours and other charities. Noah Posey was honored as citizen of the year by the Rotary Club and he deserved it. Macks Meats sells us all of our great meat at his cost and asks his suppliers to give us a special price. We get top quality meats from Macks and that means top quality barbecue for the citizens that come support us. We have two well read publications in our county and both support us every year. William Snowden at the Wakulla News has been a judge for three years but sickness kept him away this year. Guinn Haskins with the Wakulla Area Times has judged for us every year. The Rev. Jeff McFalls and Father Ed Jones have both judged for four years. We have had the county Sheriff every year and Charlie Creel continued the tradition. Other judges were Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond; Tax Collector Cheryll Olah; and County Commissioner Ralph Thomas. State Rep. Halsey Beshears was committed to us but had serious sickness in the family and our own Jo Ann Palmer accepted the job of judging in Halseys place. It turned out Halsey was able to attend and Jo Ann shared the duties with him. Our last judge was Ed Cleveland, a retired re chief from Manatee County and a super nice guy. We served about 800 meals and hope to give about $3,000 to each charity. The Leon County Sheriffs Of ce team led by Bo Blanton took the grand prize. It was a reality check for us to see the grand prize title leave our county. It was a great day for the burned children and for the injured soldiers we work to help. It was also a great day to eat barbecue. Thank you for all of the support shown to our event. Bill Russell Fire Chief Ochlockonee Bay VFD Editor, The News: In 1973 I wrote a manuscript that I am now calling the Panacea Prophecy which I bound and put away on the shelf. There it sat for 40 years until I rediscovered it, exactly when the latest wetlands controversy exploded a few months ago. Nothing, and I mean nothing, has changed in the past 40 years. Word for word, the arguments are exactly the same. The prophesies that the old shermen made have all come true: the demise of commercial shing industry, the degradation of water quality, the population explosion and the lessening of salt and fresh water marshlands and coastal forests. I hope that by Christmas I will have a limited edition to help the cadre of volunteers get the required 5,000-plus signatures from Wakulla County registered voters to hold a referendum to repeal Wakulla Countys repeal of the wetlands ordinance. The following is a selection from the book: Anne and I were sitting on the dock, after being soundly defeated in getting the Ochlockonee Bay turned into an Aquatic Preserve by the Wakulla County Commission and the developers. You know, I said, maybe were a minority in Wakulla County. And maybe were not. I wonder what would happen if it could be put to a vote. Take last night for example, all those people getting up and speaking out against the Aquatic Preserve were either land owners, attorneys, or contractors who had something to gain directly by destroying the land. But what about the other guy, the one who doesnt have a stake in lling the marshes. Do you think he wants to see the swamps mutilated? He probably thinks swamps are nasty, smelly places full of mosquitoes and the like, Anne said... That same upright citizen who blithers about clean environment ... will be the rst to appear before the city commission and demand that the city eliminate that unsightly, smelly mosquito-ridden swamp at the edge of town and turn it into a playground. I knew what Anne was saying was true... When people think of swamps, images are conjured up of deep holes and dark waters among scraggly ominous vegetation, lled with evil creatures like crocodiles, snakes and God know what else. In Wakulla County I could speak about the value of the marshlands until I was blue in the face, and how they act as lters, absorbing salts and pollutants while they stabilizes the shoreline and prevent erosion. But who would listen? The answer would scream the hallowed PRIVATE PROPERTY. To hell with private property, I declared angrily. I own this land, and this dock, so what? My deeds and property notes are not death certi cates. I do not respect these stinking pieces of paper that are so precious to lawyers and bankers. All they do is give you a sense of self importance and self-righteousness... We could live on the land, live with it, but we shouldnt destroy it... Stand by, the book is waiting.

Compiled by Lynda Kinsey rapid student population expansion, etc. We have had success in addressing these obstacles in the past and our school system must be ready to face similar issues in the future, she said. It is extremely important that our members of the school board not only understand these issues, but have the experience and proven track record of addressing these challenges. With my background and experience in education here in Wakulla, I feel that I am uniquely quali- ed to serve as a school board member, she said. Daniels family is also involved in education: her husband Lloyd Daniels is a retired history teacher but is still teaching American history class for Tallahassee Community College students at Wakulla High. Of her four children, son James Daniels is a teacher at Riversprings Middle School; her daughter Karen Taylor is a local certi ed public accountant whose husband Bill is a teacher at Riversprings; her other children are Lloyd III and Josie. Daniels graduated from Florida State in 1973 with a Bachelors degree, and began teaching in 1979. In 1989, she earned her Masters in Educational Leadership from FSU. During my career, Daniels said, I was fortunate to build partnerships with dedicated educators, terri c students, committed parents, and devoted community members, all of whom fully understand the value of a top notch school system. I truly believe that the strength of our school system lies in our ability to work as a team for the good of our children. We must look ahead, Daniels said, and be proactive in our approach to education, all the while being fully prepared to overcome the obstacles we will continue to face. An economically sound community is dependent on a strong and successful educational system, she said. We must provide tomorrows community workforce with the quality education they need not only to succeed, but to excel. We have one of the best school systems, if not the best, in Florida, Daniels said. I am very proud to have been a part of our school system. Our school system enjoys a reputation for excellence, she said. I would like to see that this tradition continues for the generations of Wakulla County students to come. I believe that our strength lies in our ability to work as a team for the good of our children. With the commitment, support and involvement of parents, teachers, administrators and community members we can insure that our schools are equipped to face challenges and provide the best in educational opportunities. As your representative on the school board, I will keep steering the Wakulla County School System towards success. I hope you will join me, in my quest to keep us the best, she said.

From Page 1AJoann Daniels will run for school board Hearing set on net caseBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netCircuit Judge Jackie Fulford set a hearing on Wednesday morning, Oct. 30, to hear motions from shermen on lifting the automatic stay on her ruling, and to certify the case as one of great public importance to try to get to the Florida Supreme Court. Judge Fulford released a ruling last week saying enforcement of the constitutional amendment that limited net shing the so-called net ban had created a legal absurdity with small mesh nets allowed by the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission violating the amendments prohibition against gill nets and its stated purpose to protect marine life from over shing and waste. Fishermen contend the small mesh nets that the FWC requires them to use lead to a majority of juvenile sh being netted. The judge also found that mullet fishermen appear to have been discrimated against in rules promulgated by the FWC. Her judgment ordered that the net ban and FWC agency rules on mullet nets no longer be enforced. Hours after Fulfords ruling, the FWC filed a notice of appeal with the First District Court of Appeal which had the effect of staying the judges order. Ron Mowrey, attorney for the Wakulla Fishermens Association and fishermen Ronald Fred Crum, Jonas Porter and Keith Ward, led a motion with Fulford the day after FWCs appeal asking the court to lift the automatic stay. Mowreys motion contends that, if the judges order is stayed, the FWC may continue unfairly prosecuting against commercial mullet shermen while unlawfully promulgating rules that carve out exceptions to a constitutional amendment. A couple of days later, on Friday, Oct. 25, Mowrey led a motion asking the judge to certify that the issues in the case are a matter of great public importance in an effort to bypass the appeal court and go directly to the Florida Supreme Court. CCA Florida, the sport shing group which supported the constituional amendment in 1994, called the judges ruling a legal absurdity. The group contends that mullet landings in Wakulla, Franklin, Jefferson, and Dixie Counties were 579,527 pounds in 2010 and 493,614 pounds in 2011. Total statewide landings of mullet in 2011 were 12.5 million pounds.Judge to hear motions on lifting stay Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford 000FYTK Car loans that can save hundreds are catching on.

Page 6A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGNov. 1 is All Saints Day on the Christian calendar. Many churches observe this special day on the rst Sunday of November by remembering their members who have died over the past year. Other churches do not observe it. Halloween and All Saints Day have a connection, however confused. Halloween is hallowed eve the night before All Hollows Day or All Saints Day. Yet the original end-of-October activities were not associated with Christianity. All Saints Day grew out of the practice of the early Church of remembering the martyrs who had been killed because they were Christians. In the late 300s, a day was set aside for observance of All Saints. In the 400s this date was often on the Sunday after Pentecost. Later, in the 700s, this observance became connected with Nov. 1. Nov. 2 was considered All Souls Day to recognize the faithful who had died but who did not have the distinctive title of Saint. During the Protestant Reformation, many had become uncomfortable with the way Saints were revered, though some denominations and churches maintained the celebration of All Saints Day, keeping the focus of worship toward God. Sainthood is really not about how good someone was but about the grace of God that makes us perfect through Jesus Christ who died for our sins that we may have eternal life. Are we not all a mix of saint and sinner, possessing a combination of both good and sinful? Christians can observe All Saints Day as a time to honor the lives of those who have died in light of Christs Resurrection. Because of belief in a risen Lord, we can celebrate that our loved ones are not dead, but share in that Resurrection and that one day, we, too, may share in that reunion with our loved ones in that Resurrection!The Rev.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR Thumbs up, thumbs down, now everybody turn aroundBy JAMES L. SNYDERFlying in an airplane is not my preferred style of transportation. However, ying without an airplane is quite disastrous, if you know what I mean! I am not quite sure the Wright brothers would be too happy with some of the things passing as an airplane these days. It seems to me that psychotic midgets have designed modern day airplanes. Nothing in an airplane is designed for the normal person, and I might as well say it, I consider myself normal. The one plane I took from Detroit to Dayton, Ohio, was about as small as I have ever been on. Walking down the aisle, I could not even stand up but had to bend over in order to walk down the aisle. I heard a noise behind me that startled me and I stood up only to dash my head against the ceiling. That was not the worst headache of my ight. One of these days, I would like to meet the person who designed the seats in those planes. I truly do not understand what a seatbelt is for with individuals like me. I can barely squeeze myself into that seat and then it takes me about 15 minutes to extract myself from the seat. I suppose a seatbelt is for the comfort of the pilot who believes that somehow I will not bounce out of my seat while he is ying. I could not bounce out if my life depended upon it. My seat was so tight and I t so snugly in it that when I sneezed it felt like I did some damage to my inner organs. Somewhere in the Constitution there has to be something to the effect that an individual has the right to sneeze without hurting himself. What I want to know is why do I always have to sneeze when I am in certain situations like this? Then, comes the time when you need to go to the bathroom. The ight attendant will bring you all the free beverages you can consume. They know, and I guess they are snickering behind our back, that everybody is going to have to go to the bathroom at the same time. Coordinating the bathroom run is one of the trying exploits of ying the friendly skies. For one, by the time I realize I have to go to the bathroom there is a line for the bathroom. Fortunately, but the time I extradite myself from my seat the line has dwindled dramatically. Then again, I have to go to the bathroom so bad I am dancing up the aisle to the bathroom to the great applause of the people sitting there. Once I fasten myself into the seat, I try to get comfortable enough to do a little reading. Since I am sitting in the aisle seat, everybody is bumping into me as they go up and down the aisle. Now that I am situated so that I cannot move, they come again with beverages. Why is it I forget there is a link between drinking a beverage and going to the bathroom? I know there is a link but when I am up in the air so high my tiny little grey cells are working in slow motion. So why take a free beverage? Well, it is free! I am at the age in my development where going to the bathroom is a frequent activity, even when not drinking any beverages. When consuming a beverage, this activity kicks into high gear. Once again, I need to extricate myself from my seat and nd my way to the bathroom. I am not quite sure about this, but I believe in mid air the airplane pilot switches the bathroom from the front to the rear. I am dancing up the aisle, which I believe is in the direction of the bathroom, only to discover I am going in the wrong direction. A few of the people in the seats are smiling at me and one person gives me a thumbs-up as I turn around and dance in the direction of the actual bathroom facility. With a forced grin, I give a thumbs-up back at him and proceed in the direction of the bathroom. It is at this point that I run into a line. Wouldnt you know it; the line is for the bathroom? This is a real thumbsdown for me. It is at this point that I really wish I was not a gentleman. After all, a gentleman has to let the ladies go rst. I think if some of these ladies would know the actual situation, they would insist I go rst and I certainly would give them a wonderful thumbs-up. As I was standing in line, a verse of Scripture popped into my head. And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left (Isaiah 30:21 KJV). Many things in life have us going in circles to which there is no end. God, however, puts us on the straight and narrow path that ends with Jesus Christ.Rev. James L.

Guestbook at http://www.forbesfuneralhome.net.Robert D. Green Ruth Elizabeth Brown Sanders Clair Harrell Henderson Lillian Eva HansonCause of death pending BEREAVEMENT COLUMN By TRACY RENEE LEEAt times, a death certificate may be issued with the cause of death listed as pending. This generally happens when an investigation is taking place and the cause of death is in question. Death certi cates are necessary for legal, financial and real estate purposes. Most applications do not require cause of death, the exception to this rule is, of course, insurance. If your insurance policy has an accidental death rider, you will want to le for an amended death certi cate after cause of death has been determined. Filing for an amended death certi cate is easily accomplished. In most cases, you need only contact your local registrar, ll out the necessary forms, pay the required fees, and amended death certificates will be issued. The dif culties associated with cause of death pending are the unresolved questions of the family. Parents, children, and spouses nd it dif cult to understand and recover when the cause of death is pending. Acceptance is the last stage of Dr. Kubler-Ross ve stages of grief. For most people, the death of a loved one is the ultimate trauma experienced in life. If the cause of death is pending, the family may nd it dif- cult to begin the work of acceptance. If acceptance is unobtainable, complicated grief may become a reality. Complicated grief is the prolonged suffering of a survivor. Complicated grief may affect the functionality of the survivor. Generally, the cause of death will be revised once the investigation has been completed. There are however certain circumstances where cause of death may not be determinable. In such a case, family and close friends may find it very difficult to recover. If you are suffering this type of loss, you may nd it helpful to join a support group or to seek out a counselor. Your funeral director should be able to help you nd various organizations that focus on helping the bereaved through such extreme circumstances. Your road to recovery may be slow and arduous. You may think there is no hope. You may nd yourself lled with despair. My dear friend, do not allow yourself to continue on without intervention. There are people and organizations willing and waiting to help you. Do not do this alone. It is too dif cult. Allow those around you who love and care for you, to lend a helping hand. If you do so, you will realize that there is hope and love abounding. Family and friends love and care for you. Allow them the opportunity to help. My name is Tracy Renee Lee. I am a funeral director, author, and freelance writer. It is my lifes work to comfort the bereaved and help them live on.

At the Administration for Children and Families, George championed the cause of early childhood development among lowincome families, worked to expand the use of trauma informed care and practices in the foster care system, pushed for better prescribing and monitoring practices within the foster care system for the use of psychotropic medications, and led HHSs efforts in the ght against human traf cking, focusing on the enhancement of survivor services.

Shadeville Celebrates 30th Fall FestivalSpecial to The NewsOctober Teachers of the Month are Medart Elementary Schools Mary Green and Wakulla Middle Schools Alena Crawford are recognized with Crawfordville Elementary School paraprofessional Leslie Kelly. Superintendent Bobby Pearce and the Wakulla County School Board applaud the passion and enthusiasm each of these individuals, from novice to seasoned veterans, who give to the children of Wakulla County The energy they contribute on behalf of the students, schools, the profession of education and communities they serve is an inspiration. Medart Elementary selected Mary Jane Elizabeth Green to represent the District as the October Teacher of the Month. Mrs. Green started her career in January 1968, 45 years ago, as a rst grade teacher in Donalsonville, GA. She has taught primary education at Shadeville, Crawfordville and Medart. After teaching in Georgia, Green returned to Wakulla County to care for her aging parents. Green is a product of the Wakulla County schools. She received her bachelor and masters degrees from Florida A&M University. When asked, she will explain, I was born to teach. I realized I wanted to become a teacher after working with young children in my Sunday school class. Every year, I am reassured when I see the growth and progress that students make in just nine months. In her 45 years of teaching, Green probably never missed more than a total of 45 days of work. She adds, Thank you God for health, strength, a desire to teach, and thank you for Medart. Green is a member of the school advisory council, habitat for humanity, and the Church of Christ. Principal Sharon Kemp notes, With her many years of experience, she is well respected and admired by our faculty, parents and students. Her goal is to challenge each student to reach their potential while instilling in them the job of learning. She blesses us with her sincere smile and calm manner. We love and appreciate Mary Green. Alena Crawford, October Teacher of the Month, has been teaching reading to middle school students at Wakulla Middle School since August 2010. Prior to teaching at Wakulla Middle School, Crawford taught fourth grade inclusion class at Suncoast Elementary School. Crawford shares, I made the switch from elementary to middle school when I moved back so that I could specialize in the teaching of reading. Crawford attended Woodville Elementary School, Wakulla Middle School and Wakulla High School. She received her AA degree from North Florida Community College, her BA in Elementary Education at Saint Leo University and her MA in Reading Education from University of South Florida. A product of the Wakulla Schools, Crawford was determined to return home so that her sons would also be raised in Wakulla County.

In addition to working with amazing faculty and staff members, I get the opportunity to teach great students. WMS Principal Mike Barwick notes, Crawford is successful because of her passion to teach reading. She is truly among the elite teachers in this district. Were glad she chose Wakulla Middle School. Crawfordville Elementary School has selected paraprofessional Leslie Kelly as the October Employee of the Month. After moving to Wakulla County, because of the wonderful school system, Kelly states, I decided I wanted to work for the school system. I began as a volunteer and was hired in 2004. Originally from Tallahassee, Kelly attended Riley Elementary, Grif n Middle and Godby High Schools. Kelly touts the beginning of the school year as one of her most enjoyable times. She adds, Meeting the new students and their parents and then seeing former students and how they have changed and grown over the summer is always a pleasure. It is the lessons she learns from the students and shares that contributes to her shining star status. A student from her rst year at Crawfordville, later moved away and perished in a house re. However, Cody demonstrated every day through his infectious personality, the importance of speaking to people and being kind. Kelly adds, I try to pay it forward by speaking to every child, giving hugs when needed and making sure I tell them to have a great day. No matter how young or old, we can learn something from each other. Crawfordville Elementary School Principal Angie Walker notes Leslie Kellys outstanding characteristics. Walker shares, Leslie is the type of person every administrator, boss or agency hopes to have. She comes in early, she stays late and she does things without being asked. She makes the students laugh as well as the adults. She never asks for anything extra and doesnt want recognition for her contributions. Mrs. Kelly is well respected and liked by all. She is a leader and loyal member of the Cougar team. We are fortunate to have her and I hope to never lose her. Oct.

The $14,700 project improves law enforcement training conditions for local, state and federal law of cers who train at the facility, according to Lt. Ronald Mitchell, who supervises the Range. Beacon Target Turner of Harvard, Ill., was the low bidder and completed the project with the assistance of the WCSO Range staff, WCSO maintenance crew members Robert Cochran and Matt Slavens and inmate labor. Company owner, designer and engineer Gregg Rang was at the range on Friday, Oct. 25 as Sheriff Charlie Creel, Undersheriff Trey Morrison and members of the WCSO staff accepted the new targets and presented the check to Rang. In addition, the sheriffs of ce acquired portable turning targets that can be moved inside a building or other location for more specialized training. Lt. Mitchell said the turning targets give law enforcement of cers an opportunity to train to safely determine whether a sudden appearance of a human being constitutes a threat or not. The training targets will be used to include all variety of rearms. Mitchell said he was ecstatic about the new targets which replace outdated technology that was installed in 1993 as used equipment. The new equipment has the ability to allow training of cers to manipulate all or some of the targets at the same time to provide more effective training. Attending the check presentation with Sheriff Creel were Lt. Mitchell, WCSO Maintenance Director Cochran, Undersheriff Morrison, Rang of Beacon Target, Barry Glover, who assisted the county acquire the original target system in the 1990s, and Sgt. Dale Evans of the training staff. This is a great addition to the WCSO Range, said Sheriff Creel. I know that other agencies are excited about the opportunity to train using our new technology.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 Page 15ABy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Oct. 25 Peer pressure from a fellow lawyer wont be enough to get Attorney General Pam Bondi to go along with an effort to make marijuana legal in Florida for medicinal purposes. Bondi, who earlier in the week drew a Democratic opponent as she runs for a second term, came out Thursday against a ballot initiative aiming to give sick people access to cannabis. It was a decision that could have political as well as policy implications. Meanwhile, state prison of- cials tried to gure out how two convicts managed to escape from the system with forged documents, and how the state could prevent it from happening again. PAMELA JO VS. MARY JANE Its approaching high noon for those who would like to keep a ballot initiative aiming at legalizing medical marijuana from getting to voters. Or perhaps from attracting voters who might be a bit more liberal in their social views -and more likely to check the boxes next to the names of Democratic nominees while joining in reefer madness at the polls. The first strike from those opposed to the measure came from Bondi, who wrote in a ling before the Supreme Court that the ballot summary written by United for Care: People United for Medical Marijuana wrongly suggests that only people with debilitating diseases could get the leafy green substance. Bondi is required to seek an advisory opinion from the high court once an initiative reaches a certain number of signatures. But if the amendment passed, Florida law would allow marijuana in limitless situations, she wrote in the Thursday ling. Any physician could approve marijuana for seemingly any reason to seemingly any person (of any age) -including those without any debilitating disease. So long as a physician held the opinion that the drug use would likely outweigh the risks, Florida would be powerless to stop it. And while it didnt necessarily seem like a joint effort, the GOP-leaning Florida Chamber of Commerce was quick to support Bondis filing in a statement Thursday. Our Constitution is a foundational document meant to provide for our basic rights and organization of government, said David Hart, the chambers executive vice president. It should be protected and not sold to special interests trying to purchase a place in it for their ideas to be forced onto the rest of us. Of course, the ght against grass also brings the chamber into con ict with one of its old foils. The most prominent supporter of the initiative has been John Morgan, the television commercial star and trial lawyer who also happens to be a prominent Democratic donor and Charlie Crists boss. In any case, the reaction from those who are pushing the amendment could more or less be boiled down to: Chill. It is not surprising that out-oftouch Tallahassee politicians like Pam Bondi continue to oppose compassionate health care policy in Florida, said Ben Pollara, the campaign manager for United for Care. Just as politicians in the Florida Legislature refused to even give medical marijuana a hearing in the 2013 session, AG Bondi wants to deny Floridians the opportunity to even vote on this issue -despite numerous polls showing that an overwhelming majority of the state is supportive of the issue. BONDIS OTHER OPPONENT But the marijuana amendment was not Bondis only foe this week. George Sheldon, a longtime Florida hand and former Department of Children and Families secretary, jumped into the race against Bondi with an argument that he would return character and integrity to the of ce. The move had been rumored for a while: Sheldon had been considering running for the position, and last week he quit his Washington job as a high-ranking of cial at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the agency implementing the federal health care law known as Obamacare. Sheldons entrance into the race gives Floridians the option of choosing between an attorney general who crusaded to do away with the health law and a Democratic candidate whose boss was in charge of making it work -as long, of course, as Sheldon wins a primary that could also include House Minority Leader Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale. Bondi led the multi-state legal challenge to Obamacare, which was upheld for the most part by the U.S. Supreme Court last summer, and she has been a harsh and frequent critic of the law. She also supported Florida lawmakers decision not to expand Medicaid, something included in the law but which the high court decided was optional for states. Sheldon tried to draw distinctions with Bondis focus on Obamacare. Taking on predatory lenders, human traf ckers, and those who engage in deceptive practices is the job of the Attorney General not working full time trying to deny health insurance to children and anyone with preexisting conditions, Sheldon said in a message posted on his Facebook page Monday. Sheldon said he decided to announce this week so he could drum up support at the Florida Democratic Partys annual conference in Orlando this weekend. Bondi will be dif cult to beat. Shes raised more than $1.2 million for her campaign and a related organization. Shes also seen as a rising star in the conservative movement, frequently appearing on the Fox News Channel and campaigning in other states for Republican candidates. There may not be a greater contrast between two candidates in 2014 than in the Florida attorney general race, Republican State Leadership Conference President Chris Jankowski said in a statement on behalf of GOP attorneys general. On one hand, you have General Bondi, who courageously stood up to the Obama Administration in leading the ght against Obamacare and on the other hand, you have George Sheldon, a man who has spent years defending Obamacare and even worked for (Secretary) Kathleen Sebelius at HHS. Floridians should prepare themselves for a whole lot of excuses from Mr. Sheldon on why Obamacares rollout, in which he was personally involved, has been such a failure. The choice is clear --Pam Bondi deserves four more years as Floridas top law enforcement of cer. ESCAPE PLAN Even as the new Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger prison movie, Escape Plan, was making its way into theaters last weekend, Florida of cials were dealing with a very real escape problem of their own. After apprehending a pair of fugitive murderers late Saturday, the states prison system was left dealing with the fallout this week. With state lawmakers calling for an in-depth review of the escapes, Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey said Tuesday several suspects have been targeted for helping two murderers escape from prison by using forged documents. But he added, there is a way to go in the investigation. There is still a lot we do not know and a lot we have yet to prove, Bailey said during a news conference. Bailey said the state is widening the scope of its investigation into how Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins, both sentenced to life sentences for murder, were able to get out of the Franklin Correctional Institution. Bailey said authorities know of at least ve other attempted escapes using the same method of faked documents, including two that were in process when discovered. One of the prior attempts was by Jenkins. The attempts have occurred at the Franklin Correctional and Gulf Correctional institutions and the Pinellas County Jail. Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, who chairs the Senate Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, said he will hold a hearing on the escapes, which became national news. Bailey said Tuesday he hopes to have new information to share before he goes in front of the Bradleys panel in November to address the issues. Meanwhile, FDLE and the Department of Corrections are also combing through several years of inmate records statewide to determine if other prisoners used fraudulent orders to con their way from behind bars. On Monday, Ninth Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr., issued an order that changes procedures for dealing with criminal-court documents to try to prevent any other inmates from making similar escapes. Perry advised the Orange County and Osceola County clerks of court that effective immediately they must verify with a judge or judicial assistant that an order was issued before the clerk processes and transmits the order to the appropriate Department of Corrections facility. STORY OF THE WEEK: Prison and court officials dealt with the fallout after recapturing two convicted murderers who had escaped by using forged documents. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: You dont open a ski resort on the assumption that nobodys going to be hur t. Thats just silly. The cost of doing business as a ski resort is you recognize theres going to be broken legs. You dont close the ski slope. You fund the ski patrol, said Robert Hunter, who runs the Problem Gambling Center in Las Vegas, testifying at a public hearing of the Senate Gaming Committee about the need to set aside funds for the treatment of gambling addiction. Lawmakers are considering several options on gambling, including allowing resort-style casinos in some areas of the state.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)High time for politics (and better security)By JUDY CONLINTrick or treat time is here and I live with that tricky alter ego of mine, Nurse Judy. I never know what tricks she will be up to. Today when I was lling treat bags for the little ghosts and goblins, she took one look at my expanding girth and began replacing all the goodies in my bags with apples. Children want candy in their trick or treat bags, I tell her. You are the one who ends up eating most of the treats, she tells me, and you dont need any more carbs. You are busting out of your costume right now. What costume? I ask. The one youre wearing right now, she says, smirking at me. I check myself out. I have on jeans and an oversized sweatshirt. Im not wearing a costume, I say. What? she feigns astonishment. You have on a great costume. I love the bandanna around your head, the dirt on your shirt, and the holes in your pants. You are a perfect hobo. I am upset. Hey, I tell her, I have been fall cleaning all week while you just sit around watching TV. Give me a break. She just grins at me. Now that youre going as a hobo, we have to get a costume for me. I am not going as a hobo, I scream. Ive been working something you never do. Go take off your costume, she says, and well nd me a killer costume. You want to go as a killer? Im surprised. Of course not, she says. I plan to go as someone glamorous. There is absolutely no resemblance between Nurse Judy and anyone glamorous so I am intrigued. I actually change my clothes and get my purse. Thats an even better costume, she snickers as she looks at me. Let me guess. Youre pretending to be a homeless person. Youre going to be homeless in a minute if you dont stop, I say. Do you want to go or not? She races to the car laughing all the way. Six hours later we return exhausted and bent over from carrying all her purchases. I op on the couch and she disappears into the dressing room. A few minutes later she reappears. She has on a long mauve lacey gown that has set me back a healthy bit of money. It is off the shoulder showing a great deal of Nurse Judys doughy skin. She is wearing a long dark wig. She has a huge jeweled crown on her head and long dangling rhinestone earrings, which almost hit her bare shoulders. Strangest of all, she is carrying my cat, Bee Bee, wrapped up in a lace curtain. Who am I? she asks. I study her. You are an elegant witch with her mystical cat, I nally say, watching Bee Bee reaching up from his lace covering and batting at her earring. No, she yells. I am Princess Kate with baby George. What a great costume, I say. No one will ever guess who you are. I can tell she doesnt know quite how to take this. She has a little pout on her face. Bee Bee begins wiggling out of the wrap and jumps to the floor, eeing outside. Nurse Judy runs after him. I didnt realize Baby George could walk already, let alone run, I say with a straight face. She glares at me. I may go as an elegant witch, she says. Its tricky dealing with an alter ego, but sometimes I win. Happy Halloween. Judy.Judy Conlin is a nurse in Wakulla and Gadsden counties.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comHitchhiking was once a common means of low cost transportation. A person would walk to the nearest road and hold out their st with the thumb pointed up while attempting to make eye contact with drivers. In a simpler time, hitchhikers were commonly provided a ride to a predetermined spot on the map. In exchange they provided companionship and conversation to the driver. Soldiers on leave, farm laborers, college students and many others used this ride-sharing technique in decades past. While the generosity of strangers still exist, hitchhiking has fallen out of favor with improvements in mass transit and some notable criminal cases involving hitchhikers. Change in travel preferences notwithstanding, Wakulla County still has plenty of active hitchhikers which are seeking a cheap means of travel. The autumn stimulates plants with hitchhiking seeds to relocate to new territory open for colonization. One of the most common hitchhiking seeds locally is Bidens alba. It is known by an assortment of common names including Spanish needles, Beggarstick and Hairy Beggars-tick and is a member of the daisy family. The genus name Bidens means two-toothed and refers to the two projections found at the top of the seed. The species name alba means white which refers to the owers with white petals and a yellow center. This Wakulla County native annual uses the two hooked prongs at the end of the seed to attach itself to anything coming into contact. Each plant produces an average of 1,205 seeds which germinate in the spring. This weed is common in disturbed areas such as roadside ditches and fence rows with full sun exposure. It is capable of growing to six feet in height, but will take mowing and continue blooming. The relatively recent interest in wildflowers has encouraged the propagation of this plant for landscaping purposes. Additionally, it is a popular late-season source of pollen for honeybees and other pollinators. Hackelia virginiana is another hitchhiker currently active in Wakulla County. Common names for this weed include Beggars Lice, Sticktight and Stickseed and mothers countywide have removed these from their childrens clothing. The seed pods are approximately 1/8 inch long and are covered with stiff bristly hairs protruding in every direction. Like Spanish needles, anything which brushes against these seeds will carry at least a few to new locations. The seed pods are green, but will dry to a dark brown. When the outer husk is peeled away, the seed appears as a tiny tan to white bean. The plant is an erect and has a single stalk about three feet in height. This shallow-rooted plant produces a bloom in midto-late summer and seeds in October. This biennial plant has yet to gain the appreciation of wild ower lovers. It is still considered a weed pest and treated as such. One byproduct of hitchhiking weeds has been the invention of Velcro. One half of this product resembles coarse fabric and the other side mimics the texture of a cocklebur, a hitchhiking agronomic weed pest.

The WHS boys cross country team. By EDDIE METCALFWMS CoachThe Wakulla Middle School Wildcat football team won the County Championshipon Tuesday night by beating the Riversprings Middle School Bears 58-22. The rst score of the night came after the Wildcats defense stopped the Bears on four straight plays on their rst drive of the game. The Wildcats took over and scored three plays later on a 45-yard run from Nick Register. On the next kick-off, Dimonte Riles kicked a perfectly placed pooch kick and Jacob Robison knocked the ball out of the receivers hands with a hard hit and caused a fumble. Malik Rollins recovered the fumble and the Wildcats took over on their own 45 yard line. The Wildcats scored ve plays later on a 3-yard run from Athan Dempsey. Cephus Greene added the 2-point conversion to bring the score to 14-0, and the Wildcats never looked back. Cephus Greene, Athan Dempsey and Nick Register blocked well for each other all night and ran behind an offensive line that dominated the line of scrimmage all night. Jacob Robison, Taylor Williams, Dylan Peebles, Bailey Sumner, Austin Nichols and Blake Goldin were extremely physical and opened some huge holes in the Bear defensive front 8. Turn to Page 3B By PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach The 2013 District Cross Country Meet was held on Saturday, Oct. 26, at Phipps Park, north of Tallahassee. The course was familiar to the WHS squads as they had run two meets at the park already this year, and it de nitely paid dividends for them with both the boys and girls teams emerging as District Champions. Additionally, Albert Smythe and Madison Harris captured the individual District Champion titles. This was a meet where the teams went into the race not worrying about times, but with speci c instructions for each runner on the runner or group of runners from they other teams they were to focus on. The whole focus of the meet was to run hard enough to win, but to save something for next weeks Regional Meet in Lake City. The top three teams from each race and the top 15 individuals quali ed for the Regional Meet. Both teams executed their race plans almost to perfection. The day started with the Girls Varsity Race. As anticipated, four girls immediately went to the front of the pack: WHSs Madison Harris and Margaret Wiedeman, Taylor Countys Meagan Giddens and Florida Highs Amanda Toothman. The four stayed together through the rst two miles, with Harris and Giddens just cruising, each waiting for the other to make the rst move. With approximately a half-mile to go, Harris pulled the trigger and the race was over, as she cruised to an 8 second win over Giddens in the time of 21:41. As Wiedeman moved away from Toothman, WHS freshman Haleigh Martin moved into the fray, also passing the Florida High runner, and moving into fourth place. Both WHS runners held their positions, nishing in third and fourth places in 22:09 and 22:15 respectively.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIt was the best game weve played all year long, said Head Coach Scott Klees after his War Eagles dominated North Florida Christian 59-28 at home on Friday, Oct. 25, before a big Homecoming crowd. Offensively, I dont think weve played better, Klees said, noting that three running backs had more than 100 yards rushing each; while quarterback Feleipe Franks went 7-for-10 with 157 yards and three touch downs, while his big brother Jordan Franks pulled in ve receptions for 125 yards and two TDs. The running backs were Malik Thomas, who rushed 11 times for 124 yards; Monterious Loggins, who carried 10 times for 136 yards and two touchdowns; and Antonio Morris, who rushed 10 times for 110 yards and a TD. Its the best offensive output in my 12 years, Klees said. He noted that the War Eagles punted on their rst drive of the ballgame, and didnt punt again. Special teams played well, he said, but there were some things to work on for extra points one was blocked in the game. And the defense did good, Klees said, just gave up a couple of big plays. This week, all eyes are on the upcoming game against district opponent Rickards. When asked what hes telling his team to prepare, Klees laughed. Nothing, he said. They know its a big game. This is what theyve played all year for the season comes down to one game. Both Wakulla and Rickards lost district games to Godby, meaning whichever team wins Friday night goes on to the playoffs. The other team stays home.

This will free up funds to further expand our collection, and to help with other library expenses. While most modern CD players, stereos, computers are MP3 compatible we do realize that this may cause an inconvenience for some of our patrons. This is why were giving 3 months notice before we make the change. We will continue to order CD Audio Books until 2/1/14 and still will have our extensive selection of CD Audio Books in our collection.

DJ Reynolds nished off a 60 yard drive with a 6 yard touchdown run and Lamonta Peterson added the 2-point conversion. Reynolds ran ve times for 38 yards and a touchdown and Peterson rushed two times for 5 yards. The Wildcat defense was extremely physical and displayed some hard hitting, gang tackles and held the Bears to three touchdowns, which all came on big plays. Keoni Parker, Jimmy Langford and Antwan Thomas, along with the rest of the defense, all played tough. Dorian Allen and McKenzie-Brown both intercepted passes and the 6th grade offense and defense nished the game for the Wildcats. Wakulla Middle wins county championshipFrom Page 1BLydia Wiedeman (9th/23:25) and Kayla Webbe (10th/23:25) rounded out the scoring for the local team and enabled the WHS team to place ve girls in the top 10. Connie Lewis (12th) and Emily Lawrence (16th) were the other two local nishers. In cross country, like golf, the lowest score wins and the WHS squad scored 23 points to Florida Highs 44 and Mariannas 63 to capture the team title and ensure them a spot in next weeks Regionals. Harris, M. Wiedeman, Martin, L. Wiedeman, Webbe and Lewis all also quali ed individually for the meet, with Lawrence missing the individual quali cation by only one place. The Varsity Boys went next with the WHS squad picked to dominate the competition, and they did just that. Sophomore Albert Smythe took a much different approach than Harris and jumped to an early lead and never looked back, winning the overall title in 17:52, nishing 22 seconds ahead of the second place nisher, Rickards Soloman Stevens. The other WHS boys executed their race plan of running in a pack, almost to perfection, taking the next ve places and six of the next seven, giving the local squad six of the rst seven places. Stevens second place nish prevented the Rickards team from posting a perfect score of 15. WHSs Lane Williams (3rd) and Bryce Cole (4th) battled for the next two places, but Williams prevailed by a hair with both finishing in 18:18. They were followed closely by Aaron Smith (5th/18:28), Alan Pearson (6th/18:48), Mitchell Atkinson (7th/18:51) and J.P. Piotrowski (9th/19:06). This gave the WHS team an excellent score of 19, easily outdistancing the other District teams. Rickards High School nished in second place with 59 points, Florida High was third with 71 points, Marianna placed fourth with 105 points and East Gadsden rounded out the eld in fth with 132 points. The WHS team quali- ed to move on to the Regional Meet and all seven of its varsity runners also quali ed individually for Regionals. This is the second year in a row that the WHS teams have swept the District Meet and the third consecutive year that the WHS girls have won Districts. The teams also had 16 boys and two girls who competed in the accompanying open race on the same course. This has been a special group of kids this year, noted Coach Paul Hoover. They have been about as hard a working group, across the board, as we have ever had and it showed in Saturdays results. But we also understand that this was just the rst step in what they want to accomplish. The real competition starts next week and it gets a lot harder from here on out. Our goal is to nish among the top six teams at Regionals and advance to the State Meet the following week. The Regional Meet will be held on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Alligator Lake Park in Lake City. The 2A girls race will start at 7:30 a.m. and the 2A boys at 8:30 a.m.Cross Country: Wakulla teams sweep districtsBy JOEY JACOBSRMS CoachFor the rst time in six years and second time in nine years, the Riversprings Bears football team left J.D. Jones Stadium without the title of County Champion. The Bears cross-county rival Wakulla Middle School defeated RMS 58-22 in the annual Sandgnat Slobberknocker, and laid claim to the county title. Wakulla is good, RMS coach Joey Jacobs said. Nobody has beaten them yet this year. The loss dropped the Bears nal season record to 1-6, the rst losing season under Coach Jacobs. The Riversprings offense struggled to get any permanent momentum going all night. It seemed like we either had big plays or turnovers. We could never get a sustained drive, Jacobs said. Quarterback Chris Beverly was 3-of-8 passing on the night for 34 yards and two interceptions. Beverly also chipped in 23 rushing yards on four carries. Kody Zanco had 60 rushing yards on 5 carries, with the bulk of his yards coming on a 55 yard touchdown gallop. Hezekiah Gross added a 63 yard touchdown jaunt. RMS other touchdown came on a 20-yard run by Darrius Smith on a reverse. The Bears were led on defense by Hezekiah Gross, who had 6 tackles. Chris Beverly had 5 tackles, and Easton Lawhon and Isiah Lewis chipped in 4 tackles apiece. Lewis also had 6 assists. The Bears now look forward to the offseason and the task of rebuilding. Although RMS was young in the experience department, they had a large compliment of 8th grade players. We had a lot of 8th graders that ended up starting for us that had never played football before, which was a hurdle. We will be young again next year, but we will have more football experience, Jacobs acknowledged. Riversprings will return one starter on offense and From Page 1B In Class 5A in the state, Godby is ranked No. 1, Rickards ranked No. 4, and Wakulla is ranked No. 7. With the three district teams all ranked in the Top 10 in the state for their classi cation, Klees said that this district is ranked 7th toughest in the nation. Klees said the War Eagles have to stop Rickards quarterback Charlie Kelly. We have to stop him, Klees said. Hes what makes them go. As for Friday nights game, Klees said, Im excited. I am. It should be a great game. Its going to take everything we have to win. Rickards is going to have to play to win, and were going to have to play to win. Its going to be a battle of wills whoever wants it more.War Eagles pound North Florida, 59-28Riversprings falls to WMSMIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALL KEN FIELDS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSMonterious Loggins runs away from defenders.

Klees will have surgery immediately after the Rickards game and will turn over the team to Assistant Coach James Vernon. With a win against Rickards, Wakulla would be in the playoffs, and Klees could recuperate in time to return to the team.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 thewakullanews.com By TIM LINAFELT Its credentials might not pass a close inspection, but, at rst blush, Saturdays Florida StateMiami game has all the makings of a vintagestyle showdown between the Seminoles and Hurricanes. Two perfect records, national championship implications and even ESPNs College Gameday pre-game show will all descend on Tallahassee when No. 3 FSU hosts No. 6 Miami at Doak Campbell Stadium. For the rst time since 2003, the arch-rivals will meet as undefeated, top10 teams in a non-season opener. Never mind that Las Vegas installed FSU as a 21-point favorite on Sunday. Like the old days, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. Well, maybe. Although they each sport identical 7-0 records, the two teams appear to have taken separate paths to get there. FSU has breezed through most of its opponents, winning by an average of almost 40 points per game. The Seminoles rank in the top 10 nationally in total offense (553.7 yards per game) and total defense (314.3 yards per game) and feature a Heisman trophy candidate in freshman quarterback Jameis Winston. They are led by maybe the premier quarterback in the country, Miami coach Al Golden said. They are explosive and they will make you pay for any mistake that you make. That is why theyre ranked where they are. Miami, which ranks 23rd in total offense, 18th in total defense, has survived two close calls in as many weeks, requiring last-minute rallies to slip past North Carolina and Wake Forest. And while UM is hardly bereft of talented players, two of its best quarterback Stephen Morris and running back Duke Johnson have been hampered this season by injuries. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher, though, had nothing but praise for the Hurricanes. Theyre playing very well, Fisher said. They have con dence, theyve won some tight games. Theyve really grown. Als done a tremendous job. And Miami is hardly in the business of apologizing for a 7-0 record. The Hurricanes have already matched their highest win total under Golden, will be going bowling for the rst time in three years and even better finally laid a lingering NCAA investigation to rest last week without suffering any further signi cant punishment. Golden, who took the Miami job under a cloud of NCAA uncertainty, has guided the Canes to the other side and back to relevance on the national stage. Theyre all big now because when youre winning, all the games are signi cant, he said. I think the stakes get higher as you climb the ladder, for sure, and theres not much room for error now. By MARTY COHEN COLUMBIA, Mo. OK, lets get this out of the way before we start discussing anything else Will Muschamp is not going anywhere. No matter the histrionics out there after consecutive dismal performances, Muschamp will not get canned, now or anytime in the next 12 months or so. Doesnt matter where Florida ends up the next six weeks, it is simply not a prudent move to re a coach one season after he won 11 games. No matter how frustrated the Florida fan base is after the Gators horrid showing in a 3617 loss to Missouri here on a crisp late morning/ early afternoon autumn Saturday in the Midwest and the margin of victory was hardly indicative of just how poorly Florida played across the board Muschamp is not going anywhere. Whether you believe Florida was fortunate, or even lucky, at times last season, is immaterial. A program will never get any sort of worthwhile head coach to take over knowing the previous guy was let go one year after winning 11 games. Doesnt work that way, so lets move on. Simply put, Florida is not a very good football team right now, and in actuality, hasnt been a particularly strong club at any point in this season, even when it was sitting 4-1 just two weeks earlier. The Gators were able to camou age their weaknesses thanks to some fortunate early-season scheduling, hosting Tennessee (the Vols decision to start their backup quarterback against UF is still baf ing), visiting awful Kentucky and then welcoming in a limited Arkansas club. But the last two weeks have provided a humbling dose of reality for a Gator team beset by a rash of injuries and rampant ugly play, especially along the line of scrimmage. It was one thing to get handled by a strong LSU outfit in Baton Rouge, especially when the Gators were somehow down just one score in the early moments of the fourth quarter. But last Saturday was a completely different animal. From the first play, when Missouri let a redshirt freshman quarterback making his fi rst start take a shot down eld (thats something novel!) for a 41-yard gain plus another 15 yards for an asinine targeting penalty, the home side let it be known it was going to be the aggressor. One play later it was 7-0 just 22 seconds into the deal and basically the Gators were behind the sticks the rest of the day. We wanted to let them know just because we got a new quarterback, that doesnt mean were going to take our foot off the pedal, said senior wide receiverLDamian Washington, the recipient of the opening pass. It was a great call to let them know, Hey were not backing down, were not going to play conservative. While the Tigers never let off the accelerator in a 500-yard offensive output that would have resulted in more points had they not settled for a number of short eld goals, the Gators dont even have a pedal to step on. Cant run, cant pass, cant block. Other than that, its not bad on offense. Were going to nd some (solutions on offense), we need to, its not very good right now, Muschamp said. We struggle to do anything we try. We try and spread it out and throw it and we cant protect the quarterback, we try and grind it out and were not creating enough explosive runs. We need to fi nd some answers and right now were not nding em. I want to spread it out just like everyone else does but you know what, we have a hard time protecting the quarterback, more than most teams do. You watch the games ... we need to get better. Were inept offensively, have a hard time running it and certainly cant protect very well, Muschamp said. Its very disappointing. We had made more positive strides offensively this season but we regressed again from last week.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 Page 5Boutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWhite-tail deer shed their antlers annuallyStay safe, be responsible on public lands PROTECTING PARADISEWell, it is that time of year again. Yes, hunting season has started in the eastern part of Wakulla County, and on the western twothirds of our county itll start on the 26th for deer with bow only. Ill be out there with my trusty old recurve. Some day I may write a series of articles on making a Self Bow from one of our native trees, as our American Indians did. Ive made a few, and been very pleased with their cast and stability. Perhaps I might also write on making arrows, and also points chipped out of chert/ int, if I get some feedback from my readers! Those interested in such articles can call me at (850) 962-9092. In the meantime my subject for today is antlers. Having worked at zoos Ive watched this amazing phenomenon from start to nish, and truly it is amazing! Generally it happens in this manner with our native white-tailed deer: During the coldest time of the year, when food is the hardest to nd does go into estrus in sort of waves. That is, there usually are three periods, when they are somewhat receptive to the bucks. A few come in heat early, like in late December, then in February most get bred, and then again in March the remaining become pregnant. Keep in mind, does have been known to drop fawns every month of the year in Florida. I saw a newly born fawn last fall in October for instance, which means The rut can vary from year-toyear in an area and be at different times from one county to the next in the same state. As an example, in the Everglades the rut is in August and September when food is the hardest to nd, as usually tropical storms have ooded the area, so the bucks have fully developed antlers and fight then for the right to breed does when food is the slimmest. Then the fawns are dropped in the spring when the whole region is drying up and the does have plenty to eat to nurse their young usually one at rst, then twins from then on. On the other hand, in our Florida Keys in hurricane season, these coral rock islands are dotted with water holes in late summer, and the vegetation is lush, so the fawns are mostly born in the fall, and the rut is generally in the spring when the keys are bone dry again the hardest time of the year to survive! After the does are mostly bred the bucks sooner or later drop their antlers around here in early spring. One antler, tines and all will get disconnected from the deers head, and where it separated theyll be a bloody spot, like a scab torn loose before a sore that has healed. In a few days, the other one will be knocked off, again bleeding barely from the point of attachment. Within a week the spots where the antlers were during the rut, strongly connected to the skull, have healed over and a fuzzy bump has appeared the new antlers are beginning already! By the next weeks end, these bumps will be a half-inch or more in height very obvious when close. And from then on they grow roughly an inch a week, eventually sprouting tines and by late summer taking on the racks full shape and spread. Now all during this growth period the antlers are like exible cartridge, covered with esh that, in turn, is covered with short hairs, hence the term in velvet. During this growth period the antlers seem to be very sensitive to touch, and can be damaged very easily, resulting in a set of non-symmetric antlers, or a non-typical rack as theyre often called. When the rack is fully developed bucks often congregate as buddies but not for long! Soon the esh covering the entire set dries up the blood ow is cut off, and the flesh drys up! It is my opinion that an intense itch takes over, and drives the buck to rub off this esh, which while being torn away from the rack will be red and bloody while still in places hanging from the hardened antlers. And indeed they have hardened! At this point the bucks separate, no longer buddies. Their testosterone kicks in and they attack saplings, termed the rub, leaving the small trees often stripped of bark, and in the process, before the next rut starts, their neck dramatically enlarges! Its hard to believe, but our native white-tail DO shed their antlers annually!Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH PHOTO BY FWCA buck on a rainy day whose antlers are in velvet. By KATIE PURCELLFWC News Across the nearly 6 million acres in Floridas wildlife management area system, of cers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission can be found atop buggies, operating allterrain vehicles, in patrol trucks and on foot. One part of their job is to patrol public lands. This time of year, many hunters are also in the woods too, scouting or enjoying archery season, and other nature-lovers are taking advantage of the cooler weather. Through state, federal and private partnerships, Florida boasts many diverse and exciting public hunting opportunities. The FWC encourages adults and children to get out and enjoy all the state has to offer, and its of cers make sure that people do so safely and responsibly. We want people to be safe outdoors and the resources to be around for generations to come, said the FWCs Lt. Albert Wass de Czege, a field supervisor in northwest Florida. Safety while hunting is of paramount importance, which is why hunter safety courses are required for most hunters. FWC officers make sure all bag and size limits are followed, appropriate methods and equipment are used, and that hunters are hunting during the right hours and possess the necessary license and permits. We also check that all users, not just hunters, are being safe and responsible in our WMAs, Wass de Czege said. They should be operating on open roads or trails, staying off closed roads, following speed limits and showing courtesy to others. As more people hit the woods this fall, FWC of- cers may set up surveillance and plainclothes details and use radar devices to accomplish this. Also, they are just a phone call away if people nd themselves in need of assistance. Violations involving licenses and permits could warrant a $50 ne plus the cost of the license. Penalties can escalate for people with recent previous violations. Some hunting and other violations can lead to more serious consequences, including higher fines and even jail time. If you follow all posted information and treat others and the resources with respect, you will be setting yourself up for a great time in the outdoors, Wass de Czege said. All safety precautions and resource laws are of vital importance, on both public and private lands. Those hunting on public lands just need to remember a few extra things: Do not consume alcohol or use illegal drugs. Pick up all belongings; dont litter; preserve paradise. Only build res of appropriate materials at recognized campsites and thoroughly extinguish ames and embers before leaving. Be sure of the speci c rules for the area in which you plan to visit. You can go to MyFWC. com/Hunting and click on WMA Brochures for more information. Remember to report any suspected sh, wildlife or boating violations by calling 888-404-3922, texting Tip@MyFWC.com or going online to MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert.Editorial note: Protecting Paradise provides a glimpse into the world of an FWC of cer. Finding lost hikers, checking boaters for safety gear and teaching children about shing and hunting are just some of the contributions they make. This column is written by Katie Purcell, Division of Law Enforcement Community Relations Coordinator. It will feature different topics to help communicate with the public and foster the shared passion and teamwork that are vital to protecting Floridas people and beautiful natural resources.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 thewakullanews.com Thank you to Duane Treadon for submitting this article. This past Saturday, Division 1 held its fall meeting. The meeting, originally scheduled for Oct. 19, had to be rescheduled due to the recent government shutdown. The original meeting plan was to have a day and a half of training, business meeting, election of a Division Commander and Vice Commander for 2014, and fellowship our fourth cornerstone. Once the shutdown was lifted it became critical to have the Division meeting and hold the election of our 2014 leadership as soon as possible. This was due to rules that prohibit Flotillas from holding their election until after the Division elections. With several Flotillas, including ours, scheduled to hold their meeting and elections for Flotilla Commander and Vice Commander, the Division meeting was scaled back to just a business meeting and elections. The Division meeting started with introduction of our special guests District 8 Coastal Region Commodore Larry King and District Captain East Mo Davis. COMO King passed on important information about Auxiliary activities in a post shutdown environment. He discussed that while members can go back to supporting the boating public through various safe boating programs only those activities that require no expenditure of funds with the exception of on the water operations such as safety patrols. COMO King discussed that there were funds for surface operations however reimbursement of fuel may be extremely slow and may not come at all. Flotillas attached to an active duty Coast Guard station did have an opportunity to request fuel in kind from the station Commander but it was at the stations discretion and would be based on fuel available and the nature of the mission being requested. At this point in time, Flotilla 12 does not have any patrols scheduled. Shortly after COMO Kings remarks the meeting transitioned to the Division elections. The Division elections are held for a Commander and a Vice Commander. The only members eligible to vote are the Flotilla Commanders, current Division Commander and Vice Commander, D-CAPT East and the District Commodore. There were two members running for Division Commander the current Commander Gordon Schmidt and current Vice Commander Eric DeVuyst. The position of Vice Commander also had only two members running, Flotilla 19, (Panama City) Commander John Beebe and Area Quali cation Examiner (AQE) T.J. Del Bello. Elections were held in secret and by written ballot. After the voting was complete and results tallied it was announced that Eric DeVuyst had won for Division Commander and T.J. Del Bello for Vice Commander. The newly elected leadership team, who will take of ce on Jan. 1, 2014 thanked the membership for their support and insured a smooth transition and exciting 2014. COMO King commented after the election that all who ran needed to be congratulated and thanked for their willingness to serve in these often challenging roles and encouraged all members to support the leadership in 2014.

I have been here for six days attending the American Academy of Underwater Sciences and teaching a Trimix class to colleagues from Colombia. You nd me at breakfast right now. Im eating a breakfast of crushed crackers, chopped fruits, in milk with Gouda cheese on the side and water to drink. Its 8:30 a.m., and no sign of our students. There is no urgency since we have plenty of time now that we have completed almost all the required dives for the Trimix class and most of the skills. They are very happy with the results, but dont like the pace. My argument is make hay while the sun shines. Their reply is the sun always shines! Either they are immensely fortunate or I am a hopeless Yankee. So the pace will now slow down. Island time! With our AAUS meeting now over, papers presented and a successful dive yesterday afternoon ending in a night dive, we are now ready for more theory of helium diving, and trimix routines for the next three days with my two students. One will stay two more days and y out on Friday, Nov. 1, along with me. Bernardo, the local Dutch gas blender, took us to Snake Bay and an easy entry-exit place complete with a picnic table and sand beach. He said he could not join us since we were so slow and would likely end up returning after dark. We were and we did, but these folks were very comfortable with night diving, so much so that one student did not even have a light. He just hung around the others cave light after it got dark. Visibility here is... well, at 200 feet I could see the surface waves -from the underside, of course. The coral is unscarred and plentiful. Black coral swiggles protrude from the reef everywhere. Large Brain and lettuce corals cover the wall. Sponges are seen in abundance and of many shapes. I saw six lion sh, one very large and very few very small sh. There were plenty of pelagic sh in small schools along what might be called a wall, more a steep slope. It leveled off at 220 feet on a sand at. At around 250 or so I am told the edge of their world can be found. The ledge is an undercut that if you go there you will be in an overhead environment. I asked but they told me they know of no caves. And I could not get them to tell me how far in this reverse ledge goes. Bernardo said the island is like a giant mushroom. Talk about the ideal mesophotic zone (the depth and life forms below 150 feet and above 350 feet) in the ocean. And we swam 5 minutes from shore, 7 minutes run time to a depth of 200 feet. The beach we dove is 10 minutes drive from the lab and ve by boat down the coast. These folks do not know what the term logistics means. And I am back in my Hawaiian lifestyle, but without the surf. Many entry sites are ledges with rolling waves crashing in. How do I get a CCR to perform with the shallowwater entry? For now, I differed to a beach entry. If I go missing, I tell my wife, Ill blend in to the landscape around here Ill surface when I sober up. Who needs blood pressure medicine when you have -what we called in Hawaii -Polynesian Paralysis. Its like narcosis, you can function reasonably well as long as you focus on the mission. But when you let your mind slip, the sun, the sea and the warmth of the Island take you away. Its a different world. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSDivision Commander Eric DuVuyst and Vice Commander T.J. Del Bello taking the oath.

Page 12B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 31, 2013 thewakullanews.comBy LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsKauai, Hawaii, Maui, and Oahu, each island enchants visitors, and offers something unique. A simple inter-island ight, still under $100, whisks you quickly from one paradise to the next. Lush and verdant, Kauai is known as the garden isle. But in addition to jungle, she has a dry side where youll discover the Grand Canyon of the paci c, known as Waimea. Its 10-miles long, located on the western side and reaches depths of 300 feet. Scattered throughout are ribbon falls that thread down the steep red walls. Birds soar overhead, and mountain goats bleat; search the crags and imagine how they can climb the cliffs steep faces. The best way to see the canyon is by helicopter. Starting from $211, soar above the mountain peaks, hover in front of giant falls, and get a birds eye view. For those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, for around $64 you can tour. Cheaper still, just DIY in your rental car. As you continue through the park youll spot Mount Wailaleale in the distance. Often shrouded in clouds, rainfall at the peak averages 452 inches a year, making it one of the rainiest spots on earth. When you reach the seaward edge of the park, you will nd a beautiful vista of the canyon as it turns to rainforest. Then retrace your steps to nd the exit. Continue around the island and play on the many beaches. For snorkelers, Tunnels Beach near Haena State Park has a large shallow reef, although currents can make swimming an adventure in helicopter rescue. With exotic names like Poipu and Hanalei Bay, each beach seems more beautiful than the last. Watch for the hawksbill and green sea turtle as you explore. These gentle giants often beach themselves to rest. Snorkelers may spot one munching algae along the shallows reefs, but remember state law prohibits disturbing the turtles. On the east side you will nd the Na Pali Coast National Park. Here the costal mountain ranges sheer cliffs drop vertically into the sea. Hike along the coastal mountains, or bob along the waters edge in a boat, which is the best way to appreciate this stunning sight. Tours start at $109 for a sunset sail and $139 for a snorkel adventure. Kilauea offers visitors to Hawaiis big island the chance to experience an active volcano. Before you set out, be sure to check the volcano report; know how much activity you are likely to experience. On a quiet day you may see a small glowing red pool of lava, while on an active day lava runs in rivers, and plunges into the sea, in a cloud of steam. Helicopter trips from $197 per person offer a closer view of the action, but planes from $159 offer a better value. On the big islands wet side visitors are treated to amazing falls. At twice the height of Niagara Falls, Akaka Falls plunges an impressive 442 feet. For the truly adventurous, a zip line tour whisks participants over the falls for a heart-pounding photo-onFacebook experience. With seven crossings and two waterfalls it will be adventure enough until the next vacation. Diving and snorkeling on Hawaii is among the best. At Captain Cooks Bay divers and snorkelers are treated to waters teeming with frenzied activity. Coral towers mushroom up from the depths in kaleidoscopic colors and varied shapes. Fish dart among the crannies. Light sparkles off schools of jeweled toned fish that dance at the reefs edge. Nurse sharks motor slowly along the bottom. The big island has the highest percentage of coral surrounding the island, just made for exploring. Hilo, Hawaii with ample rain is known for agriculture. Sample locally grown chocolate, coffee, and macadamia nuts at one of the many farms, or enjoy the bounty at the local restaurants. Feast on local favorites like macadamia nut waf es smothered in fluffy whipped cream, luscious caramel macadamia nut ice cream, or tangy apple bananas.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.
