By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netCircuit Judge Jackie Fulford lifted the automatic stay of her net ruling after a hearing on Wednesday morning. Ruling from the bench, Judge Fulford said the situation with the net rules was the same it just doesnt make sense. Mullet nets approved by the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission do not catch legal size fish, the nets catch juvenile mullet that arent legal to sell and must be thrown out, which violates the constitutional amendments purpose to prevent unnecessary killing, over shing and waste of marine life. In her 11-page judgment released last week, Fulford wrote that the con ict between the constitutional amendment that limited net shing the so-called net ban and FWCs net rules intended to implement the amendment had created a legal absurdity. She also ruled that it appeared mullet shermen had been discriminated against by the FWC in its rule-making process. At the hearing Wednesday, Fulford made a nding that FWC is not likely to prevail in its appeal, and that mullet shermen would face irreparable harm, and that FWC rules had resulted in unnecessary killing and waste of marine resources and rules had been unfairly applied to some and not others. After the hearing, shermen Keith Ward and Jonas Porter two of the three named plaintiffs in the lawsuit said the ruling may be coming too late. Things are bad on the coast, said Ward, owner of Lighthouse Seafood in St. Marks. As bad as Ive ever seen them. There just isnt any seafood to be had right now no local oysters, no blue crab, no stone crabs. Theres only two or three sh houses left and theyre about to lose everything, Porter added. It is getting close to the start of mullet roe season when the female mullet are fat with red roe, the sh eggs highly prized in Asia. This once was the most lucrative season for mullet shermen. At the hearing, Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Glogau argued that the stay should remain in effect, especially during roe season contending lifting the stay would mean unregulated fishing that could potentially cause irreparable harm to the shery. During one roe season? Judge Fulford asked Glogau skeptically. Ron Mowrey, attorney for Wakulla Commercial Fishermens Association and the three shermen who brought the lawsuit, argued that Fulford should lift the stay because the net rules are irrational in that the FWCs position appears to be that its OK if fishermen slaughter juvenile mullet, but they cant use a larger net to catch targeted sh because they would violate the amendment. Thats an absurdity, he said. The constitutional amendments prohibited gill and entangling nets in state waters, but left shermen with two 500-squarefoot nets or hand-thrown cast net. The legal battle ever since has focused on those two small nets, with FWC interpreting the amendment to mean that if those nets catch sh by gilling or entangling then they are illegal gill nets. The precursor to the FWC, the old Marine Fisheries Commission, tried to create a bright line by outlawing mono lament and creating a rule that no mesh larger than twoinches could be used. Fishermen responded with arguments that all nets gill including smaller mesh nets they just gill smaller sh, like juvenile mullet and game sh, that arent legal to sell, while the larger legal mullet jump the net and escape. Turn to Page 2A By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netAt Mondays board meeting, county commissioners voted 4-1 to defer wetlands buffer regulations back to the state. The agenda item included two parts a revision of Policy 2.3 of the Conservation Element and the repeal of Policy 4.1. The revision removes the 75-foot wetlands buffer, while the repeal also addresses the removal of the wetlands buffer requirement and removes the comprehensive plan standard for the disturbance of wetlands a portion rendered obsolete since all regulations will be done by the state. There were 23 speaker cards turned in, the majority of whom got up to speak in opposition to the elimination. Consistently since June, when the issue was first brought up, citizens citing water quality, ecotourism and the environment as key reasons to keep the buffers in place and the current ordinance intact, have butted heads with the opposition who say that the issue is all about the property rights in Wakulla. With the majority of the audience opposed to the viewpoint of most of the commission, tempers ared as Commissioner Ralph Thomas shared a presentation featuring the properties of several of those people present, labeling each by name. The slides showed, on one side, a wetland buffer advocate and property owner in possession of wetlands while, on the other side, another property owner who has had trouble developing their land because of the countys regulations. James Hennessey and David Damon were not the only ones in the group who voiced their opinion aloud, calling Commissioner Thomas presentation a personal attack, to the point that Hennessey was asked to leave the room. My point in using these examples, said Thomas, is that youve been able to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Im asking that you let others do the same. Thomas added that the information he was sharing was a matter of public record. Im not saying any one of these people has done anything wrong, Thomas said. Its just that these are people who have been able to use their property as they see t. Commissioner Jerry Moore said that the issue at hand wasnt even about wetlands, but about the buffer itself. He also said that there was no balance on the wetlands committee at the time of the construction of the current ordinance, giving way for heavy bias on the subject. The committee shoved the wetlands ordinance down the throat of the people of Wakulla County, and now theyre getting the repercussions of that, he said. The people have asked us to take it back and thats what were going to do. Commissioner Richard Harden said that he would be voting to restore the freedoms of those who had it taken away.

By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net A high level of interest in the possible incorporation of Panacea was apparent Tuesday night as the Panacea Welcome Center was packed full of citizens waiting to be briefed on the initiative. Mark Mitchell of Panacea Waterfronts presented the history of the project how it came to be and whats been done so far as well as what the next steps will be. According to him, it all started back in 2009, when then-commissioner Alan Brock expressed his interest in incorporation. The next year, in 2010, the idea was furthered when the Florida League of Cities was brought in for help and guidance. At that point, the process of collecting information to do a feasibility study began. Then, an attorney and Gainesville city commissioner named Thomas Hawkins was brought in to help, along with law students from the University of Florida who were charged with writing Panaceas feasibility study. In 2013, the study, once turned in to the state, has to be approved before then coming back to the citizens of Panacea to vote for or against. That vote, Mitchell said, probably wont happen until November 2014. So we have a long time to talk about this, he said. Turn to Page 2A
Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comFrom Page 1A Mitchells presentation addressed the question of why the town wanted to incorporate. Wed like to provide control over our own destiny, he said. Were governed by the county, but wed like to give some control to the city. Mitchell said that another big contributing factor in the desire to incorporate included the ability to submit grant applications as a city. We would be able to take improvements into our own hands. With incorporation, as laid out in their proposal, Panacea would have ve city commissioners that would be elected every four years. Of those ve, commissioners would appoint a mayor who would not have any independent powers. The council, said Mitchell, would negotiate contracting things such as law enforcement, re protection and other vital services on behalf of the citizens. Things like water, sewer and street maintenance will stay the same through an intergovernmental agreement with the county, Mitchell said. Were going to work with the county just like they do in St. Marks and just like they do in Sopchoppy. Moving forward, the proposal will be submitted to the state and will go to the legislature to be looked at during session. If it passes there and is signed by the governor, it will most likely have an effective date scheduled for December so that it is in line with the Tax Collector and Property Appraiser schedules. If that happens, then the time that session ends around May until November elections when Panacea would vote to approve or deny would be a period of education, Mitchell said. Audience members seemed to be equally representative of both concern and approval. Jack Rudloe asked for clari cation as to whether the city charter would hold language that could protect existing local businesses and entities and expressed concern over the political aspects of incorporation. We have severe economic problems in this town, Rudloe said. We have to somehow learn how to get along. We need to become a community, said Ronald Fred Crum. Weve got to ght for our identity. I hope we can take advantage of whats been done so far. Some expressed concern about code enforcement and whether or not the city would be able to write its own policies as some had experienced run-ins with nes. Were a shing community, Walt Dickson said. Were going to have crab traps laying around and were going to have boats in the yard. To that point, it was explained that at the beginning, code enforcement would definitely be continued under the county. However, it could de nitely be looked at in the future once Panacea has gotten its bearings as a city. Mitchell acknowledged the fact that there are a lot of variables and unanswered questions involved with the incorporation but asked for the towns patience and understanding whether for or against the proposal. Bear with us, he said. Well work this out.Panacea incorporation is moving forwardFrom Page 1AFisherman Ronald Fred Crum testi ed at the hearing on Wednesday, and was asked by Mowrey whether reports of mullet landed in Florida had decreased since 1995 which is the year the net ban went into effect. Yes, Crum answered. On cross examination, Glogau asked Crum if landings of mullet had been increasing every year since 1995? Yes, he answered. FWC reports show that 12 million pounds of mullet was harvested in Florida last year. The record high harvest was in the 1940s when 55 million pounds was harvested. Up until the net ban went into effect, shermen would have thousands of feet of mono lament gill net to harvest mullet. After the hearing, Crum said he was disappointed that FWC of cials have refused to talk with him about coming up with a workable solution to the net issue. He said shortly after Fulfords order came out last week that he wanted to work with FWC to nd a compromise. But on Wednesday, Crum said, They dont want to talk.From Page 1AI will always ght for our freedoms, he said. Our golden goose is our property rights and Im going to vote to give that freedom back. At Commissioner Howard Kesslers turn to speak, he said that some aforementioned allegations that those for the wetlands buffers were of the mindset that Ive got mine, I dont want you to have yours was inaccurate. Nobody is in this to make a pro t, he said of those trying to keep the ordinance as it is. In reference to Commissioner Thomas presentation, he said, When you take private citizens and call them out by name, thats shameful. Yes, I have property that contains wetlands and Im for the buffers, how does that show that Im trying to make a pro t? he asked. Chairman Randy Merritt, at the time of discussion, said that he had already made his point clear several times and that he didnt feel the need to repeat himself. Merritt has expressed in the past the need to consider the possibility that, if the county takes away buffer regulations and then, by the pass of a referendum later on, they are put back in place, that the county will be liable for takings claims. Merritt had been the one originally, to bring the wetlands ordinance to the table in June, asking to establish a variance procedure for those who wanted to use their land inside the buffer zone. It was Commissioner Harden who brought an item back at a later meeting proposing to do away with the ordinance completely. Mondays item passed 4-1 with a lone vote against coming from Commissioner Kessler. Moving forward, the amendment and repeal will be transmitted to the state who will have to approve the changes. Once that is done, a nal vote will go before the board in January.Judge lifts stay on net ruling Board repeals wetlands bu ers AMANDA MAYOR AMANDA MAYORMark Mitchell reviews the incorporation effort.

World Day for Farm Animals Day (www.WFAD.org), on Oct. 2, is perhaps the most dramatic of these. It celebrates the lives, exposes the abuses, and memorializes the slaughter of billions of sentient animals raised for food. Recent undercover investigations showed male baby chicks suffocated in plastic garbage bags or ground to death, pigs clobbered with metal pipes, and cows skinned and dismembered while still conscious. Moreover, a recent Harvard study of more than 120,000 people confirmed once again that meat consumption raises mortality from cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Animal agriculture accounts for more water pollution than all other human activities. A 2011 United Nations report recommends eating less meat to reduce greenhouse gases. The good news is that our meat consumption has been dropping by nearly 4 percent annually! Entering live vegan in a search engine brings lots of useful transition tips. Sincerely, Charlie Wallace CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: The Wakulla Historical Societys November program will be a continuing pattern of learning more about Wakulla Countys communities, formed and named in the 19th century and still recognized as speci c places in todays world. We hope to share pictures and stories of families that have grown up in the community of Ivan. Interesting is the fact that we have not been able to come up with the origin or reason for the area north of Crawfordville being called Ivan. Freeman Ashmore, author of the book Looking Back, searched diligently for the answer to the question, Why Ivan? We hope representatives of some of the families who have lived in Ivan in the past century will be present to share their memories of growing up in that community. Family names of Vause, Strickland, Raker, Green, Laird, McCallister, Mathers, Spears, Linzy, Whitton (Whiddon) Pelt, Cooper, Allen and Eubanks are some of the family names that come to mind. We are looking forward to learning more about this farming community of the 19th and 20th century. Mark your calendar and join us for this program on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Wakulla County Public Library. Betty Green CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: In response to the letters read about the Government shut down in the Wakulla News I would like to respond by saying the Senate always has the last say about what kind of bill that Congress sends to the President to be signed. Harry Reid, Democrat and the Majority Leader in the Senate said it did not make any difference with him, he was going to table it and he was not going to read or sign it because he is prejudiced against Republicans. Our foreign neighbors are laughing at us. ObamaCare needs to go away. way. By January, 2014, ObamaCare will cost Americans 25 percent of their paycheck. It takes away our privacy, our freedom of speech and choice, and it penalizes us, and is unaffordable even for the wealthy. (If you penalize the wealthy, you hurt the poor.) To talk and act the way Reid, Biden, and Nancy Pelosi did, is not only unconstitutional, but inhuman. We, the taxpayer demand better. Voters you need to get your facts straight before making comments. The government was shut down by the U.S. President, a Democrat and Harry Reid, also a Democrat. Harry Reid needs to retire! (His boxing days are showing up.) Go home and play with your greatgreat-grandkids, Harry. Nancy Pelosi, likewise! Rep. Steve Southerland is working hard to protect all of us who still believe in America, the land of opportunity and equal rights. As for Jon Kilpatricks article thank you, thank you, Jon! Sarah and Marvin ColvinCrawfordville Editor, The News:We had to write to thank everyone involved with putting together such a great Halloween neighborhood event located near Songbird and Wakulla-Arran roads. Thank you for making it such a special experience for so many children! The decorations and especially the people make it fantastic and fun. Youre the best!Alex and Dianne GraffeoCrawfordville Editor, The News: Poor Emily and John. Shopping and choosing to speak to one of the local politicians (Wetlands ght is about freedom, letter from Ralph Thomas, Oct. 31). One who has a vested interest (mortgages, real estate) in the demise of our wetlands ordinance. In his attempt to make his argument seem substantial, he resorts to fear tactics around property rights. A debate on the tangibility of property rights would require more space than whats allotted for this letter, so suf ce it to say that someone does indeed have a right to own property. However, once owned, that right changes to responsibility. Property taxes, school funding, MSBUs, a plethora of laws, zoning, and building codes to name a few of those responsibilities. These are all enacted to further the health and well being of the community with no intent to be evil or do harm. Where do these responsibilities come from? Small groups of people enact the desires of a larger group of people. We call it government and it works if the smaller group, encouraged by the larger group, is dedicated to its success. If Emily and John choose to entertain any questions I suggest that they consider only one. Why do we choose to live in Wakulla County? If any part of that answer includes the desire to live in an area rich with nature and enjoy the resources it provides (woods, water, wildlife), then I encourage them to think about what steps can be taken to ensure its continuance. If they think that the wetlands ordinance is a viable means to do this and is best for our community then go back and get not one, but two petitions, fill them out and turn them in, so this issue can be brought before the voters. Lewis Holcombe Crawfordville Editor, The News: Please take a moment to think about what it means to have property rights. Property rights are protected in the Fifth Amendment to our Constitution. No one on either side of the wetlands debate will argue against defending those rights. But while we are mulling the issue of property rights, we must also take into account that we live in a society and that societies develop rules by which the citizens agree to live. The Constitution does not mention stop signs but we have them. The Constitution does not mention zoning laws but we have them. Our founding fathers had the wisdom to understand that big government need not be in control of everything and many things should be left in the control of states and local governments. Some things are done for the common good of the people. Having setbacks from the water, marshes and wetlands to avoid degradation of those sensitive areas, having local protection prohibiting the lling of wetlands and keeping buffer areas for water retention and reducing ooding all make sense to me. These local protections are for the good of our county and they are important to us and for future generations. The assertion that people who support the wetlands ordinance dont want anyone to have what they have couldnt be farther from the truth. The wetlands ordinance is important because we want future generations to have exactly what we have: clean water, healthy wetlands, unspoiled natural beauty, and a healthy seafood industry. For these and many more reasons I support our local wetland protections and think they should be continued. Local government is the government most sensitive to our citizens. Please go to www.wakullawetlands.com, print the petition, sign it, and mail it. Let Wakulla vote November 2014. Eugene D. Watkins CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: I volunteered to assist with the Operation Santa effort in Wakulla County for the rst time this year. Little did I realize all that meant. I didnt know 276 families 1,400 people in our county were touched last year by the generosity of local individuals and businesses through the efforts of a 100 percent volunteer program. I didnt know Christmas became a little brighter for those struggling because we live in a county where neighbors help neighbors. I de nitely didnt know I was chairing the committee to locate the businesses and individuals who would make this possible in 2013! With the onset of cooler air and television commercials making Christmas a focus now, I am hoping the generous hearts in our community will nd it possible to get involved. We need adopters who are able to purchase wish list items for a speci c family; we will match a family with an adopter based on the number of individuals you are comfortable adopting. Sometimes groups get together to adopt and have fun doing this together. To adopt, all you need to do is contact me by email at OpSanta@comcast.net or phone at 926-1233. Another easy way to participate is to make a monetary donation which allows volunteers to shop for you. Under the umbrella of the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth we are a nonpro t organization. Contributions can be made by sending a check to Operation Santa, P O Box 1688, Crawfordville 32326 or PayPal using WakullaOperationSanta@ gmail.com. Whatever makes it easiest because we really need you! It also helps the cause if you will like us on Facebook at Operation Santa Wakulla. Thank you to everyone in Wakulla County. I am proud to be a part of a community where we truly care about each other. Robin Lunn CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Who really gains from the removing of the wetlands ordinance? We see that Wakulla Springs is polluted and we sometimes cannot swim at the beaches. We know there is a problem and that were hurting our environment as we grow. So why cant we grow wisely and keep our water clean and productive? We know how to do this. Our County is installing sewer systems where it can. Were cautioned against letting our commercial fertilizer flow into our swamps and rivers. Our wetlands protections keep a buffer between development and our waterway so that pavement and parking lot waste and oils dont ow right into the water supply. There is a lot we can do and we should not allow our wetlands protections to be reduced. Our countys LOCAL protections for clean water far surpass the state Department of Environmental Protections requirements, and it is questionable whether DEP even pursues wetland violators any longer. If someone has enough money, they can buy their way out of most violations, it seems. And what about our local shermen who make their living on our local coast and waterways? Will there be clean water for our fishermen in 10 or 20 years without our wetlands protections? And what about the shorebirds, marshes, and other coastal life? Clean water and undisturbed marshes are what keep our shermen in business and keep the coast balanced, healthy and beautiful. The commissioners are voted by the people and for the people and it is obvious that so many of our citizens are totally against the wetlands ordinance being abolished. This is an issue that is so important for all of us. I ask that the commissioners rethink this and allow the citizens of this county to be able to vote on keeping the local protections in place.

Page 6A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGIn society, we are often focused on ourselves. What I want. What I need. The scriptures are clear that its not about us that we are created for a purpose beyond mere existence for our own bene t and enjoyment. Three key scriptures stand out in pointing to who we are to be as the Church: Christs teachings in the Greatest Commandments, the Great Commission, and the ministry to the least of these. In the Greatest Commandments (found in Matthew 22:34-40, Mark 12:2831, and Luke 10:25-28), Jesus is asked what is the greatest commandment. He responds (Mark version): You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. 31 The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. Its all about love. Love extends beyond ourselves. Its not about us. Its about loving God and loving others as we love ourselves. The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), Jesus tells his disciples, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. Again, its not about us. Its about going forth to make disciples, baptize, and teach. Its about sharing the message, ministry, and love of God through Jesus Christ. And Jesus tells the story, Then the King will say to those on his right, Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. 37 Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you Wakulla Worship Centers Medart Area Crawfordville Area Sopchoppy Coastal Wakulla Station 9:30am Worship Service850-745-84123383 Coastal HighwayChrist Church AnglicanWednesday 6:00 pm Dinner 6:45 pm Bible Study Children, Youth and Adult Bible ClassesThursday 10:00 am Adult Bible StudyThe Rev.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR Does God expect me to pray for broccoli?By JAMES L. SNYDERFor some inexplicable reason, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is under the impression that my favorite hobby is ying kites. I have no idea where she got that notion. Last Thursday, for example, she said to me in one of her sterner voices, Why dont you just go and y a kite? The joke, of course, is on her. Ha! That is not my hobby and I have not own a kite since I was 9 years old when my mother made the same request. Who does she think I am? Benjamin Franklin? Two things guide me in my pursuit of life. I never fool around with fate and I never secondguess the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She suggested on Friday evening that we go out for supper. When younger I would have tried to gure out if she was up to something or if I was in some trouble, but not anymore. One of the great advantages of growing older is shedding the necessity of trying to gure everything out. Life has been much easier since I have started to live in the moment. So much in life is unexplainable that I have stopped wasting my time trying to explain it. Moreover, the greatest thing is, I am not under any pressure to understand everything or figure anything out, especially when it comes to the female side of the matrimonial equation. Let the mystery of romance do its thing. Just one thing, in spite of everything, still bothers me. I know it may be a minor matter to most people, but for me it is important. Do I have to pray for everything? On Friday, my wife and I made our way to our favorite restaurant and to our great delight, our favorite waitress was on duty and we requested her table. Stay with a sure thing, I always say. After our rst cup of coffee, we were ready to contemplate our order. It is not good to order your meal right away; get settled in your seat, have a good cup of coffee and then decide on the meal for the evening. I chose the delicious meatloaf dinner while my better half ordered the pot roast. Both came with what our waitress called a vegetable medley. Let it be known that a vegetable medley was not harmonious with my primeval appetite. With an air of masculine sophistication, I ordered the vegetable of the day. Taking our order, our waitress disappeared into the kitchen while we sat back to enjoy each others society while our meal was being prepared. Luxury, in my book, is where you nd it. After a busy week in the church, it is always bene cial to settle back and relax. Nothing is more important than getting balance in life and keeping it. Before we knew it, the waitress brought our meals and set them before us. Much to my surprise, the vegetable of the day was broccoli. The waitress quickly disappeared amidst some unsuccessful muf ed giggling from across the table. Gaining some measure of composure, my wife requested I offer the prayer for the meal. My question: does God really expect me to pray for broccoli? I was reminded of an incident with my good friend and spiritual mentor, the Rev. Frank Simmons. After a Sunday morning service, a woman approached Frank with a simple request. Oh, Brother Simmons, she said in a dramatic fashion that always irritated Frank, would you pray that my daughter gets married? Without giving her request any thought, he replied in the negative. Why wont you pray for my daughter, demanded the woman. Well, Frank said, tell me something. Does she have any special friend? Is she dating? Frank later told me that many people want God to do everything for them. There is plenty for us to do, he said with a mischievous grin. Of course, Frank rmly believed in prayer but he also believed people have personal responsibility in their lives. So many blame God for the bad in their life. Then when they get in trouble, they want God to bail them out. One of Franks favorite sayings was, Many folk sow their wild oats Saturday night and then Sunday morning pray for crop failure. Some things should not be a matter of prayer but of simple obedience. Prayer is no substitute for action. In fact, in some cases it is not in order to pray. For example, it is wrong to pray about anything clearly forbidden in the Bible. I do not have to pray about hating somebody. It is always wrong to hate and no amount of prayer could ever change that fact. The apostle James set this forth rather clearly in his epistle. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16 KJV). No prayer is worth praying if it is prayed outside of that righteous zone.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

The national child and healthcare organization, started over 90 years ago, is a leader in parenting advice. As your children get settled into the new school year, it is important to protect them from bullying at school. Below are ve ways to help protect bullyproof your children: Encourage your child to develop strong, healthy friendships. Bullies are more likely to target kids who are by themselves than those in groups with friends. Take the time to talk to your child every day about his/her day at school. If you talk regularly, your child is more likely to open up and tell you when there is a problem. Take a solutionfocused approach if your child indicates he/she has been a bullying target. Brainstorm possible solutions and consider the pros and cons of each option and share them with your child. Partner with your childs school. Approach your childs teachers and administrators and ask for their help in creating a safe learning environment. Communicate your love. Tell your child you are proud of him/her and that he/ she always has your support. Parents should watch for warning signs of bullying which include: unexplainable injuries, lost or destroyed clothing, changes in eating habits, and dif culty sleeping at night, said Laura Buddenberg, Training Director at Boys Town. Warning signs also include a declining interest in grades, not wanting to go to school, or faking illness. If you would like more help addressing a specific situation, trained counselors are available at the Boys Town National Hotline. Call 1-800-448-3000.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolSpecial to The NewsWakulla Middle School is proudly hosting their annual Veterans Day program Friday, Nov.8. The Veterans Breakfast will commence at 7:30 a.m. with the program to follow at 8:30 a.m. in the school cafeteria. This years program is expected to last about an hour. Wakulla Middle School invites any veteran or active military personnel, along with their families, to attend and be recognized for their honorable and dedicated service to our country. Special to The NewsSeveral years ago, the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC), in partnership with the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC) and the North East Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC), recognized the need to enhance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curricula for gifted and talented secondary students in some small and rural districts in Florida. The Florida Learns STEM Scholars (FLSS) program was developed to provide innovations to make more rigorous STEM courses available, to create the STEM Summer Challenges led by university staff and STEM professionals, to increase opportunities for real world STEM problemsolving and research, and to provide academic and career guidance from quali ed counselors. The program also enhances educators abilities to provide instruction inside and outside the classrooms addressing speci c learning needs and while building on each students individual strengths. Some of the goals of STEM are to create informed career choices and provide a baseline of knowledge to increase the chances of student success in postsecondary STEM curricula or in the workplace. Two by-products of the program are the collaboration of students from across the state and the networks fostered among business, post-secondary, agency, military and educational professionals. Wakulla High School (WHS) had several students participate in the STEM Scholar Summer Program The Great Eco Debate at Bear Creek Educational Forest outside of Quincy. Students mapped and described the ecology of eld sites where they identi ed, described and classi ed a diversity of plants and animals at their speci c area of the site. The scholars were then challenged to use their scienti c site assessments to make informed decisions about how and where to build a road that would have minimal environmental impacts and nally, to present their ndings and possible road locations at a city commission meeting. Two students participated at another STEM project, The FSU College of Medicine's Summer Institute. This was a one-week residential program on the campus of FSU designed for students who are committed to pursuing a career in the medical eld. Among the opportunities and activities were: physician shadowing, admission and nancial-aid seminars, a research project on a specific health topic, college preparedness seminars, a medical-ethics workshop, mentoring from medical students, and some recreational activities. Four WHS students from the Florida Learns STEM Scholars Program were selected to spend oneweek at the University of Florida (UF), in the Science Quest exploring science and related careers. This program immerses students in various science disciplines to stimulate interest and appreciation for the range of college and career opportunities available to them in the broad spectrum of science. This past summer, one senior at WHS was selected to spend a month living on campus at the University of Florida and shadowing medical professionals at Shands Hospital, a Level 1 trauma center, in Gainsville. The students had the opportunity to explore the many careers available to anyone interested in medicine and to interview several specialists in the Health Care eld. The student also took a free SAT preparation course while at UF. Anyone interested in the STEM program at WHS, please call you students Guidance Counselor at (850)926-2221 or (850)9267125.

Academic preparedness. Community service. Leadership. What parents wouldnt want their children to have these skills reinforced every day at school? The AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) program is going on its fth year in Wakulla, and 2013-2014 is the year to take the strategies school wide so every student can bene t from the help that AVID students receive in their AVID elective classes. Five years ago, AVID was a little known program in Wakulla that started with 75 students. There was one 8th grade AVID elective class at Riversprings Middle School and one at Wakulla Middle School, plus one 9th grade AVID elective class at Wakulla High School. Today there are 255 students enrolled in AVID in grades 7 through 12. By May of 2013, 100% of the rst AVID graduating class had earned acceptance to one or more four year colleges, many of the students with several thousand dollars worth of scholarships. But AVID strategies are not just for AVID students. The big push this year is to make sure all students receive the benefits of AVIDs use of WICOR Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading. Even though a student is not in the AVID elective class, he or she is still taught these skills in the academic classes. This year, some of the college tour trips spearheaded by senior AVID teacher Nancy Floyd Richardson were opened up to all seniors, not just AVID students. All students now learn to take Cornell Notes with their questions on the left side of the paper and their notes on the right so that they can use them better to nd gaps in their understanding and have quality, highlighted notes to study from. Binders divided by subject help students organize their work and keep it all in one place. Critical reading skills and writing across all the subjects, including science and math, help students learn the material better than answering multiple choice questions. Collaboration is a key component of AVID as well. Students get together in study groups and are led by college student tutors who do not give answers but facilitate students asking each other questions to find out where they are missing information or just dont understand a concept. Often students are the best ones to help each other because they can pinpoint the area of confusion. Learning how to form and run a study group is important to college success. The goal of AVID is to target students who have the drive and desire to go to college, but who may not be recommended for advanced classes because they have high grades and average standardized test scores or high test scores but average grades, among other factors. They are capable students who are taught strategies to succeed in a rigorous curriculum. Good attendance and good behavior are also requirements to be in the elective class. Every summer for the past four years, a cadre of 15 teachers and their administrators have attended the AVID Summer Institute, but this was by far the greatest number that wanted to participate. Attending from RMS: Principal Michele Baggett, Dean Louie Hernandez, AVID teachers Kelly Dykes and Shannon Smith, Janet Weber, Chad Linville, Carol Broome, Terri Brooks, Marlene Adams and Lynn Smith. From WMS: Principal Mike Barwick, Assistant Principal Tolar Griffin, AVID teachers Katherine Spivey and Bethany Evans, counselor Sue Hutchins, Josh Sandgren, Sandy Byars, Tim Wheeler, Logan Crouch, Charlotte Hoover, Crissy Sarvis, Eddie Metcalf, Priscilla Tucker, Alex Kauffman, Jessica Mapes, Lindsay Sparkman, Amy Bryan, and Lara Davis. From WHS: Assistant Principal of Curriculum Sunny Chancy, Dean Vicki Tillman, AVID teachers Nancy Floyd Richardson, Melinda House, and Will Pafford, counselor Daniel Lilly, Jacqueline Coronel, and Sara Lovestrand. Newly appointed AVID teacher Heather Gray attended a two-day training in September. Principal Mike Crouch has attended two prior Summer Institutes. In addition, fth grade teachers have asked for training on AVID strategies, and teachers from Crawfordville, Medart, Riversink and Shadeville elementary schools have had training sessions to help prepare their students for middle school. Some of the AVID parents of 2013 graduating seniors were asked to speak at a Parent Night recently. One stated about her son: Being a part of AVID made him discover his true potential in life. AVID pushed him to strive for the best. He would not use the word cant in his vocabulary. AVID challenged him to take the most rigorous classes. I know without AVID and the teachers advising him on the courses, he would not have taken those classes because he didnt have the con dence that he would be able to pass them. But with those resources that AVID gave him, he did pass the classes with ying colors. AVID gave him the con dence and resources that he needed to succeed, such as time management, study skills, Cornell Notes and a higher level of thinking. There is limited space in the AVID elective classes, plus some students cant t it into their schedules. Others might not meet the criteria to get in, as there are speci c quali cations that show the student could bene t from being in AVID. Therefore, taking some of the successful AVID strategies school wide seemed like a natural progression. If something works for some students, we want to share that with as many students as we can. Every tool they have in their toolbox can only help them be more successful with college, technical training, and career opportunities, states Superintendent Bobby Pearce.

November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, which means its time for two of our chamber members to shine Big Bend Hospice Inc. and Covenant Hospice Inc. National Hospice Month is designed to bring awareness of the availability of hospice care and to create a better understanding of what hospice care is all about. Hospice organizations have been formed around the country to provide compassionate care to individuals with life-limiting illness ensuring their natural life would end as comfortably as possible. Hospice care hits home for many of us who have experienced the death of a loved one who had the bene t of being a hospice patient. My parents were both hospice patients in Central Florida in 2000 and 2007. The journey to the end of each of their lives was made more comfortable through hospice care not just for them, but for those of us who loved them and had to process the loss and grieve. Big Bend Hospice will be celebrating its anniversary this month and there are a couple of events to note: Trees of Remembrance will be placed around the county after Thanksgiving and will be located at Ameris, Capital City, and Centennial banks; and the Big Bend Hospice annual Service of Remembrance will be held Sunday, Dec. 1 at 4 p.m. in Hudson Park and is open to the public. Anyone who has lost a loved one, whether or not they were a hospice patient, is encouraged to attend and honor their memory at this service.

Nov. 26 Free countywide Thanksgiving dinner at the Wakulla County Senior Center from 4 7 p.m.Tammie Barfield is president of the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce.By PETRA SHUFFOf the ChamberChamber members and guests filled up the parking lots in St. Marks to attend the last monthly networking luncheon in 2013 at Riverside Cafe, with a record attendance of 79 on a beautiful day. Thanks to owner Stan West for having the foresight to hook up the microphone so Mary Wallace could easily share her excitement about attendance, and announcements. Mary and Petra enjoy hosting these luncheons, and are grateful to the local restaurants for their participation, and of course they would not be successful without our members attending to network. We thank you for a successful year, and we will be prepared to start over in January! Stan and staff did a wonderful job serving up sh or shrimp sandwich baskets or salads, fried, grilled or blackened. Thanks, Stan, for hosting us once again. October will be your designated month! Our program began with new member announcements, welcoming Paul Williams who joined us in August with Merchant Management Group. September members were announced as Bells Drafting & Design and Wakulla Sign Company. Our newest members for October were West Plumbing Services Inc., and Opus Broadcasting Group. Several introductions of new associates were made: Mylinda Sessions is the new bookkeeper at Bennett Better Built Homes. Deidre Farrington introduced her newly sworn in Associate Lacy End-Of-Horn. Turn to Page 11ASpecial to The NewsThe Chamber education committee felt it may be bene cial to our Small Business community to offer a Small Business Accounting Tax & Strategies workshop, considering the end of the year is approaching, which means tax return season is right around the corner. Judging by the attendance it was a good call. We thank FAMU Small Business Development Center for making this workshop available to our Chamber, and employing our instructor, Dennis Scarry with Timesaver Accounting for the task. Scarry went the extra mile and contacted attendees prior to the workshop to nd out which topics and concerns were on everyones mind, and personalized his PowerPoint presentation and workshop accordingly. Topics of the workshop included entity selection, business transactions, recording transactions, retaining records, taxes, chart of accounts, deductibles, how to keep nances in order, organizing records, bad debt, accrual versus cash accounting, and business expenses. Accounting and taxes is a pretty dry subject for most but Scarry made it both interesting and fun to be involved in the discussions. Our evaluation results rated this presenter and workshop as useful and time well spent, meeting and surpassing expectations, paced just right, and the presenters knowledge as excellent. The pot for attending was sweetened by BDC offering a drawing for a 2012 Quick Books for Windows license, which was won by Tammy Hornbaker of TGH Billing Service, and a two-hour Quick Books training session offered by Scarry, and won by Shari Edington of Shell Point Realty. One last piece of advice we walked away with from this workshop was If you want to succeed in business, take charge. Scarry demonstrated this by reaching into his wallet and holding up a $20 bill and posing the question: Who wants this $20 bill? Of course everyone wanted it but one person, Charlean Lanier, took charge and walked up to grab the bill out of Scarrys hand. Scarry is the founder and President of Time Saver Accounting. Time Saver Accounting works with Small Businesses with 25 or fewer employees in the areas of Bookkeeping, Tax, and QuickBooks Training. Dennis has been helping Small Business Owners for 15 years. He is a QuickBooks ProAdvisor, a member of the National Society of Accountants and the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 Page 13ABy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Nov. 1 With a new fundraising law in place and the drama about Charlie Crists plans all but over, the 2014 election campaign began in earnest this week. Former Gov. Crists long odyssey from Republican officeholder to independent Senate candidate to Democratic gubernatorial front-runner took another step toward completion. And Alex Sink, the former chief nancial of cer once seen as the Democrats best hope for governor, geared up to run for Congress instead. Meanwhile, the states gun laws once again drew attention from Washington, D.C., and a sheriff in North Florida used a gun-rights defense to win acquittal on charges that he tried to cover up the release of a man arrested for toting a loaded gun. CRISTS ROLL-OUT NEARS COMPLETION Over the last several months, the worst kept secret in Florida politics has been that Crist, who once proudly proclaimed himself a Reagan Republican, would run for the states top job as a member of the party of Obama. Crist made his candidacy of cial Friday when he led for the of ce, with the formal announcement to follow Monday in St. Petersburg. Already, Crist was laying the groundwork for his campaign: slashing attacks on Gov. Rick Scott, more in the spirit of disappointment than anger, and efforts to polish the charismatic persona that once earned Crist a spot on the vice presidential shortlist but has come under scathing attack from Republicans. Each voter should do what they feel in their heart. Men, women, gay, straight, black, white, young, old, it doesnt matter. They should vote for who they feel will fight for them the best, whoever it is, Crist told The News Service of Florida this week during a wide-ranging interview outside a downtown Starbucks not far from his waterfront condo in St. Petersburg. Crist ticked off a list of particulars against Scott that ran the gamut from the governors rejection of high-speed rail money to his education policies to Scotts oft-discussed tenure at the head of a company that paid $1.7 billion in nes and settlements to resolve accusations of Medicare and Medicaid fraud after he left the company. I dont know much about him that isnt ethically challenged, Crist said of Scott. It troubles me that the leader of our state is not acting like a good servant. Being a good person starts with honesty and integrity. The notion that weve elected an individual who was the head of a company that had to pay the largest ne for fraud at the time in the history of our country is just mindboggling. Republicans, meanwhile, were gearing up to continue the political equivalent of a napalm attack against the former head of their party. Hes not a serious person, said Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry. Hes not t to govern. Hes a campaigner. Thats it. Hes goodtime Charlie. The GOP was reportedly preparing to spend as much as $525,000 to start hammering that message home in ads -just as soon as Crist announces on Monday. Why did Crist wait until little more than a year before the race to le? No one was certain, but many had already pegged sometime around the rst of November for his announcement. As of Friday, candidates for statewide of ce can now raise $3,000 per person, per election instead of $500. SINKING INTO A DIFFERENT RACE When Sink bowed out of a potential race against Crist earlier this year, many thought she would at least take a little time away from the campaign trail. But with the death of Republican Congressman C.W. Bill Young and the opening up of his swing Pinellas County district, she ended up simply switching one campaign trail for another. Sink announced Wednesday she would enter the race for Youngs seat, potentially capsizing the campaign of St. Petersburg attorney Jessica Ehrlich. Ehrlich ran against Young in 2012 and had already announced she would run for the seat again in 2014 even before Young announced he would retire. Sink, a former banker, said she was frustrated and upset at the recent government shutdown and partisan gridlock in Congress. It was just kind of being angry at the television and thinking, get your act together, Sink said in one of several interviews she conducted at a local burger joint. We need people who can put bickering aside and be problem-solvers and work across party lines. And thats what I did in Tallahassee. Democrats celebrated the recruiting coup. The GOP was still trying to straighten out its eld and avoid the kind of primary that could divide the party and give Sink an even easier path to election. Almost every Republican in Pinellas County seemed to be oated as a potential contender, though at least part of the establishment was believed to be coalescing behind former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker. I think that the primary will eventually not be that crowded, said Michael Guju, chairman of the Pinellas County Republican Executive Committee. STANDING HIS GROUND Half a state and seemingly a world away from the political hubbub in Tampa Bay, Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch fought off charges of of cial misconduct and falsifying public records, allowing him to be reinstated to his position by Scott. The criminal charges and suspension came after a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation concluded that the sheriff released a local man, Floyd Eugene Parrish, who had been arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, and that Finch destroyed or altered records of the arrest. But it took a jury from the rural county about 90 minutes to acquit Finch, 51, who had argued that he was simply trying to follow the Second Amendments charge that citizens have the right to bear arms. It was his belief in the Second Amendment that prompted Sheriff Finch to release Mr. Parrish, said defense attorney Jimmy Judkins in closing arguments. Its a way of life over here for people to own guns. Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell argued that Finch was a politician who owed Parrishs family a favor for helping to elect him. Finch was elected in November 2012 in a close race, narrowly defeating the incumbent. According to an FDLE af davit, a Liberty County deputy arrested Parrish during a traf c stop for the felony charge of carrying a concealed deadly weapon --a loaded semi-automatic pistol that was found hidden in his right-front pants pocket. The Parrish brothers -their support in the campaign led to a get-out-of-jail-free card, Campbell said. Judkins argued that Finch didnt have any relationship with Parrish. He said Finch was trying to avoid creating felons out of people who are minding their own business and not being a threat to society. While the case in Liberty County didnt touch on the states famous stand your ground self-defense law, that policy was at issue in a hearing of the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights, chaired by U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. As often happens in such cases, the hearing seemed as much about what senators wanted to say about the law as what they wanted to nd out. Self-defense is a bedrock liberty of every American, said U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. For their part, opponents of the law say it has turned Florida into a free- re zone. I face the very real possibility that my sons killer will walk free, hiding behind a statute that lets people claim a threat when there was none, said Lucia McBath, whose son, Jordan Russell Davis, also 17, was killed while sitting in a car during a dispute over loud music in Jacksonville. STORY OF THE WEEK: Former Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat, led to run for his old job again in 2014, setting up a likely showdown with incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Trusted to do what? To stay in the crazy club? Well I hope not. Crist, on charges that his party-switching means Floridians shouldnt trust him.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Political ghts and gun rights WHITES WINESConsumer revolution in wine -Janet By DAVID WHITE This democratization of wine is great, asserted Jancis Robinson, one of the worlds leading wine authorities, over coffee one recent morning. Robinson was in Washington, D.C., to promote the seventh edition of The World Atlas of Wine, the indispensable reference book co-authored with Hugh Johnson. Robinson has spent the last four decades writing about wine, publishing thousands of reviews. Yet while chatting about wine criticism, she seemed excited about the prospect of consumers putting less stock in her opinion. No longer are wine critics and reasonably well-known wine writers like me sitting on a pedestal, haughtily handing down our judgments, she said. Nowadays... [consumers] can make up their own minds. Thats altogether a lot healthier. To hear Robinson so eagerly applaud the declining in uence of prominent critics was refreshing. In the optimistic future of American wine, well-informed consumers will be con dent in their own preferences and eager to explore without consulting a professional critic. Already, were well on our way. Just look at CellarTracker. In 2003, Eric LeVine, a wine collector, built a data-management program for his cellar. His friends soon begged him to share it online so they could catalog their wines and record tasting notes. So LeVine made his program available to everyone, for free. The website has become extremely popular, with nearly 1 million monthly visitors. Each day, more than 2,000 wines are reviewed on the site. This means CellarTracker users review more wines every six days than Robert Parker, the worlds most famous wine critic, reviews in an entire year. CellarTracker isnt just used by oenophiles. About nine in ten visitors are unregistered, meaning regular consumers visit the site for wine reviews. This demonstrates that fewer and fewer consumers are relying on prominent critics to tell them what they should or shouldnt drink. Its no wonder why Alder Yarrow, the wine writer behind Vinography. com, celebrated the CellarTracker age during a recent appearance on Ill Drink to That with Levi Dalton, a popular podcast. While discussing the waning impact of critics like Robert Parker and publications like Wine Spectator, Yarrow praised the multiplicity of voices that now populate the wine world. There are thousands of opinions... and people like me all over the States and all over the world are [now] accepted as critical authorities on wine. In addition to CellarTracker, these critical authorities are sharing their thoughts on personal blogs, message boards, and social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. While some of these authorities are like Yarrow i.e., well-known wine writers with large audiences many are simply in uential, local voices, like the staffer at the neighborhood wine shop, the hip restaurant sommelier, or the wine geek in everyones life. Many amateur critics -and virtually all CellarTracker users -continue to utilize a 100-point scale to score wines. But as the number of wine critics increases, one can only assume that the reliance on points will diminish. This, too, will be a positive development. After all, tasting is subjective, and one critics 95-point wine is another critics swill. Thats why it can sometime seem as if every wine on a supermarkets shelf has been awarded 90 points or more. Such pronouncements only make sense when theyre coming from a critic whose palate you trust. Here, too, Robinson is hopeful. I hated it when it was the tyranny of the points, she said. I think it affected American retailers particularly badly, who for a long time gave up their own selection process and palates and just rolled over and repeated what [Robert Parkers] Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator said. Whats the fun of that? They were abdicating responsibility, really, for wine selection. Already, more and more wine retailers are eschewing points. These shops stock their shelves with handpicked wines -and theyre staffed with wine educators who are eager to chat with customers. Without question, consumers are growing increasingly comfortable dismissing those gatekeepers who sit on a pedestal, haughtily handing down judgments. Thats why the future of wine in America is so bright. David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com, which was named Best Overall Wine Blog at the 2013 Wine Blog Awards.
Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comNothing on four feet is identi ed with Florida as much as the alligator. The toothy grin is found on post cards, T-shirts, and a nearly unending list of tourist promotional items which invite northern visitors to come and leave their money. Florida has two native species of crocodilians, the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) and the American crocodile (Crocodylus acutus). Fortunately, only the less aggressive alligator is found in Wakulla County. The American alligator once occupied all wetland habitats along the gulf coast and on the Atlantic side up to North Carolina. From freshwater marshes and swamps to mangrove estuaries, alligators were present. The family Alligatoridae, which is distinct from crocodiles, rst appeared about 37 million years ago. The fossil records indicate crocodiles have existed since the late Cretaceous period 84 million years ago during the last days of dinosaurs. Today there are only two species of alligator in the world, the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) and the Chinese alligator (Alligator sinensis) which is in danger of becoming extinct. The name alligator originated with the Spanish explorers who identi ed this reptile as el lagarto, the lizard. This eventually changed into aligarto and then alligator by English settlers who arrived later. The family Alligatoridae includes ve species of caimans, which are native to Central and South America. Spectacled caimans, which are smaller than the American alligator, have become established in some parts of south Florida, presumably from people releasing pets into the wild. Alligators prefer freshwater, rarely being found in brackish sources. Crocodiles in this hemisphere occur almost exclusively in the marine and brackish coastal waters of extreme southern Florida. Alligators primarily hunt at dusk or during the night taking advantage of reduced visibility and their natural camou age. These ambush predators lay motionless in wait for prey. Their prey selection is determined primarily by the size of the target species and the determination of the gator. Also, an alligators diet depends on what is available and it will eat anything digestible including fish, frogs, birds, turtles, insects, snakes, small mammals, other alligators, whitetailed deer, wild hogs, and sometimes peoples pets. Once the prey is caught, it is typically swallowed whole. The gators teeth are designed for gripping, but not chewing. Alligators have exceptionally powerful jaws which can crush turtle shells and the bones of small mammals. A ap in their throat allows this reptile to capture prey while submerged without water entering the breathing passages. The alligator will stash its kill underwater when prey animals are too large to be swallowed whole. The unfortunate animal will be pinned under a submerged log or anywhere it can be wedged in for safe keeping until ready for consumption. Alligators are generally timid towards humans and tend to retreat if approached. However, if a gator become accustomed to humans in its environment, a serious problem can result. Alligators have been the subject of numerous urban legends including a hyper-aggressive population in the New York City sewers. It is true baby gators were sold to tourist in previous decades, but the wild population is located only in warmer latitudes.

Going into the Regional Meet, the boys were ranked 7th and the girls 6th. Only the top 15 individuals and/or six teams would earn the right to advance to the State Meet. That meant that the girls had little wiggle room and the boys had to perform better than the experts had predicted. The 2-A girls were the rst to race, so the starting gun for the local girls red at 8 a.m. and the race to state was on! As anticipated, two Bolles girls and Wakullas own Madison Harris bolted to the front of the charging mob. At the half-way point, the three continued to battle for the lead, with Bolles Mackenzie Wilson (runner-up at last years State Meet) opening a slight gap on the two pursuers. Harris and Bolles Ally Hajda were locked in a tight battle, with Harris looking strong and relaxed and holding a couple of seconds lead on Hajda. Wakullas Margaret Wiedeman was in about 20th place and second for the team with the rest of the local squad strung out behind her. When the lead runners broke out of the woods onto the nal 150 meters of grass, heading for the nish line, Harris had solidi ed her second place nish and unleashed her patented kick that ensured that no one would prevent her from becoming the Regional Runner-up in 19:28. Back in the woods, Wiedeman and freshman Haleigh Martin were moving up through the eld in their quest to nish in the top 15 and qualify individually for State. In the last 800 meters, Martin actually moved past Wiedeman and unleashed a withering kick of her own, moving up in the eld to nish in 12th place in the excellent time of 20:53, which was a new personal record (PR) for her. Wiedeman hung on to run to a strong 15th place nish (21:13), ensuring both a slot at the State Meet and giving the local team three runners in the top 15. The real question was how WHSs fourth and fth runners, the nal two scorers, would nish and would it be enough? Kayla Webbe ran a strong, competitive race and was the next runner for the local team, nishing in 23:22/50th place. Sophomore Connie Lewis nished in 56th place/23:50. Emily Lawrence and Lydia Wiedeman were the nal local runners to nish and completed the WHS team. Once the scores were tabulate and posted, the local girls began their celebration they had scored 120 points, placing them 4th and nailing down an invitation to the big dance. The local boys were standing nervously on the starting line, knowing that Jacksonvilles Episcopal High School was the team they had to beat if they hoped to advance to the State Meet. They also were very aware of the fact that they had missed qualifying for State last year by a mere three points, a fact that still hurt, even a year later. They were also cognizant of the fact that no Wakulla boys cross country team had ever quali ed for the State Meet. They also had to contend with the fact that their lead runner had struggled all week with an eye infection and that another top runner was sick and ultimately decided not to run. The hill kept getting bigger, but the kids knew that they had worked hard since last year and that they were not willing to conceded anything to anyone. At the gun, the teams were off and the ght was on. Albert Smythe, who has emerged as the teams leading runner, once again took that spot, passing the halfway point in about 18th place. Lane Williams and Bryce Cole followed close behind, with Aaron Smith, Mitchell Atkinson, Alan Pearson and Travis Parks in close pursuit. They werent running as a pack, but they were keeping their eye on each other and ghting for every position. At the finish, Smythe managed to finish in 17:56/23rd place as the rst WHS runner. Lane Williams was next to cross the line in 18:11/29th, setting a new PR. Close on his heels were freshman Bryce Cole (34th/18:16) and senior Aaron Smith (38th/18:18). That put four WHS runners in and the wait was on for the fth and vital team scorer. On this day, it was Junior Mitchell Atkinson who came through, nishing in 57th place, in 19:03, with Alan Pearson (19:06/60th) and Travis Parks (19:13/63rd) in close behind. In counting runners, Episcopal had six runners nish before Wakullas fth runner came in and, frankly, it did not look good for the local squad. The whole team waited anxiously for the scores to be tabulated. When they were nally posted, the WHS boys had made school history, and erased some of the pain from last year they had of cially placed sixth and earned the rst trip ever for a WHS boys team to the State Meet with a narrow 4 point win over a very talented Episcopal team. We coaches couldnt be any prouder of this group of athletes, said Coach Paul Hoover. Both the boys and girls team faced a lot of adversity this year, but they never lost sight of their goal and never waivered in their belief that both teams would qualify for State for the very rst time ever. And they did it! This is a very resilient, hard working group of athletes and they accomplished something special. The State Meet will be held Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Apalachee Regional Cross Country Park (ARP), approximately 6 miles east of Tallahassee off Apalachee Parkway. The girls race will start a 7:55 a.m. and the boys will go at 8:45 a.m. Running back Malik Thomas with the ball.By AMANDA MAYOR email@example.comAny hopes of the War Eagles making the playoffs this year were eliminated Friday night as the team suffered a 22-16 loss to the Rickards Raiders. With both Wakulla and Rickards having obtained losses on the books to their only other district foe, Godby, the ght for the playoffs came down to last weeks game a ght that was made even more dif cult by patches of relentless wind and rain at J.D. Jones Stadium. At the beginning of the second quarter, it began to sprinkle over the eld, gradually becoming heavier and quickly turned into a downpour. After battling through the conditions for most of the quarter, lightning strikes near the field forced of cials to call a 30 minute rain delay with 55 seconds left in the half. With that, the team was sent to the locker room, after 30 minutes were brought back out to finish the half and then sent back in again at halftime. But the rain didnt stop there. It came back off and on during the second half as well. The lack of further thunder or lightning meant the teams continued to play through the conditions for the duration. Id say the rain de nitely affected us, Assistant Head Coach Vernon said. In the rst half we were able to control the clock and we played well. We held them and ran the ball down the eld. The rain started in the second quarter and thats when we started having issues on offense, I think it took away our edge. Vernon said that the delay, of course, didnt help either. We came back and were missing blocks, he said. According to Vernon, the coaches were getting reports from the players that they couldnt hear their blocking assignments because the rain was hitting so hard on their helmets that it drowned out any other noise. So I think it was de nitely a factor, but you know, youve got to be able to overcome those things if you want to come out on top, he said. Realizing, of course, that their season is not yet over, Vernon took a moment to re ect on the season as a whole. Im really proud of how weve played all season, he said. These guys have overcome one of the worst seasons for injuries that weve ever had and have fought back. Theyve been through a lot and battled through it all. Looking ahead at their nal game against Gainesville, Vernon said the War Eagles will have to beat a pretty good team one player in particular. They have one running back that has committed to Oregon, he said. Hes very good and very talented. Our goal will be to stop him. Vernon said that with the end of the season at hand, the coaches have their eyes set on a win for their players. Were going to do everything we can to send these seniors off with a win, he said, adding that the coaching staff has, what he thinks, is a very good game plan that should help them to do so.

A great time was had by all and we had a blast putting the party on for our patrons. Special thanks go out to the volunteers who shared their time (and baking skills) to help make the party a success. We are already coming up with ways to throw an even better one next year! FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE Our Friday Night Movie this week is the latest animated blockbuster from Pixar, the studio behind the Toy Story & Cars lms, among many others. This G rated lm is the sequel to the worldwide hit Monsters Inc. Starring the vocal talents of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, & Helen Mirren, among others, this lm tells how the heroes from Monsters Inc, Mike & Sully met in college and became friends while learning the skills that made them so terrifying in Monsters Inc. Please bring the family out this Friday at 7 p.m. for this hit film. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. and even though its a G rated lm, we ask that all minors be accompanied by an adult. AUDIO BOOK CHANGES COMING In the interest of keeping our patrons fully informed, wed like to announce that beginning Feb. 1, we will only be ordering MP3 disc versions of our audio books and no longer will be ordering CD versions. MP3s combine entire books on 1 or 2 discs and come at less that the cost of the multi disc CD versions. 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. We are not getting rid of what we already have, were just not ordering anymore come 2/1. Lastly, remember we also now have downloadable audio books though our e-book website as well. If you have any questions/ comments please dont hesitate to contact me.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 Page 3B By TIM LINAFELT For all the talk of Heisman candidates, blowout victories and national title aspirations befitting of the 1990s, the 2013 Florida State football team entered Saturday night with a glaring spot on its 90sera checklist un lled. Any Seminoles team, whether it be in 1993, 1999 or any of the other great teams in-between, holding national championship intentions rst had to go through the Miami Hurricanes. And more often than not, they had to do it on a stage similar to the one featured at Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday. These Seminoles crossed that checkpoint off their list with a 41-14 victory over sixth-ranked Miami that was yet another indication that this a season unlike any weve seen around here in quite a while. I believe you can go 2-10 as long as you beat a team like Miami and Florida. Thats what people around here want, senior defender Lamarcus Joyner said. For us to be able to have success and knock off a powerhouse like that, its like the old days. Old days, indeed. Florida State, of course, has never won a national championship without first beating the Hurricanes. And Miami has infamously (and sometimes singularly) prevented the Seminoles from earning more crystal footballs than the two they already have. Which is why, despite an eyebrow-raising point spread, this game meant an awful lot. The Miami of 2013 may not quite be the Miami of old, but the last dozen years of FSU football teams can tell you how tough it is to get off to a 7-0 start, regardless of how they got there. And the laws of college football rivalries suggested that the Hurricanes who showed up in Tallahassee would play much better than the iteration that struggled past North Carolina and Wake Forest. We saw that almost immediately, when Miami answered FSUs 13-play, 72-yard touchdown drive with an 11-play, 50-yard possession that ended without points but announced its intentions to not be bullied by the Seminoles. Miami countered FSUs blows by taking advantage of two Jameis Winston interceptions, rst to tie the game at 7-7 and later to cut its halftime de cit to 21-14 just moments after the Seminoles appeared ready to put the game out of reach. With UM down a touchdown and set to receive the ball to start the second half, a sense of unease wormed its way into the record crowd of 84,409. But it was then that this years Seminoles showed off another trait shared with their 1990s brethren their resolve. Just as the 1993 team needed Charlie Wards 79-yard swing pass to Warrick Dunn to put away Florida and the 1999 team requiread a second-half rally to overcome an 11point de cit at Clemson, FSU on Saturday night entered the third quarter in need of a quick stop and some quick points. They got the former when senior Terrence Brooks went unblocked on a safety blitz, bringing down UM quarterback Stephen Morris and coaxing an intentional grounding penalty in the process. They got the latter a few moments later thanks to a 10-play, 83yard drive punctuated by James Wilder Jr.s ve-yard touchdown run, the rst of 20 unanswered points in the second half. It was one of four FSU scoring drives of 10 or more plays. It was scary out there, Joyner said. It was emotional, it was hard-nosed football and we needed that test. The 1993 Seminoles entered their season with an eye on a national championship, but it wasnt until a 28-10 win over Miami the same team that had wrecked their hopes by a combined four points in 91 and 92 that the dream began to feel real. For this team, that moment probably occurred two weeks ago in Clemson. But the fact remains that these Seminoles were never going to get where they want to be without rst beating Miami. People like to say its just another game, but when youre in the state of Florida, its not, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan said. When youre playing Florida, youre playing Miami, its not just another game. Its a must. Youve got to have it. By MARTY COHEN I have been analyzing and searching for solutions and cures for the myriad ills that surround this team. Beyond many of thecurrent ideas, positive and negative, we decided to scratch the memory bank and history books as we often do to nd a similar scenario from the Gator past and see if any of it applies to todays morass. And while the forthcoming comparison comes with a few differences, there is a thread that ties the two together. Were going to take you back to 1980, the second year of Charley Pells regime, a renaissance season where the Gators finished 8-4 after the miserable 0-10-1 debacle of Pells rookie season in 1979. With a beyond-miserable offense in 79 that produced a mere 106 points in 11 games, the Gators shocked the world behind an unknown sophomore lefty quarterback named Bob Hewko, ripping off three wins to open the season and scoring 107 points in the process. Florida actually appeared in the polls at No. 19 but true to form in those days, the bottom dropped out when Hewko suffered a season-ending knee injury in a home loss to LSU. The keys to the kingdom were turned over to ballyhooed freshman Wayne Peace, but the ultra-conservative Pell toned down the short passing game of first year offensive coordinator Mike Shanahan, as Peace attempted only 10 passes in UFs next game, a 15-3 win at Ole Miss. Then came a 13-0 Homecoming snoozer W over Louisville and a 21-10 home win over Auburn, when slowly more elements of the original offense appeared. The Gators returned to the polls at No. 20 and up next was second-ranked, undefeated Georgia, led by the incomparable Herschel Walker. With growing confidence in Peace, Shanahan headed a spirited battle against Pell in the coaches of ces, with the 27-year-old offensive whiz winning out. I will never forget sitting under the big oak tree on the perimeter of the practice eld as the Gators unveiled a new offensive scheme for the Dawgs (we were sworn to secrecy, and actually trusted, back in those days). What we saw was the installation of a high- ying four-wide receiver set, which was quite radical some 33 years ago. The key component was the insertion of 6-6 Tyrone Young, who opped as a quarterback a season earlier and was basically in mothballs on the bench. He was going to be the featured receiver in a scheme no one had seen outside of the UF camp. It worked brilliantly as Peace threw for 282 yards and Young was magni cent, hauling in 10 passes for 183 yards as the Gators erased a 20-10 fourth-quarter de cit and forged a 21-20 advantage in the closing minutes, with an SEC title and a berth in the Sugar Bowl just one more step away. Of course, not that we really want to remind long-time Florida fans, but this was the Lindsay Scott Game as the Gators stayed true to their reputation and found a way to lose on a 93-yard catch-and-run in the nal minute that stands alone in dreadful Gator lore. But if it wasnt for Scott and the Dawgs late heroics, this probably would be remembered as the Tyrone Young Game, and heres the point that binds us to thepresent. In the span of a few days, the Gators changed their offensive approach, and opened up the works for Peace, who had been on a very short leash in his rst three games as a rookie starter. But knowing theyd have to tee it up with the powerful Dawgs, who went on to win the national title, Pell begrudgingly let Shanahan and the offensive staff devise a newfangled plan that came with inches of pulling off the dramatic win. But there is precedent here, for implementing some changes in the offensive plan.

Well, here we are into November and shing is still good. There is still plenty of bait around and there are lots of big Spanish. We had one up to the boat Sunday that would have been over 5 pounds. Also caught the biggest blue sh I have ever caught around here. I have also caught the most big ounder around the oyster bars this year than I ever have. Im hearing that from other people too. The water temperature is in the 60s and I just cant believe the bait is gonna stay around that much longer. When it leaves I think that will be the end of our Spanish and blues until next spring. Just got off the phone with Capt. Randy Peart. He said they caught lots of sh on their trip to the Keys despite having some lousy weather a couple of days. He said hes catching lot of trout, mostly oversize reds, plenty of Spanish and some big black sea bass. He is also catching the biggest blues he has ever caught. Capt. David Fife has been on the water more than he has been off of it lately. Hes been catching lots of trout on mudminnows, Gulp and top water baits. He said the big reds must be following the mullet and he hasnt seen that many mullet and therefore not that many big reds. He is catching some big ounder on the bottom with minnows and also catching some Spanish. David fishes out of Spring Creek and he said the sh havent moved in there yet. A good neighbor of mine, Richard Gardner, told me week before last he got onto the trout one afternoon late on the rising tide and had an absolute ball. Most of the trout were over 20 inches and all were caught on top water baits. He fished Saturday with Dr. Julian Hurt and they caught lots of trout using live shrimp and a Gulp. Capt. Luke Frazier said lots of white trout are being caught at the mouth of the Ochlockonee and Panacea channel using Gulp or cut bait on the bottom. Quite a few bull reds are also being caught. It doesnt seem to matter where you go, the shing is good, excellent or fantastic. They say lots of big bull reds are being caught at Bob Sikes Cut. The bay is full of silver trout and speckled trout and lots of Spanish are being caught along the beaches. Fishing around Keaton Beach continues to be good and lots of big trout are being caught on live pin sh, top water baits and the Gulp. Fish are moving up in the creeks around the Suwannee and some big trout to 7 pounds are being caught. I took a couple of guys today from Jasper, Ga., who typically sh around Horseshoe Beach and typically using top water or grubs. Theyre gonna be here a week and wanted to get a lay of the land. The wind blew about 20 all day and this morning you could have plated corn on the ats it was so dry. They were a little intimidated by all the oyster bars and I told them that at least they could see them. By this afternoon youre not gonna know theyre out there. They had never used live shrimp and I asked if they wanted to catch sh or just sh. Despite the windy conditions we had a good day and they said tomorrow they were gonna be taking live shrimp with them. Arti cial catches a lot of sh but its hard for them to turn down a live shrimp. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing! Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsShoot Like a Girl training at the WCSO RangeNovember is here and the shing is still goodBy MARJ LAWWho is this girl and what is she doing? Shes a member of Shoot Like a Girl. Shoot Like a Girl is a group of women interested in learning about rearms and rearms safety. We meet at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce Range every Wednesday morning from about 9 until around noon. We practice shooting our handguns and we help each other remember Range rules. Often Lt. Boonie Mitchell or Sgt. Dale Evans give us pointers, reminders, and give us some basic training so we are safer and more pro cient at the Range. Last Wednesday, we had further training from Michael Nappi, who is a certi ed NRA instructor and has a wealth of teaching and training background. Michael had visited a couple times on our Wednesday mornings. One morning, at the Range of ce, he offered a free class to enhance our basic skills. He asked Sgt. Dale, who was manning the office, if we could use the law enforcement training side of the pistol range for this purpose. Sgt. Dale immediately supported the suggestion by saying he would waive the usual training grounds fee for us. Although we had been shooting for quite a while, Michael began with some real basics by teaching us how to breathe, how to hold the pistol, and how to squeeze, not yank, the trigger. Didnt we know how to breathe already? Guess not! Take two deep breaths and let the second one out slowly. Shoot a couple rounds while letting out that slow breath, then take several breaths. I was surprised that breathing in this manner actually improves concentration and control of the gun. We learned how to carry loaded guns. OK, practically everyone can carry a gun. But can everyone carry a gun safely? We learned a proper way to carry both a semi-automatic and a revolver. Michael showed us several ways to stand while shooting. If you ever visit the range, youll see many stances. We learned about accuracy; and practice is the only way to acquire that. We learned the difference between the commands Load and Load and Make Ready. We learned to tilt the gun when loading and unloading. Our Wednesday morning class with Michael Nappi was lled with so much information, Im glad I wrote a lot of it down. I want to remember and to practice while its still fresh in my mind. Or on the paper. And what is that girl doing? Shes shooting behind a barrier. To do this, you scootch a bit, keeping as much of yourself as possible behind the barrier. So, shes scootching. We shot behind one barrier, using our dominant hand. Then, much harder, we shot behind another barrier using our non-dominant hand. It took me a moment to rethink gripping a gun when using the wrong hand. We gals really appreciated Michael coming out to enhance our shooting skills, and the Sheriffs Office for supporting our group on a regular basis. Any gal who is interested in joining Shoot Like a Girl is welcome to come to the WCSO Range on Wednesday mornings between 9 and noon. We usually do lunch afterwards. It improves our accuracy.Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 Page 5B This past Saturday members of Flotilla 12 met for our November meeting. This was an important meeting as we elect our leadership for the coming year. In addition to our 15 members including Fran Keating, Mark Rosen, Gary Owens, Terry Hoxworth, Carolyn Treadon, Dave Rabon, Phil Hill, Terry Donohue, Geoff Gonzales, Raye Crews, Larry Kolk, Rich Rasmussen, Tim Ashley, Bob Asztalos, Bill Wannall, Duane Treadon and Norma Hill we had a visitor from District 7. Clifford Holensworth was in town for the FSU-Miami game and stopped in for our meeting. He is the Flotilla Staff Of cer for Information Services and Communication Services and the Division 7 Assistant Staff Of cer for Information Services. Clifford was visiting from Flotilla 72 in St Petersburg. We were also lucky to have Division Commander-elect Eric DeVuyst and Division Vice Commander elect TJ Del Bello join us for the meeting. After introductions and standing business, we held our elections. Duane Treadon was re-elected as Flotilla Commander for next year. Fran Keating was elected for Flotilla Vice Commander for next year. Congratulations to both! Following the elections, both were administered the oath of of ce by Division Commander elect Eric DeVuyst. Before closing the meeting, several awards were presented: Fran Keating received her Vessel Examiner quali cation, Bob Asztalos received his instructor qualification and his third sustained service award, Larry Kolk received his seventh sustained service award, Carolyn Treadon received her ninth sustained service award, and Raye Crews receive a century club award for completing 100 vessel exams and/ or program visits this year. This is a prestigious award, and the rst one received in our otilla Bravo Zulu, Raye! Following awards, out Division Commander elect discussed his vision for the coming year. He identi es several areas he intends to focus on including increasing the enthusiasm and fun of auxiliary membership as well as being able to retain members while recruiting new ones. Members of Flotilla 12 received a great compliment from Eric, who said our flotilla feels more like a family than an organization. Vice Division Commander elect TJ Del Bello discussed his role in also helping members nd meaningful engagement in the auxiliary through increased training opportunities as well as developing a system of support for otilla staff of cers and members. Following the business meeting, our Flotilla Staff Officer for Diversity Geoff Gonzales presented a Diversity Training. Each member present was asked to identity what led them to join the Auxiliary. Through a discussion, several common reasons emerged: to increase boating knowledge, give back to the community and a desire to be out on the water and an opportunity to be around others who had common interests. Our discussions focused on all the varying qualities each of us bring to the otilla as well as the ability to recognize diversity in others. We have an upcoming safe boating class on Nov. 23. If you are interested in attending, please contact our Flotilla Staff Officer for Public Education Alexander Gulde at fso-pe@ uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at FC@uscgaux.net. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www. uscgaux.net for membership information or contact our Flotilla Staff Officer for Human Resources Fran Keating at firstname.lastname@example.org or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at FC@ uscgaux.net.

Wakulla Diving has expanded into the Caribbean, opening an opportunity for local divers to travel outside Wakulla County. I visited one of three Dutch Antilles Islands, once called the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao). My trip to Curacao was, in part, to present a paper on our teams investigative capability on diving fatalities at the American Academy of Underwater Sciences. I was also invited to work with the University of the Andes to dive into the twilight zone, the Mesophotic Zone, to depths between 50 meters and 150 meters (150 to 400 feet). And lastly, I went to see if the reefs of the south Caribbean Sea are similar to our Florida reefs. To meet all these objectives, I took a new recreational rebreather as a carry-on in a backpack. Transit down through Customs and Immigration went smoothly from Tallahassee through Miami and straight to Curacao in one day. I noticed as we approached the Island that the reefs drop off very fast and close to the shore. Wakulla County, in contrast, has a lengthy shelf that extends 50-60 miles offshore before reaching this twilight zone. We require expensive boats, fuel and time to reach these depths. We all met up at the Carmabi Marine Lab just south of Williamsted, their largest city. We located the only other rebreather diver on the Island, Bernardo van Hoof, who provided us with cylinders, oxygen, trimix and nitrox for the week. We con gured equipment in the morning and attended the conference in the afternoon. By day three we made our rst morning dive, for almost three hours by stepping off the Lab porch and into the ocean through a short beach. Within minutes we were at 120 feet, where we conducted training drills until lunch time. With the conference over the next day, we launched dives to 200 feet at several beaches north of the Lab. We drove a car to the beach, strapped on the rebreather and bailout cylinders, and within seven minutes, were at 200 feet (unreal conditions!). After some drills, we began surveying sh populations on our way up the slope. The corals were lush soft and hard corals. We were so engrossed in these dives we missed the sunset and exited in full darkness to a bright shoreline. At dive 5 we made a dive on the Superior Producer shipwreck located at 110 feet next to the wharves of Williamsted. The wreck sank in the 1970s with a full complement of rum in small bottles. Today, empty bottles are scattered about the rather large now gutted hull. We ended the project with seven dives, at the west end of the island, again to 200 feet and again with sh surveys for almost 4 hours bottom time. Yes, the reefs are healthy and abundant in the south Caribbean, many of the species are the same and offer a wonderful experience for both the traveler and diving scientist. The ight to Miami was uneventful. But after customs, several of us were ushered out of the transient secured area and out onto the curb in Miami. Airport hotels were booked up. While we were on the curb, we were treated by the police like vagrants, told we must move along and not sleep. Everyone was exhausted by their return from the Caribbean and confused about the new policy. At 5 a.m., we got in to nd a TSA agent had been shot in Los Angeles. I think the TSA panicked across the country. I guess air travel has many adventures, some great and some problematic.

Page 12B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 7, 2013 thewakullanews.comBy LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsTake a globe. Place a finger on Crawfordville. Turn the globe to the opposite side. There, just above Australia, below the Asian continent, is paradise Bali, Indonesia. Enjoy golden sunsets, gentle tropical breezes, exotic temples and warm, friendly people. For $50 per day you can splurge on a private driver. The roads are jammed with scooters and traf c does not run at a Zen pace, so this is your best bet. When you reach Ubud, enjoy the relaxed flow while you peruse boutiques and art galleries. Eating is an adventure in open-air restaurants, called warungs, serving $2 dishes from a tiny hibachi. Made from chopped peppers, garlic, and local spices, tastes rival those found in ve star hotels. Nasi goreng and mie goreng, slow-cooked, tender pork resting atop a bed of tasty noodles, or spicy rice, are a staple. In tourist areas images on the menu offer clues to what you are ordering. The Hindu culture is thousands of years old, and monumental temples nestle among rice patties and verdant jungle. Dressed in white and bound for local temples, processions of worshipers frequently pass by with offerings atop their heads. More offerings; miniature hand woven plates ornamented with ower blossoms, tiny crackers and bits of candy, adorn storefronts, appear in cars, and rest alongside burning incense at family temples. Explore Balis four outstanding temples. In the north Ulu Danu sits beside Lake Bratan, while Besakih Temple is perched high in the mountains. In the south, Tanah Lot Temple is accessible only at low tide, and at dusk Uluwatu Temple creates postcard like sunset pictures. At the Monkey Forest adorable baby monkeys chatter at you, and families of monkeys wander by. Be prepared, they think nothing of climbing on you, and stealing anything they can get their hands on. If you buy bananas to feed them, expect an onslaught. In the National Park, cruise over to Menjangen Island for the best snorkeling. Drift in the warm swells and watch the profusion of exotic marine life it between the coral heads. Its like the most exotic sh tank you can imagine, but on a life-sized scale. Swim with the molamola sh at Nusa Lembongen. At a weight of 2,000 pounds, and with a height of 8 feet, its a once-in-a-lifetime experience. For beach lovers, lounge at Blue Lagoon Beach, where the coral is only a short swim away. Want to indulge? Splurge on one of the many ve star properties in southern Bali Hyatt, Marriott, and Bulgari, topend chains have impressive properties to choose from. Luxuriate on your spacious balcony. Let the tranquil Balinese music wash over you. Soar above the ocean on a parachute, zip across the waves on your wave runner, or better yet, do nothing at all. Balis peak season is from Dec. 24 through Jan. 5, and high season runs from July 1 through Sept. 30. Arrive at any time thats not peak you can generally negotiate halfoff activities. Expect to negotiate. Yet its all done with a spirit of accommodation without the raised voices or posturing of some cultures. Youll get used to it and it will become second nature. Memories of your trip will last forever.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.
