By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netAccording to an investigation report obtained by The News on Monday, Nov. 18, FDLE found no evidence which would indicate that voters were discriminated against on the basis of race or otherwise systematically denied access to the polls during the June 11 Sopchoppy city election. The outcome of the election resulted in then-mayor Colleen Skipper-Mitchell losing by one vote and Anginita Rosiers loss by 26. The report identi es ve election fraud complaints filed by Anginita Rosier, Colleen Skipper-Mitchell, Thomas Bruce Rosier, Willie Mae Stevens and Wilton Thomas Booth Sr. Three of the five complaints alleged that voter suppression and discrimination occurred during their visit to the polling station. In the case of Thomas Bruce Rosier, the report found that he was denied the ability to vote after poll workers determined that his current address, which was different from the one on the drivers license, was outside of Sopchoppy city limits. FDLE looked into Stevens complaint that she was challenged on her right to vote in the election due to her address. The report found that upon her arrival, Stevens showed identi cation and voter registration, both of which re ected an address outside of city limits. After a concern was raised by poll workers, Stevens claimed she currently resided within the city limits, but that she couldnt recollect her address information. In an effort to allow her to vote, the report states, workers took time to locate her current address through other means. Once her information was found, Stevens was allowed to vote. Booth alleged that he was discriminated against in that he was only allowed to vote by provisional ballot, which was ultimately not counted. However, FDLE found that Booth gave con icting addresses one, which is located outside of city limits and another, which the property appraisers of ce determined wasnt an existing address. The report states that Booth questioned his eligibility because he receives city sewer service and assumed he lived inside the citys limits. More extensive allegations came from former city commissioners Rosier and Skipper-Mitchell. Rosier alleged the mishandling of absentee ballots, voter suppression and canvassing board irregularities. She also alleged that Commissioners Lara Edwards and Martha Evans campaigned for the winning candidates, Eddie Evans, Nathan Lewis and Glenn Rudd. Skipper-Mitchell alleged voter suppression, violation of election laws and mishandling of absentee ballots. She also alleged that citizens reported to her that she would not be re-elected because City Clerk Jackie Lawhon had mishandled absentee ballots.Turn to Page 2A H e a r t s G o n e W i l d f o r F l o r i d a Hearts Gone Wild for Florida Wild Mammal Association W a k u l l a s o l d e s t v o t e r Wakullas oldest voter Public Notices .................................................................Page 3A Street Beat ......................................................................Page 3A The Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Church.............................................................................Page 5A Obituaries .......................................................................Page 6A Community .....................................................................Page 7A School .............................................................................Page 8A In The Huddle .................................................................Page 9A Outdoors .....................................................................Page 10A Water Ways ..................................................................Page 11A Weekly Roundup ..........................................................Page 12A Sheriffs Report ............................................................Page 13A Natural Wakulla ............................................................Page 14A Arts & Entertainment .......................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla ..............................................................Page 2B Thinking Outside the Book ..............................................Page 3B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 4B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 4B Comics .............................................................................Page 7B Red Clay Footprints .........................................................Page 8B INDEX OBITUARIES Lillie Brackin Evans Richard Joe Hodge Eli Pave Roberts Rachel Lynn Smith Arena Jane Willis No evidence of voter fraud in Sopchoppy newsThe WakullaBut candidate indicates other investigations also underway T w o S e c t i o n s Two Sections 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y R e a d D a i l y Published Weekly, Read Daily Our 118th Year, 46th Issue Thursday, November 21, 2013News will be out early next weekHarden is new commission chairmanBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netBeginning Dec. 9, Wakulla County will have a new Board of County Commission chairman and vice chair. At the board meeting on Nov. 18, Commissioner Jerry Moore wasted no time in offering his motion that Commissioner Richard Harden the boards current vice-chairman be nominated for the Chairman position and that Commissioner Ralph Thomas be selected as the boards new vice chairman. Moores motion was seconded by Harden, which opened up the topic for discussion. Commissioner Howard Kessler who, minutes before had presented an item proposing that the board hold a workshop to discuss the countys senior citizens and senior center and what the board can do to help in light of budget cuts and other obstacles. One of Wakullas most valuable assets is our senior citizens, said Kessler. They have contributed beyond their fair share to our communitys economic and social well-being a debt that is more than we can ever hope to return. Because of that, and the recent decrease in funding at the federal, state and local levels, Kessler said, the workshop would try to identify areas where budget allocations might be realigned in an effort to help them nancially. But his request for a workshop died for a lack of a second. When it came time to vote for the boards new of cers, Kessler explained why he would be voting against the motion.

Commissioner Howard Kessler, who brought Roddenberrys feat to the boards attention last month, said that he came across the information while working with Wakullas registered voter list during his wetlands petition drive efforts. Something else that Kessler said he thought was interesting was that there are two other residents Myrtle Langston and Eloise Strickland who are both also over 100 years old and all three live in Sopchoppy. Something that struck me about Mrs. Roddenberry, Kessler said, is that she exhibits a sharp sense of humor. Kessler told the story about how, when he mentioned to Roddenberry some weeks back that she was the oldest county resident she was surprised at rst. Is that right? she had asked. Then after a pause, Is there any money in it? But the audience didnt have to take Kesslers word for it Monday night as, when Roddenberry was presented with a plaque, she induced laughter by asking commissioners, Now do I get to keep this or do you? followed by, Dont let me drop it now. Commissioner Richard Harden also offered a few words about his friend. I have known Mrs. Lottie Roddenberry my entire life, he said. One thing that has always impressed me is her sharp mind shes 103, but can still tell you stories about what she did when she was 10. Roddenberry, who was accompanied by her son, Robert Roddenberry, was quick to thank the board for the recognition. Next weeks issue of The Wakulla News will be the annual issue delivered free to every home in the county and the surrounding area. The newspaper, which will be dated Nov. 27, will be printed early, so most in-county subscribers should receive The News on Wednesday instead of Thursday just in time for Black Friday retail sales and Saturdays Shop Small, Shop Local.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net Wakullas Tourist Development Council, together with local photographers Lou and Betsy Kellenberger, are working on something new in an effort to grow an existing, yet unfed industry in Wakulla. I think bird watching is an underserved population right now, said Wakulla Springs Park Manager Pete Scalco. In hopes of increasing tourism in the area, at least in the winter months, the TDC plans to do something about that. The Kellenbergers have offered to coordinate a media and writing tour event in early to mid January focused solely on the countys ample opportunity for bird watching. According to discussion at the TDCs meeting on Thursday, Nov. 14, the aim is to invite writers from around the region who will be guided by a few of the areas well known birders and experts in the eld from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The goal being that through hosting regional writers and providing them with the necessary information, expertise and photographs, that they would then produce copy in their respective niches which will help Wakulla draw in visitors who are interested in bird watching. We are seeing increasing activity all the time out at the St. Marks refuge, Lou Kellenberger said. I think we need to coordinate and take advantage of what is already building. According to members of the TDC, this event will hopefully create a basis for which to begin to build and establish an annual bird watching festival in early 2015. A preliminary number of writers to be invited ranged from 3-6, although TDC Chairman David Moody seemed to think it worth the TDCs time and resources. I would like to see all six positions lled, he said. The council approved a tentative budget of no more than $4,999 to be spent on the project. In other matters before the TDC: The recently acquired $25,000 in grant funding by the Healing Hearts of Wakulla County for a photography project aimed at documenting and showcasing the countys shing heritage has begun. Nine local photographers have been selected: Brett Allbritton Mickey Cantner Katie Deal Betsy Kellenberger Lou Kellenberger Lynda Kinsey JoAnn Palmer Robert Seidler Mark Wallheiser They will produce up to 45 pictures total of local shermen, their faces, boats, moorings and whatever else helps to capture the richness of the countys shing heritage. One of the aims being that the project, once nished and publicized, will inspire visitors to come see for themselves what is depicted in the collection of photographs. That project, called Wakullas Working Waterfronts, is expected to wrap up in March 2014. Also, discussion was held on obtaining a new council member in place of Sherrie Miller, who has served the extent of her term. The TDC plans to advertise for the position in the near future. Chairman David Moody also announced his desire for someone on the council to take over as chairman as he is seeing an increase in responsibilities at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge where he works and, therefore, a decrease in his time and availability. Ill bring us through the winter, he said, but I would like to see someone step up for this role. The TDCs new director, Sam Martin, reported on his recent trip to Steinhatchee for the October Original Florida strategic planning retreat a group composed of representatives of organizations like Wakullas TDC. Martin reported that the group focused on workshopping where the regions tourism was and what they planned to do about it. The group, according to Martin, would also like to see the name Original Florida changed to Natural North Florida, and that one goal for the upcoming year is to help RV parks in the area. Im not quite sure on the breadth of that, Martin said. Well be discussing more during our next meeting. That meeting will occur on Nov. 21 and will be hosted this time by Wakulla County at the Wakulla Springs Lodge. In an effort to spend the funding received from the Gulf States Promotional Grant by the extension date of June 30, 2014, the TDC has executed two new contracts in an effort to build a new website and fill it with content that will be reached by potential visitors. NXC, a company based in Washington, D.C., has been chosen to help build a destination management system a system which will upgrade the countys exposure on the web. A contract with NXC has been executed, according to discussion between members, although a meeting needs to be held in order to determine exactly what the scope of work will be in accordance with the RFP that was issued. Another contract, with a company based in Texas called Simpleview, has been obtained for their help in lling the website with graphics and creative marketing content that will be conducive for search engine optimization.TDC aims to promote bird watching in WakullaFrom Page 1AHowever, in both complaints made by Skipper-Mitchell and Rosier, the report states that FDLE questioned all parties involved including Lawhon and members of the canvassing board and found no indication of corruption and that all absentee ballots had been documented and accounted for.Furthermore, the report states that the FDLE investigation did, in fact, identify several incidents during which elections of cials took extra steps to ensure that every voter whose voter status was in question was given an opportunity to vote. Comments from Rosier indicate that there are investigations other than the one performed by FDLE that are looking at different aspects of the complaints that were led. FDLE only looked into the criminal aspects of the complaints, she said. They didnt address the civil rights or election violations. There are different entities conducting those investigations. Rosier said she is waiting to hear back from those sources on their findings and that she is not sure at this time when those reports will be nished. Rosier also stated that the issue has not gone away. Just because FDLE is done with their portion, doesnt mean this matter is done with, she said. Lawhon was unavailable for comment.No evidence of voter fraud Before campaign season heats up, the Election ofce is offering a candidate workshop. Voters interested in running for public ofce can learn what it takes to become a candidate.

LOCAL NEWS The Wakulla Newswww.thewakullanews.com < STREET BEAT > Random, man-on-the-street interviews with Wakulla Countians. This week's question: What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?SAEEDEH POSEY Photographic designer My husband is a wonderful man, weve been together for 25 years and we are still in love.

Particularly the salvation God gave me through Jesus Christ His son. Compiled by Lynda Kinsey From Page 1AI think this board has really stooped to a level of civility and cooperation that I havent seen in the years that I have been on this board, he said. To not second a workshop or at least hold discussion I would never vote against a workshop. So, thats the reason that I wont be voting for this. The board voted 4-1 for its new of cers, who will be installed at the next board meeting. Later, Harden offered his reasoning for not seconding the motion. Im very supportive of the senior center, he said. I pledged to give my salary increase to the Meals on Wheels program and have made good on that promise. However, he said that the organization has its own council in place to address those issues and that he didnt think that Kessler was giving them enough credit. I dont see a need for a workshop or a duplication of their efforts, Harden said. I think they are well equipped to do that themselves. Kessler responded by saying that he had met with senior citizens and the senior centers director, Maurice Langston, in the past. I think the board is lacking in discussion not only with the senior center but senior citizens themselves, he said. We just missed an opportunity here. In other matters before the board: County commissioners conducted two public hearings pertaining to code enforcement ordinance amendments. The rst hearing was for the removal of language in Chapter 8 of the countys code of ordinances, which provides for the automatic foreclosure on properties that present a threat to public safety, health or welfare. The change allows the county to go in and rectify the situation, putting any costs obtained during cleanup on the propertys next tax bill. This would happen after allowing a period of 10 days for the property owner to either appeal to the code enforcement board or clean up the property themselves. County Attorney Heather Encinosa explained the reason being that the county is trying to cut off the accumulation of nes which, in the past, have accrued to astronomical and unmanageable amounts. The second hearing that the board held was for the adoption of an ordinance, which allows for the implementation of the item. It was announced that Chairman Randy Merritt has been named Chairman of the Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency. The organization is comprised of representatives from Gadsden, Leon, Jefferson and Wakulla counties. According to Administrator Edwards presentation, Merritt is the rst and only Wakulla County elected of cial to serve as the agencys chairman. This is very important and a great honor for our county, Edwards said. This will help distribute DOT dollars to our county and for the rst time he will be able to have discussions within the CRTPA on how DOT can help our county.Harden is new commission chairman ADVERTISING DETAIL NOVEMBER 21, 2013 NOTICE OF INTENT NOVEMBER 14, 21, 28, 2013 DECEMBER 5, 2013 TO USE UNIFORM METHOD OF COLLECTING NON-AD VALOREM ASSESSMENTS City of Sopchoppy City of Sopchoppy, Florida Notice of Adoption of OrdinanceThe City Commission of the City of Sopchoppy gives notice of its intent to consider the adoption of the following Ordinance: The purpose of the Ordinance is to set a referendum for consideration by the electorate of the City to change the City elections to coincide with the general election cycle.

Page 1 News: Property rights of two realtors, verses the wisdom of 20 who spoke in favor of locally protecting our countys wetlands, convinced commissioners Randy Merrit, Richard Harden, Jerry Moore, and Ralph Thomas to repeal our countys local wetlands, protection ordinance....only Commissioner Howard Kessler voted against the repeal. Page 8 News: Swim rights of every resident of Wakulla County and every $$$ spending tourist, AGAIN lost their right to enjoy the second largest attraction in Wakulla County...our beaches, with ANOTHER Health Department No Swim Advisory. SOON TO BE NEWS: The number one tourist attraction and by far the largest financial benefit to Wakulla County...FISHING...falls victim to the same human caused water pollution as our beaches have....as frequently happens with the red tide along southern Floridas beaches. The writing (and money) is clearly in the water. Knox Bagwell Crawfordville Editor, The News: It is deceptive for the wetlands alliance to be continually implying that wetlands will be destroyed if the county ordinance is not forever perpetuated as it is now written. This group is filled with what ifs and doom and gloom and encourages us to think that there is no protection if wetland protection falls under state law. This is a blatant disregard for the truth. In addition, layer upon layer of government is cumbersome, unproductive and expensive. I, for one, do not want my Wakulla County tax money going to settle lawsuits, pay for property settlements, or going to a tourism department that continually says we rely on tourism for our economy when everyone knows we are primarily a Tallahassee bedroom community. How can anyone say tourism and shing have been doing so well under our current wetlands ordinance when we have empty hotels and restaurants, closed up storefronts, foreclosed homes, and no industry that normally would attract business traf c? Finally, the best buffer for our wetlands is FEMA and their ood insurance hikes. Who can afford to get a coastal mortgage? Neither the state law nor the Wakulla ordinance is keeping building at bay it is the cost of living in a ood zone and that is the great wetland buffer. James Grey Crawfordville Editor, The News: On behalf of the Rotary Club of Wakulla, we want to thank everyone who came out to join us in honoring Noah Posey with our 2013 Distinguished Citizens Award. The event recognized Noah for his outstanding community service, leadership and his benevolence. The Posey family has been in business in Wakulla County for over 20 years and has had an impact on this county. Noah was instrumental in helping Lt. Mike Stewart establish the NJROTC Program at the high school, which is one of the premier programs in our state. Through the commitment of the booster association and the donations from Noah, more than $240,000 has been raised for that program. This fundraising enables the cadets to travel to important trainings events free of nancial stress on their families. Other organizations that bene t locally from the Posey commitment are Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend, the Wakulla Senior Center and most recently, Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, Southern Chapter. Former Sheriff David Harvey told stories of his years of knowing Noah but would not discuss any good secrets. Bill Versiga, President of the Coastal Optimist Club told about how Noah got him to join that club 35 years ago and the experiences in raising funds which are given back to this community. Dr. Bernie Sloan told of how Noah makes breakfast every morning and what a great cook he is, especially making homemade biscuits. I said I wanted to learn that skill! Thanks to the remarkable support, Rotary is honored to be presenting a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving senior member of the Wakulla High School Interact Club which will be named in Noahs honor. Rotary meets every Thursday at noon at the Wakulla Senior Center. Please join us. Jo Ann Palmer Rotary Club Immediate Past President By MIKE PRUITTFestival ChairmanWe want to thank you for attending the St. Marks Stone Crab Festival the annual family event held each October in St. Marks, where we celebrate the opening of stone crab season. The St. Marks Stone Crab Festival is the place to be when our local shermen bring home this delicious delicacy, the stone crab claws for our enjoyment. This year was another wonderful event as we all dined on lots of fresh seafood along with other great foods and snacks. Handmade arts and crafts of many descriptions were also available. All day entertainment included live music, singing and dancing for all ages. We also celebrated VIVA Florida 500 with a colorful Conquistador Parade with marching bands, period costumes and our own Stone Crab Queen in costume leading the parade. I want thank the St. Marks Stone Crab Festival Committee who work tirelessly all year to make this event successful. Also, a special thank you to our sponsors, businesses, organizations and volunteers who make this event possible. Finally, a big thank you to the people who made the trip to St. Marks, The Ultimate Getaway for 500 Years to share this fun family day with us. Nearby our second event taking place was the International Archaeology Day at Fort San Marcos De Apalache Historic State Park in celebration of our 500 years of Florida history. The fort provided a tram to shuttle between the festival and the fort, which provided ease of movement for visitors. Tours of the fort and historical archaeology information was passed on by several archaeologists for the entertainment of history buffs. The Fort San Marcos De Apalache Historic State Park staff wants to thank you for attending this special VIVA Florida 500 anniversary celebration. Come visit your fort anytime as we continue to celebrate VIVA Florida 500. Another fun event was going on at the same time tagging of migrating Monarch butter ies at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge while learning about landscaping and planting to help all pollinators including the Monarch butter y. The 25th annual Monarch Butter y Festival celebrates the Monarch butter ies endeavor to make their 2,000 mile trip from the northern American boundary to the mountains of central Mexico. With fall in the air, folks of all ages were there to view this phenomenon which typically begins about the third week of October. We still have a lot to see, so make plans to visit the national wildlife refuge between now and the next season of wild owers and butter ies. Food, fun, history and nature are in abundance in the St. Marks area and you are invited to come and enjoy at any time not just a stone crab time. We are sincerely grateful for your support and participation,Mike Pruitt is chairman of the St. Marks Stone Crab Festival Committee.Editor, The News: No one likes to think about death and dying, but its something everyone has to face eventually. Theres an incredible resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all those coping with a serious or life-limiting illness. Its Big Bend Hospice. November is National Hospice Palliative Care Month, a time to reach out to our community to raise awareness about the compassionate care that hospice and palliative care provide to patients and their families. One of the most important messages to help people understand is that hospice care and palliative care helps patients and families focus on living. The Big Bend Hospice team of Wakulla County provides expert medical care to keep patients comfortable and able to enjoy time with loved ones. The hospice team answers questions, offers advice on what to expect, and helps families with the duties of being a caregiver. The team also provides emotional and spiritual support for the entire family. Hospice Medicare and Medicaid cover 100 percent of the cost of the approved treatments and services related to the terminal illness. Hospice is covered by most insurance plans and HMOs. Thanks to community support, no one is ever refused Big Bend Hospice services because of inability to pay. Hospice care is available to people of all ages, with any illness. Hospice professionals and trained volunteers will ask you whats important and listen to what you say. They make your wishes a priority. If you or a loved one is facing a serious or life-limiting illness, the time to nd out more about hospice and palliative care is right now. Regina Compton, RN, BSN, CHPN Senior Team Manager Wakulla/Franklin Big Bend Hospice Editor, The News: My family recently went through a permitting process with the Wakulla County Building Department. I would like to convey my sincere thanks for the courteous service and patient guidance of those employees during the permiting process.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR Let the holiday season beginBy JAMES L. SNYDERThis is the time of the year holidays get into full steam. It begins with Halloween when people put on a scary face and ends with New Years day when people put on a new face. I could never gure out if the Halloween face was the New Years Day face just that much older. I do not have much time for Halloween. Since the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has put me on a strict diet that does not include candy, what is the purpose of going out on Halloween night begging for candy? It seems rather interesting that our holiday season starts out with people going around door-to-door begging for candy and ends New Years Day making resolutions not to eat any more candy this year. I love all of the ingredients making up our holiday season whether it is Halloween candy or Thanksgiving turkey or New Years Day pork and sauerkraut. These traditions that center on eating are right up my alley. If the alley is dark enough, my wife will not catch me in the act. One ingredient I really do not appreciate during the holiday season are all the grouches and complainers and sourpuss people who insist on trying to take the fun out of my holiday time. On the one hand, you have those who pretend they do not believe in God and yet during this time of the year they get all bent out of shape by the mere mention of God. They nervously say they do not believe in God and yet my belief in God threatens them somehow. If they really did not believe in God they would not care one way or the other if somebody was stupid enough to believe in God. They would just sit back in their rocking chair smiling at the poor fools who go through the holiday season thanking God and celebrating the birth of Jesus on Christmas day. For instance, I do not believe in the tooth fairy. I think it is the figment of someones imagination and nothing exists that in any way resembles the tooth fairy. Yet, that is not the center of my life going around trying to prove there is no such thing as a tooth fairy. How do you explain to a child the money under his pillow after placing his extracted tooth? Perhaps another illustration would be Halloween. I do not believe in ghosts, goblins and all of the stupidity invested in this kind of a holiday. Yet, my whole life is not focused around trying to disprove ghosts and goblins. If somebody wants to believe in ghosts and goblins, what is that to me? I do not believe there was ever such a creature as Rudolph the red nose reindeer. Somebody made that up to go along with the Christmas story. I do not think Santa Claus ever existed. Not all the stories I have read about Santa Claus has ever convinced me such a person existed. Yet, I do not spend the whole holiday season ranting and raving trying to disprove Rudolph the red nose reindeer and his master St. Nicholas. If somebody wants to believe in Santa Claus and his reindeer and that Rudolph the red nose reindeer saved Christmas one year, what is that to me? I say let people indulge in these marvelous little fantasies. I cannot tell you how many years I sat on Santa Claus lap and to this day, nothing I asked for has ever come my way via Christmas. Yet, this Christmas I will take my grandchildren to the mall and have them sit on Santa Clauss lap and tell him what they want for Christmas. Believing in the mall Santa Claus is pure fantasy. Yet, I am not going to picket the mall around Christmas time demanding they do away with the mall Santa Claus. After all, Santa Claus in the mall brings customers to the mall. Many fantasies I do not put any trust in, but I do not build my life around destroying these fantasies other people enjoy. I do not recall how old I was when I found out that Santa Claus was just a fictional character that made Christmas something of a fantasy. Even though I discovered that Santa Claus was not real I found myself as a father telling the Santa Claus story to my children and then later to my grandchildren. Some of these people attacking the holiday season, including the Christmas tree, are just indicating that somewhere along the line they have not grown up. If they do not believe in the holiday season, particularly Christmas, then let us who love the holiday season, especially Christmas, enjoy it. I advise those who do not enjoy the holiday season to go up to Western Pennsylvania, find Punxsutawney Phil and spend the winter with him. We will be sure to look for you come spring. I like how the apostle Paul put it. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things (1 Corinthians 13:10). Some people, I am not mentioning who, need to just grow up and stop acting so childish. I will celebrate the holiday season for the simple reason that Gods amazing grace has brought me through another year..Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Apostle Tony Sanders will be presiding. Charlottes Faith is located at 150 Brown Donaldson Road. Bishop Alice Williams is pastor. Everyone is invited.Church BriefsBy ETHEL SKIPPER Christians have long agreed that the Lord has called the church to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to all people, everywhere. In fact, some believers have even stated that when the church abdicates this responsibility, it ceases to be the church. It has forfeited the reason for its existence. We can nd guidance for this task in various Biblical passages. In the Book of Matthew, chapter 10, Jesus commissions and instructs his disciples for their mission to the people of Israel. Just as he commissioned his preachers and church leaders to proclaim the gospel, Christians are commissioned to let the world know the kingdom of God is at hand. In your everyday living, be that example. Although we are centuries removed from the original setting of this discourse, we can glean numerous insights as we also seek to obey Christs commission to proclaim the good news of the kingdom. After calling his 12 disciples and giving them authority over unclean spirits, and all disease, heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out devils, giving freely as God has given to them. We can do greater works as He leads us. Let us reach out and pray for all those who are sick and shut-in, in the hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, and all in need of prayer all over this world. Let us pray for our schools, the youth of our county, and teach them no one can keep you from keeping a daily prayer in your heart. Happy belated birthday to Roosevelt Ross on Nov. 1.
Page 6A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comEli Pave Roberts, 94, passed away on Nov. 11, 2013 in Tallahassee. He was born in Sopchoppy on Sept. 6, 1919, to Vassie Chason Roberts and Obadiah Kelson Roberts. He was predeceased by his wife of 45 years, Doris Ragans Roberts.He was the third of seven children, survived by his younger brother Tommy Edwin Roberts of Tallahassee. His youth was spent in Sopchoppy. From the beginning, his work ethic proved to be strong. Following the sudden death of his Father at the young age of 12, Eli and his older brother, Laurice, had no choice but to leave school and begin fulltime work to support their mother and siblings. The great depression had engulfed the country and at the age of 14 he began working in Roosevelts work program known as the CCC. This federal program primarily built roads, infrastructure and privies in Wakulla County. He was one of the rst soldiers selected for service from Wakulla County; in 1941 he began serving in the Air Force during World War II. Upon returning home, he married the love of his life, Doris Ragans Roberts in 1949, and was soon blessed with two sons, Charles and later Dennis. In 1952, he realized his childhood dream of owning his first service station. His three-bay Sinclair station was located at 609 West Tennessee Street. Eli enjoyed driving by this property almost daily, proud in the fact that where it all began is still prospering today as the Tomahawk Grill. In 1958, through hard work and determination, Eli and Doris were selected by Sinclair Oil Company to be the local consignee. In 1962, Doriss Brother Jimmy moved to Tallahassee, and partnered to create Ragans and Roberts Tire which became the largest dealership in north Florida. Through the years, his life was blessed with the deep satisfaction of watching his family and business prosper, great health, and a strong zest for life. Survivors include his brother, Tommy Edwin Roberts (Bettye) of Tallahassee; two sons, Charles Roberts (Pam) of Tallahassee, Dennis Roberts (Nyla) of St. George, Utah; and seven grandchildren, Josh, Clayton, Brandon, (Julianna ) Jordan, Jessie, Tim and Hanna.

She is a courageous woman of strength, loyalty, and sacri ce. She lives in a very small town where everyone knows everyone, and everyone knows your business. She is a daughter in a rather large family. Both of her parents are in the same nursing home together. They share a great love for each other and their daughter respects that. She gets up every morning and goes to the nursing home to care for her parents. She washes them, she feeds them, she takes them for outings, and most of all, she loves them. At the end of the day, when all is quiet, my friend carries home her parents laundry. She painstakingly washes their laundry, and returns to the nursing home the next day, with fresh linens and undies for her dear mom and dad. From the depth of her soul, she is committed to her parents. To their dying day, she sacri ces and cares for their every need. The interesting part of this story though, is yet to be told. My dear friend lives in a town where her siblings also live. Her father passed last year and my dear friend took care of every detail for his service. She made arrangements for her dear mother to attend, and she ensured the comfort of all friends and family attending. I read a message today on Facebook. Paraphrasing it said, Recovery from the loss of a loved one is like learning how to dance with a limp. This is so true. Recovery from the loss of someone we love so dearly, is similar to the recovery of a broken leg. Although the bone mends itself, it is never as it was before. My girlfriends siblings dance through life without a thought or sacri ce for their parents. Nevertheless, my girlfriend sacri ces her days, and even her nights, for her parents. Even in the nal hours of her fathers life, she shielded him from the fear and sadness that weighs so heavily upon her soul. My friend is a devoted daughter. When the day comes that she can dance, I know it will be with a severe, yet well-earned limp.Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer.

Applications will be considered on a first come, rst serve basis. Homebuyer purchase assistance will provide down payment assistance, closing costs and principle reduction to first-time homebuyers that are eligible under the SHIP guidelines. Potential homebuyers will be required to qualify for a mortgage through a nancial institution and may not have claimed homestead exemption in the last three years. Up to $15,000 per unit may be applied towards securing the home and funds will be awarded on a rst come, rst readyto-close basis. All interested persons will need to initially apply or re-apply.

It is a street based program that serves 11-21 years-olds who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, runaways and sex traf cked. Whie the program is based in Leon County, it also works with the 7 surrounding counties with an emphasis on Wakulla, Gadsden and Leon. What most people think about when it comes to street outreach is feeding and clothing the homeless. That isnt far from the truth, except that the outreach does more than that. The program involves a quali ed team of street outreach advocates who search for and develop a relationship with at-risk youth on the streets, in the woods, in the home, in the schools, and in community centers. Once located, they work with youth to establish a relationship and customize a plan speci c to their needs. We locate and offer referrals that provide services with housing, employment, GED/college admissions, survival aid (clothes, gear and hygiene items), identi cation, food stamps, free counseling, and independent living skills to name a few. The outreach is quickly approaching its one year mark as a new program and it has been established that its success is built upon relationships with the professionals and citizens of each county. Going Places Street Outreach is constantly striving to have a presence in the community by being involved in youth coalitions and community events. While this has helped to identify youth who are in need, there are many more we have not yet encountered. If you know of someone or have information regarding youth in need of our services, if you would like to receive more information about the program, or are interested in volunteering please feel free to contact Street Advocates Mike Mincy (850) 274-8689 or Taylor Biro (850) 2946044.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comeducation news from local schools SchoolBy BRANDON LARRABEE THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATeachers' results under a Florida Department of Education formula meant to measure student learning must be released to the public, the 1st District Court of Appeal ruled Tuesday. A unanimous three-judge panel sided with The Florida Times-Union -which had sought the release of the results from the "value added" model -and overturned a Leon County Circuit Court ruling sealing the records. The appeals court rejected arguments by the state and a teachers union that the documents should be exempt under a part of state law that shields teacher evaluations from public view until the end of the following school year. Circuit Judge John Cooper had ruled that, because teacher evaluations are often closely tied to the ndings of the state model, releasing the records would essentially open up evaluations to the public. Cooper ruled that each year's results should not be available to the public for three years. The evaluations are based on three years of data. Under Cooper's ruling, the results each year would have been delayed for three years, until they were no longer in use. So the 2009-10 results, for example, wouldn't have been available until after the 2012-13 school year, instead of being available after 2010-11. The three-year totals would have been available the year after they were used. But the appeals court said Cooper's ruling improperly expanded the personnel exemption. "Had the Legislature wanted any matter material to a teachers evaluation to be exempt from disclosure, the Legislature would have exempted personnel files as a whole," Judge William Van Nortwick wrote for the court. "To the contrary, personnel les of public school teachers are generally subject to disclosure." The dispute is in some ways an outgrowth of the erce battle over a performance-pay law that passed the Legislature in 2011. Teachers unions bitterly opposed the bill, which led to the Department of Education formula to measure student learning. But the Florida Education Association, the largest union, joined the Department of Education in ghting the TimesUnion's request for the records. In a statement following the decision, FEA President Andy Ford urged the public to be careful when considering the results when they were released. Ford said the model is "deeply awed," and that many teachers are no longer evaluated based on test scores because of more recent legislation. The evaluation data on teachers that is about to be made public is meaningless, which is why we joined in to enforce the public records exemption and prevent it from being published," Ford said. "The numbers to be released are subject to misinterpretation. They have not been put in their proper context." A spokesman for the Florida Department of Education said Tuesday afternoon that the agency was still studying the decision.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 Page 9A By TIM LINAFELT In the end, the only noticeable difference in Jameis Winston on Saturday might have been his shirt. Florida States quarterback walked into his usual post-game interview session after the Seminoles 59-3 win wearing his usual suit, tie and sandals combo. This time, though, he apparently didnt have time to tuck in his shirt. Otherwise, thats about it. He flashed his usual smile. He joked about plays that he made and plays that he might catch an earful for in team meetings this week. And, as usual, he de ected praise to his teammates instead of basking in it himself. Its a quarterbacks dream to be out there with those guys, Winston said. One thing about Florida State, were a big family. We stay inside the family. News broke on Wednesday that Winston is tied to a sexual assault investigation stemming from an incident that occurred in December, 2012. His meeting with the media on that day, mere hours after gossip website TMZ reported that he was linked to the investigation, was a stark contrast to Saturday. On Wednesday, he smiled while answering only football-related queries under orders from FSU but it didnt take long for things to become awkward as the obvious questions went unasked. Winston typically has reporters hanging on his every word, and can effortlessly carry a room for 15 or 20 minutes. On Wednesday, his session lasted just ve. The days that followed produced question after question but offered very little in the way of answers. Winston on Saturday produced a very, very small one: Florida States offense is still in very capable hands with him at the helm.The redshirt freshman torched Syracuse for 277 yards and two touchdowns in what has become his usual light workload this time just two quarters. Winston completed his rst 11 passing attempts and nished the day 19 of 21, his most accurate performance since his 25-for-27 debut at Pittsburgh. I thought Jameis played exceptionally well, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. His mind was really in the game. His most impressive moment, though, may have come without the ball in his hands. Early in the rst quarter, Winston handed the ball to speedy freshman Kermit Whit eld, who promptly started right, cut back across the middle and tore down the left sideline with the end zone in his sight. As Syracuse cornerback Julian Whigham sprinted across the field to maybe make a touchdown-saving tackle, No. 5 entered the frame, sprinting and then diving to make a block that ensured Whit elds 74-yard score. Anything for our team to have success, Im down for it, Winston said. You dont really see that out of your quarterback, especially a guy who is in his position, defensive tackleTimmy Jernigan said. A lot of guys that are that good of a player, they dont want to get hurt, dont want to take the chance. It gives you a reason to want to go out and fight for them, get the ball back to him. Fisher talks all the time about eliminating the clutter a fancy way to remind his players to ignore outside distractions. Of course, its one thing to do that when clutter comes in the form of poll jockeying or awards races. The kind of potential distraction that hovered over Tallahassee this week is another matter entirely. And it wont blow over just because FSU blew out yet another hapless ACC opponent. What Winston is facing cant be understated to diminish it by calling it a distraction would be wrong. What happens on the football eld is completely irrelevant compared to the seriousness of what could be life-altering allegations. But the Seminoles are made up of more than just Jameis Winston. And they all showed that, at least on the eld, nothing has changed. By MARTY COHEN Each week, in the aftermath of another Florida loss, there was still a carrot dangling controlling their own destiny in the SEC East, still alive in the division race, chance to knock off a hated rival, chance for a decent season and a bowl game, chance to play at home for the rst time in a month, chance to . The carrot, shes gone, and there is no Bugs Bunny ready with another carrot for another day. Oh sure, theres the opportunity to upset South Carolina and ruin the Gamecocks chances to go to Atlanta, but thats pretty hard to conceive after the latest display, the dismal 34-17 loss to Vanderbilt. And theres the looming contest with Florida State, with the shot to spoil the Seminoles national championship hopes. Only problem is, were talking reality here, and in the current state of Florida football, knocking off a team like South Carolina, and especially Florida State, is beyond far-fetched. Hey, beating Georgia Southern is no sure thing. Bet the folks at Toledo are kicking themselves for letting the season opener get away. We have officially entered the realm where rock has rmly met bottom the Gators just lost to Vanderbilt Vanderbilt for the fi rst time since 1988, when Emmitt Smith was hurt and the Gators lost four in a row, scoring 23 points in the process. And its not just that these Gators fell to the Commodores, unthinkable on the surface, but truthfully, they were hardly even in the game. Vandy led from start to nish, a recurring theme for the Gators, who have not had a lead for 15 straight quarters, since they entered the second quarter at LSU ahead 3-0 (the Tigers would score a touchdown four seconds into the period). In fact, in Floridas ve losses, the Gators have led for all of 4:32 thats out of 300 minutes. Unbelievable. Yet here were the Gators in the midst of the same old thing (what were doing so far isnt working keep doing the same stuff youll get the same results, head coach Will Muschamp repeated again after the game), winning the coin toss and deferring the option to the second half, like always. Why? Why not do something different, anything? Take the ball rst, try an onside kick, anything to snap the doldrums that surround this program. The Gators have been a lousy rstquarter team, but so has Vanderbilt, in fact, the Commodores entered with worse numbers in the rst 15 minutes in their four losses this season, they were out-scored 72-0 in the rst quarter. So instead, as always Florida kicks off and the defense picks up where it left off against Georgia, allowing the Commodores to methodically march down the eld, holding the ball for seven minutes and kicking a eld goal. Nice way to seize the early momentum. Everybody wants to put their nger on one thing and say, This is what it is. Thats not the way it works, Muschamp said. Theres multiple things that have got to get corrected and we will. The strain of this four-game losing streak has started to wear on Muschamp. As much as you try to build a cocoon, it doesnt work that way and he knows the natives are beyond restless. He momentarily lost his cool when coming off the eld last week after the Georgia loss, getting into a bit of an exchange with a Gator fan.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFishing is excellent and should stay that way From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL I am probably repeating myself but it sure is hard to believe it is the middle of November and only a little over a week until December. The weather, except for some wind and a few cool mornings, has been absolutely beautiful. Fishing is excellent and should stay that way through the end of the year barring a large amount of rain between now and then. The water temperature is in the middle 60s but dropped into the 50s when we had that cold weather last week. I talked to JR at the Aucilla and he said shing down there and around the Econ na is good. Fish moved into the river after that real cold night we had and they were catching them up as far as the boat ramp. Until Saturday they were catching plenty of sh in the river and up in the creeks. The warming pushed them back to the mouth and around the ats and mouth of the numerous creeks down there. Around the Econ na they had also moved into the creeks and were also being caught around Rock Island. The folks at Shell Island Fish Camp said lots of sh were being caught from the mouth of the St. Marks all the way up to the fort where the St. Marks and Wakulla Rivers meet. There have also been some good catches made in the Wakulla up above the sh camp. Lots of big reds are being caught over around the Cut at St. George Island and cut bait and live pilchards on the bottom are your best bet. Plenty of trout are being caught in the bay and look for sheepshead and ounder around the old bridge. Good shing reports are still coming from Keaton Beach and live pin sh, top water, the Gulp and live shrimp are all producing good catches of trout up to 27 inches. The areas around Gray Mare and Cobb Rocks, east of the Lighthouse, are producing plenty of nice reds and trout. This is a good time for topwater and the Skitter Walk is really producing as well as the Rattlin Red n in gold or silver. Capt. Jerry Alexander has a charter Saturday before last and the limited out on reds and had a real nice catch of trout. They used live shrimp and mud minnows. On Sunday and Monday Jerry went out with Glen Peel and some others and they limited on grouper both days and also had some nice rockbass. They caught most of their sh trolling in 20 to 25 feet of water with the Manns Stretch 25. Mike Pearson, one of my neighbors at Shell Point, went out on Veterans Day and they got their limit of grouper and two nice kings. They were fishing live bait and LYs on the bottom in about 35 feet of water. Capt. David Fife took the Joe Petrulak party from Vero Beach and they caught lots of nice reds and speckled trout using live shrimp and mud minnows. Joes daughters Jordan and Megan caught their limit of reds and were all smiles when they came in On Saturday David took Richard Gardner from Shell Point and they limited out of speckled trout using topwater baits. On Sunday he had three ladies and their son and using live bait and towater they caught 15 trout and five nice reds. Several weeks ago I took Kelly Dimon and his good friend Charlie from Pine Mountain, Ga. Charlie had been though some surgery and medical problems and was just gonna sit in the boat and watch while we shed. On the second day we went over to Panacea and fished for white trout and they were biting so fast he decided to sh just a little. He ended up catching and releasing two reds over 37 inches and Kelly caught and released one. I took Marcus Carter and a friend the next day and they each caught and released big reds and both said they were the biggest they had ever caught. I took Kevin, Terilyn, Kyle and Sean McWilliams there on Saturday after spending all morning looking for specs and reds with no success. We hooked one big red but caught 50 white trout. This charter I had this past Sunday is why I like guiding folks fishing so much and especially kids. I took Jason Oberste and his 11-year-old son Davidson, 8-year-old son Grayson and his father David. We went to Panacea the rst thing and spent an hour and a half waiting for the white trout to bite. The rst time I saw Davidson cast I knew he could handle a shing rod. Later I learned just how well he could handle it. I went to about ve or six other spots and nothing but a few short sh. Nobody said anything but I knew they were thinking, Boy is this gonna be a long day. I was just about ready to run all the way back to Panacea and hope the white trout were biting when I thought about a spot that should produce. Finally! The trout were there and they wanted the shrimp I was throwing to them. Everybody was happy and I was dang sure happy. Davidson said earlier in the day he would like to catch a red so I went to a spot I hadnt shed in year, because the spots I had been fishing had not been producing. We caught ve nice reds and threw back probably 20 small reds, two flounder and two more keeper trout. The sh were right up against the grass and Davidson was dropping the cork and shrimp right where they needed to be. Grayson ended up with the biggest red and biggest smile. Both boys caught trout, flounder and reds and Grayson said he didnt want to be left at home anymore. Everybody went home happy and when the client is happy, the guide is happy. I wont have an article before Thanksgiving so let me say now that I hope you and yours have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Remember to be careful on the water and know your limits.

For the vast majority, this inhospitable realm is full of mystical creatures, darkness and fear, and best avoided. Water for these folks is best consumed at the dinner table, traversed by boat and virtually observed on the at screen. Then there are those who embrace the underwater world as a recreation. In search of adventure, these intrepid souls learn to breathe from machines that enable them to submerge into the liquid world and become a creature, however brie y, of the aquatic realm. Most simply observe, others become gatherers, spearing sh, collecting scallops, capturing specimens for their aquariums. They do more than drink the water, they play underwater. A fraction of these people become professionals in a wide number of careers that can apply their trade underwater. Diving becomes a way to reach their job. The term professional diver is applied to anyone who earns a living while working underwater. Most of you may immediately think of commercial diving in the oil elds of the Gulf, and you would be correct, but the term is not exclusive to that career. Commercial divers can make a lot of money and do live a challenging, exciting life. The other well known diving career is military diving, available through all the branches of the services, and mostly taught at one facility in Panama City. The Naval Diving & Salvage Training Center provides all branches of the military with a uni ed quality training opportunity. Anyone interested in diving and a military career should visit this command for an impressive tour. Of course, once you become a scuba diver, you are encouraged to become a Dive Master, Assistant Instructor or Instructor by most training agencies. These are professional diving careers, but as stand-alone options pay poorly. The pay is better when you can repair their life support technology as a Dive Technologist. Combine the Instructor and Technologist and you become a valuable employee in the dive retail market. But there is a wider application of the term professional diving. The scientist, engineer, criminologist, chemist, anthropologist etc. who investigates their topics underwater are also professionals who dive. I was involved in the generation that de ned these folks as diving scientists. A PhD. is not required to become a Diving Scientist. The Park Ranger who monitors the spring for water quality, the Department of Natural Resources Agent who surveys the sh or scallop populations to guide policy managers deciding population control, and the crime scene detective recovering a submerged fatality are all professionals who dive. Until recently these folks were trained by specialists within their respective disciplines or through recreational dive shops. A few colleges provide programs that address this topic on the west coast and one ne program in the Florida Keys. Beginning this January, Tallahassee Community College, through their new Wakulla Environmental Institute, and through a public private partnership program with Wakulla Diving Center, will offer a semester long course called Introduction to Professional Diving. In 16 weeks, this survey class will train (to certi cation) students in basic diving skills, and expose them to additional life support tools of the trade. Examples include hose diving, side mount, rebreathers and ROV. We will use the Florida A&M University pool in cooperation with their Aquatics Program to provide an ideal training opportunity. This class will be the rst of many yet to come as our Wakulla Environmental Institute continues to grow. Be sure to enroll soon as space in this class is limited. Coast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD Flotilla 12 would like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving! We hope that you are able to spend time with your family and friends during this holiday. This past weekend saw the close to the annual North Florida Fair. We in the Flotilla owe a great deal of thanks to those who worked to ensure that our booth was staffed throughout the fair. It can be challenging to have al the shifts covered with many auxiliarists working their regular jobs as well. Bravo Zulu to all who make it a success! In addition to talking to visitors about safe boating, it is also a chance for us to talk to others who are out protecting the safety of residents in our area. Tim Ashley had the opportunity to visit with an of cer from the Florida Highway Patrol. Networking is never a bad idea, we never know when we may be working together in the future. Traditionally, we are also able to meet individuals who are interested in taking a boating safety class. However, this year we did not have anyone interested, so our class for this Saturday has been canceled. If you are interested in a class, we are always willing to work with people to accommodate their schedules. Please contact our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Public Education Alexander Gulde at fso-pe@ uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at FC@uscgaux.net. While our best efforts did not pan out, we are always grateful to have participated in the fair and met everyone who stopped by to visit our booth. Looking back on this year, we as a flotilla have much to be thankful for. We have had a great year and are already looking forward to another great one next year. As our new leadership develops their plan, we will share it with all of you.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comWEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Deja vu for Nelson, Crist HOME COUNTRYThe men discuss the meaning of female troubles By SLIM RANDLESThe morning conference began innocently enough, with Steve and Doc arguing over which of the little packaged jellies went better on sourdough toast, and no one caring which one was right. Dud and Bert and I sat silently, sucking down the morning elixir until it spread life to our outermost reaches as the Mule Barn truck stops world dilemma think tank crept to life. Bert was unusually quiet this morning and we asked why. He hemmed and hawed a little, then said, Doc, you know about these things. What exactly is female trouble? Oh shoot. Pretty heavy stuff for just two cups of coffee, so the rest of us hurried down a third as Doc puffed up a bit and got ready. Sure, Bert, Doc said kindly. Then Doc gave us the best his nine years of college and 50 years of medical practice had blessed him with. He waxed eloquent on hormonal elements, the ebb and ow of female fertility, things that could go wrong with tubular parts, and the effect all of these things could have on the attitudinal proclivities of the dear ladies we all love and admire. He took a break while Mavis returned with more coffee and with strange looks at our faces while we tried not to stare at her. Then she was gone, and Doc began again. Finally, when we had been pretty well checked out on the mysterious workings of the gentle gender, Doc said, Bert, if your wife is having some problems, have her give me a call. Oh, it aint her, Doc, Bert said. Its Dud. We all looked at Dud. He grinned sheepishly. No one wanted to say anything. Finally, Steve said, Im not going to be the one to ask. Thats what you said, Dud, right? Bert asked. Thats why Saturdays plans are shot. Female trouble? Doc said, looking at his old friend. Dud nodded. Anita wont let me go shing this weekend.Give the gift of hearing this Christmas. Start your loved one off with a free hearing test at BELTONE. Call 1-866-867-8700. By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Nov. 15 In 2009, then-Gov. Charlie Crist was coy about whether he had any intentions of running for the U.S. Senate in 2010. Crist repeatedly brushed away rumors that he would make a run at Washington, but never really ruled it out. In the end, of course, Crist ran for the seat, appearing to upend the plans of fellow Republican and former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio. But the plan back red amid the rise of the tea party movement, and the moderate Crist was ultimately forced to leave the party and run an independent campaign for Senate. That also failed. Now, three years later, Crist has become a Democrat and is the one who reportedly faces the possibility of getting big-footed, in a sort of reverse version of Crists move before the 2010 election. There were fresh indications this week that Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who has been coy about rumors that he would run for governor, is at least keeping the option open. Meanwhile, money gushed into campaigns on both sides of the governors race and into other campaigns up and down the ballot. And in a vote accompanied by far less doubt than any of those races, business leader and establishment xture Marshall Criser picked up a tangible sign that he is almost certain to be the next chancellor of the State University System. CRUEL INTENTIONS? Of course, the 2010 race is not the only one that could echo into next years contest if Nelson does try to take down Crist in the governors race. A race two decades earlier would also be eerily reminiscent of the move. In that case, Nelson was the victim when a more-powerful Democrat made a late charge into the race against unpopular Republican Gov. Bob Martinez. When Martinez began to recover, leading Democrats grew concerned that the folksy Nelson was failing to connect with Florida voters. They convinced Lawton Chiles, the retired U.S. senator who had repeatedly declined to run, to enter the race. Chiles won the nomination and the governors mansion. That was the story that Democrats oated as reports began dribbling out that Nelson is still very much thinking about making a bid for the of ce he rst ran for almost a quarter of a century ago. Nelson has repeatedly said he has no intention of running for governor, but intentions are malleable things in politics. And whatever Nelson says his plans are, he appears to still be weighing whether to take on Crist and former Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich of Weston. Sources speaking on background told The News Service of Florida that Nelsons chief of staff, Pete Mitchell, has called some prominent Democrats and told them the 71-year-old Nelson is considering a bid. The scenario that most Democrats lay out goes something like this: Crist doesnt catch re or commits a mistake that threatens to undermine his chances to beat Scott. Nelson enters the race as a savior of sorts, defeating Crist in the primary and then trying to vanquish Scott and his projected $100 million campaign. I have said since last summer that Bill Nelson is saying no, but he hasnt said, hell, no, said Screven Watson, former executive director of the Florida Democratic Party. If Charlie Crist stubs his toe, if he shows any weakness, [Nelson supporters] are going to pounce, and that pounce would be to y to Washington to talk Bill Nelson into running. But Steve Schale, a veteran of the Obama campaign who is now helping oversee Crists effort, brushed off talk that much would come of the speculation. Instead, he said, Crist will prove to Democrats that hes the right candidate to take on Scott. Campaigns are like long novels, he said. Were nine days into a 365-day campaign. There will be a lot of ups and downs, a lot of plot twists and turns before its over. OTHER PEOPLES MONEY Want to prove that the talk of a stumble and a Nelson entrance is less a subplot than a footnote? Raise a lot of money. And Crists political committee, Charlie Crist for Florida, quickly got to that task. Since Crist formally entered the race this month, the committee has raised $872,000. The list of contributors includes several gold-letter names from the trial bar, with major donations coming in from the Coral Gables-based Grossman Roth law rm, which kicked in $250,000, and Sheldon Schlesinger and the Schlesinger Law Of ce in Fort Lauderdale, contributing a combined $50,000. Venice retiree Rosalie Danbury, retired Coral Gables philanthropist Barbara Stiefel and Coral Gables attorney William Andrew Haggard also contributed six- gure amounts to the effort. Scotts Lets Get to Work committee has countered in kind, raking in $3.9 million since the day Crist of cially led to run for governor. Healthcare executive Mike Fernandez wrote a check for $1 million, by far the largest contribution, and business interests like the Florida Chamber of Commerce Alliance ($350,000) and Florida Power & Light ($250,000) also gave generously. Next to those numbers, the totals announced by other state candidates including Rich for their October fundraising numbers seemed almost paltry. For example, one of the top campaigns in terms of bringing in cash during October was the re-election effort of Sen. Tom Lee, R-Brandon, who raised just $90,850. Sen. Dorothy Hukill, R-Port Orange, drew only $56,250. One of the biggest fundraisers in the House was Rep. Matt Caldwell, R-Lehigh Acres, who collected $41,425, while Rep. Jim Boyd, R-Bradenton, took home $35,640. No Cabinet member even topped $50,000. CRISER FOR CHANCELLOR As a former chairman of the Florida Chamber of Commerce and president of AT&T Florida, Criser knows something about political money. Now, hes close to getting a position in state government without the cost of television ads or a turnout effort. On Tuesday, a Florida Board of Governors committee unanimously recommended Criser to the full board as the next chancellor for the State University System. Criser would oversee 12 institutions of higher education as the system has experienced political turbulence amid the drive to expand online education and Scotts quest to hold down tuition. And the job is likely Crisers to lose. The board is expected to ratify the search committees proposal at its regularly scheduled meeting next week. Ive been extremely impressed by the caliber of all our chancellor candidates and am con dent that our search committee has made a thoughtful, well-reasoned recommendation, Dean Colson, the chairman of the board, said in a prepared statement after the committee vote. I appreciate all the hard work of the committee, and I know the rest of the Board of Governors looks forward to seeing Marshall next week. Criser, the son of a former president of the University of Florida, would bring a history of business and political ties to the position. He has headed up AT&Ts presence in Florida since 2005, and has had a role in government relations in Florida for AT&T or its state predecessor, BellSouth, off and on since 1989. Criser also currently serves on the University of Florida board of trustees and as chairman of the Florida Council of 100, an influential business group. During an interview with the committee ahead of its vote, Criser gave limited insights into his thinking on the major issues confronting higher education in Florida. On tuition, he highlighted concerns about affordability and underscored competition from private schools and new, online institutions while alluding to the idea of potentially charging different tuition rates for different programs. I believe that more funding for higher education in general, from whatever sources it can come from, is necessary in Florida, he said. STORY OF THE WEEK: Mar-shall Criser was on the cusp of becoming chancellor of the State University System after a vote by a Florida Board of Governors search committee. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Keep Biloxi in Biloxi.

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com Having a big mouth can cause the owner no end of grief and problems. This special trait has a distinct capacity for certain performance expectations in the minds of those in close proximity. Even in hushed silence and frozen inactivity, the big mouth is quickly recognized by most and monitored with anticipation. The next deed may deliver a surprising action worthy of debate and discussion for years in the future. Gad ies, gossips, and busybodies aside, Wakulla County is home to one of natures most recognized and appreciated bigmouths. Brown pelicans patrol the coastal waters daily as they have for centuries in search of watery prey. The pelicans gaping mouth is augmented by a pouch suspended from the lower half of the birds long, straight bill. The bill may compose one-third of the birds overall length. Brown pelicans are a common sight skimming a few inches above the placid waters of bays, inlets and brackish backwaters. Keen eyesight and sharp re exes allow these birds to spot small sh near the surface. When their target is identi ed, they plunge headfirst with the mouth open at the sh. The pouch functions as a dip-net, trapping the startled sh. The pouch holds the pelicans catch of sh until the water, up to three gallons, is squeezed out. After a successful dive, laughing gulls may hover near the pelican ready to steal any sh within easy reach. The multi-purpose pouch serves as more than a dip-net. It also serves as a cooling system during hot weather, and as a feeding trough for young pelicans. The brown pelican is sometimes referred to in literature as the American brown pelican or the common pelican. Whatever name is used, they populate the Atlantic, Paci c, and Gulf Coasts of North and South America. It is the most frequently seen pelican in this range, but the smallest member at 54 inches in length. They are easily identi ed by their chestnut and white necks, white heads with pale yellow crowns, brown-streaked back and tail, and gray bill and pouch. Their 6-to7-foot wingspan easily support the 10-pound adult weight in ight. Airborne their necks are folded with heads resting on their backs as they employ a steady powerful wing beat to propel them in search of sh. Brown pelicans are powerful and agile swimmers. Their young are at home and functioning in the water even as they are still learning to y. On land their appearance is awkward and clumsy. Large ocks of pelicans collect on land and in the water during much of the year for gregarious social interaction. Wakulla Countys brown pelicans are mainly sh eaters which require up to four pounds of sh daily to support a health active adult bird. Their diet consists mainly of sh under a foot in length, and not commercially signi cant. The occasional shrimp will nd its way into the pelican pouch, too. In years past pelicans have been accused of depleting fish stocks. Research indicates this is not the case. To learn more about the brown pelican and its importance, visit the UF/IFAS Wakulla County website at http://wakulla.ifas.u .edu or call 850926-3931.

By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsChris Beatty, executive director of the Florida Wild Mammal Association, takes a little time from her busy daily routine of nurturing wild animals to walk the grounds and introduce some recent projects underway. FWMA is a non-pro t organization dedicated to rehabilitation and eventual release of injured and orphaned wildlife. It is also an educational organization, with programs in place to teach the community about the wildlife in Wakulla County. The busiest time for FWMA is April through September, and its referred to as the baby season, when more volunteers are needed for an active feeding regimen. FWMA works to rehabilitate native wildlife, including birds of prey, some exotics and some farm animals. Beatty points out a barred owl resting on a stick high above in the ight cage, the largest pen on the property. The flight cage was just redone, she states. Last year we lost the roof during Tropical Storm Debbie, and it had to be totally rebuilt. We had to bring in a crane for the roof, and a lot of volunteers to help us rebuild it. Pelicans are one bird they get a lot of, returning about 50 each year into the wild, brought in with various injuries such as broken wings and torn pouches from shing lines and hooks. FWMA works with a small paid staff of three, along with a host of dedicated volunteers. And that is to keep the six-acre refuge of wild animals fed, medicated and prepared for their next step. There is a 12 hour feeding schedule, as well as keeping the grounds groomed, and the pens kept. As for the funding, the FWMA operates on a single private grant and receives no government funding. It is because of the fundraisers and donations from the public, they are able to keep their doors open. The downturn in the economy hit many non-pro ts hard, and the FWMA is no exception. Right now, we operate on about $110,000 yearly budget, just to maintain the facility, feed the animals in rehabilitation and pay our staff of three, Beatty says. The bill to feed the rescued wild animals alone runs about $750 to $1000 per week. Every animal is different, so we need to have lots of food in stock. All babies eat different, and thats what makes it so expensive, she explains. Then there is the bill for veterinarian services, including surgeries and illness. The Crawfordville Animal Hospital is the main veterinarian clinic used by FWMA. Dr. Reed Guhrt donates many of the supplies needed for caring of the animals, and doesnt charge for time. But its never enough, and FWMA has an extensive wish list on their website for those who want to donate needed items, including medicines, food, cleaning products and much more. Beatty suggests if you nd an animal that needs to be tended to just bring it to the facility, located on Edgar Poole Road. Its best to keep it warm and in a dark holding place if possible. Beatty says she has been doing this for 25 years, and there is no end in sight. She loves what shes doing and she is passionate about saving wild animals and returning them to their home the woods and skies. You have to believe in what youre doing, says Beatty. If you would like to volunteer or donate directly to the FWMA, go to their website at www.wakullawildlife.org. FWMA is located at 198 Edgar Poole Road, Crawfordville FL 32327. The phone number is (850) 363-2351. By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsFrom the Heart Recording Studio in Sopchoppy will host a fundraiser to bene t the Florida Wild Mammal Association on Saturday, Nov. 23rd. Hearts Gone Wild begins at noon and wraps up around 9 p.m. They ask for a $10 donation per person, but the cost is low for the impressive lineup of musical acts. As well, local vendors with arts and crafts will show and sell their creations. There is a silent auction and food available for purchase at the M.E. Tasty Taco Truck, selling both meat and vegetarian items. BYOB is allowed, on premises only. There will be some chairs, but people are encouraged to bring their own event chairs and invited to stay and enjoy the day. There is an all day array of animal-loving musicians playing to bene t the rescue operation which is located on six wooded acres in Crawfordville off Edgar Poole Road. The music begins at noon with Hot Tamale, the harmonic duo from Tallahassee of Craig Reeder and Adrien Fogelin. Next, Ralph Peletier, a crooner from Sopchoppy, who plays in the tradition of Hank Williams, will take the stage at 1 p.m. with a set of rockabilly tunes and storytelling. A gifted musician and full of energy, Mimi Hearn plays at 2 p.m., with Frank Graham and Kevin Robertson. She and her band, the Hearndogs, perform every monday at the Mockingbird Cafe in Tallahassee. They are known for their rockin blues and jazz. Kevin Robertson remains on stage and joins Scott Campbell at 3 p.m. Theyll play a folk rock set of originals and covers. At 4 p.m. Dean Newman, Kit Goodner and Charlie Wilkinson will play a set of alternative country tunes. They will be playing songs by the Decemberists, Tiimbuk3, Bob Dylan, Jim White, the Jayhawks, and Grayson Capps. Dean Newman, of Alligator Point, has recently been recording tracks for a CD titled Despair knot, at From The Heart Recording Studio. In a recent phone interview Newman talked about his style of music, nding it dif cult to put a label on it, like most artists. Newman has been recruiting musician friends from the area to contribute to his CD, playing everything from banjo and fiddle to electric guitar and drums. Ive been around here a long time so I know a lot of people who play, he says. I offer to buy them dinner if theyll come to Sopchoppy and be a part of this CD. Newman originally had no plans to sell the CD. It started off as a project for his children and grandchildren, but he teeters on this decision a little because its come out much better than he thought. Im only printing 300 copies and I plan to give it away, but you know, its pretty good, he says. And I bought the rights to all the covers. So, you never know, maybe, well see. At 5 p.m. Kim Thomas and George Boggs perform a duo of progressive folk bluegrass music. At 6 p.m. Ashoka, a trio comprised of Andrew Redmond, Heath Purvis and Luka Sharon, will play some original metal rock fusion. The host, Rick Ott, performs at 7 p.m. with Stan Gramling and Rick Brunetti. It will be time for everybody to put on their dancing shoes, as they play good ol rock n roll covers. Highlighting the event at 8 p.m. is Sammy Tedder and the Jazz Hounds, comprised of Tedder, Mike Andrews, Stan Gramling, Renee Sutton, Rene Arbogast, and Eddie Horan. For those who have been around the areas music scene may recognize the hodgepodge of musicians from other band formations. I have played music with these guys since the early 1970s for the most part. Stan and I were in a soul band called The 8 of Us in the late 1960s and Mike Andrews and I played the rst time together at Elizabeth Cobb Junior High in 1962 or 63, he said. We have all remained good friends all these years and love to get together to play for important causes such as the FWMA. In a last minute addition, a duo called M&M, two accordion players from Sopchoppy, will perform an early set at 11:30 a.m. as the artists set up. So, if you want to get a prime location for the day of music, come early and enjoy some accordion music. In addition to the music, the art and the silent auction, there will be a bon re to keep everybody warm. The yard where the event will be held is behind the From The Heart Studio where Nelle McCall, event organizer, grows vegetables and herbs she sells at organic grocery store, Bay Leaf Market in Crawfordville. This is also an opportunity to purchase items and gifts for the holidays by local artisans. Some of the work on display at Hearts Gone Wild will be Penny Andersons paintings, Adelia McLeods artwork and hobo furniture, Neil Hosnicks nature photographs, Renee Michells leatherwork, Rod T. Gasches rocks, Kathy Shirahs apiary products, and Mary Browns and Pat Moores painted burlap garden banners. Donations of silent auction items have been generous and include photographs, paintings, jewelry, gift baskets and much more. Event goers will be able to bid on silent auction items throughout the day, and will not be required to be there when the bidding ends. Items with the highest bids will be available to be picked up at a later date. The recording studio will be open for people to use the bathrooms and the silent auction will be set up indoors as well. The forecast is showing a slight chance of rain, but the event will go on as planned rain or shine, says McCall. & Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013Hearts Gone Wild will benefit FWMAHearts Gone Wild A fundraiser for Florida Wild Mammal AssociationWhere: From e Heart Recording Studio, 55 Rose St., Sopchoppy.

The State Aid program provides over 90% of our books and materials budget, supplies, salary for our childrens coordinators and well as many other expenses not paid for through county funds. As I mentioned in an article a few weeks back, according to a study published in 2010, (with a new one to follow next year), the county of Wakulla County gets a return of $17.92 in services on every $1 spent on WCPL by the County. The stats that are compiled show exactly how much bang for their buck Wakulla Citizens receive. From October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013, we added 924 new members to bring us up to 12,801 library card holders. These people enjoy the over 39,000 books, 352 eBooks, 1400 audio books (with 81 of those being downloadable), and 3300 DVD/Video Tapes in our collection. We circulated over 77,000 physical items along with over 800 eBooks/audio books from our eBook service. We provided space and put on ourselves over 400 different meetings and programs with over 15,000 people attending over the year. We were able to provide to our patrons nearly 600 books from other libraries through Inter-Library Loan. There were over 47,000 visits to our website and the databases provided through it and over 13,000 patrons used our Public Computers over the last scal year to job search, educate, and entertain themselves and their families. Yes, we get a lot of repeat business but isnt that a sign of a well supported, successful agency/ business? All that Ive mentioned above is provided free of charge, only through your continued support, and the support of the Board of County Commissioners, County Administration, and of course the Friends of the Library. We promise to continue to provide these services to you in the most professional and friendly way possible. For those who are regular users of WCPL we thank you! We invite all who may not be aware of all that we offer to please come by and see all that we cheerfully do for the citizens of Wakulla County. FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE Our Friday Night Movie this week is the worldwide blockbuster reboot of the Superman saga. This PG-13 (for intense sequences of sci violence, action & destruction, and some language) film stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, and others. It is a modern retelling of the Superman legend as a young man struggles to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. The hero in him must come out in order to save the world and become a symbol of hope for all mankind. This action packed lm begins at 7:00 in our Main Meeting Room and doors will open at 6:45. All children must be accompanied by an adult. THANKSGIVING CLOSING Just as a reminder, WCPL will be closed Thursday the 28th through Monday December 2 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We will reopen with our normal schedule at 9:00 Tuesday December 3. Items which are due can be returned to our book drop in our parking lot as it will be checked over the weekend. On behalf of my staff I wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend!By SCOTT JOYNER Library Director Library News...

Page 8B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, November 21, 2013 thewakullanews.comI would like to remind our readers that I am sponsored by the Wakulla County Historical Society of which I am a proud member. Securing and preserving the proud history of our region is so important to us and to generations that follow, our historical society appreciates all the support you can provide. As a Special Agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), I was transferred from my posting aboard the U.S. Naval Base, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the of ce at the Naval Weapons Station, Yorktown, Va., in 1990. It was there that I became close friends with a fellow NCIS Special Agent, Scott Campbell. Scott was born and reared in Latrobe, Penn., and besides being an outstanding golfer, having worked at Arnold Palmers golf course as a caddy, he was an outdoorsman who was a skilled hunter of the Eastern Wild Turkey. I grew up hunting as a boy in Wakulla County, but because my work required frequent transfers to many posts around the world, I soon abandoned the sport of hunting. Scott changed that as we began hunting turkeys and other game in the woods near Yorktown and Charlottesville, Va. I will now relate to you readers how I became involved in a desperate ght on the occasion of my rst successful turkey hunt. I will never forget that hunt. In fact, my rst gobbler was a Citation bird, and the tail feathers and beard are proudly displayed on the wall of my home here in Tallahassee. The plaque is inscribed, J.Y. Roberts, 4/17/96 22 lbs, Charles City County, Virginia. The beard, which is attached, is 12 inches long. That morning I had accompanied Scott and another NCIS Special Agent assigned to the Yorktown of ce, Dave Dickerson. We were hunting in the Chickahominy Wildlife Management area in Charles City County, Va., which is about halfway between Yorktown and Richmond. We entered the woods before daylight and each went into different locations deep in the woods. We always hunted far enough away from each other that we would not interfere if any one of us started calling a turkey into shooting range. We had scouted the area several times before and knew there were turkeys in those woods. I had settled in to a likely spot just before daylight, and as the sun began to rise, started to use my slate call to mimic the yelp of a hen turkey. For those of you not accustomed to hunting turkeys, during the spring hunting season, gobblers are looking for hens with whom to mate. It wasnt long before a gobbler answered my calls and I began working him in toward me. He would come in just out of sight and then stop gobbling. They are wary, smart birds, and will often go silent to try to coax the hen to come to them, or to sneak in watching for any suspicious movement. This gobbler did this two or three times, and would drift away from me each time. He soon quit responding to my calls and remained somewhat distant from me. He would shock gobble to loud crows in the area. A gobbler will almost always stop and not cross any barrier between him and the hen. I was not as familiar with my site that morning as I should have been, so since the gobbler was safely some distance from me, I moved toward him and sure enough, found a creek between us. I crossed this creek and set up again, calling him periodically with my slate call. Sure enough, although he never answered, I caught sight of him coming in my direction. He was too far away and through some thick brush, so I just sat very still, as he knew my position. He seemed to be in the process of circling me, as gobblers will sometimes do, sneak around and come in from behind, so I was alert to that. After about 15 minutes, I heard a twig snap behind me and to my left. I quickly swung my gun around and although I did not have a real clear shot, he was in killing range and knowing he had seen me and was about to run or y, I red. It was not a clean kill, but the bird was disabled and trying to get away. Now dont forget, this was my very rst experience at actually shooting a gobbler, and I need to explain my thinking process at this critical juncture. As a boy, I hunted the Canada goose with my daddy. Now and then we would wound a goose and the way we put them out of their misery was to grab the goose by the neck and swing him around to ring his neck. So I gured this would be the remedy for my wounded gobbler. He was not able to run from me, so I propped my gun against a tree and ran over to the turkey. Thus began the struggle between life and death for not only the turkey, but for me too! Now this big bird stood almost chest high to me, and when I snatched him up off the ground by his neck, he was determined to whip me good. Lucky for me, it was a cool morning and I had heavy clothing on, because as soon as I picked up the very much alive gobbler, he struck me hard in the groin and stomach with his large spurs. Still hanging onto his neck, which I was trying to ring, I stumbled backward and fell to the ground. What a sight that must have been. That gobbler was scratching and clawing and covering me with his large wings as I struggled to get out from under him. No way I could ring his neck or do much to him in that position. He de nitely had the advantage being on top of me. I was still thinking about what he could do with those spurs, maybe hitting me in the neck. With all my might, I threw the bird off me and scrambled over to my shotgun and dispatched him with a clean head shot at point blank range. As I laid there catching my breath, the thought came to me that some other hunter may have been in the vicinity and witnessed my unusual struggle with this wild turkey. What an embarrassment that would be! So before picking up my trophy turkey, I sat quietly for several minutes listening and looking. Thankfully I concluded that only me, the turkey, and God in heaven would know what happened. Looking back on it, I think I confessed to Scott and Dave that same day as I had to explain the headless turkey I brought out of the woods. Since then, in my old age, I actually enjoy recounting the story for the entertainment of friends, and now everyone who reads this will probably get a laugh out of it. After all, laughter is good for the soul, and for any who may be thinking of venturing into the woods during spring gobbler season, just remember, a turkey gobbler is not the same as a Canada goose!Desperate ght in the Virginia turkey woods Red Clay Footprints By John Roberts JOHN ROBERTS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSJohn Roberts trophy from his 1990 turkey hunt.
