According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of the car, Krista Shannell Smith, was driving southbound on Lonnie Raker in a 2012 Kia Forte at about 7:40 a.m. on Saturday when she missed a curve, left a roadway and struck a tree. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene. FHP was assisted by the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce and Wakulla EMS. By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net The Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment (CHAT) will not be continuing an agreement with the county to run the existing animal adoption center due to what Heide Clifton of CHATs board of directors said is a misalignment of goals and visions. CHATs main concern, said Clifton, is that the animals that come through the doors of the adoption center leave to go to good homes something that would not be possible under the proposed agreement put forth by the county. The County wanted full control of our 501(c)(3) and they wanted us to spay/neuter over 80 percent of the animals that came through Animal Control, Clifton said. After two or three weeks we would have to send them out to rescues, where their future is uncertain at best. We just could not do that. Edwards contended that the proposed agreement was handed to CHAT with an understanding that there would need to be alterations. We warned them that a lot of things would need to be worked out or changed, he said. This was a rst draft, we were willing to negotiate. Instead, said Edwards, CHATs board of directors responded with a letter notifying them that they had voted 7-1 to terminate pursuit of an agreement with the county and to vacate the current adoption center building as of January 31, 2014. According to the letter, the CHAT board felt that putting our countys problems off on other cities and states is not within our mission, nor our philosophy. It also stated that CHAT, as a non-pro t organization, did not wish to subject itself to either total oversight from the countys animal control of ce, or restrictions pertaining to their daily operating procedures. They made a business decision and I respect that, Edwards said. There are no hard feelings on our part. We left shaking hands. As for the topic of negotiations, Clifton said, that she felt there was none. I dont feel as if the draft agreement that the county produced left much room for reconciliation, she said. It was just impossible for us to say that we could do what it wanted. Clifton said the outcome is unfortunate, but that CHAT will not cease to exist. The only thing we wont be doing is adoptions, she said. We plan to put our money into education and were looking forward to working with other projects. According to Clifton, CHAT will continue their large fundraisers and events such as Pamper Your Pooch that is put on at Hudson Park about twice a year as well as their annual rose sale. The discussion at hand originally stemmed from the organizations desire to enter into a formal agreement with the county which would outline and de ne the working relationship between three entities: CHAT, Animal Control and Wakulla County. With a desire to begin certain projects and investments, Clifton said, the current agreement which states that CHAT could be asked to leave the premises with only 30 days notice, they pursued a binding agreement, in part, to establish stability and to protect their interests. Since CHAT was formed in 2001, it has occupied the adoption center building, which was also constructed that year. Several years later, in 2008, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between CHAT and the sheriffs department under then-sheriff David Harvey. The MOU stated that CHAT would operate the adoption center for a fee of one dollar per year. The next year, in September 2009, the sheriffs department transferred supervision of animal control over to the county and, at the same time, the county agreed to continue the MOU with CHAT until a new agreement was made. As that agreement was the last made with the county, CHAT had sought to renew some sort of contract. However, after 13 years of operating the adoption center, CHAT board members thanked the county and informed its administrator of their resignation. Its a big disappointment, Clifton said. But things change. Its unfortunate, but well still be here doings things in the county. AMANDA MAYORThe CHAT pet adoption center. A Wakulla re ghter at the scene of the crash. By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net On Dec. 1, a small group of the Seminole Tribe of Florida set from Egmont Key in Tampa Bay and landed, 22 hours later, at Fort San Marcos de Apalache State Park in St. Marks. The trip was designed to commemorate their ancestor, Polly Parker, and her escape during what came to be known as the Trail of Tears over 150 years ago. Polly Parker took back her freedom and returned to her homeland, said Secretary of State Ken Detzner during a speech he made at the reception ceremony in St. Marks on Monday, Dec. 2. What a great opportunity for us to re ect on the past and the obstacles that the Seminole tribe has overcome. Tribe Historian Willie Johns credited Parkers bloodline with providing several councilmen and tribe leaders through her efforts to escape those many years ago. While a ship that was deporting her from her home in Okeechobee to west of the Mississippi River was docked near St. Marks, Parker was somehow able to escape and elude federal troops overseeing the journey. Parker trekked hundreds of miles back down south, eventually reaching her home and helped to establish the Seminole tribe. Johns, a descendent of Parkers, was born and raised in Okeechobee as a result and expressed his gratitude for his ancestors efforts. Were glad she did what she did, he said. Johns presented a commemorative coin to Detzner and a portrait of Parker to Florida Park Services Donald Forgione.

By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netOnly one response was received by the board of county commissioners for their request for proposals put out for those interested in volunteer management and operations of the community center. The RFP allowed for the collaboration with others wishing to participate in the project and that the successful lead proposer would enter into an agreement with the other parties identi ed in the collaborative proposal to ensure that each party cooperates in compliance with the terms of the RFP, the collaborative proposal and the agreement with the county. Life Fitness Consultants, comprised of Dr. Jim Hilyer and Dr. Lynn Artz, submitted a collaborative proposal in conjunction with the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth with seemingly separate, but understood functions. However, since the youth coalitions portion of the proposal is contingent upon grant funding that has not yet been nalized, any action or commitment by the board was halted until their next board meeting on Dec. 9, by which the coalition hopes to have a contract established with the granting agency, the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida. The proposal, as it was presented at a workshop on Nov. 18, outlined the volunteer management by Life Fitness for a period of up to one year at no cost to the county. The coalition also hopes to manage, on a grant-funded basis, an expanding set of operations and programs for up to ve years. Bruce Ashley, chairman of the youth coalition board, said, We are not a program. The coalition doesnt do programs, we bring partners together who will offer programs and services. Ashley also said that the coalition is still waiting on details regarding the amount of funding and the date that funding will be received. I feel uncomfortable talking about it publicly because we have not executed a contract, he said. But expectations are that the funding will be substantial enough to support full-time and part-time staff, subcontracts with six collaborating agencies during the rst year, to cover utility expenditures and more. The focus of the grant, the proposal reads, is to establish a one-stop center to serve children and their families with room for expansion of focus and activities over time. Ashley apologized to the board for the inability of the youth coalition to present them with a solidi ed proposal and said they were supposed to hear from Ounce of Prevention about a contract before the workshop and, although they hadnt, expected to hear in the very near future. The proposal designates that the two organizations would like the freedom to enter into and negotiate agreements of responsibilities amongst themselves as well as how the management and operational responsibilities of Life Fitness will be transitioned to grantfunded staff over time. Artz gave a detailed presentation of some of the services and programs that Life Consultants intended to bring to the community center all run on a volunteer basis: Youth basketball programs Youth volleyball Preschool programs After school programs for kids who are not already in another after school program A teen-run and organized weekend teen center Wellness corner. I ask you to keep in mind, Artz said, That these would be established based on volunteer efforts only. They are intentions, not guaranteed deliverables. Artz expressed the need for commitment by the board in the ability to turn intensions into deliverables as they have talked to potential volunteers and sponsors, but none have been able to commit to an unof cial project. One of the major concerns expressed by commissioners was the issue of transportation. Commissioner Jerry Moore directed a question to the youth coalition about whether there would be funding available to help with the transportation of the countys youth to the community center. My concern is for the kids in places like Panacea who will have a very dif cult time in getting there, Moore said. Ashley said that the coalition has already placed a line item in their budget to address transportation and that discussions have taken place with the school board about the possibility of using the countys school buses. Were fully ready to start gathering that information, Ashley said. We realize transportation is a big concern and were very sensitive to that issue. Commissioner Howard Kessler expressed concern about the prospect of the two organizations working together. This is unsettling to me, he said. To be dealing with something where we dont have a contract in front of us and I dont think a co-director situation works. Kessler also wanted to know what the consequences for the county would be down the road. Ashley said that you never really know what is going to happen down the road. But our intent is to be adding concepts, building paying customers, building partners and growing the community center as a whole from day one, he said. Commissioners directed conversation over to County Administrator David Edwards as to what he needed of them. Edwards said they could move forward with the RFP the way it was or wait to hear about the terms of the grant. Edwards offered further comment as well on the sustainability of the project. Weve got to go into this thing knowing that it will potentially cost us money down the road, he said. Weve got to take steps every year to help us when we get there. But weve got to ask ourselves if this is going to be a community center. If it is, then this is our best shot. Chairman Randy Merritt expressed his inclination to wait until the board knows more about the grant before they proceed. I dont think we can make a logical decision until we know about the grant, he said. The rest of the board seemed to agree, and the workshop ended with the consensus being that everything would be done at one time at the Dec. 9 board meeting, provided that word about the Ounce of Prevention grant is received.Youth coalition offers to partner to provide programsCOMMUNITY CENTER WILLIAM SNOWDENEd Lyon, Big Bend Hospice chaplain, motions at the candles for grief and comfort at the service.

At this time of my life, being able to do my shopping and go the doctors on my own means a lot. The Senior Center helps many seniors and children in our community. It offers a place to meet and engage in wholesome activities, provides Meals on Wheels, offers day care services and transportation. There have been many changes recently at senior center. But one change that has not happened is the level of funding from our county to the Senior Center. Since at least 2010, our county has contributed each year to the Senior Center $31,384 and an additional $37,717 speci caly for Senior Citizen Transportation. Not one penny from the annual contribution of $69,101 from the county has been cut. When I hear people saying that one county commissioner has cut the countys contribution, it upsets me. No single commissioner can make cuts. The Board of County Commissioners works as a unit and requires at least a majority to take any action. Each year, since 2010, all the county commissioners, without exception, have voted to keep the level of funding to the Senior Center. Besides, the facts speak for themselves. Annie Estes CrawfordvilleREADERS WRITE: Editor, The News: An open letter to former customers: I want to thank everyone who has helped me achieve my dream of opening my sandwich shop.

I am leaving the area and will be pursuing the next phase of my life. I hope you continue to patronize the deli and keep it going. It would be nice to still see it there when I come back to visit.

Thanks, Sandra Kirk Manager Summertrace PanaceaEditor, The News: If youve ever seen the historic photo of Wakullas founding fathers, then you have an idea of what were about to do, except on a larger scale: On Saturday, Dec. 14 at 12:15 p.m., at the commercial dock in Panacea, Wakullas Working Waterfronts Photo Project will create a master shot of fishermen/women, crab-pickers, boat-makers, worm-grunters, shrimpers, seineyard workers, seafood restaurant owners, oyster, clam, and scallop farmers, cast net makers, and more all from Wakulla County. The Wakulla County Coalition for Youth received a grant from the state Division of Cultural Affairs to develop a 45-piece photo exhibit depicting Wakullas maritime-seafaring history. Nine local photographers have already started their work, including Brett Allbritton, Mickey Cantner, Katie Deal, Betsy Kellenberger, Lou Kellenberger, Lynda Kinsey, Jo Ann Palmer, Robert Seidler, and Mark Wallheiser but we need your participation to make it a success. If you are (or were involved) in any of these professions, know of someone who is, are a descendant of the now extinct shing communities (Skippers Bay, etc.) then this is your invitation to join us for 15 minutes on Dec. 14 at 12:15 (sharp) to immortalize your place in Wakulla history. The goal is to gather as many of Wakullas maritime workers past and present in one group photo that encapsulates work, community, and pride, setting the tone for the entire project Like our Facebook page at Wakullas Working Waterfronts Photo Project, or email us at wakullawater@gmail.com, and let us know if youll be there! Herb Donaldson Wakullas Working Waterfronts Photo Project Editor, The News:I am bewildered as to what four of our county commissioners were thinking when they eliminated local protection of our wetlands. A quick click to the Visit Wakulla website touts this county as The Natural Place To Be In Florida... The diverse environment of the area is unique to the natural northern region of Florida, which remains essentially undisturbed in order to preserve the natural integrity of the area. Why would we pollute our ecotourism engine and destroy our seafood industry? How many times does the Health Department have to close our beaches before the politicians gure out why this happens? Who bene ts from more, denser development without wetland setbacks? We dont need to give away any more of our natural heritage for the pro t of a few builders. Let the people decide. Sign the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance petition today! Michael & Karen Share Wakulla StationEditor, The News: On Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to noon, the Friends of the Wakulla Library will have their annual Holiday Book Giveaway. In addition to the thousands of books available, the Friends will be providing hot chocolate and coffee to all who attend. To raise funds for the library, we will also be selling holiday cakes, pies, cookies and cupcakes made by the Wakulla High School Culinary Arts Program, a certi ed hygienic kitchen facility. Please come and show your support for our wonderful public library! The Iris Garden Club will be set up outside with many plants available for your purchase including camellias and other cold tolerant native plants. You may also nd available the beautiful hypertufa planters with sedums previously sold at our silent auctions. The garden club members will be selling handmade tree leaf bags and totes and other holiday crafts as well. A representative from Melaleuca Products will also be there to discuss the EcoSense cleaning, laundry and dish products as well as their makeup products, which I personally use and love. The library receives a portion of the proceeds of all products sold through our book giveaways or other library events. Sue Belford President Friends of the Library Editor, The News:Commissioner Ralph Thomas warns us that if the wetlands referendum passes, citizens will lose the right to develop their property. His letters are full of fear, warning and gross misinformation. Ringing the bell, sounding the alarms, he and the old guard of Wakulla County cry Fear, fear, fear, be afraid, be very afraid. If the referendum passes, we will lose our private property rights, our freedom and something the old guard never admits to our control. I say: beware the building inspector, the code enforcement board, county manager, the county planner, and the bloodsucking, neverending, rulemaking attorneys who terrify us with the risks of lawsuits and keep us from doing anything ever! They will take away everything you own, and sell your blood if they could get away with it, by raising taxes, levying nes, fees, licenses and permits, while they raise their salaries. The commissioners are like the insurance companies who play on our fears, and extract our cash and bleed us dry. As long as there have been people on the planet, there have been tax collectors and chiefdoms to squash our rights. Fear flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. Fear building inspectors, and the health department if you own a restaurant, and the IRS if you do or do not. Beware the alligators, the rattlesnakes and black widow spiders and brown recluses. Watch out for Portuguese Man of War, and shun the venomous jelly sh, stingrays and great white sharks. Be careful of poison ivy and poison oak for it will give you rashes, shun esh-eating bacteria that will peel away your skin rot away your esh. Bring forth the bulldozers, the draglines, the dump trucks, to clear away that green mush and protect us all from sand gnats, mosquitoes, ticks that carry diseases like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and mosquitoes that may infect us with malaria and yellow fever. Be like Dorothy, the scarecrow and the tin man in The Wizard of Oz as they walked through the forest crying out with trepidation Lions and tigers and bears! Oh, my! It is dangerous to listen to pesky environmentalists who insist on saying there is no such thing as private property, that its an illusion, that we dont own property we only rent it from the government. More fear: if we dont pay up, and do what the power brokers say, they will kick us off our land as the Code Enforcement Board is in the process of doing to one such property owner this month. Everyone wants to know why theres suddenly such an urgency and push on by the county to cast aside scienti c evidence of the value of swamps and their buffers and do away with the wetlands ordinance. Theres barely a dozen cases that have been made over the seven years, only three or four violators, who trashed the land and did irreparable harm, received miniscule nes, not the $1,000-a-day nes that the developers warned us about at county commission meetings. I understand that the highest penalty ever imposed was a mere $100. So why did Commissioner Randy Merritt go on the warpath to cut down the buffers, and why did the other three push for the wetland ordinances total repeal? Fear, fear, fear! Theres an insidious plan afoot! While we sleep, the commissioners and their real estate buddies are pouring over the property deeds, getting ready for the next big land grab, planning to kill off wildlife, destroy shing, and banish the birds for their evil purposes now Im doing it! Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! Why are Randy Merritt, Ralph Thomas, Richard Harden, who I think are sincere and honest men, and Jerry Moore so afraid that the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance will prevail and repeal their repeal? Maybe theyre just desperate, fearful men hoping that the next big unsustainable boom will change their fortunes so they can sell, re-sell and sell again the new houses that will be built upon lled in swampland. Ralph Thomas says, that if one person has built on the coast, then everyone should be allowed to build on the coast. You have only to go to Panama City Beach to see his vision of equality, where house-to-house, condoto-condo construction has obscured the view of the beach. Being a good, God-fearing man, I refer Ralph to the following biblical passage Isaah 5: verse 8: Woe under to those who joinne. a house to house and field to field until there is no space left. In spite of the misinformation and fear-mongering perpetrated by real estate speculators, developers and the bankers, be brave! Sign the petition, vote for the referendum. Meanwhile, I would urge Commissioner Thomas to remember Rogers and Hammersteins song Youll Never Walk Alone so that when he walks through the storm thats coming, when all the necessary 6,000 petitions are signed and led with the supervisor of elections, to keep his head up high, and dont be afraid of the dark.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR It was a Dickens kind of yearBy JAMES L. SNYDERWhile many people are out on a shopping spree to liquidate any cash reserves they might have left, I am taking this time to do a little bit of re ection. Shopping is not my favorite thing to do. I forgot about it last week and Thursday evening I took my granddaughter to WalMart to buy something. The aisles were packed with people standing around waiting for some event to occur. Not knowing what that event might be, my little granddaughter and I slowly retreated from the store. I forgot it was black Thursday and I did not want to end up with a black eye. I do not go shopping that much, but, is it me or are shoppers mean people? Just do not get between them and whatever event is taking place. I have come to the wonderful place in life that I can afford anything I want. Fortunately, I cannot think of anything I really want. Not so with the crowd I found at Wal-Mart. They wanted something really bad, and I wanted to get out of the store really bad. Both got their wishes. I have since retreated to the solitude of my easy chair. Thanksgiving dinner is over, everybodys focus is on Christmas and so I plan to take advantage of this space. Everybody is somewhere and I am glad (you did not hear me say it) they are not here. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is in the kitchen doing whatever she does in the kitchen. I have learned after 43 years of marital bliss that if I want to maintain the bliss in my marriage I need to keep out of the kitchen when someone else is there, especially her. I have learned to live with this and it is a wonderful life. Resting and reflecting in my easy chair, I began thinking about the past year. The best way to sum up the past year for me was Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. Of course, I would have to fudge a little bit on the age of wisdom. Outside of that, that sums up my past year very nicely. Just when you think everything is going smoothly, there is a little unexpected bump in the road. The other way around is also true. Just when you think all you have are bumps in the road, you hit a smooth patch and you do not really know what to do. Take this Thanksgiving for example. Throughout the year I had managed (under some very strict supervision from you know who) to lose around 5 pounds. I was celebrating this loss quite jubilantly. That is, until the Thanksgiving dinner. I thought to myself, Self, you have done a ne job this past year it is time to celebrate. There is celebration and then there is celebration. My problem is I do not know the difference between the two; they all look alike to me. Hiding behind the roast turkey on our Thanksgiving dinner table were the 5 pounds I had lost during the year. They quite conveniently hid their presence from me but that was not the worst of it. Not only were they hiding behind the roast turkey, but also they had assembled relatives. For some reason these pounds heard that relatives were invited to the Thanksgiving dinner. I do not know how it happened; but it happened. The pounds I lost, I have found and they brought relatives with them. I am not sure I want to complain at this point because I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Here I sit in my easy chair bemoaning the fact that what I lost I eventually found. If only I could nd the hundred dollars I lost, I would be a happy camper. At least, I could afford to be a camper. Everybody should rejoice when they nd something that they lost, but I am too stuffed now to really rejoice. I feel a little nap coming on. This past year I received an unexpected royalty check from my publisher and truly rejoiced in it. It is always nice to get something you were not expecting. The following week I had to replace the transmission in a vehicle. I know, I should be grateful I had the money so I could do the maintenance work on the vehicle. I am, kind of, sort of, but it would have been nice to have the money and not have to use it. Then, what in the world is money for? This whole year has been like that. I get happy about something I lost and then I nd it. I get happy about something I found and then I lose it. This year my age of wisdom was soundly outmaneuvered by my age of foolishness. As I re ected on this I thought about what the apostle Paul said. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do (Romans 7:19). I have come to the point where I believe that the worst of times is designed by God to show me how wonderful the best of times are. I rest on the marvelous truth that my life is not in the times but in the gracious hand of God.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

I found this to be a terrifying statement. As a funeral director, I now understand how this old saying, coincides with the risk of death multiplicity within families or friendship groups. Generally, survivors will feel desolate or alone for a period of time. Navigating back to a healthy state of living is essential for the survivor. If this is not accomplished, difficulties, illnesses and even death may follow. It is an interesting phenomenon that one persons death can cause another persons death. As a funeral director, I have witnessed this phenomenon rsthand. I have seen spouses die within hours of each other, siblings pass at the funerals of their brothers or sisters and sweethearts commit suicide after learning their beloved has done so. These deaths caused by other deaths are not the norm; however, they happen. Ones risk is relative to their level of dependency and attachment on the deceased. There are also moments in time, which place the survivor at increased risk. The moment of death noti- cation, if unexpected, can be very stressful. The initial trip to the funeral home can also be a very stressful moment. Not only might the survivor be highly stressed over the financial weight of the funeral, they may not be prepared to speak so bluntly about their loss. Does death come in threes? Its possible, but now we know how to evaluate risk factors. With this knowledge, the statements made by my mother and grandmother, are not nearly so frightening. As an adult, I can evaluate attachment levels and health discrepancies. I am able to deliver such tragic news to my family members with greater understanding of risk factors, and can incorporate relevant efforts to preserve the lives of those I love so dearly.

By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGThough this is the season of Thanksgiving, its always a great time to give God thanks for the many blessings in our lives and for bringing us through the hardships of life. Many people struggle with great needs, adversities, and losses. Yet, we still have so much to be thankful for in the midst of our adversities, as we see Gods hand at work in all things, assured that God truly is working for good for those who love the Lord. In Ephesians, there is a beautiful and inspiring prayer from Pauls heart for the church in Ephesus and continues to be an amazing prayer for our lives today. Ephesians 1:15-23 says, 5 I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love* towards all the saints, and for this reason 16I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. 17I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, 18so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, 19and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. 20God* put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. 22And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who lls all in all. Pauls letters to many of the churches start out in a similar manner of appreciation. Here to the Ephesians, Paul wrote I do not cease to give thanks for you. To the Romans he wrote. First, I thank my God for all of you. To the Corinthians, I always thank God for you. To the Philippians, I thank my God every time I remember you. To the Colossians, I always thank God when I pray for you. Paul made sure that he let the churches know that he was thankful for them. Imagine how much better every one of our relationships would be if we expressed more thanks for each other. Thanksgiving wasnt just an annual occasion for Paul, but thanksgiving was a daily way of life for him, for he was constantly grateful for all that God had done for him, through Jesus Christ, whose fullness he said lls all in all. This Thanksgiving week, many people will have that full feeling, no doubt full and stuffed to the point nothing else can possibly t into our bodies. Sometimes life feels full, stuffed to the point where nothing else can t. Life can be crammed full--yet at the same time, empty. If our lives are so full, its hard for God to nd room to pour out all these great things God has in store for us. God wants us to have more than a full feeling God wants us to be lled full of all that He wants to pour into our lives. God has done so much for us, and yet God isnt done with us, there is still more God wants to give and do for us and through us. Do we ever feel our minds are so full theres no space left for more wisdom or revelation? Information overload. That our emotions are so overloaded that theres little left for the eyes of our heart to be enlightened? That our situations are so full of dif culties that we nd it hard to be lled with hope? That our nances are so depleted that it seems impossible to be lled with riches from heaven? And that we are so beaten down and weary that theres little room left for God to ll us with immeasurable greatness? But arent these the very things we crave, the very things that we truly hunger and long for? The good news is that all of these amazing things listed in this passage are ready and waiting, like a big Thanksgiving feast, waiting to be devoured. Every now and then, its good to step back and empty our lives, much like cleaning out our closets, to make room for God to ll our very souls. Paul speaks of us being lled lled with the knowledge of Gods will, lled with spiritual wisdom and understanding. God wants the eyes of our hearts to be enlightened, to have compassion to go with our wisdom and knowledge. In this season of Thanksgiving, we can give God thanks for not only the blessings of the past, but also because God is preparing us and strengthening us for future blessings. Throughout various times in life, we may have struggled with trying to gure out what Gods will is for our lives or for a particular circumstance in our lives. Its scary, to be in the midst of uncertainty. Yet faith is not the absence of fear--indeed faith is courage in the midst of fear, trusting that God will guide and provide. If we are searching to know Gods will for our lives, be assured that God will reveal to us that which we seek, as long as we keep our eyes on Gods desires, then nothing is beyond Gods power. Pauls prayer is that we may know the hope to which God calls us hope found in the immeasurable greatness of Gods power and riches of His glorious inheritance that He wants to pour out upon us! Thanks be to God every day!The Rev. Dr. Betsy Goehrig is the Pastor of Blessings, a Disciples of Christ new church start in Southwood, in Tallahassee.

Here is three weeks before Christmas and shing continues to be very good. The weather has been cooperating for the most part. The one little cold snap we had pushed the trout up in the creeks and rivers with the water temperature on the ats dropping down to the low to middle 50s but it has been warming back up into the lower 60s if the sun stays out. My neighbor across the street was down and he and his wife shed the Econ na River last weekend. He said his wife got her limit using mullet colored MirrOlures and he didnt land a sh. I told him I wouldnt put that in my article but what the heck. One of his buddies who has a house at Keaton Beach said they had been going to the Steinhatchee River and trolling purple Mirrolures and catching plenty of nice trout. This weekend he shed out of Keaton and caught sh on the ats despite the 54-degree temperature. They used MirrOlures and Gulp under the Cajun Thunder and their biggest trout was pushing 7 pounds. Capt. Pat McGriff who guides out of Keaton keeps saying shing is excellent down there right now. Mark and Louise Prance had their boys down from north Georgia over Thanksgiving and were able to get out and sh two days while they were down. Louise doesnt like the cold a lot so they didnt get started real early. They fished in Spring Creek after the cold and caught nine nice trout and a bunch of puppy reds. He said he counted 10 boats in there and I heard earlier that day there were probably 20 boats in there. Capt. David Fife had a charter on Saturday and said he had one sh at 1 p.m. He came in and went to buy some shrimp but unfortunately or fortunately nobody had any. They shed Spring Creek early and saw lots of sh but couldnt get them to bite. He went out around Smith Island and started shing the cuts and oyster bars with the Gulp and Mirrolures and when they came in that afternoon they had 20 trout. He said the water was extremely cold but when the tide started falling good the trout really turned on. Fishing around St. George continues to be good for trout, ounder and sheepshead. Fish around whats left of the old bridge for sheepshead with shrimp or ddlers. Big reds are still being caught in the cut and some nice sh are being caught in the surf using fresh shrimp on the bottom. With the water temperature rising this week look for the sh to move out of the rivers to the mouth around the oyster bars. Hopefully if it turns cold again they will head back into the creeks and rivers and not head offshore like they do when we get a lot of rain in the winter. If you are a birding person this is a great time to be out on the water. I have seen hundreds of white pelicans that migrate down here every year around November. I dont know how many ducks are on the water but last week I saw thousands. I saw at least six huge ocks of a thousand birds or more in the air at one time. Mike Falk Jr. said they were hunting around Piney Island and there were so many red heads on the water the entire area looked red. We also saw three bald eagles at one time on an oyster bar last week and I dont know how many white herons. When I see all the different kinds of wildlife that is out there it really makes me appreciate even more living in Wakulla County and especially at Shell Point. This has nothing to do with fishing but I want to put a plug in for Operation Santa. My wife has been involved with this since it rst started four years ago, as have many, many other volunteers. It went from about 70 families needing help at Christmas to over 300 this year. If you happen to be in WalMart shopping, look for the Christmas Tree near the jewelry counter. If you are very fortunate like we are and have a little extra spending money pick one of the cards from the tree and buy something for one of these folks and leave it in the Operation Santa box in the Customer Service Department. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing!

JODY CAMPBELL a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiencesPersonal Con guration In the early days of scuba there werent any manufactures like we have today. You couldnt go to a dive store and buy a widget to make your underwater experiences safer. The tools of the trade were made, one at a time, and usually by hand in garages or workshops. You might not think this is the case in modern scuba diving but you couldnt be farther from the truth. Sure, most dive stores are well equipped to put the average diver into the underwater environment safer than ever before. Production equipment rolls off the assembly lines by the thousands for these people. The divers who operate on the edge of possibility, who explore the farthest into the caves or deepest into the ocean do not have the luxury of such conveniences. Many of the production rebreathers currently available for example, come out of garages and hardware stores. The concept of changing or building ones own diving equipment is not foreign in the commuty of technical divers. Today any one of you could visit the local hardware store and nd most of the components necessary to make a rebreather. Equipment like double rebreathers are not available from a manufacturer, less maybe one, so divers such as Krysztof Starnawski built his own and took it to over 920 feet. Rebreathers are a good example but do you think open circuit divers make their own gear too? Of course we do. Early double cylinder con gurations were made by drilling out the side of a scuba valve and inserting a tube which was then soldered into place. This created the connection between two cylinders that resulted in a single large volume capacity. Today we have manifolds to do this that are stronger and built for the job at a price around $150 to $200. The bands that held early sets of doubles together were made by hand as well. Before sidemount harnesses were commercially available, people built their own, either from scratch or by modifying off the shelf recreational gear. The list goes on. This is where I am today. I purchased a harness designed and built for side-mount cave diving. OK, actually its more of a pre production item that is being sold but there are small changes between production runs as the design is modi ed. Before even attempting to dive it, I knew there were some changes needed to t my preferences. Before long I had stripped it to bare components, all the way to removing the bulkhead connections on the buoyancy device. From this I made two piles, one of parts to keep and one of parts to put on the rack for another project. Its amazing how much extra stuff is on these off the shelf units. I start by removing all padding, it takes weight to sink and with my drysuit its totally unnecessary. Then goes anything brass which in this case was all the clips, its just my preference but I only use stainless steel bolt snaps. Next started some sewing and cutting and gluing. The result is equipment that barely resembles what I started with. It goes without saying that modi cation of scuba equipment basically voids all warranties and transfers the liability to the person doing the modi cation. Im a huge advocate of personalizing your equipment and making it your own, but these changes dont come without risk and learning to manage that risk. Think through every change and talk to others so you fully understand what implications these changes may have on your life. Now we must get the training agencies to recognize side-mount diving as a recreational activity, not just a technical option.

But if youre over 70 and have any tax-deferred retirement accounts (like an IRA), put down the wrapping paper and listen up: IRS rules say that, with few exceptions, you must take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your accounts by Dec. 31 of each year and pay taxes on them or face severe nancial penalties. Heres what you need to know about RMDs: Congress devised IRAs, 401(k) plans and other tax-deferred retirement accounts to encourage people to save for their own retirement. Aside from Roth plans, people generally contribute pretax dollars to these accounts, which means the contributions and their investment earnings arent taxed until withdrawn after retirement. In exchange for allowing your account to grow tax-free for decades, Congress also decreed that minimum amounts must be withdrawn and taxed each year after you reach 70. To ensure these rules are followed, unless you meet certain narrowly de ned conditions, youll have to pay an excess accumulation tax equal to 50 percent of the RMD you should have taken; plus youll still have to take the distribution and pay regular income tax on it. You can delay or avoid paying an RMD in certain cases, including: If youre still employed at 70 you may delay starting RMDs from your work-based accounts until you actually retire, without penalty; however, regular IRAs are subject to the rule, regardless of work status. Roth IRAs are exempt from the RMD rule; however, Roth 401(k) plans are not. You can also transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to an IRS-approved charity. Although the RMD itself isnt tax-deductible, it wont be included in your taxable income and lowers your overall IRA balance, thus reducing the size of future RMDs. Another way to avoid future RMDs is to convert your tax-deferred accounts into a Roth IRA. Youll still have to pay taxes on all pretax contributions and earnings that have accrued; and, if youre over age 70 you must rst take your minimum distribution (and pay taxes on it) before the conversion can take place. Ordinarily, RMDs must be taken by December 31 to avoid the excess accumulation tax. However, if its your rst distribution you may wait until April 1 the year after turning 70 although youre still must take a second distribution by December 31 that same year. Generally, you must calculate an RMD for each IRA or other tax-deferred retirement account you own by dividing its balance at the end of the previous year by a life expectancy factor found in one of the three tables in Appendix C of IRS Publication 590: Uniform Lifetime Table if your spouse isnt more than 10 years younger than you, your spouse isnt the sole bene ciary or youre unmarried. Joint and Last Survivor Table when your spouse is the sole bene ciary and he/she is more than 10 years younger than you. Single Life Expectancy Table is for bene ciaries of accounts whose owner has died. Although you must calculate the RMD separately for each IRA you own, you may withdraw the combined amount of all RMDs from one or more of them. The same goes for owners of 403(b) accounts. However, RMDs required from other types of retirement plans must be taken separately from each account. To learn more about RMDs, read IRS Publication 590 at www.irs.gov.Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 5, 2013 Page 13 By TIM LINAFELT It was only four years ago. Barack Obama had been well established as president and wed had iPhones attached to our hands for more than two years when the Florida State football team rolled into this stadium on Nov. 28, 2009 and suffered perhaps the most degrading, demoralizing and downright depressing loss of a season full of them. Only four years and only two trips to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium since but it feels a lot longer than that in the wake of Florida States 37-7 win over the Gators here Saturday. In 2009, Florida was the nations premier college football program, the defending national champion that featured a former Heisman winner under center. The Gators easily dispatched listless FSU, 37-10, and sent the Seminoles on their way to a third 7-6 record in four years. They celebrated the careers of Tim Tebow, Brandon Spikes and Aaron Hernandez players who had led one of the most successful stretches in program history. After the game, in a tiny room beneath the stadium, a beleaguered Bobby Bowden, awash with speculation over his future, asked for no questions about when Im leaving. Four days later four years ago today FSU announced Bowdens retirement. The program was in ux, its future in doubt and it felt like Florida State might never, ever beat Florida again. Six straight losses to a hated rival has that effect. Those were the dark days at Florida State, fth-year senior Bryan Stork said after Saturdays game. If those were dark days, Stork was then asked, what are these? He smiled beneath his long, red beard and shook his head. These days? he said. Its our time. That sounds about right. The Seminoles have gone from out of time to our time in almost no time. Not many showed up in time for Floridas Senior Day celebration on Saturday. There were no Tebows, no Percy Harvins. No one on UFs offense that looked even remotely threatening to Florida States defense. Instead, all the playmakers seemed to be on the Seminoles sideline. Kelvin Benjamin, Jameis Winston and a host of others all took turns placing their stamp on this rivalry. As one FSU fan said on Twitter, So this is what it felt like when Tebow was at Florida? Ill take it. Since Jimbo Fisher took over following the 2009 season, the Seminoles have won three of four against the Gators, earned two victories in the Swamp and own a 7-1 combined record against UF and Miami. By about 3:30 Saturday, the Seminoles had clinched their rst 12-0 record since 1999 and, even better, will ascend to No. 1 in all three major polls following Auburns stunning defeat of Alabama. Theyll play No. 24 Duke on Saturday with a spot in the BCS National Championship Game on the line. Im pretty happy about that, Stork said. Its cool. But you cant be satis ed ever. Four years ago, the Gators rode a big win over a hapless rival into their conference title game, but saw their national championship hopes dashed with a loss to Alabama. FSU has already followed the rst half of that script. And the Seminoles can rewrite the rest with two more wins. Their time is here.

As always we have thousands of books as well as audio and video materials for your browsing pleasure. We are also being joined by the Iris Garden Club who will be selling plants and baked goods as you walk into the book sale. Local Melaleuca salesperson Pamela Moss will also be on hand showcasing the great healthy products from her company. The Friends of the Library gets a portion of each sale that Pamela does so this provides another way to support this great organization. Remember that monetary donations are not required to sample the great materials available but that all funds raised go directly to the Friends of the Library to help pay for our Summer Programs for the Children of Wakulla County, help us in the near future pay for our planned Teen Room Expansion, as well as offsetting other library expenses throughout the year. Over the past 4 years the Friends of the Library has saved the taxpayers of Wakulla County over $80,000 with their support of WCPL. This can only be done with your support of the Friends. Please come by and join us Saturday for all the fun and help us continue to make YOUR library the best in the area! LONG OVERDUE ITEMS After putting together the annual statistical report that I wrote about a couple weeks back, it came to my attention that we have an extremely large number of materials which are very, very overdue. While we understand that on one level this is something that every public library has to deal with, wed like to remind everyone to please return their items as soon as you can. Not only does it cost WCPL money to replace the more popular items (money which can go to other needs), it keeps the other nearly 13,000 patrons from enjoying them. For those who are wary of returning items for fear of what their nes may be, please remember that we want the materials back much more than our concern to collect nes. You can always just drop them off in our book drop out front or slide them in the slot at the front desk and leave until youre ready come in and talk to us about the nes. We will bend over backwards to help patrons who are willing to work with us on their nes via payment plans or extreme cases (OKed by myself) outright forgiveness. We do not contact patrons about their nes at home, so there is no concern about annoying collection calls. They are only brought up if you try to check anything out while owing us nes. We also cap the nes per item so there is no danger that the book youve had checked out for 2 years will accrue hundreds of dollars in nes. We know that situations often arise which dont make returning materials a priority, we just ask that everyone remembers that our nearly 45,000 items are intended for the enjoyment of the entire county and that items which do not get returned get in the way of that enjoyment and cost WCPL much needed dollars. With the holiday season upon us we have many patrons wanting materials for their time off work and school. Please help us provide this enjoyment by making sure your items are brought back timely. Thank you.By SCOTT JOYNER Library Director Library News...

Page 20 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, December 5, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comNobility is an ancient notion which harkens back to the earliest human records. Succinctly put, an individual or group is considered superior because of one or more loftier qualities which place them at the top of the food chain. These earliest nobles were ensconced in power because of their brute strength and intelligence. Their generosity to their vassals and the vanquished gave this highborn class its nobility. For the serfs and other members of the common folk tied to the land, a truly noble leader was appreciated for any act of high-minded consideration. So great was this gratitude for elevated ideals, medieval England even had a gold coin commonly referred to as a noble. The appreciation of nobility came to America with the rst settlers. As the United States was taking shape, the founders chose a symbol which re ected strength and nobility. The bald eagle, a North American native which resides in Wakulla County, was selected after some debate to portray the honorable ideals. The successful observers of the day considered this bird the incarnate example of the new countrys ideas. It is worth noting everyone agreed with this choice. Benjamin Franklin and others wanted the wild turkey, a choice which would likely have changed Thanksgiving forever. Haliaeetus leucocephalus, as the bald eagle is known scientifically, means sea eagle with a white head. As the name implies, the bald eagle is one of eight members of this genus which reside in Eurasia and Africa. Wakulla County and rural parts of coastal Florida are inviting to bald eagles which have long established breeding pairs. The pairs, which usually mate for life, remain in Florida much of the year. The term bald has an archaic de nition which means white head. The bald eagles head and tail are covered with white feathers, contrasting with the brown feathers on the remainder of adult bodies. These birds are considered North Americas largest raptors, or birds of prey. As with other raptors such as hawks and falcons, they are carnivores which skillfully employ their beaks and talons. The bald eagles diet selections largely depend on the availability of prey. In coastal area their diet consists mainly of marine fish, but may include small mammals and other birds. Contrary to a recent hoax internet video which had millions of views, bald eagles do not prey upon human infants or children. Fortunately for the eagles, the videos creators quickly acknowledged it as a school animation project. Bald eagles are fond of the many tall, opencanopy trees found in Wakulla County with close proximity to water. Many pines and cypress trees offer excellent roost from which to watch for prey. These trees along with dense mangroves offer nesting opportunities too. The nesting sites tend to be far from civilization to minimize, if not eliminate, interaction with humans. The nests are reused annually by the bald eagles during the course of their approximately 20 year life span. Bald eagle nests are the largest in North America out of necessity to raise the next generation of this nations noble symbol.
