Special to The News
ue Damon does not
need to travel far
to be inspired. She
doesn't even need to put
on her shoes.
Her Shell Point home
is spacious and open, but
cozy, with windows look-
ing out to the water. Out
the door is where she
finds her inspiration for
photographs of birds, ani-
mals and sunsets she cap-
tures daily.
"I've traveled all around
the country, and all around
the world, and there's no
place like this," Damon
says.
A University of Florida
business major, she lived


in Tallahassee, and worked
for the Florida Lottery as
a sales representative for
years, and traveled often
for her job. One day, when
she was at Julia Mae's
restaurant (no longer in
business) in Carrabelle
getting some lunch, she
met a man working on a
construction project.
"His name was David,
We exchanged cards, be-
came friends, and five
years later we got mar-
ried," Damon smiles.
"That's when I found my-
self moving to Wakulla
County."
Not long after getting
married, and a young son
at home, she decided she
didn't want to do so much
traveling with her job. So

Airport master plan approved

By AMANDA MAYOR some heated debate about port also advocate for

On Monday, Dec. 9,
the county commission-
ers voted to approve the
airport master plan up-
date to include the new
public-private option that
was presented by County
Administrator David Ed-
wards at the Nov. 7 work-
shop.
The county's airport,
which has been in exis-
tence since 1963, has to
have an approved updated
Master Plan and Airport
Layout Plan in order for
the county to keep its air-
port license.
The topic has caused

it only serves a select

Tarpine Community of
Panacea and that the rest
of the county's taxpayers
are footing the bill to sup-

group of citizens.
Supporters of the air-
port's existence claim that
it brings tourism to the
county, allowing those
looking to visit the area

recreational activities a
convenient way to travel

Wakulla


graduation rate


exceeds state
By BETH O'DONNELL
Assistant Superintendent
Wakulla County 2013 graduates had among the
best graduation rates in the state, according to
recently released statistics from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education,
Wakulla High School's graduation rate was 83.8
percent compared to the state average of 75.6 per-
cent. Wakulla's overall average was 78.9 percent,
including Sopchoppy Education Center.
Superintendent Bobby Pearce believes that keep-
ing students interested and engaged at school helps
them stay on track to graduate,
"That personal connection with a teacher, coach,
or administrator is the intangible that makes all the
difference for some students," said Pearce. "It's good
to have statistics like this validate that we must be
on the right track with the opportunities we are
offering students so they stay in school. We are
preparing them for careers right out of high school
and for any postsecondary education they choose
to pursue,"

St. Marks Lighthouse

transferred to refuge
Staff report
The historic St. Marks Lighthouse was officially
transferred from the U.S. Coast Guard to the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service, St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge, on Oct. 10.
The property consists of approximately 8 acres
of land and the 73-foot lighthouse, built in 1842,
with attached lightkeeper's quarters rebuilt in
1867.
The long-awaited transfer of this local icon

Man gets 5 years for traveling



to Wakulla for sex with minor


Andrew Wilson murder trial is set for January


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net

A 27-year-old Miami
man accused of travel-
ing to Wakulla County
in 2011 to meet what he
thought was a 15-year-
old girl for sex pleaded
no contest to charges in
the case in exchange for
a sentence of five years
in state prison.
Donovan Sauleda was
charged with one count
of traveling to meet a
minor, a second-degree
felony punishable by 15
years in prison; solicita-
tion of a minor via a
computer, a third-degree
felony punishable by five
years in prison; and two
felony drug charges, one
for possession of ectasy
with intent to sell, pun-
ishable for 15 years in
prison, and the other
possession of marijuana
with intent to sell, pun-
ishable by five years.
In felony court on
Wednesday, Dec. 11,
Wakulla Circuit Judge
Charles Dodson accept-
ed Sauleda's plea and
adjudicated him guilty
of the charges, ordering
him to serve five years
in prison followed by
five years of probation
with conditions that he
not use the internet on
a computer or handheld
device though he may
use a computer, that he
have no unsupervised
contact with children,
and that he be desig-
nated as a sex offender.

it for 336 days served in
the Wakulla County Jail
while the charges were
pending.
In August 2011, Saule-
da was befriended on Fa-
cebook by an undercover
detective posing as a
15-year-old girl. Sauleda,
then 25, was living in Mi-
ami. Over a seven-month
period, Sauleda allegedly
made lewd sexual com-
ments over Facebook.
Sauleda later traveled
to the area by bus, and
detectives followed him
from the bus station in
Tallahassee to a Craw-
fordville home. He was
arrested as he attempted
to enter the home.
In a search of his be-
longings, officers found
the drug ecstasy and
marijuana in his lug-
gage.
Sauleda had been out
on bond while the charg-
es were pending, with
conditions that he wear
a GPS, have no computer,
and not travel out of
the area. In August, his
pretrial release supervi-
sors reported that he
violated his bond after
Sauleda posted pictures
on Facebook of himself
in Miami, where he had


reportedly traveled for
the Memorial Day week-
end.
Sauleda's case had
dragged on for several
years as he went through
numerous attorneys, fir-
ing several and express-
ing disappointment with
how they were handling
his case.

Airport master


plan approved


From Front Page

Edwards had come up
with a new public-private
option, the first step of
which would be to conduct
a preliminary engineering
concept design, funded by
the Florida Department of
Transportation.
The study would reveal
any issues pertaining to
engineering and land pur-
chasing as well as environ-
mental and other factors.
Edwards made it clear
that, if any additional fund-
ing is needed throughout
the entire process, then
those matters would first
come before the board
before moving forward,
allowing for public input
and requiring a vote by
commissioners.
Additionally, another
part of the administra-
tor's plan would include
the community of Tarpine
agreeing to take on an an-
nual cost of maintenance
estimated to be about
$6,000. Edwards said the
sum can be paid however
those residents decide to
handle it.
"This is all in line with
what we talked about at
the workshop," Edwards
said.
Commissioner Merritt
moved to approve the up-
date, which was seconded
by Commissioner Ralph
Thomas.
"I like that the ones
who will benefit the most
are paying for the main-
tenance," said Thomas.
"I hope this is successful
and this gives the airport


an opportunity to flour-
ish." Thomas said he was
against taxpayers' dollars
going into the airport.
"I'm for this," said Chair-
man Richard Harden. "I
think it's beneficial and
agreeable. Those who fly
in and use our airport also
use our restaurants and
hotels. I think it's an asset
to our community."
Commissioner Howard
Kessler expressed his wish
that any new construc-
tion or improvements be
done without harm to the
environment. "I would
like to see any improve-
ments done in a way that
doesn't significantly harm
wetlands," he said.
Commissioner Jerry
Moore stated that he was
on the side of those who
are opposed to having the
airport move forward. "I
can go along with it if we
have the assurance that
the Tarpine Homeowner's
Association pays for the
maintenance," Moore said.
"If that doesn't happen
then it goes on their tax
bill."
Edwards said those de-
tails can be worked out
later. "We have got to get
going and get some science
behind this," said Edwards
about the engineering con-
cept design. "This is how
we get there."
The board's vote was
unanimous to approve the
master plan's update. The
county will have to submit
the documents to the state
before further implemen-
tation can take place.


Shell Point shutterbug

Somewhere along the
way, Damon became ac-
tive in the community
and began making a name
for herself as an advocate
of nature and conserva-
tion. She is a volunteer
and has learned to drive
the tour boats at Wakulla
Springs. She gives tours
and has been active with
The Friends of Wakulla
Springs for years.
"(Giving tours) is one
of the most rewarding
things I've ever done," Da-
mon states. "I get to show
this (Wakulla Springs) to
people who have never
seen anything like this
before."
And at the end of the
tour she tells people that
this is a dying river, the
declining numbers don't
lie. She explains to visitors
that it's what we do on the
land, that makes its way to
the water. She asks visitors
to get involved.
"I ask people to sup-
port conservation," she
says. "Wherever it is, and
whatever is important to
you."
She tries to put into
perspective the amount
of water that flows from
underneath the Wakulla
Lodge per minute, and
uses an analogy easy to
understand.
"I tell people that it's
like 15,000 showers per
minute of fresh spring
water flowing out of the
spring," she explains. "It's
a magical opening that is
feeding the animals and
giving us our drinking wa-
ter. I really want people to
understand."
Damon takes a lot of
photographs during her
boat tours of Wakulla
Springs, and has amassed
a collection of birds, alliga-
tors, sunsets and the natu-
ral beauty of the area.
Off the boat, she puts
her passion to work
through her marketing
skills, and is behind the Fa-
cebook group, The Friends
of Wakulla Springs, Wakul-
la Citizens Page and Save
Wakulla's Wetlands. As
well, she is most recently
involved with the Wakulla
Wetlands Alliance, a group
striving to put a controver-
sial wetlands referendum
on the ballot in November


Along with a crew of res-
cued animals, she shares
the Shell Point home with
her son, Gil, now a senior
at Wakulla High School. An
Eagle Scout, he is choosing
where to attend college
and has just recently re-
ceived a letter supporting
his application for the
Naval Academy in Annapo-
lis. Damon is proud, but
recalls a funny story about
Gil and their most recent
addition of animals.
"Gil said the next ani-
mal we get, we're naming
after a U.S. President, and
that's how we ended up
with a female cat named
Thomas Jefferson," Damon
laughs.
"The first night we had
her, she got out," she says
as she rolls her eyes. "And
there I was, walking up and
down the road, wrapped
in a blanket, calling out,
'Here, Thomas Jefferson,
here, Thomas Jefferson.'"
As well, they have Ally
and Skeeter, two cats with
typical cat names, and a
dog named Macy.
"I'm not really sure
where it all began, but at
some point I changed. I
used to be all caught up
in other things. But then I
became passionate about
nature, about animals, and
about the wildlife," Damon
says.
She tells a story in
which she and her brother
are sitting out on a porch
listening to nature, and
some birds are chirping.
He points out to her that
what they are hearing is
the song of the mourning
dove.
Then, she begins to ex-
plain her response, but she
is embarrassed and covers
her face with her hand.
"Do you know what I
asked him?" she says, "I
said, 'I wonder what does
an evening dove sound
like?'"
Damon does not sell
her photographs, rather
she gives them away, and
shares them with the pub-
lic through her Facebook
page and submitting them
regularly to The Wakulla
News.
"It's all beautiful." says
Damon. "I take photo-
graphs in order to share
them."

Final workshop for Capital City to the Sea


By AMANDA MAYOR
amayor@thewakullanews.net

The third and final
workshop for the Capital
City to the Sea Trails proj-
ect was held on Thursday,
Dec. 5 to bring the public
up to speed on what's
been done and what the
next steps would be mov-
ing forward.
John Sewell of Kimley-
Horn and Associates ex-
plained that, thus far, all
data collection, public in-
volvement and opinions,
as well as stakeholder
meetings have taken place
and been collected.
"You name it, we've
met with them," Sewell
said about the different
groups they have spoken
to in obtaining the neces-
sary information needed
to move forward success-
fully.
From the first round of
workshops held in both
Tallahassee and Wakulla,
he said, they were able
to establish what connec-
tions were needed, the
desired trailheads, execu-


tion of proper marketing
and established guiding
principles and evaluation
criteria.
According to Sewell
those trails will be:
A trail connecting the
existing St. Marks bike
trail to the recently funded
Ochlockonee Bay trail;
Trout Pond trail,
which runs from Talla-
hassee to Bloxham Cutoff
Road (SR 267);
And a corridor stem-
ming from 267 that creates
a loop for the system.
Sewell said that comple-
tion of the projects would
take about 20 years and
would cost an estimated
total of $20 million.
When finished, he said,
there would be a system
that would take consum-
ers from the capital city
down to the sea. "We
are only doing three at
this time due to funding,
which is limited," he said.
"However, in the future,
DOT will have this master
plan to reference should
they decide to look at it,
update it and fund future


trails."
There were stations
that were set up around
the room where large
maps of the proposed
trails were sitting on ea-
sels. Sewell asked that
the audience give their
input on what has been
done so far as well as give
thoughts and opinions on
potential trailheads, ame-
nities such as bathrooms
and water fountains, as
well as management op-
portunities.
It was announced that
the Wakulla Environmen-
tal Institute has pledged
to be a trailhead site
should it be desired by
the public.
Other input asked of
those present were on
funding sources and mar-
keting partnerships.
"Things like a Visitor's
Bureau or a not-for-profit
could be used to get the
word out," Sewell said.


"This wouldn't really be
something for a govern-
mental agency to do."
Moving forward, the
next steps will include
taking the information
obtained at the final work-
shop and finalizing a mas-
ter plan, projected to be
completed by January or
February 2014.
Then, it will go be-
fore the Capital Regional
Transportation Planning
Agency in March for ap-
proval before further prog-
ress can be made.
Each trail will be a
multiuse trail identical
to the existing St. Marks
trail. In some cases, Sewell
said, there may be areas
where an adjacent hiking
or equestrian trail will be
put in place alongside the
paved trails. The trails will
be for non-motorized vehi-
cles, with the exception of
motorized wheelchairs.


Sheriff gives money

back to county

Special to The News

Wakulla County Sher-
iff Charlie Creel and Un-
dersheriff Trey Morrison
presented a check for
$160,348 to the Wakul-
la County Commission
Monday, Dec. 9 from
unspent budget revenue
from the 2012-2013 bud-
get year.
"The entire agency
has pulled together to
enable the sheriff's office
to make this presenta-
tion to the county com-
mission," said Sheriff Wakulla Sheriff
Creel. "We have cut back Charlie Creel
in areas where we could
and we will try to con-
tinue to do so again next year."
The sheriff's office also raised $2.2 57 million in jail
bed revenue from the federal government over the re-
cently ended budget year and the WCSO has budgeted
$150,000 less in the jail bed revenue plans to account
for potential federal government shortfalls.


St. Marks Lighthouse


transferred to refuge


From Front Page

"We came back from
furlough and found it
the paperwork had gone
through," she said.
The transfer from the
Coast Guard to the refuge
had been sought for more
than a decade.
During that time, the
lighthouse and keeper's
house have suffered some
damage Will said the
buildings are "in pretty
bad shape."
"It didn't take long for
the rain and mildew to
take hold," Will said.
In the spring, the refuge
will work in partnership


with the St. Marks Refuge
Association, Inc., its non-
profit support group, to be-
gin fundraising for money
to stabilize the historic
buildings.
The lighthouse is listed
on the National Register
of Historic Places and is
recognized as a signifi-
cant historic and cultural
resource in our commu-
nity, and will be main-
tained in compliance with
guidelines set forth by the
National Historic Preserva-
tion Act of 1966.
More details about the
transfer ceremony will be
forthcoming.


Wakulla graduation


rate exceeds state


From Front Page

At Wakulla High, stu-
dents have many chances
to find something to inter-
est them in addition to
their required academics
such as NJROTC, drama,
band, AVID, medical and
engineering academies,
hands-on career and tech-
nical programs, plus many
extracurricular activities
and sports.
For many, the top-notch
academic offerings are var-
ied enough between regu-
lar, Honors, college dual


enrollment, and Advanced
Placement courses that stu-
dents can craft their own
pathways through high
school and change their
minds several times along
the way as they grow and
mature.
Wakulla High School
Principal Mike Crouch attri-
butes the high graduation
rate in part to the atten-
tion given to all students,
including those who might
not have graduated had it
not been for counselors,
teachers, and others who
never gave up on them.

Operation Santa a huge success,


but we're not done


Editor, The News:

All of us at Operation Santa and the
Wakulla County Coalition for Youth
want to take a moment to thank the
many individuals, families, civic orga-
nizations, businesses and churches that
stepped up to adopt families and make
donations.
We are grateful for all the locations
that allowed us to place Operation Santa
donation boxes on their premises.
The combined efforts of everyone
involved helped tremendously in provid-
ing a better Christmas holiday to our
neighbors in need.
Talking about need, did you know
that the number one request on the ap-
plications was for food? Yes, this time of
year we enjoy giving and receiving gifts
but the need for food is constant. This
will be an ongoing effort in Wakulla
County.
Please be sure to extend the wonder-
ful generosity of the season into 2014
and help feed Wakulla County citizens
who don't have enough to eat. Remem-
ber to donate to our local food banks on
a regular basis because no one deserves
to be hungry.
Empty Bowls, an event specifically
designed to provide food for Wakulla
County, will be held in the coming
months. Please watch for it and par-
ticipate.
Operation Santa received food do-
nations from many sources including
Farmshare, which has been with us
since the beginning, and Second Har-
vest, which joined in the effort this year
- we needed you and thank you!
We were also assisted by individual
donations and contributions from local
grocery stores. We could not have done
this without all of you!
Operation Santa, a 100 percent vol-
unteer organization, thanks those dedi-


cated individuals who contributed an
incredible amount of hours during the
last 6 months to work on this project.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office
has supported Operation Santa in many
ways.
It has been a pleasure working with
all of you. Operation Santa could not
exist without our volunteers!
Before closing, we would like to share
some of the special things that hap-
pened this year at Operation Santa.
Three families who were helped last
year were fortunate enough this year to
be able to adopt a family themselves.
Another family took their name off
the list of those to be helped because
they received a bonus from work and
didn't want to take away from others
who needed assistance more.
Another memorable event was
when Bibles were distributed to every
family. Although Operation Santa does
not endorse or promote any particular
religion, when asked if Bibles could be
given to families who wanted one we
agreed. This world traveler who donated
Bibles everywhere he went ordered 300
Bibles to be air mailed to his home in
Tallahassee. He brought the Bibles to
Wakulla County and they were avail-
able to every family that participated
in Operation Santa.
Little did we know this was to be his
last mission; Bill Daniel passed away
on Dec. 9.
The people who received one of these
Bibles were given the story behind the
event to understand what circumstances
brought them their Bible.
We wish you could see the joyful
faces of the over 1,000 individuals you
helped us serve.
Hoping you have a blessed Christmas
Holiday and a Happy New Year!

The team at Operation Santa


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Wakulla News.

Beware of telephone scams


Editor, The News:

I read in the Sheriff's
Report last week about a
woman being scammed
over the phone. I called
her to share my story of
being scammed and they
were nearly identical.
They tell you that one
of your relatives in a
jail and need bail mon-


ey. Two in one week in
Wakulla County.
Warning: Do not send
them money! It is a scam.
I sent the money and
then decided to cancel
it. They called me back,
calling me names and
threatened me saying,
"We are one mile from
your house" and said my
address. They told me the


Spanish were out to get
me and would be here
shortly.
He even had the nerve
to say, "What am I going
to tell my staff?" I said,
"Tell them they are work-
ing for a scam artist."

Support Cauzican Care Rescue


Editor, The News:


Hi.
I am writing to give
praise to Bonnie Brin-
son and Cauzican Care
Rescue.
She is an angel to our
many unwanted animals.
She works day and night
to help as many as she
possible can, however,
she can not do this all
alone.
At this time of the year
donations are down and
these beautiful animals
need MANY angels. I am
urging you as a reader, as
an animal lover to help


in some way. Without
your help many precious
animals will have to be
sent over The Rainbow
Bridge.
There are many ways
we all can help: adopt, fos-
ter, monetary donations,
gift cards (Ace Hardware,
Tractor Supply, Ashley's
Feed, Wal-Mart), gas cards
for transports, hay, feed,
help with vet bills at Shep-
herd Spring Animal Hos-
pital and Crawfordville
Animal Hospital,
As we all know, caring
for animals can be pricey
but well worth it when
you look into their pre-


cious loving eyes and feel
their unconditional love.
I am asking you to
please help in any way,
big or small, ALL help
is VERY appreciated and
much needed. Please
check out Cauzican Care at
Cauzican.org or Facebook
at Cauzican Care Rescue.
You can also call me (850)
766-6498.
These animals deserve
a community that cares
as well.
Thank you,

Selfless acts of human kindness


Editor, The News,

On the night of Nov.
2, while traveling north-
bound on 1-65, just north
of Cullman, Ala., I blew a
tire while driving down
the interstate. The tires
and rims on my truck were
brand new and I had only
had them for one week.
Needless to say, I slept
on the side of the inter-
state at exit 313 near State
Road 31 in Alabama. It was
in the mid-20s and I had
to crank my truck every
20 minutes to keep warm,
so really I did not sleep at
all. All night long not one
vehicle stopped and at that
hour, approximately 2 a.m.,
I cannot blame them.
The next morning a
flatbed Dodge pickup truck
came down the exit, went
all the way down to the
stop sign, then hit the
reverse and backed up
to where I was broken
down.
The gentleman wearing
a cowboy hat and boots
approached me and in-
troduced himself as Josh
Sparkman and asked me
what happened, where I
was from and how long I
had been on the side of the
interstate. I told him the
story and he was amazed
that I was still standing.
Sparkman told me he
was a Pastor for No Fences
Cowboy Church in Falkville,
Ala.,near Decatur, Ala.
Given that it was Sun-
day morning, Sparkman
advised he had service that
morning but hated to leave
me stranded on the side
of the interstate. He and I
exchanged telephone num-
bers and he said he was
going to get with some of
the guys at church and see
if they could help me out.
Sparkman left and ap-
proximately 30 minutes
later, he called my cell


phone and said he had a
flatbed wrecker en-route to
my location and they were
going to pick me and my
vehicle up.
Sparkman said the
wrecker driver was going
to transport me and my
vehicle to a mechanic shop
located in Decatur, Ala., to
replace all of the broken
studs on my wheel hub as
a result of the accident.
I thanked Sparkman and
asked how much all of that
would cost, given I was out
of state and it was Sunday
morning. He said not to
worry, he had taken care of
any financial cost and just
told me, "God Bless You."
In awe, I really did not
know what to say other
than I did not know how
I could ever pay him back
and that I had never been
treated so nicely by an ab-
solute stranger,
Approximately 15 min-
utes after talking with
him, a red flatbed wrecker
pulled up with two other
vehicles with it. One of
the men was driving a
Jeep and when he exited I
realized he was dressed in
the same attire as Spark-
man. He asked me if I had
eaten anything and I said I
had not. He then left, pur-
chased me some breakfast
and returned with it and
warm coffee.
The tow truck driver and
another gentleman then
loaded me and my vehicle
up and began transporting
me and my vehicle to the
mechanics shop. While
en-route, I asked the tow
truck driver if the older
gentleman was his father
or the owner of the tow
business. He said he was
and I replied he was a nice
man.
He said yes but he's
had a rough time lately.
He told me his father had
recently had heart prob-


lems. His father was a
Reserve Deputy in Deca-
turand was had been shot
in the chest point-blank
by an individual with a .22
caliber revolver. I asked if
his father was wearing a
vest and he replied he was
and thankfully the bullet
did not penetrate through
his vest.
I said, "Thank the Lord"
and told the driver I was
a deputysheriff in Florida
and added how lucky his
father was given the type
of bullet his father was
shot with.
We arrived at the me-
chanic shop and the guys
opened up, replaced the
studs on my wheel hub,
put my spare tire on,
checked all of the other
tires' lug nuts and sent me
on my way.
I offered several times
to pay the tow truck driv-
er and the guys at the
mechanic shop and they
refused payment. They
simply said, God bless
you, enjoy your vacation
and get a big one (given I
told them I was going bow
hunting).
Sgt. Dale Evans was rid-
ing shotgun with me on
this trip and can validate
these events as well. All
of the people mentioned
were angels that day and
gave me the biggest gift
and showing of hospitality
that I will remember for the
rest of my life.
I say to everyone who
was involved, God bless
you, I will never forget
what you did for me on
that day.
Sincerely,

Deputy Nicholas Boutwell

By JAMES L, SNYDER

Memory is a very won-
derful thing, at times. It
seems the older I get the
more I remember things
that never happened. I
do not know how that
takes place, but I guess it
is just old age creeping up
on me. With me, old age
has ceased creeping and
has started a fast sprint
to some finish line. I just
wish it would slow down
just a wee bit.
Christmas, however,
is the time to indulge
ourselves in memories.
Some people can go back
in time and remember
things when they were
two or three years old
years old. Me, I cannot
remember what I had for
breakfast this morning. I
have a strong suspicion
that those remembering
things back that far are
remembering things that
really did not take place
but who in the world
is going to prove them
wrong.
To me, one of the
delightful things about
Christmas is getting to
see family and friends
that you have not seen
all year long. I remember
those old-fashioned fam-
ily reunions we used to
have when all of our rela-
tives would get together.
It was at those reunions
that I remembered why I
did not see my relatives
the rest of the year. Once
a year was quite enough,
thank you.
If insanity is hereditary,
I am in deep trouble. I am
only thankful my wife
did not meet my relatives
prior to our wedding. Of
course, after I met her
relatives I began realizing
that after all, families are
relative, and some more
relative than others.
I was thinking about
some Christmases in the
past and the good times
we had. I remembered
our first Christmas as a
married couple. That was
probably the cheapest
Christmas we ever had.
Then I got to thinking
about the Christmases as
the kids began dropping


into our family and taking
up permanent residence.
When the kids arrived, it
changed Christmas forev-
er and not just the cost.
This week I got a cou-
ple of Christmas cards
from some relatives who
live up north. All of them
had pictures of snow.
Watching the weather
reports this week I knew
many of them were having
snowstorms and I chuck-
led to myself thinking
about it. In one Christmas
card, was the familiar title,
"I'm dreaming of a white
Christmas." Then at the
bottom of the card, they
scribbled, "Don't you miss
all the snow this time of
the year?" Then they drew
a series of smiley faces.
I smiled and for a few
moments, one brief mo-
ment, I did miss all that
snow.
The Gracious Mistress
of the Parsonage saw
me smiling and asked,
"Who sent the Christmas
cards?"
I told her who the
cards were from and add-
ed, "They think we miss
all that snow." We then
shared a hearty laugh
together and went about
our own business.
I just could not get it
out of my mind. Did I
miss all that snow? What
a question.
I put my thinking ma-
chine in gear and began
processing the Christ-
mases we celebrated up
north where there was
plenty of snow. As I begin
thinking, I did begin miss-
ing all that snow.
Then it dawned on
me what snow was all
about.
At times, we forget
some details of our mem-
ories and only think of the
positive and good aspects.
Do not get me wrong.
Snow looks wonderful
on a Christmas card. I do
not mind watching a TV
program where plenty of
snow is falling and people
are singing Christmas
carols. I rather enjoy it in
those venues.
The question is, did I
miss all that snow?


My answer goes some-
thing like this. Yes, I do
miss all that snow! Fur-
thermore, I plan to miss
all that snow for the rest
of my life.
The basic reason I
moved to Florida when I
did was that I do not like
snow. I like looking at
snow on a Christmas card
but I do not like looking
at snow through my car
window.
It is not so much that
I do not like driving in
snow; it is the other idi-
ots coming at me who do
not know how to drive in
snow and do not know
how to stay in their own
lane.
I remember the last
time I did any driving in
snow I ended up almost a
complete nervous wreck.
People drive in snow as
though they do not know
how to drive in snow.
Yes, I do miss the snow,
and the cold and being
snowed in did I mention
the cold?
Some things you can
live without and as far
as I am concerned this
is one.
Only one Bible charac-
ter seemed to enjoy snow,
God said to Job, "Hast
thou entered into the trea-
sures of the snow? Or hast
thou seen the treasures of
the hail?" (Job 38:22).
When God was trying
to get Job to see is that no
matter what your circum-
stances are, that is not the
end. Look beyond your
problems and difficulties
and see the hand of God
who created all things and
then called them "good."
In every circumstance you
will find some treasure of
God's amazing grace..

BEREAVEMENT COLUMN

The road to recovery


By TRACY RENEE LEE

When a family expe-
riences a death, almost
every member of the
household mourns, in-
cluding the family dog.
There are positive and
proven ways that help
one cope and recover
from the loneliness and
depression experienced
with the death of a loved
one.
It is important to keep
in mind, however, that
not everyone mourns
or recovers in the exact
same way.
Exercise is good for
the heart, body and soul.
A 20 to 40 minute aerobic
activity results in im-
provement in the survi-
vor's state of mind.
Religion offers hope
for the future and forgive-
ness for the past. It can
be a source for counsel-
ing and re-socialization,
a gateway back to re-
covery.
Family and friends can
be a great resource for re-


cover. Traveling to visit
loved ones in other areas
or having them visit the
survivor, offers compan-
ionship that is familiar,
uplifting and relative to
their life's experiences.
Hobbies occupy the
mind and hands. They
engage our brains and
keep them in good
health.
Psychotherapy is
sometimes warranted.
Counseling can help a
survivor identify habits
and encourage positive
growth.
A support group is a
scheduled gathering of
people with common ex-
periences and concerns.
It provides emotional
and moral support, as
well as new perspectives
on life, increased under-
standing of grief, and
close personal ties.
Traditions are also a
wonderful tool for grief
recovery. Observing tra-
ditions that were once
enjoyed with the de-
ceased, helps up accept


that they are gone from
us physically, yet with us
still, through the activi-
ties and love we shared
together.
Animal companion-
ship typically results in
fewer migraines and less
persistent fears. Taking
Fido out for a brisk walk
will provide both of you
healthier opportunities
for exercise, socialization
and companionship.
People have a strong


need for communica-
tion and companionship.
Through support groups,
church, friends and fam-
ily we are able to recall,
reclaim and rekindle our
most cherished memo-
ries.
As Christmas is upon
us, it is even more im-
portant that we offer our
companionship to those
we know who have lost a
loved one this past year.
Be thankful for your
cheer and share a mo-
ment of life with some-
one who has suffered the
sorrows of death.

BASKETBALL


War Eagles fall to Godby,


beat North Florida Christian


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net

The Wakulla War
Eagles lost to the God-
by Cougars on Thurs-
day, Dec. 12, 74-51, but
bounced back on Satur-
day, Dec. 14, defeating
North Florida Christian
by a score of 66-64.
Wakulla hung in with
Godby during the first
half, but the Cougars kept
hitting 3-point shots and
pulled away from the
War Eagles.
Dontavious White was
named Wakulla's player
of the game: "Dontavi-
ous led Wakulla in scor-
ing with 12 points on
5-of-8 shooting, grabbed
3 rebounds, and added
a steal and a block... His
solid overall performance
was the lone bright spot
for the weary War Eagles,
who seemed sluggish
throughout the contest
and could not mount a
serious challenge once
the Cougars got out to a
double digit lead."
Against NFC, the game
was tied at the half 27-27,
but the War Eagles pulled
the game out in the sec-

Dec. 20, for a game at 7:30
p.m. and then host Jeffer-
son County on Saturday,
Dec. 21.


By JESSE POTTS
WMS Coach

The Wakulla Middle
School Wildcats have
been improving with
every game of the 2013
season.
On Dec. 5 they pulled
out an impressive road
victory against the Riv-
ersprings Midle School
Bears. The team played
great team defense and
were aggressive offensive-


ly, led by 8th grader Ce-
phus Greene who scored
20 points and was 3-3
from the free throw line.
Antwan Thomas fin-
ished the game with 8
points in the paint.
The defensive charge
was sparked by Rawn
Brooks.
Although halfway
through the season, the
Wildcats have played a
very difficult schedule
with road games in Madi-


son and Taylor County.
In addition to Greene
and Thomas, WMS will
also lose five more 8th
graders who have a played
a tremendous role to the
Wildcats success: Anthony
Modzelewski, Travoris
McWhite, Austin Nichols,
Corbin Bodiford, and Ty-
rone Greene,
The Wildcats won
against Florida High,
Franklin County, and Ma-
clay.

Cold weather should drive


fish into the rivers


Here we are a little
less than a week for
Christmas. If you haven't
told Santa you wanted a
new rod and reel or new
boat you better hurry.
It feels like winter
right now but it's sup-
pose to warm back up
by the weekend. We'll
be coming off of a full
moon so the tides will
not be real strong.
I went down to the
Aucilla a couple of weeks
ago with some neigh-
bors. We were going to
the Econfina and some-
one said they were catch-
ing trout in the Aucilla.
They had only fished
there once or twice and
didn't know the river.
It had been a long time
since I had been down
there but we fished five
of the old spots I always
did well in and all of
them produced fish.
We had three limits
of trout by 11:30 from
one spot and then went
to three other spots and
just threw those back.
I think we released
15 more and 4 of them
were over 20 inches. We
also caught a few reds.
We used MirrOLures and
the Gulp.
There was another
boat in there trolling
what looked to be a Rat-
tlin Redfin and they were
doing really well.
Richard Gardner
fished with Jim O'Neil
last week and they start-
ed out at St. Marks and
then came over to Oyster
Bay. They caught lots
of small reds and small
trout. At the end of the
day they fished the St.
Marks River and again
caught trout and reds

and three big sheep-
shead. They fished live
shrimp and the Gulp.
Capt. David Fife has
still been catching plenty
of nice trout around Oys-
ter Bay and the Spring
Creek area using Mir-
rOLures and live bull
minnows.
He fished Monday
and limited out on trout
and had one 25-inch red
and lost another one.
He was fishing around
Purify Bay.
Last weekend I got
invited down to North
Palm Beach to go fishing
for sailfish. I have never
been a big fan of going

out and trolling all day
but three days on a 70-
foot Striker changed the
way I thought about that
type of fishing.
We fished two kites
off the outriggers and
two lines hanging down
from the lines attached
to the kites. We fished
with live goggle eyes.
The captain really just
kept putting boat in and
out of gear drifting along
with the kites making
sure they stayed up. You
were continually reeling
in line and letting line
out to keep the goggle
eyes just under the wa-
ter.
The first day we didn't
catch any sails but I did
catch my first Wahoo
which weighed about 50
pounds.
The next two days
we caught, released and
tagged seven sails I
was fortunate enough to
catch two of them.
We would have had
nine but lost one to a
cut line and one to a line
that got tangled around
the end of the rod and
broke.
The largest one
weighed about 70 pounds
and I had no idea these


fish fought so hard.
We were using Penn
International 16's with
30-pound mono and 100
pound leader. I was fish-
ing with the same per-
son I was supposed to
fish with in the Bahamas
this year but didn't make
it because of an expired
passport.
Hopefully I will get
invited back next year to
fish for sailfish again.
One of the coolest
parts was there were
boats out there that were
probably 20 feet long.
We could see the condos
on the beach and the
water was 160 feet deep.
Pretty amazing!
I talked to the folks
at Shell Island and they
said lots of fish were be-
ing caught in the river up
past the power plant and
also up the Wakulla River
in the deep holes. There
are plenty of nice reds,
sheepshead and man-
grove snapper around.
This cold weather
we're having right now is
gonna keep them in the
rivers and the Aucilla,
Econfina, Ochlockonee
and St. Marks should
all be good places to
fish this weekend, if it
doesn't rain.
I won't have another
article until after Christ-
mas so I hope you and
your family have a very,
merry Christmas.
Good luck and good
fishing!

a peek into life on and under the water


BUnderwater

By Gregg Stanton 3)V k llAT


Scooters


Winter brings out the cave divers and their toys.
Our cave waters are clearing up as the effects of
the heavy summer rains flush into the ocean. Some of
these cave systems are long, many miles long, requiring
an underwater motorcycle, a DPV (diver propulsion
vehicle), or scooter for short.
A DPV usually consists of a pressure resistant water-
tight casing containing a battery-powered electric mo-
tor, which drives a propeller. The most common type
of DPV tows the diver who holds onto handles on the
stern. Military scooters would take up an additional
column to discuss (see Wikipedia for more details)!
The first scooters were torpedo shaped tubes filled
with batteries and ridden like a horse. Ribricoff in the
late 1960s added cameras and rode his system while
photo documenting the reef. Aquazepp and Farallon
scooters in the 1970s became very popular as a diver
towing vehicle, unlike the riding style, and soon found
their way into the caves of Florida.
Swimming 60 meters between the 200-plus Stone
Crab artificial reefs modules we had planted that year
just took too long to monitor. As a diving scientist
on that project, I used the Farallon scooter to travel
between reef modules off Cedar Key. The problem
became obvious when the battery ran out and you
were far from the boat. Fortunately we had boat ten-
ders to come pick us up when the juice ran out. I still
have a half dozen of them in my shop, left over from
a different era.
The recreational diving market loves toys as much
as we do. They spun out small tow scooters called
Teknas. The Appolo/Dacor/Torpedo also made a small
scooter in the 1980s. Today there are many underwater
human propulsion machines available, from a sit-down
mini sub to something you strap on your scuba tank
or legs.
There are fan looking contraptions to long slender
torpedoes. Divers don't need to swim anymore!
When cave exploration in the Woodvile Karsk Plain
began in the mid 1980s, Bill Gavin began making a
serious scooter that carries his name to this day. This
week we had three Gavin scooters in our facility, under
various states of repair. They are very heavy, large and
solid construction. But when in the water and properly
trimmed out, they are neutrally buoyant. I call them
tractors rather than scooters as they can pull two div-
ers from a mile in a cave safely out to sunlight. And
that's what counts!
To test that idea, Dr. Joerg Hess took his Gavin
scooter to the back of Jackson Blue Springs in Marianna
towing me (both on a rebreather). We then spent an
hour nearly a mile back in the cave, had lunch on a
rock in the stratosphere room (all underwater) and then
towed us both back with not so much as a hiccup.
Today, there are several companies that make scoot-
ers for the serious diver, and they are not inexpensive.
The Florida based Silent Submersion Magnus is small
and so powerful that it twists the diver when turned
on. A helmet and tight fitting mask is highly recom-
mended. It also costs $6,000 each.
The Divex scooter out of Washington State is made
of aluminum and driven by a brushless motor at half
the cost but much less power. European scooters are
also making their way into the USA competing for the
cave divers attention.
I have a Divex scooter but I would rather swim
myself. I am impressed with the culture surrounding
the Gavin Scooter as I often see them returning for
service after almost 30 years.
Scooters have become so engrained in diving cul-
ture that some training agencies focus all their diving
standards based upon the expectation that you will
drive a scooter underwater one day.

WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)


Celebration time for drivers, gun owners and the rest


By DARA KAM
THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

TALLAHASSEE, Dec. 13 It's
the season of giving, and Flor-
ida drivers, gun-toting college
students and non-believers all
got treats this week.
Gov. Rick Scott touted a $400
million reduction in vehicle
registration fees as part of a
proposal to cut taxes and fees
by $500 million for Floridians
as he seeks reelection to a sec-
ond term. Legislative leaders
jumped on board the registra-
tion fee rollback this week, four
years after they hiked the fees
to help plug a budget hole.
A divided appeals court,
meanwhile, sided with gun
owners who objected to the
University of North Florida's
ban on guns in cars on campus,
overturning a lower court ruling
and possibly opening the door
for a Supreme Court decision.

SCOTT: GIVE DRIVERS
A(FEE) BREAK

Scott's proposed $401 mil-
lion reduction in vehicle regis-
tration fees is part of a larger
$500 million tax-and-fee-cut
package that's the governor's
top priority for the 2014 legisla-
tive session.
The rollback would shrink
what it costs to register a "typi-
cal automobile" by $25.05, from
$71.85 to $46.80. That would
bring the fees back to where
they stood before the GOP-
dominated Legislature hiked
the fees in 2009 to close a $5
billion budget gap during the
recession.
"I have one message today
for every Florida family: We are
going to undo the 54 percent
tax increase you saw in 2009 to
register your motor vehicles.
This means around $400 mil-
lion annually will be given
back to Florida families. This
has never been government's
money it's your money and
I look forward to working with
the Florida Legislature to return
it back to you," Scott said in a
statement after announcing his
plan in Tampa.
Senate budget chief Joe


Negron, R-Stuart, proposed a
smaller rollback during the 2013
legislative session that would
have been offset by doing away
with a tax break for insurance
companies. Negron's plan died
in the House.
But Scott was flanked by leg-
islative leaders at the announce-
ment of his plan in Tampa.
And, without giving a flat-out
endorsement, Senate President
Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, indicat-
ed Scott would get the support
of his chamber.
"We welcome the governor
getting on Joe Negron's band-
wagon," Gaetz told reporters.
Even Scott's competitor-in-
chief Charlie Crist, a Democrat
who signed off on the fee
increases as the (then-Republi-
can) governor, gave Scott back-
handed praise for the plan.
Crist's campaign noted that
the fees have been in place
longer under Scott than they
were under Crist, who made a
losing bid for the U.S. Senate as
an independent in 2010 instead
of seeking another four years in
the governor's mansion.
"When these fees were
passed by Rick Scott's colleagues
and signed into law they were
never meant to be permanent,"
Crist said in a statement issued
by his campaign. "I'm surprised
it,s taken this long for Governor
Scott to realize that it's time to
roll these fees back better late
than never."

SCOTT AND CRIST
CAMPAIGN (CASH) UPDATES

The scrap over vehicle fees
is just a taste of what's certain
to be an ugly, year-long throw-
down between Scott, hoping
to keep his 700 North Adams
St. address, and Crist, eager to
move back in.
Crist raked in about $3 mil-
lion in his first month on the
campaign trail, with about two-
thirds of that going to his "Char-
lie Crist for Florida" political
committee. His backers boast-
ed that was an astronomical
amount for a non-incumbent.
But Scott's haul eclipsed
Crist's. Scott's "Let's Get to
Work" political committee


brought in $5.87 million in
November nearly twice that
of his opponent's overall take
- and brought the committee's
total contributions this year to
nearly $20 million.
Scott also officially filed his
campaign papers Tuesday, the
same day campaign-finance re-
ports were due. Political junkies
will get more timely fixes over
the next year thanks to cam-
paign law revisions approved
by the Legislature earlier this
year. The new law hiked cam-
paign contribution limits from
$500 to $3,000 for statewide
candidates like Scott and Crist
and now require the reports
to be filed monthly instead of
quarterly.

LAWYERS, GUNS AND
MONEY

The 1st District Court of Ap-
peal struck a blow to university
and college presidents and sid-
ed with gun rights advocates in
a case against the University of
North Florida filed by student
Alexandria Lainez and Florida
Carry Inc. The case challenged
a rule barring students from
keeping guns in their cars on
campus.
In a full-court decision, the
judges ruled 12-3 that universi-
ties and colleges lack the au-
thority to regulate guns. That
power rests solely with the
Legislature, which pre-empted
local governments and state
agencies from regulating fire-
arms in a 2011 law that led to
people with concealed weapons
permits being allowed to bring
them into the state Capitol, the
court ruled.
Under state law, guns are
banned on school and univer-
sity properties, with an excep-
tion carved out for people who
secure firearms in their cars.
However, the law also says that
school districts can waive that
exception, meaning they can
also bar guns in vehicles on
school property.
"The statute clearly grants
school districts the power to
waive the exception not col-
leges or universities," Judge L.
Clayton Roberts wrote for the


majority. "UNF attempted to
exercise this waiver in adopt-
ing the operative regulation;
however, UNF is not a 'school
district.' "
The ruling drew seven sepa-
rate opinions from the 15-
member bench. The majority
opinion drew eight votes, with
some of the members drafting
separate, concurring opinions,
while four other judges joined a
different opinion agreeing with
the court's result.
In a strongly-worded dissent,
Judge Philip Padovano wrote
that universities have separate
powers granted in the consti-
tution.
"These opinions pursue dif-
fering legal theories but they all
arrive at the same conclusion:
that a state university is power-
less to prohibit students from
bringing firearms to school," Pa-
dovano wrote. "This remarkable
conclusion is not supported in
the law, and with due respect
for my colleagues, I believe that
it defies common sense."
A UNF spokeswoman said
the university has not decided
whether to appeal the ruling,
hailed by Florida Carry.
"Post-secondary education
students are no longer under
threat of arrest, and at public
universities and colleges, no
longer under threat of academic
or administrative sanctions for
having lawfully stored firearms
in their vehicles while attend-
ing classes," the organization
said in an analysis of the opin-
ion on its web site.

AIRING GRIEVANCES,
SHOWING STRENGTH

A South Florida blogger
angered by a Nativity scene in
the Capitol festooned the state
building with holiday cheer of
a different sort.
Chaz Stevens of Deerfield
Beach erected a "Festivus" pole
made of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer
cans to protest what he called
the ridiculousness of allow-
ing a manger scene in a state
building.
For those who aren't "Sein-
feld" fans or who haven't
paid attention to the national


news Stevens's pole has made
- Festivus is a non-commercial
"holiday" festival "for the rest
of us" in the Christmas and
year-end holiday season.
Festivus, celebrated Dec.
23, comes with a ceremonial
post-dinner "airing of the griev-
ances" in which participants
describe how they have been
disappointed by others in the
past year and engage in "feats
of strength."
While Florida's elections
have long been the butt of late-
night jokes, the Festivus pole,
which went up on Wednesday,
is the latest bit of Sunshine
State shtick making the rounds.
Stevens appears to be enjoying
the notoriety.
The Nativity scene, put up
on Dec. 3 by the Florida Prayer
Network, opened a floodgate
of others seeking equal time
in on the first floor. So far, the
Department of Management
Services has approved applica-
tions from two groups of athe-
ists: the Tallahassee Atheists
requested a 4-by-5-foot sign
that says "Happy Holidays" and
"There are many reasons for
the season, celebrate the one
that you choose." The American
Atheists Florida Regional Direc-
tors proposed a similar-sized
poster that says "Celebrate the
true meaning of Xmas!" The
Wisconsin-based Freedom From
Religion Foundation also put
up a seasonal banner featur-
ing Benjamin Franklin and the
Statue of Liberty. No word yet
on whether DMS will sign off
on an application from the Sa-
tanic Temple of Tallahassee.

STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov.
Rick Scott proposed a $401
million vehicle registration-fee
reduction.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
"What's the point? There is
no point. It's ridiculous. This
is the most ridiculous thing I
could come up with." Chaz
Stevens, an atheist who erected
a Festivus pole made of Pabst
Blue Ribbon beer cans in the
Capitol.

WHITE'S WINES


For value, avoid the familiar


By DAVID WHITE

'Tis the season to
party.
With 2014 just a few
weeks away, holiday
party season is in full
swing. So hosts every-
where are assembling
menus, fretting about
guest lists, and blowing
their budgets on deco-
rations. Fortunately,
selecting wines doesn't
have to be stressful or
expensive.
Just avoid the famil-
iar. As New York Uni-
versity economics pro-
fessor Karl Storchmann
recently explained to
Food & Wine, "[The mar-
ket] adds a premium
for certain places or
grapes."
Consider Cham-
pagne.
Under European
Union trade laws, wine
can only be sold as
"Champagne" if it comes
from the Champagne
region of France and is
made in the "traditional
method," which is a
very expensive process.
While real Champagne
is a treat, it's expensive
- even "budget" options
cost upwards of $35 per
bottle.
Like Champagne,
America's iconic wine
regions are pricey. Napa
Valley makes some ex-
ceptional Cabernet Sau-
vignon. But it's nearly
impossible to find a de-
cent bottle for less than
$35. Sonoma County's
Russian River Valley
produces some lovely
Chardonnay, but most
cost $25 or more.
The list goes on. Tro-
phy regions are almost
always expensive.
Fortunately, the
world is awash in af-
fordable, great-tasting
wine. As Storchmann
explained, just as some
regions come with a


built-in surcharge, oth-
ers come with a built-
in discount. Finding
such wines is as easy as
opening up your palate
to unheralded regions.
Storchmann should
know. In addition to
teaching at New York
University, he edits the
Journal of Wine Eco-
nomics. So he spends
quite a bit of time study-
ing these issues.
With sparkling wine,
there are plenty of af-
fordable options so
long as you're willing
to forgo Champagne.
Two of my favorite
sparklers from America,
the entry-level bottlings
from Roederer Estate
and Domaine Carneros,
can be found for less
than $20. More afford-
able options are found
outside the States. For
around $15, Graham
Beck in South Africa
makes a delightful bub-
bly. If you're only look-
ing to spend about $10,
consider Cava, a Span-
ish wine that's pro-
duced just like Cham-
pagne but using native
grapes.
After all, no one is
going to ask if they're
drinking "real" Cham-
pagne while jockeying
for position under the
mistletoe.
Wines from Spain
and South Africa are
worth considering
when stocking up for
a party.
When I'm asked to
help select a crowd-
pleasing white, I of-
ten suggest Albarino,
a high-acid, aromatic
variety grown across
northwest Spain. Good
Albarino is almost al-
ways a hit, as it's ap-
pealing to almost every
white wine drinker it
has qualities that re-
mind me of Riesling,
Chardonnay, and Sau-


vignon Blanc.
For around $15, I'm
particularly fond of the
offering from Paco &
Lola. But affordable
and delicious options
abound.
When I'm asked to
help select a crowd-
pleasing red, I typically
steer people towards
Spanish Grenache. Most
Spanish vintners pro-
duce Grenache that's
juicy and approachable,
like Pinot Noir, but ripe,
like Cabernet Sauvi-
gnon. So it appeals to
almost every red wine
drinker.
For around $15, Bode-
gas Borsao's Tres Picos
is an amazing value.
Of course, it's im-
portant remember the
crowd. While values
are easier to find with
obscure grapes from
outside popular wine
regions, some guests
might be terrified of
grapes with names they
can't pronounce. This
is where South Africa
crushes it.
When I'm asked to
select budget friendly
Chardonnay and Caber-
net Sauvignon, I almost
always look to South
Africa. The entry-level
offerings from Glen Car-
lou, a winery in Paarl,
South Africa, are always
impressive.
Wine is agricultur-
al. So if you and your
guests crave the iconic,
you don't have a choice.
But your wallet will
thank you if you leave
your comfort zone.

White-tailed deer are a pest and source of meat


By Les Harrison
By Les Harrison


Perceptions of real-
ity are always based on
a point-of-view. Change
the perspective and the
object's features, ben-
efits and negative traits
are all altered.
This is especially
true with one of Wakul-
la County's most easily
identified wild crea-
tures, the white tail
deer.
Depending on the
respondent, it is a
shrub-eating pestilent,
a source of meat, or an
innocent and beautiful
forest creature with
big eyes and long eye-
lashes.
Odocoileus virgin-
ianus osceolais is the
scientific name of the
white-tailed deer sub-
species living in Wakul-
la County and much
of Panhandle Florida.
It is a member of the
Cervidae family which
includes moose, elk,
and reindeer.
The white-tailed
deer's home range ex-
tends from Canada to
Peru. There are more
than 40 subspecies

which cover this ter-
ritory, each with their
own unique features.
The first fossil re-
cord of deer date back
to the Oligocene ep-
och about 30 million
years ago. These early
European deer were
small by contemporary
standards, but grew to
impressive dimensions
over time.
The Irish Elk was the
largest of these early
deer. It stood about
seven feet at the shoul-
der and had a 12-foot
wide set of antlers.
The term deer dates
back to Old English
and was applied to
any kind of wild ani-
mal. Over the years
the use was refined to
only members of the
Cervidea family.
Disney movies and
plush toy makers have
turned the deer into
a touchstone for the
warm and fuzzy as-
pects of nature for a
particular segment of
the population.
Who could not root
for Bambi as he escaped
from the hunters.
Farmers, homeown-
ers, and landscape man-
agers usually have a
different opinion about
deer. A herd of deer are
an eating plague of Old
Testament proportion.
Even on a moonless
night, a deer herd can

mow down a multi-
acre field of vegetable
transplants and be
well gone by daylight.
The situation is com-
pounded by the lack
of traditional predators
which eat livestock and
people too.
Homeowners and
landscape managers
do not fair any better.
Depending on the time
of year, deer consider
many popular land-
scape plants a tasty
respite from the usual
acorns and twigs.
Deer have no con-
cerns about turning a

$10,000 plant installa-
tion job into a moon-
scape. Owners awaken
to a horticultural night-
mare.
Unfortunately, there
are no plants or shrubs
deer will not eat. For
the deer, it is a choice
of the best menu alter-
native in a particular
setting.
There are a few con-
trol methods, but each
require a commitment
and a cost. A large vis-
cous dog is effective,
but there are other
concerns with this
method.


Home remedies,
such as hair from a
barbershop, may be of
some value. However,
they usually degrade in
the sunshine or wash
away with the first
rain.
Commercially made
repellants are available
in retail outlets and on
the internet. They too
suffer the same short-
comings as many home
remedies.
Fencing over six feet
tall can work especially
if used in conjunction
with a charged electric
fence 10 feet in front


of the other fencing
material. The downside
is the expense and the
elimination of a view.

Volunteers, or "elves," help get donated items to families in need on Saturday at the community center.


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
editor@thewakullanews.net
The families started lining
up early Saturday morning at
the community center.
This year there were 300
families picking up donations
of goods given by the com-
munity almost 100 more
than last year.
This was the fourth year
of Operation Santa, which
has become the largest single
effort of the year to help local
families in need. It is coordi-
nated by the youth coalition,
which is comprised of differ-
ent community partners.


This year, the effort had
grown, and in addition to the
donated items at the com-
munity center and Farmshare
food in the parking lot, there
were donated household
items, Bibles, more boxes of
food at the extension office
and even more food from Sec-
ond Harvest at Crawfordville
United Methodist Church.
The force behind this ef-
fort was, again, Wakulla Coali-
tion for Youth's Bruce Ashley
and Gail Campbell.

Did you know? r a
When you shop
with local merchants
more of your money stays closer
to home; supporting your local parks,
recreation centers, libraries and other
things that make this community a great place to live.
Shopping local can stimulate and help restore a poor economy!


Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the
impacts of those decisions.
Your dollars spent in locally owned businesses have three times the impact on your
community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously
create jobs, fund more services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development.
Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits
Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by giving back to the community, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to
local causes.
Shop local and keep your local dollars
circulating in your home town!

From Wyett
To: Santa


Dear Santa,
This letter is from a
81 years great grand-
mother. I am blessed
with 19 great grand-
children. I am not
asking for all of them,
Some are from a fam-
ily who can care for
them, but I have two
who will not have a
good Christmas un-
less we can help them.
1) Taylor Kicks 8 yrs
(his father in in jail
and mother is work-
ing anywhere she can
find work with luck,
2) Dakota Lovett, 10
yrs. (his father and
mother is in jail. I
know this doesn't look
good for their family.
Christmas looks very
far away, please if you
can help them have a
good Christmas? I am
a widow woman living
on a fixed income.
And don't see where I
can help this year.
They have a grand-
mother and grandfa-
ther but my son drives
a truck and trying
to keep three house-
holds going is hard
on him. He needs an
operation, but cannot
afford one. I'm not


asking for him, but
the kids. If you have
something left over
on your run, please
stop at their grand-
father's house. Chris


and Ginger Harrell
or I can pick up for
them and put under
their tree. Please call
on me, Ruth Miller
926-8030.

Community comes together for Operation Santa


From Page 1B

On Saturday, watch-
ing the people stream
through the community
center aided by volun-
teers or "elves," as they
were called, Ashley es-
timated that more than
1,400 people in the com-
munity were receiving
help that day.
Campbell noted that
70 percent of the families
were new.
One of the most touch-
ing moments, Ashley
said, was a woman who
came in to adopt a fam-
ily and make a donation.
Last year, she had been
one of those getting help
- and wanted to help oth-
ers this year.
Another touching sto-
ry was about the Bibles
that were distributed. Op-
eration Santa had been
approahced about the
possibility of presenting
Bibles, and Bill Daniel, a
missionary who had trav-
eled and ministered to
people all over the world,
provided them.
In mid-November,
Daniel, of Tallahassee,


ordered the Bibles and
brought them to Wakulla
County.
Daniel died on Dec. 9.
In addition to physical
items, families coming
through also got informa-
tion on what services are
available nearby.
They got a voucher for
a turkey from Wal-Mart,
and some got gas cards.
In addition to all the
fresh produce being given
away, there were boxes
of household items like
laundry detergent and toi-


PHOTOS BY GAIL CAMPBELL/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
let paper. There were also .
boxes of non-perishable ji
food items pasta, cereal, J
canned foods being
passed out at the exten-
sion office.
Extension agent Shel-
ley Swenson noted all the
food items were bought
at local grocery stores.
At Crawfordville UMC,
there were gloves and
hats being given out.
High school students
from ROTC, AVID and
Interact were among the
volunteers.


OPERATION SANTA: Clockwise from above, dis-
tribution of fresh produce from Second Harvest at
Crawfordville UMC; volunteers at the community
center; the line at the community center when the
distribution began on Saturday morning.

from the sheriff's office.
The event featured food, candy,
prize giveaways, face painting, balloon

Christmas in Sopchoppy


Santa Claus arrived by firetruck right
on time and right before the rain
started,
Dozens of children got to give their
Christmas wish list to the right jolly old
elf inside the historic railroad depot.
Outside, vendors selling arts and
crafts and activities and food were set
up until the rain got heavy in the after-
noon,


The event was sponsored by the Sop-
choppy Preservation and Improvement
Association,
At right, Maliki Shepherd, 3, turned
shy when he got on Santa's lap,
despite pleading from grandmother
Denise Morse. Macon Metcalf, who
has been Santa in Panacea for years,
was Sopchoppy Santa this year.
