This is an inclusive event, said Jenny Jones, president of the coalition, and we invite the whole community to celebrate the life of a great man who represented fairness and justice for all people. As Dr. King said in his I Have a Dream speech, We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We should also remember that Dr. King wrote, preached, spoke up when necessary, Jones said. He lived a non-violent life, winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, but died a violent death, assassinated in his prime at age 39, while helping to serve and help the least of these, the sanitation workers of Memphis, Tenn. As he said in his speech just the day before he died, Let us keep the issues where they are. The issue is injustice. The issue is the refusal of Memphis to be fair and honest in its dealings with its public servants. By BETH ODONNELLAssistant SuperintendentWakulla High School earned an A when high school grades for 2013 were recently released by the Florida Department of Education. This is the second year in a row WHS has made an A in the revised grading system for high schools. High school grades are released later than school grades for elementary and middle schools. In addition to state test scores, other factors such as graduation rate, industry certi cations, and college entrance exams scores are included in the high school grades, so it takes several months longer for this data to be gathered and checked by the Florida Department of Education. Everyone in the school system can take pride in the high schools accomplishment since the major-Observance set for MLK DayBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net In the wake of the Citizens for Humane Animal Treatments departure from the adoption center next door, the Wakulla County Animal Shelter has had their hands even more full than usual. But, said Animal Control Of cer Ivanhoe Carroll, the shelter is anything but closed. Were still here, she said. Were still providing a safe place for lost, homeless and unwanted animals. Animal Control is a county entity that reports to Fire and Rescue and, ultimately, the Board of County Commissioners. Were responsible for code enforcement and enforcing state statute, Carroll said. Were concerned with the safety of the citizens and welfare of the animals. Currently, in an effort ll the void of an empty county adoption center, Carroll said that the county is preparing to issue a request for proposals to see if another group may want to operate the adoption center. My understanding is that the same things that were extended to CHAT will be offered to the new entity, Carroll said. As a shelter, the division is not responsible for adoptions. There is a difference between the two, Carroll said. Were grateful to CHAT. They stepped up when nobody else would. The animal shelter is an open intake, which means they dont turn anything away. Its employees work to provide reuni cation, shelter and the placement of animals into rescue groups, which are the ones to provide adoption services as well as medical treatments and procedures such as spaying, neutering and rabies vaccines. We work with about 30 different rescue groups and we rely on them for vetting and fostering, said Carroll. Thats simply out of our hands. Despite some criticism from the community that animal control is only concerned with the turnaround of animals and not whose hands they are placed in, Carroll said that she and her colleagues do their homework on those they hand animals over to and have developed partnerships with many. We work hard and do our best to nd these animals new homes and appropriate rescues, she said. Were animal people because we love animals. Were here every day trying to nd them a good place to go. Carroll said that they, at the shelter, believe its better for an animal to go elsewhere than for it to just sit in a cage for too long. We let someone else try to nd the animal a home if we cant, she said. A lot of times when you change the audience you can nd the animal a home. Theres always a potential owner somewhere. According to the countys ordinance, the shelter holds animals that are taken in for a period of five days. If someone doesnt come to claim the animal by then, it becomes property of the county. Thats when we get to work, Carroll said. However, in some cases because there are so many unwanted animals in Wakulla County, the topic of euthanasia is unavoidable. Its unpleasant, Carroll said, but unfortunately it is a reality. At the time that Carroll was appointed to her position in 2007, the shelter had a 74 percent euthanasia rate. Now, the rate is at a record low of 22 percent. That includes feral cats and most of those cases, Carroll said, are due to severe behavioral or medical issues. We could be a no-kill shelter, she said. But that takes the support of our community leaders. Carroll attributes the drop in the euthanasia rates to the hard work and sel essness of those she works with and those who volunteer their time.Turn to Page 5 PHOTO BY AMANDA MAYORAnimal Control Of cer Ivanhoe Carroll in her of ce with Lady, the dog, and Bertha, the cat.

Page 2 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 16, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comity of the Wakulla High War Eagles are our students from kindergarten through graduation, said Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce. The whole school system, including parents and the community, help prepare our students for futures as productive citizens. A new grading system for high schools was used for the fth year in Florida since schools began earning letter grades in 1999. Florida high school scores now derive 50 percent of their school grade from Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) and state End of Course Exams scores in Reading, Algebra, Biology, Writing, and United States History. The other 50 percent is now comprised of the following areas: graduation rate; graduation rate for at-risk students; participation and performance in Advanced Placement and college dual enrollment courses; industry certifications earned in career/technical courses; and College Readiness in reading and math, as assessed on the American College Test (ACT), and the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT). Of note, the 2013 WHS graduates exceeded the state average scores on the ACT in all areas including English, math, science, and reading. Areas that increased even more over last years point total included the success rate of students passing accelerated classes in Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, and Career and Technical Education (vocational) courses for college credit opportunities and industry certi cations. Adding even more opportunities for students like this years Automotive Technology Center and future plans for a welding program will also increase the industry certi cation component of the WHS school grade. More importantly, they will give students a head start on their careers, added Superintendent Pearce. In addition, WHS has added even more Tallahassee Community College dual enrollment classes on the WHS campus such as Engineering and English. The Graduation Rate improved as well, up from 80 percent in 2012 to 84 percent in 2013. It ranks among the top graduation rates in the state and exceeds the state average of 76 percent for 2013. WHS Principal Mike Crouch attributes the increases in reading and math scores in part to the emphasis on looking at every student and what he or she needs help with to improve. Our counselors, teachers, and administrators work hard to make sure every student has an opportunity to succeed. Its a balancing act of challenging our top students and making sure we give that same kind of attention to students who need extra help. Notes WHS Assistant Principal of Curriculum Sunny Chancy, In addition to the academic excellence our teachers bring to the classroom, it is their enthusiasm and genuine concern for our students that keep students motivated. Its also important to acknowledge that activities like sports, band, ROTC, and drama help keep students interested in coming to school. Wakulla High School continues to improve in all areas as more diverse opportunities for student success are added each year.From the Front Page Wakulla High earns an A in state gradingFrom the Front Page The bee, held Friday, Jan. 10, started with 37 contestants from Riversprings and Wakulla middle schools, COAST Charter School, Crawfordville, Medart and Shadeville elementary schools, and Wakulla Christian School.

By MICHAEL MORGANWakulla Fire ChiefOn Saturday, Jan. 11, beginning shortly after 2 p.m., Wakulla County FireResuce faced a challenge of responding to 26 calls for service plus numerous details assisting the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce. Two homes were destroyed during the severe storms that passed through the county. Several more were damaged and dozens of trees were blown down, many into power lines. One person was freed from his home by WCFR personnel and another transported to the hospital with minor injuries. Much of this work was done during a continuing driving rain storm. Fire-Rescue units from all over the county were manned and handling calls far away from their home station. WCSO Communications received a multitude of calls during the storm. They were able to coordinate and prioritize the calls so that all emergencies were handed in a timely fashion. The two power companies that provide service in Wakulla County were overwhelmed, requiring extra time for our units to standby and sometimes the wires were obviously still charged and arcing. A large portion of the population went without power for many hours.Saturdays severe storms cause damage to homes A home destroyed by a falling tree during Saturdays storm.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 16, 2014 Page 3 PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net With the holidays over and the dust from Operation Santa settling, the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth is now free to focus fully on a new grant they received through the Ounce of Prevention fund, which is supplied by the Florida Department of Health for the Community Center. At their meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 8, the board-appointed commissioner to the coalition, Ralph Thomas, reported that the community center building itself is coming together. The heating and air is done inside the new gym, Thomas said. And the Sheriffs annex across the street from the sheriffs department is scheduled to be finished in mid-March. When the new sheriffs annex is complete, the part of the community center that is currently being used by the sheriffs office will be vacated, opening it up for even more room for community services to be offered. Also, at our last meeting, Thomas said, we approved a contract between the library and the coalition to allow them to offer services at the community center. Coalition director Gail Campbell reported that the organization is currently pursuing or has obtained subcontracts with four other community entities for their services: DISC Village, NAMI Wakulla, the sheriffs athletic league and the Department of Health. Each contract will have to be approved by the county commission. Campbell said that the coalition is promising the ve entities right now, but they are sure there are many more to come. The coalition is also currently working with the county for a legal agreement and is in the process of interviewing for a couple of fulltime positions. Its going to be brilliant for this county, Campbell said. Just brilliant. This gift of a onestop community center could not have happened at a better time. Zandra Gilley and Winifred Heggins from the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida were present at the coalitions meeting on Wednesday to offer their support and to give encouragement. They stressed the importance of spending the funds as it is a state fiscal year and, at any time, the state can pull data from the system to see if outcomes are being reached. We are all under a microscope, said Heggins. That being said, the grant is somewhat flexible. Were here to work with you and help you along the way with whatever you need. Other reports were also given at the coalitions meeting on Wednesday. Coalition Chairman Bruce Ashley updated the group on happenings with the sheriffs of ce. Ashley said they have recently nished working closely with Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce and the school board in providing bullying education to the community. Honestly, the turnout was less than we had expected and hoped for, Ashley said. But I think it was well received and overall bene cial. Ashley also reported that staff has recently nished a teen driving challenge, in which youth are educated on distracted driving texting while driving, etc. and that there is another session coming. Also, said Ashley, on March 26, there will be a domestic violence education seminar held at the Wakulla Correctional Institute on best practices when it is occurring in the home. The coalitions next meeting will be at the community center on Wednesday, Feb. 5, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.Youth coalition moving forward with one-stop community centerWakulla Veteran Affairs Director J.D. Johnson was involved in a serious car accident recently while in Tampa for his son-in-laws funeral. According to the countys Communications and Public Services Director Jessica Welch, Johnson and his wife, Patricia, were involved in a collision while driving in poor conditions and were not at fault. Mrs. Johnson was not hurt in the accident, but early last week, it was reported that J.D. was in a coma. On Friday, Welch said that he has made some progress by opening his eyes and was transferred to a veterans hospital in San Antonio, Texas.Veterans o cer J.D. Johnson in coma after wreck J.D.

Maurice Langston Senior Center DirectorEditor, The News: It would be great if we had a county with a vision for the future and the exibility to deal with the present. Homeowners should not have laws restricting them from using the property they are currently using, but we do need to have zoning for rural, wetlands, housing, commercial, etc., established in such a way that someone cannot buy property and then get it rezoned to suit their wants. You shouldnt be entitled to use money or in uence to that effect. Most people in Wakulla do not live in a deed-restricted community that tells them what they can and cannot do with their home. There are tons of places to live if you prefer that lifestyle. If the people using the argument of property rights to ght the wetlands ordinance really wanted to ght against tyranny to homeowners, they would attack the odious code violation scheme that lays heavy nes on people for anonymous and arbitrary reasons. I am not against development, but it has to be done in a way that ts the community. Unfortunately, developers have been known in many places to use both rezoning in uence and code violation nes to acquire property for their use. Since I live in Panacea, which I consider a very special place with a lot of potential, I have seen how fast the developers dove in when the housing boom hit this area. This county has plenty of empty commercial sites and if you choose to sell your house right now, be prepared to get less than you thought. If we want a vision for our area, we need to nail it down soon, because when the property market returns someday, it will be much harder to do. Not just Panacea, but all of Wakulla County has the old Florida feel that people are yearning to nd. That is the best thing we have to offer people who want a day trip with the family or other tourists. Hopefully, the shing will recover and we can treat people to the sight of our local color and avors. We must make sure that what we decide today is in line with our vision for the future. Jeannie Beck Panacea Editor, The News: Recently the Apalachee Bay Volunteer Fire Department held two fundraising events, both of which were very successful. The rst gave area residents an opportunity to enjoy some of the best smoked wings in the county. Thanks to two generous residents who donated the wings there were plenty to go around. Of course, much of the credit also goes to Walter McMullen and his son, Billy, who gave up TWO hunting weekends to smoke the wings. Once the word got out that the wings were plentiful and delicious there was that desirable problem of keeping up with orders. We are both fortunate and grateful that we have so many neighbors who enjoy good eating and were willing to work up an appetite in support of their re department. The second fundraiser began on Nov. 11 and has not yet concluded. For each $10 donation made to the re department a raf e ticket was given to the donor. The promotion phase of the fundraiser ended on Dec. 31. As of Jan. 1, a raf e ticket has been selected each day the winner receives $50. Initially the hope was that enough tickets would be requested to continue the daily drawing through January. However, so many tickets were given out that more tickets had to be printed and the daily drawing will continue through Feb. 16. That is called success and the people of Wakulla County made it happen. A deep expression of gratitude is given to all those who recognized the importance of having a viable re department in the community and who so willingly jumped in to support the ongoing efforts of the Apalachee Bay volunteer department. Note: a list of daily raf e winners may be requested at email@example.com. Cynthia Webster Editor, The News: As a licensed psychologist who has worked with many suicidal clients in my career, I was pleased to read Tracy Renee Lees Bereavement Column in The News (Suicide Victims, Jan. 2 edition), with her emphasis on the importance of connection and the need to seek help in dealing with loss and depression. I would like to add to her comments by touching on the issues of stigma and risk factors. As Ms. Lee notes, surviving loved ones are likely to feel not only loss but also blame and guilt. This frequently results in stigma attached to both the people who commit suicide, that they were somehow weak, and to family members who should have somehow been able to prevent the tragic action. Neither of these assumptions is accurate, but the result is that survivors often have a dif cult time seeking assistance due to a sense of shame and friends may not know how to be helpful or supportive in the same way as they might with someone who dies from an illness such as cancer. This problem is exacerbated for the elderly whose support systems and connections to others are usually diminished. Older males who lose a partner are particularly vulnerable in this respect, resulting in that subgroup having the overall highest rate of suicide. Dr. Thomas Joiner, a colleague of mine when I worked at FSU and a national expert on suicide, has emphasized that the key components in completed suicides are this sense of loneliness and alienation combined with a feeling of that one has become a burden to others and an acquired fearlessness about death. While a suicide can sometimes seem out of the blue to others, the person who does it has typically been working up to it in thoughts and actions for a considerable time and has made some preparations (e.g., acquiring a rearm, putting affairs in order). While untreated depression remains the greatest risk factor in suicidal behavior, access to lethal means facilitates completed suicides, with over 50 percent involving the use of a rearm. It is not coincidental that while women attempt suicide three times more frequently than men, four times more men than women kill themselves. Men are also much less likely to seek treatment for psychological conditions. The unprecedented rate of suicide among young returning veterans is, in many ways, a perfect storm of these risk factors. The most current statistics released by the Department of Veterans Affairs this past week indicated that the suicide rate among veterans ages 18-24 is four times the rate of non-veterans in the same age group. The combination of exposure to death and trauma in war zones, alienation, disrupted relationships, struggles with finding employment, access to firearms and the reluctance to seek help for depression has created a truly tragic situation. The good news is that those young veterans who do receive mental health treatment have lower rates of suicide than non-veterans. We can all help by increasing our awareness of the factors involved in suicide, providing support and reducing the stigma of seeking assistance, as treatment is a proven preventative step.James Hennessey, Ph.D.Crawfordville Editor, The News: The Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment, Inc., better known as CHAT, begins the year with an exciting new presence in Wakulla County. For the past few years, CHAT leased the building adjoining the animal shelter, and served as an adoption-guarantee facility. The county recently presented CHAT with a proposed contract that would change our mission. The CHAT Board of Directors voted to end management of the Adoption Center and serve pets and citizens in other ways. We are in the process of updating our website and determining projects for the year. We are excited to share our rst project is our partnership with the Wakulla Senior Citizens Center to help with collecting and supplying pet food for the seniors the center serves through the Meals on Wheels program. Many seniors put their companion pets needs before their own by sharing their food with the pet because they have no pet food. This prevents the senior from getting the nourishment they so badly need. Now pet food will be delivered when the meals are delivered. The community can help in several ways: 1) drop bags of dry dog and cat food off at the Senior Center, 33 Michael Drive in Crawfordville, or VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital, 2571 Crawfordville Hwy; 2) donate to CHAT by sending a donation to CHAT, PO Box 1195, Crawfordville FL 32326, or via PayPal on CHAT website, chatofwakulla.org, or the donation link on our Facebook page. Please like CHAT of Wakull on Facebook to make sure you are made aware of upcoming announcements. The Board of Directors is excited to be expanding CHATs services and help throughout the community. We will have a membership drive in March and will soon share how the community can get involved.

Holding a local celebration was the brainchild of former IGC President, Hilda Starbuck. The rst Crawfordville Arbor Day celebration was held in January 2005. During the early years, tree were donated by local nurseries and transplanted from the yards of garden club members. Supplying enough trees proved dif cult, however. Soon the ICG was purchasing bareroot seedlings to give away. To improve tree survival, plastic bags were offered. Then plastic bags were replaced with a potting station where people could put their bareroot trees into pots and cover the roots with soil. Several years ago, current IGC President, Jeannie Brodhead came up with the brilliant idea of growing the bareroot trees in pots for a year before giving them away. Now IGC members plant hundreds of bareroot trees in 1-gallon pots for the next years festival. Just Fruits and Exotics Nursery generously provides space for the little trees and keeps them watered through the year. Garden club members periodically weed, mulch, and prune the young trees. The result is hundreds of healthy young trees, some 3-4 feet tall, that are much more likely to survive and thrive in their new homes. If you havent attended the Crawfordville Arbor Day Celebration since the early years, its worth stopping by on Saturday to see the quality and quantity of trees being given away. If you planted an Arbor Day tree that is living and growing, wed love to hear about it or see a photo. Please contact us at Crawfordville Arbor Day, PO Box 937, Crawfordville, FL 32326 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you on Saturday! Lynn Artz Co-Coordinator Editor, The News: After last weeks Zing in the Tallahassee Democrat, Did anyone tell the octopus (that Auburn lost), I am compelled to salvage the good name of octopus sports prognosticators and set the record straight. The octopuses at Gulf Specimen Aquarium did indeed predict that FSU would win the BCS over Auburn, even though it looked just the opposite. In the FSU-Auburn trial, four octopuses swarmed over and piled in on the Auburn crab, like football players grabbing for a fumbled ball as they squeezed down into the box in a writhing mass. Spirits among the locals recruited from the Coastal Caf and elsewhere plummeted, and it looked as if Auburn won. Meanwhile a fth octopus shot across the tank, snatched open the lid of the choice box, grabbed the FSU crab and rocketed back to its den. Spirits soared. The seers then predicted that it was a sign that Auburn would stomp FSU in the rst half, but that at the last minute the Seminoles would snatch victory away. Isnt that what happened? After football season, Im going to ask them who is going to win the wetlands war in Wakulla County, the environmentalists or the developers. Or whether the county commissioners who are up for re-election will remain or be thrown out of of ce. But in the meantime stand by, lets see what the octoes have to say about the Super Bowl next month. Jack Rudloe Gulf Specimen Byron Price, president of Apalachee Bay VFD, draws a winner.
By MAURICE LANGSTONSpecial to The NewsCitizens for Humane Animal Treatment (CHAT) voted to partner with the Wakulla Senior Citizens Council to help provide animal food for the Senior Centers new Pet Project Pet Meals-onWheels. CHAT is more than citizens, theyre champions for the cause, care, and wellbeing of animals in Wakulla County, great and small. The need for pet mealson-wheels was brought to the forefront when a meals on wheels drive reported that the serving tray we provide meals to seniors was in the yard of a seniors resident and the tray had been licked clean! Many of our senior citizens are widows or widowers and at the passing of a spouse, the family pet is transformed into the family companion and is no longer viewed as just a pet. We always take care of our companions, many times at the cost of even our individual welfare. Its called sacri ce. The senior citizens pet meals-on-wheels has been an ongoing project for the last three months at the Wakulla Senior Center. Several businesses pitched in and donated pet food to support this effort and we are grateful and thankful for each bag donated. However, we always found ourselves either running short of dog food or cat food and we needed a reoccurring partner and source so that no animal is left hungry or in need. Who better than CHAT to meet the need. All it took is one call to Heide Clifton and she put the wheels (pun intended) in motion for pet meals-on-wheels. Vice President Petra Shuff called me within minutes for more information to present to the Board of Directors of CHAT. It was voted on and approved unanimously by CHATs board to help provide, partner and be pals to the senior centers pet project. T. W. Maurice Langston, the Executive Director at the Wakulla Senior Center stated, Its amazing what 501 (c) 3 entities (not for pro t) can do for the good of people and pets when they partner with one another. At a time of government cutbacks, local non-pro ts are stepping up and are becoming a source of solace and sensitivity to populations in need whether they are two-legged or four-legged; whether they have hair and hide, fur, fins or feathers. Someone has to step up and CHAT and WSSC are new best friends! Thank you, CHAT. To learn more about C.H.A.T. or the Wakulla Senior Citizens Council, visit our respective websites and Facebook pages. You may well be surprised what is happening behind the scenes for pets and people. CHATs website will be updated shortly due to the organizations redirection of mission and goals. Our pets give us unconditional love, sharing their lives add so much to ours. Our senior citizens are the ones who have made this county the great place to live, work and raise our families. Now we/you have the opportunity to share with the ones who have brought so much happiness into our lives. What can you do? You can give of your time, talent and treasures to support both organizations.

Its amazing how many people want to help, Carroll said. We dont have much to work with, but its phenomenal how much we are able to. That being said, though, the shelter still relies on the generosity of the community and is always looking for donations and volunteers. Were doing such a good job here. We really are, Carroll said. But sometimes we get such a bad reputation. She added that if anyone would like to help or see what goes on at the shelter, they welcome visitors and volunteers any time.

(850) 926-7102 OUT TO PASTOR OK, now I rememberWe must choose how to use the tongues powerBy ETHEL SKIPPER There is power in the tongue. When I was a child, my mom would say, Child, keep your tongue from ringing. I didnt understand what she meant because I did not hear the ringing sound. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. (Proverbs 15:4) Our words are a powerful force for good or evil. Some people love to hear about drama. Still others love to perpetuate it. Truth be told, we all have a bit of a fascination with con ict and business that is not our own. The admonition in Proverbs 26 is to put out the fire of unnecessary controversy by withholding the wood of perpetual talk. For a talker, someone who keeps talking and joking, sometimes they like to stir things up and say, Oh, I was just joking. The things we say set us up for success or failure. A soft answer turneth away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger. We have a choice in how we use our words. This is the beauty and the genius of the tongue an instrument created by God for bringing order and declaring praise. Skipper Temple Church, located at 165 Surf Road in Sopchoppy, will hold its sixth annual Women of Excellence Conference. Power of Prayer on Friday night, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m. Dynamic and anointed women preachers. Send prayer requests to email@example.com. On Saturday morning, Jan. 25, from 10 a.m. to noon, intercessory prayer. Our prayers and concern go out to all the sick and shut-in, those in the hospital, nursing home, prison, jail, homeless, those who have lost loved ones, and all in need of prayer everywhere. Happy birthday on Jan. 9 to Wanda Bailey. She celebrated on Jan. 11 at the Smith-Williams Center in Tallahassee. It was a wonderful celebration with her family and friends. By JAMES L. SNYDER Memory is a beautiful thing, that is, when it is working. I must confess there are many times in which my memory is on some kind of a vacation. What I want to know is simply this, how do you know you have forgotten something if you have forgotten it? I do many things I cannot remember exactly why I do them. Behind everything I do is a reason for why I do it or those things that I do not do. I must confess I am quite a reasonable person along this line. Without memory, we can take many things for granted. We go through motions we do not know why we are going through them, we just go through them. Everybody says that when you get older your memory rather takes a backseat. That may be the case with me, I am not quite sure. I cannot remember. I must confess it is a great asset at times to have a memory failure. For instance, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage accosts me and says, Did you remember...? She may have sent me to the grocery store to fetch something or she may have sent me, God forbid, to the mall to pick up something she ordered online. When she asked this question, I always respond by saying, I forgot, you know my memory is not what it used to be. It is an easy way to slither out of something I have forgotten to do. The older I get the more plausible this excuse is, I just cannot remember why. However, on those occasions when she is a little more exasperated than others at me she will say, Your memory never was what it used to be! What that means exactly I do not know. She probably told me sometime in the past, but right now, I simply cannot recall. I am perfectly happy just forgetting that for the time. Why is it I can remember things I do not want to remember and I cannot remember the things that I need to remember? For instance, I can remember the year my wife was born, but I can never recall the month or the day. As a good husband, I should reverse that, not remember the year and positively remember the month and day. Why is it when my wife is giving me a piece of her mind, all I can remember at the time is a funny incident that happened to me earlier that morning? Smiling at a time like that is not advantageous to a happy life of the husband. When she asks, What is so funny? I cannot tell her I was not listening to her but thinking about something else. My memory was jogged earlier this week when a certain incident happened at the Post Of ce. Anybody who knows me knows that I am not in any way shape or form a hugger. I am a rm believer in what the Bible says, the right hands of fellowship (Galatians 2:9). I am vigorous in this handshaking ceremony. That is about as far as it goes. I had quite forgotten my position along this line, or rather, I should say why I came to this position. Standing in a very long line at the post office at which time I was in somewhat of a hurry to get through a lady walked in. She looked at me and says, Oh, its so nice to see you. I havent seen you for a long time. Then she caught me off guard and gave me a hug. I did not know who this woman was; I could not remember ever seeing her before. With the way my memory is these days, I pretended as if she was a long-lost friend of mine. She chatted about stuff that really did not make any sense to me at the time. I smiled and nodded my head and chatted away to her about things I am sure did not mean anything to her. I was not really paying attention and as the line moved forward, something dawned on me. You know how it is when all of a sudden something hits you. Your vacationing memory comes home and unpacks. Well, that happened to me standing there in line. By the time I had gured out what had happened, it was too late to do anything about it. When she hugged me, she stepped in front of me and therefore was ahead of me in line. I had one of those aha moments but there was nothing I could do about it at the time. I had to swallow my pride, display a contagious smile across my face and take it like a man. A man who has been outwitted by some lady he had no idea who she was. I now remember why I do not do any hugging. I know all hugs are not equal but with the memory I have I do not remember the difference and I am not taking any more chances. Driving home from the Post Of ce, I remembered the wise words of King Solomon. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). If I could just remember that, I certainly would be okay..The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at (866) 552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@ att.net. By TRACY RENEE LEE Prior to our marriage, my husband had been married once before. After his rst marriage failed, he developed a strategy for marital bliss that he faithfully applies to our marriage. The rst rule in his Strategies for Marital Bliss is, Never go to bed angry, upset or annoyed at your spouse. Seems simple enough, unless, of course, one has ever been married. Through the years, however, anger, discontent and annoyance have never been a signi cant problem for us. The reason, I imagine, is directly related to his second strategy for marital bliss. During the 1960s, the ower children coined a phrase, Love is never having to say youre sorry. My husbands second strategy for marital bliss is in direct con ict with this philosophy. His second strategy is Regardless of fault, love rushes to say sorry rst. My husbands Strategies for Marital Bliss actually apply to every relationship between human beings. Whether you are sweethearts, siblings, relatives, co-workers or acquaintances, you should seriously consider incorporating his rules, into every relationship in which you participate. While it is true that none of us is perfect, at the moment of death, imperfection is frozen. Death robs the living of the opportunity for simple resolution and blocks the comfort of peace. These lost opportunities for resolution and peace are unfortunate indeed. This undesirable state of affairs creates years of complicated grief for the bereaved survivor. The depth of stress brought on by this situation can lead to serious ailments. My best advice is to follow my husbands Strategies for Marital Bliss in ones everyday interactions and in every relationship in which one engages. If one nds that he or she is at odds with a loved one, or with anyone for that matter, try to incorporate my husbands strategies into the relationship.

Kelley Frances Lena Martin Lombard Bettye Gray Rudd Linda Carol Seres Ruby Nichols Taylor Frances Lena Martin Lombard Bettye Gray Rudd Mary Viola Crum Harvey Sheila Lynnette Stanley Brock Ruby Nichols Taylor David H. Kelley Linda Carol Seres From previous page I am certainly not advocating that a victim apologize to a perpetrator for any abuse or crime in- icted upon them. What I am suggesting, is that you try to forgive. Forgiveness will bring you the most comfort possible. Do not continue the cycle of victimization at your own hands. Do what is best for you, by releasing the negative stresses of anger and hate. Once a death has occurred, victims become the unexpected losers, giving the obnoxious or abusive acquaintance, inde nite power over them. Due to their own inability to resolve their lives, the victim has perpetuated the negative control that will hamper their recovery until they are able to effect resolution within themselves. This is an extremely dif cult feat to accomplish. Turn your woes into a winning scenario; deal with the abuse while your abuser remains living. In the case of a failed marriage, no matter who is at fault, both parties lose. The same is true in life and death. Do not rob yourself of peace, do not rob yourself of happiness and certainly, do not rob yourself of bliss. Take care of un nished business today before your head hits the pillow.

There are flavored cigars, tobacco leaves, smokeless, chew, snuff, snus, hookah and dissolvable tobacco. In short, a wide variety of candy and fruit avored tobacco products are available in communities throughout Florida, including Wakulla County, despite overwhelming evidence that these deadly products appeal to youth and can lead to a lifetime of tobacco addiction. The past 12 months have been busy for the Wakulla County Tobacco Free Partnership and Students Working Against Tobacco(SWAT) in their fight against candy flavored tobacco products. In November 2012, the Wakulla County Commission unanimously adopted an ordinance restricting the sale of candy- avored tobacco products in the county. Proposed by then Commissioner Alan Brock, a huge supporter of the Tobacco Prevention Program, the ordinance would have only allowed those establishments which require patrons and customers to be 21 years-old or older to enter to sell avored tobacco products. In January 2013, Tonya Hobby, Tobacco Prevention Specialist for the Wakulla County Health Department was noti ed that the ordinance was going to be placed on the January 22nd County Commissioners Meeting agenda, 10 days before the agenda was going to go into effect. Hobby immediately contacted the Tobacco Free Partnership and the SWAT Wakulla County Coordinator Molly Clore. Clore reached out to the SWAT students of Wakulla High School and the Countys Youth Advocacy Board Representative Wakulla Middle School 7th Grader Andrew Walker. At the January 22nd County Commissioner Meeting, Arien Hart and Shannon Wood, Juniors at Wakulla High School presented a video public service announcement showcasing how tobacco companies market candy avored tobacco products with the intent of attracting youth and gaining future smokers. Hart and Wood produced and filmed the video and interviewed high school students to present the opinions of the youth in our community. Andrew Walker, President of Wakulla Middle Schools Students Working Against Tobacco chapter also spoke at the meeting and urged the commission to keep the ordinance in place. In a 4-1 vote, the Commission voted in favor of repealing the ordinance. Dr. Howard Kessler proposed a workshop relating restrictions on the sale of tobacco products in the county. The workshop had members of the Commission, Tonya Hobby, Molly Clore and members of the Wakulla County Tobacco Free Partnership as well as many community members and store owners. Ronald Fred Crum, owner of Crums Mini Mall, said everyone should be against children having access to tobacco but these products are behind the counter and those who buy it must be 18 years of older. Crum said, everyone should be making an effort to enforce the law and address when children under age are using tobacco. On May 6, county commissioners voted in favor of an ordinance regulating the placement of tobacco products. The ordinance requires vendors to sell tobacco products through vendor-assisted transactions and restricts all tobacco products behind a counter in an area accessible to the personnel of the vendor. Wakulla Middle School SWAT club secretary, Ebone Davis, told commissioners: Im here to represent the students in favor of placing candy avored tobacco products behind the counters and out of the sight of children under 18 years of age. The motion of the ordinance passed with a 4-1 vote. Commissioner Ralph Thomas encouraged kids to speak out to their peers against tobacco as the best way to achieve the goals of the ordinance. New data released by the Florida Department of Health shows that 23 percent fewer Florida high school students are current cigarette smokers compared to 2010. The results indicate a decline in overall tobacco use among youth. The decrease in tobacco use among our states youth is an encouraging indication of the effectiveness of our tobacco prevention programs, yet our work is not done, said State Surgeon General Dr. John Armstrong. We in Florida are fortunate to have a comprehensive program that provides county-level community interventions and continued education for all youth. Tonya Hobby, Tobacco Prevention Specialist for Wakulla County Department of Health said, The tobacco product placement ordinance was a true collaboration of community leaders, community members and involved youth who care about the health of their peers. We will continue to work to keep these products out of the hands of our youth.Community working to bring awareness to the dangers of candyavored tobacco r FNP logo Of WakullaHeating & AirServing Wakulla & Franklin Counties850-926-5592Sales & Service All Makes & ModelsOwned & Operated by Gary Limbaugh Lic. # CAC1814304 Ed Gardner, O.D.Eye Doctor located in the Crawfordville Wal-Mart Vision CenterCall today for more information or to schedule an appointment.( 850 ) 926-6206Independent Doctor of Optometry email@example.com E d Ga r Start the year off right by taking care of yourself!

Page 10 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 16, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy MARJ LAWIve wanted to shoot trap since I rst saw four guys and a gal on a trap range. They were shooting: one after another. Orange birdies are slung into the air. When hit, they explode into bits. If not, they sail unharmed onto the eld where they break apart on the ground. Looks pretty darn easy, I thought to myself. Why should they have all the fun? So Joe lets me borrow his 12-gauge and we go to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce range in Sopchoppy to try it out. Piece of cake. I hoist the heavy gun, stretching my arms wide to be able to reach the trigger. I press my cheek against the stock and my ears (the earmuff kind) push into my eyes (protective glasses) and set them askew. Of course, I cant see now. I yell pull! and naturally the shot goes way wide. I reposition both ears and eyes and try again. Same thing happens. I push my glasses back into position so I can see. By now, the gun weighs 2.5 tons and my arms are jelly from holding it up. My shoulder hurts. And its downright disheartening to have seen those birdies sail gently onto the ground. Waah waah waah. Joe says the gun is too big for me. Duh. So our friend and instructor Michael Nappi says that to get the correct size gun, you place it on your shoulder, put your arm at a right angle to the gun, and see if your index nger reaches the trigger. I tried that with Joes gun. Naturally, that trigger was far from my nger. Joe says I need a youth stock, so we visit a local outdoor sports shop and find a youth model. We load up 7.5-grain shot and head back to the WCSO range. I rest my cheek against the stock, and the earmuff-glasses thing happens all over again. I cant see worth beans so I take off the muffs and stick squishy earplugs into my ears. They dont push the glasses over anymore. Pull! I say, and the birdie sails through the air and smashes to smithereens. Cool! Pull! I say again, and the birdie sails and sails and sails. Drat. So I finish shooting five shots, and Joe shoots ve. His birdies are dead, dead, dead. Mine laughed all the way to the ground. After Joe shoots the last of his 50 rounds, Im shooting my last five. Maybe Ive hit a dozen or so of the rest, total. It would be nice to be a good sport, but I wanna go home. Those birdies are frustrating. But Joe has taken me this far and only ve rounds are left. I try to remember to align the front sight and to sweep through the shot. Pull! and miss. Pull! and miss again. Three shots left. Im done with listening to good advice on how to aim and how to shoot. I pretend that birdie is supper and were going to eat tonight. With the stock tight to my shoulder, Im getting that darn bird. Pull! Blam! Goes the birdie. Pull! I call again. Birdie No. 49 explodes in the air. Pull! I call for No. 50. Again, blam! Pieces y every which way! Well, if you want to know the secret to hitting the birdie, I cant tell you why each one of those last three birdies dusted. Maybe its not the aim or the swing through, maybe its trying to be a good sport. Or maybe it was the thinking of birdie for dinner!Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.outdoor sports and shing reports Outdoors IF WE DONT HAVE IT WE CAN GET IT!

What better way for fans to celebrate the nail-biting victories of the Seminoles and the Knights than with a relaxing hike, picnic or stroll in a Florida State Park? Team-themed cookouts and gatherings in park pavilions are a good way to show others the pride they have in these two programs. Fans wearing FSU and UCF hats or shirts and students showing a current ID will get into a state park for half price. The offer is good for day-use of Florida State Parks on Mondays through Thursdays. FSU and UCF are winners, just like the state parks, said Donald Forgione, Director of the Florida Park Service. So its only natural that the state parks cheer on these bowl wins along with fans. The players and coaches of Floridas universities work hard and we applaud their success. Half-priced admission is good at all Florida State Parks except Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, Weeki Wachee Springs State Park and Skyway Fishing Pier State Park. This offer does not include additional usage fees, special events or Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 20. Florida State University won the Bowl Championship Series National Championship game against Auburn University on Jan. 6. The University of Central Florida beat Baylor University in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1. In October, the Florida State Parks System had its own big win, when it was awarded a third Gold Medal of Excellence from the National Recreation and Parks Association. This makes Florida the rst three-time gold medal award recipient.

Logging your trips wont guarantee you success on every outing, but it will definitely increase your chances of catching fish during every season of the year. A logbook helps you begin to notice patterns in bass movements and behavior related to water conditions, food supply, weather, type of lake, time of year and time of day. Information that should be in your logbook includes site, date, time, weather, temperature, water clarity, water conditions, barometric pressure, lake level, how you fished, depth, lure (type, size, color used and presentation), number and size of fish caught, plus anything else you think that could be helpful down the road.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 16, 2014 Page 11The following article was submitted by Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon: The first meeting of the year is always an exciting one for a Flotilla as Staff Officers take the Oath of Of ce and prepare for the new year. Staff Of cers serve an important function in a Flotilla as program area coordinators. We had 15 members and three guests in attendance. Several of our program areas are more visible to the public: Surface Operations (Phil Hill), Public Affairs (Tim Ashley), Program Visitor (Mike Harrison), Vessel Examination (Steve Hults), and Public Education (Alexander Gulde). There are also several positions that primarily support internal function of the Flotilla and Auxiliary. These include Finance (Carolyn Treadon), Member Training (Bob Asztalos), Information Systems (Duane Treadon) Materials (Mike Harrison), and Secretary of Record (Norma Hill). Additional positions that serve both members and the public include Navigations Systems (Bob Asztalos), Communications Services (Duane Treadon), Marine Safety (Tim Ashley), Diversity (Geoffery Gonzalez) and Human Resources (Raye Crews). A nal very important staff of cer position is that of Detachment Liaison for St. George Island (Dave Rabon). Each staff officer brings unique skills, talents, and backgrounds to their program area and all are very qualified to hold such of ce. The Flotilla had a special visitor from Division in attendance, Ellena Roland, the Division staff of cer for Public Affairs and Publications. Ellena is an impassioned speaker. Her pride in the Auxiliary and its critical role of promoting safe boating was evident in her dynamic talk to the Flotilla. She stressed the need to tell the Auxiliarys story as we prepare for our 75 anniversary. Educating the boating public on what we do is one way of keeping the promotion of safety boating on peoples minds. This story and discussing safe boating is often done during public affairs events and through material we pass out. It is important, she emphasized, that the boating public receive gentle reminders of the importance of safe boating during both the active boating season and the nonactive season. We were happy to report to Ellena that our public affairs and public education program areas were already working on plans to promote safe boating in the coming year. There were two important awards presented during the meeting. First, Dave Rabon received an award for the completion of over 60 program visits and free courtesy vessel exams during 2013. Daves totals for the year were nearing 100. Congratulations, Dave, for a job well done. The other award was a notice of quali- cation for Alexander Gulde. Alexander applied for and, after a rigorous screening process, was accepted into the Auxiliaries Interpreters Corps. This is a program are of the Auxiliary that supplies interpreters all acorss the world to assist not only the Coast Guard but also other governmental agencies like the State Department. Alexanders language specialty is German. Congratulations, Alexander, on making it through a very hard screening process and being chosen to serve with this elite team. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux.net for membership information or contact our Flotilla Staff Officer for Human Resources at email@example.com or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at FC@ uscgaux.net.

Our Rails-to-Trails program has long been very popular to the cycling community. Our rivers and wetlands have provided canoe and kayak trails for even more, attracting national businesses and enthusiasts for decades. Not to be left out, the Farrell property was recently advertised for sale in The Wakulla News with the potential that it could serve as a diver portal into our underground river attracting another group of people to Wakulla. Wakulla County has long been recognized as the bedroom community to Tallahassee and a natural playground to both our capital city community and a much larger national wildlife interest group. While folks are proposing multiple cycling and hiking trails departing south from Tallahassee by way of historic rail lines and pioneering trails, I would like to propose a surface and underwater trail that follows the natural underground rivers that snake through our county. By combining the two focus groups, we serve a much larger interest community that can support each others needs. Lets say, two for the price of one. Interpretive displays will document what is going on above and underground adding to the thrill of the journey, provide way stations with information, water and shelter, and safe portals around and into the Karst along this 30-plus mile thrilling trail. Like the Appalachian Trail, this trail, with its multiple entrances, will be supported with welldocumented log books, encouraging folks to take each step of the way in comfort and safety at their own pace. Our proposed trail may begin south of Tallahassee, perhaps near the Munson Slough and Ames Sink with trail description boards that discuss the challenges two communities currently face together in search of mutually bene cial solutions. The trail then snakes south to Sullivan Sink, just north of and then through the Leon Sinks Geological Park, home to Little Dismal and Big Dismal Sinks. The trail then heads south past Chips Hole (discussing the Indian lore of these sites) to Emerald Sink, across the Crawfordville Highway to Clearcut Sink and down the long chain of shallow sinkholes ending in the Promise Siphon. There are many trails already in place set up by the Forestry Service and Wakulla Springs State Park. Southward the trail will go through Whiskey Still, Turner, and Indian Springs (discussing the exploration of these caves) to reach the mighty Wakulla Springs. Then southward it travels to Cherokee Sink, then Guy Revell and the phreatic crack, and south to Harveys Hole, Swirl Swamp and Hatchet (discussing the early settlers culture). The trail will then pass over and under U.S. Highway 98, to Rat, Dog and Punchbowl sinks, ultimately reaching the sea at the many vents of Spring Creek (discussing the shing communities). We walk on water in Wakulla County! This is an ambitious vision I am pleased to see local folks nally embracing. Perhaps our multifaceted naturalist community can come together and help each other out where fractioned individually, we faltered. Quo vadis, Wakulla?

& www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 16, 2014 Page 13By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The News Although she spent her career in the arts, Sherrie Stokes began painting just six years ago. Of a humble nature, she is slender with straight silver hair and light blue eyes. On a cool November morning she wraps a navy sweater around her shoulders to keep off the chill. Stokes is originally from Henderson, Texas. At the age of 12, her family moved to Miami, where they would visit family on shing trips. It was culture shock for me, she says. I went from a small town in east Texas to Miami, Florida. She eventually found North Florida and it reminded her of her beloved east Texas childhood and she decided to study art history at Florida State University. Stokes spent her career curating at museums. Employed by the Tallahassee Museum (formerly known as the Tallahassee Junior Museum) for many years, she organized shows and was involved in grant writing. Retired now, Stokes lives in a large brick home on Jack Crum Road, with her six dogs and her family. She is helping raise and take care of her young two grandsons, 11 and 7. They are all boy and a lot of energy, she says. But I love them so much. Shes dabbled in different kinds of artwork through the years, but she was inspired when she began seeing other artists painting on old windows and glass. I kept seeing paintings on windows like this, but everything was a lot more country, says Stokes. So I decided to give it a try, in my own way. Stokes began working on a process that would work for what she wanted to achieve with the windows. She eventually developed the tedious layering technique she uses today. It took a lot of trial and error, but it comes down to using polyurethane between coats, and applying a lot of layers, she offers. Her paintings begin with sketching. She uses butcher paper to draw out an image full size, then transfers it to the window pane, using marker or oil stick. Whats nice about this is that if I draw something out and like it, I can use it over again, she says. Hummingbirds and sea turtles are two of her most popular subjects. But as well, she has paintings of owers, dogs and sh. She also creates commissioned paintings of pets and just about anything youd like her to paint. Recently she painted a gorilla and a large lizard for a couple who are decorating a new home. They were so happy with the gorilla, her clients told her, because I used browns and greens, in his face, and they told me later that those were the primary colors of their new house. The windows she uses come from various sources, but they are all old and rustic. Sometimes I nd them, sometimes I buy them, and sometimes people give them to me, she says. Once she cleans off the old windows, she starts to lay down the rst of many layers of acrylic paint. It is a time consuming process, and once in a while Stokes suffers from some arthritis pain that makes it hard to work. Some days Im inspired, other days Im just old and lazy, Stokes laughs. She works on her artwork in every spare moment, using different workspaces throughout her house. It takes a lot of layering, so she works on multiple pieces at one time. An animal lover, Stokes also lives with a pack of small dogs ve chihuahuas and one yorkie mix. Im very empathetic when it comes to animals, maybe even overly empathetic, she admits. Even though Stokes is not selling her work anywhere on a regular basis, you can see her work, or commission a painting the old fashioned way, by calling her. The feedback I get mostly is that my artwork makes people smile, says Stokes. And I really like that. Thats why I continue to do it.

If you are an artist, or know an artist, who is interested in being featured, please contact Jenny Odom at firstname.lastname@example.org.Mighty proud to write this one to relate to all you readers out there how three sets of Red Clay Footprints made it all the way from Tallahassee to Pasadena, Calif., and back. Why did we go way out there with all the expenses involved when we could have stayed home and simply turned on our television sets, you might ask. The simple answer is what you have here are three of the most loyal Seminole football fans in the state of Florida. Two of us, me and Van Page, have been attending football games since Doak Campbell stadium was built and we were small enough to crawl under the fence to gain entry, or purchase a ticket for $5 and sit wherever we pleased. The third fellow, Mickey Brady, came down from Georgia in about 1958, and has hardly missed a game since then. Yessir, were 71 years young, good friends and classmates from the Leon High School class of 1960. Youre right about it being expensive to go out there and we knew itd put a real strain on our pocket books to take that trip along with the vast majority of fans. We got to guring on how we were going to make the long trip and came up with the perfect plan. We would drive nonstop over there and back, stopping only to refuel with gasoline and coffee, check out the restrooms, get snacks and occasional bits of food, and basically just keep trucking. If you are interested in the scenery, dont go this way because half of the trip is in pitch darkness. The only thing we were interested in was getting to our destination as soon as possible. We were positive the Seminoles would come away with a win and we wanted to witness it rsthand. None of us had any desire to drive our personal vehicles and put all those miles on it, so we rented a Ford Explorer under the unlimited mileage plan. There was no requirement to tell the rental clerk where we were going, and we figured if, when we returned it, they wanted to know how we put so many miles on it, wed just say we rode around a lot and leave it at that. We then put together a plan as to how we would split up the driving chores. We first thought of the way the military would do it, since were all veterans and are familiar with military things. Maybe wed each drive four hours and therefore stand watches of four hours on and eight hours off. We discarded that with what seemed a better idea, just every man take his turn lling the tank with gas and driving until it needed refilling. The range of that Explorer on a tank of gas was roughly 400 miles. So after a fellow drove his 400 miles he would be able to rest for 800 miles. I should say right here that there was very little rest in that vehicle. I dont remember getting any rest at all, but must admit to short periods of time I could not account for when I must have just lost consciousness. Because of fatigue, one of us always sat next to the driver acting as something like a co-pilot in case the driver became too tired to drive. The coffee and snacks at our 400 mile stops helped keep us fairly alert. This method worked very well as we averaged 34 to 36 hours from Tallahassee to my sons apartment in Huntington Beach, Calif., where we collapsed in our sleeping bags on the oor because he only has one bed. Rugged, but better than staying on a soft bed in a fancy hotel and not being able to sleep from wondering if your credit card would max out when you left. I promise you when youre as tired as we were, we never even felt that oor under us. The game was on Monday, Jan. 6, and we left Tallahassee about 7:30 p.m., Friday the 3rd, and reached our destination, Huntington Beach, on Sunday morning the 5th, at 3:30 a.m. Our return trip was much the same as our trip over except we didnt push it quite so hard and even stopped a couple of times to have a hearty breakfast at a nice restaurant. We all agreed that the entire endeavor was a complete success. Our Seminoles winning the national championship made that ride back a happy one, and we agreed we would do it all over again. The costs, divided three ways and free lodging at my sons apartment, were not bad at all. People we met in California were amazed at what we had done, especially at our age, but honestly, it was actually enjoyable, an adventure we will never forget. Lastly, my conscience will hurt me if I dont tell you, if anyone ever asks how wide Texas is, you can tell them that on Interstate 10, from Beaumont to El Paso, its 881 miles. And dont forget, you have to cross it twice.

Email your community events to email@example.com Email your community events to firstname.lastname@example.org We are very happy to announce that beginning next week we will begin offering afterschool programs at the Community Center on Shadeville Hwy on the corner of Shadeville and Trice Lane. With the help of a grant from Ounce of Prevention, the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth is partnering with many community organizations such as NAMI Wakulla, the Health Department, WCPL, and many others to make a One Stop center to help assist the citizens of Wakulla County with education, health, recreation opportunities for the entire family. This will be a springboard in making for Wakulla County a state of the art, heavily used community center. WCPL will begin on Thursday, Jan. 23, with an afterschool program for K-2nd graders from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. in the afternoon. The following Thursday, Jan. 30, will be a program for 3rd-5th at the same time. Then, on Thursday, Feb. 6, there will be a program for middleschoolers from 4 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. The two programs for the elementary school aged children will be versions of our summer programs for kids in that age range. The middle school program will be some sort of a book club where literature for the young adult crowd will be discussed in what we hope will be a fun and informative way. These programs are in addition to, not taking the place of, programs that we already offer in house at WCPL. We also hope to have expanded Summer Program events at the Community Center as well. These three programs are just a starting point for all that we wish to do at the Wakulla One Stop Community Center. We hope to be able to meet more often with expanded programs in the near future. To do that we need your help. Please bring you children by and see all the community center has to offer. Transportation assistance plans are in the works and are hoped to be implemented soon, but until then please stop by and allow WCPL, Wakulla One-Stop, and all the partners in this project build a Community Center worthy of the great citizens of Wakulla County.By SCOTT JOYNER Library Director Library News...
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 16, 2014 Page 15WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)University trifecta, but what are odds for gambling deal? By DARA KAMTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Jan. 10 Three Florida universities made big news this week, two of them for presidential searches and the third for a championship game that hardly needs mentioning, at least for anyone who hasnt been living under a rock in Tallahassee. State lawmakers cut the rst committee week of the new year short so they could head out west to engage in a little fundraising and a lot of football at Monday nights BCS matchup between Florida State and Auburn at the Rose Bowl. Straggling into committee meetings Wednesday morning, garnet-and-gold fans cheered the Seminoles national championship win, turning some Gators green with envy while cashing in on the cachet of another crystal football under FSUs belt. Later in the week, Florida A&M University set off a Rattler Nation furor with the selection of a new president, the rst woman and rst non-FAMU alum in modern times to head the Tallahassee school. And an institution farther south is the center of chatter about a potential political domino effect after Chief Financial Of cer Jeff Atwater made the nal cut to head up Florida Atlantic University. Odds are on Atwater for getting the job, but its a longer shot for a gambling deal involving a controversial permit involving the Gulfstream race track and casino conglomerate Genting. ONE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH HEATS UP Former Senate President Atwater, a North Palm Beach banker who boasts on his resume of being a fifth-generation Floridian, surprised staffers (and some supporters) when he announced over the weekend that he was in the running to head up FAU. The Palm Beach County school has been searching for a president since Mary Jane Saunders announced she was stepping down this spring in the wake of a series of controversies. Atwaters announcement raised eyebrows in part because it was widely expected that he would run for governor in 2018. But its the scramble for his replacement thats the focus for now. If Atwater gets the job, Gov. Rick Scott could appoint a replacement and would likely choose a Republican heavy-hitter who would run for election in November in the hopes of avoiding a GOP primary. Two of the states most powerful elected of cials are considered to be high on the list of possible replacements. House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, and Senate President Don Gaetz, RNiceville, both signaled this week they could be interested in the job, mostly by not saying they werent and thereby fueling speculation that they are. State Sen. Tom Lee, R-Brandon, could also be a candidate to replace Atwater on the Cabinet. Lee, whos been rumored to be on Scotts short list for lieutenant governor, ran for chief nancial of- cer in 2006 but lost to Democrat Alex Sink. And House budget chief Seth McKeel, who was already planning to run for CFO in 2018, con rmed that hes interested as well. If that vacancy happens, I have expressed interest in it... I think we need to wait and see if there is a vacancy, McKeel, R-Lakeland, said. Pat Neal, a developer and former legislator who was also already making plans to run in 2018, said hell run whether he gets appointed or not. Democrat William Rankin is currently the only candidate who has led to run against Atwater. But the eld could become more crowded for the retired Army vet and former director of asset management for the Ohio State Treasury. Atwater isnt the only politician with his eye on the post. State Sen. Jeremy Ring, D-Margate, didnt make the cut, but former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux joined Atwater on a list of 10 nalists. FAU trustees are supposed to make a decision by Jan. 17. ANOTHER UNIVERSITY SEARCH ENDS Florida A&M University trustees named Elmira Mangum, currently Cornell Universitys vice president for budget and planning, as the universitys 11th president. Mangum is the rst woman to serve permanently in the post since the historically black university was founded in 1887. Mangum will also be the rst FAMU president in 60 years who didnt graduate from the university. She beat out the other nalist for the job, John Price, a former founding president at the University of North Texas at Dallas. Mangum said her goal is to strengthen the academic programs that we have, strengthen our faculty and provide the services that our students need to ful ll the promise that we made to them when they entered. The board of trustees voted 10-2 on Thursday to accept a search committees recommendation of Mangum. But the decision came after an at-times testy public hearing where Rattlers alums, students and staff showed support for making Interim President Larry Robinson the permanent prez. Robinson has led FAMU through a series of struggles since former president James Ammons resigned in the summer of 2012. Ammons left following the hazing-related death of Marching 100 drum major Robert Champion after a football game in November 2011. Champions death led to arrest of 15 band members, the suspension of the renowned band and the ouster of the long-time music director. After Champions death and a series of questionable audits, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools placed FAMU on probation in December 2012. Robinson is credited with turning around FAMUs nancial and accreditation woes during his 18 months at the helm. The university has resolved nancial irregularities and instituted a campus-wide anti-hazing initiative. And last month, FAMU was taken off probation, a critical move that allows the university to accept federal financial aid. Also, the famed Marching 100 returned to the football eld in August with a new director, new roster and a new set of rules. At Thursdays meeting, board Chairman Solomon Badger praised Robinson and noted that the board had asked the interim not to apply for president in order to attract a wide pool of candidates, and he agreed. But FAMU Alumni Association President Tommy Mitchell said the alumni had asked the trustees seven months ago to retain Robinson, and accused the board of contempt and arrogance for taking so long to respond. Robinson hasnt ruled out going to work for another historically black college or university. LONG ODDS FOR GAMBLING DEAL? Gambling operator Resorts World Omni, Gulfstream Park and the horse industry have struck a deal aimed at getting slots rolling in downtown Miami. The proposal, being pitched to lawmakers as they consider the shape of the states gambling footprint during the upcoming session, is a dramatically scaled-back version of a multi-billion dollar casino resort proposal pitched to and rejected by the Legislature two years ago. The plan hinges on a controversial permit held by a non-pro t linked to the tracks owners. Gulfstream and its allies say the permit is based in Miami-Dade, but state regulators say it is based in Broward County. Under the agreement, Resorts World, a division of Malaysiabased Genting Group, would operate slot machines and a poker room at a hotel on the bayfront property purchased by Genting in 2011 for $236 million. The horse races would continue to run miles away at Gulfstream. Backers of the plan, which has the blessing of breeders and thoroughbred horse owners and trainers, say it would be a shotin-the-arm for the states horse industry, suffering from fierce competition to the north in places like New York, where Genting has helped the industry thrive. But critics of the proposal say it would be a major shift in the states gambling landscape and would essentially decouple horse and dog racing from slot machine operations. Sen. Gwen Margolis, D-Miami, complained that slots at the Genting property, located near museums and performing arts centers in an already congested area, would inject the wrong avor into an area of the city where the goal is to attract more high-brow culture lovers. When we gave the ability to have slot machines to the parimutuels, it was because they complained they were hurting. Now everybody wants to have a different kind of deal. And the result of it is opening casinos all over the place by moving slot machines to some other area. Thats something that will get out of control. You cant allow that to happen, Margolis, D-Miami, said. And, if approved, the deal would shrink the amount of gambling money the Seminole Indians are required to pay to the state by at least $40 million a year. Resorts World lobbyist Brian Ballard said his client will work with the state to make sure no revenues are lost if the plan is approved. And Ballard said the state would be better off expanding its gambling revenue sources. I would argue that having more than one large payer in South Florida is probably good for the people of Florida. It lowers risk. I wouldnt want to have one client as a law rm or lobbying rm because if the market changes for that client, you could have a real bad day, he said. STORY OF THE WEEK: Chief Financial Of cer Jeff Atwater becomes a nalist for Florida Atlantic University president. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Every time we attempted a smoking thing, like we did in the restaurants, the rst complaints we get are from our military folks, who say, I fought and died, and got shot in World War II, and I cant have a cigarette at the VFW So be prepared to hear from your veterans. Sen. Nancy Detert, RVenice, on a bill that could snuff out smoking on playgrounds. WHITES WINESIn 2014, drink something old and something newBy DAVID WHITEJanuary is the perfect time to reflect on the previous year and make resolutions for the new one. For those of us who take wine seriously, its smart to include wine in our New Years resolutions. This year, I plan to drink something old and something new. In other words, Ill dig deep into a classic wine region and also explore a part of the world that doesnt get much attention. Whether youre a veteran oenophile or a budding wine enthusiast, following this plan will surely heighten your appreciation of wine. Consider my consumption habits. For my palate, Americas most exciting Pinot Noir comes from the extreme Sonoma Coast, a series of remote hillside vineyards in northern Sonoma County just miles from the Paci c Ocean. My favorite examples, which come from producers like Peay, Hirsch, and Littorai, combine all the elements I look for in Pinot rich, ripe aromas of cherries along with fresh herbs and earth, together with lively acidity. So regardless of the season or the meal, these tend to be my go-to wines. Such complacency is easy to understand; were creatures of habit. But its silly. The world of wine is in nite. And when it comes to Pinot Noir, Burgundy wrote the book. So this year, I hope to nally get my head around this legendary French wine region. I want to learn about its history, memorize the vineyards and producers my friends obsess over, and taste as much as I can. Discovering a classic wine region should be on every oenophiles list of New Years resolutions. If youre fond of Washington State Merlot, try some classic, Right Bank Bordeaux. If you enjoy Riesling, stock your cellar with wines from Germanys Mosel River Valley. And dont just drink the classics, learn about them. Its the classics that inspire New World vintners. Next year, I also plan on embracing obscurity. Last summer, for example, I fell in love with Muscadet, a white wine produced in Frances Loire Valley from a grape called Melon de Bourgogne. Typically, the wines are marked by subtle yet precise aromas of apples, limes, and seawater. Thanks to extended contact with the dead yeast cells left over after fermentation, Muscadet is also known for exhibiting a creamy mouthfeel. These wines are perfect with shell sh and light seafood dishes. Plus, like most obscure-but-delicious wines, Muscadet is generally affordable. This past summer, I fell for northeast Italys electric white wines, trying as many offerings as I could nd from Alto Adige, a neighbor to Austria and Switzerland, and FriuliVenezia Giulia, which borders Slovenia to the east and Austria to the north. Alto Adige is best known for Pinot Grigio, but dozens of varieties flourish there. Gewurztraminer, MullerThurgau, Sylvaner, and Kerner are exceptionally aromatic and display enough sweetness and acidity to complement cream sauces and even spicy foods. Friuli-Venezia Giulia, commonly shortened to Friuli, is home to a host of unfamiliar grapes like Ribolla Gialla and Friuliano. Producers in the region are also known for producing rich, complex blends that include these grapes alongside more traditional varieties like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling. This year, I hope to learn more about the wines of Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, and other spots in Central and Eastern Europe. More and more of these wines are making their way to the United States, and plenty are fun, food friendly, and affordable. Adventurous drinking should make everyones list of New Years resolutions. Tasting different wines is the best way to learn, and surprising your palate is the best way to keep things fun. So regardless of which resolutions you make and which resolutions you keep just make sure wine is a part of your life in 2014.David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com, which was named Best Overall Wine Blog at the 2013 Wine Blog Awards.

While the days are getting marginally longer, the appearance of frost in the morning is not a surprise to anyone. Last weeks painful subfreezing temperatures will lead to noticeably higher power bills in the coming weeks. The short days and low thermometer reading have taken a toll on plants too. Sweet gums, cherries, some oaks and many other hardwoods, weeds and shrubs have lost their leaves. Their period of seasonal dormancy is here as they await springs reawakening. For a minority of plants, the frigid temperatures and short days are the ideal environment to sprout, bloom and grow next years seed. Wild radish is one such plant which is currently in bloom. Raphanus raphanistrum, the scientific name for wild radish, is a native of northern Europe and northern Asia. This annual ourishes in marginal soils and has spread to most of the world, especially areas with disturbed soil. The term Raphanus has a Greek origin meaning quickly appearing. This accurately describes the rapid emergence and growth, when the soil temperature falls below 65 degrees and enough moisture is present. Bloom color of wild radishes can vary. Yellow and white are the most commonly encountered colors, but occasionally lavender is on display. When first emerging the wild radishs leaves are kidney shaped and covered with hairs, top, bottom and on the stems. The plant may reach three feet in height, but will rapidly decline with the return of warm weather. Crimson clover is another cold season annual commonly seen in wintertime Wakulla County. The delicate appearing leaves remains viable under a coat of sparkling frost and never wilt. Three clover leaves per stem is the most common structure on this dense growing legume. Persistent searching will reveal the infrequent four leaf clover for the lucky individual. This European native germinates in late autumn, but has a slow steady growth pattern which lets it escape notice until about this time of year. The plants are currently clumps of green leaves among brown grass. The distinctly red blooms appear in spring and are an early season nectar source for European honeybees. The scienti c name, Trifolium incarnatum, references the blood red bloom color which produces a striking vista when mass plantings occur. Crimson clover is commonly seeded on roadsides to stabilize the soil and add organic matter. This annual legume will reseed itself when conditions are right. The Roundleaf Bluet or Innocence is a tiny, native wildflower currently in bloom. The white owers are about the size of a dime and appear in clusters of ten or more blooms. The height of this plant is less than two inches and barely appears above the decaying leaf litter. The plant requires partial sun, but uses the protection offered by tree canopy along with its natural hardiness to produce blossoms during periods of cold and frost. Like plants, many of the insect pollinators are inactive during the cold weather. One which is active is the Syrphid y, sometimes called a hover y. They work with the available cool season pollen and nectar sources to assure the seed production for next winters blooming annuals. Their wasp-like appearance serves as a mean of repelling potential predators.
