If the bill passes the House, it would clear the way for a referendum of Panacea voters in November on whether they want to create their own city. The bill, HB 823, was led on Wednesday, Feb. 5, by state Rep. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello, whose district includes Wakulla. The issue of incorporation was brought up for public hearing at the legislative delegation, and there were comments for and against Panacea becoming a town. Those on the pro side contend that, as a city, Panacea would be able to receive grants and other revenues to enable the city to make local improvements. Those against say it would add to the tax burden of an already impoverished community. Voters would ultimately decide in a referendum in November. The 40-page bill notes that there are approximately 850 people living in the Panacea area. If approved, Panacea would be the largest city in Wakulla. St. Marks has about 250 residents, while Sopchoppy has about 400 residents. The bill speci es that the city would have a council-manager form of government, with ve council members and a ceremonial mayor selected from the members for a two-year term. The bill also designates a city manager and city attorney and city clerk. Perhaps most importantly, the bill states that Panacea would be eligible for state revenue sharing and gas taxes. There is also a stipulation that Panacea residents would still have to pay the Wakulla County Fire Rescue Municipal Service Taxing Unit. The county MSTU pays for re service and equipment. Panacea could create its own city re department by holding a referendum. By JENNY ODOMreporter@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County One-Stop Community Center is now open and beginning to operate programs. Preparations are being made for a grand opening, but the staff is currently working on getting all the programs in place. The community center was able to begin operating in December 2013 under a $250,000 grant through the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, received from the Ounce of Prevention Fund. The community center doors opened on Jan. 14. This community center is an array of services that are culturally relevent to enhance the lives of Wakulla County citizens, said Gail Campbell, executive director of the youth coalition. Ounce of Prevention is a private, nonpro t corporation dedicated to shaping prevention policy and investing in innovative prevention programs that provide measurable bene ts to children, families and communities. Ounce is funding the coalition to carry out the model proposal to manage the community center, says Bruce Ashley, president of the youth coalition. This is outcome-based funding, he said. Weve got to show that we are serving families and youth in order to be funded again. The coalition will need to reapply for funding in April. Ashley says they are hoping for up to $300,000 to continue the model pilot program. This is just the beginning of something, he says. Right now were just getting the numbers gathered, changed, and modi ed for Ounce, said Ray Gray, the recently hired director of the community center. Turn to Page 2ASpecial to The NewsAt approximately 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8 two Tallahassee men were killed in a helicopter crash at the Wakulla County Airport in Panacea. A Tallahassee woman was injured and transported to a Tallahassee hospital with unknown injuries by medical helicopter. The pilot, Terry Bryan Ooten, 49, of Tallahassee and Curtis Robert Clifford, 53,of Tallahassee were killed at the scene. Sheri Noelle Devore, 45, of Tallahassee survived the crash. The three individuals were on their way back to Tallahassee after eating at a local restaurant. The helicopter clipped a tree limb and crashed, landing on its top. The tree limb took down a power line which hampered emergency worker efforts until the line could be turned off. The helicopter landed in a wooded and marshy area near the airport. The helicopter was owned by Tallahassee Helicopter and was used for video footage for news stories for WTXL Channel 27. The helicopter was not being used by WTXL at the time the accident took place. None of the people on the helicopter were employees of the television station. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash. By JENNY ODOMreporter@thewakullanews.netRay Gray has been hired to run the Wakulla County One Stop Community Center. Hes been on the job just over three weeks. My job as the director is to let people know about what we have to offer, Gray said. Gray received his undergraduate degree from The University of Southern Mississippi in business and marketing. He also holds a graduate degree from Texas Tech University in health and recreation. Gray served as parks and recreation director for Wakulla county for 17 years. He was terminated in 2011.

Last year negotiations with the YMCA to run the facility stalled and the county commission was forced to seek another option to facilitate programs at the site, located at Shadeville Road and Trice Lane. Approved contracts to offer services through the center have already been made with five agencies the Wakulla County Public Library, DISC Village, NAMI Wakulla, the Sheriffs Athletic League and the Department of Health. Gray and the staff are working on securing more contracts with agencies to provide services and activities at the center. This is a place to have fun, be t, learn to eat right, said Campbell about the programs they hope to bring to the center. This is all about creating a healthy, thriving community, and giving them a place to go, to gather. There are a lot of balls to juggle, and Gray is acting as the lead juggler. Check back in about a week, and well have some big news, said Gray, shuffling papers on his desk. The important fact is that this is a community center that is going to be a true representation of the community, Gray said about the programming. The community center is on 22 acres, and has three large buildings, of which one is a newly constructed gymnasium. The WCSO has some offices in one of the main buildings, but they will be moving out and into their new facility in March. There are plans to utilize the facility for healthy practices, such as yoga classes, teen dances, recreation, sports and the arts. The gymnasium is almost nished. It will give us a great place to provide programs, said Gray, who is already being contacted about using the facility by a host of organizations. We even are talking about creating a community garden and a disc golf course on the property grounds, he said. Other plans for the community center involve youth programs, after school and summer programs, bullying intervention and education. Bullying in our schools is a huge problem, Gray said. Its gotten much worse, and it seems to be stress related. We have kids out there raising kids, living with their parents, he said. There is a huge need for preventative measures, to help these young parents before problems arise. Gayle Myers, a counselor and coordinator through DISC Village, recently moved into her new of ce just off the main lobby. Through DISC village she has the ability to offer a long list of services through the community center, including anger management, mental health screening, parenting, anger management and more. The Tallahassee based non-pro t, DISC Village, works with families to promote the well-being of juveniles, adults and families who are affected by substance abuse and/ or other behavioral health disorders. The center is open to everyone in Wakulla County, Gray adds. We dont want to portray this center as just for people who need help. To learn more about the community center go to www.wakullacommunitycenter.com.Community center is now openFrom Front PageThere are three other positions at the community center. Pam Pilkinton Volunteer Coordinator Pilkinton has lived in Wakulla County for 15 years, and has been a stay-at-home mom for the last 13. She has two teenagers. Pilkinton has been a peer councilor and volunteer for the Wakulla Pregnancy Center, and was part of the original steering committee. She has a BA in computer science and math from Troy University. My passion is for helping people, in general, says Pilkinton.

Hayes received her Masters in social work from FAMU. My passion is working with youth and young adults, she adds. I like to help people ful ll their Godgiven purpose. Sara Daw Community Specialist Hayes grew up in Wakulla County and began working with parks and recreation while in high school. After high school she worked for the Dept. of Agriculture for 5 years. She is currently attending TCC and working on a degree in hospitality and business. My passion is for serving youth in the community, says Daw.

Jenny OdomShields, Cantner return to St. Marks city commissionBy JIM TURNER THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 6 As thousands of coastal residents worry about higher flood-insurance rates, an effort to attract more private insurers to offer flood coverage in Florida may go back to the start of the Senate review process. After concerns were expressed by several senators on Thursday about technical changes in the Senate proposal (SB 542), sponsor Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, said he will meet with Senate Banking and Insurance Chairman David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, to discuss whether the revisions need another review from Simmons committee. This is an attempt to open this market, theres obviously going to be to be a lot of questions were going to make sure all of our senators understand this policy going forward, Brandes said after the hearing. The upside for us is that (the legislative) session doesnt start for another two weeks. The Banking and Insurance Committee on Jan. 8 supported the proposal, which is the states reaction to increased rates under the National Flood Insurance Program. On Thursday, Feb. 6, the Senate General Government Appropriations Subcommittee agreed not to oppose the changes to Brandes measure. But the nature of the changes drew subcommittee members Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, and Nancy Detert, RVenice, to say that such dramatic alternations should be made in a committee where staff has a better understanding of the proposed changes. Im a little concerned about basically a strikeeverything amendment being made in a committee not expert on the subject matter, Latvala said. Im not sure this is the way we want to do business. Brandes proposal is intended to provide exibility to homeowners now covered through the National Flood Insurance Program and to open the Florida market to companies offering ood coverage. Among the changes added or redefined on Thursday: Homeowners would be able to negotiate rates without private carriers needing the state Of ce of Insurance Regulations consent; commercial coverage would be excluded; and ood coverage could be limited to the principal building or the amount of a property owners outstanding mortgage. Also, rules would be eased for surplus-line carriers, which offer higher risk alternative types of coverage to people who cant get standard coverage and whose claims are not guaranteed by the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association if a company goes bankrupt. The changes to Brandes proposal came two days after the U.S. House rejected the latest attempt to delay most of the rate hikes in the National Flood Insurance Program for four years. Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement Wednesday saying he was disappointed with the Republican-dominated U.S. House and saying that President Obama needs to act immediately to undo these outrageous ood insurance hikes he forced on Floridians. Real-estate and business leaders have claimed there could be a potentially cataclysmic hit to the states real-estate market as rates go up because of changes approved in the federal 2012 BiggertWaters Flood Insurance Reform Act. Florida accounts for about 2 million policies in the federal program, with state staff estimating that about 268,500 policies receive subsidized rates. Some properties, primarily in the Tampa-St. Petersburg and Southeast Florida markets, have been projected to face the biggest hikes as the rates in the federal program are made actuarially sound. While there have been examples of some homeowners seeing rates go from $4,000 to $40,000, Detert questioned if the Senate proposal will actually bring affordable rates for those homeowners. If you open this to more agents to sell ood, it may reduce the cost from $40,000 to $38,000, Detert said, but that original buyer was still used to $4,000. Latvala said BiggertWaters is an example of how laws and regulations get approved without the proper reviews, as he emphasized a desire for further analysis of the state proposal. Biggert-Waters is an example of how a major piece of legislation, that is impacting hundreds of thousands of lives, was passed that dramatically impacts our state, Latvala said. All but one member of our congressional delegation voted for it, because they didnt know what was in there. Former U.S. Rep. Connie Mack cast the only vote in the House from Florida against the 2012 bill, which eventually made it through the Senate as part of a larger negotiated measure that included student-loan interest rates and BP oil spill money.Expansion of private flood insurance may get extra reviewRight-of-way sold for realignment of 319-98By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIn an interview this week, County Commissioner Jerry Moore disputed comments made at last weeks county commission meeting about an intersection realignment on which he owns property. The state Department of Transportation is planning to realign the intersection of U.S. Highways 319 and 98 in Medart so that it is front of the bus drive entrance at Wakulla High School. Moore has owned 10 acres of property at the site of the proposed realignment since 2005, well before he was elected to of ce four years ago. According to DOT spokesman Ian Satter, the agency closed with Moore on Jan. 23, buying 2.61 acres for rightof-way for $885,520 which was the appraised value of the land. At the commission meeting, Citizen Dana Peck questioned the commission putting the realignment of the intersection on its priority list, and said that Moore had offered the property to the state for free in the past. Moore did not respond to Peck at the meeting and, asked why, said he wasnt going to answer to those people, an apparent reference to citizens politically aligned with Commissioner Howard Kessler. But Moore said later that he did send a letter to DOT with an offer to donate the right-of-way with a condition that the agency move ahead with the project within a year. The year passed and nothing happened. Satter at DOT could not immediately confirm the agency had such a letter, and noted the issue of the realignment has been going on for more than 10 years. Commissioner Randy Merritt said at the meeting that the project is a state DOT matter, and that county commissioners have no say in it. Peck and Kessler both raised the issue of whether the realignment created a safety problem for students at the high school. Mama, hang on to your teenager because they are going to get killed today, Peck said at the meeting. Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce indicated he was reluctant to step into a political controversy saying it is not a school issue but said he was continuing the policy of his predecessor David Miller in supporting the realignment because it would be safer. Pearce said with a T-intersection at the school, and a stoplight with a crosswalk at the intersection, students will not have to leave school property to cross the road. School resource of cers can be at the road to ensure safety. A stoplight at that intersection makes sense, Pearce said. Currently, students jaywalk across the road. Currently, the intersection is a Y south of the high school. If a stop light were put there, students would have to leave school property to get to a crosswalk to cross the road. Moore said that a proposal to realign 319 more with Jack Crum Road, further south than the current Y, would have required the purchase of six properties for rightsof-way. Moore and Kessler faced each other in a bitter political battle four years ago for the district 4 seat on the county commission, which Moore won. Two years later, Kessler ran for and won the district 2 seat. The district 4 seat on the county commission is up for election this year, and Moore has led to open a campaign account.

Page 4A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 13, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comEvery week we obviously collect a lot of coins here at The News. People feed quarters into the newspaper boxes, buy their weekly paper, and then our route drivers Jimmie Smith and Michael Davis go around and put new papers in the racks and pick up the money. Except a lot of what we get isnt quarters. You would be surprised or maybe you wouldnt at some of the things people slide into the coin slot in an effort to get a paper. Eric Stanton puts together our weekly deposit, and he brings me the different coins and things that are rejected by the bank. We obviously have a lot of world travelers in Wakulla, because I have amassed a small fortune in foreign coins. And by small fortune, I mean enough if the exchange rate was favorable to buy lunch. Thats besides the occasional slug that gets dropped in a machine. I have lots of Canadian coins, all of which seem to be about the same size as the American equivalents, but most featuring Queen Elizabeth on one side and buffaloes and beavers on the other. Most of the others are from the Bahamas, the Caymans and Jamaica. Theres a 10 pence coin from jolly old England, and a 5 peseta coin from Spain with King Juan Carlos on it thats no longer good since they stopped using it in 2002. Some of the more interesting coins that have been collected: A 20 colones coin from Costa Rica, which is about the size of an American half-dollar. A 2 pfennig coin from Germany thats the size and shape of an American penny. Also have a couple of slot machine tokens that appear to have come from Biloxi casinos. The most interesting coin, though, is a religious medallion with an angel on one side that came in last week. I had to Google that one, and found that its supposed to bring wealth, love and happiness to the person who has it. They were selling the angel medallions on eBay for $2 or $3 each, so that may be the one coin we came out good on. William Snowden is editor of The Wakulla News.

My husband and I much enjoyed this piece, but finding it published in The Wakulla News emphasizes why we are both readers of The News. The local interest articles from Les Harrisons Natural Wakulla, columns from the Rudloes, articles on the local senior center, on local water activities whether shing, diving, or Coast Guard Auxiliary are truly appreciated. Thank you and those writing these articles, Judy and Henry Depew firstname.lastname@example.org Editor, The News: A word about the wetlands petition drive in Wakulla County Floridas Constitution gives its registered voters the right to put issues on the ballot that politicians either dont think of or dont want to touch. Those Constitution writers thought it was important that Floridas people have the ultimate power as long as petitioners could get enough signatures to show the will of the people. Thats whats happening right here in Wakulla County. Registered voters are saying they want to vote this November on how our countys wetlands should be protected. The only difference in our Wakulla County petition drive and the State of Floridas is that our county government requires 30 percent of the registered voters to sign a petition, and the state of Florida requires only eight percent. But thats OK. When the people speak in Wakulla County, they speak with a strong voice. By the way, this week the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance will reach that 30-percent goal of all registered voters signing the wetlands petition. It seems the people are speaking with a loud and clear voice. Its the Florida way; its the American way. Dana Peck Panacea Editor, The News: Id like to say thank you to a number of people. First, a big THANKS to the Wakulla county commissioners for repealing the wetlands ordinance. Im glad that as of now our citizens taxes will not have to be spent defending, and losing, lawsuits. With the wetlands ordinance that was in place it was not a matter of IF it would be challenged in court, only a matter of WHEN! ($$$) Second, Id like to thank James Grey for his letter to the editor last week. A lot of people have been writing in with some unrealistic statements about what will happen to our wetlands and bay without the Wakulla wetlands ordinance in place. Im really not sure of their motivation but some of their scenarios seem a little ridiculous to me. More importantly, as Mr. Grey points out, the statement used to try to get you to sign their petition is a flat out lie. The Wakulla county commissioners are NOT trying to take your vote away. They couldnt if they wanted to! Mr. Grey explains it in very simple language that you should read before you sign anything. There is a small group of fanatics who are trying to force something down your throat that you dont need. Our county is protected... period! I hope the commissioners and the citizens will continue to apply common sense to issues like this. Its our money and it should not be jeopardized by any group with an unknown agenda. F.J.Young Crawfordville Editor, The News: An open letter to David Edwards, Wakulla County Administrator. Dear Mr. Edwards: As a resident of Apalachee Bay I am requesting that you table Item 2 under Section VII of the Feb. 10 planning commission meeting for the following reasons: Apalachee Bay is a small, harmonious community and our goal is to work with the Planning and Zoning Commission but to do this we need to be a well informed. Please do not ram this down our throats. It would be best for everyone concerned for the many years a boat ramp will last that the citizens of Shell Point are in agreement with the county commission and visa versa. Even though you wont be commissioners 20-plus years from now, we will still have to live with the decisions made on this issue. Give us and yourself a public workshop on the issue. The Letter of Intent, signed by you, was not sent out until Friday, Feb. 7. As a result we, the community around Shell Point, have not had an opportunity to discuss the information contained in the letter. In addition, we also have been advised that certain items referred to in the letter were included as the result of a PUD dating back to 2005. Since county of ces have been closed for the weekend we have not had access to that document and therefore do not have direct knowledge of what it contains. We are asking for your consideration and cooperation in delaying this issue until the Board of County Commissioners can schedule a public workshop so that the whole Shell Point Community, including Oyster Bay, Live Oak Island and Spring Creek have had adequate time to fully understand the merits and consequences of this whole proposal. Respectfully, Mark Wallheiser Shell Point Editors Note: The planning commission continued the issue until its meeting on March 10. Editor, The News: The Wakulla County Historical Society is hosting a special fundraising event, A Land Remembered by Patrick Smith (1927-2014) on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Crawfordville United Methodist Church. Rick Smith, son of the author, will be presenting this educational program about his father, the story behind the story, excerpts from the story, videos and music. This will be a multimedia production. When I read the book it brought back memories of the stories told to me by my parents and grandparents about what it was like when they were children. I think this will be a fascinating opportunity for older people to remember and for youngsters to hear and come to love stories of Florida. Tickets for the event are available for a minimum donation of $10 at the WCHS Museum & Archives, 24 High Drive in Crawfordville, open Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or by calling Carolyn Harvey at (850) 524-5334 any day between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Space is limited and there is only one event. I hope to see you on Feb. 27.

Bishop Alice Williams is pastor. The church is located at 150 Brown Donaldson Road.Church BriefsBy JAMES L. SNYDER Quite a few, if not most, put a whole lot of credence into a kiss. Much can be argued in favor of this philosophy, but not from me. I grew up in a generation that never kissed on the rst date. Sad to say, that idea went out with Noah and his ark and you can kiss that idea goodbye. Nothing wrong with a kiss, if it is with the right person. It seems we are living in a culture where all anybody thinks about is kiss, kiss, kiss. So much so, that the average kiss is just that, average. Whatever happened to the romance factor behind the kiss? I am one not given to hugging people let alone kissing them. I have friends in a certain church who believe in what they call, A Holy Kiss. They take it from the Bible where it says that we are to greet one another with a holy kiss. As soon as I nd out and understand what a holy kiss is, I might start doing it. But not until then and dont count on it. I am one of those people who likes a warm friendly handshake. Such a handshake conveys all I really want to say at the moment. It is not that I am unfriendly and it is not that I do not have warm feelings about people. I just like to preserve my space. A kiss could mean a lot of things to different people. I see an advertisement on TV all the time that says, Every kiss begins with Kay. What does that really mean? Does everybody have to go to the Kays jewelry store in order to kiss someone? Is that where kissing really begins? If so, please count me out. A kiss should be something special and not thrown around like some dirty old rag. It should mean something to the people involved. Some believe romance begins with a kiss. If that is so, I am out of the game. So many people kiss and tell that I think there should be some kind of law enacted to prohibit this sort of activity. A kiss should be a private activity not to be shared with the whole world. When sharing such an activity with the whole world, it ceases to be romance and enters into the area of performance. I still remember my rst kiss. I was in Bible school studying for the ministry where I met this girl. We had been dating two months before I realized we were dating. On many things, especially in the romantic arena, I am rather slow. At the end of our rst date, she surprised me by hugging me. I had never been hugged before. I did not know what to do with my arms. I did not know if I should stand there or if I should say something. At the time nothing really came to mind so I just stood there saying nothing. The frightening thing about this rst hug was I could not sleep all night long. I had no idea what it meant and I did not know what I was supposed to do. What would I say to this young lady when I met her the next day? How could I look her in the eyes? I am not sure if I have ever gotten over that rst hug after all these years. The thing I did not realize at the time was, every kiss begins with a hug. Forget Kay, whoever she is. Then, the inevitable happened. We had concluded our date, and I took her over to the doorway of the dormitory where she lived. All of a sudden she rose up on her tippy toes and kissed me right on the lips. Then she turned around and went away into the dorm, leaving me standing on the porch not knowing what happened or what to do next. It was February and just a week away from Valentines Day. I had my Valentines Day present and my dilemma was, what do I now give her in return? What in the world could ever top a kiss? Being a nave young gentleman, I did not possess the resources to process this sort of problem. I had never bought anybody a Valentines Day present in my life. What did they really look like? After some soulsearching and wallet rumbling, I bought her a heart-shaped box of candy. When I presented it to her, she was thrilled and kissed me again. What do I have to do now? Do I buy her another box of candy? The next few hours were rather foggy to me and even the next couple of days. By the end of Valentines Day, I discovered I was engaged to be married and it all started with a hug. The apostle Paul put it best when he wrote, And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (1 Corinthians 13:13). A kiss is an expression of love. It is not so much the kiss as what comes after that kiss; a relationship that gets better and better every year.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Studies show that, after one year of bereavement, 13 percent of survivors suffer from panic disorders and 39 percent suffer from anxiety. Of those suffering anxiety disorders, 55 percent also suffer from depression. Once a survivor enters into a state of depression, an open door invites other debilitating stressors to take root. When we think of grief, we associate depression as the culprit that interferes with our recovery. We should not, however, discredit the ravages of loneliness on ones ability to return to a healthy state of mind and physical health. Loneliness severely attacks the functionality of our immune system. When loneliness becomes chronic, it moves into isolation. Isolation negatively affects humans psychologically and physiologically. The remedy is to retrain the survivors social abilities and skills, and the second is to reintroduce them into social activities. Small gatherings of close friends might be the best method of social reintroduction. If you nd that someone you care for has become isolated after suffering the loss of a loved one, earnestly seek him or her out. Is it possible to die from a broken heart? I believe it might be.Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer. It is my lifes work to comfort the bereaved and help them live on.

Linda Schaub, in the Arizona Daily Star, on July 24, 2011, posted her oldest child had her rst panic attack when she started middle school. The mother thought this was a character aw, that her daughter was becoming a moody teenager. She later learned she could not have been more wrong. She took the NAMI Family to Family 12 week course and learned about mental illness in all age groups. She realized she had to learn to balance her life when her youngest child assaulted her boyfriend and later attempted suicide. NAMI helped. As a parent one has to put the ego aside, admit something is wrong and seek help and education. That is the crucial rst step. Without doing so living with mental illness can easily become a living nightmare. These brain disorders are real, not just some character aw. They have been hidden for too long. Early onset mental disorders that are left untreated are associated with school failure, teenage childbearing, unstable employment, early marriage and violence. We must no longer delay acknowledging some type problem exists. Learn how at NAMI Basics. Studies by the National Institute on Mental Health reveal half of all lifetime cases begin by age 14 and become the chronic diseases of young patients. Those same studies reveal untreated mental disorders can lead to a more severe, more difcult to treat illness. NAMI Wakulla is offering help to families and caregivers of those whose loved ones exhibited inappropriate behavior at an early age. NAMI Basics will be taught twice in the next six months. All of NAMI Wakullas signature programs are free of charge. Enroll now for NAMI Basics at the Wakulla County Community One Stop Center, WCCOSC, corner of Shadeville Highway and Trice Lane.

State Director Travis Beverly and Regional Director Catherine Simmons began the morning at Riversprings Middle School, traveled to Wakulla High School around 10:30 a.m., and then toured Wakulla Middle School that afternoon. While the tour is a part of the AVID certi cation process, Wednesdays walk through was simply an observation day. They were simply observing and noting how good teaching strategies are implemented at WHS, noted Mr. Crouch. The classrooms visited were Mrs. Coronel (Spanish 2), Mrs. Gray (AVID 2), Ms. Lovestrand (Algebra 2), and Will Pafford (AVID 1). The visitors also meet with the AVID Senior Panel in the AVID Tutorial room. The panel consisted of Sheldon Johnson, Kyler Woodward, Tiana Haskett, and Christen Brown. A recap meeting was held with Mrs. Beth ODonnell, Assistant Superintendent, Mr. Mike Crouch, Principal of WHS, Mrs. Sunny Chancy, Assistant Principal of Academics, and Mrs. Nancy Floyd Richardson, AVID Scholars Assistant Site Coordinator, to complete the tour. Special to the NewsDue to school districts needing to comply with the states Class Size Amendment, there will be changes in the availability of out of school zone seats available in Wakulla for the 2014-2015 school year. There will be a limited number of seats reserved at each grade level for each school. Schools must serve the students who live in their school zones first before they can take students from other schools within the Wakulla School District. These in-district Student Reassignment Applications are for students living in Wakulla who apply to attend another elementary or middle school in Wakulla. The deadline to turn in a Student Reassignment Application is Monday, March 31 at 4:00 p.m., even if the student was granted on out of zone placement the previous year. The application is annual. Students who were granted an out of zone request for this current school year must apply for 2014-2015 and will be grandfathered in for that same school only. If an application is submitted by the deadline each year, these students will be grandfathered in until they no longer attend that school. Siblings of students who are grandfathered in will also need to have an application submitted by the deadline. Siblings will be allowed to attend an out of zone school if the grandfathered sibling is still attending that school in 2014-2015. Check to see what middle school your child is zoned for by your address. If you are unsure, contact the Transportation Department at 926-7550. The School Reassignment (out of zone) Application has been revised, so please do not use old copies. Go to the Wakulla County School District website at www.wakullaschooldistrict.org for application form, and for more information.

Franks, at 6-foot4 and 210 lbs., has grown up in Wakulla county and has played a lot of different sports, but football is where he will focus for the next four years. UCF coach and recruiter Tyson Summers came to the high school on Thursday, Dec 12. That night he came to the house to talk to us, and showed how interested UCF was in Jordan, explained Ginger Franks, Jordans mother. They liked his versatility on both sides plus they felt he has considerable special teams value. Im begging Coach OLeary (head coach at UCF) to let me steal him to come play linebacker for me, Summers, UCF linebackers coach, said during the visit. An official visit to Orlando was scheduled for mid-January. When I visited University of Central Florida, it was the coaches that really impressed me. It felt like a family, said Franks about his decision. He received an offer on Sunday, January 19, from Coach OLeary and committed right then, said Ginger. Jordan also received offers from the Air Force Academy, Florida Atlantic University, Florida A&M University, Southern Mississippi, Jacksonville State, Florida Tech and Tennessee State, and others. I like the fact that UCF is away from home, but not too far away, said Franks, with a huge smile. Among his many honors, Franks was named the 2013 Wakulla High School MVP, 2013 All-Panhandle offensive player of the year and 2013 All-Panhandle first team offense. His senior year, Franks had 62 catches for 1,306 yards and 13 touchdowns. As well, Franks currently holds a 4.1 GPA. Scott Klees, head football coach at WHS spoke during the signing ceremony about how much he enjoyed coaching Franks and about the rst time he met him. I dont know why, he just looked like a Bubba to me, said Klees. So, that became my nickname for him. It just stuck. Jordan is a great kid, said Joey Jacobs, football coach for Riversprings Middle School. other schools are gonna be sorry they didnt sign him. Friends and coaches, from middle school to recreational leagues, lined up as his mother took photographs with the new UCF Knight. At the signing table also sat Feleipe, Jordans younger brother, who plays quarterback for WHS and is also turning eyes all over the country. He already has offers from major colleges, including interest from FSU. My brother has worked so hard on and off the field and has been a great role model. He deserves this, Feleipe wrote on Twitter when his brother signed with UCF. By CONNOR HARRISONwakullasports.comThe Wakulla War Eagles had a great football season this past year, and to top it off star wide receiver Jordan Franks signed a letter of intent to play for the University of Central Florida. Franks new head coach will be George OLeary, who defeated Baylor at the end of the 2013 season in the Fiesta Bowl. When asked about going to UCF over other schools, his response was, It was where I felt most at home and most comfortable with the football. He also added that he went there for the internships that he could get for his major in computer science. I will miss the family I have been basically playing with since I was 7, Franks said about what hell miss the most from his high school career. I am excited to start fresh and work my way to a starting position, is what he said about his future career as a collegiate athlete. When Keith Gavin got injured earlier in the season, Franks had to carry a little more weight on his shoulders, but also had the load to share with other receivers such as Corion Knight, Ethan Davis, Markel Rawls, and Cody Stephens. Franks brother and starting quarterback Feleipe Franks was also part of Jordan Franks success. The majority of Feleipe Franks passing yards came from his attempts to his brother, who ended up with well over 1,000 yards receiving and 13 touchdown catches on the year. After being asked about who he thought helped him succeed as an athlete, My brother (Feleipe) helped by staying after practice or even at the house to throw the football and get my routes on time, Jordan Franks said, adding that his parents helped him mentally by raising me the right way and showing me the path to live a positive life. If Jordan Franks could play against any team in the country, hed play against the Oklahoma Sooners. The reason: his cousin is a defensive back for the Sooners.

The curly-haired 18-year-old, who runs the 800 meters, sat at a long table with her parents Janie and Alan Harris, in front of the adoring crowd. Her third grade teacher from Medart Elementary School, Sherry Robinson, even showed up for the celebration. Mrs. Robinson was Madisons third grade teacher and theyve been great friends ever since, said Janie Harris, Madisons mother. Keeping it in the family, Janie Harris was a middle and long-distance runner for FSU in the mid-s. She held onto a top 10 performance of all time for 25 years in three events. Being a runner myself, I knew the right questions to ask, said Janie about the recruiting process. We were extremely impressed with Coach Karen Harvey (track and cross country coach). She runs a world-class, elite program. She is one of the best coaches in the country. The best, in my opinion, she added. Heavily recruited by other top-notch colleges like Clemson and Texas Christian University, to name a few, Madison almost didnt make the recruiting trip to Tallahassee. Track coach Paul Hoover talked about recruiting Madison, who was playing soccer at the time, to the WHS track team her freshman year. He also talked about her decision to attend FSU. She could have gone someplace where she would already be the star on the track, he said. But it takes courage to choose a school that will be a challenge a place where shell have to work hard. Madi, Im proud of all youve accomplished. Im proud of who you are. And Im proud of the decision youve made, Hoover said. Madison, who is interested in pre-med, says shes overwhelmed by the offer and all the support she has received since. Im so excited, she said as people kept tapping her on the shoulder for a hug. Open to whatever comes her way, Harris is ready for new challenges and expresses her willingness to train hard. Right now Ill be running the 800 meters and, of course, cross country, she said, but you never know well see.

It reminded us hunters that deer season is still going strong in parts of Florida. General gun season remains open on private lands in zones B and D through Feb. 23. And then if you dont mind hunting with a primitive weapon, Zone Ds late muzzleloading gun season runs a week longer until March 2. This unique late season, which occurs only in Zone D, was established to give hunters the chance to hunt the rut, which occurs from mid-January through February in the Panhandle. A $5 muzzleloading gun permit is required to hunt during this season. On private land, hunters have the choice of using a muzzleloader, bow or crossbow. On wildlife management areas, this postseason is referred to as the archery/muzzleloading gun season. Hunters can use bows or muzzleloaders but not crossbows, unless they possess a disabled crossbow permit. Hunters who choose to hunt with a bow must have the $5 archery permit, and those using a muzzleloader need the muzzleloading gun permit. The most common kinds of game to hunt during this season are deer and wild hogs. Only bucks may be taken (even if you use a bow), and one antler must be at least 5 inches in length. If youre hunting deer, make sure you have the $5 deer permit. On private land, the daily bag limit is two. Bag limits and antler size for deer on WMAs can differ, so please consult the area brochure before you hunt. Wild hogs arent considered game animals on private lands. Because of this, they can be taken year-round by most weapons with no bag or size limits. On most WMAs, there also are no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons except spring turkey. On selected WMAs, specific bag and size limits do apply, so check the areas brochure to make sure. No dogs may be used in the pursuit of deer during this season. However, leashed dogs can be used to track a wounded deer if necessary. And its important to note that no turkeys may be taken during this season. Bows and crossbows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and handheld releases on bows are permitted. Broadheads used in taking deer must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch. During this season, you may use only muzzleloaders that take black powder or a nonnitro-cellulose substitute and are fired by wheel lock, flintlock or percussion cap ignition (including 209 primers). You may not use muzzleloaders that require smokeless powder or those with selfcontained cartridge ammunition capabilities. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders that re single bullets must be at least .40-caliber, and those ring two or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. Youre allowed to take deer and hogs over feeding stations on private land, but its illegal to do that on WMAs. Twelve of the WMAs in Zone D have a late archery/muzzleloading gun season. If you plan to hunt any of em, you must have the $26 management area permit as well. Ten of those areas dont require a quota permit during this period: Apalachicola, Apalachicola River, Beaverdam Creek, Blackwater, Choctawhatchee River, Econ na Creek, Escambia River, Point Washington, Tates Hell and Yellow River WMAs. The two that do require a quota permit are Chipola River and Perdido River WMAs. You can get all of the licenses and permits youll need at any tax collectors of ce or retail outlet that sells hunting and fishing supplies, by calling 888-HUNTFLORIDA or by going online at License.MyFWC.com. So if youre not quite ready to give up on deer hunting, have no fear, cause Februarys here! Grab your favorite primitive weapon and head over to Zone D, where the rut is still on. As hunters, we all know that its nearly impossible to score every time were in the woods. But the thrill of the hunt lies in the appreciation of the woods, watching the wildlife and never knowing when that trophy animal might decide to show itself. Tony Young looks forward each year to hunting Zone Ds late muzzleloading season, because the deer are still in rut on a couple of properties he hunts. Largemouth bass Florida bucket-mouths are showing up in abundance this winter, with an outstanding year projected by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists. The rst year of TrophyCatch ended, and the awards were all given out, but the challenge is on for year two. TrophyCatch rewards anglers for catching, documenting and releasing largemouth bass heavier than 8 pounds in Florida. Bob Williams of Alloway, N.J., earned the TrophyCatch Championship ring for the rst season. It was presented at Bass Pro Shops in Orlando last month by Keith Alan, from the American Outdoors Fund, and Tom Champeau, director of the FWCs Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. Williams winning catch was a 13-pound, 14-ounce largemouth from Rodman Reservoir. He previously earned a free ($500 value) berglass replica of his catch and other awards totaling approximately $1,000. A $10,000 check was handed to Peter Perez at a special ceremony at West Lake Tohopekaliga by Experience Kissimmee representatives Debby Guertin and Terry Segraves, along with Champeau. Perez caught the largest TrophyCatch-veri ed bass from Osceola County to win the prize. He caught his winning 12-pound, 3-ounce bass last March in a neighborhood pond on a Rat-L-Trap. The winner of the 2013 Phoenix 619 bass boat, powered by Mercury, was surprised angler Frank Ay. His prize was presented to him following a club tournament on Lake Okeechobee by professional bass angler Bobby Lane, Champeau and KP Clements, the TrophyCatch coordinator. Ay won the $40,000 grand prize via a random drawing from among 4,000 anglers who registered for TrophyCatch the first season. See the TrophyCatch Florida YouTube channel (YouTube.com/ TrophyCatchFlorida) for coverage of these awards. For the second year, which began Oct. 1, documenting a TrophyCatch has gotten simpler. Start with a free registration at TrophyCatchFlorida.com, and you will be entered to win a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury and equipped with a PowerPole. This year the only required photo is one of the entire bass (head to tail) on a scale, with the weight visible. Always attempt to get that shot, but if it isnt perfect, supplement it with a close-up of the scale, a photo of the entire sh on a bumpboard or tape measure, and maybe even a shot of the basss girth. This will help biologists determine if the fish is eligible for recognition. You can also submit a bragging photo and perhaps a release photo on the website. Every veri ed entry gives you 10 more chances for the Phoenix boat drawing in October. The second year is off to a great start, with 63 Lunker entries (8-9.9 pounds) and 26 Trophy Club (10-12.9 pounds) recorded in less than the rst four months, and more than twice as many entries in December 2013 compared with December 2012.

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 13, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comThe National Coast Guard Auxiliary is divided up into 15 regions throughout the United States. Each Region is divided into Districts; which are divided into Divisions. The Flotillas make up the Divisions. Flotilla 12 is a part of the 8th District, Coastal Region, which runs from New Mexico through the western panhandle or Florida. Division 1 runs from Pensacola to the Econna River. Flotilla 12 Apalachee Bay Commander Duane Treadon attended the District meeting this past weekend and sent in the following summary and pictures. Members from across 8th District, Coast Region gathered in Mobile, Ala., this past weekend for FEBTRAIN (February Training) and Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon was one of them. FEBTRAIN is a time for Auxiliary members from New Mexico to Apalachee Bay to meet and discuss new ideas, concerns, and learn from each other. It is also the time for the District Meeting where District staff present on their program areas and offer support to Divisions and local Flotillas. Our Division Vice Commander TJ Del Bello was one presenter as he is also the District Staff Of cer for Operations. Many workshops were offered with some being very relevant to activities for our Flotilla. Duane gathered information from one workshop on Disaster and Contingency Planning. This was of particular importance since our Flotilla lacks a written contingency plan and recently appointed a committee to work on the development of one. Members Raye Crews, Norma Hill and Fran Keating along Duane will serve on this committee. The information presented and sample contingency plan will go far in helping our Flotilla develop a plan that supports the local community and the Coast Guards needs in times of natural or human disasters. Another very informative session covered the importance of boaters to understand and activate the DSC (Digital Selective Calling) function of their VHF marine radios. This system is free and comes standard on all new VHF marine radios. The system, when connected to a chart plotter (new models are all-in-one), will broadcast not only a distress signal but will also broadcast the vessels location a critical bit of information that helps us and the Coast Guard find people in times of emergencies. Throughout the weekend, information was discussed that will help us become better prepared to assist boaters in becoming safer before a problem arises and help us be better prepared to assist when emergencies arise! 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.

We get a lot of folks pass through the Center who are proud to call themselves certi ed divers. Many seek further training, which obliges me to ask if they know anything about Nitrox. Usually they do these days, but very little, so I encourage them to refresh their training by taking a Nitrox class (enriched air). Why, they ask? Why indeed but the Divers Valentine, I reply. Several decades ago people who ventured underwater breathing air occasionally suffered upon their return undeservedly. They were experienced enough not to hold their breath upon ascent, yet they suffered what appeared to be an air embolism, or rupture of the lungs. I found myself in the vanguard of the Nitrox revolution in diving, training folks in the UK at Fort Bovisand one day when the resident hyperbaric chamber doctor came into my class and offered to host us for an update of his research. Eager to learn more about undeserved decompression sickness propelled us to the basement of the fort for a demonstration. The doctor asked for a volunteer and quickly got one. He then injected a solution of CO2 gas immersed in saline and turned on the echocardiogram and monitor. The image was of the volunteers heart pulsing along until a white ush of bubbles appeared. At that time he asked the volunteer to do a Valsalva maneuver, like he was clearing his ears going to depth in the water. While the heart continued to beat, we then witnessed a tiny stream of bubbles jump from one side of the heart to the other through a small hole. What had we witnessed? Embarrassed, the doctor turned the monitor off as what we saw was an active Patent Foramen Ovale or PFO, something rather personal for the volunteer to now process emotionally. The volunteer saw we all witnessed the event so he told the doctor to continue the revelation, explain what we witnessed! It seems, he said then, that about 25 percent of the population have these holes in the heart, left over from birth when we all had them in the womb. Upon birth, the doctor would hold the newly born child by the feet and slap its behind to get it to yell, which required a full lung and back pressure that would close the Foramen Ovale and reroute the blood to the lungs. Over the next month, that window should seal up we were told. Davis, much later, found 41 percent of the adult population maintains a PFO, an opening between the two Atrial chambers of the heart. Under the right conditions of back pressure in the vascular system, blood jumps through this hole from the venous (low pressure side) to the arterial (high pressure side) and moves unconditioned by the lungs to the brain and back to the body. We knew that divers diving to within 95 percent of their no-stop bottom times would generate non-symptomatic bubble since 1973. These same bubbles could now become symptomatic if they reached the brain! How could we protect ourselves from the Divers PFO? Nitrox became the Divers Valentine we could give our Divers PFO. Like chocolate to a romantic with a broken heart, the reduced nitrogen in Nitrox reduced the number of silent bubbles and thus the decompression stress within recreational time frames. Divers with a PFO could continue to dive recreationally with greater assurance of a safe return without injury. Meanwhile, doctors have developed a way to patch the PFO for those breathing the thinner Trimix gas used in deep diving. A probe sent up the Femoral Vein from the leg enters the heart with an umbrella, can pass through the PFO, be pulled back and with an opposing umbrella, synched off and permitted to be overgrown with heart tissue for a complete closure. What a Divers Valentine gift indeed.

The success or failure of the effort will determine if food is available for the family, ultimately a circumstance of life or death. The Wakulla County native Great Blue Heron falls into this second category. The seemingly carefree bird is in a constant search for aquatic nutrition and calories. This heron is usually sited in or near a body of water, anything from ditches to bays. The lanky, year around resident is an exceptionally ef cient sherman with a wide variety of skills and techniques for making the catch. Depending on the conditions they are capable of standing in one place and waiting for an oblivious sh to swim within snagging range. The statue-still bird strikes suddenly with the speed and accuracy of an expert marksman. They are regularly seen strolling casually in shallow water with their head slowly swiveling to and fro in search of their next target. There will be the occasional stop for probing and pecking at a potential meal, and then the walk is resumed. Their gawky persona disappears when they take ight. Great Blue Herons are capable of hovering agilely over a surface as they identify a sh, and then pluck it from the water. If the prey attempts an escape into the deep, the slender heron will dive head rst into the water and usually return with the sh. They can even be seen swimming or oating on the surface of the water much like ducks or cormorants. The Great Blue Herons nest in a colony, sometime with up to 500 families. Occasionally, other native herons will be included in the colony when there is room. The nesting trees are located near water sources which hold a plentiful supply of food. These aggressive feeders are not so particular and will swallow the easily procured frog, insect or crab when within range, but sh is the top menu choice. Their sturdy nests are constructed of sticks and are used multiple years. The males arrive at the nesting site rst and settle the area before the females arrive and mates are selected. Premium nesting sites have a combination of necessary features which protect the occupants. They must be far enough off the ground to discourage raccoons and bears, but not exposed to birds of prey. The females lay three to six pale blue eggs at two day intervals and both parents share the incubation duties. The month long incubations end as the chicks arrive, sometimes over a period of a week. Like their parents, the chicks are aggressive and voracious consumers of sh. The adult herons food consumption increases 400 percent while the chicks reside in the nest. After about two months of living in the nest, the chicks take flight and hone their fishing skills. Gradually, over a two month period their shing expertise improves so they may survive in the wild.

Green Scene Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 13, 2014I want you to consider doing two things this month for your betterment and the betterment of the environment. The rst involves a behavior change for every shopping excursion. The second is a 10 minute job that could save you and the environment money, time and paper. Every time I go to any grocery, hardware, or drug store, I cringe when I witness how many plastic bags are still in use. I fully realize that some of them will be used again for trash or carrying things back and forth to school and work, but I also know how many will be picked up by our trash collectors and are ultimately taken to the land ll. Do you remember when I reported on the activities in this column of the Board of County Commissions Task Force on which I served called Keeping Wakulla County Clean? Do you know that one of the committees suggestions was that plastic bags be banned from use in Wakulla County? We did not get that initiative passed but be aware, that many countries in the world and several states in the United States have done so. Until that happens, I would like you to consider two options. One is that you make an effort to return your extra bags to collection sites in many Wakulla County stores. When you return them for recycling they are shredded and then pelletized. According to the Society for the Plastics Industry, they can then be made into new products, such as industrial trash-can liners, ower pots, drain pipes and, of course, new plastics bags. Remember this cant happen unless you return them to the collection points. I love the way the retailers have gotten into the reuse scene. The re-usable grocery bags that are now available are so classy I dont know why anyone would want to settle for less by using paper or plastic from the store. Get yourself some of those bags and make it a practice to take them with you on every shopping trip. Some people report that they cant remember to bring them from home or car. Return them immediately to your vehicle after utilizing them. I had to park my shopping buggy at the service counter and go to my car to retrieve mine twice before I vowed that that would not happen again and it hasnt. Picking up my re-usable bags is as familiar to me now that it is as natural as picking up my purse. Think of the petroleum used in the production of plastic that would be saved if everyone in Wakulla County would make one of the two above mentioned behavior changes. I challenge you to make one of these changes during the month of February. Your habit will stick and we will be miles ahead in our walk to a better environment. The second resolution I would like you to consider is that you take 10 minutes, one sheet of paper, a pen, an envelope and a stamp to reduce, the rst action for waste management. Write to request that your name and address be removed from mailing lists by sending a note to Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 9008, Farmingdale NY 11735. You can also do this on line at the site of Direct Marketing Associations website. At this site you can also remove your name from 1,500 catalogs. You will have an even greater success by contacting the catalog companies directly. Their contact information is in the catalog itself and often includes a toll free number. We will all pro t from your making these resolutions and following through with them.Shelley Swenson is an Extension Agent II Family and Consumer Sciences/EFNEP/FNP with UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Service. She can be reached at 926-3931.Two resolutions for February By SHELLEY SWENSONWakulla Extension ServiceGREEN LIVING By LES HARRISON and SHELLEY SWENSON of the Extension Of ceThe winter of 2013-14 will long be remembered for being a cold one. The January 2014 storm sent temperatures plummeting and brought Wakulla County a rare ice storm where sleet actually accumulated on plants and trees, structures and vehicles. It might seem strange, but there was successful vegetable gardening ongoing during this unusually harsh weather. Brussels sprouts came through the recent cold and ice with barely a notice. The Brussels sprout is in the same plant family as collards, kale and broccoli. This hardy vegetable is a cultivar in the Gemmifera group of cabbages, Brassica oleracea, which are grown for their edible buds. The mature Brussels sprout look like tiny cabbages and are about the size of a half-dollar coin.The edible buds grow on the plants main stalk and are composed of layers of tightly wrapped leaves. Plants will grow up to three feet tall with large, pale green leaves which protect the tender buds from exposure to sun and other threats. The crop matures and is ready for harvest in about 90 days. As the name implies, Brussels sprouts historically have been a popular and dependable crop in Belgium for hundreds of years. The countrys location in the northern latitudes of western Europe near the North Sea has required this food staple to be tolerant of cold and icy weather. Likely spread by Roman traders a millennium ago, this delicacy is widely cultivated in much of northern Europe where menu options were few during winter in the days before high speed trade. Each locale had its own special recipe with seasoning. French colonial settlers brought the Brussels sprouts to the new world when they settled Louisiana in the early 18th century. They also took it to the Canadian province of Quebec, where it proved a dependable cool season crop. Today most domestic Brussels sprout production occurs in California, with pockets of production in Washington and New York. A common site in the frozen food section of super markets, about 15 percent of the total crop is sold as fresh, unprocessed produce. When selecting fresh Brussels sprouts from the garden or the market, choose rm, compact, bright green heads. They may be refrigerated in a plastic bag to up to one week for peak quality. This vegetable is an ideal food nutritionally since it is low in fat with no saturated fat. It is also very low in sodium, cholesterol free, low calorie and a good source of dietary ber, vitamin C and folate. In modern America the important nutritional value has been compromised, in some opinions, by the taste. Plant breeders and seed companies have worked on developing a Brussels sprout cultivar which satis es the contemporary palate. For tasty up-to-date and innovative recipes and preparation ideas, visit the Family and Consumer Sciences section of the UF/ IFAS Wakulla Extension website, www.wakulla.ifas.u .edu Brussels sprouts are currently growing in the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension demonstration garden on Cedar Avenue. Visitors are welcome.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, February 13, 2014 Page 3BWEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Starting guns for CLC, the Legislature By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Feb. 7 For anyone thinking that the appointment of new Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera was the rst step in recasting Gov. Rick Scotts election-year image, Lopez-Canteras rst week on the job undermined the notion. Scott said he would consider a measure that would reduce higher-education tuition for some undocumented immigrants, which could be seen as a sizable concession from someone who rose to prominence by advocating an Arizona-style immigration enforcement bill. But for the most part, Lopez-Cantera seemed to instead become more like Scott than vice versa, with the governors new No. 2 already proving adept at rattling off the economic talking points and campaign-style slogans that have been the hallmarks of Scotts rst term. Of course, the new lieutenant governor wasnt the only one settling into Tallahassee for a while. Lawmakers have begun the legislative session in all but name, with the rst committee week in February featuring discussion of Scotts budget proposal and a pair of gun bills pushed by the National Ri e Association. TEAM PLAYER The actual swearing-in of Lopez-Cantera was a quiet, private ceremony. The former House majority leader, who most recently served as Miami-Dade County property appraiser, was joined at the ceremony by his family and Scott. At around 10:30 a.m. Monday, Lopez-Cantera became the 19th lieutenant governor in Florida history. Within a few days, he and the Scott administration were facing questions on issues of importance to the Hispanic community that political observers viewed as one of the reasons LopezCantera got the job. It was largely smiles during Lopez-Canteras rst outing in his official role, a press conference with Scott outside the governors mansion about an hour after taking the oath of of ce. The governors been doing a great job, said Lopez-Cantera, 40. I just look forward to being a part of the team and helping in any way that I can. For his part, Scott was already laying out a job for his new No. 2, who has far more experience in dealing with the Legislature and the Tallahassee establishment than Scott, who rode the tea-party wave of 2010 to of ce. Hes got the right background, Scott said. Hes got a great legislative background being majority leader, majority whip, building great relationships. Hes been in business. Hes got local government experience. Hes going to be a major part of making sure we get our $500 million tax break back to Florida families. But simply naming a Latino to a high-ranking post might not be enough to gain a toehold among the growing number of Hispanic voters, who have shown an increased willingness to cast ballots for Democrats. Scott and Lopez-Cantera met Wednesday with Hispanic lawmakers and faced questions about whether the governor would allow at least some undocumented high school students in Florida schools to be eligible for in-state tuition. Scott said he was open to the idea, but he clearly wasnt ready to endorse it. Ill certainly consider it. I think tuitions too high, Scott said during a meeting with the Hispanic Legislative Caucus Scott quickly shifted away from the topic and instead focused on lowering tuition. He also bashed Charlie Crist, the leading Democratic challenger in Scotts re-election bid, for approving a 15 percent tuition differential that allows universities to raise tuition by up to 15 percent per year and adjust for in ation. Rep. Jose Javier Rodriguez, D-Miami, pressed Scott but the governor remained on message. Ill consider it but I want all tuition to stop growing, Scott said. BUT WHAT ABOUT TOASTER STRUDELS? Meanwhile, the National Ri e Association, one of the most effective lobbying groups in Tallahassee, was back at work doing what it does best: getting the Legislature to increase the protections gunowners and gun-lovers enjoy in Florida. Even if it comes to making sure they can sculpt their breakfast into whatever shape they choose. A new bill (PCB KTS 14-02) proposed by House Judiciary Chairman Dennis Baxley, ROcala, is already becoming known as the the Pop-Tart bill for just that reason. The title is a reference to a widely reported news story about a Maryland 7-year-old who was suspended from school last year for chewing his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun. The bill would tweak school zero-tolerance policies to prevent children from being disciplined for simulating a gun while playing or wearing clothes that depict rearms. Obviously we dont want firearms brought to school in a backpack, Baxley said. But we were de nitely having some over-reactions. Despite the usual re ghts that gun bills spark at the Capitol, there seemed to be a cease re over Baxleys bill. Rep. Carl Zimmermann, a Palm Harbor Democrat and high-school journalism teacher, recalled a student who weeks before her graduation was found to have a pink water pistol in the back seat of her car and wasnt allowed to walk to graduation as a result. School discipline wasnt the only target for gun-rights supporters. Insurance companies could face tougher penalties if they impose higher rates, refuse to issue or cancel auto or homeowner policies due to gun ownership, under a measure backed by a House committee. Florida law already prohibits such action, but Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, said his proposal (HB 255) would provide a remedy other than with the state Ofce of Insurance Regulation by allowing a policyholder to sue if an insurer took such an action. It just gives greater access to courts, Gaetz said. Its unlawful now, but the only entity that has the ability to enforce it right now is OIR. That one wasnt quite as popular as the Pop-Tart bill. Rep. Kevin Rader, D-Delray Beach, an insurance agent, cast the lone vote on the Insurance and Banking Subcommittee against the measure. He called the measure unnecessary. If an insurance company wants to exclude assault-type weapons, it seems to me that it is good to exclude if they desire to, Rader said. Certainly I know on animal exclusions they exclude Doberman pinschers and rottweilers. BUDGET BATTLES BREW This week also marked the rst opportunity for lawmakers to start plunging into the details of Scotts proposed budget. The proposal got a largely receptive or at least quiet audience among Republicans in both the House and the Senate. But House Democrats, in particular, werent quite as mum about the nearly $74.2 billion spending plan for the scal year that begins July 1. For example, Democratic Rep. Reggie Fullwood of Jacksonville, argued that the governors historic funding for education still falls short of the level of per-student funding provided in the 2007-08 budget, the high-water mark for that gure. And Fullwood pointed to the fact that $374.7 million of Scotts proposed $542 million increase for schools would come from local property taxes. It appears in this budget, and I hope you can correct me, that were shifting a lot of the funding requirements to our local governments and their property taxes, he said. Scotts budget does set aside the largest amount of raw dollars for public education in the states history. And the governors budget director, Cynthia Kelly, said the states 56.4 percent share of the funding is one of the highest state percentages in recent years though education funding reports on the governors budget website show that the state provided almost 57.2 percent of the money in the states main funding source for schools last year. Meanwhile, a sales-tax holiday backed by Scott got the go-ahead from the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee, but still faces minor challenges before it can clear the Legislature. While Scott has recommended a 15-day period in June for a list of hurricanerelated items to be sales-tax free, the Senate version (SB 362) stands at 12 days. STORY OF THE WEEK: Carlos Lopez-Cantera is sworn in as the rst Hispanic lieutenant governor in state history. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: This isnt the rst session for these subjects. This is the umpteenth. I dont know if its the umpteenth plus one that gets something done or the umpteenth itself that gets something done.--Senate Gaming Committee Garrett Richter, R-Naples, on the prospects for comprehensive gambling legislation. WHITES WINESBridging the Whole Foods gapBy DAVID WHITEAlthough modern consumers are far more concerned about the origins of their food than they once were, keenly eyeing the source of that organic spinach, their concern goes out the window when it comes to wine. These words appear in a discussion about affordability in The New California Wine, the just-released book from San Francisco Chronicle wine editor Jon Bonn. Its what he calls the Whole Foods gap. As he explains, most consumers, even if they are the type to shop at that particular upscale grocery store and obsess about the origins of their food, simply couldnt care less about where their wine comes from or how it was farmed. The numbers back this up. Consider organic food sales. Theyre soaring. In 2012, according to government data, sales of organic food increased 7.4 percent over the previous year about double the growth rate for food overall. Since 1990, the amount of U.S. farmland dedicated to organic crops and livestock has increased fourfold. Organic meat and produce often cost twice as much as their conventional counterparts. But Americans are beginning to take an interest in where their food comes from. So theyre moving away from industrialized calories and toward production that eschews pesticides and values sustainability, even if it means paying more. With wine, however, Americans still drink cheap, without giving much thought to sourcing or production. The average bottle of wine in the United States sells for just $6.22. Nine in ten bottles sold cost less than $12. Look at Whole Foods. While shopping for freerange chicken, cagefree eggs, and artisanal cheese, consumers are presented with stacks of wine from Three Wishes. Retailing for $3, its produced for Whole Foods by the Wine Group, the nations second-largest wine company. Or consider Trader Joes. Just feet from where consumers pick up local fruit sits a wall of wine from Charles Shaw. Better known as Two Buck Chuck, the wine is produced by Bronco, the nations fth-largest wine company. Wines like these bene t from economies of scale, of course. But they also rely on a host of winemaking tricks. That oaky aroma? It typically isnt from barrels, but rather from oak chips and sawdust dumped into the wine. The juiciness is often the result of acid additions. The weight and texture of inexpensive wine could be from concentrates engineered to ll gaps. Its better wine through chemistry. The grapes for these wines are generally grown in Californias vast Central Valley, where farmers rely on constant irrigation and regular use of chemicals to keep output high. With California experiencing one of its worst droughts in history, the sustainability of these methods is worth scrutiny. This isnt to say that inexpensive wines are inevitably bad. There are certainly satisfactory options available for less than $10. But spending so little almost guarantees youll be drinking industrial wine. One label Bonn recommends is Broadside, a value-priced side project from two admired up-and-coming vintners. Another is Foxglove, a value-priced offering from the brothers behind Varner and Neely, two highly acclaimed labels. He also suggests Lioco Wines. Liocos Indica, a red blend based on old-vine Carignane, is a delightful wine thats reminiscent of both Beaujolais and Ctes du Rhone. Bonn is optimistic about the future. People who are willing to pay a premium for whatever it is say tomato sauce made by a small company rather than Ragu are going to need to extend those values into wine. In time, they will..David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com. His columns are housed at Palate Press: The Online Wine Magazine. -Janet

By LINDA CARTER Special to The News Europes most exciting river cruises begin in Budapest, Hungary. After just a few hours in this magical city you will begin to understand why. The most picturesque waterfront in Europe, and centurys worth of historic architecture will awe and delight. Settled over a thousand years ago by the Celts, it has fallen to or been absorbed by ancient tribes, Christian kings, the Romans, the Turks, the Nazis, the Russians and now discovered by the American Tourist. Bisected by the Danube, this city exceeds the sum of its parts, with older Buda on one side, and more modern Pest on the other. Known as the Castle district, Buda is a medieval town with streets dating back to the Middle Ages. Now a UNESCO world heritage site, restoration continues today. With highlights Fishermans Bastion, and the Mathias Church, your daily cruise tour quickly lls in the history. Pest is modeled after the great cities of Europe. The Andrassy Utica, a wide avenue featuring ample shopping and entertainment, is perfect for strolling. The Parliament Building, situated beside the Danube, is constructed in a style reminiscent of London. The metro is the oldest in Europe. Perhaps due to decades of Communism, whole city blocks retain their charming 18th, and 19th century architecture. Local landmarks in Pest include: St Stevens Basilica, Heroes Square, and the Dohny Street Synagogue the second largest in the world, and the Central Market Hall. Famous for the Opera House, it is said that upon completion the then ruling Austrian Hapsburgs were displeased because the Budapest Opera House was more beautiful than their own. Still in use, take the tour or see a performance. Although a member of the European Union, Hungary still retains its original currency, the florin. As a result, enjoy 5-star riverview rooms at the Intercontinental Hotel for around $200 a night, or dinner for two for around $20 USD without drinks. Enjoy the bargain basement prices in this city. With a regional cuisine all it own there are many new dishes to savor. Famous for Hungarian goulash, tender stewed beef with a mix of sweet paprika, potatoes and tomatoes, a mouth-watering dish. Sample local favorites like duck cracklings, local olives, sweet, and smoky summer sausage all available at an affordable price. Warm mineral waters bubble up beneath the city. More than 100 springs feed the local baths. With many open to the public, this is a must-do. Among the most famous are the Gelert and Szechenyi Baths. Admission is $7.50 to view the baths, and $22 for a day pass. At nightfall discover the romance of the city. Bisected by the Danube, twinkling lights shimmer on the water. The historic Chain Bridge is also aglow at night. Above the city many historic buildings are up lit, and appear reflected on the water. Flanking the rivers edge, meandering walkways invite an evening stroll, as violin music drifts through the air. For delicious authentic food, affordable prices, amazing architecture, soothing Turkish baths, and enthusiastic people, there is nothing like a visit to Budapest.
