By JENNY ODOMreporter@thewakullanews.netOnce again the wetlands issue and property rights in Wakulla County took center stage at commission chambers Monday night. In a meeting that took two and a half hours the commissioners haggled over liability of the county if the wetlands ordinance passes in November. Commissioner Randy Merritt, who voted to repeal the ordinance, raised the concern that the county could be sued if the referendum passes in November. Projected on the big screen was a property outline that showed a large piece of land, with a small bit of yellow that was, under current law, highlighting the only part of that property the owner would be allowed to build. As the law stands right now, there is no variance procedure, Merritt explained. But if the repeal goes through, and then the referendum passes in November, there would be a window of about ve months without any (wetlands) buffers. He said that this window would open the county up to potential lawsuits by property owners. Merritt explained if a property is suddenly deemed unusable because of a new law the voting public would be voting to take away their own rights if the referendum passes. Ralph Thomas agreed with the concern and used the term taking of property. In legal terms, a taking refers to actions that amount to depriving an owner of the use and enjoyment of his property. In this case, the concern is that the countys wetlands ordinance could be a constructive taking in that it prevents a land owner from building on his property, or decreases the value of the land. County Attorney Heather Encinosa advised Thomas and the board to use caution in using the term taking and similiar language. Luis Serna said it was unclear to the staff that they had been directed to prepare the repeal for a public hearing. We voted to eliminate the wetlands ordinance, said Thomas, then he directed Serna to prepare and advertise for a public hearing on the repeal of the ordinance. Its clear that Commissioner Thomas wants to repeal the ordinance, but its not clear whether the board wants to proceed in light of everything thats happened since July, Serna told The News the day after the meeting. In order to proceed with the public hearing the staff would need to draft the ordinance, advertise it, create an agenda request and prepare staff recommendation for two public hearings, the planning commission, and the county commission.

He bakes fresh bread from scratch and grows a variety of vegetables that he sells at farmers markets in Tallahassee and Apalachicola. Everywhere you look at Crescent Moon Farm there are containers. Glass jugs on a wooden shelf hold dark syrup, made from sugar cane grown on the farm. Seeds, grains, polenta and dried peppers in giant canning jars are arranged along a metal rack in the small, but ef cient, kitchen. A plethora of plastic jugs are lined up outside, full of fry oil that fuels the farms tractor and cars when its converted to biodiesel. When you sell produce to restaurants, you walk in the back door, says Simmons about his source for the used grease, and I can get all the oil I need. The patient farmer works hard and has created a simple yet time-consuming process for re ning the fry oil into the biodiesel he uses to run farm equipment, tractors and his two Volkswagens. At a workshop held at the farm by Dr. Jennifer Taylor, FAMU small farms coordinator, combined with Piedmont BioFuels out of North Carolina, he met an intern, Emily Smith. Smith ended up living and working at the farm for a period of time and helped Simmons develop the biodiesel process. Simmons, 64, grew up in Tallahassee and attended Florida High (Florida State University High School.) He attended Texas A&M University for a while to avoid the draft, he says. After his stint in college, he taught at Gilchrist County Juvenile Detention Center, working with incarcerated youth. Its the only job I ever lled out an application for, says Simmons, wearing worn annel and old Levis. One summer, he bought a 58-foot sailboat at Alligator Point that he decided to sail to the Florida Keys. At the end of the trip, he decided to stay on the boat, sailing next to the Bahamas and then to the Virgin Islands. Simmons says he found ways to make a living and landed in St. John for about 27 years. He returned to Sopchoppy around 2004 to help his mother care for her husband who was ill. He purchased the cracker-style house and property from Joe Hutto, a well-known author and naturalist, and began farming. On a recent Saturday morning the industrious Simmons prepares to butcher a hog he has purchased from his friend Andy Brown. The swine awaits in a trailer while Simmons builds a fire underneath a cast iron caldron that will feed the bath to scald the hair off the animal once shes been killed. Steam rises in the cool morning air as he tries to nd a plug for the claw foot tub raised on old blocks, pumping the water into for the dunking. A huge pulley hangs from the oak tree above with hooks that will hold the hog. As he walks off towards his workshop in order to fashion a plug to hold the water, he kindly asks his helpers to fetch some fresh pine boughs for the tub, and explains why.

Green Flea Market participants are invited too! From Front Page The pine sap will stick to the hair and make it easier to scrape off, he says while arranging the knives on a table in what feels like an outdoor operating room. Butchering a hog this way is an old time thing, he says. You gotta have the stuff. He uses a .22 between the eyes. His helpers on this day are three of the four people who are currently living and working on the farm with Simmons. Its kind of a coop, he says. They live here and work on the farm, and I help support them. Madison and Dillon are from Indianapolis, and have worked on the farm for about two months. Sun ower and Rainey are from Tallahassee, and have been there for almost two years. Sun ower is a vegetarian, and not interested in partaking in the hog slaughter, so she has left the property to go camping. We like it here, says Madison. Feeling blessed, its like family. She cleans the small intestines and explains, well use these to make sausage. The entire hog will be used, even the fat will be rendered to make soap. The only animals raised for food at Crescent Moon are egg-laying chickens. The plan is to expand the coop, and raise more chickens, says Simmons, in his slow southern voice. Another morning, the four workers are preparing for a frost, covering seedlings in the long neat rows, while Simmons is baking about 40 loaves of bread to take to Apalachicola the next day. He shuf es around a shed that looks, from the outside, like any tool storage shed. Inside, is a compressed commercial kitchen. He begins with wheat berries he gets from New Leaf Market in Tallahassee. He puts those through a grinder fashioned with a chute to catch the fresh ground organic grain. Its rigged, but it works great, smiles Simmons. We grow everything that we can, he says. Id really like to start growing my own wheat. He takes a 50 lb. bag of washed organic carrots and puts them through a well-used juicer. The orange pulp shoots out of the machine like sausage, and the brightly colored juice collects in a industrial metal bowl. Champion juicers are the best, he claims loudly, as the machine whirs. Using as much as possible, he puts the carrot pulp back through the juicer a second time, garnering at least 2 more cups of juice. Then he says he will use the pulp to make crackers, an original recipe. We eat good, he says. We cook fabulous meals here. Simmons, moves slowly around the small kitchen, cleaning and prepping for bread making. He has been collecting appliances, stoves, ovens, refrigerators, sinks and more for his commercial kitchen for about six years. The mixer is on wheels so it can slide easily back underneath a table. Theres not an inch to spare in here, he says about his small, but ef cient kitchen. You can find Simmons at the Lake Ella Growers Market on Wednesday, and in Apalachicola in front of Tamaras Caf on Friday. He will be selling his unique avors of fresh bread and Crescent Moon Farm organic vegetables at the Worm Gruntin Festival on April 12 in Sopchoppy.

Join The Nature Conservancy to plant a billion trees, one tree at a time, in the ght to end climate change at plantabillion.org By JENNY ODOMreporter@thewakullanews.netWakulla County has many miles of roads, and a lot of those roads need attention. The county commission held a workshop offering input about what to do with those roads that have passed life expectancy. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming gave a presentation during the workshop and explained that there are more projects than there is money to spend. The 2013/2014 Budget includes $300,000 for paving and $100,000 for striping. This funding is provided by the one cent sales tax, but there is another $100,000 available for paving only. Wakulla Gardens, located off Spring Creek Highway just north of Martin Luther King Memorial Boulevard, was a major part of the discussion for commissioners. It would cost over 1.5 million dollars to pave all of the roads there. I understand we never have enough money to do it all, said Ralph Thomas. Those people in Wakulla Gardens need to have their roads paved. Commissioners Howard Kessler and Jerry Moore also voiced concern that Wakulla Gardens needed the countys attention. Residents who live on Cooperwood Road, which runs between Wakulla Springs Road and Woodville Highway, showed up to voice the need to pave the cut-through dirt road. Its part of the original road that came through here, said Jasper Musgray. Everything else gets paved, but this one doesnt. We went to work to get the one cent sales tax passed and we were promised that if we got the right of way it would be paved, Musgray added. Our cars are getting banged up out there. Joel Lay, another Cooperwood resident, said that its a through road, not just for the people who live on it. Panacea Waterfront Partnership member Dave Lansford came to the meeting to voice concern over the evacuation route. He said that there is a low spot on Highway 98 between Ben Withers Construction and Tower Road that oods during large storms. Another area of concern was the safety of Smith Creek Road which runs northwest out of Sopchoppy through the Apalachicola National Forrest. Commissioner Richard Harden said that there was a direct safety concern to allow this and other county roads to remain unstriped. Id hate for an accident to happen because theres no stripes in the middle, he said. County Administrator David Edwards projected that the county would have about twice as much funding next year and the year after, $800,000 per year. He also projected that in three years the county budget should allow for almost $1 million of road improvement projects. The recommendation from Edwards and Fleming was to concentrate efforts on striping as many roads as possible and put off paving and resurfacing for the next three years. Fleming said that the county could afford to either stripe about 40 miles of roads or pave one and a half miles. Commissioner Randy Merritt suggested that the commissioners allow Flemming and the public works department to make decisions regarding setting the priority for which county roads to stripe. The commissioners all agreed. From Front Page We would recommend waiting, said Serna, until the electorate votes on the referendum. What I dont want to do is advertise it and then have them decide to exercise caution, he continued. Its a lot of work for staff. In March the board adopted the comprehensive plan change. The appeals deadline is April 8. So far, no appeals have been led. In another legal matter, the board was asked to approve legal services for the Wakulla County Charter Review Commission, setting the budget at $5,400. Commissioner Howard Kessler raised concern about using the money, especially since the county is facing a tight budget year. I havent even see their plans, said Kessler. What is their schedule of meetings? County Administrator David Edwards told the board that the committee plans are to meet twice a month for the foreseeable future. Kessler also said that Encinosa would review all recommendations by the Charter Review Commission, and contended it was a waste of taxpayer dollars. Harden stopped the boards conversation to allow citizen Bob Danzey, a member of the Charter Review Commission, to speak on the issue. Kessler asked for a point of order from Harden when it became clear the speaker card had been submitted after the motion was allowed to be discussed. It was ultimately up to chairman Harden how he conducted the meeting, and Danzey was allowed to speak. Danzey disagreed with Kessler and pointed out that the Charter Review Commission needed to have its own counsel. Harden has been consistent, allowing all who ll out cards to be heard, even if the cards are lled out after the motion is opened for discussion. The motion passed 4-1, Kessler casting the lone no vote. Pennington Law Firm was approved to represent the Charter Review Commission. In other matters before the board: The Wakulla County Community Center will get a new HVAC unit from Keith Kay Heating and Air Inc. for $33,084. Commissioners voted unanimously to raise speed limits on two roads, as recommended by the Community Traffic Safety Team. The speed limit on Emmitt Whaley Road will be changed from 25 mph to 35 mph, and Wakulla Arran Road at East Ivan Road will be changed from 35 mph to 45 mph.COUNTY COMMISSIONStriping of county roads discussed at workshopBoard still wrestles with wetlandsHazardous Waste Day is setOn Saturday, March 22, Wakulla County Public Works and Keep Wakulla County Beautiful will hold an Amnesty Day for Wakulla County residential households. We cant take tires, or biological waste, said Cleve Fleming, Project manager. But we take a lot of paint and other items. Wakulla County doesnt have anywhere to dump hazardous waste, so we partner with Jefferson County to dispose of it. Last year 271 people came to drop off items they thought were hazardous, said Fleming. Fleming said the event is free, but it does cost the county to dispose of hazardous waste items. They have allotted $20,000 for disposal. The event begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. at the county public works department on Trice Lane. For a complete list of items that will be accepted, go to www.mywakulla.com and search hazardous waste, or call Public Works at 9267616.

The headline said, Pastor Jeff McFalls of Medart is dead. People I heard from complained that the headline was blunt and insensitive. One person wrote me to say the story was great, but the headline made his blood boil. After hearing the complaints, I changed the headline on the online story to Pastor Jeff McFalls dies after lengthy illness. In the past several years, Ive used that same sort of headline on front-page stories on deaths of people in the community: Fire Chief Bill Ward is dead, Businessman Joe Barry is dead, Funnyman Jerry Kinder is dead, James Taylor, founder of local VFW, is dead, Mr. Sopchoppy Bill Stephens is dead at 72. The stories are meant to mark the passing of people who contributed to this community. Something about the McFalls headline struck a lot of people the wrong way.

Wells, Wakulla County Supervisor of Elections, and to his staff members Joseph Morgan and Celina Greene for the ef ciency the Election Of ce displayed in tallying and verifying to the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners that the petition Ensures Local Control and Protection for Wakulla Countys Wetlands had met all required petition drive requirements as of Feb. 27, 2014. The Elections Office certified to the County Commission that we had submitted the 5,555 petitions required, i.e., the 30 percent of electors quali ed to vote in each of the ve election commission districts. We greatly appreciate the competent and totally nonpartisan manner the Election Of ce approached and completed the task. Sincerely, Victor W. Lambou Chair Wakulla Wetlands Alliance Editor, The News: Ernest Hemingway once said: When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen. I decided to try this at the March 3 BOCC meeting with interesting results. After the meeting I found myself thinking, did the commissioners really say what I think they did? To con rm my memory I watched the video on YouTube. While much of the meeting was taken up with the controversy over the 319/98 Wakulla high school intersection, I found the discussion of Commissioner Randy Merritts agenda item to modify the current Wetland Ordinance by permitting variances within the 35 foot no touch portion of the wetland setback to be quite illuminating. Commissioner Howard Kessler provided a second and discussion ensued. Merritt attempted to explain to the other commissioners his concern that the wetlands referendum might actually pass and that a better strategy than eliminating wetland protections entirely would be to offer variances within the 35 foot buffer zone. Merritt: If we get rid of it altogether the citizens choice is going to be no county wetlands protection or this protection and I believe that is going to be a compelling case for some people to want to vote for it. Chairman Richard Harden, explaining why he would not support the motion: My biggest hang-up with this is, if someone has a 150foot lot this would help them. It would help a few people initially, but there are landowners that have large acres that have wetlands on their acres. It would leave them with no touch zones even with the variance. Merritt: My point is, the choices that the citizens are going to have when they go into that voting booth. If we repeal it altogether the choice is going to be wetlands protection or no wetlands protection. Commissioner Jerry Moore: One of the things about politicians is we run on one issue and get into of ce and change our minds. I ran on the issue of sending this wetlands issue back to Tallahassee and I stand by that. I will not change my mind. Kessler: Mr. Moore you ran on jobsI didnt see one sign that said Get rid of wetlands you ran on jobs, jobs, jobs. In the wrap-up discussion at the end of the meeting when discussion of the 319/98 intersection came up brie y, there was reference to the money ($885,000) that Moore made from the sale to the state for the property for relocating that intersection. Moore: My mother always told me that when someone offers you money, Just take it, son. And I believe she was a very wise woman. From these interchanges the following is clear: Merritt is searching for a way to derail the momentum of the referendum vote by softening the commissions all-or-nothing stance. Hardens concern for property rights extends primarily to those with the large acres like he owns. Lastly, it somehow eludes Moore that he is one of those politicians who runs on one issue and gets into of ce and change our minds, and that taking money from whomever offers it is not the best recommendation for a public servant. James Hennessey Crawfordville Editor, The News: We would like to thank everyone for coming out and supporting Florida Wild Mammal Association at our biannual yard sale. Our donors provided tons of really great items, both before and during the event. We also saw quite a few familiar faces who never miss our yard sales and stop in for a visit or to pick out some new treasures. We always look forward to seeing everyone, you make these events so much fun! Last but not least, we could not have done this without the support of our awesome volunteers who did a super job running the show. Thanks to your support we were able to raise $2,000 for the center. This will care for lots of critters! We had a wonderful time, and you all made it a fantastic event! All items that were left over from the sale were donated to Promise Land Ministries Thrift Store to bene t another good cause. Thanks again for your support! Chris Beatty FWMAEditor, The News: Speaking on behalf of The Sunshine Volunteers who perform weekly at Eden Springs Nursing Home, we would like to express a concern, which we hope can be addressed. We are and have been for years a very committed group, sharing our talents each week, and some twice a week, to the beautiful residents living there. We provide them not only with our music, but with our hearts, a hug, a smile or just a kind word means so much. We get as much from them, as they get from us. Our group consists of singers, guitars, banjo, violin, dobro and piano. However, the piano has been removed, due to damage. We are told, that the facility is unable to afford a piano. This inspired us to locate one, if possible. The elderly should not be denied anything that will add enjoyment and comfort for them. Most nursing homes provide a piano and encourage the volunteers to be a part. If they did not have the many willing and generous volunteers that provide their time each week, their energy and gas to ensure they enjoy life as much as possible, this program would not exist. We do appreciate the opportunity we have been given to share our talents each week for a very worthwhile and rewarding time with special people. Our hope and prayer is that someone will help us locate a good piano for a very worthwhile cause. Sincerely, Mary Watson 421-1948 Berney Barwick 567-6783Editor, The News: The Democratic Womens Club of Wakulla County extends a heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped make the 1st Annual Girls Nite Out Health & Wellness Fair such a successful event. As you may know, ALL proceeds from this event will be donated to Wakulla Relay for Life. We want to especially thank Body Tek in Crawfordville for the generous use of their facilities to hold this event. It was a perfect venue. We also want to thank all our vendors who attended whose products were all beautiful, healthy or educational. Without them we couldnt have done this. In addition, we want to thank the numerous businesses in the county who so generously donated gifts for the chance drawings that were held throughout the evening or other items we needed for the event. And last, but not least, we want to thank all of you who came out to support this worthy cause. Next year we will be back to do it again, bigger and better. Thank you all from the Democratic Womens Club of Wakulla County! Diane Wilson President Wakulla DWC Editor, The News: The issue of wetlands protection will be on the ballot on Nov. 4. It is up to the voters to decide if they want to continue to protect our wetlands as our local ordinance has done since 2006. Wakulla Countys natural environment is its crown jewels, its most valuable asset. It is the core of our local economy, with Wakulla Springs, shing, hunting, boating and eco-tourism bringing in the dollars that support all of us. It is what attracted most of us to call this community home. Crown jewels are highly protected by their owners. They dont let others destroy them. So it seems logical that all of us in Wakulla County should protect our wetlands. Yet there are some people who reject this protection. They say they have property rights, and they want to protect property rights. We all have indisputable property rights, and they should be respected. But our individual property rights have to be balanced against the rights of other citizens and the communitys right for general welfare.. Theodore Roosevelt, that staunch Republican known for his belief in our right to liberty and rugged individualism, had it right as far back as 1910, when he said, Every man holds his property subject to the general right of the community to regulate its use to whatever degree the public welfare may require it.

Crawfordville, Florida By KATHRYN GIBSONSpecial to The NewsSpring Cleaning were words that I had strongly ambivalent feelings about when my mother peppered Sunday dinner with them. Much of my growing up was in New England, so the words heralded in the recognition that wed survived another winter of short days and long nights and that we could begin to shed our layers of winter wear in favor of shorts and T-shirts. It also meant that it was warm enough to open windows and doors for letting the dust out, but cool enough that black ies and mosquitoes had not yet begun their blood thirst. The yearly ritual, begun in 19th century America, demanded that every cupboard and closet be emptied, sorted through, inventoried and cleaned. Items no longer used were cleaned and boxed for my younger cousins. This was the only advantage I can remember of being the oldest. They were all boys, so the girly stuff was boxed and taken to the Salvation Army, Goodwill or the church bazaar. Before their exodus or re-entry items were beaten, scrubbed, aired and repaired. Our yard during these days was lled with multicolored ghosts uttering from every tree and clothesline. The Green Flea Market is an opportunity to recycle items from your home, garage and storage that will bring others pleasure and bring you in some cash. It is an opportunity to showcase your Shabby Chic creations, your refurbished furniture, home dcor and garden art. Flea markets should be like treasure hunts; one never knows what unique and unexpected item might show itself. They can provide chances for connections, networking and the creative exchange of ideas. How many times have you wandered through markets and thought I can do that? We invite vendors of fresh produce, fundraiser food vendors and health service providers. By having a region wide ea market as part of the Expo, we encourage people to stop and park once. There will be something for everyone: vendors, exhibitors, childrens activities and workshops, all at Hudson Park on April 26. Please sign up by April 10th. Contact apiasecki@ comcast.com for a registration form. If you have questions, please contact Kathryn Gibson at 926-9519 or email@example.com.Green Flea Market will be held at the Green Living Expo Wakulla signs to use WCI inmate laborWakulla Sheriff Charlie Creel and Wakulla Correctional Institution Warden James Coker recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to allow the WCSO to use an allotment of up to 10 WCI inmates for work crews supervised by trained sheriffs of ce personnel.

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world. A believers ongoing acts of love and generosity result in a sense of belonging to God, a heart at rest, and clear conscience (1 John 3:19-21). God wants us to have a clear conscience before him. It is the enemy who wants to load us down with feelings of guilt and condemnation, so we are reluctant to come into Gods presence. When we do something we know to be wrong, we feel guilty and uncomfortable. The good thing is God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. He knows our motives, our thoughts, our words, and everything we say or do. God knows all of this and has given us His word to guide us. When we have troubles, when He helps us. We can have a renewed sense of con dence before Him. Believers are to know Gods word, and obey it, so they will not be deceived. They must know and hold to the truth in order to walk in truth.

SNYDERI made the mistake the other night of complaining out loud. It is one thing to complain under your breath so that nobody hears you or knows what you are complaining about. But when you complain out loud, then you run the chance of somebody hearing you. The somebody I was most concerned about was the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Some things are meant to be kept to yourself and for obvious reasons. What are you complaining about, my wife said directing the question to me. At first, I did not know what she was talking about because I did not realize that I was vocalizing my complaints. All I could say at the time was, Did I say that out loud? My wife has a delicate way of backing me in a corner where I have to say what is on my mind. Fortunately, I do not have much of a mind for anything to get on. Unfortunately, my tongue is not attached to anything and so it is loosey-goosey. What I was complaining about were all the crazy people, particularly on television. Just when you think you have seen the most crazy thing, something else or someone else takes the lead in the race to crazyville. Since my wife asked me, I let go on a very eloquent rant against crazy. At this point, I forget the exact crazy that set me off. But it does not matter. If it were not one thing, it would be another thing. I have tried throughout my life to be an equal crazy complainer. If you are crazy, you can be sure I am going to complain about you. You, in particular, my wife was directing this toward me, ought to be quite thankful about all of the crazy people in the world. That set me off on another rant. I am not thankful for the crazy people in this world. The less crazy people the better I am going to like it. And I made the mistake of telling her exactly what I thought about that. We do not need more crazy people, I argued. Someone in Congress ought to pass a law against crazy. While I said that, it occurred to me that most of the crazy people are in Congress. Really, my wife argued, you ought to be happy about all the crazy people in the world. One of the things I have learned throughout the years of marital bliss is that if you ask your wife to tell you something, she will do it. But I was desperate at this time and I needed a little bit of clari cation. She looked at me, paused as if she was collecting her thoughts and then said, You should be thankful that there are so many crazy people out in the world. The more crazy people there are, the more you are going to t in. If for some reason we could eliminate all the crazy people in the world you would be a very lonely person. She continued her explanation by saying, Every crazy person takes the focus away from you. If there were not enough crazy people out in the world people would be focusing on you and complaining about how crazy you are. You do not have to hit me over the head with a hammer. That is the thing about my wife. When she is right, she is right. At least it gave me a new perspective on the world around me. Also, a new appreciation for crazy. I began to see her point of view, as humbling as it was, and realize that crazy has a place. As I further thought about this, I began to realize that everybody is crazy only in different areas of their life. After some deep reection on the subject, I have come to the point where I want to praise crazy. I never thought of it along this line, but everybody has the right to change his or her mind about anything. Personally, I would like to change my mind for one that really works. One mans crazy is another mans delight. What is crazy to one person may be something rather important and enjoyable to another. After all, who am I to say what is crazy and what is not crazy. It is important to nd someone else with something that you can truly appreciate. I thought about that and what Solomon said, Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones (Proverbs 3:7-8). Instead of spending so much time complaining about other people, I need to exercise the ne art of appreciation and learn how to praise people on their terms.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.
Vonceal Owedia Brackins, 80, of Sopchoppy, passed away March 15, 2014 in Tallahassee. She was a Baptist and had lived in this area since 1975 coming from Quincy. She was a bookkeeper. Visitation will be Friday, March 21, 2014 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Bevis Funeral Home, Harvey Young Chapel in Crawfordville. Survivors include three children, Donna Davis (Rodney) of St. Marks, Jennifer Bradley (Randy) of Sopchoppy, and Marie Rudd (Johnny) of Panama City; seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, J.C. Brackins. Bevis Funeral Home in Crawfordville is assisting the family with arrangements (850-926-3333 or bevisfh.com). www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 Page 7Obituaries Vonceal Owedia Brackins Vonceal Owedia BrackinsBy TRACY RENEE LEEWhen I was a young girl, I loved scavenger hunts. At a party, I would receive a list of ordinary things to collect from neighbors homes, along with one or two not so ordinary things. The party host would divide the partygoers into small groups and off we would go on our own little treasure hunt. It was a very fun game lled with thrills of treasure seeking. As an adult, I have a daughter who loves scavenger hunts of a different nature: She is a teenage genealogist sleuth. She combs the internet, lists, books, old letters, documents and any other thing she can put her hands on, seeking information on our ancestral lineage. When she nds her treasure, she is lled with excitement and happiness. I have seen her diligently search for one bit of information for years on end, meeting one disappointment after another. When I was an intern for my professional license, I worked at a very old funeral home in Dallas. The building was huge and had those six-foot wide columns across the front porch. One day at work, I set about clearing out an old bookcase with a large collection of lovely leather bound books. I would estimate that there were at least 40 of these books on the shelves. They were very old, and some were showing signs of deterioration. I asked the Funeral Director in Charge what he would have me do with these old, dusty, musty smelling, leather bound books. He said, Just throw them away, I dont know why we have them. His remarks startled me, and I have never forgotten them. These old leather bound books dating back to the 1800s were hand written ledgers, containing the vital statistics and personal impressions of the funeral director of every person this funeral home had buried for over 100 years. Can you imagine coming across such a trove of hidden information? My mother was a genealogist. Perhaps that is where my daughter inherits such passion for her skill. I remember my mother taking trips to the Deep South to visit old cathedrals in search for lost information in her family lineage. Instead of spending our summers as our friends did, on the coast or at amusement parks, my siblings and I were packed into my mothers station wagon to visit old relatives and priests all summer. We would return to our home just in time for school to begin. While writing this, I have placed a phone call to the old funeral home in Dallas where I interned. I pray those old leather bound books lled with lost treasure have not been destroyed as the funeral director suggested. I hope to rescue them and digitize them so that if there is a genealogist out there searching for a lost member of their family, they might nd their treasure through my efforts. Before becoming a funeral practitioner, I did not know about these books. My mother would have jumped for joy if she had ever come across such a hidden treasure. I hope that if you are searching for lost genealogical records, this information might help you nd your lost loved ones. When I was a young girl, I loved scavenger hunts. Now embarking on a hunt for hidden genealogical treasure, and mortuaries are my oyster. 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.

Page 8 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunityLibrary News...With the Florida Legislature already in session, its that time of the year when we like to remind all of our patrons about the importance of the State Aid to Libraries program. This program, funded through the State Library of Florida, was set up to encourage local governments to increase support for their public libraries. The more that the local governments support their libraries, the more that that library can receive in State Aid. As far as WCPL is concerned, State Aid pays for the majority of library expenses with the exception of salaries, and part of our utilities. The Friends of the Library helps with our Summer Program, summer reading books, and raising money for our planned expansion. State Aid is critical to the running of WCPL so we encourage all who can to contact your Legislator and tell them how important WCPL is to you and the community and to please continue (or increase) funding the State Aid program at its current level. As always we deeply appreciate your continued support.Friday Night MovieOur next Friday Night Movie on the 21st will be the story behind Walt Disney convincing P.L Travers, the author of Mary Poppins, to allow him to make the classic lm.

The goal of HERC is to educate everyone about the atrocities that occurred during Hitlers regime and the Holocaust of World War 2. Some of the education is provided through eyewitness and victims account of the events. Since all of the participants are aging, they are anxious to share their rsthand knowledge and to tell the stories of their harrowing experiences. Mrs. Ellen Peyton, who now lives in Tallahassee, is just such a survivor. She and her family survived Hitler by eeing Berlin on a boat to Shanghai, China. There they lived in a Jewish Ghetto. At that time, Shanghais immigration policy was open and many Jews were able to escape Europe and enter the city of Shanghai. Conditions in the Shanghai Ghetto were harsh, and the Jews living there suffered greatly. To add to their burden, Japan entered into a war with China. As a child Mrs. Peyton recalls the bombs falling in the streets. Mrs. Peyton has many memories, both good and bad, of that time in our history. Mrs. Peyton, and her husband Richard, traveled to Wakulla High School to share her stories with our students. The students truly appreciated the opportunity to ask questions of a person who suffered such hardships and was an eyewitness to such profound events. Mrs. Peytons parting advice to the students was to remain optimistic about life and to get as much education as possible.By SCOTT JOYNERLibrary Director An optimistic message from a Holocaust survivor Alvin Ailey will hold auditions in TallahasseeEllen Robinson Special to the NewsOn Saturday, April 5, New York Citys Of cial Ailey School grand jets into The Tallahassee Ballet studio to hold auditions.

Special to the NewsCrawfordville Elementary School is hosting its annual Spring Festival, now themed as a Country Fair, Saturday, April 5 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Things will look a little different with new activities planned to help support the Country Fair theme. Instead of our regular Spring Festival, you will see an old fashion Country Fair with all the xins plus more. The students are selling tickets that will raise money for items such as books, garden supplies, and eld trips. If the children sell enough tickets their principal gets kissed by a pig, their Dean of Students has to shave his head, and lots of slime cups will get poured on a whole row of teachers and administrators. Everyone is working hard to support the school and the efforts that go into planning and preparing for an event such as the Country Fair. You can support Crawfordville Elementary School and the students by purchasing tickets or becoming a school sponsor. Please call the school if you are interested in either. Of course, just attending the event is a great way to support our school. There will be a giant blow up obstacle course, face painting, popcorn, sno-cones, entertainment, balloons, a new type of dunk tank, an old fashioned pie baking contest, games, themed baskets, grilled food and Bingo with prizes. In fact, we have so many Bingo prizes and requests to play that we have moved Bingo into the larger music room to provide space for more participants and all of the prizes that have been donated and purchased. Be sure to stop by Crawfordville Elementary School Saturday to enjoy a safe day of family fun. You wont be disappointed!Special to The NewsSuperintendent Robert Pearce and the Wakulla County School Board applaud the optimism, positive energy and compassion each of these individuals give to the children of Wakulla County and the enthusiasm they display on behalf of the students, schools, the profession of education and communities they serve. ANGELA DEN BLEYKERCRAWFORDVILLE ELEMENTARY Angela Den Bleyker, March Teacher of the Month, hit the ground running when she began her teaching career seven years ago at Crawfordville Elementary School. A graduate of Flagler College, Den Bleyker sites the time she spends with the students as the most enjoyable part of her job. Originally from Tallahassee and a graduate of Lincoln High School, Den Bleyker pursued her degree, rst by attending TCC and then nished at Flagler. She earned a dual major in elementary education and exceptional student education.

Contributing to the total school program by serving as a member of eco-ambassadors, operation brain power and the project learning tree committee demonstrates her commitment to her students even after they leave third grade. Den Bleyker notes, When a former student comes to visit and shares their accomplishments with me I feel like a proud mom. My love for my students, current and former is why I am a teacher. Crawfordville Elementary School Principal Angie Walker describes Den Bleyker as an incredible person and teacher, She is kind, generous, caring, devoted and professional in all situations. Mrs. Den Bleyker sets the bar about as high as it can go with her uncanny knack to connect with her students and parents. She makes sure that each and every child knows her expectations, models her expectations and feels a part of her class community. Her class is a phenomenal place to enter and almost impossible place to leave. She is engaging to all who cross the threshold. Mrs. Den Bleyker is a role model for all educators, and I am extremely fortunate to have her with me at Crawfordville.

Page 10 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team views SportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track CoachOn Tuesday, March 11, the track teams traveled to Godby High School for the rst annual Tariq Bar eld Invitational Meet. Ten teams attended the rst year event, with the WHS girls placing third overall and the boys placing fourth. The local squads were primarily represented by their junior and senior runners, as the younger runners were slated to attend the Chiles Freshmen/Sophomore Championship Meet later in the week. The competition kicked off with the eld events and WHSs duo of Corion Knight and Keith Gavin led the way with outstanding performances. In the high jump, both cleared the 1st Team US Elite Standard height of 6, with Knight winning the head-to-head competition based on fewer misses. Knight then went on to also win the long jump competition with a leap of 22, a new personal record. The running events started with the 4x800 meter relay, which was won by the WHS boys (Bryce Cole, Evan Guarino, Alan Pearson, Albert Smythe) in the excellent time of 8:45.25. Travis Parks also logged the winning time (11:47.13) in the 3200 meters, with Riley Welch (11:58.30) nailing down second place. Albert Smythe also turned in a good performance in the 1600 meters, placing second in a time of 4:58.99. Boys scoring points for the team included Evan Guarino (7th, 1600 meters, 5:20.56), J.P. Piotrowski (4th, 800 meters, 2:12.35), Malik Thomas (8th, 200 meters, 0:24.11) and the 4 x 100 relay team (4th) and the 4x400 relay team (5th). The girls were led once again by the outstanding performances of senior Madison Harris, who usually runs the 800 meters, but who dropped down in distances this week, placing second in the 400 meters in a new school record time of 0:58.77. She then followed that up with a winning effort in the 200 meters in the excellent time of 0:26.87. Kayla Webbe continued the top performances by winning the 3200 meter run (13:05.37) and placing second in the 1600 meters (6:07.19). In the 800 meters, Lydia Wiedeman turned in the winning performance, logging a time of 2:31.57, with freshman Haleigh Martin (2nd, 2:32.95) in hot pursuit. The girls relay teams also turned in top performances. The WHS girls (Haleigh Martin, Kayla Webbe, Marty Wiedeman, Lydia Wiedeman) won the 4x800 meter relay in 11:041. The team of Lydia Wiedeman, Sarah Thigpen, Adrianna Mitchell and Madison Harris turned in one of the most electrifying performances of the evening in the 4x400 meter relay, battling Lincoln and Godby throughout the race. The rst three girls kept the local team in second place, battling Godby, with Lincoln holding what appeared to be an insurmountable lead of approximately 6 seconds when Harris took the baton on the anchor leg, but one thing opponents have learned over the last four years is that no lead is necessarily secure when Harris is anchoring the team. Harris took off after the nal Lincoln runner and steadily closed the gap on the back stretch and then made a furious charge down the final straight, but ran out of track, nishing second in 4:16.80 to Lincolns 4:16.21. Other WHS girls scoring points included Adrianna Mitchell (6th, 200 meters, 0:28.08, 7th, 100 meters, 0:13.86 and 3rd, long jump, 16), Holli Capps (5th, 800 meters, 2:52.99), Commie Lewis (3rd, 1600 meters, 6:14.16), Taylor Vaughn (8th, 100 meter hurdles, 0:20.17), Mikala Gavin (8th, long jump, 14) and Shelby Alsup (6th, discus, 78). WHS GIRLS WIN AT 15TH ANNUAL CHILES FRESHMAN/ SOPHOMORE MEET On Friday, March 14, the WHS track newbies started their spring break by traveling to Chiles High School for their annual freshman/ sophomore championship meet. Eight schools elded teams for the meet and when the dust had nally settled at about 8:30 p.m., the local girls squad had secured a victory and claimed their rst trophy ever at this meet. Only nine local girls traveled to the meet, but early on they made it known that they would be a factor. The long jump was one of the rst events and the multi-talented freshman, Adrianna Mitchell, led the field winning with a leap of 16, with teammates Mikala Gavin (2nd, 15) and Shaniece Johnson (5th, 12.5) also placing in the top eight. The running events then began with the 100 meter hurdles and Johnson ran a strong race, just getting nipped at the end, but securing second place in a new personal recored (PR) of 0:20.29. The 100 meter dash followed and set the stage for a remarkable evening for Mitchell. By the time the meet was over she secured victories in the 100 meters (0:13.49), the 200 meters (0:27.60) and the 400 meters (1:03.71), to sweep all the sprint events. Gavin also performed well, garnering a 6th place (0:0:14.04) in the 100 meters and 5th (0:29.40) in the 200 meters. Dazaha Jackson also scored in the 100 meters, nabbing 8th place (0:14.06). In the 400 meters, freshman Sarah Thigpen continued to improve and secured 3rd place (1:05.84), setting a new PR by over 2 seconds. Then it was time to turn the scoring over to the middle distance girls and they continued in the same vein. In the 1600 meters Leon runner Grace Lockhart took the lead from the beginning and steadily kept building on it. WHS standout Haleigh Martin found herself steadily falling further and further behind while struggling with a severe side stitch. With 200 meters to go it look like she would have to settle for second place, but her heart kicked in at that point and she mounted a furious charge, closing the gap with each stride and ended up nipping Lockhart at the nish line. Martins time was 5:50.41 to Lockharts 5:50.62, not Martins best time, but her guttiest race to date. Sophomore Connie Lewis ran a new PR, 6:12.14, to nish in 4th place. Martin returned in the 800 meters and, minus the side stitch, dominated the field, winning in 2:36.68, almost 11 seconds ahead of the second place finisher. Freshman Emily Lawrence, competing in her rst high school meet, secured 6th place (3:02.73), claiming 3 points for the local squad. Connie Lewis, looking strong and controlled, then proceeded to win the 3200 meters in a new PR of 13:46.32. Going into the nal event of the day for the girls, it looked like with a good showing in the 4 x 400 meter relay the WHS girls could secure a second place nish. The 4 x 400 squad of Shaniece Johnson, Sarah Thigpen, Dazaha Jackson and Haleigh Martin lined up at the start committed to putting everything they had into the effort. They were running in third place behind both Port St. Joe (the meet leaders) and Leon when Martin received the baton. She started at least 6 seconds behind the Leon runner and it looked like an insurmountable de cit, but she then proceeded to pull a Madi as set off in pursuit of the Leon girl. With every stride, she closed the gap just a little bit and by the time they reached the home stretch she was in full flight and furiously trying to close the nal 2 seconds. Once again, she nipped the Leon runner at the line, securing what appeared to be second place in the race. The race winner was later moved into an open category and taken out of the scoring for the freshman/sophomore classification as they had an upper classman on the team, giving the WHS squad the win and the 10 points, which turned out to be critical in the overall team scoring. After the nal scores were tabulated, the WHS girls ended up winning the meet by 1/2 point, 121 to 120.5, over the Port St. Joe squad. In the process, the girls won every individual at track (not over hurdles) event at the meet, meaning the 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 and 3200, plus the long jump and 4x400 relay. The boys competition for the WHS team lacked the drama of the girls competition, but the local runners still had some good performances. In the sprints, Demarcus Lindsey ran a very solid 100 meters, claiming 5th place (0:12.05) and Sebastian Garner nabbed a 4th place nish in the 400 meters (0:56.03). In the 800 meters, sophomore Albert Smythe ran a new PR, nishing second in the excellent time of 2:05.54 and Bryce Cole placed 7th in 2:16.14. In the 1600 meters, Bryce Cole ran a strong, controlled race, nishing in second place in a new PR of 4:44.74. Smythe rounded out the scoring for the local team by finishing 4th in the 3200 meters (11:06.35), literally minutes after running his 800 meter PR. Other notable PRs included Evan Gurarino (800 meters, 2:19.39 & 1600 meters, 5:13.93), William Thomas (800 meters, 2:37.34 & 1600 meters, 6:01.65), Tyler Westcott (1600 meters, 6:02.54 & 3200 meters, 13:10.23), Nick Emerson (1600 meters, 5:57.61 & 3200 meters, 13:09.94), Sebastien Garner (200 meters, 0:25.21) and Justin Green (100 meters, 0:12.47). Overall, both team performed well tonight, said Coach Paul Hoover. But the girls were outstanding. All the girls really stepped up, but we couldnt have asked for anything more from Adrianna and Haleigh. Adrianna won four events, including sweeping all of the sprints and that is just almost never done. Haleigh won two individual events, plus ran the critical anchor leg in the 4 X 400 relay. This is the rst meet since I have been at the school where the sprint girls out-pointed our middle distance runners and that is great to see, he said. The credit for that goes to the excellent work that Coach Gavin is doing with the sprinters and jumpers. The teams performance at this meet is also a tribute to the excellent middle school program run by Coach Chad Linville at Riversprings Middle School, as that is where the vast majority of our top young athletes come from. LOCAL TRACK ATHLETES RANKED NATIONALLY Three local high school track athletes have logged performances that currently rank in the top 10 in the nation: Senior Madison Harris 2:14.39 in the 800 meters is currently the 5th fastest time for a high school girl recorded this so far this season; and high jumpers senior Corion Knight and sophomore Keith Gavin, are both tied for 7th place with jumps of 6.TRACKTeams compete in two meets last week SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe WHS underclassmen girls with the trophy at the Chiles meet.Runner Cora Atkinson signs a scholarship with Life College.

I went to Crawfordville the other day early. I needed to see Jenny at The Wakulla News about an article she was doing on the mural Ive recently completed (See mural story on Page 14). I knew The News ofce wasnt open at 7:30 and so I went for breakfast at Huddle House. A cup of the tasty coffee warmed my soul on this extremely rainy dawn, as overnight I had a good 5 to 6 inches of rain at our home in Smith Creek. Looking out the window, I couldnt help but notice some black vultures swooping low directly over the restaurant, tipping their heads to look (it seemed) right in at me. Dont look at me like that, I thought. I aint dead yet! Then I noted fish crows, about a dozen over the parking areas, and another blackish bird, the European starling. Laughing gulls ew up, and on the wires were some Eurasian collared doves. Neat, I thought. There is a column! As a child up in Indiana, only turkey vultures were seen there, except in the dead of winter. Now, though, they are as common as the turkey vulture, so they slowly are expanding their range northward as the worlds temperatures over the last two decades has slowly warmed. Adult turkey vultures have a reddish head, the blacks is blackish. The turkey has around a 7-foot wing span, while the Blacks is only about five. Yet the black weighs about 5 pounds, the turkey only around 2-3 pounds. The turkey has (unlike most birds) a very keen sense of smell, and often is the scavenger that detects death a meal first. They will land and start dismembering a carcass only to be spotted by the heavier black vultures, which will drive the turkey off. The black being heavier will have to ap around three or four times, then glide, then resume apping again, and again glide for a short distance, untill they gain enough elevation to soar, while the turkey may cover the same distance with out apping once! Also the turkey is so light in weight, any tiny updraft from below or change is wind speed or direction will cause it to constantly tip the wings, as if unsteady, while the black has a direct purposeful strong ight. The black holds its wings fairly at out with just a slight dihedral, but the turkey really tips its wings up, and so from a great distance these two can be separated as to species nearly instantly. The bald eagle when pausing between aps holds its wings dead at! Also blacks have a shorter tail, and have a light area out in the last half of the wings from below (in the primaries) while the turkeys wings are all uniform in color. And, there is much more, BUT lets move on to the crows. We have two distinct species of crows in our region: the American Crow and the Fish Crow. In our country we also have the Northwestern Crow, and the Tamualipas Crow found in Mexico up to extreme south Texas. And, in British Columbia, occasionally is seen the smaller Eurasian Jackdaw. Our Fish crow is smaller than the American crow and has a smaller bill as well, but separating the two by looks alone takes more skill than I have! However their calls are quite different. The drawn out caw-cawcaw of the crow found in farmland thoughout North America is replaced along our southeastern coastal regions by the Fish Crows call, a ca ha. Here in the winter months we see Fish crows in large flocks, never the American crow, as you might in Indiana or Kansas. Actually, before our present Crawfordville Winn-Dixie was built, the area where it now sits and the parking lot was a winter roost for hundreds of these crows. I was saddened to see their rookery attened. Fish crow are often literally seen on our beaches feeding on washed up marine life. And like all the birds in the raven, crow, magpie, jay family of Corvidae are very smart. In Europe they are considered the most highly developed, evolved bird because of their smarts. As an example, theyve been observed playing in the snow by landing on a bank, holding their wings in tight, and dropping to the snow and rolling down the snow bank, only to y back and do it again and again. Ive seen this documented on TV! The European starling is a scourge, an exotic that has taken over many countries like ours, displacing many of our native species. Being aggressive or pushy, they take over a birdfeeder, and force other avian species from their nests. Their generic name is Sturnus vulgaris, and indeed they are rather vulgar! Yet in East Africa alone Ive been blessed to observe some of the many 30 starling species there that are absolutely stunning in beauty, like the Golden-breasted, Red-winged, Greater Blue-eared, Ruppells Long-tailed, Magpie,and Superb Starling, all of vivid colors, and shimmering iridescence. Our native Laughing gulls are now getting their adult breeding plumage, the stunning black heads with blood red bills, and feet too. They get quite handsome this time of year, and are often seen resting in the Winn-Dixie parking lot, (along with some wintering Ring-Billed Gulls with their yellowish legs and beak with a dark ring). Often we see a pair of Laughing gulls side up to each other, stand very erect, droop their wings in a courting stance, and then pointing their heads straight up theyll alternate laughing a call that indeed does sound like a laugh hence their name. They soon will be nesting on some of our bay islands by the hundreds! About 20 years ago, possibly earlier, some doves escaped or were released in the TampaSt. Pete area. The experts identified them as Ringerd Turtle Doves, but they were Eurasian collared dove, which have the ring on the neck yes, but a different patterned tail and are darker than the Turtle dove. Soon they started spreading along the west coast, and we began to see them around our coastal towns like Panacea, St. Marks, and then inland. I knew they were expanding their range into Georgia, but on a trip out west four years ago, I was shocked to find them in the Badlands, and at Devils Tower, and now theyve expanded their range completely across the entire southern part of our country in just a few years. Amazing! Their call or song (to me) sounds as if they are repeating the phrase, Youre cuckoo, youre cuckoo, youre cuckoo. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 Page 11outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH From The DockBY CAPT.

I heard anywhere from 6 to 9 inches. Thats a lot of freshwater dumping into the bay. It was starting to clear up around Shell Point but this will de nitely change things. With the full moon the other day, shing should be really good this coming weekend unless all the rain affected them. I had a charter for last Monday but due to the fact that where I sh had been pretty slow, I asked Randy Peart to take them. He had been shing at Spring Warrior and catching plenty of sh on a Twitch N Rap and gold Rattlin Red ns but said he was gonna sh the Econ na on Sunday. He did real well on Sunday so he took them to the Econfina where they limited out on trout and caught several Spanish and some nice rockbass. He caught the trout at the mouth of a creek and the rockbass and Spanish came from about 12 feet of water. Capt. David Fife continues to catch nice strings of trout using mostly top water Mirrolures and live mud minnows. He said he was catching a few reds but not very many. Fishing down around Spring Warrior and Keaton Beach continues to be very good. Top water baits, gold Rattlin Redns, live shrimp and the Gulp are all producing nice sh. One of my neighbors said a friend of his shes out of Steinhatchee and he has been catching lots of big trout on a lure made by Live Target that looks like a menhaden. Last Tuesday I shed for about three hours on the falling tide and caught 17 trout, one ounder and one Spanish. The next day I had charter and the wind blew 20-25 mph out of the NNW. We wont talk about that day. Saturday, Mike Pearson and I went for a couple of hours and shed the same spot I did on Tuesday and every one of those places had trout on them. We also caught trout to 4 pounds on the ats. Dont forget about the Sport Fishing exhibit which started on the 14th at the Museum of Florida history, located at 500 South Bronough.

Page 12 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comThis week, Alexander Gulde submitted the following article: Here in Floridas Big Bend, spring has arrived and many of our friends and neighbors are ready to return to the water to sh and enjoy all that our shores and rivers have to offer. However, many also took the time to attend the Annual St. Patricks Day Festival and Parade in Crawfordville on Saturday, March 15, and members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 12, Apalachee Bay were there to join in the celebration and to share important knowledge about being safe on the water. Members who were able to participate were Mike Harrison, Chuck Hickman (and his facility), Robert Spraker, Jack West, and Alexander Gulde. Prospective member Ron Eudy also attended. The Flotilla participated by entering one of our member-owned facilities (boats) in the parade and by staffing a booth with some great information on safe boating, navigation rules, protecting the environment and other materials for kids and adults alike. We answered some great questions about boating and paddle sports in the area, and were able to spread the word about our upcoming boating safety course in Crawfordville on Saturday, April 12. A Coast Guard Auxiliary Boating Safety Course is a great way for new and experienced boaters alike to acquire and refresh their knowledge and the opportunity to hear from experienced Coast Guard Auxiliarists and a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Of cer about boating safety. The course also offers the opportunity to earn the FWCs Boating Safety Education ID Card, which is required for anyone born after Jan. 1, 1988 in order to operate a boat legally in Florida. Even if you are not required to complete the course, many insurance companies offer discounts on their boat insurance to those who have earned the Boating Safety Education ID Card. If you are interested in learning more about our next boating safety course, please look at our website at www.uscgaux.net.

My lecture at TCC this week covers marine life as it relates to the diver. This is one of my favorite topics as a marine biologist, and one I get enormous satisfaction from sharing with others. Of course, my students are primarily interested in what is dangerous to them underwater such that they can avoid injury. While I can appreciate our underwater world is akin to a foreign planet, the marine life represent its rich cultural inhabitants. They each have a story to tell. With todays video technology, and research into their life histories, I nd numerous entertaining examples of animal behavior on the Internet. Most marine life can be safely handled if done gently and carefully. Those that pose a problem to us often do so in defense of boundaries we accidentally cross. There are exceptions that we cover in detail in the class such as mantis shrimp, sea cucumber, angler sh, and moray eels, just to name a few. So I began by discussing the very colorful mantis shrimp, a curious creature, many not suited for aquariums, because they are very territorial. When they see themselves in the re ection of the enclosure wall, they strike out with exing hammers and break the glass. A close relative uses the same arms but rather than hammers, they have spears. Any sh occupants in the tank soon become food for the mantis. Dont be lured into exposing a nger to inspect this critter, as it will just as likely spear you as well. They live in sand borrows underwater and are very entertaining if you nd one on the reef. They do get big enough to eat, but dont be fooled. At night they are attracted to surface light, where they go to feed. A stern light off your boat at night will attract them, where they will feed voraciously on others also attracted to your light. One night off the Dry Tortugas, a colleague decided to capture a nearly foot long one by hand, with disastrous consequences, and much hilarity by his students. A great YouTube video clip of the Mantis Shrimp can be seen at True Facts About the Mantis Shrimp. Another creature we discuss in the lecture is the sea cucumber. Contrary to the shrimp, they are very slow and undistinguished on the reef. Some call them the sea pig, as they feed on dendrites. We alert divers to not harass them because when upset, the sea cucumber eviscerates its unpleasant sticky innards all over you. Again I refer you to True Facts About the Sea Pig YouTube. Stone Fish have poisonous dorsal ns that easily puncture our skin if they get too close. Otherwise they are fascinating creatures to watch. Close relatives are called angler sh that use a lure to attract live food, then snapping them up. These sh do not otherwise move fast, and often use cryptic camou age, making detection dif cult, until you place your hand on them. For great entertainment see the YouTube True Facts About the Angler Fish. Feeding sh like the moray eel is asking for a misunderstanding. Here we have a creature that is much bigger than you think, hiding most of its body in the reef. When it clamps down on your offering, it may mistake your ngers, or other body parts, as part of the treat. Its large backward facing teeth once clamped are dif cult to disengage (much like a hawks talons). In the excitement that follows, the eel retreats into the reef taking your attached arm with it. Here is a short video clip about just such a misunderstanding. http://www.youtube. com/watch?v=ySunWYj8lWQ. Use caution when interacting with marine life.

Page 14 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com & By JENNY ODOMreporter@thewakullanews.netAt 79, George Weymouth goes where nature calls. Whether its in the woods around his home in Wakulla County or the plains of Africa, his favorite place to be is in the great outdoors. My church is the woods, if you follow me, he says. When I go out there, its where I nd God. The artist and naturalist travels the globe with his companion, Patty Murray, who is also an avid outdoors enthusiast. The two are planning a trip to Antarctica later this year. When hes not outdoors collecting ideas in his sanctuary, Weymouth works as a painter, sculptor and writer. He has been writing articles on nature and wildlife for The Wakulla News for years. Since my mid-20s, all the jobs Ive had have been nature related, Weymouth says. Ive been lucky to work at naturally wonderful places like Wakulla Springs, Florida State Museum of Natural History and Tates Hell, just to name a few. I was also a bird guide for 15 years at Sanibel Island, he says. Nelson Martin, a friend of Weymouth who has been involved in preservation efforts in Sopchoppy, wanted to dress up the small town with some murals, so he put together a proposal and presented it to the Sopchoppy Preservation and Improvement Association (SPIA). He contacted Bad Bobs Bait and Tackle about using the front of the building to create the mural, and then he talked to Weymouth about painting it. Weymouth accepted the challenge and began to lay out an idea for the mural. This is the biggest project weve done so far, says Martin, who dedicates many hours and his own expertise to SPIA projects. Weymouths attention to detail and the critters, is why we asked him to be the artist, says Bill Lowrie, president of SPIA. SPIA has been raising money at the Worm Gruntin Festival each year to fund various projects around Sopchoppy. The completed mural is 24 feet long and 8 feet tall and spans half of the front wall of Bad Bobs Bait and Tackle, located just before the heavy curve and fork as you enter Sopchoppy on Highway 319. The community watched patiently as Weymouth nished the 4 foot panels one at a time. Ive just always been able to do things artistically, says Weymouth. People would tell me that whatever I touch turns out nice. Its an intricate painting, including a lot of detail work. The longer you look at it, the more you nd. Children of all ages are drawn to the mural. They stand, eyes searching for snakes, turtles, birds, bugs and other creatures pointing out critters as they spot them. Taxidermy helped me have insight into how things are put together, he explains. Balance, structure and composition comes pretty naturally to me. Weymouth practiced taxidermy for many years, enjoying the biology lesson with each project. Raised in Indiana, Weymouth attended Indiana University, but it wasnt schooling that worked for him. Hes just always been naturally curious about the outdoors and wildlife, he explains. Since childhood he has had a deep interest in nature and in biology. I was always outdoors sneaking around the woods bow hunting, or shing, he says. I have studied and read a lot. The owners of Bad Bobs, Robby and Lisa Porter, are thrilled with the outcome. We love it, said Lisa. I think it adds a personal touch. People are always stopping to look at it. The only problem is that with limited space in the parking lot, people tend to park their cars and trucks in front of it. George came in one day and said, Yall must not like my mural very much, you keep covering it up with cars, she laughs. Weymouth has also been commissioned to create murals along the forgotten coast in Carrabelle, at City Hall, and at Tates Hell State Forest. As well, he says hes been looking back at his past articles for the News, and hes working on a book. Im taking articles Ive written for The News and compiling them to create a book, he says. Its good for me, I like to write. Weymouth becomes sentimental as he speaks about the quickly changing state of the world. Wherever I go, there are too many people, he says. Animals are diminishing at an incredible rate. There are half as many songbirds now, and the monarch is disappearing right before my eyes, Weymouth says. In Mexico, the monarch used to migrate to three mountains, then it became three acres, and now its three trees, he says, shaking his head. The white man is causing a great extinction, and maybe his own. Weymouth shares his concern for the earth, but today is a day to celebrate as SPIA holds a dedication for the mural and the muralist. A group of volunteers pose for photographs in front of the mural. Most of all, I want to thank George for his hard work and dedication, says Lowrie. It really turned out great.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 Page 15I want to tell you all the story of some very rare squirrels three of us boys killed while hunting way back in 1958 in the swamps of the Wakulla River. We have never seen such squirrels before or since, and we routinely hunted in the same vicinity lots of times. They turned out to be so rare that Id challenge any of you reading this to have ever seen them either. If you head upriver from where the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers join at Fort San Marcos de Apalache, by boat, about a mile or so upriver on the left, you could see the fence line marking the boundary of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. If going in by boat, we would pull in a hundred yards or so past that boundary fence and enter there. If by vehicle, we would cross over the Lower Bridge on Highway 98 and turn left after about a half a mile onto a dirt road and then left again on another dirt road which paralleled the Refuge fence line. On this particular hunting trip we drove in and parked near the fence line. This was another of those trips young boys like us loved to take where we took in a few supplies and hunted and camped for a day or two. My hunting partners were good buddies Van Page and Lane Eaton. Another fellow joined us about suppertime, Edward Kerce, the brother of another of our friends, Jim Kerce. Ed was a game warden and spotted my car while on his patrol. From there he saw our camp re where we were preparing our supper and came over and joined us. More about that later. Van and I featured ourselves as men (we were actually just boys) who could live off the land as long as we had our rearms and a few basic supplies like grease and a frying pan. Folks like Daniel Boone and Davey Crockett were our heroes. Now Lane, having better sense, prepared much better (or his mom probably did) and he came with all kinds of good things to eat such as potato chips, sandwiches, soft drinks, and sweets such as small cakes and candy bars. We got our camp set up and were ready to kill some squirrels for our supper, about 1 p.m. So we all split up and went into different parts of the woods bordering the Wakulla River. I hunted hard but only killed a couple of small squirrels. I knew Van and Lane werent doing very well either as I heard their guns re only two or three times each all afternoon. So I knew things were going to be tough at suppertime that night. We would have enough to survive, but theres not a whole lot of meat on a small squirrel, and we would de nitely go to bed hungry unless we could kill some more. And hunting them is not that easy. You cover a lot of ground and work up a good appetite. Daniel Boone and Davey Crockett would never be so weak and wimpy as to search out a grocery store to supplement their hunting skills, and neither would we. As the afternoon wore on and my hunger increased, I began to think longingly of Lanes great store of goodies back at the camp. I rationalized that, of course, since we were friends, he wouldnt mind a bit if I sampled just a small portion of what his mom had packed for him. Maybe just a sandwich and a piece of cake. Why, since we were such good friends, Lane would not only be happy to share with me, but he would expect me to help myself, even without asking him. So I quietly made my way back to camp. As I approached the camp, I detected movement! Someone in our camp stealing our supplies? To his complete surprise, who did I nd in our camp? My old buddy, Van Page. Van had been there a while and was well into Lanes food supply when I showed up. We could hear the report of Lanes gun way down in the swamp every once in a while, so felt free to safely dip into some of his food. I went ahead and ate just one sandwich and one piece of cake. Van had already had his ll, but there was still a little bit left for Lane as we dared not clean him out since he would be returning to camp and could be armed and dangerous if he nds out we ate all his food. Thankfully, it turned out that Lane, being the good-natured fellow he had always been, was not too angry with us, especially since Van and I had been kind enough to leave him enough for one good meal. After Lane nished the remainder of his food, we sat around the re, talking and having a good time. We spent too much time as we were not all that hungry, and let the sun get way down in the sky. We had only killed about five squirrels and still had to clean and cook them. It was decided that I would be the cook and Van and Lane would take the squirrels down to a nearby spring fed creek where they cleaned them very well. It was pitch dark by now, and everything we did required use of a flashlight. When they got back, I had the frying pan and grease good and hot. It was at this time that Ed Kerce, the game warden, showed up and joined us by the fire. We invited him to share the squirrels with us, but he declined. If youve ever tried to cook anything over a bright camp re in the dead of night using a flashlight to see how it was going, youll know it doesnt work that well. The re will blind you so that it is dif cult to see anything in the pan. So I was cooking by dead reckoning. It was about this time that we discovered how rare those squirrels were. Now when I say rare, I dont mean like the kind of rare where something is an endangered species, I mean rare like, How would you like your steak cooked? that kind of rare. After all these years, I have never forgotten. As I cooked the squirrels and set them aside on a tin plate to cool, Lane and Van began to eat them. They complimented me on how good they were, saying they had never had such tender and juicy squirrel meat. I finished cooking my last squirrel and as I put it on the tin plate, in the periphery of the light from my flashlight, I noticed something strange about Vans face, and shined the light directly on him. I swear, he looked like one of those characters in a Dracula movie, as small streams of squirrel blood were running down from his mouth as he gnawed on a squirrel bone! There was blood around Lanes mouth too! No matter how hard they tried to vomit up the squirrel meat, both were unable to do so. They found a little relief by drinking lots of water. I thought Ed Kerce would die laughing at them. Van and Lane both survived and are still alive today. Its been a long time ago, but Id bet if you asked them if they remember eating those juicy, rare squirrels down on the Wakulla River, youll see them swallow hard and turn pale. And you know, although we camped and hunted together a few times after that, I cant recall them ever again asking me to cook for them.

By PAUL HOOVERWHS Track CoachFormer Wakulla High School runner, Cora Atkinson, recently signed a scholarship to run cross country and track for Life University in Marietta, Ga. Atkinson, who graduated from WHS in 2012, was an outstanding cross country and track running for four years during her high school career, earning varsity letters in both sports all four years, as well as being part of the rst WHS cross country team to qualify for the State Meet. She currently holds the school record in the 3200 meters on the track. During the 2012-13 academic year she ran on the Striders Team at FSU, but decided not to run with FSU this year to save a year of eligibility. She has continued to run and those efforts were rewarded on Tuesday, March 11, when she signed with Life University to continue her education as well as her athletic career. Atkinson plans to dually enroll at Life in both the Undergraduate Program to finish her Bachelors degree in Biology and the Doctor of Chiropractic program. It will be a challenge to pursue both degrees and also compete in athletics, but should not be a problem for Atkinson. While in high school, she took and passed seven AP classes her senior year and still found time to compete at a high level in cross country and track. While taking a full load of classes this year at FSU, Atkinson has also found the time to give back to the sport she loves by returning to WHS as a volunteer in both cross country and track and has become an integral part of the WHS coaching team. At the signing ceremony, Life coach Dr. Catherine Foust said: I am very excited for Cora to join our group. Immediately, shes going to be a signi cant factor and contributor to our team. Cora has a great work ethic, and it takes a special breed to be able to handle the workload of both an intercollegiate cross country schedule and the dual enrollment in Undergrad and Doctor of Chiropractic courses. High school coach Paul Hoover said of Atkinson: Cora is a really special person and athlete. During her four years with us, I have seen her grow and mature into such a fine young woman, as well as an outstanding athlete. She is not necessarily one of the most gifted runners weve had in the program, but she is one of the hardest working and most dedicated, and I am so glad her efforts have culminated in a college scholarship. I absolutely couldnt be prouder of her. Atkinson becomes the fourth current or former WHS runner to sign a collegiate scholarship to run during the next academic year. She joins current WHS signees Madison Harris (FSU), Marty Wiedeman (Chipola College) and Kayla Webbe (Palm Beach Atlantic University) as they pursue college running careers.TRACKCora Atkinson signs to run with Life University SPECIAL TO THE NEWSFormer WHS runner Cora Atkinson at the signing.

Page 22 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, March 20, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comWEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)History intrudes on legislative session By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, March 14 Despite all the action underway during the legislative session over the last week, the Capitol seemed like a place stuck in past decades. The death of former Gov. Reubin Askew, one of the most important figures in Florida history, triggered nostalgia for the days when the teetotaling chief executive worked to safeguard the environment, repair scandal-tarnished courts and open government business to the public. Askew passed away on the same day that the Florida Supreme Court threw out a medical malpractice law approved by the Legislature 11 years ago and subject to controversy ever since. Both events came a couple of days after former Chief Financial Of cer Alex Sink, who rst ran for statewide of ce in 2006, once again stood before voters, this time in a special congressional election that was instead won by Republican lobbyist David Jolly. And while the Legislature spent the week on present and future concerns, GOP lawmakers devoted much of their time to discussing one of the partys golden oldie issues: Tax cuts. The legislative session isnt history yet not even close but the week was a reminder that even once it has ended, its effects can be felt for years.ONE OF THE GREAT LEADERSWith the exception of the late Gov. LeRoy Collins, Askew is seen as perhaps the most in uential politician in Florida history. The prim, almost prudish Democrat was rst elected in 1970, defeating incumbent Republican Claude Kirk, the rst GOP governor in the modern era. Askew won again in 1974, becoming the rst governor in Florida history to be elected to successive four-year terms. (Many, though not all, earlier governors were barred from running for more than one term, or could only run for two-year terms, depending on the Constitution at the time.) Florida was in the midst of a population and development boom when Askew took over as chief executive. The state was still grappling with racial tensions prompted by the U.S. Supreme Court decision that put an end to school segregation. The devoutly religious Askew, born in Muskogee, Okla., was on the opposite side of many other Southern politicians, as well as many of his Pensacola constituents, in his call for racial reconciliation. Askew clashed with conservatives over a straw poll opposing school busing, offering his own proposal asking voters if they wanted to keep schools integrated. Neither was binding, and both were approved. The governor led a drive to reform the states judicial system after two state Supreme Court justices were forced out of of ce. He successfully pushed for a constitutional amendment requiring public of cials to disclose information about their financial affairs and forcing government records into the sunshine. On the environment, Askew backed legislation creating water management districts and requiring local comprehensive planning. He was a visionary. He saw issues, whether they were in areas of racial fairness or educational opportunities or environmental protection, in a generational perspective, not just whats going to be the best position for the next election. He led by his personal example and by the wisdom of his ideas and the strength of his passions, said former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, a Democrat who also served as governor. Jeb Bush, Floridas first Republican governor elected to successive four-year terms, also praised Askew in a statement. Florida has lost one of the great leaders who played a pivotal role in shaping the trajectory of our state during a time of substantial growth and change, Bush said. He led on contentious issues, fought for equality and did what he believed was in the best interests of Florida families. Governor Askew always put principle before politics, and I was fortunate to know him, seek counsel from him and learn from his years of service.DISAPPOINTING, AS USUAL RULING ON MED MAL LAWAfter more than a decade of legislative and legal battles, the Florida Supreme Court had the nal say on a 2003 law limiting damages in medicalmalpractice lawsuits. It was unconstitutional, the justices said in a 5-2 ruling. The court sided with the family of a Panhandle woman who died of complications after giving birth. In doing so, justices also sided indirectly with plaintiffs lawyers who have ercely opposed limits on so-called non-economic damages. Physicians and insurance companies, who have made a priority of reining in medicalmalpractice lawsuits, came out the losers. At the present time, the cap on non-economic damages serves no purpose other than to arbitrarily punish the most grievously injured or their surviving family members, Justice R. Fred Lewis wrote. The two most conservative justices dissented. This court has previously recognized the existence of a medical malpractice insurance crisis as a legitimate state interest, Chief Justice Ricky Polston wrote. Further, it is undisputed that increasing the quality, availability, and affordability of health care for Floridians is a legitimate state interest. And the Legislatures policy choice of enacting a cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases is rationally related to these state interests. The ruling stemmed from the February 2006 death of 20-year-old Michelle McCall, who gave birth to a son at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center but died days later because of complications from severe bleeding. Republicans, who have often warred with the trial bar over the years and pushed the caps through the Legislature in 2003, were predictably upset by Thursdays decision. Disappointing, as usual, from them, Senate Rules Chairman John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, said when asked about the justices ruling. But well see what we have to do to address it. It wasnt clear whether or how lawmakers would attempt to overturn the courts decision through legislation during the current session. But no one was ruling it out yet.JOLLY IS JOLLY AS SINK SINKSWhile much of the states political and business establishment had been focused on the legislative session underway in Tallahassee, the national media and a handful of bigmoney groups were zeroing in on another corner of the state: Pinellas County, where Sink was attempting a comeback and Jolly was looking to move from K Street to the U.S. Capitol. In the end, Jolly won the contentious and expensive special election on Tuesday to replace his former boss, the late Republican Congressman C.W. Bill Young. The swingy district, which Young and President Barack Obama both won in 2008 and 2012, was monitored by strategists and analysts looking for tea leaves about the November elections that will decide who controls Congress during Obamas last two years in of ce.MO MONEY, MO TAX CUTSAt a Wednesday meeting in an obscure corner of the Knott Building, state economists huddled and predicted that the state would take in about $150 million more over the next 16 months than current estimates called for. It didnt take long for House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, to decide where the money would go. Obviously, a lot of its going to be spent on tax cuts, he told reporters. Lawmakers had already set a goal of $500 million in reductions in taxes and fees, following a benchmark set by Gov. Rick Scott last year. That overall number isnt likely to change even with the new revenue gures, but it does give lawmakers more wiggle room. On Thursday, the Senate Appropriations Committee unanimously amended a proposal (SB 156) by Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, to reduce the vehicle registration fees. Under the revised proposal, motorists would potentially save between $20 and $25 per vehicle registration, depending on the size of the vehicle. The reduction would collectively save motorists about $309 million during the upcoming 2014-15 budget year, with the new rates going into effect Sept. 1, and about $395 million the following scal year, when they would be in effect for the full 12 months starting July 1. A similar House proposal (PCB 14-04) was unanimously backed Thursday by the House Finance and Tax Subcommittee, even as Democrats complained the reduction was more about getting Scott re-elected than scal policy. STORY OF THE WEEK: Former Gov. Reubin Askew, one of the most important gures in state history, died at the age of 85. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Im waiting on the day when somebody gets indicted on the Thursday before the election, and they get elected because everybodys already voted and they cant get their ballot back. Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, on the dangers of voting by mail. HOME COUNTRYThe Shakespeare of ODontal Dental -Janet By SLIM RANDLESHerb walked into ODontal Dental the other day, holding his hand against a swollen face. He hadnt even made an appointment to see Perry rst, and it became obvious why he hadnt. Good morning, Herb, said Andrea, the receptionist. What can we do for you today? Mmfft Crullit! Certainly. Have a seat and Ill let Perry know youre here. In less than a minute, Dr. ODontal had Herb seated, numbed, and ready for work. Herbs labored breathing had returned to normal, even if his speech patterns hadnt. At what o the clock did the in iction attack, good sirrah? Lfftent mmst, said Herb. You shouldve used the phone to let me know, Herb. Oh, thats right. What was I thinking? Well, youre here now, lets see what we can do. Wonk oo. Youre welcome. Open wide. Little more. Cast open the gates, Leander! Let us gaze upon the source of woe! Perry worked his way through dental school as a Shakespearean actor, and didnt make it out of there unfazed. Aha, brothers of mine on this eld of battle today, I glimpse with fearful eye the seat of our alarm. Its a tooth, by Cuspid! Perry dove into the fray with drill and pick. Snicker-snick! GRRRR and ll. Rinse and spit. And so, Leander, take these, the pills that weave up the raveled sleeve of pain. Do so in remembrance of this day, this meeting, this sceptered isle of dental chair. Those who werent here with us this day will forever cast envious eyes upon us, for they will say this was our nest hour, the culmination of drill and yawn the grinding and lling of fang for fun and profit. Arise, sweet prince, and ful ll your destiny! Its almost worth getting a toothache. Brought to you by Home Country (the book). See it at HYPERLINK http:// www.nmsantos.com www.nmsantos.com.

The cold winter of 2013-14 aside, Wakulla Countys newest invasive pest is already emerging from its winter nap. The kudzu bug is currently active near concentrations of the invasive weed kudzu where it overwinters. This pest was initially found in the Sopchoppy area in May 2013 populating a citrus tree. It was the first documented occurrence of this nuisance insect in Wakulla County. Kudzu bugs are native to East Asia and were rst detected in northeastern Georgia in October 2009. They eat kudzu and a number of other plants, especially legumes like peas, beans, and clover. Individually this destructive invader is easy to overlook as they are about the size of a ladybug. Unlike ladybugs they often appear in swarms of 1,000 or more, many times on the exterior of light colored structures during early daylight hours. They gather in the shaded portion of structures regardless of color later in the day. The kudzu bug is a stinkbug which secretes a foul odor and is capable of staining a variety of surfaces. If they enter a home the upholstery, carpets and drapes may be marred by this pest. The defensive chemical these insects use is capable of staining the natural or treated surface of the houses and buildings, and will even mar vehicle nishes. Their olive green to brownish color helps individuals blend into any native landscape. They are excellent hitchhikers which will cling to people and vehicles moving through an infested area. They are also good fliers and can travel long distances. Research has indicated its introduction into the United States occurred from a single female lineage originating in Japan. They have quickly established reproducing populations and spread throughout Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, and moved into Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi and Virginia. In addition to legumes, they are attracted to a host of ornamental shrubs and native plants. With no known predators in the north Florida, the potential impact on native plants is in question. There is also serious concern these exotic pest will be one more recently imported impediment to production of cotton and soybean in the Big Bend Region. They are particularly active in the spring when exploring the variety of emerging plants before kudzu leafs out. They are also seen in swarms during autumn eating their last meal before overwintering. In late autumn, with cooler temperatures, they migrate from their host plants to overwinter in kudzu leaf litter, underneath tree bark and in other protected locations. In its native habitat, there are up to three generations of these pests per year. In the warmer latitudes of Wakulla County, the reproduction rate may exceed the recorded rate in Asia. Any pyrethroid based insecticide applied directly to the bugs will kill them. Also, liquid Sevin (carbaryl), which has a longer residual effect, will also work at controlling the population. Unfortunately, the bugs mobility and their overwhelming numbers make them dif cult to control.
