The seat is currently held by Ray Gray, who has not formally announced his intent on whether he will seek re-election. In addition to Brock, George Begley has also led to run. Brock has been a resident of Wakulla Station for some 40 years,and said she is running on her own merits, and not running against anybody. She noted that a school board member has two constitutional responsibilities: to pass a budget, and to provide policy. Brock said she felt a third responsibility is to be accessible and available to citizens parents, teachers, and students. I am an extremely friendly, outgoing person and I am completely committed to the idea of being accessible, she said. Brock is a librarian, and is currently the library branch manager in Woodville. Her four children have been through the Wakulla school system, and Brock said she is very proud of the local public schools. I think public schools have made us one of the strongest countries in the world, Brock said. My grandchildren are preparing to enter school, she said, noting that continuing the tradition of Wakulla schools providing excellent education for children. The current school board and superintendent are facing some real budget challenges, but also facing a challenge with the implementation of Common Core. The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an education initiative that details what K-12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. Brock contends that, with the Common Core Standards, there will be a way for states to compare their educational effectiveness that is at least comparing apples to apples, not apples to oranges. Its a good place to start, she said. At the same time, she said, Education has to be more than rote testing and training.... I would like to see educational policy nationally and locally Id like to see it more directed at helping children nd their personal gifts and develop those whatever those might be.Turn to Page 15AVerna Brock is running for school board, district 1By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netMotherhood is not limited to esh and blood. Motherhood sometimes means stepping up to help biological moms in crisis. This weekend Crawfordville resident Quinika Jackson will celebrate her first Mothers Day as a foster mom to two little ones a brother and sister, ages 2 and 3. Jackson, who has no children of her own, made the decision to open her life and home as a licensed fosterto-adopt parent last June. I always wanted to give back to the community and help kids that were in need, Jackson said. Childrens Home Society of Florida reports there are currently eight foster families in Wakulla County, and two new prospective families that are in the process of becoming foster parents. While Jackson does not know how long the two beautiful, browneyed youngsters will be with her, she lives and loves as if they shared her genes. After doing personal research about foster parenting, Jackson said she called Childrens Home Society to nd out what requirements were needed to become a foster parent. Along with an information packet, CHS ordered her to take a MAPP (Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting) training class. Because MAPP training classes werent offered in the area at the time, Jackson traveled to Jefferson County for foster parent education courses. I was so eager to get started, Jackson said. After a home inspection and background checks, a long list of requirements had to be ful lled before Jackson was licensed. She needed to purchase a crib, clothes, car seats, carriers and more.

WILLIAM SNOWDENSchool Board candidate Verna Brock. Wetlands amendment foundersBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netDialogue concerning wetlands continued at the Wakulla County Board of Commissioners meeting on May 5, as the public weighed in on Commissioner Randy Merritts amendment of the embattled wetlands ordinance. Voters will still have an opportunity to vote on the wetlands ordinance in November. Merritt said that on the advice of the county attorney, he believes repealing the ordinance before the referendum will expose the county to a potential increased risk of lawsuits. He presented an amendment that carries the ordinance to the date of the referendum. If the ordinance was repealed and buffer zones eliminated now, land owners might build within that zone. If the referendum passes and the buffer zones are reinstated, those land owners could sue the county. If we get rid of rule, and reinstate it, you have a better case to sue the county, Merritt said. Thats my point. Lets make it effective the day the referendum fails, so theres no gap, making the case safer to avoid liability. Wakulla Wetlands Alliance Chairman Victor Lambou said there is always a risk of a lawsuit with anything. Turn to Page 15AWould have made repeal e ective on date of referendum

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netPastors and community members gathered for prayer and song as they observed the National Day of Prayer at the Sopchoppy City Hall on May 1. The Rev. Kevin Hall, pastor at United Methodist Churches in Sopchoppy and Ochlockonee Bay, led the pledge to the American and Christian ags and an invocation. He prayed that as groups across the country gathered to pray, hearts of stone would be melted into hearts of esh. Randy Anderson, minister of music at Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church, led a song service. He started off with patriotic favorites, like This Land is Your Land, and This is My County. He transitioned into God Bless America and God is So Good. The Rev. Bruce Taylor of Mount Beasor Primitive Baptist Church thanked the City of Sopchoppy for allowing use of their space for the National Day of Prayer. He went on to pray for leaders in national of ces to city seats. Pray for our leaders, he said. You dont have to support their policies or beliefs, but you do need to support them. We are all created in the image of God and his likeness. Pray for our leaders, especially Barack Obama, our president. I didnt vote for him, but I will pray for him. Taylor went on to pray for congressional leaders in Washington, D.C., Gov. Rick Scott, state representatives and senators, county commissioners, Sopchopy city commissioners, and leaders in Wakulla Countys churches. Change in America has to come from the pulpits of America, he said. He said the failure of America should not be blamed on political leaders. The failure of America can be directed to the failure of the church to evangelize, Taylor said. Instead, we compromise. The Rev. John Dunning, pastor at Spirit Life Church of Sopchoppy, moderated the event. Every day should be a national day of prayer for our leaders, Dunning said. The Rev. Bill Jenkins of Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church talked about families and youth. What are you contributing to future generations? he asked. What kind of legacy are we leaving? Jenkins said younger generations should know God on a rst-hand basis and that faith should be lived out and perpetuated in the home. The Rev. Robert Jetton of Sopchoppy Congregational Holiness Church shared his personal experiences with common vices, and talked about ministering to prisoners. God saved me, and the trash came out, Jetton said. The only way God is limited is when we turn our backs. The Rev. Gordon Beal, pastor of Mount Elon Baptist Church, delivered a message of revival and prayer. I truly think people have the wrong concept of revival, Beal said. (They think) revival is for sinners and the world. But revival wont come to sinners and the world until it comes to the church. There has to be an awakening in the church body, before it goes into the world.

CHAT Vice President Petra Shuff said from a nancial standpoint, Pamper Your Pooch on May 3 was the most successful event yet. We seemed to have more dogs to wash, and a few more microchips than usual, Shuff said. Sixteen CHAT volunteers spent the day clipping nails, giving bubble baths, applying ea and tick treatments, snapping glamour shots and more, all to bene t the Meals on Wheels pets, drug costs for the Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program, and educational materials. Crawfordville resident Becky Moore brought her little dog Reaux for a spa day at the park. We like to come out and support CHAT, Moore said. We always try to make it every year. Shuff said several people brought more than one dog, and one guest brought four dogs. Some were CHAT supporters and members, but there were a lot of new people too, she said. Thats encouraging. Political candidates stopped by, and some even rolled up their sleeves to wash and dry the critters. County commission candidate Steve Cusman stayed through the whole day. And Sheriff Charlie Creel spent some time at the event too, Shuff said. The next Pamper Your Pooch event will be in October. Another round of TNR is coming up on May 18. Volunteers are welcome.

From Front PageJust like youre having your own child, Jackson said. My mom and ance helped me a lot. They also had to get ngerprinted, along with anyone else who is a frequent visitor to the home. A week after being licensed, Jackson said her phone started ringing. I thought it would be a little while before placement came calling, she said. I didnt start accepting kids right away, because I was nervous. I prayed on it, asked God, when its the right time, let me know. Finally, the call came that changed Jacksons life. She knew it was the right time. I saw the CHS number pop up on my phone, and I got so nervous, Jackson said. They said, We have a placement for you its two! Their ages were 1 and 2 at the time. So I talked with ance and decided to go ahead and do it. But before Jackson and her ance could gather the children, they had to stop at Walmart for another car seat. MEETING HER NEW FOSTER CHILDRENJackson said she had an opportunity to meet the childrens biological mother, who was a woman in crisis, homeless and suffering in unfortunate circumstances. She wanted to meet us and see who her kids were going to be with, Jackson said. I was very nervous, being that it was my first placement, and meeting the mom right then and there. We didnt know what type of feelings she would have toward us. But, we met her, exchanged contact information and took whatever clothes she had for the kids. It was emotional for her, since her kids were being taken away from her. She didnt cry, but you could look at her face and know she was thinking, OK, whats next my kids are being taken from me. Jackson said she expected hurt reactions from the children over the loss of their mom. They cried their hearts out, but after that day, we havent had anything like that, Jackson said. In fact, Jackson said it was remarkable how quickly they bonded with her and her ance. She told the kids they could call her Q or Mommy Q, but mommy was the most natural noun for them. The first day we picked them up from school, you would think that these kids knew us, Jackson said. They started right away calling me mom, and my ance daddy. They had open arms. So, we came home, cooked dinner, took a bath, and went straight to bed like it was nothing. Jackson said she did have to go out the next day and purchase clothes that were more appropriate for school. The state Department of Children and Families did provide me a subsidy to buy things that I would need right away, Jackson said. That helped out a lot.SPECIAL TIME WITH GRANDMALike any grandma, Jacksons mother plays a big role in the childrens lives. My mom was very excited about me doing foster care, Jackson said. When I got these two, she fell in love with them right away. She treats them as if they are her own grandkids. She is constantly buying. On weekends I am off, she goes with me to pick them up from daycare. If (foster daughter) had a good day at school, she knows she gets surprises from grandma. But no good report no surprise. She loves to stay with my mom free time to stay up late, watch TV and run free. My mom spoils her. Jackson said her foster son is more attached to her and her ance. The little guy is overcoming developmental delays after having ear tubes inserted. He was constantly having ear infections, Jackson said. He couldnt hear at all, but after he came out of anesthesia, he was just non-stop talking. He could hear everything we were saying, and he was constantly repeating. He still has a long way to go, but he has come a very long way too. Before the surgery, Jackson said constant trips to the doctor were wearing her down, like it would any mother, biological or not. But eventually I got used to it, because no one else is going to do it, Jackson said. Thats what Im for. DISCIPLINE AND SCHEDULINGJackson was like a mama duck to water when it comes to discipline. Authoritative verbal communication and time-outs are effective at her house. The children also have superb manners, saying yes, maam and no, maam, please and thank you and excuse me when needing to interrupt or leave the dinner table. Scheduling is vital to running a peaceful home, Jackson said. She works long hours as an of cer at the Leon County Jail in booking and releasing. Her ance is an educator in Gadsden County. Managing family time takes careful budgeting. I learned I need to iron clothes for the whole week, and have dinner already prepped on work days, Jackson said. As time has gone by, its become easier. If I did not have support of my mom or fiance, I think it would be much harder, especially for a single person. I just get up everyday and prepare myself. Im in this. This is what I signed up for. Go with it.REWARDS AND CHALLENGESJackson said the most rewarding aspect of the experience is seeing the kids happy. Its rewarding seeing the smiles on their faces, and knowing that they are getting all the love, and then some, that they can get. I always tell my story about doing foster care, and people say that I treat them like theyre my own. They get so attached to you, and you get so attached to them. Yes, they are my babies. You want to do everything as if they are your biological children. But that reward subsists with a painful reality too. Jackson acknowledged that uni cation of the children and their mother or relatives is very likely. My case worker asked how I will react, Jackson said. But every day Im preparing myself for them to reunite with their mother as if it was tomorrow, so I wont be so emotional when the time comes. Right now, their mom is doing what she needs to do to get them back, and were hoping she stays on the right track. Maria Goodman, who is a family service coordinator for the CHS Early Steps program, said Jackson is a successful foster mom because she is naturally nurturing. She has such an amazing capacity with love and dedication to children in her care, Goodman said. You can see it in her face, in her eyes and demeanor. Have you seen her schedule? Shes just amazing. DO YOU WANT TO BE A FOSTER PARENT?To find out more about becoming a foster parent, visit the Childrens Home Services foster website at: www.chs .org/fostercare. The local number is (850) 219-4235. If and when her foster children are reunited with their family and other siblings, Jackson said she is ready and willing to take on more children. At first I said I wanted to take a break for a month or two, but yes, I will do it again, Jackson said. Im hoping for a baby the next time. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. TALLAHASSEE, May 6 State lawmakers came into the 2014 session with a surplus topping $1 billion and a mandate from Gov. Rick Scott to cut $500 million in taxes and fees. On Friday, May 2. the lawmakers handed Scott a $77.1 billion budget, the largest spending plan in state history. But while much of the money went to must-have programs such as education, health care and prisons, smaller items are littered through the more-than400-page document (HB 5001). Wakulla scored some water projects: As a boost to ecotourism, lawmakers want to make it easier for people to ride the waters of Wakulla County in Floridas Big Bend region. The budget includes $525,000 to develop canoe and kayak launches along public trails, $1 million for work on the St. Marks municipal dock and $735,000 for the Shell Point public-access boat launch facility.

The weather was bright and clear, the music uplifting and the fellowship charged with the Spirit of God. Over the course of the day, more than 400 people joined us in the park in Sopchoppy. It would be impossible to acknowledge all the churches, business and individuals that contributed to making this years event a success. Needless to say our heartfelt appreciation goes out to all who contributed their time, prayers, gifts and most importantly those that took time from their day to fellowship with us. As in past years we collected food for local food banks and maternity supplies for the Wakulla Pregnancy Center. Planners are already working on next years event and would like to encourage churches, businesses and individuals to get involved. For more information, email the planning committee at jesusriverfestival@live.com. Nathan Lewis Sopchoppy Because of incorrect information submitted to The News, last weeks Taking Care of Business contained inaccurate contact information for Business Women of Wakulla, which should have appeared as Gena Green, 268 Whiddon Lake Road, Crawfordville FL 32327. Phone: 926-3689. We regret the error.CorrectionEditor, The News: Who remembers Al Gore predicting the end of times in 2004? Global warming was all the rage with the liberal ideologue democrats. The polar caps were due to melt any day. By 2010, poor Al was nowhere to be seen after consecutive years of global freezing. The last environmental wacko to launch a nautical expedition to Antarctica (2012) to document the melting ice was trapped in freezing waters and had to be rescued. What a hoot. Not to be outdone, the wily liberals changed their campaign to climate change wherein all change in the weather had to be caused by man. The liberal Democrats excel at telling others how to live, eat and die. Telling the general population to ride bikes instead of cars, turn the heat off in the winter, air conditioning off in summer while they y around in diesel powered private jets and live in luxury. Needless to say a small contingent of Al Gores disbanded army have migrated south to Wakulla County where they have gone door-to-door with their apocalyptic vision, misinforming the honest, hard working people here to gather their required doomsday petition signatures. The facts are this: Over 98 percent of the pollutants found in our basin are from Tallahassee and Leon County. Imposing wetland restrictions on the sensible citizens in Wakulla County will NOT help them. However, over regulation and the carbon tax which is soon to follow if the citizens allow it will certainly further reduce our countys ability to generate jobs and improve the local economy. If you need any proof just look at the results of six years of Barry Obamas policies of over regulation and increased taxation. Food stamps anyone? Remember what President Ronald Wilson Reagan said about government, The most frightening thing you can hear is a knock at your door and someone saying, Im from the government and Im here to help. Im sure Carmen Sturchio (You cant eat money, Opinion Page, May 1 issue) will be in Al Gores next fairytale movie. Our commissioners have done the responsible thing in rejecting this infringement on property rights. Please vote for common sense and vote NO on the wetlands ordinance. Timothy Caldwell Panacea By KEVIN VAUGHNChamber PresidentAs president of the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce, one of my goals for 2014 is for us to generate net growth in number of members. We will achieve our goal through a combination of retention of existing members and attraction of new members. Sounds pretty simple, right? All it takes is spreading the word about the value we provide to our members and prospective members. Thats where we need your help. Our Chamber is extremely active in our community and quietly moves our mission forward year after year. From serving on the Charter Review Advisory Board to providing a business perspective on the new Sign Ordinance, your Chamber is always there. We also have a dedicated group of members who focus on Economic Development opportunities. Successful Economic Development requires that we maintain a business friendly environment that attracts new capital to our county. More Capital Investment translates to more jobs. More jobs means more opportunity for our local businesses to prosper. This requires that we showcase three key items. The rst is available locations in the area. Secondly, employers want to know we have a workforce available to ll their needs. The nal component is nancial incentives. As one of the RACEC counties, we qualify for most State incentives without the need for a county match. Your Chamber continues to promote its members through ribbon cuttings, networking events and promotion through partnership with The Wakulla News to name a few. We also provide a number of educational opportunities to help you get the latest information available on various timely topics that impact your business. If youre not already a member or if you know someone thats not currently a member, please check out our website at wakullacountychamber.com where youll nd more information and a membership application. Join us today so you can discover and experience the tremendous value Chamber membership provides you and your business. Kevin Vaughn is president of the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce.Editor, The News: Some occasions require a shout out and this is one of those. As a resident of the area I am honored to be a volunteer in two very important local events. Last weekend Rock the Dock brought around 550 participants to Rock Landing for a fishing tournament that brought folks as far north as Tennessee and south Florida as well. We sold T-shirts, raf e tickets and beer and food. Every catch was acknowledged on stage; women, children, and kayakers were entered in great raf es. Tournament sh unclaimed are donated to local charities. Vendors who donated also participated. This weekend featured the Blue Crab festival at Panaceas Woolley Park and again I was privileged to participate. Games, raf es, prizes, booths and vendors share our special avor with tourists from near and far. What a way to bring tourism to us-to bring goodwill and lots of fun. All proceeds of these fantastic events go back into the community in the form of waterfront improvements. Thanks to the organizers, our corps of volunteers, the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce, and all our community partners for all their time and efforts and for giving back to our local community. Mary Tollefsen Ochlockonee BayEditor, The News: The Board of Directors of Sustainable Big Bend would like to thank all who participated in making the Green Living Expo a resounding success. Many people and businesses are acknowledged in our thank you ad in this issue. However, we want to thank The Wakulla News in particular for its generous sponsorship and support of the Green Living Expo. We encourage other community organizations with upcoming events to avail themselves of the professional services of Lynda Kinsey and Eric Stanton. They will develop an advertising plan and create a series of ads promoting your event for a fee that is much lower than the cost of placing individual ads (even at buy one, get one free prices). They do this to support local not-for-pro ts and serve our community. In addition, we would like to thank Editor Bill Snowden and reporter Nicole Zema for publishing many of the articles we wrote and submitted to The Wakulla News prior to the event. Lastly, we thank reporter Zema for attending our event, asking many thoughtful questions, and writing an excellent article in last weeks edition of the paper. We are fortunate to have this wonderful resource in our county. Despite an extremely small staff, The Wakulla News does an excellent job of covering the many events and activities in our sprawling county. People can help our small local paper continue their vital role by being citizen reporters and writing and submitting articles and photos about events and other news that you would like to see publicized. The Wakulla News is truly our countys source for local news and information. Sincerely, Sustainable Big Bend Board of Directors Crawfordville Editor, The News: I would like to thank the active of cers and board members of Sustainable Big Bend Kathyrn Gibson, Sandy Cook, Toni Livingston, and Shelley Swenson for their vision, passion, and tireless commitment to promoting sustainable living in our region. I also thank other members of the Green Living Expo Planning Committee Leah Bowman, Madeleine Carr, and Jeannie Brodhead for their enthusiasm and the considerable energy they expended to help plan the many activities and offerings at the Green Living Expo. These are among the most knowledgeable, creative, giving, and just plain wonderful women I know. It was my honor and privilege to work with these outstanding volunteers these past few months. Sincerely, Lynn Artz Medart Editor, The News:Some Talquin Electric members have experienced scam calls pretending to be from Talquin Electric and demanding payment over the phone. One such call came in on an 800 number and informed the member that they had a balance on their account and needed to pay it now or the service would be disconnected. Talquin Electric will not call our members and demand immediate payment on a utility bill. If you receive a call like this, please report it to Talquin and the proper authorities. Never give your credit card or bank information to a party that has called you. Kim Gay Media Communications Manager Talquin Electric Editors note: We also received calls this week saying scammers were calling and identifying themselves as being with Duke Energy and would cut off power for non-payment. Those calls alleged to be from Duke Energy were reportedly coming from (818) 8137558. Be careful.

SNYDER Another year has gone by and I nd myself facing the same quandary I faced last year. Many people complain about how fast things are changing, I complain about those things that do not change at all. Interestingly, the things you want to change refuse to do so and the things you want to stay the same never do. I wish someone would figure out how to reverse this tedious trend of life. I am referring to the annual Mothers Day card fetish. I am not sure where this started or why, but I have my suspicions. I think we can safely rule out husbands and men as suspects. I could see a man doing it one year, but to do it year after year is not within the scope of a mans ability. If a man does something one time and it is successful, he never chances doing it the second time when it may be a failure. Now we have on our hands tremendous pressure to purchase a yearly Mothers Day card. When it comes to card buying, I simply do not know where to go. Oh, I know where to get them; I simply do not know which one to purchase. If it was up to me, and let me point out very quickly, it is not, I would have one card for sale each year. Maybe I would modify the card each year and perhaps write something different in it, but how many ways can you say Happy Mothers Day? As it stands (and I wish it would sit down and rest for a while), there are more Mothers Day cards than stars in the heavens. It is virtually impossible to pick out the right Mothers Day card. Since I do not keep up with the latest trends in this regard I am at quite a disadvantage. One year I tried to remedy my Mothers Day card-buying dilemma by buying a box of 50 cards that were on sale right after Mothers Day. I thought I had hit the mother lode, so to speak. With this purchase, I had enough Mothers Day cards to last my entire lifetime. Unless, of course, I live to be 129. This lasted for two years. The rst year I presented my Mothers Day card to my wife and she gave me all kinds of smiles and hugs. I was relieved to have solved a big problem in my home. I now could rest and focus on solving other problems in my life, of which there are many. It was the second year that kicked me in the teeth. As usual, that year, I presented my wife with her Mothers Day card. Trust me, I was not fully geared up for the response I got. I was expecting smiles and hugs like the year before. What I got was a glare and a shrug. She looked at me and said something I shall never forget. Isnt this the same card you gave me last year? How do wives remember these things? The only reason I knew it was the same card as last year is I had more just like it in the box it came from. To have a problem unsolved is a very nerveracking experience, to be sure. Now I must go back and start the whole Mothers Day card buying process over again. This brings me to the second part of my quandary. When did it become necessary for husbands to buy their wives Mothers Day cards? Sure, she washes my clothes, cooks my meals and bosses me about. She still is not my mother. When the children start coming into the home it is quite natural, because they are too young to make such important decisions, for the father to buy the Mothers Day card on behalf of the children. I still remember that rst Mothers Day card. Our rst baby was only seven months old and had no idea what was going on in the world or even in the home. I gave my wife her rst Mothers Day card. She was so excited. Because she was excited, so was I. This is where the whole nonsense starts. What I want to know is when do husbands stop buying Mothers Day cards for their wives? The last child in our home left more than 15 years ago and still I nd myself under the awesome pressure of purchasing a Mothers Day card for my wife. When do the children take control of this yearly responsibility? In spite of my quandary, it is important to honor both fathers and mothers. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the rst commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:2-3). Would anybody want to buy a box of 48 Mothers Day cards, cheap?.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

I received a call for help from a dear friend, whose mother had just passed away. I am a funeral director, and helping others when they are hurt to their core, when waking and functioning are more than they can bear, and when their lives have become bitterly painful, gives me great satisfaction. I immediately drove my hearse over to my friends house, which is just down the street from my own, and sat with her, holding her hand as she called and noti ed her family of their great loss. My friend is a brave woman. She is a therapist; her job is to help others heal. Healing others comes naturally to her, and she is great at it. She nds the good in people and helps them draw upon their inner strength for recovery. She is an amazing woman. As I sat there, beside her, holding her hand, I felt her breath quiver and her hand tremble ever so slightly. I knew I was witnessing the courage of a healer, mustering all of the valor she held in reserve, for this most dreaded and grievous moment. She had just lost her mother, yet she was nurturing and comforting her own adult children through the heart wrenching realization of losing their beloved grandmother. It was a profound moment for me, because I saw her mothers matriarchal mantel pass onto her own capable shoulders. Preparing my friends mother for burial was an honor. I could see the ravages of her illness on her tiny body. I also saw the care and love my friend had rendered her mother, over the long and painful course of her disease. As brutal as Alzheimers is on ones mind, it is likewise brutal on ones body. The years and months of confusion can be debilitating and dangerous on the patient, as well as their family. My friend had taken such loving care of her mother, that the usual physical signs of prolonged dying were absent from her mothers tiny body. My friend brought her mothers clothing to me and along with the beautiful dress that her mother would wear when being laid to rest, was a pair of the loveliest stiletto heels. My friend had taken such meticulous care of her mother, that even her feet were beautifully manicured and in perfect health. My husband lifted my friends mother in his arms, and cradled her as he carried her to her casket. When she lay there, I looked at her and thought, what a wonderful mother she must have been to have raised such an outstanding daughter. One who would become a healer and care for her in her nal days. Last week was a great week for me. I served a dear friend at the loss of her beloved mother. My reward was being able to witness the best in humanity at the most painful moment in life, the death of a treasured loved one. I love my friend. I pray for her recovery, and I give thanks for my privilege in knowing her and serving her..Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer.

This award is given to honor a nurse who has made a signi cant contribution to the Big Bend Hospice nursing practice each year. Nominated by her supervisor, Tinu Agboola, Sandy was recognized for her diligence, problem-solving, and compassion to patients and families. Sandy Klein has been a dedicated employee of Big Bend Hospice for more than seven years. As a hospice triage nurse, she often interacts with patients and families when they are facing one of the most dif cult times in their lives. She has a reputation of being an expert in crisis management. When families call Big Bend Hospice and are panicked due to lack of understanding or for other reasons, Sandys experience and guidance, ensuring proper communication with physicians, vendor, or facilities, prove to be the perfect combination for the best solution. Her goal is to make sure that the patient/family is satis ed and that the mission of Big Bend Hospice is attained. Team player is another word used quite often by Sandys coworkers when describing her role at Big Bend Hospice. During the holidays and weekends when many people are at home with families and loved ones, Sandy offers to cover the unit so others can have the time off. Her desire for excellence drives her to ensure someone is available 24/7 to answer the telephone when/if a family calls. Big Bend Hospice does not use an answering service. All calls are answered by staff, day or night, thanks to Sandys commitment to quality customer service. The Award for Nursing Excellence is given in honor of Carol Pluchina Gaeta-Jaffee. Carol worked her entire professional life as a registered nurse. Carol moved to Tallahassee in March 1993 to begin work as a Big Bend Hospice nurse. After being injured in a car accident she was unable to work again and retired from nursing. Carol died in Hospice House in September 2004 after a long struggle with Cattlemans disease, a little known disorder of the lymphatic system. Her husband, Reid Jaffe, honors her memory with this award each year through Big Bend Hospice. Jaffe surprised Sandy at the Big Bend Hospice staff meeting in February by presenting the award in person. Sandy makes everyone around her better at what they do by just being an example of calmness and professionalism, says Agboola. She has the ability to look at a very complicated situation, go to the heart of it, cutting through the unneeded peripheral emotions, and providing the best care to our patients.Sandy Klein receives nursing excellence award SPECIAL TO THE NEWSNurse Sandy Klein with Reid Jaffe.

By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netA young goliath grouper in Panacea needs a name, and a bigger tank. Directors of the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab are counting on the publics help with both on Sunday, May 18. The lab and aquarium is hosting its fth annual bene t event, Sharks & Chablis, on from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 222 Clark Drive in Panacea. The event will also celebrate the aquariums 50th birthday. Cypress Rudloe, executive director of the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, said proceeds raised at the event will be used for construction of a home for the labs goliath grouper. Not only does the grouper need a tank it needs a name. Guests can purchase tickets to suggest names, and one will be drawn to name the grouper. The soon-to-be massive sh is a vital part of the reef ecosystem on Wakulla Countys coastline. We are going to need a big enough tank to house him, Rudloe said. Hes basically a foot long right now, and will grow to be about 800 pounds, and 5 to 6 feet long. The goliath grouper is one of the top predators of the reef. It is considered an apex predator, which is crucial to the ecosystem because it monitors all populations of sh on the reef, so not one individual species population will explode. They are very important to the biodiversity of reefs offshore. Rudloe said Sharks & Chablis is open to individuals and families. Tickets can be purchased in advance, or at the gate. Sammy Tedder and Rick Ott will perform live. There will also be a performance and exhibition by a band that makes instruments out of found materials. The street party also features seafood by the Seineyard Seafood Restaurant, Barefoot Wines and craft beer, silent auction and guided tours of the aquarium. Exhibitors add to the fun with live birds and reptiles, wilderness awareness and unique photo ops. Rudloe said the Chehaw Zoo out of Albany Ga., is bringing down different animals, and will entertain and educate with an interactive program on stage with critters including hawks, lemurs and other safari-type animals. Guests who arent squeamish can check out a venous snake display, featuring snake species in north Florida. The Florida Wild Mammal Association will also participate. To buy tickets or make a donation, visit www.gulfspecimen.org/sharksand-chablis. Or call (850)984-5297. To learn more about the work being done at GSML, visit www.gulfspecimen.org.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 9AI have recently become interested in nutrition which plays an important role not only for us but for our dearly loved family members (pets) Part of my excitement regarding nutrition is due to my recent trip to Topeka, Kansas. Hills Pet Nutrition, the makers of Science Diet, invited me to Kansas for a three day tour and conference trip. We toured their Pet Nutrition Center which is where they house many dogs and cats that go through their product feeding tests. It was truly like a Disney World for pets. Nutrition is truly important and there are three main life stages of your pet: the puppy/kitten stage, adulthood stage and senior stage. When a puppy or kitten is less than a year old, its important that they receive a properly balanced diet which will promote growth and development. After a year, they can be transitioned to an adult food which will balance vitamins and minerals, and contain a less amount of fat and calories. Once they reach the age of seven, they are considered to be in the senior stage of life and would bene t with a senior type diet. Usually a senior diet will contain a less amount of phosphorus, protein, sodium and calcium. All of these nutritional needs in excess could lead to heart and kidney conditions. Thankfully, there are good pet foods out there and a lot of information can be obtained by reading the bag. The Association of American Feeding Control Of cials (AAFCO) is a government agency that regulates and sets nutritional standards for pet foods. An AAFCO statement is a legal document that must be printed on every bag in order to be sold and contains two key pieces of information. First, it will tell you if that pet food has been tested or formulated. For example, if the label states that Brand X cat food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels this means that chemical analysis has been done on the food to measure the nutrients it contains. However, nutrients arent always digestible to your pet. If the label states that, Animal feeding tests substantiate that Brand Y cat food is balanced then this means that the food was actually fed to dogs in a series of tests and thus determined to be a quality product. The second thing the AAFCO statement will tell you is what life stage the food is balanced for. This includes growth, reproduction, adult maintenance or for all life stages. Unfortunately, there is not a stage concerning our senior pets at this time so your veterinarian can point you in the right direction as to the proper diet selection. Typically, staying away from an all life stage food is best because this claims that you could feed a four month old puppy the same food even when your pet is 10 years of age. That doesnt seem right, does it? Besides the AAFCO statement, you can also nd a daily feeding guide which will tell you exactly the amount you need to feed your pet according to their weight. However, this feeding guide doesnt always take into consideration if a pet is spayed, neutered, or obese prone. It is important to take into fact if your pet is spayed or neutered because their energy requirement decreases and they do not need as much food as the feeding guide claims. Thankfully, there is also a way to calculate your pets DER (daily energy requirement) in regards to their activity and life styles. Unfortunately, obesity in pets is on the rise and a lot of times it can be prevented with proper nutrition. Obesity can lead to a shorter life expectancy, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer. Many times we do not realize how much treats can add more weight to our pets, but they also contain calories that can add up quickly. Overall, treats should equal no more than 10% of their total diet. It is important to realize that our pets are a lot smaller than us and for something we feel is a small treat can be way too much for our pets. For example, if you give a dog a hot dog, it is equivalent to a human eating three cheeseburgers. Or, if you give a cat an ounce of cheese, it is equivalent to a human eating three and a half cheeseburgers or four chocolate bars. Other acceptable treats that are low in calories for a pet (which surprisingly they enjoy) are carrots, green beans and apples. This is just a quick glance into proper pet nutrition and hopefully you realize how important it is to your pets health. I want my own pets to live a long and healthy life which is why I pay very close attention to what they eat. Just like us, nutrition has a large impact on our health so I hope you pay attention to your pets health also. Next time you take your pet in for a wellness visit, take your pets food bag with you and ask your veterinarian if it is the best choice for them.Tail Wagger News...JEANETTE BURDETTECert.

By Nicole Zemanzema@thewakullanews.netWhile many Wakulla High School upperclassmen spent Friday, April 25 picking up their tuxes, polishing their shoes, buying corsages, and gearing up for prom night, ve carpentry students donated their day to build a new deck and safer steps at a home in Sopchoppy. Kyle Alexander, Chad Deal, Eli Keeling, William Mobley and Ryan Carden sawed wood, schlepped boards and swung hammers to make a safer, more accessible entrance to Elizabeth Comstocks home on Surf Road. The work was organized through a partnership with Ability 1st and the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce. When do you get anything for free? asked Comstock, a former clerical assistant who has been living in the area since 2009. Im especially thankful because Im out of a job right now, so its nice to have this kind of service. A ramp was in the original plans, but since Comstock is not in a wheelchair, she said shorter stairs would suf ce. I wont have to climb the mountain anymore, Comstock said. It was tough to carry groceries up those steep steps. Ability 1st Access to Independence Program coordinates with professionals and community groups that volunteer time and resources to build wheelchair ramps (or safer stairs) for individuals in a six-county region. Ability 1st volunteer carpenter Eric Evans supervised the construction. Evans said Bruce Ashley and Mike Kemp from the sheriffs of ce helped to coordinate the students with the Center for Independent Living in Tallahassee to help Ms. Comstock. There is a big need for this in Wakulla County, Evans said. Our projects are massive because were in a ood zone. Everything is built to code and built to last as long as possible. Evans said Comstocks new steps will have a 4-to-5 inch riser, instead of the original steps 7-to-8 inch riser. The students were sweaty but happy as they carried out their construction tasks. Carden said besides his carpentry class, he has experience in construction helping his step dad and grandparents with different projects. Its lots of fun if you do it right, Carden said. I love helping people. Thats why Im joining the military. Mobley said besides gaining leadership and job skills from the construction task, he also had a spiritual motive. Im a Christian, so it makes me feel good to do something like this, Mobley said. Alexander said he was glad the weather wasnt too hot; as he mastered cutting angles with a skill saw. Deal added that he enjoyed doing the work for free, especially because it was helping Ms. Comstock. Keeling said he has experience in deconstruction, rebuilding, fencing and lathe work. I like to volunteer when I can, Keeling said. Anything to help out. Kevin Ogden is the Access to Independence program manager with Ability 1st. He said the organization builds ramps or half steps for low-income citizens who have issues with mobility and qualify for services. He said the organization also loans medical equipment such as crutches, canes, wheelchairs, hospital beds, power chairs and incontinent supplies to qualifying residents in the six-county area. Ability 1st has been helping needy residents of Wakulla County for 22 years, he said, and over time has partnered with groups like the WCSO. To inquire about assistance qualication, call Kevin Ogden at 850-5759621, ext. 106, or visit the website: www.ability1st.info. Those who wish to volunteer with building projects, or who wish to donate funds or medical equipment, may also call Ogden. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 11A Carpentry students lend a handPHOTOS/NICOLE ZEMATop left: Chad Deal cuts angles as Kyle Alexander holds the board.

JODY CAMPBELL After four days of torrential downpours, the weather turned out real nice, especially Sunday. The water from Live Oak Island west and from the St. Marks River east is as black as three day old coffee. In between there its not too terribly bad. Congratulations to the folks who put on the Rock the Dock Tournament. They had great weather, a good turnout and a lot of nice sh caught. In 2007 during the Saltwater Classic an amberjack weighing almost 91 pounds was caught which was just ounces larger than the one caught at Rock the Dock. I believe the next big tournament will be the Big Bend Saltwater Classic. It will be held over Fathers Day Weekend. Despite the enormous amount of rain we have been having, the shing has been really good for trout and Spanish. I still cant nd any reds. Fishing around Steinhatchee and Keaton Beach has been excellent for trout. Offshore they have been catching plenty of cobia and kings. Live pin sh, shrimp and numerous plastics have been working. Around Spring Warrior, big trout continue to be caught. One of my neighbors has a friend who fishes around Steinhatchee and he shes a lure called Live Target. He said he doesnt catch the number of trout he used to with a Gulp but the ones he does catch are big. Capt. Randy Peart said fishing around the Econ na has been good and reds are starting to be caught at the mouth of the creeks and around the oyster bars. Hes been catching most of his sh in 5 feet of water. Don Gary and a friend of his from Georgia have been catching plenty of trout around Live Oak Island and the stake line east of Live Oak Island. They have been using white/pink curly tail and chartreuse with a curly tail. They had the grandkids out and were catching trout on every cast. Last week a large group from Georgia came to Shell Island Fish Camp to fish and despite the terrible conditions they caught plenty of sh. Jimmy said this group started coming here 50 years ago. Some of the originals still come but now its mostly their kids and their kids children. Jimmy said the rain didnt even slow them down nor the wind on Saturday. Most of their fish were caught in 4 to 6 feet of water using live shrimp and Gulp. He said several boats ran out of shrimp and came back in for more and then went back out. One of the anglers caught and released a 48-inch red and they said you could hear him hollering when he landed it. On Sunday I shed with the Dr. Jim ONeil party from Tallahassee. We spent most of the day shing east of Shell Point and later in the day headed west to look for and not nd reds. We had our limit of trout and probably caught close to 100. Most were caught on a white Gulp and ounce lead shed real slow. The water east was a lot clearer than it was west and there were a lot more sh there. This Sunday is Mothers Day so dont forget. Remember to leave that oat plan, especially if going offshore. Good luck and good shing.Special to The NewsThe U.S. Forest Service is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act across the country. In honor of this event Apalachicola National Forest will offer a family-friendly Wilderness 50 Film Festival at the Trout Pond Recreation Area on Friday, May 16 from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Haven Cook, recreation planner with the National Forest in Florida will introduce a stunning new lm on the Tongass National Forest Wilderness Areas and several short videos that focus on the importance of this uniquely American idea. The Meaning of Wild is a half hour documentary film that takes viewers on a journey through one of our nations wildest landscapes, the Tongass National Forest of Southeast Alaska. The film follows wildlife cameraman Ben Hamilton as he travels by boat, plane, kayak and foot to capture and share the true value of Wilderness. The Film Festival is free and will take place at the Trout Pond Recreation Area located on Springhill Road in Tallahassee. The Trout Pond Recreation Area has picnic shelters, outdoor grills, and walking and biking trails surrounding a tranquil pond. Attendees are encouraged to bring flashlights, insect spray, and blankets or lawn chairs; and are welcome to use all facilities.

Bug-like jigs rate as outstanding imitations and tiny is better than big when it comes to picking the most effective jigs. Mini jigs can be more easily fished at the sluggish pace that sunfish prefer. These feather weight jigs snag less and can tempt fish that may not be hungry enough to bite big bait. Also, certain enticing retrieves are possible with tiny offerings that cant be duplicated with larger ones. When panfish get picky, matching their diet with a jig imitation can definitely bring more action. Also remember that they may smell the jig before deciding to eat, so a panfish attractor scent, or tipping it with a maggot or worm piece, could help. Panfish love bugs and jigs that mimic these tiny creatures which will help you pull in piles of panfish.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 13A Thank you to Duane Treadon who submitted the following report: This past Saturday, our Flotilla held its monthly meeting. While many topics were discussed one of great importance was emergency preparedness. A recently developed emergency response plan was introduced to members as well as a live test of the Everbridge Notification System. Everbridge is a notication system, provided by the Coast Guard, that can be used by a District, Division or Flotilla for emergency and non-emergency notices and information exchange. With the system members can be contacted by cell phone, home phone, text message, email, or any combination of these. During an emergency event the system is used not only to pass important information on to members, it is also used to account for the safety of members. If a member does not acknowledge receipt of an emergency message the system escalates using all forms of contact for the member. If no contact is made through the system then the members information is passed on to Coast Guard Investigative Services. Members of this division of the Coast Guard will then actively look for the member until their whereabouts and safety are con rmed. Just like our Flotilla your family should have a plan for emergencies such as fire, tornadoes and hurricanes. As hurricane season approaches read our articles for information on how you can prepare for the season. As the meeting concluded, several members received awards for ve dedicated years of service. Bravo Zulu to Tiffanie Bourassa, Mike Harrison, Phil Hill and Norma Hill. Our members are available to assist area boaters with complimentary Vessel Examinations, and scheduling Boat Safety Courses. Contact our staff of cer for vessel exams at fso-ve@uscaux.net and our public education of cer at fso-pe@ uscgaux.net. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www. uscgaux.net or contact our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Human Resources at fso-hr@uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at FC@ uscgaux.net.

You need a piece of equipment for which you exchange money. Sometimes, as in scuba, you also need training. Sports like golf, shooting sports, racing, and even beekeeping or knitting take some upfront investment from you. How often have you thought, Im just starting out so I want to just get the basics? Or how about you walked into a store and a sales associate offered you an entry level item. You think you will save money especially if you dont stick with your new found hobby and the sales associate thinks he/she is going to sell you upgrades later on. I think there is a better way. You come to me as a new student in scuba. I have a choice to sell you a $350 entry level Buoyancy Control device (looks like an in atable jacket) which is good for typical recreational diving. I might assume you will come back to upgrade to a back plate system (a more technical specialization) for spear shing because its less clutter and more durable, if you nd spear shing interesting later on. This would mean I sell you an item that serves essentially the same function TWICE. After you nd cave/wreck diving or spear shing, your dive kit turns to a back-plate with wing and then you nd youll need a side-mount harness to get to the far inner reaches or depth of that reef, cave or wreck. During the past recession, we have witnessed folks visiting the used market of eBay, Craigslist, forum classi eds or asking at our facility. This equipment is attractive to new divers on a budget so instead of buying from a dive store, they get these used dive bits at a fraction of the price you would pay. Is this a good deal? Not really, once you factor in rebuild, upgrade and old age (antiquated) costs. In todays economy, the dive stores struggle to sell equipment as determined by the equipment manufacturers, who increasingly pressure stores to order more product to keep prices low. This practice eventually will bankrupt the small retail stores when they cant sell to the volume required to keep the line. I have long argued from an environmental standpoint that the mass consumption of dive gear is immoral. Considerable chemical waste is the result of the byproduct of what we call soft goods in diving technology. When I began selling scuba gear a few years ago, I encouraged customers to buy dive gear once and allow it to grow with their diving experience. If you should fall away from diving the gear holds value better because there is a wider used market. Unfortunately Im an anomaly in the scuba retail sales arena, because I dont push equipment on the customer and I dont want the customer to walk away thinking they were sold substandard equipment. This past semester I worked with Gregg Stanton and his Introduction to Professional Diving class at Tallahassee Community College. We developed a high quality Buoyancy Compensator/harness/ cylinder mount that can be used from basic training all the way up through the many con gurations a diver may desire in their lifetime without being replaced. As they say, the last BC you will ever purchase! The students gave the concept high praise. If you are in the market for new equipment, or just looking into scuba as a new hobby, please take some time to weigh your options and dont be afraid to ask questions. You will save money in the end by buying equipment to grow with you. And if you drop away from diving for any reason, at least your equipment will be of greater value to other divers, instead of something that tragically ends up in a land ll.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 15AFrom Front PageHe said bringing up an amendment now is just confusing things. Sure people can sue, Lambou said. I can sue because I dont like your looks. It doesnt mean Im going to win. We think overwhelmingly people are going to vote for it. Merritt added there should be a variance window to allow certain community members to use their property without violating the ordinance. Commissioner Ralph Thomas said it still comes down to a property rights issue. People who develop their property inside of the 75-wetlands buffer can have their land taken. I just dont see how we can take peoples property, Thomas said. Our agenda item talked about a potential for a constitutional-takings claim if the referendum passes. The county could face damages and attorneys fees related to the constitutional takings. Commission Chairman Richard Harden said, This is not the nal say tonight. This vote will be to held a public hearing, so everything were talking about tonight it going to be rehashed again at the public hearing. The amendment was not accepted. The public hearing will be scheduled at a later date. In other matters: The pros and cons of non-partisan elections were also discussed at a workshop before the regular meeting. Commissioners voted at the regular meeting to put a non-partisan election initiative on the ballot in Novembers general election. The Wakulla County Charter Review Commission voted 14-0 to recommend to the board that non-partisan elections be placed on the ballot. The workshop served as a forum for the suggestion to be analyzed by commissioners. Buddy Wells, supervisor of elections, said according to the law, if there are two or more candidates, they are put on the ballot in the primary election. Thomas said nonpartisan elections level the playing eld. Commissioner Howard Kessler said it is important for the public to understand all the pros and cons of nonpartisan elections. He said without a party afliation listed on a ballot, voters who have not studied and researched candidates might not know how to vote. He said he would like to see the initiative on the ballot in the 2016 presidential election, because more people turn out to vote. When the item was brought before the public at the regular meeting, citizen James Hennessey questioned the advantage of nonpartisan elections. If theres only two people running, and somebody gets over 50 percent of the vote in the primary, then thats it, Hennessey said. They dont appear on the ballot, and its all over with. With the very poor turnout you tend to get in primaries, I have a lot of questions about what is the real advantage of this. We could have somebody whos elected by virtually very few people in the county. Charter Review Commission Chairman Chris Russell said his commission were also concerned about low voter turnout in the primaries. But, by God, people need to be voting, Russell said. Harden said the citizens might prefer a party af liation listed with the candidate. But the board should let people decide if they even want non-partisan elections in the rst place. A lot of citizens look to that to identify the candidate theyre going for, Harden said. In todays political world there is a clear distinction between those who are Republican, and those who are Democrat. Merritt said that is exactly why he likes the idea of non-partisan elections. If you go in and vote R or D, because you dont want to take time to learn about the candidates, I think thats wrong, personally, Merritt said. I think you should vote for the person, not the party. Charter Review Commission member Bill Russell said it was the intention of the group to get the item on the ballot in 2014. The next meeting will be Monday, May 19 at 6 p.m. in the commission chambers.From Front PageShe added that I understand the necessity, right now, to work with our state legislators to maximize policies for Wakulla to make them work the best they can for Wakulla County. The whole idea of our educational system is to educate our children, to have them grow up to be happy, well-adjusted, productive citizens, she said. When I came to Wakulla County, Mr. (Roger) Stokley was a principal and had just been elected superintendent and he made it his goal to see Wakulla County become one of the best school systems. Brock credited Stokley with putting in place the pieces that would lead to Wakullas current academic success. Stokley died in of ce and was succeeded by David Miller and, now, Bobby Pearce. Brock stressed she is really proud of Wakulla schools, and wants to see the success continue. Brock said she was a school volunteer in all four of her kids classrooms, and was a substitute teacher. She was also the rst librarian at the Wakulla County Library when it was founded in the old courthouse. I am 100 percent behind reading and education, she said. My mother always told me, You can never have too much education and it can never be taken away from you. She is an active member of Wakulla United Methodist Church, serving on staff-pastor relations and sings in the choir.

Mothers Day wishesPage 12BBlue Crab FestivalPage 6BKayak shing tournamentPage 2B Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014sports news and team views SportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track CoachIn addition to the high level of competition, this years FHSAAs State Finals Meet held on Friday at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville presented the additional challenges of a soaking rain and an altered schedule, but the local track athletes, who had qualified at the Regional Meet, didnt let any of it bother them and all had outstanding performances. When their final event was nished, every local athlete who competed placed in the top eight in their event and made it onto the podium. The performances included one state championship and two state runner-up finishes, as well as two seventh place nishes. The day started at 9 a.m. with the girls 4x800 meter relay which was run under cool and rainy conditions. Going in the WHS girls were ranked 9th, based on their time from the Regional Meet. In that meet the line-up included Madison Harris, who has the fastest 800 meter time in the state this year. Harris ran in the relay in both the District and Regional meets to ensure that the team moved on, but was held out of the relay at this meet so she could focus on the open 800 meters. So the girls knew they had their work cut out for them if they were to make it onto the podium, but they were focused and determined to medal. Each girl knew what time she had to run and it meant that they all had to either run or come really close to their PR (personal record) split. If they did that, they would run around 10:05. The rst heat winner had run 10:08, so they had to make sure they beat at least one team in their heat and that time. Senior Margaret Wiedeman ran the opening leg and blasted the rst 400 in 1:08, which was too fast, but she had to keep contact with the Bishop Moore runner. Bishop Moore was the school that, on paper, the local girls had to beat to make the top eight. She hung on and nished her leg in 2:31, two seconds faster than her previous best time. Next up was Senior Kayla Webbe who ran an excellent leg, closing signi cantly in the home stretch on the Bishop Moores second leg and had the WHS squad right where they needed to be. She ran her leg in 2:37, a new best time by 5 seconds, but the local squad was still in ninth place. Freshman Haleigh Martin, the fastest girl in the rotation, took the baton next and ran a great leg, running with poise and confidence beyond her years. She nished in the excellent time of 2:22, 3 seconds faster than her previous best, and had passed two girls ahead of her and put the WHS girls in sixth place. The anchor leg was run by junior Lydia Wiedeman, who is known for not only her times, but also for her heart and determination. Wiedeman ran hard and fought the whole way, nishing in 2:28, which is right at her best relay split, and lost one place to the anchor from West Florida Tech, but held the gap on the other two pursuing teams (Gulliver Prep, Bishop Moore) and nished in seventh place securing WHSs rst-ever podium nish for a relay team at the State Meet! The girls ran a State Elite time of 9:59.75, the second fastest relay time ever for a WHS girls team. The boys high jump competition had also started at 9 a.m. and continued on through worsening weather conditions and heavier rain. Coming into the meet, Corion Knight and Keith Gavin were ranked one and two in the state in 2A and they showed why. The wet track caused a lot of slipping and anxious moments for the jumpers. The meet quickly became, basically, a repeat of the Regional Meet, as the rst four jumpers were from Region 2. Gavin had earned the Regional championship in a jump off with Knight and this meet was headed in the same direction. The Trinity Christian and Rutherford jumpers cleared 6 but went out at 6. Knight and Gavin were the only two jumpers to clear 6 and they knew then that they would end up first and second, the only question that remained, was what the nal order would be. Both had cleared 6 this season, but the conditions made it clear that that probably wasnt going to happen Friday. Neither jumper cleared the next height of 6 and Knight was awarded the State Championship, based on fewer misses, and Gavin was the State Runner-up, for the second consecutive year. Knight had also qualified in the long jump and went on place 7th in that event. The nal race of the day for the local team was the girls 800 meters, which included WHSs Madison Harris, arguably the top 800 meter runner in the state. At the gun, last years state champion, Daesha Rogers from Miami Jackson, blasted to an early lead and held it for the rst 400 meters. Bolles High School runner Caitlyn Collier locked into second place with Harris tucked into fourth. Harris passed the rst split in 1:05, which was right where she had planned on being. The pack closed on Rogers down the backstretch, with Collier sweeping past her with about 150 meters to go, and the race was on. Harris and a Ransom Everglades runner made their moves just a little later and also passed a fading Rogers. Then Harris set her sights on Collier, who fought valiantly down the homestretch. Harris and Collier battled head to head the last 50 meters and Collier was able to hold on just enough to deny Harris her state championship. Collier finished in 2:13.54 and Harris in 2:13.59. Harris just needed about ve more yards of track, but it was a great and exciting race. It was the second consecutive state runner-up title for Harris. This was truly a state meet to remember, said Coach Paul Hoover. To have every athlete who competed at the meet make it onto the podium, including a state champion and two state runner-ups, really just doesnt happen but once in a career. Our kids ignored the conditions and just went out and performed. Coach Gavin has done a great job with Keith and Corion and it showed on Friday. They are exceptional athletes and outstanding young men and have dominated the high jump for the last two years. And our girls just did what they have done all year, they put their heart and souls into their races and ran smart, hard efforts. It would have been nice for Harris to get her championship, but apparently it wasnt in the cards. However, that doesnt diminish in any way all that she has accomplished in the last four years. She is a once in a career type athlete and I know she will be successful at the next level, Hoover said. I am so proud of all of our kids! This is a meet I will remember for the rest of my life. Overall, the girls placed 20th out of 50 scoring teams and the boys (Knight & Gavin) placed 6th, missing the top ve by only two points! This is also the best showing ever by the WHS teams. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSKeith Gavin was state runner-up in high jump, Madison Harris was state runner-up in the 800 meters, and Corion Knight was state champion in the high jump and 7th in the long jump.TRACKA state meet to remember IF WE DONT HAVE IT WE CAN GET IT!

Special to The NewsThe 2nd Annual Big Bend Kayak Classic was held on May 2 and 3 at Three Y Ranch in Crawfordville. The Sponsors came through from all over the region to support Meals-on-Wheels and to keep the services to senior citizens a oat! While the Friday night rains came, it did not dampen the spirits of the 92 anglers from all over the southeastern United States from assembling for a Captains meeting under the arena at the ranch. Food and drinks were plenteous an the anglers left that night after some great food, fun and fellowship, ready to sh Saturday morning. The weather cleared and a great day was had by all anglers. Red sh, Trout and Largemouth Bass were caught in abundance in and around the area of Wakulla County. The tournament is a catch, photo, and release tournament so no sh were killed or harmed during the event. Saturday evening brought the anglers back to the arena where multiple prizes were given away for their attendance! Kayaks were donated as rst place prizes for all categories, including a youth division. Cash and other prizes were given to anglers for second and third place prizes. A Taste of the Bayou low country boil topped off the evening and the anglers left the event and promised to return for the next years 3rd Annual Big Bend Kayak Classic which will be held the first Friday and Saturday of May. The event is planned and prepared by the team members of the Wakulla Senior Citizens Council, however, the event is presented by Kayak Professionals who are sponsored by various kayak manufacturers. Hobie always comes through as the headline sponsor and donates a high-end kayak for the grand slam division winner (longest red sh/trout combo). Maurice Langston, director of the center, said, Its wonderful to see local and regional support caring for the greatest generation of senior citizens in Wakulla County. Our sponsors take their efforts personal and they know they are taking care of the generation of people who took care of them and feeding those who have fed them and have made this county the great county that it is today. National sporting good chains gave of their resources, however, most resources for the event came from local help and loving hearts. Not one sponsor said no to supporting meals-on-wheels, according to Langston. Many cuts in federal and state programs have taken their toll on senior citizens and while many counties are having to step back on services, Wakulla County is kicking up its services to senior citizens. A big thank you to our sponsors and a great thank you goes out to all of Wakulla County. We live in the most blessed and best county in the region, second to none, said Langston.

By BRANDON LARABEE and DARA KAMTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 3 In some ways, it was a session of the unexpected. When lawmakers decamped to Tallahassee at the beginning of March, the agenda was full of conservative red meat. Taxes and fees would be slashed by $500 million. The states de facto school-vouchers program would be expanded. Military veterans would be given benefits in something dubbed the Florida GI Bill. Publicemployee pensions would be overhauled. And, if all went well, Gov. Rick Scott would be placed on a glide path to re-election. Most of those things happened though, it should be noted, the pension changes went down in ames. Some of them happened in an unexpected way, such as the voucher expansion, which seemed dead 12 hours before it was revived. But other items that werent on the radar or at best looked like long shots before the Legislature was gaveled into session in March ended up headed to Scotts desk by the time of the Legislatures traditional adjournment sine die. Some undocumented immigrants will be able to pay in-state tuition at Florida colleges and could become eligible to practice law in the state. And Republicans furiously ghting against a constitutional amendment that would allow the use of marijuana for medical problems backed a proposal that would give access to a noneuphoric version of the drug to rein in frequent seizures. Scott said he would sign those measures. Other issues of interest mostly to Adams Street insiders and the most politically active citizens also moved through. Under one bill, the 2016 session will begin in January, as long as Scott approves, allowing Tallahasseebound reporters to head to spring training games and lawmakers to get back home and start raising money. Or they could enjoy a spring weekend at the beach instead of in the Capitols Knott Building. Under another measure, voters will decide this fall whether outgoing governors should replace retiring Supreme Court justices when theyre leaving of ce at the same time. As for Scotts re-election polls are all over the map. Former Gov. Charlie Crist, the most likely Democratic nominee, is ahead by a lot, or a little, or in a dead heat with his successor, depending on which survey you prefer. Scott has already spent what Democrats estimate to be about $20 million on campaign ads, but if he reaches his self-identi ed fundraising goal for the election, theres $80 million more where that came from. And most Floridians are either just beginning to tune into the contest or waiting for a few more months before they make up their minds. Which means that the election this fall could be like the session that just ended: some things predictable, some things unexpected and an interesting ride all the way to the end. 2014 WORK PLAN: NOT ACCORDING TO PLAN For the second year in a row, House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, and Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, touted their ability to compromise and reach a joint work plan for their chambers a shared agenda meant to serve as a contrast to the often-toxic relationship between their predecessors, former House Speaker Dean Cannon and former Senate President Mike Haridopolos. For the second year in a row, the document included changes to the Florida Retirement System as one of its components. And for the second year in a row, the work plan was largely a success except for the FRS changes. Gaetz said afterward that the two leaders won approval for about 4.3 of their ve work plan entries. The failure of the pension overhaul was particularly frustrating for Weatherford, who was the primary force behind overhauling the retirement system for hundreds of thousands of state and county employees. On Wednesday, Weatherford wasnt quite ready to concede defeat on the initiative but was already eulogizing the plan, which went through multiple versions as lawmakers looked for the combination that could pass the Senate. Weve always known that it wasnt going to be an easy lift, he said. Another one of Weatherfords work-plan priorities came down to the very end, when a drive to expand eligibility for the states de facto voucher program passed in the waning hours of the session. The plan appeared dead on Thursday evening after Democrats used a procedural move to block it on the Senate oor. But Republicans revived it Friday morning, tacking it onto another education measure (SB 850). That bill passed only to twice be put on hold in the House, as lawmakers discussed whether to take off language dealing with diplomas for students with disabilities, an issue that was a priority of Sen. Andy Gardiner, an Orlando Republican who will take over from Gaetz following the November elections. Ultimately, the House let the measure pass unchanged. Other work-plan priorities including increasing bene ts for veterans, slashing taxes and fees by $500 million and improving state services for the elderly and children proved easier to pass, usually by broad, bipartisan margins. While theres dysfunction in Washington, D.C., and other states around the country, you showed that we could put policy above politics. We could put Florida above politics. And we can pass a signi cant work plan that changes the way that our state grows and changes the way that we prosper, Weatherford said after the session ended. TRYING TO REGAIN INNOCENTS Gaetz and Weatherford had already agreed to focus on reforming the child welfare system as part of the work plan when The Miami Herald began running Innocents Lost, a scathing series of articles documenting 477 child deaths over six years. On the last day of the session, lawmakers approved a far-reaching bill designed to revamp Floridas child welfare system, which had drawn legislative scrutiny over child deaths even before the Heralds reporting. The measure (SB 1666) passed both chambers unanimously, accompanied by $47 million in new funding for child protection. I believe that this legislation includes provisions that will require information about the tragedy of children dying and make that information available, Gaetz said. The measure was linked to a sweeping human traf cking bill (HB 7141), and both were collaborations by the House Healthy Families Subcommittee and the Senate Children, Families and Elder Affairs Committee. Funding for the bills is linked, also. The biggest item is for child protective investigators, with $18.5 million for 191 positions at the Department of Children and Families and $8 million for the six county sheriffs of ces that conduct investigations. The goal is to reduce investigator caseloads. GOING TO POT The Republican-dominated Legislature doesnt like pot. At least, not until this year, when, in an amazing turnaround, legislators gave overwhelming support to a medical marijuana proposal Scott has said he will sign. The proposal deals with a strain of marijuana that is low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) but high in cannabidiol (CBD). The strain, known as Charlottes Web, is supposed to dramatically reduce life-threatening seizures in children with a rare-form of epilepsy but has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Holley and Peyton Moseley a Panhandle couple who enlisted the support of Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Fort Walton Beach Republican who just happens to be the Senate presidents son led the charge on the issue on behalf of their adopted daughter RayAnn and about 150,000 other Florida families they say can bene t from the lowTHC marijuana.

Ben had been widowed for nearly 20 years and had lived alone in the house where he and Judith had raised their boy, John. Hed had a lot of health problems, there at the last, too. Things werent easy for him. Sometimes when a guy is in that shape, people nod and smile slightly at his passing and say, Well, in a way its a blessing, isnt it. But not with old Ben. Theres the sailboat, you see. After Judith died and Judith was the most practical woman in town Ben started buying and reading magazines about sailboats. Then he cut the front off the barn/garage out in back, and began building one. He drew crowds with his work for a while. Everyone stopped by from time to time, and we all know it is to be 32 feet long and a gaff-rigged not Marconi-rigged sloop. Said they look more like real sailboats. Eccentric? Well, maybe. Eccentricities last a year or two, but a 20-year project is a lot closer to being an obsession. When Ben could afford more of the special wood he was using, he bought it. Sometimes all hed get were some of those little brass whatchits to put along the side. But each time something came, there was work going on out in that garage. Ben took pride in the project being pay-as-you-go, so he wouldnt owe anybody when he nally put it in the ocean. Ben died before that happened, and that saddened us greatly. We might chuckle a bit behind his back, but we also secretly envied him and admired him for building that boat. After Ben passed, his son John brought his wife and children to live in the little house. After a few weeks, we heard activity out in the garage, and we found John working on his dads boat. It would, he said, eventually sail. There is no statute of limitations on dreams. Brought to you by the new CD Having Fun in New Mexico, Fifteen stories by Slim Randles. www.slimrandles.com.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 5BFrom Previous PageScott said he will sign the proposal (SB 1030), though the governor failed to limit the bill as he had hoped. The governor wanted to only allow patients involved in clinical trials to have access to the marijuana, usually administered in paste or oil form. IMMIGRATING TO A NEW POSITION For years, Florida Republicans have found strong opposition to illegal immigration -and anything that might encourage it -safe political ground. Scott himself got elected in part by labeling then-Attorney General Bill McCollum insufficiently tough on illegal immigration during the 2010 GOP primary. Then came the Mitt Romney wipeout in 2012, when Latinos helped propel President Barack Obamas re-election victory nationwide and in Florida. Suddenly, insiders from Washington, D.C., to Tallahassee were looking for new ways to appeal to Hispanic voters, many of whom viewed anti-illegal immigration rhetoric as a window into an anti-Latino mindset among some in the GO In Florida, Republicans settled on two proposals: One that would allow undocumented immigrants brought to America as children to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities, and another paving the way for an undocumented immigrant to practice law in Florida. In perhaps the highest-profile turnaround, Scott has promised to sign both bills, and in particular championed the tuition legislation, which also does away with the ability of most state universities to request tuition increases from the Florida Board of Governors without legislative approval. (The University of Florida and Florida State University will keep that authority, but at a much lower level.) STORY OF THE WEEK: The Legislature adjourned its 2014 session at 10:40 p.m. Friday, setting the stage for the November elections. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Ive been wrongly accused, Ive been left on Death Row and had one hour to die in the electric chair, and I prayed to fulll my need. Sometimes my fellow men have let me down, but God have lift(ed) me up. James Joseph Richardson, 78-year-old man who could nally receive payment for the 21 years he wrongly served in prison after his seven children died of poisoning. The Legislature approved a bill allowing him to apply for compensation.Roundup: Sine die 2013 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report City of SopchoppyWere pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from seven wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Leonard Tartt with the City of Sopchoppy at (850) 962-4611. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 100 Municipal Avenue, Sopchoppy, Florida. In 2013 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are ten potential sources of contamination identied for this system with low to moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state..us/swapp or they can be obtained from Leonard Tartt, Public Works Director at the City of Sopchoppy. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Sopchoppy is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by ushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also, come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. The City of Sopchoppy routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In the table to the right, you may nd unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following denitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reect the benets of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (Ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results/from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at the City of Sopchoppy would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. 2013 TEST RESULTS TABLEMAY 8, 2014

The seat is currently held by Ray Gray, who has not formally announced his intent on whether he will seek re-election. In addition to Brock, George Begley has also led to run. Brock has been a resident of Wakulla Station for some 40 years,and said she is running on her own merits, and not running against anybody. She noted that a school board member has two constitutional responsibilities: to pass a budget, and to provide policy. Brock said she felt a third responsibility is to be accessible and available to citizens parents, teachers, and students. I am an extremely friendly, outgoing person and I am completely committed to the idea of being accessible, she said. Brock is a librarian, and is currently the library branch manager in Woodville. Her four children have been through the Wakulla school system, and Brock said she is very proud of the local public schools. I think public schools have made us one of the strongest countries in the world, Brock said. My grandchildren are preparing to enter school, she said, noting that continuing the tradition of Wakulla schools providing excellent education for children. The current school board and superintendent are facing some real budget challenges, but also facing a challenge with the implementation of Common Core. The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an education initiative that details what K-12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. Brock contends that, with the Common Core Standards, there will be a way for states to compare their educational effectiveness that is at least comparing apples to apples, not apples to oranges. Its a good place to start, she said. At the same time, she said, Education has to be more than rote testing and training.... I would like to see educational policy nationally and locally Id like to see it more directed at helping children nd their personal gifts and develop those whatever those might be.Turn to Page 15AVerna Brock is running for school board, district 1By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netMotherhood is not limited to esh and blood. Motherhood sometimes means stepping up to help biological moms in crisis. This weekend Crawfordville resident Quinika Jackson will celebrate her first Mothers Day as a foster mom to two little ones a brother and sister, ages 2 and 3. Jackson, who has no children of her own, made the decision to open her life and home as a licensed fosterto-adopt parent last June. I always wanted to give back to the community and help kids that were in need, Jackson said. Childrens Home Society of Florida reports there are currently eight foster families in Wakulla County, and two new prospective families that are in the process of becoming foster parents. While Jackson does not know how long the two beautiful, browneyed youngsters will be with her, she lives and loves as if they shared her genes. After doing personal research about foster parenting, Jackson said she called Childrens Home Society to nd out what requirements were needed to become a foster parent. Along with an information packet, CHS ordered her to take a MAPP (Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting) training class. Because MAPP training classes werent offered in the area at the time, Jackson traveled to Jefferson County for foster parent education courses. I was so eager to get started, Jackson said. After a home inspection and background checks, a long list of requirements had to be ful lled before Jackson was licensed. She needed to purchase a crib, clothes, car seats, carriers and more.

WILLIAM SNOWDENSchool Board candidate Verna Brock. Wetlands amendment foundersBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netDialogue concerning wetlands continued at the Wakulla County Board of Commissioners meeting on May 5, as the public weighed in on Commissioner Randy Merritts amendment of the embattled wetlands ordinance. Voters will still have an opportunity to vote on the wetlands ordinance in November. Merritt said that on the advice of the county attorney, he believes repealing the ordinance before the referendum will expose the county to a potential increased risk of lawsuits. He presented an amendment that carries the ordinance to the date of the referendum. If the ordinance was repealed and buffer zones eliminated now, land owners might build within that zone. If the referendum passes and the buffer zones are reinstated, those land owners could sue the county. If we get rid of rule, and reinstate it, you have a better case to sue the county, Merritt said. Thats my point. Lets make it effective the day the referendum fails, so theres no gap, making the case safer to avoid liability. Wakulla Wetlands Alliance Chairman Victor Lambou said there is always a risk of a lawsuit with anything. Turn to Page 15AWould have made repeal e ective on date of referendum

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netPastors and community members gathered for prayer and song as they observed the National Day of Prayer at the Sopchoppy City Hall on May 1. The Rev. Kevin Hall, pastor at United Methodist Churches in Sopchoppy and Ochlockonee Bay, led the pledge to the American and Christian ags and an invocation. He prayed that as groups across the country gathered to pray, hearts of stone would be melted into hearts of esh. Randy Anderson, minister of music at Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church, led a song service. He started off with patriotic favorites, like This Land is Your Land, and This is My County. He transitioned into God Bless America and God is So Good. The Rev. Bruce Taylor of Mount Beasor Primitive Baptist Church thanked the City of Sopchoppy for allowing use of their space for the National Day of Prayer. He went on to pray for leaders in national of ces to city seats. Pray for our leaders, he said. You dont have to support their policies or beliefs, but you do need to support them. We are all created in the image of God and his likeness. Pray for our leaders, especially Barack Obama, our president. I didnt vote for him, but I will pray for him. Taylor went on to pray for congressional leaders in Washington, D.C., Gov. Rick Scott, state representatives and senators, county commissioners, Sopchopy city commissioners, and leaders in Wakulla Countys churches. Change in America has to come from the pulpits of America, he said. He said the failure of America should not be blamed on political leaders. The failure of America can be directed to the failure of the church to evangelize, Taylor said. Instead, we compromise. The Rev. John Dunning, pastor at Spirit Life Church of Sopchoppy, moderated the event. Every day should be a national day of prayer for our leaders, Dunning said. The Rev. Bill Jenkins of Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church talked about families and youth. What are you contributing to future generations? he asked. What kind of legacy are we leaving? Jenkins said younger generations should know God on a rst-hand basis and that faith should be lived out and perpetuated in the home. The Rev. Robert Jetton of Sopchoppy Congregational Holiness Church shared his personal experiences with common vices, and talked about ministering to prisoners. God saved me, and the trash came out, Jetton said. The only way God is limited is when we turn our backs. The Rev. Gordon Beal, pastor of Mount Elon Baptist Church, delivered a message of revival and prayer. I truly think people have the wrong concept of revival, Beal said. (They think) revival is for sinners and the world. But revival wont come to sinners and the world until it comes to the church. There has to be an awakening in the church body, before it goes into the world. Fred McClendon prays at Sopchoppy City Hall at the National Day of Prayer gathering on May 1.NICOLE ZEMALeaders lifted up at Day of Prayer CHAT pampers pooches at park By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netDogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes brought their owners to Pamper Your Pooch in Hudson Park, a dog-grooming and micro chipping event bene tting CHAT (Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment). CHAT Vice President Petra Shuff said from a nancial standpoint, Pamper Your Pooch on May 3 was the most successful event yet. We seemed to have more dogs to wash, and a few more microchips than usual, Shuff said. Sixteen CHAT volunteers spent the day clipping nails, giving bubble baths, applying ea and tick treatments, snapping glamour shots and more, all to bene t the Meals on Wheels pets, drug costs for the Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program, and educational materials. Crawfordville resident Becky Moore brought her little dog Reaux for a spa day at the park. We like to come out and support CHAT, Moore said. We always try to make it every year. Shuff said several people brought more than one dog, and one guest brought four dogs. Some were CHAT supporters and members, but there were a lot of new people too, she said. Thats encouraging. Political candidates stopped by, and some even rolled up their sleeves to wash and dry the critters. County commission candidate Steve Cusman stayed through the whole day. And Sheriff Charlie Creel spent some time at the event too, Shuff said. The next Pamper Your Pooch event will be in October. Another round of TNR is coming up on May 18. Volunteers are welcome.

From Front PageJust like youre having your own child, Jackson said. My mom and ance helped me a lot. They also had to get ngerprinted, along with anyone else who is a frequent visitor to the home. A week after being licensed, Jackson said her phone started ringing. I thought it would be a little while before placement came calling, she said. I didnt start accepting kids right away, because I was nervous. I prayed on it, asked God, when its the right time, let me know. Finally, the call came that changed Jacksons life. She knew it was the right time. I saw the CHS number pop up on my phone, and I got so nervous, Jackson said. They said, We have a placement for you its two! Their ages were 1 and 2 at the time. So I talked with ance and decided to go ahead and do it. But before Jackson and her ance could gather the children, they had to stop at Walmart for another car seat. MEETING HER NEW FOSTER CHILDRENJackson said she had an opportunity to meet the childrens biological mother, who was a woman in crisis, homeless and suffering in unfortunate circumstances. She wanted to meet us and see who her kids were going to be with, Jackson said. I was very nervous, being that it was my first placement, and meeting the mom right then and there. We didnt know what type of feelings she would have toward us. But, we met her, exchanged contact information and took whatever clothes she had for the kids. It was emotional for her, since her kids were being taken away from her. She didnt cry, but you could look at her face and know she was thinking, OK, whats next my kids are being taken from me. Jackson said she expected hurt reactions from the children over the loss of their mom. They cried their hearts out, but after that day, we havent had anything like that, Jackson said. In fact, Jackson said it was remarkable how quickly they bonded with her and her ance. She told the kids they could call her Q or Mommy Q, but mommy was the most natural noun for them. The first day we picked them up from school, you would think that these kids knew us, Jackson said. They started right away calling me mom, and my ance daddy. They had open arms. So, we came home, cooked dinner, took a bath, and went straight to bed like it was nothing. Jackson said she did have to go out the next day and purchase clothes that were more appropriate for school. The state Department of Children and Families did provide me a subsidy to buy things that I would need right away, Jackson said. That helped out a lot.SPECIAL TIME WITH GRANDMALike any grandma, Jacksons mother plays a big role in the childrens lives. My mom was very excited about me doing foster care, Jackson said. When I got these two, she fell in love with them right away. She treats them as if they are her own grandkids. She is constantly buying. On weekends I am off, she goes with me to pick them up from daycare. If (foster daughter) had a good day at school, she knows she gets surprises from grandma. But no good report no surprise. She loves to stay with my mom free time to stay up late, watch TV and run free. My mom spoils her. Jackson said her foster son is more attached to her and her ance. The little guy is overcoming developmental delays after having ear tubes inserted. He was constantly having ear infections, Jackson said. He couldnt hear at all, but after he came out of anesthesia, he was just non-stop talking. He could hear everything we were saying, and he was constantly repeating. He still has a long way to go, but he has come a very long way too. Before the surgery, Jackson said constant trips to the doctor were wearing her down, like it would any mother, biological or not. But eventually I got used to it, because no one else is going to do it, Jackson said. Thats what Im for. DISCIPLINE AND SCHEDULINGJackson was like a mama duck to water when it comes to discipline. Authoritative verbal communication and time-outs are effective at her house. The children also have superb manners, saying yes, maam and no, maam, please and thank you and excuse me when needing to interrupt or leave the dinner table. Scheduling is vital to running a peaceful home, Jackson said. She works long hours as an of cer at the Leon County Jail in booking and releasing. Her ance is an educator in Gadsden County. Managing family time takes careful budgeting. I learned I need to iron clothes for the whole week, and have dinner already prepped on work days, Jackson said. As time has gone by, its become easier. If I did not have support of my mom or fiance, I think it would be much harder, especially for a single person. I just get up everyday and prepare myself. Im in this. This is what I signed up for. Go with it.REWARDS AND CHALLENGESJackson said the most rewarding aspect of the experience is seeing the kids happy. Its rewarding seeing the smiles on their faces, and knowing that they are getting all the love, and then some, that they can get. I always tell my story about doing foster care, and people say that I treat them like theyre my own. They get so attached to you, and you get so attached to them. Yes, they are my babies. You want to do everything as if they are your biological children. But that reward subsists with a painful reality too. Jackson acknowledged that uni cation of the children and their mother or relatives is very likely. My case worker asked how I will react, Jackson said. But every day Im preparing myself for them to reunite with their mother as if it was tomorrow, so I wont be so emotional when the time comes. Right now, their mom is doing what she needs to do to get them back, and were hoping she stays on the right track. Maria Goodman, who is a family service coordinator for the CHS Early Steps program, said Jackson is a successful foster mom because she is naturally nurturing. She has such an amazing capacity with love and dedication to children in her care, Goodman said. You can see it in her face, in her eyes and demeanor. Have you seen her schedule? Shes just amazing. DO YOU WANT TO BE A FOSTER PARENT?To find out more about becoming a foster parent, visit the Childrens Home Services foster website at: www.chs .org/fostercare. The local number is (850) 219-4235. If and when her foster children are reunited with their family and other siblings, Jackson said she is ready and willing to take on more children. At first I said I wanted to take a break for a month or two, but yes, I will do it again, Jackson said. Im hoping for a baby the next time. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. TALLAHASSEE, May 6 State lawmakers came into the 2014 session with a surplus topping $1 billion and a mandate from Gov. Rick Scott to cut $500 million in taxes and fees. On Friday, May 2. the lawmakers handed Scott a $77.1 billion budget, the largest spending plan in state history. But while much of the money went to must-have programs such as education, health care and prisons, smaller items are littered through the more-than400-page document (HB 5001). Wakulla scored some water projects: As a boost to ecotourism, lawmakers want to make it easier for people to ride the waters of Wakulla County in Floridas Big Bend region. The budget includes $525,000 to develop canoe and kayak launches along public trails, $1 million for work on the St. Marks municipal dock and $735,000 for the Shell Point public-access boat launch facility.

The weather was bright and clear, the music uplifting and the fellowship charged with the Spirit of God. Over the course of the day, more than 400 people joined us in the park in Sopchoppy. It would be impossible to acknowledge all the churches, business and individuals that contributed to making this years event a success. Needless to say our heartfelt appreciation goes out to all who contributed their time, prayers, gifts and most importantly those that took time from their day to fellowship with us. As in past years we collected food for local food banks and maternity supplies for the Wakulla Pregnancy Center. Planners are already working on next years event and would like to encourage churches, businesses and individuals to get involved. For more information, email the planning committee at jesusriverfestival@live.com. Nathan Lewis Sopchoppy Because of incorrect information submitted to The News, last weeks Taking Care of Business contained inaccurate contact information for Business Women of Wakulla, which should have appeared as Gena Green, 268 Whiddon Lake Road, Crawfordville FL 32327. Phone: 926-3689. We regret the error.CorrectionEditor, The News: Who remembers Al Gore predicting the end of times in 2004? Global warming was all the rage with the liberal ideologue democrats. The polar caps were due to melt any day. By 2010, poor Al was nowhere to be seen after consecutive years of global freezing. The last environmental wacko to launch a nautical expedition to Antarctica (2012) to document the melting ice was trapped in freezing waters and had to be rescued. What a hoot. Not to be outdone, the wily liberals changed their campaign to climate change wherein all change in the weather had to be caused by man. The liberal Democrats excel at telling others how to live, eat and die. Telling the general population to ride bikes instead of cars, turn the heat off in the winter, air conditioning off in summer while they y around in diesel powered private jets and live in luxury. Needless to say a small contingent of Al Gores disbanded army have migrated south to Wakulla County where they have gone door-to-door with their apocalyptic vision, misinforming the honest, hard working people here to gather their required doomsday petition signatures. The facts are this: Over 98 percent of the pollutants found in our basin are from Tallahassee and Leon County. Imposing wetland restrictions on the sensible citizens in Wakulla County will NOT help them. However, over regulation and the carbon tax which is soon to follow if the citizens allow it will certainly further reduce our countys ability to generate jobs and improve the local economy. If you need any proof just look at the results of six years of Barry Obamas policies of over regulation and increased taxation. Food stamps anyone? Remember what President Ronald Wilson Reagan said about government, The most frightening thing you can hear is a knock at your door and someone saying, Im from the government and Im here to help. Im sure Carmen Sturchio (You cant eat money, Opinion Page, May 1 issue) will be in Al Gores next fairytale movie. Our commissioners have done the responsible thing in rejecting this infringement on property rights. Please vote for common sense and vote NO on the wetlands ordinance. Timothy Caldwell Panacea By KEVIN VAUGHNChamber PresidentAs president of the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce, one of my goals for 2014 is for us to generate net growth in number of members. We will achieve our goal through a combination of retention of existing members and attraction of new members. Sounds pretty simple, right? All it takes is spreading the word about the value we provide to our members and prospective members. Thats where we need your help. Our Chamber is extremely active in our community and quietly moves our mission forward year after year. From serving on the Charter Review Advisory Board to providing a business perspective on the new Sign Ordinance, your Chamber is always there. We also have a dedicated group of members who focus on Economic Development opportunities. Successful Economic Development requires that we maintain a business friendly environment that attracts new capital to our county. More Capital Investment translates to more jobs. More jobs means more opportunity for our local businesses to prosper. This requires that we showcase three key items. The rst is available locations in the area. Secondly, employers want to know we have a workforce available to ll their needs. The nal component is nancial incentives. As one of the RACEC counties, we qualify for most State incentives without the need for a county match. Your Chamber continues to promote its members through ribbon cuttings, networking events and promotion through partnership with The Wakulla News to name a few. We also provide a number of educational opportunities to help you get the latest information available on various timely topics that impact your business. If youre not already a member or if you know someone thats not currently a member, please check out our website at wakullacountychamber.com where youll nd more information and a membership application. Join us today so you can discover and experience the tremendous value Chamber membership provides you and your business. Kevin Vaughn is president of the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce.Editor, The News: Some occasions require a shout out and this is one of those. As a resident of the area I am honored to be a volunteer in two very important local events. Last weekend Rock the Dock brought around 550 participants to Rock Landing for a fishing tournament that brought folks as far north as Tennessee and south Florida as well. We sold T-shirts, raf e tickets and beer and food. Every catch was acknowledged on stage; women, children, and kayakers were entered in great raf es. Tournament sh unclaimed are donated to local charities. Vendors who donated also participated. This weekend featured the Blue Crab festival at Panaceas Woolley Park and again I was privileged to participate. Games, raf es, prizes, booths and vendors share our special avor with tourists from near and far. What a way to bring tourism to us-to bring goodwill and lots of fun. All proceeds of these fantastic events go back into the community in the form of waterfront improvements. Thanks to the organizers, our corps of volunteers, the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce, and all our community partners for all their time and efforts and for giving back to our local community. Mary Tollefsen Ochlockonee BayEditor, The News: The Board of Directors of Sustainable Big Bend would like to thank all who participated in making the Green Living Expo a resounding success. Many people and businesses are acknowledged in our thank you ad in this issue. However, we want to thank The Wakulla News in particular for its generous sponsorship and support of the Green Living Expo. We encourage other community organizations with upcoming events to avail themselves of the professional services of Lynda Kinsey and Eric Stanton. They will develop an advertising plan and create a series of ads promoting your event for a fee that is much lower than the cost of placing individual ads (even at buy one, get one free prices). They do this to support local not-for-pro ts and serve our community. In addition, we would like to thank Editor Bill Snowden and reporter Nicole Zema for publishing many of the articles we wrote and submitted to The Wakulla News prior to the event. Lastly, we thank reporter Zema for attending our event, asking many thoughtful questions, and writing an excellent article in last weeks edition of the paper. We are fortunate to have this wonderful resource in our county. Despite an extremely small staff, The Wakulla News does an excellent job of covering the many events and activities in our sprawling county. People can help our small local paper continue their vital role by being citizen reporters and writing and submitting articles and photos about events and other news that you would like to see publicized. The Wakulla News is truly our countys source for local news and information. Sincerely, Sustainable Big Bend Board of Directors Crawfordville Editor, The News: I would like to thank the active of cers and board members of Sustainable Big Bend Kathyrn Gibson, Sandy Cook, Toni Livingston, and Shelley Swenson for their vision, passion, and tireless commitment to promoting sustainable living in our region. I also thank other members of the Green Living Expo Planning Committee Leah Bowman, Madeleine Carr, and Jeannie Brodhead for their enthusiasm and the considerable energy they expended to help plan the many activities and offerings at the Green Living Expo. These are among the most knowledgeable, creative, giving, and just plain wonderful women I know. It was my honor and privilege to work with these outstanding volunteers these past few months. Sincerely, Lynn Artz Medart Editor, The News:Some Talquin Electric members have experienced scam calls pretending to be from Talquin Electric and demanding payment over the phone.

SNYDER Another year has gone by and I nd myself facing the same quandary I faced last year. Many people complain about how fast things are changing, I complain about those things that do not change at all. Interestingly, the things you want to change refuse to do so and the things you want to stay the same never do. I wish someone would figure out how to reverse this tedious trend of life. I am referring to the annual Mothers Day card fetish. I am not sure where this started or why, but I have my suspicions. I think we can safely rule out husbands and men as suspects. I could see a man doing it one year, but to do it year after year is not within the scope of a mans ability. If a man does something one time and it is successful, he never chances doing it the second time when it may be a failure. Now we have on our hands tremendous pressure to purchase a yearly Mothers Day card. When it comes to card buying, I simply do not know where to go. Oh, I know where to get them; I simply do not know which one to purchase. If it was up to me, and let me point out very quickly, it is not, I would have one card for sale each year. Maybe I would modify the card each year and perhaps write something different in it, but how many ways can you say Happy Mothers Day? As it stands (and I wish it would sit down and rest for a while), there are more Mothers Day cards than stars in the heavens. It is virtually impossible to pick out the right Mothers Day card. Since I do not keep up with the latest trends in this regard I am at quite a disadvantage. One year I tried to remedy my Mothers Day card-buying dilemma by buying a box of 50 cards that were on sale right after Mothers Day. I thought I had hit the mother lode, so to speak. With this purchase, I had enough Mothers Day cards to last my entire lifetime. Unless, of course, I live to be 129. This lasted for two years. The rst year I presented my Mothers Day card to my wife and she gave me all kinds of smiles and hugs. I was relieved to have solved a big problem in my home. I now could rest and focus on solving other problems in my life, of which there are many. It was the second year that kicked me in the teeth. As usual, that year, I presented my wife with her Mothers Day card. Trust me, I was not fully geared up for the response I got. I was expecting smiles and hugs like the year before. What I got was a glare and a shrug. She looked at me and said something I shall never forget. Isnt this the same card you gave me last year? How do wives remember these things? The only reason I knew it was the same card as last year is I had more just like it in the box it came from. To have a problem unsolved is a very nerveracking experience, to be sure. Now I must go back and start the whole Mothers Day card buying process over again. This brings me to the second part of my quandary. When did it become necessary for husbands to buy their wives Mothers Day cards? Sure, she washes my clothes, cooks my meals and bosses me about. She still is not my mother. When the children start coming into the home it is quite natural, because they are too young to make such important decisions, for the father to buy the Mothers Day card on behalf of the children. I still remember that rst Mothers Day card. Our rst baby was only seven months old and had no idea what was going on in the world or even in the home. I gave my wife her rst Mothers Day card. She was so excited. Because she was excited, so was I. This is where the whole nonsense starts. What I want to know is when do husbands stop buying Mothers Day cards for their wives? The last child in our home left more than 15 years ago and still I nd myself under the awesome pressure of purchasing a Mothers Day card for my wife. When do the children take control of this yearly responsibility? In spite of my quandary, it is important to honor both fathers and mothers. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the rst commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:2-3). Would anybody want to buy a box of 48 Mothers Day cards, cheap?.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

I received a call for help from a dear friend, whose mother had just passed away. I am a funeral director, and helping others when they are hurt to their core, when waking and functioning are more than they can bear, and when their lives have become bitterly painful, gives me great satisfaction. I immediately drove my hearse over to my friends house, which is just down the street from my own, and sat with her, holding her hand as she called and noti ed her family of their great loss. My friend is a brave woman. She is a therapist; her job is to help others heal. Healing others comes naturally to her, and she is great at it. She nds the good in people and helps them draw upon their inner strength for recovery. She is an amazing woman. As I sat there, beside her, holding her hand, I felt her breath quiver and her hand tremble ever so slightly. I knew I was witnessing the courage of a healer, mustering all of the valor she held in reserve, for this most dreaded and grievous moment. She had just lost her mother, yet she was nurturing and comforting her own adult children through the heart wrenching realization of losing their beloved grandmother. It was a profound moment for me, because I saw her mothers matriarchal mantel pass onto her own capable shoulders. Preparing my friends mother for burial was an honor. I could see the ravages of her illness on her tiny body. I also saw the care and love my friend had rendered her mother, over the long and painful course of her disease. As brutal as Alzheimers is on ones mind, it is likewise brutal on ones body. The years and months of confusion can be debilitating and dangerous on the patient, as well as their family. My friend had taken such loving care of her mother, that the usual physical signs of prolonged dying were absent from her mothers tiny body. My friend brought her mothers clothing to me and along with the beautiful dress that her mother would wear when being laid to rest, was a pair of the loveliest stiletto heels. My friend had taken such meticulous care of her mother, that even her feet were beautifully manicured and in perfect health. My husband lifted my friends mother in his arms, and cradled her as he carried her to her casket. When she lay there, I looked at her and thought, what a wonderful mother she must have been to have raised such an outstanding daughter. One who would become a healer and care for her in her nal days. Last week was a great week for me. I served a dear friend at the loss of her beloved mother. My reward was being able to witness the best in humanity at the most painful moment in life, the death of a treasured loved one. I love my friend. I pray for her recovery, and I give thanks for my privilege in knowing her and serving her..Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer.

This award is given to honor a nurse who has made a signi cant contribution to the Big Bend Hospice nursing practice each year. Nominated by her supervisor, Tinu Agboola, Sandy was recognized for her diligence, problem-solving, and compassion to patients and families. Sandy Klein has been a dedicated employee of Big Bend Hospice for more than seven years. As a hospice triage nurse, she often interacts with patients and families when they are facing one of the most dif cult times in their lives. She has a reputation of being an expert in crisis management. When families call Big Bend Hospice and are panicked due to lack of understanding or for other reasons, Sandys experience and guidance, ensuring proper communication with physicians, vendor, or facilities, prove to be the perfect combination for the best solution. Her goal is to make sure that the patient/family is satis ed and that the mission of Big Bend Hospice is attained. Team player is another word used quite often by Sandys coworkers when describing her role at Big Bend Hospice. During the holidays and weekends when many people are at home with families and loved ones, Sandy offers to cover the unit so others can have the time off. Her desire for excellence drives her to ensure someone is available 24/7 to answer the telephone when/if a family calls. Big Bend Hospice does not use an answering service. All calls are answered by staff, day or night, thanks to Sandys commitment to quality customer service. The Award for Nursing Excellence is given in honor of Carol Pluchina Gaeta-Jaffee. Carol worked her entire professional life as a registered nurse. Carol moved to Tallahassee in March 1993 to begin work as a Big Bend Hospice nurse. After being injured in a car accident she was unable to work again and retired from nursing. Carol died in Hospice House in September 2004 after a long struggle with Cattlemans disease, a little known disorder of the lymphatic system. Her husband, Reid Jaffe, honors her memory with this award each year through Big Bend Hospice. Jaffe surprised Sandy at the Big Bend Hospice staff meeting in February by presenting the award in person. Sandy makes everyone around her better at what they do by just being an example of calmness and professionalism, says Agboola. She has the ability to look at a very complicated situation, go to the heart of it, cutting through the unneeded peripheral emotions, and providing the best care to our patients.Sandy Klein receives nursing excellence award SPECIAL TO THE NEWSNurse Sandy Klein with Reid Jaffe.

By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netA young goliath grouper in Panacea needs a name, and a bigger tank. Directors of the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab are counting on the publics help with both on Sunday, May 18. The lab and aquarium is hosting its fth annual bene t event, Sharks & Chablis, on from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 222 Clark Drive in Panacea. The event will also celebrate the aquariums 50th birthday. Cypress Rudloe, executive director of the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, said proceeds raised at the event will be used for construction of a home for the labs goliath grouper. Not only does the grouper need a tank it needs a name. Guests can purchase tickets to suggest names, and one will be drawn to name the grouper. The soon-to-be massive sh is a vital part of the reef ecosystem on Wakulla Countys coastline. We are going to need a big enough tank to house him, Rudloe said. Hes basically a foot long right now, and will grow to be about 800 pounds, and 5 to 6 feet long. The goliath grouper is one of the top predators of the reef. It is considered an apex predator, which is crucial to the ecosystem because it monitors all populations of sh on the reef, so not one individual species population will explode. They are very important to the biodiversity of reefs offshore. Rudloe said Sharks & Chablis is open to individuals and families. Tickets can be purchased in advance, or at the gate. Sammy Tedder and Rick Ott will perform live. There will also be a performance and exhibition by a band that makes instruments out of found materials. The street party also features seafood by the Seineyard Seafood Restaurant, Barefoot Wines and craft beer, silent auction and guided tours of the aquarium. Exhibitors add to the fun with live birds and reptiles, wilderness awareness and unique photo ops. Rudloe said the Chehaw Zoo out of Albany Ga., is bringing down different animals, and will entertain and educate with an interactive program on stage with critters including hawks, lemurs and other safari-type animals. Guests who arent squeamish can check out a venous snake display, featuring snake species in north Florida. The Florida Wild Mammal Association will also participate. To buy tickets or make a donation, visit www.gulfspecimen.org/sharksand-chablis. Or call (850)984-5297. To learn more about the work being done at GSML, visit www.gulfspecimen.org.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 9AI have recently become interested in nutrition which plays an important role not only for us but for our dearly loved family members (pets) Part of my excitement regarding nutrition is due to my recent trip to Topeka, Kansas. Hills Pet Nutrition, the makers of Science Diet, invited me to Kansas for a three day tour and conference trip. We toured their Pet Nutrition Center which is where they house many dogs and cats that go through their product feeding tests. It was truly like a Disney World for pets. Nutrition is truly important and there are three main life stages of your pet: the puppy/kitten stage, adulthood stage and senior stage. When a puppy or kitten is less than a year old, its important that they receive a properly balanced diet which will promote growth and development. After a year, they can be transitioned to an adult food which will balance vitamins and minerals, and contain a less amount of fat and calories. Once they reach the age of seven, they are considered to be in the senior stage of life and would bene t with a senior type diet. Usually a senior diet will contain a less amount of phosphorus, protein, sodium and calcium. All of these nutritional needs in excess could lead to heart and kidney conditions. Thankfully, there are good pet foods out there and a lot of information can be obtained by reading the bag. The Association of American Feeding Control Of cials (AAFCO) is a government agency that regulates and sets nutritional standards for pet foods. An AAFCO statement is a legal document that must be printed on every bag in order to be sold and contains two key pieces of information. First, it will tell you if that pet food has been tested or formulated. For example, if the label states that Brand X cat food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels this means that chemical analysis has been done on the food to measure the nutrients it contains. However, nutrients arent always digestible to your pet. If the label states that, Animal feeding tests substantiate that Brand Y cat food is balanced then this means that the food was actually fed to dogs in a series of tests and thus determined to be a quality product. The second thing the AAFCO statement will tell you is what life stage the food is balanced for. This includes growth, reproduction, adult maintenance or for all life stages. Unfortunately, there is not a stage concerning our senior pets at this time so your veterinarian can point you in the right direction as to the proper diet selection. Typically, staying away from an all life stage food is best because this claims that you could feed a four month old puppy the same food even when your pet is 10 years of age. That doesnt seem right, does it? Besides the AAFCO statement, you can also nd a daily feeding guide which will tell you exactly the amount you need to feed your pet according to their weight. However, this feeding guide doesnt always take into consideration if a pet is spayed, neutered, or obese prone. It is important to take into fact if your pet is spayed or neutered because their energy requirement decreases and they do not need as much food as the feeding guide claims. Thankfully, there is also a way to calculate your pets DER (daily energy requirement) in regards to their activity and life styles. Unfortunately, obesity in pets is on the rise and a lot of times it can be prevented with proper nutrition. Obesity can lead to a shorter life expectancy, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer. Many times we do not realize how much treats can add more weight to our pets, but they also contain calories that can add up quickly. Overall, treats should equal no more than 10% of their total diet. It is important to realize that our pets are a lot smaller than us and for something we feel is a small treat can be way too much for our pets. For example, if you give a dog a hot dog, it is equivalent to a human eating three cheeseburgers. Or, if you give a cat an ounce of cheese, it is equivalent to a human eating three and a half cheeseburgers or four chocolate bars. Other acceptable treats that are low in calories for a pet (which surprisingly they enjoy) are carrots, green beans and apples. This is just a quick glance into proper pet nutrition and hopefully you realize how important it is to your pets health. I want my own pets to live a long and healthy life which is why I pay very close attention to what they eat. Just like us, nutrition has a large impact on our health so I hope you pay attention to your pets health also. Next time you take your pet in for a wellness visit, take your pets food bag with you and ask your veterinarian if it is the best choice for them.Tail Wagger News...JEANETTE BURDETTECert.

By Nicole Zemanzema@thewakullanews.netWhile many Wakulla High School upperclassmen spent Friday, April 25 picking up their tuxes, polishing their shoes, buying corsages, and gearing up for prom night, ve carpentry students donated their day to build a new deck and safer steps at a home in Sopchoppy. Kyle Alexander, Chad Deal, Eli Keeling, William Mobley and Ryan Carden sawed wood, schlepped boards and swung hammers to make a safer, more accessible entrance to Elizabeth Comstocks home on Surf Road. The work was organized through a partnership with Ability 1st and the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce. When do you get anything for free? asked Comstock, a former clerical assistant who has been living in the area since 2009. Im especially thankful because Im out of a job right now, so its nice to have this kind of service. A ramp was in the original plans, but since Comstock is not in a wheelchair, she said shorter stairs would suf ce. I wont have to climb the mountain anymore, Comstock said. It was tough to carry groceries up those steep steps. Ability 1st Access to Independence Program coordinates with professionals and community groups that volunteer time and resources to build wheelchair ramps (or safer stairs) for individuals in a six-county region. Ability 1st volunteer carpenter Eric Evans supervised the construction. Evans said Bruce Ashley and Mike Kemp from the sheriffs of ce helped to coordinate the students with the Center for Independent Living in Tallahassee to help Ms. Comstock. There is a big need for this in Wakulla County, Evans said. Our projects are massive because were in a ood zone. Everything is built to code and built to last as long as possible. Evans said Comstocks new steps will have a 4-to-5 inch riser, instead of the original steps 7-to-8 inch riser. The students were sweaty but happy as they carried out their construction tasks. Carden said besides his carpentry class, he has experience in construction helping his step dad and grandparents with different projects. Its lots of fun if you do it right, Carden said. I love helping people. Thats why Im joining the military. Mobley said besides gaining leadership and job skills from the construction task, he also had a spiritual motive. Im a Christian, so it makes me feel good to do something like this, Mobley said. Alexander said he was glad the weather wasnt too hot; as he mastered cutting angles with a skill saw. Deal added that he enjoyed doing the work for free, especially because it was helping Ms. Comstock. Keeling said he has experience in deconstruction, rebuilding, fencing and lathe work. I like to volunteer when I can, Keeling said. Anything to help out. Kevin Ogden is the Access to Independence program manager with Ability 1st. He said the organization builds ramps or half steps for low-income citizens who have issues with mobility and qualify for services. He said the organization also loans medical equipment such as crutches, canes, wheelchairs, hospital beds, power chairs and incontinent supplies to qualifying residents in the six-county area. Ability 1st has been helping needy residents of Wakulla County for 22 years, he said, and over time has partnered with groups like the WCSO. To inquire about assistance qualication, call Kevin Ogden at 850-5759621, ext. 106, or visit the website: www.ability1st.info. Those who wish to volunteer with building projects, or who wish to donate funds or medical equipment, may also call Ogden. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 11A Carpentry students lend a handPHOTOS/NICOLE ZEMATop left: Chad Deal cuts angles as Kyle Alexander holds the board.

JODY CAMPBELL After four days of torrential downpours, the weather turned out real nice, especially Sunday. The water from Live Oak Island west and from the St. Marks River east is as black as three day old coffee. In between there its not too terribly bad. Congratulations to the folks who put on the Rock the Dock Tournament. They had great weather, a good turnout and a lot of nice sh caught. In 2007 during the Saltwater Classic an amberjack weighing almost 91 pounds was caught which was just ounces larger than the one caught at Rock the Dock. I believe the next big tournament will be the Big Bend Saltwater Classic. It will be held over Fathers Day Weekend. Despite the enormous amount of rain we have been having, the shing has been really good for trout and Spanish. I still cant nd any reds. Fishing around Steinhatchee and Keaton Beach has been excellent for trout. Offshore they have been catching plenty of cobia and kings. Live pin sh, shrimp and numerous plastics have been working. Around Spring Warrior, big trout continue to be caught. One of my neighbors has a friend who fishes around Steinhatchee and he shes a lure called Live Target. He said he doesnt catch the number of trout he used to with a Gulp but the ones he does catch are big. Capt. Randy Peart said fishing around the Econ na has been good and reds are starting to be caught at the mouth of the creeks and around the oyster bars. Hes been catching most of his sh in 5 feet of water. Don Gary and a friend of his from Georgia have been catching plenty of trout around Live Oak Island and the stake line east of Live Oak Island. They have been using white/pink curly tail and chartreuse with a curly tail. They had the grandkids out and were catching trout on every cast. Last week a large group from Georgia came to Shell Island Fish Camp to fish and despite the terrible conditions they caught plenty of sh. Jimmy said this group started coming here 50 years ago. Some of the originals still come but now its mostly their kids and their kids children. Jimmy said the rain didnt even slow them down nor the wind on Saturday. Most of their fish were caught in 4 to 6 feet of water using live shrimp and Gulp. He said several boats ran out of shrimp and came back in for more and then went back out. One of the anglers caught and released a 48-inch red and they said you could hear him hollering when he landed it. On Sunday I shed with the Dr. Jim ONeil party from Tallahassee. We spent most of the day shing east of Shell Point and later in the day headed west to look for and not nd reds. We had our limit of trout and probably caught close to 100. Most were caught on a white Gulp and ounce lead shed real slow. The water east was a lot clearer than it was west and there were a lot more sh there. This Sunday is Mothers Day so dont forget. Remember to leave that oat plan, especially if going offshore. Good luck and good shing.Special to The NewsThe U.S. Forest Service is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act across the country. In honor of this event Apalachicola National Forest will offer a family-friendly Wilderness 50 Film Festival at the Trout Pond Recreation Area on Friday, May 16 from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Haven Cook, recreation planner with the National Forest in Florida will introduce a stunning new lm on the Tongass National Forest Wilderness Areas and several short videos that focus on the importance of this uniquely American idea. The Meaning of Wild is a half hour documentary film that takes viewers on a journey through one of our nations wildest landscapes, the Tongass National Forest of Southeast Alaska. The film follows wildlife cameraman Ben Hamilton as he travels by boat, plane, kayak and foot to capture and share the true value of Wilderness. The Film Festival is free and will take place at the Trout Pond Recreation Area located on Springhill Road in Tallahassee. The Trout Pond Recreation Area has picnic shelters, outdoor grills, and walking and biking trails surrounding a tranquil pond. Attendees are encouraged to bring flashlights, insect spray, and blankets or lawn chairs; and are welcome to use all facilities.

Bug-like jigs rate as outstanding imitations and tiny is better than big when it comes to picking the most effective jigs. Mini jigs can be more easily fished at the sluggish pace that sunfish prefer. These feather weight jigs snag less and can tempt fish that may not be hungry enough to bite big bait. Also, certain enticing retrieves are possible with tiny offerings that cant be duplicated with larger ones. When panfish get picky, matching their diet with a jig imitation can definitely bring more action. Also remember that they may smell the jig before deciding to eat, so a panfish attractor scent, or tipping it with a maggot or worm piece, could help. Panfish love bugs and jigs that mimic these tiny creatures which will help you pull in piles of panfish.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 13A Thank you to Duane Treadon who submitted the following report: This past Saturday, our Flotilla held its monthly meeting. While many topics were discussed one of great importance was emergency preparedness. A recently developed emergency response plan was introduced to members as well as a live test of the Everbridge Notification System. Everbridge is a notication system, provided by the Coast Guard, that can be used by a District, Division or Flotilla for emergency and non-emergency notices and information exchange. With the system members can be contacted by cell phone, home phone, text message, email, or any combination of these. During an emergency event the system is used not only to pass important information on to members, it is also used to account for the safety of members. If a member does not acknowledge receipt of an emergency message the system escalates using all forms of contact for the member. If no contact is made through the system then the members information is passed on to Coast Guard Investigative Services. Members of this division of the Coast Guard will then actively look for the member until their whereabouts and safety are con rmed. Just like our Flotilla your family should have a plan for emergencies such as fire, tornadoes and hurricanes. As hurricane season approaches read our articles for information on how you can prepare for the season. As the meeting concluded, several members received awards for ve dedicated years of service. Bravo Zulu to Tiffanie Bourassa, Mike Harrison, Phil Hill and Norma Hill. Our members are available to assist area boaters with complimentary Vessel Examinations, and scheduling Boat Safety Courses. Contact our staff of cer for vessel exams at fso-ve@uscaux.net and our public education of cer at fso-pe@ uscgaux.net. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www. uscgaux.net or contact our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Human Resources at fso-hr@uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at FC@ uscgaux.net.

You need a piece of equipment for which you exchange money. Sometimes, as in scuba, you also need training. Sports like golf, shooting sports, racing, and even beekeeping or knitting take some upfront investment from you. How often have you thought, Im just starting out so I want to just get the basics? Or how about you walked into a store and a sales associate offered you an entry level item. You think you will save money especially if you dont stick with your new found hobby and the sales associate thinks he/she is going to sell you upgrades later on. I think there is a better way. You come to me as a new student in scuba. I have a choice to sell you a $350 entry level Buoyancy Control device (looks like an in atable jacket) which is good for typical recreational diving. I might assume you will come back to upgrade to a back plate system (a more technical specialization) for spear shing because its less clutter and more durable, if you nd spear shing interesting later on. This would mean I sell you an item that serves essentially the same function TWICE. After you nd cave/wreck diving or spear shing, your dive kit turns to a back-plate with wing and then you nd youll need a side-mount harness to get to the far inner reaches or depth of that reef, cave or wreck. During the past recession, we have witnessed folks visiting the used market of eBay, Craigslist, forum classi eds or asking at our facility. This equipment is attractive to new divers on a budget so instead of buying from a dive store, they get these used dive bits at a fraction of the price you would pay. Is this a good deal? Not really, once you factor in rebuild, upgrade and old age (antiquated) costs. In todays economy, the dive stores struggle to sell equipment as determined by the equipment manufacturers, who increasingly pressure stores to order more product to keep prices low. This practice eventually will bankrupt the small retail stores when they cant sell to the volume required to keep the line. I have long argued from an environmental standpoint that the mass consumption of dive gear is immoral. Considerable chemical waste is the result of the byproduct of what we call soft goods in diving technology. When I began selling scuba gear a few years ago, I encouraged customers to buy dive gear once and allow it to grow with their diving experience. If you should fall away from diving the gear holds value better because there is a wider used market. Unfortunately Im an anomaly in the scuba retail sales arena, because I dont push equipment on the customer and I dont want the customer to walk away thinking they were sold substandard equipment. This past semester I worked with Gregg Stanton and his Introduction to Professional Diving class at Tallahassee Community College. We developed a high quality Buoyancy Compensator/harness/ cylinder mount that can be used from basic training all the way up through the many con gurations a diver may desire in their lifetime without being replaced. As they say, the last BC you will ever purchase! The students gave the concept high praise. If you are in the market for new equipment, or just looking into scuba as a new hobby, please take some time to weigh your options and dont be afraid to ask questions. You will save money in the end by buying equipment to grow with you. And if you drop away from diving for any reason, at least your equipment will be of greater value to other divers, instead of something that tragically ends up in a land ll.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 15AFrom Front PageHe said bringing up an amendment now is just confusing things. Sure people can sue, Lambou said. I can sue because I dont like your looks. It doesnt mean Im going to win. We think overwhelmingly people are going to vote for it. Merritt added there should be a variance window to allow certain community members to use their property without violating the ordinance. Commissioner Ralph Thomas said it still comes down to a property rights issue. People who develop their property inside of the 75-wetlands buffer can have their land taken. I just dont see how we can take peoples property, Thomas said. Our agenda item talked about a potential for a constitutional-takings claim if the referendum passes. The county could face damages and attorneys fees related to the constitutional takings. Commission Chairman Richard Harden said, This is not the nal say tonight. This vote will be to held a public hearing, so everything were talking about tonight it going to be rehashed again at the public hearing. The amendment was not accepted. The public hearing will be scheduled at a later date. In other matters: The pros and cons of non-partisan elections were also discussed at a workshop before the regular meeting. Commissioners voted at the regular meeting to put a non-partisan election initiative on the ballot in Novembers general election. The Wakulla County Charter Review Commission voted 14-0 to recommend to the board that non-partisan elections be placed on the ballot. The workshop served as a forum for the suggestion to be analyzed by commissioners. Buddy Wells, supervisor of elections, said according to the law, if there are two or more candidates, they are put on the ballot in the primary election. Thomas said nonpartisan elections level the playing eld. Commissioner Howard Kessler said it is important for the public to understand all the pros and cons of nonpartisan elections. He said without a party afliation listed on a ballot, voters who have not studied and researched candidates might not know how to vote. He said he would like to see the initiative on the ballot in the 2016 presidential election, because more people turn out to vote. When the item was brought before the public at the regular meeting, citizen James Hennessey questioned the advantage of nonpartisan elections. If theres only two people running, and somebody gets over 50 percent of the vote in the primary, then thats it, Hennessey said. They dont appear on the ballot, and its all over with. With the very poor turnout you tend to get in primaries, I have a lot of questions about what is the real advantage of this. We could have somebody whos elected by virtually very few people in the county. Charter Review Commission Chairman Chris Russell said his commission were also concerned about low voter turnout in the primaries. But, by God, people need to be voting, Russell said. Harden said the citizens might prefer a party af liation listed with the candidate. But the board should let people decide if they even want non-partisan elections in the rst place. A lot of citizens look to that to identify the candidate theyre going for, Harden said. In todays political world there is a clear distinction between those who are Republican, and those who are Democrat. Merritt said that is exactly why he likes the idea of non-partisan elections. If you go in and vote R or D, because you dont want to take time to learn about the candidates, I think thats wrong, personally, Merritt said. I think you should vote for the person, not the party. Charter Review Commission member Bill Russell said it was the intention of the group to get the item on the ballot in 2014. The next meeting will be Monday, May 19 at 6 p.m. in the commission chambers.From Front PageShe added that I understand the necessity, right now, to work with our state legislators to maximize policies for Wakulla to make them work the best they can for Wakulla County. The whole idea of our educational system is to educate our children, to have them grow up to be happy, well-adjusted, productive citizens, she said. When I came to Wakulla County, Mr. (Roger) Stokley was a principal and had just been elected superintendent and he made it his goal to see Wakulla County become one of the best school systems. Brock credited Stokley with putting in place the pieces that would lead to Wakullas current academic success. Stokley died in of ce and was succeeded by David Miller and, now, Bobby Pearce. Brock stressed she is really proud of Wakulla schools, and wants to see the success continue. Brock said she was a school volunteer in all four of her kids classrooms, and was a substitute teacher. She was also the rst librarian at the Wakulla County Library when it was founded in the old courthouse. I am 100 percent behind reading and education, she said. My mother always told me, You can never have too much education and it can never be taken away from you. She is an active member of Wakulla United Methodist Church, serving on staff-pastor relations and sings in the choir. She is married to Ed Brock, who has worked at the powder plant in St. Marks for 37 years, and they have four children and two grandchildren.Wetlands amendment foundersVerna Brock is running for school board, district 1 The BUZZ Its ALL The BUZZ T T T T T T T h h h h T T T T T T T T h h h h Its ALL TO ALL WHO MADE THIS YEARS GREEN LIVING EXPO A SUCCESS!

When their final event was nished, every local athlete who competed placed in the top eight in their event and made it onto the podium. The performances included one state championship and two state runner-up finishes, as well as two seventh place nishes. The day started at 9 a.m. with the girls 4x800 meter relay which was run under cool and rainy conditions. Going in the WHS girls were ranked 9th, based on their time from the Regional Meet. In that meet the line-up included Madison Harris, who has the fastest 800 meter time in the state this year. Harris ran in the relay in both the District and Regional meets to ensure that the team moved on, but was held out of the relay at this meet so she could focus on the open 800 meters. So the girls knew they had their work cut out for them if they were to make it onto the podium, but they were focused and determined to medal. Each girl knew what time she had to run and it meant that they all had to either run or come really close to their PR (personal record) split. If they did that, they would run around 10:05. The rst heat winner had run 10:08, so they had to make sure they beat at least one team in their heat and that time. Senior Margaret Wiedeman ran the opening leg and blasted the rst 400 in 1:08, which was too fast, but she had to keep contact with the Bishop Moore runner. Bishop Moore was the school that, on paper, the local girls had to beat to make the top eight. She hung on and nished her leg in 2:31, two seconds faster than her previous best time. Next up was Senior Kayla Webbe who ran an excellent leg, closing signi cantly in the home stretch on the Bishop Moores second leg and had the WHS squad right where they needed to be. She ran her leg in 2:37, a new best time by 5 seconds, but the local squad was still in ninth place. Freshman Haleigh Martin, the fastest girl in the rotation, took the baton next and ran a great leg, running with poise and confidence beyond her years. She nished in the excellent time of 2:22, 3 seconds faster than her previous best, and had passed two girls ahead of her and put the WHS girls in sixth place. The anchor leg was run by junior Lydia Wiedeman, who is known for not only her times, but also for her heart and determination. Wiedeman ran hard and fought the whole way, nishing in 2:28, which is right at her best relay split, and lost one place to the anchor from West Florida Tech, but held the gap on the other two pursuing teams (Gulliver Prep, Bishop Moore) and nished in seventh place securing WHSs rst-ever podium nish for a relay team at the State Meet! The girls ran a State Elite time of 9:59.75, the second fastest relay time ever for a WHS girls team. The boys high jump competition had also started at 9 a.m. and continued on through worsening weather conditions and heavier rain. Coming into the meet, Corion Knight and Keith Gavin were ranked one and two in the state in 2A and they showed why. The wet track caused a lot of slipping and anxious moments for the jumpers. The meet quickly became, basically, a repeat of the Regional Meet, as the rst four jumpers were from Region 2. Gavin had earned the Regional championship in a jump off with Knight and this meet was headed in the same direction. The Trinity Christian and Rutherford jumpers cleared 6 but went out at 6. Knight and Gavin were the only two jumpers to clear 6 and they knew then that they would end up first and second, the only question that remained, was what the nal order would be. Both had cleared 6 this season, but the conditions made it clear that that probably wasnt going to happen Friday. Neither jumper cleared the next height of 6 and Knight was awarded the State Championship, based on fewer misses, and Gavin was the State Runner-up, for the second consecutive year. Knight had also qualified in the long jump and went on place 7th in that event. The nal race of the day for the local team was the girls 800 meters, which included WHSs Madison Harris, arguably the top 800 meter runner in the state. At the gun, last years state champion, Daesha Rogers from Miami Jackson, blasted to an early lead and held it for the rst 400 meters. Bolles High School runner Caitlyn Collier locked into second place with Harris tucked into fourth. Harris passed the rst split in 1:05, which was right where she had planned on being. The pack closed on Rogers down the backstretch, with Collier sweeping past her with about 150 meters to go, and the race was on. Harris and a Ransom Everglades runner made their moves just a little later and also passed a fading Rogers. Then Harris set her sights on Collier, who fought valiantly down the homestretch. Harris and Collier battled head to head the last 50 meters and Collier was able to hold on just enough to deny Harris her state championship. Collier finished in 2:13.54 and Harris in 2:13.59. Harris just needed about ve more yards of track, but it was a great and exciting race. It was the second consecutive state runner-up title for Harris. This was truly a state meet to remember, said Coach Paul Hoover. To have every athlete who competed at the meet make it onto the podium, including a state champion and two state runner-ups, really just doesnt happen but once in a career. Our kids ignored the conditions and just went out and performed. Coach Gavin has done a great job with Keith and Corion and it showed on Friday. They are exceptional athletes and outstanding young men and have dominated the high jump for the last two years. And our girls just did what they have done all year, they put their heart and souls into their races and ran smart, hard efforts. It would have been nice for Harris to get her championship, but apparently it wasnt in the cards. However, that doesnt diminish in any way all that she has accomplished in the last four years. She is a once in a career type athlete and I know she will be successful at the next level, Hoover said. I am so proud of all of our kids! This is a meet I will remember for the rest of my life. Overall, the girls placed 20th out of 50 scoring teams and the boys (Knight & Gavin) placed 6th, missing the top ve by only two points! This is also the best showing ever by the WHS teams. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSKeith Gavin was state runner-up in high jump, Madison Harris was state runner-up in the 800 meters, and Corion Knight was state champion in the high jump and 7th in the long jump.TRACKA state meet to remember IF WE DONT HAVE IT WE CAN GET IT!

Special to The NewsThe 2nd Annual Big Bend Kayak Classic was held on May 2 and 3 at Three Y Ranch in Crawfordville. The Sponsors came through from all over the region to support Meals-on-Wheels and to keep the services to senior citizens a oat! While the Friday night rains came, it did not dampen the spirits of the 92 anglers from all over the southeastern United States from assembling for a Captains meeting under the arena at the ranch. Food and drinks were plenteous an the anglers left that night after some great food, fun and fellowship, ready to sh Saturday morning. The weather cleared and a great day was had by all anglers. Red sh, Trout and Largemouth Bass were caught in abundance in and around the area of Wakulla County. The tournament is a catch, photo, and release tournament so no sh were killed or harmed during the event. Saturday evening brought the anglers back to the arena where multiple prizes were given away for their attendance! Kayaks were donated as rst place prizes for all categories, including a youth division. Cash and other prizes were given to anglers for second and third place prizes. A Taste of the Bayou low country boil topped off the evening and the anglers left the event and promised to return for the next years 3rd Annual Big Bend Kayak Classic which will be held the first Friday and Saturday of May. The event is planned and prepared by the team members of the Wakulla Senior Citizens Council, however, the event is presented by Kayak Professionals who are sponsored by various kayak manufacturers. Hobie always comes through as the headline sponsor and donates a high-end kayak for the grand slam division winner (longest red sh/trout combo). Maurice Langston, director of the center, said, Its wonderful to see local and regional support caring for the greatest generation of senior citizens in Wakulla County. Our sponsors take their efforts personal and they know they are taking care of the generation of people who took care of them and feeding those who have fed them and have made this county the great county that it is today. National sporting good chains gave of their resources, however, most resources for the event came from local help and loving hearts. Not one sponsor said no to supporting meals-on-wheels, according to Langston. Many cuts in federal and state programs have taken their toll on senior citizens and while many counties are having to step back on services, Wakulla County is kicking up its services to senior citizens. A big thank you to our sponsors and a great thank you goes out to all of Wakulla County. We live in the most blessed and best county in the region, second to none, said Langston.

By BRANDON LARABEE and DARA KAMTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 3 In some ways, it was a session of the unexpected. When lawmakers decamped to Tallahassee at the beginning of March, the agenda was full of conservative red meat. Taxes and fees would be slashed by $500 million. The states de facto school-vouchers program would be expanded. Military veterans would be given benefits in something dubbed the Florida GI Bill. Publicemployee pensions would be overhauled. And, if all went well, Gov. Rick Scott would be placed on a glide path to re-election. Most of those things happened though, it should be noted, the pension changes went down in ames. Some of them happened in an unexpected way, such as the voucher expansion, which seemed dead 12 hours before it was revived. But other items that werent on the radar or at best looked like long shots before the Legislature was gaveled into session in March ended up headed to Scotts desk by the time of the Legislatures traditional adjournment sine die. Some undocumented immigrants will be able to pay in-state tuition at Florida colleges and could become eligible to practice law in the state. And Republicans furiously ghting against a constitutional amendment that would allow the use of marijuana for medical problems backed a proposal that would give access to a noneuphoric version of the drug to rein in frequent seizures. Scott said he would sign those measures. Other issues of interest mostly to Adams Street insiders and the most politically active citizens also moved through. Under one bill, the 2016 session will begin in January, as long as Scott approves, allowing Tallahasseebound reporters to head to spring training games and lawmakers to get back home and start raising money. Or they could enjoy a spring weekend at the beach instead of in the Capitols Knott Building. Under another measure, voters will decide this fall whether outgoing governors should replace retiring Supreme Court justices when theyre leaving of ce at the same time. As for Scotts re-election polls are all over the map. Former Gov. Charlie Crist, the most likely Democratic nominee, is ahead by a lot, or a little, or in a dead heat with his successor, depending on which survey you prefer. Scott has already spent what Democrats estimate to be about $20 million on campaign ads, but if he reaches his self-identi ed fundraising goal for the election, theres $80 million more where that came from. And most Floridians are either just beginning to tune into the contest or waiting for a few more months before they make up their minds. Which means that the election this fall could be like the session that just ended: some things predictable, some things unexpected and an interesting ride all the way to the end. 2014 WORK PLAN: NOT ACCORDING TO PLAN For the second year in a row, House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, and Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, touted their ability to compromise and reach a joint work plan for their chambers a shared agenda meant to serve as a contrast to the often-toxic relationship between their predecessors, former House Speaker Dean Cannon and former Senate President Mike Haridopolos. For the second year in a row, the document included changes to the Florida Retirement System as one of its components. And for the second year in a row, the work plan was largely a success except for the FRS changes. Gaetz said afterward that the two leaders won approval for about 4.3 of their ve work plan entries. The failure of the pension overhaul was particularly frustrating for Weatherford, who was the primary force behind overhauling the retirement system for hundreds of thousands of state and county employees. On Wednesday, Weatherford wasnt quite ready to concede defeat on the initiative but was already eulogizing the plan, which went through multiple versions as lawmakers looked for the combination that could pass the Senate. Weve always known that it wasnt going to be an easy lift, he said. Another one of Weatherfords work-plan priorities came down to the very end, when a drive to expand eligibility for the states de facto voucher program passed in the waning hours of the session. The plan appeared dead on Thursday evening after Democrats used a procedural move to block it on the Senate oor. But Republicans revived it Friday morning, tacking it onto another education measure (SB 850). That bill passed only to twice be put on hold in the House, as lawmakers discussed whether to take off language dealing with diplomas for students with disabilities, an issue that was a priority of Sen. Andy Gardiner, an Orlando Republican who will take over from Gaetz following the November elections. Ultimately, the House let the measure pass unchanged. Other work-plan priorities including increasing bene ts for veterans, slashing taxes and fees by $500 million and improving state services for the elderly and children proved easier to pass, usually by broad, bipartisan margins. While theres dysfunction in Washington, D.C., and other states around the country, you showed that we could put policy above politics. We could put Florida above politics. And we can pass a signi cant work plan that changes the way that our state grows and changes the way that we prosper, Weatherford said after the session ended. TRYING TO REGAIN INNOCENTS Gaetz and Weatherford had already agreed to focus on reforming the child welfare system as part of the work plan when The Miami Herald began running Innocents Lost, a scathing series of articles documenting 477 child deaths over six years. On the last day of the session, lawmakers approved a far-reaching bill designed to revamp Floridas child welfare system, which had drawn legislative scrutiny over child deaths even before the Heralds reporting. The measure (SB 1666) passed both chambers unanimously, accompanied by $47 million in new funding for child protection. I believe that this legislation includes provisions that will require information about the tragedy of children dying and make that information available, Gaetz said. The measure was linked to a sweeping human traf cking bill (HB 7141), and both were collaborations by the House Healthy Families Subcommittee and the Senate Children, Families and Elder Affairs Committee. Funding for the bills is linked, also. The biggest item is for child protective investigators, with $18.5 million for 191 positions at the Department of Children and Families and $8 million for the six county sheriffs of ces that conduct investigations. The goal is to reduce investigator caseloads. GOING TO POT The Republican-dominated Legislature doesnt like pot. At least, not until this year, when, in an amazing turnaround, legislators gave overwhelming support to a medical marijuana proposal Scott has said he will sign. The proposal deals with a strain of marijuana that is low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) but high in cannabidiol (CBD). The strain, known as Charlottes Web, is supposed to dramatically reduce life-threatening seizures in children with a rare-form of epilepsy but has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Holley and Peyton Moseley a Panhandle couple who enlisted the support of Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Fort Walton Beach Republican who just happens to be the Senate presidents son led the charge on the issue on behalf of their adopted daughter RayAnn and about 150,000 other Florida families they say can bene t from the lowTHC marijuana.

Ben had been widowed for nearly 20 years and had lived alone in the house where he and Judith had raised their boy, John. Hed had a lot of health problems, there at the last, too. Things werent easy for him. Sometimes when a guy is in that shape, people nod and smile slightly at his passing and say, Well, in a way its a blessing, isnt it. But not with old Ben. Theres the sailboat, you see. After Judith died and Judith was the most practical woman in town Ben started buying and reading magazines about sailboats. Then he cut the front off the barn/garage out in back, and began building one. He drew crowds with his work for a while. Everyone stopped by from time to time, and we all know it is to be 32 feet long and a gaff-rigged not Marconi-rigged sloop. Said they look more like real sailboats. Eccentric? Well, maybe. Eccentricities last a year or two, but a 20-year project is a lot closer to being an obsession. When Ben could afford more of the special wood he was using, he bought it. Sometimes all hed get were some of those little brass whatchits to put along the side. But each time something came, there was work going on out in that garage. Ben took pride in the project being pay-as-you-go, so he wouldnt owe anybody when he nally put it in the ocean. Ben died before that happened, and that saddened us greatly. We might chuckle a bit behind his back, but we also secretly envied him and admired him for building that boat. After Ben passed, his son John brought his wife and children to live in the little house. After a few weeks, we heard activity out in the garage, and we found John working on his dads boat. It would, he said, eventually sail. There is no statute of limitations on dreams. Brought to you by the new CD Having Fun in New Mexico, Fifteen stories by Slim Randles. www.slimrandles.com.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 8, 2014 Page 5BFrom Previous PageScott said he will sign the proposal (SB 1030), though the governor failed to limit the bill as he had hoped. The governor wanted to only allow patients involved in clinical trials to have access to the marijuana, usually administered in paste or oil form. IMMIGRATING TO A NEW POSITION For years, Florida Republicans have found strong opposition to illegal immigration -and anything that might encourage it -safe political ground. Scott himself got elected in part by labeling then-Attorney General Bill McCollum insufficiently tough on illegal immigration during the 2010 GOP primary. Then came the Mitt Romney wipeout in 2012, when Latinos helped propel President Barack Obamas re-election victory nationwide and in Florida. Suddenly, insiders from Washington, D.C., to Tallahassee were looking for new ways to appeal to Hispanic voters, many of whom viewed anti-illegal immigration rhetoric as a window into an anti-Latino mindset among some in the GO In Florida, Republicans settled on two proposals: One that would allow undocumented immigrants brought to America as children to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities, and another paving the way for an undocumented immigrant to practice law in Florida. In perhaps the highest-profile turnaround, Scott has promised to sign both bills, and in particular championed the tuition legislation, which also does away with the ability of most state universities to request tuition increases from the Florida Board of Governors without legislative approval. (The University of Florida and Florida State University will keep that authority, but at a much lower level.) STORY OF THE WEEK: The Legislature adjourned its 2014 session at 10:40 p.m. Friday, setting the stage for the November elections. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Ive been wrongly accused, Ive been left on Death Row and had one hour to die in the electric chair, and I prayed to fulll my need. Sometimes my fellow men have let me down, but God have lift(ed) me up. James Joseph Richardson, 78-year-old man who could nally receive payment for the 21 years he wrongly served in prison after his seven children died of poisoning. The Legislature approved a bill allowing him to apply for compensation.Roundup: Sine die 2013 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report City of SopchoppyWere pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from seven wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Leonard Tartt with the City of Sopchoppy at (850) 962-4611. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 100 Municipal Avenue, Sopchoppy, Florida. In 2013 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are ten potential sources of contamination identied for this system with low to moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state..us/swapp or they can be obtained from Leonard Tartt, Public Works Director at the City of Sopchoppy. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Sopchoppy is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by ushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also, come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. The City of Sopchoppy routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In the table to the right, you may nd unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following denitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reect the benets of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (Ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results/from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at the City of Sopchoppy would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. 2013 TEST RESULTS TABLEMAY 8, 2014
