Here is a shot of glass-smooth water with a view of a tidal marsh. Steve Fults is candidate for county commissionSpecial to The NewsSteve Fults from Ochlockonee Bay rounds out a eld of four candidates in the race for county commission District 4 race. He will be in the Republican primary election on Aug. 26 and faces the incumbent Jerry Moore. Fults says he will only serve one fouryear term if elected. As an engaged citizen for many years, Fults feels policymakers often make biased decisions simply to stay in office, especially as elections roll around. There is no doubt about it, if you want to get re-elected you cant upset your base, Fults says. Actually, its essential to cater to them to get re-elected. Many times thats just not in the best interest of the citizens. Ill make every decision based on whats best for our citizens and not any special interest group. If youre working on getting re-elected, you just cant help but to lose focus on doing the work of the people and I dont want to lose that focus, he says. Having real term limits is essential to getting our system back on the track of prosperity for all and it has to start somewhere, so Ive made the commitment. Fults elected to run in the primary rather than the now common practice of running as a No Party Af liation candidate. By running NPA, a candidate does not face an opponent(s) in a primary. They are placed on the general election ballot automatically. I feel strongly District 4 has been both under and mis-represented, Fults said. Someone needed to step-up and do something about xing the problems were facing. Im really good at xing problems and helping people, so Ill start at the beginning with a primary election. Being a Republican following in the footsteps of great men like Roosevelt and Reagan, I asked myself what would they do and then I did it. As a small business owner in the manufacturing sector, Fults company produces various machined components and assemblies primarily for the elevator, automotive, and prototyping industries. Taking raw materials and converting them into nished goods, he competes worldwide and understands efciency is the key to being successful.

According to a report from the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce, 71-year-old Marvin McKenzie suffered a fractured nose, rib injuries and lacerations when the attempted robber beat him with a makeshift club on his right hand. McKenzie, who was alone in his store, said the suspect rst entered the establishment and bought a beer from him at the counter, left the store, and came back few minutes later, saying he forgot something. McKenzie said the suspects hand was wrapped with what he thinks was the Natural Light tallboy he had sold him, to make a club. McKenzie said he was standing only a few feet from the front door himself when the suspect returned. When McKenzie turned back toward counter, he said the suspect charged and started hitting him, I dont know how many times.Turn to Page 3 By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netOnce again, the 1st District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee ruled against Wakulla commercial shermen, this time nding that the trial judge erred when nding that rules on mullet nets were unfair and produced a legal absurdity in their application. In a 12-page ruling released on Monday, July 7, the three judge panel unanimously found that all of the matters before the trial court had been tried and judged in earlier cases. The trial courts ruling, however well-intentioned it might have been, was erroneous, the appeal court found. Im not happy with it, said Panacea businessman Ronald Fred Crum, who heads the Wakulla Fishermens Association. I think its politics over law. Crum said fishermen from around the state had a meeting planned for Tuesday, July 8, to talk about what to do. They could ask for a reconsideration by the appeal court or try to appeal it t the Florida Supreme Court. Since the 1994 passage of the constitutional amendment that limited net shing the so-called net ban commercial shermen have been trying to get a mullet net case to the Florida Supreme Court. Despite winning many of their challenges at the trial court level, and losing a couple, they have never managed to get past the 1st District Court of Appeal. In the current case, Crum and shermen Keith Ward and Jonas Porter challenged rules that required mullet shermen to use nets with meshes no larger than two-inches stretched, contending the small mesh size captured only juvenile sh and that violated the intent of the amendment, which is to protect saltwater sh from overharvest, unnecessary killing and waste. The state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission contended the amendment outlawed gill nets in state waters, and the two-inch rule on mesh size was intended to be a bright line to distinguish legal nets.

Page 2 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 10, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com NICOLE ZEMAStaff ReportPainting the lion statue in Crawfordvilles Azalea Park has become a Wakulla County tradition. Organizations and artists usually apply festive and colorful designs, often correlating with national holidays. But its latest theme created a stir over the Fourth of July weekend when an artist painted Confederate ags on the local landmark. Helen Gunn, who coordinates the painting of the lion, said she had been contacted by an artist about painting the lion blue with red and white stars on it. That sounded OK to me, Gunn said in an email. I didnt think she would paint a Confederate flag. In my mind, I pictured stars and stripes for Independence Day. It is not my intention to offend anyone. The lion has always had a fun theme to it. While the ag represents Southern pride and heritage to some, others see it as an unwelcoming symbol of the Souths racist history. County Administrator David Edwards said, We will be taking action though to try and setup a more formal approval process, or move the lion from the park. The ag could be seen by everyone who drove US 319 Monday morning. By lunchtime, someone had taped a trashbag over the symbol. The image was covered with gray paint by the end of the day. Vandalism or expression?The lion statue at Azalea Park wore a garbage bag Monday afternoon after Confederate ags were painted on it over the holiday weekend. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.comWhile Wakulla Senior Center friend-raiser Jerry Evans is gearing up for Christmas in July, he is also applying his banking knowledge to ensure that the center can serve needs in the community for a long time to come. Evans was hired as the centers fundraising coordinator in May, after a career in community relations at an area bank. The transition has been good, Evans said. Im doing what I know, Evans said. Getting out seeing people, attending events and getting deep into the community. I am familiar with the senior center and people over here. I am also a musician, and played here a lot. Evans expects to see even more familiar faces this month at the 19th annual Christmas in July fundraising luncheon, scheduled at noon, Wednesday, July 23 at the center. Evans said people are expected to arrive at 11:15 to get a rst look at the silent auction items. There will also be a raf e. The fare tastes like Christmas turkey and dressing with all the trimmings. The dining hall will look like Christmas too, with trees and decorations. The whole works, Evans said. Were looking for a good crowd, and always have a great response. Christmas in July is the largest fundraiser of the year for the senior center, with much of proceeds going toward the Meals on Wheels program. Evans said the meals programs lls a great, great need for local residents. He said while the Area Agency on Aging in Tallahassee helps with nancing Meals on Wheels, the funding usually runs out by summertime, which is why the Christmas in July luncheon is vital to its operation. Typically by this time, they are out of money, Evans said. Everything else depends on fundraising and donations. Businesses can buy a table at two levels: A table for eight is $1,000, and a table for four is $500. Individual tickets are $50. Tickets may be bought in advance at the center, or at the door on July 23. Businesses donate items for themed baskets and gift cards in the raf e and silent auction, which also generates revenue to feed the homebound community members. Evans said in the rst two weeks of his new gig, it was a priority to learn all of the Senior Centers services, Not just for seniors but for community as whole, he said. Its incredible. As long as I have lived in county, I confess I did not realize what all they do here, and how many services they provide. In one of his rst orders of business, Evans structured a presentation on all the services the center provides for the county, to educate the public on what its all about. This is not just a place where seniors play cards, Evans said. They do that, but its so much more. I felt the need to educate the county to raise awareness and let them appreciate what this place does, and educate people about bringing funds into the center. He said people are more apt to partner with the Senior Center when they realize that approximately 4,000 pounds is distributed of food every week through various programs like Second Harvest and the Mobile Food Pantry. About 900-1000 meals a month are distributed through Meals on Wheels and for center congregates. Seniors needs are met on other levels too, including legal, medical, psychological and educational services; exercise classes, arts and crafts. The Senior Center covers all the needs emotional, educational, physical and mental, Evans said. What it provides for seniors is huge. After putting together a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation, Evans spoke at the Rotary and Optimist Clubs. The response has been really good, he said. Evans said cash donations can be given directly to center. A pledge program is also available, so generous people on a budget can donate smaller denominations like $10 or $50 a month, debited directly from an account. Evans said he also wants to focus on endowment fund with the community foundation in Tallahassee, who handles the investments, accounting and IRS reporting for the senior center. We want to build endowment fund to point where interest pays for services, Evans said. And provide a long term stable source of revenue for years and years to come. Wed never touch the principal. The interest grows, and we would use that to pay for services. Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas... in JulyWILLIAM SNOWDEN/FILE PHOTOJerry Evans Santa visits with participants in last years Christmas in July event at the Wakulla County Senior Center.

JULY 10, 2014 000IQ3R From Front Page When talking about taxes, hes frustrated that the typical government answer to We want to lower taxes is usually: Okay, then tell us what services you want to cut? In my world, every day I have work hard to reduce company expenditures and improve our products, Fults says. Its the only way to stay competitive and pro table. Theres absolutely no reason why government cant lower taxes and provide more services, we all know how inef cient government is. He feels much of the waste is due to pork and perks going to special interests, often necessary to get re-elected. Its a vicious cycle that needs to be broken with a major paradigm shift. One of his passions is being an active volunteer firefighter and First Responder with Wakulla County Fire Rescue. There is absolutely nothing more rewarding and worthwhile than helping someone, especially when theyre in desperate need of assistance, he says. The feeling is just unbelievable. He is also the current President of the Ochlockonee Bay Volunteer Fire Department. Station 7 is very involved with the community. Were blessed to have the FireBelles who always do an outstanding job of hosting social dinners at our station so folks can come gather to enjoy fun, food, and fellowship. Another topic that brings a smile to Fults face is the Warriors & Quiet Waters Foundation Southern Chapter. As a founding member, he along with several other community leaders organized the second chapter of this very accomplished charity that originated in Bozeman, Mont. The organization takes injured soldiers and helps them transition from the hospital environment back into daily life by teaching them fly-fishing. Dr.Volney Steele, a founding member from Bozeman, moved to Wakulla County for retirement and just happened to purchase a home across the street from Fults. When we saw the wonderful things they had done in Montana, we decided to take action and establish a local chapter using their model, except our brave soldiers go shing in the Gulf where the real sh are! Fults says with a chuckle. Seriously though, the volunteers and contributors to this group are simply amazing people and I thank them all for their extremely hard work. Its so rewarding to give back, as little as it may be, to those who keep our freedoms alive by sacri cing so very, very much. When it comes to the elderly, he feels we need to better realize how much they have to offer our society. Ive been fortunate to have traveled overseas on business a great deal. Most every other culture Ive visited holds their elderly in the very highest regard, theyre revered by everyone, as it should be. But for some reason here in this country, we dont seem to have the same level of reverence, which I simply dont understand. The wealth of knowledge, life experiences, and contributions theyve made needs to be better recognized and rewarded by our culture. No disrespect to my peers and younger friends, but the wisdom elders impart is beyond compare. There is no doubt about Fults commitment when it comes to children and youth. I was very fortunate to grow up in a traditional and functional family, he says. Im afraid today its harder to nd such families for various reasons. The bottom line is our children are our future and we need to do all we can to show them the correct and moral path to being a good citizen. Fults feels that between the ages of roughly 8 and 14 our youth will pick one of two paths. We need to develop strategies, now more than ever, to steer them onto the correct citizenship path. Building costly jails is obviously not a solution anyone wants to see, he says. Wisely investing in our youth by promoting volunteerism and a clear sense of community seems far more prudent for our collective future. A native of California, Fults has lived in Wakulla for 10 years. Hes been married for 29 years to the love of his life since high school, Debra Sue. They first met over Citizens Band radio, back in the 1970s when CBs were all the craze. Stefani, his daughter, is now 28 with a degree in biology and lives in Virgina. Son Steven, 24, is wrapping up his degree from EmbryRiddle University and lives in Ochlockonee Bay. Fults mother Sandra alternates living between Sun City Center and Ochlockonee Bay. He says shes a huge in uence in his life and credits her for being his guiding light. One thing I know for absolutely sure, Im the luckiest man on the planet to have such a wonderful and loving family, he says. Without them Im nothing, nothing at all. A good friend of mine says there are Doers and there are Stoppers in this world and I totally agree, says Fults. The key is knowing when to be a Doer and when to be a Stopper because clearly some things need doing and some things need stopping. I think one of my best character traits is that I have an excellent sense of what to do and what to stop. But what Fults really prides himself on is being trustworthy. Anyone who knows me knows how seriously I take trust and the truth. Trust is paramount to a harmonious society, for without it were all skeptics. Im never afraid to speak the truth, even if it ruf es a few feathers occasionally. The old adage The truth hurts is often true. I feel that without trust and truth, we have nothing. He says hes never afraid to admit a mistake due to his late fathers upbringing. I was taught very early on that when you make a mistake, you rst have to admit it. Next, you try to x it as best you can and apologize to those affected. Unfortunately, sometimes it cant be xed, those really hurt. Then, you move on learning from it, hopefully never to repeat it again. Another character trait that Fults feels is important for public service is his very thick skin. You cant offend me, he says. I take virtually every criticism constructively, its just the way I am. I take criticism and learn from it rather than get offended. Fults also feels that along with thick skin, his ability to let bygones be bygones is very important in public service. Holding a grudge is just plain counterproductive to me, he says. Holding a grudge in public service is much worse because it usually results in harming the citizens theyre supposed to serve. I focus on issues and solving problems rather than exercising some type payback or revenge due to a previous disagreement or personal matter. Simple as that. All and all, Fults says he knows there are candidates running beyond the primary. Hes looking forward to hopefully sharing with the community his proven leadership and problem solving abilities to help lead Wakulla county into a prosperous future for generations to come.Steve Fults is candidate for county commission, District 4Glendas Store owner beaten during robberyFrom Front PageThe attack went on for about 30 seconds, until McKenzie said he could see a shadow out of the corner of his eye, and knew someone was approaching. The guy had the register in his hand and was trying to get it open, McKenzie said. But he dropped the register when he saw Randy. Crawfordville resident Randy Merritt, who happens to be a county commissioner, entered the store to make a purchase at 9:30 p.m. That is when he saw the suspect coming around the counter. Randy heard big bam, and the guy went to the door, grabbed Randy, and told Randy to come in here, McKenzie said. Randy got away from him, and by that time I got on my feet, got my .38, and headed toward the door. Merritt immediately ran away to call 911. The report described the suspect at a 6-foot2-inch black male in his 50s. I would have been on the short end of a st ght with him, Merritt said. The suspects face was not covered. The WCSO said he has yet to be identi ed, but he did leave DNA at the scene. McKenzie said the suspect was about 20 feet from him outside after Merritt caused the distraction. At that time I threw pistol up and said, You forgot something, McKenzie said. He twisted around, saw the pistol, ran to his car and left. The incident report said the suspect ed, heading north to Leon County in a red Dodge. The suspect did not get money or steal items from the store. Law enforcement in Leon County, and local deputies, are on the lookout for the suspect, and might be able to identify him soon. The investigation is ongoing. If it hadnt been for Randy, I dont know what he would have done, McKenzie said. McKenzie said the suspect walked over to the reworks stand before the assault in the store, perhaps to rob the guys running the stand. McKenzie said it was clear in his mind that one is not supposed to shoot if a suspect is leaving, but he hopes the suspect does not go on to harm someone else. If he put himself in that position, he has no rights, McKenzie said. McKenzie is back at work, but pretty banged up. He underwent a CT scan at the hospital following the assault, There were a lot of gashes and gouges, and my ribs are messed up, McKenzie said. But Im heading back upright. He said it is time to install security cameras in the parking lot, but McKenzie said he will not hire a seurity guard. Im gonna be the security guard, and carry (my pistol) with me, McKenzie said. I dont have the same outlook anymore. If they come back again, Im gonna reach for it.

Letters are edited for style, length and clarity.READERS WRITE: Editor, The News: The information in last weeks published correction regarding candidate Steve Cushmans military service record and collegiate status caught my attention. There being no attribution, I took it upon myself to consider the matter on my own. To get a complete picture, I compared the language in the correction with a copy of Cushmans December 2013 application for employment as a professor of aquaculture at Tallahassee Community College, and reviewed previous articles in The Wakulla News. Although the language in the correction is highly ambiguous, one could reasonably read it to mean that he was honorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force about a month after graduation from college. In that connection, readers of The Wakulla News (March 26, 2014) may recall that in his announcement as a candidate for county commissioner, he was referenced as a former Air Force pilot (supported on Facebook at the time). In his application for the position of professor of aquaculture at TCC, he did not claim a veterans preference. He never indicated in his record of employment that he had ever been employed in or affiliated with any branch of the U.S. armed forces, or that he had ever been on active duty. One can surmise that he was at one time a cadet in a school-af liated ROTC program. Yet should he have dropped out of college, it is unlikely he was ever commissioned as an of cer. Absent a DD Form 214, it cannot be determined with certainty if Cushman is the honorably discharged veteran he claims to be. I leave it to the readers to draw their own conclusions regarding his veracity. But there is no such ambiguity regarding his assertion in the correction that he graduated from college. In his application for the position of professor of aquaculture at TCC, he indicated that he received a high school diploma from Denton High School. He did not indicate that he had any post-secondary education. His application further indicated that he took classes in psychology and aerospace. He did not claim any credit hours for these classes, nor did he indicate that he ever earned any academic degree. Without further references, and taking the whole of the matter into consideration, one might reasonably conclude that he never graduated from the University of North Texas or any other degree granting institution. This is interesting because, if what Cushman says is true, he may be the rst person in history to have been an Air Force pilot without actually being in the military, and he may be the rst person in scholastic history to be hired as a professor of aquaculture teaching at a state college whose only academic quali cation is a high school diploma. Palmer CarrCrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Comments have been made relative to the collection of petitions by the Wakulla Wetland Alliance (WWA) in the vicinity of U.S. Post Of ces. According to the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations 39 C.F.R. Section 232.1 (a) (ii) restrictions on collecting petition signatures do not apply to . . sidewalks along the street frontage of postal property falling within the property lines of the Postal Service that are not physically distinguishable from adjacent municipal or other public sidewalks, and any paved areas adjacent to such sidewalks that are not physically distinguishable from such sidewalks. Also, according to C.F.R. Section 232.1 (h) it is permissible to solicit petition signatures on some other Post Of ce properties but it is not permissible to collect the signatures themselves. The WWA fully complied with all applicable laws and regulations in the collection of petition signatures in the vicinity of U.S. Post Of ces and elsewhere. Victor W. Lambou Chairman Wakulla Wetland AllianceEditor, The News:This past week, during our Independence Day celebration, someone painted a Confederate ag on the lion in Azalea Park. While some may view this ag as homage to an honorable heritage, others view it as offensive and racially charged. Individuals have the right to their personal opinions, but, our Constitution and laws guarantee racial equality. While, in a public park, where everyone is free to assemble and exercise their First Amendment right, no one has the right to use public property, such as the lion, to express offensive or hateful views. Painting a divisive symbol on public property undermines the freedoms on which our country is founded. When an incident which attacks these guaranteed freedoms occurs on public property in a community, everyones freedoms are assaulted and we must speak out against it. At a time when we are celebrating the birth of our nation, lets celebrate the freedoms and rights the Founding Fathers signed in the Declaration of Independence. Above all, lets work toward unifying our community, not dividing it. Bill Anderson Ochlockonee BayCounty Commission Candidate Editor, The News: As a citizen of Wakulla County, I have a few concerns and thoughts that I would like to share with the public. One, the realignment of U.S. Highways 319 and 98 to send all trafc in front of the high school. Right now, the traffic stops in Medart, away from the high school, at a stop sign and has a safe, easy ow. Florida Department of Transportation will spend millions of tax dollars to put a light in front of our high school and increase the traf c count by over 11,700 extra cars a day in front of the high school. Where is the safety study that supports this plan? Second, the wetlands. Property rights are the reason that we should keep our local wetland protections. Without these protections in place, ooding is more likely to occur, no matter where you live. Also, the entire county could face higher insurance rates. Our county is only receiving a 15 percent credit, when up to 45 percent is available. We cannot continue to degrade Florida. People now realize, and science has proven, that filling wetlands with soil, and then building on them, is a bad idea. Wetlands save millions of dollars through erosion control, reduce ood damage and pollution abatement. We can develop without decline. Third, the candidates. I am thrilled to see such ne people as Steve Fults, Bill Anderson and Taylor Phillips running for our county commission! All are so quali ed and respected. Steve Fults, a successful business owner for over 30 years and who gives back to our community with his volunteerism. Bill Anderson, a graduate from law school and a successful corporate attorney and past general council of an S&P 500 company. And Taylor Phillips, a chaplain and mental health counselor who understands the need for transparency in government and who wants Wakulla to be more prosperous. I do not remember a time when we had such a qualified base to run for county commissioner. In summary, please ask candidates how they feel about the realignment of 319 and 98 bringing over 15,000 cars a day in front of our high school. Current commissioners still can have input. Ask candidates how they feel about the safety of our property rights, our wetlands, our drinking water, and our current way of life. And please read about and welcome Mr. Fults, Mr. Anderson and Mr. Phillips. Candidates for the people.

Grants were written, donations collected and we now have three acre site on the waterfront next to Woolley Park that includes two houses with workshops below. There is also an existing dock we plan to improve for a kayak/canoe launch. The recently reconstituted board of Florida Foresight provides the governance for the Maritime Center and the county provides the maintenance. To date, the Maritime Center has offered two main services to the Wakulla community with 100 percent of the funds earned from these two efforts now go directly into the materials needed for the activities and the center (no salaries): 1. Boat Building Course We build six small craft and restore one boat each year as we teach young and old the skills they will need to build boats. This past summer local merchants and business people came together to fund six scholarships to our Youth Boat Building Summer Camps. 2.Maritime/Seafood Festival Each October the Maritime Center brings together vendors, craft people, and education providers in a combination of fun, food, tours, and hands on learning experiences. This years festival is planned for Oct. 11. The folks on the Board want to move forward and the next phase of the plan calls for the Maritime Center to provide displays, courses, and activities that help folks learn the history and culture of the Big Bends maritime and seafood industry. This requires that we design curriculum and build interactive displays. First, though, we have to improve the facility and bring it up to ADA and museum standards. We are currently developing partnerships that will help us with this mission. What we need most right now is a few good people that can commit to being directly involved in the work to make this dream a reality. Our Board meets the third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at TCC Wakulla in Crawfordville. Please drop by and visit or contact me at the addresses below. The Maritime Center will never come about without the people in Wakulla County involved! Sincerely,Roger Pinholster, Ed.D.President Florida Foresight

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, (850) 926-0919 ext. 706.Volunteer sought for committee 1st DCA rules against shermenFrom Front Page Then-Wakulla Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford, who took an unusual step during the trial of going out on a boat with fishermen to see the nets deployed, found the rules were unfair and went so far as to enjoin enforcement of the net ban amendment and prevent the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission from adopting rules on gill nets. Part of what Judge Fulford hinged her ruling on was nding that there were new facts that had not been considered in past net cases, namely a study on two-inch nets that showed a 98 percent bycatch rate for juvenile and unwanted sh species. The larger nets were more selective in their catch. In its ruling, the appeal court ruled that The trial court recognized that these rules, and the underlying constitutional provision, have been previously challenged and upheld, and that the prior decisions reviewed similar matters. Although the trial court acknowledged that It would be much easier to simply deny (the shermen) any relief and say, You have previously had your day in court, the trial court rejected the (FWCs) contention that the matters had all been settled by past court rulings. So the judge determined the rules were fundamentally unfair and, as a court of equity, set out to at least attempt to abate the unfairness. But the appeal court found that a judge is bound by past decisions, and quoted from a ruling in a different case: Unfortunately, neither the ground of fairness nor the ground of benevolence and compassion... constitute a lawful, cognizable basis for granting relief to one side to the detriment of the other. Crum said he believes the purpose of the FWCs rules is to remove mullet shermen from the water. I think theyre after a genocide of these people and theyre probably gonna get that, he said, adding: The black man had to ride on the back of the bus for 100 years until he got his freedom.

Host Pastor is Elder Alfred Nelson. Staff reportsChurch BriefsBy JAMES L. SNYDERI must confess to a severe case of poverty. I never took a vow of poverty; it just seems to have worked out that way for me. I am so poor the church mice have packed their bags and moved on. If I knew where they moved to, I might join them. Being poor can have its advantages, but I have yet to run across any. I am so poor I am not able to pay attention, especially when watching some television program with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. This has caused no small problem with my wife. We love an evening of unwinding before the TV watching some of our favorite programs. I must confess those programs are getting less and less each year. Soon we are going to have to go back to reading books. Together we will be watching a program, and when I say we, I do it with certain modications. My wife will get up and go to the kitchen for something and when she returns, she asks me a question, What happened? I look at her with one of my infamous quizzical looks and respond, Where? She then explains she is talking about what happened on the TV program while she was away. I then tell her, Im sorry, I wasnt paying attention. If you cant afford to pay attention, she will say sarcastically while rolling her eyes, couldnt you at least rent some attention some time? I tried explaining to her that old age is making me a little more forgetful. She, however, is not buying it. For me, watching television is not an obsession, its more like a distraction. I do not follow every little bit on the television screen. For me it is not a matter of life or death, it is just a matter of recreation. When something does catch my attention, boy does it have my attention. Did you, I ask my wife, hear that? Then it is role reversal in prime time. I will not say she acts like me, just that it comes pretty close to it. Not quite Oscar material, but close. What? She said with a very confused look on her face. So I had to explain the news story that I just happened to catch. I do not know all of the details, I was not paying that much attention, just that someone was red from their job for saying to a customer, Have a blessed day. My wife then asked the question I was thinking. What is wrong with telling someone to have a blessed day? I could not gure it out. It is like at Christmas time some places do not want their employees to say to the customer, Merry Christmas. What about we who are offended when somebody does not say Merry Christmas to us? I just would like to meet the person who is offended by somebody saying to them, Have a blessed day. Later that evening I was watching a new crime/detective story on TV and all of a sudden, I heard some words that were offensive. They were saying curse words that I have never heard on TV before. Here is my dilemma. Why can you say curse words on TV, which everybody knows is scripted, but you cannot say, Have a blessed day, without getting red? If I was in business I would want my employees to greet my clients with a cheerful, Have a blessed day and not some awful curse words. I was complaining about this to a friend of mine who explained to me that curse words on television are considered literary license. All of this has to do with the PC syndrome in our country today. The problem is what was PC yesterday is no longer PC today. Who knows what tomorrows PC will be. What I cannot accept is the fact that being crude and rude is PC and saying something nice is not. Have we reverted to the caveman mentality? Is being nice is no longer acceptable behavior? I like what David says, Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name (Psalms 103:1). Perhaps the reason people are offended by that phrase is because they know that only God has the power to bless. If I am being blessed by God, I am going to turn around and bless people around me. So, for those offended by that phrase let me say, Have a blessed day. And re me if you dare.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Scooter Fagan Geraldine Mary Hutchins Futch Tammy V. Sanders Geraldine Mary Hutchins Futch Tammy V. Sanders Charles P. Scooter Fagan By TRACY RENEE LEEOccasionally, I nd letters in my inbox from someone who has read one of my articles. Today was such a day. Hello Tracy, We just lost our dog today in an untimely death/accident. I blame myself, and I feel sick, sad, weak, and Ive been crying most all of today! It hurts so much when you lose a pet. The pain of loss is so unbearable and never-ending. It will always be with me forever and ever. Do you have any grief briefs concerning pet loss that I could read? I will check your blog, thanks for your help. Kelly from Alaska Dear Kelly, I am so sorry to hear of your pets death. I have pets myself, and just cant bear to think of the day that they will die. Although I do not know the circumstances of your pets passing, I wanted to let you know that it is natural to blame yourself when accidents occur. As your pets custodian, you naturally feel responsible when tragedy occurs. Accidents, however, are called accidents for a very speci c reason they are accidental. Even when accidents are caused through carelessness, they are still accidental. Although one may feel a measure of responsibility in the circumstances; unless one purposefully causes the death of a beloved pet, an accident remains an accident. I know this does not take the pain away. I have pets that have passed away, and at times, I will think of things I might have done better, that may have prolonged their lives. Unfortunately, there are no do-overs. I have to realize that I have learned to do better, and in my stewardship over my current pets, I will be more alert and proactive. I am sorry for your loss and know that you will suffer and mull over in your mind the things you wish you had done differently. When this happens, remember the good things you did and the joy you shared with your pet. Eventually, fond memories will override the pain, and you will realize that you are a better person because of the love you shared with your pet, and the lessons you have learned through them. I do not have pet-speci c articles because I specialize in human loss. Loss, however, stretches over all life. Grief is the same whether you have lost a pet or person. The depth of grief is based on the depth of love. I know your heart is full of love and very sad right now. I hope you will mend without complications. Take care and feel free to write me again if you would like.Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer. It is my lifes work to comfort the bereaved and help them live on.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 10, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunitySpecial to The NewsBecton James Roddenberry of Sopchoppy recently returned from Baltimore for his quadrennial conference and recerti cation with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. The conference was held at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center with the University of Maryland Medical Center. At the completion of the conference, the University of Maryland offered Roddenberry a position as a Faculty Member and Instructor with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. Roddenberry accepted the position without hesitation. I am continually showered with blessings from God above! Roddenberry said. I am so very honored and humbled that I have been given this position to teach my passion of trauma medicine to the world. As Faculty of the ACS, Roddenberry will be teaching Advanced Trauma Life Support and Advanced Trauma Care Nursing courses both in the United States and internationally in all continents of the globe. Roddenberrys audience will include Emergency Physicians, General Surgeons, Trauma Surgeons, Surgeon Specialists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, and Emergency/ Trauma Nurses. R. Adams Cowley is considered the father of trauma care and gave the world the concept of the Golden Hour. In emergency medicine, the golden hour (also known as golden time) refers to a time period lasting for one hour following traumatic injury being sustained by a casualty or medical emergency, during which there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical treatment will prevent death. The Shock Trauma Center is the nations first and only integrated Trauma Hospital. The Advanced Trauma Life Support course teaches a systematic, concise approach to the early care of the trauma patient. This course is vital to guiding care for the injured patient in emergency department trauma rooms. ATLS course training provides a common language that can save lives in critical situations. For more than a quarter century, the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma has taught the ATLS course to over 1 million doctors and nurses in more than 50 countries. Roddenberry attended the two day conference and courses continuing his education in the latest advancements and evidence based care in trauma medicine. This was Roddenberrys rst recerti cation as a Certied Advanced Trauma Care Nurse, rst becoming board certi ed in 2010 at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center. Roddenberrys rst appointment to teach courses will be in October at the Lehigh Valley Trauma Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Roddenberry currently works as a Board Certi ed Emergency and Trauma Registered Nurse at the Bixler Trauma & Emergency Center at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Roddenberry is currently a Doctor of Nursing Practice student at Duke University, studying Family Nurse Practitioner and Emergency/ Trauma Nurse Practitioner.Special to The NewsWakulla County Commissioner Ralph Thomas was appointed to the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) Board of Directors by FAC President, Escambia County Commissioner Grover C.

Several basic principles were agreed upon: 1) we will remain true to our name humane animal treatment, 2) we will serve Wakulla animals and citizens and 3) we will increase educational projects within our community. When considering projects for the new year, we re ected on the lessons learned while working with the shelter and managing the adoption center and, of course, the biggest problem locally and across the nation is too many homeless cats and dogs. Each year hundreds of stray and unwanted kittens and cats are taken to the shelter causing a tremendous strain on the shelter staff, budget, resources and foster homes. Many of these cats and kittens are feral cats, also known as community cats. They are not usually candidates for adoption and they are euthanized, which is a nice word for killed. Two of CHATs board members, Jeanette Burdette and Liz Bazzell, had recently been trained at the University of Florida in Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) procedures and recommended and volunteered to manage a TNR program in Wakulla County. Excited about this program, the board established CHATnip as an of cial CHAT project. CHATnip started with a limited budget and we began seeking grants and donations to support the program. We hope to hold a TNR event each month or every other month until Wakulla Countys feral cat population is stabilized. We have no idea how long this will take, but we know it will take years. Even though we have just started with Operation CHATnip here in Wakulla County and we have only done 25-30 cats per spay day, it will only expand from there, Burdette said, who also works locally as a veterinary tech. I have high hopes for the cats in Wakulla County. Burdette said neither animal control, or the cats classi ed as feral, are to blame for putting cats down. It all begins with not spaying or neutering your animals, cats in particular, she said. What we are doing with Operation CHATnip is going to help reduce the feral cat population. By spaying and neutering these cats, they will reproduce no more and continue living their outdoor lives and eventually die off. If we do nothing, then they will continue to multiply. It is the only right thing to do, not to kill them. TNR events are held all over the world and have been proven to be the best way to reduce the feral cat population. A Trap-Neuter-Return program, in a nutshell, consists of rst trapping feral cats, taking the cats in their traps to a veterinarian to be neutered/ spayed, vaccinated and ear-tipped (a universal symbol indicating they have been neutered/spayed) and then returning the cats to their original outdoor home. All cats that are brought into our TNR days must be brought in a special trap, Burdette said. These traps allow us to insert a divider to help get the cat into a smaller area, allowing us to sedate them easier by injection. This is especially important when we have those temperamental and scared cats. We acknowledge there are mixed feelings about feral cats and how they should be dealt with. Cats often receive a bad rap even though they have lived outdoors for more than 10,000 years and are a natural part of our landscape. We humans are a big reason we have a cat overpopulation problem. We fall in love with the little, cute kitten, take it into our home and fail to get it spayed or neutered. A litter is born and when we cant nd them homes, we take them to the shelter or drop them in the woods. Those dropped in the woods become community cats. And, it is not their fault that they end up being a problem. They would much rather be in a safe environment, fed and cared for daily and not left to fend for themselves and get pregnant multiple times a year. If you have an unneutered male, you may be saying I dont have a problem. But, please know that ol Tom is making his rounds and is contributing to the problem as well. With the assistance of local veterinarians Dr Griggs, Dr. Whited, Dr. Hughes, Dr. Skye, Dr. Chalker, several community colony caretakers, and many volunteers, CHAT has conducted two TNR events to date with a total of 44 cats altered. This equates to eliminating upwards to 300 more cats born just this year. We are extremely thankful to Dr. Griggs who provided his facility for the TNR events and to our local veterinarians for volunteering on their day off to perform the surgeries and care for the cats; without their dedication to reducing feral cat reproduction in our community, these events would not be possible. Our next TNR is scheduled for Sunday, July 13. Burdette said volunteers have speci c jobs that they do on our TNR day. A member of the community brings in a feral cat and it is admitted to the hospital by a volunteer, Burdette said. We then have volunteers who tag the traps and put them in a quiet area until the cats have their surgeries. We have medical staff that volunteer including veterinary technicians who help with sedation, surgery prep, surgery, and recovery. All of our veterinarians volunteer their time and medical expertise and perform surgeries, vaccinations, wound treatment, etc. After surgery, monitoring is the most important part of it all and volunteers help assist. Once we complete all surgeries and cats are recovered, they get discharged and instructions to go home. Once all cats have been picked up, then a full clean up takes place of the hospital. Donations to support this program are appreciated. A special thanks to Jude Ann Burk for donating a portion of the sales of her book The Cats of Spring Creek to this program. Judes book is available in Kindle edition from Amazon and is a story about Wakullas very own Spring Creek. We would like to start a Barn Cat Placement Program. We are looking for individuals that have a barn or other secure outdoor structure and are interested in adopting cats from our TNR program. But, to begin this project, we need a volunteer project leader. If you are interested in this role, please e-mail CHATWakulla@yahoo.com.

From xing a jail cell lock to making sure the WCSO roof doesnt leak to keeping a eet of patrol vehicles on the road, Pete Cochran and his crew never have a quiet day. But less than a year ago, Cochran decided to conquer another challenge, only this time it was on a horse. He joined the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association and he reached the top of his division as a state champion at a competition in Headland, Ala. Cochran competes in timed events where he must ride his horse Lulu and navigate a course of barrels while shooting at balloon targets. Petes .45 caliber Ruger blackpowder pistol breaks the balloons as he shoots his rst round and keeps Lulu on track. He is required to switch to the second pistol and shoot the course targets all over again with the second Ruger. Cochran got interested in the sport after helping his wife Katrina shoot and compete. Since that time he has witnessed the growth of the sport and plans to continue to compete at locations in Alabama and Florida. The object of the sport is to nish the course and shoot out the targets in the shortest amount of time possible. With his cowboy hat, twin guns, competition winning belt buckle on display and holster strapped on his body, Sheriff Charlie Creel couldnt resist saying hello by using his newest moniker, Pistol Pete. www.WakullaDiving.com Wakulla Diving Center, Inc.

The Big Catch program is Floridas family-friendly, freshwater angler-recognition program, with 33 different freshwater sh to target. Simply catch a sh that exceeds the qualifying length or weight, take a photo and submit it to BigCatchFlorida. com. Special youth sizes encourage their participation, and qualifiers earn a customized color certificate, decal and discount for a photo mount. Big Catchs origins go back to 1953, but the concept was revamped in 1996 with creation of categories for Specialists ( ve qualifying sh of the same species), Masters ( ve qualifying sh of different species) and Elite anglers (10 qualifying sh of different species), as well as a youth category representing a size roughly 25-percent smaller than the adult quali cation size. Rules were relaxed to allow either a length or weight measurement to qualify. Ivan Salis of Callahan was an early participant following the programs rebirth and quickly qualified as a Channel Catfish Specialist, which remains his passion. Salis came from Ohio after a stint in the Merchant Marine. Now he is sharing his love of shing with the next generation. About nine months ago, Salis met Ishmael Lacoste, a 12-year-old, whose mother knew Lacostes wife. Lacoste saw Salis Specialist Certi cate and became intrigued. Salis has since mentored Lacoste in his quest to become a successful angler. We are talking commitment, passion and love for shing. In nine months, Lacoste has submitted nearly 40 qualifying Big Catches culminating in earning his Elite Angler Certi cate on June 4. His rst Big Catch was a longnose gar on Nov. 23, 2013. It was followed by bass, bluegill, brown bullhead and redear sunfish, earning him his Master Angler Certi cate in January. To attain his elite status he added spotted sun sh, Florida gar, warmouth, bow n and yellow bullhead. Along the way, he has been recognized as a specialist for six different species and documented a Bream Slam (catching four different pan sh species on the same day). Id like to make shing a career someday, said Lacoste, who is home-schooled. He is very appreciative of Salis mentoring him and being so inspirational. Together they have persevered through wind, rain and yellow ies in their ongoing quest. Salis says he has enjoyed watching Lacoste learn and take on new challenges. Another thing that makes their productivity so impressive is that all of their catches have been from shore or shing piers. Thanks to the FWCs Fish Management Area lakes in Duval County, they have had plenty of quality opportunities, including at Oceanway and Bethesda. FWC sheries technician Willie Prevatt has spent over 20 years ensuring anglers have great shing opportunities at those and other regional FMAs and helping teach youth and adults to sh. Prevatt is a favorite resource for Salis and Lacoste. I was very happy Ishmael made Elite Angler, not because he caught most of his sh in the FMAs I work in, but simply because he is a really good person/ student, Prevatt said. I think I am most proud of Ishmael and Mr. Salis because they proved by example that you can compete with anglers shing big lakes in expensive bass boats and with fancy equipment, in a small FMA on the shore or dock, even in an urban area. Fishing is fun, challenging and a great way to spend quality time with family and friends, but there is more to it. A Special Report on Fishing and Boating 2013, makes the case succinctly: Fishing on lakes, streams, rivers and seas is one of the most popular outdoor activities. As a gateway activity, it not only connects Americans with the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle, but also introduces them to other outdoor activities. As active outdoor participants, Americans learn the value of environmental stewardship and a healthy connection to nature, while also supporting public lands and community programs nationwide through license fees and federal aid. The FWC is creating the next generation that cares by reaching out to all youth via a variety of outreach programs, including the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (www. FYCCN.org). Through an effective statewide network of diverse partners, youngsters are provided education and guidance to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities and to accept stewardship of our precious outdoor heritage. In addition to Big Catch, which inspired Salis and Lacoste to get outdoors and go shing, the FWC has a TrophyCatch citizen-science program that rewards anglers for catching, documenting and releasing bass heavier than 8 pounds (TrophyCatchFlorida.com). You can register for TrophyCatch and Big Catch at the same time, which makes you eligible for a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury Marine and equipped with a PowerPole. Got into sport helping his wife shoot and competeFrom FWC News The Operation Dry Water campaign launched over the past week. Northwest Regional of cers focused on boating safety education and awareness on drinking and boating. Throughout the campaign, of cers inspected 901vessels and contacted 2,510 citizens taking an educational approach. There were 36 boating citations issued and 152 boating safety warnings issued. Six arrests for BUI were made. Of cer Kinney arrested a subject for BUI on Cypress Springs. The operator was transported to the Washington County Jail for booking and was determined to have a .152 blood alcohol level. Of cers Molnar and Bartlett conducted a vessel stop on a personal watercraft. While conducting the boating safety inspection, the of cers noticed the operator displayed signs of impairment. At the conclusion of the field sobriety tasks, the subject was arrested for BUI. The subject provided a breath sample of .209 and .215. BAY COUNTY: Ofcer Brady was patrolling offshore when he conducted a resource inspection on a charter vessel whose captain said they had caught red snapper. When Officer Brady asked to inspect his catch, he noticed what appeared to be an undersized scamp and a grey triggerfish. As the captain removed the fish, he kept pushing the trigger sh and the scamp under the ice. When the captain closed the cooler lid, Officer Brady asked if that was all the sh on board and the captain said yes. Ofcer Brady then checked the box and found an undersized scamp and a trigger sh. Of cer Gore checked a sher at Lake Powell who had been cited for red snapper, gag grouper, and trigger sh violations the previous week. During the inspection, the sher showed signs of impairment and he later failed his field sobriety tasks. A check found the sher to have three previous DUI convictions. The fisher refused to submit to a breath test and was booked into the Bay County Jail for BUI. Of cers Kinney and Yates conducted a boating safety detail on Econfina Creek. Numerous boating violations were addressed as well as an arrest for resisting arrest. The arrest resulted from two individuals canoeing and refusing to allow a boating safety inspection after a lawful order was given. One individual stated, You can check me at the next bridge, and continued down the creek. The of cers caught up with the individuals a few hundred yards down the creek and determined there was an insuf cient amount of life jackets and the male occupant was arrested for refusing to allow the inspection. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: Of cer Livesay was on vessel patrol in Pensacola Bay when he checked a person that was shing from a vessel. While performing a sheries and boating safety check, the fisherman asked Of cer Livesay what the size limit on flounder was. He claimed he had only one sh on board and it was a ounder. Of cer Livesay checked the ounder, which was legal, but further inspection of the vessel revealed an undersized red snapper in the live well. Of cer Livesay issued a notice to appear citation for the violation.
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 10, 2014 Page 11A We sincerely hope all of you had a safe and fun Fourth of July spent with friends and family. If you have followed national news you may have read that there were several boating accidents that took lives and left others many injured both children and adults. Investigations are still underway for what went wrong, but many of the news stories highlight the preventable nature of many accidents. One of the most critical skills an Auxiliarist is taught from the moment they join is that of situational awareness. The Coast Guard states: Situational Awareness is the ability to identify, process, and comprehend the critical elements of information about what is happening to the team with regards to the mission. More simply, its knowing what is going on around you. It cannot really be said any clearer be alert to what is going on around you. When everyone is having fun, paying attention to what is going on in the boat and in the water can be overlooked. It only takes a moment of distracted boating to create a dangerous situation. While cars have brakes, boats do not have any stopping a moving boat quickly is not an option. Similarly, cars have seatbelts and boats do not. When a collision happens, everyone on board a boat goes ying in all directions, and potentially into the water which creates an entirely different problem. Without a properly tting life jacket, many who end up in the water do not survive. We want everyone to go out and have a good time on the water. That is why many of us joined the Auxiliary a love of the water. However we also want to see that everyone who goes out returns safely. Flotilla 12 will hold its monthly meeting Saturday at the Crawfordville Fire Station at 9:30 a.m. Fellowship begins at 9:15 a.m. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux.net then contact our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Human Resources, Raye Crews, at Rayec@uscgaux. net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at Duanet@uscgaux.net. If youre interested in a free vessel examination, send an email to our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Vessel Examinations, Steve Hults, at Steveh@uscgaux.net.

By JESSICA COOK HALEThe sites along the rivers and offshore in the Big Bend along Apalachee Bay are probably best known for their extreme antiquity. Some of the oldest sites in North America can be found in the Aucilla River, for example. However, our project is focused on a later period that is perhaps less well known, but is equally interesting for very different reasons. We are investigating a period known as the Middle Archaic, which in Florida dates from around 8000 radiocarbon years before the present (BP) to about 5000 BP. This was a period during which the climate was more seasonal than today, with warmer summers but somewhat colder winters, and it is also the period during which some very interesting behavioral changes can be detected in the Southeastern U.S. For example, recent research within the last 20 years has emphasized the ceremonial aspects of shell mounds and shell rings along the St. Johns River valley and nearby watersheds from the Middle Archaic (~8000 BP to 5000 BP) into the Late Archaic (~5000 BP to 3000 BP). Research over the last 25 years in these areas of Florida has shown that, contrary to earlier assumptions, these mounds are not simple household middens (garbage dumps normally containing food and artifact remains) deposited over long periods of time but instead appear to have been created rather rapidly during the course of ritual feasting. In some cases, burials are also found within these mounds. This is in addition to the appearance of burials within ponds and sinkholes, and is a departure from earlier cultural traditions. There is one other characteristic of these sites that is highly interesting: evidence for reduced mobility in the people who lived at these locations. Earlier populations appear to have moved around the landscape exploiting various resources, probably in patterns tied to seasonal changes. The Middle Archaic groups, however, appear to have settled down by comparison. In other areas of the world, other coastal populations are also known to have done this as well. One example would be the Mesolithic groups living along the Baltic Sea after the end of the last glacial period, where the Erteblle culture living in what is now Denmark lived in year round villages and lived on an almost wholly marine-based diet of shell sh, sh, and other aquatic resources. A more recent example would be the historic tribes in the Paci c Northwest such as the Tlingit and Kwakiutl, who had permanent villages, but who also traveled to sites along the rivers at certain times of the year to harvest migrating sh such as salmon. The common thread that appears here is that all of these groups had excellent access to very rich marine, estuarine, riverine, and terrestrial resources, all within a relatively compressed area. It is also quite interesting to note that these permanent settlements were able to sustain themselves without using domesticated plants or animals, which is contrary to what earlier scholars believed was the vital link between sedentary settlements and the development of agriculture. For this reason, a great deal of work in recent years has been focused on exploring the link between ample coastal resources and the development of permanent settlements by the people who exploited those resources.To be continued.Jessica Cook Hale is with the Department of Anthropology, University of Georgia.

From FWC News For years the message to more hardcore largemouth bass anglers has been, Have fun fishing, but release your sh. On Lake Jackson, near Tallahassee, fisheries biologists are now encouraging anglers to keep some of their bass, at least those less than 16 inches. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulations allow an angler on Lake Jackson to keep ve black bass per day, with only one of the ve greater than 16 inches in length. The four shorter bass can be any size, as long as they are less than 16 inches. Over the last decade or so Lake Jackson had little water, due to ongoing drought, but thats no longer the case. The lake, which was famous during the s, s and s for big bass, is back at full pool and now covers almost 6,000 acres. There are lots of small male bass in the lake, and its certainly okay for anglers to keep these smaller bass since all of these sh compete for the same food or forage base, said Chris Paxton, FWC Regional Fisheries Biologist. Its up to the angler if they want to keep one bigger sh (over 16 inches), but these are females and if they live long enough they are the sh that will become trophy sh. We have a general regulation in the Florida Panhandle allowing for a daily bag limit of ve bass longer than 12 inches, with one of the five longer than 22 inches, but that rule doesnt apply to Lake Jackson and several other water bodies where we have special rules in place, Paxton said.

By LES HARRISON and SHELLEY SWENSON of the Extension Of ceJuly is delivering a bounty of fresh vegetables to summer gardens all over Wakulla County. One of the most popular and versatile vegetables (or fruit) is the tomato. As part of the educational program at the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension ofce, a comparison test of six tomato cultivars was conducted. Each of the plants was grown under identical conditions in mushroom compost and planted on a row together to assure equal treatment. All were planted on March 19. The cultivars grown were Speckled Roman, Costaluto Genovese, Stupice, Sungold, Rutgers and a grape tomato donated by Barbara Martin at All Seasons Garden Shop. All the tomatoes are indeterminate producers, meaning the tomatoes mature over a period of time allowing for multi-week use by home gardeners. These tomatoes can be classi ed as heirlooms, special or older hybrids and are all open pollinator varieties. The plants and seed can be found in garden centers and catalogues, when available. Costoluto Genovese was an heirloom developed in Italy. The shape is at and ribbed, and the color a deep red. It has an excellent avor, but the ribbed shape creates wasted flesh if peeled. The plant grew well with moderate yields. Stupice is from Czechoslovakia and is reported to produce a small to moderate sized tomato. This cultivar was stuck by Tomato spotted wilt virus after about six weeks of growth. It was the only variety in the test to show signs of the disease. As with many heirloom varieties, disease resistance varies. Performance and growth characteristics were poor for this cultivar. The Speckled Roman is a specialty tomato, very similar in appearance to the Roma tomato with a relatively long pointed shape. While the esh is red, the skin is red with yellow, orange and green splotches. While the plant was the tallest variety planted (over six feet), its yields have been moderate. It is a late producer and may better be used as an autumn selection. Sungold is a specialty variety cherry type tomato, but is yellow to golden in color. It is sometimes seen in farmers markets and higher end retailers. The plants produced very well with high yields and no disease problems. The tomatoes vine-ripen to a very sweet fruit with low acid characteristics. Production is winding down as July advances. Rutgers is an obsolete canning variety developed in New Jersey. It produces mid-sized tomatoes and has been a dependable, but not excessive, producer. It would be a good choice for a fall garden too. The generic or unidentified cherry tomato was the best producer. One plant provided over eight pounds of tomatoes, and they are still going strong. Seed will be saved from this plant for further evaluation. Every region developed its own special cultivars, each having unique colors and skin patterns. No other vegetable, or fruit for that matter, has the wide skin variation of a tomato. Handling tomatoes is simple, always store tomatoes at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. Use within one week after they are ripe. Many eld tomatoes taste best if not refrigerated. Only refrigerate if they will not be used within the rst week of ripening. For the health conscience, tomatoes are a rich source of vitamin C. They are low in fat with no saturated fats, low in sodium, cholesterol free and low calorie. They are also a good source of potassium. Most importantly, the home grown varieties taste great.

Green Scene Page 14 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 10, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com Green Scene By SHELLEY SWENSONWakulla Extension ServiceGREEN LIVING It is a good time of the year to look around your of ce to determine how you and your staff can become more green for better health, mood and productivity it is time to green your workplace. Indoor Plants: NASA studies have shown certain plants clean indoor air by removing formaldehyde and benzene and by lowering carbon dioxide levels. Plants in the workplace area have also shown to decrease stress and improve productivity. Pest Management: You can reduce pesticide use by taking an integrated pest management approach which emphasizes prevention and the use of low or non-toxic treatments to replace broad chemical applications. Look for ways to take the attraction away from the pest instead of waiting for pests to appear and then treating them. Cleaning: If you have carpets professionally cleaned, try using a service that uses a non-chemical, low-water process. For general cleaning, look for non-toxic or environmentally friendly cleaners such as those level low-VOC, biodegradable or solvent free. Some key label terms to avoid include danger, poison or corrosive. Paper: The classic reduce, reuse, and recycle can go beyond just printing on recycled paper. How about printing on both sides or not printing at all? Provide email agendas and request that laptop computers be brought to the meeting to make a signi cant change in the amount of printing. We are so fortunate to have curbside recycling for our Wakulla County citizens. Perhaps recycling for all businesses can be realized in the future. If you are replacing items that still can be used, such as computers or furniture, donating or selling would be a better options for getting rid of them than just throwing them out. Water: Consider installing lowow toilets and xtures. Consider water lters being used to replace purchasing bottled water. Extension is famous for its Florida-Friendly Landscaping program. Choosing the correct plants and appropriate irrigation systems is encouraged.Try following the guidelines offered through this program. Request details at the Wakulla County Extension Of ce. Energy: Look for electronics and equipment that are energy ef cient such as those with the Energy Star label. These can range from computers, copiers, and faxes to light bulbs-even the break room refrigerator should be an Energy Star appliance. Try setting light switches to motion sensors to prevent them from being left on. Pulling it all together: Create a management plan. It may be wise to designate a green of ce coordinator who takes suggestions and ideas, coordinates work requests and promotes of ce sustainability. Remember to educate and involve employees in sustainability efforts. Increase signage reminding employees to practice green habits at work, and have a green employee of the month. While some of the listed options in this article may be out of your control depending on your employer, see which you can do individually or talk with your of ce manager to determine what can be incorporated of ce-wide. UF/IFAS has published a sustainability best practices manual for Florida Extension of ces. If you think it would help to jump-start your efforts, let me know and I will get you a copy!

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 10, 2014 Page 15By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 3 Independence Day and the accompanying reworks shows werent technically supposed to get underway until Friday, but state government seemed to be on holiday for most of the week. Democrats got the party out of the way early with their annual fundraising soiree Saturday, though they ditched the red (for obvious reasons) and white in their newly renamed Leadership Blue Gala. Gov. Rick Scott toured the state to thank veterans, an appropriate run-up to the holiday and a potential political boon to his re-election campaign. The capital city itself was largely quiet, with the highest profile event being the swearing-in ceremony for new Supreme Court Chief Justice Jorge Labarga, the rst Cuban-American to hold that position.PAINT THE TOWN BLUEIf theres a reason Florida can go from voting for Barack Obama in 2008 to Scott in 2010 and then back to Obama in 2012 --aside from political schizophrenia --its turnout. In presidential election years, just about everyone who is politically involved votes. In midterm years, the electorate tends to be older, whiter and more conservative. Democrats are hoping to somehow turn that formula around this year, or at least lessen the swing, as they work to get former Gov. Charlie Crist his old job back and protect the gains in Congress and the Legislature that they made two years ago. That was also a theme when former President Bill Clinton spoke at the partys fundraising dinner Saturday night in Broward County. We have to be creative in how we reach people and how we get them to the polls, Clinton told a crowd of more than 1,500 supporters who paid up to $250 to hear the former president speak. If were going to preserve democracy, real democracy, weve got to show up. Displaying his encyclopedic knowledge of politics, Clinton illustrated his point by saying that Democrat Alex Sink should have won a special election earlier this year to replace the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young in a Pinellas County congressional district. Sink was defeated by Youngs onetime aide David Jolly. Alex Sink won the independent votes by almost twice the margin President Obama did. But the registered Democrats did not turn out, Clinton said, noting that Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe won his election because black voter turnout matched that in the general election. If they can do it, you can do it, Clinton said. The Clinton event raised $1.1 million topping previous earnings for the annual Leadership Blue Gala fundraiser, formerly called the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner and nearly 1,600 supporters were expected to attend the event at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa, another historic high, according to Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant. As far as the larger goal defeating Scott Tant promised that 2014 would feature the largest field plan that the Florida Democratic Party has ever seen. And U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also serves as the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said the DNC has created a vast and sophisticated voter le called Project Ivy that it is sharing with state parties to help in turning out voters. Republicans didnt seem scared, but perhaps that was because they were having too much fun trying to cause mischief. They hammered Crist for failing to release the tax returns of his wife, Carole. A plane towing a banner reading www.CharliesTaxReturns. com #WhatsCristHiding, paid for by the Republican Party of Florida, ew overhead prior to Crists arrival. RPOF Chairwoman Leslie Dougher met briefly with reporters to blast Crist for the tax returns and for his absence earlier in the day. What are you scared of? Dougher said. The more you hide something, the more people want to see it. Crist, ocked by supporters upon his entrance to the hotel, dismissed the demands.AWARDS AND VOTESMeanwhile, Scott was touring the state to hand out the Governors Veterans Service Award to hundreds of former service members. Scott, a Navy vet himself, created the award in March. The courage and sacrice these veterans displayed while serving our country has contributed to the freedoms and opportunities Florida families bene t from everyday, Scott said in a prepared statement following one of the ceremonies. But the governors outreach also has a political component as he prepares for a bruising and close ght with Crist. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that an average of 1.6 million veterans lived in Florida from 2008 to 2012, the most recent gures available. That accounts for about 10.8 percent of state civilians age 18 or older in 2012. They tend to be older, and they also tend to be highturnout voters and conservative, said Susan MacManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida. In addition to this weeks ceremonies, Scott showed up for other events the week before wearing a Navy cap. And on Tuesday, Scotts campaign released a web video with a veteran talking about the states vet-friendly environment and why hes supporting the governor. Lawmakers helped Scott with his pitch this spring by approving the Florida GI Bill, which expands university tuition waivers provided to veterans, pays for military and guard base improvements and aims to increase employment opportunities for veterans while trying to convince more of them to move to the state. But Democrats still said Scott hasnt done enough highlighting the governors failure, for example, to get the Legislature to approve Medicaid expansion. Floridas veterans deserve better, said Joshua Karp, a spokesman for the Florida Democratic Party. If Scott really cared about Floridas veterans, he would have accepted federal funding to expand access to health care for over 40,000 veterans who currently lack it.CHIEF JUSTICE HAS IMPACTAway from all the squabbling between Democrats and Republicans, the Florida Supreme Court held a more digni ed ceremony to swear in Labarga as the courts rst Cuban-American chief justice. And in at least one case, Labargas impact was quickly apparent. Labarga, 61, whose family immigrated to the United States after the Cuban revolution, became the states 56th chief justice and the fth from Palm Beach County. He replaced outgoing Chief Justice Ricky Polston, 58. Polston remains on the court, though he has applied to be the next president at Florida State University. But Labargas impact was seen in something else that happened this week, something mentioned by Justice Barbara Pariente during the swearing-in ceremony. Pariente noted that when the court ruled in March that undocumented immigrants cannot be admitted to The Florida Bar, Labarga reluctantly agreed with the majority but offered his own strongly worded opinion that called on the Legislature to change state law to allow socalled Dreamers to become attorneys. The Legislature heard your words and passed legislation that allowed this applicant to be admitted to the Florida Bar, Pariente said, referring to an immigrant who was the subject of the court case. The day after Labargas swearing-in, the Florida Board of Bar Examiners recommended the court admit Jose Manuel Godinez-Samperio, of Largo, to The Florida Bar. A law-school graduate who became an undocumented immigrant as a child when his parents overstayed their visas in the United States, Godinez-Samperio moved a key step closer to becoming a Florida attorney with the recommendation. Ive been waiting for over three years and the dream had seemed so far away, Godinez-Samperio told The News Service of Florida on Tuesday. Now that its happening, now that its becoming reality, its unspeakable. STORY OF THE WEEK: Jorge Labarga is sworn in as the states first CubanAmerican chief justice. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: I am a voice for the people in the district, not a vote for any particular person to become Senate president. Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, about her race against former Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale. Bogdanoff is a supporter of Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, who is ghting with Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, to lead the chamber after the 2016 elections. WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Few reworks on the week of the Fourth WHITES WINESTony Terlato betting on MillenialsBy DAVID WHITEWhen I was in college, we drank beer. When my sons were in college, they drank draft beer. But when my granddaughter was in college, shed get together with ve girls, go out to a restaurant, and theyd each put $10 toward a $60 bottle of wine. Tony Terlato, the chairman of Terlato Wine Group, shared this story while explaining why his entire company is focused on millennials. Marketers everywhere are obsessed with this demographic, which is comprised of those born between 1980 and 2000. But hearing Tony Terlato talk about this generation was different. Terlato isnt some young, tech-obsessed marketing executive. He just celebrated his 80th birthday and has worked in the wine industry for nearly six decades. Master sommelier Tim Gaiser recently praised Terlato for bringing wine into mainstream American consciousness and gave him credit for helping change domestic wine tastes from massproduced, sweet, fortied jug wines that dominated drinking habits after WWII to the likes of classi ed-growth Bordeaux, top Italian estates, and the best wineries in California that are enjoyed by many today. Indeed, one in every eight bottles of wine over $14 sold in America passes through Terlatos sales and marketing rm, Terlato Wines International. So Terlato has seen it all. And hes more optimistic than ever before about the future of Americas wine market, because hes certain that millennials are embracing wine. Most forward-looking companies are targeting the nations 75 million millennials, of course. Todays young professionals have more discretionary income than any previous generation, so working to attract these consumers makes sense. In the wine industry, though, many are dismissive of todays 20-and 30-somethings. Three years ago, while speaking on a panel about marketing to the next generation of wine drinkers at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, Kayla Koroush of Heringer Estates talked about a recent experience in an area tasting room. Because of her age, she was completely ignored. Treating any customer in wine and elsewhere in such a fashion is inexcusable. But in the wine industry, Kaylas experience is common. Some industry leaders even defend ignoring this demographic. Rob McMillan, who heads up Silicon Valley Banks wine division, has urged his colleagues to spend less time worrying about young consumers, because its absolutely false to think that millennials are driving ne wine sales. Never mind the fact that todays youngest consumers grew up seeing wine as part of the American experience. Or the fact that more wines from more places are more available than ever before. Plus, as Joe Roberts of 1WineDude.com once wrote in an industry missive, You cannot ignore this younger generation forever. Boomers and Gen Xers will some day have to stop buying your wine because they have a terminal condition that will eventually kill them all (its called being human). Baby boomers do have more spending power than millennials, but millennials are more likely to spend more than $20 on a bottle of wine. Terlato has noticed this. Millennials can afford to spend $20, $25 dollars on a bottle of wine; they dont even think twice about it, he commented. Terlato has always tried to predict where the wine market is headed. I want to try to be where the market is going, he explained, because if youre where the market already is, its too late to be important -somebody else already made those plans. And hes succeeded. Consider Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio, which Terlato discovered in 1979 while in northern Italy searching for Americas next great white. Shortly after bringing the wine to market, it became the most successful imported wine priced over $15 in U.S. history. In his autobiography, Terlato wrote about a 1956 encounter with Robert Mondavi, where Mondavi predicted that one day, a bottle of wine would be on every American dinner table. Were not there yet, but if Terlatos granddaughter is any indication, thats where were headed. David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com. His columns are housed at Palate Press: The Online Wine Magazine. -Janet

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 10, 2014 Page 21By DEBBIE DIX BISHOPSpecial to The NewsThe Sopchoppy Fourth of July Parade and Celebration began in 1973 by Bill Stephens, affectionately known as Mr. Sopchoppy, who felt it was important for Sopchoppy to honor our nation, the servicemen and women who defended our nation and their families, our friends and our communities. Bill Lowrie, President of the Sopchoppy Preservation and Improvement Association was organizing the parade before Debbie Dix Bishop took it over, and with the exception of last years parade, Dix Bishop has been organizing the event. This year was so much fun and I enjoyed working with the entire Sopchoppy Fourth of July Committee members and reconnecting with and meeting so many wonderful people, Dix Bishop said. This event is about honoring our countrys Independence and bringing people together, to celebrate as a United Nation of peoples. The Award recipients for this years Fourth of July Parade are Most Original, Eden Springs; Best Decorated Float, the Bill Stephens Family Float and City of Sopchoppy, tied; Best Decorated Vehicle, Wakulla Senior Center; Most Patriotic, VFW Post 4538; Best Youth Entry, Miss Wakulla Queens; Best Historical, Dan McCall; Best Animal Entry, Sopchoppy Pizza Company; Most Artistic, Town & Country Taxi; Best Vintage Automobile, Chris Brown; Best Vintage Tractor, Cecil Spears and Solid Rock Ranch Antique Tractors; Best Impressive New Vehicle, Thomas Cline; Best Noisy Entry, Derek Allens Audio; Favorite Musical Entry, 103.1 The Wolf; Most Impressive Political Candidate, Jo Ann Daniels and Steve Fults tied; Best Non-Pro t Organization, the Shriners Club and the Crawfordville Lions Club tied; and the judges awarded Freeman Pigott for Sexiest Legs in the parade; Gordon McCleary for Best Dressed; and the Wakulla County School Board, for Most Crowded entry. These awards are all in good fun and not meant to be a competition but just a way of recognizing some of the people who participated, said Dix Bishop. An event like the entire Sopchoppy Fourth of July requires a lot of people participating and supporting in different ways to make the event successful. The winner of the Sopchoppy Mr. Legs Contest this year went to Richard Harden, who proudly wore the crown and sash at the event. This years parade MC was Big Moose, from 103.1 The Wolf and the parade judges were Debbie Revell of Revell Realty, former Sopchoppy Mayor Colleen Skipper, and Rachel Dix Kessler, who stepped in for Mike Porter, when he was suddenly called to work. Vocalist Brianna Marin sang the Star Spangle Banner. The Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce provided the Honor Guard and security at this years event and the VFW Post 4538 provided Flag Detail at the beginning of the Park Celebration. City of Sopchoppy staff members oversaw and shot off the reworks. Many community members volunteered to take money at the entrances at the park. And 53 different organizations, business, or individual entries were entered into the parade. ood petithis Most Dec oamily tied; kulla VFW Miss cal, tr y, ost axi; ris ech se; s y, n THE WA t r r rn as, ur ent esve was ade hop h the ears has ven t. much rking hoppy mittee nnec tng so eople, This ing our nce and ther, to d Nation pientsfor ews.com this Fourth of JULY JULY g o r. hhe Big he of yor esPHOTOS BY JENNY ODOM & LYNDA KINSEY SEE MORE PHOTOS AT THEWAKULLANEWS.COM As always, client service is our ultimate priority.

Page 22 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 10, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comSummertime in Wakulla County is good. Among the premium experiences are leisurely hours at the beach. For many this is a period of relaxation and the opportunity to casually explore and examine what the surf has thrown on the beach. It can be the culmination of a summer vacation or a weekend reprieve from the contemporary insanity and pressure of 2014s workaday grind. While the gulls and pelicans soar overhead, the lapping waves provide a cool alternative to the sugary sand. Many unseen lives scurry underfoot between the two environments as they have for untold eons. The hermit crab is one commonly encountered native creature which is slow-moving and hard to miss observing. It scuttles along the shallow coastal waters in search of its immediate needs. In most cases it is the next meal which prompts this member of the Pagurus genus to tfully crawl about in the borrowed disguise of a gastropod. They are not particular which shell they occupy just so long as it ts their size and is transportable. Likewise, they are not especially particular about their meals. Hermit crabs are omnivores that relentlessly scavenge for anything digestible in the shallow waters of Wakulla County, and much of the world. Their family includes about 1,100 members that differ in size, color and housing choices. Some, in other regions, will even lodge in immovable locations and depend on the tidal currents to provide for their nutritional requirements. When times are good and the hermit crab has plenty to eat, it will outgrow the shell which fate provided for its use. The search for a replacement requires probing, luck and can produce aggressive behavior between hermit crabs if appropriately sized shells are in short supply. Without the shell a hermit crab is an easy meal for another denizen of the deep. If the shell is too small, the hermit crab cannot grow properly or withdraw into the shell completely which exposes it to the unending stream of predators. The upper portion of their bodies is covered with a hard exoskeleton, but their abdomen is soft and vulnerable to attack. The long and pliable abdomen is useful for firmly holding on to a vacant snail shell which provides the necessary protection. The technique has proven very successful for the hermit crabs as a whole. Fossil records indicate these crustaceans have existed since the last days of the dinosaurs. While hermit crabs live alone in the shells they procure, they are commonly found in colonies and compete for a variety of necessary resources and mates. Their collective activity has attracted the attention of young beach goers. The small, shy creatures have held unending fascination for generations of children. The hide and seek nature of their behavior retreating into shells at the rst appearance of a threat increases the enticement. The temptation to return home with a unique and diminutive pet has proven irresistible for many. One can only guess how many parents have rst learned of their childs decision by the aroma of a deceased hermit crab. It is a good thing the visit to the beach is relaxing.
