Page 2A.Wakulla schools get high rank for Bang for buckStaff Report A report released this week found that Wakulla County Schools is one of the eight most productive school districts in the state. Its a big deal, said Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce. Im really proud of it, he said, adding that Its an af rmation of a lot of peoples really hard work. The study, Return on Educational Investment 2014, was conducted by the Center for American Progress and released July 9. The report examined the productivity of almost every major school district in the country. According to the return on investment district-by-district evaluation, the following Florida districts received the highest return on investment rating: Wakulla, Seminole, Santa Rosa, Nassau, Clay, Brevard, Bay and Baker. The study measured the academic achievement a school district produces relative to its education spending, while controlling for factors outside a districts control, such as cost of living and students in poverty. Randy Beach, chief nancial of cer for the Wakulla school district, said that since the last school tax increase, which was seven years ago, in 2007-08, the school district has locally collected an average of $1.5 million less per year. This year, he said, the district will collect $2.6 million less from Wakulla taxpayers than collected in 2007-08. Despite the decreases, Beach said, the Wakulla school district has added multiple student programs including auto mechanics, engineering, AVID, welding, the medical academy and more. Comparing how schools utilize public funding to enhance student achievement is the basis for the index. School funding levels differ depending on the number of students with greater-than-average education needs, such as English learners or students with disabilities. The return on investment tool is not a new accountability tool, but is used to inform decision making about school spending. The Florida Education Finance Program is complex. Dollars come to the district with their own set of policies and procedures that include categorical programs. The study used data from 2011. Wakulla school revenues totaled more than $46 million, which translated to $8,935 per student. Total expenditures came to $44 million, or about $8,600 per student, which earned a rank of 8th in the state. This is something that helps school administrators, parents and public better recognize the most cost effective programs in essence, to gure ways to do more with what we have, Pearce said of the study. We continually evaluate how effectively tax dollars are being spent. We are working together to improve accountability procedures and focus on building a stronger, more innovative educational system while simultaneously maintaining a transparent and actionable budget. Pearce said he has been using the studys ndings to urge his administrators to do more. With the clientele we have and the support from the county, we should be doing better, he said he told them. The skys the limit. The study on district achievement and spending in almost 40 states is available online at http://interactives. americanprogress.org. Local district is one of eight most productiv e school districts in the state, study ndsSpecial to The NewsA 4-year-old Prentiss, Miss., female drowned in a Crawfordville swimming pool on Friday, July 11 at 4:38 p.m., according to Sheriff Charlie Creel. The juvenile was visiting with Wakulla County relatives when a family member observed her motionless body in the deep end of the swimming pool at a residence on Spring Creek Highway. Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce deputies responded to the scene along with Wakulla Fire Rescue and Wakulla EMS. The emergency responders arrived at the home to see the guardians of the victim performing CPR on the child. Wakulla EMS and Fire Rescue loaded the child in an ambulance and transported her to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 5:38 p.m. WCSO investigators determined that a large family gathering was taking place at the home. Members of the families were inside the home when a family member found the child in the pool. The child was last seen at 4:25 p.m. inside the home. Investigators determined that the child may have slipped into the pool while reaching for an item oating in the water. An autopsy of the child was conducted on Saturday, July 12 and the Medical Examiners preliminary determination is consistent with accidental drowning. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netCommissioners repealed the local wetlands ordinance at the July 14 meeting of the Wakulla County Board of Commissioners with a 4-1 vote, with Howard Kessler opposing. This means the local 75-foot wetlands buffer is scaled back to the state standard, which requires an average of a 25-foot buffer. Citizens were concerned that repealing the ordinance, and possibly reinstating it in the November referendum, could make the county vulnerable to lawsuits. Outside the meeting, Commissioner Ralph Thomas said there is a lot of confusion about the potential for lawsuits. He said repealing the ordinance now actually eliminates the risk of a lawsuit. As far as property goes, weve eliminated the risk of a lawsuit, because the ordinance would be a prohibiting factor for them not being able to build, Thomas said. Last night we eliminated that risk. In November when people vote, they will be voting to bring risk back to us. Thomas said once the Department of State registers the repeal within 10 days, a builder could get a permit approved within the window of opportunity before the November referendum. If the ordinance comes back, they can still proceed on, Thomas said. But people who buy property expecting to build on it after November might have a problem if the ordinance is reinstated. Commissioner Randy Merritt said, If the citizens decide they want to impose buffer zones, and a 5-0 (board) vote is required to change the buffer zones, and deny people use of their property the citizens of Wakulla County should be willing to compensate those people for that. Kessler said he would attempt to make a friendly amendment to make the effective date of a possible repeal after the referendum in November. If people here want to protect their wetlands, they have to do it themselves, Kessler said. They cannot rely on the state. Citizen Bill Anderson, a candidate for commission seat 4, said the boards decision to repeal the ordinance is reckless. If you do away with this ordinance tonight, and the public puts it back in, its a very reckless act on your part, Anderson said. Youre supposed to steer this county away from risk and potential liability. Larry Roberts echoed Andersons comments, and said the repeal is a window of opportunity for a lawsuit.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com Please Recycle By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netPassersby can see more of an iconic Wakulla County landmark thanks to a little help from friends. The cleanup of the old trucks site on U.S. 319 was completed through a partnership with Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and Whole Foods volunteers from Tallahassee. Only a few of the antique, rust-dusted Fords and Dodges were visible prior to the cleanup at the location of what used to be the sprawling Harvey Farm. Now all 14 vintage vehicles, lined up by year, are visible. Tourist and locals seeking a unique photo op will now have more to work with since the team cleared trees and brush in late June. JoAnn Palmer, a member of KWCB, said Whole Foods is an environmentally conscious grocery store that requires employees to do community service. After Tweeting the cleanup idea to the Tallahassee location, the store sent 11 associates to the site to help out. They were so great, Palmer said. Young, very energetic, all concerned about the environment. They have also committed to sponsor Coastal Cleanup. Palmer said clearing the iconic landmark is part of the enhancement that KWCB works toward as its mission. Property owner Pat Harvey, whose grandfather, father and son also drove the old vehicles, explained the sites history to the volunteers. These are city kids, Palmer said. They were spellbound. The kids were in awe how old the cars were. Its so sweet he took the time to tell them. He said he had no idea we would do so much. The kids loved it. They were taken back by what they were seeing. It will stay with them forever. At one time, the Harvey Farm tract spanned all the way from the library up to River of Life Church, and the property where Wakulla Environmental Institute will be located, on both sides of US 319. The trucks and cars were used for daily farm tasks including loading corn, peanuts, cane syrup, oats and hay; hauling turpentine, cattle, hogs and wood for the sawmill. Beyond farming, the vehicles carried dates to sockhops and the kids for family vacations. When the vehicles were exhausted, they werent traded in or sold, but kept for parts, since cars used to be made with interchangeable components. Pat Harvey, also known as Homer Americus Harvey, said the oldest vehicle is dated 1936. He didnt exactly have a drivers license when he learned his way around the dashboard. The rst one I ever drove was the 1947, Harvey said. I was about 8 years old, out in the eld, loading corn, peanuts and hay. I was probably in the way as much I did good. We played in them too, when there wasnt work to do. Like his father Homer Riley Harvey, and grandfather Riley Americus Harvey, Pats son Brad Harvey also spent time in the cars. That was my playground, Brad said. That whole area was my playground. We traveled the world in our imagination. Brad said he remembers loading up into the old cattlebody truck and going to the drive-in theatre where the Wakulla High School stadium is now. The family would load up in that sit in the back and watch the movie, Brad said. Brad said the spent vehicles were parked throughout the property in woods and behind barns. In 1997, my dad and grandfather Homer Riley Harvey started cleaning up, and dad starting lining up trucks out in that eld, Brad said. Some we had to cut off of oak trees 14 inches across growing up through the frames. We moved them into those lines out there, all in order by age by make and model, starting with oldest on south end, and new on north end. Brad said since lining up the old vehicles, the site has become a local landmark. He said he would like to place a plaque out there, telling the history of the property and vehicles, to preserve it. The site has been a draw locally and internationally. Harvey said several tourists have come by over the years. One man come down in moving van from California because he saw a photo of them in Tallahassee, Harvey said. Lots of photos have been taken of them. One day a lady was only taking photos of broken glass. She said it was abstract art. The glass turns blue and different colors, because back then safety glass was laminated with plastic. But not everyone has been a big fan of the entropic display. Harvey said, The county complained when I rst put them out. But they grandfathered it in, saying I can take away, but cant add to it. Of course, the antiquated emblems on the car have been pried off since 1997. Harvey is not upset or surprised, though. Vandals got all the windshields, emblems and nameplates, Harvey said. I expected the emblems and nameplates to go. Brad added that the chrome accents have been stripped, and the radiators were stolen for copper. He has posted signs up there, so people wouldnt steal, Brad said. We thought about plaque saying: Take pictures, not parts. Theres a geocach (part of a real-world scavenger hunt with 212 logged visits) stashed under one of those trucks too. Brad said many residents worked with or bene ted from the farm in different ways over the years, so the vehicles represent more than just transportation of yesteryear. He said, Its about community and a way of life. Harvey said he still drives and loves Ford and Dodge vehicles, even though his granddaughter recently became the owner of a GMC. Harvey said, Thats what we call a Georgia Milk Cow.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 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. Please RecycleBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net Members of the Sopchoppy City Council passed an amendment to the ood ordinance at the July 7 meeting following two public hearings, though the change will affect very few residents. Houses in ood hazard areas that have sustained damage costing more than 50 percent of the homes cost in a five-year period must adhere to new regulations articulated in the amendment. City Attorney Dan Cox said the most signi cant change to the ordinance has to do with cumulative substantial improvements. For example, if you have a house thats worth $100,000, and there was a ood with $40,000 worth of damage, then you could rebuild that house without having to meet the ood requirements of the ordinance, Cox said. If you had $51,000 worth of damage to that house in one ood, you would have to meet the new requirements like raising the house above base ood elevation. City Clerk Jackie Lawhon said she thinks there is only one home in the area that has sustained repetitive flood damage. Cox said there are certain exemptions that dont increase the risk of ood, like new plumbing, even if it changes the value of the house. WATER CONNECTION WITH PANACEA A proposal to connect the water lines of the City of Sopchoppy with the Panacea Area Water System (PAWS) was ushed out by council members at the meeting. PAWS has evaluated the need for a good water supply, to supplement their existing well. It will cost the city a contribution of $90,205 to install 13,750 feet of 8-inch interconnection with Sopchoppy. The system will be managed and maintained by PAWS. Like an electrical grid, there will be a water grid, Council Member Eddie Evans said. If we tied into the system, we would be selling water to (Panacea). Theyve had to shut one of the wells down. Tartt read from a report that said the interconnection is intended to be bene cial for both water systems, providing supplemental water and address persistent water quality problems. Council Member Nathan Lewis said he does not see an immediate quanti able bene t to the interconnection, besides just being good neighbors. Is there a way to recoup our $100,000? Lewis asked. Tartt said the interconnection is currently only a concept, and details would be finetuned before a formal presentation. SMART WATER METERS Lawhon said an auditor was queried about the installation of new, high tech, low maintenance smart meters in the city. The current bid of $710,000 (which includes installation) is only good until Sept. 30. The auditor recommended that the new meters be bought outright with money in the bank instead of borrowing to cover the cost. The meters are reported to signi cantly increase revenue because of accuracy. They are designed with a 20year warranty, and can detect tampering, leaks and also pinpoint water usage down to the minute, since they perform readings every 11 seconds. A nal decision will be made at a later date. INFRASTRUCTURE RELOCATION In June, Cox said he would request DOT pay for pipe relocation when the US 319/98 intersection is realigned. The city will pay $13,425 for plans that will evaluate needs and local impact of the realignment, and split a $67,000 bill with Wakulla County to execute planning and blueprints to relocate infrastructure (water pipes), which connect to Sopchoppy. Cox said the possibility of DOT picking up the $326,000 pipe relocation tab would be improved if the city can show that it already spent a lot of money on the project, like for a new tank or well, in its ve-year capital improvement plan. It will also depend a lot on legislative appropriations, Cox said. Its not a guarantee. In other matters: Council members will submit to the city clerk a list of properties that are eyesores and code violations. The sewer system will be given over to the county at the Aug. 4 meeting of the Wakulla County commissioners. The sewer system was installed with state revolving fund loans. In order for the state to loan us money, we had to own the system, Cox said. We are going to give ownership to the county, so they can do the long term maintenance. The annual Sopchoppy Fourth of July event was a success, with beautiful weather and a strong turnout. With event cash added to existing funds, $15,000 is available for next years Independence Day party. 32.20 16.37 6.93 1.33 2.89 20.47 20.00 1.78 14.14 2.56 100.00 10.00 30.08 1.01 19.10 19.77 13.38

Sincerely, Debbie Dix Bishop Committee Member anks for supportingSopchoppy FourthEditor, The News: Thank you for your article on Anonymous Code Enforcement Complaints in the Wakulla News July 3 edition. I have called Code Enforcement with complaints of neighbors discarding their household trash in front of their homes for Waste Pro to pick up. These items were left by the side of the road for weeks before I called with Waste Pro driving by every single Thursday (pick-up day on our road) stopping at the house and emptying the trash container and leaving without picking up the other discarded items. When I have complained to the proper authorities, I always left my name because I wanted to make sure that the items were picked up. I felt that was the surest way for the enforcement of cer to locate the debris and to have the owners remove the trash I have a suggestion that will eliminate anonymous complaints and keep our roads clean: When Waste Pro drivers see an obvious sign of illegal trash/ garbage that has been discarded in front of a home that the driver knows he/she will NEVER pick up, why not have the driver radio the dispatcher and advise the dispatcher of the location and then have the dispatcher notify the proper authorities? This will ensure that the illegal discarded items will NOT sit for weeks on end by the road and NO ONE has to call the authorities anonymously. When I have called Waste Pro to advise them of the items NOT being picked up, their answer has always been, Call the county commissioners or 911! Its obvious they feel it is NOT their problem. So, if its NOT their problem, then they can at least be a solution to this problem! Having drivers notify the dispatcher and the dispatcher notifying Code Enforcement will eliminate anonymous complaints! How hard is this to gure out? NOW that the board has eliminated anonymous complaints, we will see discarded items sit on the roads FOREVER because some people may be afraid to speak out for fear of being targeted by neighbors in retaliation. Sincerely, Daphne ChristieSolution for anonymous code complaintsEditor, The News: The articles and letters in The News of late make it increasingly hard for the average citizen to understand the direction in which our county is heading. On the one hand we can read about progress on the long awaited Capital City-to-the-Seas Trails, the widening of 319 and expansion of programs at TCCs Wakulla Environmental Institute. While the BOCC seems quite positive about these developments, one needs to look at the details of what they are supporting and not supporting. Taking the WEI rst, the board sounds very keen on the aquaculture program that seems like a natural t for Wakulla County. However, most of the BOCC does not seemed concerned about improving water quality and reducing coastal erosion, factors which are essential in sustaining a viable aquaculture environment for oysters. Well functioning wetlands provide these functions given adequate buffers, yet the BOCC continues on the path of dismantling the current protections we do have. Some commissioners and letter writers have attempted to make it seem that the buffers put in place by two previous commissions are arbitrary and unnecessary. Yet anyone familiar with the science of wetland buffers, and the diligent work of the committee that crafted the Wetlands Ordinance, knows that the 75-foot buffer with variances possible to 35 feet already represented a signi cant compromise from what are minimally effective protection zones for wildlife, pollutant removal and erosion prevention. Just as with speed limits, one has to have a standard from which variances provide accommodation when warranted. And I would much rather have local environmental oversight than relying on a governor who has eviscerated the DEP and is actually suing to prevent the cleanup of Chesapeake Bay. Another WEI project remains a puzzler. How is it a good idea for TCC to take over management of a large portion of Wakulla Springs State Park that contains a sinkhole recently cleaned and revitalized and turn it into a privately managed camping/trailer park? I thought our commissioners wanted to preserve Wakulla Springs, yet they are touting this as the kind of development Wakulla needs. The job projections for this seem illusory, with more of an eye towards snapping up some state money (yours and mine) than creating a viable educational and economic opportunity for our area. I would like to see the WEI do something with the land that they have already acquired and establish a track record of success before considering turning over our Jewel on a 50-year lease. It would be like turning over your prized new car to your 16 year old. Let them grow up rst. Lastly, on the endlessly raised topic of property rights, it is interesting to note that we never hear any statements about the preciousness of those rights when they are sacri ced for development such as highway widening. The trump card with property rights always seems to reside with those who have the most power. Native American Indians found this out the hard way when the U.S. Government made and broke one treaty after another with them to pave way for development. My Irish ancestors found out the same thing while being starved by British landholders during the Great Famine. Property rights are not absolute and require support from legitimate authority to be sustained, as well as acceptance of compromising them on occasion for the common good. That might mean road construction or it might mean environmental protection, but it should always mean smart, wellreasoned development. And, in a democracy it should be up for the people to decide, not those with the most money or power. James Hennessey CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Wakulla County has allocated time, money and talent in the pursuit of tourism, speci cally eco-tourism. So why would a vocal few want to jeopardize an opportunity to enhance that industry? The TCC Wakulla Environmental Institute has extended a seemingly win-win-win proposal to the Florida Park Service. In return for a 50 year lease on approximately 2,000 acres of land (located near Wakulla Springs) purchased by the state in 1999, the institute has stated it will commit to: Correcting all the conditions that caused Cherokee Sink to be closed for health reasons; it will also provide at the sink a sewer-connected restroom facility, designated parking, a picnic area and a boardwalk to prevent erosion; Constructing a 60 site campground with ranger station, designed in cooperation with the Florida Park Service; Providing invasive plant management and a re program; Removing septic tanks in Wakulla Springs State Park and having the parks systems connected to the county sewer system (up to a $250,000 savings for the Park Service); Restoring the area based on a prescription determined by park biologists and the Florida Park Director; Allowing no equestrian use of property and no cave diving; No construction of any building over the subterranean cave system that leads to Wakulla Springs; Not using Florida Park Service personnel for the purpose of day-today operation of the site. In return, under the provisions of the TCC proposal and the Environmental Institutes leadership, the agreement would provide the next generation of Park Rangers and Land Management personnel with an invaluable tool of learning a tool that many educational facilities do not and cannot provide onsite training. A hands-on learning experience goes beyond the classroom, textbook and theory and could make the Institute a sought after educational experience while providing Wakulla County with much-needed employment, income and tourism opportunities. Environmentally conscious students, faculty and visitors would discover Wakullas beauty and lifestyle; Wakulla Springs would bene t from having an outside professional partnership and monetary resource; and, most importantly, our children would have an opportunity to attend a respected educational facility. Visitors, students, staff would patronize our businesses, eat in our restaurants, stay in our hotels, hire our eco guides and leave with an experience to be shared with friends and colleagues. The planned campground would give travelers an opportunity to experience the natural Florida and develop an appreciation of the importance of balancing nature with growth. Having said all this, it is dif cult to imagine that there would be deniers of the TCC proposal. It might well be only a noisy handful of people who are opposed and of those, some will always fear change, however the danger is that they will cause the state park system to blink resulting in a loss of all that could be gained before it is even tried. Those who are complaining seem to be doing so based on such non-empirical criteria as it has never been done before or when I worked there we did not need outside help or the doom-and-gloom group are citing a bunch of what ifs i.e., What if the sewer pipes leak or are misplaced? and What if the environmental institutes professional team of biologists are not competent to make important environmental decisions? or What if the RV site is overrun with people who do not respect their surroundings? When people who have been lauding eco-tourism as the answer to so many of our countys economic and environmental concerns and who have worked hard to put money into the hands of our Department of Tourism cannot get behind an environmentally sound project, established and run by an environmental institute dedicated to environmental issues what will they support? If you care about the economic future of Wakulla County, if you care about a quality of life that affords our children the possibility of pursuing careers in their own hometown, whether it be as eco guides, the next generation of park rangers and land managers, restaurant owners, hospitality workers, biologists, educators or a multitude of other jobs you will take this question seriously. There can be no balance or growth for our community if a small group of people continually pretend to want our community to ourish yet when something as important as education and as wholesome as eco tourism presents itself they yell No, No, not here. To voice support for the TCC Wakulla Environmental Institutes proposal, Floridians can make their voices heard by emailing mackiek@ tcc. .edu.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 Page 5Areaders speak out More OpinionsEditor, The News: I am writing to express my misgivings about the Wakulla Environmental Institute/ TCC proposal to sublease 2,000 acres of Wakulla State Park at Cherokee Sink for the development of a campground. As a long time resident of Wakulla County, lifelong scuba diver and camper. It would be terri c to have these activities close by for family and friends, but this is not the right location. The risks to the springs system and aquifer far outweigh any imagined bene ts. The Florida Park Service acted wisely and with vision when they acquired the parcel to help protect the springs and ensure improved water quality to them. Slowed by budget restraints, they have successfully restored acres of wiregrass and long-leaf pines to the area. The endangered Gopher tortoise has now ourished in this area while becoming decimated in other places as a result of habitat loss. They are not alone in sharing habitat with other ora and fauna. The park service has cleaned years of debris out of the sink and the surrounding area to help restore it to optimal health. The proposal states the area has been unmanaged for decades which is not accurate. Providing environmental education for the next generation of park and land managers is an important mission. TCC has an excellent reputation for community outreach, innovative programming and providing quality education. The institution clearly has experience in managing large-scale endeavors, how does that translate to the kind of enterprise proposed? It would be a shame to have that reputation blemished by this poorly conceived project. Why couldnt scienti c research, handson training and working experience be offered to students while in partnership with Wakulla Springs Park and its exemplary employees at the existing facilities without a campground? There is a long history of conducting scienti c projects at the park. The scale of this campground proposal is grandiose and unlikely to be fully utilized. Local campgrounds are seldom near capacity. The proposed campground is a mile from the waterfront. It is doubtful that most people will walk, thereby necessitating additional parking at the Springs and more trafc on the roads. Why build something to this scale, destroy native habitat, risk increased pollution of our watershed and add pressure on the county and park infrastructure, such as sewer lines and roads, without apparent bene t to the general citizenry and potentially resulting in irreparable harm? On the surface this appears to be a wonderful idea but there are too many unanswered questions. In-depth feasibility studies, environmental impact assessments and cost/bene t analysis should be conducted as a first step. Here in Wakulla County one only needs to drive a few miles to see large parcels of land that have been clear cut and left vacant because someone had a great idea. It would be tragic if that happened to a place as special and unique as Wakulla Springs. Sincerely, Kathryn Gibson CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: I just wanted to add my two cents in support of an amazing person in Wakulla County. That man is Steve Fults. I met Steve under what you might call less that cordial circumstances. I was living in Tarpine subdivision at the time. As rumor control had it, I was told that Steve had something to do with the Wakulla County Code department coming down on me and my home at the time. Upon hearing of this, Steve wasted no time in getting in touch with me in person and explaining the situation and that he had nothing whatsoever to do with my situation. I appreciated his candor and his being up front with me from the beginning. Since then I have come to know and highly respect this man of impeccable character and trustworthiness. He is extremely hard working. In fact, I wish the man would slow down a bit and take life a bit more relaxed and have told him so. He volunteers for everything and does all he can at keeping the Tarpine subdivision and airport in tip top condition. I cant say enough about the guy. I only wish I had his fortitude and sense of fair play. Please consider Steve in your vote for commissioner in the August Republican primary. You will not be disappointed. The man means what he says and will do everything in his power to assist the taxpayers of Wakulla County. I also like to write in support of what Sue Damon had to say in reference to the upcoming realignment of the highways 98 and 319 intersection. For the life of me, I cant gure that one out either. The tremendous expense of rerouting 319, the traf c conjestion because of it, etc. We have a perfectly acceptable and well designed Y intersection there now. It smoothes the ow of traf c to the coast and is very safe. The millions of dollars that will be spent on this unnecessary new intersection could have been spent much more effectively on four laneing highway 319 from Crawfordville to Tallahassee. You need only ask the thousands of motorists who are inconvenienced and subject to dangerous road conditions each day on their way to work in Tallahassee and back home again. Finally, I would like to thank our upcoming political hopefuls for keeping their vote for me political signs at a minimum (so far). Last election, it really got out of hand with one individual particularly. Bill Catalina Crawfordville Editor, The News: When you purchase a piece of property, what can you do with it? For reasons usually designed to best serve the community, the property will be designated as zoned for agriculture, commercial, or housing density. The price is also affected by this zoning. If wetlands are protected for the bene t of everyone, is it fair to purchase them and then expect to get zoning changes so you can assert your property rights, and if you believe that is so, where does it stop? Why cant I build an apartment building instead of a house on my lot? Maybe I could make some money by turning part of my property into a land ll, is it still my property right? Common sense says that protecting our water bene ts our community for shing, recreation, tourism, quality of life, and property values. Wakulla is one of the few waterfront counties in Florida not spoiled by the concrete coalition of developers and real estate cronies. Lets keep our county and what makes it wonderful protected for all of us, and protect all of our property rights. Jeannie Beck Panacea Editor, The News: Each week The Wakulla News publishes at least one, often more than one, article about the Senior Citizens Center. This week was no exception. The article on Jerry Evans was of interest as he described the numerous programs the center offers. The programs are numerous and offer many valued services. Yet,one day this past week, shortly after lunchtime, the center was virtually empty. It was so quiet the swishing of the custodians mop could be heard as he diligently went about his duties. Except for staff, the building was empty. There were no activities going on and none were scheduled before the next morning. After obtaining the July 2014, activities calander, it became apparent that this was a typical day. The calander was mostly blank with the exception of the period between 10 a.m. and lunchtime each day. There were two or maybe three events scheduled for 2 p.m. for the entire month. The topics of the events showed little imagination and were the same old ones from the past decade. Talk about a rut! The original concept for senior centers was to provide a place where the seniors of a community could gather for socializing and recreating. They were to be fun places to go. Friendships formed, fun and games occurred, and the intellect and talents were stimulated. Oftentimes, the centers helped bridge the gaps created by retirement, physical changes, and death of a spouse. These things do not happen in an empty building, with an empty schedule, and unvaried activities. Yes, theres something to be said for sticking with the tried and true but only to a point. Perhaps, our senior center is in need of more than money. An infusion of new ideas, more energic volunteers, new persons to lead groups, present fresh stimulating educational programs, or coordinate a variety of arts, crafts, and active events might be just the ticket. At present, the center is extending a well-worn and tired hand. Next time you want to change it up a little, get a great idea, learn something new and want to share it with the world, or just want to make a difference, pick-up the telephone and call the center or drive to the center. Speak up and say, I have a great idea, or Im really good at this, and This is what I would like to share with the seniors. If everyone did that, just one topic a year, spent as little as one hour at the center, the activities calander would be jampacked. There would be events for every interest, at times from morning to evening. Then the senior center wouldnt be quite and lonely. It wouldnt be the same old same old Over the past decade, the center has enjoyed a wonderful reputation. It has served the seniors and community well. It is a credit to everyone who has had a hand in it. As money becomes harder to come by and the center expands its services, the centers leadership needs to be mindful of what the original mission of senior centers was, to be a social and educational venue for seniors. CindyLee Calaluca PanaceaEditor, The News: My book Southern Shock Americana was meant to do more than simply be read. It was meant to inspire change, or, at the very least, create an awakening of some sort. For each person that awakening is different. During the past months, the talk-back sessions for the book have become an education for me on many fronts. But there is nothing like sitting down one-on-one with a person as they share how the book challenged, enraged, or presented questions to them they hadnt previously considered. Recently, a candidate running for Wakullas school board met a local resident, in passing, and they spoke about Wakullas school system. When the candidate asked if it was possible to speak at the residents church, the resident referred them to me. Im not sure why. I am not a member of any church within the county. I tend to be non-committal when election season rolls around, nding it best to let my vote speak for itself when the time comes. Therefore, I didnt fully respond to the candidate, or the resident. Instead, I thought about the purpose of the book. During one of the talkbacks, an Oyster Bay resident put forth the idea that this could be a jump-off point for larger discussions, or town-hall type meetings in the community. Wakulla SPEAKS is exactly that: A chance for the community to come together and discuss things we normally shy away from and, at the same time, become the very things that control us on a daily basis. This rst discussion is a partnering of the Wakulla County Christian Coalition, and the Southern Shock Initiative Initiative existing currently in name only), and is titled Seeing Wakulla County School System through the eyes of Wakullas Black Community. The talk begins Monday, July 28, at 6:30 p.m. at the Wakulla County Library. Those running for of ce, or currently serving on the school board, are welcomed to be members of the audience. But its the parents, students, teachers, and administrators who are Black American that will participate on the panel and be given a chance to address their concerns. Others wishing to make a brief two to three minute statement concerning their child attending a Wakulla school (or addressing the system in general), are free to contact us at wakullaspeaks@ gmail.com. Our next discussion, which has yet to be scheduled, will deal with the aftermath of an incident that occurred in the past, but affected us recently: The painting of a Southern Cross/Confederate Flag on the community lion. We would like to have both sides of this conversation represented so that we can come to a better understanding of what it means to us all, and do so in a manner that shows respect and camaraderie for both sides. Those interested in participating can also reach out to us. If you have an idea for an upcoming Wakulla SPEAKS, email or visit us on Facebook. Wakulla SPEAKS website will be up and running next month.

Staff reportsChurch BriefsBy JAMES L. SNYDERThis year I celebrate my 20th year as a practicing grandfather. I am not sure that after 20 years I know anything more about being a grandfather than I did before. I have not found any books written on how to be a grandfather, maybe I should write one. I have enjoyed those 20 years and it just seems to be getting better. One of the interesting things about a grandfather is spending time with the grandchildren, especially when they are trying to watch a movie. I enjoy a movie every now and again, but when it comes to little girls, they do not seem to have the same taste in movies as their grandfather. One of the movies so important to little girls these days is the movie called Frozen. As it happened, we had to have a special night set aside to watch this movie with the granddaughters. I figured, how hard could it really be? I consented on this movie because I thought this would give those tired, overworked little gray cells upstairs a chance to relax and not work so hard. After all, how can you think when you are watching something like a movie for children? I also thought it would be nice to rest my body as well as my eyes, if I can get away with it. After all, who wants to follow the plot, if there is any such thing in a childrens movie. We had settled down to watch this exciting little girls movie, I was half dozing and then I began to think about the manuscript I was working on. I had been having trouble with a certain aspect of that manuscript and as I sat there, I begin to think about how I could x that problem. It almost came to me, but then I heard, Grandpa, grandpa, grandpa look at that, look at that! The cheering granddaughters brought me back to the land of the living and the reality as they were watching it. Both of them at the same time begin to explain to me what had happened and what was going to happen. Between the two little chatterboxes, I had no idea what they were talking about. What is a grandfather to do but smile broadly and pretend you are listening. I tried to follow the movie, but then I remembered that in the afternoon I had to write a column for my newspapers. As of yet, I did not have an idea what that column would be. I like to start with the title and then following that develop a story line. As yet, I did not have an acceptable column title. As I mused about this, thoughts were beginning to gel and that little light bulb began to icker. Thoughts were beginning to come into place, and then I heard some loud screaming and clapping and two little girls were jumping up and down singing, Let it go, let it go, let it go. I sat up in my chair, looking around trying to figure out what in the world they were trying to let go. It is at this point that grandmothers are no help to grandfathers. Grandmothers can say, You girls watch the movie with grandpa while I make supper. Personally, I do not think it is fair. I would like to make supper one night while grandma joins the little girls watching a movie. The problem is, nobody would eat the supper that I would prepare, not even Yours Truly. What these little girls were all excited about was something I was trying to figure out. It did not make any sense to me, but they were excited, laughing, shouting and singing. Of course, it is hard to tell the difference between shouting and singing, especially in todays musical world. They were absolutely enjoying themselves and I tried to focus in on the source of their enjoyment. Grandpa, both of them yelled at me in absolute delight, sing the song with us. What grandpas go through while entertaining their grandchildren. And so, I joined in singing, Let it go, let it go, let it go. I got those words down pretty good, but the rest of the song was a mysterious blank to me. They were excited about singing it and soon I was excited about watching them sing it. That evening when the little ones were snuggled into bed, I remember what David said. For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalms 30:5). In the Hebrew, so they tell me, the word joy, also means singing. My faith in Jesus Christ has brought me to a wonderful place where I can sing, Let it go, let it go, let it go.The Rev. James L.

Wow, what an opening statement at a funeral service. I met my client nearly four years ago as we buried his brother. My client is a kind and dear man in his 70s. Throughout the years, I have seen him around town, and he has never failed to pull a faded and tattered picture from his wallet of his beautiful wife and tell me how much he loves her. Nearly three months ago, my client and his daughter came to my funeral home to make pre-arrangements for his wife. Late last week, while directing a service for a different family, I received the dreaded call. The nurse on the other end of the line notified me that my clients wife had died.I was heartbroken for him for I knew in his heart, his life had ended as Mona Gay drew, and then released her last breath. Unfortunately, I could not go to the nursing home myself, so I sent my dear husband in my stead to respectfully gather Mona Gays remains, and bring them back to the funeral home. All through the night, I worried about my client. I knew he was devastated over his loss. Even when one has anticipated the loss of a loved one who has been ill for quite some time, the actual occurrence of death is always dreadful. Early the following morning, my client came to the funeral home to finalize the details of his beloveds services. As he sat beside me, he reached into his wallet and pulled out the old, faded and tattered picture of his wife, that I had seen on many previous occasions. True as ever, his bright blue eyes radiated deep love as only true love can do. This day was different though, his eyes were bluer, brighter and more deeply radiating as tears ran down his cheeks, and he spoke of his lost love. When it was time to leave, Milton could barely stand. His legs were weak, and his body seemed frail. Milton and his daughter came early for their visitation. He was hesitant and did not want to see her in her casket. He was so heartbroken and did not think he could bear the anguish of this new life without her. He told me that he thought he might die too, and that his sorrow was too painful to survive. He apologized for crying, not realizing that his tears, his fears and his agonizing sadness were a great honor to his wife. At the funeral, Miltons strength failed him. He fell to his knees as he approached his beloveds casket for the last moment they would share together. His tears and acclamations of tender love broke my heart, yet renewed my faith that love endures when all else fails. The beauty of Elviss voice filled my chapel that morning, and the sweetness of his words filled my heart, but the love I had witnessed from Milton for his beloved Mona Gay will never be expressed through the earthly talent of a great vocalist. Their tender love was one of sacred grandeur.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 17, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunitySpecial to The NewsTucked in the left hand corner of the new Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce Annex are two desks with staff members who dont wear uniforms, but they often get involved when a case is being investigated. They are not sworn law enforcement of cers but they know the background of many case investigations that the law enforcement staff housed inside the same building have been working on. They are the WCSO Victim Advocates, Paige Strickland and Stacy Harvey. The two advocates work individually or in a team depending on the circumstances. They believe close communications is a very effective way to serve the community. The two women are funded through the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant that is supplied through the Florida Attorney Generals of ce. A nurse in a previous employment, Paige Strickland has been helping Wakulla County victims of crimes for 18 months. Stacy Harvey is newer to the job. With her social services background, Stacy Harvey has been a Victim Advocate for a little more than three months. Strickland is a mother of three children and her husband Rocky is employed by the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce as a detention deputy. Harvey is a single mom with one son. While Strickland has a nursing background, Harvey has a background in social services and food and nutrition. She has also served as a school volunteer. Mondays usually bring the Victim Advocates lots of activities as they are in the middle of assisting victims of crime from over the weekend. But their work isnt always related to helping victims. On a mid-afternoon visit, Strickland and Harvey assisted a family who needed a battery replacement for a Project Lifesaver transmitter. On this particular day the battery was replaced so that the client could be found if she walked away from her home or family members. After helping the family, Strickland brought the visitors over to Sheriff Charlie Creels ofce where their wish to meet the Sheriff of Wakulla County could be granted. The Victim Advocate served her client while also making her very happy to meet the sheriff. Harveys background for helping the public came through the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth and the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. She has discovered rst-hand about the social needs in Wakulla County. Strickland spent a chunk of her life working in the medical eld in the emergency room and in radiation therapy at a hospital. She considered her patients as victims of the crime of cancer. Harvey added that her clients with Big Brothers Big Sisters were also victimized in their lives in one way or another. We work closely together, said Strickland. Its nice to be about to communicate and know what the other person is working on. Juvenile sex cases and domestic batteries are two areas where the Victim Advocates nd themselves on a regular basis. We might get called out to transport someone to the Refuge House or we may be able to offer support for victims of res or assist with hospital runs when care is required, said Strickland. Every day is a little bit different, said Harvey. Its rewarding to help somebody get out of a bad situation and get them the resources they need to heal. Strickland and Harvey may also have to help a victim of a fraud on more than one occasion as they ght to regain their stolen identity. Victims in sex crimes may need a place to stay or transportation to a doctor and the Victim Advocates are there. In some cases there isnt anyone to take care of them, said Strickland. It has been a real eye opener at times. I knew some people lived hour to hour but I didnt realize they lived that way all their lives. Harvey knows that the need for help is great in Wakulla County through her experiences with the Coalition for Youth. With Operation Santa at the holidays, residents have asked for blankets and basic necessities, not just frivolous items. I know we had one family ask for a bed because they had four kids sharing a bed, said Harvey. The Victim Advocates can help lead clients in the right direction as they le for insurance due to injuries, le injunctions, counseling and safety planning for when an individual is released from jail. It takes courage to walk away, said Strickland. In domestic violence cases, statistically the victim wont leave until the seventh time. We are constantly following up with victims. The Victim Advocates may work with family members following suicides or unattended deaths. You never know what you will be called upon to do, said Strickland. I had a case where I nished decorating a birthday cake when a female needed to be taken to the hospital following a death in the family. I knew I could do that for her. Sometimes the job requires the advocates to provide transportation to the Childrens Home Society for juveniles to be interviewed or helping out as was the case with the Project Lifesaver battery replacement situation. Strickland said the Lifesaver program is outstanding and those wanting to take advantage of the service should contact the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center rst. But Project Lifesaver is available to young individuals who need the service as well. The advocates have also found themselves taking care of animals. You have to be open and willing to listen, said Strickland. Our goal is to get them to the people who can help. Is the end result worth all the required effort? Both Strickland and Harvey give a resounding yes. I cant see myself walking away, said Strickland. Im kind of hooked now. It is absolutely worth the effort, added Harvey. The most important thing is to always follow through. Their work is the behind the scenes, unsung work for the agency, but work that is critical to the citizens of our county, said Sheriff Charlie Creel. At the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce we are all together in our mission to continue to improve the quality of life for our citizens. Our Victim Advocates are a big part of that.Special to The NewsThrough the Duke Energy Scholarship Program, Duke Energy Florida awarded merit-based scholarships to the children of six employees.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy MARJ LAW On Wednesday mornings at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce range, women get together to practice shooting their handguns. Its a great group and anyone can come. We learn how to handle our own guns in a safe manner and well often handle each others guns as well. This gives us a broader knowledge of handguns and how they operate. Recently, one of the gals brought out her Sig .380. Not only is it a nice size for purse carrying, its good looking with etched scrollwork on the metal and pearl on the grips. Grips? Grips are pieces of wood, metal, composite, rubber or bone that sit in your hand as you hold the gun. Most handguns have grips that can be changed if you dont like the ones that came with your gun. To choose a grip, youll want to consider how and where you plan to use the gun, and how you like it to feel in your hand. Size matters. If the grip is too large or too small for your hands, youll nd it dif cult to control the gun. Smooth or checkered? Some grips have a strong texture with lots of crosshatches cut into them. This is checkering. I prefer these because they give hot, sweaty hands a firmer grasp while target shooting. Checkering might be on the front, back or sides of the grip. Sometimes youll nd checkering only on the sides or only front and back. Some grips have nger notches. These, like checkering, can help to stabilize your hands. Some are longer than others. While a shorthandled gun is good for carry, you might want to nd longer grips to give your baby ngers a stronghold. Rubber grips have a soft feel and often have cut channels. The channels act like checkering in that you can get a rmer hold on the gun. If youll be shooting for a while, this might be easier on your hand than a wood or metal grip. Grips dont always have flat sides. Some have what they call palm swells. You might like the added width where you palm hits the grips. If you carry your gun in your pocket, holster or purse, youll probably want a short grip that wont take up a lot of space. If youre shooting for target practice, and may continue for an hour or two, nd what gives you both comfort and stability. And, if youre looking to make a fashion statement, you can nd grips to match your shoes, purse, and belt. Its all about priorities!Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsGetting a grip with gripsCounty commission repeals wetlands ordinanceThe shing continues to be good HOME ON THE RANGE From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Here it is the middle of July and the shing in our area continues to be good. The water temperature is around 83 degrees, the water cant get much clearer than it is now and the grass on the bottom is as pretty and healthy as I have seen it in many years. Those facts, plus the amount of bait we have in the bay, fishing is bound to be what it is. Offshore shing is also very good. This the time of year that manatees mate and Capt. David Fife said he saw a group of about 12 right off the beach at Shell Point. Just a reminder that they are not just found up in the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers. On July 19, C-Quarters Marina in Carrabelle will be holding the 10th Annual Youth Fishing Tournament. This is open to all kids 16 and younger and sponsored by Jimmy Crowder, FishFloridaTag.org and local businesses. On Aug. 2 and 3, the 11th annual Kingfish Shootout will be held out of C-Quarters Marina with a captains meeting at C-Quarters on the night of Aug. 1. The shootout is for king sh only and entry fee remains at $250 per boat. The guarantee payout is $16,500 for 10 places and the big king wins $5,000. Last year the tournament was won by Tommy Merrell with a 46.2 pound king. This tournament was one way Jimmy Crowder could honor his daughter Lisa Crowder Jackson, who died of leukemia. All proceeds from the tournament go to the Leukemia Research Foundation and over the past 10 years $703,000 has been raised to help nd a cure for this awful disease. Over the week of the Fourth the bay was covered with boats shing, scalloping and just riding. Tom Riddle from Tifton and some friends were out fishing for Spanish when a huge tiger shark swam under the boat. Below it were about six big cobia. They started chumming the water and got the cobia feeding. When all was said and done they boated a 20, 40 and 60 pound cobia. Mike Pearson, also from Tifton went out and caught a 40 pound cobia in the same area. Capt. David Fife had a trip last Friday and they came in with 10 trout and four nice reds. He said they also lost quite a few nice reds. I took one of my neighbors out one day last week and we shed an area he said he had never been to. We shed with new penny and white Gulps and caught and released about nine nice trout. Bill had two to the boat over 22 inches and they got off. He told me he went back and thinks he found the same area and he did really well on the last of the high tide. Lots of trout, Spanish and blues are being caught from around the Government stake and the Ochlockonee Shoals. The mouth of the Ochlocknee is producing some big reds and quite a few trout. Dwayne Broadway caught his limit trolling and casting a gold spoon. Capt. Kent Taylor said some nice sh are being caught off the dock at Mashes Sands using live shrimp and one of their customers caught and released a 30 inch trout near the mouth of the river. Dr. Norm Griggs said they had been catching some big trout shing in 10 feet of water. On Saturday after the rain nally quit I took Steve Lewis and his son Austin and daughter Amanda. We caught a lot of sh but not what we hoped for. Amanda did catch two nice reds and two four foot shovelnose sharks which gave her a real good pull. We scalloped over at Lanark last week and found about 2 gallons. I heard St Joe and Steinhatchee were the places to go. Fishing is good but still very hot. Take plenty of water and leave the beer for cleaning the sh. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing! www.WakullaDiving.com Wakulla Diving Center, Inc.

It treats an isolated wetland the swamp in your backyard with the same amount of protection as a pristine marsh or estuary that I think everyone agrees needs extra protection, Merritt said. Whatever good things there are about the wetlands ordinance the bad, to me, far outweighs the good. Merritt previously brought forth an agenda item to delay the implementation date of the repeal until after the referendum. However, he said his opinion has evolved since then. If we repeal it now, at least the people who are waiting to do something with their property can go ahead and get a building permit, Merritt said. Not to destroy wetlands, but to build a house on their lot. When we put this on a referendum, I will honor whatever choice the citizens make. Commission Chairman Richard Harden said citizens should have full use of their property. He said the ordinance has caused some lots, especially smaller ones, to be unbuildable. If we repeal this wetlands ordinance tonight, were still going to have protections according to the state standard, Harden said. If someone wants to sue according to those, they can sue the state and not Wakulla County. I am voting to repeal this, so the citizens who have bought property intending to use it can hopefully peruse their dream. I believe they can do that, and our wetlands will still be protected. About a dozen other citizens stood to speak on the issue. Eugene Watkins said he never expected commissioners to resist the will of the people. The right thing to do would be to wait, Watkins said. Sandy Taylor said the county would be open to a boatload of problems if the ordinance is repealed before voters have a chance to decide that it should be reinstated. James Hennessey said the ordinance itself was more visionary than problematic, and repealing it does nothing to promote growth. Bob Danzey said he supports the ordinance repeal, since the move lifts an additional layer of government. This doesnt say you can build in the wetlands, Danzey said. It only says you can build (outside of) the 25-foot buffer of wetlands, instead of 75 feet. Its a standard that the state uses. Victor Lambou spoke on behalf of the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance. Im just curious as to why youre in such a mad rush to repeal our local wetlands protections, Lambou said. That means youre going to do it in 10 days, when our citizens will be telling you in just about four months if they want local control or not? Why the rush? Why now? Ive read the tea leaves, and I believe the majority of you are going to tell our citizens that you dont trust them. Madeline Carr represented the Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park conservation group at the meeting, and said the repeal of the model wetlands protection ordinance is irresponsible. Carr invited the public to an event at 6:30 p.m., Aug. 23 at the community center to learn about wetlands and springs. Please report orphaned or injured wildlife 926-8308

The docks grant was secured in June through the Department of Economic Opportunity for $1,051,660. A workshop is scheduled at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 17, to discuss design, cost estimates and projections. Plans will be voted on at a subsequent meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 22. At the July 10 meeting of the St. Marks City Council, City Manager Zoe Mans eld said grants came in for the old re nerys brown elds cleanup as well. In another matter, the St. Marks arti cial reef project was also discussed at the meeting. Organization of Arti cial Reefs Chairman Alan Richardson said the volunteer consulting group will contribute $15,000 in matching funds toward the arti cial reef project, with the state contributing $55,000 through the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund. Richardson said OAR is now tasked with writing a request for proposal to hire a contractor to place material on the shallow sea oor to create the reef. He said OAR is mandated to put out a bid for at least ve contractors, and the City of St. Marks makes the determination for the permit. Were just consultants, and contributing funds, Richardson said. OAR is all volunteer, we dont get paid, this is our passion. Were here to help, and were ready to go. Capt. Tony Murray, director of the Big Bend Coastal Conservancy and designer of the EcoSMART reef, gave updates on BBCCs arti cial reef project, in which the group will deploy the rst few reefs at no expense to city. Because the reef design is a somewhat progressive eco-speci c reef design, the city is allowing Murray to carry out the arti cial reef project through the support of the BBCC. In other matters: Sam Martin, director of the Tourist Development Council, presented an outline of what the TDC is working on, and has accomplished. With the help of a BP grant that ends this month, the TDC was able to design a new website that will roll out July 29. Other forms of media and advertising were also created, including a new visitors guide, brochure, rack card and an updated logo. Billy Bishop asked that a new, more visible Stone Crab Festival sign be placed in a prominent area of St. Marks. Council member Ray Stokes agreed, and said the proposal would be investigated further. The matter will be discussed again at the next meeting on Aug. 14 when all council members are present. Bishop spoke on behalf of St. Marks Yacht Club, to ask that the city abandon and give Wakulla Street to the club a platted piece of property the club leases from the city because of a lawsuit led by DEP. A $21,000 ne will be incurred if a submerged land lease issue is not resolved by Aug. 11. That will settle our land lease problem, Bishop said. We cannot get the submerged land lease without some mechanism to get that right of way. Bishop asked for an easement of one foot on the waterline of the property, to temporarily settle DEPs legal problem. City Attorney Ron Mowrey said no action could be taken without an advertised public hearing, but said he would intervene with DEP on behalf of the city, and as a friend of the yacht club.St. Marks of cials anxious to begin work on new dock

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 Page 13A As the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Whether you are traveling by planes, trains or automobiles there are often events that are unexpected and out of your control. When this happens, it can be challenging for individuals to remain calm and accurately assess the situation to plan a response. In the Auxiliary, we are trained to plan for the unexpected and use our knowledge to formulate a response that will not make the situation worse. It is this practice that helps us problem solve without becoming a part of the problem. Many past articles have discussed the need to pre-plan for a day on the water check your equipment, le a oat plan to let others know where you are going and for how long, discuss safety with passengers and continually assess your surroundings. However, if you feel you or someone you know could benefit from a more detailed review of safe boating and how you can become a responsible boater, consider our upcoming About Safe Boating class. The class will be offered on Aug. 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Wakulla County Agricultural Extension Center, Room 3. The center is located at 84 Cedar Avenue in Crawfordville. For information call Chuck Hickman, (850) 926-9262. Passing this class quali es the student for the Florida boat operators ID card.

By JESSICA COOK HALEReduced mobility and localized diet seems to have developed in Florida by the Middle Archaic at both inland and terrestrial sites, and eventually con rmed sedentism can be deduced by the Late Archaic. What we are exploring here in this project is the hypothesis that groups in the Big Bend were also becoming more sedentary during the Middle Archaic, just as their neighbors along the Atlantic coastline and south of Tampa along the Gulf shore were, using rich coastal resources just as the Late Archaic groups later did. We do know that shell deposits exist at Middle Archaic sites along the Big Bend, both in terrestrial contexts and submerged ones and this begs the question: were groups living along the Big Bend at this time also starting to use and possibly occupy sites year round? Our study seeks to gather more data, then, that could suggest to us what sorts of activities were taking place at these submerged sites in Apalachee Bay. We also hope to compare conditions within the Big Bend to conditions along the Georgia coast, and see if we can tease out any suggestions as to why there is ample Middle Archaic here, and so very little there. To address this, I am beginning new excavation and analysis of various submerged Middle Archaic sites in Apalachee Bay. These sites were initially identi ed and explored by the Aucilla River Prehistory Project (ARPP), beginning in 1983. Four seemingly simply questions will be asked during this study: 1) How quickly did these shell middens accumulate? Long-term use of a site might lead to more shell, deposited over a longer period of time, whereas an equal amount of shell that was rapidly deposited might indicate discrete events, such as feasting. 2) When did they eat it were they using the local resources all year round, or just during speci c times of the year? 3) How do artifact assemblages compare to the larger regional context? 4) When were these sites occupied? These kinds of questions can be answered by submerged sites, just as they are for terrestrial ones, and are all the more important when one considers the fact that large areas of the southeastern U.S. are now submerged. Without the inclusion of datasets gathered from submerged sites, our understanding of this period will remain woefully incomplete. It is also worth noting that during this period when climate change and sea level rise appears to be again impacting our world, we would do well to pay attention to how prehistoric groups reacted to their own shifting geography as their coastlines retreated to their modern positions. This can offer us insight into how modern coastal communities may react to encroaching seas, and in our modern globalized and interdependent economy, we need all the insight we can get. Furthermore, additional survey of submerged sites will allow us to understand how archaeological sites are affected by submergence. This is critical knowledge that can help us assess how we might best deal with the ongoing erosion of coastal sites along our modern shores, so that we can best preserve and protect the invaluable information they contain about the prehistoric people who lived there.

FWC Law Enforcement weekly report This report represents some events the FWC handled over the past week; however, it does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement. NORTHWEST REGION BAY COUNTY: Lt. Keen and Of cer Moore were on patrol when they located a subject operating a personal watercraft with the hull identification number removed. The owner said they purchased the watercraft but had no paperwork as to the sale. The personal watercraft was seized for further investigation. Of cer Gore was on patrol at Lake Powell when he observed a subject pull up to the boat ramp and during an inspection observed signs of impairment. Field sobriety tasks were given, which the boater failed. The boater refused to submit to a breath test and was booked into the Bay County Jail for BUI. Of cers Brady and Gore were patrolling Shell Island on the holiday weekend when they observed a small skiff towing a wake boarder in and out of a large number of anchored vessels. The skier wasnt wearing a life jacket and no observer was on board the skiff. The skiff was stopped and cannabis was found on board. Citations were issued for the violations. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: FWC Of cers responded to vessel incident that occurred in Escambia Bay. The incident occurred when four individuals launched their vessel at the 17th Avenue Boat Ramp and traveled to a predetermined fishing spot. When the operator slowed the vessel, he realized one of the passengers, sitting on a pedestal seat at the stern of the vessel, was missing. The of cers assisted with searching the area. Just before dark, the passenger was found deceased. Investigator Goley is currently investigating the incident. Of cer Cushing and Lt. Berryman were on water patrol in Bayou Chico when they observed a woman swimming behind a boat in the middle of a very busy narrow channel.The woman boarded the boat as the officers pulled alongside to conduct a boating safety check and to determine why the vessel did not display any registration decal or numbers.During the initial contact, the operator of the vessel showed signs of impairment.The of cers towed the vessel away from the congested area to a nearby marina and continued their investigation.

OKALOOSA COUNTY: Of cers responded to a boating accident involving two personal watercrafts (PWCs). The accident occurred when two PWCs collided in Destin Pass near Crab Island. One subject was injured and transported to a local hospital. Later in the day, of cers responded to two separate boating accidents in Choctawhatchee Bay and Destin Pass: An occupant who could not swim fell from the rear of a vessel while trying to free an anchor and was later pulled from the water oating and unconscious. The subject was later placed on life support at a local hospital where he has since fully recovered. While investigating this accident, the of cers were directed to another accident in Choctawhatchee Bay which involved a PWC colliding with another vessel. The PWC operator received minor injuries and the PWC was severely damaged.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comThe ecological pressure from exotic invasive plant is a growing concern. These weeds encroach in natural areas, agricultural lands, and in home landscapes. Kudzu, climbing fern, and topical soda apple are all known as invaders which were introduced into the region. Each has its own story of how it arrived here and escaped into a hospitable environment. Once established, these and other plant interlopers have aggressively pushed out native species and changed the landscape. Wildlife habitats have been altered and millions, if not billions, of dollars have been spent in an effort to control these destructive intruders. However, not all plants with aggressive and intrusive characteristics are offshore invaders. Florida Pusley, Richardia scabra, is an excellent example of a homegrown vegetative conquistador. This plant is a low growing annual with leaves which are symmetrically located on the opposite side of the stem. The stems are hairy and can be up to 30 inches long. The leaves can be almost smooth to rough on both the upper and lower surfaces. They may reach 2.5 inches in length and tend to be oval to elliptical shaped. The blooms are usually white, but can occasionally be pink to lavender. The owers emerge at the end of a head-like cluster which potentially can produce 20 or more blooms. These plants bloom most months of the year, but are killed by frost and sub-freezing weather. The blooms usually produce three nutlets covered with wart-like bumps and are the genesis of the next generation. The nutlets are spread by animals and water ow from heavy rains. They may be unintentionally scattered by mowing or transported on equipment to new sites. Florida pusley is frequently found in sandy soils which are common in Wakulla County. The plant is a tenacious competitor for soil nutrients and space on agricultural lands, roadsides and lawns. The scienti c name, Richardia scabra, refers to Richard Richardson, a wealthy 18th century English physician and botanist. The term scabra is Latin for rough, a quality of this plants overall texture. Richardson practiced medicine in northern England, but had studied botany in Holland during his formative years. He had a particular interest in mosses and lichens, but also vascular plants such as Florida Pusley and is credited with cataloguing this species. He corresponded widely with other notable botanists of the day and built the largest contemporary collection of plants at his botanical garden at North Bierley, England. Greenhouses at his estate allowed him to collect and propagate plants from warmer areas. Florida pusley is considered native to the southeastern U.S., Central America and northern South America, but has travelled to other locations. This plant has made appearances in subSaharan Africa and Indiana. Land managers have been challenged to control this native with conventional techniques. Post emergent spraying with herbicides has little to no effect unless the plants are very small. The most successful technique is the application of a preemergent herbicide to suspected infestations, but this chemical will affect other seed too. This method is practical for heavily managed area, but wild sites will continue to produce this aggressive native plant.

& Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014Artists of WakullaArtists of Wakulla is a monthly feature that highlights an individual artist living and working in Wakulla County. If you are an artist, or know an artist, who is interested in being featured, please contact Jenny Odom at firstname.lastname@example.org.By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsA fth-generation Floridian, Ernest Toole pens songs about the place he knows best, Old Florida. He is robust and gregarious, and has a hearty laugh. His white hair is cut close and his deep-set blue eyes are sharp, as is his wit. An avid reader, Toole especially enjoys reading history, and speci cally that of the Sunshine State. Anything about Florida history, I read, he says. Inspired by this unique history, Toole has selfproduced two CDs of original songs and stories about his homeland. He performs his folksy ballads at festivals around the state such as the Annual Florida Folk Festival, the Wildlife Festival at Wakulla Springs, the Museum of Florida History and the John G. Riley House and Museum. The son of a shrimper, he grew up in Mandarin, a small community south of Jacksonville. He got his rst guitar from Sears Department Store when he was 14 years old. Toole recorded his rst CD at From The Heart Recording Studio in Sopchoppy in 2009. Its titled Ernest Toole sings Stories of Old Florida. The next one he recorded in 2012 and titled it, More Stories of Old Florida. On each album the original songs are preceded by a narrative as Toole explains the inspiration for each song. Toole can spin a yarn, and clearly enjoys telling the stories that inspire him to write and sing. Local musicians Frank Lindamood, Barry Sager, Aisha Ivey, Mershell Sherman and Rick Ott joined Toole on the recordings. On the introduction to his rst album he says, I want to dedicate this album to my mother, Helen, who once said, Son, you need a hobby. He says he feels that what he does is like preserving history and that most people walk away having learned something about Florida that they didnt know before. At any one time Ive got about 100 songs in my head that stink, he says, and laughs, about his own creative process. Its like writing books, the longer you do it, the more liberties you can take. Im not gonna let the total truth get in the way of a good story, he says with a sly grin. The practiced words roll of his tongue effortlessly. The problem is that a lot of artists have a hard time breaking out of their mold, he says. Its important to step away from what youre used to, to try to do something different. Toole has performed his music and storytelling since as far back as he can recall. He prefers to work alone, as opposed to the scheduling con icts of having a band, although he has tried. Having a band is like trying to bathe ten cats, he proclaims. The only exception is his 11 year old granddaughter, Sarah Toole. She accompanies him on two recordings, one from each album, Papas Lullaby and Worm Gruntin Time, and performs with him at events. Papas Lullaby is a sentimental song about Tooles father, who operated a shrimp boat along the St. Johns River. In the narrative, he explains when he was a young boy, sometimes late in the afternoon his father would take the family for a cruise upriver on his boat. His father would turn off the motor and let the boat drift with the tide, and hed tell stories and sing songs not so different from what Toole does now. Sarah, a sixth grader at Florida High with a sweet, lilting voice, received a Starcaster guitar for Christmas two years ago. She says that this is what inspired her to start playing with her grandfather. Since then, she has also started playing the baritone ukelele. Its fun, says Sarah. Ive mostly gotten over my stage fright, but Ill have to work on it more if I want to go on American Idol. She has dreams of being a performer, and maybe a Veterinarian, too. Her rst performance with her grandpa was at Hamaknockers BBQ Restaurant. She was so scared, she wouldnt even look at the audience, says Toole. But shes overcome that now. Seemingly wise beyond her years, Sarah explains why she likes the music that her grandfather writes, and why she likes performing together. What I like most about his music is that its positive, she says. So many songs now are about negative things. Shell remember this for the rest of her life, says Toole, proudly. Also known as E.T., Toole served in the Navy for four years during the Vietnam era. After the Navy, and a few odd jobs, he became a salesman working for a chemical company that sold supplies to the newspaper industry. He and his wife, Beverly, a homemaker, have been married for 47 years, and have lived in Wakulla County for almost 30 years. They have four children, nine grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. We started young, and they started young, he quips. Toole enjoys shing on Thursdays with a friend out of St. Marks. He used to be an avid scuba diver, but he doesnt go underwater quite so much these days. I dove for years and have been all over the waters around here, and all around North Florida, he says about his underwater explorations. He collected artifacts in the dark waters, and has an impressive collection of items hes found that is displayed in his of ce on a tall, lighted glass shelf. Theres something about reaching back and touching things that are ten thousand years old, he says. Its just a kick. Toole is currently writing and preparing to go back into the studio to record another album in the same vein. I heard that Rick and Nelle want to go back to Ireland, he jokes, about his longtime friends who run the recording studio. So Ive got to go back and record another album. Ernest and Sarahs next scheduled performance will be November 6 at the John G. Riley House and Museum in Tallahassee. You can purchase the CDs locally, Ernest Toole sings Stories of Old Florida and More Stories of Old Florida, at Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory gift shop, Museum of Florida History gift shop, and at Kastnet Restaurant.Ernest TooleHistory bu and balladeer writes about Old Florida the re c record rnest a n be Nove um i n u can p Stor ie Ol La H ne he recorded in 2012 and titled it, More tories of Old Florida.

Page 2B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 thewakullanews.comAs a young fellow, growing up way down South, I held most Yankees in very low esteem, and so did most of my friends. Dont forget it hadnt been too long since our greatgrandfathers went to war with the Yankees and tried their best to split the country in two so as to get away from them once and for all. But I really didnt know very much, maybe partly because I had never been farther north than southern Kentucky. My cousin from Mobile once offered as proof the song, Chicago. The lyrics went something like this: I saw a man dance with his wife in Chicago, Chicago my home town. Proof positive that in places up north like Chicago, theyre so mean, this fellow who wrote the song, who is probably from Chicago and knows what hes talking about, gured it was unusual to see a man dancing with his wife! So, you see? When I was young, I made some pretty poor decisions, looking back on it now, but one of my better decisions was joining the Navy in the fall of 1959, while a senior in high school. I entered into active duty about as soon as I graduated in June of 1960. I was tired of school, needed to grow up, and learn a little something about the world outside my little hometown, Tallahassee. I needed to mix and mingle with people who didnt necessarily look, act, and think exactly like me and all my friends. My mother was recently widowed too, and I also wanted to get out and be less of a nancial burden on her. Because my southern accent approaches what could be described as a speech impediment, my mother told me before I left that she hoped that my being around others, especially those from the north, I would lose some of that drawl. I didnt say this to her, but I have always had a stubborn streak, and I was privately thinking that if anyone was going to change their manner of speech, it would be them and not me. To this day, I have never understood why Yankees refer to girls as guys. A properly reared southern girl would slap your face if you called her a guy. Something happened up in Milwaukee that began the process of my learning that Yankees could be just as good as Southerners, and it had to do with a baseball game. I have always had a special love for baseball. My daddy used to take me to lots of baseball games at the Centennial Field in Tallahassee. I would drink Delaware Punch, a great soft drink they sold there, and stuff myself with Cracker Jacks while digging for the prize inside the little box. This was in the late 1940s and early 1950s and Tallahassee had a minor league that played there, mostly in the Georgia-Florida league. They were a farm team for the Pittsburgh Pirates and I remember them going through three name changes, the Pirates, Citizens, and Rebels. I remember occasionally a real live professional baseball player would come down to Tallahassee from the major league Pirates. The experience of getting to see him was about as close to seeing Jesus as a young fellow could get. After we got a television station in Tallahassee, I never missed Dizzy Dean broadcasting major league games. I just knew Id die before ever getting to see one of their games in person. Washington, D.C., and St. Louis were as close to the South as any major league teams came to us and that was much too far from home. Uncle Sams Navy came to my rescue. At basic training (Boot Camp), at Great Lakes, Ill., we boots were given one Cinderella liberty, meaning we could actually leave the base as long as we were back no later than midnight. Since we were close to three major league parks, two in Chicago (the Cubs and White Sox), and one in Milwaukee (the Braves), there was no doubt that I was going to my rst major league game. I chose Milwaukee. It was June 1960 and the Braves were playing the Los Angeles Dodgers in County Stadium. So before game time I was in ecstasy, right there at County Stadium with a ticket the Navy had given me for free. Of course the seats were way out in the outfield bleachers, but I didnt care at all. One of my dreams was coming true, but it would get even better than that. I got to the ball park long before game time. Before I entered, I had to take it all in, and walked all the way around the stadium looking up at it in amazement. You could have put 10 Centennial Fields inside it, it was that big. A real ne elderly gentleman must have spotted me, a very young sailor in uniform, who was mightily impressed with the ball park. Anyway, he approached me and asked me if I had a ticket for the game. I told him I did and showed him my free Navy ticket. He then said something like, Son, is this your rst major league game? I told him it was and I was really looking forward to seeing the game. I told him I was from Tallahassee, Florida, and said we only had a minor league team there. He then handed me a ticket and told me it was a very good seat in the mezzanine right down the line between home plate and rst base. I was speechless, and was only able to thank him. He just smiled at me and walked away. I never knew who he was, but Ill bet you one thing, theres a place for that man in heaven. What a person, and that man was all Yankee. Since those days, Ive had the good fortune to travel the world over and work with men and women from north, south, east, and west, and have learned there are wonderful people everywhere. By the way, the Dodgers beat the Braves that day and I got to see the Dodgers Frank Howard smack one way out over the center eld fence! Artwork on display from May 2014 until October 2014.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 11 Everyone in Tallahassee seemed to be looking for solutions this week. After Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis threw out two of the states congressional districts, lawyers and politicos were left trying to nd out what the ruling meant and how to repair the damage. Meanwhile, the states prison system was looking for a x to a spate of bad stories about suspicious deaths of prisoners in the agencys custody. By the end of the week, the head of one prison had been suspended and the secretary of the Department of Corrections was promising to do more if necessary. Even the question of how to grow marijuana was getting stuck in the regulatory thicket, as the Department of Health and the nascent pot industry argued over the regulations that will guide the farming of a version of the plant meant to help with some health problems. BATTLE LINES REDRAWN? Candidates are already out on the trail and making their cases for re-election. But at least some of them might face a new group of voters --if not this November, then in two years. In a highly anticipated ruling, or at least a ruling closely watched in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., a Leon County judge struck down a map of the states congressional districts drawn by the Legislature in 2012. The decision marked the rst time a judge had considered whether the states congressional map was valid under the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts constitutional amendments, approved by voters in 2010. The answer, according to Lewis, was that a district held by Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown and one represented by Republican Congressman Daniel Webster fell short. According to Lewis, lawmakers and the staff members charged with the oncea-decade redistricting process tried to shield the map drawers from political in uence, even as Republican political consultants tried to nd a way to manipulate the process. That being said, the circumstantial evidence introduced at trial convinces me that the political operatives managed to find other avenues, other ways to in ltrate and in uence the Legislature, to obtain the necessary cooperation and collaboration to ensure that their plan was realized, at least in part, Lewis wrote. They managed to taint the redistricting process and the resulting map with improper partisan intent. There is just too much circumstantial evidence of it, too many coincidences, for me to conclude otherwise. Those most directly affected by the ruling were grappling with the fallout. Twice, Brown lashed out at Lewis, saying that her district needed to retain its largely African-American population base. Overturning the current District 5 map ignores the essential redistricting principle of maintaining communities of interest or minority access districts, she said. Certainly, minority communities do not live in compact, cookie-cutter like neighborhoods, and excessive adherence to district compactness, while ignoring the maintenance of minority access districts, fragments minority communities across the state. While he declared unconstitutional the map that was approved by the Legislature, Lewis did not speci cally say what would need to be done to x it. He could redraw the lines himself or order lawmakers to do it. Brown is considered relatively safe no matter what happens to the lines. But Webster and GOP Congressman John Mica could see Democratic-leaning voters shifted into their Central Florida districts giving Democrats some of the gains they wanted when they pushed the Fair Districts amendments four years ago. Its not like a fouror veseat change in the process, said Steve Schale, a Democratic political strategist. But you take two seats that were out of play, and you put them in play, thats going to have an impact. CORRECTIONS UNDER FIRE While Lewis was ruling on the future of the states political system, the past of one state agency could soon be headed to the court system as well. And the issues there were matters of life and death. The Florida Department of Corrections continued to take re this week over the deaths of prisoners, with the agencys secretary placing Dade Correctional Institution Warden Jerry Cummings on administrative leave. Secretary Mike Crews took the action during a visit to the Florida City prison, where an inmate died in 2012 under questionable circumstances. Miami-Dade police are already investigating the death of Darren Rainey, an inmate who died after guards allegedly forced him to shower in scalding hot water as punishment. I am troubled by the allegations surrounding Dade Correctional Institution and feel a change at the facility is necessary for restoring accountability across the department, Crews said in a release Thursday. This morning I also met with correctional of cers in the facility and underscored that the integrity of the department will not be compromised by any bad actions. DOC has been under re for weeks following media reports, largely those in The Miami Herald, about the suspicious deaths of inmates. Crews trip came after four investigators for the department led a lawsuit against the agency, saying they were essentially punished for calling attention to an inaccurate report about an inmates death. The suit, led this week, also names as defendants Gov. Rick Scotts Office of the Inspector General, Chief Inspector General Melinda Miguel and an assistant, and two high-ranking of cials at the Department of Corrections. It alleges that the four employees bringing the claim Aubrey Land, David Clark, Doug Glisson and John Ulm have faced retaliation for raising questions about the investigation into the death of an inmate. The punishment includes two of the four facing their own internal-affairs investigation. BUZZ KILLS Of all the groups that seem least likely to get upset over the actions of state government, those involved with the marijuana industry would seem to top the list. After all, the leafy green substance is supposed to help people relax, right? Instead, regulators heard an earful early this week from growers, lawyers and lobbyists seeking to rake in some green from Floridas new pot industry during a standingroom-only, rule-making workshop. At the top of the complaint list: concerns about a proposed lottery system to award ve organizations the chance to grow, manufacture and dispense a type of medical marijuana approved by Floridas Republican-dominated Legislature this spring. But complaints touched on other issues such as the number of dispensaries. Department of Health General Counsel Jennifer Tschetter said the agencys preliminary plan was to limit the number of dispensaries to ve as outlined in the law and to bar dispensaries from shipping or transporting the nal product. The state needs way more than ve dispensaries, and the nursery locations are very inconvenient for the patient populations, said Kerry Herndon, owner of Apopkabased Kerrys Nursery. Floridas new law makes legal in Florida certain strains of marijuana that are low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD. The law specifically limits the composition of the seeds, plants and nal product, usually an oil or paste, to no more than .8 percent THC and at least 10 percent CBD. The combination is purported to eliminate or dramatically reduce life-threatening seizures in children with severe epilepsy. The law also allows patients who suffer from severe muscle spasms or cancer to be put on a compassionate use registry for the low-THC product as long as their doctors approve. DOH planned to use a lottery to select single dispensing organizations in regions where more than one application was submitted, but lobbyists and growers complained that the state would be putting epileptic children and other patients at risk by failing to ensure that the most capable organizations would be responsible for crafting the substance they ingest. STORY OF THE WEEK: Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis strikes down the states new congressional districts as unconstitutional, potentially throwing the states political future into turmoil. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Very quietly. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, when asked how marijuana plants will get into the state to help establish a type of medical marijuana approved by the Legislature this spring.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Looking for answers HOME COUNTRYWindy gets involved in a July Fourth political debate -Janet By SLIM RANDLESWindy Wilson was on the prowl, this beautiful Independence Day morning, searching the neighborhood for something to do for others. He decided to let his weekly day helping others come on the Fourth this week, because he was feeling very American. Lets see, he thought, I can circumlocute over to Mrs. Hennesseys and see if her ower garden needs weeding. Shes got very close veins and the sugar diabeets, and getting around aint easy. He headed in that direction when he came across two friends of his arguing over politics. They were standing there in the shade of an elm tree and trying seriously to tear down each others theory on how the world, the United States, the state government and the local school board should be operated. Windy stopped and listened to them. Each would look at Windy as each point was made only to see the usually garrulous Alphonse Wilson smile benignly and nod in response. Pretty soon, the two combatants gured out that Windy was nodding to statements on totally opposite sides of the argument. They stopped and looked at him. How do you stand on this, Windy? one asked. I stand as an American citizen, he said, on this recompensation of our Independence Day, knowing that our foundling fathers would want it this way. Yes, since this is a special day for all Americans, I am recumbent in the factotum that it is your very basic right to be wrong. Which one? Which one of us is wrong, Windy? He grinned. Well you both are. Brought to you by The Home Country Hour podcast. Check it out at www.slimrandles. com.

Page 10B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 17, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsA visit to Rudesheim is your next stop on a relaxing river cruise. It lies at the foot of the Niederwald Mountains on the Rhines east bank, near the Lorelei Mountains. The town belongs to the Frankfurt Rhine Main Region and is one of Germanys biggest tourist attractions. Only Cologne Cathedral draws more tourists. With an average of 300,000 visitors a year, try exploring this gem in the spring or fall when the charming hamlet is less crowded. Rudesheim is a picture perfect community, with tiny winding streets and ample shopping opportunities. Winter brings the Rudesheim Christmas market. Home of Europes biggest nativity scene, ogle life sized gures on display on the market square. If you need a little Christmas off-season, browse through Katie Wolfhards Christmas shop. Soar in a chairlift up to the Niederwald statue. Built in 1883, the statue commemorates Germanys uni cation 12 years prior. Your reward is a spectacular birds eye view of the town and the distant Rhine with its slopping hills awash in vineyards. You have to hear, and see Siegfrieds Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum. Tour one of the worlds biggest collections of self-playing musical instruments. Enormous calliopes look like they came straight from the circus. Their figurines pivot, instruments magically play themselves, and carousels spin, still delivering spellbinding magic. In the over 350 exhibits, melodies tinkle from the ivories, drums boom, and violins spin to provide a melodic glimpse into the musical past. Guided tours are available in 9 languages and the museum tour with music takes approx. 45 minutes. Fresh and hot, try a baumstreizel, the local dessert. Resembling a paint roller, this hollow tube shaped pastry is made from traditional yeast dough. Rolled around a wooden roller, the dough is rotated slowly over a heat source, and brushed with butter as it cooks. It is nished with another brush of butter and rolled in nuts, cinnamon, chocolate or sprinkles. Yum. Sample the local drink Rudesheim Coffee. Served in a specially made coffee set this concoction is a mix of locally Brandy, coffee whipped cream and chocolate shavings. It will de nitely warm you up on a cold winters day. Known for quality Riesling grapes, this area accounts for 2.5% of Germanys wine production, with over 80,000 acres in cultivation. Another locally produced item, Asbach Uralt Brandy, is featured prominently in Rudesheim coffee. As you depart from Rusedheim and slowly cruise toward Cologne castles dot the landscape. This area is a UNESCO world heritage site, and part of the Rheine Middle region. On towering hills along the river fteen castles perch along the bluffs. This section of the river is perfect for river cruising, marvel at the castles and scenery of the picturesque Rheingau landscape, and the romantic Rhine River. Now after a day spent exploring Rudesheims charm this is a great time to sit on your ship, while you sip locally grown wine, or brandy.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.
