It will take it from a 600,000 gallon a day plant, to 1.2 million gallon a day plant, Edwards said. Currently our plant is almost at capacity. Right now if we had a large subdivision or user of water, we would not be able to permit them to come into the county. This sets it up so we have plenty of plant capacity, and we can start tying customers on. This sets the growth for the future of Wakulla County. We were reaching a point where we would have to shut down growth in areas where sewer is, because our plant is almost at capacity. You cant go over the ows youre permitted for. The breakdown of project funding is $6,495,000 for a rural development loan, and $3,066,900 for a rural development grant. There is a 3.2 percent interest rate on the 40-year USDA loan of $6.5 million. But the county does not anticipate stringing it out for 40 years. Edwards said the loan will be more quickly eliminated through access fees.

Candidate forum to be held Aug. 14$9.6 M project funding from USDA secured for capactiy expansion Small horse club is big family funBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netWhen you think youre lost heading down Lawhon Mill Road, keep driving. That means youve almost arrived at the Wakulla Equestrian Facility. Two years ago the facility moved to Medart from the middle of Crawfordville, and the Wakulla County Horseman Association Inc. has worked hard to make the new arena a special place where families can gather to socialize, play and of course watch exciting exhibitions and speed shows. For the rst time, the Wakulla County Horseman Association will host a four-division summer jackpot on Saturday, Aug. 30 at the facility located at 1757 Lawhon Mill Road, in Medart off Sopchoppy Highway. The exhibition begins at 5 p.m., with the show at 7 p.m. The event is open and free to spectators. Otherwise, the arena fee is $5, entry fee is $25, and the exhibitions are $3. The jackpot is a 70/30 payout with $500 added. As the WCHAs leaders gear up for the fall season, they want folks to know the mission of the facility is to promote wholesome family entertainment through horse shows, trail rides and other horse-related activities. They say the sponsored activities strive to further good horsemanship, sportsmanship, honesty and integrity. Jim Porter, president of the association, said its taken about two years to get the arena in good shape, with a new announcers stand, sand-clay dirt, and sprinkler systems to wet the ground, which is a unique feature to arenas in the area. There are also nice, new restrooms, a concession stand, disabled parking spots and a playground for youngsters. A lot of people dont know the facility moved, Porter said, since the arena was relocated to county property, from a location by the Extension Of ce. The club currently has about 25 members, and they are hoping more folks will sign-on to saddle up with them. This is a little family horse club, and thats what its designed around, Porter said. My grandkids ride, his grandkids ride. My granddaughter is 4, and my grandson is 2, and were going to start leading him around this year. If someone wants to learn about horses, they can come out here. Theyll be in a horse environment, and be around horsefriendly people. Even if they never had any experience, they can come out and check it out, and maybe want to get a horse and start coming. Even if someone has never ridden before, we start with a lead line. Theres no age on that. Its an entry level, family type of horse club. The club hosts three speed events pole bending, cloverleaf barrels and arena race. There are a lot of different disciplines in horse riding, and ours is the speed events, Porter said. The jackpot show is for more seasoned riders, and will be an event that should thrill spectators, Porter said. That will be a bunch of ladies who will come out here and run their horses some of them have three or four or ve horses they will be serious about winning that money, he said. Porter said when children see the professional riders, if often inspires them to stay with the sport and take it to the next level with the National Barrel Horse Association. Club Show Secretary Phyllis Dunaway said her daughter, Samantha has only been riding for three years. Turn to Page 10A By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netIt costs nothing but some extra time to be a hero in Wakulla County. An effort to attract, recruit and maintain local volunteer re ghters is underway, and Fire Chief Mike Morgan wants local men and women to consider what contribution they might have to offer Wakulla County citizens. A prospective members meeting will be 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21 at the Crawfordville Fire Station at 88 Cedar Ave. Call 850-745-8698, or email vfd@mywakulla. com for more information. We are committed to paying for everything, Morgan said. The physical, drug test, background check, drivers license check thats where is gets expensive. Were putting the money on the table. A volunteer is free labor, but its not free to the budget. Volunteers dont have to pay a dime to be volunteers. Morgan said taxpayers also foot the bill for the Fire ghter One online class, as well as $2,500 of protective equipment, $400 worth of radios, and a $100 rst responder bag. Potential volunteers are usually on board, until nding out about the 260-hours it takes to become certi ed. If you have a family life, you have to carve the 260 hours out of there, Morgan said. If youre young and single, you can t it in. But you still have to drop something for the next few months to get that training in. You would really have to have that goal. Morgan himself got started as a volunteer re ghter in 1965, and it became a career in 1968. Before moving to Wakulla, Morgan served as chief of two different volunteer fire departments during his career. He retired in 2002, But my bill collectors decided I need to go back to work, he joked. Morgan also served in the volunteers after retirement, before he came back to lead the department full time.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comFrom the Front Page Morgan said national statistics for volunteer re ghters say volunteers are active for four years, and drop out for family reasons, job reasons, or relocation. But thats not the case in Wakulla County. Our volunteer force is Wakulla County people who have been here a long time, though not exclusively, he said. The guys who are members at Panacea have been there their whole lives. St. Marks is like that too people who have been there many years. So while 128 volunteers are listed on the membership rolls for the 12 departments, the number is not re ected in the responders present at an emergency call. Some people have been on the rolls for a dozen years, Morgan said. Were creating a membership roll though this process that is current and accurate. The chief said there is a formula for how many volunteers are needed to man a station, which is 18 people. We have not one station that meets that level, he said. That doesnt mean you cant operate with less than that. But that is the optimum; the ideal. We have stations that have one certi ed re ghter. Crawfordville has between 15 and 18. Its everything in between. We are able to protect Wakulla County for a re incident and more than just something burning a storm, an overturned vehicle with people in it. What concerns me is the simultaneous calls. We had one evening where we had three res back to back, so we were stretched thin. A truck from Ochlockonee Bay would be working a re call in Crawfordville, because the truck in Crawfordville is already working a call. Ive watched the guys get worn out, and then another call comes in. We dont have replacements or backups. Well call in the career guys when theyre off. We dont make appointments. Morgan said the campaign is not just focused on the younger population of Wakulla County. In fact, we have several stations where we have retired people who have the time to do it, Morgan said. They are beyond the desire to crawl into burning buildings, but we have plenty of work for them drive trucks, supply water tankers for the res, and everything else that goes along with it. Thats the biggest concern. Certi ed people have to meet physical requirements. The physical part of it has to be out in the eld, and we will put a career captain instructor with that person. That is the practical part of becoming a volunteer, Morgan said. He or she has to be trained, t, and be able to function. Another reason volunteer signups have been stagnant, is a societal problem. You go home, turn your TV, video games, computer or family time on, Morgan said. Something happens and youre needed. We as a society say, Were going to pay someone else do it. Let someone else handle that. Thats all ne and good, if theres enough tax money to do that. In the decades that Morgan has served in emergency response, this is the tightest budget he has ever worked with, he said. We have enough to provide service, a good quality service, Morgan said. I told the commission well manage whatever you allocate. But right now, what they give us, we spend. And we have a lot of capital.Volunteers needed to protect county from re, disasters PHOTO SPECIAL TO THE NEWSWakulla County Sheriffs Of ce, Wakulla Fire Rescue and Wakulla EMS responded to a mock bus rollover exercise at Wakulla High School Monday, Aug. 11.

Board hears WEI campus update, apartment woesBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County Board of Commissioners is still playing catch up after only one meeting in July. On Aug. 4, the board received an update about the construction of Wakulla Environmental Institutes new campus, heard controversy over a new apartment complex and much more. ENVIRONMENTAL INSTITUTE CAMPUS UPDATE Wakulla Environmental Institutes Executive Director Bob Ballard said he has good news and bad news about the new campus building, which will be located off US 319, just south of River of Life Church. After we got the $4.5 million for the building, we got another $1.5 million from the federal government, Ballard said. The bad news is, we got $1.5 million from the federal government. Its a double-edged sword. We love having the money, and now $6 million can be spent right here in Wakulla County. But they want to do it their way, so when we go to bid, we cant do it the way the states always done it, we have use the federal governments procedures. Ballard said they are on the verge of placing out a bid for a general contractor, but not until given the green light from the government, which is about a week away. It will take 45 days for a bidding process. After that, it has to go before the TCC board of trustees in probably mid-to-late October. Once approved by the trustees, construction can begin. I am frustrated its taken this long, Ballard said. But its bittersweet, because I love the fact we got an extra $1.5 million to spend on this project. If it werent for the $1.5 million, we would have already been under construction. I apologize for any delays. Ballard added that WEI received a national award for the building design which is reminiscent of a Florida Cracker style house or cabin, with a wraparound porch, breezy dogtrot, and employment of new technologies that create more energy than it uses. Were really excited, Ballard said. Its a great design. COMPLAINTS OVER NEW APARTMENT COMPLEX The meeting also featured second of two public hearings to discuss an application for a site plan that would put an 80unit apartment complex in the neighborhood at High Drive and Daniel Lane, which includes 10 buildings, an of ce and a swimming pool. The application says there will be a 50-foot buffer around the perimeter of the site. Serna said the site is listed in the Crawfordville Town Plan, and is consistent with the multi-family zoning in that area. Billy Gaby owns the property. Commissioner Randy Merritt recused himself from voting because he and Walt Dickson, the applicant, had discussed another land deal in the past for a property Merritt owns. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the item, but members of the homeowners association had a lot to say about that. Justin Rock, who lives near the site, asked the board to strongly consider the implications of the project. Having lived in Tallahassee for eight years, I can tell you (apartment complexes) have become a burden, Rock said. The traf c and amount of people that come out of apartments that cause a delay on my day is not something Im looking forward to. I hope that youll ask this gentleman to work with us, and propose a good solution to make something not so pleasant, a little more pleasant.

Previously he was the name of a Wakulla County Commissioner who made decisions that I sometimes agreed with and sometimes didnt. The letter, however, re ected thought, intelligence, clarity, and sincerity. These are the qualities we all should want in an elected county representative. He just earned himself another vote in November. James Grey CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: It is an honor and a privilege to submit this letter supporting Donna Savary for the Wakulla County School Board. I have known Mrs. Savary for several years. We rst met at Riversprings Middle School as teachers. She is a born leader who understands the needs of every child in every grade level. I have so much respect and admiration for her because she is great educator. Wanting to make a difference in Wakulla County Schools, Savary endured much frustration, but she never quit. She continued to pursue her goal to open her own school, Savary Academy, in 2009. Savary is extremely outspoken and bold. She seeks answers to every question before nalizing any decision. She does not mind speaking her mind in any setting for the quality education of every child. She wants every child to become a lifelong learner. Not only is she an educator, but she is also a businesswoman. Savary understands that every dollar must count as the leader of her own school. She knows how to work with taxpayers to allocate monies ef ciently to best educate our children, so every child can be successful. In addition, she is nothing short of a re ned analytical and critical scholar and a developer of grounded educational instructional orientations. Donna Savary is very diligent regarding the care of her family, and the affairs of any organization to which she is joined. In particular, she has shown herself to be a responsible educator. She is always willing to extend a helping hand during any activities and beyond the school doors. Her hope is that every child will understand that dedication and hard work will make them victorious in the end. I believe she has the energy and knowledge to become a great school board member for every child, and she will explain how every dollar counts for the Wakulla Taxpayers. On Aug. 26, please Go and vote for Donna Savary. She will bring a positive change to this district. Phyllis O. Wright CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: The primary election is just around the corner, and we encourage you to vote for Jerry Moore (Republican) for county commissioner. He has kept his campaign promises, has consistently advocated for the taxpayers, and has been good for Shell Point, Oyster Bay, and Live Oak Island. We have lived here since 1989 and have experienced other commissioners, who rarely took any action to assist the residents of these communities. Following Tropical Storm Debby, Commissioner Moore worked diligently to assist the residents of Walker Creek Drive whose street was all but washed away by adding a seawall to help protect it from the serious erosion of the past and laying an asphalt base to the road. He is solely responsible for making the new boat ramp possible a project he has worked on for several years. He has also been instrumental in providing artificial reefs, which encourage shing tourists to visit our County, and has a history of supporting our Volunteer Fire Department. Commissioner Moore has demonstrated time and again that he is a strong supporter of individual property rights, unlike those who advocate the taking of an additional 50 feet of privately owned property (without compensation) from the owners for the so-called wetlands buffers, which will result in an untold amount of our tax dollars being used to pay for lawsuits rather paying for the services Wakulla County citizens need. Please support Jerry Moore and encourage your friends and neighbors to do so. It is essential that he wins the Republican primary. Thanks for your consideration,Kathie and Alan LamarcheShell Point Editor, The News: Jo Ann Daniels would make an excellent School Board member. I have admired her professionalism in education for 30 years as a teacher, administrator, principal and volunteer. She is active in the Wakulla Coastal Optimist Club whose motto is Friend to Youth. She is on the board of the Wakulla Academic Boosters. Where a person spends their time strongly indicates their true interest. Jo Ann is interested in the welfare of students. She has years of hands-on experience in our school system and she knows what works. No candidate is better suited for the school board. Mike Carter Retired JudgeEditor, The News: The Wakulla Senior Citizens Council, Inc. and its Board of Directors appreciates the support shown over the years by community leaders and elected ofcials in our community. The Center, located at 33 Michael Drive in Crawfordville, is a 501(c)(3) non-pro t organization and is therefore regulated under the Internal Revenue Code regarding political activities. The Restriction of Political Campaign Intervention by Section 501(c)(3) TaxExempt Organizations: Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public of ce. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public of ce clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Certain activities or expenditures may not be prohibited depending on the facts and circumstances. For example, certain voter education activities (including presenting public forums and publishing voter education guides) conducted in a non-partisan manner do not constitute prohibited political campaign activity. In addition, other activities intended to encourage people to participate in the electoral process, such as voter registration and get-outthe-vote drives, would not be prohibited political campaign activity if conducted in a non-partisan manner. On the other hand, voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that (a) would favor one candidate over another; (b) oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.

Maurice Langston Executive Director Wakulla Senior Citizens Council Inc. Last weeks story Complaints about lack of diversity in the schools included a reference to educator Cathy Wiliams as someone who applied for administrative positions in the district and didnt get them. While others at the meeting talked about Williams situation, Williams talked about her quali cations at the meeting and not speci cally about her experience applying for positions in the district. Editor, The News: Since integration became the norm for county residents, the number of minority educators has been on a steady decline, and the glass ceiling limiting minorities from principal positions remains secured in its place. On Monday, Aug. 4, there was an open meeting held for all citizens to either voice their concern or to become informed about the continuing struggle for greater diversity in the ranks of school board employees. It is disappointing to note that not one member of the current school board or the current superintendent Bobby Pearce thought it important enough to attend. This sent a clear message to those in attendance that their concerns are not important to school ofcials. It is important to note that the three candidates opposing incumbent school board members in the August election were all in attendance. They showed constituents that they were willing to listen to concerns, and willing to develop and enact solutions. The point that was discussed most, and has continuously been made by the current and former superintendents of Wakulla County, is Pearces statement that he would hire minority teachers and administrators if they were quali ed for the positions. It is amazing that these types of statements have been accepted by the community over the years, especially since there is no truth in them. If we just look at the most recent hire of Richard Myhre as principal of Wakulla Middle School, there is no way the superintendent or the school board can justify him as the most quali ed candidate. There were at least three candidates with the requisite credentials to apply for the position, Education Leadership and/or Principal certi cation. A quick search of the state Department of Education website at the time indicated that Myhre had neither of these certi cations. When the nal decision was made, Myhre was hired for the position over qualified white candidates and a qualified African American candidate who has seven years of school administrator experience at middle school and high school, four years of experience at both the district and state level, and 13 years of classroom experience. To the superintendents credit, the more experienced African American candidate was offered a district position, but this too has been a district practice. When they recognize that there is a qualified African American candidate, offers are made to place them at the district ofce rather than be the leader of a school. Presently, there are at least four African American educators with the proper credentials living in Wakulla County, one of whom is Simeon Nelson. It makes one wonder why Pearce didnt just appoint Nelson to the Wakulla Middle School principal position. He is quali ed and has many more years of experience as an educator and as an administrator than Myhre. The answer is that identifying the most qualified candidates for administrative positions is not really a priority of this superintendent and school board. Their priority appears to be all about sustaining the status quo. This is why they constantly try to placate the African American community by saying they are trying, but cant find quali ed candidates. Our district of cials made a decision a few years ago that would ensure that they could overlook quali ed applicants for administrative positions to pick candidates that t their liking. The district moved to hiring Deans instead of assistant principals because of the Education Leadership certification requirement. This allowed them to hire people without the certification into leadership positions while giving them time to obtain the certi cation. It has resulted in the ultimate way to discriminate, to elevate those without proper certification above those who worked hard to get the certi cation. Hard work and dedication usually equate to opportunities for promotion, but not in Wakulla County. It is practices like this that are being called into question. This is why many in the community are challenging the districts position on diversity and challenging them to hire minority educators and administrators. County residents may not know that after Myhres appointment, there were two dean/assistant principal positions open, one at Crawfordville Elementary School and the other at Wakulla Middle School. There were at least two African American applicants with the required certification and experience. Neither was selected. Pearce and school board members, the people of Wakulla County deserve answers. The days of using strong-arm tactics to shut people down are gone. The days of meeting privately, promising something, and delivering nothing are gone. The people of Wakulla are asking you to step into the sunshine and have an honest conversation about changing the way of work in Wakulla County. Patrick W. Wright CrawfordvilleClari cation
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 Page 5AEndorsing Becky Cook for school board Join us at candidate forum Aug. 14By RACHEL SUTZ PIENTADuring the 2012 election season, the Democratic Executive Committee and the Republican Executive Committee collaborated on a series of candidate forums. Some people heralded the effort as historic. Other citizens groused that the collaboration blurred party lines and seemed like some sort of political collusion between county power brokers. For the most part, the forums were welcomed by the community and were well attended by local citizens. For 2014, local Republican and Democrat leadership considered how best to build on the foundation of the successful collaboration forged in 2012. The decision was made to involve the local paper of record, The Wakulla News. I hope that the Wakulla High School faculty and parents will stop by the library to catch some of the forum after the Open House at the high school concludes. The timing of the August primary, as often happens with any community event, made choosing a suitable date a challenge. Traditionally, August primaries in non-presidential election years have not drawn large voter turnouts. I recently checked-in with Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells to see how the absentee or vote by mail ballot returns were progressing. Supervisor Wells told me fewer than 20 had been turned in by midday Aug. 1. In contrast, Leon Countys Supervisor of Elections had reported over 1,200 ballots had been cast by mail. To be fair, we have a smaller population. However, our percentage of voter turnout is comparable to Leon Countys during presidential years. The challenge for us has been elevating voter interest in the non-presidential primary years. Early voting for the primary begins Aug. 16 with election day on Aug. 26. Locally, there is a Republican primary for a county commission seat. There are three School Board seats that will be decided in August. There are also several statewide of ces that have primary opponents on the ballot in August. It is also important to remember that any registered voter can vote on the non-partisan School Board races regardless of party af liation. As Wakulla citizens were reminded in a special ballot referendum during the summer of 2013, the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners is not the only entity that determines how your tax dollars are spent. Our public schools represent an important local investment and our elected leaders on the School Board play a role in determining how those resources are allocated. Above and beyond the aspects of local governance that impact our wallets, I encourage all members of the Wakulla community to take an interest in the real future of our county our young people. Decisions made by our local school leaders impact the lives of thousands of students in the Wakulla County School system. The democratic electoral process allows us as voters to have a hand in selecting these important decision makers and we should all utilize our opportunity to cast a ballot for our students on Aug. 26. For a chance to learn more about who is competing for your vote, join us Aug. 14 at the Wakulla County Public Library. The forum is free and open to the public. Rachel Sutz Pienta is chair of the Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee.readers speak out More OpinionsREADERS WRITE:Editor, The News:I want to praise and thank Mike and Christie Mungeon Tree Service. I have used their tree service since 2004. They are very kind, dependable and professional with their service. Mike even came to my house to climb very far up a tree to rescue my cat. If you need tree work, please consider using their company by calling 421-8104. Kathryn Wilson CrawfordvilleProud to be a CAVE person Mungeon Tree Service does good work Russell answers concerns about candidacy Brock invites voters to contact herEditor, The News: Now that the dust has settled, at least temporarily, on TCCs bid for a long term lease at Wakulla Springs State Park, we need to understand what raised the hackles of the opposition. While it was not the primary issue of concern, the campground became the divisive issue that got much attention from both sides of the debate. There are several reasons why the campground became such a hot topic of contention. Most people assumed this issue had been settled in 2011 when a campground proposal at this same location was pulled by the Department of Environmental Protection due to strong public and political opposition. Then as now, the location on land purchased to protect groundwater flowing to Wakulla Springs would be a violation of public trust. Also, a campground is not needed for training future resource managers. However there are two nearby campgrounds with intern possibilities if TCCs Wakulla Environmental Institute thinks it is important. Lastly, state park conservation lands should not be transferred to other agencies for the purpose of making money. What TCC needs to understand is that the primary concern of the citizens opposed to their proposal was the precedent-setting nature of a long term lease of park property to any entity for non-park purposes in this case for higher education. This is not a Wakulla County issue, it is a statewide issue. It makes no sense for the Florida Park Service, with resource management experience dating to 1935, to turn over conservation land to any entity with little or no experience in this eld. The Park would be happy to enter into cooperative agreements with WEI for the purpose of training resource managers. TCCs WEI said, in withdrawing their request, they were not ruling out future requests for a lease at the park. All land acquisitions since the original purchase have been to protect the springs watershed. This includes all of the parcels on either side of U.S. Highway 319 containing River Sink, Emerald Sink and many other well known karst features. No matter which park lands a future proposal might target, it will be met with the same impassioned opposition. The citizens who opposed this lease are everyday people from all walks of life who have no personal gains at stake. They are not, as Commissioner Jerry Moore and others have eluded, Citizens Against Virtually Everything. They are loyal volunteers for a great variety of worthy causes. They are people who truly Care About Virtually Everything that will have an impact, whether positive or negative, on the Wakulla County we all love and will leave for future generations. So, I guess Im proud to be a cave person. Finally, Jim Stevenson, who took some heat during this WEI asco, is one of the most dedicated, knowledgeable and principled ambassadors for Floridas springs, many of which are severely degraded due to inadequate protection ordinances. Jim was appointed as DEPs rst chairman of the Governors springs initiative task force. He created and chaired the Ichetucknee Springs Working Group and the Wakulla Springs Working Group and has stayed involved long after retirement. Jim was the rst recipient of DEPs Resource Manager of the Year Award. Because of his continued untiring work in resource management, this award is now of cially the Jim Stevenson Resource Manager of the Year Award. By the way, Wakulla Springs is the only state park that can boast having two Jim Stevenson Resource Manager of the Year Award winners. Those being Sandy Cook, previous park manager of 16 years, and Scott Savery, current and long serving park biologist. TCC has a great reputation and enjoys enthusiastic local support for its WEO. Hopefully, they will avoid further tarnishing of their image and focus on unmet needs and potential in Wakulla County such as the development of a strong eco-tourism industry talk about jobs! I cant think of any place in Florida with a greater potential for eco-tourism than the Big Bend. I am sure Wakulla Springs State Park would be a proud partner in such an endeavor. George Apthorp CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: I am Verna Brock, and I am a candidate for the District 1 School Board seat. If you want to know more about me and what I can offer to the education of our children and grandchildren, please call me at 421-3730; or check my Facebook page at Verna Brock for Wakulla County School Board. As the primary election is fast approaching, I wanted to take a moment to remind readers that ALL of the school board seat elections will be determined on Tuesday, Aug. 26. I know many have received their vote-by-mail ballots; early voting begins Saturday, Aug. 16 through Saturday, Aug. 23, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Supervisor of Elections of ce, located at 3115 Crawfordville Hwy. I hope many of you will join us for a Souls to the Polls event on Sunday, Aug. 17. Come out after church and join your fellow citizens as they walk from Azalea Park to vote, and exercise your right to be heard! Please remember me, Verna Brock, whenever you do vote. I am asking for your vote if you value accessibility in your School Board representative, and believe honor and integrity are more than just words when it comes to your childs education. Thank you for your consideration, Verna L.S. Brock Candidate for Wakulla County School Board, District 1Editor, The News: Of the many notable assets our school district possesses here in Wakulla County, our school board members stand out as being at the top of that list. Most distinctly, Becky Cook, who is an incumbent currently seeking re-election, consistently demonstrates herself to be both a consummate professional and very personable, each and every year she serves as Wakulla County School Board member. Cook genuinely cares about the students, teachers, staff and administrators in our school district. She not only regularly visits our schools, she volunteers in them as well! In times of need she has stepped-in and volunteered to teach, to aid teachers in their classrooms, and to organize events for our children that may have not been realized had it not been for Cook. The success of many of our special concerts and holiday musicals have had her guiding hand behind them. She attends and supports school functions, at all our schools, regularly throughout the school year. During many a summer break, Cook volunteers her time to tend to school grounds, build and paint classrooms, and help prepare our schools for our students return in the fall. For teachers, staff and administrators, Cook helps organize, prepare and SERVE meals to welcome us back to school, and also to celebrate faculty and staff achievements during the year, and she does this every single year! She passes along to teachers current educational strategies that she has discovered, so we have every available opportunity to enhance childrens learning experience in our classrooms. When you need an extra pair of eyes to help you seek a better way of teaching something, Cook is on the job! I am very proud to be a tenured teacher in the best school district in the state of Florida, and Cooks dedication to educating our children, her dependability, and sincerity play a HUGE part in our success each year. I hope you will join me Aug. 26 in re-electing Becky Cook to our Wakulla County School Board. Janet Weber Wakulla High School educator Editor, The News: I was recently advised there are some concerns floating around about my candidacy, in turn, Id like to address them publicly so there are no misunderstandings: Concern: Chris was a member of the Wakulla County Charter Review Commission (CRC) and they tried to take away our voting rights: Fact: Several proposals were brought forth to the CRC by citizens HOWEVER, not a single proposal brought forth that could restrict a voters rights, was approved by the Charter Review Commission. I am on record speaking out against and voting against issues that could have limited a voters rights. The three proposals going forth to the voters in the General Election are: the establishment of a debt policy for the BOCC; the requirement that the BOCC adhere to their current fund balance policy; and a residency requirement for elected BOCC members. Two scal accountability proposals and one elected of cial accountability proposal were approved by the CRC. In the end, the voters of Wakulla County decide what amendments are ultimately approved, not the CRC. Nothing in these proposals limits a voters rights. Each meeting was recorded and CDs of these meetings can be purchased for $1 each at the BOCC of ce. Anyone who has questions pertaining to these meetings should purchase a CD and listen to the meetings themselves. Concern: Chris is against our teachers because he has brought up the fact that the Wakulla County School District has fallen to a B District two years in a row, and half of our Elementary Schools are now C rated. Fact: These ratings are from the Florida Department of Educations School Grade Report (schoolgrades. doe.org ) not something I have created. A key component of my campaign is promoting the concept of nding ways to push back against the governmental entities that have mandated the overreaching standardized tests that have helped result in our school grades going down. These results do not adequately re ect the excellent educators we have in Wakulla County and tying their pay to these tests is not fair to them in my opinion. Its very similar to being held accountable for an unfunded mandate imposed by the Federal Government: new requirements, but a lack of funds to ensure success. Last year, 22 percent of the other school districts in Florida found a way to improve their School District Rating, I believe we can too. I believe we need to incorporate more Common Sense and less Common Core, working from the bottom up, with teacher input, to achieve success. Concern: Chris will slash funding for the schools because he has spoken out against the 2013 School Board Special Election that resulted in a .5 mil property tax increase. Fact: I have openly stated I support using tax dollars for our schools. My concern is the School Board voted in February 2013 to spend nearly $37,000 School Tax Dollars to hold a Special Election to raise our taxes. This vote happened a mere three months after a General Election, where this referendum item could have been voted on for free. Since the School Board stated that ve years of declining revenue was the cause for needing to raise our taxes, they surely knew of this issue 90 days before. In turn, they could have saved that $37,000 by having the referendum on the General Election in November 2012 instead of paying for a Special Election. How many teachers could have benefited from having that money to buy school supplies for their rooms or how many laptops could have been purchased for our schools with that $37,000? The issue isnt using tax dollars, the issue is using tax dollars ef ciently. Concern: Chris does not go to School Board Meetings routinely. Fact: This is true. Whats the use: the votes are consistently 5-0, overall citizen engagement is basically nonexistent, and citizens do not have input on agenda items as the meeting progresses. Maybe that will change and more citizens will attend. Remember, I have kids in school, in turn, I want the system to be the best it can be. Please email or call me (email@example.com 879-1091) with any concerns you may have. Thank you, Chris Russell Candidate for Wakulla County School Board, District 3Candidate forum will be held at the Wakulla Public Library on Thursday, Aug. 14. Republican county commission candidates will speak at 7 p.m. Forum for school board candidates will begin at 7:30 p.m.

SNYDERThis week is a hallmark in the lives of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me. Fortythree years ago this week, we began a journey that has just become better with each year. Getting married was not something I had put together. Very few men put together their wedding plans. After all, that is why we get married. It came to me rather suddenly. I was at Bible college and one morning one of the guys in the dorm said to me, Congratulations. I just heard the good news. I smiled and nodded my head thinking about my plans for the day. I had no idea what he was talking about and at the time I did not have the time to ask him what he was talking about. Everybody I met that morning was congratulating me and telling me how happy they were for me. Soon I was beginning to wonder what in the world was going on. I did not have any test in any my classes yesterday so it could not be anything like that. I do not play the lottery so I could not have won the lottery. I could not think of anything I did yesterday that would cause all of this congratulatory remarks in my direction. Finally, when I had about as much as I could take, I asked somebody, What is everybody congratulating me for? The person that I queried looked at me, broke out in laughter and said, Man, you got to be kidding! Then he turned around, walking away laughing every step of the way. I went to my class, found my seat and got situated then one of the young ladies passed by, patted me on the shoulder and said, I am so happy for you and I think it is a wonderful thing. And I know you are going to be happy for the rest of your life. Well, I had had it. I looked at her and very rmly said, What are you so happy about? Your wedding, she said laughing, youre getting married. Oh, I said, nodding my head. Thank you very much. Then what she said dawned on me. I looked at her and said, Im getting what? Silly boy, she said, laughing hysterically, its all over campus so it must be true. I then had to think about this situation I was in. Everybody on the campus knew I was getting married, except me. Was I still sleeping? Was this just a dream I am having? I began to think about the events the preceding evening, and remembered a little conversation I had with the girl I was now supposed to be getting married to. In the course of our conversation, as I remembered it at the time, she said something to the effect, Wouldnt it be great to get married. As I recalled the conversation, I nodded my head and said something to the effect, Yea, I guess it would be. That was the end of the conversation as far as I was concerned, but the beginning of an ongoing conversation as far as someone else was concerned. Why is it that the groom-to-be is always the last one to know? Then I asked one of the girls in the hallway, When am I getting married? At the time, I did not have the foggiest idea. She turned away laughing and muttering to herself something to the effect that I had a really good sense of humor. Believe me, I was not laughing. As it turned out, me and the young lady I was to be married to, were engaged to be married and, I do not want to pry into this point very much, the wedding dress already purchased. As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Looking back over life, most of the good things that have happened to me were never of my doing. Im convinced that is the way God works. If you are doing what you want to do, you are probably not doing what God wants you to do. After all these years, I can still remember that wonderful day when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were united in holy matrimony. Our wedding was rather simple and the focus point of the wedding was the wedding vows. When I said, I do it clinched the deal and I was married and I have been doing it ever since. I have said many words in my life, and written thousands and thousands of words, but the most important words that have changed my life were those words, I do. The Bible has a lot to say about marriage and husbands and wives. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it (Ephesians 5:24-25). There are some empty words that we use every day but every once in a while we say a word or two that lls our life with joy unspeakable and full of glory.The Rev. James L.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 Page 7AJames Jim Hay Page died August 4, 2014 in Concord, N.C. Page was born April 17, 1924, to the former Frances Brokenborough Hay and Randolph Gilham Page, one of the first U.S. Mail pilots. Sadly, when Page was only 5, his father passed away. As was common at the time, Page, his mother, and two brothers all went to live with his paternal uncle who was in the U.S. Signal Corps (a division of the Army). They were stationed various places in the world, but Page always fondly recalled living the barefoot life in Hawaii when he was in elementary school. There he also honed a lifelong passion for swimming. A second blow was the death of his younger brother when the boy was only 12. Eventually his mother remarried and they moved to Beckley, W.Va., where Page swam competitively and played football. In the 1980s he was inducted into Beckleys Woodrow Wilson High School Hall of Fame. As World War II erupted, Page insisted on joining the U.S. Marines at 18 and served in the Paci c Theater, including the landing on Iwo Jima. Returning home, Page married the former Mary Lucile (Mary Lu) Graham, and they headed to Morgantown with the GI Bill to get his degree in mining engineering. After graduation, the Pages returned to the Beckley area where he began working with the New River Company in Mount Hope. In his usual no-nonsense style, he chose to begin on the hoot owl (midnight) shift digging coal and working his way through the ranks so he would know the business thoroughly. Eventually he became Manager of Mines and later was Vice President and General Manager of Beckley Coal Mining Co. Mary Lu was a full-time homemaker to their four daughters. There were a few constants in Pages life, including his love for his family and his belief in hard work. He also was devoted to his church, serving variously as both deacon and elder in the Mount Hope and Beckley Presbyterian churches. At the time of his death he was a member of Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, N.C. Like his father, Page was passionate as well about ying. He earned his Private Pilots License and owned a small plane for many years. He delighted in spending Sunday afternoons (the one day he allowed himself to take off work) at a small private Fayetteville, W.Va., airport (he jokingly called it Fayetteville International), talking ying and coal, and soaring around the New River Gorge. After retirement, he put his energy to work volunteering at the Bradley/Prosperity Fire Department and swimming at the Beckley YMCA in the Masters program, where he placed in the top ten in three events at the Nationals and was invited to the World Games. He also was the tireless caregiver for many years to wife Mary Lu as her health declined and she passed away. In the final act of his life, Page moved to Concord, N.C., to be near his dear friend Jo Moore. He spent his last 12 years reveling in her care and devotion. In fact, despite having made plans to eventually live near one of the girls in senior living, he refused till the end, saying he didnt belong with those old people. He is survived by older brother William (Bill) Page of Marietta, Ohio, his special friend Jo Moore and her family (David Moore; Susan, Warren, and Nick Baine), and his four daughters: Ellen Shelton (Rayford) of Fort Worth, Texas; Lucile Graham (Tom) of Sopchoppy; Jane Watson (Gene) of Richmond, Va.; and Sarah Pritzlaff of Baltimore. Grandchildren include Paul Matthew Garrison (Kim) of Fort Worth, Texas; Lauren Sweatt (Bronson) of Crawfordville; Will Webster of Pensacola; Graham Watson (Kat) of Nashville, Tenn.; Page Pleasants (Craig) of Earlysville, Va.; Parks Watson of Richmond, Va.; Rachel Pritzlaff of New York City, and David Pritzlaff of Baltimore. He also leaves behind greatgrandchildren Isabelle Miller, Bronson and Page Sweatt in Crawfordville; Grant Garrison in Fort Worth, Texas; and Mason and Jacqueline Slaughter in San Antonio, Texas. A memorial service will be held at a later date in Beckley, W.Va. In lieu of owers, the family requests donations to the church, fire department, or YMCA of your choice. James Funeral Home of Huntersville, N.C., is serving the Page family and online condolences can be made to jamesfuneralhomelkn.com.Obituaries By TRACY RENEE LEEI was watching a program on television with my husband this past weekend about addiction. In this movie, the star said, If, is hard to live with. I see clients weekly who live with the word if. If only we had not been drinking, If only I had not let my child go to that party, If only I had insisted he go to the doctor, etc. There is a mountain of ifs at the passing of a loved one. If you allow yourself to becoming entangled in ifs, you will eventually be strangled by them. My husband always says, Dont worry about the things you cannot change. I believe the military taught him to live by that strategy. He analyzes facts and creates successful tactics to chart a course for a positive outcome. I have watched him do this countless times during the course of our marriage; it is an amazing ability. When I am in situations I nd alarming, he merely suggests a change of focus and direction, and suddenly those alarming situations improve. Wouldnt it be wonderful, if simply changing your focus or direction would help you recover from grief more quickly and more ef ciently? It is a great strategy and it has worked before. Grief is so devastating and is experienced due to our loss of the person to whom we direct and focus our love and affection. Love and affection are very powerful and desirable emotions that we bestow upon others. The reward for these bestowals is the return and validation of these emotions upon ourselves. In other words, the more love and affection we bestow, the more love and affection we receive. When we have lost the primary focus of these emotions, we feel lonely, devastated and possibly afraid. I am not suggesting that you forget about your loved one. Doing so is not possible nor is it desirable. Neither do I suggest that you make major changes within the rst year of loss. I do suggest that you focus on changing little things. Changing little things is easy, and doing so, will change your outcome for a brighter future. My suggestions are these: 1. Evaluate your situation. Are there things that you can change, things that you can work on changing or things that you can eliminate that are causing you undue stress and unhappiness? 2. Realize that stress exacerbates pain. If you can identify a few slight modifications to your situation that will lighten your stress, act upon them. 3. Understand you are the survivor and begin acting like it immediately. Survivors act, they do not react. You must take control of your life and chart your course. In so doing, you can control, and potentially deter some of the damages you might otherwise suffer. 4. Remember, the more we love, the more we are loved. You have lost your loved one, and you are realizing that all of the time and love you shared with him or her needs somewhere to go. Share your time and love with others, your friends, your children, your grandchildren, your pets, your associates and even new friends. 5. Get busy. Volunteer at your favorite charity or church.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunitySpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Of ce Sgt. Ray Johnson won rst place in the category of Outstanding Dedication to DUI Enforcement in the Small/Rural Agency category at the 2014 MADD Florida State Law Enforcement Recognition awards program. Sgt. Johnson was honored Aug.1 by the Florida Mothers Against Drunk Driving organization at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale. Sgt. Johnson has been dedicated to protecting Wakulla County young people for many years. His dedication to the protection of youth made him an obvious choice to be a School Resource Ofcer. He has served as an SRO at both the high school and middle school levels. As a 20 year veteran of the agency, his recognition was something that was long overdue. Sgt. Johnson has been involved in teaching elementary school fifth graders Substance Abuse Violence Education (SAVE) curriculum which includes a large segment on the importance of avoiding dangerous illegal drugs, underage drinking and alcohol abuse. Sgt. Johnson was also active in the implementation of Project Graduation which is a pregraduation party for high school seniors. The party raises awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving and asks students to sign a pledge that they will avoid those dangers during their nal hours of high school. Sgt. Johnson has a strong belief that the powerful message delivered to fth graders lays the groundwork to keep students from abusing alcohol and helps reduce the number of potential motorists who might end up on our roads operating a motor vehicle under the in uence. His love and appreciation for the students is obvious as students ock to him when he is involved in social activities as well as in the teaching environment. At the SAVE graduation ceremony it is obvious that the students have a great love for Sgt. Johnson as he presents the program certi cates, selects essay winners and makes the students take their SAVE oath. But Sgt. Johnsons dedication to keeping Wakulla County roads safe is not limited to his work with students at the high school and middle school level. Sgt. Johnson worked multiple details involving DUI enforcement and he has also worked Party Patrol where deputies handle details involving underage drinking. He has worked to keep students safe through the high school seat belt check where students only get to leave the student parking area after they show Sgt. Johnson on the way out that they are buckled in before hitting the highway. Sgt. Johnson was one of the deputies responsible for teaching nearly a dozen Wakulla High School students the Teen Driver Challenge. The program focused on training students to better handle a motor vehicle in an obstacle course but it also featured a section on the impacts of alcohol and drugs on driving and reaction time. The students also took turns taking a ride in the Convincer which was on loan from the Florida Sheriffs Association and allows an individual to climb into a seat and experience the impact of a low speed traf c crash. The bump of the convincer at the end of the track gives students a jolt even though it is simulating a crash at less than 10 miles per hour. One of the most important aspects about being a School Resource Of cer relates to also being a mentor. Sgt. Johnson believes that helping the students make the correct decisions is a key to their growth as a person. He counsels students in both alcohol and drug abuse issues on a regular basis. A student who got into trouble as a freshman recently thanked Sgt. Johnson for his assistance while a student. The student ended up correcting his freshman mistake and graduated from Wakulla High School without ever getting into trouble again. Sgt. Johnson also helped two students who made poor choices early in their high school career by recommending them for entrance into the military. The students were able to correct their behavior after being counseled by the school resource of cer and successfully made their entry into the military. My goal is to open their eyes to the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse and get them to correct the behavior, said Sgt. Johnson. The reward comes later when the student is impacted by the message and comes back later and thanks me for helping them out. MADD Florida presented Sgt. Johnson with a plaque for the agency which recognizes Excellence in Agency DUI Enforcement. He also received a plaque, For your performance and dedication to DUI enforcement in support of MADDs mission. MADD recognizes Sgt. Johnson Special to The News The Wakulla Democratic Womens Club announced today that they are taking the lead in gaining large scale community commitment to vote in this years primary by organizing an event to get its citizens to the polls.

I hope and pray that you do defeat your opponent in the Primary Election. If you do not defeat Steve Fults, I can guarantee you that I will not be voting for Steve Fults in the General Election. In my opinion, Steve Fults is a handpicked Candidate of Howard Kessler and I believe that I would not even vote for myself if I had received support from Howard Kessler and his Cronies or if I would have been handpicked by Howard Kessler to run for any ofce. I personally believe that you will beat Steve Fults in a convincing manner in the Primary Election and you will also win the General Election in an impressive manner. I will do whatever I can in assisting you in your conquest of becoming reelected to your ofce. You and Virginia are very precious people and this County needs more people of your caliber.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 Page 9ASpecial to The NewsAlmost 20 years ago, a group of men and women from Wakulla County got together to begin the very long road to understanding sinkholes, caves and springs. This citizens support group was named Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park. Two decades later, that park has provided more scienti c information about water than any other area in the state. The public is invited to free programs about Florida springs and their protective wetlands. Many community members are unaware, and therefore unconcerned, about the many threats to our Springs and to our water. This means that they are unaware of what they may do help or to worsen the situation. Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park are now stepping outside of the 6,000-acre state park boundary. They have prepared free and fun programs that will bring some of the science gathered during explorations at the park directly to citizens. The FIRST EVENT BEGINS SATURDAY, AUG. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wakulla One Stop Community Center, Shadeville Road, Crawfordville. Please invite your neighbors to become part of our community: aware, informed, and proactive in protecting our shared resource, Floridas water and particularly the WAKULLA SPRINGSHED. The event will address Floridas springs, water quality and quantity issues both locally and statewide. Presenters at the August event are Dr. Bob Knight, director of the Florida Springs Institute, Gainesville. He has collaborated with the other presenters, videographer John Moran and art historian Lesley Gamble to illustrate in an engaging way the seriousness of the state of Floridas springs. Come and meet the presenters at 6:30, followed by a showing of John Morans incredible underwater photography and lm called Springs Eternal. During the SECOND EVENT, SATURDAY, SEPT. 13, 11:30-12:30 p.m., Wakulla County Public Library, Medart, the program spreads outward from springs to the wetlands that protect and feed these springs. Entitled DO BLADDERWORTS MAKE A SOUND? , visitors will be invited to learn to imitate the rhythms of nature with Sandy and Sammy Tedder. Wetlands biologist, Katherine Gilbert of the Beechwood community, promises an up-close look at the ora and fauna of a wetland. The carnivorous bladderwort, for instance, snaps up the invertebrates in a wetland but can you hear that? Many of the larger mammals that feed on vegetation and provide an insight into a healthy wetland are called manatees. The LAST PRESENTATION IN THIS SERIES IS PLANNED FOR NOV. 1 at 11 a.m. at the Fort San Marcos State Historic Park, St. Marks, entitled WATERLOGGED, MANATEES IN WETLANDS with bio chemist Sean McGlynn. The more energetic visitor is invited on a eld trip as part of the series. A TWO-MILE HIKE IN THE WAKULLA SPRINGS STATE PARKS RIVERSINKS TRACT (the entrance to the Riversinks hike is off the Cajer Posey Road entrance to Wakulla Springs State Park) takes participants past sinkholes, sinking streams and swallets. Springs Ambassador Cal Jamison calls this excursion: Passage Into the Underground: Swallets, Sinkholes and Springs, Oh My! Sign-up for the OCT. 4, 9 A.M. FIELD TRIP will be available at the two upcoming events. A video of the proceedings will be uploaded for all to see and understand the issues. For more information call 443-8143 or visit the Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park Facebook page.. OPERATION SANTA IS HOMELESS. Its not all bad because the reason they are homeless is because the One Stop Center is occupying OSs previous home. CAN YOU HELP? Do you know of a building or large house that is available now through end of December? Approx. 2000 sq. ft. minimum with heating and air is needed. OS will pay the utilities but has no funds to pay for rent because there are too many presents to buy. Please contact Janice Eakin at 524-1818 if you know of a place. Please be advised beginning Thursday, Aug. 7, SURF ROAD from US 319 in Sopchoppy and 1.8 miles south will be closed for approximately two weeks in an effort to complete construction improvements at Buckhorn Creek. Practices for the 2014 WHS CROSS COUNTRY TEAMS began this week, with practices Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at Azalea Park at 6 p.m. When school starts on the Aug. 18, practices will be held Monday Friday at the high school track, beginning at 2:45 p.m. Since Aug.18 is an early release day, practice that day will begin at 12:30 p.m. Each runner must have a current physical to participate in practices. Anyone interested in running with the team should come out. There are no tryouts or cuts everyone has a place on the team. Any questions can be directed to Coach Paul Hoover at 509-7861. SPONSORSHIPS are available for the rst annual RELAY FOR LIFE Harvesting for a Cure fall festival and chili cook off at Hudson Park 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18. Sponsorship levels are for $100, $300 and $500. For more information contact Marion Russ at 322-2652, or email email@example.com. PINOCHLE is a game of the past, one that came long before the electronic games of today. But it is fun and there are many people out there who would like to play. In an attempt to get to know one another, a double deck Pinochle Tournament is planned for Sunday afternoon, Oct. 12 from 2 to 5 p.m. If you have played in the past and would like to do it again please call 2289142 or 926-9254 for more information. The goal is to have a good time but there will be a $5 entry fee which will go toward a rst prize, second prize, and an Oh well, I tried prize. If you have not played for a long time or have only played single deck we hope to have a one day refresher at the end of September.

Grimmett graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas. The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program. Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force. Grimmett is the son of Jacqueline and Thomas Grimmett of Sopchoppy. He is a 2010 graduate of Wakulla High School. By MICHELLE KIRBYSpecial to The News More than 25 members and guests of R. Don McLeod 2469, United Daughters of the Confederacy, recently gathered for a wonderful program. Annette Lindsey, Director of the Black Hawk Cavalry 856 Honor Chapter, provided a captivating program including an extensive display of toys and artifacts of the time period. Two favorites were Jacobs Ladders and church dolls. Both were popular as far back as Colonial times and approved by even the most conservative groups. Despite that a Jacobs ladder is a bit of a magic trick toy, its related story tells of the Biblical account of angels climbing up and down Jacobs ladder to heaven. Church dolls were made of cloth so they would not make noise if dropped on the old wooden church oors. Lindsey also provided a bonus presentation about women who fought during the War Between the States. The Smithsonian documents at least 400 women disguised as man who fought in battle. Many more women served and supported the cause. For example, during the Battle of Marianna in September 1864, women found themselves trapped with the invasion of Union ring upon the main streets of town. Under siege, several women, including the ladies of Mrs. Hunters boarding house, grabbed a gun and assisted the men in protecting the civilians of the town. The invasion resulted in more than 25 percent of the entire male population either killed, wounded or captured. Volunteers from our Chapter will be serving in various capacities, including reenacting the events of ladies of Mrs. Hunters house, at the Sesquicentennial of the Battle of Marianna next month. To prepare us and to learn more about the Battle of Marianna, our Chapter will host author and historian Dale Cox on Aug. 16. Visitors are invited to attend our next meeting on Aug. 16. Please contact Michelle Kirby at 296-2216 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy MARJ LAW I dont know why, but remembering the difference between single action and double action handguns keeps confusing me. So, after five or six YouTube videos on the subject, maybe some of the information will stick this time. First, I liked that the people in the videos carefully and safely showed that the guns they demonstrated were not loaded. Lets consider double action. My best memory trick is to think of the old Certs ad: Its two, two, two mints in one! Double action is two actions. Pulling the trigger cocks the hammer of the gun. The hammer is that doo otchie that protrudes above your hand as youre gripping your pistol. Cocking the hammer is the rst of the double actions. As you continue to pull the trigger, the hammer is released and the gun res. Thats the second of the two actions. When pulling the trigger rst cocks the hammer, and then releases it to shoot, thats double action. On single action guns, you have to cock the hammer or the gun just wont shoot. Remember the western movies where the cowboy fans his left hand to jerk the hammer back, and then he pulls the trigger with his right index finger? Old cowboy guns were usually single action. Single action guns perform one action: releasing the hammer to shoot after it has been cocked. Then there are some guns that can be shot as single action or double action. Take the Smith & Wesson 38 or the Ruger Security Six for examples. These are revolvers. After youve loaded these guns, you can pull the trigger and theyll shoot. Thats double action: the trigger pull both cocks and releases the hammer. However, for many of us, that trigger pull is both long and hard. Its easier to cock the hammer rst, and then shoot. This makes the trigger only have to perform the one function of releasing the hammer. This is single action, and the trigger pull is lighter and easier. So, if you cock the hammer first, you are shooting that revolver as if it were a single action gun. Revolvers are double action guns, but they have the capability of being used as if they are single action. Now that weve talked about revolvers, lets discuss a couple specific semi-automatic handguns. Most of the women who shoot at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office range on Wednesday mornings learned on .22-caliber Rugers or Brownings. These are semi-automatic handguns, and they are single action guns. You load the first round by jacking the slide. This cocks the hammer and pushes up a round from the magazine into the chamber. When you pull the trigger, the hammer is released and the gun res. Right after the gun res, the bolt slides backwards with enough force to cock the hammer again and load another round. And this is what seems to have kept confusing me. Im thinking that the trigger pull both cocked and released the hammer, so thats two actions, right? Double action? No. The trigger pull only released the hammer that was cocked when you loaded the gun. It was the backward jolt of the bolt that cocked the hammer for the next round. The trigger pull didnt do it. So thats why the .22s we were shooting were single action handguns; the trigger pull only provided the one action. A few double-action guns are the Smith & Wesson M&P .45, the H&K USP .45 and the 9mm Rohrbaugh. Double action handguns have longer and more dif cult trigger pulls because that trigger is providing those two actions: not just one. This is a safety feature. Since it requires real effort to pull the trigger, its unlikely to go off unless you have the rm intention to shoot, which makes for a safer carry gun. In general, the single action guns have lighter and shorter trigger pulls. This can make target shooting easier and more fun. Now, lets get confusing again. If you have a strikerred gun, thats one with no visible hammer, are you shooting single or double action?Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsDifference between single and double action HOME ON THE RANGE www.WakullaDiving.com Wakulla Diving Center, Inc.

Now shes running at open on a 4-D (four division) horse. Weve also had 80-yearolds out here. Theyre really good. They whoop her, Dunaway said, pointed at her daughter, who nodded. Dunaway also heads up the 4-H Horsemasters, which is also seeking more membership as well for young people ages 8 to 18. 4-H offers a more comprehensive, educational approach to horses and riding. Katrina Cochran, the clubs treasurer, said she has been associated with the club on-and-off for almost three decades. Kids that I used to haul to this show, now bring their kids, Cochran said. Thats the reason I stay involved for the kids. Porter said working with horses builds values and character traits in children that bene t them for a lifetime. Its something you dont lose, Porter said. It builds a lot of responsibility. The horses have got to be fed. Theyve got to be brushed. Theyve got to be taken care of. And then theres competition and getting out in front of people. Cochran encouraged parents to check out the shows and bring their kids. Everyone is really supportive, Cochran said. When the kids start, we cheer them on. Even if theyre doing lead line where were leading them through, we cheer and clap. Theyve done something. Children are given ribbons for participation, and club members hope to see a lot more little ones come through. Money brought in by the club not only goes to prizes, it also goes toward management of the county-owned facility for lights, materials, tractor use, utilities and insurance. The arena is inpart funded by a grant from the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program. Last year everyone got a little trophy, but no real prize, Porter said. Theres a lot of clubs where youll win a saddle and bigger prizes. It used to be that way here. The recession really put a hurt on the club, and everybody. Having horses is an expensive hobby. Things got tough. For a while there you could hardly give a horse away. I have turned down quite a few horses. We also went a period of time with no arena. Membership dues are $20 for individuals, and $35 for a family annually. Its $4 per show event for members, and $6 for non-members who want to show and compete. The club is always open to sponsors to help support the facility and purchase a sign, which are posted around the arena for all to view. A $50 discount for sponsor signs is being offered. Businesses can advertise for $125 per sign for the season. Prospective members may get more information about joining the club at the jackpot show, subsequent shows, or by calling the following members: President Jim Porter 509-0555, Treasurer Katrina Cochran or Vice President and Ringmaster Pete Cochran 933-0056, Secretary Teresa Porter 508-9423, or Show Secretary Phyllis Dunaway 5975025.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com As a follow-up to last weeks article, David Guttman sent in the following additions: The current emphasis from the dermatologists is to deemphasize the ABCD guide lines in favor of questioning ANY lesion that does not heal in one month. Cancers often outgrow their blood supplies and as such have a hard time healing, so suspect any lesion that does not heal or re-ulcerates (becomes an open sore) in a month. See your dermatologist and have it checked out. In Florida, because we live in the Sunshine State most insurance companies let you go directly to a dermatologist without needing a referral from your primary physician. As far as being a retired medical doctor, I have not really retired, just cut back a bit. I tried to retire once, but it was the worst afternoon of my life. Coxswain Bob Asztalos sent in the following report and pictures from a safety patrol on Saturday August 9th. Yesterday, Steve Hults, Ron Eudy, Chuck Hickman and Bob Asztalos conducted a show the flag patrol covering a good part of the Eastern sector of our area of operation (AOR). We left the Shell Island Fish Camp under perfect sailing conditions: a rising tide; smooth sea conditions and a light breeze out of the southwest. We passed a family of manatees playing in the Wakulla River then headed out the St. Marks Channel and southwest to the Ochlocknee Shoals where shermen there and off Alligator Point could see the Coast Guard was out looking after their safety. From there we sailed into Panacea, where we had an excellent lunch, sharing conversation with the Sea Tow captain at the Waterfront Grille. We next proceeded to Shell Point where we navigated the narrow channel into the canals of Paradise Village to nd our fellow Auxiliarist Bill Wannall on his dock. After a short visit, it was time to proceed back to St. Marks where we had to navigate typical Florida afternoon seas. Ten knot Southwest winds, three-foot seas with whitecaps and numerous sandbars kept the crew on its toes as we navigated back to the St. Marks channel and past the beach, a local sandbar where boaters tie up and enjoy the sun and shallow water. Seven hours after commencing our patrol we were back at the dock cleaning our vessel. It was a successful mission and many boaters in our area were able to see that the Coast Guard was there for them. We will be holding a safe boating class on Saturday, Aug. 16 at the Wakulla County Extension Office, 84 Cedar Ave, Crawfordville. Class starts at 8:30 a.m. and will last until 5 p.m. Those participating in the class will learn about safe boat handling, boater responsibilities, navigation, emergencies, proper trailering, and many more skills that will make you a safer boater. Cost of the class is $15 for an individual or $30 for a family up to four. There are already nine people signed up to take the class. With space being limited any interest person should contact member Chuck Hickman at (850) 9269598. You can also register online at www.uscgaux.net and follow the Public Education link. Member David Guttman gave a presentation on the dangers of skin cancer as training during the meeting. He reminded members that exposure to the sun in our area is hard to avoid, so we must take precautions to limit dangerous levels of exposure. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux.net then contact our Flotilla Staff Officer for Human Resources, Raye Crews, at Rayec@ uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at Duanet@ uscgaux.net.

Did you ever swim down one of our rivers and see the head of a sh sticking up out of the sandy bottom? This sh is actually an eel, one of 19 species worldwide, of the Anguillidae family, the genus Anguilla. These creatures live their lives in fresh water rivers, lakes and our caves, only to return to the sea to spawn. This creature has been studied since the days of Aristotle. He thought they grew up from spontaneous generation like earth worms. In 1777 Mondini described them as sh but in 1876 a young Sigmund Freud could not nd male eels and moved on to other topics, now better known to history. Schmidt in 1904, began a series of cruises from Europe westward collecting the clear Leptocephlis larvae. He found the further west he sailed, the smaller the eel larvae were in his nets until he arrived in the Sargaso Sea. He concluded without seeing eel spawning that the tiny larvae originated from this location. Young eel larvae, called leptocephali eat small ocean particles called Sea Snow. They travel in the Gulf Stream and as they approach the coastline, they become a glass eels before entering the estuaries for their life in freshwater as a pigmented sh. Eels entering the Atlantic Ocean from Europe or the Americas spawn in the Sargasso Sea, but the homing ability of their returning larvae is poorly understood. Today we believe the American eel is a different species from the European eel. Adult eels, after a growth period of many years, will head back to sea, sometimes climbing over land bridges, through wet ground and over sand dunes moving much like a snake. Using radio transmitters, Tesch followed the European eels migration to spawning grounds and found they can move up to 15 km per day. That means it would take the eel 165-175 days to reach the Sargasso Sea from the English Channel. European eels have been heavily harvested with populations diminished by as much as 80 percent since the 1960s. Most eels consumed in the USA are from farm-raised populations but not bred in captivity. The glass eel phase of the Anguilla is often caught in Maine and exported around the world to be grown out and sold as food particularly in Asia where the sh is considered a delicacy. But around 1997, glass eels arriving at estuaries dropped to 10 percent of their previous levels, forcing prices skyrocket to over $1,000/kg. But here in North Florida, Anguilla eels are a source of entertainment. Caverns along the Cave Divers Trail from Ponce De Leon to High Springs see an annual in ux of these slim creatures which quickly become tame when divers feed them. I have seen our Anguilla eel reach lengths of over a meter long. Once tame, they swim right up to a diver and probe for food. They feed on small sh and other meat. They have a small mouth with small spikelike teeth that surprise more than hurt when a nger is mistaken for a morsel of food. Otherwise, keep your hand closed when they are around. Divers can usually nd a tame population out in the open in Morrison Springs Cavern or down the river from Morrison Springs buried in the sand. Morrison Springs County Park is located just south of I-10 off Rt 81 north of Bruce. Net ix has a great PBS documentary on the eels of the world, and well-worth watching.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 Page 13AFrom Page 3A Kari Edwards asked the commissioners to table the item to ensure the verbal promises from the developer to work with neighborhood in expectations laid out by the board last fall were met. The fact that there has been zero contact appears to be a sneaky move, she said. Marc Edwards said neighborhood residents just happened to recently find out about the site plan moving forward. He said at the meetings last fall, the developer promised to keep them in the loop, and have adjustments made to the site plan, which did not happen. Dod Walker said, Would I rather not have an 80-unit apartment complex in my backyard? Yeah! But if thats the way its got to be, I can live with that. But nobody has come by to ask me, Mr. Walker, what can we do to try to make you happy? Nobody did that. I would love to sit down with Mr. Dickson. Ive known him my whole life. Walker said maybe if someone took time to show him the site plans, he could decide how high of a privacy fence he needs to prevent an upperoor apartment resident from looking off their balcony, On a Saturday morning when I walk out into my backyard and get into my pool. Its disheartening. Thats all I can ask let me be part of the process. Commission Chair Richard Harden called Dickson up for discussion, since he is the agent. Dickson pointed out the natural buffer where no trees will be cut down. He said there will be a chain link fence around the property line. Rental price per unit will be $800. Dickson said the homeowners had been promised a meeting on the original property, which fell through. I didnt meet with these people because I didnt know what Mr. Gaby had told them in the past about the site plan, Dickson said. Were talking about two different pieces of property. Kessler said, For most people, their home is their largest investment. Its an integral part of their life. The least this board can do is before taking a vote, to table this to the next meeting, give the neighborhood an opportunity to get together with these developers, and come back to the board. Marc Edwards said, This shouldnt be a quick vote. This could be tabled. Were not saying dont build this thing. Were saying take this under consideration and let us have a chance. Its coming. We accept that. Moore said it all comes down to a lack of communication. Youve got to work it out, Moore said to Dickson and the homeowners. You cant run over Mr. Dickson, and neither can he run over you. Moore added that is Dickson fails to work with the homeowners, I will not stand by you in the future. Ill hold you to that, Walton. You have got to reach agreement with these people. Commissioners were in agreement that Dickson had followed the law, but a sit-down with the local residents for further dialogue to mitigate the impact was necessary. Dickson said tabling the item will cause him nancial hardship, but gave his word he would work something out to create more of a buffer. The matter was tabled 4-0 for further discussion, and will be revisited at the Sept. 22 BOCC meeting. In other matters before the board: The board served as a pass-through for three amendments to the county charter that will appear on the ballot in the Nov. 4 election, as recommended by the volunteer Charter Review Commission. Requirements for the BOCC to adopt a debt policy and fund balance policy; and residency requirements for commission candidates were unanimously moved ahead for referendum by commissioners. However, Commissioner Kessler repeatedly said he would rather the charter amendment referendum appear during a presidential election year, when there is greater voter turnout. The board was unanimous in adopting updated flood insurance rate maps. New Wakulla Circuit Court Judge Dawn Caloca-Johnson was introduced. New Library Services Director Robyn Hurst was introduced. Dana Peck was recognized by Kessler and the board for her recent induction into the Florida College System Activities Association Hall of Fame. The board accepted the conveyance of the Soppchoppy sewer system, so the county can handle the long term maintenance. The board approved changes to the family enclave agreement, which streamlines the process so an applicant does not have to wait 90 days to move a structure on to a property to live and care of a sick family member. A SHIP housing assistance project change order was approved for resident Leah Godwin contingent upon her receiving approval from the rst lien holder of demolition of the existing home and construction of a new one. There was considerable debate as to whether or not proper procedure and rules were followed by GSG who is the housing contract administrator for the county. According to County Administrator David Edwards it appears that GSG did follow the County LHAP rules and State SHIP rules in determining Godwins eligibility, and had followed notice requirements. He went on to say that due to this case the county is in the process of amending its LHAP to prevent confusion in the future and to make the process cleaner. Kessler requested board approval to reduce the current 7 percent public utility service tax to 6 percent. Moore said he would only approve the motion if it was amended to 5 percent. Kessler said he would not know how cover the additional cuts. Moore withdrew his second of the motion, and the motion died. Citizen Charles Hickman stood to say he was discouraged that a valid motion was made with numbers to back it up, and Moore made it into a political game. Board hears Wakulla Environmental Institute campus update, apartment woes From the Front PageWhen someone, a new house, ties onto the sewer, they pay an access fee, he said. That goes toward repayment of the plant and operations of the system. Were going to take big potion of that and apply it to the principal, and well shrink that time period. In the next 10 to 15 years, the way were growing now, well need another plant expansion. Edwards said if growth suddenly picked up, the expansion ensures there wont be a hiccup. And thats the worst thing as growth is starting to occur, you dont want to put skids on it, he said. Were trying to get ahead of that curve. It took a year and a half for the county to get a deal struck with USDA. Its not an easy thing to get, and we are very fortunate to get it, Edwards said, The reason we got it in the past, the commission has tried to keep up with the rates as costs of treatment increased. If we hadnt done that, USDA would say we were not being scally responsible in trying to cover our cost. If we had a low rate, and the sewer plant was losing money, they would have never funded us. Rates will stay the same for customers, Edwards said. Further details of the budgetary impact were provided at a special meeting of the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners on July 22. Edwards said a negative economic trickle-effect would occur if the expansion did not happen. All of the sudden developers couldnt sell houses, that means carpenters couldnt build, and then there are the realtors it would have a big economic effect on the county. The grant will also satisfy the current loan on the plant, on which the county is upside-down. We own more on our plant than we have capacity to sell, Edwards said. So the grant part of that will reverse that. Were getting a chance from the government from the grant program to correct that. It might not smell good or look good, but its a great opportunity for our county. Its a big deal.Otter Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion readies county for growth Get in the Fight Join the team Get in the Fight Join the team NEEDS YOU!

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comSummertime in Stories about hidden riches and shipwreck treasure troves have mesmerized many generations of Wakulla Countys young and optimistic. The thought of casually strolling on the white sands and spotting an old coin in the surf is a wish many beach combers have fantasized about for countless hours. Every circular shape becomes a potential Spanish doubloon or eight-real coin from a long ago hurricane disaster or pirate raid. Partially buried clams and scallops which display the faintest circular shape cause the pulse to race. To the dedicated amateur treasure hunter, the next hundred yards of beach just might produce a valuable rarity and the envy of onlookers.Then the complete coin shape is spotted, glistening in the clear shallow water. The brief moment of ecstasy is quickly replaced with the sobering reality the coin shape is really another of Wakulla Countys shoreline native creatures. Sand dollars are the local marine equivalent of fools gold for the susceptible fortune hunter. Sand dollars inhabit the local bays and estuaries out beyond the average tidal line, but can be found in the deeper waters of the Gulf of Mexico. While it is not unusual to see specimens the size of silver dollars, sand dollars can exceed six inches in diameter. This ancient bottom dweller has a nearly at profile which complements its circular frontal appearance. Its shell is rigid and composed of tightly bonded plates. Its thin skin varies in shades from a brownish green to gray, sometime resembling a coin exposed to centuries of seawater. It only turns to a bleached white after death. Like its close relative, the sea urchin, the animals exterior is covered with spines. In the case of the sand dollar, the spines are all short and do not pose a threat to swimmers. Sand dollars use the spine for burrowing into the sandy bottoms. They bury themselves just below the surface in search of food and spend most of their lives managing the currentdriven shifting sands. They subsist near the bottom of the food chain on nourishment delivered by the tides. Algae and tiny organic particles scattered in the sand provide enough nutrients for them to ourish and reproduce. The sand dollars mouth is located in the center of its underside. It uses its tube feet to identify and move food to this opening. Unlike sea urchins, sand dollars are lter feeders. They use a sticky mucus-like material to gather and strain their tiny food particles from the grains of sand and shell fragments. The tube feet, which are also found on the upper surface, are used for respiration in that location. Fortunately, sand dollars are not an endangered species and are thriving successfully despite the rigors of the 21st Century. There are several sand dollar species in the Atlantic, Pacific and the Indian Oceans and most of warm waters of the world. It has been intensively studied in connection with the effects of pollution on the environment. While not Spanish treasure, it is a valuable asset in Wakulla County, and the world.

The teachers, administrators and sta are all looking forward to seeing our returning students and to welcoming the new ones to our system in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and other grades where students have just moved into our school district. I look forward to another successful year with the best students, parents, and educators in the state. The teamwork we have contributes to making our school system one of the best in Florida and in the nation. Our continued success remains dependent on this special relationship. As we begin this new year, I am extremely excited about the academic and career opportunities for students in our district. We anticipate continued success for all of our students with our new state assessment as always, but we look forward to expanding student pathways through our career and technical industry certi cation programs at Wakulla High School. This year we will begin our new Welding certification program on the campus at Wakulla High school. is traditional vocational program is joining our highly successful Automotive Service Technology program which began last year. We are very excited about these two programs which are the result of our partnership with Lively Vocational and Technical Center. The involvement from our parents and community makes Wakulla a special place to teach our children. With such a value placed on education and a motto of Committed to Success, we hope that 2014-2015 is your best year yet.

Page 2B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy KAREN WELLSOf Wakulla SchoolsWhen the first bell rings at the start of school on Monday, Aug. 18, Wakulla County classrooms will be staffed with veteran and novice educators. Our high-performing teachers, coaches and staff are eager to kick off the school year in an excellent district. Wakulla enjoys the reputation of being a premier school district, said Superintendent Bobby Pearce. It is the quality of work with our students, parents and community that has created this welldeserved reputation. Our team spirit and dedication to Wakullas students continue to be our driving force. It is great to be celebrating the new school year and the promise of possibility. Chief Human Capital Of cer Karen Wells adds, New applicants cite the warm welcoming culture of Wakulla as a main attractor as well as the opportunity to join a great school system. Our way of life coupled with Wakullas high performing status and desire to serve continue to entice outstanding applicants. Thirty-three new teachers have been hired to date for the 2014-2015 school year as a result of retirements, relocations, and resignations. While most teachers hired are from Florida, 19 percent of our new hires were out-of-state transfers. Eighty-one percent of the new hires own a home or land in Wakulla County and 50 percent have children who will be attending our schools. Beyond the new hires, the district has had multiple instructional volunteer transfers. Superintendent Pearce adds, Wakulla teachers are to be commended for their commitment to the system at every level. They master their craft and seek new challenges, so we want to support them by providing opportunities. As teachers transfer to new positions or new schools, they bring new energy and strengthen continuity across the entire school system. Changes in the administrative line-up have also occurred this summer, shared Wells. Wakulla Middle School welcomes Rick Myhre as their new principal and Wakulla High School welcomes Mike Barwick. Laura Kelley has assumed the helm at Wakulla Pre-K as interim principal. Kim Dutton transferred to Medart Elementary School as Principal and is excitedly working with her Assistant Principal Belinda McElroy. Mike Crouch has taken the headship role at the Sopchoppy Education Center while Dod Walker has transferred to the District Of ce as a Director overseeing Adult Education, Dropout Prevention and Athletic Programs. New Deans of Students were selected at Crawfordville Elementary School and Wakulla Middle School. Frankie Harvey has been selected to assume the Dean of Students position at Crawfordville Elementary and Amy Bryan has been selected for Wakulla Middle School. Katherine Spivey has hit the ground running this summer as the new Dean of Instruction at the District Of ce. Vicki Tillman has also been appointed as the Assistant Principal at Riversink Elementary, replacing Melinda Young who will retire December 2014 and Louis Hernandez has been appointed as the Riversprings Middle School Assistant Principal. The Summer New Educator Boot Camp, facilitated by veteran teacher Catherine Cutchen and IT Director Belinda Fries, helped acclimate and acculturate new Wakulla educators. Topics included Floridas Educator Accomplished Practices, classroom management, ethics, the rst day of school, lesson planning, technology, constructive criticism and instructional strategies.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 Page 3BSpecial to The NewsWith a partnership between the Wakulla County School District and the Florida Department of Health of Wakulla County, Wakulla County school grounds are now tobacco free. Wakulla County School District was one of only ve districts in Florida that did not have a comprehensive tobacco free policy until now. During the June 2014 School Board meeting, the School Board adopted a policy that makes all of its campuses tobacco free. Smoking or the use of any tobacco product will no longer be allowed on any Wakulla County school campus. Smoking and the use of tobacco products in general, including ecigarettes, will also be prohibited at all schoolsponsored and school facility use events, including football games. Enforcement of the policy for adults includes providing information on cessation programs offered for free through the Wakulla County Health Department. Nicotine patches and nicotine gum are acceptable for adults to use for their duration on school campuses. For students, this is nothing new, since the use of tobacco products on campus has always been prohibited. New Welcome to Our Tobacco Free School signs will soon be posted in many locations around the schools, serving as a reminder that tobacco in any form is no longer allowed in any area. Wakulla County has joined a growing list of school districts in the state and across the nation who recognize the importance of a healthy environment for everyone, said Tonya Hobby, Tobacco Prevention Specialist for the Florida Department of Health in Wakulla County. The policy in its entirety is available on the Wakulla County School District website under School Board Policies, Policy 2.90. In part it states, The Board is acutely aware of the serious health risks associated with the use of tobacco products both to users and non-users, and that most tobacco use begins before the age of 18. Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable death in Florida. The Board recognizes that District personnel and school visitors also serve as role models to students and, therefore, adopts this Tobacco Free School Policy to endorse a healthy lifestyle and prevent tobacco use. By BETH ODONNELLAssistant Superintendent Superintendent Bobby Pearce is excited to continue Wakulla County school improvements for the upcoming 201415 year that begins for students on Aug. 18. We made some great strides last year, and I am happy to see that we can plan on doing some improvements at each level of elementary, middle, and high school while still keeping a careful eye on the taxpayers dollars, Pearce said. Student safety is a priority at every school, and Riversink Elementary School is piloting a buzz-in system for visitors. Using federal Homeland Security dollars allotted to the district, Riversink was chosen because it has the newest doors to support the system with very little structural changes needed. If it is as successful as we expect, we will be looking at all of our schools in the future, Pearce said. At Wakulla Middle School, renovations from last years HVAC upgrades continue to bring the WMS campus on par with the Riversprings Middle Schools facilities. Wakulla Middle will receive a completely new gym oor, as well as new exterior doors, locks, and new bathroom doors. All of this is paid for through earmarked money that can only be used on facilities. Both middle schools and Wakulla High School will bene t from a revived Chorus program, giving students who love to sing or who want to learn how to sing yet another opportunity to enjoy the arts. In addition, Wakulla High School will join the pre-kindergarten, elementary and middle schools in providing a breakfast program to all students. The program consists of free, reduced price, or full pay breakfast for students, depending on their needs. We cant teach children when they are hungry, Pearce said. This way, all students can start off their day wellnourished and ready to learn. Lunch is already set up this same way at all schools, according to federal guidelines. Wakulla High School continues improvements on both the facility and academic sides. The asphalt is being resurfaced, school grounds are being improved, and signs for clear directions of where visitors are to go to get the answers they need are in place. WHS has nalized a completely renovated Student Services Center, where students and parents can get information all in one place like course scheduling, scholarships, counseling, careers, testing, exceptional student education, and much more. A new social worker position will be filled by MSW Ashley Anderson, who will be housed in the WHS Student Services Center but be available for all of the schools on an as-needed basis. Also, we will continue our highly successful partnership with Lively Technical Center for year two of the Automotive Technology program, and add Welding on the WHS campus as another Lively program, said Pearce. There will be even more Tallahassee Community College dual enrollment course offerings on the WHS campus, and a new dual enrollment agreement with Florida State University for students who qualify to take courses at FSU. These college courses are at no cost to the parents or guardians. All in all, the 201415 school year holds many opportunities for students to excel in the classroom, in the arts, and on the sports elds Wakulla County School District Administrators spent two days togeth-er this summer preparing for school year 2014-15 through team building, recognizing strengths and succession planning. This years theme was Were All Aboard. Wakulla County art teachers provided the colorful train theme decorations for the retreat. While reviewing recent accomplishments that included; increased security, IT additions, facility improvements, program improvements, increased student recognition, dual-enrollment and career ready pro-grams, and the initiation of state mandated performance pay, the dis-trict has maintained an A status. Strategies to address the challenges of legislative mandates and new testing requirements were shared. Superintendent Pearce said, Improving student school experiences and improving educational opportunities continues to be our focus. World class education must come from world class teams. The Wakulla County School District leadership team is all aboard and committed to success for all of our kids. We are energetically looking forward to a new school year.School improvements continue for 2014-15Schools, health department partner for tobacco-free campuses Administrators hold retreatSPECIAL TO THE NEWS (850) 926-3777 www.crawfordvilletkd.comwww.tigerrockmartialarts.com ELITE MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING 5 Weeks of Training FIVE$99.00WEEKS To be the best,We TRAIN with the best!

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy BETH ODONNELLAssistant Superintendent Students can now graduate from Wakulla High School one step closer to their careers. New and ongoing Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses all lead to industry certifications that students can earn at no cost to them. These programs, formerly termed as Vocational, offer students the chance to learn many skills that can lead directly to employment after high school graduation; to certi cate programs in postsecondary schools like Lively Technical Center; and/or on to college degrees. Superintendent Bobby Pearce is starting a new Welding CTE program for 2014-15 to add to the already popular Automotive Technology program started last year through a dual enrollment partnership with Lively Technical Center. Wakulla High School students are already earning automotive repair industry certi cation hours that then articulate into a certi cate program at Lively. Welding will work the same way. Both programs are at no cost to the student while he or she is enrolled at WHS. For the third year, Riversprings Middle School and Wakulla Middle School technology teachers are teaching a high school credit CTE course. It is the first course in a series called Computing for College and Careers. It articulates to several programs at WHS should students choose to continue in the areas of Digital Design, Web Design, or Accounting. It also meets students vocational credit requirement for high school graduation. Many students work in the areas they were trained in during high school or afterwards in order to work their way through college or other training programs after high school. They often can get higher paying jobs with high school training in a CTE area than if they had no training and were working for minimum wage. For example, students who graduate from the WHS Medical Academy with their Certi ed Nursing Assistant certi cate can nd work right away. In the Engineering Academy started in 2012-13, students are earning Tallahassee Community College dual enrollment credits that lead to certi cates in areas of Manufacturing Engineering before they even graduate from high school. They can also earn industry certi cation in Autodesk Inventor and other software design areas. Other CTE programs of study include Culinary Operations, Accounting, Web Design, Digital Design, Carpentry, and TV Production. Students can also take other CTE classes at Lively Technical Center at no cost while in high school, such as Avionics. Students who complete a program or who are close to completing one can also work in that area while in high school and get paid for their On the Job Training (OJT) experience. Courses are open to all students in general education and in exceptional education classes who are seeking a standard diploma. There are no prerequisites to the initial CTE classes, and anyone may apply to the academies. The Engineering Academy does have a prerequisite of passing Algebra I in middle school. In addition, there are specialized career preparation programs for some students with disabilities. They also have OJT work experience opportunities. Schedule requests are made during the second semester of the school year with the help of a high school administrator or guidance counselor as they meet with students one on one. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the process. It is a good idea for students who are in attendance at WHS to take the time to learn about the programs they might be interested in for the next school year. Incoming 8th graders are given presentations, videos, visits, and a Curriculum Night to learn more about the programs before they enter the high school. For more information about career training, WHS Career Specialist Sarabeth Jones or WHS Assistant Principal of Curriculum Sunny Chancy can answer questions about the CTE programs at 926-2221. Administrators at the Wakulla County School District office at 926-0065 can answer questions about the following to ensure access and equity in CTE programs: Title IX Sue Anderson, Director of Special Programs and District Assessment; 504 compliance Tanya English, Executive Director of Exceptional Student Education and Student Services; and high school and postsecondary CTE courses Katherine Spivey, District CTE Director.Special to The NewsBoot Camp 2014, facilitated by Drill Sgt. Catherine Cutchen, consisted of a full day of mini-sessions led by high-performing teachers and staff: Beth Brown, John Kane, Jan Pearce, Nick Weaver, Stan Ward, Josh Sandgren, Jeff VanSykle, Jodie Martin, Jessica Wells, and Diane Driggers.

The teacher leaders who facilitated each mini-session are to be commended for their commitment to success for all students across the District.

In uenza, pertussis (whooping cough), and measles are just a few of the serious vaccine-preventable diseases that still affect children and adults in the United States today. Immunizations are as important today as they were in the age of polio in the 1950s, when the March of Dimes funded the pioneering work that resulted in the vaccine that still is used today against this deadly disease, says Dr. Karen Harris, Chair of the Program Services Committee for the March of Dimes Florida Chapter. Back-to-school season is the time of the year when we especially encourage kids to get their shots to protect their health. Even small groups of unimmunized people can quickly spread disease, Dr. Harris says. In the US, both measles and whooping cough are at epidemic rates. According to the Florida Department of Health, the most recent school year (2013) immunization status reports for all 67 Florida counties indicate rates of: Kindergarten: 93.2 percent (State and National goal is 95 percent) Seventh grade: 96.6 percent (State goal is 95 percent; national goal is 90 percent) Two-year-old children (2013): 86.72 percent (State and National goal is 90 percent). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says diseases can spread when infected people cough, sneeze, or even talk. Children may spread the u virus for up to three days before they show any symptoms and for longer than a week after getting sick, putting their classmates at risk of becoming sick too. The CDC, the March of Dimes, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists all recommend that, in addition to children, all pregnant women and those planning to become pregnant should get an annual u shot in the fall. The normal biological changes of pregnancy put pregnant women at increased risk of the harmful effects of u. Recent research suggests that the u vaccine may also lower a womans risk of having a stillbirth or miscarriage. The u vaccine helps protect your body from infection, and this protection is in turn passed on to your baby during pregnancy, adds Dr. Harris, explaining that immunization during pregnancy helps keep the newborn safe during the rst few months of life until he or she is ready for the rst set of vaccinations. Parents, grandparents, caregivers, and anyone in close contact with an infant should get an adult pertussis vaccine to help protect themselves and to help stop the spread of the disease to the newborns in their lives. Newborns are most at-risk for this highly contagious and often serious disease because they dont begin receiving their own vaccinations until they are two months old and may not be protected until they have received at least three doses of an infant pertussis vaccine. This year, the March of Dimes continues their work on the Sounds of Pertussis Campaign, a national education campaign started in 2009 to help raise awareness about the potential dangers of pertussis and the importance of adult vaccination. March of Dimes also supports the Word of Mom: Celebrating Generations of Healthy Advice campaign, which empowers moms to make the best health decisions for themselves and their families by making sure their families immunizations are up to date. March of Dimes continues to fund vaccine research and to work with international coalitions seeking to improve immunization rates and eliminate preventable diseases that threaten babies and children. More information on baby vaccinations is available from the March of Dimes website: www. marchofdimes.com/baby/wellbabycare_vaccinations.htmlMarch of Dimes reminds parents to immunize kids for new school year The Wakulla Newswww.thewakullanews.comLooking for Looking for the latest the latest Local Sports Local Sports News?

RIVERSIDE CAFE ST. MARKS Stranger Than Fiction, Aug. 22 & 23 Public Address, Aug. 24 Rick Ott Band, Aug. 29, 30 Live music in Wakulla
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 14, 2014 Page 7BBy DARA KAMTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 8 Interand intra-party scrapes over elections in the sultry months leading up to November are typical hijinks for those already in office and others hoping to join the in-crowd. But the latest scuf e over the GOP-dominated Legislatures congressional map has brought summertime ngerpointing to a halt, at least for members who already have subterranean Capitol parking spaces. Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis surprised even himself by getting the last say in the dispute over the map approved by lawmakers in 2012. House and Senate leaders decided not to ght his ruling last month that they violated the Florida Constitutions voterapproved prohibition against favoring incumbents or political parties, apparently fearful that a contest of his decision could give someone other than themselves control over what the districts should look like. So lawmakers, who are prohibited from taking campaign cash while they are in session, are back in Tallahassee this week and at least part of next week to draw a handful of new districts. The special session gives their opponents, if they have any, the chance to rake in a little extra dough while the incumbents are holed up in the Capitol. The campaigning in the governors race, however, is in overdrive, with both sides slinging mud. Republican Gov. Rick Scott spent the week touting environmental plans, while his likely Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist, eshed out some platform details in the Fair Shot Florida plan aimed at middle-class voters. SUPER-FAST SPECIAL SESSION House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz quickly ordered lawmakers into a special session this week to revise the congressional map struck down by Lewis. Proving that the process is on hyper-speed, the chairmen of the committees working on a new map released a joint proposal hours after the session convened Thursday. The plan was approved by committees Friday and could gain approval from the full Legislature by Wednesday, before lawmakers return home for summer vacations, last-minute primary campaigning or helping get the kids ready for school. The work is focused on correcting the two districts targeted by Lewis: Congressional District 5, represented by Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown, which sprawls across eight counties as it winds its way from Jacksonville to Orlando; and Congressional District 10, represented by Republican Congressman Dan Webster. At least ve other districts abutting the problematic seats could be impacted by the changes. Under the plan revealed by Senate Redistricting Chairman Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, and his House counterpart, Land OLakes Republican Richard Corcoran, Browns district would no longer include the city of Sanford it would instead pick up more of Putnam and Marion counties. All of Seminole County, which includes Sanford, would be included in Congressional District 7, now held by Republican Congressman John Mica, while the changes would force Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis District 6 to pick up more of Volusia County. The plan released by GOP leaders differs significantly from a proposal by two votingrights groups that were among those challenging the current map in court. Those groups wanted Browns district to instead run from Jacksonville in the east to Gadsden County in the west. Slight alterations will not correct the constitutional defects Judge Lewis identied, wrote Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, and Peter Butzin, chairman of Common Cause Florida, in a letter Thursday to legislative leaders. The snaking north-south con guration of CD 5 should be abandoned. In a marked departure from the norm, the fourth oor of the Capitol appeared abandoned before, during and after discussions regarding the districts. Usually during session, the area between the House and Senate chambers is crowded with lobbyists. The absence of Capitol insiders may be because Galvano and Corcoran issued a gag order for staffers, an apparent reaction to revelations during the trial about secret meetings, map-swapping and email exchanges between legislative aides and GOP consultants. Lewis decided that the political consultants manipulated the process that led to the tainted maps in what he called a mockery of the antigerrymandering Fair Districts constitutional amendments. Galvano, in a memo, warned staff to refrain from discussing their map-drawing efforts with anyone outside of the Legislature except our legal counsel and not to share their work product with any outside interests in advance of the public release of the remedial plan. Corcoran was even more pointed in his directive. House Redistricting Committee staff have been informed that they are to have no interactions with any member of Congress, Congressional staffer or aide, or with any political consultant, Corcoran wrote. If any member of the House suggests to Redistricting Committee staff that a plan be changed with an intent to favor or disfavor any incumbent or political party, staff should disregard the suggestion entirely and report the conversation directly to me. GOING GREEN WHILE SLINGING MUD Campaigning had to take a backseat for a few days this month for incumbent legislators, but theres been no reprieve for Scott and Crist. Scott on Monday rolled out a $1 billion environmental blueprint for Florida, the latest piece of his re-election platform. The governors proposal includes investing $50 million a year for alternative watersupply projects and another $50 million a year for natural springs restoration. Scotts plan calls for increased penalties on polluters, a new position in the governors of ce focused on efforts to move water south through the Everglades rather than east and west, commitments to protect the Florida Keys and Apalachicola Bay, lobbying Congress to provide matching funds for South Florida water projects and $150 million-a-year for Florida Forever for items including land preservation. Democrats and Crist quickly blasted Scott who, within months of taking office in 2011, successfully pushed for the elimination of the Department of Community Affairs, the agency tasked with overseeing growth management --for what they called an election year gimmick. Scott has always been on the polluters side, Florida Democratic Party spokesman Joshua Karp said. Rick Scott campaigning on the environment is like the Grinch campaigning for Christmas. Crist never misses an opportunity to dis Scott for what he calls a dismal environmental record. But this week Republicans slugged back. The state GOP released a web ad docking Crist for taking a ride to a campaign event in which he bragged about his green credentials on a private plane owned by developer James Finch, owner of a construction company ned at least twice for violating environmental regulations. The ght over whos the larger land lover comes amid buzz about billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyers selection of Florida as one of seven states in which hes planning to spend up to a reported $10 million to back climate-change politicos like Crist. Steyer, founder of San Francisco-based NextGen, dropped $750,000 into a Florida political committee backing Crist, who took a lot of heat from Republicans for holding a climate-change summit during his tenure as Floridas GOP governor. In a break from dueling over the green, Crist this week released details of his campaign platform, announcing tuition-loan forgiveness and re nancing programs as part of a middle class jobs and opportunity plan. The proposal features a number of education-related proposals as well as several previously discussed ideas, such as increasing the minimum wage and expanding access to health care. To ensure that everyone has a fair shot, Florida needs a governor who will invest in them, not just the big corporations, Crist, who ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2010 instead of seeking a second term as Republican governor, said in a prepared statement. Crist, whos lambasted Scott over past education-funding cuts and for failing to expand health care, dubbed his plan Fair Shot Florida. STORY OF THE WEEK: Lawmakers are meeting in a special session to draft a new congressional map after the 2012 plan was struck down by a Tallahassee judge. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: I think senators of both parties are fulfilling their constitutional responsibility and thats more important than running for election, its more important than me taking out the cat boxes for Vicky (Gaetz), its more important than fundraising or anything else that we might do. Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, on the special session dealing with redistricting.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Farewell summer, we hardly knew ye WHITES WINESMaintaining tradition in ChampagneBy DAVID WHITEDuring a recent visit to Gimonnets estate, the two of us were chatting about the growing popularity of Champagnes new wave producers. While those who are moving in the direction of single expressions single-vineyard wines from a single vintage are garnering lots of praise from writers and sommeliers, Gimonnet believes such wines are always less complex, less interesting, and less capable of aging. Fighting words. But if any winemaker has the credentials to make such an argument, its Didier Gimonnet. The Gimonnets have been growing grapes in Champagne since 1750 and making wine since 1935, when Didiers grandfather, Pierre, began bottling estate Champagne in Cuis, a village in the heart of the Cte des Blancs. Today, Didier and his brother, Olivier, farm 64 acres of vineyards, mostly split between the grand cru villages of Cramant and Chouilly and the premier cru village of Cuis. Almost all their grapes are Chardonnay, with their oldest fruit coming off vines planted in 1911. Their average vines are 40 years old. Meeting a winemaker at his home is always memorable. But spending time with Didier was truly remarkable, thanks largely to the fact that we met in the room where he remembers crawling on the oor as a toddler. From where we chatted, one can see almost all his familys plantings in Cuis. From that room, Didier was able to watch his grandfather and father tend to the vines each day. Gimonnet was one of the rst producers in the portfolio of Terry Thiese, the rabble-rousing wine importer who introduced America to grower Champagne. Since the dawn of global wine consumption, large producers like Moet & Chandon, Louis Roederer, and Veuve Clicquot have dominated the Champagne market. These companies purchase their grapes from thousands of growers across the region and blend their wines to deliver a consistent product each year. In 1997, Thiese began importing farmer fizz, or Champagne produced by the farmers who grow the grapes. His timing was perfect, as Americans were becoming interested in the source of their food. Growers in Thieses portfolio quickly became popular, with producers like Gimonnet, Pierre Peters, Chartogne-Taillet, and Vilmart & Cie landing in top restaurants and retailers across the country. Consumers appreciated the fact that these wines had personality and couldnt be found at the local corner store. Plus, growers offered a good value, as they didnt have the marketing expenses or bureaucratic bloat of large Champagne houses. Indeed, while growers accounted for just 0.62 percent of Americas Champagne market in 1997, they now account for nearly 5 percent of it. That percentage continues to rise. In many ways, Gimonnet was the perfect gateway grower for American consumers. Inspired by the traditions of Champagne, Didier has always been obsessed with blending. So in his search for balance, he looks to Cuis for freshness and Cramant and Chouilly for richness. He has never made a single-vineyard wine and promises he never will. Most people think grand cru is better than premier cru, he said. [But] the best wines are a blend of the best terroirs, regardless of classi cation. Didier also eschews oak, as he believes it overpowers Chardonnays delicacy. The resulting wines are elegant, always marked by pure fruit and fresh acid. For me, the consumer must salivate, he explained. You cant be tired to enjoy a wine. American oenophiles have had nearly two decades to wrap their heads around grower Champagne. So while theyll always love benchmark growers like Gimonnet, many are now turning their attention towards winemakers who approach Champagne as if its Burgundy. Gimonnet believes these producers are on the wrong track, as theyre ignoring some of Champagnes important traditions. I disagree. The wines from those pursuing a single expression folks like Olivier Collin, Cdric Bouchard, Jrme Prvost, and Frdric Savart are some of the most exciting in the world, in large part because theyre so distinctive.David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com.
