The lengthy discussion was layered with comments on the lack of traffic studies, Commissioner Jerry Moores investment and $885,000 payout for the property, a citizen petition to suspend the project, Kesslers meeting with DOT of cials, and background presented by Commissioner Ralph Thomas. Moore recused himself from voting on the item. Commissioners voted no 3-1. Kessler said the project would increase trafc in front of the school from 4,000 to 15,700 vehicles daily. He said he recently had a very frank meeting with DOT Secretary Ananth Prasad who, Kessler said, told him the agency needed a clear message from Wakulla County. But Commissioner Randy Merritt said DOT District Secretary Tommy Bar eld told him that in the meeting, Prasad said passing a resolution asking to pull the project off the ve-year plan means that it would not be funded at all. Kessler said, Well, I think what the secretary clearly said Ill quote it To hit the pause button. Commission Chair Richard Harden was unhappy with Kessler for meeting with DOT on his own. The meeting that you keep referring to, thats where you went up there on your own, without any board direction, and you tried to represent the county, Harden said. Kessler said, I certainly did not represent the county, Mr. Harden. I was very clear with the secretary, I was there as a sole commissioner, not representing the board. No, no, no. Its called freedom of speech by petition. Harden said Kessler tried to circumvent the wishes of the board. He added that a petition circulating had only ve names on it, out of 30,000 residents. Mike Morgan, owner of Mikes Paint and Body Shop at the location of the realignment, and David Damon, started a petition to temporarily suspend and reevaluate the plans. Kessler said because of the particular community and school leaders who signed it Sheriff Charlie Creel, Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce, and Wakulla High School Principal Mike Barwick, It shows the gravity of the situation. Turn to Page 3AProposed intersection generates controversySopchoppy dog taken from bedroom, eventually returned with cut and dyed hairStarting on Page 1B A doggie to dye fornews ewsThe Wakulla The WakullaBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net A thief in Sopchoppy has a heart, but not much talent for dog grooming. Sopchoppy resident Savanna Strickland was absolutely panicked when she came home on July 31 and found that her little dog Socka was missing from her bedroom. She had shut him in her bedroom before she left for work nearby, but left the back door unlocked. While she was away, someone had apparently entered the house, gone into her bedroom and taken her 5-year-old papillion. The dog-napper closed the door to her bedroom and disappeared. Savanna said she looked everywhere. I called my step mom, frantic, Savanna said. I cant nd Socka! It was horrible. I didnt know what could have happened to him if he was even still alive. It was really hard, because hes been my little baby boy. The dog was given to Savanna by a friend. Ive had him for ve years, Savanna said. Hes been my baby since I was 15. The toy spaniel papillion breed is characterized by fringed butter y ears and a uffy tail the appendages swathed with long strands of soft, wispy hair. Pure breeds do fetch a pretty penny. But Sockas sandybrown-and-white spots and silky accents are no more. When Socka was mysteriously returned on Aug. 19, he had been dyed black, with the hair cut from his ears and tail. While Socka was missing, Savanna and her step mom Lori plastered the Sopchoppy community with missing dog signage, and used social media to get the word out. They speculate that the person who took Socka might have sold him for quick cash, and maybe the new owners did not want him anymore upon realizing they had a hot dog. And perhaps the thief took him back and dyed and cut his hair, to disguise him. Or, maybe the thief just stole Socka out of meanness. The Stricklands said they have a pretty good idea of who did it thanks to tips from neighborhood kids, but it does not matter, Lori said, We got the dog back. You can tell he was very well taken care of. He had not lost weight. He was healthy. After a couple of weeks you think the worst. But I prayed God would deal with the heart of the person who had him. The family does not have much legal recourse anyway. We talked to a friend who is a deputy, Savanna said. He said we dont have any evidence. All we have is hearsay.See Page 5A ELECTION RESULTS: See Page 12A See Page 12A Brock, Cook and Daniels win school board seatsMoore beats Fults in Republican primaryWilliam Andrew Vincent ClarkDon Wayne Davis Sr. R.

Keith Gavin scores.KEN FIELDS/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIn the school board races, Verna Brock knocked off incumbent Ray Gray; Becky Cook kept her seat after being challenged by Chris Russell; and Jo Ann Daniels beat Donna Savary for the third seat up for vote. There was a turnout of only 30.7 percent in the election. In the District 1 School Board race, Brock won 2,823 votes to 2,728 for Gray, or 50.8 percent to 49.1 percent. Im really excited and a little surprised, Brock said of her win, noting that Gray had served 16 years on the school board. Both candidates spent much of election day outside the Wakulla Station precinct waving at voters. Brock joked that she and Gray were chatting like old-timers, leaning on their signs. We both ran very positive campaigns and we both planned to work together for schools, she said. Im glad for Ms. Verna, Gray said. Shell do a great job. Gray said the main intent is to make sure the focus on the children. Id like to say thanks for all the citizens support through the years, Gray said. In District 3, Cook won 3,115 votes to Russells 2,442 votes, or 56 percent to 43.9 percent. I just appreciate the con dence the voters have showed in me again, Cook said, and I look forward to another four years. Asked about the NICOLE ZEMABecky Cook smiles after she is announced as having won another term on the Wakulla County School Board. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netIncumbent Jerry Moore, District 4 county commissioner, still has his eye on November. Moore beat challenger Steve Fults by a mere 33 votes in the Aug. 26 Wakulla County Primary Election. Both candidates took a moment to talk about the campaign, and express gratitude to their supporters. Moore said, Our democracy is founded on the right to vote. Im thrilled with their choice. He thanked Fults for running, the voters who supported him, and his family.
Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 28, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net The Florida Elections Commission has rejected a complaint against county commission candidate Steve Cushman that claimed he falsely represented his military service. The elections commission found the complaint, led in July by citizen Larry Roberts, was legally insuf cient. This is a personal attack which I will be glad to extend evidence which would not shine favorable upon the credibility of all those in witness here if needed, Cushman said of the complaint Roberts cited several sources in his complaint against Cushman, including the March 27 issue of The Wakulla News in which Cushman announced his candidacy: Cushman attended the University of North Texas and joined the ROTC. He graduated with a degree in psychology, entered the Air Force and served for seven years until he took a voluntary disenrollment offered during the Clinton Administration. He remained on standby until he turned 35. Cushmans record with the Air Reserve Personnel Center says: Steven Cushman served in the Air Force Reserves from Aug. 24, 1989, to Aug. 21, 1990. His rank was an Airman First Class. Because the information was provided with the evidence, the elections commission deemed the complaint legally insuf cient. In a response letter to the Florida Election Commission, Cushman wrote: Mr. Roberts seems to have taken issue with the fact that a newspaper article stating I was an Air Force Pilot even exists. Regardless of his belief, I piloted many planes owned by the United States Air Force. He supplied a Facebook screenshot of me standing beside a T-38 trainer which I ew as well. I would not assert the U.S. Air Force has a habit of letting civilians onto cases to conduct photo ops next to 18 million dollar aircraft, I will simply let the picture stand on its own merit. In a response to the complaint dismissal, Roberts said, A candidate can spend a little less than one year in the ROTC at the University of North Texas, leave as an airman, tell people he was an Air Force pilot who served seven years, and tell people he taught F-16 pilots, and thats OK with Florida law. It seems like candidates break the law only if they say there were in the military and they werent. Roberts said he believes the state election laws should be stronger.Election complaint against candidate is rejectedBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net Robyn Drummonds life is a story that has seemed to start and end up on the same page. The new Wakulla County Public Library services director grew up spending her days at the library in Sylvester, Ga., where her grandmother was the head librarian. It was in libraries where Drummond cultivated her passion for fantasy novels, started her education and career, and now facilitates the love of reading and research in patrons of all ages. Drummond moved from Thomasville, Ga., where she worked in the library at Thomas University. My library experience comes from the academic sector, she said. Its been an easy transition so far. Ive always been a little more interested in public libraries, because there have always been so many more services you can offer. In an academic environment, the services are more research based. So, Drummond is on top of things when local patrons stop by for genealogical research. I feel like its prepared me a little bit to help them, she said. But its a completely different sector. Its much more enjoyable in a way, because most of the people who come in here are reading for pleasure. They arent coming in here, saying, Ive got to prepare for this test, or I have to write this 20-page research paper. Youre used to having students coming in panicked, and as much I enjoyed being able to relieve that panic, its so much nicer to have people come in say, Oh, have you read this book? ... Thats been the main transition the difference in research reading, than reading for pleasure. Drummond has lived in Wakulla County since October. She and her husband Brandon were married Aug. 9, As Brandon and I were dating, wed been coming down with the kids, and we just all fell in love with it, Drummond said. We camp a lot, we hike a lot, we like to take the canoes out on the river. Thats one thing that really drew us in down here. The Drummonds have three sons altogether, ages 10, 13 and 14. Her oldest is a freshman at Wakulla High School, on the JV football team, and a member of ROTC. And theyre both also in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts here, she said. They keep us busy, thats for sure. But before making her home in Wakulla County, Drummond said she has lived all over the place. I was raised in the South, is all I can really tell you, Drummond said. We lived in Georgia, Alabama and Florida growing up. We moved around a lot. She graduated high school in Sylvester, Ga.; earned her bachelors from Thomas University; graduated from Valdosta State University with a Masters in Library and Information Science; and went back to TU to earn her Masters in Business Administration in 2012. I grew up in the library, Drummond said. I fell in love with books at a very young age. Hearing little voices is another contrast to her academic library experience. I can hear their little squeals and hear them laugh, Drummond said. When you walk over to the childrens section, and theres a cute little 3 year old picking through all of the animal books, saying, Oh dad, look at this thats what makes it great. That you de nitely dont get that in the academic library. Drummond said she is beyond impressed with the summer and childrens programs offered at the public library. I am absolutely amazed at our two part-time workers Leilania and Molly, who work with our childrens programming, she said. They have their act together. They know what theyre doing. We are so blessed to have them.Turn to Page 5A Robyn Drummond is new county librarian NICOLE ZEMANew Wakulla Library Director Robyn Drummond Complete Medical Care. Here in Wakulla.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 28, 2014 Page 3A Please Recycle PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. From Front PageThomas said he is not in love with the intersection, and, Im OK with hitting the pause button. Im OK with scrapping the whole idea The point is the sheriff and superintendent of schools do not need you or the board to intervene of their behalf. Merritt said regarding who signed the petition, he talked to the superintendent and the sheriff himself, and said, I dont think theyre going to have a problem with the way Im going to vote tonight, lets just leave it at that. Kessler said the crux of the matter is the absence of a safety study, and the safety of WHS students. Commissioner Randy Merritt asked County Administrator David Edwards if safety of the high school kids is the top priority of this project. Edwards said yes. Kessler asked how could one say that without a safety study. My daughters going to go to school there, Howard, Merritt said. Why do I need a safety study to say I want her to be able to cross the street with a stop light? During commissioner discussion, Merritt said, You dont do a study on an intersection thats not there. There are safety standards for school zone design. Merritt presented diagrams of intersection scenarios, and said either do nothing, or go with the best option that DOT has presented. (DOT) is not going to postpone this project, and leave the money there, Merritt said. If we turn this project down, its never going to get done. And I guarantee they are not going to fund the rest of 319, because theyre going to say, What in the world is wrong with Wakulla County? They are going to second guess everything that we do. Kessler said, So, thats the threat. That wasnt the threat from the secretary of transportation though. He said Presard was surprised that there was no safety study done. Thomas read a 2012 letter from former Superintendent David Miller outlining the need for the project. He read another 2012 letter of recommendation for the realignment from former Sheriff Donnie Crum. Thomas presented DOT meetings from 2006 with area property owners; 2007 meetings with Wakulla County Schools leadership and board members; a meeting with former Commissioner Ed Brimner, and more. And you said the commission would look at the issue, Thomas said. Did you nod off and not bring it back between 2006 and now? I just want to make sure were not making the public think this thing just cropped up over night. Kessler said the issue with DOT back then had everything to do with school bus transportation problems, not students. Fifteen citizens lled out speaker cards for opportunity to weigh-in on the issue. Bill Anderson talked about the engineers estimate of the $420,000 cost to the county to relocate the utilities there. Damon added that the realignment means Sopchoppy will also incur a big bill to relocate their water infrastructure. Later in the meeting, Edwards said its not clear if there will be any charge for the infrastructure relocation, noting a recent email from DOT that a review is underway on updated legislation regarding utility relocation charges. Charles Hickman said, The Moore Intersection as it is now being referred to is a farce. In 2007, Commissioner Moore offered his land to the State of Florida, free. Then the property, 2.6 acres, was evaluated at fair market value of $142,000. He settled for $850,000, round-about. Bill Russell said this should not be about politics, but safety, and it should be the schools problem. Russell suggested implementing a school crossing guard, because the intersection works like it is. But, he also voiced concern that telling DOT to stop the project might hurt the county, when other projects are needed in the future. Damon said to be clear, This is not saying to take the money away. Its saying to hit the pause button If you want to ignore (the superintendent and sheriff), and plow on ahead with this with no information, you go right ahead and do it tonight, Damon said. Weve seen it before. Morgan said even though there is not a safety problem now, there will be if that intersection gets built. He said in his opinion, DOT was mislead by those who want the project. All they are trying to do now is put the pause button on it, and stop it, slow it down, and go back and look at it again, Morgan said. Maybe we can re-do it so its safe for everybody. Bob Danzey and Tim Caldwell offered two different citizen opinions. Danzey said it seems like capitalism is being attacked, and that Moore simply bought the property in the path of development, and made a pro t. Caldwell said the issue has turned into a Jerry Moore witch-hunt. Its pitiful that hes being hung up and crucified for making money like everyones supposed to do in this country, and are free to do.Proposed intersection generates controversy Notice of Public Hearings The Wakulla County Planning Commission and Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners proposes to consider the following application and/ or adopt the following by ordinance and has scheduled Public Hearings before the Wakulla County Planning Commission on Monday, September 15, 2014, beginning at 7:00 P.M. and before the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners on Monday, October 6, 2014 and Monday, November 3, 2014, beginning at 6:00 PM, or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard.

This letter summarizes my feelings and potential inability to further enjoy, in a very small way, the beauty of the bays of Wakulla County. Having read this, I hope the citizens vote NO on the referendum to reinstate the 75-foot wetlands setback. I and many other citizens who had good intentions in purchasing property in this area will not stand to lose almost everything. I am a member of the Nature Conservancy and totally support our reasonable usage of such beautiful areas as in Wakulla County. For that same reason I also enjoy my time in Carrabelle and Cape San Blas. I totally support limitation of growth and preservation of the wetlands but I think the extension of this boundary, which was originally 35 feet as established by the State of Florida, to 75 feet is far too aggressive and impairs the potential growth and sustainable use of the beautiful shoreline. It also seems like many of the backers of the increased setback on the wetlands already have property in the area and it serves to protect their self-serving interests.Thomas W. Schoborg, M.D.Urologist and potential resident of PanaceaCommissioners: I have been going to your lovely area now for more than 20 years and purchased my rst property in Wakulla County in 2005 for $110,000. I convinced my friend, Celso Santucci, to purchase the property with me and we formed S&S Enterprises. Now that we are of retirement age and pursing the possibility of building on our lots on Chattahoochee Avenue, I have found out that the wetlands setback line has been changed from 35 feet to 75 feet, making our lots virtually unbuildable. Not only have we been depressed over the rapid decline of the real estate value, but now we may not even be able to build or sell the property. We bought this property cash out of our retirement funds and cannot even walk away from it, leaving it with the banks as so many of our friends have done. Please consider our request to repeal the setback of the buffer. Thomas W. Schoborg AtlantaBy BRUCE ASHLEYOn Aug. 7, the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth held its fourth annual community dialog event at the One Stop Community Center. This years event focused on the choices our youth face. The event brought together more than 100 people to learn about real trends in our county affecting our youth, share experiences, and exchange thoughts and ideas about issues and in uences our youth are confronted with when making choices that could have a lasting impact on their lives. The Wakulla Sheriffs Office, School District and school staff and administrators, county Health Department professionals, DISC Village, Department of Juvenile Justice, elected of cials, candidates for office, intervention, prevention, and counseling professionals all participated. A little bit about the data presented at the Buzz Talk is in order. Every two years a survey of all sixth through twelfth grade students in Wakulla County is conducted. The immediate past survey, taken in 2012, was used in our Talk. This survey, scheduled to be held again this year, is conducted by the Florida Department of Children and Families and is known as the Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey. The 2012 Wakulla Report is a 27-page document of tables containing the actual survey responses about substance use from students ages 10 to 20 attending Wakulla schools in grades six through 12. The entire survey from 2012 can be found on-line at http://myflfamilies. com/service-programs/ substance-abuse/fysas, or just Google Florida youth substance abuse survey. The 2012 survey addressed specific areas including demographics, reported use of various drugs including alcohol and tobacco (ever and in the last 30 days), delinquent and bullying behavior, gang behavior and af liation, participation is extracurricular activity, risk factor and protective factor prevalence. Laws and norms, perceived availability of drugs and alcohol, family con ict, management and attitudes about certain behaviors, perceived risks and harms, and early initiation are some of the areas reported as risk and protective factors. Data presented included domestic and youth violence, threatened suicide, attempted suicide (Baker Acts), bullying, sexually transmitted diseases, youth in the justice system and others. A group of extraordinary Wakulla youth presented their own personal journey of success and choices they faced reaching goals. Not all took the same paths reaching these goals. Some made choices that took them to different places before nding the good place they are in now. They echoed the influences reported in the FYSAS. The Buzz Talk was a great success because of the participation by those in attendance. The event promoted a higher level of awareness and knowledge of issues our youth face. The messages and in uences our youth are faced with are many and complex in todays society and culture. Many of these messages and in uences con ict and compete. It is more important today that we be engaged, as a community to help our youth with the choices they face. There are many wonderful aspects that make Wakulla County a better community to live and grow up in than many others. But we cannot be lulled into thinking that some of the issues and choices youth face in other places are not shared by youth in our community. Some can be life changing, some are can be life ending. Any number of our youth are negatively impacted by these issues, we must seek to address and combat them. Every child needs at least one trusted person to confide in that can help them make good, healthy choices. The Community Buzz Talk demonstrated we are a united community, with folks from many disciplines and positions of care working together for the betterment of our children. Thank you to all who participated and contributed. Continuing the TALK will truly lead to our youth making good choices. Bruce Ashley is president of the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth. In the article last week about the school board candidates, Candidates share views at forum, Chris Russells reference to the special election under the what motivates you question was incorrectly quoted: Russell said the special election cost $37,000, not $77,000. We regret the error. In the story Wakullas youth the focus of town hall meeting, it was reported that Bruce Ashley is a lieutenant in the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce. He has resigned from the sheriffs of ce. Because of a production problem, in the story New water meters to be installed in Sopchoppy dropped a paragraph, which should have read: An application will be submitted for a $50,000 Florida Recreation Development grant, that will cover infrastructure costs for the new Sopchoppy Park. The Senior Citizens Thrift Shop located at the future city park was moved next to City Hall, and its former trailer will be junked.

Editor, The News: Last Saturday in Crawfordville 150 people heard why protecting our wetlands is vital. The occasion was Our Water: Our Future with John Moran, Springs Eternal Project and Bob Knight, Florida Springs Institute, both in Gainesville. We learned that protecting springs has to do with the economy. If we leave things as they are, according to Knight, the cost to clean up nitrates that are killing our waters will be huge. After the Saturday program I attended, I say it will be prohibitive. We cannot afford to clean up the mess we are creating. Then, by extension, our economic dream of tourism coming to our rescue in Wakulla County will go down the drain as well. Dont blame it all on local of cials, developers and greedy politicians. Instead, look at the increase in population here and elsewhere. How do we deal with the outfall of that? I wanted to tell the audience Saturday that there are 80 plus sinkholes within Wakulla Springs State Park. And do people living in Wakulla county know there must be more than 1,000 county wide? We surely appreciate all the cool, shady and life-giving wetlands in this summer heat, right? Do people know that nitrate effects are like cholesterol? Easier to control before it is too high, lethal if it clogs up our arteries. Same with nitrates. Lethal chemicals in the water which kill all life except algae, slimy green and undesirable in a swimming area. What can be done? Abstinence might work. Just do not apply fertilizer to your lawns, they will live. Just do not diminish the life-giving buffers around wetlands that can lter pollutants. Seems so simple. And I am optimistic that Wakulla County will once again turn to understanding the great harm to our children and grandchildren that a short-sighted economic impact boost might bring from development by people who shut a blind eye to the already evident disaster. Wakulla is working on its sewer treatment plant. It, too, has a spray eld. Why not investigate a constructed wetland solution to treat the waste water? It is a cheaper solution to removing nitrates and it can become a tourist destination as witnessed in other parts of Florida. Or voters in Wakulla can retain our forward-looking wetlands protection ordinance the commissioners abolished. The issue is as critical as are lifepreserving buffers. Madeleine H. CarrFriends of Wakulla Springs State Park

Its a homey suite, with a decorative rug and soft lamp lighting. Drummond said the puzzle room is an ideal place where community members can come to a quiet place and take a break. And Id like to add some to our graphic novel collection, Drummond said. I dont know quite what our readership is here yet. But, thats something that I am interested in working on developing. My children both love graphic novels, and I love graphic novels. Drummond said the childrens area is great, and she is working on some ideas to make it outstanding, saying: I have ideas to pull into play to freshen up our childrens area, and just make it new and little more playful and inviting for them. However, Drummond said the library seems to be functioning well, thanks for prior leadership and a superb staff. When I was interviewing for the job, one thing I was very impressed with when I looked on the website was the amount of technology classes we offer, she said. Drummond said she was nervous about jumping into the role, since former Library Services Director Scott Joyner took a new job at a branch in Tallahassee. But the staff here is so good, she said. They know what theyre doing. They have been so warm and welcoming, and taken me under their wing from the transition. That has made it so easy to come in and feel like I belong. Fantasy novels top Drummonds list of mustread genres, and she is willing to talk about the Christopher Paolini series, or the great J.R.R. Tolkien, with anyone. Ive always loved fantasy from a very young age, she said. I think I read The Hobbit for the rst time when I was 9 or 10 years old. Always loved fantasy a good wellwritten, wordy fantasy. Drummond said she also enjoys gardening, and her free time is lled up staying active with the boys. Every morning I get up, and think, how did I get here? she said. Because this is exactly where I feel like I am supposed to be.Robyn Drummond is new county librarianFrom the Front PageLori said, (The thief) didnt have to bring him back.

SNYDERThe Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly finally exercised our right to a vacation and planned for a whole week to spend with our son and his family. Preparing for a week vacation takes about six weeks prior to the vacation and then six weeks after the vacation to get caught up. I do not know how people take vacations all the time. It was to be a great week of relaxing and spending time with our son and his family in the state of Ohio. Ohio is remarkable for a lot of things but when my wife and I think of Ohio we think of one thing: our grandchildren. Someone once remarked that grandchildren was Gods way of apologizing for our children. Maybe that is so, I do not know. If so, I gladly accept His apology. All I know is it is wonderful to spend time with grandchildren. The important thing about being a grandparent is discovering the skills necessary to adequately spoil your grandchildren within a weeks time frame. Revenge is sweet and wonderful. It was about the middle of the week and my wife and I were sitting outside enjoying the cool weather. All of the grandchildren had been snuggled down into their beds for the night. It certainly is tiring to spend the day with grandchildren who have no shortage of energy and whose tongue is a well oiled machine and does not know how to be quiet. Our ears were still tingling from the days childish verbiage extravaganza. We were sitting in the backyard sipping some hot coffee, enjoying the quiet evening when I heard this buzzing sound on the left side of my head. Automatically my hand swatted in that area and I went on drinking my coffee as though nothing had happened. I thought perhaps the kids were still up or maybe it was a ashback from the afternoon. My wife looked at me as though something weird happened, but we continued enjoying the evening atmosphere with only the soothing sounds of sipping coffee. Then I heard the buzzing sound again. This time it was on the other side of my head and as I swatted I began to realize what was happening. All of the bugs in the state of Ohio had received a memo that I was vacationing in the state. In well organized shifts they began the welcoming process. Within a short time I was swatting bugs with both hands. I know I am a sweet person, but this was becoming ridiculous. I would like to retain my sweetness for something other than bugs. I am not quite sure how many bug bites I received that night, I stopped counting at 2,973,442 bites. I am not quite certain, but it was feeling more like it had exceeded 3 million bites. If I had a penny for every bug bite I would buy some very expensive bug repellent. Is it a crime to murder a bug that has bitten me so many times? Of course the real question is, is it really murder? Could it be considered a mercy killing? And if it is murder, what is the penalty for murdering a bug? I was at the point that I would gladly have paid handsomely for the privilege of putting some bugs to rest. As a spiritually minded person, I wondered if bugs go to heaven when they die? If they go to heaven, do they continue to bite? And, would it be proper for an angel to swat a bug in heaven? The mood I was in, after being bitten so many times by these lousy bugs, I had an opposite destination in mind. Since they like fire so much and are attracted to it, I would be glad to accommodate them. I know a place that would t the situation quite well. After two hours of fighting these stinking bugs, my sanity, as fragile as it is, was on the brink of collapsing. Once my sanity collapses I am not responsible for what I will do or say. It was hard to nd a place on my body one nger wide where a bug had not tasted the delicacy of my sweet skin. One question I re ected on was simply, what did the bugs do before I arrived? Did they save up all their energy for when I would come and visit? This is not the kind of celebrity status I am seeking. My preference is to be anonymous to all the bugs in Ohio. All of these insects, whatever they were, were simply bugging me to death. When I regained some composure, I thought about what it must have been like for Jesus to come into this world. The writer of Hebrews puts it this way, So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation (Hebrews 9:28). So many things in this world bug me, but I have something greater to look forward to, a place called heaven..The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Gene Farley Ester Hartsfield Gueltzow Terry Lee Long Tonya Yvette McDonald Laveda R. Hodge Raker Winona Council Royer Myers Don Wayne Davis Sr.By TRACY RENEE LEEMy client today wanted to see his mother. I had just picked her up from the hospital, she was not yet embalmed, nor was she ready to be viewed. She was still in her hospital gown, lying on my stainless steel table. This was not the proper time, nor the proper way, for a loving son to see his mother. I understood his need. Family members often ask to see the bodies of their departed loved ones before appropriate preparations have taken place. It is a dif cult moment for the funeral director. Unfortunately, we must postpone their wishes until appropriate preparations have been accomplished. Our duty is to present a death image that will promote healthy healing rather than hamper it. Often times, such a request is issued because the survivor was not present at the time of death. This particular request, however, was issued due to unnished business. This loving son, a man in his 50s, had let his mother slip away without taking the time to visit her during the illness that took her life. His carefree lifestyle and lack of responsibility will now plague him with guilt and complications, in healing from his mothers death. In this type of situation, the survivor feels that if they can see their departed loved one, they can make things right. This is unfortunately not true. Regrettably, this bereaved son will spend a great amount of time trying to recover from his lack of sound judgment and irresponsible behavior during the nal days of his mothers life. I wish I had a cure for his pain; I do not. To avoid such pain in your own life, prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you have a loved one who is ill, please call them. Go by and check up on them. Express your love, appreciation and dedication before they slip away and the opportunity eludes you. Unfortunately, I see all too often, families that forget to say those three important words, I love you.Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer.

The Summer Challenges gave gifted and talented students in the consortiumserved small and rural districts opportunities to explore STEM content in depth, collaboratively problem solve and conduct investigations, enhance leadership skills and learn about STEM careers. STEM Scholars from Gadsden, Liberty, Taylor, and Wakulla Counties participated in a four-day STEM experience, STEMulation Robotics Challenge, at Florida State University in Tallahassee. FSU Panama Citys STEM Institute Director, Ginger Littleton led the team of educators that presented a series of challenges for the students. Collaborating as a team, students sought solutions to real world tasks in computer programming, electronics, and chemistry. In the computer programming section students learned to plan, design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORM robots to perform various tasks and maneuvers in order to conquer a series of robotics challenges. During forensics students used chemistry skills to identify unknown samples found at a crime scene. The electronics section enabled students to use simple circuits to construct working LED lights and program an alarm system. This engagement in a series of authentic STEM research experiences provided students with valuable information about potential STEM career opportunities as they worked as a research team to creatively solve real world problems. Special to The NewsPre-K, elementary, middle and high school teachers can grow their project budgets for their classrooms by teaching their students about agriculture.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 28, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy MARJ LAWA few months ago, I bought a bicycle. My thinking was that riding a bicycle would be the beginning of a healthier, stronger, and bettertoned lifestyle. After all, when we were kids, we lived on bicycles. So, it was just a matter of jumping on and pedaling a few miles each day. I walked the bike to the sidewalk and sat. Yep, felt like old times. I pushed with one leg, then the other. Only the other leg, the one with the fake hip, couldnt push hard. The bike teetered. I ew off, thinking: Fall on the good side! Fall on the good side! and ended up in the neighbors owerbed with the bike on top of me. Looking up, there was the audience, full of smiles. Of course, wouldnt you know, the neighbor, her husband and son were rocking on their porch. The grins turned to concern when they realized the advanced years of the old trout with her face in the tulips. Who said, You never forget how to ride a bike? And the same is true of shooting handguns, trap guns or any other gun. Muscle memory is a thing of the past if you dont practice your skills. Women who meet at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce range on Wednesday mornings have found this to be true. During the fall, winter and early spring, attendance on Wednesday mornings is quite good. Between nine and 16 women at a time will congregate, learn about each others weapons, socialize, and shoot their own handguns. Since we were at the range every week, we got pretty good at hitting our targets and taking out the x-rings. However, during the hot, hot summer, attendance gets sparse. Maybe ve to eight women will brave the humidity and heat. Some will have stayed away for several weeks. Then they return and realize their shooting has lost a lot of its accuracy. Muscle memory vastly improves with regular practice, and conversely, degrades without it. Ive decided that since a de nition of a verb is a state of being, then the word ustacould is a verb of the state of having been. When you say you ustacould shoot out the x-ring, its time to visit the range more often!?Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWithout practice, muscle memory can become muscle amnesia HOME ON THE RANGE www.WakullaDiving.com Wakulla Diving Center, Inc.

What they thought was a shark stealing their bait turned out to be this big boy. After a long ght and a little help from dad, she reeled him in. From FWC NewsThe recreational harvest season for Floridas premier game sh, snook, opens Sept. 1 statewide. Unique to the region, snook are one of the many reasons Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World. While the shery is already more than 90 percent catch-and-release, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission encourages anglers to continue to use moderation when determining whether or not to take a snook home. Gulf snook populations were negatively impacted by a 2010 cold kill. Gulf snook numbers currently exceed FWC management goals but are still rebuilding to pre-cold-kill levels, which is one of the reasons why it is important to handle sh with care in this region and use moderation when determining whether or not to harvest one. Regular season closures are designed to help protect the species during vulnerable times such as cold weather and spawning. Snook are closed to harvest Dec. 1 through the end of February and May 1 through Aug. 31 in Gulf state and federal waters, including Monroe County and Everglades National Park. Management measures such as the onefish-per-person, perday bag limit, annual closed seasons and size limits will help continue rebuilding snook populations on both coasts. Minimum and maximum size limits help protect juvenile and older breeding fish within the population. In the Gulf, they must be not less than 28 inches and not more than 33 inches total length. A snook permit as well as a recreational saltwater license is required unless the angler is exempt from having a license. Snook may be targeted or harvested with hook and line gear only. Snagging is prohibited. It is illegal to buy or sell snook. Anglers can report their catch on the Snook & Gamefish Foundations website at SnookFoundation. org by clicking on the Angler Action link. Researchers also ask anglers who harvest the sh to save their lleted carcasses and provide them to the FWC by dropping them off at a participating bait and tackle store. For the county-by-county list, go to MyFWC. com/Research and click on Saltwater, then Snook (under Saltwater Fish) and Snook Anglers Asked to Help with Research. These carcasses provide biological data, including the size, age, maturity and sex of the catch. This information is important to the FWC in completing stock assessments on species such as snook. Visit MyFWC.com for more information on snook. What a catch What a catch Well Armed Woman group forms in Wakulla CountySPECIAL TO THE NEWSMembers of Well Armed Woman group at the shooting range. Limited harvest starts Sept. 1 for snook statewideFrom FWC NewsFlorida is known as a tourist-friendly state, but starting Aug. 1, one visitor will no longer be welcome: the invasive lion sh. Introduced into Florida waters in the late 1980s, lion sh populations have boomed in recent years, negatively impacting native wildlife and habitat. Several management changes go into effect Aug. 1 that will help the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission combat the growing problem by making it easier for lion sh hunters to remove the spiny predators and limiting further introduction of the species. Changes include: Prohibiting the importation of live lionsh; Allowing lionfish to be removed via spear shing when diving with a rebreather, a device that recycles air and allows divers to remain in the water for longer periods of time (currently, you cannot spear any sh when using a rebreather); and Allowing participants of approved tournaments and other organized events to spear lion sh or other invasive species in areas where spearfishing is not currently allowed (such as certain state parks or refuges). This will be done through a permitting system. Report a sighting by downloading the new Report Florida Lion sh app on a smart device or by visiting MyFWC. com.Imported lion sh not welcome
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 28, 2014 Page 11A Four members from Flotilla 12 traveled down to Orlando this past weekend for the National Convention (NACON) for the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Raye Crews, Norma Hill, Phil Hill and Fran Keating were joined by our Division Commander Eric DeVuyst and Division Staff Ofcers Bill and Ellena Roland. Also present form our division was Patti Fritchie, Deputy Directorate of Public Affairs, which is a national level position. Several opportunities were available for attendees. Phil and Norma Hill attended ICS 400: Advanced Incident Command System, a course that focuses on emergency management and response. In the event of an emergency, it is critical that all organizations are able to work together to best respond. In addition, all in attendance were able to network with others and re-connect with individuals from past trainings. This is critical to the continued success of the Auxiliary as we are a small but mighty force! Members from Flotilla 12 and Division 1 spent time talking to a member from Alabama who had come to attend crew training. The closing banquet was well attended and a chance for many to socialize and be recognized for their accomplishments. Admiral Paul Zukunst, Commandant on the USCG gave the banquet speech. During this time, the significance of The Missing Man Table was discussed. For those of you who are unaware, a table is set, but remains empty to honor those service men and women who never returned. The table is round to show our everlasting concern for our missing men. The tablecloth is white, symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call to duty. The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and the loved ones and friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting answers. The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of our continued determination to account for our missing. A slice of lemon on the bread plate is to remind us of the bitter fate of those captured and missing in a foreign land. A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those missing and their families who seek answers. The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God. The glass is inverted to symbolize their inability to share this evenings toast. The chairs are empty, they are missing.

Our summer began very slowly this year. Every year seems different. Two years ago the summer season began in March and carried strong with a good Scallop crop and clean water off shore through August. This year with all the rain, the water quality off shore was poor early on, holding folks back until July. Fishing has been good ever since. Spear shing boats that frequent our facility report ful lling their limits quickly and often in relatively shallow water. Lion sh are on the increase west of Dog Island, but not so eastward into Apalachee Bay. Both times I had a chance to get off shore this season, I caught plenty of sh in our toasty 86-87 degree water, and never saw a Lion sh. But experience has taught us over the past 5 years that the crowd will collapse after Labor Day, from our average of 15-20 down to less than 5 per day. I can understand that with the start of school, parents are preoccupied with tighter schedules, new structured activities such as after school games, theater, and setting good homework ethics, and ramping up to hunting season. We know, since we continue working closely with the Wakulla Environmental Institute teaching TCCs Introduction to Professional Diving at FAMUs Aquatics Center beginning this week. And the Scallop season has been lackluster east of Lanark this summer. With improvements in availability, training and delivery of a healthier breathing gas known as Nitrox, folks are diving longer, deeper and returning to shore more refreshed than ever. I hear the frustration over limits on sh, the abundance of Goliath Grouper taking harvested fish, and those pesky sharks. But once the stories are told, most agree the thrill of the dive may keep folks diving later in this year. One patron of ours was involved in a dispute with a Goliath who took his speared sh, and the shaft, and his arm, all the way up to his head. The diver did get a bent shaft back, and his lacerated arm, but lost the sh to this demanding creature. He will be good as new in a few weeks and ready to back at it again. More and more folks are using the electronic Shark Shield which is keeping the aggressive sharks at bay as well. This Fall may be a new one for our local diving interests with a continued off shore emphasis (barring any unforeseen hurricanes). Alas however, I will be absent in September. With my wife Ann recently retired, we journey to Sitka, Alaska for an American Academy of Underwater Sciences meeting. As usual, we will drive there (as far as we can since Sitka is on an island). I leave Wakulla Diving Center in the capable hands of Travis, Dave, Dr. Hess and my visiting older brother for the month we will be gone. Dave will be developing dive destinations for the fall, working with local captains for periodic local dive trips. Travis will install the upgraded hydro testing facility such that we can manage industrial cylinders this fall. Dr. Hess will monitor the growing TCC course and my brother will enjoy talking ying with everyone. We may even retain some interns this fall! Now who will write my column when I am away? Phil Hill at Advanced Incident Command System training at the Coast Guard Auxiliary National Convention in Orlando.Special to The NewsIn honor of International Manatee Day, and to heighten public awareness about this endangered species, Save the Manatee Club reminds Floridians and visitors to the Sunshine State to watch out for manatees on the crowded waterways and also be equipped to help protect the slow-moving marine mammals. The Club produces free bright yellow waterproof boating banners with the message, Please Slow: Manatees Below. Displaying the banner helps alert other boaters to manatees in the area. Free shoreline property signs, weatherproof boat decals, and waterway cards that feature manatee protection tips in English, French, Spanish, and German, are available too. The Club also produces a family-friendly outdoor sign to teach the public manatee manners and help stop manatee harassment. The signs are distributed to state, municipal, and county parks, marinas, and other sites where human/manatee interaction can be a problem. We have a wide variety of programs, both in America and in other countries manatees inhabit, says Patrick Rose, Save the Manatee Clubs Executive Director.

From Front Pagecampaign, Cook smiled and said simply, It was different than any other year I ran. Russell was philosophical about the loss: Win or lose, he said, the voters win. He said that issues brought up by his campaign will have an impact on the school board. I dont think well see the school board trying to sneak in another special election, he said, adding he thought the school board would also focus on turning the school grades around. I congratulate her, Russell said. Shes served 20 years. I congratulate her for her effort. He added, though, People are paying attention and watching the school board now, and will hold them accountable. In the District 5 race, Daniels won 3,229 votes to 2,288 for Savary, or 58.5 percent to 41.4 percent. Daniels said she was excited to be elected. She expressed appreciation to Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells and his staff for working so hard. Daniels also thanked her friends and family for their support in her campaign. And I want to thank Donna Savary for running, Daniels said. In America, democracy works better if people have a choice. Tonight, Daniels said she plans to enjoy time with her grandkids, who were out waving signs with her all day, and relax my toes. Ive been on my feet from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., she said. I have blisters. Im going to soak my feet. Savary had no comment.From Front PageI think my opponent ran a good race, Moore said. And basically I would like to thank everybody who helped in my campaign. I would especially like to thank my wife for all the really hot days we spent out on the street working. Shes extremely important to my campaign. Moore said he is ready to keep the momentum going for the November election. I will serve with the best of ability and look forward to November, he said. Fults said he was feeling as well as to be expected after losing such a tight race. I dont know if theres anything else I could have done but spend more money, Fults said. I have to hand it to Jerry, he worked hard, particularly toward the end. Fults was quick to thank his supporters. There are so many people family, friends, who worked as hard as I have on this, he said. Its bittersweet for me. Either way, win or lose, its bittersweet. If you win, you have to run a whole other campaign. Its a grueling process and it consumes your life if you take it seriously. The bitter part is the loss, but the sweet part is, I have my life back. Its Gods will. I wish Jerry the very best. Fults said it will be interesting to see what happens in November with candidates Bill Anderson, Steve Cushman and Jerry Moore. He also re ected on all the Wakulla County voters he met going door to door. I made so many new friends, Fults said. Its very humbling to have people support you the way Ive been supported. Fults said he does not have to be elected to make a difference. Im still going to be an engaged citizen in Wakulla County, Fults said.Brock, Cook and Daniels win Moore beats Fults in primary LYNDA KINSEY NICOLE ZEMACandidate Chris Russell and wife Valerie and candidate Steve Fults wave at voters outside the Crawfordville precinct, above.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 28, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com The life of the average Norse seaman a millennium ago was no picnic. In those days of limited travel opportunities, they did visit a number of remote and isolated locales in search of lands to colonize or plunder. Their boats were built for withstanding the rigors of open ocean travel with storage for only the necessary tools and supplies required by the voyages objectives. There was little consideration for the crews comfort beyond the basics to sustain life and maintain some level of vigor for pillaging. The trips meal plan was as basic as the lodging accommodations. Whole grain bread and dried fish were the daily offering, but dried fruit might be available on special occasions. Given these facts, it is little wonder Leif Erikson made note of the plentiful grapes growing wild in a geographic region he aptly named Vineland. These were believed to be Vitis labrusca, sometimes called fox grape, which grow in present day Wakulla County. This grape species is common in the eastern half of North America, but North Florida is on the southern end of its growing range. It has the ability to produce berries in hot, humid summers and survive in snowy, cold winters. Fox grapes are commonly dark red, but white and pink skinned varieties exist. Wines produced from these grapes have strong, distinct avors. Unlike European grape cultivars and grapes shipped from California, these grapes are classified as slip-skinned. This can be a new experience for anyone who has used only grocery stores to procure their grapes. When ripe, the berry will easily detach from the vine. If squeezed between the fingers, the interior of the grape will pop out of the skins stem-end and retain its globular shape. The novelty of these fresh grapes and their potential for new wine products resulted in plant shipment to Europes wine growing region. It was a good idea with bad results. The shipped plants harbored an insect called the Grape Phylloxera. These tiny insects aggressively feed on the roots and leaves of grape plants. The common European wine grape species, Vitis vinifera, had no resistance to this insect. The microscopic pest caused widespread destruction to Europes grape and wine production area when the insect populations ourished. The American fox grape has several natural defenses against this pale yellow sap sucking bug. The roots produce a sticky sap which repels the nymph stage Phylloxera, and the plants quickly produce protective tissue to cover wounds and prevent bacterial or fungal infections. Another native Wakulla County wild grape species, Vitis vulpina, is sometimes identified as the fox grape, but is also called the frost grape or winter grape. The ripening tiny purple grapes are tart, but sweeten after exposure to cold weather. This cultivar is long lived with a moderate growth rate. They are dormant during winter losing their leaves, but retaining the dried grapes or raisins. While Vitis vulpina has been used in folk medicine, it also has served as a source of wildlife food. Possibly even foxes will sample the raisins during winter with its sparse food supplies. No doubt Norse seamen of old and todays hungry foxes each appreciate the tasty offerings of native grapes.

While it was hot on the Chiles football field in Tallahassee for the preseason classic game against Chiles and Thomas County, Ga., Central High School, at least there was a slight breeze to stir the air around. Coach Scott Klees was encouraged by getting all 78 varsity and junior varsity players some time on the eld. The team ran all their offensive plays and Klees said the coaches had something to look at for the season opener against Florida High on Friday. Wakulla played a 7-7 tie in the rst half against Thomas Central, and went down 13-8 against Chiles. THOMAS CENTRAL SCRIMMAGE The War Eagles looked a little sluggish and struggled to hold on to the ball, fumbling six times and losing four of them. The first string offense looked good on its rst possession after recovering a Yellowjacket fumble, with QB Feleipe Franks connecting with a leaping Keith Gavin on a corner pattern in the end zone for a touchdown. The extra point was good and the War Eagles were up 7-0. The game started getting sloppy with lots of fumbles, possibly because of the heat. In one series, Wakulla had driven the ball to the Yellowjacket 4, there was a fumble recovered by Thomas Central at the 11. On the next play, a Yellowjacket fumbled the ball and it was recovered by the Wakulla defense at the 2. On the next play, Wakulla fumbled and the ball was recovered by Thomas Central. Justin Davis looked sharp returning punts, and he took the punt from the Thomas Central end zone back to the 20. A couple of off passes, and then a Franks pass was picked off by a Yellowjacket. Thomas Central connected on a long pass play to reverse the eld, and the Yellowjackets scored with just 29 seconds left in the half. Showing great time management, the War Eagles drove the the Yellowjacket 30 and with just 2 seconds left, Franks tried a 47-yard long eld goal, but the ball sailed wide left. The scrimmage ended with a 7-7 tie. CHILES SCRIMMAGE After a break, some of Wakullas younger and JV players were in the game as the Timberwolves drew rst blood with 4:30 remaining in the third to go up 7-0. Sebastian Garner, a junior, had a 50 yard run, followed by a 30yard pass completion from backup quarterback Bucky McGlammery for a score. Then Garner ran in the 2-point play to go up 8-7. Chiles battled back, driving the field to score a touchdown with about 6:30 remaining. The extra point was no good. Final score of the scrimmage against Chiles was 13-8. By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netLast year was a tough year for the Wakulla War Eagles and Coach Scott Klees. The War Eagles played one of the 50 toughest schedules in the nation, facing nine of 10 teams that went to the playoffs and going 8-2, losing only to district rivals Godby and Rickards. Unfortunately, that kept Wakulla from going to the playoffs for the rst time in Klees tenure as head coach. But the coach faced some personal challenges of his own: a cancer diagnosis and 10 inches of his colon cut out before the teams last game of last season. Klees had 21 or 22 staples, he doesnt remember. Most people are laid up for a week after the surgery, Klees was up after a day. Everythings ne, he says in an interview in his eld house of ce the day before the preseason game. I have blood work tomorrow Ill nd out then how well Im doing. Asked how he kept his health issues from becoming a distraction to last years team, he says: I didnt tell them until I had to. I told them later and they handled it well. Again, Klees says his 2014 War Eagles are playing one of the toughest schedules. For Klees, football is not just a game: Its a place where life lessons are taught to young men. Kids need to face adversity and overcome that, he says. We may not succeed every single time, but theyll be better able to get back up. This years team, with only eight seniors, is young, he says. The immaturity of the team is an issue, Klees says. Its not because of a lack of effort, they just havent been there yet... Its a growing process. We have a lot of juniors, a lot of sophomores, he says, on a varsity squad thats down to 38 players. He has two exceptional athletes on the team, both juniors, quarterback Feleipe Franks, who has already committed to LSU, and wide receiver Keith Gavin, who has already committed to FSU. Weve got em for two more years, Klees says. Despite the attention from Division I schools that the two have garnered, Klees says Franks and Gavin remain grounded. Besides their athleticism, Klees also praised both players for their leadership on the team. Keith is the most modest, humble young man, Klees says. Hes got something to prove this year after only playing two and a half games last year. Gavin was lost for the season after he broke his leg in the game against Taylor County. As for Franks, Our offense will play as well as he leads them to play, Klees says.

Seven of the War Eagle wins were against playoff team. Unfortunately, their two losses came to Godby and Rickards, the other two teams in their three-team district. Scott Klees enters his ninth season as head coach at Wakulla and the War Eagles return nine starters on defense and seven on offense. It will be a tough road to the playoffs again as District 2-5A was ranked 7th-toughest in the country by Max Preps. But expect Wakulla to use its experience and schedule from a year ago to get back to the postseason. Friday Night Football/Florida With arguably the best QB in the area in LSU-commit Feleipe Franks and a massive WR in Keith Gavin, who has committed to FSU, the War Eagles are talented. It has a stable of running backs ready to bring the veer option back to prominence. If the line solidi es, Wakulla should shake bad feelings from missing the playoffs last year despite an 8-2 season.

Most looking forward to Rickards and Godby games. KEITH GAVIN Wide receiver Jr. This team has something to prove, he says. Looking forward to the rst game against Florida High, plus Godby and Rickards. HUNTER HURST Defensive lineman Sr.Should be something special to watch on defense this year, he says. Hes looking forward to wins over Godby and Rickards.CALEB FELL Outside linebacker Sr.This years defense is disciplined up front, he says, and last years team didnt want it as much as this years. Godby is always a battle.MONTERIOUS LOGGINS Running back Jr. The 6-1, 220-pound back says this years team is fast and strong. Nothing like Godby and Wakulla. From Page B1And while Division I scouts and coaches have been on the sidelines of some recent games watching Franks and Gavin, Klees said he feels thats been a win-win for the other players theyre seeing the other kids play who are ying under the radar. Asked about the impact of all the attention on him, and being named as one of the Top 5 high school quarterbacks in the nation, Franks says hes staying humble. Hes focused on high school right now, not college. And he intends to take the season game-bygame. We were disappointed a little last year, he says. Were gonna be ready to play this year. Gavin says he stays focused by keeping his team rst. Klees has a deep running back corps headed by Monterious Loggins, who broke his leg in last years spring game and still is not 100 percent. Were a young team, Loggins says. We need to work hard this year and go all in. Other running backs include Antonio Morris and Demarcus Lindsey brother of past players Mario and Demetrius. This year, Klees says his goal is to get to the playoffs and see how far the team can take it. Much of that will depend on Franks. We have a quarterback with unique skills and weve got to use those skills, he says. He can run it, he can throw it, he says. Hes deceptively fast. On the other side of the ball, Klees acknowledges the defense is young You win championships with defense, bottom line, he says. The defense needs experience and says the teams ultimate success depends on how well we adjust to things during the football season. Two players anchoring that defense are Hunter Hurst, a 6-1, 230 pound lineman, and outside linebacker Caleb Fell, both seniors. Fell says the defensive front line is experienced and disciplined. Fell says hes motivated by memories of last years loss to Godby. Remembering how we lost last year has been with me all year, he says. If we stay disciplined up front, were gonna be able to stop their running back. Hurst thinks the defense is coming together as a cohesive group. If they can stay on track, he thinks the defense will be something special this year.Klees: Team is young, lacks experience Leon Grif n2014 War Eagles (contd)Not pictured: 6 Deon Valentine Providence Christian Academy Schedule an appointment today! 710 Shadeville Rd., Crawfordville, FL 32327www.providencepatriots.orgA Ministry of Central Baptist Church Home of the PATRIOTS!

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 28, 2014 thewakullanews.comsports news and team views SportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track CoachTwenty-four members of the 2014 WHS Cross Country teams got a jump-start on the season by attending the annual Gulf Winds Track Club Miller Landing Madness cross country run held at Phipps Park, north of Tallahassee, on Saturday, Aug. 23. The race has always been run on a challenging course, but a new wrinkle was added this year when one of the water jumps utilized in the Red Hill horse trials was incorporated into the course. Runners had to cross the water hazard twice while navigating the two loop course. Several of the top local runners did not attend this year, as they attended another race that featured ROTC team competition. The local boys were led by Senior Lane Williams, who nished in 8th place out of 172 runners. Other boys scoring for the club team were Alan Pearson (12th), freshman Dylan Peebles (15th), Mitchell Atkinson (23rd) and James Story (33rd). The boys team nished in third place. Sophomore Haleigh Martin, the top returning girl, turned in the fastest performance ever by a WHS girl in this annual pre-season event, running an excellent time of 21:33 and placing second overall in the female division. She was backed up in the scoring by Lydia Wiedeman (4th), Connie Lewis (5th), Emily Lawrence (11th) and Juliana Prestis (14th). The girls club team nished in rst place, just edging out a club team, the More Otters from perennial powerhouse Maclay school. The teams will kick off their regular season on Sept. 6 in the Cougar Challenge, hosted by Godby High School at the Phipps Park. CROSS COUNTRY PARENTS MEETING SET A WHS cross country parents meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 2, at the high school, beginning at 7 p.m.. The upcoming season will be discussed and a Boosters Meeting will follow. All parents of cross country runners are encouraged to attend. Students/runners are not required to attend. CROSS COUNTRY BASKETBALL MIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALLSpecial to The NewsWakulla High School would like to announce the hiring of Michael Sweatt as the Boys Head Basketball Coach for the 2014-15 season. Sweatt is a former multiple sport student athlete at Wakulla and graduated in 2001. He received a scholarship to play baseball at FAMU while earning his degree in Health and Physical Education. He coached at WHS previously for two years before heading to Franklin County to become the Head Coach where he also had a short tenure as their Athletic Director. In his ninth year of coaching he began right here in Wakulla County at Wakulla Middle as Head Coach for three years. When asked about returning, Coach Sweatt simply stated, I am happy to be back home and am looking forward to helping Wakulla Basketball get back on the map. There has always been talent here and I am excited about the upcoming season.By JOEY JACOBSRMS CoachThe Riversprings Middle School football team has kicked off fall practice, and the Bears are hard at working, hoping to improve upon last seasons mark. RMS had only its second losing season in school history, and rst under Coach Joey Jacobs, who is entering his 9th season at the helm of the RMS football program. Although the Bears are rebuilding this year, the expectations are high for the young team. Riversprings returns only one starter on offense, 8th grade offensive lineman Hunter Berube. We are brand spanking new at most every position on offense, but we have a group of hungry guys stepping up to play, Coach Jacobs said. The coaches are looking for big things from the RMS backeld, which is occupied by 8th grade running backs Ronnie Thomas and Kyle Johnson, 7th grade running back Jordan Bolden, and 7th grade quarterback Paxton Tomaini. Coaches expect 8th grade wide out Hayden Lenk to be a dependable taget for the RMS passing attack. Helping Berube to anchor the o-line will be 7th grader Kyan Gross. On defense the Bears only returning starter is 8th grade defensive lineman Darius Wilkins. Darius will be joined on the defensive side of the ball by a bevy of bright newcomers, including 8th grade defensive lineman Dylan Smith, and 7th defensive back Jarien Allen. With the talent on the defensive line and in the linebacker corps, some of the coaches feel like this seasons young Bear defense can be a throwback to Bear defenses of seasons past. Like the squad, the RMS coaching staff has seen a changing of the guard. Coaches Jimbo Rozar, Scott Cason, and Joshua Hawkins return on the Bears sideline, but Rozar will be in his rst season as RMS defensive coordinator. Jimbo brings intensity to the defense, as well as a high football IQ, coach Jacobs informed. I am excited to see what his defense brings on the eld. Riversprings also added former RMS and Wakulla High School standout James Douin to the staff. According to coach Jacobs, As a coach, James brings the same things he brought as a player, which are leadership, enthusiasm, and inspiration to those around him. The coaching staff is also joined by new coaches Tyler Jarvis and Brandon Bryant, who are working tirelessly to help the Bears excel. Riversprings opened up the 2014 campaign on Tuesday, Aug. 22, when they took on the WMS Wildcats in their annual season kickoff game. Along with the new faces comes a new set of challenges for the Bears. RMS is part of the Big Bend Middle School Conference, which is made up of eight teams in two divisions. The West Division is made up of RMS, WMS, Marianna, and Governors Charter. Madison, Suwannee, Taylor, and Hamilton constitute the East Division.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 28, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 22 Whats the old saying? You win some and you lose some? That was the case for the state in court this week, where attorneys won a historic case and lost another. On one hand, lawyers for the Legislature won a total victory in the second round of the legal battle over the states congressional districts when a Leon County judge ruled that a redrawn plan complied with the Florida Constitutions prohibition on political gerrymandering. And he ruled in favor of the state on the question of whether the 2014 elections will be held under the existing map or the new one. On the other hand, a state constitutional ban on samesex marriage was struck down by a federal judge though he suspended his ruling until an almost-inevitable appeal can be heard. Outside the courtroom, political battles continued ahead of Tuesdays primaries, though both Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist were expected to cruise to easy victories. A MAP THAT MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CONSTITUTION Its beginning to seem like the second time is the charm for the Legislature when it comes to following the antigerrymandering Fair Districts amendments, approved by voters in 2010. Lawmakers rst effort at crafting districts for the state Senate was rejected by the Florida Supreme Court; their second attempt was approved. And after Circuit Judge Terry Lewis struck down the congressional map that lawmakers passed in 2012, he accepted the version that the Legislature drew in a special session earlier this month. In doing so, Lewis brushed aside the arguments of votingrights organizations who said that by continuing the northsouth orientation of Congressional District 5, which runs from Jacksonville to Orlando, the GOP was packing too many black voters into that district in an effort to shore up nearby Republican districts. Opponents of the map wanted District 5 to run from Jacksonville in the east to Gadsden County in the west. Lewis didnt dispute arguments that the critics version was more compact than the Legislatures, at least by some measurements. The Legislature is not required, however, to produce a map that the plaintiffs, or I, or anyone else might prefer, Lewis wrote. The Legislature is only required to produce a map that meets the requirements of the Constitution. The judge also rejected a request from the League of Women Voters of Florida and other groups that had challenged the map to push back elections in seven districts affected by the rewrite. A lawyer for the voting-rights organizations promised an appeal, despite Senate President Don Gaetzs request that the litigation end. I believe the people of Florida have been given fairness and nality by Judge Lewis decision and that going forward Democrats and Republicans ought to spend less time in the courtroom and more time working to build a better Florida, Gaetz said. Republican Congressman Daniel Webster, whose district was redrawn as a result of the court battle, appeared to be taking no chances. Webster has established a fund that could be used to pay legal expenses, the National Journal reported. The ling, according to the National Journal, said the fund is for the sole purpose of defraying the legal costs ... in connection with his candidacy for an election to federal of ce. END OF THE GAY MARRIAGE BAN? The state has had less success defending the ban on same-sex marriage, which Florida voters approved in 2008. A handful of state courts had already ruled that the restriction is unconstitutional, and a federal judge followed suit Thursday. The significance of U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkles ruling is that it would be the rst to apply statewide if, that is, it takes effect. Hinkle agreed to stay his ruling pending a likely appeal by Attorney General Pam Bondi. Between the Florida case and rulings in other states striking down similar bans on gay marriage, the issue is believed to be on a fast track to the U.S. Supreme Court. The institution of marriage survived when bans on interracial marriage were struck down, and the institution will survive when bans on samesex marriage are struck down, Hinkle wrote in a 33-page ruling. Liberty, tolerance, and respect are not zero-sum concepts. Those who enter opposite-sex marriages are harmed not at all when others, including these plaintiffs, are given the liberty to choose their own life partners and are shown the respect that comes with formal marriage. The ruling excited Floridians like Christian Ulvert, a Democratic political operative who married his partner, Carlos Andrade, last year in Washington, D.C. Ulvert and Andrade are among nine couples who challenged the marriage ban. Its a judge recognizing my marriage to my husband in a state where I was born and raised. And it means that a law that discriminated against couples like me and Carlos is unconstitutional, Ulvert said. But Florida Family Policy Council President John Stemberger, who drafted and pushed the 2008 constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, dismissed the idea that he and other supporters of the restriction are on the wrong side of history. A little boy who longs to have a father in the inner city that will never be on the wrong side of history, he said. The little girl who has two dads and doesnt have a mom and she wants someone to guide her through the changes that a womans body goes through thats never going to be on the wrong side of history. And the beauty of how a man and woman come together and life is born and the next generation springs from that, thats never going to be on the wrong side of history. ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE BATTLE ROYAL At least of cially, both Scott, the Republican incumbent governor, and Crist, a former Republican running to regain his old job as a Democrat, have primary challengers. Scott is up against a pair virtually unknown candidates, one of whom has drawn more press notice for her bizarre fundraising reports than her platform. Crists challenge is a bit more dif cult, with former Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich having spoken to essentially every Democratic group that will hear her as she mounts a long-shot bid against Crist. But the primary races have largely taken a back seat to the expected head-to-head battle between Floridas last two governors. Scott tried to seize the initiative this week, touting plans to boost education spending and shore up the states infrastructure and meeting with climate scientists who dont share the governors previous skepticism about man-made global warming. In a series of campaign stops, he hyped a plan to reinforce the states roads, ports and airports. The plan focuses heavily on expanding parts of the existing transit infrastructure by af rming support for the state Department of Transportations $41 billion 5-year work program. Scott also promised to propose a budget in 2015 that would increase school spending to its highest level in history on a per-student basis. The old record is held, not coincidentally, by Crist. On both counts, critics said the governor, who rejected high-speed rail money and cut education spending early in his term, was experiencing politically convenient electionyear conversions. It wasnt clear that any similar turnabout was coming on climate change. In 2010, during his rst run for of ce, Scott said he wasnt convinced climate change was manmade. Since then, when asked how hed handle the problem, hes said hes not a scientist. Scientists met with Scott on Tuesday, but said they didnt think they had made much of an impact on the governor, who said little other than to ask whether the professors students were getting jobs in Florida. He didnt re ect on the science, David Hastings, a professor of marine science and chemistry at Eckerd College, said after the meeting. So he asked modest questions, but he did not ask questions that re ected his understanding of the material. STORY OF THE WEEK: Judge Terry Lewis rules that the Legislatures proposed x for the states congressional districts is in line with the Florida Constitutions ban on gerrymandering, and that this years elections will go forward under a 2012 redistricting plan. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: So I can promise you: Its not my anticipated lobbying of ce, cause I dont see that in my future, ever. I would rather be struck by a bolt of lightning than to be up there lobbying those folks. Theyre not my cup of tea. Attorney John Morgan, on whether his Tallahassee of ce might be a base for him to lobby.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Nobodys perfect WHITES WINESTerroirist manifesto of Anselme SelosseBy DAVID WHITENature is larger and bigger than all of us. Its crazy to think that man can dominate nature. Anselme Selosse issued this profound statement while explaining his winemaking philosophy one recent morning at his small property in Avize, a village in Champagnes Cte des Blancs. Wines must show the characteristics of the place, he continued. Illuminating the vineyard is my obsession. For Selosse, wine has a higher purpose. A wine must translate place, clearly expressing the characteristics of the soils and climate in which its grown. This concept the notion of terroir is hardly unique. Winemakers across the world wax poetically about how wine is made in the vineyard. When Selosse took over his fathers winery in 1974, however, such talking points werent yet clichd. In Champagne, especially, few producers cared about such things. There were exceptions, of course. But most of the large producers that dominated the region sought simply to deliver a consistent product each year. They purchased grapes from thousands of growers across Champagne and paid by the ton. So growers sought to dominate nature, maximizing yields by utilizing fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides. The results were predictably atrocious, but it didnt matter. For most producers and virtually every consumer, Champagne wasnt about wine; it was about luxury. So Selosses philosophy wasnt just unusual, it was downright revolutionary. Selosse learned to care about the quality of the fruit underneath a wine in Burgundy, where he was inspired by the legendary vignerons at Domaine Coche-Dury, Domaine Le aive, and Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Shortly after taking over his fathers vineyard holdings, Selosse began moving towards organic farming, obsessing over his land, and managing yields with a focus on quality. He started to push ripeness to its physiological extreme, a dif cult feat in Frances northernmost wine region. In the cellar, Selosse chose to focus on his vin clair the still wine thats created before secondary fermentation because [it] shows that all the avors are there; bubbles are just an accessory. Although soft-spoken, Selosse speaks with the fervor of a rebrand preacher, the charm of a practiced storyteller, and the passion of a zealous philosopher. As we chatted in his cellar, Selosse talked at great length about the micro-organisms that live in a vineyards soil and the unique characteristics they bring to his wines. To illustrate this theme, he pointed towards the ceiling, where the hindquarters of several pigs were hanging, slowly curing. For Selosse, the difference between Prosciutto di Parma, Jamon Iberico, and Jambon de Bayonne can be explained entirely by the ora, fauna, and fungi the pigs feed on in different regions of the world. He quickly extended the argument to cheese, milk, and sak. A moment later, Selosse pulled out a cigarette lighter, found a piece of paper, and lit it on re. Within seconds, he was left with a small pile of ash. Since all living things resolve to little more than carbon, he said, the identity of everything we consume is found in the ground. Nowhere else in the world can you make wines with the avors we have here, he explained, bringing it all back to Champagne. Scientific? Perhaps not. But with wines that are so extraordinarily expressive, Im a believer. Selosses wines arent easy to find. Miniscule production and a cult-like following have brought the prices skyhigh. When available, his least expensive offering retails for $165 per bottle. His impact cant be overstated. Selosse has inspired a whole generation of growers to pursue wines higher purpose. And he has inspired a whole generation of consumers to see Champagne as a vessel, fully capable of expressing a vineyard.David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com.

Financial Impact Statement: This amendment does not increase or decrease state revenues. The state revenue restricted to the purposes specified in the amendment is estimated to be $648 million in Fiscal Year 2015-16 and grows to $1.268 billion by the twentieth year. Whether this results in any additional state expenditures depends upon future legislative actions and cannot be determined. Similarly, the impact on local government revenues, if any, cannot be determined. No additional local government costs are expected. Full Text: ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 28. Land Acquisition Trust Fund. a) Effective on July 1 of the year following passage of this amendment by the voters, and for a period of 20 years after that effective date, the Land Acquisition Trust Fund shall receive no less than 33 percent of net revenues derived from the existing excise tax on documents, as defined in the statutes in effect on January 1, 2012, as amended from time to time, or any successor or replacement tax, after the Department of Revenue first deducts a service charge to pay the costs of the collection and enforcement of the excise tax on documents. b) Funds in the Land Acquisition Trust Fund shall be expended only for the following purposes: 1) As provided by law, to finance or refinance: the acquisition and improvement of land, water areas, and related property interests, including conservation easements, and resources for conservation lands including wetlands, forests, and fish and wildlife habitat; wildlife management areas; lands that protect water resources and drinking water sources, including lands protecting the water quality and quantity of rivers, lakes, streams, springsheds, and lands providing recharge for groundwater and aquifer systems; lands in the Everglades Agricultural Area and the Everglades Protection Area, as defined in Article II, Section 7(b); beaches and shores; outdoor recreation lands, including recreational trails, parks, and urban open space; rural landscapes; working farms and ranches; historic or geologic sites; together with management, restoration of natural systems, and the enhancement of public access or recreational enjoyment of conservation lands. 2) To pay the debt service on bonds issued pursuant to Article VII, Section 11(e). c) The moneys deposited into the Land Acquisition Trust Fund, as defined by the statutes in effect on January 1, 2012, shall not be or become commingled with the General Revenue Fund of the state.

The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers.

Financial Impact Statement: Increased costs from this amendment to state and local governments cannot be determined. There will be additional regulatory and enforcement activities associated with the production and sale of medical marijuana. Fees will offset at least a portion of the regulatory costs. While sales tax may apply to purchases, changes in revenue cannot reasonably be determined since the extent to which medical marijuana will be exempt from taxation is unclear without legislative or state administrative action.
