By BETH ODONNELLAssistant Superintendent Wakulla High Schools Senior Class of 2014 outscored their counterparts in Florida on the American College Test (ACT) in all areas tested: English, mathematics, reading, science, and the composite score. This is one of the common tests used for college entrance quali cations, including meeting requirements to take dual enrollment college courses while still in high school. On the ACT, WHS students averaged 20.2 in English (state 18.7). In mathematics, WHS was at 20.8 (state 19.5). WHS reading scores averaged 22.4 (state 20.7). WHS science scores came in at 21.0 (state 19.1). The overall average composite score for WHS graduates was 21.2 (state 19.6). WHS students also improved scores from the prior years WHS graduates in every area tested. Of exceptional note were improvements in reading averaging 22.4 over the prior years 20.9, and in science, improving to 21.0 from last years 19.8. The trend for our students to improve on a nationally standardized college entrance exam every year is a tribute to the hard work being done in our Wakulla public schools to graduate every student college and career ready, said Superintendent Bobby Pearce. We keep looking for more ways to capture every childs interests through more Career and Technical (Vocational) programs, more dual enrollment college courses offered on the WHS campus, and more attention to each students unique needs. The number of WHS seniors taking the ACT has increased over the past ve years from 129 students in 2010 to 152 seniors in 2014, even though the number of graduates has remained similar. More participation is partly due to WHS offering the ACT on the WHS campus twice a year instead of students having to drive to Tallahassee. Students are encouraged to take the ACT and/ or the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) in order to broaden their options for after high school.

By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@wakullanews.net To the Friends of Wakulla Springs, the future is not a place we go, but a place we create. On Aug. 23, 150 community members had an opportunity to learn about the history of Floridas springs and wetlands, their precarious ecological position, and what we can do to make a difference. The event at the community center was part of the Friends stepping-out series, that brings springs education outside of Wakulla Springs State Park, and into the public. John Moran, a nature photographer, shared his photos of Florida springs taken throughout his career. Many of the photos depicting carpets of emerald sea grass in the pools of enchantment that are Florida springs were compared to recent photographs in the same locations. The images show the inundation of nitrates from spray elds and fertilizers that cause green algae to cover everything. Moran uses his photos to reach people in a way that words alone cannot. Moran said the tie that binds is the gift we share to call Florida home. His photos of alligators, beaches, birds, rivers, lakes, trees, turtles, owers and people show that water is our spiritual lifeblood. He said, Florida springs are incredible gems of the Florida landscape, but the magic fountains are in peril, which is nothing less than economic suicide. The photos are a catalogue of what once was, Moran said. Few Floridians know what healthy springs look like. I just want to be a nature photographer who shoots pretty pictures. But Im obligated to tell the truth as I see it. Moran said that 90 percent of Floridas drinking water comes from springs. Clean water is like a good reputation, Moran said. When youve got it, you dont think about it. But when its gone, thats all you can think about. He closed by promoting the organization called Springs Eternal, and learn how to take action by visiting the website www.springseternalproject.org. He said, The measure of a civilization is not what it creates, but what it refuses to destroy. Dr. Bob Knight, director of the Florida Springs Institute in Gainesville, discussed the function and values of wetlands, and how they factor into springs restoration efforts. He said Florida has 11 million acres of wetlands, but agriculture exemptions that destroy wetlands are an increasing problem. The problem in Wakulla County, Knight said, are the wetlands buffers. Why do we need them? Wetlands are complex plant and animal communities. If you dont protect its edge, you dont protect them at all. People cant bulldoze to the edge of something and expect it to be protected. Knight showed graphs and data of nitrate concentrations, and said that for every dollar it costs to put nitrates into the ground (and eventually the springs), it costs $100 to clean up. Wakulla County is in a zone of high nitrate levels, he said. The sources of the nitrates are from any place where there is farming near exposed aquifers, septic tanks and fertilization. Almost every one of the springs are contaminated, Knight said. And Wakulla Springs is on that list. Turn to Page 2ABy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netMichele Thorsen and Emile Red Barnes did not need atware, a new blender, Egyptian cotton pillowcases or fancy bath towels when they married on Aug. 9. Instead, they asked for gifts that would never be used in their newlywed nest. The couples wedding invitation said in lieu of any gifts, to donate pet food and supplies for Wakulla County critters. Low and behold, they loaded us up, Thorsen said. My husband and I are in mid-50s. We have everything we could ever want and more. Its better to give than receive sometimes. Some of our friends were so incredible. They lled up our garage. That was amazing. More than 1,000 pounds of food went to Cauzican Care and the Senior Centers Meals on Wheels program, which also services local pets. Included in the wedding gifts were bowls, toys, litter, scratching posts and blankets. $300 in checks were gifted to the couple as well, which were given to the animal shelter. I have a love for animals that need to be cared for, Thorsen said. When I moved to Wakulla County from Leon County three and a half years ago, my eyes were opened to the animal problem. Im living out in the county, and the feral cats running through here were staggering to me. Thorsen said she started feeding a couple of animals. Its a problem, Thorsen said. People need to spay and neuter. When I retire, I want this to be more a calling for me to be involved at some level. There is a huge need. I feel responsible. Giving helps satisfy the feeling of responsibly that all of us have in taking care of each other, and that includes animals as well. I commend the people who work tirelessly. I cant do what they do, but I can help in other ways. Thorsen praised CHATs Trap, Neuter and Release program, saying it is an excellent idea, and she looks forward to being involved. The couple hopes to start a wedding trend. Wed like to start a wave for people to think differently than spending money on gifts, Thorsen said. Its about the bigger picture. Maurice Langston, director of the Senior Center, said he has never met Ms. Thorsen, And furthermore, Ive never, ever heard of a bride doing such a wonderful and worthy deed, he said. Its one of the most sel ess and self-sacrificing performances of giving and compassion Ive ever witnessed. I hope I have the opportunity to meet her some day, as people like her are usually ordinary folks who always strive to do the extraordinary. She took love from out-of-the-box to into-the-bag when we off-loaded a cart full of bagged cat-food and supplies at the Senior Center.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netA distinguished guest was among citizens, county staff and commissioners at the Aug. 18 Wakulla County Board of Commissioners meeting. Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Sheree Keeler presented a certi cate of appreciation to Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee. Keeler spoke from the heart. You and your staff are wonderful, she said to Montford. Your door is always open, and you have always greeted me and commissioners when we walk in without an appointment. When we need you, youre there. And I think that Wakulla, in the legislative process, faired better this year than ever. Montford said it was the rst award of its kind he has ever received from a county, and he praised the meeting format, which gives citizens ample opportunity to weigh in on issues. Wakulla County is a very, very special place, Montford said. Let me just say from an outsiders standpoint you do a tremendous job. Wakulla County is facing challenges that very few, if any other county in the state, is facing. Youre growing quite rapidly. Youve got issues on the table that are not mundane that are controversial. Thats how good government operates when you invite people and encourage people of different opinions to come up and speak their piece. In other matters: There was a public hearing to consider prohibiting the county from accepting anonymous code enforcement complaints. The motion to do away with anonymous complaints passed 4-1, with Commissioner Howard Kessler voting no. A few meetings back, Kessler offered to le anonymous complaints for anyone who might be hesitant to give their name for fear of retaliation. Since then he has received some, which were evaluated for legitimacy, and passed on if necessary. Kessler said he has perceived almost all of them as legitimate. He added that anyone who wishes to remain anonymous, may still contact him, but should not give him his or her name. Chris Rietow, executive director of the Apalachee Regional Planning Council, talked about the councils focus on economic development. Commission Chair Richard Harden noted that the ARPC can bene t local small businesses who take advantage of its revolving loan fund as a secondary lending source. Kessler encouraged the public to sign up to the Saving Wakulla Springs Over Land caravan/hiking tour, which will be Saturday, Sept. 20. Jim Stevenson, expert biologist, will lead the tour of the Wakulla Spring Basin which examines the sources, and traces the waters journey to Wakulla Springs. Call (850) 926-3376 to sign up. Kessler honored veteran Bonnie Sturchio, who was part of a tribute for taking last years honors ight for World War II Veterans to visit the memorial in Washington, D.C. The board approved a resolution accepting the subordination of county utility interests agreements with state Department of Transportation for an easement located on US 319, near the intersection of US 98. Citizen Dana Peck urged the board to hold off on the subordination, so Wakulla County has some bargaining power. County Administrator David Edwards said the existing easement is not being utilized, nor will it be utilized in the future. This will also allow the county to require DOT to build a sleeve under the asphalt to run a sewer line through it in the future. The board approved an item to direct the Marine Advisory Committee to make arti cial reef projects its priority; schedule an arti cial reef workshop in October; seek partnerships with neighboring counties on marine projects; and improve the letter-of-support process. Citizen Bill Anderson said he applauds the procedure, But theres a huge hole in this one, he said. He indicated that marine project applicants are not required to provide enough information before receiving letters of support. Eugene Watkins and Chuck Hess offered scienti c perspectives, both saying arti cial reefs alone will not necessarily bring back grouper populations. Hess said it is better to focus on harvest rates. Thomas said any tweaks can be applied at the workshop. Ivanhoe Carroll of the Wakulla County Animal Control discussed a sample startup program for an adoption center, that would mean at $10,000 budget increase. Carroll said the animal shelter is totally different from an adoption center, where animals are not ready for interaction with the public. She said the program would start small, utilizing part of the prior adoption center. Edwards said the county can decide what to do next after assessing the pilot programs level of success, and available grants. Some commissioners expressed concern about the impact on the budget. Sen. Montford honored by commission, staffNICOLE ZEMACommissioners Ralph Thomas, Howard Kessler, Richard Harden, Jerry Moore and Randy Merritt pose with Senator Bill Montford.From Front Page But he did offer a solution man-made wetlands. Constructed wetlands can work as a filter around areas where nitrates runoff toward springs basins. A triple bonus is the cost effectiveness of constructed wetlands, which can also be a draw for eco-tourism, and a habitat for wetlands critters. He used the Tram Road spray eld in Tallahassee as an example that would be ideal for a man-made wetland. To learn more, visit www.springsforever.org. Friends President Madeline Carr moderated a panel of wetlands and springs experts including Knight, Moran, Jim Stevenson and Dr. Todd Kincaid. One audience member asked about fertilizing lawns. Knight said there is enough nitrogen in the rain, that lawns in Florida dont need fertilizing at all. Moran said, Fertilizer is as healthy to the springs, as smoking is for your lungs. Jack Rudloe asked if the exponential growth of nitrates can be linked to cancer and other diseases. Knight said while there are no of cial studies, he has heard of high incidents of possibly nitrate-related cancers in the Suwannee Basin, and in the Midwest. Stevenson asked how many county commissioners were at the event, and only Commissioner Howard Kessler was present, along with candidates Bill Anderson and Taylor Phillips. Ron Piasecki asked the audience to vote yes on the wetlands buffer amendment, to reinstate local protections. The next stepping out event is called Do Bladderworts Make Sounds? on Saturday, Sept. 13, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Take a look at the creatures, plants and rhythms of nature. Presenters are Katherine Gilbert, local wetlands expert, and Jack Rudloe of Gulf Specimen Marine Lab.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netMost people consider it a pain to move. But members of the Wakulla County Historical Society will be celebrating on Wednesday, Sept. 10, as the Tully-McLaughlin house is relocated to a staging area near its new home at Heritage Village Park on Old Zion Road. Moving the 122-yearold structure is no small feat, but thanks to successful fundraising efforts, proactive volunteerism and local generosity, the historical house can be a time capsule of Big Bend life at the turn of the 20th century. Historical Society and McLaughlin family members will proceed to Hudson Park at 10 a.m. on Sept. 10 to cheer as the old home slowly makes its way up Crawfordville Highway. The public is invited to witness the spectacle. Historical Society member Murray McLaughlins grandfather lived in the house located across from Pigotts store in Medart since at least the mid1930s. The house was built in 1892 by George Washington Tully who built the old wooden courthouse. McLaughlin said the family sold the property in 2005. The new landowner assured them he would call if he ever considered tearing down the old house. But in 2006 McLaughlin got a call from Betty Green, who heard rumors of demolition. The property owner said anyone who cared about the house had two weeks to move it. McLaughlin said Betty Green dug into her own pockets to have the house and attached kitchen moved, and Marshall Spears offered to hold it on his property since then. McLaughlin said Freeman Pigott, who owns a moving company, agreed to move the house at a discount. What would cost us $5,000 to $6,000, will cost us a third of that, McLaughlin said. Finally its going to happen. Its amazing what movers can do. Sheriffs deputies will help with traf c control, since the oversize load will take up one-and-a-half lanes. McLaughlin said the house will come through Crawfordville at 10 a.m., and stop by the First Baptist Church parking lot. An entourage with flag detail, a atbed with banjo pickers, and vintage cars will proceed in front, with family members on foot, accompanying the house up to Dogwood Drive at Hudson Park. McLaughlin said the Historical Society submitted a $50,000 grant application to the Florida Historic Preservation Board for weatherization and stabilization to prevent further deterioration, until it can be fully restored. If awarded, the grant would do the same for the Smith Creek School House, which has already been relocated to the park, and moving one additional structure there. He said the next step in terms of funding is engineering. The creation of Heritage Village Park will be a local economic and cultural boost as it comes together, piece by piece. Volunteers have worked to make the park a reality, and Ben Boynton donated the 37 acres for the park. Some might wonder why it is important to preserve old structures. Its so generations to come will have physical evidence of what it looked like to live in 1900s, McLaughlin said. They are time capsules for people to look back on, to open, to walk into, and say this is what it looked like at home where real families lived. No electricity, no running water, no air conditioning.Tully-McLaughlin house to be moved LOCAL NEWSThe Wakulla Newswww.thewakullanews.com NOTICE OF SPECIAL PUBLIC HEARINGThe Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners will hold a Special Public Hearing on September 9, 2014 at 5:01 p.m., in the Commission Chambers, 29 Arran Rd., Crawfordville, FL. 32327, to Consider Adopting the FY2014/2015 Tentative Budget & Tentative Millage Rate.

Page 4A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comI asked the Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells, What time did you get up this morning? He said 3 a.m. By 6:40 p.m. on primary election night, Wells was still running wide open, thanks to a couple of B12 vitamins, he said. His wife Letha asked if he wanted a plate of food, but Wells was too busy to eat. There was a stack of 1,309 absentee ballots that needed to be recounted, and the public was starting to le in to the viewing room to see election results. It was crunch time. While I have covered probably six or seven elections throughout my journalism career, Ive never had a front row seat to the action like I did Tuesday night. I was welcomed into the room, and had to sign a list to account for all observers present. Citizen Sue Damon signed it too, and sat beside me to watch the process. Wells said any community members are invited to sit in on the process, as long as they sign in. The three-member canvassing board worked as an assembly line one person opening the envelopes, another removing the security sleeves from the ballots, and yet another stacking the ballots in a pile. This is done for the sake of privacy, Wells said, so not one canvassing board of cial can see who voted or how. One of ce employee made a few trips to the post of ce to gather any last minute ballots that were dropped in the evening. Wells said straggler ballots that arrived the next day are not valid. Some of the ballots were considered spoiled. Wakulla County Judge Jill Walker, who sits on the canvassing board, is the only one authorized to create a new ballot for the bad ones some of them stained, wrinkled, checked instead of bubbled, and one voter submitted a sample ballot by mistake. The spoiled ballots are recorded and placed into special envelopes. Most of the absentee ballots had been counted the day before, and Wells made sure everyone was aware of that number. He called out the number off the ballot scanner, and had other people in the room check to con rm it. It had been recorded on a form, which was also checked and doublechecked. He also had people double check the serial number of the scanners, and the numbered lock on the scanner bags, to ensure they matched, and that a scanner had not been switched out. When the numbers of absentee ballots didnt match the number on the ballot scanner, which was off by two, Wells knew what they had to do count all of the ballots again. But rst, he unlocked and checked all of the ling cabinets, and the secure box under the ballot scanner. The canvassing board checked every envelope and security sleeve for the two rogue ballots. When the two ballots never appeared, Wells packed up the scanner, which will be shipped back to the company, Dominion, to be checked out. He retrieved a new scanner from the shelf, and had the security lock number checked against the scanners serial number. I was impressed with the meticulous integrity of the process. I am too lazy and impatient to ever make a good elections supervisor or canvassing board member. Canvassing board members took turns feeding all 1,309 ballots through the fresh scanner. Damon and Brent Thurmond alternated watching the number on the scanner, to be sure each and every ballot fed through was counted. The fresh scanner was more accurate, and every ballot was accounted for. Wells printed off a long report on receipt paper, called out the nal number, and had the canvassers sign it. By this time it was approaching 7:15, when the absentee and early vote numbers had to be submitted to the state. Around the same time, results started rolling in from the 12 Wakulla County precincts. Wells didnt miss a beat. He switched modes and seemed relieved to hear the healthy screeching of the modem line transferring data from the precincts. The votes were in. Hopefully Wells got some rest, because November will be here before we know it.Nicole Zema is reporter at The Wakulla News. readers speak out The Opinion Page The Wakulla News (USPS 664-640) is published weekly at 3119-A Crawfordville Hwy., Crawfordville, FL 32327.

I hit a Waste Pro can that was left in the road. As I was approaching the can, I noticed it close to the edge. I started slow my speed, and the tailgating truck behind got closer as I think he was going to pass me as soon as the oncoming car passed. I had to make a split second decision to slam on brakes or hit the can since I could not move to the other lane, I chose to hit the can. I led a claim to have my mirror repaired which in turn was turned down when I asked why the man who was in charge said I should have avoided the can AT ALL COSTS. I asked did that mean even causing an accident and maybe getting someone killed? He said again I had the responsibility to avoid it AT ALL COSTS. This in my opinion is just plain WRONG. We, as a county, have got to get together and get Waste Pro to make sure the cans are not left in the roads before someone is killed. Thanks, Phyllis Smith CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: The wetlands controversy continues, and it reminds me of the climate change problem. Due to lack of understanding of the harm being done to our environment through inadequate pollution controls, lack of adequate sewer containment, over fertilizing, and damage to our ground cover and wetland buffer plants, we sometimes perpetuate problems that lead to negative consequences for the environment. In our local area one of the big ways we can make a difference in our environment is by providing adequate wetland buffers. One reason we need to get back our 75 foot wetland buffer zone is to help filter the runoff from contaminants which are ruining our fragile ecosystem. My daughter used to collect seaweed from the shore for her garden, but the seaweed is now so full of impurities that it cannot be used anymore. Another good reason for the 75 foot wetland buffer is to keep the wetlands healthy so that they help to control ooding and provide living and breeding places for wildlife and sea life. Extinction is a scary word, but in the future much of our sea life could be extinct because of a lack of clean water and breeding areas in our marshes. We need to make sure these areas are protected as well as we can. A 75 foot buffer is not too much for us to leave for the animals, birds and sea life that need it in order to thrive. Please vote YES in November to protect our wetlands. Bonnie Sturchio Sopchoppy Editor, The News: It seems only yesterday that Wakulla County came together to bring a brighter Christmas to over 300 families, and now we are less than four months away from our next Operation Santa Distribution Day, December 13th.

Janice Eakin Director Robin Lunn, Assistant Director Editor, The News: The election for School Board is over and I would like to thank everyone who supported my campaign. I am grateful to all the people who had signs in their yard, waved at the polls, wrote letters, shared my Facebook posts, rode in the parades, and talked to their friends and neighbors about my quali cations. I am especially thankful to all those who exercised their American right and voted in the Primary. Thank you for taking the time to learn about the candidates and going to vote. Thank you for teaching your children and grandchildren how democracy works. I would also like to thank my wonderful family and friends for all their help. Success wouldnt have been possible without them. Also, thanks go to the Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells and his staff. They were extremely helpful and professional. Thank you, Wakulla County, for having confidence in me. I will work very hard for our children and our school system. Gratefully, Jo Ann Daniels School Board District 5WMS excited about Myhre as principalEditor, The News: The Wakulla Middle School Wildcats are excited about this new school year with our leadership team. Where some districts may experience unrest with a change in leadership, WMS is energized. An esprit de corps attitude and focus on providing the best for our students permeates throughout the school. Our new principal, Rick Myhre, was selected as the number one choice as WMS Principal by a seven member interview panel consisting of a retired Calhoun County Superintendent, the Madison County HR Director [minority], a current Wakulla principal, an HR specialist from the legislative branch of the state, the districts current Chief Financial Ofcer, a retired Wakulla Principal and three Wakulla Middle School teacher leaders. For those who may not know, the WMS Principal was the 1997 WHS Valedictorian, an IT specialist, teacher and U.S. Army soldier. He received multiple commendations including the Bronze Star Award for service in Iraq. Sgt. Rick Myhre was noted as among the best for his loyalty, duty, respect, sel ess service, honor, integrity and personal courage while in the U.S. Army including his tour of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. He returned to Wakulla County to raise his family because of his love and dedication to Wakulla County. He has been a successful teacher and applauded Dean of Students. WMS has a deep tradition of a strong learning community. Rick Myhre had demonstrated his belief in the sum being greater than the individual parts as he has placed us where our strengths contribute the most. He inspires us by sharing in our motivation for success and encouraging all of us to grow professionally. Rick Myhre has received meritorious achievement in all his endeavors. I am con dent his service as our Wildcat Principal will be no different as he has already proven the importance of visibility, effective communication and the safety of all stakeholders. We are excited as a faculty to have Mr. Myhre and are beyond excited about serving the students of this great district.

His wife had to leave his bedside so she could go get her cancer treatment. Right next door to his room is another good friend of mine whose cancer has taken over her body; along with other families trying to say goodbye to their loved one. When a person first hears the words, you have cancer, its one of the hardest things in life. The other is putting on a brave face to tell family and friends, assuring them that it will be OK. Everyday I say a prayer to God that my cancer doesnt come back, and that we will nd a cure for this deadly disease. Also, that I will not have to say goodbye to another loved one and watch them suffer from the pain of cancer. To nd a cure for this deadly disease, there has to be research and this takes funding. So from 1 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 9, come to Myra Jeans Restaurant in Crawfordville and sign up your team for Relay for Life Wakulla 2015. Its FREE to register. Or if you wish to make a donation, you can contact me at 850-322-2652 or relayforlifewakulla@ gmail.com Together lets help raise funds to aid in the research to nd a cure for cancer, so the next time a person hears those words, they know there is a cure, and they will survive.Why join, or donate to Relay for Life Wakulla? From the Front Page Our seniors and their pets, which are now companions in many cases, are deeply thankful for the food, Langston said. Id normally call it a donation, but this was an act and gift of love. You can put a price on a donation but gifts of love are priceless! Langston thanked the couple for their gift.

SNYDERMy schedule recently called for me to do some travel involving airplanes. I am not a fan of airplanes, but airports are something else altogether. They seem to be like a mall. Whatever you want, you can nd it in an airport. The bigger the airport, the more you can nd. I was sitting in an airport restaurant waiting for my plane and simply enjoying myself. I watched the people go by and inside I was laughing and making fun of them. I play a little game when I am all by myself. If only they knew what I was thinking about as they walked by, they would come over and give me a stern look. I have never seen a person that I cannot make fun of, including that raspy looking person in my bathroom mirror. It is the sort of game you can play when you are all by yourself with nothing else to do. I was sipping my umpteenth cup of coffee when I happened to notice several people walking by who were sneezing. At rst I did not think too much of it, but then I began to notice more and more people sneezing. Is there a sneezing epidemic going on that I have not heard of yet? I tried not to pay attention to it and went back to my game of Who Can I Make Fun of Now? Maybe it was programmed into my head at the time, but I could not help noticing every other person walking by heading for an airplane was either sneezing or snif ing or coughing. I thought to myself, Self, I sure hope they are not on our plane? I nally got to my gate and waited to board the airplane and then take off. I was checking some things on my cell phone when I heard a person behind me sneeze. Not only did they sneeze, but they sneezed half a dozen times and it just about drove me crazy. I know the road to crazy for me is rather a short drive, but I hate taking that road. It dawned on me at the time that the person behind me doing all the sneezing was also waiting to get on the same plane I was going to board in a few minutes. Why cant they check your sneezing at the gates before you come in so that you do not have to take it on board the plane? I mean, after all, they check for everything else! Finally, my number was called and I began boarding the airplane. I noticed in front of me was the man who was going all of the sneezing. I whispered to myself, Self, I hope he has certainly got all of the sneeze out of him. We nally were seated and it takes me quite a while to get buckled in. Whoever designed planes designed them with the seven Disney dwarfs in mind. To get that belt around me and buckled is a great accomplishment. I would not say I am oversized, just that I am post thin, and by the time I squeezed myself into the seat and strapped myself in with the buckle it is about all I can do to breathe. On this ight, I happen to be seated in the middle. There would be a person on my right and a person on my left. It was at that time I prayed that they would be skinny and healthy. Two gentlemen came in, one on my left, the other on my right. By the time we all got in and buckled, none of us could move one way or the other. We smiled at each other and then the plane took off and we were airborne. I happened to notice at the time that nobody on the plane was sneezing, coughing, or even snif ing. I sighed a deep sigh and then it happened to me. I am not quite sure how all of this happens, but I felt the in the bottom of my lungs a presneeze condition. At that point, I knew exactly what was coming and I did not know how to deal with it. When you sneeze on an airplane, you cannot turn to your left or to your right because people are sitting there. What is a person to do? If I look up and sneeze, it will all come down on me. Then I remembered the people I knew when they had to sneeze, sneezed into their arm. I raised my right arm just as I was about to sneeze, and boy did I sneeze. Whenever I sneeze, it always has to be in triplets. I sneezed three times in my arm and when I come out from that arm, it was drooping and dripping with all sorts of gunk that came from somewhere deep inside of me. What do you do with gunk like that on an airplane? As I was trying to think about what to do, a verse of Scripture came to my mind. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying (1 Corinthians 14:26). It is hard to discipline yourself to do only those things that edify other people. That is the challenge of the Christian life.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at (866) 552-2543 or e-mail email@example.com.

The problem is that there is a dead body and something must be done within a short period of time, to properly accomplish final disposition with kindness, dignity and respect. What are survivors in this very undesirable situation supposed to do for funds? If the funeral home accepts credit cards, the survivor can utilize his or her preestablished credit and then make the necessary payments to the credit card carrier. I nd that survivors do not like this option. It is possible that most of them think the interest is too high, or they do not carry enough space on their credit cards to be able to afford such a substantial expense. The funeral funds, however, must be provided before services can be rendered. If the next of kin is unable to raise the necessary funds through his or her own credit, they may choose to ask additional family members and friends to contribute. This can be embarrassing and many survivors do not care for this option either. Some families are under the misconception that if they refuse or cannot provide the necessary funds, the government will cover their loved ones funeral expenses. While it may be true that some counties have funds for paupers, these funds are reserved for indigents. If a decedent has family members or relatives, he or she does not qualify for the funds. Unfortunately, funds that must be quickly obtained usually end up carrying extremely high fees. Whoever loves the decedent enough to step up to his or her deserted plate, usually ends up paying a far greater price and burden than the decedent would have if he or she had just taken care of this issue before his or her inevitable death. The easiest and most cost effective way to provide funds for ones funeral expenses is called pre-need insurance, and it is purchased prior to ones death. Paying for a decedents funeral after his or her death is called an expensive burden. If you are setting your loved ones up for this very unfair situation, they will be suffering the burden of your debt for a very long and laborious time.Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer.

In addition to dual enrollment courses offered on the WHS campus or at the TCC Center in Crawfordville, distance learning equipment was purchased from the Gifted and Talented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Scholars grant through the Panhandle Education Consortium. Wakulla High is using this equipment to offer dual enrollment STEM courses that do not have enough WHS students to offer a class. Through distance learning, the WHS students can virtually become part of the actual TCC class in Tallahassee while remaining on the WHS campus. Furthermore, Advanced Placement courses are high school classes taught at a challenging college level with an internationally recognized standardized test at the end of the course. Students earn high school credits and can also earn college credits through the AP program. Students will be better prepared to score higher on the ACT and on the SAT if they have chosen a challenging course of studies. They are encouraged to take the tests several times to improve their scores, starting in the fall of their junior year at the latest. Wakulla High School has increased information and awareness efforts, including Parent Nights several times a year. For more information on taking the ACT or the SAT, contact the Wakulla High School Guidance Department or WHS Assistant Principal of Curriculum Sunny Chancy (sunny. firstname.lastname@example.org). All school counselors, Career Specialist Sarabeth Jones, and Assistant Principal Chancy are now located in the new one stop counseling center for student and parent convenience at 926-2221.Wakulla grads exceed state on ACT Mahaley Ruth Sanders Watts, 80, died on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at Tallahassee Regional Medical Center.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunityBy MICHELLE KIRBYSpecial to The NewsA rare event recently occurred in our Capital City. Finley Lamar McMillan, Florida resident and longtime resident of Ochlockonee Bay, was recognized with a Grandson medal from Finleys Brigade Camp 1614, Sons of Confederate Veterans. Mr. McMillans grandfather was Angus M. McMillan, Captain of Company K, 6th Florida Infantry. The Camps name re ects the common Confederate leader, Jesse J. Finley, for whom Mr. McMillan and Finleys Brigade is named. Mr. Finley McMillan, along with his daughter Michelle McMillan Kirby and grandson Andy Gowan, both of Tallahassee, recently gave a presentation about Angus McMillan to Finleys Brigade where Mr. McMillan and his grandson Andy are members. To Mr. McMillans complete surprise, the bestowal of the medal by Camp Commander Kelly Crocker occurred after their presentation. Finley will be 86 years young this October 27th. He was born in Marianna with family anecdotes of his grandfather Angus being friends and an advocate for Governor John Milton, Floridas governor during the War. Mrs. Kirby serves as a District Director for the Florida panhandle for the Florida Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and also Chapter president of R. Don McLeod 2469 in Crawfordville. It was such an honor to pin my father and to hear my son speak of honoring his grandfathers father, shared Kirby. Its all about family. Angus M. McMillan saw plenty of action during the War Between the States at Chickamauga, Franklin, Resaca, Murfreesboro, Atlanta, and Nashville. Captain McMillan was captured on Shys Hill on December 16, 1864 during the Battle of Nashville and taken prisoner and kept at Johnsons Island POW camp in Ohio until the end of the War. Upon return to the South, Angus was instrumental in the founding of Chipley. He was a generous man and donated land for the building of the Presbyterian Church in Chipley, was on the educational board of trustees, and was known to give land as wedding presents. He fathered 11 children whose descendants extend as far as the state Washington. More information about Angus can be found at www.rdonmcleod.org. 50 members are needed to make a WAKULLA NAACP CHAPTER of cial. Application deadline is Sept. 8.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolBy BRENDA CROUCHProject Manager FloridaLearns STEM ScholarsThrough the Panhandle Area Educational Consortiums, FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Project STEM Talent Development Program, talented and gifted high school juniors and seniors from small and rural districts across Florida had the opportunity to take part in locally-available Field Site/Workplace Experiences this summer. These experiences, made possible through partnerships with leaders in STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, and Math), such as industries, local businesses, agencies, the military, and higher education faculty, gave students an opportunity to actively engage in doing real STEM work. Water is vitally important to every aspect of life on Earth and Floridas bodies of water are treasured resources. STEM Scholars from Wakulla High School had a unique opportunity to learn this first hand through an eight-day eld experience, provided by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Throughout the experience Scholars were engaged in conducting a watershed survey at various area sites including Lake Lafayette, Lake Munson, Tallahassee Wastewater Treatment Facility, Leon Sinks Geological Area, Wakulla Springs State Park, San Marco de Apalache, and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. This handson learning opportunity involved thematic mapping of the watershed boundaries, conducting water quality monitoring using the World Water Monitoring Challenge system and a variety of water quality monitoring equipment, and applying what was learned to develop a watershed teaching packet for educators. Students learned from and worked alongside experts from the Department of Environmental Protection, the City of Tallahassee, and the Northwest Florida Water Management District. Greg Ira, Director, and Kennedy Hanson and Jacquelyn Zimmerman, Environmental Education Specialists, all with the Office of Environmental Education and Sustainable Initiatives, Florida Department of Environmental Protection coordinated student activities and led the eld work. Wakulla School District teachers, Suzanne Fielder and Nicholas Weaver were the onsite teacher leaders. Three days into the experience, Wakulla High School teacher Suzanne Fielder said, I am thankful for the privilege of leading these students. The activities have been well planned and fun for the kids. The people from DEP have an amazing wealth of knowledge and the students have learned a lot already. Greater insights into STEM career options and a keener understanding of the relevance of the rigorous STEM courses they are taking while in high school were important outcomes for students. They also benefited by learning why ongoing water quality monitoring is critical to protect our waterways from pollution and how monitoring is carried out. By KAREN J. WELLSWCSD Chief Human Capital Of cerWakulla County Schools Employee of the Year: Patricia Baker Ms. Baker has been employed with the food service department in the District for 14 years. During that time she has participated in continuing education meal pattern implementation training and maintained certi cation with the Florida School Nutrition Association and the National School Nutrition Association. Gail Mathers notes, Ms. Baker began her career with food service as a part time worker, however her knowledge and work ethic quickly moved her to a full time position. She is motivated, organized and dependable and assumed any role with an upbeat can-do positive approach. Baker currently serves as the district Resource Manager and will represent Wakulla County School District in the annual State School Related Employee of the Year event. Superintendent Pearce shares, Ms. Baker provided an energizing back-toschool speech at our luncheon last week, including a display of her musical talents on the keyboard. Her dedication, loyalty and commitment to the students and the school system make her an excellent choice for this prestigious award. Wakulla County District-Level Administrator of the Year: Beth ODonnell Ms. ODonnell has retired her full-time position from the district, as of July 2014. She will continue to assist the district on a part-time basis as the instructional and curriculum departments transition and individuals assume new duties. Ms. ODonnell has provided a long career of service to the students, faculty and staff of the Wakulla County School District and will be sorely missed. Superintendent Bobby Pearce, retired Superintendent David Miller and Chief Academic Of cer Beth Mims all cited examples of ODonnells exceptional service to the Wakulla County School District that brought tearful reminders to many.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comThese past couple of weeks have been brutal. Temperatures in the mid to higher 90s and it appears it still isnt over. Add to that all the grass floating on the ats and it makes trout shing pretty tough. I just got off the phone with Capt. Randy Peart and he is still shing over at St. George Island. He said for the most part shing has been slow most of the summer, but this is the busiest season he has ever had over there. Some trout are still being caught and quite a few reds are coming from Bob Sikes Cut. Randy keeps up with shing around the Econ na and he said some trout are being caught and a very few reds. Everyone down there is looking forward to cooler weather and hoping the reds find their way back. Capt. David Fife has been catching a few reds but said not too many. He said he anchored on a bar the other day with some young boys and their mother and on the rst cast one of the boys caught and released a 29inch red. After that no more bites. David rigged up some lights and went oundering Saturday night. No ounder but he did see lots of big sheepshead around the bars. He also didnt see a single red which is a little disturbing. One of my neighbors down here does a lot of shing, and lately more diving. He said they went diving last weekend and dove both deep and shallow and did not see one legal grouper and in fact didnt see many grouper. When they got back to the marina he talked to one of the employees and he had not seen any grouper come in at all. Dr. Julian Hurt said he fished this weekend and caught quite a few small trout and some flounder but it was tough shing. The weekend it was so hot I shed Friday and Saturday and I dont remember being any hotter. I called the folks I was going to sh with the day before to see if they wanted to cancel. She said no but at about noon when the wind quit and the tide stopped she said she didnt ever remember being any hotter. Despite the heat we came in with eight ounder, 10 Spanish, three mangrove snapper and three reds. We caught everything on live shrimp. Even though we had been out all day in the blaring heat, Chuck Harris said he was going out that evening alligator hunting. I believe they went to the Ochlockonee River and they got a 12 foot gator. On Saturday I shed with Gordon Beal and his friends from Alabama. We caught seven ounder, three sheepshead, two Spanish and four nice trout. We shed for reds with no success and should have spent that time on the ats. We had a good high tide and we probably caught and released 50 small trout. As it cools off we should start having some good shing. Scallop season is in for a few more weeks and now is the time to go to Keaton Beach. Kids are back in school so the weekday crowds are gone and there are still plenty of scallops. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Also drink plenty of water and Gatorade. Good luck and good shing!By MARJ LAWLast Wednesday morning, like most Wednesdays, women of the range got together to practice their handgun skills. Anyone can join in. We arrive at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office range in Sopchoppy somewhere between 9:30 and 10 a.m. and we all help each other understand range safety and share knowledge of handguns. Our friend, Jim, is at the pistol range too. He debates whether to shoot two or three of his handguns. If he shoots all three, he reasons, hed have to clean all three later! Cleaning takes time, I sympathize. Sure does, he replies. And then Im going to have to clean the magazines too. Thats why I only use one mag at a time. The magazines in the .22 pistols get dirty really fast, especially with those lead bullets! Now, I always make a big deal about cleaning handguns, especially the .22s. They seem to be particularly sensitive to dirt and will often have a failure to feed or ejection failure if they are dirty. I find the .22 Rugers more difficult to clean than the higher caliber guns because assembly and disassembly seems more complicated than I think it should be. Thats just my opinion. But cleaning the magazines? Frankly, it never occurred to me. And the very thought of it makes my heart sink to my toes. Jim can tell this is a new idea. Its not hard, he says kindly. Do you want me to show you how to take them apart? We women are always ready to learn. We cluster around him. Jim takes an ordinary pen and points to the end of the magazine opposite the end where you put in bullets. This is called the floorplate. See this depression? he asks. Put the point of the pen into it and press down. You are pushing down the nib that locks it into this hole. Now you can slide the floorplate of the magazine to open it. When you do this, cover the hole with your hand because a spring inside is coiled up and ready to jump out. Carefully pull out the spring by taking out the follower button (it looks like a small screw) which attaches to the spring assembly to the magazine. Do this by sliding the button up the slot and it will fall right out. Now you can take out the spring and the attached follower piece. Now, look into the magazine. Notice the black flecks? Thats dirt! And you want it out! Take a clean patch or white Tshirt piece and attach it to a cleaning rod. Dip it into the solvent you use to clean your gun. Now, swipe the inside of the magazine until it is all cleaned out. With a clean patch, clean out the excess fluid. Otherwise, the oils will attract more dirt. To put it back together, just reverse how you took it apart. The only difficult part is getting the spring in place. Its long in a .22, and quite strong! Gently push it down into the magazine. Hold it down and in place while you slide back the floor plate. Dont let that spring get away from you! It can fly a good distance! I went home and tried it myself. Sure enough, after two years of shooting, all five magazines from my .22 were dirty, dirty, dirty. By the fourth magazine, I had the procedure down pretty well. And remember your safety glasses, just in case. Only our cats know if one spring got away from me and went sailing down the hallway. And theyre not telling.Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsHigh temperatures make shing toughYou also need to clean your magazines HOME ON THE RANGE From The DockBY CAPT.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 Page 11A UnderwaterWakullaBy Dr. J Hess With Labor Day behind us for this year, summer is beginning to wind down. There are only a few short weeks until Fall of cially begins. While it may not feel like Fall is approaching with the hot and humid days we have, it is. Now is a good time to begin thinking about what you will do with your boat over the cooler months will it be in dry dock, trailered to your home, left in the water or many other possibilities? A little preparation now can make the transition much easier. When you are out and about on your boat, take time to inventory what you have and what you may need. Make sure items are in good working condition and not damaged. Note items that you may need to purchase many retailers are clearancing items this time of year. For important items, it is a good idea to have a spare for easy replacement. In the spirit of Labor Day, members of Flotilla 12 are holing a fellowship meeting this month. Members are encouraged to bring their families and come together for a meal Sunday Sept. 7. While we may not always be seen out on the water, we work hard to educate boaters about being safe on the water, how to handle the unexpected and how to be good stewards of our waterways. Several members held a ramp day this past Saturday inspecting boats for required safety equipment and providing information about safe boating. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux.net then contact our Flotilla Staff Ofcer for Human Resources, Raye Crews, at Rayec@uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at Duanet@uscgaux.net.

I was just swimming in the gulf in bath-tub water. Based on previous years experience, however, we expect the diving community to shift its focus. After the summer break, the kids are back in school, and business in general is busy again. This usually means less time for the weekend diving trip. It is yet still too hot out for the cave diving community to emerge, as they prefer the colder days in the then warm springs. For the Diving Center this means a less hectic daily schedule, trying to satisfy the customers on the spot. We still have long days of checking equipment, and lling tanks, but start again on long-term projects. With the increase in personnel, and services offered, so rose the demand for our IT infrastructure. We barely fended off a cyber-attack from China earlier in the year. Our server was not breached, but everything became really slow. The whole system just received an upgrade, with additional high-end safety systems (called re walls), and faster network connections. The transition went without a glitch. We could now manage over two hundred employees at multiple locations not that we would want to. Gone are the days of simple home-style computer equipment. We learn, and we grow, and it is a lot of fun. Unlike the general trend, however, to have all the data in the cloud and internet-based, we stick to the basics, for safety reasons. The tank-logging database with customer information, and the cash register, will not get connected to the internet at all, and never have been. And, as any cave diver will know, everything has a back up, ready to be deployed should the rst unit fail. The nancial investment is substantial, however the cost of failure much higher. Our hydro-station, the pressure-testing facility, is about to receive the latest addition. It has been in the works for over a year, but had to be put off during the busy summer. Although we had had help from four interns, there was no time to bring this urgent project to its conclusion so far. With the new addition, we will be able to test tanks up to the size of Kasks (the welding tanks). Once nalized, we will also get our drive-through back. Research at the center happens all year long. Four long-term projects, and two mediumterm projects are running simultaneously. It is tedious, and usually happens quietly in the background, but the next year promises to become interesting. The Center is much more than just a dive store, as the avid follower of Greggs column has gure out by now. In fact, the store is by far the smallest component. Speaking of Gregg, he is nally taking some well-deserved time off, and travels cross-country to Alaska. Compared to Florida, Alaska is probably about as diagonally opposite as it can possibly be, and not just in a geographical sense. The American Academy of Underwater Science (AAUS) presents Gregg with a life-time award for his contribution to underwater science long overdue if you ask me. Unlike most self-promoters who are rather vocal about their perceived achievements, as long as I have known Gregg, he has always been quiet about his contributions. Especially at times like these, we need more people like him, dont you think? WCSO patrols weekend water activities Special to The NewsOn Aug. 30, while assigned to the WCSO Marine Unit, Detective Richard Moon conducted several area checks located along the Wakulla River. These checks included local businesses/boat ramp checks. While patrolling the river, he made contact with Lt. Travis Hooker with FWC. They worked together in regards to ensuring safe vessel operations. There was minimal boat traf c on the river this day. Two verbal warnings were given today in reference to unsafe boating operations. These operations included wake and load capacity. Both subjects were from out of town on vacation and were instructed on proper operating and safety procedure. Detective Moon had positive contact with all citizens and was advised by several homeowners located on the river that they were glad to see the Marine Unit on the water. Saturday on the Wakulla River: Total area checks: 11 Business Checks: 2 Bridges/Boat Ramp Checks: 9 Total contacts: 65 Citizen contacts: 53 Juvenile contacts: 12 Total Boat stops: 2 Boat safety checks: 2 Arrests: 0 Citations: 0 Warnings: 2 Verbal Reports: 0 On Aug. 31,WCSO Marine Unit saw a steady stream of water vessel traffic. An estimated 300 boats/ kayaks were encountered on the water. Even with the high volume of traf c, spirits were high and no obvious violations or issues were observed. Lt. Brad Taylor encountered a pod of manatee in both the Wakulla River and St. Marks River. Warnings to nearby vessel trafc were given as to the presence of the manatee and a vigilant watch was maintained until they were safely out of traf c patterns. Staff at Shell Island Marina was pleased with the Sheriffs Of ce boat being moored at their establishment and they extended an open invitation to us for anytime we need or want to tie up at their docks. All-in-all contacts were positive as usual and the public enjoys seeing their sheriffs office on the water. The boat is once again moored at Shell Island Marina due to anticipated high holiday traf c volume and the watch order for the boat remains in effect. Sunday on the Wakulla and St. Marks Rivers: Contacts: 171 Calls for service: 0 Boat ramp checks: 6 Bridge checks: 5 On Monday, Sept. 1, Water Patrol started at Shell Island Fish Camp, continuing out the St. Marks River to the area of the ats and shoals off St. Marks. Sgt. Whaley and Deputy Hudson made contact with a boat that was disabled, however the owner was able to power back up and return to the boat ramp. The patrol continued up the Wakulla River where they encountered many canoes and kayaks along with several party boats. They conducted approximately 50 boating safety checks. Everyone was in compliance with all safety requirements. One boater did not have his registration and was advised he needed to keep it in his possession.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBUSINESS NEWS By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsWhen you walk into the old store at Shell Island Fish Camp, youre walking back in time. This place is one of the oldest sh camps in Wakulla County. Shell Islands original building was built in the mid50s, according to the owners, Jimmy and Sherie Bevis. Theyve been helping run the business for about a decade, but took it over a few years ago from Jimmys aunt and uncle, Allen and Ruthie Hobbs, when they retired. It has been in the Hobbs family for 35 years. Its pretty much the same, says Sherie. Weve done a little refurbishing here and there, but what you see here is pretty much what it was like 35 years ago. Large, lidded jars, with fading logos Toms and Lance, sit on a low shelf lled with crackers and candy bars, easy for kids to reach. On bulletin boards, and framed along the walls are old photographs of shermen over the years with their catch. One photograph shows a giant alligator hanging from a rope on the front porch of the store. Prior to the Hobbs, it was owned by Rufus Bullock, and before that it was owned by Bo Lynn. Lynn died in a goose hunting accident, along with friend Kermit Jacobs, and Bos dog, Butch, in the days before modern weather forecasting, reads a historic marker located at the entrance to the camp. The store opens at 6:30 a.m. every morning selling bull minnows, live shrimp, frozen bait and anything you need to go shing. They ( shermen) are usually waiting when we get here, Sherie smiles. And then theyre off shing, and things quiet down a little. On a hot summer day in late August, kids run around barefoot with their shing poles and cast nets in hand, casting in the river or the creek. Outside the old store is a long, narrow porch where regular visitors, customers, and newcomers sit and talk about the news of the day, which usually includes shing and weather. One of the services offered at the camp is boat rentals. They have two kinds of boats customers can rent, center console and pontoon. Both boat types are designed for navigating the ats of the Gulf. Center console boats can hold up to ve people, and pontoon boats hold up to six. Prices start at $160 per day. If someone is interested in boating for the day, but unfamiliar with the area, Sherie says someone will show you where to go, and how to navigate the buoy markers in the river. The boys will take you out for a preride, and show you how things work, she says. If you want to hire a guide, one can be arranged. She says there are a few around, but theyre limited. They run about $100 a day, in addition to the boat rentals. The best shing is in the spring and fall, according to Sherie. Fish are kinda like bears, they hibernate in the winter, she says. In the spring, they are eager to eat, and in the fall they are fattening up for the winter ahead, she explains. Those are our busiest times here. They also offer mechanic services and boat storage, where customers have kept their crafts for decades. In keeping with its historic nature, they have the oldest working forklift in Florida, a 1974 Clark.. The camp also offers lodging, with three different kinds of rentals available. There is a motel, with regular rooms; park models, with small kitchens; and cabins, which include full kitchens and screened porches. All rentals have heat and air. In addition, they offer camp spots for RVs, and tents, with hookups. In the early days of the sh camp, when Bullock owned it, a brochure advertised, Shell Island is located on the banks of the beautiful Wakulla River, only 19 miles from Tallahassee. Take U.S. 319 to one of Americas outstanding shing resorts. Cabins rented for just $5, and the phone number had only three digits, 996. Prices are still reasonable, with motel rooms starting at $55, and a full cabin for a family of four for only $96. They can, and do, accommodate large groups for retreats and reunions. There is a large green grassy area, a playground with swings for kids, along with picnic tables, grills and lots of large shady oak trees. Its a place where regular customers run a tab, and are sent a bill at the end of the month. They employ ve full-time employees to operate and manage the marina, camp store, lodging and boat services. The term Old Florida generally denotes Florida the way it was at least two generations ago, writes Florida Secrets website. There is no need to go on a scavenger hunt to nd Old Florida, because its right here in Wakulla County at Shell Island Fish Camp.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 Page 15AThe entire team at the Wakulla Senior Citizens Center is so very proud to announce that this years Queen of the Senior Center is Jerline Cooper. Ms. Jeri, as she is affectionately known, is so deserving of this honor, and we could not be happier for her. Ms. Jeri has been a huge blessing to this community for so many years. She has worked tirelessly for many organizations to help raise much-needed support so that the people of Wakulla could bene t in some way. Her passion and care for people is obvious in the rst few minutes of a conversation with her. She loves to talk about her family and friends and how she feels blessed to have so many people who care for her. Her dedication and years of service to this county are to be commended, and we are proud to have her as the centers representative. She will represent the Senior Center over the next year at various festivals and events throughout the county. The team at the Senior Center wishes to thank Ms. Jeri for her hard work, dedication, and above all, her smile that always brings joy to those around her. By JERRY EVANSOf the Senior CenterAs we begin to look at the end of summer and usher in the coolness of fall, we tend to remember those special summer memories that made the season so great. Here at the Senior Center, thinking back on the month of July, we remember not only the hot days, but the fun times and laughter that filled the center. These active seniors managed to throw a huge Fourth of July party, play drums, do a little belly dancing and celebrate Christmas! On July 3, our seniors were treated to some great gospel music in the morning, then enjoyed a terri c Fourth of July party complete with hot dogs off the grill and ice cream. The room was lled with red, white, and blue as everyone dressed for the occasion. The center was decorated with patriotic colors and ags. The Drumming Circle that took place in July was not only a blast for all those who participated but it was also a great learning experience. Kent Hutchinson taught us all the art of drumming as an actual form of communication. Kent will be back in October for another round. The month of July also brought the Dancing Divas to the center. These artistic ladies entertained the crowd with belly dancing, complete with costumes. These ladies were beautiful, funny, entertaining, and each had their own story. The real fun started when a few staff members decided to give it a try! Christmas in July was a huge success. This being our 19th year produced the biggest crowd to date. With the renovation to the dining room complete an interior wall was taken down which enabled us to expand our capacity considerably we were able to increase the number of tables and chairs and still maintain the comfort and functionality of the room. Our staff served well over 200 plates of traditional Christmas dinner complete with turkey, dressing, and all the xins. The entertainment was exceptional as was the food. Our silent auction boasted lots of very nice items which lined the hallways. R.H. Carter, past executive director, even read his special version of The Night Before Christmas, and, as always, entertained the crowd. The funds raised will go directly towards maintaining our programs and services here, especially those that feed our homebound seniors. Our Meals on Wheels program is one of the most crucial for our community and it is through the generosity of people that support events such as Christmas in July that enable us to carry forward with such important services. We can never overstate our gratitude to this community for the support we receive from all of our friends of the center. The way people choose to give in support of this senior citizens center is overwhelming, as was witnessed at Christmas in July. Those of us directly involved with the centers daily activities are truly blessed to see the speci c impact on peoples lives as a result of the communitys generosity. As we grow and expand, our vision and mission will remain and we will continue to be a place to enjoy where our seniors can age gracefully, comfortably, and independently, and together, we can all learn more about how to Celebrate Life!

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comFor the most part trees have past 2014s blooming period in Wakulla County as autumns beginning will be here in less than three weeks. The last weeks of summer are when next years seed are maturing, hidden under the leafy canopies. Blending into the foliage background has its advantages. It is easy to pass unnoticed and left undisturbed to await the following spring and germination. The native Wax Myrtles, Morella cerifera, take a different approach, producing many obvious and easily available berries which contain small hard seed. Birds and other small animals eat the berries and deposit the seed over a wide area. Wax myrtle trees are a member of the Myricaceae plant family with the words base, Myrica, originating from a Greek word for fragrance. A family member of this plant is found in a majority of the inhabited world. Sometimes known commonly as a bayberry, it has been collected commercially to produce the popular candle scent. Before the advent of massmarket candles with artificial scents, wax myrtles were used in many North Florida homes. The wax myrtle is a native Florida plants. It is a small tree or large shrub which can be grown anywhere in the state. Wax myrtle does well in a moist environment. It can grow in poorly drained soils, but grows better in drier soil conditions. This durable plant can serve many uses in the landscape. Wax myrtles have male and female owers produced on separate plants. Female flowers grow in close bunches producing light green round fruits about an eighth of an inch in diameter. The fruits are coated with a thick, bluish wax useful in making candles. Wax myrtles can reach a height of 25 feet. Their leaves are evergreen narrow at the base and broader toward the upper end of the leaves. About midway up the leaf toward the tip, coarse teeth appear on the leaf edges. Wax myrtles produce suckers, small plants which sprout from the roots. The suckers grow into large clumps, or clusters, and eventually grow into very large, dense thickets. Suckers can be removed from around the main trunk to produce an attractive, small tree in manicured landscapes. The trunk of the wax myrtle is grayish white in color similar to northern birch. These trees are used extensively in patio planting and as landscape screens. Wax myrtles can be grown from seeds, cuttings, and simple layering techniques. Seeds can be started in a mixture of equal parts sand and peat moss. Another method for propagating wax myrtle is to dig established plants during the winter months. Cut the plants back to within a few inches of the ground. Dig out the root clumps and set them in containers. In a few months, the plant will regrow. A small tree 10 to 12 feet in height will take a few years to grow using this method. Being a native plant, wax myrtles are well suited to Wakulla Countys drier soils and climate. The plant is cold hardy, salt tolerant, and relatively free of diseases and insects. The only one serious pest of wax myrtle is a caterpillar which chews leaves and ties terminal leaves together. This native plant is the obvious source for nutrition and cover for many of Wakulla Countys wild residents.

But the game was far from a blowout in fact, with only 2.9 seconds remaining in the half, Wakulla was ahead on the scoreboard 11-6 and the Florida High Seminoles were threatening to score and take the lead. Solid defensive play batted away a pass and kept Wakullas lead. A very athletic Florida High team was also hampered with a number of turnovers, including a couple caused by linebacker Antonio Morris, including one play in which he ripped the ball away from a receiver. Turnovers were the difference, said Wakulla Head Coach Scott Klees. They had four of them and we had none. And we managed to take advantage of those turnovers. Besides the turnovers, Klees credited his teams summer conditioning with keeping them ahead of a Florida High team that was obviously wilting by the end of the game. It wasnt depth, Klees said. By the end of the game we had ve or six kids going both ways and so did they. I really think it was our summer conditioning. Klees was pleased with his offense that generated 500 yards and scored 40 points. Quarterback Feleipe Franks was 11 of 16 passing with 226 yards and a touchdown, and he ran for another touchdown. Wide receivers Keith Gavin caught ve passes for 131 yards and Kelton Donaldson had three catches for 60 yards, including a 2-point conversion. On defense, Monterious Loggins led the way with 9 tackles, and Hunter Hurst had 5 tackles. Klees praised special teams for their play kickoffs, kicks and punts saying they excelled in all aspects of play. GAME RECAP Florida High fumbled on their rst possession of the game, and Wakulla recovered at the 17.

On the ensuing kickoff, Wakulla lost Jake McCarl with an ankle injury. During that series, Monterious Loggins stripped the receiver of the ball, and the War Eagles took over near mid eld. Franks connected to Donaldson on a bomb that gave them rst and goal, but they couldnt convert and kicked a eld goal to go up 11-0. At the end of the rst quarter, Florida High took a punt to give them eld possession at the 44 and they mounted a drive that culminated in a touchdown in the second quarter. The PAT was no good to make it 11-6. Wakulla drove deep into Florida territory and had a 4th down and 3 at the 5 but the ball bounced out of the receivers hands and Florida High drove down the eld with time running out in the half. With 2.9 seconds, the Seminoles were at the Wakulla 5, but couldnt score. On the opening drive of the 3rd quarter, Wakulla took over on its own 35, Morris carried it to mid eld, then Gavin caught a pass and dove to the 1. Morris carried it in from there, and Donaldson caught a pass for a 2-point conversion to go up 19-6. Florida High wouldnt go away, and their quarterback Ronnie Harrison, an Alabama commitment as a safety, showed his athleticism, leading a drive that nished with a 25-yard run for a score. The point-after was no good and the score was 1912. On the next series, Wakulla was forced to punt from its own end zone, and Florida took over at the Wakulla 39. Another Florida fumble, recovered by Demarcus Lindsay, and Gavin caught a pass over the middle and fought off Seminole defenders until he was pushed out at the 1. Herbert Franklin caught a TD pass and the extra point was good, 26-12. Another Florida fumble gave Wakulla the ball at the 26, and Donaldson hauled in a catch at the 4 and took a big hit but held on. On the next play, Franks looked to Gavin, completely drawing the defense that way, then ran the ball in for a score to make it 33-12. Bucky McGlammery came in as quarterback on the next series and, after a couple of running plays, the War Eagles had driven to the 12. Lindsay took the ball in from there, and Caleb Fell, backup kicker to Franks, kicked the extra point to make it 40-12. NEXT UP: NAVARRE Whens the last time Wakulla was underdog two weeks in a row? Klees asked, speaking of Navarre High School after Florida High had been picked to win against Wakulla. Navarres a bigger school, ranked in the Top 10 in Division 6A, plus theres a threehour ride for the War Eagles to travel there. Last year, Wakulla won on a last-second TD catch from Franks to Gavin in the corner of the end zone. Its going to be a good test, Klees said.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 Page 3B By MARTY COHEN For months leading up to the 2013 season, Florida head coach Will Muschamp told anyone who would listen, This is Jeffs team. Indeed after a protracted battle with Jacoby Brissett the previous year, sophomore Jeff Driskel earned the starting quarterback spot and although the Gators won an impressive 11 games, Driskel was mostly the caretaker of a modest offensive attack. A season later it was going to be different. With more experience, and Brissett no longer in the picture having transferred to North Carolina State, Driskel was handed the keys to the kingdom, directing an offense expected to produce considerably more than the previous season. The plan was to open up the playbook and take advantage of Driskels physical ability. Best laid plans, eh? Perhaps symbolic of the entire disastrous fall, Driskel threw for a careerhigh 291 yards in the Game Two at Miami, but a pair of awful interceptions undermined the effort in a sloppy, five-turnover, gut-wrenching loss to the Hurricanes. There would be no redemption the following contest. Barely ve minutes into the SEC home opener against Tennessee, Driskel suffered a broken leg while being hit as he released a pass that was picked off in the at and returned for a touchdown. Season over. So much for Jeffs team. We all know what followed, the brief run of success behind backup Tyler Murphy before he got hurt as well, as the Gators limped home with a hard-to-fathom sevengame losing streak, resulting in the worst campaign since the infamous 0-10-1 debacle way back in 1979. The fall guy became offensive coordinator Brent Pease, replaced by Kurt Roper, who brought a high-tempo, successful scheme from Duke. But the more things change, the more they stayed the same, because Muschamp wasnt going anywhere despite some strident cries from a faction of the fan base, and neither was Driskel. In fact, in theory Florida is in the same place it was 12 months earlier, for while Muschamp has cut back on the rhetoric, the Gators are once again Jeffs team. Both Muschamp and Driskel have plenty to prove in 2014, the overall plight of the team intertwined with the fate of the head coach and the production of the quarterback. The Gators need Driskel to perform at a premium level, and so does Muschamp the two are inexorably tied together. This isnt much of a deviation from many high-profile programs, since the current milieu of college football revolves around the quarterback. But given Muschamps slippery footing, plus the up-and-down nature of Driskels play, the link between quarterback and head coach is a critical, albeit precarious, one for Florida.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gators By TIM LINAFELT The numbers say that Mario Edwards Jr. had five tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack in the BCS National Championship Game. On paper, thats a nice, if not eye-popping, performance. Edwards teammates, though, say that his effort in corralling Auburns run-heavy offense in Pasadena was a huge reason the Seminoles were able to complete their comeback and win the national title. He played his behind off, FSU left tackle Cameron Erving said. He realized his potential in that game. It was a Come to Jesus (moment) for him. Edwards, a defensive end who stands a startling 6-3, 294 pounds, arrived at FSU as the topranked high school football player in the country. With a highly-touted defensive end comes expectations for a high sack total. And the numbers say that, so far, Edwards hasnt delivered. Despite two years as a starter, he only has ve sacks on his career ledger. Those numbers, though, dont tell the whole story. Not even close. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher bristled recently when a reporter asked about Edwards 3.5 sacks last year and perhaps hinted that Edwards had a disappointing year. Sacks dont equate to greatness, Fisher said. Youd better go watch that lm. If you watch that lm, that guys a heck of a football player. Fishers early tenure was marked by a steady stream of defensive ends who compiled gaudy sack totals. Brandon Jenkins, Bjoern Werner and Cornellius Carradine all racked up big-time numbers on the way to becoming NFL draft picks. Fisher insists that Edwards can rush the passer just ne, but that his value to Florida States defense is measured in more than just pressure and sacks. Hes so big that opposing tight ends are almost useless when trying to block him. And hes fast enough, for a man who weighs 300 pounds, that he can often simply rush past an opposing tackle. And, Fisher says, Edwards is athletic enough to drop back into coverage on occasion. That guy there is as big and athletic as any of the ends weve had, Fisher said. And that other group, hes as good as any one of those guys. It was all on full display at the Rose Bowl, when Edwards could often be found overwhelming his blocker or at the bottom of the tackle pile. Edwards and the Seminoles limited the Tigers to 232 rushing yards a high number, but well below Auburns 329 yards-per-game average. Late in the fourth quarter, Edwards perfectly sniffed out an Auburn read-option play. He then stayed stride for stride and juke for juke with 6-1, 210-pound quarterback Nick Marshall before bringing him down for a deep loss. What a great play by a 280-pound defensive lineman, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit said at the time. Out in space against Nick Marshall, a former point guard and a dynamic athlete, and the big fella holds his own. Added FSU running back Karlos Williams: Hes a different beast. Sacks may not equal greatness, but that doesnt mean Edwards doesnt want them. He says he missed out on six to seven sacks last year just by not knowing enough of the playbook, being out of position or being tired. I wasnt consistent, he said, and those are things I can control. Edwards doesnt plan to make those mistakes this year. I want double digits, he said.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 4, 2014 Page 5BBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 29 With the unof cial beginning of campaign season just around the corner, Florida voters headed to the polls this week to choose their nominees for governor and seats in the Legislature. Or, at least, to nish the predetermined coronations in many of those races. There never seemed to be any real danger that either of the leading gubernatorial candidates would lose their primaries. And virtually every incumbent on the ballot Tuesday was still standing on Wednesday. But the election wasnt the only battle that moved into a new phase. As candidates began to turn their attention to the broader electorate, opponents of the states de facto school-voucher program were going from the court of public opinion to the actual courts. Almost four months after the Legislature followed through on a promise to expand eligibility for the voucher program, groups opposed to the move led a lawsuit that could lead to the entire system being overturned. NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT For the most part, there were few surprises in the primaries Tuesday night. Republican Gov. Rick Scott and former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, now a Democrat, cruised through primaries against lesser-known candidates. Crist easily defeated former Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich and was of cially welcomed by his new party as its nominee. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a congresswoman from Broward County, praised Crist and running-mate Annette Taddeo as working-class champions. Charlie and Annette have embraced policies that will help Floridas middle-class families, a stark contrast to the current governor, Republican Rick Scott, who is beholden to special interests and radical tea party ideology, she said in a statement. Scott handily defeated two obscure GOP opponents, Yinka Abosede Adeshina and Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder. But the Scott teams primary focus has long been on Crist. The next few months are about talk versus action, Scott said. That means Florida will have a choice between a governor who sent our state into a tailspin and a governor who gets results. In a marginally competitive statewide race, former Department of Children and Families Secretary George Sheldon beat House Minority Leader Perry Thurston in the Democratic primary for attorney general. I believe the attorney general is the peoples lawyer, not the governors lawyer, and not the Legislatures lawyer, Sheldon told supporters during a victory party at the Wine Loft Wine Bar in Tallahassee. Help me give Pam Bondi the job she really wants, as an anchor on FOX News. Bondi wasted little time in both congratulating Sheldon and challenging him to a debate. The voters will have a clear choice between candidates in this election, and they deserve to hear directly from us on the distinct difference in visions and leadership that each candidate will offer to the attorney generals Of ce, Bondi said in a prepared statement. Races in the House provided the sole state-level incumbent to go down and the usual bit of Florida elections drama. In Central Florida, Rep. Ricardo Rangel, D-Kissimmee, was defeated in his bid for a second term by John Cortes, vice chairman of the Democratic Hispanic Caucus of Florida. State Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant seemed just ne with Cortes beating the incumbent. From his time as a police of cer to his extensive work as an activist in Osceola County, John has always put his fellow community members ahead of himself, Tant said in a statement. I look forward to working with John to ensure that the residents of District 43 continue to have representation that puts the middle class rst this fall. SCHOOLING THE ELECTORATE Scott didnt wait until he had of cially dispatched his challengers to start rolling out what will clearly be one of the central themes of his campaign. He unveiled an education agenda Monday that included promises to review the number of tests being administered to Florida students and to take further steps to rein in the cost of college if he wins a second term in November. We want to make sure that our students have every opportunity to succeed in the classroom and in their careers, and we want to make sure our teachers have every tool they need to make that possible, Scott said. The call for an investigation of standardized testing is noteworthy, given that Republicans interested in education reform have long looked at assessments as a way to judge how well schools are educating children. In 2011, Scott signed a bill that more closely tied teacher pay to student performance on standardized tests A brochure outlining Scotts proposals seemed to place the blame for the amount of testing on local school districts. But Kathleen Oropeza, cofounder of the advocacy group Fund Education Now, said blaming local school districts was disingenuous, because many of the tests they require are tied to state laws. Districts will have to create tests for some courses under the teacher-pay law that Scott signed, Oropeza said. On higher education, Scott said he would push for a requirement that colleges outline the costs of textbooks and other materials before students register for classes. In his of cial capacity, the governor joined Education Commissioner Pam Stewart on a jaunt across the state to welcome students back to school. Crists campaign cried foul on that. Floridians should not be fooled by Rick Scotts shameful, taxpayer-funded campaign events this week, spokesman Brendan Gil llan said in a statement. Scotts back-to-school tour should be an apology tour for the $4.8 billion he wanted to cut and the $1.3 billion he did cut from education. WERE NOT GONNA TAKE IT Thats all I can stands; I cant stands no more, the cartoon character Popeye used to say and a coalition of groups including the states largest teachers union essentially said the same thing this week in launching a legal assault on Floridas de facto school-voucher program. The lawsuit comes after the Legislature approved a bill this spring that would expand eligibility for the program and increase the value of scholarships given to participating students. While one of the central claims of the lawsuit that the program gets in the way of the states responsibility to provide a quality education to all children could have been made for years now, those ling the challenge said the expansion forced their hand. Ron Meyer, an attorney for the groups, said while education advocates were willing to allow the program to go forward initially, this has become an industry. Its a money-maker for scholarship-funding organizations, Meyer said. And its a program that we think is a dereliction of the constitutional requirement (to provide public education). The Tax Credit Scholarship Program, which could raise as much as $357.8 million this year, provides tax credits to companies that donate money to nonpro t entities that pay for children to go to private schools. Without the scholarship program, critics say, those tax dollars could be used to help fund public education. But supporters say the program provides better opportunities for lowor middle-income children trapped in failing public schools. Republicans, who led the charge to institute and then broaden the voucher program, saw things a bit differently. Those attacking the scholarships were actually the special interests. This lawsuit is just the latest attack on parental choice by an entrenched education establishment more concerned about protecting the status quo than providing families the opportunities afforded by a great education, said former Gov. Jeb Bush, who signed the legislation creating the program and is still an in uential gure in the states education debates. STORY OF THE WEEK: Primary elections cleared the way for general elections, including the long-awaited battle between Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist for control of the Governors Mansion. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Were not the Rick Scott campaign. We cant go whenever and whatever we want on TV. We have to make choices. So why would we make the choice to go spend a bunch of money in a primary that we know were going to win? Steve Schale, a consultant for the Crist campaign, on why the former governor essentially ignored primary opponent Nan Rich.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)The inevitable battle begins -Janet The Waku l la News For local news and photos For local news and photoswww.thewakullanews.com www.thewakullanews.com HOME COUNTRYTime when thoughts turn to speculatingBy SLIM RANDLESThe speculating began Thursday again. You see, when its either too hot or too cold or too windy or the snows too deep or we just get tired of thinking about work, we speculate. Its one of our favorite sports. Theres speculating about why Sarah down at the Read Me Now book store has a section called Love and other Fiction. Shes never given us satisfaction on that score, and we even sent ol Doc over to ask her. He struck out. Then theres the speculating about Steves cabin. Well, not the cabin itself, as every cowboy needs a hole-up spot, but we still speculate about Steves turret. Not every cabin has a turret. Steves does. Sure we asked him. He just looked at us and said, If you had a cabin, wouldnt you build a turret, too? Well, yes, but that still doesnt But this summer, our speculating settled on Mrs. Doc once more. We know from written-down historical fact that she must have a first name. Doesnt everyone? But with Mrs. Doc, she just introduces herself to people as Mrs. Doc. Doc just calls her Honey, and he wont tell us her name, either. He says its one of those old-fashioned womens names and she doesnt like it. I mean, even the other ladies in the Ladies Literary League and Garden Society dont know. So the speculating goes on. Herb even walked up behind Mrs. Doc one day in the store and said, Hi there, Ermaline. Didnt work. So the speculating ran to names like Abyssinia, Charity, Murgatroyd, Sassafras, Chlorophyllis and Fred. Bounced them off Doc. He just shook his head. Not even close, he said. Maybe we could bribe someone at the drivers license department in the city Lets speculate on that for a while. When you listen to the Home Country Hour podcast at www.slimrandles. com, please remember its not polite to ridicule old people.

Twenty-two local children participated in an ice cream social at the Wakulla County Extension Of ce as part of the 21st Century Youth Program. Before Extension Agent Shelley Swenson demonstrated ice-cream creation technique, 4-H Program Assistant Eric Westbrook explained how the science works. Westbrook said an agitation technique will turn the liquid into ice cream when a sealed bag of cream and sugar is shaken inside of a larger bag filled with ice and salt. He incorporated a metrology lesson the scienti c study of measurement as the children measured ingredients on their own, and then explained how the salt lowers the freezing point of water. Swenson worked with children on proper table settings, using real plates and glasses, to limit paper products ending up in land lls. She also instructed program participants on etiquette that included table manners and politely seating the ladies. Westbrook said the summer-long 21st Century Youth program has included gardening, insect identi cation, geology, geography, culinary science, microbiology and much more.

By LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsOne of the oldest cities in Germany, and currently the 4th largest, Cologne, has been drawing visitors since 50 A.D., when it was of cially founded. As your cruise ship docks Cologne Cathedral, a UNESCO world heritage site, is already visible soaring above the city skyline. From ruins uncovered after World War II, there is evidence of a Christian church in this location as early as the 4th century. The plans were drawn, and the foundation laid for the current cathedral in1248. Six hundred years later it was completed. Built in sections so that the cathedral could be used, by 1560 about 90% of the total planned building had a roof, including temporary roofs over the nave and transept. In 1842, with growing romantic enthusiasm for the middle ages coupled with the financial support of the Prussian Court after a gap of almost 300 years construction resumed on the transept portion of the cathedral. Completed by 1880, for four years it had the distinction of being the worlds tallest building. Inside the cathedral, enshrined in an elaborately carved ornamental gold tomb are the purported remains of the Three Wise Men, The centerpiece of this amazing cathedral, the relics were given to the Archbishop of Cologne in 1164 by the Holy Roman Emperor Fredrick Barbarossa. Built in both the Gothic and neo gothic styles, this gem attracts over 20,000 visitors a year. Free to visit, summer hours are from 6am until 10pm. A separate admission applies for the treasury, full of golden icons from the churches history, and the tower, with its birds eye view of the city. Guided tours are available 10am to 2:30 Monday through Saturday in English for 7 euro. http://www. colognecathedral.net/ History-of-CologneCathedral.html Outside the cathedral, melodies ring out from street performers and various characters, some spray-painted head to toe, others in authentic period costumes, beckon you over to take photos with them, for a fee. During the war more than 72 percent of the city was destroyed, reducing the historic section to rubble. Rebuilt in the original style, a stroll along the cobblestone streets, through the old town, reveals many charming multihued buildings. Most were constructed with storage spaces above and the lower oors were devoted to shops. Today many of the buildings have been converted into pubs, restaurants and shops. Numbers prominently displayed on the buildings face indicate the year of construction and not the address. Addresses historically featured images of the owners occupation, rather than numbers. Today you can still see a whale prominently displayed, on the side of the building where a whaler once lived. Famous for Koelnischwasser, or eau de Cologne, fragrance has been produced here since 1709. Used liberally by Napoleon, in a time when bathing was uncommon, you can take home a bottle as a souvenir Primarily a modern city, Cologne has a long and storied past. The Cologne Cathedral, while struck 14 times during Allied bombing, was one of the one of few buildings left standing after World War II. And was completely reconstructed by 1965. Perfect for a short stop on a relaxing river cruise, enjoy the modern vibe of this historic marvel.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.
