CANDIDATE FORUMAT THE ONE-STOP COMMUNITY CENTERThursday, Sept. 25 at 7p.m.Sponsored bythe Wakulla Democratic Party & the Wakulla Republican Party. Special to The News The Northwest Florida Water Management Districts Governing Board approved a joint funding agreement with the United States Geological Survey for stage and discharge monitoring at 10 stations. This agreement includes the continuation of ve existing stations, as well as the initiation of ve new sites in support of the Districts development of minimum ows and levels (MFLs) for Wakulla Springs and St. Marks River Rise. Data collection plays an essential role in the Districts efforts to protect our water and natural resources, said Director of Resource Management Guy Gowens. By expanding and enhancing our monitoring network, were ensuring that we develop MFLs and implement other activities based on sound science and the best information available. Monitoring stations provide valuable water resource data that the District can use for a variety of purposes, including MFL development, consumptive use regulation, ood warning and other water resource management functions. The joint funding agreement includes $170,900 in district funding for Fiscal Year 2014-2015. The USGS is providing matching funds in the amount of $92,500 to cover the total operational cost of the network of $263,400. The cost of gauges along Spring Creek is being split evenly between the NWFWMD, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the City of Tallahassee. Under the agreement, ve new stations will be installed at Fisher Creek, Black Creek, St. Marks River Sink and two sites along Lost Creek to collect data that is vital to the development of effective and protective MFLs. The agreement also includes continued monitoring at Telogia Creek, Yellow River, Spring Creek and two sites along the Apalachicola River. The USGS will operate all 10 stations for continuous discharge and stage monitoring. The data will be updated in real time and available on the USGS website. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net Christmas was coming whether Marion Russ family was going through a hard time or not. When Russ (pictured below) was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, not only did she have to stop working, her husband had to stop working too, to care for her throughout chemotherapy and radiation treatments. With four children under age 14, just getting by was difcult enough. We found ourselves in a hard time, Russ said. When it came to Christmas, and the kids asked to make out their Christmas list, I broke down and cried. It broke my heart to tell them no. I had no earthy idea how to provide Christmas for them. Russ said she was not aware of Operation Santa until some friends involved with the organization submitted her name. Thanks to them, my children had a Christmas, Russ said, who met with volunteers for a brief interview. The Wakulla charity provided toys, books, makeup and CDs the children had requested. As Russ completed her treatments, she wanted to give back in some way. Financially I still wasnt able would like to donate money back to the organization, she said. But in my heart, I appreciated everything they did, so I volunteered my time. That was my way to give back for them saving my familys Christmas. While Russ is the Relay for Life chair this year, she is still making time to volunteer again, and encourages others in the community to donate time, money, gifts, or to sponsor a family even multiple families if community members are blessed with the means to do that. Its a really good cause, she said. A lot of people with sickness or unemployment cant provide Christmas. Finding a doll under tree brightens their day, and eases the burden to know an organization out there give kids a Christmas. It might not be a big Christmas but a Christmas for a kid that puts a smile on their face. Operation Santa Wakulla, an extension of the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth, helped 300 local families (1,100 individuals) have a happy Christmas last season. There have been major changes to Operation Santa Wakulla this year, and organizers want the community donors, volunteers and applicants to be aware of the changes. Would you believe that right here in our beautiful county, the gifts provided by the Operation Santa project are the only gifts children will receive? said Janice Eakin, director.

Carlos Lopez-Cantera. Gov. Christie, left, shakes hands before the rally. Jean Dykes, above, cheers.By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netGov. Rick Scott made a campaign stop in Crawfordville last week, stopping by the historic courthouse for a rally of local Republicans. Along with Scott was New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, head of the Republican Governors Association, who blasted Scotts Democratic challenger Charlie Crist as someone who doesnt know who he is or what hes for. Christie pointed out that Crist has been a Republican, an independent and a Democrat. Scott told the crowd, I have a major announcement: Crist is a slick politician, a smooth talker, and Im not... Hell promise you anything. The rally, held on Friday, Sept. 12, in the upstairs courtroom at the historic courthouse, was packed with Republican supporters, including a group of students from Wakulla Christian Academy who held up letters spelling FLORIDA and posters supporting the governor. It was hot, and the air conditioning in the old building couldnt keep up one student swooned in the heat and was taken to a chair to sit. U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, running for re-election against Democrat Gwen Graham, told the crowd that the policies of Rick Scott are working. Scott praised Southerland, and urged voters to return him to Washington. Also praised was Wakullas state representative, Halsey Beshears, who didnt expect to speak and joked that theres nothing like being asked to say a few words when youre unprepared. Beshears was returned to of ce without a challenger. Outside the courthouse, a handful of protestors held up signs critical of Scott and Republican policies. Nikki Barnes, president of the local Democratic Womens group, and Audrey Dutrow, a 14-year-old Wakulla High freshman, said one man in crowd called them heifers and threatened to take off his belt and spank them. Republican County Commissioner Jerry Moore reportedly told the protestors to Get a job. Scott and Christie started the day with a campaign rally at Capt. Andersons restaurant in Panama City. The Republican Governors Association has chipped in $8.5 million this summer toward Gov. Scotts re-election effort. Gov. Christie said the association, which he chairs, isnt done assisting the Sunshine States governor. The associations contributions, including $2 million earlier this month to the Scottaligned Lets Get to Work political committee, are a sign of the importance the national political parties place on the race between Scott and Crist. Recent polls show Scott with an edge over Crist, as Scotts campaign has spent heavily to highlight negatives about Crist, who was governor while Florida and the nation went into a recession. Crist ran as an independent for a U.S. Senate seat rather than seeking a second term as governor in 2010.Nicole Zema and The News Service of Florida contributed to this report.By MARGIE MENZELTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAWomens issues have taken center stage in the erce battle between Republican incumbent Steve Southerland and Democratic challenger Gwen Graham in a Northwest Florida congressional district. The issues range from a male-only Southerland fundraiser to dueling ads about the Republicans vote for a controversial version of the federal Violence Against Women Act. And with pundits saying the race is too close to call, the candidates in Congressional District 2 are trying to shore up support among women voters. The sprawling district includes 14 counties and ranges from heavily Democratic Leon and Gadsden counties, in the east, to the heavily Republican Panama City area and smaller, more rural counties to the west. Democrats are counting on the fact that theres more Democratic women than Republican women, and that these hot-button issues will draw younger, Democratic-leaning women to the polls at a higher rate, said University of South Florida political scientist Susan MacManus. Ultimately, Southerlands path to victory is turning Graham into more of a national Democrat than a Florida Panhandle Democrat, said Kyle Kondik, who analyzes House races for Larry Sabatos Crystal Ball project at the University of Virginia. The race has drawn high-profile coverage, with Graham daughter of former Gov. and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham considered one of the Democrats few chances to gain a seat in the Republican-controlled House this year. But it gained even more attention recently with the revelation that the host of a March fundraiser for Southerland had invited his guests to leave the misses at home while the men discussed policy over whiskey and cigars. But Kondik said the race is still Southerlands to lose. Based on the district fundamentals and just the year it is, I think that if Southerland loses, hell really have to look in the mirror about it, Kondik said.Womens issues add to congressional race Since 1973, the Tallahassee Memorial Family Medicine Residency Program has graduated 345 physicians, with 147 practicing in the Big Bend region. At TMH, we have a longstanding commitment of providing the best possible care and thats why we train our residents in a variety of specialties, including emergency care, gynecology and obstetrics and rural medicine. As a result, our graduates continue the tradition of compassionate medical care with their patients and thats why TMH is my hospital.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 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.netThe Wakulla County Board of Commissioners had two meetings last week one regular board meeting, and another to discuss the tentative budget and new millage rate at the rst of two public hearings. Both meetings featured deep discussion of Animal Controls startup adoption program. At the regular meeting, the board heard updates on the RESTORE Act, road and sidewalk projects, and the Big Bend Maritime Center. They also approved multiple paving projects and rate resolutions, and amended the litter ordinance. BUDGET, MILLAGE RATE At the tentative budget hearing, the new tentative aggregate millage rate was unanimously approved, decreasing to 8.5 mills from 8.6 mills, which is a drop of 2 percent. The overall scal year 2014-15 budget dropped 2.9 percent from last year, from $43.3 million to $42 million. The millage rate of 8.5 mills represents a tax levy of $8.5 per $1,000 of property value. For an average $100,000 home with homestead exemption, the annual taxes would be $425. County Administrator David Edwards outlined budget increases for the general fund, library state aid grant, building fund, mosquito control, RESTORE Act fund, ne and forfeiture fund, road department 2 cent gas tax fund, fire MSBU fund, tourist development fund and the solid waste grant fund. The budget does not include pay raises for county employees this year. The tentative budget passed 3-2, with Commissioners Howard Kessler and Jerry Moore voting no. The nal public hearing for approval of the nal millage rate and budget will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 22. ANIMAL CONTROL ADOPTION PROGRAM A pilot program to see how well an adoption center will perform at Wakulla County Animal Control was subject to hopeful comments and also criticism. The startup will cost the county $10,000, intended to be offset by adoption revenue. Ivanhoe Carroll, director of animal control, said people come by the center all the time asking to see and adopt animals. But since the CHAT adoption group left the facility others say they were forced out Carroll has to turn would-be adopters to other resources, which is confusing to people. The lack of adoption data also keeps animal control from competing for grant funding. Commissioner Kessler asked Edwards, why only $10,000 is being requested when it cost CHAT $100,000 to run the facility. To try it on a limited basis, Edwards said. To see what the outcome is, test market it, and then well come back to you guys with the results of that. Edwards said if the program shows a 25 percent margin loss, it will be re-evaluated. We do not anticipate making money at this, he said. We anticipate either breaking even, or losing a little bit of money. Carroll said, We need access to low-cost spay and neuter vouchers. In order to do that, we need to have data that says weve done X amount of adoptions per year of a certain percentage of your animal intake. When we go to make applications for grants we cant compete, because we dont have any data. This is an effort, with your approval, to get our foot in the door and try it on. Kessler asked Edwards why CHAT was forced out of the adoption center, and Edwards said they were not forced out, but chose to leave. After data showed adoptions were decreasing and the euthanasia rate went up, Edwards said something had to be done. Cauzican, another adoption resource, was brought in, and the euthanasia rate dropped.

All public hearings will be held at the County Commission Chambers located west of the County Courthouse at 29 Arran Road, Crawfordville, Florida 32327. Interested parties are invited to attend and present testimony. WAKULLAS FLOODPLAINFlooding can threaten at any time of the year from various sources. Wakulla County regulates construction and development in the oodplain to ensure that buildings will be protected from ood damage. All developments in the oodplain, not just construction of buildings, need permits. Filling and similar work are prohibited in certain areas, so check with the Planning and Community Development Department before you begin a project to build, ll or otherwise. Should unauthorized development in the oodplain be witnessed by a citizen, they can report it to the Countys Code Enforcement at (850) 926-3695. It is also important to know that houses in the oodplain that are substantially damaged by events such as re or ood must be repaired to new construction standards. This includes elevating the structure to or above the base ood elevation when it is repaired. Damage is considered to be substantial when the cost of reconstruction equals or exceeds 50% of the buildings market value. When damage of this type occurs to a structure and repairs are necessary, visit the Planning and Community Development Department for a Development Permit Application to begin your permitting process. A recorded warranty deed and site plan, showing the improvements/repairs to the property, will be required to complete this Application. Once obtained from Planning and Zoning, the Development Permit Application should be submitted to the Building Division for permitting. Depending upon the types of work performed additional materials will be requested from the Building Division and/or other Departments to complete the permitting of repairs to the structure. Applicable fees are due for Development Permit Applications and Building Division permits, unless otherwise waived by the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners for widespread storm damage. An important protection measure in regards to ooding is ood insurance. Homeowners insurance policies do not cover damage from oods, so obtaining a ood insurance policy can help you should you experience a ood. Since Wakulla County and the City of St. Marks participate in the National Flood Insurance Program, you can purchase a separate ood insurance policy in these areas. This insurance is backed by the Federal government and is available to properties that have been previously ooded. Dont wait for the next ood to buy insurance protection. In most cases, there is a 30 day waiting period before National Flood Insurance Program coverage takes effect. Also, consider obtaining contents coverage if it is not already included in your current insurance policy. Contact your insurance agent for more information on rates and coverage. For further information on these topics contact the Planning and Community Development Department at (850) 926-3695. SEPT. 18, 2014

Both of those forums will be more traditional formats of question-and-answer, but in an effort to try something a little different, a forum on Sept. 25 will offer voters a chance to Speed date your candidate. This forum, sponsored by The Wakulla News and the Democratic and Republican parties, is based on modern speed dating, where individuals move from table-to-table meeting and talking with people within a certain time period, and then moving to the next one. Candidate forums using that format have been done in some big cities and worked, and we thought we would try it here. As each candidate goes to a table for 10 minutes, questions will be drawn and the candidate answers them. More questions can be drawn if theres time. At the end of the 10 minutes, the candidates move to the next table and more questions are drawn. There will be moderators at each table to ensure that the conversation stays on topic and is civil. All ve county commission candidates have agreed to participate. Ive heard skepticism from some people who dont believe we can have a civil discourse on politics. Im hopeful that we can have a real dialogue about the issues. But remember, candidates are there to participate in a discussion, not to he harrangued or harassed. All that said, if you would like to sit at a table with the candidates, please send me an email to RSVP and reserve a seat. The email is editor@thewakullanews. net. You can also submit questions to be considered at the same email address. Whether seated at a table or not, you can also just come out and observe. It should be interesting. It will certainly be different.AGAIN, OVERWHELMED WITH LETTERSWith political season comes a glut of political letters. I am, once again, overwhelmed with them theres a couple of candidate endorsements and a lot about the wetlands amendment. A lot of the letters I get are long some are very long. Ive never liked word counts on letters I tell people who want to submit something to write as long it takes to make their point and then stop. Some of our letter writers are pretty artful at expressing their point of view, and sometimes I feel like theyre chasing mental rabbits. I will make every effort to get all the letters in print before the election. Thanks for sending them in. William Snowden is editor at The Wakulla News. READERS WRITE: William Snowdeneditor@thewakullanews.netChristian Coalition forum is Sept. 18 Editor, The News: First a thank you to the Wakulla News for printing the notice of our candidate forum to be held Thursday, Sept. 18 at New Bridge Hope Church. New Bridge Hope is located at 1282 Spring Creek Highway, across from Macks Meats. Theres plenty of parking and everyone is invited. The event starts at 7 p.m. and will run approximately one hour. We have invited all the commission candidates currently running for of ce in both District 2 and District 4. We will not be taking questions from the oor, but will have each candidate speak three minutes on all of the following topics, which seem to be popular this campaign season. The format will be a series of the following topics: 1). The wetlands ballot initiative A and the wetlands ordinance generally 2). Taxes & Fees can we nd other ways? 3). US 98/319 intersection should it be changed from its current alignment? 4). Our airport should it be supported with county funds? 5). What you will bring to the county if elected? No questions will be allowed from the oor. Candidates will be available before and after the forum to answer any more questions individually, and we encourage that. This election, there seems to be a pretty clear choice of which direction the countys future will be going Of course, all of this is useless unless we all voter. The primary, with its exceptionally low turn-out was very discouraging and wed like all citizens to become informed of all the candidates positions on matters affecting the county, and, vote! Its a privilege won, not given, to us all. Thank you again. We hope to see all candidates and many citizens on the 18th. Jennie V. Jones Chair Wakulla County Christian Coalition Ruth Francis Secretary Editor, The News: Thank you, thank you, thank you. To the many families, friends and citizens of Wakulla County, thank you for allowing me to serve you as your School Board Member for nearly 16 years. To my family and extended family, thank you for enduring the many trials of running for of ce and supporting me in doing what I love serving the needs of children. I have been truly honored to represent the children and families of Wakulla County in a position that allowed a voice for the continued success of the greatest school system in the State of Florida. People all across the county have been so gracious as to pass along their heartfelt concerns to me about the election outcome. As I expressed my appreciation for their concern, I hope I shared my excitement for the other possibilities God has in store as He always opens a door upon the close of one. I have served the children and families of Wakulla County for over 20 years in many capacities, and with Gods blessing I will continue to serve because there is so much more still to come. Best wishes to Mrs. Brock in her new role. My only suggestion is to continue to start every meeting by asking Gods guidance in the decisions for our children. Ray Gray Crawfordville Editor, The News: Last week we needed to have one of our dogs groomed and decided to try a new business in Wakulla County. We took our pet to Ms. Marias Grooming LLC in the row of shops between Talk o the Town Deli and Sundance (two other great Wakulla businesses). We were very impressed and satis ed with Marias new business. Her service was very good, in a very inviting environment with a polite and friendly staff. Maria exceeded all our expectations. We recommend her to anyone seeking a pet groomer. Another great reason to shop locally in Wakulla County! Mike Eakin CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: As a librarian, I have always found the American Library Associations celebration and promotion of Banned Books Week an exciting topic. As one reads the long list of books that have been challenged or even removed from libraries, bookstores, or classrooms either by choice or by theft one nds many titles of favorite adventure stories from childhood or modern fairy tales of magic and mystery that transports readers into grand worlds of creativity. Even the Bible makes this list quite continuously. The topic of banned books and censorship always makes me wonder if people know what lengths their library staff goes to in order to protect the communitys right to read. Libraries, including the Wakulla County Public Library, adhere to a Library Bill of Rights that was created by the American Library Association Council in 1939 and has been most recently reaf rmed in 1996. These six, simple guidelines for library services help libraries maintain their status as forums for information and ideas. I. Books and other library resources should be provided for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all people of the community the library serves. Materials should not be excluded because of the origin, background, or views of those contributing to their creation. II. Libraries should provide materials and information presenting all points of view on current and historical issues. Materials should not be proscribed or removed because of partisan or doctrinal disapproval. III. Libraries should challenge censorship in the ful llment of their responsibility to provide information and enlightenment. IV. Libraries should cooperate with all persons and groups concerned with resisting abridgment of free expression and free access to ideas. V. A persons right to use a library should not be denied or abridged because of origin, age, background, or views. VI. Libraries which make exhibit spaces and meeting rooms available to the public they serve should make such facilities available on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or af liations of individuals or groups requesting their use. Please visit us the week of Sept. 22-27 and celebrate your freedom to read by checking out a book that someone somewhere might have considered just dangerous enough to think that you shouldnt read it. It might be a book by J. K. Rowling, John Steinbeck, Maya Angelou, Mark Twain, Toni Morrison, Harper Lee, Lois Lowry, or even Judy Blume. The list goes on and on. When you read, celebrate every word, on every page, and the joy of reading it just because you can!

Robyn Drummond Director of Library Services Editor, The News: I attended the 9/11 memorial service at the sheriffs of ce grounds last Thursday, Sept. 11, and was dismayed at the turnout of the private citizens of Wakulla County. I nd it hard to believe that one could not take about 30 minutes of their day to honor the memory of those that lost their lives on that terrible day. NEVER FORGET. Harriet Rich CrawfordvilleA story last week on a contribution from Bay Leaf Market to CHAT (Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment) gave the wrong email address for those who want to volunteer or help CHAT identify feral cat populations. The correct address is firstname.lastname@example.org. We regret the error. Editor, The News: I want to thank Donna Dickens for reminding all of us that we should be saying Thank you everyday to those who cross our paths and make our lives better. I cried when I read her letter of Sept. 11 (Thank you from someone you helped) and I will be thinking of her when I say thank you. One more time thank you, Donna. Diane Lanter Blakely, Ga.

Crawfordville, Florida From Front PageAPPLICATIONS The application period for Operation Santa Wakulla will be open throughout the month of October. Applications may be submitted from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Wakulla One Stop Community Center located on the corner of Shadeville Highway and Trice Lane. Operation Santas organizers what people to be aware of the Oct. 31 deadline, as families often assume the application period goes on until Christmas. Applicants are also encouraged to apply early, and visit www. operationsantawakulla. org to get a head start by printing the application, learning more details, and viewing an informational video. Applicants must bring a photo id, reside in Wakulla County, and can be individuals, parents, grandparents, foster care providers and of cial caregivers. Applications can also be found at the library. FAMILY ADOPTION Operation Santa helpers are hoping to increase the number of families adopted this year. An individual, church, neighborhood, club, school, or business can make a big impact by adopting a family, or multiple families. One local church adopted 20 families last year, and a total of 103 families were adopted. Some adopters prefer to adopt families with which they can identify, or request a family of a certain size. When families submit an application, they are given the opportunity to request three presents with a retail cost not to exceed $25 each. Of course, some items requested only cost $10 to $15, or can be bought on sale. Adopters are not limited to how much can be purchased for a family. Adoption Team Lead Robin Lunn can provide information at 926-1233 or 561818-5366; or email RMLunn@comcast.net. DONATIONS The nonpro t has undergone a change of address. While the application and interview location is at the community center, the Episcopal Diocese of Florida are lending their vacant church at 1255 Rehwinkle Road (at the corner of US 98) to serve as Santas Workshop this year. Donations may be dropped off at this location, or at the green box at retail stores, banks and various locations in Wakulla County, not at the community center like years past. A list will be posted to Faceook and the website. Good items to donate: Empty plastic laundry detergent bottles (rinsed with lids) for homemade laundry detergent for every family; current styles of clothing (clean, new and like new); unopened toiletries, beauty tools and products; toys, games, art supplies, movies and music; books for all ages; baby stuff including diapers; linens and towels of all kinds; non perishable foods; appliances, furniture, mattresses and bed frames; wheelchairs, adult diapers and walkers; and gift certificates from restaurants and fast food establishments.

Staff reportsChurch BriefsBy JAMES L. SNYDERTraveling, especially by air, is not my favorite pastime. I know some people who just delight in ying from one point to another point. If you would count all of those people who do, I would be nowhere on that list. Recently I had to travel involving changing planes, which involved spending a night at the Orlando airport. I could have come home, which is about two hours away, or I could spend the night and catch the plane the next day. It would cost me about the same to stay overnight at the airport as it would to travel back home and then return to the airport the next day. So, after all of my meticulous calculations, I decided to spend the night at the airport. I determined while there to get the most of my nights stay at the airport. The hotel at the airport was one of those big international hotels. It had more stories than a politician on the campaign trail. As is usually the case, my room was on one of the top oors of the hotel. Checking in at the front desk, I then went to my room and settled down for the evening. I was not going to waste my time huddled in my hotel room, rather, I was going to look around and experience the nightlife at this international hotel. I decided to get some supper around 8 oclock in the evening. This, I found out, was the time high society folk eat. Why they eat so late, I will never know. But, since I was with high society, I decided to act and eat like high society. The restaurant in this international hotel was one of those highfalutin restaurants where you really do not know what is on the menu. The menu was in every language except English. Fortunately, they had some pictures and fortunately, my index nger was still in good working order. I ordered my supper, set back and observed the high society all around me. One thought that stumbled through my brain at the time was, I wonder if these people in this restaurant know that I am not part of high society? About this time the wine steward, I guess that is what he is called, came by to take my wine order. The only wine I know is spelled with an H. When I declined the wine, people began to suspicion I was not part of high society. I guess you cannot be part of high society unless you wine a little. I nished my supper and decided to wander around in the huge lounge area on this oor. Everybody there was talking and so I got an order of coffee, went to a couch, sat down and just observed what was going on around me. One thing I noticed was that most people seemed to be on their cell phone. What would happen in our society if cell phones suddenly stopped working for three minutes? There would be such a panic across our country that nobody would actually survive. I decided I should call someone on my cell phone. After all, I am trying to t in with this high society. My dilemma came when I tried to gure out who in the world I should call at 10 oclock at night. Then it dawned on me. I will call the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. So I pressed the speed dial and the phone started ringing. As soon as the phone started ringing, a thought danced in my mind. What in the world am I calling her for? What in the world would I talk about? Before nishing all of the questions floating around my cranium my wife answered the phone. The rst words out of her mouth were, What did you forget now? It seems that whenever I go on a trip, before I get too far down the road I remember something I forgot. When I assured her that I had not forgotten anything, I sensed a slight pause on the other end and then she said, Did you miss your plane? Within the next few minutes I was bombarded with question after question, all I did was call, and at this point, I could not remember why I had called her. It just seemed like the thing to do at the time. After she settled down a little bit and her panic seizure ceased, I told her I just called to call. Oh, she said, not knowing how to answer that. I was shocked. It had never happened before. I am going to cherish this memory for as long as I live. I actually caught her when she had nothing to say. Needless to say, I relished that moment because it will probably never happen again. After I hung up, I sat sipping some more coffee when one of my favorite verses came to mind. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear (Isaiah 65:24). My comfort rests in the fact that God is closer to me than my cell phone.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

BOLDT Anytime I am at the end of my rope, or when I dont know which way to turn, I am inclined to go to Someone Who knows exactly what to do every time. And that is exactly what I am praying my president (and every political and spiritual leader) will do. I try to imagine the stress President Obama is under. And whether I agree with his politics or not, he is my president, the leader of my country. President Obama is the highest representative of the country I love: the United States of America. That alone gives me reason to pray. It is my hope that President Obama will recall (and gain encouragement from) the way some of the leaders in the Bible handled extreme stress: Davids men were so angry at him that they spoke of stoning him. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God. He then inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this troop?(1 Samuel 30:6, 8 Ampli ed Bible). And when Jehoshaphat was facing a great army that was coming against them, he prayed as he stood before his people, O Lord, God of our fathers, are You not God in Heaven? And do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? In Your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand You. And ended the prayer with, We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. (2 Chronicles 20:6, 12 Ampli ed Bible). David and Jehoshaphat made their choices after inquiring of the Lord. One more thought: I cant help but remember the many times God has used dif cult times in my life to mold me to become more like Him. Therefore, I am convinced God can use anything any trial, any occurrences in anyones life to draw him or her to Gods love and for His purposes. My prayer for President Obama: Father God, I pray President Obama will have the courage to do what is right and wise for all; that the leader of this wonderful country will ask You for wisdom and direction about what is best for the United States of America; that he will seek clear direction regarding everything he is facing. And, Lord, please help President Obama, during these demanding times, to grow in the revelation of Your Word. Help him to personally experience Your love, Your faithfulness, and Your purposes for him. That is my prayer for my president. What is yours? Sheryl H.

From Page 3A Since the county pays for the facility, There have to be parameters, Edwards said. You need to perform at this level to keep the county funding or we have to change the whole program up. Edwards went to CHAT with the new, hard-driving contract. I dont put together stuff thats not harddriving, he said. We are willing to negotiate. I said, and whatever you do, dont react because its hard-driving, but theres stuff in there we can work on. Next thing I get a phone call saying theyll be out in six weeks. That was their decision. Kessler said it was insult that CHAT was presented with a hardball contract after a good 20-year record, while raising a lot of their own funds. Kessler said he veri ed with two CHAT officers that adoption numbers for 2013 were 334, not a lower gure expressed by Edwards. At the budget meeting, Kessler was clear in saying CHAT was forced out. It was an impossible contract, he said. I dont think we should be playing hardball with a group of volunteers that have served our community for 20 years. Commissioner Randy Merritt said he understands that Kessler does not like what happened to CHAT, But its .024 percent of the budget were sitting here arguing about. Kessler said he wants county adoption services to be successful, but this is a recipe for failure. He did offer a solution: advertise another adoption service provider bid to use the facility. RESTORE ACT UPDATE There has been some movement in RESTORE Act activity recently, so Intergovernmental Affairs Director Sheree Keeler organized a linear presentation to explain how the grant funds would be applied for and allocated. While there are not tens of millions in funds available yet, the county is prepared for the opportunity. RESTORE is an acronym for Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies. In 2012, President Obama signed the RESTORE Act into law, which established the Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund in the U.S. Treasury Department to help restore the Gulf after the massive BP oil spill in 2010. Eighty percent of the civil penalties will be deposited into the fund and invested. Wakulla County is eligible for a percentage of that money, but the county must show the funds will be used for environmental and limited economic projects. There is a state level fund too through the Gulf Consortium, which has a committee Keeler was selected to head up with four other individuals in the state. We are not missing a stroke, County Administrator Edwards said. They are going to see to it that the county gets every dollar that can come to us. The process is uid right now, Keeler said. A total of $2 million is expected from a final Transocean payment, and the BP trial is not yet settled. The next BP trial will determine the level of negligence, and establish a price per barrel, which could bring in millions locally to be used in restoration efforts. But I just want to be sure everyone understands, we dont have $20 million, Keeler said. The money doesnt go away. There is no deadline, no schedule. We can get everything in place so when and if the BP money does happen to come available, well be better prepared for it in a very methodical way. US 319 AND SIDEWALKS Merritt, who sits on the Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency board, said at its next meeting he will recommend that the US 319 project be put on the regional mobility plan. He said the secretary seemed very confident that funding can be obtained for the project. If we can get 319 on that list, Merritt said, I feel really good that DOT will start throwing some more money at it. He added that, of nine priority projects on a regional transportation alternatives list, ve are for sidewalks in-county at COAST School, St. Marks, and three in Panacea. He said funding is secured for sidewalks from Crawfordville Elementary to the courthouse, and from the Senior Center to the Arran Road intersection. Edwards said a future project will tie the Senior Center sidewalk down to the community center. BIG BEND MARITIME CENTER For a decade, Florida Foresight has struggled to make the Big Bend Maritime Center a reality, said President Roger Pinholster. The center, which is on ve acres near Woolley Park in Panacea, was originally planned to be a multi-million-dollar multi-site maritime center, but the group is refocusing its efforts and gathering ideas. Were looking for partners, Pinholster said. Were looking for a coalition thats going to put forward time, effort and money. Edwards said, The county does not have the funds, nor is there grant funding out there for this to build and maintain it. Its got to be a community effort. If the community is not willing to support this and get it off the ground, then well look at returning the land back to the state. Edwards suggested a six month timeframe to get a grasp on the centers possibility, but Pinholster said he only needs until Christmas to know if people want it or not. In other matters: The annual rate resolution for solid waste services was adopted, and the cost to WastePro customers will stay the same at $196 annually. The annual rate resolution for re services will also stay the same. Rate resolutions to pave Northwood Subdivision, Tupelo Ridge and Brooke Forest were approved. Commission Chairman Richard Harden said only the tax rolls of the residents in those areas will be affected. The striping on Smith Creek Road has been completed, and a drastic improvement to safety, Harden said. Roads due for striping: Harvey Mill, Cajer Posey, Wakulla-Arran, Arran Road, MLK, East Ivan, Songbird Avenue, Bridlegate, Bonnie Raker Lane, Ivan Church Road and Wakulla Springs north and south for about seven miles. Harden said Forest Highway 13 is rife with wide and deep potholes, and as soon as they are fixed, more break open. Edwards said the Forestry Service (which owns it) is working toward paving it. Harden said he will bring back a resolution to make the road a bigger priority to the Federal Highway Administration. Kessler asked the board to consider a resolution to mirror the letter sent to DOT, requesting a re-evaluation and safety study of the US 98/319 intersection realignment. Commissioners were not on board with writing another letter.Nicholas Kent Strauss died Sept. 5, 2014, at Big Bend Hospice House.

Paternal grandparents Bobby and Karen Wells of Crawfordville. Maternal grandparents Danny and Wendy Riggs of Ft. Walton. Bowen Lee and his older brother, Roedy Caedem, along with his aunt and uncles, DAunn, Kobe and Coleman all enjoyed the festivities of his rst birthday. 1st Birthday: Bowen Lee WellsBy STEVE CUSHMANKWCB PresidentOver the years, I have spent a great deal of my free time dedicated to protecting the fragile environment of Wakulla County. I moved here almost three years ago. I found a home located on the bay and immediately fell in love with the nature it offers. Having moved here speci cally for the unique cave diving Wakulla offers, I also found more than I realized when it comes to Wakullas natural surroundings. It wasnt long before I fell into my usually acts of volunteering for the community in which I live. After a chance meeting with the executive director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, Jo Ann Palmer, it wasnt long before she had sparked my interest in the mission of KWCB. My wife and I joined the organization and a year later I became the president. KWCB focuses on beauti cation through many events such as; the national forest cleanup, hazard waste days, the coastal cleanup being held on Saturday September 20th as well as many community events to landscape, educated the community about responsible stewardship of our environment and remove as much litter as possible through our adopt a road program. Over the past few months, one site in particular has been used as an illegal tire dump. We have located and removed more than 300 tires. We are aggressively working to nd those responsible for the dumping. Meanwhile we continue to remove the tires so they do not harm our environment. Tires decomposing on the ground release many hazardous chemicals, one being arsenic, along with multiple heavy metals. These elements leach into our aquifer through our natural wetlands or through our sand-covered limestone karst, ending up in our water supply. I do not need to spell out just how serious this is to human health and safety. It must be stopped. I take our water supply seriously as a cave diver using it for recreation and also as a local Florida resident who consumes this water. Our aquifers travel thousands of miles underground so the implications for waste put in here does effect people far away and vice versa. I always commend the efforts of all those who work to protect our environment but we all need to think about the damage caused by acts like this. Not just locally but worldwide. We all owe it to ourselves and each other to act responsibly when it comes to out resources. We must nd the balance between their use and protection. Senseless dumping of hazardous materials or even keeping of them where they cause harm is not a right, its a responsibility we all must share to keep our plant safe for our children and their childrens children. If you see tires or hazardous waste please report it. There are many organizations who will help in removal of these wastes.By ROGER PINHOLSTER Director, Big Bend Seafood FestivalThe 2014 Big Bend Seafood Festival will be Saturday, Oct. 11, from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Woolley Park in Panacea.

BREAKFAST PARTNER By EMILY SPINDLERKindergarten TeacherAlthough we have only been in school a month, the Stingrays at COAST Charter School have been working hard and learning many, many things. Our students, parents, and staff make a great team and are excited to see the school year get underway. Our middle school student of the month is seventh grader, Aden Mullins. Aden has demonstrated trustworthiness since the very rst day of school and models our three Rs every day he is Responsible, Respectful, and Ready to Learn. Fourth grader, Joshua Bentley is our elementary student of the month. A true demonstrator of trustworthiness, Josh has completed all his work and studied hard for all of his tests. Way to go, boys! We are very proud of you and the examples you are to others. We are always in the middle of fun events at COAST. Pre-K and Kindergarten had an exciting Pete the Cat unit which culminated in a special concert featuring Pete the Cat tunes. Our middle school students enjoyed an engaging presentation from Julie Carrier of MTVs series, Made, which focused on being con dent and following your dreams. Thursday, Sept. 18 is our Annual Title I Dinner and Parent Night at 5:30. Families can come join us for a barbecue dinner and then experience what a day in their childs classroom is like. We hope to see all of our Stingrays and their families there! Our school is again running the Kid Zone section of the Stone Crab Festival on Oct. 25. PTO is hard at work planning and coordinating for this event. The Kid Zone is COASTs largest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds support the school. Please come out and visit us! Upcoming events: Sept. 18 Title I Dinner, 5:30 p.m. Sept. 21 PTO Meeting, 6 p.m. Sept. 22 to 26 Book Fair Sept. 24 Teacher Planning Day By BETH ODONNELLWakulla County SchoolsWakulla County public school system is seeing a 29.5 percent decrease in funds being spent on its water, sewer, electric, and propane bills over the last two years. This is not only a savings for the school district to be able to use these dollars more effectively in the classrooms, it is also a wiser use of the taxpayers dollars, states Superintendent Bobby Pearce. Plus, this greenhouse gas reduction improves the environment as Wakulla partners with Cenergistic, an Energy Conservation Company whose mission includes, To empower our clients to reduce their energy and water footprint by 30 percent and more. Wakulla County School Board rst partnered with Cenergistic in 2012 by hiring former Medart Elementary teacher Beth Brown as its Energy Education Specialist. After extensive training with Cenergistic, she spent a full year gathering baseline data at each school site on their water, sewer, electric, and propane usage. Cenergistic works by analyzing the infrastructure of a system and giving ways for the Energy Education Specialist to help people change their behavior to reduce consumption, much like getting into the habit of turning off lights when you leave a room at home. Brown works on establishing relationships with the people at each school site and is appreciative of how receptive they have been to helping the school district improve, plus helping to improve the environment. Observes Brown, This success would not be possible without all the Wakulla County School District stakeholders help. During the school year, faculty and staff turn off lights, computers, and more when not in use. We schedule HVAC to be on only when areas are occupied. We unplug everything we can during the summer. The Operations Foremen and custodial staffs work in groups so that we can run the air conditioning in speci c areas. Cafeteria Managers unplug kitchen equipment when the kitchens are unoccupied. It truly is a systemic effort. Cenergistic was founded in 1986 as Energy Education and is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Their clients are in 48 states and include school districts, colleges, healthcare institutions, and churches. One concrete way to explain the almost 30 percent cost avoidance since 2012 is to compare the Wakulla School District energy reduction of 27,687,238 kilowatts (kBTU) to 900 passenger cars not driven for one year, or to 110,748 tree seedlings grown for 10 years. Many of our teachers and staff are passionate about the environment, especially living in beautiful Wakulla. They appreciate having more tools to help teach their students about why we should care about our energy consumption and how we can make the world a better place, notes Superintendent Pearce. The School District is a great practical example to use.School District energy ef cient Stingrays in the Spotlight at COAST PHOTO SPECIAL TO THE NEWSCOAST middle school student of the month is seventh-grader Aden Mullins. Fourth-grader Joshua Bentley is elementary student of the month. Staff Report Sometimes young people go to college and experience life away from their parents for the first time. However, Luke McManus will be seeing someone he knows very well around the FSU campus his mother, Leah. Alan McManus said his wife of 26 years, Leah, wanted to be a music major since 18, but she put that off to raise a husband and two kids. She homeschooled her two sons, Luke and Seth, since kindergarten. It goes without saying that the family is musical. Seth is a senior in high school, an accomplished pianist and tuba player and currently captain of Wakulla High Marching Band. Luke is now a senior at FSU in the College of Music majoring in music education. He is an accomplished pianist and percussionist and plans to teach middle school or high school band. My wife Leah has always been an exceptional vocalist and awesome violinist, Alan said. She always dreamed of pursuing music as a career. She gladly put off that dream to raise two exceptional boys. After successfully preparing Luke for college, he looked at his mom and said Now you go do it! She accepted the challenge and decided to do just that. After obtaining her A.A. from TCC, she applied to FSU and in February she auditioned for the College of Music at FSU and was accepted. She has entered the music therapy program which will take four years to complete. She began her rst day of realizing her dream delayed on Monday, Aug. 25 as a freshman at FSU. She is often mistaken for the professor in most of her classes which has become a point of humor for her and other students. We have used the Napoleon Dynamite line on Luke more than once Your mom goes to college! Whats so awesome is that they are in the College of Music together for at least one year, Alan said. Luke has been a good sport about it all. Seth just returned from a mission trip to Cameroon, Africa and is making plans to attend Johnson University to major in intercultural studies. His current long range plan is to become a Christian missionary in Africa. As you can see Leah has poured her life into preparing her sons for their future and her ability in that area cannot be exaggerated, shes phenomenal, Alan said. Leah has spent the last 13 years involved in many aspects of Wakulla County life. She sings with the Silver Bells, sings each year with the Community Choir at Christmas (Messiah), has played the roles of Cinderella, Maria and Beauty in the Wakulla County Community Theatre.Local mom pursues dream at FSU Leah McManus 4679 Crawfordville Hwy, Crawfordville, FLwww.EdenSpringsRehab.comEden Springs Nursing and Rehab( 850 ) 926-7181Private Rehab Suites Physical Therapy Stroke Specialist Come by for a tour and see our facility and services!REHABRECOVERENJOY LIFE!

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBy MARJ LAWWhile at a yard sale on vacation, Joe and I came across someone selling organic eggs, homemade slippers, rocks to hold business cards, and an old H&C Scott 12 gauge side-byside shotgun made in London, England. Of course, we had to check out that gun. With the two rabbit ears above the wooden stock, this gun looks like an old percussion gun. Its not. Made around 140 years ago, the shotgun is like a transition piece from the percussion guns. However, instead of placing ignition caps on the nipples, the ears are actually hammers. The hammer strikes a firing pin which sets off the primer in a cartridge. Thats why it has the appearance of a percussion gun. The barrel is called Damascus twist. Roughly, this means a flat sheet of metal has been heated and hammered around a mandrel to form the barrel. Unfortunately, right behind the foregrip, a crack mars the finely-checkered wooden stock. I see a tiny crack here, notices Joe. Yes, admits the owner. Were it not for the crack, Id charge $20,000! As it is, Ill sell it to you for $250. Joe keeps a poker face, so I know he isnt interested. When were out of earshot, I ask him, OK, Joe, why wasnt that gun a good deal? I know you were fascinated! You have to be really careful when you purchase a gun, and especially so when you find a very old gun, cautions Joe. Although this is a cartridge gun, the old cartridges were made quite differently. First, he said, the brass cap of the shell is the primer, just like today, except in the old days, mercury was used in that primer. We dont use mercury today. After the primer was the gunpowder which, when exploded, propelled the shot down the barrel. In those old days, it was composed of black powder. Because the old black powder was not as powerful as todays smokeless powder, if you use a today-made 12 gauge shot, the power will be greater and you run the risk of damaging the gun or yourself. You just cant substitute new cartridges for the old ones. After the primer and powder is the wad. It used to be made of fabric or cardboard. This separated the powder from the lead shot. You dont want to mix the powder with the shot because it will degrade the pattern of the shot. Those old shells had a paper covering. Today we use plastic. Bottom line, the old shot was less powerful than what is made today. You dont want to use too powerful a cartridge in an old gun. You can, however, purchase some black powder cartridges. They are usually twice the price of ones made for newer guns, and are limited in source. Old metal barrels were handmade and not so strong as the metals we use today. Between a weaker shot and weaker metal barrel, you can understand why shooting today and shooting of yesterday is comparing apples and oranges and can be dangerous. The crack in this particular rifle makes it suitable for being a wall hanger. Id never shoot it without having had it worked on by a true master gunsmith. And this is a caution Id tell anyone about the purchase of an old gun or rifle. If you are seriously interested, though, make sure you take a flashlight and look down the barrel to see if the rifling is accurate and that there is little or no rust. You want a clean and shiny bore. Check to see if the mechanism is working correctly. In this gun, the wood stock and the metal receiver do not sit tightly. Theres a wobble. Not good. Make sure all the parts are on the gun. Is there a butt plate? Are the sights intact? Are there chips on the stock or barrel? Do you see rust? Also, if you are out of your own state, how will you transport the gun home? If it is made after 1898, you will have to take it to a dealer and have it sent to a dealer near you. This will cost another $50 or $100, depending on what the dealers charge. Or you can unload it, and lock it in the trunk of your car and drive it home. Some airlines will not transport any guns at all, so you will have to investigate. Finally, and I cant stress this enough, if you really are intent on purchasing the gun and you want to use it and not hang it on the wall, take it to your favorite master gunsmith and let him or her check it out and fire it. You dont want a piece of history to blow up in your face.Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsOn old guns and wallhangersState may expand use of silencers for hunting HOME ON THE RANGE www.WakullaDiving.com Wakulla Diving Center, Inc.

You should always have a gunsmith check out any antique gun for safety. By JIM TURNER THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAHunting game in Florida could become a little less noisy by the end of the year. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Wednesday, Sept. 10, advanced a proposal that would remove a prohibition on the use of noise-suppressors, or silencers, with rifles and pistols when hunting deer, gray squirrels, rabbits, wild turkeys, quail and crows. The proposal will now be advertised in the Florida Administrative Register, and the commission is expected to vote on the new rule in November. While critics said muzzling rifle shots could increase the risk of people being struck by wayward bullets or cause people to wander unaware into hunting areas, backers of the proposal said such concerns are unfounded. Commissioner Brian Yablonski noted that suppressors take out some of the big bang and recoil, but they dont silence weapons as depicted in the movies. It still makes a very loud sound and this was in all cases, Yablonski said during a commission meeting in Kissimmee. Were talking louder than a rock concert, louder than a jackhammer with the suppressor. Commission staff, hunters and a representative from the suppressor industry defended the proposal as a means to protect hunters hearing, lessen the impact of hunting on others and even help while introducing people to the sport. Knox Williams, president of the American Suppressor Association, estimated that 40,000 suppressors are already owned in Florida. Florida currently allows the use of suppressors on shotguns for game hunting. A suppressor can also be placed on a ri e or pistol when hunting on private lands for non-game wildlife, which includes hogs, bears and armadillos. Buck Holly, an owner of C&H Precision Weapons in LaBelle, projected that by lifting the ban, sales of suppressors at his Hendry County business would grow from about two to ve a month to up to 10 a month. He said that would allow him to add one or two jobs. I know in most counties one to two jobs isnt a big blip on the radar, but in Hendry and Glades counties, one or two is a tremendous economic boost, Holly said. Patricia Brigham, chair of the League of Women Voters Gun Safety Committee, cautioned that a proliferation of silencers would reduce public safety. Theyre going to be used in such a way that theyre not intended to be used, which is to harm other human beings, Brigham warned. Katherine McGill, a founding member of the National Urban Wildlife Coalition, said more time should be given to the review. I have no problem with suppressors personally. If someone is target-shooting near my property Id be glad that they are using them. Id like them to be put on reworks, too, McGill said. But I dont want to be riding my horse in the woods and not hear that hunter out there. Suppressors are allowed in 32 states for all hunting. Division of Hunting and Game Management Director Diane Eggeman said lifting the prohibition isnt expected to lead to a widespread proliferation of the use of suppressors. She estimated a ri e suppressor costs between $750 and $2,000, while individuals also have to pay $200 for a federal criminal background check.

This report represents some events the FWC handled over the past week; however, it does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement. FRANKLIN COUNTY: Officer Allen received information about individuals harvesting oysters at night in closed waters in Apalachicola Bay. Of cer Allen set up surveillance in the area the information was given and observed two boats and occupants actively harvesting oysters. Officer Allen attempted to stop the vessels and was able to get one stopped. He found the individuals on board had a full deck of oysters and were harvesting them in closed waters. Two individuals on board were issued citations for harvesting oysters between sunset and sunrise and harvesting oysters in a closed area. Also, several boating safety warnings were issued. Of cers conducted oyster size tolerance inspections to coincide with the opening of the winter harvest areas in Apalachicola Bay this week. During the inspections, Of cer Allen and Investigator Cook issued four misdemeanor citations for possession of undersized oysters. While fueling his vessel at a local marina, Of cer Cook noticed a vessel operating in the idle speed zone of the Carrabelle River at what appeared to be full speed. After refueling, Officer Cook located the vessel and performed a vessel stop and vessel safety inspection. During the inspection, it became quite clear to Officer Cook that the vessel operator was under the in uence of some type of alcoholic beverage. After attempting several field sobriety tasks, the operator of the vessel admitted to consuming alcohol pretty much the entire day and a breath sample of the operator revealed that he was almost twice the legal limit (.159 ml). The vessel operator was cited and jailed for the violation. OKALOOSA COUNTY: Officer H. Rockwell was working in plain clothes near the Shalimar Bridge when he observed a subject land an oversized red drum. The subject asked Officer H. Rockwell if he would take a photo of himself with his catch and send it to his phone. He then stated, This ones going in the cooler... were having redfish tonight. A short time later, another subject landed an undersized ounder and multiple undersized Spanish mackerel. Officer H. Rockwell called Of cers P. Rockwell and Corbin to assist. When the subjects began packing up their gear, Of cer H. Rockwell announced himself as an FWC ofcer and conducted a fisheries inspection. The inspection revealed a second oversized red drum. Of cers P. Rockwell and Corbin arrived on scene and two subjects were issued citations for possession of oversized red drum and undersized ounder. Warnings were issued for possession of undersized Spanish mackerel. The two red drum, ve Spanish mackerel and flounder were seized as evidence. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 Page 11A With Labor Day behind us for this year, school back in session and the signs of fall approaching are all around us, many may not be thinking about the dangers from heat exhaustion and heat stroke. While both of these have been discussed before, it is important to revisit them from time to time to keep it fresh in mind. While some parts of our nation are already seeing their rst snowfall, we are still being greeted with high humidity early in the morning and temperatures soaring up into the 90s during the day. It is hard to walk outside without breaking into a sweat! When out on the water, the temperature can be intensi ed by the sunlight re ecting off the water. Heat exhaustion is often caused by dehydration, which can also lead to low salt levels in the body. When the body sweats excessively and the loss of water and salt is not replaced, it can lead to confusion, headache, nausea and loss of consciousness. As heat exhaustion progresses, it can turn into heat stroke as the core body temperature rises. High body temperatures can lead to internal organ damage and death if left untreated. Packing plenty of water or sports drinks is critical to prevent dehydration the leading cause for heat related illness. By the time you feel thirsty, you are already beginning to become dehydrated. Being out in the sun and out on the water, can cause you to become dehydrated quicker than you may expect. A good rule of thumb is 12 ounces of water for every hour out on the water. Caffeine and alcohol can speed up dehydration as well. Be sure to counteract their effects with additional water. If you suspect you or another person is suffering from a heat related illness, seek medical help immediately.

During my short acceptance speech for the prestigious Conrad Limbaugh Life Time Achievement Award for Leadership in Scienti c Diving, hosted by the American Academy of Underwater Sciences in Sitka Alaska, I commented on my journey which lead me to this point in time. Destined to be a diplomat by my parents because I could enculturate easily, my parents took me for a visit to the Bay of Siam in 1962. With a mask and one n, I became mesmerized by their reef, and dragged away after 8 hours of sheer exploration. I was hooked on the sea. But today those reefs are gone! By the age of 16, I resided in Hawaii, became a certi ed diver at Pearl Harbor trained by R&R UDT sailers and soon spent every weekend either diving or sur ng. In 1966, a newly formed NAUI offered an 8 day instructor exam. I passed but was only provisionaly certi ed because of my age. During my freshman year at college, I began my rst collegiate dive program. With a degree in Zoology, several years working for the Cooperative Fisheries Unit monitoring Hawaiian reefs and now married, I departed the Islands for Florida. By 1972 I began my second college program at Indian River Community College in collaboration with Harbor Branch Foundation Lab, where I worked as a Diving Lab Tech. I turned my professional career around when I joined the Scientist-in-the-Sea (SITS) Program in 1974, taught by Captain (Dr.) George Bond in Panama City, where I met my mentor Dr. William Herrnkind from Florida State University. All this time I sought to de ne a Diving Scientist, and here I found one. I soon began developing my third collegiate dive program, which came to be called Academic Diving, and was emulated by six other institutions in later years. With graduate degree and a faculty position secured by the end of the decade, I settled into an aggressive multidisciplinary research and training agenda, resulting in producing thousands of highly dive-quali ed college students based upon aquatic research on Earth from Antarctica to the equatorial islands. In 2000, I moved to the FSU Panama City campus to collaborate the the U.S. Navy and teach the SITS Program and set up my fourth college dive program. By 2002, we were developing the standards for Underwater Crime Scene Investigations. After I retired from FSU, I continued to pursue rebreathers, cave research and mixed-gas deep diving, ultimately opening a large private facility in Wakulla County, and soon found myself developing my fth college dive program with the Wakulla Environmental Institute, this time as a consortium. I continued my work with other universities from around the country, Europe, and as far south as Bogota, Colombia, studying the reefs of our ocean. I ended my comments at the awards banquet by re ecting upon a recent and very bright graduate student that came to me for cave training. When asked, she very con dently said she was going to Mars and fully expected to dive the caves of that planet. I believe her. She is currently at Stanford University studying Astrophysics. I offered to the room full of Diving Of cers at most of the Universities that support underwater science, that they too will have the opportunity to train the next generation of extraterrestrial diving scientists. There was a momentary silence as disbelief settled in to the audience. I now better understand why we face great loss to our marine reefs worldwide. Few can take what we know now and project ahead to logical conclusions. I now understand what happened to the rst reef I visited, the one that so completely changed my lifes journey.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com & By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsIf it werent for the sign out front that reads The Funky Fiddler Open, you might drive on past. But people are starting to turn their cars around, because the doors of Kelli Boxbergers once popular gallery in Wakulla County have re-opened. A small sh pond is built inside a repurposed old boat that sits under the front porch of the former service station. It is a unique outside feature that offers a glimpse of the creativity that youll nd in this eclectic shop along Highway 98 in Panacea. The Funky Fiddler rst opened in May of 2002, when Boxberger rented another small building across the street. This little place came up for rent, and I decided to give it a try. At rst it was just my paintings and some used furniture, she says. But its always been called The Funky Fiddler. I got a tiny scroll saw for my birthday present one year and that gave me the ability to do cut-outs of sh and animals, she says about how her artwork began to be noticed in the area. It was growing so fast, and people were asking for custom orders. Originally from Charlotte, N.C., Kelli and her husband Mike then decided to purchase their current building, located at 1373 Coastal Highway. Boxberger uses her talents, and has developed a well-known moniker that carries original designs, hand-built furniture and one-of-a-kind artwork. At one point, they began developing a design for standing ice chests, and they are now one of the most popular items they sell. We call it generational furniture. says Boxberger. The custom ice chests are a signature item. The wood is cypress, and the hardware is stainless steel. Then we add a marine sealer, and its all UV protected. Weve been making these for nine years. Weve seen a lot of others try to do it, but they dont compare to ours, she says. The custom ice boxes range in price from $395 to $750. Two small, spotted dogs greet customers at the door, tails wagging. Their names are Sweet Pea and Daisy. Inside The Funky Fiddler, colorful paintings of sh, birds, and coastal themed artwork is neatly arranged. They also carry a variety of housewares, gifts and other artists work. One entire wall is hung with cutout fish in all shapes, sizes and mediums. We cant make everything, but everything is hand selected, she explains. Boxberger closed the Panacea location to retail traf c about three years ago, when she explained there was an opportunity to occupy a large space in downtown Apalachicola. The Funky Fiddler retail shop moved to Apalachicola, but they kept their building in Panacea. It became the workshop and studio for the business. For the last few years they have commuted back and forth from Panacea to Apalachicola, about a 40 mile drive. Theyd build it in Panacea, and sell it in Apalachicola. The building they were renting in Apalachicola changed hands and the new landlord was planning to raise the rent, so the decision was made to return to Panacea. Ive always been artsy, and enjoyed drawing and painting, says Boxberger. Although, not always an artist, Boxberger attended college for nursing, and worked as a hospital neurological nurse for over a decade. She worked mainly in the operating room, and intensive care unit of the hospital. After she became a mother, giving birth to twins Brandon and Bryce, Boxberger decided she wanted to change pace and take a break from her high stress life as a nurse. She left nursing, spent more time at home with her young children, and then she began working with her husband in his business. Both from Charlotte, N.C., where they met, Mike Boxberger ran a successful janitorial supply company in Atlanta. Kelli worked in sales until they decided to sell the business in 2002. This is when they decided to relocate to Wakulla County. She designs and sketches the art and furniture. Then Mike, and their son Brandon, transfer the ideas to wood, and Kelli finishes up with paint. Together, through a process theyve developed, they transform wood into beautifully designed furniture, art and coastal decor. We make generational furniture. Its not IKEA, its not disposable. Its the kind of furniture we pass down to our kids someday, she explains. We depend on our repeat customers and word of mouth referrals. Their son, Brandon, 26, of Crawfordville, takes the Funky Fiddlers show on the road. He has opened his own branch of the business, called The Funky Fiddler and Son. He has developed his own style of whimsical wood art, furniture and designs, and travels the extensive art fair and festival circuit in Florida and beyond. Prices for his whimsical wood art range from $65 to $135. And, keeping with the family business, her sister, Leigh Whicker, makes the candles that are sold at The Funky Fiddler. Based in Charlotte, her hand-made scented candles are poured into ball jars, with classic, simple labels. She creates unique scents with names like Music City and Cent Limeade. They are soy candles, and they burn so long, and smell so good, Boxberger says. I should start getting the holiday scents in about ve days, she mentions. Shell be sending us Pumpkin Souf e, Hot Apple Cider and Under the Mistletoe. In addition to the shipment of holiday candles, Boxberger is also preparing for the holidays, making ornaments, coastal themed stockings, and beach house Christmas decorations. Asked about being back in Panacea, after making the regular trek to Apalachicola, Boxberger releases a sigh of relief, Im just comfortable in my own skin again. Its home. And she has found renewed energy as she discusses the possibility of expanding The Funky Fiddler to other coastal markets, possibly south. Id like to have more than one location along the coast, she says. I have a needed product, that is custom made with an affordable price. The Funky Fiddler in Panacea is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and you can nd them on Facebook. They are located at 1373 Coastal Highway at the corner of U.S. 98 and Walker Street, next door to the Big Top grocery store.Funky FiddlerArtist Kelli Boxberger re-opens colorful gallery in Panacea Artists of WakullaArtists of Wakulla is a monthly feature that highlights an individual artist living and working in Wakulla County.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 Page 13ABy LES HARRISON and SHELLEY SWENSON of the Extension Of ceThe beginning of autumn is less than two weeks away and many gardeners already have their fall vegetable gardens in the ground. Plants are breaking the surface on some crops with others only a few days away from sprouting. Still, there are remnants of summers bounty. One warm weather producer which is still going strong is a southern favorite, black-eyed peas. As the name implies, these legumes do have a prominent black spot or eye on each pea. This open pollinator distinct subspecies, Vigna unguiculata, is part of a larger group identi ed as cowpeas which includes Crowder peas, Pinkeye purple hulled peas, Cream peas and others. The origins of this regionally popular vegetable are uncertain. Historical evidence suggests they were rst cultivated in India and Africa, both warm latitudes. Their user-friendly handling characteristics and excellent shelf life when dried made them excellent candidates for long distance trade. Over time they became a staple of ancient Greek and Roman diets. Like all legumes, blackeyed peas have the ability to x atmospheric nitrogen to their root. This means they produce their own nitrogen fertilizer, but they may require additional fertilizer to meet other soil nutrition requirements. The black-eyed peas grown in the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Demonstration Garden were cultivated in mushroom compost. As such they did not require additional fertilizer or soil nutrients. Black-eyed peas grow on a variety of soils but grow best in soils with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Avoid planting peas in highly fertile soil since excessive nitrogen level stimulates vine growth and delays the time to harvest. Peas should be planted after all danger of frost has passed. These peas can survive drought, but adding mulch will help the soil retain moisture. Frequent harvest, every two to three days, to encourage continuous owering and pod production is recommended. Clip rather than pull the pods from the plant No summertime Southern meal is complete without black-eyed peas on the table. While not considered traditional health food, these local legumes have many positive nutritional features, depending on how they are prepared. Black eyed peas are low in fat and sodium, saturated fat free and cholesterol free. They are an excellent source of vitamin B1 and a good source of ber, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc. Eating black-eyed peas on New Years Day symbolizes prosperity and good luck in the New Year. The remainder of the year they complement most any other dish or recipe prepared. Along with most Wakulla County residents, many garden pests enjoy blackeyed peas. Common insect pests are leaf-feeding caterpillars, leaf-footed bugs, stinkbugs, aphids, thrips and spidermites. Another significant pest is the cowpea curculio. This insect probes the pods, lays eggs in the developing peas so the growing curculio grub can eat the infested seed. Old-time gardeners referred to these peas as stung. They wrongly assumed the peas had been stung by wasps. Wasps do congregate around black-eyed peas, but they are not there to sting the pods. These insect gather the nectar secreted at the base of the pods. Contact the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Office at 850-9263931 or http://wakulla. ifas.u .edu/ to learn more about growing black-eyed peas in Wakulla County.

Many criticize the term as being vague and hard to understand. Have you determined your de nition? The fundamental concept of sustainability is living in a way that does not jeopardize future generations. I have adopted the de nition that was offered in Oregons publication, Living Sustainably: Its Your Choice (http://extension.oregonstate.edu/catalog/ pdf/wec/ec1415.pdf). Former Wakulla County FCS Agent, Michelle Adamski helped write this publication. The authors describe sustainability as a deliberate effort to live sustainably affording individuals the chance to re-evaluate lifes priorities. Sustainable living is developing a life that is deeply satisfying, ful lling and appealing because it is socially, environmentally and economically responsible. I like it! How does your interpretation of this word differ? The publication identi es three main barriers to Americans seeking greater sustainability. They include the time crunch, too much stuff, and our disconnection from nature and spirituality. We all face the time crunch. Making changes to incorporate more sustainable living practices does take time to re-evaluate purchases, alter behaviors and incorporate changes into our daily lives. Those who have not spent time in nature enjoying the incredible county in which we live are not reminded of the impact of bad decisions and how they negatively impact our environment. And then there is the American way of having too much stuff. American consumption exceeds consumption in any other country. In fact, if everyone is the world lived an American lifestyle, it would require four Earths to sustain that level of consumption. In my lifetime I have seen the development of storage units. I would anticipate that most young people cant image driving in any part of the county while screening the landscape without seeing one. Storage units just did not exist when I was a child. How many cars do you see in driveways because the garage is being used for a storage unit? We have grown to love our stuff! I have to admit that in August I attended the longest yard sale in the world and returned to my home in Wakulla County with many treasures to incorporate into my work and at home. In addition, I say with pleasure, that one of the charities I support is having a rummage sale this week-end and I have a collection of things to donate. Every time I pass through a room in my house and at the of ce, I am looking for additional items. It gives me pleasure and almost relief to think that someone may nd a use for something that I have enjoyed but dont want anymore. Cutting down on stuff can be a very freeing experience. There are all kinds of advice I can offer to encourage you start the process of de-cluttering. How about walking around your home and nd ve things a day that you could donate or discard? Do that for a week or two and see if you start seeing some space that you have not seen in years. How about devoting 15-30 minutes a day to clearing out clutter? Cleaning a room or even a drawer at a time may be your solution. I know a home organizer who lives in Wakulla County. Would you like to employ her to start or totally complete the process? Let me know and I will make the referral. As with so many things, small steps can result in big dividends. Start thinking about where you would like to donate your items. There are many worthy places in Wakulla County that accept them. Consider a yard sale. This year at the Green Living Expo we hosted a section of the event to giving away items that individuals decided were not needed. It was exciting to see how discarded items were chosen by others with intended uses in mind. Sometime we think we are too small to make a difference in this big world. Our actions seem insigni cant in comparison to global issues. The reality is that action on your part is exactly how big change are made. It really does come down to you and me. OK now, go clean a closet!

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 Page 15A Historic Tully-McLaughlin House relocated Sept. 10By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netTraf c going through Crawfordville was slowed on Wednesday, Sept. 10 as the Tully-McLaughlin house slowly rolled north toward Old Zion Road. Drivers seemed more curious than frustrated as many could be seen with smart phone cameras extended to snap photos of the relocation. The house, built in 1892, will rest in a staging area before becoming part of Heritage Village, a historical park created by the Wakulla County Historical Society. Historical Society members and family descendants escorted the house on foot as Pigotts Movers hauled it by Hudson Park. Terry Crum, 77, was born in the house where his grandparents, John Archie and Annie Carraway McLaughlin, lived. Before that, Crum said it was the rst permanent structure in Medart, and had served as a post of ce and a store. He said there was a three-sided porch where he could play, no matter how rainy it was. The pecan trees in the backyard kept the house shady in the summer, and warm in the winter when the leaves fell off. Crum said the Tullys, who built the house, planned it that way. The Tullys had a reason for everything they did, Crum said. Crum said he lived in the house onand-off several times before he married Lessie and settled near Pigott Pond. He said the old house will always be considered home in some ways, even in its new location. If they would plant two pecan trees behind it where they put it he said. Im glad theyre preserving the old house like it was. I know where there are initials on the wall. The house has been through a lot, Crum said. It stood through the 1899 hurricane which wiped out this part of the world, and the hurricane which took the tin off of it, from one end to the other, he said. Residents of the home went through a lot too births, deaths and illness. I had rheumatic fever there the measles, mumps and the day-to-day things. Crum said it was always so cold in the room he slept in during the winter. It would be bitter cold, so I would warm my pillow on the heater until it was just about ready to scorch, he said. Then I would run like crazy and jump in that cold bed, and have that warm pillow. When electricity was finally installed, Crum said he remembers his grandmother lighting every bulb in the house, and then walking away, so she could stand in the dark see it all lit up from afar. The McLaughlin siblings Jamie, Murray and Betty Sue Bruce, cousins of Terry Crum, were there to witness the moment on Sept. 10, and joined others at a reception afterward. Jamie was born in the south end of the house, but lived nearby growing up in Medart. He often visited his grandparents there. The laundry was done outside in a wash pot with an old scrub board, Jamie said. My grandma and my mom would do their laundry together. I would play in the yard. Betty Sue said the McLaughlin house had an indoor bathroom, which was rare, especially for such an old house at the time. Jamie said he remembers when the bathroom was installed, and the kerosene lamps that were used before the house was wired for electricity. Murray said he remembers the pecan trees, and the old pump house at the back of the house. When the pump was running it had a wheel with a pump and a motor, Murray said. Whenever it would kick on, it fascinated me, and I would want to go over. My grandfather would pick up pecan limbs from the ground, come over and switch me with it to get me away from that. The McLaughlin siblings are thrilled that visitors can enjoy the house, which will be refurbished for the park. Betty Sue said, I love the idea of people being able to know what it was like.HISTORYThe McLaughlin house was first known as the Tully Place. George W. Tully, who built the Historic Wakulla County Courthouse, also built the original structure. Tully moved his sawmill to the wilds of Medart in 1892, but his wife remained in their Crawfordville home. George built a one-room structure near the sawmill to accommodate himself and his sons in a bunkhouse through the week as they worked at the sawmill, and returned home in Crawfordville on the weekends located at 84 Ochlockonee Street. Later, Tully sold the Medart building to the McLaughlins, who parented nine children. The McLaughlins added rooms to the original building and established a store nearby. One of their sons, Alton James Buddy and Sedav Raker, his wife, lived and operated a store near the home for more than half a century. PHOTOS BY NICOLE ZEMATerry Crum holds a photo of his grandparents John Archie and Annie Carraway McLaughlin, who lived in the 122-year-old house that was relocated last week. The Tully-McLaughlin house was relocated from Medart to Old Zion Road on Sept. 10.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comEating locally and seasonally are both quite fashionable today with some who consider it as a path to good health and low impact on natures resources. Before the days of large, specialized agricultural operations and high speed transportation, residents of Wakulla County and elsewhere had no choice but to eat locally and seasonally. Every local farm and homestead had, as part of their objective, to produce enough meat and vegetables to keep everyones body and spirit intact. The springs and summers delivered multiple opportunities to add nutrients and calories to the menu before nature through the local insect population blunted the efforts late in the growing season. Nature, however, compensated the early inhabitants with sweet and useful native fruits at the end of each growing season. Persimmons and crabapples still grow wild in Wakulla County even though most contemporary residents are not acquainted with them. The American persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) is native to much of the eastern United States and has long been a late season food source of people and wildlife. Members of the persimmon genus also grow in Asia and southwest Europe. The word persimmon originated with the Powhatan tribe in eastern Virginia. It literally means dried fruit and likely refers to those which remained on the trees until they dried late in the year. Its closest botanical relative is ebony, a highly valued tropical hardwood which is very dense and mostly black in color. Contrasting this, persimmon lumber is a sandy tan in color but still dense and rigid. It is occasionally stained and used as a substitute for ebony, but has also been used to manufacture wooden golf club heads. It is one of the hardest native lumbers in the country. Timber qualities aside, persimmons were once widely known for their unique taste qualities. If sampled while still green, the astringent taste is so extreme the experience was long remembered and never repeated. The ripe fruit of the American persimmon is a completely different experience. It is very sweet, but with a large pit and an almost slimy texture. Folklore advised potential consumers to wait until the fruit had dropped from the tree and the ies found it. Many flying insects, including bees and wasp, are attracted to the thinskinned, sweet fruit. Crabapples are another native fruit with a unique taste and specific uses. They are members of the apple family (Malus), but are found in a wider geographic range than the hybrid cultivars which produce the popular fruit. The blooms are white to pink, emerging in the late spring and can be quite showy. There are many hybrid cultivars which have been developed for their bright blooms and are a popular landscape plant or small tree. The native varietys fruit ripens in early autumn. This bitter fruit was the basis for crabapple jelly, but was also included in other jelly recipes because the high pectin content helped the jelly solidify. Both persimmons and crabapples are popular with a variety of wildlife species. Deer hunters long ago realized the advantage of staying close to these trees when trying to bring home the venison so they could eat seasonally and locally.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Marianna Bulldogs came to Wakulla High School last week with an upset on their minds. The opening kickoff from Marianna was an onside kick recovered by the Bulldogs, and then a quick score on a run for a touchdown the point-after was blocked and Wakulla was down 6-0 with only seconds ticked off the clock. The War Eagles stormed back, with a pass from quarterback Feleipe Franks to receiver Keith Gavin for a touchdown. The Franks PAT would put Wakulla up 7-6. Marianna stormed back down the field and threatened with a rst and goal at the 3, but safety Caleb Fell rushed the QB on a blitz, de ected the attempted pass, caught it, then ran it 95 yards for a score. The point-after was missed, but Wakulla was up 13-6 and never looked back. Caleb Fells 95-yard interception was a game changer, said Head Coach Scott Klees. By halftime, Wakulla was up 30-6 after another Franks-to-Gavin TD, a eld goal after a Bulldog fumbled punt, and a TD pass to receiver Ethan Davis. Coach Klees said he purposefully focused on passing during the rst half, and running during the second half.

For the most part, we executed, he said. Talking about the achievements of Franks and Gavin, both Division I commitments Franks to LSU and Gavin to FSU Klees called them special players. He praised Fell as well, noting that, going into the Marianna game, the senior safety led the state in sacks with six. Klees also praised adjustments made by Defensive Coordinator Grady Guess at halftime with cooling off the Marianna offense. The win improved the War Eagles record to 2-1. Up next are the Taylor County Bulldogs, who the War Eagles defeated last year 20-14. Klees called it a rivalry game. Its gonna be hard-fought, he said. It could go either way.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 Page 3B By MARTY COHEN OK gather round the camp re for some virtual Smores as we dissect what weve seen from the 2014 Florida bunch through the first three weeks and two games of the season. Anyway, here goes: Well start at the top, no not with head coach Will Muschamp or even offensive coordinator Kurt Roper, lauded after the initial 65-0 stroll over Eastern Michigan then questioned a bit when the offense managed just 20 points in regulation time (despite mega-yards gained and plays run) against a Kentucky out t that certainly appears improved compared to the recent editions, but well see down the road how much of that was due to the Wildcats climb or the Gators inconsistent play. No, were talking about quarterback Jeff Driskel, the shaky straw that stirs the uncertain drink. Of all the things to take away from the 172 snaps in the triple-overtime affair with the Wildcats, the sight of some cringeworthy decisions under duress from Driskel has to be the most disheartening as we look down the line. Weve seen this play out before, to disastrous results, from Driskel. From all accounts, the added maturity and experience plus the comfort level and the ease of execution of Ropers new scheme were supposed to alleviate this burden from Driskels shoulders. Yet late in the first quarter here was the 2013 flashback No. 1, when a pressured Driskel made an ill-advised throw to really no one in the at that was picked off and returned to near mid eld. Through the years weve witnessed scads of players who performed like Hall of Famers in practice only to come up small on Saturday, the ones we used to dub Mr. Wednesday, the anti gamers if you will. While we kept seeing mercurial sophomore receiver Demarcus Robinson make dynamite plays during the open preseason drills, it always came with the caveat about performing in the same manner on Saturdays. Well, Robinson showed us all what happens when the lights come on, putting on a dazzling display as the only target for Driskel, who threw for 295 yards against Kentucky, but only 79 of those yards and 10 of the 25 completions went to someone other than Robinson. His touchdown on fourth-and-9 in the rst overtime period, amidst chaos and the appearance of a delay of game infraction (followed by Driskels finest throw of the night) may have saved the season at this juncture. The tally: 15 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns, leaving a two-game mark of 21 receptions for 339 yards and three touchdowns, although as weve mentioned before, counting statistics accumulated in overtime, a glorified Red Zone practice drill, is beyond absurd.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gators By TIM LINAFELT A few weeks ago, Derrick Mitchell raised eyebrows when his name topped Florida States defensive end depth chart. Its since taken two games for Mitchell to blossom from surprise starter into perhaps one of FSUs best defensive linemen. So said head coach Jimbo Fisher last week. I think Derrick Mitchell is playing as good as anyone we have up front, Fisher said. I think Derricks doing a great job. Hes really emerging into a very good football player. Under other circumstances, Mitchells emergence might come as a pleasant surprise. But given FSUs current situation on the defensive line, it could prove to be crucial. The Seminoles saw three defensive tackles starters Eddie Goldman and Nile LawrenceStample, along with reserve Justin Shanks suffer leg injuries in their win over The Citadel. Even though Goldman returned to practice on Monday, the other two have yet to resume as full participants. Which means Mitchell could be called upon in a big way both to play heavy snaps at either end or tackle, and also to help guide the younger players that FSU might have to thrust into action. Hes evolving into his role, said FSU left guard Josue Matias, who often matches up with Mitchell in practice. Hes become a great player for us, which we need right now with a couple guys hurt. Its an awfully long way to come for a player who entered fall camp with questions about whether hed ever play at all, much less contribute in a meaningful way. A series of injuries sidelined Mitchell, a Jacksonville native, for almost all of his rst three years at FSU. When he made it through offseason conditioning drills without any ill effects, Mitchell had a feeling he might be on the right track. Asked if the last month has been the best of his time in Tallahassee, Mitchell smiled. Best time of my FSU career, he said. Since being named the starter and not just being named the starter but going out there and being able to play. It feels great every time I put my hand in the dirt. I think God and I thank Coach Fisher and Coach Odell [Haggins] for never giving up on me.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy DARA KAMTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Sept.12 It may be an off week for the Seminoles in the land of football, but the spotlight is still hot on the garnet and gold. Florida State University alum John Thrasher whose resume includes stints as a lawyer, lobbyist, state Republican Party chairman and House speaker has made it to the Final Four in the schools search for a new president. And speaking of gold, health regulators are wasting no time getting Florida ready for the green rush already sweeping the state as they craft a framework for the new medical marijuana industry. Meanwhile, the just say no crowd is letting loose with the green, fanning the ames in the ght over a proposed constitutional amendment that would legalize weed for a variety of medical reasons. (GARNET AND) GOLDEN GOOSE THRASHER: I CAN GET ER DONE The wrangling over Florida States next president is getting as raucous as a Doak Campbell Stadium throwdown. The universitys 27-member Presidential Advisory Search Committee on Tuesday named four nalists, including state Sen. Thrasher, to succeed former President Eric Barron. Barron, an academic and ace fundraiser, left FSU to take the same post at Penn State University earlier this year. The other nalists, chosen after the committee spent two days interviewing a pool of 11 applicants, are Richard B. Marchase, University of Alabama at Birmingham vice president for research and economic development; Michele G. Wheatly, who until June had been provost at West Virginia University; and Michael V. Martin, Colorado State University System chancellor. Thrasher, the only nontraditional candidate among the 11 interviewed this week, has been a golden goose for FSU in the Legislature, including getting a medical school for the university. Thrasher currently serves as the powerful head of the Senate Rules Committee and also chairs Gov. Rick Scotts re-election campaign. During his one-hour, 15-question interview Tuesday, Thrasher spoke of his passion for the university and his desire to make a difference at the school where he received his undergraduate and law degrees. I want to be president of Florida State University. If you give me the opportunity to do it, I promise you, I will make you proud, Thrasher said. I dont particularly have a greater skill set than anybody else, but I know how to get things done. The committee is scheduled to make a recommendation Sept. 22 to the universitys board of trustees. The trustees, who would still have to forward the nal choice to the university systems Board of Governors, are scheduled to meet Sept. 23. Thrasher made the cut despite objections of students and faculty who have been skeptical about the politicos potential presidency and the selection process for months. The universitys presidential search has roiled since Thrasher threw his hat into the ring early in the process. In June, the search committee put the quest on hold, presumably to focus on Thrasher as the next chief, after being told that the politicians interest would discourage other potential candidates from applying. But the search was instead restarted with a new consultant at the helm. Tuesdays decision prompted more fallout from the universitys Faculty Senate. Wanting the schools next president to be a scholar with higher-education leadership experience, the academicians voted 39-23 on Wednesday to oppose Thrashers inclusion as a nalist. Meanwhile, a small group of students, rooted in the fraternity and sorority systems, started SupportJohnThrasher.com, a website intended to counter opposition to the St. Augustine Republican. STATE: GET THAT POT TO SICK KIDS ASAP! Its sort of a pot rush, even if the type of weed that will soon be spreading across the state supposedly doesnt get users high. The Department of Healths Of ce of Compassionate Use this week hurriedly published a revised rule governing everything from stems and seeds to serving the substance to sick kids. The latest version of the rule included tweaks to who can own the ve dispensing organizations that will eventually get licensed by the state to grow, process and distribute newly-authorized strains of cannabis. The Legislature, in approving a pot law this spring, required each applicant to have a valid registration from the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to cultivate more than 400,000 plants, be operated by a nurseryman as defined by state law and have operated as a registered nursery in the state for at least 30 continuous years. At least 60 nurseries meet the criteria. A preliminary rule oated by health regulators would have allowed nurseries to have just 25 percent ownership in the entities applying for a license. That option drew a rebuke from the Legislatures Joint Administrative Procedures Committee, which helps oversee state regulations. The original proposal also neglected to speci cally address whether the nursery would be required to have a continued role in running the pot operation. Under Tuesdays revised proposal, a nurseryman would have to serve as the operator, alleviating some concerns that growers would have little or nothing to do with the grow operation despite lawmakers intention that the nascent pot business be controlled by companies with a long agricultural history in Florida. The proposal would require a nursery to have at least 25 percent ownership of the organization that gets a license, but also would offer another alternative that would allow percent of the owners of a nursery to ful ll that 25 percent requirement. That ownership change appears aimed at appeasing some nursery owners who expressed concerns about nancing the marijuana operations. Because pot is still illegal under federal law, nearly all banks are refusing to lend money to marijuana-related businesses. Converting other areas of operations into cashonly business could pose major problems for growers interested in participating in the medical marijuana startups, a lawyer for Costa Farms told the Department of Health at a day-long public hearing last week. With Scotts blessing, lawmakers this spring legalized marijuana that contains .8 percent or less of euphoriainducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and more than 10 percent cannabidiol, or CBD. Supporters believe the compound, which hasnt been approved by the feds, can eliminate or drastically reduce life-threatening seizures in children with severe forms of epilepsy. Under the law, doctors can also order the low-THC, high-CBD substance usually delivered in paste or oil forms for patients with other spastic disorders or cancer, as long as they have exhausted all other treatments. Many GOP lawmakers jumped on the doesnt get you high pot bandwagon this spring hoping to thwart Amendment 2, a proposed constitutional change that would legalize traditional medical marijuana. While the state moves toward getting the low-THC, high-CBD regulatory framework in place by Jan. 1, the battle over Amendment 2 bankrolled heavily by Orlando trial lawyer and Democratic fundraiser John Morgan is starting to smoke. The Vote No on 2 campaign recently nailed down the backing of seven former Florida Supreme Court justices, who joined associations representing Florida sheriffs and police chiefs in opposition. And the amendments foes are planning to spend $1.6 million on television ads, slated to start running in October, condemning the proposal. Like all constitutional proposals, at least 60 percent of the voters must approve the amendment for it to pass. Polls have shown widespread support for legalizing medical marijuana, but that support is expected to drop in the wake of a full-frontal attack. Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson has pledged to double the $2.5 million hes already dropped on the Drug Free Florida political committee, launched by Tampa Bay developer Mel Sembler. Both are mega-GOP money men. STORY OF THE WEEK: St. Augustine Republican John Thrasher makes the list of four nalists in the search for a new Florida State University president.

He had fallen from his nest and was slowly walking around the front yard under the tree while his mother and father had an absolute t. We knew we were looking at a dead baby bird, as it was only a question of who does it, where it is done, and how long before it happens. Years of experience in these kinds of things have taught us the nality of a baby bird falling out of a tree. Would the end come from a cat, or from a raccoon wandering up from Lewis Creek, or a snake? One of the problems with being a baby bird is that almost everything with teeth wants to eat you, and if you cant y, theres not much you can do about it. We learned that picking the baby up and putting him back in the nest wouldnt work, so we were forced to just watch his timid movements around the yard and whisper to him, Im sorry, pal. You might think that the older we get, the tougher our shells become to these little natural tragedies, but it doesnt seem to work that way. Maybe its because weve now had children of our own, and grandchildren too. Maybe thats why it actually hurts more to see a helpless baby bird today than when we were 11 and riding our bikes on the river trails. Back then we were bulletproof, exible, and immortal. But we learned things over the years. We saw people our age die. We saw younger people die. We accumulated our own little collection of personal tragedies. Then the baby found the drain spout. Yep, that little rascal hopped into the drain spout coming off the roof and had sense enough to stay in there, coming to the edge of his cave only for meals from his anxious mother. A week later, I thought I recognized him sitting on a tree branch, looking smug. He wasnt in the drain spout and I didnt see any feathers around on the ground. We live in an age of small, but important, miracles. Listen to the Home Country Hour podcast on your computer or other electronic marvels, at www.slimrandles.com. ridicule old people.

Steve Martin g ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Travel plans could be interrupted by the re-emergence of a workplace problem that was never quite fully resolved. Deal with it at once, and then take off on that well-deserved trip. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Aspects favor cultural activities for sensuous Bovines. Attend a concert or an art show. Better yet, create something yourself (a poem, perhaps?), and dedicate it to someone special. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Respect any doubts you might now be feeling about a new situation. They could be re ecting your inner awareness that some essential information might be missing. Check it out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its important to start the new month with as clean a slate as possible. Either complete all those unfinished tasks or pass them on to others who would be more than happy to take them on. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is a good time to cut down on expenses and tame that urge to splurge. Applying some nancial discipline now could help the Big Cat ride out a possible monetary crunch later on. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Money matters are dominant this week. Recheck your accounts and make sure theyre up-todate. Also, pay more attention to personal issues before they become major problems. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might be tempted to employ the same tactics as your adversary, but that could backfire. Better to use the same balanced approach that has worked for you before and could again. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A changing workplace environment could stir up confusion as well as apprehension. Best to ignore the rumors and get the facts. You could nd that the changes bring positive elements. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Communication is easier this week with people ready and eager to hear what you have to say. Also, check for possible technical problems before you start your new project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Aspects favor change for the usually traditional Goat. Opening your mind to possibilities you had ignored could lead you to make decisions you once considered improbable. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Making personal as well as professional adjustments to changing conditions might be easier with more information explaining the hows and whys of the situations in question. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) With a growing tide of positive reactions to buoy your con dence, this could be the right time to put the nishing touches to your new project and get it well and truly launched. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for setting an example of quiet, calm reasoning in the midst of chaotic conditions. 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Page 12B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 18, 2014 thewakullanews.comsports news and team views SportsBy PAUL HOOVERSpecial to The NewsOn Saturday, September 13, the WHS cross country teams traveled to Harders Park in Panama City, along with 16 other full teams for the Bay Invitational Meet. The local runners last attended this meet about ve to six years ago, but found a radically new course and venue. The course was challenging, but in great shape, with the sti ing hot weather the only drawback. The girls varsity race once again led off the competition with 12 full teams in attendance and 90 runners in their race. A quarter mile into the race, it had turned into a four person battle with two Choctawhatchee girls, one Arnold runner and local standout, Haleigh Martin. The four were together at the one mile mark and then entered a portion of the course where the runners couldnt be seen. When they emerged, Martin had opened about a ve second lead on the other three. At the two mile mark, she was holding her lead with the Choctaw girls still about five seconds behind and the Arnold girl about two seconds behind them. At this point, the Chactaw coach was overheard saying that his girls were just pacing off Martin and would pass her in the last mile. However, apparently Martin didnt know the plan and over the nal mile, not only held her lead, but increased it to 13 seconds as she won the overall title in a the ne time of 20:53. This was Martins second overall win in the last two weeks. The Choctow girls both nished in 21:06. Senior Lydia Wiedeman ran a strong race and cracked the top 15, nishing 14th in 23:11. Connie Lewis ran a solid race, nishing in 20th place in a time of 23:42. Rounding out the scoring for WHS was Emily Lawrence (29th, 25:16) and Juliana Prestia (35th, 26:36). Overall, the girls team placed fourth. BOYS VARSITYThe boys varsity race was next on tap with 16 full teams and almost 120 runners toeing the starting line. The local team fought hard with three runners cracking the top 20. Sophomore Bryce Cole once again led the way for the WHS boys squad and was the only one to place in the top 10, nishing ninth in a good time of 18:07. Senior Lane Williams was next, nishing in 18th place in 18:42, with Junior Albert Smythe next in 18:53 and 20th place. Rounding out the scoring for WHS were Travis Parks (24th, 19:15) and Dylan Pebbles (35th, 19:49). The depth of the boys team showed, as they placed third overall, trailing only Bleckley County High School from Georgia and Niceville High School from the Panhandle. JUNIOR VARSITY Next on tap was the Open/Mixed 5000 Meter Run that also served as the JV competition for the day. WHS was represented by 20 JV boys, three JV girls, two coaches and four parents. With the race not starting until almost 11 a.m., it afforded a great opportunity for all to share the race experience, enjoy the new course and suffer in the brutal heat. Evan Guarino (2nd/20:07) and Riley Welch (6th/20:32) were the top two local nishers and the only ones to place in the top 10. The girls were led by Peri Thompson (28:54) and Jeanna Prisco (29:00). Doug Cole (Bryces dad) was the top male parent and Nancy Lewis (Connies mom) was the top female parent. Coach Greg James was the top coach. The big news from the race, however, was that the local squad had 11 boys run between 21:30 and 22:50, including freshman Shawn St. Martin who ran 22:08 in his rst ever 5K. A great showing for a group of young runners. Runners setting new PRs (personal records)this week included Natalie Henderson (38:55), Jeanna Prisco (29:00), Peri Thompson (28:54), Juliana Prestia (26:36) and Alyssa McIver (29:36) for the girls and Christian Glover (28:26), Bryce Jolly (26:01), Scott Lloyd (22:50), Jacob Dismuke (22:50), Riley Carrier (22:49), Dalton Gray (22:46), Dalton Wood (22:19), Alex Smythe (22:17), and Caleb Wiedeman (22:09). The teams have a bye week this week and will resume competition on Sept. 27, at the Marlin Dash, in Panama City, hosted by Arnold High School.
