Turnout at the unique forum on Sept. 25 was not overwhelming, but the ve candidates and 40 guests all seemed to appreciate the intimate nature of the event, where candidates switched tables every eight minutes, answering questions drawn from a bowl at each one. Before the dating segment at the forum, which was sponsored and moderated by Wakullas Democratic and Republican parties at the Community Center, candidates answered four questions each. Candidates were District 2 incumbent Commissioner Randy Merritt with challenger Taylor Phillips, and District 4 incumbent Jerry Moore with challengers Steve Cushman and Bill Anderson. Following introductory statements, candidates had two-minutes to share their views on various county issues. WETLANDS Candidates were only allowed to answer yes or no to how they will vote on the reinstatement of local protections through the wetlands ordinance. Moore, Cushman and Merritt said no. Anderson and Phillips said yes. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Phillips listed ecotourism, the possibility of a small retirement community and a diversity of commerce as part of his vision for local economic development. Merritt said a key to economic development is a stable, consistent government, which is attractive to companies and developers. He added that the four-laning of US 319 will be a boost to economic development, and play into ecotourism and the seafood industry. Cushman said for economic development to occur, economic restoration should be a priority, which is achieved through balance and compromise a quality missing on the board. He said jobs will be the main driver of economic health, and he has drafted a job creation plan. Moore suggested removing any of the roadblocks that keep businesses from coming in Wakulla. He said, You make it easy for businesses to operate, and you make them feel welcome. He added that anything that can be done to develop the shing industry, including oyster programs and arti cial reefs, should be a priority. Anderson said there must be a plan to move forward, one plan being to take advantage of the Tallahassee bedroom community status. He also listed a viable outdoors and fishing tourism industry, which requires promotion and protection of resources. Anderson added that the 7 percent utilities tax needs to be reduced, and that the county needs to seek the maximum credit for ood insurance rates. TOP THREE PRIORITIES FOR RESTORE ACT FUNDS Cushman said his top priority for the (BP Gulf oil spill) RESTORE funds should be used for restoration projects in the shing industry; to establish methods of sustainability in seafood production; and explore a system to turn restoration efforts into jobs and revenue.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 4, HowieTheMastodon, the mastodon sculpture at Mary Cortese and Hugh Taylors Pelican Place on Martin Luther King Road will be painted pink in honor of breast cancer awareness month. Its $10 if you want to paint, $20 if you dont. We have a very dear friend whos done so much for Wakulla County, donating both time and money, whos suffered from the disease, never sought any credit for the good she did so we wanted to do something for her and the others who have gone through this ght, Cortese said. Fortunately, our friend has a wonderful sense of humor, so we decided to offer a Tom Sawyer kind of opportunity to the citizens of the county, including a chance to paint Howie pink, wander the very wild homestead, have a hot dog lunch and participate in a 400 foot bubble wrap walk/run.

A parade begins at 10 a.m., with events lasting until 3 p.m. Marion Russ, who is Relay chair this year, said she likes the idea of a fall festival, because it is all-day fun for families, and gives local organizations and vendors an opportunity to reach out all for the sake of nding a cure for cancer. Thats what Relays all about, family and community organizations working together to raise funds to nd a cure for this deadly disease, Russ said. I didnt know too much about Relay when I got sick with cancer. So in my rst year as chair, my goal is to bring back the fun of Relay, getting the community, churches, schools, and everyone involved.Turn to Page 5A By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net A 9-year-old citizen journalist in Mysterious Waters is running a small media empire, highlighting the characters, sights and events of the woodsy community east of Crawfordville. Erin Fortier might be young, but she is learning the process of interviews, editing and deadlines in creating the quarterly publication Mysterious Waters News. The little newspapers rst edition was published last autumn. Mysterious Waters News features local interviews, editorials, nature photos, artwork, riddles and comics, poems, letters to the editor, recipes, event coverage, public notices and more. For quarterly interviews, Fortier has featured wildlife biologist Mike Keys, 100-year-old Mrs. Kitty, collector and builder Mr. Powell, and Marj Kirschs miniature guesthouse. Some friends tell us about interesting people in the neighborhood, Fortier said. And then we decide if it would be interesting for the newspaper. Fortiers mother, Samiri Hernandez-Hiraldo, said neighbors have volunteered themselves for upcoming interviews too. Now she has people lining up who want to be interviewed, Hernandez-Hiraldo said. The publication is a family affair. Fortier said her dad, Paul, used to publish his own little newspaper, and encouraged her to do the same. Family members and friends contribute photos, artwork and writeups; and also help with layout and proofreading. Hernandez-Hiraldo said publishing Mysterious Waters News is also a learning experience for the Fortier family, as the three children are educated at home. Fortiers older siblings Rafel and Adriana both have a hand in the production process. Fortier said laying out the pages on the computer is the most challenging aspect to publishing. Putting everything where it belongs is the hardest part, Fortier said. I get frustrated a lot. But her favorite part of the journalistic process is interviewing people in the neighborhood. You get to know about their lives, Fortier said, adding that the interview with centenarian Mrs. Kitty was a highlight in her writing career so far. Her life is really interesting, Fortier said. And she just turned 100. I learned what she did when she was younger, and that she was one of the rst woman professors. Fortier said she has received a lot of nice feedback since the inception of the publication. A lot of people ask when is the next issue coming out, Fortier said.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper.From the Front Page He discussed his involvement in local oyster aquaculture, and said the money should be used to fix the damage caused by the spill, and subsequent media scare that led to over harvesting that harmed the oyster population. Anderson said the half million in funds spent to promote tourism in Wakulla is great, but the local uniqueness the campaign promoted should be improved with the money. He suggested that the TCC oyster aquaculture program might have been oversold, and the oystermen and women need to know how long a viable harvest will really take, but if they still want to attempt to grow oysters, they deserve the countys support. Moore said since a $10 million USDA grant will run sewer up Spring Creek Highway, the money should be used to tie all the area subdivisions onto that sewer. He said locations in Shell Point and Panacea both need sewer access, and the money could be used to double the sewer plant. He also listed arti cial reefs, oyster aquaculture and TCCs Wakulla Environmental Institute as possible recipients of the funds. Merritt explained that there are different pots of money for BP funds local money, coastal region consortium money, and federal money. He said the local money can be used for projects listed within the adopted infrastructure plan. Gulf restoration projects, which include reefs and oyster beds, would be more suitable for consortium money; and federal funds can be used for infrastructure upgrades like sewer and transportation. Phillips agreed with and echoed most of the comments, and added he would like to see the money used for youth and recreational development. He suggested a community swimming pool might be just daydreaming, but people would surely use it. TOP THREE PRIORITIES FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS Anderson said he hopes the wetlands issue will be decided on the Nov. 4 ballot. He would also like to see his vision implemented for economic viability, which is his number one priority. Anderson said he would work with the state to entice industries, and that his 40 years of corporate law and executive experience would be an asset in that. He repeated that the utility tax should be responsibly reduced over time. Moore contradicted Anderson, saying the local wetlands ordinance was an unnecessary buffer on a buffer. He listed other priorities: Install sewer and pave roads in the Wakulla Gardens area, and create the recreation park in North Wakulla. Cushman said his three priorities are jobs, conservation of natural resources, and restoration. He said, If we can get the jobs here, we will bring back our economy. And then conservation becomes a little bit easier, infrastructure creation becomes easier, and people have more money and can enjoy their lives here. He said with more jobs, restoration efforts can be implemented on our own, on top of BP RESTORE funds. Cushman corrected Anderson on his comments about the TCC oyster aquaculture program. Phillips said his top priorities are ecological recovery, infrastructure improvements like sewer and road paving, and the development of programs for residents who are under supported like retired folks and returning veterans. He added that development programs for youth and children are another priority. Merritt said his priorities fall under the umbrella of his independent and impartial examination of the issues. He advocated the 1-cent sales tax, which is coming up for renewal and is used for recreation and road paving. He discussed the stable budget and the ve-year plan that keeps reserves on track, accounts for lift station maintenance, and bringing the sheriffs department budget in line. He said he pushed hard for the four-laning of US 319. SPEED DATING A moderator and diverse group of voters ranging in age were parked at table ve including Travis Parks, a Wakulla High School senior who said he wanted to be informed and involved as he casts a ballot for the rst time. Cushman started his speed date at table ve, and drew a question about how to attract employers to the county. He passed out copies of his jobs plan, and said incentives should be offered to attract employers, adding that businesses should be selected based on how they fit into Wakullas ecological conservation values. Cushman drew an airport question next, and said there are probably other ways of improving the airport without the county footing the bill, since it currently does not have a signi cant bene t to most citizens. When it comes to expanding access to natural resources, Cushman said he would like to see Rock Landing Marina be rebuilt, bragged on Wakulla Springs, suggested the possibility of manatee tours, emphasized restoration of the bays, and said the Ferrell property he manages can be used as a sinks and springs park and preserve. Phillips was the next to pull up a chair at table ve, and drew a question about funding public safety through the sheriffs office. Phillips is proud of Sheriff Charlie Creels accomplishments since taking of ce, and noted, He has whittled down his spending, but still has a ways to go. He said there is a top-heavy management culture in law enforcement throughout the state, and he is not in favor of a 1:1 ratio of deputies and managers. Phillips said when it comes to county recreation, elds here do not compare to rec elds in other communities of the same size. He said youth programs seem to take a backseat to other concerns, and implied that should be reversed. To attract employers to the county, Phillips said that we must ensure the stability of existing employers, and preserve and promote the countys environmental assets. Merritt was in the hot seat next, and discussed the recently announced beach renourishment and boat ramp projects at Shell Point and Mashes Sands when asked about expanded access to natural resources. However, Merritt said kayak launches should be more of a priority, and talked about different spots that would be ideal for kayak access. When asked about traf c congestion, Merritt said widening U.S. 319 is the big one, and as a board member of the Capital Area Transportation Planning Agency, the plan is to start improving the intersections at Bloxham and work south. DOT came in and decided to fund the one at the high school rst, Merritt said. Thats been controversial in some peoples minds, but it had nothing to do with us. He added that an alternative route, or bypass, to U.S. 98 for people traveling to coastal areas might alleviate some congestion as well. When asked about recreation facilities, Merritt said the 1-cent sales tax could help fund them. Anderson was the next candidate to address table five, and drew the question about shortfalls within the sheriffs of ce budget. He said seveneighths of ad valorem taxes goes to the sheriffs office, saying, I dont think there have been consistent shortfalls in the sheriffs budget. The budget was higher under the previous sheriff, but Sheriff Creel cut the budget, he said, adding that he thinks it can probably be cut more. Anderson was concerned that the county does not offer high enough pay to deputies, who train locally for a few years, and then move on to other departments with competitive pay. He suggested eliminating more positions at the top, to keep a strong level of public safety through deputies at a more efficient cost. When it comes to traf c congestion, Anderson said he would focus north of Crawfordville on U.S. 319, instead of spending money on the controversial U.S. 319 and 98 intersection. When asked about the airport, Anderson said he is also in favor of doing the minimum for the airport to keep its license. He cited the county budget and provided documentation that showed there are only four airplanes based at the airport, so major expansion and improvements are not needed. Moore was the last candidate to speed date table ve. To expand access to natural resources, Moore talked about the new boat ramp for Shell Point and gestured to the youngest participant at the table, saying it would be there for Travis Parks grandchildren to enjoy. Moore added he would like to see a park at Spring Creek, and more ramps around the county. When asked about recreation parks, Moore said he foresees tournaments that would bring lots of visitors in the county, and generate revenue so children whose families cannot afford extracurricular recreation will be covered. To relieve traf c congestion, Moore said Wakulla will be on the A-list for $200 million from DOT to four-lane U.S. 319. Moore added that he did not have anything to do with the design of the U.S. 98/319 intersection, but would take the money for the land again from DOT if it was offered. They designed it, Moore said. I had nothing to do with it. No one in the county will turn down the states money, but everyones mad at me for taking the money. Id take it tomorrow. You can either sell it to them when they come calling, or theyll take it. The next candidate forum will be Tuesday, Oct. 7, hosted by the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce at 6 p.m. at the Wakulla One Stop Community Center located at 318 Shadeville Hwy. Questions for the forum will be accepted at wakullachamberforum. com.

By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netAt the Board of County Commission meeting on Sept. 22, apartment complex construction controversy was laid to rest, the Tourist Development Council presented exciting updates, the public learned about boat ramp and beach renourishment projects, and one commissioner was questioned over snipe signs. NEW APARTMENT COMPLEX A compromise resulted in a happy ending following controversy over an 80-unit apartment complex to be constructed at High Drive and Daniel Lane on 11 acres. The board accepted the site plan with a 3-1 vote. At a previous meeting, the board instructed apartment building applicant Walt Dickson to meet with Mill Hollow homeowners to discuss their concerns, and work on solutions that would be acceptable to both parties. An 8-foot fence is part of the compromise, which will be maintained for 25 years. Other conditions will also be reflected in the site plan. Mills Hollow residents Marc Edwards and Dod Walker both thanked the commissioners for insisting on the negotiation. Edwards said the compromise was a chance to see how community members can collaborate and reach a solution, thanks to the boards direction at the August meeting. The changes we have found are as good of a middle ground as we possibly could, Edwards said. Our neighborhood is happy with the results of working with them. Youll nd this will be a good partnership ongoing. Walker also thanked the board for the opportunity to work with the developers, and said, Im not sure I am for the project, but I am for the compromise. He jokingly implied that if rare animal species were found at the site that would stop construction, it would be OK with him. Citizen Chuck Hess said the compromise was a positive step, but a play area should be required in the plans, since the apartments will probably be home to a lot of young families with small children. Commissioner Howard Kessler voiced concerns that the final site plan was not presented to the commission to see, and voted against it. Commissioner Randy Merritt recused himself from voting because he and Dickson had discussed another land deal in the past for a property Merritt owns.

The speed date candidate forum held last week at the One-Stop Community Center was a different format than had been tried in the past and I think we were all concerned about how it would turn out. Turns out, it works really well. And for that, I admit: RACHEL WAS RIGHT Rachel being Rachel Pienta, formerly head of the Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee, who suggested the format. I went along, not completely convinced, and Jonathan Kilpatrick, head of the Wakulla Republican Executive Committee, was more skeptical than I was. The idea, of course, was for candidates to sit down at a table with small groups of citizens and discuss the issues. At the end of a certain amount of time, eight minutes in our case, the candidates would change tables and talk issues with another group. Afterward the forum, the candidates and citizens both talked about how much they enjoyed the format: They felt it was more intimate than the traditional speak-from-a-dais forum because they got a reaction, they could interact and follow up. Thanks to everyone who participated the candidates for taking a chance, and the citizens who came out and joined in. A special thanks to the moderators who sat at the tables, without whom this wouldnt have worked. And another special thanks to Sara Daw, site coordinator at the One Stop Community Center, for going over and above to help out. William Snowden is editor at The Wakulla News. READERS WRITE: William Snowdeneditor@thewakullanews.netWetlands ordinance lacks exibility Editor, The News:I am giving my wholehearted support to Bill Anderson for county commissioner, District 4 for the forthcoming election in November, not just for his environmental stance, but because hes been good for business in Wakulla County. Bill has gone out of his way to help small struggling entrepreneurs stay a oat and scratch out a living. Several years ago a group of men and women from South Florida started a shrimp hatcher in Panacea and rented Bill Andersons land and building. It was a noble, venture, they set up a fully licensed and permitted shrimp aquaculture facility with more than a million dollar investment. This wasnt aqua-scam, or bogus government pseudo job making grant program, these were real knowledgeable people with decades of experience in sea farming, working with private capital. But shrimp farming is a ckle business. And after monumental farming and marketing efforts, American Shrimp Ltd. had to close its doors, partly due to ongoing toxic diatom blooms and bacterial infections that often comes from over development of wetlands, coastal forests and kills our seafood. Bill was more than reasonable: he made many concessions on rent payments and allowed the shrimp farmers months of grace. When it was clear the company had to fold, Bill forgave the personal guarantee the family men had on the lease. Similarly, unknown to Bill Anderson, Gulf Specimen Marine Lab loaned these men two large expensive tanks and, when their lease ran out, I mentioned to Bill that two of the tanks were mine. Bill immediately assured me he would keep the tanks safe and gave me access to his property so that I could pick up the tanks when it was convenient for me. Actions speak loudly. I have found Bill Anderson to be an honorable and understanding man, who is interested in the public good. He has a strong commitment to the environment and to our local economy so please vote for him. Jack Rudloe President and Founder Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratories, Inc. PanaceaEditor, The News: When it comes to rule making, legal or administrative, the U.S. approach always has been a pragmatic one. Namely, when legislation or a bill leading to such makes sense it becomes a law until someone else says, Well, that needs tweaking, so lets revisit what we intended to do because the consequences are not what the law anticipated. The idea is to look at the consequences. In nature, not all consequences are obvious. But many are. TCC touts our area as being slap-dab in the middle of the most biodiverse region in the southeastern USA. Take away just one of the diverse species and the entire biology changes. We know that. We also know that we can be proud to know how to connect with this environment. Yet some of us have forgotten how to connect. You all live in a world here in Wakulla County where the environment needs to be on your brain otherwise someone can come along and say, Well, that needs tweaking... You get the picture. Our natural, biodiverse Wakulla environment needs no tweaking. The consequences of our habits do. If you see more cars and paved parking lots than bogs, marshes and swamps, change your habit. Join the ones who have decided to learn more about our biodiversity and its in uence on our aquifer. The special eld trip on Saturday begins at 9 a.m. The guided two-mile hike at the Riversinks Tract of Wakulla Springs State Park follows many sinkholes, swallets and sinking waters that ow in the Wakulla Springs Basin. I hope to see all of you there off C.J. Spears Road with your questions and curiosity in tact. Madeleine H. CarrEditor, The News:I have never written a letter to a newspaper before, but I felt I should in this case. First, let me explain who I am. I am a biologist and have worked on wetland and water quality issues/projects mainly in Florida for over 40 years. I worked for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection predecessor agencies for almost 19 years, then left the agency to form my own environmental consulting rm. I just retired from that rm after 24 years. Needless to say, Ive had my feet wet in a few swamps before! I have helped develop rules and statutes concerning environmental issues, and have testi ed as an expert on various wetland and water issues before local, state and federal courts and governing bodies, including the Wakulla County Commission. Since I am retired, I have no professional stake in the wetland protection issues being discussed in the County, but I am a Wakulla County resident and plan to remain one so I do have a personal stake in what is done to protect wetlands and my ability to buy, sell or develop property in the future. Buffers can be an effective way to help protect wetlands, but as with any approach, some common sense must be used. The current referendum on the ballot, and the ordinances that would be readopted, are problematic and cause me much concern for several reasons. First, Wakulla County has been in the business of approving future uses of property for many years. We have many zoned and platted lots for which landowners have been paying property taxes for years with the expectation that, at some point, they can either put their homes on the lots or sell them to buyers who may wish to do so. A responsible ordinance would include a grandfathering provision to avoid causing an inordinate nancial burden to the property owner. The proposed ordinance does not include this safeguard and would restrict or severely limit the ability for some property owners to use their land for its designated (and county-approved) purpose. I have lived at Shell Point for many years. We built a home there, which we have since sold and bought our existing home. Those properties, and in fact most of the land at Shell Point, could not have been developed under the proposed ordinances. There are vacant properties there that would be rendered undevelopable if the ordinances are adopted as proposed, likely shattering some peoples retirement dreams. A number of proponents of the Referendum live at Shell Point (much of which was developed from coastal marshes many years ago when people could get away with it!) and their homes likely could not be built under the proposed ordinances because of the proximity to surface waters and, in many cases, wetlands as well. Second, based on my experience with developing rules and statutes, I can assure you it is impossible to cover all situations that may arise when implementing them. There must be a variance procedure to allow the injection of some common sense into the process, even for Buffer Zone One (0 to 35 feet outside of the wetland). As an example, I previously assisted the City of St. Marks in obtaining state and federal permits to install culverts in roadside ditches and build sidewalks as part of its roadway entrance beauti cation project. Those ditches were deemed jurisdictional because they were connected to Waters of the State and, when it was too wet to mow the ditches (as the city and private landowners had been doing) wetland plants were growing. Had those ditches been subjected to the setback ordinances as proposed, that project would not have received county approval. Requiring a referendum vote or unanimous vote of all Commissioners to modify or repeal an ordinance is too great a restriction. After implementing a rule or ordinance for a time, situations such as the St. Marks case will inevitably arise which were not foreseen. There should be some exibility to x these glitches when they arise, which this ordinance does not provide. Third, if the county returns to the wetland protection business, it should do so properly. That means hiring and/ or training staff to be quali ed in wetland delineation. It is not an exact science, and often highly quali ed experts can differ on establishing wetland boundaries, especially on lands that have been disturbed by previous activities such as agriculture and silviculture. Staff will need training and experience to properly implement the ordinances. I will not be voting for the proposed Referendum A. It is technically problematic, and I believe it unrealistically infringes on property rights. Randy Armstrong CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Its time to pamper the pooches again! Our popular fundraising event Pamper Your Pooch will be held 9:30 am 2:30pm, Saturday, Oct. 4 at Hudson Park in Crawfordville.

Half of the funds raised will go toward CHATs Seniors Pets Meals on Wheels no small task when there are well over 100 companion animals our senior citizens need help with. The other half of the proceeds will go toward costs of continuing our TNR Program, reducing the reproduction of our community cat population in Wakulla. To date, CHAT, along with local veterinarians, has spayed and neutered 104 of these cats. Not only does this program reduce reproduction, trapped kittens are taken in by volunteers, socialized, and vetted to nd them forever homes, thus further reducing the number of community cats. So please, bring your pooch out for a bath Saturday and support CHAT of Wakulla Inc., and our programs! If you would like to volunteer for Pamper your Pooch, please send us an email email@example.com. Please spay/neuter your pets!

Staff reportsChurch BriefsBy JAMES L. SNYDERI believe many people put too high importance on certain people as if they were special. Everybody wants to be considered special, but then if everybody is special then nobody is special. Whatever anybody else thinks, I am growing weary of celebrities. We have a terrible, incurable disease in our country called celebrititis. In my research, I have not found any cure for this. And believe me, I have searched. Celebrities come in all sizes and shapes; sports, music, movies, TV, news reporters and even religious leaders have gotten into this game. In our culture today, nothing really happens unless some celebrity does it or says it. Frankly, I am tired of all of that nonsense. I do not know one celebrity I would take anything from that resembled the truth. A celebrity cannot think on his or her own, but must always rely upon a script. We all know what happens when they go off script. There is this phenomenon out in Hollywood called the red carpet. I am not sure exactly what the red carpet is except that it is a carpet in the color red, thus The Red Carpet. And yet, if one of these celebrities walks on this so-called red carpet, everybody wants to take a picture of them. I cannot think of a celebrity anywhere, living or dead, that I would like a photo. Have you ever seen one of these celebrities without their makeup? You would not recognize him or her. If I want a photograph these days, I want it to be of my family. If I want to sit down and go through some pictures, I want it to be of my family, people I know and love. I do not want it to be some madeup picture that has been photoshopped by some expert. Anybody who has a photograph taken of them and then has somebody touch it up and make it look better is a hypocrite. That is not the way they really look. Celebrities are just people and we need to start treating them like the people they are. A person is not important because they make a certain amount of money. A person is not important because everybody recognizes them. Newscasters today have become celebrities depending on their political position. Somehow, they have tricked us into thinking because they are celebrities and they look like $1 million, that what they have to say is something I want to hear. When I was young, I watched the Three Stooges. They could make stupid things funny. Now when they were making these stupid movies they were doing so on purpose. I laughed at them because what they did had an agenda to make me laugh. Nobody ever took what they did seriously. Now we have the Three-Stooges-syndrome in our newsrooms today. I often wonder if they know how ridiculous they look and sound when they are touting their opinion about something going on in the world? I think if our country is ever going to be saved, we are going to have to somehow get rid of all of the celebrities. I am tired of celebrities and I want to see something real for a change. Of course, we have on TV now what is called reality shows. In reality, these reality shows have not an ounce of reality to them. The thing that is so signi cant to me is, many people think it is reality. The only reality about these reality shows is the money these people are making pretending to be real. The money is real, but the moneymakers are about as false as my grandmothers teeth. I have come to the place where I do not believe anything I see on television. If it is on television, it has been tweaked so that somebody can make MONEY. After all, the only purpose of television is to make some people rich, lthy rich. And the richer they are the lthier they are. My premise is still the same people are just people. When will everybody come to that conclusion? I think the sooner we come to that the more we will realize that nobody is better than anybody else. I do not have to take a second seat to some person starring in the movies. How can you say somebody is important when they have to memorize a script somebody else wrote and then they have to shoot it 17 times to get it right? Where are the good, honest, hard-working people who made this country what it used to be? The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage reminded me of something Jesus said. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me (Matthew 25:40). It is comforting to know that people, after all, are just people and I count myself to be one of those just people.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

BOLDT Brushing my teeth isnt my favorite task of the day. But when God unexpectedly showed up at my bathroom sink, my smile was even brighter! I rinsed my toothbrush while studying my Bible memory verse, written on an index card. I dont remember what verse I was meditating on, but I do remember that suddenly it felt as if my entire being was enveloped in an overwhelming sense of love and awe. I swirled around and leaned against the wall. I love Your Word, O Lord, I said in a hushed voice. I love Your Word! I couldnt stop saying it. I wasnt just expressing my appreciation for the verse I was studying, but for Gods entire Word, His whole being everything He is and everything He has meant to me! And as I proclaimed my love for His Word, my heart was filled with indebtedness for the love I knew He had for me. And then, with toothbrush still in hand, tears streamed down my face. My heart felt as if it would burst with love for my Lord. The sweetness of that moment has stayed with me. I love memorizing verses and this is a great verse to start with: Psalm 119:11 (NIV): I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Sheryl H.

From Page 3ABOAT RAMPS, BEACHESCommissioner Jerry Moore said the boat ramp at Shell Point Beach will soon be a reality, now that the county owns the land and construction can begin. Were hoping to be splashing boats in there by January or February, County Administrator David Edwards said. Merritt added the ramp will be in the boat basin on the side that does not get clogged with grass, and is not affected by the wind. Also, a $980,000 DEP project to renourish the beach at Shell Point means 15,000 yards of beach sand will be dumped on the county property to create more of a sandy beachfront, And make it a real beach, Merritt said. In other beach news, Merritt announced that $1.3 million has been procured through BPs Natural Environmental Resource Damage Assessment for a boat ramp at Mashes Sands, and walking trails. DEP will be hiring a design rm for the project, Edwards said. SIGNS ON TREESCommission candidate and code enforcement board member Steve Cushman said Kessler was seen nailing pro-wetlands amendment signs to trees along Wakulla County roadways, which is a violation of the sign ordinance. I would expect a sitting county commissioner to set a better example than that, Cushman said. Kessler asked for guidance from county staff, and said if he was wrong to nail signs to trees with permission on private property, it will be corrected. Planning and Zoning Director Luis Serna said that nailing signs to a tree meets the de nition of a snipe sign, but political signs are exempt from permitting and are commonly attached to fences and trees. Since these signs are temporary, they are not considered illegal snipe signs, as long as they are located outside of the right of way and not posted to power poles. Commission Chair Richard Harden said it was ironic that the environmentally sensitive wetlands ordinance forbids building within 75 feet of a wetland, but it is OK to nail a sign into a tree. Thats indicative of the problem with the whole ordinance, really, and its hypocrisy, Harden said. I dont hear the tree crying, Kessler said. In other news from the meeting: The board issued a proclamation that October 2014 is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Kathy Asbell, Refuge House Inc. adult advocate, invited the public to an event on Tuesday, Oct. 21 to hear Dr. Gwen Williams discuss her book about domestic violence and religion at noon at First Baptist Church of Crawfordville. Lunch will be served. RSVP 926-9005. Citizen Hugh Taylor brought a protest sign to the meeting that said, Equal work for equal pay, and admonished Commissioner Moore for telling a 14-year-old protestor to Get a job as she held the same sign at a recent gubernatorial campaign stop. Its very brave of you to confront a 14-year-old young lady, Taylor said, encouraging Moore to apologize.

If Im going out into an open area like along the coast, I may place my spotting scope in the trunk of my car, just in case some critter is spotted that Id like a closer look at. I see lots of beasties along the road too, but many are DORs Dead On Road. I particularly like walking the beach in Franklyn County in Carrabelle out to McKissack Point to study shorebirds, shells, and whatever else nature might expose me to. Certainly my favorite though is St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, and its Wildlife Drive out to the Lighthouse. One sees deer (the bucks now have their antlers fully developed), otter, racoons, and occasionally bobcat or even a bear. Once in a while youll see wild turkey and now the Bald Eagles are in, and they are a real treat. Patti and I spotted them six or eight times the last time we toured the refuge. Of course what youll see mostly out there are the birds, so I guess that makes us bird watchers, or birders. But a day even a half day, just smelling the roses or seeing the wildlife can be very rewarding. We thrive on it! Recently on our drives through the refuge weve been treated to a REAL SHOW as we call it! Stony Bayou Pool No. 1 (the rst big body of water on your left as you drive out towards the lighthouse) has had about a foot of water drained from it exposing the mud ats, and also providing a higher concentration of sh. The last few times we been by there it has been alive with birds. On Sept. 20 the high tide was up along our coast pushing the waders inland more when Patti and I got to Stony Bayou and we gured there may have been close to 300 Great Egrets feeding along the lakes edge. A good majority were right next to the drive too. Along with around 18 Great Blue Herons, plus the usual Little Blue, and Tricolored, Herons and Snowy Egrets as well. The Great Egrets seemed to all be looking off into the distance, with their bills level to the water, but when viewed head on, youll note that their head is somewhat triangular in shape, and the eyes are positioned in such a way that they view under their bill. So, though it may look like they are looking into the distance they are actually looking down at about a 45-degree angle in front of them, searching for prey. Many birds were catching sh as we watched, and despite the sh appearing way too big to swallow they snarfed them down anyway! All birds have quadrate bones between their skull and lower mandibile, which allows the exible lower mandibile to bend out from the skull, giving them a huge gape, in turn allowing much larger prey to be swallowed! We observed eight Roseate Spoonbills among the other birds, and like the storks they too were mostly young birds in their light pink (nearly white in fact) plumage. To my joy we also saw perhaps 20 to 30 Bluewinged Teal mostly in flight. In the summer while nesting and rearing young they were in their eclipse plumage. That is, the drakes molt out the bright breeding plumage, and take on the hens more drab plumage to camou age the whole family better, for he and the hen both stay with the young ducklings while the ducklings develop their ight feathers. And to make sure the parents do stay with their young, the parents also shed all their ight feathers, at the same time the young are ightless neat! So the Blue-wings we now see pretty much all look like hens, but as winter sets in, you will note more and more the drakes will start getting back their drake showy plumage for next springs breeding displays. Soon the lovely Greenwinged Teal will arrive locally (if not already), then the showy American Wigeon (formally Widgeon), and then the waterfowl of many species arrive. A show we all enjoy! On Sept. 25, Patti and I returned to Stony Bayou Pool No. 1. This time the tide was low on our coastal mud ats, yet still Pool No. 1 had a ton of birds. We spotted Yellow Warblers feeding in the willows, and a Caspian Tern circling the lake as well as Ospreys, and more eagles. On the mud ats surrounding the small islands next to the road, were a few shorebirds. Among the Simipalmated Sandpipers, and simipalmated Plovers, plus Black-bellied Plovers was a Golden Plover. Always a treat! The Black-bellied have gray back feathers with a whitish trim, but the golden has brownish back feathers with a tan or nearly golden trim. It stood out! Then we saw three Pectoral Sandpipers. The streaking on their breast ends abruptly, which gives them their name. We also saw Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, plus Dunlin, and Least Sandpipers. In just a few hours our eyes and ears, had recorded 40 species of birds, seen a gob of wildflowers and butterflies, plus spectacular clouds.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 Page 11A There is never a wrong time to look back and reflect on what makes our nation what it is today. Member Mark Rosen shared with us the following information he received from a colleague. It is always good to look back and re ect on those who made our organization (the entire Coast Guard Family) great and riddled with many moments that should well up pride and honor for every member connected to the Coast Guard. Signalman first class (SM1c) Douglas A. Munro, USCG, died on Sept. 27, 1942 during the Battle of Guadalcanal when he maneuvered his landing craft into the line of re so as to protect a group of evacuating Marines. He was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. He is buried at the Laurel Hill Memorial Park Cemetery in Cle Elum, Wash., his hometown. The U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Marine Corps conduct a joint ceremony there each year in commemoration of his sacri ce. This year marked the 71st anniversary of his death. To read more about him, go to www.uscg. mil/history/people/ munrodouglasindex. asp. This weekend, local auxiliarists will be coming together for the Fall Division meeting. Members will come from across the division to meet at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve in Eastpoint. With five flotillas, it is a time to discuss progress in furthering the Coast Guard mission and support each others efforts. With a nip of cooler air, it is beginning to feel a lot like fall! That means Halloween is right around the corner. The Coast Guard Cutter Cypress, home ported in Pensacola, will be hosting its 3rd annual Haunted Ship in conjunction with a food drive. The Haunted Ship will be opened to the public while it is moored in downtown Pensacola for the Halloween event. Cost of admission is requested, but not required one nonperishable food item. All food items will be donated to Manna, a local Pensacola charity. They will in turn distribute all the food donations to local pantries to stock the shelves before the holiday seasons. For more information about Mannas charity organization please visit http:// www.mannafoodpantries.org. We look forward to scaring you.

For more than a week now I have been diligently working with my gentleman farmer youngest brother way out west in Oregon. He lives in a ranch-like home with boardwalks that overlook the Sauslaw Valley, very near the Paci c Ocean. During our lunch break we could watch the salmon shing boats run up and down the river, a thousand feet below. I am a frequent visitor, driving further west after the DEMA Diving Convention every two years, to visit vendors and his farm. Yes, I drive across the country often. Every year he shows off his crop of corn, apples, tomatoes, beans, various berries and now artichokes! His Rhode Island Red chickens are almost pets, following him and the deer that invade the property looking for a stray apple thrown their way. The eggs are so fresh and delicious; I better appreciate the trend these days for many in Wakulla to have a ock at home. And they keep the place clear of bugs! He tells me hes considering cows in his pasture next year, what with the price of milk and beef these days. He is more than just a subsistence farmer. He has embraced photovoltaic power on his roof, and recycles just about everything. Many years ago he told me about making biodiesel. I researched the idea out and found economy in the technology. I built my rst Appleseed reactor within the year and when I next visited him, I was driving a diesel Jetta and pulling a trailer with all my fuel for the entire 6,000 mile trip. I then taught him how to blend fuels on my next visit. But he carried it much further. Ever heard of an oil furnace? He now uses the same oil from local restaurants to heat his home in the winter. He has a diesel generator coming on line and expects to exceed his power requirements using recycled energy very soon. Two years ago I arrived to nd he had taken the next step converting his car into a grease car. Rather than blend fuels, he simply burns the raw oil straight. He captured my attention when passing through that year, and yes, my Jetta is now a grease car. We returned from Oregon, a 3,000 mile trip, on one very large tank of used cooking oil. Of course this was all several years ago and things improve. One could say we were barnstorming back then. But today, automation and computer control is the next best option. I found myself at his place during this years pilgrimage out west, after dragging an old sailboat across the country for my daughter, Nicole. She has a new job as an engineer for a Department of Energy funded laboratory in Washington State. It took the diesel Sprinter to accomplish this task! I then left my wife to visit with relatives in Washington and I lit out for Oregon. When my brother heard I had brought this vehicle, he suggested we convert it to grease as well. New, computer controlled kits are available in Seattle, so as I passed through, I picked one up. The proposed weekend project took more than a week of 16 hour days, but in the end, we did a ne job and made up a stock of 150 gallons of cooking oil to get home with. As I progress into retirement, I nd myself rediscovering values that our ancestors knew a long time ago how to stay warm, get around and live well using recycled materials as just one example. Now, what am I going to tell my wife when she nds out what I did with the Sprinter! Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBUSINESS NEWS By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsHusband and wife team, Gordon and A.J. McCleary, started Flying Papi, a food truck business specializing in hot dogs, just four and a half months ago. Since then, theyve developed a business plan, purchased a used food truck, worked out the details, made adjustments and have been on the constant learning treadmill of operating their own small business for the rst time. Its been a learning experience, says A.J. McCleary. What were doing is fun. Its different. Vendors like us, were part of the foundation of this country, says Gordon, who was born in Boston to immigrant parents in 1957. In the early 1900s street vendors were everywhere. Its the American way, he continues. Were living the American Dream. Just recently, Flying Papi received an award from the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce as the Start-up Business of 2014. I knew we had been nominated, and it was a great feeling, but we didnt expect anything more, Gordon McCleary says. But when I heard our name mentioned, it was so exciting. It was like an Academy Award to us. Working together on a food truck business means a lot of time and a lot of hard work together. Their food service usually starts at 10:30 a.m. and stays open until 6 p.m. Gordon says that sometimes its 9 p.m. before theyve nished for the day. Tall and lanky, wearing a bright yellow shirt, with a baseball style cap, Gordon McCleary is an energetic man in his 50s who says he is all about being part of his community. As much as I can, I try to keep the business local, says Gordon. I believe in the idea of business to business. Early every morning I pick up our special order of fresh baked buns at Karens Kitchen Bakery, he says. It reminds me of that old television show, Cheers, he says. I walk in and everybody says Hi Gordon, Good morning Gordon. Its that kind of feel. And he says that the buns he gets here are part of what makes their dogs the best. They have created a delicious bun for us, using a potato bread recipe, he says. I feel that what weve developed is a sturdier bun, without being too bready. And its great for soaking up all the juices. In addition, McCleary considers Tim Rose, the owner of Macks Meats, located at the intersection of Spring Creek and Shadeville Highways, a close friend and con dant. Macks is used as the commissary for their food truck business. In Florida, a food truck business license must list a commercial kitchen to be used for food preparation and cleaning. He knows a lot about meat, hes a meat man, says Gordon. He helped us nd our Grand Papi, a foot long hot dog, and the biggest dog they serve. In addition, they use Bradley sausages from the locally well-known Bradleys Country Store in Tallahassee, as well as some of their sauces. A.J. makes the coleslaw fresh every day with a special, secret recipe. Its my own recipe, that I wont reveal, she says. But the secret is that I put a lot of love and passion into my coleslaw. Until a few months ago, Gordon worked for the State of Florida in the Department of Financial Services, and A.J. worked for Comcast. They both quit their jobs and dipped into their savings to start Flying Papi. The name of the business came from their oldest grandson, Jackson, who is four. One day they were tossing around ideas for a name and they asked Jackson what he thought. He calls his grandpa, Papi. He told them when the hatches are open on the truck it looks like its ying. So why not call it Flying Papi? They had an artist render a logo of a truck tire with wings. Flying Papi hot dogs range in style, avor and size. The most simple, and popular dog of all, The Wakulla Dog, is an all-beef, regular size hot dog with all the regular condiments, served on a fresh baked bun. Their signature hot dog is called Chicago Style Dog, made with mustard, relish, chopped onions, tomato slices, peppers, pickle spear, and a dash of celery salt. As well there is The Chow Dog, The Papi Dog, The Chili Dog, The Southern Slaw Dog, The Flying Joe Dog, The BBQ Dog, and more. They use all beef dogs, with fresh buns, fresh condiments and make the dogs in front of you while you wait. We have a small tent, with chairs and tables, so our customers can sit and enjoy their food, says Gordon. We enjoy getting to know our customers. Recently, a man was here getting a dog and I noticed a purple heart tag on his car. So, when I handed him his dog, I simply said thank you for your service, explains Gordon. He sat down and we started talking about his experience in Iraq. We take genuine interest in our customers, he says. Thats what its all about. We get down on the street level with our customers. Were always trying out new ideas, says Gordon. We want to be known as having the best hot dog in North Florida. Thats our goal. Some people come back and tell us its the best dog theyve ever eaten, he smiles. And if you want something besides a dog, they also offer grilled cheese and other kinds of sandwiches, hamburgers, cole slaw, potato salad, chips, and drinks. To nd out where Flying Papi will be set up on any given day, or weekend, you can use a texting service they use called V.I.P. To sign up, text the word PAPI to the phone number 40518, and youll receive a text back with their location and a daily special for V.I.P. customers only.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comAutumn in Wakulla County is typi ed by several activities which have a longstanding tradition for both male and female residents. Of course, FSU football is at the top of the list with the team expected to have another successful year. The other outdoor institution for many is the annual deer hunting season. The Florida Wildlife Commission has the western portion of Wakulla County in Zone D and the eastern portion in Zone C. Zone Cs archery season has opened and Zone D will open on Oct. 25, according to FWCs website. The dividing line for most of Wakulla County is U.S. Highway 319. Odocoileus virginianus osceolais is the scienti c name of the white-tailed deer subspecies living in Wakulla County and much of Panhandle Florida. It is a member of the Cervidae family which includes moose, elk, and reindeer. The white-tailed deers home range extends from Canada to Peru. There are more than 40 subspecies which cover this territory, each with their own unique features. The first fossil records of deer date back to the Oligocene epoch about 30 million years ago. These early European deer were small by contemporary standards, but grew to impressive dimensions over time. The Irish elk was the largest of these early deer. It stood about seven feet at the shoulder and had a 12 foot wide set of antlers. The origin of the term deer dates back to Old English and was applied to any kind of wild animal. Over the decades the use was re ned to only members of the Cervidea family. The hunting seasons generally coincides with the whitetailed deers mating season, locally known as the rut. During this period the deer are very active and move around frequently, so hunting or not, deer sightings increase. It is common to see a herd of does, some with yearling fawns in fields, pastures and even on highway shoulders. This year many of the fawns have been reported to still have spots on their backs, indicating a very young age. Bucks are quite a different story. During most of the year they are missing the antlers and stay in small groups of exclusively males. During late spring the antlers begin to develop. They are covered with a thin living tissue containing many blood vessels and which is commonly called velvet. During this period males begin to separate and lead solitary lives. They occasionally can be seen in pairs, but are usually in pursuit of one or more does. The antlers are tools to establishment of dominance over other bucks. As a buck ages, up to a point, the antlers become larger and multi-pronged, but genetics and available nutrition play a role in their development. If a buck survives past his physical peak, the antlers decline in size and complexity. On rare occasions a doe will have antlers. After rut the bucks antlers are shed, and then consumed by insects. The gestation period for the does is about 200 days, ending with one, two and infrequently three fawns. The fawns arrive just in time to see Mike Martin begin another successful season of FSU baseball.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netFriday nights game against East Gadsden was the Keith Gavin Show. The Wakulla speedster showed why hes been sought-after by Division I programs around the country: Every time he touched the ball, he scored a touchdown. Gavin took the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. Then he caught three passes, and took them all in for touchdowns. That was all in the rst quarter and into the second quarter. In fact, Gavin had scored all of the War Eagles points it was 28-0 with a minute gone in the second. Then Cody Twist caught a TD pass to make it 35-0, and the clock started running under the mercy rule before the half. Twist added to his own highlight reel in the third quarter when, on defense, he recovered a fumble and took it in for a score to make it 42-0. Once again, the War Eagles had scored more than 40 points as they have in every game so far and they did it scoring on offense, defense and special teams. It was also a lockdown performance by the Wakulla defense. It wasnt clear at the end of the game if the Jaguars offense had even managed positive yardage during the night. We came out clicking on all cylinders, said Head Coach Scott Klees. The offense looked good we played extremely well in all three phases of the game, offense, defense and special teams. With the game up 35-0 and a running clock, the Wakulla offense only ran four plays in the second half. Quarterback Feleipe Franks, who leads district 5A quarterbacks with 1,165 yards, added to his statistics going 5-for-8 for 119 yards and three touchdowns, all to Gavin. Gavin caught three passes for 86 yards, taking all three to the house. The other TD pass was thrown by backup QB Chris Beverly, getting some playing time in front of injured Bucky McGlammery. Klees singled out Cody Twist for his touchdown catch and fumble recovery for a score, with the coach saying he was proud of Twists play. All in all, Klees was pleased with the East Gadsden game, saying it was a good tune up in preparation for the big game the one that players and fans have been looking forward to since the season started when Wakulla, now ranked No. 2 in the state in Division 5A, takes on the No. 4 ranked team and district rival Godby Cougars. LOOKING TO GODBY I think its going to be one heck of a football game, Klees said. I see two evenly matched teams playing. Its going to be a physical game, he said. Klees noted that, during his time as head coach at Wakulla, the War Eagles have gone 4-4 against Godby. Theyve been to the state championship and won; we went to the state championship and lost, he said. Weve won the district three times; theyve won the district three times. Thats about as even as it gets, Klees said. But Klees is counting on the home eld and fans to give his team an edge. Playing at home is a huge advantage for us, he said. We dont have many losses here. And when our fans get going, theres nothing like it.

Page 2B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 thewakullanews.comsports news and team views SportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track CoachThe WHS boys and girls cross country teams competed at the Tallahassee City Open Cross Country Meet on Saturday, Sept. 27, that was held at Silver Lake in the Apalachicola National Forest in conjunction with the Annual Prefontaine Forest Run 5K. This race has been run in the forest for 27 years and has had many course changes, but one constant is that, whatever the course, they have all been extemely challenging and are true cross country courses. Six teams from the Tallahassee area competed, with both of the local squads placing second overall to the Maclay teams. Sophomore Haleigh Martin had another outstanding run, nishing rst among the girls and winning her third consecutive overall title. The local boys were once again led by sophomore Bryce Cole, who ran 18:35 and placed fourth overall, in the fastest time any WHS runner has run on the course while in high school. WHS alum and current FSU cross country and track runner Stanley Linton won the race in 2012, the fall after he graduated, in 17:20. Cole was followed closely by Lane Williams who was 5th in 18:42. Other scoring for the WHS team were Travis Parks (13th/20:19), Dylan Peebles (16th/20:25) and Evan Guarino (17th/20:28). Overall, nine boys ran sub-21:00 on this extemely challenging course, which is the most the local team has ever had at this meet. Martin led the way for the local girls in the excellent time of 21:19, which is the second fastest time ever for a WHS girl at this meet, behind only Sydney Nuttings time of 21:08, in 2007. She was followed to the line by senior Lydia Wiedeman (6th/23:55), Connie Lewis (8th/24:27), Juliana Prestia (10th/26:31) and Emily Lawrence (11th/26:39). Although the course was really tough, three WHS runners still managed to record PRs (personal records). These included: Matthew St. Martin (24:57), Juliana Prestia (26:32) and Deanthony Albert (27:09). In the accompanying Prefontaine Forest Run 5K, former WHS standout and current Life College cross country and track runner, Cora Atkinson, back in the area on break between quarters, ran the race as a workout, but still finished as the first overall female in 22:30. On Saturday, Oct. 4, the teams will travel to Panama City to participate in the 4th Annual Rutherford Ran Run, held at the Callaway Recreational Complex in Spring eld.By JOEY JACOBSRMS CoachAt the halfway point of the 2014 football season, the young RMS Bears are feeling the pangs of a rebuilding year, but the coaches are hopeful that they are starting to nd their identity. The Bears record stands at 1-3 presently, but the coaching staff agrees that the Bears are getting better every week. Riversprings started the season by taking on cross-county rival Wakulla Middle. WMS well oiled power running game proved too much for the young Bears, sprinting to a 38-0 victory over RMS. Up next for the Bears was perennial power Marianna. Riversprings played the Bulldogs to a halftime score of 8-6. The score stood at 16-12 early in the 4th quarter, but a Marianna offensive explosion propelled the dogs to a 38-12 victory. Next up for the Bears was the Bulldogs, this time though it would be the Taylor County variety. Once again, the Bears play was dramatically improved. Riversprings led the undefeated bulldogs at halftime, but the 4th quarter once again proved to be the Bears bane. After a late RMS fumbled snap, the Bulldogs took over and punched in the game winning score, edging the Bears 28-24. Riversprings next foe was the Knights of Governors Charter Academy. The Knights had an athlete laden roster, and proved to be a competitive foe, but the Bears nally tallied a victory 32-22. RMS enjoyed an open date after the Governors Charter game, but the work will not stop. The Bears remaining schedule is tough, with opponents Suwannee, Wakulla Middle, and Madison up next. Riversprings is approaching the remainder of the season keeping in mind that their goals are still attainable, most importantly the County Championship.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 Page 3B By MARTY COHEN COHENS CORNER: Confession time, and this can be veri ed The Corner is a major league chicken, a wuss if youd like. But knowing the consequences of certain actions, The Corner amended a prediction for the rst time in 30plus years of tapping the keyboard about Florida athletics. Knowing we would get barbecued on the message boards for such a prediction, The Corner softened his predicted score for the FloridaAlabama game, which was 37-17 Tide when we published the Breakin It Down segment in the Gator Bait Express on Wednesday, a day before it appears on the website on Thursday. The Corner weaseled out for a 27-17 score, knowing we would still catch heat (and we sure did) for also giving Alabama the edge in every category. We are hardly gloating, in fact, were a bit chagrined at the lack of guts, but knowing theres a segment that doesnt particularly care for anything we write, just thought it was the safer route to lighten the score prediction, kind of like a radio version of a song with salty language. If like Muschamp is foWhile this may be blasphemy, The Corner feels we should hold off on the coronation of sophomore cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III as well. Hargreaves is a ne player, but he is still in the early stages of his career. Opponents dont seem to fear him all that much and in the litany of great Gator cornerbacks, hes got a ways to go to reach the top (occupied by Jarvis Williams, Joe Haden and Fred Weary in our book). Plus in terms of the next level, hes a bit small especially in an era where wide receivers are expanding in size. And for all the poppycock about how the defense wore down in the second half, played the run well for three quarters (a Muschamp assertion) and got no help from the offense please. Alabama converting 12 of 16 third down attempts had nothing to do with the lack of consistency from the Gator offense. Stopping the run for three quarters is a bit of a joke, considering Bama had thrown for 406 yards by the outset of the fourth quarter. And one last thing heres how The Corner would handle the dicey quarterback situation next Saturday at Tennessee regardless of the situation or field position, Driskel gets the rst two series and freshman backup Treon Harris gets the third series. Complete series, dont care if the drive starts on the Gator 2-yard line or the Vols 10-yard line. Everybody on the team will know it, so its not a surprise to anyone. Found this interesting and in the take-it-forwhat-its-worth category, although The Corner does nd it signi cant in his fourth season at the UF helm, Muschamp has utilized 19 different assistant coaches, with 10 changes in that short span of time. Now some were ill-fated decisions by Muschamp and some of it was beyond his control, but if the belief that coaching stability is an important factor for any staff in any sport, its clearly another issue that has plagued Muschamps regime. Perhaps its no coincidence that at wide receiver where Florida has had six different coaches the last six years the play has fallen off even from last years level, under the direction of rstyear college coach, former quarterback Chris Leak.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gators By TIM LINAFELT RALEIGH, N.C. Under usual circumstances, Jimbo Fisher would probably prefer his freshmen play extended minutes after a game has already been decided. Saturday at North Carolina State, Fisher and the Florida State Seminoles didnt have that luxury. A rash of injuries at some positions and some thinning depth at others led to several FSU freshmen playing signi cant action during FSUs 56-41 win over the Wolfpack. And, for the most part, the youngsters represented themselves in ne fashion. Its good for the future, but thats what we do here at Florida State, junior linebacker Terrance Smith said. We recruit very well and were always bringing in top-quality guys. Those guys were all over the eld at Carter-Finley Stadium. There was Dalvin Cook showing off impressive vision and breakaway speed on a 19yard touchdown run through the tiniest of holes, part of a 45-yard day. And there was Travis Rudolph dancing and tip-toeing through N.C. State defenders for a 40-yard gain on his rst career catch. Fifteen (Rudolph), I mean. He was awesome, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. Weve got to keep getting that guy the ball now. But it was a pair of passrushing defensive ends that had the biggest impact. With Florida State struggling all day to wrap up elusive quarterback Jacoby Brissett, freshmen Lorenzo Featherston and Jacob Pugh proved to be an unexpected cure for what ailed the defense. The pair combined for perhaps the play of the game when, late in the fourth quarter, Featherston rushed in on Brissett and forced a fumble. Pugh recovered at the N.C. State 6-yard line and, two plays later, Winston connected with Rashad Greene for a touchdown pass that gave the Seminoles their first lead of the game. Featherston, who at 6-7, 220 pounds easily stands out in the huddle, nished with five tackles, a sack and 1.5 tackles for loss. And Pugh, a Tallahassee native, added three tackles, a tackle for loss and a pass break-up. Fisher after the game had a hard time nding words to describe them. Those guys, now, just hang on, he said. They bring an extra edge of athleticism and length and size. Those two are extremely athletic. And, along with the rest of them, extremely promising. After a series of close calls in September, FSU will next face ACC opponents Wake Forest and Syracuse, teams that it beat last year by a combined score of 118-6. Which means that FSUs freshman class could be in line for even more chances to show off. All those young guys are playmakers, quarterback Jameis Winston said. Having those guys step up, the guys behind everything, that means a lot.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 Page 5BLooking back at rock n rolls KingBy MAYS LEROY GRAYWriter, Elvis tribute dancerThe Elvis Presley story is one worth telling, for it is full of vision, courage, inspiration and success. Elvis Presley is as American as Apple Pie, Chevrolet, Harley Davidson, and continues to be a musical legend. During his musical career, Elvis Presley went on to become one of the most famous and beloved artist in the history of entertainment. Today, 37 years after his death, he remains to be a cultural icon in America and a global legend. He remains to be the best selling solo artist in the history of popular music. Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Miss. along with a stillborn twin brother, Jessie Garon Presley. Elvis received his name Elvis, from his Father, whose middle name was Elvis. As the only child of Vernon and Gladys Presley he experienced a hard life, and hard times in Mississippi, during the Great Depression. Throughout her life, Elviss mother gave him her loving support. In 1946 when Elvis was 11 years old, his mother gave him a guitar an act of love, which would change his life forever. Practicing each day, Elvis taught himself to sing solo, and play the guitar by ear. During this period in his life, his parents attended the First Assembly of God Church, where he learned to sing and play highly spirited Gospel music. Soon, in search of better jobs Elviss father would move the family to Memphis, Tenn. With long hours and hard work he managed to support his family. In 1953, at the age of 18, Elvis graduated from Humes High School in Memphis, and he hit the ground running with his musical career. Early in his career the singing and playing of Bill Monroe and Hank Snow, as well as traditional Memphis blues, bluegrass, and Gospel music, in uenced him. Soon he developed the Elvis style and voice. A rich baritone voice with rhythmical sound and perfect pitch. With his handsomesultry facial expressions, and feet dancing and shaking to his hot rhythms, the musical world fans, agents, promoters and recording companies began to notice. For the most part, the serious side of Elvis Presley goes unreported. He took his gifted singing, playing and dancing seriously. Those who knew him; his family, studios, promoters, etc., experienced his TCB, (Taking Care of Business) side. To date, I have not found a photograph of Elvis Presley smiling. 1954 was a big year for Elvis. At the age of 19, Elvis Presley began to travel through the South giving shows, and utilizing his unusual singing, playing, and lively dancing gyrations. On May 12 and 13, 1955, Elvis performed along with Hank Snow at the athletic park in Jacksonville, Fla., possibly the Gator Bowl. As Elvis, then 20 years old, nished his show, the young girls mobbed him, chased him down, tore his shirt off and stole his belt. To escape Elvis took refuge in a sidebar and was assisted by two sympathetic ladies who fed him ice cream from an icebox. After that experience, Elvis hired a security guard who traveled with him during his performances. Soon his shows caught the attention of Colonel Tom Parker, a well-known promoter who heard about Elvis and the audience reaction he received. Parker signed Elvis to a longterm contract and began to promote and introduce his new star to Hollywood, television and a worldwide audience. Meanwhile, Elvis was recording for Producer Sam Phillips and his Sun Label. Later, Colonel Parker persuaded RCA to buy Elviss contract from Sun for $35,000, a huge sum at the time. On Jan. 27, 1956, RCA released Elviss Presleys rst No. 1 single, Heartbreak Hotel, which quickly went Gold and Elvis was on his way to stardom. In order to showcase his artist, Colonel Parker booked Elvis for two appearances on the Milton Berle Show. On July 1, 1956, Elvis appeared on NBCS Steve Allen Show. On Sept. 9, 1956, Elvis made his rst appearance on the CBS Ed Sullivan Show. 60 million viewers watched 82 percent of the television audience. Elvis appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show two more times, each of which resulted in record high TV ratings. For his three appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show Elvis was paid $50,000, the highest amount ever paid to a professional to appear on TV at that time. From 1950 through 1953, the US was involved in the Korean War, a costly war in American lives and resources. Although Elvis was too young for the draft he maintained a strong sense of patriotism. On March 24, 1958, Elvis went into the US Army. Sadly while in the Army, Elviss mother, Gladys, died on Aug. 14, 1958, and he was given an emergency leave to attend his mothers funeral. After serving two years, on March 5, 1960, he received an honorable discharge from the Army. While stationed overseas in Germany Elvis met and fell in love with a beautiful girl. Her name was Priscilla Beaulieu, the young daughter of an US Army Captain; and in time, they began to date. In addition to television appearances, Hollywood wanted in. Elvis signed a movie contract with Hal Wallis and Paramount Pictures, and Elvis starred in 31 feature lms. Meanwhile, Elvis had 149 hit songs on Billboards Hot 100 Pop Chart of America, as well as many hits on the American country, R&B, and Gospel charts. On May 1, 1967, at the age of 32, Elvis married Priscilla Beaulieu, and nine months later, on Feb. 1, 1968, their daughter Lisa Marie Presley was born. In 1973 Elvis and Priscilla divorced; however, they remained close. Elvis enjoyed worldwide popularity. More people watched Elviss Aloha From Hawaii Concert on television in 1973, than watched the rst moon landing by Neal Armstrong. Nearly 1.5 billion people in 40 different countries tuned in to watch the Elvis show. Elvis received 14 Grammy nominations and three wins; one of the ten Outstanding Young Men of America for 1970 by the United States Jaycees; and the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1971. In 1993, the U.S. Postal Service issued an Elvis stamp. It has become the top-selling stamp in the history of the US Postal Service, selling 500 million, and still climbing. Both Elvis parents are buried at Graceland. Elvis Arron Presley died on Aug. 16, 1977 at the age of 42, and he is also buried at Graceland. Today, Graceland is one of the ve most visited home tours in the US, and is the most famous home in America after the White House. More than 500,000 people visit Graceland each year. In 2006 it was designated a National Historic Landmark. Situated on 13 acres, Elvis bought Graceland in 1957, and constructed improvements and additions to suit his needs. Today, Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley continue to be closely involved with the Elvis Brand; the management team of the Elvis Presley Trust and its business entity, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. (EPE). Reportedly, there are more than 350 of cial Elvis Presley Fan Clubs around the world. They represent 44 of the 50 states and 45 different countries. They all say that Elvis lives! Recently Elvis and Priscilla were spotted at the 36th Annual Swamp Stomp Music Festival at the Tallahassee Museum. Some say that they were holding hands and doing the Elvis Boogie Woogie! They say there was a whole lotta shakin going on! And on... Only in America.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 2, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Sept. 26 Summer of cially ended last Monday, and the temperature seemed to drop in Tallahassee. It wasnt cool, per se, but at least going outside wasnt walking into a skin-melting blast furnace. But even as the weather cooled, two long-running dramas heated up. At Florida State University, a controversial and at times bumbling presidential search nally settled on the man many assumed would get the job all along: Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine. And in the governors race, supporters of incumbent Gov. Rick Scott and Democratic candidate Charlie Crist traded charges of dirty tricks in one of the nations most closely-watched contests. Crists campaign and its Democratic allies slammed the Republican Party of Florida for allegedly spying on a fundraiser, while Scott and the state GOP accused Democratic National Committee Chairwoman and Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of crossing the line with comments that seemed to compare Republican policies to domestic abuse. Neither story is likely to die down anytime soon. Thrasher is still technically running for re-election his appointment doesnt become of cial until its approved by the state university systems Board of Governors and the election that will end the governors race remains more than a month away.PRESIDENT THRASHER (FINALLY)In 2012, Thrasher, a former House speaker, took part in what amounted to a palace coup that would have moved up his potential presidency of the Senate. The effort failed, though, and Thrasher faced the prospect of serving out the last four years of his tenure with little to no chance of leading the chamber. But the in uential senator will still get the title of president, this time as the head of his alma mater. The Florida State University Board of Trustees voted 11-2 on Tuesday to give the job to Thrasher, who had long been seen as the front-runner for the position. In addition to the perks of the job like free admission to football games played by his beloved Seminoles Thrasher now faces the challenge of moving the institution forward while winning the support of large portions of the faculty and student body who opposed him. This is the scary choice, not the safe choice, Faculty Senate President Gary Tyson, who sits on the board, told his fellow trustees Tuesday. Others also expressed concerns that Thrasher wouldnt live up to the expectations that he could increase the Legislatures support for the school or that his political fundraising skills wouldnt translate to the need to raise money for academia. One opponent called the search process sketchy, one labeled Thrasher an overlord, another said the trustees were announcing support for athletics over academics, and one even threatened, We will make John Thrashers life here at Florida State a living hell. Thrasher stayed away from any premature celebrations, given that the Board of Governors has to approve his candidacy though that is largely expected to be a formality. He was also beginning to reach out to those who opposed him or ran against him for the presidency, from Tyson to FSU Provost Garnett Stokes, who has served as interim president.EXIT FROM POLITICSFollowing the suggestion of trustees, Thrasher resigned Wednesday from his role as chairman of Scotts re-election effort. But he declined to give up his own bid for another term in the Senate, pointing to the fact that he wasnt of cially the president of FSU yet. The decision also avoids a process that would allow local Republican leaders to choose a replacement candidate for Thrasher, as would have been the case if Thrasher stepped down immediately. Instead, a special election will be held next year to fill the seat, assuming Thrasher wins in November. I think I probably ought to prevail in the (November) campaign, and then if Im successful the day after with the Board of Governors, then I can submit my resignation and allow the governor to call a special election, Thrasher said. That way the person, whoever it is, can be vetted by the voters. This is for a four-year term in the Florida Senate. Its a big deal in my opinion. In the opinion of a few House members as well, who will be able to run in the special election but wouldnt have been eligible under state law to run for the Senate seat in November if Thrasher had left right away. Some legislators are already saying they would be interested in running in a special election. If that happens, I would certainly be considering it strongly, said Rep. Ronald Doc Renuart, a three-term Republican from Ponte Vedra Beach. Rep. Travis Hutson, RElkton, said he would also take a look at running. I would like to get with my community and make sure its the right thing, said Hutson, a House freshman unopposed in his bid for reelection. And Derek Hankerson, who drew a little less than 30 percent of the vote against Thrasher in this years Republican primary, said he would jump into the race as well. Hankerson filed paperwork this week to set up a campaign for the 2018 elections, which could be converted to an account for the special election once its announced.NIXONIAN VS. WILDLY INSULTINGThere have been times that it seemed unlikely that the race between Scott and Crist could get any nastier but both campaigns seem to view that kind of thinking as a challenge. This week, things took another step down and into some bizarre territory. Democrats accused GOP staffers of lming people who arrived at a fundraiser for Crist held at Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tants home. The allegations, reported by the Associated Press, also included charges that Republicans had taken pictures of the license plates of those in attendance. Its not entirely clear what Republicans were hoping to accomplish, given that a list of everyone who contributes to Crists campaign is a regularly updated public record. In a media availability Friday, Tant ripped into the GOP over the incident, calling it Nixonian and Orwellian and using other, only slightly less colorful adjectives. In America, we get to take a stand with our voices, with our presence and with our dollars for whom we choose to support without any kind of dictatorial backlash for doing that, Tant said. Coincidentally or not (read: probably not), footage soon emerged on the political blog of the Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald showing Wasserman Schultz saying that Scott has given us the back of his hand. The remarks, made about a month ago, bore a striking resemblance to Wasserman Schultzs complaint about Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, though in that case she said Walker has given women the back of his hand. Wasserman Schultz apologized for the earlier incident. Asked during her Friday availability about the remarks regarding Scott, Tant said she agreed with Wasserman Schultzs earlier comments during the Walker brouhaha that the national chairwoman wouldnt use those words again. Tant addressed the comments a few minutes after her counterpart, Republican Party of Florida Chairwoman Leslie Dougher, called for Tant and Crist to condemn Wasserman Schultzs wildly insulting statement. Her comments are especially heartless because Rick Scotts mother was going through a divorce from an abusive husband when the governor was born. ... To suggest that Rick Scott gives women the back of his hand not only grossly mischaracterizes the governor, it treats actual domestic violence victims as pawns in a political game, Dougher said in a statement issued Friday. STORY OF THE WEEK: Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, was selected by the Florida State University Board of Trustees to become the schools next president, all but assuring that he will get the job. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Mr. Scott and Mr. Crist are both looked at, meehhhh, by voters in a less than complimentary way.-Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, on a survey showing low personal marks for both major-party candidates for governor.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Mercury drops, but politics is heating up -Janet The Waku l la News For local news and photos For local news and photoswww.thewakullanews.com www.thewakullanews.com HOME COUNTRYSquash blech and cooks who try to make it edibleBy SLIM RANDLESWe can blame it all on watermelon and pumpkin pie. Both are delicious and American, and both come from gourds. Thats the problem, you see. Cooks all over the world therefore think that other gourds can be made edible, too. Gourds, for example, like squash. Squash. One of the English languages most painful words, along with maim and trauma and rend and okra and Liberace. Why would anyone want to eat something that sounds as though someone sat on it? The bottom-line truth is, cooks all over the place love a challenge, and they have tried valiantly to turn squash into an edible dish. To do this, they take one tenth of a portion of squash, boil as much of the squashiness as they can out of it, then immerse it in nine-tenths something that tastes good and hope no one will notice. You know, stuff like chile, mutton, edible vegetables, nuclear waste, cottonwood bark and even chocolate. Then, when you cant taste the squash in it, and most of the slime has settled to the bottom, they smile and say, How do you like my Squash Canneloni ala Hershey con Brio? They even try to fool people who might consider buying squash into thinking it tastes like something else. Something like butter. Or acorns. Or crooked necks. Hey, Ill take a crooked neck over a squash any day. Makes you wonder what crime against mankind Mr. Zucchini committed to be forever more squashdamned in the history books. Lets face it; squash is an unwanted growth on an otherwise perfectly good vine. It starts with a pretty little blossom that inspires Navajo jewelry and attracts bees. Then it begins its insidious malignancy into something that should probably be surgically removed. But its fall now. Autumn, that time of year when children play in the lazy sunshine and squash vines go belly up. And when we enjoy our pumpkin pie and jack olanterns. Well smile quietly, knowing well once again be squash free for a few blessed months. Brought to you by Saddle Up: A Cowboy Guide to Writing, at lpdpress. com.

Twelve ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A changing situation calls for a change in plans. Although you might prefer the schedule you had already worked up, you could do better by agreeing to make the needed adjustments. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That once seemingly rock-solid proposition you favored might be hiding some serious flaws. Take time to check it more carefully and question anything that seems out of kilter. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Finish up those lingering tasks so that you can then arrange to spend some time in quiet re ection. This will go a long way in restoring both your physical and spiritual energies. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family situation could heat up and boil over unless you deal with it as soon as possible. Try to persuade other family members to work with you to help cool things down. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cheer up, Kitty Cat! That low feeling will begin to ebb by midweek, and you should be back in the social swirl in time for the weekend. A long-postponed deal could be starting up again. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Going too fast and too far on too little knowledge could be risky. Best to slow down and check for any gaps in your information. Its what you dont know that could hurt you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Trying to make peace among quarreling family members, friends or colleagues can be tough. Expect some resistance, maybe even some expressions of resentment. But stay with it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Changing your mind doesnt have to be a problem once you realize that you might have good and suf cient cause to do so. Make your explanations clear and complete. Good luck. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unkept promise can be irksome and easily raise the Archers ire. But instead of getting into a confrontation, take time to check why someone you relied on came up short. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A new workplace distraction creates an unnecessary delay. The sooner you deal with it, the better for all concerned. A personal matter also should be attended to as soon as possible. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Once again, the Aquarians gift for applying both practical and creative methods to resolve a situation makes all the difference. Personal relationships thrive during the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A relationship appears to be losing its oncestrong appeal for reasons that might be different from what you think. An open and honest talk could lead to some surprising revelations. BORN THIS WEEK: Your life is bound by your belief that character counts more than anything else. 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
