By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netDr. Gwen Williams is proof that a calling can override other life plans. Williams, who is a Leon County Sheriffs Office victim advocate and author, will speak on her book about domestic violence and religion, at noon Tuesday, Oct. 21 at the First Baptist Church of Crawfordville. The event is organized through the Wakulla County Domestic and Sexual Violence Task Force and Refuge House Inc. Everyone is welcome. Williams has worked in victim services for more than 15 years in one capacity or another since the age of18. I feel this is my ministry and a calling I may not have necessarily chosen for myself, but Im answering, she said. I have always felt a calling to help those who are hurting and while in graduate school realized that domestic violence was an issue that needed a lot of attention both academically and systemically. I felt a calling while studying theology, to reach beyond what was in front and obvious as far as a secular means of support, and challenge the faith community to wrap their arms around those affected by domestic violence and offer encouragement. This will let the victims and survivors know that someone cares and they can be empowered and feel whole again through Christ. The book authored by Williams, God Provides a Way of Escape, discusses how the faith community can equip counselors to counsel according to the word of God, how faith leaders can encourage their congregation to encourage and empower those who they come across either in the congregation or outside of it, and how the victim can be set free from the bondage of abuse both physically, emotionally and spiritually. Williams said that through her career, she has met some amazing men and women who taught her what victimization looks and feels like. That way I know how to better serve them, Williams said. I have been able to help victims become survivors and help them put one foot in front of the other. I have experienced things that in my own strength, would have been too hard to bear, but its kept me prayerful not only for myself but those who have been affected by the harshness of life. I have learned the most from those I meet every day because they have taught me what it means to be a survivor and that has left me many times humbled. Williams said she hopes the event will allow guests to experience a renewing in their spirit to connect with and reach out to those who are affected by abuse. I hope it would also challenge the guests to integrate into their ministry an avenue to walk alongside those who are hurting, Williams said. I hope to also encourage the faith leaders to start or continue a dialogue about this issue to nd out what is needed in their community, because it happens everywhere even if you dont talk about it. Lunch will be provided at the event, and guests are welcome to wear purple in support of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. RSVP by Monday, Oct. 20 at 926-9005.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 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.Staff ReportFormer Wakulla Environmental Institute student John N. Taylor, who participated in the startup oyster aquaculture program begun by Tallahassee Community College, has led a formal letter of intent to sue the college and TCC Board of Trustees for negligence, fraud and breach of contract. The letter, led on Oct. 8 with the Department of Financial Services by the Tallahassee law rm of Flury & Atkins LLC on behalf of the 47-year-old Sopchoppy resident, states that Taylor has suffered damages in excess of $100,000 as a result of TCCs alleged failings. He will also be seeking punitive damages. A press release detailing intent to sue was emailed to The News last week, and the information was con rmed to be legitimate by Taylors law rm. It said, according to the contract, 10 students were to receive $7,500 worth of materials from the WEI in order to grow oysters in the Gulf waters at Panacea to boost the suffering oyster industry throughout the county. The contract called for students to repay the cost of materials from its rst oyster crop in January 2015. Taylor alleges that instructor Steve Cushman and WEI Executive Director Bob Ballard informed students they would have to repay as much as $18,000 beginning in January instead of the $7,500 required in the contract. The press release detailed other alleged mismanagement. The press release added that TCC and Cushman, who is a candidate for Wakulla County commission, had failed to deliver the promised number of oystergrowing baskets and oyster spat. Taylor also alleges Cushman has no formal education in aquaculture, and no experience in teaching aquaculture. They didnt uphold their end of the student contract, Taylor was quoted in the press release. And they didnt give students an instructor with aquaculture experience or education. This is the second time Taylors name has come up in association with Cushman. In July, Taylors sworn statement was included in a complaint packet submitted to the Florida Elections Commission that called Cushmans claims of military service into question. In that statement, Taylor said he is enrolled in the aquaculture program, and had heard Cushman say he was an Air Force pilot, biologist and Navy sniper. The complaint was dismissed as inadequate. TCC con rmed it had received the letter of intent concerning the threatened legal action. A statement from the college said they believe that this potential lawsuit action has no merit. TCC attorneys are reviewing the noti cation and the circumstances surrounding the letter. Under advice of TCC attorneys, Cushman said he was unable to comment on the matter.Notice of intent led with TCC over oyster program TAX IMPACT OF VALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARDNOTICE Expert physicians.Quality care. 2382 Crawfordville Hwy, Suite C, Crawfordville, FL 32308 | CapitalRegionalMedicalGroup.comRobert Frable, DOSpecializing in: Ofce Hours: Monday Friday, 8 a.m. 5 p.m.Capital Regional Medical Group accepts Capital Health Plan and most all other insurance carriers.850 9266363 Aida Torres, ARNP Flu and pneumonia vaccination

By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net At the Oct. 6 Board of County Commissioners meeting, concerns were voiced over the expansion and rezoning of Panacea RV Park. The Songbird Avenue sidewalk and the neighborhoods Halloween activities were discussed as well. A final plat application and request of zoning change for Seabreeze Subdivision Panacea RV Park was the subject of discussion between the owner Dallas Marshall and area homeowners. The application to combine the lots into one was accepted by the board with a 4-0 vote. (Commission Chairman Richard Harden was unable to attend the meeting.) The rezoning was accepted as well after a lot of back and forth. Linda Marshall, the wife of the applicant, said one big reason to combine the lots and enlarge the plat, is to give Wakulla Countians affordable housing. Theres an opinion that RV parks are waiting to turn into dumps, Marshall said. But not my RV park! Commissioner Jerry Moore recognized that the RV park used to be a real mess, but the Marshalls cleaned it up. Ken Rhodes, a homeowner nearby the RV park, expressed concern over the park having a negative impact on his property value. Rhodes read from district regulations about the difference between a trailer park and an RV park, which is more temporary in nature. Charles McMurry, an attorney who represents many homeowners in the area, said the zoning is for temporary RVs, Kind of like a KOA Campground, he said. Having a place for affordable living on a low income is obviously not permitted in this zone. That would be a trailer park of some sort. What they have now is a permit for 50 sites. He wants to expand it to 100. McMurry said there have been no studies on residential, noise, traf c or infrastructure impact. He also complained that there will not be enough buffer for the nearby homeowners when the park expands. Commissioner Ralph Thomas asked what quali es as a recreational vehicle. Planning and Zoning Director Luis Serna said the code does de ne RVs, and it does not include mobile homes. He said while the zoning is considered temporary, lengths of residency are not monitored. If someone decided to make something permanent like a porch, or put it on a foundation, thats not allowed because it would be permanent, Serna said. Homeowner Steve Nunnery said there have already been issues with RV park residents allowing their pets to mess in front of his house, and he was concerned about additional pets making the problem worse. He also requested a buffer, saying, Were not against the expansion, or what hes trying to do. Thomas said a lot of the details and concerns of the homeowner will be addressed in site planning, including George Waldmans request to keep drive-access to his backyard through the RV park property. Dallas Marshall said he is happy to accommodate the requests and concerns brought up at the meeting, and is open to input going into site planning. Commissioner Jerry Moore said you either have an RV park or mobile home park not both. Moore said he would support Marshall if the RVs dont have skirts or porches. But I wont support a trailer park in Panacea, he said. SONGBIRD NEWS Commissioner Randy Merritt brought forth several items to be discussed with the board. Residents of the Songbird neighborhood requested the county take over maintenance of the sidewalk, which was approved. Songbird Avenue will be closed to traf c from Wakulla-Arran to the subdivision on Halloween night, except to neighborhood residents and golf carts. A drivers license is required to operate golf carts. This is a huge deal, Merritt said. The people of Songbird are generous to host neighborhood children. In other news: Commissioners and audience members sported green ribbons for mental illness awareness. Janice Eakin, a director of NAMI Wakulla, the National Alliance for Mental Illness, talked about the services NAMI offers, discussed how mental illness affects the community, and showed an informational video. For more information visit www. namiwakulla.org. Eakin is also heading up Operation Santa, and talked about the application period, which ends Oct. 31. Signups are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the One Stop Community Center. She also encouraged commissioners, county staff and the public to adopt families this year. Visit www.operationsantawakulla.org. Sara Daw, representing the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth headquartered in the Wakulla One Stop Community Center, said in the nine months the center has been open, more than 355 local families have been assisted. A 250-foot section of Magnolia Street in Crawfordville was officially abandoned by the county, since it has a sinkhole in the middle. Applicants for the road closure will maintain the property, and post signs to forbid trash dumping.Turn to Page 13ASeabreeze RV Park in Panacea to be expanded and rezoned NOTICE OF REFERENDUM ELECTION TO BE HELD ON NOVEMBER 4, 2014OCTOBER 2, 16, 2014 LEGAL NOTICE ROAD CLOSINGNOTICE IS GIVEN that a public hearing was held by the Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners on Monday, October 6, 2014, beginning at 6:00 PM or as soon thereafter as time permitted in the County Commission Chambers located west of the Courthouse at 29 Arran Road, Crawfordville, Florida 32327 to consider a request to close that portion of platted but not constructed Magnolia Street lying south of Dans Drive and abutting Lots 42 through 46 of Block F of Magnolia Gardens Subdivision to the east and abutting Lots 5 through 9 of Block I of Magnolia Gardens Subdivision to the west.

Throughout his tenure as county commissioner, he has consistently told the county administrator that sewer, water, and road paving in Wakulla Gardens should have top priority. The county, unfortunately, didnt have the money, but that has now changed. The county has just received a USDA grant of $10 million and, because of Commissioner Moores generous donation of land for a pumping station on Highway 98, sewer and paving is on the schedule for Wakulla Gardens and nearby subdivisions. I never thought Id live to see the day when this would become a reality, but the money is there and plans are being drawn up so the next hurricane will not have the devastating effects on our neighborhood that Hurricane Dennis did.

When I decided to run for public office I knew there would be lies and twisting of facts. I regret having to take away from sharing my passion and plans for Wakulla to dispute lies. But, when someone spends $$$$ to buy almost a half page ad in this paper, I feel I take the time to share the facts with you. Larry Roberts has mastered the art of misleading the voters of Wakulla County. In his ad he makes four claims. 1. He claims it is a violation of Florida Law to misrepresent military service. First, strange as it seems, it is not a violation of Florida Law to misrepresent military service but I dont make the lawsyet. Search The Wakulla News website for Election complaint against candidate is rejected 2. He claims I was retired. Well folks, no one can retire after one year of service. The only thing I can gure out is that Larry pulled my status from my Facebook account that my wife set up back in 2009. At that time, Facebook offered active and retired. I was not active, so she picked retired. I am proud of the short time I served our country. 3. He claims I was an instructor pilot. In the complaint he led to the FEC, he also included information supplied to him from a convicted felon who added that I was a Navy Sniper and I have never been a Navy Sniper. In 2014, I was talking to Larry and he told me he ew an A-10 in Vietnam but the A-10 was not delivered into service until 1977 some three years after the US pulled out of Vietnam. Plus, the A-10 was an Air Force Plane. Larry was in the Marine Corp. Maybe he meant the A-4? 4. He claims I spent seven years in the service. The News wrote seven years and later corrected it. Is that my fault? Search The Wakulla News website for Correction, July 2,2014. Now let me point out a few other aws in his political ad. 1. He says I was in ROTC and states I was enlisted in the Air Force. You cant have it both ways. 2. His buddy Bill Anderson posted a video stating I did not go to college but Larry says I went to the University of North Texas and was in the ROTC. They need to get their lies in sync. 3. Larry references his 337 sorties and his comrades. Is he trying to insinuate people who do not see combat are not worthy of service recognition? I appreciate all of Larry Roberts service and I am sure he was a fine pilot. I cannot even begin to imagine the feeling of watching a fellow pilot go down knowing he will be in the worst of situations on the ground with no support. Let alone the loss of any of them. I think Larry has gotten into the politics and may have even been led there. But his continued rants are out of line and only politically driven. Is there a reason why Larry has never produced one single document to back up his claims? Is it just coincidental Bill Anderson hasnt either? Anderson has a video circulating about my wild irresponsible cave diving in Texas where he states, He was diving under a grant some divers had and they about lost their federal grant because of his misdiving, doing things he shouldnt do and the government came down on them. Please visit the following link to read about how I supposedly misdove and did things I should not do. Then make up your own mind about what happened with the facts from 2009. If you have any questions please feel free to call me directly to discuss at (850) 766-7731. Wakulla we need to stand by the desires of candidates like Bill Anderson who asks not to spread false information. A prime reason why I ask for your vote on Nov. 4. http://www. cavediver.net/forum/showthread. php/11771-Goodenough-Springs-Exploration-Project-Noticeof-Complaint. Steve Cushman President, Keep Wakulla Beautiful Code Enforcement Board Member Marine Advisory Committee Member Candidate for County Commission, District 4Editor, The News: Bill Anderson is running for county commissioner and I want to say a little about why I support him. He is an intelligent and quiet gentleman who loves Wakulla County. We could depend on Bill to be courteous and listen to the concerns of everyone in our county, and to have the citizens of all income brackets, home size, and individual circumstances represented well. There is no payoff or vested interest for him, he is the same as most of us. Keeping taxes and expenses low enough for the people who give our county the old Florida atmosphere, our shermen and working people, is his main concern. Wakulla County is special, a rare jewel on Floridas coast, and Bill Anderson appreciates everything about it and the people who live here. Jeannie Beck Oyster BayEditor, The News: In response to the letter by secretary of the Democratic Club Debra Sparks (Theft of political signs re ects badly, Letters, Oct. 9) on Graham signs being removed: 1. Graham has little or no support in our area. 2. Graham Democrats have put signs up without permission of property owners. 3. Graham Democratic campaign has been contacted by property owners with demand to remove signs. 4. Graham Democrats refusal to remove signs is belligerent and rude. Grahams Democrats have not shown the slightest amount of decorum and courtesy in asking permission to hang their signs yet they have the audacity to attack the integrity of Steve Southerland and his campaign members who volunteer to have an independent conservative representative in Congress. Southerland signs are in demand throughout the county. We cannot get enough of them. This country and our state has had enough of Obamas Hope & Change with illegals invading our countrys southern border, IRS targeting of Republicans for punishment, NSA snooping and recording private citizens phone calls and emails, Obama executive orders attacking traditional marriage, the indifference and obfuscation of the murder of our military men and ambassador in Benghazi. Citizens are sick of the destruction of our country. Rich Morro Panacea Editor, the News: Almost 20 years ago, forward thinking leaders in our community placed 75-foot buffers around Wakulla County wetlands, as part of the rst comprehensive growth plan for the county. They recognized that our wetlands are vital for long-term sustainability of the waters in the county and the industries that depend on that water. Recently four of our county commissioners voted to remove these protections. While these commissioners argue that no wetlands are being affected by this change, their claim is false. Buffers are what protect wetlands from the byproducts of our daily activities. The chemicals and pollutants that are produced when large numbers of people live close to wetlands must be contained. While we dont intentionally pollute, the run off during rains, and from our normal daily activities can carry many chemicals and materials that impair wetlands when there is no buffer to protect them. The oils that drip from our cars, the leaks of gas when we ll our lawnmowers, the septic tank that fails and is not replaced timely, these activities and others generate pollutants which join the storm waters and enter the wetland when development is allowed too close to the edge. A 75-foot buffer functions to protect the wetlands and the industries that are tied to healthy ecosystems. Dont be fooled by recent misinformation that imply there is a state 50 foot buffer, there is no state mandated buffer for single family development adjacent to wetlands. Currently four of our commissioners have said that wetlands protection should be left in the hands of the state. But if you examine what has happened under state protections, you will note that all but one spring in Florida (one which is protected by the federal government) has been dramatically impacted by pollutants. DEP has lived up to its nickname, Dont Expect Protection. Areas in South Florida, such as Indian River Lagoon, who have depended on state regulation for protection, have not been protected. The state has allowed pollution to cause the collapse of this once excellent shery. The lagoon has lost 60 percent of its sea grass in the last two years with the potential for further decline. The state has proven itself not quali ed to protect our waters. Those with special interest in development may say this removal of local protection will prevent the continued growth of our county. However, after 1995 while under the previous comprehensive plan with the 75-foot buffers, the county went through the largest expansion in its history. So a claim that this would slow growth is unfounded. These shortsighted commissioners have stated that this is a property right issue I strongly disagree! The 75-foot buffer is about all of our rights, not just those of a few special interests. Our right for the community to have clean water, our right not to have the ll from new development change hydrology so that current property owners become negatively affected. The right for our local shermen to be able to rely on healthy sh populations, and the right to have bays where healthy oysters can be harvested. To me this is a Tragedy of the Commons issue. All members of the community, us Commoners, will pay for the pro ts of a few developers through reduced water quality, fewer sh, oysters, birds, and other wildlife; reduced quality of community resources, thus a reduced quality of life which has historically been supported by the high quality waters of Wakulla County. I urge everyone in the county to vote YES on amendment A to protect YOUR rights as opposed to those of a very few with special interests; keep local control for the protection of our wetlands. Chuck Hess CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: I am writing to give my full support to Taylor Phillips for Commissioner in District 2. After getting to know Mr. Phillips, I have no doubt that he will bring an open mind to the commission and give equal weight to all opinions rather than favoring wealthy investors with financial ties to South Florida. I believe Mr. Phillips has the skills and more importantly, the DESIRE to get people to work together rather than to continue the adversarial tone in politics today that bene ts no one and perpetuates ill will. Mr. Phillips wants to have more open dialogue where people can talk and listen and solutions can be found. He will treat every citizen with respect. I trust Mr. Phillips to always look out for the citizens wellbeing and make decisions that bring the greater good for the greatest number. Some of the current commissioners are not shy when talking about their own pro ts from good investments. They fail to explain that it is you and I, through our taxes on both the state and county level, who will be putting some of that money directly into the personal pockets of those who are supposed to be working for all of us, not for themselves. Bring integrity back to the County Commission. Vote Taylor Phillips, District 2. Eugene D. Watkins Crawfordville
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 Page 5Areaders speak out More OpinionsEditor, The News:As you may know Wakulla County is a Charter county, one of 20 in the state and, by the way, the most recent and smallest. It could be said that this fact makes us one of the most forward thinking small counties in the state. For those who believe that home rule is important, that government that rules closest to the people is the best, then being a Charter County is our best option to achieve that goal. The Charter form of government allows counties to go beyond state statute to develop their code of ordinances. By having a Charter Government, Wakulla County is empowered to enact citizen driven ordinances. Our Charter calls for a Charter Review Commission to be formed no less than every eight years to review possible updates. The CRC spent several months this year conducting public meetings, holding public hearings, and reviewing the Wakulla County Charter. The following discussion will attempt to explain what you will be looking at on the ballot when you vote this November. Referendum B Non-partisan elections This item, when we began discussing it, was very popular with the CRC as well the Board of County Commissioners. In turn, the BOCC shepherded it through just in case we were unable to complete our work in time to get it on the ballot. The CRC did stay involved with the issue and were able to make a signi cant addition to the language, so call it a joint effort. Referendum B would make the BOCC and Constitutional Offices in Wakulla County NonPartisan elected positions, very similar to the concept utilized by our own School Board. If there are more than two candidates, these candidates will compete during the primary and should no candidate get 50 percent plus 1 vote, then the two leading candidates will advance to the General Election. If only two candidates qualify then those two candidates will automatically go to the General Election. The advantage here is that the nal decision will be made in the General Election where more people turn out to vote. By voting YES on Referendum B, you are voting to remove politics from our local offices while allowing for the election process to incorporate more ef ciency and voter input. Referendum C Residency Requirements Currently our county requires a commissioner live in the district he or she was elected in. This seems pretty straightforward, but without any guidelines for determining what residency is, the rule is unenforceable. Because of past perceived abuses of this rule citizens in certain districts in our county felt they have been without a commissioner to truly represent them. The CRC wanted much stricter guidelines, but because of other restricting state laws, only only two items were included: 1. After being elected, the county of cial shall sign a public notarized statement that he or she will reside full-time in the district, or county they are to represent. 2. Within 30 days after being elected the candidate shall produce their voters registration card which indicates their residence in that district or county depending on whether it is a county wide or district race. While not as tough as we wanted the measure to be, it will allow for complaints to come before the Code Enforcement Board for the appropriate action. If you think it helpful for your commissioner to live in your district so that they stay tuned-in to the needs of your district, then vote YES on referendum C Referendum DFund Balance Policy The CRC felt that the current group of commissioners has done a good job of beginning to correct our past budget mistakes that were brought on by a past administration and then we were further damaged by the recession. The CRC reviewed this policy and thought it to be a sound but fragile document. The CRC proposes that we enshrine that document in our Charter so that future generations of Commissioners will have the same set of guidelines to aid them in making the tough decisions on how to budget our tax dollars. A YES vote on referendum D is a vote for sound fiscal policy. Referendum EDebt Policy Much of our research on possible improvements to our Charter revolved around reading other Charters. We found strong institutional guidelines for the issuance, management, and acceptance of debt and noted that we had no such policy to guide our BOCC. If we decide at the polls, with a YES vote on referendum E, that this is good scal management then a debt policy to guide future commissions will be developed and adhered to by future commissions. Lets make Wakulla County better, vote Yes on all four! John Shuff CRC Member Where does it end with erosion of rights? e intent of CRC on amendmentsEditor, The News: In this day and age it makes me wonder when us Americans stop and think about all of the rights and privileges that are disappearing each and every day. Wakulla County is in the midst of having a Referendum about our Wetlands. The United States government is trying to implement The Clean Water Act of 1972 in October of this year, people are being spied on every time we use our computer or telephone, we are groped when you y on an airline and in many of the airports the government has the ability to see through our clothes. Where does the insanity stop? It seems as if Americans believe that we cannot make a decision on our own because we are not smart enough to make decisions for ourselves, we must have the almighty Government tell us what to do! This kind of philosophy is not what made this country the great country that we have been for the last 238 years. There has to be a reason that this country has excelled while other countries around the world have stayed stagnant or regressed in their statuses. The reason that The United States allowed us as Americans to take the chance of losing it all or making ourselves lthy rich. I do honestly believe if the Kennedys, the Rockefellers and the Waltons and the other in uential families in this country had all of the restrictions on them that are being placed us today, these great achievers of the American Dream would be like us, unknown and virtually in the same class as working class Americans today. Our Government is squeezing our chances of not being successful and into poverty with their actions. We have duplication of many of our Government Agencies and where has it gotten us? We have the U.S. Department of Education and every state has their Department of Education. Have both of these Departments of Education made the education of our children better or has it made the education of our children worse? Most people believe that the duplication of Departments of Educations has made education worse today and I must agree with them. When is the insanity going to stop? We currently have State Regulations about wetlands and Wakulla County has a Referendum for Wetlands on our ballot in November. If the Wetlands Referendum passes, will Wakulla County have to spend money to make sure that the Referendum rules are adhered to, I would think yes. How can a county that is barely getting by nancially afford the cost of another set of regulations to administer? It seems to me that different Government entities really do not work well together. There always seems to be a battle of who has supremacy over the other agencies in any of the issues. If our U.S. Government puts the Clean Water Act of 1972 into full force we also have another government agency that will be involved in the mix of our Wetlands issues. I am willing to bet that our three Governments, the county, the state and the federal government will cooperate about as much with each other like vinegar and oil mixes together. The Clean Water Act of 1972 will be the largest land grab in American history and I guarantee you that the Clean Water Act of 1972 will trump both the state and county. The Clean Water Act of 1972 gives our U.S. Government the right to claim any piece of land that has a creek, stream, pond, river, wet weather spring, ditch, ditch that most of the time is dry, wet spots in our yards, wet spots in our yards that are only lled with water a minuet number of days or possibly hours, ditches and possibly other kinds of wetlands that I cannot think of. If any of these issues are relevant the owner of this property has no right to oppose the U.S. Government from controlling their property. I myself have a few places in my yard that are only wet in the course of a year, a few hours at a time but they would be at the disposal of the government. I have no desire of having the U.S. government telling me what to do with my property and I would think that you also have no desire of the overreaching U.S. government on your property either! Even if the wetlands referendum fails and the Clean Water Act of 1972 passes we will have no rights to our own properties. Our problem in the United States is not that we are not regulated enough but that we are regulated too much! I know that there are people that say and believe that people like me do not like our government and try to do anything to oppose our government, but it is not true. People like me only want there to a sane and workable plan for us to live in this country. We understand that there must be some rules and regulations for us to live by but an overabundance of rules and regulations that duplicate and discriminate against us as citizens and property owners is not the answer.

Staff reportsChurch BriefsBy JAMES L. SNYDERThe week was going quite well until I ran into Ms. PC. I know a thing or two about language and words, but I still am abbergasted when it comes to the latest PC. I think somebody ought to do a weekly update on this aspect for us who are not up to date. I do not make any apologies, but I am from the generation that believes in being a gentleman. I know that does not fit well into todays society, but I am rather hesitant to change this aspect of my life. My father and even my grandfather instilled in me that I needed to be a gentleman at all times. Then I ran into Ms. PC. I am not quite sure where these people come from but I know where I would like to send them; as far from me as possible! I was about to enter a store and as I opened the door, I noticed a lady behind me. This is where my gentleman DNA kicks in. I opened the door, turned to the lady behind me, and said, After you, miss. As I said it, I smiled and nodded my head. That is, she said in a very angry voice, the most sexist thing I have seen all week. How dare you? Not only was I blindsided by these remarks, but I was dumbfounded. Excuse me, maam, I said as apologetically as possible. There you go again, she glared, with more of your sexist comments. Not knowing what she was talking about I just looked at her while holding the door for her. I suppose you think you are better than me, she queried. Where you get the idea that you are better than I because you are a man I will never know. I am just holding the door open for you, maam, I explained. There you are again thinking you are better than I am because I am a woman. Where have you been all your life? Dont you know that men and women are exactly the same? Now I was confused. I thought I would try to explain it to her. Mistake! Maam, I began, and then she interrupted me. Dont you dare call me maam again. I am nobodys maam! Now I did not know what to do. Should I walk into the store and shut the door behind me? Or should I just shut the door and walk away? At this point, no matter what I did would have been wrong. I am just trying to be a gentleman. Thats all. I dont mean any disrespect. That is the problem with people like you. You want me to believe that you are a gentleman and I dont believe it. This world does not need any gentlemen I will tell you that right here and now. To say I was a little irritated is to grossly understate the situation. Then I noticed something on the door. On the inside of the door was a lock so the door could be locked from the inside. I do not know what come over me, but I am not responsible for the irritation level I was at at the time. I turned away from the lady, walked into the store, pulled the door shut behind me, ipped the lock and walked away. Out of the corner of my eye I could see that this woman had stepped up to the door and was rapping on the door, all the time her mouth was going a mile a minute. Thankfully, I could not hear a word she was saying. Since she does not need a gentleman, she did not need me. For a brief moment, I felt a little guilty about my shenanigans. I have never done anything that outrageous before in my life. Sometimes a gentleman needs to show a lady that being a gentleman is a good thing. I will continue to be a gentleman and I hope this little incident is a rare exception. Today people make it rather hard for other people to exercise politeness. In our politically correct society nobody knows what is good or what is bad. The aforementioned lady, and I know she would not want me to call her a lady, and for all practical purposes she was not, has no idea the difference between a man and a woman. Evidently, she has never been married. If men and women are exactly the same without any difference, why then, are there men and women? Those who do not believe that there is any difference have been sold a bill of goods by some slick shyster who is making them look foolish. The Bible says, Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). My standard of behavior is not set by the people around me, but by the Word of God that is within me..The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

I had to force myself to say those words, and it was even harder to be sincere with my intentions. However, I went back to my ofce knowing I had taken a small step toward obeying God. I had been asking God to help me consider others needs (including their goals) as more important than my own. I was extremely performance based during that season of my life in Louisiana, especially at work. In fact, I could barely function when my name didnt appear rst on the sales board. My attitude was destructive to my soul, and to those around me. Many years later, when I returned to radio sales, I rmly resolved to do it differently. With Gods help, I believed I could still be a great salesperson (maybe even the best), but do it with a more Christ-like attitude. Do nothing from sel shness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 NASB) I dont know about you, but this is one of those scriptures that zings me. But I am determined (with Gods help) to rise to its challenge. What about you? What if we would repent of our sel sh ways more often, especially when we put our needs ahead of others? What if we ask God to help us (at least one time each day), make a conscious effort to put someone elses need ahead of own? What if I treated my husband, Bert, with Philippians 2:3 in mind? How would that change my marriage? How would applying Philippians 2:3 in your everyday life change you and your relationships? Sheryl H.

Sondra Brown began her study of Sanborn when she became the wife of Delano Brown whose extended family members remain in the area. The Sanborn community, located along Highway 375 and the Ochlockonee River between Sopchoppy and Smith Creek and to the south of Vause Branch Cemetery, was named for Ira Woodson Sanborn who owned a huge plantation across the river in Liberty County now called Sanborn Field and known as a campsite. Mr. Sanborn had sawmills and a steamboat. He transported lumber and turpentine to Carrabelle and returned with groceries and supplies for the small stores and commissaries where logging workers were given chips to use in trade. This was a common practice among the sawmill owners. Because of vast pine forests in the area, there was plenty of work for men in logging, cutting cross ties and in turpentine. Following the Civil War, many families from Georgia, Alabama and the Carolinas came to rebuild their lives and pro t from forests, shing and farming. Some familiar names among the settlers in this area were Brown, Reeves, Sanders, Syfrett, Tucker and Wilder. Maurice Langston shared his familys story of living in Smith Creek. He is the son of Ted and Alma Langston, beekeepers who were well known for the famous and favored product of the area Ty-Ty Honey. Maurice spoke of his childhood in Smith Creek as being a bit more primitive than todays world but the relationships in the small and isolated community served to make its people strong, family-oriented, and God-fearing. As a child, he rode the bus to school in Sopchoppy. In telling of his life in Smith Creek, Maurice brought in the names and lives of many of the oldtimers of the community and told of the spirit of hard work, family, church (Mount Elon), and Gods blessings that existed when (he) was a child and still prevail today. Maurice also presented to the Historical Society three framed handwritten documents dated 1895. Two documents represent a claim for $41.40 in general merchandise made by F. W. Duval & Bro. D.C. The paper was led of record in Wakulla County on December 2, 1895. Judge W.W. Giles issued a summons to settle the claim. President Cathy Frank accepted the artifacts to be archived at the Museum.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolBy HUGH TAYLORSpecial to The NewsMajor Larry Roberts (Ret.) of Sopchoppy was inducted into the Leon High School Hall of Fame Banquet on Sept. 25 at the Tallahassee Civic Center. Major Roberts played both offensive and defensive guard on the 1957 Leon High football team, playing almost every down and leading the team in defensive tackles that year, where he earned All Big Bend First Team. Roberts said he was very pleased and surprised to receive the award. I enjoyed my years at Leon and going to the awards banquet, he said. In many ways it was like coming home. Football taught me a lot. Teamwork and determination and persistence, things I carried into my career as a Marine. After Leon High Major Roberts entered the Marine Corps and was selected for the Marine Aviation Cadet Program and was designated a Naval Aviator in 1963. After 337 combat missions and a Purple Heart, Two Distinguished Flying Crosses and 21 Air Metals for Meritorious Achievement, Major Roberts became a Flight Instructor at NAS in Pensacola, under the command of Col. Donald Conroy, the Great Santini. As a ight instructor, he never lost a student in preparing them for aircraft landings. Landing on an aircraft carrier is one of the most hazardous procedures, its not complicated, just unforgiving. Major Roberts was introduced and given the award by Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, who recalled football at Leon with Major Roberts: He wasnt big, but he was tough. Real tough. Larry has two sons, Wes and Clay whose families live in Tallahassee. Larry now resides near the place of his birth in Wakulla County.The Wakulla High School NJROTC Program held its 22nd Annual Fish Fry on Oct. 3.

The partnership between Wakulla High and FITC began this September and is led by Ms. Nancy Floyd Richardson. This Alliance will expand educational opportunities for students, both inside and outside the classroom, as well as provide resources to schools to continue their STEM efforts. The Florida IT Career Alliance welcomes Wakulla High. I commend the schools vision and leadership in introducing their students to the creative and innovative careers in computer science, IT and engineering, said Dr. Larry Dennis, FITC Project Lead. This partnership will allow Wakulla High networking opportunities with Florida State University, Florida A&M University, Tallahassee Community College, Florida State College at Jacksonville and other colleges in the Panhandle. Partnerships between the Alliance and local high schools offer schools numerous opportunities for students, including specialized career fairs, visits to local colleges and universities, student workshops and course curriculum enhancements.Special to The NewsOn Friday, Oct. 10, Shadevilles kindergarten, first, and second grade students enjoyed the annual visit for Fire Prevention Week from the Crawfordville and Medart Volunteer Fire Fighters, Wakulla Fire and Rescue, and the Wakulla County Ambulance Departments Paramedics. This years theme was: Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives Test Yours Every Month. The students also learned the importance of staying low to avoid smoke inhalation, how to stop-drop and roll if your clothes catch re, never going back into a burning building, making sure there are good batteries in the smoke detector, and to never, ever play with matches. One of the most important things the children learned was how a re ghter who may be coming to save your life will look and sound in his bunker gear. Some very brave students had the opportunity to use the re hoses to spray out the re and create a beautiful rainbow too! Other highlights of the morning were the visit from Sparky and the tours of the retrucks and their equipment, as well as seeing inside the ambulances. Fire Prevention is so important to the safety and well-being of our children and their families, we would like to thank the re ghters and paramedics who took time out of their busy schedules to share their expertise said Principal Susan Brazier.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comThe cooler weather predicted for this weekend should really help our shing. Water temperatures went from the low 70s to the high 70s over the week due to our summer like weather but hopefully fall is right around the corner and the water temperatures will drop. Im sure many folks had plans for fishing Monday but Mother Nature probably changed those plans. Ive talked to quite a few people who have been offshore lately and seen huge red sh, hog snapper, pink mouth grunts and other fish floating on the top. Currently there is a red tide in the offshore waters of Bay, Franklin, Wakulla, Taylor, Dixie and Levy County. Fortunately it has not affected the inshore waters and hopefully wont. Actually scientists call a red tide a harmful algal bloom or HAB and these occur nearly every summer along Floridas Gulf Coast. All algal blooms are not harmful but are beneficial because the tiny plants are food for animals in the ocean. A small percentage of algae produces powerful toxins that can kill sh, shell sh, mammals and birds. When masses of algae die and decompose, the decaying process can deplete oxygen in the water causing the water to become so low in oxygen that sh either leave the area or die. Red tides or HABs are a national concern because they not only affect the health of people and marine ecosystems, but also the health of local and regional economies. Don Gary was offshore Sunday and said he didnt see any dead sh but he did see a sailsh jump completely out of the water not far from Buoy 24. Gary Morris from Atlanta was out last Friday trolling out of St. Marks for grouper and said they got into a large school of reds. They also caught some small cobia. Bucky, over at Shell Island Fish Camp said before the full moon people were doing pretty good with trout in close between Pattys Island and the St. Marks River. Over the week their boats caught plenty of sh but most were reds. JR said shing around the Aucilla was slow during the full moon but expects things to get much better. He said he is already catching some sh up the river. Capt. Luke Frasier said they shed on the Shell Point reef last week on an incoming tide and caught lots of trout but only had 5 keepers out the ones they caught. He said he shed the white trout hole at the mouth of the Panacea channel and didnt get a bite. Morris Brown said they also tried there and did nothing. Well the reds have finally returned to the Shell Point area and are around in good numbers. I believe from the end of March until two weeks ago I may have caught 10 legal reds. Last week I limited out on reds on every charter and probably released 25 slot sh. Trout shing for me was good before the full moon but after the full moon it got tough. We caught very few trout whether legal or short but did catch four over 24 inches which they released. On Saturday it did seem like trout were biting a little better. Capt. David Fife has been on the water for the last week and has been catching a lot of reds. He said hes been catching lots of puppy reds but a large number of bigger reds up to 32 inches. He has been using mud minnows primarily. Dont forget The Red trout Shootout is coming up on Saturday the 25th. I believe I said the 24th in my last article but that was wrong.

Wild ower FoundationAlong the edges of damp roadsides, marshes, swamps, and bogs you may spot a bright red/orange ower on a tall slender stalk, like a ag catching your attention. This beautiful ower (Asclepias lanceolata) is in the milkweed group of wildowers, a group which has a very interesting ower structure when you get close enough to see its details. The petals of the ower all curve downward. The part of the ower that has the stamens and pistil in it stands upright and is called the crown. The way the pistil is formed it can only receive pollen from another milkweed plant of the same species, ensuring that the seeds always produce the same kind of owers and do not hybridize. The Few ower milkweed ower stalk can be up to 5 feet tall. Along the middle of that stem are long thin lanceshaped opposite leaves, which give the flower its botanical name, lanceolata. After the flower blooms and is pollinated, it will form a large tubular seed pod; when the seeds are ripe the seed pod will split open so that the seeds which have cottony parts can be blown by the wind to another location.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 Page 11A The following report was submitted by Duane Treadon. With us hosting the Division meeting on the first Saturday of October we moved our Flotilla meeting to this past Saturday. This was a great meeting with a lot of information passed on, items discussed, and awards presented to member for outstanding performance. We even had the honor of administering the Oath of Membership to our newest member. One of the biggest discussions was on the upcoming QE mission planned for November 1st. QE stands for Qualifications Examiner. This is a highly trained member of the Auxiliary who has the responsibility of qualifying new boat crew members. Once qualified, crew members must re-qualify every three years. We currently have several members in need of their 3 year currency maintenance check ride. Some of which needed it last year but missed out when the mission was scrubbed due to the government shut down. During a QE mission the member must demonstrate proficiency in a variety of required crew tasks. Some of these tasks include knots, rst aid, boat handling, weather, navigation rules, emergency operations, providing aid to boaters in distress, radio communication, and towing just to name a few. The member going through the QE demonstrates proficiency through oral exercise as well as physically performing some tasks. We also heard from some members who were fortunate enough to attend NACON which was held in Orlando this year. NACON is the national conference for the Auxiliary. Here members from across the nation and even several foreign nations with strong Coast Guard Auxiliary programs in their own country attended. Though geared more for upper leadership and staff at the national level members of every level of the organization are welcomed and learn a lot. Our Flotilla had 4 members attend. Most memorable to them, they reported, was hearing the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard talk. He talked of the Auxiliary as being a full and critical member of the entire Coast Guard family and pledge his support to work as hard for the Auxiliary as he does for active duty, reserves, and civilian employees of the Coast Guard. The Auxiliary is truly a force multiplayer that allows the Coast Guard do more with less and often outshine the other branches of the Armed Forces in what they accomplish. It is often said that as a volunteer organization our only pay is the recognition through awards received by our members. This month several members received their pay check as we like to say. Member Raye Crews received her 5 years of service award and ribbon. Also receiving service awards but not present were Tiffanie Bourassa 5 years, Ronald Pagel 10 years, Bill Wannall 10 years, Rich Rasmussen 15 years, and Steve Hults 20 years. Member Ron Eudy, who was present, received recognition for the completion of 4 specialty courses Weather, Seamanship, Communications, and Patrol. It often takes members several years to complete that many specialty courses, Ron did it in less than a year making this an extra impressive feat. Finally though not an award but a change in status member Bob Lange received his formal letter and certi cate of membership in the Auxiliary. With this he was authorized to take the Oath of Membership. With all members standing for this signi cant event Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon administered the oath and at the conclusion presented the newest member of the Auxiliary to the Flotilla. Welcome Aboard Bob. Flotilla 12 will be at the Stone Crab Festival on Oct. 25. Stop by and see us. We are also holding the Auxiliary one day About Boating Safely class in Thomasville, Ga. that day. If you boat in Georgia you may want to be familiar with a new boaters education law that took effect July 1st of this year. Much like Floridas boaters education law it requires people born on or after a certain date to have in possession proof of completing an approved safe boating class when operating a boat. For Georgia this date is January 1, 1998. Florida residents boating in Georgia born on or after this date will need proof of completing an approved class. This will be our first public course offering in Georgia and with the new law we anticipate having more. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux.net then contact our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Human Resources, Raye Crews, at Rayec@ uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at Duanet@ uscgaux.net. If youre interested in a free vessel examination, send an email to our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Vessel Examinations, Steve Hults, at Steveh@uscgaux.net. As Sherrie says, Safe Boating is no Accident! a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiences UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg Stanton Coast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD Time Underwater I hear about this topic with every class I teach, and I just nished another Rebreather class last week. The common statement is where did the time go?. Coupled with such an observation comes the challenge I face to t a long list of skills into 800-1000 minutes that most of my rebreather classes demand to reach an acceptable pro ciency. Its all about an ef cient use of time underwater. My rebreather class begin with two 12 hour days of lectures and shop/pool practicals to just introduce the basic concepts to an already quali ed scuba diver. We know that only 25% of what we lecture will stiay with the student, perhaps 50% if they study their books at night. So we repeat critical concepts often and include these points on a nal exam. What I have found however, due to the context of the dry classroom and shop having little in common with the underwater environment, very little information carries over when we go underwater. My students tell me time drags while in class. Day 3 through 8 are spent driving (and lecturing) 1000 miles out of the county to spend a minimum of 120 minutes underwater training critical skills each day. By the end of the class the underwater time is up to 240 minutes. Why so much time in training underwater? I must re-train the concepts because the student does not remember what we said in class. They hardly remember what we say just before getting in the water! And conversely, they hardly remember what was done when they were in the water, after they get out. The problem is known as contextual learning and is responsible for the many times you get up to get something in another room and once there forget what you were looking for. Time. I have therefore devised many educational tools to permit my students the opportunity to discover learn (even though we have discussed it before), skills and knowledge while underwater. And soon after we exit I spend time reviewing the skill so that we can keep it on the mind once dry. These techniques are repeated often day after day building from simple skills to complex as I proudly watch the student mature underwater. Example? Sure. Rebreathers are wonderful machines, but like every machine, they fail. When your car shuts down on the freeway, you coast to the side and call for help. When a rebreather shuts down, you bail out and return to the surface, or move your life support to another system you carry at all times, but seldom use, called open circuit gas. Day one of the training, I ask the student to remove his small bail-out cylinder and put it back on underwater. I ask them to switch from the rebreather to the bail-out cylinder while at the surface. By day 2, I ask them to bail-out at depth using their built in rebreather regulator (called a BOV). By the third day they are bailing out to the cylinder independent of the rebreather. And the rest of the class they expand to swapping the cylinder with their buddy, conduct diagnostics of the failed rebreather, and locating alternative ways to get valuable oxygen while at depth. My students are busy when underwater. Students routinely ask for more time underwater every day until exhaustion sets in by day 6 or 7. People learn more slowly when exhausted. But lessons set to muscle memory become apparent when exhausted, which is why we teach using such saturation techniques. There is never enough time!

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com & By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsTattoo artist David King opened Apocalyptic Tattoo in Panacea about five years ago when he and his wife, Jessica, decided to relocate to Wakulla County. We love the area, he says about their move south. This is a wonderful place to call home. A transplant from a small town in Wisconsin, King worked as a welder before turning his eye, and talent, to the artistry of tattoos full time. He moved around a lot, living in Denver, North and South Dakota, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska. Ive lived and worked in a lot of places, but in my spare time I was always drawing, he says. I have always been artistic, even in high school, says King. He began creating reproduction art on cars and motorcycles, and then began creating original artwork for customers. Then, he says he was lucky to land an apprenticeship with a reputable and well-known ink artist named Zono who offered him an apprenticeship. Ive done my share of grunt work, says King. It takes a lot of hard work, time, and sacri ce to get into this industry properly. Through the years King says he has accumulated the equipment, and knowledge, to run a quality tattoo shop. He takes pride in his work, and he says he takes the time with his clients that is needed to create a lasting image. Part of being a responsible artist is to guide the client in the right direction, he says. About 75 percent of my work is coverups. Everybodys skin is different, King explains. Its important to take the time, to do it right. He explains that getting a tattoo is a very personal experience, and that the time it takes to do the work, he ends up having some very personal connections with his clients. I had an 80-yearold man come in to get a tattoo, King says. It was on his bucket list. Now he has a three-quarter sleeve on his arm, and half of a leg piece, and we have plans to do more. Weve spent a lot of time together and weve become good friends, he said. King creates original artwork for his clients, but he is happy to work with his clients designs, and will reproduce just about anything people bring him. He says that he works closely with his clients to counsel them on their decisions, because its something that they will live with for the rest of their lives. Its not something you want to rush, he says. You can only be so quick. But, most people want their tattoo right then. When you get a tattoo, your body releases endorphins. It can be addictive, so he coined the phrase Follow me to your next addiction. King stays busy in his little shop. He says that his primary way of letting people know about his work is through word of mouth. A couple from Louisiana heard about my work online, and they came all the way here to have me do their tattoos, he says. They made a vacation out of it. King and his wife also own the little bar next door, Blue Lagoon Saloon, and put in long hours at both businesses. He says that owning a small business, or two, in a small town is not easy. But he says that he considers his art ink therapy and explains that he is very satis ed with his ability to be creative and to serve his clients. Tattoos are time frames in life, expressing happiness, joy, pain and remembrances, he says. And I get to help my clients with these expressions. Apocalyptic TattooDavid King inks his art on skin Artists of WakullaArtists of Wakulla is a monthly feature that highlights an individual artist living and working in Wakulla County. If you are an artist, or know an artist, who is interested in being featured, please contact Jenny Odom at firstname.lastname@example.org.This is a story about how I almost lost my life at a very early age. It was not by some exotic, horrible disease, but by the hand of one of my very best friends, Van Page. Van is from the pioneer Page family which migrated down to Florida from North Carolina in the middle 1800s and settled in Wakulla and Leon counties, and we have been friends since rst grade in 1948. Obviously I survived, and Ill tell you how it happened. The whole thing had to do with the Sands of Iwo Jima. The year was 1950, and what a wonderful life we had as children back in my early childhood. Movies were cheap and were made by men and women of character, so that anyone could go see any of them. And we could just go off alone or with a friend or two and there was never any danger to us. The city bus stopped right in front of my home on the corner of Pensacola and Woodward streets in Tallahassee, and the fare up town was 10 cents. There were three movie theaters in Tallahassee the State, the Florida, and the Ritz. But I need to get back on track and tell you how I was almost killed by my friend, Van. That fateful day, Van and I decided to skip the 10 cent bus fare and walk up town the mile or two to the State Theater where Sands of Iwo Jima, starring John Wayne, was playing. We could use that extra 10 cents for a candy bar, bag of popcorn, or maybe a soft drink. And what a treat that movie was! So good I think we watched it twice. It was full of lots of shooting, hand grenades, and st ghts. It was all about how our American Marines fought so hard on Iwo Jima, and they were all heroes, especially their leader, John Wayne. It was getting a little bit late when we left the theater, but still plenty of time to get home before dark. We decided to walk down Park Street so we could slide down the re escape at Lively Technical School which was on that street. It was always fun to play on that slide. You could pull yourself all the way to the top, sit down on it, and slide all the way to the bottom. We did that over and over until we got tired. Van and I were all red up after seeing the Sands of Iwo Jima, and there was no way we could just walk home without pretending we were John Wayne and the Marines in the movie. We just had to play out some of the scenes, so we split up and started throwing rocks at each other, pretending they were hand grenades. That was not unusual, we threw rocks at each other lots of times and never had any problem. The rocks were usually fairly small and most of the time they were easy to dodge because we stood kind of far apart. Even if one hit you, it didnt hurt all that bad. Now and then thered be a minor blow to the head that may cause some slight bleeding, but we didnt care about that. The problem with throwing rocks near Lively Technical School was that the landscape was mostly just grass and it wasnt easy to nd rocks suitable for throwing at each other. Still in the vicinity of Lively Tech, Van picked up a rock and threw it at me. Mimicking how John Wayne and the other Marines did it in the movie when a hand grenade was thrown at them, as soon as Van threw the rock, I turned and ran a few feet and then jumped on the ground, landing on my stomach with my head turned to one side. The Marines did that so that when the grenade exploded, the shrapnel would pass over them. The trouble was, I did not pay any attention to the trajectory of Vans rock as it arched toward me. As it turned out, it was right on target. I also didnt notice his rock was not a rock at all but was either a half or fourth of a brick, I dont recall which. Down it came and struck me in the side of the head just behind my right ear. Everything went black for a second or two as I felt the heavy blow to my head, then I felt a warm liquid (blood) owing down the side of my face and neck. I must have presented a terrible sight as I tried to get up. I thought I heard Van shout that it wasnt very bad but he was going to get help. He ran off as fast as he could go. I was very dizzy, but was able to walk so started for home. The bleeding was pretty bad, and after I had walked about two blocks and was near the old city cemetery, a man and his family were driving by and saw me. The man got out and put a handkerchief to my head to stem the bleeding and drove me home. Next it was to the hospital where I had a few stiches put in and the doctor told me how lucky I was to be alive. At this point I should clarify that mother and I did not take the doctors comment seriously, but more to admonish me that throwing rocks at each other was not a good idea since serious injury could result. My injury looked pretty bad because of the bleeding, but in truth was not serious and was patched up with just a few stitches. My mother told me Mrs. Page had called and told her Van came bursting in the door, crying, and telling his mother, I might have killed John! It seems he and a red headed friend, Danny Cooksey, had come back looking for me, couldnt nd me, and just gured I had wandered off somewhere in the bushes and died. Van later called my mother and told her hed pay my hospital bill. Every now and then they show that classic old war movie, Sands of Iwo Jima, on television and it always reminds me of the time Van Page almost killed me. And Im still waiting for him to pay that hospital bill!

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comCreeping is a word with many negative implications. It implies sneaky behavior with malevolent intent. The definition of creeping has been updated to the equivalent of internet stalking. It means to pursue or follow someone in a persistent, stealthy manner. In doing so, the goal is to advance gradually and unnoticed, then infringe on some aspects of the targets existence. In contemporary Wakulla County the botanical population, both native and exotic, is under threat daily from a creeping plant. Creeping indigo (Indigofera spicata) is a weed with many comparable traits of a malicious stalker whose sole purpose is to conquer territory and supplant the current inhabitants. This commonly overlooked exotic invader does not get the attention of the long list of infamous invasive plants such as kudzu, cogon grass, and climbing fern. A native of Africa, this plant is a legume. Most legumes are viewed favorably by the agricultural community since they possess nitrogen-fixing bacteria in their root nodules. Creeping indigo was introduced from Ceylon to Gainesville, Fla. around 1925 as part of a research project to investigate several properties including nitrogen xation and its potential as a forage crop for the livestock industry. While this species was considered to have a good nitrogen xing capacity, there were other features which were not appreciated. Livestock toxicity issues began to be a concern of researchers as early as 1933. Historically, most of the Indigofera species were used for production of indigo dye which resulted in deep blue shades in a variety of textiles. Over time this stable dye became a valuable commodity and was hauled by way of pack animals to distant locations for barter in ancient markets and bazaars. Creeping indigo does not contain as much dye as other species and was ignored as a valueless weed until the early 20th Century. Legumes such as clovers and peanut hay make excellent forage, but there is a constant search for the next improved option. When early test as potential forage were conducted on rabbits, one did not survive the initial grazing trial. The surviving rabbit recovered after creeping indigo was removed from the diet. Besides rabbits, equine, cattle, sheep, goats, guinea pigs, and birds have also been poisoned by this exotic plant. Swine, demonstrating exceptionally good sense, will not eat this plant and have avoided it in feeding tests. Identification of creeping indigo in the autumn is aided by the very distinctive seed pod clusters. Seed pods are straight and approximately an inch long in densely packed groups of about one hundred pods per stalk. These downwardpointing clusters are bright green when immature, but dry to a matte black. The pods easily shatter when bumped or struck by an animal and will scatter the tiny seeds within. During the growing season, creeping indigo is a lowing growing plant which lies over in a prostrate fashion potentially reaching six feet in length. Leaves contain seven to nine hairy lea ets and stems are hairy too. Flowers appear at the base of the leaves, and contain numerous pink blooms during the summer. Soon after the pretty flowers disappear, this creeping beauty becomes everyone nightmare.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIt was one of those games that was supposed to show the character of the Wakulla War Eagles after their loss to Godby and it did. The War Eagles who played Friday night for homecoming against the Bradford County Tornadoes looked like the team fans have seen in six other games an explosive offense scoring more than 40 points, and a lockdown, hard-hitting defense. With the 48-0 whipping of Bradford, Wakulla improved to 5-2 for the season. Weve only played one bad game, said Head Coach Scott Klees. Weve lost two, but Navarree was a hard fight and a great game. The one bad game came against Godby, in which the district rival Cougars played well, and the War Eagles were hampered by mistakes and turnovers. I was interested to see who would step up, Klees said. They responded very well. Klees said this years team is young, with only three senior starters, and that You never know where the leadership is going to come from. Talking with Klees, he usually expresses some reservation about his teams offensive play. I do see where we could be a bit more explosive, he said, even as he acknowledges that hes a perfectionist. We scored 21 points against Godby and played bad, he said. We have a very talented offense. Klees noted that his offense and defense did some different things against Bradford, including moving star receiver Keith Gavin around putting him in the slot some, letting him carry some and starting him on defense as a safety, a position he has played some. Were doing different things with Keith, moving him around, and changing things on defense, Klees said. With a bye week coming up, Klees said the team is focused on staying healthy. And he said that even after Cody Ochat broke his arm at practice. We want to heal up, but we cant sacrice practice, he said. Klees said the team also has two or three players out waiting to be cleared to play on the new concussion protocols. We have two or three guys well get back next week, he said. After the bye week, the War Eagles face North Florida Christian in Tallahassee on Oct. 24. GAME RECAP In the first quarter, a 40-yard run by Monterious Loggins set up an 11 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Feleipe Franks to Keith Gavin. Wakulla 7-0. Antonio Morris scored on a 13-yard run to put Wakulla up 14-0. Still in the first quarter, Loggins scored on a 2-yard run for touchdown, 21-0 with seconds remaining in the rst. Before the half, speedster Justin Davis took it to the house after catching a quick slant pass over the middle and outran the defense to the goal line, Wakulla 28-0. In the second half, a broken play in the red zone as Franks scrambled to his left, looked back to his right and found Gavin for a touchdown pass, 35-0. Antonio Morris scored another TD on a run, the extra point by backup kicker was no good, 41-0. Chris Beverly scored on a run and the extra point was good to make it 48-0.

Your ad could be here! Call 926-7102 By MARTY COHEN From our perch in the press box high above Florida Field, we watched another team celebrate on the oor of The Swamp as Florida players trudged off the eld as silence engulfed what for the most part was a pretty rocking arena. The scene played out at the conclusion of Floridas contest with LSU, a disheartening setback decided in the closing seconds on a 50-yard eld goal by Tiger kicker Colby Delahoussay. A number of plays were perhaps more signi cant than the winning kick, as the Gators found a host of ways to fritter away what would have been a critical victory. In the aftermath of the setback, there wasnt much reason to sugarcoat. Floridas season hangs in the balance, as does the future of head coach Will Muschamp, in a critical second half of the season. It might be hard to believe that weve already peeled the pages back on half the regular season, but such is the nature of our little shbowl. When times get hard, theres one individual whose wisdom it pays to adhere, and thats my muse Bugs Bunny, whod utter, Another day, another carrot, in an effort to persevere through trying times (if cartoon characters experience such emotions). Anyway, in a gurative sense Muschamp is clinging to that last carrot, the nal element he can offer as valid reason for keeping Atlanta within his players sights. Muschamp told his players that heading into the second half of the season, beginning with Homecoming contest with Missouri, the Gators (3-2 overall, 2-2 in the SEC) still had a great chance to capture the SEC East and make it to Atlanta for the SEC Championship Game. Despite two league setbacks, both were to teams from the West (Alabama and LSU), meaning if Florida took care of business and swept its nal four conference games against Eastern Division foes, the opportunity to get to the Georgia Dome for the first time since 2009 would be within grasp. Muschamp erroneously told the players that the Gators still controlled their own destiny in the East race, which basically is not true. Kentucky and Georgia are the ones in charge of their fate, since winning out the rest of the way in the league would assure either team of the division crown. Same cant be said for Florida, which could nd the resolve to win its nal four league games, yet would still need Kentucky to lose one time (hence the error in reporting the whole control your fate deal if you still need someone to fall, then by de nition, you dont have complete control). So the question becomes where does Florida reside right now? In a weak division from top to bottom, the Gators reside smack in the middle, rmly in the running for the East title but just as easily staring at the abyss of a program that has won just seven times in the last 18 games. Both Muschamp and the three players who came for postgame interviews mercurial return specialist Andre Debose, defensive end Alex McCalister and quarterback Jeff Driskel all reiterated the same premise: simply put, the Gators had their opportunities but didnt make the necessary plays to secure victory.FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gators By BOB FERRANTE Florida State wasnt exactly dominant but the Seminoles yet again scored points at will and also displayed a strong redzone defense. Jameis Winston completed 30 of 36 passes for 317 yards and three touchdowns, Rashad Greene became the schools all-time leader in receptions and the defense recorded three interceptions as FSU cruised past Syracuse 38-20 on Saturday afternoon. An offense that was without tailback Karlos Williams and center Austin Barron didnt skip a beat. True freshman Dalvin Cook ran for 122 yards, and sophomore Mario Pender and Cook each had touchdown runs. FSU bent on defense in the rst half but was at its best in the red zone. Syracuse managed just two eld goals in four drives that went inside the 20, with Jalen Ramsey coming up with an interception and FSU stopping the Orange on downs in the minutes before halftime. One of the big stories I thought came out of today was our defense, Fisher said. Even though they moved the ball, we played tremendous red zone defense, we created turnovers, held them to a eld goal, we even got some four-down stops, which I thought was critical to our success. No. 1 FSU (6-0, 4-0 ACC) won its 22nd straight game and is already bowl-eligible as the season reaches the midpoint. While the Seminoles goal is to win the ACC and earn a spot in the college football playoff, FSU is again guaranteed of going to a bowl game and extending a streak that began with an appearance in the 1982 Gator Bowl. The Seminoles now prepare for a Top-5 showdown with Notre Dame next Saturday at 8 p.m. The Fighting Irish are unbeaten heading in to their game at home against North Carolina this afternoon. We just need to continue to build, continue to grow and were looking forward to next week, Fisher said. Greene had six catches for 107 yards, moving him past Ron Sellers (212 catches) for the top spot on FSUs all-time receptions list. With at least seven games remaining in his career, Greene has 215 catches. Nick OLeary had eight catches for 97 yards, giving him 90 career receptions as he moved past Gary Parris for the all-time lead in catches by an FSU tight end. OLeary also owns the school record for receiving yards and touchdowns by a tight end. While FSU still hasnt had a dominant, complete game, there were plenty of positives. The offense scored on ve of its rst seven drives, and the running game was ef cient. FSUs defense allowed Syracuse to drive but didnt give up a touchdown until the middle of the third quarter. And the Seminoles got interceptions by Ramsey, Nate Andrews and Tyler Hunter.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Oct. 10 As the heated, snarky and increasingly testy campaign between Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist nears the yearlong mark has it only been that long? the two nally met in a debate at a television studio in Miramar. There wasnt much new in the clash, which largely consisted of the two men personally exchanging insults that theyve been trading in emails and press conferences for months. There was Scott, painting the picture of Crist as a ipopping political opportunist who helped bury Floridas economy. And there was Crist, portraying Scott as a corrupt businessman and ally of special interests who lacks Crists trademark empathy. But for all the predictability of the debate, it still served as a notice that the race for the Governors Mansion is entering the stretch run. In a little more than three weeks, and after two more debates that promise to be just as nasty as the rst, voters will cast ballots and decide which of the two most-recent governors will take the oath in January 2015. Attorney General Pam Bondi and her two opponents held a more subdued debate as they battle to see who will be the states top lawyer. After he was done debating with Bondi and Libertarian candidate Bill Wohlsifer, Democratic candidate George Sheldon turned around and picked a ght with Scott. Other issues were also coming to a head. Most notably, the U.S. Supreme Court finally reacted to the growing number of federal rulings granting same-sex couples the right to marry in states across the nation by doing nothing. That might have spoken louder than any opinion the court could have issued, and it put Florida one step closer to legalized gay marriage. ZERO WAGES AND PRIVATE JETS Given that theyre in the middle of a campaign that has left Florida covered in more mud than a Woodstock attendee, perhaps the most surprising thing about the debate Friday between Crist and Scott is that they bothered to speak to each other at all. Not that they had much nice to say to each other. Charlie should be known as the zero-wage governor, Scott sniped during a discussion about the minimum wage. ,000 people had a job the day Charlie took office; they day he left office, they made zero wages. Crist, known during his time in of ce as something of a happy warrior, returned re with gusto. It seems to me that Gov. Scott may be out of touch. ... For people who maybe have a private jet, like the governor has, or has a mansion on the waterfront, things seem OK. I understand that, and thats great. But its not great for everybody in Florida, Crist said. They fought about each others time in ofce, with Crist arguing that Scott hadnt pushed hard enough for Medicaid expansion or really done anything to help loweror middle-income Floridians, while Scott returned time and again to the idea that Crist was a smooth talker with a thin resume and a dismal economic record. They fought about issues ranging from samesex marriage to medical marijuana to the federally enforced embargo of Cuba (over which, it should be noted, the governor of Florida has precious little in uence). They fought about basically anything and everything that came up. He will always talk about what hes going to do, but nothing will happen, Scott complained about Crist. Ive never pled the Fifth in my life, Crist said drawing attention to the 75 times Scott invoked his right not to incriminate himself during a deposition in a civil lawsuit. There are two more debates left in the governors race, the next taking place Wednesday in nearby Davie, and few signs that the two will run out of disagreements before those sessions are over. And when they show up for the second debate, Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie hopes to join them. Wyllie is suing the Florida Press Association, Leadership Florida and Broward College, arguing that it is in the public interest for him to be included. When the press association and Leadership Florida rst announced their 2014 debate plans last year, they noted in a press release that to be included, a candidate must have the support of at least 15 percent of likely voters, as determined by a poll conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research a level Wyllie has not reached. Florida Press Association President and CEO Dean Ridings said the qualifying data were known well in advance. (Disclosure: The News Service of Florida is an associate member of the press group; and The Wakulla News is a member.) We have maintained the same criteria since 2010, Ridings said. Weve not changed it, and it would not be fair to the other seven candidates whove quali ed to run for governor if we were to change our criteria in midstream. SCOTTS OTHER OPPONENT But Crist wasnt alone in taking on Scott this week. Sheldon, running a campaign for attorney general that can fairly be characterized as a long shot, helped gang up on the Republican governor. The former state lawmaker and agency head led a lawsuit Wednesday against Scott for allegedly under-reporting personal nancial interests. Scotts campaign called the lawsuit a campaign distraction orchestrated by Crist, something that would hardly be surprising if it turned out to be true. Political or not, the case isnt exactly the rst time Scotts personal nances have resulted in a court challenge. A judge this summer ruled in favor of Scotts use of a blind trust to maintain his nances, though the case is being appealed. The new suit claims Scott has failed to adhere to nancial-disclosure requirements in the states Sunshine Amendment by failing to list all his assets, and Sheldon claimed Bondi has fallen down on the job. It came on the heels of a report by the Miami Herald and Tampa Bay Times that information provided by Scott on his state-required nancial-disclosure forms differed from what he has submitted to the IRS and to the Securities and Exchange Commission. I dont know why hes done this, Sheldon said. To the people of Florida, whether youre worth $100 million or $300 million, as a taxpayer I dont even understand those numbers, and most of the people of Florida dont understand those numbers, but thats not whats relevant. The question is what is he hiding? Scott spokesman Greg Blair pointed to Scotts use of a blind trust that manages his finances and described the lawsuit as campaign mudslinging. As part of his nancial disclosure this year, Scott ended a blind trust he formed in 2011 and publicly listed his investments. After the disclosure documents were led, Scott placed his investments into a new blind trust. GAY MARRIAGE SOONER THAN LATER? There could soon be new business in Florida for caterers and invitation printers, and thousands more Floridians might need to set reminders on their cell phones about the dates of their wedding anniversaries. The U.S. Supreme Court turned away appeals from cases in Virginia, Oklahoma and Utah that paved the way for gay marriage in those states, something that could soon lead to same-sex unions in Florida. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle in August struck down Floridas ban on same-sex marriages, but he also placed a stay on the ruling while the cases from the three other states were pending at the U.S. Supreme Court. Justices declined Monday to hear those cases, as well as similar cases from Indiana and Wisconsin, giving victories to gaymarriage supporters who had won in lower courts. Attorneys for same-sex couples quickly asked Hinkle to move forward with ending Floridas ban. In a ve-page motion led Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Tallahassee, ACLU attorneys asked the judge to lift the stay and wrote that Mondays decision sent a strong signal that any remaining doubt about the Supreme Courts ultimate resolution of the legal issue does not justify continuing to deny recognition of same-sex couples valid out-of-state marriages. STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist meet in the rst of three highly anticipated gubernatorial debates. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Its so bizarre its like up there with aliens arriving and Elvis is still alive. ... This is almost like a cult. Its like Reverend Moon or Jim Jones type stuff.--Trial attorney John Morgan, who is leading the ght for an amendment allowing the use of medical marijuana, on a legal theory that the practice is already legal in Florida and that Morgans amendment could undermine it.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Stretch runs for campaigns, gay marriage -Janet 000JGBY

Rams and Ewes might want to shear their big spending plans until a more favorable nancial picture begins to emerge by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Thrift counts both at home and at work. So you might want to rethink major purchases or investments. Also, be wary of a so-called revelation about a previous decision. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Both household budgets and workplace accounts might benefit from some judicious trimming of unnecessary expenses. A partnership could lead to an unexpected challenge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously overlooked opportunity could re-emerge with a new travel-related matter. Check this out carefully to see if its what you really want before you decide one way or another. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This could be the start of a new career-changing phase, so start marking down your many accomplishments for those who need to know how much you have to offer. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Its not too early for the sometimes procrastinating Virgo to start making those long-distance travel plans. The sooner you decide where to go, when to go and how to go, the better. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Financial matters once again gure in any major action you might take regarding career, travel or other endeavors. Youll want a ready reserve to help you back up those moves. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Trying to resolve a problem in a personal relationship could be more difficult than youd expected. Look into the possibility that someone might be interfering for his or her own reasons. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A project you once rejected might be more attractive because of changes that you feel you can now work with. The weekend is especially favorable to family matters. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This is a good week for the gregarious Goat to enjoy being with people you care for. You might even want to show off those creative kitchen skills youre so adept at. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A colleague might think your attitude is patronizing or even outright insulting. True. That might be his or her problem. But you might want to take some reassuring steps anyway. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Its a good time to jettison those old concepts about a family matter you might have been holding on to. This will help make room for a new and more enlightened way of dealing with it. BORN THIS WEEK: You like to analyze a puzzling situation before you try to resolve it. This makes you excel at getting things done the right way. 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
Page 10B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, October 16, 2014 thewakullanews.com The Wakulla Newssports news and team views SportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track CoachThe WHS cross country teams joined more than 100 other high school cross country teams at the ARP (Apalachee Regional Park) east of Tallahassee for one of Floridas largest and most competitive cross country meets of the year. Since this is also the State Meet course, almost all of the top programs throughout Florida were in attendance to gain some racing experience on the course prior to next months State Finals. More than 2,500 runners participated in 10 different races throughout the morning, with those running early enjoying the manicured course and cool weather. However, by midmorning the temperature had risen into the high 80s and the later runners ended up competing under much more difficult conditions. The WHS Boys, competing in the Varsity A Division, were on the starting line at 9:20 a.m., so they were able to enjoy relatively cool weather. They were ranked 11th in the Division going in and competed well, ending up in 10th place out of 25 teams. They were led once again by sophomore Bryce Cole who ran a new PR (personal record) and State Elite time of 17:36, nishing in 22nd place. Other scoring for the team included: Lane Williams (18:33, 71st), Travis Parks (18:38, 80th), Evan Guarino (18:49, 90th) and Mitchell Atkinson (18:50, 91st). New PRs were set by Cole, Guarino, Caleb Wiedeman (19:41) and Riley Welch (19:46). The local girls alsocompeted in the Varsity A Division, but didnt start until almost 10 a.m., so they faced increasing heat and tougher conditions. Haleigh Martin, one of the top girls in the Big Bend, once again led the WHS girls. She ran in 8th to 10th place through the rst two miles of the race, then ran a strong nal mile to move up through the eld and nished in fourth place in the State Elite time of 20:22 for the 5K distance. Lydia Wiedeman ran a solid race to nish as the second WHS runner, finishing in 52nd place in a time of 22:55. Completing the scoring for the local girls were Connie Lewis (70th, 23:36), Juliana Prestia (97th, 24:21) and Emily Lawrence (104th, 24:40). The girls finished in 13th place out of 19 teams. The JV races didnt start until 11:20 for the boys and 11:55 for the girls, and by then the conditions dramatically affected the times turned in by the athletes. However, several WHS boys still managed to run new PRs. These included Shawn St. Martin (21:25), Sam Roddebberry (21:42) and Russell Bergantino (22:38). For the girls, Natalie Henderson also ran a new PR, improving her best time by 1:03. The teams will travel to Marianna on Saturday, Oct. 18, to compete in the Panhandle Championships, one of the premier meets in North Florida.By JOEY JACOBSRMS CoachAfter weeks of improved play, the Riversprings Middle School football team took a step back on Sept. 30, when they took a trip to Suwannee County to take on the Bulldogs. A multitude of RMS mistakes led to a 24-0 loss to the Bulldogs. The Bears cant spend any time lamenting the loss, however, as the annual Sandgnat Slobberknocker is up next. RMS takes on cross-county rival WMS for the County Middle School Championship. The stakes are a little higher this year. Both the Bears and the Wildcats are in the Western division of the Big Bend Middle School Conference. If WMS wins, they will represent the division in the conference championship. If RMS wins, it will create a threeway tie, and points allowed by WMS, RMS, and Marianna in their respective games with each other will decide who represents the West. The Bears have been working hard, hoping to achieve their championship goals. The game will be played at Wakulla High School at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 17.
