State of the State Address
On Tuesday, Jan. 10,
Governor Rick Scott kicked
off the Legislative Session
in Tallahassee with his 2012
"State of the State" address:
His speech included a wide
range of topics, emphasizing
the importance and his focus of
gaining employment, securing
quality education and keeping
the cost of living low..Govemrnor
Scott made clear his duty as
governor was to "leave our

in the private sector in Florida
has risen, making Florida the
third most job producing state
in the nation. The creation of
these new private sector jobs
has resulted in the second
largest drop in unemployment
in the United States. Governor
Scott stated "this is a clear sign
that the promise of Florida still

state of Florida. stating. "If we
can continue to create a culture
of excellence in our schools,
Florida will merit a full chapter
in that history that describes
the reawakening of a mighty,
prosperous nation." Scott's plan
is to refocus on an outdated
tenure system and instead,
reward its best performers
for excelling in education the
students of Florida. "Support
for education is the most
significant thing we can do
to ensure both short-term job
growth and long-term economic
prosperity for our state." His
recommendation budget is $1
billion in new state funding
for education. Governor Scott
believes this is the single most
important issue to be made for
Florida's future and is an issue
on which he cannot budge.
The governor also wants
to monitor Florida's current
pension plan, ensuring it will
not become a liability for
Florida's taxpayers or those
workers who rely on it. Also
on the agenda is to reform auto
insurance by cutting fraud and
abuse, which has cost Floridians

the speech on a strong note:
"None of us can do this alone,

passion for education and the

in Florida. "He was speaking

SRWMD announces conservation
easement purchase on the Aucilla
The Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) has
purchased a conservation easement on more than 167 acres of land
on the Aucilla River in Jefferson County.
The easement, purchased from Chris and Kristine Layman, will
require the land to remain in its natural state and condition in order
to protect water resources.
The conservation easement will provide 71.73 acres of springs
protection, 90.5 acres of surfacewater protection, 167 acres of
floodplain protection, and 3,085 feet or 0.58 miles of river frontage
The purchase was completed using Florida Forever funding in the
amount of $251,000 or $1,500 per acre.
A conservation easement is a perpetual agreement that leaves the
basic ownership and management of property with the landowner
but permanently restricts the use and alteration of the land. The
district currently protects more than 124,000 acres of water resource
lands using this tool.

Milder days 'perfect' for winter garden chores...
Take the time now to get the lawn mower
serviced. Sharpen or replace the blades, check
the fluids and make sure it is in good working
condition now while usage is minimal.
Clean out bird feeders and bird boxes so they
will be fresh and ready for migrating birds.
You can take advantage of the milder days
during the winter to do excavation work in the
yard and create new garden beds for planting in
the spring. Yes, winter is a great time for
gardening, so go outside and enjoy it; the heat
and humidity will be here before you know it!

Willard reports, "The month's activities began enjoyably with

a Medieval theme was enjoyed by all and ended with a gourmet
meal of garden salad, bourbon basted roast chicken accompamied
by French green beans and herb roasted potatoes. Especially tasty
was the finale of bread pudding. A.MI Belles send their compliments
to the performers and the chef for a delightful evening.
"December was also our annual Christmas buffet and cookie

dishes and home-baked cookies. We went home with, bags of
cookies to enjoy later with our friends and families." she said.

Four Florida panthers have died in 2012
Florida panthers are off to a
rough start in 2012, with three
deaths documented by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Last year, 24 Florida panther
deaths were recorded, but FWC
biologists also observed 11
radio-collared females giving
birth to 32 panther kittens.
Overall, the known number of
newborn panthers in 2011
appears to have offset the
known number of panther
Today, an estimated 100 to
160 adults of this federally
endangered species live in
Florida.. Panthers almost
disappeared from the wild in
this state when their numbers
fell to fewer than 30 in the
1970s. Since then, their
population has been increasing.
Collisions with vehicles
continues to be the greatest
source of human-caused
mortality to this long-tailed cat
that can weigh up to 160
pounds and grow to 6 feet or
Already, in just the first week
of 2012, there were two
documented deaths of panthers
hit by vehicles on highways in
Collier County, where the
greatest concentration of
panthers in the state is found.
The third fatality was caused by
a fight with another panther.
Among the 24 documented
panther deaths in 2011, nine
deaths, or more than a third,
were due to collisions with
"Florida panther deaths are
most often the result of one of
two things: collisions with
vehicles or aggression from
other panthers," said Kipp
Frohlich, head of the Imperiled
Species Management Section
at the FWC. "We can't control
panthers fighting when they are
defending their territory; that is
a part of nature. But we can do
something about human-caused
"People who slow down and
drive carefully in rural areas,
especially where panther
crossings are identified, can
make a difference in
conservation of this
endangered species. It is
especially important to slow
down and keep a careful
lookout at dawn or dusk, when
panthers are most likely to be
on the move," Frohlich said.
The FWC continues to work
with many partners to conserve
and increase habitat available
to panthers on both public and
private lands. This is a critical
step to ensuring the survival of
panthers, the official state
animal of Florida.
People are encouraged to
report sightings of an injured or
dead panther by calling the
FWC's Wildlife Alert Hotline at
888-404-FWCC (3922) or
#FWC or *FWC on a cell
phone. Another option is
