The squad shut out the Rutherford Rams beating them 1-0 at home to win the regional semi-“ nal. Conner Smith hit a “ rst inning home run and that was enough for the win. Jake Walker closed out the game on the mound, solidifying the War Eagle win as he wore out Rutherford batters. He got the “ nal Ram batter to pop out to Jeff Barnes and the Wakulla fans celebrated in the stands as the team rushed the “ eld. The team was ecstatic and proud. It was great to see them pile out of the dugout and go over the fences after the victory,Ž said Head Coach Mike Gauger. Rutherford entered the game with a record of 22-6, undefeated in district play. The Rams would have been favored by all accounts were it not for the fact that one of their losses was to Wakulla, one week ago, for the district championship. The War Eagles were on a three-game winning streak that had carried them through districts and the Regional 14-A quarter“ nals. With a league record of 0-4, Wakulla had been beating teams in the playoffs that had overwhelmed them in the season. Ryan Zimba and Jake Walker have been pitching extremely well and it seems we may be starting to hit a little better in timely situations,Ž said Gauger when asked about Wakullas recent wins. Wakulla set out Friday to prove their success was not a ” uke. Rutherford was hoping it was. The War Eagles did not disappoint the hometown faithful. Senior pitcher Ryan Zimba came up huge. He struck out eight batters and with the combined efforts of Walker completely nulli“ ed Rutherfords offense. They did not score a run. With the unwavering defensive “ elding displayed by Wakulla, it took only a solo home run by Conner Smith in the “ rst inning to propel the team to victory. With the win, Wakulla will carry a record of 18-9 to Jacksonville where they will take on Bishop Kenny for the regional “ nal. With only two games separating the team from a regional championship, it is an exciting time to be a War Eagle. Gauger looks forward to a big road game and a chance to see his young men compete again. They have put in the time, having all played their whole lives, so hopefully they can just get out there and rely on past experiences. I want them to have fun, enjoying what theyre doing and playing for,Ž Gauger said.War Eagles win semi-“ nal 1-0 over Rutherford e swing that won the game JENNIFER HAHNWho says baseball doesnt have cheerleaders?

If they win, they will go to the state play-o By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA Wakulla County grand jury has returned an indictment for two counts of “ rst-degree murder against Andrew Michael Wilson, and the state attorneys office immediately filed a notice of intent to seek the death penalty against him. The grand jury was convened on Friday, May 6, and the 21 jurors heard the case against Wilson … and returned an indictment for two counts of firstdegree murder, a charge of attempted “ rst-degree murder, burglary of an occupied dwelling armed with a deadly weapon with a person assaulted, and violation of a domestic violence injunction. Immediately after the indictment was unsealed, Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno “ led a notice that the state would be seeking the death penalty against Wilson. Wilson, 24, is charged with killing John McKenzie, 62, and Patrick Pittman, 24, in a home in Wakulla Station on March 30. He is also charged with attempting to murder his former girlfriend, Gabrielle McKenzie, 19, with whom he has a 1-year-old son. Gabrielle McKenzie is recovering from knife wounds to her throat. The probable cause affidavit on file in the courthouse indicates that Wilson wrapped his feet with plastic bags and used duct tape to hold the bags on. He parked his vehicle about a quarter-mile from the McKenzie home and got in using a hidden key he knew about. At some point during the attack inside the house, Wilsons “ ngers were nearly severed. He left the scene and was driving his truck to Georgia when he crashed possibly due to bloodloss from his wounds. It has been con“ rmed that it was Pittman who placed the 911 call that brought deputies to the house. While he died before deputies arrived, his actions are credited with saving the life of Gabrielle McKenzie. The 1-year-old was in the house when deputies got on the scene … bruised, covered with blood and crying inconsolably.

On May 9, “ nal interviews were held with David Edwards and Pam Portwood and the public was invited to attend. Edwards lives in Sopchoppy and since 2009 has worked as project manager for Allens Excavation. His background is mainly in development. He served as the vice chairman of the Wakulla County Code Enforcement Board and currently serves as a Sopchoppy City Commissioner. Edwards said he applied for the position because he has always wanted to be a public servant and hoped to have the chance to become a county administrator at the end of his career.Continued on Page 5AProposals received for Wakulla SpringsBy JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netThe process of contracting out concession operations at Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park and lodge is moving forward as seven proposals have been submitted to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The proposals were due on May 4 and are currently being reviewed by Division staff, according to Public Information Of“ cer Kristin Lock. Once the evaluations are complete, the respondents will be listed at DEPs website, Lock said. Evaluations are anticipated to be completed as early as this week, she added. In light of the need to quickly select a vendor to begin operation of the parks concessions, staff is working to expedite this process and begin negotiations as early as this month,Ž Lock said. President of the Friends of the Wakulla Springs Ron Piasecki said he was told the evaluations would be completed by May 20 and then negotiations would begin. Were optimistic,Ž Piasecki said. The request for proposals includes the operation of the 27-room lodge, gift shop and restaurant. If a suitable vendor is not found, the state has said the concessions could close with the start of the new “ scal year on July 1. The idea to contract out concessions to a private vendor came as a way to cut costs by the state. Other parks seeking private vendors for concessions are Hillsborough River State Park and Weeki Wachee Springs State Park.Candidates for county administrator are down to Edwards, PortwoodThe Blue Crab Festival was held in Panacea last weekend, including the ever-popular crab picking contest, above.

Wakulla was one of three selected from the state of Florida. It was a competitive thing to be at the leadership academy,Ž said Paul Johnson who attended the conference representing the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce. Others on the team were County Commissioner Lynn Artz, Leon Jacobs representing the Industrial Development Authority and Pam Portwood representing several non-profit organizations including Florida Foresight and Sustainable Big Bend. We had a very diverse and compelling team,Ž Johnson said. The academy was possible in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Clean Economy Development Center and the Institute for Sustainable Communities. Through a grant from the Surdna Foundation, all expenses were paid for those chosen. The workshop was intended to provide training and peer learning opportunities focused on improving, expanding and accelerating communities efforts to develop new economic development programs, such as energy ef“ ciency, renewable energy, ecological restoration and community resilience. Johnson said the idea was to “ nd the economies of the future post Hurricane Katrina and the BP Oil Spill. Johnson said they were able to see how other communities reinvented themselves and their economic diversi“ cation and recovery plan. Like a lot of coastal communities, we are on the cusp of rede“ ning ourselves,Ž Johnson said. A main idea of the workshop was to share experiences and learn from each other. The two key words of the academy were sustainability and resiliency, Johnson said. Communities must have economies that sustain for the future and they have to be resilient from natural and man made disasters, he said. The workshop included guest speakers, discussions and presentations on energy ef“ ciency and renewable energy, aligning resources and funding for sustainable economic development, energy ef“ ciency and renewable energy frameworks and tools, “ nancing strategies for a sustainable economy and restoring local communities, ecosystems and economies. The next step will be for the team to come back together and debrief, Johnson said. There is also a joint meeting of the countys Industrial Development Authority and Economic Development Council scheduled for May 17. Johnson said they will come up with a joint plan and a speci“ c project for economic development. We need a plan of moving forward,Ž Johnson said. Johnson said they will decide on a short term project to collaborate on. Johnson said one project they are looking into is one in Port St. Lucie. They set up a sustainable alternative energy project. What we learned at the academy will help a lot, Johnson said. It was a great opportunity for Wakulla County,Ž Johnson said.Wakulla represented at Sustainable Leadership Academy SPECIAL TO THE NEWS CONFERENCE ATTENDEES: Leon Jacobs, chair of the Wakulla County Industrial Development Authority, Steve Nicholas of the Institute for Sustainable Communities, Pam Portwood, representing Florida Foresight and the Wakulla Tourist Development Council, and Paul Johnson, representing the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Council.Newly refurbished Heron launched at Wakulla Springs Wakulla Springs State Park Manager Brian Fugate looks over the new electric motors on the Heron.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netWakulla County will say goodbye to another county employee this week as Scott Jackson leaves for Bay County. Jackson serves as the Wakulla County Extension Director and has since August 2007. Hes been a great employee,Ž said Interim County Administrator Tim Barden. Prior to moving to Wakulla County, Jackson was the Florida Sea Grant Extension Agent for Okaloosa and Walton counties. Jackson has a bachelors degree in wildlife and “ sheries from Texas A&M University, as well as a masters degree in marine aquaculture. He heard of the open director position for Wakulla County and had always liked the area so he applied. Jackson said, I always enjoyed and admired the natural resources.Ž The opportunity presented itself and Jackson said it was a no brainer. Its a beautiful place to live and work,Ž Jackson said. Later on, he said he discovered how nice the people are too. Something he said hell always remember is the love and support his family received after his wife, Angela, was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. Ill never forget and Ill always be grateful,Ž Jackson said. Angela is healthy now, Jackson said, and part of that reason is because of the community, including members of his church. Some of the accomplishments Jackson is proud of is the response his of“ ce gave during these tough economic times. This involves the need for increased food at local food banks. We have to make sure we have enough food,Ž Jackson said. Jackson said they set up a system that took a lot of work to implement and involved different agents and groups working together. Jackson estimated that about 25 percent of Wakulla County households utilize food banks. In 2007 and 2008, the number was about a third of that. Theres a pressing need,Ž Jackson said. That we have to continue to work on.Ž Jackson said he was also proud of the involvement the extension of“ ce had in the oil spill. The of“ ce worked on wildlife issues and helped facilitate training for 900 community response volunteers. It was a real memorable event,Ž Jackson said. He added that the of“ ce also helped with the 1,000 of people who showed up for the vessels of opportunity training held at Wakulla High School. Jackson said although he is leaving Wakulla County, he will continue to work with the county on regional issues. Im not going that far away,Ž Jackson said. He will be a marine science agent for Bay County and will be closer to his wifes family. The cooperative extension service is administered by the University of Florida who has a partnership with Wakulla County. The county pays for half of the directors salary, Barden said. We definitely got our moneys worth,Ž Barden said of Jackson. Hes knowledgeable on so many different aspects.Ž The University of Florida will interview and recommend a director to Barden. Barden said it typically takes four to six months. In the meantime, Shelley Swenson, extension agent, will serve as interim director. Shes de“ nitely quali“ ed,Ž Barden said. Jackson agreed and said, Shell do a good job and bridge the gap.Ž Barden said he is unsure if Swenson would want the job permanently. I just hope we get someone half as good as Scott,Ž Barden said. Jackson wanted to encourage people to continue to support the extension of“ ce and provide the new director with that same support. That lead role is key and very important,Ž Jackson said. The mission of the cooperation extension service is to improve lives by developing knowledge in agriculture, natural resources and the life sciences and to make that knowledge accessible to sustain and enhance the quality of human life. Locally this is done through research-based educational programs in Agriculture, Horticulture, Family and Consumer Sciences, marine interest and 4-H Youth Development. A farewell reception will be held for Jackson on Friday, May 13 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the extension of“ ce. Jackson leaving as extension agent GOVERNMENT SPECIAL TO THE NEWSMOVING ON: Wakulla Extension Agent Scott Jackson, who has been here since 2007, is leaving to take a position in Bay County. By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netThe county commission has decided to move forward with request for proposals to get a franchise hauler for trash pickup and recycling. The hauler would also be responsible for disposal. Under this plan, county residents would be required to pay for trash pickup. This option was presented by Commissioner Alan Brock last year during the controversial solid waste assessment that was being proposed. In September 2010, the commission held a final public hearing regarding the fee and voted three to two, with Commissioners Lynn Artz and Brock opposing, to not adopt the fee. However, in December 2010, the commission held a workshop on solid waste and decided at that time to readdress the solid waste assessment. The assessment would charge each household $112 per year and they would no longer have to pay tipping fees at the transfer station. Commercial properties would not be charged the assessment and would still pay tipping fees. The commission is looking at charging this fee to pay for costs to close and seal the landfill, build or upgrade its current transfer station and monitor the existing closed landfills around the county. However, Brock has said that if the county is going to charge a fee, it should also provide a service. At the May 2 meeting, Commissioner Randy Merritt suggested the county issue a request for proposals for solid waste collection to see what is out there, but to also move forward with the solid waste assessment. Lets “ gure out what its going to cost,Ž Merritt said. County Attorney Heather Encinosa suggested the commission see if it wants to pursue a franchise hauler and then make a decision regarding the assessment. Artz said she wanted to follow the attorneys recommendation. She added that there was no need to spend $15,000 on mailing out notices to residents about the solid waste assessment if they decide to go with the other option. Encinosa said there would be time to issue an RFP and if the commission decided against that to then put the solid waste assessment on the tax roll. The deadline to put the assessment on the tax roll in November is Sept. 15. Merritt said he is against mandatory garbage pickup, but is OK with seeing whats out there. Im not in favor of government telling me to have my garbage picked up,Ž Merritt said. Brock said most people he has talked to are against the concept all together, or want curbside. Artz suggested that included in the RFP is closure of the land“ ll, garbage collection and periodic pickup of bulk items, in addition to recycling. Commissioner Mike Stewart said an issue with bulk items is residents having to wait and hold on to the item. He also wondered what people would do with construction and demolition trash. I think it will encourage more woods dumping,Ž Stewart said. Brock suggested people take those items to Marpan Recyling. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said dumpsters could be placed at the existing site to accommodate for those items. Fleming added that the one hauler would be responsible for everything. Stewart said he thought it was going to be too expensive. Were a very rural county,Ž Stewart said. He added that the biggest complaint he has heard from citizens who live on dirt roads about having to drag their trash cans a long distance to bring it out to the road for pickup. Fleming said the county has to do something, either curbside or the assessment. Wakulla County has to make a change,Ž Fleming said. Improvements are needed at the transfer station to bring it into compliance with the Department of Environmental Protection, as well covering the cost of closing the land“ ll. The commission decided to proceed with issuing the RFP and will vote on advertising the RFP on solid waste collection at its May 16 meeting.County looking at curbside pickupBy JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netAfter the last county commission meeting and the idea of consolidating the Wakulla County Public Safety Department with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce was discussed, Commissioner Lynn Artz said she heard from numerous “ re“ ghters and EMS employees who were upset. These people were upset because no one told them that the sheriff was performing a study of possible cost savings by consolidating these services. That study came as a surprise to them,Ž Artz said. She then presented to the commission what the Wakulla County United Firefighters Association requested. WCUFFA wanted the commission to hold a town hall meeting to let EMS and fire provide information about their services, ways they have already cut costs and additional ideas to reduce costs. They also wanted to be able to perform their own study of possible cost savings if EMS and fire are consolidated under the county commission. They also requested that staff evaluate the effectiveness and ef“ ciency of “ re and EMS and compare those services to other jurisdictions. Theres some assumption that our department is inef“ cient,Ž Artz said. She added that she wanted to see the data that supports that statement. Wakulla Station Volunteer Fire Department Chief Delana Johnson said the volunteers were concerned about how consolidation would impact them. She added that they were also concerned about losing their voice and budget reductions. Give serious consideration to both sides,Ž Johnson said. Crawfordville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Darcy Brazier said, What does the sheriff know about “ re“ ghting?Ž Please give us a chance to participate in this,Ž Brazier added. Commissioner Jerry Moore said “ re and EMS should get together and see what they can do to save money. Commissioner Randy Merritt said he is willing to look at anything and doesnt feel the fire department is inef“ cient. However, he said he feels it could cut back in some administrative areas. Stewart said he wants to know what the “ re department needs in order to operate and to also discuss this at the committee meetings held with the “ re chiefs. Brazier said the department would like to present its plan to be more ef“ cient. Moore said he wanted to look at everything. Theres no sacred cow in this county,Ž Moore said. The commission will hold a workshop for “ re and EMS to present their ideas on May 26 at 5 p.m. in the commission chambers. Workshop set on Fire, EMS consolidation Oil spill bill passes The much-watched bill that is intended to promote economic development in the counties most affected by last summers Deepwater Horizon oil spll passed the legislature last week. SB 2156 creates the Department of Economic Opportunity with the executive director of the new agency will be con“ rmed by the Senate. The bill also includes language relating to oil spill recovery for the Panhandle … including Wakulla County … de“ ning the most affected counties and waiving certain requirements for companies seeking to open there. The bill moves Of“ ce of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development, the Department of Community Affairs, and the Agency Workforce Innovation functions into the new agencies Oct. 1. The counties are Bay, Escambia, Franklin, Gulf, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton, and Wakulla. It also appropriates $10 million per year for three “ scal years to develop and implement an economic strategic plan in counties designated as disproportionally affected. It directs how funds received by the state for damages caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill may be directed.… from News Service of Florida City of Sopchoppy MAY 12, 19, 2011WORKSHOP NOTICEThe City of Sopchoppy will be holding a workshop Monday, May 23 to review the proposed Employee Pay Classifications and Personnel Policies of the City.

Sherri Kraeft 4-H Coordinator Editor, The News: One of our key county leaders is soon leaving to pursue his career elsewhere. Later this month Scott Jackson, UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Director will move his talents and his family to serve the Extension clientele in Bay County. In the short time he has been in Wakulla County he has facilitated many changes within the of“ ce, as well as all across the County. His impact on his staff will never be forgotten. I know that everyone who has worked with him professionally and personally feels similarly. I hope you will join the Extension personnel for a gathering in his honor from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, May 13 at the Extension Of“ ce. Assist us with expressing our gratitude to Scott for a job well done. Shelley Swenson UF/IFAS Wakulla County FCS Agent By KEVIN HALLOchlockonee Bay UMCIn light of the recent news events of this past week, with the killing of Osama bin Laden and those who were with him, I am both horrified and sickened by the actions and the words of some who call themselves Christians. I realize that this written statement will go against the grain of many, but I invite you to listen (and read) before you make a “ nal judgment on my conviction. I come before you now as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to which I have covenanted to Almighty God to be His ambassador of Grace and Love to all people. If it were not for His Grace we all would be destined to eternal separation from His presence, a certain and undeniable hell. But out of His love for all people, even while we are covered in sin, He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die upon the cross, to be for all people the “ nal atonement for sin. This is His Grace. The Grace of Almighty God. Grace afforded to all people who receive it unto themselves. Reasonably then, we are persuaded under conviction of Gods Holy Law to prevent the efforts of murder of innocent men, women, and children of the whole world. We are persuaded to advocate life to the fullest means possible for all people. And we are persuaded to mourn for those who are killed before their predestined time. Vengeance belongs to God, and God alone! Who amongst us are deemed worthy to proclaim and judge an individual unworthy? Only God and God alone! To witness a parade-like atmosphere where people dance in the streets upon the news of bin Ladens death is no less distasteful than the parade-like atmosphere where a radical sect of people danced in the streets upon the news of the attacks. Have we succumbed to the same level of unrighteousness? Indeed, we can be grateful that there will be no longer any murderous plans of attack from bin Laden upon anyone, but what of his next successor and then the next for years to come. Throughout the history of the world mankind has plotted to kill his neighbor for his own sel“ sh desires. Be they religious desires or just pure greedy desires. I call upon all people who claim the name ChristianŽ to fall now upon your knees and begin to fervently pray for those who would be enemies of one another throughout the world. Hear again these words of Jesus Christ, You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor, and hate your enemy. But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.Ž Matthew 5:43-45 NIV Where have our prayers gone for our enemies or have they even been offered up? We as a nation founded under Biblical principles have removed all trace of God within the government establishment, yet we hear the leaders proclaim that God has smiled down upon us. I cannot stand before you nor sit idly by without asking you to re” ect upon the principles and teaching of Jesus Christ as you determine how you will handle this occurrence of human death. It saddens me greatly to realize how many will sit within a sanctuary this Sunday morning, within Gods presence, and give thanks for the death of any individual. When in fact we should be on our knees praying for them to come to the Light of Christ Jesus rather than asking for them to be sent to the darkest portion of hell. I am reminded of a criminal who was being duly executed according to his crime, by his own admission, as recorded in the Gospel of Luke. Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals „ one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.Ž And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.Ž The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar and said, If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.Ž There was a written notice above him, which read: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: Arent you the Christ? Save yourself and us!Ž But the other criminal rebuked him. Dont you fear God,Ž he said, since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.Ž Then he said, Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.Ž Jesus answered him, I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.Ž Luke 23:33-43 NIV That which Christ Jesus did for the criminal upon the cross, hours or perhaps moments before his death, could Christ Jesus not do for our enemies? Even the like of Osama bin Laden? I welcome debate upon this statement in our leisure time, certainly not during our time of Worship to Almighty God. For this is His time, as all-time should be.

We cant continue asking people to do more and more with less and less because at some point the system will break down. This budget puts too great a strain on our schools and public institutions and for that reason I felt I must oppose it,Ž he said. Additionally, less discretionary income for these hard workers has direct impacts on many of the businesses in my district. As a matter of fact, the three percent Florida Retirement System budget issues will reduce the spending power in the 11 counties that I represent by over $77 million. That is going to devastate everything from restaurants, to dry cleaners and many other small businesses in my district. For these reasons and many others, I cannot support this budget.Ž In debate, Sen. Montford outlined the reasons for his opposition while acknowledging the challenges of crafting a budget in a tough year. Sen. Montford expressed gratitude and respect for his colleagues, from both sides of the aisle, and thanked the Senate Leadership for the opportunity he was afforded, as a Senate newcomer, to be part of the process.

LettersGUEST EDITORIALBy JOHN CRABTREECenter for Rural AffairsMy daffodils are in bloom, setting my ” ower bed ablaze with beautiful yellow ” owers. Every available space in my house that gets direct sunlight is dedicated to seedlings for my garden. All this reminds us of the importance of farming, ranching and local food production to many of Americas rural communities. And the national resurgence of gardening is a hopeful sign for the role local foods can play in revitalizing rural communities. The only way to appreciate the true value of a tomato (or any other vegetable) is to experience the effort and sheer joy of raising one yourself. Thats one reason the Center for Rural Affairs, with help from USDA and Siouxland Community Foundation grants, helped create the Siouxland Community Garden project (www.cfra. org/node/2735). A partnership with the public library, extension of“ ce and the City of South Sioux City, Neb., the project covers organic practices, presentations from local market farmers and hands-on garden training. But it doesnt stop there, offering trainings for potential market gardeners and new farmers that include business planning, marketing and more. In its second year, the project is a model that other communities should emulate. Little things are often important things. Gardens provide a sense of community ownership, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. Those of us who would see our communities … rural and urban … know the bene“ ts of a renewed and revitalized local food system should do what we can to become a part of it, even if only in a small way.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 – Page 5AHe added that in his professional life, he has worked with a lot of county managers and city staffs and admired the work they did. I wanted that opportunity,Ž Edwards said. In these economic times and the real estate market the way it is, the desire to be a county administrator was pushed to the forefront, he said. I feel like I have good, well rounded experience and would bring a lot to the county,Ž Edwards said. Edwards is married to Lara Beck Edwards, who is administrative assistant to the county administrator. She was hired by former administrator Ben Pingree. Portwood lives in Crawfordville and has lived in Wakulla County since 1991. She currently serves as the director of the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council and the resource development of“ cer for Tallahassee Community College. She worked for Wakulla County as director of the office of special projects for a little more than a year and prior to that was the director of the Wakulla County Grants Department for almost 10 years. Portwood said her 28 years of public administration and 14 years speci“ cally dealing with Wakulla County make her uniquely quali“ ed for the position. Portwood said it wasnt an easy decision to decide to apply for the position because of what the other county administrators have been through, but knowing who she would be working with and the assets the county has made her want to work with them. And let their light shine a little brighter than it has,Ž she said. Im good at “ nding the strengths and exploiting them.Ž Interview questions The commissioners were given the opportunity to ask each candidate the same questions ranging from experience to improving revenues to their opinion on full public disclosure. Edwards spoke of his experience dealing with developments that were troubled and the steps he would take to improve those developments. First, Edwards said, Youve got to get a hold of the pocket book.Ž After that, he said he would look at potential revenues, try and streamline operations, make cuts and then fundamental changes. And sometimes, he said he would stop all operations and start over. He added that he plans to take the same approach with the county. I need to get in and see whats going on,Ž Edwards said. He said he would look at the money that is going out “ rst, then look at each department and compare the work load to personnel. Portwood had a similar answer and said she would go through the budget with a “ ne tooth comb. She added that she felt some of the county processes needed to be looked at and streamlined. She said she felt some of the countys talents has been displaced and taken off target and she would get it back on track. I can get things moving,Ž Portwood said. In light of the controversy that surrounded Pingree and his home purchase and relationship with county vendors, the candidates were asked if they believed in full public disclosure. Both agreed that anything that is a con” ict or if there was a problem, it would need to be disclosed. Commissioner Randy Merritt then asked each candidate how long they planned to be the county administrator if hired, trying to determine whether this job would be a stepping stone for them. Edwards said, I dont need this for my resume.Ž He added that he plans to retire in Wakulla County as county administrator. Portwood said this position would not be a stepping stone for her, but said she is always open to opportunities. I consider them as they come,Ž Portwood said. Commissioner Lynn Artz then asked each candidate how they would reduce energy and make the county administration and county more energy ef“ cient. Edwards said he would look at the Public Works Department which has a large number of vehicles and see if smaller vehicles can be used or ones that are more fuel ef“ cient. He said he would also look at operating four 10-hour days. He would also look at the building department and make sure the proper vehicles are being used. As far as electricity, he said he would implement a system that shuts off once the of“ ces are closed. He also suggested investing in park and ride areas for those commuting to Tallahassee. Portwood said she would look at where the county is spending the most on energy and see where the problems are and then set policy to address those problems. She added that she would also look at similar counties and see what they have implemented. As far as the county itself, she spoke of Sustainable Big Bend, an organization she co-founded, and how it tries to show people how they can live more simply. She stressed the importance of educating individuals and families. Commissioner Mike Stewart asked what each applicant thought their role was in working with the commission, the county attorney and the community. Edwards said, I will work at the pleasure of the board.Ž He added that he would present the information and then do what the board instructs. With the community, Edwards said his door will always be open. I will be out in the public,Ž Edwards said. Portwood said her role with the board would be to provide it with the information needed to make the right decision. She added that she would also be responsible for the daily functions of the county administration. As far as the community, she said she would be involved in the community and also make government as transparent as possible. Commissioner Alan Brock presented the last question to each candidate and wanted to know what they would do the first month on the job. Edwards said he would get around and meet all the county staff to better understand the entire picture. He added that he would also “ nd out whats going on with each department and develop a strategy to handle any problems and make any changes that were necessary. I believe in stable management,Ž Edwards said. And I want to get there as quick as possible.Ž He added that if a change is made, it will be measured to see if its effective. He also said he will attend all meetings and try and gain as much information as possible. Portwood said she would try and prepare in the months leading up to starting the job. Once in the position, she said she would look at the personnel policy and position descriptions and make sure the county staffs strengths are being used in the best way possible. Commissioner Jerry Moore did not have any questions for the candidates, but did have some comments. Of Edwards, Moore said he was overqualified for the position and the county would be lucky to have him. He told Portwood that there was no question she loves Wakulla County and she should be proud that she made it down to the last two candidates. The commissioners will now chose who their top candidate is and the person who receives the most No. 1 votes could be the next county administrator. At the May 16 meeting, the commission will either approve or disapprove the top candidate. Reade drops out Originally there was supposed to be three candidates at the “ nal interview, but Richard Reade dropped out the day of the interview. After interviews, the commission had Reade ranked as the top candidate. Reade is currently the assistant manager and sustainability of“ cer for the city of Delray Beach. Commissioner Lynn Artz addressed the public informing them why Reade was not present and why she felt he withdrew. His comfort level was not high enough,Ž Artz said Reade told her. She added that Reade showed the commission his interest in the position by taking vacation time for his interview. But she said she didnt feel the commission showed its interest in him. At a previous meeting, Artz had asked the board to reimburse Reade for his mileage for the “ nal interview, but she could not get a second on the motion and it failed. I think we snubbed him,Ž Artz said. I think we were penny wise and pound foolish.Ž She added that the countys reputation probably scared him away. Our county has a welldeserved reputation for nasty politics and character assassinations,Ž Artz said. She continued to say that she didnt think he felt the county would have welcomed him and given him a fair chance. Sadly, I think hes probably right,Ž Artz said. She added that some other county will end up hiring him and Wakulla County will continue to struggle. Im grieving for our county now,Ž Artz said. en there were 2: County administrator job down to Edwards, Portwood LAST 2: Remaining candidates for the county administrator job are David Edwards, top, and Pam Portwood, above.

Come on in and get a great cup of coffee and join the prayer and Bible study. The value of starting a new church is that all human tradition is thrown out, and a new start is made with only the teachings of the Bible to be our guide. Two of the Biblical activities that will always be a part of this church are prayer and Bible study. We need you, and you need us. Of course, the Lord Jesus answers our prayers, but He also gave a special promise for those who meet and pray for each other. I do not know about you, but I need answers to prayer, so I want to do whatever it takes to see my prayers answered and answered with power. One prayer can remove mountains. One prayer can change the world. Jesus promised in Matthew 18:19, Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.Ž We will not know how to pray for you, and you will not know how to pray for us unless you come and meet with us. It says in Amos 3:3, Can two walk together, except they be agreed.ŽNew Testament Bible Church will hold services at The WorksThe ministry group Heartsong will be at Good News Assembly of God on Sunday morning May 15.

Church has never sounded like this as Christian musicians brought their unique worship styles to the third annual Jesus River Festival that took place at the Sopchoppy City Park on March 19. Our vision is to bring all different types of worship styles together into one, exciting worship event,Ž Wakulla One coordinator Denita Lambou said. We want Christians to be able to come together in unity, no matter the church denomination or age or race of the person. The focus is on Christ, and there was something for everyone to enjoy there.Ž More than 500 people came to enjoy the music, which included international performer The Ernie Garcia Band, local talent from Acoustic Praise, the Treadway Brothers, Laura & Ian Tuttle, and Tracy & Jeannie Perez. Also performing was the New Bluegrass Gospel Connection out of South Carolina and Rick McNight from Oklahoma. Although music was the driving force behind the festival, there were also praise dance and mime performances from Free Fire Ministries of Carabelle, personal testimonies, and even an impromptu singing performance from some enthusiastic audience members. Childrens ministries also provided the youngest guests with games, songs, stories and craft activities that focused on the celebration of Jesus Christ. The Jesus River Festival adopted the Feeding Wakulla Task Force as a service project to collect canned goods for local food banks, and the response was great!Ž explained one JRF organizer, Nathan Lewis. JRF was also a great place to learn about some of the local ministries that offer guidance and services for those who may be recovering from addictions or facing unplanned pregnancies or who may just need prayer during a troubling time.Ž There was no charge for the event, and the guests were treated to free burger, hotdog and chicken plates as well as door prizes from community businesses and give-aways from WAVE 94. We really just wanted to bless those who came,Ž Lewis said. And I want to thank the numerous volunteers, churches and businesses who contributed to the success of the festival. However, its not even really about the event. Its all about Christ and His glory.Ž Musicians, ministries, or churches who are interested in learning more or participating in the 2012 Jesus River Festival can contact the organizers at www.jesusriverfest.com, or through the event sponsor Wakulla One at www. wakullaone.com.Jesus River Festival is held in Sopchoppy

Approximately 39 Shriners in Wakulla County wearing their traditional fezzes stood at street intersections and local stores to accept donations from the public. The Wakulla Shrine Club raised more than $1,300 of the more than $5,000 collected during this campaign. Hank Creech, president of the Wakulla Shrine Club, presented a check with a donation of $1,300 collected during this event to Wes Prine, Potentate of Marsuq Shriners, during their monthly meeting at the club located at 4141 Crawfordville Hwy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the great people of Wakulla County for their most generous support of our local efforts to raise money for Tampa Shriners Hospital, especially during this current economic downturn that we all are experiencing. Providing quality care for children is what we do; and as Shriners we are committed to this missionŽ said Creech. Shriners International is a fraternity founded in 1872. Since the beginning individual temples had always supported various charitable activities, and with time came an increased desire to establish an of“ cial philanthropy. In 1920, Shriners voted to establish their “ rst hospital and today, there are 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children providing specialized care to children with orthopaedic conditions, burns of all degrees, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate, regardless of their ability to pay. To this day, Shriners International continues to support the health care system they founded through various fundraisers, such as the traditional Paper Crusades. Shriners Hospitals for Children relies on the generosity of donors to provide the resources needed to carry out its mission of improving the lives of children through treatment, research and education.

Taylor Craig Special to the News On March 4, four teachers from Riversink Elementary in Wakulla County attended a special NASA security training hosted by the Challenger Learning Center in Tallahassee. Fourth grade teachers Margy Callahagn, Megan Crombie and Diane Driggers, along with “ fth grade teacher Laura Hume, worked with NASA Aerospace Education Specialist Lester Morales, to learn how to handle and care for Lunar and Meteorite samples. As a result of this training and certi“ cation, Riversink was granted permission to obtain, on loan, a set of moon rocks and meteorite samples from the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Over the next two weeks, students and teachers (K-5) will have the opportunity to view these samples. The moon rock samples were gathered from the moon during the Apollo missions from the late 1960s to 1970s. The meteorite rocks were collected from samples taken from meteorites that have crashed to Earth over time. On May 12, Riversink Elementary School will host a family Science Exploration night from 6 to 8 p.m. During this evening of hands-on science experiments and investigations, they will have fun with scienti“ c activities from all grade levels. As a part of the experience, the moon rocks and meteorite samples will be on display. On the same evening, we will also have a NASA Space Shuttle tile available to the public. In the fall, our school was given the opportunity to acquire a small piece of the Space Shuttle Program. Riversink Elementary was issued a Space Shuttle tile to keep at the school and use for educational purposes. Our tile has both black and white markings and attaches to the outside of the shuttle orbiter. There are more than 20,000 of these tiles that make up the thermal shield on the space craft. NASA is closing out the Space Shuttle Program and is making these tiles available to schools to teach and inspire a new generation of space science enthusiasts.Riversink gets moon rocks and meteorite samplesWakulla Christian holds special Mother’s Day program On Friday morning, May 6, the Wakulla Christian School student body held a special program to honor their mothers right before Mothers Day.

Special to The NewsWakulla High Volleyballs libero Sarah Roberts signed with Gulf Coast State College receiving an athletic scholarship to play volleyball. Roberts began playing volleyball at Wakulla Middle school as an outside hitter. She continued her freshman year at Wakulla High playing JV, but it wasnt until her sophomore year playing on the varsity team that she switched to libero and found her niche. The Libero is a defensive position that requires a different color jersey because of the freedom they have to roam the court and substitute for any player in the back row. For the next three years she stood out in the opposite colored jersey playing in the back court. It wasnt just her jersey that made her stand out, but her speed, agility and incredible digs that became her trademark. While other players seemed to constantly be in the air, Roberts spent a lot of her time on the ” oor diving for balls, often denying Wakullas opponents of points. It was that speed and the ability to read the opponents that caught the eye of Gulf Coasts head volleyball coach Kyle Peck during last years Regional Playoff game. Afterwards, Coach Peck sought out Roberts and her parents and said, I want her to play for us.Ž Roberts kept her options open talking with other colleges before coming back to Gulf Coast. After visiting the campus I just fell in love with the people at the schoolŽ Roberts said. Wakulla High Volleyball Coach Erica Bunch spoke at the signing saying, Its going to be hard to “ ll the void in the back with Sarah gone; she covered a lot of the court.Ž Head Coach Peck from Gulf Coastalso attended the signing. I am really looking forward to this year with Sarah,Ž he said. I am expecting great things from her.Ž For two years running Roberts was selected for the All Big Bend team, and received an award for Defensive Player of the YearŽ for the War Eagles. Roberts is planning to pursue a degree in the nursing field while on scholarship at Gulf Coast. Sarah is the daughter of Dennis and Lynn Roberts and also has a younger sister, Ashley Roberts, whom she shares the court with as a teammate.www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 – Page 9Asports news and team viewsSportsBy MELODIE JOHNSON Stables by the BayMarina Condrey was my “ rst student at Stables by the Bay. She started riding at 8 years old and has become a great rider. She got interested in doing endurance with me as I would compete in two or three rides a year and she would train with me and my friends. Endurance riding is based on distance, usually 25 to 100 miles, and a “ tted horse to compete. Each rider has a distance to “ nish in certain amount of time. Your horse has to pass a check list in order to be considered “ nished and in what order he came in. Marina would ride one of her horses, but they just couldnt handle the stress or conditions, and would go lame. So I allowed her to ride my older mare, Jaz to train with us. Jaz is a 23-year-old bay ArabianTennessee Walker. Marina has always wanted to compete, but either family matters or the timing got in the way and she couldnt attend the rides with me. We have been training the last two months for this ride in Ocala, and I asked her since it was her 13th birthday coming up and she could ride Jaz, if her mom would let her come. Her mother said yes, so we planned our ride, trained hard and Marinas mother and my husband would go and be our crew … to help with the horses to cool down for vet check. We competed in the Greenway Getaway on April 9 in Ocala at the Florida Horse Park. We did the 25 mile distance, and my horse, Sassy, an 8-year-old, ” ea-bitten gray Arabian mare, was pulled on the “ rst loop for lameness after 15 miles in one and a half hours. But Marina got to go out with another sponsor, Lynn Burks and her daughter, Lexi,to “ nish the race in 7th place. It was the best birthday present I could give her and she was all beside herself. I made one little girls weekend something shell never forget!! I am so very proud of her riding abilties. Sheila and David Condrey of Ocholockonee Bay are the proud parents. Check out Southeast Endurance Riders Association online to get an idea of the event. Its different than Competive Trail Riding.

Well, the winds “ nally quit blowing and Mothers Day weekend was absolutely beautiful. When I went to get bait early Saturday morning it seemed like every other vehicle was towing a boat. Hopefully, your wife or mother had a nice weekend and you took them “ shing if thats what she wanted. Jeff May and Tim Boggs from the Atlanta area came down last Sunday to “ sh. Jeff had plans of fishing offshore with three guys and Tim was going to “ sh inshore with three. Due to the weather, Jeffs plans changed and they all “ shed inshore. Jeff and Tim work with the U.S. Marshals out of Atlanta and absolutely love to “ sh. Each year in the Spring and Fall they plan a trip around the moon phase and bring six other law enforcement people they work with. Unfortunately you cant do anything about the weather and it was absolutely horrible. Jeff was able to get his offshore boat onto the ” ats when the tide “ nally came in on Wednesday and they caught 10 nice trout using Gulps and live shrimp and three were over 22 inches. Tim and his crew ended up with 17 trout and one 22-inch red. This is a real close group of guys who absolutely love their job and love putting criminals behind bars. Mike Pearson from Tifton went offshore on Friday and said they brought back three red grouper and released about 30 black grouper to 33 inches. They “ shed in about 45 feet of water with live pin“ sh. On Saturday he took the wife and kids out and “ shed for trout and Mike said he hooked about a 100-pound tarpon while trout “ shing. He said it jumped once and then it was over. Last week Luke Frazier and Mike Crum “ shed over at Lanark Village and limited out on nice trout using the Gulp and D.O.A. under a cork. He said they “ shed in about four feet of water south of the Lanark Reef and there were “ sh everywhere. Luke asks you to keep Capt. Kents wife in your prayers as she has been in the hospital for several weeks “ ghting some kind of kidney problem. Kent works with Luke at AMS in Medart. Capt. David Fife took his buddy from Destin out on Friday and Saturday and they caught their limit of reds and quite a few trout. They “ shed live bait around the oyster bars. He said they “ shed out around the Long Bar between Shell Point and Panacea and caught lots of trout but most were small. Capt. Randy Peart said he “ shed Friday and Saturday out of the Econfina and because of the stringy grass coming off the bottom and laying like a mat on the top, he had to go to 12 feet of water to catch “ sh. He said they caught a “ sh or got a bite on almost every cast. He took Brad and Kim Kupfer from Stuart and they had two over 22 inches, several 17 and 18 inch “ sh and plenty of small trout, ” ounder, sea bass, and lady “ sh. He “ shed with Rob Vandriver and his two sons on Saturday and had about the same success. They were using Gulps on the bottom. Randy said he is also seeing lots of cobia and some big ones. He said over at St. George some big pompano are being caught and trout are being caught in the bay. At Dog Island plenty of reds are being caught at the stump hole. Jimmy Bevis at Shell Island Fish Camp in St. Marks said he has never seen as many big trout coming off the ” ats as he has this spring. Seven or eight “ sh over “ ve pounds came in over the weekend and all from the West Flats around the stake line. Capt. Sid Stringer came in with his limit and has for the last three weeks. Some of Jimmys kin came down from Thompson, Ga., and Danny Sellars took them out on Saturday and Sunday. He had four girls and they got their limit each day using shrimp and the Gulp. Frank Cox, a long time customer of Shell Island has been catching lots of cobia and brought in three over the last week. Mary Jackson from Havana told her husband Eddie that what she wanted for Mothers Day was for him to get their boat running and to take their 4year-old son Caden and 8-year-old son Landen to the St. Marks River and go “ shing. Well, he got it running and they ran out to the mouth of the St. Marks River and the boys caught three trout, a ” ounder and lots of cat“ sh and pin“ sh. Mary said the boys had so much fun because there was action from the time they started “ shing. This is one Mothers Day Mary wont forget for a long while. On Saturday, I took Judy Grif“ n and her friend Laura, both nurses from Tallahassee, and we got our limit of nice trout. Judy caught a 19 inch trout on her “ rst cast and also had one about 22 inches long later in the day. She had never caught a red so we tried for them and the only thing I could “ nd were small ones. She can now say she has caught reds, even though they were small. The Big Bend Saltwater Classic will be June 17-19, over Fathers Day Weekend. Held at the Carrabelle Boat Club, this is the largest tournament of the year and is both inshore and offshore with proceeds going to support O.A.R.(Organization of Arti“ cial Reefs), which makes arti“ cial reefs in the area for “ shing offshore. On Aug. 6-7, the eighth annual C-Quarters King“ sh Shootout will be held in Carrabelle with “ rst place king taking home $10,000.

JODY CAMPBELL Weathers great and “ sh are bitingSpecial to The NewsExtreme dryness continues to be a critical problem in our area of North Florida. Daily, the drought index is increasing under the in” uence of high temperatures and the absence of signi“ cant rainfall. These factors all combine to make our area ripe for wild“ re. Currently, South Georgia is experiencing a dramatic increase in wild“ re activity under these very same conditions. The Florida Division of Forestry encourages the public to exercise extreme caution in the use of “ re outdoors during this time. Outdoor cookouts require someone to be tending the grill at all times until the coals are dead-out. Coals must be disposed of in a concealed container and not on the ground. ATVs, trucks and cars should not be parked in tall grasses where heat transferred from the exhaust pipe or catalytic converter can cause a “ re. All camp“ res should be extinguished using the water and stir method until the camp“ re is dead-out. Acreage and pile burning is risky under present conditions. Postponement for a time when weather conditions are more favorable is encouraged. If you must burn, stay with your pile or acreage burn at all times, have a dedicated water source present at all times and carry the phone number for your local Division of Forestry of“ ce, (850) 488-1871, in the event that suppression action is required. North Floridians, playing it safe is key under the current weather conditions. Be cautious outdoors and help prevent wild“ res from occurring in our area. For more information please contact Todd W. Schroeder with the Florida Division of Forestry at (850) 4141138.

Festivities begin at 7 a.m. at the Port Panacea Marina and continue later in the day at Woolley Park in Panacea. Sheriff David Harvey and the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce have helped organize the event for several years. This is a great opportunity for boys and girls to learn something about the sport of “ shing and enjoy an activity that may become a lifelong hobby,Ž said Sheriff Harvey. Fishing is something that people can enjoy well into their retirement years.Ž The last tournament ” eet boat will leave Port Panacea Marina at 8:30 a.m. and the weigh-in at Woolley Park will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided to all participants at Woolley Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Youth not going out on a family boat or with one of the ” eet of volunteer captains may “ sh from any safe location and bring their catch to Woolley Park. The fresh water divisions include bass, pan “ sh and cat“ sh. The saltwater categories include white trout, speckled trout, Spanish mackerel, red“ sh, ” ounder and whiting. No grouper, snapper, amberjack, sharks, rays, hard head or sail cat“ sh will be considered. All anglers will receive a tournament T-shirt at the registration table. Parents or guardians of children must sign a release form before children board a tournament vessel. Children age 5 to 8 must be accompanied by one parent or guardian and they must wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket. Youth will not only receive a T-shirt and lunch, but an opportunity to participate in games and win trophies as well. Prizes will be given away including “ shing poles and tackle boxes. The grand prize is a trip to Sea World for a family of four that includes some spending money. As is true with so many volunteer events, organizers are looking for sponsors. A contribution of $75 or more will help ensure the success of the tournament and the name of the individual or business making the donation will appear on the back of the T-shirt. The tournament may be cancelled due to poor weather. All donations to support the tournament will be welcomed. Donations may be made to Wakulla Childrens Fishing Tournament, P.O. Box 349, Panacea FL 32346-0349.

This is a time we use to go over new ideas and talk about things so we dont have really long business meetings. Following, all the members were invited to have a uniform inspection before the start of our general meeting. It has been said that you never get a second chance to make a good “ rst impression and this is especially true when we are representing the U.S. Coast Guard. Often times, those not familiar with the auxiliary as a volunteer organization af“ liated with the active duty see auxiliarists as active duty. In that light, we strive to put our best foot forward at all times. Our former Director of the Auxiliary, Capt. Montgomery, was known to carry a pair of scissors in his pocket and would cut a crew neck undershirt into a V-neck undershirt if worn improperly. He would also have dollar bills handy to send you to go get a proper shirt after his alteration. That just goes to show how we are held to a high standard! Thankfully we also had BM1 Hank Diatrich, from the Seahawk stationed in Carrabelle with us so he could offer insight. During the business meeting, several exciting events were discussed. National Safe Boating week is up and coming the week of May 21. To kick things off in our neck of the woods, Flotilla 12 will be hosting a ramp day for free vessel safety checks not only on May 14 but also on May 21 at the public boat ramp at Fort St. Marks. We are also working hard to coordinate with the second Annual Ready, Set, In” ate world record attempt, which will be held on Saturday, May 21, at the start of National Safe Boating Week. For more information you can visit the website at: http://www.readysetin” ate.com/usa/. This event is designed to increase awareness on the importance of life jackets and promote their use. Details to come if we are able to make it happen in our area on the 21st! As I already mentioned, we had the pleasure of having BM1 Hank Diatrich from the Seahawk join us for the meeting. He discussed the happenings of the Seahawk and how the auxiliary can continue to support the active duty and offer services to the crew. Terry Donohue discussed the progress of the St. George Island Detachment. They are continuing to grow and are now up to 12 full members and have four in the process. The SGI Deachment continues to participate in public events to increase awareness of their presence in the area. We try to end meetings on high note, and awards are always special. This month for Flotilla 12, John Denmark received an award for his cumulative hours of service. Tim Ashley received his meritorious team commendation for the FSU Flyover and his 10 years of service in the Auxiliary. Every five years of service, an award is received. Tim is one of our longest time members of Flotilla 12. Many of you may be wondering how Flotilla 13 is doing -as well as Sherrie. Flotilla 13 continues to work hard to keep a strong presence in the Shell Point area, and anyone interested in helping them should contact John Sykes. Sherrie is continuing to recover and sends her regrets for not being able to write the column for such a long while. In the spirit of National Safe Boating Week, remember Sherries parting words of wisdom: … Safe Boating is NO Accident.Ž SPECIAL TO THE NEWSBM1 Hank Diatrich and Ray Willis chatting.

THE CABINET SHOPTHECABINET SHOP Custom Kitchens&Counter Tops Is it better to buy new or repair old equipment? Customers bring in the wackiest equipment. Some acknowledge that the 40-year-old regulator is a museum piece and they just want to show it off, or see if it still works. But there are those who still want to use these antique regulators. Lets do a comparison between a used regulator that is in moderately good shape and a new regulator over a “ ve year period. A complete regulator (no computer) costs $800 new. This includes the shop assembly and free parts for life for many mainstream brands of regulators. A used complete regulator (no computer) on eBay is $100, no free parts. Right away, the price gap to “ ll is $700. The regulator from eBay will need to be serviced. This is life support equipment and should be serviced every year. The average regulator rebuild for a complete regulator is $110 labor, plus cost of service kits at $45. The total cost of this rebuild is $155 plus tax. The total cost of an eBay regulator is a minimum of $265.85 right out the gate. Many manufactures have pushed the repair schedule for new regulators from every year to every two years, meaning that for the next two years, your new regulator will not need any service if it is well maintained. This cannot be said for all older regulators … the used titan will still need annual service incurring the $165.85 annual rebuild with additional costs should anything additional need replacing. Five years maintenance of the new regulator only costs $235, the eBay regulator costs $829.25. When the total cost of each regulator from “ rst purchase to the “ ve year limit is tallied, a new regulator costs $1,035 and a used regulator costs $1095.10. A total savings of $60 over “ ve years. If you want to save a few dollars, going used can sometimes be cost effective. But with all of the manufacturer incentives to buy new, it can be well worth your while to spend your time at your local dive shop rather than sur“ ng eBay. Delicate. Defenseless. Endangered.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comCourt shortsBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA Crawfordville woman “ led a small claims lawsuit after her dog was mauled by a pit bulldog while walking in her neighborhood. According to a complaint “ led in small claims court on Friday, May 6, Janette Wagner was walking her two dogs with a friend on April 9 when a pit bull came across a “ eld and attacked her miniature schnauzer. The small claims lawsuit was filed against Brianna Miley, who reportedly owns the pit bull, named Tara. The 18-pound female schnauzer suffered severe injuries in the attack, and has accumulated more than $3,600 in veterinary bills as a result. The complaint states that the dog, Sam, belongs to Wagners daughter, who has cerebral palsy. Six years ago, when the girl was in second grade, she had surgery on her hip and was in a body cast for eight weeks … and got to pick out the puppy as a reward for enduring the surgery with a positive attitude. Though she wasnt present at the dog attack, Wagners daughter is now fearful of being in her wheelchair in the neighborhood, the complaint states. It claims that the daughter no longer wants to do her usual exercise of wheeling herself around the neighborhood while she times herself because shes afraid. In other court matters: € The woman who claimed to have been the victim of a sexual battery by a state trooper has “ led a civil lawsuit against the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles seeking unspeci“ ed damages for the alleged incident. Former state trooper Charlie Odom, who lost his job over the matter, was found not guilty of charges of sexual battery by a law enforcement of“ cer several months ago. A trial a year earlier resulted in a mistrial after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict. The woman claimed that Odom stopped her for speeding on Shadeville Highway. Her license was suspended and she admitted to having an alcoholic drink before she got behind the wheel … but she was written no tickets. She claimed it was because Odom fondled her and took pictures of her topless. Odom denied the allegations of inappropriate behavior, though he did not take the stand to testify at either trial. The defense was mostly focused on casting doubt on the testimony and credibility of the accuser. The lawsuit against the state, “ led in late March, claims DHSMV was negligent in hiring Odom. The response by the state, “ led April 28, seeks to have the lawsuit dismissed. € A woman was found guilty last week of felony ” eeing and eluding, sale of a controlled substance, possession with intent to sale, plus misdemeanor charges of aggravated assault … a lesser charge of the felony aggravated assault on a law enforcement of“ cer she was originally charged with … and resisting arrest without violence and driving with a suspended license. After an all-day trial on Tuesday, May 3, the jury was out two hours before returning the verdict against Shamaka Costin, 31. The charges stemmed from a March 2009 drug deal at Panacea RV Park in which Costin, who is from Tallahassee, had allegedly sold $300 worth of cocaine to an undercover of“ cer. When deputies attempted to arrest her, she ” ed in her car and a high-speed chase ensued. The police report indicates she was captured, along with two passengers in her car, when she tried to duck pursuing of“ cers by pulling into a driveway. Costin still faces additional charges from a full body search at the Wakulla County Jail that turned up cocaine and cash she had stuffed in her body. What had been the subject of numerous motion hearings wasnt even mentioned at the trial … a contention by the defense that Costin had been Tasered by deputies the night of her arrest. Deputies denied Tasering Costin. But Assistant Public Defender Edrene Johnson told the court last month that there was evidence in the equipment used to monitor when deputies deploy their Tasers that two deputies weapons had been used that night. All of that ultimately came to nothing, especially with Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls contention that … whether Costin was Tasered or not … it wasnt a defense to a drug dealing charges. Costins case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Angelique Knox. Other recent criminal trials have included the cases of Clyde Hamilton, who was found not guilty of lewd and lascivious assault on two young girls in a jury trial on April 20. After the verdict, some jurors indicated they felt the state hadnt proven a case against Hamilton. One of the main concerns expressed was that the two alleged victims in the case, now 13 and 16, werent believeable in their testimony. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno. Hamilton was represented by Crawfordville lawyer Richard Reno. The next day, April 21, a jury found Francisco Alicia guilty of sexual battery on a child and he was sentenced to life in prison without parole. That case was also prosecuted by Vollrath-Bueno. Alicia was represented by Tallahassee attorney Ethan Way. Try Coworking!

State legislature slashes schools budgets by 8 percentBy LILLY ROCKWELLTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 8 … Florida lawmakers approved an education budget in the “ nal hours of the legislative session that slashed money that pays for schools by nearly 8 percent, cutting funding by $542 per student. Budget writers say they were left with few choices but to slash spending when faced with a $3.75 billion budget hole, and said they tried to shield education from the more severe cuts that hit other areas, such as prisons. Public schools are now left to “ gure out how to close multi-million budget gaps, with many crafting plans to lay off hundreds of employees, and cutting school services like extracurricular programs. This years budget was particularly harsh for public schools because it comes on top of years of falling property tax revenue, drops in enrollment and cuts or at least stagnation in what the Legislature sends to schools. If you look at the budget were coming out with, it could be a lot worse,Ž said Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee. Lawmakers in charge of the education budget initially braced for more severe 15 percent cuts. But Montford explained that schools will have a hard time coping with even a very slight cut. If this were the “ rst year, (schools) could absorb it,Ž said Montford, a former school superintendent. Weve been absorbing these cuts now for “ ve years.Ž Already, school districts have drafted spending plans that include layoffs and salary cuts, furloughs, cuts to after-school programs and school bus transportation. The Miami Herald reported that the MiamiDade school district, for instance, is considering teacher layoffs for the “ rst time and salary cuts to guidance counselors and maintenance workers to help close its budget hole that is estimated at more than $100 million. Its not cutting fat, its cutting into bone now,Ž said Ron Meyer, a lobbyist for the Florida Education Association. He also found it troubling that school funding is cut while voucher programs that divert state funds to private schools are being expanded. Advocates for public schools say at the same time their funding is cut, schools are being asked to do more, such as institute new testing requirements as part of the new teacher merit pay law. We have cut so many people out of the central office, at the same time you are adding more and more requirements,Ž Montford said. Who is going to do it? Literally, who will do it?Ž Republican lawmakers who helped craft the education budget, which cuts money for schools by $1.35 billion, say the money schools are losing will be partially offset by savings from requiring teachers and other school employees to contribute 3 percent toward their retirements and from federal stimulus dollars saved by districts from last year. But school districts have used those federal stimulus dollars unevenly. Some districts spent it at the federal governments urging, others spent some of it, and still other districts socked away most of it for next “ scal year. Florida School Boards Association Executive Director Wayne Blanton doesnt look favorably upon the changes to the Florida Retirement System that some lawmakers say is a savingsŽ for schools in the budget. The way Blanton looks at it, the state is requiring school employees to use their own salaries to plug gaps in the budget, though he said he realizes without the changes to the retirement system we would have been even more in the hole.Ž Blanton said he would have preferred the Legislature look for other sources to plug the budget shortfall, such as a new Internet sales tax rather than look to the school employees themselves. Meyer, the lobbyist for the Florida Education Association, said beyond the cuts to education, schools and teachers have been hit hard by changes to how they will be paid and awarded contracts as well as policies that funnel more kids into private schools. The super-majority of Republicans have been like kids in a candy store,Ž Meyer said. Theyve just seen an opportunity here to do whatever they have been wanting to try in the past but hasnt gotten through.ŽFlorida home sales up in “ rst quarterBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 10 … Bargain pricing and the sparks of recovery combined to boost existing housing sales in the “ rst quarter 2011, according to statistics from Florida Realtors that show a 13 percent increase in sales from the same period last year. Sales of existing homes through March totaled 44,531 homes statewide, with 17 of 19 Florida municipalities showing sales gains year to year. Condominium sales were even stronger, with the number of sales jumping 29 percent for the quarter ending March 31. Condo prices rose in all but one statistical region. Sales were boosted in part by soft home prices. The median price of a home sold during the quarter was $123,600, down 6 percent from the $131,100 posted for the same three-month period last year. Condo prices fell 16 percent to $80,700. The median price “ gures continue to reflect the sale of distressed properties, which pull the “ gure lower than would be re” ected in the sales of non-distressed homes. Florida Realtors “ rst quarter report shows sales picking up signi“ cant momentum after decelerating in the fourth quarter of last year, though prices are continuing to slip,Ž said Sean Snaith, director of the University of Central Floridas Institute for Economic Competitiveness. The labor market recovery is just starting to blossom … once it is in full bloom it will provide some needed curb appeal for Floridas struggling housing market by creating a new pool of quali“ ed buyers and preventing other homeowners from falling victim to foreclosure,Ž he said. Nationally, existinghome sales, including single-family and condo, were off 0.8 percent from a 5.18 million pace during the same period in 2010, the National Association of Realtors reported Tuesday. The national median price of a single family home fell 4.6 percent to $158,700 compared to a year ago. Distressed homes accounted for 39 percent of all sales. The reading of quarterly price data can be volatile because they are based on the types of homes that are sold during the quarter,Ž NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun said in a statement. When buyers principally purchase distressed properties in a given market, the recorded prices will be very low, which is what were seeing now in much of the country,Ž said Yun. In Florida, Miami led the state as sales increased by 47 percent year-to-year. Home sales in Melbourne were up 42 percent while sales in Tallahassee rose 20 percent. Other strong markets included West Palm Beach (up 33 percent), Fort Walton Beach (up 19 percent) and Tampa (up 17 percent.) Sales woes continue for Southwest Florida and along the Treasure Coast, two focal points on states building boom gone bust. Year-to-year sales slipped 14 percent in Fort Pierce and falling 4 percent in Fort Myers. Distressed properties are proving to be an ongoing complication in the healing process of Floridas housing market,Ž Snaith said. The foreclosure moratorium and Floridas overburdened court system have slowed the process of handling foreclosures,Ž said Snaith. Until these properties can move through this process, complete recovery will be dif“ cult to attain.Ž Floridas sales “ gures compared well to other Southern states, In the South, existing-home sales increased in the “ rst quarter to an annual rate of 1.96 million and are 2.8 percent higher than the “ rst quarter of 2010. The median existing single-family home price in the South slipped 0.6 percent to $141,800 in the “ rst quarter from a year earlier.

Juveniles caught stealing sheri s lawnmowerSpecial to The NewsTwo juveniles were caught trying to steal Wakulla County Sheriff David Harveys riding lawnmower last week. The mower was being used by a work crew to cut grass at some property owned by the sheriff in Medart on Friday, May 6, according to WCSO Public Information Of“ cer Keith Blackmar. A work crew was cutting grass at residential property when they stopped to use blower equipment.

THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 Section B Green SceneEARTH TALK.... Page 3B HEALTH & FITNESS.... Page 4BLast week I had the privilege of being a part of Medart Elementary Schools annual Project Learning Tree. Each year the student curriculum is enhanced by bringing speakers from the Big Bend area into the classroom to expand the worldŽ as it exists for young people. I was one of a number of speakers who presented their session eight times to reach the students in a small session. The theme that the school chose this year was Wondrous Wakulla. I shared the day with people talking on preservation of our coastlines, forests, nutrition and so on. Of course when I was asked and heard the theme I jumped at the opportunity to talk about Wondrous Wakulla through the eyes of the trash that accumulates in the ditches all over the county. I brought two interns from the Department of Education with me to cover the nutrition aspect of my work. I took the children on a make-believe trip to Shell Point in my revved up pickup truck. All along the way I threw trash out of my make-believe window aiming for the ditch or the bed of my pickup. By the time we arrived at the beach, my car was empty of trash with very few things ending up on the truck bed. A very meaningful discussion followed as I asked the students to tell me what the make-believe Shelley was thinking as she trashed Wakulla County on her way south. Although the students could not believe I would do such a thing as litter and felt I really was a bad citizen, I know that some of them have done the same or watched their parents do so. I had created a time line on the ” oor with numbers of years and asked the students to place the trash on the time line to indicate their estimate for how long each item will remain in the ditch or even in the land“ ll. The students were so surprised to learn that a plastic bottle will remain for 1,000 years, an aluminum can 500 years, and a disposable diaper for 1,000 years. I then asked them to consider three things that they could do to make Wakulla County even more wondrous. If they could adopt the concepts offered and seriously change their behavior, they were to sign a pledge of commitment. I want to share the results. I asked them to consider the following: Continued on Page 3B Making a pledge for Wondrous Wakulla By SHELLEY SWENSONWakulla Extension ServiceGREEN LIVING By LYNN ARTZCounty Commissoner Pamela Joy, Chair of the Wakulla Recycling Task Force, believes that the county should lead by example. So, after con“ rming that little was being recycled in most county of“ ces, she has been setting up recycling stations in one county of“ ce after another. Ms. Joy began with the Planning Of“ ce (where she works), then quickly moved on to the County Administration Building and the Property Appraisers Of“ ce. No money for recycling bins and barrels? No problem. Ms. Joy simply lines empty copy paper boxes with plastic and labels them with colorful signs. In addition to a box to collect paper, Ms. Joy creates boxes to collect aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and cardboard. Arranged together, the four boxes form a recycling station for each of“ ce. County employees have responded positively. Many have begun tossing their recyclables into the boxes instead of trash cans. Providing opportunities for collecting recyclables is just the “ rst step, however. The recycling boxes have to be emptied and the recyclables transported elsewhere by someone. So Ms. Joy enlisted the help of facilities management staff. Employees John Gerhardt and Larry Thompson now pick up the recyclables when picking up trash from these same of“ ce buildings. They say it is easy for them to transport both types of waste without any extra trips. All it took was the addition of a multi-bin recycling container to the location where they transport the trash. Buoyed by her success, Ms. Joy is ready to move on to another county of“ ce building. Shes got her eye on the Supervisor of Elections Of“ ce. There seems to be no stopping this recycling dynamo.Recycling is on the increase in county o ces LEADING BY EXAMPLE: Pamela Joy, chair of the county recycling task force, left, has set up recycling stations in county of“ ces.

By SCOTT JOYNER WCPL DirectorOnce again our great patrons have helped us out and saved the State Aid to Libraries program. For the third year in a row, the immense response that the Legislature received from library supporters from across the state showed how important the citizens of Florida consider their public libraries. With this funding, our childrens and summer programs and free computer instruction will continue, as well as our potential of offering e-book service to our nearly 16,000 registered patrons beginning next “ scal year. We will also strive to provide the most current books, “ lms, and other materials that our patrons so rightfully demand, in addition to access to the Internet for all who need to apply for government help, job hunt, study for school, or simply keep in touch with friends and family. Again thank you for your continued support and we encourage everyone to stop by and see what the library has to offer. Friday Night Movie On Friday, May 13, we are offering the blockbuster seventh “ lm in the Harry Potter series.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 – Page 3BGreen Scene Whats the future of cars with hydrogen fuel cells?Dear EarthTalk: Not long ago we were reading a lot about hydrogens role in a clean energy future, with cars transitioning from gasoline-powered engines to hydrogenpowered fuel cells. Where does hydrogen fit now in the mix with electric cars now coming on so strong? … Amanda Jenkins, Troy, Mich.It is true that just a few years ago everyone was talking hydrogen fuel cells as the future of petroleumfree automotive transport. Fuel cell cars can run on infinitely renewable hydrogen gas and emit no harmful tailpipe emissions whatsoever. A 2005 Scienti“ c American article bullishly reported that car company executives foresee no better option to the hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle in the long run.Ž Likewise, the International Energy Agency suggested, also in 2005, that some 30 percent of the global stock of vehicles „ 700 million cars and trucks „could be powered by hydrogen fuel cells by 2050. But high development costs and implementation hurdles have kept fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) out of the mainstream for now. And in the face of competition from a new crop of all-electric and hybrid-electric vehicles lately, some analysts wonder whether the fuel cells future is as bright as once thought. Thats not to say the technology isnt impressive, and still potentially very promising. The concept was first developed by NASA some “ ve decades ago for use in space travel and has since been implemented in a wide range of other mobile and stationary power applications. In an FCV, a stack of fuel cells under the hood converts hydrogen stored on-board with oxygen in the air to make electricity that propels the drive train. While automakers have been able to make fuel cells small enough to “ t in and power a conventional size car or truck, the price per unit is high due to the need to incorporate expensive, cutting edge components. And the lack of widespread demand precludes cost-saving mass production. Also, the lack of hydrogen refueling stations around the country limits the practicality of driving a fuel cell vehicle. According to Richard Gilbert, co-author of the book, Transport Revolutions: Moving People and Freight without Oil, another big issue for hydrogen-powered fuel cells is their energy inef“ ciency. Creating hydrogen gas by splitting water molecules via electrolysis ends up using up about half of the energy it creates. Another half of the resulting energy is taken up by the conversion of hydrogen back into electricity within fuel cells. This means that only a quarter of the initially available energy reaches the electric motor,Ž reports Gilbert. Making hydrogen by reforming natural gas is also highly inef“ cient and relies on a fossil fuel from the get-go. Such losses in conversion dont stack up well against, for instance, recharging an electric vehicle (EV) like the Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt from a wall socket „ especially if the electricity can be initially generated from a renewable source like wind or solar. But FCVs arent dead in the water yet. A few dozen Californians are already driving one of Hondas FCX Clarity fuel cell cars. A $600/month lease payment entitles qualifying drivers to not only collision coverage, maintenance and roadside assistance but also hydrogen fuel, available via a handful of fast-“ llŽ hydrogen refueling stations. General Motors is part of an effort to test FCVs and implement a viable hydrogen refueling infrastructure in Hawaii, currently one of the most fossil fuel dependent states in the U.S. The Hawaii Hydrogen Initiative aims to bring upwards of 20 hydrogen refueling stations to Hawaii by 2015. Other efforts are underway in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere. Dear EarthTalk: I heard that timber thefts are increasing across the country. Why would people steal timber and is it a particular kind for a particular use? … Rosie Ng, Stanwood, Wash.People are stealing timber for the same reasons they steal anything: to profit from someone elses hard work. What makes timber thefts that much harder to stop is the fact that, most of the time, they occur in remote forested areas and loggers typically dont have to document their sales as meticulously as other kinds of natural resource extraction. With the economy still in the doldrums, its not surprising that timber thefts appear to be on the rise, at least based on anecdotal evidence from around the country. Timber theft can range from a landowner cutting down a neighbors tree to loggers stealing hundreds or thousands of trees from private or public lands,Ž reports Lori Compas in the September/October 2010 issue of E Magazine. Investigators say its difficult to calculate the exact number of trees lost to theft, but losses are estimated at $3 million over the last “ ve years in Mississippi alone.Ž She cites one example there in which a logger was arrested on three counts of timber theft after clearing some $375,000 worth of trees from land set aside to bene“ t local schools. In some cases, thieves are targeting speci“ c types of rare or expensive wood, such as the distinctively patterned birds-eye maple used in some high-end musical instruments. Since theres no way to tell if the wood inside a maple tree will show the birds-eye pattern without cutting into it, thieves arent scared to damage or potentially kill a tree to “ nd out. Oftentimes other loggers will even tip off local authorities about a rogue member of their industry perpetrating such crimes. Timber thieves who haul their take out of state might also face federal charges for transporting stolen timber across state lines.EarthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E The Environmental Magazine (www.emagazine.com).

I will not throw paper, wrappers, cans, bottles or any other trash from the car window or drop it when walking. 2. I will discuss with my friends and my family how we might set up a system to do more recycling. 3. I will use more things that I can eat from and drink from over and over like a re-usable water bottle or picnic dishes instead of products that are not biodegradable. One hundred and “ fteen youths completed the survey. Of those, 113 committed to the “ rst; 105 committed to the second; and 112 committed to the third.

Page 4B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comHEALTH & FITNESSSpecial to The News A local senior care company has unveiled a new resource for those adult children who live in fear of getting the callŽ that tells them their senior loved one is in trouble. Research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care network has revealed that many grown children dont know all they should about their older adults medical histories. Thats why Home Instead Senior Care has worked with Humana Points of Caregiving to develop a variety of resources to help families be better prepared. The Caring for Your Parents: Senior Emergency Kit is an information management tool, can help family caregivers keep important information at their “ ngertips such as their seniors doctors, pharmacy and insurance company, medications and dosage details as well as allergies. For more information, go to www.SeniorEmergencyKit.com or call your local Home Instead Senior Care of“ ce at 850-297-1897. A survey of future family caregivers conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care network indicates a widespread lack of knowledge including the fact that less than half (47 percent) say they know about their parents medical histories in case of an emergency. Weve seen the turmoil that such an emergency creates and weve also witnessed how much smoother it can go when families are prepared,Ž said Scott Harrell, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care of“ ce serving Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla counties, plus the Panhandle. This resource will provide family caregivers with the tools they need to be ready for the unexpected,Ž he said.Childrens Gardens Open endless pathways, encourage magical places, and draw on a childs natural curiosity with a Childs Garden. What to Buy / Plant Children look closely at the intricate shapes of the origami like ” owers of columbine and bleeding hearts. They “ nd huge sun” owers irresistible, love the texture of fuzzyŽ lambs ears and straw” owers, too. Try sensitive plant, which curls up when touched; show a child how a snapdragon talks, and plant balloon ” owers known as platycodon. Invite butterflies into the garden by planting monarda, pentas, and lantana; plant moonflowers for nighttime fun while attracting sphinx moths. Show children which fragrant plants to crush and smell, like lavender, pineapple mint, lemon balm, and scented geraniums. Edibles Children love small and large vegetables, like grape tomatoes or giant pumpkins. Try plants that come in surprising colors, such as purple green beans and carrots, moon and stars watermelon, and Easter egg radishes. And what child wouldnt like fresh strawberries, blueberries or tiny orange kumquats? Pests Let children know that some insects are bene“ cial, and even destructive bugs are highly interesting. Make homemade bug spray and give them the job of spraying plants. Ingredients include the grated rind of one lemon, one cup lavender, one cup sage, one pint boiling water, and one teaspoon non-detergent soap such as castile or Murphys Oil Soap. In a quart jar, mix lemon and herbs. Pour water and let steep until cooled to room temperature. Drain, reserving the liquid. In a plastic spray-pump bottle, dilute 1/8 cup of the herbal liquid to two cups water and add the teaspoon of soap. For Fun Take your child to the Childrens Shakespeare garden and labyrinth at 1401 High Road in Tallahassee. Teaching riddles and rhymes help to make gardening basics easy to remember. Following is a list of some of the really delightful ones Ive heard. Many vegetables love potato, but keep them away from eggplant and tomato.Ž Lettuce is easy to grow, on average except when competing with sun” ower or cabbage.Ž To plant your carrots, deeply till, but keep them far away from dill.Ž Beets of red should never be planted in a bed with beans of green, nor mustard wed.Ž Onion, garlic, leeks and shallots keep bugs away from carrots, but these bulbs, unseen disagree with its neighbor bean.ŽGardening Guide By NANCY GEORGEChildrens Gardens can inspire kids curiosityLower Back Pain is one of the most common problems we see at the gym. Clients with back pain are apprehensive to work their backs, abs, or legs. I dont blame them one bit. Back pain can stop you in your tracks. When an attack happens, sufferers are not able to move and sometimes some are not able to stand up straight. It is so excruciating to those whose have it, and it can take weeks for them to be back to normal. Back pain sufferers “ nd it hard to work or be mobile and have countless injections, pills, doctor appointments, etc. So if anything that they are going to do at the gym might trigger an episode they avoid it like the plague. What are triggers? Certain ways we move can onset pain, for instance bending at an angle or twisting motion can sometimes bring it on or lifting with the back and not with the knees this too will bring it on. Did you know that your weight is a huge trigger to back pain? Your spine is designed to carry your bodys weight and distribute the loads during rest and activity. When excess weight is carried, the spine is forced to absorb the burden, which can lead to structural compromise and damage, such as injury, sciatica nerve pain, hip, and leg pain. The lower back and lumbar spine are most vulnerable to the effects of obesity. What about exercise? A common misconception, sufferers think that exercise will trigger pain. Not so. A lack of exercise and bodily conditioning leads to poor ” exibility and weak muscles in the back, pelvis, and thighs. This can increase the curve of the lower back, causing the pelvis to tilt too far forward. Along with this your posture weakens, and other regions of the spine (neck) may become painful. There are a lot of things that can help minimize back pain … for example, the best time to start exercising the back is first thing in the morning prior to getting out of bed. Think about what happens at night, your body is in a prolonged position all night which may cause your spine to stiffenŽ up or cause “ xation of the spin. To start a spine healthy day, try a few stretches to help increase ” exibility. Knee to Chest Stretches: This you can do as soon as you wake up in the morning. First, pull one knee to the chest, then the other. Hold each for “ ve seconds. Then pull both knees to the chest at the same time and hold for “ ve to eight seconds. Repeat every two to three minutes for “ fteen minutes. Relax your back as you pull gently. Pelvic Rock Mobilization: Start this mobilization technique on your back with your legs bent. Then gently lift the pubic bone (bottom of the pelvis) upward and progressively lift the pelvis and then the low back while squeezing both buttocks together. Hold for three to “ ve seconds, then gently lower the pelvis back down and continue to roll the back into a slight arch and hold for about three seconds. Speak to your doctor before starting a new exercise program to make sure you are healthy enough for an exercise regimen. Exercise programs can be painstaking to deal with, but its a bigger pain to deal with pain, so why not change your thinking. Stretch and exercise are great remedies!Pamela Chichester, CFT is Body-Take 24 Hour Fitness manager. She can be reached at 926-2348.

www.thewakullanews.comTHE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 12, 2011 – Page 5B Teachers: Please visit TheWakullaNews.com for links to FREE NIE curriculum Into the Wild Abridgment: Chapter TenPreviously, the traveling cats were attacked by a crowd of vicious rats, and Bluestar lost a life. They returned to camp only to hear the sounds of battle. Quick!Ž Bluestar howled. It is as StarClan warned me. Our camp is being attacked!Ž Firepaw charged, his soreness from the battle with the rats forgotten. The battle sounds grew louder, and the stench of ShadowClan “ lled his nostrils. He was right behind Tigerclaw as they dashed into the clearing. They were met with a frenzy of “ ghting, ThunderClan cats battled furiously with ShadowClan warriors. Every corner of the camp seemed alive with “ ghting. The returning cats hurled themselves into battle. Firepaw caught hold of a tabby warrior and sank his teeth deep into her leg. She yowled and turned on him, lunging at his neck with her teeth bared. He managed to pull her down into the dirt, clawing her till she squealed and struggled away, running into the undergrowth surrounding the camp. Firepaw saw a white ShadowClan cat with jet-black paws dragging a ThunderClan elder away from the nursery. Blackfoot! The ShadowClan deputy quickly killed the elder, who had been guarding the kits, and reached into the bramble nest with one massive paw. The kits were squealing, undefended as their mothers wrestled ShadowClan warriors. Firepaw prepared to spring toward the nursery, but a scrawny tortoiseshell leaped on top of him. As he slammed into the ground, he tried to call out that the kits were in danger. Blackfoot had scooped two kits from their bedding and was reaching for a third. Firepaw ” ung the tortoiseshell warrior away. He spun around and plunged his teeth deep into the cats shoulder, sending her howling into the undergrowth. He dashed to the nursery and thrust his head through the entrance. Blackfoot was nowhere to be seen. Inside the nest, crouching over the kits, was Yellowfang, her fur spattered with blood. She looked up with a ferocious hiss, then, realizing it was Firepaw, yowled, Theyre okay. Ill protect them.Ž Brokenstars warning about the ShadowClan rogue ” ashed through Firepaws mind. He would have to trust Yellowfang. He ducked back out of the brambles. There were only a few ShadowClan cats left. Whitestorm and Darkstripe chased the last two out of camp. Firepaw sat, exhausted, and stared. Blood spattered the clearing, and tufts of fur drifted in the dust. The undergrowth was ripped open where invaders had crashed through. The ThunderClan cats gathered beneath Highrock. The queens ran to the nursery to check on their kits. Firepaw waited tensely, relaxing when he heard purrs of joy coming from the bramble nest. Frostfur wove her way through the crowd, followed by Yellowfang. The queen stepped forward. Our kits are safe, thanks to Yellowfang. A ShadowClan warrior was trying to steal them, but Yellowfang fought him off.Ž It was no ordinary ShadowClan warrior,Ž Firepaw put in. It was Blackfoot.Ž The ShadowClan deputy!Ž Bluestar limped forward. Spottedleaf is with Lionheart,Ž she murmured. He was injured. It looks bad.Ž A wail rose from Graypaw and he raced to Lionheart. Spottedleaf stepped back to let the apprentice share tongues for the last time with his mentor. Finally Graypaw sat up and cried, Hes gone!Ž He lay down beside Lionhearts body and rested his head on his paws. The rest of the Clan walked forward to grieve for their beloved deputy. Firepaw joined them. He licked Lionhearts neck and murmured, Thank you for your wisdom. You taught me so much.Ž He sat down beside Graypaw. Bluestar padded up. What am I going to do without you, Lionheart?Ž she whispered. It was the first time Firepaw had seen her look defeated, and a chill ran through him. Tigerclaw brie” y shared tongues with Lionheart. Firepaw waited to hear what words he would share with his friend, but Tigerclaw remained silent. To Firepaws confusion, the dark tabbys eyes seemed “ xed on Ravenpaw, not the fallen deputy. Bluestar hauled herself onto Highrock. The cats began to gather in the clearing below, silent and somber-faced. It is nearly moonhigh,Ž meowed Bluestar. It is once more my duty„much too soon„to name ThunderClans new deputy.Ž Firepaw looked from warrior to warrior. They were looking expectantly at Tigerclaw. Bluestar continued. I say this before Lionhearts body, so his spirit may approve my choice. I have not forgotten how one cat avenged the death of Redtail and brought his body back to us. ThunderClan needs this fearless loyalty now.Ž Bluestar paused. Tigerclaw will be the new deputy of ThunderClan.Ž There was a yowl of approval, the loudest voices belonging to Darkstripe and Longtail. Tigerclaw lifted his chin proudly as he listened to the Clan. He leaped up beside Bluestar. I am honored,Ž he yowled. I never expected to gain such high rank, but I vow to serve you as best I can.Ž He gravely dipped his head and jumped down from Highrock. Firepaw heard Ravenpaw murmur Oh, no!Ž beside him. Ravenpaws head was hanging low. She should never have chosen him!Ž Are you talking about Tigerclaw?Ž Firepaw whispered. Hes wanted to be deputy since he took care of Redtail„Ž Ravenpaw stopped abruptly. Took care of Redtail?Ž Firepaw echoed. What did Ravenpaw know? Was Tigerclaw responsible for Redtails death? Are you telling Firepaw how I protected Redtail?Ž Ravenpaw whipped around, his eyes wide with fear. Tigerclaw loomed over them. Firepaw jumped up. He was saying he wished youd been here to take care of Lionheart as well,Ž he mewed. Tigerclaw stalked away in silence. Ravenpaw started to tremble uncontrollably. Ravenpaw?Ž Firepaw meowed. With his head held low, Ravenpaw slunk back to Graypaw and crouched next to him, pressing his skinny black body next to Graypaws thick fur as if he was suddenly cold. Firepaw looked helplessly at his two friends. He padded over and settled beside them, ready to sit out the night. At dawn, a group of elders took Lionhearts body away to the burial place. Ravenpaw hurried back to the apprentices den. Firepaw followed him slowly. Too exhausted to speak, he settled down for a long sleep.

The suspect in the murders is 24-year-old Andrew Michael Wilson, the father of a 1year-old child who lived in the home. Wilson was arrested in Stewart County, Ga., and was later transported back to Wakulla County, where he is being held without bond on two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. The childs mother, Gabrielle McKenzie, 19, is currently in a Tallahassee hospital where she was being treated with a cut throat. The dead men are John Robert McKenzie, 62, and Patrick Lee Pittman, 24. While an autopsy is pending, the sheriff said the mens injuries are consistent with knife wounds. The child was injured and suffered some bruising in the attack and was found covered in blood by deputies and was inconsolable. The child was released to a family member. The murders took place in a single-wide mobile home on Field Loop Road, in an area off Bloxham Cutoff in Wakulla Station. Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey said evidence indicates it was a premeditated attack: Wilson apparently parked about a quarter-mile from the home and went inside sometime in the early morning hours. Investigators at the scene found a bloodtrail and footprints leading from the home to where they believe Wilson parked his car. Wilsons “ ngers were partially severed in the attack … its not clear if the wound was from a knife or, as some investigators speculated, whether one of the victims may have bitten Wilsons “ ngers. It has been con“ rmed by investigators that it was Pittman who made the 911 call to the sheriffs of“ ce around 3:30 a.m. that brought deputies to the scene. Wilson was identi“ ed as a suspect by Gabrielle McKenzie, who spoke his name, the sheriff said. After issuing a BOLO (Be On the Lookout alert) Wilson was picked up after he wrecked his vehicle in south Georgia. Sheriff Harvey said it is believed Wilson was on his way to Columbus, Ga., where he reportedly has some connections. The sheriff also speculated that the wreck may have been due to blood loss from his hand injuries.
