Special Section inside this edition Please see Page 10B By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIn 2008, when Charlie Creel lost the election for Wakulla County sheriff by 48 votes, he put it down to a learning experience. If he had entered the race earlier, maybe he would have earned the 25 votes needed to win the race, he said. Over the weekend, Creel made it of“ cial: Hes in the race again for 2012. This time, nearly 18 months before the election, hes in … and looking for the 25 votes plus to put him over. Currently working as a traf“ c incident management consultant for the State of Nevada, Creel was back in town for a weekend after two weeks of challenging travel for his job. He met with The Wakulla News to announce his candidacy on Sunday, May 22, opened his campaign account at a local bank the next day and was at a meeting of NAMI Wakulla that night. He got back in town at midnight on Friday night and was up early on Saturday, May 21, to help register runners for the Friends of Wakulla Springs 5K. Hes past president of NAMI Wakulla and president of the Crawfordville Lions Club. Creel began his law enforcement career at age 21 and spent 30 years there, retiring from the Florida Highway Patrol. The sheriffs position is the culmination of reaching the pinnacle of your career,Ž he says of his desire for the elected post. And hes looking forward to campaigning. I got to meet a lot of good people,Ž he says. I enjoy it, in fact.Ž During an interview, Creel says little about incumbent Wakulla Sheriff David Harvey. Asked about Sheriff Harveys potential Achilles heel of the post-election car wreck in which he was charged with a misdemeanor count of leaving the scene of an accident or the collapse of some of the sheriffs business deals, Creel shrugs it off and says hes not going after personal issuesŽ on the campaign trail. Thats not my style,Ž he says. In a prepared release he provides at the interview, there is the hint of one jab at Harvey in Creels pledge to be a fulltime sheriff, with one business interest: providing strong law enforcement.Ž Asked about a potential concern among the current staff of a the sheriffs of“ ce that a Creel election victory means mass “ rings … he removes a slip of paper from his shirt pocket, a reminder placed there for the interview on which hes scrawled: Reassure staff.Ž ŽNobodys going to lose their job,Ž Creel says.

For the past eight years, every early summer, Hess has led the Red-cockaded Woodpecker “ eld trip. He is the right man for the job. Hess knows as much about the species as anyone could, having studied and worked with the birds for almost a quarter of a century. In the early morning, the group huddled around a disheveled forest map hung from the side of Hesss truck as he provided an overview of his work. He answered the question on everyones mind: why the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker? The Apalachicola National Forest is home to the largest population of RCWs in the world. Continued on Page 13A Candidate for sheriff Charlie CreelWILLIAM SNOWDENBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla War Eagles were a step away from the state championship for baseball in 1-4A. Playing at Digital Domain Field in Port St. Lucie on Monday, May 23, the War Eagles led the game, 2-1, until the bottom of the sixth inning. It was there, with two runners on from walks, that the batter for Archbishop McCarthy hit a three-run home run that turned the game. Pitcher Ryan Zimba had 8 walks, no strike-outs and “ ve hits allowed when he was pulled for reliever Jake Walker. But what those numbers didnt show was that Zimba and the War Eagles had, until the bottom of the sixth, had the Mavericks to one run. The Mavericks who won the division last year and were ranked fourth in a national poll by ESPN. It would have been the upset of the year if the War Eagles had somehow managed to pull off the win. The last time a Wakulla baseball team made it as far as this one was 1968, under a team that included pitcher David Harvey, now sheriff, and catcher David Miller, now superintendent of schools. Continued on Page 9A Schools face 9 percent budget cutBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netWakulla district schools will face a 9 percent reduction in state funding next year … down from $34 million this year to $31 million. Its about a $3.1 million cut,Ž said Superintendent of Schools David Miller emphatically. In a phone interview last week, Miller re” ected on the legislatures education budget and its impact on Wakulla. We will maintain the philosophy of trying not to let this touch kids, of not affecting the classroom,Ž Miller said. About 40 percent of the state budget reduction will be made up by requiring employees to make a 3 percent contribution to their retirement. Miller pointedly called it an income tax and said that the state is trying to balance the budget on the backs of employees.Ž Last year, the school board approved a $200 across-the-board raise for employees. It was the only pay raise theyve seen in three years.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netTo honor a man who was the backbone of the volunteer “ re department in Wakulla County for more than 30 years, the county commission renamed the Fire Training Facility the Raymond E. Love Fire Training Grounds. A dedication ceremony was held on May 17. Chief Raymond Love passed away on March 22. He was 82 years old. Love became a “ re“ ghter with the Tallahassee Fire Department in 1951 and retired as district “ re chief in 1985. He was heavily involved in the Wakulla County Volunteer Fire Department, serving as president of the Wakulla County United Firefighters Association and chief of the Ochlockonee Bay Volunteer Fire Department. He ate, slept and breathed the “ re department,Ž Commissioner Mike Stewart said. He was also instrumental in mapping the entire county for the enhanced 911 system, along with his wife, Clara, and daughter, Karen Love Day. He also fought hard to get a training facility for the “ re“ ghters and dedicating the site to him just seemed appropriate. Stewart said, I can remember him beating up the commission about needing a place.Ž He added, It takes people with vision to see a need.Ž Ochlockonee Bay Volunteer Fire Chief Bill Russell said Love dreamed of a training facility for the county. He took point and got this done,Ž Chief Russell said. Chief Allen Harvey, who worked with Love, said Love got the process started for the training facility. He cared about the volunteers. He cared about the “ re service in Wakulla County,Ž Chief Harvey said. To those who worked alongside Love, they describe him as a teacher. Love played a key role in getting “ re“ ghters the training that was necessary. Russell met Love when he was a rookie “ re“ ghter for Tallahassee. The only thing that satis“ ed Chief Love was everything,Ž Russell said. Russell added that Love wanted the “ re“ ghters to know everything about the community, the equipment, etc. His whole life, he taught,Ž Russell said. A large crowd came out to support the Love family and to be a part of the dedication. The family thanked those in the community for their love and support. Karen Love Day told the firefighters in the crowd to stay united. For his sake,Ž Karen Day said. Loves son, Mike Love, said his father started with a vision and volunteered his time to build the foundation for the “ re department. He loved “ re “ ghting,Ž Mike Love said. During his fathers years of service, Mike Love said his father wouldnt have been able to do half of it without the love and support of his mother, Clara. Clara passed away shortly after her husband, Raymond. They were a family unit,Ž Mike Love said. Mike Love said it was nice to see the respect his father had earned over the years. Its somewhat deserving,Ž he said. And that the community recognizes the contributions his father gave to the county. Mike Love said his father told him, It doesnt matter what you have. Its how long after youre gone that people still remember who you were.Ž That says a lot,Ž he said.Fire training facility named in honor of Raymond Love JENNIFER RAYMONDFamily members at the dedication ceremony with the sign honoring longtime Wakulla “ re“ ghter Raymond Love.

Locally, he was president of the Wakulla County United Fire“ ghters Association and chief of the Ochlockonee Bay Volunteer Fire Department. Remembered as a man who ate, slept and breathed the “ re department.Southerland speaks at annual Law DayBy CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewkaullanews.netAt the 19th annual Law Day on Harvey-Young Farm, Congressman Steve Southerland paid tribute to law enforcement. Youre the heroes,Ž Southerland said. He thanked law enforcement of“ cials for sustaining order and ensuring that others can enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.Ž Southerland attributed his appreciation of law enforcement to his upraising. Living in the upstairs of his familys small business, Southerland learned the values of hard work, honesty, and service … values that law enforcement live by as well, he said. Southerland apologized to law enforcement for taking them for granted, and noted that when decisions are made in Congress, Oftentimes were cutting to those who cannot afford to be cutƒWe must do better.Ž Southerland asked law enforcement to hold him accountable as a representative. Southerland thanked the crowd for being engaged in politics and civic life, and reminded them to Always be vigilant.Ž Southerland also paid tribute to his entire district saying, We live in Gods country. There is nothing in Washington, D.C. that can compare to this. Nothing.Ž Southerland ended by saying his prayer is that Congress can help law enforcement as much as law enforcement helps him. Sheriff David Harvey estimated that there were 700 present at the event. Harvey noted that it is very importantŽ to recognize all the different components of the criminal justice system … deputies, dispatchers, corrections of“ cers and even regular citizens, which is the purpose of Law Day. Notable persons in attendance included circuit judges Angela Dempsey, Jackie Fulford, Jimmy Hankinson and Frank Shef“ eld, Jefferson County judge Robert Plaines, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young.

Two women brought a child before the king, claiming it as their own. Wise Solomon asked for a sword, so that he might divide the child in two, giving each woman one-half of the baby. The childs true mother cried out, and begged the king not to cut her baby in two. King Solomon knew that the childs true mother would care more for her childs life than for her pride, and so he gave the child to the “ rst woman. A parallel to this story is unfolding before us now. Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park is in serious “ nancial trouble. The lodge is on the verge of closing, and the overall outlook is dim. Additional revenues could save this baby,Ž but the one group willing to step in, with wallets in hand, is turned away at every attempt. Some folks claiming to care deeply for the park would rather lose the park than share it with scuba divers. I know that scuba divers are an unruly bunch, rolling into town and taking up hotel space, eating at all the restaurants in the area, gassing up their vehicles and cleaning up after themselves, theyre almost as bad as those outlaw trail hikers and horseback riders. The truth is, that most cave divers in Florida are middle-aged married men with bachelors degrees and average salaries of just over $100,000 a year. Cave divers have deep pockets, disposable income, and they want to dive Wakulla Spring. They do so successfully at other state and county parks across Florida, and they are well known among park of“ cials as responsible and safety minded. Wakulla Spring Park cant afford to turn away cave divers, and Wakulla merchants can only benefit from divers coming into the area and patronizing their businesses. The excuses for excluding divers from Wakulla Spring are outdated and frankly, uninformed. Divers do not kill manatees or themselves, harass swimmers, or disable tour boats. In fact, the scuba diving community has shared beaches, reefs, rivers and springs for decades with boaters, swimmers, and even manatees all across the state of Florida. The director of Park Services, Donald Forgione, expresses his thanks and admiration for the cave diving communitys contribution at Wes Skiles Peacock Springs Park, amongst others. Without the divers efforts, that park would have had to be closed on several occasions. Numerous gazebos, steps and walks are “ nanced and built by divers. It is this diving group that organizes clean-ups inside and around the park and other sites to remove traces left by other, non-diving visitors. It is only at Wakulla that any efforts of the community to resolve the situation in a civilized manner have been either ignored or undermined, in spite of the local Wakulla County Dive Clubs efforts to improve and preserve the area. The parks management handbook has us believe that diving at the park is already possible at Emerald Sink, which is one of the arguments against opening the main spring. In order to support the park, the dive community invested a significant amount of time and money into building the steps and platform at Emerald at no cost to the state or the park. At the last minute, these divers were told that the rules had changed, and that only the most elite of technical divers would be allowed to dive there under great limitations, and only then, after submitting an application to private interests, and receiving permission from those entities. At Jackson Blue in Marianna, the “ nancial contribution made by divers has generated a bonus income to the park in excess of $100,000, and created over 30 jobs, and revenue for the area in excess of $1.72 million. All this is a plus to the site, while the physical presence of divers is hardly noticeable. Another study performed recently on Wakulla Springs by a leading economist suggests a much higher potential here. As it stands today, we have reason to believe that private individuals pay thousands of dollars merely for their chance to dive Wakulla, today, under the cloak of science. Obviously this money bene“ ts neither the park nor the community. Opening the main spring in Wakulla to diving will bring the whole trail to the attention of the international diver, with no more than two hours drive time between support stations and world-class sites. Of all the international areas available for the diver, Florida has the best and most advanced infrastructure. Without Wakulla, there are merely dots on the map. My personal view is very simple: The main spring in Wakulla will be opened to the diving public. It is the right thing to do, any other position violates the constitutional principle of equal access, and is economically disastrous to the park, as well as the surrounding community. The good people of Wakulla County should be outraged over being forced to burden the multi-million dollar price tag that comes with this exclusivity and the implemented practices by public servants over a public resource. The diving community has time and again demonstrated that it does not negatively impact the resource but instead works to preserve it. They have safely managed sites more complicated than Wakulla but with similar depths, and therefore have a right to equal access. We, the cave diving community, are committed to working with the Division of Recreation and Parks to “ nd compromises that allow our members lawful access, without detracting from the experience of others. Those who oppose opening the spring seem to have the atttitude: Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two.Ž Wakulla Springs is renowned for its unique boat tours that have been offered since the mid 1800s. Dining or spending the night in the historic lodge or taking a plunge in the massive spring are other unique opportunities offered. It is a travel destination for both locals and those who come from afar and who contribute signi“ cantly to the local economy. In todays tough economic times, ideas are often touted as good for the local economy. But in some cases new activities can have a signi“ cant impact on existing activities. It has been suggested by a few that Wakulla Springs be opened to recreational diving. Opportunities to dive are currently provided at Cherokee and Emerald Sink, two areas managed by the park staff. There are numerous good reasons that Wakulla Springs has always been closed to recreational diving. One primary reason is safety. Florida Geological Survey (FGS) Bulletin 66 reports that the Wakulla Springs Basin is 185 feet deep. The spring basin in the 10 state parks that allow diving ranges from 18 to 61 feet deep. The depth of the massive cave system at Wakulla Springs is 300 feet deep and miles long which is signi“ cantly greater than other state park cave systems. The most current diving accident/fatality report indicates depth as the most signi“ cant factor in fatalities among certi“ ed-trained cave divers. One might contend that it is the divers responsibility to dive within his or her limits and is not the responsibility of the Florida Park Service to prevent park visitors from engaging in dangerous activities. However, there is a responsibility to those who manage public lands to balance the bene“ t and risk associated with a proposed activity. In this particular case the risks far outweigh the bene“ t gained. State parks do not charge a fee to dive so it would not result in increased park revenue. In fact, recreational diving could actually reduce revenues. Generations of families have grown up riding the tour boats and the park has been voted as the best place to bring an out of town guest.Ž The boat tours generate almost a half million dollars annually and provide educational and entertaining experiences to an average of 80,000 people each year. All or part of two types of tours (river boat and glassbottom) operate over the spring basin. Florida law states that a person operating a vessel make a reasonable effort to remain at least 100 feet from a diver. The size of the spring basin would require that the tour route be drastically reduced when divers were in the water. This would diminish the tour and might keep people from returning. Furthermore, it could possibly be a violation of Florida Statute. During the peak summer months thousands of people come to Wakulla Springs to take a plunge off the dive tower and swim in the spring water. During the months on May through August nearly $150,000 is generated on park admission fees with a large number of those folks coming to swim. When a swimmer is in distress or has to be rescued, the swimming area is cleared until the issue is resolved. The time period is usually minimal. When a diver is in distress the period of time to resolve the issue will be greater. During this time period the swimming area would be closed, reducing the recreational opportunity for hundreds of park visitors and resulting in lost revenue for the park. So think about these scenarios. You have planned a picnic or cookout (birthday party, reunion, company or church party) during the hot summer months at Wakulla Springs. This is an annual tradition for many that goes back generations. It is a safe and family friendly place for your gathering. You discover the swimming area has been closed due to an unfortunate accident involving a diver. Due to the depth and complexity of the cave it could take multiple days for the recovery effort. Unfortunately, the reality is that the extreme conditions of the Wakulla Springs cave system will result in someone losing their life in a diving accident should it be open to recreational diving. Another scenario is that you have company from out of town and you want them to see one of the worlds largest and deepest springs so you bring them to Wakulla Springs. You choose to go on the Riverboat ride or as many call it the Jungle Cruise. You ooh and ahh over the wildlife observed but the tour boat does not go over the spring basin as you anticipated. There is a group of divers in the basin and the Park Ranger advises that by law he must keep his distance from the divers. Your friends do not get to experience gliding over the spring basin which looks like a large emerald bowl “ lled with large “ sh. For 16 years I had the pleasure of serving as the park manager for Wakulla Springs. During my tenure our staff made every reasonable attempt to accommodate requests from park visitors, often times resulting in additional workload for the staff. Our staff had a reputation of going above and beyond the call of dutyŽ to ensure each guest had a memorable visit to the park. I felt then and continue to feel strongly that recreational cave diving is an incompatible activity within the spring basin of Wakulla Springs. If you feel as I do please contact DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard at (850) 2452011 or by email at herschel.vinyard@ dep.state.” .us.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 – Page 5ABy JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netIn light of the $1 million decrease anticipated for the next “ scal year for property values, the county commission is discussing the possibility of raising taxes. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said a 5 percent reduction in all departments budgets has been directed already. A million dollars that falls out underneath you,Ž Barden said. Thats a challenge.Ž Commissioner Randy Merritt said he would like to see the county spread out its revenue base instead of relying solely on property tax. Weve got to build our reserve back,Ž Merritt said. Over the last several years, the county has dipped into its reserve funds because of a decrease in revenue. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the county could set the Public Service Tax at 3 or 5 percent. It goes to something,Ž Stewart said. We cant rely on ad valorem taxes anymore.Ž Commissioner Jerry Moore said he didnt want to change anything or raise taxes until all departments budgets for next year have been received. He added that he wouldnt be happy increasing anyones taxes until the county administration reduces the number of employees it has. We have almost the same number of people we had in good times,Ž Moore said. Stewart said the county has decreased the number of employees. Commissioner Alan Brock suggested the staff bring back how many positions have been cut since 2007. We have vacant positions in most of our of“ ces,Ž Brock said. Merritt was hoping with cuts and possibly raising the Public Service Tax, they could lower the millage rate. Id be excited if we got down to 8 mills,Ž Brock said. Barden said he could bring back a couple options for the board to consider. Commissioner Lynn Artz agreed that the county needed to diversify. Several of the constitutional officers were on hand and discussed ways they have already cut their budgets. Barden said the county is going to have to do twofold, cut and be able to put money in reserves. Stewart said the budget needs to be reduced by 10 percent. Were all going to be hurting once this process is over,Ž Stewart said. Moore said he is worried about paying the bills, not building up the reserves. I dont want to go to the taxpayersŽ to build reserves, Moore said. Artz said they are concerned about the bad audit report that is coming because of not having a reserve. Were trying to prevent bad things,Ž Artz said. By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netThe County Commission met at a May 5 workshop to discuss modifying the countys current land development code in regards to new subdivisions and the criteria for accepting ownership and maintenance of roads in those subdivisions. Several months ago, the commission asked County Attorney Heather Encinosa to look at changing the code to require subdivisions to have 90 percent build-out before the roads would be accepted. This was because the county did not want to be responsible for roads that may incur wear and tear due to construction. Currently, the county requires the developer of a subdivision to have a warranty on all paved roads for two years. After two years, the Public Works Department will examine the roads and determine if there are any de“ ciencies that must be corrected. Once corrected, the developer or homeowners association must petition the county to accept maintenance of the roads. Since bringing up the idea of modifying the code, Commissioner Randy Merritt said he has learned of some unintended consequencesŽ in changing it. One consequence is that buyers trying to secure a mortgage for property within subdivisions where the county has not accepted maintenance on the roads may not be able to secure that mortgage. Banks wont “ nance properties without a maintenance agreement, Merritt said. Merritt said at “ rst he was in support of the changes, but since he has learned of issues with changing the codes, he said he would like to see them remain like they are. These rules have been around for years,Ž Merritt said. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the issue is if the roads are owned by the county and some truck tears up the road because of construction then the county would be responsible to “ x it. People who bought property in some of these subdivisions purchased the lots thinking the roads would be county roads after two years. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming suggested having an internal policy that has the department go out to the subdivisions after the two years is over to inspect the roads. Fleming said everything is working well currently. Some subdivisions that were turned down in the past would need to repetition the board to accept the roads. At the May 16 commission meeting, the county discussed the issue a little bit more. Commissioner Lynn Artz said she wanted to discuss the issue more and would like list of options of what they could do. Encinosa said she did an informal survey of other counties and some counties dont accept subdivision roads at all. Others accept, but automatically create an MSBU for future maintenance. Artz said she would like further discussion and would like to know the costs associated with accepting roads, as well as how many people are affected with the issue of lending. Merritt said he didnt feel like it was fair for the county to go back and not accept roads they initially said they would. They werent aware wed changed our minds,Ž Merritt said. Several commissioners liked the idea of an MSBU for new subdivisions. Stewart pointed out that accepted roads that only have a few homes in them isnt fair to the other tax payers. Merritt suggested setting the MSBU up when the build out is less than 25 percent, then get rid of it after a certain point. The commission will continue to discuss the issue at a future meeting.COUNTY COMMISSIONBoard considers changes on accepting subdivision roadsFacing decrease in property values, commission weighs raising taxesA proposal that new subdivisions must be 90 percent built-out before the county accepts ownership of the roadsWe cant rely on ad valorem taxes anymore, says a commissioner 10 15 20 25 30 6560 70 75 80 85 90 95 100 105 HAITI CUB A DOMINICAN REPUBLIC U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS PUERTO RICO (U.S.) BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS FL GA AL MS LA TX MEXICO BA H AMA S SC YUCATAN PENINSULA GUATEMALA BELIZE HONDURAS ELSALVADOR NICARAGUA COSTA RICA PANAMA VENEZUELA BERMUDA Hurricane Tracking Map Inside Wakulla National Hurricane Preparedness Week May 22 28 2011 Hurricane GuideA Special Section insideJune 16 issue Map & Map Spon sors wil l be in FULL ColorBusiness Car d size$49Inclu ding FULL Col orSpot Color Call Lynda or Denise Value Ad....................... $35................................$10 Eighth Page...........$52.50................................$15 Quarter Page..............$87..............................$20Black & White (Downsized Example) 926-7102$95Inclu ding FULL Col orCenter Spo nsor AdDont Miss th is Opp ortuni ty Deadl ine June 3FUL L ColorFULL ColorLook for this Tracking Map inside Special Hurricane Guide$49Inclu ding FULL Color$49Inclu ding FULL Color$49Incl uding FULL Color$49Inclu ding FULL Col or THE CABINET SHOPTHECABINET SHOP Custom Kitchens&Counter Tops CallPau l s WellGet ThAll TERMITE & PEST CONTR OL P AUL S  222-68081225 Commerce Blvd., Midway We Stand Behind Our WarrantyŽTOTAL PEST CONTROLSERVICEƒEVERYTHING FROM TERMITESTOMICEService Agreements to Fit Your Needs, Financing AvailableServing The Residents of Wakulla County For Over 30 Years.Monticello € Tallahassee € Quincy € Wakulla r r s TM David HinsonSales Representative Authorized Firm The Workswakullas coworking caf www.theworkscafe.com “ReceiveacomplimentarycopyofPastry and Coffee Special!”Let us perk up your day!

Offering some relief is the optional quarter-mill tax levy that Wakulla voters approved last year, which is expected to bring in about $350,000 in revenue. Thats probably employees we wont have to cut,Ž Miller said of the revenue. Im just so thankful that voters approved the quarter-mill,Ž he said. Some other districts werent as successful in selling it to their taxpayers: 35 counties had it on the ballot, but only 16 passed, he said. Miller anticipated that eight or 10 teachers will retire this year, which re” ects the high-end of the pay spectrum with their seniority, and young teachers who “ ll those posts will not have as high salaries. Its going to be a challenge,Ž he said. Probably the biggest one weve faced.ŽThis budget is will come in a wing and a prayer and a pair of crutches,Ž Miller said.Schools face 9 percent budget cutContinued from Page 1A Of the 13 districts deemed Academically High Performing, Wakulla earned enough points from the 2010 Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores to rank fourth behind only Seminole, Brevard, and Martin counties. Those scores included FCAT Writing, Reading, Math and Science in grades three through eleven. Of all 67 districts 2010 FCAT point totals, Wakulla ranked ninth in student scores. Only 13 districts met the high performing challenge because more than FCAT scores are taken into consideration. To be designated as Academically High Performing, a school district must meet the following requirements: 1.Earn a grade of A for two consecutive years, beginning with the 2004-05 academic year and have no district-operated school that earned a grade of F. 2.Comply with the class size requirements. 3. Have no material weaknesses or instances of material noncompliance noted in the school districts annual “ nancial audit. This honor not only recognizes the high expectations we have for educating our students, it also recognizes the importance of being “ scally responsible with the taxpayers money,Ž stated Superintendent David Miller. It is the collaborative effort of students, teachers, parents, and administrators giving their best every day that keeps this school district high performing. We are truly a community that values our childrens education.Ž In 2007, the Legislature created the Academically High Performing District designation to recognize school districts that were consistently doing an outstanding job educating their students. Scores for the 2011 FCAT should be out early in June, according to the Florida Department of Education. FCAT 2011 Writing scores have already arrived. In the three grade levels tested, writing scores ranked Wakulla third in the state for 8th grade; fourth in the state for 10th grade; and sixth in the state for 4th grade. Wakulla, again, is high performing district The Coastal Optimist Club held their annual Middle School Brain Brawl Competition on Friday, May 6. Wakulla Middle School hosted the event which pitted top scholars from Coast Charter School, Wakulla Middle and Riversprings Middle School against each other in a three round completion. Each round consisted of 20 questions covering the areas of language, math, science, social studies and current events. Students have ten seconds for math questions and “ ve seconds to buzz in their answer for all other questions. Most questions are dif“ cult even for adults to answer in that time frame if at all but the students impressed parents, sponsors and Optimist members alike with the depth of their knowledge. Riversprings Middle came ready for battle and dressed to kill as they defeated their opponents once again. This is the third year in a row that RMS has taken “ rst place and held on to the Brain Brawl Champion Cup. The winning team members were Cade Cutchen, J.P. Piotrowski, Daniel Sloan, Isaac Kent, Blakeleigh Bolton and Ben West. West received the medallion for highest scorer for RMS and also was the highest overall individual scorer for the competition. Bill Taylor and Trey Thaxton are the sponsors for the Riversprings team. Coming in second place was Coast Charter School. Team members are Foster Anderson, who was the highest scorer for the team, Taylor Barnes, Anna Lloyd, Lydia Lloyd, Jordon Gibson and Hallie Anderson. The sponsor for the Coast Charter School team is Sarah Lloyd. Wakulla Middle Schools highest scorer was Nathan Green. Other team members were Jacen Jones, Connor Keith, Jacob Evanshine, Riley Carrier and Danna Richardson. The sponsor for WMS is Derek Miller. RMS Brain Brawl winners Cade Cutchen, J.P. Piotrowski, Daniel Sloan, Isaac Kent, Blakeleigh Bolton and Ben West. On Thursday, March 31, Coastal Optimist Club President Jo Ann Daniels awarded checks to the winners of the Optimist Essay Contest which was held in February. The topic of the essay was How My Education is the Key to a Successful Future.Ž Wakulla High School student Annalise Torres won “ rst place in the competition and received $100. Freshman Libby Inlow received $75 for the second place essay and Freshman Colbi King received $50 and won third place. The students and their teacher, Lori Sandgren, attended a luncheon in their honor at Poseys Steam Room. The entries were judged on their overall content, writing style, grammatical accuracy, neatness, organization and thoroughness in covering the topic. Were very proud of the effort these students put into their essays,Ž said Daniels. The Wakulla Middle School bands have been very busy this spring. The sixth grade band performed at the Crawfordville Elementary School Spring Festival and also for the Fifth Grade Orientation and then played for the Wakulla Education Center preschool children. The seventh grade band marched in the Christian Coalition Parade with the eighth grade band. They also performed their Spring Concert along with the eighth grade band and jazz band for both a daytime and evening program in April. The seventh graders then enjoyed a reward trip to Wild Adventures in May. In addition to the performances with the seventh grade band, the eighth grade band performed at the Bandmasters District Festival and most recently played concerts at Medart and Crawfordville Elementary Schools with the jazz band. They also traveled to Orlando to have a day of fun at Islands of Adventure. The jazz band performed at the Crawfordville Elementary School Chili Cook-off and the Celebration of the Arts program as well as the other performances already mentioned. Band at Wakulla Middle School is a fun and exciting activity. Band Director Laura Hudson encourages any “ fth grader interested in being in the band next year to call the middle school and have their name placed on the band list if they have not already signed up through their elementary school music teacher.

A team that manufactured runs with steals to get in scoring position and then bunting in runs, as they did in the semi-“ nal. It was a team that played above expectations … and then became over-achievers in the post-season, beating district rivals Godby and Rutherford, and then taking on Jacksonvilles Bishop Kenny with an improbable win last week. Archbishop McCarthy was heavily favored against Wakulla … but could not produce runs in the early innings against a War Eagle team that never accepted it was over-matched.

The team was made up of Will Barwick, Lucas Briggs, Marc Carter, Jake McCarl, Jacob Dismuke, Hunter Greene, Jekale Forbes, Taylor Bennett, Beau Baker, Bryson Nichols, Damon Countryman, and Balin Jernigin. Moving on to the All-Stars are Barwick, Briggs, McCarl, Carter, Dismuke, and Greene. Red Sox Manager was Michael Briggs, Coaches were WMSs Mike Barwick and Mike Greene. Team Mom was Angel Carter. Coach Barwicks work with the pitchers all season was a great asset. The Wakulla Wave Fastpitch Travel team participated in the Play for a Cure Tournament in Panama City the weekend of May 14 and 15. After a slow start on Saturday, the team came back on Sunday to place 3rd out of 14 teams in their age bracket. The teams next tournament is Memorial Day Weekend in Madison. They then have two tournaments in June, after which they will participate in the USFA World Series in Panama City Beach the week of July 10.

In the quarter“ nals, the team defeated Crestviews Sudden Impact in a 4…3 thriller. Wakulla took a 2-0 in the 2nd inning when Desera Travis and Ashley Colvin scored on a bunt for base hit by Devlyn Curtis. Crestview rallied to take a 3…2 lead in the 5th inning and Wakulla answered by scoring two more when Jesella Harvey walked, stole 2b and scored on a Melanie Collins single. Collins later scored on an RBI ground ball by Tia Unsel l after being moved to 3b by Mallory Whaleys drive to right “ eld.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBelieve it not, the winds on the coast “ nally died. Fairly breezy in the afternoon which is to be expected this time of year. The temperature might have been in the 90s in Tallahassee and Crawfordville but it was very comfortable on the ” ats “ shing. The water temperature is still in the 70s which is keeping the air temperature cooler. If I start rambling and dont make sense its because I just “ shed seven charters in a row and right now Im pretty tired. I was down at Shell Island Fish Camp getting bait the other morning and my old friend Capt. Sid Stringer was sitting on the bench waiting for his party to show up. Sid and I used to run quite a few charters together when the Shell Point Marina was open. Things slowed down and he started guiding for Alan Hobbs at Shell Island Fish Camp. I dont know how many days in a row he fishes sometimes but he does it without a T-Top on his boat and that sun can really beat down on you and cause some real damage over the years-as I can attest with two skin cancers cut off. Plus you factor in the fact that Sid is 83 years old and I can tell you, he is one tough guy and one heck of a “ sherman. One of the things he said which I agree with totally, if we didnt like it we sure wouldnt do it. Tom Riddle and Mike Pearson from Tifton were down with a couple of their “ shing buddies last Thursday and headed offshore. They caught their limit of grouper and went to K Tower where they caught some nice amberjack and said they hooked some awesome Goliath grouper. They were on their way back to Tifton by 1 p.m. Alan Lamarche took some of his Plantation people and they also had an excellent day. He said there are plenty of gags in state waters and also plenty in federal waters, which they had to throw back. I believe snapper season reopens June 1 but dont know when gag grouper in federal waters reopens. On July 1, scallop season will open and if we continue to get the amount of rain we have had so far we should have a banner crop of scallops which will help the economy and make a lot of people happy. They like salty water and the past few years the water had a low salinity due to all the rain. Right now it cant get much saltier. Keep your fingers crossed. Lots of trout, reds and Spanish are being caught from Lanark to Carrabelle Beach. Some nice reds are being caught in the cut at St. George and on the beach at Dog Island. I also heard of a lot of reds being caught wading off Highway 98 near the dirt boat ramp behind Alligator Point. Jimmy at Shell Island said plenty of “ sh are being caught and they were awfully busy last weekend. Most of their boats are “ shing the end of the stake line on the west ” ats. Sid has been coming in with his limit or close to it every trip. He said most of his “ sh are coming on the white Gulp about three feet under a cork in four to six feet of water. On Wednesday, I “ shed with a friend from Atlanta and spent a lot of time looking for “ sh. When we “ nally found them they were in three feet of water and the only thing they would hit was the New Penny Gulp under a cork. The next day I took the Bill Birdwell party from Shell Point and the only thing they wanted was the Gulp. We had a good catch of trout and ” ounder that day and Bill caught a 20pound cobia. Friday, Saturday and Sunday I “ shed with the Dennis Longmire party from Louisville, Ky., and we had limits of trout each day and probably had 20 Spanish for the three days but most were small. We “ shed every day for reds with no success but to make up for the “ ght I think we caught about 30 sharks. We had to leave two areas because thats all that was there. If you want a kid to have a good time, take a medium heavy rod and “ sh the ” ats with cut bait or live pin“ sh. They will have an absolute ball. If youre interested in “ shing some king tournaments go to C-Quarters Webb page. They have three king“ sh tournaments and a kids “ shing tournament between now and Aug. 6. Fathers Day Weekend is the Big Bend Salt Water Classic, which helps fund putting arti“ cial reefs offshore. This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend and anybody who has a boat is probably gonna be on the water and its very likely quite a few of them will be drinking and some of them should not be driving a boat. Remember to look out for other boaters and know the rules of the road. Be careful out there, catch a lot of “ sh and have a safe Memorial weekend. e “ sh are out there and biting From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Special to The NewsThe absence of a consistent rainfall pattern through April and May has helped to compound the “ re danger level in our area. North Florida, already experiencing drought conditions, is getting drier each day that signi“ cant rain does not fall. Currently temperatures have been creeping into the mid to upper 90s and relative humidity percentages have dropped into the 20s, further contributing to the dryness. Until we start experiencing a consistent pattern of daily rainfall our area will be extremely vulnerable to wild“ res. The Florida Division of Forestry urges the public to exercise safe practices when using “ re outdoors. Here are some suggestions: Dont burn unless absolutely necessary. Stay with your “ re at all times until it is dead out Dont burn on windy days during these conditions Protect your home by keeping rooftops and gutters clean of debris that may serve as fuel for ” oating “ re embers. Warm equipment and vehicles can cause fires when parked in tall dried grasses. Report all suspicious “ res to the Divisions Arson Alert Hotline (800) 342-5869 Report any “ re by calling 911. Until the rains return our “ re danger level will continue to climb as will our likelihood of experiencing wildfire in our area. Stay Aware and Stay Safe! For more information contact Todd W. Schroeder, Florida Division of Forestry, (850) 414-1138.

As I mentioned last week, this week is National Safe Boating Week and Flotilla 12 started the week off with a blast … literally! Several members joined together this past Saturday at the boat ramp in the St. Marks National Wildlife festival to participate in the Ready, Set, Inflate world record attempt. Alex Gulde organized the effort and was joined by Duane Treadon, Phil Hill, Norma Hill, Tim Ashley, Mark Rocha, Karen Katowski, Rob Purvis, Ray Willis, Judy Willis (spouse), Carolyn Treadon, Gabby Treadon (child), Cameron Treadon (child) and one puppy, Bentley. Three non-flotilla af“ liated persons in attendance were Capt. Thomas Shipp of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Susanna Stephens, and Jim McCallister. We all prepared by getting ready, set and then pulled our triggers to in” ate. If none of you have ever in” ated a life jacket, I can tell you it is not the most comfortable feeling. They are very constricting and very snug! Both our girls and puppy were not fans of the noise either. By the time we were all in” ated, and the pictures were taken, we were ready to get out of the life jackets. I have no doubt that they would work wonders in the event of an emergency given how full they all became. Now we send in a preand post-inflate picture and wait to see if we indeed broke last years world record! I will be sure to let you know when we hear anything. As if that were not enough triumph, Saturday was a day of success for three newly quali“ ed crew members for Flotilla 12. Once a member has completed crew training and is ready to become fully quali“ ed, they are scheduled for a final quali“ cation exam. A quali“ cation examiner from another ” otilla is asked to come and test out potential crew members for pro“ ciency in several areas. Dan Berry came down from Eufaula, Ala., to test Phil Hill, Norma Hill and Rob Purvis. Coxswain Mark Rosen along with Duane Treadon and Raye Crews worked with Dan to test out the new crew. Rick Yood and Bob Asztalos also assisted in pretending to be a vessel in distress. Before the training could begin, though, a ganoe with a broken engine was assisted to their dock. The occupants were paddling after the engine gave out and were grateful for the assist! We are very proud to announce that Phil, Norma and Rob are all fully quali“ ed crew for Flotilla 12!! This weekend is Memorial Day, a day when we all remember and pay honor to those who have given their lives to protect our freedom and a time when many families get out on the water and take advantage of the day. It is also a time that boating accidents spike. This weekend marks for many the beginning of summer, and before heading out for a fun day, it is important to take a few precautions to make sure everyone comes home safely. Safety begins before you ever leave the house. Be sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen and bug spray. Take enough life jackets so everyone has one to wear that is “ tted to them before leaving the dock. Be sure you have a radio that works to call for help if needed. Pay attention to those around you, as they say -you can be dead right. As Sherrie reminds us each week, Safe Boating is NO Accident. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 – Page 11A Almanac Brought To You By Crawfordville Branch Now Open224…4960www.fsucu.org a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiencesCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Crew aboard the Doc B. Lion“ sh, also called turkey “ sh, dragon “ sh and scorpion “ sh, are native to the reefs of the Indo-Paci“ c. They are now invading the Florida Keys and Bahamas and were likely introduced into South Florida waters in 1992. This beautiful “ sh uses its 18 dorsal spines to deliver a painful venom to anyone who touches them. In the past, most injuries were reported from aquarium enthusiasts while servicing their imported specimens. They can live up to 15 years, grow to a length of 15 inches with a weight of 2.6 pounds. Unfortunately, enough have escaped into the wild to form reproductive populations. They are now spreading into our Florida waters where there are few if any natural predators. These “ sh are predators of smaller “ sh, consuming many of the fry of our sport “ sh. In the Bahamas and U.S. Eastern seaboard waters, these Lion“ sh get so large that they can be harvested as food. Lion“ sh cookbooks are now available to encourage the harvest and eradication of this pest. Lion“ sh harvest contests in South Florida are now hosted by REEF and other reef conservation agencies in an effort to reduce their negative impact on our reefs. You are encouraged to kill every specimen you “ nd. In 2010, FWC researchers “ rst found two Lion“ sh from two separate net tows taken at distances of 99 and 160 miles off the southwest coast of Florida, north of the Dry Tortugas and west of Cape Romano, a new record for intrusion into the Gulf of Mexico. These specimens were taken from depths of 183 and 240 feet as part of a trawl survey funded by the Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program, a cooperative state and federal program. On Saturday, May 21, we found and collected a Lion“ sh in 110 feet of water south of Cape San Blas while diving with Joe Hope on his boat the Triggr Happy. While the specimen we collected was too small to eat, now that they have arrived, they will grow much larger. To report further sightings of lion“ sh off our shores, please call the nationwide reporting number (877-7869567) sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Geological Survey or “ ll out an online report on the USGS website at http://nas.er.usgs.gov/sightingreport. asp.

By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netCOAST Charter School in St. Marks has been a high performing school for the last couple years and, in turn, its charter agreement with the Wakulla County School District has been extended for 15 years. Susan Flournoy, principal of Coast Charter School, was hoping the city of St. Marks would look at renewing the lease it has for the old St. Marks Community Center for 15 more years. I hope you can match it,Ž Flournoy said. Currently, the city has a “ ve year lease agreement with the school because that was also the length of the charter agreement. We have been successful,Ž Flournoy said. The charter agreement was extended because of the school being financially sound, as well as an A school. Flournoy said if the school wasnt meeting expectations, the school would be closed by the state and would no longer be funded. So if anything did happen and the school closed, the lease would be terminated, she said. She added, I feel like we provide a huge service.Ž Commissioner Phil Cantner said the school leasing the building is an income stream for the city. Its hard to imagine a better use,Ž Cantner added. He said that 15 years provided security for the school, as well as the city. The rest of the commission agreed and voted unanimously to the 15-year lease agreement. You guys are awesome,Ž Flournoy said. Thank you.Ž In other news, the city put out a request for proposals for an engineer, as well as administrator of the $600,000 Community Development Block Grant for commercial revitalization. City Manager Zoe Mans“ eld said this has to be done in order to begin brainstorming and developing a plan for the use of the grant. Bids received will be opened on June 3 and the bid will be awarded at the June 9 meeting. Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comHobert Verdry OwensContinued from Page 6A After retirement he and Syble moved to Sopchoppy where they lived until his passing on May 19. Funeral services were held Monday, May 23, at Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church, 117 Curtis Mill Road, Sopchoppy. Burial followed at West Sopchoppy Cemetery. Survivors include his wife of 65 years: Syble R. Davis Owens; son and wife, John and Mary Ann Owens of Curtis Mills; daughter and husband, Sandra A. and Michael A. Stone of Tallahassee; son and wife, Michael V. and Patricia Owens of Nome, Alaska; brothers, H. Odell Owens of Bristol and Billy Fred Owens of Carrabelle; a sister, Helen B. Reese of Apalachicola; grandchildren, Levi Owens, Melanie Woodall, Matthew Owens, Alan Stone, Sarah Stark, Emily Stone, Melissa Owens, Michael Owens; and “ ve great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father, Hobert Henry Owens; mother, Fannie Louise Howell Robinson; brother, J.H. Owens; son, Ronald E. Owens; and grandson, Verdry L. Owens. Bevis Funeral Home, Harvey-Young Chapel in Crawfordville was in charge of arrangements.(850-926-3333 www.bevisfh.com). Continued from Page 1A His goal, he says, is to restructure the department for better use of resources. That includes fewer administrators and more deputies on the road, he says. Those who favor a consolidation of “ re and EMS under the sheriff, he says, are misguided. During a period when he was in south Florida in the early 1980s, Creel said he was friends with a sheriff who oversaw “ re and EMS … and it was a nightmare. I think law enforcement should be separate from “ re and rescue,Ž he said. ŽLet them do their job, and let me do my job … which is law enforcement.Ž I want to see whats in the budget so I can craft a budget to use the resources more effectively,Ž he says. Its only fair for people in this county to know how their tax dollars are being spent.Ž Asked about Harveys practice of renting bed space in the county jail to immigration prisoners, Creel said: If its bringing in money to the county and the department, sure I would continue it.Ž In 2008, he announced in February and the election was in November. The strain was obvious on Creel and his close-knit family of wife, Cheryl, and daughter, Hillary, as the results were close enough for a recount. He stepped away from the swirling rumors and expressed his con“ dence in the system and the canvassing board under County Judge Jill Walker and accepted the results of vote. Creel says hes building on that last election. I feel like if Id have a little more time,Ž he says with a shake of his head. So: Im coming out early … I want to get out and meet people.Ž Looking back at the margin of less than 50 votes, and half that needed to win, Creel says: I feel like I could have picked up those votes.Ž Continued from Page 1AEarlier in the year, the Florida legislature decided to privatize the concessions at Wakulla Springs … among other state parks … in order to save the state money. A pre-bid meeting was held on April 20, and bidding contracts were due to DEP by May 4. The Wakulla Springs concessions available for purchase included the restaurant, gift shop, and 27-room lodge. DEPs goal is to have the new vendor in place by July 1, which is the start of the states “ scal year. Right now, Wakulla Springs employs 11 part time and 20 full time employees. Ron Piasecki, President of Friends of Wakulla Springs, lamented that none of the Friends were involved in the evaluation process, and thus have no idea what the criteria for evaluation was. Regardless, Piasecki remains hopeful for the future of Wakulla Springs. A representative of CLC personally spoke with Piasecki at the pre-bid meeting, and said that CLC would work with the Friends. Piasecki stated he had no concerns at allŽ for Wakulla Springs.By KRIS WHITTENSpecial to The NewsPlease join the friends of John McKenzie and Outzs Too in Newport on Saturday, May 28, from 2 p.m. until... for a bene“ t concert for Gabrielle GabbyŽ and little Layne McKenzie.

That day, as I stood there, I could feel her parents looking down, smiling. They were both such kind, and gentle people who would lend a hand wherever needed. Gabby lost her wonderful mother, Elaine, in 2006 to cancer, and all she had left was her father, John, and her 1-year-old son, Layne.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 – Page 13AContinued from Page 1A The Keystone species requires mature long leaf pine forests with trees that are at least 100 years old. The RCWs need the red heart disease found in old pines. Harmless to the trees, the disease softens the wood, making it easier to excavate and form cavities. The thriving long leaf pine systems required for the RCWs are the very systems that federal forest biologists like Hess work tirelessly to maintain. Unfortunately, they are also the same systems that continue to dwindle every year due to urban development and lack of necessary, regular burning. Three million acres of long leaf pine forest remain of the original 92 million, and only one percent of the original Red-cockaded Woodpecker population survives. The RCW is the indicator species of the long leaf pine forests,Ž said Hess. We want the same things. The RCWs will tell us everything we need to know about how the forest is doing. Forty years ago we decided to manage the forest for the woodpeckers. You manage the woodpeckers, you manage the forest,Ž said Hess. On the hour drive deep into the woods, Shell Point Beach resident Holly Hutchinson re” ected on what brought her out that Saturday. Hearing about the trip, the RCW stood out to her. She had a friend who worked in the army and did timber cruising for the RCW; he helped put together the speci“ cations that aid biologists like Hess. She said she had recently been reading Jack Rudloe, and has taken an interest in North Florida ecology. She wasnt always a nature buff. As Ive gotten older and faced health problems,Ž Hutchinson, who was recently diagnosed with late term Lyme disease, said. Ive had a rebirth of childlike curiosity for the natural world and all forms of life. How important and beautiful it is,Ž said Hutchinson. Before reaching the birds, Hess took the visitors to several spots in the forest to show what North Florida looked like hundreds of years ago -when de Soto first visited,Ž he said. It was a sight to see: Coming out of the canopy, wet savannas stretched for miles. Having been recently burned, wiregrass covered the land, delicate orchids seemed to hang in the air, and clusters of bright yellow pitcher plants jutted out of the ground like the pipes of a Seussical organ. Further back, swamps met the savannas and 1,000-year-old cypresses, untouched for lack of useable wood, looked like taffy -twisted, pulled, and frozen in time. Hess pulled back the savanna growth, revealing rich soil. He explained how the savannas are one of the most diverse eco-systems of North America. There are 50 species per square meter. Thats tropical rain-forest type of stuff,Ž said Hess, who peppered his informative tour with exclamations on the prettiness and greatness of the land. He was full of the child-like curiosity Hutchinson spoke of. Hess attributes the success of the RCWs and the natural, diverse landscapes of the Apalachicola Forest to one thing only -burning. Because forest wildlife is his “ rst passion, “ re is second. Hundreds of years ago, fires would have occurred naturally, sparked by lightning, every two and half years or so. There is only one area of the forest that still has a natural burn rotation. When asked why this is, Hess responded,  How many roads did you come in on?Ž Without a natural burn rotation, overgrowth occurs and regeneration doesnt. The Apalachicola Forest has been burning since the 1960s. We cant burn as much as we want in summer, so we burn through all seasons. We try for 100,000 acres a year,Ž said Hess. He hoped that his “ eld trips helped citizens understand that “ re management is necessary for eco-systems and that complaints set the forest service back in time and resources. On the last leg of the trip, the group held their breath as they watched Hess in action. With an old belt around his waist and the support of thin rackety, detachable ladders he climbed twenty feet up a pine to stare into the RCWs cavity. Im not scared of anything,Ž he said, except thatŽ -as thunder roared in the distance. These ladders are metal,Ž he said. He got down, and the gang waited out the storm. Soon, he was back up. With a noose made of monofilament line strung through a metal horseshoe, he scooped up three baby birds, put them in a satchel, and brought them down to be banded. The RCWs have to be caught between seven and 10 days after their birth. Before seven their legs are not long enough, and after ten they have developed ” ight feathers that cannot be tampered with. The bands record vital information that helps Hess to not impact the breeding population when he moves them in the fall. Hess has been instrumental in the development of the translocation program for the woodpecker to other conservation lands in the southeast. He moves 40 birds a year off the forest, and 20 a year to areas within. Once on the ground, the group gathered around Hess as he held the three baby birds in his hand. They are birds that are extremely aware of their surroundings,Ž he said, as one of the parents of the RCW chicks watched from afar. She made the sound of a squeak toy and never took her eyes off of Hess. His assistant, Heather Wiggins … a recent FSU graduate in biology interning for Hess … sat on the ground, surrounded by binders full of pencil scratch, and took out tiny instruments and colored plastic bands. In minutes their work was done and Hess ascended the ladders again to return the chicks home. As she watched him climb back up, Wiggins spoke of post-graduates uncertainties and the work she hopes to do soon in Costa Rica -tropical conservation. She laughed and said that Hess is strongly encouraging her to stick with Apalachicola conservation. I love it out here, and I would love to actually get paid for it,Ž said Wiggins. She spoke of how hard Hess works. You know, I dont know how he does it, in the nesting season he is out here 12 hours a day, seven days a week climbing trees.Ž Field trippers went home with beautiful photos and gave spirited declarations of a day well spent. Hesss educational tour was a small adventure into a Florida unknown even by locals. There was only one question left unanswered. The RCWs tell you everything you need to know about the forest, so what are they telling you?Ž asked a member of the group. That this forest is in good shape. One group for every 79 acres, more dense than anywhere in the world, but farther away from the grassland its poorer and poorer,Ž replied Hess.Banding woodpeckers: A “ eld trip into the forest Wakulla County Tobacco Free Florida Partnership MeetingWhere: Wakulla TCC at 5 Crescent Way Crawfordville, Florida 32327 Date: Wednesday, June 1, 2011 Time: 3:30 pm to 4:30 pmFor more information call Tonya Hobby at 926-0401 ext 217 Needtomakeupaclassorrecovercreditsfor graduation?MakeYourSummerCount!YouDONOTneedtobeenrolledinSavaryAcademyduringthe regularschoolyeartotakeadvantageoftheSummerProgram.

The 8 members of the Go hard or go homeŽ squad arrived at 5:30 hungry and ready for battle! They came to “ ght a 4-pound monster burger known as the Behemoth; 3 pounds of beef, 10 slices of cheese, an enormous bun and a whole pound of french fries, about 5 pounds of food total. Armed only with forks and gastrointestinal fortitude, the team of two women and 6 men went after the challenge with great fervor. The squad “ lled Myra Jeans new party room with enthusiastic supporters and curious onlookers. All were hoping that at least one of the squad members might devour the beast entirely within the hour of allotted time, and from that dining room duel, a champion would be born! Their hopes and cheers were answered by one Henry Abarca who swallowed the last 3 fries after 59 minutes and 43 seconds. His quiet and steady determination earned him the title of the Silent Assassin by his fellow squad members. By defeating Myra Jeans Behemoth Cheeseburger Challenge, he earned his place beside the other 2 champions on our wall of fame. Congratulations Henry.

Leto and Marshall visited GSML on Friday, May 13, while on a “ eld trip with their classmates from Christian Home and Bible School in Mount Dora. Leto and Marshall approached their teacher, Mrs. Sarah Garback, back in October to ask about placing a collection jar in the classroom to raise money for turtles. Garback thought it would be a good idea for the girls to raise money for the Marine Lab so that they could see “ rst hand where their money was going to, and the school was already planning a “ eld trip to the Lab. Marshall developed an appreciation of turtles on a visit to New Smyrna Beach. In Garbacks class, Marshall and Leto were part of the same writing group that named themselves The Turtles.Ž After deciding to raise money to help sea turtles, Marshall and Leto decorated buckets and held a coin war in their school. They gave speeches in Chapel to encourage their peers to donate money. They even held a fundraiser night at Chic-Fil-A …and cleaned up behind themselves. Garback said she is particularly proud because these two stuck with it.Ž They continued to fundraise and give periodic updates to their school, showing surprising initiative for two eleven year olds. Marshall … who has been nominated as a Disney Dreamer and Doer … continued to research, even visiting a clinic for wounded turtles in Ponce Inlet. The money will go toward the care, feeding and housing of sea turtles that need assistance …often Kemps Ridley sea turtles, the most endangered sea turtles in the world. GSML works with the local veterinarian at Shepherd Springs to remove hooks that the turtles have swallowed, watch the turtles, and then release them when they are ready. Debbi Clifford of GSML asks that “ shermen do not use stainless steel hooks when “ shing, because these hooks do not break down as easily, and it is best to avoid operating on turtles. Leto and Marshall had other advice regarding sea turtles: turn off your lights at night if you live on the coast and knock your sandcastles down when you leave the beach. Arti“ cial light and sandcastles confuse the turtles. Also, when balloons are released into the air and eventually make their way into the ocean, sea turtles think they are jelly“ sh and eat them. Leto and Marshall speci“ cally wanted to thank their friends Hayley Grif“ n and Annie Larson for supporting them in their efforts. Jack rudloe holds a rescued sea turttle for Emily Leto and Kassidy Marshall.


W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 Section BBy R.H. CARTERExecutive Director June 14th is Flag Day, and the senior center staff suggested that we take advantage of this day to Salute America and celebrate patriotism to our country that we love so much. This date will allow another celebration in the Senior Center that honors those who have defended our nation with total commitment and many lives. The oldest surviving Wakulla County Veteran of World War II will lead in our pledge to the ” ag of our great nation. This veteran is also a member of the Senior Citizens Board of Directors. The music, recognitions and other presentations will Salute America. Then we will enjoy lunch spread among several locations in the senior center for us to prepare our own plates. Lunch will include hot dogs with a variety of condiments and home made ice cream. After lunch we will go outside the building and observe a ceremony that is structured to retire an American ” ag. Following this ceremony we will be adjourned by the playing of Taps.Ž If you plan to attend this event, please call 926-7145 so we can plan for food. The children of today have ideas very similar to my ideas as a child. People over 30 were out of touch with reality and ancient. As children grow up, the older population gets smarter and looks younger. People between 30 and 50 seem so young to me now. Recently, a young lady greeted me with a hug and I said, Thanks! You make me feel 65 again.Ž She was shocked by my comment. Wisdom and kindness are so common among the seniors I know. You cant put a price on these qualities, but seniors do have a signi“ cant “ nancial impact on the state economy. The Department of Elder Affairs reports that retirement is the states second largest industry. Its second only to the tourist industry. Their annual spending is $135 billion. Seniors pay lots of salaries, goods and services and contribute to retirement funds of baby boomers who will soon retire. Floridas leaders have not done a great job in funding education and social services, including services for senior citizens. Many lifelong citizens of this state are worried about the lack of the Floridas commitment to these services, especially since more and more people age 55 to 64 are moving to Florida at an alarming rate. This age group has grown in this state at three times the national average. Wakulla County is enjoyed by many retirees, even though we are not known as a retirement haven. We are likely to become a more targeted destination in the future. We are blessed with beautiful natural resources that are protected from development. Education and senior services are two challenges ahead in our state that must be addressed. We are facing shrinking support from the federal government. Many of us sometimes fail to see the wisdom of investing in social services. Throughout history it has been the support of education that has brought previous governments and societies to prominence. The sustainability of their success has been the result of how well they care for their older population. America has a great future but our leaders must look beyond one election at a time and improve their long-range planning. Recently, there was a candidate in my of“ ce explaining his commitment to long-range planning without regard to the impact of his re-election. This level of commitment is needed at all levels of government. Proper planning with people working together holds the keys to the future of our country and the greatest society in the history of mankind.

Summer Reading While we have multiple copies of each book on the various schools reading lists for the summer, we unfortunately do not have an unlimited supply. We strongly encourage parents and students to check out and read the books early or risk being placed on a hold list which can easily last all summer long and into the next school year. Riversprings Middle School however, will have copies of the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade required books in their front of“ ce all summer long for their students. We have the lists for each school as well as this years Sunshine State Reading list available at WCPL. Closed for Furlough Day WCPL will be closed on Friday, May 27 for a County mandated Furlough day. We will be open our regular hours on Saturday, May 28.

By JOAN HENDRIXCHAT PresidentThis is a story about Gray, a Miniature Pincher with a pretty brown and black smooth coat, brown eyes, erect ears and docked tail, in good health, no bite history, and sweet as can be. He was picked up as a stray on Nov. 19, 2009 by our Wakulla County Animal Control. Five days went by with no one calling to inquire whether he was found. He was on his own. We saw him and liked him right away and hoped we could “ nd him another family who would care for him and love him. He was adopted from CHAT on Dec. 11, 2009. We sent him to his new family home neutered, all vaccinations updated, micro chipped, on heart worm prevention and in good health. He was with his new family for a year and a half. His owner brought him back to CHAT and hoped we would take him back. What happened? Why was he returned? According to his owner, he was a lot of trouble because he kept getting into the garbage and eating chicken bones. This resulted in his family making two trips to veterinarians for surgery to have the bones removed and it was quite expensive according to his owner. Now he has eaten bones again and has not eliminated in four days and “ nancially, the family cant afford to take him to the veterinary clinic again, we are told. Of course we took Gray back into our adoption facility to get him well again and adoptable to another home. After calling the veterinarians to con“ rm his health problems, we learned that Gray did not have surgery but was given an enema both times to help him pass the bones. When we had to take him back to for a third trip to the clinic, we learned not only was he blockedŽ again but that his pelvis had been broken and his injured bones were in the stage of healing incorrectly. How much pain this little guy was in is anybodys guess. Everything he went through and all the pain he endured could have been prevented. Now, in addition to another enema or surgery, he was going to have a procedure called Femoral Head Ostectomy to remove the femoral head and neck from the femur. FHO surgery is performed to alleviate pain. His veterinarian says that he probably was hit by a car. I bet he was in pain and limped for several weeks and no one noticed. A dog owner must show due diligence and remove or evaluate any temptation that might injure their dog. The problem could have been remedied the “ rst time by making a minor adjustment to the cans. After the surgery, he will require six weeks of recuperation and needs to be placed in a foster home where the atmosphere is quiet and where he can be loved and watched over. If you can foster Gray, please call CHAT at 9260890. Please dont be tempted to give your dogs cooked chicken bones. Cooked bones can be very easily turned into brittle little shards that harm a dogs intestines, mouth or throat and possibly cause him to die.Tail Wagger...

We had birds, ” owers, and butter” y nets to catch the butterflies hanging from the ceiling. There were also decorated umbrellas to keep the April showers away. Our Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon was a huge success, as we recognized over 100 volunteers. Volunteers are the lifeline of the senior center. We depend on our friends who faithfully give us of their spare time, to deliver meals, lead exercise classes, sit with seniors, and give telephone reassurance. Marys AngelsŽ serve meals at the center, and help Chef Mary with her after-hour events and when ever they are needed. We are truly blessed by the participation of so many generous souls. Bobby Jo Salyers from Guardian Medical brought the seniors a class on Green Cleaning.Ž She is a great speaker and had full hands-onŽ audience participation to create the household cleaners and linen spray. Seniors got to bring their recipe and handmade Green products home for future use. Our Easter celebration included music and the Wild Wakulla Wigglers danced their way around the dining room. Its always fun to watch them in their colors to match the seasons. We ended the season with the Spring Fling dance. Music was provided by disc jockey Larry Strickland and his daughter, Brandy. Mina Sutton entertained us with her lovely singing and a smile that told us she was enjoying the evening too. Refreshments helped keep everyones energy levels up and no one wanted the evening to end. The last of the guests, danced their way out the door and said they were looking forward to the next party.

Its not a treat. The doughnut holeŽ is another name for the coverage gap in Medicares Part D prescription drug bene“ t. Medicare, the federal health insurance program for people 65 and older and for some younger persons with disabilities, offers coverage to help people pay for their prescription drugs. Once youve had $2,840 in covered drug expenses in 2011, Medicare Part D drug coverage stops and you must pay for your prescriptions out of pocket. Coverage resumes once youve had $4,550 in covered expenses. Today, Part D is sweeter than it used to be. Before the health care law was enacted, you paid the full price for your drugs when you fell into the doughnut hole. Because of the 2010 health care law, those who reach the doughnut hole in 2011 will receive a 50-percent discount on brand-name prescriptions and 7percent savings on generic drugs. Discounts may vary depending on the type of Part D plan you are enrolled in. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, since January almost 50,000 Floridians have bene“ ted from prescription discounts. These savings will keep growing until 2020 when the doughnut hole disappears. Dont wait until you fall into the doughnut hole to save money. Explore your options today. 1. Talk to your doctor. Ask if there are any generic drugs that can treat your health condition(s). Find out what lifestyle changes you need to make. 2. If you get your prescriptions through Medicare, you can use AARPs online Doughnut Hole Calculator at www.aarp. org/doughnuthole to “ nd ways to delay falling into the doughnut hole. The calculator provides a list of low cost medications; share this list with your doctor. 3. If you are not on Medicare, use the Drug Savings Tool, www.aarp. org/drugsavings. It provides Consumer Reports data about brand name and generic drugs, which may be just as safe and effective and may save you money as well. For more information on the health care law and how you can save on prescription drugs, visit www. aarp.org/getthefacts. Frank Bailey, Director of Health at AARP, leads the Associations member and consumer health education and outreach program, which includes work on issues such as Medicare, prescription drug affordability, long term care, prevention and wellness, wise use of medications and the new health care law (the Affordable Care Act).Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about restless leg syndrome? Im 58 years old, and my wife thinks I may have it because I sometimes wake her up at night kicking my legs. … Restless LarryDear Larry, If an irresistible urge to move your legs has you kicking in your sleep, you may indeed have restless leg syndrome (RLS), a common, under diagnosed condition that affects around 10 percent of Americans. Heres what you should know. RLS is a neurological disorder that causes unpleasant sensations in the legs (usually in the calf area) and an irresistible urge to move your legs when resting or sitting still, and the symptoms usually get worse with age. The main complaint with RLS, other than it being uncomfortable, is that it disrupts sleep. While researchers have yet to pin down a speci“ c cause of RLS, they do know of various conditions that are linked to it including: Genetics (it often runs in families); anemia; kidney problems; peripheral neuropathy; diabetes; attention de“ cit disorder; and even pregnancy. Do you have RLS? If you answer yes to most of these questions, you probably do. € When you sit or lie down, do you have a strong desire to move your legs? € Does your desire to move your legs feel impossible to resist? € Would you use the words unpleasant, creepy-crawly, electric current, itching, tingling, pulling, or tugging to describe your symptoms? € Does your desire to move often occur when you are resting or sitting still? € Does moving your legs make you feel better? € Do these symptoms bother you more at night? € Do your ever have involuntary leg movements while you are awake? Tips and Remedies While theres no cure for RLS, there are some things you can do to alleviate the symptoms. Depending on the severity of your case, here are some tips and remedies that may help: € Get a blood test: Studies show that iron or vitamin de“ ciency can cause or worsen RLS. Your doctor can easily check this with a simple blood test, and may recommend supplementing your diet with vitamin E, iron, vitamin B12 or folate. € Check your meds: Certain drugs that treat high blood pressure, heart conditions, nausea, colds, allergies and depression can make RLS worse. If you take any of these, ask your doctor if something else can be prescribed. € Watch your diet: Pay attention to what you eat to see if it may cause or increase your symptoms. € Limit caffeine and alcohol: Both of these can make symptoms worse. € Stretch: A good calf stretch and a strong massage may provide some relief. € Take a bath: For some people a hot or cold bath can help, or try using a heating pad or ice pack. € Try compression: Wrapping ace bandages or wearing compression support stockings around the problem area has also been known to help. € Exercise: Moderate exercise (20 to 30 minutes three or four times a week) can also relieve symptoms and help you sleep better. Exercising late in the evening however can induce symptoms. € Reduce stress: Stress can aggravate RLS. Meditation and yoga are good relaxation techniques you may want to try, especially before going to bed at night. Treatments If the tips or remedies dont improve your condition prescription medications may help. Requip (or its generic Ropinirole) and Mirapex are two drugs approved by the FDA to treat RLS, but there are several other drugs that treat other conditions (dopaminergic agents, sedatives, anticonvulsants and pain relievers) that have also been found to be helpful. Talk to your doctor about these options, or consult an RLS specialist (see rls.org to locate one) or a sleep specialist (see sleepcenters.org). Send your senior questions to Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of The Savvy SeniorŽ book.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 – Page 5BBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 20 … Elections dominated the news this week as Democrats scored big in a typically red region of the state while combatants in South Florida ready for another mayoral race that may be affected by an election reform bill signed into law that among other things limits access to the polls. Meanwhile, the clock began to tick as lawmakers submitted to Gov. Rick Scott a $70 billion spending plan that has already led to reported layoffs at some school districts. Responding to questions, the “ rst term governor said he would “ nd additional savingsŽ in the proposed budget, a promise that included hints that educational construction projects could be vulnerable. Scotts budget review comes as Floridas economy continues to show signs of rebirth as home sales and the states unemployment picture both showed improvement in what is expected to be a long slog back to the golden yearsŽ before Floridas housing market began crashing in 2007. State of“ cials announced this week that Floridas unemployment rate in April fell to 10.8 percent, down 0.3 percentage points from March and a 1.2 percentage points from April 2010. Floridas existing home sales in April inched up 2 percentage points from the year before. BROWN TAKES JACKSONVILLE MAYORS RACE In a stunning outcome in the race for mayor of Jacksonville, Democrat Alvin Brown defeated Republican opponent Mike Hogan in the second round of elections Tuesday. The race had been closely followed because of the potential that Brown could win in what is often a cornerstone area for GOP statewide campaigns. Hell froze over,Ž one long-time Republican voter in Atlantic Beach told News Service this week in response to the news that Brown had bested his GOP rival and set the pundits pens scribbling over what the coup means, if anything, for Republican aspirations in 2012. In a political version of a Rorschach Test, observers took differing views on whether Browns victory in what has been a conservative bastion of the state portends trouble for Scott in 2012 or was simply a case of a weak Republican candidate who failed to rally the regions business community. I dont think were sort of heading for a new Democratic dominance of Duval County,Ž said Matthew Corrigan, a political-science professor at the University of North Florida. Instead, Corrigan said Hogans earlier opposition to downtown Jacksonville development and some ill-timed gaffes may have alienated him from middle-of-the-road Republicans. Others, however, contend Browns victory was a possible harbinger for things to come and may portend problems for Scott, who needs the region to win. The win also brings hope to Democrats who say President Barack Obama may have a chance to do as well as he did in 2008. It became a Republican-Democrat stepping-off point for 2012,Ž said Rep. Mike Weinstein, R-Jacksonville, of the election. It became a very different election in the last six weeks.Ž While Jacksonvilles race may be decided, another heated contest continues to boil in Miami-Dade County, where election changes signed into law this week by Gov. Rick Scott may come into play. Next weeks election will be closely watched not only those interested in who becomes the countys next mayor, but by campaign geeks looking to see how recent changes to Floridas early voting, provisional balloting and petition gathering laws may shape the 2012 presidential race in a critical swing state. On Thursday, Scott signed a controversial elections bill (HB 1355), which took effect immediately in all but “ ve Florida counties that are subject to Department of Justice review based on their history of racial discrimination. Secretary of State Kurt Browning tried to allay fears that the changes would signi“ cantly reduce particular voter turnout (read Democrat). With no comment from Scotts of“ ce, Browning found himself defending the newly penned law shortly after it was put into effect. On a provision that requires voters who have moved from county to county to cast provisional ballots if they havent changed their address before the election, Browning said he would use his increased authority under the bill to direct local elections of“ cials that unless there is evidence of fraud in provisional ballots, they shall count those provisional ballots.Ž In addition to the address change, the measure reduces the number of early-voting days; increases regulations for third-party voter registration organizations; and creates a new panel, chaired by Browning, to set a date for the states presidential preference primary.Some rights group dont like the new law. Governor Scott and the anti-civil liberties State Legislature have achieved an astonishing voter suppression trifecta,Ž said Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida. With just one bill, they made it harder to register to vote, harder to cast your vote, and harder to have your vote counted.Ž HAWKES HOUNDED BY TAJ MAHAL, VINEGAR Having already lost the chief justice post because of his involvement with the infamous First District Court of Appeal courthouse (aka the Taj Mahal), Judge Paul Hawkes this week got slapped with an 11-page complaint from the Judicial Qualifying Commission that skewered the appellate judge for a litany of transgressions that surprised even some of his sharpest critics. In a scathing rebuke, the report says Hawkes ordered the destruction of documents surrounding the construction of the courthouse and demanded his clerk to help Hawkes son prepare a brief appealing a ruling by the 1st DCA. Your conduct relative to the construction of the First DCA courthouse has brought the entire judiciary of the State of Florida into disrepute, has in” icted substantial harm upon the entire state court system and has therefore demeaned the entire court system of the State of Florida,Ž the report reads. Investigators recounted another incident in which Hawkes asked an employee to buy vinegar to clean out his personal coffee maker and demanded a written explanation when the employee refused. Hawkes, through his attorney, has disputed some facts and defended others. Judge Hawkes was at all times acting in what he “ rmly believed to be the best interests of the state, the judiciary and the court on which he serves,Ž Tallahassee lawyer Kenneth Sukhia said in a lengthy statement issued in response to the JQC complaint. FLORIDA NOT-FOR-NOWŽ PROGRAM Funding cuts continue to hamstring the states environmental land buying program. The Florida Cabinet on Tuesday approved a priority list eligible for preservation under the popular Florida Forever program. But because of budget cuts approved by the Legislature, the vast majority of the nearly 2 million acres ready for conservation will remain on the waiting list for another year. Lawmakers didnt put any money into the popular land preservation program, but gave the state the authority to spend a little over $300 million on it if money becomes available through the sale of surplus state lands. Environmentalists say, the most that could likely be raised from such land sales would be $50 million or so. STORY OF THE WEEK: (TIE) Democrat Alvin Brown beats GOP rival Mike Hogan in Jacksonville mayors race. Judicial Quali“ cations Commission “ les formal charges against First DCA Justice Paul Hawkes for professional breaches stemming from construction of “ rst DCA building in Tallahassee. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Jacksonville has always been a conservative stronghold for Republicans, and were going to have to really study what happened in this race,Ž Senate President Mike Haridopolos on the surprise victory of Democrat Alvin Brown over Republican Mike Hogan in the Jacksonville mayors race. WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Elections dominate By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 17 … First District Court of Appeals Judge Paul Hawkes badgered employees and destroyed documents while pushing for a massive new headquarters for the court that has since been dubbed the Taj Mahal, according to a scathing report issued Tuesday by the Judicial Qualifications Commission. The panels 11-page notice of formal chargesŽ surprised even some of Hawkes sharpest critics with broader accusations than the attention-grabbing headlines about the ornate courthouse on the outskirts of Tallahassee. The report also says Hawkes ordered his clerk to help Hawkes son prepare a brief appealing a ruling by the 1st DCA and pressured a furniture manufacturer to pay for a trip to Indiana by Hawkes and his son. Your conduct relative to the construction of the First DCA courthouse has brought the entire judiciary of the State of Florida into disrepute, has in” icted substantial harm upon the entire state court system and has therefore demeaned the entire court system of the State of Florida,Ž said the report, authored by Wallace Pope, special counsel for the JQC, and Michael Schneider, general counsel for the commission. The notice means Hawkes will likely appear before a hearing panel of the JQC before the case ultimately heads to the Florida Supreme Court. Hawkes has 20 days to respond to the “ ling. The report seemed to further undermine Hawkes already-precarious position on the court. He resigned as chief judge of the 1st DCA last year. On Tuesday, Sen. Mike Fasano -who has hounded Hawkes and other members of the court over the costs of the court building -called for Hawkes to consider resigning over the allegations. A spokeswoman for Cannon, R-Winter Park, said the House wouldnt rush into action. The findings paint Hawkes as an overbearing taskmaster in pushing for the construction of the courthouse, often humiliating or browbeating those at the court or the Department of Management Services who questioned the cost or methods for the new building. In fact some DMS employees expressed that in their interactions with you, they felt as ... if you were beating up on them,Ž it says. For example, when the project director raised legitimate financial concerns about the project and the appearance of the building, you went over his head to the Secretary of the Department and had him removed from the project.Ž At another point, Hawkes reportedly ordered the courts deputy marshal to buy him vinegar so he could clean his personal coffee pot. The deputy marshal refused, but you demanded that you be shown in writing why she could not buy you a bottle of vinegar,Ž the report says. But the accusations in the report go far beyond the actual construction of the building. Investigators charged that Hawkes ordered the destruction of a “ ling cabinet “ lled with documents related to the construction of the building, including correspondence between the marshal and judges and documents related to the selection process for the architect and contractors for the court.Report: Hawkes badgered employees, misused post Sopchoppy4thofJulyVendorBoothAgreement11 A.M. to 10 P.M., Monday, July 4, 2011 Myron B.

Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 26, 2011 www.thewakullanews.com Teachers: Please visit TheWakullaNews.com for links to FREE NIE curriculum Into the Wild Abridgment: Chapter TwelvePreviously, Firepaw overheard a conversation that made him realize Ravenpaws life was in terrible danger, and Ravenpaw revealed the truth about Tigerclaws role in Redtails death. Graypaw padded in at dawn. Come on,Ž he mewed. Lets go visit Brindlefaces new kits.Ž At last, something to celebrate. Firepaw and Graypaw trotted toward the nursery. Whitestorm guarded the entrance. One at a time,Ž he meowed. You go,Ž Firepaw offered. Bluestar came outside. Come to see ThunderClans newest warriors?Ž she asked. When youve “ nished, come see me.Ž Yes, Bluestar,Ž Firepaw mewed. Here was a chance to speak to Bluestar alone. Graypaw crawled out of the nursery. Theyre cute,Ž he mewed. Im off to “ nd fresh-kill.Ž Firepaw purred good-bye and squeezed through the entrance. Four kits huddled in Brindlefaces nest, eyes shut tight. How are you feeling?Ž Firepaw whispered. Tired,Ž answered Brindleface. But the kits are healthy.Ž He touched noses with Brindleface, then made his way out into the clearing. Bluestar was waiting, Longtail at her side. Come inside,Ž she meowed. Longtail stood. The Clan leader looked at him. Ill be safe with Firepaw,Ž she meowed. Longtail sat again. Firepaw padded through her den entrance. This was the perfect moment to tell his leader his fears about Tigerclaw. I can still smell the stench of ShadowClan,Ž Bluestar murmured. I hoped never to see the day when our enemy broke into the heart of ThunderClan. At least with Tigerclaw as deputy, ThunderClan may still be able to defend itself.Ž Firepaws heart plummeted. Bluestar continued. He is one of the bravest cats I have ever fought alongside.Ž Firepaw could not tell Bluestar his suspicions about Tigerclaw. Not when she looked to Tigerclaw to protect the Clan. He would have to save Ravenpaw himself. Bluestars next words were quiet. Brokenstar and his Clan will return.Ž We fought him off. We can do it again,Ž Firepaw insisted. True.Ž Bluestar acknowledged. StarClan will honor your courage. I am tired now. Off you go.Ž Firepaw made his way toward his den but was stopped by a yowl from the nursery. Frostfur sprinted into the clearing, tail bristling. Someone has taken my kits!Ž Tigerclaw bounded to her. Search the camp! Whitestorm, stay where you are. Warriors, patrol the camp boundary! Apprentices, search every den!Ž Firepaw rushed to the nearest den. Empty. There was no sign of the kits. He spotted Yellowfang, pushing her way through an unguarded part of the wall. She must have found a scent. By the time he reached the wall, she had gone. No kit-scent, just the bitter smell of fear. What was Yellowfang afraid of? Tigerclaws yowl sounded from the bushes. The cats raced over. Firepaw nosed forward and saw Tigerclaw standing over a motionless bundle of fur. Spottedleaf! Bluestar leaned over the medicine cat. She has been killed by a warrior blow,Ž she meowed. A piercing yowl from the back of the crowd. Yellowfang is gone!Ž Yellowfang has killed Spottedleaf and taken my kits!Ž screeched Frostfur. I knew she was a traitor,Ž hissed Tigerclaw. Firepaw couldnt believe what he was hearing. Could Yellowfang have killed Spottedleaf? Rain began to fall. Bluestar meowed, If Yellowfang killed Spottedleaf and stole Frostfurs kits, she must be hunted down. But a storm is coming and I will not risk more lives. If ShadowClan has our kits, Brokenstar wants them as hostages to force us to let him hunt in our territory. As soon as the storm has passed, a patrol will follow Yellowfang.Ž She looked at her deputy. Id like to discuss our plans with you.Ž Tigerclaw stalked toward Bluestars den. Bluestar glanced at Firepaw, signaling that she wanted to speak to him. Firepaw skirted the mourning cats and followed her inside Spottedleafs den. Where is Yellowfang?Ž Bluestar meowed urgently. She went through the camp boundary. Do you think she killed Spottedleaf and took the kits?Ž I dont know,Ž Bluestar admitted. I want you to bring her back„alive.Ž Youre not sending Tigerclaw?Ž Firepaw asked. Tigerclaw is a great warrior, but if he thinks he can reassure the Clan with Yellowfangs dead body, thats what hell do.Ž Bluestar looked stern. If Yellowfang is a traitor, I will kill her. But I will not let an innocent cat die. Go at once!Ž Thunder rolled as Firepaw dashed out into the clearing. His ears pricked as he heard Frostfur and Speckletail nearby. Yellowfang must have had help,Ž Speckletail growled. Youve heard what Tigerclaw said about Ravenpaw. Perhaps he had something to do with it.Ž Firepaws fur prickled. He would “ nd Yellowfang, then help Ravenpaw. Firepaw!Ž Firepaw relaxed as he realized it was Graypaw. Ive been looking for you!Ž mewed his friend. Where are you going?Ž Firepaw decided to tell the truth. Bluestar asked me to bring Yellowfang back. She wants to “ nd the truth.Ž Lightning lit the trees around them. In the dazzling light, Firepaw glimpsed Frostfur chasing Ravenpaw away from the nursery, her face twisted with fury. Whats that about?Ž Graypaw mewed. Ravenpaws time had run out. Firepaw needed Graypaws help. Ravenpaws in danger,Ž he meowed. We have to take him somewhere Tigerclaw wont “ nd him.Ž Graypaw stared at him. What about Barley?Ž You mean take him to Twolegplace?Ž Firepaws ears twitched. That might be the best idea.Ž Come on!Ž meowed Graypaw. They found Ravenpaw huddled inside their den. Were taking you to Barley,Ž Firepaw whispered. Youll be safe there.Ž Firepaw led the way toward Fourtrees. Rain poured down through the leaves. Why do we need to get Ravenpaw away?Ž panted Graypaw. Firepaw explained that Ravenpaw had seen Tigerclaw murder Redtail. Why would Tigerclaw do that?Ž Graypaw protested. Maybe he thought Bluestar would make him deputy,Ž Firepaw suggested. He wants to get rid of Ravenpaw. Hes been hinting to everyone that hes a traitor. But Ravenpawll be safe with Barley.Ž They reached the end of WindClans territory. We cant take you farther, Ravenpaw,Ž mewed Firepaw. We have to “ nd Yellowfang before the storm passes. Ill make sure everyone knows you didnt betray ThunderClan.Ž What if Tigerclaw comes looking for me?Ž Ravenpaws voice was small. Firepaw met his gaze. He wont. Ill tell him youre dead.Ž Visit Warriorcats.com for more information on the WARRIORS series!

As the tradition spread, May 20, 1868, was made the official Decoration Day. On that day, 5,000 people gathered at Arlington National Cemetery to decorate the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers. Over time, Decoration Day turned into Memorial Day in honor of every soldier who had died while serving the nation. In 1971, Congress made Memorial Day official and set it for the last Monday in May. Today, thousands of people celebrate Memorial Day. Many attend services and decorate soldiers’ graves with flags and flowers.

By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netFive couples drove their Model T automobiles through Wakulla last week as part of their Gulf Coast Tour.Ž These tourists … Bill and Nellie Howell of Arkansas, Ted and Linda Kyle of Kansas, Mike and Brenda Bender of Oklahoma, Nick and Connie Nicholas of Colorado, and Duane and Kathy Schwab of Kansas … are traveling just for fun. They began on the Natchez Trace, went through New Orleans, were detoured because of rising ” oodwaters in Mississippi, and passed through Wakulla County on May 19 on their way to Midway. The travelers plan to make 4,000 miles in 10 days … going a maximum of 45 mph. The Model Tourists are in different Model T clubs, but like to drive their cars a little further than to go get ice cream. These are go cars, not show cars,Ž explained Mike Bender. The Model Ts were manufactured from 1913 to 1926. One of them … a black coupe … is completely original, while the other four have had some minor restoration work. The cars run on regular gas, and get about 20 miles per gallon. The owners “ x their own vehicles. Bender said some of the best parts of their trip so far include the Naval Museum in Pensacola, the wildlife and countryside, and lots and lots of raw oysters.Ž The group has already toured such regions as the Blue Ridge Mountains, and plans on visiting New England, Canada and Alaska in the future. Bender was very complimentary of Wakulla County, especially of the facilities at Hudson Park, where they stopped to relax.Model T-ourists visit Wakulla ORIGINAL T: The black Model T, above, is owned by Nick and Connie Nicholas, of West Pueblo, Colo. The car is completely original, and has never been restored. Brenda Bender, of Tulsa Okla., rests at Hudson Park. An ad from 1914 for a Model T.ADCLASSIX.COMBill Howell of Mt.
