By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netAs of June 1, Wakulla County no longer has a Public Safety Department Director position. Former Director Scott McDermid approached interim County Administrator Tim Barden last week about stepping away from the position, Barden said. McDermid returned to his position previously held as a paramedic supervisor with Emergency Medical Services. He will report to EMS Director Fran Councill. The position of public safety director will not be “ lled and no longer exists, Barden said. He added that there were numerous factors at play that led to this result. We were looking at doing away with the layers that Ben (former county administrator Pingree) had created,Ž Barden said. The County Commission had expressed a desire on numerous occasions to shrink government. There had been discussions about possibly consolidating EMS and fire into one department at previous meetings. A report by the sheriff was also discussed, although some commissioners have said in the past they werent sure how that all began. The sheriff was and still is, according to Barden, performing a study on “ re and EMS and possible cost savings by merging the Public Safety Department with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce. After firefighters and emergency medical personnel heard of this study, they requested a town hall meeting and a chance to present ways they have already cut and ideas for more cost savings. A workshop was held on May 26 to give “ re and EMS personnel their opinion and at that workshop the main idea that circulated was eliminating the Public Safety Director position.

Russell pitched the idea at a workshop with county commissioners last week, saying there could be a cost-savings of $125,000 in salary and bene“ ts. According to a poll of members of Wakulla County United Fire Fighters Association (WCUFFA), Russell said members … including both paid and volunteers … were unanimous in voicing their opinion that the position of Public Safety Director was unnecessary.Continued on Page 2ABrock weighs changing his vote to hire EdwardsBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netCommissioner Alan Brock, who cast the deciding vote to start over in the search for a new county administrator, is considering calling the matter back up and changing his vote. Hes considering voting to hire David Edwards. Yes, I am considering reconsidering,Ž Brock said in a phone interview. He said he still hadnt completely decided. Edwards was the frontrunner for the job, and he had three “ rm votes to get it with commissioners Randy Merritt, Jerry Moore and Brock. But Brock was concerned about Chairman Mike Stewarts reaction to omissions on Edwards “ nancial disclosure forms that indicated he had some tax troubles in Georgia, his former home. Stewart indicated at the meeting on May 16 that he felt Edwards was being less than truthful.

McDermid approached Barden shortly after that workshop. Commissioner Mike Stewart said, He could see the writing on the wall.Ž Stewart said it was inevitable that the department would be reorganized and the position would be done away with at some point. He added that positions that arent absolutely necessary need to be eliminated. I was never a proponent of that position,Ž Stewart said. He added that in the current budget crisis, the county has to shrink. Stewart said in the future, once a new “ re chief is hired, he would like to see the “ re chief supervise EMS and “ re. However, for now, the EMS director and “ re chief will report directly to the county administrator.Continued from Page 1AWhile other suggestions were made, especially about the need to restore funding for fire protection, at the end of the workshop, held Thursday, May 26, Public Safety Director Scott McDermid said he agreed with what had been said. Other than taking me out in the parking lot and putting a bullet in me, Im all for it,Ž he said. He apparently resigned from the job the next day, Friday, May 27, and was to return to his previous job in the ambulance service as a paramedic, effective June 1. McDermid had been a lightning rod for criticism from “ re“ ghters, and the din was growing. He was blamed for his handling of various issues, from the lack of volunteers because of the increasingly rigorous training to become certi“ ed, the lack of bunker gear for some volunteers, and his handling of personnel issues. Russell told commissioners that a majority of WCUFFA members, 54 percent, supported a strong fire chief who reported directly to the county administrator. That number was only 36 percent for a Fire-EMS chief who reported to the administrator. An overwhelming 91 percent felt the “ re chief should be treated as a department head and report directly to the county administrator, Russell said. The workshop was initially called to let “ re and EMS personnel give their views on cost-savings, as well as a proposal … which seems largely dead now … in which “ re and EMS could be consolidated under the sheriff. The main thrust of the workshop appeared to be a dire message from Lt. Kurt Hindle about the severity of the need for new equipment. Part of the problem is that, last year, as a cost-saving measure, commissioners moved fire salaries from revenues collected from the Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU) … basically a “ re tax placed on property owners tax bills. Money that had gone toward “ re equipment was now being used, in effect, to pay “ re“ ghters. Lt. Hindle warned that departments have no bunker gear reserve, that hundreds of thousands of dollars will need to be spent on narrow-band radios, and that the departments are down three trucks … including one truck thats in service 20 years after its service life. He also made the case of a need for another “ re station in Wakulla Gardens, which would cost upwards of $200,000. Because there is no station within “ ve miles of the densely populated subdivision, “ re insurance there is more than twice what residents pay who are closer to “ re stations. Hindle said that, to recover from some of those losses and begin making improvements, MSBU funding needed to be $97.50 for homes and 8 cents a square foot for commercial property. That amount of charge would bring in $1.4 million to the county and restore the status quo. At a minimum, MSBUs should be set at $85 per home and 7 cents a square foot for commercial. People dont like paying taxes,Ž said Commissioner Randy Merritt, but my feeling is nobody minds paying for a fire truck or an ambulance.Ž I agree,Ž Chairman Mike Stewart said. In fact, Merritt said he fully supported increasing MSBU funding to pay for “ re and EMS services … and reducing property taxes an equal amount. Continued from Page 1A Commissioner Lynn Artz, who favored candidate, Richard Reade, who had dropped out of the running, reportedly over concern about local controversies, made a motion to re-start the search … and Brock went along with Stewart in voting for it. Brock could bring the matter back up for reconsideration at the boards June 6 meeting. Right now, Im undecided,Ž Brock said. Edwards, he said, was his “ rst choice as administrator throughout the process. He said he felt Edwards, with his level of experience, is exactly what the county is looking for at this point. My biggest concern is I dont want to disrupt relationships on the county commission,Ž he said, adding: I dont want another year of a chairman and county administrator feuding.Ž As a parliamentary matter, Brock could make a motion for reconsideration, since he was on the prevailing side of the 3-2 vote. Continued on Page 2AMost adults know what Memorial Day is all about,Ž he said, thats why youre here. But our children need to be taught.Ž Some suggestions he offered were as simple as having kids make a U.S. flag out of construction paper and hang it in a window. He also urged people in the audience to observe a national moment of remembrance at 3 p.m. that day. Veterans Service Of“ cer J.D. Johnson re” ected that more than 6,000 soldiers have died in the recent decade of war … 4,452 in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and 1,582 in Operation Enduring Freedom. Remember those who go into combat whole, but who come back fragmented, broken,Ž Johnson said. I believe it is our responsibility to put them back together.Ž County Commissioner Jerry Moore spoke of giving thanks to veterans for the sacri“ ce they have made. And, at one point in the proceeding, went to the podium to recognize a group of veterans in the audience who came in late, dressed in bikers leathers. Former commissioner Howard Kessler also spoke and told of his 89-year-old father who marched with Pattons army through Europe. We all owe a debt of gratitude that is incomprehensible, that is impossible to express,Ž he said. School board member Becky Cook sang a number of songs, including Amazing Grace … and the crowd sang along. The ceremony ended with Miller playing Taps on his trumpet. It was the “ rst time the ceremony had been held at the new community center. For the past several decades the ceremony was held at the courthouse, where the swelter of heat often made it uncomfortable, and the noise of passing vehicles on the highway often interrupted the ceremony. Despite the air conditioning offered at the community center, some in the audience preferred the courthouse. David Westmark said after the ceremony ended that, despite the comforts, he preferred the ritual of the courthouse.After the Memorial Day observance, Sheriff David Harvey was going through the foyer and saw Charlie Creel, who announced last week he will be seeking the sheriffs post, and the two shared a handshake. Creel asked about comments Harvey made during the ceremony about a recent trip to London and getting to see the bunker where Winston Churchill endured the nightly airstrikes from German bombers during World War II. Then the two men began talking about their fathers serving in World War II. It turned out both mens fathers took part in the Normandy invasion, and both had fought in the First Infantry Division, also known as Big Red One.… William SnowdenMcDermid out as public safety directorEnding position brought up at workshopBrock weighs changing his vote Memorial DayHarvey, Creel “ nd common ground in their dads serviceLocal servicemen who have died: Sergeant Javier J.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 2, 2011 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By JENNIFER RAYMONDjraymond@thewakullanews.netThe county commission voted unanimously to move forward with the request for proposals for a single hauler for solid waste collection at its May 16 meeting. The RFP would include non-residential collections, residential curbside solid waste and recyclable materials pick up. Whoever is the chosen hauler, they would also take over operations at the countys transfer station, County Attorney Heather Encinosa said. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said it would be up to that vendor to comply with all Florida rules and regulations. They have to be in compliance,Ž Fleming said. Commissioner Randy Merritt said he thinks the bids are going to be high. Commissioner Jerry Moore said he ultimately would not vote for a single hauler. I dont want to be under the gun of a single hauler,Ž Moore said. Encinosa said in the RFP, acceptable escalations of prices have been outlined. Stewart pointed out that even if the county goes with a mandatory garbage pickup, it will still have to charge an assessment for the maintenance of the three land“ lls it owns. Fleming said, We own the three land“ lls in the county for life. The cost will never go down.Ž He added that the county needs to put a funding source in place for the future. The commission then discussed giving a preference to local vendors. That preference is 5 percent. It agreed to include that in the RFP. Commissioner Mike Stewart said he is curious to see what number comes back for garbage pickup. Im for the $112, have been and will be,Ž Stewart said. He added that he would only go along with curbside if the price was extremely low. The commission voted unanimously to advertise for a RFP. In other business, the commission was told that the county had been accepted into Floridas Northwest Rural Area of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC) which includes neighboring counties Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jackson, Holmes, Liberty and Washington, as well as, the area within the City of Freeport known as Opportunity Florida. The executive order adding Wakulla to the list was signed by Gov. Rick Scott on May 5. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said the addition was possible because of the hard work of the county staff, including Of“ ce of Special Projects Director Jennifer Langston, as well as the county attorney and her of“ ce. Barden said more grant opportunities will now be available to the county, as well as lower grant match requirements and priority eligibility for certain transportation programs. Floridas RACECs are regions comprised of rural communities that have been adversely affected by severe or chronic economic distress, extraordinary economic events or natural disasters. The county lost several employees the last couple months and another has joined that list. Wakulla County Health Department Administrator Mark Lundberg is retiring. Director of Environmental Health Pad Juarez will serve as interim administrator. Also, Scott Joyner was appointed library services director with the departure of Doug Jones. The next county commission meeting will be held on June 6.COUNTY COMMISSIONBoard to move ahead with single hauler for solid wasteBy CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netThe Lunch and Learn series, organized by the Wakulla County Democratic Executive Committee, was supposed to be a non-partisan event, according to R.H. Carter, executive director of the senior center. The first event, advertised as a recap of the Florida 2011 legislative session, was held on Thursday, May 26, and entitled: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, and How it Will Impact Wakulla. The tone of the event, though, prompted Carter to cancel future Lunch and Learns. In a phone call the next day, Carter expressed disappointment at the partisan tone of the event and said his concern was for the senior center. Both Rachel Sutz Pienta, president of the WCDEC, and County Commissioner Alan Brock, who acted as moderator, expressed disappointment that Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, was not able to appear on the panel as originally planned. Coley cancelled her appearance at the last minute to be at the Dosier School for Boys in Marianna, which is being closed as part of the states budget cutting measures. Brock said after the event that the tone would have been more balanced if Coley would have been able to share her opinion. As it was, the panel included two Democratic House members … state Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, D-Tallahassee, and Rep. Alan Williams, DQuincy … as well as Ben Wilcox of the Florida League of Women Voters, and Barbara DeVane, president of the Capital Alliance for Retired Americans. Rep. Vasilinda said that the legislatures decisions were not good for the state of Florida or for Wakulla County. She said that there are three important issues that Florida faces that were not adequately addressed in the session: Floridas high unemployment rate, high foreclosure rate, and low high school graduation rate. Vasilinda discussed the new requirement that state employees provide 3 percent of their own retirement, and said that a 3 percent loss in salary would translate to a decrease in revenue that small businesses take in. Vasilinda expressed skepticism that Gov. Rick Scott could create 700,000 jobs in seven years as he promised on the campaign trail. Rep. Williams called Floridas current situation depressing.Ž Williams lamented a lack of leadership from those in public of“ ce, and chastised Gov. Scott for celebratingŽ with the people who elected him instead of examining the budget. Williams noted that several Wakulla-speci“ c projects appeared in the state budget, including $2.5 million for resurfacing roads and $50,000 for adults with disabilities. The projects survived Gov. Scotts $615 million budget cuts. Williams also pointed out that none of the Wakulla projects were on Tax Watchs list of budget turkeys. Williams was distressed that BP might be allowed to drill off the coast of Florida, considering that tourism is the number one source of revenue for Florida. Wilcox, of the Florida League of Women Voters, criticized anti-voter lawŽ passed by the legislature, despite information that 2010 Florida elections were fair. The new law makes it more dif“ cult for citizens to register, vote or have their votes counted. Wilcox said the League of Women Voters and other similar organizations must now abide by burdensome restrictions.Ž LOWV must register with the state, provide a list of volunteers, and have the volunteers swear to obey Florida laws. Each voter registration form will be numbered and tracked by the state, and each voter registration form that is not turned in to the supervisor of elections within 48 hours of being “ lled out will result in a $50 “ ne. Early voting will only be open eight days, not 15. Although polls may stay open for 12 hours each day … compared to the original required eight hours … they only have to stay open for six hours. Wilcox illustrated the potential problems these regulations could cause by pointing out that in 2008, Gov. Crist signed an executive order to keep polls open for longer because people were still waiting in line. Voters who move out of their county are no longer able to change their address at the polls; they must now use provisional ballots. Provisional ballots, which are counted at the discretion of the supervisor of elections, are only counted 50 percent of the time, WIlcox said. Wilcox questioned the motives of implementing these regulations at a time when much of the state is being deregulated. Before introducing DeVane, Brock noted that Wakulla County has now been declared a Northwest Rural Area of Economic Concern, which will give the county more opportunities for grants. These opportunities will help us do more with less,Ž Brock said. DeVanes words set a strongly partisan tone. DeVane, a Democrat and a lobbyist for Florida Now, said that she represents women, workers and minoritiesŽ … people who do not believe they have a lot of power. DeVane called herself an organizer, and said she wanted to inspire her audience to act. In Washington, Those idiots are trying to take away your Medicare and your Social Security,Ž she said. DeVane encouraged the audience to attend the June 20th public hearings on redistricting the state.Lunch and Learn, sponsored by Democrats, seen as partisan CAROLE TOLERBarbara DeVane at the podium as Reps. Alan Williams and Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda and County Commissioner Alan Brock listen.Four qualify for city commissionBy CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netSopchoppy City Hall elections will be held June 14. There are four qualified candidates and three seats available. Incumbents Richard Harden, Colleen Skipper and Jim Stokley will run, joined by challenger Aginita Rosier. Harden has enjoyed serving on the city council for the past six years and helping others. Hardens goals are to help the economy in Sopchoppy by utilizing Sopchoppys cultural assets, such as the Worm Gruntin Festival, Sopchoppy Opry, Fourth of July festival, organic food market and Blues Music Nights, and by encouraging city and civic partnerships. Mayor Skipper wishes to continue to serve the citizens of Sopchoppy. Skippers goals are to encourage industry, and she stated that Sopchoppy needs a business to come in and provide 10 to 15 jobs. She plans to improve the citys infrastructure, keep the “ re service in compliance with the National Fire Incident Reporting System, and provide transportation for the elderly … there are funds for the latter, Skipper said, if Sopchoppy networks with Tallahassee. Stokley likes to serve the people. It certainly isnt for the money,Ž he joked. Stokley wants to help the economy by promoting business growth. He also said he considered storm water drainage runoff to be an important issue for Sopchoppy. Rosier saw an opportunity to make a difference, and wants to increase the communitys awareness of whats going on. Rosiers goals are to improve the quality of life for all in Sopchoppy by protecting tax dollars, updating the citys technology resources and maintaining the integrity of the citys infrastructure. Rosier said she wants to work with the people of Sopchoppy to help it continue to be one of the best places in the county to live.Ž SOPCHOPPY NOTICE OF REPLAT OF LOTSThe City St. Marks Commission will consider the application for a Minor Re-Plat of Plat 02-4S-01E-070-05692-000 to reconfigure in said subdivision, Block G, Lots 1,2,15 and 16 and has scheduled a Public Meeting regarding the following before the City Commission on June 9, 2011 beginning at 7:00 pm.

The retired individuals promptly noted that they would take those donationsŽ as their children were already raised and out of the home. Whether you donateŽ your lingering supply to a teen-free neighbor, or simply dump it, here are some tips to navigate summer with your teen. First, lets debunk summer. There is nothing magical about it, except that teens tend to have more free time and there is a strong correlation between free time and risk-taking among teens. This could mean riding their bike into the pool, walking through the drive-thru, attention-getting laughter at just the wrong time, or any of the strange or silly or dangerous kinds of things you may have done when you were a teen for the thrill of it.Ž It could also mean the temptation to experiment with alcohol, marijuana or sexual activity. Short of locking them up, there is no silver bullet to prevent any of the above. As parents of teens, we have a 100 percent chance of something going awry. It does not however, have to be as a result of a lack of planning. Plan 1. Throw out the left-over liquor bottles that are sitting around from the holiday parties. If theyre going to experiment, it will be with the stuff youre least likely to look at or touch. This also means old prescriptions and the cigarettes you might have quit a month ago. Also consider most Florida teens say when they drink they do so at another friends home. FACT: Among surveyed Wakulla teens who drank in the past 30 days, 59.4 percent of them say they drank at another persons home. There is a parent somewhere who hasnt gotten the memo. Its time for us to start talking to the parents of our friends and asking direct questions, such as, does my teen have access to alcohol in your home? Worst-case scenario is youll embarrass your teen. Lets just say it wont be the “ rst or last time. Plan 2. Prepare for boredom. Actually, dont fall victim to the Im boredŽ routine. Before you know it, theyll be calling you on the phone while youre at work asking to go to place A, with friend B, whom youve actually never met, but is a friend of friend C, whom you know quite well. And, oh, by the way, theyll be home before you get home and theyll keep their cell phone on. Dont get me wrong, I believe most teens are inherently honest and good … I am their biggest cheerleader. But Ive noticed they can smell weakness. If they can get their otherwise logical parent who normally would insist on all facts and details with 24 hour notice to budge in this one moment, the door is open for compromise. Work with your teen to make plans in advance and stick with the 24-hour notice rule for activity outside of the home. If friend B is really that important to your teen, theyll make plans within your guidelines. FACT: Among surveyed Wakulla teens who drank in the past 30 days, 39.4 percent report someone gave it to me,Ž and 26.5 percent report someone bought it for me.Ž Plan 3. A summer job is not a barrier to experimentation. In fact, in can be a gateway. Summer jobs are great for teaching responsibility, earning money, and other life lessons. Summer jobs can also result in relationships between your teen and older, legal drinking age individuals. Plan on talking to your teen about work relationships, new friends and your expectations of them while they are working for the summer, including curfews and work hours. Plan 4. Plan for fun and down time. Endless surveys of teenagers show that they are often more worried, more stressed and more over extended than any other teen generation that has come before them. Sleeping a few days away is not going to be the end of your bright-eyed, sassy teenager. Hanging aimlessly at the beach with an approved list of friends may be just what they need to decompress and refocus. Plan in advance for ways that you and your teenager can do just that … relax. There is no need for summer vacation to be any more onerous than any other period should be while raising teens. At the end of the day, were still a parent, and theyre still a teenager. Have a safe, well planned summer.

This is true, but I want to clarify that I do NOT live in Nevada; I live in Crawfordville and presently consult from an of“ ce in Tallahassee. I do periodically travel to Nevada to make live presentations. While Nevada is a gorgeous state, I have to say it cant compare with being at home in Wakulla County. If you would like to discuss this with me I can be reached at Charlieforsheriff@ gmail.com, P.O. Box 482, Crawfordville, Florida 32326, or 926-4712. Charlie Creel CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: An open letter to county commissioners: Dear commissioners, I applaud the decision to start over on the process of “ nding a new administrator for us in Wakulla County. I hope that we can “ nd a person with experience and formal training in county administration, who sees our natural resources and our caring population as assets. I recognize that the process is tedious and time-consuming for staff and for you, but it is important that our next administrator have both the necessary administrative training and experience, as well as the integrity and personality to handle this very important job. The Wakulla News reported that you will discuss the process at your June 6 meeting. Here are a few suggestions for your consideration: First, there should be a requirement for both prior governmental administrative experience and minimum formal training. Required experience should be for at least three or more years of supervisory experience in a Florida county system. Minimum formal training should include at least a bachelors degree and preferably a masters degree in public administration. To give commissioners some ” exibility, there might be provisions for substituting additional years of high level administrative experience for the masters degree. Second, any person presently living outside Wakulla County, who is being interviewed in person, should be reimbursed, at the state rate, for travel expenses for at least one interview. The process might be better if only the “ nal interview is in person, and any other interviews are via telephone or skype. There might also be provisions along the way to replace any ranked candidate, who happens to withdraw during the process, with the next highest ranked person. I hope the board can spend some time thinking carefully about how to judge whether or not a candidates resume indicates that his or her training and experience is adequate to perform each of the duties of administrator. I agree with Chairman Stewart, We need to take our time and get the right person.Ž The future of our county is too important to make a poor decision when we deserve the very best. Thank you for considering these ideas. I wish you well on the next round. Sincerely, Elinor Elfner 7 Gulf Breeze CourtEditor, The News: I would like to thank our local health care providers for generously donating their time … and for the compassion and commitment they showed for the health of our community … on Saturday, May 21. The residents of Wakulla County should know that seven clinicians and numerous nurses, medical assistants and other volunteers each donated up to “ ve hours of their time on a Saturday to provide free sports physicals for 222 student athletes. Many worked five hours straight without a break. Their goal was to keep local students from being denied an opportunity to play sports because they lack a family doctor, health insurance or the ability to pay. Dr. Andrea Plagge, Dr. Christine Chiu, Cartier Lammert, ARNP, Dr. David Keen, Valerie Russell, ARNP, Dr. Howard Kessler and Dr. Gene Charbonneau provided the medical examinations. Assisting in the clinic were Stephanie Eden“ eld, Karen Clevenger and Lynn Artz. Kris Whitten and Amy Peebles with the Wakulla County Health Department checked shot records and provided free vaccinations when needed. Volunteers staffing the stations for height, weight, pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and vision included Lori Lawhon, Mary Ellis, Christina Hatcher, Samanatha Allen, Elizabeth Rosa, Jim Hilyer, Chase Hilyer and Cartier Lammerts daughter. Volunteers helping with student checkin and paperwork review included Tanya English, Brian English, Letha Wells, David Willis, OQuinn Willis, Shannon Smith and Erica Bunch. Volunteers staf“ ng educational displays in the cafeteria included JoAnne Strickland, Faye Shephard, Kathy Asbell, Jennifer Leon, Sandy Porras-Guitierrez, Sandra Smith, Jennifer Brooks, Dick Urwick and Buddy Wells. Tanya English coordinated the event within the School District and worked with athletic directors and coaches to get the word out to local athletes. Lori Lawhon helped to set up the WHS Clinic in preparation. The following local practices were represented on Saturday and also contributed equipment and supplies: Tallahassee-Memorial Family Medicine, Wakulla Urgent Care & Diagnostic Center, Liberty Community Health Care and the Wakulla County Health Department. The willingness of these hard-working professionals to help our youth in their spare time was inspiring. I am deeply grateful to all involved. Lynn Artz Founder and Past-Chair Wakulla Health Care Task ForceEditor, The News: The recently derailed attempt at hiring a county administrator was symptomatic of a process that was ” awed from the start and demonstrated the current commissions misplaced priorities. By watering down the quali“ cations required for this very important position and by attempting to hire on the cheap, it should come as no surprise that the most quali“ ed applicant ultimately withdrew. The commission was left with two candidates whose primary appeal appeared to be that they were local and well known to the commissioners. Unfortunately, their areas of competence were not in county administration. County commissioner Jerry Moore routinely declares that government is the problem,Ž a curious statement from someone who spent a lot of money to get into government. Anyone who has been paying attention also would understand that the current economic collapse was largely due to the deregulation of “ nancial markets, combined with unsustainable tax cuts for the wealthy and an explosion of defense spending. The problem is not too much government but ineffective, corrupt government. I also suspect that Mr. Moores aversion to education and experience would evaporate quickly if he ever found himself in need of heart surgery. I doubt he would choose someone just because they were local and were willing to give him a bargain rate. While being a county administrator is not heart surgery, it is also not a task for amateurs. One needs speci“ c education and experience, as well as integrity, if one is to be entrusted with our countys budget and provide leadership. Let us begin this process again. Wakulla County deserves a county administrator who is experienced, quali“ ed and ethical.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 2, 2011 – Page 5ABy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 27 … If the focus of the 2011 budget was supposed to be jobs, the week that included the signing of the spending plan did seem to include a lot of talk about whether certain people would or could keep their positions. As Gov. Rick Scott signed a budget that will prompt payroll reductions across state government, but he promised would create private-sector employment opportunities, polls assessed the obstacles the governor faces in convincing Floridians to rehire him in a few years. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama seemed more likely to avoid getting a pink slip, at least from Floridas voters. At the same time, the Public Service Commission said goodbye to an involuntarily resigning executive director in the latest shake-up to hit the beleaguered agencies that regulates utilities. SCOTT SIGNS BUDGET, SLASHES AWAY Perhaps aware that the Legislatures budget was even more unpopular than he was -its approval rating was only at 24 percent, which made Scotts 29 percent “ gure look healthy by comparison -Scott signed the spending plan at the Villages but hacked deeply into the blueprint, slicing everything from suspect college construction projects to $12 million in funding for the National Veterans Homeless Support Group. But “ rst, Scotts administration set off a ker” uf” e about who was allowed to witness him wield the budget ax. Familiar with Scotts rules about who can and cant be somewhere, reporters on the scene say the governors bodyguards asked deputies to remove audience members with antiScott signs from the crowd. Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU, promptly put out a statement blasting the move. While it may be legal to conduct public business at a private, partisan event, it is inconsistent with the spirit of open and transparent government that Floridians deserve,Ž Simon said. Scotts press secretary later denied to a political website that the governors men were involved in having the protestors removed, but a reporter from the St. Petersburg Times stood by his account in a blog post. Once the crowd was organized to Scotts … or the sheriffs of“ ces … liking, the governor proceeded to compliment lawmakers on their hard work putting the budget together before blasting some of their decisions as examples of short-sided, frivolous, wasteful spending programsŽ and using his veto pen to rip a record amount of it to shreds. Scott called for the money to go to schools instead … a message he repeated Friday on his weekly radio address. I am con“ dent that all of us can agree that school funding is far more important than spending those dollars on alligator marketing, or boat racing, or anything else that the Tallahassee insiders seem to think is so important,Ž Scott said. Lawmakers, who had spent some of their time taking shots at Scotts education program before trying to shovel some more money into schools, were shocked. The Governor communicated numerous priorities during session, and we did our best to accommodate him,Ž sniped House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park. It would have been helpful if the Governor had shared this new found emphasis with us before the budget was “ nalized.Ž Meanwhile, state agencies started to outline job cuts as a result of the budget. The Department of Juvenile Justice sliced 1,200 jobs from its payroll … 500 of which are vacant … and the Department of Children and Families said it will shed 500 workers in addition to closing out 280 empty positions. PSC DIRECTOR OUT The Public Service Commission will also shave 27 jobs from its workforce, but the most surprising personnel change came at the top, when Executive Director Tim Devlin resigned under pressure for reasons that are known to a few, including PSC Chairman Art Graham, who asked Devlin to step down. Out of respect for the executive director, I think thats a private matter,Ž Graham said. Graham did deny an article in The Miami Herald that said Graham had ousted Devlin after talking with Florida Power & Light attorney Ken Hoffman. Further complicating the issue was Grahams suggestion that the PSC name General Counsel Curt Kiser as interim executive director, an idea that other commissioners rejected. They instead decided to divvy up some of the duties previously held by Devlin, a 35-year veteran of the agency who became executive director in January 2010 in the wake of a series of scandals that rocked the commission, between Kiser and Deputy Executive Director Charles Hill. POLLS: OBAMA UP, SCOTT DOWN, NELSON SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN The bad news for Rick Scott was that his disapproval rating kept climbing to 57 percent and his approval rating slipped down to 29 percent. The good news is that voters who think they disapprove of him for a given reason might be wrong. A new poll from Quinnipiac University showed the wrong direction in Scotts poll numbers, but also showed that only 42 percent of voters were aware that Scott had honored his pledge to not raise taxes in this years budget. Still, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute: Theres no way to spin these numbers that theyre good for the governor.Ž President Barack Obama, whose re-election hopes could hinge on winning Florida, got better news: His approval rating is up seven points, at 51 percent. Fellow Democrat and U. S. Senate Bill Nelson holds a lead of at least 20 points over each of his three main Republican rivals in polling for 2012 … but two-third of voters say they dont know who theyll vote for. The poll of 1,196 registered voters had a 2.8 percentage point margin of error. STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov. Rick Scott signs a 2011-12 budget plan that now weighs in at around $69 billion at The Villages, slicing $615 million from the spending plan using his line-item veto authority. QUOTE OF THE WEEK : Where Im from, rainwater can be caught with a $2 bucket.Ž -Gov. Rick Scott on his decision to veto a $250,000 line item funding a plan to collect rainwater at state prisonsSpecial to The NewsWakulla County EMS has extended its exceptionally long stint of No De“ cit InspectionsŽ by achieving their 17th straight rating. Wednesday, May 26, the State of Florida Emergency Medical Service Department made an unannounced visit to the County EMS buildings. The State inspection is extremely detailed and takes approximately four hours to complete, and consists of a full equipment inventory from bulk storage climate control to all ambulances equipment inventory; all items required on an ambulance have to be accounted for. In addition to looking item by item at EMS records and vehicle status, the inspector also examines administrative “ les for training and administrative requirements. Personnel are to be commended for their knowledge of equipment and supplies locations,Ž the state report said. The Wakulla County EMS Service is being run ef“ ciently and effectively with professionalism and commitment to the citizens and visitors of the County.Ž This inspection is the 17th consecutive No De“ citŽ inspection awarded to Wakulla County EMS. The paramedics, EMTs, and their Supervisor Marvin Walters deserve the recognition of their ongoing efforts of being consistent, conducting daily check-ins of their vehicles, and their educational training,Ž said EMS Director Fran Councill. Special acknowledgment is due to crew members Joey Tillman, Jarrod Duggar, James Osteen and Steve Pigott who were on duty and participated in this inspection, Councill said.Budget and polls focus on jobsWEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)The Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce is hosting several “ rearms programs at the WCSO Training Center and Shooting Range. € The May and June Personal Protection and Firearms Safety Courses are full but another class has been scheduled for Saturday, July 9 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $60 for non-members and $50 for members.

Of course, it would not have done much good for God to have given His words, and then to have not preserved them. Those of us who use the King James Version believe that God not only gave His words, but that He also preserved His words for all generations. Jesus said in Matthew 24:35, Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.Ž It also says in Psalm 100:5, “His truth endureth to all generations.” This means that the Hebrew texts and Greek texts that existed many hundreds of years ago when the King James Version was translated were the texts that God preserved. It does not make any sense that God would have allowed better manuscripts to be hidden away in caves or in ancient trash heaps only to be discovered two thousand years later. Any older manuscripts that were hidden away in caves or uncovered in some ancient dump site were the ones that were discarded and were obviously not preserved for every generation. The philosophy of modern theologians that they are going to find the mistakes in the Bible and keep giving us better and better translations leads to thinking that the Bible is not authoritative because it must still have some flaws that need to be uncovered. It is more consistent with the teachings of Jesus to take one translation that has followed the best possible philosophy of translation and to stick with it. Since God gave the words and not just the ideas, it is best to have a translation method wherei n the translators followed a word-byword translation wherever possible. The King James Version satisfies this requirement. As Bible believers we know that the Bible does not change, and we do not need to have modern theologians tell us what corrections need to be made. By using the King James version of 1611 we are giving our testimony to the fact that Gods Word does not change. By using the King James Version of the Bible, we are using words that will still be the same 400 years from now.NEW TESTAMENT BIBLE CHURCH meets on Sunday from 12N-1PM at The Works coffee shop conference room, 27F Azalea Drive.

Danielle Whiting, Zac Boone, Nathan Cushard, Anthony Modzelewski and Rian Diehl.Elementary students asked to participate in reading programWakulla elementary schools have teamed together to encourage their students to participate in the Million Minute Summer. The goal is for all elementary students to read 20 minutes each day for at least 25 days during the summer. If all elementary students from Crawfordville, Medart, Shadeville, and Riversink participate, then the million minute goal will be reached. Research shows that students can lose as much as 3 months progress in reading during the summer months … unless they keep reading during their time off. Reading activities can also include reading comics, reading stories from a website, reading food labels at home or at the supermarket, reading road and advertising signs while traveling in the car, etc. Parents reading aloud to their children counts too. To participate in the program, students will read and keep track of their minutes by completing a form with blank stars on it. Each star represents 10 minutes of reading, and students will record their minutes by coloring in a star for every 10 minutes spent reading. Parents will need to initial each star. The form will be given to students during the last week of school. Students return the forms during the “ rst week of the new school year in August. Minutes will be tallied and announced during the following week to determine if the million minute goal was met. The Million Minute Read is a way that parents can encourage their children to read during the summer and to participate in a community effort of meeting the Million Minute Summer goal. Parent Tips for Summertime Reading: 1. Take your child to the library and help your child pick books that are not too difficult. Use the 5 finger rule. Have your child read a few pages from the book and raise one “ nger for each dif“ cult word. The book is OK for independent reading if there are 5 words or fewer that give them trouble on each page. Consider reading the book to your child if it seems dif“ cult for them to read it independently. 2. Ask your children questions about what they are reading. 3. Have your children read different types of books and materials to expose them to a variety of writing. Some children, especially boys, prefer non-“ ction books. 4. Take control of the TV. Set aside a time to turn off the TV, and encourage reading as a free-time activity. 5. Encourage your child to read and reread familiar books. 6. Read labels with your child that you “ nd on food, toys, clothes, cereal boxes, candy wrappers, etc. Read signs that you see while traveling such as road signs, advertisements, restaurants, businesses, and signs on vehicles.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 2, 2011 – Page 9Asports news and team viewsSportsWakulla U12 soccer team participated in the Tallahassee Spring Classic Recreational Tournament hosted by Warner Soccer on May 21. This was the “ rst tournament for the team. The team had been placed in the higher bracket for the tournament due to their success in the recreational season which ended May 14. The tournament consisted of three games against recreational teams from clubs as far away as Jacksonville. Wakulla U12 started the tournament under wet conditions against TOF Quincy who proved to be the toughest team in the division. The “ rst game ended in a 4-8 loss to the Quincy team despite a valiant effort by the defense to defend the goal. The second game ended in a 1-1 tie against Capital Soccer Association. This game was tied up by a penalty kick due to a hand ball in the box in the last few minutes of the game. The “ nal game of the tournament was played against the Warner Soccer Comets. This game gave the Wakulla team the opportunity to seal second place in the U12 Division for the tournament. The scoring strikers in the tournament were Lucas Briggs, Dillon McCall and Jordan Trussell. Scott Lloyd, Caleb Rivers and Steven Gehrke held the mid“ eld. The defense of Madeline Gehrke, Karlee Strickland and Alex Smythe were just the wall needed to help the team secure second place. Hunter Busen and Alex Smythe as goalkeepers were tenacious. The team ended the season with the tournament and will start a new season in August. By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla War Eagles football team had a chance to show fans a preview of the upcoming season at this years jamboree. Last Thursday, May 26, in Gene Cox stadium, Wakulla played a two-quarter game against the Rickards Raiders and then against the Godby Cougars. Rickards started off with the ball, but failed to make more than one “ rst down, thanks to War Eagle CJ Roberts. Then it was Wakullas turn at their 37 yard line. On the “ rst play, Quarterback Caleb Stevens threw a touchdown pass to Tonio Dowdry. Conner Smiths kick was good for the extra point. On the Raiders next possession, they scored a touchdown. The War Eagles blocked the Rickards extra point, but a penalty on Wakulla gave the Raiders another shot. They made the extra point on the second attempt, tying the game at 7 7. Wakulla started off at their own 25 yard line and “ rst down plays by Marshan Godbolt, Evan McCoy and Demetrius Landry brought the War Eagles to “ rst and goal. Godbolt took the handoff from QB James Douin and scored. Smiths extra point brought the score to 14 7. After unsuccessful possessions by each team, the Raiders had the ball at their own 25 yard line. On one of the “ rst plays, War Eagle Luke Taylor forced a Raiders fumble. Godbolt recovered the ball, placing it in War Eagle hands deep inside Raiders territory. QB Stevens handed off to McCoy, who ran 26 yards for the touchdown. After Smiths extra point the War Eagles were up 21 7. The Raiders answered with a touchdown, bringing them behind Wakulla by only seven points. The War Eagles fumbled on their next possession, giving Rickards the ball at their own 25. On the Raiders second down, Demonte Morris tipped the ball, making the Raiders pass incomplete. On the third down, the Raiders QB was sacked by Roberts. The “ nal Raiders play was unsuccessful, and the game ended with a War Eagle victory of 21 14. Wakulla did not fare so well against Godby. The War Eagles failed to make much headway when in possession, and turned over two times to Godby, allowing the Cougars to lead 20 0. Towards the end of the second quarter, though, the War Eagles completed a successful series. QB Douin handed off to Landry, who ran to the Eagle 40 yard line for a “ rst down. On the fourth down, Morris caught a 10 plus yard pass to get the War Eagles another “ rst down. A few plays later, and Smith was able to attempt a “ eld goal from the Cougar 23. His kick was good, and stopped the War Eagles from being shut out by Godby. The game ended with a score of 20 3. War Eagle head coach Scott Klees pointed out that there were a lot of players who were unable to play because of injuries. The War Eagles lost few seniors last year, so the team is made up of many returning players, including a roughly estimated 18 to 20 seniors. We have a chance to be pretty special,Ž Klees said. By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netWakulla War Eagle volleyball coach Erica Bunch was honored as the Florida Regions Outstanding Juniors 12 to 14 Coach at the Florida Region of USA Volleyball awards ceremony on May 6 in Orlando. I was somewhat shocked and extremely honored to hear the announcement,Ž Bunch said. Bunch received the award largely because of the success of her volleyball club, Wakulla Storm. Bunch started the club in 2007, so that players in Wakulla could have the same advantages as those in Tallahassee. Of the graduating seniors who played on Wakulla Storm, 80 percent will be playing volleyball at the collegiate level. Bunch, who was the “ rst Wakulla County native to sign with FSU, said that coaching awards are more important to her than awards for her abilities, because with coaching she is affecting more than just one life. Bunch will be part of the second annual volleyball clinic held at the high school this summer. The camp costs $130 and will teach participants the basics of volleyball. Camp dates are June 13 16 for elementary students and July 11 14 for middle school students, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and noon to 3 p.m. Participants should bring athletic clothing, tennis shoes and knee pads. They will receive a T-shirt and daily lunch. Id like to thank our schools administration for the off-season support, the parents for the in-season support, and my family for their year-round dedication to my love for volleyball,Ž Bunch said.

I was draining my new lily pad pool in preparation to building a retainer to hold muck. I planned to make the retainer from mortar cement, and discarded chunks of agatized coral from our local spring fed rivers. Millions of years ago this coral was part of an ancient coral reef, then for eons the ocean sank and the dying coral was covered with ocean sediments that eventually turned to limestone. Then out of the ocean rose Florida, again millions of years ago. Rains eventually dissolved the limestone, exposing the coral heads once again. During these eons the calcium the the corals were originally formed of dissolved, and were replaced with silicates, basically creating a fossil of the coral, often to amazing detail! One of my many hobbies is ” intknapping, and I often use this agatized coral rock to make my primitive point replicas. When done with this article Ill return to my pool and make the retainers to hold submerged aquatic plants like Pickerel Weed, Indian or Duck Potato, cattails, etc.. While setting up this morning, I walked back to my home for a cup of coffee, but when I returned to “ nish to clean off the rocks one was out of place which puzzled me for I knew Id not placed a chunk of this coral rock at the waters edge, “ ve feet from the rest of the rocks. Then It hit me … it was a box turtle, and in looking closer realized it was drinking with its head completely submerged. Great, my pool was already attracting wildlife! As I watched I expected the turtle to come up for air, but instead she held her head below the surface for a good “ ve minutes. When finally she raised her head after drinking what seemed like forever, and looked around. I remained motionless. Next she walked out into the deeper part of the pool, sinking completely below the waters surface and started prowling around the pools bottom looking for whatever. She was acting like a mud, or musk turtle, basically as an aquatic turtle would search for food, even though box turtles are considered a land turtle. We have about 28 species of turtles in our area, including of course “ ve marine species. By far the most commonly seen, especially once the summer thunderstorms kick in, is box turtles. How did I know this turtle was a female? The carapace is the upper shell, and with the female of these turtles the rear of the shell slopes nearly straight down, which allows the males during copulation to reach her cloaca. The males on the other hand have a distinct outward ” are to the rear of the upper shell, and even driving 60 miles per hour down a highway one can easily identify them as they cross the road. Turtles are the only vertebrate that have their hips and shoulders enclosed in their unique shell, their outstanding trade mark among all reptiles. Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 2, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFirst of all I hope you and your family had an enjoyable and safe, very safe Memorial Day weekend. We could not have asked for any better weather. Whether you went sailing, picnicking or “ shing … or just sat on the beach sunning … the weather was absolutely beautiful. The water temperature is still fairly cool for this time of the year so the south breeze kept it comfortable along the coast. I told you last week there were going to be a lot of boats on the water and there sure were. A lot on the ” ats and a bunch heading offshore. It was like Grand Central Station at AMS bait shop on Saturday morning and Luke said it was like that all weekend. Monday a week ago, Mike Crum and Tom Frencheck “ shed the mouth of the Ochlockonee River and caught their limit of nice trout using a white Gulp under a Cajun Thunder. They had a 24 and 22-inch trout and said they threw back quite a few that were legal. They were back at the landing by 10 a.m. Luke took Scott Harper down around Carrabelle exploring and they “ shed the spotted water between Ho Hum Campground and the mouth of the Ochlockonee River and caught seven nice trout using the new penny and white Gulp under a Cajun Thunder. Tim Jordan of Ochlocknee Bay Realty said he fished with Capt. Wayne Todd last week and they caught a bunch of nice trout. They “ shed the oyster bars over around Caramel Beach and caught their “ sh using a white Gulp. Capt. Randy Pert has been fishing over at St. George for the past week and doing extremely well on trout and Spanish. He has been “ shing the grass flats out from the State Park on the bay side using white Gulps under a Cajun Thunder. One day he had some ” y “ shermen and they caught some nice reds and a four-pound trout and lost a trout he estimated to weigh six pounds right up at the boat. On Randys last trip to the Econfina/Aucilla he took the David Harris party from Tallahassee. David caught an 8-pound trout using a red and white Spook Jr. “ shing in about 18 inches of water on a foggy morning. Randy said they missed three large “ sh prior to that which he believed at “ rst to be reds but after catching that trout he figured they were trout also. Randy did everything he could to resitaute the “ sh but wasnt able to. I just hope they had it mounted and didnt take it home to eat. Capt. David Fife has been catching some nice reds in the Spring Creek area using live mud minnows and cut mullet. Hes also been catching some nice black drum and ” ounder. On Saturday I fished with Dr. Ray Dolly and his son Stephen and daughter Elaine. We came in with 11 trout, six Spanish and two nice ” ounder. I hate to say it but his daughter out“ shed everyone though Stephen was real hot at the end of the day. We caught everything on live shrimp on the bottom or under a Cajun Thunder. We ran out to the Ochlockonee Shoals around the end of the high tide and caught quite a few trout and of course numerous sharks. Larry Hess said he had been catching some big blues out there using top water plugs and he said many of them were still wearing them in their jaws. On Sunday Dr. Phil Sharp, his daughter, Savannah, and I went out for a couple of hours before the high tide and Savannah caught a 22 inch trout on her “ rst cast on a Gulp. I think they must have a “ shing class at Maclay because she could cast like it was nobodys business. Better than a lot of people that I take. It was her biggest trout ever and Im just glad I was out there to see her catch it. Ive heard there are scallops down east of the lighthouse and with the lack of rain we have had this year we should have plenty. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good “ shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Wakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHIt was busy on the water this weekendA Box turtle swimming in my lily pad pondFrom FWC NewsThe recreational harvest season for red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico will open on June 1. The recreational seasons for gag grouper and greater amberjack in the Gulf of Mexico closed on May 31. Gag grouper will remain closed throughout 2011, except for a two-month opening in the fall, from Sept. 16 through Nov. 15. Greater amberjack will reopen on Aug. 1. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will discuss the closing date for red snapper in state waters of the Gulf on June 9 at its meeting in St. Augustine. Commissioners will consider adopting a closing date consistent with the federal date of July 18. More details are available in the meeting agenda, at MyFWC. com/Commission. Gulf gag grouper are considered to be over“ shed and undergoing over“ shing, and federal “ sheries managers are preparing a plan to help rebuild populations of these “ sh in Gulf waters. In the meantime, interim federal rules are in effect that prohibit the recreational harvest of gag grouper in Gulf federal waters (beyond nine nautical miles from shore). This federal prohibition is in effect through the end of 2011, except for a Sept. 16 to Nov. 15 open recreational harvest season for gag grouper in the Gulf. The FWCs rule for Gulf state waters, except Monroe County waters, closes gag grouper recreational harvest from June 1 through the end of 2011, except for an open gag grouper recreational harvest season of Sept. 16 to Nov. 15. These seasons apply this year only. The newly implemented annual June 1 to July 31 closed recreational harvest season for greater amberjack in Gulf of Mexico state waters is also consistent with new rules in Gulf federal waters. The FWC believes that applying the same closed recreational harvest seasons for gag grouper and greater amberjack in Gulf state waters (inside nine nautical miles from shore) as in federal offshore waters will maximize “ shing opportunities for anglers and charter boat operators along Floridas Gulf coast and provide economic bene“ ts to this region.

We also need to keep praying for the men and women who continue to “ ght to protect not only us, but many others. We have much to be thankful for, even on our worst day, we are much better off than many others. Memorial Day also reminds us that Hurricane season in right around the corner! Each year we plan for the worst and hope for the best. We are more fortunate than most in the impact our area experiences from the hurricanes, however as recent history shows, we are not immune to the devastation that can be caused. Even a tropical storm or depression can bring ” ooding and surge that destroy most in its path. According to NOAA, on average the Atlantic-Caribbean-Gulf of Mexico sees 11 storms annually, with six becoming hurricanes. While most of the storms seem to miss us, we are not without risk. There are several things you can do to prepare yourself in the event that a storm is heading our way. Semper Paratus (Always readyŽ) is the Coast Guard motto. First it is important to know what your risk is. Are you in a ” ood prone area or at risk if high winds and surge hit us? Securing outdoor items and using tie-down straps for buildings that could be moved off their foundations is great prevention. If you are close to the coast, it is important to pay attention to the forecast as we are very limited in our routes inland. If you choose to stay home, be ready with plenty of water, nonperishable foods, battery operated lighting and a battery operated radio. If you use a candle or other “ re, “ re crews may have a very hard time getting to you if it were to get out of hand. Medication and cash on hand are also important things to consider. Try to keep at least a week of medication handy so that you have enough to make it through until stores are able to re-open. In the event of a power loss, cash may be the only ability you have to get things you may need. A good emergency coffee can fund is never a bad idea. You may also want to keep paper copies of your insurance policies in a Ziploc just in case it is needed. In addition to taking care of yourself and your family, pets are another important consideration in being prepared. Be sure to have extra water and food for them as well. While this may seem like we cover the same things each year, and sometime more than once, it is in most peoples nature to think that we have been spared so far, and there is no need to be overly prepared. The recent severe storm outbreaks around the midwest has brought to the forefront just how important our safety is and how much we are lucky to have more than 24 minutes warning when a hurricane, tropical storm or depression is heading our way. You can download the National Weather Service preparedness brochure from: www.nws.noaa. gov/om/brochures/hurr.pdf. Now on to local news... Even though Sherrie had a house full of company, in true Sherrie fashion, she sent the following news from Flotilla 13: It has been a very dif“ cult time for Flotilla 13 and most of its members. Most of the problems are illness of members or the members family and the need to be out-of town for extended periods of time, etc. The latest prayer list addition is their Flotilla Commander, John Sykes. A week ago Friday, his 83-year-old mother suffered a massive stroke. She made it through the weekend and surgery the following Monday and is in a medically induced coma. Sunday afternoon John said she had been moved into the Hospice Home in Port Orange. Please, keep John, his mother and their family in your prayers. Flotilla 12 had a quiet week after such a busy previous weekend. Phil, Tim and Raye met at the Fort to provide free vessel exams on Saturday. Several boats stopped by, including one kayak. Every major holiday weekend, we try to have a day when we provide free exams, and we plan to have another one over July Fourth. In addition to the boats inspected, with the heavy traf“ c at the Fort, Phil, Tim and Raye helped launch a few boats and prevent bumper boats at the docks. Chuck Hickman stopped by with My Gail and had his facility inspection completed to make sure there were no gaps in her availability for use. Thanks, Chuck! As Sherrie reminds us each week, safe boating is NO accident!In recognition of National Safe Boating Week, Florida By Water is releasing its newest iPhone application, entitled Vessel Safety Check. This app uses the Federal Boating Requirements for recreational boaters, as well as other vessel examiner documentation, so that recreational boaters have the required equipment necessary to be safe on the water. The app identi“ es the required equipment for recreational boats based on criteria speci“ c to your vessel, including boat size, inland or coastal waters, inboard or outboard and more. Once the app has compiled a list of speci“ c requirements, youll also be provided with a list optional safety items, as well as an explanation about the requirements. That list of speci“ c requirements can then be e-mailed or saved for future reference. A few other features worth noting are the marine store locator, recommended items and a vessel examiner locator. The Vessel Safety Check app is on sale in the iTunes App Store for 99 cents.New app o ers boat safety checkI was fresh out of a study in the Antarctic in the mid1980s that required diving in 27 degree salt water under ten feet of ice when I met Parker Turner. He invited me to a conference in Cozumel, Mexico, to discuss the future of cave research and exploration. The previous policy of the cave community was to keep a low pro“ le, a secret society so to speak, but that was changing as folks like Parker realized educating the diving public was far more effective in curbing the rising concern about cave safety. He offered to join us in our ” edging university dive program, to forge a new perspective that included cave research. What developed over the course of “ ve years was a dramatic facelift that de“ ned scienti“ c diving at Florida State University for decades to follow. No greater difference could be found between what was then called the scienti“ c diver and what was happening in the cave diving community. Scienti“ c divers were working at depths shallower that 40 feet and mostly in salt water. They based their training and technology on recreational standards, but were task oriented in the pursuit of data. The cave community had long ago established a rigorous training standard that included a deviation from the recreational community, in their pursuit of cave exploration. Both communities had their politics that excluded the other. It seemed the two were not likely to mix well. When Parker joined our staff, we began a dialogue that tore the premises of both communities down to their elemental basics. Then we reconstructed using the best of both to form a university program with a dynamic that embraced underwater research at all levels. We hosted in Tallahassee the “ rst meeting of the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) in 1986 and included the cave community. This event was the “ rst for both: an AAUS meeting outside of San Diego and putting the cave community in concert with a research organization. The following proceedings of that meeting sold out immediately. At that national meeting we began the long debate for meaningful change within the scienti“ c diving community that continues to this day. The AAUS now has standards for cave research amongst many others in challenging environments and using advanced (non-recreational) technology, all stemming back to that time period in the late 1980 and Parker Turner. To bolster the reformation, Parker and I went on the road to teach Nitrox and Trimix workshops, and support innovative research such as the Surface Interval Oxygen project held at Wakulla Springs in 1992. He became the Universitys Cave Research Coordinator and participated on numerous cave research projects. I became a cave instructor and taught every member of my Applications of Diving to Research class the practice of Cavern Diving until I retired in 2004. The university collaborated with the cave diving community on several projects that furthered the objectives of each. We de“ ned exploration separately from science diving and encouraged each to mature independently. Now retired and the owner/operator of Wakulla Diving Center, I have dedicated our new facility to the memory of Parker Turner and all that he contributed to our understanding of this aquatic world.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 2, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comWakulla County Sheriff David Harvey honored three members of the WCSO staff as well as a Crawfordville family for their support of law enforcement in 2010. The recognition was part of the 19th Annual Law Day activities at Harvey-Young Farm. The 2011 honorees included Lt. Dale Evans as Deputy of the Year; Lt. Scott Barwick as Correctional Of“ cer of the Year; Tracy Lane as Communications Of“ cer of the Year; and the Nelson family of George Nelson, Mary Nelson and Lueberta Nelson Crump as Volunteers of the Year in Support of Law Enforcement. € Lt. Dale Evans is in his second stint with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce. Evans was hired Feb. 16, 1995, and worked with the sheriffs office until Sept. 6, 2004. After working in the private sector, Evans joined the sheriffs of“ ce again on March 20, 2009. Evans was just a teenager when he began working in the communications division as a dispatcher at age 19. By age 21, he was promoted to sergeant and worked as part of the road patrol. Eventually he worked in criminal investigations as a property and personal crimes investigator, as a K-9 of“ cer, in the narcotics unit and back to road patrol. During his time away from the sheriffs of“ ce he worked as a “ re and security technician at General Dynamics. He returned to the sheriffs of“ ce to work in corrections and landed back on the road patrol before Sheriff Harvey created the WCSO Traf“ c Unit. Lt. Evans has attended special schooling for traffic homicide and traffic reconstruction. His specialty classes include three dimensional mapping called photogrammetry and laser mapping. As a K-9 of“ cer, Evans worked with Kane and Dante. He is certi“ ed in traf“ c crash reconstruction, as well as advanced Traf“ c Crash and Motorcycle Crash investigation. Lt. Evans has four children who range in age from 7 to 16, Morgan, D.J. Madison and Katlin. He is engaged to former Florida State University volleyball player Erica Bunch who serves as the Wakulla Lady War Eagle volleyball coach. Evans mother, Evelyn, is a longtime employee of the Wakulla Clerk of the Court. His father, Frank, is a former county employee with the planning and zoning department who is now employed by the Panacea Area Water System. Dale has a brother Frank who lives in Sopchoppy. In 2010, Lt. Evans and the Traf“ c Unit worked two fatal accidents that claimed the lives of three motorists. He calls his present job the best job I have ever had in law enforcement.Ž Im eager to learn more,Ž he said. The traf“ c part of it has become a passion. Weve taken it to a whole new level.Ž The Traf“ c Unit has been a great bene“ t to Wakulla County as it has cut response times and kept citizens from having to wait on state investigators to respond to minor accidents from great distances. Theyre not just a case number to us,Ž he said. We try to take care of them. We are constantly learning new ways to do things,Ž he concluded. € Lt. Scott Barwick said he was proud to receive the award as Correctional Of“ cer of the Year. Barwick was hired on June 23, 1999, and worked until Oct. 15, 2000. After working in private industry, he was hired again in 2003. On April 30, 2010, he was certi“ ed as part of the Crisis Intervention Team and on Sept. 28, 2010, he was certi“ ed as the Field Training Of“ cer for corrections. Some of his duties include being quartermaster over supplies, environmental health officer in the jail, certi“ ed locksmith for the Immigrations Customs Enforcement standards and assigning trustees to work crews. He began his corrections career working security with inmates. He took a break from law enforcement to work in the family seafood business with his father Ronnie Barwick. But Lt. Barwick said he realized that the commercial fishing industry was not going to provide his family with the retirement he desired. I like doing it,Ž he said. Ive enjoyed corrections. Ive had a chance to go to road patrol but this is my comfort zone.Ž He and his wife, Penny, have two daughters, Alexandria and Trista and an adopted niece, Deserea. I knew I wanted some retirement and the seafood industry has been legislated almost out of business entirely,Ž he concluded. I love the corrections aspect of the operation. Ill leave the road patrol to the younger guys.Ž € Tracy Lane was selected as Communications Of“ cer of the Year. She joined the sheriffs of“ ce on July 18, 2008 and has Criminal Justice Information Services Certi“ cation. Lane said she is proud of having received the designation, but her real joy is serving the citizens of Wakulla County. I really love it,Ž she said of communications. It can be challenging at times, but Ive always wanted to do something in law enforcement.Ž She discovered that the sheriffs of“ ce had a dispatch opening in 2008 and jumped at the opportunity. Ive always wanted to help people and make a difference in the community,Ž she said. You never know if you are the last voice the caller is going to hear so Im compassionate with everybody.Ž She and her husband Kenneth fell in love with Wakulla County. Polk County natives, they also lived in Georgia and Inverness before moving back to Wakulla. Tracy has worked in the hardware and construction company businesses. Kenneth is employed in corrections at the Leon County Sheriffs Of“ ce. The couple has four children, Dustin, Justin, Cassie and Christopher. I love the people I work with and I want to make a difference in somebodys life. I have always wanted to be part of the community and I feel like I am part of the community. The communications division includes seven women and three men who man the telephones, computers and radios. They are a wonderful group of people,Ž she said. I love them all. Ive always been fascinated with this kind of work and Im very passionate about it.Ž € The Nelson family was honored as Volunteers of the Year in Support of Law Enforcement. For George Nelson, Mary Nelson and Lueberta Nelson Crump, Oct. 22, 2010, will be a night they wont soon forget. They all live across U.S. Highway 319 from the Wakulla Shrine Club. During the evening hours a wedding reception was being held at the facility. As one of the wedding party members from Lake City was leaving the facility, she pulled out in front of oncoming traffic and two of the “ ve passengers inside the sedan were killed and another was severely injured. The Nelsons, who are all brothers and sisters, offered beverages and comfort to family members right after the accident occurred. They also allowed law enforcement to set up a staging area to investigate the crash and coordinate the landing of a medical helicopter to transport the most seriously injured victim to the hospital. I felt like it was just the thing to do,Ž said Crump. I was glad I was there to help. My mother always taught us to do for other people because you never know when you might need help,Ž said George Nelson. A mother and daughter closest to the crash impact died that night, but there were three survivors in the vehicle. Two motorists in a truck also survived the severe crash. The Nelsons helped family members of the victims locate a lost bracelet along the side of the highway. It was a horrible scene,Ž said Capt. Billy Jones of the Traffic Unit. These fine folks opened their homes and provided a safe staging area, offering something to drink and comfort. For an accident scene of this magnitude it was very important that they had the courage to step up and help us.Ž John Nelson and Alfred Nelson accepted the awards on behalf of George Nelson and Mary Nelson. Captain Billy Jones presented the award to the Nelson family. Sheriff David Harvey recognized Star & Shield and Culpepper Construction for their sponsorship of the 2011 event.

By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netBackwoods Bistro in Sopchoppy was named Business of the Year at the Wakulla Chamber of Commerces Business Excellence Awards Banquet on Thursday, May 19. The Works Coworking Cafe was named the Startup Business of the Year. The Wakulla Area Business of the Year, which was open to all businesses whether a member of the Chamber or not, was VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital. The Environmental Stewardship of the Year was a tie between Paul Johnson & Associates and the Wakulla Extension Of“ ce. The Non-Pro“ t Organization of the Year was Habitat for Humanity of Wakulla. Also receiving awards at the banquet were Brooks Concrete, which was founded in 1974 and is the oldest Chamber member. Edwin Brown & Associates, founded in 1976, was given an award as the second-oldest Chamber member. The speaker at the banquet was Don Kirkman, president of Floridas Great Northwest, the regional economic development agency, who told local business leaders that the 16 counties in the region are far from one-size-“ tsall when it comes to an answer for how to respond to the current economic crisis. Florida had been complacent for years, Kirkman said, thinking it could always rely on tourism and real estate for continual growth. The real estate bubble, the economic crash and its impact on tourism, and last years BP oil spill showed the fallacy to that logic. And Florida has been one of the hardest hit, Kirkman said. He noted that in 2004, Florida had an unemployment rate of under 4 percent. Now, the jobless rate is nearly 11 percent … one of the highest in the nation. The good news is that the Northwest region is the lowest in the stateŽ for unemployment, he said. But thats still around 7 percent. He warned that there was danger in Wakulla relying on being a bedroom community of Tallahassee to drive progress … state layoffs seem certain, and the state budget is certainly contracting. Kirkman said that, no matter how one feels politically about Gov. Rick Scott, he has stressed his support for creating jobs … as the backbone of not just the economy, but of families.

On May 12, several Chamber board members and members from the Wakulla Historical Society attended the Florida Heritage Foundation/Tallahassee Trust for Historic Preservation award ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church on North Adams Street in Tallahassee. We were treated to a great video and audio presentation for all the noteworthy projects but especially enjoyed seeing the one that honored Wakulla Countys historic Courthouse. After the presentation we received our plaques and attended the firstever wine reception in the churchs 173 year history. The church was also awarded a plaque for their historic grant renovations that had just been completed, so maybe the church decided that it was time to break with a long held tradition. On May 13, the Chamber awarded its “ rst ever scholarship, through the Wakulla High Academic Boosters, to a deserving student from Wakulla High. The award was for $2,000 and was made possible by the great participation in, and contributions we received from, the Low Country Boil. When we all work together great things will happen! Please mark your calendars for next year, 3rd weekend in March, and we will send another student on their way to college with your help! Business Excellence Awards On May 19, we had our annual Business Excellence Awards Banquet. Prior to the award portion of the program we had the opportunity to hear Don Kirkman, president of Floridas Great Northwest, talk about the future of our region and the future of Wakulla County. Dons words were sobering, but realistic. We have a great leader for regionally marketing the Florida panhandle. Persistence and determination will help us through this tough patch along with some innovative thinking and long range planning. I would like to recognize the committee that put this event together lead by Jo Ann Palmer, with Courtney Peacock, Anne Ahrendt, Sharol Brown, and last, but not least, Petra Shuff. Thanks also goes out to CenturyLink, our primary sponsor; Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center, Mary the chef and the angels who served our dinner. Improvements to 319 As far as long range planning and innovative thinking, we are working on a plan to concentrate our focus on the biggest restrictor to growth in Wakulla County … U.S. Highway 319. Sixty percent of our workforce drives to Tallahassee every day, most of us on 319. It would not be a stretch to say, also, that this same percentage does most of their shopping while they are in Leon County. The problem with this is that Wakulla County government provides services while Leon County collects the sales tax that should be funding those services. The only way to “ x this problem is to encourage more retail development so that we have more choices at a better price. The only way to encourage the retail development is to facilitate traf“ c ” ow on 319 and improve the way Crawfordville looks and functions. Our county commissioners hired a group of planners to put together a plan to improve how Crawfordville looks and functions. This group has spent the last year or so meeting with the citizens, polling our wishes and desires, and putting those concepts on paper. The result is a good plan, but the larger task lies ahead, implementation. The Chamber and the county are trying to develop a way to implement the plan. One option proposed by the County planners, and a good one, is to form a Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) tax district for the area we chose to be Our Town.Ž Continued on Page 3B Backwoods Bistro is business of the yearMay has been month of awards at the ChamberBusiness of the Year Backwoods Pizza and Bistro Start-up Business of the Year e Works Coworking Caf Non-Pro“ t Organization of the Year Habitat for Humanity of Wakulla County Environmental Stewardship Award (tie) Wakulla Extension O ce IFAS Paul G.

Page 2B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 2, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comLibrary News... By JO ANN PALMERDirector KWCBKeep Wakulla County Beautiful is winding down one of its major programs for the year; The Great American Cleanup, the nations largest community improvement program. This program takes place from March 1 thru May 31, and involves an estimated 3.9 million volunteers and participants nationwide. This year during this program, Keep Wakulla County Beautiful held several events, and participated in others throughout the county including Hazardous Waste Day, the forest cleanup, Project Learning Tree, local festivals where we passed out information on what you can do to help your local environment, and assisted groups such as the Girl Scouts and small businesses interested in community service hours, “ nd a project. Project Learning Tree themes this year included stay-cations and day-cations, helping Mother Nature and Wondrous Wakulla. I had the privilege of speaking to approximately 150 students at two of our elementary schools during my two days of participation. Many of you know my hobby is photography, so I used many of my photos in a PowerPoint presentation to blend the beauty of Wakullas natural environment with a strong message that everything we touch impacts our environment. As I show pictures of the old courthouse and ask what was recycled in this picture, students look puzzled until I say, the building. I show pictures of the old jail, same question, only this time, they get it. There are pictures of the river and when I ask if any of them “ sh, eager little hands go up, anxious to tell a “ shing story. Then I ask, Have you ever lost “ shing line?Ž The students arent as eager to admit that, then I asked if they know how long it takes for that line to decompose and I get answers anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of months. In reality, the mono“ lament “ shing line will take a whopping 600 years to breakdown. That and other answers astound them. I told them that it takes an undetermined length of time for those one-time use plastic bags to decompose and that I have made a personal commitment to never accept another one. Some of the most surprising facts about the decomposing trash timeline were about aluminum cans, which take up to 450 years, or that foam cup you get to goŽ will take 50 years to decompose in a land“ ll, and the glass bottles from your favorite cold beverage … well, hope you really enjoyed it. Each bottle will take 1 million years to degrade. Disposable diapers, 450 years, and the number one, most collected item during the International Coastal Cleanup is cigarette butts which take two to “ ve years to decompose. By the end of the two days, I think every one had a new appreciation for their surroundings and were thinking about what they can do to reduce, reuse and recycle. As with most organizations, one program leads to another and since reducing litter and environmental education are an ongoing process, KWCB has lots of work to do. Over the next couple of weeks we are beginning an effort to update our Adopta-Road records and con“ rm participation in this program. It has been several years since these “ les have been updated and my goal is to make sure our roads are being taken care of. We will be mailing letters to all the addresses on record, which will include a questionnaire. Completing and returning the information will allow us to make sure the program is on target and working as it should. If you or someone you know is interested in the Adopt-a-Road program, contact me at (850) 745-7111 or by email at helpkwcb@gmail. com. You can also “ nd us on Facebook where you can watch for upcoming events. As a reminder, reduce litter, reuse when possible and recycle. Its good for everyone.Keep Wakulla BeautifulSpecial EventsThursday, June 2 € CAREER EXPO, sponsored by Workforce Plus, will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at the Wakulla Extension Of“ ce/IFAS Center located at 84 Cedar Avenue, Crawfordville.

The Chamber is encouraging the Board of County Commissioners to consider establishing a set of project priorities, with the goal being to bring to the voters a referendum asking you to extend the one cent sales tax for 15 years beyond its current ending date. The difference from the “ rst penny sales tax referendum will be that we hope to present you with a set of speci“ c priorities that the revenue has to be spent on, and in a set order. This will allow us to formulate a long range plan for solving our biggest problems. Your vote will dedicate a revenue stream that will be bondable and will attract the state and federal funds that always elude us. We can dovetail the CRA and the referendum together, and that is what we may need to do when and if we get further into the numbers. One thing is sure, if we dont do something, nothing will get done. We have other big problems, such as sewer and storm water, which need attention and should be part of the discussion. We have set up a committee to steer this initiative which we have named Wakulla Working Together and have a workshop with the Board of County Commissioners scheduled for Aug. 4 at 6 p.m. The content of this workshop will be informative in nature; we will be trying to wrap our arms around how to get it done. Hopefully, what we need to get accomplished will come next. We will be trying to create jobs, improve the functionality of our town, shorten the drive time to Tallahassee, improve water quality, and improve our sewer infrastructure; thereby encouraging commercial activity, and sales tax receipts.

During the Todays Youth, Tomorrows Workforce Youth Resource and Career Expo in Crawfordville, WorkforcePlus will advocate for youth by providing job opportunities speci“ cally geared to younger people. The Career Expo will be held Thursday, June 2, from 10 a.m. to noon at the UF/IFAS Wakulla Extension Of“ ce. In addition to providing job opportunity awareness for youth, the Expo will provide a place to meet employers, talk to college and military recruiters and get information on local resources and volunteer opportunities available in the community. There is no registration required for the expo. However, as the Youth Expo will be the “ rst time potential employers meet potential employees, a few guidelines for attendance are suggested. First, dressing professionally is required. For those in need of a more modest wardrobe, a free clothing closet is available prior to the Expo by visiting the WorkforcePlus office located at 3278 Crawfordville Hwy. Personal grooming is also highly suggested as hygiene and cleanliness make strong impressions on hiring employers. Finally, many youth will not have any previous job experience, so many will lack a formal resume. It is suggested that youth bring a resume built around classroom projects and volunteer experience, such as club participation or church involvement. WorkforcePlus is offering the How To Work A Youth ExpoŽ workshop to help young job seekers be prepared for the event and speaking with employers. We have seen across the board that summer is no longer the de facto job season for youth,Ž Kimberly Moore, CEO of WorkforcePlus said.

T ell us about your business: In 1974, James Bernard Brooks Sr., retired from pipeline union work at age 34 to move home and “ nd a means to support his family of six. Welding was his specialty and having a boss wasnt, so he started his own business, Brooks Welding & Machine Shop, Inc. The two logical employees of choice were his wife, Peggie Brooks, and his only son, James Bernard Brooks II, known as LBŽ who was 10. From 1974 to 1994, the three of them worked together to build the business. Bernard and Peggie worked many 60-hour weeks, and LB worked at the business every day after school and on weekends. Upon graduation from Wakulla High School in 1982, LB joined the business full time so he too could enjoy 60 hours a week. The business was originally located where it remains today at 1532 Coastal Highway in Panacea. When the business “ rst began, services included a gas station, welding, fabrication of trailers, sandblasting, painting, wrecker services, and U-Haul rental services. For customers waiting on services and for afternoon entertainment, Brooks had two pool tables and a juke box in the of“ ce building. As time passed, services grew to include land clearing, marine work, sales and manufacturing of concrete septic tanks, and piling installation. Brooks built their own barge and began installing marine pilings for projects such as the Shell Point Marina. Brooks also became known as the expert in seawall installation. Seawalls became the driving factor for redi-mix concrete. At that time, Brooks placed orders for redi-mix concrete from Tommy Rowell, who had a small redimix plant located at what is now known as Harrell Brothers Construction in Medart. As the necessity grew for redi-mix on Brooks jobsites, in 1984 Brooks erected its own manual redi-mix plant and purchased one redi-mix concrete truck for the purpose of providing controlled deliveries to their own seawall jobs. As the community became aware of this small redi-mix plant, local contractors and homeowners began asking Brooks to deliver redi-mix to their homes and jobsites for concrete patios, parking pads, and residential and commercial foundations. This began what we now know as Brooks Concrete. In 1990, Brooks contracted with Mizner Marine from Tampa to help build the concrete bridge at Angelos in Panacea. Brooks became DOT certi“ ed for this project. LB Brooks manually batched 13,000 cubic yards of redi-mix for this project; each truck was to be inspected by DOT upon delivery and would be refused if the temperature of the mix was not exact … and Brooks never had a truck returned. In 1995, Bernard Brooks Sr. passed away with colon cancer. Having spent 20 years by his Dads side at the business, LB Brooks took over to manage the business. As with any passing of the torch from one generation to the next, it was a transition period for all. After Bernard Sr.s death, many stories were told that apparently needed to wait until after he wasnt around to tell. There are so many to tell and so many not to tell, but I will choose one that makes us laugh and cringe at the same time. Bernard Brooks and Wally Dodson from Wakulla Bank go way back. I dont think this could be written without a most sincere word of thanks and gratitude to Dodson for helping Brooks Concrete stay in business from its inception and through the hardest of times. On one particular day, Bernard needed to get a deposit to the bank before 5 p.m. Unfortunately, Bernard arrived at the bank at 5:01 p.m. The employee was locking the door and motioned at her watch that it was 5:01 p.m. His protest to make his deposit was to no avail; the employee stood her ground. Bernard went to his truck and decided to make his own mark on the ground: Wakulla Banks beautiful, well-manicured, gorgeous rose bed out on display in front of the bank suffered a brutal, untimely death beneath burning rubber. In 1996, LB upgraded and automated the batch plant and over the next few years increased the ” eet to a total of 10 redi-mix trucks, two dump trucks, and a crane and auger truck for piling installations. Though not as simple as it sounds, redimix concrete could now be batched at the press of a button with the help of a complex computerized system. The construction boom in 2005 brought business to its height at Brooks Concrete & Pilings with 20 employees and 10 mixer trucks. Piling installations soared to reach 50 percent of Brooks business and included The Marina Village Townhouses in Panacea, Pelican Bay Townhouses at Alligator Point, a multi-residential housing complex for FAMU in Tallahassee, Georges Lighthouse Point condos at Angelos, and many other residential and commercial piling projects throughout Wakulla and Franklin counties, along with projects as far as Horseshoe Beach, Keaton Beach, Mexico Beach and Cape San Blas. In 2011, things arent as crazy at Brooks Concrete as they were in 2005. The past two years have proven to be dif“ cult at best to manage the downturn in construction. The long-standing relationships we have enjoyed with so many homeowners and contractors have truly been the foundation of our business, along with a lot of faith, perseverance and determination. Customers are usually perplexed as to how a 44year-old business owner could have over 35 years of experience. What could a 10-year old possibly do at a welding and machine shop? The reply was quick: I organized nuts and bolts, but this was three years after I was on the pipeline with my dad … back when I was 7.Ž What services, products do you offer? Redi-Mix Concrete, piling installation, concrete septic tanks, rock/gravel, sand, concrete parking lot bumper stops, concrete survey markers, concrete picnic/patio foreverŽ tables, rebar, oxygen/ acetylene. What sets your business apart from the competition? Not cutting corners or costs to deliver a quality product and ownership management is where we feel we outperform our competitors, as well offering the best service possible to our customers. What should we be on the lookout for? We are always looking for new products and possibilities. Recently, LB introduced the concrete forever tables for patio or picnic tables as well as the much higher “ sh-cleaning table with or without a sink. Our Forever Tables are weather-proof, rot-proof, and theft-proof! Why did you join the Chamber? Its our civic responsibility to support an entity that supports all of our local businesses and brings us together. In addition, it provides a means for businesses to network together and be aware of the products and services that are available in our community as well as to help new businesses get established. Being a member of the Chamber helps create a sense of community. Whats your reason why Wakulla residents should Shop Local? By Shopping Local, Wakulla County residents and businesses help support all of our area businesses and help create and maintain jobs in Wakulla County. Shopping local is the lifeblood of Wakulla County commerce. We are extremely fortunate to have so many local homeowners and contractors support our business for over 35 years.

By MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 20 … The number of jobless Floridians fell below 1 million for “ rst time since October 2009 as the states jobless rate in April fell to 10.8 percent, the Agency for Workforce Innovation reported Friday. Marking the seventh straight month of job growth, the April “ gure was down 0.3 percent from March and more than a full point lower than the 12 percent rate from April 2010. Total employment increased to 8.2 million, up by 14,9000 from March and 39,200 more than April 2010. This is the fourth straight month of decline in Floridas unemployment rate and the lowest rate in more than a year and a half … very encouraging for Floridas employers and job seekers,Ž said Agency for Workforce Innovation Director Cynthia R. Lorenzo, in a statement. The 10.8 percent unemployment rate translates into 996,000 jobless out of a labor force of 9.25 million. Floridas total nonagricultural employment in April 2011 was 7.2 million, an increase of 14,900 jobs from March and 39,200 more than a year ago. Tuesdays update was a welcome sign that Florida is slowly recovering from the biggest economic slump in more than 70 years. The U.S. unemployment rate is 9 percent in April, up from 8.8 percent in March. Having campaigned on a platform almost exclusively revolving around creating jobs, Gov. Rick Scott was quick to laud the news. I remain focused on job creation, so it is great news that this trend is continuing in the right direction,Ž Scott said. With tax relief for property owners and elimination of taxes on about half of the businesses that currently pay, I believe we are on the path to getting Florida back to work.Ž Whether his administration gets the credit for the latest drop will likely be open to interpretation. Floridas rebound continues to be heavily fuelled by increase in the states tourism industry. The states leisure and hospitality industry led the rebound with a gain of 39,400 jobs year to year. Other growth sectors included private education and healthcare, and professional services. Construction employment continued to lag as the sector lost 20,400 jobs from April 2010. The number of government jobs, a typically stable sector, fell by 6,600 jobs year-toyear, a reflection of the budget cuts taken in the last couple of years. Taken as a whole, Fridays “ gure was cause for cautious optimism, said Sean Snaith, an economist at the University of Central Florida who tracks Floridas economy. Our diagnosis has been upgraded from critical to serious,Ž said Snaith, the director of UCFs Institute for Economic Competitiveness. But Snaith has cautioned that the states long-term economic strength may not return to 2007 levels for several years. Before that, the states housing glut must be absorbed, so new construction can begin again. For the labor market to fully stabilize, we need to see the labor force growing, the number of payroll jobs growing and the unemployment rate going down,Ž Snaith added. Were seeing gradual improvements, but theres still signi“ cant healing to go, and its a process that will take years.Ž At 6.3 percent, Monroe County has the states lowest unemployment rate. It was followed by Liberty County (6.5 percent); Walton County (6.8 percent); Alachua County (6.9 percent); and Leon County (7.0 percent). Most of those counties have a relatively high proportion of government employment. Flagler County has the highest unemployment rate (13.8 percent) in Florida in April 2011, followed by Miami-Dade (13.2 percent); Hernando County (12.9 percent); Hendry County (12.8 percent); and St. Lucie County (12.3 percent). For the most part, the areas continue to suffer from a poor construction market. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 2, 2011 – Page 5B At participatingBloxham Cutoff and Hwy 319 Crawfordville Wakulla Station Spring Creek Road and Hwy 98 Look for Inside all Stop-n-Save locations!

But if you receive a considerably smaller monetary windfall, whether a tax refund, divorce settlement, inheritance or work bonus, there are actions you can take to positively impact on your current “ nancial situation. First, take a breath. Before going on a spending spree, stash the money in a savings account until youve examined your total “ nancial picture. Weigh existing debts, upcoming expenses and future needs to make sure you apply the money where its needed most. Wake up and smell the tax windfall. Working Americans have larger paychecks this year due to a tax break that cuts their share of Social Security payroll taxes by close to one-third. However, a recent poll on the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) website revealed that nearly half of the respondents were unaware of this windfall. Some people will see an extra $2,000 in their paychecks this year, but regardless of the amount, put this money to good use while you have it, as the tax cut was only approved for 2011,Ž said Gail Cunningham, spokesperson for the NFCC. Save for emergencies. To protect your family against the impact of a layoff or other unexpected “ nancial crisis (such as a medical emergency, car accident or theft), set aside enough cash to cover at least six months of living expenses. Pay off debt. Before investing the money, paying off outstanding debt “ rst might be better … things like credit cards, car and student loans, and home equity loans/lines of credit. Start with debts having the highest interest rates “ rst, then work your way down. But remember: Interest for certain types of loans, such as federally insured student loans, mortgages and home equity loans/ lines of credit may be taxdeductible. Save for retirement. Many people chronically underfund their retirement savings. One relatively painless strategy is to contribute a portion of your windfall into an IRA or 401(k) plan. Its easy to have the money automatically withdrawn from your paycheck or bank account and the tax advantages these plans offer will make your savings grow even faster. Finance college. If youve got kids, youre probably already worrying about paying for college. Although your own retirement security should come “ rst (you can always borrow for education, but not for retirement), if you do get a windfall, consider opening a 529 Qualified State Tuition Plan or a Coverdell Education Savings Account … two savings methods that offer terri“ c tax advantages. Budget. Once youve used your windfall to pay off debt or start a savings plan, dont slip back into bad habits. Numerous free budgeting tools, including interactive budget calculators, are available online at sites such as the U.S. Financial Literacy and Education Commissions MyMoney. gov (www.mymoney.gov), the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (www.nfcc.org) and Practical Money Skills for Life, (www.practicalmoneyskills. com), a free personal “ nancial management program run by Visa Inc. And “ nally, dont forget to reward yourself for having the discipline to use your financial windfall wisely. I like the 90/10 rule, where 90 percent goes for debt payoff or savings and 10 percent is to splurge on something fun.Jason Alderman directs Visas “ nancial education programs.

Use “ nancial windfalls wiselyState jobless rate dips to 10.8 percent in AprilBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netWakullas unemployment rate was down in April, to 7.6 percent from 7.7 percent in March, according to the state Agency for Workforce Innovation. A year ago, in April 2009, Wakulla Countys unemployment was 8.0 percent. In 2008, it was 4.5 percent. The unemployment rate in Florida was down to 10.8 percent in April from 11.1 percent in March. Wakulla County continues to have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state. Of 67 counties in Florida, Wakulla had the 10th lowest jobless rate.

In 2009, Hawaii celebrated the 50th anniversary of its statehood. The road to statehood was not an easy one. Bills to make Hawaii a state had come up in Congress several times before, but none had passed until 1959. After the Senate and the House of Representatives passed the Hawaii Statehood Bill in March 1959, Hawaiians were given a chance to vote for or against statehood. Over 90% voted for it. President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed Hawaii a state at an official ceremony at the White House on August 21, 1959. At the ceremony, the newly designed American flag with 50 stars was shown.The 50th Hawaii is made up of many islands. Each of the following is one such island.

Yellowfangs disappearance made her the prime suspect, but Bluestar sent Firepaw after her to “ nd out the truth. Before pursuing Yellowfang, Firepaw and Graypaw took Ravenpaw to safety. A ThunderClan patrol was on Yellowfangs trail. Firepaw and Graypaw had to “ nd her. Why dont we head into ShadowClan territory?Ž suggested Graypaw. We need to find Yellowfangs scent,Ž Firepaw explained. I hope it wont lead to ShadowClan.Ž Close to camp, Firespaw smelled Yellowfangs fear-scent. She came this way!Ž he meowed. To his dismay, Yellowfangs scent led straight to ShadowClan territory. Were Tigerclaws accusations true? The scent markers at ShadowClans border made Firepaws paws tingle. Graypaw looked around nervously. I always thought Id have more warriors with me when I entered ShadowClan territory.Ž They prowled onward into the heart of ShadowClan territory, on the lookout for ShadowClan patrols and the ThunderClan party. Graypaw spat. Theres kit blood here!Ž Firepaw sniffed. I smell it. And something else!Ž He signaled toward a tree ahead. Yellowfang sheltered behind it. They crept over the forest ” oor, keeping their bodies low, then leaped. Yellowfang yowled as they pinned her to the ground. I knew ThunderClan would blame me!Ž she hissed. Where are the kits?Ž Firepaw demanded. We can smell their blood!Ž spat Graypaw. I dont have them,Ž snarled Yellowfang. Ive come to “ nd them.Ž Why did you run? Why did you kill Spottedleaf?Ž Graypaw asked. Spottedleaf is dead?Ž There was no mistaking her shock. Relief washed over Firepaw. He could hear truth in her voice. I know who took the kits,Ž she continued. I smelled his scent. Clawface„one of Brokenstars warriors. As long as the kits are with ShadowClan, theyre in danger. Brokenstar intends to use them as warriors.Ž Theyre too small to fight!Ž Firepaw protested. Brokenstar doesnt care.Ž Yellowfangs voice was angry. He killed kits from his own Clan!Ž If he killed kits, why wasnt he punished?Ž Firepaw asked. Bitterness made Yellowfangs voice hard. He accused me of their murder!Ž How could a leader kill kits from his own Clan?Ž Graypaw demanded. Brokenstar trained them too hard and too young. He took two away for battle practice. They were dead when he brought them to me. They bore the scratches and bites of a warrior. He must have fought them himself. When their mother came, Brokenstar said he found me standing over their bodies.Ž Her voice cracked. Why didnt you tell her?Ž Firepaw asked. Yellowfang spoke heavily. Brokenstar is ShadowClans leader. Raggedstar was his father. His word is law.Ž They sat in silence. Then Firepaw meowed, Well rescue the kits. But we cant stay here. I can smell the ThunderClan patrol. If Tigerclaw is with them, hell kill you before we can explain.Ž Quick,Ž Yellowfang urged, ducking under a bush. They crouched, listening to the ThunderClan patrol come nearer. Their pawsteps raced past and away. Are we really going to try to rescue the kits alone?Ž whispered Graypaw. Yellowfang answered, I might be able to “ nd help. When Brokenstar became leader, he forced the elders to leave the camp. Some of them might help us.Ž Firepaw meowed, I might be able to persuade the ThunderClan patrol, if I can speak to them before they see Yellowfang. Graypaw, wait till we return.Ž Yellowfang sprang past the apprentices and disappeared into the bushes, and Firepaw sprinted after the patrol. Their trail was easy to follow. The angry cats werent trying to disguise their presence. Firepaw could smell Whitestorm. He sniffed again. Tigerclaw wasnt with them. He raced to catch up. The warriors turned and glared. Darkstripe, Mousefur, Runningwind, and Willowpelt were there, too. Firepaw gasped for breath. Bluestar sent me! She wanted me to “ nd Yellowfang. Is Tigerclaw nearby?Ž Firepaw asked. Whitestorm looked at him curiously. Bluestar insisted he stay to protect the remaining kits.Ž Firepaw meowed urgently, I need your help. Graypaw and I can lead you to the kits. We plan to rescue them tonight. Will you come?Ž Of course well come!Ž It will mean raiding ShadowClans camp,Ž Firepaw warned. Yellowfang can lead us there. She promised to bring help from her old allies in the camp.Ž I dont understand,Ž meowed Whitestorm. The traitor is going to rescue the kits she stole?Ž Firepaw looked into Whitestorms eyes. Yellowfang didnt take them. Nor did she murder Spottedleaf.Ž Whitestorm stared back. Lead the way,Ž he ordered. Graypaw paced restlessly. Any sign of Yellowfang?Ž Firepaw asked. Not yet,Ž answered Graypaw. She will come back,Ž promised Firepaw. Well said.Ž Yellowfang stalked from behind the tree and sat down. Three cats appeared and settled beside her. One spoke. You have come for your kits; we will help you rescue them.Ž Whats in it for you?Ž asked Whitestorm. We want to get rid of Brokenstar. He has broken the warrior code and ShadowClan suffers.Ž That simple, is it?Ž growled Runningwind. We drop into your camp, snatch the kits, kill your leader, and go home.Ž You will not meet as much resistance as you think,Ž murmured the tom. Let me introduce my friends,Ž Yellowfang meowed. Ashfur, Nightpelt, and Dawncloud.Ž Whitestorm meowed, You are skilled warriors to creep up on us like that. But are there enough of you?Ž Brokenstar is surrounded by a small group of elite warriors,Ž answered Ashfur. They would die for him. The others will “ ght only as long as they think Brokenstar is going to win.Ž What sort of loyalty is that?Ž Darkstripe asked disgustedly. Our Clan was not always like this,Ž Yellowfang answered. When Raggedstar led ShadowClan, our strength came from Clan loyalty, not fear and bloodlust.Ž She sighed. If only Raggedstar had lived.Ž How did he die?Ž asked Whitestorm. Yellowfangs eyes clouded. He was ambushed by a patrol from another Clan.Ž Is there any way of taking the kits without alerting the whole Clan?Ž asked Firepaw. Brokenstar will expect ThunderClan to try to take them. Open attack is your only hope,Ž Dawn Cloud answered. Yellowfang suggested, The ShadowClan warriors should lead me into camp. That will bring Brokenstar and his warriors into the clearing. Then Ill give the signal to attack.Ž Whitestorm nodded. Lead the way to ShadowClans camp.Ž Visit Warriorcats.com for more information on the WARRIORS series!
