Christine Corley of Sopchoppy is a single mom with a passion for cooking. Corley tried out for Master Chef along with 20,000 other home cooks. Only 100 were then ” own to Los Angeles for a chance to present their dish to a panel of three judges, Chef Gordon Ramsay, Chef Graham Elliot and restaurateur Joe Bastianich. I was scared out of my mind,Ž Corley said of appearing before the judges. Im sure they could hear my heart pounding.Ž The cooks are given one hour to prepare their dish, then appear before the judges for “ ve minutes to complete the dish. Theres cameras everywhere and people in you face,Ž Corley said. Its so nerve-racking.Ž Corley presented a soft shell crab, creamy polenta and cole slaw for the judges to taste. Bastianich told her it would be good on a sandwich and voted not to send her to the next round. Elliot gave her a yes and then it was down to Ramsay. Prior to giving his vote, Ramsay paused … causing Corley to think it was the end of the road. Instead, he described her soft shell crab as phenomenal and handed her an apron, making her one of 38 still competing for the title of Master Chef. On Tuesday, Corley made it through to the next round and became one of 18 left in the competition. Corley applied for the show in October after several family and friends told her she could do it. I didnt think I would get picked,Ž Corley said. She drove to Orlando with her best friend for an audition. She had to prepare a signature dish for a chef at Le Cordon Bleu College. She packed the car with a Weber grill, propane tank and a cooler “ lled with protein and produce. When she arrived at the college, she grilled the steak in the parking lot because she didnt want her food to go bad on the drive. She prepared a “ let mignon with sundried tomatoes and goat cheese with a lemon butter sauce and asparagus. She then came home and waited for a call. In the meantime, she began working as front manager at 101 Restaurant. Two weeks later, she received a call from the show saying she had made the top 100 and would be ” own to Los Angeles. She had her son stay with her great-grandmother in Texas while she was on the show. I just expected to be there a week and a half,Ž Corley said.

Currently, Wakulla Springs is the only known entrance. When divers made the connection between Leon Sinks and Wakulla Springs, they noticed a dozen openings along the way, but didnt have time to explore them because of time constraints, Jamison said. Now, they have been trying to “ nd those spring sinkholes that connect to the cave system. There is a need for a southern connection, Jamison said. Jamison locates sinkholes that have the potential to be the shortcut they need and the divers then come out and explore. On Friday, June 10, Jamison and several divers visited two sinkholes on the same property as Punch Bowl Sink, in hopes of “ nding an opening. The property is owned by the Weeks family. Jamison said he saw the sinkhole while looking at an aerial map and then tried to contact the family. The family met Jamison on the property and showed him all six sinkholes there. In several of the sinkholes there wasnt any line found, which tells them that no exploratory dives have been done at these sink holes before. These are pristine sink holes,Ž Jamison said. The first sinkhole the divers explored went down 100 feet and had a cave opening. Later that day, the divers put on the appropriate gear to do a cave dive and found that the cave opening got bigger and bigger. The divers went 300 feet to the south and 100 feet to the east in the cave. They laid 500 feet of new line in the virgin cave,Ž Jamison said. Jamison said there was also water ” owing from the sinkhole to the cavern. One of the other sinkholes was about 65 feet deep and had two small openings that a diver could not “ t through with two tanks. Both sinkholes were pretty clear, Jamison said.Continued on Page 12ASPECIAL TO THE NEWSCave diver James Miller died at Whiskey Still Sink.Staff reportJames Edward Miller, 50, of Longwood, died Saturday, June 11, shortly after 4 p.m. at Whiskey Still Sink, located in the Riversink area. The preliminary autopsy “ ndings from the medical examiners of“ ce on Sunday, June 12, were consistent with drowning, according to the sheriffs of“ ce. Miller was part of a Woodville Karst Plain Project team that was diving and mapping a series of sinkholes and caves that connect to Wakulla Springs. Miller was one of a three-man dive team at Whiskey Still Sink. The divers were diving to depths of 220 feet when Miller apparently attempted to use the wrong tank at the depth he had reached, according to interviews with other divers. Several oxygen mixture tanks were being used by divers in a speci“ c order at certain depths during the dive. The two divers with Miller said he dropped one of his tanks at a depth of 70 feet. They said that the tank he dropped at 70 feet was the one he needed at 222 feet. Continued on Page 12A Talks of repealing wetlands ordinance arise at meeting By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCommissioner Randy Merritt has stated from the beginning of his term that he felt the countys wetlands ordinance was redundant. At a June 9 workshop, he expressed his desire to change the comprehensive plan related to wetlands to remove the setback requirements and have all new development comply with the state and federal regulations in place. I dont hate wetlands,Ž Merritt said. My whole point of this is government redundancy.Ž Merritt said the Northwest Florida Water Management District now has jurisdiction over isolated wetlands and those regulations are strong enough. The difference in the state and local regulations is the 75-foot buffer area. He added that the NWFWMD knows more about wetlands than the countys planning staff. Im just trying to make it simple,Ž Merritt said. He wanted to see the wording be removed because he felt it was too specific and the current wetlands ordinance cannot be modified because of that language in the comp plan. I want to take it out of DCAs hands and put it in ours,Ž Merritt said. Several citizens were there to speak on the issue, many who disagreed with allowing NWFWMD to regulate the countys wetlands. Resident David Damon said the local ordinance is stricter than the state. He added that there is all this talk about eco-tourism, but the commission is discussing limiting protections for wetlands in the county. We need to protect the wetlands,Ž Damon said. He added that this discussion was clearly about development. We need to decide what direction we want our county to go,Ž Damon said. President of the Friends of Wakulla Springs Ron Piasecki wondered if anyone knew who members of NWFWMD are, and said they are appointed by the governor and not one is from Wakulla County.Continued on Page 3AFlag Day prompts patriotic celebrationFLAG DAY: Randy Anderson sings a patriotic song as R.H.

In that race on Saturday, June 4, it was a horse named Hyperactive who outran Panic II and Recovery. Given that theres not a horse track in Wakulla, NAMI made do with the horse arena at the livestock pavilion … and each horse, running separately, was timed as it ran the 75 yards onto the paddock and turned around a barrel and back out. Former NAMI Director Charlie Creel, one of the celebrity jockeys who actually rode a horse, won the race on Hyperactive. While jockey Zoe Mans“ eld had a stand-in rider, she won the real competition … to raise money for NAMI with donations, and she got pledges for more than $1,500. A good sized crowd was in attendance for the “ rstever event. Mint juleps (non-alcoholic) were served, and ladies wore their race day “ nery, including large hats. A barbecue dinner was served before the races.CELEBRITY JOCKEYS: St. Marks City Manager Zoe Mans“ eld, Tax Collector Cheryll Olah, businesswoman Sherrie Posey Miller, Supervisor of Elections Buddy Wells, Sopchoppy Public Works Director Leonard Tartt, Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond, Charlie Creel, Dr. David Keen of Wakulla Urgent Care, and Property Appraiser Donnie Sparkman.PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDENRACE DAY: At right, Superintendent of Schools David Miller blows the Call to PostŽ on his trumpet as Master of Ceremonies Merl Robb listens.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 16, 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 CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netIn a celebration that culminated in the retiring of two flags, residents of Wakulla gathered in the senior center for the Salute America program held on Tuesday. The program began with a Presentation of Colors by the Boy Scouts, and Veteran James Taylor led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance before Senior Center director R. H. Carter welcomed the audience. Pickin and Grinnin played a host of patriotic favorites, such as This Land is Your LandŽ and God Bless America.Ž Carter discussed different generations of Americans, and said that he remains optimistic that the country will become greater and greater as time goes by. As part of the Digni“ ed Disposal of Unserviceable Flags ceremony, Commander Val Fraley of the American Legion said of the American ” ag: Its intrinsic value may be tri” ing or great; but its real value is beyond price, for it is a precious symbol of all that we and our comrades have worked for and lived for and died for … a free nation of free men and women, true to the faith of the past, devoted to the ideals and practices of justice, freedom, and democracy.Ž Carter recognized special guests state Rep. Leonard Bembry and Superintendent of Schools David Miller. When you see smiles, you cant beat that,Ž Carter said of the events success. Continued from Page 1ADo we want political decisions telling us how to manage our wetlands?Ž Piasecki asked. Resident Hugh Taylor said, Wetlands are water and water is the new oil.Ž He added that there is out of town interest in the countys water. Merritt said state regulations wont allow anyone to come in and dredge wetlands. Resident Chuck Hess said if activity isnt regulated locally, private groups will bene“ t and the public as a whole will pay the cost.Ž Resident Ralph Thomas agreed with Merritt, that if someone else already covers the protection of wetlands, there is no need for overlap. Commissioner Jerry Moore agreed with Merritt on the issue and said he was for less rules and regulations and a less strict wetlands ordinance. Commissioner Alan Brock said he probably wouldnt support a major comprehensive plan change. Commissioner Lynn Artz said the wetlands ordinance was very balanced and she was comfortable with the language in the comp plan. Following this discussion, another workshop was held that also dealt with removing speci“ cs from the comp plan. This dealt with removing the requirements for performance based treatment systems and treatment levels for central wastewater treatment. We need to address that in an ordinance,Ž Merritt said. He added that the language doesnt give the county any ” exibility. The comp plan says when an existing septic system fails or requires replacement, it shall be replaced with a performance based septic system and they will be inspected every three years. All new developments with septic systems will be required to have the performance based systems. Moore said they just took a blanket and threw it across the entire county.Ž Several members of the audience said the performance based systems may be needed in certain areas that are near water, but may not be necessary in other areas. There is also language in the comp plan that addresses the standards for nitrogen levels. Brock agreed with Merritt that this one dealing with septic was too speci“ c. One problem with requiring these performance based systems is their high cost. Artz said there is a current study being done on implementation of ground water protection measures related to onsite wastewater treatment systems, as well as central wastewater treatment facilities. She wanted the commission to wait on the study before deciding to remove anything from the comp plan and instead use the results to construct the best plan. Commissioner Mike Stewart said, Ive hated the performance based systems.Ž He was on board with Merritts plan of removing the language for both items in the comp plan. An item will be presented at a future commission meeting to bring changes to the comp plan relating to wetlands and treatment of sanitary sewage.Talks of repealing wetlands ordinance ariseBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAt a workshop held on June 9 regarding the new community center, the county commission chose to move forward with improving the two existing buildings on the property and smaller projects on the site. These improvements include opening up what was previously a church, taking out the pews and looking at improving the stage that is currently in the building. There was also an idea to include a folding partition wall to allow two activities to go on simultaneously in the building. The other building would house storage space, as well as of“ ce space and a kids zone. The commission also agreed that there was a need for a commercial kitchen. As far as small projects at the center, the commission directed staff to look into adding a playground, walking trail and community garden. The commission also discussed the conceptual master plan and how they want the community center to look in the future. Surveys were done by those in the community and an overwhelming percentage wanted a pool, then a playground, walking trail and gymnasium. This survey was mainly “ lled out by parents, so several students put together a survey for the youth of the community. Students wanted a pool, outdoor basketball court and open field areas. Indoors, students wanted a bowling alley, weight lifting and teen dances. Commissioner Alan Brock said he didnt feel the county needed a bowling alley. Commissioners Jerry Moore and Mike Stewart also didnt see the need. There was also a lack of majority support for a gym. However, there was support for a pool. Ive always been for a swimming pool,Ž Stewart said. The commission also discussed funding options to pay for these additions. The county was given $392,000 in legislative appropriation to construct a community center. Not until after buying the current community center did they “ nd out they couldnt use this money to purchase an existing building. These funds must be spent by September 2013. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said what the county can use the money for is vague. Barden said in speaking with those at the federal level, they have been susceptible to remodeling and additions, but not to adding a pool. In addition to the legislative appropriation money, there is $150,000 from the 1-cent sales tax for public facilities and $175,000 from parks and recreation impact fees. I dont want to spend every dime weve got,Ž Merritt said. Merritt wanted to see the county spend just the $392,000. Brock said if they stick to just that amount, their options are limited. Stewart added that the impact fees are just sitting there and have to be used. The commission decided to move forward with the remodeling of the existing buildings and smaller projects. It also plans to submit what they will use the $392,000 on before they do anything to make sure it will be approved. At the meeting, the commission also discussed the possibility of a partnership with the YMCA. The county sent out a request for proposals for an organization to run the center at no cost to the county and received one response, which was from the YMCA. President of the Capital Area YMCA Don Franklin said the organization would only offer the activities the county wanted. The YMCA would charge a fee for its services to cover its expenses. Currently, the county is in negotiations with the YMCA to begin offering programs August 1. There is also an agreement being drafted between Volunteer Wakulla and the county to help staff the facility. In exchange, Volunteer Wakulla would be allowed to use of“ ce space at the community center. Prior to the YMCA being able to offer services, the commission wanted the facility to be able to be used now. Sitting empty and idle is doing no good,Ž Stewart said. According to Artz, Wakulla Parks and Recreation Department will be offering a summer camp at the site.Board moves forward with improvements to community center CAROLE TOLERTRIBUTE: Photos and other memorabilia on display at the Flag Day ceremony held at the senior center.Flag Day prompts patriotic celebrationCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe St. Marks City Commission voted to hire a grants administrator and engineer for the $600,000 state grant it has received. The city was noti“ ed on June 6 that the state Community Development Block Grant it was seeking had been funded. The money is for economic revitalization of the city and will be spent on lighting, sidewalks, landscaping and parking along Port Leon Drive … the main road through town. At the city commission meeting on Thursday, June 9, Fred Fox was hired as grants administrator and Joe Hope of Hydra Engineering was hired as engineer. City Commissioner Phil Cantner said he was looking forward to meeting with Hope to discuss a vision for the city and to impress upon him the need for something spectacular. In other matters before the city commission: € Insurance issues related to the annual Stone Crab Festival were discussed, including limiting the liability to $1 million for the non-pro“ t group thats been organized to handle the festival. The goal is to relieve the city of any liability for the festival, which celebrates the opening of stone crab season in October and brings in thousands of people to the small town. € City Manager Zoe Mans“ eld and St. Marks Waterfronts Director Billy Bishop were appointed to represent St. Marks at future meetings related to Wakulla Countys designation as a Rural Area of Economic Concern. The designation, which was awarded to Wakulla County based on a number of problems affecting the county including the BP oil spill, gives the county certain incentives to improve economic conditions. € The annual “ reworks show is $900 short of the cash needed, Mansfield reported to city commissioners. Mayor Chuck Shields asked to be allowed to pursue private donations from donors before dipping in to city funds to make up the shortfall.CITY OF ST.

Although the 158-page bill contains many provisions relating to elections administration, there are several changes that will directly affect voters this upcoming 2012 election season. Beginning with the Presidential Preference Primary: it may be as late as Oct. 1 before an appointed committee decides the date. What we know with certainty is that the date will be in the timeframe of the “ rst Tuesday in January and the “ rst Tuesday in March of 2012. In order to properly prepare for this election, we are hoping for a decision sooner than later,Ž and our state association … the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections … is actively lobbying Gov. Rick Scott, Senate President Mike Haridopolos and Speaker Dean Cannon to expedite the decision on the date for the Presidential Preference Primary. The legislation also changed the primary election date from 10 weeks prior to the general election to 12 weeks prior, which will be Aug. 14, 2012. The general election currently scheduled for Nov. 6, 2012 has not changed. The bill reduces the early voting period from the 14-day period to eight-days starting 10 days before an election. Due to the popularity of early voting in Wakulla County, we will have early voting at the elections of“ ce starting on the second Saturday before an election, running for 10 hours, closing Sunday, then running Monday through Saturday for 10 hours a day. The hours of voting will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Also of note in the legislation is a new provision which requires voters who attempt to change their address from another county on Election Day to cast a provisional ballot. There is an exemption in place for active uniformed service members or family, but this provision is counter to the procedure in place since the conversion to the statewide Florida Voter Registration System, which allowed anyone with an active Florida voter registration to change their address and vote on Election Day. It will be more important than ever that voters are aware of their responsibility in keeping their voter registration current. Anyone moving into the county should make the address change as soon as possible in order to eliminate any delays when voting. The legislation provides some ” exibility in reporting address changes within Florida over the phone or electronic means and the voter must provide date of birth. Change of party and name can be done on signed written notice, registration form and must include date of birth or voter registration number. Also, visit our website www.wakullaelection.com to complete a voter registration form and mail it to our of“ ce. With respect to voting by mail, the legislation has once again changed the timeframe for which a vote-by-mail (absentee) ballot request is valid. We will return to honoring a mail ballot request for two election cycles. Although Wakulla County has a long tradition of getting vote-by-mail ballots to voters as early as possible, the recently passed bill mandates that we mail overseas military and civilian ballots 45 days before elections and requires the mailing of domestic ballots between the 35th and 28th day before an election. These facets of HB 1355 are a small part of an extensive rework of the Florida Election Laws. My staff and I pledge to continue to make Wakulla County the standard for excellence with elections administration. Please stop by the of“ ce or contact us at (850) 9267575 with any questions you may have or e-mail hwells@mywakulla.com, cgreene@mywakulla.com or lgreen@mywakulla.com if you have any questions.Henry BuddyŽ Wells is Wakulla County Supervisor of Elections.A look at legislative changes to the election laws It will be more important than ever that voters are aware of their responsibility in keeping their voter registration current.Editor, The News: What I have to say covers a lot of different areas and subjects but I will do my best to stay on point. The county is crying right now about this $500,000 budget de“ cit and for months has seen this train-wreck coming. The main problem is there is no leadership on the county commission … i.e, Mike Stewart, Alan Brock, Lynn Artz. Then theres ESG, Wakulla Countys Georgia-outsourced public works. The transfer station has been sold to the people as being this big burden or “ nancial problem, Its not! If operated properly and the funds not misappropriated to pay ESGs management cost to the tune of almost $2 million a year it would be a cash cow for the county. To be fair, ESG has taken a reduction twice under the condition that their contract is extended. I dont really see this as a favor to the county. The transfer station madeŽ a pile of money, they charge $85 dollars a ton for solid waste. Its compacted into a container averaging 10 tons = $850 and hauled to Tallahassee where it is dumped for $48 a ton. Ten tons = $480. Theres a 50-mile round trip at about $80 worth of diesel plus two man hours $20 for a grand total of 480+80+20 = $580 with a $270 pro“ t “ ve times a day. Which this leads to the next big problem … are we running “ ve times a day anymore? NO! The county wouldnt give a break to any of the small commercial haulers which accumulated some large debt for them that they couldnt pay. So what happened next is they started hauling it to the Franklin County transfer station at a much cheaper rate. Wakulla County has a ordinance against this but wont enforce it because it lets WASTE PRO haul 90 percent of its pickup including Wal-Mart, St. Marks Powder etc.. to its own land“ ll. Waste Pro visits our transfer station once maybe twice a week sometimes. The transfer station makes money on aluminum cans, cardboard, plastic and especially the metal pile. A citizen can dump all metal free, then a outside contractor compacts it and pays the county 53 cents on the dollar. A safe bet would be 70 tons a year. There is a bleeding hole at the transfer station, the glass recycling container. Mr. Fleming should have eliminated this years ago but due to political correctness wouldnt do his job and explain this problem to the BOCC. There is nowhere to take glass to be recycled, period. So the people who separate the heavy glass from their trash … i.e., small commercial pickup … get to dump it for free. Every two weeks there is a container with 24,000 pounds of glass that gets dumped into the compactor with the rest of the household trash. In the end, the taxpayer foots the bill. One other thing I wanted to mention was all the multi-bin recycling containers at the Wakulla County Schools are picked up and dumped into the compactor with the rest of the household trash because there is no manpower to handle this recyclable material. In closing there other big problems like properly closing the Construction and Demolition hill which they need a million dollars to do. But again is a byproduct of bad management a leadership by the BOCC and ESGs director of operations. It seems now they are leaning toward a single service provider so they can play politics and wash their hands of it. That in itself will be a whole new train wreck. Anyone living on a small dirt road is sure to still have to put the trash in your car or truck a take it to a centralized container. We will be in contract to ever-increasing prices with no competition no way out. We should: 1. Pay to update our transfer station and, 2. Stay away from a single service provider (we dont have the population density) and, 3. Hold those accountable for this mess next election cycle. Gallagher Crook ctechmotorsports@msn.comREADERS WRITE:Countys garbage system is a messEditor, The News: For those citizens who left the June 6 county commission meeting early, it appears once again the board will be raising the subject of limiting citizen participation (censoring) at those meetings. Commissioner Randy Merritt introduced limiting citizen comments on issues before the Board. One suggestion was to put Citizens to be Heard at the end of the meeting, another to put it at the beginning, even another not to let citizens speak at all. One comment overheard, and recorded following adjournment, was Commissioner Merritt saying, I got the ball rolling, its up to you now.Ž He was referring to other members of the board. That comment was as close to an admission of other commissioners having prior knowledge, as I have heard. How could that be when there is not supposed to be any prior communications between the board members per the Sunshine Laws? There have been many comments about citizens attacking the board, being nasty and vindictive. It is time the citizens of this county wake up to hidden agendas of some commissioners and start looking up records for themselves. What you are seeing is the frustration of a group of very concerned citizens who put in hours of research before commenting on an issue. Personally, when I see the Ždoe in headlightsŽ expressions on the faces of our commissioners, I know they are not listening to FACTS presented, dont care, and wont respond to comments. They dont even respond by asking a member of their staff to investigate. So if they dont listen to the supported facts, why would any citizen make a prepared statement regarding the issues? The boards mind is already made up and the vote is cast! The budget process is about to start. Last year, the board didnt listen to common sense and facts presented. They didnt take action on accountability. They found a way to rob Peter to pay Paul. Some commissioners have the audacity to say we are not broke if we have $50 dollars coming in and $50 to pay out. The commission has spent our reserves and has turned to the sheriff to retrieve other taxpayer monies he has been holding. The county now has no monies for unexpected contingencies. Their solution is to furlough all commission employees one day a week, cutting their income by 20 percent. Do you think thats a good approach? Disgusting! Wake up, Wakulla! Charles Hickman CrawfordvilleBoard seeks to limit citizen participationEditor, The News: An open letter to the people of Wakulla County: Dear Citizens, A few months ago, by their admission, our Board of County Commissioners said the county was not broke,Ž as stated by Commissioner Mike Stewart. Then last week, the BOCC said that the county was, in fact, broke. In an attempt to balance their budget they hastily tried to close the library and the animal shelter, among other things, and lay-off county employees. Then, in the same meeting, the Sheriffs Department came up with $200,000 so the BOCC did not have to make these rash, random cuts. In another meeting, the board followed their own guidelines to hire a new county administrator. When the nominee was selected, they decided not to hire this person and to re-start this time consuming and expensive process. Today I learned that Commissioner Jerry Moore is going to recommend that the person the board rejected for the position, be hired. The BOCC, now, wants to add a one cent tax that will affect all of us, yet they waived impact fees for developers which could have brought hundreds of thousands of dollars into the county coffers. Now, this Board is tampering with the essence of the county itself, threatening to destroy our natural habitats. They are threatening our drinking water and wetlands. Commissioners Randy Merritt, Moore and Stewart want to change our comprehensive plan so that new developments can be built in marsh lands and up to wetland lines. This means they are opening the door for a small group of people, including campaign contributors, investors, and developers, to pro“ t off of, and destroy the habitats that we all use to live, work and play. They are threatening our countys drinking water and the ecosystems that our seafood and tourism industry depends on for survival. I urge you to watch the Board of County Commissioners on TV every other Monday, starting June 20, to see whose interests they are representing and to see how they spend your tax dollars. I also urge you to write letters to the editor, make phone calls to the board and send emails, or come and show your support at the meeting where they attempt to change our Comprehensive Plan that protects our resources. The date for this meeting will be advertised in The Wakulla News. By the time we vote them out of of“ ce, it will be too late. Please be proactive now. Sue Damon Shell Point Editors Note: The next county commission meeting has been moved to Tuesday, June 21.Commission threatening to destroy habitatEditor, The News: Rotary Youth Camp for kids with disabilities, has been running every summer in Quincy since 1995.

God bless you all. Laura Floyd muscratlaura@aol.comEditor, The News: The lead story in The Wakulla News, Board Averts Financial CrisisŽ on June 9, reported that I voted against last years county budget. However, your story failed to mention that I pointed out at the meeting that I had voted against the budget seven of the eight years I was a county commissioner. And I did that because I believed that the administrative staff was bloated and too costly, meaningful budget cuts were not being made and the county was not living within its means.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 16, 2011 – Page 5ABy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAfter several years of brainstorming, the county commission has “ nally adopted the Crawfordville Town Plan. Included in the plan is the establishment of a Crawfordville Planning District and core area, which would create boundaries for each. The plan also calls for the development of a cultural and historical town square around the courthouse, updating the comp plan to change future land use categories urban 1 and 2 to town center 1 and 2, establishing an overlay district, developing new zoning districts including cottage commercial and neighborhood serving commercial, developing density and intensity standards, developing design guidelines and building arrangement and site plan standards, limiting building height to no more than three stories and implementing a sidewalk improvement program. Other ideas were to develop a regional storm water facility, develop a tree planting program, modify the enterprise zone and realign Cajer Posey Road to serve as an alternative corridor around the Crawfordville core. There was also an idea to look at creating a community redevelopment agency to implement projects, such as U.S. 319 intersection improvements. The plan includes improvements to four intersections, which would be done in increments. The intersections are 319 and Wakulla Arran Road, 319 and Ivan Church Road, 319 and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Road and 319 and Bloxham Cutoff. The commission voted unanimously to accept the town plan and direct staff to advertise a public hearing for establishing the boundaries of the overlay by ordinance, direct staff to draft new future land use designations and bring the proposals back and direct staff to look into a CRA and present alternatives to the commission. In other news, Commissioner Jerry Moore wanted the commission to change the countywide golf cart ordinance it recently adopted to the state statutes and regulations. This would remove the inspections and fees and allow carts to be driven by those 14 and up, instead of requiring drivers to have a drivers license. I still feel like 16 is the best age,Ž Artz said. She added that she was frustrated that the county was wasting time and money by changing something they just passed. The commission voted four to one, with Artz opposing, to amend the ordinance and schedule a public hearing on the issue. State Rep. Leonard Bembry, D-Greenville, gave a legislative update to board members of the Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, June 14. Bremby declared the recent legislative session a challengeŽ and although he did not vote in approval of the budget as it was presented, he indicated progress had been made in favor of small businesses. Bembry told the board it was a pleasure to continue serving citizens in his district and to have the opportunity to make a difference in their lives. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA homebuilder from Grand Junction, Colo., stopped by Wakulla County on June 8 as part of his campaign for presidency. John Davis, owner of Blue Star Industries, made a commitment to travel to every county in the U.S., which has more than 3,000 counties. The tour started on Jan. 10 and so far, Davis and his family, who are a big part of his grassroots haul across the country, have traveled to 655 counties. Davis is married to Debra and they have six children and four grandchildren. The family stays for just about 30 minutes in each county to speak with people who live in the area and listen to their opinions about America and the current status of the government. The family travels for two weeks at a time in their motor home, then head home and take a week off before heading back out on the open road. They have made six trips so far. Davis calls himself a conservative Republican and is seeking the Republican nomination. Davis said he has never been in politics before. But, he said, God spoke to my heart a year ago to run for president.Ž He said he believes his has the business experience necessary to become president because government is a business. I dont want to be president, but I do want to serve my country,Ž Davis said.Bembry gives updateTAMMIE BARFIELDCOUNTY COMMISSIONCrawfordville Town Plan adopted PHOTOS BY JENNIFER JENSENSTUMPING FOR PRESIDENT: Republican candidate John Davis has vowed to travel to every county in the country as part of his campaign.

Eastern Wakulla County residents received good news this week with the announcement of the June 20 opening of a new local food assistance source. The Wakulla United Methodist Church will open the new food pantry every third Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the fellowship hall at 1584 Old Woodville Highway. We have been in great economic hardship for many months now, but it is not over,Ž said the Rev. Janice Henry-Rinehart of WUMC. It is even more important than ever to show who we are as the children of God and our desire is to hopefully involve the churches in our part of Wakulla County to assist with donations, volunteers and bring people in need to our site as together we all become the hands and feet of Jesus to those who are hurting and hungry.Ž The economy is such that we are seeing the need for food assistance increase each year,Ž said George Dock, one of the new pantrys volunteers. It was recently reported that food banks and soup kitchens helped more than 37 million Americans last year, a 46-percent increase from 2006. Dock said, The pantry will serve those residents in need of food who live on the eastern side of the county.Ž For more information about eligibility, please call the church of“ ce at 421-5741.

She went home to meet her Saviour and be reunited with her husband of 42 years, James McIver Sr., and her brother, Elmer Barbree, who preceded her in death. Choppy was born in Tallahassee, on Jan. 23, 1949, to Rufus and Frances Barbree. She graduated from James S. Rickards High School in June 1967 and was married two weeks later. She worked as an assistant at Rickards and then as a secretary with a local insurance company before being blessed to stay home with her three children. When all of the children went to school, she started driving the bus to stay close to and involved in their lives. She was a well-loved driver and volunteer at Shadeville Elementary for seven years. Choppy cared for her mother for many years as her health failed and then nursed her in her own home after a severe stroke. Her primary job seemed to be packing asphaltŽ as she ran errands for McIver Floor Sanding and shuttled her children (and ALL of their friends) from place to place. Possibly her most loved jobŽ was being a grandmother. Her “ nal moments were spent in the company of all seven grandchildren. Her family has peace in knowing that she was saved at the age of 11 and they will be reunited with her in Heaven. Services were held at Wakulla United Methodist Church on Monday, June 13. The family welcomed guests for visitation before the funeral. Interment was in the church cemetery.

Wakulla Rotary sponsors Interact, a service club at Wakulla High School, and applicants must be active members of that organization in order to be eligible for the scholarships. The three scholarship winners were Shawn Dolce, Shelby Coleman and Kenoshia Jackson. Dolce was active in Interact for two years and served as its president in 2010-11. She has a strong interest in “ lm production, having taken that class for the past three years at WHS, and was instrumental in producing a video public service announcement on bullying to be aired at WHS. The service project for Interact of creating a PSA was the idea of Jackson, another scholarship recipient. She plans to go to Florida A&M University and major in Chemistry. The third recipient, Coleman was on the WHS Honor Court, graduating sixth in her class, and was vice-president of Interact this past year. Her plans are to go to Florida State University and she is attracted to the “ eld of environmental science.

Close to $110,000 in grants was awarded to Pop Warner groups this year. Pop Warner organizations must be in good standing and directly serve youth ages 5-15 in order to receive national grants. Furthermore, associations must prove that an equipment or uniform grant would impact the organization in one of the following ways: help to develop a new program, increase the number of participants in an existing program, decrease overall cost of the program for youth/families, and/or enhance the experience to retain youth in the program. We are proud to present close to $110,000 in equipment and apparel grants to our dedicated teams this year,Ž said Jon Butler, Executive Director of Pop Warner Little Scholars. Our annual grants are just one of the ways Pop Warner strives to provide a comprehensive and affordable youth football, cheer and dance program for our scholar athletes across the country.Ž Founded in 1929 and headquartered in Langhorne, Penn., Pop Warner Little Scholars is the worlds largest youth football, cheerleading and dance organization and the only youth sports organization that mandates academic pro“ ciency as a prerequisite for participation.

Its not even summer yet so I guess were in for another hot and dry June, July and August. As long as there is a breeze its not too bad out there but when the wind quits it can get pretty bad. Be sure and take plenty of water and wear sunscreen. This weekend will be the 23rd Annual Big Bend Saltwater Fishing Tournament. It will start on Thursday morning with “ nal weigh-in and presentation of prizes on Sunday afternoon. The of“ cial weigh-in stations are Shields Marina in St. Marks, Port St. Joe Marina in Port St. Joe and Carrabelle Boat Club in Carrabelle where the “ nal weigh-in and prizes will be presented. Due to federal changes in “ shing regulations, amberjack and black grouper will be removed from the categories of “ sh that can be caught. Red grouper will take the place of black/gag grouper and red snapper I believe will take the place of amberjack. This is a great tournament every year and a good time for father and kids to go fishing together. You must be registered by midnight on Thursday, June 16. Go to www.bigbendsaltwaterclassic.com. On June 18, the King“ sh Tournament for Make a Wish Foundation will be held at C Quarters in Carrabelle and on July 9 there will be the “ nal tournament. Then on Aug. 6 and 7 will be the eighth Annual C Quarters King“ sh Shootout to benefit the Leukemia Research Foundation. On July 23 will be the seventh Annual Youth Fishing Tournament held out of C Quarters for kids younger than 16 years of age. Capt. Randy Peart said “ shing around St. George continues to be good and the big trout have moved into the shallow grass ” ats. Randy says “ sh white Gulps under a Cajun Thunder in three to four feet of water. Some reds are being caught but not many. Tarpon are starting to show up in good numbers and there are plenty of Spanish on the East End of the Island. On Friday and Saturday Randy fished out of the Econ“ na and caught a lot of “ sh. He had to go to 11 feet of water and “ sh the grass and rock piles. They caught quite a few trout and seabass along with blues and Spanish. Most of their “ sh came on a ounce lead using a Gulp sardine colored three-inch pogie. Dr. Phil Sharp went out of Alligator Point with Dr. Joe Camps of Tallahassee the past two Saturdays and they came back both days with their limits of real nice snapper. They were “ shing in 90 feet of water in sight of V Tower. On Sunday Phil took one of his doctor friends and his son out and they “ shed for trout on the shoals. They came in with nine nice trout to 18 inches. Tom Riddle and party went out on Friday looking for red snapper and came back with three snapper, some red grouper and the biggest black sea bass he said he has caught. They also threw back a lot of black grouper. Capt. Luke Frazier “ shed off Piney Island on Thursday and said they only kept four trout but they were all more than 18 inches. He was using a white Gulp in three to four feet of water. Capt. Vic Davis has been catching some big blues out on the shoals using top water baits. He is “ shing out there on the last of the falling tide and taking the front hooks off the plugs to keep from catching two blues at once. He is also catching some nice trout. Fishing around Keaton Beach is excellent. Lots of big trout being caught and everyone is getting their limit. Live pin“ sh or pig“ sh under a Cajun Thunder in three to four feet of water has been the best bait to use though some are using the Gulp. Their offshore “ shing is also good and reports say they will have the best scallop season they have had in “ ve years and from what I understand last year was absolutely incredible. Hopefully this is gonna be the case at St. Marks. Remember the season opens on Saturday, June 25 and runs through Sept. 15. I fished with David Troughton and his wife Debbie on Friday and we went to the shoals and “ shed in eight to nine feet of water. We caught nine trout and most were more than 18 inches. They used a three inch and four inch grub “ shed on the bottom. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good “ shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Firearms safety and outdoor skills is setSpecial to The NewsThe popular Firearms Safety and Outdoor Skills Program is back for 2011 and this year youths have their choice of two sessions. The “ rst session will be held Monday through Friday, June 20 to June 24 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Wakulla Sheriffs Of“ ce Training Center and Firing Range. The program is open to boys and girls ages 12 to 16. The second session of the program will be held Monday through Friday, July 18 to July 22, also from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Space is limited to 30 youths. The cost is $100 per student which includes lunch and beverages each day. WCSO instructors will provide a hands-on learning experience based on the Florida Hunter Safety Course. Classroom time will be kept to a minimum with teaching done at the range in an outdoor environment. Students will receive training in a variety of topics aimed at introducing them to the lifetime sport of hunting. Subjects include how to use a map and compass; observation of wildlife and reading wildlife signs; developing outdoor survival skills; “ eld “ rst aid; and hunting skills and safe use of ri” es, shotguns and archery equipment which will enhance the hunting experience. Students will also be exposed to the GREAT and SAVE programs to reinforce a positive approach to dealing with social problems facing youth. Once the student successfully completes the course, they will receive their Florida Hunter Safety course certi“ cation which is required for anyone born after June 1, 1975 to purchase a Florida hunting license. To register for one of the programs, call Major Larry Massa at 745-7105. The range is located at 65 Qualify Lane in Sopchoppy.Kathy Barco to chair wildlife commissionKathy Barco of Jacksonville was elected Wednesday by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to serve as the commissions chairwoman for the next year, replacing Rodney Barreto, who is retiring after six one-year terms as chairman. Kathys dedication to conservation efforts in Florida, coupled with her experience serving on the commission since 2004, will lead this commission to continued success,Ž said Commissioner Richard Corbett. My fellow Commissioners and I look forward to working with and supporting her in this capacity.Ž Barco was appointed to the commission by Gov.

As promised, the “ nal numbers are in and we are pleased to announce that the Ready, Set, In” ate was a great success and the 2010 World Record was broken. Alex Gulde sent out the following announcement out this week: The “ nal results are in and the total number of participants were 1,685 … which is 531 more than last year. This included 1,191 in” atable life jackets … 37 more than last year… and 494 inherently buoyant life jackets which included 13 dogs. There were a record total of 99 events worldwide! This included 87 in the United States, eight in Canada, one in the United Kingdom, one in Japan, one in Brazil and one in Australia. Bravo Zulu to all involved. We are all looking forward to a bigger event next year and for years to come! Saturday was a busy day for many in Flotilla 12 as we held a Safe Boating Class in Tallahassee and a ramp day was held in Carrabelle. Five students attended the About Boating Safely class. John Denmark, Alex Gulde, Mark Rosen, Duane Treadon and Of“ cer Charles Higman for Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission imparted their knowledge to the students and had fun sharing stories and experiences. It was a day full of learning and the small class size really allowed students to ask questions. We are always grateful to have a representative from FWC who can talk about our local area and the rules of the road. I think the greatest tip Of“ cer Higman offered to the class was his belief that we will have a very good scallop season due to our lack of rain. At the same time Tim Ashley went down to Carrabelle with Norma and Phil Hill to help Leon Wiesner and Dave Rabon. Leon and Dave are working to earn the Vessel Examination quali“ cation and to do this they both need to complete supervised vessel exams. Although it was a slow day for vessel exams, Leon was able to complete his five supervised exams. As the SGI Detachment continues to evolve, we are hoping to have more and more services available to the folks living in St. George Island, Carrabelle and Apalachicola. As Sherrie reminds us, Safe Boating is No Accident. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 16, 2011 – Page 11A Almanac Brought To You By Crawfordville Branch Now Open224…4960www.fsucu.org a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiencesCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

In the beginning, most scuba divers are taught the same principals: never hold your breath while underwater, stay shallower than 130 feet of depth, go up slowly and stay within safe time exposures to avoid diving injuries. Later in life, scuba divers specialize, becoming photographers, marine biologists, ice divers and much more. Here in Wakulla County, we see folks specializing in river diving, spear“ shing, scalloping, cavern and cave diving. Recently, I had an opportunity to spend underwater time with some experienced local spear“ shing scuba divers. I had been invited out to spear“ sh many times during the past 18 months since we opened the Wakulla Diving Center, but because of the new facility demands, I could never accept. With spring came new offers and warmer waters beckoned, so I gladly accepted. I “ rst noticed that none of my diving equipment was appropriate for spearing “ sh. Upon closer inspection I realized that there is virtually no comparison between spear“ shers and the cave divers I frequently dive with these days. And lets be clear, in Florida, it is illegal to spear “ sh in fresh water, where caves usually are found. Indeed, few spear“ shers dive caves or visa-versa. I found successful spear“ shing required multiple short dives on numerous dive sites where the team drops in upon unsuspecting reef residents. The longest dive was usually around 20 minutes before the thumbs up signal was given. A cave dive requires a long single dive, at the most two long dives in a day, lasting on the average of 80 minutes each. Yet at the end of the day both groups spend the same total amount of time underwater. Cave divers carry redundant backup equipment and 50 percent more breathing gas than they plan to use. A typical cave rig can cost upwards to $5,000 and weigh 130 to 150 pounds out of the water. Their multiple specialized regulators are con“ gured with extra long hoses (seven feet) and multiple in” ators. I can play games on their dive computer. They carry three or more lights, some with lights as bright as those of a car, knives that are very small and specialized, and reels to run between rooms to show the way out, all attached to a harness with a wing-like in” ation bag on their back. Spear-toting scuba divers, however, want simplicity and light weight, with a single multi-purposed regulator, integrated weights in a jacket Buoyancy Compensator. They may carry a whistle, a deployable surface marker and even a small spare air cylinder should they run out of breathing gas. Oh yesƒ and a snorkel, something if found on a cave diver he would be forever ridiculed, The spear“ shing divers equipment cost about half that of the cave diver, not withstanding the cost of a boat to get out to the “ shing grounds! And then, of course there is the spear, now re“ ned to include multiple shafts, kill spikes, detachable shaft lines, one handed stringers on attached retaining clips to hold their prey. Since I love to do both, I must collect two different sets of scuba equipment, and enjoy the radically different bene“ ts of each speciality sport available right here in Wakulla County. Mark Rosen teaching the About Safe Boating class. DEP celebrates National Marina DayRecognizing the importance of marinas statewide, the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Clean Marina Program and the Association of Marina Industries celebrated National Marina Day last week, on Saturday, June 11. Gov. Rick Scott signed a proclamation honoring Marina Day in Florida. With more than 1,350 miles of coastline and 50,000 miles of inland and coastal rivers supporting a $16 billion marine industry and 200,000 jobs, Floridas water resources are crucial to the states economy and our environment,Ž said DEP Director of Sustainable Initiatives Brad Stombock. Celebrating National Marina Day brings attention to the importance of protecting Floridas waterways and allows our Clean Marinas to be recognized for their commitment to protecting our states natural and economic resources.Ž Celebrated since 2001, National Marina Day emphasizes the signi“ cance of marinas as family-friendly gateways to rivers, lakes and oceans, and highlights the importance of their roles as environmental stewards. Boaters are reminded to practice clean safe boating while enjoying Floridas waterways and oceans. Recognizing the importance of waterways, designated Clean Marinas throughout the state will provide clean boating outreach and information along with events and activities. With more than one million registered motorized vessels in Florida, environmental education within marine industries is the “ rst step toward safeguarding the states natural resources.

She is not allowed to discuss how far she made it in the show. It feels great,Ž Corley said of being chosen for the show. Im kind of humbled by it.Ž Corley said she loves food and has been working in the restaurant business since she was 13. She watches cooking shows constantly and is always trying out new recipes. Cooking comes naturally to me,Ž Corley said. However, Corley said she grew up poor and didnt experience a lot of variety of foods and ” avors. I ate a lot of stuff that wasnt quite edible,Ž Corley said. On the show, she told the judges she grew up with crap, which included toast topped with beef and gravy. Then she moved to Tallahassee when she was 18 and met friends in the restaurant business. It opened my eyes a bit,Ž Corley said. She moved to Miami and that was where her love of food really blossomed, she said. I knew food had to taste better than what I grew up with,Ž Corley said. And now, she is appearing on a national television show competing to become Master Chef. For more information, visit Corleys fan page on facebook, Christine CorleyMasterChef Season 2. The show airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.Christine Corley is on Master ChefContinued from Page 1A The divers were unable to get an oxygen tank to Miller in time to assist him. Despite dropping the tank, Miller proceeded with the dive. The deceased diver and his equipment were all collected from the scene. Two safety divers from another cave dive site in the Natural Bridge area of Woodville arrived at the Riversink site and recovered Millers body from the water. The case remains open as investigators review the oxygen mixtures in each tank. Millers dive equipment and vehicle were impounded. Miller was considered an expert diver with more than 20 years of dive experience and was a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve. Miller was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:25 p.m. Support divers estimated that Miller was in the water approximately one hour and 40 minutes. Miller and the other WKPP divers were shooting video of the cave system at the sinkhole. Miller joined the WKPP team as a basic support diver in 2002 and advanced to senior exploration diver. WKPP Project Manager Casey McKinlay said, He was a role model for many of the younger divers and well respected among the senior team divers for his abilities and commitment to exploration.Ž A few weeks ago, Miller played a signi“ cant role as part of an exploration dive team at Wakulla Springs, traveling more than two miles into Wakulla to deliver equipment with his team. Jim wanted to make a difference, he wanted to challenge himself, he wanted to explore and he wanted to be a part of the WKPPs 20 year effort to identify and explore the underground rivers feeding water to Wakulla Springs,Ž McKinlay said. McKinlay added that exploration is not without risk and explorers like Miller understood these risks. Explorers must be allowed to explore and capable, experienced explorers like Jim Miller invest a great deal of time preparing, planning and managing the risk associated with these dives for themselves and their team,Ž McKinlay added. Miller is a huge loss for the team, he said. He always had a smile and was a great friend,Ž McKinlay said. He will be missed and it will not be easy, if at all possible, to replace him.Ž Millers family has set up The Jim Miller Memorial Fund with donations going to the WKPP in his memory. The memorial fund will be used for continuing diver training and safety education efforts. Miller is survived by his mother, Margaret Miller; father, Larry A. Miller, Jr.; brother, Michael and sisterin-law, Robyn; two nieces, Krista and Kailyn Miller; one step-niece and three step-nephews; and his loving companion, Jackie Booth. Diver James Miller dies Saturday exploring a sinkholeContinued from Page 1A Finding a ” owing cave is good news, he said. What they are telling me is what I want to hear,Ž Jamison said. With the ” ow and cave opening, there is the potential that it could be a connector. It seem to be the most promising one for exploration,Ž Jamison said. The ” ow turns off and on for unknown reasons and the goal is to “ nd a conduit between these two water supplies, he added. Here, we dont know where it goes,Ž Jamison said. Wakulla is many cave systems.Ž So far, the group has only found a few. That day, the group explored two more sinkholes, but neither were promising. One was quite deep, and looked like it could have once been connected to a cave system, but a collapse has since blocked it off, according to the dive report. The other sinkhole, Woodduck Sink, was shallow and not connected to a cave, the report said. The next step for the sink hole that had potential would be for the divers to go back equipped with two tanks and do an exploratory dive of the cavern and see if it connects to the cave system. There is also a plan to explore Punch Bowl Sink and do a rebreather dive in the big cave. It had flow definitely going somewhere,Ž Jamison said. Jamison has been working with the WKPP for a decade identifying locations as part of his job as springs ambassador. Recently, Jamison was told that his job would no longer be funded by the Department of Environmental Protection. His last day is June 30. The elimination of his position came the same time DEP cut funding for the Wakulla Springs Basin Working Group and restoration plan for the spring. They dissolved our best voice in springs protection,Ž Jamison said. One thing Jamison is worried about is his access to the springs and if it will be limited since he is no longer an employee. Right now, Jamison said he has free access. Jamison has been told by people with DEP that they are actively looking for money to fund his position, but he has been told to contact various groups who might be able to help with his salary. I dont hold out a lot of hope,Ž Jamison said of DEP “ nding the money. Jamison said he will continue to look for sinkholes and keep up with the karst database because he cant walk away from it after all these years. Im going to do it for free,Ž Jamison said. And keep a feel for whats happening.Ž He said he will continue to work with the divers and the WKPP. He will also continue to take people on “ eld trips of the sinkholes, but may have to start charging for it.

His album, There Goes the Neighborhood, was released in October 2010. Mimi & The HearnDogs This group has soulful vocals, spiced with acoustic guitar and harmonica, all held together in the roux of a tasty upright bass. Hearns voice and acoustic guitar have always resonated with an af“ nity for the blues, but with this group, a wondrous mix of style and sound has found a home, decorated with jazz and rhythm and blues. Hearn has played on stages from coast-to-coast and has performed on a few choice islands also. For well over a decade, Mike Palecki (the original HearnDogŽ) has joined Hearn on a musical adventure. With his harmonica, he has played with Diamond Teeth Mary, Lucky Peterson, Sarasota Slim and Valerie Caracappa, to name a few. In addition, Palecki has toured with Randall Big DaddyŽ Webster, spreading the blues through Ireland.

Frank Lindamood and Chelsea Dix-Kessler Singer/Songwriter Frank Lindamood and Chelsea Dix Kessler, vocals/“ ddle, will perform Lindamood originals and Old Timey/Americana/Bluegrass music. Lindamood began playing music after moving to Tallahassee to begin college at Florida State University. He began playing harmonica, guitar and ukulele, and then, after “ nding a banjo in a pawn shop, started to learn the banjo. Although he didnt begin seriously writing songs until 2007, his talent is obvious and his storywriting ability impressive. He has since performed at the Florida Folk Festival almost every year since 1996, and has played at numerous other festivals, venues and private and charitable events. Lindamood published his “ rst CD, Hewed From The RockŽ in 2010, featuring all original songs. Chelsea Dix Kessler was born in South Florida, one of four children. She grew up in a family “ lled with music. Dix Kessler regularly performs with the bluegrass band, Coon Bottom Creek,Ž on fiddle and vocals. She has played with many other musicians, and is focusing on performing at festivals, private events, and venues where there is a listening audience.

Being called a crown jewelŽ of the county shows that our elected of“ cials see not only the need for the free services that we provide to more than 15,000 registered patrons during these tough economic times (with a Return On Investment of more than $17 for every $1 spent in funding), but appreciate the professional way that we go about doing it. Wed also like to thank all of our patrons who contacted the County Commissioners last week to express how important WCPL is to both them and the community at large. Our summer program for the children will go on as scheduled, along with all the other services that we provide. We encourage all to come out and see us and allow us to continue to work hard for you. Book Extravaganza Fundraiser once again a Success Our patrons came through once again on June 4 as they raised nearly $600 for the Friends of the Library at our Book Extravaganza Fundraiser. These funds go directly to fund our summer programs, required summer reading books for the students, along with other needed expenses. Keep an eye on the Friends as they are planning the “ rst silent auction to bene“ t WCPL on Friday, Sept. 23. For more information on the Friends of the Library stop by the front desk or give us a call. Red String Wayang Theatre at WCPL Join us on Wednesday, June 22 at 7 p.m. as Michael Richardson brings his Red String Wayang Theatre to WCPL for the “ rst time. Richardson uses the amazing beauty of Javanese shadow puppetry as he tells two tales: Hansel and Gretel and The Peasant who Became King. Please bring the whole family out to this original and timelessly simple way to tell a great story. This is our only Wednesday evening performance this summer so please note the change.

By Jo Ann PalmerKWCB DirectorEach year Keep Wakulla County Beautiful participates in the International Coastal Cleanup. This year is the 26th Annual Ocean Conservancys International Coastal Cleanup and has become the worlds largest volunteer effort for ocean health. Nearly 9 million volunteers from 152 countries and locations have cleaned 145 million pounds of trash from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers and the ocean on just one day each year. Keep Wakulla County Beautiful hosts the local event, which is scheduled for Saturday, September 17. This event has consistently drawn approximately 1,000 volunteers from Wakulla and surrounding counties who gather and clean our shorelines. The litter collected accounts for several tons of trash that would otherwise not be collected, but remain on our roads, beaches and shores to create unsightly piles of trash and environmental hazards. This year Bethany Mathers, board member of KWCB, suggested an art contest at the middle schools for the design of this years T-shirt. She worked with Riversprings and Wakulla Middle schools art teachers, Mina Sutton and Carol Belancsik, who challenged students to submit an entry for the contest. The contest was an opportunity for students to show off their talents, and for us to get a great design that will represent Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and the 2011 Coastal Cleanup. On the day of the event, every volunteer who participates in the cleanup receives a shirt commemorating the event. We received more than 100 entries. There were drawings of the St. Marks Lighthouse, the sunset with a silhouette of shorebirds, animals picking up litter, manatees, piers, turtles and lots of indications of trash. These students certainly recognize the need for this important event. It was dif“ cult to narrow down the ones that would be the best “ t, but the board did a great job and the winner is Dilyn Sharp. Sharp is 14 and will be starting Wakulla High School next year. His interests include skateboarding and drawing, and is looking forward to becoming involved in ROTC, which is an important partner of KWCB. He will receive a T-shirt as his prize. Congratulations. We also congratulate our honorable mentions Dallas Harris and Frances Tier Dietz, Wakulla Middle School, and Gage Chance, Riversprings Middle School, and a huge thank you to each student who submitted a drawing. We plan to make this an annual event. We will display all entries at the schools as a reminder of the event. As we begin the push for planning volunteer efforts, logistics and garnering support for the event, mark your calendar and start thinking about participation. I will be contacting local businesses who have been supporters in years past to again seek their support. This event relies solely on contributions from local businesses and individuals, and we hope to count on their support again. New this year, thanks to Pam Portwood, is that we are working with the Tourism Development Council, who offered to put together a discount package which would encourage visitors to come to Wakulla County, stay for the weekend and help us out. Portwood hopes to use this opportunity to entice visitors to come and see what Wakulla has to offer. We will begin our volunteer sign up on our website within the next month.

Dean co-authored his second single Somewhere in my Broken HeartŽ with Hall of Fame songwriter Richard Leigh, which soared all the way to No. 1 and was nominated for a Grammy. Somewhere In My Broken HeartŽ went on to win the Academy of Country Musics Song of The Year, earning Dean his first platinum album and Country Musics Top New Male Vocalist of the Year award. Deans music has sold millions world wide. Eleven top 10 singles and “ ve No. 1s, expanded this singers career, adding several acting credits to his name. Steve Leslie Leslie received his bachelors degree in guitar/jazz studies from Morehead State University in Morehead, Ky. After teaching privately in Tallahassee for eight years, he moved to Nashville in 1992. He was signed to a staff songwriting position at EMI Music Publishing and had songs recorded by Kenny Rogers, Mark Chesnutt, George Strait, Darryl Worley, Rhonda Vincent and Neal McCoy. He earned a Grammy Certi“ cate for the title cut to Ricky Skaggs 2004 Brand New StringsŽ which won a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album of the Year. He opened his own publishing company, Chord Boy Songs. He signed to Stage Three Music Publishing in 2005. Since 2007 he has maintained a career as an independent songwriter and music publisher. His new company, New Modern Songs, has published works by Darryl Worley and Darius Rucker. As a recording artist, he has two albums available; In The MiddleŽ and Greater Gravity.Ž 19 South 19 South is Monticellos Southern rock and country band. In addition to performing classic party and dance songs the group has been writing and performing its own originals. The band has performed at festivals and clubs, but is mainly booked for private functions throughout North Florida and South Georgia. In addition to their stage performance on Friday evening, the band will be playing at the after party. Band members are Heath Bass, drums, Brian Freeland, lead guitar, Brett Kelly, vocals and guitar, Jason Freeland, vocals and bass guitar. Tobacco Road There is only one word that can describe the way Tobacco Road came to fruition … fate. Singer and songwriter Eric Durrance was back in his home town of Tallahassee from Nashville after a long run of touring and living the dream in the country music scene. It wasnt long before he met the girl of his dreams and got engaged. On the night of their engagement, his new fianc wanted to show off her ring to a good friend, who happened to be dating Lex Vance. Vance saw Durrance sitting in the car and decided to go out to say hello, since they had known each other from playing in different bands in Tallahassee years ago. They got to talking about music and the good old days and decided they should get together to jam. Less than a month later, they were playing their “ rst show together as the Tobacco Road Duo. After months of playing gigs as a duo, Tobacco Road decided they wanted to expand to a full band. Durrance had played with Joe Markham for a short while in a band called High Speed Rodeo and sought him out to play drums. They practiced for a while as a trio while looking for a bass player. After a few options didnt pan out, Lex decided to look up his old bassist from The Redwood Band and SRO, Aaron Halford. Halford came out to one practice and they knew that Tobacco Road had of“ cially gone from the Tobacco Road Duo to the Tobacco Road Band. They played their first show as a band two weeks after that “ rst practice together at the 17th Annual Craw“ sh Festival at PoBoys in Downtown Tallahassee. StiffDrink,Ž their first single, is currently blasting through the airwaves of local country radio station 103.1. Sarah Mac Band The Sarah Mac Band established their musical collective out of long existing friendships. The trio started in early 2005 with the goal to create original music blending the unique styles that Sarah Mac, Claire and Charlie each brought to the group. The band just wrapped up a project featuring a series of single releases throughout 2009-10 called A Single Revolution,Ž is also the title to their full length release Revolution which features the eight singles (previously released in limited edition) plus four new tracks. The band was named the Next Big Thing in FloridaŽ by Southern Living Magazine.

For more information call 850.245.6400 By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netLeon County native Myrna Roberts Kanekkeberg knows a thing or two about the St. Marks Lighthouse. Her great-grandparents and grandfather have served as its keepers … meaning they, along with their families, kept the grounds, rescued sinking boats, entertained guests and did whatever else was needed at the lighthouse. Using the research of her historian brother John Roberts, Kanekkeberg has written Keepers of the Light: A History of the St. Marks Lighthouse and the Gresham family.Ž Kanekkeberg and Roberts decided to undertake this project, a history of the lighthouse and a collection of some of its most memorable events, because they wanted to tell the true storyŽ of the Lighthouse, as Kanekkeberg put it. Roberts visited the lighthouse and was dismayed to hear inaccurate information being given to the public. Kanekkeberg said she thought it would be an interesting story to tell, that not many people know someone who was raised in a lighthouse.Ž The project took about two years to complete, Kanekkeberg stated. Roberts searched archives from as far away as Washington, D.C., and those records were combined with family stories to create the book. One of the most memorable stories was of the time when Kanekkebergs grandfather, John Young Gresham was keeper, and a group of Eskimos came to the lighthouse … dressed in their fur clothing … before continuing on their way. That is a big mysteryŽ said Kanekkeberg. Her family still has no idea why the Eskimos traveled so far. Kanekkeberg said her favorite memory of the lighthouse was simply going there and spending the night, maybe staying for a week or two while her father of the Gresham children went goose hunting. The Greshams, the immediate family of John Young Gresham, were a happy, close-knit family. Living in such a small space, they had to get along, Kanekkeberg explained. The families of the lighthouse keepers lived challenging lives, from dealing with the havoc of hurricanes to experiencing a de“ nite sense of isolationŽ from the rest of the world, Kanekkeberg said. Fortunately, there were plenty of visitors to keep the Gresham family entertained, from the teachers that came during the summers to the frequent hunting groups that took advantage of the abundant wildlife of the area. In fact, once a paved road was built leading to the lighthouse, there was an in” ux of visitors that kept Gresham very busy. Kanekkeberg described the task of dealing with all these visitors as the most dif“ cult one that her grandfather had to face. Kanekkeberg said that in the process of publishing the book, she met a lot of interesting people, such as a woman in Carabelle whose family also served as lighthouse keepers at some point. Keepers of the LightŽ can be purchased at The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge gift shop, Wakulla County Historical Society shop in Crawfordville, Posh Gifts and Organics in Sopchoppy and Bo Lynns Grocery in St. Marks.Myrna Roberts Kanekkeberg has written a memoir and family history about the St. Marks Lighthouse Myrna R.

In a legal battle pitting Florida and half the country against the Patient Protection Act (a.k.a. ObamaCare) attorneys for the state paid their respects to federal judges at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, kind of a courtesy call during a journey that most expect will terminate at the U.S. Supreme Court. Wednesdays muchwatched arguments on whether the feds can force citizens to carry health insurance highlighted a litigation soaked week as lawsuits were filed on a number of fronts by groups unhappy with a host of issues from offshore oil drilling to gun rights. State education of“ cials, meanwhile, continued their quest to find a successor to Florida Education Commissioner Eric Smith, who stepped down Friday and will be temporarily replaced by interim commission John Winn, a repeat performer tapped as a search for a permanent replacement continues. Finally, Gov. Rick Scott brought his Jobs, Jobs, JobsŽ bandwagon to the states northern neighbor as he wrapped up a weeklong Canadian trade mission with the news that hed landed 110 jobs to reduce the ranks of the 1 million Floridians who dont have one. HEALTH CARE While Scott was in the land of universal health care, a three judge panel of the 11th Circuit appeals court on Wednesday peppered attorneys with questions in a case that could decide the future of last years health care overhaul for the United States. Florida has spearheaded legal efforts on behalf of itself and 25 other states to strike down the law that will require almost all Americans to have health insurance starting in 2014 … a requirement known widely as the individual mandate. With Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and former Attorney General Bill McCollum sitting at the front of the courtroom, lawyers for states critical of the plan said it is unprecedented for Congress to force Americans to buy a product such as health insurance. They disputed that the U.S. Constitution allows such power, an issue that is central to the sweeping health care law. Joel Dubina, chief judge of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said early in the hearing that the individual mandate is the heart of the case as lawyers for the U.S. Department of Justice tried to convince the panel that Congress was well within its rights to require it as part of the regulation of interstate commerce. Uninsured people seek care at hospital emergency rooms, shifting billions of dollars a year in costs to other people who pay them through increased insurance premiums. Congress is entitled to wide deference in the way it deals with the problem, said Acting U.S. Solicitor General Neal Kumar Katyal. Attorneys representing the states say the notion that Congress can force someone to buy a product, in this case health insurance, is anti-thematic to the concept of individual liberty. They (uninsured people) are not engaged in commerce, said Paul Clement, a lead attorney for the opponents, which also includes 25 other states. Theyre sitting in their living rooms. Theyre not doing anything. The case is perhaps the most widely watched legal challenge to the landmark federal law, which President Obama and Congress approved in March 2010. The appeal stems from a January decision by Pensacola federal judge Roger Vinson that the law is unconstitutional. McCollum … who “ led the case immediately after Obama signed it … said it raises constitutional questions about congressional powers that go far beyond health care. This is a real, real big reach, he said. Wednesdays hearing was the most visible of a handful of legal challenges fought throughout the week. On Monday, a group of physicians “ led suit in a Miami federal court to nullify a controversial measure backed by the National Ri” e Association that prohibits health practitioners from routinely asking their patients if they own guns and have them properly stored. In a battle pitting the First Amendment against the Second Amendment, attorneys representing some pediatricians and family doctors are asking U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke to throw out the recently approved measure (HB 155) they say steps illegally between a patient and their physician by limiting the types of questions practitioners can ask. Later, environmentalists “ led another federal lawsuit in Miami, this one claiming federal officials overseeing a Shell Oil request to drill in deep water in the Gulf of Mexico are relying on false assumptions and accepting inadequate safety standards to prevent a repeat of the BP Deepwater Horizon spill. Less than a year after oil stopped ” owing from the worst spill in U.S. history, a coalition of environmental groups including Sierra Club, the Florida Wildlife Federation and the Gulf Restoration Network “ led suit to stop federal of“ cials from giving the company permission to drill in deep water about 70 miles off the Louisiana coast. On the state level, Attorney General Pam Bondis of“ ce said this week she plans to appeal a Broward County judges ruling that tickets issued by police of“ cers for running a red light are unconstitutional because the “ ne is higher than that levied when a driver is ticketed by a red light camera. Its a weird twist in the ongoing battle of red-light cameras. EDUCATION COMMISH SEARCH More than two dozen people have applied for Floridas top education job but only a handful are likely to get greater scrutiny by the State Board of Education. The state has struggled over the last two months to “ nd quali“ ed applicants for the job and had to extend the deadline after the “ rst round didnt yield as many experienced candidates as the search “ rm wanted. In the “ rst round, 19 applied. The second time, two of the original 19 withdrew and nine more submitted applications. Among the newest applicants for the job are Gerard Robinson, the secretary of education for Virginia, Bret Schundler, who used to be the New Jersey education commissioner before being “ red by Gov. Chris Christie, and Florida trial attorney William W.C.Ž Gentry, who sits on the Duval County School Board. The search firm Ray and Associates was hired in April to recruit Floridas next education commissioner. Eric Smith, the current education commissioner, said he would resign effective June 10. In the meantime John Winn, a seasoned former education commissioner who held the job under Gov. Jeb Bush, is returning to Tallahassee as interim education commissioner. Winn resigned his post at the National Math and Science Initiative in Dallas. In one of his “ nal acts as commissioner, Smith gave tentative approval to a new formula used to evaluate some teachers that will eventually be used to determine their salaries. This new matrix includes test score data but also elements such as disability status, class size and attendance, which can impact a students performance. A statewide committee of teachers, parents and administrators spent months determining what, besides test scores, should be considered when determining a teachers effectiveness in the classroom. POLITICS Candidates for the U.S. Presidency are already racking up frequent ” yer miles to Florida. President Barack Obama will be in Miami on Monday afternoon for a fundraiser for the Obama Victory Fund 2012, the organization announced. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney will spend three days in the state next week. The former Massachusetts governor will be in Boca Raton for fundraisers on Tuesday evening followed by a full day of fundraising and events on Wednesday. He ends his swing with a series of private fundraisers with various fundraisers on Thursday. HAWKES (TEMPERATURE) RISE First District Court of Appeal Judge Paul Hawkes took a legal swing at his accusers this week, calling a Judicial Qualifications Commission report critical of his performance a legally shoddy hatchet job that should be dismissed. The motion, filed by attorney Kenneth Sukhia, also says Hawkes plans to ask that the special counsel charged with prosecuting the case be dismissed for omitting critical information from the charges “ led last month and for calling Hawkes one of former Gov. Jeb Bushs stooges.Ž Hawkes has been lampooned for his involvement in the First DCA building, dubbed the Taj MahalŽ for its opulent construction. The judge also faces allegations of destroying public records and behavior unbecoming to the bench. STORY OF THE WEEK: Florida, the lead litigant in a lawsuit filed by 26 states, took its “ ght against a federal health insurance mandate to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeal, a stop in a journey likely to end in the U.S. Supreme Court. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: With three jobs announcements in one week, Florida is clearly on the right path,Ž Gov. Rick Scott in a statement announcing the creation of 210 jobs in Florida.State “ ghts universal health care, while gov goes to Canada
