By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netLottie Stalnaker Roddenberry has lived through World War Is Armistice, the sinking of the Titanic, World War II, the Civil Rights Movement, the Race to Space, the internet boom and the last NASA shuttle launch. She was born on Aug. 11, 1911, and lived in the Tallahassee area until she was about 8 when her family moved to Sopchoppy, and she has been a resident of the community ever since. Roddenberry has many memories of Sopchoppy, from the downtown area near the drugstore that is now Backwoods Bistro where young people would gather to socialize, to the paving of Rose Street, to the train that used to run through Sopchoppy … as it passed her home, the conductor would toss out a piece of candy. Roddenberry also remembers wanting a pet turkey that another girl in Sopchoppy owned. She bought the turkey for a quarter, kept it until she got tired of it, and then raf” ed it off for $8. Roddenberry has fond memories of a pet calf named Lottie, as well. Roddenberry stayed with her grandmother a lot, and helped out by milking the cows. She chuckles while recalling how Lottie butted in while she was milking a cow one day, wanting some milk for herself. That was the cutest thing to me,Ž Roddenberry says, and laughs again. Roddenberrys younger days were not all fun and games. We were as poor as Jobs turkey,Ž she says. Being children of the Depression, and raised by an aging father, she and her siblings had to pull a lot of weight to support the family. One of the ways she supported the family was to go “ shing, walking as far as three miles with her sister Lilla Mary to reach Driggers Bluff on the Sopchoppy River. On one particular trip, they caught 54 “ sh. Despite having to work hard, Roddenberry attended school. She was one of only a small number of her peers to graduate high school, which she did in 1931. Roddenberrys school days were also occupied with basketball. She recalls taking a trip with the school basketball team to Tallahassee, stopping for food and discovering hot dogs. I had never known nothing about hot dogs,Ž Roddenberry says. After eating one, I thought they were the best things I had ever tasted.Ž Roddenberry also enjoyed going to dances that were held at school, a friends house or other locations in the area. I wasnt a good dancer,Ž Roddenberry says, but she liked to get out there and have fun with everyone else. These dances, which were just swing your partner stuff,Ž as she put it, were set to live “ ddle and piano music. Roddenberry has fond memories of when she and Ernest Roddenberry, whom she would marry, were courting. One time, Roddenberry jumped across a ditch, injured both her plant foot and her land foot and was in pain all night long. The next day though, Ernest totedŽ her to the doctor … carrying her so that she didnt have to walk. Roddenberry also remembers that Ernests dog, Jake, came with Ernest on visits to see her. Sometimes, though, Jake came without Ernest.Continued on Page 3 Summer Sunday Radio Program, Page 20 Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 116th Year, 28th Issue Thursday, July 14, 2011 O n e S e c t i o n One Section 7 5 C e n t s 75 CentsThe Wakullanews Inside This Week Public Notices ...............Page 3 Comment & Opinion .....Page 4 Church...........................Page 6 People...........................Page 7 School ...........................Page 8 Sports ...........................Page 9 Outdoors ....................Page 10 Water Ways...............Page 11 Sheriffs Report ...........Page 12 Green Scene ...............Page 13 Week in Wakulla .........Page 14 Classi eds ...................Page 17 Legal Notices ..............Page 18Life at 100State considers adding camping at Wakulla SpringsBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe idea to add camping at Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Parks has not received a favorable response from most people in the area. The current proposal is for a 60-acre family camping area located southwest of Cherokee Sink, adjacent to Hwy. 61, across from the former entrance to the park. Included at the site will be up to 120 camp sites to accommodate recreational vehicles, tents and pop-up campers, and connections to water, electric and sewer. There is also an equestrian camping area proposed, that would be adjacent to the new camping area, with a central stable and up to 12 sites for camping rigs and horse trailers. Wakulla Springs State Park is one of four parks being looked at as potential sites for camping. The others are Fanning Springs, DeLeon Springs and Honeymoon Island State Park. Currently, camping is offered at 53 out of 160 state parks. DEP identi“ ed 56 parks that will be looked at to possibly provide camping. It then decided to proceed with only these four parks for now and receive public feedback on the proposals. Sine Murray, planning manger for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, said the park service is seeing an increase in demand for family camping. The call center receives 60 calls a month asking about camping sites. Murray added that camping is integral to state parks and it was always likely that it would be added. Danny Jones, Northwest Florida Parks bureau chief, said, Camping will always be a core value at state parks.Ž After hearing such a large amount of opposition to adding camping at Honeymoon Island State Park, Gov. Rick Scott announced on July 8 that DEP would not be moving forward with that proposal. He also said the Florida Park Service would be re-evalutating how to move forward at the other three parks.

Capt. Megan Dillard, 31, of Tallahassee, was charged with 13 counts of of“ cial misconduct, Maj. Joseph Garrison, 39, of Crawfordville, was charged with one count of official misconduct and Corrections Of“ cer Andrew Gazapian, 23, of Tallahassee, was charged with one count of of“ cial misconduct, one count of fabricating evidence and one count of battery, according to FDLE. According to FDLE, they began an investigation on March 24 after several other employees brought the matter to the attention of the Department of Corrections Inspector Generals Of“ ce. I want to personally thank the Wakulla Correctional employees who brought this matter to the attention of the Department of Corrections Inspector Generals Of“ ce. Those of“ cers refused to allow bad behavior,Ž said Edwin Buss, secretary of the Florida DOC.

Days after BP sent a memo to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility saying the region has rebounded and many future payments should be suspended, U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson both said the company that says it is responsible for the Deepwater Horizon disaster needs to honor its promise to make the region whole following the worst oil spill in U.S. history. After paying more than $4.6 billion to private citizens and businesses since the April 20, 2010 spill, BP of“ cials have told federal overseers that the Gulf coast economy is mostly back on its feet. And thats what the claims were for … to help the region recover, the company says. Speaking to reporters in Pensacola following a public hearing nearly a year after the leaking well was capped, Rubio said hes concerned about the memo sent July 7 to the GCCF, especially because some effects of the spill may not be fully realized for several years. BP, from a corporate perspective, is trying to get out of here as quickly as they can,Ž Rubio said. They are trying to disengage from this process as soon as they can and I think it is incumbent on us policymakers to make sure that doesnt happen, and that BP ful“ lls its obligations to this region.Ž In a letter sent last week to the GCCF, which has been set up to reimburse people and businesses for spill-related costs, BP says claims for continuing damage should be limited to a small minority of applicants such as oyster harvesters whose businesses have yet to rebound. The company said that the big economic impact … the hit to the regions tourism industry … has passed, with visitors having returned.Continued on Page 2 FILE PHOTOBoom along the Wakulla coastline during last years BP oil spill.BP says that Gulf Coast has rebounded from the oil spill and doesnt need more payments … Florida says not so fast Alternative energy sources, Page 13 P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y Published Weekly, R e a d D a i l y Read Daily

Scott. These natural treasures belong to all the tax-paying citizens of this state and it would be unfair to proceed with a plan that so many Floridians are so adamantly opposed to.Ž He has also advised DEP to meet with local communities, citizen support organizations and other park stakeholders before proceeding with any proposed changes. According to Kristin Lock, DEP public information of“ cer, the state is currently not moving forward with any state park unit management plan amendments regarding family camping. Prior to the announcement, the DEP held a public workshop on July 5 to hear the publics feelings on the proposal at Wakulla Springs and about 100 people attended. The following morning, an advisory group meeting was held with DEP and Florida Park Service of“ cials to hear from several different groups, including the Friends of the Wakulla Springs, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Florida Trail Association, Audobon of Florida, Southern Trail Riders Association, Florida Association of RV Parks and Camps and others. Some of the major concerns expressed at both meetings were the large amount of campsites proposed, horses near the springs and how it might impact the water quality, location of the site and the increase in park capacity. There was also concern over the process being rushed and not enough data being collected to make such an important decision. Its not just a decision of can we do something, but should we?Ž said Julie Wraithmell, director of Wildlife Conservation for Audobon of Florida. She added that there was a distrust in the public because it hasnt been explained how these parks were chosen and when concerns arose, the process was changed. They feel like its a moving target,Ž Wraithmell said. Although there wasnt discussion about how Wakulla Springs State Park was selected, Murray said one of the reasons for the location of the camping site at the park was because of its proximity to Cherokee Sink, which would be opened up to swimming, to hopefully take pressure of Wakulla Springs during the busy months. Also, campers could walk across the street to the former park entrance. This would encourage people to move about the parks in a non-mobilized way,Ž Murray said. She added that the location on Hwy. 61 is near an existing sanitary sewer line and electrical line. Several expressed their concern over the proposed location. Chad Hanson, member of the Wakulla Watershed Coalition, said his concern was the placement, which is on top of the cave system. He added that the park previously expanded acquisitions to protect the watershed and water quality. Casey McKinlay, project director for the Woodville Karst Plain Project, said to develop this site is hypocritical when several years ago the state bought land so that Curtains Corner would not be developed to include camping, and also paid for legal fees. He said the issue then was because the state didnt want a campground above the cave system. Murray said there was more to it and one of the major issues was the owner wanted to add a gas station which would have required underground storage tanks. Along with the concern over the impact on the cave system, many people wondered what horse manure and urine might do to the springs. Friends of the Wakulla Springs President Ron Piasecki said he was told a horses urine is equivalent to eight people. Sue Noyes, of Southern Trail Riders Association, argued that a horses manure is made up of 75 percent water and mainly grass. Accept the fact that horses are vegetarians,Ž Noyes said. She added that their manure is biodegradable. Many at the meeting felt that studies should be done to determine the impacts a campground and equestrian camp site would have on the water quality of the spring that so many have fought to protect. Thats the most important aspect of this,Ž said Adam Warwick, with the FWC. Those at the meeting also said they felt the campsites should be lowered to 30, considering Wakulla Springs reaches park capacity during the summer months. Wakulla Springs Park Manager Brian Fugate said their capacity issue is in the parking area and doesnt happen most days during the year. The park reaches capacity 22 days out of the year, he said. There was also some discussion about how the state might fund the project. Park service of“ cials said funding is always an issue. So they would try and look at other funding agencies. There was also an idea of privatization. Jones said the company who receives the bid for the project would put in the infrastructure and build the facilities needed. Originally, the proposal was on the agenda for the Acquisition and Restoration Council meeting on August 19, where they would vote to approve, approve with changes or not approve. If approved, it would go to the Division of State Lands, but if there was a lot of heightened public concern, it would appear before the governor. Now, because of the change in direction by Scott, those items will not appear on the ARC agenda and instead the DEP will reevaluate how to proceed. Continued from Page 1 Multiple lines of evidence show that, to the extent certain portions of the Gulf economy were impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Gulf economy experienced a robust recovery in the fall of 2010, and that economic performance remains strong in 2011,Ž the company wrote. Under the direction of Ken Feinberg, the GCCF has distributed more than $4.6 billion. Overall, the facility has received more than 502,000 claims. It has also come under intense fire from many along the Gulf Coast, who say the process is slow and wrought with inconsistency. BP doesnt need to be protected from the citizenry,Ž U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., wrote Monday in a letter to Feinberg. Its the other way around.Ž On Monday, Rubio held a public hearing on behalf of the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, which is expected to craft federal legislation to divvy up “ nes expected to be paid by BP under the federal Clean Water Act. Any proposed legislation is still several weeks, possibly months, away, though, Rubio said. I would tell people to take a deep breath because everything in Washington moves very slow and I dont have any reason to believe that this wont be the case here as well,Ž Rubio said. During Mondays hearing, Rubio heard from local of“ cials and business leaders, many of whom are still waiting for payment from BP for damage following the spill, which was “ nally capped on July 15, 2010. John Dixon, a dive shop owner from Port St. Joe, is still awaiting payment for his lost business. He has since closed up shop. Dixon said he initially believed that BP would stand “ rm in its pledge to get it rightŽ in the Gulf, but his con“ dence was shaken with the July 7 memo. Last Thursday that progress was lost,Ž Dixon said. It looks like they are back to pro“ ts over the people, safety and the environment.Ž Rep. Doug Broxson, RGulf Breeze, whose district was among the most heavily affected by the spill, said months of frustration with BP and the GCCF have prompted him to ask federal of“ cials to “ nd another way to distribute the money remaining in the $20 billion BP recovery fund. With long delays and seemingly arbitrary and disparate outcomes, the GCCF has lost credibility and needs to be replaced, he said. There has got to be a better way,Ž Broxson said. Since the spill, the Panhandle tourism market has rebounded, thanks to good weather and marketing campaigns paid for, in part, by the company that have lured tourists back to the region. In its letter to GCCF, BP included several studies and newspaper accounts showing that tourists have returned. Such a rebound, the company claims, is evidence that the spill is no longer affecting the economy in many sectors. If true, its time to shut down the payments, it says. The current economic data do not suggest that individual and business claimants face a material risk of future loss caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill,Ž the company concludes. Florida Agriculture Commission Adam Putnam, who attended Mondays hearing held on the campus of Pensacola State College, said the company is getting ahead of itself. My feeling is that they still have a lot of claims in line before they start closing the purse,Ž Putnam said. Broxson said he was not surprised by BPs memo which he characterized as a well-timed step in BPs exit strategy. Im trying not to be cynical, but when you spend several millions hiring consultants, you probably have this planned out,Ž Broxson said. BP of“ cials couldnt immediately be reached for comment.State considers adding camping at Wakulla Springs Florida o cials: Dont let BP o the hook


Special to The NewsThe Florida Association of Counties presented Wakulla County Commissioner Lynn Artz with the Advanced County Commissioner designation following her completion of 27 hours of coursework developed by the association. Commissioner Artz received the designation along with 29 other county commissioners during an awards ceremony held at the FAC Annual Conference in Orange County. She is the second commissioner in Wakulla Countys history to achieve this advanced certi“ cation. Im proud to receive this designation,Ž said Commissioner Artz. The knowledge that Ive gained through this program will help me better serve the citizens of Wakulla County.Ž The Advanced County Commissioner education program is an advanced leadership program designed for graduates of the Certi“ ed County Commissioners (CCC) program. Commissioner Artz graduated from the CCC program in 2010. The ACC course content focuses on leadership with an overarching theme of growth and development in Florida. Seminars include Leadership Skills in Floridas Growth Environment, Strategic Visioning and Implementing that Vision, and Understanding and Working with Stakeholders in Floridas Growth Environment.

Commissioner Artz paid for her own transportation and lodging to attend three required seminars at the University of Florida. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 14, 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. Special to The NewsConcerned Citizens of Wakulla (CCOW) will host a forum on water protection at the public library on Thursday, July 21, at 7 p.m. The forum will include a discussion by Linda Young, director of the Clean Water Network of Florida, on the need for nutrient water quality criteria to protect Florida waters and springs. Young has been leading the “ ght to protect Floridas rivers, lakes, springs, wetlands and estuaries since 1994 with the Clean Water Network. The Clean Water Network of Florida is a coalition of more than 300 groups and many thousands of individuals that are committed to full implementation, enforcement and strengthening of the Clean Water Act and other safeguards for our water resources. There seems to be a lot of public interest these days in water,Ž announced Howard Kessler, CCOW chair. Our springs, rivers, wetland ordinance and waste treatment are all under pressure and are pretty hot topics these days, so we thought it would be a good idea to bring Linda Young, one of the most quali“ ed people in Florida on water issues, to speak to the issue,Ž Kessler said. Members of the public are encouraged and invited to attend and participate. Water is our oil, our blue gold, and we should nurture and protect it, not just pay lip service,Ž said Kessler, and Linda will be able to update the citizens on threats to this very precious resource and how to mobilize to protect it.Ž Victor W. Lambou, moderator of the discussion, added that the educational mission of CCOW is important. If more people knew about water quality issues we feel that Wakulla County could grow around a water model, where the availability of clean and abundant water would attract all kinds of visitors and new residents,Ž Lambou said. Youngs environmental work has been focused on helping citizens to participate in decision-making processes, strengthening Floridas water quality standards, and “ ghting for more stringent rules for large polluters such as paper mills, chemical plants, and sewage treatment plants,Ž Lambou said. In addition to her talk, Young will be available for questions after her presentation. Before her talk, CCOW will have light desserts and lots of cold, clean Wakulla water to enjoy.CCOW to host forum on water with Linda YoungContinued from Page 1Roddenberrys lifetime hobby is “ shing. In 1967, on a trip along the Paci“ c Coast, she went deep sea “ shing. I was just “ shing and I caught a salmon,Ž she says. That salmon weighed 6 pounds. In the 1980s, Roddenberry caught a blue bream while at the Ochlocknee River State Park, and she won the “ shing derby being held there. During World War II, Roddenberry was fishing when she saw two planes collide in the air. Both pilots escaped, and one parachuted down into the river. Roddenberry helped fish him out of the water, and the grateful pilot offered her the enormous parachute. She excitedly envisioned all the clothes that she could make out of the fabric, but unfortunately, military police repossessed the parachute from her. Roddenberrys family hasnt taken her “ shing recently, and when her daughter Linda Lumley asked if she got mad because they didnt, Roddenberry replied, I sure do.Ž Roddenberry says they dont take her because they know shell catch more “ sh. In 1973, she made a roadtrip up the Eastern seaboard with her son, David Roddenberry. We ate lobster … the “ rst lobster I ever had,Ž Roddenberry remembers. Oh, I loved it. I liked everything we had.Ž On the way to Israel in 1976, Roddenberry ” ew over Paris and Rome, and is very glad she saw the lights of those cities, a sight she had only imagined previously. Another memory Roddenberry has of that trip is riding a camel. I was glad to get off. I was kind of scared,Ž she says. Roddenberry also went to Costa Rica in 1990, where she spent her only Christmas away from home. Roddenberry also remembers helping two Vietnamese refugees, Nho and Phoungh, in the 80s. She bought the couple a house in Sopchoppy so that they would have a place to live and be allowed to emigrate to the U.S. It earned her a spot on the cover of The Wakulla News in February 1981. Even if she is not able to go “ shing, Roddenberry remains active. She enjoys gardening. She also likes to read, read, read,Ž she says, citing Gone with the WindŽ as her favorite book. A seafood lover, she frequents the Coastal Restaurant in Panacea. The owner has declared that Roddenberry will eat all future meals on the house when she reaches her 100th birthday. Roddenberry also attended this years Fourth of July celebrations in Sopchoppy. She and her sister, who still lives in Sopchoppy, watched the parade and then made their way to Myron B. Hodge City Park. Besides her sister, Roddenberrys living family includes her three children, Robert H. Roddenberry, Linda Lumley and David Roddenberry; her grandchildren, Cindy White, Bobby Roddenberry and Catherine Strutz, as well as her great-grandchildren, Kayla White, Leah White, Jackson White, Justin Roddenberry, Jared Roddenberry, Jake Roddenberry and Jordan Roddenberry. Roddenberry gave the Lord all the credit for her longevity, saying that she had asked him to help her live to be 100. If I could be of help to anybody...I wanted to live long enough to do it.Ž Roddenberry is very excited about turning 100. Yeah, I am, I really have to admit I am. Its remarkable.Ž Her children will host a celebration on Aug. 12 at the Sopchoppy United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. They invite all friends and relatives to join them between 6 and 8 p.m. Continued from Page 1 The incident started with a male inmate making a remark to Dillard who then allegedly falsi“ ed 13 disciplinary reports against 13 inmates, which resulted in privileges being lost and a transfer to con“ nement. During the transfer, Gazapian allegedly battered one of the inmates, forcing him to the ground and using a chemical spray on him. Gazapian then falsi“ ed a report saying that the inmate had bitten him. The investigation revealed that in fact Gazapian had bitten himself, according to FDLE. After the inmate was transferred to his con“ nement cell, he was again sprayed with the chemical spray because he was causing a disturbance. However, according to FDLE, there was no disturbance and a report had been falsi“ ed at the direction of Garrison. Both Garrison and Dillard were arrested on July 7 and taken to Wakulla County Jail. Gazapian was out of state at the time, but was told to turn himself in once he returns, FDLE said. All three have been removed from the Wakulla Correctional Institution and are being terminated, according to Gretl Plessinger, of the DOC Of“ ce of Public Affairs. I have no tolerance for the kind of behavior they are accused of,Ž Buss said. Dillard had been with WCI since 1998 when she started as a clerk typist. She was promoted to captain in 2008. Gazapian started at the institution in 2008 and Garrison started in 1995 as a corrections officer and worked his way up to major in 2009, Plessinger said.

The final mission for the space shuttle program launched on Friday at 11:29 a.m., three minutes after it was scheduled. Originally, the weather looked like it may have delayed the launch for several days, but the rain stayed away and the 750,000 spectators watched as the Atlantis left for the 135th mission of the shuttle program. I took a spot in front of the TV at the paper and watched with some sadness as the last space shuttle took off from the launch pad. It was visible for less than a minute, before disappearing into the clouds. The shuttle took four astronauts to the International Space Station, as well as supplies that are expected to last through the next year. Only four astronauts were taken on this mission, which is smaller than the normal shuttle crew. This is because normally a backup shuttle is ready in case of an emergency and a rescue is needed. However, there isnt a shuttle available now, with the Endeavor and Discovery already retired. So the astronauts would have to rely on other means of getting home, which would be in smaller vessels that would take several trips to get all the astronauts back to Earth. This launch marked the end of the 30-year shuttle program. The program started in 1981 with the “ rst space” ight mission of the shuttle Columbia. The Columbia ” ew the “ rst “ ve missions of the program. In 2003, America watched with great sadness as Columbia was lost, along with its passengers in 2003. The Enterprise was actually the “ rst shuttle built, but it only flew within the Earths atmosphere in 1977. Following Columbia came the Challenger. The shuttle was also eventually lost, along with its crew, in 1986. The shuttle Discovery was built in 1984 and Atlantis was built in 1985. The shuttle Endeavor was built in 1992 to replace the Challenger. At the time of the Challenger, the cost of a shuttle was $1.7 billion. The cost to launch a shuttle is $450 million, according to NASAs website. According to NASA, the space shuttle is the fastest winged vehicle ever to ” y, with an orbital velocity 10 times the speed of a highpowered ri” e bullet. It is the only winged vehicle to reach orbit, and the only reusable space launch and landing vehicle system designed for repeated reuse. I have grown up with shuttle launches. I remember visiting the Kennedy Space Center and watching shuttle launches on TV. I remember being amazed at what they could do and that they were able to take people way beyond the clouds, all the way into space. It was such an incredible sight. Unfortunately, I never saw a launch live, in person, and now never will. The shuttle program has ended and currently, we do not have a way to transport astronauts into space on our own. In order to get to the space station, we will have to buy a seat on a Russian Soyuz capsule … the cost of which is $50 million per seat. U.S. companies are currently developing smaller spaceships to eventually transport supplies and astronauts to the space station, but it is estimated to be three to “ ve years away. The end of the shuttle program was announced by former President George W. Bush, who also said he wanted to focus on moon exploration. Obama continued with Bushs plan to end the shuttle program, but decided to shift focus on sending people to asteroids and Mars. He has said we will reach an asteroid by 2025 and Mars by 2030. I hope we do. Current NASA Administrator, Charles Bolden, said on July 1 that the space shuttle program was expensive to maintain and had served its purpose. The plan now, he said, is to focus on the transportation systems that will carry us beyond where we have been, to new destinations and new milestones in the annals of human history.Ž My generation touched the moon. Together with those that followed, we built the ISS (International Space Station). Today, NASA … and the nation … wants to touch an asteroid and eventually send humans to Mars. NASA is moving forward and making change, because the status quo is no longer acceptable. We need future generations to be able to do more than we can today,Ž he said. The future for the program is deep space exploration. NASA will pursue two key components, a deep space crew vehicle and an evolvable heavy-lift rocket. According to NASAs website, they are designing and building the capabilities to send humans to explore the solar system, working toward a goal of landing humans on Mars. They will also build the Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, based on the design for the Orion capsule, with a capacity to take four astronauts on 21-day missions. As a former astronaut and the current NASA Administrator, Im here to tell you that American leadership in space will continue for at least the next half-century because we have laid the foundation for success … and for NASA failure is not an option,Ž he said. I hope hes right. I hope our plans for further space exploration come to fruition and I hope Im around to see it.Jennifer Jensen is a reporter at The Wakulla News.

Yet recently he trashed one of the most scenic views along the road way between Panacea and the bridge with its wetlands and coastal forests, making a mockery of the Florida Scenic Byways program. Wakulla Countys wetlands ordinance has a very big hole in it. It allows cutting down into the marshes with its agriculture and forestry exemption, which allows cutting down to the waters edge. But even then, forestry regulations calls for best management practicesŽ which leaves a buffer at the waters edge. Mr. Dickson left no buffer, he took every tree on his property, large and small and wrecked the land, both aesthetically and biologically. His deforestation will have destructive impacts on our seafood, bird watching, ecotourism and seafood for decades to come. With restaurants and businesses closed, and the seafood industry on the rocks, it amazes me that our commissioners dont seem to understand that were ” ushing our greatest assets down the toilet. As the bumper stickers say, No Wetlands, No Seafood.Ž Panacea is a seafood dependent economy whether its recreational or commercial “ shing. The fallen leaves of the trees nourish the plankton that feeds our estuaries. They make larval “ sh, shrimp and crabs grow and purify our waters. However several of our county commissioners are trying to gut Wakulla Countys wetland ordinance that so many citizens worked hard to enact. They claim the state has the responsibility to protect isolated wetlands, and the county shouldnt be involved. This is a big mistake. If we want to preserve our birds, “ sh and wildlife, we cannot rely on the weakened and gutted Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Northwest Florida Water Management District to protect our coast for us. Right now theyre running for cover, and the most important thing they can do is protect their jobs. No one is going to protect wetland trees if we dont. On April 12, 2005, the Panacea Waterfronts committee sent a letter to the Wakulla County Commission in support of the tree ordinance that included: Trees are a public resource. While trees are private property, removing them and clearing land may impact the property value of adjacent land owners and the quality of life of citizens within the community, for the above stated reasons. Therefore, because they are part of the publics healthy, safety and welfare, they should be protected by government. Recognizing the need to protect property owners rights, as well as protecting the environment, Waterfronts Florida urges you to proceed on this matter in a most expeditious manner.Ž The above letter was drafted and approved by the Panacea Waterfronts Committee, with only one dissenting vote: Walt Dickson, the current president of that organization. Tell commissioners to support our wetlands ordinance and the setbacks, or all our land will end up looking as trashed as Walt Dicksons land on Highway 98 in Panacea. Jack Rudloe Panacea Editor, The News:To the citizens of Wakulla County: I would like to thank Jerry Moore for voting against raising taxes on the good people of Wakulla in these dif“ cult times, I personally dont know any one who doesnt use all the services you raised taxes on. Alan Brock voted to raise our taxes, and went to Washington to have his picture taken with Obama. Mr. Brock please tell me why we spent all those trillions of dollars for shovel ready projects, why we need to raise taxes for bridges and roads? Was your trip on Wakulla countys expense? I would like to thank the commissioners who voted to hire David Edwards. I have worked with David for a good while and know him to be a honest, hard working, just all around good person of impeccable integrity. To the people of the hands across sands group, I would like to ask how many of you drove to your event in cars, and have any of you ever asked yourself why our “ ne young women and men are dying in distant lands?Russell A. Smith Crawfordville ank you for voting against raising taxes Limerock isnt helping in Wakulla GardensEditor, The News: As you recall, it has been a good seven months since the county put the limerock on the roads in the Wakulla Gardens. As for the dust, they have done nothing to help us. I got a call from the county road and bridge department saying that they thought if they get the sheriffs of“ ce to enforce the 25 mile an hour speed limit, it will “ x something, (LOL) And just how is this going to help the dust? You can drive 10 or 15 and still there is so much dust! The county should have studied the fact that D.O.T. had already put the limerock down to start with, for there are already reports and studies on limerock dust. I talked with someone with the sheriffs of“ ce and they didnt see how this will help. I bet if we withheld taxes from Wakulla Gardens to the county they would remember where we are in the county! The county is saying that for every complaint they gett, they get three saying they love the limerock, so I guess we need to call the countys road and bridge and make our voices heard, for they are saying no one is complaining! Thank you, A TAXPAYER OF WAKULLA GARDENS! Connie Savage CrawfordvilleCongratulations to Maurice LangstonEditor, The News:Congratulations, Major Maurice Langston! As a graduate of the 103 Session (1975) of the FBI National Academy, I salute you for achieving the most outstanding professional accomplishment attainable by a law enforcement administrator. The process of being nominated, accepted and graduating from the worlds most prestigious law enforcement institution is a task of monumental proportions that places you in the top one percent of our nations law enforcement professionals. You are to be honored and applauded as you return to our county with a wealth of knowledge, understanding and world wide professional contacts that will serve you and the citizens of Wakulla County for many, many years. Your brother in law enforcement, Major Alan Lamarche 103 Session FBINA RetiredHow to land the worlds best jobEditor, The News:With so many folk out of work these days, I thought Id pass along steps to make fast cash for you and your friends! 1. Find a rural county with a bed tax where the majority of commissioners are oblivious to accountability. 2. Negotiate a part-time contract with the commissioners as a quasi-county employee with outstanding bene“ ts and no required work hours. 3. Hire friends to create a tourism website for you. Spend plenty making the website go viral. Going viral is not a spontaneous phenomenon based on extremely unique and exceptional content, but rather accomplished by spending much money with a friends marketing company for a viral campaign.Ž Doesnt go viral? Dont worry, no one notices. Make eight promotional videos, not one. No money for airtime, but youve elated video production friends. No worries about visitors overrunning the county. 4. Get grants! Youre getting freeŽ money for the county, you can do nothing wrong or unethical. Say youre spending more hoursŽ on grants and commissioners will raise your pay. When this takes hold in Constitutional Of“ ces, employees collecting fees, “ nes, taxes, etc., will get huge raises … they bring in money too. Those not bringing in money get no pay. 5. Administer and implement grants yourself, charging BIG bucks without competition or accountability. Commissioners will again raise your pay. 6. Most bed tax money has been going to you and your friends, now double the bed tax. Visitors to the County dont care about lodging costs with the robust economy.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 14, 2011 – Page 5ABy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 8 … The Space Shuttle Atlantis lifted off Friday from the Kennedy Space Center taking with it a piece of history, not to mention an economic engine that will be hard to replace. After three decades, the program is folding up, leaving thousands of highly paid, highly educated workers wondering where they go from here. The shuttles farewell launch capped off a shortened and largely uneventful week kicked off by the nations birthday, which prompted many to take leave of the capital city. Instead, national news took precedence this week. Days before Atlantis thundered toward the stars, the Casey Anthony murder trial blotted out the sun as the nations media microscope turned its gaze on the 25-year-old Orlando mother acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter in a case that boosted cable ratings and set off a ” urry of legislative efforts from state lawmakers appalled by the verdict. Legislators responded as their predecessors have in the face of similar high pro“ le cases that outraged the public: by saying there oughta be a law.Ž In other news, the Florida Supreme Court weighed in on a pair of cases pitting business interests against consumers as opinions dealing with asbestos and malpractice were decided by the high court. Meanwhile, the state is gearing up for yet another environmental “ ght as it prepares to battle the feds over air quality standards that some say could harm the states utility industry. Finally, BP has told federal of“ cials overseeing Gulf repayment that the regions economy has shown enough signs of recovery that the companys liability should be limited going forward. ATLANTIS MAKES HISTORY The shuttle program, indelibly linked to the state … its even on Floridas commemorative quarter „ will soon be talked about in past tense. Atlantis 12-day mission, the last to be ” own over a 30-year span, will mark the end of the longest running manned space effort. The program, which put the Hubble telescope up and linked Earth to the International Space Station, also brought the country and manned space ” ight to its knees with two of the most watched tragedies since man ventured into space more than four decades ago with the disasters that destroyed the Challenger in 1986 and Columbia in 2003. But aside from its role in the nations history and scientific endeavors, the shuttle program was a large employer and a key economic driver in the Space Coast. Its end leaves the area wondering whats to come, how the roughly 9,000 jobs lost will be replaced and those thousands of engineers and others trying to decide whether to seek similar work elsewhere or wait for a new job in Brevard County. Gov. Rick Scott tempered sadness with optimism for a rebound thats becoming a trademark. This is a historic time, and its sad to see the program end,Ž Scott said in his weekly radio address. However, I am optimistic that we can attract high-tech aviation and aerospace jobs to the Space Coast because of our highly skilled workforce.Ž CAYLEES DEATH LEADS TO NEW BILLS The seven-week trial of Orlando resident Casey Anthony led the news this week as a jury Tuesday found her not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, a controversial verdict that set off a national debate. By Thursday, two Florida lawmakers had quickly “ led a bill called Caylees LawŽ to upgrade from a misdemeanor to a felony a failure to report a missing child and shortening the time to report a childs death. The bill (HB 37), sponsored by Rep. Jose Felix Diaz, R-Miami, and Rep. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, came a day after a different lawmaker, Rep. Bill Hager, R-Boca Raton, had issued a press release saying he plans to “ le his own bill called Caylees Law. All would boost penalties. On Friday they were joined by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, who also said she wanted to do the same and planned to “ le the bill there. Two-year-old Caylee was reported missing in July 2008 and her body was found in December. Anthony did not report her daughter missing for 31 days, one of the suspicious pieces of evidence used against her. She was sentenced to four years for lying to police, but will be released Wednesday because of good behavior. Plakon, said he joined forces with Diaz after receiving numerous emails from constituents pleading with him to change state law. For her to be able to go out and party for 31 days and mislead law enforcement, that seems wrong,Ž Plakon said. This bill says it should be illegal for a caretaker to do such a thing.Ž Over in the Senate, Sen. Greg Evers, R-Bakers, is asking that the Senate Criminal Justice Committee take up the issue in September to determine if additional laws are needed to close loopholes in state law dealing with missing children. It is not unusual for well-publicized child deaths to spark legislative reforms. In 2005, Florida also attracted national attention over the kidnapping and disappearance of 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford. In response to Lunsfords death, the Florida Legislature passed a bill in 2005 that required more stringent tracking of sex offenders. AIR QUALITY FIGHT LOOMS, WATER WARS CONTINUE Pointing to potentially higher electric rates, the Florida Public Service Commission is expected this month to raise concerns with the federal government about new air-pollution standards. Utilities such as Florida Power & Light and Progress Energy Florida and the states municipal electric industry also are wary of the proposed standards, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is expected to “ nalize in November. The proposed standards, released in March, target coaland oil-fired power plants and are designed to curb emissions of mercury and other pollutants that cause human health problems. Public Service Commission members last week reviewed drafts of documents that the agency will send to the EPA and members of Congress. The documents cited utility estimates that complying with the standards could cost hundreds of millions of dollars … a cost that would be passed onto utility customers. SCOTTS NET WORTH DOWN Florida Gov. Rick Scott saw his net income plummet in 2010 from the year before, but the Naples business executive still showed a net worth of $102 million, according to “ nancial disclosure forms “ led with the state made public this week. Despite the lower net worth, Scotts net income rose 46 percent to $11.5 million. Its almost all investment income; as governor, Scott makes 1 cent a year. STORY OF THE WEEK: Shuttle Atlantis roars into space, a swan song for the shuttle program, and a scary opening of a new chapter for the Space Coast. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Today really sucked. For the “ rst time after the launch, after that initial wave of patriotism, came a wave of absolute sadness.Ž State Rep. Ritch Workman, RMelbourne, who represents the Space Coast.WEEKLY ROUND UP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Shuttle blasts o into history IMAGINE IMAGINEOur school uses a delivery model for actively engaging hands-on learning.

There is a blessing just waiting for you … And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered...Ž Joel 2:32 (King James).Friendship P.B. to host revivalBy PAM ALBRITTONBig Bend Hospice I awoke this morning with the song Prop me up beside the jukebox when I dieŽ playing in my head. And, of course, my thoughts turned to Joe and Regina Blanchard. We attended Joes Celebration of Life on Saturday and what a celebration it was! Joe left us a beautiful gift and Regina carried out his wishes with all the love she had. As we turned down the dirt road to their home, the American ” ag hung from a hook and ladder “ re truck, it was a humbling site. Their yard was “ lling with family and friends and we could hear the band playing. We were greeted with smiles and hugs from the many people we know. It was comforting to know that our small community had again come together for one of our own. This truly was a celebration of Joes life. The collage of pictures scrolling across the TVs and the many posted outside reminded me of the short time I got to spend with Joe when he served as our countys interim administrator and of the times my son, Kyle, spent working with him on various projects at his home. When Joe made the decision to come into hospice, he called me and said, Okay, Pam, Im ready.Ž The nurse and I made the initial visit and sat with Joe for a long time, listening to his stories and laughing together. He told me he was preparing his obituary and I offered the services of our Life Review volunteer, Linda Shelton. Joe and Linda met several times and what he created and she helped bring to fruition was a life story/ obituary like no other. I called Regina recently to share this article with her and make sure she was okay. She asked the following be included: I would like to thank The Wakulla News for coming out to our home and being so patient in taking the picture of Joes pheasant above the “ replace. Mike (Joes brother) flew here from Wisconsin and drove Joe out to South Dakota to meet up with their brother, Tom, last October. I told Joe of all the birds he liked to hunt, we did not have a pheasant on the wall. I also told him not to “ ll it full of shotgun holes so we could have it mounted. Instead, Joe brought back this piece of art work (there were only three produced). They are all made of real pheasants and with one large pheasant in the middle. A special thank you to Donnie Crum and Scott Nelson for taking Joe on his last white tail deer hunting trip in January. Joe always looked forward to his hunting trips. I would like to thank Jill Walker for coming out to our home and talking to me for hours. I had to literally make her go home to feed her family. She was kind and told me they could eat ice cream, that they wouldnt starve. I want to thank Donnie Crum, Cleve Fleming, Joel Casto, Cheryll Olah and Arlene Petrandis for being extremely supportive to both Joe and me. To Heidi Franklin, our Big Bend Hospice nurse, thank you for coming out so early on the day he passed away. Thank you to Don and Irv for preparing so much food for the family. To my clients for being so patient and understanding during my absence from work, I will be back as soon as I am stronger. And, “ nally to the people of Wakulla County, thank you for your kindness and support. Joe and I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you.Ž -Regina I believe we should all celebrate our lives and those we love and those who love us everyday. I believe we should forgive ourselves more often and forgive those who have offended us. Life goes by so very fast. Hug your children; let your family and friends know how much they mean to you. And celebrate life each and every day.Joe Blanchards Celebration of Life was that … a celebration of his life

By LILLY ROCKWELL THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 23 … For the third year in a row, undergraduate students at Florida universities will pay 15 percent more in tuition. The governing board for the State University System approved a 7-percent increase in tuition. Thats on top of an 8-percent tuition increase approved by the Legislature earlier. All of the Board of Governors voted for the increase, except Michael Long, the student representative from New College, who chose to vote against the increase for Florida Gulf Coast University and University of North Florida. Long said he was re” ecting earlier votes by student body presidents at those schools. The tuition increases come at a time when “ nancial aid programs, such as the popular Bright Futures scholarship, are being cut, leaving students with bigger tuition bills. Some Board of Governors members are beginning to examine how tuition increases are impacting middle class students who arent eligible for needbased aid. Universities argue that Florida students pay far less than students in other states for tuition. Florida ranks 48 in the cost of tuition and fees compared to other states, according to the College Board. Fifteen percent is the maximum amount universities are allowed to increase tuition in a given year under state law. University presidents spent most of Wednesday pleading their case for tuition increases to the Board of Governors. Some of Floridas biggest universities … such as Florida State and the University of Florida … are fearful of losing prominent faculty and increasing class sizes because it could hurt their effort to climb in national rankings. Some university of“ cials are pushing for increases of more than 15 percent, such as University of Florida President Bernie Machen. There may be no end in sight for tuition increases in Florida. Universities disclosed to the governing board this week that without signi“ cant improvement in the economy, 15 percent tuition hikes will continue to be necessary every year. Data presented to the Board on Thursday showed it would take at least 10 years to reach the national average assuming universities asked for 15 percent tuition increases each year, and assuming the national average of tuition and fees rose at 7 percent each year, which is the same percentage as the last five years. It creates a bit of a challenge to catch up to the national average,Ž Perez said. But he added that meeting the average is not the goalŽ and is simply a measuring device.Ž -ENDPage 8A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 14, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comeducation newsSchoolSchools across the state are having to make tough budget cuts By LILLY ROCKWELLTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 7 … A “ rst-year teacher from Broward County is likely out of a job. But if that same teacher worked in Hillsborough County, his or her job would be safe. The dust is starting to settle after months of lengthy public hearings, brutal negotiations and hand-wringing over the budgets of Floridas 67 school districts. But the effect of this years budget shortfalls is felt differently across the state, with some districts cutting hundreds of teachers off their payroll and others only making minor adjustments. Most school district boards start their budget writing process in April and “ nish by September. Due to the loss of federal stimulus dollars and a signi“ cant drop in funding from the state, districts statewide are grappling with budget shortfalls that range from a few million to upwards of $170 million. The Legislature cut over $1 billion from education in this years budget, amounting to a drop of almost 8 percent, which amounts to $542 per student. Its a bigger cut coming on top of three or four more years of cuts and its obviously having a huge impact,Ž said Florida Education Association spokesman Mark Pudlow. Its making it more dif“ cult for our schools to serve our students and serve them well.Ž Pudlow said teachers are in the budget-cutting bullseye this year, and that the cuts to school funding this year are by far the biggestŽ in decades. But Republican budget writers defended cutting the education budget as a necessary sacri“ ce with a tough economy and declining tax revenues. No part of the budget was left unscathed and education was shielded from the worst cuts, say lawmakers who helped craft the education budget. Still, districts were left with a buffet of unappetizing budget cutting choices, such as furloughs, layoffs and cuts to popular after-school programs, transportation and school safety of“ cers. The result: In Broward County, over 1,400 teachers are without a job. In Duval County, some sports programs are being eliminated, 87 teachers are being laid off, and bus service is curtailed. In Miami Dade County, the salaries of 400 top administrators, principals and assistant principals will be slashed. And in Marion County, the next academic year may bring with it longer school days and a four-day work week. But other districts, such as Orange County, were able to escape large budget shortfalls. Thats because Orange County passed a local property tax to bolster school funding. Hillsborough, where Tampa is located, was also able to whittle away at a $100 million budget shortfall without slashing jobs, the St. Petersburg Times reported. Factors that impact how much a school has to cut include whether or not the district saved any federal stimulus dollars, whether their enrollment numbers are rising or falling, and how much property taxes have declined. Schools received about $1.2 billion in federal stimulus dollars. But districts received con” icting messages on whether to spend or save the money. Those that chose to save saw gentler budget shortfalls this year. Those that spent … such as Broward County … suffered larger budget cuts. The size of the shortfall varies with each district. Broward was one of the hardest hit school districts. The school had to lay off 1,400 teachers and nearly 600 district employees that included administrators, maintenance and clerical staff. The district is also considering furloughs, con“ rmed a district spokesman, but no decision has been made as to how many furlough days will be required. Many of the laid-off Broward teachers were hired in the last two years with onetime funds provided through federal stimulus dollars. In Marion County, perhaps one of the most controversial school budget cuts was the decision to move toward a four-day week in 2012. Initially the school board was considering a four-day week starting in 2011. Spokesman Kevin Christian said the district has cut $51 million from its budget since 2007. This year, the district has to cut $24 million and has instituted hiring and spending freezes, is slashing department budgets and is considering cutting out substitute teachers, which would save the district $2 million annually. Its not going to get any easier,Ž Christian said. Quite honestly, next year I would be surprised if we did not do the four day week.Ž That decision is unpopular with some parents because it requires additional daycare. Schools say they have been battered by years of dif“ cult budget cuts and expect more next year. Already, Christian said Marion County is bracing for a cut of another $8 million.Tuition to increase 15 percent at Florida universities TuAmigoYourFriendWillHelpYou Accident?

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 14, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWell, it was another good scalloping weekend. I talked to many folks who got their limit, or as many as they wanted to clean, down east of the lighthouse. I talked to a friend who went to Steinhatchee who said they got their limit down there in a matter of an hour. I also heard that St. Joe Bay is loaded and you can park off the road near Presnells and walk out and get scallops or better yet, take a kayak or canoe. Lots of trout are being caught over around Lanark Village on the ” ats and out on the Dog Island Reef. Top water will work early and late and then go to a Gulp under a cork or straight jig. Plenty of reds are still around the docks and Lanark Reef. There are also lots of blues and lady“ sh around if you just want to have your string stretched. Im not much on eating “ shy-tasting “ sh and blues are one of those. But smoked they are good and they make a real good “ sh dip. I havent heard anything about the Econ“ na and Aucilla though I believe the “ sh down there are still in that deeper water. Some reds are being caught in the creeks. Capt. David Fife out of Spring Creek said reds are starting to show up in better numbers around the bars in Oyster Bay and around Piney Island. In the past August starts getting very good for reds. I saw Capt. Luke Frazier over at Crums in Panacea when I was gassing up with non-ethanol gas and he had his family down from Missouri. His nephew wanted to catch a shark so they went over to Mud Cove and his wish came true. First thing he did was take a picture on his phone and send to his schoolmates. He said they dont catch too many sharks in Missouri. Keaton Beach is loaded with scallops and some nice trout are still being caught ” oating live pin“ sh under a Cajun Thunder in about 4 to 6 feet of water. I just talked to Capt. Randy Peart and he said he “ nally got a day off. He “ shes this time of year over at St. George and he said “ shing is great for both speckled trout and silver trout. He uses a white Gulp under a Cajun Thunder. Theyre catching reds early in the morning using a gold BadonkA-Donk and when the sun gets up they are turning to a copper twitchin rap by Rapala. Randy said there arent a lot of Spanish around but the ones that are around are three to six pounds. He uses 60-pound leader when he knows they are around and he said the other day they hooked one that he estimated to weigh about 8 pounds. He bit through the 60-pound leader like it was 10pound. The west pass is covered up with sharks and he has been doing quite a few shark trips. Most of them are blacktips and they can be real exciting when they jump. Hes still seeing plenty of tarpon and said a friend of his said Lanark is covered up with tarpon and said there are probably more there than he has ever seen. A friend of mine was over at Mud Cove on Saturday and they caught a bunch of blacktip sharks but saw a lot of tarpon jumping through bait. I took four people out from the Woods party from Covington, Ga., last Thursday and we went out to the Rotary Reef. I didnt really know what to expect but it turned out great. Using tiger minnows and the Gulp we caught 17 ” ounder, the most I have ever caught on a charter, eight nice trout, “ ve blues, numerous lady“ sh and I lost count of the small black sea bass. We were “ shing in about 18 feet of water, right on the bottom. Dont forget the seventh Annual Youth Fishing Tournament at C-Quarters Marina in Carrabelle. This is for kids younger than 16. The eighth Annual King“ sh Shootout is Aug. 6 and 7, with all proceeds going to The Leukemia Research Foundation. Scallops are plentiful, fishing is good for as hot as it is, and were “ nally getting that rain we needed. Fortunately, the amount we are getting shouldnt affect the scalloping in our area. Remember to take plenty of water out there and wear a hat and sunscreen. Know your limits and leave that ” oat plan. Good luck and good “ shing! From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Lots of “ sh being caught … and scallops The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has rescheduled a workshop in Wakulla County to present information on the management plan and permitting guidelines for gopher tortoises. Originally set for July 8, the workshop now will take place on Monday, July 18, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the extension of“ ce in Crawfordville.

We have needed rain for such a long time and we have all prayed for, and it “ nally came Saturday with a vengeance. I was out of town for work, but Duane was home with the girls. They were out and about when the storm hit, and came home to “ nd a big surprise. We have a great big oak in our side yard, over 75 feet tall. When Duane and the girls arrived home, they found it had been struck by lightning. Thankfully, it was still standing, but the strike had thrown bark off the tree all the way across the yard, over the roof and into the far back corner of the back yard. There was dirt blown out of the ground and roots were exposed. The power of the storm was truly awesome! Our neighbor said it shook her whole house. As I write this, we are still without internet and phone serviceƒ Thankfully, there is modern technology and I have been able to use my cell phone to get the happenings of the weekend from Flotilla 12 to share with you. Despite the weather, members of Flotilla 12 gathered at Shell Point in the clubhouse to have a fellowship cookout with the crew of the Seahawk. The crew of the Seahawk is overseen by BM1 Hank Dietrich. Hank and his family came along with several other crew and families. Twenty-four auxiliarists also came with family. While there is a screened porch to keep the bugs away, the heat and humidity made the pool look really inviting, but the thunder and rain kept most out. By the end of the afternoon, everyone was full of burgers and dogs, side dishes galore, and delicious desserts. Thank you to everyone who took time to join in this fellowship and who brought food to share. We hope this is the “ rst of many events together and the beginning of a great working relationship. Sunday, Coxswain Bob Asztalos went out with David Guttman, Norma Hill and trainee Robert Fernandez. There were hundreds of boats out and about, but thankfully none of them needed assistance. Bob did not waste any opportunity for training and had the crew and trainee work on several skills. All in all, a good day. As the saying goes, any day on the water beats a day on land! As Sherrie reminds us, Safe Boating is No Accident. PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSFlotilla Commander Bob Asztalos welcomes everyone to the social in Shell Point. The group enjoying fellowship and food on the screened-in porch at the clubhouse. Mark Rocha, Chuck Hickman, David Rabon and Leon Weisner at the social.Folks diving in a cave must always know the way out. We have previously discussed the thin white line cave divers lay behind them as a map to safely exit the cave. Along the way, these lines, when left in the cave, become permanent lines complete with markers for personal identi“ cation, alternate passages (called jumps), distance markers and line arrows pointing to the closest way to the surface. Early white cave line had these markers made of wood, duct tape and clothespins. Today they are mostly plastic. In the early 1990s as more people repeatedly dove the same cave, these fragile white lines were replaced with a much larger, more durable and colorful (orange) polypropylene line named the Gold Line. Today, Cave Safety Of“ cers assigned by the National Speleological Society Cave Diving Unit and the National Association for Cave Diving, coordinate Line and Safety Committees around Florida to replace white line with gold, place safety labels and generally improve the safety of our caves (build steps, work with land owners and federal, state and local of“ cials). These respected organizations provide gold line funded by their membership dues. I was once called to a meeting at the Tallahassee Sewer Service regarding a disconcerting report of high nitrates in Wakulla Springs. Cave divers had been asked to collect water in Wakulla Springs using milk jugs. The tested water was found to have high nitrates, and the Tallahassee sewer was blamed. While much later they became a demonstrated contributor to the problems at Wakulla Springs, at the time I suspected another contributor to the nitri“ ed water: the diver. I asked if we could sample the water by non-diver means, perhaps a tube that the scientist could pull water from the surface any time they wanted a sample. With the cooperation of the North Florida Water Management District, I procured long lengths of water sampling tubing left over from well studies and set to work. I began in Wakulla Springs. I ran the tube from the well house down to the vent at 185 feet where later we would anchor a current meter, still there today. A pump pulled water, untouched by human hands, to the surface collection vials. With my improved collection procedure established, I went on to place more tubes in Little Dismal, Sally Ward, Emerald Sink and others along the conduit feeding Wakulla Springs. I am pleased to say they are still in place today, some even extended. You see I attached the tubes to the safety line thus minimizing any further entangling possibility. What future history will we write about the cave line? Well, heres a tip: Your Wakulla County Dive Club will be producing a new Cave Line information device. At the entrance of every sponsored cave you currently will “ nd an NACD or NSS-CDS placard advising you to not go farther unless you are cave trained. A large line marker will soon be deployed as the line drops below at 130 feet alerting the diver that TRIMIX is Recommended Beyond this Point.Ž Trimix, recall, is the helium breathing gas available to those recreationally certi“ ed on that gas, that reduces narcosis. And narcosis has been the problem with many of the Wakulla County caves. Folks swimming our deeper caves will not miss this notice as it is attached to the very line every cave divers follows.

The move to have a standard set of procedures for police lineups follows a recent report by the states Innocence Commission, calling for such uniformity. Lineups are equally critical in clearing the innocent and identifying the guilty,Ž said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey, who serves on the Florida Innocence Commission. These contemporary standards create strong protocols and high levels of accountability for Florida law enforcement. Our criminal investigations will be improved.Ž The standards were developed by FDLE, the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida Police Chiefs Association and the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association. The proposal calls for standard instructions for photo or live lineups, including telling the witness that the perpetrator of the crime may not be in the lineup, and that they dont have to pick anyone.

Green SceneEARTH TALK.... Page 15A HEALTH & FITNESS.... Page 16A By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe countys Energy Conservation Committee held its “ rst meeting last week and began work to create a baseline of county governments energy usage. The committee is expected to make advisory recommendations to county commissioners on ways to conserve energy. The meeting on Thursday, July 7, in the county administration office, included Dan Ard, an energy specialist with Talquin Electric Cooperative, who pledged to run some basic numbers on energy usage at county facilities served by Talquin. A similar report done by Progress Energy on the county administration building, shown to Ard at the meeting, drew concern from him that the countys energy use was excessive.Ž Based on the use of kilowatt hours and the size of the building, Ard noted that the report indicates the county is spending $9 per square foot to operate the administration building. If he were doing a residential home energy audit and the customer was spending more than $1 per square foot, Ard said he would tell them they had a problem. Even if one was to compare it to a commercial space and the cost was $3 a square foot … the county is still spending three times that, he said. William Wright, of the countys Of“ ce of Budget and Management, provided some rough budget data for the committee to see what the county is currently spending on energy costs. A couple of members of the county maintenance crew were at the meeting … and Ard said he always encouraged input from maintenance staff when looking at energy plans. These guys have a working knowledge of these systems,Ž Ard said and, as a result, they can oftentimes offer access to the low-hanging fruit that will absolutely get you the most results.Ž A recent audit of the county agriculture of“ ces discovered problems such as a lack of insulation in ceilings. There was also a mold problem, and Ard found that the air conditioning “ lters were the original parts … they had never been replaced. The committee tentatively set its next meeting date for July 28.Countys Energy Conservation Committee holds “ rst meeting, begins developing baseline dataJust when I start thinking we are not doing enough to save the world, somewhat short of Bruce Willis stepping in, something always happens to give me encouragement that there are a lot of things being done all over that make a difference. My family and I took a vacation out west recently and discovered there are some pretty cool things happening on the green side of things. While we were in Phoenix, Ariz., visiting friends, I noticed a UPS truck in the city with unusual lettering on the side. Closer inspection revealed Low Emission Hydraulic Hybrid.Ž The big brown trucks have gone green. Im actually behind the times because after doing some research, I learned that UPS began adding alternative energy vehicles to their ” eet in 2001 by placing the industrys “ rst hybrid electric package car into service in Huntsville, Ala. The company now includes more than 2,022 trucks powered by alternative energy fuel sources with an estimated 35 percent in fuel savings, not to mention the thousands of tons of CO2 emissions reduced annually. Thats progress. As we traveled from Phoenix up to the Grand Canyon, we drove past housing developments along the base of the mountains and noticed that many of the houses had solar panels on their rooftops. One home had a wind turbine in addition to solar panels. It was very encouraging to see alternative energy in action reflected from so many homes in one region. We passed by a gas station that had two wind turbines, one on each side of the parking lot. We stopped there to inquire with the owner or manager how much savings they realize on their utility bill. He was very comfortable sharing the data and told my husband the wind turbines produced approximately 75 percent of their total electric usage. Very impressive. There were a number of visitor centers throughout the area and of the two we visited, the bathrooms utilized compost toilets in all the stalls rather than traditional toilets. They were very clean, had no odor, and of course, did not require the use of water to ” ush, saving that valuable resource that we in Wakulla so cherish.

CHAT of Wakulla operates the Adoption Center right next to Animal Control and the walk to Animal Control is just a couple of minutes from our building. I walked by the cages where dogs looked at me with the hope that I could get them out of their situation. After all, they are there because they were discarded for one reason or the other. Some reasons for giving up an animal are valid, most of them are not. Wakulla Animal Control came upon a very serious situation. Not that they do not see horri“ c things all the time. However, this one was truly disgusting. Three dogs were surrendered from a single owner and I am happy to hear that charges are pending from the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce. Two of the dogs are severely underweight, all three were severely dehydrated, all of them were full of hookworms, roundworms, fleas, ticks and all of them had skin issues. The dogs were so hungry that they tried to eat the cobwebs that were in one corner of the exam room. The animals fecal matter consisted of hair, pine-straw and just plain dirt. Thank God for VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital, who is taking care of the dogs. Two of them are still hospitalized (been there more than a week); one of them is in foster care at one of our dedicated CHAT volunteers home. These dogs are so undernourished that a strict feeding schedule of many small meals a day had to be implemented. The most amazing thing to me is that the dog that might not make it, could not lift his head, but still managed to wag his tail after all the abuse in its life. Can you imagine a human looking at three dogs every day and not feeding them? Not even supplying water? There will be a special place in hell for people like that. There is Dog A, 4-5 month old white lab/hound mix that is very affectionate. Dog B is a 2-year-old shep/hound mix that is sweet and mellow. Dog C is a 2-year-old male yellow lab mix and is the worst of the bunch. He is not out of the woods yet. All of these dogs are intact males, but will be neutered as soon as they are able to sustain the procedure. The idea of eliminating the Division of Animal Control to help reduce the countys budget worries is insane. Animal Control is a vital government service. I am not sure how they do the job they do with the budget they have now. Animal Control protects the safety of the public and the animals that cannot speak for themselves. What would have happened to these three animals if Animal Control had not taken them from the horrid life of no food, no water and no decent human to look after them? Animal Control of“ cers have to go out on all kind of calls and take a lot of abuse from citizens who do not want to cooperate with them. We cannot expect to attract new citizens to Wakulla County without a well functioning Animal Control. Newcomers will expect, and current residents should insist, that the county provide protection for their children, family members and for the animals of this county. Dogs in packs, animals that are not current on rabies vaccinations, dangerous dogs and neglected animals loose on the streets and highways is not what we want in our community. Please help with the rehabilitation of the most recent abuse case by sending a few dollars to CHAT. Send donations to 1 Oak Street, Crawfordville, FL 32327. We would very much appreciate it.

Wed like to remind all Wakulla County Students and parents that while we carry copies of every required summer reading book for grades 6-12 and most of the optional books on the reading lists, the waiting list on many of them is rapidly growing. If your student still needs to do their summer reading please come by or contact us soon so we can try to give your child the access to their required book.


www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 14, 2011 – Page 15A GreeN Scene Dear EarthTalk: So many chemicals in everyday products are harmful to our health and the environment. Why arent we developing safer alternatives? Donna Langston Asheville, N.C. Researchers today are beginning to question the safety of many chemicals used in consumer products. Studies have linked Bisphenol A (BPA), flame retardants, phthalates and many other chemicals found in everyday products to a wide range of health problems, including cancer, learning and behavioral problems and reproductive illnesses. Despite the federal governments slowness in calling for it, nonpro“ t labs and for-pro“ t companies alike have been busy developing safer alternatives to some of these harsher chemicals. The brave new world of green chemistry,Ž in which reducing or eliminating the use or generation of hazardous substances is top priority in the design, use and disposal of products, is leading to a rash of new, safer ingredients. Companies looking to put a BPA-freeŽ sticker on their bottles, for instance, can make them instead with Eastman Tritan copolyester, a plastic alternative that doesnt disrupt hormones as Nalgene and CamelBak do. Phthalates „ used to soften plastic toys „ can be replaced with a product called Grindsted Soft-N-Safe, made from acetic acid and castor oil from the castor plant. Formaldehyde adhesives used to make plywood and other wood products can be replaced with soy-based resins, wood “ bers and plastic-wood “ bers. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) supports the effort through its sponsorship of the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. The annual awards program recognizes and helps fund efforts to reduce the amount of hazardous substances released into the environment or entering the waste stream, and efforts that reduce the public health hazards associated with the release of such substances But while the EPA has the power to spur green chemistry, it is powerless to ban many dangerous chemicals in widespread use. The 1976 law that still governs use of many chemicals, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), presumes that chemicals are innocent until proven guilty. TSCA has failed to require basic testing for the toxicity of some 62,000 chemicals grandfathered in when the law was “ rst passed. Once thought to pose little likelihood of exposure, we now know many chemicals migrate from the materials and products in which theyre used „ including furniture, plastics and food cans „ into our bodies,Ž reports the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families campaign. The campaign warns that just about every American carries hundreds of these chemicals in their bloodstreams. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) recently introduced a bill, the Safe Chemicals Act, aimed at overhauling the outdated TSCA. It would require safety testing of all existing chemicals and would promote so-called green chemistry and the development of safe alternatives to unsafe chemicals. The Act would provide the EPA with the authority it needs to protect public health, while enabling the marketplace to innovate safe products, reports Richard Denison of the Environmental Defense Fund. The bills sponsors say it expects to have widespread support on both sides of the partisan divide. Dear EarthTalk: Im looking for the best places to search for green jobs but am having trouble locating them on traditional job search sites. Where should I look? H. Jenkins Biloxi, Miss. With the environment now high atop the public agenda, green jobs are more popular than ever. Defined by eco.org (a leading green jobs website) as any job in any company where the primary focus is on reducing the impacts of our activities or products on the environment, green jobs serve to maximize ef“ cient use of resources while minimizing degradation of the planet from pollution and waste. Eco-jobs can range from engineering a photovoltaic solar cell to designing a building for more energy ef“ ciency to landscaping a yard to minimize erosion to “ nding more sustainable forestry techniques,Ž reports eco.org. While you may be hard pressed to “ nd environmental job opportunities on general employment search websites, sites like eco. org that specialize in green job listings can make your search easy. Also, many general environmental sites have employment sub-sections. Green job seekers and employers alike use these websites to “ nd each other and get their work done, whether in the non-pro“ t or for-pro“ t worlds. Eco.org prides itself on hosting a wide range of listings from colleges, environmental and other nonpro“ t groups, media outlets and government agencies. With Google and Bing listing the site “ rst for the search term eco,Ž the website generates hundreds of thousands of page visits per month from thousands of green job seekers and employers, and also keeps its audience engaged through social networking. Another leader in the “ eld is the nonpro“ t Green Jobs Network, which provides online services including a green job board and a 20,000 member group on the professional networking site LinkedIn. The group also uses its GreenJobs.net website as a platform for webinars, and is the home of the frequently updated Green Collar Blog, which provides career resources and information on the green jobs sector. Environmental Career Opportunities (ecojobs.com) is another tried and true source for green job listings. Some 50,000 targeted job seekers subscribe to the companys bi-weekly newsletter that contains unique green job opportunities. Still other places to look for green jobs include EcoEmploy.com and the Environmental Career Center. Another site, Greenjobs.com, focuses on job opportunities speci“ cally in the renewable energy sector. Jobseekers can use the website to apply for jobs, post their resume, obtain guidance on “ nding and applying for jobs, gain background information on the renewable energy sector, and access a directory of relevant companies and organizations. Employers can take advantage of the “ rms recruitment services. Browsing job listings at other more general environmental websites could also turn up that perfect opportunity. SustainableBusiness.com and the U.S. Green Building Council feature extensive green job listings as sub-sections of their websites. And yet another way to “ nd a green job is to sniff around the website of a company, organization or institution in your “ eld of interest for speci“ c job listings„or better yet, call them on the phone to “ nd out if there are any openings.

Eric is a natural bodybuilder who trained for more than a year getting ready for his “ rst natural bodybuilding competition. A native Wakulla County resident, Eric had me and other trainers at BodyTek Gym assist him in his weight training and as his posing coaches. He trained before and after work for more than three hours a day, constantly monitoring his meal plans and cardio. Eric is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and has had more than three deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. If you see Eric, thank him, first of all, for his military service and, second, congratulate him for his “ rst place win as a natural bodybuilder in the novice heavyweight division. Now, what is a natural competitor? The best de“ nition that I could come up with is, a dedicated individual who respects his genetic ability and limitations, and believes in long term health. Their overall training, nutrition, macro-cycles and supplements are a way of life. So, if youre going to call yourself a natural competitor,Ž then train like one, but more importantly, educate yourself and know what goes into and on your body. Everyone has heard the expression, Hes a Natural!Ž So if you are a natural baseball, tennis, football or bodybuilding competitor then you are up at the crack of dawn, working out, eating the correct amount of protein, carbohydrates, fats and sugars for your speci“ c sport, constantly practicing and training, respecting and listening to your trainers and coaches, focusing on the task at hand. A natural competitor does not need performanceenhancing drugs. Natural competitors will always compete with what God gave them, no crutch, no extra hormone therapy, nothing but their determination and conviction to their sport. A naturalŽ lives a healthy lifestyle, so they can in-turn instill their natural abilitiesŽ to their children and grandchildren. So again, thanks to Eric Ford for being a Natural CompetitorŽ and to all you other naturals out there … KUDOS! Pam Chicester is a trainer at Body-Tek Gym in Crawfordville. She can be reached at 926-2348.At right, Eric Ford after taking “ rst place at the recent Super Natural Bodybuilding Competition. GET FITBy PAMELA CHICHESTERMy husband recently died. I also recently lost my dearest friend, Joe Blanchard. Yoga has helped me understand and cope with death by dealing with apprehension about my own mortality or struggling with the loss of a loved one. Though grief is a natural human emotion, it is often debilitating. The wisdom behind yoga is powerful in healing both physically and emotionally and can help you deal with your pain and become whole again. Yoga helps you get in touch with your true self. When ” uctuations of consciousness cease, and you are able to tap into your soul and find your essence,Ž this is called drastuh or seer.Ž All aspects of yoga are designed to help you discover this inner light. Through yoga, you can begin to understand that there is an awareness within you that is both unconditional and eternal. Yoga explains that this is crucial in preparing for death because it helps us to distinguish between the seerŽ and the seen.Ž All things that are of temporary existence are part of the seen.Ž These include your body, mind and emotions. Yoga helps keep your sensory organs (eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin) in good condition so that you are able to distinguish better between the seerŽ and the seen.Ž Once you can make that distinction, it is easier to discover the seerŽ or drastuh in you, and you can understand your spirit as a separate entity from your body. Attachment is a major source of grief. Vairagya is a principle of yoga that focuses on nonattachment. Clinging on to something goes against one of yogas primary truths, which is that everything changes and everything will eventually end.Ž If you never allow yourself to become attached to the physical things in the world, you will never experience grief. Yoga teaches us to love the spirit within the body rather than the body itself. The spirit is eternal. Pranayama (breathing) exercises concentrate on breathing, which is the bridge between the conscious and unconscious. Since grief is part of the unconscious, pranayama helps you tap into that. Another part of the program involves six cleansing techniques that target the endocrine system. Deep relaxation and a closing sankalpa (resolution) meditation ends the session. Most of these kinds of programs also focus on modulating the breath, easing the pain and curbing obsessive thinking. Yoga helps you do this by focusing on the immediate physical and emotional experience. Dont get over it,Ž but work through it.Ž A process called degriefingŽ encourages people to use somatic (body movement) therapies. Our society views death as a failure instead of as a natural part of life. Through yoga, you can view death as something that happens every day, just as birth does. Although society tells you that you are your body, yoga helps you understand that the body is merely a shell. You are your essence, the seer, the spirit. The body grows, ages and dies. Yoga is designed to keep the body healthy and strong so that it lasts, but its philosophy emphasizes that it is just the outer covering. Through yoga, you begin to realize, We are not the form we animate, but the force of animation itself.Ž Once you understand that, death becomes signi“ cantly easier to deal with.

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

The Wakulla Summer Sunday Radio Program: Exploring the People, History, and Traditions of Wakulla County, hit the airwaves on June 24. Headed up by Herb Donaldson, the program (SSRP) is a six episode series on various topics relating to Wakulla, which airs on Sundays at 4 p.m. and Mondays and Fridays at 8 p.m. on WAVE 94.1. Donaldson explained that after living in New York for years and moving back to Wakulla, his hometown, he felt out of touch. I was starting to feel like a transplant, not a native...I wanted to kind of get back in the know of Wakulla again,Ž he said. Donaldson thought the best way to understand Wakulla County was to communicate directly with the people.Ž Donaldson met Chuck Robinson, owner of The Works Co-working Cafe, at the local Tropicana Speech Contest, where the two were judges. They got to talking, and decided to collaborate on a project that was all about Wakulla County and working together. Robinson said that the SSRP was a natural extensionŽ of Wakulla Story, a play that Donaldson wrote for the Wakulla County Historical Society. The play covers the early history of Wakulla up to 1843, the year that Wakulla was of“ cially founded. Robinson said that after they decided to embark on the project, he and Donaldson brainstormed and decided what topics they wanted to cover. Then they had to ask themselves, Whos who in Wakulla County to cover those subjects?Ž Everything else [after that] was serendipity,Ž Robinson stated. After the first round of interviews … of at least 15 people … the computer storing the interviews crashed. Brett Allbritton, who assisted Donaldson and Robinson with the technical aspects of the project, just said, Lets hit them again.Ž So they went back out to reinterview, with their tails between their legs, as Donaldson put it. Everyone was very gracious about it,Ž Donaldson said. Their attitudes showed the spirit of Wakulla County, the willingness of its citizens to work together., he added. Donaldson was very grateful of the support that Doug Apple, Wave 94 station manager, provided. He described Apple as an all around nice guy,Ž who offered advice and any kind of on-the-spot assistance that was needed. Robinson said that Apple really seems to care about Wakulla. Apple said that Donaldson approached him with the idea for the SSRP a couple of months ago, and that he liked it right away and agreed to run it. We want to serve the local community,Ž Apple explained. Herb seems like a visionary for creative radio and Wakulla County storytelling.Ž Donaldson said of the “ rst episode, I feel it was received very well.Ž He wasnt sure how things were going to turn out, but said he received calls, texts and emails of support afterwards, which he found very inspirational. A recent episode, which ran the weekend of Independence Day, was about gaining personal independence. Donaldson explained that he had read an article about the 1,200 plus state workers who recently lost their jobs headlined Biggest worker shake-up in history,Ž and wondered if such lay-offs are solely a misfortune, or if they could be a new chance, a sort of carpe diemŽ for some to “ nd a new way to support themselves that provides meaning … if not as much money. Donaldson wanted to look at the history of Wakulla, and how its people found a way to do their own thing. The episode consisted largely of interviews with local business owners, interspersed with brief accounts of the beginnings of entrepreneurs in Wakullas past. Some business owners, such as Scott Kurlander of The Black Bean, and Robinson, began businesses that offer something to the county that no one else does. Kurlander serves Cuban cuisine, and Robinson, in his own words, provides a traditional cafe married with office spaceŽ … and free wi“ Others compete by using new approaches to traditional businesses … such as the utilization of sustainable energy in farming. Crescent Moon Organic Farm runs entirely on biodiesel. An organic blueberry vendor at the Sopchoppy Organic Market suggested simply finding a way to market your hobby. Donaldson said that in the process of putting together the series, he has learned a lot. He has learned more about the judicial system from Brent Thurmond, Clerk of Courts, and more about how churches take their work out into the community from Glen Hamel, who runs Promise Land Ministries, for example. Donaldson said he has learned most from the environmental episode, which aired last weekend. Jeff Hugo shared the history of Wakulla Springs, and Cal Jamison described the local water ecosystem. Donaldson, who remembers people just dumping chemical waste into their yards from his younger days, asked Jamison to explain what happens to the water when oil, for instance, is dumped on the ground. Donaldson learned that the “ ve to 15 feet of soil do not act as a “ lter; gravity will pull all the oil down to the limestone beneath. The porous limestone is part of the aquifer, so when the oil reaches it, the oil goes straight to the water supply. Donaldson and Robinson also learned that refrigerators, cars, boats and even an old-fashioned Coke machine are among the items recovered from Cherokee Sink, where people have discarded their unwanted goods in the past. It was so timely,Ž Donaldson said of the environmental episode, which comes at a time when the county is considering how to best utilize its natural resources such as Wakulla Springs. Donaldson hopes that people who listen to the program will learn more of what Wakulla has to offer, and understand and appreciate how much everyone is connected. This summers series, which will include episodes such as Faith and Social Work and Local Heroes, is serving as a tester,Ž according to Donaldson. If the SSRP is a success, Donaldson would like to make it a yearly event. Donaldson and Robinson, who feel they have only scratched the surface of Wakulla, are interested in continuing to document the stories and histories of the county, and in increasing the level of community interaction. They would like anyone with ideas to email them. Donaldsons email is palavertreetheater@gmail. com and Robinsons is chuck@theworkscafe.com.Summer Sunday Radio Program looks at Wakulla CAROLE TOLERPlaywright Herb Donaldson, left, and Chuck Robinson of The Works teamed up to develop the Summer Sunday Radio Program to look at various topics in Wakulla County, focusing on people, history and tradition.Summer Sunday Radio Program airs on WAVE 94.1 on Sunday at 4 p.m., and Monday and Friday at 8 p.m. A local playwright getting in touch with his community after years of being in New York and businessman Chuck Robinson of e Works team up to look at Wakulla in a weekly radio show e summer series has ranged from issues such as the local environment to job lay-o s. curry’sthea songwriting trio blending relaxing, vocal harmonies and impressive, lyrical, original songs to perform Saturday, July 16 at 8 p.m.Tickets are $10 Reserved sea ng is encouraged.
