By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIt has been almost three weeks since a new face took over operations of the Wakulla Springs Lodge and its seems the transition has been seamless.However, many in the community are worried that changes may be made to the lodge by the new operator that might diminish the rustic and old-fashioned feel of the lodge. Theres some anxiety that we are going to turn it into a Chilis or something,Ž said Lodge Manager Jon Steele. One concern is that lodge would be modernized, including the addition of televisions in the 27 rooms. Steele said no TVs will be added. We are standing “ rm to that,Ž Steele said. The lodge was built in 1937 by entrepreneur Edward Ball and has been kept mostly in its original condition, with some improvements. The state of Florida eventually purchased the site in 1986 and had been operating the lodge up until July 1. Steele was hired by Cape Leisure Corp. which entered into a “ ve-year agreement with the state to operate the lodge, restaurant, soda fountain and gift shop. Under the agreement, the state will continue to have ownership over the lodge. Cape Leisure will pay the state a monthly fee and monthly commission based on gross sales for all its operations. For the “ rst year, the monthly base fee is $3,000 plus 2 percent of gross sales. That increases to $5,000 and 3 percent the following year and after that the percent of gross sales increases 1 percent each year. The corporation is also required to create a Capital Improvement Account for future capital improvement projects. The cost to operate the lodge is between $1.4 million and $1.5 million, according to Park Manager Brian Fugate. It has been reported that the park and lodge are not a pro“ t-maker. As part of a 15-percent reduction in the states budget, a statewide plan was initiated to seek out vendors to take over concessions at several state parks. Seven proposals to run the concessions were submitted to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Cape Leisure was selected as the top ranked vendor. President of Cape Leisure, Daniel LeBlanc, said, We are absolutely thrilled to be charged with the stewardship of the Wakulla Springs Lodge.Ž LeBlanc described the lodge as a jewel and said they plan to keep the history of the lodge intact. Were very proud and at the same time understand our responsibility,Ž LeBlanc said.

At a highly emotional sentencing hearing on Thursday, July 21, Jessica Marie Bouchard Kelley got 15 years in prison, suspended after she serves 124 months, with the remainder of the term to be served on probation. Both families pleaded with Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls: Bouchards family begged for mercy from the court, while the family of Marcus Kelley, the 23-year-old husband who was killed in the crash, asked the court to impose the maximum sentence. Friends and family of Bouchard presented a portrait of an extremely troubled young woman who endured a childhood of neglect and physical and sexual abuse and, as an adolescent, began abusing drugs and alcohol. She cried as she addressed the court and the family of her late husband, expressing her remorse and regret. I am a victim in this as well,Ž she said. Marcus died in my arms that night. I felt his last heartbeat, felt his last breath.Ž Glenda Ricks, the mother of Marcus Kelley, in her comments to the court, called the claim that Bouchard felt his last heartbeat a lie … his body was battered in the wreck that night, his skull cracked open and his brain spilled all over the scene. There was no way that what Bouchard claimed happened could have happened, Ricks said. She didnt hold Marcus as he died … My son had no head,Ž she said.Continued on Page 12AWoman sentenced to 10 years for crash that killed her husband PHOTOS BY JENNIFER JENSEN Board approves Edwards contractBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe contract for incoming County Administrator David Edwards was accepted by the county commission at the July 18 meeting and includes a starting salary of $82,825 and no extra bene“ ts above what other county employees receive. Edwards will also get a county vehicle, cell phone and an agreement that the county will defend his actions involving county duties. He will his start on Oct. 1. Commissioner Mike Stewart met with Edwards to discuss the terms of his contract after the commission voted to hire Edwards on June 21. Edwards had asked for family health insurance, which would be fully paid by the county, and short term disability. However, the commission didnt feel he should receive anything the other employees do not. Commissioner Randy Merritt said he felt Edwards should contribute to his insurance like all employees. Edwards was in attendance at the meeting and said that was acceptable. He said he asked for the short term disability because it was something he had received in a previous job and felt it was a good bene“ t. Commissioner Jerry Moore said, Youll get the same thing everybody else has.Ž Continued on Page 3APublic hearing set for bed tax increaseBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe possibility of increasing the countys tourist development tax has caused quite a stir. People in the community have voiced some negative opinions about the increase in the form of letters to the editor, during citizens to be heard, to commissioners and by word of mouth. The bed tax is levied on payments received for the rental or lease of accommodations for less than six months and is set at 2 percent. This tax goes directly to the Wakulla Tourism Development Council to use for marketing efforts. For the last five years, it has generated between $35,000 and $40,000, according to TDC Director Pam Portwood. TDC was asking the county commission to increase the tax to 3 percent and then to 4 percent six months later. Portwood said it would generate an additional $20,000 the “ rst year and an additional $40,000 the following years. At the July 18 county commission meeting, the item was to schedule and advertise a public hearing to consider adopting the increase. This item was included under consent items, which are not discussed individually. Several citizens said they had requested it be pulled for discussion, but none of the “ ve commissioners removed it.Continued on Page 14AMarketing the LodgeThe walkway to the historic lodge at Wakulla Springs State Park on a recent rainy afternoon.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 21, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Steele expressed the same sentiments and said he felt honored to be the caretaker of the historic lodge. Im so thrilled because of the uniqueness, the history and the location,Ž Steele said. Their focus will be enhancing the history, Steele said. Steele has been in the hotel business since 1985 and also has experience in running a historic hotel. He helped open the Marquesa Hotel in Key West and was the hotel manager for 15 years before moving to Tallahassee in 2003. Their approach for that hotel was to be the customer, he said. And he said he sees a lot of similarities in the Marquesa and Wakulla Lodge. They both have 27 rooms and have a restaurant. This is a bigger venture for me, but my background has really prepared me,Ž Steele said. Since Cape Leisure took over, about 10 employees have either left for another state job, retired or have been let go. About 90 percent stayed on,Ž Steele said. There are about 40 employees at the lodge, the same level the state employed, he said. LeBlanc added, If they wanted to stay, they are there.Ž They have also hired a sales manager, SaLena Gonzalez, to handle events, such as weddings, reunions, meetings, etc. The large spaces the lodge has are not being utilized as much as they should be. We have so much meeting space and grand space,Ž Steele said. In relation to increasing rentals, the corporation will be marketing heavily, including radio, TV, print and online. LeBlanc said he wants to create a much higher pro“ le for the lodge. He added that the lodge has a loyal following, people who return each year, but he also wants to reach out to new customers. A website has been created for the lodge at www. wakullaspringslodge.org and soon people will be able to book their reservations online. Currently the only way to reserve a room is to call the lodge. LeBlanc said once online reservations are included, they will be able to tie into online websites like travelocity, orbitz and others. Thats critical,Ž LeBlanc said. Thats enormous what it will do.Ž The lodge rooms have been sold out most nights, but during the offseason, those numbers drop signi“ cantly. The cost of rooms range from $85 to $125 a night and are the same the state charged. We are continuing with the states published pricing,Ž Steele said. They are actually priced appropriately and we dont see a need to raise it.Ž Steele said he is optimistic they will see an increase in volume, which will make the lodge pro“ table. The company also plans to bring other improvements to the lodge, including extending the hours for the restaurant. We want to serve the people better,Ž Steele said. The restaurant will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. for breakfast, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch and 6 to 9 p.m. for dinner. They are also evaluating the menus and plan to keep the traditional items, but add some new dishes, including those for vegetarians and vegans. The restaurant is also going to be “ ne dining during dinner and stay casual for breakfast and lunch. There is also a plan to take advantage of their beer, wine and liquor license more, he said. The menu for the soda fountain has been expanded to included subs and barbecue sandwiches and Steele said they will continue to expand it. The soda fountain has been rocking,Ž Steel said. There is also a plan to add an icecream cart to offer icecream, as well as snow cones to those swimming in the springs. They also hope to add another area for concessions near the bathhouse and Dogwood Pavilion. The lodge lobby will also have wi“ access available very soon, which will eventually be extended to the rooms shortly after. Steele said they will also be rearranging the lobby to make it a little nicer. I think we can do some great stuff,Ž Steele said. We have lots to work with.Ž Cape Leisure also plans to be heavily involved in the community and continue to be a part of the Wildlife Festival and other events in the county, as well as work with the Friends of the Wakulla Springs. LeBlanc said he wants to attract more visitors not just to the lodge, but to the county.Marketing the Lodge: Cape Leisure aims to attract new visitors PHOTO BY RON PIASECKI PHOTO BY LOU KELLENBERGERThe back of the lodge as seen from Wakulla Springs in the fall, above.

She also had concerns about what the increase would be used for and what the negative impacts are. There was also concern about the mention of increasing Portwoods hours in the item. Portwoood said the item didnt add hours, it just said some money could be spent for additional hours. Any increase in hours would have to go through the TDC and then brought to the commission. According to the agenda item, the revenue would be used for increased support and promotion of local events, social marketing, production of promotional items such as tear-off maps and videos, attendance at travel shows, improvements to the website, provide stipends for student internships, increase Tourist Development Council Director hours to develop and implement marketing campaigns, and continue the most effective ad campaigns started with prior years grant funding. Commissioner Lynn Artz said she did not pull the item because she wanted to have a workshop instead to provide information about the TDC and the plans for the revenue increase. Artz added that she didnt think the public had a good understanding of the TDC. Commissioner Mike Stewart expressed his frustration about the situation. Theres been some ugly stuff sent around,Ž Stewart said. He added that the TDC has public meetings and there is no reason those people with concerns cant go get answers. Commissioner Alan Brock, who represents the commission on the TDC, said the TDC holds two roundtable discussions each year, in addition to its monthly meetings, to inform the public. People have also said they dont think the TDC should have paid staff and use volunteers instead, Brock said, but it doesnt work. We have a system that is working,Ž Brock said. He said several people who have expressed their apprehensions have also done so at TDC meetings. Im frustrated with the way its being spun in the public,Ž Brock said. He added that the TDC is the one that requested the bed tax increase and it was voted for unanimously by the nine members. Artz made a motion to schedule a workshop, but could not receive a second. Several commissioners said citizens could get the chance to voice concerns at the public hearing.Public hearing set for bed tax increaseBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSt. Marks may be the location of a bene“ t concert on Sept. 24. Max Cleve, with Educate the 3rd Inc., came to the July 14 St. Marks City Commission meeting to get approval to hold a concert in St. Marks to raise money for a school in Haiti. Educate the 3rd is a nonpro“ t organization dedicated to the intellectual enhancement of the youth, in what is considered to be third world countries or regions, according to its website. Cleve said this is the “ rst event being held in the North Florida region and they liked the location of St. Marks. The proposed location of the event is on property at the corner of Riverside Cafe. City Manager Zoe Mans“ eld said that area is not city property, but is owned by Stan West of Riverside Cafe and two or three other people. Cleve said he already received support from West, but he did not know West only owned a portion of the property. The commission said Cleve would need approval from the other owners, as well as a special events permit. Commissioner Gail Gilman said she also wanted to know exactly where the money generated would be going. The event is planned to start on the St. Marks Bike Trail at the Capital Circle trailhead at 10:30 a.m. and then lead up to the concert in St. Marks at 1 p.m. Cleve said he has collected signatures of approval from several businesses in the area and plans to collect them from all local businesses. We dont want to hinder any businesses,Ž Cleve said. There will be a maximum of 10 vendors at the concert, which will provide drinks mainly, no food or alcohol, he said. Cleve said they plan to make their money through ticket sales, which will be $10. I see no reason why we shouldnt at least go to the next step,Ž said Commissioner Phil Cantner. The commission agreed, as long as Cleve comes back with the items requested. The commission tabled the item and said it may schedule a special meeting since the event is only a couple months away. In another matter, the commission set the millage rate for 2011-12 at 5.0327 per $100 of assessed property value. This is the same amount as the previous year. The rollback rate is 5.9 mills. This is what it would take to generate the same amount of money as the previous year. Mayor Chuck Shields said by passing this rate, the commission cant increase it, but can lower it. The commission voted unanimously to keep the millage rate the same. € The commission also discussed increasing the fee for a one day occupational license from $10 to $25. The $10 fee has been advertised as such for vendors of the Stone Crab Festival in October. Mansfield said they would waive the increase for that festival since it has already been advertised. Attorney Rhonda Divagno Morris, who was “ lling in for City Attorney Ron Mowrey, asked that the commission table the item so she could determine if an ordinance or resolution would be needed. ST.

I read Mrs. Hickmans and Mrs. Coopers recent letters and was wondering if the Tourist Development Council and their director had come to their senses as to all the money spent on one person, the director. Apparently not. I and others are concerned with the majority of bed tax funds going to pay one persons salary. The agenda for the July 18 BOCC meeting included this item. Under the consent items we had a request from the Tourist Development Director asking for more personal compensation, as supposedly the completion of her work is requiring more hours!? As a contractor, she has a “ xed priced contract, not a cost plus contract. No hours in contract, so how can you get more money for hours when you dont have to work any? As a contractor we owe her for travel? Does your plumber get travel? And why the consent agenda, where no one can speak to the issue! During the last budget process, ending in September 2010, apparently the TDC budget secured some increases that most people didnt notice. The directors compensation escalated from $2,083 per month to $2,437.91 per month. Health insurance also became a budgeted line item at $7,745, making the annual remuneration for some amount of part-time work (we dont even know how much), $37,000. And how many other part-time employees even get insurance? Additionally, the position receives travel reimbursement and fees paid for memberships that can be utilized under other grants. How can we be sure, if the bed tax money is increased, that the county will see more revenue through the in” ux of tourism? If not, how will the monies for her compensation be funded? From county tax dollars? Or no salary for the last months of the “ scal year for the director? Current contracts with the director dont even mention the number of hours worked as an issue of any kind. There is no oversight. Supposedly, one could work one hour or maybe as many as 30 hours. If thats the case, how can we approve yet another request for additional funds if no hours were ever scheduled? Or reported? There seems to be no time sheets available to check. And how about furloughs, is our director exempt from the plight of what the rest of the county faces? Uses of the bed tax money could be, but are not limited to, improving our public beaches and bathhouses. This money could have been used for all the repairs/improvements to the Wakulla County Welcome Center, instead of taking if from the general revenue of the county. But there was no money for the much-needed improvements because the majority of the bed tax money goes to one thing … the salary of the Tourist Development Director. By accepting this agenda, will the businesses that are required to pay bed tax receive a 100-percent increase in tourism, along with their 100-percent increase in the taxes they pay! What will they get for that money? And when will they get to speak about it? Mary Cortese CrawfordvilleABOUT THE TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL:Questions about increasing directors pay Wakulla County needs the TDCEditor, The News: In response to a couple of recent letters about the Wakulla County Tourist Development Council: On July 14, the monthly TDC meeting was held at the Wakulla Welcome Center and about a dozen interested citizens who are not on the TDC board attended, including some of the citizens whose letters recently appeared in The Wakulla News. I was especially glad they were there so that any and all questions they had could be answered and explained. As it turns out, the TDC was able to provide answers to the majority of their questions and is in the process of researching additional information to some of the other questions presented to the council. In the letters that were submitted, several of the questions centered on questioning the integrity of TDC Director Pam Portwood. This was the most disturbing part of the letters and is my motivation for submitting this letter. The service Pam Portwood has provided to Wakulla County through the years is impeccable. She spent 10 years working as a grant writer for the county before becoming TDC director. She successfully secured millions of dollars for Wakulla County providing the initial funding for many of the services and programs we enjoy today. Pam Portwood was not appointed or selected as some would suggest, but was hired from a pool of applicants and was determined to be the person most quali“ ed and could lead the Wakulla TDC to higher levels. Through her experience as a grant writer and program administrator, she brought fresh ideas to the board. She has fully devoted her time and energy to the promotion of Wakulla County around the state. One of the key things she initiated was to travel to The Villages retirement community trade show, held annually in central Florida. This community has an estimated 70,000 residents with disposable income. Each time Pam has attended the trade show, brochures and pamphlets from area businesses are stuffed into complimentary bags and handed out to those who visit the Wakulla booth. As many as 1,000 bags are handed out and, within weeks, area hotels and campgrounds reported visitors who came as a result. TDC revenue is also spent to advertise Wakulla in as many publications as possible covering the greatest circulation for the least amount of money spent. Wakulla tear-off maps listing every campground and sightseeing attractions are handed out to visitors of the Welcome Center and at area restaurants. The Wakulla TDC also worked with two other counties to create the Big Bend Scenic Byway, which is the longest scenic byway in Florida and was recently placed on the Rand-McNally maps circulated worldwide. Wakulla TDC on several occasions has hosted outdoor writers to come to our area and write about our wonders of Wakulla in regional and national publications. The business economy of all of Wakulla County is directly bene“ tted by the advertising efforts of the Wakulla TDC. Pam Portwood has provided extraordinary leadership to the Wakulla TDC and is a valuable asset to Wakulla County. I believe Wakulla County businesses need the TDC and the TDC needs Pam Portwood as its director. Richard Harden Vice-chairman Wakulla TDC Editor, The News: I recently read in the The Wakulla News about the best job in the county. Besides the letter to the editor having few facts correct, it was a pretty good letter. There are two types of people in this wonderful county it seems. They are DOERS and STOPPERS and the writer of that letter was? STOPPERS take pride in stopping what they dont personally want, dont understand fully and or dont like much because it is new. Some are C.A.V.E people … Citizens Against Virtually Everything … but most are just life long stoppers. It is pretty easy to stop stuff given so much fear and misinformation is already available to use. But starting stuff and DOING stuff is where the enjoyable and rewarding future is. The TDC is DOERS and are really trying to get the county and the area with the times and with the technology. Doing is full of chance and unmarked territory. Doing is innovation at its best and the best is about a 10 percent success rate as you begin doing whatever vision or dream you choose. Doing is about the long term and sticking to a reasonable goal using reasonable logic and reasonable people. The TDCs vision of a naturebased/heritage/history way for the county is a great one given the fact we are mostly natural diverse lands and wild water resource based. STOPPING is not a vision! That special try that Wakullas TDC is attempting is trying to move the mindsets into new areas and new ways of being and of thinking of our county. It is easy to give up and release the vision to the STOPPERS and just watch as we become just like everywhere else, just a county built by Florida Statutes and the state comp plan. A no-mans land of state and federal interests not in any way connected to the local people or local needs. As a “ lmmaker and fellow human, I enjoy working with people towards pro-active, positive and long term outcomes, I will work with anyone who wants to make the county a better place for nature, residents and visitors. My hopes are that the TDCs vision and ways are further enhanced to the point of being grown fully. If we play fair together and work on the big picture not the little ” aws we could be the nature based and sustainable rural model county for the state. To the TDC … Great job, great people and great vision. Thank you and the commission for letting me be a part of something local and of big long term positive consequences. Robert Seidler Filmmaker Sopchoppy e real best job is being a doerEditor, The News : With all the threats recently to the environment coming from all angles, one that is largely under the radar is the imminent decision to allow the Buckeye Pulp Mill in Perry to pipe its nasty ef” uent (i.e., industrial wastewater) to the mouth of the Fenholloway River smack dab in Apalachee Bay of Floridas Big Bend. You may feel like checking the date of the paper after reading that sentence. Many of you may have heard of this pipeline issue in the early 1990s when it was beaten back but obviously not killed. Some of you may even have ventured over to Perry some three years ago to tell the Environmental Protection Agency staffers to not just shove the industrial pollution out to sea in order to ostensibly clean up the river. Last year, we were pleading the Florida Department of Protection to not create technical loopholes to allow this pipeline to pollute our Gulf directly. The problem at hand is that the Buckeye Pulp Mill is still operating under permit that expired in the 1990s and it either cant or wont clean up its ef” uent enough to be safe for the Fenholloway River. Now the DEP and EPA are about to approve water quality standard loopholes that would enable the paper plant to pipe its industrial ef” uent out to the mouth of the river. Rather than force Buckeye to clean up its polluted ef” uent, which is currently discharging 26 miles upstream, the agencies that are supposed to help protect the environment (its right there in both their names!) are enabling the plant to offshoreŽ its pollution problem. If approved, approximately 50 million gallons of industrial pollution will ” ow each day right into Apalachee Bay and into the Big Bend Aquatic Seagrasses Preserve … which oddly enough is managed by that same DEP. Looking at the map of the Big Bend Preserve, a large chunk right in the middle around the Fenholloway has been carved out. Why? Because that is a dead zoneŽ where that wonderful and lush seagrass of the preserves namesake no longer thrives due to the industrial pollution of that river by that paper mill. Neither do the critters that rely on healthy seagrasses. Critters such as blue crabs, stone crabs, gag grouper, spotted seatrout, red“ sh and many more that have economic importance to this very region and county typically thrive in healthy seagrass beds. The already existing 10-square mile dead zone is a mere 25 miles at most from the mouth of the St. Marks River. Commercial “ shermen from Wakulla and elsewhere venture right off shore of the Big Bend to harvest various seafood including stone crabs, one of the most valuable commercial “ sheries remaining in the region. Recreational “ shing and water enthusiasts of all ” avors should be alarmed that the Buckeye Paper Mill may soon receive the go ahead to essentially expand that dead zone further out so sea. Aside from directly impacting the seagrasses, another major concern with the ef” uent is the high probability of harmful algae blooms (i.e., red tides) that will likely occur in coastal waters. The proposed pipe merely shifts industrial pollution downstream and closer to a once pristine coastal marine environment that is utilized by countless important critters and humans alike, and by the way will dump into a DEP aquatic preserve. For more about this and other water quality issues, come to the public library this Thursday, July 21 at 7 p.m. to hear one of Floridas premier experts on water, Linda Young of the Clean Water Network of Florida. To voice your disdain now instead of waiting to hear from Linda, contact Nancy Stoner at the EPA at (202) 564-5700 or stoner. nancy@epa.gov. Chad Hanson CrawfordvilleBuckeye Pulp Mill threatens seagrassesEditor, The News: I went in to the Wakulla County Library last Saturday and found it closed. That didnt upset me (much), because I knew furloughs were in the offing from quiet whispers when I was there two weeks before. What I dont understand is why (I assume) the county commission chose to eliminate any time that the working public can use the facility. Setting the hours that the public library is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday eliminates anyone who works in Tallahassee and most of those who work in Wakulla unless we take time off to accommodate those hours. Most working women I know cant make it by 6 p.m. because they have to go home and feed their families. Those men who dont have similar responsibilities cant make it by 6 either unless they drive by on their way home. That leaves, for library patronage, adults who by choice or chance arent working a regular job, retired people and high school students who have cars. Did anyone notice that by eliminating most of the reading public you have essentially said We dont need a library.Ž Excuse me? My husband and I have lived and paid taxes in Wakulla County for 32 years. We raised our family here. Guess where I took my children on Saturday mornings? When it wasnt off to the rec park, it was the library. Id guess that I check out an average of nine books every two to three weeks. There is now a big hole in my life. Why cant the librarys open hours be staggered at least once a week? How about opening at 1 p.m. and closing at 8 p.m.? Or, they could be closed one morning a week and open on Saturday morning. This situation tells me that those people making decisions dont see the value of a library. Dont they know that reading is one of the most important skills that a child can learn? Ann Stanton CrawfordvilleEditors Note: Library Director Scott Joyner said this week that hes heard lots of complaints about the current hours but made the decision so he wouldnt disrupt the current summer youth programs going on at the library … which have activities Tuesday through Friday. The program ends next Friday, July 29, so beginning the “ rst week of August, the library will be back on its regular schedule … except for regular county furlough days. MAP BY DEP The map of Big Bend Aquatic Seagrasses Preserve shows a dead zone around the Fenholloway River due to industrial pollution from the paper mill. Public librarys hours are frustrating

She has Alzheimers disease and wandered away from her home in Panacea on Friday, July 15. Thanks to Capt. Randall Taylor who oversees Project Lifesaver. Please support the local Volunteer Fire Departments, these men and women give unsel“ shly of their time to help in all situations. Events such as these bring home just how important it is to have a fully staffed sheriffs of“ ce, programs such as Project Lifesaver, the Volunteer Fire Departments and the Emergency Medical Service. Had it not been for the quick response of these wonderful people, our family could have been faced with a very sad and tragic outcome. Thank you and God bless you all, The Taylor family Panacea Editor, The News: A Good Samaritan helped a gopher tortoise at some point in the past. From the looks of this tortoise, the aid was given quite a few years ago. We came across this gopher walking along Railroad Avenue, north of Sopchoppy, and stopped to see why he looked a bit odd. As you can see from the photo, this tortoise has a Humpty Dumpty story in his past. On his backside is a patchwork of “ berglass that was used to piece his shell back together again after some unfortunate accident. So, to the Good Samaritan who helped this tortoise, I hope you see this photo and know that you did a good thing. This old guy was very healthy looking and moved like he had many more years left in his life.

You know who you are. Rotary Youth Camp will be so much better this year because of your sel” ess giving. Thank each of you for blessing our campers. God bless you all. Laura Floyd Rotary Youth Camp Limited quantities of the second edition Resource Directory produced by the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth are available now! The directory is a listing of programs and services available in Wakulla and surrounding communities. Everything from baby needs to food assistance, substance abuse and mental health treatment to volunteer service in Wakulla can be found in the directory. Funding for the directory was provided to the coalition from the Department of Children and Families. Organized under the leadership of Shelley Swenson, FCS, EFNEP Extension Agent II with the Wakulla County Extension Office, and assisted by Grace Keith of the Wakulla County Health Department and Ken Gambill, the directory is small enough to “ t inside a desk drawer or the glove box in your car. If your agency or program would like to have a supply of these directories to use in referring individuals or families in need, please reach the coalition of“ ce at 926-3526 to request multiple copies no later than July 22. The “ rst edition was used by Wakulla School District counselors and teachers, SROs, sheriffs deputies who had a copy readily available in their patrol cars, the Health Department, the Chamber of Commerce, the Wakulla News, churches, NAMI, EMS and “ re“ ghters and providers. If you are in a position where people seek you out for help when they need it, this guide is a valuable resource. Please call right away with the quantity you need, and to ask for a PDF version for hosting on your web site. Resource directory available eres no growth with gridlockEditor, The News: The commissioners and other of“ cials are encouraging growth in the county. Well, heres to the death of Wakulla County. We will all die in the gridlock north of Crawfordville to the Leon County line, unable to go north or south or sideways. Common sense tells me for growth to be successful, you need roads to accommodate the increased traf“ c. Four-laning the above section of 319 sure could accumulate a lot of jobs for laid-off state employees and others. But I know with all the red tape and rules this is not feasible. Im still waiting in traf“ c and burning more fuel. Daisy Simpkins CrawfordvilleSupport Florida Wild MammalEditor, The News: I stopped at the Florida Wild Mammal Associations yard sale on July 2 and was given a list of items that they are in need of. I think that when times are hard we all think of the little money we do have and where should we put it to do the most good. These little animals wont make it without help. The FWMA has been around for a long time trying to save the ones they could. Ask your local businesses if they would contribute what they cant sell, or whats out of date, or broken packages. Pick up some things at Dollar General for them. Use coupons to buygeneral medical supplies, or dog food or cat food or birdseed. If you hit the yard sales, see if they have some items that might be of use. See if theres some way you can help. I saw that little fawn on their website with bandages on his legs. I hope he makes it and is returned to the wild. Mary Pitts Panacea ank you for “ nding our mother Rotary Youth Camp support appreciatedEditor, The News: I attended the Sopchoppy Independence Day Celebration on the Fourth of July. I went especially to hear Rick Ott Band, my favorite band. As a bonus, Lindsay Evans and her father Jerry Evans performed. What a beautiful voice you have, Lindsay. Thank you for dedicating a song to me. I danced my feet off and loved it. Jerry, you are fantastic on the keyboard. Thanks for making my night. Peg Attridge Ochlockonee Bay Enjoyed performance by Lindsay Evans Restore Shell Point golf cart ordinance Editor, The News: To the Wakulla Board of Commissioners, My name is Mike Pearson and I have a second home at Shell Point. I have had a home there for over 10 years. I would like to encourage the board to reconsider and restore the original golf cart ordinance. There are no major highways running through our little community that would merit a change for any safety reasons. The original ordinance has served us well. There have been no accidents or incidents to give cause for a change just because a change may be needed in other parts of the county or state. By imposing these unnecessary changes it would just be another way of taxing or levying a cost the people of the Shell Point and surrounding community. Thanks, Mike Pearson Shell Point Editors Note: Dozens of Shell Point residents sent substantially the same letter to county commissioners and The News last week. At the commission meeting on Monday, July 18, the board unanimously voted to restore the original ordinance.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 21, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports Outdoors From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Were definitely in a rainy pattern. As long as there is no lightning with it, it makes for good “ shing conditions, temperature wise. Fishing is still pretty good and scalloping seems to be getting better each week. Just watch out for the jelly“ sh on that incoming tide. I talked with one of my neighbors and they went out Saturday morning and came back with their limit of scallops and he said they were all big. They have been “ ve times so far this season and have gotten their limit of 10 gallons each time. St. Joe, Keaton Beach and Steinhatchee also have plenty of scallops and I heard there are plenty at Lanark Village. I spoke to someone at the Lanark Boat Club in Lanark about the new store opening and he said it would be any day. They had hoped to open by the Fourth of July but you know how that goes. From what I could see when we stopped by there before the Fourth it looked like it was going to be a “ rst class operation. Food, gas, ice, bait and tackle and outdoor showers. Good parking and a good boat ramp right beside it. How can it not be successful? The Tallahassee Builders Association is having a “ shing tournament on July 30 and it will be hosted out of the Carrabelle Boat Club. This Saturday the seventh Annual Youth Fishing Tournament for kids younger than 16 will be held at C-Quarters Marina in Carrabelle. On Aug. 6 and 7 the eighth Annual Kingfish Shootout will also be held at C-Quarters with all proceeds going to The Leukemia Research Foundation. In the past seven years they have donated $600,000 to the foundation to help “ nd the cure for leukemia. On Aug. 27, the Kevins Fine Outdoor Gear and Apparel Sea Trout Shootout will be held. They will also be headquartered at C-Quarters. Capt. Randy Peart said “ shing at St. George hasnt changed much in the past week and is still very good. Lots of trout being caught on the ” ats and also on the beach. The white Gulp has been very good. Reds are being caught on the beach, in the cut and around the docks and oysters bars around the state park. A few Spanish are still around and a few blues and lady“ sh. Lots of kings are being caught offshore and Randy said there are tarpon everywhere including West Pass, East River and in the Apalachicola River. He had one tarpon trip last week and said they were everywhere but just wouldnt bite. Randy also said one of his friends had been doing extremely well down around the Aucilla and Econ“ na. He has been catching trout and reds in about two feet of water. On Monday I saw Allen Hobbs in Tallahassee and he had just returned from red “ shing at Grande Isle in Louisiana. He “ shed three days with some old customers from Alabama and said they caught reds up to nine pounds “ shing up against the grass in a foot and a half of water with mud minnows. He said last week he and a friend “ shed the West Flats out of St. Marks and caught six real nice trout using the new Penny Gulp under the Cajun Thunder. He said that same day Capt. Sid Stringer and John Fuller “ shed down east and got their limit of real nice trout “ shing in about four to six feet of water. I was at the convenience store on 98 the other morning and was telling Dale Evans with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce about the 17 ” ounder that I caught about two weeks ago. He proceeded to show me a picture on his phone of 24 ” ounder they had caught “ shing over at Lanark Village. He said they were caught around an oyster bar using mud minnows. Capt. David Fife and I fished on Saturday until the storm ran us in and we caught three ” ounder, three trout and two blues. When the “ sh started biting we had to come in. David was telling me one of the folks who “ shes out of Spring Creek caught a 36-inch red last week and a guy in a kayak caught a tarpon over in Spring Creek that he estimated at more than 100 pounds. August is getting close and usually the reds really start bunching up. Fishing continues to be good but watch out for the thunderstorms that build every afternoon. Remember to know your limits and leave that ” oat plan with someone. Good luck and good “ shing!Its such a big world, and Im so small. I say this partly because I just drove back to lovely Wakulla County from central New Jersey … a LONG drive! I also say it because Im often overwhelmed by the immense diversity and complexity of nature. All one has to do is tour Anne and Jack Rudloes Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea just to get a hint of multitudes of marine life, or drive through the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in the dead of winter, when the waterfowl are in, to realize the vastness of bird species. Ive always had a passing interest in insects … BIG water bugs, praying mantis, stag horn beetles and the like, but this last month in New Jersey has been a real eye opener for this guy. My longtime friend Patti has introduced me to a whole new world … mainly butter” ies. I also met another George who is hooked on dragon and damsel” ies, and after a day with him I went through a book Patti had on the dragon and damsel” ies of Florida, and discovered that in the Wakulla area alone we have roughly 80 species of dragon” ies with names like darner, clubtail, sanddragon, pond hawks, cruiser, skimmer, etc. Most are stunning to observe close with binoculars that will focus within just a few feet. The same goes for butter” ies and skippers, most viewed up close are mindblowing in their beauty, and when I also tallied up the butter” ies and skippers species in our region south of Tallahassee I came up with more than 100! My friend Patti and her friends Chris and Paula are really into butter” ies, and the two gals even raise them from eggs they “ nd. With their trained eyes they can watch these delicate creatures flitting around over a “ eld and if the winged beauty isnt nectaringŽ at some ” ower, it likely is a female laying an egg on a plant, and again with close-focusing binoculars they see the insect lower her abdomen to the host plant and deposit her egg(s). Many species are very selective, like a Monarch to milkweed plants. Then, by closely looking the leaf or leaves over with a magnifying glass, about 50 percent of the time, they “ nd the egg or eggs, depending on the species. Nearly daily Paula or Patti “ nd eggs, then put them in a plastic tub with the host plant, and in a few days these jewelsŽ as Patti calls them hatch. The Angel Wings like the Question Mark and Comma all have some what similar shaped eggs, often quite different shaped than say those of the Swallowtails. Some like the Pipevine Swallowtails lay clusters of reddish orange eggs, bright colors signifying they are toxic to potential predators. Others like our beautiful Zebra Swallowtail only lay one egg on the leaf of a Paw Paw tree, and their egg is translucent white. Many if not most eggs are the size of a period. Very small. There are tiny butter” ies called Hairstreaks with a wingspan of less than an inch. Can you imagine the size of their eggs? Still the gals “ nd them buried down the heart of a bunch of tiny leaves. Right now Patti has around 15 species that she is rearing, Paula even more. This is great, for most eggs if left on their host plant outdoors will be eaten by the many species of predatory insects patrolling plants for meals. The same with the caterpillars. Very few survive in the eat or be eaten world they live in. So by rearing them under controlled conditions Patti and Paula are giving them a much higher chance of living and actually becoming the real thing … an adult butter” y. But, as Patti often points out, knowing a species of butter” y/skipper is great, however, “ nding the female laying her egg(s), watching them hatch into tiny caterpillars and molt from one instar, into another is awesome. And, seeing them grow as they munch away on leaves provided for them, and then turn into a pupa or chrysalis is incredible, for the chrysalis are like works of sculptured art, left hanging on a twig for weeks or even months, while inside the caterpillar goes through its metamorphoses. Then the shell of the pupa turns clearer, and the butter” y can be seen ready to emerge. When it does, it can happen in minutes. This winged beauty splits the pupa shell and steps out, then using ” uids held in the abdomen it pumps up and expands the wings to become two or three times the length of the pupa it just emerged from. Incredible!Fishing is good and the scalloping is better every weekIn this big world, butter” ies (and their eggs) are small jewelsWakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTH Tues.

Duane and I ” ew out to California last Friday to help our family move across to Georgia. Hopefully by the time you read this, we will be in the “ nal stretch of driving back. We went to the beach before leaving to have one last look at the Paci“ c Ocean since we do not know how long it will be before we are back to see it again. It never ceases to amaze me how different things are in the west. At 7:30 in the morning when we were at the beach, you look out to see lots of specks ” oating. The surfers were enjoying great waves. Unless you go over to the east coast, the gulf waves look like ripples compared. Our “ rst stop is in Flagstaff, where we are going to detour a bit to see the Grand Canyon. Talk about feeling like a speck! Since we have been out of pocket most of the week, other than letting you all know Flotilla 12 had safety patrol out on the water Saturday; there is not much to tell. The patrol was uneventful, which in our book is a very good thing. Coxswain Tim Ashley had the crew work on some basic training and practicing their skills. I hope to have more to tell you about next week, but for now that is all. As Sherrie reminds us, Safe Boating is No Accident.

THE CABINET SHOPTHECABINET SHOP Custom Kitchens&Counter Tops Many people visit my shop and see we support cave as much as open water diving. Some shudder and say they could never adjust to the darkness of cave diving. In point of fact, cave divers see further and have more light than most open water divers around this region. How can that be? Our underwater (UW) caves are often clear and we carry lights so bright that to stare at the bulb when lit is like staring at the sun. Without a light, our caves whether dry or wet, are dark. Its probably better described as black, the absence of light. Our earliest training requires that we take students beyond the natural light zone and turn all ” ashlights off to reinforce the consequence of losing your light. Many people feel insecure and panic in such conditions. Exiting a dark cave is challenging, but possible using the cave line when underwater. Dry caves are more problematic since dry caves do not use the cave live technique. To be sure we have enough light, every cave diver carries three or more ” ashlights. Once I lost all three that I had with me. But I also am of the old school that always carries redundancy … a buddy loaned me one for my hasty exit. Back in the mid 21st century (1950s) folks who explored Wakulla Springs used surface-adapted ” ashlights, which proved to be unreliable as they often ” ooded and produced little light. It was however, better than no light. Dives back then were shorter and shallower than today. Batteries were bulkier and had less duration. Small motorcycle batteries were encapsulated with cables fed to automobile headlights that improved light coverage. The unintended consequence was that cave divers no longer required extra weight to off-set their buoyancy. My “ rst cave light in the early 1980s was made of two “ re alarm six-volt batteries contained in a clear plastic tube. A cable fed the electricity to a steel tube with a large re” ector that focused the halogen (car headlight bulb) into any size pattern I wanted. Lamar English and his dad built them in Tallahassee and were called the English light. We mounted the battery pack on one side of our waist and swam with a decided tilt to balance the load. As cylinders got bigger and heavier to permit longer and deeper dives, batteries got smaller and more powerful. Bulbs also changed from incandescent to halogen to gas vapor and recently to LED, each consuming less power and producing more light. I just fast forwarded only 30 years. Today our underwater torchŽ (as the Europeans call them) is the size of a small shoe and can last beyond “ ve hours with light so bright the cave passage becomes a stunning exhibit hall. Yes, we still carry three lights (a primary and two small secondary) since any light can fail, most often now because we forget to recharge them. Last week however, a vendor produced a light that was the size of a babys shoe that lit up the shop. He pointed out the technology has miniaturized to the point that our backup lights are often brighter than our primary light! Of course each step forward brings increases in cost. A primary light can cost in excess of $1,000. Fortunately cave divers invest heavily in their cave kit.Ž Between training, cylinders, manifolds, regulators, reels of cave line, specialized knives, buoyancy compensators, harnesses, scooters, dive computers, exposure suits, mask and “ ns (no snorkel) and of course dive lights, the cost exceeds $5,000 plus. Now add a SUV to haul this heavy stuff around and you can see these folks are dedicated to their sport. They can see very well in our UW caves. And we have what they want right here in Wakulla County!From FWC NewsFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission law enforcement of“ cers, as well as law enforcement officers from other agencies, are on the waterways checking boaters for safety equipment and enforcing safety regulations. During these checks, the boats of both the of“ cers and those being checked will be stopped in the water. Besides motorboats, of“ cers may stop kayaks, canoes, small fishing boats and other small vessels. We are asking boaters to be courteous, and dont rock the boat, when they see any vessel stopped in the water, or small boats like kayaks and canoes that are subject to being swamped,Ž said Maj. Paul Ouellette, the law enforcement commander of the FWCs Northeast Region. This means avoiding the area if possible or idling past the stopped or small vessels, so your boats wake doesnt cause property damage or personal injury to them,Ž he said. This can be a real problem in high-traf“ c areas when there are many boats and large wakes. In fact, many accidents are caused by wakes flooding smaller vessels. Sometimes the offending operator doesnt even know it and keeps going, leaving behind a sinking vessel. A boat operator is responsible for the damage his or her boats wake causes and can be cited for careless or reckless operation, Ouellette said.

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.

Corner of Rose St. and Winthrop Ave. Downtown Sopchoppy926-1010Order a baked good and drink and receive a complimentary copy of By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netA man accused of molesting a 14year-old boy will serve at least 10 years in prison after he pleaded no contest to charges of sexual battery on a minor. The man, Bruce Wager, 49, had befriended the boy and his family and had become a father “ gure to the boy. Testimony at the sentencing hearing, held Thursday, July 14, indicated that the underage boy had gone over to Wagers home with a six-pack of beer. Wager allowed him to drink it, and had some rum and Cokes himself. The boy became extremely drunk and apparently passed out … and Wager allegedly performed a sexual act on the boy. The boy was disturbed and, in the middle of the night on a bike with no brakes, rode his bicycle home where his single mother instantly recognized something was wrong with her son. Sheriffs deputies were called, and they subsequently interviewed Wager and got a DNA sample from him. One of the most damning bits of evidence against Wager was that DNA tests con“ rmed his saliva on the boys body. Wager told the court that he had been sexually molested as a boy, and said that he regretted and was remorseful for his actions that night … which he blamed on having had too much to drink. He begged the court for mercy, and note he was the primary caretaker for his 82-year-old mother. Defense attorney Lynn Alan Thompson sought to have the court find mitigating circumstances to go under the sentencing guidelines, proposing that Wager had cooperated with investigators in the case. It was an isolated incident, Thompson said, and his client showed remorse. Thompson asked the court to sentence Wager to probation, not prison, arguing that, since Wager would have to meet the restrictions of sexual offender laws like Jessica Lundsford and Jimmy Ryce, he will live in a virtual prison.Ž The defense also presented the testimony of Dr. Gregory Pritchard, a psychologist, who said that psycho-sexual risk assessments on Wager indicated he was a low risk to re-offend. The mother of the 14-year-old, though, asked the court to sentence Wager to a long prison term. Please, dont let this happen to another child in another family.Ž The 14-year-olds older brother also told the court in highly emotional testimony that Wager had also molested him, and recounted a night of drinking … he was 20 and underage at the time … and claimed that he went back to Wagers house and passed out. When he awoke the next day, he said, he was nude and smelled of lotion. Wager denied the account, saying the young man had gotten drunk and become sick and he had merely taken his clothes and washed them and cleaned him up. Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno, who prosecuted the case, asked the court to sentence Wager to 10 years in state prison followed by “ ve years sex offender probation. Vollrath-Bueno noted that Wagers own account of being molested as a boy of 10 or 11 made a case for leniency but, at the same time, since he knew the effect the abuse had on him as a child, it also made a case for punishment. Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls ordered Wager to serve 15 years in state prison, suspending the prison time after 10 years, with the remainder to be served on sex offender probation. Wager was also designated by the court as a sex offender, and was informed that he met the conditions for civil incarceration after prison. In other court cases: € A Crawfordville woman who was formerly the assistant to Sheriff David Harvey was sentenced to more than three years in state prison for violating her probation. Farah Ward, 34, was put on probation in November 2007 for numerous felony counts of prescription fraud for trying to obtain codeine. In April, she was charged with retail theft in Pasco County … which violated her probation both for a new law violation and for leaving Wakulla County without permission. At her violation of probation hearing on Wednesday, July 20, Judge Sauls ordered her to serve 38.7 months in prison for the violation. € Terry Wayne Smith, 37, was sentenced to 10 years in state prison on charges of traf“ cking in methamphetamine and possession of a “ rearm by a convicted felon when his plea was taken at a hearing on Wednesday, July 20. € Raymond Garrett, 40, was sentenced to three years in state prison for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon as well as a charge of tampering with a witness. According to the arrest report in the court “ le, in March 2010, Garrett got in an argument with a co-worker at the trucking company where he works. When the co-worker drove away, Garrett allegedly chased him down in his truck and attacked him with a shovel. A witness, who worked at another trucking company, later claimed that Garrett used his CB radio to make threats that he should have stayed out of his business. Garrett pleaded no contest to the charges on Wednesday, July 20, and as part of a plea agreement, agreed to serve 36 months in prison followed by three years of probation with credit for 184 days served. He must also pay $2,067 in court costs and “ nes in the battery case and $1,190 in the tampering case. Court shortsCase dropped against local businesswomanStaff reportThe state attorneys of“ ce “ led paperwork indicating it would not prosecute two employees of a Crawfordville gold-buying business. Sylvia Pritchard, 45, and Anthony J. Setzer, 34, had faced a misdemeanor charge of secondhand dealer violation at Gold Buyers of Crawfordville. On June 29, the state “ led a nolle prosecui in the cases, meaning it would not pursue prosecution, and explained, The defendant has provided proof that the actual owner of Gold Buyers had held the gold for the statutorily required period. While probable cause existed for the arrest based on the statements of the defendants at the scene,Ž the “ ling states, there is insufficient evidence to proceed because the statutory guidelines were being followed by the owner.Ž Pritchard and Setzer had been charged in May after detectives with the sheriffs of“ ce requested to see the inventory as a regular part of the departments burglary case investigations. Pritchard and Setzer reportedly told the detectives that the gold wasnt immediately available, but they would agree to meet with detectives at another time. Under state law, businesses such as Gold Buyers are required to hold items for a certain period of time. In April, detectives claimed the shop owners allegedly failed to maintain physical possession of secondhand goods for the required number of days and mailed jewelry to Jacksonville, and they were given a verbal warning. Pritchard has disputed the version of events given by the sheriffs of“ ce. Continued from Page 1A Ricks was angry about the feud between the families at the time of the funeral … when Bouchards sister presented a power of attorney that held up the funeral services for 12 days while it was sorted out, and then at the funeral services when all the cards with the ” owers were taken and replaced with love lettersŽ from Jessica to Marcus, written presumably by Bouchards friends. Ultimately, Ricks was forced to give a portion of her sons ashes to Bouchards sister. The wreck occurred on Sept. 17, 2010, on Highway 375 near Piney Creek Road north of Smith Creek in Wakulla County. The arrest report in the court “ le indicated that the pair had left a family members home and had been drinking heavily. Witnesses said that Marcus Kelley was driving the 2001 Chevrolet truck as they left, but that Bouchard took over because he was too drunk to drive, the report said. The truck left the highway four miles south of the Leon County line and struck a guardrail south of Piney Creek Road. Marcus Kelley was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle and died on the scene, according to the report in the “ le. Bouchard couldnt get a signal on her cell phone in the isolated area and ran down the road in an effort to “ nd a place where she could phone 911. Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno, who prosecuted the case, asked the court to sentence Bouchard to the maximum 15 years, noting that her blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit at the time of the wreck, in addition to having been arrested for disorderly conduct 20 days before the incident when she drunkenly destroyed her roommates house, and had been previously convicted of DUI in 2009. Defense attorney Steven Glazer asked the court to “ nd there were mitigating circumstances for a downward departure from the sentencing guidelines … for example, Bouchard suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of her childhood and had also been recently diagnosed with bi-polar disorder. But Judge Sauls found no basis for a downward departure and sentenced her to serve the mandatory minimum of 124 months … just over 10 years … in prison.Woman sentenced for crash that killed her husband

Dedicated to the rescue & rehabliltation of injured and orphaned wild mammals and birds By CAROLE TOLERreporter@thewakullanews.netNo, the Sassy Strippers are not a group of exotic dancers. They are a quilting group that meets every Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to make quilts for traumatized children. StrippingŽ is a term for a part of the quilting process, Kay Roberts explains. One of the women in the group calls herself The Sassy Lady, and these terms combined to create the name Sassy Strippers Quilters.Ž The Sassy Strippers make quilts that they put in bags, along with stuffed animals, to give to deputies to have in their cruisers when they come across children who need special care. Thanks to the Sassy Strippers, each local cruiser has two bags each, according to member Deanna Collins. The ladies also make lap quilts for Hospice and nursing homes, and catheter bag covers. They recently made a quilt for the Senior Center and for the Wakulla Pregnancy Center to raf” e off and raise money, Collins explains. Collins, along with a friend, is the one who started the Sassy Strippers Quilters. She was in a similar group in Franklin County, and when she moved to Wakulla two years ago, she wanted to start one up. So she found some likeminded people, and they began quilting. The group is now comprised of quite a few members, ranging in age from 11 to 70-something. Wynter Harvey is 13. I just saw my grandmother quilting,Ž she says. I thought it looked neat.Ž She went from quilting by herself to quilting with the group because, quilting alone is kind of boring.Ž She enjoys the atmosphere of group quilting. Other members, such as Roberts and Collins, began quilting at a young age. Collins explains that she grew up in Iowa, where you needed quilts to be warm.Ž Gay Waddell, however, did not begin quilting at a young age, but “ rst started when she joined the group about two years ago. She says that she picked it up and quickly made progress. Its fun,Ž Waddell says. Roberts showed off some of the recent quilts the group has made, such as one with a Bear Claw pattern and a paper piecing quilt that could be described as a Quilt-ByNumbers. Roberts says the best part of quilting with the Sassy Strippers is the camaraderie, the fun of creating with people. Sassy Strippers enjoy the camaraderie of quilting PHOTOS BY CAROLE TOLERMembers of Sassy Strippers Deanna Collins, Kay Roberts, Gay Waddell and Wynter Harvey show off a cruiser quilt they made to comfort children who need special care and are provided to local deputies to keep in their cruisers.

Merritt said, I think he has to have a vehicle to do his job.Ž The vehicle would only be allowed to be used to get to and from work and while Edwards is on the job. Hopefully he wont be sitting in his of“ ce,Ž Moore said. Commissioner Lynn Artz said she was concerned with Edwards starting salary given the countys “ nancial situation. Were taking an entry level administrator and giving him a raise,Ž Artz said. Edwards salary is the minimum of $75,300 plus 10 percent. Artz added that Interim County Administrator Tim Barden was doing the same job for the minimum amount. She suggested the commission give him the starting salary and have performance bonuses. For all the talk about cutting, cutting, cutting, this is inconsistent,Ž Artz said. Merritt said when the commission first started talking about hiring a county administrator, the commission said it wanted to increase the salary by 10 percent and he wanted to stick with that. Stewart said the commission set the maximum they would give at 10 percent more than the minimum. It gave us a range to work with,Ž Stewart said. He added that he agreed with Artz, but that Edwards had been cooperative in the process. He stood here tonight and took some more cuts,Ž Stewart said. He said he felt Edwards would do a good job. Hes going to hit the deck running,Ž Stewart said. The commission voted four to one, with Artz opposing, to approve the contract. Edwards has said in previous meetings that he is looking forward to this opportunity and is ready for the work ahead. Also at the meeting, Moore had an agenda item to hire Edwards prior to Oct. 1. In the item, Moore stated that Edwards could assist with the budget process and start addressing issues within the county. However, Moore decided to not pursue the issue after speaking with Edwards. In light of the “ nancial struggles of the county, Edwards said he didnt want employees to have to take more furloughs because of his early hire, Moore said. Edwards was the topranked candidate after months of searching for a new county administrator after the resignation of Ben Pingree in November 2010. More than 65 people applied for the position. Edwards lives in Sopchoppy and currently serves as a city commissioner, having been elected to the post last year. He has said he will step down from that position prior to his start as county administrator. Edwards has worked as a project manager for Allen Excavation since 2009. He oversaw the construction of the Sopchoppy sewer project for the company. His wife, Lara Edwards, will also have to step down from her position as assistant to the county administrator. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said Lara would no longer be able to hold that position once David takes his post, or any other position that falls under the supervision of the county administrator.Board approves Edwards contract


& W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 21, 2011 Section B During my internship at The Wakulla News this summer, both the low and the high points of my time here involved country singer Billy Dean. Billy Dean was the headliner for the From the Heart Music Hour concert held at the Monticello Opera House on July 9. I had the opportunity to interview him via telephone a few weeks before the show, which was pretty cool, but I didnt actually know who Billy Dean was. Continued on Page 3B From the Heart Music Hour plays to a packed house By TAMMIE BARFIELDtbar“ eld@thewakullanews.netLast weekends From the Heart Music Hour featured a line-up that was hard to beat this side of Nashville. Rick Ott and Nelle McCall, proprietors of From the Heart Recording Studio in Sopchoppy, continue to bring together mostly local talent for an Austin City LimitsŽ style show. The event was held Friday and Saturday nights, July 8 and 9, “ lmed on location at the Monticello Opera House in Monticello. This was the fourth recorded episode, a live music “ lm production for broadcast, which will be aired on WFSU-TV (Channel 11) at a future date. The level of talent and artistry the musicians demonstrated was nothing short of professional. Their enthusiasm to be on stage in little ol Monticello re” ected in the audiences applause, whistles, whoo-oohs and foot-stomping to the wide variety of performers and music performed. From the first performance each night beginning with Brian Bowen, to the “ nal performance on Saturday night with Quincys (now Nashvilles) Billy Dean, you couldnt help but want to hear more. The Monticello Opera House is a charmed venue for theatre and music performances. Every one of the aged, wooden seats has a great view of the stage.

We are fully aware of the imposition that this temporary change has caused you and are working to get back to our regular hours soon. After this article is printed there will be two more weeks left in our Summer Program. If the furlough program is still in place for WCPL after the Summer Program is over, the library will revert to the same furlough day schedule as the rest of the county of“ ces, being closed every Friday beginning the “ rst week in August. This means that we will again be open in the evening on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. Again, thank you for your patience and support of WCPL and please feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns. KATIE ADAMS RETURNS TO WCPL Join us on Thursday, July 21, as Katie Adams brings her own unique take on the Johnny Appleseed tale back to the library. Puppeteer and storyteller Adams weaves the story of Johnny Appleseed from the early days of the United States. Puppets crafted like old fashioned toys, a story quilt and traditional music are all part of the show. Each square of the story quilt is an episode in the life of the Tall Tale character of Johnny Appleseed, a man who followed his own unique dream and showed respect for all life. The show begins at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:45 p.m. FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE On Friday, July 22, we are showing an acclaimed animated “ lm starring the vocal talents of Johnny Depp, Neb Beatty and Isla Fisher. While as always our Public Showing License forbids me to name the “ lm here, I can tell you that this PG-rated “ lm is about an ordinary chameleon who accidentally winds up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost in the Wild West, in desperate need of a new sheriff. The chameleon named Rango has to decide whether to gather up his courage to help the people of Dirt or continue on his way back to the human family who cared for him. Join us at 7 p.m. for this “ lm, in which the children will love the kooky desert animals in the town, while mom and dad will get a kick out of the homage paid to westerns and classic Hollywood “ lms like Chinatown. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for the 7 p.m. showing and as always we ask that all children be accompanied by an adult. MAMA KOKU RETURNS The “ nal performance in our Summer Program of events is Mama Koku on Thursday, July 28, at 7 p.m. Koku is a master storyteller and childrens writer whose interactive stories and songs bring the crowd to life as they learn valuable lessons about the world around them. Shes one of our most popular performers who we try to have visit us every year due to popular demand. Please come out for all the fun! FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY The Friends of WCPL will be holding their monthly meeting at 6:00 on Thursday 7/28.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 21, 2011 – Page 3BContinued from Page 1B In preparation, I scoured the internet, reading bios and watching YouTube music videos and learning everything I possibly could about this celebrity … even learning from Wikipedia that he was the nephew of the famous Jimmy Dean. Yes, it was Wikipedia. But I double checked, and another website said the same thing. After going over all my notes, I prepared a list of questions for Billy Dean. At this point, I was very excited to be interviewing him, because after my research, I knew just how signi“ cant his career has been. During the interview, I went through each question and recorded Deans answers as methodically and comfortably as going grocery shopping and checking items off a list. I get to Ask Billy Dean about famous uncle Jimmy Deans in” uence on music careerŽ and proceed just as casually. But I am in for a surprise. Oh, thats a Wikipedia mistake,Ž Dean said, chuckling. There is no relation.Ž He was very gracious, and proceeded to explain how its a joke between him and Jimmy Dean, and somehow I heard everything he said and laughed along with him, even as that part of my stomach that feels humiliation just dropped, and I just wanted to hide in a hole, surrounded by darkness, buried in sand. No such luck. There are actually many more questions to cover, so I take a deep breath, put that short ordeal behind me, and “ nish the interview. It ended up being a great interview, as Billy Dean is a seasoned celebrity and knows how to talk about himself in a way that is interesting, and not at all obnoxious or boring. Even though that one moment was excruciatingly painful, the overall experience was not too bad, and I felt good about my story. The From the Heart concert was the highlight … when I got to go backstage to meet Billy Dean before the show. He was just sitting off to the side of the stage, chilling with his guitar, ready to go onstage. He shakes my hand and I explain that I wrote a recent article about him. He thanks me for doing my job. At the same time, Im wrestling with my new camera and trying to “ nd the ” ash and thinking, Oh my goodness, this is Billy Dean! This is so cool.Ž So I snap a picture, which is blurry. I go through my camera options, desperately searching for nightŽ mode, because its dark backstage. I cant even see Billy Deans face, which is probably good, because he might be rolling his eyes at me and thinking, What kind of a reporter cant take a photo on auto mode? … Oh, wait, one who goes on Wikipedia.Ž I finally find the right setting on the camera and manage to take a second shot. During this entire process, I kept looking for someone backstage who looked like they had nothing to do and could take a picture of me with Billy Dean … but no such luck. My only options are to go for a cellphone self-taken shot of This is me and the celebrity I just met!Ž or leave. Unable to shake my upbringing, and not wanting to be That Girl, I thank Billy Dean for his time, shake his hand and leave. So I have a photograph that I know I took of Billy Dean along with some VIP janitorial supplies. As long as I keep it on my camera forever it will be proof of my unique encounter, and one of the most exciting moments of my two month experience.Carole Toler was a summer intern at The Wakulla News.

Page 4B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 21, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 15 … In a number of not-so-surprising revelations this week, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. is too big, Panhandle business owners are frustrated over the pace of BP payments and Gov. Rick Scott remains unpopular, despite recent efforts to get his message out in a ” urry of radio interviews around the state. But even as Floridians continued to be unimpressed with Scott … they and the governor learned this week that policies the state has undertaken to reduce spending and pump up reserves are having a positive effect on the states creditworthiness. Standard & Poors this week upgraded its credit outlook for Florida, citing Republican belt tightening and the frugal budget Scott signed into law. While Scott and his GOP cohorts may not have much desire to borrow money … theyre preaching staying within our means, after all … it was still positive acknowledgement from an independent source that reducing spending has an upside. But with 10 percent of Florida residents still out of work and a governor focused almost entirely on that, Scott has had a hard time getting people to like him. Meanwhile, “ nancial disclosures “ led with the Florida Commission on Ethics show that despite tough economic times, many lawmakers remain millionaires, though some have been caught in the real estate downturn that leaves them, on paper at least, underwater just like many of their constituents. On the national level, Florida events continue to in” uence the agenda. The Congress this week took a vote to water down federal clean water standards that have stymied and enraged Florida businesses and environmental of“ cials. And following through on Florida efforts following a much-watched trial, at least 20 states have “ led versions of Caylees Law in response to the recent acquittal of an Orlando mother, Casey Anthony, in the death of her 2-year-old daughter. Also this week, lawmakers traveled the state to get input on upcoming efforts to redraw political boundaries, holding a series of public hearings in preparation for the once-a-decade redistricting effort made more contentious by the addition of two congressional seats and a pair of untested constitutional amendments aimed at reducing the political shenanigans inherent in the process. Panhandle business owners, meanwhile, continue to cry foul as they battle BP over payments they say are due them from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that on Friday marked the “ rst anniversary of the well being capped, after spewing 5 million barrels of oil into the Gulf. CITIZENS RANKS SWELLING, IS SELL-OFF AN OPTION? With the state-backed property insurer expected to eclipse 1.4 million policyholders within the next few weeks, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. Chairman Jim Malone gave a parting shot this week, saying the insurer should consider selling off a large chunk of its business to private interests to reduce its exposure while continuing to cover the states riskiest property. Critics questioned whether thered be any companies willing to take most of the policies Citizens wants to shed … because theyre still risky. Up to 900,000 Citizens policies are likely uninsurable in the private market because they cover older homes, mobile homes, and residences along the coast. But Malone estimated that the remaining policies could be marketed to some private entity because they involve billions of dollars in assets and a widely dispersed premium base, envisioning a return to Citizens roots as the true insurer of last resort. That has a value someplace in this open market,Ž Malone said. The state of Florida needs money and this could be turned into an asset that had a value that people were willing to purchase in the private sector.Ž Created as the insurer only for those who couldnt get policies from private companies, Citizens has gone beyond that role to become the largest property insurer in the state. Malone laid that development squarely at the feet of lawmakers who despite warnings from insurance experts lacked the political courage to make the tough call. After the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes, when Floridians were complaining about major increases in premiums, lawmakers decided to arti“ cially reduce rates, against the advice of actuaries. If the right decision had been made politically, lets say “ ve years agoƒ we wouldnt have this exposure,Ž Malone said. We could have (had) a huge event and everybody in this state could feel comfortable that resources were available to take care of the loss.Ž Malone made the comments at the second to last board of governors meeting before all board members are removed from of“ ce July 31. After Aug. 1 a new governing board will be seated. While Citizens sees its popularity soar, Floridas elected officials do not share such fortune. A Sunshine State News poll released Thursday shows former Gov. Charlie Crist as the only big-name politician in Florida with a favorable rating over 40 percent. The former governor has a 42 percent favorable rating, despite having quit the Republican Party in an near the end of his term … angering many GOP faithful. Crists approval rating is higher than that of Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, who has a 38 percent favorable rating, Democrat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who has only a 32 percent approval rating, and Gov. Rick Scott, whose favorable rating is 27 percent, according to the poll conducted July 5-7 by Voter Survey Service. MANY FLORIDA LAWMAKERS DOING ALL RIGHT The Florida Legislature is home to more than 50 millionaires, according to a News Service review of “ nancial disclosures “ led by legislators for 2010. The 160-member Legislature tends to attract wealthy individuals due, in part, to its heavy time commitment and low salary. Legislators receive $29,697 a year, with presiding officers making $41,181 a year. The Legislature meets once a year for two months for its regular session, but lawmakers are often called in for committee weeks or special sessions … and they also have to spend a lot of time campaigning and fundraising. Its a dif“ cult position if you are working a 9-to-5 job to say, Hey, Im going to give up my clients for four months, and then come back to that world for six months,Ž said Rep. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, one of the wealthiest legislators, who is worth $11.8 million. Most people cant do that.Ž Freshman Rep. Matt Caldwell, R-Lehigh Acres, has the distinction of having the lowest net worth in the Legislature. Caldwell, 29, is a real estate appraiser who purchased his home at the height of the housing boom. He watched as the value of his $144,000 investment shrank to about $25,000 as hard-hit Lehigh Acres became the epicenter of the national housing bust. I tell people Im nothing special, Ive experienced the same types of challenges that many other people have gone through,Ž said Caldwell, whose net worth as of Dec. 31 was negative $125,000. Floridas part-time legislators next year must redraw their district boundaries, and those of Congress, and lawmakers are beginning to come face-to-face with restrictions imposed by recently approved constitutional amendments aimed at reducing gerrymandering. During hearings held this week at The Villages, residents worried publicly that Amendment 5 and 6 will make it dif“ cult for the sprawling development that straddles county boundaries to be represented by a single representative. The Villages has ballooned since the early 2000s, growing from an octogenarian outpost of 22,000 to a teeming community of 84,000 that will continue to grow by 25,000 by 2020. Concerns by Villages residents have been echoed by others, but lawmakers said their ability to match the requests could be made problematic under the Fair Districts amendments overwhelmingly approved by voters last November. Also this week, Rep. Bill Proctor, R-St. Augustine, said Florida needs to accelerate tuition increases at a few of the states 11 public universities. Proctor, who chairs the House Education Committee and is Chancellor of Flagler College, said in an interview with the News Service of Florida that shrinking state revenues have made universities rely more heavily on tuition dollars. But with a 15 percent annual cap on how much tuition can go up, universities are “ nding it hard to get close to the national average. WATER WAR CONTINUES The U.S. House on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a bill that would restrict the Environmental Protection Agencys power to require tougher waterquality standards. U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Florida, was a key sponsor of the measure, which passed 239-184. Mica and other supporters said the EPA has overstepped its authority in Clean Water Act disputes with states. The Obama administration has signaled the bill likely will be vetoed if it gets to the White House. Water-quality standards have been a ma-jor issue in Florida during the past couple of years, as business groups and many state and local leaders have fought EPA efforts to impose strict standards through what are known as numeric nutrient criteria. Opponents contend that the criteria would force costly upgrades of facilities such as sewage-treatment plants, which discharge water into rivers and streams. But supporters say the standards would help clean up the states waterways, preventing harmful algal blooms and other health and environmental problems. STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov. Rick Scott continues to be plagued by low approval ratings … lower even than the former governor who was disgraced in the eyes of his own party just a year ago … even as he got the news that the states efforts to reduce spending are music to the ears of outside analysts. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Oh, thats good. That is great.Ž Gov. Rick Scott reacting to Standard & Poors upgrading the states credit outlook at the end of a 24-hour cycle during which the other major Tallahassee story was about how unpopular he has become.WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Scott gets good news, but hes still less popularNews Service of FloridaA federal judge in Gainesville has ordered Dixie County to remove a six-ton granite monument of the Ten Commandments and directing viewers to Love God and Keep His Commandments,Ž from the front of the countys courthouse in Cross City. The Dixie County Commission gave the OK for the monument in 2006, and the ACLU of Florida sued. On Friday, U.S. District Judge Maurice Paul ruled against the county and ordered the monument removed. The ACLU had argued the monument represented government speech, violating constitutional prohibition against government promotion of religion. Dixie County had argued that it was merely providing a forum for a local citizen who made the monument … and continues to own it … to express his religious beliefs, and that the monument was therefore protected by the First Amendment. The monument is “ vefeet tall, made of six tons of granite, and sits alone at the center of the top of the steps in front of the county courthouse that houses every signi“ cant local government of“ ce,Ž Pauls opinion noted. And, citing a previous precedent-setting case, Paul found that by putting it there, the county was sending an unmistakable message that it supports and promotes the religious message that appears on it.Ž Howard Simon, state director of the ACLU, said the right place for the monument is at a church.

By RITA SKEETERSpecial to The NewsPottermania came to Tallahassee this past Thursday evening as witches, wizards and muggles alike turned out in record numbers for the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, the “ nal installment of the series of “ lms based upon the wildly popular books written by J. K. Rowling. A group of 18 Potter fans from Wakulla County attended the premiere, dressed as many of the colorful characters from the Harry Potter series of books. After attending a pre-premiereŽ party held at the home of Sharon Kerce in Wakulla, the group arrived at the AMC cinema complex to “ nd a line of waiting moviegoers that stretched all the way into the parking lot. As the group entered the building, they were greeted with applause from the waiting crowd, and received many compliments on their creative costumes. When the group reached the lobby area, they were allowed in ahead of the crowd as they had cleverly thought to purchase their tickets ahead of time. Once inside, they were joined by a large congregation of fans dressed in costume, all excited to be in the company of so many others who shared the common interest of Harry Potter. The Wakulla assembly, a mix of young adults and parents, turned out to be crowd favorites, as everyone clamored to have their photos taken with them. The popular group mingled with the other fans in costume, taking pictures and sharing conversation about their favorite Harry Potter moments from both the books and the movies. Among the other fans in attendance was a young man dressed as Professor Albus Dumbledore, one of the main characters from the series, whose long white beard was ingeniously crafted out of dental ” oss. Another fan, dressed as the notorious Bellatrix Lestrange, revealed that she had created the bodice of her out“ t out of duct tape. Every theater in the complex was simultaneously showing the movie, and our illustrious Wakulla fans were among those lucky enough to be seated in one of the IMAX theaters, where the movie could be viewed in all its 3D glory. Even though the group had arrived early, the only seats left were in the front two rows, which was just “ ne with this hardcore group of fans, who were once again greeted with applause as they entered the theater to take their seats. At the end of the movie, shouts of Mischief Managed!Ž … a popular quote from the Harry Potter books … could be heard throughout the theater as many die-hard fans raised their wands in a “ nal salute to the boy who lived.Ž There were snif” es and looks of disbelief on the faces of movie patrons as they reluctantly made their way out of the cinema, realizing that the battle between good and evil was “ nally decided, and the magic of“ cially over. Another long line of movie-goers, patiently waiting for the 3:15 a.m. showing to begin, greeted the group as they made their way out of the building. The Wakulla gang gave the movie two thumbs up,Ž saying it met all their expectations and more. All in all, it was a mystical, magical night for this group of Potter fans, and the perfect sendoff for the characters they have literally grown up with and grown to love over the past decade. Rita Skeeter is the pen name, for this story at least, of Mary Katherine Westmark.

When the musicians gazed out over the audience, you could see their eyes and facial expressions. Occasionally, they would offer a nod of approval as the audience participated in every song. There was focus on the opera house itself, with Mimi Hearn and Billy Dean both commenting on how unique the theatre is and what a privilege and opportunity it is for the community to have such an amazing place to enjoy the arts. Billy Dean compared the theatre to one of the Grand Ole Oprys most enduring homes, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. He assured the audience, though, that the seats in Monticello were much more comfortable than those at the Ryman. If you missed the live performances, the recorded version will be well worth your while.
