By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County School Board voted without dissent to go forward with proposed millage levies at a public hearing this week. No citizens attended the hearing, which was held Monday, Aug. 1. The school board budget and tax levy typically draws very little citizen interest. Several years ago, as real estate speculation fueled skyrocketing property values especially along the coast, a number of citizens attended a budget hearing to question the increase in taxes. This year, not only are property values down, but the increase in taxes is miniscule … at 8.55 mills, its .011 mills higher than last year. Superintendent of Schools David Miller noted that, on taxable property valued at $100,000, the increase amounts to $1.10 for school board taxes. Continued on Page 3A By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netIn the near future, residents could see their garbage and recyclables picked up once a week by Waste Pro. At the Aug. 1 County Commission meeting, the commission voted 3-2, with Commissioners Randy Merritt and Jerry Moore opposing, to approve the bid by Waste Pro to be the solid waste franchise hauler for the county and to negotiate a contract. The commission was deciding between two options for managing solid waste, charging a $112 assessment which would allow for no tipping fees, necessary closure of the land“ ll and upgrades to the transfer station; or charging a $196 assessment that includes weekly garbage pickup for every resident and closure of the land“ ll. We have a mandated choice,Ž Commissioner Alan Brock said. Brock has been a driving force behind countywide garbage pickup. The reason for the assessment was because improvements are needed at the transfer station to bring it into compliance with the Department of Environmental Protection. The county could incur expensive “ nes or be mandated to upgrade the facility by the state if it doesnt do something, according to the commission. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said the county continues to lose money in the solid waste business. It hasnt been an enterprise fund for a long time,Ž Fleming said. Prior to this meeting, it seemed the commission was leaning towards the $112 assessment. However, Commissioner Mike Stewart changed his opinion and felt the garbage collection was the best option. The $112 option is just a band-aid,Ž Stewart said. Stewart said the bids received were much lower than he anticipated and this option could actually save some people money. When I explained it to the public, the light came on,Ž Stewart said.

King was also charged with grand theft of livestock and cruelty to animals in connection with shooting a pot-bellied pig named Spam,Ž a 12-year-old family pet that wondered onto his property. The WCSO Narcotics Unit conducted an undercover purchase of prescription pills involving King. A search warrant was served at the Apocalyptic Tattoo Studio in Panacea on Aug. 1. No pills were discovered in the establishment at the time of the service of the search warrant. However, a handgun and shotgun were seized from the location. A bag of yellow powder is currently being tested for controlled substances. In addition, on July 28, the pot-bellied pig was being cared for by a friend of the owner who reported hearing a gunshot. Later, the owner discovered that King had shot the animal, dressed it out and consumed part of the pet. During the service of the search warrant, King admitted to shooting the pig and six plastic bags of pork parts were recovered from a freezer at the studio. The .32-caliber handgun used to shoot SpamŽ was recovered. The pig was valued at $350. King was transported to the Wakulla County Jail without incident. He is being held in jail on a $200,000 bond.

Ray Gray faces disciplinary actionBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netParks and Recreation Director Ray Gray is in the hot seat and facing disciplinary action. Gray was written up for insubordination by Interim County Administrator Tim Barden on July 21. Barden said it is a pending personnel issue. In a memo by Barden, he states that there is concern over Grays performance of his duties as parks and recreation director. Barden listed three issues, lack of accessibility/management oversight, sheriff contract for mowing and outside employment. According to the memo, a meeting was scheduled for July 21 between Barden, Human Resources Director Debbie DuBose and Gray and Gray did not attend the meeting.Continued on Page 3A By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netMore than 20 centuries ago, Aristotle described the octopus as a stupid creature, for it will approach a mans hand if it be lowered in the water.Ž Today, that is considered curiosity. In fact, many believe that the octopus is quite intelligent. One of those people is Chris Capeless, who has a doctorate and is trained in animal psychology. Capeless, along with Gulf Specimen Marine Lab and its founder and president Jack Rudloe, is engaging in a unique experiment to study the behavior of the octopus. A lot is know about the anatomy of the octopus, but not its behavior, Capeless says. Its still a mystery,Ž Capeless says. Capeless used to visit Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea often when his children were young. Recently, his wife, who is a wildlife photographer, had never been and decided she wanted to go. During their visit, Capeless met Rudloe and they began talking about their fascination with the octopus and the desire to learn more about them. From there, the two decided to work together and Rudloe agreed to let Capeless use the lab to conduct his study. I have long been interested in octopuses and have observed fantastic behavior and intelligence on their part and want to know more about them,Ž Rudloe says. Im very fortunate Gulf Specimen is giving me the opportunity to do this,Ž Capeless says. This is one of the few places in world this can take place.Ž Capeless has always been intrigued by the octopus and says its brain is set up much differently than a humans and other animals.

He adds that octopuses are able to learn and problem solve and are extremely curious. They will investigate everything,Ž Capeless says. He adds that the octopus is very aware of its surroundings and watches him as he moves about, near the tank. They are as clever as they come,Ž Capeless says. Capeless has worked with all types of animals and compared an octopus intelligence to that of a monkey, even though the monkeys brain is 50 times bigger and more complicated. The octopus can change the color of its entire body extremely fast because of color cells on their skin called chromatophores. They can do anything,Ž Capeless says. The color changing seems to be tied to their emotions, like they are doing some kind of mental work, Capeless says. Their thoughts are re” ective on their skin,Ž Capeless says. Capeless approaches the tank holding a small treat for the creature. In an instant, it has a small amount of brown around its eye. Then, within a few seconds, its entire body has changed to that brown shade. Its tantalizing,Ž Capeless says. Once it has eaten its snack, the octopus changes back to its original color, but still seems curious as it ” oats towards the top of the tank. This octopus is one of three Capeless is performing experiments on. The experiments deal with the senses, seeing what sounds and tastes the octopus likes and dislikes. He has been conducting experiments for a month and believes the process will take a couple years to make a determination about its behavior and will have to study numerous octopuses. We need lots of animals to work with,Ž Capeless says. One question Capeless is trying to answer is whether or not an octopus can hear, he says it seems that they can because the octopus reacts and seems to be sensitive to vibrations in the water. However, it is not know how they hear since they do not have ears. It could be by touch or internally, like the vestibular system we have, he says. With taste, Capeless says, people do not known what octopus like, so he is trying to “ gure out their feeding behavior. In this experiment, he has two PVC pipes that extend into the water and sit at the bottom of the tank. In one pipe, he releases salt water and in the other, he puts a chemical liquid. When the liquid is released in the water, it creates a cloud and the octopus swims through the cloud and it either responds or not. Capeless says they are trying all types of different substances that would serve as signals to a type of food, such as a mollusk or crustacean. Its a needle in a haystack,Ž Capeless says. The lab and Capeless are also working on building a rig of eight tanks to house octopus for the study. Currently, the lab does not have the accommodations needed for the study. One large tank is needed for one octopus. Capeless says they are working on the design, which will connect all the tanks together like a maze. They hope to have it completed as soon as possible. Then the next step will be acquiring the octopus to live there. During the summer, octopus move to colder water, which is a bit of a problem because it makes them harder to “ nd. And octopus only live to be about a year old. Rudloe says the lab is accepting donations of live octopuses for the research. We are going to need all we can get this coming year,Ž Rudloe says. Fishermen can keep them alive by changing water, and keeping the container tightly covered so they cant crawl out and escape, which happens often.Ž Although the short life means work must be done quickly, there is also a positive. Capeless says it allows them to see the development of the brain and what happens to it as the octopus ages. The brain literally falls apart when they get old,Ž Capeless says. The study of the octopus brain could be helpful in dealing with Alzheimers disease, Capeless says. Studying the octopus as a possible model for arti“ cial intelligence is where he hopes to eventually take the study. Were just scratching the surface,Ž Capeless says. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee met for the second time and the main focus of the meeting held on July 28 centered around usage at buildings under the Board of County Commissioners. Dan Ard, with Talquin Electric, acquired data from the county to determine an average kilowatt usage per square foot. According to Ard, anything more than 1 kilowatt per square foot is a red ” ag. Ard said this data makes it easier to see the buildings that are the biggest consumers. It seems like all the volunteer “ re departments had high usage,Ž Ard said. And until an audit is done and the building scoped out, Ard said he could not say why the usage was so high. Once the biggest consumers are identified, energy audits can be done on the building to determine what the culprit is, Ard added. In going through the data, Ard and several other committee members said it is possible the numbers could be off, because of miscalculations or space included that is not conditioned, meaning it does not have air conditioning or heat. County Commissioner Lynn Artz suggested the “ re departments measure the conditioned space of their buildings to make sure the square footage is accurate. There was also some confusion over some of the buildings on the list … which was compiled by the countys maintenance department prior to the committee forming … and apparently duplicate buildings listed. Committee member Elinor Elfner said this needed to be untangled. Committee member Tom Harrington suggested splitting the buildings among the committee members and having each person go to the building, measure the conditioned space, take pictures and make notes about the structure. You dont have to be an expert,Ž Harrington said. Harrington said there was a need for a facility by facility approach and to think of each building as a piece of equipment and the kind of maintenance it may need. The committee decided to draft a check list that each member and volunteer “ re departments could use to evaluate each building. Then a comprehensive list would be compiled and Ard would determine the usage again based on the new measurements. Ard said he would be able to provide a more realistic report if given concrete information. Once audits are done, the committee would then look at putting in place certain recommendations for energy conservation, and stressed the need for each idea to have a return on investment for the county. Ard agreed and said, Its foolish to spend money you arent getting back in “ ve years.Ž The committee also had representatives from the other power company provider, Progress Energy. Robert Clark suggested looking at the AC units in each building, because those that are older can be big culprits of high energy usage. He also suggested limiting use of hot water. At the last committee meeting, it was determined that the county did not have a maintenance policy or criteria for equipment. These guys are at the whim or whoever calls first,Ž Ard said. Ard said not having a timeline of when an air “ lters should be changed is a red ” ag. The committee decided it would come up with procedures and policies for maintenance and present it to the county commission. The next committee meeting will be held on Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. At that meeting, Progress Energy will be presenting a report and review of their accounts.Committee looks at saving money in county buildings e Energy Conservation Committee is investigating energy usage and planning energy audits in order to give some recommendations to the county that could result in some cost savings.

According to Gray, he put in for medical leave on July 20 and has not been working since that following morning, July 21. Gray said he knew nothing about the meeting or the memo. Im totally unfamiliar with it,Ž Gray said. I havent had the courtesy of being informed.Ž He wondered how a meeting could be scheduled if he was on leave and said was told it was irrelevant. According to the memo, Barden said he had been trying to meet with Gray for nine months about these issues and a meeting was scheduled for July 21 and that Gray refused to meet without a volunteer of his present. The memo states that the lack of accessibility has been expressed by Barden, staff, commissioners and the public, and that Gray does not maintain of“ ce hours and prior to his county self phone being taken away, the voicemail box was constantly full. Barden said when he has visited the parks and recreation of“ ce in the last six months, there was only support staff in the of“ ce. Barden stated, To me this exhibits a clear lack of administrative oversight as well as inaccessibility to the public and other staff.Ž In relation to the sheriffs contract for moving, Barden said he has requested that the contract be formalized including an updated list of mow sites. The current contract was drafted by Gray and Sheriff David Harvey, according to Barden, and several of the sites being mowed are private property, including Mineral Springs and Sulphur Hole. Barden stated that the lack of inaccessibility and mowing contract are direct insubordination and a management plan will be drafted that includes increased of“ ce hours, improved email and responsiveness by management, improved planning of staff work for ef“ ciency, regular staff meetings and daily or weekly meetings with the administrator. Barden also listed an issue with Grays outside employment. According to Bardens memo and one submitted by former Public Services Director Doug Jones on May 29, 2010, in March 2010, Gray submitted outside employment request forms for Gray Services I Inc., Ray and Jody Gray, Wakulla County School Board, Amazing Tropical Interiors and Title Loan Services Inc. In Jones memo, Jones recommended approval of the school board job, Ray and Jody Gray and Tropical Interiors. In Jones memo, he states, Both of these enterprises can be conducted in the evening and on weekends and to the best of my knowledge do not conflict with duties and responsibilities of Mr. Gray in his position as Director of Parks and Recreation.Ž However, Jones also states in his memo that according to personnel policy, outside employment is allowed to supplement his or her income, and the only one where Gray earns less that his job as director is his position with the school board. According to Barden, he was told of the outside employment by former County Administrator Ben Pingree in November 2010 before he resigned. Since then, Barden has requested Gray to provide documentation of how he was providing 40 hours to the county. According to emails between Barden and Gray, Gray said he works 50 hours a week for parks and recreation and is able to do so because he owns the companies referred to and has staff and managers who run those companies. In Bardens memo, he said he wanted documentation verifying this. At the end of Bardens memo, he states that Gray has three options dealing with his outside employment. He can disengage himself from all other jobs besides school board and parks and rec, resign his position with the county or be terminated. When speaking with Barden, he said the issue was pending and would not discuss it further. Commissioner Mike Stewart was aware of the situation and said it was a personnel issue that has been going on for a while. I cant say what will happen,Ž Stewart said. Gray said he did not know how long his medical leave was going to last and wasnt sure what he was going to do. Ive never had to deal with anything like this before,Ž Gray said.Rec director Ray Gray faces disciplinary actionQuestions are raised about Grays performance of his job … his accessibility, the contract for mowing and his outside employment. Gray said that, since hes been on leave, hes unaware of the allegations.Continued from Page 1A The school board set the final public hearing on the budget for Sept. 12 at 6 p.m. In a related budget matter, the school board approved a spending resolution to be able to spend $390,000 in restricted categorical monies. The money was an accumulation of money that could only be spent for Supplemental Academic Instruction, and the school board approved its use to meet class-size requirements. Using the nearly $400,000 will help in this years tight budget. The caveat,Ž said Randy Beech, the districts finance of“ cer, is this is a one-time shot.Ž The school board met at its usual time of 5:45 p.m. and took up some agenda items before the budget hearing, which was advertised to start at 6 p.m. After they dispatched those agenda items pretty quickly, Chairman Mike Scott announced a seven or eight minute pauseŽ to begin the budget hearing at 6 p.m. Besides four staff members and a reporter, only four school board members and Superintendent Miller were at the meeting. Besides Scott, school board members Becky Cook, Ray Gray and Greg Thomas attended. Member Jerry Evans was absent.School board budget hearingBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe county is getting closer to adopting its upcoming budget which includes a decrease of 12.4 percent from this year. The total budget of $44,317,621 includes a millage rate of 8.75, the same as this year. The desire by the board to not increase the millage rate leaves a de“ cit of $971,278 because of a 10 percent property tax reduction. In order to account for the loss, there is no growth included in the proposed budget, as well as no employee raises, a decrease in ” ex plan funding, the elimination of 10.5 board of county commissioner staff positions, elimination of seven positions within the sheriffs office, decrease in EMS staff and overtime and budget cuts. Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said there are no furloughs included in the proposed budget or elimination of programs. According to Barden, the board has cut 5.6 percent, the sheriffs of“ ce has cut 5.39 percent, tax collector has cut 3.7 percent, clerks budget has reduced by 6.8 percent and the property appraiser has decreased its budget by 4.8 percent. The proposed budget for the supervisor of elections has increased by 2 percent because of the upcoming elections in 2012. In addition to making cuts, the county has also increased the Communications Service Tax from 1.82 to 5.22 percent, which will generate $593,444 a year. They also implemented a new Public Service Tax of 10 percent, which applies to the purchase of electricity, metered or bottled gas, fuel oils and water. This will generate $1,622,089 each year. The commission is also looking at charging a solid waste assessment of $196, which would include garbage and recycle pickup for every resident, as well as increasing the “ re MSBU from $61 per household to $75. The “ nal budget workshop is scheduled for Aug. 4 at 5 p.m. Two public hearings on the budget will be held Sept. 6 and 19. The next “ scal year starts Oct. 1.Countys budget down, millage to stay at 8.75By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA request for an inquiry into a possible Sunshine Law violation by a county commissioner has been submitted to the state attorneys of“ ce. Resident Hugh Taylor believes Commissioner Mike Stewart violated Sunshine Law when he met with future County Administrator David Edwards to discuss the terms of his contract. Taylor said that Stewart was directed by the commission to negotiate a contract with Edwards at the June 21 meeting. Following that meeting, Taylor said he spoke with the First Amendment Foundation and then requested the negotiations to be made public and to attend the meeting, but was told that he could not. I just wanted to go and view the meeting,Ž Taylor said. Taylor said he was told by the First Amendment Foundation to refer to page 20 and 21 of the Government In The Sunshine Manual,Ž which discusses delegation of authority and says that the law does not provide for any government by delegation exception. He added that Stewart was charged with negotiating with Edwards from the get go and Taylor said he has let that slide before. No more sliding,Ž Taylor said. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said the meeting was not required to be in the sunshine because Stewart was fact “ nding and was not delegated any decision-making authority. Although Taylor said he respects Encinosas opinion, he also realizes she represents the county commission. She has clients she has to defend,Ž Taylor said. Stewart said he conferred with Encinosa and didnt meet with Edwards without her present. I didnt negotiate anything,Ž Stewart said. I know Ive done the right thing.Ž Stewart said he brought back Edwards desires to the board at the July 18 meeting and the board did not agree to some of those desires. According to the First Amendment Foundation Director Jim Rhea, although there is an exception to the Sunshine Law for fact “ nding, it is rather narrow. If there is winnowing or narrowing of options that are available for consideration by the decisionmaking collegial body, that would be broader that mere fact-finding,Ž Rhea said. Fact-“ nding is “ nding facts not limiting options.Ž Taylor said he felt it was clear at the July 18 meeting that things were negotiated prior and would never be convinced it didnt take place. It is of concern,Ž Taylor said. Taylor presented this information to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce to investigate for a possible violation of the Florida Sunshine Law. The WCSO forwarded it to the state attorneys of“ ce, which will review it. I dont know what will come of it,Ž Taylor said. Sometimes all you can do is let a judge decide or a third party decide.ŽInvestigation sought into possible Sunshine Law violation by county Citizen Hugh Taylor claims that Chairman Mike Stewart may have violated the Sunshine Law by not giving the public access to his meeting with new county administrator David Edwards to discuss his contract. Directed by county commissioners to meet with Edwards, below, to discuss a contract to hire him as county administrator, Chairman Mike Stewart, above, says he believes he did nothing wrong. County Attorney Heather Encinosa was at the meetings and says they were fact-“ nding, and that the board had not delegated any decisionmaking authority to the chairman.

During a recent lecture about seagrass beds at the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea, Anne Rudloe spoke to a group of interested locals along with entry-level marine biology students from the University of Georgia. She identi“ ed the types of seagrasses found in this area as well as the sea life that depend and ” ourish in those grassy areas. Rudloe said seagrasses around our coastal area include manatee grass, shoal grass, turtle grass, star grass, and widgeon grass, all of which provide habitat for a host of sea animals. Sea horses are common in seagrass beds around the Wakulla County coast. Scallops live as adults in seagrass beds. Pink shrimp are probably the most valuable seafood harvested in the gulf and use seagrass beds as a nursery habitat. Manatees are also major grazers of seagrass beds. Seagrass beds provide nursery habitats for groups of sea life. Seagrass beds attract wildlife and act as a feeding ground for different types of sea animals. Seagrass beds improve water quality and stabilize the sea bottom. Seagrass beds contribute to the sediment health of nearby habitats and offer shelter for small sea creatures. Seagrass beds are very sensitive areas and serve as a water quality and clarity indicator. Rudloe said DEP conducts annual monitoring of fixed sites along the Big Bend Aquatic Seagrasses Preserve, which stretches from the mouth of the St. Marks River down to Yankeetown. Those same seagrasses I grew to love as a child are part of the largest aquatic preserve and one of the most pristine places in Florida, the Big Bend Aquatic Seagrasses Preserve. The preserve provides habitat to a variety of sea and shore birds including a large nesting colony of frigate birds on Seahorse Key in the Cedar Key area. The preserve supports a very important commercial shell“ sh industry which includes oysters, pink shrimp, blue crabs, stone crabs and Cedar Key clams. The area is also a popular scallop season destination and is home to a wide variety of fish attracting commercial and sports “ shermen. The Big Bend Aquatic Seagrasses Preserve was established in 1985 and consists of 984,000 acres of sovereign submerged lands, except for one area that remains unshaded indicating it is not part of the preserve. That unshaded area was excluded from the preserve because the water there did not meet the water quality standards required for aquatic preserve designation. That area is the area around the mouth of the Fenholloway River. Theres a lot of history there. In 1947, the Fenholloway was designated as Floridas only Class 5 industrial river and became the dumping ground for the Perry pulp mills waste. State and plant of“ cials have since been working to improve the water quality of the Fenholloway. In 1993, the plant changed ownership and the improvements have been notable. In 2003, the river was designated as Class 3, suitable for recreation and propagation and maintenance of a healthy balance of “ sh and wildlife. Pretty impressive, even applaudable. But lets face it, Floridas pristine coastline and all that depend on it is constantly under attack, hastening erosional and environmental degradation. If its not hurricanes and tropical storms pounding away at the shoreline and wreaking havoc on the seagrasses, its the BP oil spill, or 40 percent of the nations runoff ” ooding down the Mississippi River into the gulf sending plumes of sludge into the Gulfstream threatening our reefs and sea life, or its pulp mills using our gulf as a dumping ground. The Florida DEP Big Bend Seagrasses Aquatic Preserve website features this quote by Gary Ellis of the Gulf Archeological Research Institute: The Big Bend Seagrasses Aquatic Preserve epitomizes the Florida estuarine system; a natural dynamic system that has supported indigenous Floridians for millennia and continues today. These ecological systems provide the best opportunity to study the coastal strand and should continue to be the focus of our best conservation and protection efforts.Ž ...Our best conservation and protection efforts.Ž There has got to be a better way.Tammie Bar“ eld is general manager of The Wakulla News. ere has to be a better way to protect valuable seagrasses But lets face it, Floridas pristine coastline and all that depend on it is constantly under attack, hastening erosional and environmental degradation.TOURIST DEVELOPMENT CONTROVERSY:TDC is a tool to promote local tourismEditor, The News: I feel much of the information printed thus far in the Comments & Opinion section of The Wakulla News has been purposely misleading, distorted, and biased. The tourist tax is authorized by state statutes and added to room rates at hotels, motels, campgrounds and vacation rental houses everywhere in Florida. So, visitors to the area pay the tax, not local residents. The state of Florida authorizes each county to levy a tourist tax varying from a minimum of 2 percent to a maximum of 6 percent. In Florida seven counties levy no tourist tax; 14 counties levy 2 percent; 11 counties levy 3 percent; and 35 counties levy 4 percent or more. Wakulla currently is at the 2 percent levy and Leon County is one of the counties with 5 percent. Im traveling to Minneapolis next week and the tourist tax they charge is 11 percent. If a county chooses to levy the tax, its countys governing body establishes and appoints members to a nine-person Tourist Development Council, which develops a tourist development plan and oversees the allocation of funds. The Wonders of Wakulla,Ž a comprehensive marketing plan, was developed with public input in roundtable meetings and approved by the TDC Board. By law, the members of council represent lodging, elected of“ cials and touristrelated endeavors. This is the representation on the TDC board. In May, the TDC submitted a request to gradually increase the tax to 4 percent. The request document states, Due to limited number of beds,Ž this levy (of 2 percent) only produces $40,000 in annual revenues. Compare this to our neighbor, Franklin County, whose levy is also 2 percent, but produces more than $700,000. The request document also provides a general list of promotional activities for which the tax will be used, including promotional maps and videos, social marketing efforts, participation in travel shows, and the continuance of effective ad campaigns. The TDC recently received a grant, thanks to the work of director Pam Portwood to develop a method of tracking where our visitors come from, so marketing funds can be more effectively targeted. The TDC often hosts travel writers who then write articles about Wakulla for various newspapers and magazines. An article on St. Marks will appear in the August issue of Florida Sportsman magazine. An even larger USA Today feature asked local experts to name one great scenic drive in each state and the District of Columbia. Entitled, 51 Most Scenic Drives in America,Ž the Florida entry, recommended by Sandra Friend, Florida author and host of ” oridahikes.com, was: As a sea breeze rolls in and the morning mist lifts along the Big Bend Scenic Byway, pine forests give way to the play of sunlight across the shallows of the Gulf of Mexico. A curvaceous beauty between the oyster beds of Apalachicola and the crab traps of Panacea, this 48-mile stretch of U.S. 98 offers fresh-as-you-can-get seafood along one of Floridas wildest shores.Ž This single article increased the number of visits to the Florida Big Bend Scenic Byway website from 412 in May to 1,557 in June when the article appeared. And the TDC is to thank, because Friend was one of the travel writers hosted by Portwood and the many tourist-related enterprises in the county. But why spend money to promote tourism in Wakulla County? According to VISIT FLORIDA tourism is the largest industry in Florida. In 2009, visitors spent a record $60.9 billion. That produced a return of $3.65 billion in the states economy as general revenue through the basic retail sales tax. Florida is the No. 1 destination among domestic vacation travelers in the U.S. and is the No. 2 international travel destination market in the U.S., trailing only New York. More than 80.9 million out-of-state visitors came to Florida in 2009, and from JanuaryJune of 2010 that number is up 2.5 percent. Some 17 million residents took in-state trips in 2009 and January-June 2010 estimates are up 5 percent. More than 968,400 Floridians are directly employed by tourism in Florida and every 85 visitors to Florida support one Florida job. Diane Delaney didelaney@msn.com Editor, The News: In regards to the article Public hearing set for bed tax increaseŽ by Jennifer Jensen (front page story, July 21 issue of The News) and the recent Letters to the Editor about the TDC. I did my own research and what I found was disturbing. The “ rst thing I reviewed was the tourist directors contract that clearly states she is to receive $25,000 per year or $2,083.37 per month. The countys check register proves she receives $2,437.91 per month. That is a $354.54 per month discrepancy. I spoke with commissioners and reviewed documents. I also spent many hours looking for evidence such as a new contract or authorization giving the director the extra $354.54 per month. I cannot “ nd any proof the extra thousands of dollars in pay for the director was approved. At Monday nights BOCC meeting, Commissioner Alan Brock stated that her contract needs to be updated. The board knows she is receiving more than she is contracted to receive and that is all they will do to correct the situation? No one should be able to get more money than they are contracted to receive. Giving her a new contract and letting her keep that money is unacceptable. She needs to pay back the $354.54 for each and every month she was over paid and it needs to be done ASAP. I then looked at the budget for the Tourist Development Fund. It clearly states the amount of money to be spent on things such as travel, phones, printing/ binding and advertising. I then reviewed the check register. It is clear that these items are already over budget for this “ scal year. This board needs to put a stop to the overspending. I then tried to answer the most obvious and logical question: What kind of bang for the buckŽ do the residents of this county get for taxing outsiders and our friends and family who come to visit and stay at places such as Wakulla Springs Lodge and Shell Island Fish Camp? No one knows. We know that the $50,000 this county received from BP apparently didnt help. Over $100,000 of grant money also does not seem to be doing much good either. So now the TDC decided to make it more expensive to stay at the few places there are in this county so they can spend even more money. I found many more serious and major issues that need to be addressed and raising taxes is not the answer and is not a “ x for the problems. The Board of County Commissioners needs to stop ignoring the facts being presented to them. I, for one, hoped they had learned a valuable lesson after the Housing Department “ asco. Apparently they learned nothing. The lack of oversight and accountability needs to be addressed and a complete and thorough investigation needs to be done BEFORE any more taxes are imposed. Renee Calhoun CrawfordvilleMore questions raised about TDC How to get the worlds second-best jobEditor, The News: I read with interest Paulette Coopers letter about Landing the worlds best jobŽ (Letters, July 14) and Robert Seidlers reply (The real best job is being a doer,Ž Letters, July 21) as well as replies to those comments. Im not sure about those suggestions or the replies, but I think I know how to get the worlds second-best job: 1) Have a history of saying and doing anything for a buck. 2) Show your contempt for citizen efforts to educate people about the proposed water stealing a few years ago by sending a “ lm crew to a citizen movie showing of Chinatown,Ž which intimidated some of the people who came to watch the movie about water theft in California. In a way this worked, some of the citizens were intimidated and left. I thought this only happened in communist countries. 3) Take whatever video you have of noted environmentalist Bruce Means, re-edit it to completely turn around his quotes, then show it at an N.G. Wade planning and zoning meeting while Dr. Means is out of the country, which insures the passage of the zoning because Dr. Means said it was all rightŽ … NOT. 4) After showing your true colors working against citizen interests, get a real good $38,000 no-bid single source contract from the TDC for eight 30-second videos. Now, thats a job to shoot for, Robert Seidler! Oh, thats right, that was you. Shame on you for not disclosing that in your letter. JD Brock Live Oak IslandLocal o cials have lost their sensesEditor, The News: Well, it seems the curse of Washington continues to infest our country. I read in the local paper where our local politicians are using their authority to raise our utilities by 10 percent and also the hiring of another person at $70,000plus and he wanted more. You people need to come to your senses and realize that most of the people in this area get by on far less. Thats nine times the amount of my Social Security and I pay $4 for gas and milk just like you. But come election time again, we have one vote each and I trust the people wont forget this. If I had my way, wed vote one-half of you out and cut the other half 50 percent, and that would still be four and one-half times my check. Im a transplanted Alabaman, and our new governor there agreed not to take any salary until everyone there has a job. Just maybe some of our public leaders will start to think of the shape our nation is in and stop all this greed before its too late, if not already. God bless the U.S.A. Bill Avery Panacea ank yous from familiesEditor, The News: A thank you from the Webster and Timmons family.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 – Page 5AEditor, The News: Recently our Boston Terrier, Bianca, was found after being lost for two weeks. The Roddenberry family would like to give our utmost gratitude to the Johnson family in Sopchoppy for her safe return, and the loving care they gave her. In addition to the Johnson family, we would like to give our sincere thanks to The Wakulla News for their concern, professionalism and paramount care they showed us during that trying time. Placing an advertisement with the Wakulla News brought our beloved Bianca back to our family. Advertising in the Wakulla News works! Kudos to the Johnson Family and to The Wakulla News! Thurman, Kimberly, Becton and Brooklyn Roddenberry Editor, The News: On Saturday, July 30, I did my volunteer hours at the CHAT Adoption Center. Bob Crane, the Wakulla County Animal Control of“ cer, came over to the building CHAT occupies and asked me to let him use the scale to weigh a chain he just took off a pit bull that was already dead. The owners moved away several weeks ago and left the animal on a chain. The chain weighed 10 pounds. The dog had no food, no shelter and, oh yes, there was water because it had rained. Bad thing about that was that the dog could not reach the water. He had his chain tangled around a pole. I just hope that those people who left that helpless animal do not have children. I hate to think how they are being treated. If you ever see anything suspicious, please call Animal Control at 926-0902 or 926-0906. Also, call the sheriffs office to make sure that cases like that are prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law. If you do not act things like this will never stop.

Angela Walker PrincipalCrawfordville Elementary anks for being on Crawfordville Elementarys teamEditor, The News: Wakulla County Commissioners take the easy way out … they tax. In my household, if I am in debt and spending more than I am making, I will look at my expenditures to see where I can cut the fat. Then I will cut the fat. Does our local Wakulla government do the same? Our local government is no different than the spendthrifts in Washington. Wakulla County elected officials have an entitlement mindset, and its with your tax dollars. We need to elect true fiscal conservatives who really look out for our tax dollars. At the time I write this, look at what is on the table here in Wakulla County: New Taxes € Public Service Tax … Approved € Solid Waste MSBU … Proposed € Ambulance MSBU … Proposed Increased Taxes € Communication Service Tax … Approved €Fire MSBU … Proposed € Hotel Bed Tax … Proposed We need tough decisions in county government. Many Wakulla citizens have been asking our politicians in Washington to hold the line on the budget, asking them to cut needless spending. Ask yourself, have we cut needless spending here in Wakulla County? Florida Tax Watch CEO Dominic Calabro says the county can do a better job making cuts. They should cut their operating expenses. Get rid of perks. See who gets a car that doesnt need to have a car, cut back on some of the salaries that theyre paying,Ž says Calabro. We need county commissioners, constitutional officers and the sheriffs department to all pull their weight and cut the fat and non-essential drains on us taxpayers and on the countys budget that we all know exist. We need leadership we can count on and that will seek, find and adjust the areas in county government that will save county dollars. This is their watch, the Blame BushŽ mentality used in Washington equating locally to Blame past administrationsŽ does not work with the taxpayers of Wakulla County. We need leadership and true fiscal conservatives in Wakulla County that are not afraid to look within each and every department and make tough decisions and cut the fat that is in county government. Not Commissioners who take the easy way out by taxing the already taxed citizens of this County.

Brooke Reynolds 4-H summer camps are a success By SHERRI KRAEFT Wakulla County 4-H Agent It is hard to believe, but summer is almost over. We are happy to report that all of the residential and day camps offered this summer through the 4-H program were a success. Beginning with Bug CampŽ in early June, campers got to make their own bug collections, as well as learn from several guest speakers, including David Hall and Dave Seal with the Appalachee Beekeepers Association. Students got to see two bee hives that are currently being housed at the Wakulla County Extension Of“ ce. On the last day, we had Brittany Sims and Bill Turner from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission come and talk about gopher tortoises. Camp Cherry Lake was attended by 63 campers and counselors in Madison. This year, campers visited Jungle Gyms and got to rotate through workshops that included spa, cooking, sports, crochet, outdoor cooking, as well as canning and preserving. Its no surprise that the marshmallow paint wars and the awesome camp“ re activities are also favorites of new and returning campers every year. There were three weeks of Culinary Camp where campers experienced making table linens, proper table etiquette and drying and preserving foods. We donated more than 250 items to a local womens shelter as our community service project for the camp. We also had a great time making plarn, About MeŽ bracelets, macram and recycled beads during our week of Beading Fun for Everyone. Many participants were able to utilize scholarship money to attend camps thanks to the success of our Jam 4 Camp event this past April. Please plan to join us and be a part of the second Annual Jam 4 Camp on April 28, 2012, in Hudson Park. I would like to personally thank all of our volunteers, parents and youth for a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing everyone throughout the upcoming 4-H year. For more information on any of our 4-H activities, clubs or for more information, please contact the Wakulla County 4-H Of“ ce at 926-3931 or email Sherri Kraeft at sjkraeft@u” .edu. 4-H campers participate in numerous activities during the summer ranging from spa day to learning about bee hives, pictured above, and the campers, below.PHOTOS BY JO ANN PALMER, STACY HARVEY, TRAVIS HARVEY-HENDERSON, SHERRI KRAEFTNature and wildlife photo contest entries due Sept. 6The Florida Wild Mammal Association is holding the fourth Annual Nature and Wildlife Photo Contest.

Special to The News School District Employee of the Year, Sarojanie Samlal, was recognized at the July 21 Wakulla County School Board meeting. Samlal will represent Wakulla County in the State of Florida School-Related Employee of the Year recognition program. A district selection committee reviewed the Employee of the Year applications that included letters of recommendation and a resume. Previously recognized as employee of the Month in October 2010, Samlal has proven her outstanding dedication to her school, Shadeville Elementary, the Wakulla County School District and the students she serves. In the last five years, Samlal, known as Mrs. RoŽ by her friends and co-workers, completed her associates degree, CPR/AED training, Improving Reading Fluency and Sign Language. Among her long list of accolades from parents and staff for organizing Shadevilles Accelerated Reader Store, the creation of a PBS (Positive Behavior Board) bulletin board for recognizing courteous students, and serving as PTO Historian, her most treasured is for her positive, progressive and inspiring ideas for the students she serves and especially for the special needs student with whom she works. Samlal shares, I hope that every kind word, every smile, and every hug, makes the world a better place not just for my assigned student but for all the children.Ž Space would not allow for the rave review provided by Shadeville Principal Susan Brazier, however, in summation Brazier shares, Mrs. Ro is a special lady who brings joy to our schools working environment daily. She is one of the “ nest employees I have ever worked with and I greatly admire her.Ž Assistant Principal DeeAnn Hughes adds, During the five years that I have worked with Mrs. Ro I have seen her tireless enthusiasm, undeniable dedication, and her people-oriented personality that has such a positive, motivating effect on all of us around her.Ž Samlal graduated from Naparima Girls High School, Trinidad, West Indies, in 1983; then went on to attend San Fernando Technical Institute, Trinidad, from 1983 to 85, where she received a diploma in early childhood Education and Computer Programming. From 1986 to 1997, she attended York University, Canada and Broward Community College, Fort Lauderdale. In 2010, she completed her associates degree at Tallahassee Community College. Superintendent David Miller concludes, I am delighted and proud Mrs. Samlal will be representing Wakulla County Schools at the State level for Employee of the Year. She is an asset to our District who exempli“ es the character of employees who go above and beyond to make this an A District.

Special to The News Crawfordville Elementary Schools teachers dont rest in the summer. Our teachers (like most all teachers in Wakulla County), are planning for the new year, researching new websites, meeting with each other, getting their rooms set up, reading books, looking at the new and old curriculum and trying to plan the perfect year for their students. They plan for the successes of their individual students, as well as for the successes of all students through positive, productive, creative approaches while keeping parents involved in the process. Such opportunities include Bingo for Books held twice a year, book fairs, book clubs, reading contests, book drives, parent conferences, our volunteer and PTA programs, as well as many other opportunities that come up throughout the year. Crawfordville, however, didnt want to wait until school started to reach out to its students and community. The newest approach to family connectionsŽ is through the idea of a Trade and Travel Truck.Ž The school has been creating ways to improve parent involvement and the love for reading for many years, and the Trade and Travel TruckŽ seemed to “ t in with the plan. The plan is to provide new books for students and families, encourage reading, provide reading tips, and give opportunities for students to trade their new or used book for another one at other events held at school. More than 150 postcards were sent to families in Crawfordville neighborhoods prior to the visit to let them know that Crawfordvilles Trade and Travel TruckŽ would be in their area at specific times. On July 28, the Trade and Travel Truck TeamŽ ventured out into the community to give away free new books and help the students beat the heat with frozen treats. A group of about 11 teachers, administrators and paraprofessionals, gathered together at school, piled in the back of a couple of pick-up trucks with more than 400 books and 300 popsicles to begin their journey. Lots of books were given out, all of the popsicles were consumed, elementary students were seen and just as many middle school students, new parents were met and familiar parents were greeted, requests were made to come back again. Connections were made with many families, and an incredible experience was had by all who went and were involved. We plan to visit other neighborhoods, continue to provide opportunities for parents to be involved and continue to ensure a quality education for all students at Crawfordville Elementary. Free books and popsicles given away by travel truck Students enjoy the free popsicles and books given away by teachers from Crawfordville Elementary School as part of the Trade and Travel Truck. Students browse through books at the trade and travel truck on July 28.


www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 – Page 9Asports news and team viewsSportsBy PAUL HOOVERWHS Track CoachSixteen Wakulla High School cross country runners recently attended the Warrior Running Camp held at Berry College in Rome, Ga. The week-long camp is designed to help further the runners knowledge and experience of cross country running while interacting with other runners from all over the southeast. This is the second year that WHS runners have attended the camp and was by far the largest contingent from the school to ever attend such a camp, more than doubling the number that had attended in the past. The directors of the camp provide a great running environment coupled with some formal instruction, but also really stress it being a fun experience for the campers. Besides the daily training runs, there were also various innovative and fun team competitions and the experience culminated in a 5K Warrior Race up the campus mountain. The WHS team was the second largest team at the camp this year. Through the athletes fundraising efforts at Wal-Mart and Victors, the Booster Club was able to cover half of the cost of the camp for all the athletes and this made it possible for a lot more of them to attend. This is the third camp we have attended, but to have 16 athletes go to this year really exceeded our expectations,Ž said Coach Paul Hoover. These camps are really important to the program, not only for the training bene“ ts, but primarily for the team building aspect. Of the 16 runners who attended, seven are new runners, Hoover said, either incoming freshmen or sophomores, who have not yet gone through a cross country season. This is such a great way to introduce them to the sport and help build our program. Hopefully, by the time they are seniors, they will have attended four of them. The kids really seem to love this camp and are already talking about going next year,Ž Hoover said. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe WHS cross country runners after the 5K Warrior Race up the mountain. Returning runners on the team include Norma Woodcock, Cora Atkinson, Raychel Gray, Marty Wiedeman, Rachel Woofter, Zach Broadway, Cody James, Stanley Linton, Gabe Hutchins and new runners, Casey James, Lydia Wiedeman, Tyler Kinard, Lilli Broadway, Savanna Strickland, Amber Stewart and Mitchell Atkinson.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsBy RODNEY BARRETOFWC CommissionerI wanted to take a moment and reflect on how far the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission team has come in the past 10 years. I have been honored to work with commissioners and staff who are not only dedicated to the mission of the FWC, but also passionate in managing “ sh and wildlife resources for their long-term wellbeing and the bene“ t of people. I am proud to note that Floridians have more hunting and “ shing opportunities now than before. Thirty new areas with public hunting have been added in the past “ ve years, totaling an additional 135,000 acres. We all understand the need to reach out to our youth, and a hunting initiative that I am particularly proud of is the new youth turkey hunting weekend, allowing hunting on 78 FWC-managed areas. The youth turkey hunts on these wildlife management areas will be two-day, Saturday-Sunday hunts on the weekend prior to the opening of spring turkey season on each particular WMA, beginning with the 2012 season. It is so important to expose young people to outdoor recreational opportunities. The more our youth experience wildlife and nature, the more likely they are to grow up to appreciate these resources and to pass along outdoor traditions to future generations. In addition to expanded hunting opportunities, we constantly strive to make sure Florida has plentiful “ shing resources. Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World.Ž What angler doesnt look forward to the thrill of hearing a reel sing as line peels out. We are the worlds destination for visitors who want to catch tarpon, bone“ sh and permit, and I am especially proud of our catch-and-release program for these rock starsŽ of saltwater “ shing. The Commission has worked hard to ensure Floridians and our visitors have the opportunity to catch a big one. Another opportunity is the expansion of this years bay scallop season. It kicked off on June 25 and runs through Sept. 25, starting a week early and running two weeks longer than usual. This is great family fun and gives our visitors and residents the chance to take advantage of this fun outdoor activity. Recognizing that anglers and hunters are just a part of Floridas conservation community, I am proud of the vast resources available to wildlife viewers in our state made possible through our various partnerships. The Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail represents only one aspect of wildlife viewing enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. The FWC worked with the Wildlife Foundation of Florida and the Florida Department of Transportation to create this network of 500 birding sites and 2,000 miles of self-guided highway trails throughout Florida. There are many things that I will take with me as I leave the Commission, including many memories, friendships and accomplishments that I share with my fellow commissioners and FWC staff. Id like to thank my fellow commissioners and FWC staff for their hard work and dedication in helping to make all these public opportunities possible, in addition to their years of support and friendship. I have been honored to work with a group of people who are passionate about wildlife issues and consider the work they do to be a calling, as have I. Finally, I want to thank former governors Bush and Crist. I will always be honored and humbled by the con“ dence they showed me when they appointed me to the Commission as well as their continued support that made this journey possible.Rodney Barreto is leaving the FWC after 10 years on the Commission, having served as chairman for the past six years.Capt. Jody Campbell is on vacation this week. His column, From the Dock,Ž should return next week. Re” ecting on 10 years on the FWC JoinTheNature Conservancytoplant abilliontrees, one tree at a time, in the ght to end climate change at plantabillion.org From FWC NewsWith the dog days of summer upon us, its hard to think about hunting. But if youre between the ages of 16 and 36, and havent yet taken the states hunter safety class … nows just the time to be thinking about it. Many of these classes, offered statewide, “ ll up fast during hunting season while people scramble to get certi“ ed. Summer months offer smaller class sizes and offer a better opportunity for students to attend, because they often have more free time then. People 16 years old or older and born after May 31, 1975, must complete the FWCs hunter safety requirement before they can buy a Florida hunting license. There is an exception though. A law passed a few years ago allows individuals to hunt under the supervision of a licensed hunter, 21 years old or older, without having to complete the states hunter safety certi“ cation. Its called the Hunter Safety Deferral License, and it allows those people who purchase one to hunt on a one-year trial basis.

I have to offer my sincere appreciation to Mark Rosen and Bob Asztalos from Flotilla 12 for sending the following story and pictures. Mark wrote: When is the captain of a vessel not a captain? When he is a Master Chief Boatswains (Bosuns) Mate commanding an 87-foot Coast Guard Patrol Boat. At a ceremony held at Coast Guard Station Panama City on Friday, July 29, Master Chief Boatswain Mate Robert Przybylski retired after 26 years in the service and passed command of the Seahawk to Master Chief Boatswain Mate Daniel B. Kilbourne, who entered the service in 1987. Attended by members of the St. Marks Auxiliary ” otilla, Bob Asztalos, Bill Wannall, Raye Crews and Mark Rosen, the ceremony was a duplicate of the ceremony passing command that has been performed thousands of times in the history of the Coast Guard. To this writer, the high point of the ceremony was the passing of a folded ” ag from an assemblage of Master Chiefs from as far away as Mobile, including several who served with Master Chief Przybylski over his time in service. Gifts presented to the master chief included a sterling silver Bosuns whistle, used to pipe senior of“ cers on and off the ship and a shadow box containing replicas of all his awards and decorations. The shadow box has a story rooted in tradition. When a Coastie retired, if his shadow preceded him off his last command, it was considered bad luck. But the shadow box captures that shadow and the retiree is assured of good luck throughout his retirement. Also attending were Master Chief Boatswain Mate Robert Przybylskis wife, Maria, and his two daughters. A lunch was served in the station mess, along with a luscious cake. It was truly an honor to be part of that celebration. This commentary speaks volumes about who the auxiliary is perceived by the active duty, especially in our region. For most of the important ceremonies and celebrations at Station Panama City, the auxiliary has an open invitation. We are truly lucky to have such support and camaraderie between the gold side and the silver side. On Saturday, Aug. 6, Flotilla 12 will hold our monthly meeting at the “ re station in Crawfordville. An FSO meeting will begin at 9 a.m. followed by a fellowship breakfast/snack at 10 a.m. Our business meeting begins at 10:15 a.m. and is scheduled to conclude by noon. Later that same afternoon, all FSOs are encouraged to join our Flotilla Commander Bob Asztalos and VFC Bill Wannall in Carrabelle for a business meeting with our St. George Island detachment beginning at 2 p.m. at the Boat Club in Carrabelle. This meeting will in place of the regular meeting on the second Thursday. I would be remiss if I did not remind everyone of Sherries words of wisdom, Safe Boating is No Accident.

St. Marks River Entrance Ever had one of those days when nothing goes right? A ” at tire on your way to work, or the elevator being busted when you have to travel to the 13th ” oor. In diving, these Oh, no!Ž moments happen all the time. When you are diving shallow and there is a clear path to the surface, these moments arent very important. But when you are traveling deep into the bowels of the earth, you need to pay attention. The rule goes something like this, if for any reason you have an issue that makes you say Oh, no!Ž that counts as one. As you continue on, if you have to say Oh, no!Ž three times, GO HOME. Crawl back into bed and watch re-runs until dinner and try again tomorrow. In some regions, this is followed by the statement, God loves you and wants you to live.Ž Why would you drive two hours, put on a burning hot wetsuit and haul your equipment more than 200 yards to the dive site just to turn around and go home when you reach this magical number? Well, you want to live dont you? The theory behind the three strike rule is that in any diving related death, no one problem will kill you. Usually its something like six or seven problems. The average human can handle up to three major problems occurring at any time, after that its too much to balance. When youre in trouble, all those other problems dont just go away, they become even worse because as you divert your attention to managing the one failure, those others will begin to fail as well. Years ago, a very good friend of ours was diving in a cave in Jackson County, lets call him Bob. Bob was diving a Rebreather (when he exhaled, the exhaust was “ lled with oxygen and cleaned for reuse), one he had been fully trained and quali“ ed to use. Bobs dive buddy was diving open circuit (meaning that when he exhaled the exhaust was in the form of bubbles in the water). Our friend Bob ignored the rule of three strikes. One, he drove all night to reach his dive site; he was exhausted and mentally compromised. Two, his oxygen sensors were not showing the correct voltages and were malfunctioning. Three, his oxygen injection system was rusting and needed replacement. Those three factors were known to Bob before the dive began. What was not considered before the dive was the following; One, Bobs dive buddy was not briefed on what to do in an emergency. Two, Bob had not invested in a bailout system that had been proven to save lives on Rebreathers during emergencies. Three, when Bob cleaned his rusty oxygen injection system, he put it back in upside down. Bob died because his oxygen injector (solenoid) was incorrectly installed. However, had his oxygen sensors been working, he would have known that his oxygen levels were too high. Had he not needed a new oxygen injector, he would not have removed his. Had his buddy known how to help him during the emergency, he could have made a safe emergency exit. And with the improved bailout, Bob might have been able to save himself. At any point, if Bob had called the dive at strike three, he would still be with us today. The rule of three strikes is almost a mantra amongst technical divers because it shows how risk management is so important to coming home alive.


Staff reportCharlie Creel, candidate for Wakulla County Sheriff, was endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police at a campaign event held over the weekend. A letter from the president of FOP, James Preston, praises Creel for his 30-year career as a state trooper with the Florida Highway Patrol, eight of which were served in the Wakulla area. The citizens of Wakulla will be well-served with a fresh outlook and positive approach you will bring to the office of sheriff,Ž Prestons letter reads. At the campaign event on Saturday, July 30, Creel was also endorsed by Dale Wise, who served for a time as the undersheriff at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office. During a 40-year career in law enforcement, Wise also served as interim sheriff of Alachua County. Creel announced his candidacy a couple months ago. He ran for the of“ ce in 2008 and lost by 50 votes to Sheriff David Harvey, who has been in of“ ce for 35 years and is currently the dean of Florida sheriffs. Harvey has not announced his intentions yet, whether to seek re-election or not, and speculation is rife about the upcoming campaign and who may run if Harvey doesnt. Continued from Page 1ABrock said the average price for collection is $300 and if half the county pays for garbage collection currently, they would save money with the $196 assessment. With the $112 option, they are looking at an increase. They will see a tangible change for $196,Ž Brock said. And the offer of picking up recycling brings the county into the 21st century, Stewart said. The commission is also hoping the mandatory garbage collection will reduce illegal dumping on the roads and in the woods. Commissioner Jerry Moore said he couldnt support the $196 option because it puts the local haulers out of a job and doesnt keep the service local. In the current proposal, Waste Pro would be the only garbage hauler in the county and would be required to buyout the other companies, giving them 15 months worth of gross receipts. Also included in the proposal is that Waste Pro will hire those displaced workers in Wakulla County before anyone else. Fleming said many of the haulers are behind on payments to the county, but he stuck his neck out for them. We could have put them out of business 3 years ago,Ž Fleming said. Another problem, Fleming said, was no regulations regarding the haulers. With Waste Pro, the commission will review its performance every year. Commissioner Randy Merritts opposition was more out of principle and that he didnt feel the government should tell the citizens they must have curbside pickup. This is the easiest option for us,Ž Merritt said. We dont have to do anything. We dont have to solve our own problems.Ž The contact would be for a 10-year agreement and would include the county receiving a franchise fee, which would be used to close and cap the landfill. The county would still own the transfer station, but it would be taken over and modi“ ed by Waste Pro. Waste Pro would provide weekly garbage and recyclables pickup, once a month pick up of bulk items and upon request pick up of white items, such as a washing machine. Many people in the community were worried about whether a garbage truck come come down their long driveway. Ralph Mills with Waste Pro of Florida said they can get anywhere the postal service can. There was also a fear about only having one franchise hauler, creating a monopoly where the hauler could increase its fee each year. The commission said the company is only allowed to increase to no more than the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and excess fuel surcharges and must come before the commission for approval. The commission then voted unanimously to approve the initial solid waste assessment resolution and update the tax roll and prepare the mailing of notices for the assessment. The commission will hold a public hearing on the solid waste assessment at the Sept. 6 commission meeting.Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce Deputy Sean Wheeler arrested an Alabama fugitive at 12:10 a.m. Saturday, July 30, after the suspect led Florida Highway Patrol Troopers on a high speed chase from Lanark Village in Franklin County to a convenience store near Wakulla High School in Medart, according to Sheriff David Harvey. Christopher Wayne Lynn, 25, of Logan, Ala., was charged with aggravated ” eeing and attempting to elude law enforcement of“ cers with injury or property damage, crimes against persons, resisting an of“ cer with high speed fleeing, DUI, possession of narcotics equipment and out of state fugitive from justice.

Stone and FHP Trooper Michael Simmons attempted to stop Lynn again north of Sopchoppy, but in the process, Lynns vehicle, a 2003 Toyota Tundra, struck Simmons FHP vehicle. Lynns vehicle also struck Stones vehicle. Deputy Wheeler spotted the suspects vehicle near a convenience store in Medart. Lynn pulled into the convenience store in an attempt to hide. Deputy Wheeler blocked the Toyota in and drew his service weapon in an attempt to get Lynn to obey his commands to get down on the ground. Eventually, Deputy Wheeler assisted his suspect to the ground and handcuffed him. Lynn was taken to the Wakulla County jail without incident. The vehicle was turned over to FHP of“ cials who arrived on scene a short time later with other WCSO units as back-up.

Argenziano planning a run for CongressBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 1, … Former Republican state Sen. Nancy Argenziano said Monday she is prepared to run as a Democrat for the seat now held by U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Fla. Argenziano, who said she will of“ cially announce her candidacy in the next couple of weeks, has grown increasingly vocal about what she views as the hijackingŽ of her former party. She retired from the Public Service Commission last year, a few months before her term was set to expire, to campaign against Rick Scotts successful gubernatorial bid. And Argenziano was part of a series of Awake the StateŽ rallies held earlier this year to slam the agenda pursued by Scott and the GOP-dominated Legislature. I decided to run as a Democrat because the Republican Party left me and they left their principles,Ž Argenziano said in an interview Monday afternoon. Word of Argenzianos plans leaked out as a draft of a letter she wrote to friends who had asked her to run began circulating on the Internet. We have seen our representatives vote to end common sense protections that ensure clean air and clean water, pass the Ryan plan which proposed to gut Social Security and end Medicare, put the full faith and credit of America in doubt for the “ rst time in history, and vote against protecting Americas wildlife from extinction, among other steps backward into the 16th century,Ž Argenziano wrote in the final draft of her letter.  ... The barbarians are no longer at the gate; they are in the halls of Congress.Ž The independent-minded Argenziano says Democrats should be under no illusion about what theyre getting. She said she wouldnt be in lockstep with that party either, insisting she will still speak her mind. Its time, and I plan to jump in,Ž she said in the interview. And if I believed that America was really ready to put independents in of“ ce, I would run as an independent.Ž Argenziano could present a credible challenge to the freshman Southerland, who defeated incumbent Democrat Allen Boyd last year amid a Republican tsunami. Her old Senate district includes parts or all of six of the counties crossed by the sprawling 2nd congressional district.

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, August 4, 2011 Section B T a k i n g C a r e o f B u s i n e s s Taking Care of Business B u s i n e s s N e w s f r o m Business News from In the interest of serving the business community in the best way we know how, we have been focusing heavily on our local government, as it has the most in” uence on the environment within which our businesses must thrive. With that in mind, and as we move into August, there are a number of issues being considered by our commissioners that should be keeping us on our toes. As you may know our planning director has resigned and our commissioners decided at the June 18 meeting to advertise for a new planning commissioner. This new employees immediate supervisor will be the new administrator, David Edwards … hopefully, he will have enough time to get oriented after Oct. 1 to have a meaningful say in the selection process. Given the state of our construction economy, we probably should have held off a couple of weeks in deference to Edwards, as the planning director will be one of his key people. Hopefully, the process will be delayed and this error will correct itself … with Edwards heading up the search committee and bringing candidates to the commissioners. Our building official has also resigned in the last few days. On a positive note, Rod Revell has stepped forward to express an interest in the position. We need to get back to a local person in this position and wish Rod well as he begins work on his certi“ cations. I clearly remember the time when we had only one inspector, the building of“ cial, and there was more work going on then than now. Given the state of the countys budget and the lack of construction activity, we need to trim this department back and await better days. I also remember a time when the clerk of the court developed the budget for the county, I am not sure what caused us to have two budgetary staffs in our little county, other than a check and balance, but given the state of the economy, and with a new administrator coming in, this may be an excellent time to drop both assistant administrator positions and reorganize for the lean times ahead. The Chamber recently attended a workshop on what to do with the community center our county bought with the idea that we could use grant funds to pay a large portion of the cost. Unfortunately, our staff did not completely understand the grant guidelines regarding existing buildings and therein lies one of the main reasons for our budget shortfall. The workshop discussion centered around how to spend $392,000 in grant money on the new purchase and the most discussed option was to put in a swimming pool with YMCA managing it for the county. Continued on Page 4B e business perspective Presidents message: JOHN SHUFFChamber President Chamber mixer is held at Capt. SeaNiles Pool & Pub About 40 members met up at Capt. SeaNiles Pool & Pub for a Pinnacle Vodka tasting and hors doeuvres. Some did not know that we have a pool hall in Crawfordville, and were surprised at the size of Capt. SeaNiles. There is no need to drive to Tallahassee for a round of billiard or darts. We had a lot of fun wielding our cues after being challenged to a round of pool. Capt. SeaNiles opened in August 2008. The name of the establishment comes from the familys love of the water and the family boat SeaNile.Ž The establishment boasts 6,000 square feet, with 10 tournament-grade pool tables, steel-tip darts, leagues, pool tournaments and a host of other activities to enjoy. Since inception, the establishment acquired a liquor license in May 2009. The package store was opened in June 2010. Capt. SeaNiles has been striving to provide an alternative entertainment to the community.

We were a backyard diver training business, “ lling the occasional tanks from our compressors located deep in the Wakulla woods. At the urging of our loyal customers, and our growing international community, we began looking for a permanent home in 2006. It took four years and the housing market to crash before we found our new home in Medart on U.S. Highway 98. We are now building one of the best (and largest) dive service centers in the region. We regularly play host to international students and divers who bring their vacation money here to Wakulla County. What services, products do you offer? Simply put, we sell service to the diving customer. That means we start with the stated desire of the customer, and match it what we have or can get. We currently offer cylinder gas “ lls from simple air, Nitrox, Trimix, Oxygen, Argon and CO2. We can repair most dive equipment, though sometimes we are provided dive gear too far gone to repair economically. We offer the widest selection of new equipment from Atomic, to Aqualung, Aeris, Apexs, Dive Rite Mares, Poseidon, TUSA and Genesis. We offer diver training basic scuba classes through Advanced Rebreather cave training. We train cave divers, as well as rescue divers and underwater criminology. The Underwater Crime Scene Investigation (UCSI) is an investigative team associated with Wakulla Diving Center, that primarily investigates Rebreather fatalities. Right now we do not offer charters, however, by spring 2012 we hope to have a crew and captain to provide off shore service. We work closely with the Wakulla County Dive Club. We are organizing a local spear“ shing club. Check back with us as we grow our services. What sets your business apart from the competition? We have two diving communities in Wakulla County. One is recreational, the folks who love snorkeling, photography and spear a few “ sh offshore in shallow water. The other diving community is called technical, the folks who love to dive our caves to depths of 200 feet as much as a mile back from the opening. We aspire to bridge the gap and to meet the needs of all divers from free swimmers to rebreathers. We are all inclusive, and the customer always comes “ rst. What should we be on the lookout for? Wakulla Diving Center is always growing and expanding. We are still in the summer season when recreational divers prevail, and we are bringing on new staff and expanding our spear“ shing and free diving specially corners. In two months, the Technical community will begin arriving as the weather cools down. Winter events designed to keep summer divers interested include a local spear“ shing contest, monthly seminars and the fall internship (equipment training). Proposed summer plans include workshops, movies, offshore boat service and expanded training. We are also putting together a Labor Day sale to clear out equipment that has failed to sell so that we can bring in the latest greatest toys for our customers to enjoy. Why did you join the Chamber? We joined in 2010 for the opportunity to support the community and to network with like-minded business people. Whats your reason why Wakulla residents should Shop Local? When you shop local, you are keeping our economy alive and well. When you shop big corporations, youre supporting someone who will never support you.

Page 4B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1B I wonder how many people in Wakulla County have been able to afford a pool the last few years? Our county cant afford it either. What would happen if things did not work out for YMCA and they turned the management back over to us in a couple of years? Commercial pools are expensive to maintain and require trained staff to operate safely. Do we want to get in the lifeguard business right now? Why not spend it on a “ re suppression system that will be required for future uses and get a reduction in our insurance rate on the building right now? Thinking like this makes one very concerned that the fact that we are broke has not truly sunk in yet. As discussed in the July article, the commission passed the new utility tax and, as always, new laws have unintended consequences. We recently found out that our largest employer, St. Marks Powder, and other large employers will be disproportionately affected by the public service tax. When the issue was discussed with their home office, St. Marks Powder was told to cut eight to nine jobs. What would happen to our economy if they decided to leave? St. Marks Powder has been good for Wakulla and we need to develop an exemption that will protect our jobs. Another issue is beginning to be bantered around about Wakulla Springs and new campgrounds. As you may recall a couple of months back we were concerned about Wakulla Springs and whether it would stay open. We now have a new concession operator at the springs and we certainly hope they are successful. The state is also considering establishing a fairly large campground across Highway 61 from the park, surely in an attempt to augment revenues as the state is also feeling the money pinch. This has elicited numerous comments from the community and a proposed resolution from Commissioner Lynn Artz to study the concept and its effect on the aquifer. We support Artz resolution, but with the thought being how can we get this done in an environmentally sound way. Sewer and water are available on Highway 61 so this should be a fairly easy task. We have been stating for years that we are destined to be an eco-tourism economy, so what could be more in tune with that concept than a campground? We should be thinking about putting a little space between the units or arranging in pods so we dont end up with a typical cookie cutter plan. We need to come up with a “ rst class design as these people will rent our kayaks, hire our Green Guides and boat captains, eat in our restaurants and walk across the street to swim in the springs. If we want Wakulla Springs to stay under state control we need to help with the “ nancial solution to the states problem. We will not be able to keep Wakulla Springs as our little piece of heaven funded by the rest of the state. Enough for policy wonkishness! We will be holding our third business luncheon at Poseys Steam Room in Panacea on Aug. 24, and somehow I have a feeling that seafood will be on the menu … so plan to attend our newest venue for getting the business community together. The Chambers Education Committee has been partnering with Tallahassee Community College, Florida A&Ms Small Business Development Center and Florida States Jim Moran Institute for the last two years to offer free workshops to our members. FAMU SBDC will be holding a Small Business FinancingŽ workshop Aug. 10 at the Chamber of“ ce from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Seating is limited, so call the of“ ce for your reservation at 9261848. We have had several new members join this past month: Jos Dollar World at North Pointe Center R. Alan Andrews P. A. at North Point Center Certi“ ed Security of Tallahassee Billy Mills Wakulla Produce at Whiddon Lake road and 319.John W. Shuff is the president of the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce. Presidents message: e business perspective The Chamber welcomed and held a ribbon cutting ceremony for new member Jos Dollar World on July 13. Josette Balkman was raised in a family oriented business environment and eventually became assistant manager of the small grocery store located in Tallahassee that her parents worked hard to make a success. Balkman, with the support of her husband who is a retired minister, started making plans to open a small business in the community they have grown to love since moving here three and a half years ago. With a goal to provide good and affordable merchandise to the community, they made a decision to launch Jos Dollar World. The inventory includes costume jewelry, hair accessories, religious items, novelties, toys, mens items, greeting cards, gift items, and etc. They cannot promise to greet customers with the jokes and rhymes such as give me a nickel and Ill make you tickleŽ or give me a dime and Ill give you a rhyme,Ž or give me a dollar and Ill make you hollerŽ that she recalls her dad so happily greeting his customers with on a daily basis, but they aim to provide wonderful customer service so that the customers shopping experience will be one that they will remember. Business hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Chamber of Commerce proudly presented two scholarship checks to Wakulla High School graduates Holly Marie Peacock, above, and Ryan Alexander Leigh, below, in July. Holly will be attending TCC, and Ryan is enrolled at FSU. Funds for the scholarships were raised through a new annual Chamber event, the Low Country Boil, held earlier this year in April.

Mary Wallace has come up with another opportunity for networking with local businesses and Chamber members. Mark your lunch calendar for the last Wednesday of every month to have lunch with area business owners and managers. The luncheon also provides an opportunity to try different area restaurants each month, win door prizes and meet new chamber members and member guests. In August, the luncheon will be held at Poseys Up the Creek in Panacea. Cost is $12 including entree, beverage and dessert. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 – Page 5BBy JASON ALDERMAN One indicator our economy is still hurting is that more and more people are postponing retirement. According to the Department of Labor, those over 55 and still working have increased steadily since the recession began … 28.9 million at last count … and some surveys show more than a third of employees expect to work past age 70 or never retire. Would-be retirees have faced a perfect storm of negative situations: Having to tap retirement savings early to cover bills or tide them through unemployment. Plunging home values diminished or erased the equity many had hoped to draw on in retirement. Unable to afford … or qualify for … health insurance theyll need until Medicare kicks in. And many boomer parents have put their own savings on hold while helping their kids struggle through the recession. If youre hoping to retire in the next few years, consider the following: How much will you need? Financial planners often suggest people may need 70 percent or more of pre-retirement income to maintain their current lifestyle, but its dif“ cult to generalize. For example, some people downsize housing or retire to less expensive areas and thus need less. Others can expect increased medical, utility and other bills to outpace earnings on their savings. Start estimating your retirement needs by using online calculators: The Retirement Estimator at www.ssa.gov/estimator automatically enters your earnings information to estimate your projected Social Security benefits under different scenarios, such as age at retirement, future earnings projections, etc. You can also download a more detailed calculator to make more precise estimates. Check whether your 401(k) plan administrators website has a calculator to estimate how much you will accumulate under various contribution and investment scenarios. If not, try the various retirement calculators at www. bankrate.com. AARP offers a retirement calculator to help determine your current “ nancial status and what youll need to save to meet your retirement needs. After youve explored various retirement scenarios, consider paying a “ nancial planner to help work out an investment and savings game plan. If you dont have a personal referral, good resources include www.cfp.net, www. napfa.org and www.fpanet. org. Social Security issues. To make ends meet, many people begin drawing reduced benefits from Social Security before reaching full retirement (65 for those born before 1938 and gradually increasing to 67 thereafter). This can have several “ nancial consequences: Your monthly benefit will be reduced by up to 30 percent. (Conversely, if you postpone bene“ ts until after reaching full retirement age, your bene“ t increases by 7 to 8 percent per year, up to age 70.) Although many states dont tax Social Security bene“ ts, they are counted as taxable income by the federal government. So, depending on your overall income, you could owe federal tax on a portion of your bene“ t. IRS Publication 915 at www.irs. gov has full details. If you begin drawing Social Security while still working, your benefit could be signi“ cantly reduced depending on your income. Read How Work Affects Your Bene“ tsŽ at www.ssa. gov for details. (Rest assured, however: Those reductions arent truly lost since your benefit will be recalculated upward at full retirement age.) One last suggestion: Once youve settled on what you think will be a suf“ cient retirement budget, try living on it for a few months first before retiring to make sure it actually works.Jason Alderman directs Visas “ nancial education programs. To follow him on Twitter: www.twitter. com/PracticalMoneyIn the current economy, should you delay retirement?TALLAHASSEE … On Monday, Aug. 1, several changes to Floridas Unemployment Compensation program that were signed into law last month took effect. These reforms will save the state money, reduce taxes on employers and help get Floridians back to work. Changes taking effect Aug. 1 include: € Internet Filing and Certi“ cation of Weeks … Initial and continued claims must be “ led over the internet. The change will improve government ef“ ciency and provide a projected $4.7 million savings annually in administrative costs. AWIs unemployment compensation hotline will be available to answer questions about the “ ling process. € Work Search … Claimants are required to contact at least “ ve potential employers per week and provide this information over the internet during their bi-weekly certi“ cation for bene“ ts. A quick, ef“ cient way to contact employers is by using the Employ Florida Marketplace at employ” orida. com, the states online job matching system where you can search thousands of job postings and apply for jobs. If a claimant is not able to make at least “ ve employer contacts in a week, meeting with a representative at a local one-stop career center for reemployment services will satisfy this requirement for that week. € Skills Review … In order to receive bene“ ts, claimants “ ling new claims must complete an initial skills review over the Internet. The results of the review will be used by local One-Stop Career Centers to assist claimants with “ nding jobs. € Severance Pay … If a claimants severance pay per week is equal to or greater than the claimants weekly bene“ t amount, the claimant is not entitled to bene“ ts for that week.

Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, July 29 … Florida of“ cials this week made sinkhole rates go higher and hoped prison costs would go lower in an effort to save state taxpayers money on both. Sinkhole coverage got a lot more expensive for tens of thousands of coastal residents who will see their rates leap toward the heavens as state insurers this week tried to make up for decisions made a few years ago that critics say were politically expedient, but actuarially irresponsible. With losses far outstripping premiums as claims exploded in recent years, the statebacked insurer of last resort says it has to charge more for less. Meanwhile, Florida prison of“ cials are hoping to pay less for more as they privatize prisons in the southern third of the state. Correction of“ cials had a busy week, also spending time in court defending the states recipe for a lethal cocktail of drugs used to execute death row inmates. And while debt ceilings and default were on the tongues of most politicians, Florida lawmakers spent some time on the road this week getting input from the vox populi on how to fairly redraw political boundaries while addressing the needs of minority candidates and communities of interest. Meanwhile, state of“ cials had to defend themselves against allegations of unfairness and ineptitude over the “ ring of allegedly incompetent insurance fraud investigators, and an initial slate of inductees to the states newly established veterans Hall of Fame that included Confederates and not a single veteran of color. CITIZENS APPROVES RATES HIKES TO FILL SINKHOLE BLACK HOLE Citizens Property Insurance Corp.s Board of Governors on Wednesday unanimously approved sinkhole premium increases for 2012 that will cause rates for coastal homeowners to skyrocket, some by thousands of dollars a year. We recognize that the need for sinkhole coverage is enormous,Ž said Citizens CFO Sharon Binnon. This fact is not lost on us but this is about Citizens past experienceƒ. These rates are the direct result in the explosion of claims.Ž Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, whose region will see some of the highest premium increases for sinkhole coverage, has led the charge against the rate hikes. He continued his quest this week. There are people who live in sinkhole prone areas that could potentially be forced out of their homes due to these rate increases,Ž Fasano said in a statement. Pasco County coastal residents, according to Citizens estimates, will see average sinkhole premiums jump from $441 to $4,017, an increase of 810 percent for the optional coverage. Last year, Citizens collected about $32 million in sinkhole premiums but paid out more than $245 million in claims. Insurers blame the increase not on a geological change, but savvy attorneys, public claims adjusters and inadequate protections in Florida law. Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, has joined Fasano in calling for public hearings on the proposed rate increases. PRIVATE PRISONS, PUBLIC GOOD? Calling it a prudent experiment … although one that should not expand further until the facts are in … the states top prison of“ cials this week moved the state forward on its plan to privatize prisons in the southern third of the state. Corrections Secretary Ed Buss said in an interview this week that after this round, the state should stop until it knows what the effect is. I think in terms of private prisons, this is as far as Florida should go,Ž Buss told the News Service. This wasnt my decision, this wasnt Gov. Scotts decision. This was the Legislatures decision.Ž The state on Monday released a request for proposals calling for a “ ve-year contract with a single bidder to run 29 facilities associated with 11 South Florida correctional institutes. One of the states main law enforcement unions has sued to try to block the move. That contract should allow the state to assess how a widespread system of private prisons would work in comparison to public facilities, Buss said. That would include a look at how well private prisons work to reduce recidivism, one of Buss top goals as corrections secretary. This will provide some competition so that the public and private sector can go headto-head,Ž he said. I wouldnt recommend any future private prisons until we get the data and we see if it does actually work.Ž SCOTT: EMBRACE TEXAS HIGHER ED REFORMS Gov. Rick Scott has begun discreetly promoting the same changes to the higher education system that Texas Gov. Rick Perry has championed including controversial measures on merit pay for professors, tenure reform, and generally a much greater emphasis on measurement of whether professors are turning out students that meet certain goals. Scott has discussed the Texas reforms with his appointees to university and college governing boards to line up support to dramatically change how universities and colleges are funded, overhaul professor tenure, emphasize teaching over research, and give students more in” uence. REDISTRICTING HITS THE ROAD Gearing up for redistricting talks later this year, lawmakers took their show on the road to Central Florida this week as they heard from local residents on how to redraw Floridas political map that is expected to include another congressional seat along the I-4 corridor. From Latinos, who made up much of Central Floridas population growth since the 2000 Census, the request was for a district that would be heavily in” uenced by Hispanic voters as an acknowledgment of the in” ux of non-Cuban Latinos. Blacks asked for a district that would continue in the mold of the seat held by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla., who won her seat in a heavily black district after changes forced by the Voting Rights Act. LatinoJustice PRLDEF, an organization that has been working with Latino community leaders in the area on redistricting, presented a map of a Central Florida district that would be 46.2 percent Hispanic and 12.3 percent black. It would run from Haines City to Union Park. Black residents urged lawmakers not to unwind Browns district, particularly in light of the new Fair Districts standards, which are aimed at curbing partisan gerrymandering and forcing lawmakers to draw compact districts. Browns district snakes from Jacksonville to Orlando. Meanwhile in Tallahassee, a federal judge heard from a conservative voting rights group that a new Florida election law unconstitutionally burdens grassroots groups trying to get their voices heard. U.S. District Court Judge Robert Hinkle has been asked to throw out the law opponents say places undue restrictions on small, nominally funded groups by requiring stringent disclosure requirements. Attorneys for the Florida Department of State say simply that voters should know who is behind political advertising efforts. VETERANS HALL OF FAME A SHAME? Drafters in the Veterans Affairs agency of a list of proposed inductees into a Veterans Hall of Fame were in retreat this week after a prominent African-American senator said it was offensive. A spokesman for Gov. Rick Scott said there would be a replacement list that will be more broad in its appeal. The Department of Veterans Affairs had put out the draft list, which could have up at this coming Tuesdays meeting of Scott and the Cabinet. That starting list was made up of 22 former governors, including Scott. But among those were six veterans of the Confederate States of America military, including one former governor, Abraham Allison, who was later convicted of and jailed for intimidating black people. On Friday, the list was no longer on the Cabinets agenda for Tuesday. BONDI QUESTIONED OVER FIRINGS The dismissals of a pair of insurance fraud investigators within of“ ce of Attorney General Pam Bondi has led to questions by Rep. Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee over why Bondi “ red Theresa Edwards and June Clarkson who had been lead foreclosure fraud attorneys in the of“ ce under former Attorney General Bill McCollum.Sotos call came as liberal interest group Progress Florida this week began circulating a petition trying to get the attorney generals inspector generals of“ ce to investigate the “ rings. Edwards and Clarkson and said publicly in newspaper stories that their boss, Richard Lawson, who heads up the economic crimes division in Bondis of“ ce, questioned them extensively about two mortgage processors that are under investigation by the of“ ce, Jacksonville-based Lender Processing Services and Tampa-based ProVest. Lawson told the News Service that he indeed asked about those two companies, after their lawyers expressed concerns about the way Edwards and Clarkson were handling the cases … and, in particular about a public presentation the two gave in a public forum that gave their impressions and theoriesŽ about the Lender Processing Services, and characterized certain companies as foreclosure mills. STORY OF THE WEEK: Citizens Property Insurance approves sinkhole premiums that could raise rates for some coastal residents by thousands of dollars are year. At least two state lawmakers want the legislature to hold public hearings over the matter. QUOTE OF THE WEEK : Its about all of those veterans out there, the rank and “ le veterans, all those accomplished veterans who didnt happen to get elected governor,Ž Florida Sen. Arthenia Joyner, D-Tampa, on a preliminary list of inductees to the Florida Veterans Hall of Fame, which included 21 past and one present Florida governor, but few decorated veterans … and no African Americans.

THURMON D CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT BY -sIRVENE KIMBREL AS DEPUTY CLERK (Seal, Wakulla County Cler k of the Circuit Court) July 21, 28, 2011 August 4, 11, 2011 TheWakulla News PER COPY75¢75¢ 3 QUARTERS COIN RETURN By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netTwo people are dead and a third is recovering after an apparent home invasion in Wakulla Station on Wednesday, March 30. 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.
