By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netWhen it seemed like the county commission was wrapping up the budget for the next fiscal year, Commissioner Mike Stewart announced he was having a change of heart. At the Aug. 4 budget workshop, which was to be the “ nal before the proposed budget came before a public hearing in September, Stewart said he was not happy with the current agreed upon Public Service Tax of 10 percent, which is on the purchase of electricity, metered or bottle gas, fuel oils and water. Ive lost a lot of sleep over this,Ž Stewart said. He asked the commission to consider lowering the tax to 5 percent and making it revenue neutral, meaning to decrease the millage rate by the same amount. Stewart said the residents are taking a beating and it should be lowered. I cant believe we went right to 10 percent,Ž Stewart said. At the June 21 meeting, Stewart voted in favor of the increase, along with commissioners Lynn Artz, Alan Brock and Randy Merritt. At that meeting, Stewart said he would like to see the millage reduced, but said if it is reduced by the same amount, it is a wash. If the commission reduced the PST and millage rate, it would need to reduce the budget by $1.2 million for next year by making cuts. Im going to “ ght it to the last minute,Ž Stewart said. Stewart said the commission cant keep government at the level it is currently. Merritt said the revenues estimated are extremely conservative and he expects the county will bring in more. He added that he wanted to gain some revenue and then look at reducing it. He also said he wished Stewart would have made these statements when the commission voted for the tax. Stewart said he did. You shoved it down our throat,Ž Stewart said to Merritt. Brock said he didnt agree with Stewarts suggestion and added that the county has raised taxes, but is bringing in less money.

On Thursday, Aug. 4, he answered that question by announcing his resignation, effective Oct. 1, to take a newly created position with the Florida Sheriffs Self Insurance Funds. Harvey has accepted the executive director position with the fund and was unanimously approved by the board of managers of the funds, established by the Florida Sheriffs Association. He will oversee the funds and provide operational and administrative direction to the board, who will serve as his boss. I will be the “ rst director in the history of these funds,Ž Sheriff Harvey said. And they are 32 years old.Ž Sheriff Harvey has been the Chairman of the Board of Managers for the funds for many years, which makes him a natural “ t for the new position,Ž said Sheriff Ben Johnson of Volusia County, the new president for the Florida Sheriffs Association. We look forward to working with him in this new capacity.Ž Harvey said he applied for the job in June and the list was narrowed down to seven. Once he was selected as the top candidate, the board voted. Harvey said he did not attend the meeting and the wait was nerve racking. Not like waiting on Sopchoppy to come in,Ž Harvey said and gave a laugh.Prior to submitting his application, Harvey had decided not to seek re-election, saying he was ready for a different path and his family did not want to go through another election. The last election in 2008 came down to 48 votes between Harvey and Charlie Creel, who has already announced his candidacy for the upcoming election. Continued on Page 2A masterChef challenger Sopchoppy’s Christine Corley makes it to eight on the popular TV showRay Gray says disciplinary report is retaliationBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netParks and Recreation Director Ray Gray was written up for insubordination on July 21 and said he did not know anything about it until last week. In the disciplinary report, Interim County Administrator Tim Barden wrote that there was concern over Grays performance of his duties and he listed three issues: lack of accessibility/management oversight, sheriff contract for mowing and outside employment. According to Gray, this report is retaliation stemming from a harassment and hostile work environment complaint “ led against Barden and County Commissioner Mike Stewart on July 14. Its simple retaliation,Ž Gray said. In the complaint sent to Of“ ce and Management and Budget Coordinator Debbie DuBose, who oversees personnel issues, Stewart, Barden and the other commissioners, Gray stated, The continuous backstabbing and belittling, calling meetings under the cloak of secrecy, and slandering my department and me personally is nonproductive.Ž Bardens memo stated that a meeting between DuBose, Gray and Barden was scheduled for July 21, which Gray did not attend. Gray said he met with Barden with a volunteer present on July 20, but Barden refused to meet with the witness there. At that meeting, Gray said he did not receive any documents and nothing was presented to him. That same day, Gray said he delivered a letter requesting medical leave under the Family Medical Leave Act to DuBose. The reason was stress related to working in a hostile environment, Gray said. The next day, Gray was on leave. He said he has a letter from DuBose stating that she received his letter regarding medical leave. Gray said he was never noti“ ed of the meeting scheduled for July 21 and said he has yet to see the memo and has not signed any disciplinary report. He added that the county did not follow its own procedures, because the report should have been presented to him in private and wouldnt become public record until he was noti“ ed. It cant be public record until I see it,Ž Gray said. In Bardens memo included with the disciplinary action, he stated that Gray had a lack of accessibility and doesnt maintain of“ ce hours. Gray said he is available after 5 p.m. most nights during the week and on Saturdays for the different practices and programs that take place at those times. He also said either he or staff is available throughout the day. Continued on Page 2ABoard may reduce Public Service TaxBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netUltimately it was an adult version of the classic grilled cheese and tomato soup combination that was her downfall. Contestants on the Fox show MasterChefŽ were whittled down to six on Aug. 2, which meant the end of the road for Sopchoppy resident Christine Corley. I walked out with con“ dence in myself and my food,Ž Corley says. Corley was chosen out of 20,000 applicants to appear on the show, which featured home chefs competing for the title of Master Chef and $250,000. She stayed on week after week of facing various cooking challenges, ranging from making lunch for hundreds of hungry children to cooking steak three different ways having to nail the right temperature for medium rare, medium and well done. Nobody thought little old Christine Corley from Sopchoppy could make it,Ž Corley says. I always said I was going to make something of myself, but I dont think anybody expected this.Ž The last challenge Corley participated in centered around childhood memories and the contestants were asked to come up with a different take on grilled cheese and tomato soup. Corley says this was a dif“ cult topic for her because she had been away from her son for about two months, who is 22 months old now and was much younger at the time of “ lming. Also, it brought back memories from her own childhood. I had a pretty hard upbringing,Ž Corley says.

Page 2A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1ASpeaking of that close election, Harvey said, A champion wins on a bad day.Ž Harvey has been elected nine times and served for 35 years as sheriff. He said he wanted to “ nish out the term, which ends in January 2013, but the job wouldnt wait. It was just, you need to do it now or its gone,Ž Harvey said. Harvey said it was a dif“ cult decision to make, but this was a great opportunity. These people are like your family,Ž Harvey said of the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce and the county. You dont leave your family. But I feel like the family will be OK.Ž Harvey has recommended Undersheriff Donnie Crum to serve as interim sheriff. Gov. Rick Scott will make appoint the replacement. It was a no brainer,Ž Harvey said. Harvey said Crums credentials are impeccable and Crum will not seek election. We will a seamless transition,Ž Harvey said. Harvey has been in law enforcement for 39 years and was the youngest sheriff ever elected at the age of 26. He is also currently the longest serving sheriff in Florida. Harvey said he is proud that Wakulla County is one of the safest counties in Florida. Were very aggressive,Ž Harvey said. Weve put a lot of people in jail.Ž And the WCSO and community does not tolerate violent crimes, Harvey said. He added that they have a low crime rate. Anybody can talk negative,Ž Harvey said. But the numbers dont lie.Ž Harvey said he gives the employees the equipment, training and resources necessary to do the job, but they deserve the credit. Ive got some good people that are out there working,Ž Harvey said. In his time as sheriff, Harvey said he has also tried to diversify the of“ ce by hiring the “ rst female of“ cer and African-American of“ cer in the county. I leave behind an outstanding organization,Ž Harvey said. Harvey said he is looking forward to the new job and new challenges and getting a different perspective. Harvey has been involved with the Risk Management Fund since its inception in 1977. He attended the Florida Sheriffs Association Conference that year and an item of concern for most of the sheriffs was liability issues and insurance. So the sheriffs developed a publicentity risk pool in 1978. He was a charter board member of the liability, automotive, workers compensation and healthcare funds and was elected chairman of the liability, auto and healthcare funds in 1993. Im the only living, founding member of the sheriffs self-insurance pool,Ž Harvey said. Recently, the board hired a consultant who suggested it hire an executive director. The board agreed and Harvey decided to apply for the job. It will be a great honor working for the Board of Managers of the Sheriffs Self Insurance Funds and remaining involved with so many sheriffs that I deeply admire and respect, a job that will keep giving back to the state and Wakulla County, my home,Ž Harvey said.Continued from Page 1 He said he also attends commission meetings, workshops and staff meetings. Im not hiding,Ž he said. The second issue was the contract between Gray and the sheriff for mowing. Barden stated in the memo that he 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. Barden stated that the lack of accessibility 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 administrator. Gray said the county commission approved the contract and modi“ cations have been made since then. While Gray was on approved leave, Gray said Barden attempted to change the contract to add more mowing sites. They added sites to an agreement weve been working on forever,Ž Gray said. He said the additional sites created too much work for one crew and the sheriffs of“ ce pulled the inmates from the direction of the Parks and Recreation Department back under the sheriff. Gray said the crew being removed from the maintenance schedule for his department has caused problems with keeping up with mowing and there have been some complaints. Barden also listed an issue with Grays outside employment. According to the memo, Barden was told of the outside employment by former County Administrator Ben Pingree in November 2010 before he resigned. Since then, Barden has requested Gray provide documentation of how he was working 40 hours for the county. Gray said he has told each administrator of his outside employment and filled out the necessary forms each year. He said he was told all those forms, except for his position as school board member, were gone and couldnt be found. According to Bardens memo and one submitted by former Public Services Director Doug Jones in May, Gray submitted outside employment request forms in March 2010, for Gray Services I Inc., Ray and Jody Gray, Wakulla County School Board, Amazing Tropical Interiors and Title Loan Services Inc. In the memo, Jones recommended approving the school board job, Ray and Jody Gray and Tropical Interiors. Gray said his outside employment does not con” ict with his job as parks and recreation director. He has managers and supervisors who handle day-to-day operations. Gray said he continues to be parks and recreation director, a position he has held for 17 years, because he loves what he does. Nobody can do with this program what Ive done,Ž Gray said. Gray said he doesnt know what is going to happen with this situation and said he doesnt want to sue the county. Lets just all do our jobs and be done with it,Ž Gray said. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAt the Sopchoppy City Commission meeting this week, city commissioners decided to jump on board with the countys recent decision of charging a $196 solid waste assessment to every household. The city commission will approve an ordinance at a future meeting asking for the city to be included in the assessment. The county has no authority to impose the fee on the city residents, said City Attorney Dan Cox. However, if the city does not want to be included then it would need to provide that service to its residents. Cox said it is easier to simply have the county do it. Commissioner David Edwards said the $196 assessment, which includes weekly curbside pickup of garbage and recyclables, ends up being cheaper for those who currently pay for curbside pickup, which is about $300 a year. Edwards said he didnt think the city would receive as good of a deal as the one provided to the county by Waste Pro. Wed have to strike a deal for 400 people,Ž Edwards said. You dont get good numbers that way.Ž City Clerk Jackie Lawhon also said if the city doesnt provide the service, people might end up burning or burying their trash. The city will vote to adopt the ordinance at a special called meeting on Aug. 22 at 6:30 p.m. In other matters: € The city will be submitting an application for a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant to improve drainage at Gulf Street and Park Avenue. Andy Easton, who is helping the city prepare the grant, said the drainage at those streets is a real issue and there is a fear that a heavy rain could wash the road out. He added that engineering has been completed on the project, which increases their chances for being awarded the grant. The city will submit the application on Aug. 15. € Also at the meeting, Mayor Colleen Skipper said she felt the city needed an of“ cial logo that included the commission members and city staff. One that could go on stationery, as well as email correspondences. It lets people know who our of“ cials are,Ž Skipper said. Skipper said the city can get an electronic logo for $90. I think for $90, the city should be able to move in that direction,Ž Skipper said. The commissioners agreed and said they would discuss the idea at the budget workshop. € The city will hold a special meeting on Aug. 22 at 6:30 p.m. to adopt the solid waste assessment, as well as to hear from Paula Arnold, of Quest Management Consultants, who has been developing personnel policies and standard operating guidelines for the city. The commission will vote to adopt these procedures and policies at this meeting. Following this meeting, the commission will hold a budget workshop to discuss the 2011-2012 budget.SOPCHOPPYCity will follow county lead on $196 assessment for garbageRather than try to negotiate its own deal to provide garbage service for its 400 residents, the city will go along with the county Sheri Harvey will resign on Oct. 1JENNIFER JENSENSheriff David Harvey answers a question at his press conference last week to announce his resignation.

Continued from Page 1A Merritt agreed and said by the county keeping the millage rate the same, it is basically staying revenue neutral. In keeping the millage rate at 8.75, the county expects to see a 9-percent decrease in ad valorem revenue for this upcoming year. Merritt suggested dropping the PST to 5 percent and maintaining the millage rate of 8.75. This would mean a $577,000 cut. This would mean a $217,00 cut for the BOCC, about $300,000 for the sheriffs of“ ce, $20,100 for the tax collector, $28,000 for the property appraiser and $12,500 for the clerk. Stewart said he would give in to that option. We all have got to suck this up together,Ž Stewart said. Barden said these additional cuts would mean a loss of more employees and cutting programs. Brock then asked what programs Stewart was looking at cutting. If yall want me to be the scapegoat, thats “ ne,Ž Stewart said. Stewart said he felt the commission makes suggestions on what to cut, but the county administrator should make those cuts. Brock disagreed and felt it was the boards responsibility. Merritt agreed with Brock and said, I think we should make decisions and not hide behind Tim.Ž Stewart suggested looking at cutting or reducing all the programs and services the county is not mandated to provide. If the state wants the health department, why do we have to fund it?Ž Stewart asked. Stewart said there are also several court items that could be cut, such as funding to the guardian ad litem program. Weve always done it because its feel good, touchy feely stuff,Ž Stewart said. Brock said the county cant cut those programs that only have one employee, such as veterans services. So when you reduce one person, what does that mean?Ž Brock asked. He added that he isnt against laying off staff if its needed, but cuts need to be made where there are multiple employees. While Stewart said he was losing sleep over raising taxes and implementing new ones, Brock said, Im going to lose sleep over the programs were cutting.Ž The commission decided to meet for another budget workshop on Aug. 16 at 3 p.m. to discuss services not mandated.Board may reduce Public Service TaxIf the commission reduces the PST and millage rate, it would need to reduce the budget by $1.2 million.

Few states have been hit as hard as Florida. Unfortunately, there are those in Congress who want to continue this assault on home ownership by eliminating the Mortgage Interest Deduction (MID) … an invaluable part of our tax code for nearly a hundred years. The debt deal leaves open the possibility that the MID could be eliminated as a means to raise money for the government. This is a tax hike on middle class families, seniors and those who are barely able to afford their homes. These are people who are still part of Floridas economic engine. Eliminating the MID will certainly be the hair that broke the camels back in many cases … throwing families into foreclosure and out of their homes. Home ownership has long been a backbone of the American Dream that has already taken a serious hit. We cannot afford to see this pillar of economic prosperity harmed further. I encourage our federal representatives here in Florida to support policies that preserve the mortgage interest deduction and help Florida families get into and stay in the homes for which they work so hard. Respectfully submitted,Anne Woodward AhrendtFormer Wakulla County Property Appraiser Florida Licensed Real Estate Salespersonanneahrendt@comcast.netEditor, The News: I would like to say thank you to the Wakulla County Emergency Medical Services for the kindness and care that you gave to me on June 20-21. Near midnight is a scary time to become ill, but you arrived quickly and kept me calm on the way to the hospital. To the 911 operator that night, your voice was the link I needed until help arrived. Thank you also. I would also like to thank the team that made the trip on Sunday morning July 3, you were so calm and quickly made the decision that I needed to return to the hospital. We all take you for granted, but I would like to say that you are the best. My family and I appreciate the quality and care that all of you give to Wakulla County. Adene Beal abeal 7777 3@aol.com Editor, The News: When I think about government and the role that taxes play in governance, I think about where I want to live and how I want to live. I would like to live in a community with good roads, safe bridges, clean water and quality schools. I want to live in a county where emergency and law enforcement personnel have the resources and staff to respond to citizens in a timely and effective manner. In the place where I would like to live, city and county parks would be wellmaintained and safe with varied opportunities for recreation including walking paths, tennis courts, and other play areas such as soccer “ elds. While I am on the topic of a community where I would want to live, I would also add in a few amenities such as sidewalks and bike lanes that would further encourage residents to enjoy the natural beauty of our county. Recent commentary written by the Wakulla GOPŽ or Republican Party suggested that Wakulla County Commissioners take the easy way out … They Tax.Ž After I did a few deep breathing exercises and counted to 10 to give myself a little moment to calm down, I began to think about why my neighbors on the other side of the political aisle might feel this way. The GOP writer cited recent comments from a July 28 WCTV story on taxes in Wakulla County, Florida Tax Watch CEO Dominic Calabro says the county can do a better job making cuts.Ž 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. Im not sure what county Calabro refers to in his statements. It is not the Wakulla where I reside and pay taxes. In Wakulla, weve been cutting county expenses for some time now. County employees have been furloughed. My Republican neighbors cite recently approved and proposed taxes for the county in their indictment of the work our Commissioners are doing: 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 After reading and researching a little more about this issue, I began to think that maybe my Republican neighbors want one of two things in the community where they live. They either want to live off the grid without the services and amenities that are the hallmarks of a civilized modern society OR they want others (maybe the governance elves, whoever they may be?) to pay for such things. In the article Wakulla County Commissioners take the easy way out,Ž posted online Aug. 1 at wakullagop.org, the writer refers to playing the blame gameŽ with prior administrations … on the local and national levels. I am not interested in laying blame. I would prefer to study HOW leaders have solved problems in the past rather than focus on the prior mistakes. It is far more useful to consider how a problem may have been resolved than to spend additional time bemoaning the problem itself. On a national level, my study of the debt crisis has taken me back to the 1930s to refresh my memory on such prior problem resolutions as the New Deal, the Works Project Administration, and the Social Security Act of 1935. We are not going to cut our way out of a recession. It cant be done on the national level. Nor can it be done on the local level. How do we grow an economy? We invest in it. How do we nurture and sustain a vibrant community? We invest in it. In Wakulla, we are going to have to decide what kind of community we want. I know I want to live in a county where the fire, ambulance and police can respond to me and all my neighbors quickly and effectively with all the resources needed. Taxes are an investment in my community. I think my Republican neighbors view government as a bloated, overweight monster that eats tax dollars with no return on the investment. I view government as a green tender seedling that requires careful cultivation. I view my tax dollars as my investment in the community where I want to live. To me, good governance is like farming. Whether the farmers tend cattle, grow food or cultivate ” owers … the agrarian endeavor needs sustaining resources. When I plant a seed in my garden, I know I have to tend it … and provide resources for that seed to grow. The reward I reap from what I sow far exceeds the initial investment. My tax dollars are an investment in my community that I consider seeds well-sown. I thank my Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners for being visionary public stewards of the governance gardenŽ who will help grow us out of these lean “ scal times. Rachel Sutz PientaChair, Wakulla Democratic Executive CommitteeEditor, The News:I think its fair to assume most people understand how inef“ cient our Wakulla government has become. When the economy is robust, the inef“ ciency is almost transparent and little attention is paid. It troubles me that as Wakulla County tax revenues were under performing for several years, the appropriate adjustments were consciously ignored. I “ nd it prophetic that only one commissioner repeatedly voted and voiced his commitment for “ scal constraint and accountability, that being the past chairman. His concerns regarding inef“ ciencies included wasteful spending, favoritism, lack of accountability, policy violations, etc. These same concerns have now become the focal point for a growing number of citizens, particularly with the signi“ cant tax increases recently imposed by our commissioners. To think that raising taxes is the solution to inef“ ciency seems odd to me. Continuing to fund inef“ ciency is by de“ nition inef“ cient. Increased efficiency means doing more with less and thats what our Government needs to do. I dont mean do less with less or do the same with less, I mean do more with less. Plainly put, we need more services with less taxes, thats ef“ ciency and ef“ ciency leads to growth and growth leads to prosperity. It all begins with ef“ ciency. This September (the public hearing originally scheduled for Aug. 15 has been canceled), our commissioners will decide whether or not to double … yes, double … the tax on guests visiting Wakulla County via the Tourist Development Tax or bed tax.Ž Last year, 78 percent of the total bed tax revenue went to overhead and compensation for a single parttime position. This part-time position paid $17,000 in 2008 and now pays $37,000 (health insurance included) with added thousands paid for additional hoursŽ (at $35 per hour), plus perks (of“ ce space, expense reimbursement, travel, memberships, etc.) worth yet more thousands. Further increasing pay for this part-time position is currently proposed and will be funded by the additional bed tax if passed. Ive heard some try to justify the bed tax by using the argument that its not a tax paid directly by those living in Wakulla County, but rather on those visiting our county. Id suggest the basis for this justi“ cation … that is, its acceptable because its paid by someone elseŽ … is extremely harmful to our society. Dare I say sel“ sh? We need to remember were all citizens of this county, this state and this country. Steven Fults Sr. Panacea Editor, The News: I have watched with interest the letters written in support of the TDC. It seems that all supporting letters have come from individuals having received big bucks from that organization. As a retired businessman, I am questioning OUR Return on Investment! Additional monies are now being requested in the form of BED TAX. Who is kidding whom in this scenario? This organization is run very shoddily and unprofessionally Issues abound within the TDC, far too numerous to address in one letter. However, in an effort to gain a grasp on these issues, a rather sizable group of citizens met for seven hours and outlined over twenty concerns. At the request of the BOCC at its July 18 meeting to submit questions directly to the TDC and its director, last week 13 questions were emailed to the members. Since the questions were phrased in some cases, check YesŽ or No,Ž they shouldnt take more than 15 minutes to answer. Then, we were informed, it may be too late for the TDC to respond by their Aug. 11 meeting. When you have a Board of Directors, its been my experience that the chairperson sets the agenda and runs the meetings. In February, the TDC Board elected a 10th member to the board. However, the BOCC rejected that member due to state statute. One member then volunteered to become a non-voting member. How do you become a non voting board member? You become a guest! This is a legal question and another example of shoddy leadership. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have ” owed through this organization with little to show for it. They have a website that doesnt appear to have been updated, some links do not work and video clips, in my opinion, are of poor quality. Citizens, your monies are being spent on a cause that in one report clearly states, This area is too closely linked to Tallahassee to have an image of its own as a Tourism destination.Ž Bed Tax can be a good thing if it is used for such projects as maintaining, developing and upgrading the Civic and Welcome Centers, County parks, even to building a pool, not to pay the director a higher salary! Our BOCC is too willing to accept mediocrity as long as its citizens are willing to excuse it. Charles Hickman Crawfordville Editor, The News: I am a citizen, who, for some time now, has been concerned with the Tourist Development Council. I belong to a loose group of citizens who have the same concerns. We have organized under a loose corporate entity to facilitate our organization, correspondence and efforts at making our concerns public. That entity is www. wakulla411.com, a new group to handle tips and such, voice citizen concerns, one of which is the Tourist Development Council. Because this group is new, it might be unfamiliar to some, and thats why Im writing. The TDC is supposed to get tourists to visit Wakulla and to enhance the local businesses with Bed TaxŽ money collected from local hotels. For many years, the TDC has been run with top heavy administration, with 70 to 90 percent of the tax going to the executive director, with the county kicking in even more for expenses, overhead, etc. We started getting concerned with the amounts going to everything but tourist development. Recently Mike Stewart directed citizens to compile questions for the TDC. You can see Stewarts request on youtube.com, searching Mike Stewart TDC.Ž Our loose group, after much work, compiled our questions of the TDC under the www.wakulla411.com banner, to make correspondence easier. Commissioner Alan Brock, however, questioned the group, the groups aims and timing,Ž noting that our questions were a bit late and 1) refused to answer the questions, and 2) said there was no rush because he (didnt) plan to follow up again on the subject over the weekend.Ž Were newly organized, not some anonymous cabal threatening the security of the county as Commissioner Brock seems to think, but a group concerned that the TDC is run for what its set up to do, namely have more tourism in the county. Were concerned that its not happening. Simple, right? Have concerns, express your concerns civilly and respectfully, and expect answers from the folks who asked for questions, solicited them in public even. Citizens have concerns, are directed to formulate questions, then are ignored or put off when the questions are asked. The TDC meeting is Thursday, Aug. 11. Well be there with our questions. In person, in the open, per Stewarts request and expecting Brocks answers. Hugh Taylor CrawfordvilleREADERS WRITE:Taxes are an investment in community Taxes wont solve government ine ciency ank you to emergency medical services Mortgage interest deduction is neededMORE ON THE TDC CONTROVERSY:Citizen group submits 13 questions Bed tax provides needed fundingA comment left online at thewakullanews.com: It isnt a stretch of ones imagination to see that visitors enjoying the great open spaces of Wakulla County might actually want to spend a night or two here. So just imagine, then, why anybody cannot see that the tax that is added to their overnight stay, be it in a motel, “ sh camp, RV Park or hotel, bene“ ts this county. What does not make sense? Tourism is Wakulla Countys only viable industry. Each and every person in this county should put on a happy smile and greet visitors with all the courtesy they expect. Theres more: These visitors also deserve the best services anybody can imagine. A bed tax does provide much needed funding to market Wakulla County. But wait. Theres more: It eventually could also provide a much needed course in visitor services that should be part of our countys economic development plan. That will be the case when we have an increase in seasonal visitation, between October and June each year. Madeleine H. Carr Crawfordville Wakulla411 formed over issues


www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 – Page 5AEditor, The News: Well, folks, its here: Obama Socialism by way of a MONOPOLIZED MANDATORY GARBAGE SERVICE! It is pure and simple SOCIALISM! We are being told what is in our best interest by “ ve people out of the 26,000 plus people who live here in Wakulla County. These “ ve commissioners voted into of“ ce to make decisions on our behalf have tunnel vision as to what is in our best interest. How can voting in a tax be good for me? My wife and I make a trip to the dump every “ ve or six weeks. I bring two large garbage bags plus recyclables. I stop at our daughters home and get her one bag. I put our recyclables into their bins then go to dumpster with our trash. I pay my $4 to $6 and leave. I dont know what school these “ ve people went to but the ones I attended taught me simple math. At 8.6 trips per year at $6 = $51.60 (remember this is for two homes). Thirty-four miles roundtrip from home to daughters home to land“ ll comes to $6.40 (at $4 gas). Thats 8.6 trips per year at $6.40 = $55.04 a year. Add $51.60 + $55.04 = $106.64. Again this is for two households! Because of their purely SOCIALIST AGENDA, my family is being forced to pay $392 per year. This comes to a difference of $285.36 (again, this is for two homes) more than we now pay. This is an increase of more than 66 percent per month and an increase of more than 792 percent per year. The countys lawyer should know that this could be against Floridas USURY laws. Every time I go to the dump, I get a receipt I could easily put together a documented list of expenses on what we pay each year. Six years ago I went to the landfill with six full cans of sorted colored glass from cleaning up this old home we bought and when I asked where were the recycle bins for glass the attendant replied, It was too expensive to recycle glass, just put it all in the dumpster.Ž Shortly after that visit I wrote the “ rst of many Letters to the Editor of The Wakulla News and even spoke before the BOCC on the advantages of having a recycle program here and by using county inmates to do the sorting for us. All of my words fell on deaf ears. While I was speaking at the BOCC meeting they were up there drinking water, talking amongst themselves and just not listening. I must admit that all the BOCC members then are not who are there now, but one is. Recycling is a multi-billion dollar industry and are the recycling pro“ ts made by WASTE PRO to be funneled back into Wakulla Countys pocketbook? If they are then by all means, everyone of us should recycle all we can! If not then just put it all into one can … no garbage bags, no sorting of recyclables, make them earn their money! In ending; Pure socialism … the few rule over the many! J. Pierotti CrawfordvilleMore lettersEditor, The News: I am in prison and have subscribed to our local paper for two years now. I want to thank you for timely delivery, and it is nice to read about local events. This allows me to feel in a small way I am still part of a wonderful community. Richard Rice Wakulla Correctional Institution Editor, The News: LADIES and GENTLEMEN of WAKULLA COUNTY: I have been asked on several occasions why I was “ red. My termination letter from Lindsay Stevens (not Ben Pingree, as required) stated for possible inspection violations and poor management.Ž When I asked what possible inspection violations and poor management meant, I got … you know what it means.Ž I never got a real answer. When the Florida Unemployment Compensation asked these questions from me and from Wakulla County BOCC, it was investigated and determined discharge for misconduct was not connected to the work.Ž I heard the best answer the other day, Luther knows how to read and write!Ž The county administration did not like that because they want an employee to do what they say instead of following Florida laws. The real reason I was “ red was because I found out money from the Building Trust Fund was being used for other expenses. Everything I have been accused of, I have rebutted and/or addressed in a court of law at the Division of Administrative Hearings with the case against Larry Noles at the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. At the July 18, BoCC meeting, Tim Barden told the citizens and commissioners that the present Building Of“ cial resigned to take another job. Our interim county administrator asked the BOCC to vote and approve Rodney Revell as the new Building Of“ cial of Wakulla County, which the BOCC did. Revell doesnt have a Building Of“ cial license with the State DBPR. On July 20, I contacted Barden and asked for a meeting to discuss returning to Wakulla County as the Building Of“ cial. The appointment for the meeting was set for July 21 at 2 p.m. I explained to Barden at that meeting that all I would need to do was to “ le a Financial DisclosureŽ form with the Supervisor of Elections and I would be legal to perform the duties as Wakulla County Building Of“ cial. I have all the proper licenses and all the FEMA certi“ cates completed. Barden informed me that as long as he is there, I would NEVER return to employment with Wakulla County because I was “ red with cause.Ž What is the causeŽ? Without a full-time licensed Building Of“ cial for Wakulla County, the county of“ ce of Building Inspections is closed. No inspections, no plans reviews can be performed, no permits issued, no Certi“ cate of Occupancies, no Certi“ cate of Completion, etc. can be performed. Barden said it would be very expensive to hire Leon County and their Building Of“ cial until Revell receives his Provisional Building Officials license, but Wakulla County would pay this cost of more than $100/hour for their services. How many extra furlough days will this cost? It takes two to six months for a license to be issued from the time you apply for a provisional license. Again, who is acting with poor management? Me? Or Wakulla County administration? I would have accepted the same salary I was making when I was “ red, accepted the furlough days the same as everyone else, restore my bene“ ts and performed any legal instructions. I would have let the courts resolve any back pay and back bene“ ts issues. And in return, I would be treated fairly and not be dismissed without proper cause. This is another example of wasteful spending by our commissioners and administration. How much is Bardens decision going to cost Wakulla County taxpayers? I put aside my differences with the administration leadership to make this offer whereas Bardens attitude is that he doesnt care what it costs, its not his money. Since I cant work for Wakulla County BOCC as an employee, maybe I should consider running for county commissioner instead. What do you think? Luther E. Council Jr. Crawfordville, Fl.Former Building O cial o ers to return Socialism arrives as garbage service Only one Earth, take care of itEditor, The News: There is a new edition to the Wakulla area … a baby manatee. The calf was photographed close-up by a curious kayaker tourist,Ž harassed by boaters hawking and gawking. The curious kayaker put the camera under the water in the babys face as it was trying to surface. Almost run over by an eager pontoon captain trying to feel a breeze going way above idle speed … as are most of the vessels in this 103 degree heat. Our river is not what it used to be. Neither is our world. Soon it will all look the same. Wakulla, listen well, our resources are sacred … protect them. Tourists are we all on this planet Earth. Protect her well, she is the only one we get. Plant the seed! Or you might as well barbecue that baby manatee thats trying to surface for air with cameras in its face and propellers ” ying over its mother while its trying to nurse. The mother will not leave its newborn and the boats have no mercy. Let them be. Shut off the motors. Close the navigable river to non-motorized vessels only. Our Indian ancestors drank these waters, lived by these waters, and lived from these waters. We are not so different. Only our demise will be of our own doing. Water is life. Wakulla means Mysterious Waters.

Knowing that I have animals in the house, she mentioned that she was highly allergic to cats, and some dogs, and that she wasnt sure how her 1-yearold would react since he was afraid of dogs. Well, neither our cat nor our dog were going to be banned from the house, so I told her to load up on allergy medicine, and let her know that we would deal with her sons anxieties. Maya likes to sit on the guest room window sill to observe things going on, so I closed the guest room for a few weeks, dusted everything, and washed the bed linens, blankets etc. to rid the room of all the cat dander and hair. I was of“ cially ready for company. Tucker nosily checked out the newcomers when we got in from the airport. When he licked my great nephews hand, the kid immediately scrambled into his Dads lap, eyeing the dog with huge eyes, waving his hand around and excitedly trying to tell us something in baby talk. My niece immediately went for a washcloth to wipe his kissedŽ hand, and I thought, Oh boy, typical German clean freak, were going to have to get over the dirt and germ issue,Ž and I told her so. Tucker seemed to sense the childs hesitance, and backed away. Maya kept her distance, acting upset when her household changes routine, and company really isnt appreciated as far as she is concerned. The next morning, I formally introduced dog and toddler. I was impressed how careful my yo-yo dog was not to jump up, waiting for instructions. I got Jayden to pet him, and scratch his back. The kid squealed with delight when Tucker rewarded him with lavish kisses, and much to his mothers dismay, held his hands out for more kisses. We were not really afraid of dogs anymore. For the next three weeks, Jayden and his woofŽ as he called Tucker, were inseparable. I was really proud of Tucker, who instinctively sensed that he couldnt play rough as he does with the older kids. Or did it have something to do with proper socialization, and Tucker being part of our packŽ from day one? I would like to think so. This made me think about recent stories about dogs that were starving right under their owners nose, and dogs left chained without food, shelter or water, dying a horrible death. How many pet owners are there that have no idea whether their animals are hurting or sick, because they are left in the yard without getting any attention, love or compassion, never allowed inside to be part of a family? Too many I am afraid. Dog is supposed to be mans best friend, rather than a beast of burden and treated as such. I recently told a friend that I really love coming home for lunch or after work, Tucker wagging his tail, all excited to see me, bringing me one of his toys so I can play with him. I never think of him as a pain, but how much I would miss him if he wasnt around anymore, just like he would miss me if I wasnt in his life anymore. Just about every day animals are brought to or picked up by Animal Control. Most of the time nobody ever comes looking for them to bring them back home, which makes me wonder what kind of home they had to begin with. Did someone love them when they were a cute little puppy, and then grow tired of them? Did anyone ever really care about them? CHAT members visit elementary schools every year, and CHAT also distributes The Kind News, a magazine introducing children to responsible pet ownership, to all third and “ fth graders each year, so that hopefully, in time, the cycle of animal abuse and neglect can be broken. I commend CHAT volunteers for the time they spend with our cats and dogs at the Adoption Center, giving them attention and affection they may not have ever known. If you are considering making a pet part of your family, come see the many homeless dogs and cats at our Adoption Center. Please spay or neuter your pets to stop unwanted litters.

Page 8A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comeducation news from local schoolsSchoolSpecial to The News Wakulla High School yearbook staff brought home three awards for WHS at this years Yearbook University in Gainesville. Nineteen schools and 73 students attended the three-day workshop, which teaches all aspects of creating a yearbook, including design, photography, leadership and writing. WHS won awards for Best Cover, Best Layout Spread and Best Mod. Mod (modules) are strategically placed elements that create a sense of consistency throughout the yearbook. Attending the workshop were Sponsor Hunter Tucker, Editor Payton Baze, and seniors Blair Mathers and Sarah Gray, junior Kaitlyn Furnish (co-editor), sophomores Shana Furnish, Cary Mathers and Emily Rudd, and freshman Bailee Baze. According to WHS teacher Hunter Tucker, who oversees the yearbook staff, each summer when the students go to the camp they learn so much, and they always leave with the cover and theme “ nished. Tucker added that the students always have lots of fun and it helps them get to know each other better so that they can work better as a group. The intensive workshop began with orientation, then the rest of the day was devoted to dreamingŽ a yearbook theme. Day two was sessions on interviewing, photography, business and marketing, and writing, and special sessions for editors and intensive photography. Participants learned and then created a yearbook spread, which led to homework. The workshops “ nal day brought each schools theme development presentations and graduation. Yearbook University Professor Wallace said, Everything you have learned at the workshop and in yearbook class is important. Cover all students, take outstanding photos, design cool layouts, but dont forget to have fun in the process.ŽWHS yearbook sta wins three awards Special to The News Wakullas newest educators kicked off their school year by attending Survival Training facilitated by Cindy Loney, Crawfordville Elementary School Teacher.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFrom FWC NewsWhen humans and “ sh were evolving together, catching and consuming “ sh was a matter of survival. Later, catches offered something to barter or sell. Now, most people “ sh recreationally. Regardless of the purpose behind “ shing, big catches stroke the anglers ego. Today, recreational “ shing has an annual $7.5 billion economic impact in Florida. Habitat conservation and regulations help sustain these “ sheries, but with greater demand it is increasingly important to protect and recycle the largest trophy “ sh by also promoting voluntary catch-and-release. Floridas Big CatchŽ angler recognition program helps stroke the ego of successful anglers by allowing them to show off their prowess. The Big Catch program provides a framable, fullcolor certi“ cate and window sticker for anglers who catch any of 33 species of listed freshwater “ shes that exceed a minimum length or weight. If people catch five qualifying fish of the same species, they are recognized as a Specialist. If they report “ ve qualifying “ sh of different species, they become a Master Angler, and if they take and report qualifying “ sh representing 10 different species, they are an Elite Angler. Young people can enter “ sh that are approximately 25 percent smaller than adult qualifying sizes. Big Catch also encourages anglers to “ sh for a variety of species and to travel to locate them, while promoting appropriate catch and release. A new set of TrophyCatchŽ marks and awards are in the works for trophy bass anglers. The TrophyCatch angler recognition program will be the hallmark of the long-term Florida Black Bass Management Plan, which the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved in June. The FWC intends to ensure that Florida is the undisputed bass “ shing capital of the world. TrophyCatch will be a full-fledged initiative to document largemouth bass caught, and preferably released, throughout Florida that are heavier than 8 pounds. Incremental rewards and recognition will be provided to anglers reporting bass in the 8-10, 10-12, 12-13 and greater than 13pound categories. The anticipated rollout for TrophyCatch is October 2012. This program, driven by private dollars, can substantially enhance Florida bass “ shing by addressing ecological issues and encouraging recycling of trophy bass, but it will also have a great social and economic impact,Ž said Tom Champeau, director of the FWCs Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. Biologists are developing specific handling guidelines to ensure anglers do the best possible job of effectively releasing these “ sh while providing the FWC with valuable research and marketing information. FWC representatives will certify bass over 13 pounds caught from October through April (beginning in 2012) for entry into the Florida Trophy Bass Hall of Fame. Sponsors, corporate partners and the media will provide incentives to encourage reporting and releasing all such catches. Fisheries biologists will use TrophyCatch reports to identify Floridas best bass fisheries to determine which management practices (e.g., habitat and aquatic plant management, regulations, stocking) are most effective in creating trophy “ sheries. VISIT FLORIDA and the FWC will work with the media to use this information to establish Florida as a prime trophy bass “ shing destination. Incorporating social media and online mapping resources will make this information widely available to the public and create a buzz as anglers report new trophies and post photos. Such recognition will increase both resident and nonresident angler participation and enjoyment, tackle and license sales, tourism and help create the next generation that cares about our natural resources and outdoor recreational heritage. In Florida, more recreational fishing days are spent on fresh water (24.4 million days by 1.4 million anglers) than on salt water. Largemouth bass are the most sought-after species not only in Florida but also in the nation. Bass anglers alone generate $1.25 billion for our economy, supporting thousands of jobs. C onsequently, promoting and safeguarding Floridas trophy bass fisheries is good for everyone. Tim ONeil, an FWC marketing expert and liaison to the Wildlife Foundation of Florida … a public-support organization affiliated with the FWC … said that the FWC and the Foundation want to work with the sport“ shing industry. TrophyCatch is in its infancy but will grow quickly,Ž ONeil said. We want to work with the best and brightest in the corporate world to make this a win-win-win for the environment, anglers and industry.Ž Learn more at MyFWC.com/Fishing (select Freshwater FishingŽ then Big CatchŽ). Send suggestions for ways to enhance these partner-driven programs to Bob.Wattendorf@MyFWC.com. With a record of trophy catches, we hope to reaf“ rm our status as the Fishing Capital of the World and become the undisputed Bass Fishing Capital of the World. Capt. Jody Campbells weekly “ shing column, From the Dock,Ž should return next week. Big catches still stroke angler egosPHOTO COURTESY OF STACY TWIGGSBig trophy bass like this 14-pounder, caught this year on the Kissimmee Chain by Stacy Twiggs, are sought by anglers the world over. e Big Catch is a catchand-release program that offers anglers a full-color certificate and window sticker for freshwater catches that exceed a minimum length or weight. In Florida, more recreational fishing days are spent on fresh water than saltwater and largemouth bass are the most soughtafter species. By RONALD FRED CRUMof the WCFAThe Wakulla Commercial Fisherman Association (WCFA) is preparing for its 2011 Oyster Relay to be held Aug. 10-12, 2011. Recently, a $50,000 grant was awarded by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Division of Administration, to fund the relay in expectation of creating positive economic impacts, immediate jobs, and future jobs. The WCFA is attempting to move 22,000 bushels of legal sized, large oysters from prohibited harvesting areas to conditionally approved areas. After a designated time period which will allow the oysters to grow and “ lter, 10,000 bushels will be harvested in the early season and 10,000 later in the season. The immediate impact of this project to our local economy is valued at $50,000. However, future impacts of the successful implementation of the project could result in another $600,000 injected into our suffering coastal economy. These economic impacts are estimates; however, we are fully con“ dent that these goals can be achieved. We have solicited support from our state and local government of“ cials to help record the data to show the results of the oyster relay and fully document the economic impacts. We cordially invite the public, the press, and our federal, state, and local elected of“ cials to witness this vital process on Thursday. Aug. 11, in Panacea from 10 a.m. to noon. We believe the project will have great positive impact on the revitalization of our coastal economy. Please feel free to contact me for scheduling at (850) 528-1988 or by email at crumsminimall@embarqmail.com.

Saturday morning started out with the Staff Of“ cers of Flotilla 12 meeting our Flotilla Commander Bob Asztalos and Vice Commander Bill Wannall at the Crawfordville Fire Station for our quarterly staff of“ cer meeting. We were pleased to also have with us Division Commander Mo Davis. During our staff of“ cer meeting, we discussed two very real scenarios and how we, as staff of“ cers, might respond. This is a great opportunity to review some experiences we have encountered that may or may not have had the best possible solution. It was a nice compliment when Mo said he was going to encourage other Flotillas to do the same as part of their training. As our staff of“ cer meeting wound down we had a while to visit before starting the business meeting. After not being at a meeting for several months, it is always a great pleasure to see familiar faces as well as some new ones too! One new face was Dennis Walker from Cairo, Ga. He introduced himself to Duane and me saying he had followed us all the way down 319 and into Crawfordville. We hope he liked what he saw and will be coming back as a member in the future. Also new to me was Bruce Connors, who is a new member. Welcome to our family, Bruce! Throughout the business meeting, staff of“ cers presented reports on the past month. Phil Hill, our operations of“ cer, optimistically reported that we had four safety patrols in July and are hoping for more in August. Tim Ashley our Public Affairs of“ cer discussed the upcoming Department of Agriculture Safety Fair on Oct. 19 as well as the “ fth annual FSU Flyover scheduled for Nov. 19 … FSUs homecoming vs. Virginia. Mike Harrison reported that we as a Flotilla had 28 program visits last month. When a new member joins the Auxiliary, it is a process to become a full member. Once the application is submitted, a full background check must be done before the stamp of approval is sent along. We were all very proud to witness James BigginŽ Schwab receive his Oath of membership this month. He is of“ cially of“ cial now. Congrats, Biggin! Other awards that were presented included Raye Crews, Certificate of Advancement for Marine Safety Training Specialist; Seamanship Specialist; David Guttman, Letter of Commendation for service during 2009-10; Bill Wannall, Sustained Service Award 3750 hours; Rob Purvis, Crew Member Qualification; Duane Treadon, Sustained Service Award 6000 hours; Mike Harrison, Meritorious Service Award for JAREX participation in 2010, Silver Oar award for 2010, Seamanship Specialist; Terry Hoxworth, Seamanship Specialist; Norma Hill, Seamanship Specialist and Phil Hill, Seamanship Specialist. Bravo Zulu to all of you! Mark Rosen brought us all back to the importance of good communication during our member training portion of the meeting. In an old-school telephone-type game, he asked two members, Mike Harrison and me, to step out of the room. He then invited Mike back in and read him a short description of a scenario. When I returned to the room, Mike had to retell the scenario. Then Mark asked me to relay what I had been told. Needless to say, we both did not do especially well, but it was a very good lesson in making sure you get your facts straight and ask when you need more information. Before we adjourned the meeting, Division Commander Mo discussed Division 1 as one of the premier in the nation. Several of the Flotillas have surpassed the goals set for the year and as a division we are on our way to once again achieve the Silver Oar. The upcoming Division meeting will be an opportunity for training and fellowship. This meeting will be the second weekend in October in Panama City Beach. As I had told you last week, we also had scheduled a meeting with the St. George Island Detachment following our meeting in Crawfordville. Unfortunately, several members were not able to be present from the detachments, so this meeting was postponed. This is a very similar challenge facing Flotilla 13. They are still struggling to “ nd a time and place that the remaining members can have a meeting when everyone is able to be present. With school starting (mine have already started) soon for many in our area, please remember to slow down, take the extra time to get where you are going and be extra vigilant. As Sherrie reminds us, safe boating is no accident … neither is safe driving! www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 – Page 11Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water Ways Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Since our inland dive sites are fed mostly by rain, the more of it, the higher the current ” owing on its way to the coast. Much of the rain falling locally collects “ rst in what we locally call swamps. Swamps are digestive pits where organics collect, such as leaves, releasing their contents, such as tannin. As the swamp water level rises, these organics ” ow into nearby sink holes and begin their trek to the ocean. Of course we can just climb back into our car and drive peacefully home when poor underwater conditions prevail. For us divers, this is a recipe for poor underwater visibility. And if we were to choose the one sensory system to rely on most underwater, it is visibility. With poor visibility we can not see our cave line, our map leading the way out. We run into walls, ceiling and sediment ” oors with poor visibly. The current increases and we exhaust more energy to swim. Simply put, why bother diving? Wakulla Springs State Park is similarly impacted. The popular glass bottom boat rides shut down when the water turns dark in the main basin. Indeed, Wakulla County is best known to divers as having unpredictable underwater weather. Several world class exploration projects have been postponed when Wakullas waters turned unexpectedly black. Closer to the coast, we add a new dimension to our underwater weather. Caves with approximately 10 miles from the coast are archaea haline, or saltwater in” uenced. The more distant show tidal rise in the sinkhole, elevating as much as a meter (three feet) from the start of the dive to the end. We often “ nd a distinct warm saltwater layer or lens at the deepest part of these caves. We also “ nd distinct fauna (animals), often new to science. Also, here we “ nd clearer water, a fascinating combination for cave diving. But further south and closer to the ocean we are more constrained by the tide. The closer to the ocean, the more the saltwater mixes with the tide, making it turbid as is often found in the marshes along the coast. During the dryer months our clean fresh water encourages us to dive on the low tide. During the rainy season, we may “ nd the high tide better. And now water quality changes during the dive. Most of the caves south of Highway 98 are very tidal. When we reach the coastline, we “ nd sinkholes with connecting caves that are fully tidal. When the rain is abundant and the tide is low, they pump fresh water outward. When the opposite happens, they siphon saltwater in. Here divers MUST be vigilant to avoid becoming trapped in a siphoning coast sinkhole (called blue holes in the Bahamas). As we proceed further seaward, our diving weather becomes ever more connected to the atmosphere. Yes, tides bring cleaner water from the deep, low tides bring murky marsh water from shore. But wind generates waves that can reach down to the bottom and mix it all up. Afternoon squalls are common close to the coast this time of year. If you are diving from a small boat, when the wind comes up and the waves reduce your underwater weather enough to retreat, returning home is not so peaceful. All divers share a common concern for underwater visibility. Blame it on the weather. UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg Stanton Tues.

Page 12A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netWakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls will retire at the end of the month. He will be replaced by Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford. Judge Sauls has had the circuit court assignment for Wakulla County for 13 years. He turns 70 in September, the mandatory retirement age for judges. Judge Fulford was formerly the chief prosecutor in the Wakulla County of“ ce of the state attorney several years ago. One of Fulfords most high-pro“ le Wakulla prosecutions was Kenny Weinberg, a St. Marks dock builder who was charged with sexual battery, battery and kidnapping of his girlfriend at their campsite on the St. Marks River. He was also later charged with tampering with a witness. Weinberg fired his court-appointed lawyers and represented himself at trial and was found guilty by a jury. The woman Weinberg was accused of assaulting died under mysterious circumstances after she and Weinberg returned to Mississippi, where he was originally from, and despite a court order that Weinberg remain in Wakulla County. Weinberg and the woman got drunk, went swimming in the river, and she drowned. Hours after her disappearance, he eventually went and sought help. Judge Sauls sentenced Weinberg in December 2005 to 50 years in state prison. In other court matters: € Judge Sauls denied a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against the Florida Highway Patrol filed by a woman who claims she was sexually battered by a state trooper during a traf“ c stop. The woman filed the lawsuit against the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, the agency over the highway patrol, claiming the department was negligent in hiring and retaining Charlie Odom as a trooper. Odom went to trial twice on the charges … one trial ended in a mistrial after the jury deadlocked, and he was found not guilty in a second trial. Since the woman “ led the civil lawsuit against DHSMV, Odom has “ led a countersuit against the woman, claiming she is responsible for damages for false arrest. At a hearing on Monday, Aug. 8, an attorney for the agency argued that the case should be dismissed because allegations of sexual battery is not outside the scope of employment. It was also argued that there was no evidence of any misconduct by Odom that would support the allegation that the agency had been negligent in retaining Odom. Judge Sauls started to dismiss the claim of negligent retention but reconsidered and ultimately denied the motion to dismiss. The judge noted that the issues might be more appropriately dealt with in a motion for summary judgment. € In a related matter, former trooper Odom “ led a federal lawsuit last week against the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce and Sheriff David Harvey and Detective Jason Newland over the handling of his case. Odom is represented in the lawsuit by Tallahassee attorney Sid Matthew. € Centennial Bank “ led a foreclosure action against Triple H Construction, Michael Harbin, Deborah Harbin, John Harbin, Halfmoon LLC and H&H Construction for failure to pay a total of $1.34 million in notes. The lawsuit claims that, since September 2010, the companies have defaulted on 10 mortgages and notes on several parcels of property. € RBC Bank filed to foreclose on property by R.H. Carter Jr. on Surf Road for defaulting on a 2004 mortgage for $451,000 for property on Surf Road.Court shortsSpecial to The NewsDetectives with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce solved a well publicized credit card fraud and grand theft case on Aug. 3. The case began June 29 when a suspect stole a Monticello womans credit card while she was in Carrabelle and used it to make purchases at the Crawfordville Wal-Mart, according to Sheriff David Harvey. Through investigation, cooperation by the media in distributing photographs of the suspect and information obtained from the public, the WCSO arrested Vonnie Ray Tinsley, 30, of Tallahassee and charged him with three counts of fraud-illegal use of a credit card and grand theft. Area media published photographs of Tinsley taken while the suspect was purchasing items from Wal-Mart on June 30 using the victims stolen credit card. Tinsley was picked up by the WCSO in Leon County on Aug. 3. He remains in the Wakulla County Jail under a $50,000 bond. Two other individuals who were inside the Chevrolet Suburban photographed at the scene were also identi“ ed. A 32-yearold male and a 26-year-old female inside the vehicle were not charged. The victim is a 55-year-old female from Monticello. Tinsley cut his hair and shaved his goatee after the news media ran the photograph of him with long hair in an effort to keep concealed. In Wakulla County, Tinsley allegedly used the stolen credit card three times to purchase items totaling $1,019. At 6 p.m. on Aug. 3, WCSO detectives and a deputy and sergeant from the Leon County Sheriffs Of“ ce traveled to 9009 Aspen Court in Leon County and arrested Tinsley in the backyard of the residence. He was transported to the Wakulla County Jail without incident.Special to The NewsA domestic disturbance led Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce deputies to arrest a 33-year-old Crawfordville woman and a 22-year-old Crawfordville man Sunday, Aug. 7 after deputies investigated a disturbance involving a vehicle at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Road and Rehwinkel Road in Crawfordville, according to Sheriff David Harvey. Malaika Shafic Barnes was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and Travis Arterius Spencer was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. The WCSO received a report of a woman attempting to use her vehicle to injure a male victim. Off-duty Traf“ c Unit Lt. Dale Evans witnessed a male hanging out of Barnes vehicle attempting to get out. The male was able to escape from the vehicle on Feli Way after Barnes drove into a ditch. Spencer ran back toward M.L. King Road and Barnes drove back toward Spencer in an attempt to strike him, repeating the act several more times before he was picked up by a friend in another vehicle. Deputies stopped both vehicles a short distance away and smelled the odor of marijuana in the vehicle containing Spencer. Barnes told investigators that Spencer was in possession of marijuana. Spencer opened a bag he was carrying and turned 10 individually wrapped plastic baggies containing marijuana to investigators. Barnes was determined to be the primary aggressor and she was charged on scene as well. Both individuals are being held in the Wakulla County Jail.Couple arrested for narcotics, assaultArrest made in fraud, grand theft case Travis Arterius Spencer Malaika Sha“ c Barnes Vonnie Ray Tinsley U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, will have staff available in Wakulla County on Tuesday, Aug. 16, to listen to issues of local concern.

Page 14A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 4, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1A Corley says she grew up poor and sometimes didnt have air conditioning or heat. She also lost her mother when she was 15 and her father raised her as a single parent. Although the topic was difficult, Corley powered through it and decided to make a green heirloom tomato soup and an open face grilled cheese with provolone and goat cheese. I was trying to think outside the box,Ž Corley says. My southern ” avor came out.Ž On the show, judges Chef Gordon Ramsay, Chef Graham Elliot and restaurateur Joe Bastianich said the combination of cheeses didnt work and the dish was too acidic. Corley says what the viewers didnt see was Ramsay complimenting her on the taste and smell of the soup. In the end, Corley was sent home along with another contestant, Derrick Prince. But she was told by Ramsay that she was a breath of fresh air in the competition and to never, ever stop cooking. They said they never want to hear that,Ž Corley says. Thats awesome.Ž Corley says to have the opportunity of two top chefs and a restauranteur who has been in the business his whole life to taste and enjoy her food was amazing. Im proud of myself,Ž Corley says. Im proud to represent Sopchoppy. They arent really on the map much.Ž And she says she is thankful for all the support from family, friends and Wakulla County. Corley says she doesnt feel she should have been eliminated and never thought she would be sent home. They (the judges) never really put me down,Ž Corley says. They never said my food was a disaster. They never spit out my food or threw it in the trash.Ž All which happened frequently on Master Chef. Corley says she was never in the bottom three after any challenges and was either at the top or middle and didnt feel it was her time, but accepts the results and is thankful for the experience. I learned so much about food,Ž Corley says. Corley says the contestants learn how to make dif“ cult dishes and also about presentation and different techniques. Something she says she could only learn by paying for culinary school. And Corley says she was invited by all three judges to come to each of their restaurants, in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, to learn even more if she is ever in town. Thats when you know you dont suck,Ž Corley says. In spite of the great opportunity, Corley says it was a dif“ cult decision to join the show. She had to leave her son with her grandmother in Texas for an unknown amount of time, and lost her job as restaurant manager of 101 restaurant in Tallahassee, but she is glad she did it because it has opened up doors for her and her son. She says she has no regrets. Except for making that soup,Ž Corley says and laughs. Corley says she had a great time on the show, but says it was long days and extremely stressful. You cooked on a whim,Ž Corley says. You never knew what to expect.Ž A part of the show she says she didnt like were the mystery box challenges. Each contestant is presented with a box that contains certain ingredients and are not told what those ingredients are until right before it is time to cook. I was always scared to death,Ž Corley says. Theres a lot of produce I had never worked with.Ž During one of the challenges, the contestants were introduced to each of the judges moms and had to cook for them. The moms then chose the best dishes. Corley says she was excited to meet the moms, especially Bastianichs mom, Lidia Bastianich, who is a renowned chef, best-selling cookbook author and restaurateur. Tracy (another contestant) and I were just falling apart,Ž Corley says. And during the challenge, Lidia said she loved the poached pear that Corley cooked. That was amazing,Ž Corley says. Another one of her favorite challenges was a team challenge where the contestants were split into two teams and the teams had to come up with a burger, without using beef, and a side for hundreds of children. Corley was the team captain and was pitted against contestant Christian Collins, both who are parents. Corley decided to make chicken nugget sandwiches and corn fritters. The judges questioned her choice of picking fried foods. But ultimately, Corley came out victorious. For the judges not to give me confidence and then for me to kick everyones butt felt pretty great,Ž Corley says. Although at times it seems some of the contestants dont get a long on the show, Corley says she keeps in contact with everyone. We all formed a bond,Ž Corley says. We call it our Master Chef family. We have a unique bond.Ž Even though Corley did not win the title of Master Chef, she continues to cook and is currently visiting her grandmother in Texas. While there, Corley says she has been working as a private chef and performing cooking demonstrations. She will be moving to Miami at the end of the month to work as a sous chef at the Red Light restaurant under Chef Kris Wessel. Im looking forward to that,Ž Corley says. Theres so much I can do.Ž Corley says she is excited for her future and hopes to one day open her own restaurant. That way everyone can enjoy my food,Ž Corley says.Sopchoppys Christine Corley makes it to eight on the TV show MasterChef PHOTO BY CHRIS TOMKO/FOX PHOTO BY GREG GAYNE/FOXCorley serving food at a team challenge on the show.

Green Scene THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 Section B No ” ab is the new fabHealth & Fitness Get Fit, Page 4B Green Cafe Network aims to reduce carbon footprintEarthtalk, Page 3B By SHELLEY SWENSONWakulla Extension ServiceGREEN LIVING I have had such fun teaching people this spring and summer the basics of how to safely preserve food through small canning partiesŽ held in homes, church kitchens or at the Extension Of“ ce. There seems to be renewed interest in preserving food either due to the struggling economy or the back to basicsŽ philosophy that seems to be sweeping our country. I just wish the hot weather could have been a little kinder to those who were trying to garden. I am still interested in having more parties if you are interested. Gather four to eight friends and let me know if you want to learn to make jelly or salsa, which both require the hot water bath method or vegetables so you can gain confidence in using a pressure canner. I bring everything to host the gathering and charge $5 per person for the seminar. Some of my most rewarding experiences have been seeing the interest by youths in learning how to make jam. I did a seminar during the residential 4-H camp by utilizing the nearby Madison County Extension Of“ ce and have had sessions at several of the Culinary Camp day camps where the kids made jam. They are so interested in learning how to turn a bowl of blueberries into jam. Another important learning that results is their new awareness of how much sugar is in jelly. Many cant believe it as they pour cup after cup of sugar into the mixture. They leave with a new appreciation for the lower sugar version now available that their parents may have offered them for their topping for their morning toast. Continued on Page 10B Canning parties make learning how to preserve food funSEEK students visit Wakulla By LYNN ARTZSpecial to The News Teenagers from across Florida journeyed to Wakulla County in July to attend the 2011 Save the Earth through Knowledge (SEEK) environmental conference. SEEK is an annual statewide conference sponsored by the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Nearly 60 high school students from as far away as Winter Haven and Port St. Lucie attended one of two, four-day conference sessions based at Wakulla Springs Lodge. This is the fourth year that SEEK has been held in Wakulla County and the “ fth year that Lynn Artz has coordinated the statewide conference. The session for younger and “ rst-time participants included many of the activities that have made this an outstanding, life-changing experience for students in previous years. This group calculated their carbon footprints, explored the salt marshes of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, and visited the Apalachicola National Forest to learn about the longleaf pine ecosystem that once dominated the southeast.

Page 2B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comTail Wagger...By JOAN JENDRIXCHAT PresidentI received a call Saturday from an individual who had adopted a cute little puppy last February and was so happy and excited. Puppies are so cute, playful and cuddly. Who wouldnt want to adopt one? Here at CHAT, smiles are all over the place when were able to save a little life and get it placed in a loving forever home. What should one consider when adopting a puppy? Well, puppies must be potty trained, taught commands to come, sit, what to play with and what not to play with, etc. Puppies also must have a lot of one-on-one time with its new owner in order to learn good behavior. Do you have a year to spend time and to train your puppy? You will need at least a year and lots of patience. Toys should be provided which help cutting teeth, for interest and to play with. Boredom of your puppy should never enter into the equation, ever. Do simple things like, move its food bowl from place to place, change bowls or let her eat from your hand for the “ rst bite or two. What does this do? It creates new thought processes and learning experiences for your puppy. Keep introducing new items, toys, walking places and introducing new activities. Start walking your puppy right away. Walks dont have to be long at “ rst, just increase the length of the walk as your puppy grows. Puppies are inquisitive and are constantly soaking everything up like a sponge. Now, lets talk about what happens with your puppy if after adoption you dont take the time and responsibility to do what your puppy needs. Puppies depend on us. They dont read books and know automatically how to handle themselves in our homes or how to greet other dogs or people. They are not born perfect. Just like children, they all need full and undivided attention and lots of love. Lets say you have other dogs, maybe six more dogs. You arrive at home with your new puppy and somehow you “ nd yourself in a situation you didnt really give much thought, which is, I dont have time to fool around with the puppy today, day after day, after day, etc. In addition, because you have six other dogs who need your attention, one day, this little puppy has to grow up on its own without guidance and has to find other things to keep him entertained and busy. Plus she has time to see what the other dogs are doing, right or wrong. What happens to this sweet puppy that had so much potential? Soon, she falls by the wayside because shes no longer a puppy, she has become a dog. All the other dogs, hopefully had the attention they needed, but a seventh one was pretty much on its own. Now, shes bored and doesnt really know where her place is and what shes supposed to do with her time. Well, she could dig a big hole over there, or she could have some fun and tear up things and spread them around, that seems like fun. Hey, here comes somebody, oh, Im happy so Ill just jump on them. Well, that is exactly what has happened to a wonderful little puppy that grew up to be a dog. How sad that her owner doesnt want her anymore because she tears up things, digs and does other disturbing activities. Whose fault is it because the dog doesnt know how to act and is not obedient? I think you all will agree with me, it isnt the dogs fault; its the owners fault. The owner will be bringing this sweet dog back to CHAT next week complaining of the havoc she is unleashing in their lives. My sympathy is for the dog whose forever home is now gone and because she wasnt loved enough, she was loved just when it was convenient for her owners. We will do everything in our power to find the right loving home for her. She needs someone who will love her, give her what all dogs need from the very beginning of their lives; “ rst of all time, then love and training. Thats all.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 – Page 3BDear EarthTalk: I heard about something called the Green Caf Network. What is it and what are they trying to accomplish for the environment? … Jane Stevenson, Los AngelesThe Green Caf Network (GCN), a project of the nonpro“ t Earth Island Institute, seeks to reduce Americans environmental impacts by greening the coffeehouse industry and harnessing cafe culture for community environmental awareness. By educating and working with cafe owners and staff, GCN helps network members reduce waste, save energy, conserve water and increase community stewardship. GCNs 30-plus cafes scattered across Northern California (as well as one in New York City and another in Keshena, Wis.) are committed to reducing their carbon footprints, promoting environmental responsibility and generally operating in as sustainable a manner as possible. The approach of the GCN is to build on the influence of key institutions „ neighborhood cafes and Americans infatuation with coffee „ to try to raise environmental awareness and spur individual action. The idea is that when people see their local caf as a positive example of green business practices and community building, there is a ripple effect, and the community is strengthened accordingly. For cafes interested in getting involved, GCN provides personalized consulting services to help owners reduce their ecological footprints, enhance and streamline their operations, and set a visible good example of environmental responsibility for the community at large. Services can address speci“ c areas in need of attention, such as energy and water conservation, waste reduction, toxics minimization and eco-friendly purchasing, and also overall efforts to green the business from top to bottom. GCN can also consult on green building issues in the design, construction and remodel phases of a cafes lifecycle. With a project tagline of Love Our Planet a Latte,Ž how could one not love what GCN is doing? Cafes and coffee shops can take steps to align environmental considerations with business operations even without membership in GCN. The Barista Exchange website, for one, offers a treasure trove of information and tips on greening up cafes and coffee shops through energy and waste reduction, eco-friendly procurement and the sourcing of organic fair trade coffee. U.S. coffee shops serve up about 25 million cups every day, so coffee shops can make a huge difference by being green. For its part, the nations leading coffee retailer, Starbucks, has been a pioneer in greening the coffee industry, and the company considers environmental stewardship a priority. With dedicated programs for increasing recycling, conserving energy and water, sourcing greener beans, using sustainable building techniques and materials in new stores, and offsetting carbon emissions, Starbucks has worked hard to set a green example. Dear EarthTalk: As I understand it, Debt-forNature SwapsŽ are arrangements by which countries can erase debt by preserving land. Are any being done today?… Bill Hunt, Topeka, Kan.The debt-for-nature swap concept, whereby a portion of a developing nations foreign debt is forgiven in exchange for local investments in environmental conservation measures, dates back to the mid-1980s when Thomas Lovejoy of the non-pro“ t World Wildlife Fund (WWF) “ rst proposed it as a way to deal with the problems of developing nations indebtedness and the negative consequences for their natural resources and diverse environments. The theory goes that if a country with, say, valuable tropical rainforests, is up to its ears in debt, it will sell off or otherwise deplete those natural resources, instead of protecting or conserving them, in order to raise the money needed to pay off its debts. Debt-for-nature swaps can therefore be useful financial mechanisms for helping countries reduce debt without destroying their most valuable natural resources. Since the “ rst swap was brokered with Bolivia (to protect its Beni Biosphere Reserve and adjacent areas) by the non-pro“ t Conservation International in 1987, many national governments and conservation groups have engaged in similar types of debt-for-nature swap negotiations, especially in tropical countries which contain diverse and threatened species of ” ora and fauna. Costa Rica has exchanged tens of millions of dollars in debt to protect some of its most pristine and biologically productive rainforests. In 1998, the U.S. government passed the Tropical Forest Conservation Act to codify debt-for-nature swaps, including formally welcoming non-profit groups like Conservation International, the Nature Conservancy, WWF and others to help arrange the deals and oversee implementation of local initiatives. A 2010 Congressional Research Service report found that since 1987, debt-for-nature swaps have channeled upwards of $1 billion toward tropical forest conservation initiatives instead of back into creditor nations coffers. But far fewer deals are occurring today for a number of reasons. For one, says the Congressional Research Service, other agreements for debt restructuring and cancellation have reduced developing nations debt by significantly more than debt-for-nature swaps can. Another is that the concept has fallen somewhat out of favor. Some experts argue that the financial bene“ ts are overstated, that funds are misdirected to less needy countries, that external debt is not a primary driver of deforestation and other environmental ills, and that funding does not necessarily equate to effective implementation of conservation strategies. Criticism aside, some deals are still getting done. In 2008, France forgave $20 million in debt owed by Madagascar to help the biodiversity-rich nation triple the size of its protected areas to better protect its native ” ora and fauna. In 2010, the U.S. forgave $21 million in Brazilian debt to fund several ecosystem protection initiatives in Brazils still vanishing tropical rainforests. The U.S. has also forgiven debt from the Philippines, Guatemala and Peru in recent years in exchange for on-the-ground conservation efforts. Germany and the Netherlands have each forgiven some of their foreign debt to tropical nations for forest protection as well. So while debt-for-nature swaps are not as popular as they once were, they are still a key tool in the toolbox of environmentalists looking to promote conservation in tropical countries.EarthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E The Environmental Magazine (www.emagazine.com).

Throughout the years, I have helped people to achieve their “ tness needs with various workouts. One of the top requests has been to help create a program to reduce ” ab off their arms. No matter the age, male, or female, there has always been an issue with their arms. First and foremost, to help you tone your body, you must reduce the fat, which would mean that you should probably take a hard look at your diet. Consult your doctor or nutritionist to help you create a diet that will work for you and remind them that you are starting a workout so that they can give you the exact amount of nutrients to help you achieve your goal. So after the diet, you have to decide a plan of attack, it is important to write it down, and make sure you will stick with it. We have always had good intentions in our workout programs, just look around your house and see if there is exercise equipment that you already purchased and dont use. So ask yourself, Why didnt I use it then, and what has changed to make me use it now?Ž You should write down your plan, an actual schedule of time for your workout, and keep it current. Now that you have your plan of attack what to do, if you are going to work out at home you can do a lot of body weight exercises. Wall push-ups … Stand in front of a bare wall an arm length away. Lift your arms up to shoulder level and place your palms against the wall fingertips up and your arms are slightly wider than your shoulders. Bend your elbows so your nose comes within touching distance of the wall, ensuring your back is not arched. A trick to keep your back tight is to hold in your tummy and tuck your butt under during the exercise. Try to focus on breathing, inhaling at the beginning the exercise and exhaling as you push off the wall until your arms are in an outstretched position. Inhale as you go back to the starting position. Try to do as many as you can. Once you become pro“ cient you can try ” oor pushups. Chair tricep dips … Sit down on the edge of the chair and place your hands behind your hips, holding on to the edge of the seat, shoulder-width apart. Lift your body off the chair and walk forward so that your body is in front of the chair seat while holding on. With your chest elevated and head up, and your knees not over your toes. Slowly lower your body downward while bending your elbows. Once you elbows are parallel, extend your arms, raising your body upward and supporting your weight with your arms. If you are new to this exercise, one set of three to eight reps and work yourself up to three sets of 10 to 12. More advanced can try to build up to 15 dips three to four sets. Bicep curls with household items … Your pantry can be a great place to “ nd weights, from a one pound can of beans to a “ ve pound bag of rice, you can use all of these for bicep curls. Simply pick up the cans (same amount in each hand) and stand with your feet as wide apart as your hips. Let your arms hang down at your sides with your palms forward. Make sure you pull your abdominals in, stand tall, and keep your knees slightly bent. Curl both arms upward until theyre in front of your shoulders. Slowly lower your arms back down. Beginners should try 10 to 12 in a set, while building up to three or four sets of 15. Its easy to work out at home … but honestly the majority of people who work out at home tend to get sidetracked, with the baby crying, the phone ringing, and so forth. What to do? Try a gym membership. Most gyms have classes and a trainer or gym manager on staff who is well versed on different types of equipment and exercises that you can use to achieve your toned body. Most gyms will even help you devise a plan that will keep you motivated or direct you to a class that will help you achieve your goals. So if you want to keep off the FLAB to keep those arms FAB. Remember: check your diet, write your plan of attack and be safe when you lift and always push yourself.Pamela Chichester, CFT is Body-Tek 24 Hour Fitness manager. She can be reached at 926-2348. Page 4B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comYoga, meaning yoke or union, is an ancient physical mental and spiritual practice with its roots going back 5,000 years to India. The practice of hatha yoga, which includes the physical postures, breathing techniques and relaxation, has many physical bene“ ts such as improved posture and increased ” exibility and strength. A body with scoliosis has developed a highly sophisticated compensating actŽ and it can also learn a more re“ ned symmetrical act with proper instruction. By combining the yoga postures with breathing awareness, one can develop a structural alignment, creating a more normal symmetrical alignment. This is accomplished by stretching muscles that have tightened and strengthening muscles that have become weak from this asymmetrical imbalance. In this way, the body will create a more effortless posture using the bone structure, rather than over working the muscles to hold itself up. Through yoga, one can “ nd the balance point that allows the scoliosis curve to coexist with gravity and activates the bodys natural plumb line. The result for most people with scoliosis is better posture and less pain. Choosing to do yoga for scoliosis requires commitment and inner awareness. With scoliosis, it is important to not expect perfection but instead accept oneself, and “ nd ones own optimal alignment and center. As there is beauty in the straight alignment of a palm tree, there is also beauty of an oak tree with its many twists and turns. Psychologically, doing yoga is very empowering. It gives hope that we can do something to improve our condition and our quality of living.Dolly Moody is a professional Kripalu teacher in Panacea. She can be reached at (228) 380-0140.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 – Page 5BBy MICHAEL PELTIERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 5 … The ever-shifting sands of political popularity swirled around the capital city this week as Floridas unpopular governor became less so, the nations unpopular president became more so and undecided Republican voters remained so as the GOP looks for a challenger to unseat a popular U.S. senator. Florida health of“ cials, meanwhile, submitted their long awaited blueprint to their federal counterparts in the ongoing effort to shift most of the states nearly 3 million Medicaid recipients into managed health care plans. The proposal, which backers say will cut costs in the $21.1 billion a year program, has its detractors, including the Florida Medical Association, which came out last weekend to of“ cially criticize the plan. Doctors werent the only group asking Washington for help. Florida Democrats have asked the U.S. Department of Justice to oppose sweeping changes made by the Republican-packed Legislature to Floridas elections law, while state environmental of“ cials tweaked proposed water standards in hopes of replacing federal guidelines critics say are too rigid. The states economic malaise continued as statewide property values maintained their drift through the doldrums, despite modest improvements in the nations employment picture that showed fewer government jobs but stronger hiring demand from private sector employers. The property value slump prompted state economists this week to warn that there will be less money than expected this coming year to pay for schools. Q-POLL SHOWS UPS AND DOWNS OF PUBLIC LIFE Nothing better in the dog days of summer than a good poll and Quinnipiac University didnt disappoint this week as it released data on how Floridians feel about their president, their governor and the recent debt ceiling drama. Gov. Rick Scotts root cellar approval rating has ticked up slightly, moving from 29 percent in May to 35 percent in the universitys most recent poll released Friday. Scotts popularity push came even before the governor donned an apron to make doughnuts in Tampa this week as he returned to his deep-fried roots on his “ rst work day.Ž The gimmick, which takes a page from former Gov. Bob Grahams playbook, appears part of a larger effort to make Scott more likeable, a push that includes less formal attire and more frequent visits with the capitol press corps and editorial boards around the state. Gov. Scott still has a long hike to parity in voter approval, but he has begun the trek,Ž said Peter Brown, assistant director of the universitys polling institute. Whether it is the beginning of a serious move or just a blip, time will tell.Ž Despite the improved numbers, voters still “ nd the governors policies unlikable, with 54 percent saying they dont approve compared to 34 percent who say they do. The governor could easily say hes misunderstood. A full 57 percent say they dont know whether the state budget signed by the governor raises taxes, while 19 percent incorrectly believe it does. While Scotts numbers are moving up, Obamas looked more like the New York Stock Exchange this week. The presidents approval rating among Florida voters has fallen since May, especially among independents who tip the balance in the key swing state. Overall, Obamas approval rating fell from 51 percent in May to 44 percent earlier this week. The presidents biggest drop off was among independent voters, whose 61 percent May approval rating dropped to 47 percent. Despite his drop in the polls, Obamas handling of the recent debt ceiling talks was viewed more favorably by voters, who gave the president higher marks than congressional leaders involved in negotiations that ended with a deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling in exchange for at least $2 trillion in cuts over the next 10 years. Obama also got some help Friday as the national unemployment rate in July dipped 0.1 percentage points to 9.1 percent. While voters have a pretty good bead on Scott and Obama, more than half of Republicans polled are undecided about the states U.S. Senate primary. Retired Army Col. Mike McCalister is the frontrunner, favored by 15 percent of those polled. Its possible the other 85 percent dont even know who he is … being a political newcomer in a race hardly anyone is paying close attention to yet. McCalister is followed by former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, expected by many to lead the pack after Senate President Mike Haridopolos dropped out of the race. LeMieux is only polling 12 percent. Former state legislator Adam Hasner has the steepest climb. He is holding up the Republican rear at 6 percent, lower than Orlando businessman Craig Miller who polled 8 percent. At least Hasner can take heart in that he is not Nancy Argenziano. The firebrand former Republican announced this week that she would run as a Democrat to challenge freshman Republican Congressman Steve Southerland, a tea party-backed candidate who rode last years Republican wave to victory over incumbent Rep. Allen Boyd. Argenziano, who represented many of the counties in Southerlands district during her time in the Legislature, would have given Democrats a credible candidate for the seat in a year that could be less favorable to the GOP. But a new state law appears to require Argenziano to have registered as a Democrat … or at least not be a registered member of another party … at least a year before the opening of qualifying for the seat, now scheduled for June 4. And she is a member of another party … she registered recently as a member of the Independent Party. MEDICAID PLAN TO FEDS Floridas Medicaid overhaul would not start shifting people into managedcare plans until 2013 and use a controversial pilot program as a springboard, according to hundreds of pages of documents released this week by the Agency for Health Care Administration. The plan would eventually require almost all beneficiaries to enroll in managed-care plans. Supporters hope the federal government will sign off on the proposal, which they say would help control costs and improve care for bene“ ciaries. But opponents worry about requiring Medicaid bene“ ciaries statewide to enroll in HMOs or other types of managed-care plans. Some, including Democratic legislative leaders, want the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to reject the proposal. The number of of“ cial detractors increased this week as Florida Medical Association of“ cials voted in a closed door session over the weekend to oppose the states proposal. A number of doctors have been opposed to the shift of most Medicaid patients into managed care, but few would say so publicly. Likewise, the association has been silent on the issue until now. FMA leaders passed a resolution to discourage CMS from approving the waiver that would allow the switch. The FMAs new president, Dr. Miguel Machado, said the group would send a letter to CMS making its opposition known. STATE/GROUPS SAY NO TO FEDS Department of Environmental Protection staffers slogged through the details of what they hope will be a slate of water standards for Florida lakes, rivers, springs and other freshwater bodies acceptable to federal of“ cials who have established a set of criteria of their own that many business groups in the state say would be too pricey. The discussion came as a federal appellate court in Atlanta threw out an appeal filed by water management of“ cials and backed by industry groups that challenged a 2009 consent decree entered into by the federal Environmental Protection Agency that set out numerical limits for nutrients going into the states waterways. If state lawmakers fail to act, the EPA could return in March to its set of rules for state waters, but federal of“ cials have indicated they would be willing to extend that deadline if progress is being made on the states efforts. The 11th Circuit of Court of Appeals ruling Wednesday, however, keeps those regulations on the table as an option. While the state battles the feds over water, state Democrats have asked the U.S. Department of Justice to oppose sweeping changes to Floridas elections law, saying in a memo the measure passed during the spring legislative session will result in fewer registered minority voters, fewer ballots cast by minority voters, and fewer ballots counted for minority voters.Ž The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committees memo comes days after Secretary of State Kurt Browning asked a federal court to preclearŽ the law, an unusual attempt to sidestep the DOJ after the state had originally asked Justice to give the law the green light. Browning said he was worried that outside pressure might shape the agencys opinion, which would still be considered in the court case. HOUSING MARKET REBOUND In a sign that Floridas housing market may be on the road to recovery, the states top economist expects an increase in school property tax rolls next year of 1.3 percent. Though that is actually a slight decrease from the original forecast of 2 percent, it is one of the most promising signs yet that Floridas ailing and hard-hit housing market is on the mend after four years of plunging values. Floridas housing market was one of the hardest hit in the nation, the victim of an overwrought housing bubble, loose mortgage standards and a tourismbased economy. We turned the corner,Ž said state economist Amy Baker, who cautioned the economic recovery is still fragile. The correction from the housing boom was severe and very dramatic on the (tax) rolls,Ž Baker said. Now most of that correction is behind us, but we are still not back to the growth we typically see.Ž She said that property tax rolls are going to stabilize after four years of decreases, with drops of more than 10 percent in tax rolls in 2009 and 2010. STORY OF THE WEEK: A Quinnipiac University poll shows Gov. Rick Scott rebounding from dismal approval ratings while Obama sees his stock fall. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: If they are presented something and the Legislature hasnt acted, the EPA still has a hammer to hold over the state,Ž said Colleen Castille, former DEP Secretary who now represents a number of business clients with water interests. ŽIt all depends how close we are.ŽWEEKLY ROUNDUP „ (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Who loves you, baby Call us today to make your reservation!www.jacksbquick.comOpen Monday Friday • 7am 6pm Saturday by appointment only Tucker Life-Health Insurance, Inc.RATED A+ BY BETTER BUSINESS BUREAUTOP QUALITY COMPANYMEDICARE PLANSAFFORDABLE COVERAGE TO SAVE YOU MONEY Ross E.

SEEK students holding horseshoe crabs at Gulf Specimen Marine Lab. Recycling. Marpan successfully recycles 68 percent of the construction and demolition debris, used mattresses and furniture, and the like that it receives. As part of learning about Karst hydrogeology and springs protection, participants in both groups hiked to see the sinkholes and swallets (disappearing streams) at Leon Sinks, swam in the cool waters of Wakulla Springs (a “ rst magnitude spring), enjoyed a boat ride over the spring vent and the headwaters of the Wakulla River, and canoed on the Wakulla River as it ” owed to the Gulf. The river boat rides offered many great photo opportunities and close-up views of wildlife. The canoe adventures included manatee and alligator sightings (and one tipped-over canoe). As a service project, both groups of students uprooted dog fennel and ragweed … and collected litter and recyclables … from Wakulla Countys Roadside Wild” ower Preservation Project along the Coastal Highway (98). Members of the Iris Garden Club assisted in this effort. For more information, please contact Lynn Artz at (850) 320-2158 or email at lynn_artz@hotmail.com, or visit SEEKs webpage at ww.ffgc.org.Lynn Artz is a county commissioner and member of Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Continued from Page 1B They visited a red-cockaded woodpecker colony and stood inches away from male and female red-cockaded woodpeckers that were captured for banding, and then released. The touch tanks and fascinating critters at Gulf Specimen Marine Lab delighted the students as always. The session for older and returning participants included visits to solar thermal and solar PV installations in Wakulla County and a tour of FSUs Off-Grid Zero Emissions building. This group had a lively discussion after watching the “ lm, Addicted to PlasticŽ and also toured Marpan Page 10B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 11, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comContinued from Page 1B If your dial gauge pressure canner is something that you inherited from your grandmother, have rediscovered it in the back of the cupboard and plan to use it, I can test it for accuracy through a pressure gauge tester which we have to insure safety for home canners. It is recommended that if your gauge measures any more than two pounds in either direction to being accurate, you should replace your gauge. Since my schedule differs each day, it is best to set an appointment to test your gauge to insure I am able to serve you. If you have a weighted gauge pressure canner, you need to learn to use it accurately but it does not have to be periodically tested for pressure reading accuracy. Check the gasket as well. If it cracks when you fold them in half, it needs replacing. Did you notice that I am talking pressure canner, not pressure pan? Do not confuse the two. One is for processing low acid foods and the other is utilized to cut down on the cooking time of many foods. Be watching for a seminar that will take place this fall when David Moody and I are going to team up to host a workshop to show the basics of pressure canning. It will be directed mostly to the canning of meat and “ sh. Give me a call if you want to learn the details as they become available so I can contact you directly. I also want you to be aware that the Ball Canning Company is also encouraging home canning parties. Recently they released a marketing campaign for Saturday, Aug. 13, during which they are encouraging the millions of food lovers curious about canning and experiencing the reward of preserving fresh foods to be a part of this event. They have teamed up with Canning Across America, a collective group of cooks, gardeners and food lovers committed to the revival of the lost art of putting upŽ locally grown food, to create the first National Can-It Forward Day. They encourage you to gather family and friends to celebrate the bounty of summer. Share the joy of preserving fresh food through a day of home canning parties or by watching online instructional canning videos. Check out their newly redesigned website to learn more. You can even join the Canning and Recipes Facebook Page. Their website is www.canningacrossamerica.com. And dont forget all of the food preservation materials available through UF/IFAS and the Wakulla County Extension Service. Call me to learn how to receive them or go directly to www.solutionsforyourlife.com. If you havent checked out this months Angelfood menu, do so at their website, www.angelfoodministries.com. They have replaced their dry goods with more protein items and frozen vegetables. Angelfood offers such a reasonable way to obtain food. Consider buying a box for a family in need.
