By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netIt was hot out on the water last week. It was even hotter if you were tonging oysters … as Congressman Steve Southerrland found out when he gave it a try. Thats hard work,Ž Southerland told a boatload of reporters following him on the water. Along with Southerland, R-Panama City, were state Sen. Bill Montord, D-Tallahassee, and state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. The politicians were taking a look at this years oyster relay program in Wakulla County. The $50,000 grant pays oystermen to move bushels of oysters from closed areas to areas that are open to oystering. In two weeks, the oystermen can return and harvest the oysters … and they will be safe for human consumption having been cleanedŽ in the open areas. In the end, it makes sure oystermen have jobs,Ž Southerland said, and theres something on the dinner table for consumers.Ž This year the local program is being administered by Wakulla Fishermans Association. And the media and politicians were invited out on Thursday, Aug. 11, by “ shermans association president Ronald Fred Crum to see how the program works. Crum made some changes this year … making the payment $2 per bushel for a 60-pound container of oysters, rather than 10 pounds as in the past. Crum noted that, when harvested, those oysters will bring $20 a bushel. Crum had been a critic of past years relays, which he dubbed an entitlementŽ for oystermen. We have to make some changes in how we do things,Ž he said. The three-day oyster relay moved 17,492 bushels of oysters from closed areas in Oyster Bay to open areas near Gull Island.

Oyster relay Questions raised at TDCBack to School section availableBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netSince the controversy, accusations and concerns raised over the Tourist Development Council and its director, Pam Portwood, the Wakulla County Commission has decided to adjust the directors contract with the county. This comes after residents in the community voiced concerns over the proposed Tourist Development Tax increase and began to ask questions about what the extra money would be used for, which led to public records requests and Chief Deputy Clerk Greg James raising his own concerns. The concerns heard throughout the community are whether the TDC is being run ef“ ciently, money is being spent wisely, the director is effectively doing her job, increased hours and the addition of health insurance for the director and the contract not be amended to re” ect these additions. According to James, there are two recent contracts, March 2009 and May 2010, which are different from each other. One includes compensation of $25,000 a year and allows travel to be reimbursed. The May 2010 contract includes base salary of $25,000, but does not mention travel reimbursement and includes health insurance to be paid for the director at the same rate as a county employee. James pointed out that the clerks of“ ce has reimbursed Portwood for travel expenses since May 2010 for a total of $2,110.59, which would need to be paid back if going by the May 2010 contract. Also, in October 2010, TDCs budget was amended to give Portwood an increase in pay of $354.58 per month. However, Portwoods contract was not amended to include the increase, which would bring her total salary to $29,255. Amending the TDC budget does not amend the TDC director contract,Ž James said.Continued on Page 5A COUNTY COMMISSIONBy JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netCounty commissioners heard from Florida Governmental Utility Authority about the possibility of taking over the countys sewer at an Aug. 4 workshop. The county would sell the sewer system to FGUA, which would then provide sewer for the county. And at any point if the county wanted to, it could acquire ownership back. FGUA is a mutli-jurisdictional entity for utility ownership, operation and management. Robert Sheets, general manager of Government Services Group, said the entity would look at the countys system, operations and “ nances. If they decided to take over the system, the county would have zero “ nancial, operational and environmental liability. GSG provides management and operational services to the FGUA. All those risks leave the countys plate,Ž Sheets said. Currently, the county continues to lose money with the sewer system. All we want to do is break even,Ž Commissioner Mike Stewart said. If FGUA took over, one representative from Wakulla County, not a commissioner, would sit on the FGUA board, which is comprised of one representative from each county FGUA serves. The board sets the rates and makes the decision for all the counties. Stewart said, The sewers not making money.Ž He added that the sewer needs to expand because the daily flow is exceeding the number where the county needs to start planning for the future. Continued on Page 3AChamber presents plan to improve 319By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netThe Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce hopes to be able to implement a Blueprint 2000-type effort in Wakulla County and wants the “ rst project to be improvements to U.S. 319. Our town is much smaller, our plan much simpler,Ž said Chamber President John Shuff. Members of the chamber, as well as those involved with Tallahassees plan, made a presentation to the Wakulla County Commission at a Aug. 4 workshop. Tallahassees plan called for a voters to approve an extra one-cent to the sales tax. David Bright, Blueprint 2000 planning manager, said the original estimate for 15 years charging this amount was $728 million, however with the drop in the economy, he said they are anticipating only $440 million. Bright suggested the county leverage its dollars and apply for grants, and having projects ready will give the county a better opportunity fo r grants.

Still, he anticipated that the $50,000 grant would have the effect of producing a $600,000 return to the community when those oysters are harvested beginning Sept. 1. Thats money going back into our community,Ž Crum said. The politicians arrived at the Rock Landing Dock in Panacea on Thursday morning, trailed by TV and print reporters, and loaded onto several boats for the trip to Oyster Bay. There, the observers watched as oystermen tonged up oysters into containers from the closed area, marked with white floats, and rushed them in their boats to the relay deposit area, marked with green floats, where they were inspected and then dumped. The state grant was through the Department of Agricultures aquaculture division.Oyster relayClockwise from top: Oystermen show the quality of oysters theyre harvesting from closed areas for relay to open waters; the containers of oysters are dumped in the open areas and will be harvested after two weeks; “ sherman Clark Nichols is interviewed by reporters; Wakulla Fishermans Association President Ronald Fred Crum talks to reporters on the Rock Landing Dock.PHOTOS BY WILLIAM SNOWDEN By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA group of about 70 people, which included environmental activists, employees with city and county governments throughout the state, Florida Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency staff, met for several hours in Tallahassee on Aug. 3 to discuss DEPs proposed rule for nutrient criteria for state waters. DEP is drafting a rule in hopes of controlling its own waters and not rely on the Environmental Protection Agencys manage the states waters. Environmental groups sued the EPA in 2008 for failing to enforce the Clean Water Act and in 2009, EPA settled and agreed to set numeric nutrient standards in two stages, one for inland water bodies and one for estuaries and coastal water. The effective date for the rule will be March 6, 2012, which was extended 15 months to allow an opportunity to review the standards and develop ” exible strategies for implementation. In April, DEP petitioned EPA to withdraw their determination that numeric nutrient criteria are necessary in Florida and to repeal the EPAs rule for Florida, allowing them to create their own rule. In June, EPA agreed to support this endeavor for rule development, but not rule making. The DEP plans to present the rule to the Environmental Regulatory Commission in November, who could vote on the rule in January. If approved, it will go before the legislature during the 2012 session. According to Darryl Joyner of DEP, EPA has expressed they would delay the effective date if FDEP was making substantial progress. The more we could handle, the better,Ž Joyner said. According to the DEPs list of impaired waters, about 1,918 miles of rivers and streams are impaired. The number of miles impaired grew from 1,000 miles in 2008 to 1,900 miles in 2010. The current draft rule proposed uses EPAs numbers, but is more ” exible and subjective, said Drew Bartlett with DEP. Joyner said the rule will implement narrartive nutrient criteria related to imbalance. The narrative criteria provides a ” exible and strong tool, he said. He added that DEP will look at the numbers for a water body, as well as if it is biologically healthy. And the numbers will be looked at as a spatial average of the water body. DEP will take the comments provided from the workshops to continue to develop the rule for Florida. Another workshop will be held in September. Were relying on feedback,Ž Bartlett said. On the same day as the August workshop, a federal appeals court turned down a challenge by utilities, farmers and the South Florida Water Management District to do away with EPAs proposed numeric nutrient criteria for the state. This court decision is a win for Floridas families. We should not have to endure public health threat posed by contaminated river, springs, lakes and beaches,Ž said EarthJustice attorney David Guest. We are talking about the water that ” ows from our kitchen taps. It needs to be clean,Ž he said.State, feds, local governments discuss water rulesO cials meet for hours to discuss the proposed rule for nutrients in state waters MIKE PELTIER/NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA Darryl Joyner of DEP walks through a package of proposed water quality standards at the workshop The discussion came, though, as a federal appellate court in Atlanta threw out an appeal “ led by water management officials 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. In its ruling, the appellate court upheld the consent order that set up speci“ c federal pollution standards, known as numeric standards,Ž in place of state standards that were more flexible and subjective. Those federal standards are on hold, however, as federal officials have agreed to allow Florida of“ cials to draft new state rules to better meet what the federal government says the state must do, generally, to meet clean water laws.… News Service of FloridaFederal appeals court rejects states challenge to EPA


By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netAnother city is discussing the idea of joining with the countys solid waste assessment of $196. The St. Marks City Commission talked about the possibility at their Aug. 11 meeting. The city of Sopchoppy will adopt a resolution at their next meeting to be included in the assessment, along with county residents, which includes curbside garbage and recyclables pickup once a week. St. Marks currently charges for garbage pickup within the city limits, charging $19 a month, not including recyclables, said St. Marks Mayor Chuck Shields. The charge of $196, which will appear with each households property taxes, equals out to $16 a month. Shields said going with the assessment would save city residents some money and would also allow them to offer recycling. Maybe we do what Sopchoppy did,Ž Shields said. Shields said it would also save the city staff the extra work. City Manager Zoe Mans“ eld said the city will be increasing the water and sewer rates by 3 percent at the start of next year, which would include garbage. Shields said he felt like it was worth looking into and the commission agreed. In other matters: € The city commission heard from Billy Bishop of St. Marks Waterfronts Partnership about a partnership with the Tourist Development Council to produce a 30 second video thanks to a $2,000 grant. Bishop said the group has met with Robert Seidler, who will put the video together. Bishop said they want to show the quaint atmosphere of St. Marks and will feature the Stone Crab Festival. The video will be put on YouTube and other social sites. € The city was awarded a CDBG grant and awarded the bid for engineering to HydroEngineering and administration to Fred Fox. City Attorney Ron Mowrey looked over the contracts and said he has cleaned up both contracts and is waiting to hear back on both. € The city commission also discussed the need for a master plan for architecture, signage, etc. for the downtown area. Shields wanted the city to have a long range plan for how they want the downtown to look. And if a building is taken down, they can control what takes its place. Id hate to see it get hodgy podgy,Ž Shields said. Mans“ eld said she would like to see the utilities go underground. The commission agreed they would look at developing a plan. € Last month, the commission head from Max Creve with Educate the 3rd, who wanted to host a concert in St. Marks. Since that time, the city has been unable to contact Creve. His phone is disconnected and the groups website is down. According to Mowrey, the group is not an active non-pro“ t or for pro“ t Florida corporation. The next commission meeting will be held Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 18, 2011 – Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers’ convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netStarting the next “ scal year, county residents could see an increase in the “ re assessment from $61 a year to $75. This would mean non-residential would be charged 6 cents a square foot and land would be charged 17 cents per acre. At the Aug. 1 County Commission meeting, the commission voted unanimously to approve the preliminary rate resolution, which sets the maximum rate the county can charge. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said the commission can decide to lower the rate, but cannot increase it from the $75 rate. Commissioner Alan Brock said the commission lowered the rate from $75 to $61 last year and are simply taking it back to where it was before. Crawfordville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Darcy Brazier said technically it isnt an increase and said when the paid “ re“ ghters salaries were moved into the MSBU, it cut the volunteer “ re departments budgets drastically. It doesnt make up for the loss last year,Ž Brazier said, but it helps. Kurt Hindle, with the Wakulla County Fire Department, said even with the increase, the department will still be short to run a full service, which includes truck replacement and other improvements. Hindle said the department is trying to cut costs by having paid staff take a SUV instead of the “ re truck to certain jobs, not putting two “ re trucks out on the road, lowering water usage and by training in house. Currently, the department has “ ve full-time “ re“ ghters. Commissioner Lynn Artz said this a more fair way to collect taxes, by charging for a needed service. The commission will hold a public hearing on Sept. 6 to hear from the citizens and discuss the issue further. In other matters before the board: €The commission agreed to form the Wakulla County Airport Committee. The committee would ful“ ll the airport functions with citizen volunteers. The WCAC will consist of “ ve members including a chairperson and an airport manager. This group would be tasked with airport improvement and operation including: safety, visioning, strategic planning, grant application, project implementation, daily operation, fee collection, budgeting, reporting and accountability to the commission. The commission had discussed turning the airport back over to the Tarpine community, but Interim County Administrator Tim Barden said after speaking with the Florida Department of Transportation he was told that wasnt the best idea because money may be coming their way in a few years. A total of $431,818 in nonmatching grant funding is tentatively budgeted through 2016 for the Wakulla County Airport. Wakulla County would be excluded from receiving these funds and may have to repay the previous $75,000 grant award if the county decided to turn the airport over. I think it could be an economic engine,Ž Barden said. Commissioner Jerry Moore said he would only support this if the airport can pay its own way. Barden said the plan going forward is to make the airport budget neutral. € At the meeting, the commission also voted to schedule a public hearing establishing the district boundaries for the commissioners and school board. The charter requires the boundaries to be redrawn based on population, Barden said. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the 2010 census determined that the countys population has grown by 34.5 percent since the last census. The boundaries should be about even based on population, Stewart said. The boundaries no longer include the inmate population and the current commissioners and school board members will remain in the same district. The commission will hold a public hearing on a future date. € Stewart brought up the idea of asking DOT to continue with construction on Hwy. 319 during the hours of 6:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. Stewart said DOT seems very receptive to the idea, but needed a resolution requesting the change. The commission voted unanimously to approve and send the resolution. € Barden also discussed the reduction in furlough days for of“ ces under the Board of County Commissioner to one every two weeks, as opposed to every Friday. The remaining furlough days are Aug. 19, Sept. 2, Sept. 16 and Sept. 30.

Merritt said, We need to charge what things cost.Ž Sheets said they would do an analysis of the system that costs $15,000. There are two other steps in the process before ownership is transferred, but the only cost is for the “ rst phase. Public Works Director Cleve Fleming said the county had a rate study performed two years ago and has spent lots of money on plans and studies, but the commission will not move forward with them. Stewart said until the commission make a decision, nothing will happen and the sewer system wont improve. Weve got to fix it,Ž Stewart said. The boards got to move.Ž The workshop ended and it didnt seem the commission was in support of the option of transferring ownership, but agreed something needed to be done. Sidebar: Prior to the workshop, County Attorney Heather Encinosa wanted to make it clear that neither she nor her “ rm, Nabors, Giblin and Nickerson, have any interest or will pro“ t from this venture. Encinosa said she has been the counsel for the Florida Governmental Utility Authority since 1999, but would not represent the utility in this matter if the county chooses to go this route. Encinosa said any allegations that Government Services Group, which helps manage FGUA, and her law “ rm have any ownership or “ nancial interest between the two is completely false. She added that she understands there may be some confusion because her law “ rm helped start GSG several years ago, but divested any interest several years ago.… Jennifer JensenSelling the sewer system is discussed by countyCounty attorney also represents FGUAWe need to charge what things cost, a commissioner says of losing money providing sewer serviceST.

I can speak for all of us at CHAT when I say that we enjoyed spending time with your dogs at our event. The much-needed funds that we succeeded in raising for the homeless animals at CHAT met all of our expectations and more. Because of the donations of so many of our local businesses, this event was very successful. All of the money donated will be used for spaying, neutering, vaccinations, heartworm treatment and heartworm prevention, supplies, and other uses for our adoption center.

It seemed that many people there were not informed, so Im writing on behalf of the Wakulla County Recycle Task Force, to provide a few details. Our current solid waste program is not working! It is losing a halfmillion dollars per year, we are violating state regulations and polluting our drinking water, we are in danger of incurring expensive “ nes, we risk a court injunction, and more. Details of the two options being considered are listed below. The “ rst choice is the same proposal that the commission considered last year and did not approve. Either choice means that residents will pay a new fee on their property tax bill. The main differences are how much you will pay on your tax bill, how much you and other county taxpayers will pay (or save) in other ways, and what bene“ ts you will receive. $112 Solid Waste Assessment This would pay to 1) permanently cap/ seal the closed land“ ll; 2) monitor toxic releases (leaks) from our three closed land“ lls foreverŽ and 3) expand and upgrade our transfer station (at a cost of about $1 million) so we may legally continue to accept garbage, compact it, and ship it to a land“ ll in Marianna … and continue to accept and truck out recyclables. The county would continue to spend more than $300,000 per year to operate the transfer station. Residents would be able to drop off bags of garbage at the transfer station for free (saving residents without garbage pickup $100 per year). The satellite drop-off stations at Otter Creek and Smith Creek would be closed. Residents would still be able to hire one of several local waste haulers to pick up their garbage for $300 per year. Taxpayers should understand that most local haulers owe the county money and are not being charged interest on their debts. $196 Solid Waste Assessment This will pay for 1) once-a-week pick up of residential garbage at the end of your driveway, and 2) once-a-week pick up of recyclables at the end of your driveway. This also will pay to 1) permanently cap/seal the land“ ll; and 2) monitor toxic releases (leaks) from our three closed land“ lls forever.Ž Residents will be given one 96-gallon garbage can and as many recycling containers as desired. The franchisee will buy out all local waste haulers, paying them 15 months worth of their gross (not net) receipts … and will help them sell their equipment. Displaced employees will be given hiring preference by the franchisee. No large increases in the assessment will occur anytime soon. The franchisee will be under a 10-year contract that restricts annual increases to no more than the Consumer Price Increase and excess fuel surcharges. Annual increases must be approved by the county commission. The franchisee can drive to any address that receives mail. Residents with long driveways may leave their containers at or near the street (in an enclosure if desired) and drive their bags of garbage to the containers. Bear-proof containers may be requested for only an additional $6/year. The county will not incur any debt to build a new transfer station and illegal dumping is expected to decrease. As a local homeowner, I have also considered the cost to me. I do not have a large income, but I am in favor of the $196 option and think that this is a valuable service to me and for our county. Pamela Joy Chair, Recycle Task Force Editor, The News: I just want to be clear on what everyone is upset about. Our land“ ll is past the point of redemption and we have to “ x it. What must we do? Pay $112 in taxes. We shouldve started doing this a year ago, but we brushed it under the rug and now something must be done to avoid daily “ nes. I am a big proponent of You get what you pay forŽ so when the commissioners told me that for $196 our landfill would no longer be our responsibility AND I would get garbage pickup AND I would get recycling, I thought Whats the problem?Ž People are getting upset over $7 a month. Where can you get garbage service for $7 a month? Wakulla County! Yeah, I know its really $196 but you would be paying $112 of that regardless! Please, use your common sense. I strongly believe that everyone should pitch in to reap the rewards. What about the local garbage companies?The ones that are not regulated? The ones that owe the county thousands and thousands of dollars that they are paying back interest-free? The ones that are not dumping in our local dump, therefore we are not collecting the refuse fees from? Those guys? Well, in all actuality, they may go out of business anyway. If we regulate them as they should be (and should have been) they will most likely go out of business „ without a buyout or preferential hiring! You say WastePro can drastically increase their prices once they get the contract? Nope! Its a contract folks, a contract that is to be monitored by our government. They cant raise the prices without our of“ cials hearing about it and voting for it. Please think about what you are getting versus what you are paying for. I know you will see the value in this service. Thank You, Samantha Morsesamatha.morse@ymail.comEditor, The News: No one likes taxes and no one especially likes taxes increased at a time when the economy is struggling so much. That being said, taxes are necessary to run and fuel the services our government provides, whether local, state or federal. Recent comments have been made about how our county is not spending wisely. We know the county can do better at reducing waste and cutting the fat...Ž comment was made by a local resident. While general comments like that are thrown out by everyone, I believe it would be more productive to state where savings might be found. We all need to be creative and work to keep costs down while continuing to offer necessary services to local residents. Before we go making generalized comments though, lets work together to keep costs under control while ensuring our residents continue to receive necessary quality services. Lets not let the cut, cut, cut mentality so pervasive currently lead to cuts being made locally that will hurt Wakulla and Wakulla residents. Remember the job that is lost due to these cuts or lack of tax revenue could be that of your neighbor, friend or relative. Diane Wilson dwilson.1947@gmail.com e two options presented to the board What are people getting upset about? Lets be productive when talking about cuts

He said the county is paying her as a contractor, but terms are used in the contract to suggest she is an employee. James said if she is determined to be an employee, she would need to submit timesheets and be paid from countys payroll and payroll taxes would need to be deducted. James was also concerned with the county paying the director for additional hours other than her base salary, because he could not “ nd any documentation where the commission authorized the additional hours for Portwood, but authorized additional hours for the BP oil spill grant. The contract uses the phrase base salary possibly inferring there could be additional salary but it is not outlined in the contract and there are no Board minutes approving such hours,Ž James said. The additional hours total $9,747. In an email to Interim County Administrator Tim Barden, James states, ŽIf these matters, for whatever reason, are not addressed immediately, our of“ ce will have to withhold future payments to the director until these overpayments are corrected either through an amended contract or reimbursement.Ž At the Aug. 11 TDC meeting, Portwood said the commission approved the increase in hours, but did not change the contract. She added that at the request of Commissioner Alan Brock, the commission will clarify the contract to re” ect what the TDC is doing. Vice Chairman Richard Harden said he was under the assumption the contract had been amended when the TDC approved the changes last year. Portwood also brought up the questions raised by a group of citizens calling themselves Wakulla 411, as well as the emails and letter to the editor regarding her and the boards work and expressed anger in what she called a witch hunt.Ž We do great things. This group does great things and I do great work and Im proud of my work,Ž Portwood said. Board member Tim Jordan said, This is a small, insigni“ cant group.Ž He added that he didnt feel the board should be wasting a lot of time on this. Portwood said she was willing to meet with anyone who had questions regarding her or TDC, but now will only meet with a TDC board member present. Literally being sought after to be brought down, that to me is a threat,Ž Portwood said. Harden said he supported Portwood and added, Even though it makes for some interesting reading, it doesnt change my opinion of you.Ž Harden said the TDC tax, also known as a bed tax, has been unfairly characterized with other taxes. The tax is 2 percent and the proposed increase is 1 percent now and an additional 1 percent six months later. Harden said the TDC has a small budget and is competing with surrounding counties with a much bigger budget. He added that the negative comments about TDC counteracts all the positive they are trying to accomplish. Several citizens attended the TDC meeting, including members of Wakulla 411. Steve Fults said for some people the issue has become personal with Portwood, but it was not personal for him. Fults said when the clerk “ nds issues with the TDC that makes it clear there is an issue, not a witch hunt. He said the TDC has a responsibility to appropriately expend the money collected from the tax and he didnt feel that was being done. And were going to throw more money at this,Ž Fults said. He added that the TDC was letting the director do whatever without any oversight. Barden said Portwood has done nothing that wasnt approved by the board. Some have also expressed concern that the directors salary and benefits are a large chunk of the TDCs budget. Hugh Taylor said, The money for tourism isnt going to tourism. Thats my concern.Ž Portwood said that wasnt a fact and the issue of the contract was being addressed. Fults responded, After a whole lot of people bringing it up.Ž The county commission will amend the contract at the Sept. 6 meeting. Continued from Page 1AHe also said if the county chooses to implement a plan, it has to stick with the same projects laid out initially and keep moving ahead even if a new commission is elected. The Wakulla County plan is being called Our Town and incorporates elements of the Crawfordville Town Plan, which will focus on four intersections and develop them. To “ x the stopping of traf“ c,Ž said Paul Johnson of the chamber. The plan would be managed and funded through a public and private partnership. Johnson said the group was looking for the commission to agree to work with the chamber and the Economic Development Council on implementing the plan and coming up with a way to fund the project. We think working together we can crack this nut,Ž Johnson said. They are also looking at getting the sales tax increase on the ballot for 2012. Commissioner Mike Stewart said the group will need to educate the public and let them know what the bene“ t will be of the extra tax. Commissioner Jerry Moore agreed and said, The best example we can sell is Capital Circle.Ž A citizen committee will be put together to work on the plan, Johnson said. And U.S. 319 would just be the start of the plan. It would be a several years-long project,Ž Johnson said. Commissioner Alan Brock said the county cannot rely on the Department of Transportation to improve 319. If we dont take some of the responsibility ourselves, it may never happen,Ž Brock said. The commission was in full support of the plan and progressing. I know everyone in Wakulla County wants this,Ž Brock said. The plan will be presented to the commission in the future for approval.Staff reportWakulla County loves its pets and The Wakulla News is happy to bring back our Pet Photo Contest.

There are some things one just wants to hold on to … your history and family traditions. As we grew up as children, you had to respect people, and honor those to whom honor is due. There were some things you just did not do or say. The women in our family had a great respect for their home. Certain days were for cleaning. Your home was collaboration of family history. One should hold on to those things that have been taught, to build on them. If you have your own ideal or vision, dont destroy someone elses. When you build on traditions, they become wiser and stronger. Happy birthday to Eddie L. Brannen Jr., Lotaya Brannen, and Isiah Hines Jr. The Tallahassee Diocese Sunday School Convention 2011 will be held at Tabernacle Church of Christ Written in Heaven in Gretna on Aug. 23 to 28 at 8 p.m. nightly.

Things have long changed on the winding circuit that used to be even more winding and longer in the old days when I first visited the Glen back in the early 1960s. Staking out my spot at The Esses,Ž it was thrilling to watch the immortal Jim Clark, Graham Hill, and other Formula One legends roar around the famous western New York road course with the great elevation changes. But todays Cup racers face a simpler track layout, the short course,Ž comprised almost exclusively of right-handers (there is only one left-hand turn, Turn 6). To encourage higher speeds for the Cuppers, Watkins Glen paved critical runoff areas exiting turns 6 and 7 on the 2.45-mile course, which now allows the drivers to carry more speed and brake later entering those turns. Funny, but if you cock your head and look slightly askew at the short course layout, it comes across very much like a wobbly clockwise oval. RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY: The postponement of Sundays Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen … I know, doesnt that sound ridiculous? … with its yawning rain delay beforehand, again raises the question of when is the rain tire … already utilized in the Nationwide Series … going to be adopted by the Sprint Cup division of NASCAR. During the delay, Kyle Busch voiced strong opposition to the idea of ever racing in the rain. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver is clearly not supportive of bringing the rain tire to the Cup series, claiming impacts are hard enough in dry weather without the cars spinning every which way on slick surfaces. It was the second straight week that rain punched a two-hour hole or longer in the Cup race, the drivers having sat through the moisture at Pocono last week. LINE OF THE DAY: Jamie McMurray, interviewed by an ESPN reporter in the garage area during the delay about the effects of the wait on drivers eating habits: Rain delays are hard because you just go back to the hauler and snack the whole time. Its hard to sit here and watch you guys interview anybody with feet that walks through the garage and not want to eat.Ž The comment is both funny and observational of the taxing job that live reporters, both in the pits and in the studio, have before them when trying to kill vast amounts of down time.The author of 29 books on sports, Alan Ross is a contributing editor at American Pro“ le.

Page 10A – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 18, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWe just spent the last two weeks where the temperature may have reached 79 one day and got as low as 52. We spent our vacation with two other couples in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and in Packwood, Wash., near Mt. Rainier. On our way back to Seattle on Monday, we had a picnic at Paradise, which is the starting point for hikers going to the top of Mt. Rainier. Problem was “ nding a picnic table that wasnt covered with snow. Vancouver Island was very beautiful but also very expensive. We paid as much as $5 for a gallon of gas. We didnt do any “ shing there but in a little town of Tal“ no they were coming in with limits of 20 to 30 pound king salmon. Some of the boats were trolling with 14 weight ” y rods and a spinner that stayed near the surface. The guide we talked to said it was pretty exciting to see a 30-pound king salmon hit top water bait. We “ shed in Packwood one day and caught and released some small trout in a stream. The house we stayed in had a view of Mt. Rainier out the back window. If youre ever up that way, get your gas at the Chevron station. They pump your gas and wash your windshield. I didnt think anyone still did that. It was a great trip but nice to be back home. I talked to the folks at Shell Island Fish camp and they said not many folks are “ shing because of the heat and those who are going are having not doing real well. Some folks are getting their limits of scallops while others are struggling. They said the best place right now seems to be between Gray Mare and Cobb Rocks, way east of the Lighthouse, and in about 5 to 7 feet of water. They also said they are starting to get shrimp on a regular basis though they are rather small right now. Capt. David Fife “ shed Thursday and Friday with some of his buddies from Destin and they caught their limits of reds each day using live mud minnows and small finger mullet. They also had one 23-inch trout. They “ shed around the oyster bars between Spring Creek and Panacea. David said there are still plenty of sharks around and they saw quite a few pushing “ ve feet. They also saw quite a few tarpon out in front of Smith Island. A friend of Davids “ shed Sunday and caught six reds over 22 inches using live minnows and “ shing around Smith Island. Capt. Randy Peart said that he “ shed last week at St. George and fishing was absolutely incredible. There was a shrimp run and he said “ sh were chasing shrimp to the top everywhere. They caught numerous bull reds, lots of ” ounder, speckled trout and silver trout. He said he had never seen anything like it. He also talked to Capt. James Burke and he said “ shing was real poor at the Econ“ na and Aucilla and he was running all the way to St. Marks to catch his “ sh. As always happens, when I travel a long distance on a plane I come home and come down with something. I feel like Ive had the ” u for about a week. I “ shed with Dr. Shuford Davis on Sunday although I didnt feel like it. We ended up with “ ve nice ” ounder, six trout, two small cobia and numerous blues and lady“ sh. Everything was caught on the Gulp. We tried for reds but didnt even get a bite and the high winds late in the day ran us in. When there are three-foot seas in front of Piney its time to retreat. I talked with Millard Collins at C-Quarters in Carrabelle about the King“ sh Tournament. They had 48 boats entered in the tournament and they donated $30,000 to the Leukemia Foundation. The team of Florida Panhandle Outdoors from Panama City placed “ rst with a 42.9 pound king. The team of Weather Makers placed second with a king weighting 37.8 pounds and Bluewater Predator Team came in third with a 36-pound king. They paid money to the top 10 teams. Congratulations to Jimmy Crowder and his entire team for another successful tournament for such a great cause. The Kevins Seatrout Shootout will be held on Aug. 27 and it will be based out of C-Quarters in Carrabelle. Its awfully hot out there so if youre gonna go, go early or late. Wear plenty of sunscreen and take plenty of water. Remember to leave that ” oat plan and be careful out there.

According to the National Visitor Use Monitoring report released today by Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell, national forests attracted 170.8 million recreational visitors and sustained approximately 223,000 jobs in rural communities this past year. This data shows once again just what a boon our forests are to local economies,Ž said Tidwell. Because of forest activities, thousands of jobs are supported in hundreds of rural communities. We are proud of helping to put a paycheck into the pockets of so many hardworking Americans.Ž National forests also provide economic relief for vacationers. Fewer than half of the U.S. Forest Services 17,000 developed sites charge any fees for visitors. The report reveals that 94 percent of visitors were satis“ ed with their experience on the national forests. Our national forests are some of the most beautiful and adventure-“ lled places in the world,Ž said Tidwell. The national forests give Americans a chance to build life-long memories for the price of food and gas. Youd be hard pressed to “ nd any vacation destinations that offer better value.Ž The “ ndings of the report support the efforts of President Obamas Americas Great Outdoors Initiative that seeks to connect people with conservation issues as well as the First Ladys Lets Move! Outside campaign that aims to get more kids and their families physically active by exploring the outdoors. Recreational activities such as hiking, camping, boating and skiing instill a healthier lifestyle and a deeper appreciation of nature. Researchers interviewed 44,700 visitors to the forests in 2010, ranging from commuters to wilderness trekkers. Overall, some 72 percent of those interviewed were in the forest for recreation. According to the report: € Recreation activities on National Forests and Grasslands sustain 223,000 jobs in the rural communities within 50 miles of the national forests and grasslands, where visitors purchase goods and services for their recreational activity. € Visitors spend $13 billion directly in those communities within 50 miles of the national forests and grasslands. € Visitor satisfaction is very high, with an overall satisfaction rate of 94 percent. € Approximately 83 percent of visitors are content with the value received for any fees paid. € Nearly 95 million visitors (over 55 percent) come to a forest to primarily engage in physical activity. We cant rest with the release of this report. We need to work hard to maintain our infrastructure across the country,Ž Tidwell said. And we need to continue to work with our partners to protect and restore our natural landscapes in a time of development, pest infestation and a changing climate.Ž Descriptions of visitation to national forests and grasslands from the report are available at http://apps. fs.usda.gov/nrm/nvum/results. The mission of the USDA Forest Service is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nations forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. The Agency manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to State and private landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world.National forests have strong economic impact From FWC NewsA Naples “ sherman is facing 69 charges after law enforcement of“ cers discovered a large illegal catch in his boat Sunday.

My heart sank when I saw the news reports and I was shocked by the enormity of the situation. It goes to show that weather can come quickly and leave chaos in her path. Where we are, there is not much shelter to “ nd quickly when weather strikes out in the bay. Other than St. Marks and Shell Point, the ” ats do not offer much protection. Would you know what to do if a storm brewed quickly and you did not have warning enough to make it back to the docks? I can remember being about 5 years old when our family got caught out in Lake Erie when a storm hit. We did not have warning and raced to get back to the dock as water spouts sprouted and tornado warnings were rampant. My dad drove the boat (about 20 footer) with three adults and “ ve kids back to the dock, ran it aground and sent us all up to the cabin while he did his best to secure it. My mom and aunt were in front and behind all “ ve kids and we were holding hands running. Once we reached the cabin, we were all put under our cots for safety until the storms passed. Thankfully, we all made it unharmed, and the only damage was a water-logged weather radio. A few rules of thumb are good to remember if you do get caught out in a storm and cannot make it to safe shelter: First, make sure everyone is wearing a life jacket. Then, “ gure out where you are in case you need to call for help. Mark it on your GPS and also write it down in the event your electronics fail. Drop your anchor so that you dont get blown all over. Let out at least a 10:1 ratio of rope to depth to allow some additional support. Have everyone move to a safe part of the boat and get down as low as possible. Put down antennas and other items that may attract lightning. As we all know, electricity and water dont mix well! Be prepared to call for help if needed. In the event you are in danger or need immediate assistance, call for help on Channel 16 of your VHS radio. If you call for help, have ” ares and other signaling items ready for use, but dont use them unless there is someone out there to see or hear it. As always, the Auxiliary is prepared to help you make sure you have everything you need onboard in the event of an emergency. For a free vessel safety exam, “ nd one of us dockside or feel free to contact one of us or send an e-mail to FSO-VE@uscgaux.net or check out what is required at www.uscgaux. net. As Sherrie reminds us, safe boating is no accident, a few extra minutes preparing and making sure you are ready to leave the dock can mean the difference in you making it back safely!Special to The NewsSea Tow Services International, Inc. announced it has completed installation of its revolutionary Automated Radio Check (ARC) boating safety service through its network of Sea Tow franchises, and will make the free public service available nationwide through additional marine outlets. Boaters now are able to obtain radio checks through the Sea Tow ARC service in major coastal boating markets across the U.S., including the East Coast, Gulf of Mexico and Southern California, as well as in select inland regions. The “ rst boating safety program of its kind, Sea Tow ARC is made possible due to Sea Tows ongoing relationship with marine communications specialist MariTEL. Conducting a radio check through the Sea Tow ARC service couldnt be simpler. All boaters need to do is tune their VHF radios to Channel 24, 26, 27 or 28, depending on the region, key the mic, and ask for a radio check. The ARC system responds to each radio check with an automated reply, and also replays to the boaters original radio transmission, allowing him or her to assess the strength of the signal and con“ rm the VHF radio is in good working order. To find the Sea Tow ARC service channel in a particular region, all you have to do is visit www. seatow.com/boating_safety/ARC.asp. The web page also links to an instructional video demonstrating how to use the service step by step. Its the same procedure you would use to get a radio check on Channel 9, but it doesnt require a fellow boater or watchstander to answer your hail; its automated,Ž said Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer, founder, chairman and CEO of Sea Tow Services International. A properly working VHF is essential safety equipment on every boat. Equally important to boater safety in general is the fact that the ARC system helps reduce unnecessary chatter on Channel 16.Ž Excessive radio traf“ c on Channel 16 (156.8) continues to be a challenge for Coast Guard Rescue Coordination Centers,Ž said Capt. David A. McBride, U.S. Coast Guard Chief of the Of“ ce of Search and Rescue. Although not explicitly prohibited, routine radio checks conducted on Channel 16 can interfere with vital distress and safety communications. Sea Tow is happy to be playing our part to help the Coast Guard at no extra cost to boaters,Ž Frohnhoefer said. Our ARC service is available to everyone free of charge, regardless of whether they are Sea Tow members or not.ŽSea Tow o ers Automated Radio CheckInnovative boating safety program helps reduce disruptive radio chatter on channel 16 THE CABINET SHOPTHECABINET SHOP Custom Kitchens&Counter Tops PARTNER… www.thewakullanews.comServing Wakulla County For More Than A CenturyThe Wakulla News while quantities last.

The U.S. Coast Guard or sheriffs of“ ce has someones diving equipment that needs inspection to determine if it has malfunctioned. Over the years, our team of volunteer professionals that also dive Closed Circuit Rebreathers (CCR), have perfected protocols to evaluate diving equipment and the incident that surrounds them in the hope we may “ nd ways to avoid diving injuries. Our team came out of a Divers Alert Network (DAN) meeting to evaluate CCR fatalities. Since 1960 there have been around 180 deaths while using these life support platforms, but very little was investigated at the time, so there was little known about the cause. The outcome of the meeting resulted in my invitation to create a protocol to investigate future incidents. I started with what authorities were currently using. Because the list was extensive, I invited several colleagues to join me in sorting out what may work and what may not. I invited Dr. Joerg Hess (a frequent contributor to this column), who is an engineer, and Dr. Jon Conard, M.D., who practices Emergency Medicine and is a hyperbaric chamber medical of“ cer. Also asked to assist was Suzanne Floyd, a former Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigator, now teaching criminology at Gulf Coast Community College. We sorted and debated every step. In the end, we compiled a multi-page document that begins at the dive site with steps to preserve data contained in the equipment, then advises the medical examiner on what to look for if there was a fatality, extends through a performance analysis of the life support technology and “ nally an analysis of the incident itself from police records. We were then asked to test the protocols on an old case and found limited success. After that, agencies began requesting our assistance. Today, our team is organized as a not-for-pro“ t corporation with a few more investigative specialists, including an attorney and two-deep representation (in case of con” ict of interest). What began as research into a protocol to collect better data has developed into a pro bono service to law enforcement. And what have we found? As in most cases on land, the prevailing contributor to a diving incident is human error. While there are many contributing factors such as distraction, complacency and poor judgement, one stands out more than the rest: Exceeding ones level of training. The individual who dives beyond his depth limit faces more unknowns than he is prepared for, unfamiliar technology behaves in an unfamiliar way, and new places (like a cave) cause people to perform in an unsafe manner if you are not trained for it. There is an old saying common to many high risk activities. There are old divers and there are bold divers, but there are no old, bold divers. I have taken this experience into our classroom, and used it in lectures, training all levels from basic scuba all the way up to Advanced Rebreather Cave Diving. We strongly believe in the National Association of Underwater Instructors motto: Safety Through Education. All of our courses are longer so that we can expose our students to the greater volume of information available. Diving is relatively safe if you know what you are doing!

George Ellis could have faced a maximum of “ ve years in state prison on the charge. He entered a plea to the charge in open court on Wednesday, Aug. 10, before Wakulla Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford. According to the arrest report in the court file, Deputy Jeremy Johnston was on patrol back in June at about 2 a.m. and saw the flash of brake lights in the Splash N Dash car wash. The deputy went to investigate and saw Ellis sitting in a car, and he appeared upset. There was a case of beer on the seat near him and the deputy allegedly caught a glimpse of a handgun. According to the arrest report, Johnston talked to Ellis and the man reportedly told him, My (expletive) wife is cheating on me and Im going to make things right.Ž Asked what he meant, Ellis reportedly answered: What do you think?Ž Asked if he had a concealed weapon permit, Ellis reportedly answered: What does that matter?Ž Johnston ran a check on the .357 “ rearm and it came back as reported stolen from Gadsden County in 1997. Ellis claimed he had the gun since he was 16. The pistol was seized, along with some loose ammunition and a knife. In other court matters this week: € An 19-year-old Crawfordville man pleaded no contest to burglary of a dwelling while armed, a “ rst-degree felony punishable by life, and possession of burglary tools, a seconddegree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison, and was sentenced to 10 years in state prison under the 10-20-life law. The man, Peter Will, had asked for leniency in his case at his hearing on Thursday, Aug. 11, and to be sentenced as a youthful offender, which is an exception to the 10-20-life minimum mandatory sentences. That law requires a 10 year sentence for a crime committed with a “ rearm, 20 years if the gun is “ red, and life if anyone is injured. Will admitted he was wearing dark clothes, a mask and gloves and had armed himself with a .380 pistol and a knife for the break-in. Wills mother, Patricia Pater, told the court that the pistol wasnt loaded and begged that he be given a chance to redeem himself. Will told the court that he knew no one was in the home at the time he was attempting to burglarize it, and that he just happened to have the “ rearm on him. The knife, he said, was being used to break in to the house … not as a weapon. At the time this happened, I was just 18 years old,Ž Will said. Drugs were a major contributing factor... I wasnt thinking about anybody but myself at that time.Ž Assistant State Attorney Lorena Vollrath-Bueno told the court that Will had a juvenile criminal history and, after he got out on bond, he was arrested in Leon County on attempted armed robbery. When he was subsequently arrested by the U.S. Marshals Violent Fugitive Task Force, he had a variety of drugs on him, Vollrath-Bueno said. Assistant Public Defender Brian Higgins asked the court to give his client one more shot, to sentence Will to four years as a youthful offender. But Wakulla Circuit Judge N. Sanders Sauls called the crime an egregious offenseŽ and sentenced Will to 10 years in prison, minimum mandatory, followed by 10 years of probation. Judge Sauls made a “ nding that circumstances dont justify his sentencing as a youthful offender.Ž € Andrew Lee Baxley, 20, pleaded no contest to several cases of burglary and grand theft on Wednesday, Aug. 10, as part of a plea deal that saw him sentenced to three years in state prison followed by “ ve years probation. In one case, latent “ ngerprints were found at a burglarized home where a 64-inch flat-screen TV had been stolen in December 2010. In took several months for the state crime lab to return the results, which found a match with Baxley. According to the arrest report, Baxley admitted selling the TV for $100 which he used to purchase drugs. Tallahassee attorney Baya Harris represented Baxley. Judge Fulford accepted the plea. € William Wayne Porter, 22, pleaded no contest to aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, burglary of a conveyance, felony criminal mischief and battery and was sentenced to 86 months in state prison followed by six years probation. Porter also had four more cases of burglary and grand theft, as well as charges of stealing copper. According to the court “ les, in January, Porter was drinking and wanted to drive his girlfriends 2002 Nissan Maxima sedan, but she refused to give him the keys. He began hitting her, but she got away and went inside her house … and he busted of the windows of her car with a bottle of vodka. When she went outside, he hit her with the liquor bottle. When she said she was going to call her father, Porter ran and hid in the woods, the report said. Two burglary cases were related to stealing boat motors in Shell Point in November 2010 … a 15 horsepower motor valued at $1,200 and a 9.9 horse valued at $1,000. In March, one of the boat motors was located at a Crawfordville home where the man who bought it told a detective he knew it was underpriced when he bought it for $300. The deputy, Nicholas Boutwell, wrote in his report that, a short time later, while headed towards Spring Creek, he observed Porter traveling down Roddenberry Sink Road. Knowing Porter didnt have a valid driver license, Boutwell stopped Porter. He told him he wanted to ask some questions about some stolen boat motors and asked him to come to the sheriffs office for an interview. Porter reportedly agreed, but told the deputy to put me in handcuffs because people are watching.Ž € On Thursday, Aug. 11, Judge Sauls sentenced Jeffrey Johnson, 22, to “ ve years probation with the condition of 180 days in the Wakulla County Jail for armed robbery with a “ rearm. Johnson was with a group of young men who intended to rob a local drug dealer, but his attorney, Chuck Hobbs, insisted that Johnson did not know that one of the men had a gun. Assistant State Attorney Angelique Hudgens asked the court to sentence Johnson to “ ve years in prison, contending it was mind bogglingŽ that Johnson could claim he didnt know one of the co-defendants had a gun. Hudgens noted that, according to Mapquest, the young men walked 1.5 miles to the robbery site that night. She produced a long, bolt-action ri” e that was allegedly used in the robbery and noted that the co-defendant who carried the ri” e was only “ ve-feet, six inches tall. And you didnt realize he had a gun?Ž Hudgens asked. Johnson denied it. Sauls allowed a departure from the sentencing guidelines, finding that Johnson was a youthful offender, ordered him to serve the six months in jail with credit for two days served, with no work release authorized, and to go into intensive outpatient treatment. € Tevin Gardner pleaded no contest to robbery by sudden snatching in exchange for a sentence in which adjudication was withheld, meaning there was no court determination of guilt, and he must serve two years of probation with the condition of 30 days in the sheriffs work camp. Gardner, 19, entered the plea on Wednesday, Aug. 10. He was one of “ ve men charged with robbing a Pizza Hut delivery driver on Dec. 23 last year when she attempted to deliver pizzas on Cayuse Drive. According to the court “ le, one of the men was on the porch of a home while others were in the back yard behind a privacy fence. When the delivery driver approached with the pizzas, the men in the backyard ran out and grabbed the pizzas. The stolen pizzas were valued at $56 and the delivery bag was valued at $50. The delivery bag was later recovered in the neighborhood. € Jordan Lamar Barwick admitted violating his probation on underlying charges of burglary and robbery and was sentenced to “ ve years in state prison on Wednesday, Aug. 10. While on probation in February, Barwick picked up new charges of ” eeing an of“ cer and possession of cannabis. According to the arrest report, deputies were dispatched to Panacea on a report of a “ ght in progress and a person being attacked with a baseball bat. When the of“ cer arrived on Fishing Fool Road, Barwick was seen getting into his Chevrolet truck and backing down the road in an effort to get away. He drove into National Wildlife Refuge property and eventually abandoned his truck and got away on foot. The deputy seized the truck. In the vehicle was a metal baseball bat, and some marijuana and rolling papers. After he was arrested on the new charges and for violating his probation, Barwick got more charges in jail when he and two other inmates were caught trying to smuggle tobacco. On June 15, correction officers noticed one inmate on anothers shoulders on a bunk bed and a third inmate trying to help them … they were later determined to be trying to retrieve tobacco thrown to an open window. A young woman, one of the mens girlfriends, was arrested outside the jail. € Amanda Colston, a woman who faced life in prison for aiding a home invasion robbery in which the men robbing the home were armed, was sentenced as a youthful offender and, as part of a plea deal, was ordered to serve a year and a day in prison. Because of the seriousness of the crime, Colston scored a minimum sentence of 110 months to life in prison. But Assistant State Attorney Lorena VollrathBueno was willing to waive the sentencing guidelines. Attorney Jeff Arrowood presented a case in which he claimed Colston was hanging out with the wrong people … a boyfriend had led her down a wayward path, and she helped set up a friend for the robbery. According to testimony, the friend whose home was robbed had a dog, but Colston knew the family and had befriended the dog, and enabled the two men to force their way into the home for the armed robbery. At her sentencing on Thursday, Aug. 11, Judge Sauls sentenced Colston to a year and day with credit for 35 days served, followed by 10 years probation. € Roy Ivester pleaded no contest to charges of possession of controlled substance with intent to sell and sale of controlled substance … both seconddegree felonies punishable by 15 years in prison … and, as part of a plea deal, was sentenced to 36 months of probation. More serious charges of traf“ cking were dropped by the state. Ivester, 51, of St. Marks, was allegedly selling prescription pills. In November 2010, deputies arranged an undercover drug buy and Ivester was charged. Ivester was represented by Tallahassee attorney Don Pumphrey. The plea was accepted by Judge Fulford.Court shorts

Lynda S. Hutcheson was charged with theft, criminal use of a personal identi“ cation and exploitation of the elderly on July 20 for an incident at Score Credit Union where she withdrew funds without authorization. As the case investigation expanded into August, Hutcheson was charged with grand theft and 39 counts of criminal use of personal information. Hutcheson was a caregiver for her 100-year-old grandmother in Crawfordville. During the investigation, detectives discovered that Hutcheson drove the victim to businesses on daily errands to pick up items for her and she used the victims credit card during the transactions. The victims family was noti“ ed by a banking institution after the accounts became overdrawn. The victims bank determined that more than $9,000 worth of charges were created on her bank accounts. A warrant was issued July 21 for Hutcheson for petit theft, criminal use of personal information and exploitation of the elderly for the May 8 credit union withdrawal. Thirty-nine other withdrawals were discovered at Centennial Bank, Wal-Mart, Publix and Winn-Dixie that totaled $11,156 that resulted in her Aug. 12 arrest while in jail. Her bond increased from $15,000 to $95,000 at her “ rst appearance Saturday, Aug. 13. She has remained in the Wakulla County Jail since July 20.

One such place is the atrium surrounded by the hallways of Wakulla High School. The area is 900 square feet of openroofed space enclosed by picture windows surrounded by the pathway of approximately 1,600 people on a typical school day. What caught my eye one day as I made my daily trek from my classroom to the of“ ce was the sunlight streaming through the windows. With a few minutes to spare I stopped to survey the atrium and noticed the remnants of past landscaping endeavors. A well-constructed raised bed, a winding walkway, and a half-buried patio formed the framework of the space. Even though it was covered with grass, a few overgrown plants, and a thriving wisteria vine, I could see potential. I began thinking of a garden space that would offer a peaceful retreat from the hectic scurry of daily high school life. Having recently discussed Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and what they do in the community with Director Jo Ann Palmer, I recruited her help. She in turn got her board of directors approval to take on this beauti“ cation project and we were underway. WHS principal Michael Crouch was appreciative of the interest and support and gave his permission for the project to begin. A committee of teachers met and came up with a landscaping plan that involved various student groups. The woodworking classes, taught by Keith Moore, would build an arbor to tame the overgrown wisteria vine and provide a shady retreat. The culinary classes would maintain an herb garden to use in their cooking classes. The art classes, taught by Cassie Tucker, would create a splash of color by making a mosaic on the concrete picnic table. Volunteer groups, such as AVID and NJROTC, would help with the building and maintenance of the garden over time, along with their instructors, Pam Smith, Ron Huddleston and Mike Stewart. Betsy Smith, landscape designer and alumnus of WHS, volunteered her professional services to re“ ne the landscape design and help select plants and hardscape materials for the garden. She spent many hours consulting and helping to install materials in just the perfect location. Her insight and expertise transformed the landscape plan from paper to a beautiful garden. Thanks to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce work crew, the pre-construction phase of clearing grass, removing pavers, removing overgrown plants, and painting was accomplished within the “ rst week. They returned later in the project to help excavate the walkway and patio areas. The soil was then enriched with the addition of mushroom compost donated by Tallahassee Nurseries and peat moss, donated by Rodney Bennett, a teacher at WHS. Bryan and Suzanne Camp of Bryans Lawn Care Service transported the compost which they helped spread and work into the existing soil with the help of the NJROTC cadets and \Huddleston and Stewart. WHS teacher Pam Smith and AVID students Danielle Gray and Ciarra Harris spruced up the raised bed timbers with a coat of stain donated by ACE Hardware. They also painted the garden bench to match the freshly painted walls. Plants for the garden were generously provided by Gourds & Gophers Plant Nursery, Just Fruits and Exotics, and Ace Hardware. They were planted by volunteers Shelby Williams, Suzanne Camp, Deborah Madden… all teachers at WHS. John Madden and Bryan Camp, husbands of the volunteers, were also enlisted to assist. Ewing Irrigation Products donated all the materials needed for a micro-jet system to keep the garden watered. The irrigation system was installed by volunteer John Madden, a teacher at Riversprings Middle School. The patio area was constructed by the husband and wife team of Levi and Ashley Workowski, both alumni of WHS. Along with John Madden, this team worked for 11 hours straight on a hot day in July to complete two patio areas. Their professional work is evident in the “ nished product which required custom cutting of most of the concrete pavers to create the curved lines of the patios. Brooks Concrete donated the paver base, sand, and gravel needed to construct the patio. Gulf Coast Lumber & Supply Inc. donated all the lumber, hardware, and concrete that will be used to build the arbor this fall. Cash donations by longtime supporter of KWCB, Alice Veasman, and Don Conn of Bevis Funeral Home helped cover the expenses of paint, gravel, and stones. Woody Palmer donated the pine straw mulch for the plant beds and transported many materials from the stores to WHS during the project. To date, a total of nine businesses and 26 community volunteers have donated their time, money, goods and services for this project. More than 566 volunteer hours valued at over $11,000 and almost $3,000 worth of products and cash contributions have been donated. The purpose of this garden is to create a peaceful space within the busy learning community of WHS where people can relax, enjoy a quiet conversation, or just spend a thoughtful moment in their busy day. This project has been made possible with local support and the partnership between WHS and KWCB. This is how a community builds a garden. Thank you to all those who contributed.

PHOTO BY BILL DICKMAN/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSearch underway for Tallahassee boaterA search was underway on Tuesday, Aug. 16, for a Tallahassee man who failed to return from a “ shing trip Monday in Apalachee Bay. David Richard Clark, 61, launched his 18-foot Carolina skiff Monday morning at Lighthouse Boat Ramp in Newport. He was due back around 1 p.m. A friend reported him missing about 6:30 p.m. Of“ cers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and U.S. Coast Guard responded and began a search of the area. They located Clarks drifting, unoccupied vessel about 11:30 p.m. Monday. Based on the GPS onboard his vessel, we know the vessel made several sharp turns and the location of those turns, and then the vessel began drifting,Ž said FWC Maj. Dave Pridgen. The search is centered in an area three to four miles south of where the Aucilla River enters the bay.Ž Pridgen said the search continues and has been aided by several volunteers.


By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netLocal artist Mike Kinsey loves to learn new things and his latest endeavor is mastering the technique of sandblast art. If you go through a day and dont learn one thing, its a wasted day,Ž Kinsey says. He “ rst became interested in sandblast art or surface etching in 2009. He started with small glass engravings and then decided to explore the technique more and went on the computer. He found images of sandblast art and was intrigued. I said, Oh, I have got to do this,Ž Kinsey says. He says he has always liked to work with his hands, from drawing when he was a little kid to getting into wood working when he got older and lathe work. He then switched to glass. To be able to create things … oh, I just love it,Ž Kinsey says. He started working with small glass, but he hit a setback in January 2010 when a severe storm came through Wakulla County and lightning struck his home, exploding the TV in his bedroom. Kinsey says he was outside in his workshop when the storm started and knew he needed to make it to his house. I took off running, splashing, all the way to the house,Ž Kinsey says. Lightning struck one right after the other, hitting trees in his backyard. Once inside the house, he smelled smoke and realized it was coming from his bedroom. He closed off the door and called 911. The “ re department was able to save his home, but it was in poor condition. At least God left a house,Ž Kinsey says. Kinsey says he spent the next year rebuilding his home. Towards the end of 2010, he started sandblasting again, picking up where he left off. Ive progressed,Ž Kinsey says. He bought equipment needed for his art and his friend bought him a small blast cabinet where he can work on small objects and he bought an on-site blaster for doors and mirrors. He also started ordering precut stencils to put on the glass. The stencils come in three layers, one layer peels away so the stencil will stick to the glass, then there is a protective layer that once peeled away exposes the stencil, and the stencil itself.

By SCOTT JOYNER WCPL Director This week Id like to share with you a great story of how WCPL helped one of our volunteers get employed in this tough economy. Kay, who comes in each Monday to vacuum and comes in throughout the week when she can to help us in other areas, started taking some of our computer classes a few months ago, to not only occupy her time but to gain skills that seem to be more and more needed in todays techsavvy world. She learned everything from Social Networking to Microsoft Of“ ce to Skype. After she became fairly well versed in multiple computer programs, she was hired by a relative to do data entry and tech support for the relatives company. The skills she picked up, free of charge, from our computer classes are what enabled her to do this. We encourage anyone who can to take advantage of the free classes that were offering to either brush up on your computer skills, or learn new ones. These skills will not only make you more attractive to potential employers, but can make it much easier to keep in touch with family and friends. Classes for the next week are mentioned below and the schedule for August and September is on our website (www. wakullalibrary.org) or at the front desk. While every class is free, they do require early registration as seating is limited. Computer classes Aug. 18 to 25 On Tuesday, Aug. 18. were offering: Computer Basics: Getting Started at 9:30 a.m. followed by Microsoft Word 2007: Getting Started at 1:30 p.m. On Tuesday. Aug. 23, we have My First Laptop: What You Need to Know at 9:30 a.m., Digital Photography: Understanding Camera Basics at 1:30 p.m. and Facebook: Getting Started at 5:30 p.m. Lastly on Thursday, Aug. 25, the classes are, Computer Basics: Sur“ ng the Internet at 9:30 a.m., Microsoft Word 2007: Formatting Multi-Page Documents at 1:30 p.m. and a second Facebook: Getting Started class at 5:30 p.m. Furlough Closing WCPL will be closed on Friday, Aug. 19, due to a county mandated furlough day. We will have our normal hours of 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20. Page 2B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 18, 2011 www.thewakullanews.comLibrary News... Tail Wagger...By HEIDE CLIFTON of CHAT Most people who read The Wakulla News are aware that CHAT of Wakulla and I have a yearly sale of Heritage roses that are propagated at my place. A good friend of mine, who helped me with my “ rst misting system and my “ rst rose-sale to bene“ t the animals of Wakulla County, passed away a couple of weeks ago. His name was William Kerber and he was in charge of the roses at Goodwood Plantation in Tallahassee. Bill Kerber was a captain in the U.S. Army in the Biological Warfare Service, earned a doctorate in veterinary medicine from Iowa State University and volunteered at Goodwood Museums and Gardens for the last 20 years. He also served as the director of laboratory animal medicine at Florida State University. During his veterinary career he specialized in the compassionate care of research animals. Dr. Kerber and I were both members of the Tallahassee Rose Society and our interest in roses brought us to the conclusion the Heritage Roses, that do not need a lot of care as do the fancy Hybrid Teas, were the way to go. I learned from him how to propagate roses and to take care of them properly. About 15 years ago, I was complaining that we needed a good fundraiser for the animals and he helped me, as I already stated, with the “ rst try of growing and selling roses. We made $600 that first year and I thought that we hit the jackpot. This is how it started and now on a regular basis, we make between $3,500 and $4,000 a year. Dr. Kerber was at every event I had for the last 15 years and his presence and knowledge of roses will be missed by the people he helped to pick out varieties that were right for them. I remember a trip we took with several members of the Tallahassee Rose Society to Natchez, Miss. We visited the National Cemetery where we saw rose bushes that were big and beautiful with trunks like trees. Nobody had pruned or cleaned them up over the last hundred years and it was amazing to see how well the Old Garden Roses survived over time. The roses for the 2012 rose sale are coming along and doing well. Hopefully I will see many of you at my next rose-sale in April 2012. As always, my ads will be in The Wakulla News. Hope to see you then. Just a quick reminder. If you want your pet chipped, we have just the place for you to get it done.

For those who have paddled these waters in a canoe or kayak, the Native American place names evoke winding streams and shaded hammocks, shimmering coastal waters and wild tree islands. Florida is made for paddling. Doug Aldersons Wild Florida WatersŽ places Floridas unsurpassed beauty and abundant wildlife in the forefront, from the mangrove labyrinth of the Ten Thousand Islands to the springfed Ichetucknee River. It also includes an exciting dose of paddling adventures, whether its tipping over in the Suwannee Rivers Big Shoals rapids, sur“ ng wind-generated waves while paddling the remote Apalachee Bay, or meeting up with a different form of wild lifeŽ on the St. Marks River. Through all of the adrenalin, a strong conservation message permeates the volume, and useful how-to information is included at the end of each chapter. Its meant to be more than a paddling guide,Ž said Alderson. I wanted to evoke a sense of place in the waterways that I feature, and many of the tales have a humorous vein.Ž Alderson has authored two other books that focus on paddling in Florida, including New Dawn for the Kissimmee River: Orlando to Okeechobee by Kayak,Ž winner of the 2010 Excellence in Craft Award by the Florida Outdoor Writers Association. His “ rst book, Waters Less Traveled,Ž focused on the environment, history and paddling along the remote Big Bend Florida Coast. The book was runner-up for best travel book of 2006 by the North American Travel Journalists Association. Several of Floridas leading paddlers have read and endorsed Wild Florida Waters, including Bill Richards, executive director of Paddle Florida. It is past time somebody wrote a book of this caliber,Ž he said. The book is a treasure trove of information for nature enthusiasts.Ž Warren Richey, a journalist with the Christian Science Monitor and author of Without a Paddle: Racing Twelve Hundred Miles Around Florida by Sea Kayak,Ž added, The book is a celebration of a part of Florida most visitors „ and many residents „ never see, a celebration of what old-timers call the real Florida.Ž Several Big Bend waterways are featured in the 274-page volume, including the Apalachicola River, Graham Creek, the Forgotten Coast, Tates Hell, Apalachee Bay, Ochlockonee River, Sopchoppy River, St. Marks River, Wacissa River and Slave Canal. The book also features 89 black and white photos. Wild Florida Waters, retailing for $14.95, is available on Amazon and at select area businesses.

And that wasnt all the courtroomand lawyer-related drama. The Department of Justice approved parts of the states controversial elections law, while the quasi-judicial Public Service Commission took up a rate case that could end with almost $200 million being passed on to FPL consumers. Meanwhile, Gov. Rick Scott made ripples with a personnel decision while two long-time “ gures on the political scene bowed out of their high-pro“ le jobs. APPEALS COURT NIXES HEALTHCARE MANDATE, BUT UPHOLDS LAW The appeals court ruling on the healthcare law had something for almost everyone to like and many people to hate. The court called the laws requirement that all Americans buy health insurance an unprecedented exercise of congressional powerŽ that ran afoul of the U.S. Constitution. But while the divided three-judge panel struck down the linchpin of the healthcare overhaul that President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats pushed through in 2010, it allowed the rest of the law to stand. That overturned part of the “ ndings of Pensacola federal judge Roger Vinson, who ruled that the entire health care law should be tossed out because the individual mandate could not be separated from the other changes approved by Congress. This economic mandate represents a wholly novel and potentially unbounded assertion of congressional authority: the ability to compel Americans to purchase an expensive health insurance product they have elected not to buy, and to make them re-purchase that insurance product every month for their entire lives,Ž Chief Judge Joel Dubina and Judge Frank M. Hull wrote in the 207-page majority opinion. But Judge Stanley Marcus mocked that reasoning, siding with the Obama administrations argument that the mandate is allowed under the constitutions Commerce Clause, saying the law portends no such impending doom.Ž The appeals court ruling was just one more step on the road to a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on the law, but Republicans still hailed the decision. It is critical that this case be expedited to the United States Supreme Court so that we can put this job-killing federal government mandate behind us and begin making the meaningful improvements our healthcare system needs without infringing on the liberties of Americans, said Gov. Rick Scott, who has made opposition to the law one of his signature issues. But advocates for the law, like healthadvocacy group Florida CHAIN, focused on the next stages of the “ ght. Implementation of the (law) is critical to the health and well-being of Floridians,Ž Florida CHAIN said in a statement. COMING AND GOING IN THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE When the states attention wasnt riveted on the outcome of the court case, it was instead focused on the lawyers who argued the cases. It was getting harder and harder to keep up with the organizational chart in Attorney General Pam Bondis of“ ce, or at least to track who was leaving and why. Assistant Attorney General Andrew Spark quit Wednesday as Bondi was threatening to put him on administrative leave. Spark wrote a 16-page memo outlining what he saw as shortcomings in the of“ ces effort to go after fraud, and accused two fellow employees of trying to block his efforts to initiate investigations. But Bondi said the memo divulged information about ongoing investigations … and failed to include that [Sparks] was the subject of an ongoing investigation for using the services of a business he was investigating.Ž Or maybe it did. Spark wrote about a case in which he was investigating a health club chain of which he was a member. But conflict-of-interest accusations surrounding AG employees were all too common. Joe Jacquot, who left the attorney generals of“ ce earlier this year, defended his work at the of“ ce before he took a job with Jacksonville-based Lender Processing Services, which was under investigation during his time with the state. Jacquot said he was careful to wall himself off from any discussions about the “ rm once he knew he might take a job there. (Incidentally, Jacquot spent much of his time working on the healthcare lawsuit.) Jacquots departure in May and his landing at LPS was scrutinized in part because Bondi has been under the microscope for the “ ring of two attorneys who worked in the economic crimes unit on the fraud cases. Critics alleged that the attorney generals of“ ce has gone soft on the “ rms, and claimed also that theres a revolving door culture between the agency and the companies. And two other former McCollum attorneys have ties to “ rms that were under investigation … one who quit when Bondi took over and another who was “ red by Bondi. It wasnt long before politicians entered the fray, with Reps. Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee, and Ron Saunders, D-Key West, and Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, announcing they were working on legislation to prevent lawyers who leave the attorney generals of“ ce or certain other agencies from going to work for a company that had been under investigation while they were there. It is bad policy for the integrity of the investigation, and the perception,Ž Soto said Wednesday in an interview. DOJ: VOTING LAW LOOKS OKAY TO US. WELL, PART OF IT The federal Department of Justice also had its day in the news, when Secretary of State Kurt Browning announced that he had gotten the go-ahead from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to enforce the states controversial elections law in the “ ve Florida counties that require preclearance under the Voting Rights Act. Or at least that he had gotten the goahead to enforce the uncontroversial parts of the states controversial elections law in those counties. The rest of preclearance process … required for areas that have a history of racial discrimination in voting … was moved recently to the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., apparently paving the way for this weeks announcement. I am appreciative of the work the DOJ has done to approve Floridas new election laws,Ž Browning said in a statement released by his of“ ce. Their decision confirms what we already know, that Floridas new election laws are fair and not discriminatory.Ž Not so fast, opponents said. As the Secretary should know well, the State stopped the Department of Justice from reviewing the most discriminatory portions of the law and, moreover, the Department of Justice is only reviewing these changes for compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act … not their legality or fairness overall,Ž said Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida. To suggest otherwise is dishonest.Ž HEARINGS ON FPL RATE CASEIt might have taken the DOJ weeks to consider the states election changes, but it took the Public Service Commission almost no time at all to “ nish up a hearing on Florida Power & Lights proposal to collect $196 million next year to pay for nuclear-power projects. A ruling is scheduled for Oct. 24. The PSC had set aside all or parts of three weeks to hear about FPLs plans and a request by Progress Energy Florida to pass along about $141 million in nuclear costs to customers in 2012. But the hearing on FPLs request started Wednesday and ended Thursday, and Deputy Public Counsel Charles Rehwinkel said negotiations on the number of witnesses in the Progress case could allow it to be wrapped up in a day or two. At the hearing, attorneys for consumers and business and environmental groups questioned whether FPL will ever build two new nuclear reactors and whether the company increased costs by trying to do an upgrade project quickly and told the PSC that the utility used out-of-date information during a similar 2009 hearing about the upgrade project. COMINGS AND GOINGS Gov. Rick Scott made waves by hiring tea party activist Robin Stublen as a new deputy director of public liaisonŽ at $70,000 a year. € Barney Bishop said he would resign as president and CEO of Associated Industries of Florida at the end of the year, saying there are other things in life … other passionsŽ that he wants to pursue. € And Rod Petrey resigned as head of the Tallahassee-based LeRoy Collins Center, according to the Tallahassee Democrat, but said he was bound by a con“ dentiality agreement from discussing the circumstances surrounding his departure. STORY OF THE WEEK: A federal appeals court sides with Florida and 25 other states, ruling the health-care mandate approved by President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats is unconstitutional. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: There is a less of a chance that an individual will go through his entire life without ever consuming healthcare services than there is that he will win the Irish Sweepstakes at the very moment he is struck by lightning,Ž wrote federal Judge Stanley Marcus in a dissent to the health care ruling.WEEKLY ROUNDUP … (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Courts, personnel decisions dominate the week

Page 6B – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 18, 2011 www.thewakullanews.com Look for the next chapter of The Brass Bell in next weeks edition of The Wakulla news This page sponsored in part by:Written by Cathy Sewell and illustrated by Blaise Sewell of The Curriculum ClosetChapter One of Six Rotten Luck The score was tied and Felix and his friends were looking to claim the winning goal. “Open!” Hector gasped, making a breakaway. “Pass it to me!” Felix planted his foot in the grass and kicked the green and blue sphere toward his teammate. The ball went airborne and all the players stood still, holding their breaths. Felix could only watch as the ball seemed to grow wings and y through the air. It sailed right over Hector, over the goal and even over the tall fence that towered behind the soccer eld. “Great shot,” his teammates growled sarcastically. Everyone headed off the eld. They all knew the wall rule: Anything hit, kicked or thrown over the 6-foot wooden wall is lost forever. Felix found himself all alone, still kneeling in the same spot where he had launched the ball. “It’s not fair, abuelita,” Felix later told his grandmother. “Why do I always have such rotten luck?” “Now, nieto,” she began, sliding a plate of fresh corn tortillas across the table. “You know about the curse of our family.” Felix was always interested in Grandma’s stories. He was even willing to put up with helping her cook, because cooking time usually meant story time. “Yes,” Felix answered, adding beans and rice to the tortillas and rolling them into burritos. “But Grandma, why does the curse always have to fall on me? Nobody else in our family has bad luck.” “Felix, have I told you the story about where that cursed thing came from?” she asked, reaching out and touching the small brass bell Felix wore on a string. “Tell me again!” Felix begged. “Many years ago, my great-great-grandparents went through some rough times. They had no money or food, just a skinny goat. One evening, a mysterious old woman came to their home and tied that brass bell around the neck of their goat. She said the bell must stay on the goat, or bad things would come to the family. Afterward, the goat produced enough milk that they were able to feed themselves and sell the extra. “But late one night, my greedy uncle snuck into the barn and took the bell from the goat. He tied it around the neck of the goose, hoping to get more eggs,” Grandma continued. “When he went out to check on the goose the next morning, he found the goat had died. He told his parents what he had done and begged their forgiveness. Ever since, our family has had to pay for his mistake!” Felix had heard the goat story for years, but had a hard time believing that this little trinket had cursed their family for generations. “Felix! You’ve only rolled one burrito! No more stories for you,” Grandma teased. “Sorry,” Felix said. “I just haven’t had such a great day. I’m going to the attic until dinner.” The attic was Felix’s quiet place. In a house full of brothers, sisters and cousins, he had very little privacy. He spotted an old, dusty box of books in the corner and selected a leather-bound one called “Coronado and the Golden Cities.” Felix loved books about conquistadors. He immediately cracked open the cover to start reading. The next day at school, Felix was still thinking about what he had read. “One of these days, I’m going exploring!” he told his friend, Karol. Karol usually kept quiet in class, but Felix didn’t have anyone else to talk to because most of the soccer team was still mad at him. “Where would you go?” Karol asked. “I’ve been reading a story about an explorer named Coronado,” Felix said. “Did you know that Coronado explored the land right around here?” “Hey, that’s freaky!” Hector joined the conversation, uninvited as usual. “I wonder if our town, Corona, is named after him?” “Anyway,” Felix continued, “Coronado was looking for the seven lost cities of gold.” “I know of a mysterious golden city not too far away,” Hector said, trying to sound serious. “Not many know of its secret treasure, but this knowledge has been passed down for generations in my family. I suppose I could be persuaded to share this information, with two fellow explorers.” Hector glanced over to see if Karol and Felix were listening. They both just looked at each other. “All right, then, it’s settled!” Hector announced, after the pair continued to stand in silence. “We’ll meet here at 9 o’clock tomorrow morning!” Find us on

Continued from Page 1B Theyre easy to work with and theyre pretty,Ž Kinsey says. The tricky part of glass etching is placing the stencil on glass, Kinsey says. If the surface is flat, its simple. However, if there are curves or contours to the glass, it makes it a little more challenging. Kinsey uses jewelers glasses so he can see all the angles of the glass up close. Theres an art to it,Ž Kinsey says of placing the stencil. Its got to be perfect.Ž Sometimes this process can take hours, especially if the design is intricate. Once the stencil is placed on the glass, he begins to sandblast, which creates a cloud of smoke because of the aluminum oxide used to etch the glass. He uses a shop vac to soak up the dust. Its like looking through smoke,Ž Kinsey says. Kinseys etches designs on vases, platters, mirrors, doors, bottles and anything else he can get his hands on. And he works with a variety of designs including underwater themes, nautical scenes, swamp scenes, “ sh, seahorses, butter” ies, horses, manatees, deer, etc. Theyre nice, pretty to look at and useful,Ž Kinsey says of the art he makes. And its all one of a kind.Ž Once the etching is “ nished, he places the object in his blast cabinet and looks for shiny spots. If he “ nds one, it means he missed a spot. Kinsey also makes incense holders out of bottles. A friend broke her incense holder and suggested Kinsey make one out of one of his old glass bottles. He drilled a series of holes in the bottle and then took a cork and drilled a small hole in it to hold the incense. It actually burns better,Ž Kinsey says. Kinsey “ nds most of his glass at yard sales and says he is always on the lookout for colored glass. Anytime I can reuse something, I will,Ž Kinsey says. One of his most recent pieces of art was a large, used mirror that he etched a picture of Jesus Christ on and then found an old frame and cut it to “ t the mirror. He then delivered it to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church and gave it to the church as a gift. Its my way of thanking God for looking out for me.Ž Kinsey says. And for my God-given talents.Ž Kinsey gives away a lot of his artwork, because giving is just in his nature. He has donated art to several different organizations in the county, including the Senior Citizen Center and Florida Wild Mammal Association. One piece he decided to hold on to was a aqua vase that he etched seahorses and an underwater scene on. Kinsey says that project was very time-consuming because the vase had lots of curves and the design was very detailed. Kinsey says the vase was so pretty, he decided to keep it. I call it my Rembrandt,Ž Kinsey says. In July, Kinsey went to an antique bottle show and brought some of his sandblast art. A family was intrigued by the art, especially their 13-year-old daughter. She asked Kinsey how much he was selling a small cobalt vase with seahorses on it. That was a work of art,Ž Kinsey says of the vase. Kinsey told the little girl the price of the vase, which was too expensive for her. The girl seemed sad and he decided to sell it to her for $10. That was the only piece Kinsey sold that day. Its not always about pro“ t,Ž Kinsey says. I love doing stuff for kids.Ž He sells his work at various places including Handmade in Appalachicola, Wakulla Sod and Nursery and Tranquility by Candlelight in Crawfordville. Kinseys says he tries to keep his prices low, but his hobby is expensive. The owner of Tranquility by Candlelight, Vanessa Bass, says Kinsey is extremely talented and creative. He has made me beautiful things,Ž Bass says. The store, which Bass calls a cafe with a twist, has been open for four months and features a lounge area, free wi“ library, cafe with food, coffee and tea, kids game room, consignments and art from local artists. Bass says they want to support the local artists and have a place where customers can meet the person who created the piece they are buying. Currently the store features 12 different artists and Bass says Kinsey is the most successful. Everybody loves it,Ž Bass says. Those visiting the shop can ” ip through a catalog and order specific pieces from Kinsey. And they get it right away,Ž Bass says. Theres no wait time.Ž For more information about Tranquility by Candlelight or to view Kinseys work, visit www. tbccafe. yolasite.com. Kinseys says he wants to eventually start glass carving, which is more complex than surface blasting. Kinsey says glass artwork is his future and how he plans to support himself from now on. This is something I dearly love,Ž Kinsey says. This is where my heart is.Ž Mike Kinsey loves creating sandblast art To be able to create things … oh, I just love it, he says.JENNIFER JENSENA stencil is placed on glass and Kinsey begins to sandblast, which creates a cloud of smoke because of the aluminum oxide used in the etching process.
