Serving Wakulla County For More Than A Century Our 117th Year, 1st Issue Thursday, January 5, 2012 O n e S e c t i o n One Section 7 5 C e n t s 75 Cents P u b l i s h e d W e e k l y Published Weekly, R e a d D a i l y Read Daily INDEX Public Notices ..............................................Page 2 Comment & Opinion ....................................Page 3 Church..........................................................Page 4 School ..........................................................Page 5 Thinking Outside the Book ..........................Page 6 Outdoors .....................................................Page 7 Water Ways ..................................................Page 8 Sheriffs Report ............................................Page 9 Taking Care of Business .............................Page 10 Spotlight on Business .................................Page 11 Week in Wakulla ........................................Page 12 Classi eds ..................................................Page 13 Legal Notices .............................................Page 14 OBITUARIES John Floyd Brown Sr. Betty Antill Gatlin Thelma Langston Grimes Janie Ruth Robb The WakullanewsThree People You Should KnowThe president of Capital City Bank Wakulla, Amy Geiger says she first started doing community work when she “ rst went to work at the bank in 1991 … right out of schoolŽ … where it was encouraged. The employees were told to find something they were passionate about and do it, and she began by volunteering with March of Dimes. Later, she joined some organizations and got involved because of the business networking opportunities. Twenty years later, she has the perspective that community involvement is important because of the social support it provides. There is so much hurt out there and so much need,Ž she says. I was brought up that way, you help other people.Ž As a parent, as well, she says, its important to be a role model for your children, for them to see you helping in the community and involved … because its the right thing to do. Continued on Page 16 R.H. Carter was the business director for Wakulla County Schools from 1963 to 1993, when he retired. Later, he was approached by Anita Townsend about taking over the job as executive director of the senior center … but he told her he really wasnt looking for a job. Townsend convinced him, though, and he took the post in April 1997, and helped spearhead the growth of the center with a new facility, which opened in 2002, as well as senior apartments next door. The center manages a Before and After School program thats become a moneymaker. Its Carters skill as a “ nancial manager that has enabled the senior center to be a solvent enterprise, providing services to the community. Carter says he sees his job as providing the tools the staff needs to do their job. My primary responsibility is to make sure we have the money to do what we do,Ž he says, while giving staff the latitude to run their departments. But the rewards of the job for Carter are obviously the human connection, and the effect the center has on the people it touches. He tells the story of a local woman whose well had collapsed. She couldnt work because she was the caretaker for her son, who suffered from a severe mental illness and couldnt be left alone. County employees learned of her plight with lack of water and, on their own time, were taking water and groceries to the woman every day. Carter was contacted by a county staffer about whether the senior center could help, and he made calls, working his way up the ladder at Talquin. On a Thursday, he made contact with someone who could make a decision, and a water line was put in at the womans home on Friday. Carter called a plumber, who donated his work to connect the womans home, and she had water on Saturday. A government agency couldnt have done that,Ž Carter says. Continued on Page 16 Scott Joyner took over operation of the Wakulla County Public Library in 2007 when former Library Director Doug Jones became director of Public Services, which encompasses the library, as well as other departments. Joyner learned all he could from Jones before he retired last April. He was nothing but a great mentor,Ž Joyner says. After earning his degree in political science, Joyner says he saw the job opening for library services coordinator. He was hired by Jones and moved to Wakulla County in December 2007. This job incorporates his love of books and reading, but is also more than just books,Ž he says. He is able to use his degree during budget time when politics come into play and the state legislation decides how much libraries will receive through state aid. Each year, Joyner says he has to stress to legislators how important the library is to small, rural counties, such as Wakulla. In smaller communities, the library does serve if not as the main community center, a branch of it,Ž Joyner says. Continued on Page 16Special to The NewsSuperintendent David Miller announced the school-level 2012 Teachers of the Year on Dec. 7. Surprising the teachers with flowers, candy and balloons, Miller received enthusiastic responses from students as he entered each classroom to present the honor to their teacher. The eight Teachers of the Year for 2012 are Shari Smith representing Wakulla Education Center and Sopchoppy Education Center; Holly Harden for Crawfordville Elementary; Angela Swain for Medart Elementary; Megan Crombie for Riversink Elementary; Michelle Hunter for Shadeville Elementary; John Kane for Riversprings Middle; Jeri Jump for Wakulla Middle; and Missy Rudd for Wakulla High School. Nominations from each schools faculty began in November, and then nominees submitted professional and biographical information forms for their faculties to read. Faculties then voted for their schools Teacher of the Year. Selected teachers names were concealed until Miller visited each school. SHARI SMITH Shari Smith is a pre-kindergarten teacher representing Wakulla Education Center (WEC) and Sopchoppy Education Center. She has her bachelors degree in elementary education with endorsements in Reading and English Speakers of Other Languages. She currently is in her third year of teaching, all at WEC. She has participated in trainings for the new Teacher Evaluation System; Using Mimio Technology in the Classroom; and Beyond Centers and Circle Time, among others. She is the pre-k representative on the District Teacher Appraisal Advisory Team and on the District Professional Development Council. I believe an effective teacher is one who differentiates instruction to meet the needs of his/her students,Ž she says. An effective teacher is one who re” ects daily on his/ her performance and the performance of his/her students and seeks out resources and professional development activities to better their skill set.Ž HOLLY HARDEN Holly Harden of Crawfordville Elementary School has her bachelors degree and is certified to teach grades one through six, plus has endorsements in ESOL, Reading and Gifted Studies. She is also a National Board Certi“ ed teacher. Harden currently teaches fourth grade and is in her 15th year of teaching. I want to create a classroom environment that is challenging so that every student meets his or her highest potential,Ž she says. My goal is to demonstrate the life skills and values students need to become productive citizens.Ž Harden demonstrates her leadership skills in many ways, including as School Improvement cochair, Grade Level Team Leader, teacher representative on the District Professional Development Council and as member and former secretary of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International for women educators. She is also one of the teachers who works with students to publish the school newspaper, assists with EcoAmbassadors and is an active parent of two Crawfordville Elementary students. ANGELA SWAIN Angela Swain of Medart Elementary has a bachelors degree in elementary education and also is certi“ ed in elementary and secondary Exceptional Student Education. She has been teaching for nine years and currently teaches second grade. Children have a natural urge to learn, which offers unlimited possibilities,Ž she says. In order to reach the full potential of those possibilities, children need to be guided through an active exploration of the world, instilled with a strong selfesteem, and nurtured to a love of life.Ž Swain is a supervising teacher for college practicum students and interns. Continued on Page 2Eight chosen school-level Teachers of the Year The idea was pretty simple: Who are the people you should know in Wakulla County? Who are the people who are busy doing things to improve the community and, if you just came here, are the rst people you should meet? Dozens of names were scribbled on pages of paper and hung up in the news office. Names were added, scratched through, debated, more names added, marked out. The only restriction was that it should not be a person in political of ce. These are three people The News staff unanimously choose as People You Should Know. We hope to do some more of these pro les in the future as an ongoing feature. Do you know of someone who's making a difference in the community?

Commissioner Richard Harden said helping Manna will bene“ t the entire community. Commissioner Aginita Rosier said she has already heard from numerous residents who have been helped. In other news: € Deputy Clerk Linda Langston gave the commission an update on allowing water customers to pay their bills with a credit card. The commission wanted to give customers another, way to pay their bills and asked staff to look into it. Langston said there is a startup cost of $350 and then a minimum charge of $10 a month. To recover the citys costs, they would charge a $3 convenience fee to those who pay with a credit card, Langston said. It seemed to cover us and not charge our customers an outrageous amount,Ž Langston said. She added that several other things have to be worked out before the process can be implemented. € The commission held a public hearing and approved an ordinance to increase the rates for the citys turn-off fees and deposit fees for water. The deposit fee was raised to $150 from $80 for renters who put the water bill in their name and $100 for owners if the water bill is in their name. The initial turn-on fee and reconnect fee is now $50 instead of $20. € The commission also voted unanimously to hire consultant Andy Easton as the administer of the $600,000 community redevelopment block grant the city applied for to improve drainage. Easton prepared the application for the city, but a request for proposals had to be issued to “ nd a person to administer the grant. There were several inquiries, but only Easton submitted an RFP and was awarded the bid.

Richard is currently a city council member for the city of Sopchoppy. Very recently, Sopchoppy got a new administration building, a new sewer system that takes their residents off of septic tanks and they got newly paved streets. Hmmmmmm. I say we elect Richard Harden, Jackie Lawhon and Bob Greener for Wakulla County Commission, vacate the other seats, then move the county seat to Sopchoppy. They made it look so simple. Neal Walker Wakulla Gardens Editor, The News: Happy New Year! We would like to see about putting our sons picture in The Wakulla News. We are hoping to surprise David when it is in the newspaper, and send a copy to David. And if possible to post on your website. The picture is of David J. Sellers, 31, of Crawfordville, who graduated from Wakulla High School in 1999. David had a lot of friends, was a great student, played soccer and was on the weightlifting team. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy his senior year. He was promoted in September 2011 to the rank of Chief Petty Of“ cer on the U.S.S. New York. He is married with three boys. The New York is scheduled for its eight-month underway soon, not sure when. Our David loves his roots and it would mean a lot to have his hometown paper with him while out. Thank you so very much. Adrian and Diana Sellers Crawfordville Editor, The News: I was reading an article in the Tallahassee Democrat today (Tuesday, Jan. 3) and noticed in the Big Bend and Florida BriefsŽ Section an article datelined Ruskin and titled, Police seek tips about gun“ re that wounded boy.Ž Now I am not an antigun person by any means, however, I do believe in good common sense gun safety. The article went on to say that, A 12-year-old boy who police say was wounded by celebratory New Years gun“ re remains hospitalized in Tampa in critical condition.Ž The article continues, that a bullet falling from the sky early Sunday pierced the young boys skull and lodged behind his right cheekbone. The doctors are waiting for the swelling in the boys brain to subside before attempting to remove the bullet. The boy and his family were watching fireworks outside their rural Ruskin home when the boy fell to the ground with the head wound. Please practice good common sense gun safety; this could have been your child. K. Gooding Wakulla Gardens By MARJ LAW Ive always thought of gun-related activities as a man thing,Ž and it seems a lot of women feel the same way. So we can be intimidated when we go to a “ ring range. Last weekend, one woman told me that shed rather not shoot if she couldnt shoot well. She had just visited the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of“ ce metal target range with her husband and couldnt get one of those round targets to fall backwards. So she moved over to the pistol range, hoping to do better. She was shooting a 9millimeter pistol made of composite material. She bought it because it was small, light, and, well, cute. Some vendors will sell small, light, and cute to a woman. Thats mean. If youre starting out and want to look good, go for longer-barreled, and heavy. I like a .22-caliber pistol. Why? Well, in my opinion, women tend to have smaller frames than men, and so they need an easier gun to shoot. They want little recoil. (A lot of big men like the big bang of a .40caliber gun.) A longer-barreled gun, like a .22 made of stainless steel and not made of composite material, absorbs more of the kickŽ you get when you shoot. A big kick can hurt your wrist and make your arms ” y up in the air. That doesnt look good, and generally means that you missed the target. So get that heavier, fouror “ ve-inch barreled gun and youll “ nd a whole lot less recoil and youll have a better chance to hit the target. The longer-barrel gun usually makes less noise, too. Generally, newbiesŽ prefer less of a bang. If the guns barrel is longer, the bullet has longer to travel in it. That means its going straight the whole time its in the barrel. Shooting straight means better aim. And the longer space between the front and back sights helps what they call your sight picture.Ž Which means youve got a better chance to hit that target. And hitting the target makes you feel like a pro. Remember, hitting that target is fun. I really like to cheat, ahem, to hit better, by using a sandbag or an aim rest. Place the barrel on the rest, schootch lower, and aim again. The bag holds the gun straight. Often, if you hold a pistol long enough, your arms will wobble, which results in poor aim. You can see that the bag will help your aim. A scopeŽ can help you see that target. It mounts on your gun and acts as a magnifying glass. All of a sudden, the target is up close and personal! Its easier to aim and shoot! Yep. Hitting that target is good. And satisfying. And speaking of targets, I like to see what I hit. For those of us who are visually challenged, Birchwood Casey Shoot N See or Dirty Bird targets are really nice. They are black, but when you hit them, right where you hit, the area around the bullet hole turns a neon yellow, lime or orange. Its a lot easier to see where that bullet went than if youre shooting at a paper target. Easy to see is fun, but those targets get expensive. So, if your funds are short, stick with the cheap paper targets or get yourself a bunch of cheap paper plates and staple several onto the big target holders. Then another thing you might “ nd useful is a pair of inexpensive small binoculars. Dont get those big, good nocks. They are heavy and take up too much room in your bag. Go for small and cheap. Hang them around your neck, and after you shoot a round or two, look to see what youve done. When you do that, youll start to see whether you are shooting high, low, left, right, or just right and you can adjust your aim accordingly. That newbieŽ who said she didnt like to shoot if she couldnt shoot well turned out to be very good at “ nding the target. She grabbed a Dirty Bird and a sandbag. She scootched back so her eyes lined up the front and back sights on her .22 and she pulled the trigger. A yellow hole pierced the black target. This is fun!Ž she said happily, and aimed again. Ha! Shooting is not a man thing anymore.Marj Law is the retired director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful and an occasional columnist for The Wakulla News.Home on the Range: Pretending to be a Pro READERS WRITE:Replace county with Sopchoppys board Remember gun safety when shooting Please put our sons picture in the paper CPO David SellersHa! Shooting is not a man thing anymore.By RITA HANEY, LCSW Helping children deal with life is a challenging experience. As a therapist I see children who have fears both real and imagined; and also, children who tell lies. Monsters hiding under the bed; teasing on the playground and fears both real and imagined of separation and loss are part of a childs life. Navigating a child through the labyrinth of growing and learning … not only school work, but social skills and life skills is no easy task. Young children who lie are not necessarily bad kids. Instead, they are attempting to save themselves from disappointing a parent, teacher or are exaggerating their life in order to impress others … often without success. A teacher recently stated she helps her kids when they exaggerated to use the phrase Wouldnt it be cool if...Ž before they tell their story. This approach lets the child know she does not believe the story and yet does not inhibit any creative talent. This phrase can be a wonderful “ rst sentence in a written story as well as a spoken story. Encouraging a child to write … to tell their story … is easy because children love an audience. Writing stories to share with mom, dad and grandparents can be a rewarding experience for everyone. According to Pam Allyn, Executive Director and founder of LitWorld and author, writing is important because writing helps a child foster emotional growth, helps to develop critical thinking skills and helps to improved academic skills. All good things. From a therapeutic perspective writing can take inside fears and put them on the outside where they can be seen and conquered. Drawing the scary monster and writing a story about bad dreams helps a child face his fears allowing for better sleep and reduced stress. The budding writer is provided an opportunity to capture the attention of both adults and peers. Developing skills and conquering fear helps to develop self-con“ dence which is a boost for self-esteem. The lack of con“ dence and self-worth can often be found at the bottom of the lie or the bases for poor social skills. A child may tell tall tales in order to gain attention and the attention received from these tales may not have the desired result. Increased confidence and self-worth allows for development of good friendships. Life is a journey and writing a journal can be especially fun and enlightening for your childs journey through life. For example the journey of grade school to middles school, or joining the band, the scouts or drama club. Even young children will enjoy writing in their journal the new found ability to ride a bike or roller skate. The journal marks the writers development and growth. A journal can be private or a journal writer may choose to share their written words with others. A journal is a way for children (and adults) to see how we have grown and how much we have learned. For support and ideas in encouraging your childs writing life see Your Childs Writing LifeŽ by Pam Allyn (available in the Wakulla County Library). Please note, reading is the foundation for writing and our library has a much to offer the entire family. Allyn has a chapter listing 20 great books which she calls writing mentors. Much information exists on-line which offer encouragement and ideas to encourage you and your child. Rita Haney is a licensed social worker in Crawfordville.

This has always been true, but at my present age (which Ill never divulge) it is even more dif“ cult. I can chalk a lot of this up to slight … very slight … memory problems. Sure, it has only been two weeks since I last worked, but I cant remember where I stowed my briefcase with all my proctoring materials. Nurse Judy, my lazy alter ego, refuses to help me look for it. Work is something she avoids like the plague. Lets try on these new outfits we got for Christmas,Ž she pleads as I try to prod her out from under the no longer beautiful Christmas tree. No,Ž I tell her “ rmly, not just because I am on a mission to get myself organized, but also because those new out“ ts are too small for my burgeoning girth. Reluctantly she climbs out from beneath the tree, tinsel hanging from her hair reminding me of Medusa. I hate those scrubs you wear to work,Ž she says. They are so boring.Ž She holds up a ruf” ed pair of chartreuse pajamas. Why dont you wear these instead?Ž she asks. No one would know but what they are fancy scrubs.Ž I try to stifle a giggle as I contemplate reporting to work in such a bizarre out“ t. She holds out a huge snow” ake ring (larger than a silver dollar) that she has been wearing throughout the holiday season. At least you could wear this to dress yourself up a little. Otherwise, people are going to begin calling you Drab Judy.Ž You are being ridiculous,Ž I tell her. I could really injure someone with that thing on my “ nger. If I didnt hurt someone else, I could severely hurt myself. It could get caught in the bedsprings when I try to make the bed between clinical skills. You have no idea what a nurse has to do as a clinical evaluator.Ž She smirks at me. Then, why am I the one that everyone calls Nurse Judy? Why are you the one that everyone calls Plain Judy or now Drab Judy?Ž I have no answer for that. I need to find my work badge,Ž I say instead. Have you seen it?Ž Forget it,Ž she says. You look like something from Planet of the Apes in that photo,Ž she says. I am going to paste one of my sexy photos over it.Ž No, no,  I tell her. You cant do that. That is an of“ cial document.Ž Secretly, there is nothing Id like more than to have a decent looking picture to wear around my neck, but one must not tamper with of“ cial IDs. I rush into the closet to find my scrubs, tripping over my briefcase, which is buried under a pile of used Christmas wrappings. My badge ” ies up into the air. Nurse Judy catches it with one hand and takes off to change the picture. As I lay on the ” oor, my face buried in tissue paper, I cant believe that I really will be ready for work tomorrow. More later, Judy (aka Drab Judy) www.nursejudyinfo.com Judy ConlinNurse Judy’s Nook

PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSpecial to The NewsOn Dec. 12, Crawfordville Elementary Schools faculty, staff and volunteers piled into a few trucks, loaded 10 boxes of new books, and candy canes to hand out, put on Santa hats and went into local neighborhoods to pass out the books and candy canes. It was cold and breezy, but was worth it after seeing the looks on childrens faces as they dug through hundreds of books. Elementary students were the targeted group of students, but preschool aged children up to high school students were the recipients of the books being offered. Families came out to see what the commotion was and moms and dads were also able to pick out books. The idea was to get as many books out into Wakulla County homes to increase reading and get families to look at reading as a family fun activity, which improves student achievement at all levels. The group who participated all agreed that the Trade and Travel Truck is a great way to reach out to the community in a fun and educational manner. It is like giving back to the community what the community has given to Crawfordville Elementary. We all feel blessed to live in this county, have the type of schools that we have, have the support that we have and teach the students we have the privilege of teaching.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 5, 2012 – Page 7outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsHappy New Year to everyone and I hope you had a safe and happy holiday season. Now that the holidays are over Im ready for spring, though I have been ready ever since it started getting cool. The “ rst of this week is going to bring us the coldest weather of the year and is going to really change things. Earlier with the cold nights we were having it had pushed the “ sh into the rivers and creeks and then the warming water temperatures moved most of them out. This should put a lot of “ sh in the Aucilla River, up into the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers, Spring Creek and move a lot of “ sh up around the state park on the Ochlockonee River. Spring Creek was full of “ sh two weeks ago and now you can hardly get a bite in there. Capt. David Fife “ shed half a day on Friday and said he caught one trout and had one other. He “ shed the creek and oyster bars around Oyster Bay. David knows that area like the back of his hand and if he doesnt catch any “ sh they just arent biting. I “ shed there on Thursday and Friday and caught one trout in Spring Creek around Stewart Cove and didnt get another bite. We went out and caught some black sea bass in about 20 feet of water and ended up catching about 22 small reds around an oyster bar in the Oyster Bay area. That bar was the only spot I could get a bite on. I talked to one fellow who said he had done well on trout “ shing a grub tipped with a piece of shrimp. Alan Lamarche took 11year-old Russ Goldsberry and 9-year-old Clayton Goldsberry out before New Years and put them on a pile of black sea bass. They caught and released about 75 and kept 10 big ones for supper. Alan said their mom and dad took the “ sh off and baited the lines and all he had to do was drive the boat. Jeff and Kay May from Carrolton, Ga., came down over New Years to give it one more try offshore before the new year. The hope was for some big rock bass and he said they caught all of them that they wanted and also caught and released eight big gag grouper. The largest was about 30 inches and all would have been keepers. Kent Taylor at AMS was saying one of his buddies went out of Lanark Village last week on a calm day and ran out to about 40 feet of water. Using the Gulp and cut bait they loaded a box with big black sea bass and grunts. Bob McCullough of Tallahassee “ shed the mouth of the Ochlockonee River on Thursday and up around the state park on Friday with his good friend Ed. On Thursday, Bob said he caught quite a few 15inch white trout “ shing with Gulps in about 20 feet of water. He also caught several whiting. On Friday, he and Ed “ shed up around Bear Creek and caught a few speckled trout, but no keepers. He said he talked to a lot of people that said you should have been here last week. The only person he talked to that had any “ sh at all was a man and wife that were trolling a very small red RattleTrap out in the main river. Dr. Norm Griggs said he “ shed down at the Aucilla last week and caught some big trout using the Gulp and live shrimp. He went back two days later and took his son and they caught six or seven big trout right off the bat when they got there and then nothing. Remember that February will be open for speckled trout and the new bag limit on reds will be two per person with an eight “ sh limit per boat. That means if you have “ ve “ shermen on the boat you can only keep eight, it doesnt mean if you have three people “ shing you can keep eight. The size limit stays the same. Remember to know your limits and leave a ” oat plan with someone whether going offshore or just “ shing the creeks and rivers. Good luck and good “ shing!The cold weather is going to put sh up the rivers From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL Molly Jones (8 years old) killed her “ rst deer in Smith Creek on Dec. 26. From a stand with her Dad, she made a perfect, unassisted 50-yard shot with her 7mm-08.From FWC NewsThe recreational and commercial harvest of tiger sharks and smooth, scalloped and great hammerhead sharks is prohibited in Florida state waters as of Jan. 1. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved the management change at its Nov. 16 commission meeting in an effort to further protect these top predators. The new measures also prohibit the possession, sale and exchange of tiger sharks and great, scalloped and smooth hammerhead sharks harvested from state waters. These sharks can still be caught and released in state waters and can be taken in adjacent federal waters. Prohibited species that die while on the line after being caught in state waters should be returned to the water immediately. The FWC is also working on an educational campaign highlighting “ shing and handling techniques that increase the survival rate of sharks that are caught and released while ensuring the safety of the anglers targeting them. These techniques include: € Use tackle heavy enough to land a “ sh quickly, reducing exhaustion. € Release the “ sh while it is in the water when possible. € Use a de-hooking device to remove hooks safely. € Use non-stainless steel hooks that can dissolve if they remain in a “ sh. € Use non-offset circle hooks to avoid gut-hooking a “ sh. Florida waters are considered essential habitat for these and other species of shark, especially juveniles and pregnant females. Shark “ shing has been strictly regulated in Florida since 1992, with a one-shark-per-person, twosharks-per-vessel daily bag limit for all recreational and commercial harvesters and a ban on shark “ nning.

The family went out “ shing with Alan Lamarche from Shell Point.SPECIAL TO THE NEWS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSWild hogs … nuisance or hunting opportunity?By TONY YOUNGFWC NewsThe white-tailed deer is the most popular game animal pursued each winter by Floridas more than 200,000 hunters. But theres another biggame species thats hunted quite a bit too and is especially popular with hunters in the southern and central parts of the state: the wild hog. Wild hogs, also called wild boars or feral pigs, arent native to Florida. They either were introduced by colonists or may even have been brought over by the Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539. Hogs provided a major food source for the early settlers, and those pigs that escaped or were released adapted and prospered readily in Floridas mild climate and varied habitats. Though non-native, you can hardly tell, because wild hogs are plentiful throughout Florida and can be found in all 67 counties. They live in various habitats but prefer moist forests, swamps and pine ” atwoods. Abundant populations of wild hogs occur west of Lake Okeechobee, between the Kissimmee and lower St. Johns river basins, and farther north along the Gulf coastal marshes between the Aucilla and Withlacoochee rivers. Wild hogs are omnivorous and feed by rooting up the ground with their broad snouts, leaving some areas looking like plowed “ elds. Because of this, they are considered by many agricultural producers to be nuisance animals. Their diet consists of grasses and ” owering plants in the spring, fruits in the summer and fall, and they eat roots, tubers and invertebrates throughout the year. Wild hogs have an annual home range of more than 10 square miles and are proli“ c reproducers. A healthy female (sow) can breed when only 6 months old and continue to breed every six months, producing four to 14 piglets per litter. Theyre not listed as game animals by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission but are considered wildlife. And even though wild hogs can have negative impacts on native vegetation and wildlife, theyre an important food source for several native species, including the alligator, bobcat and black bear, as well as the endangered Florida panther and threatened American crocodile. Wild hogs also make for a great hunting opportunity. On private property with the landowners permission, you may hunt or trap wild hogs year-round. Also, there are no size or bag limits. You may harvest either sex, and you dont even need a hunting license to do so. That goes for nonresidents as well. Now I do need to make you aware that when hunting one of the states many wildlife management areas (WMAs), you will need a valid Florida hunting license and a management area permit. On most WMAs, wild hogs may be hunted during all hunting seasons except spring turkey. But if its during archery season, you must use a bow; during muzzleloading gun season, youll have to use a muzzleloader. Also, on some WMAs, daily bag limits do apply, and in some cases, theres a minimum size limit on what you can shoot. During this time of year, many of the WMAs smallgame seasons are going on. The great thing about that is you never need a quota permit to hunt during a WMAs small-game season, and on most of them, hogs are legal game. The only thing is, you cant use a center“ re ri” e during that season, but you can use a shotgun with buckshot or a slug, or a rim“ re ri” e like a .22 magnum, or even a pistol if you want.

Page 8 – THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 5, 2012 www.thewakullanews.coma peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg StantonAs I thought about what to write this week, I was sur“ ng a bit online and saw some great pictures taken by our Flotilla commanders wife Phyllis Asztalos of the Shell Point Yacht Club Regatta on Jan. 1. With her permission, I am sharing one with you. Also, as is tradition, Duane and I host a Polar Bear Pool Party on Jan. 1 of each year. This year marked our fourth annual dip. We were a bit lucky this year as the pool had only dipped down to 62 degrees with the warm weather we have had over the last few weeks. Last year it was 54 degrees in the water and cold and raining outside! Each year we get a few more brave souls to join us in a brief moment of insanity. While this is far from the Polar Bear dips taken up north, it is still a fun tradition for our family. How all of this led me to decide on a topic to write about was the number of jokes coming from our spectators, also known lovingly as our peanut gallery, about calling 911 or having EMS standing by ready to revive us. Our jumpers this year ranged in age from grown adults to a very brave 10-year-old and our 4-year-old. Our youngest, who is 2, sat diligently on the steps with her feet submerged for the entire event! While we all laughed it off and in full jest assured everyone we were strong and able to brave the cold water, hypothermia is a real risk, even in sunny Florida and Georgia. The Coast Guard makes a distinction on the difference between immersion and submersion. Immersion occurs when your head is out of the water, and submersion is when your head goes below the water. While six of our nine Polar Bearers were submerged, three were only immersed. Physiologically, it only takes less than two minutes for a persons body to go into shock after entering cold water. Within 15 minutes there can be functional disabilities and full hypothermia can set in within 15 to 30 minutes. This occurs when more heat is lost from your body than is made, thus lowering your core body temperature. When this happens, your body works to keep all the vital organs warm and functioning. A normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees, hypothermia onset is when the core temperature declines to 95 degrees. How long this takes has several factors. The water only needs to be colder than your body temperature. While it may feel very good on a hot summer day, cold water in cold weather is a double negative, however being wet in the cold air is much safer than being in the cold water. Heat loss occurs 20 to 30 percent faster in water than in air. What does that mean to you all? If you happen to fall overboard, get out if at all possible and try to get out of the wet clothing and into something dry as soon as possible. If you dont have anything dry, try to keep your head covered and wrap yourself up in anything you may have to conserve heat and get to shore as soon as possible. If you cannot get out of the water and are alone, try to hug your knees to your chest to conserve your heat. If there is more than one person in the water, huddle for heat. The U.S. Coast Guard Boat Crew Seamanship manual breaks down survival time in the water by temperature. If the water temp is 50 to 60, most adults have about one or two hours before they become exhausted or lose consciousness. At 60 or 70 degrees, most adults have about two to seven hours before exhaustion or unconsciousness. At 70 to 80 degrees, two to 12 hours; and over 80 degrees, the time period is inde“ nite.Ž However, a Type I life jacket will help keep an individual face up and with their head supported increasing survivability if it works correctly. This is also for an adult; kids are a very different story. They have much smaller bodies and much less body fat to insulate them. Be very cautious when taking kids out in the colder weather. There are several great resources available on the internet and Flotilla 12 offers classes on boating safety that covers the risks, signs, symptoms and triage for hypothermia. We have a class coming up in a few weeks that I will provide details on next week. As we prepare for another great year, Flotilla 12 will be meeting Saturday, Jan. 7, at the Shell Point beginning with Staff of“ cers at 0900 and business meeting at 1015. Hope to see everyone there.

Exotic dive destinations exist around the world, from a tropical get-away with warm clear water teaming with marine life to shipwrecks in cold, but exciting historic sites. Regardless of your diving get-away pleasure, travel usually involves airlines. I travel on airlines and assist visitors to our center who come from around the world on airlines. I “ nd there are challenges that can be very distracting from that anticipated diving vacation. To assure success, take out travel insurance, such that when ” ights are canceled or disaster strikes, you can at least recover your expenses. Be sure your home owners insurance will cover lost luggage and personal diving equipment that may go missing when you get there. And absolutely carry Dive Insurance to cover the remote chance you are injured and require medical transport and hyperbaric treatment while you are away. Luggage restrictions have become a problem to divers who require quite a load of equipment to have fun underwater. Dive companies have developed ultra-light regulators, buoyancy compensators, “ ns and even wet suits that “ t in your carry-on luggage. Tanks and weights can be rented at the local dive store. Many of my clients bring their rebreathers, a practice for which we advise some caution. Our last client from Finland arrived recently but his check-in luggage did not. Several days later, his bag arrived empty of a $10,000 rebreather. Fortunately, his travel insurance may have covered him. My problem traveling with rebreathers was that the TSA inspectors were not familiar with the technology. Since I refused to check my rig for fear of theft, I faced the inspectors while loading the ” ight. I planned an extra hour when going through the line. They would invariably pull me out of the line, take me and my bag to the back room and there I would provide a lecture on the rebreather. Most were just fascinated with the technology, but some told me it looked too much like a bomb, too many wires and blinking lights to safely take on an airline. Those who had little time to learn, pressed their concerns by restricting my travel, taking components off the ” ight, or just diverting my rig such that it would arrive very late and often dismantled, missing parts or broken. I soon learned airline travel for the rebreather diver is not advised. I began driving to diving destinations whenever possible. During the summer months, many of our Wakulla County divers drive to the Florida Keys, our tropical diving destination, where warm clear water beckons good spear “ shing and underwater photography. During the winter, many of those in South Florida reciprocate by heading northward to our clear, calm and constant temperature springs and caves. Diving destinations permit folks to travel and enjoy different cultures while pursuing their passion for exploring the underwater world. And we have much to offer right here in Wakulla County.

The Chamber would like to thank The Wakulla News for the opportunity to showcase the business community each month in The News, keeping the community informed about Chamber and business events in our county over this last year and look forward to many more. The year ended on a disappointing note with regard to our government advocacy, as a very reasonable and responsible special events and alcohol use permitting ordinance for county-owned property was voted down because of the in” uence of a small but vocal portion of our community. The eventually something will happenŽ argument seemed to carry the day. To put this issue in perspective, there exists a municipal ordinance in St. Marks that allows serving alcohol on public property, which is why it is legal in some places in Wakulla. Also, one can go to Wakulla Springs State Park and have a drink with dinner on public property in Wakulla County. A similar ordinance in Franklin and Leon counties exists for the same purpose of augmenting the many festivals we have in this area. Think of Spring Time Tallahassee, the Apalachicola Seafood Festival, or the Downtown Get-down just to name a few. Although purported to be a valuesŽ issue, this ordinance was about creating a way for possible festival participants to know what their children may be exposed to rather that the present practice of skirting existing ordinance and selling on adjoining property. Our commissioners preferred to sweep an issue under the rug rather than deal with a socially accepted and legal practice in an open, reasonable and modern manner. Getting beyond that issue, what is far more concerning is the fact that although we have 33,000 people in this county, there is a small number who exert undue in” uence on our commissioners because they frequent the boards meetings. At any given meeting, 15 or 20 people can and do set policy … good or bad … for the rest of the county. It is common practice to stack the commission roomŽ to influence an issue. This is government dictated by emotion not by sound policy. We know this fact well at the Chamber and because of it are always attending the meetings. We cannot encourage you enough to attend these meetings and give our commissioners a broader perspective on all of the issues that they deal with. They need our help to set our policies. We would like to congratulate Superintendent of Schools David Miller, the entire school board staff, all the teachers, bus drivers and especially, all the parents who took the extra time needed to work with their children, to produce one of the most successful school systems in this state! Great job again! PAST YEARS CHAMBER PROJECTS The year went by so fast it is hard to remember what we did do in our continued effort to improve the climate for our local business community, so lets review the Chambers work this last year: One of the “ rst issues we got involved in was the new Code Enforcement Ordinance.

Owner Mike Keller closed the business to the public to accommodate our crowd of 44, and staff had the tables set with bread and salad, followed by pan-seared panko breaded tilapia with lemon and capers, “ nishing up with one of my favorites, a delicious bread pudding soaked in rum pecan sauce. It is always nice to see new faces at these gatherings, and out of eight new members recruited during November, three were in attendance, and had an opportunity to introduce their business. € Our host Mike Keller gave out new take-out menus, and made guests aware of their new phone number, 926-2242. € Chuck Daugherty, TCB Marketing from Tallahassee, purchase of mailing lists, coordinating of design and printing, direct imprinting and sorting for mass mailings. € Charlene Lanier … Harvest Thrift Store located in the North Pointe Shopping Center. Besides very low cost knickknacks, clothing etc., Harvest Thrift Store also offers an inexpensive food program through Gaballi. Mary once again brought a guest, and introduced Amy Banning with Olympus Insurance Company, and Zoe Mans“ eld, city manager of St. Marks, introduced her guest and of“ ce manager Ethel Jefferson. Tammie Barfield, with her great sense of humor, pointed out that upcoming events shared at these luncheons could also be found in The Wakulla News. Always an exciting part of the hour are the door prizes and cash drawing. This day, the $44 prize was won by first time attendee Marcia Miley with Auto Trim Design & Sign Company. We thank the following members for donating gifts, certi“ cates and other items to our raf” e: Arte Mexico, TCB Marketing, The Works Coworking Caf, Cook Insurance, Harvest Thrift Store, Lionel and Marianne Dazevedo with Coldwell Banker, Mikes Seafood Grille, The Wakulla News, Susan Schatzman, Auto Trim Design & Sign Company and HEALTHSOUTH Rehabilitation Hospital. Since this was our last networking luncheon for the year, Mary, who wanted us to be hurricane ready and had been giving a heavy duty ” ash light each month, let us know that hurricane season was of“ cially over. To celebrate a hurricane free 2011, and as a Christmas gift, Mary and her guest Amy made each one of us feel special, as they presented a bottle of dessert wine with a special Hurricane Who?Ž label to everyone leaving. Thank you, Mary, for this personal touch! Thank you, Mike Keller, for a great lunch, and many thanks to your attentive staff. Our next luncheon will be held in January, so watch for the email invitation and if you are not a Chamber member, membership has many advantages. Contact Petra Shuff at (850) 926-1848 for information. PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSChamber members networking and socializing at lunch at Mikes Seafood Grille in November.

INTERNATIONAL GOLD GYMNASTICS www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, January 5, 2012 – Page 11Continued from Page 10Ralph Thomas and his committee got actively involved in the editing of that ordinance, producing approximately a dozen changes that deleted unintended, onerous portions and made the entire document easier to enforce. About that same time, Paul Johnson was working in Tallahassee to get Wakulla County designated a RACEC county. We were originally left off the list but through Pauls work, and some help from the County, we were kept at the table for the still evolving BP situation and qualifying Wakulla County for favorable matching grant conditions. About this same time, we were all disappointed to “ nd out that 319 was not included in the DOT 20-year plan for four-laning, again. The Chamber began an initiative that will progress into next year to locally fund portions of that work to raise our priority ranking and hopefully, with citizen help and involvement, get the job done sooner. There is no single issue that could help the business community and citizens of Wakulla more than to support and work to implement this Our TownŽ initiative. JoAnn Palmer organized and MCd a very successful Business Excellence Awards Banquet. The Chamber applied for and received an award for a Preservation Project of Regional Impact, for their renovations to the old courthouse that were completed in 2007. This award was the culmination of 12 years of hard work and fundraising by the Chamber for this iconic treasure. When we signed our lease with the county in 1995 this building looked ready for the dust bin of history, but the Chamber resolved to hold fund raisers, write grants, and eventually rose over $800,000 that produced what you see today. This project emphasizes our positive commitment to our community, and our feeling that to promote the business community we must enrich our entire community. Mary Wallace instituted our monthly luncheons, a truly great idea that will become part of our fabric. Wakulla County fundamentally changed their method of collecting revenue when property tax revenues took a nosedive. Though it is always hard to support a tax of any kind; revenues are required to keep our streets and facilities in good shape, clean, and safe. The Chamber supported the new use taxes for garbage, “ re MSBU, and utility taxes that were implemented by our commissioners for several reasons. One, they were necessary to keep the county operating, two, they broadened the tax base so that we no longer depended on a very small percentage of our population to pay nearly all of our taxes, three, the County did cut their operating budget, and four, the taxes were mostly targeted to speci“ c uses which helps stop using general revenueŽ as a slush fund giving better budget transparency to our citizens. We supported the TDC bed tax also, increasing it to 4 percent to allow for better advertising for our budding tourist industry. I was looking at a resort website just the other day that collected a 12 percent tax to put our 4 percent in perspective. The Chamber worked to stop a rezoning request for single family detached residences in a commercial district in the center of Crawfordville. We helped make our citizens aware of the pitfalls of that decision and our Commissioners made the correct decision. We began our inaugural Low Country Boil in 2011, and had over 275 people in attendance. The event was a great success allowing the Chamber to distribute our “ rst two $1000 dollar scholarships to Wakulla High School seniors, and raise additional funds for the old courthouse. We are working to make this event an annual tradition that continues for many years. Lastly, we have written another grant, this time for window treatments in the old courthouse. We will “ nd out this spring if we were successful in our ongoing commitment to maintaining this historic treasure, and support our community. As this is my last letter as Chamber president, I want to thank the Chamber Board and our membership for the commitment to making Wakulla County a better place to live, work, and play! Happy New Year! Please join us, on Jan. 19th, in getting our new president, Amy Geiger, our of“ cers, and board off to a great start at our installation banquet. John Shuff served as president of the Wakulla Cunty Chamber of Commerce during 2011.

By JENNIFER JENSENjjensen@thewakullanews.netA large portion of the December meeting of the Wakulla County Energy Conservation Committee centered around audits that have already been performed on county buildings and steps taken by County Administrator David Edwards to implement those recommendations. Edwards said he is looking at the overall energy consumption for the county, which takes up a large portion of the budget. Audits have been performed on the CHAT building, animal control, county health department, extension office, Smith Creek volunteer “ re department, administration building, planning and building department and Medart sports complex. Edwards said an audit on the waste water system has also been requested. County Commissioner Lynn Artz said no action was taken to address the issues identi“ ed in most of the audits. At the animal control building, one of the biggest issues is a freezer outside that leaks. There is also an HVAC issue, said Dan Ard with Talquin Electric. He added that the county needs to look long term, not what costs the least right now. Shortsightedness is the biggest detriment you have,Ž Ard said. Edwards said they are currently working on the animal control building to help with ventilation in the kennel area. He added that replacing the freezer is on the to do list. The committee also discussed installing a solar thermal water heater in the building, which currently does not have hot water. The committee also suggested an audit be performed on the community center and supervisor of elections and property appraiser building. Artz said there are plans to renovate the community center, but she wants the county to make it as energy ef“ cient as possible. Ard said he could do an audit on the buildings before renovations to see what the county is starting with. Once the speci“ c plans are drawn up for construction, Ard can suggest the most energy ef“ cient products and designs to use that fall within the $392,000 budget. Ard said he would separate out green versus ef“ cient and try and get the county the most bang for its buck. Another issue in many county buildings is aging air conditioning units. Edwards said in the county administration building, there is one unit running the entire building.

Continued from Page 1 And the community supports the senior center, as evidenced by the centers April Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon where 172 volunteers were recognized. When Carter “ rst came on board at the center, he recalls that most of the people who used the facility were frail and elderly … and I mean, frail financially.Ž Other seniors, perhaps better off “ nancially, felt that the center wasnt intended for them. Carter felt that was wrong. The big thing … isolation and loneliness is not based on economic conditions.Ž He stressed everyone was welcome. And thats created a culture in the center where They are helping each other out there … seniors helping seniors.Ž Hes thought of retiring again, he says, but the idea of creating an Adult Daycare Center keeps him going. Theres an obvious need, he says, and theres support from Medicaid to create revenue … and getting the project off the ground obviously inspires him. Its a joy working here,Ž he says with a grin, and speaks of the pleasure of having an impact on peoples lives. I really believe one day we will stand before a measuring stick … and youll be judged by what youve done for other people,Ž he says. … WILLIAM SNOWDENR.H. Carter Amy GeigerContinued from Page 1 The library provides free meeting space for local groups that are open to everyone. No group can exclude anyone. If you are here to check out a book and want to poke your head in, you are more than welcome,Ž Joyner says. The library provides a free summer program for children in the community, which features special events at the library, as well as “ eld trips. All which are free, thanks to the Friends of the Library, a volunteer organization who helps provide extra funding to the library to purchase needed items, such as new computers. The Friends of the LIbrary has saved taxpayers over $50,000Ž over the last few years, Joyner says. The library also provides free internet to all patrons, free computers classes, Friday night movie showings and also works with the local schools to provide books for summer reading. Starting next month, the library will also provide a space for AARP to offer tax help to seniors and low-income residents. There are so many services outside of checking out books,Ž Joyner says. Starting this summer, patrons will be able to check out e-books. Its a very big thing on the to do list,Ž Joyner says. Other libraries in adjoining counties are already offering that service and Joyner says they are trying to keep up. Workshops will be held to explain the process once it gets closer, Joyner says. The library is also about to expand to allow even more meeting space and hopefully a study area, Joyner says. He also wants to try and encourage more teenagers to visit and use the library. Children and older adults, visit the library, but Joyner says people between the ages of 15 and 40, hardly ever visit the library. Once Joyner “ nishes his masters degree, he says he wants to become more active in the community and join up with the Senior Center to offer more for the senior citizens, as well as restart the literacy program. He also hopes one day to add another branch in the northern part of the county. But that will take funding from the state through a library construction grant, which he says hasnt been funded the last four years. The library is no longer a place where you are being shushed, Joyner says. It is a place for the community to gather. We love serving the public,Ž Joyner says. We want to continue to provide services so that the community will continue to support us, he adds. Were the only county agency where people come through the door happy,Ž Joyner says. We try to keep that going.Ž… JENNIFER JENSEN ree People You Should KnowScott JoynerContinued from Page 1 Geiger is the incoming president of the Chamber of Commerce, the past president of Rotary Club of Wakulla and a volunteer with Big Bend Hospice. She also supports the Wakulla Coalition for Youth, and made a contribution of $1,000 to the organization when she was awarded the Capital City Banks Julian Smith Award for community service. She was drawn to the youth coalition after seeing its Be the WallŽ campaign around the county, learning more about it and discovering it was a group that could use some funding. Geiger also serves on the district advisory council for the school board, and Medart Elementarys council. Additionally, Capital City Bank supports several local organizations with annual grants through its foundation, including Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, Florida Wild Mammal Association and Big Bend Hospice. While participating in the recent Operation Santa drive, Geiger says she was struck by hearing a volunteer say, I just want to do something good.Ž Working with a number of groups also gives Geiger the chance to act as an advocate, or to be a resource when others may not know where to turn or whats available. If you can help somebody,Ž she says. Sometimes you dont even realize youre helping, just by listening. I think thats why we do it,Ž she says. Because we want to help.Ž… WILLIAM SNOWDEN The Medart Elementary School P .T.O. would like to thank Bobby Pearce for 10 1/2 years of service as our principal.Congratulations and best wishes on your new endeavor!WELOVEYOU ANDWILLMISSYOU!YOUWILLALWAYS BEONEOFUS, THEMIGHTYMUSTANGS!
