Donaldson Ora Lee Lott Eva Marie Linton TrawickSchool referendum passesLocal veterans travel to Washington By WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.net A special referendum on whether Wakulla County citizens wanted to impose a half-mill tax on themselves to support the local school system passed by a slim margin of 15 votes on Tuesday, May 14. A low voter turnout was expected for the referendum and it appeared that roughly 10 percent of Wakullas 18,108 registered voters cast ballots. The referendum asked voters if the Wakulla County School Board can levy a .5 mill tax on property owners for four years. A current .25 mill levy expires in June. A mill equals $1 in tax for each $1,000 of property value. An average Wakulla County home valued at $100,000 would pay about $50 for the levy. The big winner tonight was the students of Wakulla County schools, said Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce. Its all about the students. School Board Chairman Ray Gray commented that for some voters the issue was about money with many apparently opposed to higher taxes. But he said that after election night, Its about the kids. Absentee and early voting was overwhelming opposed to the millage increase 56 percent to 43 percent. But the precinct tallies, especially the Crawfordville precinct, reversed the trend and put more votes for the increase. Technical problems with phone lines added to the drama, with Crawfordville, Ivan and Smith Creek all having to be driven to the supervisors office for counting. Besides the concern about a tax increase, another controversial aspect of the referendum, it seemed, was the cost. Several citizens called The News irate about the estimated $36,900 cost the school board will pay for the referendum. Supervisor Wells said he had also heard from several voters on election day complaining that they had been completely unaware of the referendum adding that he should have sent out sample ballots to all voters as in other elections. Wells said he made the choice not to send out sample ballots to keep costs down.Delinquent Tax list inside this editionBy slimmest of margins, Wakulla voters approve half-mill tax increase for schoolsBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net On Saturday, May 11, four Wakulla County residents were present aboard a ight dedicated solely to World War II veterans.

He orders iced tea and the fried hamburger steak with two sides. At least two parties stop by during lunch to either razz him about his long-winded storytelling or ask him about the Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory, an aquarium and environmental education center in Panacea, his lifelong project. A local celebrity of sorts, Jack Rudloe is a well-known naturalist, outspoken environmentalist, and worldrenowned expert of Gulf marine life. Hes been interviewed on the Today Show, National Public Radio, and Fox News. Articles about him and his work have run in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Sports Illustrated, Audubon and more. However, it is the collaborative work with his late wife and writing partner, Anne, that speaks to something greater the energy a creative longterm partnership can yield. Two lives, intertwined for 42 years in work, play, and love. Together their published books include The Sea Brings Forth, The Erotic Ocean, The Living Dock, Search For The Great Turtle Mother, Potluck, Butter- ies on a Sea Wind, and Priceless Florida. Sadly, Anne died last April after a seven year battle with cancer. Rudloe ambles through the quiet house they shared, photographs of their family hang throughout. Underfoot are two blackand-white dogs, Lily and Sharkbait, nails clicking on the wood oors. Windows perforate the woodpaneled rooms, filtering in dappled light from the canopy of oak and pine outside. The furniture is arranged to take advantage of a sweeping view of Dickerson Bay. As Rudloe walks into the room that once served as his wifes office, his hand slips out of his pocket and he opens his palm skyward, This is where she died. We set up a place for her here. A sign above the doorway reads Everything No Problem Last words Zen Master Seung Sahn. Rudloe says the banner always hung in their bedroom, but he moved it here for her, and here is where it remains. An annual fundraiser called Sharks and Chablis, held at the Marine Laboratory, was cancelled last year, due to Annes passing.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com TM TM TM By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netApalachee Bays 10 new paddlings trails are officially up and running as a ribbon cutting was held Monday, May 13 in St. Marks. A large group of kayaking enthusiasts and project supporters gathered at the St. Marks city park boat launch to learn about the countys newest asset. Tourist Development Council Director Pam Portwood greeted the crowd and was quick to express gratitude for the support of the community and the partnerships that went into the project. Im working out my last couple of weeks with the Tourist Development Council, Portwood began, and I cannot be prouder that this is going to be one of the last things that people are going to say I had anything to do with. She went on to recognize members of the steering committee as she said that is where most of the real work took place. Committee members are Mark Mitchell from Panacea Waterfronts, Mike McNamara from St. Marks Out tters, Rob Baker with T-n-T Hideaway and Wilderness Way, Liz Sparks with FWC Apalachicola River Paddling Trail System, Madeleine Carr who contributed substantially with the maritime history of Apalachee Bay, Don Lesh and Diane Delaney of Applied Sustainability Enterprises, and Doug Alderson with the state Department of Environmental Protection. It was an excellent group of people that worked really hard, commended Portwood. There are segment maps for each of the 10 different trails available in a downloadable format that will be on the Visit Wakulla and Big Bend Scenic Biway websites. There are also laminated versions that will be available at welcome centers, outfitters and business around the boat launches that can be checked out by paddlers during their trips. Portwood made sure to recognize the two main funding partners as well: DEPs Coastal Partnerships Initiative as well as the Department of Economic Opportunity, while local businesses and departments also pledged to promote and support the trails in various ways. Billy Bishop of the St. Marks partnership and Mark Mitchell of the Panacea partnership talked about the two communities working together. I think this shows exactly what waterfront partnership is all about, said Mitchell. Every 85 people that we bring to our community creates a job for our community and that is what this is all about bringing sustainability to Wakulla County. All of you out here are proof that working together really does pay off, added Bishop. This is really going to bene t us and we thank you all. After the ceremony, attendees could choose from a few eld trips that included a tour of the San Marcos de Apalachee State Park, a pontoon boat tour or a guided kayak paddling tour. AMANDA MAYORRibbon cutting held for new paddling trailsDEPs Doug Alderson and TDC Director Pam Portwood cut the ribbon.Local veterans travel to WashingtonFrom Page 1A There were a total of 79 total veterans from the regional area of northern Florida and southern Georgia. The oldest veteran that made the trip was 102 years old and the youngest was 85. Each adorned a bright yellow shirt as to be easily identi able and each was assigned a guardian to accompany them at all times. After landing in D.C. they made their way by bus to many memorials erected specifically to honor their sacri ces including the World War II Memorial, the Iwo Jima Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. Bonnie Sturchio served in the Marine Corps from 1944 to 1945 during which time she served in Intelligence. She was the only woman on the Tallahassee Honor Flight. Sturchio was accompanied by her grandson, whom she described as a history buff. Im very excited about this trip, Sturchio said the day before she was to leave. It should be very interesting. Deborah Brown was invited to be a guardian on the Honor Flight. Her father was in the U.S. Air Force and served in Japan, Korea, Libya, Thailand and Vietnam. The trip was breathtaking, she said. It was a once in a lifetime event. We had water cannon salutes at both airports and a police escort all day with lights and sirens. At the Baltimore airport, we had a few hundred active duty military shipping out to Afghanistan who stood and cheered for the veterans. Brown was assigned to David Crockett who served in the British Royal Air Force before serving in the U.S. Army Air Corp. He was evacuated from London as a child due to the German bombings. Also among the group was a veteran who helped raise the rst American ag ever raised on Japanese soil. On the same day that 79 regional veterans ew from Tallahassee, four other Honor Flight Network trips ew in from New York, West Virginia, Iowa and Tennessee. The Honor Flight Network is a non-pro t organization created with the intention of honoring Americas veterans and to show them gratitude for all of their sacri ces. According to the groups website they are currently giving top priority to World War II surviving veterans as we lose more than 800 of those war veterans each day. Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation and as a culturally diverse, free society, the website says. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out. The Tallahassee chapter of Honor Flight was started in the year 2012 and is currently chaired by the director of EMS for Leon County, Mac Kemp. Other officers include Vice-Chair Ed Eckland, Secretary Chief Tom Quillin and Treasurer Tom Napier. The trip was free for veterans, who were not even permitted to make donations. Honor Flight Tallahassee plans to take another trip in the fall, though that date is not yet set. DEBORAH BROWN/SPECIAL TO THE NEWSVeterans greeted as they returned to Tallahassee on Saturday night.
By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netAt their most recent meeting on May 6, county commissioners voted in favor of an ordinance regulating the placement of tobacco products. The ordinance requires vendors to sell tobacco products through vendorassisted transactions and restricts all tobacco products behind a counter in an area accessible only to store personnel or in other areas only accessible to the personnel of the vendor. The proposed ordinance exempts specialty tobacco stores and adultonly establishments. Violations are to be enforced as a civil infraction by the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce in accordance with state statutes. Wakulla Middle School S.W.A.T. (Students Working Against Tobacco) club secretary, Ebony Davis, told commissioners: Im here to represent the students in favor of placing candy flavored tobacco products behind the counters and out of the sight of children under 18 years of age, she said. When she was nished, Commissioner Ralph Thomas voiced his opinion that the proposed ordinance would seek to make something illegal that is already against the law. None of us want children to have tobacco products, said Thomas. But I think at the end of the day this ordinance does not solve that problem. Thomas encouraged kids to speak out to their peers against tobacco as the best way to achieve the goals of the ordinance. Such feel good ordinances are not necessary, Thomas said. Government cant solve every problem. Im going to support this, said Chairman Randy Merritt. I dont think this rises to the level of too much government infringement, and I dont think its going to step on anyones toes. The motion in favor of the adoption of the ordinance passed with a 4-1 vote. In other matters before the board: There was a unanimous vote to pass an ordinance amendment pertaining to the imposition of fees for parks and recreation and enforcement. The passing of this ordinance speci cally authorizes the sheriffs of ce to enforce the payment of fees for use of county parks and recreational facilities. Commissioner Richard Harden wanted to clarify that the ordinance does not require the addition of payment to use public recreational facilities. This does not change any current fees, assured Merritt. This puts an enforcement arm on the current ordinance to where we can assess nes or penalties much like a parking ticket, explained County Administrator David Edwards. If someone does not pay their boat access fees, they will be ticketed either by code enforcement of cers or the sheriffs department. The recommendation was to approve and adopt the ordinance, which passed with a 5-0 vote. County commissioners approved a resolution accepting deeds for rightof-way donations on Summerwood Drive. Bret Hammond of Summerwood Drive had been diligently seeking guidance and approval since last May and, as all paperwork and adherences had nally been satis ed, Commissioner Jerry Moore made an immediate motion to approve which was seconded by Harden. I just want to make sure its clear that this will be precedent setting, Commissioner Howard Kessler said. Im in favor of this, I think it should be done, but I think we need to understand that in similar situation where gate roads and areas that were previously not cared for by the county they need to be treated equally. Kessler explained that as other roads apply and are approved for county grading, it will have a signi cant budgetary impact and that he wanted the board to be prepared to shoulder that responsibility. Absolutely, agreed Merritt. If they are willing to do the effort that these guys did, then we will support. Upwards of 15 citizens had filled out speaker cards on the matter, yet waived their time as Merritt assured them that the motion would pass. The vote was passed unanimously and Hammond was loudly applauded for his yearlong diligent efforts. The board voted to continue to allow residents to set up a mobile home on their property to care for sick relatives under the family enclave policy of the Land Development Code. The board removed, but agreed to bring it up later for review later, allowing such temporary housing for nancial hardship. Commissioners also indicated they wanted to look at including recreational vehicles in addition to mobile homes. Under the old policy, residents could apply to have a mobile home set up on their property temporarily to care for a sick relative or one facing nancial hardship. At a meeting last February, commissioners directed staff to begin working on an amendment to the Land Development Code to allow the use of RVs instead of a mobile home in the situation of a family enclave agreement. A family enclave is a type of temporary use permit in which a property owner can obtain approval to have a second dwelling currently mobile home only placed on their property for a period of one year. The second dwelling is to be utilized by a family member during a time of unanticipated nancial or medical hardship. The commissioners went back and forth discussing the amending of the text and modi cation of wording. I would personally like to see us take out the nancial hardship on this, said Merritt. I dont think you need to have both nancial and medical. I think we should leave medical or nancial in, but not have a nancial quali- er, said Thomas. But that concerned Merritt, as it would leave quali cations too ambiguous. I dont think that is the intent of this, Merritt said. I think the intent was to provide a compassionate option for those with medical conditions. I would say remove nancial all together as medical quali cations are very clearly de ned. Financial hardship is a true hardship, insisted Thomas. Especially in todays economy. Harden was in favor of moving both factors all together as having either would provide restrictions for someone trying to care for their family. I would like to see both the nancial and the medical removed, he said. I believe that if someone wants to take care of their family they should be able to provide that. Kesslers opinion was that the ordinance was trying to cover two different issues. Theres the issue of medical hardship and the issue of economic hardship, he said. I dont think this is right the way it is. Moore wanted to see the quali cations restricted to medical and age. Merritt suggested keeping the medical aspect in the terminology as it seemed like there was a consensus on that issue. But weve got to ask ourselves why were doing this, said Thomas. If were doing it to help families then we need to have a mechanism that truly helps them and not ties their hands down the road. My preference would be to give them the choice of a mobile home or the RV. A discussion followed before the motion was made by Kessler to amend the amendment to only include the medical quali- er and to bring back the nancial aspect later on. The motion also included that the terms of the agreement extend a time period of one year, after which application for renewal can be considered. Thomas seconded the motion. This is something more than we have now, though it may not be perfect, said Harden. Im going to vote for it, but I intend to bring this item back. The motion passed unanimously. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 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.

We have been exploring ways to provide relief to affected property owners through improvements to the countys ood insurance score that is part of the national Community Rating System (CRS). Wakulla County has participated in the CRS since 1999. For property owners in the CRS participating communities, ood insurance premium discounts are available of up to 45 percent in ood hazard areas for the highest level of participation; Wakullas current discount is 15 percent. We will continue to seek potential options in an effort to reduce the impacts of expected ood insurance rate increases. The Solid Waste & Fire Services Hardship Application is due by June 1. To learn more about the eligibility criteria for the Hardship Assistance Application and to obtain the Hardship Application, please visit the County website, www.mywakulla.com, or contact Patty Taylor at 926-0919 ext. 701. Last week Gov. Scott announced that the Shell Point Beach renourishment project was one of the projects recommended for funding through NRDA (Natural Resource Damage Assessment). The project still has to go to public comment before the nal award of $880,000 is made. This is one of 16 projects submitted by the County to NRDA for funding. We will continue to pursue funding on the remaining projects that impact our coastal and shing industry. The week of May 5-11 was proclaimed as Public Service Recognition Week.

Editor, The News: Thank you so much for the great article that Ms. Mayor did on my sexual violence awareness event (Alesia Adams takes on human traf cking, front page, May 2). I really enjoyed meeting her. It made the front page, which shows that you and the paper value victims of human and sexual traf cking. I always appreciate your support on all the issues of domestic and sexual violence that we present at our task force meeting and events. Thank you again. The Wakulla News is a GREAT county paper. Kathy Asbell Refuge House Editor, The News: An open letter to Wakulla County commissioners; Dear commissioners: My name is Andrea L. Mathis and I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing the State Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) program into Wakulla County. I purchased a home for my 11-year-old daughter that needed a lot of repairs but it was a home that I could afford and my daughter would have a home here in the county we love. I have never received any assistance and never in the my wildest dreams believed that we could have been so fortunate and blessed by this program. An old neighbor told me about the SHIP program and to go to the meeting and ll out the paperwork that you never know what could happen and I had nothing to lose by trying. I did go to the meeting and lled out all the paper and we were not only blessed with help but actually a new house instead. I was afraid in our old home after a space heater caught on re in my daughters bedroom one evening and not having the funds to repair for safety, but now we have a beautiful, energy-ef cient, safe and absolutely wonderful home for my daughter to grow up in and stay in Wakulla County. The SHIP program was absolutely great in helping me along with everything I did not understand and answering questions. The contractor, Daniel Godfrey of Godfrey Builders, has been wonderful to work with and took care of everything for us and went above and beyond his duty with the quality and personal touches he added to our house, and dealing with some of the backlash of spiteful residents who did not understand what was going on and that a lot of people truly do not have the money or resources to make their existing home safe. I cannot express enough how thankful and grateful my daughter and I are for what Wakulla County has done to improve our quality of life and caring for its residents. Thank you, Andrea L. Mathis Crawfordville Editor, The News: To Alma Mae Langston on Mothers Day: I am a mamas boy. I love her, revere her, and am grateful that she went down in the valley of the shadow of death to bring me into the world. Ive been a lot of places in my life, places I needed to have been, places I should not have been, but every place I visited, mamas prayers always arrived there before I did. A mothers prayers not only go up to God, but they stick to you like super glue. They hit you in the head and the heart and the gates of hell cant pull those prayers off of you! When she cooked fried chicken on Sunday and there was a chicken breast left on the plate, mama all of a sudden would announce, I dont really care for the breast meat of a chicken, I like the drumstick. I became a man at 21 years of age to all of those in my community and my peers, Ive never been anything but Mamas Baby Boy to her and I still am at 60. A mother is a repository where you dump your hurts, hates and heartaches as a child and she heals the hurts, turns hate into happiness and turns a heartache into a grateful heart; slaps you lightly on the bottom, a kiss on top of the head, and sends you out to play. I was the only boy, therefore I was mamas favorite son. She pampered me! Daddy worked from sun-up to sundown. Mama worked from son-up to son-down. Yes, I was spoiled, but I was never a spoiled brat. Mama is as much a part of me now as she was the day I was born. She gave me life and still gives me life. Maybe Im still being born. But now the roles have somewhat reversed she is inside me; my heart, my mind and my love. The only way anyone could be more alive inside of me would be for me to have a heart transplant. But still, it would not be the same as mother. I love my mama! T.W. Maurice Langston Crawfordville By SEN. BILL MONTFORDThis was a very active and productive legislative session. Our voice was heard, strong and clear, as we advocated for North Floridas hardworking citizens. Sen. Montfords actions can only af rm that he understands our needs and works tirelessly to nd principled, common sense solutions to those needs. Montford participated in the following Florida Legislation: Improvements to education: I truly believe our future is in our childrens hands, and it is this that drives my passion to give them the best opportunities. His passion for education led the Senator to support improvements to Floridas educational system including providing more college and career-ready opportunities, ensuring low performing students needs are met and instituting more local control by reducing unnecessary regulations. He sponsored a very successful deregulation bill that removed unnecessary and duplicative regulation and rules. State employee pay raise: Recognizing Floridas public employees, the legislature mandated that state employees, school teachers and school district employees be given a well-deserved pay raise. These are honest people putting in a hard days work, and they deserve to be rewarded with livable pay. A pay increase is long overdue and its high time we acknowledge how hard our state employees work, Montford said. Preservation of the Apalachicola River Basin and Bay: Montford supported Governor Rick Scotts funding of $3 million dollars towards Water Quality Improvement projects in the Apalachicola Bay and Apalachicola River Basin. The allocation of $400,000 to the protection, restoration and research of natural oyster reefs and beds came as a result of his leadership during the 2013 Legislative Session and budgetary process. Public Work Squads: To ensure the continuation of the public work squads from our prisons a line item of 34 million dollars was added to the budget. This will result in a tremendous savings for the tax payer. FRS Retirement System: After numerous threats to change the retirement system, Senators stood up for the hard working people of Florida and left the retirement system intact. North Florida has something unique and special and it must be recognized and protected.

A newly renovated room is being dedicated in her memory. Jack Rudloe graduated Leon High School in 1961 and spent three short months at the Florida State University Marine Laboratory, when it was located at Alligator Point. They didnt like the fact that Id started a little business collecting specimens and selling them, he says with a shrug, I guess I was all full of myself. So with not much more than a net and a bucket, and working out of the back of his car collecting specimens, Rudloe started the Gulf Specimen Company. Rudloe, quite the character in his own right, has been compared to Ed Ricketts, the excentric marine scientist immortalized by author John Steinbeck in the novel Cannery Row. But the comparison is anything but shallow. As a young scientist clearing his own path in marine specimen collection and taxonomy, Rudloe, after reading Steinbecks The Log from the Sea of Cortez, wrote to the famous author. I had this little hammerhead shark on the letterhead for my company that was then called Gulf Specimen Company. He (Steinbeck) got a lot of mail, but the shark caught his eye, since he was a marine biologist too, says Rudloe. A friendship grew. In a 1981 article for The Wakulla News, Rudloe writes about the fouryear correspondence and series of visits between himself and Steinbeck. Long before I ever picked up the book, people were telling me I was Doc in Cannery Row, he wrote. He thinks of Steinbeck as a mentor, and credits the authors encouragement in helping Rudloe push on even when it felt like failure was inevitable. In late 1960s, Jack met Anne at Crums gas station. She was wearing a wet suit, standing next to a parked car. He had stopped to fill up and vaguely recognized her. Curious, he walked over. A past customer, she had collected some specimens she was attempting to identify, and Jack offered to help. They began dating after this encounter, but he explains that he was dating several different women at the time. It was an accident, he recalls, that brought them closer. Anne lost her big toe one day at St. Theresa on Jacks boat propeller. He explains how the boat got away from her and she tried to catch it, but was swept under instead. It almost killed her, he says, It was really bad. She was in the hospital for about two weeks. His face turns soft as he describes setting up a lighted saltwater aquarium in her hospital room full of unique marine plants and sh. She wasnt getting much rest at the hospital because people kept coming by to see the aquarium, he grins. He helped during her recovery. So, the toe accident kinda helped things along with us, he admits. Anne was a writer, a teacher and practiced Zen meditation. She received her Ph.D. in marine biology from FSU in the late s, and taught there for many years. Her research centered around horseshoe crabs, sea turtles, electric rants and mysid shrimp. They eventually married and cobbled a life together of marine collection, road trips and writing. They wrote and published as partners for years, arguing over paragraphs and titles as any two brains would in such a close working situation. Yet they were also living together and raising their two sons, Sky and Cypress. It wasnt always peaches, it was like any marriage, Rudloe says. Anne also wrote extensively about her experience with cancer, facing death with a beautiful acceptance, actually giving thanks for her disease. Her last blog entry is an eloquent and touching reminder that death is simply part of the circle of life. She gives an offering of hope: So I have learned to give thanks for all the tough lessons that teach us what we would never learn voluntarily. When we stop whining, when we realize that this too is part of the experience of living a full life then, when a major disease comes, we can truly give thanks for it. Its an intense and rich way to live, like having a challenging teacher always in your face, forcing you to live at your highest level of insight, ability, and courage. Im oating, Jack says about his current existence. After four decades of sharing a life with someone, hes now trying to gure out how to do it all alone. He sits on a bench at the end of the dock, the wind blows steady through his white hair. A group of students from Valdosta, Ga., can be heard in the background, discussing specimens they just lifted in the collection nets. He ignores the chatter, and looks out, across the water. Rudloe discusses a project hes had in his head for 30 years. Hes writing a book about spheres, circles balls, he calls them, and hes been talking about their relevance for a long time. He says its an autobiography. This doesnt seem like a stretch. My family got really tired of me talking about balls and spheres all the time. One family vacation I was told by all three of them to stop talking about balls, and so I did, he says with excitement, And it was all I could do to keep my mouth shut. Because they are everywhere. Rudloe discusses the universal power of the sphere, suggesting that humans are not really in control. We dont play the ball, the ball plays us, he says. Long ago a childhood accident left Jack with vision in only one eye, his left. Of course, the eyeball is yet another sphere in Rudloes philosophy, in line with a lifetime of challenges and unorthodoxy. He offers one last bit of insight into his partnership with Anne its own spinning ball of energy and a smile wrinkles his face. She always liked to do the driving.Everybody knows Jack Rudloe PHOTOS BY JENNY ODOMPhotos of Anne Rudloe on a wall in Jack Rudloes home, above. Jack Rudloe on the dock with his two dogs.

(850) 926-7102 Now thats news I can use OUT TO PASTORBy JAMES L. SNYDER I have a terrible confession to get off my chest. It is a secret I have tried to hide from family and friends for years. Up to this point, I have been fairly successful in hiding this but I believe the time has come to clear the air. Having a secret is a terrible burden to bear especially around people who know you. You always run the risk that somebody is going to nd out and then tell everybody and then the whole world knows your secret. The purpose of a secret is so that nobody knows. If it gets out, it is no longer a secret. I even tried to keep this from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, which comes as close to walking on water as I have ever come. Several times, she has come close to nding out this deep seated secret of mine. Even though this is risky business, I need to make a full confession. Someone has said that confession is good for the soul, but I am not quite sure. My confession is this, and please do not hate me because of it, I love to take afternoon naps. There, I said it. I am not sure what it did for my soul but I do not feel any happier about making this confession. I am a rm believer in what some people refer to as the power nap. The problem is I live amongst a people that believe if you take a nap in the afternoon you are either very young or getting very old. The former is not the issue, and I will take issue with the latter. I must admit that there was a time in my life when I did not take time out for naps. In fact, I had a hard time going to bed before midnight. I hated going to bed and could not wait until morning came so I could jump out of bed and get back to work. Do not get me wrong, I was not a workaholic. I just liked what I was doing. I am not sure when it started but I noticed a few years ago I was not resisting going to bed like before. I did not ght it is much as I used to. If the truth were known, hopefully it wont be, as soon as my head hit the pillow the Sandman started doing his thing. It was not long before I started sneaking 40 winks in the afternoon. I distinctly remember one afternoon when my wife came in and said, Youre not taking a nap, are you? I know lying is not a good thing, especially to your spouse. Sometimes when you are in a x such as I was in at that moment, the truth scampers in the opposite direction. No, I stuttered as she looked at me. I was just meditating. I guess everybody snores when theyre meditating, she said with a smirk on her face. From then on, it was a game trying to get in a nap without getting into trouble. I did nd out that after one of my power naps I was able to do a lot more work. However, I kept that bit of information to myself. Then my whole world changed. Dont you like it when something happens proving you are right? It does not happen very often to me, when it does, I relish it like a freshly baked Apple Fritter. I happened to be watching some television news program. I confess I was half dozing and watching at the same time, but suddenly they said something that got my full salute attention. According to the news story and they cant put it on TV unless its true, right? research showed that there was a great deal of bene ts associated with afternoon naps. That was enough for me and I, like the gentleman I am, called for my wife to come and watch this news story with me. Some things in life should be shared and this was one of them. Afternoon naps drastically reduce the danger of heart attack and improve a persons memory. So, I said to my wife after the story, what do you think of that? She smiled and looked at me and said, Well, it must work because you never forget to take a nap. I will forgive her for the hilarious laughter following her remark. Just so you know, the laughter did not come from me. I may have been smiling on the outside but I was snorting on the inside. For years, I thought taking an afternoon nap was rather beneficial. Now I have the proof and I can indulge in a daily power nap without feeling any sense of guilt at all. I love it when I have been proven right. Now I take great delight in one of my favorite Bible passages. Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls (Matthew 11:28-29). A friend of mine often says, Come apart and rest a while or youll just come apart. An afternoon nap has unashamedly become part of my daily activity.Rev. James L.

Special to The NewsThe Wakulla/Franklin Team of Big Bend Hospice is seeking volunteers to provide respite, companionship and care for our patients and families. Volunteers ll not only a Medicare requirement for the operation of Big Bend Hospice, they play a vital role in the quality of care received by those who have entrusted us to care for their loved one who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Our patient/family volunteers provide services that allow the caregiver the opportunity to go buy groceries, to take care of final arrangements, or to simply sit on the front porch and catch their breath. Some caregivers choose to stay at home while a volunteer is in the home and some take this opportunity to take care of things outside the home. Volunteers will often sit with patients and just listen. Caring for patients and their families at the end of life requires special people who have the caring spirit and commitment. Big Bend Hospice is committed to providing the education, tools and work environment to allow you to perform at your best. If you would like to join the Wakulla/Franklin Team of Big Bend Hospice as a volunteer, contact Pam Raker Allbritton at 508-8749 or call our Crawfordville office at 9269308.Big Bend Hospice needs volunteers

Linton; and a sister, Phyllis Cody.Ora Lee Lott Charles K. Donaldson Eva Marie Linton Trawick By DR. BETSY GOEHRIGIn just the past few months, my family and I have experienced a few new things in life. We moved to a new house at least new to us. We live in a new community, a new state, have new jobs, a new school, and a new church. Thats a lot of new! But thats life. Life is full of change. So, whats new with you? What new thing is God doing in your life? From Isaiah 61: I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my whole being shall exult in my God; for God has clothed me with the garments of salvation.For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations. You shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will give. This passage talks about whats new for the people of God new clothes for a new occasion, new growth springing forth from the earth, and a new name that God will give. It is full of praise and rejoicing. Its so easy to praise and rejoice when everything is going great in our lives, isnt it? Its not so easy to praise, rejoice, and be so positive and hope- lled when times are tough. Murphys Law basically states that, Anything that can go wrong, will. No, its not so easy to rejoice and exult in praise when youre experiencing a Murphys law kind of day. Or a Murphys Law kind of week. Or a Murphys law kind of year. Or for some, even a Murphys law kind of life. Its so easy to see when Murphy is there with you. Sometimes its not so easy to see when God is there. Sometimes when were having those everything-is-going-wrong kind of times, God can seem pretty distant. Isaiah reminds us God is still there with us, still there for us, even when everything seems bleak. Isaiah describes a new name and a new status for a people who are in the midst of very disheartening and discouraging circumstances. Jerusalem had been leveled to the ground by the armies of Babylon. After 50-70 years in Babylonian captivity, the Jewish exiles returned to their homeland full of optimism, expecting times of great joy and celebration. The people found the task of rebuilding their once proud homeland next to impossible. They had come home to a forsaken and abandoned city. The walls of Jerusalem lay scattered in broken pieces. The once magnificent Temple was in ruins. It appeared to the people that they had been abandoned and that God was silent. The name of once proud Judah became Azubah, meaning Forsaken. The name of the chosen covenant people became Shemamah, meaning Desolate. It is to this severe disappointment that the prophet Isaiah spoke Gods word. Isaiahs message is a word of hope that was and still is desperately needed. God is doing a new thing in the lives of Gods people, and God is going to give them a new name. God has a history of giving out new names that change lives. Abram became Abraham. Saul became Paul. New names for new lives. Isaiah helped the people of Israel see that God had not forgotten them after all. They really were not alone and there was a renewed life for them. Maybe today you need a word of hope. We certainly are going through a time around our nation and around our world when people feel desperate and forsaken and need a word of hope and a sign of Gods presence. We can be that voice of hope and faith in a hurting world. If God reveals to you a new name, what might that be? Maybe you will be given a new name like Forgiven. Or Healed. Or Strong. Or Blessed. Or maybe God will give you a new name like Leader, Servant, Teacher, or Minister. A new name means a new life, new opportunities, and new responsibilities. So, whats new with you? Rev. Dr. Betsy Goehrig is pastor and New Church Planter with the Disciples of Christ Church. HEAVENS TO BETSYSo whats new with you? Special to The News Dianne Flynn, primary case manager for Big Bend Hospices Franklin County team, was awarded the 2013 Carol Pluchino Gaeta-Jaffee Award for Nursing Excellence. This award is given to honor a nurse who has made a signi cant contribution to the Big Bend Hospice nursing practice each year. Nominated by her supervisor, Regina Compton, Flynn was recognized for her professional accomplishments, personal commitment to the care of hospice patients and being a strong patient advocate. When Flynn decided to work closer to home, Big Bend Hospice reaped the bene ts. She came to BBH in 2003 as a seasoned RN after working as a triage nurse for Southeast Urological Associates. Prior to SUA, she worked at TMH in several different units, ranging from Medical Surgical to Oncology. This experience was valuable, considering the large territory she covers as a case manager for Franklin and a portion of Wakulla County in a remote area of the Apalachicola National Forest. Her case load averages 14 to 20 patients at any given time and as a seasoned nurse with a variety of clinical experience and broad knowledge base, she has the critical thinking skills required to help patients and their families navigate the end-of-life continuum. A native of Pensacola Bay, the Franklin County area, with its beaches and coastline, are a second home to her. She appreciates the shing stories and is able to relate well with the diverse population in Franklin and Wakulla counties. For example, communication can sometimes be a challenge with some of the patients. She goes above and beyond to simplify the understanding of the disease process as well as color coordinate the medications to ensure the patient takes them correctly. Consequently, customer and physician satisfaction in Franklin County have increased since she came to Big Bend Hospice in 2003. One patient who lived in the middle of the Apalachicola National Forest had Flynn as her primary case manager. The lady had never complied with physicians orders unless it was convenient for her. With a cardiac diagnosis, many felt her days would end quickly. However, Dianne began spending time with the patient and her spouse educating them on symptom management. They felt that she was on their side and so the patient began weighing herself daily, taking her medications and calling the physician when she felt she needed help. Many months later, this patient graduated from Big Bend Hospice because she did, and is still doing, what Nurse Dianne taught her. Carol Pluchina Gaeta-Jaffee worked her entire professional life as a registered nurse. She graduated from St. Vincents Hospital School of Nursing in Jacksonville in 1967 and was licensed to practice in Florida, Illinois and Louisiana. She worked in various hospitals in Orlando before becoming disabled by an onthe-job accident. After recovering, she worked in the AIDS clinic of the Orange County Health Department, before accepting a position with the AIDS Resource Alliance (ARA). Gaeta-Jaffe moved to Tallahassee in March 1993 to begin work as a Big Bend Hospice nurse. After being injured in a car accident she was unable to work again and retired from nursing. She was a talented cook, caterer and oral arranger who shared her hobbies with the patients she served. She died in Hospice House on Sept. 15, 2004, after a long struggle with Castlemans disease a little known disorder of the lymphatic system. Her husband Reid Jaffe honors her memory with this award. Jaffe surprised Dianne and her husband, Danny, at the Big Bend Hospice staff meeting in February by presenting the award in person. In true Nurse Dianne form, she was humbled by the honor, thanked everyone and then rushed out to meet with her rst patient of the morning. Dianne is a natural at case management and takes her role seriously, says Regina Compton. Many of our patients in rural Franklin and Wakulla request Nurse Dianne to be their hospice nurse. Big Bend Hospice has been serving this community since 1983 with compassionate endoflife care along with grief and loss counselors available to provide information and support to anyone in Leon, Jefferson, Taylor, Madison, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin or Wakulla counties.

Bad Bobs of Sopchoppy has invited local classic car and motorcycle owners to ride down to Sopchoppy and ll up with hard to nd gasoline. Local Sopchoppian, Papa Don Edwards and friend Dave the Bartender Earle have expounded on their offer and have started a Sunday Morning CARS and COFFEE cruise-in. Their idea is cruise to Bad Bobs, top off their tanks, and talk to fellow enthusiasts, while sipping coffee or drinking a refreshing sweet tea! Lisa, Bobs daughterin-law, and manager says, We love the idea of the car guys and gals making our family business part of their Sunday morning routine. We will make sure the coffee is hot and the sweet tea is cold Dave the Bartender started the Sopchoppy Car Show a few years ago, but lost the location when the City built the new city hall building in the empty lot where the car show was. Since then, he has been looking for a way to bring local hot-rodders together. Dave says, This just seems like a good opportunity to get something going again in Sopchoppy. We will start off with two Sundays a month, around mid-morning, and see how much interest we get. For anyone interested in getting out for a nice Sunday mid-morning ride, Bad Bobs is hosting the rst CARS and COFFEE cruise-in on May 19th. Then they will continue to welcome enthusiasts the rst and third Sunday mornings of the month. They are located just north of the Express Lane gas station on 319, at the old Lous Bait & Tackle service station.

BARTNICKS THIRD GRADE CLASS On Wednesday morning, May 1, our class had a special guest. Her name was Mrs. Geri Savell. She came to our class with Flat Stanley. Flat Stanley is a ctional character who travels around as a paper at boy, exploring the world and reporting back to students nationwide. Mrs. Savell taught us about the culture and customs of Newfoundland, Canada. She and Flat Stanley shared maps, pictures of baked berries, and a moose. She also brought us some Canadian desserts, including steamed pudding which our class had learned about in our cultural holiday study of Newfoundland. While in Newfoundland, Flat Stanley was able to do some mummering (a holiday tradition) and he met the mayor. Mrs. Savells nephew Aidan took Flat Stanley on a sledding adventure in the snow, gave him a smores treat, and let him participate in a snowball ght. Mrs. Kathryn Beaty introduced us to Mrs. Geri Savell so that Flat Stanley could make this special journey. Mrs. Beaty and her sister Becky also joined Mrs. Savell for our special morning of learning.

Free sports physicals will be available on SaturdaySpecial to The NewsWakullas health care providers are teaming up to offer free sports physicals to local student athletes on Saturday, May 18 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. These medical evaluations will satisfy the annual requirements of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). Students who plan to participate on athletic teams (or cheerlead) at the high school or either middle school during the 2013-2014 school year may take part. NJROTC cadets, Scouts, summer campers, Special Olympians, and other students who need pre-participation physicals will be accommodated as well. Students with no primary care provider or no health insurance are especially encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. The physicals will be offered at Tallahassee Memorials Family Medicine Of ce at 15 Council Moore Road. This medical of ce is located south of the County Courthouse on the east side of Crawfordville Highway. Several other local clinicians will be participating, not just providers with this practice. Student athletes should check with their coaches to nd out what time they should report to Tallahassee Memorials Family Medicine Of ce. In general, students attending Wakulla Middle School should report between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., Riversprings Middle School between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., and Wakulla High School between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. However, some teams are being given speci c times at which to report. Families with children attending two schools may choose the most convenient slot for both students. The medical evaluations on May 18 will include a history, a vision check, measurements of height, weight, heart rate, and blood pressure, and a physical exam by a licensed physician (or PA/ARNP). A parent or guardians signature is required, so parents must either accompany their child or the student must bring the FHSAA form with a parents signature on it. The form is available at the schools or online at: http://www.fhsaa.org/forms/general-forms/generaleligibility/el2 Members of the Wakulla Health Care Task Force are offering free physicals to prevent any student who wants to play sports (or cheerlead) from being denied an opportunity to participate because they lack a family doctor, health insurance, or the ability to pay. In addition to local clinicians, nurses, paramedics/ EMTs, allied health professionals, clerical staff, and other volunteers will be assisting. All of these professionals are donating their time to provide this free community service. For more information, please contact Lynn Artz (320-2158; firstname.lastname@example.org). Special to The NewsWakulla Middle School Seventh Grader, Andrew Walker was named Youth Advocacy Board Member for 2012-2013.

Abal was thwarted in the throwing events by fouling in all six of his throws. Competing in the Tallahassee Senior Games Regional Competition at Godby High School on March 15, he was able to redeem himself by placing with a Bronze medal in the deadlift powerlift competition which qualified his entry into the Senior Games State Competition scheduled for Dec.7-15 in Lee County. By ALAN ROSS A pair of Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas conquered the Track Too Tough to Tame at least on this night as Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin went 1-2 in Saturdays Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Kenseth, the sensation of the 2013 season, logged his third win of the year and 27th lifetime in the Cup series. Throughout most of the race it seemed that the third Gibbs entry, the No. 18 of Kyle Busch, would carry the night. But after passing his brother Kurt the polesitter and lap leader for 69 of the rst 82 laps the man who dominated with 265 laps led cut a right rear tire in the run-up to the checkered ag and fell to a disappointing sixth. The early going was a racers delight, with the first yellow not falling until more than a third of the race had been completed around the 367-lap 1.366-mile trek known affectionately/menacingly as The Lady in Black. Busch brie y lost the lead to Jeff Gordon on Lap 186, gaining it back 17 laps later after getting a head of steam coming off Turn 2 to propel himself past the 24. Jimmie Johnson then passed Gordon for second not long after. That order stood with 75 laps to go, still all green ag racing but for the one caution. Then Regan Smith spun on Lap 302, bringing out the second yellow. But as he would on all five restarts, Busch held off every challenger, his level of dominance crushing with 44 laps left. Ever so slowly, though, Kenseth began closing the gap between himself and his front-running teammate, down to under a second with 17 laps remaining. It was clear the race would come down to the two JGR cars, and now Hamlin, yet another Gibbs car, eased into the mix. Then, with 13 to go, Kenseth put a rm pass on Busch and was gone. The most dominant car of the season had just beaten the most dominant car of the night. Gordon nished strong, passing Busch for third with six laps left to come in behind Kenseth and Hamlin. It was Gordons 300th Top Five nish in 700 career starts. Johnson, a fourth-place finisher at Darlington, extended his points lead over Carl Edwards to 44 as the series heads for some all-star fun Saturday night at Charlotte. ROADIDE RAVE: Some awesomely aggressive racing took place for two laps between Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne, who restarted 1 and 2 after a caution with 38 laps to go. Kahne dove hard under Busch on their second go-round into Turn 1, clearing him before Busch appeared to slightly brush (nearly brush?) Kahne as he slid up the track on exit after a late turn-in on entry. Whether there was contact or whether Busch took the air off Kahne by close proximity, it is not known, but Kahne lost control, hitting the outside wall and bringing out another caution. SPANISH GRAND PRIX: Ferraris Fernando Alonso passed pole-sitter and race leader Nico Rosberg on Lap 13 of the 66-lap Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona then roared away for his second win of the season and second career Formula One victory before his home countrymen. Alonso, starting fth, ew up to third on the third turn of the opening lap with a daring outside pass of two cars, before heading out after Rosberg and then-second-placerunning Sebastian Vettel. The Spaniard lies in third place in the F1 championship standings behind Vettel and runner-up Kimi Raikkonen, who placed second in Spain.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsFishing continues to be very, very good and all species are being caught. The only fish that hasnt shown up here in good numbers yet is cobia. Spanish, blues and ladyfish are here in big numbers and the number of small sharks might outnumber the number that were here last year. Mike Falk Jr. called me today and said he was out on the Ochlockonee Shoals in about 3 to 4 feet of water and he had never seen as many Spanish and blue sh as were out there in his entire life. He said they would hit anything you threw at them. He also said he shed the 12 to 15 feet of water for trout and found nothing. I talked to Capt. Randy Peart today and he said he picked his son up from Ft. Benning, Ga., on Friday afternoon as he has just nished his eight weeks basic training. They were over at Lanark Village fishing and said things were slow. I talked with him a little later and he said they went to Dog Island Reef and it was covered up with big Spanish. They were using yrods and said they had a ball. Randy said they also caught quite a few nice trout out there. I asked him about all the blues and Spanish on the Ochlockonee Shoals and he said this time of year they show up there in huge numbers. He has gone out there and lost more jigs and plugs than he likes to remember. One time he was trolling a mackerel tree with ve hooks and the client hooked five Spanish at once. Now that had to be a real circus. Tomorrow morning he is taking his son back to Ft. Benning and he will go to jump school. After that he will go to Ranger school. Ed Clayton from Tallahassee called me tonight and said his sister Chris, an attorney in Jacksonville, was in town and he took her shing. They put in at the lighthouse and ran down to Gray Mare Rock. Fishing with the Gulp under a Cajun Thunder in about 2 half to 3 feet they limited out on trout on the falling tide early in the morning. They had one 25 inch and one 21-inch trout. He said they lost quite a few big trout up near the boat. Phil Sharp from Tallahassee had a doctor friend of his down on Friday and they came in with nine nice trout. He was shing the West Flats out of Shell Point on that late afternoon falling tide. On Saturday he shed by himself and had four nice flounder and two trout. Mark and Louise Prance took Todd and Kim Helams out on Saturday and came in with eight trout and three flounder. He said they caught a lot of small sharks and lost a nice flounder to one of them. They used the Gulp and live shrimp. Capt. David Fife has been catching lot of trout and reds from Smith Island to Piney Island using live shrimp and the Gulp under a cork. David said he saw his first tarpon over the weekend at East Barnacle Channel. Sarah Voland from Shell Point had her son Doug and her granddaughter down from Atlanta over the weekend for Mothers Day. On the way down they stopped in Stockbridge, Ga., and picked up Tyler Fiscus. Doug is an avid freshwater sherman but never shed in saltwater before. They got down late Friday and after being there a short while, Tyler walked down to the dock and started throwing a Red sh magic spinner. After a few casts he hooked and landed a nice sh but didnt know what it was. He hollered to the house and they came down with a ashlight. Turned out to be a 7-pound red. Needless to say he is now hooked. On Saturday and Sunday they went out on the flats and caught lots of trout and Spanish. They wont have to ask him twice if he wants to go back. Alan Lamarche said he got onto the sh that were out on the Shoals and like Mike Falk he said there were thousands and thousands. Earlier in the week they went after kings and limited on kings, caught a lot of Spanish and caught a 40-pound cobia. I shed with Dalbert Fitch, his wife and son Lonnie from north of Atlanta on Thursday and Friday and we caught a lot of trout and Spanish and a very few reds. Mr. Fitch is 86 and his wife is 85. They were great people and loved to sh. They shed with Capt. David Gibbs for years and when David quit shing he gave them my name. We missed a bunch of sh because they didnt set the hook or didnt set it hard enough. When I go I like to put people on a lot of fish and its frustrating when they miss a lot of sh. In this case it didnt bother me. They were great people, had a great time and I just hope when Im their age I am still shing and can set the hook as hard as they do. On Friday Lonnie hooked or should I say jumped a tarpon that weighed about 80 pounds. If you were raised in the s and s, when you grew up you went to the lake, river or ocean and wanted to come back with a tan. There was no such thing as sunblock. We put on Coppertone and mixed in some iodine so we would turn brown. You didnt think anything of burning because you know if you stayed out in the sun enough you were gonna turn brown. Well, things are a little different now. Tomorrow I have my yearly appointment with Dr. Soni, who is with Dermatology Associates in Tallahassee. I have had several places cut off my nose and face and every time I am in there he freezes quite a few spots and takes biopsies of others. He told me at one time I was a really good specimen. I have a very good friend who is out in the sun all the time and I asked several months back if he had ever been to a dermatologist. He said no and I immediately started harping on the fact that he needed to go. He finally got an appointment with Dr. Soni and went in. They did 20 biopsies. Dr. Soni called him at 7:30 at night after he got the results back and told him to be in his of ce the next morning at 7 a.m. Three came back as cancer and once came back as melanoma. Fortunately, they got the melanoma in time and he is gonna be ne. Kind of sore from the 21 stitches but better than the alternative. The reason I am writing about this is to tell you folks out there that you need to see a dermatologist. Whether male of female, if you are out in the sun a lot now or were when you were younger and dont see a dermatologist on a regular basis, Im telling you now, you need to go. I go to Dr. Soni in Tallahassee with Dermatology Associates and I know t here are a lot of other dermatologist around. But when they call you at 7:30 at night, theres something to be said for that doctor. Ed Clayton, who I mentioned earlier in my column, had one of his grandfathers die from skin cancer. He was out in the sun all the time and never used any kind of sun block. When he grew up there was no such thing. If you dont already go, MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A DERMATOLOGIST! This weekend is the Wakulla Kids Fishing Tournament and they are still looking for some folks with boats to take a few of the kids shing. You dont need to have a Captains license but if you do that is great. If you have verbally committed to Bruce Ashley that you would be taking some of the kids fishing please give him a call at 528-0046 to recon rm. Also, if you want to make a donation to make sure all kids receive trophies and shing gear its not to late. Donations can be taken to the sheriffs of- ce or Crums in Panacea. Last week was the Kayak Tournament for the seniors and Meals on Wheels and they had 95 kayaks shing. Next week I will have the results. Remember to know your limits and put on that sunscreen. Good luck and good shing!The shing continues to be very, very good From The DockBY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL FWC News Scientists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) have uncovered a new species of black bass in the southeastern United States. Scientists have proposed naming the new species the Choctaw bass and recommended the scientific name of Micropterus haiaka. They revealed their discovery at a meeting of the Southern Division of the American Fisheries Society earlier this year. FWC scientists first noted a DNA pro le that did not belong to any recognized species while testing a bass specimen from the Chipola River in 2007, as part of a broader genetic study of bass. We didnt set out to nd a new species, said Mike Tringali, who heads the genetics laboratory at the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. It found us. After confirming the initial discovery, scientists searched for the DNA pro le in bass caught in nearby rivers to determine the species range. They found that the Choctaw bass inhabits coastal river systems in Alabama and along the western Florida panhandle, including the Choctawhatchee River. We chose the name Choctaw bass because the species range overlaps the historic range of the Choctaw Indians, said Tringali. As for our recommended scientific name, Micropterus haiaka, haiaka is a Choctaw word that means revealed. The American Fisheries Society must approve the suggested scienti c name for it to take effect. The Choctaw bass is very similar in appearance to its relative, the spotted bass. The physical differences between the two species are not easily seen with the naked eye, one reason they had never before been distinguished despite decades of bass studies in the region.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 Page 13Aa peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiencesCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD One mans trash. At an early age I took an interest in the outdoors. This was especially the case with the wilderness areas surrounding my home in Northern Minnesota. As a juvenile adventurer I did my best to research things like wilderness survival, camping, and methods of shing. The result was a rather extensive personal library on these subjects. One of the books I owned early on was called Minimizing Impact on the Wilderness by Michael Hodgson. At an impressionable age this was, no doubt, a key component to building my behaviors today. Last summer I had the opportunity to visit K Tower about 26 miles offshore of our local coast. Gregg Stanton was teaching some basic open water scuba students and between their dives I would dive for a slightly extended period to allow them a proper lunch and surface interval. On both of these dives I went with the intention of shooting video footage, hoping to nd some Goliath grouper and maybe some sharks. This mission ended up taking a back seat to something slightly unexpected. Divers are accustomed to seeing trash, after all its (currently) an inevitable consequence of our existence on this planet, and normally divers are seen removing this trash from our rivers, lakes, and oceans. My dives at K Tower were no different. Rather than the occasional trash bit I found lots, more than I could recover alone on many dives. In these cases I concentrated my efforts on the collection of lead! Yes, that heavy metal that we dont want in our drinking water or on our childrens toys. It seems the tower was covered with it. Between the two dives I lled an ice cream pail with about 58 pounds of the stuff. Where is this lead coming from? Fishermen who have their lines cut or broken tragically lose more than just the shing line, which is bad enough. The lures and weights, used to catch sh, litter the reef-like structure. Ordinarily the trash that divers retrieve has little value but in this case I had about $200 in lead, at a retail value, enough to cover the fuel to get to the tower in any case. Diving in our Gulf waters for any reason can be a low impact activity and by spending an extra minute or two recovering some trash, or in this case a valuable metal, before leaving the bottom helps to lessen the impacts of others and preserves these places for the next generations of both sh and sherman.If any of you have been traveling recently, you may have noticed that there are more and more trailered boats out on the road. You may have also noticed that there are also more trailers that have encountered problems and have been pulled off to the side. More often than not, the reason trailers cause problems are a at tire or bearings that lock up. Improperly in ated tires can lead to sh tailing as well as reduced mileage. It is also important that you make sure your vehicle tires are properly in ated. They will be pulling a lot of additional weight. It does not take long for bearings to heat up either. Without enough grease, they have the potential to lock up and prevent your tires from turning on the trailer. Most trailers have caps that cover the bearings where you can pack grease or you can install buddy bearings to ensure they are properly lubricated. It is also important to check your wench cable and tie down straps to make sure your boat will not shift during trailering. Weight distribution is important to ensure that you do not improperly load your trailer. Once you have all that checked and are ready to hook the trailer to your vehicle, it is critical that you use the proper ball and coupling. Without a snug and proper t, you risk your trailer jumping off the ball. If the trailer should happen to jump off, proper use of the safety chains will help minimize the impact. The chains should form an X under the hitch tongue. This creates a cradle for the hitch should it bounce off. Lastly, be sure to check all lights and make sure that all items are put away so they do not y out during your journey. Excess gear such as tanks for diving can change the weight distribution on your trailer, try to evenly distribute weight. It is also a good idea to check your trailer each time you stop to make sure everything is still on good order.

The annual Law Appreciation Day was held Thursday, May 9 with a luncheon at the Wakulla Shrine Club where Sheriff Creel presented the awards. ROB GIDDENS IS LAW OFFICER OF THE YEAR The 2013 Law Enforcement Of cer of the Year was Detective Rob Giddens. Giddens is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who joined the WCSO in September 2004.

In addition to his regular duties, Detective Giddens is routinely called to assist on tactical arrests and search warrant operations. Sheriff Creel used words such as thorough, professional, disciplined and team work to describe Giddens work ethic. All of Detective Giddens performance evaluations re ect superior ratings, said Sheriff Creel. He takes great pride in his daily efforts and is a true team member of the WCSO. RANDY BARNES IS CORRECTIONS OFFICER OF YEAR Detention Deputy Randy Barnes was selected as the Correctional Officer of the Year. He joined the WCSO in March 2012 and quickly displayed the ability to perform all the tasks required of him. Barnes showed a positive attitude as he displayed pro ciency in every area of the jail including tasks performed by supervisors. Detention Deputy Barnes was recently transferred to the position of Quartermaster within the jail.

Barnes and his work crew can be observed on cleaning details in the jail and in the administrative area of the WCSO as well as passing out of inmates canteen. What makes Randy Barnes special is, after performing all of his tasks, he never hesitates to help the shift when needed, said Sheriff Creel. He is well respected by both the staff and inmates in the jail. ASHLEY CHAPMAN AWARD FOR COMMUNICATIONS The Communications Officer of the Year was Ashley Chapman. She was hired on July 2, 2009 as a Call Taker. She worked her way up to Certified Call Taker and Certified Telecommunicator during her time with the WCSO. She was promoted to Communications Officer in May 2012. During her time with the agency, she has become a valued employee and someone who can be counted on, said Sheriff Creel. Over the last year as a Communications Officer, she has proven to be someone that meets the needs of the citizens as well as the agency. The award recognizes her commitment to improvement and her desire to become a rst rate communications of cer. CIVILIAN EMPLOYEE Robert Pete Cochran was selected as the Civilian Employee of the Year. Cochran joined the WCSO Maintenance Division as Director on March 7, 2011. He worked as a eet manager for the Hertz Corporation from 1994 to 2011 and has 22 years of maintenance management in his career. Cochran was selected as the civilian employee because of his caring and professional attitude. The time of repairs have been cut dramatically and repeat repairs are almost nonexistent. His efforts have helped reduce the cost of parts and labor and the expected maintenance costs are expected to be reduced by one-third. Since taking over the maintenance division he has worked tirelessly to create a service style atmosphere, said Sheriff Creel. Pete describes other employees as customers and his division strives to provide customer satisfaction. This is a hard task when you are responsible for a 350 bed jail, administrative offices, emergency management, communications center, an offsite annex and a eet of ve dozen vehicles. VOLUNTEER OF YEAR Brandon Willis was recognized as the WCSO Volunteer of the Year. Brandon will turn 24 this year and is the son of Gordon Willis and Lawanna Matthews. He is a lifelong resident of Wakulla County and a Wakulla High School graduate. Brandon began his volunteer work in 2009 as a member of the WCSO Explorers Program as a high school student. He has continued to volunteer at the WCSO Training Center and Firing Range where he compiled more than 2,000 hours of volunteer time in 2012. Brandon is very well thought of at the Range, said Sheriff Creel. He is an integral part of the operation and he has a good attitude while working well with the public. He projects the professionalism that I demand out of my employees when dealing with the public. His volunteer hours nearly match that of a fulltime employee. SPECIAL HERO AWARD Sheriff Creel also gave out a Special Hero Award to Chayton Bussey. Bussey, 13, jumped into a swimming pool in March and rescued his 2-year-old brother from drowning. Later the same day, he rescued another friend who was struggling with his swimming. Chayton is serious about his academics as a member of the AB Honor Roll. He is also a football player and wrestler for the Riversprings Middle School Bears. He has a second degree black belt in taekwondo. APPRECIATION FOR TIM ROSE Tim Rose, owner of Macks Meats in Crawfordville, was also recognized with a Certificate of Appreciation for his donation and support of the Wakulla First Responders Relay for Life team. Tim has been touched by cancer and supported the American Cancer Societys fundraiser by donating food items to support the WCSO members participating in the event.Sheriff Creel recognizes staff, citizens on Law DayTallahassee teens arrested in Wakulla after pursuit Special to The NewsWakulla County Sheriffs Office deputies assisted Leon County law enforcement in catching two Tallahassee teenagers who were fleeing Leon County during a 2 a.m. high-speed pursuit on Monday, May 13, according to Sheriff Charlie Creel. Reginald Reshard Donaldson, 18, of Windy Pine Way in Tallahassee and Tariq Akbar Kareem, 18, of Primrose Lane in Tallahassee were apprehended at U.S. Highway 319 and Highway 267 after attempting to flee law enforcement. The armed suspects were wanted for carjacking in Leon County. WCSO Deputy Sean Wheeler observed a Chevrolet Impala southbound on U.S. Highway 319 at a high rate of speed with two Leon County Sheriffs Office vehicles in emergency pursuit. The suspect vehicle attempted to make an eastbound turn onto Highway 267 but due to the speed of the vehicle, crashed into a convenience store ditch. The two teenagers got out of the vehicle and attempted to ee on foot. Deputy Wheeler maneuvered his vehicle in the path of one of the eeing suspects and chased after Donaldson on foot. Kareem fled into a wooded area and was captured behind the convenience store by a Tallahassee Police Department K-9 Unit. Donaldson fled into the woods as well and was caught by Deputy Wheeler who used his Taser to gain control of the suspect. Deputy Wheeler was joined by a Leon County Deputy in taking Donaldson into custody. Both suspects were cleared by Wakulla EMS and were turned over to Leon County Sheriffs Of ce deputies for arrest and transportation back to Tallahassee. The K-9 Unit recovered a revolver which was found to have been stolen out of Tallahassee. In addition to the Wakulla and Leon County Sheriffs Of ces and Tallahassee Police Department being involved in the incident, the Florida Highway Patrol also assisted at the scene. WCSO Deputy Vicki Mitchell, Lt. Mike Kemp and Deputy Billy Metcalf were also involved.Civilian of the Year Robert Cochran, Volunteer of the Year Brandon Willis, Communications Of cer of the Year Ashley Chapman, Sheriff Charlie Creel, Correctional Of cer of the Year Randy Barnes, Law Enforcement Of cer of the Year Rob Giddens and Undersheriff Trey Morrison.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comThe lush green leaves and perfumed blossoms provide an inviting veneer which covers a menacing reality. It is a jungle out there, even if the predators are small and people are usually on the menu. Lurking beneath the foliage are aggressive and voracious creatures which may attack in near in nite waves with only the thought of reducing their objective to mere twigs. Spring may turn a young mans heart to love (and baseball), but bugs want to eat. For many homeowners, this is the season where natures fury is encountered at its fullest, and most expensive. More than one has made divine entreaties seeking relief from plagues worse than those Ramses II endured. One of the major culprits is aphids. This nearly invisible insect uses stealth and disguise to do its damage to awless landscapes and vegetable gardens of Wakulla County. Points of attack are on the underside of leaves and on the herbaceous new-growth stems. Aphids set up colonies where they pierce the plants vascular system like hordes of tiny vampires. Soon spots appear on the leaves and die-off can occur. To add injury to the infestation, the aphids open the plant to a variety of diseases which are unsightly at best and fatal at worst. While latched to the plants, aphids have a naturally occurring problem of their own, that being ladybugs. The brightly colored insects frequent childrens books and movies as friendly, benign creature always with a cheery smile and kind word. Reality is quite different. These ungainly flyers constantly hunt for juicy aphids whose only defense is a good hiding place and luck. Ladybugs land with a diminutive clatter alerting the aphids to the horrors which will soon be forthcoming. The fast and surprisingly agile, ladybugs quickly acquire a target and close in for the kill. What follows is a tiny version of Jurassic Park on steroids. For the aphids it is not pretty, but for the gardener it is justice delivered for damage done. Unfortunately, ladybugs will fall prey to the use of chemical insecticides along with the offending destructive insect. If the ladybug population is high, give them a chance to clean up the problems before turning to the nuclear option. Nature has delivered some vexing challenges and unusual situations to Wakulla County gardeners who desire to produce fresh vegetables. Those close to the coast on tidal creeks and marshes have a uniquely dif cult problem. The wharf crab is found mostly around pilings, stumps, rubble and shell.It is an intertidal creature and active above the water line at low tide. In natural settings it grazes primarily on detritus and fallen vegetation, though they will scavenge dead marine animals to a lesser degree. The wrack line of seaweed is a common foraging area for wharf crabs, but they are not found on a sandy beach. For local gardeners the tiny crabs are a pest which eats tomatoes and eggplant while still in the garden. About the only hope is a ock of hungry seagulls with a deft touch to take the crabs and leave the vegetables. To learn more about Wakulla Countys lawn and garden pests and how to control them, contact the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Of ce at (850) 9263931 or http://wakulla. ifas.u .edu.

A wharf crab, below left, and the damage done. Thank You! The Warriors and Quiet Waters Founda on was formed to help and thank our combat injured Warriors. It is our mission to bring soldiers from military hospitals to the big bend coast for recrea onal therapy to restore the body and spirit. The WQW Founda on wants to thank all of our supporters, donors and volunteers. We have had our rst six day visit by our Warrior guests and it was successful. It was so successful that the sta at Ft. Benning is saying WQW has set the bar for all recrea onal therapy programs. This program could not have succeeded without the support of many of our area businesses and individuals. The gathering of support and the fund raising started long before the soldiers arrived at Wakulla Springs on April 28th and it is ongoing. There are far too many people involved in this e ort to list. A few that stand out are the Crum Family and Crums MiniMall, our rst supporters. Ten Oak Farm, Syn-Tech Fuel Master and Ochlockonee Bay VFD; this is all about the soldier and nancial support is a must. Our guides were Jody Campbell and Mike McNamara, they were loved by the soldiers. Angies Marine Supply furnished live shrimp every shing day. Skeeter Boats and Ingrams Marina assisted with our Bass Tournament Fundraiser. Our support came from Wakulla, Leon, Je erson and Gadsden coun es and as far away as California. Warriors and Quiet Waters wanted to help and thank the injured Warriors and the people of our area came together to make it happen. Our next group of Warriors will be coming in October. If y ou would like to be a part of this program as a volunteer or as a donor please contact us; http://www.facebook.com/ WQWSC or http://www.shingwithwarriors.org / our mailing address is 5032 Capital Circle SW STE @ PMB #128 Tallahassee, FL 32305 and our phone number is 850) 597-3419.From all of the soldiers and from the Board of Warriors and Quiet Waters we extend our most sincere Posey Family Sponsors Fishing with Capt.

& Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 Expedition to Tweeds Cave, GuamRed Clay Footprints, Page 3BSUMMER CAMPSPage 6-7BCourts get busy as lawmakers leaveWeekly Roundup, Page 4BBy JENNY ODOMThe Wakulla NewsAs if the sky speaks to him, local photographer Thomas Maddi shoots with pure intuition. I always feel drawn to go to a certain place, pulled there, he says during an interview at his Crawfordville home. And as Im driving to the spot, my anticipation builds thinking about it, thinking about the shot. Maddi uses air quotes in describing the Old Florida landscape as his subject matter. Drawn to the simplicity of black and white photography, his shooting season, as he calls it, runs from May through September because of the light and the sky. The summer skies in Florida are like no other. There are these huge cumulous clouds that are so magni cent. So many times I get my best shot within minutes of arriving at a place. I get there, set up and its as if the sky is ready for me. I shoot quick because it changes so quickly, he says. Maddi began his photography business in the Florida Keys in the early s, using a large format camera to capture the striking landscapes of the upper and middle Keys. He developed prints in his own darkroom, and sold his work successfully in the area. He also worked the lucrative art show and festival circuit for several years, acquiring honors and awards, including a second place at the prestigious Pigeon Key Art Festival. But about 17 years ago, as more and more people moved to the Keys, Maddi yearned for a less populated and quieter setting. He and his wife, Sandi, relocated to Alligator Point, purchasing a house. About the same time, Maddi renovated a Cracker House along US 98. In it, he ran a successful photography business and gallery until the economy could no longer support it, and he sold the property. Eventually the pair moved to Crawfordville, where they now live with their two daughters, Ashlee, 13 and Abigail, 6, and have a large chicken coop in the backyard. Sandi, besides maintaining the photography business website, teaches at Wakulla Christian Academy. Instead of the large format camera he used for years, Maddi now wields high end digital cameras. He prefers to shoot with a 36-megapixel Nikon D800E and produces his prints on large format archival pigmented ink printers, sizes ranging from 11x14 inches to as large as 40x60 inches. It does not take an art historian to recognize the resemblance between Maddis work and that of famous landscape photographer Ansel Adams. Maddi admits Adams was an early influence and adds that Edward Weston and Clyde Butcher, other pioneers of large format, black and white photography, were early in uences in his decision to develop his craft. Its all about the sky and the clouds. I can nd the sky, but Ive got to nd something to put in front of it, too, he smiles. He describes himself as somewhat of a purist when it comes to manipulating images. I like using the old school techniques of dodging and burning and netuning contrast. All Im doing is all Ive ever done in the dark room, its just that I do it now on a computer in Photoshop, he says. You can see Maddis work locally at Sea Oats Gallery at St. George Island. And, soon, there may be a new venture, as he and his wife have been tossing around the idea of opening a gallery in Apalachicola. Were looking at it, he says with hope and reserve. Its a great little arts community, and its getting exposure from all over the country. And the economy looks like it might be turning around enough to support a gallery again. With a strong connection to the area, Maddi considers his work blossoming from passions both for creating art and for documenting the coastal landscape. He points out an image taken at Mashes Sands a few years ago and notes the impact of the transforming landscape. That place, its just not there anymore, he states. It might be from a storm, or it might be from development, but the land is changing. I feel its an important part of my job as a photographer, in this region especially, to document the change happening right before our eyes. In addition to ne art photography, Maddi runs a commercial wedding and portrait business. For more information about Thomas Maddi Photography, visit his website at www.thomasmaddi. com.

In 2003, I had come out of retirement as a Special Agent, Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) to augment that service following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In that regard, in 2003, I was sent to Guam to assist the NCIS Resident Agency located there. Some of you, no doubt, who are veterans, are aware that there is a U.S. Naval Base at Andersen Air Force Base on Guam. Before I left for Guam, I did a little bit of research on the island since I had never been there before. I learned that Guam had been attacked and seized by Japanese forces on Dec. 8, 1941, and that a Navy Radioman First Class (E-6), and ve other sailors had decided to ee into the surrounding jungle rather than become Japanese prisoners of war. The radioman was George Ray Tweed, and of the sailors who took to the jungle, all but Tweed were captured and beheaded by the Japanese. With the help of the locals and a remote cave, Tweed was able to evade capture until July 10, 1944, when he was rescued by a U.S. Navy destroyer. The ship was part of advance U.S. forces offshore prior to the liberation of Guam from the Japanese. From his hideout on a cliff overlooking the ocean, Tweed, who was pro cient in Morse code, signaled the ship by ashing light and they sent in a motor whale boat during the night to rescue him. This intrigued me, and fortunately, soon after my arrival on the island, I found Tweeds book, Robinson Crusoe USN, at a bookstore. As I read the book, I was very pleased to nd in it a rough map of the general location of his cave, drawn by Tweed. I was determined to nd that cave. From studying the map, I was able to gure out that the cave was high up on a cliff overlooking the ocean, and that it was on land currently occupied by the Naval Computer and Transmitter Site, and NASA has satellite tracking facilities nearby. As I was on the verge of my 61st birthday, I was a little reluctant to enter the remote jungle terrain alone, so I mentioned my plan to another NCIS agent. He said he might be able to go with me, but as it turned out, it was Easter Sunday and the agent went to church. I was anxious to get underway early to beat as much of the hot, tropical heat as I could. I did not want to wait and so set out on my own. I left at 10 a.m., later than I had planned, and picked up a pair of cotton garden gloves and some Off mosquito spray at the local K-Mart. I wore a web belt with a machete and a one quart canteen lled with water. I was wearing a knit short sleeved shirt, denim trousers, and rubber walking shoes, and had a small rst aid kit in my pocket. I left my cell phone behind as I gured it wouldnt work in that remote area. I arrived at the Navy Transmitter Site at noon, and checked in with the sailor on watch at the quarterdeck. I told him of my intentions and he told me in so many words that he didnt think it was a good idea as the cave was in a very remote and isolated area, up high on a cliff. He did say it wasnt that dif cult to climb to, but he didnt think going alone was a good idea. I told him I was in good health and gured I could do it with no problem. The sailor then told me hed make a deal with me. I am on watch until 1800 (6 p.m.), you check back in with me when you come out, and if you dont, Im going to send someone in to look for you. I liked that idea, and told him he had himself a deal. Off I went. In the interest of saving time and words, I will not go into all the details of my expedition, suf ce it to say that I was lucky to come out alive. It was a long and dif cult walk through the jungle in sti ing heat, I was immediately perspiring heavily, and although I tried to ration my water intake, that little quart canteen was empty before I reached the base of the cliff. By the time I got up near Tweeds cave, I was severely dehydrated and dizzy. I had my camera with me, but by that time my thoughts were on how I was going to get out of there and I never took a single picture of the cave. I did take a few pictures on the way, and will try to nd one to include with this article. I struggled through the jungle on my way out and when I found the trail leading out, I was so tired I just laid down on it and rested. The return trip was up the very steep trail, and I could not go far without getting faint. My clothes were soaking wet with sweat, and I only made it out by going short distances at a time, always laying down in shady spots on the trail to catch my breath and build up my stamina. I kept thinking about how if I passed out, the rescuers could nd me on the trail. Somehow, I finally made it out to my car. I got in and turned the air conditioner wide open on my face. When I got back to the quarterdeck at about 5 p.m. to check out, as I staggered in, the sailor was shaking his head, and said, I told you so. I could barely speak but asked for water and he directed me to the water fountain. I got back to my room and took a very good cold shower best shower I ever took! I certainly had a very good understanding as to why the Japanese never were able to nd Tweed and his remote cave! Also, if you are interested in such things, I will highly recommend that you go to amazon. com or other web site and get yourself a copy of Tweeds book, Robinson Crusoe USN. I went to church that Easter evening and thanked the Almighty for letting me get to Tweeds Cave and bringing me out safely. The congregation sang The Old Rugged Cross, and I was so thankful to be alive!

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com -Janet By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, May 10 The party circuit has slowed, there are fewer lights burning into the night at the Capitol and the traf c is (a little bit) better. And with the Legislature heading out of town after the two-month sessions largely successful conclusion, news in Tallahassee has slowed to a trickle. Not that theres nothing going on in the world of politics and government. The Florida Supreme Court heard the latest legal spat growing out of the Fair Districts amendments. In the farthest northwestern corner of the state a few hours drive from the Capitol candidates in the House District 2 special election are vying for the seat held by the late Rep. Clay Ford, who died in March. And a former governor continues to make noises that lead many to speculate that he will run for his old job with a different label and a different outlook. But things have quieted down for the time being. And aside from the scribes of the Tallahassee press corps, there arent too many complaints about that. THE COURTS KEEP HOPPING It was a busy week for the courts, starting Monday with a ruling by an administrative law judge that horse barrel racing shouldnt have been approved by a state agency for wagering in Florida. The issue stems from a decision by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering, to approve a license in October 2011 for Gretna Racing, in Gadsden County, to run the contests. But Division of Administrative Hearings Judge John Van Laningham said that because the Legislature has not approved barrel racing as a form of pari-mutuel horse racing, the license violated state law. The Divisions issuance of an operating license to Gretna Racing unmistakably implemented and unambiguously communicated a significant new policy, which is that (barrel match racing) is a licensable pari-mutuel wagering activity, Division of Administrative Hearings Judge John Van Laningham wrote in an order signed Monday. Wesley Cox, chairman of the North Florida Horsemens Association, which races horses at Gretna, said that only technical changes will be needed to acquire future licenses. Meanwhile, a threejudge federal panel said Florida cant have its own rules restricting business with Cuba. That ruling upheld a preliminary injunction barring the state from enforcing additional restrictions approved in 2012 on business with Cuba. Writing for the threejudge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Stanley Marcus said the state had overstepped its authority. The Florida legislation con icts with U.S. law, which Marcus said is already sending a message to Cuba. When the State of Florida promulgated the Cuba Amendment, it plainly was not operating in an area where the federal government has been asleep at the switch, Marcus wrote. The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments on two cases including one on whether lawmakers can face another lawsuit over the state Senate districts drawn in 2012, and one on an infamous murder. The rst case involved the Fair Districts amendments aimed at stopping political gerrymandering. The Supreme Court upheld a second draft of the Senate map in 2012, but a coalition of citizens and voting-rights groups want to gather more evidence and sue again. Lawmakers and some justices are worried that allowing that will drag out the process of settling maps with repeated lawsuits. This just never ends, said Chief Justice Ricky Polston, who could just as easily be speaking about what the battle over the states political boundaries. Meanwhile, nearly nine years after the grisly discovery of six bodies in a central Florida home, an attorney for one of the convicted murderers told the court that a mistrial should have been sought in the case. Christopher Anderson, an appellate attorney for Death Row inmate Troy Victorino, told the Florida Supreme Court that another defendant in what became known as the Xbox murders refused to be cross-examined while testifying during the trial. But justices seemed skeptical. Justice Peggy Quince scoffed at the suggestion that Victorino might have only gone to the Deltona home with the intent to rough people up and get belongings he thought were there. So he went in to rough up people with a baseball bat? she asked. SPEAKING OF HORSE RACES Perhaps no Florida politician has evolved over the last few years as much as former Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican turned independent turned Democrat. And Crist, now a potential candidate for his old job in 2014, appears to be following President Barack Obamas famous evolution on gay marriage. In a message posted on his Facebook page, Crist described as great news a decision by Delaware of cials to become the 11th state to allow same-sex marriage. I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here, Crist said in the message, initially reported by the political site SaintPetersblog. Crist, of course, had already signed a petition supporting a 2008 ballot initiative that put a ban on same-sex marriage in the state Constitution. Meanwhile, the man Crist might try to bookend, Gov. Rick Scott, was busy touting the decision by the Hertz Corporation to relocate from Park Ridge, N.J., to Estero in Lee County. State, local and utility performancebased incentives start around $19 million for the project, but could hit $84 million in all. Every project like this weve got to get a return on investment, its no different than a return for shareholders, Ive got to get a return for the taxpayers, Scott said on CNBCs Squawk Box. The bene t for Florida? A $60 million headquarters, 700 high-paying jobs and a boost to Scotts drive to beat Texas as the most business-friendly state in the nation. The Hertz package includes: $3.4 million a year, for up to 20 years, through the Capital Investment Tax Credit. $945,000, Quick Response Training program, reimbursement for training costs. $7 million, Quick Action Closing fund, paid out based on specific performance-based criteria. $3 million, Quali ed Target Industry Tax Refund, once the company meets job and salary criteria. $4.6 million, Lee County incentives. Enterprise Florida estimates the local incentives could top $5 million. $125,000 a year, for four years, through an economic development rate reduction from Florida Power & Light Co. A slightly more overtly political question for Scott is who will serve as lieutenant governor after Jennifer Carroll resigned earlier this year. Scott said he would consider the question after the session, and he told WFLA in an interview broadcast Friday that he still hasnt made up his mind. And he said creating one new job wasnt all he w as considering. Im going to find somebody that can do a great job and help make sure that were the number one state for job creation and the number one state to get an education, Scott said. ALL HE EVER GETS IS BILLS Scott was also beginning to consider a slate of bills that the Legislature began sending him, including the $74.5 billion budget (SB 1500), elections bill (HB 7013) and a manufacturing tax cut measure that was one of Scotts top priorities (HB 7007). Scott has tipped his hands on very few bills this year, but hes almost certain to sign the elections and tax-cut bill. The question is what he might ax from the budget using his lineitem veto pen. But he could target a 3 percent boost in tuition at the states colleges and universities. Tuition in our state has gone up close to 70 percent over the last ve years, Scott told WFLA. Im very concerned about tuition increases. STORY OF THE WEEK: Rental car company Hertz announces it will move its headquarters to Florida. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: I hope everybody rents more Hertz cars so we can add more jobs in Florida.--Gov. Rick Scott, on the rental giant moving its headquarters to the stateWEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Courts get busy as lawmakers leaveBy DAVID WHITE Is a bottle of wine ever really worth $100? This is a question Im regularly asked by friends who arent obsessed with wine. My answer is always the same. Of course, I begin. For starters, theres supply and demand bottles sell for what the market says theyre worth. But to your real question, I continue, no one is dropping that sort of money simply because a wine tastes so good. On those special occasions when you splurge whether for a $25 bottle, a $50 bottle, or even something that costs $100 or more youre hoping for something beyond deliciousness. Youre hoping for a wine that makes you think. Regardless of a wines price tag, this answer helps explain how wine enthusiasts approach wine. Those of us who obsess over what we drink arent just looking for something tasty; were looking for an experience. Whether a bottle costs $15 or $150, were hoping for something great. And a great wine makes you think. This concept was made clearer last month while listening to Abe Schoener, an iconoclastic California winemaker, deliver a lecture in Washington, DC. Until 1998, Schoener was a professor of ancient Greek philosophy at St. Johns College in Maryland. That year, he headed to the Bay Area for a sabbatical and met John Kongsgaard, a Napa Valley vintner who was quickly gaining a reputation for making interesting wines. Kongsgaards children were interested in St. Johns, so the two men linked up. They quickly hit it off. Even though Schoener didnt plan on staying in Northern California, he soon became Kongsgaards protg. Fast-forward 15 years, and Schoener is still in California. He makes wine as if hes still a philosophy professor, now teaching students about the limits and possibilities of wine. Like a vinous Socrates, Schoener explores wine by constantly questioning established conventions. Unsurprisingly, the results bottled as the Scholium Project are extremely unusual. The name is derived from the Greek word for school or scholar, so quite literally, the wines are a scholarly endeavor. Some are hits; some are misses. All make you think. Thanks to the wines and a captivating personality Schoener has developed somewhat of a cult following. So hes touring the country on a sold-out lecture series. In Washington, Schoener asked attendees to ponder several oil paintings from the National Gallery of Art as he discussed precision and transparency in winemaking. That Schoeners lecture would spark a dialogue about the purpose of wine isnt surprising. Nor is such a dialogue unusual. Consider the wisdom of legendary winemaker Jacques Lardire, who recently retired after 42 years with Maison Louis Jadot in Burgundy. When you drink wine, you must realize you are drinking something more than wine, Lardire explained to a recent gathering of oenophiles in New York City. Its a very meditative beverage. That meditative element is what inspires and fascinates wine enthusiasts. Obviously, a delicious wine doesnt have to make you think. Inexpensive New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Provenal Ros, and reasonably priced Argentine Malbec are just some examples of wines that are typically consumed thoughtlessly. And there are many unappetizing wines that demand contemplation. For my palate, some skin-fermented whites and purposefully oxidized wines fit this bill. So do a few of Abe Schoeners projects. Great wines are both delicious and thought-provoking. That combination is what wine enthusiasts seek, regardless of price. One might compare this pursuit to music. Itd be hard to contend that listening to a song is worth much more than a dollar iTunes highest priced songs are $1.29. But virtually everyone is willing to pay a premium to see his favorite artist perform live. Bruce Springsteens newest album, Wrecking Ball, can be purchased for $13; tickets during his recent tour were priced at $98 each. At Springsteen concerts, attendees undoubtedly get their moneys worth. Next time you pull a cork, think about what youre drinking. Perhaps youll discover a great wine.

A campfire to cook food or keep warm is an asset at any campground, and in the evening hours, a re can provide a sense of security against inquisitive forest animals. A burning re can also illuminate a campsite, which makes maneuvering around the site easier. Although there are many bene ts to having a camp re, its important to note that res, especially in very dry conditions, can be dangerous. It is essential to check a particular campsite or parks posting about drought conditions to avoid an accident. In the wrong conditions, a cozy re for toasting marshmallows can grow into an out-of-control wild re in a matter of seconds. STARTING A FIRE When you are ready to start a re it is important to keep safety in mind. Pick a safe spot to light the re. Many camp- res have re rings for campers to use. If you are selecting a re location on your own, choose an area away from brush or other easily ignitable material. Make a ring with large rocks to keep the re from spreading. Keep the re several feet away from your tent. Gather materials during the day so you will not be scrambling for them after dark. You will need both tinder and kindling to light a re and keep it roaring. Tinder is any small, highly ammable material that can light and burn quickly. Fibrous plant material, small twigs and newspaper make good tinder. Kindling is small pieces of wood that will burn long enough to catch larger logs of wood on re. Finally, you will need a few logs of thicker wood that will sustain the re. Have plenty of material on hand to be able to continue the re, or you may nd yourself foraging in the darkness when the re goes out. Create a teepee or X pattern for a well-burning re. Layer your tinder as the rst level of the re. Stack a few pieces of kindling on top of the tinder in an X or teepee shape. Ensure there is enough air to move freely through the re to make ignition easier. Light the tinder from four compass points to get it all to light. Slowly blow air into the re to allow it to burn hot enough to catch the kindling. Continue to add small pieces of kindling until you have a nicely sized fire. Then you can add larger pieces of dry wood for a big blaze. Do not use accelerants when starting a re or keeping it going. Avoid the use of chemicals, including lighter fluid and other accelerants in your camp re. Do not use chemically treated paper or plastic materials in kindling, as they can produce noxious fumes and smoke. Accelerants can cause the fire to burn out of control. Keep the re contained to what you can manage, and always keep a watchful eye on the re. MAINTAINING THE FIRE You may need to ddle with the re from time to time to v ent it and allow for equal burning. Having an ample amount of wood on hand will enable you to feed the re easily. Its much easier to keep a fire going than start from scratch once it has burned out, especially in the dark. Be mindful of embers that drift in windy conditions. Also, do not put your face or body directly over a re. If the wood pops, you could be burned. Children should be carefully supervised when around a camp re. EXTINGUISHING THE FIRE After building your camp re, completely put it out when you are done. Thousands of acres of wilderness are burnt from carelessness with regard to camp res. Put out the fire a half hour to an hour before you plan to leave the campground. There should be mostly ash and few chunks of coal left if you have planned accordingly and started to wind down the re before extinguishing it. Use a stick to stir up the wood and ash and distribute the burning coals and embers. This is to extinguish any remaining flames as much as you can. Pour water over the hot ashes to drown all embers. Its not just the red embers you have to worry about. Pour water until all the hissing sounds stop. Avoid standing directly above the re when you pour the water because it will generate a lot of steam and smoke. If you do not have water on hand, mix dirt or sand with the embers to smother the ames. Continue to do so until the material is cool. Stir the ashes again with a shovel or stick to further ensure the re is not still burning. Make sure everything is wet and cold to the touch before you leave the campsite. If the re area is too hot to the touch, its too hot to leave it because a re may reignite. Once you feel that everything is cool, you can scoop the coals and ash into a bag and carry it out of the woods for disposal. Knowing how to safely light, maintain and extinguish a re is an essential component of safe camping.How to safely light and extinguish a camp re PHOTO BY METROGRAPHICS

Page 12B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, May 16, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy HERB DONALDSONSpecial to The NewsImagine if a slew of lmmakers, playwrights, art enthusiasts, actors, and screenwriters abandoned their concrete jungles for a more natural setting, where all took part in a festival meant to jumpstart the creative energies of a small southern county. Scene in Wakulla, a three-day event of workshops, film-screenings, play readings, and forums is the start of something like that. Or, at least, it can be. A rst time endeavor for the Palaver Tree Theater, and sponsored by Best Western Plus Wakulla Inns & Suites, Scene in Wakulla promises to be unlike anything the county has seen since Tarzan and Creature from the Black Lagoon came to town. The festivities begin Thursday, June 20 with an opening night party in the downstairs and courtyard areas of Wakullas Best Western Plus. Workshops, discussions, and readings begin the next day, continuing through Saturday, June 22. Writer and lmmaker, Karamu Kush will work with a limited number of aspiring lmmakers from Wakulla and abroad in an effort to help develop their craft. Kushs lm, Salvation Road, claimed the Directors Guild of America Jury Prize, the Caucus Foundation Gold Circle Award, and was later acquired by HBO, making its television debut on the network in 2012. His award-winning work has been featured at Cannes, Sundance, Hamptons, Tribecca, and Los Angeles film fests. Hes also a teaching Professor at New York Film Academy at Universal Studios in Hollywood, and Professor-Lecturer on the Theatre Arts faculty at Howard University. For those who desire to be in front of the camera instead of holding it, veteran actor and master teacher John DAquino will teach his On-Camera Performance workshop. An FSU alumni, John was discovered by Sam Weisbord, President of the William Morris Agency, and hired as one of the leads in the ABC/Disney series, Wildside. Most know him from his recurring roles on numerous television series, such as Hannah Montana, CSI, JAG, Cory in the House, Third Rock from the Sun, and Seinfeld. Hes also a consultant for the Disney Channel. A bit of local avor is added to the mix with the Alive OnStage Workshop taught by director Kevin Carr, along with cast members from the Canopy Roads production of Raisin in the Sun, fresh from their performances at the Monticello Opera House, and most recently, the Southside Arts Complex, in Tallahassee. Its all about stories and developing techniques those innate abilities that allow one to tell and reveal in such a way that something within the mind of the viewer is awakened, leading to deeper re ection and thought. Nothing does this better than the true-life story of Agnes Furey. Some may remember her from an article printed in the Tallahassee Democrat over a year ago when she sat with a group of inmates in the Wakulla County Jail facility. Her story could be seen as one of horror. Instead it over ows with hope. Agnes daughter and grandson were murdered by a man her daughter was trying to help in the late 1990s. Agnes reached out to the perpetrator in the hopes of nding answers and, eventually, closure. But, like most of lifes dramas, her narrative took a different turn, which included intense correspondence over a number of years with Leonard Scovens, the man convicted for the crime. Later, a book titled Wild owers in the Median, which they wrote together, was published. Wild owers has been adapted into a play, the reading of which is included in the Scene lineup. Scenes play readings and panel discussions are free and will take place in different areas of the county. There is a charge for the workshops. Although the seats are limited, participants can receive a discount on all classes until May 25, along with discounts for stay at Wakullas Best Western Plus. As always, sponsorship and donations are encouraged.
