Bob Danzey was first to speak and encouraged the board not to support the lowering of the threshold for citizen ballot referendum petitions from 30 percent to 10. Danzey pegged the issue as local maneuvering and said that this is probably not how our system is supposed to work. County Commissioner Howard Kessler made the proposal at a time when the threshold will have to be met if the petition by the countys newly formed Wetlands Alliance wants to get a referendum item put on the ballot to allow citizens to vote on whether or not to keep the countys wetlands ordinance. As for that petition, Eugene Watkins of Crawfordville got up to announce the launching of the initiative in the coming week. I want the citizens of the county to know that they will be receiving a knock at the door and a volunteer will be explaining to them why their property rights, property values and the quality of their water will be impacted by four members of this board of county commissioners, he said. We also want to explain why state regulations are not redundant as weve been told by the county commission. When presenting the item later in the meeting, Kessler made it clear that his proposal would not affect the current wetlands issue. This is for the future, he said. Thirty percent puts a large burden on the citizens. They have the right under a charter government to make petitions and this just sets the bar too high. Chairman Randy Merritt brought up the fact that, if the threshold were set at 10 percent, Wakulla would need 1,800 signatures to get a referendum. In Alachua County it would take 11,000, in Brevard it would take 18,000, in Charlotte 11,000 so I dont think its a real apples to apples comparison, he said. Merritt also brought up recent literature that was added to the state constitution about the illegality of con ning pregnant pigs in a space that doesnt allow them to turn around a new law that he clearly didnt agree with. This is why the bar is set so high, he said. Commissioner Richard Harden said that Kessler was on the board back when the charter was established. Turn to Page 2A By BETH ODONNELLAssistant SuperintendentWakulla High Schools Senior Class of 2013 outscored their counterparts in Florida on the American College Test (ACT) in all areas tested: English, mathematics, reading, science, and the composite score. This is one of the common tests used for college entrance quali cations, including meeting requirements to take dual enrollment college courses while still in high school. On the ACT, WHS students averaged 19.0 in English (state 18.7). In mathematics, WHS was at 19.9 (state 19.7). WHS reading scores averaged 20.9 (state 20.4). WHS science scores came in at 19.8 (state 19.1). The overall composite score for WHS graduates was 20.0 (state 19.6). The number of WHS seniors taking the ACT has increased over the past three years from 129 students in 2010 to 148 seniors in 2013. More participation is partly due to WHS offering the ACT on the WHS campus twice a year instead of students having to drive to Tallahassee. Students are encouraged to take the ACT and/or the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) in order to broaden their options for after high school. We are striving to meet the needs of our students and make sure they are prepared for many different career pathways after high school. It is validating to see our students consistently exceed the state averages on national tests such as the ACT, stated Superintendent Bobby Pearce.Turn to Page 15AWakulla High grads exceed state in ACT scores By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net In the next couple of weeks, the Tourist Development Council will be looking to make a decision as to who they would like their director to be. At the TDCs Aug. 15 meeting, each member was given a packet of the 14 resumes that were submitted the intention being that they look them over and reconvene on Aug 20 to decide on up to five to pursue further. With the pot narrowed down, the council plans to hold and be done with interviews by Aug. 29 and to make a selection on the morning of Sept. 3. The TDC hopes to have a recommendation in place in time for the Sept. 9 commission meeting where they will have to present their preference to county commissioners to be approved before of cial hiring may take place. If all goes according to plan, the TDC will then end its three-month stint of functioning without a director and not all too soon as the council was visited by Wakulla Springs Park Specialist Jeff Hugo asking for their help. Hugo, who is the chairperson and secretary of the committee that puts together Wild About Wakulla Week, said that he doesnt know if the event will happen this year as an empty spot in leadership has presented itself. Turn to Page 3A B a c k t o s c h o o l Back to school Classes resumed at Wakullas Public Schools on Thursday, Aug. 15. These Riversink Elementary students were leaving school on the rst day. Superintendent of Schools Bobby Pearce reported that there were no major problems beyond the typical transportation problems. He called it a pleasant start to the year. Pearce did note that the district is still experiencing a decline in enrollment, but that the numbers are above what his of ce had anticipated. Hopefully, this is the year we begin to turn the other direction with enrollment numbers, Pearce said. More photos of the rst day of school on Page 15A.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net Members of the sheriffs department gathered on Friday, Aug. 16, to take part in a barbecue cookoff, the entries of which were judged by County Commissioner Ralph Thomas, Tax Collector Cheryll Olah and Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond. The maintenance area of the sheriffs grounds played host to six teams, each a different department of the of ce. Teams manned a hot smoking grill, cooking their rendition of a gourmet burger while co-workers and some members of the community gathered under the nearby pavilion. Monday through Thursday, employees have the option of grabbing lunch from the cafeteria, but on Fridays only breakfast is available. With that in mind, the of ce will hold occasional Friday afternoon lunch gatherings usually a sh fry every now and then, explained Sheriff Charlie Creel. Its just something to bring everyone together for fellowship and its my way of saying thanks for all of their hard work, said Creel. These guys are all co-workers, yet because of different shifts, sometimes they dont get to interact or see each other. Its a good morale booster, he said, and one that doesnt use any of the taxpayers money. Each team supplied their own materials and the production fed everyone who attended with plenty leftover. Teams submitted burgers and sides, if they chose, and were judged in categories of overall best, presentation, taste and side. The overall winner was the corrections department team led by Major Jared Miller. Second place went to Sgt. Dale Evans training team and third went to the administration department team led by Undersheriff Trey Morrison. The winner of both the presentation and taste categories was Evans team and the winner of best side dish was Deputy Lisa Hummel of the corrections team for her macaroni and cheese. The overall winner, the corrections team, received a trophy and bragging rights. From Page 1AI wanted to learn how the 30 percent got in there, he said. So I pulled the minutes from the meeting from Monday, July 21 of 2008. Harden read the minutes aloud that stated that then commissioner Maxie Lawhon made the motion to raise the percentage from 15 to 30. The motion was seconded by Kessler and carried unanimously with a 5-0 vote. Commissioner Kessler was the only commissioner on this board that was there at the time, so effectively, this is his rule. Harden said that he made it clear as to where he was on the wetlands issue when he ran for his seat as commissioner and that the people, by a good margin, allowed me to be where I am today. So, in several ways said Harden, the citizens have voted on the subject and made it clear where their vote would be. Commissioner Ralph Thomas contended that Wakullas percentage is at the level it is because of its size and that the citizens were the ones that approved it in 2008 when the charter was formed. Out of the 20 counties that have a charter in the state, ours is the smallest the next largest is twice our size, he said. We have different things to think about than the large metropolitan areas. The citizens voted for this as it stands. We havent seen a problem or a failure or a need for this. Thomas then offered his version of a compromise by noting that, in the charter, there is a provision stating that a committee of 15 citizens must review the charter before 2015. Thomas proposed that Kesslers motion be amended to include the formation of the committee rather than taking the steps then and there to lower the threshold. When asked by Merritt whether he wanted to take up the offer, Kessler replied that hed rather his motion stand as presented. Thomas then retracted his second and the item died for lack of a second. Thomas went on to propose the moving forward with forming a charter review committee, a motion that was seconded by Commissioner Jerry Moore. However, after hearing concern from Merritt as well as citizens to be heard, Thomas repealed his motion, saying that he would bring it back as an of cial agenda item. As the meeting was coming to a close, as is custom, commissioners gave closing remarks, during which Merritt threw in one more wetlands curveball. He asked the board to seriously consider going back to his original proposal referring to the item that had passed 4-1 at their June 17 meeting that allowed variance inside the countys buffer zone. Merritt said that he thought the Wetlands Alliance efforts had enough juice to get this thing on the referendum and if it passes its going to be just like this pig law, he said. There wont be anything we can do about it, well be stuck with it from here until the end of time. Merritt said he was trying to compromise as we all have something to lose on this issue. He explained that if it were between having the current ordinance and having nothing, then he would choose nothing because of property rights issues, but that there are serious repercussions to think about if the ordinance repeal were to go through, then after a lapse of time, it was reinstated. Its just something to think about, he said. However, board members did not seem willing to change their stance and the lack of interest led Merritt to say hed drop the issue and things would continue. As it is, the countys wetlands ordinance is still at risk of being deleted unless the Wetlands Alliance petition efforts are successful.Board rejects lower thresholdPHOTOS BY AMANDA MAYORSheriff Charlie Creel shakes the hand of Deputy Lisa Hummel who won the award for best side dish.

From Page 1A Theres just not enough hours in the day, said Hugo of the time he has available between his own job and other obligations to put forth what needs to be done for Wild About Wakulla. Hugo emphasized that the annual event is about showcasing the county. It just seems to meld with what the function of the TDC is, said Hugo. So Im asking for your help. He suggested that perhaps the council task the new director with becoming the spearhead of the project and that they might be the person to coordinate and lead the efforts. Hugo explained that if he couldnt nd new leadership by the committees next meeting, efforts for a Wild About Wakulla for the year 2014 would die then and there. In response, the council said they could not necessarily speak for the new, unknown director and expressed concerns that the part time position may not allow them suf cient time to take on such a task. However a few members offered to attend the upcoming meeting to offer any assistance that they could. Other happenings at the meeting included Commissioner Ralph Thomas update that the YMCA has pulled out of Wakullas community center efforts. Thomas reiterated that he was never exactly for the YMCA establishing itself in the county in the rst place and that he was optimistic for what the center could still become. We need to take the resources we have in the county and bring them under one roof, he said. The council also discussed grant monies and expenditures. Some of which was spent recently on a two-page spread in the 2014 Travel Guide to Florida magazine, which showcases Wakullas attractions. In addition, three bidders have answered the TDCs destination marketing system RFP with large differences in bid amounts. But questions were raised as to eligibility of submissions as only one of the three contained everything the council asked for. TDC Chairman David Moody expressed the need to move the project forward as efforts for obtaining a new system have been going on for over a year.Tourism Board moves closer to hiring a new director NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARINGThe Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners will hold a Public Hearing on September 3, 2013 at 6:01 p.m. in the Commission Chambers, 29 Arran Rd., Crawfordville, FL 32327 to Consider Adopting the FY2013/2014 Tentative Budget & Tentative Millage Rate.

He was good, kind and loving husband, stepfather, granddaddy, great-granddad, brother and friend to everyone. We are blessed to have so many caring friends, family and neighbors. Gloria Cox and family Cox family expresses appreciationEditor, The News: I wish to commend commissioner Ralph Thomas for emphasizing the importance of research in informing his position on repealing the Wakulla County Wetlands Ordinance. (Vote came after research by Ralph Thomas, Opinion Page, July 31.) I was impressed by the seemingly persuasive arguments he marshaled based on his research. It made me wonder perhaps there really is no need for a local ordinance if we are truly duplicating what is already adequately addressed by state and federal governments. I was inspired to engage in my own research. Now, as Paul Harvey used to say on his radio show, for the rest of story. Thomas makes reference to the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Koontz vs. St. Johns River Water Management District case, implying that it had relevance for those of us who live in Wakulla County. I took the time to read the entire Supreme Court ruling which, trust me, was not exciting reading. The first thing that struck me was the obvious: this was not a case of a local ordinance, but one involving the St. Johns Water Management District. Secondly, Koontz was denied a permit, not because of the actual impacts of his proposed development but because he and the Water Management District could not agree on appropriate mitigation. Thirdly, this case originated way back in 1994. Since then Florida has instituted a Uniform Mitigation Assessment Method which applies to all counties and water management districts and leaves mitigation decisions, when allowed by counties, up to the state agencies. Thus, if Wakulla County had an ordinance which permitted mitigation (which it does not have to do), any mitigation would not be up to the county. Lastly, in the body of the decision, the Supreme Court reaf rmed the right of local governing entities to determine the nature of appropriate development and that the greater public good is not trumped by individual property rights. Pursuing this further, I read a 2010 article in the Florida Bar Journal entitled Planning and Permitting to Protect Wetlands: The Different Roles and Powers of State and Local Government. This article emphasized that Permitting is not planning, and that (state) permitting programsdo not plan for future land developmental and do not use and identify and implement longrange goals, objectives and policies based on a comprehensive assessment of natural resources in a particular area in light of future growth projections and community needs and desires. In other words, local control, oversight and vision is essential. They conclude that local government prohibitions on wetland development through sound planning play a critical role in ensuring that some of the most important wetland systems remain protected. In light of Thomas view that state and federal laws will protect the Wakulla County environment and citizenry, the most stunning and important information I discovered came from a recent (June 14, 2013) article in the Tampa Bay Times which reported on the ring of four DEP lawyers. These lawyers had all received stellar job reviews in recent years. One had won a major environmental victory in the Supreme Court in 2009 and another (Charles Byrd) was red ve months after successfully prosecuting a Marion County couple who had illegally filled in wetlands by an aquatic preserve along the Rainbow River. While the DEP denied that the rings were related to successful prosecutions or disagreements the lawyers had with the current DEP administrators, those fired had a different view. Byrd stated that DEP Deputy Secretary, Jeff Littlejohn doesnt like enforcement. In fact, the DEPs own statistics show that DEP attorneys handled 2,289 enforcement cases in 2010, a number which dropped to 799 in 2012 and, as of the end of May, 2013, only 145 new cases were led this year. That last number projects to a total of 348 for this year. This means that the DEP is prosecuting 15 percent of the number of cases it was doing just three years ago. Byrd attributed the precipitous decline to a corresponding decline in inspectors looking for violations and administrative resistance to prosecute. The article quotes Byrd as saying, Before, when people failed to get permits for lling in wetlands or other activities, the agency went after them Now the approach is to grant them an after-thefact permit and let it slide. Hardly reassuring for the future of Florida. Thanks to Thomas example I have, through my own research, become a better informed citizen. However, my conclusions differ. I found that the recent Supreme Court case to not be relevant to a local Wakulla County ordinance because the county cannot control mitigation, that the principle of local oversight and control of environmental issues to be a cornerstone of responsible comprehensive planning, and that it is well established in law and precedence that individual property rights do not trump the greater good of the community and vulnerable environments. It also became abundantly clear to me that there is a huge gap in this state between laws, rules and enforcement. If we think that the DEP or the NWF Water Management District will protect our vital, unique environment I fear that we are kidding ourselves and effectively abandoning our responsibilities to our community, neighbors and children. I am sure that Thomas and the other commissioners have faith in the wisdom of our citizens, and I urge them to support a county referendum to determine the will of the people on this important issue. James Hennessey Crawfordville Editor, The News:The Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce works hard to convince our countys citizens to shop locally and not always go up the road to Tallahassee. My recent experience of shopping locally was a positive reinforcer of that philosophy. Upon deciding that I needed a new lawn tractor, I stopped by Three Y Outdoor Equipment to investigate the options. Skip Young greeted me with a smile, taking the time to listen to my concerns and ask questions about how I planned on using the equipment. Then he showed me the options he thought would best suit my needs and budget. Together we arrived at a great choice. Im very pleased with the equipment I purchased, and especially the knowledgeable service. What turned out to be the one of the best things about the transaction was that when I later compared prices of comparable products at the big box stores in Tallahassee, 3Ys prices were very competitive. Ill continue to shop locally for great products and services while saving the time and money it takes to travel to Tallahassee. Mike Eakin Purple Frog LLCEditor, The News: Re: the Sheriffs Report of Aug. 8 edition. I was shocked and saddened to read of the poor dog who was left chained by humans with no food or water and left to die a slow death. How incredibly sadistic and careless is that? If it were legally possible, it would be justice well served to do the same to the perpetrators! Just stake them out in the hot sun and rain and give them a feel of what that dog went through! The cruelty and careless nature of human beings never ceases to amaze me! My wife and I have adopted six dogs from shelters. Wed rescue more if we could afford it. Potential dog owners, please understand that the cute little pup that you buy or adopt will one day become an old, slow, and medically expensive dog. Your responsibility does not end when the cute wears off. Think wisely before owning a dog or any pet. I sincerely hope that our new sheriff, his staff and our local court system will follow up fully on this incident. Thank you! We enjoy your paper immensely! Bill Catalina & Family Crawfordville, Editor, The News: On the 20th of July a storm rolled thru Medart. A bolt of lightning struck the waterline on Casora Drive. Our water was completely gone. The water crew from Sopchoppy jumped to x the line even before the rain stopped. They worked until 3:30 a.m. and then returned Sunday and worked until 7 p.m. It took them hours just to nd were the lightning struck. Once found they repaired it and our water was restored. The residents of Casora Drive greatly appreciated the hard work and dedication of; Leonard Tartt, Mike Porter, Dale Rushton and Derrick Allen. Thanks again, The Richardson Family CrawfordvilleBy RITA HANEY ADHD is having a Ferrari brain with bicycle brakes, says Dr. Edward Holloway speaking at the Cape Cod Institute located on the Cape Cod National Seashore. Speaking before a room full of educators, psychologists and counselors about his unique strength based approach to ADHD. The of cial de nition of Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral disorder which typically begins in childhood and may last into adulthood, and is characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention and hyperactivity resulting in functional impairment in academic, family and social settings. A different view of ADHD proposed by Dr. Holloway is ADHD is a collection of traits. The difference, according to Dr. Holloway, is Its very debasing to be told you have a disorder, Medical school is all about pathology and we (doctors) are trained to look for defects and the emphasis is always on whats missing. Its all about misery and mental disease. Changing the way the ADHD traits are explained to patients is the beginning in new view of the ADHD diagnoses, a diagnosis which is often treated with powerful medications. Instead Dr. Holloway says to his patients, Congratulations! You have a Ferrari brain with bicycle brakes. This positive approach at the beginning changes the way patients and families begin to process the diagnoses to a position of strength. Dr. Holloway urges professionals in the health care eld to embrace a model that celebrates the strengths. Who wants a de cit disorder when they can have hope, optimism and cheerfulness? BLESSING OR CURSE? Distractibility: One of the traits of ADHD often interfering with what a person is supposed to be doing at an assigned time and in a manner consistent with the program. Curiosity: Often interferes with the assigned program. Yet curiosity is what drives most artists, scientist and inventors, not to mention entrepreneurs. These folks often do not follow the program. Impulsivity: Another trait of ADHD is upside down creativity or, in Dr. Hallowells words, creativity is impulsivity gone good. Impulsive behavior can also interfere in a set agenda. With good brakes on the Ferrari brain quick thinking and quick acting can be a bene t to any project. Energy: Another ADHD trait. Energy is definitely not a bad thing. In fact almost everyone I know would like just a bit more. The brain in ADHD diagnoses then is top of the line. Its the brakes that need work. And kids will need to learn how to work the breaks. Raising a highly energetic and curious child is a challenge. Once your child masters the brake then according to Dr. Holloway, the sky is the limit. TIPS FOR PARENTS Exercise: Team sports and sports that require attention to body movement such as gymnastics and skateboarding; track or just plan running. Nature: The outdoors is a positive experience for any body and is good for healthy minds and spirits as well. Combine nature with exercise such as kayaking, hiking, swimming. Boredom: I love to read give me an insurance policy and my eyes glaze over. Help your child discover what he is interested in. If possible, sign your son or daughter up for a class such as art, taking great photographs, even one of the martial arts. the possibilities are endless. Boredom can be present in school. If your son or daughter is hyperactive when his/her work is done with the work and distracts others from doing the work this is not bad behavior it may be an inappropriate way to work the brakes. If grades are the problem take the time to learn and help your child discover ways to cope with things he is not interested in. This takes time. A tutor or mentor maybe a positive experience with the emphases on expanding the learning experience. Remember: Being a parent is a challenging experience. Work the brakes!Rita Haney, MSW, LCSW is a counselor in Crawfordville. She can be reached at (850) 9262039.
By RICHARD BICKFORDSpecial to The NewsGreg Bickford and his father Richard are back home after a 4,250-mile journey competing in Rally New England, a fundraising event for Camp Sunshine, a camp on Sebago Lake in Maine devoted to children with life-threatening medical conditions. The journey took them from Crawfordville to St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. Every team paid all their own expenses which included gas, food, lodging, tolls, etc. Each day of the rally the 78 teams from all over the U.S. and Canada lined up at the starting line according to the amount of money they raised for Camp Sunshine. Team Tallahassee was proud to line up in the 5th position each day of the rally. Pre-rally activities included laps on New Yorks Watkins Glen International Raceway during which each of the 78 drivers and co-drivers completed two white-knuckle laps on the track and a charity auction later that evening which raised an additional $2,000 for Camp Sunshine, the rally of cially kicked off the next morning. Day one of Rally New England had the teams lining up in downtown Ithaca, N.Y. and as each departed they were handed a clue as to where their next checkpoint. The teams then had to determine the fastest way to locate and drive to the checkpoint where they received clues for additional checkpoints that had them winding through the mountains to the day one final destination at Rutland, Vt. The checkpoints were tough to locate and many required both driver and navigator to run over a half-mile up and down hills through the woods to get a picture. It was quite exhausting! Along the way they stopped at more scenic locations including picturesque waterfalls, covered bridges (one haunted, one not!), an old fashioned country store and Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream Graveyard in Vermont. The best part of day two for all the teams was easily the visit to Camp Sunshine, the roads leading into the camp had signs made for each of the teams and as soon as we pulled in we were greeted with cheers from the volunteers and families at the camp. It was very emotional to see one little 6-year-old girl come running across the grass to leap into the arms of a participant who met the family a few months ago and by luck they were both destined to be at Camp Sunshine the same day. Team Tallahassee was disappointed to have missed receiving a third place trophy on day two, only losing by 60 seconds. Our spirits were quickly lifted though when we learned we placed third on day three of the rally, proudly accepting the trophy. Rally New England participants were extremely proud to have raised over $86,000 for Camp Sunshine. The children at the camp all have life-threatening illnesses and come to bond with other families as well as meet with doctors who specialize in each of the various rare diseases. Camp Sunshine is open to families from all over the world and has the distinction of being the only camp in the world where the entire family is invited to attend a week long session completely free of charge. Children get to meet other children with the same illness and they get to relax at a wonderful place where they hopefully can forget about their illness for a brief period. The week of the rally 40 children with DiamondBlackfan Anemia (DBA) were in attendance at Camp Sunshine. DBA is a very rare blood disorder, affecting ve to seven children per million, in which the bone marrow fails to make red blood cells. With only about 1,000 cases known worldwide the 40 families at the camp receive a tremendous amount of education, support and encouragement from the staff, volunteers, doctors and other families at the camp. Team Tallahassee would like to thank all of our friends, family and particularly the following local businesses: Ace Hardware in Crawfordville, Front Porch Florist, Gulf Coast Landscape & Sod, Gulf Coast Lumber & Supply, Luxury Cruise & Travel, and the White Elephant who all donated to Camp Sunshine on behalf of Team Tallahassee. We also want to thank our out of town sponsors, Autogeek.com, VandalEyes. net and especially The Real Deal Brazil which not only made a generous nancial donation but also provided several of their unique Real Deal Brazil hats for the charity auction, which were a big hit once again. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 Page 5A < STREET BEAT > Random, man-on-the-street interviews with Wakulla Countians.

Page 6A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy ETHEL SKIPPERI remember as a child I was always glad when the rst day of school began. I have memories of walking three miles to school. There were no school buses or family car. Many mornings we had to pump for my mother to do the weekly laundry. Some days it was rainy, cold or hot. Today things are so different. Students can choose how they want to go to school, and do nothing if they desire. One thing we did have a lot of and that was love and we were taught to respect everyone. Life itself taught us a lot of things. We are in a new day but things have not changed that much. Everyone is in a hurry. Slow down. Take time to have that prayer with your child. Tell them you love them. Most of all, show it. Love is kind, and does not act up. It respects others. Today let us examine the call to be mature in our relationship with others.

SNYDEREnjoying a casual evening at home, I reclined in my favorite easy chair reading, while the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was chatting on the telephone. I rarely pay attention to telephone conversations. After all, I only get one side of the conversation, which may be misleading at the very best. Ive been caught in that trap before with some pretty dire consequences. Im not going to get caught again. Then an odd phrase caught my attention: plastic surgery. My ears perked up and I heard my wife say, I certainly agree with that article and Im going to do some plastic surgery myself. Well, you can imagine what thoughts were racing through my head. When she hung up the telephone, I queried her about it. In my book, plastic surgery is a big step. You do support me in this plastic surgery plan, dont you? There are times to disagree with your spouse, but as a husband for over 40 years, I have never discovered that time. Forcing a smile, I nodded in the affirmative and told her she had my full support in whatever she decided. I had to admit that the time had nally come to our humble abode. Who am I to ght it? I go by this motto, He who smiles and agrees with his spouse lives to smile another day. I plan to smile until the day I die. I never really thought about plastic surgery, but perhaps my wife was right. Perhaps she could use a little face-lift. For me to get a facelift, the surgeons would need a huge construction crane. Then comes the awkward part, what do they do with my face after it was lifted? Women, more than men, are a little sensitive about their appearance. For a man, appearance means he showed up. A woman has an altogether different approach to the term appearance. Some women look in the mirror and see where some improvements could be made. For example, they see bags under their eyes that could not get through the airport carry-on luggage size requirement. Then there is the problem with their nose, which could stand a little tweaking. For all practical purposes, one of those double chins has to go. Moreover, what woman couldnt use a tummy tuck and other snippings of the esh? Believe me, I never would have brought it up, but if that makes my wife happy, then whatever it costs, we can put it on a credit card. The only problem with putting something like this on a credit card is that by the time you pay it off you need another procedure. She is worth it in my checkbook. Each day I checked the appointment calendar hanging on our refrigerator to nd out when she would be going in for the surgery. Daily I looked, but could never nd any appointment. I supposed she was sensitive about the whole thing and did not want it staring at her day after day on the appointment calendar. Whatever the reason, she had my silent support, for all that was worth. I am sure she would do the same for me. That is what marriage is all about. I decided to tuck this little bit in the back of my mind and, however it developed would be all right with me. One day this week, I went to the Slurp N Burp Caf for a quiet lunch. The issue was far from my mind as I enjoyed a delicious repast. As I nished my last cup of coffee, the waitress brought my bill and I pulled my wallet out to pay for it. In searching my wallet for a credit card I discovered, much to my double chagrin, that there were no credit cards to be found. Somehow, Id lost my credit cards. Perhaps, in the morning when I was getting dressed, they dropped out of my wallet as I was placing it in my trousers. Fortunately, I had my cell phone and called my wife. Honey, Ive lost all my credit cards. Im here at the restaurant and I cant nd any credit cards in my wallet. Do you have any idea what I did with my credit cards? I cut them all up. You did what? You said you supported my plastic surgery plan, didnt you? But, I thought... You, thought what? Oh boy. Dear reader: please disregard the rst part of this column. If you happen to read my obituary in next weeks newspaper, you will know that my lovely, vivacious, eternally youthful wife did not disregard the rst part and Im currently Resting In Pieces. I must confess that my hearing is good; it is my understanding that falls so far short. The only exercise I am really good at is jumping-to-conclusions. This is common among many people who call themselves Christians. Their hearing is good but their doing, is not up to par. The apostle James understood this truth quite well. He writes, But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves James 1:22 (KJV). It is not so much what you hear that pays dividends in life, but what you do. Rev. James L.

By BYRON PRICESpecial to The NewsThe inter denominational Seafarers Chapel at Shell Point meets every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. at the Apalachee Bay Marine Safety Support Group building, previously known as Flotilla 13 of the Coast Guard Auxillary. For much of its existence, the Chapel has been under the spiritual tutelage of retired Air Force Chaplain Frank Metcalf, and his wife, Carolyn Metcalf. Serving for almost 40 years as a source of spiritual strength, and community cohesiveness, for residents of Shell Point, and surrounding areas, the Seafarers Chapel has always been staffed by volunteers, including the speakers Jimmie Doyle, dutifully, schedules for each Sunday. The very casual services only last about 30 minutes, but everyone leaves with their spirits and friendships renewed, a small miracle each Sunday. The relaxed casual atmosphere of the chapel had even more humble beginnings. At a recent Memories Sunday, local artist Ginger Tillman presented to the Seafarers Chapel a painting of the original Chapel building. Tillman had been commissioned some 30 years ago by Maggie Lloyd, now deceased, to do the painting, little realizing their efforts would culminate in the capturing and recording of a highly valued Shell Point memory. At the formal presentation of the painting, the unof cial matriarch of Shell Point, Sherrie Alverson, received the treasure on behalf of the Chapel. Actually, the Chapel has never owned its own building. The building depicted in the donated painting is the original building housing Flotilla 13 of the Shell Point Coast Guard Auxillary. Sherrie Alversons husband, Chuck Alverson, and Ken Lloyd, Maggies husband, were very instrumental in orchestrating the rehab of the original Shell Point restau rant, located approximately where the large pavillion is now located at Shell Point Beach, to serve as the rst location of Flotilla 13. In 1974, the building was made available, rent free, by the George Taff family, dba A.B. Taff and Sons. Early on, a handful of local residents began having Chapel services at the then-new Coast Guard Auxillary Building. In 1991, the rent-free building changed hands, and the members of Flotilla 13 began to bring their dream of the Flotilla owning its own building to fruition. The county commission agreed to a 50-year lease of the property, on which the current building is located. The general contractor for the Coast Guard building, Galveston Alexander, donated several thousand dollars in labor and material; and Shell Point locals, John Edrington, Enzil Trefzger, and Chuck Alverson worked fulltime until the project was completed. Gary Bliss put in the countertops, and James Taylor donated and installed the kitchen equipment. The ladies fed the always-hungry crew, and helped with sanding and painting. The Chapel currently rents space for the Sunday service from the Apalachee Bay Marine Safety Group. Although the Seafarers Chapel doesnt own its own space, it does own the miracles worked in the lives of many individuals and families in the area, and the invaluable memories which have helped to transform an area into a community of charitable thought and deed. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 Page 7ACarrie L.

Special to The NewsThe Wakulla High School dress code policy has undergone some changes for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. The changes are largely in response to students input voiced to administrators through representatives of the Student Government. As fashion changes, WHS tries to update our policies to stay in tune with these changes and with our students needs. Below is a brief summary of some of the changes in our school dress code, but please read the dress code policy in its entirety in the 2013-2014 Student Handbook because it is the responsibility of both students and their parents to read, understand and adhere to the school dress code. Shirts, tops, blouses, and jackets must cover all aspects of the bosom, chest, back and sides with straps at least three inches wide on each shoulder. Cleavage should not be visible. Tank tops, tube tops, halters, or spaghetti straps are not permitted as a primary top. Skirts, dresses and shorts must be approximately knee length when in a standing position. All dresses must have straps at least three inches wide. No revealing shortshorts and mini-skirts. Undergarments should not be visible at any time. Tights, leotard and leggings must be covered by clothing that is approximately knee length when in a standing position. Pants should fit appropriately, without sagging, and hide all undergarments (ballers, underwear, boxers, shorts, etc.). Floridas Sagging Pants Law requires school boards to adopt dress codes barring clothes that expose underwear or body parts in an indecent or vulgar manner. Holes in pants above the knee must be covered. Attire and jewelry must not be sexually suggestive or feature crude or vulgar commercial lettering, printing or drawings which would be offensive or insensitive to those on the Wakulla High School campus. They may not depict drugs, tobacco, weapons, alcohol, or be indicative of gang membership. We hope these changes will have a positive impact on both the students and the school environment. It is important to make sure students are dressed appropriately when leaving for school every day. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools SchoolSpecial to The NewsProfessional trainers from Cambridge Education provided summer training for all school based administrators for the purpose of enhancing educator effectiveness. Emphasis was placed on inter-rater reliability, accurate evaluation calibration and constructive feedback. Our teacher evaluation has experienced a complete overhaul. Training before school, together, was important, notes Karen Wells, Chief Human Capital Of cer. The ultimate goal is improved consistency and uniformity throughout the district regarding teacher evaluations, states Wells. Because Florida Statute currently mandates teachers and administrators receive pay based on performance, con dence and integrity in the evaluation ratings is imperative. Consistency throughout the district will insure that all students at all schools have the same advantage of effective teaching and all teachers throughout the district have the same opportunity for accurate observations, honest feedback, and professional development in areas of need. The Cambridge Ed trainers, Terri Singleton and Christie McGinnis, previous Okaloosa County administrator, will return this September and again in November and guide school administrators in real-time classroom observations and during pre and post observation conferences in Wakulla classrooms. Principal Mike Barwick shared, The training was very informative. It was great to hear from administrators in other districts. Principal Kim Dutton said, The emphasis on effective feedback based on evidence collected during observations was a key component in the training. Next year will be a time of learning for us all. Cambridge Education provides training for administratorsSpecial to The NewsAll 28 colleges support principles to improve access, affordability and success for veterans and their families ~ Last week the 28 colleges in the Florida College System (FCS) signed on to a national initiative to promote veteran-friendly policies at colleges and universities. The eight strategies in Keys to Facilitating Veterans Success on Campus encourages colleges to implement policies that help veterans, activeduty service members and their families achieve educational and training goals. "Our system is proud to provide education, jobtraining and re-training to veterans, active-duty service members and their families, said FCS Chancellor Randy Hanna. I commend all 28 colleges for supporting the keys to success, and look forward to strengthening our efforts to create veteranfriendly environments. The 28 FCS institutions joined more than 250 colleges and universities from across the nation to support eight keys to success endorsed by the U.S. Departments of Education, Veterans Affairs and Defense: Create a culture of trust and connectedness across the campus community to promote well-being and success for veterans. Ensure consistent and sustained support from campus leadership. Implement an earlyalert system to ensure all veterans receive academic, career and nancial advice before challenges become overwhelming. Coordinate and centralize campus efforts for all veterans, together with the creation of a designated space (even if limited in size). Collaborate with local communities and organizations, including government agencies, to align and coordinate various services for veterans. Utilize a uniform set of data tools to collect and track information on veterans, including demographics, retention and degree completion. Provide comprehensive professional development for faculty and staff on issues and challenges unique to veterans. Develop systems that ensure sustainability of effective practices for veterans. As of April 2012, the Florida College System enrolled 20,745 veterans, up from 14,171 in fall 2009. The U.S. Department of Education anticipates that number will continue to grow over the next several years. Our colleges have a strong history of responding to the needs of the state and local communities, said Chancellor Hanna. We are proud to support the eight principles for creating veteran-friendly campuses that promote student success.Florida college system commits to support veteransSpecial to The NewsWhile the beginning of the school year is an exciting and wonderful time for students, parents and school staff, it is also the time for the in uenza and other viruses to return with a vengeance. With so many people together in smaller areas, transmitting a virus is as easy as a handshake, a hug, or a sneeze. In an effort to be proactive regarding flu immunization, the Wakulla County Health Department (WCHD) is bringing letters to each school site that went home August 15th, letting parents know that they will be offering the u shots in the school clinics and asking parents to return the forms if they are interested in participating. Returning the forms in a timely manner will allow the health department to determine how much of the vaccine to purchase for each school site. Students and parents will be noti ed when a date has been chosen it should begin in late September or early October. If students or staff have insurance, the WCHD will bill the insurance company for the immunization. If there is no insurance, the school board will pay for the immunization. This is the same process as last year. Parents please ll out all forms given out by the schools and return them in a timely manner. WHS looks forward to a great new school year and working with the community to ensure that our students and staff are happy, safe, and healthy.

By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net This year, Head Coach Scott Klees said the number one goal of his Wakulla War Eagle football teams is to make it to the state championship game and win something that last years team came out shy of during their playoff run with a loss to Godby in the second round. But theres a lot of work to be done before that can happen. Klees says the War Eagles plan to take the season one game at a time. Were not going to look too far ahead, he says. Our focus right now is Marianna and getting our guys ready for that. The team will boast many new young faces as it lost a total of 26 seniors to graduation 19 of whom were starters. Expectations, however, are the same as always, says Klees. He cites experience as the biggest difference in this years team from last years. Nevertheless, he says, the talent is every bit as much there. Were a young team and were going to have to mature a lot quicker than normal, he says. but a state championship is de nitely a reachable goal. Klees says hell be looking to develop the young players mentally as a lot will be asked of them in taking on a high caliber of physicality and speed. With a roster that is only about 40 deep compared to last years 56, Klees says the teams biggest challenge will be depth. The main focus in the off-season, he says, has been getting in shape and doing things right. We had a great conditioning program over the summer and we went to FCA camp, which is a full contact camp, during which, Klees says, the team developed character. According to the head coach, the team focused this summer on being what God wants us to be. We want to have God rst, family second, school third and football fourth. Basically, says Klees, they spent the off-season getting their priorities in order. As far as any individual expectations go, Klees says theyre the same for anyone. When its your time to make a play, we will expect you to make a play, he says. The pressure is on every one of the players equally. In terms of offense, the coach says this years team will look a little bit different. Known for running the ball, Klees says they expect there will be more passing than usual. Last year we probably ran the ball 65 percent of the time, this year itll probably be more like 50-50 passing and running. The War Eagles defense, says Klees, will have to be aggressive. Were going to be very physical. As far as team leadership goes, he hopes that the few seniors that they do have will step up and ll that role. Theyve been there done that, he says. Theyre 24-4 in the last two years, so theyve got the experience. Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comsports news and team views SportsBy ALAN ROSSPlaying an alt-fuel strategy, 55-year-old Mark Martin came within three and a half laps of winning Sundays Pure Michigan 400 at the two-mile Michigan International Speedway tri-oval. Serendipitously, it was the kid he once championed, who in turn had once idolized Martin while growing up, who took the checkered ag. Joey Logano burst upon the NASCAR scene as an 18-year-old teen who won his rst Nationwide Series race in only his third start. Martin had been his hero as well as a fan. When Logano was just 14, Martin spotted him and commented that the young racing phenom was destined to be one of the greats. Many purveyors of racing have been waiting to see that greatness, and while its true that Loganos Cup success has not matched his Nationwide achievements, the 23-year-old has settled down to become a steady, contending challenger for new boss Roger Penske. That Logano got to hand his employer a hallowed victory at the track Penske once owned, you gure, had to go down exceedingly well with The Captain. Three cautions marred the races early stages, including Clint Bowyers spinout on the opening lap. But it was Cup standings leader Jimmie Johnsons unscheduled departure that provided the shocker of the day. After wrecking his primary car in Saturdays practice, Johnson started near the rear of the eld in a backup car, inheriting the lead on Lap 43 of the 200lap race during green ag pit stops, in what looked to be a Top-10 day at worst. But 37 laps later, the ve-time Cup champion slowed, exiting the race with an engine failure. His Chase slot is already assured. With 27 laps to go, the races ninth caution came out, when Kyle Busch spun into the in eld. This is when Martin, who stayed out, took over the top spot. He pulled away on the restart, with Logano and Kurt Busch ghting hard behind him for second. Most likely the winner of that duel would take the eventual lead, since Martins fuel woes were known to all on pit road. Logano finally put Busch behind him and set sail for his onetime idol, who needed a fuel-stretching caution for any remote chance at victory. But with no yellows, the inevitable finally hit Martin with just under four laps to go. The 55 slowed in Turn 3 as Logano roared by, with Kevin Harvick a half second behind. It was Loganos third career Cup triumph and rst with Penske Racing. Johnson, with his 40th-place finish at Michigan, nonetheless maintains a 41-point lead over Clint Bowyer as the series heads to Bristol Saturday night. ROADSIDE RAVES: Austin Dillon, Tony Stewarts hand-picked successor to hop in the seat of the injured three-time Cup champions No. 14 Chevy, rallied from a lap down to nish 14th after an early Turn 4 spin. The 14 is battling the No. 56 of Michael Waltrip Racing for a spot in the owners Chase Loganos 203.695 mph lap on Friday that won pole set a track record at MIS, surpassing last years 203.241 by Marcos Ambrose.

By PATTY WILBURIn late July 2007, a couple of park visitors hiked up to the Sally Ward Spring to have a look at the water. Instead of the usual sh and turtles in the spring that day was a mother manatee with a very small calf! The visitors reported it to Park Rangers, who were thrilled to see the manatees exit the Sally Ward Spring run during a tour the next day. At this point, the calf was the charcoal gray color of a newborn. This dark color fades to light gray within a month after birth. And since manatee mothers are known to seek out quiet waterways to give birth, theres a very good chance that the calf was born in the Sally Ward Spring. The mom, called CR505, was known from the Crystal River area based on her scar patterns. The little calf turned out to be a female, and was later named Gail. Gail and her mom continued to be seen fairly often throughout the fall of 2007, so much so that the park began to keep more detailed records of when manatees were spotted. This was fortuitous, because we were paying good attention when manatees decided to overwinter in the park for the rst time in the winter of 2007-08. Gail and her mom were two of the 12 pioneering manatees at Wakulla Springs that rst cold season. In late winter, after an absence of a couple weeks, the pair was back in the park. But Gail returned with a fresh prop wound above the base of her tail. Thankfully it healed well over time. The one upside of this unfortunate accident was that it made Gail recognizable after CR505 weaned her later that summer. Gail traveled down to Crystal River with CR505, once before leaving her moms side, but she has spent every winter at Wakulla Springs. We have seen her grow up in the park. She has been joined by a lot more manatees here in the last few years, but we have always had a soft spot in our hearts for that rst little calf that started the ball rolling. This summer, we were overjoyed to see things come full circle. On July 29, Gail was seen during tours with a teeny calf at her side! She seems to know exactly what to do; both mom and baby look great. By coincidence, CR505 was in the park that day too. At one point mother and baby were feeding right alongside grandma behind the boat dock. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 Page 11Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsThe rain has made the shing not-so-good From Florida Forest Service Two dozen members of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service will deploy to battle blazes in Oregon this week. Two additional firefighters will aid firefighting in California. The Florida Forest Service has some of the best and most skilled re ghters in the country, said Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. Thanks to Floridas persistent rainfall and current low wild re danger, we are able to offer our talented personnel to support the protection of people, structures and natural resources in other states, Putnam added. An Initial Attack Hand Crew of 20 Florida Forest Service firefighters deployed to Oregon for two weeks alongside four additional crews from Florida, Georgia and Alabama. These re ghters will assist with front-line refighting operations by using shovels, axes and rakes to manually create a re break or re line around the wild re. Hand crews are critical to wild re suppression in the western United States. Four additional Florida Forest Service re personnel will assist in a variety of other wild re-related positions throughout Oregon. To date, the Florida Forest Service has also provided wild re assistance to Colorado, Arizona, Alaska and Nevada. Two Florida Forest Service employees are also serving as support staff for the Salmon River Complex of wild res on Californias Klamath National Forest. The Florida Forest Service manages 1 million acres of public forest land while protecting more than 26 million acres of homes, forestland, and natural resources from the devastating effects of wild re.

We continue to get rain that keeps dumping freshwater into our bays. The water is like threeday-old coffee and more fresh than salt. I dont believe the fresh water has that much effect on reds but the speckled trout sure dont like it. Jimmy at Shell Island Fish Camp in St. Marks says they have started getting some live shrimp but the problem is there are no shermen to buy them and not many sh to eat them. The folks who bring them shrimp run five boats out of the Keaton Beach area and he said he is down to running just one boat due to poor shing where they deliver to. Jimmy said he went offshore a couple of weeks ago and caught some nice grouper but due to bad weather and fact that he had some young kids on board they came in earlier than he wanted. Bucky, who works at Shell Island, went last week down towards the Aucilla and caught some nice reds. Jimmy said folks are still catching reds but no trout and those that are able to get out grouper shing are doing good. We were talking about all the freshwater and he said someone he was talking to who keeps pin sh traps where Angelo keeps his boat, checked them the other day and had no pin sh but did have bream and freshwater cat sh in them. Capt. Randy Peart said he is still shing over at St. George and shing is hit and miss. He was able to get down to the East End of St. George for a couple of days and did good on reds on topwater and also caught some nice speckled trout to 5 pounds. The cut has been good for reds and big mangrove snapper but when the tide starts falling the grass gets so bad you cant sh. His best trips have been out a short ways from the beach and he has been shing the tide line with shrimp or gulp on the bottom and catching some really big white trout and whiting. Randys son went into the U.S. Army in January and has completed basic, Airborne and Ranger school. He will now be stationed at Ft. Benning and expects to be deployed to Afghanistan in about three or four months. Capt. David Fife had some fireman buddies down from the Atlanta area last week and he limited out on reds each day. He said they threw back quite a few legal sh and some small ones. They shed live minnows on the bottom. He said almost every bar they went to had fish and if there were plenty of mullet on the bar there were plenty of reds. Of course they didnt sh a whole long time due to the bad weather. One of my neighbors said he went out and dove in about 30 feet of water. He said there were grouper every where and they came in with their limit of gags and also had 15 hog snapper. Another neighbor went out last week and he said they had a good catch of grouper. They were out by one of the towers and using some extremely heavy tackle dropped some big baits down for Goliath grouper just to see if they could get one up and get a picture. The rst one they hooked straightened out the hook so they went to a bigger hook. He said they got one to the top that they estimated weighing 300 pounds. They took pictures and let it go. Alan Lamarche of Shell Point and owner of Plantation Security is nally home after his surgery. Alan has had a hard time recovering but hopefully now is on the down hill side. Alan takes lots of kids shing and donates quite a few trips to organizations. Glad youre home, Alan, and look forward to seeing you back on the water, as I know you are champing at the bit. The middle of October, Warriors and Quiet Waters will be bring six more soldiers from Ft. Benning to Wakulla for a week of fishing and relaxing. Capt. David Fife and I are again shing with three of them and look forward to them being here. Remember to know your limits and watch out for those thunderstorms out there. They can pop up rather quickly.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com As the saying goes, the best laid plans This past weekend was heavy on rain, which leads us to remain on dry (or as dry as possible) land. The patrol that was scheduled for St. George Island had to be canceled de to inclement weather and ood warnings in the area. The crew of David Rabon, Duane Treadon and Fran Keating along with Coxswain Tim Ashley erred on the side of caution. We never want to create an unnecessary dangerous situation. Hopefully they will have the opportunity to reschedule this coming weekend! While waiting for the rain to pass, like many of you it was most of the weekend, time was spent reading an interesting article on the Coast Guard from the American Spirit magazine that was passed down from a friend. It seemed tting. The history of the Coast Guard was discussed in depth. Of particular interest was a review on the development of a Federal agency for aiding navigation the year before the establishment of the Revenue Cutter Service. The U.S. Lighthouse Service, operating under the Treasury Department, took over maintenance of lighthouses along with other aides to navigation on Aug. 7, 1789. As the Coast Guard we know today evolved, the Lighthouse Service moved under their umbrella. The rst lighthouse in the United States was built in 1716 on Little Brewster Island guiding ships into Boson Harbor. To add a little perspective, the lighthouse in St Marks was built in 1830, the rst lighthouse on St. George in 1833 and in Carrabelle in 1835. A little trivia, the oldest standing original light tower in the United States still in operation is the Sandy Hook Lighthouse in New Jersey. It was built in 1764. Why this all seemed to t, the rain we have had can make it hard for boaters to navigate even in familiar waters. The aids to navigation serve as resources to mariners to assist them in making it safely in to harbor. It is a good idea to practice navigating by using these rather than a GPS or other navigational aid in the event you need to rely on them. You dont want the first time you need them to be an emergency. If you are in the St. George Island area this weekend, we hope you will stop and say hello if you see us!

A Dewar ask is like a special very insulated icebox that has coils wrapped around the outside to slowly turn the very cold liquid oxygen into a gaseous oxygen. We own the ask and have a Tallahassee supplier ll it in Georgia. We make Nitrox by taking this gasi ed liquid, blending it through our compressors, and store it in those huge white cylinders you see outside. We have approximately 80,000-cubic feet of stored gasses at our facility. Each Dewar ask we ll in Georgia will make over 40,000 cubic feet of 32 percent Nitrox! This turns out to be double the volume of oxygen that we used last summer. And all agree that this summer, has been wetter than most in the past (except for TS Debbie of last June). Something has changed! Our summer season is de ned by the arrival of the open water divers, recently awakened by the warmer weather and the promise of a bountiful ocean harvest. Over the past two years this began as early as March. The rst wave included those repairing or upgrading their life support technology (regulator service, cylinder inspection and BC repair). With the opening of popular shing seasons in April, servicing and accessorizing spear guns adds to the workload. By May, the ocean is much warmer bringing out the more timid divers in search of masks, ns and snorkels. With the close of local schools, June and July are so busy at our facility, hire extra help and we give up working special projects to focus just on customer support. A shift from spear shing to more scalloping depends upon the years predicted harvest and rainfall. This year has seen so much rain people are nding it dif cult to see the scallop shells in the grass beds. But there is still time! Scalloping season now extends through much of September. Only with the return to classes in August does the traf c slow down. Labor Day marks the technical end of our summer season which this year falls on the last days of August. Our underwater summer is currently six months long. What differed from last summer was the abundance of training requested throughout this summer over the last. Folks want to learn to dive, to use Nitrox, to dive caverns and caves, to learn side mount and rebreathers and dive deep breathing Trimix (a helium, nitrogen and oxygen blend we also mix at our facility). Perhaps this is a re ection on an improving economy, availability of more free time, or better prices and interest in the sport now that diving support is readily available. I always expected folks to seek dive training in the cooler more comfortable winter when water clarity was better. But this summer has not seen the temperature soar into the 100s as it has in the past. Many of our training sites however, have been flooded much of the summer, yet the demand continued. The consequence is I now seek another diving instructor before next summer to be better prepared! All of this additional diving resulted in the consumption of an increase amount of the gasses that we blend using liquid oxygen. I took a chance when I invested in the Dewar ask two years ago. It set us back $1,000 (used), but reduced the cost of the commodity so much, we will recover the investment by years end. This fall we get back to projects (new Hydro station, expanded oxygen ll station, new repair facility, new web site) and dream of new directions (TCC courses in Diving at the Environmental Institute). See you next summer!Coast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg Stanton Special to The NewsThe Franklin County Courthouse was a buzz on Tuesday, Aug. 13, with federal and state legislative leaders, organizations and individuals in Apalachicola for a press conference and the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation eld hearing on the on Apalachicola Bay. The purpose of the hearing was to examine the impacts of decreased water ows on the Apalachicola Bay and area industries. It also addressed the effects that chronic drought and upstream water withdrawals have had on the Apalachicola Bay, the Gulf, local communities and the oyster industry, which has typically represented about 10 percent of the Nations supply and 90 percent of Floridas supply. At the press conference State Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, and Rep. Halsey Beashers, R-Monticello, were joined by Rep. Aaron Bean from Jacksonville to speak on the importance of the Apalachicola Bay, its uniqueness and the fact that it serves as a nursery to the many and varied sh species, oysters, shrimp, scallops, and other marine and plant life vital to the health of the Gulf of Mexico and the local economy. U.S. Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio conducted the hearing, chaired by Sen. Nelson. A panel of distinguished individuals included Congressman Steve Southerland; Jon Steverson, Northwest Florida Water Management District; Dan Tonsmeire, Apalachicola RiverKeeper; Shannon Hartsfield, Franklin County Seafood Workers Association; and, Dr. Karl Havens, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences provided testimony on the importance of the Apalachicola Bay and the devastating impact of the ever increasing reduction of water ows for the Apalachicola River over the last two decades. The U.S. Army Corps was represented by Col. Jon Chytka, who spoke to the Corps efforts and challenges to update the system-wide Master Water Control Manual developed in 1958, for the ACF (Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint Rivers) Water system. According to Colonel Chytakas testimony, the ACF draft Manual update now in progress will not be ready for release until two years from now. Gov. Rick Scott toured Apalachicola and in response to the need for action now, announced his intent to le suit against Georgia to stop their unchecked and growing consumption of water. Because Georgia has not negotiated in good faith to fairly share the waters that ow between our states that Florida will bring suit in the U.S. Supreme Court next month to stop Georgias unchecked consumption of water that threatens the existence of Apalachicola sheries and the future economic development of the region. The economic future of Apalachicola Bay and Northwest Florida is at stake, Scott said. On Monday, Aug.12, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that the condition in the Apalachicola Bay had resulted in a shery disaster for Floridas oystermen, allowing them to obtain relief funds. Emily Menashes, National Marine Fisheries Service testified at the hearing as well and explained the extensive process that is used to determine such a disaster. However, it will take Congress to approve funding for relief and it is not certain when or how much would be provided.

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 16 As summer began to wind down in Tallahassee, at least one of the sources of inspiration or annoyance for the capitals denizens wound down as well. The Dream Defenders, who held the longest-lasting protests in recent memory at the state Capitol, announced they would move on. None of their goals had truly been accomplished, but the protesters argued that they would push forward with enough votes to oust Gov. Rick Scott in 2014, if it came to that. More action, though, was already in the of ng in Tallahassee. Scott announced a lawsuit against the states neighbor to the north, the latest skirmish in a three-way water war, and Democrats began plotting for campaigns that will provide fodder for more than a year. DREAMING OF AN END What happens to a dream deferred? Langston Hughes wrote in the poem Harlem. Does it dry up / like a raisin in the sun? / Or fester like a sore / And then run? After a month-long occupation of the hallway outside Scotts of ce, the Dream Defenders group decided that they had festered enough -and, if not quite run, were at least ready to leave. The last celebrity to visit them, civil-rights icon Julian Bond, applauded the group at its goingaway press conference. Its tting that the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington is coming up in a few days, he said. That movement made this movement possible, and that movement -your movement -gave our movement its legacy. The sit-in protest began July 16, following the acquittal of Georgia Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The protesters asked for the state to repeal its controversial stand your ground self-defense law, which grants immunity to people who use deadly force if they have reason to believe their lives are in danger. Also they called for taking steps to end racial pro ling and to get rid of zero-tolerance school discipline policies that the protesters said hurt childrens ability to get an education, often for trivial offenses. While Zimmerman never used the stand your ground law in his defense, instead relying on a more traditional self-defense claim, the discussion of the law often dominated the early debate over the case. And it often overshadowed the other changes the Dream Defenders said they were looking for. Ending their protest after 31 days, the demonstrators pointed to a list of what they called accomplishments, even as critics could point out that they didnt have much to show in terms of results. The group forced a poll of lawmakers that could have resulted in a special session to deal with stand your ground. But it will end up well short of the 96 lawmakers needed to support a special session; by the end of the week the idea was losing by a 96-45 margin. The protests prompted House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, to announce a hearing on stand your ground, but the chairman of the subcommittee that will hold the hearing has said hes not inclined to change one damn comma of the law. One thing protesters seemed to do successfully was to discourage Scott from showing up at the Capitol. The governor rarely appeared at his of ce during the protests. He also seemed content to allow the protests to run out of steam on their own, even as legislative leaders ran out of patience and called for the demonstrators to leave. After the state had spent more than $400,000 on security for the protests -some of it in the form of overtime for Capitol police -Scott thanked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for providing a safe environment for people to exercise their First Amendment rights. We live in a great state, in a great nation, where everyone is free to express their views. But the Dream Defenders also vowed to be back Sept. 23, the rst committee week leading up to the 2014 regular session. So had the sit-in ended, or had it merely been deferred? DREAMS OF MY WATER While the protests raged on at his Tallahassee of ce, Scott made his way to the Panhandle on Tuesday, where he announced the latest escalation in a decadeslong battle between Florida, Alabama and Georgia: a lawsuit at the U.S. Supreme Court aimed at getting more water released downstream from a lake that is used to slake the thirst of the Atlanta metropolitan complex. For 23 years, the three states have bickered over how to divvy up the water in the ApalachicolaChattahoochee-Flint River basin. Florida has argued that water use at the top of the system has reduced the downstream ow of freshwater to the Apalachicola Bay region, damaging that areas oyster industry. Florida and Alabama say too much water is being siphoned off for Atlantas drinking water. Last year, the Apalachicola Bay collapsed. The lack of freshwater combined with a historic drought to produce the lowest ows in 89 years --since they have been recorded. That followed a series of court rulings that sent the responsibility for regulating the ows back to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Its having a dramatic impact, and its because Georgia has taken our water, Scott said. The Corps of Engineers is not worried about us. Thats why Floridas going to le suit against Georgia. Take this all this way to the Supreme Court. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal slammed Scotts move in a statement. Gov. Scotts threat to sue my state in the U.S. Supreme Court greatly disappoints me after I negotiated in good faith for two years, Deal said in a prepared statement. More than a year ago, I offered a framework for a comprehensive agreement. Florida never responded. Its absurd to waste taxpayers money and prolong this process with a court battle when Ive proposed a workable solution. The Atlanta area uses 360 million gallons of water per day, according to Scotts of ce, and Georgias consumption is expected to nearly double to 705 million gallons per day by 2035 -about the entire amount of water in the Apalachicola Bay. Scott was able to announce less antagonistic news Friday, saying the states unemployment rate had held steady at 7.1 percent. In a video message, Scott chose to focus on the number of jobs created in July. In the month of July the private sector in Florida generated over 34,000 jobs, Scott said. Thats right, over 34,000 private sector jobs. Thats the biggest growth in private sector jobs in any month in the last two and half years. Scott also said the total number of new jobs during his time in of ce -369,100 -was half of his claim that he would add 700,000 jobs to the states workforce in seven years. Democrats were quick to remind voters that Scott suggested at one debate that the 700,000 would be in addition to normal economic growth, which would push the number he needs to hit much higher. They also gave credit to President Barack Obama for the job growth. Before Rick Scott took of ce, he promised Floridians 1,700,000 new jobs hes barely 20 percent of the way there, Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant said in a written statement. He has fallen so far short of his promises, his only choice is to take credit for jobs he didnt create. The truth is that hes been holding Florida back, with big tax giveaways for special interests. DREAMS OF THE DEMOCRATS Meanwhile, the state party with the fewest legislative seats and just one statewide elected of ceholder began dreaming up ways to overcome both problems though at least one of those efforts seemed to end up with an early wake-up call regarding just how dif cult it would be. On Thursday, Democrats announced they had their first candidate for a Cabinet post, or at least the rst candidate that the party was willing to put any weight behind. Allie Braswell, the 51-year-old head of the Central Florida Urban League, announced he would challenge Chief Financial Of cer Jeff Atwater in 2014. Unseating any of the three Republicans who currently hold the states Cabinet posts looks like a tall order; each of them won by at least 13 percentage points in 2010, and all could bene t if Obamas sagging approval ratings and the normal six-year itch for incumbent presidents generate another GOP wave approaching the one in 2010. But Braswell was undaunted, touting his ability to slash a $14 million budget he oversaw as a technology executive at Disney to $11 million without cutting jobs. We can tighten the belt, and we can also help Floridians, Braswell said. The next day, though, reports suggested that the new candidate had not been quite as successful with his personal nances. The Florida Times-Union reported Friday afternoon that Braswell has led for bankruptcy three times, most recently in 2008 in Orlando. Braswell said he used bankruptcy as way to responsibly pay my debt and that his nancial problems would allow him to empathize with voters. The only other Democrat currently on the statewide ballot is Thaddeus Thad Hamilton, who is taking another shot at the agriculture commissioner post after getting 2 percent of the vote as a non-partisan candidate four years ago STORY OF THE WEEK: The Dream Defenders decide to bring an end to a month-long sit-in protest over the states self-defense laws, school discipline policies and the issue of racial pro ling. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Our work and our power have grown too big for these walls. Phillip Agnew, the Dream Defenders leader, on the decision to leave.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Hey now, hey now, dont dream its overBy DAVID WHITE Intimidated by wine? Youre not alone. Consider the prototypical wine connoisseur swirling his glass, sniffing his wine, and blabbering on about some French chateau. Hes insufferable. Or consider a representative tasting note. Wine Spectator recently praised a wine for offering notes of creamy boysenberry, plum skin and cassis . [along with] hints of mesquite and grilled herbs. Theyre bewildering. Add to that the number of wine regions, grape varieties, and production methods that oenophiles can easily rattle off, and its no wonder why so many people nd wine so daunting. Keep your chin up. Wine might be complex, but at the end of the day, its just fermented grape juice. And the best way to learn about wine is to drink it. For budding wine enthusiasts, the importance of tasting is impossible to overstate. Even simple questions, like your goto varietal on a normal weeknight, are impossible to answer until youve tasted hundreds of different wines. If you prefer white wine, do you seek ones that are crisp and light, like Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre? Or do you prefer whites that are buttery and ripe, like California Chardonnay? If you prefer red, do you seek out big, muscular wines, like Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon? Or the more restrained pro le of Pinot Noir from Burgundy? Tasting can be as simple as visiting the local wine shop or attending a food and wine festival. Getting together with friends and asking each person to bring something different is another way to taste several wines at once. One of my favorite tastings is a bit more formal. I select four varietals generally Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah and open two bottles of each, one from California and one from France. The stereotype tells us that American wines are fruitier than their French counterparts. While one can nd wines that debunk this stereotype, its based in truth. So I purposefully seek out wines that fit the stereotype. And I serve everything blind, pouring the wines from paper bags to mask where theyre from. Recognizing the differences should be obvious, even to novices. The aromatics of California Sauvignon Blanc are intense, typically reminiscent of fresh-cut grass and grapefruit. French Sauvignon Blanc, especially from Sancerre and Pouilly Fum, presents more subtle aromatics, like chalk and white owers. Chardonnay provides a similar contrast. While California Chardonnays are characterized by tropical fruits and butter, French Chardonnays are marked by tart fruits, like green apples and lime. When Pinot Noir comes from warmer regions of California, like Napa Valley and Carneros, it presents aromatics of sweet fruits, like black cherries. In the French region of Burgundy, Pinot Noir generally offers aromas of tart cherries and earth. Syrah can offer a stunning contrast. Many California winemakers utilize the grape to produce fruit bombs think gobs of ripe blackberries and licorice. French Syrah is typically more restrained, marked by blueberries, meat, and pepper. Looking for differences between similar wines is extremely educational. And when the paper bag comes off each bottle, its exciting to see whether or not you correctly deduced the origin of each. This is just one model for a tasting, of course. One can just as easily host a wine on a budget party, selecting several bottles under $10. Its also fun to explore one grape, in depth. Pinot Noir, for example, is particularly expressive -so its fun to explore the differences between classic bottlings from Napa, Sonoma, Oregon, and Burgundy. Once wine becomes a passion, those baf ing tasting notes make sense. Hard-to-pronounce regions across Europe become easier to remember. Those aws that sommeliers can spot become obvious. But only if youve tasted enough wine. So start drinking.David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com. WHITES WINESIntimidated by wine? Just start drinking -Janet
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 Page 15A First Day of School From Page 1AStudents can prepare for doing well on the ACT and on other college entrance exams by taking advantage of the rigorous curricula offered at Wakulla High School such as Tallahassee Community College dual enrollment courses and Advanced Placement courses. TCC dual enrollment opportunities have increased this year for WHS students due to courses now offered at the Crawfordville TCC Center and more TCC courses offered on the WHS campus. Currently at WHS, students can take dual enrollment English and social studies classes without ever leaving the high school. In addition, distance learning equipment was purchased from the Gifted and Talented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Scholars grant through the Panhandle Education Consortium. Wakulla High is using this equipment to offer dual enrollment STEM courses that do not have enough WHS students to offer a class there, but through distance learning, the WHS students can virtually become part of the actual TCC class in Tallahassee while remaining on the WHS campus. Furthermore, Advanced Placement courses are high school classes taught at a challenging college level with an internationally recognized standardized test at the end of the course. Students earn high school credits and can also earn college credits through the AP program. Students will be better prepared to score higher on the ACT and on the SAT if they have chosen a challenging course of studies. Wakulla High School has increased information and awareness efforts, including Parent Nights several times a year. For more information on taking the ACT or the SAT, contact the Wakulla High School Guidance Department at 926-2221 or WHS Assistant Principal of Curriculum Sunny Chancy at 926-7125 (email@example.com).Wakulla High grads exceed state in ACT scores PHOTOS BY AMANDA MAYOR
Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comA close working relationship is a great experience. It encourages and allows for the accomplishment of deeds beyond the abilities of a single individual. Whether called teamwork, unit integrity or a symbiotic relationship, the accomplishments are compounded many times over when two or more are working together with a single purpose. Antiquity and current events are replete with examples of the teamwork which accomplished feats with long lasting effects. Who would have known of Roebuck without Sears, or Smith without Wesson, or even Adam without Eve? This concept carries far beyond the human involvement of recent recorded history. A good example of this model in Wakulla County is lichens. Lichens are composed of algae and fungi living together in a symbiotic fashion which is beneficial to both organisms. They are found in a wide variety of locations around the planet, including some exceptionally harsh environments. The fungi play an important role in the nutrient cycling and organic residue decomposition. They are responsible for the breakdown of dead organic materials so it may be converted into a useable form for utilization by another organism. The algae processes atmospheric carbon dioxide into organic carbon sugars to supply nutrients both organisms. By working together, albeit unconsciously, both are able to prosper in environments where they would individually fail. Lichens can be found in a variety of locations in Wakulla County. One of the most obvious, at least to homeowners and gardeners, is on shrubs and trees. In many cases the lichens are blamed for the decline of the plant or tree. The reality is the lichens are opportunistic and are completing the natural cycle. If the lichens were not on the job of consuming dead organic matter, something else would be aiding the decay of the material. Another common Wakulla County lichen is deer moss. The greygreen clusters have a cloud-like appearance and a resemblance to Spanish moss, but are located exclusively on the forest oor. Deer moss is very slow growing with large mats taking many years, even multiple decades, to develop. Floridas natural re cycle will kill this lichen. When large mats are encountered in the woods, it is an indication the area has not burned recently. Deer moss has a miniscule root structure and gets its moisture from the air, like all lichens. During periods of drought it will be crunchy and delicately fragile. The recent rains have delivered ample moisture and insured the clumps are soft and pliable. This rehydration process will take a short period and is common to all lichens. Even before recorded history, lichens have had multiple uses, depending on the culture and time period. Some populations in northern Eurasia and North America have utilized lichens as food, on a regular basis or as a means of survival during famine. Some of these same peoples have utilized lichens as a basis for textile dyes. In recent years synthetic dyes have replace most of these natural dyes. One of the most common contemporary uses for deer moss is as miniature trees and shrubs for model railroaders and architects.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 W a k u l l a C o u n t y S e n i o r C i t i z e n s C e l e b r a t e L i f e Wakulla County Senior Citizens Celebrate Life Programs to help seniors with health care costs Savvy Senior, Page 4B WEEK IN WAKULLA Page 2B Explore charming Bruges, BelgiumTravel by Linda Carter, Page 10B By MICHELLE HUNTEROf the Senior CenterThe month of July brought a fun celebration for the Fourth of July and a winter celebration with Christmas in July. Christmas in July is our biggest fundraiser of the year, which supports the Meals on Wheels program and our congregate meals program which are served daily in the centers dining room. The Meals on Wheels program provides 800 meals per week for the homebound seniors of Wakulla County, and we serve approximately 400 to 450 congregate meals a week to those who visit here at the center. We would like to thank all of our sponsors who graciously gave to this event to make it a success; Air-Con of Wakulla, Bevis Funeral Home/Harvey-Young Chapel, Centennial Bank, Creative Bus Sales, ESG Wakulla, James Moore & Company, Jared Miller/Trinity Food Service, R.H. and Beverly Carter, Sheriff Charlie Creel, The Wakulla News, WCTV Channel 6, Wakulla County Republican Executive Committee, Wakulla Insurance Agency, and Wal-Mart. We would also like to thank the many volunteers who put in the long hours it takes to make this such a popular event for the community, and all the members of the community that come out and gave their support to this event. Diane Vauss played Christmas music on the piano while guests had the chance to visit with Santa and have their pictures taken with him by Jo Ann Palmer. The silent auction is the big hit of this event with 88 auction items to bid on, many went home happy with a great gift. One exception may be all those that bid on the autographed football signed by Nigel Bradham of the Buffalo Bills; formerly a player for Wakulla High and FSU; but only one person went home with it. All of the silent auction items are donated by many in the community, and the staff from the center. The dining room looked just like Christmas with a large Christmas tree as a back drop for Santa, beautifully decorated wreathes all around the room, the tables dressed in red and white linens with a very large mirror in the center, decorated with winter scenes of train sets, winter villages with snow, and toy soldiers. During lunch Virginia Moore and Becky Black from the fundraising committee raf ed off prizes that were donated by many of our local businesses. Lunch was served by our Angels, the staff and many volunteers from the Sheriffs Department. Again, thank you everyone for your help and support that made this years Christmas in July a huge success. Happy Birthday USA brought out the stars and stripes with glitter, a few crowns with stars, and red and blue cupcakes. The band played a good selection of patriotic songs and the seniors joined in to sing and dance. We played a game of 50 state Bingo in which we called the states of the birthplace of many of the seniors amazing how many states other than Florida were called. Turn to on Page 3B A few favorite sayings of mine: A child will get just as much fun from playing with an inch worm as he does a new red bicycle. Time sometimes ies like a bird or crawls like a worm. Humans are most happy when they dont notice how father time passes at all. The early bird catches the worm and the early worm always gets caught. Sometimes its good to sleep late! Be nice to worms, value their life, dont trod over them, help them along their path if you can, because after all is said and done; they will pay us back one day. Worms: They were my rst pet until I went to school and had to take the little glass bottle home, give a stool specimen, ll out the paper and wrap the little rubber band around the paper af xing it to the jar and then turn it in to my teacher. This test had been the standard for many years to ward off intestinal protozoa. The protozoa was examined and when detected the mircoscopist could then determine parasite stages in the specimen or duodenal uids and treatment could be administered effectively. One of my uncles, when he was a boy in school, decided that he would get his sample for testing from the hog pen (piney woods rooters) behind the house. You can only imagine what the microscopist found during that examination. My uncle was caught and given strict warning to never do that again. Everyone has a fascination with these little creatures. As a child we use to sing about eating worms;Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I think Ill go eat worms! Big fat juicy ones, Eensie weensy squeesy ones, See how they wiggle and squirm.Many of us remember that little song about worms and I hope I caused you to sing the tune. While working in my backyard this week, I noticed an inch worm humping its back, jousting its body forward and dragging its hind-end forward to catch up (maybe the action occurs in reverse, its how you look at the inch worm) only to repeat the cycle once again. The inch worm is the larvae of a moth (I didnt know this little tidbit of information). I wrote the quote above regarding an inch worm amusing a child only to discover that a 60-year-old man has the same fascination with the inch worm as a 6-year-old child. I spotted him crawling on a plant I had picked up while seated atop of my John Deere tractor. I stopped the tractor, got off and let the inch worm travel up my hand, wrist and arm before letting his last arch take him to a live branch on a plant. Turn to Page 4BLets talk about worms!

We are not going to sell clothing or shoes this year. If you have items, please contact either Helen at 933-6888 or Tanya at 5080881 and they will arrange to meet you at the old Crawfordville School lunchroom to accept the donations. Aug 22 Aug 29 Now thats schools back in its time to tell you about some great things coming to WCPL in the coming weeks. First, Wilderness Coast Public Libraries, the library co-operative were a part of along with Franklin & Jefferson Counties, has purchased a Document Station for us which will be installed by midSeptember. This piece of equipment, which comes at no cost to our budget, will allow users, via a user friendly touch screen system, to scan directly to our public computers, make copies, change PDF documents into Word, as well as allowing us to provide a faxing service, along with other options. You will also be able to pay directly at the station. After of course an initial period of growing pains associated with any new piece of equipment, we think this will allow our patrons an easier time with managing their documents here. We thank Wilderness Coast for helping us provide new services to our patrons! Secondly, beginning in October, we are going to begin to phase in audio books into our Overdrive e-book library. You will be able to easily download audio books, to your computer, phone, or other compatible listening device. Youll be able to check out these audio books the same way as you to our e-books, via our website. Were excited to offer this new service and believe that it will become as popular as our e-book service has! Wed also like to remind everyone that the many great community organizations, which use the library during the fall through spring months, are ramping back up in September. We encourage everyone to come by and meet with great groups such as; the Wakulla County Historical Society, the Iris Garden Club, Native Plant Society, CCOW, Wakulla County Christian Coalition, and many more! These groups offer all a way to get involved in our great community as well as learning new things about Wakullas history, environment, and community issues. All meetings are free and open to the public and you can get meeting times by going to our website www.wakullalibrary. org and clicking on the events link, our Facebook page, or coming by or calling us at 926-7415 to be added to our weekly email newsletter. Friday Night Movie Our Friday Night Movie this week is a sci-fi blockbuster that came out earlier this year starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. This thought provoking PG-13 lm (which our Public Showing License forbids me to name here) tells of how one of the few remaining drone repairmen assigned to Earth, its surface devastated after decades of war with the alien Scavs, discovers a crashed spacecraft with contents that bring into question everything he believed about the war, and may even put the fate of mankind in his hands. What it the truth and is the repairman actually who he thinks he is? Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for this 7 p.m. showing.By SCOTT JOYNER Library Director Library News...

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 Page 3B Last month, seniors celebrated Fourth of July, Christmas in JulyFrom Page 1BLt. Bruce Ashley assisted in bringing the group Operation S.A.F.E. to the center to educate seniors about the many scams that target them. They covered such things as a reverse mortgage, nancial assistance with funeral expenses, telephone scams, and so much more. This is an ongoing issue that we try to keep up with to protect our seniors from becoming a victim. This was a very informative presentation and everyone took home a folder with items they can keep for future reference. Sara Thomas, the Gopher Tortoise Conservation Intern from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and two other interns, Kaylee Larkin and Sarah Power, presented a very educational program on the gopher tortoise that lives in our area. They described the look and shape of the hole that is the entrance to their home, how and why they are a protected species, and discussed all the different critters that inhabit and share the space with the tortoise; it is a very symbiotic relationship. Many of the seniors grew up with these in the area, and some still have them on or near their property. The seniors enjoyed seeing and touching all the artifacts, and the live gopher tortoise they brought along to observe and talk about. We have a drumming circle coming up on Thursday, Aug. 22, at 10:30 a.m. if anyone would like to join in. There will be drums provided or you can bring your own. It is a free program so come join in the fun. We will be starting a Walk With Ease program in September. It is a six week program, one hour per day, three days a week, to promote physical activity such a gentle exercise, warming up, walking and a cool down. If you are interested please call 9267145 ext. 223 and speak to Angel for details. The program is free to those over 60. Or you can stop by the center if you have any questions about this activity or any others on our calendar of events. You can also follow us on Facebook to see what is going on at the center https://www. facebook.com/WakullaSeniorCenter. Alice Veasman visits with Santa at Christmas in July.

Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com From Page 1B Observation: We really should spend more time with inch worms as I think it extends life as it reduces stress and is a very amusing sight. I liken it to staring at a camp re its mesmerizing. For several years now we have celebrated in Sopchoppy the Worm Gruntin Festival. Sopchoppy is renowned for its title as the worm gruntin capital of the world. Having had the pleasure of being Master of Ceremonies at this past years event, I have thoroughly researched the earthworm, which is the common name for the largest members of the Oligochaeta in the phylum Annelida family. They are one of natures top soil scientist and a gardeners friend. There is a lot of scientific data regarding the earthworm and their positive effects on our environment but if you bring it all down to where we live in Wakulla County, they are a great sh bait too! So lets talk about worms (not intestinal worms, not inch worms and not earthworms) being the key to extending human life and how our environment affects our life span. If environment is important to extending our life span, and it is, then what changes in our environment can we make to lengthen life? In crawls the worm, the superman of aging and research that has been conducted in a small worm that researchers call Caenorhabditis elgans. The worm is no longer than a sesame seed, it is tubular, and is also called a roundworm. C. elegans are transparent, unsegmented, vermiform (wormshaped), and bilaterally symmetrical (mirror image halves) and basically does three things in its short lifespan of two weeks: it squirms, eats bacteria, and eliminates waste taken into its little worm body. Just because it is little doesnt mean it isnt one tough little elegan. Some of its kind survived the concussion of the in-air explosion of the space shuttle Challenger. Therefore, it survived the reball in the sky but at the same time it can also survive a deep freeze in a sort of hibernation, then thaw time. So while the C. elegan can survive a great deal of heat and deep freeze temperatures, what it cannot survive is time. As stated, its life span is a mere two weeks and our little worm dies. But dont sell C. elegan short, it has been a great collaborator with researches and has been the factor of three Nobel prizes being awarded to researchers who work with them. For those researchers who regard aging as a disease, the C. elegans makes a good case. If the little worms are made to live in a petri dish and are given enough food to live on, and subjected to no outside stress in the form of disease or trauma, C. elegans still live only two weeks and then die. That means that something internal to their makeup is killing them. Yet because the organism is pretty easy to work with, and because its genome (the genetic material of an organism) has been as thoroughly sequenced as possible, researchers have used C. elegans to see how to play around with genes in ways that extend its life. More interesting, the tiny worms genetic makeup is close enough to that of more complex organism, like humans, to shed light on aging in general. In the lab, mutations of the worm can be created by engineering bacteria to carry genetic materials that, once the bacteria are eaten, start changing the behavior of select genes in the worm. As with human, C. elegans have genes that control growth and aging by regulating hormones that influence growth and aging. When those genes are altered, the way organisms grow and age also changes. In a series of experiments led by Cynthia Kenyon at the University of California San Francisco, the teams turned off the expression of a gene in C. elegans known as daf-2. The gene encodes a hormone receptor that rests on the membrane of the worms cells. Normally the gene enables a hormone that speeds aging in older worms. Humans have the hormones insulin and insulin growth factor (IGF 2) to perform a similar job. When the gene was turned off in the worms, they lived twice as long. Lets not call that miraculous, which in a way it is, the state of the longer-living worms in their new old age was equally as impressive. When normal C. elegans worms reach the last day of their two weeks among us, they still eat but can no longer squirm. However, the changed worms were squirming all over the place in their third week and also seem able to resist disease, toxins, and stress (such as cold and heat) far better than normal worms. Did these scientist and researcher extend the life span by 50 percent? Yes. They developed kind of a super-C. elegans-worm that lives much longer and has a vivacious quality of life. By the way, similar gene mutations in yeast, fruit ies, and mice that attempt to regulate the hormones that influence growth and aging have also extended the life and vigor of those creatures. Therefore the big question is will it work on humans? Well, Im glad you asked; its still being researched. There is unpublished research out there in California but its still in the research stage. In the meantime, Dr. Kenyon offers a prelude in the studies of human centenarians, who she notes also often have modified genetic pathways that distinguish how they regulate hormones, and who tend to be particularly good at warding off disease and dealing with environment stress. While we wait on the experiments to reveal whether we can reengineer the life span, the worms remain a particularly good way to reveal date on the fundaments of how we age. According to Dr. Kenyon, it is all about how well we deal with the insults that environments throw at us and how our bodies turn on themselves as we grow older. Our genes turn on and off the mechanism that age us, and between us there are enormous variations in how our genes are expressed. Moreover, the lack of one central process governing aging may mean that each organ system, perhaps each cell establishes its own local aging identity and that many of them in uence longevity. After studying and researching for 25 years, scientists tell us that the superstar of solving the rapid aging process is found in C. elgans, the premier organism in which to do aging research. Who would have thunk it? Wouldnt it be hilarious if the magic of aging for human beings was found in the anatomy, the gene pool of a microscopic worm? T.W. Maurice Langston is executive director of the Wakulla County Senior Citizens Center.Lets talk about worms: e secret to extending life may be in a simple wormBy RON POLLACKFamilies USA At the end of May, the Medicare Trustees reported that Medicare costs are expected to grow more slowly than was previously expected. One of the positive effects of this trend is that Medicare premiums are also expected to increase more slowly. What does that mean for you and your family? Heres a look at the different types of Medicare premiums. Q: What do people mean by Medicare premiums? A: When people talk about Medicare premiums, theyre often thinking of the Part B premium (Part B primarily covers doctor visits and other outpatient services). For most bene ciaries, this premium is automatically deducted from their Social Security benefit each month. In 2013, most people with Medicare pay a Part B premium of $104.90 a month. Q: What other Medicare premiums exist besides Part B? A: Most people with Medicare do not pay a premium for Medicare Part A (which covers hospital and other inpatient care) because they or their spouse paid enough in Medicare taxes during their working years to qualify for premium-free Part A. If you have a Part D prescription drug plan, you do pay premiums. In 2013, the national average for a Part D monthly premium is $40.18, but Part D premiums vary widely from plan to plan and region to region. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, your plan usually charges an additional premium. Finally, you may have a private Medicare supplemental policy, either from a former employer or private company. The premiums for these policies vary signi cantly. Q: How are Medicare premiums determined? A: By law, the Part B premium must cover 25 percent of Medicares Part B costs. When Medicare costs grow more slowly, so do premiums. Part D premiums are similarly tied to the costs of prescription drugs. Medicare Advantage premiums are determined by a more complicated process, but they also reflect trends in costs. Because Part D and Medicare Advantage plans are run by private companies, premiums can vary a lot. But even so, when health care costs rise more slowly, premiums usually do too. Q: Does everyone pay the same premium? A: If your income is more than $85,000 (for just you, or $170,000 for you and your spouse), you pay an additional Part B premium. How much more depends on your income: People with the highest incomes pay the most. Also, since 2011, the same high-income bene ciaries have paid higher Part D premiums. Part A premiums and Medicare Advantage premiums are not affected by these rules. Q: If I have a limited income, can I get help paying my premiums? A: For people with limited incomes and resources, the Part D Extra Help program covers all or most of their Part D premium, as well as other pharmacy costs. You can nd out if you qualify and apply online at www.socialsecurity. gov/prescriptionhelp or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE. Each state also has Medicare Savings Programs that cover Part B premiums for people with limited incomes. In some cases, these programs also cover other Medicare costs. To learn more, call 1-800-MEDICARE and ask for a referral to your local state health insurance assistance program (SHIP), or go to this website www.familiesusa.org/resources/ program-locator and click on your state. Q: What will happen to Medicare premiums in the future? A: Medicare premiums depend greatly on what happens to health care costs, speci cally Medicare costs, in the future. No one knows for sure if the recent slowdown in Medicare costs will continue. The early indications from the Medicare Trustees report are that the trend should continue for now, and that the 2014 Part B premium will be unchanged from 2013. For anyone with Medicare living on a xed income and thats most people this is encouraging news.Ron Pollack is executive director of Families USA.Understanding Medicare premiums Dear Savvy Senior, Are there any programs that you know of that help seniors with their Medicare expenses? Im 67 and live primarily on my Social Security, and am having a hard time paying my Medicare premiums, deductibles, copays and prescription drug costs. Need Some Help Dear Need, There are several nancial assistance programs that can help Medicare bene ciaries who are having a tough time paying their out-of-pocket health care costs. Heres whats offered, along with the eligibility requirements and how to apply. MEDICARE SAVINGS Lets start with a program that helps lower-income Medicare bene ciaries pay premiums and out-of-pocket costs for Medicare Parts A and B. Its called the Medicare Savings Program (MSP), and it has several different bene t levels for people with different nancial resources. At its most generous the program will pay your Part B premium and pretty much all your Medicare deductibles and coinsurance. At its least generous the program will pay just your Part B premium. To qualify for a MSP, the minimum standard set by Medicare, is an income under 135 percent of the federal poverty level, which at the moment works out to around $1,313 a month for individuals. Everything counts towards income, including payouts from 401(k) plans, pensions, Social Security, and help from family members. Medicare also allows states to impose an asset test, which can be as little as $7,080 per individual, not counting your house or car but counting retirement savings and bank accounts. But some states have made their MSP programs a lot more generous, with much higher income limits and in some cases no asset tests at all. And the program may be called something else in your state. To nd out if you qualify or to apply, contact your local Medicaid of ce call 800633-4227 for contact information. MEDICATION ASSISTANCE For help with your Medicare prescription drug plan costs, there is another completely separate program called Extra Help. To get it, youll need to apply through your local Social Security of ce. Depending on exactly how low your income is, the program will pay all or part of your Part D prescription drug plan premium and deductible, a hefty chunk of your copay, and totally eliminate the doughnut hole coverage gap. In 2013, individuals with an income below $1,436 a month, and assets under $13,300 can qualify for Extra Help. If youre eligible to be in a Medicare Savings Program, you will automatically qualify for Extra Help. But because the requirements are slightly different, even if you dont qualify for a Medicare Savings Program for Part B you might be able to get Extra Help for Part D. For more information or to apply, call Social Security at 800-772-1213 or visit socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp. GET HELP To help you nd out if youre eligible for these programs, use the National Council on Aging web-based tool at bene tscheckup.org. Youll need to fill out an online questionnaire that asks things like your date of birth, zip code, expenses, income, assets and a few other things. Once completed youll get a report detailing which programs you may qualify for, along with downloadable application forms and, in the case of Extra Help, allow you to complete your entire application online. The program even knows the specific MSP eligibility rules in your state. Or, if you dont have Internet access, contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), who provides free one-on-one Medicare counseling in person or over the phone. To locate your local SHIP, call the eldercare locator at 800-677-1116. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

Page 10B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 22, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comExploring charming Bruges, BelgiumBy LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsWhat if you could go back in time? Well, you can by simply stepping through one of Bruges original city gates. A compact Gothic city beckons; full of cobblestone streets and winding canals, old-world charm is waiting around every corner. Chartered in 1128, the city dates back to the time of Julius Caesar. Strategically located at the intersection of the north-south trade routes, Bruges achieved prominence quickly, along with Antwerp and Flanders. Trade guilds ourished here, and the city prospered. Originally connected to the sea by the Zwin Canal, by the 1500s the channel began silting in. In spite of numerous attempts to reestablish connections with the sea, eventually the canal failed. A decline in a population from 200,000 to 50,000 by 1900 resulted in an untouched historic city center. If chocolate is the rst thing that comes to your mind when you think of Belgium, you are not alone. Stroll past dozens of chocolate shops, widows overflowing with black gold. Chocolate in every conceivable form rows of ducks, plates of shells, perfectly round bon-bons encased in chocolate and smothered by assorted toppings; sample until you discover your favorite. Wander along the winding avenues and placid canals. Stop for a few minutes and relax at one of the many cafs. Savor steaming hot chocolate and crispy waffles smothered in clouds of whipped cream, a city specialty. Serving cocoa since the 17th century, the drink has been perfected here. Learn more about Belgian chocolates history at the Chocolate Museum. Nearby, housed in one of Bruges best preserved buildings is the Freitmuseum, which is dedicated to the story of the potato. After your tour sample delicious Belgian fries with an assortment of sauces. Shoppers enjoy browsing among the numerous gift shops. Famous for Belgian lace, most of what you see displayed is now machine made. But you can still see lace made the original way at the Lace Museum. It is hand-woven, just as it has been since the 17th century. For the same entry fee, explore the Jerusalem Church, next door. Modeled after the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, the dark interior seems macabre by todays standards. Marvel at well-preserved gothic bell towers, including the second largest brick bell tower in Europe. One, a 13th century landmark, now houses a municipal carillon comprising 48 bells. Listen as the many bells mark the passing of time, or if you are fortunate, stay for a concert at St Saviors Cathedral. Market Square is A UNESCO world heritage site; much of the medieval architecture is still intact, including the Belfry of Bruges, and the sh market. More picture-perfect buildings including Stadhuis Town Hall, and the Basilica of the Holy Blood surround the burg. These charming squares are a perfect stopping point. Horse hooves echo on the streets, boat motors hum as they slip quietly past, swans glide serenely on, and crowds of tourists amble by following their guides. Whether on foot, by boat, in a carriage, or by mini-bus, take the time to discover the simple pleasures of Bruges.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.
