Many a smile, warm greeting and hand on the back contributes to the centers strive toward providing quality health care. We strive to provide a personal touch to the residents and patients that we serve, he says. But treating patients like family isnt a hard thing to do, says Cascio, as there are a lot of relationships previously established amongst staff members and patients whether through blood relations or age-old bonds an apparent perk of living in a small town, close-knit county, he says. A lot of my staff are either related to each other or to the patients here, says Cascio. Or some of them just grew up as close friends with the patients or their families. Theyll say thats my aunt or auntie were not really blood, but in a way Im kind of related to them. Its just kind of a neat thing. According to Cascio, Eden Springs is the only licensed skilled nursing facility in Wakulla County and offers both short term and long-term rehabilitation programs. Cascio says Eden Springs is fully equipped to offer everything from physical, occupational and speech therapy to stroke rehab, pain management and home and work reentry training. I feel like were a valuable asset to the community, Cascio says. Evidence of his claim lies in the fact that Eden Springs is the third largest employer in the county and is capable of providing exceptional services and care with staf ng ratios that are much higher than the state required minimums. Not only that, Cascio says, but Eden Springs ratios are even high compared to the facilities in the area. It also boasts roundthe-clock registered nurses on duty at the facility and a full-time dietitian on staff. Were capable of providing a lot of healthcare services that are needed for our community, but that people are still going to Tallahassee to receive, he says. As part of a community that pushes the support of local vendors and businesses, Cascio says hed like to ask those in the area to consider the same philosophy when it comes to nursing and rehabilitation. The way we like to support the community by using local vendors and other folks, wed ask the same thing of them. Were a local provider. Cascio acknowledges that one of Eden Springs biggest challenges is its competition in Tallahassee and that being 25-30 miles from a major hospital has the potential to hinder them greatly. Turn to Page 2A By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net In a letter addressed to the board of county commissioners, the YMCAs Chief Volunteer Of cer Hugh Tomlinson said that, At this time, through our analysis, it is clear that operating the community center in a revenue neutral position will be impossible. Tomlinson also mentioned the recent political events that had unfolded and the significant criticism that the YMCA faced. He thanked the county for their consideration and expressed interest in the opportunity to serve Wakulla in the future. Since receiving that letter on Aug. 9, County Administrator David Edwards says staff has been working to keep things moving forward. Our plan as of right now is that were going to be bringing an agenda item before the board on Sept. 16 that requests a workshop, he said. Were going to be issuing a scaled down RFQ (request for quali cations) or RFP (request for proposals) for volunteer organizations to come and make a presentation at that workshop By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net The second no-swim advisory in just a little over a month has been issued for the beaches of Shell Point and Mashes Sands. As part of a program run across the state, the states beach water is routinely tested for enterococci bacteria once every two weeks. The level at which an advisory is issued is 105. According to Keith Lawhon of the Wakulla County Health Department, most recent tests showed Mashes Sands bacteria levels at 230 and Shell Points to be 160. The test is done against enteric bacteria because, Lawhon says, the species lives in the gut of warmblooded animals and is a good indicator of the potential presence of more dangerous bacteria species such as E-coli. Lawhon attributes the areas high levels to the onslaught of recent rain seen lately and that the waters will be tested again in another two weeks. If by then the levels have dropped below the 105 threshold, the advisory will again be lifted.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comFrom Page 1A A lot of the folks, even if theyre from Wakulla County, they end up wanting to stay in Tallahassee for their rehab, he says. So thats a challenge for us. If youre looking for reasons why Eden Springs is a viable option for incounty care, Cascio says to consider their exclusive services such as a courtesy vehicle service that is geared to help. A lot of our patients have spouses or other family members who may be elderly and cant get here to visit, he says. So whether you live in Wakulla, Leon or the surrounding area, we can come pick you up and drop you back off at home again. Nobody in Tallahassee is doing that to my knowledge. Eden Springs also offers services through a wheelchair van that offers the option of picking up new patients from the hospital or transporting current patients to and from appointments in Tallahassee. The thing is, says Cascio, is that Wakulla only really has general doctors, so to see a specialist, patients have to go to Tallahassee. In order to accommodate them, we provide that wheelchair capable van so that way we make sure our patients are making it to their appointments on time as needed. Another challenge that Eden Springs faces, Cascio says, is its common misconception with the previous Wakulla Manor. We are not Wakulla Manor. Anything that you might remember hearing about Wakulla Manor that is not us, he says, pointing out the upgrade of the facility through both renovations, service capability and, especially, quality of the staff. Were not just here taking care of long term needs, he says. With a licensed capacity of 120, the facility holds about 114 as they have converted many semiprivate suites into private ones for short patients receiving short-term care. As for recreation, Eden Springs has a few annual as well as daily features that contribute to its quality. The facility boasts a spacious courtyard equipped with a garden, fountain and even a small aviary. We call it the garden of life, says Cascio. Another outdoor area is designated for a special niche at Eden Springs. A lot of healthcare facilities are smoke free, Cascio explains. So we have a fenced in designated area outside where people can go and smoke if they want to. However, its not just for smoking. They call themselves the smoking community, he says of a group at the facility. They can go out there and play cards or games and we keep drinks and snacks out there for them. The facility is also currently gearing up for an annual event that is becoming a bit of a tradition at Eden Springs the senior prom. Cascio says what started out as a chance for residents to get dressed up and throw a party, has evolved over the past few years into different themes and ideas. Last year, he says, they wanted a luau theme and this year theyll be throwing a party that is mardis gras themed which seems fitting as a peak inside his gold and purple painted office exposes Cascio as a Louisiana native and an alumni of LSU. After working as the facilitys administrator for the past ve years, Cascio says his favorite part about his job is knowing that I have the staff that I know is going to treat each other, me and everyone here like family. He tells of staff members that, on their time off, offer to come and cut patients hair for free. He says a lot of the residents are living on small monthly Medicaid wages. So I have staff that will volunteer their time to come and do things like cut their hair for free. Its just little things like that.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Page 3A PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper. Special to The NewsWakulla County motorists who cross the Upper Wakulla River Bridge on Shadeville Highway will have to nd an alternate route for at least two weeks beginning in September. The bridge will be closed as contractor Southern Concrete replaces damaged pilings and xes the deck on the 40-year-old structure. Work is scheduled to begin the rst week of September and continue for two weeks. The construction time may be altered depending on the weather conditions. Barriers will be erected on the bridge to eliminate motorists traveling over it during the construction project. Wakulla County school students impacted by the construction project will receive a letter from the school district detailing temporary busing plans. The letters were to be sent home with students on Monday, Aug. 26 informing them of their altered bus routes and times. Six bus routes will be impacted during September to accommodate the detour and school times. Motorists are asked to use Highway 267, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Road and U.S. Highway 98 as alternative routes during the construction. Detour warning signs will be posted throughout the area. A planning meeting was held with Wakulla EMS, Wakulla Fire, Florida Highway Patrol, Wakulla County Sheriffs Office, Wakulla School District, Wakulla Public Works/ ESG, Emergency Management and the U.S. Postal Service to make arrangements to handle services during the time of the construction. Wakulla County regrets any inconvenience the construction project will cause, but state bridge inspectors would have required the bridge to be closed permanently without the construction project taking place. There will be no changes to your solid waste collection for the Labor Day Holiday on Monday, Sept. 2. All services will be completed on your normal scheduled day.Special to The NewsThe Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce Narcotics Unit arrested a 47-year-old Crawfordville man Tuesday, Aug. 20 in connection with the sale of marijuana during undercover operations, according to Sheriff Charlie Creel. Herbert Owens III faces four counts of possession of marijuana with intent to sell, four counts of sale of marijuana and one count of possession of narcotics equipment. Undercover operations involving Owens were reportedly conducted four times from March 2013 to Aug. 1 during which time Owens was allegedly involved in the sale of marijuana. On Aug. 20, detectives executed a search warrant at the Antler Run Crawfordville home where Owens was living. Owens was taken into custody during the execution of the search warrant. Detectives allegedly discovered items associated with the sale and use of marijuana including plastic baggies, an electronic scale, the remnants of marijuana cigarettes and a marijuana grinder. Owens was transported to the Wakulla County Jail without incident. A female at the scene was not charged. Owens remains in the Wakulla County Jail under a $20,500 bond.Upper bridge to close for maintenanceMan arrested on drug charges Herbert Owens III No change for Waste Pro pickup for Labor Day From Page 1A for their ideas as to how to run programs out of the community center. The request, he says, will be based on a one year trial period, after which they will take it from there as far as what they are going to do. At the last board meeting on Aug. 19, citizens to be heard included Lynn Artz and Jim Hilyer, who offered themselves as volunteers in spearheading the organization of community entities and leaders into a cohesive unit geared towards offering services at the community center. The board, especially Commissioner Jerry Moore, had seemed interested at the time. Commissioners Moore and Ralph Thomas had been the two opposing votes lately when it came to wanting to bring the YMCA in to run the community center. Both had been against for reasons that included competition with local businesses as well as, in the words of Thomas, the countys ownership of many valuable jewels already at its ngertips in the form of capable groups that could offer programs and services through he community center. Edwards said that since Artz and Hilyer had made their offer, he and his staff had met with the couple in conjunction with the youth coalition to discuss the matter and thats where the current plan had come from. Weve agreed to give the opportunity to the local volunteer groups who have said they can do this, said Edwards. We want to let them come together as a community, the county will give them their space and after a year well see what works and what doesnt. Also at the Aug. 19 meeting, commissioners had voted to approve the spending of funds to purchase gym equipment and to install air conditioning in the newly constructed portion of the community center. That portion, said Edwards, is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 1, which is also the date by which community organizations hope to have programs up and running. Edwards says the plan is that by next summer, recreational programs such as basketball, volleyball and more will be offered in the evening at the new gym. Were also going to start rental of the sanctuary portion of the building by November, if not sooner, said Edwards. The east building, currently being used as the Sheriffs annex will be vacated on Oct. 1, with construction scheduled to start at the sheriffs complex for a new annex facility. As for the YMCA pulling out of partnership with the county, Edwards calls it very unfortunate. We really wish they could have come in on it, it would have been a big plus, he says. Edwards also touched briefly on the housing programs as they relate to the county. As far as any plans to take the housing program back over, he says there are none at this time. According to Edwards, the county just nished settling accounts with nes that had accrued with the state during its last stretch in which housing was under the countys watch. Currently, theres really no need to take it back, he said. Meridian is doing all of our housing work and theyre doing an excellent job. Edwards said that housing money statewide and with federal government has uctuated throughout the years, which makes it hard to fund a small program when there are uctuating revenues without subsidizing from the countys general fund. Right now it just doesnt make economic sense to start up a program, he said.

In my opinion, this is not their best idea. In the tension between development and natural lands, deference should be given to extraordinary places. There is abundant land ripe for development in the county but other places best left as Mother Nature evolved them. Zero setback from wetlands would seem to be rapacious and an unnecessary hazard to our environment. Those county commissioners who propose or support zero setback should hold themselves to the standards of Caesars wife. That is, set aside pecuniary interest and do what is best for Wakulla and its people. Zero setback is a step in the wrong direction. Phil Cantner St. MarksBy MIKE MORGANFire ChiefA serious vehicle crash in Sopchoppy last Wednesday evening not only injured the occupants of the vehicle but I feel that some rst responders were placed at risk unnecessarily. Wakulla County Fire Rescue was alerted to the accident at 11 minutes after midnight. The 911 caller told dispatchers that there was an accident on Curtis Mill Road and two people were injured. The caller went on to describe the injuries as serious and gave information that led responders to believe they could be life threatening. Units responded from Sopchoppy Volunteer Fire Department and the EMS Paramedic Supervisor was dispatched due to the closest EMS unit being committed on a previous call. The EMS unit from Crawfordville responded as well as the on duty Engine Company from Crawfordville, all in emergency mode. While responding, additional information was relayed to the Supervisor and it was decided that an additional EMS unit from Wakulla Station should be sent and a Medevac Helicopter from Air Methods be readied for use. WCFR units arrived within moments and found the car pictured. Obviously there was potential for very serious injuries. Both alleged occupants were transported to the hospital. The Air Methods helicopter was used for one patient due to the location and self description by one of the injured party of his injuries. While this is the response all such calls get in Wakulla, I feel there was more danger than needed responding to this accident. When volunteer re- ghters leave their homes and families to do this job they are at risk. When on duty crews respond across the county using red light and siren they are at risk as well as the other traf- c on the road. When a helicopter responds to any scene there is an added risk for that crew as well as those around their landing zone. However in this case it was discovered the next day that the accident did not happen when it was called in to 911 but three and a half hours prior to that call. A passerby found the accident around 8:30 p.m. and was told that the occupants were ne and they did not need to call 911. That passerby could not see the vehicle damaged as it was far off of the road. The alleged occupants asked to use a cell phone and called for someone to pick them up at the scene. An investigator called to the scene after midnight stated he was told by the alleged occupants that they might have been at the scene for up to an hour before someone discovered the accident. If this additional information, about how long the call was delayed, is factual, it did in fact put our responders at risk unnecessarily. We pride on WCFR responding to all emergencies in a timely manner. All of our available on duty EMS and Fire units, as well as members from two volunteer fire stations, were used on this reported emergency, a true emergency occurring during this response would have suffered a delayed response. There are times when people are truly injured and do not realize at the time of the accident. There should be no hesitation to call for EMS in such a scenario. However all facts including when the injury occurred should be relayed to the dispatcher. If they would have simply stated the accident had occurred hours earlier we would have still responded but with the appropriate level of resources.Mike Morgan is fire chief of Wakulla County. Editor, The News: The taxpaying citizens of Wakulla County are once again watching the county commissioners quickly dispense of a problem without due consideration of their actions which may ultimately cost us all. The terms Contract Employee and Independent Contractor are used frequently by the Commissioners without clarity. I dont think they understand the difference. One is an employee of the county who has an employment contract, such as our county administrator. He receives a W-2 form. A contractor is on his/her own, as to hours and duties not speci ed by their contract. They bill the county for services rendered and expenses incurred. In reality, they are a consultant and receive a 1099 at year end. Employees who work under 30 hours a week are not eligible for bene ts. The instructions given to our county administrator, was to advertise for a part-time, 20 hour a week position as the Tourist Development Council cirector and use the county Employment Application process as a screening tool. This leads the applicant to believe they will be a county employee. However, this position will be an Independent Contractor paying $22,000/year. In other words, they want to identify and hire an individual using one policy then tell them they are really an Independent Contractor under another policy. This means they must have an occupation license, carry auto insurance, and liability insurance, and have their own equipment. Will we also offer them the county health insurance at their own expense? That would be like letting one company employee enroll in another companys insurance. Commissioner Ralph Thomas gave a very pointed speech at the board meeting on Aug. 5. He said, It is the commissions responsibility to assure all county policies are followed. If I am correct, then the BOCC has instructed the county administrator to violate county Purchasing Policies. Since the Personnel and the Purchasing Policies are administered by the same person, this situation should have been recognized as a con ict. AS A CONTRACT POSITION IT SHOULD HAVE GONE OUT FOR BIDS OR QUOTES. Not a single Employment Application should be accepted, reviewed or considered for this position, only bids and quotes should be considered. I am not so sure that this is not a breach of ethics. Charles Hickman CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: At the Aug. 19 Wakulla County Commission meeting, some county commissioners and citizens put forth extremely flawed interpretations of what the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance is proposing in order to continue local protection of our wetlands so vital to our local economy and welfare. The full text of the ordinance that the WWA intends to have placed on the ballot at the next general election is: Wakulla County, Florida Wetlands Protection Ordinance 10-16 as constituted on 7/19/13 is hereby adopted by reference and amended to include ARTICLE V. ORDINANCE MODIFICATION OR REPEAL. This Ordinance can only be modi ed or repealed by a referendum of the voters in Wakulla County as provided for in the Wakulla County Charter or by an unanimous vote of all ve Wakulla County Commissioner at a legally called Wakulla County Commission meeting. In addition ARTICLE IV. EFFECTIVE DATE. is amended to state: This ordinance as amended shall take effect immediately after passage. The WWA proposes to adopt by ordinance Wakullas present, in force, wetland ordinance and add conditions as to how it may be modified or repealed. Our proposal will restrict modi cations and repeal of the ordinance to: (1) a referendum of voters or (2) a unanimous vote of the Wakulla County Commissioners. It accomplishes nothing more or less than that. Statements that we are proposing to incorporate the current wetlands ordinance into the County Charter are de nitely incorrect. Our proposal will not change Wakulla Countys Charter in any way, shape or form. County commissioners and citizens have a right to disagree with what we propose. However, Wakullas citizens deserve correct information and facts in order to make up their mind. Wetlands, Wakullas Golden Goose, provide the nursery areas and food that sustains our sh and wildlife. It is the wetlands that are the backbone of our sport and commercial sheries and ecotourism industries. And it is the sightseers, shermen, ecotourist, and other visitors that wetlands attract that keep many of our local restaurants, shops, ling stations, etc. in business. Local protection of our wetlands needs to be continued to prevent our golden goose from being defeathered and plucked. Victor W. Lambou Chairman Wakulla Wetlands Alliance Editor, The News: Do we really need another apartment complex in Crawfordville? On Sept. 3, the Wakulla County Commission will be voting on a rezoning application to convert 9.73 acres from Agricultural to R-3. If approved, the property located on 319 just south of the Harvey-Young Funeral Home will be converted allowing for high density housing where 8 units per acre (77 units for this parcel) can be built. If rezoning is approved, the impact to our community and surrounding neighborhoods will be great. Not only will the increase in traf c through an already congested area affect all of us who travel 319, but the quiet lifestyle (that attracted many of us to Crawfordville) and property values for surrounding neighborhoods and homes will also be greatly impacted. This vote determines whether existing residents and their investment in Wakulla County are valued as much as the promise of future residents should this rezoning be approved. As one of the homeowners who will be left to deal with the impact (noise, lights, traf c and nancial loss in property values) should the rezoning be approved, I urge all of our county commissioners to consider the citizens who will be affected by this decision and vote NO on approving the application. Marc Edwards Crawfordville Editor, The News: The Wakulla County Historical Society has applied for a $50,000 grant to help with much needed renovations to the second oor of our Museum & Archives. The review of this grant will be on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at the R.A. Gray Building in the auditorium. We encourage any of you who can attend, to come and show support for WCHS. When they call our name, we will all stand and show our support. The reviews begin at 9 a.m. Some of us will carpool from the museum and we will plan to leave at 8 a.m. Please be at the Museum a few minutes earlier if you would like to ride with us. We appreciate your participation and support. Arlene Vause SecretaryWakulla County Historical Society SPECIAL TO THE NEWSWreckage at the scene that may have occured hours before a 911 call.
By HERB DONALDSONPalaver Tree Theater Company will hold an Audition Party on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Wakulla County Public Library. Although a monologue (or two) is requested it is not required. There will be short written pieces available for all to read and snacks to munch on as well. After all, it is a party right? You might recognize a few of the shows for this 2013-14 Season. Two were done as readings at the SCENE in WAKULLA Fest this past June. These two shows will be mounted as actual stage production for this season. The rst play, Wild- owers in the Median, is based on the true story of Agnes Furey and Leonard Scovens. Scovens was convicted of murdering Agnes daughter and grandson in a drug-induced rage. Years later, both Agnes and Leonard collaborated on the Wild owers in the Median book, based on their experiences and revolutionary idea of restorative justice. The play is derived from that book and is scheduled for a March 2014 production. A Matter of Seconds is by Wakullas own Herb Donaldson. The story centers on famed novelist, Carlos Fitzgerald, when he is shot dead at a book signing by an unknown assailant. His estranged family is in the process of dismantling the pieces of his life and legacy when issues of abandonment, betrayal, sexuality, and greed rise to the fore. This will be a February 2014 production. Switching gears: Have you ever wondered who owns Florida and why? The play, A Mania for Speculation, is set in modern-day St. Marks, and deals with a woman whose research of her familys Native American heritage, has led her directly to Wakulla County. With the help of a few locals, her familys past along with Floridas tantalizing history comes alive to depict what happened to Indian lands (her familys land!) after the Spanish departed the state. Mania is set for this coming November, and was written by local historian Madeleine Carr and Herb Donaldson, with the help of Brent Thurmond, Wakullas clerk of courts. This seasons WakullaStory presentation is about the assassination of the countys most beloved creature, an alligator named Old Joe. To date, his death is said to be the only unsolved murder in the county. This play is about a young boy who years ago, like many in the area spent hours at the Springs, marveling at Old Joe, lounging lazily on his special sand bank. The boy makes a pact with the ancient creature, said to have been more than 100 years old. Later, long after Old Joe has been killed and the young boy has become an older man, he begins an almost obsessive search to nd the culprit that did the deed, but comes a little too close for comfort. This production takes place in April 2014. This past years SCENE in Wakulla Fest was an all-out success, and will continue in June 2014. Palaver is currently looking for new scripts for SCENEs staged reading events. The goal is to workshop the scripts so that they can be mounted for production next season. If youre a writer and have a play to put forth, Palaver welcomes it. Other things in development include productions by and for young adult audiences. Palaver is looking to work with 15-20 students/young adults to develop and produce two plays this season that focus on issues that Wakullas young people feel to be important. In order to build fresh, original, and educational presentations not necessarily educational to the young people as much as to those adults who often misunderstand / misinterpret them Palaver needs the input, expertise, and vision of the next generation to help bring these works about. Young musicians are also encouraged to participate. And, on a nal note, it is important to mention that none of our Palaver Tree productions are perfect. We bring this up because when people in the county reach out to Palaver for the possibility of being in a production, its usually in the rst paragraph (and most de nitely by the second) that they talk about never having done theatre or acted before. It doesnt dawn on them that they are the exact people that Palaver is seeking. The palaver tree is based on an old African tradition where the people in the community gathered under the shade of an old tree to discuss the communitys issues and to exchange ideas. If someone felt they were not as important, as re ned or articulate enough to address the community, a griot a storyteller or musician, an artist would speak on their behalf. In short, our message is this: You are already a part of the Palaver Tree Theater family because Palaver is all about the community itself.

SNYDERFor my wifes birthday (I am not allowed to mention which one) I surprised her with round trip tickets to her family reunion in upper New York State. Out of courtesy to her, I elected not to include myself in her little vacation. After all, it is her family and that is just the kind of man I am. I must say I was looking forward to a week in the house by myself, where I could be the absolute boss. Nobody to tell me what to do. Nobody to tell me where to go. For a week, I would be the king of my castle; the captain of my ship; the pilot of my spacecraft. Actually, I need more than one week to do all of these things. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage deserves time off and away from Yours Truly. All year long, she works hard and most of the time has her hands full trying to untangle me from one foil after another. Lately, it has developed into a foil-time job. The day finally came for me to take her to the airport and see her off. As I kissed her goodbye, my thoughts roved back to the week that lay before me as a freelance husband. All the way back from the airport I played my Barry Manilow CD. I like Barry Manilow because he cant Smile without Me. Believe me, a smile creased my clock all the way home. One difference between men and women, or maybe I should say husbands and wives, is the notion of cleanliness. Wives have the idea that cleanliness is next to godliness. If true, ours is the godliest house on the planet. Even God must wipe his feet before coming into our home. As a man, I see absolutely no connection between cleanliness and godliness. I do my best thinking, not to mention praying, in the midst of clutter. If godliness is related to happiness, then I am in heaven when I am in the midst of hodgepodge the podgier the better. Along about Friday afternoon I was absolutely in heaven. The house was a complete wreck and I could not have been happier. About this time, an incident developed that brought me to my senses. I was about ready to take a shower when I noticed the soap and shampoo in my shower were gone. I knew reserves are somewhere in our house but for the life of me; I could not put my ngers on any of it. This is by my wifes design. Notwithstanding, and I was standing in my birthday suit, I needed to take a shower. Then a brilliant idea struck me. Since my wife has not been home all week, the shampoo and soap in her shower should be in great supply. Snatching my towel from my shower, I headed for hers. One thing I noticed in my wifes shower was the variety of bottles. Not wearing my glasses, I could not read the labels on any of them. However, I was not here to read bottles, but to take a shower, and so I disregarded the labels. I turned on the shower, adjusted the water temperature and began my shower. I reached for the nearest bottle, which I assumed was shampoo. After dousing my hair with a generous portion, I began scrubbing my head. I noticed, however, no suds. I grabbed another bottle and repeated the procedure with the same results. After using 17 bottles, I finally found one that produced suds. I remember thinking to myself, what does my wife do with all these bottles in her shower that do not do anything? Nevertheless, in a moment I forgot the whole incident, stepped out of her shower and toweled off. I made a cup of coffee and settled into my easy chair to watch a little television. As I sat there, I noticed a strange fragrance. This is the difference between men and women. A man enjoys strange smells. A woman, on the other hand, enjoys fragrant aromas. I smelled a fragrant aroma with a strong tinge of fruit about it. It smelled as if someone had brought me a bowl of mixed of fruit. I knew for a fact, there was no fruit in the house, so this fruity aroma puzzled me. I got up and walked around the house looking for this bowl of fruit. No matter what room I was in, I could smell the fruit. It was the strangest thing I ever experienced. Finally, I went back to my easy chair and cup of coffee not knowing where these fruity fumes were coming from. Some mysteries are tough to solve. Then something hit me right between the eyes. The fruity bouquet was coming from me! I took several healthy sniffs and discovered I smelled like a bowl of fruit. I could not understand this phenomenon. Then I remember the bottles in my wifes shower. I went back to investigate and discovered my wife had bottles of fruity concoctions of every variety. A verse from the Bible came to mind. But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. (Philippians 4:18 KJV.) The only fragrance worth dwelling on is a life well pleasing to God.. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Since the 2008 economic crisis, millions of Americans have been hit hard in most aspects of their lives their homes, their jobs, their personal lives. I was one of them, says Noelle M. Meade-Izzi, whose busy lifestyle in the corporate world, combined with the market crash and other negative forces, had been crushing her sense of well-being. Somehow, that was all changed by the tiniest bird known to man a hummingbird I eventually named Artemis. She was building a little nest right next to my balcony. Witnessing her small yet heroic efforts to complete the nest for her chick and then raise it to maturity, all on her own, helped nurse me through a healthy and spiritual transformation. Meade-Izzi, author of The Hummingbird That Answered My Hearts Calling (http://noellemeade.squarespace.com) offers tips for those who are open to experiencing lifes everyday miracles Finding inner peace3 tips to get out of the grind, into well-beingTurn to Page 7A
From Page 6A seeing the extraordinary within the ordinary-in the midst of the stressors and strife that seem to inundate our lives. Get in touch with your inner hummingbird, she says. Find your Artemis. Meade-Izzi was at a low point in her life when she saw the little hummingbird a species so tiny, many people never notice it. Nature is everywhere and abounds with beauty and inspiration you just have to look for it. Dont fear the quiet. Waking up before youre ready, making the coffee, rushing to work and getting inundated with complaints, getting stuck in traf c on the way home and, oh yeah, you have to stop at the grocery store Rinse and repeat on Tuesday. But workdays dont have to be a grind! Many of us have gotten so accustomed to incessant chatter in our lives from our mobile smartphones to whats inside our own heads that we dont know how to respond and appreciate silence, Meade-Izzi says. There are many ways to silence the chatter, which offers surprising renewal and fresh perspectives, she says. From meditation to yoga to simply enjoying the sound of rain on your roof, make time for quiet. Focus on empathy. It was the focus on something extraordinarily small and completely other than herself Artemis that helped Meade-Izzi nd her deeper self. Empathy helps us hurdle the very tall walls of our ego and puts us in the shoes of someone else and what their experience must be like. In turn, we gain perspective on our own unique lives and nd them more manageable. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Page 7AEdna H.

Wells Special to The NewsFor everyone even people in an ideal relationship with a lifelong partner there will be times when you are alone, says serial entrepreneur Susan Alpert. For 46 years, Alpert lived the dream with her husband, Larry; they had a happy home, children and thriving careers. When Larry died, Susan experienced the ultimate aloneness, fearing her happiness would never return. No, it wasnt easy to recover from the loss of a loving partner at my side, but I did, and learned how to be very happy on my own. Its possible at any stage of life, says Alpert, author of Driving Solo, (susanalpertconsulting. com). Ive spoken to those who have been divorced or separated from their spouse or they just havent met that special someone yet and they, too, feel a sustained loss similar to a death. But, as Ive learned, going solo can be an unexpected and ful lling experience. Alpert reviews important markers along her journey to nding happiness again: Taking Control. Whether youre widowed or emerging from a breakup, you have to reevaluate and assess where you are and take steps to move forward. If you were married and youve been off your game for a while youve neglected a stack of mail, been out of touch with friends, etc. start making progress one task at a time. If youve been left with papers and bills to handle, create a system, perhaps a digitized one to restore order. If your girlfriend or boyfriend left you, its time to recognize and respect your self worth. Consider getting into good physical shape with an improved diet and a schedule for training. You might even consider a professional reboot anything that gets you focused on something constructive can help you move on. Remember, youre responsible for yourself. Its you who has to take action. Ease the Throttle. While its essential to take proactive measures, its not wise to try to do it all at once. In some areas you should throttle back. Aim for achieving a regular sleep schedule stress often impacts ones ability to sleep well, and current research is nding the heightened negative side effects of insuf cient sleep. Also, take a break while awake, youll think more clearly, have more energy and be prepared for the next steps, whatever they may be. Take a deep breath, get outdoors. Even a short walk is an excellent stress-reliever while providing moderate exercise. We all know that its important to eat balanced meals, but youre human and thats not always possible. You may be tempted to indulge in junk food, alcohol and other drugs while in emotional pain, but this ultimately makes life harder. Hint: try to include different colored items on your plate, thats an easy way to eat well. If youre grieving, know that eventually, youll feel better. The initial stages of her grieving were new and terrible. People said the feeling wouldnt last forever. My response? That isnt doing me any good right now, is it? They hadnt lost Larry, I did, she says. Immediately, Alpert knew things would never be normal again life would be different. It was going to be a long and painful process. She had to go through the experience of loss. Until then, she could expect to yo-yo between emotions, her therapist said, In time, I got my health and strength back I found a reason to get out of bed each morning and although unexpected and different, I have a wonderful, exciting and joyful life today, she says.

I see such great potential in young people. For 25 years, Thomasson and his wife served in the Youth for Christ ministry, helping kids and teenagers grow in their faith. His new book, Tears in The Rain (published by AuthorHouse), teaches readers about the importance of helping those in need and giving back to the community. When the intent of the heart is pure, things are not important, life is! says Thomasson. It often takes a broken heart to feel the joy of life. Tears in The Rain compiles Thomassons personal diary entries as he leads a youth mission trip to the West Indies. On the island of St. Vincent, Thomasson takes a group of teenagers to the remote village of Sandy Bay where they spread Gods word and help the villagers grow and prosper. Life without electricity and modern conveniences is jarring for the teenagers, but it challenges them to rise above and work together to make a difference in the villagers lives. The book catches the joy and changes of living through serving people in need, Thomasson explains. It gives us a better perspective of what should be important in our lives.

Separate entrances for children and adults open to lobby areas carefully designed for each age group. In the childrens lobby, visitors can enjoy an iPad bar preloaded with kidfriendly games and videos, while a designated sick kids room offers a restful space for children with contagious conditions. Other features of the center, such as an easily navigable oor plan, adjustable lighting in each treatment room, and luxury mattresses with pressure redistribution technology and builtin scales, enhance care for all patients but are especially bene cial for seniors. Children and seniors have unique medical and emotional needs. What may not constitute an emergency for the average adult might be alarming for a child or persons past a certain age. For this reason, the physicians and nurses at the Emergency Center-Northeast have been specially trained in administering emergency care for both populations, said Emergency Services Medical Director, Sam Ashoo, MD. In addition to having expertise in the care of children and seniors, all the centers physicians are Board Certi ed in Emergency Medicine. And, with the centers color-coded uniform system, patients gain the ability to clearly distinguish between clinical and non-clinical staff. A patient tracking system also puts useful information at visitors fingertips by providing family members with real-time updates on their loved ones. Meanwhile, an onsite lab, radiology suite and pharmacists help expedite patient care. Located just south of the Thomasville Road and I-10 interchange on Metropolitan Boulevard, the center brings 20 additional patient beds to the region on opening day with space planned for a total of 36 beds as the community continues to grow. The 45,000-square-foot facility is the rst freestanding emergency center in Tallahassee and represents a more than $22 million dollar investment in the regions emergency care. The Emergency Center Northeast has been designed to care not only for patients but also for the environment. With many environmentally sustainable design elements, the center will be the rst freestanding emergency center in Florida to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification standards for green design and construction. While the Bixler Trauma & Emergency Center retains its designation as the regions trauma center and remains the primary location for treating severe emergencies like heart attack and stroke, the full-service Emergency Center Northeast is equipped to treat all nontrauma emergencies.County residents attend Women Can Run!

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 Senator Bill Montford and Representative Halsey Beashers were joined by Representative 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 Senator Nelson. A panel of distinguished individuals including Congressman Steve Southerland; Jon Steverson, Northwest Florida Water Management District; Dan Tonsmeire, Apalachicola RiverKeeper; Shannon Harts eld, 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 flows for the Apalachicola River over the last two decades. The U.S. Army Corps was represented by Colonel 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-ChattahoocheeFlint 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. Governor 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. Governor Scott stated 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. On Monday, Aug. 12, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that the condition in the Apalachicola Bay had resulted in a fishery disaster for Floridas oysterman, allowing them to obtain relief funds. Emily Menashes, National Marine Fisheries Service testi ed 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. Commissioner Howard Kessler attended this important, epic event and stated We need the water ows to keep our wetlands healthy to provide nourishment so our seafood industry can be restored and our ecotourism can thrive. Additionally, Sheree Keeler, Wakulla County Governmental Affairs Director also attended and can be contacted at (850) 926-0919 ext. 705 for additional information, and has provided links to related information on the Countys website at: http://www.mywakulla. com/departments/intergovernmental_affairs.phpLeaders discuss the effects of water ows on nearby areas Loretta Guess is pleased to announce the engagement and upcoming marriage of her daughter Connie Rochelle Guess to Edward Clayton Brogdon.

What My Southern Heritage Means to Me By Katie Register Great food, family values, tradition, pride in state and country, these are just a few of the things that come to mind when I think of my southern heritage. Many people dont understand this lifestyle we live because they lack a belly full of home cooking, a great family to share it with, and the sense of pride that southerners have. I would not be the person I am today without having the values I carry today within my school, my church, and my community. We have been taught survival for as long as this country has been around. During the War Between the States, we had more challenges because the War Between the States was fought on our land. We had a hard time producing goods and distributing them for pro t. Gaining the knowledge of how hard my ancestors worked for what they believed in, makes me want to work hard despite the challenges I face in my life. I have worked hard for the grades I have so I may move past high school and go to college. My goal is to gain an education so I may have a career that enables me to support my family and give back to my community. My southern heritage has also taught me great pride in my country. From a young age we are taught the Pledge of Allegiance and we repeat it with respect for the soldiers who have lost their lives for the freedoms we have today. We remember them in a moment of silence every day at school. It also gives me a great sense of pride to know how many people in my senior class are going into the military to show how much their country means to them. Now, for my favorite part, family and food. We all know that we enjoy family gatherings for the great home cooking. Every time we have a family gathering, you can smell the food and hear the sounds of my loved ones voices. My family doesnt really have many traditions, but theres always food, talking and laughter. When I have my own family I want to have many family traditions. Small ones like having Sunday lunch after church, to big ones at Christmas time. I want my children to have the same type of Southern pride and Southern values instilled in their lives. I hope to leave the legacy of pride in country, community, family and tradition, not only in my high school, but in my life.Wakulla grad wins UDC scholarship
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Page 9Aeducation news from local schools School Special to The NewsSuperintendent Bobby Pearce and the Wakulla County School Board applaud the dedication, the pure motive and energy these employees give to Wakullas students every day. Lou Ann Crum, Wakulla County School District Employee of the Year, serves as an administrative secretary in the Curriculum and Instruction Department. She provided a back-to-school presentation to all classi- ed employees at Wakulla High School on August 9, 2013 about the importance of every employees job in the school system. Crum has served the District for seven years and cites the most enjoyable part of her job is the people. She adds, Whenever asked, our employees are right there to lend a hand with whatever the task may be. Its nice to work with people who can make you smile with a kind word or gesture and who will take your mind off the chaos and stress that surrounds us daily. Crum attended Clover Park Vocation School in Tacoma, WA and studied computer technology. She also attended TCC and studied Computer Aided Drafting Design (CADD) and graphic design. Chief Academic Of cer, Beth Mims, has served the District for thirty-one years and was selected by her peers as the District Administrator of the Year. She started her career as a rst grade teacher, pre- rst teacher and alternative education teacher. She has also been the Curriculum Director and Pre-K Principal. Mims loves interacting with teachers and discovering ways to better meet the needs of students. She adds, I am constantly amazed by the dedication and expertise of the Wakulla Instructional Staff, and I am challenged when I see them working with students in classrooms. Developing curriculum with them is invigorating due to their attention to detail and the solid questions they ask. It is easy to see that the needs of the students are forefront in their thoughts. Beth Mims has attended TCC, FSU, and Tennessee Temple University. She has a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, post graduate work in Religious Education and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership. She is certi ed by the Department of Education in Early Childhood, Elementary Education, School Principal and Reading Endorsement.Employee, district administrator of the year recognizedSpecial to The News Florida is one of 45 states to fully adopt the Common Core State Standards, which outline what students are expected to know in math and English at the end of each grade. The standards also put more emphasis on reading and writing in other subjects. Five things we learned: 1. Common Core Will Turn The Keys Over To The Students Common Core emphasizes that students know the underlying concepts, and not just the formula for how to reach an answer. The intent of Common Core is that when students graduate high school they are prepared for college-level courses or could land a job that pays enough to support a family. One way teachers are being trained to develop those skills is allowing students to work in groups of different sizes. 2. But Teachers Have More Freedom Too It seems counter-intuitive, but teachers said theyll have more control over class lessons when they let students take charge. It also includes fewer topics than Floridas current standards, and teachers said they will have more exibility over the course of the year. They wont have to rush through topics just to make sure they tick off all of them on a long list of items. 3. Some Common Core Training Had Little To Do With Common Core The Hillsborough County session included tips that seemed to be less about Common Core and more about tips and tricks to create more engaging lessons. School districts had to do large-scale teacher training to prepare for Common Core, so why not also show teachers how to use technology they have at hand to modernize lessons? 4. Some Districts Did A Better Job Of Using Common Core Techniques Than Others 5. Teachers Seem Enthusiastic Its asking the kids to do so much more than what they were doing before, she said. And it asks teachers to do more as well, were kind of stepping back and letting them take control.StateImpact Fla. names ve things learned about Common Core this summerRiversprings Middle School AVID program inducts 7th and 8th graders Special to The NewsOn Friday, Aug. 16, Riversprings Middle School held their AVID induction ceremony.

The future of Floridas success depends on a public education system that prepares every student for success in college, a career and in life, said Governor Scott. I want to thank all of the attendees for sharing their time and passion in focusing on our shared goal of providing Floridians with a quality education system that supports students, teachers and parents. The Summits agenda, a previous release with a list of attendees, copies of presentations and a live webcast are all available at www.fldoe.org. The four topics that summit members will discuss are: 1. State Standards. Continuing to raise the bar on education standards, by including an emphasis on critical and analytical thinking, to drive continued improvement by Florida students; 2. State Standard Assessments. Ensuring the assessment that replaces the FCAT will accurately measure the more challenging standards that will be taught to our students, provides meaningful performance information to our students, is cost effective, results are timely provided and we do not unnecessarily become intertwined with the federal government. 3. School Grades. Improving our education accountability system to further ensure transparency and fairness while providing meaningful and useful information to our parents and educators about how our students and schools are performing; and 4. Teacher Evaluations. Understanding how our teachers are evaluated, ensuring transparency throughout the process and using a fair system to identify, recognize and reward our highly performing teachers. Today was the first day of a three-day session. Florida Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart welcomed dozens of attendees invited by Governor Scott, Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford along with the help of statewide education leaders and officials. Attendees represent a wide range of Floridians including parents, teachers, principals, superintendents, the Legislature and business groups. Hearing so many great ideas from so many people committed to a common goal of helping students succeed is a wonderful start to this summit, said Commissioner Stewart. I look forward to listening to all Floridians dedicated to ensuring a bright future for each student. Today, Florida Department of Education experts presented overviews of the four topic areas before participants met in smaller groups to share visions of how Floridas education system should continue to evolve. The next two days will provide a forum for more specific ideas to be discussed. All Floridians can submit ideas and comments to educationsummit@ fldoe.org and will be shared with attendees.Governors historic education accountability summit kicks off ADULT ADMISSION $12 DOORS OPEN ONE HOUR PRIOR TO SHOW TIMEwww.discoverfantazia.comCRAWFORDVILLETUESDAY SEPT 10Showtime: 7:00PMWakulla Co.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsMore fun shooting wheel guns a.k.a. revolvers, part twoBy MARJ LAWWheel guns, or revolvers, come in many calibers. Last time, we talked about the .22, .22 Magnum and the .38 caliber wheel guns. This time, Id like to discuss the Taurus .357 #605 Magnum which is can be loaded with .38 or .357 Magnum rounds, the Smith & Wesson Governor which can be loaded with .45 ACP or .410 shotgun shells or .45 long Colt rounds, and the Holy Cow! Freedom Arms Model 83. The Freedom is the hunkiest gun Ive ever shot. One of our local gun enthusiasts let me shoot it with a .454 Casull load. No wonder going to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office Range is such fun. People who go there are so generous in sharing their weapons and what they have learned. Wow. So, lets go right to the Taurus .357 Magnum. Ive got a fondness for Tauruses. This one is snub nosed, stainless steel, and it holds ve rounds. Snub nose means the barrel is about 2 inches long and the gun can be used as a concealed carry weapon. The sights are xed; a square U-shaped rear sight and a ramp front sight. A neat thing about this Taurus is that you can load either .38 rounds or .357 Magnum rounds. Depending on the round choice, the gun handles very differently. Because of the stainless steel mass, the gun is smooth with a .38 round. I gave the pull a 1.5 and the kick a 2.5 on the 1-5 scale with 1 being the lightest and 5 the heaviest. The grips that come with the gun are rather short. You can buy aftermarket longer ones. The .357 load is altogether different. The trigger pull is still around a 1.5, but the kick! Yikes! The kick jumps to a 4. Watch out for the tender webbing between your thumb and fore nger if you shoot .357s in this gun. The Smith & Wesson Governor is light for its size and holds six rounds. It shoots .45 ACP, .45 Long Colt, and .410 shotgun shells, and you can actually combine these three cartridges. Amazing! I shot the .45 ACP load and gave this S&W a 1.5 for the pull. Its a light pull and, like many revolvers, it has no safety. The kick was about a 3.5 and I nursed that tender area between thumb and forefinger after shooting. The Governor kicks. With the .45 Long Colt load, I thought the kick was about 4 and the trigger pull was still a 1.5. Now the .410 load is different. Whomp. Its got a 5 for a kick. Be ready. Hold on to that grip. Joe gave me a .45 ACP wadcutter target load to try. This kind of load is fun to make nice round holes in targets, and is lighter than normal loads. It also made the kick much less. With the wadcutter load, the kick went down to a 2.5. Sights are fixed on the Governor with the square U-shaped back and a tritium dot front sight standard. Last Wednesday, one of our local gunners shot at the pistol range beside the Shoot Like a Girl group. It sounded like a cannon was going off. You could feel the vibration in your teeth! Well, he was shooting the Freedom Arms Model 83 ve-shot revolver with a 7.5 inch barrel. The thing can shoot a 300-grain bullet at 1500 feet per second. Its made for big game hunting. Think bears. Boars. Cape buffalo. Big! He offered to let me try it and cautioned me several times that the kick would be very substantial. I set my feet and held tight to the smooth wood grip. Tight. Blam! Even with squishy earplugs and earmuffs too, the gun makes great big noise and shock all over your body. I even hit the target! What an experience! On a scale of 1-5 for kick, lets see Ill give it a 12. And for letting me shoot, Ill give the owner a 12 too. Thank you thank you thank you. To sum this up, wheel guns give a pretty rm kick. When you shoot a wheel gun, get your hands in a good grip. Plant your feet. And if you ever have the opportunity to shoot a .454 Casull load, tighten that grip twice, and place your feet in a rm stance. Here comes the cannons boom. You might never shoot it again, but youll always remember the experience. Marj Law is the former director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful who has become an avid shooter in retirement.HOME ON THE RANGE SPECIAL To THE NEWSThe Freedom Arms Model 83 is a ve-shot revolver with a 7.5-inch barrel made for hunting big game. From FWC News Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) biologists are asking the public to report sightings of three rare snake species: Florida pine snake, southern hognose snake and short-tailed snake. Citizens can help with research on these species by reporting sightings online. Reports from the public will aid us in determining where these snakes live and their status, said Kevin Enge, FWC research biologist. All of these snake species have been petitioned for federal listing. The three species are found in dry, upland habitats and spend most of their time underground. They are only occasionally seen moving along the surface or crossing a road. For each report, the citizen is asked to provide the location where they saw the snake and the month and year the observation occurred. Researchers are also requesting citizens to submit photos of the snakes, when possible, to verify identi cation. Reports can include live or dead animals. Although these species are nonvenomous, citizens should avoid handling or disturbing them. For more information about snakes and to submit sightings to the FWC, visit MyFWC.com/Conservation, select How You Can Conserve, and choose Snakes under Living with Wildlife.

Id been there in the summer of 1975, and now, 37 years later, I was back. Whoopee! Id left the Big Bend area of Florida namely Wakulla County, my home spent a few weeks with my Patti in New Jersey, and then we ew nonstop from Newark, N.J. to Seattle. We crossed the width of our country amazingly at 35,000 feet, ying almost 600 mph in just over ve hours, which put me in the extreme northwest of the U.S. at the opposite ends of America, not including Alaska, from Florida. Unbelievable! Now instead of mostly Slash Pines we stared up at Douglas Firs, Sitka Spruce, Western Red Cedars, Western Hemlocks and other temperate rain forest trees in the national parks we visited. Many of these trees in the old growth forests had diameters of six feet or more with the first limbs visible perhaps 100 feet above our heads. The trunks stood straight as power poles awesome! Instead of warm sandy beaches held together by sea oats, the beaches along Washington States Paci c Coast are partially covered with rounded somewhat attened river rocks, which were tempting to try to skip in the pond in front of the shore at the well known Ruby Beach. The rugged Olympic Coast is noted for its many Sea Stacks, jutting eroded rocks from the headlands found at various distances from the beach. Patti was eager to do some photography during the early morning exceptionally low spring tides when many of the Sea Stacks and other rocks were exposed and one could walk around many that were normally wave washed. At this time many Giant Green and Aggregating Anemones, Ochre Star sh, Black Turban and Dogwinkle Sea Snails, Mussels, Limpets, Barnacles, Algae, etc. were exposed. Another, usually hidden world, allowed visitors to enjoy a brief visitation. Now I have always been a wuss when it comes to wet and cold and the Northwest coast of Washington is a good part of the year locked in sea fog or a marine layer, and it is cold too, not to mention the roaring surf. So while natives were walking around the beaches in T-shirts and shorts, not me! Some were even barefooted! They must be nuts, I thought. When I held my hand in a tide pool, in a matter of seconds my hand started hurting as if in a pan of ice seriously! Finally on our last morning during extreme low tide Patti was delighted to have the sun break through the fog and light up everything beautifully from the Ochre Star sh to the lovely Giant Green Anemones. Ruby Beach in sunlight went from the somber to the glorious. Next we went to the famous Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge on the south shore of Puget Sound where sand, gravel, rocks and huge surf tossed drift logs lay along a ve mile spit of land built up over time by strong currents. The spit extended ve miles into the sound ending at a lighthouse. I had tried to walk the spit years ago, but then could see nothing due to fog. And, upon returning this time at dusk, I was again frustrated for the wind howled, sand blew in my face, and the spit was covered in a cold dense fog. The next morning, however all had changed. The weather presented a calm atmosphere with clear air and plenty of sunshine. Fantastic! We walked the spit. I was able to identify some seabird species I had not seen for years and get a good look at a Harbor Seal with its spotted coat porpoising in the surf. In the 37 years since my rst visit to the area the Dungeness Spit had become known, and since we were there on a Saturday with perfect weather, we were shocked to see hundreds of other people also walking the spit. The groups of Harbor Seals and shorebirds no longer found the spit to their liking. We were disappointed as I especially hoped to have a real show of marine mammals not just my species. The next day I became ill from something I apparently drank not fun on a trip. I was sick for three days, but pretty much carried on, going by ferry to Victoria, British Columbia. There, after meeting Pattis sister, Betty, we took in the famous Butchart Gardens, where the millions of colorful ower blossoms painted the once rock quarry in a terrestrial rainbow of an artists palette, On another day we visited the nearby Butter y House, where the advertisements promised 3,000 ying butter ies. To our disappointment there were fewer than 100 individuals. Another day we signed up for a whale watching trip when we learned that the sighting of an Orca pod was guaranteed. Then on the way to the dock where we boarded a 35 foot zodiac we learned that the guarantee had changed. We would see not Orcas. We were told that possibly we would see Humpback Whales. For Patti and Betty that was not good because they have seen numerous sighting of t his species, plus some the Humpbacks most interesting behaviors such as bubble feeding. We learned that due to the lack of recent rain the rivers were low, causing salmon to hold off migrating to their spawning areas. This resulted in the Orcas staying further at sea since the salmon werent concentrated. They had not been seen in the bay in a month. It was a real let down to the three of us. Also the seas were rough, plus the operator of the zodiac knew only two speeds, stop and go All Out! By the time we nally got to see a few Humpback Whales, Patti was seasick and NOT a happy camper! On the way back though the seas were smoother plus we swung by a lighthouse and had a good look at about 40 Stellers sea lions and a few California sea lions too. Both were new to me, as well as the Humpbacks. Sea Lions are eared seals and can bring their rear flippers up under their bodies and lunge at someone making them quick and dangerous, whereas the Harbor Seal (found both on our east and west coasts) are earless and cannot jerk their hind flippers up under them to gallop as the sea lions. Instead they move like an overweight sunbather, or like a huge fat grub and are considered less aggressive. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Page 11Aoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsA return visit to Washington State 37 years laterIt was a good shing season overall though its a little tough now Weymouths Wanderings BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHIt is hard to believe that Labor Day is Monday and even harder to believe that Monday night Florida State plays its rst football game of the 2013 season. Where does time go? Seems like I was just thinking I sure would be glad when the temperature on the ats hit 68 degrees. I must say it was an extremely good shing season though now it is pretty tough. The water still looks old coffee and there is more grass oating this year than I have ever seen. I tried to sh Sunday afternoon for a couple of hours but it was hard to cast without coming back with a wad of grass wrapped around your grub. The grass isnt too terribly bad on the rst part of the rise because the outgoing tide has taken most of it offshore. But by the time the tide gets nearly high it has all come back. Capt. David Fife shed last week with a friend from Tallahassee and they caught two limits of reds, released four other legal sh and also had three trout over 19 inches. He shed the rising tide around the oyster bars out of Spring Creek. He was using live nger mullet and mud minnows on the bottom. David uses a 2/0 Kale hook, foot and a half leader and -ounce slip sinker above a small swivel. I have typically used a lead head and attached the minnow but have gone to Davids method and seem to be getting more bites plus the minnow swims up off the bottom. Butch Wiggins and Buck Grice from Blakely, Ga., shed Friday around Piney Island and caught and released a bunch of nice reds. I was shing about 500 yards away from them on another bar when I got a call. It was Butch telling me they were catching and releasing big reds on every cast. They were fishing a Gulp on the bottom. He also said earlier that he had released a black drum that probably weighed 40 or 50 pounds. Since they dont use live bait Im sure it was also caught on a Gulp. I was fishing with Steve Lewis and his son Austin and Steves brother Terry from West Palm Beach. We had our limit of reds in the box when they called but all were caught on live minnows and shrimp but none were real big. After the last two lousy charters I had though I felt like it was a good day. We also had one nice trout and released about eight or nine smaller sh. This was the day after the full moon and I saw the most mullet and bait in the water than I have seen in many, many years. There were probably six or seven dolphin in different areas busing through the mullet and we had eight or 10 mullet swim right into the boat. Dr. Jim ONeil of Tallahassee went out Saturday and shed in 14 feet off St. Marks. He told me they had six flounder and one nice trout that they caught using live shrimp on the bottom. I have heard they are catching trout, ounder and sea bass off the Econ na in 7 to 12 feet of water and that plenty of nice trout are being caught around Keaton Beach in 5 to 7 feet of water shing live pin sh under a Cajun Thunder. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council approved a recreation red snapper season from Oct. 1 until the quota is met which they expect will be around the 21st. The limit is still two per person and they must be at least 16 inches long. There is a zero daily bag limit for crew and captain on vessels for hire. Well, this will be a busy weekend on the water since Monday is Labor Day and folks will have a three-day weekend. This will be the last time most people will use their boats until next spring which doesnt bother me at all. I tell you this to be careful out there and watch out for the other people, especially going out and coming in on the St. Marks River. Remember, you are responsible for you wake so slow down around Kayaks and smaller boats. I was just watching the interview with the sherman who treaded water for 24 hours after being thrown out of his boat off the coast of Citrus County. He was reaching for his lifevest as a rogue wave hit his boat and threw him out. He was fishing by himself, not wearing a lifevest and out in a boat that he had been having motor trouble with. I do all of the above except the last. I have recently started wearing the suspender lifejacket that in ates if you get thrown in the water t hough I dont wear it religiously, as I should. Larry Hess who shes both inshore and offshore out of Shell Point wears his from the time he leaves his dock until the time he returns and he always shes by himself. Point is, if youre gonna sh alone wear one of the suspender type life vest and always make sure you boat is running properly. Someone was looking after this fellow. Remember to know your limits, be careful out on the water and have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day Weekend. Good luck and good shing! From The DockBY CAPT.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com After the last weeks storms, once again Saturday morning started with the promise of rain and thunderstorms. But that didnt stop members Dave Rabon, Fran Keating, Tim Ashley and Duane Treadon from heading out on patrol in Apalachicola Bay and St. George Sound. Thank you to Duane Treadon for sending the following article. After conducting a pre underway check, something that all boaters should do to insure all safety equipment is on board, a nal check of the weather showed that the storms were just off shore to the west and moving slightly to the west. Heading out the crew plotted a course to the west ever mindful of the dangers storms can bring when on the water. Waves and heavy rain are always a concern for crew and boat but on this day lightning was more the worry. By staying in the bay and sound area the crew was able to maintain cell phone coverage and pull up critical on time weather information and radar images. Using the pre-programed National Weather Service weather channels on many VHF radios is also a good source of up to date local weather information that can be used to keep boat and crew safe on the water. With rains light and waves only 1-2 feet the crew continued west past Bob Sikes pass. Though the storm was moving slowly west, as indicated on radar and weather reports, the crew noticed an increase of electrical activity as lighting seemed to be moving closer. This was a good reminder to the crew and all that lighting can, and often does, occur many miles form a storm. With the increased area lightning the crew replotted their course to head east and to safer waters. A valuable rule that all boaters should follow, head to safer waters when possible. During their transit eastward, and safely away from the lightning activity, the crew took time to practice several critical skills. One exercise involved the throwing of a life-ring overboard as a simulated person overboard. The crew had to react quickly, rst having a spotter keep an eye on the person in the water (PIW). Next sounding the danger signal to alert area boaters ( ve short blasts of the horn). Then with the spotter calling out directional commands to the person driving the boat, the boat was positioned for a pick up of the PIW. All of this needs to be completed within one minute of the rst call out of, Person Overboard! Afterwards the crew practiced what is called a vector search, which is also sometimes called a Victor Sierra search. In this search pattern a vessel completes a series of equilateral triangle patterns covering an area where a last know position of a person in the water is reported. A nal exercise had the crew competing to see who could heave a line closest to a person in the water. Again the life ring was tossed overboard and used as a target. Crew took turns with the heaving line, a 50-foot line with a oat ball on the end, tossing it to the life ring. While all got within a foot of the life ring, oating 25 feet away, one member, Dave Rabon, placed the heaving line right on the ring in a perfect throw. From what appeared at first light to be a challenging day to get out on the water, the day ended well with everyone learning and re ning their skills!

We know this because our customers are occupied with family, school and the adjustments those require. The summer beach fun is set aside over the next month or so as thoughts of hunting deer replace the challenges of hunting sh. The threat of squalls over the Gulf gives way to the threats of September hurricanes. These annual cycles waif through our center like the changing tides and we embrace them fondly. But I face the onset of Social Security! Our six months of hyperactivity will now give way to a slower pace, where projects placed upon the back burner will again see the light of day. My new space in the back will become a reality. The hydro station and fork lift will nally get that much needed upgrade, the tank farm will be moved safely away to the back of the lot, and Travis will get his new repair facility. For the next six months we will dream about next the summer season and what we may do differently. Join the debate! A good friend of mine stopped by last week, an old-timer like myself, who has been underwater as long and at many of the same dive sites as me. I always ask how his diving goes. Between thoughts of knee replacements, signi cant weight loss and his heart attack, he is thinking about cutting back on the diving. He is after all still an open circuit diver. We share past delights, old dive equipment, and sea stories often. I encourage him to stop by more often. One day I will get him back to the future. His near daily visits are not near enough, as he too is still employed trying to pay off school debt for his kids. At least now we will have more time to talk. When I was in my 20s, I was told I would hang up my ns when I reached 40. Of course I was breathing air from a surplus CO2 cylinder and thought my 50 dives50 hours a year underwater was average. By the time I was in my 30s, I had dedicated scuba cylinders and all the conveniences we attribute to the sport today, enabling me to average 100 dives-100 hours underwater a year. By the time I reached my 40s, we had discovered Nitrox, which reduced the fatigue of diving. I found I was logging 130 dives-150 hours underwater a year. I happily sailed through my 40s with ever increasing use of specialized gasses, such as trimix (helium blends) and high oxygen for decompression diving diving deeper and further into caves. But age began its demoralizing effect in my 50s such that carrying twin 100 pound cylinders a mile back into a cave was no longer fun. Over a decade ago, I decided rather than retire my ns, I would go back to the future and embraced the rebirth of rebreathers. In my late 50s and early 60s, I continued to increase my diving activity, exceeding 200 dives and 400 hours underwater a year. Wakulla Diving Center became my vehicle to share this journey, dedicated to training the future underwater enthusiasts of our world. Next January we will partner with the TCC Environmental Institute to train future underwater professionals. I continue to help young and older divers transition from open circuit to closed circuit (rebreather) diving as I did over a decade ago. For us old divers, the future in diving is bright. I hear Curacao, where I will present a paper in October, has warm awesome diving. Perhaps my next decade will be in dive travel! Age only requires more technology and determination.PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWSCoast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon UnderwaterWakullaBy Gregg Stanton PATROL IN APALACHICOLA BAY: Clockwise from left, Dave Rabon prepares to practice with the heaving line, underway with Rabon and Fran Keating, and Tim Ashley standing watch.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Page 13ABy MAURICE LANGSTONSenior Center DirectorWe had our rst drumming circle at the Wakulla Senior Citizens Council on Thursday, Aug. 22. We must have had 25 to 30 seniors in the circle. This has been an activity I wanted since last February when I rst learned about the healing and healthy effects of a drumming circle. Our Drumatic Instructor, Kent Hutchinson, has been drumming since he was 8 years old. He retired from the State Legislature with over 32 years in government service and now travels from place to place performing and presenting drum circles. While the seniors thought it was a wonderful time beating an African drum (made in Florida) I looked deeper than the surface and noticed some interesting points. I had people with Alzheimers connecting with other people in the circle; connections that had never before been made. It wasnt that their Alzheimers had disappeared but it had been harnessed and even focused for one hour. The instructor spoke of losing his loved one, not to death, but lost her to Alzheimers. He said, The drum was the last and only connection that she could make. As I looked around the room I saw no depression, no worries were allowed and for once no one complained of pain as drumming is an analgesic. The various beats caused endorphins to ow, a natural pain killer in our bodies and no one expressed pain for the hour of drumming they enjoyed. It was a healing experience for some of the participants. There was no stress on faces, anxieties left and tension could not participate in the drumming circle. Drumming was making these seniors relax and rejuvenation was seen upon their countenance. A tingling was taking place in their bodies, perhaps a feeling, a vibration, and actual communication was taking place while no one spoke a word. An auditory loop was being made, a mystical connection was accomplished. Feedback through drumming was not only dished out but was received by everyone in the circle. The seniors were expressing themselves through a wooden drum, with a goat skin hide stretched across the top. Also while they drummed they listened to others expressing themselves. This was perhaps the most amazing thing Ive seen since Ive been here. In a drum circle everyone is speaking, everyone is heard and each persons sound, though individual, made up a whole or completion. We didnt need to ask the seniors how they were doing, how they felt, we didnt have to discuss the issues going on in their lives, we just joined them and became as them; young again. If this was not a therapy session I wouldnt know what to call it! Also, we experienced community within a circle. I actually felt a sense of teamwork for a common cause, everyone doing the same thing for everyone else. The collaborative effort was recognized and accomplished. I think the drumming circle had a dual power: First, perhaps it recon gured brain activity and brought calm and focus to people who were sometimes distracted or preoccupied by memory loss or other maladies, and second, the drums promoted a rhythmic social bonding. Its true the drumming started out with the individual but somewhere within the hour they all became a cohesive group with a single aim. Amazingly we ended up being a drum orchestra under Kents direction. Each senior walked away from their drum feeling better about themselves. For the rst time in a long time they felt they had been a part of something new, young, creative and vibrant. A deeper still connection was made within each senior. Drumming awakens the subcortical levels of the brain. They penetrated below conscious thought and inhibition to the purely physical level. And for 60 minutes a primal sense of movement in life had been restored. Some scientists say that drumming can reignite and retrain the brain after a stroke. I saw that today in the unseen rhythms of the drums. The rhythmic cues caused a part of our brain to re that possibly has sat idle for much too long. A drumming circle is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. From the shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental and spiritual health. To me this never was about a drumming exercise. It was to be a therapy session, filled with fun, rhythmic noise and not allowing the seniors to know just how therapeutic it had been for them. Rhythm based events: Enhance psychological and spiritual well-being; Enhance physical well-being; Enhance social relationships; Enhance sensory awareness and physical dexterity; Improve self-esteem, self-confidence and personal development. At the end of the day we at the senior center provided a form of health bene ts for seniors who remained seated the whole time during the session. This is something they not only can do but want to do. This is an activity for those who are not ambulatory to participate in. We need this in our nursing homes, rehab facilities and, yes, even hospitals. Our seniors were genuinely and positively affected as they felt the vibrations of the drums. I saw smiles, laughter, hands open and close, memories returned and one senior in the back of the circle got up and was dancing to the rhythms. It was a good day at the senior center. I believe new nerve pathways were discovered in our senior citizens today. A ring took place in the minds of people with Alzheimers as the beat found ways around the tangled protein bundles, through the plaques built up due to the disease. Perhaps some of the Alzheimers patients learned new skills today in this hour of power behind the drum. Im resolved to have this drum circle once a quarter here at the senior center. I havent seen a revival like this since I was a young boy in church. Am I saying it was spiritual? On some level it was and the language of the drums is understood by everyone. And, oh yes, the rain that fell so hard at noon today in Crawfordville is compliments of the drum circle at the Senior Citizens center. Mike McCall on the evening weather forecast that day made the statement that no one knew why the rain came in as fast and as early as it did.

In 2011, the latest year for national statistics, there were 9,878 fatalities on Americas highways in which drunk drivers or motorcycle riders were involved. That works out to about an average of one fatality every 53 minutes. Labor Day holidays are particularly dangerous for encountering drunk drivers. During the Labor Day holiday in 2011, 138 people were killed nationwide in crashes involving drivers or motorcyclists whose blood alcohol concentrations (BAC) registered at least .08 or higher. It is illegal in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to drive drunk (having a BAC of .08 or higher). Thats why local law enforcement agencies such as the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce are banding together across the Nation to get drunk drivers off our roads by aggressively conducting the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. This years campaign will run from mid-August through the Labor Day holiday Aug. 16 through Sept. 2). Our message is simple and consistent: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Our strategies and tactics are also simple: Be visible, be vigilant and let local motorists know that if they drive drunk, they will be caught and they will be arrested. High-profile crackdowns like the Labor Day enforcement campaign work. Research shows high-visibility enforcement can reduce drunk driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. Local law enforcement agencies are continuing to commit wholeheartedly to ghting drunk driving in their communities, not only during holidays, but all year long. In 2011, drunk driving crashes (involving drivers or motorcycle operators with BACs of .08 g/dL or higher), accounted for 31 percent of all motor vehicle crash fatalities for the year. Young adult drivers 18 to 34 years old are especially at risk. Over the Labor Day holiday in 2011, 42 percent of young drivers killed in motor vehicle traf c crashes were drunk. SAFETY TIPS Here are some simple tips to help motorists and passengers keep safe this Labor Day holiday period and all year long. Plan a safe way home before you start the Labor Day festivities. Before drinking, designate a sober driver. If youre drunk, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation. If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact your local law enforcement immediately. If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while drunk, be a friend and take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.

The state-of-the-art vehicle is designed for trafc enforcement, traf c safety and educational purposes. The Tahoe has 50 emergency lights to provide better visibility on the road when tracking down vehicles and it has a siren that is designed to vibrate the ground so that it draws attention even if someone cannot hear the siren noises well. Sheriff Charlie Creel has nicknamed the vehicle Darth Vader while Sgt. Mike Helms of Special Ops who drives the vehicle has given it the nickname of Black Mamba after the venomous African snake. DOT awarded 10 grants across the State of Florida to communities like Wakulla County that have traf c enforcement needs and road fatalities. The grants provided vehicles and motorcycles. Sgt. Helms said the vehicle can stream live video to Smartphones as well as send still photographs taken to any division within the WCSO. The vehicle gives the WCSO a report of everywhere Sgt. Helms has been during the day and allows him to videotape traf c stops. The vehicle also allows the sergeant to map areas where calls of service come from while also tracking crime statistics based on the calls. If the sergeant is called to a speci c location to provide traf c enforcement the vehicle is capable of sending an e-mail to the WCSO letting the agency know how many times the targeted area has been patrolled. We are pleased to be able to add this very special vehicle to our eet at no direct cost to Wakulla County taxpayers, said Sheriff Creel. The Tahoe is being used to keep drunk drivers off the road during the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over national drunk driving campaign which began Friday, Aug. 16 and continues until Monday, Sept. 2.New WCSO vehicle from grantSPECIAL TO THE NEWSSheriff Charlie Creel, Undersheriff Trey Morrison and Sgt.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com This weeks pleasant and noticeably cooler morning are the first official notice summer 2013 days are coming to a close. There are still hot humid days left in the year, but there number is dwindling as the hours of sunlight gradually shorten and the autumn equinox approaches. The folks at the Old Farmers Almanac have released their predictions for the winter of 2013-14, and it is not good news. They are predicting a harsh and cold winter, and even residents of Wakulla County will be paying higher heating bills. The human residents have the option of putting a little extra money aside each month to pay for those higher heating bills. But plants, birds and bugs of Wakulla County are preparing even though the knowledge is instinctive. The late summer bloom of wild owers is in full swing. Partridge pea, Cassia fasciculata, is blooming proli cally in North Florida. Traditionally considered a weed, recent years have seen a growing appreciation of these plants. Partridge peas typically grow in thick clusters with full sun and are about three feet tall. They are covered by yellow blooms in the waning days of summer and serve as a seasonal multipurpose niche for local wildlife. Partridge peas are an excellent native nectar source for honeybees and other insects dependent on this energy supply for their existence. In years gone by beekeepers would move hives into close proximity to these plants. The industrious honeybees compete for the nectar and use it to build honey reserves for overwintering the hives. The heavy pollinator traf c assures the return of this annual the next year. Quail and turkey populations take advantage of the thick foliage and blooms as well. The height and density provide excellent camouflage, especially for young, inexperienced birds unaware of the many predators lurking nearby. Through the action of honeybees and other pollinators, partridge peas are high-volume seed producers. The seed which does not find lodging under the thick mat of leaves and other organic matter becomes a food source the quail, turkey and other birds. Partridge peas are also a plentiful food source for caterpillars. The tender tantalizing leaves are easy picking for the late season insects which will return the courtesy and serve as pollinators in the future. Human use of the partridge pea has varied over the years. It has had multiple uses in folk medicine preparations, primarily the leaves being used as a naturally occurring laxative. Given the toxic qualities of the plant, the cure was sometime worse than the disease. Livestock producers, as a group, work to minimize partridge peas in grazing areas because of its toxic potential to mammals. Because any bird passing by can drop a seed, the effort is an ongoing project for herdsmen. Partridge pea plants have been uses for erosion control. The quick growing plants with a thick root mat and the ability to flourish on marginal soils make them a natural choice this important application. Nature preserves and hunting clubs now purchase partridge pea seeds in an effort to establish an attractive habitat for game bird populations.

By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net Wakulla High Schools football stadium was jam packed Friday night with spectators who seemed ready and eager for the start of football season. But they werent the only ones who came prepared. Head Coach Scott Klees says he was happy with his teams performance in their preseason game against the Marianna Bulldogs. We played very well, he said. And I was happy that so many people got to play. Sophomore quarterback Feleipe Franks started the game and didnt take long to get settled in. With just under seven minutes still left in the rst quarter, Franks connected with Keith Gavin in the end zone for a touchdown and a successful eld goal put the War Eagles up 7-0. Towards the end of the quarter, the Bulldog offense began to push back but, as expected, Wakullas defense came out hitting hard and making plays. In the second quarter, turnovers on downs happened for each team as the Bulldogs failed to complete a pass in the end zone, putting the War Eagles on Mariannas 38. With 9:18 left in half, Malik Thomas earned a rst down followed by a pass completion to Bryan Nichols. Antonio Morris then made a beautiful catch near the sideline for another War Eagle rst down. A couple of failed attempts found Wakulla in a fourth-and-11 situation where they decided to go for it. As they were unsuccessful, Marianna got the ball on the 38 and, with four minutes left in the rst half, the Bulldogs Teon Long showcased his speed with a run down the eld for a touchdown tying the score at 7-7. A series of fumbles came after as Wakullas Ethan Davis fumbled on a punt return that was recovered by Marianna. The Bulldogs then had a fumble of their own that was recovered by Wakulla, but a quick series without a rst down led the Eagles to punt. Marianna fumbled the kick, however, a previously established muff rule by coaches ensured Mariannas retention of possession. Coaches had agreed to the rule, which stated that if the receiving team never gained control of the ball, possession stays with them, due to the game taking place in the preseason. Wakulla did manage to force another fumble, though, where they took over with a rst and goal. Two incomplete passes put the team at third down, where Gavin made a catch but was unable to make it to the end zone. Wakulla opted for a eld goal, which put Wakulla ahead 10-7 at the end of the rst half.Turn to Page 2BSection B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Looking to Seminoles season openerIn the Huddle, Page 3BWEEK IN WAKULLAPage 4BOff the Eaten PathPage 12B sports news and team views SportsFOOTBALL CROSS COUNTRYWar Eagles win preseason By PAUL HOOVERWHS Track Coach With the opening of the of cial high school cross country season just around the corner, 24 members of the 2013 WHS Cross Country Teams attended the Miller Landing Madness 5K run that was held at Phipps Park north of Tallahassee on Saturday, Aug. 24. This race is conducted primarily as a nal pre-season tune-up for the local cross country teams. There were 236 nishers in the race. Fifteen local boys and nine girls toed the starting line to nd out where they were at in their training and how they stacked up with other area schools. When the dust settled, the boys team, the Wakulla Mantis Shrimp, and the girls team, the Wakulla Flying Squirrels, both placed second to clubs from perennial cross country and track 1A powerhouse Maclay. The rst ve girls actually tied with the Maclay team, with the tie being broken by the sixth place runner. Local track star and WHS senior Madison Harris, who is running cross country for the rst time this year, showed the eld that she can successfully step up in distance and still be a dominant force by being the second place female nisher overall and the rst place high school female. She covered the rolling course in the excellent time of 20:13, 38 seconds ahead of the next high school competitor. Returning senior Margaret Wiedeman, consistently one of the top runners in the district, ran a strong, controlled race, nishing in 22:01 as the second place local nisher and third place high school female. Younger sister Lydia Wiedeman wasnt far behind nishing in 23:00, as the fth place high school female. Rounding out the top seven nishers for the local girls were Connie Lewis (25:10), freshman Haleigh Martin (27:00), Savanna Strickland (27:37) and freshman Emily Lawrence (27:49). Freshman Bryce Cole led the way for the local boys covering the course in 19:01 and nishing seventh overall and fth in the high school division. He was followed by Lane Williams (19:51), Alan Pearson (20:03), Mitchell Atkinson (20:10), Travis Parks (20:43), J.P. Piotrowski (21:30) and freshman James Story (21:30). Cole, Williams, Pearson and Atkinson all placed in the top 10 male nishers in the high school division.

Then, again, with two minutes left in the quarter, Marianna established a fourth-and-goal position from the 17 yard line and a successful kick put them up 13-10. Mariannas lead wouldnt last long, though. In fact, that would be the last time Wakulla would allow them to score. The Eagles scored again with 33 seconds left in the third, but a failed attempt at a two-point conversion put the score at 16-13 going into the fourth. The nal score of 24-13 was earned with three minutes left in the game as the War Eagles scored another touchdown and eld goal. Im happy with the way we played, said Klees, adding that even some JV players got in on the action later in the game. We still need to improve in every aspect, he said. But we were able to evaluate a lot of people to see where they are going to t in the program as well as in the opener.

FSU is actually competing again for championships. And the 2013 season shouldnt be any different. Not after the Seminoles went 12-2 last year, punctuated by the the schools first ACC championship in seven seasons and rst BCS bowl since 1999. The media and coaches also appear in agreement when it comes to the preseason rankings. FSU is ranked No. 11 in the Associated Press preseason poll and No. 12 in the USA Today sports preseason poll. Fisher also remains positive despite the fact FSU lost 11 players to the NFL. The group includes firstround selections EJ Manuel (Buffalo Bills) at quarterback, Xavier Rhodes (Minnesota Vikings) at cornerback and Bjoern Werner (Indianapolis Colts) at defensive end. Fisher also overhauled his staff in the offseason and hired six new assistants. He has a new defensive coordinator in Jeremy Pruitt, who won the last two national titles as Alabamas defensive backs coach. While Fisher says there will be no offensive coordinator in title, he has three new assistants on offense. We will tweak and turn, were learning, Fisher said. The infrastructure of our program and how we do things wont change right now. Yet, change is in the air. While the Seminoles will have plenty of experience overall, there will be new starters at quarterback, kicker and all along the defensive line (although experienced backups return there). And fans should see a new look on defense, which is expected to feature more blitzing and attacking than a year ago. We have the least amount of starters back in the ACC, Fisher said. But we also have more junior and senior starters than we did a year ago. Even so, all eyes are on quarterback Jameis Winston, the redshirt freshman who recently beat out Jacob Coker in a race that Fisher insisted was very close. Winston was the presumed favorite after an electrifying performance at FSUs spring game in April, but he and Coker, a third-year sophomore, competed nearly through the end of fall camp before Fisher made the call. Its a great choice but its a very tough choice, Fisher said. I dont think either one would be where he is without the other. I truly believe that. Winston, a two-sport star who played baseball for FSU earlier this year, also has been a walking sound byte off of the eld, known for his developing larger-than-life personality. I love putting smiles on peoples faces, Winston said during the teams recent media day. The worst thing is a rainy day with no laughs. When its a sunny day, everybodys smiling and stuff. But on a rainy day, people want to be dull. Theres no reason for that. So I try to make everybody smile, laugh. Every day is going to be a good day at Florida State. Fisher, of course, is looking for good days on the practice field from his new quarterbacks. I think both guys will continue to progress, but I want to see who can stay consistent, Fisher said. The new starter is expected to be challenged immediately. A favorable schedule would appear to benefit the Seminoles, but they open the season on Labor Day at Pittsburgh. FSU has an open date before the Oct. 19 showdown at Clemson, which will likely decide the ACC Atlantic. That game kicks off a tough three-week stretch that includes visits from N.C. State and Miami. Fisher, despite his winning ways, will also have to prove himself. FSU has gone 31-10 in Fishers three seasons, a successful transition from coach Bobby Bowden. But FSU has struggled in games it was heavily favored, losing ACC games to N.C. State and North Carolina in 2010, Virginia in 2011 and nally dropping a 16-point second-half lead at N.C. State in 2012. At the ACC Kickoff in July, FSU wasnt even selected to win its own division in the ACC behind Clemson. The ACC also continues to strive for success. Until Florida State beat Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl last season, the ACC had won just one BCS bowl game since 2000. Meanwhile, the Southeastern Conference has captured seven consecutive national titles. And for much of the last decade, the ACC has struggled to win high-pro le nonconference games, whether it be against the SEC, Big 12 or anyone else. Fisher said that has to change before people outside the conference will start offering respect. I do think it is very important, said Fisher, who is 3-1 against the SEC since he took over the program. You need to win them. Theyre out there. If you want people to think differently, you have to do something you havent done.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Page 5BBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Aug. 23 With the idea of a special session on self-defense laws having been quickly dispensed of last week and no education of cials leaving, the capital began to drift back into its normal summer mode: little news and more chatter about the next election. In this case, most of the elections are still more than a year away -though voting in former Rep. Mike Fasanos Pasco County district will get underway in a couple weeks. Meanwhile, the Democrats first attempt at a statewide candidate in the 2014 campaign imploded under the weight of his formerly mismanaged nances. And Jim Greers name once again popped into the news, providing a reminder that the former Republican Party of Florida chairmans former deeds loom over former Gov. Charlie Crists expected run for his old job, this time as a Democrat. Perhaps preparing for that challenge, Gov. Rick Scott vocally promoted a set of issues that would help him with the conservative wing of his party, with Treasure Coast residents and potentially with moderate voters who will decide whether he or Crist is living in the Governors Mansion come the summer of 2015. NOT ALLS WELL THAT ENDS FOR BRASWELL If there was one sentence that Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant might like to take back from her time leading the FDP, it was probably one contained in an Aug. 15 press release about Allie Braswells candidacy for chief nancial of cer. I am thrilled that Allie Braswell is running for Floridas CFO, because hes exactly the kind of leader we need in Tallahassee, she gushed. Four days later, Braswell the head of the Central Florida Urban League was out of the race. His abrupt departure Monday followed reports in The Florida Times-Union that Braswell had led for bankruptcy in Orlando in 2008, after having done so twice in South Carolina in the 1990s, though he said the second ling in South Carolina was related to the rst. I have, at times, faced challenges in life that have not met with the outcomes I have desired, Braswell said. I take full responsibility for my actions, and apologize to my supporters. ...Running statewide is a daunting challenge for any candidate; as a political outsider, I have now learned that I underestimated how my campaign would affect those I care about most. Republicans could hardly contain their glee, setting up a page to list eight things that lasted longer than Braswells campaign Kim Kardashians marriage topping the list complete with animated web pictures and humor. To back a candidate in charge of Floridas nances without vetting that candidates handling of his personal nances shows either a high level of incompetence or a new level of desperation for Allison Tant, said RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry. Democrats, meanwhile, tried to quickly put the mess behind them. We advised Mr. Braswell to slow down so he could better prepare, party spokesman Joshua Karp said. He was very eager to announce, and its clear now he was unprepared for mounting this kind of campaign. Democrats appeared to be having better luck in a special election for House District 36, the Pasco County seat that Fasano vacated to take the county tax collector position. The seat is the only one in GOP-friendly Pasco where Democrats outnumber Republicans in voter registration. Amanda Murphy, a Raymond James vice president, announced that she would run for the seat as a Democrat in the Oct. 15 race. Democrats worked to unite behind Murphy while Republicans faced a three-way primary between Bill Gunter, James Mathieu and Jeromy Harding. THE RETURN OF JIM GREER, ONCE AGAIN Despite serving an 18-month prison sentence for money laundering and theft, former RPOF Chairman Jim Greer cant seem to stay out of the news. On Monday, The News Service of Florida reported that Greer tried to get a gambling regulator red in 2009, two days before the veteran state worker was to resign, according to court records. At the time, Greer who was hand-picked for the RPOF post by Crist was party chairman and getting paid $7,500 a month by the owner of the Mardi Gras Casino in Broward County to be a consultant for entertainment and hospitality regulatory issues. Greer later pleaded guilty to the money laundering and theft charges in connection with a scheme in which he created a company and then steered party business to it. But the latest revelations come from a case involving the quest for a quarter-horse permit near Homestead, which could open the door for more slot machines in South Florida. The company Greer was working for was one of the three loudest voices opposing South Florida quarter-horse permits, according to Florida Administrative Law Judge R. Bruce McKibben. McKibben in an Aug. 6 recommended order said the Department of Business and Professional Regulation didnt do anything wrong by denying a permit to Ft. Myers Real Estate Holdings, a company trying to get the permit for the venue in Florida City, near Homestead. The permit, if issued, would allow a card room and possibly slot machines. But the court documents and interviews with the players reveal a marked shift in the states handling of permits after Chuck Drago, Greers close friend and godfather of his oldest son, became secretary of the agency and after long-time DBPR Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering Director Dave Roberts was ousted. Within a week after Greer demanded that Roberts be red, Drago ordered deputy secretary Scott Ross to terminate the regulator, Ross testi ed in the case. Drago denies being asked by Greer to get rid of Roberts, targeted by South Florida tracks angry over the quarterhorse permits and other issues. Nobody asked me to have Dave Roberts leave. That never happened, Drago said. If nothing else, the case dredged up Greer, who could become an embarrassment for Crist if the former Republican governor runs again next year. Greers lawyer Damon Chase, in addressing the gambling issues, claimed Greer got his orders from Crist. Suffice it to say, Mr. Greer served at the pleasure of Charlie Crist during that time. Mr. Greer was steadfastly loyal to Charlie Crist and always followed instructions consistent with Mr. Crists agenda. Any involvement Mr. Greer would have had in this story would have been at Charlie Crists express direction, Chase said in an e-mail. SCOTTS WEEK Scott, meanwhile, spent his week in a urry of activity that dealt with policy but could also bolster his run against Crist or whichever Democrat emerges from the partys primary. Scott announced he would float $40 million next year to speed completion of a federal project intended to clean river water on the Treasure Coast, something quickly endorsed by Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart. The governor wrote that inaction by the federal government to maintain the Herbert Hoover dike system around Lake Okeechobee has resulted in a need to relieve stress on the system through water releases. A day later, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that it would reduce water releases from Lake Okeechobee in the coming days as the lake level has subsided amid drier conditions. Scott also joined the Cabinet in lambasting potential privacy violations and identity theft under part of the federal Affordable Care Act that creates what are known as navigators. The healthcare law, often known as Obamacare, is anathema to conservatives, particularly the tea-party activists who fueled Scotts rise in 2010 from littleknown health-care executive to governor. Scott said the federal government needs to provide assurances that proper background checks will be in place in hiring the navigators and their assistants, who are expected to help people through the paperwork in signing up for health coverage. But Leah Barber-Heinz, spokeswoman for Florida CHAIN, a patient-advocacy group, called the claims by Scott and the Cabinet members another outrageous attack on the federal program. In a more moderate pitch, Scott announced Thursday that he w as calling a three-day summit in Clearwater that will bring together political, business and education leaders. The summit is expected to address some of the highest-pro le education issues in the state, including the states standards for student learning, the tests those students take, the grades assigned to schools and how teachers are evaluated. Floridas education accountability system has become a national model, but we are at a critical point in our history, Scott said in a news release announcing the summit. Our students need and deserve a quality education that emphasizes critical thinking and analysis. Our teachers and schools need our support as we continue to compete nationally and globally in preparing students for success in college, career and in life. STORY OF THE WEEK: Allie Braswell, the rst Democratic candidate to enter a 2014 statewide race with the backing of the party, withdraws after reports emerged showing the chief nancial of cer hopeful had previously declared bankruptcy. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: One reason things arent changing fast enough is theres no anger, theres no outrage in this room. Unfortunately, the people that would be outraged and angered are dead. Pat McCabe, a foster parent and Guardian ad Litem, during a town-hall meeting about an epidemic of deaths in recent months that has rocked the states child-welfare system. WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)A Dem drops out and Greer drops back inBy SLIM RANDLESThe evening was one of those that come back to you time after time, year after long year. It comes back and whispers of how good life can be when youre well fed, enjoying life, and a good friend shares the front porch with you on a summers evening. It was that way with Doc and Steve the other night. Doc thought he might have to do a scienti c paper on the sopori c effects of ice tea, fried chicken, and corn on the cob. As long as it didnt take any effort. So when this huge meal had been bullsnaked down, the two grinning friends came out to the porch to watch the sun go down behind the trees along Lewis Creek. The air had that orange and russet glow, and the breeze, that little one that caresses the neck, came slowly down from the hills and made their shirt collars wiggle ever so slightly. It was like taking a dry bath in paradise. Doc sidled up to one of the porch posts and gently tested it to see if it could hold the extra weight he was carrying with that meal. It stood ne, so he leaned against it seriously and looked out on the evenings warmth. Steve, who was enjoying having a fine meal that someone else cooked for a change, leaned against the post on the other side of the steps. And then they just stood quietly, watching the day make beautiful skies as it ended. The shadow on the ground foretold the presence of the circling bird. Doc and Steve paid no attention at rst. Then a few minutes later, it was joined by two more circling birds over Docs house. Buzzards, Steve mumbled. Yep, said Doc. They circled some more. I think one of us should move a little said Doc. Move? Well to let them know you know. Steve sighed, then glanced over at Doc. Flip you for it. Saying Huh? and missing words can make you look old.
