Y Y See page 13A See page 13ARemembering 9/11By JANICE EAKINSpecial to The NewsDave Reynolds, or as he is fondly known Farm Share Dave, kicked off this years bulk donations with a sleigh of 12 pallets containing pillows, cleaning products, sweaters and lost and found clothes from Disney World. This is a wonderful way to kick off Wakullas Operation Santa and we appreciate the support Farm Share provides Wakulla families, said Bruce Ashley, President of Wakulla County Coalition for Youth (WCCY). Dave provided a truck load of non-perishable food to Operation Santa last year and provides fresh produce every month that supplies multiple food pantry locations in Wakulla County, Ashley said. Ashley, Gail Campbell, Director of Operation Santa, County Commissioner Ralph Thomas, Ray Gray and Terry Webster, from Wakulla County School Board, Layne Davis and Janice Eakin were all on hand to accept delivery when Mike Free from Farm Share delivered the donation. This is our fourth year and we are off to a great start, said Campbell. Last year we served over 275 families consisting of over 1,300 individuals. We expect the same need this year, if not greater. Turn to Page 5A By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.net County commissioners voted 3-1 to approve the elimination of both county wetland policies pertaining to the 75 foot buffer zone, as well as the comprehensive plan standard for disturbance of wetlands essentially giving all wetland regulation responsibility back to the state and federal agencies. Commissioner Richard Harden was not present at Mondays meeting, so the agenda item came before four commissioners with two options. The rst option would have only addressed the buffer zone and variance allowances therein, which was the direction Chairman Randy Merritt had sought in June. The question tonight is, said Merritt, do we want to get totally rid of it or do we want to modify it to allow variances and take out isolated wetlands? The motion for option two was made by Commissioner Jerry Moore who prefaced by referring to his campaign, during which he said, I ran on the issue of sending the wetlands back to the state and I will stick with what I said. Commissioner Ralph Thomas seconded, but offered what he called a friendly amendment. He proposed that the board do away with the proposed text in policy 4.1 that referred to the countys requirement for site plan review where a development project is directly contiguous to wetlands, to which Merritt voiced agreement. Further discussion revealed that the boards vote for either option would mean that information would have to be provided to the state as a requirement for altering the countys comprehensive plan. Planning Director Luis Serna expressed some concern about the provision of such data as, he said, staff would have to prove the justi cation for buffer deletion after the county had previously already proved why it was needed. So the previous board spent time and effort proving that the 75-foot buffer was right and now were going to have to spend time and effort to prove why its wrong, said Merritt. Once its in your comprehensive plan you have to justify it to get it out. To that, Commissioner Thomas said that he couldnt see the state saying that Wakulla had to hold themselves to a 75 foot buffer if state rules didnt designate such standards. Before the vote was made, Commissioner Howard Kessler had made a motion to table the item and instead schedule a workshop concerning wetlands during which he said hed like to have state officials and other experts attend to educate the commission and public on the effects of issues related to their vote. Turn to Page 3ABy AMANDA MAYOR firstname.lastname@example.orgReforms made to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) in 2012, which are scheduled to take place in early 2014, may mean a skyrocketing of ood insurance premiums for some in Wakulla County. Legislation passed in July 2012 extended the NFIP for ve years, and made several changes in relation to NFIP funding, flood mapping and flood mitigation. According to online reports, annual premium limits were raised from 10 percent to 20 percent and established the requirement for FEMA to submit a 10 year repayment plan for the programs debt to the U.S. Treasury debt which came largely from the hurricane season of 2005. These factors are what sources say will force premiums to go up, especially for those that are too low in the ood zone and losing their subsidies. The City of St. Marks is particularly concerned about how they are placed on the new FEMA ood map.At their city commission meeting on Thursday, Changes could see spike in ood insurance ratesSt. Marks is area most a ected by ood map, will ask Sen.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 www.thewakullanews.comFrom Page 1A Sept. 12, Billy Bishop updated the board on correspondence with Homeland Security as he has tried to challenge the data that they claim quali es St. Marks for the changes made regarding the city and the ood map. The citys ood plain, said St. Marks Mayor Chuck Shields, has been drastically increased from a 13 feet to 22 feet. Also, most of the town is going to be changed from an A zone to a V zone, Shields said, which means there will be no tolerance. You cant even put a storage shed on a V zone property without getting it up off the ground. Theres no past history that proves that anything like this is going to happen, he said. The claim by those responsible for the changes, claim that the biggest issue in St. Marks will be wave action. However, those in St. Marks claim that is false. In the past 150 years, Hurricane Dennis was the highest water we had but there was no wave action in St. Marks, Shields said. But the claim is that tidal waves are going to destroy anything below 22 feet a claim that is completely unwarranted according to Bishop. Were in the same zone as a house that is built directly on the beach, Bishop said, but pointed out that the city is at least six miles from shallow water or any type of threatening wave activity. Its going to hurt the city of St. Marks economically, City Manager Zoe Mans eld said. To get a business to build 22 feet in the air its not going to happen. Bishop expressed frustration that he met with of cials who agreed that trees would break any alleged wave action then pointed out that trees surround the city. Yet, he said, they continue to insist that their system is correct. As far as appealing or moving forward, the group discussed recruiting help through state Sen. Bill Montford, DTallahassee, as they have exhausted what they can do without the hundreds of thousands dollars it would take to gather the mass of data required for what FEMA would say is an of cial complaint. In addition to the issues that were raised at Thursdays meeting, citizens and businesses should also be aware of how their properties t into the Pre-FIRM and grandfathered NFIP rates, both of which are projected to be at least partially discontinued. According the Extension Disaster Education Network, a pre-FIRM rate refers to the discounted rate offered to those below that were built before 1975 or before the community received its rst Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). These rates will be discontinued for business properties and other buildings that are not a primary residence. These rates will also expire with the expiration of the propertys policy. A grandfathered rate refers to an administratively granted discount to a building erected postFIRM, in compliance with a FIRM, and with a permit from the community, but a more recent FIRM shows the building to be at greater risk of ooding. Grandfathered rates will be discontinued, with premium increase toward actuarial rates being phased in over a ve-year period with 20 percent of the increases being added each year. The ve-year period begins on the effective date of the FIRM that identi es the increased risk.

Aaron Franklin Swain Jr., 19, of Crawfordville and Riley Patrick Waters, 18, of St. Marks were arrested after WCSO detectives broke the case with the arrest of Daniel Alexander Faircloth, 19, of Crawfordville on Sept. 6. Swain turned himself in on Sept. 15. He was charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of larceny and two counts of credit card fraud. He is being held in the Wakulla Jail on a $28,500 bond. Waters was captured by the Leon County Sheriffs Office and turned over to WCSO deputies on Sept. 12 and transported to the Wakulla Jail. He was charged with three counts of burglary, three counts of larceny and two counts of illegal use of a credit card. He is being held with no bond. Faircloth faces 34 charges including burglary, larceny, retail theft and fraudulent use of a credit card. He remains in the Wakulla County Jail under a $34,000 bond. Faircloth was arrested on Sept. 6. The three men are accused of entering unlocked vehicles in the Wakulla Gardens community of Crawfordville along with vehicles in the Dorothy Loop, Ridgewood Drive and Sam Smith neighborhoods in the eastern zone of the county. Faircloth was observed broken down on the side of a Crawfordville roadway earlier this month. When deputies offered assistance, they observed property inside the vehicle that matched the description of items stolen from a Dorothy Loop case. In addition, surveillance video obtained at a Crawfordville business connected the three teenagers to the use of a stolen credit card. Detectives are closing out paperwork on 17 cases in the Wakulla Station area based on the arrests as the investigation continues and additional charges are possible.Special to The NewsWakulla County Sheriff Charlie Creels message to residents of the Wakulla Gardens community was Take back your community. The message was delivered during the rst in a series of Community Conversations that will be held in Wakulla County in the coming months.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 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. I know this board doesnt have the info it needs to move forward right now, he said. Im not interested in tabling this, said Thomas. But Im not opposed to a workshop. With discussion on the item slowing down, Moore seemed to try to allay what some have expressed as fear for developing on the countys wetlands. I will vote against anyone developing in wetlands every time, he said. The damage is only a perception. Thomas said that the ordinance is not the only way to protect the countys wetlands. When that petition comes to you, please think about it, he said and referred to the emotional plea that would come with the petition. On that note, Chairman Merritt reiterated his preference for option one that he had proposed in June as he said there is that chance that the referendum will get on the ballot and pass. Potentially, he said, if there is a lapse in time where the ordinance is deleted, then is re-established, lawsuits may ensue for the taking of peoples property. That is what really scares me about this, Merritt said. However the amended motion to approve option two as well as striking the language in policy 4.1 was passed by Merritt, Moore and Thomas voting for; Kessler voted against. In other matters before the board: County commissioners voted unanimously to approve the Tourist Development Councils recommendation to hire Sam Martin as their new director. The vote showed signs of wavering though, when Moore said hed rather see the new director be a county employee a stance that both he and Kessler had expressed when the board was determining whether to allow a contracted individual or not. Since there were only four commissioners at Mondays meeting, a 2-2 vote would have meant that the issue would backtrack. At Moores expression of an intended vote against the item, Kessler expressed interest in doing the same. Thomas, who is the elected of cial appointed to the TDC, expressed his pride in the direction that the TDC is helping the county to move in. State statute sets up the TDC, he said. That statute requires they meet once per quarter, but this TDC has met 32 times this year. They do work very hard and theres a lot theyve had to do in the absence of a director. With the motion at risk of dying, Jackie Youngstrand, there to represent the TDC, spoke. We have been without a director since February, she said. Lets move forward and lets get this director in place so that we can start working on our grants and start getting our advertising done. Moore, after expressing his reluctance, ended up saying that he would change his vote, followed shortly thereafter by Kessler. The item then passed 4-0. The board also voted to approve the proposed budget containing the amendment made at the Sept. 3 hearing, which allowed for a one-year allocation of $150,000 to the sheriffs budget. Merritt wanted to offer a compromise to the slightly controversial item, saying that the board could agree to make those funds available the sheriff couldnt make the proposed cuts happen. My concern is that weve been told that this is not a sustainable path, he said. Thomas, whos motion it was to approve the item, said hed really rather leave his motion as it stood. I say we give him a chance, he said. Kessler said that it wasnt about supporting the sheriff, but rather, it was about spending down reserves. This is wrong, Kessler said and mentioned that board members had received a letter from Clerk of Courts Brent Thurmond urging them not to make the decision to spend reserves. However, the motion passed 3-1 with the lone dissenting vote cast by Kessler. Chairman Randy Merritt Richard Harden Howard Kessler Jerry MooreRalph Thomas FOR REPEAL. ABSENT, but supported repeal.

The rst, a revenue agreement with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, will allow the District to continue a monitoring program to assess water quality on major rivers and streams throughout the panhandle. The data is used by DEP and the District to develop and implement management strategies to improve water quality and minimize negative impacts on surface water resources. The District is grateful for the continued support of our state and federal partners as we work to ensure a clean and reliable supply of water for the people and environment of Northwest Florida, said Jon Steverson, Executive Director. The funds for this program, up to $121,000 for Fiscal Year 2013-2014, will be provided by DEP for the purpose of monitoring and improving surface water quality throughout the state. The District will collect water quality samples monthly from 26 river and stream sites, and biological habitat samples biannually from 24 sites Districtwide. Healthy Florida waterways are critical to our residents and visitors. Monitoring networks are an essential part of understanding their health, said Drew Bartlett, DEP Deputy Secretary for Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. The Governing Board also approved a revenue agreement between the District, City of Tallahassee and Leon County that will allow the District to continue a stormwater flow monitoring program. Under the agreement, the city and county will provide the District with approximately $164,000 to operate 53 surface and rainfall data collection stations that provide continuous records of rainfall and surface water discharges for the major drainage basins in the City and County. This data is used to design and implement important improvements in the stormwater drainage system. NWFWMD continues programs to protect water quality WAKULLA COUNTY / CITY OF ST.

Since I am the Board of County Commissioners appointed representative to the Tourist Development Council, I would like to publically address Mr. Hickmans concerns. First I would like to thank him for acknowledging my prior statement, it is the commissions responsibility to assure all county policies are followed. This issue is certainly no exception. The board approved the hiring of an Independent Contractor for this position. When referring to Contractors, Mr. Hickman was correct when he said, In reality, they are a consultant. He also stated, it should have gone out for bids or quotes. While I appreciate his opinion, I have to disagree with his conclusion that the process should have gone out for bids. In the Wakulla County Purchasing Policy, Section 5.17(7) states, The requirement for competitive bidding procedures shall be waived for the purchase of: Consultant Services, other than those regulated by Florida Statutes Section 287.055. This position is clearly not regulated by state statute and is waived from the bidding process by local policy. The position will be part-time, 20 hours per week, and will not include county bene ts, including insurance. Through the advertising process, the TDC has been upfront with all applicants about the nature of the contractor position and bene ts. It is also important to note the county would likely have received no responses if we utilized a bid process, as Mr. Hickman suggested. Individuals seeking a part-time job are typically not familiar with the bid process. The method we chose was intended to create interest in the position and maximize responses. I hope this information will eliminate any concerns of wrongdoing or breach of ethics.

On the one hand, there are contractors and businesses that rely on development for their livelihoods, they see the ordinance as an impediment to their continued employment and support of the local economy. On the other hand, there are genuinely concerned citizens that see what state government stewardship has achieved in the rest of Florida, and are trying to preserve the uniqueness and beauty of Wakulla County. What complicates an issue that could be resolved through reasonable debate and compromise are the mindless diatribes and character assassinations by selfserving publicists on both sides of the aisle. While there is nothing magical about a 75 foot buffer, neither will there be anything desirable about a future Wakulla County where the natural beauty has been ruined. What attracts people to this county is the blend of comfortable living and the abundance of nature. We need managed development to support the economy and services we rely on, but the development and value of the land will decline if we do not preserve one of the fundamental reasons people want to live here. Take a hard look at the basis for removing this ordinance, we need the golden eggs, but we do not want to kill the goose in the process. Kim Brock Crawfordville Editor, The News: As a Wakulla County taxpayer and voter living in the Ochlockonee Bay area I have some serious concerns about the Tarpine Community proposal to expand the airstrip adjacent to their community. This is not solely an issue for the residents of Ochlockonee Bay, but one for all of the citizens of Wakulla County. Let me explain why. In the last ve years Wakulla County spent some $150,000 in airport expenses using our tax dollars. Should there be an expansion of the airstrip using Florida DOT funds as proposed, ongoing recurring costs for maintenance and operations would increase and future storm damage could easily incur major infrastructure restoration costs in paved runway rebuilding, leakage from fuel storage, and hanger damage, and that is just for starters. Consultants conducting the airport master plan study estimate that routine annual maintenance costs far exceed proposed income from an increased number of users. I resent the use of my federal, state, or county tax dollars to serve the few residents who use the airstrip. Current airstrip usage figures are greatly exaggerated. I heard a total of two take-offs over the Labor Day weekend. The current airstrip is not generating tax income to the county as no usage fees are collected. If Wakulla County needed a county owned airport, why would reasonable men select a ood zone limited by two highways that serves a small locality in the far southwest corner of the county? The current airstrip is located in a ood zone and there are multiple de ned wetlands located on the property. The location is hazardous for iers and is forever limited in terms of future expansion. Its location does not serve the residents of Shell Point, St. Marks, Spring Creek, Medart, Wakulla, Crawfordville or Sopchoppy. People of these communities are all county taxpayers. If the county needed an airport supported with county tax dollars, centrally located properties in safe areas that allow for expansion would be the reasonable approach. With the TCC plan for ecotourism associated with their environmental institute, a publically owned airport located in the central part of the county would serve that initiative as well as county citizens. The proposed plan to expand the airstrip using state DOT funds will devalue adjacent waterfront property. Wakulla County does not have an overabundance of upscale residential neighborhoods to generate its tax base. Waterfront neighborhoods are limited to a handful. And yet, the proposed plan will crop mature trees, increase risk of flooding, and generate noise pollution for Ochlockonee Bay waterfront residences. Fortunately, county commissioners have proposed a 300 foot preservation buffer between the airstrip and Surf Road residences, a recommendation I wholeheartedly support. I was taught to love this county when I worked for Anita Townsend in the late 1960s and early 70s. My son married into an old Wakulla family, and chose to live here, paying taxes for the last 25 years. When I was able to buy my own Wakulla County property, it was a dream come true. But in the last year, my dream has been slowly taken. My view has been taken when the land purchased for the proposed airstrip expansion was stripped. My windbreak was taken. My natural protection for ooding was taken. My quiet peaceful quality of life is threatened. My property value is threatened, despite the amounts I have spent to improve my property and the neighborhood for Wakulla County. I ask. Would reasonable men devalue a waterfront neighborhood to incur the ongoing tax supported maintenance costs of a locally used hobby airstrip, located in a ood zone, where motorized wind sails take off and land? I believe reasonable men would turn the airstrip property over to the Tarpine residents allowing it to remain as it has for many years, a service to that small airstrip community. This truly is an issue of concern to all citizens of Wakulla County. Thank you, Marie E. Cowart Ochlockonee Bay

It is such a blessing to know that there are still good people in the world. Thanks Again, Terri Mercer Crawfordville Editor, The News: I am writing to address the headline of Sept. 19, Wetlands Repeal passes, 3-1. While the article was straightforward, the headline was misleading. Our wetlands ordinance was not repealed; the vote was to pursue repeal, which in itself is a scary thought, but we still have time to save our wetlands ordinance and maintain local control of our future. Otherwise, well be eating our seed corn. When a farmer starts eating his seed corn, the corn he saves for the next planting season, hes in trouble. Also a business depleting inventory and not replacing it, troubles coming. And when a county, so dependent on water and wetlands, whose very name means Mysterious Waters, makes a move towards eliminating local wetlands protection, that countys in trouble. Seed corn, you know. Everyone knows the bundle of bene ts we get from the wetlands. If we keep local control, they will feed us and take care of us. Otherwise, its a crap shoot. The irony and hypocrisy over this issue is incredible. Everyone pays lip service in favor of the wetlands, then votes to abandon local oversight? Organizations and individuals who should be supporting the wetlands are not speaking out. Well, the time for lip service is over. It is literally (or littorally?) a life or death situation for our county. Which way do we want to go more of the same with no infrastructure, more ooding, growing pollution, less hurricane protection and less value to our land and homes? Or something else? Our future depends on clean and abundant water. Consider this alternative: A county with water-based tourism, commercial shing, sight-seeing, sport shing, seafood restaurants, with protected wetlands to soften the blows of hurricanes, lter our waters to the Gulf, to help with inland and coastal ooding and more. That futures dependent on wetlands. Were at a crossroads. This is our Edmund Pettus Bridge moment. When Afro-Americans were denied the right to vote in the 1960s, they tried to march from Selma to Montgomery. A man was killed, people were turned back by a few in a corrupt attempt to limit citizens participation. They didnt want all people to have a vote, a say in their future. AfroAmericans had to ght for their right to vote, as the Wakulla Wetlands alliance is doing now ghting to allow the citizens a vote on our future. But now our commission fails to support putting the current wetlands referendum on the ballot. They are refusing citizen input as much as those people blocking that bridge. And when political discussion devolves into a George Wallace stand-in-the-door moment, when a group of citizens, seeking to discuss public policy were kept out of a public building by a one man here, somethings bad wrong. And now that the commission has revealed its true core by not allowing citizens a referendum opportunity, thats bad wrong. To discuss and speculate on commissioners motives, how much money each one will make or their own personal nancial gain from repeal is a waste of time. What is important is that citizens have the ability to vote. But commissioners denying full citizen participation by referendum is wrong. Once again, a small group is refusing to allow citizens a say in their own future. Lets not eat our seed corn. Lets get the wetlands ordinance on the ballot. And let all commissioners know that their reelection and their one cent sales tax will also be on that ballot this next November and we will not forget their actions in subsequent elections. When our commission fears the citizenry so much, somethings up. Hugh Taylor CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: In recent meetings and in print all but one of our current commissioners have been willfully misleading the public, these inaccuracies show disregard for the community. Sadly, the misinformation and/or ignorance have led to a motion that directs staff to remove all wetlands protections from the comprehensive plan. It is a grave mistake to sacri- ce the long-term sustainability of our community for the short-term windfall pro ts of a few. This is not about any one project in the wetland buffer but about the accumulated cost these projects will have on our local ecology. It is about loss of current and potential sustainable jobs as opposed to a few short-term jobs. As a community we must rally to oppose these changes. We can no longer take for granted that we are lucky enough to live in the fourth most ecologically diverse area of the country. For most of us, this variety of species may not seem important, but in fact it provides many of the bene ts our community enjoys: hunting, fishing, bird watching and other nature based industries. It is also expected to provide a growing numbers of jobs from ecological tourism, which will be enhanced by TCCs Wakulla Environmental Institute. Wetlands and isolated wetlands are a key part of these activities. Outdated thinking was that Florida wetlands were low quality land that just needed to be converted to more productive uses. Science has shown that they provide many important environmental purposes: 1) Functioning wetlands clean and lter water coming from the uplands, 2) Functioning wetlands provide breeding grounds and habitat for many commercially important species 3) Functioning wetlands are the only home for many rare plant and animal species. Wetlands also enhance our communities with social values through 1) protecting out shorelines from erosion 2) providing storage areas for water to reduce ooding 3) provide diversity and beauty to our landscapes. Even ponds that dry up on an annual basis are the breeding ground of unique frogs and salamanders who eat insects and are in turn eaten by species higher on the food chain. While no single pond is important, the function of the aggregate is to support larger and more diverse communities than would exist without them. The current 75-foot buffer (four pick-up trucks bumper-to-bumper) protects these wetlands from the direct impact of development and its degradation by materials used or disturbed in our daily activities. Seventy- ve feet is insigni cant for a reasonably sized property. The claim that property rights have been violated is misleading, if the land was platted and purchased prior to the 1995 comp plan, a variance is already available. Buyers purchasing after that date purchased knowing the uses allowed and paid a price reflective of these protections. The wetlands ordinance did not change the protections; it gave the county a mechanism to enforce them and a way to provide variances from them when appropriate. The wetland protections do have an impact on developers who want to parcel up their land into the smallest parcels possible, since a parcel subdivided today must be large enough to keep construction outside of the 75 foot buffer. With the proposed changes, building right up to the edge will be possible, and drastically change the appearance of coastal development in this county. Based on current state law, once this change is made, it is almost impossible to reinstate. The TCC environmental center, soon a part of our county, provides the perfect catalyst to change our model for development and growth. Development is good and necessary, but lets grow and enhance our community with vision for the communal good as opposed to windfall pro ts for a few individuals. Get involved to help protect our community. Encourage development that bene ts and maintains a landscape supportive of full range of environmental possibilities and avoid South Floridas degraded landscapes. Let your commissioners know that you dont support their decision to roll back protections to bene t those who knowingly purchased with the current rules in place. There will be no do-overs on this issue get involved; speak out; sign petitions; or we lose our chance to leave a legacy that we can be proud of. Chuck Hess CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: It is a patriotic pity that people are using intimidation to stop registered voters from signing petitions for a 2014 referendum on Wakulla County wetland protection. Intimidation, as a tactic, is mighty desperate, nevertheless, there it was, in black and white in the Wakulla News Letters to the Editor on Sept. 12, when a writer told readers that he had been advised voters names would be part of a public record if they signed petitions. Of course petitions are public records, along with names and addresses of all of us when we register to vote. Public records even show when and where we cast our votes. Is that a reason not to vote? The way its done in the United States of America is no secret voters, and no secret petitions for a referendum. When elected of cials refuse to listen to the people, a voter petition referendum, or whatever you want to call it, expresses the public voice of the people. And, by the way, petitions in a democracy are nothing new. Theyve been around since 400 B.C., or so, in Athens, Greece, and the USA has a long history of using them. Remember 1978, when California voters approved Proposition 13, The Peoples Initiative to Lower Taxes? State lawmakers refused to lower taxes, so people circulated petitions, got enough signatures to put Prop 13 on the ballot, and then voted overwhelmingly to cut their taxes. Now, thats just plain American. For those who might not be aware, Wakulla County could have avoided the wetlands petition drive altogether if commissioners were more in tune with democracy. They have the power to put the wetlands issue on the ballot, but four of the commissioners refused. Why they refused is still an unanswered question. Unless they change their minds, here we are: Protecting Wakullas wetlands is up to the people to circulate petitions, and it wont be easy. About 5,600 Wakulla County signed petitions are needed, and I, for one, am proud to sign one. Im even prouder to circulate the petitions. If you want to be a part of this drive, or simply sign a petition, email the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance at email@example.com, or call me: 509-9859. Dana Peck PanaceaEditor, The News: Everywhere, including in the paper, on social media, and at various events around town, there has been some talk about Wakulla wetlands and the wetlands petition. One thing however that I have not seen is credible information stating the reasons why the wetlands people feel that the county ordinance is better than the states statute. In some ways it appears that there is an elitist attitude among the wetlands people that it is their way or the highway. This is not meant to be derogatory but if Wakulla County is going to take all the potential nancial risks (i.e., potential litigation costs), is going to restrict voters rights by demanding government by unanimous vote (5-0 commission vote) or by referendum (written months, sometimes years, in advance of the vote), and is potentially taking on the power to tell people where and what they can build it seems that there would be more speci c and solid information in the public arena as to why this ordinance is better than state law. Being allowed to build with a 0 foot buffer zone under the state statute is a false argument as the state does not allow this except under the most exigent of circumstances yet this is the primary argument being given to the less informed voter. In fact this one particular argument is being presented in such a fraudulent way that it appears to be designed to incite fear or panic in the voter. I have gone to the Facebook pages that are run by the wetland people and they are glossy and emotion based. Oh, sure you can nd information that is one-sided and is intended to be harmful to someone who does not agree with them i.e., the position of Gov. Scotts administration (who, arguably, has done more for Florida natural resource protection than previous governors) or gives opinion pieces that protect their point of view. For instance, one of the Facebook sites insinuates that four of our county commissioners do not want us to have clean drinking water. To quote: Florida was rated as one of the top ve worst states for drinking water quality. Ask your Wakulla County commissioners why they want to degrade the quality of our drinking water? Who pro ts from that? Not the citizens. This is obviously neither fair nor true but it is there with no way to counteract the argument since that media page is controlled by people associated with the Wetlands Alliance. Seemingly they will not allow either facts or opposing points of view on that site so again the voice of the people is suppressed (although they will claim they are the voice of the people and they stand for transparency). Facts are crucial in any argument but we are only seeing supposition, misguided compassion, a lack of legitimate comparison between two legitimate policies (state and local), insinuation (minus recent concrete evidence) that there has been and will be great harm done to the wetlands if placed under state ordinance, accusation that four of the county commissioners are personally bene ting from a repeal of the county ordinance (personal destruction tactics are so sad), and opinion being thrown out as fact. As a person who has seen the damage that referendums can cause I urge all voters to hear both sides of the issue before signing a petition. A signature is not retractable and often it is better to take a wait and listen approach before deciding too quickly to sign something that can not be undone. James Grey Crawfordville

Compiled by Lynda KinseyFrom Page 1AEach year families needing a helping hand share what they need the most and, of course, what theyd like Santa to bring them. Our hearts almost break when a child asks Santa to bring them food, shoes, or a bed to sleep in, instead of asking for toys. We see things like this on the news and in movies, but when you realize these needs are right here in our community, living or maybe more appropriately existing just down the street, it makes us realize how Operation Santa can brighten and bene t our neighbors lives. We want to make sure every child has a Christmas gift. Layne Davis, Volunteer Coordinator, with help from her daughter, Eliza Davis, shared that donations from the community are already coming in and approximately 40 volunteers have signed up. Harriett Rich was our rst pick up of the year with a great assortment of like new clothes. Last year over 110 individuals volunteered their time and 100+ groups and businesses participated in some way, Layne Davis said. In a couple of weeks we will have collection boxes in businesses around Wakulla County and we look forward to them lling up over and over. A list of the collection box locations will be posted on Operation Santas Facebook page and announced in The Wakulla News. Call Layne Davis at (850) 519-2140 to learn more about volunteer opportunities. Many businesses have also stepped up. Just to name a few: Stow-A-Way, Nads and North Point Center have donated storage space. Best Western donated 20 TVs and Badcock will be providing furniture and mattresses. Denita Lambou of Big Rocket Studios provided graphic design services and created a beautiful new logo and signs. Richard Russell, Manager of Wal-Mart is excited to once again support Operation Santa in any way they can. The Caring Tree, which was a huge community giveback last year, will be put up the day after Black Friday. Russell is interested in having a cookout in front of the store, a pictures with Santa Day and is also working on a grant from Wal-Mart. As you prepare for Christmas, you may be cleaning out closets and going through your childrens toys. Please keep in mind that someone might love to see that like new toy or clothing under their Christmas tree. Heres how you can help: Adopt a family, or two, or three call Gail at 926-3526. Challenge your child or grandchild to select a like new toy(s) they no longer play with to give to a child that has no or few toys and place them in one of the collection boxes. Encourage family, friends and co-workers to join together to adopt a family. Volunteer; we have many jobs that need helping hands and youll nd yourself surrounded by friends. Donate funds for our volunteers to buy needed items not donated. Ask your youth group, church family or civic organization to volunteer and assist in collecting needed items. In past years volunteers entered individual family information in spreadsheets and worked many, many hours to sort out what each family needed and then sort through the donations, said Janice Eakin, who is working with Mindy Waters from Tribridge, to develop a web-based system for WCCY Partners to enter their referred families into a database. This database will help streamline the process volunteers go through to match a familys needs with available donated items. Also, it will point out what items WCCY may not have and need to be sought in the community. This should reduce the number of volunteer hours normally spent on these activities. Eakin also shared that information about WCCY programs will be distributed to the community via Facebook, WCCYs website (wakullacoalition.net), a monthly newsletter and articles in the The Wakulla News. To find Wakullas Operation Santa Facebook page, search for Operation Santa Crawfordville. The newsletter is published and distributed via email and is published on the FB page. The direct link to last months newsletter which provides information about the volunteer opportunities is http://conta. cc/13FbwQH. Monetary donations may be mailed to Operation Santa, P.O. Box 1688, Crawfordville FL 32327 or made via PayPal to Wakulla Operation Santa. For monetary donation questions, please contact Gail Campbell at (850) 926-3526. WCCY Partners include school teachers/guidance counselors/resource officers, churches, Wakulla Citizens Senior Center, Healthy Families Program, Christ Church Anglican and state agencies for Children and Families, Department of Health, and Juvenile Justice, among others. The window for partners to refer families is Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. Operation Santas SANTA DAY is Saturday, Dec. 14. We need our community to rally behind us again this year, said Ashley.

SNYDER In our house, we have a rule that has enabled us to live at peace with one another for over 42 years. That rule is simple, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. I must admit some rather close calls have challenged that relationship during those years. I will not say from which side of the house it came from; just that it was not my side of the house. It must be quite dif cult for someone like the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage whom, I must confess is a neat freak, and Yours Truly who is just a plain old messy freak. My wife cannot relax if there is something out of place. On occasion, I will catch her glancing in the direction of my space and I know exactly what she is thinking. I do not always know what she is thinking, because that would be very taxing on my thinking machine. I know exactly what she is thinking. She wants to clean up my mess. Do you need any help tidying up your of ce? I know it is a ploy for her to get her organizing paws on my things and arrange them so I cannot nd anything I want when I want it. Although it may not look like it to her, I am quite organized. I guess we have a different idea when it comes to organization. When I go to the cupboard in the kitchen, I know everything will be in its place. In the bathroom, the same thing goes. Everything is neatly put in its place. She knows where everything is and everything is where she wants it. Well, maybe not quite everything. There are those issues with me. To make matters worse, she has this idea of cleaning the house on a regular basis. Do you know how annoying it is to hear the vacuum cleaner running when trying to take a nap? Like clockwork, our vacuum cleaner takes its weekly, if not more, run throughout the house. Do you know how much electricity it takes to do that on a weekly basis? If I had to choose between dirt and electricity, I would choose dirt every time. My space is just a little bit different. I like to think of my space as actual living quarters. It may look like a mess to some Philistine, but I can assure you everything has a place and everything is in its place. I can find what I want when I want it, which is the only thing that really matters. If I cannot nd what I need when I need it then I do not really need it. Life is that simple when you accept messy as a lifestyle. Just recently, my wife suggested that perhaps she could help me organize my office space. I just scowled at her and said, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. She smiled one of those sympathetic smiles she gives everyone she thinks does not know what is going on in the world. Quite frankly, I do not need to know what is going on in the world. All I need to know is what is going on in my world and I have several piles in my of ce I can consult on that topic. All offers to help me tidy up my mess go unheeded. I like my mess because it is my mess. I made it, I am proud of it and I love it. I have grown quite uneasy as of late. Every time I go away I come back to nd some new remodeling project completed in our house. I am beginning to think she watches too much of This Old House. I spent a week in California only to come home and nd the kitchen completely remodeled. Now, as I think the plan was, I do not know where anything in the kitchen is. All the old cupboards have been replaced by newer and bigger cupboards. I am afraid at this point to raise any kind of an objection. After all, we do have that my space/your space policy and I really do not want to jeopardize that in any fashion. My basic concern is this; I fear when I go for a week and come back my space will be so completely remodeled and organized that I will not recognize it and will not be able to nd anything I need. What would I do then? If I compliment her on her remodeling jobs, it might make her con dent about doing more remodeling jobs which may spill over into my space. Can you imagine how awful it would be? It would be a sad day if I came home from some trip and found my mess completely gone. What would I do with my life? I would have to start life all over again and you know how expensive that is. It is tough married to a x up guru; then again, I suppose it is just as hard to be wedded to a mess up guru. I have one concession in this area. David said it so well, Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow (Psalms 51:7 KJV). God specializes in cleaning up messes and preparing people like me for heaven. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Steve is one of the key people leading Wakulla County into the industry of Aquaculture. His visions and community trust are leading the way to a bright and sustainable seafood industry here in the Wakulla Community. Following a presentation outlining this unique and exciting method of farming, there will be a question and answer opportunity for the audience to ask questions. Aquaculture is nding its place in seafood industries all over the world. Our overwhelming demand for seafood is having a notable impact on our seas.

Local students win VFW essay contestPearce receives statewide certi cationSpecial to The NewsWakulla County Superintendent Bobby Pearce was presented a certi cate of completion for the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS) Florida Superintendent Special Certi cation Program. This special certi cation program is implemented in accordance with Section 1001.47(4), Florida Statutes and State Board of Education Rule 6A-1.551, FAC. The certificate was presented to Superintendent Pearce by FADSS President Dan Boyd, FADSS Chief Executive Of cer Bill Montford and Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart on Friday, September 13 at the FADSS fall conference. The Special Certi cation Program is an extensive training program designed speci cally for Florida Superintendents that includes training in School Law, School Finance, Collective Bargaining, the Superintendents Leadership Role in Improving Student Achievement and Core Concepts of Leadership. In addition, the superintendent is required to satisfactorily complete the Florida Superintendents Examination to demonstrate a rm understanding of the information and knowledge presented through the training course. Superintendent Pearce should be commended for his efforts to expand and build upon the skills and knowledge necessary to lead the school system in todays challenging and complex society, said Montford. Wakulla County School District is fortunate to have a leader like Superintendent Pearce who is committed to public education and to the continuous growth and enhancement of their own leadership skills in order to better serve their school system, Montford said. Superintendent outlines new opportunities for studentsSpecial to The NewsWakulla County public school students have even more opportunities to prepare for their futures, to be a part of the safety and security of their classmates, and to give back to their community, according to Superintendent Bobby Pearce. I want every student to leave our school system not only with a great education, but also with the ability to act as a good citizen in our community and in our world, he said. A few of the recently implemented opportunities include: Increased Tallahassee Community College Dual Enrollment Courses at WHS. Wakulla High School now offers six different TCC courses on the WHS campus, three per semester. English and History courses are offered as full classes. In addition, distance learning equipment that links WHS with TCC Engineering Manufacturing courses facilitates the participation of WHS students with TCC college credit classes. Without this innovation, students would have to drive to Tallahassee to be a part of the actual classes. Comprehensive Guidance Services at WHS. The WHS Guidance Department is physically being renovated to increase services to students and parents by making it a One Stop Shopping Center that will house the Assistant Principal of Curriculum, the Career Specialist, the registrar, the school counselors, and a licensed clinical social worker. Guidance has increased the number of dates the American College test (ACT), Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) will be hosted on the WHS campus. Increased Career and Technical Education Opportunities at Middle and High Schools. A partnership with Wakulla School District, Lively Technical Center, Super Lube and CarQuest enabled the opening of the rst Wakulla Technical Center satellite program, Automotive Service Technology. This program provides WHS students hands-on instruction in automotive areas that can lead to industry certi cations. In addition, all of the CTE programs, formerly known as vocational, are attached to industry certi cations that students can use to work straight out of high school to earn a better wage than they would without certi cations. Other industry certification programs include Riversprings Middle, Wakulla Middle, and Wakulla High Schools Computing for College and Careers (Microsoft certi cations). At WHS, there are programs in Accounting, Culinary, Digital Design, Web Design, Carpentry, TV Production, the Medical Academy, and the Engineering Academy, which all have industry certifications tied to them. Safety and Security of Students. All Wakulla students are participating in cyber-safety trainings throughout the school year. In addition, middle school girls are being offered a voluntary program sponsored by the Girl Scouts on BFF Be A Friend First, which teaches students leadership skills and how to be a part of the cyberbullying solution by setting a good example. Superintendent Pearce has also worked closely with the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce to make sure that the School Resource Officers are on middle and high school campuses and available to all the schools at all times during the school day, increasing law enforcement presence during the student day. Opportunities to Give Back to the Community. Students are being encouraged to be involved in giving back to their community as they have been involved in Thanksgiving canned food drives, Operation Santa, Coastal Cleanups, etc. Wakulla School District has dedicated September to Students Supporting Senior Citizens raising money and awareness for Wakullas senior citizens. Notes Pearce, I look forward to continue working with the schools and the community to create even more opportunities for our students. It is the whole child that we are concerned with, both in and out of the classroom.

Page 10A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com & By JENNY ODOMSpecial to The NewsAs if hollowed out of an old cedar stump, raised high above the Sopchoppy River bank, the home of artists Sammy and Sandy Tedder is lled with the rich, natural world that surrounds it. Sammy is a musician, producer and craftsman. Sandy is a potter and musician. These occupational labels seem incomplete. In this treehouse, the lives of these two artists are woven together by the wind, river, and animals that live among them, deep in the forrest. On a humid September afternoon, a slight breeze in the air, Sandy Tedder stands at the top of the exterior staircase that leads to an open deck with a worn, thick picnic table. She is dressed in blue jeans, and a close tting lavender top. Her wavy, silver hair ows like a river rippling down her back. Her cheeks are pink from the sun. She steps down a couple of stairs and points to a rough line drawn on the railing. This is how high the water came last year during the ood, she says about the historic ood that occurred in June 2012. Records indicate the water level was 28 feet above the river. Its hard to imagine water rising so high and flowing through the woods that on this day are peaceful and serene, with background music provided by cicadas. Upon entering the house, Sammy Tedder rises from a grey sectional sofa that hugs the corner. He is tall with snow-white hair and a kind smile. He wears blue jeans, a khaki shirt, and soft brown suede oxfords. He has large, strong hands and a deep, southern voice. The space is lled with exquisitely displayed musical instruments, artifacts and landscape paintings. Two well-used saxophones rest on stands. Hand-carved flutes are placed in a ceramic vase as if they were a bouquet. Native drums of various sizes and styles are grouped on the oor, surrounding a desk. Didgeridoos are hung in a row, with more utes, behind the couch. All are neatly arranged in a vision of circles, with detail and care. Tucked within the instruments is a desk with a laptop, hard-drives, some recording equipment, and a keyboard. Stacks of CDs are arranged on another small desk. The Tedders will celebrate 30 years together in October. It would be hard to nd any bigger fans other than the two for each other. They lived, and worked in Tallahassee for years, and slowly began to acquire property along the Sopchoppy River. In 1989 they built the house, using it as their weekend getaway for over a decade. Then, in 2003 they moved in, making this their fulltime residence.SAMMYS MUSICSammy, a Leon High School graduate, began playing the saxophone at age 11. In high school, he was selected as one of two musicians from the state to represent Florida in the rst-ever McDonalds All-American High School Band that plays annually in the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade. An honor for a young talented musician, although in retrospect, a star just beginning to shine. After high school Sammy attended Florida State University and studied music for a few years. During this time he played with various bands. The 8 of Us in college, then he was part of two touring groups, LaBamba and River Breeze, popular fusion, jazz and rock bands. They toured the Southeast playing at resorts and opening for musicians such as B.B. King, Jimmy Buffett, Jean-Luc Ponte, Herbie Mann, Minnie Ripperton, George Benson, Leon Russell, Percy Sledge and Edgar Winter. We were a great dance band, Sammy says of River Breeze. We could really get rocking. Sammy began composing and recording his own music around 1994, after producing an album for Mercury Records for Tom T. Hall called Songs from Sopchoppy. WORK WITH PAM LAWSMost recently, besides recording a new CD of his own music, Sammy has been recording music by Pam Laws, a well-known Tallahassee based jazz singer. In 1986 the two toured the USSR together on a cultural exchange to promote perestroika through American music. She (Laws) grew up in the south, in the black church, and she came to me wanting to do a spiritual CD based on her childhood experiences, Sammy says. You know, back then it was all a capella, with hand clapping. There were no instruments. He began studying in-depth about African American music and slave music, which is where gospel and jazz all began long ago. I have about six books on the subject, and Ive been learning about the history of the music we are recording, he says. Some of the songs we recorded are from the 1600s, and never really written down. These songs just developed in the fields and churches. He went to Laws home in Tallahassee and recorded her singing, as well as her telling stories about growing up, and the power of the music she learned. Currently he is mixing her voice recordings with instruments he plays, many of them his own and handmade, along with his own voice, and some guest musicians. It is scheduled for a fall release. Last summer Sammy was featured on The Wakulla Summer Sunday, a radio program produced by Palaver Tree Theater. You can listen to it on YouTube WakullaSunday. During the interview, Sammy describes music as visual. To me music is imagery. When I listen to music I have images in my mind. Its usually great big landscapes with big skies and clouds and birds ying in and out, he says. And so, it gives my music that extra layer of imagery. Around 2005 Sammy met Elam Stolzfus, a local documentary filmmaker, through their mutual friend Natalie Provo, who Sammy and Sandy describe as a connector of people. Sammy had been recording nature sounds, in the woods and on the river, and one day Natalie drew upon her intuition. She was our good friend, and she was on one of her many outings, staying over on St. George Island one night, Sammy tells the story. She found out that a lm crew was going to be out lming the nesting sea turtles early in the morning. So she decided to sleep on the beach so she wouldnt miss getting to meet the crew. As the sun rose, here comes this lady walking up with blankets wrapped up all around her blowing in the breeze, he smiles. It must have been a sight to see. Natalie passed away in 2010, but she made an important connection between two artists that lead to a meaningful working relationship. Sammy has created soundtracks for documentaries produced by Stoltzfus, and travelled with his crew during lming for Apalachicola River: An American Treasure and The Big Cypress Swamp: The Western Everglades. He weaves together sounds of nature with traditional and non-traditional musical methods. Richly layered, some songs are slow and ethereal, others are ripe with strong rhythms and beats. The mix is diverse. MAKING INSTRUMENTSBesides being an accomplished and well-respected musician, Sammy makes most of the instruments he plays, and uses, to record. He harvests River Cane from the Sopchoppy and Apalachicola Rivers to make utes. He nds large cedar stumps and hollows out logs to make native drums, and uses bamboo to make didgeridoos. Early in his career, and wanting to expand his knowledge and to learn to play other instruments, Sammy decided to take ute lessons. At the time, Sandy was an accomplished utist and she was taking on a few students. She was impressed with his talent, and his tenacity. He came to take ute lessons years and years ago. He was the student that wouldnt go away, she says with a smile. So, I made him play ute duets for hours and hours. He eventually got up the nerve to ask her out. Ironically, their rst date was on the water. Our rst date was in nature, a canoe trip with friends. He tipped over the canoe during that trip, she smiles. We laughed and laughed about it then and now. I read music, says Sandy, but Sammy, he plays by ear. He is so, so talented. She is the real artist between us. She is so good, says Sammy. Sandy has played the flute, and other instruments on his recordings. She picks up an Udu that she made from clay and plays it. An Udu is an African percussion instrument that looks like a large jug with a hole in the front and top. Its sound is rhythmic and bouncy. Im lucky when she decides to play for me, says Sammy. Im honored that he invites me to play, Sandy says in return. The mutual adoration between them is refreshing. SANDYS POTTERYBesides being a classical utist, Sandy is also an accomplished potter. Her work is detailed and precise. She walks to the dining room table, that is also used as a workspace. Laid out are various nished pieces, and some plaster castings. Sandy describes what inspires her work.Turn to Page 15ATedderSammy & Sandythe couple are inspired by nature along the Sopchoppy RiverSammy TedderYou can purchase CDs online and nd out more about Sammy Tedder at www.SammyTedder.com.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 Page 11AEditors Note: John Roberts provided this remembrance of St. Marks family life by Sandra Cotton Brewer.By SANDRA COTTON BREWERSpecial to The NewsOur dad, Julius B. Cotton Jr. grew up in St. Marks and later joined the U.S. Navy and was honorably discharged in 1945. He was married to my mother, Jeanette Harrell Cotton. I was about 3 years old by the time he returned home from the war to St. Marks and to his lovely wife. He quickly decided that in addition to building our rst home, his No. 1 daughter needed some serious discipline. He began acquiring lots of tools for the tasks at hand in building our house on Shell Island Road. Well guess what? These tools were about the neatest things to me Id ever seen and I loved watching him work with them. Hed leave and go back to work for three weeks, as he was an engineer on a boat. While he was gone, I would have been in his toolbox again. He knew right away upon his return, that No. 1 daughter was at it again, as he would nd screwdrivers and hammers out in the yard, knowing he had put them up safely before leaving. The sailor came out in his language then. He would be so mad, and mother would say, Dont talk like that in front of your daughter. Hed pick up the rst thing he would lay his hands on and give me a good spanking for ruining his tools. Id forget soon enough about the discipline and was just drawn back to those tools in the chest. Thus, the stories began with the little green men he had put in the toolbox. He let me know that if that toolbox lid was ever opened, those little green men had little hammers too, and they would be whacking some knuckles as soon as that lid opened. That slowed me down for awhile. Id stand by that big tool chest and wonder how the little green men kept so quiet in there! You know a lock would have solved the problem which most of us would do today. But youve got to remember we grew up in some hard times. Every spare penny went toward nails, screws, and tools, etc., for building the house and food for the table. After our home was completely built we had to haul water for cooking and drinking for several months. But we did have indoor plumbing! Dad was a rm believer in not buying anything until you had the cash to pay for it. Until then you just did without. Childhood friends were a treat for me. Ralph Oliver was one of my rst playmates and neighbor. He was about my age. I remember when dad was discharged from the Navy and was able to come home to us, running over to tell Ralph and his mother that I have a dad too! Shortly after dad came home from the Navy, along came my little sisters, Cynthia and Joan. He had his hands full, not to mention my sweet mother. The two little ones, 13 months apart, were idyllic to him because they didnt bother his tools. But, they were nding other adventures to get into. When I was 6 years old, it became tooth pulling time and his favorite entertainment! Hed get a big roll of string and tie one end around my tooth then tie the other end to the front door knob. Then hed giggle and say Tell me when youre ready for me to slam the door, and mama get the bucket because shes going to bleed like crazy. That scared me to death. Its funny what you remember from childhood but Dad was terri ed of a snake. I remember late one afternoon when a snake fell out of an oak tree that was in our yard and it landed right on his shoulders and the back of his neck. He screamed and Im sure went for a gun, but rst he most likely had to change his pants! Mother was terrified of ddler crabs. For those of you who dont know what that is, its a little crab creature who lives around water and mostly on land. Dad would spend a day shing in the Gulf, and on his way home from the dock he would pick up a ddler, put it in his pocket and bring it home. He always whistled a little tune walking home from the boat dock that was at Wash Landing. I still remember that little tune. Wash Landing was near the San Marcos de Apalache State Park. We simply called it the Old Fort back then before it became a state park. Id run inside the house and tell mom that daddy was close I could hear his whistle and shed get so excited that he was coming in for dinner. Shed busy herself setting the table and when he came in the house hed go up to her and give her a little kiss, then pull that ddler out of his pocket and put it on her shoulder. Needless to say, that didnt earn him any points with mom. Wash Landing had a dock for a few boats which was close to our house in St. Marks. I made many a trip with dad by boat at Christmas time down river near the old fort to cut a cedar tree. Wed bring it back to the house to decorate. I was told by my grandmother that in prior generations women would take their dirty laundry to Wash Landing to wash in the river. I think that was where I actually learned to swim. I remember in those childhood days having many dinner table episodes of family disfunctioning. I hated milk and would always cause a spill during a meal. Then Id get the knuckle thump on the head from dad. My sister, Joan, hated eggs as a child and daddy just kept making her eat more and more. Pretty soon her little face looked like it was going to explode! She never swallowed them. Soon the tears would come along with him fussing about her needing to eat so she wouldnt be so skinny. Mother was paranoid about skinny kids. She didnt want anyone thinking we didnt get enough to eat around her table. My sister, Cynthia, just wanted to make everyone happy. She ate everything they gave her and mother was really proud! She had one daughter that looked normal to her because she had some flesh on her bones. If any readers know who the person is to the left of Ms. Georgia Lynn, let us know. As years progressed, dad eventually mellowed some and began to nd the humor in life. The best fun came when we could do more things with him. When I was about 8 years old I loved the times hed take me hunting and hed say, Walk right behind me in my footsteps, and dont move until I tell you to. The worst thing was I couldnt TALK! It would scare the squirrels or turkeys away. There would be a time during the day that dad and I would sit by a tree and then hed start telling some of his great stories. I loved them. He was always telling us kids what a wonderful mother we had, and how much she sacrificed for us. Every father should do that, and vice-versa. I loved the shing trips most with my dad out to the bay, or the flats, as they were referred to a lot. Many times these trips were miserable, but I was always willing to take the chance. You were either freezing at 4 a.m. going down the river to the bay, or during a bad squall. Many times that old tarpaulin felt good around my shoulders he kept under the bow. Other times I was burning up under the hot sun and no winds. You know, all of us just dealt with it! It was an adventure with a Great Adventurer at the helm of the boat. He would smoke those hand-rolled cigarettes and grin like a Cheshire cat when he was shing on the bay. He was a happy man! I remember catc hing those shiners for bait and him paying me a penny apiece for them. He would always take everyone of them off my hook for me. My lunch on those trips were usually Graham crackers and peanut butter. Anything made with mayo wouldnt work in the hot sun out on the water. Hed have us a soft drink in the cooler, usually the same cooler where the sh were that we caught. Oh man, I hated sh slime all over my cold RC Cola! Yuck! Hed just laugh and say wash it in the bay, honey. He knew Id drink it anyway. He taught us much about hard work in our adventures and not to complain. Though, I was a slow learner in that regard. Whoever went shing with him had to help clean the sh. That was usually around 8 or 9 at night outside at the faucet where he had a water hose and a makeshift table where we would clean those speckled trout and rock bass. Our bodies would be covered in mosquitoes! We couldnt eat dinner until the work was done and it was shared by all. Then wed all enjoy the wonderful fried sh and hushpuppies that mom would cook. I have never, to this day, had a hushpuppy as good as my mothers were. Another thing I treasure about dad is that what little time he had to share of himself when he was home, and that was very seldom, he did try to give his three girls and his grandchildren all great memories and much, much fun when they visited. Im sure they had their favorites, but you know none of us would have ever known it.In and around St. Marks with our dad, Julius B. Cotton Jr. Julius B. Cotton Jr. as a boy.

Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com By BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, Sept. 13 In recent years, when they would hear the reports of lagging revenue and growing expenses, lawmakers would send a warning to agencies, special interests and anyone else listening: Dont ask for more money. It isnt there. The warnings arent quite as dire this time, but the House and Senate budget chairs are still sending a similar message despite an $845.7 million projected surplus. The money might be there, but its not time to go on a spending spree. That would at least seem to indicate that something is going to have to pay for the $500 million tax cut that Gov. Rick Scott is pitching across the state on a campaign-style swing less than a year ahead of the real thing, when he would presumably talk again about the $500 million tax cut. Meanwhile, the campaign trail proved to be tricky for Attorney General Pam Bondi after she admitted asking the governors of ce to move an execution that conflicted with her campaign kickoff. And the state said goodbye to a man all too familiar with walking the trail. READ MY LIPS: TAX CUTS MUST BE OFFSET Scott spent much of his week zig-zagging the state to push for a tax whose details he doesnt yet know. The governor has already said he will devote $500 million to reducing taxes and fees in his budget for the year that begins July 1, but has said he will solicit advice on how to get to that number. That meant a four-day, ve-city swing that took Scott to West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa and Orlando. The Its Your Money Tax Cut Tour coincided with the week when lawmakers heard a presentation on how much extra money they will have for the next budget. Right now, the number sits at $845.7 million, when high-priority items and a $1 billion reserve are factored in. But despite the extra funding much of which is onetime money legislative leaders are urging caution when it comes to big spending items. Like $500 million tax cuts. Obviously the widely reported surplus is good news for Florida, House Budget Chairman Seth McKeel, R-Lakeland, said in a statement. But despite our healthy surplus, it is not cause for dancing in the streets. The Florida Legislature has made fiscally responsible decisions that have helped to improve Floridas bottom line and I suggest that we not lose sight of our scal principles as we move forward. Senate Budget Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, sounded the same notes. In order to fund new priorities, initiatives, things that our constituents feel are important in 2013 and 2014, were going continue to have to have the discipline to review previous expenditures that were important to legislators who were duly elected in the 1990s and in 2000 and 2010, Negron said. But the GOP was likely to go along with Scotts idea in the end, particularly in an electionyear session, which means the concept will probably make it into next years budget. Democrats are already savaging the proposal, saying that it amounts to taking money that could be used on education and funneling it to the well-off. Instead of touting taxpayer giveaways that favor wealthy special interests and the politically connected, Governor Rick Scott and Republican legislative leaders should focus on the needs of working families, said House Minority Leader Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale. Rather than gimmicks, its time that Floridas leaders get serious about better funding for public schools, community colleges and universities. BONDIS SCHEDULING CONFLICT Attorney General Pam Bondi, meanwhile, found herself in a controversy that made it all the way to the Rachel Maddow Show the week after it was revealed that she asked Scott to change the date of an execution because of a scheduling con ict with her campaign kickoff. On Sept. 6, the News Service of Florida reported that the execution of death row inmate Marshall Lee Gore had been rescheduled from Tuesday, Sept. 10 to Oct. 1 because of Bondis campaign event. By Monday, Bondi was already forced to say that she was wrong to ask Scott to push the date back to accommodate the event. As a prosecutor, there was nothing more important than seeing justice done, especially when it came to the unconscionable act of murder, Bondi said in a release. I personally put two people on death row and, as attorney general, have already participated in eight executions since I took of ce, a role I take very seriously. The planned execution of Marshall Lee Gore had already been stayed twice by the courts, and we should not have requested that the date of the execution be moved, Bondi added. For his part, Scott said he wasnt aware of why the attorney general had asked for Gores death to be delayed We set the date, the attorney generals of ce asked for a postponement, so we went along with that, Scott responded when asked Monday if he thought the reason for the delay was proper. We try to comply with when other Cabinet members ask for some thing. We try to work with them. Gore, whose sanity has been the focus of efforts to block the execution, was convicted of killing two women in 1988 in MiamiDade and Columbia counties. Gores death warrant is for the murder of Robyn Novick, whose body was found in March 1988 in a rural area of Miami-Dade. By the end of the week, Democrats who have yet to round up an of cial challenger for Bondi were already using the event to try to slam both the attorney general and the governor. The Florida Democratic Party said it has submitted an openrecords request for Scott, Bondi and several of Scotts top aides to turn over anything dealing with the delay in the execution. Pam Bondi has demonstrated astoundingly bad judgment, putting partisan politics ahead of the most serious duty she has as Attorney General. But we know thats not the full story, said Joshua Karp, a party spokesman, in a press release. Governor Rick Scott has refused to answer questions about his of ces involvement in this gross breach of the public trust, directing all inquiries back to Pam Bondi. Also on the hot seat this week was Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, who is in line to become the next Democratic leader in the House but is facing some calls to step aside. Rouson, who already wasnt unanimously supported by the caucus, ran into trouble most recently when two Democratic Party staffers were red for helping him set up a separate fundraising arm for House Democrats. Top party of cials worried about a lack of fundraising coordination, and Rouson backed down. But on Friday, the current House Democratic leader, Rep. Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale, called a caucus meeting for later this month to clear the air and let Rouson try to make his case for remaining leader-designate. FAREWELL TO SHAW There were also some notable comings and goings in the world of Florida politics, including the death of longtime congressman Clay Shaw. Shaw, a Republican who served a mostly moderate coastal district from 1981 to 2007, died Tuesday at the age of 74 after a battle with lung cancer. Shaw won in 1980, as President Ronald Reagan easily defeated the incumbent Jimmy Carter, and was also a part of the GOPs Contract with America that powered a congressional takeover in 1994. Shaw, whose accomplishments included efforts to implement the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration plan, work on the 1996 Welfare Reform Act and introducing the Missing Childrens Act of 1982, was mourned by Republicans and Democrats. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, who served six years in the House with Shaw, called him a great advocate and public servant whose greatest love was always his family. And U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, DFla., also praised Shaw. I will always fondly remember Clay Shaw from my time as mayor of West Palm Beach, as someone who you could work with in a bipartisan manner and as a true gentleman, she said. Shaw was unseated in 2006 by Democrat Ron Klein as part of a Democratic wave that temporarily ended GOP control of the House. Also this week, Jerry McDaniel announced he would retire Dec. 31 from his position as budget director, which he held under both Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist. He will be replaced by Cynthia Kelly, a former top House and Senate budget staff member who has since 2010 worked as director of the Division of Administrative Services at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. And Jan Ignash, vice chancellor and chief academic of cer for the State University System, was of- cially tapped Thursday to be interim chancellor until the Board of Governors can nd a permanent replacement for Frank Brogan. Ignash is not expected to apply for the permanent position. STORY OF THE WEEK: Legislativ e leaders called for caution about an $845.7 million surplus as Gov. Rick Scott toured the state touting his proposed $500 million tax cut. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Im asking, before a person be judged and convicted in a rush to judgment, for the opportunity to appear in front of the caucus and lay out the strategy.--Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, on calls for him to step aside from House Minority Leader-designate.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)Dont spend it all in one placeBy DAVID WHITEAll wines are appropriate for all seasons. Theres nothing wrong with enjoying a simple white or crisp ros in the winter, and big reds work all year long. But our diets change with the weather. Just as we look forward to watermelon and freshfrom-the-garden tomatoes in the summer, we crave soups, stews, and roasts in winter. So our go-to wines change, as well. As the fall begins, I nd that Im craving a light red with virtually every dinner. Cru Beaujolais almost always does the trick, as its vibrant acidity and freshness offer a refreshing pairing for September dishes. If youre scratching your head, then youre probably thinking about Beaujolais Nouveau, the easy drinking, fruity wine that oods ashore every November. Both styles hail from Beaujolais, a region in France sandwiched between Burgundy and the northern Rhone, home to some of the worlds most prestigious vineyards. And both are produced with Gamay, a thin-skinned grape marked by bright red fruits that traces its lineage to Pinot Noir and an obscure white called Gouais Blanc. But unlike Beaujolais Nouveau, Cru Beaujolais is serious; the wines can offer wonderful depth and complexity and age for decades. And right now, theyre extremely well priced. As Maggie Hoffman, the drinks editor at Serious Eats, explained last year, [Cru Beaujolais] offers some of the best value in red wine that you can nd its seriously well-made, balanced, food-friendly, delicious, and evocative of place, and its way underpriced. Consumer confusion helps explain why Cru Beaujolais is undervalued. Ever since Georges Duboeuf introduced his Nouveau to the U.S. marketplace three decades ago, Americans have associated Beaujolais with the mass-produced, gimmicky plonk that sells by the truckload every November. Beaujolais Nouveau has certainly improved in recent years, but the whole concept still seems silly; its bizarre to celebrate Beaujolais new harvest with cheap wine that has been own across the world. Consumer preference also explains why Cru Beaujolais is underappreciated. When consumers think of light wines, they tend to think of whites and ross. For Americans, especially, a light red is an oxymoron -reds are supposed to be dark, powerful, and served alongside steak. Cru Beaujolais hails from one of ten small villages in the northern part of this French wine region. Just as Napa Valleys sub-appellations think Stags Leap, Oakville, Howell Mountain, and the like boast of special growing conditions, so do these ten villages. Good wine shops should stock wines from Fleurie, Morgon, Moulin--Vent, and other Beaujolais crus. Most Nouveau is produced in southern Beaujolais. That said, many artisanal producers are working to change the reputation of the south by keeping yields low, rigorously sorting their grapes, avoiding manipulation in the cellar, and making real wines. Their bottlings are worth seeking out, especially if you have a trusted wine merchant to help guide you. Once upon a time, oenophiles everywhere knew that Beaujolais could produce some of the worlds most complex, aromatic, and lively wines. The region still produces gorgeous wines, but theyre mostly ignored. So before word gets out, be sure to stock your cellar.David White is the founder and editor of Terroirist.com, which was named Best Overall Wine Blog at the 2013 Wine Blog Awards.

From Page 10AI love nature. I love being outdoors and taking long walks in the woods around here, she says. Sandy grew up in the Midwest, left school before graduating and hitchhiked around the country. She ended up in Tallahassee in the late s. When she rst moved there she lived in a Chickee Hut, a native Seminole dwelling, built by her friend Barry Wood. Always drawn to the earth, and its offerings, Sandy likes to learn by doing. She is primarily a self-taught potter and musician, although she took some private lessons along the way. You learn by practice. I never had formal training, but I had good teachers, she states con dently. For years she created utilitarian pottery, re ning her skills, creating handsome pots, cups, bowls, platters and more recently, slabs with imprinted animal tracks. I have been seeing (wild animal) tracks for years, and then a few years ago I decided to start making plaster casts of some of the tracks Id nd, she says. I have a little kit that I can take out to the woods when I nd a good track, Sandy informs. It takes about two hours for the plaster to dry. Then its ready. It is a passion she says, I have a closet full of them. After collecting these casts of wild cats, bears, alligators along with smaller animals like rabbits, armadillo and raccoons, one day a thought came to her. I decided to start pressing the plaster tracks into the clay, she states, And now I use them consistently in my pottery. A visitor from Minnesota saw her track pottery and contacted her about doing some pieces for the International Wolf Center, a wolf rescue operation. They sent her plaster casts of wolf tracks, and now she creates pieces they sell in the store, and online shop, to support the work done to save the wolves. Sammy built her studio, a small, screened-in space on stilts that is set apart from the house. It holds her wheel, kiln and shelves for nished pieces, greenware and kiln rests. This space wasnt so lucky during the ood last year, she says with regret. I was lucky that I didnt lose it, but I had to completely rewire my kiln. And so she did. Add electrician to her skill set. The Tedders, in their woods along the Sopchoppy River, have found the place they want to be. The art they create is their humble expression. It is simply a reflection and documentation of the rhythms and imprints of the place they share and love. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 Page 15APAMPER YOUR POOCHArtist Pro le: Sammy & Sandy Tedder By PETRA SHUFFSpecial to The NewsOur Pamper your Pooch event held Saturday, Sept. 14, had lots of participants and volunteers.

Our local veterinarians Dr. Faith Hughes, Heidi and Reed Guhrt, and owner of Canine Clips Carla Manor deserve a special thanks for giving up their free Saturday to take care of nail clipping, micro chipping, and the less pleasant task of anal gland expression. We very much appreciate the donation of all natural doggie treats from Purrs and Waggs, and the pet pillows sewn by Patricia Applegate, items that made pampering the pooches complete! The baked goods donated by Karen and Andy with Karens Kitchen & Bakery were a special treat! And of course this event would not have been successful without the support of our residents that brought their pooches out for a pampering. We had a lot of fun, and hope to see you all again in the spring. CHATs Petra Shuff and County Commissioner Ralph Thomas bathe Boo Radley, a 4-year-old black pug owned by Marilyn Lawhon.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 www.thewakullanews.com The autumn equinox is Sunday, Sept. 21. It is the of cial beginning of fall as the sun continues its daily retreat into the southern sky and the northern hemisphere repeats its regular annual tilt away from solar exposure. The equinox is calculated based on the equators day and night length. Given Wakulla Countys place on the earth, the night will not be longer than the day until the evening of Thursday, Sept. 26, when the night will be one minute longer than the day. The official equinox date is the time-honored mass market method of notifying humanity to be on the lookout for cooler weather. This knowledge of the planets seasonal cycle was recorded by the earliest cultures and likely predates written records. The creatures and plants which populate the woods, swamps and pastures of Wakulla County need no notice from the almanacs editors to recognize weather changes are underway. All are preparing in their own way for the inevitable dormant season with short days, reduced food, and lower temperatures. Late summer fruit, berries and nuts are in full production. Yaupons, sparkleberries, dogwoods, pines, persimmons, oaks, hickories and many more have a nutritional offering for any wild creature with space in their stomach or cheeks. The animal population is packing on the calories and weight in anticipation of leaner times soon to be here. All instinctively know it is time to eat, and eat some more. The plants and trees provide this cornucopia as a way to prepare their progeny for the next growing season. Most of their output is consumed by birds, mammals and insect, but a small percentage of seed will survive to expand the species range and replace winter losses. Bright orange persimmons, red dogwood and holly berries, and blue beautyberries use their distinctive color and shape to attract birds and animals. In exchange for a free meal, some of the seed in the fruit is relocated. Wakulla Countys insects are diligently preparing for winters onslaught. While most will not survive the rst frost, a percentage of their eggs persist and pupa will emerge next spring. Likely the most popular late summer/early autumn insects are butter ies. The most commonly known are relatively large and brightly colored, but many are small and unembellished without distinctive features. This has been a good year for butterflies in Wakulla County. The ample rains provided excellent forage for caterpillar phase of their life cycle, though there were many complaints about damage to shrubs and gardens. Some butter ies, particularly the monarch and cloudless sulphurs, will migrate south to warmer latitudes. Many will remain in Wakulla County laying their eggs in the most hospitable environment possible. Under ideal conditions butter ies will produce several generations in the warm season. Eggs laid late in the year will enter a dormant phase with the onset of cold weather, but emerge the following spring. Other short-lived insect, such as stinkbugs, handle the winter differently. During cold weather, young stinkbugs will hibernate in leaf litter or under tree bark until the onset of warmer temperatures. Their two-month long life is put on hold until the weather warms up. They then return to being quick reproducing pest.

Steve is one of the key people leading Wakulla County into the industry of Aquaculture. His visions and community trust are leading the way to a bright and sustainable seafood industry here in the Wakulla Community. Following a presentation outlining this unique and exciting method of farming, there will be a question and answer opportunity for the audience to attendee can ask questions. Aquaculture is nding its place in seafood industries all over the world. Our overwhelming demand for seafood is having a notable impact on our seas. Aquaculture is a way we can begin to maintain our supply of seafood and the jobs our seas have provided for hundreds of years. Oysters will be the main focus of the presentation as Wakulla has some of the richest waters for aquaculture in the Gulf. There will be samples of farm-raised oysters for attendees. Steve is looking forward to presenting this important information and discussing the great benets aquaculture will bring to Wakulla County. Wakulla County contributes millions of dollars to the overall Florida economy. These numbers will increase and spill over into the world economy when what we are developing for sustainable seafood is nurtured and developed locally.

By AMANDA MAYORamayor@thewakullanews.netThe final score of Friday nights match up against the Marianna Bulldogs ended up being 27-6. However, with three turnovers in the red zone and a fumble by Wakulla that was returned by Marianna for an 83 yard touchdown, one might argue that the score should have been at least 45-0. In the first half the team made it inside the red zone ve times and only came out with seven points. Weve got to get better about taking advantage of those situations, Head Coach Scott Klees said. Wakullas offense, Klees said, took a stop back compared to their previous game against Navarre as far as production, though he assures theyve been working hard to get better for next week. As for his special teams performance, Klees says they have some work to do as well. With a punt that only went for 1 yard and a missed extra point, the War Eagles will be looking to improve not just this week but throughout the season. Klees commended his defense, though, saying, our defense played tremendous. Im very happy with what we saw from them. GAME RECAP During the rst drive of the game, Wakulla found themselves opting to go for a fourth down conversion a decision that proved bene cial as Malik Thomas managed to gain a rst down on a carry that was followed shortly thereafter by a run into the end zone by sophomore quarterback Feleipe Franks. With a successful extra point kicked by Franks, the War Eagles were up 7-0 early in the rst quarter. Wakullas defense then held the Bulldogs, forcing them into a fourth and one situation in which they opted to punt. A penalty on Wakulla for running into the kicker caused possession to stay with Marianna, resulting in a rst down.

In the immediate aftermath of the regular-season finale at Richmond a week ago Saturday night, shame and ignominy were visited upon the Cup series, when the fix was allegedly put on by Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR), which reportedly ordered one of its team cars to intentionally spin and bring out an outcome-altering caution a move that benefited one of the MWR drivers. (For more on that controversy see the commentary below.) But leave it to NASCAR to think nothing of asking its rain-soaked patrons at Chicagoland Sunday to endure not only a 90-minute delay to start the race due to bad weather but a subsequent ve-hour-and-10-minute red- ag eternity that suspended the race restart until almost 9 p.m. Chicago time. The 11-hour overall odyssey of the race itself came down to a late caution that split the eldhalf came in, half stayed out, with most of the pit rowers taking just two tires. Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch set out for the checkered flag on the restart with 23 laps left. Kenseth, pushed by Kevin Harvick, eventually opened up a one-second lead over Busch with seven laps to go, and thats the way it ended: Kenseth, Busch, Harvick. Outliers Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Joey Logano both retired early with engine troubles, nishing 35th and 37th respectively. Kenseth takes an eight point lead over Kyle Busch into Race 2 of The Chase this Sunday at New Hampshire. THE RICHMOND FINAL-CAUTION FLAP: Early last week, it looked like NASCAR was about to hugely blow the right decision in the sportshaking uproar that came out of the nal caution at Richmond two weeks ago. While appropriate measures were taken against Michael Waltrip Racing for the alleged fixed caution, which still has not drawn an admission by Clint Bowyer, the sanctions that axed MWRs Martin Truex Jr. from the field and annexed Ryan Newman were laudable. But that only righted one of two wrongs. That still left one deserving driver, Jeff Gordon, out in the cold. Gordon was in the process of driving himself into The Chase when that infamous yellow ew with eight laps to go. But when the race resumed, with the cars now bunched together, Joey Logano edged him out for the Chase spot, and the whole issue of what was fair seemed to be occulted by the bigger picture at the immediate front of the eld, where Newman was involved. What was fair would have been to freeze the nish of the race right at the nal caution point, which would have placed Gordon in the nal show along with Newman. It took them nearly a week to come around to addressing the unfairness of Gordons situation. Thankfully, NASCAR went a little further and made the right call, adding Gordon at the last moment to The Chase field prior to Chicagoland.Alan Ross has authored 29 books on sports history.

Sportland 2013 THE COOL DOWN LAP Kenseth wins rain-marred Chicagoland Chase race By AMY LEESpecial to The NewsLast week the Lady War Eagles Golf Team participated in two tournaments.

Individual scores for Wakulla had Kenzie Lee placing third overall with a score of 50, and Micahlyn Jeziorski placing fourth with a score of 51. Alyssa Stokley scored a 56 and Rachel Woofter scored 65. On Thursday, the team played at Golden Eagle Golf Course with Maclay, and Lincoln. Wakulla scored a 233 coming in second behind Maclay. Individual scores had Kenzie Lee placing second overall with a score of 50 and Micahlyn Jeziorski tied for third with a score of 52. Rachel Woofter scored a 65 and Alyssa Stokley scored a 68.

Riptide undefeated at tourney By JOEY JACOBSRMS CoachThe RMS football team was on the road once again last Thursday, this time travelling to Perry to tangle with the Taylor County Bulldogs. In a game plagued by special teams turnovers, the Bears fell to the dogs by a score of 34-2. We had only ve possessions the entire game, and four of those were in the rst half, RMS Coach Jacobs said. The Bears opening possession showed promise, when RMS drove down inside of the Taylor County 15 yard line. That drive ended when the bulldogs intercepted an errant RMS pass. Taylor County didnt waste any time parlaying the turnover into points, when they scored a touchdown two plays later. Because of the plethora of turnovers, RMS offense stayed on the sideline and its defense stayed on the eld. The fatigue of the defense was evident, as the Taylor County aerial assault relentlessly attacked the worn down Bear defense. The loss dropped RMS record to 0-3, the rst time ever in Coach Jacobs tenure as head coach. This is uncharted waters for me, the coach stated. We just have to work a little harder and be a whole lot smarter. Riversprings will be back on the eld Thursday, Sept. 19, when they take on the Seahawks of Franklin County in Carrabelle.

From Page 1BOn fourth and about three, the Bulldogs almost completed a pass to convert, but it was broken up by the War Eagles defense. An unsuccessful drive by both teams followed, ending the first quarter. The pace picked up some in the second quarter as Bryan Nichols picked up about eight yards on rst and 10, and then completed another pass on the next play to gain the rst down. Quarterback Feleipe Franks then passed to Corion Knight who made a leaping catch to gain another first down on Mariannas 32 yard line. On third down and about ve, Franks completed a pass to older brother Jordan Franks for another rst down at the 17. However, hopes for another Wakulla touchdown were extinguished by an interception in the end zone. Mariannas next possession was unsuccessful, forcing them to punt to Keith Gavin who ran the ball in to the Bulldogs 34 yard line. With first and 10, a penalty on Wakulla for holding would result in the loss of 10 yards, putting them on the 44 yard line. On second and long, Franks found Gavin at the 29 yard line and then a Franks to Franks completion resulted in a gain of about seven and a rst down. The War Eagles threatened to score again with second down and four on the 16 yard line, but a fumble on the play was picked up by Marianna. Another fumble by Wakulla came during their next possession with eight seconds left in the rst half. The War Eagles tried to convert on fourth down and goal, but a turnover in the red zone was run in for a Marianna touchdown. A blocked kick kept the War Eagles up 7-6 at the end of the half. For the kick-off at the start of the third quarter, Feleipe Franks kicked the ball into the end zone for a touchback. On third and ve the Bulldogs gained a first down on the 31 yard line, but on the following third and 10 pressure by the War Eagles defense would force Mariannas quarterback throw it away. Wakulla scored again with 6:06 left in the third when Monterious Loggins carried the ball into the end zone. The extra point kicked by Franks was good, putting the score at 14-6. An interception made by the defense would put the ball back in Wakullas possession quickly, leading to a Franks to Franks connection on third down for a touchdown. With three seconds left in the third the score was 21-6. During the War Eagles first possession in the fourth quarter, Marianna recovered a fumble made when quarterback Franks was caught unprepared for the snap. However, a later fumble by the Bulldogs on a third down put the ball back in the hands of the Eagles. The last drive of the game proved successful for Wakulla as a pass was completed to Gavin on third down and the fourth touchdown by Wakulla was made by Malik Thomas carry. The final score was 27-6. UP NEXT: TAYLOR COUNTY The War Eagles will take on Taylor County High in Perry on Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:30. Of the match up Klees said, They are very well coached. Not only that but, according to Klees, the Taylor County Bulldogs have a few players, including a receiver, who are already looking to sign with division one schools. They are very talented.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 Page 5BBy MARTY COHENMIAMI GARDENS Still drenched in sweat, Jon Harrison summed it up succinctly: I cant give it to Miami. Its on us. The Florida center wasnt being defiant, wasnt talking trash, just spoke the undeniable truth following last Saturdays agonizingly ugly 21-16 loss to Miami at Sun Life Stadium. Yes, the Hurricanes celebrated at the conclusion of the contest, and then celebrated some more, and will likely begin banging the drum about how theyre back. Whatever, to the victor goes the spoils, but frankly, Miami didnt do much to come out on the winning end. The Hurricanes basically sat back and gladly let the Gators implode. One of the worst clichs in sports is we shot ourselves in the foot, when describing opportunities lost due basically to poor execution. Well if thats the case, Floridas offense had a lot of gurative amputees leaving the locker room. Five turnovers, including three in the Red Zone, simply wasnt going to get it done at any level against any opponent. An inability of a team that prides itself on physical, power football, to pick up a few inches on fourth down deep in the opponents territory wasnt going to get it done. Its somewhat remarkable because so many of the numbers from this game would indicate complete domination by Florida. The Gators out-gained the Canes 413 to 212, yielding just an incredible 69 yards in the nal three quarters. At one point, the home side went more than 28 minutes without picking up a rst down. The hosts punted nine times (punter Pat ODonnell, who averaged 49.0 yards after getting one blocked, was the Canes best player), went 1 for 11 on third-down conversions, rushed for a mere 50 yards on 28 attempts, held the ball for just 21:40, and on and on . It all didnt matter. All the positive thingsFlorida accomplished Saturday afternoon didnt matter. Five turnovers theres no reason to sugarcoat it, the Gators gave this one away, plain and simple. Its going to be a hard one to digest, and to make matters worse, the Gators have two weeks to stew over this before getting back on the eld to begin SEC play against Tennessee. In the aftermath of the numbing setback, the players said all the right things. Still a long season ahead. No pointing fingers. Have to learn from it and get better, etc., etc. All this is true, but from a psychologicalstandpoint, this one will linger. Even with a lot of the same players, every season is new and what happened in the past wont alter this years results. But beginning at Texas A&M, with a strong secondhalf comeback in Game Two, the 2012 Gators fostered a belief that they would prevail in the end, that they were stronger and would make plays in the second half.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gatorsBy TIM LINAFELTFor all that he accomplished in Florida States season-opening win at Pittsburgh, Jameis Winston did it all without having to face much in the way of adversity. It turns out he might be pretty good at that too. With 11:31 to play in Florida States eventual 62-7 victory over Nevada, Winston had completed only two of his rst ve pass attempts, failed to lead the offense into the end zone despite having rst-and-goal at the 1 and, even worse, had just thrown the rst interception of his young career. The Wolf Pack then scored to take a 7-3 lead, sacked Winston for an 11-yard loss on the rst play of FSUs ensuing drive, and had the 73,847 in attendance at Doak Campbell Stadium wondering if the team theyd seen on Labor Day had merely been a mirage. As he stood on the sideline contemplating his next move, Winston felt a tap on his shoulder and turned around to nd his head coach, Jimbo Fisher. He didnt give me a long speech. He didnt give me a lecture, Winston said. He just said Go higher. Here it is. Adversity is here. What are you going to do? Winston responded by going higher. And farther. And faster. Rather than wilt under the heavy expectations of a rst-time home crowd and the pressure that might come with trailing an opponent from the Mountain West Conference as any normal freshman might reasonably be expected to do Winston instead rebounded with an offensive performance that, in some ways, was every bit as impressive as his debut. Starting with a possession that began on his own 8-yard line near the end of the second quarter, Winston and the Florida State offense engineered nine consecutive scoring drives that amounted to 59 unanswered points over the games nal 35:54. What I liked about it was he made a mistake and he didnt get gun shy, Fisher said. He went right back into it and started making throws and making plays. After his interception, a ball that slipped out of his hand and sailed high and into the arms of Nevadas Bryson Keeton, Winston didnt throw another incompletion. He finished the game on a 13-for-13 run that accounted for 184 yards and two touchdown passes. By the time he exited the game midway through the third quarter, Winston had completed 15 of 18 passes (83.3 percent) for 214 yards and three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing). The way we practice and how Jimbo coaches, its all about adversity, Winston said. Its all about facing adversity. Me as a quarterback, Coach Fisher and Coach (Randy) Sanders are always pounding on me, pounding on me, saying Youve got to go to the next play. Adversity, you cant live on that. Youve got to keep going. Through two games, Winstons stats read like a Madden NFL box score. On rookie mode. Hes completed 40 of 45 passes good for a sterling 88.9 completion percentage for 570 yards. Hes accounted for eight of FSUs 13 touchdowns (six passing, two rushing). And, including the interception he threw against Nevada, has had only three of his pass attempts the season even hit the ground. Presented with those numbers, Jimbo Fisher smiled and said, He needs some work. That may be true, but its hard to imagine Winston throwing any prettier passes than he did during FSUs offensive charge in the second quarter. He threw a high, tight spiral to Kenny Shaw who had his facemask yanked while running his route in the corner of the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown that put FSU back on top after falling behind 7-3. When the throw came, I was like Dang, thats a pretty good throw, Shaw said. After FSUs defense forced a three-and-out with less than two minutes to go in the half, Winston struck again with a 19-yard sideline pass to Christian Green that was threaded between two Wolf Pack defenders, then followed that up with a 24-yard touchdown pass to a leaping Rashad Greene. It was a tough throw, Green said. It looked like the safety and the corner were there, but he made a heck of a throw and all I had to do was catch it. All tight balls that he stuck in windows and made real nice plays on, Fisher said. In a schedule that includes road trips to Clemson and Gainesville, Winston will certainly be challenged more than he was here tonight. But it was still his rst real taste of a challenge, his first real mistake of a throw and his rst real home game in front of fans painfully anxious to watch him meet or exceed the nearly impossible standard that he set for himself. So far, hes passed every test. The season-opener was probably a little more fun for me, Winston said with a smile. When youre at home, people love you then theyre like Hey, come on now. Youre still at home. Asked about his accomplishments so far, Winston deftly de- ected praise away from himself and onto his teammates, receivers and offensive linemen chief among them. He insists that, as long as the team is winning, hell never spend much time evaluating his own performances. Victories are team. Losses, thats always the quarterback, Winston said. I think I was just born like that.

Page 6B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 thewakullanews.comWeve decided to title this article An Endangered Phenomenon, as my friend, my love, my Patty suggested it as the title, and Ive agreed with her. To start off Ive always had a passing interest in butterflies/ moths-lepidoptera, and like most of my readers soon learned the difference between the spectacular Tiger Swallowtail, and the drabber (but no less impressive) Monarch, and it is the latter we shall discuss. I say we, for though Im a novice on this subject, Patty Murray is an expert. Shes studied butter ies of the world for years, and photographed over 40 species of them going through their entire life cycles, from super tiny eggs through caterpillars into the pupa, and then to the lovely creatures we see itting or utterbying us on warm days. It is her knowledge passed onto me that is the foundation of this article. I feel it is more hers than mine, and she deserves the credit. She is a professional nature photographer, having her own agent, and has sold many of her photos of these lovely winged insects for years. It all started this last spring when she was down visiting me. As hard as we tried, we could not nd a Monarch. Then this summer while I visited her in New Jersey we failed to see any as well! Pattis yard is a magnet for butterflies as shes planted numerous owering plants that are especially attractive to numerous species, and that includes the various milkweed plants that Monarchs are particularly attracted to. Then I returned to Wakulla County in midAugust, and even down here Ive failed to see one, not even in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge where theyll have their annual Monarch Festival the last week end of October! Is the phenomenom of migrating Monarchs about to end? To start off these creatures weigh roughly halfgram (1/56 of an ounce), and are true insects having six legs. For years no one knew where thy disappeared in the winter, then nally in 1975 a professor named Dr. Urquhart was tipped off by locals in the Michoacan state of Mexico that he could nd them in the winter in the Mountains there at roughly 10,000 feet. To Dr. Urquharts surprise there were roughly a billion wintering there by roosting on Oyamel Fir trees. At last it was known they wintered south of the U.S.! In the 1980s Patty and her sister Betty visited their wintering area and were numbed by the thousands upon thousands they saw, clouds of them hovering around these r trees, those that had died lay like fall leaves upon the ground an unbelievable spectacle!This small ephemeral insect migrates up to 2,000 miles each fall. The Monarchs in the eastern U.S. y from as far north as Canada to mountain sites in Mexico. There are no experienced Monarchs to follow on these migrations. The Monarchs making this journey, all moving south, are four generations removed from the previous wintering population. As days lengthen in Mexico and weather warms the Monarchs that have been in a state of reproductive diapause or a nonbreeding state become more active. Mating begins in the wintering colonies usually sometime in February, then, beginning in March, the Monarchs depart these colonies and begin to move north. As these long-lived individuals this generation of Monarchs lives from 8 to 9 months reach the southern states the females lay eggs on various milkweed species. Their lives now nished, most die. The next generation moves further north as the temperatures warm and the population normally grows in numbers. This is when conditions are good. The lives of these later generations last between a few days to a month. Monarchs have always been plagued by dangers during their lives. Predators such mantids, assassin bugs, ambush bugs, and spiders, especially crab, wait on or near owers, well camou aged and concealed they pounce on an unsuspecting Monarch as it drinks nectar. Patty found a female Praying Mantis resting on the owers of a Butter y Bush one early fall when Monarchs moved through her yard. The mantis contentedly remained on a single ower cluster for several days until the blooming period ended. Later she discovered the wings of ve Monarch butter ies on the ground under this spot. Parasitoids such as Tachinid Flies and Braconid Wasps attack Monarch caterpillars. They lay their eggs on the caterpillars. When these eggs hatch the larvae burrow inside the caterpillars and feed until they are ready to pupate. Some years parasitoids are more common than others. Monarchs, especially the caterpillars, are vulnerable to highly contagious viruses, which can decimate individuals grouped close together on milkweed. Then there is a common protozoan which is widespread and can weaken or kill Monarchs. Monarchs also encounter other hazards new to them, including the growing of genetically modi ed corn for the production of ethanol in the Midwest that is resistant to herbicides is destroying the milkweed plants that the Monarchs need for reproduction. The herbicides protect the corn, but devastate the Monarch host plants. As more and more acreage is put into this type of production, the Monarch habitat shrinks. Continual development in other areas of the country diminish host plant habitat. Extremes of weather, especially droughts can also play havoc with Monarch reproduction. In the Oyamel Fir Forests of Mexico a threat to the Monarch wintering sites occurs when locals cut the forest. A thinning of the rs thick growth changes the temperature dynamics of the forests that protects the wintering Monarchs from environmental extremes. Storms that once were minor now can cause catastrophic mortality. Every year a census is taken of the area of r trees occupied by the clustering Monarchs. This past year researchers recorded less than three ares of coverage, the lowest ever. In the 1990s, the Monarchs spread across many acres. A sign at the Rosario Reserve proclaimed the presence of 35 million Monarchs. In 1991 Patty and Betty tagged 4,000 butter ies. There was no need to chase or capture individuals. They stood in place, reached out and casually plucked a Monarch from a branch. Then the Monarchs took ight on a sunny day they lled the sky like a blizzard of orange snow akes. One butter- y they tagged on this visit didnt play by the known rules, reaching the southern states and dying. Professor Urquhart, for whom they tagged the Monarchs, informed Patty that one of their tagged individuals had been found unexpectedly in a park in New York. What a migration! Monarch caterpillars feeding on milkweed have immunity against ingested toxic heart poisons (cardiac glycosides) that they sequester in their bodies. During transformation (Pupa or chrysalis stage) these poisons are incorporated in the adult Monarchs. Although thought to provide protection from predation from birds, two species Black-backed Oriole and Black-headed Grosbeak in the Mexican wintering sites regularly feed on the Monarchs without adverse effects.outdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsAre migrating monarchs an endangered phenomenon?Weathers hot, but people are out on the water Nature Quest BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHWhere is our fall weather? Pretty hot this past weekend but it didnt keep people off the water. Mike Falk Jr. was out Sunday morning and said it looked like someone was having a shing tournament though I did not hear of any planned. Mike fished with his 6-year-old son Carson and they got their limit of reds and released about six or seven. They used live shrimp under a cork and on the bottom and Carson caught a 26 inch red using a Cotton Cordell Rattlin Red n. They caught their sh on the hour of the rising tide. Capt. David Fife shed last Tuesday and caught his limit of trout and reds. He caught the reds on minnows on the bottom and caught the trout on a white Gulp under a Cajun Thunder. He said he released quite a few trout. On Sunday David took some buddies from North Carolina and they caught some nice trout, reds and ounder. He was shing around the oyster bars near Oyster Bay and was using live minnows. Three of the trout were 20 plus inches. I talked with Capt. Randy Peart and he said he hadnt been in several weeks but keeps up on whats going on at the Ecofina with Capt. James Burke and others who sh down there. He said shing is extremely slow down there right now. The water is still extremely dirty and there is a lot of oating grass. I talked with JR and he said the same thing about the Aucilla. He did say a few sh are starting to be caught but its still pretty lousy. Both Randy and JR said there had been a sh kill from the Aucilla down past the Econ na. The only thing affected have been hardhead cat sh, some ounder and bait sh. JR was told it was a fungus on the bottom that was depleting the oxygen. Years ago we had the same thing at Shell Point. I shed one day and we caught our limit. Went back the next day and couldnt even get a bite. I noticed cat sh up on the top dying and for weeks you could go and not get a bite. I guess that is the same thing they are encountering down there. Hopefully its clearing up since a few sh are being caught. Harrison King went diving out of Carrabelle Saturday with some friends and he said they had another great day. They shot nine gag grouper, a few red group, hog snapper and some black snapper. They were diving in 40 to 60 feet of water. I shed with Dr. Jim ONeil and party on Saturday and we had one red, one big ounder and six nice trout. We missed three good reds and threw back probably 30 trout and a pile of small jacks and blue sh. On Sunday I went out for a few hours on the last of the falling tide on the same spot we shed on Saturday. There was good water movement and there was bait everywhere and Spanish, trout, blue, jacks and lady sh were busting in them everywhere you looked. I caught and released probably 40 trout and about 15 would have been legal. Also had two nice Spanish and I dont know how many small jacks. They are out there feeding on glass minnows and pelicans and small terns were diving everywhere. I caught sh on the Gulp under a Cajun Thunder, a straight jig and gulp and a Rattlin Redfin. When the tide quit they quit. Just a couple more weeks til snapper season. It will be open for two weeks starting Oct. 1. Glen Peel said they were out on an overnight trip and threw back red snapper that would have weighed over 15 pounds. He said they caught some real big grouper and Glen caught his rst sail sh ever trolling for dolphin. Remember to know your limits and be careful out there. Good luck and good shing!

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 Page 7B This past week say a lot happening in the tropics and was a great reminder to everyone to be mindful of the ever-changing conditions. We are entering into the busier times of the hurricane season and need to remain alert and not let our guard down. A quick look at our recent history is evidence that even a tropical storm can cause signi cant damage! It never hurts to be prepared for the worst while hoping for the best. While this may seem like we cover the same things each year, and sometimes more than once, it is in most peoples nature to think that we have been spared so far, and there is no need to be overly prepared. The recent flooding in Colorado has brought to the forefront just how important our safety is and how much we are lucky to have more than a few minutes warning when a hurricane, tropical storm or depression is heading our way. You can download the National Weather Service preparedness brochure from http:// www.nws.noaa.gov/ om/hurricane/pdfs/ hurricane_safety.pdf. Another area we have been fortunate in this year is the safety of boaters in the region. This does not prevent us from training and preparing for the worst. As last weeks article highlighted, we strive to remain sharp and ready if and when the call comes. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www. uscgaux.net for membership information or contact our Flotilla Staff Of cer for Human Resources Fran Keating at email@example.com. As Sherrie says, safe boating is no accident preparedness can make the difference! a peek into life on and under the water Water Ways Water WaysLocal writers share their experiences Coast Guard Station Panama City .........................................................

Have you ever observed someone who is learning to drive a car? I can say that the people I have watched seem to suffer from sensory overload. Theyre almost constantly moving the steering wheel to compensate (or over compensate) for the cars position between the lines on the road. All the while watching dashboard gauges, some more important than others, watching mirrors, taking directions from the co-pilot, and hopefully not driving up on the sidewalks. Now fast forward a few months (or years) and that same person can be found talking on the phone, eating, and driving simultaneously. That multi-tasking behavior may be ill-advised but its a reality today and an example of how we manage complex skills. In time we build knowledge, skill, muscle memory, and comfort, often with a measure of complacency. If you want to get technical most of what we do is the result of what we call muscle memory. Walking for example is something we have over-trained ourselves to do. Most people do not consciously think in order to walk, it just happens. When you do something over and over you effectively train your muscles and brain to do that task without thinking it. Various studies have been done and the number of times it takes depends on the muscles involved and the complexity of the task. In diving, muscle memory is extremely important to ones safety and ef ciency underwater. We see new divers fumbling for things like pressure gauges or the BCDs power in ator. After as few as 10 or 15 dives it becomes second nature for them to reach for those tools when wanted. With experience, divers work to reduce the complex idiosyncrasies that plague our sport. I see no shortage of problems that our customers are trying to solve; even seasoned divers are still working out things as they continue to make more and more complex dives. Tech divers are advised to never dive a new con guration before rst testing it for new complications in a pool. What Im getting at is that divers fresh out of basic scuba class might think twice before picking up a spear gun or a camera or getting into cave diving or rebreathers. You need to let your brain sort out new skills to build comfort and muscle memory on the scuba basics like monitoring cylinder pressure, donning equipment, and maintaining neutral buoyancy. When these tasks are second nature, they no longer become distracting factors to your adventures. You are now free to experience the underwater world stress free. When you make major equipment changes like a new BC or regulator, moving from single cylinders to back-mount doubles, side-mount (one cylinder worn on each side of the body), or rebreathers, there are new muscles memories to develop too. Thats why Gregg and I spent the afternoon in the pool, working with a new rebreather platform called the Prism2. We made a series of changes to the unit and needed to test them in a controlled environment before rolling off a boat or exploring a cave. And we found problems with solutions that will now alter our con guration design! Its a learning experience, a retraining of your body, and we embrace it enthusiastically.Coast Guard Auxiliary ReportsBy Carolyn Brown Treadon AUXILIARY U.S.COAST GUARD Like us on newsThe WakullaUnderwaterWakullaBy Travis Kersting Living with VISION LOSS? special microscopic or telescopic glasses can help you see better.

This may sound strange to anyone who does not collect points, but there is a whole different world for those who know a world where free nights in ve star hotels, and rst class plane tickets are things that you can experience without having to oat a loan. Companies value their loyal travelers, and they offer extra perks to those special guests. Even if you are not a frequent traveler you should get a loyalty number with hotels, airlines and rental car companies if you think youll use their services. Marriott offers loyalty members promotions like stay two nights and the third is free. If you were already staying somewhere, why not take part? Better still, may hotels have branded credit cards. Some of these credit cards come with an offer of status with the hotel for their annual fee, or even free nights. Many times, the free night is worth more than the cost of the credit card. Other perks may include late checkout, free breakfast, or some amenity such as bottled waters, fresh fruit, or cookies. Free night can be inexpensive like Radissons 9,000 points at a less expensive property, or pricey like Hiltons 100,000 plus points. Each chain has sweet spots where the redemption is a great value like Hiltons Conrad Hotel, in the Maldives, or Priority Clubs Willard, in Washington, DC. For a smaller number of points you can often upgrade your paid stay to a suite or a club level room. Club level rooms offer many bene ts such as breakfast, snacks, beverages, and evening cocktails, and a lounge area to mingle or work in. In an expensive city this can be a huge money saving tactic. Rental car companies have gotten into the loyalty business as well. Some member offers have included a free night after two rentals. Because youve essentially pre-registered, the time savings when you pick up your car, and with some companies the ability to choose your own car makes joining worthwhile. Airlines have different types of frequent flier programs. Some points programs are based on a dollar value, while others are based on a chart that is determined by the individual airline. In addition to your points there is co-pay, covering taxes, fees and fuel surcharges, which varies widely between airlines. When it is time to redeem your points, just search the airlines website for free flights that meet your parameters. While most folks redeem their points for a round trip coach ticket in the US, this is not the maximum value for your points. British Airways is inexpensive for short trips like Tallahassee to Miami for 4000 points plus a $15 copay, but expensive for Europe at 100,000 points in business class plus an $1100 copay. Instead choose United business for100, 000 points and $100 copay. The best award of all is American Airlines Explorer Award, which allows you multiple ights in a region for not much more than the points redemption for a round trip ticket. Whole websites are devoted to how to get extra points thorough things like credit cards, home purchases, home sales, mortgages, satellite TV service, bank accounts, debit cards, investment accounts, dining and even shopping at the stores you already frequent. Sites like www. millionmilesecrets.com, www.thepointsguy.com, and www.freefrequent yermiles.com offer a great overview. Now that you recognize why people collect points, just be aware of the other constant. Over time the value of those miles will be depreciated, often without notice. So make a plan, earn your points, and then enjoy the trip of your dreams.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.

They switch over to their lunch menu at 11 a.m. Breakfast entrees include strawberry and whipped cream pancakes, the huge steak and cheese omelette, biscuit and sausage gravy and my personal favorite, their homefries. At Myra Jeans, the homefries begin as humble whole potatoes. They chop em up on a at grill with fresh onions and bell peppers and a bit of salt & pepper. Then they leave em alone till they brown up just right. Sounds good, eh? Try Tif es Skillet: A pile of these tasty taters covered with two eggs, country fried steak and white gravy. It comes with toast or biscuit and goes great with Myra Jeans hot coffee or what the heck a glass of champagne. Myra Jeans = A Happier You! Since the 1980s, Myra Jeans has been preparing the grits, frying up the bacon and pouring plate sized pancakes for the good people of Wakulla. Not The Nuttings Like us on newsThe Wakulla

Page 14B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, September 19, 2013 thewakullanews.comTop islands for snorkeling in CaribbeanBy LINDA CARTERSpecial to The NewsExperience the magic of the under sea world. Take a glass bottom boat and marvel as the sea life darts past, completely oblivious to the world above them. Fish in multiple brilliant colors, and unusual shape; brain coral; stag horn coral; sponges; sea fans; the shapes and colors are as varied as a landscape. Its incentive enough to don mask, ns and snorkel for the total immersion experience. Located off the coast of Honduras, Roatans snorkeling is second to none. Find your way to the West Bay Beach, and rent a chair near the In- nity Resort. Slip in to the glass clear water. Navigate around the coral, and be rewarded for your perseverance with giant schools of blue tangs dancing in the currents. Drift aimlessly, discovering something new at every turn. Plentiful and close in, the sh and coral here delight, this is paradise. In Bonaire, you need only wade in to discover the colorful reefs. Encircled by a national park to a depth of 200 foot, this island is made for snorkeling. Putt across the bay to Little Klein Bonaire, and be rewarded with mesmerizing reefs, just steps from shore. Pack a picnic, and plan to spend a whole day. Walk the whole island in four hours but be sure to pack plenty of water, as there are no stores. Ideal for drift snorkeling, simply paddle out past the reef and let the current draw you along the islands edge. Relaxing and extensive, the reefs will amaze you. Volcanic Dominicas beaches are covered with softball size rocks. While not great for walking or sunbathing, the exceptional for crystal blue water is great for snorkeling. Accessible from shore, dont miss Champagne Reef. Here tiny bubbles of volcanic sulphur gas dance continuously skyward in the caressing tropical waters. Curious blue damsels dart by, as the waves slowly roll toward shore. Grand Caymans most popular activity is not snorkeling. Instead, for a once in a lifetime experience try swimming with the stingrays. Paying attention to instruction counts here. Hold the squid carefully to avoid the stingrays teeth. Feel the suction as the gentle rays slurp squid from your hand. With up to a four-foot wingspan these rays can be enormous. Combine Sting Ray City with a snorkel trip for a perfect afternoon. With visibility of up to 150 feet, Grand Cayman has near perfect conditions. Graced by several cays Belize is a top snorkel destination. The best, Laughing Bird Cay, is a 40-minute cruise from the town of Placenia. Named after the bird once nested here, it has been protected since 1981. Discover a tropical paradise, swaying palms, gentle breezes, and easy beach access. Sorry, you cant stay, as this National Park has no facilities. Spend your time paddling slowly passed sea life, and think you may have found paradise.Linda Carter is the owner of Luxury Cruise & Travel Inc. in Crawfordville.
