Staff reportA 39-year-old jail inmate was found dead in his cell at 11:20 p.m. on Saturday, June 7, according to Sheriff Charlie Creel. Jerry Jackie Kitchens of Seminary, Miss., was found hanged in his cell by a detention deputy making routine rounds to check on inmates. Emergency care was immediately administered to Kitchens but was unsuccessful. Wakulla EMS and Wakulla Jail nursing staff also responded to the scene. FDLE was called to the scene and is conducting an investigation. Autopsy ndings conducted through a Monday, June 9 examination was consistent in the cause of death. Kitchens was arrested April 12 during a traf c stop where a vehicle full of property stolen from Mississippi was discovered. He faced a variety of charges in Wakulla County including possession of a rearm by a convicted felon, possession of stolen property, possession of narcotics and driving while license suspended or revoked with knowledge. Kitchens was wanted in Mississippi for absconding to Florida prior to reporting to prison in that state. newsThe Wakulla Wakulla FCAT Results Reading: 69% pro ciency, 7th in state Math: 70% pro ciency, 8th in state Reading: 58% pro ciency, 10th in state Reading: 65% pro ciency, 10th in state Math: 57% pro ciency, 10th in state Reading: 66% pro ciency, 5th in state Math: 64% pro ciency, 10th in state Reading: 68% pro ciency, 5th in state Math: 58% pro ciency, 12th in state Science: 59% pro ciency, 8th in state Reading: 65% pro ciency, 7th in state Reading: 63% pro ciency, 7th in state Math: 63% pro ciency, 6th in state Science: 59% pro ciency, 5th in state Reading: 65% pro ciency, 6th in state Math: 57% pro ciency, 15th in state4th grade 9th 6th grade 7th grade 5th grade 10th 8th grade 3rd gradePublic Notices .................................................................Page 3A The Opinion Page ...........................................................Page 4A Street Beat ......................................................................Page 5A Church.............................................................................Page 6A Obituaries .......................................................................Page 7A Community .................................................................Pages 8-9A School......... ............................................................Pages 10-11A Sports ...........................................................................Page 12A Outdoors ......................................................................Page 13A Water Ways ...................................................................Page 14A Sheriffs Report .............................................................Page 15A Natural Wakulla ............................................................Page 16A Wakulla News Extra! ........................................................Page 1B Week in Wakulla .............................................................Page 3B Weekly Roundup ..............................................................Page 4B Green Scene ....................................................................Page 2B Thinking Outside the Book ..............................................Page 5B Classi eds ........................................................................Page 6B Legal Notices ...................................................................Page 6B Comics .............................................................................Page 9B Readers Choice Ballot ....................................................Page 10BINDEX OBITUARIES Jack Hogan Velma S.

Rankings are based on the percent of students who score proficient, which is on grade level at a Level 3, or above grade level at Levels 4 and 5. While Wakulla FCAT Reading scores have steadily stayed above the state average, of note are FCAT Math scores which continue to climb. Overall, 4th grade Math scores were at 70% on or above grade level compared to the state average of 63%. Eighth grade Math scores were 63% on or above grade level compared to the state average of 47%. Another big leap were 10th grade Reading scores at 65% on or above grade level compared to the state average of 55%. Wakulla students ranked first in the region consisting of Wakulla, Leon, Calhoun, Liberty, Taylor, Jefferson, Franklin, Gadsden, and Madison on six of the areas tested and were in the top three for 15 of 16 areas tested. States Superintendent Bobby Pearce, Wakulla students, teachers, staff, administrators and parents are to be commended for their hard work. We are very pleased with these results and go forward into 2014-2015 with renewed enthusiasm to continue to educate our children at the highest level. The 2013-2014 school year FCAT Reading, Math, and Science scores are listed in the table at left. Still to come are disaggregated scores on the state End of Course Exams (EOCs) in Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology, and United States History. Individual student scores have been mailed home or are available at the childs school, plus they can be viewed on the parent portal where parents are able to view their childs grades. Wakulla County School District also has been named an Academically High Performing District by the state for the seventh consecutive year based on last years district FCAT point total, good financial audit, and adherence to the class size requirements.Code enforcement complaints, many anonymous, are upJerry Jackie Kitchens Mississippi man was being held on drugs, weapons charges By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net Numerous anonymous complaints, formal and informal, have been filed increasing numbers at the Wakulla County Building Department. Because complaints can be led anonymously, Wakulla County Building Of cial James Melvin said people are de nitely trying to use code enforcement for personal reasons. He said almost half the cases called in are invalid, and 95 percent anonymous. Its gotten uglier lately, Melvin said. Commissioner Ralph Thomas has submitted an agenda item to propose a change to the policy to end anonymous complaints at the upcoming June 16 Board of County Commissioners meeting. The Building Department has added code enforcement matters to its list of responsibilities, since the Code Enforcement Department was dissolved back in March due to budget issues. There are two types of code enforcement complaints nuisance land use and trash complaints inspected by the Planning and Zoning Department, and building code violations addressed by the county building inspectors. A case is generated when we take a call, Melvin said. The inspector goes out there. Its either a valid or non-valid complaint. To validate complaints, there is a big workload involved. And with code enforcement, either youre not hammering someone for a complaint, or if its a valid complaint, you are dropping the hammer on somebody. Somebody on every call is not going to be happy with the outcome. Melvin said investigating a complaint often requires multiple trips, certified letters and time which ultimately hurts the taxpayers. Thomas said anonymous complaints are a way the system can be abused. If someone has a problem with their neighbor, its easy to turn on them and allow (the county) to pursue it, Thomas said. Then it becomes a waste of our time and resources. My thinking is if we have building official doing a job outside of his normal role, we are taking away from that job. Half of his time is inspecting claims that frivolous and wasting tax payer money. Melvin said examples of recent, unenforceable complaints include the giant mastodon and pelican in front of Hugh Taylors house, who is a politically-active citizen living on Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Road. Formal complaints stated the gures in the front yard are windblown debris hazards that could cause damage in a storm situation. But, Melvin said, so can a picket fence, shingles on a roof, or playground equipment. Ive had numerous phone calls to do something about the elephant out front, Melvin said. People say were not touching him because its political. Some people dont like the aesthetics of the elephant, but its not different than a concrete deer or gazebo. We are a rural county. If I went after him on (windblown debris), then I would have to go after other things too using the same rationale. We are apolitical, Melvin said. We have to be. Other complaints are just that complaints. Melvin said Jack Rudloes name has come up recently, though no formal complaint was filed. The anonymous caller complained that the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, which Rudloe has operated in Panacea before the county had zoning, is using two residential lots for a non-residential property. Someone in Panacea has a bee in their bonnet, Melvin said. Thats a nice way of putting it.Turn to Page 2AWakulla County Fire Rescue responded to a double wide mobile home re on Friday, June 6.

Page 2A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comWakulla Bank case set for trial in JanuaryBy WILLIAM SNOWDENeditor@thewakullanews.netThe lawsuit led by FDIC against the former of cers and directors of Wakulla Bank is set to go to trial of Jan. 26, 2015, in federal court in Tallahassee. The FDIC filed the lawsuit in July 2013 against the ve men former president Walter Dodson, vice president Scott Gaby, of cer William Versiga, and directors Gerald Bryant and Walter Roberts seeking damages that it claims were suffered as a result of negligence, gross negligence and breeches of their duciary duty. Wakulla Bank closed on Oct. 1, 2010 and went into receivership by the FDIC and the banks assets were later purchased by Centennial Bank. FDIC indicated in the lawsuit that the damages being sought are not an effort to collect on outstanding loans made by the bank. In an answer filed in March by Atlanta attorney Bard Brockman, who represents the banks former of cers, the argument is made that FDICs claims are barred because they seek to impose personal liability upon defendants for alleged damages resulting from intervening causes and/or events that were not within defendants control and were historic, global, unforeseeable, and unforeseen by countless reasonable persons and professionals, including the FDIC, the Florida Of ce of Financial Regulation, and other government agencies and regulators charged with monitoring and regulating nancial institutions. Such agencies and regulators failed to take preventative steps to avoid the disastrous decline in real estate value nationally, the near-collapse of global credit markets, and the epidemic failures of nancial institutions they were responsible for regulating, the defendants answer states. They also argue that the conduct challenged by plaintiff constitutes the reasonable exercise of business judgment by defendants. Later, adding that the of cers reasonably and in good faith relied upon information, reports, opinions and statements provided by persons, government agencies and regulatory authorities, including the FDIC and the Florida Office of Financial Regulation, with professional and/ or expert competence. Another defense put forth is that the injuries alleged in the complaint were not caused by defendants but rather by the intervening and superseding conduct of the Florida Of ce of Financial Regulation in closing Wakulla Bank and plaintiffs post-closure failure to properly administer the affairs of the bank in receivership by, among other things, failing to pursue recovery of the maximum value in connection with the assets of Wakulla Bank. The lawsuit paints a picture of bank management that was increasingly turning to higherrisk commercial real estate loans, but claims that bank officers did not properly vet those seeking loans, or keep close tabs on development projects. Beginning in 2002, according to the lawsuit, Wakulla Bank pursued an aggressive growth strategy focused on high-risk (commercial real estate) loans. The FDIC claims that the banks loan portfolio had become over-concentrated in commercial real estate. Defendants had a duty to engage in safeand-sound lending practices, the complaint states. Rather than act prudently, defendants took unreasonable financial risks, violated internal policies and procedures when approving loan transactions, knowingly permitted poor underwriting in contradiction of internal policies and reasonable industry standards, and ignored repeated warnings about the risks associated with a high concentration in commercial real estate loans... As a result of the commercial loans, adversely classi ed assets increased sharply from $1.6 million in 2006 to nearly $12 million in 2007 and more than $75 million by the end of 2009, according to the lawsuit. Regulators reportedly warned Wakulla Banks officers about imprudent lending practices, the lawsuit claims. In July 2005, for example, officers were advised that analyses of borrowers nancial condition and payment history was lacking. Three years later, in March 2008, defendants still had not corrected the de ciencies. In 2005 and again in 2009, regulators also criticized the quality of appraisal reviews, including the failure to review existing appraisals prior to loan reviews. The lawsuit cites nine cases in which loans were negligently issued or negligently administered by the banks of cers. The cases include the well-publicized fiasco of the Wildwood Golf Course, in which Wakulla Bank had loaned some $6 million that was secured by the golf course, restaurant and hotel. The purchase of the golf course in 2003 was by a high-pro le group that included businessman Joe Barry and thenSheriff David Harvey. The lawsuit does not name borrowers, but refers to their initials, and notes JB as one of the principal partners in the golf course deal. A Wakulla Bank employee analyzed the initial $1.6 million loan in 2003 to buy Wildwood and called it a weak loan for the bank, citing unfavorable trends in sales and pro ts, inadequate cash ow and unrealistic company projections. The bank went ahead with loan. In 2004, the bank added another $3.2 million and $473,000 in loans; and in 2005, another $800,00 and $259,000 in loans were added; and then the notes consolidated into one loan in 2006. The Wildwood partners defaulted in 2008. The FDIC is seeking $2.39 million in damages on that transaction. Other transactions included One New Orleans Place LLC, a 2005 loan of $4.23 million for of ce and condominums that was charged an interest-only loan. It defeated in August 2008. In September 2009, the remaining guarantors told Dodson, Gaby and Versiga that they were over-leveraged and couldnt pay. FDIC is seeking damages of $1.9 million in that case. FDIC is asking for $2.36 million in damages for a transaction to Booth Higgins Booth Trust LLC from 2005 for a commercial real estate loan. The lawsuit claims that by the time the bank did a proper appraisal of the property that secured the loan in 2007, the value of the property had decreased to $720,000. The borrowers defaulted in 2008. In their answer to claims by FDIC, the ofcers overall deny they acted imprudently.From Front PageAnonymous complaints have a helpful purpose too, Melvin said. A citizen who feels somehow threatened by a neighbor might hesitate to report violations for fear of retaliation. Its just not a perfect world, Melvin said. Thomas said in a case where a citizen might fear retaliation, they should call their district commissioner, who cannot le a complaint themselves, but can alert the county administrator. If its a legitimate complaint, thats not a bad thing, Thomas said. Thomas said there is not an ordinance or written policy that states complaints can be anonymous. Many complaints are submitted through the website, and dont require a name.Staff reportFire ghters fought a fully involved blaze at a stilt home on Wilderness Way near the airport on Sunday, May 25. Fire Rescue responded to reports of a house on fire near the Wakulla County Airport. The house was located in a subdivision that contains just the one home. No one was home and the re had already spread into the attic and interior of the home in addition to the woods surrounding the home. At one time a spotover occurred in the woods across the street from the house. Firefighters spent nearly three hours extinguishing the re completely. Then Station 7 members checked the house every two hours throughout the night. On one occasion they had to extinguish some hot spots. It was extremely hot and EMS had to conduct REHAB operations for the re ghters throughout the operation.By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews. net Complications during construction on Surf Road and Bostic Pelt Road in Crawfordville have caused delays that will continue to affect traf c. The projects are funded by a grant through USDAs Natural Resources Conservation Services. The grant is intended to help harden and protect major drainage structures from erosion. Bostic Pelt was completely cut in half by Tropical Storm Debby, Public Works Manager Cleve Fleming said. Alan Wise, of PrebleRish Engineering, said water owed over and under the bridge, and took the road with it. These projects were designed to stop that from happening in the future, Wise said. We bid the projects out, we went to construction, and during construction there were dif culties. We are now working through it, nding the appropriate solution to finish the projects. Its important for us to let the public know that were still in the middle of it. Well be moving forward as soon as we can to get the roads back open to a safe, passable condition. Surf Road is open to local traf c. Its an area that still requires caution from drivers, Wise said. There are a couple sections in there that arent paved. The road narrows, but it is passable. Bostic Pelt road is in a similar situation, but Fleming said it is closed to traf c. Once the project is completed, however, Bostic Pelt will be completely paved and resurfaced, in addition to the new drainage structures. Bidding for the paving project is open. In the meantime, detour signs lead traf c around Bostic Pelt. Its an inconvenience, Fleming said. But its not like Surf Road when it was closed, because you had to go all the way around it. County Administrator David Edwards added that the Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail will be reopened in the future as well. He expressed apologies to the public for the inconvenience. Were doing everything that we can to get the issues resolved and the projects completed, Edwards said. Its turned into a bigger mess than we thought it would. Edwards said because of litigation, the details of the problems could not be disclosed at this time. However, a resolution will be presented at a future Board of County Commissioners meeting. Fleming pointed out that the county gets anywhere between two to four similar projects annually. In the history of doing these projects, this is the rst time weve run into this type of difculty, Fleming said. A lot of this is outside the countys control. Weve had a very good success rate with Preble-Rish, and projects getting completed on time with minor inconvenience to the public. A generous timeline for completion of the projects is estimated to be in autumn.Delays with Surf, Bostic Pelt road projects Rash of code enforcement complaintsFirefighters battle house fire Susan Jones, GRIRealtor 566-7584 NEW HOME $159,900 194 Carousel Charming, Cozy & Immaculate 3BR/2.5BA. 1,678 sq.ft w/ oversized 1 car garage.

By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews. net Gov. Rick Scott signed off on funding for the county to enter into a contract with Fish and Wildlife to build a public access boat launch facility at Shell Point ($735,000), and a municipal dock at St. Marks through the Department of Economic Opportunity ($1,051,660). County Administrator David Edwards and Sheree Keeler, director of governmental affairs, were pleased that the much-needed projects were green lighted. Two projects were vetoed dredging of channels and canals at Shell Point, Spring Creek and Mashes Sands through the Department of Transportation, and county-wide paddling trails with kayak and canoe launch projects. We are ecstatic, Keeler said in a phone interview. I feel like its over, I can rest now. Its big for the county, and were really happy. The governors budget will become effective July 1. In other matters at the county commission meeting on June 2: Local developer Ben Boynton requested an amendment to change the density plan of The Flowers subdivision 468 acres he owns off Bloxham Cutoff. The results of a pervious nitrate analysis said 45 percent of the property must be an undeveloped natural area. Boynton wants to change that density to 20 percent natural area outside the lots. Luis Serna of the Planning and Zoning Department said the countys comprehensive plan, which addresses future of development in the county, places restrictions on the property. Some of those restrictions are for environmental protection. Part of the concern is that its in the Wakulla Springs basin, Serna said. So when they applied to increase the development density on the property, they agreed to certain conditions. One of them was that 45 percent of the site should be set aside as a natural state area. If (he) wants to change it to 20 percent, just give us an updated study; something to justify it with. Citizen Laurie Westbrook said she lives adjacent to the development. She said Boynton seems to change his mind on a continuous basis and bring forth different requests. If theres a comp plan, youve got to stick to the comp plan, Westbrook said. Planning and Zoning did not approve this request, and were asking that you please deny it. Citizen Michael Corrigan also asked the board to deny the amendment. Corrigan mentioned Boyntons donation of 40 acres to the Historical Society for Heritage Village. But if you recall, that was a major public interest component to the project, Corrigan said. Mr. Boynton is not offering anything up in the public interest for getting this. Its going to allow the property size to be larger, which is more marketable, to put more money into his pocket. I hope the board does not feel in any way beholden to Mr. Boynton on that donation. There were strings attached to that donation to get green space inside his lots. Id really like to see you guys stand behind your comp plan. If were going to start making changes, there needs to be a good reason in the public interest to do this. Boynton said, The request is designed to take property that has been limited to natural state, and create an ability for me to get foundation dirt of the houses that Im building in the subdivision. It is not designed to increase densities. Its designed to mimic the Scenic Stream subdivision. Phase 1 of The Flowers has already been platted on a nal plat; and were not changing anything on the final plat. Serna said the amendment to the plan will probably be brought back as an agenda item in the future according to what the updated nitrate study says. The Marine Advisory Committee voted for staff to seek a letter of support for the Aquatic Science Association for a grant proposal at its May 12 public meeting. The item was set for a workshop by commissioners, but not before citizen comments were heard. Citizen Hugh Taylor said he has several concerns, and said the request reminded him of the grant-dependant Maritime Museum, which has not been nished because of restrictive grant funding that has since been unavailable. Beau Webster, a private investigator out of Leon County, said he was hired by an outside source to investigate the ASA. These are independent people who hired me, and have no connection to Wakulla County whatsoever, Webster said. Webster then referred to a March 26 candidate announcement in The Wakulla News that he characterized as not completely correct and accurate. Webster was referring to a story about District 4 Commission candidate Steve Cushman, though Webster did not say his name at the meeting. Commissioner Jerry Moore told Webster, If youre going to be talking about an issue, we need to know who hired you. If you or your organization has a problem with somebody, and you put it out here on TV and in the news, then we need to know who hired you. Its open record. Webster refused to disclose who hired him to investigate the ASA. The item is set for a workshop on July 14 at 5 p.m. Jo Ann Palmer, director of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, presented an ordinance proposal that would increase minimum littering nes from $50 to $100, and require community service for offenders whose litter is more than 15 pounds, and additional penalties for those dumping larger amounts of trash. While there is illegal dumping in our county, we are focusing on roadside litter that requires so much of our attention, Palmer said. The litter control unit, made up of Sheriffs Ofce trustees, picked up 136,450 pounds of roadside litter in 2013. So far this year, the unit has collected 35,625 pounds.

When the airport plan was discussed over two years ago at a community meeting, I suggested that we nd out what the absolute minimums were for our County Airport regarding regulatory compliance. You see, back then the existing design for future airport improvements included all of the amenities possible, we had no data or information on what the absolute minimums were to maintain compliance. The group was trying to reach a compromise without knowing the complete spectrum of possibilities. The original plan had supporters of airport infrastructure that allowed for much needed revenue generation for the county. Some wanted the very minimum safety and facility improvements. Some even wanted no improvements whatsoever, including zero safety improvements. In the spirit of cooperation and in good faith, I agreed that before a fair and balanced middle ground could be established, we needed to know the absolute minimums. I most certainly never agreed to accept the absolute minimums for our county airport as Parham asserts. Additionally, I stressed throughout the meeting that I would never compromise safety and will continue to advocate for maximum safety. As the legendary Paul Harvey would say: Now you know the rest of the story. Steve Fults Ochlockonee BayEditor, The News: You know what? It was actually fun! We were told at our first meeting by the county attorney that we would never get done in time to put proposals on this years ballot, which, in hindsight, was probably not the thing to say to this diverse group of strong-minded citizens. I would like to commend the entire 15 person commission for all the reasoned input that was contributed to produce our body of work and especially our Chairman Chris Russell. There were many contentious issues discussed but Chris was always about keeping us on the subject helping us boil down our differences, getting us to a vote, rarely taking a side until we all voted. There was not a single issue raised by a citizen that did not get fully discussed. There were very few issues that confront our county that were not discussed, and I am sure some of those discussions ruf ed more than a few feathers. But you know what? That was what we were charged to do take ideas brought forth by citizens, discuss them, and if enough interest was generated, vote to move the item to the ballot for you, the citizens, to make the nal decision relative to each proposal. The State of Florida established Charter Counties to increase home rule for counties that wanted to have more say in their local government and this commission afforded the citizens an opportunity to bring their ideas to the table. Most of the time when we go to the polls we participate in our representative form of government, as envisioned by the founders of our republic, and vote for people to ll the various positions. But with a charter we get to sprinkle a little democracy into the recipe. When was the last time you can recall having the opportunity to vote on non-partisan elections or whether you want your commissioners to be elected just by your district or the whole county? Is it important to have residency requirements for our officials? Are special elections with their low turnout necessary or is every two years during the regular cycle enough? How do you feel about enshrining the current fund balance policy in our charter and adding a debt policy to it to help avoid the nancial mess we got in a few years ago? God willing, you will get to vote on all these issues and possibly more this fall. And to think that some have said we are trying to take peoples right to vote away and stated we were politically motivated! You will now have the opportunity to vote on key issues, without having to generate thousands of petitions to have a say on these very issues. Vote yes or no on these proposals, it truly is your chance to vote on your government. Like it or not, everyone has some degree of political motivation. But guess what our rst vote was? to ask the voters to consider switching all of our locally elected of ces to non-partisan as a means to reduce partisan politics here in Wakulla County. This commission is made up of individuals from both major parties, but this issue passed unanimously with every voting member supporting this concept. The Charter Review Commission will be holding two public hearings on June 12 and June 23, at 6 p.m. at the Commission Chambers to gather more citizen input on YOUR Charter. Please come and help make the process better! John Shuff CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Last week we paid tribute to the debt we owe those who fought and those who died on D-Day, June 6, 1944, to liberate France from Nazi control and protect Americans at home. We displayed Old Glory at our house along with some gritty sand collected at Omaha Beach and talked about our good fortune for having D-Day protectors who preserved our freedom, especially our right to speak our minds and criticize our government. But, our freedom can be bittersweet, as it was last weekend when I read The Wakulla News letters to the editor criticizing our countys law protecting the wetlands, and condemning the people who gathered petitions that allow a countywide vote on Nov. 4, to continue or not continue that law. (The letters, Group unfairly vilifies four commissioners, Dont lock wetlands into 5-0 board vote, and Wetlands ordinance will increase taxes, Opinion Page, June 5.) The letters were chockful of bad information geared to get people riled up against wetland protection. Mind you, those letter writers have every right to their opinion, but shouldnt they feel an obligation to correctly state the facts? I proudly volunteered to get petitions signed after four county commissioners refused to put the issue on the ballot. One letter writer criticizing the need for the petition drive left out the fact that commissioners at-out refused to put wetlands on the ballot and looked for ways to block the petitions. That letter also condemned volunteers for getting signatures at U.S. Post Of ces, businesses and the Senior Citizens Center. One call to the post office would show that petitioners followed post office rules, business owners gave permission to gather petitions on their property, and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service allows petitions on ballot issues to be signed at 501(c)3 places like the Senior Citizens Center. After all, seniors signed petitions for a county commission candidate at the center. Another writer said protecting wetlands would increase property taxes. Just the opposite is true, and a call to the Wakulla County property appraisers of ce, as I made, would settle that. Wetlands are assessed at lower market values, so property taxes on wetlands are lower. And, if wetlands are protected, theyll generate more eco-tourism, which will bring in much-needed revenue to our county. As for a writers opinion that voting to protect the wetlands would create costly lawsuits against the county, and raise taxes, the writer left out the obvious: The wetlands issue on the ballot keeps the current law in place. Your taxes havent been increased by the wetlands law we have now and they wont be affected if voters approve the wetlands issue on the ballot in November. This June 16, well see if four commissioners really want to protect our county. Instead of irresponsibly taking away our wetlands protection (as they plan to do), they could wait until they see how people vote on Nov. 4. That wait would nix a reason for lawsuits; their haste could create them. Check that with a litigator. The volunteers who gathered petitions this winter in the cold, soggy weather were part of something greater than one county petition drive; they were exercising the freedom our DDay ghters fought and died for. Today I wonder why anyone would criticize a drive that allows citizens to vote. Dana Peck Ochlockonee BayEditor, The News: The Sopchoppy Fourth of July Volunteer Committee sincerely appreciates the generous supporters who came out to the fundraiser for the Fourth of July Celebration on Saturday, May 31. The event was quite successful and a whole lot of fun. It is amazing the people willingly gave their time and efforts and we thank all of the volunteers who helped the committee with the fundraiser. Many thanks to all the musicians including Hot Tamale, Master Chief Ralph Pelletier, Rick Ott, Dillon McCall, Aaron Sheppard, Mershell Sherman, Dean Newman, Susan David, Paving Blue band and Stone Cold Blues Band who entertained us inside at From The Heart Recording Studio. Our gratitude also goes to Judy Bunch Catering and several mullet shermen who helped Leonard Tartt with the mullet sh fry. And thank you to John and Patsy Dunning and their volunteers who grilled and served the hamburgers and hotdogs for the fundraiser. Everyone enjoyed the event and are grateful for all the contributions for the Fourth of July fund. We look forward to another fantastic celebration this Fourth of July in Sopchoppy. For information visit us on Facebook @ Sopchoppy 4th of July and www.sopchoppy.org. Sincerely, Sopchoppy Fourth of July Volunteer CommitteeEditor, The News: Commissioner Jerry Moore announces a veterinary practice called Moore Quick Service and almost no-charge Vet Clinic. My reasoning for opening this clinic is because so many people confuse me with Dr. Norm Griggs of Shepherd Springs Vet Clinic that I decided I could offer vet service as most people cannot tell the difference in our appearance. I do not have a vet license or an of ce, I will have a non-traceable phone number and the of ce location will be in various service station parking lots. I will only diagnose two major ailments of dogs and cats. One condition is a condition labeled on vet charts as ADT which stands for Aint Doing Right. The second problem is CS which stands for Child Substitute. Both of the above can be treated quickly long the side of the road or in a parking lot therefore reducing fees. I will be traveling around the county and should you need service just tie your pet to a tree or a mailbox and I will leave the services fee attached to the animal. Yours truly, Commissioner Jerry Moore Panacea P.S. Do not say anything to Dr. Griggs. Editor, The News:Just nished reading your front page diatribe labeled Questions raised about insurance contract. It is a thinly veiled muckraking news article whose editorial bias easily shines through. How dare you insult the reading public of this ne county with a story whose basis is an unconrmed and unattributed source. How dare you impugn the reputation of any citizen of this county using an uncorroborated and unnamed source as your justification! And basing your borderline libel not on a printed and signed document, but on a generic piece of digital hardware. If I may quote a stellar editorialist from the old UPI (and his name is John Leo, as he would insist that references to him be substantiated): Personally, I dont need reporters to supply righteous indignation. I can handle that on my own. What I need is reporters who separate rumor from fact and just tell me what they know for sure actually happened. John Fort Crawfordville Editors Note: The delivery of the thumbdrive with its questions about the contributions prompted the story, but everything reported was verified. There was no reliance on an unnamed source.

In 1999, the county closed Cherokee Sink to public swimming due to the fact that there were no ush toilets on site. The area around Cherokee Sink will have a restroom facility with ush toilets, parking for 30 vehicles, pavilion, picnic area, and a boardwalk around the sink (to prevent further erosion). Adding restrooms with ush toilets will allow the opening of Cherokee Sink to the public for swimming.

He did not have much to say except when he was talking about his hunting or fishing adventures, and to hear from him it was always an adventure. When he got started on one of his stories, you better just sit back and forget about everything else. Outside of that, he was rather quiet and reserved and did not have much to say. I always liked that about him for a variety of reasons. I think I take after him in that regard. I just do not have time to hear somebody bloviate on something I am not interested in. For one, my father had no time at all for politics. I am not sure if he was a Republican or Democrat, but I knew he voted every election. Son, he often said, you dont have to take sides one way or the other. When Im with a Democrat, I talk Democrat and when Im with a Republican, I talk Republican. The only thing that matters is what I do when I get in that voting booth. This attitude of his, since Fathers Day is coming up, was something that made a deep impression upon me. Following his counsel has kept me out of quite a few battles throughout the years, especially when I got married. I can never remember my father arguing with my mother. Now, my mother argued with my father, but he never reciprocated. If you want a happy home, he once advised, make sure everybody in the home is happy particularly the one you married. Another bit of advice he gave me was simply that you do not have to ght every battle. Only ght those battles, he said with a sly smirk on his face, that you know you can win. I mentioned that he was rather reserved in his speaking, but there was one area where he was profusely proactive. That was in the area of discipline, especially directed toward me. My father was not much different from any of the fathers during that time and they all believed in the biblical admonition, Spare the rod and spoil the child. These fathers were united in making sure none of their children would be spoiled. One rule we had in the house that I did not fully agree with was, if you got a spanking in school (and in those days we got spankings in school) you got a spanking at home. Talk about double dipping! I spent 12 years in the public education system and during that time, my teacher was never wrong. I clearly remember that my teachers back then had what was called the Hickory stick. And, boy, did those teachers know how to use that Hickory stick and where it would do the most good. My father did not have a Hickory stick as such. Hanging on the wall in the kitchen was an old wooden paddle engraved with, I need thee every hour. I made one mistake during those childhood days. I was going through a period where the paddle and my bottom were close friends. I was getting a little weary of such friendship and decided I would do something about it. My father had gone to work early that day, as I remember it now, and I was going out the door to go to school when a thought danced in my head. I would take that paddle and dispose of it so that it could no longer be attached to my person. With the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, it was not a perfect plan. Two days later, I got into some trouble. It was the kind of trouble that could be resolved only by that wooden paddle. My father went to get the paddle and to his chagrin, and my posterior harm, it was not there. Very seldom did my father paddle me when he was really angry. There was one case when that happened, and this was it. I will not repeat the lecture that he gave at that time, but I will say that it had a lasting impression upon my posterior. At that time, I wished he had been a man of fewer words. I know times have changed, but I am not sure they have changed for the better. There was a time when parents were in charge of children and responsible for the discipline. Sadly, that day is far gone. The only thing I would say is, are we better off today than we were back then? The Bible admonishes us, And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Discipline, not abuse, is drastically needed among our children today. My father would put it this way, lack of discipline is a form of abuse.The Rev. James L.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 Page 7AVelma S. Blue Linton, 89, passed away Thursday, June 5, 2014 in Crawfordville. She was born Feb. 27, 1925 in Sneads. She was the seventh of eight children born to Lewis Idus and Mary Etta Spooner. Velma was raised on a farm in Jackson County. She often assisted her father with tasks traditionally believed to be a job for the men. She rode a horse or mule to gather up cows, fed the pigs, and harvested crops on the farm. After graduating from high school she worked in several other states, but eventually returned to Florida, eloped to Georgia to marry her soulmate. A lack of funds forced them to share one hamburger after getting hitched and they returned to her parents home later that evening. Scared to tell her parents they were married, they were forced to spend their honeymoon night in separate bedrooms. They came to Tallahassee and made a life together. Velma made a career as a telephone operator back in the day of switchboards with cords that had to be manually moved from one connection to another. She later retired from the then-Centel Telephone Company.

Blue Linton Hester Estelle Raker Smith Kenneth Karl Springsteen Jack M. Hogan Kenneth Karl Springsteen Velma S. Blue Linton Hester Estelle Raker SmithBy TRACY RENEE LEEI am a member of a very large family and found this on the internet, written by one of my dear cousins. My sweet little Daddys happy birthday! So happy he is with Mother and all those he loves so much who have gone on. Nevertheless, I miss him so much and wish we could have one of our big heart to hearts! He taught me more riding along with him as we went to take care of the cows, hauling hay, going to the sale barn or just riding to town to get a sodie pop! Loved how he loved Memaw (his mother) and how he interacted with her. Loved how he lit up when he was around his siblings. Loved how devoted he was to Heavenly Father and his quiet devotion. He was amazing. I love him so much and still cant bear that hes gone! She continues, Today, I fight back the tears that are so close to my heart as I miss my sweet little Daddy. I loved him so much. My cousins father was a wonderful man and meant so much to so many. Her tears are not a sign of weakness, they testify that the love and time she spent with her father were, and continue to be, a great treasure. Eventually there will come a time when holidays and special events will be easier to manage, but one never forgets their father, nor the love they shared together. Just because a loved one dies, does not mean that love has died too. The heart wrenching pain expressed by my cousin, can sometimes be softened by developing new traditions based on old ones shared with the deceased. The death of a close loved one creates a wonderful opportunity to concentrate on developing those fabulous nuances that have created and molded you into the person you are today. Honor your father by passing on his greatest parenting skill or grandparenting skill. If you have the opportunity, please take this Fathers Day to openly express your love for your dad before it is too late. In my line of work, I have seen young fathers as well as old, slip away without any warning, and at those times, I realize how utterly important it is to express your love and appreciation for all those you love, each and every moment you have with them. Fathers are so important to the welfare and health of the family. They play an important role in their childrens development into healthy functioning adults. As I see families pass through my funeral home, I can immediately recognize families blessed with a strong father, from those who were not. When parents die, realization of our own mortality, and the importance of being a strong and responsible parent comes to the forefront of our minds. We vow to do better and regret our past shortcomings. Gratefully, my father is still living. I tell him constantly that I love him, and how grateful I am to be able to draw upon his knowledge. I dread the day that he will leave this earth. When that happens, I know that I will be terribly sorrowful. I will also know, that I have taken every opportunity to express my love to my dad. That tiny bit of knowledge, I hope, will help me recover. I saw on TV this morning that fathers are taking on more and more responsibility toward rearing families. I believe this is an excellent statistic..Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer. It is my lifes work to comfort the bereaved and help them live on.

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comhappenings in our community CommunityI heard my Mom and Dad talk about a special time coming up called pet appreciation week. I am a lucky dog because my Mom and Dad adopted me, and I know they really love me even though they always say I am spoiled rotten. Seriously, I may roll in smelly stuff at times but I am by no means rotten! Anyway, I thought who better to remind everyone of this special time for pets, than me, Bentlee Boo Official Spokes Dog for CHAT of Wakulla, Inc. So listen up; June 11-15, you owners are supposed to be extra special nice to us, and I will give some pointers: First of all, treats would be appreciated, lots of them if it is up to me! Some of us could probably use a new collar, and it would be a good idea to add an ID tag, wouldnt it? We might get lost and it would be sooo much easier for someone to help get us home if they knew where we live. Did I mention treats? We really dont mind if you show us how much you love us with our favorite treats. I personally dont like this one but, a bath might be nice, and remember to apply something to keep those annoying fleas and ticks off us. You could take your dog for extra walks or maybe even nd a dog park? And your cat will surely love some extra snuggle time, and did you know they like treats, too? They have lots of treats for cats, or you can put catnip on their food or favorite place in the sun. I am not sure what that stuff is but it makes them kind of crazy; I think you know what I mean. Give your kitty some additional exercise and make her chase a laser beam. It makes no sense to me, but it is fun to watch them chase that dot around, so silly. Make sure your dog or cat eats the right food. My Dad recently changed mine because I am not so active anymore, and sleep a lot. What can I say; I am not a spring chicken anymore but still love to chase those squirrels. Oh, a back massage would be really special; I love those! You could also buy a new toy, ball or Frisbee. A little extra exercise would do all of us good. Here's wishing you never forget to appreciate your pets and please, please, please dont forget treats! Oh, something else I wanted to mention, CHAT may not run the adoption center anymore but they are still doing lots of good things for animals in this county. Check out their new website chatofwakulla.org and see whats going on.Tailwagger News...CHAT Of cial Spokes Dog Special to The NewsThe Florida Department of Transportation will host an alternatives public information meeting concerning the Conceptual Design and Environmental Reevaluation Study on U.S. 319 (Crawfordville Highway), from U.S. 98 in Wakulla County to south of the Four Points intersection in Leon County.

Superintendent Robert Pearce, School Board Members Becky Cook and Greg Thomas, along with several principals, and district administrators were in attendance to show their gratitude for a job well done. Each year, the school district honors the Food Service staff with awards to commend those that go above and beyond the norm. The attendance award is presented to the school cafeteria staff with the highest combined rate of attendance throughout the school year. The highly coveted, Golden Spoon Award is presented to the school cafeteria that accumulates the highest number of points for ef cient plate cost, promotional and inservice activities. For the rst time in over ve years, one school succeeded in earning both of these accolades. School Board Member, Becky Cook presented both awards to a very deserving Riversprings Middle School. Mrs. Ingrid Funderburke, Cafeteria Manager, and her staff were elated to have received the honor. Mrs. Cook also praised all of the Food Service employees for their dedication and hard-work in preparing and serving more than 655,000 meals to the children of Wakulla County. She went on to commend both Riversprings and Wakulla Middle School staff for their commitment and a job well done in implementing a breakfast program at both schools for the rst time ever. The Director of Food Service, Gail Mathers, is proud of the accomplishments of all the school cafeterias. This year has been exceptionally challenging due to changes in the federal regulations for school breakfast and lunch. Our staff was not discouraged by the task at hand, and met the challenges with unwavering determination and a lot of hard-work. Their commitment and dedication to the job and the students resonates throughout the district and for that we are extremely appreciative. As the school cafeteria staff looks forward to a well-deserved summer break, the district staff in the Food Service department will be working towards expanding the breakfast program to Wakulla High School with the beginning of next school year in August.

Families lled the stadium stands for the spiritual commencement preceding the War Eagles graduation on Friday, June 6. Seniors in navy blue caps and gowns took the eld to Pomp and Circumstance. Seniors Class Vice President Tamia Potter shared an invocation, praying that minds and hearts be open for a message that would resonate with the students. James Douin, senior class president, welcomed families to the event, followed by a scripture reading by Senior Class Treasurer Cary Mathers. Savanah Hamilton, senior class historian, introduced special speaker Jim Posey, who serves as youth pastor at Crawfordville First Baptist Church. This might not be politically correct, but it is Biblically correct, Posey said, which drew amens from the audience. Posey credited the prayers of parents and grandparents who asked for the seniors to be successful and make it to graduation. Many guardian angels have taken a beating because of your actions, and sent them into retirement, Posey joked. Imagine if Gods watchful hands hadnt been on you up to this point. Posey presented the Two Cs: Changes and Choices. Change explains the past 18 years, Posey said. Choices govern our direction we take in life. Posey said choices, good and bad, de ne students destinies. You can be the change, or you can be changed. Talented class musicians and vocalists took the stage to perform the song Dont Forget to Remember Me. Vocalists were Melissa Gentry and Kyla Kerce. Doran McFalls played bass, Alyssa Schubert played guitar, Brett DeRoss was on drums, and Brianna Marin was the pianist and also sang. Rachel Woofter, senior class secretary, delivered the benediction. This moment marks the end of high school, Woofter said A sigh of relief and a job well done.

DRAWS SO-CALLED GROUP OF DEATH GROUP ONThe 32 qualifying nations in the World Cup are divided into eight groups of four.

A Selecao is riding a 57-competitive-match undefeated streak on Brazilian soil, dating back to 1975. Brazil is a five-time World Cup champion (2002, 1994, , ) but has finished a disappointing sixth and fifth, respectively, in the last two World Cups. The 2013 Confederations Cup champs return Luiz Felipe Scolari, who served as manager of the World Cup winners. Brazil has world-class playmakers at every level led by electric 22-year-old Neymar creative midfielder Oscar and a starstudded defense including captain Thiago Silva, attacking left back Marcelo and setpiece maestro Maicon. Although veteran goalie Julio Csar is not what he once was, his World Cup and international experience (78 caps) is invaluable on this fresh-faced Brazil squad. CONTENDERS IN RIO Brazil is clearly the favorite, with an obvious edge in both on-pitch talent and outside-the-lines support. But ther e are several other teams with a chance to win the final match on July 13 at Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro. The reigning World Cup champions, Spain enters the tournament underrated by its own lofty standards. But do not underestimate La Roja, whose beautiful ball-control offense and miraculous play in goal from Saint Iker Casillas makes them a tough out. Germany has three World Cup crowns (, ) and appears to be in peak form heading to Brazil, with star midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger, Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil, along with elite goaltender Manuel Neuer and ageless wonder striker Miroslav Klose. Argentina is a two-time World Cup champ (, ) and boasts Lionel Messi, who has seemingly played better for club than he has for country. Italys Mario and Luigi duo of Balotelli and Buffon give Azzurri a shot to get hot in Brazil. BRAZIL U-S-A! U-S-A! Coach Jurgen Klinsmanns squad does not include all-time U.S. Men s National Team (USMNT) goal-scorer Landon Donovan who was left off the final roster in a controversial move that will continue to be scrutinized in Brazil. But there is plenty of talent on this World Cup edition of the USMNT. Captain Clint Dempsey will be counted on to produce goals, via deft pass or by putting the ball in the back of the net himself. Forward Jozy Altidore will need to finally live up to his hype in order to stay within reach of a brutally tough Group G. Midfielder Michael Bradley son of Klinsmanns coaching predecessor continues to take strides. If the USMNT is able to advance to the Knockout Stage (Round of 16), it will likely be Bradley who steps up as a valuable defender who also pushes the pace when scoring opportunities present themselves. As usual, the broad shoulders of 6'3" goalie Tim Howard will be counted on to carry the weight of the World Cup for the USMNT. Howard will need to play at a world-class level in net. Howard has the ability to single-handedly keep the Stars and Stripes in the hunt to advance as admittedly longshot underdogs. GROUP OF DEATH? The USA is in the so-called Grupo de la Muerta with Germany, P ortugal and Ghana. Among the favorites to win the World Cup, Germany also brings a built-in rivalry with Klinsmann, who was a former German National Team player and manager. Portugal has the reigning FIFA Ballon dOr winner and worlds highestpaid player in Cristiano Ronaldo. And Ghana has knocked the USMNT out of the past two World Cups in the Round of 16 in and in the group stage in The USMNT has a tough task, but those enormous challenges would make advancing to the Round of 16 even sweeter.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 Page 13ABy MARJ LAWThe other day Joe and I were planning to go to the Wakulla County Sheriffs Office Range in Sopchoppy. We were rained out. I wish I had my old Charter Arms Survival gun, Joe mourned. Whats a survival gun? I wondered. Its a ri e made of a composite material. The neat thing is, it can be used in almost any weather. You can take it boating, hiking or camping. Its lightweight. If you drop it in the water, it even oats! Its reliable and easy to use and its accurate. Survival guns were rst made during the Vietnam War. They were originally used for pilots survival. The guns were not just for protection from the enemy, they were also used as a safeguard against small animals and snakes. Survival guns were actually .22 caliber rifles. The barrel, magazine, and receiver could all be placed into the butt of the gun for easy carrying. You just pull off the cap of the butt, and take out the pieces and t them together. They are versatile and compact; just right if you get stranded out in the wilderness. You were on a submarine, I remarked. Why would you want a survival gun? At the time, it was what I could afford, Joe said. And, not to sound super cial, but James Bond had one. And I could use it no matter what the weather was doing. The first survival guns were made by Armalite in 1958 for U.S. Air Force pilots. Spring eld and Charter Arms companies soon followed. Today, Henry makes them. The design of the gun is pretty much the same today as it was during the Vietnam War. The barrel is made of steel, the receiver is aluminum, the magazines are steel and the stock and butt are made of a water-tight polymer. The receiver is coated with Teflon for rain or saltwater protection. All the pieces together weigh only 3.5 pounds, and when you take the gun apart and place the barrel, receiver and magazines into the butt, the whole thing measures only 16.5 inches. Magazines hold eight rounds. Since we couldnt go shooting, Joe suggested we visit Noshoe Firearms to see if they had a survival gun. Sure enough, they did. I asked Cathy and George if theyd mind if Joe took their gun apart so I could see how it worked. George placed a piece of fabric down on a table, and Joe unscrewed the barrel of the gun and laid it aside. The pistol grip is part of the butt stock. A screw holds the receiver to the pistol grip. You unscrew it, and this releases the receiver so it can be placed into the butt stock, along with that barrel and two magazines. Pretty neat! If I were young, Id want one to go camping. Sigh.

Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced Floridians and visitors will be able to sh without a freshwater recreational fishing license on June 14 and 15. Gov. Scott said, Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World, and shing is an economic engine for our state, providing jobs from Pensacola to the Keys. These designated license-free shing days are a great opportunity for Floridians to celebrate summer with their families and loved ones, enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors, cast a line and get hooked on shing. We hope visitors and residents alike will be able to join in the excitement of Floridas saltwater and freshwater shing this year by participating in one of our license-free shing days, said FWC Chairman Richard Corbett. This is an excellent opportunity to share the fun and togetherness of a shing trip with the entire family or to introduce someone to a lifelong hobby of shing. These four licensefree fishing days fall near National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fishing and boating, which started June 1 and runs through June 8. The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundations www. TakeMeFishing.org website is a place to learn about events sponsored by businesses and communities during National Fishing and Boating Week, as well as locating fishing sites, identifying recreational species and nding shing tips. In conjunction with National Fishing and Boating Week and FWCs license-free event is the rst-ever KeepAmericaFishing Day on June 7. The first Saturday in September (Sept. 6, 2014) and the rst Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 29, 2014) have also been designated license-free saltwater shing days, and the rst Saturday and Sunday in April (April 4-5, 2015) have been designated a licensefree freshwater shing weekend. All bag limits, seasons and size restrictions apply on these dates. To make your shing day successful, check out MyFWC.com/Fishing for shing tips, locations and rules.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWSA Henry survival gun consists of stock, receiver, barrel and magazines and was originally designed for pilots during the Vietnam War.Quota hunt permits available for St. Marks refugeFWC sets freshwater license-free fishing daysSpecial to The News The Apalachicola National Forest is hosting a full moon interpretive hike into Bradwell Bay Wilderness as part of its 2014 commemoration of the Wilderness Act on Friday, June 13, 2014. The Wilderness Act, signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on September 3, 1964, established the National Wilderness Preservation System (NWPS) and set aside an initial 9.1 million acres of wildlands for the use and bene t of the American people. This year marks the 50th anniversary of this historic legislation. To celebrate, Wilderness and Recreation Planner Haven Cook of the National Forests in Florida will be leading the three-mile interpretive walk on the Florida National Scenic Trail, which runs through the wilderness. Everyone should come prepared for a day out in the woods, said Cook. While well be hiking on a at sandy trail, it may be physically demanding for some people. Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear; bring snacks, flashlight or headlamp, plenty of water, insect repellant and rain gear depending on weather conditions. Space is limited to 20 people and registration is required. The group will gather at Hudson Park across from the Sonic DriveIn on Highway 319 in Crawfordville, Fla., at 8:00 p.m., and caravan to the Florida National Scenic Trailhead on Forest Road 329. To register for the event or for more information, contact Recreation Program Manager Chandra Roberts at (850) 926-3561, ext. 6509 or by email, chandraroberts@fs.fed.us.

Opening the season early and on a weekend will create additional recreational opportunities for Florida residents and visitors while recognizing the importance of economic bene ts to coastal communities where this activity occurs. Gov. Rick Scott said, I requested the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission open the season early this year to bene t our communities who rely on our sheries. The bay scallop shery is especially important to Floridas Big Bend region and by opening the bay scallop season three days earlier, Floridians throughout this area will have more opportunities to enjoy our natural treasures and provide for their families. The season, which usually opens July 1, will open Saturday, June 28. The FWC will also bring a proposal to its Commissioners at a future meeting to change future season openings to the Saturday before July 1, unless July 1 happens to be a Saturday. The recreational season will open in Gulf of Mexico state waters (shore to 9 nautical miles) from the Pasco-Hernando county line to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County. The season will remain open through Sept. 24, with the rst day of the closure on Sept. 25. All other regulations, including bag and vessel limits, apply.

Page 14A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 www.thewakullanews.com This past Saturday Flotilla 12 held its monthly meeting in Crawfordville. Duane Treadon sent in the following report: During the meeting members were reminded of the up coming Division Summer conference to be held in Panama City on June 21st. This will be a special meeting of importance as the Division celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Auxiliary. Special presentations and guests will be present during this meeting. Members were also informed by member Terry Hoxworth of a special amateur radio event being held the weekend of the June 28 in Tallahassees Tom Brown Park. Here members and the general public are invited to come learn about the ham radio hobby through demonstrations and direct contact with ham radio operators. Ham radio operators across the country and the world often play a critical role in providing emergency communication during times of natural or human made disasters. Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon related a story of how ham radio operators were the rst to provide communication services for response efforts immediately after Hurricane Katrina. Thank you, Duane, for your report. As the weather continues to feel more and more like summer, many are spending extra time outside. It is a good time to remind readers of the importance of protecting your skin from the sun. Even on overcast days, the harmful rays of the sun can lead to sunburn. When out on the water, the effects of the sun are intensied as the sunlight is re ected off the water. When choosing how to best protect yourself, it is important to consider what is best for you. A large brim hat can offer protection for your face and neck, covering up with protective clothing is also an option. There are many companies that offer lightweight options. Sunscreen is another option. When choosing a sunscreen, there are many SPF levels to choose from. SPF, or sun protection factor, is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays, the kind of radiation that causes sunburn, damages skin, and can contribute to skin cancer. If your skin would normally burn after 10 minutes in the sun, applying an SPF 15 sunscreen would allow you to stay in the sun without burning for approximately 150 minutes (a factor of 15 times longer). Sunscreen should be reapplied at least every two hours for the best protection, more frequently if you are in the water. For more information on choosing the right SPF for you, check out http:// www.onemedical.com or www.webmd.com. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux. net then contact our Flotilla Staff Officer for Human Resources, Raye Crews, at Rayec@uscgaux.net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at Duanet@uscgaux.net.

A Japanese description of a reef included digging a hole, the absence of structure, or dumping piles of rock, the presence of natural materials, which provided many of the attributes listed above. Arti cial is a descriptor to suggest the structure was placed there by humans, not a natural feature such as a coral growth or limestone outcropping. Arti cial reefs both attract and promote increased biomass, permitting denser populations of more biomass of human desired sh and shell sh, and making humans more ef cient at collecting them. To mitigate for this challenge, humans have placed regulations on the taking of animals from our waters. Overall, while not a perfect solution, one that seems to work. Until recently, all arti cial reefs were common property, shed by humans (with shing permits) equally. Our involvement with artificial reefs off our coastal counties has been primarily in two areas: unintentional and intentional. During World War II, the British tanker Empire Micca was torpedoed off Franklin County and exploded creating a ery display before sinking in 100 feet of water. Today, the wreck is a popular unintentional arti cial reef, slowly dissolving away. In 1964 Dr. Mathews (then a graduate student) built a reef out of car tires and intentionally deployed it off the Ochlocknee Shoals in 18 feet of water. After a survey in 1983 by students in my Applications of Diving to Research, that successful reef was expanded with a $64,000 grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection to now build a reef site 2,000 feet long by 300 feet wide. I have already described that very successful, all-volunteer project in a previous column. For 30 years the Organization for Arti cial Reefs has continued to deploy and monitor using a sophisticated in-house research diving team arti cial reefs along our Big Bend area. They deploy concrete, surplused vessels and all manner of targeted species modules on carefully permitted sites. Just as our early efforts, this volunteer organization has brought tremendous reward to our county, providing and maintaining new reefs, reef information, shing contests and educational programs for a who but ask. We sell their maps describing available reef locations and sh found in our waters. Go ahead and search for them on the Internet! What is a sh (or crab) trap, but a target-species arti cial reef with a door on it that is privately owned. Many species associate with the trap (temporary arti cial reef) and may even get caught within and unintentionally harvested. Deployment of traps, however, is not permitted like other arti cial reefs because they are temporary, and seldom become a hazard to navigation. And now, thousands of vertical water column cultured oysters cages are becoming a part of the new aquaculture of our near shore bays. These sites are more stringently permitted by Coast Guard and others, sites now leased to private owners who own and farm the marine species grown within. This new incentive is part of a grand experiment to save our oyster industry, and many of our friends and neighbors who have made Wakulla home for many decades, providing us with the seafood delights we all so enjoy. Welcome to the greater arti cial reef community of Wakulla County. How may we help?

From FWC NewsThis report represents some events the FWC handled over the past week, May 23-May 29, however, it does not include all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement. ESCAMBIA COUNTY: Lt. Hahr was patrolling the Escambia River Wildlife Management Area at Cotton Lake. After reaching the boat ramp, he observed a car parked near the ramp with clothes and other personal belongings scattered around it on the ground. A woman was sitting in the front seat and, as he got closer, he observed a male subject hiding behind the car. When Lt. Hahr approached them, the man quickly put on a pair of shorts and stated that they had been swimming in the river and that something had bitten both of them several times while in the water. Neither of them had any indications of any kind of serious medical condition. Lt. Hahr noticed that the car was registered in Georgia and had a broken steering column with ignition wires hanging out. He attempted to identify both subjects but the man provided a false name. When asked about the spelling, the man admitted that he had a warrant out of Alabama. The woman nally located a bill of sale for the car and it was not stolen. The man was arrested on the warrant and transported to the Escambia County Jail. SANTA ROSA COUNTY: Of cer Lewis was checking the primitive campsites in Calloway Swamp when he located several people in possession of alcoholic beverages. While explaining the violations, he observed a bag of cannabis lying in a womans purse in the campsite. The woman and another man admitted that it belonged to them. A small amount of additional cannabis and paraphernalia was located. Officer Lewis issued both subjects notices to appear for possession of not more than 20 grams of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia. OKALOOSA COUNTY: Officers Rockwell and White stopped a vessel returning to Destin Pass to conduct a boating safety and shery inspection. The captain of the vessel showed the of cers red snapper they had caught and told them there were no other sh on board. The inspection later revealed a lleted gag grouper in a cooler concealed in a plastic black bag. The captain was cited for possession of gag grouper during the closed season and failure to land in whole condition.FWC Law Enforcement report

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comBeing social has many positive aspects. For the highly social creature, being alone is not a normal state of existence. There is always at least one other individual present to interact with on all levels. There is work, play, meals and many other activities to be done as a group. Social does not mean always agreeing or coexisting on a friendly basis. The common defense is an important social activity which assures the continuation of the group and many of the members existence. The social aspects of life are applicable to most of Wakulla Countys human residents, but there are other creatures which engage in this cooperative activity. Social insects, both native and exotic, work collectively for the betterment of their respective groups. A hallmark of social insects is they are almost exclusively seen in groups, but not all insects seen in groups are social. When insect eggs hatch the young often remain concentrated in an area for a few days, but unless they are social insects they will scatter to pursue their own interest. Wakulla Countys social insects includes ants, bee, wasp and termites. Each species has a society in miniature where individuals have speci c functions within the colony. Ants usually are seen busily scurrying around on the ground or other surfaces. To the casual observer, this appears as nothing more than random and meaningless motion, but reality is quite different. These are the worker ants which are most commonly viewed and are seeking food for their nest mates. It is their job during their short lives to procure an endless source of nutrition for those remaining in the nest. Remaining in the nest are many soldier ants which defend their home territory. When an intruder invades they counterattack and will move the eggs to safer locations if necessary. The queens, and there can be several in a colony, produce the next generation ants. Their title implies royal treatment, but their subterranean existence and repetitive task have little nobility associated with it. With minor variations, the social existence of ants is a caste system of assigned jobs from the moment of hatching. The society is rigid and xed with no potential for upward mobility. Wakulla County has many native species of ants. As with most insects, they seek a specialized environment which ts their requirements for food and shelter. Usually these natives are a minor nuisance, at most. Exotic, or non-native ants are common in Wakulla County. The most frequently recognized, but not the only one, is the red imported re ant. To the uninitiated, it is their bite not their red color which has earned them the descriptive term fire ant. When they bite it feels like re. Like all other ants, this exotic species has specific environmental requirements. They build their large mound-shaped nest in open sunny locations. The nests have the potential as obstacles in manicured landscapes. Mowing can be a challenge when attempting to avoid mounds which contain thousands of aggressive re ants. Additionally, livestock owners and hay producers are challenged to manage this social insects presence. The general consensus is not sociable about their presence in Wakullas landscapes, elds and pastures.

Page 2B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 thewakullanews.com By NICOLE ZEMA nzema@thewakullanews.net Families packed into the home and visitors stands at J.D. Jones Stadium at Reynolds Field on Friday, June 6 to witness the rite of passage for 254 Wakulla High School Seniors as they received their diplomas on graduation night. Smiling seniors squinted against the sunset as they scanned the crowds for their families, and those who spotted them waved, pointed and swung their honors tassels in celebration. Pomp and Circumstance played as students led across the eld and took their seats, with Superintendent Bobby Pearce, Principal Mike Crouch, school administrators and school board members standing proudly at the head of the eld. Senior Class Secretary Rachel Annaston Woofter presented the colors. Vocalist Brianna Nicole Marin delivered a styled rendition of the National Anthem. Cary Grace Mathers, treasurer, led the pledge. Senior Class Historian Savanah Ashley Hamilton led an invocation, giving thanks for families who stood by the students in the good times and the bad. James Joshua Gene Douin, class president, welcomed the crowd of thousands to the graduation ceremony. He said he forgot one small detail about serving as senior class president: I have to speak in front of thousands of people! Douin listed the class of 2014s multiple achievements, from academic excellence to athletic superiority. We waited 13 years for this moment, Douin said. And some of us waited 14. Douins joke drew laughs from the audience and seniors. The class of 2014 is the class of all classes. Nothing stands before us and nothing holds us back. Brett Tanner Deross, Brianna Nicole Marin, Doran Black McFalls, Alyssa Laura Schubert and Ryan Paul Wyatt performed Aerosmiths hit song Dream On live for the crowd. Kyla Renea Kerce performed the alma mater, The Eagles Cry. Salutatorian Alyssa Schubert said she has been imagining the moment for the past four years. Weve worked our way up to something tremendous, Schubert said. This moment, this education, is yours to take forever. We are the only class of 2014 that Wakulla High School will ever see. We made this happen. This is something we can claim on our own. Valedictorian Annalise Nicole Torres listed 10 truths about Wakulla High School that kept the senior class in fits of laughter. Her No. 1 truth said the class of 2014 is the greatest class to ever graduate from WHS, Probably since creation. We are the generation that the world has been waiting for to go out and x whats been broken, Torres said. Thanks to everyone who has been there for me and the rest of the class of 2014. You have been playmates, classmates and friends. Go off and do great things with your lives. After diplomas were awarded by Crouch (his last time before moving on to lead the Sopchoppy Education Center), Senior Class Vice President Tamia Olivia Potter gave a benediction. Pearce presented a proclamation of graduation, and released the seniors, who were all holding handfuls of fake snow. In closing, the students showered each other with the soft, white flakes. Caps went ying. Families rushed the field to hug their graduates, give owers and balloons, and pose for photos together.

We are doing things a little different this year with allowing only 2 of the Summer Reading Books to be checked out per card at a time and only for 2 weeks.

Dont wait until school is about to start in August, please allow your child to read the Summer Books they want early so they dont miss out on this years great titles. Please contact us with any questions. Library News...By SCOTT JOYNERLibrary Director


Page 4B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 thewakullanews.comBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE, June 6 It is the season of making your case in Tallahassee. Lawmakers from across the state found out Monday if they had made convincing enough cases for Gov. Rick Scott to spare their pet projects when he wielded an unusually light veto pen while trimming a bit from the state budget. Lobbying for other bills being weighed by Scott was undoubtedly still going on. Meanwhile, lawyers were already starting to put the nishing touches on their arguments about the states 2012 redistricting process, with attorneys for voting-rights groups arguing that the Legislature had improperly crafted politically motivated districts and those representing the state arguing that the giveand-take was all above-board. And Sen. John Thrasher, a country lawyer and rabid Florida State University alumnus, was making his case to take on a new post: president of his alma mater. But by midweek, the candidacy of a Supreme Court justice and the protests of some students and faculty had complicated matters a bit. After all, for everyone making a case, theres almost always someone else arguing the other side. SCOTT THE SPENDTHRIFT? There was no real surprise in Scotts decision to sign the $77 billion election-year budget approved last month by lawmakers. The surprise, to the extent there was one, was how much of the document the once-skinflint governor allowed to become law. Since he came to of ce in 2011, Scott had never vetoed less than the $142.7 million he struck from the budget the Legislature passed in 2012. His rst year in of ce, the governor slashed $615 million in potential spending, though accounting gimmicks in ated the number. And in 2013, Scott slashed almost $368 million. This year: $68.9 million. For the second year in a row, Scott also didnt make a big deal out of the budget signing. He announced it via email, then talked to reporters later, after a campaign event in Panama City. Its nice to have a budget surplus to work with, to make strategic investments, to keep our state working, more jobs, improve education, improve transportation, and thats what we did, Scott said. Still, some of the grassroots, small-government voters who helped propel Scott to of ce four years ago seemed pleased. Chris Hudson, director of the Florida chapter of Americans for Prosperity, one of a constellation of groups that have helped fuel the teaparty movement, applauded the budget signing. This budget sends the message that Florida is focused on the long-term growth of economic opportunity and prosperity for all its families and businesses, Hudson said in a statement. Other political players were less thrilled. Democrats slammed the spending plan as a porklled measure that didnt fund the states needs. Per-pupil education funding remains below 2007 levels. Bright Futures scholarships have been slashed to the bone, Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant said in a prepared statement. Nearly 1 million Floridians still lack access to affordable health care. In a re-election campaign where Rick Scott is trying desperately to run away from his failed record, one thing has not changed: Rick Scott takes care of the wealthy special interests while ignoring the needs of middle class Floridians. THRASHER: BRING IT ON When the week began, it looked like Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, might be a shoo-in for the presidency of Florida State University. The schools presidential search committee had decided to interview Thrasher, a longtime xture in state politics and chairman of the in uential Senate Rules Committee, before deciding whether to look at other candidates. On Tuesday, that changed. Ed Burr, chairman of the FSU Presidential Search Advisory Committee, said an outpouring of interest in the position led to the decision to delay the conversation with Thrasher, which was scheduled for June 11. Burr essentially said his committees initial concern that Thrashers desire for the position had kept other potential candidates from applying was disproved by Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricky Polston and state Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, D-Tallahassee, putting their names forward for the post. Educational consultant Harold McGinnis has also led papers asking to be considered. Since the meeting, we have received applications from several additional candidates, Burr wrote in a message to the committee. This has persuaded me that allowing this phase of the search to evolve before conducting any interviews would be most effective. Burr said the committee will still meet next week to consider an application deadline for the position. But Thrasher was getting more backing for the presidency --in terms of letters of support than any other applicant. Thrasher, widely considered the front-runner for the position, has received 10 letters of support, and two in opposition, since the search for a new president has been underway. None of the other 15 applicants including Polston and Rehwinkel Vasilinda has had more than two outside recommendations submitted to the search committee. Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, compared Thrasher to the Founding Fathers in saying that his legislative colleague would be an unconventional president. He has devoted his professional life to public service and the law, Gaetz said of Thrasher. But if that were a disqualifier, then Americas greatest public university, the University of Virginia, could not have been founded and managed by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe. However, Thrasher also has detractors, including faculty members and students. Leon County Commissioner Bill Proctor, a Democrat, sent a letter to the committee, saying Thrashers conservative politics will ignite a combustible, explosive and polarizing impact for students at Florida State and for other stakeholders across Leon County. Thrasher said Friday in an interview with The News Service of Florida that he didnt mind the committees decision to broaden its search. If there are people that want to apply, let them apply, he said. Im interested in the job, and I have the right to apply like everyone else. ENDING WITH A WHIMPER Meanwhile, after two weeks of lawmakers and political operatives being grilled about the 2012 redistricting process and a whodunit mystery that emerged around a map supposedly submitted to the Legislature by former Florida State University student Alex Posada, the redistricting trial underway in Leon County Circuit Court finished with three days of testimony that was well, kind of dull. There were some constituents of Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown who defended her sprawling district and said they wanted to make sure African Americans could still elect a candidate of their choice to that seat. John Guthrie, the man who led the Senate staffers who drew maps, was back on the stand. And statistical experts called by the state parried the suggestions of experts called by voting-rights organizations that the maps were the result of the kind of political gerrymandering barred by the Fair Districts amendments, which voters approved in 2010. But the most spirited remarks came not from any of the witnesses, but from Brown, who showed up this week for portions of the trial after hearing that her district was being invoked in the case against the maps. Brown, one of the first African-Americans elected to Congress in Florida since Reconstruction, rejected the arguments of plaintiffs that a different district with a lower concentration of black voters would still elect a candidate favored by African Americans. She also referred to efforts to mark the upcoming 50th anniversary of the passage of the Voting Rights Act. And its just like, it didnt happen, she said. And its just very important that African Americans need to know that they are constantly going to have to ght in order to keep representation, because there are people that would take you back. After the case wrapped up, both sides said they believed they had convinced Judge Terry Lewis. STORY OF THE WEEK: Gov. Rick Scott signed a $77 billion budget for the scal year that begins July 1, while cutting $68.9 million with his line-item veto pen. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Im a young 70. Im up to the job. You couldnt do the job in the Florida Senate, the way we do it, for 60 days without being in fairly good physical condition.--Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, on his bid for the FSU presidency at age 70.WEEKLY ROUNDUP (Recap and analysis of the week in state government)State your case HOME COUNTRYLove advice for a three-chord lothario -Janet By SLIM RANDLESYou seem kinda low this morning, sweetie, Marjorie said. Business has been kinda slow for a while now, and its wedding season, he said. Marvin Pincus business of course, is free love counseling combined with free y tying, in hopes of bringing connubial jocularity to anyone who might need it. Hey, a retired guy has to do something. But just at that moment there was a knock on the door, and standing there was Three-Chord Cortez. T.C. looked anxiously up and down the street. It wouldnt look good for the fabled bunkhouse balladeer to be seen applying for love counseling. Marvin took T.C. into his den and Marjorie brought the embarrassed cowhand some coffee. When the door had been safely closed, Cortez looked at Marvin. Mr. Pincus, he said, you may not know it, but I kinda have a reputation for being a ladies man. Marvin nodded. But I guess I do OK but sometimes I just feel used you know? Marvin nodded again. These women today just seem to have he looked around and whispered one thing on their minds. Id like to nd a woman who likes me for who I am inside, you know? Marvin nodded. I mean, I can serenade their socks off and have plenty of dates, but its just a hot Saturday night kinda life. Marvin smiled. T.C., I know what you mean. Ive heard about your success serenading the girls, but I can see you may be ready to shall we say settle down? Three-Chord (named for his semiskill at guitar picking) nodded. OK, so lets get to work. Marvin put a big number two salmon streamer hook in the fly vise, and Cortez stood and watched him. Marvins skilled hands soon tied a weighted solid-black stone y nymph and handed it to T.C.. Substantial and solid, Marvin said, without all the gaudiness of a salmon streamer. It will bring out the real you, T.C.. Thank you, sir, Cortez said. And T.C.? I want you to not even kiss a girl until after the third date. Let her get to know you. The long-riding lotharios mouth dropped open, showing the pearly white teeth that had melted so many hearts. Is that even possible, Mr. Pincus? Work on it, my boy. Work on it.

By LES HARRISON and SHELLEY SWENSON of the Extension Of ceSummer has arrived for Wakulla Countys gardeners. The temperatures are in the 90s and seasonal pop-up showers are supplementing irrigation efforts. One warm-season favorite currently delivering a generous bounty are peppers. The popularity is possibly traced to the variety of cultivars available for every taste and culinary tradition. The peppers grown in most local gardens originated in Mexico and have been grown for over 5,000 years. These members of the Capsicum genus are not related to the spice black pepper which is produced from peppercorns which come from India. Commonly known plants in the same botanical family, Solanaceae, include tomatoes and night shade. The Capsicum peppers were introduced to Europe by Spanish traders returning from the New World. Their rapid spread to cultures and countries around the globe is a tribute to their usefulness and ease of production. Over the years plant breeders on every continent have produced peppers which met the taste and needs of diverse populations and speci c environments. With the increased interest in locally produced food, the UF/IFAS Wakulla Extension Of ce is currently growing several varieties in the demonstration garden to determine if production is possible locally. Jimmy Nardello Italian peppers are one of the selections. This pepper was brought to America in the 1880s from southern Italy by the Nardello family when they immigrated to Connecticut. This long, thin skinned pepper ripens to a deep red with a distinctive mellow flavor. It can be used fresh, in dishes, and dries easily. It is a proli c producer in the Wakulla Extension Demonstration Garden. Another test selection is the Cubanelle or Cuban Pepper. It has an elongated shape and is slightly spicy. This pepper can be eaten when it matures to a yellowish-green appearance, but ripens to a bright red. As the name implies, it is popular in Cuba and other Caribbean locations as an ingredient in Latin dishes. Carmen is another sweet pepper growing in the demonstration garden. It is an Italian bulls horn type which has an elongated shape and is six inches long at maturity. The medium thick esh is the sweetest when it is ripe red, but these peppers are sweet even when green. One of the improved traits is the earliness to reach red ripeness. Like all peppers, Carmen will produce the highest number of peppers when grown in full sun, and given proper nutrients and water. For those concerned with watching their weight, peppers are rich in vitamins, low in calories and add bright color to a variety of dishes. For the patient gardener red bell peppers are simply mature green bell peppers, but with more vitamin C and beta-carotene. As a bell pepper ages its flavor becomes sweeter and milder. UF/IFAS Master Gardener Bill Osborne is managing the pepper demonstration plots and the pepper plants. He is a graduate of the 2013 Master Gardener class. Visitors are welcome to view the UF/IFAS Wakulla County demonstration garden from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To learn more about growing peppers in Wakulla County, visit the UF/IFAS Wakulla County website at http://wakulla.ifas.u edu or call (850) 9263931. Les Harrison is UF/ IFAS Wakulla County Extension Director and Shelley Swenson is UF/ IFAS Wakulla County Family and Consumer Sciences Agent. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, June 12, 2014 Page 5B Green Scene Recycling is popular in todays society, but have you carried the use of often discarded items into your landscaping? Many people are now cleaning out their attic and garage in search of ornamental items to create unique displays. This allows you to save money in landscaping while keeping yet another thing out of the landll. Creativity is necessary to incorporate used items successfully. When done correctly, these items can be beautiful additions. Take advantage of an old home or building that is being torn down and secure boards, bricks, and windows to use. Consider hanging a mirror framed like a window to make you think you are looking through a window rather than looking at the garden behind you. Hang an old bicycle for interest. Broken concrete is often left at a construction site. Build stone retainer walls by placing the broken side of the concrete on the outside. Over time, weather and watering will make the concrete look like real rock. Edge owerbeds or create walkways or patios. Fill in between the pieces with sand for a mosaic effect. Lay down carpet over an area for a new garden bed and let it sit for several weeks. Afterwards, the grass underneath will decompose making easy digging. Use carpet for pathways and top with mulch or stone. Make sure you use woven carpet, not rubber-backed and lay it as you would in your home with the ber up. In ower beds, carpet can be laid as a weed barrier by cutting a big X where you want to plant. Turn in the corners under, plant your plants and top with mulch. Water and fertilizer will drain through the carpet but the weeds will not come through. With no light, there will be no weed germination. A layer of 3-4 sheets of newspaper acts as an excellent weed barrier as well. It will slowly break down into the soil. If you have a shredder you can add the paper to your compost bin; it works great. Styrofoam peanuts can be used in the bottom of potted plants to help reduce the weight of big planters. First put in a dryer sheet or coffee liner to cover the drainage hole and then a layer of peanuts. Next add potting soil, then your plants. Break up larger foam pieces for use in larger pots or as a base for raised garden beds. Cut discarded mini blinds into six to eight in length for plant id tags. Give your garden a night mood by placing candles in jars, clay pots, tin cans or any other nds. Make your own luminaries. For a small investment you can use a ceramic bit to drill drainage holes in bowls, cups and pots. Consider a trailing cactus in an old colander or sieve. Baskets that have seen their day can be used in a garden for a fun look for a season or so. Line the basket with plastic, poke a few drainage holes and plant your favorite annual. Baskets are excellent for bromeliad too. Hang them from trees or bushes for a fun change. Next time you chop a tree down or dig up a big root, take another look at it. Nature can produce an interesting sculpture. Tuck bromeliads, orchids or mosses around them and you have wonderful garden art. You can even use branches to stake plaints and it will look more natural. Cut slices of the trunk for a stepping path. Look around your home to see what other items you might be able to use. Dont forget that items can also be used for yard art. Cans and older dishes as can be used as planters, utensils as markers and wind chimes, tree branches and trunks as sculpture or bed sets as benches (use the headboard as the back and the footboard cut in half as arms). An old box spring can easily be turned into a quaint trellis for vining plants. Or dress up a worn metal coat rack with ivy or a hanging birdhouse. Choose to make creative edging with glass bottles of all sizes. You can use anything from mason jars to wind bottles. Consider your color choice. You dont want the color of the bottles to compete with the color of the owers. Keep the bottles at least two inches from the grass edge for ease when hand weeding along the bottles. Dont use an electric or gas powered weedeater near the bottles for obvious reasons. Finishing touches can make a garden beautiful. In these cases the nishing touches were items about to be destroyed that instead became treasures. Re-purposing in this way is a good way to bring out your creative side and build a uniquely beautiful garden area. Shelley Swenson is UF/IFAS Wakulla County Family and Consumer Sciences Agent.
