Franklin Capt. Junior Clarence A. Ladd Jr. George Everett Bubba Pelt Christmas in July Two Sections75 Cents 75 CentsServing Wakulla County For More Than A Century Serving Wakulla County For More Than A CenturyPublished Weekly, Read Daily Published Weekly, Read DailyOur 119th Year, 27th Issue Thursday, July 3, 2014 newsThe WakullaBy WILLIAM SNOWDEN and NICOLE ZEMAof The Wakulla NewsAfter six hours of deliberation, the jury returned a unanimous recommendation of life in prison for Andrew Wilson for the March 2011 murders of John McKenzie and Patrick Pittman. Gabrielle McKenzie, who nearly died herself in the attacks, her family and friends, and the family of Pittman all appeared stunned as the jury announced its decision about 7:15 p.m. On the defense side, after the victims families had left the courtroom, lead defense attorney Andy Thomas gave a hug to Wilson, and then Wilsons mother and stepfather. It was a very, very dif cult and heartwrenching case, Thomas said. I have nothing but sympathy for the victims and survivors. He called the jurys recommendation a very wise and merciful decision and said he believed they saw the incident as an abberation in this young man referring to Wilson. Thomas added that he was glad that he didnt listen to advice from those who suggested he should seek a change of venue from Wakulla County, saying he found the jurors to be extremely attentive and obviously took their charge very seriously, pointing out that they spent more than 10 hours deliberating the guilt and penalty verdicts. Second chair defense attorney Steven Been said, Im very, very grateful that this jury showed mercy in this case. He added that his client and the defense teams hearts went out to the victims families and their pain. I hope everyone can move on, he said. The prosecutors were philosophical in their responses. We asked the jury to recommend the death penalty and they chose to recommend life, said Assistant State Attorney Eddie Evans. That was their decision to make and we will all have to live with it. Assistant State Attorney Jon Fuchs thanked the jury for their service as well, saying they clearly did not take their jury service lightly and how he respected the effort they put into it. Asked about the decision, he responded: Thats the prerogative of the jury and I would never question that. Its not clear when Wakulla Circuit Judge Charles Dodson will sentence Wilson. JURY DELIBERATIONS FRIDAY, 4:15 P.M. After a couple of hours of deliberation, jurors indicated they wanted to hear Wilsons taped confession to Wakulla investigators after his capture in Georgia. Much has been made of the confession, which was made hours after the murders, with the state contending Wilsons matter-of-fact demeanor in recounting the killings showed he was remorseless. The defense has noted Wilsons contention to investigators that he was highly intoxicated as the result of using Adderall a prescription medication used for treating Attention Deficit Disorder. The defense has contended the Adderall, an amphetamine, produced a manic episode in Wilson that led to the murders. Jurors watched the hourlong confession then returned to the jury room to continue their deliberations.

Faulkner was honored with music, prayer and gifts. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net Sopchoppy resident Kenneth Faulkner, 91, was one of the thousands of Army soldiers who fought to keep our independence secure in WWII. He was honored at a valor ceremony organized by Big Bend Hospice on June 26 at his home. Myrtle Hoffman, who works in community relations for Big Bend Hospice, said the valor ceremony is a way to honor the veterans in the hospice network. We come out to honor them and pay respect to their service, Hoffman said. We offer it, and if they accept, then we come out and honor them. A chaplain, musician, social worker and veteran volunteer were present at Faulkners valor ceremony to say a prayer, play patriotic songs, and honor his service. Faulkner was also given a letter from the CEO of Big Bend Hospice, lapel pins and a coin, a ag donated by Woodmen of the World, a handmade knitted ag lap blanket and ag pillowcase. And the music was great, Faulkners daughter Audrey Fleck said. Massachusetts native Faulkner served in the US Army, Div. 66, from 1944 to 1946, attaining the rank of private rst class. He was about 20 years old when he left home for Europe to ght in Germany. During the war, it wasnt too peachy, Faulkner said. But, as a 20-year-old guy, Faulkner said, I wasnt scared of anything. I could run a mile like it was nothing with a 60-pound pack on my back. Faulkner said he remembers running into trouble crossing the Rhine River. We met up with the Russians eventually, he said. But we did a lot of ghting in that area. We had a lot of tanks. They were taking down people left and right. Theyd run over you and keep on going. Life didnt mean nothing. If you got in the way of something, you got killed, that was it. Faulkner said when the soldiers would eat at the mess hall during the war, local children would scour the garbage cans for apple cores and scraps. People dont realize how the people suffered over there, he said. They had to eat garbage. The Americans gave them food a lot of times, the kids especially. Five or 6 years old, no clothes, dirty. They were good little children. Its just sad, the things that happened. Faulkner said he stayed in Germany after the war for a while after recovering from burns he sustained from a tank. When returning home, soldiers stopped in New Jersey, and Faulkner said the homecoming was a big deal.

By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net Wakulla residents packed into the fellowship hall at Crawfordville United Methodist Church June 17 to learn about Department of Transportation plans to widen US 319 from East Ivan Road to the Leon County line. Conceptual designs posted around the room depicted oneway pair highway or a four-lane highway alternatives. Citizen Dr. Andrea Carter said her husbands former law ofce is located at US 319 and MLK. Carter said Alternative 1, the 4-lane option, would not leave enough room for the building. Alternative 2 is the conceptual plan for the one-way pair option. With alternative 2 it takes some right of way, Carter said. Enough to save the building. Alternative 2 seems to protect the Crawfordville town center more. Wilhelmina Morrison said the small florist shop on US 319 will be affected by the four lane option, and OK with the one-way pair. We own that, Morrison said. But it looks like it will be saved on this. Bob Myhre said he has lived on US 319 next door to Wakulla Springs Baptist Church for 38 years. They will be purchasing some of my property, Myhre said. I dont know exactly how much since its so early in the process. This has all taken quite a while, so its nothing new. Its inevitable. Myhre said at one time US 319 was a two-lane road with very little trafc. I never thought there would be a four-lane highway and divider, Myhre said. Ill have to turn right, and then turn around to go south if I want to go toward Crawfordville. Jim and Linda Gerus of Crawfordville, who have lived adjacent to the used car lot on US 319 for 14 years, said the new right-of-way will take 30 to 40 feet of their land, but wont take their house. It just makes the highway closer, Linda said. Were not too excited about that. However, Jim said the DOT representative was very helpful in answering questions and showing them the conceptual designs. Donna Green, DOT public information specialist, said public comments will determine if DOT constructs either the one-way pair highway or a four-lane highway. From what she heard June 17, comments concerning both highway plans were balanced at the forum, she said. There are a lot of questions, because were in the PD&E phase (Project Development and Environment), Green said. The next step is design. With design, you actually put ink on paper, and they will see where the lines are going to be. There will be a lot of questions. The design phase is only partially funded right now. Green said the designs will be presented to the public, and there will be more meetings at the halfway point, when 50 to 60 percent plans are completed, and again with 90 percent of the plans are determined, before right-of-way acquisition moves forward. Since construction is not yet funded, no timeline could be given. Theres no money yet to build it, Green said. Were looking at years.

From the Front Page They had a big parade and had all the military bands playing, Faulkner said. It was good. There were thousands of people. We had a meal that Ive never forgotten. Any kind of steak you wanted, and anything you wanted with it. After WWII, Faulkner went back to work at General Telephone, which Verizon took over, he said. His former girlfriend had a new beau, but he had a new admirer anyway. My mother was chasing him around everywhere he went, Fleck said. She was friends with his sister. He was a handsome devil. I can see why my mom was after him. There is a photo where he has a white Tshirt on, a pack of cigarettes rolled up in the sleeve, some grease pomade going on. Faulkner said his ex girlfriend got married, but had second thoughts after the wedding, and wanted to get back together. He said, I wanted no part in that. Too complicated. I didnt get married for a good while after that. Faulkner is the father of two girls, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Faulkners stepdaughter Wanda Daniels was present at the honor ceremony. Her mother married Faulkner after his rst wife died. Fleck said her dad has just recently started opening up about his wartime experiences. In fact, it was during one of his hospital stays that I told him I wanted to know his story because future generations should not be allowed to forget, Fleck said. Faulkners service 70 years ago is a thread of the fabric that has made this nation strong. Americans are ghters, Faulkner said. Be careful when you get an American mad. I hope we dont get into any big wars again.WWII Vet honoredPHOTO SPECIAL TO THE NEWSKenneth Faulkner is pictured surrounded by his daughters, chaplain, musician, social worker and veteran volunteer after the valor ceremony. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net The elimination of anonymous code enforcement complaints made for spirited commentary at the June 16 meeting of the Wakulla County Board of Commissioners. Also, a special presentation informed the board and citizens of the kickoff of the Capital City to the Sea Trails project. ANONYMOUS CODE ENFORCEMENT COMPLAINTS Commissioner Ralph Thomas brought forth an agenda item to direct staff to no longer allow anonymous code enforcement complaints half of which are without merit. He also put forth a motion to direct staff to change code enforcement forms and the website to require name, address, phone number and e-mail address of everyone who makes a complaint. Thomas motion passed 4-1, with Commissioner Howard Kessler voting no. Its a substantial drain on time and resources on a department that is already stretched thin and has other jobs to do, Thomas said. I think we can eliminate some of that. Thomas said there is currently no ordinance or written policy that directs county staff to accept anonymous complaints. Steve Cushman, who serves on the code board, said he brought the motion forward at a previous meeting. Anybody can call in on anybody for any reason, Cushman said. It costs us $45 to $60 anytime we go out on a complaint. We ll a lot of our time with complaints that dont even exist when we get there. Hugh Taylor said that he and his wife have been victims of anonymous complaints several times, which has only resulted in a waste of taxpayer money. But, Taylor said, there has to be a provision for anonymous complaints, a protective shield, for people who are intimidated. Dana Peck asked commissioners to think of that little old Panacea lady who lives next to Animal House, that are making her life miserable with violations, and do not care. Are they going to terrorize me, and make my life more miserable than it already is? Should I just shut up and live with the lth? Peck said county employees can ask questions to separate the bogus from the legit, as opposed to passing a law ending anonymous complaints. Commissioner Randy Merritt said he understands the concerns, and asked Thomas to amend the motion to allow anonymous complaints in serious threats to health, safety and welfare. Kessler said any person who needs to make an anonymous complaint may call him personally. He said, Meet me at the spot, let me see it with my own eyes, and if I think they have a valid thing, then Ill make the complaint with my name on it. There are always people that will abuse the system. But to take that system away that protect thems, I think is wrong. Merritt said some function of Kesslers solution would resolve the issue. CAPITAL CITY TO THE SEA TRAILS An environmental study has kicked off for a 30-mile trail project on US 98 within the Capital City to the Sea Trails (CC2ST) master plan. Jon Sewell, project manager, gave a presentation to the board. CC2ST is envisioned to be a series of trails that will connect various regions of Leon County and Wakulla County and in the future Franklin, Gadsden, and Jefferson Counties. Some of the existing trails that make up this system include the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail and the Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail. Its moving forward, Sewell said. And its continuing to attract funding. Sewell said the environmental study will satisfy the National Environmental Policy Acts requirements to enable the project to attract federal funds. The project will be staggered into three segments, to more easily deal with environmental and physical challenges along the way. The rst projected phase will connect the existing St. Marks Trail on US 98, terminating at Medart Elementary School. The second section will connect the St. Marks Trail to the lighthouse (County Road 59). The last section will connect Medart to Ochlocknee Bay. Were looking at an 18-month schedule, Sewell said. Our internal schedule says 12 months. We want to be very aggressive at how we go after this project. There are a lot of people waiting in line to see this happen, and happen quickly. We feel like its going to be funded immediately upon completion of the PD&E. Sewell added that the Wakulla Environmental Institute will be the centerpiece of the corridor, with the trails connecting to it. Thats another reason to push this along as quickly as we can, he said. Kessler thanked Sewell and the Kimberly-Horn rm, saying the project, which has been a long-time coming, is a work of love. Its going to have a real economic impact on this county, Kessler said. Its part of the overall ecotourism that this county is moving to, and this is such a great thing. In other news from the meeting The board tabled the adoption of the revised Wakulla County Airport Master Plan Update. Commissioner Thomas said he would like to see a further gathering of facts and information, and discussion with the Tarpine Homeowners Association, before a decision is made. Harold Ross was appointed as the Wakulla County Veterans Service Of cer. His of ce hours will be 8 a.m. to noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and 1 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. The board approved a request to reduce the code enforcement lien against The Bank of New York Mellon, who acquired and cleaned up a property with existing liens after the owners died. Commissioner Randy Merritt proposed the lien be reduced to $3,849 the amount the county is out of pocket. County Attorney Heather Encinosa said as the county has been trying to clear up old code enforcement liens by reducing them to recover the countys hard cost. Properties are coming into compliance quicker, and people are paying off the nes when theyre small. Hugh Taylor said he never got a break on a ne. Taylor said, The Mellon Bank? They dont have the money? Bull. County Administrator David Edwards said the county has shifted philosophies, and its working. He said, Were getting more money in, versus nothing. A public hearing will be scheduled in the future to discuss a revised ordinance clarifying that non-partisan elections apply to county commissioners, clerk of court, property appraisers, sheriff, supervisor of elections and tax collector. Those are the offices the Charter Review Commission will impact with the nonpartisan elections charter amendment. Kessler requested that previous meeting minutes be amended to include the correct phrasing of geometric design written in a letter to DOT that asked for traf c and safety study details due to public concern for the future US 98/319 intersection. A motion to correct the meeting minutes passed. The board approved an amended letter to DOT requesting reevaluation of the proposed realignment plan for US 319/98 intersection. Kessler amended the draft that will be sent to DOT. Randy Nicklaus presented the human service resources available thr ough 211 Big Bend, a non-pro t funded through the United Way, grants and the government. 211 is a clearing house for all human services in the Big Bend region, and also a 24-hour hotline for crisis intervention and suicide prevention. 211 can be dialed through a cell phone or landline.

The original article stated: After high school, Cushman attended University of North Texas and joined the ROTC. He graduated with a degree in psychology, entered the Air Force and served for seven years until he took a voluntary disenrollment offered during the Clinton Administration. He remained on standby until he turned 35. Cushman trained under the AFROTC Flight Indoctrination Program while attending college at University of Northern Texas. He left the Air Force under a voluntary disenrollment with honorable discharge status in August 1990, about a month after graduation from college. We regret the error.Editor, The News: I would like to begin by offering an apology to the citizens of Wakulla County. As you may be aware, I am a candidate for County Commission, District 4, and recently, many of you might have heard, read or witnessed my rants about certain local leaders and citizens. Unfortunately, I am being attacked with negative publicity, which I anticipate will continue. There is nothing I can do about it, despite my attempts. It is my responsibility to bear the consequences of my previous reactions, as I am the one who allowed myself to be sucked into the negative debate. My commitment to you, the public, is to focus all my energy and actions on the campaign ahead and listen to you for what I can bring to this county to help move us forward and bring balance to the current board. Wakulla County is a great place to live but I truly believe it can be better, and that is why I am running for the commission seat. Currently I am working toward the development of an oyster hatchery business that will introduce locally grown oysters into our economy, and to assist the rising aquaculture industry here in our county. There are many here who are fourth and fth generation seafood workers. I respect their way of life, and commend their efforts to sustain their livelihoods despite the ever-increasing loss of our sh, oyster and shrimp populations. As president of Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, I see rst-hand the problems our county faces with regard to litter, and the need for continued education on recycling, reducing and reusing our resources. Volunteerism is a passion of mine. As part of my commitment to this county, I will continue to be out in our community working and giving back. I will also continue working with the current BOCC to change our current litter ordinance to help keep the trash out of our bays and waterways, educating citizens on how they can help and working to improve our environment. For too long this county has been held back from growth, economic development and change. It is time to correct this! We need to evolve. We need to rebound and we certainly need to work together. I recommend you take a look at the county commission meetings from February of this year to present to understand the current issues and challenges. I know we will never have complete agreement on every issue but we must learn to compromise and adhere to a set of standards that are fair and equal to all. This is a democracy. All sides should be equally represented, fairly heard, and decisions reached based on the greater good for the entire community, not special interests. As we move forward through the upcoming months of intense campaigns to the election, my focus will be on making decisions based on a successful future. I get up daily and face the world with a strong heart, and a love for life. I am committed to seeing this campaign through while maintaining my strong ethical principles of community service and working for in the best interest of all our citizens. I look forward to the campaign with my head held high. I once said, My resolve to succeed for the people is stronger than your abilities to beat me down. I stand committed to these words. I appreciate your consideration for commissioner, District 4. Steve CushmanNPA candidate for county commissioner Editor, The News: As the president of the Wakulla Country Friends of the Library, I have worked closely with departing director, Scott Joyner, for several years. He was devoted to the success of the library in our county during a time when funding cuts threatened to close it down. His hard work is more appreciated than he will ever know, he will be missed, and he will be a hard man to replace. The childrens summer programs are underway right now at the Wakulla County Public Library and the Friends are working hard to provide the funds for this and many other library programs. Our current fundraiser is a drawing to be held on Oct. 4 at noon after our book sale. Purchase tickets now at the library to win a 50-inch Toshiba LED at screen TV. You do not have to be present to win. Tickets are one for $5 and ve tickets for $20. Please support this community treasure our library! Sue Belford President, Friends of the LibraryEditor, The News: In a recent study by the Natural Resource Defense Council, it was found that one in 10 beaches in the U.S. are dangerously unsafe for swimming due to pollution. The primary cause discovered is the degrading of streams, rivers and wetlands, all of which lter these pollutants. In Wakulla County our local beaches are regularly closed and posted with signs warning the public that they are unsafe for swimming. Seeing these signs recently posted at Shell Point, my 88-year-old dad commented on how that must really be devastating to property values and hurt potential sales of waterfront properties in this area. He is correct. Herein lies the sad irony in this whole wetlands debate: a handful of realtors and commissioners with close ties to real estate are the loudest proponents of eliminating our counties wetlands ordinance. Rather than protect property values by protecting our water quality which includes protecting wetlands, they want to develop as close to the waters edge as possible, 25 feet based on state setbacks with variances allowed by the state to zero feet. Who wants to vacation, much less buy coastal property, in an area where beaches are polluted and are constantly closed? If we want to be an eco-tourism destination, why arent we working to protect our ecosystem that makes that possible? We take pride in our new TCC Wakulla Environmental Institute, yet four of ve of our current county commissioners lack the vision needed to support that direction. When you hear these particular commissioners and these particular realtors crying property rights think again. Theres more to this story. This is about the ability of a few to make big profits by maximizing every square foot of the remaining coastal real estate. Thousands of acres of privately owned coastal real estate has yet to be developed in Wakulla County. If developed incorrectly by removing current setbacks, the citizens of Wakulla County will pick up the tab in the future due to direct damage to our coastal environment, lower property values, and a further degrading of the tax base affecting everything from our school system to our sheriffs department. No one is saying stop development, but it needs to be done right. In November, I will be voting to keep our local wetlands ordinance, and I plan to vote against any candidate, whether running for a commission seat, school board, or any other of ce, that has such shortsighted vision as to support eliminating the Wakulla County Wetlands Ordinance. We owe this to our children, for their future. We need real leaders who have a vision for a sustainable Wakulla County. Leaders who value our resources, not leaders who are constantly trying to exploit them for their own profit. Do your research and ask each candidate where they stand on this issue, then decide. Its seriously time for a change! David Damon CrawfordvilleEditor, The News: Recently, Wakulla County Commissioner Ralph Thomas wrote a letter concerning loss of revenue when unusable land is taxed at a lower rate (Math shows wetlands issue raises taxes, Opinion, June 19). Mr. Thomas makes the argument that those with unusable buffers for wetlands do not pay their proportionate share of taxes. What Mr. Thomas failed to tell his readers is the value to all citizens the buffers and wetlands provide in their ability to lter water. Studies show 92 percent of phosphorus and 95 percent of nitrogen can be removed from water passing through an intact and healthy wetland. How valuable is this filtering mechanism? Lets take a look down in Brevard County where the Indian River Lagoon is in dire condition. In 2013 Florida Gov. Rick Scott vetoed $2 million for projects to clean up the Indian River Lagoon. The State of Florida failed to protect wetlands and then stuck local government with the clean-up bill. This year, on April 3, Brevard County Commissioners voted 4-1 to increase storm water fees from $36 to $64 per year per single family residence to help clean up the Indian River Lagoon. Then, on April 28, state Sen. Joe Negron issued a press release announcing the spending of $231 million for short and long-term recommendations to improve the environmental and economic health of the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee river systems and the Indian River Lagoon. Because the State of Florida failed to protect its wetlands, Floridians are now spending $231 million to x the water quality in the Indian River lagoon and two rivers. I say 75-foot buffers and the wetlands they protect more than make up for any lower revenue they produce. If we dont protect our wetlands now the next generation, our children, will pay the cost of repairing and replacing wetlands just like the residents of Brevard County. Vote yes to keep our protections for Wakulla County wetlands. Eugene Watkins Crawfordoville Editor, The News: Alligator skin seems to be resilient, tough and so shiny. Unlike snakes, alligators have the most interesting skin and that is not said to denigrate snakes. Theyre all special and I treat them with respect. I will need a resilient skin and alligator will do just ne. Sadly, no real teeth to match the alligator skin. If I had them I might take a bite out of the falsehoods circulating about the Wakulla Environmental Institutes idea to sub-lease Wakulla Springs State Park conservation land. Whatever I bit off would taste so bad I would have to spit it out. Particularly if that morsel included the section that insults my colleague, friend and the first female park manager in Florida: Sandy Cook. After 37 years with the Florida Park Service, Sandy retired. In her home off Spring Creek Highway are accolades from the Governor and Cabinet honoring her as the states top resource manager, among many. TCCs WEI has some gall to claim that a speci c 2,000 acres at Wakulla Springs State Park was not managed since acquisition in 1999. The reason for this fabrication lies in the deceit of the proposition itself. Dr. Murdaugh told the Board of Trustees in April, This will be a game changer in Wakulla County. The game changer TCC promises is swimming in a bacteriafilled sinkhole lake, and ignoring the denial (based on public input) of a DEP proposal three years ago to have RVs on the same location. They just moved the site a few feet to give the impression that they understand the cave system for which the land was acquired, but the idea has not improved with age. Instead, TCC insults not only Sandy Cook. The lies have now been told often enough shrinking brains to a reptilian core. Their lies like any good propaganda have people so excited they can see gold under their Christmas trees. Sadly, those citizens can never again be convinced otherwise at this point. But like the alligators in the river always watching, always vigilant, always protecting its young some of us watch, read, and decide for ourselves. And we look out for our friends like Sandy Cook and all of the incredibly hard working staff at the park and the Division of Recreation and Parks in Tallahassee. Madeleine H. Carr Crawfordville

The realignment affects Sopchoppy because water lines and a tank located under the intersection connects to the city, and must be relocated to accommodate changes to the intersection. The city will pay $13,425 for plans that will evaluate needs and local impact of the realignment by Baskerville Donavan engineering. In the second phase of planning, the city will split a $67,000 bill with Wakulla County to execute planning and blueprints to relocate infrastructure (water pipes), which connect to Sopchoppy. Council Member Eddie Evans said that planning study will determine what kind of pipes will be needed, if additional pipes will be used, and if a tank needs to be added or modi ed. City Attorney Dan Cox said as a registered lobbyist, he could send a petition letter to DOT to pay for the physical relocation of pipes. The council approved this also. It doesnt hurt to ask, Public Works Director Leonard Tartt said. In other news from the meeting The July meeting of the Sopchoppy City Council will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 7. A city budget meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 28 at 6:30 p.m. at city hall. Leland (Lee) Smith, regional manager at Baskerville Donovan, was introduced as the city engineer.

SNYDEROnce again, we come to the time of year when we celebrate the Fourth of July in remembrance of all the wonderful things this country means to us. The celebration will include reworks, parades and picnics when the hot dog will be king for a day. It is a wonderful time of the year. Yet, in the midst of all of the celebrations, there are a few black clouds blocking the sunlight. Just the other day the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching a news program where they featured somebody offended by the American ag displayed in a meeting they were attending. We both looked at each other and sadly shook our heads. I am not sure why the American flag offended them so, but I have the perfect solution. I am not sure why people do not think of solutions like this, but if the American ag offends you then go to a country that has a ag it does not offend you. Simple. Problem solved. No more offense. The American flag reminds us of all the wonderful things we enjoy in this country. The Fourth of July is an opportunity to express our thanks for living in a country such as this. We still have some freedoms here that the rest of the world is envious of. The ag represents the foundation of our country and the ongoing sacrifice that has kept it free for so long. How can that be offensive to anybody? At the same time another story on the news caught our attention concerning the 9/11 museum in New York City. From some of the things I am seeing on TV most of the people in America have forgotten what happened on 9/11. Somebody walked in, saw the symbol of the cross and became physically ill by it. This was a little confusing to me. These are people who say they do not believe in God. Personally, I do not believe a word they say. Here is this person, who does not believe in God, who does not believe in religion, sees a religious symbol and becomes offended and physically ill by it. They surely need help and I recommend a group of industrial-strength psychiatrists and therapists along with a team of military medical doctors to pump out their stomach. If they really did not believe in religion, as they claim, the symbol would not mean anything to them, and furthermore, it would not affect them in any way or fashion. The fact that it offended them reveals to those who have at least two brain cells wandering around upstairs that here is a religious person. Only a religious person would react to a religious symbol. While I am on the topic, another matter really annoys me. Why is prayer so offensive to these people who say they do not believe in religion? The fact that it makes them angry and offends them tells me something about what they say they believe. Why is it that prayer offends them and why are they so afraid of prayer and of God? Their fear of God suggests that deep down somewhere, past their stomach, they believed God just might exist. This brings to me Pascals wager. If God exists (and Christianity is true) and you choose not to believe, then you lose everything. But, if God exists (and Christianity is true) and you choose to believe, then you gain everything. I do not believe it coul To date nobody has ever proven the Bible to be anything but true. For 2,000 years, people have desperately attempted to destroy the Bible or at least discredit it and yet it is the number one seller in the world today. What if this Bible, that nobody can prove to be untrue, is absolutely and positively true? Are these people who say they do not believe willing to wager everything? Why is it I must accept what they do and say, but they do not have to accept what I do and say? Why do I have to respect them, but they do not have to respect me? Is that being a true red, white and blue American patriot? Jesus put it in the right perspective when he said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesars; and unto God the things that are Gods (Matthew 22:21). Our problem today is that we have confused Caesar with God and no longer understand the difference. The problem is, Caesar does not have all the answers, but God does. The reign of Caesar has collapsed, but God is still on the throne, Almighty God is He. If you do not respect the ag, at least respect those who do.The Rev. James L.

Times will remain at 7 p.m. By TRACY RENEE LEEWhen I was a little girl, I lived in a small town lled with elderly relatives. My relatives would periodically pass away and so at a young age, I had quite a vast knowledge of funeral traditions and funeral etiquette. The rst time I became aware that there were Varying Rules of Etiquette and Tradition for such an occasion, was at the funeral of my maternal grandfather. Upon notification that my grandfather had passed away, my paternal grandmother quickly gathered my siblings and me, and off we went to the grand clothing stores in downtown Baton Rouge, La. I was surprised that I needed special clothing for the event. When I was young, girls were required to wear dresses to school, so I had plenty from which to choose. For some reason, however, although my dresses had always been adequate for funerals in the past, my grandmother felt that they would not do for this particular funeral. She purchased each of us, me and my siblings, beautiful semi-formal clothing. My brother, a beautiful navy suit with a crisp white dress shirt and a dark tie, my sisters and I, each beautiful navy dresses with white patent leather shoes, white anklet socks with lace on them and white patent leather handbags. She also purchased us dainty white gloves and lovely white hats to complete our ensembles. It was rather like Easter, but the clothes were not pastel and the fabrics were heavier and more tailored than usual. After she was satised with our clothes, off we went to Opelousas, La., the location of the funeral home where my mother and her immense family were gathered. Upon arrival, I realized that this funeral was unlike any other funeral I had attended thus far in life. The funeral home was large and filled with my very sad relatives. Of course, sadness is not, in and of itself, unusual at a funeral, but my relatives were overly sad and I attributed their sadness and all of the extra attention toward our clothes and behavior on my grandfathers unusually violent death. I was a child, and although funerals did not bother or confuse me, this funeral was somehow very different, and I just could not quite gure out why. As I grew older, I realized my parents had cultural differences within their marriage, and I was witnessing the variances of culture in its fullest extent, the expression of grief upon the death of a signi cant loved one. The funerals I had previously attended were always from my dads side of the family. His family practiced a gentle Arklatex Christian religion and the funerals were in accordance with their beliefs. This funeral was on my moms side of the family. Unlike my dad, my mother had been raised a Southern Louisiana Cajun Catholic, and their funerals, as I was about to learn, were very different from the ones to which I was accustomed. The reason I have shared this with you, is that I am constantly asked by people, What is appropriate to wear to a funeral? There is not a simple answer to this question. Clothing and even behavior are predicated on religion, culture and tradition. One should accommodate each funeral to the traditional systems practiced by the grieving family. After all, we go to a funeral to pay our respects. Should we not then practice respect towards the familys religion, culture and traditions? Paying ones respects does not mean that we merely show up and sign the register book. Paying ones respects encompasses myriad components. Of course, most of us know that we wear subdued colors, we speak with our quiet voices and one hopes we clean ourselves up before going to the funeral. Many people believe that black is the only color one should wear when in attendance. Although in some groups this is true, in others it is not. For a Buddhist, white is the appropriate color for bereavement. My basic rule for funeral decorum is the same as it is for attire and language: Be clean, be respectful and be modest. If you will observe this rule, you should be able to attend almost any funeral and not be offensive to anyone. 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.

The families of victims whove been missing for years or decades identifying the body of their loved one, for example, can bring closure. For me, being diagnosed with bromyalgia was also a relief it meant that I had a name for my chronic pain, says Komanchuk, whose pain was so intense over a period of several years that she had to retire as a schoolteacher. Fibromyalgia syndrome is a complex, chronic condition of widespread muscular pain and fatigue. Komanchuk shares tips to keep in mind for those suffering from an indeterminate condition. Trust in yourself. At times, the pain was so intense that I was certain my flesh was tearing away from my bones, says Komanchuk, who was just like the more than 100 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain, which costs nearly $600 billion annually in medical treatments and lost productivity, according to the Institute of Medicine. Despite her unmistakable pain, the critical doubt from others as to what she was experiencing was disheartening, at times causing her to doubt herself. Dont quit! Despite the immense scope of chronic pain, very little is spent on research to nd better ways to manage pain. Komanchuk was faced with the prospect of spending the rest of her life in a nursing home. Convinced that there was hope for her in overcoming fibromyalgia, she persisted in her search for wellness answers. Seriously consider alternatives. She was able to achieve what she thought was impossible not just temporary relief, but permanent, lasting mind-body-spirit wellness. Alternative treatment guided her to recognize the layers of stress throughout her life that she believes were a primary driver of her chronic pain. All I can say is keep your eyes open, keep the hope alive and dont give up! she says. I just wish I could give others a piece of the relief that Ive found. 3 MO FOR ONLY $6 *Keep up with whats happening this summer Promo Code: SPLASH Expires: 07-31-14Marriages Anniversaries Obituaries Births School Religion Sports Classifieds Legal NoticesSubscribe Today & Stay Informed About Local:www.TheWakullaNews.com1-877-401-6408 Please accept my new 3 month subscription at the price of $6* Savings apply to new local delivery area subscriptions only.All information must be completed to receive this special offer *YES!

Page 8A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 3, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comSpecial to The NewsAir Force Airman First Class Travis Harrell recently completed 18 months of intensive physical and academic training and is now a member of the elite Air Force Special Operations Weather Team (SOWT). As a member of SOWT, Travis has earned the right to wear the coveted gray beret and the SOWT crest. The SOWT selection process is extremely competitive with a high rate of attrition. Those who complete the training are among a very select group within the Air Force and are among the most highly trained personnel in the U.S. military. They are tactical observers/forecasters with ground combat capabilities. Their mission is to deploy into combat and non-permissive environments to collect and interpret meteorological data and provide air and ground force commanders with vital, timely, accurate intelligence. SOWTs deploy in advance of, and work primarily with, U.S. Army Rangers, Army Special Forces, Navy Seals, and Marine Force-Recon units in support of direct action, counterterrorism, foreign internal defense, humanitarian assistance, special reconnaissance, capture/creation of air elds, and combat search and rescue. Travis will be assigned to the Air Force Special Operations Command at Hurlbert Field, Florida. Travis grew up in Wakulla County and attended Shadeville Elementary, Riversprings Middle School, and Wakulla High School. He is the son of Theresa Harrell and G.W. and Hope Harrell, and is the brother of Kelsey Harrell. Travis is married to Olivia Johnson of Lakeland and they have a one year old daughter named Aurora.happenings in our community CommunityEmily Morgan Pierce and Joshua Edward Bridges would like to announce their upcoming wedding that will take place on Saturday August 9, 2014 in Tallahassee at Lake Iamonia Lodge.

This is the primary annual fundraiser for the cross country teams. This year found almost 100 runners toeing the line in sunny but warm conditions, ready to challenge the mostly off-road course that ran from the park picnic area to Cherokee Sink and back. In the womens race, the outcome was never really in doubt. Recent graduate and FSU signee Madison Harris was granted permission by FSU Coach Karen Harvey to run the race, but to hold her pace to no more than 6:30 per mile and that is exactly what Harris did. Even with that restriction, she took the lead almost immediately and never looked back. She went on to capture the overall female title, for the second year in a row, in the excellent time of 20:12 on a course that is at least a minute slower than a normal road 5K and nished in 4th place overall. Renee Cox, one of Tallahassees top female runners, also ran an excellent race, nishing as the second female and 6th overall in a time of 21:06. The mens contest was not settled so easily as three runners, Reikan Lin, WHS runner Lane Williams and Joel Piotrowski fought it out the whole way. Lin and Williams were able to open a gap on Piotrowski in the nal mile and then it was a two-man contest. Over the last few hundred meters, Lin was able to open a small gap on Williams, who made a valiant attempt to close that gap in the last tenth of a mile, but Lin held on to win in 19:22 to Williams 19:27. Piotrowski nished in third place overall in 19:41. Other winners included: Male Mini-masters (9 and younger): Dylan Davis (27:50). Female Mini-masters (9 and younger): Layla Thompson (24:34). Male Masters: Joel Piotrowski (19:41). Female Masters: Paula ONeill (23:39). Male Grandmaster: David Anderson (23:35). Female Grandmaster: Francee Laywell (25:53). Male Senior Grandmaster: Rob Williams (27:31). The overall winners in the 1 Mile Fun Run were female, Nicole Kelly, and male, Asher Bryner. The annual race is our primary fundraiser and, therefore, very important to our program, said Coach Paul Hoover. Dr. Michael Atkinson and Beth Piotrowski are co-race directors and really do a great job with this event. Every aspect is top notch. They put on a quality event. I have run road races for 35 years and I havent seen any other event that gets the level of support we do from our parents and athletes. I want all of them to know how much their help means to us and how appreciative we really are, said Hoover. The Wakulla 14u All Star team took home the championship trophy at the Drafted All Star League World Series in Pensacola, on Sunday, June 29, playing four consecutive games that day to secure the series win. The team scored 62 runs in eight games, batted .328, and the pitching staff only allowed 13 earned runs for 2.22 ERA for the four-day tournament. Wakulla had wins over Gulf Breeze 8-0, Perdido 5-1, Ft. Walton Beach 9-1, NEP 9-1, and undefeated Pace twice with a 9-6 and 7-2 victories. The Wakulla team is coached by Keith Stalvey, Buddy Montague, and Jordan Montague.

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 3, 2014 Page 11AFrom the Front Page JURY BEGINS DELIBERATIONS FRIDAY, 1 P.M. After hearing closing arguments from the state and defense, the jury went out a little before 1 p.m. to begin its deliberations on whether to recommend the death penalty for Andrew Wilson. Assistant State Attorney Eddie Evans argued that aggravators presented by the state outweighed the mitigators presented by the defense. Evans contended the crime was heinous, atrocious and cruel one factor the jury can consider in recommending death as well as being cold, calculated and premeditated. At one point in the states closing, as Evans recounted the details of Wilson stabbing John McKenzie, Gabrielle McKenzie became emotional and quickly left the courtroom. Her sobs in the hallway could be heard as the victim advocate and friends comforted her. Later, McKenzie returned to the courtroom to hear the defenses closing. Defense attorney Andy Thomas presented the closing for the defense, and sought to discredit much of the previous days rebuttal testimony from Dr. Greg Pritchard, who had testi ed that he believed Wilson did not suffer from bi-polar disorder because there was no evidence of mania. Thomas countered that one defense expert, a neuro-pyschologist, had testi ed there was a 50 percent chance that Wilson was bi-polar just based on the fact that his mother and father had been diagnosed and the odds of him suffering from it only went up as several other close family members also had that diagnosis. Life in prison without possibility of parole is death by prison, Thomas argued at one point. Later, he made the point that, since Wilson will never get out of prison, there was no need for more killing with the death penalty. Were safe. In Evans closing, he said Wilson told investigators and psychologists that he had a happy childhood dismissing the defenses testimony of his messedup family life with a father in prison, a mother who suffered sexual abuse from her father and turned to drugs. Wilson was adopted by John Wilson, who provided stability and whose life was an example for the boy. Contending there was no evidence or suggestion of Wilson being bi-polar until the murders, Evans contended Wilson created the situation and bore responsibility for it. He nished by again playing the 911 call in which Patrick Pittman tells the dispatcher hes been stabbed by Andy Wilson and Wilson returns and stabs him again, over and over, yelling profanities. Thomas countered in his closing that, The state says this terrible thing happened kill him, referring to the death penalty. CLOSE OF TESTIMONY THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 6 P.M. Testimony ended on Thursday, June 26, in the death penalty phase of the Andrew Wilson murder trial with a clinical psychologist testifying that he doesnt agree with the diagnosis that Wilson has any bi-polar disorder. It was expected that Wakulla Circuit Judge Charles Dodson would give the jury instructions for their deliberations on Friday morning, attorneys for the state and defense would give their closing arguments, and then the case will go to the jury. Dr. Greg Pritchard testi ed that he saw no indication of mania or manic episodes in Wilsons life. Rather, he said, Wilson t the pro le of a domestic violence abuser controlling, seeking to intimidate and threaten the woman in his life, whom he viewed as a possession, not a person. Pritchard contended that if Wilson was truly bipolar, there would have been episodes in other parts of his life work or social relationships in which he exhibited poor behavior. There was no none of that, he said. Instead, the only aspect of his life in which Wilson exhibited anger and control issues was directed at Gabrielle McKenzie. Jurors heard testimony from Loren Mason III, a friend and co-worker of Wilsons, who said Wilson was ne at work a nice guy, outgoing but who showed extreme possessiveness when he visited Wilson and McKenzies home. DEFENSE TESTIMONY THURSDAY Earlier in the day, jurors heard more about what might have caused Andrew Wilson to murder Patrick Diddy Pittman and John McKenzie, and attempt to kill Gabrielle McKenzie, as the penalty phase for the crimes moved forward. On Wednesday and Thursday, friends of Wilson and Pittman, and Wilsons father, testi ed about their friend and son who now faces the death penalty. Mental health professionals and experts testi ed also. Several family members testi ed Wilsons biological father was a cruel and violent drug addict, and is currently in a prison in Georgia. John Wilson, the adoptive father of Andrew Wilson and his twin sister Amy, was emotional on the stand. He said Andrew Wilson was ecstatic about becoming a father, but became distraught when he lost access to his son. When Wilson called home after committing the murders, John Wilson said hed never heard his son sound like that. It sounded like he was talking with his teeth gritted, John Wilson said. Chalmer Mahone was reported to have previously said, My best friend murdered my best friend referring to Wilson and Pittman. The defense played a police tape of Mahones questioning at noon later in day of the murders. He said, Andy was one of my really good friends, one of the normalest kids. Mahone said Wilson was distressed over losing contact with his son, but Mahone said he told him to play it out with the courts. But the night of the attack, Mahone said Wilson seemed to be in a perfect state of mind after a visit with family in Columbus, Ga. Then he woke up to a phone call about the murders in the morning. Diddy didnt deserve this, Mahone said on the tape, crying. Erin Fincher, one of Wilsons close female friends, cried talking about Wilsons big heart, though she observed that everything was getting to him before the murders. He just wasnt Andy, Fincher said. Wilsons former supervisor at Bensons HVAC, George Dunn, said he hired him because Wilson exhibited a good attitude. While employed, Wilson received excellent evaluations and kudos from coworkers. Dunn said when Wilson began to openly express his pain over the waning relationship with McKenzie, coworkers eventually distanced themselves from him. He said Wilson brought his personal life to work, was often on the phone and asking to leave early. Dunn said one worker wanted Wilson red, and another suggested a psychological evaluation. Wilson hired local attorney Richard Reno to le the petition against McKenzies injunction in February 2011. Reno said Wilson wanted 50/50 custody of his son, who was about to turn 1. Reno said Wilson was the most extraordinary client he ever had. Reno said Wilson made contact with him, either by phone or in person, almost every day in the six weeks before the attack. Reno said he had the same kind of conversation over and over with Wilson, trying to assure him that a judge would not keep him away from his child in most circumstances. The last time he saw Wilson in the days before the murders, Reno said Wilson was incredibly distraught, and sobbed uncontrollably the day after his sons birthday because the petition was denied and Wilson was not permitted contact. He said, There is only one rst birthday, Reno said. On March 29, they had a phone conversation in which Reno said Wilson sounded resigned to the situation, and shared that he planned to hang out with friends to drink and play cards. Assistant State District Attorney Eddie Evans asked if Reno believed there was any chance of potential violence detected in Wilson. Absolutely not, Reno said. No sign, no statement, indicating he could be violent.a Dr. Michael Herkov, neuropsychologist, said medical records show that both Wilsons parents were diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, which means there is a 50 to 70 percent chance that Wilson would have it too. He said Wilson was diagnosed with unspeci ed bi-polar disorder. Mental illness is not a cut and dry area, Herkov said. He said that the Adderall (prescription amphetamine) that Wilson took the night of the murders was the match that set him a ame. It explains the why of that night, Herkov said, adding that physicians do not prescribe the stimulant to bi-polar patients because of the possible induction of a mixed manic episode. Herkov said it was clear that Wilson knew what he was doing the night of the murders, but he was substantially impaired. I hate to use the term perfect storm, because it was much worse than a storm. Herkov said. It was a combination of so many factors. Barbara Hanks, who is a mental health counselor at the jail, said, Hes afraid people saw his charges, and not him as a person, Hanks said. She added that Wilson once commented on all the violence in the news lately. He said, I was one of those people, Hanks recalled from a conversation with Wilson. I know the impact Ive had on their families, and I pray for their families. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netAfter taking public comments into consideration, the Charter Review Commission made nal decisions on three charter amendments that will be listed on the ballot in the Nov. 4 general election. The volunteer group narrowed the choices down at the June 26 meeting, and also crafted the ballot language for the amendments going forward. Part of the reason for dropping ve amendments was to prevent voters from feeling overwhelmed at the polls, which was a concern voiced at the public hearings. The amendment proposal about the recall of elected of cials was deleted altogether since Florida law already addresses this issue. The CRC will present the final amendments to the Board of County Commissioners at July 14 meeting. CRC Chairman Chris Russell said the amendments ballot language is subject to change after legal review by an attorney, and the group will meet again for revisions if necessary. Citizen Dr. Andrea Carter attended the meeting and brought forth concerns, and also praised the commission for their hard work. I think the public is looking to you for your best judgment, Carter said. Youre really our representatives in this task. I want to commend you on the ne job youve done leading this group. At the start of the meeting, County Administrator David Edwards said even though amendments would be dropped, its amazing you guys have nine things to talk about tonight. That shows the intelligence of this group. My advice is to pick out what you really want. You dont have to eat it all in one bite. Other charter amendments were dropped, and will not appear on the ballot this coming election. Those include the two amendments outlining the operations and attorney requirements of the CRC. A proposal for single member districts for county commissioners was also dropped after a lot of discussion. The proposal included keeping five districts, however, the voters in each district would vote for their own BOCC representative verses the positions being at-large (voted on by the whole county). Because of little support at the public hearings, the possibility of a fractured board, and the limits the proposal puts on voters, the group voted to drop it, 4-9. Carter said she hoped the commission would not recommend single member districts because they diminish citizens control over government; discourage voter turnout; reduces commissioner responsiveness and accountability; and gives more BOCC seat control to special interest groups. The group also dropped an amendment to the charter subsection regarding special elections/referendums that reads all referendums shall take place at a general election. Edwards said it sounds good upfront, But in government, we dont have a bunch of tools to work with, he said. A critical situation could happen, and it could put the county at a severe detriment if were not able to go to the people when we have to. Lastly, a proposed amendment was dropped that would add language that reads 60 percent of the electors votes shall be required to pass charter amendments and ordinances initiated by petition. CRC members and citizens asked that if amendments and ordinances need more than the vote of a simple majority, then the number of signatures required to put initiatives on the ballot (30 percent of county voters) should be lowered. The amendment was dropped with a 5-9 vote. PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO APPEAR ON THE BALLOT 1) All locally elected of ces shall be nonpartisan. Elections that have more than two candidates will take place in the primary with the individual obtaining 50 percent plus one vote being declared the winner. Should no candidates receive 50 percent plus one, the top two candidates shall go to the general election for nal decision. Should only two candidates qualify for an of ce, these candidates will have their election held during the general election. The group unanimously decided to push the amendment forward so voters can decide if the amendment is good for the county. 2) Mandatory residency requirements. At qualifying, a candidate must provide a declaration/oath stating the candidate has resided in the district they are seeking election in for a minimum of the previous six months. The candidate must also provide three out four other categories providing proof of residency. This was also passed unanimously. 3) The BOCC shall adopt, and adhere to, a debt policy that regulates the acceptance, issuance, and management of debt. The proposal passed 13-1. CRC Vice Chair John Shuff said the amendment proposal sets a higher bar. He said, We dont have to worry about the commissioners we have in there right now. They seem to be doing a pretty good job scally. But weve gotten into trouble before, and it might be a backstop at some point in he future.Charter group chooses three amendments for ballot Jury recommends life sentence for double murder defendant Of WakullaHeating & AirServing Wakulla & Franklin Counties850-926-5592Sales & Service All Makes & ModelsOwned & Operated by Gary Limbaugh Lic. # CAC1814304 Jason Rudd 850-241-6198 Mary Applegate 239-464-1732 David Rossetti 850-591-6161 850926-1011734 Shadeville Rd, Crawfordville FL, 32327our ome own ealtor Commercial Residential & Mobile HomesRepairs Sales Service All Makes and Models( 850 ) 926-3546LIC. #RA0062516 rr s Locally Owned and Operated Since 1991
Page 12A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 3, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comWhile attending the PPC competition a couple weeks ago at the Wakulla County Sheriffs Ofce range, I met some talented and interesting people with very different backgrounds. Theres one person in particular who has been sticking in my mind; especially as it is the week of July 4th. He uses his awe-inspiring talent to help us remember the 5 branches of military service which keep our country free. Michael Jernigan served in the Navy as a mineman and moved on in his career to be a director of planning and lobbyist for a Naples Community Hospital. Now, in retirement, he says hes a sculptor. A numbers man deciding in beyond-middle age that hes a sculptor? Michael hands me a postcard. Its titled Honoring the Troops and has a photo of United States Coast Guard Chief Bill Carl. Beside him is an unmistakable likeness of Chief Carl in bronze. Beneath is a photo of Michael sculpting Terri Skene of the United States Army. Youd recognize her immediately from her clay image. Michael is in the midst of a project where he is creating likenesses of 21 men and women from the Coast Guard, Marines, Army, Navy and Air Force. He sculpts in clay and the clay is then cast in bronze. Beginning in 2017, hell have a showing of these sculptures in over 10 locations in the United States to draw attention to those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then he will give the sculptures to the servicemen as a gift from a grateful nation through the donations which come in to support the project. How did this numbers person ever decide to become a sculptor? January 25 of 1990 was Michaels fathers, Theodores, 69th birthday. He had an aneurysm that could not be corrected. Michael decided he would make a very special gift to show his love and respect. He took many photos of his dad. Then he read Bruno Luchessis book: Modelling the Head in Clay. In a way, this project ended up being his fathers parting gift to Michael. Michael found he could take dirt and turn it into sculpture. In 2007, anti-military sentiment was running high. Michaels two brothers, his father and his grandfather all served in the military. Michaels wife, Linda, had a father who was a colonel in the Army. One day, Michael wrote in his journal that he wanted to go to Iraq and sculpt the troops. But he didnt go just to visit and sculpt. The then beyond-middle-age Michael spent a year and a half pushing his body into shape for tness to be embedded with the troops. In Afghanistan and Iraq, he rode in a MRAPa mine resistant ambush protected vehicle. This vehicle had a long mechanical arm designed to scoop the dirt to nd bombs. While on location, he had sittings with 19 of the subjects and took measurements, and over a hundreds of photographs of each subject. And he lived through it to come home and nish his work. I cant get Michaels story out of my mind. Michael risked his own life to make clear how much he honors and respects the men and women who serve our country. To learn more about this incredible talent and Honoring the Troops, you can nd both on www.honoringthetroops.com.

Your sex life and erection can now surviveDIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 800-777-1922 I guess all the rain and freshwater we had dumping into Apalachee Bay kept the scallops away from St Marks again for another year. Every report from that way says youre wasting your time over there. There are some at Lanark Village but I understand you really have to work for them. St. Joe Bay, Keaton Beach and Steinhatchee are again the places to go. We may not have any scallops, but fishing continues to be very good. There is more bait around right now than I have seen all year and plenty of big Spanish following them. Mike Falk Jr. said one some of his customers fished out at the Ochlockonee Shoals in 4 to 8 feet of water and had three limits of trout in a couple of hours. They were shing Gulps on the bottom. Mike Pearson from Tifton sent me a picture of a very nice catch of trout and Spanish from Dekle Beach. They were caught drifting pin sh on the ats. Capt. Kent over at AMS said they fished in 8 to 10 feet of water out around the government stake and caught their limit of trout. Dr. Jim ONeil went out last week and said he and his sons caught trout, Spanish, blues and flounder. They caught everything on live shrimp. Capt. David Fife has been catching plenty of trout, ounder and reds around Shell Point. He has been shing a white Gulp under a Cajun Thunder on the flats and catching plenty of trout. He shed in about 14 feet of water over around St. Marks on a big rock pile and had seven flounder, three trout and a bunch of big Spanish. He caught the Spanish drifting them under a cork and he said most were big. Some of the folks out of Spring Creek have been shing out around the stake line and catching plenty of trout. I shed four days last week and we caught a lot of trout on the ats using live shrimp under the Cajun Thunder. The best bite came on the falling tide in 3 to 4 feet of water near a deep channel. I did manage to finally catch some legal reds on one of my favorite spots but went back two other times and absolutely nothing. On Friday I shed with a doctor from Tallahassee and his son. We caught 11 trout, seven ounder and three Spanish. Every year I have family from Daytona Beach come over with the intention of scalloping. The last couple of years it has been shing. Last year the rain and winds kept us from doing a lot of shing but so far this year its been nice and calm but extremely hot. On Sunday we shed white Gulps on the bottom and caught trout, flounder, rock bass, blues and cobia. My niece Daina caught a 32 inch cobia and we had four smaller ones but saw some big sh but couldnt get them to bite. On Monday we went to the same rock pile near St. Marks and had some live shrimp. We floated them over the rocks under a cork and caught 12 Spanish and ve of them were over 5 pounds. We also caught some flounder and trout using a Gulp on the bottom. Friday is the 4th and there will be a lot of people on the water so be extremely careful. It.s also going to be very hot so take plenty of water. Sunday and Monday we only stayed out a couple of hours because it was so hot. Fishing is very good and as of Monday some folks still had shrimp. Maybe the scallops will make their way to St Marks but right now it doesnt look good. I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing 4th of July and whether on the water or on the road be careful. Good luck and good shing!

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 3, 2014 Page 13A This week we celebrate the 238th birthday of the United States. Many will be celebrating with picnics, cookouts and fun on the water. For those who choose to be out on the water, it is critical that you are prepared for navigating your return to shore. A holiday weekend when many are out on the water may not be a good rst time night navigation. Anyone who has been out at night knows everything looks different when the sun goes down. Visibility is at a minimum. It is critical to be familiar with the waterways, slow down, use a spotlight to get your bearings (spotting not constant) and have a GPS if possible. Before heading out, it is important to make sure your navigation lights are working properly. The lights you are required to have depends on the length of your boat. You can check on the requirements at www.navcen. uscg.gov. Packing plenty of water is also critical to prevent dehydration. By the time you feel thirsty, you are already beginning to become dehydrated. Being out in the sun, even if you are in the water, can cause you to become dehydrated quicker than you may expect. You are also more prone to heat stroke. Despite the heat, when night falls, it is more important than even to makes sure everyone is wearing a life jacket. If the unexpected does happen, it is more dif cult to locate a person in the water at night. A properly tting life jacket can make the difference between a rescue and a recovery. If you would like to learn more about safe boating and make sure you have everything you need aboard your boat, members of Flotilla 12 will be available for a free vessel safety check Saturday, July 5, beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the fort in St. Marks. 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. If youre interested in a free vessel examination, send an email to our Flotilla Staff Ofcer for Vessel Examinations, Steve Hults, at Steveh@uscgaux.net.

While we debate the merits of leasing Wakulla Springs State Park lands to TCC, a quiet and continuing invasion of archaeologist and paleontologists have been searching our rivers and off shore sites for more evidence about the nature of our lands earliest human inhabitants. Starting in 1959, Dick Ohmes and other divers began retrieving artifacts and Pleistocene animal bones with butcher marks from the lower reaches of the Aucilla River. A team led by archaeologist James Dunbar and paleontologist S. David Webb began a survey of Half-Mile Run in 1983. Navy diver Buddy Page, showed them a site where he had found elephant bones. A 20-inch-deep test pit yielded elephant bones, bone tools and chips from tool making. Radiocarbon dating of organic material from the pit yielded dates from 13,000 to 11,700 years Before Present. The owners of the land surrounding Half-Mile Run, the Ladson family, granted permission to the team to access and camp along Half-Mile Run. The Site was therefore named Page-Ladson. Excavation of the Page-Ladson site spanned the period from 1983 until 1997. The Page-Ladson prehistory site (8JE591) is a deep hole in the bed of the Aucilla River between Jefferson and Taylor counties in North Florida that has strati ed deposits of late Pleistocene and early Holocene animal bones and human artifacts. A group of eleven artifacts have an average age of 15,405 to 14,146 calendar years Before Present. Mike Faught, then a graduate student from the University of Arizona, was investigating early man occupation sites off shore in the 1990s. He collaborated with Dr. Joe Donaugh, geologist from Florida State University, who was conducting a survey of subsurface river beds in Apalachee Bay. They identi ed oxbow and other features of this under-sand Aucilla river bed, where land sites have previously found early man occupation sites. After Mike joined FSUs Anthropology Department, they set up eld schools digging these sites and nding evidence supporting their hypothesis. While I was the FSU Dive Of cer, I would visit the residence vessel Mike would anchor over his shallow site and bring them water, food and recycle students. In 1996, an Early Archaic Bolen habitation level was found at the Page-Ladson site. Hearths and various stone points, scrapers, adzes and gouges were found and identi ed, as well as antler points used to press akes off the stone tools. Three wooden upright in the ground stakes, and a cypress log that had been burned on the top side and hollowed out were found with radiocarbon dating of around 10,000 years BP. Archaeological excavation at the Page-Ladson site resumed in 2012 with the intention of validating the dating of human artifacts obtained in earlier work, and of nding the oldest dates for human remains and artifacts at the site. The excavation was funded by the Center for the Study of First Americans, and carried out by archaeologists from Texas A&M University and Indiana University of Pennsylvania and local volunteers. Today, the research continues at several sites both inland and off shore. They represent research teams from several universities both here in Florida and Georgia.

From Save the Manatee ClubBoaters can help reduce the risk of collisions with manatees and other wildlife by being extra vigilant when out on county waterways during the 4th of July long weekend. Slowing down in manatee habitat and observing all posted boat speed regulations can save manatee lives. Also, statistics on human/watercraft injuries and fatalities continue to concern Floridians and visitors who use and enjoy the states rivers and waterways. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recently reported that 62 people lost their lives in Florida in 2013 due to boating accidents, and there have been 11 deaths so far in 2014. Since boat traf c often doubles or triples on holiday weekends, dangerous conditions for the boating community as well as the slowmoving manatees can increase dramatically. Save the Manatee Club produces bright yellow, waterproof boating banners and provides them free to Florida boaters to help warn other boaters when manatees are sighted in the area. By carrying the Please Slow Manatees Below banner in motor boats, kayaks, and canoes, its much easier and more ef cient to alert other boaters when manatees are present. Remember, manatees must surface to breathe and prefer shallow waters. If you see a manatee when operating a powerboat, remain a safe distance away about 300 feet. If you want to observe the manatee, cut the motor, but dont drift over the manatee. Lori Dement from South Pasadena takes the Clubs boating banner along whenever she and her husband, Cyrus, are out on local waterways in their dinghy. I requested the banner so that I can do what I can to protect the manatees they are just so very precious, she said. The Club also produces and distributes free shoreline property signs and boating decals with the message to Slow Please, and both feature the FWCs hotline number for reporting manatees in distress. If you see an injured, dead, tagged or orphaned manatee, or a manatee who is being harassed, call the FWC at 1-888-404-FWCC (3922) or #FWC or *FWC on your cellular phone, use VHF Channel 16 on your marine radio, or send a text message to Tip@MyFWC.com. Responsible boating practices can save both human and manatee lives, says Dr. Katie Tripp, Director of Science and Conservation for Save the Manatee Club. This is especially crucial during busy holidays when more boaters are out on the water and the risks increase. Free boating banners, decals, waterproof manatee protection tips cards, or signs for Florida shoreline property owners can be obtained by contacting Save the Manatee Club via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by regular mail at 500 N. Maitland Ave., Maitland FL 32751, or by calling toll free at 1-800-432JOIN (5646).

www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 3, 2014 Page 15ABy NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netFor the past month, approximately 90 Wakulla County children have been bused or brought to the Wakulla One Stop Community Center for a summer camp program that provides meals, activities, entertainment and life-skills information for ages 5 to 14. Community Coordinator Jocelyn Hayes, who is serving as camp director, said the kids are divided into groups according to age, and young leaders volunteer to help organize activities. Hayes listed the dozens of activities and special speakers available to the children, from organizations including CHAT, the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce, Refuge House, Department of Health, Fire Department, karate and much more. Hayes said the kids are provided free breakfast and lunch through the countys summer feeding program. In fact, the whole program is free, catering to families who might not be able to afford camp. The camp ended Monday, and Hayes said it was successful being the rst summer camp hosted by the community center, funded through the Ounce of Prevention Grant. Sensei Ray Tyree volunteered to lead children in karate exercises and taught them some Japanese words too in the community center gym during the camp. Tyree said children picked up on basic martial arts knowledge punches, sidekicks, front kicks and blocks. Children started and ended each class by bowing, called the Rei bow, which is to honor the art of karate itself. Tyree said the exercises are meant to instill a quality of life. He said children learn how to separate aggression from expression; self esteem and discipline. Anything is possible, Tyree said. No matter your skill level. Children complained about the duck walk, an exercise that had the kids walking very low to the ground. Tyree said it is dif cult, but it builds physical and mental strength. The children ran courses that included the duck walk, punching, kicking, hopping, running and blocking. They worked up a sweat, but were all smiles. Its been a great thing, Tyree said. Ive loved every minute of it. Im getting paid with a whole lot of love. Donna Branch, with the Department of Health, led children in an abstinence program for 12 days during the camp. The theme of the lessons was Choosing the best way. On Monday, children had an opportunity to act out ways to diffuse situations where they might struggle with a choice. Branch said children also learned about healthy and unhealthy relationships, risks in sexuality, and dating boundaries. Branch said one young male student said the rst day that he would not get anything from her program. But he said today that he was glad I was there the whole 12 days, Branch said. It gives me chills.Community Center camp serves local kids PHOTOS BY NICOLE ZEMATop left photo: Leigh Key, volunteer and Wakulla County Coalition for Youth member, runs kicking drills with Connor Nazworth, 7.

Page 16A THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 3, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comSummer nights in Wakulla County are a noisy, raucous occurrence, especially in the untamed regions. The decibel level is well above 100 as the residents engage in conversations and social activity at an earsplitting volume. Frogs of all sizes and octaves, locusts, and other insects loudly stake out their territory, seek mates, and proclaim their existence as the sun sets in the west. None in the nightly chorus is muted or reserved in their declarations. A select group of night birds add to the cacophony with unique solos intended to stand out from the pulsating background of buzzing, clicking, croaking and peeping. Most distinctive among these nocturnal performers is the barred owl, Strix varia. This native owl is also known as a hoot owl and populates the countys woods and suburban areas. It is one of about 220 species in the order Strigiformes worldwide which occupy every continent except Antarctica. Owls are divided into two families, the true owls (Strigidae) and barn owls (Tytonidae). Both occupy Wakulla County, but the true owls are most common. These include the screech owl, great horned owl along with the barred owl. The barred owl populates most of the United States and Canada, but is quite common in the southeastern U.S. It is close in appearance to the spotted owl of the Paci c northwest, which has spots rather than streaks down the underside of the body. Sometimes the barred owl is misidenti ed as the great horned owl, both commonly being encountered at night in eeting moments. While both are larger owls, the great horned owl has a different body shape and differing features. Barred owl adults may stand over two feet tall with a wingspan reach of over four feet. With feathers designed for silent ight, it can ash suddenly and without warning from the inky recesses of night. Despite the large appearance, the mature birds weight one to two and a half pounds. The pale face with dark rings around the piercing brown eyes has a spectral appearance, especially when unexpectedly encountered in the dark. Barred owls are carnivore and use two specific tactics for hunting. They still hunt from a lofty perch and cruise hoping to ambush startled prey. These opportunist predators will patiently watch for an unsuspecting animal to break cover, and then hurtle silently down to impale it with talons. The meal-to-be can be taken to a nest with chicks for sharing or just consumed on a high limb. With their sharp vision and excellent night sight, these owls will sometimes cruise below tree canopies seeking to surprise a small animal foraging at night. Either technique usually results in a meal for the barred owls. Human encounters with these owls are usually limited to hearing the distinctive call. It is most commonly heard at night, but barred owls are active at dawn and dusk. The usual call is a series of eight accented hoots. The ending has a downward pitched oo-aw. Sometimes several barred owls will assemble and hoot together. The effort quickly deteriorates into a riotous contest where the calls resemble chimpanzees each attempting to outdo the other. The barred owls add to the reputation and character of Wakulla Countys wild night life. To learn more about owls in Wakulla County, visit the UF/ IFAS Wakulla County website at http:// wakulla.ifas.ufl.edu or call 850-926-3931. Les Harrison is the Wakulla County Extension Director.

Section B THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 3, 2014 Taking Care of Business Taking Care of BusinessBusiness News from Business News from By PETRA SHUFFOf the ChamberUsually when one says when it rains, it pours it is meant in a bad way but we had a pouring of a pleasant kind. Reservations were pouring in for our networking luncheon at Wakulla Springs Lodge, with a record attendance of 80 guests. General Manager Jeff True was eager to host our luncheon, and impress our members. It is easy to shine when you have a chef like Jodi Perez, who put together a wonderful menu of her most popular catering items. Wakulla Springs Lodge is a beautiful setting for events, and we can tell you rst hand that the catering service is rst class. We feasted on spring mix salad, chicken and waf e sliders, ultimate mac & cheese, mini pulled pork biscuits, shrimp and grits, Hawaiian cocktail meatballs, grilled chicken and steak skewers, mini shepherds pie bites, sausage stuffed mushrooms, and to top it off, an array of desserts, of which the lemon cookie was my favorite. Jeff shared that the lease for hotel concession is in negotiation with a new company, and a smooth transition without any changes will take place. The current staff has worked very hard to rebuild the image of Wakulla Springs Lodge, and we hope they will be rewarded by staying on as employees. Sgt. Billy Jones shared that the Wakulla County Sheriffs Of ce regularly updates their Master Business Index to have correct information for businesses, owners, emergency contacts etc, to quickly get in touch in case of an alarm notication, break-in, or any other emergency. If you have not updated your information recently, or have not shared your information with the sheriffs of ce, please call Karen Kemp at 745-7192. Our spotlight was on Shepard Accounting & Tax Service, presented by Jessica Revell. The rm consists of two CPAs, Lorra Phillips and Jessica Revell, an E.A., Mitzi Rye, and Secretary Cheryl Campbell. Years ago, Lorra received an Accounting Degree at FSU. Lorra gained Tax & Bookkeeping experience with Brent Thurmond CPA rm, auditing experience with the State Auditor General, assisted our Clerk of the Court in audit preparations, and received her CPA license in 1998, and opened up Shepard Accounting. Her goal was, and still is, to help our local residents with taxes and nancial business knowledge at a price they could afford in a small town.Turn to Page 8B By KEVIN VAUGHNChamber PresidentI wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to attend the two workshops held June 17. Attendance was excellent and your Chamber was well represented as usual due to our great team of volunteers. The Department of Transportation workshop held at Crawfordville United Methodist Church allowed public input for Florida Department of Transportation representatives on the proposed Crawfordville Highway expansion. There was discussion on everything from Liveable Communities techniques to proposed route alternatives for creating the much-needed four lane highway. The second workshop was at Woodville Library. You may recall your Chamber Board voted unanimously at its May meeting to support Wakulla Environmental Institutes plan to lease state-owned land to provide education, conservation and recreation opportunities in Wakulla County in an environmentally sensitive way. We submitted a letter of support and had several representatives speak in support of the proposal at the meeting. This was the rst public hearing by Florida Parks Service related to the project and they will announce their decision in the near future. On June 24, I attended the historic launch of a new organization called the Institute for Nonpro t Innovation and Excellence. Led by our own Kim Moore in her role as VP for Workforce Development at TCC, this new organization will be dedicated to enhancing the capacity and leadership of nonpro t organizations through advocacy, education and engagement. For more information check out their website at www.theinstitutefornonprofits. org. Congratulations to Kim for another job well done! Dont forget to keep those new members coming.

Tell us about your business: We started our business in 2006, after Mark worked for Ford for 20 years. After that many years of working in Tallahassee, he decided that he wanted to be closer to home, get to know all the people down here, and join the community he loved. So Callaway Auto was born. Howard and Linda Hobby offered us the opportunity to operate at the old Hobby Brothers Shop, and that has been the best thing we could have done for our business. We have a great location, great landlords, and have been made to feel like part of their family, as they are surely part of ours. What services, products do you offer? We are a full service shop, and we work on all makes and models. Each member of our team has their own specialties, and they each have speci c types they like best. All our work is done as a group effort as each member is equal with their own strengths. What sets your business apart from the competition? We are completely family owned and operated, and each person in our shop is family. We try very hard to treat all our customers as though they were members of that family and welcome each one to join us. Our customers are some of the greatest people, and we feel privileged to have them. What should a customer expect when they visit your business? When customers come to see us, they are welcomed with open arms, they can join us for a cup of coffee if they like, or have a chat with the guys in the shop. We have an open shop policy, and will show our customers what we see, explain it to them, so they have an understanding of what is wrong with their vehicle, and a working knowledge of the repair needed. How long have you been a Chamber member? Two years. Why did you join the Chamber? To be able to get to know a lot of the other business owners in the county. What Chamber services have you taken advantage of and/or will take advantage of in the near future? We like to go to any trainings or classes that the Chamber offers. Whats your reason Wakulla residents should Shop Local? This is our community. We want to see it thrive and prosper. The best way to do that is to keep our money in the county as much as possible If anyone is interested in your products/services, how do they contact you? Our phone number is (850) 926-1039.
