Commissioner Howard Kessler presented an award for heroism to Suggs at the July 14 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners. Suggs proud family surrounded him at the presentation. Thats my son! his mother could be heard saying, when Kessler described Suggs heroic efforts. Suggs said he observed the re truck getting too hot as the Pigotts fire became more involved. Hard plastic had started melting, Suggs said. So I got inside of it, took it out of pump gear, and backed it up away from the structure. He sustained firstdegree burns on his right hand while grabbing the door to climb into the re truck. It was in the hot zone, Suggs said, who declined a trip to the hospital for the burn. To me, its nothing heroic. Id do this again if I had to. I just saw a piece of equipment that needed to be saved. No sense in letting it be a total loss maybe we could repair it and get it back in line. Kessler said, You always think, What would I do in certain conditions. This man is a hero. He was the fellow that responded, without care for his own regard, but for the county and its equipment, and its safety. There were a lot of people on that scene, but Marty Suggs was the person who came forward. Suggs, a retiree, has worked in some capacity as a re ghter for more than 30 years. He was raised in Carrabelle, and served as a paid fireghter in Bay County for 25 years, and recently moved to Panacea be close to his folks. Suggs received recognition from Wakulla County Fire Rescue, but Kessler said he deserves public recognition too. He was presented with a plaque that read: Presented to Marty Suggs for his heroic actions as a volunteer firefighter, resulting in a signi cant benefit to WCFR and many thankful citizens of Wakulla County. Fire Chief Michael Morgan said insurance covered damage to the truck, minus its $250 deductible. Martys experience gave him the extra edge to be able to size up the situation and act very quickly, Morgan said. He is very new to WCFR after retiring from a career department. He has already become a valuable asset for our department in several areas including his willingness and availability to respond to calls. By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net Harold Ross wants to see the face and shake the hand of every veteran in the county all 3,400 of them even if it takes a long time. But time is on Ross side, as he was recently hired to serve Wakulla County as the new 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, at the County Administration building on US 319. Visitors can use the door on the northern side of the building to access Ross of ce, where he says his door is open to anyone. Ross and his wife Atari both graduated in May from the University of South Carolina with bachelors degrees in sociology with a concentration in human services. He retired from the US Army in 2011 after 20 years of service and three tours overseas. Ross was in the right place at the right time during a trip to visit Ataris family in Crawfordville, when he found out the county was in need of a permanent veterans service of cer. So they moved from Elko, South Carolina, and are currently pursuing their graduate degrees from FSU and Keiser. Ross said he enlisted in the US Army in 1992, while he was a high school student. He went overseas as part of Enduring Iraqi Freedom twice, and one tour under Southern Watch. Turn to Page 12 By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.net With only one meeting this month, the Board of County Commissioners had a lot to discuss on July 14 at the meeting that stretched into the 10 oclock hour. Wakulla Environmental Institute, the Aquatic Science Association grant, charter amendments, rates on solid waste and the county attorneys contract were all topics that garnered discussion. LETTER OF SUPPORT FOR WEI LAND LEASE Commissioner Jerry Moore presented an agenda item to write a letter of support for Tallahassee Community College Wakulla Environmental Institutes plans to lease 1,850 acres of Wakulla Springs State Park for land and park management education. While four commissioners voted to send the letter, many citizen comments challenged the endorsement. Citizen Victor Lambou said without detailed plans, the endorsement is premature. Dana Peck said she used to roam the halls as TCC faculty for more than 15 years. There are not enough to superlatives to say about their academic offerings for students who come there, especially for the rst two years, Peck said. And while WEIs offerings are great, the land lease is not, she said. Peck went on to explain some of the institutes shortcomings. Commissioner Howard Kessler said, Before we start supporting a plan that will take one-third of Wakulla Springs land away for 50 years, we should be sure we have protections in place for Wakulla Springs. Kessler added that he would like to see WEI have success at the campus before any land deal moves forward. Commissioner Ralph Thomas pointed out that WEI is a state institution with tremendous resources, and has made a commitment to be good stewards of the land, like connecting Wakulla Springs to the county sewer system. I was surprised to learn a few weeks ago that Wakulla Springs has access to sewer, yet they still have buildings today on septic tanks, Thomas said. Moore said there is currently a USDA grant in the works that will run sewer up Spring Creek Highway, which WEI will tie into before they build anything. Sandy Cook, former park manager at Wakulla Spring State Park, called The Wakulla News to say there is a misconception about the two septic tanks on the property. Cook said the ranger station has a single toilet on a high performance septic system. And the other is at ranger residence trailer on Bloxham Cutoff four miles from the sewer line. So when they say, there are septic tanks still there, that is true, Cook said. However, because of the long distance and low amount of waste generated a force line will not work. There is just not enough ef uent to keep the line clear. TCC has agreed to connect the two facilities to county sewer. The estimated cost is about $100,000. Thomas said the board is not trying to get into the nuts and bolts and get into every little detail. This is just a letter of support, Thomas said. They still have to make it viable. All were asking is to move forward with the idea of supporting this. The board agreed to send a letter of support, with Kessler opposing.

The workers supervisor, Josh, said they were communicating over the radio when the worker complained that his hand was cramping. Then his speech became slurred and incoherent. One minute he was ne, and the next minute he was talking crazy on the radio, Josh said. Im pretty sure its a heat stroke. When he called me by the wrong name, I knew something was wrong. Josh, trained to recognize signs of heat stroke and exhaustion, said he immediately called 911. Hes cramped up so bad, that he cant climb, Josh said, looking upward as rescue personnel climbed to reach the worker. Wakulla County Fire Chief Mike Morgan said locally, there is not the equipment or the manpower to rescue the immobile worker, who was conscious and communicating on the radio, but stationary near the top of the tower.

Panacea resident Steve Cushman, who is a District 4 County Commission candidate, chairs the conservation group, whose mission is to acquire land through acquisition and stewardship programs to be held in public trust for conservation and protection of natural resources for extensive scienti c research and exploration. Cushman and Irons founded the ASA in 2008 after years of diving together in Texas. Having its roots in cave and cave diving, the ASA expanded to Florida in 2012, with an of ce in Crawfordville. At the June 2 board meeting, the ASA requested a letter supporting its grant proposal to the Gulf Environmental Bene t Fund for the oyster reef restoration project. The board requested that a workshop be scheduled for further discussion of the ASA and its grant proposal. At the regular meeting of the Board of County Commissioners following the workshop, several citizens and acquaintances of Cushman stood to make comments about the candidate, pointing out discrepancies in his record and taking issue with his character. Cushman was not present for the comments during the initial public comment segment, but came to fourhour meeting later to provide comments himself. Michelle Bull said because Cushman owns so many companies within Wakulla County, the possibility of the board supporting the ASAs oyster reef restoration grant proposal would be a con ict of interest. There are eight companies or associations he is af liated with, Bull said. I assume as a businessman, and an owner of Wakulla Oyster Farms and Wakulla Seafood Processing, that he would participate in future harvesting of these oysters, so I assume this would be a money-making venture for him to get a grant from the federal government. I feel like he might be taking advantage of these positions. Larry Roberts, a former military pilot, said he felt like he and Cushman had something in common when he read about Cushmans military pilot experience in his political announcement in The Wakulla News in March. I asked him about his status as a military pilot, and he said he was an F16 instructor pilot for ve years in Las Vegas, Roberts said. I have a copy of Mr. Cushmans Facebook page, stating that he is an Air Force retired pilot. He is not. Bottom line, the man does not speak the truth, and he has no business being on this commission. Gail Hickman said she is relieved there will be no letter of support for the ASA project. Mr. Cushman, as chair of ASA, is fraught with problems of integrity, Hickman said. ASA earlier this year itself stated it does not want to be involved in this program nor do they want to be involved in politics yet, he is. Until these problems are ironed out, it is a foolish mistake for any endorsement to be made by this county. At the meeting, Cushman said he had recently spoken with someone in Tallahassee who was familiar with Wakulla County politics. Ive got to tell you, Im a little bit ashamed of what she said about Wakulla County, and the reputation we have about the way things go down here, Cushman said. Its no wonder we cant get things off the ground. Cushman declined opportunities to respond to the comments on the record, but said he will speak on the accusations at a later date. CHARTER AMENDMENTS The board voted to move three amendments forward for the Nov. 4 referendum. The Charter Review Commissions amendments for nonpartisan elections, candidate residency requirements, and a fund balance/ debt policy will appear on the ballot. The group met again on Monday to take the county attorneys review of the amendments under consideration, and tweak the ballot language. CRC Chairman Chris Russell said nonpartisan elections give people more say in their representation. You can never take politics out of everything, Russell said. But its a great step forward. Youre sending a message that your of ce is the of ce for the people. Citizen Larry Roberts said if nonpartisan elections work for the school board, then they will work for the Board of County Commissioners too. Kessler said he agrees with the item, and people should have the nal say on Nov. 4, but he wishes the amendment would be held for the big election cycle coming up in two years, so more folks would turn out to vote on it. For that reason, he voted against it. RATE FOR SOLID WASTE An agenda item was brought forth to request board approval of the preliminary rate resolution for solid waste services. Both the county and WastePro have been able to keep their costs low and absorb any increases since 2011. WastePro is requesting its annual index this year, which asks for a slight rate increase from $196 per dwelling unit to $199 per dwelling unit. Commissioner Ralph Thomas said the board is not obligated to increase the tax automatically. Im going to oppose it, Thomas said. I made a commitment that I wouldnt raise taxes, even though its only a few dollars, Ill stick with what I told the people when they elected me. Even though action regarding the rate was taken at the meeting, it turns out that voting on the three-dollar increase was not mandatory, and the board can get out of it after all. The rate will stay at $196. COUNTY ATTORNEYS CONTRACT County Administrator David Edwards requested the board release a request for proposals (RFP) for county legal services, or extend the current contract. Commissioners said they have been happy with County Attorney Heather Encinosas work and rate. The board moved to extend her contract another two years, with Moore and Thomas opposing saying it makes more sense to shop around first. Commissioner Randy Merritt added on to the motion, indicating Encinosas retainer cover the rst 10 hours of work on a new item. Citizen and commission candidate Bill Anderson said he has no axe whether its Encinosaa rm, or another one, But its extremely painful as a citizen to sit out here and see yall bring forward an agenda item for an RFP to bid it, and at the last minute decide to extend the contract for two years, he said. Ive retained some of the biggest rms in the county. There is nothing wrong with the rm you have, but the procedure you just went through its really shameful. In other matters County Administrator David Edwards said new procedures are being worked out for the painting of the lion statue at Azalea Park, since an artist painted a Confederate ag on the local landmark over the Fourth of July weekend, which upset several residents and caused multiple complaints. Bruce Ashley and Ray Gray presented accomplishments and growth of the Wakulla One Stop Community Center and the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth. It is truly emerging as a community center that people around the state are beginning to call and ask, How did yall do that? It is emerging as a model that it was intended to emerge as. The future is exciting, Ashley said, inviting the public to come see for themselves. The group entered into the full-year contract for the Ounce of Prevention Fund to keep the ve primary programs going. Gray bragged on how many community members have been helped by area social and health services through the center. There are so many stories, he said. The commissioners lauded their efforts and thanked WCCY and community center staff for their hard work. A speed limit reduction was approved for Shadeville Highway and Cajer Posey Road intersection to increase safety. Fire protection services of $75 annually will not change this year.Board to support WEI land lease proposal
By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netIn the spirit of Little Free Libraries across the world, the concept of take a book, leave a book has been born in Ochlockonee Bay. Tim Jordan, owner and broker at Ochlockonee Bay Realty, had a small library constructed out of cypress wood and Plexiglas with a metal roof, which was placed in front of the business a few weeks ago. Jordan said with so many beach rental families, campers and literary locals, the Little Free Library is a resource for tourists and residents alike. Jordan said he read about the international phenomenon of Little Free Libraries in a pervious edition of American Profile the feature magazine insert in The Wakulla News that he found so inspiring that he decided to start one at the bay. We do rental management, so its a good place for both tourists and the local community to come get a book or leave a book, Jordan said. Its a book exchange basically. So many of us have books that were never going to read again. Right now there are about 100 books in the Little Free Library, many ction novels by writers like John Grisham, and some classics from literary masters like F. Scott Fitzgerald. Jordan said what the library is missing is childrens books. I would love to get some childrens books, Jordan said. We really need them. Thats why I would like to get the community involved, so it will be a wider variety of books. Jordan said even though the Little Free Library is new, folks have been coming by to browse and exchange. The Little Free Library in Ochlockonee Bay is a little bigger than most about 5 feet long with three shelves. Billy Mackie and Jamie Koenig constructed it. Jordan said he will probably put signage on the library eventually. The address of the Little Free Library at Ochlockonee Bay Realty is 146 Coastal Hwy. 98. www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 24, 2014 Page 3 PUBLIC NOTICESFor our readers convenience, The Wakulla News will provide this Public Notice Section in our A-section for all Public Notices not published in the Legal Notice section of the newspaper.

The state protections in place are completely satisfactory while the Wakulla ordinance is a lawsuit waiting to happen. I see no reason to jeopardize taxpayers money (including mine) because a group of people with questionable motives ood the commission meetings. The consistent message that I get from them is theyre opposed to building contractors and real estate agents. In the article in the Wakulla News of July 17, the only one who made any sense was Bob Danzey. I totally agree with him, the repeal of the ordinance doesnt say you can build in the wetlands. Neither the state or the feds would allow it. My position has never changed. With ordinance, its not a matter of IF a lawsuit is led, its a matter of WHEN a lawsuit is led. If the group who wants the ordinance will agree to pay all lawsuits with no expense to the rest of the taxpayers... go for it! F J Young Crawfordville ank you for repealing wetlands ordinanceEditor, The News:Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park nd the Board of County Commissioners actions lately irresponsible on two fronts: 1) The commissioner blatant disregard for the health of our wetlands. The irresponsible repeal of the countys stellar wetlands protection ordinance provides citizens an insight they surely could not anticipate. To wit: The Wetlands Protection Ordinance repeal was based on the peculiar notion that the Department of Environmental Protection has the ability and capability of doing a good job to protect our wetlands with its own rules and regulations. 2) Yet at the same meeting more truthchallenged comments TCC provided to the commissioners resulted in a letter of support from the Board of County Commissioners for TCCs idea to take onethird of Wakulla Springs State Park. The rationale: Department of Environmental Protection is not doing a good job. TCC can do this better by using conservation land as a college campus. Does this picture make sense? Madeleine H. Carr CrawfordvilleBoard is irresponsible with wetlandsEditor, The News: It is unfortunate that I nd myself writing again to clarify misleading or incorrect statements made about Wakulla Springs. It is somewhat understanding when citizens who are passionate about an issue make misleading comments since they may not have an opportunity to obtain all the facts. After all it is not unusual for citizens to be given the run around when requesting information about a public project. It is, however, inexcusable for people in elected or of cial capacities to make statements in a public venue that are false or misleading. The TCC-Wakulla Environmental Institute Executive Director Bob Ballard has stated in writing that the Cherokee Sink property had been mismanaged for decades and no restoration had been accomplished. This is just not true and since he was Deputy Secretary for DEP he should know. During the July 14 BOCC meeting Commissioner Thomas made comments regarding the sewage system at Wakulla Springs. He stated he was surprised to hear there were septic tanks at Wakulla Springs and that no one has found it important to get those facilities off of septic tanks. There is in fact two buildings that are not connected to the county sewer system; the ranger station and an employee owned ranger residence located two miles east on Hwy 267. All other facilities are connected to the county sewer system. In 1996 over a half million dollars was spent on upgrading the parks wastewater collection and treatment system. At the time the county was unable to provide sewer service to the park so a performance based septic system was installed. In 2002 the county extended the sewer line to Spring Creek Highway and the park spent $200,000 to install the nearly three mile force main needed to connect to county sewer. The desire was to connect all facilities however the ranger station and ranger residence could not be connected. Operationally, a four mile sewer line with the low amount of ef uent generated just wouldnt work. Subsequently, both of the septic tanks were upgraded to performance based systems at a cost $25,000. So the bottom line, Commissioner Thomas, is that someone has found it important to insure that Wakulla Springs has the best sewage treatment technology available and is leading by example. And Commissioner Merritt, I agree with your comment that it would be good to extend the sewer line to Camp Indian Springs. Sandy Cook Retired Park Manager Wakulla Springs State Park Editor, The News:As I sat in the county commissioners meeting Monday night (July 14) and watched a stream of people get up and speak to the commissioners against the repeal of the wetlands ordinance, I believe there was only one person who spoke in favor of the repeal. Although I really wanted to (thats what my mind kept telling me to Get Up! Let them know you support their decision to repeal the ordinance) but, Im just not comfortable in standing up in front of a crowd. So, I decided to write this letter. Most of the people who spoke against the repeal, have lived here I believe less than 30 years. There may have been a couple of them who have lived here longer (and I feel con dent Ill know for sure when I learn about it in next weeks paper in the rebuttal to this letter). But, I wondered where in the world are all the families that have lived here for generations. Maybe like me, they havent been involved in politics and dont want to be involved in politics. Maybe they too are not so fond of public speaking or maybe they feel it either isnt going to effect them or, the county elected of cials have everyones best interest at heart. A lot of us dont realize there are people here in our county that may not necessarily be doing what is best for us. Ive recently involved myself in the political world and nd it interesting and confusing. I know Commissioner Thomas has worked very hard (as Im sure all of them have) but Ralph Thomas is the reason Im interested at all. I asked him one day before his election as commissioner why in the world would he want to become a commissioner his answer paraphrased because someone has to do it. I praise him for his time and effort and the wonderful job he is doing. I would like to thank his family and all the families of our commissioners for allowing their husbands to give so much of their time. Commissioner Merritt stated during the meeting that the ordinance wasnt all wrong but the wrong outweighed the right. And Im not quoting him here, just paraphrasing. The Wakulla ordinance imposes a 75-foot buffer while the state requires a 25-foot buffer from wet lands in order to build. I dont think people realize wetlands arent identi ed as just the coastline or the beautiful marsh, were talking about a pond in your back yard or a creek-bed with water in it only when it rains hard. I think that Wakulla citizens are good stewards of our land and have been for generations. Please, if youre not involved or you dont understand ask questions, you need to be informed when it does come time to vote in November. And remember, it is not a question of whether or not someone is trying to take away your right to vote. That has never been the issue. A lady who sat next to me at the meeting had actually signed the petition for the Wakulla Wetlands Alliance (WWA) why you ask? Because they said it was about whether or not she wanted to give up her right to vote. She was approached in Leon County by the way. My husband and I were approached at the St. Marks Blue Crab Festival. When asked to sign as we walked by the lady holding her clipboard we said no and kept going. She said loudly dont you want to keep your right to vote and not allow just four people (referring to four commissioners) to vote on an issue for you. Of course I had to stop and question her as I knew a little about the issue but a lot of people out there do not. Please nd out what you are signing and why dont sign anything unless you are sure. People signing the petition have been misled so if you are one of those people call your Supervisor of Elections and your County Commissioners. At least, let them know you were not completely sure of what you signed and let them know how you were misled and why you were confused, and, please remember vote NO in November. Jan Harper-ColvinEditor, The News:The Republican primary will be held at your regular polling place, on Tuesday, August 26, 2014. Absentee ballots and early voting will commence, as in the past, about two weeks before the election. In Wakulla County, this election centers around two Republicans, Steve Fults and Jerry Moore. The winner of this primary will then run for District 4 in the General Election on November 4, against other candidates who have no party af liation. All Republicans must get out and vote. Dont be disappointed after the fact! There is much at stake here. Our ve commissioners control far more than the average citizen may realize. Those ve people make judgments on every issue that comes before them, including the review of every dollar spent by the County. They set our taxes, establish new rules and eliminate ordinances that have served the county well in the past. Their in uence through opinion and questions answered, is far reaching. In essense, they may actually form a group agenda (even though they are supposed to act independently) and this agenda is what makes that board so important. For approximately $30,000 per year salary and the bene t of health coverage, they affect your comfort zone as you work, play, and try to survive in what constitutes, everyday life, in this county. I ponder what is so important to me that I would be in uenced to vote for one or the other. I have clearly decided that it boils down to integrity. This simple but high powered word means: uprightness, virtue, honesty and soundness. However, the overwhelming response from both friends and strangers as they wonder what direction our community is taking, is the lack of integrity in our government. Many have pet peeves that seem to over-ride their thinking and they get hung up on that. Others are simply struggling with taxes and nances as they try to make ends meet. Whatever issue encompasses their concerns, all are disappointed in the integrity of their Commission. Steve Fults is a man of integrity. That is one of the things that made him standout for me. He has no agenda that I have seen. He has no land to sell, no argument to force and no pro t to make regarding any decision. He sits quietly at Commission meetings, listening. He looks at the person speaking and hears him. Not all our commissioners do that, one is always staring at his computer while citizens are speaking. Steve cares enough to take the time to investigate the issues. He talks to people in an enthusiastic and engaged way. He has good manners. I have heard him talk both sides of an issue and openly discuss the consequences of either. He has a passion for the right solution, which includes his motto, For the People. Steve and his wife Debbie, work together at his business in Panacea while continuing to serve the community. He is a First Responder who drops everything when emergency calls. Steve has integrity. And for all of this, I will be voting for him. Gail Hickman Wakulla County citizen Letters to the Editor The Wakulla News welcomes your letters.

Could it be that somewhere in my past, I peaked and did not realize it? If so, I wish I knew about it so at least I could have the consolation that I have peaked. This week I celebrate another birthday. This is a rut I am talking about. After all, I celebrate my birthday every year on the same day. The only reason I celebrate it on that day is because my mother said that was the day I was born. What if she lied about my birthday? After all, there is that issue with Santa Claus! I cannot prove one way or the other that I was born on a particular day because knowing what I do know now it is very easy to manipulate paperwork and birth certi cates. It might be old age, but I just do not trust anybody about anything these days. I do not even trust myself. In the early days of my life, my parents told a few things that have proven not exactly true. I would not say they were lying to me they were just protecting me from the gruesomeness of truth. I mentioned Santa Claus. The thing that irks me about Santa Claus is that now that I am older and have children and grandchildren I am supposed to be Santa Claus. Who in the world made up that rule? Then there is the whole issue about the tooth fairy. It took me a long time to gure out that the tooth fairy did not really exist. Several times I extracted teeth ahead of time in order to get some cash from the tooth fairy. I frequently questioned why the tooth fairy was so stingy with his giving until I gured out that the tooth fairy was none other than my father, known for his closed cash policy. Growing up in Pennsylvania one of the big factors had to do with Punxsutawney Phil. It took me a long time to gure out that that little rodent was not who my parents said he was. If he was who they said he was, he sure was not very good at predicting the future. A lot of things my parents told me turned out not to be true, so why should I put a lot of stock in believing that my birthday is the exact day I was born? According to them, I get to celebrate my birthday one day out of the year and a speci c day that I believe they picked out. Now what I want to know is, why can I pick my own birthday? After all, it is MY birthday! While I am on that subject, why cant I celebrate my birthday whenever I want to, why cant I celebrate my birthday every month? After all, nobody gets tired of eating birthday cake. Now that I am older (I am not quite sure how old I really am because I am not sure my parents were exactly forthcoming in telling me the year I was born) what am I supposed to do? Personally, I would like to establish a set of rules associated with my birthday. I do not care what other people do about their birthday, it is my birthday and I should be able to set the rules. I think the rst rule I would establish is, there should be no surprise birthday parties. If it is my birthday, I know when it is. If it is my birthday, I should be in charge of planning the party. After all, I know what I would like. Who in the world started putting birthday candles on a birthday cake. I have been to several birthday parties and watched the birthday boy blow out those candles. After seeing him blow out those candles, I had no desire to eat the cake subjected to his spit-laden breath. After all, germs and I are not amigos. Do not let this get around, but when there are candles on my birthday cake, I make sure my tongue is well lubricated before I start blowing out those candles. After all, I love to share. Another rule I would like to put in place has to do with birthday presents. It seems quite hypocritical for somebody to go out and buy a birthday present, wrap it up in fancy birthday wrapping paper and then bring it to me so that I can unwrap that paper to get to the birthday present. If I am going to have birthday presents I think I should be the one to buy those presents. Everybody who wants me to celebrate my birthday could slip me a ver and let me go out and buy what I really want. Nobody knows what I want better than I do. Finally, I think if it is my birthday and I am celebrating it, I should get to pick what year I am celebrating. Good old King Solomon had it right when he wrote, The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head (Proverbs 20:29). You are only young once but you can be old for a very long time. I am learning to live with it.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Each component has a unique and specific purpose. The obvious component of the carrying mechanism is the bar. The bar is the portion of the casket that the pallbearers will grab onto in order to lift and carry the casket from one point to another. Caskets consist of two different bar systems. The rst system is a stationary bar. A stationary bar is xed and does not move. The stationary bar is very strong and sturdy. In a stationary bar system, the wrists hold most of the weight of the casket and the grip may be painfully stressed, but I have never seen a stationary bar fail during a service. The second system is a swing bar. A swing bar moves away from the casket for carrying purposes and tucks back tightly to the casket for esthetics. It allows for more room between the casket and the pallbearers arm and grip. This extra room provides greater leverage, so the pallbearers do not have to lean outwardly from the casket. Standing straight keeps the weight of the casket evenly distributed throughout the pallbearers body. The swing bar is attached to an arm. The arm is the portion that allows for the movement of the bar outwardly from the casket. The arm is quite possibly the most important part of the entire bar system. If the arm is weak, the weight of the casket when carrying a decedent may be cause for alarm. The arm of the casket is attached to the ear of the casket. The ear is not only decorative; it serves to strengthen the area where the entire carrying system attaches to the casket. Without the ear, the ability of the system to carry the weight of the casket and the weight of the decedent would be greatly reduced. Caskets and casket components have size and weight restrictions. Some of us are fortunate enough to have light loved ones. A light loved one can utilize the least expensive caskets in the funeral homes selection room, internet shopping mall or the casket stores sales oor. If your loved one was a bit portly or extra tall; however, you might consider the advice of your funeral director as invaluable. Unlike a salesperson, a funeral director has had extensive education in funeral traditions, equipment, merchandise and law. At least armed with their knowledge and advice, you will be better able to make an informed decision when choosing a casket.Tracy Renee Lee is a funeral director, author, and freelance writer.

Page 10 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 24, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comoutdoor sports and shing reports OutdoorsWakulla Wildlife BY GEORGE WEYMOUTHTrip to the Yucatan features ora, faunaWe departed Newark, New Jersey (Patti and I) and arrived in the Yucatan state of Mexico about four hours later a non stop flight (which we certainly prefer!) Then at the Cancun Airport we went through immigration and customs, then got our luggage and exchanged our US currency for equal pesos (about 10 pesos to one US dollar). We had made it! Now who is going to be waiting for us? But as soon as we walked out of the terminal there was Jerrell and immediately Travis, who had brought the rental car we four were to use for the next six days. The rest of the group all from the Tallahassee area were already in the eld waiting for the four of us to join them as they observed northern Yucatans ora and fauna especially birds and butterflies, which is mostly what we wished to study on this trip. We had no desire to visit Cancun though, as the beaches there are lined with condos and hotels and packed with tourists. Nor did we (this time) visit Cozumel Island, famous for its spectacular reefs and diving opportunities. Normally Patti plans our trips, but this time we elected to join a tour already set up. We knew nearly everyone and all got along ne. But we were in for a shock. I had driven up to New Jersey to be with Patti on May 18th and had left the heat of our Southeastern states. About the time I was getting acclimated to the cooler temperatures of the Northeast, we slam dunked ourselves into the Yucatans high 90s temperatures and super high humidity. When we did join the group they all looked really stressed out from the high heat and humidity, plus the sun re ecting off the roads mostly of crushed coral rock so much cooked red flesh being marinated in sweat! I was half blinded by the roads reflections because I really wished to see some of Yucatans unique birds and did not wish to wear sunglasses while viewing through my binoculars. Until a few million years ago, this Mexican state was a massive coral reef, but now it protrudes as a region covered in coral rock rather at and in ways fairly boring. In Wakulla County and the Big Bend region in general we have (I feel) lots of boring pines miles of pines. Yet we do have spring fed rivers that are beautiful, as well as sinks in some areas where limestone is present. The Yucatan though has no rivers as their fresh water is all down in their aquifer and can only be observed in sink holes known as cenotes some which are spectacular! The Yucatan is all coral limestone elds full of chunks of rocks pretty much like our Florida Keys. Litteraly everywhere one looks, walks or drives there are rocks of every size, though mostly st size to two feet thick. The natives use these rock for fences, walls for their homes, business buildings, etc. They are all made of local abundant rocks. Rocks are so abundant that many walls are very high higher than needed (possibly in an effort to completely clear an area),especially at plantation entrances, around lodges and in inner older parts of the cities. And, of course, in the many Mayan ruins scattered all through much of the Yucatan as well as Central America, their temples were also made of mined limestone as well as a cement they stuccoed over many of the rocks. And, they must have been awesome in their heyday to say the least. Plus the physical labor put into these massive temples (near Egyptian-like pyramids) is incomprehensible! To make the cement for covering their work they needed trees to burn for the heat to break down the stones for cement. More and more they cleared the forests for this purpose. And every few decades they would decide to add on or expand the structures too, so they needed even more trees to burn, and like so many of the worlds societies, they ended up destroying their environment, and then they in turn as a population, crashed. Of course, the Yucatan is once again fairly populated, especially the towns like Merida and Tulum that are now large cities. We wished to avoid them though and visit the Mayan Ruins and other lovely areas and places. Some of the spots we were especially impressed with besides the many ruins were Xi-xim Lodge on the beach and the Hacienda Ochil, a former sisal plantation. All in all the group identi ed dozens of butter ies. I was especially impressed with the Dark Kite Swallowtail (Eurytides philolaus) shaped like and related to our Zebra Swallowtail, which is white with blackish streaks. Dark Kites though were basically black with light blue streaks. We found hundreds puddling in a table sized wet area, which was really neat! I had a blast looking for birds in the parks associated with the Mayan Ruins. The black and blue Yucatan Jays, as an example, were big and stunning, as were the Black-headed and Garden Trogons. The blue shimmering and metallic Redlegged Honeycreeper was straight out of the tropics and so were the Turquoise-browed Motmots with their raquettipped tails (the birds strip; the feathers off the quills except for the tip). They sit quietly in a tree swinging the tail back and forth like a clocks pendulum and at the same time call Mot Mot, hence the local name of clock bird for the clock-like tail action and calls. www.WakullaDiving.com Wakulla Diving Center, Inc.

Governor Rick Scott announced Hansens appointment to the ve-state commission that coordinates marine resources in the Gulf of Mexico. Hansen, 62, is the chief executive of cer and president of the Florida Council on Community Mental Health. He lled a vacant seat within the Gulf commission, and was appointed June 3, with the term ending in January 2016. The commission is composed of three members from each of the ve Gulf States the head of the marine resource agency of each state, a member of the legislature, and a citizen with knowledge of marine sheries appointed by the governor. Hansen said the group has staff in Mississippi, where they do research, monitoring and basically provide recommendations to regulatory agencies responsible for management of Gulf resources. Hansen has lived in Wakulla County since moving from Miami in 1980. He has worked in many capacities of state government budgeting, including governors staffs, senate, legislature and Health and Human Services. When Gov. Scott was running for office, I went over state budget issues with him while I was working in senate at the time, helped him get established, Hansen said. He appointed me to be agency head for Persons with Disabilities, and then hired me back to be senate appropriations staff director. Hansens experience in budgeting and Health and Human Services made for a good transition as president of the Florida Council for Community Mental Health, a trade organization for agencies around the state. Hansen said he is happy to serve the state, and Wakulla County, in a new capacity while still using his budgeting knowledge. I am a very avid sherman, spear sherman, and cast netter, Hansen said. I cant tell you how many hours Ive spent in the Gulf of Mexico. Fishing is important to Wakulla County. Hansen offered his help to the countys marine resources and mental health support organizations. Anything I can do to assist county in any way, I will, Hansen said. I know how important mental health is to the sheriff. So if there is anything I can do in particular in this position to help Wakulla County, please let me know. Hansen can be reached at the of ce for the Florida Council for Community Mental Health 801-224-6048. Michael Hansen
www.thewakullanews.com THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 24, 2014 Page 11 Everyone has heard the story of the boy who cried wolf, and this has become a reality for the Coast Guard Station in Annapolis, Maryland. After receiving a series of hoax calls, they have spent over $15,000 responding. Why is that important to our area? Our closest Coast Guard station is in Panama City. If a distress call is received, they are a good three hours from being in our water and ready to respond. Air support, if needed has to come from Air Station Mobile. All of these resources are part of the larger picture of the Cast Guard. When one station is forced to spend limited resources responding to a false emergency, it hurts everyone. While the Coast Guard Auxiliary is here to help, we also operate with limitations. Many of our members also work full time and are not able to respond immediately. We are all in the Coast Guard active duty, reserve or Auxiliary because we want to serve others and promote safety. An event like what Annapolis is facing work to undermine what we can do for those who are truly in need. In working to increase access to safety, the Coast Guard is featuring an opportunity for individuals to be featured on their blog. Send them a tweet on how you stay safe on the water using #safeboatingtips for a chance to be featured on the of cial Coast Guard blog! If you send a tweet, be sure to post it to our Facebook page as well Apalachee Bay Flotilla 1 2 and we will print it here! Flotilla 12 is also holding an About Safe Boating class. The class will be offered on August 16th from 8:30am 5:00pm at the Wakulla County Agricultural Extension Center Room 3. The center is located at 84 Cedar Avenue in Crawfordville. For information call Chuck Hickman, 850-926-9262. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Auxiliary, check out our website at www.uscgaux.net then contact our Flotilla Staff Ofcer for Human Resources, Raye Crews, at Rayec@uscgaux. net or Flotilla Commander Duane Treadon at Duanet@uscgaux.net.

Conditions were near at calm all day with a humidity below 50% and temperatures in the 80s F. We love both hook and line and spear shing. We completed only three dives between 60 and 40 feet, with water temperatures in the 85 degree down to 30 feet and a bit cooler below a thermocline to the bottom. Visibility above the thermocline was 50 feet and below around 40 feet, all on a falling tide. Our rst dive, breathing open circuit Nitrox for lower decompression stress (and longer bottom times), was for around 30 minutes. We had plenty of opportunity to spear sh, but missed every shot. I cant say what challenges faced my dive partner. But we were very embarrassed to return with nothing but tales of the usual Goliath Grouper (protected) and a sighting of a large nurse shark, both clearly amused at our futile antics. During our surface interval between dive sites, we recon gured our kit, with new shafts, larger bands for me, and better placement of resources while on the dive. Dive #2 was in a similar depth with similar pro le, a near identical site, right down to the thermocline. Maybe it was our determination, perhaps our recon gured kit, or just plain luck, but in a little over 30 minutes, I landed a 12 pound Red Grouper, and two similarly weighted Gag Groupers. OK, I admit, one Gag I had to spear 4 times to nally catch (never leave an injure animal if possible). I left many more, even larger sh unchallenged because I did not want to exceed our limit and yes, my partner was low on breathing gas. He too collected his limit of Gags. The attached picture is of me and the catch of that 30 minute dive. Dive #3 was in shallower water but still in federal waters. Gag Grouper was off the menu by now. Those shing from the surface were returning large Gags to the sea, available for the next visitor to the site. I dropped down through warm water, a sudden chill as I pass through the thermocline, to see an ever more clear landscape below. I load the bands on my spear gun. I make out details of the rock outcropping below, a ledge here, a protruding spire there, silver bait sh swirling around as Spanish mackerel and Amberjack dart in and out of the school. I am so mesmerized at the scene that I am unprepared as a large King Mackerel swims right past me. I point my gun and pull the trigger with a sure shot, only to nd the safety on, and the sh gone before I can recuperate. Lucky devil I think, but not upset at all. For 40 minutes I poke my light, af xed at the end of my gun, under every ledge, chasing Gags out of the way. Vociferous booming rewards me under the largest ledge, Goliaths communicating their displeasure of my penetrating light. What I dont nd on any of the dives are Red Snapper, legal sized Hog sh, and Lion sh. I decide to take a few Mangrove Snapper, and then, like shooting a bird, one Spanish mackerel. This results in a lot of blood, which of course captures the attention of larger predators. Within a few minutes of my shot, I look behind me to see a bull shark swimming at my ns, clearly looking for supper.

From the Front Page Tallahassee Urban Search and Rescue No. 7 unit was on the scene with equipment and a crane to execute the rescue. We called them, and they brought it down, Morgan said. They have the technical expertise and the certi cation to do this. Basically were assisting them right now. He was not physically capable of getting down himself. Josh, whose team works out of Dallas, said he has been doing that kind of contracting work for a long time, But I never saw anyone get that bad, that fast, he said. Were trying to make sure he is as hydrated as possible, but theres not much we can do down here. Once rescue workers reached the victim, they started the long decent back to the ground. Wakulla County Sheriff Charlie Creel said the Tallahassee Fireghter who rescued the worker is a local guy Kurt Hindle, who also volunteers for Wakulla County Fire Rescue. Harnessed together, Hindle lowered the worker to the ground safely after the three-hour ordeal, who was then loaded into a waiting ambulance. Talquin employees opened their parking lot for the plethora of emergency vehicles, and brought out cold refreshments for the rescue crews to keep cool. Many curious spectators showed up to watch the rescue.

I lost a lot of friends. So Ross knows the trauma that veterans might have experienced, and continue to face. Besides lending an ear to anyone who drops by, Ross said assisting veterans and their families with the VA claims process is a big part of his job. But thats not all Im trying to do, Ross said. If they can get help quicker from the community, then I will point them to community resources. I give them information on bene ts they may be eligible for. Or just sit down and talk if they want to. Its hard to explain but I call it full service, one-stop shopping. Whatever they need. I just want to serve. Ross said he is working hard to get plugged into all the local organizations that could possibly assist veterans and their families. There are 3,400 veterans in this county, Ross said. Their problems are individual to them, but they share collectively with everyone else too. But mostly its issues with the VA denying their claims. They dont know exactly what they have to do to bridge the hurdle. I am trying to help them do that. Several widows are trying to get bene ts, or something as simple as a headstone for their loved ones. Ill do that too. Ross said one mother of a deceased veteran came in with a pile of paperwork, and Ross helped her complete it, line by line. Anything they need, Im going to ght until the end, Ross said. Ross said he wants to put a face to the veterans of Wakulla County. I want the county to know who our veterans are, Ross said. And actually realize what they sacri ced for our freedom. Those veterans laid the pathway for me, so I have the opportunity to follow in their footsteps. Another vision for the future includes a merging of local veterans and JROTC. Im thinking about a mentorship program, Ross said. Ross said he would like to link youth who are considering a military career with members of active duty, guard, reserve and veterans to share experiences, in addition to a recruiters pitch. Ross added that he would like to assist the Womens Auxiliary with the organization of a POW and MIA day, in addition to Veterans Day and Memorial Day, which are commemorated in Wakulla County. So its not just two holidays a year for veterans, Ross said. Were trying to put the veterans up front in the community. I know the spirit to serve is within all of us.

Charles Dickens ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Technology snafus tax your patience. But before you throw that computer or other bulky hardware into the trash, take a deep breath and call someone knowledgeable for help. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Dont be too upset if your generosity goes unappreciated. These things happen, and rather than brood over it, move on. A new friend could open up some exciting new possibilities. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A loved one helps you get through an especially difficult emotional situation. Spend the weekend immersed in the body and soul restorative powers of music and the other arts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You are pretty much in charge of what you want to do this week. However, it might be a good idea to keep an open mind regarding suggestions from people you know you can trust. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Another chance to shine (something always dear to the Lions heart) might be resented by others. But you earned it, so enjoy it. The weekend brings news about a family member. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A suggestion that never took off could become viable again. Dust it off, update it if necessary, and resubmit it. In your personal life, a new relationship takes an interesting turn. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Confronting a new challenge to your stated position could work to your advantage by settling all doubts once youre able to present a solid defense backed up by equally solid facts. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You enjoy doing nice things for others. But this is a good time to do something nice for yourself as well. You might want to start by planning a superspecial getaway weekend. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Some changes you feel you need to make might be reasonable and appropriate. But others might lead to new problems. Think things through carefully before you act. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good instincts usually keep the sure-footed Goat on the right path. So, what others might see as stubbornness on your part, in fact re ects your good sense of what is worth supporting. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A period of introspection could lead to some surprising conclusions and also equally surprising changes involving a number of your longheld positions on several issues. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The nancially practical Pisces might want to take a sensible approach to spending as well as investing. Being prudent now pays off later. A romantic situation moves into another phase. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of curiosity keeps you continually alert for whats new about people, places and things. 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Crawfordville Branch11 Preston Circle | Crawfordville, FL 32327 GoGulfWinds.com | 850.562.6702 By NICOLE ZEMAnzema@thewakullanews.netA party to celebrate 10 years of delicious barbecue brought out former employees and loyal customers to Hamaknockers Bar-B-Q on the afternoon of July 19. Guests listened to live music by the Jordan Miller Band, nursed libations, loaded up on barbecue, played games and won raf e prizes at the event. Jim Lowe, owner of Hamaknockers said the restaurant business is tough. But we beat the law of averages, he said. Besides plain, old hard work, Lowe said there are four secrets to running a successful restaurant: 1) Consistently good food that is a little unique. 2) Really good service. 3) Good employee attitudes and atmosphere. 4) Be clean. Of the extensive menu for a barbecue joint, Lowe said his favorite item has always been the sliced smoke steak sandwich. On the Facebook page, people from 22 different counties have checked in at the restaurant, Lowe said. Even if they cant speak English, just give us a (thumbs up), and we can communicate, he said. While running the restaurant has been great, Lowe said he is looking forward to retirement. If you want a good, pro table barbecue business, come and talk to me, Lowe said.PHOTOS BY NICOLE ZEMAPhotos top to bottom, Jim and Candy Lowe are pictured with their sons and daughter in law: Jason; and Jared and Colleen.

Page 20 THE WAKULLA NEWS, Thursday, July 24, 2014 www.thewakullanews.comSummertime in Wakulla County is lled with the calls and cries of native wildlife. Animals, birds, insects and amphibians are all enthusiastically staking territorial claims and seeking mates at the top of their collective voices. While the activity of these residents may seem more obvious during the dark hours, daylight has just as much action. During the sunny hours human are moving around at a higher, and by default noisier, level which obscures the wild calls. One or more generations removed from close contact with wildlife, many residents have a difficult time distinguishing between the calls, croaks and groans of the different species. But there is one staccato drumming which leaves little doubt, even with contemporary residents who are digitally ensconced, as to its origins. The hammering sounds created by Wakulla Countys woodpeckers are not easily confused with any other creature residing locally. The resonating beat may be attributed to searching for food or building a nesting cavity for the next generation. Members of this family live on most continents, except Australia and surrounding islands, Madagascar, and Antarctica. Most, but not all, live in wooded areas and subsist on insects. The local woodpeckers construct their nest in trees where they are able to hollow out a suitably sized cavity for the chicks. In many cases dead trees, sometimes called snags, which are still standing offer an ideal location. The high and isolated nest locations provide adequate security for the woodpeckers white eggs which commonly arrive as two to ve per clutch. Incubation last about two weeks and they will be ready to leave the nest after about a month. The dead tree selected for nesting also provides a close source of wood burrowing insects. Competition and aggressive behavior between woodpeckers will occur when nesting locations are in short supply. In return for the nutrition, woodpeckers help control the population of wood destroying insects which cost rural and urban property owners multiple millions of dollars annually. Wakulla County is home to nine species of woodpeckers, depending on the time of year. The yellow bellied sapsucker and the northern flickers are migratory, and will be passing through in the spring and fall. The Downy woodpecker is the smallest in Wakulla County. It is about 6 inches in length with its bill half the length of its head. It is very similar in appearance and behavior to the Hairy woodpecker, also a Florida native, which is about 9 inches in length. Another identifying feature is its bill is noticeable longer than its head. The largest woodpecker in Wakulla County is the pileated woodpecker. Males can approach two feet in height and have a very distinctive laughing call along with an insatiable appetite for insect larva. Unfortunately for too many presidents, their rst exposure to pileated woodpeckers is from damage to structures. These birds seek carpenter bee larva with wild abandon and are capable of destroying post and siding during that hunt. Their hard chiseled beaks and long barbed tongues make most immature insects a quick snack while emitting a distinct racket.
