  • What happened to the water during Irma?

    Isn’t that wild? Have you ever seen anything like it?
    That’s the sort of thing folks were saying as I drove around Wakulla taking photos after Hurricane Irma stomped through Sept. 10.

  • ‘I am here and I am blessed!’

    Her son, Landon, is a Wakulla High senior this year, so Susan Payne Turner was sitting down with him recently, picking out cute photos of him growing up to place in his Senior Class ad in the yearbook.

    “I could have not been here, to do this with him,” she said, eyes filling with tears at the painful memory.
    Then she shakes it off.
    “But I am here!” she says, smiling. “I am here for my child and I am blessed!”
