en Underwater Wakulla- September 19, 2019 <p> <strong>Training</strong></p> <p> As I look back over this summer, I think of the students that I have had the privilege to train in open water scuba classes. At every class session I am reminded of how important training is in the scuba industry. Its not about the financial aspect of the diving industry to me as it is the safety of my students. As an instructor, I have a responsibility to every individual to make sure I don&rsquo;t cut corners when it comes to training them for the underwater world that is about to open to them.</p> Underwater Wakulla <img src="" alt="Gregg Stanton" title="Gregg Stanton" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> Scallop seasons ending in September <img src="" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> <strong>From FWC News</strong><br /> <br /> Bay scallop seasons in the following regions close on:<br /> Sept. 11 &ndash; Dixie and a portion of Taylor County (includes Dekle Beach, Keaton Beach and Steinhatchee).<br /> Sept. 16 &ndash; Gulf County.<br /> Sept. 25 &ndash; Franklin through northwest Taylor County and Levy through Hernando counties (includes Carrabelle, Lanark, St. Marks, Cedar Key, Crystal River and Homosassa).<br /> Coast Guard Auxiliary Reports Sept. 12 <p> <strong>By Carolyn Brown Treadon<br /> </strong></p> Gulf Coast Weekly Almanac Sept. 12 to Sept. 18 FWC Law Enforcement report Sept. 12, 2019 <p> <strong>From FWC News</strong><br /> <br /> Some of the cases handled by the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Law Enforcement during Aug. 9.<br /> (There were no cases reported for Wakulla County.)<br /> <br /> Keeping your hands safe when shooting <img src="" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> <strong>By MARJ LAW</strong><br /> <br /> I like shopping at our largest department store because it seems to be the social hub of the county. When was the last time you were there and didn&rsquo;t see anyone you knew?<br /> So we&rsquo;re adding cans of cat food into the buggy, and a friend I hadn&rsquo;t seen in maybe a decade is right there in the same aisle. Delighted to reconnect, we start talking about the past, the present, and then handguns.<br /> Underwater Wakulla- September 12, 2019 <p> <strong>Why Hawaii</strong></p>
