A LANDMARK LOST


Seafood truck slams

into Apalachicola bank

By Lois Swoboda and David Adlerstein
Times StaffWriters

The Apalachicola State Bank
building, a downtown landmark for
more than a century, erupted in


flames early Saturday morning af-
ter a seafood delivery truck driver
slammed into the front of it.
Preliminary indications are the
driver, Joseph Lee Mixon, 43, of
Apalachicola, intended to cause
some manner of mishap.
He was pulled from the wreckage
by a Tallahassee newspaper delivery
man and rushed by ambulance to
Weems Memorial Hospital with seri-
ous injuries. He later was transport-
ed to Bay Medical Center, where he


was treated and released Sunday.
Fire crews from around Franklin
County finished dousing the flames
about 10 a.m. Saturday morning as
a crowd of onlookers assembled at
sunrise behind police tape at the in-
tersection of Avenue E and Market
Street.
The truck, a 2007 Peterbilt re-
cently acquired by Ward and Sons
Seafood Company in Apalachicola,
was barreling down U.S. 98 about
4:40 a.m. when it careened into the


side of the offices of Coastal Com-
munity Bank, the company that now
owns Apalachicola State Bank.
A friend of Mixon's, who said they
spoke every day, said during their
telephone conversation about 9 p.m.
Friday, Mixon was upset over being
unable to reach his girlfriend but did
not sound violent or out of control.
About 3:30 a.m. Saturday, how-
ever, Mixon called his friend's cell

Joseph Mixon, the driver of
the truck that triggered Saturday
morning's stunning fire, checked
himself out of a Panama City hos-
pital Sunday after-
noon and returned
to his home in
Apalachicola.
Apalachicola /
Police Chief Bob-

was told by one
of Mixon's friends

the collision. Saturday.
As of Tuesday
afternoon, the Florida Highway
Patrol, lead agency in the investi-
gation, had not arrested Mixon for
any crimes but was actively pursu-
ing their inquiry.
"Everything's still pending,"
said FHP Trooper B.S. Rodden-
berry. "We're still in the middle of a
crash investigation. We'll be mak-
ing contact with the driver and get
his side of the story."
Roddenberry said blood was
drawn at both Weems Memorial
Hospital and Bay Medical Center
but that it could take three weeks to
a month to obtain the test results.
"Under a situation like that, any
time there is serious bodily injury,
we're able to subpoena medical
blood tests," the trooper said.

Reappraisals force half-million

in county spending cuts


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
County government will face about a
half-million dollars in budget cuts as the
county's latest combined property valua-
tion has dropped by about $142 million.
Property Appraiser Doris Barber Pend-
leton told county commissioners Tuesday
morning she has revised downward the
preliminary valuation of about $3.597 bil-
lion she gave them in July.
The valuation now stands at a little
more than $3.454 billion, representing a
drop of about 4 percent, and the valuation
could drop even further following a report
this week by Special Magistrate Paul Cu-
reton.
Cureton's report is based on his find-
ings following last month's two-day Value
Adjustment Board hearing, in which 147
petitions were heard.
"We're supposed to have it in by end of
this week," said Pendleton, who will have
the option of recommending to the county
that they either accept or reject Cureton's
recommendation. In the event they reject
it, the Value Adjustment Board will recon-
vene.
This is the second-consecutive year in
which the preliminary valuations, certi-
fied in July, and the final valuations have
varied by a significant amount. Last year,
the difference was about $100 million.
"Last year, this same thing happened,"
Pendleton said. "You would have thought
they (the county commission) would have

looked at that. Whenever we send these
TRIM (Truth in Millage) notices out, that
is an open door policy for the public to
come in and question their values."
TRIM notices are sent in mid-August,
and homeowners, including developers
who represent several parcels, have until
early September to challenge their ap-
praisals.
"They may bring in appraisals, surveys,
they can bring in most anything they want
to," Pendleton said. "These last three years
have been real sticklers."
She said the disparities occurred be-
cause there was a limited amount of infor-
mation available to her office during this
down time for the real estate market.
"We had minimal sales and minimal
new construction and most of the sales
that we did have were bank foreclosures
and auctions, and unfortunately, we're
not allowed to look at those," Pendle-
ton said. "You have very little to go on.
With what few sales we had, we went
across the county and came up with a
12- to 14-percent decrease."
Those who challenged their TRIM no-
tices drew on several tools to convince
Pendleton to exercise her statutory au-
thority to lower their appraisals ahead of
the Value Adjustment Board hearing.
"But when people started coming in
with new information, a lot of people actu-
ally had independent appraisals on their
property, and we're allowed to look at

Carrabelle's John McInnis retires


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

At the Nov. 6 meeting of
the Carrabelle City Com-
mission, public works direc-
tor John McInnis said good-
bye to his adopted city for
the last time and went home
to Mexico Beach.
McInnis has worked in
Carrabelle since spring
2005, starting as city admin-
istrator and later serving
as city manager and then
director of public works and
special projects.
Members of the city
commission and citizens
said farewell with heartfelt
thanks.
"As someone famous
once said, there are things
that we don't want to hap-
pen but have to accept,
things we don't want to
know but have to learn, and


people we can't live with-
out but have to let go," said
former Mayor Mel Kelly.
"Go with our gratitude and
our heartfelt appreciation,
John. You helped to make
Carrabelle better for all of
us. Godspeed as you live
your future."
Commissioner Richard
Sands said, "I've been with
this man for three years.
He was here when I was
elected by the grace of God,
because I had no idea what
I was doing. He never did
anything without thinking
of Carrabelle. I think I've
learned enough, John, that
I'm going to turn you loose.
I'm going to do you one bet-
ter. You're fired!"
Commissioner Ray Tyre
said, "I've never known
anybody like McInnis. He's
a brilliant man. He's done
more for Carrabelle than
most of you will ever know.

Long-lasting memories of getting to the 'Point'


Never made any money on
Alligator Point to speak of; but
used to really enjoy going out
there in the good prime days.
First there was "Borders"
Cafe, had food, picnic sup-
plies, etc. They had a daugh-
ter back then and a lot of Car-
rabelle High School parties
and dances there. Later on
they would have bands on the
weekends.
After they phased out, the
infamous "Crews Quarters"
opened up down the street,
in care of Vern and Jo Grace.
Liquor and beer were served
with pool tables, etc. Bands
were there on occasion. Now
Vern was a character you
wouldn't forget. Wild as a
buck, full of laughs, but ran
a tight ship, really. Remem-
ber he had a deer's posterior
mounted over the bar. There
was a 'Nam vet who hung out
there, and when he ran out of
money, he would let Vern hold
his glass eye. While Vern held
the eye, he would place it in -
you guessed it in the deer's
rear end.
His wife Jo was much more
subdued. They lived next door


with her mother, whom ev-
eryone called "Granny." Now
Granny fixed a ton of food
every Sunday afternoon for
anybody and everybody. Did
a wedding out there, and the
groom's uncle gave me a $50
tip for getting them out of his
house.
Further down the beach,
Clayton Taff built the beautiful
Point Lounge. The fantastic
woodinteriorwassomethingto
see. Large L-shaped bar, with
an exit out onto the big deck
for sun and a fantastic view
of the Gulf. Had a big dance
floor with weekend bands, and
a Sunday afternoon matinee
that the wife and I used to love
to go to. Dance, party a bit, and
get home before the "Do Right
Boys" popped out. Hurricanes
finally did it in.
Longest lasting of course
was "Pride of the Point" as
it was called once, marina,
lounge and restaurant. Used
to go out to watch the big
yachts come and go, the fish
catches, good drinks and food.
My mentor and good friend,
Buddy Teague of Capital City
Bank, was a regular there


ALLIGATOR POINT MARINA: This 1969 photo, property of the
Florida Department of Commerce collection, shows the Alligator


Point marina and yacht basin.
and gave me a lot of good ad-
vice and counsel back in the
'60s and '70s. It's been a while
since I have been there so I
don't know what the lay of the
land is.
Everything else is gone,
like so may other good estab-
lishments in the county. Until
the law changed, the eastern
boundary of Franklin County
went to mean high tide of Och-
lockonee River. Wakulla Coun-
ty was dry, so was Angelo's,
which was formerly "George's
at the Bridge," and Faiver's,


which was built on a pier so
they could have a Franklin
County liquor license. There
also used to be a bar out on
a pier on the left side of the
bridge.
Well I still miss the "Oaks"
restaurant, motel, and store.
Seems like such a waste. Lots
more people now than then.
Kinda like "Gone With The
Wind."

Mr Bill is the pen name
of Bill Miller of Carrabelle.


Retired educators

offer Martha Kersey

scholarship
The Franklin/Gulf Retired Educators' Associa-
tion is proud to announce that, as of graduation in
June 2008, there are four $500 scholarships for which
graduating seniors planning to further their
education either at a junior college or at a university
may apply.
The latest scholarship offered is the Martha
Kersey Memorial Scholarship, given in memory of
Martha Kersey who taught at Carrabelle High School for
over 30 years. Rose Creamer, 2008 graduate of Franklin
County High School, is the first recipient of the scholar-
ship.
The money for the annual scholarship comes from a
memorial fund set up at the Apalachicola State Bank by
Martha's husband, William Kersey.
Mr. Kersey especially challenges all of Martha's
former students who feel she made a difference in
their lives to make a contribution to this fund. This
challenge also applies to all who knew Martha, who
was active in many church and civic organizations, al-
ways sharing her musical talents for school gradua-
tions and church functions, and sharing her delicious
preserves and jellies, never hiding her talents in a hay-
stack.
Contributions can be made at any branch of
The Apalachicola State Bank. Please make checks
out to the William Kersey Memorial Fund for Martha
Kersey.

Remembering


when suffragettes


blocked sidewalks

I created my own teachable moment last week, and my
English students learned a bit of history. Nov. 16 marked
the anniversary of the "Night of Terror" in 1917 when 33
suffragists were arrested and imprisoned for picketing the
White House.
Their signs read: "President Wilson, How long do you
advise us to wait?" "Wilson is against women," and "Vote
against Wilson, he opposes national woman suffrage." The
charge was "obstructing sidewalk traffic."
The men in charge took great umbrage at these uppity
women and responded with brutality. The warden at the
Occoquan Workhouse in Virginia gave 40 prison guards
permission to beat the ladies
The men in with clubs. Lucy Burns was
charged took great chained with her hands
chage o lo Igrt above her head and left there
umbrage at these overnight. When Alice Paul
went on a hunger strike, they

a d d The women continued the
and responded fight and finally gained the
with brutality vote in 1920.
I was reminded of this

the ladies with thought this anniversary was
too important to pass up.
clubs. My kids were aghast. Not
a single one of them, not
even the seniors, had any idea of the struggle and sacrifice
it took for women to be treated as citizens. When I began the
presentation, there was a bit of chatter. Soon, the classroom
became dead quiet. I rocked their complacent world and
enjoyed every minute of it. Perhaps a few of the intellectually
curious will do a little more research on their own. I hope so.
I look at President-elect Obama, surrounded and
influenced by strong women his mother, his grandmother,
and his wife. He grew up in female households and lives in
one today. I doubt that it would ever occur to him that women
are less capable than men. It may have taken 88 years, but,
thankfully, this is where we are now.
Much change has occurred even in my own lifetime. In
the Fifties and Sixties most professional women were either
teachers or secretaries. In fact, I believe one of the reasons
for the decline in education is that when opportunities for
smart women opened up, fewer and fewer became teachers.
Once they could enter the professional and corporate world,
the classroom no longer beckoned.
When I was in high school, there were no team sports for
girls. Now they have volleyball, basketball, and softball. Girls
were required to take home economics; boys took shop. No
questions asked.
When I went to Auburn University in 1970, all women
were required to live on campus; none of the men were. After
a year, I transferred to Florida State University with its open
dormitory policy.
I would argue that the female struggle for equal rights is
as important in history and as transforming as the date of
any war or peace treaty.
So, why did I have to teach it in English class?

Letters to the EDITOR


Elections officials a
credit to county

Dear Editor:
I had the opportunity
to serve as a poll watcher
for early voting and at the
general election. Through-
out the weeks preceding
the election, Doris Gibbs
and her staff patiently edu-
cated me and the other poll
watchers about the election
process. On Election Day, I
started the morning at Pre-
cinct 5, the Senior Citizens
Center in Carrabelle, and
spent the afternoon at Al-
ligator Point.
My first-hand experi-
ence is that our Supervi-
sor of Elections, Doris
Gibbs, runs a fantastically
well-organized office. All of
her regular staff and poll
workers were professional,
knowledgeable, friendly,
and helpful. I have talked to
the poll watchers from the
other precincts and the re-
ports are all the same. We
were all treated extremely
well and were welcomed
to the point that the poll
workers even shared the
delicious snacks and meals
they had prepared.
These elections offi-
cials work a very long day.
Every one of them executed
their responsibilities with
the utmost consideration to
the public they serve. At the
County office in Apalachic-
ola and at the courthouse
Annex in Carrabelle, the
experience was the same.
Friendly and helpful, all of
these county employees are
a credit to Franklin County,
and to Doris Gibbs.
I am looking forward
to Ida Elliott's taking over
the office of Supervisor of

Help save the bay
Dear Editor:
The purpose of this let-


ter is to create awareness
of a Large/Small Scale
Land Use Amendment
and potential develop-
ment of 360 acres being
fast-tracked in the area of
Whiskey George Creek off
of Highway 65.
At the Board of County
Commissioners' meeting
on Sept. 16, it was decided
to move this project to a
Public Hearing. The Pub-
lic Hearing is scheduled for
Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. during the
regular BOCC meeting.
This property is cur-
rently zoned Agricultural
and is being used as a pine
straw farm. The request
is to change the zoning to
Residential. Some of the
land will be zoned for one
home perfive acres and will
include 70 homes. Some of
the land will be zoned for
one home per one acre and
will include five homes.
The reason this project
can be fast-tracked is due
to a new law in Florida.
The new law allows a land-
owner to bypass the normal
lengthy, stringent process
for rezoning large tracts of
land as long as the owner
carves out a portion of it for
affordable housing. So far,
Franklin County is the only
county in Florida to have
done this under the new
law with a project located
west of Apalachicola.
The location of Whis-
key George Creek is a very
ecologically sensitive, frag-
ile area which flows into
East Bay where productive
oyster beds exist. Even as
the land is currently in a
natural state, during heavy
squalls like Hurricane Fay
brought, it caused the bay
to be shut down for three to
four days. This was due to
the storm water runoff and
animal waste being washed
into the Apalachicola wa-
ter system. Two-Mile and
Eastpoint have already
been permanently closed
at least a mile or so from
shore due to water con-
tamination. The develop-
ment under consideration
plans to use aerobic septic
systems and cluster homes
along the waterfront.
Franklin County al-
ready has hundreds of
platted residential lots still


undeveloped. We are not
lacking for housing oppor-
tunities here.
Although Franklin
County desperately needs
affordable housing and this
project is in relatively close
proximity to the new Con-
solidated School, the risks
far outweigh the rewards.
In an effort to provide af-
fordable homes for only
five families, this project
could potentially harm the
bay and cause extensive
shutdowns. This would af-
fect 150 to 200 families who
make their living off the bay,
in addition to others who
enjoy the pristine waters
for recreational and com-
mercial fishing purposes.
At the Board of County
Commissioners' meet-
ing when they decided to
schedule the Public Hear-
ing, Commissioner Bevin
Putnal expressed that an
owner had a right to do
whatever he wants with
his land. I'm also a huge
supporter of property
rights. However, I don't
take lightly major changes
in a county's Comprehen-
sive Plan. When this land
was purchased, it was pur-
chased as Agricultural. It
needs to stay Agricultural
and in its natural state to
preserve and protect our
pristine bay and natural
resources.
If you agree with me,
please call the Commis-
sioners and let them know
how you feel and please
show up at the Public Hear-
ing on Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. It
is with high hope that the
Board of County Commis-
sioners will do the right
thing and keep this land
zoned Agricultural when
this project comes before
them at the Public Hearing
on Dec. 2.
Working to protect our
natural resources and spe-
cial way of life.
Gail M. Riegelmayer
Franklin County Resident

Thanks Mrs. Gander,
for taking a stand

To the Editor:
This is for Mrs. Joann
Gander and then the Frank-


lin County School Board
members. If in any way my
speaking at a board meet-
ing, or anything you heard
that I said sounded like a
direct personal attack, I
am writing this as a letter
of apology. I express my
regrets and I am sorry if it
went out that way.
I really do respect the
positions you all are in and
also as a person, but I do
have a love for our children
in this county. It is more
than football for a few;
also it is more than soft-
ball and baseball. I believe
now more than ever we can
have a youth center.
Mrs. Gander, the men
of Love Center sing a song
that says "Stand." Mrs.
Gander, that's one thing
you did through good and
bad times. You took a stand.
May God bless you and keep
you in your daily walk.
Granville Croom, Jr.

Grateful for
supporters in judicial
campaign

To the editor:
I would like to thank
the many supporters who
helped me with my recent
judicial campaign. I en-
joyed working with you,
and found meeting so many
citizens in the six counties
of the Second Judicial Cir-
cuit to be truly rewarding.
I'd also like to thank the
nearly 80,000 voters who
voted for me to become a
judge; I value your support
and am grateful to have
had the opportunity to be
on the ballot in this historic
general election. Know
that I will continue to serve
the people of Florida at the
Attorney General's Office
and the people of this com-
munity through pro bono
and other volunteer ser-
vice
Finally, I wish all the
best to my honorable op-
ponent, Frank Sheffield,
and to Charles Dodson
and Mark Walker, who will
replace the three retiring
Circuit Court Judges in
January 2009.

The Times I AS


Cape St. George Light to open to public


The Cape St. George Light, newly recon-
structed on St. George Island, will open to the
public on Monday, Dec. 1.
Prior to the official opening, special "Light-
house Preview Days" will be held on the Sat-
urday and Sunday after Thanksgiving, Nov 29
and 30, with the light open for climbing at no
charge on those two days.
"We want the people of Franklin County,
who have been so supportive of the recon-
struction effort, to enjoy the results of their
hard work and generous contributions to 'Res-
cue the Light,'" said Dennis Barnell, president
of the St. George Lighthouse Association.
The lighthouse will be open on Saturday,
Nov. 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday,
Nov. 30, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
On the eve of the opening of the Cape St.
George Light, another piece of the tower's
colorful story fell into place when a forgotten
keeper of the lighthouse emerged from the
shadows of history.
Louis Buras Sr., who is not listed in any of
the usual documentation of lighthouse keep-
ers at Cape St. George, has been discovered to
have served at the light station in the 1920's.
Keeper Buras was born in Boothville, LA in
1891 and joined the U.S. Lighthouse Service in
1919. He served at the Pensacola Lighthouse
from 1921 to 1923, and the "Journal of Light
Station at Pensacola, Fla. October 1923" in-
dicates that on Oct. 1, 1923, Buras was trans-
ferred from Pensacola to the Cape St. George
Light Station.
Vance and Patricia Buras, of Burkeville, TX,
the son and daughter-in-law of Keeper Buras,
visited the St. George Island Visitor Center &
Lighthouse Museum earlier this month and
brought with them copies of the Pensacola log
book and photographs of Keeper Buras. They
said that even though exact records do not ex-
ist, family anecdotal evidence leads them to
believe their father served at Cape St. George
from October 1923 to 1925.

(olvin serves as tour director

Also not yet listed as a Keeper of the Cape
St. George Light is the latest in the long line
of distinguished Lighthouse Keepers. Stan-
ley Colvin, of St. George Island, will serve
as tour director and "Lighthouse Keeper"


,when the Cape St. George
Light opens to the public
Dec. 1.
"I always loved the light-
house when it was on Little
St. George Island, but I didn't
have a boat and so didn't get
to visit it very often. Now in
STANLEY its new location it will be ac-
COLVIN cessible to everybody," Colvin
said. "I am proud to be asso-
ciated with the great effort by
the local people who
rebuilt this historic
landmark."
Colvin, a graduate
of Florida State Univer-
sity and retired from a
career with the State of
Florida, has worked as
a volunteer at the visitor ,
center since its opening ,-
in January 2008.
A few rules designed
to make your lighthouse
climb safe and enjoy- -.
able will apply both on -
the Preview Days and
after Dec. 1. Appropri-
ate footwear (no flip-
flops or bare feet) is
required; children must
be accompanied by ROOM WITH A VIEW:
an adult; only camera mainland as seen
equipment may be car- lighthouse.
ried up the stairs; food, grouse.
drinks, smoking, and
pets are not allowed in the lighthouse.
The lighthouse has a spiral staircase of 92
hand-crafted wooden stairs to the watch room,
and a narrow metal ladder to the lantern room.
The climb can be a bit strenuous, and people
with health conditions that may impact the
ability to climb are asked to carefully consider
the decision to climb.
Starting Dec. 1, the lighthouse will be open
on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9
a.m. to noon, and 1 to 3 p.m.; Saturday from
9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 3
p.m. Admission to the lighthouse will be $5 for
adults, and $3 for youth under age 16. Group
rates are available on request. Members of
the St. George Lighthouse Association and the


frf


Florida Lighthouse Association may climb at
no charge.
Fourth reconstruction of the light

The lighthouse recently completed at the
center of St. George Island is the fourth re-
construction of the Cape St. George Light that
once stood on Little St. George.
In 1831 Congress appropriated $11,400 for
the construction of a lighthouse to guide ships
into the thriving port of Apalachicola. The first
lighthouse was erected in 1833 near West Pass,
but was difficult to see
for maritime traffic ap-
proaching from the
east. After suffering
storm damage, it was
ultimately dismantled
and its bricks were used
in the construction of a
new tower, completed in
1848 at Cape St. George.
The second lighthouse
fell during a hurricane
in 1851.
_- The third lighthouse

Again using materials
from its predecessor,
but positioned this time
500 yards inland from
ANDREW DER the water's edge.
A view towards the The light was ex-
om the top of the tinguished during the
Civil War so as not to of-
fer guidance to federal
war ships, and relit in
1866. In 1949 the magnificent Fresnel lens was
replaced by an automated light, and the men
who worked as Lighthouse Keepers and Assis-
tant Keepers were no longer needed to carry
the fuel oil that had kept the light burning for
so many years.
The Cape St. George Light was listed on the
National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
By the 1990's the beachfront between the
lighthouse and the Gulf of Mexico had eroded
down to less than a few hundred feet. Hur-
ricane Andrew hit in 1992 and caused more
beach erosion, and the Coast Guard deactivat-
ed the light in 1994. For the first time in more
than 160 years, the light which had guided mar-
iners safely to Apalachicola was dark.


Hurricane Opal continued the destruction
in 1995, with a powerful tidal surge that washed
the lighthouse from its foundation and left the
fuel house and the shell of the Keeper's House
in ruins. The lighthouse began to lean at a pre-
carious 7.5 degree angle, the door was boarded
with plywood, and the iron staircase which the
surge had ripped from the walls was removed.
The once-proud tower seemed doomed.
But the community rallied to the support of
their beacon. The Cape St. George Lighthouse
Society raised funds to "Save the Light." A Tal-
lahassee contractor was hired to perform the
delicate rescue operation, and by digging sand
from one side of the light's base with a back-
hoe, the 400-ton tower gradually settled back
into a vertical position. The community re-
joiced at having saved the historic lighthouse
from near-certain and imminent collapse.
But subsequent years saw a replay of the
beach erosion story. By the spring of 2004 the
lighthouse was completely surrounded by
the thrashing Gulf waters and portions of its
new concrete base had washed away. The St.
George Lighthouse Association was formed
to manage another attempt to "Rescue the
Light." The debate as to whether the structure
should be shored up in place or moved to a new
location was cut short when the historic light-
house collapsed around noon on Friday, Oct.
21, 2005.
In a dramatic team effort involving private
contractors, local volunteers, and government
funding, the pieces of the Light were salvaged
and moved to a storage site on the mainland.
Volunteers gathered on weekends to carefully
clean the old mortar off the salvaged bricks,
and more than 22,000 original bricks were used
in the rebuilding effort.
The reconstruction of the lighthouse was
funded by private contributions and by two
State of Florida grants. Funds from the Frank-
lin County Tourist Development Council en-
abled the construction of a small temporary
Visitors Center and Lighthouse Museum,
which one day will be replaced by a permanent
facility built in the likeness of the original Keep-
er's House. A Department of Environmental
Protection Grant is funding the landscaping
underway in St. George Lighthouse Park.

News BRIEFS


Parker and Spohrer
reappointed to TDC
Despite some objections by
commissioners Parrish and Lock-
ley, both Paul Parker of Alligator
Point and Helen Spohrer of St.
George Island were reappointed
to the board of the Franklin Coun-
ty Tourist Development Commis-
sion (TDC) at the Nov. 18 meeting
of the Franklin County Commis-
sion.
Parrish complimented Spohrer
and Parker on their service to
the county but said he felt others
should be given the opportunity to
serve on the TDC and other pub-
lic committees.
Commissioner Noah Lockley
said, "These people have done
a fine job, but maybe it would be
better if we had advertised these
openings and given other people a
chance to apply."
The commissioners also voted
to have Commissioner Cheryl
Sanders be their representative
on the TDC board, replacing for-
mer Commissioner Russell Crof-
ton.

Emergency communications
workshop productive
Speaking at Tuesday's meeting
of the Franklin County Commis-
sion, Chairman Smokey Parrish


said he felt an emergency com-
munications workshop held Nov.
14 was "very productive in mov-
ing things forward."
County Planner Alan Pierce
said the meeting was "well attend-
ed by commissioners (Pinki) Jack-
el, (Cheryl) Sanders and (Smokey)
Parrish, sheriff-elect (Skip) Shiver
and assistants, current Sheriff's
Office representatives and com-
munication vendors."
At the meeting, the Sheriff's
personnel agreed to "do a better
job of notifying the fire depart-
ments when work is being done
on the communications system
and to amend standard opera-
tions and procedures to page fire
and emergency medical services
personnel," Pierce said. Sheriff's
department personnel will also
pursue dispatch certification
through further training.
Assistant Emergency Manage-
ment Director Mike Rundel set up
a standing committee of people
who rely on and work with the 911
system to deal with technical is-
sues on a regular basis.
"The meeting went very well
and resulted in us working very
well together," said St. George
Island Fire Chief Jay Abbott. "Be-
fore I felt like we were seven fire
departments going in seven dif-
ferent directions. Now maybe that
will change."


eryone involved reached out
and did all they could to help.
We are especially grateful to
our neighboring volunteer
fire departments from East-
point, St. George Island and
Carrabelle for bringing us
the personnel and resources
we needed to accomplish
the job. Excellent communi-
cations between the chiefs


and members, along with
good working relationships
and positive attitudes, made
things flow smoothly with ef-
fective results. As always it
was a pleasure to work with
competent and diligent fire-
fighters.

The Times staff apologizes for a typo-
graphical error in the Nov. 14 story about
a tragic fire in Lanark Village. The text
regarding the arrival of Progress Energy
trucks should have read:
(Mike) Rundel said his crew was dis-
patched at 6:09 a.m. "We still had the water
on before the power truck arrived. I didn't
see a Progress Energy employee till 6:59
a.m."
Some details of the Lanark fire remain
controversial. At the Nov. 18 meeting of
the Franklin County commission, Barbara
Lasher, of Lanark Village, told commis-
sioners that a group of trailers belonging
to Don Lively Construction impeded access
to a power pole delaying Progress Energy
from cutting power to the burning home.
"When I talked to Mr. Rothwell (Franklin
County's engineer) he said it was OK for the
trailers to be parked there. As a taxpayer, I
find this disturbing," said Lasher.
"If the county commission wants to do
any enforcement with people parking on
the public roadway, that is for them to do,
not the county engineer," Rothwell replied.
"I don't think anybody needs to park any-
thing on public roadways," said Chairman
Joseph Parrish. "That presents a hazard
to public health, safety and welfare. The
county commission needs to have a policy
on this."
County Attorney Michael Shuler said,
"There are ordinances against parking ve-
hicles or anything else in the public right of
way for more than six hours. In the past,
the county has had me send letters telling
the owner to move their property within
three days. If the vehicle is not moved, we
red tag it. If it still is not moved, we have it
towed and the owner pays the towing and
storage fees or forfeits the title."
Commissioner Cheryl Sanders said,
"Whatever is in the right of way needs to
be taken out of the right of way."

phone and left a garbled mes-
sage including the statement,
"What I'm fixing to do, you
can let (my girlfriend) know
it was all her fault. It's done
now."
Varnes said no note or
other indications of suicidal
intent had been found as of
Saturday afternoon.
Steve Holt, who was out
delivering newspapers to
newsstands, said he was near
the Coombs House Inn, at 80
6th St., when he saw the truck
speeding down U.S. 98.
"The vehicle passed me
going east on 98 at an ex-
tremely high rate of speed,"
he said, estimating it was
"two or three times the post-
ed speed limit.
"I drive with the windows
down, and I leaned out of
car," he said. "It alarmed me
because the truck was going
so fast. When I leaned out
and turned and looked, he
had just entered the intersec-
tion at the flashing light."
Holt said the truck then
veered to the driver's right
and "went up on two wheels
and then impacted the
bank."
After making a U-turn and
heading towards the scene,
Holt parked across the street
and ran over to help.
"The front of the vehicle
and the side of the bank were
burning pretty well," he said.
"The driver door was open,
and the ground was burning


from diesel fuel all over the
place."
Holt said Mixon was
"mostly out of the vehicle"
when he arrived, but "part of
his left leg was caught up in
the door of truck and hanging
partially out.
"I did what anybody
would do. I went over and
grabbed the guy, got him out
of the truck and dragged him
across the street to safety,"
Holt said.
Certified in CPR from his
days in the Army during the
Vietnam era, Holt yelled at a
passing vehicle to call 9-1-1 as
he attended to Mixon.
"He had a real strong
pulse. There were lacera-
tions in his scalp," Holt said.
"He never made a sound. He
coughed a little bit lying there,
and at one point in time, he
convulsed, so I turned him on
his side to make sure his air-
ways was clear."
Gay Nessly, an employee
of the BP service station cat-
tycorner to the bank, said she
was arriving to open up about
5 a.m. when she heard the ac-
cident.
"I heard two loud bangs,
boom, boom, and I thought
it was thunder," she said.
"Then I thought it wasn't
thunder."
Robert Lindsley, who lives
about a block away from the
crash site, said he was awake
reading when he heard what
sounded "like a combination

of a collision and an explo-
sion" coming from the street
below.
"I'm used to hearing the
trucks, but this was a differ-
ent sound,"' he said. "I looked
outside, and the flames were
just starting."
Both Lindsley and Nessly
called 9-1-1, and Apalachicola
First Responders and the vol-
unteer fire department were
on the scene in less than five
minutes.
Apalachicola Assistant
Chief George Watkins said
about 15 firefighters from his
department took part in the
fight, beginning about seven
minutes after the 9-1-1 call.
Also responding quickly
was Franklin County videog-
rapher Howard Reeder and
his daughter, Andrea, an em-
ployee of the bank. She said
she was alerted by her scan-
ner, and together the two
shot footage of Apalachicola
firefighters fighting the ini-
tial blaze.

Crews responded from St.
George Island, Carrabelle
and Eastpoint, bringing with
them eight trucks, includ-
ing two ladder trucks that
enabled better access to the
flames engulfing the sec-
ond story. One onlooker said
it took roughly an hour for
the first ladder truck to ar-
rive, which then enabled the
firefighters to direct water

downward into the flames.
Watkins said his crews
used their two pumpers to
shoot water at the flames,
which steadily ignited the
building and then erupted
into a roaring blaze.
"It could have been a lot
worse," he said.
Terry DuBose, chair-
man of the board of Coastal
Community Bank, said the
company would reopen
this week at a temporary
location in Apalachicola a
few blocks away. One of 11
Coastal Community Bank
locations, the Apalachicola
branch employs about two
dozen staffers.
He said the fire affected
only office space and dam-
aged neither the vault nor
safety deposit boxes.


"They're fine," he said.
"It didn't get in that part of
the building."
DuBose, who got word
of the blaze on the morning
of his 61st birthday, said an
architect has begun assess-
ing plans to rebuild on the
site, which Coastal acquired
in 2002 when it bought the
former Apalachicola State
Bank.
"There's nothing here
but a small inconvenience
to our employees and our
customers," he said. "But
if that wind would have got
up, it would have taken out a
whole city block.
"We're thankful," he said.
"Buildings can be replaced.
The Lord takes care of us.
We're going to rebuild newer
and nicer."


Mixon's record indicates
he has been involved in sev-
eral explosive incidents, one
of which was adjudicated
Nov 12 by Circuit Judge
James Hankinson.
In July 1992, he was ar-
rested for aggravated as-
sault, but that charge even-
tually was dropped.
On Aug. 31, Apalachicola
Sgt. Chet Turner arrested
him for public affray and two
counts of resisting arrest
with violence. On Nov. 12, he
was adjudicated guilty of af-
fray, ordered to pay $445 in
costs and sentenced to time
served, a day in jail.
Zack Craig, a bartender
at the Oasis, said Mixon has
been banned from the down-
town bar for the past two
months.
He said before Mixon was
barred, it seemed that "every
time he left the bar he was
going outside to fight." Craig
said he witnessed Mixon pull
"some kind of a gun-look-
ing thing, it wasn't a water
gun" during an altercation
on Market Street. He said in
order to disarm him, the po-
lice Tasered Mixon because
"it was the only way to calm
him down."
On Saturday evening, Nov.
8, Mixon was sitting in a car
near the corner of Market
Street and Avenue D when a
wedding party emerged from
a nearby restaurant to send
the bride and groom off on
their honeymoon.
Witnesses said Mixon ac-
costed a female member of
the wedding party and, when
confronted by the father of
the bride, struck him in the
face and fled. On the same
evening, Mixon was involved
in a fight in a nearby parking
lot.

Apalachicola State Bank to rebuild historic structure


As Apalachicola State
Bank (ASB) officials assess
the damage and begin plan-
ning to rebuild the Apalachic-
ola branch office severely
damaged in a fiery vehicle
crash last week, bank offi-
cials say they'd like the re-
construction effort to end up
resembling the original his-
toric bank building that once
stood on the site.
"We want to make sure
we rebuild one of the state's
oldest financial institutions
with the respect befitting this
bank's history and tradition in
the community," said Coastal
Community Bank President
Terry DuBose. "We're talking
with architects and poring
over old pictures of the bank
building that stood on this
spot as far back as the 1800s.
We're going to try and incor-
porate as many of the historic
features of the original bank
building as we can and still be
a modern, efficient facility."
ASB is owned by Coastal
Community Bank, based in
Panama City, with 11 branch
offices throughout Franklin,
Gulf and Bay counties.
The crash injured the
driver, destroyed the truck
and demolished much of the
bank's office and conference
area. The bank vaults and
safety deposit boxes were not

Donnie Gay, ASB senior

come empty out their safety

ment safety deposit box is
available to current custom-
ers at the Eastpoint branch
location.
Loan operations for the
Apalachicola office have
been moved to a temporary

Mortgage location). Teller

a mobile office is set up in the

operations are being handled
at the other branch offices
throughout the county.
Historic renovation is
nothing new to Coastal Com-
munity Bank. The Port St.
Joe branch is housed in the
historic "Chateau" building
in downtown Port St. Joe.
The building, purchased by
Coastal Community Bank in
2003, originally was built in
1939 as the local residence


widow of Alfred I. duPont
and sister of Ed Ball. Over
the years, the Chateau also
provided lodging for St. Joe
Paper Company executives.
In 1998, it was sold for a bed
and breakfast inn and later
was converted to the Coastal
Community Bank. Bank offi-
cials have maintained much
of the original character of
the building.

is also a historic preserva-
tion advocate in Bay County.

downtown St. Andrews His-
toric District was purchased,
renovated and reopened as a
CCB branch office in 2007.
The Apalachicola historic
reconstruction effort is be-
ing lauded by local historic
enthusiasts and community
leaders alike.
"Apalachicola State Bank
has always been a commu-
nity leader with a special
interest in preserving his-
tory in this community," said
Apalachicola Historic Soci-
ety President Bill Spohrer.
"We're obviously saddened
and shocked by the building's
damage and loss but thrilled
with the prospects of the
bank's historic restoration ef-
forts."
Apalachicola Mayor Van
Johnson said he is pleased at


what the reconstruction ef-
fort could mean to the city.
"The effort on the bank's
part to restore one of the
city's oldest landmarks to its
1900 appeal not only demon-
strates their profound un-
derstanding of history, but it
also shows a deep commit-
ment toward preserving the
character of the Apalachicola
community," Johnson said.
Reconstruction plans are
still weeks away, DuBose
said.
"A lot will depend on how
much we are able to salvage
of the building if any at all," he
said. "But we are committed
to rebuilding the structure in
a historically respectful man-
ner because we're committed
to the tradition and history of
the community."

Seniors saluted as Seahawks close out season


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

The Walton High School
Braves secured a winning
season Friday night, and
Franklin County a winless
one, with the Braves easily
downing the Seahawks 54-6.
Their ranks thinned by
injuries and defections by
some older players, the
Seahawks fielded a young
team, mainly underclass-
men, who promise to be for-
midable in the years ahead.
Senior quarterback Gene
Anderson continued to di-
rect the offense, but his
backfield of sophomores
Adam Joseph, Dale Butler
and James Winfield, and
junior DJ Lane all showed
that they had the drive and
dedication to persevere de-
spite a tough season finale.
An interception by Se-
ahawk junior Dustin Putnal
in the first play from scrim-
mage got the Seahawks fans
on the feet in their brand


new stadium in Eastpoint,
but Braves senior Deron
Hogans followed with one
his own a few minutes later
and the tide rose with the
Braves from there on out.
Midway through the first
quarter, senior running back
Isaac Jackson ran it in from
8 yards out for the first score.
Freshman kicker Alex Brack
then nailed the first of his six
extra points on the night.
Senior Tarrell Bramlet
hit Jackson on an 18-yard
touchdown pass with 2:07
left in the quarter, and a 14-0
Braves lead.
Jackson rushed for a 23-
yard score a few minutes lat-
er, and Bramlet hit Hogans
on an 8-yard TD pass, for
two more touchdowns. The
half ended with a 50-yard TD
scramble from Bramlett to
make it 34-0.
Bramlet went 7-for-12 for
the game, for 83 yards, and
carried the ball four times
for 59 yards. Jackson carried
five times for 58 yards, with
Walton gaining 177 yards on


12 carries. Hogans caught
three passes for 39 yards.

Senior saluted at halftime
The halftime ceremo-
nies, before a small but en-
thusiastic crowd, featured a
salute to all the Seahawks
seniors. On hand to receive
accolades were Quanteka
Croom, accompanied by par-
ents Jeff and Cydell Lockley;
Jamie Leigh Daniels, and
parents Greg and Evie Dan-
iels; Gene Anderson, with
Charles Anderson; Tomilee
Dowden, with grandfather
Tommy Jack Massey; Jared
Mock, with parents Mike and
Debbie Mock; Steven Babb,
with parents Fred and Tina
Babb; Patricia Golden, with
mom Jackie Golden; Kevin
Beasley, with parents Peggy
and Randy Beasley; Brit-
tany Hunnings, with parents
Carol Duval and Gary Hun-
nings; and Ryanna Lockley,
with parents Raymond and
Barbara Lockley.


The halftime ceremony
closed with the crowning
of Mr. and Miss Franklin
County High School, Jared
Mock and Alana Hutchins.
Because last year's Miss
FCHS, De'Iara Prince, is
away at college, this year's
homecoming queen, Jamie
Daniels, performed the
honor of placing the tiara
on Hutchins' head. Last
year's Mr. FCHS, Jeremiah
Mercer, a student at Gulf
Coast Community College,
placed the crown on Mock's
head.
The Seahawks got on the
board near the end of the
third quarter, with senior
quarterback Gene Ander-
son sneaking it in from 5
yards out. Sophomore Erix
Carranza's kick was no
good. The Seahawks are still
looking for their first ever
win at the new consolidated
school.
Sophomore quarter-
back Liam Miller threw two
touchdown passes early in
the fourth quarter, hitting


Oops, we goofed


In last week's story, the
Times made a glaring er-
ror.
The story reported that
the Jay Royals defeated
Franklin County on Nov. 7
by the score of 33-0.
The fact is that was the
halftime score. We relied
on an incorrect source for
our information.
The real story is that in
the second half, Franklin
County played their hearts
out and scored three un-
answered touchdowns.
Junior D.J. Lane
scored on a run from six
yards out in the third
quarter, and sophomore

senior Jack Nowling on a
7-yard strike and the junior
D'von Campbell on an 8-
yard hook-up.
Freshman Conona Tar-


Erix Carranza hit the ex-
tra point to make it 33-7.
Sophomore James
Winfield had a 70-yard
touchdown pass reception
from senior Quarterback
Gene Anderson in the
fourth quarter, but the ex-
tra point was blocked, to
make it 33-13.
Winfield scored his
second touchdown on the
night with a 15-yard pass
reception, and Carranza
kicked the extra point, to
make it 33-20.
The Times apologizes
to the entire team and to
all Seahawks fans for the
error.

rant wrapped up the Braves
scoring when he scooped
up an errant fumble at the
Seahawks' 35-yard line and
ran it in for the score.

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

On Nov. 10, Gulf-Frank-
lin Center proudly hosted a
graduation ceremony for a
group of special students.
Six students of English as a
Second Language (ESOL)
received certificates for com-
pleting 72 hours of study.
Honored were Beatriz
Castillo, Mirian Barahoma,
Maria Torres, all of Apala-
chicola, and Oscar Aguilar,
Guillermo Mendez and Isa-
bel Morales, all of Port St.


Joe. Three students, Cas-
tillo, Mendez and Morales,
moved up a level, completing
their entire textbook. "These
people have done exception-
ally well moving up a whole
level," said instructor Nancy
Montanez. "What they have
completed in eight weeks
takes some people a year."
Eric Bidwell, coordinator for
Gulf Coast's ESOL program,
was on hand for the gradu-
ation. He said that ESOL is
seeking to expand. "Our only
issue is attendance. We are
trying for 15 students next
term. We have the funding if


we can only get the students.
We will now have classes both
at the Gulf Franklin Campus
and at St. Patrick's Catholic
Church in Apalachicola," he
said. "Please come back," he
told the graduates. "This is
my hometown and I want this
class to be successful."
He said the class and text-
books are free of charge and
anyone can attend. Three-
hour classes are held three
times a week for eight weeks.
Class spokesperson Castillo
offered gratitude to Bidwell
and Montanez. "Thank you
very much for the opportu-
nity. I hope I will be here next
year too." After diplomas
were awarded, the students
sat down to a feast prepared
by the class, their friends and
instructor.
For immigrants, learn-
ing English can mean better
employment and easier com-
munication with neighbors,
health care workers and gov-
ernment officials. To join a
class to study English, please

Project Riverway South offers ways to revitalize

the look and feel of downtown Apalachicola


ON THE '- '
WATERFRONT: --
This option for what is
now Veterans Park includes
vertical gardens and raised plcir-lers
with seating wJals. Unique t.::: is d- es r
is a rectangular fountain, which bcIl ces o l I h-e
Christmas Tree. The space is gernerdiy very .pern, miir,-
taining the loose feel of the park. The simple rectangular
forms mimic the overall shape of the site; their relationship
to each other, floating in the park, is reminiscent of boats on
the water.


After months of
creative analysis,
the University of
Georgia's Project Riv-
erway South earlier this month
unveiled a 60-page report that
promises a bushel full of ideas for
revitalizing the look and feel of
downtown Apalachicola.
Funded with a $15,000 alloca-
tion from the city, the project's
team of college students, led by
Danny Bivins and Leigh Askew,
came to town for three days in
June and visited spots all through-
out downtown, taking walking
tours led by representatives of the
chamber of commerce, the city
and interested organizations.
They met with citizens who
provided their own pet ideas and
they visited with city officials.
They sketched and they jotted
and they listened and they ab-
sorbed.
They came down from the
University of Georgia's Fanning
Institute as well as School of
Environmental Design, Odum
School of Ecology, the Center for
Community Design and Pres-
ervation and the Grady College
of Journalism and Mass Com-
munication.
"These partnerships dis-
cover ways to revitalize
this region economi-
cally through its largest
asset, the river," the /
project's backers said.
"The solutions formulated /
by students during the ser-
vice learning course provide

the area with real,
implementable tools and
products. Communities
receive work they oth-
erwise could not afford
and students obtain real-
world experience that positively
impacts communities in need."
The project focuses on eco-
nomic development, including
affordable housing, downtown
redevelopment and community
amenities.
For the past two years, Project
Riverway has studied the Up-
per Chattahoochee River, from
Columbus to Eufaula and Fort
Gaines, and this year studied the
communities of the lower portion,
from Chattahoochee to Apala-
chicola.
Apalachicola City Administra-
tor Betty Webb said the next step
is going to get citizens involved
and to decide which ideas the city
wants to pursue.
"This is a first step in a vision-
ing process," she said. "It's an
important steppingstone in Apala-
chicola's future."
The Riverway designs have
been on display both at the Apala-
chicola Museum of Art
and City Hall.
// The full report is
/available to the public
on CD by contacting
City Hall. Or it can be

Innovative

violinist to

open uIlse

Newell series

Australian-born violinist Mark
Russell will open the 2008-09 Ilse
Newell Fund for the Performing
Arts concert series on Sunday, Nov.
23.
The first of the season's eight
concerts will begin at 4 p.m. and will
be held in the sanctuary of Trinity
Episcopal Church in Apalachicola.
The concert series is sponsored
by the not-for-profit Apalachicola
Area Historical Society, which is
dedicated to preserving and shar-
ing the rich history of Apalachicola
and its surrounding area.
The concert series continues
with the Community Christmas
program on Dec. 14, anchored by
the Bay Area Choral Society; the
Trio Internazionale featuring Mar-
tha and Luciano Gherardi, and
Bedford Watkins, on Jan. 11; and
Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra
harpists Mary Brigid Roman and
Jamie Gossett on Jan. 23.
In 2009, vocalist Jill Anna Po-
nasik will perform Feb. 8, with the
Bay Area Choral Society performing
March 8, and the McLain, Watkins
and Eckstine families on March 29.
The series will close with an April
26 concert in Lafayette park, featur-
ing the Orange Avenue Pan Groove
Band.
This Sunday's concert will fea-
ture violinist, composer, and teach-
er Mark Russell, who began study-
ing violin at the Victorian College
of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia.
In his late teens, he became inter-
ested in Jazz, Blues and traditional
music from Ireland and Australia.
Joining The Sundowners in 1983, he
toured around the world and began
to incorporate musical styles from
India, China, and Indonesia into his
compositions and improvisations.
He performed in front of stadium
crowds with the Sundowners dur-
ing a three-month tour as opening
act for Dire Straits in 1986.
Meanwhile, his interest in Jazz
and Blues grew through direct con-
tact with artists such as Stephane
Grappelli and Brownie McGhee.
In 1991 he left the Sundowners and
moved to Paris, where he contin-
ued to explore diverse venues for
violin performance in theater and
clubs. Moving to America in 1994,
he formed the groups Paris Match,
and Ekyo, recording CDs with both.
He was a featured artist with
the Phat Cat, a Soul/R&B group,
whose touring included The House
of Blues in New Orleans and in
Chicago, Capitol Jazz Festival in
Washington D.C., and The Tom
Joyner Fantastic Voyage. His Phat
Cat backed performance of Ain't No
Sunshine was an R&B hit in 2000
and was recently included on the
Atlantic records compilation Rare
Requests.
Increasingly involved with stu-
dio work, performance art, and film
music, Russell in 1999 produced a
CD of unaccompanied solo impro-
visations, and with Ekyo, Earth
Music a CD of compositions and im-
provisations for violin, didgeridoo
and percussion. In 2001 he was in-
vited to perform at the Max-Planck-
Institut in Bonn, Germany, and at
the Centre International de Ren-
contres Math6matiques in Luminy,
France. For these performances he
conceived an ongoing project to ex-
press the process of mathematical
discovery through music, and plans
to produce a CD based on this con-
cept. Also that year he appeared
with mime theater group Odoroka
in a special performance for the
delegates of the U.N. International
Conference for the Environment in
Bonn, Germany.
He recorded music for the Vic-
tor Nunez film Coastlines, shot in
Franklin County, and composed and
performed music for the short film
Reflections produced by Danish
artist Mikkel Urup.

A Return to


Nashville

After several years of leaving an
indelible mark on the city of Apala-
chicola, in good deeds more than
one, Susan Turner will return to her
old home of Nashville, Tennessee.
We'd like to thank her for her
great concern in known and untold
endeavors in assisting the area's
many homeless felines and canines.
We'd also like to thank her, and all the
folks of the Dixie Theatre, for bring-
ing Nashville's
country music
and songwriters
here in engag-
ing semi-annual

r, sure Susan will
spend some of
her time here,
too; we'd miss
her too much if
SUSAN TURNER she didn't!
Melicent
Remy and Hollie Stott
Michaelin Reamy Watts and
Dave Watts

The following is a poem in her
honor, written by Melicent:

On this raw day of demolition,
Half the block speaks of the un-
lasting,
Haunting vision of change.

But still the Dixie
With a new and colorful face
Projects its solid venue.

In this great old hall,
First you came,
With country on your mind
And the entourage to prove it.

The unaffected natural,
The lady of Nashville now
Mixed with honky-tonk and get
down
Blues in the belly
And laughter on her mind -
Skirt kicking' and blowing' in the
wind.

Your legacy clear and depthful -
In time some of us will drift
away, too.
Meanwhile, cats and dogs hold
multitudinous
Hoedown honeymoons in toast to
you:
Hats off and tails wagging!
You've touched so many of their
lives
And ours.

Come back when the sky is clear,
The sun glowing, and water flow-
ing.
Dance on the beach once again.
We'll be waiting, Gal,
So many of us with arms open -
And bring those country friends!

Now kick your heels and make
trails;
Hit the road,
And let the wind blow.

Your mark is here,
Indelible and clear:
On the river, in the sand,
As the goddess voice
Of dogs and cats on the land.

Shouting justice in the hall,
Or in a show offun,
After a whole week's work is
done.
A good chapter made
This time well meant,
And well spent.

H. Melicent Riemy

METHODIST BAZAAR OFFERS BARGAINS



























PHOTO BY LOIS SWOBODA
A HANDMADE GEM: This handmade nativity scene, created by
Rita and Fred Sawyer, was on sale at the First United Methodist
Holiday Bazaar Saturday. Event coordinator Rita Sawyer said
that this year's fete was a great success, with shoppers picking
up bargains on splendid holiday decor, baked goods and gently
used yard sale items. Over 100 lunches were served, and about
$4,500 was raised, to be used to fund youth programs and pay
for building maintenance and repairs. "We appreciate all of the
support from the community," she said. Tickets may be purchased
by calling Missy Miller at 927-2088 or 653-9530.



Activities abound in


Lanark Village


Have you been to the Le-
gion on Friday nights yet?
What a deal! Very good ham-
burgers and fries with all the
garnish. You really ought to
try them. Also, Wednesday
and Saturday is pizza night

dinners. Yum yum! All serv- LANAR
ing starts at 5 p.m. Come on Jim'
down! Enjoy the delicious
food, shoot some pool, play
shuffleboard, bar bingo, or just enjoy
your favorite beverage, and visit with
your friends.
Well, if you didn't enjoy last Satur-
day at the Fall Festival, it's your own
fault. We had a nice crowd, despite
the weather. Thank you for your sup-
port and for the help, and the band.
Did you happen to notice the new
bulletin boards outside the hall while
you were at the festival? I came
across them one day and Barbara
Lasher and I carried them back to
the hall. J.R. Quaas and his father-in-
law, Gary Mueller, took down the old
ones. They are on the wall of the post
office now. J.R. and Gary remounted
the new bulletin boards outside the
hall.
Please refrain from putting no-

tices on the windows at the
post office and use the boards
inside.
Thank you and thanks to
J.R. and Gary.
Don't forget the lunch at
the Senior Center this after-
noon. It will be our annual
Thanksgiving dinner, dedi-
cated to the memory of Julia


Mae Putnal. Serving begins
at noon. See ya there.
We still have breakfast every day
except Thursday, Saturday, and Sun-
day. We still need volunteers in the
kitchen.
There will be Bingo for the Bus
at Chillas Hall, Wednesday, Nov. 26,
starting at 6:30 p.m. Put that turkey
in the oven, and come join the fun.
Who knows? You might win a game
or two!
If you see Herb and Joyce Napora
out and about, wish them a Happy
25th. Their anniversary is Nov. 26.
They are looking forward to their
50th. Hang in there, you two!
Be kind to one another and check
in on the sick and housebound.
Until next time. God bless Amer-
ica, our troops, the poor, homeless,
and hungry.

the Martin House have coordinated
the "Franklin County Christmas Toy
Connection" which includes all of
Franklin County.
This is a project they established
to secure and distribute toys at
Christmas to children who would not
otherwise have a Christmas. Last
year, they provided toys to approx-
imately 225 children age birth to 13
years.
This year, a committee, spon-
sored by St. Patrick's Catholic
Church, the First United Methodist
Churches (Apalachicola, Eastpoint,
St. George Island) and Trinity Epis-
copal Church, has been established
to assist in this effort.
Trinity's Kay Wheeler is the chair-
person.
Distribution of toys will occur
at the Armory in Apalachicola on
Thursday, Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. until
4 p.m. and on Friday, Dec. 12 from 9to
11 a.m.
All families signing up for the


Franklin County Christmas Toy Con-
nection must sign up at either the
Apalachicola or Carrabelle Health
Department by MONDAY, DEC. 1.
For more info, call 653-9550.
The information below is needed
to determine the eligibility of the
household to receive age appropri-
ate toys and clothes for children
through the Christmas Toy Connec-
tion. Families must provide the fol-

Before. Do I look like a porcupine? After. The new me! Notice the diamond
collar.


Susan McClendon wrote this about her
dog Baby, a rescue adopted from the local
shelter that has brought great joy into the
McClendon's lives.
I was working the St. George Light-
house booth at the Oyster Spat Festival
two years ago. At the time I had a healthy,
wonderful baby dog that was the heart
of both my husband and me. The people
working the Franklin County shelter booth
were doing a fabulous job of socializing the
dogs they had at their booth. One of the
volunteers brought this short, scraggly,
adorable dog by our booth and she imme-


diately appointed me to be her new Mama
(the dog that is). She looked into my eyes
and said "You're it"
Shortly after, my wonderful, precious
Love died from what we believe to be dog
food associated problems. That short,
scraggly, adorable dog was still waiting
for us at the shelter. She came home with
us and has filled a giant hole in our hearts.
Today, she is every bit as much a part of
our family and makes every single day bet-
ter! She never lets us fuss, be lonely or
unentertained and she knows she made a
good choice too. Let this happen to you!

Flemings find trumpeter father at WW II museum


A group shot of the 337th Regimental Army Services Band, taken in the 1 940s at Camp Gordon Johnston.


Thomas Fleming, Jr. and his broth-
er Raoul from Philadelphia, PA were
in visiting their aunt, Grace O'Neal, in
Apalachicola last month and had heard
about the Camp Gordon Johnston Mu-
seum in Carrabelle. They had been
looking forward for some time to vis-
iting the museum because they knew
their father, Thomas Fleming, Sr., had
served at the camp as a musician.
Upon entering the museum they
spotted a photo and description of the
337th Regimental Army Services Band
posed outside one of the barracks. Upon
close examination Raoul exclaimed:
"There's Dad!" Thomas took a closer
look and excitedly agreed. Proudly
holding his trumpet in the second row
was a young Thomas Fleming, Sr.
While visiting Apalachicola, Thom-
as met, courted and married Grace's
sister and, after his discharge, took
her home to Philadelphia. Thomas


went on to play with the big bands dur-
ing the 1940's including the renowned
Count Basie Orchestra. Growing up in
the Fleming household, the two Flem-
ing boys got to meet many top musi-
cians who came to visit and stay at
their house. Notably, one of these was
jazz trumpeter "Dizzy" Gillespie, but
also many musicians from the Duke
Ellington orchestra. On one occasion
they also met bandleader Count Basie
himself.
Their aunt is a member of St.
Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in
Apalachicola and is a precious fountain
of historical knowledge of events and
families of Franklin County. Museum
volunteers were as excited in meet-
ing her as they were her two nephews.
O'Neal also remembered that the band
would come to Apalachicola and per-
form at the USO club there. She also
remembered being taken on rides in


Thomas Fleming, Sr.


the DUKWs that were piloted by Afri-
can-American soldiers training at the
camp.

Bev Hewitt, above, co-
owner of the Apalachicola
Seafood Grill at Market
Street and Avenue E in
Apalachicola, flashes a
handful of building check
tickets at this month's city
commission meeting. At
last month's meeting Hewitt
voiced concerns about an
overnight break-in to the
restaurant that hadn't been
detected by police before
employees came in the fol-
lowing morning to open.
Since then, Apalachicola
police have stepped up
their traditional practice
of monitoring of downtown
buildings, leaving slips that
indicate when the premises
were checked and by which
officer.

Special FWC detail for hunting season


Officers from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion's Division of Law Enforce-
ment policed the opening of
small game season earlier this
month.
On Nov 7 through 9, Officers
Woody Cook, Steven Cook, TYa-
vis Huckeba, Don Walker, John
Allen, Chasen Yarborough, and
Lt. Charlie Wood conducted
a special detail to coincide
with the opening weekend of
small game season in Franklin
County. Officers patrolled the
Apalachicola, Ochlockonee, and
Crooked Rivers and their tribu-
taries.
Education and enforce-
ment attention was directed
toward boating under the influ-
ence of alcohol, vessel safety
equipment, vessel navigational
lights, vessel overloading, hunt-
ing licenses, management area
permits, and bag limits for
small game. During the detail,
57 vessels were boarded and


128 users were inspected.
The inspections produced
three uniform boating cita-
tions for insufficient number of
personal flotation devices and
improper navigational lights
and nine written warnings for
various boating safety equip-
mentviolations. The inspections
also produced two resource
citations for no valid resident
hunting license, no valid resi-
dent freshwater fishing license,
and one written warning for
possession of undersized fish.
On Nov 10, Officers Mike
Slotin and Faris Livesay con-
ducted inspections of com-
mercial oyster harvesters and
their vessels in Apalachicola
Bay. The officers boarded seven
vessels inspecting vessel safety
equipment, saltwater product
licenses and size tolerance on
the harvested oysters.
One resource citation was
issued to a harvester for pos-
session of undersized oysters.


The bag of oysters inspected
contained over 38 percent un-
dersized oysters. Nine written
warnings were also issued to
other harvesters for violations
pertaining to vessel safety
equipment.
On Nov. 8, Officer Benjamin
Johnson was patrolling the
Bradwell Unit of the Wildlife
Management Area in Liberty
County when he stopped two
hunters in a pickup truck. John-
son checked the two subjects
and asked them if they had any
luck, and they replied, "No."
He asked them to open the
tonneau cover of the truck so
it could be inspected for wild-
life. The driver said "Might as
well get me now, because I've
messed up."
Johnson found one spike
buck taken with a shotgun dur-
ing archery season. Proper ci-
tations were issued. Buckshot,
two shotguns and the deer were
taken as evidence.

Auditions set for Panhandle Players production of "The Star Spangled Girl"


The Panhandle Players will hold au-
ditions for their late January produc-
tion of Neil Simon's comedy "The Star
Spangled Girl," on Monday and Tuesday,
Dec. 1 and 2, at 6 p.m., at the Eastpoint
Firehouse.
"The Star Spangled Girl" features three
young people in their Salad Days, meaning


"their days of youthful inexperience." Andy
and Norman are agitated young men who
run Protest magazine out of their apart-
ment.
Norman does the writing, while Andy
fends off the creditors. Then, a "girl"
moves in next door: she is an Olympic
swimmer, she is from Arkansas, and her


name is Sophie.
One of the agitated young men is posi-
tively smitten; the other is too busy to no-
tice. Sophie knows the magazine is subver-
sive, but that guy that diverts the landlady
has diverted her attentions. People do the
silliest things when they're in that famous
triangle.


The script calls for one woman and two
men. Candidates will read from the script.
Anyone interested in helping as stage crew,
lighting, sound effects, costuming or props
is encouraged to attend the auditions to
sign up.
Contact Dan Wheeler, the director, at
927-5067 for more information.


CLEAN SWEEP














LOIS SWOBODA I Staff writer

CLEANING THE CAUSEWAY: On Saturday morning,
members of the Philaco conservation committee
cleaned up the west end of the causeway
between Eastpoint and Apalachicola. They
collected 28 bags of trash in three hours. Philaco,
the woman's club of Franklin County, is one of
the 12 oldest women's clubs in Florida. This year,
the conservation committee is focusing its efforts
on maintaining the causeway and supporting the
humane society.
