plan irks



citizens

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

On Nov. 27, the board of
the Northwest Florida Trans-
portation Corridor Author-
ity met at the courthouse in
Apalachicola to hear public
comment on the proposed
evacuation route to be con-
structed north of US 98.
What they heard was not
music to their ears.
Residents demanded
more information on pro-
posed road construction and
refuted the authority's pro-
cedures and data during the
meeting.
The evacuation route, as
depicted on their Web site
and on pamphlets distributed
by the authority, includes a
corridor through Tate's Hell
from St. Teresa to Eastpoint
through the relict dunes just
south of the existing power
lines. Also proposed is the
conversion of West Bayshore
Drive to a through street
joining the corridor north of
Eastpoint.
Citizens are concerned
with the environmental im-
pact of building a high-speed
two-lane road through state
and federal park land and
that the northern route will
funnel tourists away from
the county. Residents of Bay-
shore fear their quiet resi-
dential street will become a
shortcut for tourists.
About 40 Franklin County
residents were on hand. At
their last Franklin County
meeting held in Carrabelle,
the authority brought slick
flyers and out-of-date maps to
present their case to the pub-
lic. This time, they brought
nothing but an agenda.
When attendees request-
ed to see a map of the pro-
posed roads, they were told
to consult the Internet.
"How can we intelligently
discuss this when we have
nothing to discuss?" one
woman asked.
"Nothing has changed
except we're lining up some
federal and state bureaucrats
on this project," Chairman
Randall McElheney said.
The board discussed ear-
marking tolls from a portion
of the road for environmental
mitigation and prepared to
vote on the issue.
"Can there be some pub-
lic discussion on this before
you vote?" County Commis-
sioner Pinki Jackel asked.
Looking nonplussed,
McElheney answered: "We
have a protocol that we ask
the public to wait on their
comments until the board
completes its discussion, but
we can table this vote until
after public comment. We
don't want the discussion to
become segmented."

Jackel disputes point of
procedure
Next, the board prepared
to vote to approve the invoic-
es. One bill was from HDR
Engineering of Panama City
for a feasibility study of alter-
native routes and strategies

BUILDING REVIVAL: The Holy Family Center soon will become a senior center.


Holy Family revival


State to fund $1.5 million

senior center on site

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

The 80-year-old Holy Family Center in Apala-
chicola, long the focal point of Roman Catholic
outreach to the African-American community,
will be revived as a senior/community center be-
ginning next year, thanks to a $1.5 million state
grant from the Florida Department of Elder Af-
fairs.
Crist and Department of Elder Affairs Sec-
retary E. Douglas Beach announced the grants
Friday in Miami when they were breaking


New faces


take helm


of schools

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

County Judge Van Russell
swore in Nina Marks as the
new superintendent of schools
Nov. 18, as well as two new
school board members, George
Thompson for District 1 and
Carl Whaley for District 5.
Thompson replaces Denise
Butler in a seat he held before
stepping down four years ago,
after serving from 2000 to 2004.
For Whaley, it's a first-time
opportunity, as he followed
John Richards, who decided
not to seek re-election after one
term.
And for Nina Marks, it's a
chance to hit the ground run-
ning in a new post, after defeat-
ing Republican Denise Butler
and former State Represen-
tiave Will Kendrick, who ran
without party affiliation, in the
three-way race.
"I was kind of surprised how
it came out as far as the distri-
bution of votes, but of course
I was pleased by the results,"
she said. The new job pays
$90,928 per year.
"I've already put in several
days basically on special as-
signment so I can get my feet
wet," Marks said a few days af-
ter winning the Nov. 4 general


ground for the Little Havana Activities and Nu-
trition Centers.
The Miami project will receive $2 million to
build its center, as will another in Alachua Coun-
ty, while the Apalachicola project will get $1.5
million.
The grants are part of $10 million in grants,
for amounts of up to $2 million each, authorized
by the 2008 Legislature. The grants will be used
for new construction, repairs and maintenance
at senior centers around the state. A similar
round of grants totaling $9.1 million also was
awarded during the 2007-08 fiscal year.
The city of Apalachicola used Florida Forever
money, targeted for water reuse, to obtain the
Holy Family building four years ago from the
archdiocese. The church closed the school in
the late 1960s when it desegregated the Apala-
chicola Catholic community and then later kept
the facility open as a community center until it

election.
Following her victory, Marks
met with superintendents from
the nine-county area and later
attended three-day training in
Orlando for the Florida Associ-
ation of District School Super-
intendents.
It was there she learned she
was not alone, as there are 30
new superintendents in Flori-
da's 67 counties.
"We have a huge list of
things to do in Franklin County,
but most everyone wants to see
better communication and con-
sistency," she said. "I'm already
working with people on trying


to correct some of that."
Marks said she's going to
take her time to find a perfect
fit for the new principal job, tar-
geting someone who plans to
stay here long-term.
"I think right now, we need
to keep the least amount of
turning everything upside-
down, and the things that are
calm right now, we can work
around them and make an
easier transition into things we
need to address first," she said.
"I want to take the time to see
if we can find someone who will
be part of one of the communi-
ties in the district. I don't want
to jump into anything real fast.
I think we need someone who's
going to come in and be part of
us, the community, even when
they're not in school."
Interim principal Nick
O'Grady remains on the job,

no longer could be operated safely.
Over the last four years, the city has redou-
bled its efforts to secure funding to preserve and
revive the center, working closely with Bert Ivey,
who directs the county's Elder Care of Franklin
County program, currently headquartered in
Carrabelle.
The latest proposal includes a component
devoted to African-American cultural history, of
which the Holy Family Center was an integral
part dating back to 1920, when African-Ameri-
can nuns from New Orleans first came to town
to operate the Holy Family School.
"When I got the grant news I was excited,"
said Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson, who him-
self attended the school up through the third
grade.
"This is something the city has long been

Mixon charged


with mischief,


grand theft


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor


Joseph Lee Mixon was arrested Thurs-
day and charged with three felonies in con-
nection with slamming a seafood truck
into the Apalachicola State Bank branch in
downtown Apalachicola in the early morning
hours of Nov. 15.
At a first appearance Nov. 21, County
Judge Van Russell set a $250,000 bond for
Mixon, 43, who is being held
at the Franklin County Jail.
Public defender Kevin Stei-
ger was assigned to handle
^his case.
Mixon was charged with
i Three third-degree felonies,
grand theft of a motor vehicle,
JOSEPH MIXON and two counts of criminal
mischief. Each charge car-
ries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
The grand theft charge stems from Mixon
having driven, without permission or autho-
rization and for personal use, a 1997 Peterbilt
truck valued at $95,000.
Tommy Ward, owner of 13 Mile Seafood,
told Ronnie Segree, investigator with the
sheriff's office, that Mixon had been rid-
ing the route for a couple weeks with driver
Johnny Pace and that he was scheduled to
take over once he learned it.
On the Friday before the incident. Ward
said he allowed Mixon to drive the truck and

Panhandle Players shine in 'Odd Couple'


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Last weekend, the Dixie The-
atre showed what happens when
you mix a great script with a stage
full of veteran actors.
The Panhandle Players' open-
ing show, the female version of
"The Odd Couple" that Neil Simon
created after he writing his origi-
nal masterpiece, was a joy to be-
hold, a masterful pairing of two of
the area's premier leading ladies.
Adelle Hungerford as a seeth-
ing, stomping, frenetic Olive Madi-
son, hungry for a man, and Margy
Oehlert as a fretful neat freak Flor-
ence Ungar, troubled by the break-
up of her marriage, were as good
as it gets. The two brought a rare
energy, a well-timed and well-ma-
neuvered interplay and an evok-
ing of character that didn't miss a
beat. They brought to life man's, I
mean woman's, eternal struggle
between control and spontaneity,
between compulsive order and lib-
erating abandon, and it was wise
and hilarious to watch.
Memorable, too, were the two
men in the show, Royce Rolstad
III and Hank Kozlowsky, as Jesus
and Manolo Costazuela, the two
Latin brothers who live upstairs.
The comic duo drew some of the
biggest laughs in the show as they
stumbled through the English lan-
guage in wooing the two ladies.
Three little words apply: flat-out
funny.
The four Trivial Pursuit-playing
ladies provided the perfect touch-
es to the show, with their running
commentary on their two friends.

center, shares news of
her pregnancy. Below

Florence Ungar, waits
worriedly on the couch to
meet the two Costazuela
brothers.


Cathy Watts, Laura Baney and
Beverly Kelley were superb, but
special mention has to go to Ann
Cowles and her comic ability to go
against everyone's grain.
Director Pam Vest, production
assistant Liz Sisung, Dan Wheeler
and his set construction crew, and
all those dedicated crew members
who worked behind the scene all
deserve a round of applause for a
job well done.
This show kicked the Panhan-
dle Players' reputation up a notch,
and we will be expecting more of
the same for the second two shows
of the season.
Because a woman's, and a
man's, work is never done.

We share



thanks, even



in times of loss


We share thanks, even in
times of loss
With my apologies to T.S.
Eliot, it's not April that is the
cruelest month. It is Novem-
ber.
I adore Seafood Festival
and the church and fam-
ily traditions involved. I work
with the ladies (and now
gentlemen) in the church
kitchen putting together our
crab casserole luncheon. Old


friends gather and tell
stories of our youth.
A good time is had by
all.


The end of the ~.A
month never fails to ,
deliver a resounding '..;
kick in the pants. It
began in 1963. I was
on the playground af- REDI
ter lunch when I no- AND
ticed all of the teach- Deni
ers hovering around
a radio. The bell rang,
and we went back to class.
The intercom informed us
the president had been shot.
About 20 minutes later, the
intercom told us the presi-
dent was dead.
I do remember some kids
whooping with joy, but most
of us simply were stunned.
We asked out teachers ques-
tion after question. They did
their best to remain calm and
provide us with as many an-
swers as they could. We were
babies at age 11, but we knew
about the Bay of Pigs and
had feared nuclear war dur-
ing the Cuban Missile Crisis.
This assassination rocked
our world.
I remember going with
Mama to the A & P after
school. People were speak-
ing in whispers. There was
no context for what had hap-
pened.
We were glued to our
television sets, desperate for
each new piece of news as
history unfolded.
Saturday morning was
cold and rainy. I lay in my bed
listening to Daddy getting
dressed in front of the heater.
He had promised to take the
12-year-old son of his boss,
Bob Ingle, for a day of squir-
rel hunting up the river. At
around two, Mother started
being distracted. Closer to
three, we looked out the win-
dow to see my Aunt Dolores
and my grandmother, John-
ny, coming to the front door.
There had been an acci-
dent, they said. Daddy was
thrown from the boat round-
ing Four Tree Cut Off. The
child in the boat, as well as
Uncle Louis Roux and An-


W
SR
se I


thony Taranto in the second
boat, had not been able to
find him. His life jacket was
wet from the rain, and he had
not put it on.
Louis and Anthony had
scuba gear, and they found
the body the next day, almost
24 hours later.
Years after, in 1997, my
mother breathed her last on
Nov. 30, after a debilitating
fight with brain cancer.
I don't seek sym-
pathy. We have all had
S to face death and then
I find a way to keep put-
, ting one foot in front of
the other. We mourn
but we also move on.
We somehow find it in
us to celebrate.
HITE Even after the
OUX death of my father, we
Roux loaded up and went to
the farm for Thanks-
giving. My mom's
sister and her husband had a
few hundred acres outside of
Ocala. We could look forward
to early mornings of crack-
ling fires, sausage sizzling in
the kitchen, and then a glori-
ous dinner when the hunters
came back in.
My aunt had married a
man from New Jersey, so
we had Yankee Dressing (no
cornbread, only white bread),
but that was the only down-
side. There was turkey, Uncle
John insisted on the drum-
stick, mashed potatoes, veni-
son, cole slaw, sweet potato
casserole, green beans, and
pies, glorious pies, pumpkin
and mincemeat. Plus the
cakes, Italian cream, pound,
carrot, and chocolate.
Traditions have changed
over the years. Now, Thanks-
giving is catered. But, we still
gather in the kitchen. Some-
one has to make the cole
slaw the way we remember
it. I bring oysters, some years
to make a casserole, but this
year I will fry them as appetiz-
ers. My sister always brings
Mother's pimento cheese.
This particular group of
relatives only gathers once
a year, but we know our roles
and responsibilities. We are
very different people, but
we are family. So, we sit and
share food together.
We give thanks for what we
have, and remember those
we have lost. I believe that is
the message for this holiday.

Apalachicola River, Bay at tipping point


By Dan Tonsmeire
Apalachicola Riverkeeper

The Apalachicola River and Bay
boast the greatest biodiversity of any
river system in North America and
the highest productivity of any estu-
ary.
The Apalachicola system has been
designated a Biosphere Reserve by
the United Nations, a National Es-
tuarine Research Reserve by the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, a Biological Hotspot
by the The Nature Conservancy and
a Florida Emerald Coast BioGem by
NRDC.
And yet, the lack of adequate fed-
eral and state policy on instream flow
has left the Apalachicola's future
hanging in the balance. Endangered
mussels and sturgeon are threatened
as is the legendary Apalachicola oys-
ter along with the livelihoods of com-
mercial fishermen whose families
have worked on the river and bay for
generations.
These facts have proven of
little consequence to Georgia state
officials and the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, who continue efforts to
take more water out of the Apalachic-
ola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) river
system, which drains 19,600 square
miles down 890 miles of three ma-
jor rivers through three states, from
the Smokey Mountains to the Gulf of
Mexico.
Even more is at stake. The Flint
River suffers withdrawals for agricul-
tural irrigation that can reduce side
streams to a trickle. Proposals for fed-
eral water supply dams on the Flint
will destroy habitat, threaten fish and
unwind the cultural heritage of many
Georgians.
Threats to the continued health of
the system also occur along a section
of the Chattahoochee River, protected
as a National Scenic Recreation Area.
The 100-mile reach suffers water qual-
ity hits from flow reductions designed
by Georgia and enabled by the Corps
to hold water in an upstream reser-
voir for water supply.
Three Riverkeeper organizations
are working together to protect these
rivers for present and future gen-
erations. The Upper Chattahoochee
Riverkeeper leads the fight in north
Georgia for water conservation to
reduce use and maintain adequate in-
stream flow. The newly formed Flint
Riverkeeper is setting up to battle


PRE-DAM FLOWS: This chart shows the difference in pre-dam flows between
dry years and drought years.


dams that powerful interests in north
Georgia want on the Flint.
Apalachicola Riverkeeper is work-
ing with Florida Congressman Allen
Boyd and Sen. Bill Nelson, who are
sponsoring legislation that would
fund a National Research Council
study of instream-flow needs on the
ACF system and establish a reason-
able estimate for the ACE The study's
findings could then be the basis for
precedent-setting federal legislation
to protect instream-flow needs not
just for the Apalachicola but for rivers
across America. At the heart of all the
effort is sustaining flows for healthy
rivers.
Determining an accurate mea-
sure of instream-flow quantities that
will sustain a healthy river is critical
to establishing a defensible position.
Whether in litigation or negotiation,
sound science must back demand
for instream flows. Determining flow
needs on the Apalachicola, which
fluctuates between 5,000 and 300,000
cubic feet per second with wide varia-
tions annually and seasonally, can be
complex.
Apalachicola Riverkeeper worked
with experts to develop estimates
of water flow before the four
federally funded dams on the Chat-
tahoochee River were built to serve
as a baseline in an environmental
impact statement. Rainfall and flows
were analyzed in the post-dam
period for the drought period,


disproving claims that the reser-
voirs have enhanced post-dam low
flows.
Researchers say that the Apala-
chicola is at a tipping point. The flood-
plain lost more than four million trees
and hundreds of miles of fish habitat
in dried-up sloughs because too much
water is being taken from the ACF
system to sustain the Apalachicola
River and Bay. As a result, this year's
commercial seafood harvest was a
fraction of past years, threatening the
economic lifeblood of local communi-
ties.
Georgia has passed a water plan
that relies on outdated measurements
that protect only the lowest portion
of the flow regime. Florida has docu-
mented impacts from reduced flows,
but declined to develop instream-flow
needs.
Right now the best and, perhaps,
the last hope is that a timely Act of
Congress will sustain the Apalachico-
la. Without action, the whole river sys-
tem as we know it, one of America's
truly great natural treasures, could
be lost.

Dan Tonsmeire was recruited to
fill the Riverkeeper position for the
Apalachicola Riverkeeper in Feb.
2004. Before that he spent 15 years
as a water resource planner with the
Northwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District. You can reach him at

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

Three weeks ago, I was walking
my dogs on a deserted beach and
noticed my German Shepherd was
not with the pack, so to speak. I
looked around and found him bound-
ing up from the rear. He stumbled
and I knew at once something was
wrong.
When we arrived home, Shepp re-
fused to eat and went to my bed where
he sat crying with a raised forepaw. I
examined the foot and found it very
tender but with no apparent injury or
swelling. I washed it with a cloth and
found a bead of blood oozing from his
ankle.
I immediately thought of snake-
bite. I had never seen one but I knew
they were very painful. I called my
friend, veterinarian Leslie Campbell,
and she advised me to get Shepp to a
vet immediately.
"Call ahead and make sure he
has antivenom, though," she said.
"There's a shortage right now."
After several calls, I located
antivenom at the Wakulla Ani-
mal Clinic. Dr. Hobson lilmer in
Eastpoint also keeps the prod-
uct in stock, but on this evening,
he was out of town due to a family
emergency.
I got Shepp into the back of my
truck and drove like a demon to Craw-
fordville. The trip took an hour. In that
time, Shepp's leg below the knee had
swollen to twice its normal size. He
walked into the vet's office by him-
self.
After shaving my dog's leg, Dr.
Richard Austin confirmed my worst
suspicions. Shepp had been bitten
three times, probably by a water moc-
casin.
"The antivenom is $500 a dose and
he will require two," the vet informed


me. It took a few seconds to decide. In
my opinion, this is what credit cards
are for. Shepp got the medicine and
the swelling in his leg had started to
diminish 15 minutes after the treat-
ment began.
The antivenom serum that saved
Shepp is commercially produced to
neutralize the effects of the injected
venom. At special laboratories healthy
horses are injected with increasing
amounts of selected snake venom
(non-fatal, of course), gradually chal-
lenging the horse to make more an-
tibodies. A small amount of blood is
later removed from the horse and the
protein antibodies are separated out
and purified.
A specific antibody is produced for
each type of snake. The price I paid is
typical of vets in our area. It is wise to
call ahead and verify the antivenom is
available. This product, produced only
by a single company, is often in short
supply.
If your dog is bitten by a snake,
there may be no cause for concern, as
the majority are nonpoisonous. The
bites of harmless snakes show teeth
marks in the shape of a horseshoe,
but no fang marks.
In the United States, there are four
poisonous varieties: Cottonmouth
moccasins, rattlesnakes, copper-
heads and coral snakes. The diagno-
sis of poisonous snake bite is made
by the appearance of the bite, the
behavior of the animal and the spe-
cies of snake. Kill it and bring it with
you to the vet if you see your dog has
been bitten. I never saw the snake
that bit Shepp and had to go on a
hunch.
If you get to the vet and the bite
is not poisonous, all you have lost is
some gas and some time.
Fulmer said symptoms of snake-
bite are crying out, sudden pain and
swelling. Sometimes you can see
the mark of the fangs, he said, but in


Shepp's case, I could not.
Initial symptoms are followed by
diarrhea, collapse, sometimes sei-
zures, shock, coma and in severe
cases death.
Fulmer said knowing the type of
snake is important for treatment, but
not as much as knowing location of
the bite and the size of the dog and
snake.
A bite on the foot is less danger-
ous than a bite on the head. Large
dogs withstand the venom bet-
ter than small dogs and a smaller
snake, like a pygmy rattler, has less
venom to inject than a 5-foot Eastern
Diamondback.
"Getting the dog into the vet as
soon as possible is the best thing,"
said Filmer. "Within four hours, most
bites are treatable but don't waste
time."
If you believe your dog has been
bitten, do not take out your pock-
etknife and cut Xs over the fang
marks. Do not attempt to suck venom
through those X marks. This treat-
ment is no longer recommended for
humans or snakes. Do not grab the
snake in a fit of anger and attempt to
choke it to death. You may be bitten
yourself.
Some veterinarians now sell a
snakebite vaccination. Filmer said
there is no evidence this product is ef-
fective in our area.
"The vaccine was developed for
Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes.
There is nothing in the literature to
suggest it is effective against East-
ern Diamondbacks, Cottonmouths or
any of our local poisonous snakes," he
said.
An additional resource for snake-
bites and other cases where an
animal may have been poisoned is
the ASPCA Poison Control Hotline
(888) 426-4435. A $60 consultation
fee may be applied to your credit
card.

Raney House hosts MIXON from page Al


The historic Raney House
Museum in Apalachicola will
get into the Christmas spirit
with a Festival of Christmas
trees opening Friday, Nov.
28, continues Saturday, Nov.
29 and thereafter daily dur-
ing regular visiting hours.
The Festival culminates
with a champagne reception
in the museum on Dec. 13.
Visitors to the museum,
an elegant Greek revival
structure with four stately
two-story columns, will see
how the home might have
been decorated for Christ-
mas in 1838 when it was
built by David Raney, a pros-
perous cotton exporter.
In addition, four Christ-
mas trees, placed on the
porch and inside the house,
will be decorated by teams
of volunteers including
Amanda Kohler, Leslie Wal-
lace Coon, Ruth Young, Lynn
Wilson, Alice Gibbs, Carrie
Kienzle, Susan Clementson,
Mark Willis, Andrea Duval,
and Joyce Estes and Elaine
Kozlowsky representing the
Calendar Girls who recently
posed for a calendar to raise


funds to fight breast cancer.
The museum will be open
from 1-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 28,
to accommodate the large
number of visitors expected
in Apalachicola for shopping,
the arrival of Santa by shrimp
boat and the tree lighting at
dusk. Entry is free.
On Saturday, Nov. 29, the
museum will open at 10 a.m.
and will close at 5 p.m. in
time for the lighting of the
Yule log at dusk.
The Festival of Trees
champagne reception will
be 7-9 p.m. Dec. 13 at the
museum. Visitors will do-
nate $10 at the door, which
entitles them to champagne
and hors d'oeuvres. A raffle
will be held with prizes in-
cluding dinners for two, ac-
commodations in local ho-
tels and inns, coffee table
books and more.
Raffle tickets are $5 each.
All proceeds of the cham-
pagne reception will be used
for museum improvements.
The Christmas trees and
decorations will continue as
holiday features of the mu-
seum until Dec. 23.

make deliveries in Bay County, but
that he was to return immediately
afterwards to 13 Mile, park the truck
and place the keys and money in their
proper places. Mixon was told he was
not allowed to use the truck for per-
sonal use.
"Mr. Ward had no deliveries east
of 13 Mile Seafood and there was no
reason for his seafood truck to be in
Apalachicola other than Mr. Mixon
had taken upon himself to take the
truck without Mr. Ward's permission
or authorization and use it for his per-
sonal use," wrote Segree in the prob-
able cause narrative.
The two criminal mischief charges
stem from Mixon having allegedly
committed an offense for having "will-
fully and maliciously injuring or dam-
aging by any means any real or person-
al property belonging to another." The
charge is a felony because the damage
exceeds $1,000, which can include "in-
terruption or impairment of a business
operation or public communication,
transportation, supply of water, gas or
power, or other public service."
One charge is associated with hav-
ing totaled Ward's truck and the other
is for the massive damage sustained
by the bank, estimated by bank offi-
cials to be in the neighborhood of $1.5
million to $2 million.
According to the probable cause
affidavit, Apalachicola Police Chief
Bobby Varnes and State's Attorney In-
vestigator Johnny Turner interviewed
Mixon at his home on Nov. 17, a day af-
ter he was released from Bay Medical
Center with the fracture of two verte-
brae, scalp lacerations and a knee in-
jury sustained in the 5 a.m. crash.

"I'm done, I'm a dead man"

In a recorded statement after he
was read his Miranda rights, Mixon
told lawmen he had moved out of his
girlfriend's residence at the end of
October and had been dating her for
about four months. The girlfriend's
sister told investigators the relation-
ship lasted for only one month.
"He said he learned that (she) was
with someone else on this night and
she told him they were moving way
too fast in their relationship," read the


"Mixon said he made up
his mind up at the West
side/Bayfront station to
attempt to kill h im self
He said his dad, Buddy
Mixon, died in a seafood
truck andif it was a
good enough way for his
dad to go, it was a good
enough way for him."

from the affidavit

affidavit.
Mixon said he tried to call her re-
peatedly that night to talk about their
relationship but she had turned her
cell phone off. He said he also called
his ex mother-in-law "and told her to
tell his children that he loved them."
Mixon's mother-in-law told investi-
gators she got the call about 3:30 a.m.
and was told "he's done, tell my chil-
dren I love them. I'm done, I'm a dead
man. I'll be in the paper in the morn-
ing." She said Mixon told her to tell his
ex-wife that if she didn't believe him to
"call his cell phone and whoever an-
swered it would tell her he was dead."
The mother-in-law told officers
that Mixon had attempted suicide
three years ago, possibly from a drug
overdose.
Mixon also reported that he left
messages on his girlfriend's cell phone
"to the effect that what he was about
to do was her fault for playing him for
a fool and messing with his feelings."
He said he left similar messages on
her sister's telephone as well as an-
other friend's, with the latter message
indicating he intended to drive off the
pier.
"Mixon said he made up his mind
up at the West side/Bayfront station
to attempt to kill himself," wrote the
investigators. "He said his dad, Buddy
Mixon, died in a seafood truck and if
it was a good enough way for his dad
to go, it was a good enough way for
him."

Mixon estimated he was traveling
about 75 to 80 miles per hour down
U.S. 98 but denied he planned to drive
into the bank building at Market Street
and Avenue E.
"He said his intentions were to
drive the seafood truck off into the
end of Avenue E, over the city dock
and into the river," reads the affidavit.
"Mixon said the driver of the newspa-
per vehicle pulled out in front of him
and he had to veer to avoid a collision
and this caused him to strike the bank
building."
The driver of the newspaper deliv-
ery vehicle, Steve Holt, told Segree
he was stopped at the corner of US
98 and Sixth Street, facing west, when
the seafood truck zoomed by.
"He could tell from the way the
truck was floating (suspension maxed
out) on the roadway that the truck had
reached maximum speed," wrote the
investigators, who noted that "Holt's
observation of no other vehicles in
the vicinity of the crash contradicts
(Mixon's) statement of having to veer
to avoid a collision with a vehicle and
striking the bank building."
Holt later pulled Mixon to safety
from the burning truck.

Did two stints in state prison

If Mixon is eventually convicted
and sentenced to prison, it will make
the third time he has spent time be-
hind bars in a state penitentiary.
On Oct. 28, 1985, right after his 20th
birthday, he was sentenced in Frank-
lin County for three felonies, burglary
of an unoccupied structure, armed
burglary and arson.
He spent time at Apalachee West
Correctional, Cross City Correctional
and Martin Correctional and was re-
leased Dec. 6, 1991 after doing a little
more than six years. This incarcera-
tion was marked by a long list of dis-
ciplinary actions, according to state
prison officials.
On Dec. 15, 1995, he returned to
prison following a conviction for mari-
juana sale in Escambia County. He
had only two disciplinary actions dur-
ing these two years behind bars, at
Liberty Correctional and Walton, and
was released Nov. 7,1997 to state pro-
bation.

Chef Eddie tells all


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Chef Eddie Cass, who
helped plant the seeds for
Apalachicola's blossoming
reputation for classy cuisine,
is sharing his secrets.
The 62-year-old Cass, a
certified executive chef and
owner of the Magnolia Grille,
is hosting his second Cooking
Class on Thursday, Dec. 4.
Earlier this month, Cass
taught his first class before
20 people, using a stove set
up in his back room alongside


a mirrored exhibition table
constructed for the occasion
by server Patrick Leach.
"Food is fun," said Cass, a
native New Englander who
graduated from chef training
in 1965, taught by certified
master chefs whose talents
delighted the palates of an
elite Bostonian clientele,
from the finest hotels to Har-
vard University professors.
Chef Eddie opened the
two-hour class with a bro-
chette, a crunchy French
bread, followed by fresh
mozzarella cheese flavored


with extra virgin olive oil,
basil and aged balsamic vin-
egar.
Next came salads topped
with Italian vinaigrette
dressing, made easily in a
blender.
Three pasta dishes fol-
lowed, featuring fresh poma-
doro and basil sauce, nou-
veau marinara, and lobster
in asiago sauce with fresh
shrimp from Ward's Seafood.
The wine of choice was an
inexpensive, but highly re-
garded, white wine, Georges
du Boeuf Pouilly-Fuisee.


The chef interspersed the
evening's class with tips on
everything from how to pre-
serve fresh herbs to touches
that can make a difference
between a good meal and a
memorable one.
The class closed with the
making of a white chocolate
creme brulee.
Cost for the class ran $25,
with all food and beverage
included.
For those who imagine
being hosts at a Chef Eddie
catered affair, the restau-
rant is holding a wedding
giveaway sweepstakes for
an October affair.
No purchase is unneces-
sary and those who want
to enter can fill out a ticket
at the restaurant at 99 llth
Street.
Chef Eddie said the draw-
ing will be held in July, and
that the complete affair,
except for liquor, can be for
anything from a wedding to
a renewal of vows to a very
special anniversary.

needing, a dedicated facility where seniors
can congregate without being interrupted,"
he said.
Johnson said because the center is spa-
cious, there will be enough room to incorpo-
rate a cultural history component.
"There'll be displays on the wall, and
they'll probably have an office space, but not
all details have been worked out," said Cindy
Giametta, the city's grant writer.
She said the paperwork probably won't be
signed with the state before January, and then
it likely will be at least the fall before work will
start on the project, which involves a complete
renovation. Until then, she said, the center is
neither safe enough nor handicap accessible
to be used.
The city has spent $50,000 in Tourist Devel-
opment Council money to complete the new
roof over the sanctuary but beyond that, the
building will need to be made handicap ac-
cessible, completion of the new roof, all new
electrical and plumbing work, an addition for
kitchen facilities, and parking, as well as sev-
eral interior design modifications.
Giametta said the community will be able
to rent out the sanctuary portion for private
affairs as well.
"We're real excited about it," she said. "It's
a big asset for the city. Really for the county,
not just the city."
Johnson said he would like to see the work
go to local contractors and tradesmen, and
described the new senior center as the first
piece of a plan to also create a dedicated youth


center.
He said the city has been in talks with
school district officials to obtain use of the
Apalachicola High School gymnasium for a
youth center.
The new senior center, at 203 Seventh
Street, will house such services as care man-
agement planning, Meals on Wheels, con-
gregate meals prepared on site, activities,
in-home care giving, homemaking services,
respite care, caregiver assistance, adult day
care and information and referral services.
"One of the most important things we can
do for Florida's seniors is to provide the means
for them to stay active and involved in their
communities," said Elder Affairs Secretary
Beach. "These grants will make an important
difference in the lives of countless older Flo-
ridians."
Senior centers receiving the state grants
will be required to provide at least a 25-percent
match, bringing the total value of the projects
to a minimum of $12.5 million. In addition to
construction of the three new senior centers,
allowable expenditures include repairs and
renovations for such items as ramps, auto-
matic door openers, elevator controls, and fire
or security systems, as well as major energy-
related renovations such as lighting systems,
roof repair and window replacement.
An estimated 380,000 seniors visit Florida's
240 senior centers each year. More informa-
tion on Florida's senior centers is available at
http://elderaffairs.state.fl.us/english/senior-
center.php.

in Franklin County. McEl-
heney said he would recuse
himself from the vote to avoid
the appearance of conflict
of interest, leaving only four
members available to vote,
less than a quorum.
Ray Reisner, project man-
ager and employee of HDR
Engineering approached the
board with a cell phone and
McElheney announced that
Maurice Langston, the board
member from Wakulla Coun-
ty, would be voting over the
phone to break a tie.
Jackel asked if this proce-
dure was allowed and Mike
Duncan, general council for
the board, said he had re-
searched the question and it
was allowed.
Vice Chairman Jay Odum,
of Okaloosa County, said, "In
abundance of caution, we'll
just wait until the next meet-
ing."
Jackel then produced a
copy of the "Government in
the Sunshine" manual and
read a passage stating that
telephone voting was only al-
lowed if there was a quorum
present, in extraordinary
circumstances such as ill-
ness, and if the voting mem-
ber participated throughout
the meeting over a speaker
phone or other electronic de-
vice that allowed the member
to hear and be heard by the
public.
A member of the audience
pointed out that if McElheney
recused himself, there was no
quorum present.

Local impacts
McElheney said beginning
with the new phase of the
project, there will be at least
one environmental impact
meeting each year for the
next five years.
"At environmental impact
meetings, we'll show every-


r


thing from the last meeting
and what's happened in the
interim," he said.
Reisner said environmen-
tal impact studies have been
funded $8 million through
2009. He said the authority
will study economic and prop-
erty impacts in addition to the
environment.
He said that in addition to
the corridor from St. Teresa
to Eastpoint, other options
such as armoring U.S. 98,
beach renourishment and off-
shore barriers would be con-
sidered.
"This whole process is to
determine what's going to
happen," Odum said.
Riverkeeper Andy Smith
asked if the only issue being
considered was evacuation
and return.
Reisner said that was cor-
rect. "There is no intention to
increase capacity," he said.

Evacuation routes
Gathana Parmenas of
Carrabelle, a Red Cross
volunteer active with local
mitigation strategy for eight
years, told the board that has
served on the state hazard
and mitigation task force,
gathering regional informa-
tion.
"Their study does not
show any problem with evac-
uation in Franklin County.
There are limited post-event
issues, but they involve State
Route 65 and County Road
67," she said. "I would like to
see some data supporting the
need for an east-west evacua-
tion route."
Frank Venable of East-
point said he would like to see
"some proof that the substan-
tial objections you have heard
here today are being passed
on to the governor. We have
no need of additional evacu-
ation routes. Ms. Parmenas


just said it. Hurricanes are a
non issue. How can you jus-
tify the tremendous cost of
people who have been on the
payroll for years?"
Reisner said, "We're not
advocating building a road
from one end to the other.
We're encouraged by the
DOT to consider offshore
breaks to protect the road.
You have given us some real
good reasons that that blue
line should be disqualified.
We're going to look at some-
thing different than just pil-
ing rocks on the shore."
An audience member
displaying an Authority pro-
tested. "You show the road
on your map," they said. "If
it's important enough to put
on the map that must mean
something."
McElheney said the Flor-
ida Department of Transpor-
tation "can give you plenty
of history on the existing US
98. It washes out every time
there's a storm. All we're try-
ing to do is take a regional
approach. If there was a Ka-
trina type event, 98 would be
gone."
Venable said, "We didn't
invite you here. All of you are
outsiders. The one person
who should be here to repre-
sent us is absent. That's very
telling and it's very telling
that this project is designed
by The St. Joe Company and
it's through their property.
This is an insult. Where is the
evidence that you passed the
public input on to the gover-
nor?"
Norris asked "What's your
recommendation? The roads
get damaged every time
there's a storm."
Venable replied there is an
offshore barrier at Two-Mile
that has protected the road.
"There has got to be a pro-
cess that determines what is
best," Norris said.

An exercise in futility
Green Guide and environ-
mental advocate Lesley Cox
of Carrabelle said, "I want to
go on the record as a no build
proponent. I am appalled that
we would even consider put-
ting a road on the relict dune
system. It's a fragile ecosys-
tem. If a Katrina type storm
came it would wipe out 98 and
any road you build above it.
This is an exercise in futility."
Marilyn Hogan of East-
point asked that "the people
here who object to this to
stand up now." About 30 mem-
bers of the audience stood and
stared silently at the board.
Joe Eckstine of Eastpoint
said, "Let me add my voice to
those who stood orraised their
voices with Frank. I am very
opposed to an escape route
coming off the bridge, making
a sharp left turn. While it will
be an escape route, it will be
there permanently."

Seahawks to take care of 'unfinished business'


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

With a wealth of seasoned
players back this year, the
Seahawks boys basketball
program plans to take care of
business this year by shooting
for a berth in the state cham-
pionship.
But first they have to take
care of some things that aren't
finished from last year.
"We left some unfinished
business back in Maclay," said
coach Fred Drake, now en-
tering his second year at the
helm of the program.
With a 17-9 record last year,
the Seahawks lost the district
championship 39-30 at the Ma-
clay gym last February, and
then bowed out of the region-
als a week later with a loss at
home to Port St. Joe.
Drake is aware of the
strengths of Class 2A Region
1, District 4 rivals Jefferson
County, Tallahassee Maclay
and Tallahassee North Flori-
da Christian, and isn't looking
past anybody.
But with three players who
last year scored in double-dig-
its back again, and with sev-
eral fresh Seahawks to plug
gaps, the team's fortunes look
solid and strong going into the
upcoming season.
"That's on paper," said
Drake. "We got to live up to
it. My expectations are to win
district and make it to the final
four in Lakeland, if everyone
buys into the system."

This year's squad

Two returning seniors, De-
shaun Winfield and Jeremy
James, and two new seniors,
Alexander Simmons and A.J.
Williams, are expected to
provide the leadership and
maturity so crucial to putting
together a winning season.
At 6"4 and 180 pounds,
Winfield is coming off a year
where he averaged 15 points
and nine per game, with two
blocks per game.
He'll be supplemented at
the post by 6'4", 200-pound Al-
exander "Zan" Simmons, who
didn't play last year.
"I'm looking for Deshaun
to give us a presence in the
inside, and along with Zan to
bang it inside and score from


The Lady Seahawks split
their two opening games,
downing Wewahitchka 63-
11 in their home opener and
then falling 58-33 to Wakulla
County in a Nov 20 away
game.
Senior forward Ashley
Myers keyed the Wewa vic-
tory with 20 points, followed


inside," said Drake, who will
be helped this year by assis-
tant coach Carlos Hill. "Zan
gives more height and that's a
presence that was missing in-
side. That was a problem with
Maclay last year; we couldn't
match up with their big guys."
Coming off of a season
where he averaged nine
points, six assists and three
steals per game, 5'10" senior
James is expected to play at
the wing, and perhaps point
guard if he adapts to the role.
"He plays aggressive de-
fense. That's the energy guy,
to set the tone for the game
and to give us those steals
on defense," Drake said of
James.
Senior Williams will likely
be a back-up guard, after hav-
ing shored up his academic
standing.
The team sports two ju-
niors who both saw plenty of
playing time last year, 5'10'
Arron Prince, who averaged
six points and seven assists
per game last year, and 5'11"
Austin O'Neal, who averaged
10 points and five assists per
game.
"We got to get a true point
guard to step up and take
control, and make sure the
offense is running smoothly,
who doesn't make turnovers
when teams start pressing us
full court, man to man," said
Drake. "Last year it showed
that we didn't have a true
point guard."
He said O'Neal, who can
score from the wing, may
be called to play point guard
fulltime, provided he gives up
expectations of amassing a lot
of points. "The problem is he
wants to score," said Drake.
Three other players round
out the juniors, including 6'3
A.J. Arnold, new to the team
this year after playing for Car-
rabelle and then recovering
from a shoulder injury; 5'9"
Tydron Wynn and 5'9" Bran-
don Hand.
Drake said Wynn, who
played lineman for the Se-
ahawks, "showed a lot of im-
provement. He showed he can
hit a jump shot. He's definitely
won his teammates over that
he deserves to be on varsity."
Five sophomores are on
the varsity roster this year, led
by 6'1" Dalin Modican, who
was a sixth man last year. "I

Tasia Simmons.
Junior forward Monet Mo-
ron added eight, while senior
center Khrystal Davis had

Croom five, freshman guard

nior guard Joy Carrino two.
Coach Justin Long said


DAVID ADLERSTEIN I The Times
Members of the Seahawks boys basketball team are, front row, from left, sophomore
Michael Turner, sophomore Adam Joseph, senior A.J. Williams, junior Tydron Wynn,
and junior Austin O'Neal. Back row, from left, are senior Deshaun Winfield, senior

expect him to play on a regular
basis, at wing and post," said
Drake. "He's another energy
guy, a young version of Jeremy
James."
The other sophomores vy-
ing for a chance to see plenty
of playing time are 6'6" Mi-
chael Turner, 6'3" Adam Jo-
seph, 5'10" Marcus Allen and
5'8" Zach Peters.

High hopes for
freshman Morris
The team has only one
freshman, and he will be a
force to be reckoned with, cer-
tainly against area competi-
tion and perhaps statewide if
the Seahawks advance.
At 6'6" and 170 pounds, Car-
los Morris has bulked up a lit-
tle from last year when he av-
eraged 18 points, 10 rebounds
and two blocks per game.
Morris played this summer
with the AAU's Team Florida
Breakdown and is being eyed
by basketball scouts from
across the country.
"He's already a Division
1 recruit, they're keeping up
with him," said Drake. "He
gained a little weight, and has
been in the weight room a little
bit. He definitely got better.
You can tell he worked on pen-
etrating.
"He's already better than
last year," said the coach. "He


doesn't drop his head and he's
actually working on his de-
fense. He's taking it seriously;
you can tell the difference that
AAU did for him over the sum-
mer. He's a quiet kid, but he's
a little bit more outspoken this
year."
Morris hit for 24 points in
the team's second pre-sea-
son game Nov. 18 at Sneads
against Altha, which the Se-
ahawks won 68-39. James add-
ed 11, Winfield 10, Simmons
eight, Joseph five, Prince and
Arnold each four, and Williams
two. Morris and Simmons lead
the team with seven rebounds


each, while Joseph blocked a
shot.
The Seahawks won the first
pre-season game Nov 15 at
Sneads, winning 51-40 behind
Winfield's 21 points. "Carlos
wasn't shooting the ball well,"
said Drake. "I wondered 'Did
he lose the jump shot in work-
ing on attacking the basket?"
Simmons added 15 points,
James six, Morris four, Prince
three and Joseph two. Jo-
seph, Winfield and Simmons
each had nine rebounds, and
Winfield added three blocked
shots.
Drake said he is looking to

against Wakulla, Simmons
led with 17 points, followed
by Myers with nine, Croom
with three, Carrino with two,
and Davis and Lockley one
each.
Also on the squad are se-
nior guard Patricia Golden
and freshman forward Haley
Lemieux.

the inexperienced players to
step up. "I'm hoping that they
fit in, that they understand
my program and my expecta-
tions," he said.
He said the biggest chal-
lenges will be filling the point
guard slot, improving on re-
bounding and avoiding unnec-
essary turnovers.
Drake said now that he
knows his players better, he
has adapted his coaching style.
"I've gotten to know them as
a person. Some are sensitive
and so I've tried to change up
my style to where I'm not so
much in their face. I'm trying
to calm down from that and let
them play.
"They've told me 'don't do
all that fussing and yelling' and
so I'm not much criticizing but
just letting them play," he said.
The team has a brand-new
spacious gym to play in this
year, but whether it will help or
hurt them is still up in the air,
because of how intimidating
the cramped confines of "The
Matchbox" could be.
"We have only seven home
games in the gym," said Drake.
"In order to get to state, to be
good, you got to win on the
road. We got to know how to
win the big games in someone
else's gym."
Rounding out the junior
varsity roster this year are
Deandre Robinson, Chance
Bufkin, Lakota Humble, Adri-
an Hendels, AJ Allen, Mar-
quez Williams, Austin Larkin
and Makenzie Wilson.

methods of food production. Slow Food's motto is
"Good, Clean, Fair"
Concern for the planet's well-being was imme-
diately evident at the 2008 edition of the Salone
del Gusto (Salon of Taste)/Terra Madre food fair,
held in October at
the Lingotto Fiera
Exhibition Center
in Torino (Turin),
Italy.
-As my husband
Luciano and I en-
e ctered the Lingotto
Center, and even be-
fore we saw our first
,food display, we spot-
ted a row of trash
and recycling con-
tainers lined against
a wall, ready to re-
ceive the garbage
produced by the es-
timated 180,000 peo-
im ple who attended the
five-day event.
These containers were only the first sign of a
larger plan implemented by the event's organiz-
ers, in collaboration with the Industrial Design
Department of the Polytechnic Institute of To-
rino, the Zero Emissions Research & Initiatives
(ZERI) Foundation, among others, to reduce the
environmental impact of the Salone.
In the most ambitious effort ever undertaken
at an international event of this size, Salone plan-
ners explored every opportunity to reduce, reuse,
and recycle. One of the first decisions made by the
organizers was to forego carpeting of the exhibi-
tion areas. Considering that the exposition space
covered 15 acres, this represented a significant re-
duction of material destined for the landfill. Some-
times, the food itself was drafted into double duty
in an effort to conserve resources. For example,
a stack of giant wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano
cheese was used as a table!


plates, napkins,
and eating utensils at the
Salone were made from bio-
degradable plant-based
material. When Lucia no
and I had finished eat-
ing the samples of-
fered, any leftovers
(there weren't
many of those!)
along with the
dinnerware were
tossed into the
bins designated
for organic mat-
ter.


The exhibition
booths were con-
structed of a type '
of environmentally.
friendly fiber board
known as Celenit 'which ., Hi
will be re-used in a road -
construction project The bare
floors and unpainted %\alls did not
detract from the enjoyment of the food.
In fact, the simple surroundings served to high-
light the colorful culinary displays.
Wandering around the immense exhibition
space could be tiring, and with an average of
36,000 people in attendance daily, at times it was
hard to find a place to sit. The event's organizers
tried to address this problem by introducing cre-
ative seating solutions. Recycled cardboard was
used in a variety of ways to provide economical
and light-weight seating. One type of high-backed
chair assembled from a flat sheet of cardboard
proved to be surprisingly comfortable and sturdy.
The most beautiful alternative-material chairs
were made from recycled wine barrels. Adorned
with wine labels, the stylish oak chairs' curved
wooden slats were burgundy-stained from months
of contact with fermenting grape juice.
Another type of seating utilized rolls of
old newspaper and cardboard tubing held to-

S reasonably sturdy,
but by the end of the
~ kday. many of these news-
Spaper -seats resembled the
Leaning Tower of Pisa! I think
they need to go back to the drawing
board with this prototype.
The efforts at "greening" the Salone paid off.
Sixty percent of the collected waste was sorted
for recycling, and the amount of trash produced
at the event was reduced by almost 50 percent in
comparison with the 2006 Salone del Gusto. Even
with this sizeable reduction, the total amount of
garbage over five days weighed 220,000 pounds!
Inspired by its successful experiments, Slow
Food's environmental awareness did not end with
this year's festival. At the next Salone del Gusto in
2010, all exhibitors will agree to adhere to a set of
"good, clean and fair" guidelines.
Soon, I look forward to writing about my favor-
ite food group: Chocolate! Buon Appetito!

one who should know.
Billionaire investor Warren
Buffett, considered the nation's
richest individual, shared with a
group of students from the Col-
lege of Business the two rules of
business they should always re-
member.
"Rule number one, always
make money," he told them. "Rule
number two, never forget rule
number one."
Hendels was among 27 FSU
business students who met Buf-
fett Oct. 17, part of a group from
six schools invited to Omaha, NE
to spend time visiting with the
famous chief executive officer of
Berkshire Hathaway, a diversified
holding company. Forbes maga-
zine named Buffett the nation's
wealthiest person earlier this
year.
"He's unusually humble and
down-to-earth for a man of his
caliber," said Charlette Livings-
ton, an MBA student chosen to
participate. Students also were
treated to a question-and-answer
session and lunch by Buffett at a
local steakhouse and toured two
Berkshire Hathaway subsidiar-
ies, Nebraska Furniture Mart and
Borsheims.
"I was most impressed by the
candor of Warren Buffett's re-
sponses during the question and
answer session," said Paul "Chris"
Grunewald, an MBA student. "Mr.
Buffett has the uncanny ability to
opine on a wide range of topics
concerning finance and business
evaluation."
Students applied for the trip
opportunity. The college required
student participants to have a cu-
mulative grade-point average of at
least 3.8, and the application sub-
mitted included a resume and a
statement describing professional
goals and extracurricular activi-
ties. A faculty committee made
the selections.
"It was a good experience," said
Hendels. "It was interesting meet-
ing someone of his stature, he was
really down to earth. He let us all
ask questions. He told us, 'If you
invest in what you like, if everyone
else likes it, it will be good."
Valedictorian of Carrabelle
High School in 2004, Hendels will
graduate magna cum laude from
FSU next month with a bachelor's
in finance and management. She'll
start the FSU masters of business
program in May 2009.
Right now she's working in the
office of the FSU vice-president of
university relations, and is begin-
ning to focus on how her business
career will unfold. "I'm thinking
maybe banking or portfolio man-
agement, something definitely
with finance," Hendels said.
She is the daughter of Choppy
and Rachial Hendels, of Carra-
belle Beach, and the granddaugh-
ter of the late Cottie and Mildred
Hendels, of Apalachicola, and the
late Ukie (D.N.) and Irene Cream-
er, of Eastpoint.
"We had a great trip," said
Glenn Boggs, a business law pro-
fessor who led the group of under-
graduate and graduate students.
"You can string some superlatives
together fantastic, information-
al, informative. More than that, it
was really, really interesting." He
was impressed by Buffett's obvi-
ous intellect and humor and em-
phasis on the importance of ethics
in business decisions.
Lauren Turner, another MBA
student participant, said it was in-
teresting to learn how little mate-
rial possessions mean to Buffett.
"He really believes in using
his money for good and feels the
best way to do that is by finding
valid and trustworthy foundations
to donate toward," Turner said.
"That was refreshing to hear from
a man who could be frivolously
spending money on pretty much
anything he wants."

Donating blood makes perfect holiday gift


Giving blood is a good
thing to do for many rea-
sons and not the least of
these is the service we do
to our neighbors.
Apalachicola Mayor Van
Johnson was the recipient
of a transfusion in Feb-
ruary 2007 that probably
saved his life. Here is his


VAN JOH
Apalachico


story:
"Early last year I went to Bay
Medical Center with a bleeding
ulcer. After I was admitted and
awaiting treatment, I passed out. I
had lost about four units of blood.
That's about half of the blood in
your body," he said. "Because I


was able to receive a trans-
fusion, I was fine, and I
checked out of the hospital
three days later. When Su-
san Richardson and Ralph
Peterson started this blood
drive, I shared this story
with them."
HNSON There will be a blood
la mayor drive again from 10 a.m. to
6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 8 at the Natu-
ral Medicine Shoppe. All donors
will be entered into a weekly draw-
ing for a $50 gift card. Please pitch
in and help your neighbors before
they need it. It's the best holiday
gift of all.
For more information, call


Aimee A. Palmer, area blood
drive coordinator, Bay Medi-
cal Blood Donor Center at
747-6570.

African-Americans needed
to give blood
The African-American popu-
lation is growing faster than the
Caucasian population and, as it
does, so does the need for African-
Americans to give blood.
African-Americans make up
13 percent of the U.S. population,
but fewer than 2 percent of blood
donors. Nearly 20 percent of all
African-Americans have type-B

Carrabelle Food Pantry requests donations


The Carrabelle Food Pantry is in
need of donations of food and funds
to be used especially for the holiday
season.
Every week throughout the
year, your neighbors volunteer to
collect, bag and distribute food to
more than 135 needy families in the
Carrabelle area. At Thanksgiving,
Christmas and Easter, we try to give
special holiday food to those families.
We are fortunate this year to received
funding for Thanksgiving tur-
keys, but we still need dressing,


cranberry sauce and vegetables.
For $1.50, we can provide a box of
stuffing mix, $5.50 will get a case of
canned vegetables from the Second
Harvest in Tallahassee, and $10 will
buy 10 canned meat meals. No dona-
tion is too small. We realize this is a
rough year for all of us economically.
Even if you could buy one extra item
and put it in the Food Pantry donation
boxatthe Carrabelle IGAthe next time
you buy groceries, it would be a big
help.
Anyone wishing to make a cash


donation should make the check
out to the "Carrabelle Food Pantry,"
which now is operating as an inde-
pendent non-profit serving the Car-
rabelle and Lanark Village end of
Franklin County. Donations of food or
funds can be left at the United Meth-
odist Church, the Carrabelle Water-
front Partnership Office at 701 Marine
St., or the Carrabelle Chamber of
Commerce.

CARD OF THANKS


A FRIEND IN NEED


Elder Care Services

When I saw the loaf of home-baked bread and fresh fruit
with a card from the Philaco ladies, I smiled. No, it was not
for me. It was for the elders of our area. I am not sure how
long the Philaco ladies have been doing such good deeds. It
means a lot to the seniors to get such a treat.
If you are a Philaco lady, I want to say thank you for help-
ing out our local folks. If you know a Philaco lady, be proud
you do.
Sincerely,
Bert Ivey

Artemis artist Annie Pais documents 'Doors of Apalachicola'


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

Local gallery owner Hol-
lis Vail has joined forces with
plein air artist Annie Pais to
create a record of some of
the city's most distinctive and
welcoming architectural fea-
tures.
Doors.
On Friday, Nov 14, the Ar-
temis Gallery hosted an open-
ing to display 19 of Pais' origi-
nal watercolors and a poster
depicting the body of work.
"We have documented
many other doors and there
are many more doors to
come, but in this phase we
could only capture the 19,"
said Vail.
"A couple of years ago I
made a trip to visit Apala-
chicola and photograph in the
surrounding area. I fell in love
with the town immediately!"
Pais said. "To my delight I


discovered that the Artemis
Gallery carried the work of an
artist/friend, Eleanor Blair.
I called her and suggested
a few of us spend some time
painting in Apalachicola.
Pretty soon Hollis had gen-
erously arranged for three of
us to stay in an historic house
and we enjoyed an amazing
week of exploring the town,
the Apalachicola River and
all of the beautiful environs
surrounding the town.
"At that time Hollis ap-
proached me with an idea she
had for creating a portrait
of the community, a poster
showcasing 'The Doors of
Apalachicola.' Her passion
for the town's architecture
and heritage merged with
my blossoming love of the
community, so we launched
the project. I spent the bet-
ter part of the week combing
the streets and photograph-
ing doors. I must have photo-


graphed a hundred interest-
ing doors! I went home and
enlisted the help of a business
colleague, Stewart Thomas,
who happens to be a terrific
graphic designer. He told me
to cull out my favorite 25 doors
and he'd design a poster. He
sent me several designs and I
picked my favorite; it incorpo-
rates 19 door images. Then, I
painted the 19 paintings, one
of each door."
The opening was a great
success with about 50 in at-
tendance. Four of the original
watercolors sold that evening,
along with numerous copies
of the poster, said Jan Gor-
man, a partner in the Arte-
mis Gallery. The posters are
currently on sale at Artemis
and the collection of original
watercolors is available for
viewing, to request for a lim-
ited time.
Pais has been a pro-
fessional painter, teacher


and consultant working in
Gainesville for more than 30
years. Her watercolors and
oils of Florida images are
included in many private,
public and corporate collec-
tions.
Born in Greenwich, Con-
necticut, and raised in a stu-
dio by two artist parents; she
studied at Syracuse Univer-
sity. Pais continues her own
professional art career as a
painter and works regularly
in her studio. In 2002, follow-
ing a year of research, Pais
founded the Artists Alliance
of North Florida. In 2003, re-
alizing the great need for ed-
ucational models; she found-
ed ARTT (Artists Reaching
Through Teaching), now
the educational component
for Florida's Eden. ARTT
is currently part of a multi-
year pilot program at Fort
White High School in Co-
lumbia County.

By Lois Swoboda
Staff Writer

At the Nov. 20 meeting of
the Philaco Woman's Club,
Ann Sizemore, from the
Apalachicola Municipal Li-
brary, tearfully announced
her resignation from her
post, effective Nov. 29, after
two years with the library.
"The city provides $1,400
per month and that does
not cover my salary. My job
has been cut (back)," she
said.
"My vision was to pro-
vide services to the chil-


dren, young adults and
older people. We need to
supply books, computers,
forms, like tax forms, and
creative resources.
"When I started we had
no children," said Size-
more.
"Now we have 20 or 30 a
day. I want to give special
credit to Nadine Kahn and
Val Webb for their summer
program, which serviced
130 kids. They read over
200 books. There has been
activity at the library.
"We just need more,
and we need more volun-
teers."
