Walker honored as Teacher of the Year


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
The Franklin County School
District's new Teacher of the Year,
Harolyn Walker, had to postpone the
Croom's limousine ride all set to pick
her up at home and whisk her off to a
special breakfast at Caroline's Din-
ing on the River.
That's because she and other
reading teachers from the school
had to be in Quincy that morning for
a conference on changes to Florida
statewide student testing.
They were all part of the challeng-


es facing Walker, who was honored
at the Feb. 24 Teacher of the Year
banquet in the school for her excel-
lence in the work she does as an el-
ementary school reading coach.
"It's an honor to have your peers
think that highly of you to select
you," said Walker, who earlier had
been named Elementary School
Teacher of the Year.
Also presented plaque and a
wealth of gifts at the banquet, held
in the cafetorium just prior to the
tipoff of the Seahawks' regional
semifinal win over West Gadsden,
were George Oehlert, Middle School


Teacher of the Year, and Linda
Massey, High School Teacher of the
Year.
"I would not say I 'won' Teacher
of the Year for the district," Walker
said. "I am representing Mr. Oehlert
and Mrs. Massey and all the other
Franklin County teachers."
Walker, who was accompanied by
her husband, Pastor David Walker,
grew up in Apalachicola and is the
daughter of Louis and former Chap-
man Elementary School teacher Lo-
rine Banks.

Chili Cook-off
attracts enormous
weekend crowd

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
In the words of famed New
Orleans chef Emeril Lagasse, the
chili cook-off on St. George Island
Saturday kicked it up a notch this
year.
With a queue of waiting cars
stretching well back into the
Bryant Patton Bridge at the
day's peak, the 27th annual
charity cook-off drew attendance
well beyond past years, with
the sheriff's office estimating it
might have been as high as 10,000
people.
Jayne Bamburg, who chairs
the board of directors, said she
doesn't think it was that many,
but she knows it certainly was a
whooper this go-round.
"I have never seen the traffic
on the other side of the bridge,"
she said. "It was all the way
backed up to the other side of
the little hump. I heard people
talking about it, but until I saw
that photo, I thought 'Omigosh.'
"It was a wonderful success,
that's for sure," she said.
The volunteers who oversee
the event said it was a perfect
storm of great weather, spring
break timing and an increased
number of competitors that made
for the record-setting attendance.
"Weather by far was the

still bullish



on pre-built



homes

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
Tony Attalla is taking a proactive ap-
proach to the soft housing market facing
his GreenSteel pre-built homes assembly
plant in Carrabelle.
Though the number of employees at the
factory is down from its peak of more than
20, he foresees being able to add to his staff
again, possibly by this fall.
"Obviously it's a soft market, but we feel
GreenSteel homes have a niche group of
supporters who are going to buy this house
no matter what the economic conditions,"
said Chief Operating Officer W Earl Mc-
Clure. "Stick-built housing is definitely
overbuilt, but our product is unique. Tony
Attalla has 25 years of experience and
holds several patents."
In response to rumors the company is in
trouble, McClure said, "Late last summer,
the partnership split, and (former partner
Bud) Chiles relinquished control to Attalla.
I'm not aware of any problems with grants

Seahawks fall

short of upset

at Lakeland

By Pat McCann
Florida Freedom Newspapers
Franklin County went south hoping to
make a statement. It did but eventually be-
came another data entry.
The Seahawks' boys basketball team,
blazing a trail for a new school in just its
second year of varsity competition, refused
to buckle before private school leviathan
Arlington Country Day on March 5 in the
state Class 2A semifinals.
But a precarious three-point lead melt-
ed away as Franklin County went scoreless
for the final 3 minutes, 14 seconds in a 65-59
defeat.
Franklin County ended its breakout
season 26-6. Arlington Country Day, 23-
7, moved into a title game matchup with
Summit Christian on Saturday morning,
seeking its fifth consecutive 2A state title.
Summit Christian had outlasted Tampa
Prep 58-56 in overtime earlier March 5, but
on March 7, they were overwhelmed by Ar-
lington Country Day 80-41.

Because of the huge
turnout, the sheriff's office
led a contingent of six law
enforcement agencies
that oversaw security and
traffic control over the
weekend.
"I don't know of any
cook-off ever coming
on the same date as
Tallahassee's spring beak,
and that just happened,"
said Sherriff Skip Shiver.
"That gave us a great
influx of students and
regular participants of the
cook-off."
The weekend wasn't
without its problems,
especially with 17 arrests
for consumption of alcohol
by individuals under age
21, five DUIs and three
instances of disorderly
intoxication.

the parking areas. There's
just not enough space
for vehicles, and you
can't park in front of the
businesses," he said. "We
have to disperse them in
other areas and close that
area off for traffic where
the festival is."
Shiver said officers
could not do enough about
littering because of the
size of the crowd. "For
the amount of help, it
took everything we had to
control traffic and safety,"
he said.
Shiver said friends told
him the waiting time on
the bridge was in excess
of 45 minutes at the peak,
around 1-3 p.m.
The sheriff was on
the island from 8 a.m.
Saturday until 3:45 a.m.
Sunday and said most all
the complaints came after
it got dark and into the
early morning.
"Mostly your bars,
fights, things of that
nature," he said. "In the
parking lots, they started
little tailgate parties, the
typical spring break stuff
that happens. The more of
that fire water they get in
them, they're 10 foot tall
and bulletproof."


The sheriff's office
drew on support from
officers of the Florida
Highway Patrol,
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, the state's
Alcohol Beverage and
Tobacco agency and the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
Most of the sheriff's 19
officers on uniform patrol
were members of the
auxiliary, Shiver said.
"We exhausted
resources on that," he
said. "We didn't want to
take completely from the
force."
Bamburg said she was
overall pleased how the
crowd behaved this year
during the cook-off.
"It was a variety
of people, and to me,
everybody seemed to be
in check this year," she
said. "They came, they
parked, they had a great
time. It was much more
under control. Overall, I
thought the crowd was
wonderful."


Panama City teams
show who's chili boss
With more than 70
cooks registered and 68
showing up, the cook-
off chefs raised close to
$13,000 in donations from
their booths, about twice
as much as in a typical
year.
Leading the pack
was the Tallahassee
Parrothead Club, which
raised $2,250, followed
by Team Waterdog with
$1,290. Part of Waterdog's
fundraising came Friday
night, when they hosted
a dinner for the chefs and
served up 35 plates at $10
each.
Shepard said he
enlisted the help of 47
volunteer chili judges,
who tasted entries on
three tables, two with 23
entries and one with 22.
The competition ended
with five selected from
each table, for a total of 15
finalists.

Weems operating room picks up pace


Visitors to Franklin
County often leave with a
souvenir of the area, but
probably no one, except
a recent visitor from
Indiana, has ever left with
a remembrance so close to
her heart. Literally.
Tuesday morning, March
3, in the freshly reactivated
operating room (OR) at
Weems Memorial Hospital,
Dr. Shezad Sanaullah,
cardiologist on Weems'
medical staff; successfully
implanted a pacemaker in
the Indiana visitor's chest.
For the patient, the surgical
procedure means a small
device now will regulate her
heart rate so that she no
longer experiences "nearly
passing out" spells. For
Weems, the surgery signifies
the hospital is back, after
over a year, to performing
routine minor surgeries.
The reopening of the OR
at Weems "is part of its climb
back" after the hospital's
return to county control,
according to Dr. Steve
Miniat, chief of the medical
staff. Until three years ago,
Weems was in private hands
for a period. Since then a new
CEO and local governing
board have been directing
hospital operations. During
this time, too, the public

voted for a one-cent sales
tax increase designated for
health care improvements
in Franklin County.
The routine procedure
done at Weems consists
of making a nearly two-
inch incision underneath
a person's left collarbone,


explained Sanaullah.
Next, a silver-dollar sized,
battery-powered computer
with two connecting wires
(pacemaker) is put in place
beneath the skin. Then, the
two connecting wires are
fed through veins reaching
the top and bottom portions
of the heart. The pacemaker
sends electrical impulses
through these wires to the
heart to maintain a suitable
heart rate.
Often, before an implant,
the patient has been
suffering from a slow heart
rhythm. In the case of
the woman from Indiana,
her rate was slow enough
that she nearly passed out
sometimes when she tried
to fall asleep.
The patient didn't want
to return home without
the procedure being done.
Through the diagnosis stage,
she grew comfortable with
Sanaullah, and since she did
not have a cardiologist back
home, she opted to delay
her stay in Franklin County
for three weeks until the
surgery and her recovery
could be completed.
Weems also was ready
to reopen its OR. One of
the major necessary pieces
of equipment the hospital
has just acquired to enable

procedures like this one is a
C-arm. A C-arm, containing
a fluoroscope, is a tool which
provides the surgeon with X-
ray images of the patient to
guide the surgeon as he/she
performs the surgery.
According to Candi
Fox, chief nursing officer
at Weems, the hospital
also must be able to call
on a team of highly skilled
medical professionals to
perform invasive procedures
as it did March 3. During the
pacemaker implantation,
at least four other people
assisted Sanaullah for the


hour-long event: two nurses,
an interventional radiologist,
and a representative from
the manufacturer of the
pacemaker.

hospital's future as including

Lawson urges


swifter approval of


stimulus projects

Senate Democratic Leader Al Lawson (D-Tal-
lahassee) on Tuesday called on the chairman of
the powerful Senate Policy and Steering Com-
mittee on Ways and Means to bypass a lengthy
appropriations process and move instead to au-
thorize immediate approval of stimulus funds for
shovel-ready transportation projects.
He also sharply criticized the apparent paraly-
sis of the governor to create a federally mandated
website outlining the projects for both job seek-
ers and job bidders, and the inability
of the state transportation agency
to move the proposed road projects
from the draft stage to a final prod-
uct.
"It has come to my attention that
the federal stimulus money may
be in jeopardy of speedily reach-
AL LAWSON ing those Floridians desperately in
need of an economic life raft," wrote
Lawson in a letter to Chairman J. D. Alexander.
"There appear to be three impediments to jump-
starting our economy via the stimulus package."
According to Lawson, the first obstacle is the
governor's office, which has not followed the lead
of Georgia or Alabama or any of the 26 states
which have Web sites up and running. "How are
potential job seekers or potential job bidders sup-
posed to know what's available without the trans-
parency the governor once promised? His of-
fice's assertion that the website "is coming soon"
is little consolation to those floundering in cyber
silence," Lawson wrote.
The second is the perceived foot-dragging by
the Florida Department of Transportation, which,
according to its own Web site, has not moved any
of the proposed projects from the draft stage first
outlined in early December. "Has nothing changed
since then?" Lawson asked. "Is the agency pre-
pared to explain why nothing more concrete has
emerged to put tens of thousands of unemployed
Floridians back to work?"
Lawson noted that although the Legislature
might be unable to control the speed with which
the governor and his agency move the stimulus
plans forward, it does have the power to expedite
approval of the road projects and to remove po-
tential political pitfalls.
"I don't believe it is necessary to detail for you
the concerns I have about legislative meddling
in something so crucial to Florida's recovery
and her families' survival. You and I are far too
familiar with the political posturing and machina-
tions that can occur when billions of dollars are
at stake and individual lawmakers are deciding
where that money is to go. Manipulation of those
funds for political purposes is much too tempting,
and I fear for the little guy when the big guys are
calling the shots," Lawson wrote.
"I respectfully request that rather than through
a special spending bill, we authorize the Legisla-
tive Budget Commission, once the DOT submits
a project request, to immediately release the nec-
essary funds in order to get them moving.
"I think you will agree that with unemployment
close to 9 percent, the last thing our job seekers
want to hear is government bureaucracy imped-
ing their ability to earn a living. AWI's assertion
that they're 'hoping it will be this year' just doesn't
cut it. Floridians lining up for jobs are more than
ready to don the shovels and get back to work.
The power is in our hands to help them get there
more quickly."

Time to think positive thoughts


So many places I go, whether
in the grocery store, to work, and
sad to say, even church, I see such
discouragement and despair on the
faces and in the body language of
the people I meet. There is a sense
of worry and concern about
the potential state of things in
our country, county and cities.
The topic of conversation is
how bad things are getting
and are going to get, what is
going on in Washington, and
what will eventually hit home.
I find myself greeting TEM(
people with a "happy glad to WIN
be alive another day kind of Staying
feeling" only to get in return
the "woe is me, woe is us" syndrome.
I have come to the conclusion what
we will have to do, in the words of
one of our downtown Realtor's voice
mail, "Hey, think positive thoughts,
speak positive words and have a
good day."
So today, I want to encourage us
to do just that, especially toward
the proposed budget cuts to the
educational system.
I was given an editorial from the
Tallahassee newspaper headlined
"Cuts to education are going to
hurt." The opening paragraph read
"In Duval County, arts and physical
education teaching jobs could be
on the chopping block. Teachers
have forfeited their raises in Pasco
County. In Volusia County, building
sales and up to seven school
closures are being considered.
Franklin and Jefferson county
schools are flat broke."
The last sentence is the one that
really grabbed my attention. Flat
broke? Definition: without money.
Synonyms: bankrupt, beggared,
bust, cleaned out, destitute, dirt
poor, impoverished, in Chapter
11, in debt, indebted, indigent,
insolvent, needy, penniless,
penurious, poor, ruined, stone
broke, strapped, tapped out.
I am sure the article was
referring to financially broke. But
all I could think about and picture
is Franklin County flat and broke
because it had been by definition


O1
IT
g


smashed, split or reduced to pieces.
The old saying goes, "If it ain't broke,
don't fix it." Well, we have been
declared by the editorial that we are
broke, flat broke.
But how to we fix it you ask?
Being flat broke might be a
fact, but what is the truth?
The truth is the county's
educational system has been
in trouble long before this
economic crisis. Reminds me
of the Biblical story when for
40 years the children of Israel
LYNN wandered in the wilderness
ONS to reach the Promised
in Tune Land. It feels as if we're in a
wilderness experience and it
is as if we have so many promises
ahead of us, but right now they seem
as if they are far away from us.
The end of Black History Month
has brought to mind the victory
shown forth in a people who, over
the years, have triumphed to great
heights as they pulled from the
strengths inside of them to excel to
greatness.
I read a quote in a character
education lesson I was sharing with
my students recently; it read: "The
lack of leadership in our country is
not due to lack of leaders. It is due to
the lack of character in our leaders,"
said Gen. Norman Schwartzkopf.
I'd like to encourage us today to
pull from the commitment of Rosa
Parks, whose refusal to surrender
her seat on the bus to a white man
led to her arrest. But the eventual
change in the law, which allowed
blacks to sit wherever they wanted
on Montgomery's buses, sparked
the modern civil rights movement
and changed America and its view of
people of color.
I'd like to see us, Franklin County,
rise up and change the way we look
at ourselves, thereby changing the
way the state and even America sees
us.
And the courage of Jackie
Robinson, who didn't allow the
segregation of athletic teams to
prohibit him from going down
in history as one of the greatest
athletes of the 20th century. He went


on to receive the honor of being
the first African-American in the
Baseball Hall of Fame.
Just like the cowardly lion in the
Wizard of Oz seeking for courage
only to find he had it all the time, let
us realize we have everything we
need right here, right now. We are
the king of the forest.
Let us exercise the fairness of
Sojourner Truth, who although born
a slave, when she became free, spent
the rest of her life working for the
fair treatment of all people. So many
of us as individuals have endured
so much as we have climbed the
ladder for success and at times have
experienced a gamut of treatment.
We can now seek to secure the fair
treatment of others.
What about Bessie Coleman who,
in her determination to become a
pilot, learned French so that she
could attend flight school in France
where she earned her international
pilots license because she was
not allowed to attend flight school
in America because of her race?
We might have to learn to speak a
different language in order to get our
point across. We just must obtain our
license to fly to the great heights we
were purposed to reach.
Last, but not least, let us borrow
some optimism from Pearl Bailey
who, as a singer and actress with
a broad smile and caring heart,
became known as the "Ambassador
of Love." Three Presidents
appointed her as a special Goodwill
Ambassador to the United Nations.
Let us, in spite of how the
economy is looking and the
governmental attack on the
educational future of our nation, do
as a quote from Ms. Bailey reads:
"We must all think positive thoughts
about our lives and transmit those
thoughts to others beginning with
family, but extending beyond."

Yearning for the burn of Dr. Herring's ginger ale


I miss the old Red Top Drive-in
Restaurant in Apalachicola, not the
one from 10 years ago, but rather
the one from 40 years ago. Husband-
and-wife team Eddie and Christine
Scarabin manned the counter and the
kitchen. There were
a few wooden tables
and chairs inside
(made by the German
S prisoners of war over
near Lanark!), but
. q most of the service
B was drive-in style, and
DENISE ROUX the waitresses came to
Red, White the car window to get
and Roux customers' orders.
Mama and Daddy
like to take long drives around the
county on Sunday afternoons. We
might drive to the beach, wander
down the numerous dirt roads or
go to the bay front to walk on the
flats. These adventures required
sustenance, so we stopped at the Red
Top first. Mama; my sister, Susan; and
I always got milkshakes. Chocolate
for me and strawberry or vanilla
for Mama and Susan. For the life of
me, I could never understand why
anyone could ever order anything but
chocolate.
Daddy always got a cold Busch
beer opened inside with a can opener
that left two little triangles on the lid.
I distinctly remember the first time
he was offered a pop top can. The car
hop stayed to watch our accumulated
amazement at this technological
advancement. We all had an opinion
as to whether this was a healthy
change. We worried that we might
cut our lips. Daddy pointed out the


convenience of not having to keep a
church key in the glove compartment.
The Red Top offered numerous
fried chicken and seafood baskets, but
the hamburgers ruled supreme. They
contained some elusive, secret quality
that distinguished them as the best in
the world. As an adult, I tried to figure
this all out from my taste memory. I
suspected the secret ingredient might
have been a bit of sausage. "Not
so!" insisted Eddie and Christine's
daughter, Cynthia Scarabin Taylor.
The burgers were not huge.
The condiments were in perfect
proportion to the meat, and they were
amazingly consistent every time. It
was difficult to say no to a Red Top
burger, but the oversize hot dogs
placed a close second. They came


wrapped in waxed paper and covered
with a sweet red sauce laced with
chopped onion.
Because the milkshakes were a
meal in themselves, we generally had
a soda with our burgers or dogs. We
yearned for a Dr. Herring's ginger
ale, but Mama insisted that drink
was just for grownups because it was
just too hot and spicy for little kids.
I still managed to sneak a sip of the
forbidden beverage on the sly.
It was hot. The label stated that
it "pleasurably subdues thirst" and
"completes mixed drinks easily and
tastily." The drink also promised
that it "Boosts energy and stimulates
digestion naturally."
It was bottled locally at the
Apalachicola Coca-Cola Bottling
Plant, now the site of CVS Pharmacy.
A Google search revealed that it was
also bottled in Jacksonville and at
locations in Virginia. The bottles are
collectibles now.
My taste bud memories went into
overdrive last week when I sampled
ginger beer produced by the Goya
Foods label, which specializes in Latin
American food products. The familiar
burn took me back decades. Now,
I am a grownup and I can drink as
much of it as I can afford. At $1.09 a
bottle, it ain't cheap.
My next goal is to get Cynthia to
reveal the secret of the burgers and
maybe as a lagniappe, the hot dog
sauce.

Carrabelle toughens up on
delinquent water bills
At their March 5 meeting,
Carrabelle city commissioners
voted unanimously to set the
21st of each month as the shut-
off date for unpaid water bills.
Commissioner Frank Mathes was
not present)
Commissioner Jim Brown,


who is the water commissioner,
said he currently has 38 names of
customers slated for termination
of service due to lack of payment.
He said the city has thousands of
dollars in delinquent water bills.
"We either have collect on these
bills or raise the rates. We've got to
have enough money to operate on,"
he said.
"Bills where the water is off,


and has been turned off for 90
days, have actually been sent to
a collection agency," said Keisha
Smith, city clerk.
Under the new rules, water
bills, mailed out on the first of the
month, are delinquent after the
15th. Service will be terminated
if payment is not received by the
21st.

Teacher of the Year honors this year went to, from left, George Oehlert for
middle school, Linda Massey for high school, Laura Baney (a previous District
teacher of the Year) and Harolyn Walker, for elementary school and the entire
district.

TEACHER from page Al


After graduating from Apalachicola
High School in 1984, Walker earned a
bachelor's in education from Florida
A&M University in 1988. After receiving
her diploma, she interned at Chapman
under Eva White and then moved to
South Florida, where she spent 13 years
teaching in Broward County in the Fort
Lauderdale area.
During that period, Walker earned a
master's in education from Nova South-
eastern University in 1992.
Walker returned to Franklin Coun-
ty in August 2003, where she and her
husband, with whom she shares five
children, co-pastor the Covenant Word
Christian Center in Apalachicola.
Walker returned to teaching in 2004,
when she began as reading coach at
Brown Elementary School. She has
worked with small groups of students
as well as with teachers to ensure they
are familiar with methods to boost stu-
dent performance.
"I help teachers look at student data,
determine the need and make sure
they have the necessary tools to assist
these students. I can provide training
to teachers for reading strategies that
will help the students be successful,"
she said.
Walker's 19 years in education are
somewhat dwarfed by the more than
three decades Massey has devoted to
the profession. Now in her 32nd year
as a teacher, she began with Franklin
County in 1982 after five years teaching
in Georgia.
Massey teaches business courses at
Franklin County High School, including
computer applications, accounting and
distributive curriculum training, which
places students in work sites during
their high school years.
Oehlert, who was named principal
over the consolidated school earlier
this year, taught American history, gov-
ernment and world geography during
his tenure at the middle school.
Following a welcome from Elinor
Mount-Simmons, last year's district
teacher of the year, the gathering en-
joyed an introduction of the honorees
from Deborah Huckeba, Melanie Hum-
ble and Laura Baney.


I would not say I won'
Teacher of the Year for the
district. I am representing
Mr. Oehlert and Mrs.
Massey and all the
other Franklin County
teachers."

Harolyn Walker
Teacher of the Year

Dolores Croom offered a tribute in
poetry she wrote, "A Teacher's Prayer."
"Dear Lord, bless these teachers
as they each seek to teach, enrich and
guide your precious children. Grant
them with abundant resources to do
their job, bless them with the wisdom,
intelligence, sensitivity, kindness and
the material things that make it pos-
sible to mold our children into strong,
productive, stable individuals that will
one day lead our city, country, state or
nation.
"Lord, we ask that you wrap your
loving arms around these teachers,
encompass them with your love: Ms.
Linda Massey, Mrs. Harolyn Walker and
Mr. George Oehlert who give so much
of themselves. Immerse them in your
boundless, transcendent love. We pray
that you will strengthen and soothe
them when they need your extra atten-
tion, your extra care. We love, respect
and admire these wonderful educators
Lord, and we pray that you will watch
over them always, these special people
who hold our children and our future in
their hands."
After dinner, a Power Point presen-
tation and a tribute in prose by teacher
Margey Oehlert, a representative of En-
vision Credit Union presented checks to
the teachers.
Superintendent Nina Marks award-
ed them plaques and gifts, and Angeline
Stanley closed the program with the
song "The Greatest Love of All."

SPECIAL MEETING



Dog Island Conservation District

Board of Directors


A Special Meeting of the Dog Island Conser-

vation District ("District") Board of Directors

will be held on SATURDAY, MARCH 21,

2009 at 5 PM at the Dog Island Volunteer Fire

Department Headquarters building.


The purpose of the meeting is to discuss pro-

posed elements, requirements and costs relat-

ed to District participation in a scheduled ferry

service to/from Dog Island.


CHILI from page A2
"No more than 25 chilies are allowed
on a table during the preliminary
judging," Shepard said. "I don't see it
expanding beyond 75 chilies next year.
There's no more room for any more
tables under that tent."
He said despite the best-laid plans to
keep everyone off the newly placed sod of
the lighthouse park, one chef accidentally
snapped off a sprinkler head when he
backed his vehicle next to his booth.
Teams from Panama City won three of
the top five places, led by John Kowals
of the Beach Bums of Panama City
Beach, which finished first and
went home with $500 and a ticket
to the world championships
later this year.
"I used a different meat this
year," said Kowals, a veteran
competitor on the island for
the past 16 years. "I used
skirt steak, and I usually use
brisket.
"My chili has just a little
bite to it. You make it too hot
and it doesn't go over well
with a lot of people," he said.
A software engineer on
the naval base in Panama City,
Kowals said he relied on his
wife, Kathy, for "moral support"
as he created his winning batch.
Second place went to Trent Hatcher
of Just Plane Chili of Santa Rosa Beach,
and with it the $300 prize. A professional
airline pilot, Hatcher was competing in
his first cook-off, but he clearly showed he
had learned well from his elders. In 2005,
his father-in-law, Ron Judson of the Great
American Chili Co. Too team out of Red
Bluffs, Calif., took first place at the island
cook-off while his mother-in-law, Shirley
Judson, posted a third-place win.
A Panama City Beach team, Swamp
Gas Chili, staffed by a very pregnant
Holly Melzer and her husband, Daniel,
took third place Saturday and the $100
prize.
"It's a girl," said a jubilant Holly. "The
money's either going to a scholarship
fund or to her wedding fund."
Out of the money, but still with
the pride of a top finish, was Wanda
Gangswich's Three Sheets to the Wind
team out of Panama City Beach, in fourth
place. Jonathan Joseph's Atlantic Coast
Chili Company team out of Titusville
finished fifth.

Eighty pounds of shrimp, 10
gallons of oysters
The amateur crock pot chili
competition also had a generational
connection, as 14-year-old Cristina Collins
of Apalachicola, granddaughter of St.
George Island's Alice Collins, took third
place among the 26 entrants, the first


youth to place in the competition.
Alice Collins was among the cook-
off's founders and an early winner of
the competition before it eventually
blossomed into the region-wide
extravaganza it is today.
Cristina Collins' mom, Cindy, said her
daughter has been devoted to competing
for the past 10 years and does it entirely
herself.
"She stayed at her dad's house and
she refused to let him even chop up
veggies," she said. "(In the
past) she sued venison
and ground sirloin
and some type
of sausage. I had
a bowl and it was
pretty hot, but it wasn't
overbearing."
Bragging rights for best
amateur chili were secured
by Bobby and Patti Entrekin of
Savannah, Ga., with Gail Riegelmayer
of St. George Island finishing third.
Though final numbers won't be in for
a while, cook-off organizers expect to
gross more than $100,000 this year, with
all monies going to the volunteer fire
department and first responder unit.
Volunteers at the food booths said they
had no trouble selling out of seafood and
barbecue by mid-afternoon. Bob Landiss
said his booth went through 80 pounds
of shrimp and 10 gallons of oysters, and
others had similar results.
"People can afford it, and the sun's
out," he said. "It's a recession festival."
Bamburg said Saturday's auction, led
by a 2002 Ford Explorer that went for
more than $5,000, a fishing boat for $2,750
and a weeklong beachfront stay for more
than $2,700, lasted until close to 3 p.m.
She said the 160 items brought in
around $25,000, with the original beer
bottle Harry Arnold bought from Hoyt
Vaughn for $7.50 way back when and has
been auctioned off each year ever since
selling this year for more than $100.
Thursday's golf tourney at St. James
drew 32 players, was won by the sheriff's
office team and raised almost $3,000.
The booth run by Lynn Ellis's Bubba
and Cha Cha's Chili team out of Acworth,
Ga., won the award for best booth.
Wendy Davis, from team Toilet Bowl of
Lake Park, Ga., was selected this year's
Miss Chili Pepper, while Bob Malchi, from
the Atlanta Parrothead Club, was Mr. Hot
Sauce.
"My talent was cleaning toilets,"
Davidjoked. "But I thought I just won it
for my looks."
King Cotton Blues Band of
Tallahassee, started cranking it up just
after the winners were announced.
"They kept the crowd around and
everyone seems to really enjoy them,"
Bamburg said.

David Langston funeral



services set for Sunday


By Tim Croft
Florida Freedom Newspapers

Funeral services for Dr.
David Langston will be
held at 3 p.m. Sunday in
the R. Marion Craig Coli-
seum at Port St. Joe High
School. Viewing will be
from noon to 3 p.m. Sun-
day at the gym.
The repast will be held
at the senior citizens build-
ing in Port St. Joe.
Langston died Monday
afternoon after succumb-
ing to a brain aneurysm
Saturday night while re-
turning from the state ju-
nior college state basket-
ball tournament in Mari-
anna.
Langston arguably was
the finest basketball play-
er ever from Gulf County,
helping to lead Port St.
Joe to its first state title
in 1969. Langston aver-
aged nearly 32 points per
game that year for Coach
Bill Dickson, was named a
Sunkist All-American and
was among the first full
class of inductees into the
Port St. Joe High School
Athletics Hall of Fame.
Allan Bense, former
Speaker of the Florida
House of Representatives,
played for Springfield
Rutherford at the time
and remembered well his
match-ups with Langston.
"It was like Michael
Jordan playing against
some four-foot guy, it was
ridiculous," Bense said.
"He was so much better
than anybody. But what
impressed me was he was
such a humble person, a
humble winner."
Langston later was an
all-conference player at
Drake University and was
drafted by the NBA's Phil-
adelphia 76ers and Mem-
phis of the rival American
Basketball Association
(ABA).
After college, Langston
returned to Port St. Joe
and created the Norris D.
Langston Youth Founda-
tion, which has grown over


DAVID LANGSTON


11 years to provide college
scholarship money and af-
ter-school tutoring, men-
toring and motivational
programs to students in
eight Northwest Florida
counties.
The foundation also
conducted an annual ban-
quet and high school bas-
ketball tournament each
December at Chipola Ju-
nior College.
His programs particu-
larly targeted those at-
risk of falling through the
cracks, tailored to meet in-
dividual needs. State test
scores at schools across
the foundation's service
area improved, almost
uniformly.
"Sometimes the chil-
dren who are having a
tough time in life don't
have a lobbyist," Bense
said. "That lobbyist was
David."
Langston crafted the
10 hallmarks for success
which he preached to any
student who would listen.
Those characteristics in-
cluded listen closely, study
hard, read often, have
faith, understand the val-
ue of education and eco-


nomics and never quit.
Langston never did
when it came to his foun-
dation and his kids.
"He was a guy who
was so underestimated
when it came to his chil-
dren and his foundation,"
said Gulf County Super-
intendent of Schools Tim
Wilder. "When it came to
the foundation and his
students, he could be like
a mother bear looking af-
ter her cubs. He saw the
heartbeat in every child.
For those children who
started school behind, he
wanted to be the person
who connected that bridge
for those children who
most people might give up
on. He just loved kids."
Members of the Frank-
lin County School Board
passed a motion Tuesday
night to make a dona-
tion to the foundation in
Langston's memory.
"He was a great sup-
porter of kids," said
Chairman Jimmy Gander,
noting that Langston once
taught here in Franklin
County and that it was the
district's regrettable loss
that he moved away.

or funding."
Since their official open-
ing in September 2008, the
Carrabelle plant has sold
and delivered eight homes,
Attalla said, which he feels
is in line with their initial
projection of 20 homes in
the first year of operation.
He said orders are wait-
ing to be filled, and he has
been very pleased with the
quality of the local work-
force.
"The biggest problem
we have is with local banks.
It has become an ordeal for
people to get loans to build
a new house," he said.
The cottages are built
almost entirely from recy-
clable materials. No tox-
ins, wood or glue are used
in their construction. With
a steel frame, they are held
together with 3,000 screws,
each of which provides
three times the holding ca-
pacity of a nail. They have
foam cement insulation
and a cement board roof,
can withstand 150-mile per
hour winds, are fire-, mold-
and mildew-proof and have
high-quality, wind-resistant
windows.
GreenSteel houses are
shipped to construction
sites in three pieces. The
two halves of the base are
joined on the foundation
at the site, and the roof is
attached last. Then the
house plugs into water,
sewer and electricity. The
whole on-site construction
takes about two days.
McClure said the com-
pany is exploring the pos-
sibility of installing solar
panels on the units.
"We have had hundreds
of inquiries, leads and pro-
spective buyers," he said.
"Presently we are expand-
ing and drastically improv-
ing our marketing strategy.
The marketing system has
not kept up with Green-
Steel's technological ex-
pertise."
The company is partner-
ing with real estate brokers
in an attempt to respond
to leads. Domicile Origi-
nal Lifestyles is marketing
GreenSteel homes in the
western Panhandle, and lo-
cally, Sandy Beach Proper-
ties is pursuing leads.
"We see a very high po-
tential demand, but I'm not
making any outrageous
claims," McClure said.
"We'll explore anything.
Anywhere a flatbed trailer
can get in and we can do a

secure crane offload, we'll
consider shipping."
He said there have been
many inquiries from the
Florida Keys, and Green-
Steel is investigating the
feasibility of shipping
homes by train and barge
as well as truck.
Attalla and McClure said
GreenSteel has adjusted its
business plan to fit current
conditions.
"We're putting every-
thing we have into this," At-
talla said. "In today's econ-
omy; we're seeing much
more commercial work like
fire stations, police stations
and hospitals."
GreenSteel has pur-
chased a new piece of
equipment that allows the
factory to roll its own steel
and produce all of the parts
used in framing structures
on site in Carrabelle, At-
talla said. This will allow
GreenSteel to custom pro-
duce framing materials
for local contractors. The
equipment is being tested,
and he expects it to be fully
operational before the end
of March.
The Carrabelle plant
currently is constructing
four presold homes and
employs 15 workers, all
county residents.
GreenSteel also is eye-
ing an international mar-
ket. One upcoming project
is the construction of four
four-story houses to be
shipped to Gabon in Africa.
"They will house the
rich and famous of Gabon,
including the president's
son," Attalla said.
The houses going to
Africa will be in the form
of kits to be assembled on
site, an important product
in GreenSteel's new mar-


keting approach. "This is
an idea we always intended
to pursue at some point,"
he said.
The local factory also
will begin manufacturing
metal trusses and roofing
systems, a mainstay of the
market for the sister fac-
tory in Connecticut.
A delegation from Wash-
ington will visit the Car-
rabelle factory this spring,
Attalla said, and if they are
impressed, projects includ-
ing a 20-unit apartment
building and 1,100 homes
in Africa could be in Green-
Steel's future.
McClure said Green-
Steel's other plant has pro-
duced schoolrooms for as-
sembly in Africa as well as
commercial buildings like
hotels.
"Tony Attalla is concen-
trating on this plant now
and making it his top prior-
ity," McClure said. "He is
living in Lanark Village."
Working with him at the
Carrabelle factory is his
wife, Debora. Their dog
Bubba has become the of-
fice mascot.
"With the export and
commercial markets, our
operation could add on 20
to 25 jobs in the near fu-
ture," Attalla said. "OPEC
(Organization of Petro-
leum Exporting Countries)
is financing some of our
upcoming projects. I've
worked with the Import
Export Bank of the U.S. for
many years, too, and we
have some projects pend-
ing with them.
"We want to be ready
to provide the market with
whatever product is need-
ed," he said. "We're trying
to make this an economy-
proof business."

Carrabelle will pay tribute to America's
veterans this weekend when the Camp
Gordon Johnston Association hosts its an-
nual Camp Gordon Johnston Days March
13-15.
The event is a reunion of military veter-
ans who trained for World War II at Camp
Gordon Johnston (CGJ), a training base so
large it included St. James Island (exclud-
ing Carrabelle), Dog Island and St. George
Island.
Since the reunion's inception in 1996,
the three-day event has evolved into a
commemoration of all military veterans,
not just those who trained at the camp dur-
ing WWII.
Events begin Friday with registration
all day at the CGJ WWII Museum at its
new location at 1001 Gray Ave., Carrabelle.
There attendees can pick up name tags, re-
union schedule, dinner/dance tickets and
maps. Light refreshments will be served
during this time.
At 6 p.m., there will be a welcome recep-
tion hosted by American Legion Ladies
Auxiliary in Lanark Village, as well as late
registration. There is no charge for food,
but drinks must be purchased at the bar.
On Saturday, events get under way with
a breakfast hosted by the Masonic Lodge
on Avenue C, Carrabelle from 7:30-10 a.m.
Cost is $6 per person.
From 10:45-11:45 a.m., there will be a pa-
rade on U.S 98, with seating at the corner of
98 and Marine Street. Thanks to the efforts
of CGJ Post 82 American Legion (Sons of
the Legion) member Bill Miller and CGJA
board member Lt. Col. David Butler, USA
Ret. (also a Legionnaire), organizers have
received word from Tyndall Air Force Base
confirming the intent to have a flyover.
Miller and Butler sent their requests to
the 325th Fighter Wing Commander, Brig.
General Darryl L. Roberson, asking if there
were any scheduled training missions that
might possibly be diverted to the area as a
show of solidarity with the veterans.


Roberson replied there were no train-
ing missions scheduled for Saturday, but
showed keen interest in honoring veter-
ans. He noted that a flight was scheduled
to come to Tyndall from Nellis AFB, Ne-
vada at that time, and he has since directed
the flight to pass over Carrabelle between
10:45 and 11:30 a.m., contingent on favor-
able weather with no other hindrances to
the mission.
Following the parade, there will be stat-
ic displays of military hardware and re-en-
actors, as well as military vendors selling
collectibles.
At noon, there will be a complimentary
lunch in front of the fire station on Talla-
hassee Street, by the post office, sponsored
by the City of Carrabelle.
From 5 to 9 p.m., a dinner dance at the
meeting hall at the museum will be held,
with dinner beginning promptly at 5 pm.
Tickets will be sold in advance only.
On Sunday, at 9:30 a.m., there will be a
general membership meeting and report
by the museum curator, president, and
the head of the museum fund to inform all
members about long range plans for the
museum and the association. Next year's
reunion will also be discussed. This will be
held in the meeting hall at the museum.
After lunch, there will be a tour of the old
camp ground.
The Camp Gordon Johnston Museum
will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday,
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and from
9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.
Camp Gordon Johnston opened near
Carrabelle in 1942 to train amphibious
soldiers during WWII. The CGJ Museum
preserves the heritage of the men/women
and has compiled extensive histories, as
well as photographic displays of the area
and life as it existed at the camp.
The museum is located in the Carra-
belle City Complex on Gray Avenue in Car-
rabelle. For info call 697-8575 or go to www.

Winfield named to Freedom Classic's East squad


By Brad Milner
News Herald Writer

If you listen closely, you can hear a famil-
iar refrain emanating from the crevices of
basketball gyms in towns, such as Ponce de
Leon, Graceville, Chipley and Panama City.
As you get closer, it grows louder. Years
of territorial rivalry burst through the doors.
The chant is loud and clear: Beat the West.
The East boys and girls basketball teams
for the fifth annual Freedom All-Star Clas-
sic April 11 have been chosen. The boys,
coached by Port St. Joe's Derek Kurnitsky
and Bozeman's Cas Gant, seek to break the
2-2 stalemate in the series. The girls, headed
by Chipley's Tracey Dudley and Covenant
Christian School's Ty Farris, aim for a sec-


ond win in the event that has been
dominated by the West.
The East boys feature seven play-
ers from Bay District Schools. The to-
tal equals the 2007 East team, which
won 91-78, for the highest amount of
county participants on one squad.
The county contingent showcases
electric players and scoring threats DESI
Darrien Mack of Rutherford, Ethan DiWS
Roulhac of Bay and Mark Troncale
of Arnold. Rutherford's Barack Jack-
son, a quick guard who can score in bunches;
Mosley's Darryus Stewart, one of the more
well-rounded players on the roster; and
Covenant Christian's all-time scoring leader
Justin Schaefer also are on the team.
None of the five county public school
players accomplished what Vince Ventura


did, however. The 5-foot-10 senior
helped Bozeman to its first regional
appearance last season, while the
others failed to move out of the dis-
trict round. Schaefer also played in a
regional, albeit in the private school
Panhandle Christian Conference.
The five remaining boys on the
HAUN East roster all advanced to respec-
HFIELD tive regionals. The group is led by
Franklin County's Deshaun Winfield
and Marianna's Chris Blount. They
led their teams to the Class 2A and 3A Final
Four and each was a few points away from
moving onto the state championship.
Rounding out the East boys are Cotton-
dale's Jacob Herring, who helped the Hor-
nets to the Region 1-2A final; Graceville cen-
ter Gabriel Best, who aided a surprising run


to the Region 1-1A final; and Port St. Joe's
Fonda Davis, who combined his scoring
touch with shutdown defense for the Tiger
Sharks.
The East girls are opposite from the boys;
the majority of the team is from outside Bay
County. All 11 of the public school players
competed in state regional tournaments.
The roster features two pairs of dual en-
tries from the same team.
Graceville's Cayla Walker and Ashley
Hogans moved onto the Region 1-1A cham-
pionship game before falling to FAMU High.
The Bethlehem duo of Megan McDonald
and Tara Thompson helped their team to 18
wins in the regular season and a close de-
feat in the regional quarterfinal. McDonald
and Thompson are Bethlehem's first girls to
play in the Freedom Classic.


Basketball Jamboree

set for March 14
The basketball game that was origi-
nally scheduled for Feb. 28 was cancelled
due to the Franklin County Seahawks' re-
gional final game in Eastpoint against Cot-
tondale.
The Basketball Jamboree games have
been rescheduled for Saturday, March 14,
in the former Apalachicola High School
gymnasium.
Action will get under way at 10 a.m.
with two classes, one for players age 35
and over, and one for those age 34 and un-
der. Players must compete in their respec-
tive age group.
Cost of entry is $35 per team. The two
first place teams will each win trophies.
Refreshments will be sold.
Organizer Granville Croom said he is
looking forward to seeing a lot of support
at the game. Contact him at 653-2010 or
653-7643 to register before March 12.


Lady Seahawks top Liberty, Jefferson

Lady Seahawk Kendyl Hardy hurls
the softball during action last week
against Jefferson County.


By Christy Thompson
Special to the Times

The Lady Seahawks took on Blount-
stown, Liberty County and district rival
Jefferson County last week at home.
The first game against Blountstown
went in favor of the Tigers with a score
of 15-5. The Seahawks had trouble hitting
the ball in key situations to score run-
ners. A total of 16 Seahawk runners were
left on base. The Seahawks played well
through three innings but started mak-
ing fielding errors, and the Tigers took
full advantage.
Up next, the Seahawks faced Liberty
County, and for the second time this sea-
son, both JV and varsity defeated them.
The varsity game was low scoring this
time around and was won on the field


defensively. The girls managed to com-
mit only four errors, but those led to the
Bulldogs scoring two additional runs in
the 6-4 game.
The final game of the week was
against Jefferson County and the Se-
ahawks took down the district rival 16-1
to move to a record of 2-0 in the district.
Freshmen Morgan "Noodle" Newell
started the game as the pitcher for the
Seahawks followed by eighth-grader
Chena Segree and then junior Kendyl
Hardy.
The Seahawks have a tough schedule
this year and it was designed that way
with positive outcomes in mind. The team
is 2-0 in the district and will face North
Florida Christian March 12.
Christy Thompson is the coach of the
Lady Seahawks softball team.

rebound," Seahawks coach
Fred Drake said after seeing
Country Day's 6-foot-10 center
Wally Judge take over the game
in the final minutes.
Saddled with foul trouble
since picking up his third per-
sonal with 5:53 still remaining
in the second quarter, Judge
played with four fouls through-
out the fourth quarter. That's
when he scored seven of his
game-high 23 points and, more
importantly, produced five of
his eight blocked shots.
The Apaches opened a 14-
4 rebounding edge after one
quarter, eight of them on the
offensive end, and held a 33-25
margin for the game.
"Giving them two and three
chances to score was the prob-
lem," Drake said. "The effort
was there offensively and de-
fensively. We just couldn't deal
with their height and had to play
three guards a lot of times."
In addition to Judge, the
Apaches had 6-6 guard Rodney
McGruder, who had 21 points,
as well as 6-6 forward Amari


Bailey (12 points) and 6-5 for-
ward Delron Summey. Frank-
lin County countered with 6-6
freshman Carlos Morris and a
pair of 6-3 seniors in Deshaun
Winfield and Zan Simmons.
Winfield (22 points) and
Morris (20) combined for 32
of the Seahawks' 36 points af-
ter halftime. Franklin County
trailed 13-8 after one quarter
but stayed within 27-23 at half-
time.
The biggest lead of the
game was 32-23 when Country
Day opened the third quarter
with five straight points. The
Seahawks trailed 49-47 after
three quarters and took their
first lead, 53-52, when Winfield
scored with 5:14 remaining.
"They did what they were
supposed to do. I wanted the ball
in their hands the whole time,"
Drake said of Winfield and Mor-
ris. "I didn't want anybody to
shoot except those two."
A basket by Morris put
Franklin County ahead 57-54
with 4:13 left. Morris' final bas-
ket produced a 59-59 deadlock

with 3:14 to go.
Three blocked shots by
Judge followed, but the key
play, Drake said, came with 0:43
showing. Country Day led 61-59
when Dietrick Payne missed
the front end of the 1-and-l,
and Bailey's putback opened a
four-point deficit for Franklin


County.
"That deflated us a little bit,
but I think we proved to the
state of Florida that we can
play basketball," Drake said.
"At the end of the third quarter,
one of the referees asked where
we were from. I could tell they
gained a lot of respect for us."

A young black bear climbed the fence surrounding
Jackie Sukkau's yard in Eastpoint and broke into
chicken coops seeking food. At right, this chicken is
one of a dozen killed by the bear. The birds either
were eaten or hidden in shallow graves.

*a *Wildlife technician Ron Copley sets
nuisance bear in Eastpoint a trap that caught a nuisance bear in
Apalachicola.


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
Devastated by the loss of
more than a dozen birds she
kept as pets on her Eastpoint
property, Jackie Sukkau is
grateful for the work of two
wildlife officers in removing
a nuisance bear that plagued
her for a week.
In the early morning hours
of Feb. 17, Sukkau, a sergeant
at the Franklin Correctional
Institution in Carrabelle, went
outside to feed her cats and
Peta, a wild piney woods rooter
pig who lives on her porch.
She was shocked to find
two turkeys and a peacock she
kept penned in her yard all
dead on the ground.
When she got home from
work about 8:30 a.m. the
next morning, a dozen of her
chickens were dead as well.
All told, five turkeys, the
peacock and 12 chickens had
been slaughtered and either
eaten or hidden in shallow
graves by a young black bear.
"There were feathers
everywhere," she said. "In the
15 years I've lived here, I've
never had a problem with a
bear. I don't like him. I don't
want him around."
Sukkau said she believes
she has seen this particular
bear more than once crossing
the road at "dusky dark" near
a culvert adjacent to her yard.
Until now, it never attempted
to enter her yard.
But this time, he apparently
came over a wire fence
surrounding her yard and
broke into her animal pens to
feed on her pets.
Sukkau called the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) office
in Carrabelle, and wildlife
biologist Adam Warwick and
wildlife technician Ron Copely
responded promptly. They
asked her to leave the birds
where the bear had buried
them as bait to draw him back.
The two officers sat up
the next night, Thursday,
observing her yard, hoping
to dart the bear with a
tranquilizer gun or trap it.
"About midnight, we're


sitting there (in the truck)
watching, and we saw him,"
Copely said. We went and hid.
It took him an hour to walk his
way over to us. He was very
cautious."
The officers were unable to
capture the bear on Thursday,
so they stepped the bear hunt
up a notch.

An electric fence for Peta
On Friday, Copely came
and installed an electric fence
around Peta's porch. Sukkau
had expressed special concern
for the pig's safety.
"Peta is very special to
me," she said. "My mom died
two years ago in September,
and God sent me Peta in
November."
Home and business owners
plagued with bear problems
can borrow from FWC a
fence like the one Copely
installed until they can acquire
permanent electric fencing.
"We are taking this case
very seriously because there is
damage to livestock involved,"
Copely said. "We've got
equipment to lend in a case
like this. We even have bear-
proof trash cans for people to
try out."
FWC also set up a trap
to snag the intruder. After
working to eliminate all
other food sources in the
area, Warwick and Copely
succeeded in trapping a bear
on Feb. 23.
"We believe it's the same
one, although there's no way to
positively identify a bear that's
never been tagged," Copely
said.
He said the captured bear
was a young male and that it is
highly unusual for a black bear
to attack livestock.
"The bears are very hungry
right now. We believe this one
was inexperienced and didn't
know how to forage effectively.
His hunger overcame his
caution around human
beings," Copely said.
There has never been a
reported case of a black bear
attacking a human in Florida.
Their hearing and sense of
smell are so acute that they
usually retreat before people


are even aware of them.
A fed bear is a dead bear
The Florida Game &
Freshwater Fish Commission
lists black bears as threatened.
The hunting of Florida black
bears was banned in 1994.
Black bears feed
throughout the day and night;
however, they are most active
during the night and early
morning. Bears are omnivores,
meaning they eat both
vegetable and animal matter.
Long thought to only be in
search of honey, many bear
biologists now believe when a
bear cracks open a bee hive, it
actually is looking for both the
sweetness of the honey and
the protein provided by the bee
larvae.
When foraging, bears can
be very destructive. They
dig and claw at tree stumps
or rotting logs in search of
insects and destroy cabbage
palms and palmettos in order
to get at the tender heart.
Copely said it is important
never to leave any type of
potential food in an area
accessible to bears. Bears
easily become accustomed to
eating pet food and garbage if
they are left out and will make
a nuisance of themselves. Do
not feed bears. A fed bear is a
dead bear.
Copely said the bear
captured in Eastpoint will
be tagged and relocated. To
report a nuisance bear, call
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission at
850-265-3677.
Sukkau had nothing but
praise for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife officers.
"They sat out there several
nights watching. I know it
was cold. I felt so sorry for
them," she said. "They ran him
around for an hour one night
and couldn't catch him."
Sukkau has ordered a
special bear-proof electric
fence for her yard. According
to the FWC, electric fences are
more than 90-percent effective
in deterring foraging bears.
She said she would very
much like to replace the
peacock she lost, so if you have

Fighting like


cats and dogs


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
More questions concerning enforcement
of the county leash law were raised last
week when a citizen appeared before the
Carrabelle city commission pleading for
help and county commissioners discussed
the possibility of turning animal control
over to the county sheriff.
At the March 4 commission meeting,
Commissioner Cheryl Sanders suggested
that responsibility for animal control be
turned over to the sheriff's office.
"With the budget cuts, I personally feel
that the citizens of Franklin County would
be better served if the sheriff's department
handled animal control," said Van Johnson,
who supervises the department.
"We need a roundtable discussion when
we can bring all the players to the table on
this issue," Commissioner Smokey Parrish
said.
In a later interview, Sheriff Skip Shiver
said he is "willing to do whatever the people
of Franklin County need, but I could not
take over animal control operations without
additional funding. I don't have any extra
money in my current budget."

Chunky and Bobo are back
Pam Meredith, of Carrabelle, said she
would like to see some changes in animal
control. She is delighted that her pets
Chunky and BoBo are back, but three other
cats belonging to her are still missing. She


believes a neighbor
took them up into
Tate's Hell and
released them in
retaliation for a call
she made to animal
control.
Several weeks
ago, she said, pit
bulls belonging to her
neighbor attacked
another dog in front
of her house and
killed it. During the
struggle, Meredith
called animal
control to try and get
someone to pull the
attackers off the other
dog.
"It was horrible. I
still have nightmares
about it," she said.
Meredith said she
believes her neighbor
learned that she had
called for help and
then began trapping
her cats whenever
they strayed on to his


"If he takes
them and
dumps them
in the woods,
they won't
know what
to do. They'll
die."

Pam Meredith
Carabelle resident


property, and perhaps
even when they didn't.
She said he bragged at a local
convenience store that he had taken two
cats to the swamp.
Johnson confirmed that the neighbor was
the man who dropped one of Meredith's cats
off at the pound.
"I have 22 cats, and all but two are fixed,"
she said. "They are used to being fed. If he
takes them and dumps them in the woods,
they won't know what to do. They'll die."
She said one cat that had been taken was
blind.
Shiver said when an animal is
trespassing on someone's property, it is legal
to trap it and transport it to animal control.
But it is against the law, a third-degree
felony for animal cruelty, to harm it or to
transport it to another location.
One cat, Chunky, eventually was returned
to her by animal control after Carrabelle
Mayor Curley Messer's office called Johnson
on Meredith's behalf. She believes a second
cat, BoBo, made its own way back from the
swamp. It reappeared hungry and dirty but
safe.
Meredith complained that the neighbor's
pit bulls still are running loose, menacing
other animals and humans alike. But she is
happy to have some of her pets returned.
"I'm just going to try and keep them
inside as much as possible," she said.

The Times I B3


Escaping the bounds of my
troubled soul, to reach a place
of serenity, a feeling that can
only be achieved by letting go
and letting God.
Beholding the beauty of His
creation unfolding before my
newly opened eyes.
Hearing the stillness in
the sounds of nature, as it
resounds in rhythmic fashion


Carroll and Langley Family
We would like to express our
heartfelt thanks to Franklin
County Sheriff Skip Shiver and
Lt. Brad Segree, along with all
the deputies and employees with
the sheriff's office, including the
jail personnel. These fine people
assisted our family in a time of
crisis with dedication and thorough
leadership in law enforcement. We
acknowledge the kindness shown
by these officers to the children
in our family and appreciate
their concern for children in this
community. Their fine leadership
and dedication to their jobs shows
an outstanding concern for the
citizens of this county.
We also would like to say a
special thanks to Clarice Powell,
the victims' advocate for the
sheriff's office, for all her hard
work and concern shown to our
family during a serious time.
Clarice spent many hours working
with our family to help resolve the
issues facing us.
We also would like to take the
time to say thank you to the State
Attorney's Office, including a
special thanks to Patty Ward.
The above-mentioned people
went beyond their expected job
responsibility and helped to resolve
the issues we were facing. They did
this with kindness and dedication
and worked diligently to help our
family.
It is wonderful to see so many
different offices and people come
together to help resolve a situation
in their county. These people work
hard every day for the residents
in Franklin County without so
much as a thank you, and they well
deserve to be acknowledged for
all their hard work and dedication
to their individual positions in
Franklin County.
So we would like to publicly say
thank you to each and every one of
them for their help.
Sincerely,
The Carroll and Langley Family


according to His design.
I stand in awe of all He's
done, and know I'm blessed to
be a small part, to breathe His
air, to feel His love, to know
He's here and in my heart.
T. Gaskill
Love always,
Jason, Tasha and Lillie Gaskill, and
Mary Summer

a recent crisis. I would like to say to a huge "Thank You" to Lois
Swoboda and Richard Sands for all they did.
Bless you all,

Marie J. Vause
I would like to thank Tammy Carter, the 9-1-1 dispatcher at the
sheriff's office, Apalachicola Police Officer Pamela Lewis and the
Apalachicola first responders for arriving so quickly on the scene
Saturday night. Without their immediate response, the wrecked car
could have caught on fire and burned up my house as well as the house
of my next-door neighbor. I am grateful for their efforts and appreciate
them.
Sincerely,

TURNING OUT TO BENEFIT GRACIE


LOIS SWOBODA I The Times
Weems Memorial Hospital hosted a benefit luncheon for longtime employee Gracie Vaughn
on Feb. 27 to help offset the cost of Vaughn's treatment for chronic inflammatory demyelinating
polyneuropathy. The well-attended benefit featured boiled shrimp, fried fish, barbecued chicken and
all the trimmings, served under a tent on a clear but chilly afternoon.
During lunch, donated items were auctioned off to the crowd, and several booths were set up on
the site to display items on sale. Vaughn's mother, Muriel Bryan, formerly of St. George Island, is
pictured above with handcrafted night lights sold at the benefit for her daughter.

Welcome to all the World War II
veterans! Hope you enjoy the Camp
Gordon Johnston Days.
We got a nice surprise at bingo last
Wednesday. Sue Dowling, who
has been ill for some time and in
a wheelchair, walked in the hall
on her own thank you Jesus.
Pray for her further recovery.
Thanks to all who came to the
pancake breakfast last Saturday,
and thanks to the members
of the golf club, who held the
breakfast. Everything was very LA
good.

It was good to see and visit
with Sally Roberts, her daughter and
grandson. She was much better this
year and said she would be down more
often. Sally and her late husband, Julian,
were very active in the past, jumping in
and helping. Sally used to help serve at
the pancake brunches at The Boat Club,
and Julian was a past president of The
Lanark Village Association.
There will be a farewell breakfast


to top off the weekend. Members of the
association will prepare and serve a
full breakfast from 7-10 a.m. Sunday,
March 15. Everyone is welcome! Come
over to Chillas Hall, have a good
breakfast and visit with those
who fought for our freedom. Your
donation of $6 will be collected
at the door. The Lanark Village
Association will hold a covered
dish at 1 p.m. at Chillas Hall.
There will be a Reuben
sandwich lunch at Chillas Hall
NEWS on Saturday, March 21. Serving
elsh begins at 11:30 a.m. with a
sandwich, chips, pickle, dessert,
coffee or tea. Plan to join us! Your
donation of $8 will be collected at the
door. Hope to see you there!
Be kind to one another and check
in on the sick and housebound, and
remember ASAP also stands for Always
Say A Prayer.
Until next time, God Bless America,
our troops, the poor, homeless and
hungry.

On Friday and Saturday, March
| atr 13 and 14, the Dixie Theatre in
w al LApalachicola will present the sixth
in a series of popular concerts
over the last few years to feature
~o m e Nashville-area singer-songwriters.
This year's fundraiser for the
theater, "The Dixie Does Nashville
11 I6," features a host of talented
if11e singer-songwriters who can boast
of numerous awards as performers
and writers for the biggest
Nashville stars.
an s "Each night will leave you
spellbound by the wellspring of
talent before you," said Dixie
Partington, director of the theater.
Performing Friday evening will
be Erin Enderlin, whose songs have
been recorded by such stars as Alan
Jackson, Randy Travis and Terri
Clark. They include Jackson's top
5 hit "Monday Morning Church,"
which won a 2005 NSAI award as
one of the 10 "Songs I Wish I'd
Written." Lee Ann Womack recently
released the Enderlin-penned "Last
Call," now steadily climbing the
country charts.
She will be joined by Lori
McKenna, who was thrust into
the limelight when Faith Hill
included three of her songs on her
No. 1 album "Fireflies," including
Hill's poignant single "Stealing
Kisses." McKenna's fifth and latest
album traverses familiar domestic
territory: the family home's faded
curtains, threadbare rugs and
crowded dinner tables.
S4 Also Friday night will be Jimmy
Melton, one of the youngest
performers ever to appear on the
a world famous Grand Ole Opry. He
has appeared with such stars as
Chet Atkins, Bill Monroe and Earl
Scruggs, and his original songs
have been recorded by many
stars, including Hank Williams
Jr., Trace Adkins, Kenny Rogers,
Reba McEntire, Dierks Bentley and
George Jones.
On Saturday, the amazing
lineup continues with Barry Dean,
who had his first two cuts within
six months after signing his first
publishing deal in Nashville.
They were Martina McBride's
"God's Will" and Reba McEntire's
"Moving Oleta." Dean soon had
cuts by Carrie Underwood and Tim
McGraw
"He communicates from his
everyman soul, in that wonderful
way that makes people think he
wrote each song just for them," said
Don Schlitz, an inductee into the
Nashville Songwriters Hall of fame.
Dean will be joined by Tony
Mullins, making his third visit to
the Dixie. He has written songs
for numerous artists such as Tim
McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Clay
s Walker, John Michael Montgomery
and Lonestar. Chesney's version
of "How Forever Feels" was on
the Billboard charts for 32 weeks,
including six weeks at No. 1, and
won ASCAP 2000 Song of the Year.
Mullins' recent success includes
the Ricky Skaggs recording of
"Love Does It Everytime," found
on the Grammy-winning bluegrass
album "Brand New Strings." Rascal
Flatts took his song "Me and My
Gang" to the top five, and LeAnn
Rimes recorded the No. 1 single
"Something's Gotta Give".
Also on stage Saturday night is
Jeremy Spillman, whose songs have
been recorded by Lee Ann Womack,
Trace Adkins, Bobby Pinson,
John Michael Montgomery, Chris
LeDoux and Trent Willmon, to name
a few. The most distinctive thing
about Jeremy's songwriting is its
diversity. Drawing on his faith, his
rural upbringing and his passion for
all types of music, Jeremy is able to
craft songs that are both unique and
universal, that truly touch people.
Performances in Apalachicola's
theater are at 8 p.m. both evenings.
For tickets, call the box office at 653-
3200.

WHO WERE THESE HOMECOMING QUEENS?

Beverly Douds, busy working on an
upcoming book on Apalachicola, has
received lots of good photos, although
some helpful providers do not know
who is in the photo, or when the photo
was taken. She is reaching out to Times
readers for their help, in advance of her
mid-April deadline.
"So far we have more than 198
photos for the book, but there are a
couple of more I am hoping for," she
said. "I would love to get more photos
from the Hill, for example, Holy Family
School, the Tolliver family, Rose McCoy,
Dr. Fred Humphries, and Bell Smith. I
also need photos of the Marshall family,
the Wefing Marine Store, A.A. Core,
William Fry, and the Star of the Sea
School."
N _____Douds is available on Tuesdays at
Dolores Sweet Shoppe in Apalachicola.

SEA OATS AT MACLAY: Enjoying Maclay Gardens State
Park are, from left, Sea Oats Garden Club members
Bobbie Deese, Lynn Derck, Gail Phillips and Arlene
Oehler.


Sea Oats gardeners


take in Maclay


Lynn Derck. Bobbie
Deese, Arlene Oehler, and
Gail Phillips, members of
the Sea Oats Garden Club,
went to Tallahassee on
Monday, Feb. 23, to visit
Maclay Gardens State
Park.
The two-hour tour
included all the winding
paths of the garden where
the different varieties of
camellias were in bloom as
well as a tour of the Maclay
House.
Maclay Gardens has
been a state park since
1953, when the property
was given to the state of
Florida by Alfred Barmore
Maclay of New York, who
planned and developed the
gardens on the grounds
of his Tallahassee winter


home. Paths meander
through the Camellia Walk,
a walled garden, a secret
garden, a reflecting pond,
a hillside of azaleas, a
lakeside path and a Florida
Native Plant Garden.
The Florida Master
Gardener who led the tour
pointed out Air Layering
done on various camellia
plants to propagate
new plants. Members
purchased Maclay Gardens
Guide Books to share with
Sea Oats Garden Club
members.
If you are interested
in becoming a member
of the Sea Oats Garden
Club or want information
regarding club community
beautification projects,
contact Arlene at 697-9790.

great opportunity to bring
thousands of parents,
children, professionals,
advocates, community
leaders and concerned
citizens together to share


valuable knowledge
and information about
children's issues across
the state and in our state
Capitol."
In addition, during
February and March,
children in schools and
child care centers are
coloring and designing
paper cut-outs of their
hands which will travel
to Tallahassee to hang in
the State Capitol Rotunda
during Children's week.
Government leaders
are expected to sign
resolutions and hold press
conferences to proclaim
April 6 as Parents and
Children's Day throughout
Florida. Recognized in
state law, this day takes
place on the first Sunday
in April each year and

less a sufficient petition for
an administrative hearing
is timely filed under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes as
provided below. The pro-
cedures for petitioning for
a hearing are set forth be-
low.

A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected
by the Department's action
may petition for an admin-


-iorl a 32399-3000.
Because the administrative
hearing process is de-
signed to re-determine fi-
nal agency action on the
application, the filing of a
petition for an administra-
tive hearing may result in a
modification of the permit
and lease, or even a denial
of the application. Accord-
ingly, the applicant is ad-
vised not to commence
construction or other activ-
ities under this permit/
lease until the deadlines
below for filing a petition
for an administrative hear-
ing, or request for an ex-
tension of time have ex-
pired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4)
of the Florida Administra-
tive Code, a person whose
substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's
action may also request an
extension of time to file a
petition for an administra-
tive hearing. The Depart-
ment may, for good cause
shown, grant the request
for an extension of time.
Requests for extension of
time must be filed with the
Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tal-
lahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the ap-
plicable deadline. A timely
request for extension of
time shall toll the running
time period for filing a peti-
tion until the request is
acted upon. If a request is
filed late, the Department
may still grant it upon a
motion by the requesting
party showing that the fail-
ure to file a request for an
extension of time before
the deadline was the result
of excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely
and sufficient petition for
an administrative hearing
is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests
will be affected by the out-
come of the administrative
process have the right to
petition to intervene in the
proceeding. Intervention
will be only at the discre-
tion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion
in compliance with rule
28-106.205 of the Florida
Administrative Code.

In accordance with rules
28-106.111(2) and
b2-110.106(3)(a)(4), peti-
tions for an administrative
hearing by the applicant
must be filed within 14
days of receipt of this writ-
ten notice. Petitions filed
by any persons other than
the applicant, and other
than those entitled to
written notice under sec-
tion 120.60(3) of the Flor-
ida Statutes, must be filed
within 14 days of publica-
tion of the notice or within
14 days of such notice, re-
gardless of the date of
publication.

Under section 120.60(3) of
the Florida Statutes, how-
ever, any person who has
asked the Department for
notice of agency action
may file a petition within 14
days of such notice, re-
gardless of the date of
publication.

The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address
indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition for
an administrative hearing
or pursue mediation as
provided below within the
appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of
those rights.

A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the
Department's action is
based must contain the
following information:


1100
(a) The name and ad-
dress of each agency af-
fected and each agency's
file or identification num-
ber, if known;

(b) The name, ad-
dress, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner; the
name, address, and tele-
phone number of the
petitioner's representative,
if any, which shall be the
address for service pur-
poses during the course of
the proceeding; and an ex-
planation of how the
petitioner's substantial in-
terests are or will be af-
fected by the agency de-
termination;

(c) A statement of
when and how the peti-
tioner received notice of
the agency decision;

(d) A statement of all
disputed issues of material
fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate;

(e) A concise state-
ment of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the spe-
cific facts that the peti-
tioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of
the agency's proposed ac-
tion; and

(f) A statement of the
specific rules or statutes
that the petitioner con-
tends require reversal or
modification of the
agency's proposed action;

(g) A statement of the
relief sought by the peti-
tioner, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner
wishes the agency to take
with respect to the
agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not
dispute the material facts
on which the Department's
action is based shall state
that no such facts are in
dispute and otherwise
shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth
above, as required by rule
28-106.301. Under sec-
tions 120.569(2) (c) and
(d) of the Florida Statutes,
a petition for administrative
hearing must be dismissed
by the agency if the peti-
tion does not substantially
comply with the above re-
quirements or is untimely
filed.

This action is final and ef-
fective on the date filed
with the Clerk of the De-
partment unless a petition
is filed in accordance with
the above. Upon the timely
filing of petition this order
will not be effective until
further order of the Depart-
ment.

This permit constitutes an
order of the Department.
The applicant has the right
