County

jobless

rate worst

in decade

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Franklin County's jobless
numbers took a huge leap in
January as 63 more people
were added to the unemploy-
ment rolls.
According to preliminary la-
bor market statistics released
Friday by the Florida Agency
for Workforce Innovation, the
county's jobless rate rose to 7.0
percent in January, with 315
people, out of a county labor
force of 4,481, without jobs.
This marks the highest per-
centage ofjobless in the county
since January 1999, when the
unemployment rate was at 7.1
percent.
The January 2009 unem-
ployment rate, up sharply from
end-of-the-year numbers, was
1.5 percentage points higher
than in December 2008 and
nearly 3 points greater than
one year ago.
In December 2008, the la-
bor force was larger, with 4,572
people, and the unemployment
rate lower, at 5.5 percent, as
252 people were without jobs.
January 2009's numbers
were 2.8 percentage points
worse than a year ago, when
the county's jobless rate was at
4.2 percent, with 189 people un-
employed out of a labor force of
4,460.
Still, the county's unemploy-
ment rate placed it in a tie with
Okaloosa for 10th best in the
state in January. Liberty Coun-
ty has the state's lowest unem-
ployment rate (5.5 percent),
followed by Alachua County
(5.8 percent); Monroe County
(5.9 percent); Leon County (6.0
percent); and Union County
(6.3 percent.
Wakulla, Miami-Dade, Brad-
ford and Jackson counties all
posted better unemployment
numbers than Franklin. There
were 20 Florida counties with
double-digit unemployment
rates in January.
Florida's seasonally ad-
justed unemployment rate for
January is 8.6 percent, rep-
resenting 800,000 jobless out
of a labor force of 9.26 million
people. The state's unemploy-
ment rate is 1 percentage point
higher than the revised Dec.
2008 rate of 7.6 percent and is
up 3.6 percentage points from
the Jan. 2008 rate.
The state's current unem-
ployment rate is 1 percentage
point worse than the national
unemployment rate of 7.6 per-
cent. Florida's January un-

Stacy bares his soul

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
At first, the Franklin County middle and
high school students seemed more moved
by the bright sunny weather than the speak-
er who addressed them from the foot of the
stadium bleachers.
They murmured and flirted and carried
on, as young people do, while Siran Stacy, as
part of a special program slated for the day
before the FCAT tests, urged them to take
their studies seriously.
"What's the one thing that all of you have
to do?" he asked. "You have to graduate.
Anybody who doesn't want to graduate from
high school, raise your hand.
"To accomplish any dream, you have to
have that education," Stacy said.

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
When Rick Trickett, Florida State Uni-
versity's highly regarded offensive line co-
ordinator, sizes up a recruiting prospect
for the Seminoles, he looks for five things:
Smarts, mental toughness, work ethic and
character.
And by the way, fifth on the list is athletic
ability.
"You ain't tough, you ain't going to last,"
he told American Legion Post 106's annual
dinner Feb. 26. "I want guys who are hard
workers, guys who have a work ethic.

talk, the students seemed half-interested,
some tuned in, others not.
He told how he grew up one of six chil-
dren in a poor family in Alabama, dreaming
of one day playing football for the Crimson
Tide.
Maybe the Seahawk crowd had heard
it before, and maybe the pressure of the
statewide testing that week was distracting
them.
That was, until the moment he told of a
day 15 months earlier, when a drunk driver
with twice the legal limit of alcohol in his
blood struck his family's car and killed Sta-
cy's wife and four of their children.
The only sound anywhere even near the
bleachers was the shriek of a seagull in the
distance.

road, and my whole family was gone," he

Pre-K



student left



alone in



parked bus


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
A 4-year-old pre-kindergarten student
was mistakenly left alone on a school bus
in Eastpoint for about four hours March
12 until an alert employee of a nearby car
repair shop heard him crying for help.
According to the detail call sheet from
the sheriff's office, Sgt. Tim Register was
dispatched to C & S Service Center, 231
U.S. 98, at 11:39 a.m. after Lt. Bobby Shiv-
er, who was off-duty at the time, notified
the sheriff's office.
Shiver had been called by owner Char-
lie Nichols after his son, Clay, who works
at C & S, discovered the boy "screaming
and crying from the area of the school
bus," according to the call sheet.
Clay Nichols told police he walked over
to the bus, parked behind C & S, and "saw
a kid through the bus window."
After opening the door and bringing
out the boy, who was "very sweaty and
crying," Nichols took the boy inside and
gave him something to drink.
Register transported the boy to the for-
mer Brown Elementary School and told
principal Kay Cadwallader what had hap-
pened. She then called the boy's mother,
Amanda Richburg, of Lanark Village, and
told her what happened. The boy was fed
lunch.
"I put him on the bus at 6:55 a.m. I got
a call from the schoolhouse at 12:30 p.m.,
and they said (he) was found on the bus,"
Richburg said.
Transportation Supervisor Robert
Coursey also was notified and informed
Superintendent Nina Marks. The boy's
parents, Richburg and Sammy Kilpatrick
Jr., arrived at the school and were briefed
on the incident by school officials, Regis-
ter wrote.
Marks said the bus driver, Judy Pate,
has been suspended pending completion
of the investigation.
"I am unable to discuss the details of
the case at this time," Marks wrote in an
e-mail.
To best coordinate transfer and arrival
of pre-K students from around the county,
there are two legs to the bus trip.One bus
had picked the boy up that morning in La-
nark and took him and his classmates to
the consolidated campus. The students
then are taken off the various buses and
transferred to the one that takes all of
them to Brown.
According to Register's incident re-
port, the bus monitor, Patricia Hollenbeck,
said when the bus arrived at Brown, "she
had gotten off the bus and entered the
lunchroom to finish some paperwork, and
when she returned outside, she noticed
(Pate) was talking to another parent. Ms.

ABC School to get $200,000 in capital outlay funds


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
The county school board will
share with the Apalachicola Bay
Charter School a little more than
$200,000 in capital outlay money
this year, and likely a similar
amount for each of the next
three years.
The board unanimously ap-
proved the deal March 10, which
stipulates that the ABC school
will get 5 percent of the district's
available capital outlay revenues


each year, through the end of the
2011-12 fiscal year, which ends
June 30, 2012.
The district levies a 1.25-mill
property tax on county taxpay-
ers each year, with the monies
earmarked for capital outlays.
Sam Carnley, the district's
finance director, estimated that
5 percent of these capital outlay
monies will total a little more
than $200,000 this fiscal year,
with a likely drop in the near
term.
"The estimate now is (capital


outlay revenues) will drop by as
much as 25 percent next year,
and it will be around $170,000,"
said Don Hungerford, principal
of the ABC School.
The school's intent, he said,
is to use the money to help bring
the former Chapman Elemen-
tary School up to par.
"We're in the final stages
of negotiating the purchase of
Chapman," he said. "Our intent
is to turn right around to repair
and upgrade Chapman."
He said the Chapman deal


still has to be made final.
"The reasons we did it this
way is that the two are not
hooked together," Hungerford
said.
He offered thanks to the
board for the capital outlay deal,
which has roots in a compromise
last year after the board decided
not to share revenue with ABC
School employees from the four-
year half-mill levy earmarked for
pay raises.
"That was a very tense time
for a lot of people," he said.


Hungerford said the school is
in the process of working with its
engineer, Tom Driggers of Gul-
ford-Driggers, based in Mexico
Beach and Albany, Ga.
He said Driggers is assessing
air conditioning, electrical and
plumbing at the former Chap-
man school. The school also is
looking into having work camp
inmates perform other duties
and has hired a separate air
quality engineer, Ed Locke, to

Winner of the 2009 St. George Island Lighthouse Quilt is Merrie Lowe, of
Macon, Ga., and the island. Lowe, pictured above, was elated and could not
believe she won the quilt. The SGI Quilters usually make a queen-size quilt
each year, and this year they decided to make a wall hanging for the chili
cook-off depicting the restored lighthouse at night. They already have started
working on a queen-size quilt of the lighthouse in daylight to be raffled at the
2010 cook-off. All proceeds go to the SGI Volunteer Fire Department and First
Responder Unit.

inquire into mold issues.
"Right now, they've estimated it will
take $150,000 to $200,000 to bring it up to
snuff," he said. "We anticipate that we will
continue do upgrades over four years.
This will be phase 1. Each year we would
replace carpeting and add insulation."
Hungerford said the school is looking
to restore Chapman to a solar school.
"It would be neat tor resurrect that,"
he said. "I think it's a super lesson. In the
green age, what a great thing to have for
children."
In the event details are worked out with
the school board, "we would be hoping to
move in late June and start school in the
fall."
The current 11-acre campus would con-
tinue to be used as an auxiliary campus,
for outdoor education and possibly adult
education, for at least two years. The St.


Joe Company, which donated the land to
the school, has stipulated that it be used
for education for at least 10 years, and
April 2009 will complete eight years on the
site.
"The lease portables will end up being
returned, and some of the purchased ones
will be sold. Many of the originals will stay
here until a new usage," Hungerford said.
"Some people have definitely expressed
interest in affordable housing.
"We're still making payments for two
more years on portables, and it will cost
about $150,000 paying them off over the
next two years," he said.
Right now, the ABC School has about
306 students in grades kindergarten
through eighth.
"We'll increase about 10 percent yearr"
Hungerford said. "The board is looking to
stay in the 330-student range."

until you bury your wife, your son, your
daughters. That is what I walk through ev-
ery single day.
"I got to a point I wanted to leave this
world," he said.
Stacy had opened his talk with details
of his run-in with the law as a young man,
when he fell in with "certain people."
A relative had robbed a jewelry store
and wanted Stacy to fence the goods, which
he did.
"It wasn't long before they were coming
to pick me up," he said.
Not only did the mistake cost him a
scholarship, but it sent him to a juvenile jus-
tice facility, where he was locked in a cell 23
hours a day.
Ultimately, he got an opportunity to play
at Coffeyville Community College in Kan-
sas and saw just how long a road back to his
dreams he now faced.
"Nobody cares about your dreams, no-
body cares about your aspirations," he told
the students. "But you do. You got to hold
on; you got to stay steadfast."
After going back to summer school to
earn his high school diploma, Stacy set off
on a 33-hour bus ride to rural Kansas, where
he was dropped off at 3:30 a.m. and had to
walk the rest of the way to the campus.
"I'll never forget when I heard those
gears starting," he said. "I seen those tail-
lights in the back of it, and I was by myself.

cided on Alabama, where he was a two-year
starter and two-time All-SEC performer.
Later he would play in the National Foot-
ball League, Canadian Football League and
NFL Europe.
"If a small town country boy like me can
do it, you can too," he said, before leading
the students in a chant of "I can do it."
Stacy wrapped up his remarks, before
taking students' questions, by broadening
his focus beyond athletics and academics.
He urged students to say no to drugs and
sex, and avoid the kind of temptations that
can lead to death and disease.
"Your body is your temple," he said.
"Just say 'I've had enough. I'm sick of this
drug game.'
"You may have made mistakes, but if you
don't give up, I promise you it will pay off,"
he said. "It comes down to choices. It comes
to you being honest who you are.
"Get on the right track, and I promise
you you're going to shake the world," Stacy
said. "Never define yourself by a mistake.
We all make mistakes."
Stacy's presentation was the center-
piece of an outreach by the Fellowship of
Christian Athletes, part of a day-long spirit
day designed to help relax students in ad-
vance of the standardized testing. The el-
ementary students took part in games on
the other side of the school.

Stimulus funds Hazy memories of the blackberry jubilee year


target wildland



fire protection

In an address to the International Association of
Firefighters Monday, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vil-
sack announced several projects for wildland fire pro-
tection and removal of hazardous fuels that will begin
immediately.
These USDA projects, funded by the American Re-
covery and Reinvestment Act will create thousands of
jobs in California, Colorado, Florida and Oregon.
"President Obama is delivering on his promise to the
American people to create jobs," said Vilsack. "These
private sector jobs will increase forest restoration and
decrease the size and inten-
sity of wildland fires. Pro-
viding healthy forests puts
men and women to work and
makes communities safer
aand healthier."
USDA received approxi-
mately $33 million from the
American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act to fund
wildland fire management

USDA anticipates creating 25,000 new jobs during
the next two years on projects relating to land stew-
ardship and watershed restoration, green infrastruc-
ture repair and in the production of energy from wood.
Many of the most affected communities of the econom-
ic downturn are located near national forests. Rural
jobs are being created on millions of acres in need of
restoration work so that money can flow into local com-
munities.
The following projects are being implemented im-
mediately:
In Florida, a statewide hazardous fuels reduction
program and a public safety and educational campaign
are under way because of recovery act funding. Not
only will this reduce threat to communities at risk from
wildfire, but also it provides protection to the large
number of vacant and foreclosed properties around
the state. Direct stimulus through contracts, services,
supplies and salaries will help the hard-hit economy
throughout the state.
In California, $1.5 million of recovery act funding
will create jobs across Northern California. The project
work will include fuel reduction work near communi-
ties, Forest Service recreation facilities and access
routes, and will also maintain facilities to reduce de-
ferred maintenance while making crews available for
fire suppression when needed.
In Colorado, $5 million of recovery act funding
has been targeted to remove dead trees along 150
miles of roadsides affected by the large-scale moun-
tain pine beetle infestation. In addition, fire preven-
tion projects to remove hazardous fuels around pri-
vate property and communities-at-risk and critical
municipal watersheds serving Denver and the Front
Range are under way.
a In Oregon, initial wildland fire management proj-
ects totaling $16.5 million have been identified. Many
of these projects are associated with the Youth Em-
ployment Initiative and will offer work that supports
natural resource management and conservation edu-
cation.
Announcements of additional Forest Service proj-
ects funded by the recovery act are expected in the
coming weeks. More information about USDA's efforts
regarding the recovery act is available at www.usda.

ernment's efforts on the economic stimulus is available

RED W


pink azaleas have been AND
strutting their stuff for weeks. Denis
The camellias have had
their big run but are still
hanging in there while the new
spring kids burst out onto the
playground. My pear tree was an
over-achiever. It was the first year
for blossoms, and they appeared
entirely too soon. We had a late
freeze that just might have done
them in. I respect the grapes. The
last frost date for our area is March
20. Beware if you plant before then.
Those who believe in luck and
have the competitive spirit start with
tomatoes. The people who can give
away the earliest crop win the envy
of those who can't seem to grow a
decent tomato any time of year.
What a love-hate relationship
we have with tomatoes. We all
have taste memories of big, juicy
beefsteaks the size of a softball. We
often settle for grocery store Italian
plum tomatoes because, though
small, they most closely capture the
real tomato flavor we crave.


All of my tomato-growing
experiments have been
abysmal failures. I think part
of the problem is that I don't
have a well. Using city water
to keep a garden going turns
into a costly enterprise.


LI Take, for example, the
NHITE blackberry experiment.
ROUX I bought four blackberry
e Roux bushes from "Just Fruits and
Exotics" in Crawfordville
a few years back. I dug a
two-foot trench in the back yard
and enriched it with potting soil. I
watered the plants with the hose,
but it just wasn't enough. I lost every
single plant.
I was sad because I have been
able to pick wild dewberries (they
grow on vines) and blackberries
(they grow on bushes) most of my
life. Of course, we ate as much as
we picked, but Mama always had
enough to make a cobbler topped
with thin slices of lemon.
Every year, I search for places to
pick. I remember one late afternoon
returning from Tallahassee. I had
on heels and hose, but I spotted
dewberries on the roadside. I pulled
over and grabbed an empty soda
cup from the front seat. I stumbled
among the briars, brambles and
rattlesnakes to fill the cup. I ate
them out-of-hand on the way home,
reassuring myself that it was an


insufficient quantity for a cobbler.
I remember the year of
blackberry jubilee. It must have
been in the '70s or early '80s. The
Apalachicola airport was deserted
and was a popular location for
dove hunting. My memory is hazy
here, but I believe portions were
baited with millet, then watered and
fertilized. I can't speak as to the crop
of doves taken, but I can tell you I
have never seen blackberries like
that.
Mama and I went daily to pick
and pick again. We had never seen
anything like it. Huge berries, sweet
berries, thousands just for the
taking. We had the luxury of being
picky, taking only the most perfect.
I remember picking blackberries
on the Island and blueberries up
Highway 65. Those locations are lost
to me now.
We are blessed to live in a place
where we can castnet for mullet, hog
oysters, hunt deer, birds, and hogs;
cane-pole fish for bream, warmouth,
and bass; run a trot-line for catfish;
gig flounder; trap crabs; and snorkel
for scallops.
I like gathering food. Help me find
those berry-picking spots again.

Letters to the EDITOR


School grateful for
board support

To the Editor,
At the March 10
Franklin County School
Board (FCSB) meeting, the
board voted unanimously
to share 5 percent of
their available capital
outlay money with
the Apalachicola Bay
Charter (ABC) School, a
public school of choice.
The 5 percent this year
should produce slightly
over $200,000; however,
next year it will likely
produce less as property
evaluations drop. The
intent is for the ABC
School to receive 5 percent
of the capital outlay each
year for the next four
years.
The arrangement for
these funds was loosely
agreed upon last spring
when I was able to reach
a last minute compromise
with the FCSB during a
special Memorial Day
meeting. As a public school,
my board and I felt that our
staff and students should
have been included in any
of our local tax dollars
that were generated. The
compromise was that I
would encourage all the
ABC School supporters
to back the passing of a
special referendum. The
referendum would produce
operational money that
had been earmarked for
employee raises. In return,
the FCSB would share an
undetermined amount of
capital outlay money to
help the ABC School work
toward a permanent facility.
Even though there were
skeptics on both sides, the
majority of ABC school
supporters backed the
referendum and fortunately
it passed. I am pleased to
share that the FCSB has
stood behind their capital
outlay promise.
FCSB Chairman Jimmy
Gander and board member
David Hinton had both
been opposed to sharing
referendum funds with the
charter school because
they felt the law did not
clearly provide for the
sharing of referendum
funds. However, these
board members as well as
all other board members
are very committed to
allowing the charter school
to receive capital outlay
money.
The ABC School
is planning to use the
$200,000 in capital outlay
funds to make needed
repairs to the Chapman
Elementary School.


Negotiations for the
ABC School to purchase
Chapman from the FCSB
are in the final stages and
will hopefully be finalized
by early next month.
Last fall, the FCSB went
on record supporting
the charter to have the
first right of refusal on
all surplus real property
and material property. I
have been very pleased
at the level of cooperation
from both the new FCSB
and the administration of
Superintendent Marks.
Everyone seems very
committed to serving the
best interest of all Franklin
County students.
Our ABC School Board
and staff are eagerly
anticipating the move into
the Chapman facility and
repairs are scheduled to
begin next month. It is our
hope to receive a grant
to restore Chapman to
a solar school. Modern
day technologies should
be considerably more
effective than the original
solar equipment back in
the late 70s.
We are very grateful
to the FCSR and


Superintendent
all of their coop
support.
Sincerely,
D

Florida judges to move

particularly relating to
court record preservation,
to court administrators
who are appointed by
and report to the judges
themselves. This move
represents a breach in the
important separation of
powers between the clerks
and the judiciary, and I
feel the public will suffer.
The clerk's office keeps
our court system running
in a transparent, fair and
orderly fashion.
Judges preside over
cases and courtrooms.
Their actions in cases are
documented in court files,
through which they are
held accountable to the
public. The preservation
of case files and court

into the justice system.

elective The importance of the
fer the separation of powers was
ice of the further demonstrated
finistrator when the Florida
strators Legislature adopted
d circuits. Article V, Revision 7 to the
*cts of our State Constitution, making
ernment, the clerks a self-sustaining
da's Clerks entity, funded by the fees

ished in state dollars. Besides
tution to creating an independent,
rests of sustainable funding
like all source, the Constitution
ights and anticipated the clerks
re aren't collecting revenues for
*rve the the state, and, in fact,
we may since 2004/2005, the clerks
theirr have returned nearly $1.4
sts. billion to the state budget
members coffers.
ay not The clerks agree that a
he clerk's dedicated, stable, adequate
, clerks funding source must also
blic's be created for the judicial


branch of government,
including Florida's state
attorneys and public
defenders. We believe the
clerks play in integral role
in this effort through our
collection of court fees.
However, funding for the
clerk's office must not be
jeopardized to achieve this
goal. Since the clerks serve
as the first line of contact
with our court system for
the public, an effective and
well-funded clerk's office
ensures the public's very
access to justice.
Thus, clerks must set
the record straight with
regard to the inflammatory
and false information
being spread about
our own budgets. This
misinformation campaign
seems intended to fuel
efforts to grab clerk's office
funding and duties under
the guise of efficiency
and reform. There is
misinformation being
generated that clerk's
budgets have increased 33
percent from fiscal year
2004/2005 until 2008/2009
while the court's budgets
have increased just 13
percent.
The truth is that actual
clerk spending grew by 13.7
percent over the past four
years. My court-related
budget increased only by
3.65 percent for that period,
and actual expenditures
increased by 5.70 percent.
Clerks' budgets are based
on money we project we'll
collect. Since Franklin
County doesn't receive lots
of revenue, we are a deficit
county and receive part of
the budget from funds sent
to the state by other clerks.
However, my office has
returned $748,574.44 to
the State, which is about
73 percent of the amount
received. This doesn't
include the other monies
we remit to the state from
fines and fees collected.
The office of the clerk
was established in the
Florida Constitution to
maintain a system of
checks and balances within
the judicial branch and
within county government.
I believe it is essential
that the fundamental
responsibilities of the
clerk, which are protective
of the public, remain
within the scope of these
independently-elected
Constitutional officers. I
hope you agree with me,
and take the opportunity
to publicly oppose this
legislation.
Sincerely,
Marcia M. Johnson

The Times I AS


Story and photos
by Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

On any Sunday
evening a visitor to
the Apalachicola
Fitness Center,
would hear clanking steel,
metal music and grunts
of pain and effort as the
county's own power
lifting team prepares for
the second annual USA
Southern Benchpress and
Deadlift Championship
to be held April 18 on St.
George Island.
Tim Whitehead, a
certified personal trainer,
oversees the team's
practice session and urges
the athletes on.
Of course most of the
lifters are hunky guys with
barrel chests and bulging
pectorals, but not every
team member fits the
stereotype of a weightlifter.
On March 8, two of the
elite team preparing
for competition were
women. They took time to
comment on their unusual
avocation.
Kathy Castner
works as a server at the
Apalachicola Seafood Grill
and Steakhouse. She said
she has always liked to
exercise and began lifting
weights last year. She is
a dainty woman and on
Sunday she wore sparkling
silver earrings to weight
practice. In the first island
competition she took a
trophy for bench pressing
115 pounds and dead lifting
150.
"I was nervous last year
but I think that just goes
with it," Castner said. "I'm
absolutely looking forward
to this year. There will be
more women competing.
The divisions go by age and
weight. I love to exercise. I
also do treadmill and all of
the machines in the gym.
It's actually very good for
the soul and the mind. I
was in Seattle for a month
this winter and I even
opened a membership at
the gym there."
Megan Lamb, who
works at the Apalachicola
National Estuarine
Research Reserve, is best
known to Franklin county
residents for her many
roles in local theatre. She
is a pretty girl with bobbed
brown hair. She is also in
training to lift weights in
competition for the first
time this April.
"Tim's been telling
me for several years I
should do this. It's a new
challenge. I've never
been in a competition
like this," she said. "Tim
is very good. He pushes
us but never makes us
do anything we're not
comfortable with."
Whitehead encourages
everyone to come to this
year's weight competition
and support Lamb,
Castner and the other
members of Apalachicola's
power lifting team..
"Anyone 14 years and
older can compete," he
said, "but anyone can
come for a good time
on the beach. After the


competition there will be a
beach party too.
The USA Southern
Benchpress and Deadlift
Championship will be


hosted by the Apalachicola
Fitness Center and is
being organized by Time
Whitehead and George
Herring owner of Bodies


by Herring in Suwannee,
Georgia.
Herring, who is a
20-time world champion
lifter, will emcee the event.

"Governor Crist has
emphasized job creation
and stimulating Florida's
economy by developing
budget priorities that fo-
cus on these principles
and translate federal
stimulus dollars into ac-
tion," said Agency Inter-
im Director Cynthia R.
Lorenzo. "We are work-
ing diligently to ensure
federal stimulus funds
are distributed quickly to
have significant impact on
increasing benefits and
enhancing our services to
Floridians."
Crist last month un-
veiled budget priorities
for Fiscal Year 2009-10 as
well as recommendations
for the use of American
Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act funds. The
governor's recommenda-
tions will enhance efforts
to expand services for
Florida's Unemployment


Compensation recipients,
ensure educational suc-
cess for Florida's children
through quality early
learning programs and
keep Florida's workforce
competitive.
According to informa-
tion released by the White
House, the economic stim-
ulus funding will create or
retain 206,000 jobs in Flor-
ida over three years.
Crist's recommenda-
tions include using nearly
$77.8 million in federal
funds to match job seek-
ers with Florida busi-
nesses and train workers
for opportunities created
by the federal stimulus
package. This recommen-
dation includes nearly $37
million to assist dislocated
workers and $21 million
for youth work programs.
The governor's bud-
get proposal includes in-
creased funding for the
state's free Voluntary
Prekindergarten (VPK)
program, now in its fourth
year. The governor is re-
questing an additional
$22.7 million to maintain
the current per-student al-
location for the anticipated
growth in enrollment.
Crist also has request-
ed $3 million to restore
funding for Florida's
School Readiness Pro-
gram, which will allow
Florida to qualify for $105
million in federal stimulus
funds for eligible parents
to receive state-assisted
quality child care so they
can work.


on a request made by Viet-
nam vet Larry Hale, a fel-
low Marine who once tried
to sell Trickett and his wife
a house on St. George Is-
land.
"He told me 'I promise
you as soon as the season's
over,' and he kept his word,"
Hale said.
Trickett served in the
26th Marine regiment, H
and S Company at Khe
Sanh, in 1968 during the Tet
Offensive in Vietnam.
But in front of the Le-
gion Post, the only war sto-
ries Trickett shared were
about the trench of turf that
separates 300-pound Semi-
nole tackles from their op-
ponents on the other side of
the pigskin.
Game by game, he went
through the 2008-09 season,
sharing insight into the tri-
umphs and defeats that
marked Bobby Bowden's
52nd year at the helm of a
college football program.
Highlighting his pre-
sentation, one that gath-
ered statewide attention,
was Trickett's disclosure
that earlier that afternoon,
he and the university had
agreed to a one-year con-
tract extension that will
keep him in Tallahassee
through at least the 2010
football season.
Trickett's attorney, Bud-
dy Brown, told the press
that afternoon that FSU
"did not meet the reason-
able request" he made but
that his client had agreed
to a new deal out of a loyal-
ty. Trickett earned $300,000,

'I'm going to coach
for that guy'
Prior to the 2007 sea-
son, Bowden lured Trickett
away from West Virginia,
where he was assistant
head coach. But it wasn't
the first time Bowden had
discussed a job with Trick-
ett, as he had talked to
him in the late 1980s when
Trickett was coaching the
offensive line at Mississippi
State.
"Coach Bowden gave
me an interview at his
home, but I didn't get the
job," Trickett said. "I said
one of these days, I'm going
to coach for that guy."
Trickett left Mississippi
State in 1993 to coach five
years for Terry Bowden
and then one year as head
coach at Glenville State, his
alma mater in West Virginia
where he years earlier was
an all-conference strong
safety after returning from
Vietnam.
He spent a year under
coach Nick Saban at Loui-
siana State University in
2000, where he coached
three all-Southeastern
Conference linemen, and
then spent five years at
West Virginia before being
lured to FSU.
In all, more than 20 of
Trickett's former players
have gone to play in the
National Football League.
When he got to FSU,
Trickett told the Legion
dinner, he soon realized
some slimming down was
in order, such as in the
case of a 6-foot, 4'2-inch,
364-pound lineman who
carried around 40 percent
body fat.
"I told them Jenny
Craig was going to be there
tomorrow," Trickett said.
"I didn't run anybody off.
They decided to leave."
After that first year,


when seven Seminole
players packed their gear,
Trickett was forced to play
several freshmen this past
season, including the na-
tionally televised match-up
against Clemson, which
FSU won 41-27.
Sophomore Rodney
Hudson was among those
younger players who start-
ed that game, and Trickett
recalled him running to
the sideline and exclaim-
ing "Coach, this happened
a lot faster out there than it
did in practice."
Last season opened with
FSU blowing out Western
Carolina and Chattanooga,
but then it came time to
face then-No. 18 Wake For-
est.
"They have two guys
going in the first round,"
Trickett said. "They may
have the first linebacker
taken."
The Seminoles started
three true freshmen and
lost 12-3.
"We were the youngest
football team in the coun-
try last year," Trickett said.
"We need to bounce back
and beat Wake Forest next
year."
Trickett said "the kids
grew up" in the Colorado
game, which they won 39-
21, and with that confidence
went on to defeat Miami the
following week.
He said for 14 straight
seasons, the "Noles were
ranked fifth or better. "I'm
not sure anyone's going to
get back to that," he said.
In the victory over North
Carolina State, the 'Noles
lost a young player to in-
jury, but, Trickett joked, "I
thought 'no problem.' We'll
take that freshman out, and
we'll put another freshman
in."
He said of the team's
10 lineman dressed for the
season, eight had never
been in a college game be-
fore. But, he stressed, he's
seen good numbers they
have posted on their college


board entrance exams.
"You get smart people,
they can comprehend and
do," Trickett said. "When
you get issues, then you get
problems."

Learning how to finish
well
A survey of FSU's foot-
ball records dating back to
2000 shows that in terms
of the first six games of the
season, the 'Noles' record
rivals that of the University
of Florida and University of
Southern California.
Trickett said of the 10
football games the 'Noles
have lost in the last two
years, the team was win-
ning eight of them when the
fourth quarter started.
"For the last six games
of the year, our records are
not the same," Trickett said.
"The big thing we're work-
ing on is 'finishing.' You got
to get that thing swinging
back on track."
Trickett touched on the
losses to Georgia Tech,
Boston College and Flori-
da, and offered high praise
for Gator quarterback Tim
Tebow.
"He's a heck of a foot-
ball player," he said. "He's
smart, and he'll learn."
Trickett said he still has
his eyes on a national cham-
pionship and that there's
plenty of talent in the state
and region, even after the
Gators get first dibs.
He mentioned fresh-
man All-American Andrew
Datko, a 6-foot, 6-inch, 282-
pound left tackle who post-
ed a score of 1200 on his col-
lege boards.
"I always look for a good
heart," he said.
Trickett said 17 players
left the team before the sea-
son ever started, including
"two 5-star recruits I ran
out of here.
"We feel good about the
class we got coming in,"
he said. "We're grinding it
pretty good right now."

Seahawks undefeated in district softball play


Story and photos
by David Adlerstein
The Times
The Seahawks varsity
softball team moved
themselves into first place
in the district after beating
North Florida Christian 4-3
March 12 at home.
Things started off with
sophomore pitcher Shelby
Shiver striking out the
first batter and then the
Seahawks defensively
handling the next two
batters in the line-up.
The Seahawks took
advantage of their first
time up to bat by scoring
two runs on a triple hit by
Morgan "Noodle" Newell.
The energy level among the
girls was high and being up
by two runs had relieved
some of the pressure.
It wasn't until the top

of the forth inning when
North Florida finally got on
the board with three runs.
The Seahawks committed


two errors that led to these
runs.
"We were fortunate this
time to come away with the


victory despite errors," said
Coach Christy Thompson.
The Seahawks came
back in the fifth inning,


scoring two more runs on
an error made by North
Florida to put this one a
little further out of reach.


The girls played solid
defense for the next couple
of innings and locked this
one down. Freshmen second
basemen, Harley Tucker
singlehandedly made two of
the Seahawks three outs to
end the contest during the
7th inning.
"The Lady Seahawks
became the leader in the
district after this win," said
Thompson. "It felt good to
see the girls celebrate and
congratulate one another
after the game. Playing
together and supporting
each other through seven
innings makes a world of
difference. "This is the
season that was envisioned
for the girls and I plan to do
mybestto keepthemfocused
on positive outcomes. We are
on track toward obtaining
that reputable goal, to be
the district champions!"

Luna moths big, beautiful and brief


A few months ago, my
friend, Bruce McKinnon,
sent me this picture and
asked what it was. Bruce is
the campground manager
at Womack Creek
Campground up in
Tate's Hell State
Forest. He found
this beauty resting
on a wall of the
bathhouse one
morning.
The animal in WI
question is a Luna BUGGI
moth, orActias Lois
luna. Native to
North America, they
are a rare but lovely sight.
These moths are
members of the Saturniidae
(sat-turn-eye-dee) family,
also known as giant
silkworm moths, royal
moths and emperor moths.
They are one family of


Lepidoptera (butterflies
and moths), which has
an estimated 1,300 to
1,500 species worldwide.
Lepidoptera literally means

scaly wing.
The feathery or
iridescent scales
covering the wings
of most moths and
butterflies are what
give them their
gorgeous coloring.
The giant silkworm
moths are among
the largest and
most spectacular of
the moths.


Adult Saturniidae are
characterized by large size,
heavy bodies covered in
hair-like scales, lobed wings
and small heads. Most
adults possess wingspans
between 1 to 6 inches, but
some tropical species, such


BRUCE MCKINNON I Special to the Times


as the Atlas moth (Attacus
atlas), may boast incredible
wingspans of up to 12
inches
Luna moths are huge


moths, with a wingspan of
four and a half inches. They
have a white body, pinkish
legs, and huge pale green
wings. The hind wings have


eyespots and long tails.
Luna moths feed only
as caterpillars. The adult
moth has no mouth. The
female Luna moth lays
eggs on the bottom of black
walnut or hickory leaves.
She lays about 200 eggs
in small groups of six or
seven.
The eggs incubate for
one to two weeks before
hatching into caterpillars.
The caterpillars feed for
about a month and shed
their skin five times before
retiring into a cocoon. About
two weeks later the Luna
moth emerges. Adults live
less than a week. Luna
moths fly only at night in
spring and early summer.
If you find, as Bruce did,
a Luna or any large moth
perched in the open during
the day, it is at the end of its

then got back on the bus,
and Ms. Hollenbeck was
dropped off at her resi-
dence."
Richburg said her son
told her he tried to open the
door but was unable to.
"He said he jumped up
and down in the seat un-
til he fell asleep, and then
when he woke up for be-
ing too hot, he cried some
more," she said.
Richburg said she had
taken him to the doctor,
and he's OK. She also has
asked to have the bus driv-
er fired.
"He's a real needy kid.
He always needs some-
body there with him," she
said. "They failed to do a
walkthrough of the bus.
What if he got off that bus
that was right there by the
highway?"
Richburg said the boy
usually rides in the third
seat behind the driver.
She said she decided to
pull him out of school for


several reasons: this inci-
dent, a different one that
happened four months ago
and treatment of the chil-
dren by a teachers' aide.
"I'm going to try and put
him in Wakulla County next
year," she said.
The earlier incident was
a time when the boy had
left the line to go to the
bathroom, unbeknownst to
his teacher, Mary Williams.
When Richburg arrived to
pick the boy up at school,
he could not be located un-
til about five minutes later,
when a teacher approached,
holding him by the hand.
"My first response (after
the bus incident) was what
the heck, this is the second
time this is happened. The
first time they lost him at
the schoolhouse," Rich-
burg said. "I was never lost
at school, never."
Williams said she now is
doubly careful not to let any
child slip away unnoticed.
"From then on, every
corner I turn I count them.


lifecycle.
One more thing, Bruce's
moth was a male. You can
tell by the large bushy
antennae. Female antennae
are comb-like too, but
thinner. The male uses his
very bushy headgear to
locate a mate by scent.
Although giant silk
moths, like the Luna moth
are rarely seen, they
are not considered to be
endangered.

Every little inch we're
counting them," she said.
"It was my fault. That was
awful, and there wasn't any
call for that, either."
Richburg said she really
likes Williams as her son's
teacher but has heard that
one of the aides speaks
loudly to the children, and
that concerns her.
Williams said because
some students have a long
bus ride to school, they can
be tired in the morning.
"That's early for him
to get up. He's sleepy a lot
in the morning," she said.
"He'll rest a little bit when
he gets back from break-
fast.
"They are sitting on that
bus for a long time," she
said. "She's a very good
mother, so she comes and
gets him every day in the
afternoon and takes him
back to Lanark Village and
then she has to go to work.
She didn't want him sitting
on the bus for a long period
of time."

REMEMBERING A WORLD AT WAR


PHOTOS BY LOIS SWOBODA I The Times
In Saturday's parade, Rick
Reichard, of St. Augustine,
mounted on the motorcycle and
Andrew Puckett, of Gainesville,
portrayed some of the British
troops once posted at Camp
Gordon Johnston. The pair
is part of a group of World
War II re-enactors based in St.
Augustine.


Wilbur Smith, of Albany, Ga.,
a faithful guest at the camp
reunions, was on hand with
his grandson and promised
to return next year. Another
loyal guest, Willard Plunkett of
Birmingham, Ala., was unable
to attend because of poor
health. The museum staff and all
of Carrabelle wish him well and
look forward to seeing him next
year.


Marion Dunbar, of
Crawfordville, and her daughter,
Barbara Taillefer, were at the
Camp Gordon Johnston museum,
which houses Maj. Robert
Dunbar's uniform, on Saturday.
The late Robert Dunbar was an
early supporter of the museum
and acted as grand marshall of
the parade for five years.


Arthur James Creighton Jr. visited
Carrabelle on Saturday for
the first time since his year of
training here during World War
II.


Camp Gordon Johnston
Days welcome new faces,
large crowd

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
With perfect weather and several first-
time visitors, this year's Camp Gordon
Johnston Days last weekend was the best
ever.
Museum director Linda Minichiello said
250 people, including three bands, took
part in Saturday morning's parade. She
estimated there were 2,000 to 3,000 people
lining the streets, the most the event has
attracted since it began in 1996.
"A whole lot of people came who had
never been here before, including six World
War II re-enactors from St. Augustine," she
said. "They said they'll be back next year
with a bigger group. They may actually set
up an encampment.
"There were people who came to see
the museum and left because it was too
crowded. We know we didn't get everybody
to sign in. This was something the city can
be proud of," she said.
Grand marshals this year were
Carrabelle Mayor Curley Messer and retired
Baptist minister, World War II vet and Camp
Gordon Johnston chaplain Gene Hallstrom.
William Massey, Carrabelle's supervisor
of streets and roads, organized the free fish
fry held at the fire house after the parade.
He said his crew served 550 plates of mullet,
grits and baked beans.
One first-time visitor was Arthur James
Creighton Jr., a retired Army reserve officer
who began his military career as a member
of the U.S. Maritime Service.
President Franklin Roosevelt established
the U.S. Maritime Service in 1938 to train
officers and crews of U.S. vessels that
engaged in commerce. Before World War
II, those who had been turned down by the
Army, Navy and Coast Guard (usually for
medical reasons or because they were too
old or too young) were welcomed into the
Maritime Service.
Creighton, who trained at Camp Gordon
Johnston during 1944, was typical of these
recruits. He told this story of his wartime
service.

Only 17 but applied anyway
"I grew up on Lake Michigan and sailed
on the Great Lakes when I was a kid.
During the summer, I'd actually stay on
the boat and every year I went to the race
between Chicago and Mackinac. I wanted
to be in the Navy.
"When I turned 17, a friend and I went to
enlist. He got in and I didn't because I wore
glasses.
"I enlisted in the Maritime Service and
went to boot camp at Shepard's Bay in
Brooklyn, N.Y They found out I had a lot of
experience and knew about boats.
"I did ATS (Army Transport Service)
officer training in St. Pete, sailing onboard
the Joseph Conrad, and graduated just
before Christmas.
"I was in New Orleans getting ready to
ship out when I saw a note posted.
"It read: Men wanted with small boat
experience. Must be 21 years of age. I was
only 17 but applied anyway.
"They told me there was a new program
starting up, the Army Transport Service.
They asked me if I wanted to join up, and I
said OK.
"This was Macarthur's thing. He wanted
boats to transport troops in the Pacific, his
own little navy almost.
"They asked ifI wanted to come in as
a private or a second lieutenant. I said
I'd rather be an officer They said I had to
have a federal background check. That
didn't take long. They just had to call the
high school. By the time they finished my
paperwork, I had turned 18."
Creighton said there was often some
confusion and disorganization in those last
days of the war.
"They sent me to Camp Gordon Johnston
as a trainer
"The day I arrived, a jeep pulled up by
me full of German POWs. The guard got
out, and when he went to do something, he
handed his gun to one of the prisoners. I
said 'What are you doing?' He said 'Where
are they going to run away to?'
"The first duty I remember was to teach
a class in demolition. I was younger than
most of the men and knew nothing about
demolition. It was ludicrous."

Transport to the Pacific
"In 1944, my unit got orders to report to
San Francisco for transport to the Pacific.
Everybody but me: My orders sent me to
Seattle.
"I took a train to the Seattle Point of
Embarkation and reported. They said they
had no orders for me and after weeks of
waiting told me it had all been a mistake.


By then, my outfit was gone. I was on my
own. They sent me back to Tallahassee,
where I immediately boarded a train to
San Francisco.
"In California, we left the train
and boarded a ferry that took us to the
transport. We walked down one ramp and
up the other There were guys standing
around with machine guns to make sure
we didn't get lost, and the Red Cross
was there with Christmas packages and
doughnuts. I think they gave each of us a
wallet.


i Rosalind Ryan, an
r85-year-old veteran
who served in the
Marines during
World War II but
did not train at
Camp Gordon
O W Johnston, traveled
the parade
route in comfort
Saturday. Ryan, a
Brooklyn native,
is the mother
of Carrabelle
resident, Paul
Osterbye.


"We shipped out on the SS Hawaiian
Shipper We were the first commercial
vessel to cross the Pacific without a
convoy since the war began. They told us
not to worry because it would be a good
crossing and they had lots ofsupplies and
movies. It turned out they had one movie,
'Orchestra Wives' with Glenn Miller
"It took 48 days to travel from
California to Papua, New Guinea,
because they changed course five times.

The end of an era?


Rumors have circulated that this
year's might have been the last Camp
Gordon Johnston Days celebration.
Museum director Linda Minichiello
said the festival's future depends on
funding, even though the event is an
economic windfall for local merchants.
"We don't get any funding for this
anymore," she said. "Things cost
money. It's $1,300 for transportation
for the Army Band, and we feed them
because we didn't feel like we wanted
them to pay."
She said many local businesses are
strapped because of the economy and
are unable to contribute to the event.
"Camp Gordon Johnston Days are
quite a boon to the city," said Suzanne
Zimmerman, director of the Carrabelle
Chamber of Commerce. "The visitors
stay overnight, and they use the


restaurants and visit other businesses.
I wonder if there isn't some kind of a
grant they can get."
"It's fundraise, fundraise, fundraise,
and that's exhausting," Minichiello
said. We need at least $3,000 to put this
on. My feeling is that once we are out
of the city complex and out of the city,
we'll stop it."
Next year, she plans to set an amount
and make a decision in December
whether to stage the 2010 reunion.
Minichiello said this year's event
received generous donations from
Walmart, Winn Dixie and especially
Publix.
William Massey, who organized the
fish fry, wished to give special thanks
to the Carrabelle IGA and Dollar Store,
who donated everything but the fish to
make the meal possible.

suffering wife of Bob, a
septuagenarian who used
to have a roving eye. Bob's
been on his best behavior
for the past 20 years, but
when Margaret Faydle
takes up residence at
Riddle Key, Bob goes back
into action.
"Match Wits with Min-
ka Lupino," Riddle Key's
ever-sunny, ever-helpful
receptionist. Minka is a
fan of crime novels who
becomes an avenging an-
gel on a mission to rid the
retirement community
of its predators: conniv-
ing heirs, sticky-fingered


health-care workers,
salesmen and contractors
who prey upon helpless
senior citizens.
The Philadelphia En-
quirer noted about this
play, "'Murderers' is an el-
egant, pitch-black comedy,
as compelling to watch as
it is to hear. High-defini-
tion characters, surprise
twists and sharply comic
turns...masterly writing."
The New York Times
said, "There's no point
wondering whodunit -
Jeffrey Hatcher's new play
tells us that right off the
bat. The fun is finding out
how they dun it and why."
Don't miss this wonder-
ful final production of the
Dixie's busy season. Call

fice at 653-3200.

Psychologist to


lead program on


effective parenting


Improving parent-child
relationships is the focus
of a series of discussion
sessions to begin at 6
p.m. Monday, March
30, at Franklin County
Consolidated School.
This free program is
sponsored by Franklin
County Schools and
coordinated by school
psychologist Al London
and guidance counselor
Wanda Teat. There will be
a small fee if you would
like to purchase the
textbook.
The discussions will be
based upon the principles
from Systematic Training
for Effective Parenting
(STEP), one of the oldest
and most widely used
parenting education
programs in the country.
More than 3 million
people throughout
the U.S., Canada and
other countries have
participated in STEP
discussion groups and
used the accompanying
parent's handbook since
American Guidance
Service (AGS) of Circle
Pines, Minn., introduced
the program more than 20
years ago.
STEP encourages
mutual respect between
parent and child,
increased cooperation,
more effective
communication and a
more responsible, self-


reliant attitude among
children. London has been
using the program with
good results ever since its
inception and considers
it a well-organized
approach to helping
families develop effective
relationships.
"The program is built
on firm psychological
principles yet stops short
of family counseling," he
said. "Its positive focus
is more on management
and understanding of
behavior."
Coupled with guidance
counselor Wanda Teat,
the two will offer a
series of seven Monday
night sessions covering
such topics as drug
prevention, managing
anger, single-parent
families, stepfamilies,
responsibility, lying
and using humor as a
parenting tool. Please
attend all sessions
and commit yourself
to an effective way of
developing relationships
within your family.
The purpose of the
STEP group is to consider
new ideas and see ways
to apply them to various
family situations.
Space is limited, so
contact either Teat or
London at the Franklin
County Consolidated
School at 670-2800 to
reserve a spot.


at 5 p.m. and run until
done.
Don't miss out on the
fun and great prizes, which
include a $50 gift card to
Walmart and certificates
for lunches and dinners
at the local restaurants.
Be sure to enter to win a
fishing daytrip!
The Relay for Life
will be May 15-16 at the
Franklin County School.

contact Mike or Amanda
at CVS at 653-8737. Hope to
see you there!

FWC nabs drunk drivers
Officers from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sioner assisted the Franklin County
Sheriff's Department with the an-
nual St. George Island Chili Cook Off
on March 7.
Officers Steven Cook and Chasen
Yarborough were responsible for
two DUI arrests made after they ob-
served erratic driving exhibited by
the subjects. The subjects' breath
alcohol levels were .151 percent and
.194 percent.


Under Florida law, DUI can be
proved by impairment of normal fac-
ulties or unlawful blood alcohol or
breath alcohol level of .08 or above.
A first conviction carries a fine of be-
tween $500 and $1,000, except when
the blood or breath alcohol level is .15
or higher or there is a minor in the
vehicle, in which case the fine is be-
tween $1,000 and $2,000.

Troopers to conduct vehicle
inspections
Members of the Florida Highway


Patrol plan to conduct driver's li-
cense/vehicle inspection checkpoints
during daylight hours at the following
locations in Franklin County:
March 20-26: County 374, County
30A and State 300 (St. George Island
Causeway).
March 27-31: State 30, State 30A,
and State 65
All personnel participating in the
checkpoints will be responsible for
following the procedures outlined in
the Florida Highway Patrol Policy
Manual regarding driver's license
and vehicle inspection checkpoints.


Volunteers needed

for 'Wall That Heals'
"The Wall That Heals," a traveling, half-scale rep-
lica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington,
D.C., will be on display in Apalachicola's Veterans Me-
morial Plaza from April 30 to May 3.
Event organizers are planning several events
around the replica's arrival. Chief among them is the
reading of the some 58,000 names of soldiers killed in
Vietnam.
The names will be read throughout the four-day ex-
hibition, a task that will require numerous volunteers
reading in 15-20 minute shifts.
Tom Daley, who is coordinating the reading of the
names, said he would like for groups such as church-
es, schools, VFW posts or other organizations to vol-
unteer their time and manpower.
Daley can be reached at 813-695-5562.

Cape St. George Light to be dedicated April 4


Lighthouse historian Neil L.
Hurley, author of "Florida's
Lighthouses in the Civil War,"
will deliver the keynote
address at the April 4
dedication ceremony for the
restored Cape St. George
Light.


PRECIOUS PEEPS


Reclaiming her title as the Panhan-
dle Peep Show diorama contest's cutest
contestant, 2 12-year-old Kenzie Barber,
above, delivered her entry to The Star
office Monday. Barber constructed the di-
orama under the watchful eye of "Nana"
Traci Gaddis of Mexico Beach. Entitled
"Picking Seashells," the work depicts the
Gaddis/Barber family in various states of
repose.
Peeps representing Kenzie, her par-
ents Derric and Jennifer Barber, Nana
Traci and Papa Gary Gaddis, along with
pooches Boo Boo and Susie, relax in the
sun amid seashells Kenzie plucked from
a nearby beach.
Barber was the youngest contestant to
enter last year's contest. Her latest mas-
terpiece is on display at The Star office in
Port St. Joe. For contest rules and an of-
ficial entry form, see the ad in this week's
paper or visit www.apalachtimes.com

The Cape St. George Light,
reconstructed in 2008 for the
fourth time in 175 years, will be
formally dedicated in a ceremo-
ny on April 4.
The ceremony will begin at
10 a.m. at the base of the light-
house in St. George Lighthouse
Park, at the center of St. George
Island.
"So many people have con-
tributed their time and resourc-
es to making the reconstruction
of our historic lighthouse pos-
sible, and now it is time for all of
us to come together to celebrate
our success," said St. George
Lighthouse Association Presi-
dent Dennis Barnell.
The lighthouse originally
was on Little St. George Island
and collapsed on Oct. 21, 2005.
The reconstruction project was
completed in November, and the
lighthouse opened to the public
on Dec. 1, 2008.
A highlight of the dedication


ceremony will be the keynote
address by lighthouse historian
Neil E. Hurley, an early sup-
porter of the effort to rebuild the
lighthouse. A former command-
er with the U.S. Coast Guard
and historian for the Florida
Lighthouse Association, Hur-
ley visited the Eastpoint brick
storage site to view the remains
of the lighthouse in June 2006
on his way back from filming a
PBS lighthouse documentary in
Pensacola. He was instrumen-
tal in determining construction
details of the lantern room and
assisted with research that con-
tributed to rebuilding the histor-
ic lighthouse.
Hurley's interest in light-
houses began years ago when
he serviced lighthouses on Lake
Superior while assigned to the
USCG buoy tender Sundew. His
subsequent tenure on the staff
of the Aids to Navigation Branch
of the Seventh Coast Guard Dis-


Franklin County High School students competed on Friday,
March 13, at the annual Tallahassee Democrat Brain Bowl
competition held at Tallahassee Community College. The team
placed after six rounds of competition and returned for the second
day of the tournament.
"This is still a young team," said Coach Barbara Sanders, local
attorney. "By the time they are seniors and have studied the upper
level math and science, they will be a very strong team."
Front row from left are Maggie Langston, Savannah Salyer
and Nic Koch. Back row, standing from left, are Coach Barbara
Sanders, William Sapp, Tomilee Dowden and Lakota Humble.
The team will travel in April to compete in Orlando at the
Commissioner's Academic Challenge, a statewide academic
competition.

trict in Miami introduced him to
Florida's lighthouses. One of his
responsibilities was to respond
to questions from the public
about lighthouses in the state,
and he found much of the avail-
able information was inadequate
or inaccurate. The research he
began has resulted in the publi-
cation of many articles and four
books on Florida lighthouses, in-
cluding "Florida's Lighthouses
in the Civil War," published in
2007.
The celebration will continue
into the afternoon with a chick-
en barbecue fundraiser for the
Lighthouse Keeper's House Mu-
seum, which will be built on the
west side of the lighthouse. The
building will be a replica of the
original brick keeper's house
and will house lighthouse arti-

Cape St. George Light.
