Questions raised about design of Riverfront Park


By Lois Swoboda and David Adlerstein
Times Staff Writer
Concern among Apalachicola
residents about the design of the
city's Riverfront Park led to a flurry
of meetings early this week, and a
decision to modify some of the design
elements.
Two state grants totaling $400,000
are funding the park construction,
whose central feature is a $56,000
fountain that will circulate water.
The fountain idea had sprung
from design ideas suggested by the


University of Georgia's Riverways
South committee, who incorporated it
into the report they submitted to the
city last year.
"We kind of scaled it down some and
brought it before the city's waterfronts
committee for their approval," said
Cindy Giametta, the city grant writer.
"The one they had designed took up
half the park and we scaled it back."
That committee, empowered to sign
off on designs for city-owned property,
approved the idea earlier this month,
although not all the members were
clear that they had done so.


Harry Arnold, chairman of the
waterfront committee said he did not,
and would not, have approved it. He
said the committee had other ideas,
including a shrimp boat that was
donated. CityAdministratorBettyWebb
said the city has recommended that
boat be placed on the city's Bodiford
propery, on Water Street between
Gander's and B-9 Boat Works.
Committee member Roy Solomon
said he did not recall the fountain being
mentioned prior to the committee's

Jenkins left early legacy as prominent innkeeper


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

At a time when most African-Americans were struggling, Spartan
Jenkins was a prosperous and resourceful local businessman
who ran the finest hotel in Apalachicola.
Born in Eufaula, Alabama in July 1858, Jenkins came to
Apalachicola as a lad and went on to become one of the most successful
men in the county.
The 1870 Eufaula census lists him as 13 years of age and attending
school. In that record, he is listed with his widowed mother, Ann Jenkins,
age 35, a domestic servant, and his sister, Eliza Jenkins, 7.
Sometime between 1870 and 1880, Jenkins' mother met Daniel Fry, a
widowed, white, steamboat captain and moved with him to Apalachicola
with Eliza and Spartan in tow, along with a second son, Harry whose
father was probably Fry.
According to Lee Williams' paper on "Black Apalachicola," Fry and
Ann Jenkins continued to live together until his death on March 18, 1894.
His last act, completed on his deathbed when he was completely blind,
was to leave all of his real property to Ann Jenkins and her sons.

Carrabelle 'sets

the bar' with

Shriners' weekend


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
Perfect weather and
local hospitality made a
Shriners' convention held
in Carrabelle last weekend
an outstanding success.
"We have set the bar
for all future events,"
said David Jackson, who
organized the party. "They
couldn't believe we'd done
something so big in a little
town like this. They don't
know Carrabelle."
On Friday and Saturday.
the Shaddai Shriners of the
Panama City district, of
which Carrabelle's Shrine
Club is a part, came to
town to stage their Spring
Initiation Ceremony
when new candidates are
inducted into the Shrine.
Jackson said 14 new
members were welcomed
into the fold but not before
performing a highly original
and amusing set of initiation
tests. Four of the new
members were sponsored
by the Carrabelle club.
"There was nobody who
was not impressed, from
the ladies luncheon at the
Crooked River Grill to the
banquet at C-Quarters on
Saturday night, everything
was great," said Jackson.

80 women, was unusually

far away as Atlanta and

County gets good

news on jobless front


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

Franklin County got a
whiffofgoodnewslastweek,
when the state reported
the unemployment
rate declined by nearly
1 percentage point in
March.
According to
preliminary labor market
statistics released Friday
by the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation,
the county's jobless rate
dropped to 6.8 percent last
month, with 318 people, out
of a county labor force of
4,698, without jobs.
This meant 35 fewer
people were on the jobless
rolls in March than in
February, when the
unemployment rate stood
at 7.6 percent, with 353
people without work out
of a smaller labor force of
4,615.


Last


month's


unemployment rate was
still 3 percentage points
higher than one year
ago, when in March 2008,
the labor force stood at
4,639 people, but only 177
were without jobs, for an
unemployment rate of just
3.8 percent.
The county's
unemployment rate tied it
with Wakulla for sixth best
in the state last month,
behind Jackson, at 6.7;
Leon, at 6.2; Alachua and
Monroe, both at 6.1; and
Liberty, at 5.2 percent.
There were 26 Florida
counties with double-digit
unemployment rates.
Franklin's 6.8 percent
jobless rate for March is
more than 3 percentage
points better than the state
average of 9.7 percent,
which represents 893,000
jobless out of a labor force

Solving the mystery of Indian Creek's sick mullet


Recently the Franklin
County Board of County
Commissioners asked
me to investigate reports
of "sick" mullet being
caught in Eastpoint in the
Indian Creek area.
When I checked
with local residents
and fishermen,
what they showed
me was about a
half-dozen silver
mullet with open
sores (ulcers) W
on their bodies. I AROI
contacted Catalina BillI
Brown, a biologist
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC)
Fish-Kill Hotline, who
arranged for fresh
samples of the mullet to
be sent to her laboratory.
Once the fish arrived,
it was determined that
the mullet were infected
by a water mold that goes
by the scientific name of
Aphanomyces invadans
(Ai). The following is some
general information about
the disease.
In Florida, ulcers in
estuarine fish have been
observed since the late
1970's. Unlike the rest of
the eastern seaboard of
the United States where
menhaden are primarily
affected, multiple
species of estuarine and
freshwater fish with
ulcerative mycosis (UM)
have been reported. In
prior studies, UM-type
ulcers appeared to be
a mixed syndrome with
a number of potential
bacterial and fungal
pathogens implicated.
However, the appearance
of large numbers of
fish with ulcers in the
spring of 1998 refocused
scientific investigations
into potential causative
factors.
Since the outbreak


JU
il


in 1998, research
conducted by the FWC
has implicated Ai as a
significant cause of ulcers
in Florida estuarine
and freshwater fish. In
addition, Ai
infections have
Been found in
estuarine fish
along the East
Coast of the U.S.
and in Southeast
Asia, Japan, and
)RLD Australia. In
ND YOU these other areas,
Mahan the infection is
called "ulcerative
mycosis," "epizootic
ulcerative syndrome,"
"mycotic granulomatosis,"
and "red spot disease."
Ai has a life cycle
that consists of three
different stages: hyphae,
zoospore, and cyst.
Changes in the aquatic
environment (such as a
change in salinity or water
temperature) cause Ai
to undergo rapid asexual
reproduction. During
this time thousands of
swimming "spores" are
released into the water.
These "spores" then
search for a fish host. The
"spores" infect the skin
of the fish and cause the
development of bloody
skin ulcers. If a host is
not found, the zoospores
become cysts and sink to
the mud or sediment.

What is an ulcer?
An ulcer is defined as
the localized shedding of
dead skin tissue, exposing
the underlying dermal or
muscle tissue. The ulcer
may have rough or raised
irregular margins and will
often appear bloody or
rotten.
Ulcerated estuarine
fish have been collected in
coastal areas throughout
Florida. Scientists at

A view of a menhaden with ulcerative tissue.


FWC's Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute
(FWRI) have found that
several types of molds/
fungus can cause the
ulcers. However, at this
time only Ai has been
found statewide.
Routine monitoring
of the health of fish in
Florida estuaries is
conducted monthly by
a partnership between
FWRI's Fisheries
Independent Monitoring
(FIM) group and Fish and
Wildlife Health group.
Fish with gross external
abnormalities, including
ulcers, fin rot, tumors, and
skeletal abnormalities
are culled by FIM during
monthly random fisheries
assessment sampling
trips in Apalachicola Bay,
Cedar Key, Tampa Bay,
Charlotte Harbor, South
Indian River Lagoon,
North Indian River
Lagoon, and the St. Johns
River.
These culled fish
are sent to FWRI
headquarters in St.
Petersburg for diagnosis.
Data from this random
sampling show that out
of the thousands of fish


examined in the field, less
than 0.1 percent of the
fish in Florida estuaries
suffer from Ai infections,
and less than 1 percent
experience gross external
abnormalities.

Variety of species
are affected
The most commonly
affected estuarine fish
are striped mullet,
silver mullet, and
sheepshead. Other
affected species have
included black drum,
pinfish, American shad,
pigfish, red drum, Atlantic
croaker, and gray snapper.
Stressed fish are more
likely to become infected
with disease. Fish are very
sensitive to changes in
the aquatic environment.
Rapid changes in salinity,
temperature, and/or water
quality can cause fish to
become stressed, leaving
them open to infection.
Changes in salinity in
estuaries can occur from
natural occurrences
such as local watershed
basin run-off, or run-
off from severe storms
and hurricanes, or from


artificial manipulations
of water levels in bodies
of water. These rapid
changes in the aquatic
environment may stress
the fish and increase their
chances of infection by
various diseases.

Mortality and
fungal infections
Fish don't necessarily
die from infections of Ai.
Scientists have observed
lesions in various stages
of the healing process
in different species
of fish. These fish are
frequently found in
higher salinity water that
may have helped, along
with the fish's immune
system, to eliminate
the fungus. However,
it is very difficult to
obtain data on fish
mortalities: weakened,
dying, or dead fish may
be eaten by predators
or be found when
decomposition interferes
with determining the
cause of death. Secondary
bacterial infections in
the open ulcer may also
increase the likelihood of
mortality.


How can I help?
If you see or catch any
ulcerated fish, please
call the Fish Kill Hotline
(1-800-636-0511) or fill
out an online report at
http://research.myfwc.
com/fishkill/submit.asp.
Report what type offish
had an ulcer, how many
fish have them, the location
where you caught or saw
the "sick" fish, and how to
contact you for additional
information.
Frozen samples can
be used to identify this
fungus using genetic
techniques. They will
accept frozen ulcerated
fish in good condition
that have the following
information: location (GPS
coordinates preferred)
and date of capture,
species, and standard
length, total length, or
fork length. Contact the
Fish Kill Hotline for more
information on providing
samples.

of more than 9.21 million.
Florida's jobless rate was
up 4.3 percentage points
from one year ago.
The state's current
unemployment rate, worst
since Jan. 1976 when the
rate was also 9.7 percent,
is 1.2 percentage points
higher than the national
unemployment rate of 8.5
percent.
Florida has lost more
than 424,000 nonagricultural
jobs over the past year,
continuing the trend of
over-the-year declines
that began in August 2007
primarily due to declines in
construction jobs, but has
now spread to almost all
other major industries.
"More than $1.5 billion in
federal stimulus funds are
flowingintoourstate toassist
unemployed Floridians,"
said Agency Interim
Director Cynthia Lorenzo.
"These funds are providing


enhanced unemployment
compensation benefits and
expanding job placement
and job training programs
to help bolster the economic
recovery of Florida's
families."
Florida's workforce
system is benefiting from
$165 million in federal
economic stimulus funds
that state and local
workforce boards are using
to provide training for
unemployed Floridians and
help businesses improve
workers' skills. Those funds
include $43 million for youth
services, including summer
jobs for several thousand
young people statewide
ages 14 to 24.
Work experiences
being made available to
unemployed young people
through stimulus monies
include opportunities
to learn about "green"
educational and career


pathways, such as
retrofitting of public
buildings, construction of
energy-efficient affordable
public housing, solar panel
installation, reclaiming of
public park areas and the
recycling of computers.
The state also has
available nearly $1.4
billion in stimulus funds
for increased benefits
for unemployment
compensation recipients.
Payments of an additional
$25 weekly in Federal
Additional Compensation
were initiated on March 19,
2009, and to date, $55 million
has been paid to Florida's
recipients.

PARK from page A1


April 8 meeting. "I
understood from the lady
that was handing us the
pictures that the stuff
had been ordered," she
said. "She showed us the
pictures and we made
recommendations. I like
the idea of a fountain being
in the park."
Dave Cole was also
present at the meeting of
the committee, which also
includes Ronnie Martina.
Giametta said she
had been talking with the
fountain's construction
company, Aquarius, of
Naples, and ordered it later
that week after getting the
committee's go-ahead.
"We built it over the
weekend (of April 18)
because the contractor
delivered the fountain
and wanted to go ahead
and build it and go back
to Naples," said Webb.
"Only one city worker was
involved and he will trade
out for time this week.
There was no overtime
paid."
Concerns about the
depth of the fountain,
and the potential liability
issues involved, were
first expressed by Carrie
Kienzle after she viewed
a picture of the fountain
at the April 16 Community
Pride meeting. Webb said
the depth of the water has
been lowered to 18 inches.
After several citizens
appealed to Mayor
Van Johnson, he called


for meetings between
residents and city officials
both Monday and Tuesday
morning. Taking part were
Johnson, Webb, Giametta,
Commissioner Frank
Cook, Building Inspector
Gene Osburn, Jerry Hall,
Beverly Hewitt, Cathy
Willis, Phyllis Blan, Joe
Taylor, Susan Clementson,
Lynn Spohrer, Kienzle
and architect Willoughby
Marshall
Webb said the residents
supported the fountain
idea, especially after
learning that it would not
have a slippery finish.
They did, however, secure
some alterations, including
taking out the blue tile on
the top edge and painting it
a more neutral color.
Webb said last
weekend's inspection of
the construction work
revealed that some of the
work in the park had been
done incorrectly, including
turning the new L-shaped
benches the wrong way.
She said residents
mainly raised questions
about materials used in
other design elements,
including the lights, picnic
tables, garbage cans and
benches. Webb also noted
the recreational elements
had been in the original
application for the grant,
and that the state had
sought to have shuffleboard
and tether balls courts
on the site, which the city
nixed.


Architect Willoughby
Marshall, brought in by
the mayor to weigh in on
the plan, has said he thinks
the design is not in keeping
with what the city ought to
pursue. He encouraged the
cityto lookinto usinggranite
pavers and brick trim, so
that the park captures the
spirit of the city in the 19th
century, a move similar to
how Boston has handled its
transformed waterfronts.
"Everything we build
in Apalachicola adds
to or detracts from the
integrity of the National
Register Historic District
found in Apalachicola, a
district which has guided
its positive development
during the last 20 years,"
he said. "On observation
of the construction, I
do not believe the park
as presently envisioned
is compatible with the
historic district nor will it
be a contributing factor to
the district."
After meeting with the
citizens, the city has agreed
to keep the design in place,
but not to root the elements
in concrete pads.
Giametta said the city
will put down the picnic
tables and benches, and
hide the garbage cans, and
see if the look meets with
citizens' approval.
"Once we put it in place,
if we don't like it, we'll take
out the benches and put the
ones back that are there,"
she said.

"However, his will also

Spartan that only a father

sons, Willie, 12, Harry 10,
Fred, 8, and Daniel 4. The
couple also had a 6-year-
old daughter, Sadie, and
there was at least one more
daughter, Edna, born to the
family after 1900.
At the time of the census,
Jenkins' profession is listed
as a hotel keeper. Working
with William Filler, a former
slave, Jenkins managed the
Filler Hotel, then located
at the site of the current
Superior Bank, a block off
US 98 in Apalachicola.

"FIRST-CLASS CUISINE,
ROOMS AND SERVICE"

Local Apalachicola
historian Mark Curenton
has conducted extensive
research on the Diller Hotel
and provided much of the
information about the hotel
given here.
In 1889 Jenkins and
Diller purchased three
lots belonging to the estate
of Nathaniel Hancock, of
Savannah, GA, where the
Diller stood.
It is believed Filler
and Jenkins were already
operating the Filler Hotel on
the same land they rented
at the time of the sale. Filler


j


is listed as an Apalachicola
hotel proprietor in the 1889
issue of Elliot's Florida
Encyclopedia.
During the Civil War, a
private residence belonging
to Anson Hancock stood
on the site and there may
already have been a tavern
there at that time. In any
case, the location had been
the site of a lodging house
prior to the Diller Hotel.
William Filler was 78
years old when he acquired
his share of the land and
died two years later, March
31, 1891. Shortly afterward,
his wife, Mary, sold the
Diller to Jenkins but lived
across the street until the
time of her death, and likely
played a role in managing
the business.
The Diller, which catered
to a white clientele, was
the premiere lodging place
in the city. On the death
of Diller's wife, Mary, the
Apalachicola Times wrote
"Her husband, William
A. Diller, died in 1891,
leaving the hotel business
in her charge, which she
conducted with propriety
and the good will of many
white guests."
A flyer for the Filler
published prior to 1910
names S. Jenkins as
proprietor and promises
first-class cuisine, rooms
and service.
Jenkins owned the Diller,
which remained in operation
through the Second World
War, until his death in 1942.
A kitchen fire in 1939
partially burned the hotel
down and Belle, who ran
the hotel kitchen, died from
smoke inhalation.

BUILT FIRST GASOLINE
BOAT ON THE BAY

Jerkin's two daughters,
Edna and Sadie, grew
up to be capable and
accomplished women and
were named executrixes of
their parents' wills.
In addition to the hotel,
Jenkins built and owned
the first gasoline-powered
boat to operate on the
Apalachicola Bay.
He is said to have built


the 45-foot craft on a lot in
back of the hotel. He named
it for his oldest daughter,
Sadie.
The Sadie J was an
excursion boat, that carried
sportsmen and tourists
up the river and out to the
barrier islands. She was
often used for hunting and
fishing expeditions, and
both Jenkins and his son,
William, were licensed to
operate it.
"My family used to own
little St. George Island,"
recalled Joe Barber, 86,
a longtime Apalachicola
resident who recently
moved to Carrabelle. "My
granddaddy, (lighthouse
keeper E.G. Porter), built
two little cottages on Pilot's
Cove to rent. The Sadie J
used to run daily trips and
also took renters to those
cottages."
During the early 1930s,
she was leased for $20 per
month and a dollar a trip for
fuel by colorful entrepreneur
William Popham, who
carried passengers out
to the oyster leases he
marketed beginning in
1926. The contract for this
agreement still exists in the
Florida Archives.
While not all African-
Americans fared so well in
the early days of the county,
the lives of the Jenkins and
Diller families suggest there
were greater opportunities
here than in other Southern
communities.
Apalachicola's Willie
Speed, a student of the
county's African-American
community, said Jenkins
is buried in Apalachicola's
Chestnut Cemetery, while
others say it is in Magnolia,
but the grave can not be
easily located.
Speed said Jenkins'
descendents have moved
away from the county to
Tallahassee and beyond,
but several months ago
two young women came to
the Apalachicola Library
looking for information
on Jenkins who was their
great-grandfather. Both
women were physicians,
so it seems that Spartan
Jenkins' legacy of wisdom
and prosperity lives on.

Willing to swap


op-ed space for


giant, juicy tomato

I've been channeling Mary Carol Creekmore and Xuri-
pha Miller this week. Years ago they both wrote folksy col-
umns for The Times. Mary Carol kept us updated on the
social and family goings-ons in Apalachicola, andXuripha
caught us up on the Eastpoint scene. I
remember Xuripha writing about gath-
ering and eating the early spring green,
poke salad.
Mary Carol often included items about
who brought her the first tomatoes of the
season, half a pound cake, a pot of chick-
en and dumplings, or peach jam. Some of
us started to suspect that folks presented
RED WHITE her with offerings just to get their names
AND ROUX in the paper. I am not even going there.
Denise Roux Although, now that I think about it, I
would be glad to give anybody a plug who
brought me a big, red, homegrown, juicy
beefsteak tomato. 'Mater and mayonnaise sandwiches
anyone?
I have been absolutely shameless about seeking infor-
mation for places to pick dewberries (the ones on vines)
and blackberries (the ones on bushes). My students, af-
ter much urging, provided me with about eight or nine
locations. I even got some hints about a place up 65 for
blueberries.
Today, on the Apalachicola side of the bridge I recon-
noitered two spots. I saw some bright red berries at one
and white blossoms at the other. Neither place was very
impressive.
Sadly, I also found evidence of many plants on road
shoulders that had been mowed. One year, on the way to
Port S. Joe I saw thousands of white blossoms indicating
a bumper crop to come. I actually emailed Tommie Spei-
ghts, the public information guy at the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation. I requested that the agency hold
off on mowing until the harvest. He was cordial and prom-
ised to look into it. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful. The
mowing continued. No pie, no cobbler, and no dooby for
me that year.
I still have some sites to check out up Highway 65 and
Highway 67. I suspect the deeper into the woods I go, the
better luck I will have. I have decided that enduring the
possibility of a red bug infestation will be worth it. If you
see me scratching, you'll know I've been to the forest.
Several of my students said that the end of Little St.
George Island closest to St. Vincent Island usually has
millions of berries. Take note berry-pickers with boats.
I am starting to wonder why this simple little food-
gathering project has become so important. I really did
have other ideas for the column. I could have written
about all the folks who talk to me in the grocery store or
email from far away. They share anecdotes and want to
talk about recollections of the times and people gone by.
We have a collective memory of the old days and nu-
merous observations about what is happening now in our
shared communities.
Despite my aggravation and downright fury about sev-
eral local issues, I felt the need to focus on the positive
this time. I have been known to provoke angry responses
when my intention was only to initiate a dialogue.
I could have written about Nikolai, the gent from the
Department of Education who claims to have turned
around schools in the Bronx and sincerely believes he can
do the same thing here. I optimistically suggest he spend
some time listening to students, parents, and teachers.
I am steaming about any proposal to move the Apala-
chicola Municipal Library to the former Apalachicola
High School site. I worked there over a dozen years. I be-
lieve it is a toxic building with numerous infrastructure
problems.
The library's precious bequest from Margaret Key
could be much better spent than by trying to prop up a
building with so much going against it. I could also have
done an entire column on the city, county, state, national,
and world issues that have me outraged.
I would rather concentrate on where to pick blackber-
ries. And by the way, if you want to drop off a tomato from
your garden, I'll see to it that you get your name in the
paper.

UF study: Florida land values tumble in 2008


By Stu Hutson
University of Florida

Keeping in step with the U.S.
economy, Florida land values took a
major tumble in 2008, with some ar-
eas losing more than half of their 2007
worth.
According to the annual Florida
Land Value Survey, conducted by the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences, rural
land and land outside of metropolitan
areas -- eagerly sought by developers
in recent years is now commonly be-
ing offered for sale at a fraction of its
cost.
"In some cases, it's almost like a
fire sale," said Rodney Clouser, the
UF professor of food and resource
economics who led the survey. Some
respondents reported large blocks of
land being offered at 20 to 30 percent
of their purchase price.
A population boom between 2002
and 2006 contributed to a dramatic
rise in land prices throughout Flori-
da. But now, the state's annual popu-


lation increase is expected to be only
10 percent of the boom years' growth,
according to UF population projec-
tions.
The survey, which does not cover
urban land values, showed that land
outside of cities primed for develop-
ment, dubbed transition land, de-
creased by as much as 55 percent in
the northern half of the state.
Transition land within five miles of
urban centers in the southern half of
the state lost nearly 40 percent of its
value.
However, in the one exception to
the otherwise gloomy economic pic-
ture, transition land more than five
miles away from urban centers in the
southern half of the state increased
by 5 percent. Most likely, this is be-
cause its low price and relative loca-
tion to large cities was seen as the
best deal by those still looking to buy
real estate, Clouser said.
Nevertheless, the 5 percent in-
crease is significantly smaller than
the nearly 17 percent increase for the
same area last year.


Lagging development hasn't just
affected areas destined for shopping
malls and homes. It has also contrib-
uted to drops as large as 26 percent
in farmland values.
Although such land is typically
evaluated primarily by the profitabil-
ity of the crop produced, urban ex-
pansion was so rapid in recent boom
years that many began to evaluate
the land based on what it would bring
if used for housing or other develop-
ment purposes, Clouser said.
Land prices are expected to con-
tinue their drop through 2009 al-
though not as dramatically as in 2008.
Survey responses from individuals
involved in the Florida real estate
market predict an overall drop be-
tween 5 and 17 percent.
Even after the national economic
picture brightens, Clouser said, a
surplus of homes and other existing
development would need to be sold
before demand would once again
drive land prices up.

Letters to the EDITOR


Were campaign promises just
lip service?

To the Editor:
Now that the dust has settled,
tempers have cooled, and rationality
(hopefully) has returned, I am asking
the Franklin County Commissioners to
PLEASE revisit the Economic Devel-
opment Council proposal and consider
it on its pro-active, visionary merits.
After watching the broadcast of the
April 7 meeting, a cynical observer
might suspect that certain Franklin
County individuals have never re-
ally wanted economic development
and employment opportunities in this
county beyond the seafood industry,
government, and real estate/tourist
service industries. The possibility of
bringing clean industry to this county,
with good wages and benefits, would
be too much competition and perhaps
draw away from the available pool of
workers.
I've watched various commission-
ers over the past 16 years bemoan the
circumstances that send our young
people out of the county to find employ-
ment opportunities. I've heard those
same commissioners talk about how
much we need "jobs, jobs, jobs!" Every
one of you has run your election and re-
election campaigns with the promise
that you would bring jobs to the county.
Was that all just lip service?
In order to "bring jobs to our coun-
ty" we have to reach out and go get
those opportunities. They're not going
to fall in our laps. We have to promote
our county as a place that's "open for
business." We need to put as much
effort into seeking and bringing clean
private industry and businesses to
Franklin County as we do in seeking
and obtaining government handouts,
stimulus, earmarks, pork, grants, sub-
sidies, and bailouts.
In proposing the creation of an Eco-
nomic Development Council, the coun-
ty commission board finally appeared
to be formulating a vision for the
county's long-range and sustainable
employment prospects. But something


happened to the reasoning of three of
you on April 7.
Nothing was offered in the way of
credible rationale for the "no" votes
that occurred. And we could see on the
faces of Commissioners Putnal, Par-
rish and Lockley, who waffled and wa-
vered and ultimately voted "no," that
they knew they had been disingenu-
ous, to say the least.
Let's return to reason. Again, please
revisit the Economic Development
Council proposal and look to its merits.
No more lip service -- TAKE ACTION!
Sincerely,
Pam Vest

School staff makes a
difference in students' lives

To the editor
Is it just me or has our beloved
Franklin County taken on the tone
of, "Them against us" or "Consistent
Negative Speaking of Others?"
When I first came to Apalachicola
many years ago, I fell in love with this
small seaport jewel and its people and
I still love it and its people today. I have
worked in several different jobs in the
county and have learned from them as
well as enjoyed them all, but my heart
is with the Franklin County School Sys-
tem where I started substituting in the
'70s at Apalachicola High School. I have
had the privilege to work in the system
well over 20 years, have seen many stu-
dents graduate, teachers retire, school
board members elected, principals and
superintendents come and go.
Not once have I placed things that
are not true, things that I don't have
the proper understanding about,
or hurtful and damaging articles in the
papers. Have I seen flaws in the differ-
ent places I've worked including the
school system? Why, of course, wher-
ever there are people there will always
be flaws. I have come to realize that
if I do more than is required of me on
my job, and all else that I know to do to
help others, things and situations will
usually get better.
Allow me to invite all that believe


our elected officials, administrators,
teachers and staff at the consolidated
school, learning center and throughout
the county don't have our precious chil-
dren at heart and attempting to make
positive impacts in their lives, please
come and volunteer some of your time
and help us.
Many of us come to work before
the sun comes up and it's dusk when
we return home. We've come to work
on Saturdays and some parents have
the liberty of calling us during the eve-
nings, not to mention weekends and
e-mailing too. We don't get paid over-
time and I am sure you know about
the condition of our budget, but it's the
concern and love of the children that
motivates us.
Yes, there are some issues on our
campus that need to be resolved, as
there are on millions of campuses
nationwide. We have dedicated per-
sonnel that are committed to the aca-
demic success, as well as the mental
and physical wellbeing of each student
in our charge and we work diligently
toward solutions. If by chance at the
end of a week we breathe a sigh of
relief thinking we have made a dif-
ference in the lives of some of the
students, periodically we face a wave
of criticism from the outside and some-
times even from within.
Can you answer a phone, duplicate
papers, file papers, tie shoes, encour-
age a student that is feeling like no
one cares, lend a listening ear, attempt
to help a child understand that to mis-
treat and hurt others physically or with
words is wrong? Can you pass a back-
ground check and have as little as one
hour or two a day, a week or a month?
Yeah, then you are just who we
need to help make our system what
you think it should be. Already in the
system? I encourage you to keep up
the good work, continue to be an asset
to the children, your co-workers and all
around you. I also encourage you to
speak positive. I ask for prayer for all
of our children, everyone that works in
the school system, their parents, how
about all of us praying for each other?

insurance could ALDERMAN ness?


place you just one
unexpected event
away from financial disas-
ter.
Here are insurance poli-
cies no household should be
without:
Medical: This is the most
critical and unfortunately,
the most expensive cover-
age you need. When com-
paring plans, consider:
Are your doctors in
their provider networks? If
not, can you afford the out-
of-network charges or are
you willing to find new doc-


If your em-
ployer doesn't offer
medical insurance, can you
obtain coverage through
your spouse's employer?
Homeowner/renter:
Faulty plumbing, fires, theft
and home-accident lawsuits
are only a few catastrophes
that could leave you without
possessions or a place to
live. A few tips:
"Actual cash value" cov-
erage repairs or replaces be-
longings, minus deductible
and depreciation, whereas
"replacement cost" cover-


age will replace the items
in today's dollars. Deprecia-
tion can significantly lower
values, so replacement cov-
erage is often worth the ex-
tra cost.
Jewelry, art and com-
puters usually require addi-
tional coverage.
Consider additional li-
ability insurance, especially
if you have significant prop-
erty, investments or savings.
Review your coverage
periodically to account for in-
flation, home improvements,
new possessions, change in
marital/family status, etc.
Car insurance: You prob-
ably can't even get a driver's
license without demonstrat-
ing proof of insurance. Con-
sider these coverage op-
tions:
"Liability" pays if you
cause an accident that in-
jures others or damages
their car or other property.
"Uninsured motorist"
pays for damage caused to
you or your car by an unin-
sured motorist.


"Collision" pays for
damage to your car result-
ing from a collision and
"comprehensive" pays for
damage to your car caused
by things like theft, vandal-
ism and fire. However, they
only pay up to the actual
cash value (ACV) minus de-
ductibles. Because the ACV
for older cars is low, repairs
often cost more than the car
is worth; therefore many
older-car owners drop these
coverages and increase li-
ability instead.
Common ways to lower
premiums include: Raising
deductibles; discounts for
good drivers, exceeding age
55 or installing security sys-
tems; comparison shopping;
and buying homeowner and
car insurance from the same
carrier.

Plans discussed for Apalachicola High Schoo


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

At a meeting of the
Apalachicola Community Pride
Committee held Thursday, a
proposed design to renovate the
Apalachicola High School was
discussed.
Betty Taylor Webb, city
administrator, displayed a
tentative floor plan and a sketch
of the proposed changes to the
school's facade prepared by
design consultant George Coon,
of Lucas Architects.
The plans showed about one
fifth of the school's floor space


dedicatedto the municipal library
and archives. Also penciled in
were a caf6 and ceramics shop.
The audience made a number
of suggestions for what could be
housed in the old school.
The school is now being
used by Project Impact, an
after-school activity program
administered by the city.
The food pantry has said they
want to move their operation to
the facility.
Karla Ambos, chairman of the
Community Garden committee,
suggested classes could be
held there teaching work skills,
trades and history. She said the
city could seek a USDA grant


to locate a community garden
kitchen in the school and teach
nutrition classes.
The building might also
house a local sports museum,
a pet project of Mayor Van
Johnson.
Dieter Ambos proposed that
an information and greeting
center displaying local art work
could be located at the entry to
the building.
It was suggested that the
school could house a volunteer
resource office and provide office
space for government groups
or nonprofits that periodically
visit the city, including the
youth probation officer, Big


Bend Hospice and the Literacy
Council.
It was even proposed that
City Hall might be moved to the
14th Street location.
There were some questions
raised about the building.
Library board member Susan
Clementson questioned the plan
to move the municipal library to
the school.
"Everything we've looked at
is more centrally located," she
said.
In a later interview, City
Commissioner Frank Cook said
there was no plan to move the
library at this time.
"Why are we taking on this


1970s building? Do we know
what the utilities were over the
last five years?" asked Carrie
Kienzle.
Dieter Ambos said he believed
the building had multiple air
conditioning units and could
be cooled in sections as it was
used.
"There is one very old, very
inefficient unit, but that means
we have a great opportunity to
make some green changes,"
said Faye Johnson, director of
Project Impact.
"I realize we're going to have
some changes over there, but I
think it's something we can deal
with," said the mayor.


Affordable housing still on advocates' radar


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

They've done away with the
county's affordable housing
coalition, but don't think for a
minute they've abandoned the
cause.
Significant developments
that could help families into
affordable housing in the
months ahead are moving to
the front burner.
On March 26, the Franklin
County Affordable Housing
Coalition met and dissolved
itself, leaving behind the
corporation that it had
spawned, the Franklin County
Community Development
Corporation, to carry on its
work.
"The coalition has
evaporated, on the advice
of legal counsel, and we've
changed the bylaws to
make the corporation self-
perpetuating," said Rev.
John Sink, secretary of the
corporation.
The board now includes
nine members, each elected
by the corporation, and three
members who serve at the
pleasure of their respective
commissions. These include
County Commission Chairman
Smokey Parrish, Apalachicola
Commissioner Frank Cook
and Carrabelle Commissioner
James Brown.
Dan Rosier, of Carrabelle,


chairs the corporation,
with Steve Watkins, as vice
chairman, and Cliff Butler as
treasurer.
Also on the board of the
community development
corporation are Lori Switzer
and Bob Connors, both from
Franklin's Promise, School
Board Member Teresa Martin,
Joe Pouncey, from GreenSteel,
and Tara Ward, a teacher at
the ABC School.
Randy Webster serves the
board as technical advisor,
while Rocky Cabagnot, from
Legal Services of North
Florida, advises the board on
legal matters.
Sink said the coalition had
become non-functional over
the last several years, ever
since it started with great
fanfare about four years ago,
when housing prices were at
their peak.
"We met a couple of times
and each time the numbers
seemed to go down as we met,"
said Sink. "We said 'Let's form
a more formal organization, a
501c3, and get it incorporated
so we can really conduct
legitimate business.'"
That decision gave rise to
the corporation, which later
added a land trust component,
enabling it to assemble
parcels of land and hold them
in trust.
"It was so we could receive
parcels of land as gifts and


"We want to
properly educate
the public on what
a land trust is and
how it operates."

John Sink
secretary of the Community
Development Corporation

therefore hold the cost of
housing down," said Sink.
"The corporation owns the
land and leases it to the
homeowner. This is sort of a
hybrid, where you own the
house but you don't own the
land."
The corporation has
two parcels to work with in
Carrabelle. The corporation
secured title in Feb. 2008,
thanks to thecity commission's
vote in 2007.
"What we've done over
there is to partner with Habitat
for Humanity. They will be the
builder," said Sink. "We've
been screening out some
candidates and about the time
we get them up to where we're
ready, they say 'We want that
land too.
"We want to properly
educate the public on what
a land trust is and how it
operates," he said. "The
typical mindset is when you


buy a house, you own the land
too."
Sink said the corporation
has put in for some grant
monies to assist potential
homeowners, and is working
with the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's rural
development arm, the federal
home loan bank and the SHIP
program.
They are also discussing
ways of targeting priorities
to serve a specific population,
such as teachers.
"You can target the
priorities to who can own the
property," he said. "The city
could do the same thing, for
public employees."

NEW FEDERAL MONEY TO
HELP FUND CONSTRUCTION

Sink said an infusion of
about $350,000 in federal
money, earmarked for
new home construction
by income-eligible, credit-
worthy applicants, will soon
become a tool in the quiver
of the county's five-member
housing board. Sink serves
as chairman, and Robert
Davis as vice chair, along
with Tommy Luster, Cliff

percent for 30 years, and
totaling no more than
$100,000, may be provided


to households with incomes
below 120 percent of the area
median income.
Monthly payments can be
no greater than 30 percent
of an applicant's income.
The applicant must either
own the land, or have an
agreement with the county's
land trust for property ready
for construction.
Sink said the selection
criteria for the program,
which is administered by
the county's SHIP office
in Apalachicola, has been
drafted and remains to be
approved by the county
commission.
As it stands now, the
housing board, after
separating the available
funds into allocations for
different levels of low-
income applicants, will give
first preference to those who
are not current homeowners,
although they may be owners
of a mobile home.
Next priority for the
construction loans would
go to those who occupy a
principal residence that is
not suitable for rehabilitation
as determined by a SHIP
housing inspector.
Lastly, priority would
be given to those who are
elderly, disabled or can
demonstrate "a documented
economic, health or public
safety need."

Never judge a pirate by his peg leg


Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

Rosilyn Blanck of Rose-
mont Avenue in Highland
Park is happy to have her
parrot Ruthye home safe
and sound and she credits
a number of people with
Ruthye's return.
Three weeks ago,
Ruthye, a 3-year old Solo-
mon Islands Eclectus,
escaped from a small pet
crate that Blanck's hus-
band Charlie was using
to transport the bird to an
outdoor aviary. This sur-
prised the Blancks, who
did not believe Ruthye
could fly. Rosilyn said the
bird remained in her yard
for five days but the couple
was unable to lure her
back inside.
"She would call to us,
but didn't seem to know
how to come down. I don't
think she was ever fledged.
These birds are totally ar-
boreal in the wild. They
never come to the ground,"
said Rosilyn.
Ruthye made her way
to a fishing boat anchored


up river, the home of Mat-
thew "Pirate" Quinn and
his wife Nicky.
Quinn is a friendly chap,
seen frequently around
town with his wife in col-
orful pirate garb. Their
floating home is popularly
referred to as the pirate
ship.
The Quinns made a
sheltered area where
Ruthye could feed and, for
two weeks, she kept them
company. Nicky Quinn was
concerned that the bright
red parrot was constantly
dodging eagles and os-
preys. She was sure the
bird was someone's pet
and eventually the Quinns
contacted the Oyster Radio
who announced the bird's
location and a contact
number for the Quinns.
A neighbor of the
Blancks heard the an-
nouncement and contact-
ed the bird's owners.
"I think it's kind of neat
that, when all this stuff is
going on in Africa with pi-
rates demanding ransom,
our pirates returned my
bird. I paid him a little re-
ward but I didn't have to,"


said Rosilyn.
Rosilyn said when she
called Quinn his first ques-
tion to her was, "Do you
have a boat?"
She asked why and he
explained where he lived.
This is when another Sa-
maritan stepped in to help
the Blancks.
OfficerCarmenBrownell
of Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
ferried Charlie Blanck out
to the pirate ship.
"He was so nice," said
Rosilyn. "I really want to
thank him."
When Charlie arrived
on the Quinns boat, Ruthye
was very pleased to see
him. She flew to him and
entered the carrier volun-
tarily.
Rosilyn said that, after
Ruthye arrived home, she
refused to leave her cage
for two days.
She said the bird was
sleek and happy after her
adventure and wants to
thank everyone from the
Quinns to Oyster Radio,
to her neighbors and the
FWC officer for bringing
Ruthye home.

Seahawks boys basketball


placed on probation


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
One too many games last season
has led to the Seahawks boys basket-
ball team being placed on restrictive
probation by the Florida High School
Athletic Association for next season.
In a March 17 letter from Roger
Dearing, the FHSAA's executive direc-
tor, the Seahawks also were limited to
playing a maximum of 23 games next
season and assessed a fine of $100.
In addition, restrictive probation
means the school is served notice it
is in "a period of warning for one or
more calendar years and additional
violations during this period may
result in an extension of the proba-
tionary period, or in the school being
placed on suspension probation, or in
the school being expelled from mem-
bership (in FHSAA)."
According to Cristina Alvarez, the
FHSAA's director of media relations,
the state learned the Seahawks had
played 26 games, one more than the
maximum allowed, when school offi-
cials submitted their team data form
for the state championship series
program.
After making the final four, the Se-
ahawks lost in the semifinals in Lake-


land to eventual champion Jackson-
ville Arlington Country Day, who won
the Class 2A for the fifth consecutive
year.
Eight of the Seahawks' 26 games
last season were played in tourna-
ments during the regular season, and
each counted toward the allowable to-
tal. Coach Fred Drake said the team
played six games in two tournaments
but that the state might be consider-
ing the two games in Columbus, Ga.,
as tournament games.
Athletic Director Mike Todd said
the additional game came about be-
cause the Seahawks played three
games at the Bay Barnstorm Classic
over the Christmas break. The Se-
ahawks lost a nailbiter to Cairo, Ga.,
in their opener and then had to play
two other games out of the losers'
bracket.
Todd said there were no plans to
appeal the FHSAA's decision.
Drake said the 23-game limit will
likely not affect scheduling because
teams throughout the state are look-
ing at a shorter season as it is.
"The state already said they're
going to cut back on the games, and
we expect to play 20," he said. "That's
what everybody in the state is pretty
much preparing for."


Seahawks eye post-season


By Christy Thompson
Special to the Times
The Lady Seahawks regu-
lar season has ended with
only district play looming on
the horizon.
The end of the Seahawk
schedule was designed with
just that in mind: "the end."
We wrapped up the season
with Munroe, Wewahitchka
and Blountstown, three chal-
lenging games to ready the
girls for North Florida Chris-
tian in the district finals.
There was plenty of question-
able officiating surrounding
the first two games. I guess
it was just meant to make
us work harder and take our
losses in a positive way.
It just feels like this was
the way it had to be for the
Lady Seahawks to get that
much better. It's hard to con-
vey the big picture and posi-
tive aspects of a game to the
girls when the score reflects a
loss. In review of past losses,
any one of our committed er-
rors could be removed and
change the outcome. Our er-
rors always seem to come at
the most detrimental times.
Combating this just goes

along with experience, and
these girls are young, very
young. It would be my guess
that this 2009 softball team
will not only take districts, but
be the youngest to do so. We
are rolling with only one se-
nior starter, Khrystal Davis.
This last week of softball
will prove to be instrumen-
tal toward gaining success
against North Florida Chris-
tian on Thursday, April 23. The
Seahawks played good ball
against Munroe, before losing
2-1, and better against Wewa,


in a 5-3 loss. but absolutely sol-
id as a rock during the Blount-
stown game. We took this one
into extra innings after having
a six-run rally and playing su-
perb defense throughout the
game. It was our best game
of the season thus far. We just
couldn't hold onto the lead late
in the eighth inning to defeat
the Tigers and lost 7-6.
One thing is for certain,
though: If the Lady Seahawks
play ball this tough against
North Florida, then be pre-
pared to hand that trophy
over to the district champs!
I feel very good about our
team coming into the district
playoffs. We are ready, and
the morale among the girls is
very positive. There is noth-
ing that will stop this team
from handling business come
Thursday on Seahawk field.
The team is healthy and
back to normal positions de-
spite previous injuries. I look
forward to a successful sea-
son with these girls, and that
would include winning the
district championship.

Christy Thompson is the
coach of the Lady Seahawks
varsity softball team.

office, for an additional
fee of $27. Of that amount,
$25 goes to the Florida
Lighthouse Association to
be distributed to the state's
lighthouses on a grant basis
to fund the preservation of
these historic structures,
and $2 goes to the state for
administrative costs. Of
the 59 historic lighthouses
constructed in the state, 30
are still standing.
Historic lighthouses,
which once protected
coastal shipping and guided
mariners into Florida's
ports and rivers safely since
1824, have become major
tourist attractions. These
"beacons on a hill" attract
a million visitors annually
who spend nearly $5
million on admissions and
merchandise, and pump
millions more into local
communities.
In the past 20 years, the
statehasawarded$4.8million
in grants to lighthouses.
This investment in historic
lighthouse preservation
and restoration created jobs
that employed contractors,
architects and engineers,
resulting in an immediate


economic impact in
lighthouse communities.
Included in this number are
the county'stwo lighthouses,
Cape St. George and
Crooked River, both of which
have received grant funding
from the state.
Lighthouses are among
the oldest standing historic
buildings in America. "If we
don't value our rich history
and ancestors, we leave out
a big part of who we are,"
said Farnham. "FLA helps
with sharing these iconic
structures with others and
future generations to learn
from our maritime history.
Europe saves its castles;
here we want to save our
lights. Imagine if all were
restored and open!"
The Florida Lighthouse
Association promotes,
preserves and protects the
rich maritime heritage of
the remaining 30 historic
Florida lighthouses for
future generations. The
all-volunteer association
educates and raises
attention to get public
support to increase Florida
lighthouse preservation
measures.

Top left, sixth graders Kaden Crum, in back,
with his Mile High Swinging Bridge, and A.J.
Copley, with his New River Gorge Bridge,
stand behind their featured creations. Above,
Standing with their bridges are, from left,
eighth graders Hannah Oxendine, Roxana
Barahona and Chantel Rhine. At left, Seventh
grader Ashley Carroll peeks behind her
bridge, modeled after the old Apalachicola
Bridge. Top right, students test their weight.


Story and photos by David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
First the students study how
bridges are constructed, and then they
build them, and finally they discover
how much it takes for them to break
in two.
Very similar to the learning process
pursued by structural engineers, but
hopefully without the breakage when
multimillion projects are involved.
On April 3 at the outdoor pavilion
of the Franklin County Middle School,
students in the seventh and eighth
grades culminated one of the school's
most popular traditional science
assignments by seeing how much
weight their Popsicle stick bridges
would withstand.
The bridge project is actually a
three-stage learning assignment that
begins when the students are sixth
graders.
Deborah Faircloth, who teaches
middle school science, has the sixth
graders build replicas of bridges that
they either are familiar with personally,
such as one in Tate's Hell; have heard
about, such as the Apalachicola Bridge
that used to rotate on a turnstile;
or have read about, such as the one
spanning Sydney Harbor in Australia.
The students draw up blueprints
that depict the design, and they type
up a report on the history and purpose
of the bridge.
In the case of Kaden Crum, it's the
Mile High Swinging Bridge, a 228-foot
suspension bridge on Grandfather
Mountain in North Carolina.
In the case of A. J. Copley it's the
New River Gorge Bridge, a 3,030-foot
steel-arch structure in Fayetteville,
WV
Both designs were exquisitely done,
and were highlighted along with the
most striking entries in a display case
in the front of the media center. These
included works by Macey Hunt, Callie
Westbrook, Kaylee Edwards (of the 20th
Street viaduct bridge), and Madison
Newell (of a covered bridge).
Krystal Butler's span of Sydney
Harbor, Cole Wheeler's replica of
the parallel bridge spanning Lake


Pontchartrain, and others, from the
Golden Gate to Carrabelle's Tillie
Miller Bridge, all showed off the
students' talents.
Each of the students in all three
grades were given 100 Popsicle sticks
to work with, and asked to use only
wood glue to assemble them. They
could paint it if they wanted, and
decorate it in any way they wished, but
the specifications called for making it
no more than 30 centimeters long and
five centimeters wide, about enough
space for a Hot Wheel car to ride
through.
"There were no instructions on
how to do it other than the materials to
use," said Faircloth. "It was their own
custom design."
The sixth grade's structures were
all left intact on display in the media
center, but the seventh and eighth
graders, in Spencer Tolbert's class,
made structures that were destined to
be destroyed as they saw whether the
structures could withstand 100 pounds
of weights.
The seventh graders had
structured bridges of a generic shape,
while eighth graders were required to
incorporate an arch or a truss in their
designs.
A sturdy number stood up to the
weights, but not all the students
subjected their creations to the test.
"I don't want it to break," said
seventh grader Michael Stevens. "I
want to take it home and show my
mom."


Humble serves as

Florida Senate page
xz M


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Franklin County
sophomore Lakota Humble
could hardly contain his
enthusiasm for having
served as a page in
the Florida Senate
during spring break.
"Itwasanamazing
experience," said
Humble, 15, following
his induction last
week as a member
of the high school's
National Honor LAI
Society. "It was a big HU
week. There were a
lot of things to do."
A member of the
Seahawks boys basketball
team, Humble was able to
re-schedule after the post-
season tournament would
have forced him to cut back
his original week.
Humble was one of 19
pages, and the only from
the county, to take part in
the Senate page program
March 23 through 27,
under the direction of page
coordinator Minnie Bush.
On Monday, the students,
who came from as far away
as Miami and even Alabama,
were taken on a tour of the
Capitol, familiarizing them
with the places they would
be running documents
to and from on behalf of
senators and their various
committees.
"In our spare time, we
did homework and played
educational games, meaning
Monopoly," Humble quipped.
On Tuesday, the pages


heard a talk from Sen.
Gary Siplin (D-Orlando) on
education and state testing,
while on Wednesday, the
youth continued to run
pages while preparing for
their mock work session on
Thursday.
The hypothetical
bill that the pages
took up during their
work session was
whether to increase
a fee charged to
Florida college
students from 2.32
KOTA to 6.32 percent. The
MBLE mock session was
held in the Senate
chambers, where Humble
chose to be seated where
the Senate minority leader,
Democrat Sen. Al Lawson,
and Humble's sponsor, sits.
Four of Humble's seven
proposed amendments
were approved by the pages,
including reducing the
increase to 4.5 percent, and
boosting the grade point
average eligible for an award
to 3.2 percent. The measure
passed by a single vote.
Later that day, Lawson,
and fellow senators Mike
Haridopolos (R- Melbourne),
Dave Aronberg (D-
Greenacres), Eleanor Sobel
(D-Hallandale Beach), and
Frederica Wilson (D-Miami
Gardens), met with the pages.
As for the political side
of the experience, Humble
enjoyed the give-and-take
with other students. "I'm a
Democrat all the way," he
said. "We always argued
about politics in our spare
time."

Her career in nursing
began with graduation
from St. John's Hospital,
Long Island City, with a
registered nurse degree.
She worked as an assistant
in surgery to doctors at
New York Hospital and
Cornell Medical Center
and accepted a scholarship
to Peabody College in
Nashville, Tenn., to pursue
an advanced degree in
public health nursing.
After completing her
nursing studies, she moved
to Pensacola to join her

Editor's Note: The
following is a passage
written by a local cancer
survivor It is shared
with Times readers by
the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life
committee in hopes of
inspiring survivors
and friends to support
the upcoming May
15-16 Relay at the new
consolidated school.
I am a survivor! A
diagnosis of cancer is
a genuinely traumatic
experience. So many
people, when told they
have cancer, say to
themselves, "OK, it's
time to die now. I'll go
home, say goodbye, sit
down and wait for death
to come collect me."
Fiddlesticks! Why
would anyone waste time
waiting for death when
there's so much living
to do? Of course, we are
going to need many things
to help us be survivors
- doctors, treatments,
family, prayers but we
must recognize that life
does not become ugly
just because we have
an obnoxious disease.
Our lives are beautiful
BECAUSE we are alive.
Our love toward our family
deepens because we
realize we might have lost
our chances to say, "I love
you!" several times a day.


The leaves are greener,
the sky is bluer, birdsong
in the morning is a new
glory, and the smell of
chicken and biscuits being
prepared for dinner is a
marvel that God must
have planned just for us.
My life since the
diagnosis has become
a delightful adventure.
I have sung with fine
choruses, acted in great
plays, write a weekly
column, work part time
and am now directing a
melodrama. The tumors
are still there ... but, by
George, so am I!
For those of you who,
like me, are survivors,
and for those who
are struggling with
depression because
of the seemingly sure
knowledge that your
life will be shorter
than you expected, see
your doctors, take your
treatments, but also live
the wonderful adventure
of life, love your family
and friends, and keep
praying. Then, even if
your life is shortened,
it will have been more
beautiful than you can
imagine, and when the
time comes for you to
walk with God, you will
be ready, unafraid and
happy in the knowledge
that you haven't wasted
God's good life.

Visitors up at Camp Gordon Johnston Museum


For the first quarter of 2009, end-
ing March 31, there was an increase
in the number of visitors to the
Camp Gordon Johnston Museum
compared to first quarter of 2008.
According to the sign-in sheet, the
museum had 750 visitors compared
to 700 last year during the same time
period (realizing that when large
numbers come in together, some
visitors neglect to sign in.) This in-
crease is even more important con-
sidering the museum was closed for
the first two weeks of January for
moving.
The increase can be attributed
to better signage and a much larger
parking area, as well as cleaner and
larger facilities. The number of visi-
tors coming into the museum during
the next three quarters is critical to
planning for fiscal years 2010 and
2011.
The Camp Gordon Johnston Days
events held the second weekend in
March drew many new visitors to
both Carrabelle and the museum.
The parade was one highlight be-


During the war years, women
in Carrabelle volunteered to
sew insignias on the uniforms
of soldiers stationed at Camp
Gordon Johnston.

cause the museum was able to have
two of its own military vehicles in-
cluded in the lineup. Unfortunately,
its DUKW was being repaired and
unable to be displayed.
The museum soon will post pho-
tosfrom thatweekend on its Web site,
www.campgordonjohnston,com.
The dinner-dance was an out-


standing success. This year, the
decorations, arrangements and food
were a true community effort, and
thanks go to the Franklin County
Consolidated School's girls softball
team, who served the meals, and to
the Shriners, who cooked the meals.
Even with a down economy, the
John W. Stallman Memorial Golf
Tournament held at the Country
Club at Summer Brook in Tallahas-
see was a financial success and has
added more money to the building
fund. The museum also will take part
again in the Smithsonian Museum's
national "Museum Day" event be-
ing held on Sept. 26, 2009. Visit their
Web site at museumday@si.edu
and print out tickets for this event.
Please take time to bring the family
in to see the new displays and listen
to some great live music.
Look for the museum to show
one of its vehicles in this year's Car-
rabelle Riverfront Festival, with the
intent to have either the Jeep or
Leiferwagen on display Saturday,
April 25.


Carrick to lead North

Florida for FHP


Florida Highway Patrol
Director Col. John Czernis
promoted Maj. Grady Car-
rick to chief at a ceremony
April 8 at the patrol's head-
quarters in Tallahassee.
Carrick will be the
northern region com-
mander, overseeing the
Florida Highway Patrol's
four northern troops (A,
B, G and H), which covers
Florida from Pensacola to
Jacksonville. For the past
11 years, he has been the
commander of Troop G in
Jacksonville, which cov-
ers Nassau, Duval, Clay,
St. Johns, Flagler, Putnam,
Baker, Bradford and Union
counties.
The promotion is part
of a recent patrol reorgani-
zation, which emphasizes
accountability, responsibil-
ity and unity of command.
The patrol's new structure
maximizes resources and
gives troopers the ability to
perform their duties more
effectively and efficiently.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol 2009 Reorganization


is available online at www.
flhsmv.gov/fhp.
"We are reassigning staff
so that we have fewer ad-
ministrators at headquar-
ters and more troopers on
the road. We have been able
to accomplish this while
also recognizing a cost sav-
ings," said Czernis.
Carrick began his career
with the patrol in Miami
in 1982 after graduating
from FHP's 65th Recruit
Class. After promoting up
through the ranks to major,
he led operations in Miami
as commander of Troop-E
for five years. In 1997, he
transferred to Jacksonville
to head Troop G. He will re-
main in Jacksonville.
Carrick graduated from
Bishop Kinney High School
in Jacksonville and holds a
master's in public adminis-
tration from Florida Inter-
national University and a
master's in civil engineer-
ing from the University of
Florida. He is a graduate
of the 172nd session of the
FBI Academy.


Judge Ferris to retire


SJOE'S LAWN CARE
X No Jo oo/Big \
Caloe 370-6911


Circuit Judge Janet Fer-
ris announced this week
she will retire from the
bench June 30, 2009.
Ferris was elected to
the court in 1998 and has
served in the felony, civil
and family divisions for the
past 10 years. She also was
assigned to Franklin Coun-
ty for two and a half years.
"I have thoroughly en-
joyed serving the people of
this circuit. This has been
the most challenging posi-
tion I have held in 30 years
of public service, and it is
an extraordinary respon-
sibility," she said. "I truly
hope that everyone who
has appeared before me
feels that they have been
treated fairly and with re-
spect, and that they have
been heard.
"I will especially miss the
juvenile delinquency docket
- the dedicated prosecu-
tors, public defenders, agen-
cies and court personnel
have made a difficult assign-
ment very rewarding, and I
hope to be able to address
issues related to children in


the future," she said.
Before her election to
the bench, Ferris served as
an assistant state attorney,
chief of the attorney gener-
al's civil racketeering sec-
tion, and general counsel
to the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement and
the Department of Juvenile
Justice.
She was appointed sec-
retary of the Department
of Business Regulation in
1991 by Gov. Lawton Chil-
es and later served as the
chief inspector general for
the state of Florida.
As a circuit judge, Fer-
ris was appointed to nu-
merous committees of the
Florida Supreme Court,
including serving as chair
of the Alternative Dispute
Resolution Policy Com-
mittee, and as a member
of the Select Committee
on Justice Teaching, the
Publications Committee
of the Florida Court Edu-
cation Council, and the
Task Force on Long Range
Planning for the Florida
court system.


Speed bumps to be removed
At their April 7 meeting, County Commissioners voted
unanimously to set the speed limit for all paved roads
on St. George Island, except East and West Gulf Beach
Drive, to 25 mph. All dirt or milled asphalt roads on the
island now have a speed limit of 20 mph.
Also at that meeting, County Engineer Dan Rothwell
said speed bumps installed by the St. James Bay Devel-

State trooper speaks




at Saturday School


Earlier this month,
the Franklin County
High School's Saturday
School, working with the
theme "Preparation and
Perseverance" arranged
for a guest speaker to
come from Panama City
to share with the stu-
dents.
The guest was a staff
sergeant in the Army Re-
serve and a Florida state
trooper, Clara E. Condo-
Varner, who just finished
her third deployment
last month. She has been
to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait
and Iraq.
Condo-Varner was
born in Savannah, Ga.,


but grew up in Key West.
She also lived in Apala-
chicola and attended
Gulf Coast College.
"She was selected
to share with the stu-
dents because she is a
prime example of what
can be accomplished if
right choices are made,"
said Dolores Hayward-
Croom, the Saturday
School supervisor. "Al-
though Staff Sgt. Condo-
Varner is a product of a
broken home, teen preg-
nancy and being put in
the Florida foster care
system, she made up her
mind to turn all of that
into something positive


and pursued her dreams
through hard work,
preparation and perse-
verance.
She graduated from
Key West High School,
worked at the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office
and went into the U.S.
Army for eight years.
While in the Army, she
decided she wanted to
be a state trooper, ap-
plied, was accepted and
has been a trooper for 15
years, currently assigned
to Bay County.
"Her presentation
was both motivational
and inspiring," said Hay-
ward-Croom.

Carrabelle prepares for Riverfront Festival


The 19th annual Carrabelle
Riverfront Festival will be held
on Marine Street along the Car-
rabelle Riverwalk this Saturday
and Sunday, April 25 and 26. Es-
tablished traditions and exciting
new features are expected to
draw large crowds.
Admission is free both days,
with the excitement beginning at
10 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. Sat-
urday and 4 p.m. Sunday.
Unique to the festival is the
giant maritime sand sculpture.
Always a surprise, this artistic
endeavor has become the festi-
val's focal point. Returning by
popular demand, master sand


sculptor Mark Flynn brings his
award-winning artistic talent to
the downtown site. Using a huge
block of wet sand, he will create a
special sand sculpture based on a
riverfront theme.
New for 2009 is the Climb On
Us Rock Wall. This 25-foot high
realistic granite rock provides an
adventure for all climbers, featur-
ing routes of varying degrees of
difficulty so everyone can enjoy
the thrill of this experience.
Once again, the Kids' Zone
has been expanded to include the
magic of Coo Coo the Clown, at
3:30 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sun-
day, the exotics of the Big Bend


Bird Club, a pirate's treasure
hunt, and animal demonstrations
by the Florida Wild Mammal As-
sociation and the "touch tanks"
from the FSU Marine Lab.
Special for Saturday only are
return appearances of the Pet
Parade, beginning at 10:30 a.m.,
and the Fishy Fashion Show at
11:30 a.m., where maritime mod-
els show off outrageous nautical-
themed outfits made from found
and recycled materials.
Saturday's entertainment will
include popular singer Donovan
Chapman, at 5 p.m., and The Rick
Ott Band, at 1 p.m. It is rumored
that "Elvis" is coming on Sunday


at noon, Other attractions include
the opportunity, from 11 a.m. to
4 p.m., to enjoy a narrated pon-
toon boat ride on the Carrabelle
River provided by the Apalachic-
ola Maritime Museum.
Arts, crafts, food, heritage dis-
plays and environmental booths
complete this admission-free
event.
Also back by popular request,
kayak races are tentatively sched-
uled for starting times of noon on
Saturday and Sunday, weather
and tides permitting. Further
information on these events can
be obtained from Expeditions in
Tate's Hell at 697-2434.


This year's lineup of vendors
promises to bring us the beau-
tiful, colorful, fun, unusual and
awe-inspiring in arts and crafts.
Food booths will feature the ever-
popular local seafood, ethnic of-
ferings, and traditional fair foods.
Service organizations will round
out what we anticipate to be the
best Carrabelle Riverfront Festi-
val yet.
This event is sponsored in part
by the Franklin County Tourist
Development Council and the
Carrabelle Chamber of Com-
merce. For more information,
call 697-2585 or check out the Web
site www.carrabelle.org

set and other percussion instru-
ments. The group plays for high-
profile events in the North Florida
area, such as Florida State Univer-
sity's PRISM concert series.
