The quiet waving of flags mixed with the roar
of engines to stir patriotic emotions Tuesday
afternoon in Apalachicola.
Hundreds of motorcyclists escorted the

four-day stay alongside the Three Servicemen
Statue that graces Veterans Plaza.
For the first time ever outside Washington

urday morning on the Carrabelle
Riverfront added an ugly touch
to an otherwise beautiful week-
end festival.
Sporting all manner of flotsam
and jetsam, from smashed plastic
detergent bottles, to used crab traps,
a dozen models sported a variety
of outfits, each made from detritus
from the sea.
It's all the brainchild of
Carrabelle artist Joan Matey and
her longtime friend Jan Neshat,
who adapted the idea from a West
Coast fashion show of outfits made
completely out of trash.
Matey had met the creator,
Robin Worley, a few years back
while on a morale raising tour
of Katrina struck areas, where
trash was an abundant part of the
scenery. Matey had watched how
the trash fashion show was a big
hit, and decided to modify the idea
for a coastal locale.
"I'd do it with remnants of
the sea, shells, seaweed, sponges
- treasured stuff I've kept for decades from every
walk I've ever taken on the beach that's been lying
around the yard in buckets," she said. "Plus old fishing
gear, sailboat accessories, old beach stuff that piles up
in your shed, abandoned umbrellas, kites, rafts, etc."
She and longtime friend Jan Neshat, a Ringling
School of Art graduate, dove into the project a couple
years ago and created some incredible outfits, which
they have been modeling and refining for the last
couple years at Carrabelle's annual festival.
"We have a over a dozen costumes at the present
time, but want to keep making new ones as inspiration
strikes us," said Matey.
The two newest ones this year were "Red Tide
She Devil," modeled by Leslie Cox, and the "Garbage
Guard" modeled by Steve Allen.
"We have added a little educational input, just
some reminders of the responsibilities of coastal
residents to not fertilize (which contributes to red

These went along with
such regular favorites as
the "Maritime Marshal,"
modeled by attorney
Dan Cox; the "Bayside

realtor Jill Archer, and

Barney Crutchfield; and

"It's fun to see who
will model the outfits,"
said Matey. "We've even
had a local sheriff wear


the 'Maritime Marshal'
with barrel sponge hat
and starfish spurs. It's
a fun way to bring the
community together."
The fashion show,
which Matey plans to
export to other coastal
festival, helped kick off
the 19th annual festival,
which organizer Suzanne
Zimmerman, director of
the Carrabelle Chamber of
Commerce called "the best
one to date."
"The vendors were
very happy and so it was
a productive one for the
vendors," she said. "They
all asked to come next
year and when they do that


you're happy."
The show featured
more than 100 vendors
and attractions, and
opened with the Pet
Parade Saturday
morning. Seventeen
entries took part, mostly
dogs. No cats, but a lizard
and a snake.
"It went very well, we
were very pleased with
the turnout," said Lucille
Walden, who oversaw it.
Using money earned in
a bake sale, the pet parade
presented gift bags to
the participants. Awards
were given out for best
dressed, best homemade
outfit, most like its


owner and most unusual.
Unfortunately, a brisk wind
scattered the names of the
winners to the four corners
of the earth, and so they
were lost following the
festival.
Zimmerman said
while hard numbers
aren't available for overall
turnout on the two-day
festival, but "on Saturday
the traffic was backed up
well over the hill. We had
police out there all day
long."
Rough seas prompted
one change in schedule,
as Sunday's narrated
pontoon boat ride on the
Carrabelle River provided


by the Apalachicola
Maritime Museum had to
be cancelled.
"They couldn't get
here because of the water.
It was too rough," said
Zimmerman. "There
were a lot of disappointed
people."
Three hearty
enthusiasts competed
in kayak races over the
weekend, while scores
of eager children, and
some adults, tested their
skills on the "Climb On Us
Rock Wall," a 25-foot high
realistic granite rock in the
center of the action along
Marine Street.

County gets stimulus



dollars for sidewalks


By Benjamin Rettig
Your Capitol Bureau

Franklin County will
build three new sidewalks
with federal stimulus
money, but County Road
67 won't get repaved un-
less the Federal Emergen-
cy Management Agency
(FEMA) pays the bill.
Alan Pierce, director of
administrative services,
said the county will receive
$512,000 for two sidewalk
projects on St. George
Island and one sidewalk
project in Apalachicola.
"We just got notice on April
16," he said.
According to Pierce,
these are the locations of
the three sidewalk proj-
ects.
The Apalachicola
project extends from the
start of the Bluff Road bike
path, at the edge of Mag-
nolia Cemetery, back to
Avenue M in Apalachicola.
"This will allow children to
get to the ballfield without
riding on busily traveled
Bluff Road," said Pierce.
The first St.
George Island project runs
along Franklin Boulevard
from the fishing pier to
the Gulf Beach Drive bike
path.
The second St.
George Island project in-
cludes various sidewalks
in the island's commercial
district, mainly along Pine
Street. The exact locations
will be decided in the next
30 days, Pierce said, noting
"that if there are wetland


issues we'll have to alter
the route."
"County Road 67 was
placed on the application
list for (stimulus) funds,
but the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
kicked it out," Pierce said.
County Road 67 is a hur-
ricane evacuation route,
which runs north from
Carrabelle and has flooded
in the past.
Tommie Speights, the
District 3 public informa-
tion director for the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion, said County Road 67
would not qualify because
it would cost $10 million
to resurface. "We did not
have the funds," Speights
said. "The main reason it
did not make the list was
because of the amount of
money it would take."
Speights said County
Road 67 did meet some the
federal stimulus criteria
yet money had to be shared
with 16 other counties in
the district. "We only had
X number of dollars to put
out," he said.
Franklin County is in
Florida Department of
Transportation's District
3, which runs from Jeffer-
son County to Escambia
County.
Speights said the money
had to be divided between
the 16 counties based on
population and the gas tax
revenues. "We just did not
have $10 million to give
Franklin County," Speights
said.
Pierce said FEMA
may be able to assist the


county with repaving of
County Road 67, but noth-
ing yet has been desig-
nated. County Road 67 has
needed work for the past
20 years, he said.
He said the bulk of the
federal stimulus money is
for big projects in urban
areas and there is very
little being spent in small
areas. Yet, he said, nearly
400 people in Franklin are
unemployed, although the
$512,000 will not be enough
to change the unemploy-
ment situation.
The three Franklin
County sidewalk projects
will employ a "couple
dozen people for a couple
months," he said.
"All rural communi-
ties are in the same boat,"
Pierce said. "We are at
least 60 days until they
start work (on the side-
walks), and we are going
to try and spread the work
out as much as possible."
Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-Monticello) said,
"I supported the stimulus
bill in Congress because
it provides critical fund-
ing for area projects that
will help create jobs and
strengthen our economy."

Break-ins on the bay lead to arrests


On Saturday night, a series of break-
ins occurred both in Apalachicola and
St. George Island.
Lt. Ronnie Segree said the cases are
still under investigation, but several
suspects are currently in custody.
Some time after midnight, someone
broke into the Apalachicola Bay Char-
ter School on Fred Meyer Street in
Apalachicola. They vandalized offices
belonging to Principal Don Hungerford
and Cheri Maxwell and obtained a set of
keys that allowed them to enter most of
the rooms in the school.
In a telephone interview, Hunger-
ford said the intruders did less than
$200 worth of damage to the building
but stole between $500 and $700. He
said that they emptied the contents of
several cash boxes including one in the
front office. He also said he believed
investigators knew the identity of the
burglars.
"I was very impressed with how
quickly the sheriff's department re-
sponded and how efficient they were,"
he said.
George Janos, manager of the Blue
Parrot, said some time after midnight,
somebody attempted to enter the Tiki
Hut on the beach side of the restaurant
through the thatched roof. Because the
entire Blue Parrot complex is now wired

with motion detectors, they were unable
to enter. When the alarm sounded, the
burglars quickly left.
Steve Rash, owner of the Blue Par-
rot, said several people were later ap-
prehended attempting to break into a
truck in the parking lot of the Bucca-
neer Inn next door to the restaurant.
He said one of the detainees had appar-
ently sustained scratches attempting
to break into the Tiki Hut and, on being
questioned, confessed to the restaurant
break-in.
Segree said the persons in custody
are all underage.

The best protectors



from bullies? Girls


By Cathy Keen
Special to the Times

Playground bullies may
meet their match from
where they least expect
- in the ranks of kids who
are anti-bullies and most
of them are girls, a new
University of Florida study
finds.
"Boys may be more
likely to bully, but girls
are more likely to defend
those being bullied," said
Jim Porter, who did the
research for his doctoral
dissertation in counselor
education at UF "While a
lot of attention has been
devoted to bully prevention
programs, very little
recognition is given to kids
who jump in and try to stop
the bullying or comfort the
victim."
These playground
defenders merit attention
because research shows
that a majority of school
shootings are committed
by students who have
been bullied, and victims
of bullying are at risk for
dropping out of school,
suffering from depression
and bullying others, Porter
said. Thirty percent of
students in sixth through
10th-grade report some
experience with bullying,
either as a victim or
perpetrator, he said.
Schools overlook
good Samaritans as they
are putting a growing
number of bully prevention
programs in place, in some
cases relying on peer
mediation where students
resolve the disputes
themselves, with mixed
results, Porter said.
"What is missing in
these programs is they
don't incorporate children
who are already known
to help victims," he said.
"Understanding kids who
defend against bullying may
reveal a new avenue toward
preventing school-related
violence."
Porter surveyed 168
females and 101 males
about how they believed
their mother, father,
best friends and favorite
teachers would expect
them to respond if they
encountered another
student being bullied.
The offensive behavior
included hitting, shoving,
name-calling, teasing and
ostracizing. Participants
attended four middle
schools in North Central
Florida and were between
the ages of 10 and 15.
Peer pressure can be a
good thing, the study found.
Students said teachers and
parents were more likely
than best friends to expect


them to try to stop a bully,
but they were more likely
to actually intervene if
the message came from a
best friend. And more girls
than boys reported feeling
pressure from friends to
come to a victim's aid,
Porter said.
Eighty-five percent of
girls surveyed said their
best friend would expect
them to defend or help a
bullying victim, compared
with only 66 percent of boys,
Porter said. In contrast
to this 19 percentage gap,
there was only a 1 to 3
percentage point difference
in expectations for boys and
girls' behavior by teachers,
mothers and fathers, he
said.
Being female or having
more feminine traits as
measured by a gender
identity scale also increased
the likelihood that a student
would defend a bully, the
survey findings showed.
"Gender stereotypes
that girls are more
nurturing and boys are
more aggressive definitely
play out in how we expect
boys and girls to behave,"
he said. "Somehow we
communicate these
expectations to kids and it
can affect their behavior."
Schools may be the ideal
place to try to help change
those ideas, said Porter,
who is now a counselor
at Alachua Integrative
Medicine in Alachua. "The
news sometimes suggests
that violence makes schools
a hazardous place to be, but
schools also are where we
can learn how to get along
with others and become
adults," he said.
Giving a role in bully
prevention programs to
bystanders who step in
to defend the victims on
the playground and in the
classroom fits in with the
recent trend in educational
psychology toward positive
reinforcement, Porter said.
"There was a time when
people were more likely
to think of punishing bad
behavior," he said. "Now
there is a push toward
finding and rewarding good
behavior."
Porter said he has
always been interested
in the subject of bullying
because he was often beat
up as a "new kid" moving
from one community
to another. "I never
understood but always
wanted to discover why
some students were able to
jump in and help others,"
he said.

Readers share their memories


I've been writing the
column for a while now,
and I get pretty constant
responses from my
colleagues at school, my
students, my friends,
people in the
grocery store,
emails from old
pals, and people I
have never met.
All have been
positive except
for two one I
received today
from a visitor. RED V
The other was AND R
an anonymous Denise
missive to The
Times insulting
me personally and
professionally. With no
signature, the paper would
never publish it. The
content was vicious, and
mostly education-related.
I have since been
emailing the visitor who
really objected to my
instructions on how to
pronounce "oyster" if
a person wants to fit in
around here, He is a
career marine biologist
and wanted to make
sure I knew the correct
pronunciation.
I think we may have
patched things up a bit.
I explained that I was
not striving for Standard
English. I was simply
trying to explain the
local pronunciation
for newcomers who
want to blend. It was
meant in good-spirited
humor. Our subsequent
communications have been
amicable.
My column about the
old Red Top drew several


NI
RO
;eRc


emails. One was from a
couple in Kentucky who
also had fond memories of
eating there. They urged
me to press on, trying
to find out the drive-in's
food prep secrets.
Cynthia Taylor and
her brother Mike
wrote to say that the
red sauce for the hot
dogs would be well
nigh impossible to
re-create. According
to Cynthia and Mike,
HITE it was homemade
OUX barbecue sauce with
Roux never- measured
ingredients. The
pot sat at a constant
low simmer on the grill.
Mike remembered serving
the sauce over cabbage
and onions. I guess that it
is one taste memory that
will stay in the past. I am
still working on Cynthia to
provide the secret to the
hamburgers.
My students were
fascinated by my
recollection of the advent
of pop top cans that I first
experienced at the Red
Top. I explained that the
first ones peeled away to
be discarded and provided
a nasty sharp edge. I went
on to say that's where
the Jimmy Buffett lyric
"stepped on a pop top"
originated. It was a light
bulb moment for them. I
wish I could teach a class
in Nostalgia 101.
My column on 4-H
had a resonance that was
unexpected. Bill Ford
of Shawnee, Oklahoma,
wrote to offer support on
restarting the program.
His business, Shawnee


Milling Company,
supported the 4-H bread
project in his state for
many years. Why does
he read the Times? It
seems that he and his wife
honeymooned on Dog
Island in 1967 and bought
property there in 1968.
Former resident Shirley
Rosalis Barfield wrote
from Lakeland. She was
a 4-H state winner in the
food and nutrition category
in 1959. She remembered
Bill Zorn as the extension
agent and Ann Jeter as
the home extension agent.
Her fellow club members
included her sister Betty
Rosalis, Earline Hall,
Phyllis Stanley, Delores
Martina, Charlotte Bartley,
and Martha Richards.
Martha Richards is now
Martha Skelton and lives
in Fairview, Texas. She is
the daughter of Fred and
Dorothy Richards, both
now deceased. He was the
county property assessor
and Dorothy worked in
the same office. They
preceded John James,
who preceded Doris
Pendleton.
Mother was the
Supervisor of Elections
during the same era the
Richards were in the
courthouse. I walked
downtown most days
after school and did my
homework in Mama's
office. I remember tall,
lanky Mr. Fred and short,
round Miss Dorothy
fondly. Eldon McLeod was
the county judge. Betty
Sangaree was the tax
collector. I would make
the rounds for a visit with


them all.
Now, this falls into
the "It's a small world
category." My dad, Steve
Roux, was Martha's
seventh grade homeroom
teacher. She used to
babysit for the Jeters
in the house Mama and
Daddy bought when the
Jeters moved. I live there
today.
General compliments
and support have come
from Terryss Lovett
Hicks, now in Mississippi
and Rocky Bankester
who is now in Alabama.
Richard Gilchrist, also in
Alabama, wrote to say
he remembered Mr. Jim
Mosconis helping with
his boat in 1973. Going
even further back, Floyd
Goolsby shared childhood
memories from the '40s.
He and his dad stayed
at the fishing lodge my
grandparents, Steve and
Johnnie Roux, owned.
In addition to people
with a real connection to
Franklin County, many of
my old friends are reading
the column online. I am
on Facebook and after
so many years of not
communicating, we are all
trying to catch up.
This column will
provide pleasant
memories for some, and
a brief history lesson for
others. I hope I haven't
bored the loyal readers
who are new to the area.

Letters to the EDITOR


Sunshine Law serves public
At the most recent Franklin
County commission meeting,
commissioners bemoaned the fact
that Government-in-the-Sunshine
in Florida limits their attendance
at meetings. One even suggested
that the law should be "got rid of" or
somehow gotten around.
This is a very dangerous attitude
on the part of our elected officials.
The gripe that the commissioners
have is that two or more members
of the same board are prohibited
from attending outside meetings
where issues are discussed which
may come before them for later
action. Thus, if the Franklin County
Seafood Workers Association
holds a meeting, only one county
commissioner can be present
(unless the county commission
wants to never again write letters or
otherwise take action on behalf of the
seafood workers!).
This may seem like a severe
limitation, but the Government-in-
the-Sunshine Law is designed to
keep the public aware of the process
by which their elected officials
come to a decision. Commissioners
talking business on the phone
with one another is forbidden, for
example. Commissioners using a
staff member or other person to act
as a go-between outside meetings
is definitely illegal. Commissioners
sharing a ride to a meeting without
members of the press in the vehicle
is also a probable violation of the law.
In short, the public deserves
to hear, at a regular commission
meeting, a report from the one
commissioner who DID attend the
outside meeting. That way the public
hears about it in an identical way
that the other commissioners hear.
Adria Harper of the First
Amendment Foundation is an
acknowledged expert on this topic.
Ms. Harper told me that for two
or more members of the board to
attend meetings on issues which
may later come before them, each
meeting should be noticed properly
in the same manner that their
own meetings are noticed, and
that minutes must be taken and
entered into public record.
One of our commissioners
suggested that organizations like
the Seafood Workers could just add
some words on their advertisements
or posters saying "Two or more
Commissioners may attend." That
is simply not within the guidelines
of Florida's Government-in-the-
Sunshine law. Think about where
it would lead. Do you want your
elected officials to be able to discuss
business at their favorite restaurant


simply because the restaurant ad
said "Two or more Commissioners
might be dining together here?"
If our current county
commissioners feel they need to
have more interaction with the
public to keep up with the many
issues facing us, they could begin
by holding evening meetings. Many
more citizens could interact with
them then, including the seafood
workers.

Teachers overcome obstacles
The first year of the new
consolidated school is coming to
an end. There were a few bumps
along the way; however, the
teachers pulled it together to ensure
that every student reached their
academic, social and developmental
potential.
Teachers at the new school faced
many challenges: a new K-12 school,
different colleagues and students, a
new curriculum, and a new way of
doing things. These obstacles did not
get in the way of their professional
teaching styles. Their love and
dedication for students has made
this year a success.
So during "Teacher Appreciation
Week" May 3 to 9, if you know or
meet a teacher, say THANKS for a
job well done.

A Teacher for All Seasons
By Joanna Fuchs
A teacher is like Spring,
Who nurtures new green sprouts,
Encourages and leads them,
Whenever they have doubts.
A teacher is like Summer,
Whose sunny temperament
Makes studying a pleasure,
Preventing discontent.
A teacher is like Fall,
With methods crisp and clear,
Lessons of bright colors
And a happy atmosphere.

A teacher is like Winter,
While it's snowing hard outside,
Keeping students comfortable,
As a warm and helpful guide.

Teacher, you do all these things,
With a pleasant attitude;
You're a teacher for all seasons,
And you have my gratitude!
P. Dykes

Creative arts important
We would like to praise those
Franklin County School students
who participated in the three talent
shows recently held at the school.


On three afternoons, audiences were
treated to students demonstrating
a variety of talents ranging from
acting, singing, dancing, and
instrumental performances.
As contestants graced the stage,
audiences were enthralled and
applause filled the room as each
performance was completed. We
were glad that we did not have to be
judges because all were winners in
our eyes. From the expressions of
delight from the audience, we could
see they felt the same way too.
The talents displayed by our
students are not learned in our
school, but are self-taught for the
most part. They are an extension
of who these students are. As
teachers, we sometimes forget
that singing, dancing, acting, and
playing instruments are just as
important in the lives of our students
as academics. It takes it all to make
a person feel confident and good
about himself or herself. Academics,
sports, and performing arts are all
necessary to round out a person's
life.
If you have the talent to sing,
dance, play an instrument, or act,
consider volunteering in our school
and help our children to experience
the same joy you feel in doing it.
You'll get much more back than
you'll ever give. We need you in our
school.
Our Children Need You More!

Cashiers serve community
This letter is in response to the
gentleman that writes the Lanark
News section of the paper, regarding
the article concerning all clerks. The
customer is not our boss, yes we
appreciate your business, but take
into consideration, we also provide
a service to the community. If we
were not here to do so, then what
would happen to the businesses that
employ us? There would be none
and without those businesses there
would be no communities.
As to cell phones I agree the
clerk or cashier should not be on the
phone, but the customer should not
be on their phone or socializing when
making a purchase.
As a cashier I would like to
express my view on customer and
cashier relationships. We are a part
of this community, possibly your
neighbor. So the next time you have
to deal with a clerk or cashier, just
remember we are only human and
can make mistakes the same as
you. I would also like to add; to get
respect you have to give it first.

Special exhibit open

again this weekend

The Carrabelle Historical Soci-
ety and the Historical Preservation
Team of the Carrabelle Waterfront
Partnership, in cooperation with
the City of Carrabelle, created an
exhibit of Carrabelle history in the
former City Hall for the Riverfront
Festival.
It will be open again Friday, May 1,
and Saturday, May 2, from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. each day at the old downtown


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
At the April 21 meet-
ing of the Franklin
County commission, Jay
Abbott, president of the
county Firefighters As-
sociation, said a recent
"live wire" training ses-
sion held by Progress
Energy had not been a
complete success.
At the training ses-
sion held in early April
at Garlick Environmen-
tal Associates, repre-
sentatives of Progress
Energy were unable to
complete the program
because of electrical
problems with the dem-
onstration equipment,
said Mike Rundel, co-
ordinator of Franklin
County Emergency
Management.
The meeting was
intended to train local
emergency manage-
ment workers in tech-
niques for handling live
wires in the event of an
emergency. The train-
ing session was trig-
gered by controversy
over slower response
times by Progress En-
ergy employees ever
since the closure of the
company's Carrabelle
work yard meant trucks
were stationed farther
outside the county.
In one case, fire-
fighters were delayed
at the site of an automo-
bile accident for almost
two hours and watched
a vehicle burn, while
waiting for a Progress
team to arrive to dis-
able electrical wires.
Rundel said about


City Hall at 106 SE Avenue B.
This exhibit displays special trea-
sures of Carrabelle like "Aunt Tillie"
Miller's medical bag. The Work Life
Room explores the industries that
made the city what it is today, such as
lumbering, seafood and auto repair.
The Home Life Room features the glue
that held the city together through the
decades, such as faith, homemaking,
sewing and domestic industry. There
is also a display of old photographs
and a few surprises as well.
The city of Carrabelle lent the
building for the exhibit. The Histori-
cal Society is most grateful to all the


40 workers attended
the first meeting, where
they viewed a Power-
Point presentation and
ate barbecue.
In a telephone in-
terview, Bobby Pickels,
community relations
manager for North
Florida said in spite of
equipment problems,
those attending the
meeting got the main
message, which is don't
touch live wires.
"This has actually
given us an opportu-
nity to set up a series
of demonstrations that
emergency manage-
ment workers can come
to at a time that is con-
venient for them," he
said.
Pickels said the
demonstrations will be
held at the new consoli-
dated school, and that
Progress is working on
some new policies he
believes will satisfy the
concerns of the county
commissioners.
"Here they are try-
ing to train us to do their
job and they can't even
do that," Commissioner
Bevin Putnal said at the
April 21 meeting, add-
ing that he wanted the
county to receive fair
service from Progress.
Later in the meeting,
commissioners asked
County Attorney Mi-
chael Shuler whether
the county has recourse
against Progress for
diminished services.
Shuler said he was
researching county
options and would re-
port back at the May 5
commission meeting.


Prescribed burn

planned for St. Vincent


Greg Titus, fire man-
agement officer for
Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Com-
mission, said there will
be a prescribed burn
on St. Vincent Island
on Thursday, April 30,
possibly extending
until the morning of
Friday, May 1. About


800 acres will be
burned. The fire will
be on the Gulf side of
the island. The area af-
fected will be between
roads 2 and 4 and from
B Road to the beach. If
you believe you see a
wildfire on St. Vincent
Island or any national
refuge, call 925-5661.

WALL from paqe Al


take place at 7 p.m.
"We had over 600
motorcycles participating,
which I thought was
amazing," said Jimmy
Mosconis, the Vietnam
veteran who arranged for
the Wall to visit. "I was very
pleased at the response
today, especially on a
Tuesday, in the middle of
the week. There were a lot
of townspeople down there,
swelled with pride."
The riders, many atop
rare and unusual bikes,
threaded their motorcade
beginning at the Florida
border, and then through
Wewahitchka and Port St.
Joe to Apalachicola. At the
city limits of Apalachicola at
Two Mile, they were greeted
by a giantAmerican flag, held
aloft from the top of ladders
from fire trucks manned
by the St. George Island
Volunteer Fire Department.
Schoolchildren and
adults alike lined the streets,
waving American flags


distributed by Harry Arnold,
and often reaching out their
hands to touch those of
the passing cyclists. A sign
reading "Welcome Home,
Vets" greeted the motorcade
along Avenue E.
Riders from the Patriot
Guard, American Legion
Riders, Rolling Thunder,
Vietnam Vets Motorcycle
Club and several others
joined in the motorcade.
Overhead buzzed three
Vietnam-era Huey
helicopters, timed for the
moment the truck arrived
carrying the replica of
the Wall.
Many of the riders, who
were thanked for their
efforts by Mosconis in a
brief ceremony following
the Wall's arrival, had never
before seen the Three
Serviceman statue.
"There was a lot off
oohhing and aahhing going
on when they saw what was
there," Mosconis said. "They
were impressed with it."


DAVID ADLERSTEIN I The Times
Schoolchildren reach out to touch the hands of

The system would
require only two hours
of electricity a day and
would still work in the
event of a hurricane. It
would have a secondary
cleansing system, after
the aerobic system, which
would produce 99 percent
pure reusable grey water
so there would be no need
for a drain field.
"This system will not
lend itself to high density,"
she said. "I love the island.
I want it small, not big."
McMillan added
that the system could
be financed with grant
money.
Next three prospective
contractors pitched their
ideas to the hearing.

No silver bullet
Roger Register
spoke for Tampa Bay
Engineering (TBE).
He described his firm
as specializing in the
problems of coastal
communities and
said he had no formal
presentation. He said
that TBA has offices in
Tallahassee and has been
working in the field of
water management since
1984.
David O'Conner, an
engineer for the firm, said
that there was no silver
bullet for the island's
problems. He said the
cost of a feasibility study
would be anywhere from
$20,000 to $100,000.
Next to speak was Jim
Waddell, representing
Integra Water, of
Birmingham, AL. He said
Integra, which began as a
cable television company,
owns and operates 14
utilities across Florida
and is negotiating with 20
more.
He said Integra sees
the island's problems as
similar to those of Key
West and understands
the need to maintain the
quaint village community.
He said that Integra
seeks to subcontract with
local or regional firms.
He also said Integra has
already spent at least
$50,000 investigating the
feasibility of a St. George
Island project.
Integra has concluded
the island needs a central
water treatment system,
half of which should be
completed immediately.
"Since there are
3,228 platted equivalent
residential units, density
on St. George Island is
fixed. We understand
that building a long-term
relationship with the
community requires us
to be good environmental
stewards," he said.
Integra's proposed
systemwouldinclude state
of the art membrane filter
technology, and would
produce high-quality
effluent which could be
used for irrigation.
Waddell's talk was
illustrated at this point
with a drawing of the St.


George Island bike path
surrounded by a tropical
rainforest of palms and
hibiscus.
He promised that
the plant would be
inconspicuous with a
small footprint and would
be resistant to a Category
4 hurricane.
The proposed site for
the plant would be on
Third Street near the
sheriff's satellite station.
When Joan Young,
Integra's vice president
for business development,
made her pitch, the
commissioners balked.
She proposed the county
finance the project with
20-year bonds and use tap
fees to recover the capital
investment.
"We have never floated
a bond during my time in
office and I don't think we
should start now," said
Commissioner Cheryl
Sanders.

I feel like I represent
the customers
The final speaker was
Gene Brown, manager
of the St. George Island
Utility Company. He said
he had begun supplying
water to the island in 1974
when he had 20 customers,
and now has 2,000.
He proposed to build
a plant at the northwest
corner of the island
commercial area which
would provide water
treatment for structures
from Third St. East to
Third St. West.
"My option to buy
that property expires in
November," Brown said.
"If you want me to do
nothing, please let me
know soon. I've spent a
lot of time and money on
this."
Mike Chevalier of PBS
& J Inc. said SGI Utility
proposes retrofitting
existing holding tanks to
work with low-pressure
grinder pumps. The
water would not be used
for irrigation but would
be pumped into rapid
infiltration basins.
He said that while
this is not state-of-the-
art technology, it is an
excellent money-saving
alternative. He also
pointed out that native
island vegetation does not
require irrigation.
He said the system
would withstand a
Category 4 hurricane.
Chevalier said there
would be 142 equivalent
residential connections
(ERC), but that the system
was designed for 400
ERCs. He said the system
would be self financing.
Brown said the plant
could be online in 12
months.

What if we do
nothing?
Jason Flowers,
environmental health
specialist for the county


health department said, "I
think this system is needed,
especially from Third Street
to Third Street."
Commissioner Bevin
Putnal asked, "What if we
do nothing?"
Steve Rash, owner of
the Blue Parrot said, "You
would allow a lot of people
to break the law. Something
has to be done because
you've got the whole
island covered with houses
and businesses that are
nowhere near compliant."
Rash urged the
commission to order
a study to determine
what the island's water
treatment problems really
are and what the source of
the pollution is. He argued
that many rental homes on
the island have inadequate
water treatment
equipment.
"I live on the island and
when I stand in my yard I
don't see or smell anything
that makes me think there
is a problem with sewage,"
said Commissioner
Pinki Jackel. "I know we
have problems, but it's
isolated."
Dan Tonsmeire of the
Apalachicola Riverkeeper
said he too favored an
environmental study
to aid the county in its
decision. He said he feared
the consequences of a
centralized wastewater
treatment plant.
"Excessive stormwater
and density are things that
are going to come with
a wastewater treatment
plant," he said. "I have
to disagree with Jim
(Waddell). The county
commission can hold the
line on that but in the past
that has not happened
anywhere else."
Island resident Gail
Riegelmayer is one of
a group of grassroots
environmentalists known
as the Goldenrods who
have been discussing
environmental issues on
St. George Island.
"I don't support a
centralized system,"
she said. "I don't think
we need it and it would
lead to higher density
and overdevelopment.
I would like to see a
modular system. We should
approach this problem
in an environmentally
sensitive fashion using the
best and most sustainable
technology available."
She said the guiding
principals of her group
are a system that is self-
contained, affordable
and sustainable with low-
density development.
Riegelmayer requested
that the commission ask
Brown not to proceed for
the moment and to create a
task force.
"We need enforcement
consistency to bring
businesses into compliance
with health department
standards," she said.
In spite of an informative
meeting, the future of
wastewater treatment on
St. George Island remains
in limbo.

Deshaun Winfield signs with Daytona State


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor


Franklin County High School
senior Deshaun Winfield soared
as a Seahawk this year, leading
the varsity basketball team to a
district crown, dominance of the
region and a berth in the Class 2A
Final Four.
Now it's time for him to fly like
a Falcon.
In a quiet ceremony in the
school's media center April 16,
flanked by his family and Daytona
State College basketball coach
Anthony Andre, Winfield signed
a scholarship agreement to play
next year for the Volusia County
college. It covers tuition, room and
board, and can be for as much as
two years, if Winfield maintains a
2.0 grade point average and com-
pletes at least 30 hours of study.
He then will have a chance both
to earn an associate's degree and
showcase his talents on the colle-
giate level.
"He's deceptive," said Andre,
an all-conference player at the
University of West Alabama, who
went on to play professional ball in
South America and Europe before
embarking on a coaching career.
"As he gets bigger and stron-
ger, he's going to be fun to watch,"
said the coach. "He's got some
unique skills. He handles the ball
well, is quick to the rebounds and

he's fearless."
Winfield's mom, Melissa
Thomas, who was front row court-
side the entire season, sat by her
son during the signing, accompa-
nied by her sister, Stella Bryant.
Also on hand were Winfield's
brothers, sophomore James
Winfield and freshman Taveion
Winfield. A third brother, Antwoin
Lewis, a former Apalachicola
Shark basketball player, is now at
Santa Fe Community College.
Just as he was during the
season, when he led the team in
scoring and rebounding, Deshaun


Winfield did not do a lot of talk-
ing at the ceremony. He thanked
everyone for coming out for the
signing, and for supporting the
Seahawks throughout the year,
before wishing his teammates
well next season.
Coach Fred Drake was instru-
mental in securing the scholar-
ship for Winfield, reaching out
early in the year to Andre through
an e-mail.
"I like to respond to all e-mails.
You never know what you might
get," said Andre. "We can't see
everybody and with the web and


DVDs, we're able to cover some
ground."
Drake sent Andre film of Win-
field, but that was just the begin-
ning, as the 6'3" post player had
to prove what he could do beyond
just scoring points under the bas-
ket.
"Some of the things caught my
eye what he was doing and it was
enough for me to come up. Some-
times what you see on tape is a lit-
tle different than what you see in
real life," said Andre, who watched
the Seahawks trounce Cottondale
for the regional crown.
"I wasn't disappointed," he
said.
Winfield's visit to the campus
in Daytona sealed the deal, as he
had a chance to play against some
of the current players. "He played
with some of the guys and he held
his own," said Andre, who plans
to transform Winfield into more
of a forward, and hone his outside
shooting.
"Now he's going to play fac-
ing the basket more," said Andre.
"He has to get stronger. When he
comes in, he's goingto getknocked
around a little physically."
Winfield will join a squad that
went 12-19 last year, a rebuilding
season that featured only one re-
turning player, and seven fresh-
men, including Ramoane Jordan,
a 5'11 guard from Niceville High
School.


The 2009-10 season, though,
will feature nine returners who
will be called upon to mentor Win-
field and the other recruits, in-
cluding a point guard from Westo-
ver High School in Albany, GA,
another player from South Lake
High School outside Orlando and
a third from the Clearwater area.
"These guys can have the op-
portunity to learn from the older
guys," said Andre. "Ideally, that's
what you want."
The coach stressed that the
opportunity is more than just an
athletic one for Winfield. "This
may be his first 'job'," said Andre.
"The scholarship is his contract to
go to school and play basketball
and he has to do both in order to
get a contract for his sophomore
year."
Daytona State is a member of
the National Junior College Ath-
letic Association and the Florida
Community College Athletics
Association Mid-Florida Confer-
ence.
While the 2009-10 schedule has
yet to be finalized, last year the
Falcons played in the Gulf Coast
Community College's Thanksgiv-
ing Classic in Panama City, and
against Tallahassee Community
College in Ocala.
The school is approximately
340 miles from Apalachicola, a
driving time of a little more than
five hours.


North Florida Christian edges Seahawks for district crown


By Christy Thompson
Special to the Times

The Lady Seahawks
softball team fell to North
Florida Christian at home
in the district champion-
ship last Thursday.
As could be imagined,
this is a difficult article to
write considering all of the
positive motivation and
hard work put forth into
this season. The heart-
ache is still fresh with this
loss and most of us are
quite bitter over the op-
posing coach's deliberate
interference during the
top of the sixth inning.
Despite the over-
whelming amount of er-
rors committed by the Se-
ahawks, this interference
was hugely detrimental to
our momentum. We had
two outs with two runners
on base and this foul ball
that floated over toward
the visitors' dugout could
have retired the bats of
North Florida and spared
those four extra runs.
However, it actually went
down a different way.
The opposing coach

Welcoming

the new

coach


didn't move, but instead
just stood there and wait-
ed for third baseman Mor-
gan "Noodle" Newell to
crash into her while trying
to field the foul ball, which
inevitably hit the top of
her glove and fell to the
ground. Obviously, the Se-
ahawks were in an uproar
over this incident as the
North Florida coach just
gloated. A picture is worth
a thousand words never
seemed so true.
I hate to drag on about
that one incredibly huge
mishap when the Se-
ahawks really just missed
opportunities to win this
game. In all actuality, the
girls made more errors
in this game than in any
game all season. There
were 15 errors made in
our defensive play during
this game. It was utterly
frustrating and painful
to watch as these routine
catches were just dropped
or missed. I can conceive
of the first inning being
due to nerves. I was near-
ly sick on my stomach as
well with intense anticipa-
tion. Committing sense-
less errors has plagued


this team all year long, but
this time it really packed a
punch. It was a hard loss
for us all.
North Florida came
out with bats swinging to
score a total of seven at
their first at-bat. The Se-
ahawks answered with
five runs and kept scoring
throughout the game, but
came up short, losing 15-
11. It was the best offen-
sive game of the season
for the Seahawks, but the
worst defensive game dis-
played by far.
Even though the mis-
takes were haunting us
defensively, it was a great
game to watch because
the girls fought hard up
until the very end. We
were prepared and ev-
erything was in order for
this game. There just isn't
much room for victory
with errors leaking over
into double digits.
The Lady Seahawks
will grow from this expe-
rience and only get bet-
ter. It was a big game and
we did blow our chances,
but this will make these
girls hungry for more next
year. The Seahawks are


district runner-up and did
receive a trophy to add to
the display case. The Se-
ahawks also play another
game April 28 against
Port St. Joe due to this
accomplishment and still
have a chance to further
advance.
All in all, this was a
much better season than
last year's and I can only
hope for that much better
next year. The softball dis-
trict changes for the 2010
season and will include
Port St. Joe, Wewahitchka,
Liberty County, and West
Gadsden. I do still plan to
keep North Florida on the
schedule if possible. We
have unfinished business
with those girls and it also
presents a good challenge
for the Seahawks as well
as publicity with area col-
leges.
Christy Thompson is
the coach of the Lady Se-
ahawks varsity softball
team.

coach Leah Armstrong in the sixth inning of the
district championship game Thursday. Armstrong
made no effort to get out of Newell's way, which
she is required to do, and declared that the coach's
box afforded her "sanctuary" throughout the play.
After conferring, both umpires ruled the ball had
already been dropped before Newell made contact
with Armstrong and did not declare the batter out.
They did, however, caution Armstrong that coaches
are required to give the fielder the right-of-way, even
when they are standing in the coach's box.

Apalach boat show winner a sentimental favorite


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
The llth annual Apala-
chicola Antique Car and
Boat Show ran like clock-
work this year, thanks to
perfect weather and the
organization and expertise
of Chamber of Commerce
director Anita Grove and
her staff.
Exhibitors and visitors
to the show all praised the
lovely waterfront setting
and the friendliness of lo-
cal people. All told, 57 an-
tique cars and boats were
on display.
The Saturday evening
post-show mixer was ca-
tered by Grove's husband,
Mark. Keynote speaker
was master boat builder
Roger Allen, director of
the Cortez Maritime Mu-


seum in South Florida.
Allen gave a fascinating
account of his career. High-
points included organizing
the East Coast contingent
of the first American del-
egation to the world's big-
gest wooden boat show,
The Brest International
Festival of the Sea, held in
Brest, France.
"I personally believe
that a maritime museum
can pass a great many
good things on to our chil-
dren," Allen told a rapt
audience. "The purpose
of a maritime museum is
preservation of traditional
skills and values. America
has become a country
where, when something
breaks, you don't fix it, you
go to Wal-Mart and buy it.
That's not America. That's

"I thinkbuilding wooden
boats will slow that down,"
he said. "Museums are not
for moneymaking. They
are for telling the story of
the people. They should
provide meaningful work
for volunteers. Unless you
have local people in there
working, you're not a mu-
seum and on the water is
as important as having
tools in your hand."
He finished his talk with
a demonstration of how to
build a wooden boat, illus-
trated with slides, models
and hand tools.

The Miss Helen
returns


John Taylor's boat,
the "Miss Helen," is a real
beauty and how she came
into Taylor's possession is
a story worth telling. The
1960 Correct Craft Starflite
won Best in Show in the
2009 Apalachicola Antique
Car and Boat Show, but
she wasn't always such a
pampered lady.
The boat was purchased
new in 1960 by Taylor's fa-
ther. Taylor remembers
spending many happy
hours waterskiing behind
her and cruising Lake
Seminole, St. Joe Bay and
the Apalachicola River.
Shortly after he went
away to college, the boat
was stored away in a to-
bacco barn and later sold
to a man in Tallahassee.

a visit to the Thousand

the Antique Boat Museum
in Clayton.

Community


garden


taking root

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

Franklin County has embraced
community gardening with the
kind of obsession that Yvonne
Tolliver's mother used to say
her daughter possessed.
"You ought to go to Gardeners
Anonymous," she'd say.
Evidently, the addiction has
spread to Yvonne Tolliver's husband,
Arnold, who tends to their plot in the
Apalachicola Community Garden at
least three times a day. And his wife
goes just about as much. Plus she has
more than 100 roses at home in her
own garden.
Theirs is one of the most flourishing
of the 29 beds at the garden, sprouting
a robust crop that includes red and
white onions, radicchio, Swiss chard,
tomatoes and peppers.
George Watkins has less variety,
focusing on squash and onions, but his
is doing nicely as well, as are many of
the other beds in the garden across
from the Chestnut Cemetery, sporting
such as names as "Weed 'Em and
Reap" and "The Garden of Eden."
They are some of the 54 participants
in the garden project, so many that
there is a waiting list to take part, at a
cost of a $35 annual fee.
On April 22, Earth Day, about
75 people turned out for a blessing of the
garden ceremony, which stemmed from
the city's Community Pride initiative.
Held under sunny skies, those gathered
were welcomed by Apalachicola Mayor
Van Johnson and Karla Ambos, chair of
the garden committee.
The ceremony featured blessings
from five members of the local clergy,
including Vicar Martha Harris, of Trinity
Episcopal; Pastor David Walker, of
Covenant Word; Pastor Themo Patriotis,
of First United Methodist; Minister
Valentina Webb and her husband,
Thomas; and the Rev. John Sink, a
retired United Methodist minister.
Twenty-six of the beds were built by
prisoners and, including the topsoil and
the organic compost, run about $250
each. The other three were built by
volunteers.
Ambos said the garden project has
been the recipient of private donations,
plus the county health department funded
eight of the beds. The city covers the cost
of the monthly water bill.
Gardeners are free to plant whatever
they wish, and other than requiring that
they not use pesticides, "we don't tell
people what they have to do," Ambos
said. "A lot of them are every experienced
gardeners."
Like Jenny Billings, Watkins, the
Tollivers and Willie Joe Walker all have
burst out of the gate first with their
plantings. The Apalachicola Bay Charter
School has been working a large plot,
mainly cared for by students in Marie
Lee's multi-age second-, third- and
fourth-grade classroom, Karen Ward's
kindergarten and first-grade classroom
and several middle-schoolers.

Consolidated school
creates beds of green
Middle school students at the
consolidated school have been busy
with their own garden at the Eastpoint
campus as well, under the watchful eye
of science teacher Spencer Tolbert.
He teaches an elective horticulture
class, mostly to seventh-graders but to
some sixth-graders, and they have been
busy since late last year tending their
plots.
Mustard greens and radishes have
been blooming lately, but at the plot
tended by Curtis Gordie Jr., he's had a
bumper crop of broccoli, cauliflower and
chard.

Tolbert said there have been arugula,
spinach, parsley, even potatoes, and some
mishaps, such as the tomatoes freezing
solid.
But overall it's been a wonderful
project, exciting the students as they
grow crops without the help of fertilizers
or pesticides. "We grow everything from


seed," he said.
The students built the wooden
beds themselves, one square meter,
50 centimeters deep, with the plantings
built on a foundation of landscaping cloth.
"They know everything has to
overlap like an old cabin," Tolbert said.

"I'm cheating," Tolbert said. "I'm
actually getting a little thermal help
out of this."
The plantings have continued up to
this month, he said.

Apalachicola is among several gardens
throughout the state to have received
a supply of seeds from the Florida
Department of Health's "Grow Healthy"
- Community Garden Project.
Part of the state's Comprehensive
Cancer Control Program, the project is
designed to support healthful lifestyles
and cancer awareness. Research has
shown that a nutritious diet and exercise
can diminish the risk for colon and
breast cancer. People can also lower
their risk of cancer and other chronic
diseases by not smoking and getting
appropriate screening to treat problems
early.
Selected projects have received a
supply of seeds (green beans, lettuce,
basil, radish, tomato and carrots),
information on community gardens and
health education materials. Winning
entries also include gardens in Miami,
Dade City, Bronson, Chipley, Spring Hill,
Palm Coast, Bristol, Wauchula, Bunnell,
Defuniak Springs, Live Oak, Brooksville,
Ocala, St. Petersburg, Panama City,
Tamarac, Jacksonville and Palatka.

PET OF THE

PET WEEK


Oscar, a 1-year-old orange tabby
cat, arrived at the Adoption Center
a month ago. He is a sweet, truly
affectionate boy, current on his shots
and has been neutered.
Call Kam at 670-8417 for more
details or visit the Franklin County
Humane Society at 244 State Route
65 in Eastpoint. You may log onto the
website at www.forgottenpets.org to
see more of our adoptable pets.
Remember, when you adopt a friend
for life, you not only save the life of
that pet, you make room for us to save
the life of one more abandoned dog or
cat!
We also need donations of bleach,
laundry soap, cat litter, dog toys and
treats. Anything you can give would
be greatly appreciated.


The big laughs were generated by the host of other
performers, led by Big Jim Thompson, as the Ole Tim-
er, who was upstaged by his grandson, Little Jimmy
Thompson, who stole the show as Mortimer Harshly,
Jr.
Donnie Denig, as the sidekick known only as Side-
kick; Royce Rolstad, as the Chinese pseudo-philoso-
pher Wing Tip; and Jeff Ilardi, as cigar store Indian
Lonely Wolf, were impeccable in the comic touches.
Cierra Russell, as the chaste maiden Little Victoria,
and her man, Warren Van Bramer as cavalry Lt. Pete
Bogg, were perfect as the overly serious balance to all
the hilarity.
Rolstad added a note of excellent stand-up comedy
in his olio, a sort of vaudeville routine. Also perform-
ing their olios, which added variety and pacing to the
show, were wondrous songstress Tamara Marsh, and
comedians Elaine Kozlowsky, Janyce Loughridge and
Liz Sisung.
The fun evening ended too soon with the cast lead-
ing the audience in a sing-along of "Home on the
Range" and other famed Americana, accompanied by
Tom Adams, who provided music for the show.

'Shame of Tombstone' pride of Panhandle


PHOTO BY DAVID ADLERSTEIN
Little Jimmy Thompson, as Mortimer Harshly, Jr., at left, relished his cameo appearance. Behind
him, from left, are his grandfather, Big Jim Thompson, Laura Ward, Warren Van Bramer and Cierra
Russell.


The Panhandle Players closed out their 2008-09 sea-
son last weekend with the most over-the-top, melodra-
matic and overacted production in recent memory, full
of cardboard cutout characters and a ridiculous plot
that made your eyes roll around in your head like dice
on a barroom floor
In short, it was a fantastic production.
Under the direction of Tom Loughridge, who dou-
bled as master of ceremonies, the large cast brought
to life Tim Kelly's "The Shame of Tombstone," a com-
ic melodrama based on the morality tales of the Old
West.
From the moment Laura Ward walked on stage in a
skimpy maid's outfit, speaking French as "Fifi" with a
Spanish accent, the show was a rambunctious evening
of outrage, silliness, hissing and hysteria.
Margy Oehlert as the town's meddlesome moralist,
Flora Courtland; Henry Kozlowsky as the cackling vil-
lain, Judge Mortimer Harshly; and Laura Baney as the
scheming hussy, Peachy Jam, all kept the show mov-
ing along with energetic performances. Jan Sheddan,
in her first big role with the Panhandle Players, added
a touch of delicacy as the demure heroine, Amanda
Goodsort.

First Pentecostal Holiness youth shine at competition


Apalachicola First
Pentecostal Holiness
youth, a.k.a. "Zero
Gravity," traveled to
Jacksonville earlier this
month to take part in a
statewide competition.
The competition was open
to all youth affiliated with
the Florida SonShine
Conference. There are 254
churches that are in this
organization in the state of
Florida.
The Sonshine
Conference belongs to the
International Pentecostal
Holiness Church.
The youth that
participated in the
competition were Josh


Dooley, Brandon Jones,
Ciara Moore, Maranda
Moses, Hunter Shiver, and
Bobby Wintons. These
six youth entered in five
different divisions, and won
first place in each division
they entered.
First to take the stage
from our church was Moses,
who sat on a stool and played
an acoustic guitar while
singing an original worship
song entitled "Close to You"
that she had written just
before Easter.
After a few other
performancesfromdifferent
churches, Wintons took the
stage to play a solo on the
grand piano. Bobby played


"Moving Forward," written
by Ricardo Sanchez.
Afterwards, the band
"The Reel," which includes
Moses, Dooley, Jones,
and Wintons performed
an upbeat powerful
song entitled "It's a New
Day," written by First
Pentecostal's youth pastor,
Justin Odom, and co-written
by Jones.
The crowd became very
ecstatic when the band
started to play. The song
came to end, with the large
crowd giving a standing
ovation.
Moore chose to worship
in classical dance. Ciara
did a beautiful interpretive


dance to the powerful song
"How Great is Our God,"
written by Chris Tomlin.
The final participant
from our church was Hunter
Shiver, who performed an
awesome mime to the song
"East to West," written by
Casting Crowns.
Each of these youth is
now preparing to attend
National Competition at
Youth Quest 2009, which will
be in Greensboro, North
Carolina, this July.
In all the performances
and the winnings, the youth
would like to give all the
praise to God. Without Him
our talents and abilities are
meaningless.

Truck driver cited
in construction site
crash
An April 14 collision
on U.S. 98, in which a log
truck slammed into a car
stopped at a construction
site, caused plenty of dam-
age but spared everyone
serious injury.
According to a media
release prepared by Flor-
ida Highway Patrolman
Trooper Matthew Kirk-
land, George Davis, 61, of
Greensboro, was cited for
careless driving and faulty
equipment as a result of the
crash, which happened at
1:18 p.m. on U.S. 98, about
five miles east of Eastpoint.
According to Kirkland's


report, Davis was driving
a 1991 Kenworth Tractor
eastbound on US 98 within
a road construction area.
He failed to stop in time and
collided into the rear of a
2003 Kia four-door, driven
by Barbara Merrell, 61, of
Bronson.
Merrell's Kia, which was
stopped at the time in the
eastbound lane of US 98 for
a flagman, was propelled
forward onto the west
shoulder. It then collided
into the rear of a 1995 Plym-
outh van, driven by Curtis
Bright Jr., 63, of Gainesville,
which was also stopped at
the time.
Merrell and Bright were
both wearing their seat-
belts, although Davis was
not. Alcohol was not a factor
in the crash.
Only Merrell required
immediate medical atten-
tion and she was airlifted
to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital, where she was
treated and later released
for minor injuries. Her
daughter said she is re-
cuperating at the home of
her son and is doing well,
despite the severity of the
accident.
Kirkland's report esti-
mated that Merrell's Kia
sustained $15,000 in dam-
age, and that the other two
vehicles each sustained
$10,000 in damages.

Division of Forestry gets
stimulus money
Under the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the
Tallahassee District of the Florida
Division of Forestry has been award-
ed $25,000 in stimulus money dedi-
cated to mitigating wildfires through
fuel reduction.
Franklin County, as part of the
Tallahassee District, will benefit
from two projects.
A brown tree cutter will be used
to mow 136 acres around Light-
house Point. Operations Administra-
tor Kawika Bailey said the area is
too close to structures to be safely
burned but the mower will reduce to
mulch this potential fuel.


"When the mower is finished, you
could grow flowers in it," he said.
A controlled burn on Bald Point
will also be funded by the stimulus
money.
North Florida Reforestation of
Sopchoppy was awarded the con-
tract for the mitigation projects.
Bailey said there is a possibil-
ity that another $250,000 in stimulus
money will be awarded to the district
in the future.

Land Trust to host strategies
workshop
The Franklin County Community
Development & Land Trust Corpo-
ration will be hosting a workshop
on strategies for Public Officials on


Saturday, May 9 at the Apalachicola
Community Center from 11 a.m.
to 1:30 p.m. More than one city or
county commissioner may be in at-
tendance.

Weems to destroy Dr.
Nichols' records
George E. Weems Memorial Hos-
pital became custodian of unclaimed
medical records upon the closing of
Nichols Clinic. Any unclaimed re-
cords will be destroyed on May 30,
2009.
This serves as public notice
as required by law. If you have any
questions, please feel free to contact
Weems Memorial Medical Records
Department at 653-8853 ext 117.

IN MEMORY OF THE DEAD







Mark Curenton,
a student
of the Civil
War, places a
commemorative
flag on the
grave of a
Confederate
soldier in
Chestnut
Cemetery last
week, in honor
of Confederate
Memorial Day,
marked in
Florida on April
26. Miniature
versions of the
Confederacy's
third battle flag
were placed
