Thanks to an active El Nino,
the Gulf coast may be heading
into a mild storm season.
Mike Jamski, forecaster for
the National Oceanographic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) office in Tallahassee,
said the Western hemisphere is
emerging from a neutral period
and a weak El Nino has begun to
develop in the Pacific Ocean.
El Nino is a warming of sur-
face ocean waters in the eastern


tropical Pacific. During a strong
El Niho, temperatures can rise
as much as 15 degrees above nor-
malfromthecoastofPeruacross
the central Pacific.
The heat and humidity from El
Nihochangesglobalatmospheric
circulation and disrupts weather
and climate patterns in many re-
gions around the world. El Nino
alternates with La Nina, a cooling
of the same region of the Pacific.
The temperature change with El
Nina is usually less drastic.
Neutral is the term used when
neither El Niho nor La Niba is


present in the Pacific. About half
of all years are classified as neu-
tral years.
The name El Niho, from
the Spanish for "the little boy,"
refers to the Christ child, because
the phenomenon is usually no-
ticed around Christmas time.
NOAA expects this El Niho to
continue developing during the
next several months, with fur-
ther strengthening possible. The
event is expected to last through
winter 2009-10.

Downtown


Improvement Board
The Apalachicola city
commission approved
the formation Tues-
day afternoon of a new
Downtown Improve-
ment Board, designed
to plan and coordinate a
downtown revitalization -,
program. JOE TAYLOR
The new board was
approved by a 3-0 vote at
a special meeting called to sign paper-
work on a half-million dollar loan from
the U.S. Department of Agriculture Ru-
ral Development office. Commission-
ers Mitchell Bartley and Jimmy Elliott
were absent.
Apalachicola store owner Joe Tay-
lor outlined the new board's mission,
which is "to unify a broad range of in-
terests in order to plan and coordinate
a downtown revitalization program to
promote economic development and
historic preservation."
Unlike the Apalachicola Chamber of
Commerce, the new board would direct
its attention only to the downtown area,
and would not have a broader focus on
the entire city.

said the new board "would maximize
public and private resources to ree-

Franklin County opened the
Fourth of July holiday weekend with
a ribbon cutting on the new East-
point boat ramp on Patton Drive, the
first piece of a dock project county
officials hope will soon extend all the
way to U.S. 98.
Four county commissioners were
joined on July 1 by two officers from
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) in snip-
ping the baby blue ribbon tied across
the recently completed ramp. Only
Commissioner Bevin Putnal was ab-
sent, due to having hand surgery.
"This will preserve the heritage
of the seafood industry in Eastpoint,
for as long as we can preserve it,"
said Commissioner Pinki Jackel,
whose district includes both the St.
George Island and Eastpoint water-
fronts.
In his blessing, the Rev Casey
Smith from the Eastpoint Church
of God, asked for God's keeping it "a
safe haven, a place of recreation and
excitement, as well as prosperity for
our commercial fisher-
men."
Flinded by two FWC
grants, one covering the
$68,750 cost of design and
the other the $396,000 a


cost of construction, the project
dates back to Nov 2007, when Com-
mission Chairman Russell inked the
deal for the design phase with engi-
neering firm Bailey, Bishop & Lane.
One year later, the construction
grant paperwork was signed by
Commissioner Chairman Smokey
Parrish, with thatworkcompletedby
a host of companies, including Polo-
ronis Construction, Coastline Con-
struction, Jason White Construction
and Sol Verde.
"It's been a long, hard battle,"
said Parrish, at the dedication. "It's
been a vision of mine and the county
commission to enhance the boat
ramps in this county. I'm proud to
see that happen."
Capt. Donald Duval, said on be-
half of FWC, that "what it's all about
is providing places for people to use
the resource."
Jacket thanked the many contrac-
tors and county employees on hand,
including the planning office's Roxie
Allenwhobakedthesheetcakethat
was served at the onside reception.
She said she was grateful for
the cooperation of the contractors,
who worked with her
in refining the finished
product. "I appreci-


ate their patience with me adding a
woman's touch," Jackel said.

Willie Poloronis, owner of Poloro-
nis Construction, said the work in-
cluded removal of about 200 loads of
river bottom to create enough depth,
about five feet, for the ramp to work
effectively.
The project includes a the main

floats with the tide, and is linked to
the shore by an aluminum walkway.
The parking lot has been repaved,
with oyster shells forming the base
of the area leading up to the newly
installed concrete ramp that slopes
into the water. Adjacent is a 40' long
work dock, a more rugged struc-
ture designed for oyster boats. Solar
lighting will illuminate the area.
Boaters and fishermen alike
are raving about the new ramp, al-
though one commissioner has said
some further steps may be needed
to eliminate a potential problem.
At the July 7 commission meet-
ing, Putnal said the county needs
to secure some additional gravel to
place at the end of the ramp, so that
there is a more even slope, rather

State funding for the Carrabelle Wa-
terfront Partnership ends in August but
organizers of the program want the city
to continue to participate.
At the July 2 meeting of the Carra-
belle city commission, Tamara Allen,
program manager for the Carrabelle
Waterfront Partnership asked the com-
mission to allow the project to continue
beyond the end of state funding August
31. She asked to continue using the old
one-room Coast Guard office on the wa-
terfront as a center of operations. The
city pays for utilities in the building,
which it owns.
Waterfronts Florida, a subsidiary of
the Department of Community Affairs
(DCA), offers help to coastal local gov-
ernments in the state to revitalize their
working waterfronts by providing re-
sources for planning.
In addition, the program designates
selected communities to receive tech-
nical and limited financial assistance

The county commission
has approved plans to con-
struct a commercial hangar
at Apalachicola Regional
Airport, but future use of the
facility is still in question,
At the July 7 meeting,
commissioners voted unani-
mously to go ahead with
construction of an 11,000-
square-foot commercial
hangar, although how the

--'" lbeusedpis)uonsdals
(RFP) for use of the facility

RFPs were received. Sky-
watch Ventures of Valdosta
and Bill Ruic, the fixed-base
operator, each proposed to
use the hangar as a paint
shop for aircraft. Neither
proposal gave specific in-
formation about funding or
proposed fees for use of the
hangar.
Lee Lewis, ofAvcon, the
engineering consultant for
the airport, said there were
two options for use of the
facility. He said the build-
ing could house a shop to
service aircraft as large as
a King Air BeechCraft or
that a portion of the hangar
could house offices to gener-
ate rental income. He said it
was also possible the space
could be leased for aircraft
storage.
"Do you have someone
who's willing to lease the
building you build?" Com-
missioner Pinki Jackel
asked.
"Worst-case scenario,
we will have very competi-
tive lease rates," Lewis an-
swered.
He said his firm had de-
signed the hangar based on


L\~~


Lee Lewis
the original grant amount
of $1.24 million. The state
reduced the amount of the
grant money by $150,000 in
June.
Lewis said Avcon hopes
the cut in funding is tempo-
rary.
"We can build the basic
building but it will be tight,"
he told the commission.
He said that Florida De-
partment of transportationn
is funding the entire project,
with no matching funds re-
quired.
"Apainthangaroroffices,
those are decisions that can
be made in the future. We
only get one chance at this
building," Lewis warned the
commission. "A number of
contractors have indicated
this is the most competitive
time to build."
County Planner Alan
Pierce said private-sector
support will be needed to
complete the project. "We
have no signed leases for
office space, and the brief
synopses these two compa-
nies have turned in don't talk


about financing," he said.
"I think it's important
that we get this with the un-
derstanding that we can't be
responsible for any of the
funding," said Commission-
er Bevin Putnal.
Commissioner Noah
Lockley moved to proceed
with plans for construction,
Jacket asked Lewis to pro-
vide commissioners with a
breakdown of the numbers
for the project.
Pierce said the project is
on schedule to accept bids
for construction of the han-
gar. The commission will
open bids Aug. 4 and pos-
sibly award the contract on
Aug. 18, he said.
Pierce said the bids will
give separate costs for con-
structing just the hangar's
shell, the paint shop and
the offices. Once bids are
opened, the county can
make a more informed de-
cision on what path to take
for the hangar's construc-
tion based on the estimated
cost of construction, Pierce
said.

Roadside trash is a
growing problem around
the county. The Gulf Coast
Workforce Board will pro-
vide extra help with trash
cleanup during the high
season,
At the July 7 meeting,
county commissioners
discussed roadside trash.
Commissioner Bevin Put-
nal said Transfield Services
(formerly VMS), the firm
under contract to clean
the shoulders and ditches
of county roads, is not ad-
equately maintaining the
area between 10th Street
and State Route 65 in East-
point.
He asked County Plan-
ner Alan Pierce to send a
letter of complaint to Bob
English, interim director
for Transfield
Solid Waste Director Van
Johnson said he believed
the number of day-trippers
to county beaches has in-


creased this season because
of economic conditions and
that the amount of trash has
increased as well.
He said he would investi-
gate deploying more work-
ers to pick up trash on the
weekends when the major-
ity of day visitors travel to
the beach.
Pierce told commission-
ers the county was eligible
for four temporary workers
under the Gulf Coast Work-
force Board National Emer-
gency Grant program. He
said such workers could be
used to supplement regular
county employees for trash
pickup.
The board voted unani-
mously to accept the work-
ers after the contract is re-
viewed by County Attorney
Michael Shuler.
Pierce said the workers
would be subject to drug
tests and screening. He
said they could not work
on the bridges but could be
used for litter control on the
approaches to the bridges.


In a later telephone in-
terview, Johnson said Fon-
da Davis is the liaison with
the Workforce Board.
He said two existing
county employees charged
with beach cleanup will
oversee the temporary
workers, who will be em-
ployed for a six-month pe-
riod. The temporary em-
ployees will be available to
work on weekends.
Kim Bodine, executive
director for the Gulf Coast
Workforce Board, said the
county will receive about
$44,000 in funding out of a
more than $400,000 grant
that will serve Bay, Gulf
and Franklin counties.
She said the state made
the funds available through
an emergency declaration
related to April 2009 flood-
ing and storms, and that
the funds are earmarked
for cleanup related to that
disaster.
She said the four local
residents who are hired will
work for up to six months


and get paid $10 per hour.
They will have to have their
own transportation to East-
point, where the county will
run a van to the cleanup
sites.
The Gulf Coast Work-
force Board, headquar-
tered at the Workforce
Center at Gulf Coast Com-
munity College in Panama
City, is one of 24 regional
workforce boards around
Florida. It is chartered to
serve the workforce and
training needs of Bay, Gulf,
and Franklin counties,

Editorial




Health care reform, Franklin County style


Thursday, July 16, 2009


A4 | The Times


During this sticky summer
weather in Washington,
politicians are dealing with a
sticky challenge. Senators and
congressmen have before them
the monumental task of reforming
the nation's health care system.
Drug companies have
promised to return $80 billion in
savings over the next 10 years to
Medicare recipients. Hospitals
have upped the ante and pledged
to give back $155 billion.
President Obama is pushing
hard to deliver on a promise
he made during the campaign,
to bring coverage to 46 million
uninsured Americans and rein in
expanding heath care costs, the
single largest stumbling block to
the nation's economic growth.
Republicans are balking
at Democrats' plans for
universal coverage, decrying a
public insurance option as an
enormously expensive step that
will limit patient choice and stifle
private enterprise.
There are plenty of options
on the table whether they
he single-payer, tort reform,
tax breaks, trigger plans, co-
op plans, you name it and
they're complicated. But most
important, the sheer vastness of
the challenge is out of the hands
of ordinary American citizens who
don't sit in the hallowed halls of
Congress or in the board rooms
of huge pharmaceutical giants or
hospital chains.
Ordinary people who live
in faraway big cities and small
towns, in places like Franklin
County, who deal every day
with the simple challenge of
keeping themselves and their


loved ones healthy.
They go to the doctor when
they need to, and when they
can afford it, and they follow the
doctor's instructions as best as
they can. If they have medical
insurance, they rely on it like a life
preserver in a treacherous sea.
If they don't have coverage, they
go somewhere they can afford the
charges. Sometimes all they can
afford are no charges at all.
And who pays the difference
between what they can afford
and the true cost of health care?
The taxpayer, people who live in
faraway big cities and small towns
across the nation, in places like
Franklin County.
With this backdrop in mind,
it is important for county
commissioners to remember
some basic principles as they
approach the upcoming July 21
afternoon workshop on health
care delivery in Carrabelle.
This is not a vast challenge,
like nationwide health care
reform, that is out of everyone's
hands. This is a challenge
squarely on the shoulders of this
county's elected officials, those
five commissioners elected to
spend wisely each and every
nickel of taxpayers' money. And
on those constitutional officers
who have an obligation to provide
constructive advice when it
comes to gathering, collecting and
spending those dollars.
This is a challenge squarely
on the plate of this county's
appointed health leaders, those
who run the health department
and the Weems Memorial Hospital
system, whether it's preventive
care, medical treatment or


would be fine and this editorial
could end right here with a giant
sigh of relief.
But such is not entirely the
case. Both the health department
practice and Weems Clinic
East are heavily dependent on
public-sector taxpayer support
for survival. The Carrabelle
annex's primary care practice
offers a sliding scale for patients
who can't otherwise afford to
see a medical professional. Plus
taxpayer money, by way of a
county subsidy to the state-funded
health department, is what keeps
that afloat.
In the case ofWeems Clinic
East, county sales taxes enable
that facility to break even and
provide the care patients depend
on. And on the horizon is a million-
dollar project to build an Urgent
Care Clinic in Carrabelle, based
on a promise made in order to
secure passage of that very sales
tax.
With this in mind, we believe
it is important that county
commissioners, health care
officials and medical providers
give careful consideration to Clerk
of Courts Marcia Johnson's call
for a cost-effective solution to
Carrabelle's health care needs.
No one wants to deny Carrabelle
the medical care it needs and
deserves. The commissioners on
the eastern end of the county are
right to defend that care.
But there are serious questions
about taxpayer dollars. In this
time of recession, does it still
make sense to hand over a million
dollars to contractors to build a
brand-new urgent care center,
when a retrofit of the existing


annex might work as well for less
money? Especially since further
shrinkage of state dollars to the
health department will only free
up more available space at the
annex, and even threaten to close
it altogether?
Does it make sense for
taxpayers to continue to
subsidize two medical practices
in Carrabelle, when a reasonable
collaboration between Weems
and the health department could
result in more expanded and cost-
effective care for everyone?
Does it make sense for Weems
and the health department to
continue to conflict over scarce
health care dollars? Isn't it
reasonable to expect that the two
publicly-supported health care
entities will work together even
more closely as a united force
to meet the county's medical
needs, from Alligator Point to
Apalachicola?
We don't have all the answers;
no one does. It's going to take
everyone working hard to hash
this out. And both the health
department and Weems are to be
congratulated for their success in
delivering care.
But we believe that this
success has come because of a
willingness by taxpayers to pony
up the funds needed to cover
costs. These taxpayers must be
listened to when it comes time to
reach a cost-effective conclusion.
Commissioner Noah Lockley
was right when he said "Some
of these issues can be worked
out, but we have to sit down and
negotiate." Now is the time. We
need health care reform, Franklin
County style.


emergency response.
This is a challenge squarely on
the charts of this county's medical
professionals, who deliver the
services we all depend on, to keep
us and our loved ones healthy.
We're all in this together,
which is why it's crucial we
embrace common assumptions
when it comes to finding answers
for funding health care for
Carrabelle and the eastern end
of the county.
Over the past five years, the
county has been able to dig its
way out of a troubling health care
crisis of its own, by putting Weems
and the ambulance service on
solid financial footing with the
help of a one-cent sales tax. No
one threw up their hands and
said "let the hospital die," or let
EmergyStat's sudden departure
destroy the ambulance service.
Everyone pitched in, reached into
their pockets and put the ship on
an even keel.
The deck of that ship that
serves Carrabelle is blessed
to have several able health
care providers meeting the
community's health care needs.
Dana Whaley, an advanced
registered nurse practitioner at
the county health department's
annex, is a valuable primary
care asset, just as are Dr. Nancy
Chorba and Dr. Timothy West at
Weems Clinic East.
From all indications, patients
like these health care options
available in the Carrabelle area,
and that is how it should be. If
both offices were just another
example of private-sector health
care providers successfully
meeting patients' needs, then all

bonfires out of driftwood,
sang old songs, told lies
and smooched behind
the sand dunes. If we
were lucky, we got to
stay at the beach for a
few nights in a cottage
with no air-conditioning,
television or telephone.
We played cards and

St. Vincent Island National

This week the U.S. Fish and

of open house meetings to seek
public input on the management
of St. Vincent Island. The
Franklin County meeting will be
at the A alachicola Community
Building (City Hall), 1 Bay Ave.,
on Thursday, July 16, from 6-
9 p.m., with a presentation at
6:45 p.m.
The Fish and Wildlife Service
is developing a Comprehensive

refuge over the next 15 years.
The purpose of the meetings is

We slept on sagging
mattresses on the screened
porch and pulled a tarp or old
shower curtain over our heads
if the rain started blowing in. We
went out in the mornings to seine
for bait fish and check the crab
traps. We spent the afternoons
picking crabs, working on supper
or napping. I imagine there was
also some reading going on, but
no news or current events. We
had everything we needed or
wanted.
My family, like many, never
owned a beach house; however,
we were frequent guests of those
more fortunate. Even a day trip
with a home base at a friend's
cottage was especially fine.
I particularly remember the


discoveries, I suppose that is all
true, but, honey, if they only knew.
Before there were beach
state parks and hundreds of
single-family homes, there were
miles of pristine beach. We didn't
need a permit to drive along the
shoreline, and homemade beach
buggies took us to the end of
Cape San Blas and to East Pass
on St. George Island. We didn't
think it had form to drive over
sand dunes or pick sea oats.
There were so few of us that the
impact was negligible, and the
beach quickly recovered. Or so
we thought.
Swimming and sunning
were secondary to crabbing,

mullet roasts of my childhood,
organized by my parent's
generation, and held at Indian
Pass Beach or farther west on
the cape. In latter days, they
became once-a-summer events,
but there was a time when they
were commonplace. The grown-
ups were able to mobilize on
short notice, and everyone knew


what to contribute. Specific
locations at the beach varied
somewhat, depending on how the
cape's shifting shoreline affected
transportation.
Several of the men would
go out early in a boat to catch
mullet. There was an abundance.

Editor's Note: Early last
week, the school district sought
input on a proposal from the
Franklin County Schools
Code of Conduct Committee
regarding school uniforms.
The committee planned to
recommend the school board U
approve a change that khakci, GU
black or blue pants, shorts or COLUI
skirts (no jeans) be added to Zachar
the school uniform for the 2009-
210 school yea?
If approved, the proposal would
have added to the existing uniform
policy, which already specifies that
pants and shorts must be worn with a
belt, and that shorts and skirts must not
be more than 3 inches above the knee.
Principal George Oehlert said he
received a lot offeedback from parents
regarding the proposal.
"This is really a 'dead issue' now.
There is no change to the dress code
for the 2009/2010 school year" he
told Zachary Jones in an e-mail last


week. "The Code of Conduct
committee was considering
making the recommendation
to change the dress code,
and the proposal was to get
student and parent feedback
to the proposed changes.
Based on the response from
both students and parents, the
committee listened, thus no
changes or additions to the

dress code."
When I read the school proposal for
full uniform, I almost lost my mind. It's
bad enough that we are surrounded by
gates like we are in prison at the school.
My thoughts are just like everyone else
who was against the full uniform. Some
said "ridiculous." I said "outrageous."
Some parents can hardly afford
school shirts for their child whenever
they need new ones, and some are just
tired of paying for school shirts over and
over again. Now, adding a full uniform to
their stress is just foolish and upsetting.

JONES from pagle A4

I Googled school uniform
policies, and I read that a school
uniform gives students decency,
which is good, and that it helps
students perform better in school.
I'm not a rocket scientist, but by
wearing school uniform, how can
that help you perform better?
It's either you have it, or you are
developing it.
I also read that some schools
provide uniforms for those who
can't afford them, which I thought
was excellent, but I know that
our school is not willing to do


that because they have their own
financial problems and can't afford
to give away uniforms just like
that.
This is what some parents had
to say: "There are parents that
are struggling to pay for school
shirts, and to add bottoms is totally
outrageous, and this is a public
school, not a reformatory school,"
Mary Sewell said.
Carol Barfield said, "In these
economic times, parents are just
not able to afford this. The school
board needs to look at their own


finances and see how they are just
barely staying afloat, and then
maybe they will have compassion
on parents in this rural area."
On the other hand, some
agreed with the proposal, for
example, "I think the change in
the dress code for next year is a
good idea," Christina Pearson said.
"My son attended a school in Bay
County where the dress code was
school shirts with khaki pants or
shorts for the boys, and he had
no problem with that. In fact, he
preferred to wear khakis instead of


the jeans simply because khaki is
more relaxing.
"I personally like the idea
because I feel it teaches our
children to have respect and
decency for themselves and for
the school that they attend. I know
some are against it, but they have
a right to their own opinion and
choice. Either way, I really don't
have a problem with the changes,"
she said.
Zachary Jones is working
this summer as an intern at the
Apalachicola-Carrabelle T~imes.


in full below.
"St. Vincent National
Wildlife Refuge presents
one of the greatest
biological opportunities
for research in the
southeastern United
States because it is an
island with limited human
access. This also makes
it one of the few places
in the southeastern
United States where
conservation of sensitive
species can be maintained
and controlled on an
ongoing basis (i.e., the red
wolves, etc.).
Some of the
herpetological
conservation projects that
might be considered for
the St. Vincent 15-year
management plan, the
CCP: include:
1. Re-introduction
of Eastern Indigo
Snakes (Drymarchon
couperi). While the first
attempt in the 1980s
was not successful, new
information indicates that
a different approach and/
or methodology might
show success. If this can
be funded, I am ready to
do it,
2. A study of the
Eastern Diamondback
Rattlesnake (Crotalus
adamanteus) on the island
would be useful; these
reptiles will probably
become extinct on the
mainland of Florida. Thus,
the St. Vincent island
population may become
the last of these creatures
in the region.
3. A study of the
population dynamics
and status of the state-
protected Gopher
Tortoises (Gopherus
polyphemus) on the
island would be of great
benefit in increasing


these chelonians.
4. A study of the status
of the Diamondback
Terrapin (Malaclemys
terrapin) on the island
would be of great
benefit in increasing
our knowledge about
these chelonians; they
live in such a narrow
environment along the
Atlantic and Gulf coasts,
and their conservation
status is uncertain,
5. A study of the Salt
Marsh Snake (Nerodia
clarkii) on the island
would be useful in
preparing a contingency
conservation plan for
them. Populations
elsewhere in Florida are
federally protected.
6. Dr. Emily Moriarty
Lemmon at Florida State
University has expressed
an interest in having her
students do field research
on the island. Most of the
students would work with
amphibians.
7. Amphibians
need fresh water. Any
management plans or
upgrades that could
increase the freshwater
acreage on the wildlife
refuge would be very
helpful. Again, many
amphibian populations
may be decimated or go
extinct on the mainland;
St. Vincent might become
the last refuge for some of
them.
8. A better system of
roads might be adopted
for the island, possibly
one with fewer roads
than at present, but also
more strategically located
than the current ones.
However, I am thinking
in terms of biological
research; there may
be other perfectly valid
reasons for the current


safety, maintenance, fire
control) .
9. Upgrading and
enlarging the cabin (on
the island) to create
a small field research
station might be a good
idea; it would attract more
biologists to do research
on the island. I suspect
the cabin would lend itself
well to more modern
means of generating heat
and electricity such as
wind and solar.
10. Having a
permanent contract
with St. Vincent Shuttle
Service to transport
authorized field biologists
to the wildlife refuge
would be useful, and
would relieve having to
take folks over in the
barge. The preferred work
times of researchers often
are not in synch with the
barge schedule.
11. Small all-color
booklets covering the
wildlife of St. Vincent,
sponsored and paid for by
USFWS and distributed
to visitors gratis, would
build a strong sense of
ownership with the public.
There is nothing more
exciting than seeing a
living creature in the wild
and being able to identify
it with a handy booklet
given to you by USFWS.
St. Vincent National
Wildlife Refuge is a gem in
the federal refuge system
and has the potential to
play a more significant
role in conserving the
biological diversity of
the southeastern United
States. The above points
are but a few of the many
ideas that passed through
my mind. Please feel free
to share this information
with anyone."

than a ledge, during low

He said at least one boat
trailer had been damaged
when it jammed on the con-
crete slab when it was pull-
ing a boat out of the water.
"It got hung up on the end of
ramp," he said. "It's a drop-
off and the tires dropped off,
and when they started pull-
ing it out they couldn't and it
was hung up."
Putnal said the problem
is a common one, and often
results when repeated boat
traffic and propeller action
blows away sea bottom that
used to make for a smooth
entrance and exit. "When
they dug the hole out, they
didn't build it level with the
bottom of the water," he said
He recommended the
placement of "small rocks
about the size of a fist," of the
type the state uses them in
low-water crossings."That's
probably what we're going
to have to do over there,"
he said. "The problem is
only with low tide. It's noth-
ing new; it's just a common
thing that happened."

Appraisal underway
*
10f adjacent lots
To meet the immediate
need for more parking, and
the long-term goal of ex-


handed waterfront access,
county officials hope to ex-
tend the site by gradually
obtaining nine more lots
that extend east to U.S. 98
along the south side of U.S.
98.
Mark Curenton, the as-
sistant county planner, said
the first piece of land is a
small triangle, with water-
front access but no road-
side frontage, that as of last
November, was owned by
Richard Spohrer, of Eureka
Springs, Ark. The property
appraiser's office assesses
its value at $85,850.
Curenton said he was
not sure of the ownership
status of the parcel, which
Spohrer bought four years
ago for $340,000.
The next section of
property heading east is
the site of the former Al-
len Brothers Seafood. The
first three lots are owned
by Aquatic Land Develop-
ment Inc., which includes
investors Jeff and Dona
Branch, and Art and Ja-
net Riccard, of Port St.
Joe. These lots encompass
150 feet of road and water
frontage, and extend about
120 feet from the road out
to the water.
According to the prop-
erty appraiser's office,
these lots were bought for


$725,000 four years ago.
They are currently as-
sessed at about $175,000,
with a little more than
$100,000 in land and the
rest in buildings.
Curenton said Tallahas-
see appraiser Paul Hyatt is
working on an appraisal of
those lots for the county.
The next two lots, which
include 113 feet along the
road and an irregularly
shaped waterfront, are
owned by investors, Art and
Janet Riccard, Paul Lowe
and Max Maddox, of Port
St. Joe. These lots sold four
years ago for $730,000, and
arecurrentlyassessedata
little less than $123,000.
Last November, the
county had hoped to secure
$1.7 million from the state's
Stan Mayfield Working Wa-
terfront grant program to
buy the five lots. But state
legislators did not fund the
program, and the grant
was not approved.
Jacket said she would
like to see the commission
draw on unspent monies
in the capital outlay fund
that are earmarked for
land purchases to begin
expanding the Eastpoint
site. During this past year
the commissioners dreW
on capital outlay monies to
buy the Lombardi property


in the Two-Mile area west
of Apalachicola, which has
since been transformed
into a seafood landing wa-
terfront site.
The next lot is property
owned by Sandra Fields,
of Dearborn, Mich., with
an assessed value of about
$240,000. Fields has told
the county she is willing to
lease the land for five years,
with an option to renew for
another five years, but is
not interested in selling at
present, Curenton said.
The last piece of the
proposed project would
be a property owned by
Eastpoint'sNoahGoodson,
assessed at about $27,000.

According to a NOAA
press release, El Niflo's
impacts on the weather
are complicated but it fre-
quently suppresses hurri-
cane activity in the Gulf of
Mexico because prevailing
winds from the northwest
create a shear. This pre-
vents tropical systems from
remaining stationary over
warm waters of the Gulf and
strengthening into hurri-
canes. The prevailing winds
can also increase precipi-
tation over parts of North
America, especially in win-
ter, and decrease the prob-
ability of Florida wildfires.
It is believed El Nino
may have contributed to the
1993 Mississippi and 1995
California floods as well as
drought conditions in South
America, Africa and Austra-
lia during the same period.
Although the specific ef-
fects of El Nino are difficult
to predict, this event could
also break the drought that
has crippled farmers in In-
dia for several years.
Jamski said the El Nino
is partly responsible for in-
creased rain this spring in
the Panhandle. He said a
series of four troughs mov-
ing from the northwest over
the Gulf has promoted the
recent thunderstorms that
have brought much needed
rain to northwest Florida.
So far this year, 24.36
inches of rain have fallen on
Apalachicola, only about a
half-inch below the average
over a 100-year period. This
time last year, the area had
received only 18.5 inches of
rain; 6.5 inches below the
norm.
The last week of March
and first week of April were
particularly wet with soak-
ing rains and thunderstorms
across most of Georgia, Ala-
bama, and North Florida. A
large swath of the Florida
Panhandle, South Alabama,
and South Georgia received
over 12 inches with a greater
area seeing over six inches.
This resulted in flooding of
low-lying or poorly-drained
areas, and record or near-re-
cord floods on some Georgia
and North Florida Rivers.
Jamski said he expects
to see a continued influ-
ence from El Nino at least
through the fall but that the
effects of El Nino usually
last two to three years.

Thanks to a trio of volun-
teers led by an enthusiastic
retiree, Franklin County
High School is planning
to field two robust soccer
teams this fall.
CoachDavidCox,65,who
helped start the soccer pro-
gram last season, is gearing
up to have both a boys and
girls squad. He has brought
in two volunteer coaches,
and he's already drafted a
schedule

as goalkeeper coach. He
brings experience gained in
Mobile, Ala. where his son,

kehe fpo t ewatstthe
up. His other son, Michael,
playedontheteamthatwon
the state championship.
Serving as the other as-
sistant will be longtime lo-
cal soccer enthusiast Joe
Shields, who has coached
recreational youth soccer
for eight years. Shields, a
Carrabelle resident, is on
the board of directors for
the Gulf/Franklin counties'
Co-Ed recreational youth
soccer league and handles
registration, finding coach-
es, sponsors and putting


teams together for Franklin
County'sinvolvementinthe
aforementioned league.
. "As Franklin County's
interest in soccer contin-
ues, I foresee the co-ed ree
ls ue as adna Inpg a tehse
high school level," he said.
Shields' daughter, Jessi-
ca, is one of a growing num-
her of young people who
have already expressed in-
terest in this year's season.
Cox said at least two
dozen students have signed
up to play, and he expects
even more stepped-up
enthusiasm when school
starts next month. Each
team must have at least a
12-player roster. The team
will practice on the baseball
field, nodntth n lo I e

Cox's 30-year interest in
soccer was also prompted
by his own family's involve-
ment. When his children
were at Powell High School
in Knoxville, he coached for
five years, back when the
sport was new in America
and spreading across the
country.

mer who retired after 19
years from Levi Strauss,

program has already sold

Several items discussed
at Weems Memorial Hospi-
tal's monthly board meet-
ing June 25 showed the re-
lationship between Weems
and Tallahassee Memorial
Healthcare continues to
strengthen.
TMH generally sends a
representative to Weems'
board meetings, and on
June 25, it was Cindy Blair,
vice president of organi-
zational improvement and
planning. Blair was com-
ing off a recent run of good
news for TMH in the area
of improvement.
On June 15, President
Obama referred to TMH
as "an island of excel-
lence" in his speech to the
American Medical Asso-
ciation. Obama cited TMH
for reducing its mortality
rate by 31 percent in a four-
year period. Blair said the
hospital's participation in
a pilot project "Pursuing
Perfection," sponsored by
the Institute for Healthcare

dmp ve led he re-
by the institute was the ba-
sis for the president's com-
ments, Blair said.

recS lyno Isoa TnMH
place award for improve-
ment from the nationally
recognized Thomson Re-
uters group and was within
the past month given an
"outstanding" rating by the
national accrediting group
Joint Accrediting Council
for H pi d han ea

tions reflect TMH's strate-
8 ic use of data. She offered
her help to the board and


staff of Weems in the col-
lecting and use of data in
shaping strategic plans for
improvement. In addition,
she shared with the board
some data she had collect-
ed about Franklin County
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Health. According
to one comprehensive as-
sessment, Franklin County
ranked in the most favor-
able state quartile when it
comes to "prostate cancer
age-adjusted incidence
rate" and the number of
premature births. On the
Other hand, the same as-
sessment shows Franklin
County in the least favor-
able state quartile when
measuring "adults with


any type of insurance cov-
erage" and the number of
births to teens 15-19.
Growing ties with TMH
also were cited when Dr.
Steve Miniat, president of
Weems Medical Staff, told
the board two Tallahas-
see Neurological Center
physicians and the head of
TMH's NeuroScience Cen-
ter visited the latest meet-
ing of the Weems Medical
Staff. Miniat said the coop-
eration growing between
the two groups will result in
better services for county
patients and compliment-
ed the board for "setting a
positive tone at the hospi-
tal, which has reached the
medical staff."

THE


The American Cancer
Society says this about
cancer survivors and blood
and organ donation:
Many cancer survivors
are keenly aware of the val-
ue of good health and want
to help others by donating
their blood or body organs.
However, for the safety of
blood or organ recipients,
centers may restrict do-
nations from people diag-
nosed or with a history of
certain cancers.
Some people who have
had cancer are not allowed
to donate blood for a cer-
tain length of time after
treatment. This is done
partly to protect the donor,
but it may also add an ex-
tra margin of safety for the
person who receives the
blood. If you aren't sure if
you are well enough to give
blood, talk with your doctor
before you donate.
While cancer has very
rarely been transmitted
through transplants of
solid organs such as kid-
neys, cancer due to blood
transfusion has not been
reported in the medical lit-
erature. The chance of get-
ting cancer from a blood
transfusion is extremely
small. Even if cancer cells
were present in donated
blood, the immune system
of the person getting the
blood would destroy them.
A possible exception might
be in transfusion recipients
with weakened immune
systems.
Different blood collec-
tion centers may have


slightly different stan-
dards for allowing cancer
survivors to donate. The
American Red Cross al-
lows most people who have
had cancer to donate if the
cancer was treated at least
1 to 5 years ago and has not
come back.
You cannot donate blood
if you are being treated
for cancer; your cancer
is spreading or has come
back; you have had leuke-
mia or lymphoma as an
adult or if you have ever
had Kaposi's sarcoma.
People who had leuke-
mia or lymphoma as chil-
dren are often allowed to
donate after 10 years of be-
ing cancer-free.
Many cancer survivors
also wish to help people by
becoming organ donors.
There is always a pressing
need for organ donation.
The risk of passing on can-
cer to an organ recipient is
very small, but there have
been some rare reports in
the medical literature of
this happening. The risk
may be higher for organ
transplants than blood
transfusions because or-
gan recipients are given
drugs to suppress their
immune systems to help
prevent rejection of the
transplant.
For many people, corne-
al donation is another way
to offer help to others after
they pass away. Almost all
people with cancer (except
those with certain blood or
eye cancers) can donate
their corneas.

The county commission has
instructed Hubert Chipman,
superintendent of public works,
to lend two two-way radios to
the volunteer fire department
on Alligator Point. The radios
will be used in the event of an
emergency where ordinary
communications are disrupted.


Chapman said the radios,
which cost about $500 each,
were no longer in use by his
department. The Alligator
Point department will assume
responsibility for any fees
associated with the use of the
radios.

Parking changes on
Tallahassee Street
The Carrabelle commission
has ordered changes to the
parking arrangement on
Tallahassee Street. The west
side of the street between the
Carrabelle Hotel and the Funky


Oyster Shell will become a no-
parking zone.
The commission ordered
signs to be installed and
lines painted on the street to
designate the restricted area.
Parking still will be available on
the east side of the street.
City Planner Courtney
Millender said the change
was ordered because of the
heavy traffic into and out of the
IRmky Oyster Shell on weekend
nights. She said the city was
concerned someone would be
struck by a car while emerging
to cross the street between two
parked vehicles.

Failure to obey a stop sign
caused a two-car accident Friday
evening in Carrabelle.
According to the report filed by
Florida Highway Patrol Crash In-
vestigator Cpl. M.S. Cross, a 2004
four-door Hyundai was traveling
north on Southeast 12th Street in
Carrabelle about 8:20 p.m. when it
failed to stop at the intersection at
U.S. Highway 98.
The driver, Sherry Jean
Bearden, 47, of Chunchula, Ala.,
drove into the path of a 2000 Subaru
station wagon driven by Donald W.
Rogers, 47, of Crawfordville.
The Subaru struck the front right
side of Bearden's vehicle, which
caused it to rotate clockwise and
end up facing east on the north side


of 98. The Subaru ended up facing
west on the north shoulder of 98.
Bearden and her passenger,
Raymond A. Herrera, 46, of Carra-
belle, suffered serious injuries and
were taken to Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital. Both had been wear-
ing their seatbelts.
Also taken to TMH was Deo-
na Crowe, 35, of Crawfordville,
a passenger in the Subaru. Rog-
ers suffered minor injuries. Both
individuals were wearing their
seatbelts.
Alcohol is believed to be a factor
in Bearden's driving.
FHP was assisted at the scene
by sheriff's deputies, Carrabelle
police, county emergency manage-
ment service and first responders.
