Franklin County will have
1,000 doses of vaccination for the
novel H1N1 flu virus, commonly
known as the swine flu, by Octo-
her.
Dr. Gene Charbonneau, medi-
cal director for the county health
department, said the depart-


ment is gearing up for a vaccina-
tion campaign in late September
or early October. That is consid-
ered the soonest that the five
pharmaceutical companies who
make the vaccine for the US will
have completed production and
testing.
Charbonneau and Wesley
Tice, the health department's
administrator, attended a medi-


cal exercise in Orlando last
week, where they were briefed
on plans to confront the pan-
demic flu in the Sunshine State.
Charbonneau said the vac-
cine won't cost people anything,
and will be administered in two
phases, an initial set of immuni-
zations followed by a second set
28 days later.
"We're looking at 1,000 doses


on the first go-around and then
as we need it," he said. "As we
see demand increase or de-
crease, we have up to 5,000 that
can be ordered."
Charbonneau said the priori-
ties for vaccination are the oppo-
site of what is usually the case,
when the oldest people are first
to be vaccinated. Health experts
theorize that the elderly have


likely picked up immunity to the
virus over the years.
"This is kind of reverse this
time," said Charbonneau. "The
group that usually doesn't get it
will get this one."
Seniors over age 65, who have
an underlying medical condition,
will be targeted, as their illness

After haggling over the
rate of increase, county
commissioners tabled a
request to raise Municipal
Services Benefit Units in
order to seek more public
input on the matter.
At the Aug 4 meeting,
Steve Fling, Alligator Point
fire chief, gave a presenta-
tion explaining the Frank-
lin County Firefighters
Association's request for
increases to the Munici-
pal Services Benefit Units
(MSBU) increases.
The association wants
an across-the-board in-
crease in assessments. The
most controversial part of
their request is that own-
ers of undeveloped land
would pay, for the first time,
an assessment.
St. George Island Fire
Chief Jay Abbott, president
of the Association, said 80
to 90 percent of fire calls
are to brush fires on un-
developed parcels, usually
triggered by lightning, fire-

SPECIAL TO THE TIMES


A rendering shows the proposed urgent care clinic in Carrabelle.


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

Weems Memorial Hospital
CEO Chuck Colvert is a man
looking in two different direc-
tions these days.
To the east is beckoning the
first major building expansion
by Weems in years, the con-
struction of a new urgent care
clinic in Carrabelle expected to
cost around $1 million to build,
and possibly more, and targeted
to serve a portion of the county
long in need of expanded medi-
cal services.
To the west looms some ma-
jor head-on competition, the
construction of a state-of-the-art
hospital in Gulf County affiliated
with Pensacola's Sacred Heart
Health System and certain to
attract a fair share of Franklin
County patients.
And amidst it all, Colvert is
overseeing the largest health
care provider in a county where
a large and growing chunk of all
patients are without health in-
surance, and unable to pay the
cost of their care.
With collections running only
about one-third of the $16.1 mil-
lion in annual patient billings,
the county expects Weems Me-
morial Hospital next year to net
about $5.9 million in revenue,
more than a half-million dollars
less than the nearly $6.5 million
annual cost of operating the fa-
cility
Keeping the Apalachicola
facility in the black, and funding
the upcoming construction of an
urgent care clinic in Carrabelle,
continues to depend on the
more than $1 million in sales tax
revenue the hospital receives
each year.
"The biggest concern this
year is we're going to have com-
petition. I'm concerned we're

likely to run into a deficit when
Sacred Heart opens up," said
Colvert. The 25-bed Gulf County
hospital, affiliated with Ascen-
sion Health, the nation's largest
Catholic and largest nonprofit
health system, is slated to open
in March.
"I'm concerned next year we
may be talking about deficits at
the hospital," said Colvert. "The
hospital is in a precarious posi-
tion, particularly with Sacred
Heart opening. Small, rural hos-
pitals are in a precarious posi-
tion."
Last year Weems struck up
an affiliation with Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, and has
been gradually strengthening
ties with the facility, including
formulating plans to rotate in
specialists from Leon County to


see patients in Franklin County.
"I'd hate to do battle with
Sacred Heart if TMH wasn't on
our side," Colvert told commis-
sioners. "We don't know what
Sacred Heart is going to do. It's
going to depend on doctors.
"I still believe you're going
to have a lot of people going to
Sacred Heart going to our hos-
pital," he said. "I just don't know
what the effect will be the first
year."

Special to the Times
Lightning ignited a fire,
on Wednesday afternoon,
Aug. 5 that burned 230
acres on the east end of
Little St. George Island.
The Apalachicola Na-
tional Estuarine Research
Reserve, which manages
the island, has a policy of
letting natural fires burn
whenever they don't threat-
en people or property, since
fire is a natural process
and an important part of
the coastal ecosystem.
ANERR officials as-


sessed the situation and de-
cided to monitor and man-
age this fire and let it burn.
The fire continued to
burn Wednesday into the
evening and Thursday,
mostly burning slowly
through the far eastern end
of the island, an area that
didn't burn with the rest
of the island during light-
ning-ignited fires in 1999
and 2007.
By 8p.m. Thursday, Aug.
6 the fire had burned to the
far eastern end of of the is-
land and was moving very

SOLID WASTE: 2.3

percent decrease
Van Johnson, director of
the solid waste department,
submitted a budget that
dropped 2.3 percent, from
$934,909 to $913,398. He also
shared data that indicated
that the consolidated solid
waste grant would drop
71.6 percent next year, from
$277,316 to $78,787, which
would mean there would be
no capital outlay next year.
Johnson said next year's
budget includes cutting
costs by cancelling cell

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

The county commis-
sion has agreed to provide
$50,000 in funding next year
to the Franklin County Hu-
mane Society, the same lev-
el as this past budget year.
The commissioners
tentatively approved the
expenditure at their July
23 budget workshop, after
listening to an appeal from
Susan Kearney, president
of the society.
She said the animal shel-
ter at 244 State Route 65 in
Eastpoint has seen a 48
percent drop in donations
over the past year, and now
employs three part-time
and one full-time staffer to
handle the shelter.
Kearney said the soci-
ety has been unable to off-
set the drop in donations
because there are no big
employers in the county,
like PetSmart, to turn to for
help.
She said the society
has looked into applying
for grants, but is often sty-


mied because of the three
main questions each grant
provider considers before
making any awards. These
are whether there is a li-
censure law and a leash
law, and whether there is a
low-cost spay and neutering
option in the community.
The county has no ani-
mal licensure law and the
society must pay about
$75 to have a cat spayed or
neutered in the county. Al-
though there is no county-
wide law requiring pets be
kept on le ashes, there are
specific ordinances which
can require pets be main-
tained under their owner's
control, such as on the
beaches.
Allan Feifer, speaking
on behalf of the Concerned
Citizens of Franklin County,
said the county should con-
sider instituting a fee for
rabies shots, and animal li-
cense fees, as a way of gen-
erating revenue.
In an earlier discussion
over funding for the animal
control department, Van
Johnson, director of ani-


:-I


mal control, said the county
might want to raise the fees
for impoundment to help
cover department expendi-
tures.
Commissioner Bevin
Putnal said that while say-
ings on license fees could
be tailored to fit owners
with multiple animals, he
expected that those with
hunting dogs would oppose
such a plan.
"I guarantee you'd have
50 dog hunters here," he
said. "They know how to
pitch a fit."
Johnson submitted a
budget that increased from
$140,082 to $142,200, or 1.51
percent for animal control.
He said overtime had
been eliminated in the
budget, with the increase
due to higher mandatory
retirement costs. Officers
have often worked on their
days off to handle calls, as
there is no regular staffing
outside of the five-day work
week, he said.
"Dogs do bite on the
weekend," Johnson said.
"In my heart I want to re-


spond to it but I have no
way to pay for it. I have em-
ployees who will do theirjob
without compensation."
Commissioners Noah
Lockley and Cheryl Sand-
ers suggested that over-
time funding be restored.
Johnson rejected the
idea of shifting to four 10-
hour work days to save on
funds, noting such a plan
would make it even more
difficult for the two full-time
officers to adequately serve
the county.
He said shifting the ani-
mal control responsibilities
to the sheriff's office, an
idea the sheriff has reject-
ed, continues to pose prob-
lems on the weekend, since
the sheriff's office has no
way to impound animals.
The commissioners ap-
proved the budget for ani-
mal control, as well as fund-
ing for the humane society.
"We're known as a dog-
friendly county, and I would
like for us to continue to
adopt these animals out,"
said Kearney.

insurance.
The commissioners
discusses raising tipping
fees although no action
was taken. "You guys over
the years have lowered the
rate," Johnson said, not-
ing that there has been no
raise in the tipping fees in
12 years.
Johnson provided a de-
tailed analysis of the cost
and revenue associated
with the landfill. Currently,
the $45 per ton charge for
white goods and construc-
tion waste, and the $22.50
fee forward trash, generates
charges of about $521,000,
based on last year's data.
Johnson noted that any
hike in tipping fees, or re-


duction of amnesty days,
could lead to further ex-
penses of picking up trash
along the roadside.

meant a big hike in operat-

ed that $526,895 in sales tax
rciopt would go tosubsi-
An equal amount will go
towards construction of a
new urgent care clinic in
Carrabelle which, coupled
with about $1.2 million from
past collections, will mean
about $1.7 million will be
available for the project as
well as other renovation ex-
penses.
"The tax is what makes
this hospital grow," said
Colvert.
Commissioner Pinki
Jackel questioned the hos-
pital CEO regarding the
extent of the information
he had provided. She noted
that there was no break-
down of salaries, no de-
tailed information on spe-
cific expenditures, and that
it was difficult to read.
"There's nothing for us
to compare what happened
last year," she said. "I re-
ally need that information
to be able to make that de-
cision."
Commissioner Cheryl
Sanders asked about how
much money was being
kept in reserve in the event
of an emergency. According
to the operational budget,
and by law, the hospital has
set aside 3 percent of total
collections, or $313,140.
"If something happens,
we adjust," said Colvert.
He cited a number of
bright spots at Weems,
including an increase in
emergency room traffic of
percent over the previous
year. In addition, there is a
new mammography facil-
ity, the only one in Frank-
lin and Gulf counties, and
Apalachicola cardiologist


Dr. Shezad Sanaullah has
begun doing outpatient
procedures altitltfacil m .

the emergency room are
expected to run about $9.5
million next year, more
than inpatient and outpa-
tient revenue combined.
Outpatient billings will run
about $4.3 million, and in-
patient billings about $2.3
million. Colvert said the av-
erage daily inpatient cen-
sus at the hospital is eight
patients.
The hospital's revenues
are boosted by about $1.25
million in government
payments earmarked for
hospitals that handle a dis-
proportionate share of low-
income patients.
Colvert said the hos-
pital uses three different
collection agencies to try
to boost the amount of its
billings that get paid. In ad-
dition, he said Weems pays
a 3 percent fee to the staff
leasing company as part of
an organizational structure
that enables it to remain a
county-owned entity but
not part of the county em-
ployee pool.
He said he is in talks
with TMH to form a spinoff
corporation that could elim-
inate the need for a staff
leasing company. "They're
very anxious to work with
us on it," Colvert said.
Commissioner Bevin
Putnal praised the work of
Weems staff and said he
has seen an improvement
in morale at the hospital.

Ambulance subsidy
FURS $375,000
Colvert secured a
$375,000 annual subsidy,


A groundbreaking
ceremony at the future
site of the Weems Medi-
cal Center East Urgent
Care Clinic will take
place Thursday, Aug. 27
at 11 a.m.
The future site is next
to the Franklin County
Health Department An-
nex on NE 5th Street in
Carrabelle.
The architectural
firm designing the facil-
ity is Clemons, Ruther-
ford & Associates, Inc. of
Tallahassee. The Weems
board has reviewed
plans for a one-story
structure that is over
5,000 square feet, are in
the process of whittling
it down.
"There are no final
plans yet, we are still
a work in progress. We
want it to be between
in the 3,000 to mid-4,000
square foot range," said
Gayle Dodds, board
chairman. "Our premise
was we can build this
without debt and we can,
but not the higher up the
square footage goes."


same as this year, to cover
operating expenses for the
ambulance service.
This subsidy makes up
the shortfall between net
patient service revenue of
$358,000, and total operat-
ing expenses of $733,000.
At least three-fourths of the
operating revenue, or more
than $564,000, goes to sala-
ries and benefits.


Weems Memorial
Hospital CEO Chuck
Colvert said building
costs are about $200
per square foot. By July
2009, the sales tax, which
promised a new clinic in
Carrabelle before it was
passed by voters in 2007,
had produced $859,363
so far in capital collec-
tions for the clinic's con-
struction.
"We would hope we
could do it for some-
where around $1 or $1.2
million," said Colvert.
The one-story clinic
will feature a section for
primary/urgent care on
one side and spaces for
subspecialty physicians
rotating to Franklin
County from Tallahas-
see Memorial Health-
care, with which Weems
is affiliated. A middle
pod area will house
laboratory and radiol-
ogy equipment servicing
both sides.
The primary care
component would en-
able physicians to see
patients in their office,


Colvert noted that the
county has better service,
and is paying less out per
year, than when it contract-
ed with Emergystat with a
subsidy of $42,000 a month,
or $504,000 per year.
The ambulance service
anticipates 1,625 runs next
year, a growth of about 7
percent over this past year,
Colvert said.


just as Drs. Nancy Chor-
ba and Timothy West
do currently at the Car-
rabelle Municipal Com-
plex.
Dr. James Stockwell,
a TMH gastroenterolo-
gist slated to soon be-
gin seeing patients at
Weems hospital, is an
example of the type of
specialists who might
rotate down here.
Colvert said Weems
has already begun ad-
ministering chemother-
apy in Apalachicola, and
would like to create a
kidney dialysis option as
well.
"We want to serve
those patients who now
have to travel frequent-
ly," he said. "This is all in
the talking stage. We're
open to an outreach pro-
gram for doctors coming
down here and seeing
patients."
Once completed,
which could be as early
as summer 2010, the
new urgent care clinic
would be open either 10

Before Disney
World, I'm talking d
the Fifties and ,
Sixties here, i
Florida's attractions
were hardly
destination points
for international
tourists. RE
The Interstate AN
highway system De
was certainly
not ubiquitous,
providing high-speed
connection to all parts
of the Panhandle and
the peninsula. Tourists
were a more home-grown
variety.
The county roads and
state highways provided
access to attractions
ranging from Mom-and-
Pop alligator farms to
watching the Seminoles
make palm-husk dolls
and shirts decorated with
rows of tiny orange, red,
and yellow rick-rack.
Many of these
entertainments have
disappeared entirely, and
a few have transformed;
for example, I remember
when Busch Gardens
was simply a tour of the
brewery and an exotic
bird show. Nowadays, big-
ticket theme parks dot the
landscape within driving
distance of Disney.
Back in the day, just to
the east of Perry (gateway
to the rural Panhandle),
there was Dog Land.
Gator Land was situated
just a few miles down the
road. Mama, sister Susan,


and I had no
curiosity about
gators, but we
loved dogs. One
day, on the way
home from our
Thanksgiving
holiday at my
aunt and uncle's
farm, we stopped
in.


belly, and big jolly laugh.
We were entranced.
The Ross Allen
Rattlesnake show was
hypnotizing in a different
way. Set up in a concrete
arena, filled with hissing,
aggravated reptiles,
this guy made a lifetime
of milking venom from
rattlesnakes and making
little kids squeal in horror.
An afternoon at Six
Gun Territory provided
another variety of delights.
There was a Wild Mouse
wooden roller coaster, a
gondola ride, and a train
journey through the
wilderness. Desperate
masked gun slingers
were known to accost the
innocent passengers at
any moment. We bought
old-fashioned horehound
drops at the General Store
and wet our whistles in
the Red Dog Saloon. A
peaceful stroll around
town just might turn
violent any second.
My brother-in-law,
Chuck Keith, spent a
year-and-a-half as a Six
Gun hired gun. Is this the
dream job for a teenage
boy, or what?
The gang of cowboys
provided six shoot-outs a
day. They rotated among
three rehearsed and
scripted scenarios. There
was the bank robbery,
the fight between guys
pouring out of the saloon
and the cantina, and the
jailbreak near the horse
corral.

As I recall,
spacious kennels
under big shady oak trees
provided homes for dozens
of different breeds of
dogs. We enjoyed strolling
around, and the dogs
seemed happy. We thought
it was pretty cool.
The farm was about a
half hour away from Ocala,
home to Silver Springs,
the Ross Allen rattlesnake
show, Tommy Bartlett's
Deer Ranch and Six Gun
territory.
Practically all of the
aunts, uncles, and cousins
would take a break from
turkey leftovers and
make the trek into town
to play tourist for a day.
We rode in glass-bottom
boats and watched as
enormous fish gobbled up
bread balls tossed into the
water by a talkative guide.
We filled our palms with
little pellets dispensed
for a quarter a shot from
vending machines. The
deer, gently and damply,
snarfed the food up from
Our hands. One year, a
genuine Santa had set up
shop in the deer park. He

Six Gun Territory held on

Seventies before it went
completely down.
For him, it was great
fun while it lasted. "It was
every kid's Roy Rogers

employees at Disney love
their jobs that much.

They supplied their
own clothes, hats, and
boots. The Territory
provided the guns.
"We had standard-
issue 45 revolvers
loaded with plastic blank
inserts. Six shots was the
maximum," Chuck said.
"We cleaned our guns
after each performance.
At the end of the day,
we turned them in to be
checked and cleaned."
All was not glamour.
Between fights the guys
had to pick up litter and
empty garbage. They also

cars, and other rides.

Chuck made the

did it once.

property at a reasonable
price, the sale by Dan
Garlick appears to be
tainted due to his position
on the Airport Advisory
Board.
As a board member,
Mr. Garlick was involved in
the proposal that property
adjacent to the airport
be acquired to expand
the runway protection
zone. Since the purchase
of this particular parcel
of property was initially
considered by the county
commission, Mr. Garlick
has acquired that property.
Given Mr. Garlick's position
on the Airport Advisory
Board and his involvement
in recommending the
purchase and acquiring
grant funds for the
purchase, a sale from Mr.
Garlick appears to violate
the prohibition against

question of whether this
sale would be an arms-
length transaction at true
market value.
--While the intent of
adding land, albeit mainly
wetlands, might be the right
thing to do, the acts of the
various parties in pushing
this transaction have
seriously compromised
the public trust. More
important than the
transaction, the perception
of self-dealing, manipulation
and certain misstatements
by the parties have led to a
situation that has undercut
the public trust and must be
reformed. If this transaction
is to proceed, it must be
handled by disinterested
third parties that should
examine the entire
transaction against the
stated needs of the airport.
The CCFC sincerely
hopes the Board will

Free om means the

fight to compete
I have heard a lot
lately about a proposed
building project on St
George Island and also
about the St. George Island


'Itading Company. While
I respect the fact that
everyone is entitled to their
own opinion, I think that
people's rights are more
important than trying to
force personal opinions on
others.
Firstly, The St. George
Island Wtading Company
is a legal business which
operates within the law.
I see no reason why the
owners of this business
should not be allowed to
operate their business like
others. Yes, they sell crude
T-shirts but there are many
stores in this area that sell
crude shirts, hats, bumper
stickers or rent adult
movies. But the likelihood
of St. George Island
becoming like Panama
City is about the same as
Sopchoppy becoming like
New York City.
The St. George Island
'Itading Company is a
big store which creates
competition with other
stores, but those other
stores started competition
when they first opened.
So the claim that the St.
George Island 'Itading
Company will put some
poor local out of business
is not fair. Most of the
businesses on the island
are owned by people that
do not live here or by
people that recently moved
here for the purpose of
starting a business here.
I remember the
days before there was a


Plantation. We would ride
our jeeps down an old
logging trail through what
is now the Plantation and
fish and camp at the cut.
Now the whole area is
covered in multi-million
dollar mansions, many of
which are rented out and
create more traffic and
more pollution. And more
demand for tourist-related
businesses. Many of the
owners of these homes
think that as soon as they
got here they want to shut
the door on everyone else.
How would they feel if
people protested against
them when they came
here?
If we really want to
preserve St. George Island,
maybe we should remove
all the residential and
business development
and plant sea oats. This
is The United States of
America where people
have the right to work
hard to achieve dreams.
Competition is what
makes America strong. If
someone wants to invest
in putting another grocery
store or whatever on the
island, then they have
that right. I personally do
not think there is enough
demand to support a lot
of increased businesses
but that is only my humble
opinion.
We all benefit from
free competition. I do not
want to see anyone go out
of business but we must


respect free enterprise and
the system that allowed
us and others our chance
and allow others this same
chance. St. George Island
does need a comprehensive
plan and I would like to see
a temporary moratorium
on new permit applications
and a real plan developed.
There are businesses
on the island that have
been allowed to operate in
violation of many different
laws; if this will not be
addressed then forget
everything. Maybe the
people who feel compelled
to protest against law-
abiding businesses should
redirect their protests
towards businesses that
are violating zoning laws
by operating in residential
sections, or businesses
in violation of parking
or stormwater runoff
requirements or, most
importantly, businesses
breaking environmental
laws by grossly exceeding
their sewer capacity. If
anyone really wants to
know who these businesses
are and what laws they are
violating feel free to contact
me and I will provide you
documentation of what I
say.
I am sorry if I offend
anyone with my comments
but I support the American
way which respects hard
work and free enterprise
and competition and equal
enforcement of our laws.

Special to the Times

On Monday, I went
to register to vote at the
Supervisor of Election office.
My aunt Carol Barfield said
to me "You are now 18. It's
time for you to register to
vote because everyone's
vote counts."
I just turned 18 in June Z1
but I wasn't in rush to
vote because I didn't think
voting was such a big deal. As I
was thinking, I realized that voting
really is a big deal because it gives
you power, control, and your vote


really does matter because every
vote counts. When I reached the
entrance I was a tad bit nervous.
For what reason? I have no
idea.
When I got to the desk I
was handed a registration
form and while filling it out,
my lovely friend Lashonda
Williams brought in two
friends of mine, Antonio
ACHARY Sanders and Quanteka
JONIES Croom to register to vote.
They too are now 18 and
voting is a big step into the big
world.
It doesn't matter which party
you vote for as long as you vote for


who you think is right for the job.
I think all citizens who are able to
vote should, because voting is not
just a privilege but an opportunity
for your opinion to count and mean
something.
I advise all my peers to get
involved in our community and take
the time to register and vote. When
I got finished registering a great
feeling came over me and I felt like I
was a somebody. I will vote this year
and make the right decision for who
I believe in.

Ai's restored in love and war


Carrabelle welcomes WWll landing craft back to life


By Lois Swoboda
Times StaffWriter

The Camp Gordon John-
ston Museum in Carrabelle
has received a fully restored
DUKW landing craft like
the ones soldiers trained in
on Carrabelle Beach during
World War II.
On Friday, Buddy Bryan
of Tifton, GA presented the
museum with the DUKW, a
gift that honors the memo-
ry of dear friend, Tony Fa-
lotico, also of Tifton, who
died two years ago.
The DUKW (popularly
pronounced "duck") is a
six-wheel-drive amphibious
truck, designed by The Roy-
al Navy during World WarlI
for transporting goods and
troops over land and water
and for approaching and
crossing beaches in am-
phibious attacks. The first
vehicle to allow the driver to
vary the tire pressure from
inside the cab, the DUKW's
tires could be fully inflated
for hard surfaces such as
roads and less inflated for
softer surfaces, especially
beach sand. This feature,
now standard on many mil-
itary vehicles, added to the
DUKW's great versatility
as an amphibious vehicle.
The designation of
DUKW is not a military
pun. The name comes from
the model naming termi-
nology used by General
Motors Corporation; the
D indicates a vehicle de-
signed in 1942, the U meant
"utility (amphibious)," the
K indicated all-wheel drive
and the W indicated two
powered rear axles.
Bryan said he spent
several months refurbish-
ing the craft, which the
museum obtained from the
New Orleans Police De-
partment junkyard after it
hadi ben used as a police
Sid Winchester, presi-
dent of the Camp Gordon
Johnston museum, helped
locate the DUKW, and it
was brought to Carrabelle
where prisoners from the
Franklin Correctional In-
stitution replaced rusted
portions of the armor. The
DUKW appeared at sev-
eral fundraisers and public
celebrations before Bryan,
who owns Utilico Railroad
Services, took it to Tifton
for further repairs in his
shop.
"I started at the radia-
tor and worked my way
completely back from bow
to stern. I overhauled the
engine, transmission and
transfer case," Bryan said.
The DUKW can now run at
up to 45 miles per hour.
Van Gandy, who works
for Bryan, transported the
DUKW to Carrabelle on a
flat bed truck. He praised
Bryan, who has rebuilt
Other antique machinery
in his workshop, saying
he thought his employer
could do "anything he put
his mind to."

in which he toured Paris during World War II.
The model is on display at the Camp Gordon
Johnston Museum at the municipal complex in
Carrabelle.

A BRUSH WITH BLOODY FATE
Gene Halistrom of Lanark Village is the
chaplain of the Camp Gordon Johnston
Museum.
Attending Friday's ceremony to give the
blessing, he told this story of his own World
War II experience.
Halistrom served with the Ath Infantry Division
in the 70th tank battalion. After fighting in the
Battle of Cherbourg, he was deployed to support
the 83rd Infantry in the Battle of St. Lo.
On July 6, 1945, one of the tanks traveling
with him pushed through a hedgerow and
discovered that the German line was on the
other side.
The tank was hit and demobilized. The
servicemen inside scrambled out and Halistrom's
tank pulled behind the damaged tank to shelter
thtem.
He saw a sudden f lash. The tank in which he
was traveling had been hit and 1 80 gallons of
fuel was on fire.
Halistrom and his comrades in arms fled the
flaming shell and ran the length of a football
field to douse their blazing clothing in a swamp.
He remembers crawling through a culvert into
a ditch, bloody and singed. Looking around, he
saw that everyone was dead except for a lone
GI who was standing in the midst of the firefight.
"I remember thinking he was stupid,"
Hlsrom said
The GI showed him the way to escape. It was
a harrowing scramble. At one point, they were
forced to cross, exposed above ground, to the
next trench, because the culvert was blocked by
the body of a dead soldier too swollen from the
heat to be pulled free.
"After that I trusted Christ," said Halistrom. "I
realized God had sent angels to protect me."
After leaving St. Lo, the 70th Tank Battalion
went on to help liberate Paris.
"I'm one of only a few people who have
toured Paris in a 32-ton tank," Halistrom
quipped.
Although angels may well have been involved
in Halistrom's escape for death, his guide to
freedom was an earthly entity who Halistrom
encountered again quite by chance.
When the war was over, Halistrom attended
Bradley University in Peoria, IL. One day, he
was seated next to a stranger on a park bench.
They began to exchange war stories. Halistrom
told the man the story of St. Lo and how he fled
a burning tank.
"I saw you get hit," the man responded.
"Were you that crazy guy standing in the
trench?" Halistrom asked him.
The man confessed that he was one of
Halistrom's guardian angels. By Lois
Swoboda

Services Inc. in Tifton, GA.


Those northern boys had a
time of it here."
Helen first met her fu-
ture husband, quite casu-
ally, at a USO dance in Tal-
lahassee.
"We were very well chap-
eroned then," she said. "We
went to the dance on a bus
and when we got there the
doors were locked and we
didn't leave the dance hall.
We were locked in 'till we
got back on the bus."
One day after the dance,
a truck streaked by as
Helen walked along US 98.
It stopped abruptly and
backed up, and the driver
asked Helen, "What are you
doing here?"
"I work here," she re-
plied.
TonGood, very good," said
Tony had volunteered
for Camp Gordon Johnston
while stationed in Tennes-
see. "I'm not going to do
any more walking," he told
friends "I'm going to ride in
a boat.
After meeting Helen
all that changed and he
regularly walked the mile
between the camp and the
Lanark Hotel.
"When we went out, he
would have to walk over
here and pick me up. Then
we'd walk to Carrabelle
where we might go to a
movie or the PX, whatever
we had planned," she said.
"They had a big theatre for
the base with all of the new
pictures. Carrabelle had
places to dance too. We did
a lot of dancing."
After the date, Tony
walked Helen home and
then had to walk back to his
barracks, so for him a date
was four miles roundtrip.
"He didn't walk much
after he got out of the ser-
vice," Helen observed.
The romance blossomed
into a proposal. Just before


Tony shipped out to Fort
Ord, California he and Hel-
en were sitting on a trash
can by the railroad tracks.
He looked at her and
asked, "What do you
think?"
"I said OK," remem-
hered Helen.
She transferred with
him to his new base short-
ly afterward and they were
married on May 17, 1943, at
the First Baptist Church of
Los Angeles. He shipped
overseas in 1943, five days
before Christmas, and it
would be23 months before
she heard his voice again.
Their baby girl was born
in July 1944 and would be
15 months old before Tony
saw her for the first time.
They had three chil-
dren; a son, John and
two daughters Elizabeth,
now deceased, and Helen
"Winkie" Falotico Wright.
After the war, the Fa-
loticos attended many
Camp Gordon Johnston
reunions
"I really love it down
here. Maybe it was be-
cause I met Tony here and
fell in love," said Helen.
John and Winkie ac-
companied their mother to
the dedication.

Gordon Johnston Museum

ticks, sand thies,
gnatS aind snakes

Falotico's widow, Helen
gave the keynote speech
during Friday's dedication
of the DUKW. After thank-
ing Bryan for "this won-
derful gift to my husband
Tony," she described her
life at Camp Gordon John-
ston.
Helen Falotico, who had
come to Tallahassee to at-
tend business school, took
the civil service exam upon
graduation and was sent
to Camp Gordon Johnston,
where she was secretary of
the motor pool. Her parents
in Camilla, GA were glad
fo0 her help with the war
"I was lucky I worked
there because it meant I
could have a car and driv-
er," she said.
She didn't have a full-
time vehicle but one was
available to carry her on er-
rands or between her office
and her quarters at the old
Lanark Hotel, which she
described as beautiful and
grand.
Civil service workers
stayed in the hotel but their
quarters were very simple,
with a small chest of draw-
ers and cots like the ones
supplied for the GIs. They
lived two to a room.
While workers like Hel-
en slept in a building and
ate in a dining hall, GIs like
her husband Tony lived be-
tween two tents; one where
they slept and one where
they ate. Some of the wom-
en at the camp were single
and some were young wives
who came to work there to
be near their husbands.
Helen remembered the
camp as "A muddy place
blessed with ticks, sand
flies, gnats and snakes.

Times Citv Editor

Responding to an in-
crease in participation at
the food pantries, county
commissioners has agreed
on a plan to boost funding
for next year, and to specify
how money is allocated be-
tween the Apalachicola and
Carrabelle pantries.
At the July 23 budget
workshop, the commis-
sioners heard from three
representatives of Frank-
lin's Promise Coalition, as
well as from the Rev. Mark
Collins, pastor of the Fel-
lowship Baptist Church in
Carrabelle, a member of
the board of the Carrabelle
Food Pantry.
The Carrabelle Food
Pantry is a not-for-profit
created last September to
oversee the food pantry
needs of Carrabelle. The
area is also eseraerdab la
Church of God.
Collins said the Carra-
belle Food Pantry, which
grew out of a startup ef-
fort by Carrabelle Cares,
serves about 144 people
every Thursday morning
at the Carrabelle United
Methodist Church, and has
seen a rise in interest due
to a worsening economy.
"We're on our own as an
organization, he said. "We
have no expense to store
food at the church office.


tinue with a $2,500 to cover
infrastructure costs, for a
total of $20,500.
Franklin's Promise cov-
ers annual infrastructure
costs which consist of pay-
ing a staff person $14 per
hour for 20 hours per week.
The staffer is in charge of
ordering, receiving and
organizing all food, main-
taining all records, paying
all bills, assisting in grant
preparation, and other du-
ties. In addition, the orga-
nization pays an additional
$2,560 per year to cover
rent, utilities and office ex-
penses.
Last year, Franklin's
Promise had total income
of nearly $80,000, helped by
donations from county and
Apalachicola government,
Trinity Episcopal, Untied
Way, grants, and private
donations.
tio years aga, the coali-b
261 people per month from
its Apalachicola location,
and last year the number
had risen to 400.
The commissioners de-
cided to allocate a total of
$20,500 to food pantries in
the county, but did so by
specifying how the alloca-
tion would be divvied up.
Franklin's Promise is to
get $14,350 in direct sub-
sidy, with $3,075 going to
the Carrabelle Food Pantry
and $3,075 to the Carrabelle
Church of God.

Pantry are Pastor MVark Collins, from the Fellowship
Baptist Church.


We saw a need to go out
on our own. We spend 100
percent of the money that
comes in on food."
Collins said the Car-
rabelle organization re-
ceived $409 from Frank-
lin's Promise two months
ago, as part of its pro-rated
share of funding.
Sister Jeanne Drea,
flanked by Franklin's
Promise secretary Linda
Raffield and board mem-


her Dr. John Sink, said
Franklin's Promise pro-
vided Carrabelle with its
30 percent share of food
pantry monies, but the
situation is complicated by
the presence of two sepa-
rate food countries in Car-
rabelle and a lack of docu-
mentation provided by the
pantries.
Collins confirmed that
there has been an unwill-
ingness to provide docu-


mentation. "We chose
to refuse that," he said.
"They have no rights to
our records. We've done
without them for the
whole year and we sur-
vived."
All parties agreed that
the need for food to needy
families is growing.
Drea said there has
been a 53 percent increase
in participants in the Apala-
chicola, Eastpoint and St.


George island area. She
said food has become less
available from the Second
Harvest Food Bank, and
that food costs have risen
20 percent.
"If children do not have
nutrition, they can not
learn," she said.
Franklin's Promise re-
quested that the county
commission increase
their subsidy for food from
$17,000 to $18,000, and con-


meybmeakoe tefm more vul-
"The real group we want
to approach is 18 to 45. Nor-
mally that's a group you
don't have to go after that
hakd. People owhin theattahe
group," said the doctor.
On the top of the list for
vaccinations are pregnant
women, people who are
in contact with infant chil-
dren, health workers who
have direct contact with ill
people, children up to age 4
and children age 5 to 18 who
have greater risk factors for
the flu.
"W 8ee 88We'll have a good
participation level," said
Charbonneau. "We're going
to do the schools too, as chil-
dren are a very vulnerable
group with this particular
virus."
The schoolkids will be
given shots at school, while
adults will be able to get the
needle at the former Apala-
chicola and Carrabelle high
schools.
"We can't force anyone to
get a shot, it's going to be up
to the parents," said Char-
bonneau. "We want them to
come out and we want them


to participate. This is volun-

While no cases of the nov-
el H1N1 flu virus has shown
up yet in the county, health
officials are bracing for it to
sufacne olnc sho eins

back together, that's when
you'll see an upsurge in ac-
tivity," Charbonneau said.
"What we've seen in the
summer camps is there's
quite an upsurge when all
these kids got together."
From now until the vac-
cinations arrive, Charbon-
neau urged residents not
to panic but to take sensible
precautions. Currently,
world health officials rate
the severity of this pandem-
ic flu virus as a 2 on a scale
of 1 to 5.
"If your kid is sick and
if you're sick please stay
home," he said. "Cover your
cough, wash your hands,
and try to keep a distance.
Three feet is a little extreme
but that's the optimal dis-
tance.
"Some people don't
shake hands," he added.
"I wish everyone could get
along, but that's potentially
passing it on."

slowly westward against
the prevailing wind.
On Friday, Aug. 7 the
wind shifted to the south-
east and the fire contin-
ued slowly to the west. It
burned in marshes on the
bay side of the island until
about 11 a.m. until it came
to a narrow area of the is-
land that is too sparsely
ve stated to carry the fire.
At that point, the fire went
out. This is the same area,
a narrow strip that over-
washes in major storms
that stopped the fires in


1999 and 2007 from spread-
ing further east.
The east end of the is-
land hadn't burned since
about 1989. Only a small
area was burned during
this wildfire.
ANERR staff are con-
tinuing to monitor the fire
site but the blaze appeared
to have been fully extin-
gished by late Friday af-
ternoon.

Fi shing fares well at sherff s tourney


The debut of the Sheriff's
Office fishing tournament Sat-
urday drew 28 teams compet-
ing against one another, culmi-
nating in a spirited gathering
at Apalachicola's Battery Park
for the weigh-in.
Not all teams subjected
their catch to the scales
manned by weighmaster Mare
Grove, from Wefing's Marine,
though.
This was because they ra-
dioed ahead from the water to
Sherriff Skip Shiver, and Sgts.
Ryan Sandoval and John Solo-
mon, and knew what they were
up against.
They just couldn't face
competition from the likes of
the Papa Joe's team, Chad
Zingarelli and Stacy Kirvin,
who reeled in a total of 38.9
pounds in the three fishing cat-


egories to win the grand prize
trophy and $500.
The two-person teams were
competing to see how well they
could do catching redfish, trout
and triple tail, with first-place
winners in each category win-
ning $150.
The youth were competing
to see how many pounds of
redfish, trout, croaker, sailcat
and whiting they could snag.
Among the young people,
Carrie Kidman won first place
in trout, with 3.5 pounds, fol-
lowed by Tate and Drake Stan-
ley, each with 2.93 pounds.
Among the croaker catch-
ers, Brandon Taranto won with
0.64 pounds, followed by Cam-
eron White, with 0.39 pounds,
and Wesley Taranto, with 0.28
pounds.
In sailcat, Jacob Pendleton


won with 5.3 pounds, Tanner
Moses was second with 2.62
pounds, and Chase Taranto
was third with 2.53.
The winners got fishing
poles and tackle boxes, and
all the participants took home
poles.
The most single-minded
of the fishermen were Team
Pendleton, Tommy Pendleton
and his son, T.J., and grand-
son Jacob, who devoted them-
selves entirely to triple tail.
They pulled in a whopping 24.6
pounds of the prized eating
fish to pull ahead of Papa Joes,
with 17.4 pounds, and Apala-
chicola Physical Therapy, Tom
Brocato and Pam Nobles, with
8.6 pounds.
In trout, 2 Mile Style, com-
posed of Gene Boone and John
Sapp, Jr. won with 23.6 pounds,


followed by Gander's Distribut-
ing, Jerome Brown and Wesley
Wilson, with 21.4 pounds, and
Riversedge Mortgage, made
up of Stan Grant and Jonathan
Brown, with 11 pounds.
In redfish, Riversedge
Mortgage won with 11 pounds,
followed by Team Resort Va-
cation, Al Douglas and Tim
Termarsh, ,and Apalachicola
Physical Therapy, each with
10.7 pounds.
The largest trash fish
earned a $50 prize for an 11.9-
pound shark, won by Team
Barber, Corey Griffin and Da-
vid Barber, Jr.
All monies raised goes to

said, "The vacant land
is the keystone to the in-
crease.
Fling said, "We did not
rndtetnhisntpepultean undu
not pay. They cannot lose
their house for not paying
an assessment."
Abbott said those who
can't pay, can get a form
from the Tax Collector's
office requesting to be ex-
empted.

MSBUs don't cover
operating budgetS

Fling said all of the
county fire departments
experienced a shortfall
this year, defined as the
difference between the
amount raised in MSBU
assessments and their op-
erating budgets. He said
that without the increase
some of the local fire de
apartments will close.
St. GeorgelIsland raised
the most in MSBU money,
$68,346, and had the great-
est shortfall, $90,000, from
their operating budget of
$158,346. The Eastpoint
department raised $45,150
from the MSBU assess-
ments, nearly $8,000 short
from their $53,000 operat-
ing budget
Alligator Point's $31,558
MSBU assessment fell
about $3,000 short of their
$34,535 operating budget,
while Lanark/St. James's
MSBU assessment,
$29,706, was more than
$18,000 short of its $48,050
operating budget. Dog
Island's operating budget
of $5,600 was nearly $600
more than was raised in
$5,124 in MSBU assess-
ments.
Fling said the short-
falls are largely due to
more mandated standards
for equipment and train-
ing, and increases in the
cost of equipment and li-
ability insurance. He said


"I have received a number ofca~lls and emaccils
~fi~om people weho are conlcerndc~t an i~ncreasee
On anything: undlerstacnd the importance
Ofwehat these folks are doing. I am opposed to any taxe

new safety inspections for
trucks mandated by the
Department of Homeland
Security have also greatly
increased operating costs.
In 2001, firefighters
were required to receive
40 hours of training at a
cost of $25 per trainee. As
of 2009 the federal govern-
ment requires firefighters
to train for 240 hours at a
cost of $800. The cost li-
ability insurance for the
five departments has more
than doubled to a whop-
ping $51,000 over the last
10 years. Each individual
firefighter must now be
outfitted with $8,000 worth
of equipment.
"Dog Island's truck
broke down and they had
to take up a collection to
fix it,' Fling said. "Lanark
Village's fire department
has been operating on say-
ings for two years."
Eastpoint Fire Chief
George Pruett said, "The
last time Eastpoint got
a new fire truck, I had to
sign for it. I don't know if
you know what that does
to my debt-to-income ra-
tio."
Fling said the average
household assessment in
Florida is over $100, much
less than the assess-
ment county firefighters
are requesting. He said
homeowners' insurance


The International Stan-
dardization Organization
rates fire departments on
three criteria: how well
they get and dispatch
alarms; staffing, training,
response time and equip-
ment; and the communi-
ty's water supply. This al-
lows them to assign Public
Protection Classifications
(PPC) to communities.
Most of Franklin Coun-
ty received a PPC rating of
6 on a scale from the best
1 to the worst 10. Because
of this, a home valued
at $250,000 saves about
$18,000 in property insur-
ance. Even residences
located out of range of de-
partments save because
the presence of fire sta-
tions makes the outlying
area's safety rating a 9
rather than 10.
"I have received a num-
ber ofecalls and emails from
people who are concern
an increase on anything'
Commissioner Pinki Jack-
el said. "I understand the
importance of what these
folks are doing. I am op-
posed to any tax increase
but this one. I do not agree
with the assessments the
way they are presented.

Proposedacssessments
Whittled do n


posed assessments.
The firefighters agreed
to lower the assessment on
single and multiple family
residences from $57 to $50
per unit. The maximum
rate for mobile home parks,
travel trailer/RV rental
parks and commercial es-
tablishments was reduced
from $500 to $375. The max-
imum fee from hotels was
lowered from $750 to $500.
The fee for vacant par-
cels was lowered from $12
to $10,regardless of the size
of the parcel. The associa-
tion had initially requested
$30 per parcel. As a devel-
opment is subdivided, the
individual owners will be
assessed.
The current assessment
for a single-family dwelling,
or a single unit of a multi
fa heyren lospero ery,ai
of $8 would increase the as-
sessment to $50.
Mobile home parks
would be assessed at $16
per space, with a maxi-
mum of $375 per trailer
park. This is an increase of
$4 per space.
The proposed increase
for travel trailer and RV
rental spaces is $3 per
space, bringing the rate to
$8 per space up to $375.
The proposed MSBU for
hotels and inns is $10 per
room, an increase of $3 per

Captain Walter Shell is shown aboard the Northeaster, which won the Florida Seafood Festival award every year in the later 1970s for Best
Decorated Boat or Best Boat Handling.

Special to the Times


National Guard.
He was assigned to
the 795th Military Police
Battalion, which had been
constituted June 23, 1942, and
ordered to active duty July
7, 1942, at Camp Blanding.
After his basic training, they
boarded the SS Griffin and
shipped out of Newport News,
R.I., headed for North Algiers.
As a private first class,
Shell was assigned to the
military police. He served in
Algiers, Tunisia and Italy. He
was authorized to wear the
European-African Theatre
Ribbon with one Bronze Star
the Good Conduct Medal, the
American Theatre Ribbon
and three overseas chevrons,
two gold and one blue, and the
World War II Victory Medal.
Finally, the war was over
and it was time to come home.
It was a jubilant time, and it
was time to pick up lives that
had been on hold.
Shell returned to
Apalachicola and to
shrimping. Over the next
years, there would be several
boats to captain, and was
difficult to remember them
all, but there was a carpenter
named Nick who was building
a boat he called the Mertle B.,
but financially he was unable
to keep it, and the ownership
changed to Demo's, and they
renamed her Frosine. Shell
thought he might have run
that boat.
In 1947, he was on the
Isabella. In the fishing
industry, as in farming, timing
is essential. One story that
came to mind is the time
the owners bought a three-
cylinder Detroit Diesel, which
was a fine engine capable
of running at 18 rpm. While
waiting for the prized new
engine to be installed in the
Isabella, Shell was stuck in
dry dock while other boats
had already started work.
Consequently, two weeks of


valuable time and money
were lost.

A pretty redhead
catches his eye
It was not all work and
no play, though. There was
a certain young lady with
reddish hair that caught
Shell's eye. She was not a
stranger to him, as their
families had associated with
each other over the years, but
now he was seeing her in a
different light.
Shell and Audie (Boyett)
began their courtship and
were joined in marriage
by Judge Weatherspoon
on Aug. 30, 1947. Had Shell
lived another few weeks,
he and Audie would have
celebrated their 62nd wedding
anniversary.
After their marriage, Shell
and Audie rented a room from
Shell's father in a large two-
story house on the corner of
Avenue E and Fifth Street in
Apalachicola. In March 1949,
their space requirements
would change when their first
child was born.
Just around the corner on
Fourth Street, they acquired
a corner lot on which they
would build their home. As
mentioned earlier, timing
is an important thing, and
this was no different. The
Catholic Church was building
a new rectory, and the old one
had been torn down. Shell
purchased the lumber for
$500. Whenever they had any
spare time, they would work
on the project. On Feb. 1, 1952,
they moved into the home
they had built themselves.
Although shrimping was
his primary work, Shell was
also involved in other forms of
marine harvesting from time
to time. In the 1950s, it was
scalloping on the Maria.

Walter Clowers Shell was
born near Cordele, Ga., on
July 1, 1921, but his family
moved to Florida when he was
about 3. He was the seventh
child of nine, with three
sisters and five brothers.
He grew up during the
Great Depression, when
many young men were called
on to help support their
families. Because of these
circumstances, Shell's formal
education was limited to
elementary school only. His
contribution consisted mostly
of working on the waterfront.
He was often called upon by
shrimpers to dive under their
boats to free line that was
tangled in the prop.
When he was 15, his
mother died, leaving the
family on their own. He
started working in the
shrimping industry in about
1936 at the age of 15. This
would become his life's
work. His first job on a boat
was with Acme Canning
and Shrimping. He recalled
that he was working on the
Margaret S when the plant
caught fire and burned. In
order to save the boat, which
was his livelihood, Shell had
to maneuver himself onto a
thin board and walk around
until he was able to reach the
mooring ropes, which held the
Margaret S. Normally, these
lines would be considered a
safety measure to guard the
boat; now they threatened
to hold her until the fire
consumed her.
With his boat cut free, he
could have made an exit to
guard his own safety, but he
did not stop there. Another
vessel, the Sharope, was
moored with steel cable and
not so easily freed. To save
her, he had to pound the winch
with a steel bar until the cable


manner of seafood.
broke. Out in the river, an
elderly man, Dan Gillis, was
in position to catch the boats
and tow them to safety. It was
a heroic gesture on the part of
the whole group.
Later, Shell was a deck
hand working for a half- share
with George Rogers on
the Margie Louise. Rogers
became his brother-in-law
when he married Shell's
sister, Emma Inez.
Shell was decking on the
Sylvia with his brother J.D.
at Demo's Standard Fish and
Oyster Co. when his hard
work earned him a break. He
recalled that J.D. had gone to
the office to share up. When
he came back to the boat, he
was showing the share ticket
to Shell and how much they
had made. Then J.D. told him
"George Demo said he would
like to see you in the office."
When Shell arrived Mr.
Demo said, "Bo, I have a deal
for you. You've been with us


for a while now, and well, I've
rebuilt the Geo. D.; she needs
a captain, and I want you to be
it." The next week, he hired
Erwin June to be his deck
hand. So in 1937 at the age of
16, he became Capt. Walter
Shell.

War takes him to
Europe, North Africa
In 1942, Shell received his
draft notice. He remembered
the day well, as he was
helping his brother J.D.
build the
house across
the street
-from where
Shell would
eventually
build his own
home. He

into the Army
on Nov. 11, 1942. Before his
induction, he had served six
months and one day in the

In the wake of current water wars, it's hard to believe Atlanta once disputed the value of the
Chattahoochee River as a water source, but it happened. In 1948 Mayor William B. Hartsfield wrote the
following response when Congress asked Atlanta to help fund the construction of Buford Dam.
"Frankly, in our zeal I think we have just laid too much emphasis on the Chattahoochee as a water
supply," Hartsfield wrote. "In our case the benefit is only incidental and in case of a prolonged drought.
The city of Atlanta has many sources of potential water supply in North Georgia. Certainly a city which
is only one hundred miles below one of the greatest rainfall areas in the nation will never find itself in
the position of a city like Los Angeles."
We're not sure who these men are or why Hartsfield sent Apalachicola Mayor C. M. Hendriksen
a barrel of Chattahoochee River water. If you know, please share the information by contacting the
Apalachicola Carrabelle Times at timesnewsestarfl.com or by calling 653-8868. Many thanks to Mark

"The federal grant
funding helps underwrite
<'lorida's commitment to
restore marine habitat
and safeguard vital coast-
al areas," said Sally Mann,


DEP's director of inter-

"Working with our federal
and state partners, local
governments and non-
profit organizations, DEP
continues to protect the
sandy beaches and coastal
communities for residents
and visitors alike."
In September, commu-
nities may apply for grant
funds for fiscal year 2010-
11. The grant proposal so-
licitation will be published

DEP's Florida Coastal
Management Program ad-
ministers the annual grant
from NOAA. The pro-
gram includes a network
of agencies that protect
and enhance the state's
natural, cultural and eco-
nomic coastal resources
and helps sustain viable
waterfront communities.
The program coordinates
local, state and federal
agency activities using
existing laws to ensure
Florida's coast remains a
valuable resource for fu-
ture generations. The pro-
gram also provides coastal
communities with beach
access signs, safety/warn-
ing flags and rip current
awareness signs.

Request for Information (RFI)
The Area Agency on Aging for North Florida, Inc. is seeking sources interested in achieving
Community Care for the Elderly (CCE) Lead Agency designation in accordance with Section
430.203(9), Florida Statutes. Lead Agencies are designated to provide case management and
to coordinate various community-based services to eligible individuals within a specified
community care service area (CSA). For the purpose of this request for information (RFI), a
CSA is defined as a county. Counties include: Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes,
Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Wakulla, and Washington Counties.
Prospective sources must demonstrate the ability to work with individuals age 60 and older.
The intent of the CCE program is to assist functionally impaired elderly persons in living
dignified and reasonably independent lives in their on n homes or in the homes of relatives
or caregivers through the development, expansion, reorganization, and coordination of various
community-based services. The Legislature intends that a continuum of care be established so
that functionally impaired elderly persons age 60 and older may be assured the least restrictive
environment suitable to their needs. The development of innovative approaches to program
management, staff training, and service delivery which have an impact on cost-avoidance, cost-
effectiveness, and program efficiency is encouraged.
This RFI is a preliminary step to the release of a Request for Proposal (RFP) package on or
around September 4, 2009. Failure to respond by the deadline specified below shall constitute
a "not interested" response.
Designated Lead Agencies will also be responsible for program management of the Alzheimer's
Disease Initiative and Home Care for the Elderly Program, and must be an enrolled provider
in the Aged and Disabled Adult Waiver Program to provide case management and coordinate
services.
The Area Agency on Aging for North Florida, Inc. is also seeking sources interested in providing
services to older adults under the federal Older Americans Act Title III-B: supportive services,
and III-C1 and III-C2: nutritional services in aforementioned CSAs, or counties. Organizations
interested in providing services in a CSA county under both the Community Care for the Elderly
Act and Older Americans Act should provide a response for each CSA county of interest to
the Area Agency on Aging indicating their dual interest. The Area Agency on Aging for North
Florida, Inc. does not intend to an ard a contract on the basis of this request for information or to
otherwise pay for the information solicited.
Deadline: Written responses to this RFI are due to the Area Agency on Aging for North Florida,
Inc. no later than 3:00 p. m., EST on August 21, 2009. Responses should include the organization
name, contact person's name, contact person's email address, business address and phone
number. Only written responses w ill be accepted.

FWC bear biologist Dave Telesco, left, and outreach specialist Maria Williams,
rht resented E. Ralph Mills, center, with a plaque honoring Waste Pro for
providing bear proof containers to county homeowners.


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission presented Waste
Pro with the first ever commendation for
black bear conservation.
Waste Pro, one of the waste control
providers for the county, was honored for
providing bear proof waste containers
to homeowners in Franklin and Wakulla
counties.
E. Ralph Mills, Waste Pro's regional
vice president, accepted a plaque com-
mending the company for "Leadership in
Reducing Human-Bear Conflicts by Pro-
viding Wildlife Resistant Containers.
Mills said his firm initially ordered 200
bear-proof trash cans and has distributed
100.
He said that, thanks to funding from
FWC, the first 200 homeowners to receive
a bear proof container will have no rate
increase for the first six months they use
the cans. After the trial period, the collec-


tion fee goes up $5 a month for bear-proof
containers.
"We're hoping that once people see
how well the canisters work, they will be
willing to pay to keep one," said Mills.
The containers are fully guaranteed.
Customers can call Waste Pro at 697-8800
and have damaged cans usually replaced
on the same day.
Steve Thompson, director of marketing
for BearSaver in Ontario CA, the firm that
manufactures the cans, is an avid outdoor-
sman who spends much of his leisure time
visiting the back country out West where
contact with bears is commonplace. He
grew interested in bear-human interac-
tion during his woodland rambles.
In a telephone interview, he said he
worked on the conceptual design for the
cans and other bear-proof containers out
of love for the big mammals.

Tyre describes
three types of candidates
At the Aug. 6 meeting of the Carrabelle
city commission, Commissioner Ray Tyrre
told the audience, "We have an important
election coming up. Remember when you
vote, there are three types of candidates.
"First there is somebody who wants to
be somebody, a narcissist. There are also
people who have a personal agenda, and
they are usually in it for the money one way
or another. Finally, there will be people who
actually care about Carrabelle. Those are
the folks who are going to look out for you.
You need to remember that when you
vote. When the righteous increase, the peo-
ple rejoice, But when a wicked man rules,
people groan. Proverbs 29: 2"

cemeteryy road renamed




for ( arrablellgardener



















r. .
























At their August 6 meeting, Carrabelle city commissioners voted unanimously to name a stretch
of road running through Evergreen Cemetery Cecil Millender Road in honor of the man who has
enchanted the entire city with "Mamaw Garden," a floral tribute to his late wife.
Millender makes as many as eight trips a day to his wife's grave and spends hours watering,
planting and pruning. The road was formerly unnamed.
Commissioner Richard Sands said Millender's efforts have inspired other families to spruce up
their plots as well. "Vandalism has gone to just about zero since Mr. Cecil has been out there,"
he said.
"He's the best cemetery cop we've got," said Commissioner Ray Tyre.
"Dr. Cognetta once asked me, "Have they named anything after you in this town?" Millender
said. "I told him no and he said "What would you like to have named after you?' and I said this
stretch of road."
