YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER FOR MORE THAN 120 YEARS


VOL. 124 ISSUE 18


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
The beginning of a new school year
always holds out promise of brighter
future, but this week in the Franklin
County schools, the expectations
have been radiant.
A bright green lawn surrounding
a spiffed-up consolidated school in
Eastpoint greeted 852 students in
grades kindergarten through 12 on
Monday.
A rejuvenated Chapman
Elementary School, renovated and
spruced up this summer by staff,
volunteers and inmates after a year
of lying dormant, welcomed 320
Apalachicola Bay Charter School
students on the same day.


Add another18 pre-Kindergartners
at the ABC School, and 44 more pre-K,
ESE and Learning Center students
on the campus of the former Brown
Elementary School, and a total of
1,234 Franklin County students are
set to embark on the 2009-10 school
year.
"It would appear that the majority
of the staff, if not all of them, began this
school year with more optimism and
enthusiasm than we've experienced
in the recent past," said Franklin
County School Principal George
Oehlert.
"Life was good," said ABC School
Principal Don Hungerford following
Monday's opening.
Hungerford was particularly
happy with how well the weeks prior


to the start had gone, weeks marked
by a major chore to bring the former
Chapman campus alive after it was
shuttered at the end of the 2007-08
school year.
State inmates had painted walls,
tore up old carpeting to lay down
new tile, replaced drywall, and did
cabinetry work.
About 60 people from throughout
the community, including teenagers,
worked over the past month to get
the school in shape, moving half
the furniture over as well as all the
library books and then restocking
the shelves. They did two-thirds of
the cleaning, including the courtyard
and outside yard work, and replanted

Businessman Jerry Hall
is challenging incumbent
Frank Cook in the race for
Apalachicola city commis-
sion seat number 3, one of
two seats up for grabs at
the Sept. 8 ballot box.
Whoever of the two men
receives the most votes will
be the winner.
Hall, 62, lives at 52 7th
Street. Cook, 71, who re-
sides at 52 13th street, was
appointed two years ago to
fill the remainder of Com-
missioner Van Johnson's


term, after he was elected
mayor.
The other seat, commis-
sion seat number 4, is held
by incumbent Valentina
Webb, who is facing chal-
lenges Gulf State Commu-
nity Bank mortgage lend-
ing officer Brenda Ash and
former Apalachicola police
chief Anderson Williams.
This week the Times will
look at Commission seat
number 3, and next week
number 4.

city's top spot for 16 years, in four
separate decades.
A veteran of World War II, Nichols
died just three weeks short of his 89th
birthday while a patient at the Clifford
Chester Sims State Veterans' Nursing
Home in Panama City.
"We can thank God for the
freedoms we have in this country
because of men like Jimmie," said
Father Robert O'Loughlin, from the
Holy Mother of God Greek Orthodox
Church in Tallahassee, who officiated
at the Monday morning funeral that
filled the pews of 'lkinity.
O'Loughlin conducted the entire
service, chanting the Greek Orthodox
liturgy in English for the occasion,
with a blending of phrases in the
Greek language.
The sweet smell of incense filled
the sanctuary as O'Loughlin gently
swayed the censer, a silver vessel
suspended on chains, beside Nichols'


open casket. As he lay in repose, an
American flag was folded beside his
head. Atop the casket stood small
wooden icons, graced with images of
Jesus, Mary and the saints.
At the Trisagion services Sunday
night at the church, O'Loughlin told
of how he had met Nichols over the
past few years, and that while Nichols
had become less active in the Greek
Orthodox traditions, he sensed
Nichols' love and appreciation for the
religion in which he was raised.
"He was an icon of Apalachicola,"
O'Loughlin told the funeral service.
"He had a beautiful marriage to Olga,
and he had a wonderful family. As the
son of Greek immigrants, he worked
hard and he continued that spirit that
Greek immigrants brought to this
country."

Vote To Elect on Sept. 8


FRANK COOK

Apalachicola City Commission



Good A afternoon,
My name is Frank Cook and I would like to ask for your
support and vote on September 8 so that I may continue
serving as your Apalachicola City Commissioner, Seat 3.

I am a fifth generation Apalachicola resident with a family
and business history that dates back prior to the 1830s. As
a descendent of some of the town's first residents, I have a
deep and abiding respect for the history, culture and heritage of
Apalachicola.

LEADERSHIP, RESPECT, FAIRNESS
I am a 1956 graduate of Apalachicola's Chapman High School
after which I pursued a career in the Navy. Today, I am a retired
Naval Officer with more than 20 years of leadership experience,
including serving as a Commanding Officer of a Nuclear
Submarine. I currently serve on several community boards
and organizations including the Apalachicola City Commission,
Apalachicola Historical Society, Apalachicola Museum of Art
and the Franklin County Tourist Development Council. I have
also served as Chairman of the Apalachicola Planning & Zoning
Board and as a Vestry member of Trinity Episcopal Church.

MY POSITION
* I am for suitable development that creates jobs while
preserving heritage and area resources.

* I am for maintaining a small community attitude where
neighbors care about each other.

* I am for ensuring that City operations are effective and
responsive within a balanced budget.

I would appreciate your vote on Sept. 8 which will allow me to
continue serving as your Apalachicola City Commissioner. I
believe I have the leadership skills, temperament and vision to
lead our City forward. I know I have the historical perspective to
appreciate where we've been.

Times City Editor
Franklin County's unem-
ployment rate jumped by
a half-percentage point in
July, although it remained
tied for fourth best among
the state's 67 counties.
According to preliminary
labor market statistics re-
leased Friday by the Florida
Agency for Workforce Inno-
vation, the county's overall
jobless rate rose to 7.1 per-
cent in July, as 345 people
out of a labor force of 4,874
were without work.
The jobless rate in June
stood at 6.6 percent, with
324 people looking for em-
ployment out of a larger la-
bor force of 4,905.
One year ago, Franklin's
workforce was even larger,
at 4,923. The jobless rate
was at 4.4 percent, with only
219 unemployed.
Despite the rise, Frank-
lin's numbers tied with Oka-
loosa County as fourth best
among the state's 67 coun-
ties, behind only Liberty
County at 5.9 percent and
Monroe and Walton coun-
ties, each at 6.6 percent.
Florida's seasonally ad-
justed unemployment rate
for July is 10.7 percent, un-
changed from the revised
June rate of 10.7 percent
and up 4.4 percentage points
from the July 2008 rate.
The state's current
unemployment rate is
1.3 percentage points higher
than the national rate of
9.4 percent. The last time
the unemployment rate was
higher was October 1975
when it was 11.0 percent.
The loss of Florida jobs
has heen 5.2 percent overthe
past year, or about 400,000
jobs shed from the state's
7.7 million. The nation's rate
of decline is at 4.2 percent.
Florida's downturn started


in August 2007 with declines
in construction jobs, but has
spread to almost all indus-
tries.
The industries losing the
most jobs are trade, trans-
portation and utilities; profes-
sional and business services;
construction; manufacturing;
leisure and hospitality; finan-
cial activities; information;
and total government.
These industry job loss-
es are partially because of
weakness in motor vehicle
and parts dealers; employ-
ment services; specialty
trade contractors; fabricat-
ed metal product manufac-
turing; amusement, gam-
bling and recreation; credit
intermediation; publish-
ing; local government; and
repair and maintenance.
Private education and
health services, which grew
by 5,400 jobs this year, is
the only sector gaining jobs
among Florida's major in-
dustries. The increase is
because of health care and
social assistance, primarily
in nursing and residential
care facilities. Private edu-
cation declined by 4,000 jobs,
or 2.9 percent, over the year.
"The Agency for Work-
force Innovation continues
to infuse federal stimulus
funds directly to Florid-
ians and into our economy
through our Offices of Un-
employmentCompensation,
Workforce Services and
Early Learning to help meet
critical needs during this
extraordinary time," said
Agency Director Cynthia
R. Lorenzo. "Through our
Unemployment Compensa-
tion Division alone, we have
already paid $944.5 million
in benefits funded through
the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act to 752,377
Floridians, resulting in a
positive impact of $1.5 bil-
lion to Florida's economy."


The St George Island Fire Department quickly extinguished this burning golf cart.


Golf cart explodes on St. George Island


By Lois Swoboda
A golf cart belonging to Larry
Stone, of St. George Island, burst
into flames Aug. 15 on East Gorrie
Drive.
Pinki Jackel said she noticed the
fire from her home and immediately
called Island Fire Chief Jay Abbott


and the Sheriff's Department. Jack-
el said Abbott responded with the
foam truck in less than five minutes
and extinguished the flames.
"We were glad the wind wasn't
blowing," Jackel said. "This is a per-
fect example of how valuable our
volunteer fire departments really
are."


At the Aug. 18 county commis-
sion meeting, Abbott said it cost
about $400 to extinguish the fire. He
said that road was closed for a short
time because of the blaze.
The cause of the fire is believed
to have been an electrical short
which ignited gasoline in the cart's
tank.

The Times | A3


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

At a meeting Aug. 19,
organizers of the Arts
in Medicine program at
George E. Weems Memo-
rial Hospital announced
that they will launch the
first projects in Septem-
ber.
Arts in Medicine (AIM)
will take a two-pronged
approach to interfacing
with the community. Bed-
side arts, headed by Liz
Sisung will bring the arts
to patients in hospitals and
assisted living facilities as
well as to shut-ins. Sisung
said she is partnering with
ElderCare Services, Har-
bor Breeze Retirement
Center in Carrabelle and
St. James Bay Rehabili-
tation Center as well as
Weems.
Programs provided to
patients will include "Play-
back Theatre," an exercise
where actors listen to a
patient's story and then
retell it back to him or her.
Sisung is seeking volun-
teers to form a troupe of


character clowns to visit
persons, places and events
and "bring a smile and a
ray of sunshine."
Volunteers will also re-
cord oral history recount-
ed by seniors as a part of
bedside arts. AIM hopes
to hold a two-day seminar
next month on recording
oral history.
The other arm of the
AIM initiative is commu-
nity outreach headed by
Joe Taylor. He said he has
already arranged for a six-
week program in Lanark
Village this fall. Partici-
pants will meet at Chillas
Hall and learn about com-
bining photography, col-
lage and scraphooking.
Taylor said he is seeking a
volunteer knowledgeable
about scraphooking tech-
niques.
Ongoing programs
have already begun in
Apalachicola. Jeanette
Taylor is leading a Zumba
dance class at the Armory
on Tuesday and Thurs-
day nights. Beginning this
week, Leslie Wallace Coon
will teach classes in draw-


ing and pottery at the Cot-
ton Exchange.
Taylor said he plans to
schedule classes at the
Eastpoint Firehouse as
well. Belly dancing and Tai
Chi are being considered
as possible subjects.
If you are interested in
volunteering or teaching
or taking a class, contact
Taylor at 323-0176.
The AIM Program is
a collaborative effort be-
tween the Florida Divi-
sion of Cultural Affairs,
Shands Arts in Medicine
and Weems Memorial Hos-
pital.
Apalachicola is the lat-
est community chosen by
Shands and the State of
Florida Division of Cultural
Affairs to develop and arts
in medicine program and
the first in a rural setting.
Shands AIM was found-
ed in 1990 at Shands Hos-
pital at the University of
Florida, as a multidisci-
plinary organization, with
programs in the visual,
literary, musical, and per-
formance arts. AIM serves

of all ages, their families,
visitors, health care pro-
viders, the Gainesville and
statewide communities.
The program is focused on
transforming healthcare


environments through the
arts, and providing lead-
ership for hospital arts
programs throughout the
nation.
AIM has active pro-


grams in three hospitals
and numerous outpatient
clinics, and is known in-
ternationally as one of the
leaders in the field of arts
in healthcare.


Special to The Times
Nesting season for three
species of endangered sea
turtles is well under way on
the sandy beaches along
Florida's Atlantic and Gulf
of Mexico shores.
Eggs from threatened
loggerhead, endangered
green, and endangered
leatherback sea turtles
have been incubating in
the warm sand for 45 days
or more. Soon baby sea
turtles, or hatchlings, will
begin their journey up
through the sand, across
the beach, into the waves
and across miles of open
water out to the weed
lines. There they will feed
and grow, and many log-
gerheads will return to
Florida's coastal waters as
juvenile and subadults to
feed.
Female sea turtles often
return to nest on the same
sandy beaches where they
hatched. Florida's beach-
front residents and visitors
can help those hatchlings


over the open ocean as
they move across the dark
nighttime beach."
Beachfront lights,
bright flashlights and lan-
terns on the beach can
confuse them, causing fe-
male sea turtles to leave
without nesting, and adults
and hatchlings to become
trapped on the beach. The
FWC urges beach resi-
dents and visitors to keep
the beaches dark by man-
aging beachfront lighting.
Turn off lights that are
not needed for human
safety, and focus other
lights directly where they
are needed, limiting the
amount of light spill or
trespass onto the nesting
beach.
Shield light sources and
use appropriate bulbs such
as red or amber LEDs or
bug bulbs. These bulbs
emit a long-wavelength
light that is less likely to
confuse or disorient adult
or hatchling sea turtles on
the beach.
If you must use a flash-


light on the beach, keep
the beam focused on the
ground in front of you. Do
not point it down the beach
or toward the water.
In addition to the shield
offer, a limited number
of amber LED bulbs are
available for beachfront
property owners who
agree to manage their
lights to minimize light
trespass onto adjacent sea
turtle nesting beaches in
those counties.
To find out more about
this program and to see
if you qualify to receive
shields or LED bulbs free
of charge, contact Chris
Milne at 561-575-5408.
If you see eggs, an ex-
posed nest, hatchling sea
turtles, or an injured or
dead turtle on the beach,
please contact the FWC at
888-404-FWCC (404-3922).
Do not handle or collect
eggs or remove hatchlings
from the beach. All such
activities with sea turtles
require a special permit
from the FWC.


Area residents
should continue to
prepare for an active
storm season by stock-
ing up on supplies and
making sure that a
family evacuation plan
is in place and family
members understand

Storms often pro-
duce unpredictable
gusty winds causing
increased blow down
from trees and other
vegetation. Accumula-
tion of this debris left
over time can increase
wildfire risk, but the
risk can be lowered by
cleaning up this debris
Options to consider
are cutting branches
to manageable lengths
and leaving them by
the curb for removal.
Local ordinances
permit outdoor burn-


ing. Create burn piles 8
feet or less in diameter.
Piles must be located
at least 50 feet from the
road and 25feet from
houses and forestland,
and at least 150 feet
from other homes or
structures. Florida
law prohibits the burn-
ing of green debris.
Therefore, piles must
be cured (dead, brown).
Flag off an area where
debris can be safely
piled until conditions
are favorable to burn
or haul away.
Help prevent unnec-
essary wildfire risk by
keeping property clean
of all debris this storm
season. For more infor-
mation please contact

Along with most all of the
high school teachers, I worked
until 7 p.m. on Thursday. It was
high school registration, and
offered a terrific opportunity to
meet parents. At the end of the
day I was exhausted.
I made a quick stop at the
store; the clerk took one glance
and said, "You look really tired."
What? To my ears, it sounded
like, "You look
awful." She didn't
intend to sound
mean, it's just
That, like many
Women, I have
spent a lifetime
.._being unduly
concerned about
RED WHITE my looks.
AND ROUXI am a woman
Denise Roux of a certain age,
and the raw
material Iface
in the mirror every morning
presents a continually evolving
set of challenges. Even though
I have let my hair go gray, and
stopped the artificial nails, going
without makeup is not even a
consideration.
A few years back, I was doing
a bit of baking on Saturday
morning. Sure enough, one
essential ingredient was
missing. It was probably baking
powder, since the cans in my
cupboard all expire before I can
use them up.
I dashed to the Piggly Wiggly
sans cosmetics, although I did
take time to put on a bra. One of


and Atom Bomb.
I spent all of my disposable
income on mascara, eye shadow,
eyeliner, and false eyelashes
with their own little mini-tube of
adhesive. When you are 13, skin
care and foundation are not an
issue.
I sat in front of the mirror for
hours, painting and gluing and
preening. By the time I reached
the age that Mama would let
me go to the Community House
for Friday and Saturday night
canteen and dances, my face
was ready.
I never really thought about
whether or not the boys liked
it. I just knew I loved the ritual


the black eyeliner and mascara.
Go with a look more burnished
and bronze. I yearn to say, "Girl,
deal with those eyebrows!"
It is not in the curriculum
and, besides, what 16-year-old
female would listen to a 56- year-
old lady?
I did experience vindication
one day last year. I always ate
lunch with a small group of
middle school kids. I explained
to them a problem I had with
cafeteria duty. About 10 minutes
before the bell, a group of
students would always gather
around the doors. Inevitably,
there would be pushing and
poking and genuine potential for
mass disruption. I
tried standing in the
gh I have middle of everything,
hail g hoping that the mere
presence of a teacher
IStopped would cause them to
:0 nl disperse. Insteadthe
cluster of students
Without grew larger.
Snot even One of my middle
school lunch buddies
6101100. offered up his opinion.
S"Ms. Roux, I know
why all those kids
are there. It's 'cause you're so
pretty."
I predict great success with
the ladies for this young man.

and Carrabelle Times. 'lb reach

and the result. I did
big fancy points at
the ends of my eyes,
like the girl in the
Progressive Insurance
commercials. I used
eyeliner to draw
extended lower lash
lines. I even used
sequmns.
I never pierced or
tattooed anything,
although I did use the
false eyelash adhesive


my students was at the register
when I bolted in. He looked up
and with great concern shouted,
"Ms. Roux, what happened!"
It was a defining moment.
Since then, I have never
appeared publicly with a nude
face. I do have a cosmetic-lite
regimen for weekends which
includes only moisturizer, matte
powder, eyebrow pencil, blush,
eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick. I
can do it all in five minutes.
I think I might be addicted to
makeup, and there is no 12-step
program to help. I have been
overweight for most of my life,
but I could still create a pretty
face. It all began when I was a


pre-teen. Mother had decreed
that I couldn't wear lipstick
in public until I was 14. Other
friends got the go-ahead at 13.
I remember seething when I
saw those glossy lips on my
classmates. I had to wait another
whole year!
I began haunting the front
half of the second aisle of the
Apalachee 5-and-10 cent store
on the corner of Market and
Avenue D downtown, where
Tamara's is today. They had a
full line of dime store makeup
with Maybelline as the top shelf
selection. They also had rows of
tiny perfume bottles, filled with
the scents of Evening in Paris


to glue pearls onto my ears so
that everyone would think they
were pierced.
Today, I look at my girls in
the classroom. Some, like me,
obviously have a daily regime
that varies only slightly. Some
are all spiffed out one day and
look like hang-over city the next.
I want to tell the blonde to ditch

*Questions whether donations

*Failure to hold regular
yearly elections every January, as
specified in the original Articles
of Incorporation of the Seafood
Workers, dated March 24, 1982.
*Failure to hold regular monthly
meeting open to the public, and
to notice those meetings in the
Apalachicola Times and Oyster
Radio, as required.
*Failure to keep minutes of

*Failure to inform all officers

contractual decisions made by the
president and secretary.
*Failure to "ensure an audit
of the funds disbursed under (the
Oyster Relay) program is conducted
annually," as specified in a 2006
FCSWA memo.
FCSWA officers Tanya James,
Bruce Rotella and Billy Dalton
have been doing their best to set
the Seafood Workers back on the
right legal and moral footing. But
some others have been sweeping
problems under the rug.
Bottom line: It's time for a formal,


public election of Seafood Workers
officers, as the founders of the group
called for. The meeting should be
held in the Eastpoint Firehouse;
publicized in advance in the local
paper and on radio, and open to all
who attend (though only seafood
workers would vote).
The seafood workers of Franklin
County and I mean the real
seafood workers who actually work
on the Bay, shuck oysters, clean fish,
and drive trucks deserve better
than the current situation. They
deserve elections, accountability
and transparency, not secrecy and
questionable administration.

By Zachary Word

Franklin County sophomore Adrian
Hendels has art in his blood.
His uncle is the renowned woodcarver
Earnest Hand, who brings to life animals
out of deadhead cypress.
And Hendels has
developed into a young
-artist in his own right,
working in pencil or
charcoal to create drawings
such as the one above
of President Obama. He
ADRIANI found several images in
HENIDELS magazines, some realistic
and some animated
drawings, and drew on them to create his
art.
"I took a few pictures of him and I made
it my own," said Hendels, son of George and
Alisa Hendels, of Apalachicola.
Hendels draws in his spare time, and
sees a possible future in drawing. "I usually
do it at night, when I have time to myself,"
said Hendels, who started while a child
and pursued his drawing more actively
while in seventh grade. "I could just look at
someone and draw them.

On Sept. 26, 2008 the Florida
Division of Corporations
involuntarily dissolved the Franklin
County Seafood Workers Association
for failure to file even a simple
annual report. It was due May 1
of last year, and when the state
dissolved the Seafood Workers, that
called into question their ability to
continue operating.
The FCSWA did finally file the
necessary form later last year, and
were reinstated as a legitimate
corporation. That might be the end
of the story except that a check with
the Division of Corporations this
Monday reveals that once again the
Seafood Workers have failed to file
that simple form in 2009, meaning
the state will likely dissolve the
corporation again next month if the
document isn't filed.
But the failure to file with the
state is just the tip of the iceberg in
terms of problems with the Seafood
Workers. The problems include:

Leonard Bembry, state
representative for District
10, told county commission-
ers on Aug. 18 that the last
legislative session had been
"extremely contentious."
He said District 10,
which extends across 10
counties, from Eastpoint to
Levy County to the south
and Columbia County to the
north, is the largest Florida
district in land area as well
as the poorest. The average
mean income is 60 percent
of the mean income for
Florida, he said.
Bembry said the ses-
sion's conflicts were due to
increasing state debt and
the need to balance the bud-
get. He said Florida's debt
had doubled since 2002, and
that rural counties were
affected more by the eco-
nomic downturn than urban
areas.
"We are still facing sig-


nificant shortfalls, but I be-
lieve the situation will right
itself fairly quickly now," he
said. "We are on the way
to getting a lot of solutions
we didn't have in the past.
I have put a bill forward to
publish our state budget. I
was in office three and a
half months before I saw a
copy of it. Next year, I want
it to go on the internet."
Bembry praised the
county commission saying,
"The more adequate job you
do the better off the people
are."
Chairman Smokey Par-
rish thanked Bembry, add-
ing that "it is very rare we
get a representative down
here."
Bembry said he cared
deeply about his constitu-
ents and invited everyone
to visit his offices in Madi-
son, Perry and Tallahassee.

has announced the
creation of a shellfish
harvesting area in
Wakulla County.
The new St. Marks
Shellfish Harvest-
ing Area consists of a
4,111-acre condition-
ally approved area and
a 5,264-acre prohibited
area. The St. Marks
Shellfish Harvesting
Area has an antici-
pated opening date of
Sept. 1, 2009, provided
that rainfall volumes
are not excessive.
"This is a positive
development for oys-
termen in Florida,"
Bronson said. "Our
staff in the Division of
Aquaculture worked
with local oyster-
men on the multiyear
project. While the St.
Marks Shellfish Har-
vesting Area is not a
large area, it does pro-
vide additional oyster

ously existed."
Opening and clos-
ing of the St. Marks
shellfish harvesting
area is based on lo-
cal rainfall and river
discharge. Too much
rain brings potentially
harmful bacteria into
the area, which trig-
gers temporary bans
on harvesting in that
area.

LETTE RS from page A4
Congressman Allen Boyd's remarks
that seem to support their initiative. An
included comment implied that drilling
would be done in 60-foot depths and thus
not within sight of shore. I doubt that
and would suspect that drilling platforms
would be in place wherever oil supplies
were suggested so long as it was within
the oil lease borders.
Additionally, is this drilling initiative
slated for a secluded coastline area
that was selected intentionally to
avoid objection from the few and small
shoreline homes?
Moreover, if the leased oil drilling
sea bottom contained oil reservoirs, it
would not matter whether shoreline
residential interests objected to oil
drilling and platforms or not. They would
be legally authorized to place platforms in
accordance with their need.
Finally, dependent upon the lease
border, the "Forgotten Coast" bottom
deepens markedly beginning about the
Shell Point and Carrabelle area and an
oil platform in these waters could be in 60
feet of water and no more than about four
miles out from shore, or just beyond Dog
Island and St. George Island continuing
as far west as the Florida-Alabama
border.
I would be inclined to postpone any
offshore oil drilling in Florida waters in
favor of rapidly advancing technology
that will soon preclude that need and
instead promote better efficiencies in fuel
consumption during the interim.

old-time business owners on the

I built my house here on the island to
get away from the larger communities
where too many people wanted to tell
everyone else what to think and what to
do or not do. The Island has been free

VICIOUS 11ate mail
As a result of my comments
expressed in an Aug. 3 edition of the
Times, I received a vicious hate letter
sent from "Concerned Citizens of
Carrabelle ,,
My own letter to the editor highlighted
the failure of the elected representatives
of Carrabelle to attend the recent
Progress Energy public hearing about
their proposed 31 percent rate increase.
Unlike the county and the city of
Apalachicola, the residents of Carrabelle
had no official voice to speak in their
behalf at the local hearing
The hate letter said that I had
overstepped my "non-local" rights by
expressing "criticism of our elected
officials." I was told to "go back where I
came from, and/or to shut the f--k up!"
Of course, the "Concerned Citizens of


Carrabelle" had First Amendment rights
to express such opinions, just as had been
my privilege in my original letter,
The "Concerned Citizens of
Carrabelle" did not have the right to
defame me, however, with unfounded
and untrue allegations about me and
my family. Hate crimes are taken very
seriously these days.
More than 200 citizens of Carrabelle
voted for me in each of the two mayoral
elections. I believe their support clearly
indicated their sincere concerns
for Carrabelle and their wishes for
constructive and productive change. With
the help of a dedicated and supportive
commission and the outstanding
guidance and inspiration of City Manager
John McInnis, our heartfelt efforts from
2005 to 2007 have continued to benefit the
city well beyond our terms. Important
and positive actions were taken for the
employees and conditions in the city, as
well as for all those who live, work and
play here.
I was very grateful for the opportunity
to have served the city of Carrabelle
as mayor. It will always be one of the
proudest periods of my life.
As to the "Concerned Citizens of
Carrabelle" so filled with fear and hate,
I return this old Irish wish..."May those
that love us, love us; and for those that
don't love us, may God turn their hearts.
And if he can't turn their hearts, may he
turn their ankles so we may know them
by their limping."

Steve Rash wrote in his letter to the

with him. From the time the county
commission held public hearings on the
new souvenir shop, we had local business
owners trying to block the building of this
establishment.
Even after the shop was opened, a
columnist for the now defunct Franklin
Chronicle railed in his columns about the
size of the building, and the merchandise
they sold. I have been a part-time
resident since 1986 and since 2002 a
fulltime resident of the island. I don't

As much as I liked Tom Hoffer and the
Chronicle, I was not sad to see the new
ownership of the Chronicle fold. They had
become a sounding board for the few here
on the island that were only looking for

As Mr. Rash wrote, most of the
local businesses on the island were

vegetation as needed.
And they took in stride a
setback just a couple weeks
ago, when a water leak
undid lots of completed
work. But in the end the
school was ready.
"I was extremely pleased
on the efforts of parents
and staff and community to
have this all come togeth-
er," said Hungerford. "You
don't find this in big cities.
Small towns are absolutely
wonderful."

Vertical alignment,
strengthened state
PartnershiD *

With a staff that was set by
early in the summer, Oehlert
said the beginning of school
for the nearly 900 Franklin
County students went very
well.
"All the teachers seemed
upbeat at the end of the day,"
he said. "There were a lot
of high fives as they were
leaving from the elementary
and middle school students.
Everything seemed pretty
positive."
Oehlert began the year
with a brief pep talk in the
gymnasium to high school-
ers. "I told them one of the
goals is to make the high
school experience more fun,
but the burden lies on them,"
he said.
One dynamic that will be
continuing at the school will
be Franklin County's part-
nership with the Florida De-
partment of Education. Niko-
lai Vitti, last year's regional
director for school improve-
ment, has been promoted,
and replaced by Stewart
Greenberg, who oversees
a handful of coordinators in
reading, science and math
who assist teachers with
curriculum improvements
and instructional techniques
"They're here to help
us in any way they can and
they'll make commitments
in any way they can," said
Oehlert. "They're going to be


a big help."
The school is focusing on
vertical alignment of the cur-
riculum for grades 3 to 12,
Oehlert said, meaning the
focus will be on working with
teachers by subject matter,
regardless of the grade level
they teach, so as to build on
growth from one year to the
next.
Teachers in grades kin-
dergarten through second
will be horizontally aligned,
with teacher working togeth-
er to tailor their teaching
across subject lines for these
youngsters.
The vertical alignment
begins with the third, fourth
and fifth grades, Oehlert
said, with the self-contained
classroom having given way
to a focus by departments.
Audrey Gay will teach sci-
ence and math to these age
groups, while Pay Hender-
son will teach reading and
Melanie Humble social stud-
ies and language arts.
"The kids move to them;
they're not staying with the
same teacher," Oehlert said.
There's about a half doz-
en new teachers, including
Jay Pearlman, a graduate
of Harvard College and New
York Uni-

Hungerford said the
school has decided to elimi-
nate the art specialist pro-
gram, which had two full-
time teachers. Instead the
school will have classroom
teachers, with the assis-
tance of volunteers, han-
dling art, music and physi-
cal education.


New teachers are Ruth
Monahan, originally from
Connecticut where she
taught first grade, who will
be teaching Kindergarten,
and Teri DeLaney for third
grade. DeLaney was at
ABC two years ago, as Teri
Mathews, when she taught
fourth grade. "She then
taught third grade in Tal-
lahassee and is delighted to
be back," said Hungerford.
Three teachers have
embarked on new career
directions. Cassandra Da-
vis, a third grade teacher,
moved to Tampa to teach
at a charter school there,
and Beth Childress, who
taught second grade, relo-
cated to south Florida and
is teaching pre-school there
while returning to graduate
school. Allison Elliott, who
taught fifth grade last year,


has left and is planning on
going to nursing school.
Melanie Amison, who
was a math specialist and
an RTI (response to inter-
vention) teacher, is back
in the classroom teaching
sixth grade math and sci-
ence. Leeann Fleming, who
had taught those subjects,
will now be the fifth grade
teacher.
Tanya Joanas will be the
other sixth grade teacher.
Hungerford said the school
won't replace Amison's for-
mer position.
Whitney Martina, who
replaced Bobbie Jean Tay-
lor last year when she went
on maternity leave, will now
be teaching third grade, as
will DeLaney.

a regular weekly column,
said he once had a chance
to ask Nichols what he
would want said of him
after he died.
"He told me 'I would like
the people ofApalachicola
to know that no person has
loved Apalachicola more
than I do,"' Lee said. "And I
think that's true."
Born Sept. 2, 1920, the
middle of three sons, Nich-
ols came into the world at
the home of his parents,
Garouphalia and John Nich-
ols, and was delivered by Dr.
George Weems.
And that was a time
[about 1900--0] that you
walked down those streets,
you couldn't hear any Eng-
lish spoken. It was either
Greek or Italian," he told
Paith Eidse, author of the
"Voice of the Apalachicola,"
a book which graced the
back of the sanctuary during
the service.
"Down here, around
where the courthouse is
located now, there were
thr Ialiar b sers kn '

When it firstecame out of the
oven, thoselItalians would
open it up and put olive oil
and black pepper on it. But
after two days it got so hard
they used to call it bricks,
and there was a Greek bak-
ery in the area too," he said,
ever the colorful historian.
"There were a lot of coffee
shops around. There were a
lot of restaurants downtown
that were Greek-owned.,,
Like his older brother
Nick, and his younger
brother Photis, Nichols grew
up working in his parent's
Economy Cash Store, which
carried a variety of grocer-
ies and dry goods. Later,
after serving overseas in
World War II, Nichols would
briefly attend the Univer-
sity of Florida, and then
returned to run the store
with Nick.
"If you went into his
store, if you didn't buy one
thing, you bought another,"
said Annette Pagan. "That
was like our Wal-Mart. You
didn't have no way to go out
of town."
Pagan said Nichols would
pay the neighborhood chil-
dren a quarter or two a day


and tools may be difficult
or impossible and that the
use of consumables is not
unlimited."
Cook is a 1956 graduate
ofApalachicola's Chapman
High School after which
he pursued a career in
the Navy, graduating from
the US Naval Academy in
Annapolis, Maryland. To-
day, a retired naval officer
with more than 20 years of
leadership experience as a
commanding officer, Cook
is involved in several com-
munity, church and civic
groups including Apala-
chicola City Commission,
Apalachicola Planning
& Zoning Board, Trinity
Episcopal Church, Apala-
chicola Area Historical So-
ciety and, most recently,
the Franklin County Tour-
ist Development Council.
As the former chair-
man of the Apalachicola
Planning & Zoning Com-
mission and member for


five years, Cook has seen
the city's planning process
up close and personal.
While on P & Z, he helped
shepherd many of the
city's various comprehen-
sive plan amendments,
updates to the city's land
development regulations
and assorted other plan-
ning tasks, often travel-
ing to Tallahassee to meet
with state planning and
environmental officials to
discuss local planning is-
sues.
Because P & Z acts as
the city's Architectural
Review Committee, Cook
has personally been in-
volved in the review and
discussion of many his-
torical renovations. Un-
der his guidance, the city
adopted historical design
guidelines which help pro-
vide structure for making
historical architecture de-
cisions in the city. Cook is
a member of the historical


society and an advocate
for historical preservation
within the city. Cook is also
an advocate for suitable
development that creates
jobs while preserving heri-
tage and area resources.
Frank Cook believes in
maintaining a small com-
munity attitude where
neighbors care about each
other. Cook would like to
see the small-town atmo-
sphere preserved while
embracing positive change
that enhances many of the
city's existing attributes,
such as the Community
Gardens program and
Project Impact, programs
that have helped unite the
city and strengthen the
community commitment
to education.
"In short, we must use
your money and assets as
if they were on loan to us
in the city government be-
cause they truly are," said
Cook.

we've acquired through

(Within our budget)
I'm hoping our friends
and relatives on low or
fixed incomes can afford
water and sewer in the
coming years. I'm hop-
ing we have an active fire
department with function-
ing equipment to protect
our property and maintain
our insurance rates. I'm
hoping we can continue to
fund our various children's,
recreation and senior citi-
zen programs all over the
city, and can influence our


county government to ex-
pand our ambulance cover-
age and access to medical
care. I hope we can solve
our ongoing stormwater
problems before the next
hurricane, and I'm hoping
that trash collection in all
our neighborhoods can be-
come a priority.
The county sheriff has
asked us all to lock our
doors because crime is
rampant. I hope I can work
with all law enforcement so
we can lock up the crimi-
nals instead of our doors.
Our mayor, Van John-


son, has encouraged many
great community programs
and I hope I can help him
and the other commis-
sioners as we try to return
prosperity to Apalachicola
by working with our local
business and civic orga-
nizations and tapping into
the great well of knowledge
and experience that they
represent.
Most of all, I hope that
all of you will honor our ac-
tive duty service people,

to distribute sales flyers on
the Hill. "Every kid on the
Hill was giving away sales
fliers," she said. "He was a
good guy.
Later in business for
himself, and part-owner
with his brothers of Apala-
chicola's drive-in theatre,
Nichols entered politics at
the age of 35, when he be-
came a city commissioner.
"The mayor at that time
was Gryk d.Hnriksen,

resigned to go back to lab
work for the U.S. Quarter-
master. During the war, he
was operating a tent plant
in Apalachicola. So I took
his place. That was for two
years."
Nichols stayed away
from politics during the
1960s, as he and his wife
Olga began their family. "I
sat out until 1971, then I ran
[and] was mayor for four
years. In 1975, I ran again,
then I sat out again [until]
May 1987," he said.
In all, Nichols would
serve 16 years as mayor,


and be responsible for sev-
eral important changes.
Perhaps the best summary
of his accomplishments was
contained in a brochure
for his last reelection cam-.
paign, which was inserted in
the program for the funeral
service.
It read as follows: .
"As a native of Apalachic-
ola, I have always been in-
terested in the welfare and
future groh of this city.

Sweeps kes ca k II
tries to scam senior
A con artist called an elderly 7
Carrabelle woman last week
and attempted to trick her into
sending money to a nonexistent
sweepstakes.
Ruth Martin, 73, of Carrabelle
received a call on Thursday from
a woman claiming to represent
the International Sweepstakes.
The caller, who said her name
was Linda Mills, told Martin
she had won $525,000 in the


International Sweepstakes
and that check #1588 had been
deposited in the North American
Bank in her name.
Mills said Martin needed to
send $3,000 to activate the prize,
and when Martin expressed
doubt, she was told she could
have a 50 percent "senior citizen
discount" and only needed to
send $1,500.
When Martin continued to
question the caller's motives, she
was told she could call 800-321-
3333 to verify the claim. This toll
free number is an active AT&T
land line. A Times employee
called it numerous times and it
was never answered.


Sheriff Skip Shiver said he
was familiar with similar scams
practiced on the internet but
that he had not heard of people
receiving phone calls.
A Web site located at http://
800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-
321-3333 is asking persons who
have received calls from this
number to report them. Shiver
said he also wants to hear from
people who have received similar
calls.
"I was tempted," said Martin.
"It would be nice to win that
much money but I knew when
she told me to send money it was
a hoax."

Mayor over the years.
I am a retired mer-
chant; a World War II
veteran, seeing service
in the Army Air Force in
Africa and Europe; pres-
ently own my own real
estate office; and every
week I write a column
"Apalachicola Diary" in
the Times.
Some of the many
achievements under my
leadership include two
units of public housing,
totaling 54 units; city-
wide zoning; acquiring
200 acres Sheip property
in 1972 resulting in cre-
ation of special conser-
vatory district at Scipio
Creek, resulting in the
DNR and Estuarine fa-
cilities being built there
creating new jobs; acquir-
ing and restoration of
the Raney and Carriage
Houses; two fire trucks,
and new fire house; build-
ing two docks at Battery
and Lafayette Parks;
building new gazebo at
Lafayette Park; following
through in completion of
Chapman Gardens and
Scipio Commercial Work
Basin.
I am interested in a
city-wide beautification
program, a cultural mu-
seum, more recreational
facilities, and follow-
through on new indus-
tries at Apalachicola Air
Port, and new sewer and
water needs.
Your vote and support
will be appreciated.

Profits from recycling
are down but, even so, the
benefits are two-fold.
Van Johnson, the coun-
ty's director of recycling
and solid waste, said eco-
nomic hard times have
affected recycling no less
than other aspects of daily
life. The state had been al-
locating $277,000 annually
to support the recycling
program; this year, the
grant was cut by $200,000.
The value of some re-
cyclables has dropped as
well, but Johnson said in
spite of this, the benefits of
recycling are great. Stop-
ping to put a newspaper or
a soda can in the recycle
bin saves space in a landfill
and saves the environment
from the harmful effects of
logging, paper production,
mining and refining ore.
Every ton of plastic that
is recycled saves the equiv-
alent of two people's energy
use for a year, the amount
of water used by a person
over two month's time and
almost 2000 pounds of oil.
Florida has mandated
that larger counties s recycle
a minimum of 75 percent of


refuse, but because Frank-
lin is small, residents are
only required to recycle 30
percent. This may change
with upcoming legislation.
Johnson said that recy-
cling is more of a challenge
in Franklin County because
of the small population.
"If everyone recycled,
we could have a complete
program and recycle many
more kinds of plastic," he
said. "But as things are
now, it takes so long to ac-
cumulate enough of some
plastics, like for instance,
plastic produce bags that
by the time we accumulate
enough to sell, the material
has degraded to the point
where it is no longer sale-
able."
Because of this, the lo-
cal recycling program con-
centrates on a few items.
Cardboard, which brings
in $80 a truck load, is the
most valuable commodity.
Newspaper sells for $10 a
bale as does plastic.
Johnson said his opera-
tion only recycles No. l and
No. 2 plastic, i.e. milk jugs
and water or soda bottles.
Plastic containers are usu-
ally marked with this rat-
ing if you are unsure if an
item can be recycled. It is


helpful to remove lids from
plastic containers.
The program also recy-
cles both tin and aluminum
cans.
Glass bottles are recy-
clable but not sheet glass
or light bulbs. Johnson
asked people not to dis-
card these in recycle bins,
as any glass other than
bottles can cause an entire
load to be rejected. Once
again, removing metal lids
or plastic makes the land-
fill's job simpler.
According to the direc-
tor, most people who re-
cycle in this county are
locals. He said his biggest
problem with the recycling
program is people who
dump household garbage
into recycle bins.
"In some cases, 80 per-
cent of what we find in a
bin is garbage," he said.
"And in many areas, that
leads to the added problem
of foraging bears."
Johnson said the next
Hazardous Waste drop-off
at the landfill will be Satur-
day, Nov. 7 from 9 a.m. until
noon. During this event,
the landfill accepts old ap-
pliances and computers.

Seahawks Coach Josh
Wright is confident he'll be
leading an energized group
of athletes into a pre-sea-
son battle Friday night in
Monticello against Jeffer-
son County.
And how the season will
go, well that comes next.
"Our team goal is to
come home with the ball-
game and let them get a
taste of what we worked so
hard for," he said.
It won't be easy, as the
Seahawks are going up a
potential Div. I college re-
cruit in junior running back
Devondrick Nealy.
But Wright knows that
on the opposite side of the
field will be another first-
year head coach, Willie
Spears, an old colleague
of his when he coached at
Rutherford.
"I feel I have a very good
coaching staff," he said.
"They not only have knowl-

payeedofa cgacme~d vt n t

they relate their coaching
points to their players."
The Seahawk players
who took the field Friday
night in the Crimson and
White scrimmage im-
pressed local fans, who
filled up a large chunk of
the bleachers.
"We met and exceeded
our effort for our summer
workout expectations,"
Wright said. "Not only the
athletes but the coaches,
who were unpaid and who
gave their time to be there
because they believe in the
program."
Wright cites two play-
ers, both named captains,
who he said have played a
key role in leading the 34
varsity players, senior line-
man Chase Richards and
junior quarterback Dalin
Modican,
"Tho se guys are juiced,"
he said. They lead by ex-
ample, by being there and
encouraging and getting
them all there. Dalin's the
triggerman and the signal
caller.

"We're going in a little

said. "But we'll come off

We'll have a lot of misdi-

Wright plans on a hy-

between the wing and the
I, with lots of ball control
and power running. "We
find a way to get our play-

Defensively, the mind-
set is "bend but don't
break. We don't want to
give up any big plays. May-
be they'll make a mistake.

lineman Tydron Wynn and
senior fullback DJ Lane
who has been running hard
this summer.
Sophomore tailback
Trakel Turrell is small, but
a speedster, and Wright
sees him using his skills
to maximum advantage.
"He's a great blocker and a
team player," he said. "We
don't need selfish players."

of other players are being
counted to turn around the
last two winless seasons.
But, Wright stressed,
no one's job is secure, and


he is watching to see who
steps up.
"We continue to evalu-
ate players," he said.
Wright said he has fo-
cused on turning around
the mental focus of the
team. "They have a valid
point (when they say) 'Why
should I do anything when
all I've known is how to
lose?"' he said. "They are
having to learn why they
run extra sprints, why they
commit at the level they do.
They won't get the proof
as to why until they start
reaping the benefits.
"The 'why' is learning
how to win and learning to
compete," Wright said. "We
want to be able to line up,
execute everything we've
been working on and be
able to show this commu-
nity a great product."
One potential weak spot
going into the season is the

Franklin County will
host the nationally ac-
claimed Wild & Scenic En-
vironmental Film Festival
On Tour from Saturday
to Sept. 5 throughout the
county.
Organized by the Apala-
chicola Riverkeeper, the
week-long film festival will
feature award-winning
films and a children's pro-
gram designed to raise
awareness about environ-
mental issues nationwide.
The films will be shown
in the Dixie Theatre in
Apalachicola, the Car-
rabelle City Auditorium,
Florida State University's
Coastal and Marine Labo-
ratory in St. Teresa, the
Volunteer Fire Department
on St. George Island and
the 'lI~pelo Theater in We-
wahitchka.
Last year, the River-
keeper hosted a similar
successful one-day festival
inTallahassee.Riverkeeper
Director Andy Smith said
the success of last year's
event motivated organizers
to expand the film festival
to the coast.


"Everyone loved the
films for their inspirational,
innovative, effective and
often humorous approach
to stubborn problems," he
said. "They make you feel
good about what we can do
to make our world a better
place for everyone."
The festival brings to-
gether a selection of films
from the annual festival
the second week of Janu-
ary in Nevada City, Calif.
"The films tell a story about
our planet, highlighting is-
sues, providing solutions
and giving call to action,"
Tour Manager Susie Sut-
phin said. "Their collective
energy empowers commu-
nities to initiate conversa-
tions that can bring about
compromise and collabora-
tive efforts that positively
impact our wild places."
Some ofthe films include:

'WATER FRONT' 22 MINUTES
What if you lived by the
largest body of freshwater
in the world but no longer
could afford to use it? Resi-
dents of Highland Park,
Mich., known as the birth-


place of the auto industry,
have received water bills
as high as $10,000, have
had their water turned off
and their homes foreclosed
and are struggling to keep
water, a basic human right,
from becoming privatized.

'GORILLA IN THE
GREENHOUSE: GREAT PACIFIC
GARBAGE PATCH' 8 MINUTES
Follow four kids and a
green gorilla as they over-
come a demented plot by
Dr. Morlon Hufflebot to
create an island of plastic
bags in the Pacific Ocean.
Animation.


'ONCE UPON A TIDE' 9:15 MINUTES
A spell has been cast
causing people to forget
about the ocean and its im-
portance to our lives. But
with a young girl, we em-
bark on a fantastic journey,
where orcas swim through
cornfields, scientists talk
in rhyme, and the audience
discovers how the ocean
touches all parts of our
Earth and nurtures our ex-
istence.


'PAPA TORTUGA' 20 MINUTES
Fernando shows that
one person CAN make a
difference. His efforts in
Tecolutla, Vera Cruz, Mex-
ico, have helped to save
the endangered Lora sea
turtles from extinction.

"The festival will pro-
vide a refreshing look at
what folks in other part of
our nation and world face
and solve in their efforts to
create sustainable ecologi-
cal and economic environ-
ments," said Smith.
The Apalachicola
Riverkeeperis celebrating
its 10th anniversary this
year, working with con-
cerned citizens to protect
the Apalachicola ecosys-
tem and the livelihood of
people who depend on it
for a living.
The film festival is
sponsored, in part, by the
Franklin County Tourist
Development Council and
national sponsors such as
Patagonia, Clif Bar, Os-
prey Packs, Sierra Nevada
Brewing, Tom's of Maine,

On Saturday, Lynn Wilson and the
Coombs House Inn hosted the Dog Days
of Summer to raise money for the Franklin
County Humane Society. A doggy fashion
show and beautiful cat contest drew a dozen
participants.
The event was successful on several
levels. The Humane Society raised over $300
in donations, including $110 from the Philaco
Women's Club's conservation committee
and two of the shelter dogs attending the
fete found a forever home. Petunia, a black
lab mix went home with Carrie Nash of
Apalachicola and a chug (Chihuahua-pug
mix) named Pipito was adopted as well
'Two dogs belonging to Caroline and Jeff
Ilardi, Jojo and Flash tied for first place in
the doggie duds competition. Both sported
colorful beach wear.
All of the participants received treats
provided by Petunia's Pet Shop on Ave D in

Jimmie
J. Nichols, of
Apalachicola,
died Tuesday,
Aug. 18, 2009, .
at the Clifford
Chester Sims
State Veterans'
Nursing Home in
Panama City. EIC
A native of N
his hometown,
born Sept. 2, 1920, he was
preceded in death by his
parents, Garouphalia and
John Nichols, and older
brother, Nick.
Jimmie loved his
hometown with a passion,
Whenever his friends or
customers needed any
kind of help, he was always
there. He enjoyed working
at the family business,
the Economy Cash Store,
along with his parents.
After graduating from
high school, he attended
the University of Florida
for one and a half years
only to return home to help
his aging parents at their
business.
In 1942 he joined the
Air Force. After training,
he was sent to Europe
and Africa. Sgt. Nichols
entered his journalistic
writing for the well-known
"Stars and Stripes"
newspaper.
Upon returning home
three years later, he and
brother Nick operated the
business.
In 1948, he married
Olga Costarides from
Montgomery, Alabama.
After graduation from
high school, she attended
Huntington College there
for one year and took
several courses through
Huntington while working
as a stenographer at
Maxwell Air Force Base.
In 1959 the couple
traveled in Greece while
adoption papers were
being processed for their
3-month old daughter and
5-month-old son. Their
happiness outweighed the
crises endured on the ship
on their way home with the
two infants.
Jimmie and Olga were
members of the Greek
Orthodox Church in
Tallahassee and attended
Trinity Episcopal Church
locally. Both took part
in Trinity's services and
organizations.
Jimmie was one of the
icos nsin Aalaechiscola He
Breakfasts and suggested
having turkey dinners in
the fall as a moneymaking
project, while serving on
the vestry.
Always referred to
as the city's historian,
he undertook the task of
assembling all information
from the State Archives


and Trinity's
records and
wrote the
church'shs history.
\ ~ This was from
1836 to 1936 and
was published
and sold while
the remainder
HOSwas given to the
HOS church.
Always
interested in local
politics, Jimmie served
several years as city
commissioner. Later he
ran and won the mayorship
for 16 years. During his
tenure, two separate
housing complexes were
built, the Raney House
was renovated and put
on the National List of
Historic Places, among
other projects. During this
time he sought on many
trips to bring industries
to his hometown to fill the
need for many looking for
work.
He was an avid reader
and enjoyed writing.
He began writing a
weekly column in the
weekly newspaper, the
Apalachicola Times, as
"Apalachicola Diary". He
brought to light many
aspects of Apalachicola
from the years of his
boyhood until his
retirement. His readers
urged him to publish a
book with the articles, but
he never did. His family
has kept them.
Jimmie leaves behind
his beloved wife of 60
years, Olga; son, John of
Apalachicola; daughter,
Cathy (Rick) Williams
of Tallahassee; three
grandsons, Matthew
Williams, Andrew Williams
and Nicholas Williams, all
of Tallahassee; brother,
Dr. Photis J. Nichols
(Frosso) of Jacksonville;
and numerous nephews,
nieces, and cousins.
The family received
friends Sunday evening,

were held Monday
morning, Aug. 24 at 'lkinity

Thursday, August 27, 2009


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor

Project Impact, one of
the county's two main af-
ter-school programs, re-
ceived word Friday that it
will be funded once again,
this year entirely under
the umbrella of the city of
Apalachicola.
On Friday, City Ad-
ministrator Betty Tay-
lor-Webb learned from
Florida Department of
Education Bureau Chief
Joe Davis the city will re-
ceive a 21st Century Com-
munity Learning Centers
Grant of $490,320 to con-


tinue its Project Impact
afterschool and summer
programs at the new ree-
reation and community
service complex at the
former Apalachicola High
School.
Faye Johnson, direc-
tor of Project Impact, said
annual funding will vary
over the course of five
years, but should amount
to about $2 million total
between July 1, 2009 to
June 30, 2014. She said the
grant cycle drew about
139 applications.
"We are very pleased
to inform you that the pro-
posal submitted by your


agency for the 2009-2010
21st Century Community
Learning Centers Grant
has been selected for
funding, wrote Davis. "The
overall quality of submit-
ted proposals resulted in
a highly competitive pro-
cess, and the success of
your proposal is a signifi-
cant accomplishment."
Johnson, along with
assistant Nadine Kahn
and city staffer Cindy
Summerhill, put together
and submitted the city's
proposal to the state for
consideration.
Johnson said the pro-
gram, beginning Tuesday,


Sept. 8, is expected to run
at two sites from 3 to 5:30
p.m. weekdays.
The Apalachicola
Municipal Complex will
feature a kindergarten
through 12th grade pro-
gram, while the one at the
Apalachicola Bay Charter
School, now located at the
former Chapman Elemen-
tary School, will be for kin-
dergarten through eighth
graders.
The purpose of the
grant is to provide enrich-
ment programs to help
students meet perfor-
mance standards in core
academic subjects, such


as reading and mathe-
matics, as well as to pro-
vide youth development
activities, such as drug
and violence prevention
programs, counseling
programs, art, music, and
recreation programs.
In addition, the pur-
pose of the grant is to pro-
vide families of students
served by the program
opportunities for literacy
and related educational
development.
Buddy Streit, direc-
tor of the Boys and Girls
Clubs of the Big Bend,
said his group's Franklin
County programs are in


the second year of a five-
year grant, that brings in
about $500,000 in annual
funding.
The Boys and Girls
Club runs after-school
programs at the former
Carrabelle High School
and at the new consoli-
dated school. Streit and
Kevin Ward, the county's
area director, are in the
process of determining
where a third site will be
placed in the Apalachicola
area.
It remains unclear how
an after-school program-
ming gap in the Eastpoint
area will be filled.


Students enrolled in
the Friends of the Frank-
lin County Public Library
TIGERS and KIT pro-
grams received book bags
and school supplies last
week at their afterschool
youth program sites in
the library branches in
Carrabelle and Eastpoint,
and the program site in
Apalachicola.
Coordinators Car-
ol Barfield, Suzanne
Creamer, and Bonny Ball
presented the 62 book
bags to students. Each
bag contained Frank-
lin County Consolidated
School grade-appropriate
required supplies.


The Book Bag Project,
designed to assist with
back-to-school expenses,
was facilitated and made
possible by the TIGERS
and KIT programs with
the aid of generous youth
program donations re-
ceived from the J. Ben
Watkins Foundation.
An expression of ap-
preciation on behalf of
students and families is
extended to J. Ben Wat-
kins for providing $1,040
in donations, CVS Phar-
macy in Apalachicola for
$660 in matching funds,
and the offering by Wal-
Mart in Tallahassee of a
$50 gift certificate.
