Most county officers to get tiny pay hike


HEALTH (ARE FORUM


I


YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER FOR MORE THAN 120 YEARS


VOL. 124 ISSUE 19


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
It isn't much, but it's some-
thing.
Elected county officials will be
getting a tiny three-hundredths of
1 percent pay hike this year, with
the exception of county commis-
sioners, whose pay will increase
by one-tenth of 1 percent, and the
school superintendent and two
judges, who will each get a 2 per-
cent pay cut.
The salaries of the two highest
paid officials, the circuitjudge and
county judge, are set annually in
the state's appropriations bill Ef-
fective July 1, 2009, both salaries
are 2 percent less than the prior
year, with Circuit Judge James
Hankinson making $142,178 this


year, while County Judge Van
Russell will earn $134,280.
As per a decision by the Flor-
ida legislature, Superintendent
Nina Marks also will receive a 2
percent pay cut, from $90,928 to
$89,109, or a drop of $1,819.
For all county elected officials,
the finalized salary numbers,
pursuant to a formula set in state
statute, were announced last
week by the Florida Legislative
Committee on Intergovernmen-
tal Relations. The committee,
which consists of four state sena-
tors, four state representatives
and seven gubernatorial appoin-
tees, has computed salaries of
elected county constitutional of-
ficers and school district officials
since 1985.
The highest paid county official


will continue to be Sherriff Skip
Shiver, who will receive $99,551,
or $27 more than last year.
Next highest are Clerk of
Courts Marcia Johnson, Property
Appraiser Doris Pendleton and
Tax Collector James Harris, all
of whom will earn $90,955, or $27
more than last year.
Supervisor of Elections Ida
Elliott will be paid $74,303, or $26
more than last year.
The salaries of these constitu-
tional officers do not include any
supplements, which can add up
to $2,000 to their formula-based
salary following the successful
completion of certification pro-
grams in the form of continuing
education.
The five county commission-
ers Bevin Putnal, Pinki Jackel,


Noah Lockley, Smokey Parrish
and Cheryl Sanders each will
be paid $25,275, or $26 more than
last year.
School board members Jim-
my Gander, David Hinton, Teresa
Ann Martin, George Thompson
and Carl Whaley will be paid
$24,074, or $7 more than last year.
During the past two decades,
the salaries for elected county
officials have grown steadily, but
increases have slowed in recent
years.
In 1990, the clerk of courts,
property appraiser and tax col-
lector were each paid $49,304,
with their salaries 84 percent
higher than that today. This aver-
ages out to a 4.2 percent pay hike
each year.
County commissioner pay


has gone from $13,027 in 1990 to
$25,275 today, or a 94 percent in-
crease, which is equivalent to a
4.7 percent annual pay hike.
School board members have
seen their pay go from $12,857 in
1990 to $24,074 today, or a boost of
87 percent, which translates to a
4.4 percent pay hike annually.
In addition to their salaries,
elected officials are eligible for
state retirement, as well as health
insurance on the same terms as
regular fulltime county employ-
ees.
Growth in salaries has slowed
in recent years due to a slowdown
in population growth, as well as a
drop in pay raises for state work-
ers. Both these factors figure into
the calculation made for elected
officials.

Apalachicola voters will
face a three-way battle
'Ile sday for city commi ssion
seat No. 4, as incumbent Val-
entina Webb hopes to keep
the seat against challenges
from a local banker and the
former police chief.
Brenda Ash, of 213 17th
St., and Anderson Williams,
of 206 12th St., are contend-
ing for the seat held by
Webb, of 255 11th St.
All of Apalachicola's
1,700 registered voters will
be eligible to vote in the
race, and if no one gets a


majority of the votes cast
on Sept. 8, then the top two
finishers will square off
Sept. 22.
Webb, 45, a captain with
the Florida Department of
Corrections with 22 years
of service, was elected to
the seat in 2005 in her first
bid for public office.
Both Ash, 40, a mort-
gage lending officer at Gulf
State Community Bank for
15 years, and Williams, 51,
a former Apalachicola chief
of police, are making their
first bid for public office.
The following are state-
ments from each of the
three candidates.

CITY COMMISSIONER


hOS8VTE SEPTEMB ER 8t

Dear Carrabelle Citizens,
On Tuesday, September 8th, we will be voting to lill two
seats on the Carrabelle City Commission. My name is Cal
A~llen and I am running for one of the two open seats.

Since moving here over ten years ago my family and I have
come to love this area and its people. Getting involved
with the community has blessed us in so many
ways. Over the years, we have attended nearly every
city commission meeting and have participated in many
community events.

If chosen to serve as your commissioner I promise:
To carefully study the issues in order to make
independent and informed decisions that will
benefit our community and its people.
To take a common sense approach to the
application of the rules and to apply them evenly.
To enhance, protect and preserve the unique
character of our waterfront and community.
To value and encourage participation in
government decision-making and to listen to the people
of Carrabelle.
To treat fellow commissioners and city workers
with respect even when we disagree.
To remain involved in community events.
To continue to support the waterfront and its
industries, both commercial and recreational.

Please mark your calendars and remind your friends and
neighbors to vote on September the 8th for their city
commissioners. I would be honored to have your
vote. 4-'

While tourism rev-
enues in the county have
not been immune to the
effects of the current re-
cession, indications are
the fall-off this fiscal year
will be less than 7 percent,
with an even smaller drop
expected in 2009-10.
At last month's county
budget workshop, Helen
Spohrer, who chairs the
Tourist Development
Council, unveiled a bud-
get for 2009-10 that carried
with it an optimistic fore-
cast of $750,000 in bed tax
revenues for the upcom-
ing fiscal year, unchanged
from what TDC officials
expect will be collected in
the current fiscal year.
After putting away
5 percent in reserves
as per state statute, the
budget forecast indicates
about $718,000 in new
monies will be counted
on to come in throughout
2009-10.
Together with $425,300
carried forward from the
current 00 fseal year,
this means the TDC will
have about $1.14 million to
work with next year.
To be on the safe side in
the event there's a steeper
drop in TDC collections
than forecast, the TDC
plans to set aside $300,000
in contingency reserves
next year, $50,000 more
than was parked there this
year.
In all, the TDC plans to
have $843,500 in working
capital for 2009-10.
"our tourism business
is holding its own," said
Spohrer, noting that it was
one bright spot amidst
the bleak economic condi-
tions.
TDC collections from
the state lag a few months,
so numbers are currently
available up through May.
What they show is that
between Oct. 2008 and May
2009, TDC revenues were
running about 6.3 percent
behind the year before.
A nearly 15 percent de-
cline was seen in May, a
drop of more than $18,000


On Sunday afternoon,
pranksters poured soap
into the new fountain at
Riverside Park in Apala-
chicola and, on Monday
morning, suds were pour-
ing over the edges of the
basin and blowing across
the park and the street.
Chief Bobby Varnes of
the Apalachicola Police
said, "My officer called


me yesterday evening
when he saw the bub-
bles."
Apalachicola employ-
ee Cindy Giametta said,
"This is vandalism. We
have to pump the foun-
tain out every time this
happens and add extra
chemicals. It costs city
money. If it keeps hap-
pening we may have to


shut it down and that
would be a shame."
Varnes asked that any-
one who saw suspicious
activity around the foun-
tain on Sunday, Aug. 30 or
sees suspicious activity
in the future, to please
call 653-9755 to report the
problem. If you call after
hours, you can leave a
message.


DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times
Helen Spohrer, chair of the Tourist Development
Council, reviews the proposed 2009-10 budget
with county commissioners at last month's budget
wor sop.


from the May 2008 total of
about $123,000. March col-
lections sagged as well,
falling from about $61,000
in March 2008 to about
$50,000 this year, or by
about 18.5 percent.
But April was a strong
month, with about 12 per-
cent more money coming
in, or about $7,770 more
than the April 2008 total of
roughly $66,000.
During the 2007-08 fis-
cal year, the 2-cent bed
tax brought in a tad more
than $774,000, so a drop
of 7 percent this year will
mean about $720,000 will
come in.
The TDC is relying on
preliminary indications
that June and July were
good months for tourism
traffic, and are confident
the county will see a rever-
sal of the 7 percent drop-
off that is running year-to-
date.
However, the state fore-
casts a less rosy scenario


for taxable sales as report-
ed by transient rental fa-
cilities, which is the basis
upon which the 2-cent bed
tax is imposed.
According to calcu-
lations released by the
Florida Department of
Revenue's Office of Tax
Research, the county will
see a 10 percent drop-off
in these sales during the
current fiscal year, from
about $39 million last year
to $35 million this year.
Next year, the state
forecasts a 5 percent de-
cline in these sales, down
to about $32 million.
If these forecasts come
to pass, they will be the
first consecutive years of
declines following three
straight years of increas-
es, when these transient
rental sales rose from
$33.5 million in year 2005-
06 (the first full year of the
bed tax), to nearly $39 mil-
lion in 2007-08, or a jump of
about16 percent.


Shumaker Construction has been cho-
sen to erect the new commercial hangar
for the Apalachicola Regional Airport.
At the county commission's Aug. 4
meeting, County Planner Alan Pierce
opened eight bids for the contract to con-
struct a new 11,000 square foot commer-
cial hangar for the Apalachicola Regional
Airport at a cost of $814,400.
At the Aug. 18 meeting, Lee Lewis, of
AVCON, consulting engineers for the air-
port, said AVCON recommended the con-
tract be awarded to Shumaker Construc-
tion, Inc. of Panama City.
"They have done this kind of work be-
fore," said Lewis. "Last year, they con-
structed a large hangar in Panama City."
Pierce said 14 companies attended an
explanatory meeting at the airport prior
to bidding on the project. He said that no
Franklin County companies attended the
meeting or bid on the project.
He said that Shumaker will construct
only the shell of the hangar. Specifies of the
layout of the interior remain undecided.
The hangar may be used as an aircraft
painting facility. Bill Ruic, of Apalachicola,
and Buddy MacDonald, of Valdosta, GA,
both expressed an interest in operating
a commercial painting operation at the
airport and the county is negotiating with
them. The estimated cost of outfitting the
hangar for a commercial painting opera-
tion is $329,000.
If it is not outfitted as a paint station,
the interior will be fitted with offices to
generate rental revenue. It will cost an es-
timated $84,000 to construct offices.
When the decision on how to outfit the
interior of the hangar is made, Shumaker
will complete the project.
The county received a grant of $1.2 mil-
lion to fund the project from the Florida

Tax letter not an issue for Garlick
At Tuesday's county commission meet-
ing, Commissioner Pinki Jackel moved
that the commission rescind the offer of a
tax letter to Dan Garlick. The letter would

indicate that Garlick had sold the prop-
erty below fair market value and thus was
entitled to deduct the difference from his
taxes.
The county had offered to write the let-
ter as part of its agreement to purchase 50
acres of buffer land at the end of Runway
13-31 at the Apalachicola Regional Air-
port.
On Tuesday, Jackel said the letter
should not be given because a new ap-
praisal of the land, ordered by Ted Mo-
steller, set the land's value at $9,000 per
acre, which was the purchase price to be
paid by the county.
"It is not our responsibility to give a
gift letter to everyone who sells the county
land," said Jackel.

Energy challenge calls for atomic bomb brainstorm


Letters to the EDITOR


* 'Y


Thursday, September 3, 2009


A4 | The Times


Just when I was starting
to feel a tad bit overwhelmed
by technology, I
recently found
myself mildly

lack of it. As my
m ate put it soiriae -t t
succinctly the
other night, "What 4
we could use right
now is a really RDWIE
good battery."
Why, at least ANIDROUX
in the consumer Dns ox
world, haven't
we found one that keeps a large
charge for a long time?
It seems to me that we have
become very good at producing
energy. We're just not too adept
at keeping it around for a while.
Wouldn't it be nice if a lightning
bolt at the power station meant
only a brief flicker instead of
hours without Facebook and
QVC? The huge coal, petroleum,
nuclear fission, solar, and
wind plants are just bang-up
at keeping a steady stream of
kilowatts flowing. Some of them
have a bit of a storage situation.
The only thing is: they need that
space for waste, not energy. And,
of course, there's always the
possibility of the promised-for-
almost-50-years-now, but still
unavailable, fusion plants.
I've got a feeling that
scientists and engineers are
pooh-poohing this naive train of
thought. Hey, let's start talking
about this, because I'm ready for
a Manhattan Project approach
to everything from automatically
recharging batteries to entire
energy grids with stored
electrical power.
People of the nuclear
generation generally have at
least a passing knowledge of the
United States' fast-track project
to develop the bombs eventually
dropped on Hiroshima and
Nagasaki. A warning from Albert
Einstein to the President had
been taken very seriously. The
best and most creative scientists
from around the world were
convened at numerous locations
--all on the government's
dime. The Manhattan Project
had a single mission and a tight
deadline.


That is just what happened here.
Quite some time ago I
enjoyed "Stallion Gate" by
Martin Cruz Smith. I've read all
of his stuff, and I particularly like
the Detective Arkady mysteries
that began with "Gorky Park."
Stallion Gate was the name of
an area near Los Alamos, New
Mexico. The scientists there
had the responsibility of actually
assembling the A-bombs named
Fat Man and Little Boy. Of
course, Cruz's novel is highly
fictionalized; however, that
book did get me thinking of the
American approach to problem
solving.
We really need a Manhattan
Project for energy research.
Does it seem to you that
we always wait until the last
minute?
The environment has been
going south for decades, and
we are just now launching
successful mainstream
movements with a global and
personal perspective.
Think about the moon race,
the drive for civil rights, and
women's issues. The good news
is that once we get started in the
right direction, a mighty wind is
blowing.
Wouldn't this make just a
great way to spend government
stimulus money? Instead of
reading about bailed-out CEOs
receiving million dollar bonuses,
we could rest a little easier
knowing that lots of really smart
people were working for us.
With apologies to the
true capitalists, I honestly
believe there are some things
government does better than
private industry with its built-in
profit motive.
I just wish I felt little better
about the way the Feds spend
my dollar.
Maybe for an energy
breakthrough, what we really
need is some brainstorming
and barnstorming, off-the-wall
creativity, combined with hard
science, and a tight deadline.
It worked with the A-bomb.

I was walking my dog
in the park on Friday
morning and encountered
a young man with two
large labs. Both dogs were
pooping.
When the dogs had
finished their business,
the young man started to
leave, and I asked if he was


going to pick up the poop,
and I offered him a plastic
bag. He shrugged his
shoulders.
I said, "OK, I'll pick it up
if you won't," and he said
"you go right ahead."
I have noticed that the
park has a lot of poops,
in spite of signs asking
dog owners to pick up.
Not only is this area very
close to the swings where
children play, but in the
long run this feces makes
its way into the bay further
contaminating the waters.
Lafayette Park is such a
treasure and we all need to
keep it clean and beautiful.

Impartial review
neded of safoo

WOrkers' books
I am writing as a
former treasurer of the
Franklin County Seafood
Workers Association
(FCSWA). Recently, the
oganization has ben in
sad. I have just one wish
_ that all the accusations
being made should cease
and the organization
should move forward.
For this to happen
I believe the financial
records of the FCSWA
need to be reviewed by
an independent person
committee or an auditor.
With those results, people
can review the facts in the
review.
In addition, I would
like to offer a cash reward
of $50 to anyone who can
provide the organization
with an authentic copy of
the Association's original
bylaws. I can be reached
at (850) 524-6265. Please


leave a message with your
contact information.

Former treasurer

No p ce for
cOSting stones
For the most part when
there is a letter to the
editor written in bad taste
about me personally, I
don't even care to respond.
For those that know me
know what I do and why I
do it, there is no question
that they will know
better. I have tried hard
to represent the FCSWA
with the best of my ability
during the past few years.
As of late, once again
I find myself being
personally attacked, and
that I can deal with, but I'll
just be damned iflI allow
the FCSWA to be brought
down in the fallout.
For the past several
days, there has been
mnogig battle about

which would have been
extremely beneficial,
considering the state
of the economy and the
justifiable needs, especially
due to the concerns of
even commissioners about
the skyrocketing light bills
and financial hardship.
However, the Task
Force stopped that relay,
and rather than to have
the focus turned on that
subject, it is easier to shift
the focus, and far easier
to tear down someone or
something rather than to
give credit where credit is
due.
*For years, the
FCSWA has made an avid
campaign to downplay


the old stereotype of the
drunken oysterman with
the carefree attitude. It
was accomplished; the
seafood workers are now
looked upon as people of
experience, knowledge and
insight that no books could
ever teach anyone.
*Folks are listening,
the ones in Tallahassee
that matter, the ones who
have forged friendships
and working relationships
with the FCSWA
administration, and for
the first time in years
there has been a working
relationship between the
departments of state and
the FCSWA.
*The oyster relay not
only has continued but
also has increased in pay
to the seafood workers
themselves. The FCSWA
is finally asked where they
feel the relays should be
held, and an opinion as
to what are the best and
worst parts to plant. They
hav ao losne in O a
get funds to have shelling
programs with DACS. The
contract for oyster relay is
between the FCSWA and
DACS and has nothing
whatsoever to do with the
Task Force.
*Public relations and
the relationship between
tourism and the seafood
industry has increased
during the past few years,
with eco-tours, festivals
and involvement in
community affairs. Due to
the interaction, education
and entertainment venues,
the FCSWA has made an
effort to be seen and heard
and has managed to build
a bridge between tourism,
trade and seafood, which


has never been there
before.
*Participation in
meetings, having a say
in matters that concern
the seafood industry,
uncontrolled development,
the ACF and Water Wars,
waterfront issues and
other issues of concern
has given them an
opportunity to be heard,
seen and considered as a
strong voice.
*Interaction of media
events, the news, local and
abroad as far as the UK,
France, and throughout
the states, has been
constant. Taking important
people out on the bay, such
as the Corps of Engineers,
or a mere college student
trying to understand
the intricate works of
the seafood worker, has
increased a knowledge
base and interaction
of communication and
network, getting the
word out that there are

te me foo in srsn and
these issues are true and
founded.

The county's only amusement
park will close its doors for the
last time.
After eight years, Carol Robin-
son said she and husband Bill are
retiring from the business of fun.
The couple will close the doors
to the Putt N' EAss EAn Park in
Eastpoint on Monday, Sept. 7.
Robinson said the park will of-
fer last-chance specials for min-
iature golf, ice cream and other
attractions through closing.
"We are retiring," she said.
"We want to travel a little bit and
take some time to do some of
the things you're supposed to do
when you retire. I decided on this
when I realized all I had to do to
retire was shut the doors."
The Robinsons arrived in the
county in 1989 on the way home
from visiting Bill Robinson's
mother in South Florida. They
were unfamiliar with the Pan-
handle and immediately fell in
love. At that time, Bill was a con-
tractor in western New York state
and Carol sold real estate.
They decided to start over in
Franklin County and returned.


ing to the schools.
"One of the main things we did
was we sent the teachers gift cer-
tificates to give to the children on
the honor roll. Each quarter they
got a free ice cream and a free
game of golf," she said.
Robinson said she and her
husband have enjoyed thinking
of creative new attractions and
planning promotions and par-
ties, but now are ready to move
on.
She said the park will be sold
as a commercial property. The
parcel is a little over an acre, 300
feet deep, located on US 98 and
visible from Island Drive. The
main building is metal and suit-
able for any commercial opera-
tion.
She said most of the games
inside the caf6 are leased on a
monthly basis. The pool and golf
course, which the Robinsons
constructed themselves, will be
removed.
"Maybe some of the children
will miss us," she said wistfully.
"But it's time to try something
new."
For more information about
the property or last chance spe-
cials call 670-1211.

Carol went to work for Resort Re-

Carrabelle received a
heavy soaking rain last
week that did damage to
several businesses.
Rod Gasche, of Carra-
belle, said that during the
recent unnamed storms,
his rain gauge recorded
over eight inches of rain
over a 24-hour period be-
tween the mornings of
Aug. 27 and 28.
The National Weather
Service reported two-and-


one-half inches of rain fell
on Aug. 27 and 28 in Apala-
chicola.
A number of Carrabelle
businesses located along
US 98 and County Road 67
flooded.
Mary Giles. of Trader's
Antiques on the south side
of US 98. said she experi-
enced a small amount of
flooding, which is not un-
usual, but some nearby
businesses said the event
was unprecedented.
Both SeaCrest Realty
and Sandy Beach Prop-
erties, on the north side


of US 98, said they had
several inches of water
throughout their entire
office space. They blame
the high water on a new
arrangement of sidewalks
which blocks the end of
Avenue A. The change was
intended as a traffic calm-
ing device to prevent traf-
fic from entering US 98 at
a busy intersection.
"We got everything
cleaned up using shop
vacs. We had two to three
inches of water," said
Donna Maloy of SeaCrest.
"Our office has never


flooded until this work
on the sidewalk. Now the
water has nowhere to
go. The city and the state
both came out to look at
the flood. The drains were
completely plugged with
debris which only made
matters worse."
Paula Caruthers, of
Sandy Beach, said she was
not so lucky when her of-
fice flooded.
"I think we were able to
save the carpet," she said.
"But the kitchen cabinet
around the sink collapsed
and there was a laptop on
the floor. The problem is
the drainage. It's never
flooded like this in the two
years we've been here.
When they were chang-
ing the sidewalk, I knew it
wasn't going to work. You


drain water away from a
building, not towards it.
It's just poor design. Do
you know where I can get
some help repairing the
damage?"
Caruthers said she is
not covered by flood insur-
ance, and that it was only
through the efforts of her
staff that damage was kept
to minimum.
Rush Gander, of Gan-
der's Hardware, said his
store flooded as well.
"This happens every
four to five years, but this
time it was worse," he
said. "There was a lot of
rain but, I think another
problem was a drain-
age ditch located along
one side of our property.
It's completely blocked. I
think if it had been clear


this wouldn't have been so
bad.
Giles said an inspector
from 'lk~ansfield Services,
the company holding the
state contract for cleaning
and maintenance along
US 98, came and inspected
the drains.
"I am investigating
whether this area falls un-
der our contract hecausei
is a city street," said How-
ard Simmons, an engineer
for Transfield, in a tele-
phone interview.
Giles said she believed
the flooding across the
street was caused by the
new sidewalk. "I have
been concerned since they
made these changes," she
said. "I think this happened
now because it was such a
high intensity downpour."

*The FCSWA has supported many of its
seafood workers in times of need, and if we were
unable to help them, then we helped find someone
who could.
As to the accusations and innuendos, while
reports might have been filed late, they were
filed. The accusations of misuse of funds are just
that, accusations. Meetings have never been a
strong point within the association since 1978,
and most people know that the only time it is well
attended is when there is a specific issue, the bay
is closed or there is a relay. Elections have been
brought up a number of times, and to put it mildly,
few people are willing to step up to the plate, do
the work and then get their head chopped off by
someone who does not have a clue to start with.
Minutes are taken, and if there is organizational
discord, it is worked out within the association.
The success far exceeds the failures, and while
you might not know everything, I am certain that
you know something that the FCSWA has done in
positive light for the community and the seafood
industry.
So cast the stones if you like, we can use them
to step up on to hold our heads high and know
what we have accomplished and what we have
helped the FCSWA accomplish. Just remember
let he who is perfect cast the first stone.

I retired in December 2007
as the Chief of Police. Pres-
ently, I am employed with
Piggly Wiggly and am also
co-owner of A&R Housing.
I am concerned for our
city and our community.
To do this, one must be in
touch with the community.
I have done that and am
still doing this. Public safe-
ty is a real concern for me
and our fire department.
As your commissioner, I
will not run from making
decisions concerning our
community or not show up
when tough decisions have


to be made. We must con-
tain what we already have
and keep the services that
we have for our residents
and take care of the em-
ployees. I am still in favor
of having trained employ-
ees, not to just place them
in positions and tell them
"you know what to do."
I am the most experi-
enced of the candidates,
and I know I can help make
things happen. I will be a
full-time commissioner. I
will be there to help carry
out the community wishes.
Thank you for your vote.

I will utilize my 15 years

The Tin Shed is a great place to begin

Nautical antiques and authentic

Caribbean rum jugs, wood carvings,
Japanese fishing floats, metal art, brass

cover the walls, ceilings, and displays.
Balance toys, porthole windows, teak

spaces between. Thousands of other

The Tin Shed is the type of place that is

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

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.

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.

feSponsive within a balanced budg et"

I WOuld appreciate your vote on Sept. 8 which will allow me to
COntinue serving as your Apalachicola City Commissioner. I

BOYD from page Al

conservative sources that said,
for example, illegal aliens would
be covered under House Bill 3200,
the baseline reform bill advocated
by Democrats.
"I don't know who your source
is, but you ought to check them
because they have no credibility,"
Boyd told Roy Solomon, of Apala-
chicola.
After an introduction from
Commission Chairman Smokey
Parrish, in which he thanked the
congressman for his support in
the Water Wars, Boyd opened with
an overview of the economy that
argued for some sort of reform.
He recounted the beginnings
of the ongoing recession and the
drastic steps needed to address
it. "Suddenly, our economy goes
in a free fall," he said. "Most of
us out in the street didn't know it
was coming."
Boyd said the economy shrunk
by a trillion dollars, more than 6
percent, with the market plum-
meting and unemployment ris-
ing. "A lot of bad things were hap-
pening," he said. "Trends are that
we may have at least seen the
bottom. Are we out of the woods?
No. We have some serious chal-
lenges in this country."
Boyd said 17 percent of the na-
tion's gross domestic product is
spent on health care, with costs
running 7 to 10 percent ahead of
inflation every year.
"That is a bad trend," he said.
"We can't fix long-term economic
problems until we have responsi-
ble health care reform. We've got
to deal with that problem some-
how."
The congressman noted in his
introduction the problem Frank-
lin County has had in keeping
afloat its only hospital, a problem
stabilized with the passage of a
penny sales tax two years ago to
offset deficits.
"Is the Apalachicola hospital
open this week?" he asked. "Who
pays that bill?"
Boyd said higher taxes and in-
surance rates result from public
and private dollars going to offset
the health care costs of about 50
million uninsured Americans.
"Let's concede, ladies and
gentlemen, that we can do it bet-
ter," he said, while noting that he

Jim Cobb, right, questioned Allen Boyd on farm subsidies his Monticello farm has received.


did not favor the public option.
"I suspect the public option is
probably on its last legs," he said.
"It seems to be off the table."
The Blue Dog Democrats are
united behind four principles for
any reforms: that patient choice
be preserved, costs contained,
access improved and the deficit
not enlarged, Boyd said.
"We have to stop borrowing,"
he said. "If we're not willing to
pay for it, let's not do it. There's
very little cost containment in
this bill."

Speakers debate pros
000 CONS 07 tne issue
Boyd heard from a long list
of speakers, opening with re-
tired nurse Betty Lou Douglas,
Kristen Anderson, Jeff Ilardi,
Karen Cox-Dennis and Barbara
Sanders, who heads the county's
Democratic Executive Commit-
tee, all of whom urged support
for President Obama's health
care reforms.
"It's really lonely out there for


individuals" when it comes to get-
ting insurance, said Anderson.
Susan Leach said her hus-
band, a Vietnam vet, has devel-
oped cancer and now must pay
$16,000 year in health premiums
to keep up his coverage. "That's
not an option for us," she said.
Others, such as Solomon,
Charles Wilson, Frank Venable,
Leslie Coon and Mike Horan
were skeptical of government as
the answer.
"I'm against government tak-
ing over health care. Anything
the government runs is fouled
up," said Solomon.
"That doesn't mean I want
the federal government sticking
their heads in my health care,"
said Horan.
"The future of this country
relies on character, honesty and
reliability," said Venable.
"We are a profit-driven coun-
try, and it's rightfully so," said
Coon.
The discussion stuck mainly to
health care reform, with two ex-
ceptions. Jim Cobb, of St. George


Island, pressed Boyd on $1.3 mil-
lion in federal agriculture subsi-
dies his Monticello farm has re-
ceived since 1996. Boyd disputed
the accuracy of the News Herald
report and said subsidies were
an important part of ensuring a
steady, low-cost supply of food for
Americans.
A couple speakers rose to
condemn Boyd's vote for the cap-
and-trade legislation, and a host
of speakers pressed for help with
the Veterans Administration's
health care network. "If we are
to pattern the new health care
program anything like the VA,
I think we'd be in big trouble,"
said former Apalachicola Mayor
Sandy Howze, who is recovering
from cancer from what he said
was Agent Orange exposure dur-
ing Vietnam.
Pressed for specifics, Boyd
said he favored cost containment
steps that would curtail overuti-
lization, enact tort reform and ad-
dress fraud and abuse.
"I do not understand how peo-
ple can say 'Just do this part, but


leave that part out of it,"' he said.
"You can't just turn it over to the
insurance companies and have
them charge whatever they want
to charge."
"It seems to me that medicine
nowadays is maybe more about
profit than it is about taking care
of patients," he said. "We can do
better."
In a brief interview follow-
ing the forum, Boyd said he has
seen bipartisan agreement on
cost containment and predicted
some reforms would be enacted
by year's end.
"I would nothbesurprised at all
if we would see some incremental
things," he said. "Creating a new
system with a 'Big Bang theory,'
most people are very uncomfort-
able with totally reworking the
system and starting over.
"I don't think there's a parti-
san bill that is written that can be
passed. It has to be bipartisan,"
Boyd said. "I think the president
understands that. I'm not sure
the Congressional leadership un-
derstands that."

At left, J.B. Hudson, who retired as administrative assistant to the Secretary of the Army after 42 years of service, presented the award on behalf of the Civilian
Marksmanship Program.. At right, Jimmy Mosconis, right, receives from Cong. Allen Boyd the M1 Garand that embodies the Patriot award from the Civilian
Marksmanship Program.


Standing in front of the
sculpture, Three Service-
men Statue South, that he
led the charge to bring to
Apalachicola; Jimmy Mosco-
nis received on Aug. 26 a spe-
cial "Patriot" presentation by
the Civilian Marksmanship
Program.
"Jimmy Mosconis has dis-
played a lifetime of service to
his country as a soldier in
Vietnam, as a county com-
missioner for over 20 years,
as an international philan-
thropist and as the driving
force behind this memorial,"
said Congressman Allen
Boyd, who presented Mosco-
nis with the award, embod-
ied in an actual M1 Garand,
the rifle that, along with the
G.I. and Rosie the Riveter,
won World War II.
"I know firsthand the
depth of sacrifice offered by
our servicemen and women
in Vietnam. Thanks to Jim-
my Mosconis, that sacrifice
will never be forgotten as
future generations visit this
memorial," Boyd said.
Former Tallahassee
mayor and state Democrat-
ic chairman Scott Maddox
opened the program by in-
troducing the many dignitar-
ies on hand, including J.B.
Hudson, who retired as the
administrative assistant to
the Secretary of the Army
after 42 years of service, is a
director of governmental af-
fairs with the Civilian Marks-
manship Program. Hudson
was the highest ranking ca-
reer civilian in the Pentagon,
and his administrative du-
ties included working toward
the safe and orderly running
of the Pentagon following the
attack of 9-11.
Other guests in atten-
dance included former De-
partment of Management
Services Secretary Tom
Lewis; VEW Commander
Mark Alvarez; Ken Swords,
National Sergeant at Arms,
Military Order of the Purple
Heart; and former Delta
Force Sgt. Major Rick
Schuck.
Maddox also welcomed
Col. Bo Bloodworth, from
Defuniak Springs, who in-
troduced retired Marine
Corps' Lt. Gen. Lawrence
Snowden.
Snowden, who lives in
Tallahassee, enlisted in the
Marines in 1942 and served
as a company commander
at Iwo Jima before embark-
ing on a distinguished career
that included several top-
ranking spots in the United
States and Japan.
"We can not memorial-


ize enough," he said, noting
that he saw in the Three
Servicemen Statue the faces
of young soldiers from all
wars. "These soldiers repre-
sent the thousands of young
men and women who gave
their lives and never asked
for anything in return. I see
this as a tribute to all of our
veterans."
Snowden noted that the
current wars in Iraq and Af-
ghanistan are likely to con-
tinue for some time, and that
the solders fighting there
now need the nation's sup-
port and care when they re-
turn home. "You have a good
chance of being a veteran
too," he told the younger
members of the audience.
In his remarks, Boyd took
cited to his own experiences
as young rifle platoon leader
in the 101st Airborne Divi-
sion in Vietnam, noting that
the only lapel pin he wears is
that of the Combat Infantry
Badge.
I'm real humbled today,"
said Mosconis, after receiv-
ing the award from Boyd and
Hudson. "This is the culmi-
nation of the work of a lot of
people. I'm really grateful."
Mosconis, who owns
and operates the Bay City
Lodge, worked closely with
Jan C. Scruggs, founder and
president of the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial IEind to
gain his assistance in creat-
ing the Apalachicola memo-
rial. Scruggs was the key
advocate behind the effort to
build the Vietnam Memorial
Wall in Washington D.C.
Mosconis served as
Scruggs' platoon sergeant
in the 199th Light Infantry
Brigade during the Vietnam
War. He and Scruggs were
wounded together during a
May 28, 1969, battle in Xuan
Loc, a hamlet approximately
60 miles northeast of Ho Chi
Minh City (formerly Saigon).
Last year, Mosconis also
joined New York Stock Ex-
change Chairman Marshall
N. Carter to provide funds to
build a cultural community
center and preschool com-
plex in Quang 'It~i-Province,
Vietnam.
The Civilian Marksman-
ship Program (CMP) is a na-
tional organization dedicat-
ed to training and educating
U. S. citizens in responsible
uses of firearms and air guns
through gun safety training,
marksmanship training and
competitions. The CMP is a
federally chartered 501(c)(3)
corporation that places its
highest priority on serving
youth through gun safety


of members of the Armed
Forces. The CMP traces its
direct lineage to 1903 when
Congress and President
Theodore Roosevelt estab-
lished the National Board
for the Promotion of Rifle
Practice (NBPRP) and the
National Matches. From
then until 1996, first the De-
partment of War and later
the Department of the Army
managed the program that
became known as the "ci-
vilian marksmanship pro-
gram."
During this period, pro-
gram objectives shifted
from military marksman-
ship to training civilians who
might serve in the military
to developing youth through
marksmanship training. In


1996, Congress acted again
to establish the Corporation
for the Promotion of Rifle
Practice and Firearm Safety
that now governs the CMP
The CMP actively assists
the mission of our armed
services. As such, the orga-
nization created the Patriots
Program, where outstand-
ing citizens are recognized
for their contributions to our
country.
"Jimmy Mosconis is a
patriot, both for his past ser-
vice and current efforts for
our great nation. The CMP
is proud to proclaim him as a
'CMP Patriot' and recognize
his outstanding efforts" said
Charlie Maddox, C.E.O. of
the Civilian Marksmanship
Program.

and marksmanship activi-
ties that encourage personal
growth and build life skills.
CMP history goes back
to late 19th century efforts


by U.S. military and political
leaders to strengthen our
country's national defense
capabilities by improving the
rifle marksmanship skills

SUpport for PSJ port
At their Aug. 18 meet-
ing, county commissioners
chose not to send a letter
of support to the Port Au-
thority of Port St. Joe in re-
sponse to a letter from the
chairman of the authority.
The port is seeking grant
money to make Port St. Joe
"a fully viable seaport."
The Florida Department
of Wtansportation lists Port
St. Joe as one of the state's
14 deepwater seaports.
Others are the ports of Ca-
naveral, Port Everglades,
Fernandina, Fort Pierce,
Jacksonville, Key West,
Manatee, Miami, Palm
Beach, Panama City, Pen-
sacola, St. Petersburg and
Tampa.
"We have two deepwater
ports in Franklin County,"
said Commissioner Cheryl
Sanders. "Ifwe sign on sup-
porting them for TIGER
grants ('Itansportation In-
vestment Generating Eco-
nomic Recovery) we tie our
own hands if we want to ask
for grants later on."
The U.S. Department of
'Itansportation made $1.5
billion in TIGER discre-
tionary grants for surface
transportation projects
available in June through
the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009.
"With offshore drilling
coming up, I want Franklin
County to get some of that
business," said Commis-
sioner Bevin Putnal. "Car-
rabelle is the last deepwa-


ter port before Tampa."

TWO firms awarded
sidewalk contracts
At their Aug. 18 meet-
ing, county commissioners
compared qualifications
of firms competing for the
engineering and inspec-
tion work on sidewalks to
be built on St. George Is-
land and in Apalachicola.
The commission decid-
ed to divide the work be-
tween two firms: Preble-
Rish, Inc. of Port St. Joe,
which will engineer the
Apalachicola sidewalks,
and Bailey, Bishop and
Lane, Inc. of Tallahassee,
which was tapped for the
island project. The work
will be funded with federal
stimulus money.
"Preble Rish did a lot of
work free of charge to help
us get stimulus money and


I would like to see them
get it," said Commissioner
Noah Lockley. "I think Bai-
ley Bishop and Lane ought
to start doing some of that
free work."
Commissioner Pinki
Jackel moved that the
work be divided and the
motion passed 4-1, with
Lockley dissenting.

North Florida deer
hunters are encour-
aged to attend a public
meeting from 6-8 p.m.
on Tuesday, Sept. 15
at the Antique Car Mu-
seum, 6800 Mahan Drive
in Tallahassee, to share
thoughts about possible
changes to the state's
deer hunting zones and
seasons.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is
considering changes to
the deer hunting zones
and seasons as part of its
deer management strate-
gic plan and in response
to discussions earlier this
summer with deer hunt-
ers. The meeting is an
opportunity for the public
to learn about possible
changes and share their
views with agency staff.
The meeting will fea-
ture a presentation on
the latest agency pro-


posal, followed by a ques-
tion-and-answer session.
The FWC is using deer
chronology breeding
data, along with hunter
and stakeholder input to
draft anticipated chang-
es to hunting zones and
seasons. The FWC has
deer-breeding informa-
tion from most North
Florida counties and sev-
eral wildlife management
areas, but there are gaps
in the data. Hunter input
on the rut may help close
the gaps.
Commission staff ree-
ognizes the value of local
knowledge and is asking
hunters who know when
the rut occurs in their
area to fill out an online
survey. The information
will be used to compare
hunters' perceptions of
the rut with scientifically
known conception data.
During rutting periods,
bucks are more active


during the daylight and
less cautious, improving
hunters' chances of see-
ing them in the field.
"Deer hunters want
to hunt during the rut,
and we want to be able
to share comprehensive
information with hunters
about when the rut oc-
curs," said Cory Morea.
FWC biologist and deer
team coordinator. "We re-
alize a lot of hunters know
when the rut happens in
their area, and we want
to take this information
and compare it with our
conception data, to see if
they are similar."
To see the latest up-
dates on proposed deer
zones and season dates,
and to comment on the
potential changes, go to
www.MyFWC.com/Deer
and fill out the rut sur-
vey.
To reach Morea, call
850-410-0656, ext. 17256.

Special to The Times
The Coastal & Marine Con-
servation Lecture Series will
present a lecture by Jack Rud-
loe, founder of Panacea's Gulf
Specimen Marine Laboratory,
on Thursday, Sept. 10.
The lecture, from 7-9 p.m.,
is free and open to the public
in the Florida State University
Coastal and Marine Lab audi-
torium, at 3618 Coastal High-
way 98, in St Teresa.
Rudloe is the author of sev-
en well-known books on Flori-
da natural history and marine
life. He achieved the first live
exhibit of the world's largest
isopod, the deep-sea giant sea
roach, and was instrumental
in the New York Aquarium's
exhibit of the giant Surinam
toadfish, also first.
Rudloe traveled to Malaysia
and The People's Republic of
China as a representative of
the U.S. International Trade
Commission to develop fisher-
ies cooperative agreements.
He will read from his and
wife Anne's upcoming book,
"Shrimp, the Endless Quest for
Pink Gold" at the lecture.
"It's a story about shrimp,
the shrimp fishermen who roam
the seas dragging for them,


"Then add biologists, fishery
managers, Coast Guardsmen,
deckhands, boat captains and
seafood processors. Behind
them are the bankers and other
money men who fuel the gold
rush mentality."
In his foreword to the book,
Winston Groom, author of
Forrest Gump, writes, "Rich
in stories of seamen and the
sea, Shrimp tells a fascinating
story not only of the little crea-
ture itself, but of all the trials
and tribulations the intrepid
shrimper goes through to har-
vest him up. As scientists and
marine biologists, the Rudloes
know whereof they speak, and
as writers have the talent and
grace not only to put it in un-
derstandable language, but
to make it interesting as well.
Shrimp is one of those rare
books that will do honor to any
bookshelf."
The marine lab, in associa-
tion with Second Harvest of the
Big Bend, part of"The Nation's
Food Bank Network," is col-
lecting nonperishable food
items at each monthly lecture.
If you plan to attend, please
bring an item or two and help
solve the hunger crisis in our
community.

Jack and Anne Rudloe


the farmers who grow them in
ponds and the people who love
to eat them," he said. "Farmers
have provided a stable world-
wide supply of pond-grown
shrimp, which has made shrimp
more widely available than ever
before. Shrimp fishermen com-
plain that cheap farmed shrimp
is putting them out of business.
It's a conflict as old as human-
ity itself, that of hunter-gather-


ers versus agriculture, or in this
case 'aquaculture.'
"To this cast of characters,
add environmentalists saying
'A plague on both your houses!'
to farmers and fishermen, since
trawlers kill sea turtles and
thousands of tons of fish each
year as part of the discarded
by-catch and farmers destroy
coastal mangrove forests to
build their ponds," Rudloe said.

to reimburse the Lanark
Village Association for pay-
ments made to Progress En-
ergy to light Lanark's walk-
ing path.

treasurer of the Lanark Vil-
lage Association, requested
the county reimburse the as-
sociation for $6,271 spent on
electricity to keep the street-
lights in Lanark lit from Jan
1, 2008, to March 31, 2009.

sion tabled the issue and

cia Johnson to consult with

ST. JAMES
BAY GOLF
COURSE

Overlooking a
pond and the 8th
fairway, AND
it's the least
expensive lot in
the golf course! Put a house on the back of this
LARGE lot (.38 acres) located on a quiet cul-
de-sac (Skimmer Dr.) and enjoy the privacy of
a wooded area with an unobstuctable view of
the golf course. One of the few lots that could
accommodate a larger home and a private
pool. Not a short sale, but priced like one!
