VOL. 124 ISSUE 20


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
The Apalachicola city commis-
sion has trimmed another quar-
ter-mil off everyone's upcoming
tax bill, resulting in a drop in the
reserves slated to be left over in
the general fund at year's end.
At a special meeting and bud-
get workshop Aug. 25, city com-
missioners voted unanimously
to ratchet down the millage from
7.56 to 7.31 mils. This will result
in a $43,689 drop in tax proceeds,


which will now be nearly $1.28
million.
As a result, the budget at the
end of the year is expected to re-
sult in only about $75,000 in rev-
enue over expenditures, as op-
posed to nearly $116,000.
The reduction in millage was
made possible after the city re-
ceived news a few days earlier
that Project Impact would again
be funded by a21st Century Com-
munity Learning Centers Grant
worth about a half-million dollars
per year.

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
A robust turnout in Franklin County's mu-
micipal elections Tuesday propelled two incum-
bents back into office, elected a new face and
Set the stage for a runoff in two weeks.
In Carrabelle's race for
two city commission seats, CARRABELLE
Cal Allen, 71, a retired IRS
employee making his first
bid for public office, topped
the field with 174 votes, or

cent.
Denied in their bids were AALE
two political newcomers, so-
cial worker Cherry Rankin,
49, with 122 votes, and realtor
Charlotte Russell Schneider,
47, with 121. Both received
21 percent of the votes.
In Apalachicola, retired
Navy officer Frank Cook, I~m
71, won his first full term on RICHARD
the city commission, besting SANDS
businessman Jerry Hall, 62,
446 votes to 311, or 59 to 41
percent. Cook was appointed AAAHCL
two years ago to commission
seat No. 3 to fill the remain- .
der of Commissioner Van
Johnson's term after he was
elected mayor.
The other city commis-
sion race, for seat No. 4, will
be decided Sept. 22, when .
Brenda Ash and incumbent FAKCO
Valentina Webb face each
other in a runoff.
Ash, 40, a mortgage
lending officer, gathered
45 percent of the vote, with
366 votes on Tuesday, while
Webb, 45, a corrections of-
ficer, was next with 32 per- BRENIDA ASH
cent, or 264 votes.
Failing to qualify for the
runoff was former police
chief Anderson Williams, 51 4
who drew 23 percent, or 187
votes.
"I can't believe it," said a
delighted Allen. "I'm really
impressed. I'm moved. I ap- VALENITINIA
preciate the support the peo- WEBB
ple of Carrabelle have given
me, and I hope to make a
contribution to the city of Carrabelle."
Allen said he plans to get down to business
at the budget hearing later this month. Be-
cause of a sharp drop-off in the city's tax base,
Carrabelle is facing the choices of raising mill-
age or cutting back the city budget.

At the Carrabelle commission's
Sept. 3 meeting, Beth LaCivita, of His-
toric Florida Consulting, summarized
a survey she conducted over the past
year of cultural and historic resources
in the city.
The project sought to identify and
evaluate archaeological sites, build-
ings and structures constructed be-
fore 1959. During the study, 121 build-
ings were systematically recorded,
mapped and photographed based on
survey methods and procedures es-
tablished by the U.S. Department of
the Interior, National Park Service..
LaCivita said the property apprals-
er's office provided her with a list of
248 buildings that met these criteria.
Working from that list, she gathered
ora histr from some of Carrabelle's
The survey identified eight archae-
ological sites, including one 1,400-
year-old prehistoric village. LaCivita
said Carrabelle has been a seafood
destination for more than 1,400 years.
She recommended three cemeter-
ies Evergreen, Isle of Rest and
Third Street for inclusion in the
National Register of Historic Places.
Two historic districts the Carra-
belle town center and waterfront dis-
trict (1880s to 1959) and the World
WarlI Pipeline-Three Rivers Cottages
Historic District (1942-1959) were also
recommended as being potentially
eligible for registration. LaCivita said
these areas document Carrabelle's
railroad, lumber, naval stores, sea-
food, fishing and sponge industries
and its military significance and post-
war sports fishing era.
The Three Rivers site comprises

an oil pipeline that ran from Jack-
sonville to Camp Gordon Johnston
during World War II. Eight of 13 pre-
fabricated cottages constructed for
pipeline workers still stand at the site.
LaCivita said no evidence of the actu-
al pipeline remains, but Mayor Curley
Messer disagreed, claiming a section
of 8-inch metal pipe from the pipeline
stands on his property.
The survey recommended 12 build-
ings for possible listing on the Nation-
al Register. These included the two-
story brick building at 103 U.S. High-
way 98, which is now the Beho Folk
Art Gallery, formerly the Carrabelle
General Store; Harry's Bar; the Rex
Theatre / Gulf State Bank, later used
as the Camp Gordon Johnston Muse-


um; and the Crooked River Light.
The report contains a historic pres-
ervation plan for the city that discuss-
es the economic impact, development
and benefits of historic preservation,
including funding opportunities for
properties listed on the National Reg-
ister. Additional recommendations
made reference to land planning op-
tions and the potential for local, state
and national historic districts and any
special districts protecting and inter-
preting historically and culturally sig-
nificant sites.

ed and registered historic resources

George L. Sands Memorial Park in Carrabelle
has a stunning new addition, an illuminated
fountain that graces the center of a pond that
doubles as a stormwater management facility
The project combines serene grace with
practicality. Jim Waddell, of Inovia Consulting
Group, designers of the project, said the "Agua

i-- Stone Innovation with funds provided by a
Florida legislative appropriation. In addition
to creating a soothing display, the unit aerates

April and Frankie
Dalton have been left
practically homeless and
are seeking help in finding
a new trailer.
The family, who live at
761 Ridge Road, Eastpoint,
includes two teenage
boys. After their marriage,
Frankie adopted April's
two children by her first
husband: William, 13, and
Marcus, 15.
Until May, the little
family shared a pair of
single-wide trailers that
had been joined lengthwise.
April said the trailers
leaked along the entire
length of the seam. Mold
began to grow inside
and the boys developed
respiratory problems.
April was stricken with
pneumonia three times in a
single year.
"You've seen
mushrooms like the kind
that grow on trees?"
she asked. "Those were
growing inside my house."
After watching a
television documentary,
April began to fear the
illnesses were brought
on by exposure to mold
spores.
The Daltons went
to Moulder and Sons in
Panama City and were
approved for a loan on a
pre-owned, doublewide
trailer. They were sure they
could manage the $400 a
month note
Frankie is a
hardworking oysterman
but life on the bay has been
difficult for him lately, like
the rest of the county's
seafood workers. But with
Apnilns income they were
geAt the ime, Aril worked
as a paraprofessional
by the Franklin County
Schools, assisting for over
two years with the needs of
handicapped children. She
was trying hard to improve
her professional skills
and had completed the
requirements for a Success
Award, an honor received


budget cuts, a month before
the school system presented
her with her award.
"They told me it was
because of seniority," she
said. "You need three years
for tenure and I had two-
and-a-half."
The Daltons lost their
insurance when April
lost her job. They were
financially devastated.
There was no way they
could afford the new trailer.
"One day last week,
Frankie worked 'till 4 p.m.
and he only got six bags of
oysters," April said.
April has found work
again. She has a temporary
position working in the
consolidated school's
cafeteria, a position with
no benefits and little job
security. She also works
15 hours a week as a
custodian for the Boys and
Girls Club.


Frankie and April are
still living in the 20-foot
travel trailer they used
during demolition of their
old home. Marcus and
William are living in a
borrowed travel trailer,
which April said must be
returned at the start of
hunting season.
Their possessions are
in a storage shed that costs
$55 a month to rent.
"I just want my family
back in one building. It's
hard not being able to sit at
the table and have dinner,"
she said tearfully.
Andy Buchleitner,
program coordinator
for Aging with Dignity
of Tallahassee, is trying
to help. He said he has
located a trailer in Medart.
"It would cost $3,000
to buy the trailer and at
least that much to move
it," Buchleitner said. "But


there's another problem.
We'll need a variance to
bring it into the county. The
storm rating on the unit
is 2A and the county now
requires a 3A rating for new
trailers. It would be nice to
get one in the county."
Buchleitner is working
on the project through
Franklin's Promise and
that the Apalachicola
Riverkeeper is trying to
help.
April said she and
her husband have not
asked anyone other than
Bucheitner for help, but
as winter draws near, they
are becoming more and
more worried. She said she
doesn't know what they will
do when the entire family
has to share one 20-foot
travel trailer,
If you can help, call Andy
Buchleitner at 559-0525 or
the Times at 653-8688.

10 island
I have applied for a site
plan approval with the
county for a new building
to be located between the
St. George Inn and the St.
George Island leadingg
Company. Some people are
opposing it. .
The purpose of this
letter is to diffuse some
misinformation spread
by a small group of vocal
individuals with a clear
agenda:
1. The St. George Inn
is not going to be moved,
bulldozed or otherwise
relocated. Jan and Richard
Grant, the Innkeepers,
and I take personal pride
in improving it daily, and
offering a sampling of
Southern hospitality to all
visitors.
2. A new grocery
store has been needed
on St. George Island for
a long time: it will bring
to residents and visitors
the convenience of
more choices and better
prices. The only people
who would deny this fact
are the owners of the only
grocery store on the island.
They have been pushing a
petition aimed at stopping
their only competition! It's
a little tacky, but would
remain just that if in order
to push uninformed people
to sign, they had not been
trumpeting: "Who wants a
monstrosity in place of the
St. George Inn, which will
be removed?" (I would be .
the first person to sign their
petition if their facts were
correct!). This is misleading
and blatantly untrue.
3. We live in America,
where property rights
should mean something.
Unlike some of my
detractors, who are far
from meeting existing
codes concerning parking,
stormwater management
and other important issues,
my project will be in full
compliance. Consequently,
it is simply my right to build
on my property what meets
all codes and ordinances.
4. Next, the design of
the new building will be far
nicer than most buildings
in the commercial district
of St. George Island. The
only people who call it a
monstrosity are either the
ones who have not seen
the renderings, or the ones
who will have a business
in competition with it. The


Plug in, pig out, don't talk How the heart was torn from Tate's Hell
d t? +rt i v~ll~lt n llrr

Thursday, September 10, 2009


A4 | The Times


Tate's Hell, once a
primordial swamp, held
vast amounts of water in
storage, as if it were a giant
sponge. This water was
destined to work its way
into our bay slowly. It was
almost a never-ending flow LARR
of nutrients destined to feed Secl
shrimp, crabs, oysters and
many species of fish.
Then came Buckeye Cellulose,
promising jobs and prosperity for all
concerned. To do this they needed
permission from Franklin County
to drain Tate's Hell. Meetings were
held to determine if this would
be beneficial to the economic
development of Franklin County.
They painted a bright picture of jobs
promised.
To get the county to go along with
its proposal to drain Tate's Hell,
certain experts were consulted by
the county. These experts were to
be paid by the county and state to
advise them as to any adverse effect
of the draining of Tate's Hell. The
county had no way of knowing that
the experts were also being paid by
the Buckeye Cellulose Company.
These PhDs saw no noticeable
harm to the bay environment. And
any small amount of damage would
be offset by all the jobs brought to
Franklin County.
The county held public hearings.
Seafood workers attended, but
many had already been seduced into
believing the company line, along
with the expert PhDs testifying in


favor of draining the swamp.
Some of the meetings got
quite heated, as for and
against aired their opinions.
George Kirvin was opposed
to any alteration to Tate's
Hell. After he spoke, some
HAE wanted to throw him out
heTmsthe courthouse window.
Especially if it stood in the
way of progress.
Based on what seemed like
overwhelming public opinion in
favor of much-needed promised jobs,
and based on expert opinions from
certain environmental experts, the
decision was to allow the draining of
the swamp.
The ditches were dug and the
swamp drained. A chip mill was
built in Carrabelle. Pine trees
were planted by the thousands.
Herbicides were sprayed to kill
any unwanted vegetation. Tons
of fertilizers would be distributed
by helicopters. Beavers had to
be poisoned in order to stop their
desperate attempts to save their
habitat by plugging up the drainage
ditches. Slowly the heart was ripped
from Tate's Hell.
Today there is no chip mill or
vast number of promised jobs. But
the damage endures, a legacy of
environmental destruction of Tate's
Hell. Pine trees did not grow like the
company had predicted. The land
would be sold to the state of Florida.
However, the land was left in a state
of destruction.
Today, Tate's Hell is for the most


part left dry. When it rains, it is like
flushing a commode. All the water
is rushed into the bay at once, little
water is left for the dry months. The
Thousand Yard Bay, once a habitat for
large flocks of geese and ducks, is dry.
The freshwater spring that flowed into
the bay near Porter's Bar dried up.
As a consequence, oyster beds
near this flow of freshwater were lost.
This eventually led to the Highway 98
shoreline starting to erode. The New
River, once a deep river all the way
up to Gully Branch, is now chocked
with mud. In addition, we have seen a
continual decline in the productivity
ofApalachicola Bay.
Today we are engaged in a
struggle with Atlanta over water
coming down river from Lake
Lanier. Atlanta has a population
of 6 million people and growing.
Do we really think we will ever
win this water war? The answer
is, eventually, no. However, we
can control Tate's Hell's water by
restoring it as close as possible
to what Mother Nature created.
Allowing Tate's Hell to function
the way it was intended to. Holding
water back and slowly letting it
trickle and flow into the bay.
Florida should be just as diligent
in restoring Tate's Hell as they are in
restoring the Everglades. It is time
to take a stand to save our bay.

A week or so ago, I went
to the beach. I wore long
pants. I had implemented
my makeup lite regimen,
and I had even used the
curling iron on my hair. How
ridiculous is
that?

younger me
would have
ditched the


bathing suit,
RED WHITE anticipating
AND ROUX hours of
Denise Roux floating
on the
sea water
interspersed with time
baking my skin in the sun.
Back in the daywe didn't
understand SPF numbers
and generally lathered our
bodies with baby oil and
iodine or pure cocoa butter.
If we wanted a tan, we got
it the honest way, no lying
under lights in a machine at
the nail salon.
Now, people get a tan
before they go to the beach.
OK, I was self-conscious.
There would be teens
present, and I wasn't about
to expose my 56 -year-old
thighs. I could just hear
it, "OMG, did you see Ms.
Roux's legs?"
The event was a cook-
out for the school Brain
Bowl team and sponsors.
Barbara Sanders has been
the coach for the past few
years, and she was passing
the torch to Priscilla 'lIcker,
a new science and math
teacher. Barbara and her
husband, WK., organized a
wiener roast on St. George
Island complete with a real
fire, sharpened palmetto
sticks for the dogs, multiple
toppings, chips, soda and
the makings for S'mores.
Attending were past,
present and potential team
members. Priscilla brought
her daughter, and science
teacher Heidi Montgomery
brought her two young girls.
Barbara's daughter, Claire,
was there with her little
guy, Dalton. The under-10
set were the only ones who
ventured into the water,
They knew the beach ritual
of water, sand and good
food.
Not so for the teens
and grownups. There was
not a single bathing suit
in evidence. Everyone
huddled under the beach
tent shelters. Many didn't
even take off their shoes. (I,
at least, rolled up my pants
and waded in the sur).
One adolescent even had
adorned herself with false
eyelashes.
We had great fun,
and there was lively
conversation, some of the
time. Every single student,
except one, had a phone

new building will complete
the facade on the city block
fronting Franklin Boulevard,
for its utter improvement.
5. Thirty new permanent
jobs! It might not mean
much to some of the
project detractors, but it
means a lot to me. In an
environment where people
lose their jobs faster than
they can find new ones,
and in an environment
where paying the next
power bill can represent an
insurmountable obstacle, 30
new jobs in a new grocery
store are a tremendous
asset to the county.
6. Construction jobs. This
fall and winter do not look
exactly exciting for business
and activity on the island
and in the county. Yet, my
new project will employ
construction workers, who
otherwise would very likely
have remained idle.
7. Increased property tax
base. Everyone who owns
real property in Franklin
County received in the last
weeks a notice of proposed
taxes. An increased tax
base is the only way to
lower taxes, all other factors
remaining equal...And the
only way to increase the tax
base is to build.
In short, the only
scary thing about the new
building is the amount of
misrepresentations its
detractors invented. The
new project has nothing
but positive consequences,
including healthy
competition.

No one questions Johnny
Richard's love for this Bay,
and that the leadership of
the Franklin County Seafood
Workers Association
has had some legitimate
expenses in recent years.
But serious questions
have been raised by the
treasurer and other officers
of the FCSWA over how
tens of thousands of dollars
in funds have been spent.
There are thousands of
dollars of payments for such
items as computer repair,
and the FCSWA president
and secretary simply have
not provided answers that
satisfy other officers.
The point: these
questionable checks and
expenses were written


without the formal
knowledge or approval of
a majority of the FCSWA
board of directors or
members at large.ITwo
members wrote tens of
thousands of dollars in
checks (sometimes to each
other) with no independent
oversight.
Adding to the concerns,
one independent treasurer
was forced out of the
Seafood Workers for asking
tough questions; and
just last week Linda
Raffield, secretary to the
organization, took the
checkbook away from the
current treasurer for the
second time.
The time has come
for specific answers to
these questions. There
is general agreement on
an independent audit of
FCSWA books, but that is
only part of the answer.
The Seafood Workers
have called for a public
meeting this Thursday,
Sept. 10, at 6:30 p.m. at the
Eastpoint Firehouse. The
core question is whether two
individuals are accountable
to their membership, or
if they can simply run the
organization and spend
money as they please, while
other FCSWA volunteers get
nothing for their time.

Wor ker s' leader S
In the August 27 issue
of the Apalachicola Times,
there was a letter to the
editor criticizing the
leadership of the Franklin
County Seafood Workers
Association Inc (FCSWA).
At the risk of quoting myself
I have to say again what I
first wrote in a letter to the
Times earlier this year:
As a member of the
Riverkceepers staff I
have worked directly
and indirectly with the
Franklin County Seafood
Workers Association Inc.
(FCSWA) for the past five
years. Iam very proud
and appreciative of their
efforts and dedication.
Their oyster harvesters are
- as I have said repeatedly
- the "frciontline soldiers
in our Water Wars." In
particular I have worked
with the elected officers
ofthe organization as we
struggled to counter the
significant threats to the
Apalachicola Bay. The most


significant, and ongoing,
threat to the health and
productivity of our Bay
has been the reduced
freshwater flows. Athanta
is still taking our waters
without Congressional
approval. John Richards,
as president FCSWA, and
Linda Raffield, secretary,
have had a critical role in
"telling the story" ofthe
reduced flows threat and
its impact on the most
productive estuary in
America, Apalachicoba Bay.
Time and again,
they have taken various
regional, state and national
media out onto the Bay
to see for themselves
- "~han2ds-on/~eyes-on"~
- the predation that occurs
on oyster beds in the low
flow condition imposed by
the Corps' Revised Interim
Operations Plan (or RIOP).
"See for yourselves. Here's
what's happening to our
oysters." These "visitors"
have included national
TV cameras, as well as
decision-makcers, such as
the Commanders ofthe
South Atlantic Region and
the M~obile district of the
Corps of Engineers. When
there was a threat that
the oyster re-bay money
would be reduced, John and
Linda went to 'allahassee
and lobbied successfully
against that budget cut.
They believe passionately
in their oystermen and the
health and productivity of
our Bay. ney talce their
jobs very seriously. And I
and River keepers and
the community should be
most thancful1 that they do.
Riverkeeper successfully
applied for two small grants
to support FCSWA in
organizational development
and began working with
the elected officers of the
organization to do just
that. Part of those grant
monies have been used to
compensate Linda and John
for their expenses in going
to Tallahassee to lobby for
relay monies and in the
execution of other specified
tasks in the work plan for
those grants, such as on-
water briefings to media
representatives. As you
should note from the above,
that money was well-spent
in behalf of the Apalachicola
Bay and the oyster
harvesters that depend on it
for their livelihood.
Based on the ongoing
contract between their
organization, FCSWA, and

Baba Ram Dass, who
was born Richard Alpert
in 1 972 '

within arm's reach. Some
dangled from the wrist,
others were in a pocket,
and many sat on the thigh
ready for instant recognition
and response. The grown-
ups were less guilty. Their
phones were tucked away,
within audible distance if the
distinctive ring tone came
through.
At one point, I noticed
that five people were texting
or talking on their phones.
After the cook-out, I
started thinking about
Baba Ram Dass and his
1971 book, "Be Here Now."
Of course, it represents an
era of New Age spirituality
and the psychobabble so
present during that time.
He did LSD in the sixties
with Timothy Leary and
studied with the Maharishi
in India. Now he lives in
Maui and still conducts
seminars. Ram Das even
has a Pacebook page. Before
my research, I didn't know
he was still alive. Amazingly,
the book is still in print. The
ideas might be relevant for
boomers, but today's kids
are far beyond the concept
of living in the moment.
Perhaps their moment
is something different from
ours. Maybe they need
multiple stimuli constantly
or they get bored. I know
that if a group of kids is
having a meal together,
it is not considered rude
to take calls or text at the
table. They do allow that it
is bad manners to talk on
the phone and text another
friend simultaneously.
I am fascinated by their
plugged-in world, and I feel
a little sad at the same time.
What does it take to get their
total, undivided attention?
Just how serious does a
situation have to be so that
the phones are turned off
Could it be a wedding, a
funeral, a quiet dinner or an
intimate encounter?
How do we teach them
when it is appropriate and
even necessary to tune in,
turn the outside world off
and live in the moment?

Richard Sands said
Carrabelle is not respon-
sible for recent flooding.
At the Sept. 3 city com-
mission meeting, Carra-
belle Commissioner Rich-
ard Sands held up a copy
of the Times containing a
recent article about flood-
ing along U.S. Highway 98
in downtown Carrabelle.
"This was the work of
the state," he said. "Some
of us plain folks, like Keith
Mock, tried to tell them
you can't block off water
like that and leave it with
no place to go."
Sands said state officials
were aware that there was
a problem with drainage at
the site of the flood.
Commissioner Jim
Brown said state officials
would meet on Sept. 8 to
discuss the matter. He
said they have two pos-
sible solutions to the
drainage problems and
are weighing the merits of
each.

the Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, the officers
of the FCSWA organized and executed
the oyster relay program to transplant
oysters to the public bars for the next
season, much as a farmer prepares his
fields for the next harvest. This activity,
administered by the FCSWA, provided
needed compensation, according to


the state contract, to participating
oyster harvesters. And the productivity
of the oyster bars of the bay will have
been measurably improved to combat
the lasting effects of reduced flows
during the recent drought.
John Richards and Linda
Raffield take justified pride in these
accomplishments and should be

grillin'! They had a passion for cooking' good food and loved to serve
it to others for feedback on the taste. After years of perfecting recipes
and receiving positive feedback form others, it became apparent that
this could be more than just a hobby. After many requests form the
nephew, (raised as Uncle Dale's son) to send their recipes in to Food
Network they settled on keeping their recipes and buying a food

she hoped the survey "will be the

economy and the budget."
He said the city needed
to look at controlling its
budget and at bringing
more jobs into the city.
Ash and Webb promised
a vigorous campaign over
the next two weeks.
"I'm 100 votes behind.
I'm surel'llcatch up," Webb
said. "I'm in it to win it. I'll
get out there and work."
Ash, who had a large
following of supporters as-
sembled outside the elec-
tions office, said she ex-
pected a runoff.
"More or less, this is


what I thought would hap-
pen," she said. "This is
it, and we have to get out
there and hopefully pull
those Andy Williams sup-
porters. We'll see. I don't
take anything for granted.
I'm confident I can win it."
Supervisor of Elections
Ida Cooper Elliott said
there will be no early vot-
ing in advance of the Sept.
22 runoff. Absentee bal-
lots should be available by
the week's end or Monday
and can be picked up dur-
ing regular weekday office
hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Elliott said absentee bal-
lots must arrive back in the
elections office no later than
7 p.m. on Sept. 22, so mail-
ing them out and getting


them back, while possible,
must be done promptly.
She said balloting went
smoothly all day, with five
poll workers in Apalachic-
ola at the Armory and five
in Carrabelle at the Senior
Citizens Center,
While Elliott's office
counted the ballots and ad-
vised in the process, the cit-
ies conducted the elections
and staffed the polls, with
results in Apalachicola com-
ing in a little slower than
what is typically the case.
"They went step-by-
step," Elliott said. "They're
new. They wanted every-
thing done right."

tions office at 653-9520.


she much preferred not
laying off any employees
than granting pay hikes.
"I know how important
it is to get raises and bo-
nuses," said Mayor Van
Johnson. "But we don't
want to send mixed signals.
We don't know what next
year is going to be like. I
don't want to build up any
hopes."
The audience members
were not supportive of the
idea of pay hikes.
"I just attended the
Progress Energy workshop
and not a single person got
up there and wanted any in-
crease on Progress Energy
and I think that it would
send a really bad message
to hand out bonuses based
on that alone and the fact
with the economy," said Di-
eter Ambos.
At Tuesday night's
regular meeting, the city
commission awarded a
contract for construct the
long-awaited wastewater
re-use project.
The $7.57 million proj-
ect was awarded to Royal
American, out of Panama
City, contingent on a series
of approvals from the State
Revolving Loan Flind, the
Florida Communities Trust
and the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection.


The city had budgeted
$8 million for the project,
originally to be financed
with a low-interest govern-
ment loan that required
repayment of $750,000 per
year. The project will now
be paid entirely out of fed-
eral stimulus monies.
Richard Delp, project
manager for Baskerville-
Donovan Inc., said Royal
American has assured him
he will use local labor "if
he has a trade he can uti-
lize." Johnson and other
city commissioners urged
Royal American to use as
much as local labor as pos-
sible.
Delp said the re-use
project includes build-
ing a $1.5 million storage
tank and pump station as
well as installing a series
of pipelines and irrigation
technology that will enable
the city to spread sanitary,
reused wastewater effluent
across 700 acres of private
and public land.
Delp said he expected
work on the project to start
within 60 days, and that
it would be completed by
May2011.
Origins of the project
date back to 2002, and have
included hundreds of acres
bought by the city using
Florida Communities Trust
monies.

Times City Editor
The Franklin County Seahawks
put on a solid first-half showing
Friday night in their season open-
er, capped off with a stirring tribute
to retired educator Mikel Clark, in
whose honor the sports complex
was named during halftime.
After that, though, they plum-
meted down to earth.
The Seahawk that flew east got
the better of the one that didn't
leave its nest as South Walton
swooped past Franklin County 37-
6 in Eastpoint.
Vexing Coach Josh Wright's
defenses with a trap play that
chewed up rushing yards, South
Walton opened al4-6 halftime lead
and then added 23 unanswered in
the second half to win their season
opener.
"That little trap play, they didn't
have an answer to," said South
Walton Coach David Barron.
In a game marked by several
fumbles for both Seahawk squads,
South Walton got on the board first
with a 7-yard rush up the middle
by senior Jay Gatto, a transfer
from Crestwood, Ky.
Sophomore kicker Jonathan
O'Hara, a walk-on from Georgia,
then hit the first of four extra
points on the night, topped off with
a 32-yard field goal with 8:38 left in
the game
Franklin County senior fullback
D.J. Lane gave his team their only
score of the night, with 3:24 left in
the first quarter, when he rumbled
in from 18 yards out.
South Walton scored twice more
in the second quarter, when senior
running back Bryant Adams ran
in from 13 yards out midway in the
stanza, and Gatto scored his sec-
ond touchdown of the night with a
6-yard burst with two minutes left
in the half.
South Walton opened the sec-
ond half with a 14-yard scoring
strike from senior quarterback
D Imis Smrith to junior wide re-

The Seahawks put a period on
their victory with three minutes
left in the game, when sophomore
quarterback Damon Asbury ran it
in from a yard out, after Franklin
County tried unsuccessfully on a
fourth down from just in front of
their own goal line.
"You got to go down swinging,"
Wright said. "I'm disappointed in
the result but not disappointed
in the effort. We'll be back full
strength next week. It'll turn."
Wright and his staff thanked
the community for a tremendous
turnout.
"Though the squad stumbled
out of the gate against South Wal-
ton, falling to the 24th-ranked team
in 1A, they look to rebound with a
proud showing against the visit-
ing Hornets of Cottondale Friday
night," he said.
"We got to be better tacklers
and be able to adjust to what we're
getting out there. The miscues

on to help provide leadership for

earned District Accreditation by
Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools with Clark's help. He
worked closely with finance direc-
tors to assist in developing a sys-
tem for formulating staffing plans,
organizational charts, and job de-
scriptions to help with financial
management, a critical aspect of
educational administration.
During the last several years in
the district office, Clark served in
a leadership role in the district's
consolidation and construction of
new school facilities, including the
athletic complex.
"Throughout his career, he em-
phasized commitment and team-
hrke for thesgooh. oHdstptsued
worked to maintain good relations
with colleagues, students, parents
and the community," Marks said.
"He worked to encourage others
and promoted the district motto
he often repeated: 'Together we
are building a brighter future, one
student at a time.' "
Following his retirement last
year, Clark remains active in the
First Baptist Church of Carra-
belle, where he serves as a dea-
con. He enjoys spending time with
his wife, Othelia, their daughters,
all the grandchildren and friends.
Fighting back tears, Clark
thanked his wife and family for
all their support and said he was
grateful for the honor bestowed
him.
"Throughout my career, it was
my privilege to work with dedi-
cated superintendents and school
board members in the pursuit of
improving the school system," he
said. "I have great respect for my

had fun and encouraged athletes
to give their best to reach their full-
est potential," Marks said, noting
Clark won two conference champi-
onships in baseball, and a district
championship and participation in
the state playoffs in football.
Beginning his administra-
tive career as assistant principal
in Carrabelle, Clark chaired the
self-study committee that led to
the school's first accreditation by
Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools. During his tenure
as principal, the school hosted
educators from other districts to
observe the school's cooperative
environment, a compliment to the

Flanked by members of the

Marks narrated the naming cer-
emony at halftime, as a giant sign
stood behind her, wrapped in plas-

by Athletic Director Mike Todd.
"Mike Clark came to Frank-

As part of Weems Arts
in Medicine, the Bedside
Arts program will host a
workshop Thursday and
Friday, Sept. 17 and 18.
According to the pro-
gram's coordinator Liz
Sisung, Bedside Arts
reaches out to a variety of
ages throughout the county
at many sites. Weems, pri-
vate homes, senior centers,
assisted care rehabilitation
facilities, schools and li-
braries are but a few of the
facilities to be visited.
Bedside Artists are
those who like to work with
people, listen to their sto-
ries, read them a story, play
some music, create visual
arts or do just about any-
thing that will help to im-
prove the lives and health
of those in the county.
Playback Theatre, a
part of Bedside Arts, com-
prises a troupe of actors
trained in the art of lis-
tening, relating and play-
ing back stories they hear
from a storyteller. Suc-
cess is achieved when the
teller shows by a smile or
a tear that the actors have
accurately reflected what
the teller felt when he or
she told the story.
A person does not have


to have acting experience
to be a Playback actor, just
a desire to share a ray of
sunshine. Paula Paterson,
artist-in-residence from
the Shands Arts in Medi-
cine program, will conduct
the Playback training at
the Eastpoint Fire House,
on Sixth Street in East-
point. Thursday's training
will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
and Friday's will be from 9
a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch will be
provided.
Barbara Esrig, also
a Shands artist-in-
residence, will conduct two
sessions in oral history on
Thursday, from 9 to 11 a.m.
and 1 to 2 p.m., at the Cot-
ton Exchange on the cor-
ner of Avenue E and Water
Street in Apalachicola.
These two-hour classes
will introduce what oral
histories are and why they
are important and include
a step-by-step guide on
how to do oral histories in
a family, community or hos-
pital setting.
Participating in the oral
history workshop will ben-
efit anyone interested in
enriching their Bedside
Arts skills.
If you are interested in
taking part, then please

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor


After a little more than a decade as
Apalachicola's fire chief, and 24 years
on the force, Bert Simmons was treated
Aug. 31 to a retirement dinner at City
Hall in Battery Park.
"My message to you is number one,
safety first as always," he told the gath-
ering. "Then take care of the job at hand.
You are a very caring bunch; it takes up
a lot of your time.
"Now I can see how much time it
took. It's hard to adjust to not getting up
and running, but I'm coming along fine,"
he said. "I drive by the station some-
times and see the trucks gone. My first
thought is where are they? And then re-
alize it isn't my place now to know where
they are, but to just hope everybody is
safe and maybe it's just a brush fire."
Simmons, who moved here as a teen-
ager before graduating from Chapman
High School in l965, became chief in Jan.
1998, after the death of Newman Mar-
shall. George Watkins was selected to
succeed Simmons, when he announced
his retirement a few months ago.
Watkins expressed his gratitude for
Simmons' leadership in his introduc-
tion. "It's been a real good ride," he said.
"You helped us come out of the cave and
brought it to a modern department."
Simmons also received a plaque from
Mayor Van Johnson, who noted that "it's
not long enough to put on it the things
you have meant to the city. I remember
him as a go-getter, making sure you
guys have protective gear."
A veteran of the Navy, Simmons han-
dled aviation maintenance and flight
scheduling during a stint in Naples, Ita-
ly with the VS-31 Squadron, attached at
the time with the aircraft carrier U.S.S.
Wasp.
After being stationed at Quonset
Point, RI, Simmons left the Navy in
1970, and worked briefly at the paper
mill in Port St. Joe before opening the
Gulf service station at U.S. 98th and
Fourth Street, which he operated for
four years.
In 1976, he married the former
Vicky Patterson. After a more than
30-year marriage, she passed away in
Sept. 2007.
In the 1970s and early 80s, Simmons
worked as a heavy equipment operator
for Collins Construction on St. George
Island, and then as a truck driver for
Leavins Seafood. Since 1983 he has

Department.
been employed by J.V Gander Distribu- I~u~~eI


tors, Inc.
Simmons joined the department in
1986, prompted by an invite, if he recalled
correctly, from Joe Zingarelli. "I lived so
close and worked so close," he said. "It
was three-and-one-half blocks from my
house to the fire station."
Simmons recounted his experiences
as chief in his remarks to the dinner, be-
ginning by thanking the rank-and-file.
"Everything that has been done to make
the fire department a better organiza-
tion can be directly attributed to you,"
he said. "I might have been the quarter-
back, but without the team, you, nothing
would have gotten done.
"WYe got the training going, we have
almost everybody equipped with suits as
needed," he said. "We received new SC-
BAs (self contained breathing appara-
tus) and lightweight bottles and bought
a top-of-the-line compressor to fill them.
"WYe worked very hard to get the Jaws
and have used them successfully when
needed," he said, recalling the many pri-
vate fundraisers that helped raise the
nearly $11,000 needed to buy the Jaws of
Life extricating equipment.
"Our response time is as you know
is one of the quickest in the state for a
volunteer fire department," he said, not-
ing the department had been tied at one
time with Jasper.
Simmons also pointed out that fire-
fighters now carry half of their original
35 pounds of equipment.


Ginger Creamer and Bert Simmons
crack up after Creamer presented
the retiring fire chief with a toy fire
station.

"I love each and every one of you guys
and gals, you put forth effort when most
would run," he said. "When you were
asked to do something you did it, never a
bad word. You helped me through a very
difficult time in my life, of which I will
never forget your friendship and your
generosity.
"You are like family. We have had a lot
of laughs, a few tears, and fought back
emotions at different times," he said,
then turning to the woman in his life,
Cheryl Gainer, of Southport, before add-
ing that "I am truly enjoying life thanks

sweetheart, Cheryl Gainer, show off

to this beautiful lady right here.
"Thankyou all for everything all these
years," Simmons said in closing, before
adding "Oh yeah. And Ginger I know you
have something add, what is it?"
As it happened Ginger Creamer did
have something to add. She noted that
since everyone on the department knew
how much Simmons wanted the city to
have a new fire station for the city, she
would give him one, and then pulled out
from behind her back a plastic toy fire
station.

Education Encore re-
turns to the Gulf Coast
Community College Gulf/
Franklin Center this fall
with several new courses
and a few old favorites.
A program of the col-
lege's Office of Lifelong
Learning, Education En-
core is designed for "ac-
tive adults" desiring to
learn new skills.
Classes meet on six
consecutive Wednesdays
from Sept. 23 to Oct. 28.
A $60 fee allows students
to register for up to three
classes.
"Our motto is,'No tests,
no grades, no stress, just
fun,' and it's enjoyable ed-


ucation for active adults,"
said Gulf Coast's Coordina-
tor of Education Programs
and Partners Jim Barr.
Among the new addi-
tions to this year's lineup
are Basic Home Repair,
Photo Safari for Photog-
raphy Enthusiasts, Acryl-
ic Painting 1, Computer
Graphics and Investing
101.
Landy Luther will helm
the Basic Home Repair
Course, which promises
to make students handy
around the house.
Students will learn to
hang photos, replace elec-
trical plugs, clearajammed
sink, fix a leaky toilet, clear
a clogged drain, install
weather stripping and
generally give Bob Villa a


run for his money.
Those who enjoy tinker-
ing with digital cameras
will benefit from three
courses offered by profes-
sional photographer Sue
Bull.
Bull teaches Digital
Camera Beginning, Digi-
tal Image Editing with
Photoshop Elements and
Photo Safari for Photog-
raphy Enthusiasts, which
will allow students to cap-
ture scenes in a variety of
interesting outdoor set-
tings.
Panama City artist Jen-
nifer Bonaventura, who
has displayed her work at
Port St. Joe's "A Taste of
the Coast" festival, will be
teaching two new courses
in Acrylic Painting, as well
as an Exploring Drawing
class.
Adults desiring advice
on investing their money
can enroll in the Invest-
ing 101 course, taught by
Brooke Baxley, a financial
advisor and wealth man-
agement specialist with
the firm Raymond James
and Associates.
Course topics include
common investor mis-
takes, downturns and re-
coveries and investing for
retirement.
Though the college has
previously offered an as-
tronomy course, there's a
new twist this fall.

nigh ats e Apa ahio


National Estuarine Re-
search Reserve (ANERR),
which is equipped with
telescopes and NASA im-
ages.
The course, taught by
ANERR education and
training specialist Alan
Knothe, promises to "un-
ravel the mysteries of
gravity and relativity and
venture back in time to
the beginning of our uni-
verse."
Computer illiterates
need not give up hope. Vet-
eran instructor Bill Barker
returns to teach Computer
Basics, Computer Graph-
ics and Computer Internet
and E-mail.
Barr noted Barker's
outstanding classroom
technique and long tenure
with the college.
"I consider Bill a mas-
ter teacher. He has taught
the computer classes at
the Gulf/Franklin Center
since the program's incep-
tion (in 2001)," said Barr.
Though fall enrollment
usually hovers between 50-
75 students, Barr is antici-
pating a good season.
"I'm thinking these new
classes should entice some
new people to come in,"
said Barr, who described
former Encore students
as the program's greatest
ambassadors.
"The best publicity we
have is our students tell-
i ohe students about

Family School, Quinn High School and
Florida A & M University. He graduated
with honors and was commissioned

Army.
His first assignment was at Fort Benning,

Rock, Ark. After being promoted to first lieuten-
ant, he resigned his commission to return to
the family business. After becoming a licensed

State Employment Service as a veteran
representative. He retired in 1999 from
the State of Florida, Job Services in
Marianna as an employment specialist.
Rhodes was a founding member
of The Gent's Club, Inc., and member
of Hiram Masonic Lodge No. 67; the
IODES NACCP for whom he distributed "The
Drum" newspaper; and Board of Pro-
fessional Engineers.
Final rites were held Thursday morning,
Aug. 27 at St. John Missionary Baptist Church in

Herbert Rhodes and wife Mary, of Panama City,
and retired Col. Cephus S. Rhodes, and wife

Sept. 5, 1952 March 7, 2003
Happy 56th birthday,
Robert.
You'll be with me always.
Love,
Robin


Sept. 11
Lest we forget, let us preserve and honor the memory of this
tragic day in our nation's history.
Nine-eleven burns in our memory eight years after terrorists
attached without warning; and we mourn the loss of those brave,
innocent victims who died that tragic morning.
Our nation was outraged and bodily scarred, but survived;
and from that cruel act our spirit of patriotism and brotherly love
revived.
When our country's freedom was threatened, we rallied to the
cause; to rid the world of tyranny and preserve liberty for all.
We'll wage this war against terrorists' evil forces of hate; until
the healing power of love brings peace to the whole human race.
We shall forever remember the brutal attack on our beloved
land; and thank the Lord for our God-given blessing to be an
American.
God bless America,
Mary Westberg

Lanark NEWS
Boy, what a good time and great
meal we had at The Legion on Labor
Day! When I got there at 2:30 p.m., there
was a good crowd and they just kept
coming. Thanks for all your support and
thank you for all who worked so hard to
make it happen.
Hope you have planned to have
breakfast, Saturday, Sept. 12. The LANIARK NIEWS
members of The Lanark Golf Club Jim Welsh
will sponsor the second Saturday
breakfast and continue through the
season. I had put in last week's column that the Lanark
Village Association would put it on. Nobody told me any
different until they read my column. See you at Chillas
Hall, doors open at 8 a.m. Your donation will benefit our
golf club.
And speaking of breakfast, the volunteers at The
Franklin County Senior Center would be glad to fixyou
a plate of eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, on 'Iesday
mornings. Serving begins at 8 a.m. also. Your donation
will be for the center. Thanks!
Coffee Hour at Chillas Hall is Monday through
Saturday, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Why not stop in while
you are getting the mail, and enjoy a cup of coffee, or
two? Sometimes there is coffee cake or something to go
with it.
The Thrift Shop in the Lanark Plaza has gone back
to seasonal hours of Mon through Saturday, 9 a.m. to
noon. Drop in and look around and visit with Betty and
Sharon.
Doesn't anyone pay attention to signs anymore?
Took Jerry Hartnett to the VA last week. The woman
sitting across from me went to the vending area and
came back with a soda and chips. The sign above her
chair read "No Food or Drinks in Waiting Area." On our
way to dinner we were at a stop signal. A big sign on the
post in the left hand turn lane indicated "No U'Irn."
The first two cars did just that! What's wrong with these
pictures?
Be kind to one another and check in on the sick and
housebound. Keep smiling; you may not feel any better
but everyone else will wonder what you're up to!
Until next time, God Bless America, our troops, the
poor, homeless, and hungry.

A man on a weekend fishing trip
with hi s family died after a set of wave s
rolled their boat, wildlife officials said
Sunday.
James Pullen, 82, of Titus, Ala., was
pronounced dead Saturday at George
E. Weems Memorial Hospital in Apala-
chicola, said Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission spokesman
Stan Kirkland.
Pullen and his wife, Emmer Pullen,
were about 300 yards offshore near In-
dian Pass in their son-in-law Charles
Cummings' boat, Kirkland said. Also
in the boat were Cummings' wife, 49-
year-old Ada Cummings, and family
friend Sarah Paris, 50.
The others were treated for minor
injuries after the incident.
It began about 2 p.m. Saturday,


when the 57-year-old Charles Cum-
mings, seated in the 18-foot boat's
front pedestal seat, saw the boat was
about to take on three waves.
"He tried to crank the boat, couldn't
get it cranked," Kirkland said. "And
the boat rolled."
Everyone went in the water, and
none were wearing life jackets, he
said. The Pullens apparently couldn't
swim. They clung to the overturned
boat instead.
But James Pullen had a history of
heart trouble and a Pacemaker, Kirk-
land said. He started having problems
almost immediately.
Charles and Ada Cummings
grabbed him and swam, pulling him
toward shore. They made it there,
but Pullen already was limp, Kirkland
said.
Others on the beach called 911. Two
nurses, who were visiting the area


from Georgia, started CPR. It wasn't
enough, as Pullen was pronounced
dead at the hospital a short time later.
There was no indication any alco-
hol was involved, and Kirkland said no
charges were expected.
He said the Pullens' youngest son
was killed about two weeks ago in a
hit-and-run crash in Alabama. This
trip, a visit to the family's retreat in
Gulf County, "was kind of a getaway
for them, after everything that had
happened," Kirkland said.
Pullen's death came a day after
three others were killed in an area
boating accident. On Friday, a husband
and wife in their 70s and another fami-
ly member in her 60s, all from Daphne,
Ala., were killed in a glancing collision
in Choctawhatchee Bay off Okaloosa
Island.
They weren't wearing life jackets,
either, FWC officials said.

the sale, call Lois at 653-

The second annual
WoodStork Music Festival

silent auction items.

one of our best fundraisers
last year, but it's only suc-
cessful if we can provide
great prizes for our bid-
