Coach Josh Wright. "We didn't
fold where they normally fold.
I was truly impressed with the
leadership of our coaches. We
just kept on believing and final-
ly we got to the shore tonight."
The historic victory followed
a pledge by Wright at the after-
noon's pep rally, when the first-
year coach vowed the Cotton-
dale Hornets would enter the
record books that night.
"Cottondale's going to make
history," he told the students.

Franklin County's Mikel
Clark Sports Complex, newly

site for hope and victory Friday
night when the Seahawks shut-

history.
Combining two first-half
touchdowns with a fourth-
quarter defensive stand, the Se-
ahawks, now 1-1, put a period to
their first two seasons of frus-
tration, which had been marked
by a 21-game losing streak.

With a couple Hornet pen-
alties adding to the gain, the
Seahawks stood only 11 yards
from the end zone. Senior full-

One suspected case of
H1N1 influenza, common-
ly known as the "swine
flu," has been confirmed
in Franklin County and a
second suspected case has
appeared.
Dr. Eugene Charbon-
neau, medical director of
the county health depart-
ment, said Friday a case of
H1N1 has been document-
ed in an elementary school
student, and that a second
possible case, of a student
at the Apalachicola Bay
Charter School, has been
identified.
Charbonneau said the
first child, an 8-year-old,
has completely recovered.
The announcement came
after the results of diag-
nostic tests proved posi-
tive for H1N1.


The second suspected
case showed few symp-
toms other than a high
temperature. The sick
child tested positive for in-
fluenza A, which Charbon-
neau said meant there is a
70 percent chance this was
also H1N1.
"We knew it was out
there," he said. "Now that
we have proof, nothing
changes. We want to urge
people to take the usual
precautions. Wash your
hands, cover your mouth
when you cough or sneeze
and please keep your child
home from school if he or
she is sick.
"How people will react
to the H1N1 virus depends
on how active your immune
system is to this virus.
There is more concern for
someone with a respiratory

Because of problems
with the air conditioning
system and contamination
by mold and mildew, the
county health department
will move its operation from
12th Street to the former
Chapman School, now an
administration building, at
98 12th Street, at the corner
ofAvenue E.
Director Wesley Tice
told county commissioners
the move was necessary at
an emergency meeting on


Sept. 9. Tice said that until a
complete assessment of the
problem had been done, it
was impossible to provide a
timeline for the repairs.
"At an indoor air qual-
ity assessment done in Nov.
2008. The inspector said
there were only normal
levels of mold inside the
building," Tice said. "But
now there have been two
workman's compensation
claims filed and the mildew
is visible in the building."
All clinical services have
already been moved to the
health department building


in Carrabelle. Tice said he
had begun transitioning the
offices to the new location.
Alan Pierce, director of
administrative services for
the county, said the Chap-
man Building requires less
than $1,000 to refit it for the
health department. He said
the offices could be relocat-
ed by next week.
"We will be installing an
on-demand hot water heat-
er and making some other
changes," he said. "The IT
(information technology)
system doesn't require a
human attendant. It will
remain in the permanent
building and the workers

required for repairs to the
building.
On Tuesday evening, the
county commission hired
Mark Hartman, PE. of Tal-

to do the forensic analysis,
at a cost under $10,000.

$1.2 million.
Pierce told commission-
ers the air conditioners
were no longer under war-
ranty and he did not believe
the state would provide any
funds to make repairs.
"The state built it and it


is a faulty design," he said.
He said the state archi-
tect had asked him to have
the building inspected by a
certified forensic engineer.
Once the inspection is com-
plete, it will be possible to

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's Division of Law
Enforcement was busy last
week citing people with
harvesting oysters from re-
stricted waters.
officer Carmon Brownell
received information from
an FWC investigator that a
vessel had been illegally har-
vesting from the ElevenlVMile
area of Apalachicola Bay. Af-
ter receiving a description of
the vessel, Brownell boarded
the vessel as it returned to
port and conducted vessel
safety and saltwater prod-
ucts inspection.
The two harvesters de-


nied having any oysters
on board, but upon further
inspection, two-and-a-half
bags of oysters were found
concealed within the ves-
sel. The harvesters then
admitted to harvesting the
oysters from closed waters,
and were cited with misde-
meanor charges of harvest-
ing oysters from a condition-
ally approved area during a
closure. The oysters were
returned back to the water
alive.
Officer 11tavis Huckeba
located two commercial oys-
ter vessels that appeared to
be harvesting oysters from
restricted waters adjacent


to the Apalachicola River
Channel. Huckeba obtained
assistance from Officers
Steven Cook and Chasen
Yarborough to get a better
look at the precise location
of the vessels and to ascer-
tain whether they were ac-
tively engaged in harvesting
oysters.
Cook and Yarborough
confirmed the vessels' lo-
cation and activities from
a concealed location on the
mainland. Huckeba pro-
ceeded to the vessels, which
attempted to leave the re-
stricted waters as he ap-
proached. He stopped both
vessels and then directed


them to the mainland for in-
spection.
Upon inspection, the two
vessels contained 14 bags
of oysters harvested from
the restricted waters. The
four suspected harvesters
admitted to knowing they
were in restricted waters
while harvesting. The four
were cited with 10 misde-
meanor charges pertaining
to harvesting oysters from
conditionally restricted wa-
ters, no saltwater products
license and no Apalachicola
Bay oyster permit. The 14
bags of oysters were seized
and returned alive back into
the restricted waters.


THE CAMP GORDON JOHNSTON ASSOCIATION

wVoRLD WrAR II MUSEUM/


proudly present...




MU~S U


Located in Carrabelle, Florida, the Camp Gordon Johnston WWll Museum is considered the
repository of a most important part of Franklin County, Florida history. During those dark and
uncertain days of WWll, the training that occurred here, the facilities that were built, and the
over 250 thousand soldiers, sailors and airmen left an impact that is still felt today, over sixt
years later. From the wells drilled by U.S. Army Engineers that still provide water, the homes and
roads of Lanark Village, the airfields in Apalachicola and Carrabelle, and the many cottages in
St. Teresa, one can still, after all these years, feel the sense of history from that by-gone time.

When entering the hallway leading to the museum entrance, the visitors will see photographs of
Franklin County residents lining the walls. The photos depict residents in their WWll uniforms with
their branch of service listed below. They are all young, proud men and women who risked all in
defense of this nation--some are still living today. There are also maps and photos of Carrabelle in
the 1940s, portraying buildings that are easily recognizable today. The museum encourages Franklin
County residents to bring in photos of their loved ones so that the museum may reproduce and
display them. These photos serve as a presentation of family pride and inspire respect for that great
generation of Americans.

A variety of artifacts, displays, unit photos, and equipment can be found inside the museum. It
also houses a small movie theatre, a gift shop, and a chronological history of the camp. There are
films showing combat training that was conducted at Wakulla Springs (in Wakulla County), and at
Harbeson City and Lake Morality (located on the outskirts of Carrabelle). Visitors can also tour the
vehicle section to see a WWll Jeep, WWll DUKW (an amphibious 2V/2 tOn truck) and a recreated WWll
German Leiferwagen (a Volkswagen utility truck decorated in the Afrika Corp colors).

On Museum Day, September 26, the Museum will be open from 9 A.M. until 4 P.M. There is no entry
fee, but donations are welcome. There will be live music performed by "Not Quite Ready," featuring
period music of the 40s. The citizens of Carrabelle and Franklin County are proud that the Camp
Gordon Johnston WWll Museum has been selected by the Smithsonian to participate in National
Museum Day for the second year in a row.


Print out your Musuem Day admission

flooding. It appears that
all business affected were
interviewed regarding the
flooding with the exception
of Two Gulls owner, Judy
Taylor. During the 17 years
of being located at this
corner of US 98 and County
Road 67, I have seen fires
and floods, with this flooding
being the most extensive.
Business owners have
been advising anyone
who would listen that the
new drain system was not
draining. An attempt to
contact Richard Sands, city
commissioner, at City Hall
had been unsuccessful.
Phone messages left at City
Hall or for the contractor,
C.W Roberts, have not been
returned.
The flood sent over five
inches of water through

closure for 10 days. During
this period, attempts to

In my sixth grade year at
Chapman School in Apalachicola,
I had to do a science fair project.
Daddy had died in November, and
his brother, Louis Roux, stepped
up as my mentor. I can't remember
how we decided, but our goal was to


images was an anachronism. In
the mid-1970s, I worked at WFLA-
Television and Radio in Tampa.
I actually remember when the
six o'clock news would promise,
"Film at 11." WFLA had the only
film processing facility in the area.
Demand faded as video stepped into
dominance. The film lab was closed
and the technicians working there
were fired. It was a sad time. Maybe
that past experience conrbtdo
my current idea that film was on the
way out.
I talked to the shift manager at
the CVS pharmacy in Apalachicola
today. He told me that film and
digital processing run neck-and-
neck in their store. He did allow that
even the film buffs often wanted
their pics on disc. In addition, he
showed me the retail display. Film
products took up at least four times
as much space as digital. Of course,
there were numerous versions
of disposable cameras at prices
of $5 or less for 27 shots. But, the
surprise for me was the array of
35 mm film. They even had high
definition. He said that many people
still bought black and white. We
surmised they might be shooting
nature and outdoor pics while on
vacation.
I found myself strangely
comforted. Perhaps for every
person holding a phone or digital
camera a foot from their face,
there is someone looking through a
viewfinder, checking the film speed
and maybe even using a light meter.
It might just be time to dust off
the old Canon, replace the batteries,
clean the lens and step up to some
photography the way I did it 20
years ago.

with Uncle Louis. To this day, I am
proud of what we accomplished.
After watching so many people
taking high-quality pictures with
their cell phones, I find myself
thinking about film.
I remembered all of the cameras
in my lifetime. Mama and Daddy
had a box version with the round
bulb in a metal attachment that
made that attention-getting pop
when it exploded. I next had a
Kodak Brownie obtained with a few
bucks and some boxtops from Rice
Krispies cereal. Then we moved on
to the Instamatics with their flash
cubes.
Later, I got more serious
and actually learned about film

35 millimeter camera. Next, I
graduated to a Canon AE Program.

Surrounded by the sweet smell

The ACF Basin on
Aug. 28 established an
important milestone
in finally finding an
equitable allocation
of the waters of
the Apalachicola-
Chattahoochee-Flint
(ACF) river basin.
Representatives
of multiple, diverse
interests from throughout
the length and breadth
of the ACF Basin from
Lake Lanier and Atlanta,
down through West Point
Lake, Columbus and
Albany, Georgia, and
from Eufaula, Alabama
to the Apalachicola
River and Bay in Florida
- met outside Eufaula.
Their joint purpose was
to refine and validate
the shared mission and
goals in an organizational
charter to serve as a
basis for joint action
hereafter.
The group will be
known jointly as the "ACF
Stakeholders (ACFS)"
and will pursue a strategy
of consensus-based,
grassroots problem-
solving and advocacy. The
shared aim is to arrive
at workable solutions
for a tri-state water
management policy that
meets the legitimate,
diverse needs of multiple
users of the ACF resource
basin-wide.
As joint commitment
from the adoption of the
charter, the mission of
the ACFS is to change
the operation and
management of the ACF
Basin to achieve:
1. Equitable solutions
among stakeholders
that balance economic,
ecological and social
values.
2. Viable solutions
that ensure that the
entire ACF Basin is a
sustainable resource
for current and future
generations.

With this mission, the
ACFS also advocates in
its approved charter the


Power, Hydro Power,
Navigation, Farm and
Urban Agriculture, Local
Government, Historic and
Cultural, Environmental
and Conservation,
Business and Economic
Development, Recreation,
Water Supply, Water
Quality, Seafood
Industry, Industry and
Manufacturing, and other
interests.
The governing
board will thus have
56 members, 14 from
each of the four sub-
basins. Administrative
issues will require an 80
percent approval, while
substantive issues will
require consensus.
After 18-plus years
of litigation, mediation
and negotiation without
achieving an equitable,
sustainable allocation
of the interstate waters
of the ACF basin, it's
time for an approach
that actively involves the
people of the basin whose
interests and livelihoods
depend on that resource.
The ACFS is dedicated to
such an approach.
After an interim
period of recruitment
and the appointment
of governing board
members from the four
sub-basins, the governing
board will convene for
its first plenary session
during the second
week of December to
begin its issues-based
deliberations.

following goals:
1. To develop a
consensus-based basin-
wide vision and a unified
voice for the ACF Basin.
2. To enhance
communication among
stakeholders in the ACF
Basin.
3. To develop and
disseminate a common
scientifically valid
understanding of the
ACF Basin, including the
interrelated nature of
water management in the
basin, the needs of all of
its stakeholders and the
limitations of the system.
4. To implement
solutions that are based
on the best available
technology and science.
5. To pursue
appropriate change to
institutional structure,
policies and procedures
in implementing the
solutions set forth by this
entity.

The ACFS Steering
Committee now begins
the process of recruiting


and including new
groups of stakeholders
for general membership
in the four sub-basins
of the ACFS Charter,
Upper Chattahoochee
River, Middle and
Lower Chattahoochee
River, Flint River, and
Apalachicola River
and Bay. Following
an essential principle
of balance in all
deliberations, each sub-
basin will then elect 14
stakeholders to represent
their sub-basin on the
governing board.
The outlines of the
ACFS organization
include an executive
committee, which
comprises one member
selected by each of the
four sub-basins. They
serve as chair, vice chair,
secretary and treasurer.
The 14 Stakeholder
Interest Caucuses in
each Sub-basin select one
person to represent their
diverse interest on the
governing board. These
interests include Thermo

Letters to the EDITOR


State shares
blame for seafood
WOrkers' woes
Last week at a Seafood
Workers Association
meeting I apologized to
Johnny Richards and his
family and I want to repeat
that here.
I have been openly
critical of some issues
with the Seafood Workers
Association, but want
to make clear that the
problems were not with
some minor expenses Mr.
Johnny was reimbursed
for. He is a knowledgeable
fisherman who clearly loves
this Bay; and in fact the
same can be said of many
of his family members, such
as shrimper Ralph Richards
and the late Corky Richards,
who was a world-class
craftsman with wood.
I believe the meeting last
week made clear that the
questions and problems
- concerned Linda Raffield,
who was removed as
secretary of the association
by what seemed to be a
unanimous vote.
Mr. Johnny might have
been guilty of being too
trusting; that is not a crime
or even a sin, and that is
not the full story. More
than three years ago (and
before Mr. Johnny was even
involved) the Inspector
General of the Florida
Department of Agriculture
noted concerns with the
Franklin County Seafood
Workers Association, and
last year I again tried to
privately warn DOACS
officials.
But they ignored the
warnings even from their
own Inspector General
- and failed to provide even
the most basic guidance to
";&:JhnnS andthe Seak odh
advanced college degrees,
paid by taxpayers at salaries
more than $50,000, $75,000
or even $100,000 per year,
did not reach out to help
the Seafood Workers draft
a decent set of Bylaws, to
guide Mr.Johnny in his
work.
The blame for that
behavior falls squarely
with Mr. Sherman Wilhelm
director of the Division of
Aquaculture, who has a
long history of indifference
toward the oyster industry.
Now it is his turn to
apologize, and make some
changes in the conduct of
state officials.

Illegal dumping is an
epidemic in Lanark Vil-
lage.
At their Aug. 18 meet-
ing, Lanark Village resi-
dent Mike Rundel asked
county commissioners to
post a no dumping sign
at the southwest corner
of Heffernan and Pine
streets, across from Chill-
as Hall. Rundel said dump-
ing there has become a
perennial problem.
Dot Bless, also of La-
nark Village, agreed with
Rundel and pointed out
that when garbage is de-
posited on the vacant lot,
the county must pay to
transport it to the landfill.
In a telephone inter-
view, Teresa Howard of the
Franklin County Health
Department said the de-
partment had investigated
two complaints regarding
public health nuisances in
Lanark since June. One
involved a truckload of
household garbage that
was moved after the own-
er was contacted. The
department also received
complaints about a woman
who had placed playpen
on the vacant lot at the
corner of Heffernan and
Pine and was depositing
household garbage and
used diapers in it. Howard
said she the woman only
removed the nuisance af-


take to the problem. He
most serious is criminal
prosecution."
Segree said he does
not recall any recent com-
plaints about illegal dump-
ing in Lanark.
"People don't respect
the property any more,"
said villager George Brie-
sacker, in an interview at
Chillas Hall. "They're too
cheap to get service and
too lazy to carry it away."
Lanark Village's recy-
cling bins also have be-
come a site where house-
hold garbage is dumped.
Van Johnson, director
of the county's solid waste
department, said as much
as 80 percent of the mate-
rial left at county recycle
bins is household garbage.
He said this has worsened
the problem of bears for-
aging around populated
areas.
Many Lanark residents
are afraid to use the bins
for fear of encountering
one on the big scavengers.
Johnson said his de-
partment will pick up bulky
items like yard waste and
old appliances, but not
household garbage. He
said items for pick up
should be placed beside
the street in front of your
own residence. You can
call the landfill at 670-8167,
to find out when trucks will
be picking up bulky refuse

Scattered flooding
has occurred across the
county and at least one
new record has been
set in the past week.
The drought is over.
As of Sept.15, Apala-
chicola airport had re-
corded 8.32 inches dur-
ing the first two weeks
of Sept. That's nearly
five inches above the
normal precipitation for
the entire month.
Over the last week,
repeated heavy rains
have led to flooding,
road closures, leaky


roofs and at least one
new sinkhole located at
the Orman House Mu-
seum.
Apalachicola set a
daily rainfall record for
Saturday. The airport
recorded 3.56 inches.
The previous record
was 2.7 inches set in
1959.

blocking of junior wingback
James Winfield and senior
split end Dustin Putnal.
Freshman Elton Olvera,
playing in his first game as
a Seahawk, nailed the extra
point, the first of two on the
night. "That was a good fac-
tor, kind of gives you some
momentum when you score
and you get the point, a psy-
chological advantage," said
Wright.
The Hornets, led by
senior quarterback Nick
Jackson, were stymied the
rest of the first half by Se-
ahawks pressure.
"The defense played
great," said Wright. "They
took away their outside
game, they stopped them,
they made them punt, or
they made them go for it
on fourth down and we
stopped them. It was a mat-
ter of stop after stop.
"The win has brought a
lot of focus on our minds
what we're capable of. They
see on film what we're try-
ing to do," he said. "That's
why the defense had such
a big outing. They saw the
difference of how they had
played and what they're ca-
pable of."
The Seahawks got the


ball with just under two
minutes remaining in the
first half. Lane had bro-
ken a long run for a first
down on a boundary play,
helped with great block-
ing by Prince and seniors
Chase Richards and TyS-
dron Wynn.
Lane then ran inofftack-
le for a 16-yard touchdown
with 56 seconds remaining,
helped with blocks from
freshman Chase Golden
and junior CJ Barnes. "He
scored in the concession
stand end zone, right over
the pylons. It was awe-
some," said Wright.
The Seahawks' special
team covered the kickoff
well, bringing an end to the
first half with a 14-0 lead.


Special teams play
piHS baick Hornets

Neither team scored in
the third quarter, but the
Hornets threatened early
in the fourth quarter when
it took a defiant goal line
stand to prevent a Cotton-
dale score.
Junior defensive back
Dalin Modican had slipped
trying to stop Jackson on


a third-and-four on the 30-
yard-line, and the speed-
ster took off towards the
end zone, looking to score.
But Prince chased him
down, grabbed him by the
shirt and didn't let go un-
til the Cottondale star was
down at the 8-yard line, for
a first-and-goal.
"Basically in a nutshell
it took every muscle or fi-
her for Prince to get him
down," said Wright. "Jack-
son, every time he touches
it, he's a threat. We were al-
ways two plays away from
them tying or winning."
This time, the Seahawks
were less than four plays
away from a score, and
Prince was sidelined for
the rest of the evening with
a cramped left calf muscle
that had bulged up like a
brick under the skin.
After the Hornets' first
futile offensive attempt,
senior linebacker A.J. Ar-
nold, who coaches later
named Defensive Player of
the Game, stopped the next
running play for a 2-yard-
gain,
On third down, Cotton-
dale tried an outside play
and sophomore linebacker
Chris Granger stepped up


to put a halt to that.
Fourth down meant a
pass attempt, but Seahawk
defensive ends Arnold and
junior C.J. Barnes con-
verged from either end
for a huge sack, giving the
Seahawks the ball back on
their own 18-yard-line with
nine minutes left to play.
"Those four straight
stops speak volumes on
how far we have come in
terms of refusing to fold,"
said Wright
Olvera later tried the
Seahawks' first-ever field
goal, but the 32-yard try
sailed wide left. "The pro-
tection was good," said
Wright. "He got a little ner-
vous."
In addition, Modican
snared an interception and
ran it back for a 49-yard
score, but a Seahawks';
clipping penalty nullified
the touchdown.
In the waning minutes,
Lane broke off "a heckuva
run" to change field po-
sitions, and the Hornets
would no longer advance
into Seahawks territory the
remainder of the evening.
Lane rushed 15 times
for 145 yards ands was one
score, and was named Of-


fensive Player of the Game.
Modican had 11 carries for
45 yards, while Turrell ran
eight times for 35 yards,
and Prince five times for
23 yards and a score. In all,
the Seahawks amassed 240
yards on 39 carries.
Modican was unable
to complete any of the six
passes he threw on the
night, but Wright said he
has no plans to alter his of-
fensive strategy.
"We're going to do both,"
he said. "We had two balls
nearly caught. It's just in-
experience with him."
Junior tailback James
Winfield started Friday's
game, but Wright said the
entire backfield will con-
tinue to get playing time
as part of a shared rota-
tion.
Winfield also singled out
Arnold for his effort Fri-
day, not only as the leading
tackler, followed by Wynn
and Barnes, but as Special
Team Player of the Game
due to his outstanding
punting.
"Field position was a big
factor in this one," he said.
"He was able to punt with
some direction and keep the
ball out of the hands of the


dangerous returned Jack-
son. Our kickoff and punt
coverage teams all flew to
the football while maintain-
ing their lane responsibili-
ties, which is what we work
on daily in practice."
Wright is cautioning
against overconfidence as
Franklin County travels to
Destin Middle School Fri-
day to take on the Rocky
Bayou Knights, a team
the Seahawks toppled last
spring.
"We're a bigger football
team than them, but they're
not going to give you any-
thing," he said. "We'll have
to earn it,
"It's one thing to be al-
ways the underdogs; you
can use that as your fuel.
But now you have to go in
with the same mindset,
that you can compete on
every play," Wright said.
"We have to get on top and
stay on top."
Kickoff is set for 8 p.m.
EST Friday at the Des-
tin Middle School football
field. Distance from down-
town Apalachicola is 111
miles, with the route due
west on U.S. 98 all the way
to the school, which is just
off Legendary Drive.

Franklin County vol-
unteers have completed
the United Way of the Big
Bend's community-invest-
ment process for the coun-
ty, and will soon distribute
funds to 11 human-service
agencies that provide ser-
vices here.
Agroupofkn~owledgeable
Franklin volunteers spent
many hours at the Frank-
lin County Courthouse to
ensure the $29,169.04 was
allocated in a fair and unbi-
ased manner so that these
select agencies can provide
services for local people in
need throughout the year.
This year's allocation
represents a 6.5 percent
increase over last year's
total distribution of $27,385.
In addition, the 11 agencies

ceived monies last year.

or agency volunteers. Upon
completion, they determine
which agencies and how
much will be funded for that
particular year.
"It's inspiring to see
these volunteers in Frank-
lin take time out of their
busy schedules to go
through this agency review
process," said Mary Carol
Kaney, United Way's cam-
paign manager for Frank-
lin. "This process is critical
to ensuring that these funds
are allocated properly and
make the most impact in
this county. We're very
proud of the bottom-line re-

It is hereby declared
that the uncontrolled
and unsanitary disposal
of solid wastes in the
incorporated and
unincorporated areas
of Franklin County and
the failure to maintain
clean and sanitary
conditions on property
in the county, threaten
the health, safety and
welfare of the citizens
of this county because
of the potential for
breeding disease,
blight of the landscape
and waterways,
degradation of the
county's natural
resources, and
increased taxpayer
burdens.
It is the intent of this
article to keep Franklin
County a clean, safe


and beautiful place to
live and visit; to provide
direction to the people
in Franklin County for
the proper disposal of
waste; and to provide
county officials and law
enforcement personnel
and county personnel
with the means to
enforce the regulation of
this article.
The word "litter
shall mean any debris,
offal, chemical, house
construction or repair
materials or products
of clean-up; the waste,
spoilage or by-products
of seafood processing,
or any manufactring
Process, garbage,
rubbish, trash, refuse,
can, bottle, containers,
paper, lighted or
unlighted cigarette or


cigar, or flaming or
glowing material.
It shall be unlawful
for any person to
throw, discard, place
or deposit litter, in any
manner or amount, in or
on any public highway,
road, street, alley, or
thoroughfare, including
any portion of the right-
of-way thereof, or any
other public or private
lands, within 1,000 feet
of any county-operated
garbage disposal site,
except in containers or
areas lawfully provided
therefore; when any
litter is thrown or
discarded from a motor

or owner of the motor
vehicle, or both, shall
be deemed in violation
of this section.


in your area.
"We visit the east end
of the county from Alliga-
tor Point to Carrabelle for
a week every month," he
said. "We clean up any-
thing left along the road-
side but we cannot pick
up household garbage be-


risking citations from the
DEP (Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion) ."
Johnson said villag-
ers have three choices for
household garbage pickup:
Gary Mathis Sanitation
(697-3256), WastePro (697-
8800) and Emerald Waste
Management (229-7717).
The county landfill
also offers monthly trash
amnesty day when large
items like yard waste, ap-
pliances and tires can be
dumped free of charge,


but the landfill never ac-
cepts regular household
garbage.
At the commission
meeting, Commissioner
Cheryl Sanders asked if
Assistant Solid Waste Di-
rector Fonda Davis could
begin policing the site.
Pi(ount aiPla nercoAlan
could also instruct the
sheriff's office to watch
the site and begin writing
citations for illegal dump-
ing.
Sanders told Rundel
and Bless to call the sher-
iff to report littering, and
to inform the health de-
partment about any public
health nuisance
In a telephone inter-
view, Johnson said Davis
has begun patrolling the
village to identify litterers
and will report offenders
to the appropriate agency.


to Raffield and to Johnny
Richards, president of the
association. The checks
were cosigned by Raffield
and Richards.
"These questionable
checks and expenses were
written without the formal
knowledge or approval of
the majority of the FCSWA
board of directors or mem-
hers at large," said Begos,
who has long been active
in issues surrounding the
seafood industry. He cur-
rently serves as coordina-
tor of the county's Seafood
Task Force, which includes
representatives from the
FCSWA.
According to some mem-
bers of the association, in-
cluding former president
Ronnie Page, treasurer
Taunya James and vice
president Bruce Rotella,
$10,000 or more may be
missing from the coffers.
At the meeting, James
said, "When Linda took


the checkbook from me
three years ago there was
$35,000 in the bank, when I
got it back last week, there
was $25."
James said Raffield took
the checkbook from her
three months after James
was appointed treasurer in
July 2007.
"When my children's'
father died, I was doing the
funeral arrangements,"
James said. "Johnny and
Linda came to me and said
'Let us take care of the
checkbook for you.' He took
it with him.
"I tried several times
over the next three years
to get the checkbook back.
I got it back about three
months ago. Then in mid
August, Johnny (Richards)
came when I wasn't home
and asked my husband for
it. He said he needed to
write a check for repairs
because he had truck prob-
lems. He uses the truck


to go to Tallahassee for
the seafood workers. "He
(Richards) took the whole
checkbook and gave it to
her (Raffield). Later, when
I asked for it, he told me
that Linda wanted to write
the checks for the oyster
relay so she could make
$200. At the oyster relay on
Aug. 28, Johnny announced
that Linda had quit," James
said.
James said she finally re-
trieved the checkbook from
Richards on Friday morn-
ing after the Sept. 10 meet-
ing. She said, according to
the check register, Raffield
had written $2,300 worth of
checks while she had pos-
session of the checkbook
between mid-August and
Sept. 11, including $300 for
Richards' truck repair.
There were also three
$200 checks to Raffield
which, according to notes
in the register, were for "re-
lay preparations," "3 days


on the phone computer for
additional relay ads and
flyers," and "redoing pa-
per work for relays."
Richards also received
three $200 checks during
the period, according to
the check memos for "re-
lay repairation," "relay,"
and "oyster relay addition-
al relay request and signa-
tures."
At the Thursday meet-
ing, Page joined James,
Richards and Rotella at a
table before the assembly
"You didn't have the
authority to appoint your
secretary to write checks,"
Page told Richards gently.
"That's for your vice presi-
dents and this lady here,"
pointing to James.
Richards was visibly
shaken. He attempted to
resign as president of FC-
SWA.
"We are having an au-
dit run of the association.
I have had a good name
for 67 years in this com-
munity." he said. "I think
the work that's been done
for the association speaks
for itself. After the audit,
I'm giving the books up. I
think tonight would be a
good time to elect a new
president."
He said Apalachicola
Riverkeeper attorney Andy
Smith had arranged for the
audit with grant money.


I dos' tab elevenhe'd


A number of people in
the audience protested
Richards' resignation and
urged him to continue as
president of the FCSWA.
"He took over some-
thing that's been bad for
years," said Eastpoint
oysterman Matt Polous.
"Money don't just disap-
pear. There's books and
records. All you've got to
do is sit down and put your
heads together."
Richards responded he
was resigning for health
reasons.
"I have COPD in my
lungs," he said, referring
to chronic obstructive pul-
monary disease.
"I been knowing John-
ny Richards all my life and
I don't believe he'd steal
a penny," said Rotella.
"Here lately, we haven't
had meetings every month
and allegations are being
made."
James said, "I think
Johnny's a good man. I
don't think he did anything
wrong. I think he was jerk-
ed around."
One member of the au-
dience protested that Raf-
field was not at the meet-
ing to defend herself. But
Saundra Powell said, "I
make a motion she be re-
moved tonight."
The motion was second-
ed and passed by show of
hands with 80 percent of
the 40 people present in fa-
vor of removing Raffield.
Richards looked at cop-
ies of the disputed checks
and said he was confused.
"A lot of my signatures
have been electronically


transferred. I didn't sign
that," he said, pointing to
the paperwork.
In a telephone inter-
view on Friday he con-
firmed that he could not
remember signing all of
the checks. "I write so
many checks that I can't
remember them all. On
relay days, there are hun-
dreds," he said.

Eastpoint
businessman donated
thousands to F(SWA

Rotella said he first be-
came concerned about the
association's funds when
Eastpoint businessman
Bob Allen came to him
with cancelled checks to-
taling about $43,000 that
Allen indicated were dona-
tions to the FCSWA.
Rotella said that when
he reviewed the books, he
and James could only find
records of about $30,000
ever being deposited.
Rotella said when Raf-
field was asked to ac-
count for the money, she
wrote a handwritten let-
ter in which she said Allen
had instructed her to use
some of these donations
to purchase a telescope, a
DeVinchi speaker system,
a Wii system and games,
computer software, and


tpee ass dir io tehe
FCSWA and Allen's busi-
ness, the White Eagle Res-
taurant. Raffield said she
and her husband, Vince,
had worked for Allen for
one year in exchange for
the promise of living at his
property on 17 Washington
Street.
James said Raffield also
purchased desktop and
laptop computers and a
digital camera worth $700
with FCSWA funds.
There are indications
in the paperwork that Raf-
field provided to Rotella
and James that Allen was
repaid $20,000 on Sept. 19,
2008 in the form of a ca-
shier's check. This was ap-
parently for a loan he had
made to FCSWA, but it is
not clear what connection
this has to the $43,000 total
Rotella cited.
Apalachicola River-
keeper attorney Andy
Smith said he has received
a box of receipts from Raf-
field but has yet to deter-
mine how they coincide
with some or all of these
purchases.

H]*he TIhree Little

Oysters and the Big
Hurricane"

James was appointed
treasurer after Greene
was forced from office af-
ter criticizing Raffield for
nonpayment of a $2,400 bill
that Raffield incurred in
the FCSWA's name without
permission from the board.
Greene said Raffield
owed the money to Coast-
2Coast Printing and Pro-


motions, Inc. (C2C) in Port
St. Joe. Raffield ordered
300 copies of "The Three
Little Oysters and the Big
Hurricane," a book au-
thored by Vince Raffield to
he sold at the 2007 Oyster
Spat Festival.
Linda Raffield told
C2C she was ordering the
books for the association
when, in fact the board had
not been consulted about
the purchase. The invoice
reads "FCSWA Attention
Linda."
Greene said she brought
the purchase up at a board
meeting after receiving a
call from C2C requesting
payment. She said the next
day someone called her at
home and told her she was
no longer treasurer of FC-
SWA. She said she cannot
recall who called her but
that it was not Raffield.
Some of the books are
currently on sale at the Tin
Shed in Apalachicola. The
cover of the books specifi-
cally states that part of the
money from the sale will
benefit FCSWA.
Eastpoint resident He-
lene Square said she pur-
chased three copies of the
book from Linda Raffield
for $15 in cash each, and
was told at the time pro-
ceeds would go to the sea-
food workers.
James said no money
from the sale of the books

wason evrore~turned to the

view, Greene said, "The
books were never a sea-
food workers project. This
was something Vince and
Linda came up with to try
and earn money."

An informal third

party comprehensive
GUdit

In an interview on Fri-
day, Smith said "an informal
third party comprehensive
audit" would be performed
by Roberson and Friedman
of Port St. Joe. He said it
would be paid for with grant
money from the Thomas
H. Moren 11uzst and the
Southern Partners Flmd
earmarked for the admin-
istrative and organizational
needs of the FCSWA.
Rotella said the FCSWA
will meet again after the
audit to discuss how to pro-
ceed. He said they will meet
in mid-January to elect a
new board and vote on re-
vised bylaws.
Rotella also said the as-
sociation plans to seek per-
mission from the county
commission to build an of-
fice where equipment and
records can be stored at
Seafood Worker's Park, just
past Two Mile east of Apala-
chicola.
"The Seafood Worker's
Association belongs to the
people," Rotella told the as-
sembly on Thursday. "The
task force and the River-
keeper have no authority
over you, but I think it's time
you stand on your own two
feet and start making these
monthly meetings."

By Tim (roft
Florida Freedom Newspapers

Greg Cole will never
complain about the Flori-
da heat again,
After spending three
months in Iraq with his
dog Maximus as part of a
search and rescue team,
Cole, a captain at the Gulf
County Sheriff's Office,
spent plenty of days where
the afternoon tempera-
tures would hit 135-138
degrees.
theH lost 15 pounds i
struggled to maintain that
weight throughout his
stint in country.
Maximus was in such


Debbie, a high school
teacher in Wewahitchka,
was mortified by the skin
and bones she saw when
they disembarked in At-
lanta.
"I'll never be hot in
Florida again," Cole said
with a laugh. "One of the
first days I was home I was
fishing and it started to
rain and I just sat there in
a lawn chair in my shorts
and just enjoyed each
drop.
"It was a gratifying
experience. It was about
what I expected. It wasn't
fun."
Cole, whose cadaver
dogs are almost legendary
in this part of Florida, was
hired by a private contrac-
tor in need of such canines
for search missions. Cole
signed up for three months
with the proviso that he
could extend for another
three months and another
tretemoanths until he had
But the first three
months were sufficient.
On their last mission
together, one in the desert,
Cole could tell that Maxi-
mus was done and so too
was he. He chose to return
home and after a period of
rest Cole figures he and
Maximus slept most of the
first week home went
back to work at the sher-
iff's office.
"He was a trooper,"
Cole said of Maximus.
"But the last few weeks
he didn't have it. When
he gets stressed and then
how hot it was, he won't
drink. They know how to
keep care of themselves.
I could just see he was
done.
"I knew how long we
stayed would depend on
how he held up. It's a
tough country for dogs.
When he was ready, I was
about ready, too."
Cole went on a number
of missions the exact
number and locations are
classified and each one
was draining.
They would travel for
two to three days to a lo-
cation, spend up to a week
in that location, and then
travel back to the home
compound, which was part
of Camp Victory, which
sprawls around Saddam
Hussein's grandest palace
in Baghdad.
Cole said the longest
stretch the two went with-
out working was about a
week.
Cole and his dog were
always protected by a
convoy of U.S. Army infan-
try, Marines or the Army
Calvary, but the toll each
trip took sapped both dog


piece of home. It brought
tears to my eyes. I would
have done that for free.
That would fill me up. It
got kind of emotional at
times."
The missions the two
would go on would typical-
ly involve a single target
identified by the military
through information gath-
ered in the field. Cole said
the military personnel
were always helpful and
worked with efficiency.
"I was proud of them,"
Col seidoncern is that
as part of a recovery or
search team, Cole and
Maximus could be target-
ed by the enemy as they
arivd ot a en scene
Additionally, dogs are
not looked on highly in
that part of the world, they
are indeed targets of the
enemy, and many Iraqis,
Cole said, shied away from
any contact.
Rules have their excep-
tions, though, and Cole and
Maximus encountered one
at Taza, where a mosque
was bombed and casu-
alties were high. In this
case, Cole and Max were
searching for Iraqis.
And in general the Iraq-
is at the scene invited the
assistance, Cole assuring
them he and Max were
there to help and were
"honored" to help. While
on a break from their work,
one Iraqi man patted Max
on the head, a young boy
traded high-fives with the
dog.
"They would thank her,
which I thought was pretty
cool," Cole said.

ognitions. Cole and Max
received a plaque of Spe-
cial Recognition from the
9th Calvary, received the
units' coin from a general
and an honor Cole could
not get over.
"The biggest honor
was the lieutenant colonel
ripped off his battle patch
and gave it to me," Cole
said. "He said, 'You de-
serve that.' You don't get
much better than that."
Cole said he could not
have done the tour without
modern technology which
allowed him to keep in fre-
quent touch with his wife
through satellite phone
and Skype.
"I could not have done
it without her support,"
Cole said.
After three months, dog
and master were cooked
and headed home. The
flight back to Germany
brought him to a Maca-
roni Grill, which allowed
him to feast on a little bit
of home-like cooking and
particularly sweet tea.
"I ate so much I was
sick," Cole said.
Two flights later he was
in Atlanta and in the arms
of Debbie.
Cole, looking in hind-
sight, said he would make
the same decision to go
over to Iraq to try to bring
closure to some poor sol-
dier's family again. He and
Max did what they could
and went home when they
reached their limit.
"I went so I could serve
my country again one last
time," Cole said. "My main
focus was taking care of
the dog and doing my job.
Would I make the same de-
cision again? Absolutely."

The Orman House
State Park came alive
Thursday evening when
the Friends of St. George
Island State Park, Inc.
hosted a business after-
hours for the members
of the Apalachicola Bay
Chamber of Commerce.
Guests were able to
wander the house and
grounds, and mingle and
chat at their leisure amid
the lovely collection of
antiques and artifacts of
Apalachicola's colorful
past.
There was an abun-
dance of food prepared
by the Friends featuring
meatballs, wings and lo-
cal shrimp. Perhaps the
hit of the evening was


conch chowder cooked
up by Josh Hodson, as-
sistant manager of Dr.
Julian Bruce State Park
on St. George Island.
Also on the bill of fare
were mint juleps served
up on the front porch
overlooking Veterans Me-
morial Plaza.
Both the Orman

and owner of significant
strength,
"Most of the time it was
pretty good," Cole said.
"They'd set you up in a
room and we'd go out with
a convoy and then come
back. We went all over that
place.
"But it was tough. The
heat, the environment,
you have to travel no tell-
ing where and that could
be very noisy, and you are
wearing all that body ar-
mor. It was tough, it chal-
lenged me, but I think I
stood up to it very good."
The noise of the chop-
pers and other vehicles
that transported the two
added to the stress for
Maximus. On their first
trip, Cole said, he put
some foam ear plugs in
Max's ears which Maxi-
mus promptly removed
with a shake of his head.
However, minutes later,
Maximus received a head-
set to crowd out the noise
and the headset became
something of a traveling
accessory.
"You could see it in his
face, hey this is alright, I
can handle this." Cole said.
"He did not like getting on
and off aircraft."
Cole described a des-
ert climate that was dry
and drab. The photos he
brought back have a sepia


hue broken by the occa-
sional trees or shrubbery.
And the sand was another
story, altogether.
The sand, Cole said,
was nothing like what can
be found on St. Joseph
Peninsula. This was not
sugary white sand, but
yellow chalk-like sand that
clung to everything. Cole's
computer, despite daily
cleaning, still sported a
thin dusting of sand in the
seams last week.
"Sand gets in every-
thing, it is hard to stay
clean," Cole said. "That
sand got in (Max's) nose,
ears, his eyes. And all
these dogs are wearing fur
coats."
Cole said Iraq was much
quieter, much calmer than
two or three years ago, ac-
cording to soldiers he talk-
ed to, and there were a lot
because Maximus attracts
a crowd.
"One of the most grati-
fying things of all was ev-
erywhere we went, from
the people who flew us to
the soldiers, Marines who
protected us, the soldiers
would crowd around Max
and they would hug him
and love him and Max was
loving them back," Cole
said.
"They would tell me
what it meant to them,
how much it gave them a

With 193 boats and close
to 1000 anglers, the Mexico
Beach Artificial Reef Association
set a record for entries at its 13th
annual Kingfish Tournament Aug.
29. "People came from as far
away as Nashville to fish, and
we had a wonderful tournament,
a perfect weekend," said Ron
Childs, tournament director.
The first place king mackerel
was caught by Jon Douglas,
from Team Chicken Snack.
Weighing 37.85 pounds, it
edged out the runner-up by less
than six ounces. Team Chicken
Snack, pictured with Miss

The Lady Seahawks
captured their first win in
the new district on Mon-
day, against the Wewahi-
tchka Gators.
The girls played four
games total, eventually
sealing the deal with ag-
gressive play and impres-
sive teamwork. During the
first two games the girls
easily handled the Gators,
but made mistakes serv-
ing to give the opponent
unearned points.
The Seahawks won the
first two games 26 -24 and
25-15, then lost 25-18 before
coming back to win 25-22.
I think the Gators fi-
nally awoke during the
third game and gave our
Seahawks some good vol-
leyball. The Seahawks dis-
played some great athleti-
cism out there and played
so well together as a team.
These girls have grown so
much from last year.
Senior Joy Carrino led
the Seahawks in serving
points, followed by class-
mate senior Monet Moron
and freshman Chena Seg-
ree. Sophomore Oneika
Lockley played an awe-
some game upfront, re-
cording six kills, five digs
and even served five aces
during the night. Monet,
Oneika and Chena played
tremendous defensively
for the Seahawks, which
allowed Joy to set her
teammates up all night


long with opportunities to
attack.
Other members of the
squad meclude senior Cece-
lia James, juniors Desire-
ae Cummings and Brooke
Harper, sophomores Mor-
gan Newell, Megan Newell,
Ciara Moore and Maegan
Andrews, and freshmen
Roxanna Barahoma, Kerri

ten.
The Seahawks take on
Taylor County Monday and
district rival Port St. Joe
Tuesday. Come out and
support the girls for the
first home game Sept. 22.
The Lady Seahawk J.V
squad also won, beating
the Gators in two straight
games, 25-16 and 25-15.

One of the com-
pelling reasons
Weems Memorial
Hospital allied itself
with Tallahassee
Memorial Health-
Care late last year
was to entice more D.
medical specialists
fromTMH o roate STO(
from MH torota (
their services to
Franklin County.
Now, within a year of
signing the management
agreement with TMH,
Weems has announced
one of the most respected
senior gastroenterologists
in Tallahassee will rotate
to Weems each month to
perform colonoscopies
and endoscopies, begin-
ning Sept. 21.
Dr. James W. Stockwell,
founder of the Digestive
Disease Clinic in Talla-
hassee in 1974, will be the
first specialist to provide
services to primary care
physicians and their pa-
tients in the county, as
a result of the new part-


nership between
TMH and Weems,
'said Weems CEO
Chuck Colvert.
According to
Stockwell, a TMH
colleague recently
MS told him about the
new clinical rela-
WEL tionship between
TMH and Weems,
and Weems' desire to at-
tract more specialists to
come on a regular basis to
the county.
"I had partially retired
in Dec. '07, leaving the Di-
gestive Disease Clinic and
the Tallahassee Endos-
copy Center as president
and managing partner
with nine physicians and
three nurse practitio-
ners," said Stockwell. "It
was just a good time to
do something else. I was
interested in this opportu-
nity at Weems. Whatever
we can do to help."
Stockwell is passion-
ate about the issue of
access to quality health

cians to practice in rural
areas. "If we're going to
encourage doctors going
there, they need our sup-
port. I believe everyone
deserves access to quality
health care," he said.
Stockwell said the pos-
sibilities here seem prom-
ising. "I think you have
a good medical staff at
Weems. I'm impressed,"
he said. "Weems is well
organized, offering a good
product. It's only going to
gethbetter."
Stockwell said he
would work closely with
the county' primary care
physicians, who will let pa-
tients know about TMH's
services in cancer screen-
ing and upper endosco-
pies.
"After patients are re-
ferred to me and prior to
their procedure, they will
see a nurse who will ex-


plain to them exactly what
will happen and how to
prepare," he said. "Right
before their procedure, I
will visit with the patient
and their family, and then
again after the procedure
in the recovery room. We
will also report their re-
sults back to their primary
care physician," he said,
noting Weems Endoscopic
Services will start slowly
at first to assure safety
and high quality.
Stockwell may be the
beginning of physician
specialists rotating to
Franklin County, but prob-
ably far from the last. "I'm
interested in trying to en-
courage other specialists
to come down here," he
said. "They will be work-
ing with an excellent team
of physicians and other
medical professionals at
Weems."

A fundraiser held on Labor Day
weekend for the new Eastpoint branch
of the Franklin County Library a col-
lected more than $5,000.
On Saturday, Sept. 5, volunteers
from across the county came together
to raise money to complete the new
branch now under construction in
Eastpoint.
Ellen Ashdown, spokeswoman for
the Friends of the Franklin County Li-
brary, said Charlotte and Joe Bacher
and Terry Kemp, all of St. George Is-
land, hatched the idea for a rock-and-
roll book sale. Penny Angel, also of the
island, contributed time and ideas.
Dozens of others chipped in to make
the sale a success.
What started as a book sale blos-
somed into a barbecue with live music,
door prizes and free treats and enter-
tainment for the kids. Drawings for
prizes were held throughout the event.
Hundreds of books, many brand new,
sold for $2 or less.
During the benefit, adjacent park-
ing lots were filled and cars lined up
on both sides of Pine Street for two
blocks to the east and west of the par-
ty.Ashdown said more than 250 people
attended the event.
Charlotte Bacher said she was not
on the library board, but became the
designated point person for the event.
"This is the best kind of fundraiser,"
she said. "Everything from the food to
the music to the tables and chairs was
donated. It's all profit."
The event was held at Sometimes
It's Hotter Seasoning Company.

rused the proffered paperb cks. h s

serts.
The Tate's Hell Band from Apala-
chicola played for free, and Wayne
Thomas, of Eastpoint, handled the
sound board.
Wilson's Portable Toilet Systems of
Apalachicola supplied porta-potties.
Gulf State Community Bank provided
tents. The St. George Island Volunteer
Fire Department, Bayside Florist and
Sea Oats Gallery supplied tables and
chairs.
Ashdown said many businesses do-
nated door prizes.
"This is one of the most success-
ful fundraisers we've had," she said.
"The money is a small step toward
finishing the building, but the turn-
out and enthusiasm show how much
the community wants this new li-
brary."

On Sunday, Aug. 30, the
Philaco Women's Club held
their annual new members
tea at the home of Elaine Ko-

It was founded as a read-

On Saturday, Preshia
Crum of Eastpoint cel-
ebrated her 97th birthday,
surrounded by over 100
friends and family mem-
bers.
Preshia O. Smith Crum
was born Oct. 17, 1912,
somewhere off County
Road 65 between Sumatra
and Brickyard. She gradu-
ated from Apalachicola
High School in 1931 and
has lived in Eastpoint her
entire adult life.
Everyone enjoyed hot
dogs, hamburgers and na-
chos to go with the birth-
day cake, as Grandma
Preshia's nearest and
dearest serenaded herwith


old time gospel songs like
"I Want to Walk Through
that Meadow with You"
and "Amazing Grace."
Her younger sisters,
Margaret Wilson, of Apala-
chicola, and Billie Avery,
of Pascagoula, Miss., were
there to share her special
day, along with her chil-
dren, Marion Cain and
James Crum, both of East-
point, and Randall Crum,
of Panama City, and one
"inherited daughter," Pat-
sy McWhinnie.
Her eldest son, Jerry
Crum died in France in
1960 while serving in the
Air Force.
She has 10 grandchil-


dren, 23 great-grandchil-
dren and seven great-great
grandchildren.
There were more
grandbabies and great-
grandbabies on hand than
anybody could count in the
crowded fellowship hall of
the Eastpoint Methodist
Church. Deeply religious,
Grandma Preshia is the
only surviving founder of
the church.
"I've seen so many
people here today that
I haven't seen in ages. I
don't know how I could be
any happier," said Grand-
ma Preshia, who lives on
her own.

meet but, unfortunately, has tested positive for heartworms. Stormy
is in need of some sponsors so she can begin her treatment. Anything
you can give would be greatly appreciated.

abandoned dog or cat!

In last week's paper, there was an article about
some of Carrabelle's history. However, long before the
two-story brick building, at the corner of U.S. 98 and


Tallahassee Street was The General store. It was
the home of Carrabelle Realty, and the owners,
Charles and Mary Miller, lived in the penthouse
upstairs. Charles and Mary later sold the
business to Ruby Litton.
Our very own Cheryl to the rescue! The stop
sign and street marker were knocked down
sometime ago, and will be replaced sometime

convene at noon. You are invited to join them.
Enjoy!
Be kind to one another and check in on the sick and

Until next time, God Bless America, our troops, the
poor, homeless, and hungry.


According to the Nation-
al Commission on Sleep Dis-
orders Research, 40 million
people suffer from short-
term sleep disorders and
40 million more from chron-
ic sleep disorders. In fact it
is the third most common
problem that patients talk
to their physicians about.
Weems Memorial Hospi-
tal believes patients should
be talking to their physi-
cian if they suffer from a
lack of sleep. The hospital
maintains a sleep lab to
help doctors diagnose the
problem.
'Itirs out, sleep is pretty
important. We all know how
we feel after a bad night's
sleep. Symptoms can in-
clude poor concentration
or judgment, fatigue, irrita-
bility and depression. More
than just feeling bad or
performing poorly, recent
studies point to a real con-
nection between getting
enough sleep and our men-
tal and physical health.
Because of its impor-
tance to our well-being,
Weems opened a sleep lab
in 2006. A sleep lab helps
physicians and their pa-
tients diagnose and treat
sleep disorders. There are
at least 82 recognized types
of sleep disorders. These
include sleep apnea (to
stop breathing for a brief
period of time), narcolepsy
(a needforfrequent periods
of deep sleep), restless legs
syndrome, insomnia, teeth
grinding, snoring, seizures,


and sleep walking.
This is how it works: Af-
ter a physician prescribes
a sleep study, the patient
reports to Weems to spend
a night in the lab. The sleep
lab measures brain waves
and vital signs throughout
one whole night between 7
p.m. and 6 a.m.
In this simple, nonin-
vasive procedure, patients
are comfortably hooked
up to electrode leads from
an electroencephalograph
machine and their elec-
tronic sleep patterns are
monitored remotely as a
respiratory technician sits
outside the door,
At the conclusion of


the study, the test results
are read and interpreted
by a physician specialist.
The expertly interpreted
results are sent to the
patient's physician within
42 hours and treatments
can then be prescribed. Of-
ten, a patient experiences
immediate relief when
treatments are initiated.
If a condition such as
obstructive sleep apnea
is diagnosed, for example,
an upper airway is found
to be closing briefly all
during the night, causing
the patient to stop breath-
ing each time. The patient
awakens in the morning
with an inadequate amount


of rest and as a result feels
tired all the time. There are
several treatments for this,
but one of them is to send
an airstream of continuous,
constant pressure to the
patient from an air com-
pressor to keep the airway
open.
The importance of sleep
is getting a wake-up call.
If you need to heed that
call, talk to your physician
about doing a sleep study
at Weems.
Or call the respiratory
department at Weems 653-
8853 for more information.
Most insurance policies
and Medicare cover sleep
studies.

As you gardeners
well know, a gardener'
s work is never done!
The following are some
of the recommended
chores to do over the
next two months. These
recommendations are
provided by Theresa
Friday, UF IFAS
Horticulture Agent
in Santa Rosa
County

FOWe S
*Cut back
leggy herbaceous [
flowering plants WI
and remove old ARO
flower stalks. Re- Bil
fertilize in order
to obtain one more color
burst before cool weather.
*Prepare beds for
the planting of cool
season annuals. Some
plants to establish for
fall, winter, and early
spring include: pansy,
petunia, snapdragon,
larkspur, bachelor button,


calendula, alyssum,
dianthus and candytuft.
*Divide and replant
perennials and bulbs that
have grown too large or
need rejuvenation, such
as ajuga, amaryllis, canna,
daylily, liriope and mondo
grass.
*To get a holiday
cactus or
poinsettia
to bloom for
Christmas be
sure it is NOT
getting light at
night. Starting
approximately
RLD October 1st, put
D YOU the plants in a
ahan dark area that
receives no light
from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Keep
putting it in the dark at
night for one month for
the cactus, six to eight
weeks for the poinsettia.
Place the plant in its
normal growing area
during the day so that it
gets sufficient light.


generously to obtain a
depth of 2 to 3 inches on
the soil surface after they
have settled.

VegetableS
*Prepare the fall
vegetable garden by
incorporating orgame
amendments into the
soil. Allow about 3 weeks
between the incorporation
of amendments and
planting. Cool-season
vegetables/herbs that
can be planted include:
beets, broccoli, Brussels
sprouts, cabbage, carrots,
cauliflower, Chinese
cabbage, collards,
kohlrabi, mustard, onions,
parsley, radishes and
turnips-
*Begin planting
strawberries in mid to
late October. Set out
strawberry plants in the
garden, in planters or in
"strawberry jars". For
more information view
the UF/IFAS publication
"Strawberries in the
Florida Garden" (HS509).

L0WHS
*September will be
the last month to fertilize
lawns using a nitrogen-
containing fertilizer.
Unless a soil test indicates
that the lawn needs
phosphorus, use a low or


no-phosphorus fertilizer
such as a 15-0-15.
*For green grass
this winter, overseed
the permanent lawn
with annual ryegrass
during October and early
November. Though a
well kept winter lawn
can be attractive, it
requires a commitment.
Regular mowing,
irrigation and a couple
of light, supplemental
applications of fertilizer
will be required during the
winter in order to keep the
lawn looking its best. For
more information view
the UF/IFAS publication
"Overseeding Florida
Lawns for Winter Color"
(ENH14).
*If winter weeds are a
recurring lawn problem,
apply a pre-emergence
herbicide in early October.
Follow label directions
carefully. For more
information view the UF/
IFAS publication "Weed
Management in Home
Lawns" (ENH884).Happy
gardening!

At their Tuesday evening meeting,
Apalachicola County Commissioners vot-
ed unanimously to sign the annual agree-
ment with State Housing Initiative Part-
nership (SHIP).
County Planner Alan Pierce told the
commission that SHIP rolled over $60,000
in disaster relief money that is currently
available if needed. There is $19,000 in
down payment assistance money avail-
able from last year.


SHIP Coordinator Lori Switzer is at-
tempting to convert the down payment
funds to rehab money to clean and refur-
bish a house deeded to the county by the
late Roscoe Daly. Daly gifted the county
with his home in gratitude to SHIP for
building it.
There is no new money, beyond the cur-
rent $350,000 in first-time buyer down pay-
ment assistance, forthcoming from SHIP
for the upcoming 2009-10 fiscal year.

Sheriff's REPORT


Cops

intercept

more than

4 OURCeS

Of hashish
On Sept. 9, members of
the Franklin County Sher-
iff's office Narcotics Unit,
with the assistance of the
Tallahassee Police De-
partment Narcotics Unit,
intercepted a package
containing 123.7 grams, or
a little more than 4 ounc-
es, of hashish destined
for delivery in the area of
Franklin County.
Investigators with
the narcotics unit of the
sheriff's office said the
package had been sent
from California, and a K-9
alerted authorities after a
sniff of mailed materials
in Tallahassee. Officers
from teaseheeifs fice
apartment then made the
controlled delivery to an
Eastpoint address, which
led to a boat located at the
Ten Foot Hole in Apala-
chicola.
The subject arrested
was identified as Michael
Coolidge Shannon, 61,
who was living on the boat
at the time. Shannon was
charged with possession
of a controlled substance
(more than 20 grams) and
transported to the Frank-
lin County Detention Fa-
cility.
Street value of the
drugs was estimated at
$2,000. The case is still un-
der investigation.

to Marine Street in 1997
but, when that location
grew cramped, they began
construction on their new
building in Dec. 2008.
Braxton passed the busi-
ness down to his two sons,
Vance and Johnny and now
Vance said his sons, Steven
and David, are at the wheel,
with Vance, his wife and
parents continuing to con-
tribute ideas and product to
the venture.
The new Millender's will
continue to process all sorts
of locally caught seafood
on site. They will remain a
wholesale outlet marketing
to out-of-state vendors, but
Steven said he and David
have decided to focus on re-
tail customers as well.
The new store will carry
fresh local oysters, shrimp,
lobsters and fish of all kinds


including sushi grade tuna.
In addition, Millender's
now offers prepared sea-
food treats ready to pop in
the fryer or the oven.
Steven said his grand-
parents will prepare hand-
made egg rolls stuffed with
Florida caught shrimp.
Other temptations to
the palate include shrimp
stuffed with crab or jalap-
enos and wrapped in bacon;
and shrimp dip and deviled
crab prepared from old
family recipes.
This week, a steamer
will be installed at the shop
and steamed shrimp and
crab, including king crab
will become available.
The new Millender's will
be open Monday through
Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to
7 p.m. For more info, call
697-3301.


The Millender family is
clminn gnrtin oa

marketing in their new lo-
cation.
The grand opening of
Millender Seafood's new
home at 607 U.S. 98 just
east of Sands Memorial
Park was a low-key affair
but business began to trick-
le in as soon as the doors
opened.
Millender's has offered
the best local seafood for
three generations. The
company, founded by Brax-
ton Millender in 1942, was
originally located at 501 St.
James Ave., the current
location of C-Quarters Ma-
rina. The company moved
