YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER FOR MORE THAN 120 YEARS


VOL. 121 ISSUE 22


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Adding to the margin of vic-
tory she secured two weeks ago,
Brenda Ash cruised to victory
over incumbent Valentina Webb
in a 'Iesday runoff for Apala-
chicola Commission Seat 4.
With 471 votes, Ash, 40, a
mortgage lending officer, gath-
ered 65.6 percent of the vote
Tuesday, 20 percentage points
and 105 votes better than she
had done in the first round of bal-
loting Sept. 8.
Webb, 45, a corrections of-
ficer, received 247 votes, or
34.4 percent, about how well she
had done two weeks ago when
she tallied 264 votes, or 32 per-
cent, of the vote in the three-way
race.
Indications were that most
of the 187 votes secured two
weeks by former Apalachicola
police chief Anderson Williams,


51, went Ash's way in Tuesday's
runoff between the two women.
"I am so grateful to God for
this opportunity to serve as
Apalachicola's next Seat 4 City
Commissioner," said Ash, as she
celebrated with friends at a post-
election party at AJ's Neigh-
borhood Bar and Grill Tuesday
night. "The people apparently
were looking for a change. We're
ready for a change and I hope I
can do that.
"Special thanks go to the
spectacular group who worked
hard and supported me through-
out the entire process. They
encouraged and motivated me
from beginning to end," she said.
"Thank you citizens of Apala-
chicola for placing your trust
in me. I vow to be a hands-on
commissioner working as close
as possible with the mayor and
commissioners.
"However, I'm only one voice,
one vote. It's going to take the en-


tire community to get involved,"
she said. "No matter your race,
no matter your economic status,
we all have to work together to
make this city what it should be.
"Therefore, I encourage all of
my constituents to get involved
and be active in our community
and government to make this
city the best it can be," Ash said.
"I congratulate Commissioner
Webb on her accomplishments
over the past four years. Again,
thank you citizens of Apalachic-
ola.
At the polls on Election Day,
Ash defeated Webb 2-to-1, with
304 votes to 151. Among ab-
sentee voters, Ash won 154 to
95 votes, and among provisional
ballots, cast by voters who did
not bring sufficient documenta-
tion with them to the polls, Ash
won 13 to 1.
Ash is expected to be sworn
in at next month's Oct. 6 city
commission meeting.

CaOffebell woman


accused of animall neglect

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

The county's animal control department is going to court
to prohibit Alice Dawn Kerkvliet from owning animals, in
this county or anywhere else in Florida.
Van Johnson, director of animal control, appeared be-
fore the county commission Sept. 15 to request that Kerky-
liet, of Carrabelle, be prohibited from owning animals.
The commission approved the request unanimously.
County Attorney Michael Shuler and Johnson must now
appear before County Judge Van Russell to request he is-
sue the order and obtain ownership of the dogs.
In the interim, the dogs will be kept by animal control
and are available to be fostered. They are in need of a good
home and a safe haven. If you can help call 670-8167.
Johnson's request came after Kerkvliet was cited twice
earlier this year for animal neglect.
On Feb. 14, Carrabelle Police Sergeant Craig Kincaid re-
sponded to a reported water theft at 1101 Owens Drive, the
former residence of Kerkvliet and her husband, Jason. Kin-
caid found seven dogs tied to fixed posts and trees outside
of a deserted house, many without food and water.
Kincaid learned Kerkvliet had moved elsewhere in the
county, to 111 Sharroll Court, and had left the dogs behind.
She periodically returned to feed and water them, using
a neighbor's hose as the utilities at her former home had
been shut off.
Kerkvliet agreed to pay her neighbor's water bill and he

Dog fighting suspected

at Bluff Road residence

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

On Saturday, Franklin County animal control seized two
severely injured pit bulls suspected of being used for dog
fighting.
Richard Duncan, of 1122 Bluff Road in Apalachicola, may
be charged with animal cruelty as a result of the raid.
Norred & Associates, an Atlanta-based private investi-
gative and security firm spearheaded the rescue of two of
the dogs.
Over the weekend, Phil Gallacher, a retired Atlanta po-
lice officer, was following a lead received on Norred's toll-
free, animal cruelty tip line.
"We were notified that the property located at 1122 Bluff
Road in Apalachicola was possibly a dog fighting location,"
said Gallacher. In addition to uncovering what may have
been an pit bull training and fighting site, Gallacher also
found two severely wounded pit bulls being kept on short
chains.
Because of the severity of the dogs' injuries, Gallacher
went to the home of Sheriff Skip Shiver, who promptly dis-
patched investigators and animal control officers. On hand
with Gallacher were Lee Adams, an investigator with the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Panama City of-
fice; Lt. Ronald Crum, from the sheriff 's office; and Albert
Floyd and Fonda Davis, both with animal control.
"We have been investigating dog fighting cases for
years," said Gallacher. "Of the over 250 dogs our team has

Suspect in inmate

stabbing death dies


of apparent suicide
By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
An inmate who prison
officials say stabbed his
cellmate to death early
Monday morning at Frank-
lin Correctional Institution
died R~esday afternoon of
an apparent suicide.
After Nathaniel Taylor, a
43-year-old convicted sex of- NIATHANIIEL
fender, was stabbed to death TAYLOR
in his cell early Monday
morning, the inmate whom
authorities suspected in the
crime, Christopher Lunz,
41, was moved later that
day to Florida State Prison
in Raiford, the Florida De-

mos sure ac ltrrcios CHRISTOPHER
At 12:35 p.m. R~esday, LUNIZ

shank, a homemade weapon, while they
were in their cell. Lunz was serving a life
sentence for the March 2003 shotgun slaying
of his father in Palm Harbor.
Plessinger said when prison officials
opened the cell doors, they heard Lunz say-
ing that he had a hostage and warning of-
ficers to stay back. Officials say Lunz also
stabbed a second inmate Monday morning,
although that inmate's wounds are not life-
threatening. Prison officials declined to re-
lease the second victim's name because of
medical privacy regulations.
The second victim was not a cellmate
of Lunz's, Plessinger said. "Because it just
happened, we're still investigating but some
details are blurry at this point," she said.
Plessinger said a captain approached
Lunz after the stabbing, talked him out of
the weapon and got control of the situation.
The facility, located just outside Carrabelle,
then went into restricted movement for the
next several hours.
Taylor was convicted in March 1996 in
Volusia County on two sex-related offenses,
lewd and lascivious assault on a child under
age 16, and coercion of a sex act on a child
by an adult.
He served approximately 7 1/2 years for
the crimes, and was released in Dec. 2003.
Taylor returned to prison in June 2006 after
violating his parole and was expected to be
incarcerated until Sept. 2016.

dropped the complaint. The seven dogs
were confiscated by animal control
Kincaid wrote in his report there were
previous complaints about dogs at the
Owens Drive address, including dogs run-
ning at large and parvo contamination of
puppies purchased from Kerkvliet.
Parvo, or canine parvovirus type 2, is
a contagious virus mainly affecting dogs.
The disease is highly infectious and is
spread from dog-to-dog by contact with
feces. It can be especially severe in pup-
pies. The common signs are severe vom-
iting and bloody diarrhea.
The Kerkvliets were also suspected of
operating a kennel without a license, ac-
cording to Kincaid's Sept. 3 police report.
In Nov. 2008, while investigating a charge
of child abuse, Kincaid found 24 dogs
chained at the Owens Dr. address, and
said the Kerkvliets appeared to be operat-
ing a "puppy mill" at that time, with dogs
offered for sale. They had no business li-
cense or license to operate a kennel.
The child abuse allegation stemmed
from one of the Kerkvliet children not
"cleaning up after the dogs," according to
Kincaid.
On Sept. 3, Kincaid was waved down
by Franklin County Animal Control offi-
cers Albert Floyd and William Key, who
asked him to accompany them to Alice
Kerkvliet's Sharroll Court residence to
investigate a report of animal neglect.
They told him both dogs and horses were
reportedly being starved at 111 Sharroll
Coul caid's report stated he had seen
horses at the Owens Drive property on an
earlier visit but none at the Sharroll Court
property when he, Williams and Floyd ar-
rived Sept. 3. What he did find was five
dogs and a litter of newborn puppies in
extreme distress. All of the puppies died
within 24 hours.
A neighbor took two of the dogs, which
she said had been given to her by Kerky-
liet. The other three adult dogs, a male
and two females, are being offered for
adoption by animal control. They are in
desperate need of a good home.
Kincaid wrote that the male dog ap-
peared sick and emaciated.
That dog had to be taken to Eastpoint
veterinarian Dr. Hobson Fulmer for im-
mediate treatment, Johnson said, and a
blood transfusion was required to save its
life.
IEilmer described the dog as flea-in-
fested, highly anemic and heavily infected
with hookworms but said he responded
well to treatment and was heartworm
negative. The dog was released on Sept.

Kerkvliet has told neighbors she plans
to join her husband, who she said is living
on a horse farm in Gainesville.
Johnson said he will go to court as
soon as possible to request Kerkvliet be
banned from owning animals. He said he
is concerned about the whereabouts of
the missing horses.
If you have any information about the
horses or any other neglected or abused
animal, please call the landfill 670-8167.


The three confiscated dogs are in need
of a foster home or a permanent owner.
Johnson said they seem to have good
temperaments.
"These people are talking about mov-
ing, but that ruling will follow them wher-
ever they go," Johnson said, in a tele-
phone interview.
Johnson said if the court issues the
ban on animal ownership, all animal shel-
ters in Florida will be notified of Kerky-
liet's status.

MU~S U


7 ~Located in Carrabelle, Florida,
:r **-----.repository of a most important


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 sixty
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 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.

I am always in a rush
whenever I travel by air.
Since 9/11 you need to be at ,
the airport one to two hours a
before your flight. I get up at
4 a.m. to make sure I won't
be late. Then, I never know
how long it will take to getJ
through the screening line.
After that I feel the need CO
to rush to the gate, in case
it has been changed and I have to
rush to another in another wing. At
my age I also want to be able to find
a seat in the waiting area because
after all this rushing I am pretty
tired. I am afraid to stop and buy a
magazine or a bite to eat. I must get
to my destination,
I will admit that our airport here
in Tallahassee is one of the easiest
in the world to navigate. Still, I rush.
Therefore, it is understandable
that when I saw a table set up with
chances to win a vacation, I gave it
a glance and was ready to hurry by.
Nurse Judy, my alter ego,
however, was determined that I
would fill out a form. "I don't want
to take the time to search through
my bag for a pen or pencil," I said.
(My purse is a veritable suitcase all
by itself and has all kinds of gadgets
in it. The problem is I can never
find what I need, especially when in
a hurry.)
Nurse Judy refused to budge.
"I'm not going to move until you fill
out one of these forms," she said.
"We need a vacation. "
I tried to push her along but she
spotted a computer.
"Oh, you can sign up on this,"
she said, and with her insistence,
I did it in a matter of seconds. We


got to our gate on time and
continued on our trip.
We had barely gotten
home when I received a
call that we had won the
Runway Rewards Contest
for July. Visions of flying
UY to Greece or Italy filled
my head. The lovely lady
NELINI who called informed me
that my two-day trip was
to Apalachicola. Believe it or not
I was not disappointed. I love
Apalachicola and a couple of weeks
later, Nurse Judy and I drove
there with all our wonderful gift
certificates.
We stayed in a gorgeous condo at
the new Water Street Hotel, where
we were treated like celebrities.
Nurse Judy, of course, was in her
glory. She strutted around in her
new caftan, and waved to every
passing boat from the screened-
in sun porch. She wasn't quite so
cocky in her new swimsuit since
it was my chubby body that was
squeezed into it. Nevertheless, she
covered it with a pretty silk poncho
and slipped quickly into and out of
the pool, exposing as little of me as
she could. Since we had the pool all
to ourselves, I don't know why she
bothered.
We shopped in all the little shops,
bought kitty treats to feed all the
stray cats that were wandering
around, and ate delicious seafood. It
was a delightful two-day hiatus.
Getting her out of town was quite
a chore. She loves the spotlight. She
loves being treated like a celebrity.
She loves being a diva. She didn't
want to leave. She pretended
acquaintance with some of the


affluent folks who came by yacht
to stay at the hotel. She traipsed
down to the dock to see them off.
She gave them her queenly wave. I
could tell they had no idea who this
matronly woman was calling out
"Bon Voyage" to them.. They smiled
weakly and gave her a half-hearted
salute.
I finally got her to the checkout
desk, but she immediately began
asking about rates and telling me
we could extend our stay. As soon
as I heard the rates I knew that we
couldn't, but I used my job and my
cat as excuses why we had to get
home.
"You never let me have any fun.
You care more about that cat than
you do me. Did that cat ever win you
a vacation?"
I thought about what she said.
I did owe a lot of thanks.-thanks to
the Tallahassee Airport and Runway
Rewards; thanks to the Water
Street Hotel and the Apalachicola
Chamber of Commerce, and yes
thanks to Nurse Judy. Without her,
none of this would have happened.
More later,
Judy

PS. I know that Havana is
Florida's friendliest town. I see the
sign every day. I think Crawfordville
is a close second and Apalachicola
is right up there, too. Aren't we
lucky to live in the Panhandle?

Judy Conlin writes columns
for The Havana Herald and The
Wakulla News about her alter ego
Nurse Judy. You can learn more

A couple of weeks
of ago I heard a group
of kids talking and they
said a teacher told them
that there was one
Franklin County School
kindergartner who had
the swine flu and by the
end of the day there were
three more cases. They
also said that the
school tried to
keep everyone
from knowing
but Idoubt that
was true because
schools are
required to let
everyone know YOU-
about things like WI
this.
Adding to this there
were more cases of
the swine flu at the
Apalachicola Bay Charter
School. The swine flu is
rapidly spreading and
everyone should take
precautions. In taking
precautions please make
sure you wash your hands
and use hand sanitizer
after touching public
things like the door knob,
etc. If you or your child
show any sign of sickness
it would be best if you are
seen by a doctor ASAP
so you can treat your
sickness and keep from
getting other people sick.
And don't try going to
work or sending child to
school.

I can honestly say that
Franklin County High
School has done a great
job in improving this year.
We are now able to have
water in the classrooms
which is great and our
uniform has a new twist.
This year we have new
shirts which are very
casual polo shirts with a
new twist to the
logo and everyone
is enjoying the
new fashion. Even
the pep rallies
have stepped up
this year. Some
say Coach Wright
KW-really knows how
IHO to crank up the
crowd and have a
lot of fun with the school
spirit.
My classes are great
and my schedule is
excellent; there is really
nothing to complain
about. The lunch has also
improved and they are
now selling homemade
pizza which the students
adore so much.
Now let's talk about the
Seahawks. Can you say
first win in three years? I
was shocked when I heard
they beat the cotton out
of Cottondale and boy
was I glad. Maybe this
could be a new beginning
for the football team
and I think there will be
plenty more games won
this year. I think Coach
Wright is the cure for
the Seahawks' losing
illness and I think the
antidote is showing signs
of improvement already.
I even think the teachers
are starting to show sign
of wanting to actually
be at school now, thanks
to the improvement of
FCHS staff, students,
and environment. Go
Seahawks!

from me three years ago
there was $35,000 in the
bank, when I got it back
last week, there was $25."

In contrast, I found
apathy, disdain, impatience
and not a small degree
of arrogance from some
member of our BOCC. One
has to ask themselves, why
the difference? Between
30 and 40 citizens who
attended could only shake
their heads in disbelief.
Here's what I said to the
BOCC at the first Budget
Adoption Hearing on
Sept. 9:
The Concerned
Citizens of Franklin
County is not an
organization of outsiders.
Our hundreds of members
and their families are a
cross-section of everyone
in the county. We have
teachers, merchants,
boat captains, oysterman,
politicians, county
workers, investors,
deputies, retired folks and
just about every other type
person you could think of
as members. We are not
the enemy, we are you.
For the last several
years I have stood
before you and asked
that you exercise fiscal
responsibility and
restraint in setting the
millage rate, which
you alone control. This
year, I want to direct
my comments to those
commissioners among
you who feel a greater
responsibility to some
constituents than others.
One only has to look at the
over 2,400 tax certificates
advertised for sale this
very year. Will it be more
than 3,000 next year?
Please think for a minute
of those hundreds and
hundreds of people who
had dreams, aspirations,


Absolutely shameful.
Within that story is
another apparent tale of
theft and deception by
Vince Raffield, husband
of Linda Raffield. Here is
the sequence of events:
One, Mr. Vince writes
a book. Two, Mr. Vince
has 300 copies of his
book printed and the
$2,400 printing costs are
paid for by the seafood
workers. Three, Mr.
Vince tells everyone
that the proceeds from
the sales of his book
will go to the FCSWA.
But, according to Mrs.
James, the truth is that


Howze can ?;ou, jn

g~od faith, favor

O~ne group of


ar~Other?
homes and a belief that
you commissioners would
look after their best
interests.
How can you, in good
faith, favor one group
of constituents over
another? How can any
of you sleep at night
and not visualize the
pain and suffering high
taxes exact on so many
people? There are many
avenues you can choose
to alleviate the pain and
spread it out more evenly
and prudently. It simply
is not enough for you to
say "We did the best we
could" when you did not.
I wish it were possible
that everyone who is
going to lose their home
or land could talk with
you. I wish that everyone
that is struggling to pay
their taxes could stand
up here and tell you what
they are doing without in
order to pay their taxes.
But, they can't or won't
and that's why I'm up here
this evening asking you to
never forget the hardship
that so many people are
enduring in this economy.
I don't believe that
any of you are uncaring,
cruel or just don't
understand the problem.
I do believe that some
commissioners have not
really seen the pain that
these taxes exact on so
many. It might not seem


not one penny from the
sales of Mr. Vince's book
has been returned to the
seafood workers of our
county. Again, absolutely
shameful.
I have a couple of
guesses. I would guess
that the missing money
will never be recovered.
And I would guess that
those responsible will not
be held accountable in
the end. For the sake of
the men and women who
work the bay, let's hope
and pray for a better
outcome.
Respectfully,
Richard Harper

to be fair to lay this guilt
trip at your doorstep, but
that's what you signed
up for when you ran for
office and took the oath
of office. I plead with
you, not to dismiss these
concerns with a wave
of the hand, but search
your heart and soul and
ask yourself privately
what responsibility you
have to the hundreds of
people that are not here
tonight, but will suffer
the consequences of your
decision. I ask that you
don't throw up your hands
in frustration. We can do
better for our citizens; we
must be better stewards
of the public trust than
we have been in the past.
Thank you.
We get the government
we deserve. Over and
over Chairman Parrish
stated "it's not our fault"
and "we've cut the budget
by $5 million dollars over
the last three years; we've
done a good job." It was
disingenuous then and
it's disingenuous now.
No such budget cutting
occurred. The question is:
What will you do about it?
Please attend the next
and final budget adoption
hearing in large numbers.
This is the only hope we
have to rein in spending
and to protect you when
property values rise again.
Does Franklin County
really need a $47 million
budget in these austere
times? Come out next
Monday and tell them
what you think.

A tale of tWO
hearings

There are always two
county budget adoption
hearings. We've had
the first, and now we'll
have the second and
final hearing on Monday,
Sept. 28 at 5:15 p.m. in
the Courthouse Annex.
The School Board
has already passed
their approximately 28
percent increase. Not
a single person spoke
out in opposition at that
hearing.
Now, our county
commissioners, on a
vote of 3-2 in favor, are
proposing to increase
the millage rate by
about 11 percent. By
voting against the
budget, Commissioners
Jackel and Sanders
should be commended
in understanding the
slap in the face to the
taxpayers handed down
by Chairman Parrish and
Commissioners Lockley
and Putnal,
In contrast, we
commend the Alligator
Point Water Resource
District (APWRD) for
reducing their proposed 30
percent initial increase in
the millage to no increase
after considering the
effect on their district and
making necessary changes
to the budget to support
the reduced millage rate.
Here's the crux of the
issue. The Board member
of the APWRD felt concern
for their constituents and
expressed a willingness to
reconsider at the APWRD
Budget Adoption Hearing.

teacher is a good teacher should be the
concern, not what color is her skin.
I have had plenty of white teachers
and enough black teachers and they
all have taught me something I didn't
know before. Mrs. Alice Joseph, Mrs.
Lorine Banks, Ms. Elinor Mount-
Simmons, Mrs. Angeline Stanley, and
Mrs. Adrian Joseph all have been great
teachers to me and taught me well, but
so have Mrs. Eva White, Mrs. Audrey
Gay, Mrs. LeeAnna Parrish, Mrs. Mary
Williams, and Mrs. Denise Roux. Aren't
they all equal if they all have given me
knowledge to use in the future? I am a
black student myself and race has never
been a disability to my knowledge.
You know there aren't many black
teachers in the Franklin County area.
Could this be the answer to Mr. Croom's
letter? Maybe there wasn't a black
teacher that applied to be a teacher at
the ABC school. No disrespect but I'm
quite sure if they hired a black cook
then they wouldn't mind hiring a black
teacher. Some things are just blown
out of proportion for no reason. I have
never seen so many racial issues in the
newspaper in my life.

Soon there will be a new bar/club
opening which will be owned by Mr.
John Croom. With this new opening
there will be a couple of challenges.
Why? Because the new place will be
competing with AJ's Bar & Grill. They
are both located on MLK Blvd and 9th
Street, less than 15 yards away from
each other. Some say the new club will
gain all of AJ's potential customers.
Some also say AJ's will maintain their
regular customers.
I think both establishments will
share an equal profit of customers in
Franklin County. Younger customers
love AJ's atmosphere and AJ's also
has great food. Older customers might
prefer the new club because some
don't like to party with youngsters.
Which they don't know what they're
missing out on, but who are really the
party poopers? I honestly think both
businesses will benefit greatly from the
community. So could this be a double
portion of goodness?

While tax receipts will be
down in 2010, Carrabelle has
managed to keep its millage
rate unchanged through thrift
and planning.
At their first budget meet-
ing on Sept. 15, the Carra-
belle commission discussed
the budget for the 2009-10
fiscal year, beginning Oct.
1. Estimated tax receipts of
$1.17 million are down about
$348,000 from last year, be-
cause the city's property val-
ues dropped by 15.2 percent,
from $275.1 million to $233.2
million,
Various other taxes and
fees add just under a half-mil-
lion dollars, so Carrabelle will
have $1.64 million to spend
this year, as opposed to $1.87
million last year.
With careful budgeting,
City Administrator Court-
ney Millender and City Clerk
Keisha Smith, working with
department heads, have bal-
anced the books and managed
to recommend Carrabelle's
tax rate be kept at 5.5 mills.
City employees have re-
quested a 3 percent across-
the-board pay raise and Mil-
lender said the commission is
considering the option in spite
of tough economic times.
"They told me to rework
the budget with the 3 percent
raise in there. I don't think
they've decided anything yet,"
said Millender in a telephone
interview.
Representatives of the Car-
rabelle branch of the county
public library, the Carrabelle
Food Pantry and several oth-
er not-for-profit organizations
were on hand asking for fund-
ing.
"We stay busy," Librarian
Carolyn Sparks told the com-
mission. "We had over 17,000
people come in this year and
I see more and more coming

food stamps. We don't charge
them for copies or anything
because we know how hard
times are."
The commission is consid-
ering increasing the money
allotted for charitable dona-
tions above the 1 percent
adopted in a memo of record
a few years ago, Millender
said.
"I want to see the food
pantry get as least as much
money as they did last year,"
said Commissioner Richard
Sands.
The commission may also
set some money aside for do-
nations throughout the year.
Millender said adminis-
trative salaries have been
reduced by around $18,000,
due in part of John McInnis'
retirement last year. Much
of this salary reduction was


offset because other employ-
ees whose salaries had been
shared between departments
will now be paid entirely un-
der the administrative line
item in the budget.
An employee, transferred
temporarily to the administra-
tive budget as a maintenance
employee at the new city
complex, has now been trans-
ferred back to the streets and
roads department. The main-
tenance position is now filled
by an employee provided by
WorkForce Florida at no cost
to the city for an additional
saving.
Capital projects were re-
duced by over $150,000 this
year. Last year the city bud-
geted $60,000 to refurbish the
old Carrabelle School into the
Carrabelle Municipal Center.
Another $60,000 was spent


in a one-time expenditure to
reproduce the Crooked River
Lighthouse keeper's house.
The water and sewer de-
partment spent $46,000 on
radio-read water meters and
a PVC pipe locator last year,
also a one-time expense.
Millender said officials re-
duced the budget further by
correcting the allotment for
fuel. "We budgeted too much
for gas last year. This year we
adjusted the amount by aver-
aging what we spent over the
last nine months," she said.
Fuel cost for the Water and
Sewer budget was reduced
by $6,000; fuel costs for the
city budget were reduced by
$22,000.
The final budget hearing is
scheduled for Tuesday, Sept.
29 at 6 p.m. at the Carrabelle
Municipal Complex.

Times City Editor

Even as it awaits the
renovation of the former
Holy Family Center into a
multi-faceted community
center, Elder Care Services
of Franklin County is brac-
ing for more belt-tighten-
mng.
Dr. Jim Croteau, a pro-
fessional educator who as-
sumed the reins of Elder
Care Services of North
Florida in April 2007, said
the Franklin County out-
reach has been forced to
relocate to the new Apala-
chicola Community Center
at the former Apalachicola
High School.
In addition Elder Care
is eying cuts to the county's
12 employees, both full and
part-time, Croteau said.
"In the last two years,
we've invested almost
$200,000 in Franklin County
out of Leon County funds,"
he said. "Obviously we can't
continue so we have to
make some changes."
At last month's budget
workshops, county com-
missioners agreed to award
$26,208 to Elder Care Ser-
vices for the upcoming bud-
get year, 2009-10, the same
as last year. This money
covers the local matching
dollars requirement for fed-
eral money that flows into
Elder Care's two major pro-
grams in the county: Meals-
on-Wheels and other relat-
ed nutrition programs, and
in-home services, such as
personal care, homemak-
ing and case management.
Over the past year, reads
the website, Elder Care
Services provided 32,054
Meals on Wheels to 100
homebound seniors, 2,824
congregate meals at two
sites, 3,260 trips to congre-
gate sites, grocery shopping
andotheressentialerrands,
and 6,000 hours of in-home
services, such as home-
making, personal care and


"We will provide it but
our goal is to move that to
a local organization that
manages it," Croteau said.
"We'd like to make that first
step. There's good support
for Meals on Wheels in the
community. We're not going
to let that go away. That's
an important part of the
community."
He said the Elder Care
board will decide this week
whether to continue to
oversee in-home services.
"Today we're committed
through December," he
said. "I will ask them to
extend until June 20, 1010
the contract with the Area
Agency."
Croteau said in the long
run the Area Agency would
prefer to have a local non-
profit be affiliated with the
new senior center. "Or they
would like to do it with local
government," he said. "It
could be the county or city."
Croteau stressed that
the need for volunteers
would spell the difference.
"We're willing to continue
that if we can get the volun-
teers," he said."The biggest
challenge we face is there's
not enough in the grants to
cover the required adminis-
trative costs without those
volunteers.
"We think the future is
bright in Franklin County
once the senior center is
open," he said. "We'll get
better congregate meals
response, more volunteers,
and higher visibility in the
community.
"We're not going to leave
the clients in Franklin
County without support,"
he stressed. "If we get the
senior companions, we'd be
happy to continue to admin-
ister it from here."


The former Holy Family Center will become a senior
center thanks to a $1.5 million state grant.

Florida, left, and Bert Ivey, who directs the county


costs, that we have to pay
for direct care. If we don't
find those people within
six months, it's going to be
hard to continue program
down there."
Croteau said when the
new community center is
created at the site of the
former Holy Family cen-
ter, funded with a $1.5 mil-
lion grant from the Florida
Department of Elder Af-
fairs, the situation should
improve, mainly because
there will be a higher level
of congregate meals on
site.
"Liberty, Jackson and
Calhoun have very active
senior centers, with 30 to
40 people who come there
for congregate meals and
provide services," he said.
"That helps their budget."
Cindy Giametta, grant
writer for Apalachicola, said
engineers Bailey, Bishop &
Lane are currently working
on design specifications,
and once those plans are
completed the project will
be put out to bid.
She said the grant allows
for $100,000 to be spent on
engineering and architect


fees. "It's going to bethe se-
nior center, the community
center and African -Ameri-
can heritage center," she
said. "Basically the senior
center is going to have the
whole structure."
Croteau said his board is
weighing how much money
to spend on subsidizing
the Franklin program as
it moves towards handing
over responsibility of the
program to a local entity.
"Lastyearwe put$90,000
of own money to keep the
program afloat, and this
year we're on track to lose
$70,000 to $90,000," he said.
Croteau said Elder Care
is sticking with plans to of-
fer programs at the reno-
vated Apalachicola center,
but that he would like to see
a movement towards local
autonomy.
"The idea is to have the
senior center establish it-
self as independent agency
and be run out of the coun-
ty," he said. "We're losing
money but we don't want
to abandon the 100 clients,
given there is no agency
willing or a capable of tak-
ing over,

care management.
Croteau said county is
strapped for funds due to a
number of reasons.
"It's all reimburse-
ment," he said. "Because
Franklin County is so big,
a large part of the services
involve a lot of travel, and a
significant piece of the bud-
get has to cover travel.
"We've been giving
meals to everybody who
needed one, and provided
more meals than we have
been reimbursed by the
state or supported by the
community," he said.
Croteau said that while
the county commission has
been helpful, the county pro-
gram has not seen "a whole
lot of local contributions,"
especially when compared
to other counties,
The biggest dropoff in
funds comes in reference
to in-home services, which
can be billed to the Area
Agency on Aging at $18 per
hour.
The problem is, Cro-
teau explained, that Elder
Care must purchase these
respite and companion
services, and so has only a
small margin to work with,
as opposed to other coun-
ties that rely on Senior


last month's county budget


Corps volunteers who re-
ceive only a $5,000 annual
federal stipend for their
work.
"Administration is not
reimbursable," he said.
"They compensate us for
care management, and we
have a couple case manag-
ers that are working, but
they don't pay us for doing
payroll, rent, utilities, etc.
"There's not enough
margin to cover the admin-
istrative overhead," Cro-
teau said. "That's what's
killing us.
"We've run up against
a wall trying to recruit se-
nior companions," he said.
"There's not a whole lot of
low-income retired people
willing to give us 20 hours
a week, unlike other coun-
ties where we have waiting

He said that to beeligible
for becoming a Senior Com-
panion, individuals must be
over age 55 and meet low-
income requirements. He
said the stipend does not
count against Social Secu-

Times City Editor

The Apalachicola city com-
mission is about to take the
last step in setting the tax rate
for next year, agreeing to a 22.6
percent rise in the millage rate,
from 5.96 to 7:31 mills.
The proposed millage rate,
approved unanimously on first
reading on Sept. 15, represents
a quarter-mill drop from the
7.56 mills that was originally
proposed last month.
At 7.31 mills, the 2009-10 mill-
age rate would be a scant 0.12
mills above the rollback rate, or
the equivalent of 1.67 percent
more. The rollback rate is the
amount of millage that the city


would have to levy to bring in
the same amount of revenue as
the year before.
City Clerk Lee Mathes told
commissioners that the 2009-
10 budget of $3.69 million would
allocate $2.09 million for the
general fund, and $1.6 million to
the enterprise fund, which cov-
ers water and sewer operations
based on billing receipts.
Retired economist Dick
Dosik, who has served on the
committee advising city offi-
cials on the budget, prepared a
letter read aloud by Mayor Van
Johnson.
"The economic circumstanc-
es in which the 2009-10 budget
was prepared was pretty much
the same in Apalachicola as in
the rest of the world," he wrote.


"The busting of the real estate
bubble and subsequent reces-
sion cut sharply into revenue
while expenditure tended to
remain at a level reflecting the
enthusiasm of the boom years.
Governments usually seek to
adjust to adverse circumstanc-
es by taking measures on both
fronts cutting spending and
raising revenue.
"Apalach's budget takes a
different approach by seek-
ing to place the entire burden
of adjustment on the revenue
side," Dosik continued. "Both
expenses and revenues remain
at the $2.0 million level reached
last year. Not only are total ex-
penses untouched but there
seems to have been virtually no
change of any consequence in


individual line items of expen-
diture.
"The only department show-
ing a sharp increase is Admin-
istrative Operations (about
$20,000 for salaries); the only
department whose budget is
significantly lower than last
years City Hall (nearly $100,000
for salaries)," he wrote. "To
balance the budget it was nec-
essary to raise the millage rate
by more than 20 percent to the
legal maximum.
"If the recession proves
short-lived and both the nation-
al and Apalach economies start
growing again, the strategy of
maintaining expenditures will
have been a wise one," Dosik
concluded. "People, projects
and politicians will have been


protected from unnecessary
disruption,
"On the other hand, if the
recovery is late and/or slow, it
will not be possible to avoid cut-
ting expenditures next year and
the required cuts could well be
more difficult than if a start had
been made on cutting expendi-
ture in this year's budget," he
closed.
Johnson summarized Dosik's
analysis this way. "If things get
worse, we may be faced with
more disastrous cuts next year,"
he said. "If they don't, we'll be
heroes."
The second public hearing,
for final adoption of next year's
budget, is Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 6
p.m. at the community center at
Battery Park.


rescued, these dogs here
were in the worst condition
of any we've seen to date."
A veteran private in-
vestigator, Gallacher said
he was disgusted at the
deplorable condition of the
dogs. "I would have gath-
ered additional evidence,
but couldn't stand to let
those poor animals suffer
another minute in the state
they were in," he said.
Duncan, owner of the
dogs, told animal control
he had left home on Tues-
day morning and, when he
came back, the dogs had
broken loose and appeared
to have been injured while
fighting each other.
"I doctored them the
best I could and staked
them back out," he said.
After examining the ani-
mals, Dr. Hobson Fulmer of
Apalachicola Bay Animal
Clinic wrote that both dogs
were eight to 10 pounds
underweight with dozens
of old scars. He counted
32 puncture wounds on the
face, head and front limbs
of one of the dogs and
over 70 on the other dog.
He wrote that the injuries
were consistent with fight-
ing activity.
"You would think after
all of the publicity about Mi-
chael Vick it would change
the way people think. Ap-
parently it has not," said
Fulmer, in a telephone in-
terview. "This will continue
to happen until dog fighting
becomes socially unaccept-
able in some circles. Unfor-

tunately, even if these dogs
injuries can be healed,
once a dog has fought it's
likely to fight again. It is a
loaded gun. It's a shame.
Pit bulls can be wonderful
dogs."
Gallacher wrote that
the two dogs "touched
noses when they were in
the process of being re-
moved from the property.


They must have sensed
they were going to a better
place."
Gallacher and Joel Nor-
red, undersheriff of Frank-
lin County, both said the
investigation is ongoing.
All evidence has been sub-
mitted the Florida State's
Attorney's Office for pos-
sible criminal prosecution.
Law enforcement offi-


cials are weighing the pos-
sibility that the dogs were
being trained to hunt wild
hogs. State laws prevent
dogs from being trained
in that manner using live
bait.

tion with Norred & Associ-
ates, the investigators who
received the tip that led to
the seizure of the pit bulls.

The steady rise in
Franklin County's unem-
ployment rate since last
fall appeared to have hit a
plateau last month.
According to prelimi-
nary labor market statis-
tics released Friday by
the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation, the
county's overall jobless
rate remained unchanged
at 7.1 percent in August,
as 340 people out of a labor
force of 4,793 were without
work.
The jobless rate in July
also stood at 7.1 percent,
with 346 people looking for
employment out of a larg-
er labor force of 4,874.
One year ago, Frank-
lin's workforce was even
larger, at 4,881, and its job-
less rate much lower, at
4.6 percent, with only 224
jobless.
Franklin's August num-
hers placed it as sixth best
in the state, behind Lib-
erty County, at 5.6 percent,
Monroe and Walton coun-
ties, each at 6.5 percent,
Okaloosa at 6.9 percent
and Lafayette at 7.0 per-
cent. Many of the counties
with low unemployment
rates have a relatively high
percentage of government
workers and more tour-
ism during the summer
months.
"We're happy to see


that Franklin County's un-
employment rate has lev-
eled off," said Kim Bodine,
executive director for
the Gulf Coast Workforce
Board. "In smaller coun-
ties the unemployment
rate isn't always a true
reflection of employment
since many residents com-
mute to work."
Florida's seasonally ad-
justed unemployment rate
for August 2009 is 10.7 per-
cent, nearly unchanged
from the revised July rate
of 10.8 percent and up 4.2
percentage points from
one year ago.
The state's current
unemployment rate is 1.0
percentage points higher
than the national rate of
9.7 percent. The last time
the unemployment rate
was higher than the past
three months was October
1975 when it was 11.0 per-
cent.
The loss of Florida jobs
has been 5.2 percent over
the past year, or about
372,000 jobs shed from the
state's 7.7 million. This is
steeper than the nation's
4.3 percent rate of decline.
Florida's downturn started
in Aug. 2007 with declines
in construction jobs, but
has now spread to almost
all other major industries.
"The relative stabil-
ity of Florida's unemploy-
ment rate over the past
few months is encourag-
ing. We anticipate im-


next year. Florida's unem-
ployment rate is forecast
to peak at 11.0 percent in
the second quarter of 2010
before beginning a gradu-
al decrease.
The industries losing
the most jobs are profes-
sional and business servic-
es; trade, transportation,
and utilities; construction;
manufacturing; leisure
and hospitality; financial
activities; information and
total government.
These industry job
losses are partially due to
weakness in motor vehicle
and parts dealers; em-
ployment services; spe-
cialty trade contractors;
fabricated metal product
manufacturing; amuse-
ment, gambling, and rec-
reation; credit interme-
diation; publishing; local
government and repair
and maintenance.
Private education and
health services, which
grew by 4,900 jobs this
year, is the only sector
gaining jobs among Flor-
ida's major industries.
All of the increase is due
to health care and social
assistance, primarily in
nursing and residential
care facilities.


provement in Florida's job
market in the second quar-
ter of next year and are al-
ready seeing glimmers of
hope to that effect," said
Agency for Workforce In-
novation Director Cynthia
R. Lorenzo.
Governor Crist has pro-
claimed September Work-
force Development Month
in Florida. The state's Re-
gional Workforce Boards


are hosting more than 40
workforce development
events statewide to link
Floridians with available
employment and train-

working opportunities and

For the second consecu-
tive week, the Franklin County
Seahawks shut out their oppo-
nents, giving the program its
first back-to-back wins since it
began.
Franklin County rolled up 214
yards rushing in the first half,
and four different players scored
en route to a 40-0 victory Friday
that clinched the program's
first-ever winning streak.
"Everybody contributed,"
Coach John Wright said. "We
called off the dogs and spot re-
placed until we had them all re-
placed.
"Everybody played. It was a
good experience," he said. "It
was a road trip, to learn how to
travel and learn how to play as
the favorite, and learn how to
handle the situation when you
are ahead.
"We're trying to keep every
player involved in what we're
doing," Wright said. "We're try-
ing to spread the ball out and be
as balanced as we can and de-
velop our passing game."
The Seahawks struck first
blood at Destin Middle School,
when junior runninghback Jame s


for a 14-0 lead.
The Seahawks scored three
more times before the half.
Modican threw a 60-yard scor-
ing strike to senior wide re-
ceiver Dustin Putnal on the first
play of the second quarter for a
21-0 lead, after Olvera's kick was
good.
Senior fullback DJ Lane, who
led the team on the ground with
93 yards on five carries, rum-
bled in from 75 yards out for the
Seahawks' fourth touchdown of
the night. Olvera's kick was no
good, and Franklin County led
27-0.
On the final play of the first
half, Winfield scored his second
TD when he ran in for 12 yards.
Olvera's kick was good, and the
Seahawks had a 34-0 halftime
lead.
The Seahawks scored for the
fifth and final time in the third
quarter, when Turrell ran in
from 55 yards. Olvera's kick was
no good, accounting for the 40-0
score.
."He's striking it pretty good,"
said the coach of Olvera's kick-
ing. "He kicked off two in the
end zones and made a tackle on
kickoffs."

Winfield made a nice cutback on

Sports


Not only did Franklin Coun-
ty secure its first wins in the
program's three years; the Se-
ahawks also registered their
highest point total, besting the
20 they scored against Jay last
season.
The Seahawks recorded their
second straight shutout, this time
against a Knights squad that was
coming off its highest scoring ef-
fort (40) in its two-year history.
Chris Behnken led Rocky Bayou
with 65 yards rushing.
Sophomore linebacker Chris
Granger had the defense with
12 tackles in the shutout, in-
cluding eight solos and four as-
sists. Senior linebacker Chase
Richards had 10 tackles, senior
defensive end AJ Arnold eight,
freshman defensive end CJ
Barnes seven, and senior safety
Gary Larsen six.
Wright said 25 of 31 players
recorded tackles in the game.
"The defensive line is begin-
ning to understand how to play


up and down the line of scrim-
mage and not playing up field,"
the coach said, "which has al-
lowed our linebackers to scrape
and plug and make plays. Our
defensive ends, Arnold and
Barnes, allowed the linebackers
to make plays."
With 63 yards passing and 306
yards rushing, the Seahawks
combined for 369 total yards
against a team Wright tipped
his hat to.
"Those guys played hard," he
said. "They're well-coached. You
still have to show up and get af-
ter it. They just didn't hand it to
us, but we responded defensive-
ly and played sound defense."
This week the team spent
time getting ready to travel to
Graceville on Friday.
"It's a game we need to
play," Wright said. We're evenly
matched, but they have more of a
winning tradition. At 0-2, they're
hungry for a win.
"We need a game where we


and they have some good-look-
ing skills guys.
"They're well-coached. You
can tell on film they're doing what
they're supposed to," Wright
said. "Hopefully we can counter
that with some of the same com-
mitment and execution. We're
well aware we're going into a
tough atmosphere to play."

It just took a toll on
the positive attitudes of

We got off to a slow start

Editor's Note: When the Times
ran the photo to the right two weeks
ago, we got more response than we
expected. Not one, but two, children
who grew up on St. Vincent Island
called to comment on the identity of
the man and child pictured.
Lorine Glass and Carolyn Vause,
both ofApalachicola, spent childhood
years on St. Vincent. Vause lived
there for 16 years, from her birth in
1919 until 1931. About 25 years later,
Glass lived there for 10 years, during
the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Both women a reed to share the
fond memories they have of the
island. This week, we will relive 90-
year-old Carrie Cameron Vause's
memories of growing up on St.
Vincent.

seven Cameron children.
"Uncle Dan was just as good
to us as he could be," remembers
Carolyn Cameron Vause. "He'd take
us all the way around the beach to
Flag Island in a little
truck. Sometimes
he'd take one of my
'brothers to Port St.
Joe with him and
they'd spend the
night."
Vause celebrated
CAROLYNI her 90th birthday
CAMERON Saturday.
VAUSE "I was born on the
19th day of the minth
month in 1919," she said.
Her father, George Cameron, was
from Gulfport, Miss., and her mother,
Alice, was born in New Orleans. Her
parents lived on the island at the time
of her birth but came to the mainland
for the delivery, in a house at the site
of the current Apalachicola Bridge.
Her father was a caretaker on
the island and sometimes took
visitors pleasure fishing on his yacht,
Lindbergh, named for national hero
Charles Lindbergh, who in 1927
became the first man to fly solo
nonstop across the Atlantic.

We had everything we needed
"My first memory over there was in
(the) early 1920s. We lived right down
at Indian Pass," she said. "I loved it
on the island. We kids stayed on the
beach always. There were big purple
flowers all over the beach.
"We had everything we needed. My
mom grew a garden down in Valley
Place. It was a wonderful garden.
She plowed in shrimp heads that the
shrimpers gave her," Vause said. "One
time the Cutters, who owned a store
in town, came to the island to fish,
and she had a crop of the best melons.
They bought every one she'd sell them
and sold the melons in town."
During the time Vause's family
lived on St. Vincent, the island was
owned by the Dr. Valentine Mott
Pierce of Buffalo, N.Y. Her older
sister was named Louise Valentine,
after Dr. and Mrs. Pierce. There were

many visitors to the island, including
seafood harvesters, tourists who
stayed in cabins on the east end of St.
Vincent, and visitors to Dr. Pierce's
lodge.
"There was always a crowd over
there with us," she said. "We had all
the seafood we wanted. The fishermen


and shrimpers would all anchor over
there. They'd nose all them boats up
on the beach and play baseball.
"We had a generator under the
house, and we had a big long ice box
under there. We'd buy a big block of

Dr. Valentine Mott Pierce, who
owned St. Vincent Island while the
Camerons lived there, was a captain
of industry. He was the son of Dr. Ray
Vaughn Pierce, who purchased St.
Vincent in 1907.
R. V Pierce was a physician,
graduating in 1862 from Eclectic
Medical College in Cincinnati, which
focused on early American herbal
medicines, including the use of mercury-
based remedies and bloodletting.
After practicing in a hospital for
four years, he became a well-known
entrepreneur and has been described
by scholars of medical history as the
"uberquack" and the "Prince of Quacks
from the Queen City (Buffalo)." He
built and operated the opulent Invalids


Hotel and Surgical Institute in Buffalo,
N.Y., which medical historians say was
patronized by Butch Cassidy and Etta
Pace on their way to Colombia in 1901.
After serving as a member of the
New York state senate from 1877 to
1879, Pierce was elected from New York
as a Republican to the 46th Congress
and served from March 4, 1879, to
Sept. 18, 1880, when he resigned.
He was famous for his herbal
patent medicines, including Pierce's
Pleasant Purgative Pellets, marketed
by the World's Dispensary Medical
Association, a family-owned business.
He authored the "People's Common
Sense Medical Advisor in Plain
English," which sold more than two
million copies and was primarily
a vehicle for marketing his patent

A song of
S t. Vm cent Island

Sometime, she is not sure
when, Carolyn Cameron
Vause wrote a song of her
memories of life on the
island, and she has allowed
us to print it here for you.

As I ran on the beach with
the wind in my hair
Without any worry or
care'
The beautiful sand was as
white as snow
On St. Vincent Island
where wildflowers grow.
With my dad by my side
and my hand in his,
We'd build sand castles
that washed out to sea.
We'd ride through the
island see deer everywhere.
St. Vincent Is and I'm so
glad you're still there.

When the magnolia's in
bloom down by old Picolean,
The blossoms so white the
fragrance supreme,
The mullet are jumping in
Big Bayou.
The wild geese come in
when the wind blows cold.
St. Vincent Island I love
you so,
For the treasures we
shared on your beautiful
shore.

When I ride by the
beaches on the warm summer
day,
I think of my dad and the
things he would say,
"Remember my dear when
I leave this shore
AII the treasures we shared
will last forever more."

Oh now I close my eyes
and dream'
My dad reaches out to me
once again,
He takes me by the hand.
We slowly walk along on
the pretty white sand.
We talk about treasures of
that yesterday,
Of our beautiful river and
Apalach Bay;
How all of this beauty can
be lost someday,
.f a few people can have
their way.

So St. Vincent Island I pray
you stay as you are,
For as long as you are
there my father's not far.


Pierce patriarch 'Prince of Quacks'










Shannon Jenkins,


Trov Segree to wedST
Hand and hand on the edge of the sand...
Because you have shared in our lives,
By your friendship and love,
It is with joy that we, Shannon Jenkins and Troy
Segree invite everyone to share the beginning of our
new lives together as we exchange marriage vows on
Saturday, Sept. 26, 2009 at 6 p.m.
The wedding was at Beach Fever Vacation Rental
Home, 1564 East Gulf Beach Drive, on St. George Is-

Cleveland, Ohio this past
weekend, Sept. 19 and 20, to
enjoy a 100th birthday cel-

Mr. Wargo was born on

came to celebrate the birth-


land where he became the
chief inspector for the Ad-
dressograph-Multigraph
Company before retiring.
Mrs. Wargo was a re-
porter for the Willoughby,
OH News Herald and also
worked in classified adver-
tising for that newspaper as
well as for the "Horse and
'It~ader" magazine.
On Sept. 18 a U.S. flag
was flown over the U.S.

Alma Corbin
Davis, of
Graceville, passed
away peacefully
at her home in
Graceville on
Saturday, Sept. 19,
2009 at the age of
103.AL
General services D1
were held Monday
afternoon, Sept. 21, at
the chapel of James &
Lipford Ekneral Home in
Graceville, with Brother
Ronnie Toole officiating.
Burial followed in Collins
Mill Cemetery, with James
& Lipford Ekneral Home
in Graceville directing.
Family received friends at
the funeral home Sunday
evening.
Mrs. Davis was born
in Washington County
on Sept. 6, 1906, to the
late Jonathan J. and
Florence Barton Morris.
A beloved mother and
grandmother, she worked
with the Gold Kist Peanut
factory for over 25 years.
She then worked with


Grady's Seafood
Restaurant for
over 50 years
and decided to
retire at the age
of 98. A woman
of true character,
Mrs. Davis was
OBNnever idle, always
'IS working and
finding ways to
help her family and friends.
She is preceded in
death by her daughter,
Bonnie Pelham;
granddaughter Kathy
George Gilmore; five
sisters and two brothers,
who included most
recently a sister, Mrs.
Sarah Morris Gay, and a
nephew, Felton R. Gay, Sr.,
both of Apalachicola.
Mrs. Davis is survived
by her children, Allie
Jenkins and husband,
Harold, and Johnnie
George, all of Graceville,
and Mitchell Pelham,
of Dothan; seven
grandchildren, 17 great-
grandchildren and 11
great-great-grandchildren.


God saw that Aunt
Carrie was getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
so He put His arms around
her and whispered, "Come
to Me."
On Dec. 27, 1918, a
beautiful life began, and
on Sept. 6, 2009, a beautiful
life ended. All in the will of
God.
In June 1941, Carrie
Thompson was united in
holy matrimony to Luther
B. McDaniel. They had no
children of their own but
raised Shirley Walker as
their daughter,
At an early life, she
accepted Christ as her
personal savior. Mother
McDaniel united with the
Church of God in Christ
under Elder R. McCloud.
She was active in various
auxiliaries of the church.
Mother McDaniel was
a lovely, sweet person. She
was known to her relatives
and her community as
Aunt Carrie. She loved
her plants and going
fishing. She will be greatly
missed for her kindness,
dedication, loyalty and
gentle spirit to her church
and family until her health


declined. Services she gave

On Sept. 1 County Planner Alan
Pierce told county commissioners
each of the three new sidewalk proj-
ects funded with federal stimulus
money has extensive guidelines that
must be followed by the contractor. He
displayed one packet, a sheaf of paper
over an inch thick.
Pierce said the Florida Department
of Transportation, which awarded the
funds, has agreed to the schedule for
the projects. The county commission
will hold a special meeting at 4 p.m.
on Monday, Sept. 28 to award the con-
tracts.
"It took the federal government
nine months to come up with these
guidelines, but the construction must
be completed in 90 days," said Pierce.
More than $170,000 in federal stim-
ulus money will be spent to construct a


sidewalk from Avenue M to 25th Street
along Bluff Road in Apalachicola.
A quarter-mile of sidewalk will
be constructed from the Gulf Beach
Drive bike path to the fishing pier on
St. George Island using $214,000. A
1.4-mile stretch of sidewalk will also
be constructed from Franklin Boule-
vard to West Bayshore Drive on the
island.
Engineers will begin planning a
half-mile of sidewalk along Carrabelle
Beach next year, with construction of
the path, at a total cost of $500,000, will
take place in 2013.
Pierce said eight contractors have
requested bid packages for the proj-
ects. He said that, under the guide-
lines, no preference can be given to
local contractors. The work must be
awarded to the lowest bid.

"I think he (Tyre) has done an
outstanding job. Everything he's
done, he's done from the heart,"
said Sands. In a brief farewell

Law Enforcement


Tom McLaughlin
Florida Freedom Newspapers
PENSACOLA Teresa Ad-
ams, who helped former
Okaloosa County Sheriff
Charlie Morris steal thou-
sands of dollars in bonus
kickbacks, was sentenced
Friday to 36 months in fed-
eral prison.
Adams, Morris' ad-
ministrative director, was
also ordered to pay almost
$400,000 in restitution and
forfeitures, a cost she'll
share jointly and separate-
ly with her former boss.
A three-year supervised
probation will follow the
prison term.
The sentence was less
than the 47 to 57 months
recommended in a pre-
sentencing report.
U.S. District Judge Lac-
ey Collier said he departed
from the recommendation
because he believed Mor-
ris had coerced Adams into
joining him in the scheme.
"I believe his position
was highly influential in
your participation," Collier
told her.
He said he also found
it unlikely that Adams, 51,
would break the law again.
FBI agents arrested
Morris and Adams on Feb.
27. Morris was arrested in
Las Vegas, and Adams was
arrested at the Sheriff's
Office in Shalimar.
The FBI alleged in a
criminal complaint that


that she is an asset to the
community.
He said she spends
hours each week in a nurs-
ing home or hospice facil-
ity tending to her father,
her husband and other
residents.
"She's one of those
people who is a caregiver,"
he said. "That's something
the sheriff might have tak-
en advantage of. She's a
caring person."
Prosecuting attorney
Randall Hensel had rela-
tively little to say at the
sentencing. He did tell the
judge that Adams' care-
giving was "balanced by
the conduct she has en-
gaged in."
Collier granted Hensel's
request that Adams be re-
quired to pay $212,000 in
restitution and a separate
$194,002 in forfeitures.
Beroset said after the
hearing that he thought
Adams' sentence of a little
more than half as long as
Morris' 71-month prison
term handed down Aug. 11
was justified.
"Her role was signifi-
cantly different than the
sheriff's," he said. "She
didn't get the funds the
sheriff got."
Hensel had no comment
after the hearing.
Adams was ordered
to report by noon Nov. 2
to either the U.S. Mar-
shal's Office in Pensacola
or to the federal prison she


is assigned.
She said nothing as
she left the federal court-
house.
Beroset said he and his
client were grateful that
Collier had listened to his
pleas for leniency.
"The judge did consider
other mitigating factors
and went below the guide-
line sentence. We are hap-
py for that," he said.
Beroset asked Collier
to request that Adams be
sent to a prison in Marian-
na, relatively close to her
home in Niceville and her
father and husband.
Collier said he'd make
the request, but reminded
Beroset that his recom-
mendation carries no
weight with the Federal
Bureau of Prisons. Col-
lier said he requested that
Morris serve his sentence
at the prison at Saufley
Field near Pensacola, but
that the prison bureau as-
signed Morris to a prison
in Arkansas, where he
must report by Sept. 28.
Morris, Adams and
three former Sheriff's Of-
fice employees, James Da-
vid Yacks, Sandra Norris
and Chief Deputy Michael
Coup, still face state racke-
teering charges that carry
a maximum sentence of 30
years.
Sabra Thornton, Mor-
ris' former chief of staff,
has been charged with
grand theft.

Theresa Adams exits federal court after being sentenced.


they had worked together
to pull off a bonus kickback
scheme. Morris, through
Adams, handed out bonus-
es to employees and had a
portion of money returned
to him.
Adams worked with the
sheriff to make the plan
work and to conceal it, the
FBI said. She also received
bonuses and kicked back
funds to Morris.


She and Morris were
indicted in late April on
six felony charges. Morris
pleaded guilty May 19, and
Adams pleaded guilty May
22.
Before the sentencing,
Adam's attorney, Barry
Beroset, told Collier that
his client never received
some of the large bonuses
Morris handed out. She
also never got to keep a


significant portion of the
money she received, he
added.
Beroset estimated after
the hearing that Adams'
bonuses totaled less than
$15,000. She paid taxes on
the money and ended up
turning a lot of it back over
to the sheriff, he said.
Beroset, who requested
a probated sentence for
Adams, also told Collier

ice every week and put
it in sawdust. We made
ice cream every night in
summer and ate it on the
back porch," she said.
"We had horses. There
was a pair of pecan trees.
We kept chickens, turkeys
and hogs for food, and
there were milk cows
on the other end of the
island," Vause said.
She remembers some
of the exotic animals that
Pierce's father, Dr. Ray
Vaughn Pierce, imported
to the island.
"We had zebras. They
took them out and off the
island through our yard,"
she said. "My mother took
us inside so we wouldn't
watch. I was sick when
they took them away."
Trips to town were a
necessity for some things.
The family took a boat to
the mainland and went by
car from there.
"We'd go into town
to shop at Marks'
Wholesale," she said.
"We knew the Nashes,
who lived over at 14 Mile.
Daddy left his Model A at
their house. We'd come to
town in that."
"Mr. Homer Marks
(who owned the store)
and some of them use to
come over and stay with
us. They fixed the screen
porch up so they could
sleep in summer," she
said.
School was on the
mainland.
"For a while, my dad
took us to Ruth MacNeal.
She had a little school at
her house, and she taught
the turpentine people's
children," she said. "I
went four times (a week).
The school was behind
Jimmy MacNeal's store."
That store is now the
Indian Pass Raw Bar.

The Great Andros
ISland Hurricane
Days were not always
sunny on the island. The
Pierces were living on
St. Vincent in 1929, the
year the Great Andros
Island Hurricane made
landfall in the Panhandle
as a tropical storm after
devastating Miami.
"We couldn't get out of
thw waa. ne ,id 'tc s
we didn't have a radio or


all the way to our porch.
The water came and beat
on the porch. Mama had
us cuddle up in the big
double fireplace at the
center of the house. You
know how kids are. We
weren't too afraid, and my
parents weren't scared.


They'd been through
storms before.
"My dad pulled a boat
up next to the house so
we could go to the hills
if we had to. My brother
was in St. Joe with Uncle
Dan, and we were afraid
for him because we were
afraid the town had been
wiped out," she said.
"All our boats went
down the bay. My father
gave the Lindbergh to the
man who found it over in
the Miles. Someone came
and got us in a boat, and
we went to town until
everything dried out,"
she said. "We lost most of
our pictures in the storm.
There were 4 inches of
mud behind the house,
and a lot of the animals on
the island were killed.
"After that, my mom
wanted to leave," Vause
said. "She was trying to
raise young'uns, and she
didn't want to stay there
after the storm."
On another occasion,
the little family barely
escaped a tragedy.
"Somebody like to
killed my dad. They were
hunting, and he caught
them with a deer, and
they hit him with an oar,"
she said. "They busted
his head. He had a silver
plate put in his head
by Dr. Center and Dr.
Moreau. He saved himself
by swimming under the
boat."
Vause's dad had
recognized the men
as residents of the
Montgomery House in
Apalachicola. They were
apprehended and taken to
Pensacola to be tried.
Vause's family stayed
on the island until she
was about 12, in 1930 or
'31, when they moved to
her father's hometown of
Gulf r id the family
didn't like it there and
moved back to Franklin
County in a few years,
staying at the Fuller Hotel
until they could find a
house.
Eventually they moved
to Big Bayou. Later
Carolyn Cameron married
Percy Vause, a machinist
at the St. Joe Mill, and
they lived in Apalachicola.

Satlie J


Vau 's tory fil ein
a missing piece in the
history of the Sadie J,
the first motorized
boat on the bay, built
by hotel owner Spartan
Jenkins, an early African-
American entrepreneur.
Jenkins used it as
an excursion craft


and later rented it
to developer William
Popham. After being
damaged in a storm, the
boat was purchased by
a group of Apalachicola
businessmen, Vito
Sangaree, Kine Huffman
and Bunks Porter, who
used it for outings up the
river and to the islands.
The boat's fate after it left
their hands was shrouded
until Vause cleared up the
mystery.
"I bought the Sadie
J," Vause said. "When I
bought it, my husband
came home from work
and I told him I'd bought
a boat, and he said, 'What
for?' My husband and I
used to use it to stay in
when we went hunting up
the river.
"Eventually we had
to move it because we
had no place to keep
it," she said. "I sold it


to Joe Taranto, and he
converted it to a shrimp
boat. He took it to New
Orleans, where they hit a
big barge and it ran up on
the levee. The city sent
me a bill for over $1,000
for moving it because Joe
Taranto didn't change the
title at the custom house.
When I took him the bill,
he went running to the
custom house to change
it, but I told him 'Don't
run now.' "
Vause visited St.
Vincent recently and said
she was disappointed in
what she saw.
"I went over there
three years ago with
my grandbaby, Whitney
Vause. It's not St. Vincent
Island like it was.
"I loved St. Vincent
better than anyplace I
ever lived," she said. "I
would move back there
tomorrow if I could."

potions. Among his
medical publications was
"The abuse of the male
reproductive organs and
diseases to which it gives
rise."
Valentine Mott Pierce
was heir to his father's

Ednustel at uanrv in
1888, and graduating from
the University of Buffalo
Medical School in 1891,
he was a Republican, a
Mason and a prominent
member of the Hasty
Pudding Club and the
Harvard Club of New York
City, where he hobnobbed
with J. Pierpont Morgan,
Pierce was a mover and
shaker in the presidential
campaigns for both
William McKinley and
Theodore Roosevelt.
He was an early
campaigner against,
and is said to have been
the most aggressive
opponent of government
regulation of the content
of food and drugs. Not
surprising given that the
foundation of his massive
fortune was proprietary
medicines, a euphemism
for "snake oil."
VM. Pierce fought
valiantly against the
1906 enactment of the
Pure Food and Drug Act,
the first attempt by the


federal government to
assure quality control in
food and medications.
Opponents of the act
argued that standardizing
labeling and advertising
of consumables under
federal law would

br en gm, and that
the standards would be
subject to change with
each new administration.
The regulation of
patent medicines and
packaged food became a
states rights issue, with
opponents arguing states
were capable of punishing
their own "common
cheats and swindlers."
VM. Pierce was also
famous for an advertising
campaign in which the
image of American
Indians was displayed on
thousands of barns across
the U.S.
In addition to his
medical empire, which
extended to Great Britain,
VM. Pierce was president
of the Pierce Glassworks
of Pittsburgh, the Charter
Bond Company of New
York, and the Pierce Coal
and Lumber Company of
Jackson County, Alabama.
He and his wife, Louise,
were frequent visitors to
St. Vincent Island, which
they owned.

Local


All roads lead to the
river.
That's one of the many
themes of North Florida
author, Mlichael Lister's
new literary thriller, "Dou-
ble Exposure," so it's fitting
that he's bringing a sign-
ing event to the place that
is the culmination of the
Apalachicola River, one of
the main characters in the
book.
On Saturday, Oct. 3,
from 1 to 3 p.m., Lister will
be signing "Double Expo-
sure," on the porch of the
Apalachicola RiverKeeper,
232 Water Street, as well
as exhibiting photography
from area river swamps
where the book is set.
This event is co-spon-
sored by Downtown Books
and The Apalachicola
RiverKeeper.
In addition to writing
"Double Exposure" as a
literary love letter to this
area, Lister is donating all
the profits from his new
novel to environmental pro-
tection, conservation, and
education right here in Gulf
and Franklin counties.
"This book is a gift,"
Lister said. "Well, I guess
they all are, but there's
something special about
this one. It's a literary love
letter to this area I so love."
The area is the Apala-
chicola River basin. "Dou-
ble Exposure" is set deep
in the dangerous river
swamps. It's a suspenseful
tale of life and death sur-
vival.
"In the book, a wildlife
photographer, Remington
James, is struggling to
survive and the odds are
against him. I see the river
system the same way -
fighting to survive, and I'm
trying to do my small part
to make sure it does," said
Lister.
In "Double Exposure,"
one fateful fall evening, as
the sun sinks and the dark-
ness expands, James ven-
tures deep into the river
swamp to try out some new
equipment and check his
camera traps.
While checking his cam-
era traps, scanning the ee-
rie images of overexposed


deer and bats and foxes,
James comes across the
most haunting images of
his life, the fr~ame-by-frame
capture of a shocking
crime.
By exposing the crimi-
nal, James has exposed
himself to danger, even pos-
sible extinction. Hunted like
an animal, by the predator
and his psychotic friends,
James must do two things
-make it through the night
and make it to the river -
and the odds of doing either
are slim to none.
Lyrical, literary, and
told in poetic photographic
impressions, "Double Ex-
posure" is filled with far
more than just exciting ad-
venture and suspense. It's
a contemplation of life and
death and art and meaning
you won't soon forget.
"I'm so proud of this
book," Lister said. "And it
feels so good to bring some
attention to the river and
the swamps and the endan-
gered species of vanishing
Florida. Nothing feels bet-
ter than giving-and to give
my very best in this novel,
then give the profits from it
to help protect the land and
animals it honors ... it's in-
describable." .
The idea to give away his
proceeds for "Double Ex-
posure" came to Lister this
past holiday season, when
because of tough economic
times so many people were
struggling to buy gifts, he
decided to give away over
1,000 copies of his novels.
"It was one of the very
best experiences of my
writing career so far,"
Lister said. "The response
was stunning. The books
went so fast and then I
started getting emails and
thank-you notes. They were
so complimentary of the
books, but also they were
so moved that it had been a
gift. It felt so amazing that
I knew for the rest of my
life, I would look for ways to
give back using the gift of
writing.
"Donating the profits
from "Double Exposure"
toward protecting the land
and animals it celebrates
is a very small thing to do,


but it's a place to start, and
my hope is that it'll do some
lasting good," he said.
"Double Exposure"
will be published by Ty~rus


Books in September. For
