YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER FOR MORE THAN 120 YEARS


VOL. 124 ISSUE 26


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
The Franklin County School
Board has agreed to broaden the
definition of school uniforms be-
yond the school-issued shirts to
allow for other varieties that stay
within the Seahawks' color and
theme.
In addition, they set in motion
a revamping of the district's policy
regarding students' use of laptop
computers so as to allow them to
use the devices at school.
By a unanimous vote Oct. 15,
the school board agreed to recom-


mendations from Franklin County
School Principal George Oehlert
regarding the policies.
Oehlert asked that students be
allowed to wear any of a growing
number of shirts and sweatshirts,
sold by the Athletic Boosters as
well as at area stores, that sport
lettering and logos emblematic of
the Franklin County Seahawks.
Oehlert said the recommenda-
tion stemmed from school officials'
frustration at having to look past
the wearing of Seahawk-themed
shirts that were technically in vio-
lation of the rules.
"Anytime we don't enforce a


policy, we change a policy," he
said. "It's a matter of what battle
should we fight."
Oehlert said he wanted a policy
change that would allow students
to wear any shirt that features
Franklin County and/or Seahawks,
provided it had not been altered.
Board member Carl Whaley
worked into the motion that the al-
lowable colors for the shirts, for all
but the pre-kindergartners, would
remain gray, black, white and
crimson, and that tank tops would
not be allowed.
"Give a little, take a little,"
Whaley said.


Although he voted in favor of
the change, which now must be
given a public hearing in which
parents may comment before the
board, board member David Hin-
ton voiced some reluctance to em-
brace the idea.
"I'm a little apprehensive about
your thoughts," he told Oehlert.
"I'm a little concerned we might
start getting away from our uni-
forms."
In revising its approach to lap-
top computers, the school board
stopped short of a sweeping policy
change, which would have called
for a public hearing, and instead


granted Oehlert the latitude to in-
terpret the current policy so as to
allow laptops.
The current rules appear to
ban laptop computers, although
board members agreed that the
wording restricting "electronic
devices" should be limited to re-
ferring primarily to electronic
communication devices, such as
cellular telephones.
"We are in a technological age,
and the students are very savy,"
Oehlert said.
He noted that the idea to open

Whenever someone in Alligator
Point needed help, A.J. Thompson
was there.
Just after midnight, on Monday
morning, John Murphy and fellow
firefighters on the Alligator Point
and Lanark Village fire departments
tried desperately to return the favor.
Murphy and his wife were on an
early start to catch a flight out of
Jacksonville when they drove by
593 Pine St., where A.J. and his wife,
Joyce, had lived for many years, both
mainstays of the community.
Smoke was pouring from the sin-
gle-wide mobile home, and the Mur-
phys went to investigate.


"John said the smoke was com-
ing out of the house so thick he could
not get to the door," said Steve Fling,
chief of the Alligator Point depart-
ment.
Murphy called the fire depart-
ment, and 911 at about 12:16 a.m.
It took about 12 minutes for the
five Alligator Point firefighters to
arrive on the scene with their truck
and attack the blaze with two lines.
"It was fully involved. It was com-
pletely ablaze," Fling said. "It had al-
ready reached its max and was start-
ing to come back down. It took less
than 10 minutes to knock it down."
Firefighters and First Respond-
ers discovered two bodies inside

Franklin County


unemployment

stays flat at

7.1 percent

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
For the third consecutive month, Franklin
County's unemployment rate remained just
above the 7 percent mark in September.
According to preliminary labor market sta-
tistics released Friday by the Florida Agency
for Workforce Innovation, the county's overall
jobless rate was at 7.1 percent in September,
as 331 people out of a labor force of 4,670 were
without work.
The jobless rate in August was about the
same, at 7.2 percent, with 343 people looking for
employment out of a larger labor force of 4,797.
The jobless rate in July also stood at 7.1 per-
cent, with 346 people looking for employment
out of an even larger labor force of 4,874.
One year ago, Franklin's workforce had 200
more workers than it does today, with a labor
force of 4,872, and its jobless rate was much
lower, at 4.6 percent, with only 224 jobless.
Franklin's September numbers tied it with
Alachua County for fourth best in the state, be-
hind Liberty County, at 5.3 percent; Walton, at
6.8 percent; and Monroe, at 7.0 percent. Many
of the counties with the lowest unemployment
rates were those with relatively high propor-
tions of government employment.
The state's seasonally adjusted unemploy-
ment rate for September was 11.0 percent,
which represents 1.01 million jobless out of a
labor force of 9.19 million. The unemployment
rate is up 0.2 percentage point from the revised
August rate of 10.8 percent and is up 4.3 per-
centage points from one year ago.
The state's current unemployment rate is
1.2 percentage points higher than the national
unemployment rate of 9.8 percent. The last
time Florida's unemployment rate was as high
as the September rate was October 1975, when
the rate was also 11.0 percent.
The state has lost 360,400 non-agriculture
jobs over the last year, about 4.7 percent, which
is steeper than the national rate of decline of
4.2 percent over the year. September job losses
continue the trend of annual declines that be-
gan in August 2007.
Industries losing the most jobs were trade,
transportation and utilities; professional and
business services; and construction. These
three industries account for more than two-
thirds of the job losses in the state.
Private education and health services
(+6,600 jobs, +0.6 percent) is the only sector
alining jobs amon sFdlurida'ls mlajhor industries.
cial assistance (+9,800 jobs,+1.1 percent), pri-
marily in nursing and residential care facilities.
Private education declined by 3,200 jobs (-2.3
percent) over the year.
"We remain committed to serving unem-
ployed workers and providing them with job
placement and training services to support
rapid reemployment and help reinvigorate
the economy," said Agency for Workforce In-
novation Director Cynthia R. Lorenzo. "The
rcovery ismcoming slowy but it is coi Te
economic downturn continues to impact a sig-
nificant number of Floridians and businesses.
However, a reduction in employers announcing
closings or large-scale layoffs is a positive sign
of Florida's growing economic stability."

Oyster pathog en test may
help ma ke shellfish safer
By Stu Hutson
Special to the Times
The oyster lover's axiom of edibility that
this shellfish is safest to eat in any month with
an "r" in it may soon become somewhat of
a culinary anachronism, thanks to a new food-
safety test developed with help from the Uni-

vey ters or typically considered safest
to eat in cooler months (September through
April) because the shellfish-infecting bacteria
in the genus Vibrio flourish best in warm tem-
peratures.

Larry Hale and Troop 22 of
St. George hosted a Campo-
ree Saturday.
More than 175 people, 125
of them Boy Scouts, attended
the Camporee at Dr. Julian
Bruce St. George Island
State Park last weekend. This
year's camping event cel-
ebrated 99 years of scouting
in the U.S.
Boy Scouts and Venture
Scouts, boys and girls ages
16 to 21, enjoyed recreation,
educational activities and
the great outdoors during an
overnight get-together that
was part of a nationwide cele-
bration by thousands ofyoung
people from coast to coast.
Troops dabbled in radiog-
raphy, ecology, music and out-
door skills. The weather was
perfect, if a little cool.
"It was a lot of fun," said
Hale. "I know the kids re-
ally had a good time, and they
learned a lot about environ-
mental science. They learned
about the bay and the vegeta-
tion found on the island. All
of the instructors were very
complimentary about how po-
lite the kids were and how in-
terested in the environment."
The Apalachicola Es-
tuarine Research Reserve,
Florida State Parks and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission all
provided environmental men-
tors to the Scouts.
Hale said an American flag
that flew over the event was
sent to him from Baghdad by
civilian contractor and former
soldier Rob Robinson.
"I thought that was really
neat," said Hale.


Mark Snyder, executive
officer for the Aucilla River
Scouting District, said he
was impressed by the Scouts.
"The kids set up camp at night
in the pitch dark," he said.
He also praised Hale and
Troop 22 for their enthusiasm
and hospitality in hosting the
Camporee.
Snyder was on hand to
judge the theme competi-
tion. During the Camporee,
each troop sets up a display
in their campsite dealing with
some aspect of outdoor life.
One group of Scouts built a
watchtower; Troop 22 had a
cast netting demonstration.
Winners of the display
competition were Troop 319
from Thomasville for their
watchtower. Second place
went to Troop 117 of Tallahas-
see for their Pirates of the Ca-
ribbean display, and Tallahas-
see Troop 10 took third place
for their Beach Ball montage.
Winners of the fishing
tournament were Andrew
Stahl with a whiting and Da-
vid Huneide and Rhett Ruth-
erford with flounder. Stahl
and Huneide are from Tal-
lahassee; Rutherford is from
Thomasville.
The Troop 22 Venture
Scouts triumphed over the
Tallahassee Boy Scouts in the
wood chopping contest. Hale
said kayaking and sailing
were cancelled due to inclem-
ent weather.
Because next year will
be the 100th anniversary of
Scouting in North America,
Hale wants to plan something
special. He said he was con-
sidering a larger gathering
at the Wright's Lake Camp-
ground in Tate's Hell State
Forest.

A giant turtle appeared in an Apalachicola neighbor-
hood last week.
Paul Pfluger, of Apalachicola, received a shock on
Monday evening, Oct. 12 when he returned home to 564
Brownsville Road. As he pulled into the driveway, he
could make out a form at the corner of a shed next to a
small pond filled with fish.
On drawing closer, he discovered an enormous alliga-
tor snapping turtle. At first, he thought the animal was
dead, but a poke to the tail with a stick aroused the ani-
mal from its slumber.
Pfluger constructed a pen around the animal and
called the Apalachicola National Estuarine Reserve
(ANERR) to see if they wanted the turtle for a display.
ANERR passed on the offer and said the turtle was too
big for them to house.
Pfluger believed the turtle weighs in at 80 to 100
pounds.
Now Pfluger is trying to find someone who will trans-
port the animal. He doesn't want the turtle harmed. He
believes the turtle might have been seeking a mate when
it sallied forth from the depths of its watery lair.
"I can't let it go back into the pond," he said. "I'm miss-
ing a duck and three cats."

.Imagine this: a
picture-perfect family
in the early '60s is
having a picnic. The
mom and dad are
relaxing on a blanket
while their two young
children are playing on
the grass. The detritus
of lunch surrounds the
couple. When it is time
to go, they pack up the
leftovers, then stand,
lift the blanket and give
it a good shake. Bread
crusts, paper cups,
napkins and plates fall
to the ground. Mom
folds the blanket; the
family loads up in their
late-model car and
drives away.
This image from the
AMC television series
"Mad Men" is burned
into my brain. The Don Drap~
family was not evil; it episode "S
just never occurred to
them to clean up the
environment after they rshd
it. It was a deserted area, and the
garbage would simply be scattered
by the weather.
I started thinking
about the birth
of environmental
S awareness for
regular folks. I
recalled the "Don't
Be a Litterbug" ad
A ~campaigns of the
RED WHITE '60s. One television
AND ROUX public service
Denise Roux announcement
featured a Native
American man in full Indian
dress walking across a landscape
covered with blowing trash. At
the end of the spot, he turned and
faced the camera as a tear trickled
down his cheek. I think that iconic
image was one of the reasons
many people started picking up
after themselves.
States passed anti-littering laws
with hefty fines for violations. We
pocketed that gum wrapper instead
of tossing it on the ground. Soda
cans, potato chip bags and candy
bar wrappers started going back
into the boat instead of being tossed

educated. We learned fairly quickly,
though. Today, only the most

thuggish and ignorant will make a
mess in nature. I know those people
still exist, but most of us find their
actions appalling.
"Mad Men" employs painstaking
detail to chronicle the '60s era in
the context of a big city advertising
agency. The sets, the clothes and
the attitudes all ring true with an
almost frightening accuracy. The
writing and acting is exquisite.
In "Mad Men," smokers rule.
There is no stigma at all. Cigarettes
are commonplace in business
meetings, airplanes, restaurants
and in everyone's home. As folks of
a certain age, some of us remember
when every house featured large
decorative ash trays in keeping
with the color scheme of the living
room. Mama had a huge turquoise
number prominently featured
on the coffee table. Doctor's
waiting rooms had standing
ash receptacles, and it was not
uncommon for a physician to smoke
during an office consultation. As
late as the '70s, it was perfectly fine
to smoke during class at college; I
did it.
I guess the people with asthma
and allergies just suffered quietly
back then. There was little
awareness of the dangers of
secondhand smoke. Once again,
the public simply needed to be
educated about how their actions
affected the lives of others. Now, it


is even illegal to smoke in public
outdoor parks in San Francisco.
"Mad Men" also started me
thinking about the changing work
environment for women. As late as
the '60s, most professional females
were secretaries or teachers.
You may disagree, but I think we
boomers were the last to get a real
quality education. The smartest
and brightest women were in the
classroom in those days. Once
opportunities in medicine, law,
science and corporate America
started opening up, they fled
education for fields where they
could compete for a man's salary
and professional respect.
Today, there are more women
in law school than men. However,
I still don't see too many women
getting Wall Street bonuses. But
hey, my doctor is a woman and so is
the Secretary of State.
We often bathe the recent past
in rosy colors, and I am frequently
guilty of wallowing in nostalgia. It
was not all good back then. It is not
all better now.
We have proven ourselves
quick learners. All it takes is good
educators.

Sdiool busing decision unfair to parent
This is in regards to last week's letter to the editor
headlined "Shared parenting complicates busing
decisions."
I, too, am a parent that shares joint custody of my
son. He is currently in middle school. My ex and I have
shared custody for the last five years, and for four of
those years, we have not had an issue. The school
system has never had a problem, in the last four years,
with a schedule in which one week the child is picked
up and dropped off at his dad's and the following week
the child would be dropped off and picked up at my
house at the school bus stop every morning and every
afternoon.
But this year, the school decides to drop my son
off somewhere and not notify me of where they were
dropping him off. So basically no one bothered to
let me know about the decision that the school bus
transportation had made about my son until he is
calling me from an undisclosed location. My child also
informed me that he would not be allowed to get off
with his younger brother, my pre-Kindergarten son
from my second marriage, at the designated bus stop.
So then I decided to see if he could get dropped
off at the local Boys & Girls Club Carrabelle site, and
once again the school system denied that right to my
son and me. I called the school transportation office
and spoke with Mr. Coursey and quickly became
embarrassed by how he talked to me. He told me that
this is the way it is. That in no terms was the school
bus dropping my son off at the Boys & Girls Club, and,
furthermore, they would not be letting him get off of
the bus at the same stop that they had been letting my
son off for the past four years. Mr. Coursey continued
to inform me that it was not up for discussion. This
conversation was then promptly ended by him hanging
the phone up on me.
So I went to the school board meeting and explained
about how the situation seemed not fair. I was met
with an apathetic response. The board members told
me that they would look into the situation and give me
an answer within two weeks. Unfortunately, I never
received a call within those two weeks.
So in short, I understand exactly what "some"
parents are going through. When a judge decides
that a set of parents should have split or joint custody,
that parent should not have to go back through the
expenses of court just to uphold the ruling.

Schools should not disregard judge's decision
In response to last week's letter to the editor
"Shared parenting complicates busing decisions," I
actually have two comments.
First: Since when can one parent give orders
to the other parent? If you are divorced and each
parent has 50/50 custodial rights to a child, then
where does the father get off giving orders to the
mother?
Second: Did "WE" really elect such a person as
Nina Marks as a Superintendent of Schools?
I find myself in awe at how the school system
can completely overlook and disregard the judicial
system. Since when can the school dictate which
parent a student will be released to if both parents
have 50/50 custody rights? The last time I checked,
it is unlawful for a school to keep a parent "in the
dark" about a student no matter who has custody.
Since when do the superintendent and the
director of transportation dictate where a child will
he dropped off after school? Who gives them the
right to choose which parent the child will be going
to in the afternoons when there is 50/50 custody? Is
a child not allowed to be dropped off with a friend if
they have a note from the parent giving permission
for the transportation?
I remember riding the bus when I was in school,
and my friends would often have notes from their
parents giving permission for them to ride the bus
with me. Have times changed so much that a child
can not be bused to one parent's house one week and
the other parent's house the next week?
I have a nephew starting school next year. It
upsets me greatly to think of how he will be treated
by "the powers that be" in the school system when
they discriminate a child for whom his parents are.
The superintendent is an elected public office. As
such, when a parent has concerns about the well-
being of a child, that elected public official should be
attentive to those concerns. Instead of setting a time
to talk with a concerned parent, Nina Marks has her
secretary send out a memorandum for a workshop
about transportation issues.
What is Nina Marks going to do when a real issue
arises with education? She can't handle a little issue
with transportation.
Apparently Pamela Smith is not the only parent
with these issues.

OUR VIEW




Sunshine state

The brouhaha over requested public records thathbroke
out at a recent county commission meeting is something
from which commissioners can take a lesson.
In Florida, there is this pesky thing known as Statute
119 that mandates open government meetings and
records. The language has been law for years, though
state lawmakers make an annual run at opening whatever
loopholes they can. Still, the state lives by and prides
itself on a set of laws that became a model for much of the
country.
Government meetings are intended for public
consumption. Let the sunshine in. Governmental records,
or at least most, are public records. Let the sunshine in.
That's how it is done in Florida and has been for years.
Government is supposed to be a public service; what is
government's is the public's.
So to see Commissioner Pinki Jackel express open
hostility and condescension in a public meeting toward an
individual who made a recent public records request for
correspondence from the commissioners was unsettling.
The tussle going on, internally and externally, among
the seafood workers and the association advocating for
them is messy and has as many sides as there are voices
in the melee.
Accusations have been tossed like verbal hand
grenades, and there has been upheaval in the
organizational structure of the association.
The commissioner in question might also have a
personal ax to grind with the individual who filed the public
records request, or maybe she finds this individual not
very likeable.
Who knows because none of it matters one whit.
A person from the public sector can request at their
pleasure any public record. If the governmental entity
in this case the county, believes it is not public record,
officials can cite that provision in the law in their denial of
the request.
But other than that, government must comply and
there needn't be provided a reason or rationale behind the
request. The county in this case has to simply meet the
request in a timely manner.
That time frame is pretty well-mapped out in the
manual for Government in the Sunshine.
Government is free to charge a reasonable rate if
copying or what have you is done, reasonable costs having
pretty much been settled through the years in Attorney
General opinions on questions from local governments.
That is about it, though. The records are public; the
public is entitled to review them if desired. ..
Government has no right or standing to ask anything in
return but reimbursement. Place it under the umbrella of
public service.

e-mal Ide inteblicu doa n. That icu ens e indng
concerning business before the county or involving public
money that originate on a computer at home, work or play.
An elected official can not cherry pick what
correspondence or e-mail to turn over; they can not delete
things they don't want others to see.
Once you're an elected official, a significant part of your
life is open to constituents, whether they voted for you or
not. It is part of the trade-off of public service, which is, as
we remind and remind in this space, what government is
supposed to be about.
But even when, as was clearly the case, commissioners
have a bee in their bonnet about a particular public records
request, it is hardly appropriate to take up the request,
by chance of the individual addressing the board on a
different matter, in a public setting.
A commissioner effectively acted like a bully bent on
disparaging or embarrassing the individual who made
the public records request. She was rude, undignified
defensive and wasted public time and dollars (convening a
meeting isn't free) on a personal disagreement.
Somebody who believed there surely couldn'thbe
anything to hide could easily have come away from that
meeting feeling like that commissioner definitely had
something to hide.
And it was all so unnecessary
Commissioners take an oath of office upon election.
They swear to uphold the laws of the state. The so-called
Sunshine Laws are among those.
There is even a manual written about the Sunshine
Laws. Understanding them could not be easier.
But there are clearly commissioners, in this county and
elsewhere, who could use a refresher course on their role
as public servants in Florida.

Even in the "r" months, slurp-
ing an oyster opens some people
to infection from these bacteria,
which can cause fever, nausea,
abdominal pain and diarrhea, and
has even led to finger amputation
when it's given a chance to pen-
etrate a cut or skin lesion.
However, a new quick and inex-
pensive diagnostic test developed
by DuPont Qualicon and refined
by UF's Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Sciences could make
weeding out pathogen-loaded
oysters much more practical and
efficient. Oysters are a $14 million
industry in the Sunshine State, ac-
cording to the Department of Agri-


culture and Consumer Services.
The test is based on a technol-
ogy dubbed "quantitative poly-
merase chain reaction," or QPCR
diagnostics. Given a small sam-
pling of oyster, shrimp or ahi tuna,
the system tracks genetic mate-
rial found in three harmful species
of Vibrio by amplifying their DNA
into large amounts that are easily
detected.
This is the first time this tech-
nology could be used in detecting
pathogens in seafood on an indus-
trial scale. So after initially devel-
oping the basic lab-bench test,
DuPont turned to UF to prepare
it for commercial use and regula-


tory approval.
"Whether you have raw oys-
ters or if you're trying to validate
some sort of treatment method,
the old way of testing these bacte-
ria in oysters just isn't very prac-
tical because it's pricey and takes
about a week," said Anita Wright, a
UF food science professor whose
Florida Sea Grant work is validat-
ing and expanding applications of
the new test for seafood process-
ing and research purposes.
This USDA-funded research
evaluates treatments such as
freezing, high pressure, irradia-
tion, or mild heating, and is funded
by the Florida Gulf Coast Oyster


Industry Council.
Wright was to present findings
from her work at the Oct. 17-23
biennial meeting of the Interstate
Shellfish Sanitation Conference,
followed by a workshop to demon-
strate the methodology. Her find-
ings will also be published in the
next issue of the American Orga-
nization of Analytical Chemists.
The ISSC is a shellfish regula-
tory cooperation that will deter-
mine whether the test is reliable
enough to be used industrywide.
If approved, the test could be an
especially big boon for oyster har-
vesters in the Gulf of Mexico, the
source of a third of all U.S. oysters.


Warmer water temperatures
and factors such as pollution
make Vibrio species a major con-
cern for Gulf-harvested shellfish.
Forty percent or more of Gulf oys-
ters carry these pathogens in the
"non-r" months, according to the
FDA.
A member of the Association
of American Universities, UF
receives more than $550 million
annually in sponsored research
fu~nding. Through its research
and other activities, UF contrib-
utes more than $6 billion a year to
Florida's economy and is respon-
sible for generating more than
77,000 jobs statewide.


the door to laptop comput-
ers came out of the School
Advisory Committee, which
viewed it as an enhanced
way to take notes, review as-
signments and glean infor-
mation from the Internet.
In specifying the revised
laptop rules, Oehlert was
asked by the board to en-
sure that school officials
retain the ability to restrict
laptop use within the school,
and make clear that they
are not responsible for lost
or stolen laptops.
David Meyer, the dis-
trict's information technol-
ogy guru, reassured the
board that the school's wire-
less network will continue to
require an encryption code
for access and that it "can
not be cracked" by students.
School officials still must
work out the manner in
which students will be able
to obtain such codes in or-
der to use their computers.
Board members ad-
dressed a number of other
items at the meeting, in-
cluding the approval in the
2009-10 fiscal year to once
again share 5 percent of
the district's capital outlay
funds with the Apalachicola
Bay Charter School.
By unanimous vote, the
board agreed to a second
year of the revenue shar-
ing, which in his letter to the
school board, ABC Principal
Don Hungerford said last
year brought in $216,000,
used in renovating the for-
mer Chapman Elementary
School. Hungerford wrote
that he expected the rev-


enue sharing plan to bring
in about $136,000 this year to
the ABC School.
In personnel matters, the
board accepted the resigna-
tion of high school Spanish
teacher Jay Adams-Feuer,
newly hired before the start
of the school year, who de-
cided to step down because
of a disability. The board
agreed to release Adams-
Feuer from his contract and
will use substitute teachers,
including guidance coun-
selor Diane McGrath, who
is certified in Spanish, to
handle the workload.
The board also rehired
retired high school teacher
Marilyn Reynolds to teach an
intensive middle school read-
ing and language course. The
additional hiring became
necessary after the number
of students in the course ex-
ceeded class size limits.
The board also hired Jen-
nifer Edwards, in a non-in-
structional capacity, to over-
see a program working with
students for whom English
is a second language. Oe-
hlert said Edwards will work
with the growing number of
students and their families
whose native language is
Spanish.
In perhaps the most in-
fluential of the personnel
matters, the board accepted
the retirement of Sam Carn-
ley, the district's director of
financial services, who an-
nounced plans to step down
Jan. 31, 2010.
"I have reached the age
at which the rigors of the
work weigh heavily on me,


and l feel the need to lighten
my burden somewhat," he
wrote. "Even though I re-
gret leaving, Ilook forward
to a new phase of life filled
with a little less stress and a
little more relaxation."
Carnley wrote that his
time with the Franklin
County Schools, which fol-
lowed the completion of an
earlier career in Liberty
County, "has been the most
enjoyable time of my work-
ing life. My fellow employ-
ees have been more than
just co-workers. They have
become friends whom I
will always remember with
much fondness."
One financial matter that
the board agreed to con-
sider in the future was the
possibility of levying a sales
tax to offset some of the tax
burden on local property
owners.
"It's always been a con-
cern of mine about property
taxes being too high," said
Hinton, in offering a propos-
al to have school officials,
together with school board
attorney Barbara Sanders,
investigate "all the steps
and procedures required"
in placing such a sales tax
option before voters.
"After we answer these
questions, we may not want
to do it," Hinton stressed.
"But we ought to investigate
the possibility of a referen-
dum for schools of a sales
tax to replace a portion of
our property tax."
The school board agreed
to Hinton's motion without
comment


the charred remains of the
premises, A.J., 80, and his
wife, Joyce, 71.
No one had to wonder
who the couple were.
A.J. had remained ac-
tive even after turning 80,
running a wrecker service,
working as a mechanic on
people's cars, doing tractor
work, operating a small well
drilling rig.
"If you were stuck, if you
needed a jump you called
A.J.," said Fling. "He was al-
ways there to lend a helping
hand. The man would have
given the shirt off his back
for you, very low-key, very
unassuming, quiet."
Fling's friendship with
A.J. dated back about 25
years, when their paths first
crossed, also in a dire situ-
ation.
When Fling began as fire
chief in 1984, he first met
A.J., who worked as a me-
chanic on the department's
equipment.
"Around 1985 or '86,
it wasn't long after the
First Responder program
started, I got a call from
the sheriff's office at 1 or
2 a.m. in the morning," he
recalled. "A lady had called,
and someone was scream-
ing for help in the Pine
Street area. They didn't
have a deputy close by, and


I went and listened."
A large, lanky man, A.J.
had been rebuilding an en-
gine when he humped the
starter, and it had caught
his arm and taken his fin-
gers off.
Fling grabbed a ham-
mer and chisel and got the
hand out from where it was
caught in the engine, and
the severed fingers.
"It was cold that night
and we wrapped the fin-
gers," he said.
As luck would have it,
a plastic surgeon was on
hand at the Tallahassee Me-
morial Hospital emergency
room, and he was able to
re attach the fingers.
"That was probably my
first experience with A.J.,"
Fling said.
The fire chief said neigh-
hors spoke of hearing an
explosion Monday morning
after the fire was spotted,
which is a typical scenario
in such cases.
"A lot of times, a small
fire in the house will con-
sume the oxygen," he said.
"It builds heat up and will
finally blow a window out.
When fire gets that addi-
tional oxygen, it basically
explodes."
Capt. Joe Steadman, with
the state fire marshal's of-
fice, said "there was nothing


to indicate criminal activ-
ity" but would not comment
before the investigation is
complete on what may have
started the fire.
"I didn't see anything ob-
vious as to what might have
started it," said Fling, who
accompanied investigators
on their examination of the
destroyed house.
One neighbor said A.J.
once told her that he had
modified an old modular
school classroom into a liv-
ing area and added a wood-
en porch to the front.
The fire also did minor
damage to a neighbor's
home to the north, when
the intense heat melted vi-
nyl siding and an adjoining
fence.
In addition to the four
Lanark Village firefighters,
who brought their truck,
also responding to the blaze
were sheriff's deputies, Car-
rabelle police, the state fire
marshal's office and foren-
sic investigators with the
state Department of Law
Enforcement.
Two dogs, a pit bull and
a small hound, also died in
the blaze.
"You never saw him go-
ing down the road where
there wasn't a dog sitting up
on the front seat with him,"
Fling said.

Special to the Times

As Apalachicola Mu-
nicipal Library staff, Car-
rie Kienzle and I, had the
opportunity the week of
Oct. 5, to attend the State
Library and Archives' An-
nual Statewide Library
Director's Meeting in Tal-
lahassee.
In addition, as a new
library director, I went to
a daylong orientation on
Oct. 7. That day included
tours of the State Library,
which functions as a huge
resource for legislators, as
well as the public. Their
collections include books,
flags, reference sections on
Florida and federal docu-
ments, an extensive his-
torical Florida collection,
films, videos and more.
(Visit http://dlis.dos.state.
fl.us)
The tour continued in
the State Archives, which
hold many rare and antique
items, including books,


but also manuscripts and
photographic material.
For example, the Florida
Electronic Library (http://
www.flelibrary.org) and the
Florida Memory Collection
(http://www.floridamemo-
ry~com) include the Florida
Photographic Collection,
highlights of Florida Histo-
ry and an Interactive Tour
of Florida History. These
are all real gems and can
be accessed through your
home computer or the pub-
lic access computers here
in the Library.
Being able to meet and
get to know staff from the
State Library will be very
helpful for this library in
many areas, especially in
applying for state funding.
The Apalachicola Munici-
pal Library is currently in
line for state funding for
construction funds, but be-
cause of the shrinking state
budget, this program has
not been funded lately, and
there is no real hope that
the funding will be reinstat-


meeting has 350 employ-
ees and 17 branches, wow!
Makes us feel like an oyster
spat but spat grow!
Other systems were
interesting because of
who bands together in a
consortium. The Franklin
County Public Library in
Eastpoint and Carrabelle
is a member of Wilderness
Coast, which also includes
libraries in Wakulla and
Jefferson counties. The
Apalachicola Municipal
Library is discussing po-
tential membership in this
group. In addition, there
is a Panhandle-wide group
called PLAN (Panhandle
Library Access Network),
which offers workshops on
library topics ranging from
management to cataloging
and genealogy. Again, the
AML has plans to join this
group and take advantage
of their resources.
Carrie and I met the
Executive Director Bill
Conniff and discussed our
plans for automation of the


collection, and the poten-
tial of digitizing collections
of the Apalachicola Times
newspaper.
Anyway, it goes without
saying that the meetings
offered a lot of new ideas in
how the Apalachicola Mu-
nicipal Library can serve
its patrons and the com-
munity better. On the road
home however there was
nothing like seeing the bay
span out across the skyline,
to make us glad that we live
here in Apalachicola.
Please come see us at
the Library, 74 Sixth Street.
Library "cards" (we don't
actually give you a card)
are available to anyone,
including snowbirds and
visitors. Hours are 10 a.m.
to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10
a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
We not only have adult fc-

Also the opportunity at

A new not-for-profit
organization is bringing
free books to the county
and training parents and
friends of local youngsters
to become a first teacher by
reading aloud.
The Apalachicola Art
Museum, Marie Marshall
and David and Michaelin
Watts are working with the
Bring Me a Book Founda-
tion to promote literacy in
Franklin County.
They are forming a col-
laborative partnership with
schools; libraries, churches,
the county health depart-
ment and health care com-
munity; and the commu-
nities that form Franklin
County. Marshall said all of
these organizations were
represented at workshops
earlier this month.


Bring Me a Book is a
nonprofit organization that
provides easy access to the
best children's books and
inspires reading aloud to
children, by reaching out to
underserved communities.
Through the Watts' gen-
erosity, Nancy Ducos, senior
program manager for the
First Teachers Program,
traveled from Marin County,
California earlier this month
to lead a pair of "'Iain the
'Itainer workshops on men-
toring child readers. The
goal of this program was
to initiate a group of local
trainers in the Bring Me a
Book philosophy and tech-
niques that they can pass on
to local parents.
Bring Me a Book edu-
cates parents, childcare
providers, and teachers on


reading to children during
this period of their devel-
opment is one of the best
preparations that parents
and caregivers can provide
for success in school," said
Marshall.
Participants are intro-
duced to local library re-
sources and encouraged
to become more involved
in their child's education
Ducos led more than
30 adults through exer-
cises designed to teach
them how to engage chil-
dren in reading. Among
the attendees were Elaine
Kozlowsky, of Eastpoint;
Carol Barfield and Sondra
Bachrach, Adrienne Jo-
seph and Linda Gibson, all
of Apalachicola, and Dany
Ray and Bonnie Phlmer, of
St. George Island.


Marshall said there
will be a second series of
workshops scheduled for
early next year. In addi-
tion to training adults as
First Teachers, Bring Me
a Book will provide book-
cases of children's books
to local preschool and any
facility that has need of
them.
If you are interested
in acquiring a bookcase,
call David and Michaelin
Watts at 370-0126 or e-mail
them at bringmeabook-
franklinefairpoint.net.
Michaelin Watts said
the group is working with
Apalachicola Mayor Van
Johnson on a program to
have prisoners in a local
correctional facility build
the bookcases.

daily ritual of reading aloud.

Franklin County added a
district win to its growing list
of firsts as it spoiled Wewahi-
tchka's Homecoming 9-2 Fri-
day night in District 2-1A.
On a snap from senior
Chase Richards, and a hold
by senior Dale Butler, fr~esh-
man Elton Olvera booted the
new consolidated school's
first field goal, a 23-yarder
with 6:11 left in the third


quarter, to put the finishing
touches on what had been
a defensive and error-prone
contest from the game's
opening drive.
Seahawk junior quarter-
back Dalin Modican threw
an interception on the open-
ing play on a deep sideline
pass from his own 30-yard
line to Gator senior safety
Kenny Fisher.
But then Wewa senior
quarterback Cody Wade,
back after a six-week re-


cover from an ankle injury,
threw an interception to
Modican. "In football, you
never really know what may
happen next," said Coach
Josh Wright. "You must play
every play with no regards to
what happened last play."

Seahawks sophomore tail-
back Itkakel Thrr~ell to the

Senior end AJ Arnold ran back a 30-
yard interception for the game's only
touchdown Friday night against Wewa.
He also had three solo tackles, one
assist and a pass knockdown in the win.


Sophomore tailback Trekale Turrell ran for
52 yards on five carries, and had several
key blocks to spring crucial runs, in the
Seahawks' victory over Wewa Friday.

Modican pass and ran it back
to the 40-yard line, with 8:18
left in the first quarter.
Wewa senior wide receiv-
er Chris Peaks fumbled the
ball right back after a 15-yatd
reception, but Peaks atoned
for his miscue by sacking
Modican two plays later at
midfield.
A Gator drive was aborted
a few plays later when se-
nior running back Chance
Knowles coughed up the ball
on his own 34-yard line.
The Seahawks drew first
blood with 2:12 left in the
first quarter, when Seahawks
senior defensive end A. J.
Arnold ran in a one-handed
interception of a Wade pass
from the 30-yard line. Olvera
missed the extra point.
Midway in the second
quarter, Wright showed he
was willing to take risks
when, deep in his own terri-
tory, he executed a fake punt
on a fourth-and-2 to keep a
drive ahie.
But the Gators soon took
advantage of Franklin Coun-
ty's poor field position when,
with 6:15 left in the half se-
nior lineman Marquis Hurley
scored the Gators only points
when he sacked Modican for
a safety on a second-and-17
from the Seahawks' 12.
An alarming number of
penalties drew the attention
of the refereesjusthbefore the
half as they gathered both
squads midfield for atalking-
to.
About five minutes after
he completed his first-ever
field goal in the third quarter,
Olvera tried a second one,
this time from 35 yards out,
but he shanked it and the
score stood 9-2 with 1:32 left
in the third quarter.
Seahawks' defensive pres-
sure kept the Gators in their
own territory through much
of the fourth quarter, until
Wewa made its final push
with three minutes left in the
game.
After two incomplete
passes, Wade hit sophomore
wide receiver Theryl Brown
with a 14-yarder to give Wewa
a first down at their own 38.
Back-to-back rushes by
junior Colton Price gave the
Gators afourth-and-l on their
own 46, with a Seahawks' off-
side penalty then giving the
Gators a first down inside en-
emy territory.
Price ran for eightyards to
advance further, but with 1:41
left in the game, Seahawks se-
nior Eric Hicks sacked Wade
back across midfield, and

Special to the Times

The Lady Seahawks
are nearing the end of the
volleyball season with still
much to accomplish for this
to be a successful year. Too
many close matches have
been lost by the team, but
several positives in per-
spective for the next sea-
son.
The Seahawks played
back-to-back district rivals
this week, topping West
Gadsden and falling to
top seed Liberty County.
Freshmen Chena Segree
led the Seahawks to victory
over West Gadsden with
a total of 23 serving points
and eight kills, followed by
sophomores Morgan New-
ell with 11 kills and four
served points and Ciara
Moore with 27 assists and


eight serving points.
Ciara did a great job for
the team as setter. She al-
lowed multiple opportuni-
ties for the Seahawk hitters
to dominate the district
rival. The Seahawks stag-
gered a bit in this environ-
ment, winning the first
25-15 and then falling 16-
25, before coming away
with the win after 25-10 and
25-12 victories.
Our next bout with Lib-
erty County went just about
as opposite as one could
imagine, as the Lady Se-
ahawks fell 11-25, 6-25 and
19-25.
The team just doesn't
seem ready to play until
about the third game of a
match. It's just too late to
come back at that point
against most of our oppo-
nents. The momentum is
difficult to contain and the


matches just come and
go quickly with teams like
Liberty County. If the girls
could ever start a match
the way we seem to finish,
the outcome would be much
prettier for the Seahawks.
At this point, we are just
trying to manage the posi-
tive attitudes and encour-
age the girls to play their
best for the district tourna-
ment on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
We will play Port St. Joe
first and this is a team that
challenges the Seahawks.
We played great against the
Tiger Sharks during the be-
ginning of the season, but
just didn't show up for the
last contest.
We have the athletic
ability to win these volley-
ball games. We just have
to bring the right level of
intensity and attitude to the
court.

then was instrumental on the
third-and-13 when Seahawks'
defenders smothered Wade
at the line of scrimmage.
The loss handed the Ga-
tors (3-4, 0-3) their fourth
straightloss. Franklin County
is 3-3, and 1-1 in the district
"I tip my hat to the way
Wewa played. They're tough
to run on," said Wright. "I
couldn't be more proud of our
guys. We're back in the dis-
trict race."
The game was marred by
plenty of penalties by both
teams, but Wright shook it
off as he looked forward next
week to Liberty County.
"The Lord had given us a
mountain and He put ice on
it," he said. "We had to climb
it."
Modican led the team with
13 carries for 65 yards, fol-
lowed by'lI~rrell with five car-
ries for 52 yards. SeniorArron
Prince rushed eight times for
33 yards, followed by senior
DJ lane with 13 carries for
26 yards and Butler with one
carry for five yards.
Modican, who completed
1-of-5 passes for eight yards,
threw two interceptions. In
kicking, Arnold had three
punts for an average of 33
yards, with no punt return
yards given up.
Prince had one kickoff re-
turn for 21 yards, and 'Illrell
one for 6 yards.
Wright said after the game
that the team was motivated
in part by an online predica-
tion that had Wewa winning
31-12. "Our team totally be-
lieved that we could go over
there and walk away with
a win, but they also knew it
would nothbe easy," he said.
Because it was their
homecoming, Wewa did not
allow the Seahawks to warm-
up before the game on the
field, Wright said. "None-
theless, our team took the
negative and turned it into a
positive," said the coach, who


had his team warm up on the
baseball field. "The team's
energy and enthusiasm
on that baseball field all by
themselves was more than
words can describe. It was
almost like scene from the
beloved movie 'Remember
the Titans' listening to them
hollerback and forth with one
another in an entertaining,
but focused manner.
"You could see in the eyes
of the players that they were
ready to play. But, we had no
idea that our defense would
hold the opponent scoreless,
as they did in each of our first
two wins," said Wright.
On defense, Richards led
with 10 tackles, with one sack,
one caused fumble and one
fumble recovery
Senior Garry Larsen had
five tackles, four assists and
for pass break-ups. Senior
Ty~dron Wynn had five tack-
les and two assists, one sack,
one tackle for a loss and one
fumble recovery. Sophomore
Chris Granger had seven
tackles and two assists, while
junior C.J. Barnes had three
tackles, one assist, two sacks,
one caused fumble and one
fumble recovery.
"WYe knew that two-way
starter, Cole Lee, would not
be able to play due to illness,
but we did not realize that
other players would pick it up
in his absence. We thought
we may get a sack or two with
their pass-based offense, but
we had no inkling that ev-
ery defensive lineman that
played would register a sack,
hurry or tackle for a loss,"
said Wright.
Liberty County travels to
Eastpoint Friday night as op-
ponent on Senior Night. "The
Bulldogs are next on the list
of teams that hold the keys
to the district playoff ride,
and you can bet that we will
be working hard this week to
prepare to take those keys
away," said Wright.

Special to the Times
It's almost time for one of the
most important functions of the
year: homecoming.
This year, the Franklin County
Student Government Association
has some big plans, and we
are going to need everyone's
help and participation. Since
everything with homecoming
has been approved for K-12, we
are encouraging everyone to
participate in Spirit Week and
the homecoming parade, in
cheering on our Seahawk football
team, and in supporting the
homecoming representatives.
The Spirit Week dress-up days
are as follows:
Tuesday, Oct. 26, is known as
Team Day. Students will dress
in their favorite sports team
paraphernalia.
Wednesday, Oct. 27, will be
Wacky Wednesday. Students
will wear crazy clothing such as
bathing suits over clothes, wigs,
etc. During sixth and seventh
period, high school and middle
school will participate in another
homecoming tradition: the Silly
Olympics. In these Olympics,
students will compete in events
such as The Orange Pass,
Confetti Bucket, Balloon Pop and
other humorous games.
The conclusion of the Silly
Olympics usually ends with a
dance-off between students of
separate grade levels. Don't
worry elementary you are not
left out! During K-5's physical
education time, they will be
participating in their own Silly
Games with Coach Van Sickle.
They will have a new game every
day, and they are guaranteed to
be fun!
Thursday, Oct. 29, has been

Big Bend Hospice's Caring Tree commended
Big Bend Hospice was recently visited by the
Community Health Accreditation Organization, the
premier hospice accreditation provider in the country.
Surveyors look at every aspect of an organization,
including medical records and sanitation practices, and
they measure each agency against the highest national
standards.
Big Bend Hospice was re-certified as an Accredited
Hospice Agency having met and exceeded all national
standards. The Caring Tree Program, which provides
grief support for children and teens, was singled out by
the surveyors for special commendation. "This program
presents annually at several national conferences and
is frequently used as a 'laboratory site' for others in the
USA and beyond to see an outstanding example of a


program that impacts the community in profound ways
while maintaining a slim budget and intense community
support and involvement," wrote the accreditation team.
The Caring Tree program, established in 1995,
partners with the school and juvenile justice systems
and the Challenger Learning Center to provide grief and
loss counseling to children and teens, both in groups
and through Camp Woe-Be-Gone. Big Bend Hospice is
pleased that the Caring Tree has been recognized for
its work with young people who are often the "forgotten
mourners" after a death.
In 2008 the Caring Tree's staff of four counselors
touched over 2,700 young people in our area. The
majority of the families of these children and teens
did not use Big Bend Hospice services. Because this
program is funded through community donations, it can
be provided free to those who need it.
For more information on the Caring Tree program,
please call Pam Mezzina, 850-878-5310, ext. 799.

Love & Worship Center offers early service
If you work on Sunday afternoon and maybe do
not have a church home, or if you need a word from
the Lord, start your day off with an hour of praise and
worship.
The Love & Worship Center invites you to "Hour of
Power" morning glory services on Sunday, from
8 9 a.m., with Apostle Granville Croom, Jr.
For more information, call 653-2203.

The Executive
Committee of the newly
formed ACF Stakeholders
group is pleased to
announce that it is now
incorporated in the State
of Georgia as a non-profit
corporation. This event
marks an important
milestone in an effort that
began a year ago to create
a diverse, balanced interest
group of stakeholders
in the Apalachicola-
Chattahoochee-Flint Basin.
The formative principle
of the group is that the
political and legal structures
have failed to resolve the
18-year dispute over how
the waters of the ACF
Basin should be shared.
The guiding principle
behind the organizational
effort has been to create
a structure that reflects
the diverse interests
of the stakeholders.

Dan Tonsmeire, interim

Committee member for

said, "The level playing

by those most affected by

throughout the Basin gives
us the best opportunity to
find real and meaningful
solutions to sharing water
between citizens of our
basin."

Executive Committee
member for the Flint sub-

I've had the opportunity


to be part of the ACF
Steering Team working with
stakeholders throughout

with these individuals
convinced me that we can
work together to arrive at
workable solutions to meet

confident this organization

Local


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

Arne Larsen, of Hauge-
sund, Norway, has tray-
eled to Carrabelle to meet
his extended family and
honor his great uncle's lost
grave.
After five years of
searching, the 68-year-old
Larsen is reunited with his
lost great-uncle, Herman
"Harry" Larsen and has
discovered more than 90
new relatives on this side
of the Atlantic.
On Saturday, after a
year of planning and cor-
respondence across the
big pond, Larsen and his
wife Joy attended a cer-
emony at his great uncle's
gravesite in Evergreen
Cemetery in Carrabelle
and then attended a cook-


out with more than 30 of
his newfound kin.
When he began his
search, Arne only had an
entry in the 1890 Norwe-
gian census, which said
Harry Larsen was "at
sea."
Larsen said he wasted
his first year of searching
because he believed his
great-uncle had traveled to
Vancouver. After he finally
accepted the fact Harry
had not landed in Canada,
he began to search areas
where there were large
established populations
of Norwegian expatriates,
such as Minnesota and
Wisconsin.
Over the years, he
worked his way to the
Florida archives and final-
ly found a Harry Lancer
arriving in Carrabelle in
1900. Further investigation
led him to believe he had
found his relative. He later
contacted David Larsen,
of Tallahassee, Harry's
grandson.
"When he contacted
me, one of the first things
he asked was why Harry
would have stayed in Car-
rabelle," said David. "I told
him it's the same old an-
swer, a woman."
Harry met Druzilla
"Drusie" Putnal, nee Rich-
ards, in Carrabelle, a Creek
Indian and the widow of a
local fisherman with five
children. He married Dru-
sie and adopted her sons
and daughters. Together,
Harry and Drusie had two
children of their own, Bea-
trice and Harry Jr.
Harry remained in Car-
rabelle for the rest of his
life and passed away in
1951, a year after Drusie.
Arne said he believes
his great-uncle jumped
ship in 1890 on Ship Island
off the Mississippi coast.
"There is still a black
hole that I haven't filled in,"
he said. "Where was Harry
for the 10 years from 1890
to l900?"
David Larsen said, "I
may be able to help with
that. My father said that
far rive s nA alch c
found and crossed the river
to Eastpoint. He must have
been living rough in the


Frances "Drusie" Larsen
woods. He saw some chick-
ens and took one to eat but
the farmer caught him.
When the farmer found out
he was a foreigner working
his way across country, he
made him a farmhand, so
Ha~rr was in Eastpoint for
a wl."
Oldest in attendance at
the reunion was Frances
"Drusie" Putnal Martin,
of Attapulgus, Ga., and the
granddaughter of Druzilla
by her first marriage. Dru-
sie remembers her grand-
parents and bears her
grandmother's nickname.
"I was born, raised and
graduatedfrom high school
in 1945 in Carrabelle. I got
married at the First Bap-
tist Church in 1949," said
Drusie.
The youngest Larsen
descendent present was
David's granddaughter,
Isabel Rose Weider, of Tal-
lahassee, who is just 20
months old.
"I am a visitor who has
the privilege of getting to
know my family through
five years of work," Arne
Larsen told his family. "It
has been almost exactly a
year today since I found my
grandfather's brother."
In anticipation of the re-
union, brothers David and
Harry Larsen refurbished
the Evergreen gravesite,
which was on the verge
of slipping away, and fur-
nished it with a new tomb-
stone.
On Sunday, David and
his wife Linda set off with
Arne and Joy for a cross-
country trip to visit rela-
tives who could not attend

tavelr n ncksh rg, Mi 1.
Memphis, Tenn., and in
Florida, to Crystal River
and Stuart.
