After listening to duel-
ing land use lawyers pres-
ent conflicting opinions on
risks involved, county com-
missioners voted Tuesday
night to shut the door en-
tirely on The St. Joe Com-
pany's plans for two large
mixed-use projects slated
for St. James Island.
By voting 4-1 to rescind
the last two of four projects
first proposed in 2005, the
commissioners refused to
blink in the face of a threat
made by the St. Joe Compa-
ny that it would go to court
to recoup millions of dol-
lars in damages it says is
due them under the state's
1995 Bert Harris Act.
Chairman Smokey Par-
rish was the lone vote in
opposition, contending that
the risk of liability was too
great and preferring the
county go with a less sweep-
ing approach advocated by
outside counsel brought in
to advise the commission
last week.
At a special meeting
Thursday, Dec. 10, the com-
missioners were advised
by their hired expert, In-
verness attorney Michelle
Leiberman, that the most
prudent course of action
would be to avoid rescind-
ing the Future Land Use
Maps (FLUMs).


LOIS SWOBODA |The Times
DAVID THERIAQUE
These FLUMs and the
land use categories that
accompanied them first
gave the go-ahead to the
potential 2,000-unit Marina
Village along 1,000 acres
bordering Ochlockonee Bay
and a potential 600-unit Car-
rabelle East project on 200
acres adjoining the eastern
city limits of Carrabelle.
Leiberman warned that
a St. Joe suit could claim
that previously granted de-
velopment rights were now
being taking away from
the company and that this
could pose "a significant
risk of liability to Franklin
County."
Leiberman recommend-
ed that commissioners
instead draft more restric-
tive land development reg-
ulations to further limit St.
Joe's growth options for

An Apalachicola man
saw a bird of prey snatch a
small dog.
George Meyers ofApala-
chicola was horrified when
he saw what he described
as a medium-size poodle
carried off by a large bird.
Meyers said that about
two weeks ago, he was
stopped at the traffic light
on U.S. Highway 98 head-
ing west, and a woman was
walking a small dog on a
leash about 20 yards ahead
on the sidewalk in front of
the Chapman Building.


He said what he de-
scribed as a chicken hawk
swooped down and grabbed
the dog.
"I saw her arms go up,
and then I looked up, and I
could see the bird and the
leash dangling down," he
said.
Chris Beatty of the Flor-
ida Wild Mammal Asso-
ciation, an animal rescue
shelter in Wakulla County,
said that in her 15 years
of animal rescue, the shel-
ter had been brought dogs
grabbed by raptors about
five times.

In this reserve collection are also

In the general collection, but
reserved for in-library use, are
things like the six-volume set of
"Biographical Rosters of Florida's
Confederate and Union Soldiers
1861-1865," compiled by Hartman
and Coles.
We have a large collection of

The library is working with the
Historical Society to consolidate
the microfilm collection of the

Even within our physical con-
straints of only 1,500 square feet,
we are trying to maximize our his-

Franklin County used to
be one of the three Florida
counties without an Educa-
tion Foundation.
Now there are only two!
In July 2009, several
concerned citizens joined
together to form the Frank-
lin County Education Foun-
dation (FCEF), a non-profit
organization whose main
purpose is to provide sup-
plementary support to en-
rich the public education
system.
"We are committed to
improving pre-K to 12 edu-
cational experiences and
providing our children with
thebestpossibleeducation,"
said Dr. Lois Mendez Catlin,
chair of the new foundation,
The executive board
of directors also includes
Dave Watts, vice chair; Jo-
seph Taylor, secretary; Bon-
nie Fblmer, chief financial
officer; and Martha Harris,
historian.
Board members include
MichelinRemyWattsSister
Leonius Skaar, Marie Mar-
shall, Teresa Martin, Ad-
reenah Wynn (student rep-
resentative), Jami Giametta
(student representative),
Kristy Branch Banks, LLD,
and Lynn Wilson-Spohrer.
Ex-officio members in-
clude principals Don Hun-
gerford, of the Apalachicola
Bay Charter School, and
George Oehlert, of Franklin
County Schools.
Catlin said an education
foundation is needed, es-
pecially in the current eco-
nomic circumstances, be-
cause "school systems are
asked to perform miracles

Ing
"Education foundations
are a partnership of educa-
torsbusinessescommunity
leaders, and concerned citi-
zens who raise funds to pro-
vide services to our schools


dsdorf s e s d
ensure their academic ex-
cellence," said Catlin.
The educational foun-
dation focuses not only
on students but on teach-
ers. FCEF plans to include
them through in-service
programs that will provide
for personal and profes-
sional development, as well
as support to enhance their
classroom curriculum and
satisfaction.
Catlin encouraged peo-
ple throughout the county
to become a "FEEDor"
(Franklin Education En-
richment Donor).
"Your donation will help
to feed potential programs
such as an appreciation of
the arts in education, a sci-
ence class experiment, a
comprehensive early litera-
cy project, the materials for
a math challenge, the sheet
music for a chorus, the
speaker at a training semi-
nar for teachers, a special
school project, and so much
more," she said. "Your do-
nation is critical because
the Consortium for Florida
Education Foundation's
(CFEF) matching grant
program will double your
dollars. Help us reach our
fundraising goal."
A check or money order
for a tax-deductible dona-
tion may be sent to Franklin
County Education Founda-
tion, Inc. PO. Box 783 East-
point, FL 32328. Or call them
at (850) 274-6649
Another way to help is to
consider getting the Florida
specialty tag 'Support Edu-
cation" when you purchase
or renewyourlicense plate.
The entire $20 will auto-
matically be contributed to
the education foundation
to support the future of the
students in our community.
Remember there is no
donation too small or too
large!

Laws govern nursing hOMO

discharges and transferS
On behalf of the more than 400
volunteer long-term care ombudsmen
statewide who advocate for improved
quality of life and care for residents, I
am writing to share a concern about
a growing trend in Florida's nursing
homes, the improper transfer or
discharge of nursing home residents.
Proper resident transfer and
discharge processes are crucial to
protecting the safety and ensuring the
wellbeing of elders who live in nursing
homes,
When a nursing home initiates the
transfer or discharge of a resident who
has lived there at least 30 days, facility
staff must provide the resident with a
written 30-day notice of the transfer or
discharge, unless certain conditions
exist.
Under state and federal law, a
resident may only be discharged for
one of six specified reasons, including
if he or she falls behind in payment,
if he or she is endangering him/
herself or others or if the facility is
unable provide adequate care for the
resident's needs. Both endangerment
and a facility's inability to care for
the resident must be documented in
the resident's medical record. This
documentation for discharge may only
be completed by the facility's medical
director or the resident's physician. If
this authorization occurs, the resident
and her legal representative must then
be given proper notice of the facility's
intent to discharge the resident.
If the resident falls behind on his
or her payments, the nursing home
has the duty to assist the resident in
enrolling in the appropriate Medicaid
or Medicare programs to cover the
costs. If a resident is still behind
in payment after the assistance
is provided, then the facility may
discharge the individual with a written
30-day notice.
A copy of all discharge notices
must be sent to the local long-term
care ombudsman office. This notice
gives ombudsmen the opportunity
to review cases and facilitate any
communication necessary between
a resident and the facility, ensuring


each resident receives the treatment
and respect they deserve and that his
or her right to challenge an improper
transfer or discharge is protected.
Residents should never be
threatened with a transfer or
discharge by any staff member.
Any such threats are a violation of
federal and state law and should be
reported to the ombudsman and/
or to the Agency for Health Care
Administration.
All residents have the right to file
a request for a fair hearing to appeal
a discharge. If a resident has reason
to believe he or she has grounds for
such an appeal, the Long-Term Care
Ombudsman Program encourages
these individuals to file a request for
hearing within the first 10 days of
receiving the notice. Acting within
the initial 10-day window allows a
resident to remain in the current
facility until the hearing is concluded.
An ombudsman volunteer can assist
in the hearing process as well as
represent residents at the hearing.
If you or a loved one has concerns
about a transfer or discharge notice,
or any other issues concerning a long-
term care facility resident, call us toll-
free at 1-888-831-0404 or visit us online

By Rev I.0is Long
Specialtothe Times
Today, heaven seems so near. There was a time
when heaven seemed so far away. From a child on till
adulthood thoughts of heaven was that it was a long way
off somewhere. But, once our loved ones take residence
there, it seems so close, like just above
us in the clouds. And if you looked close
enough you might catch a glimpse of it.
See, when our loved ones are there it is a
part of us that resides there also. So, we
have a connection to heaven.
Christmas is a wonderful time of the
2 year when we celebrate the birthday
LOIS LONG of Jesus our savior with joy and peace.
But, to many it is so bleak, and joyless.
There is no peace. The season is entered into with
dread because of the space left vacant by the loss of
loved ones. If one could only bring them back it would
give relief, because when they left it upset the whole
life's functions. Nothing is the same. How can life go on
without them? And it must! One feels devastated, lonely
and fearful, yet, the angels proclaimed "Glory to God in
the Highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to men." So, at
the birth of Jesus peace was promised to the inhabitants
of the earth, and besides that, goodwill. That peace
brought healing to an earth devastated by the curse
passed on to us because of sin at the fall of man.
So the question, "How can one have peace when that
peace and goodwill was taken away when ones loved
ones left them? Yet, it is a promise. "My peace I give
unto you, my peace Ileave with you."
Death was part of the curse so we need that peace
to heal the brokenness, and for one to enjoy goodwill
promised to men
Jesus, the Savior is the answer to our brokenness,
depression, loneliness, the feeling of devastation.
Besides the loss of a loved one, others have a loss of
jobs, homes, and other properties. All of this collectively
has the potential of taking away the peace and goodwill
promised by the Messiah.
Friends reach out to the Savior today for peace
and joy. It may seem impossible in one's self, but, it
is possible in Jesus. "On Earth Peace" was what God
desired for each of us.
No, even if given the opportunity, I doubt our loved in
heaven would even desire to come back to earth and to
us because they are in perfect peace and having a very
Merry Christmas in heaven.
Remember, even in loneliness or trouble, we can
have "Peace and Goodwill" that was announced to us by
the angels at his birth. May you receive it NOW!

Nanny state takes humanity
OUt of being human
This is regarding "New rules,
more worries," (See Apalachicola
Times, Dec. 10, 2009)
First, the FDA announced it was
going to take overreaching steps
for a non-problem. Now, the State of
Florida is knuckling under efforts to
impose costly changes for our oyster
harvesters and ultimately affecting
those consumers who want to eat raw
oysters.
From the NSSP Guide: "Current
information concerning Vibrio
vulnificus, which is responsible
for SEVERAL shellfish associated
illnesses and deaths each year can
be found in Watkins and McCarthy
(1994)." [emphasis added]
SEVERAL?! Here is the knee-
jerk nanny state again veering out of
control and intruding into our lives.
It's like the spinach crisis and tomato
disaster (which apparently turned out
to be something else) from a couple
years back.
This is "Cap and Trade" for
our oyster harvesters ... where
apparently significant reductions
in illness were made in 2005 2007,
not sure about 2008 but not meeting
the goal is probably the reason for
the action... rather than revisiting
standards and consumer educational
programs, it's Nanny imposed over
regulation,
The four affected states need
to jointly go back to the Vibro
Management Committee and put
some common sense back into the
proposed regulations.
I'm sick and tired of not being able
to get a medium-rare hamburger ... I
know the risks, and I hate having to
gnaw on leather burgers. We cannot
and never will make all forms of food
safe for all people. We're slowly taking
the humanity out of being human
(our ability to make our own free-
will decisions), and at obscene costs
attempting to do the impossible.
I don't eat raw oysters, but I'll
stand up and defend your right to eat
them!

"Chihuahuas are the
commonest. Sometimes
a bird will grab an animal
and take it up a tree but
not be able to hold onto it
and drops it to the ground,"
she said. "I have also had a
newborn fawn snatched by
an eagle. The truth is that


birds of prey will take small
animals as game."
Nature photographer
and experienced birder
John Spohrer said he had
difficulty believing Meyers'
story.
"Red-tailed hawks are
what most people call


chicken hawks. That would
have been at about the end
of the red-tailed hawks'
migration," he said. "The
hawks follow other migrat-
ing birds south. That's cer-
tainly a time when a hawk
might be hungry enough to
take unusual prey."


Could this explain a
number of cats that have
disappeared recently in the
10th Street area?
Probably not. Spohrer
and Beatty concurred that
cats are more likely to be
snatched by owls than by
hawks.

the two projects.
But Tuesday night in Carrabelle,
the commissioners took the advice
of a Tallahassee land use attor-
ney brought in by the Apalachicola
Riverkeeper, David Theriaque, who
contended there was little to fear
from what he termed "saber rat-
tling" from St. Joe.
"They threaten and threaten, but
a lot of time they don't do anything
about it. The concerns you express
are the concerns I hear from every
commission," he said.
"There is low to remote risk and
low to remote financial responsibil-
ity," Theriaque said. "Nobody can
say there's zero risk."
In addition to going with Theri-
aque's legal argument, the commis-
sioners unanimously approved a
motion to hire him, for $200 an hour,
in the event St. Joe makes good on
the threat of their attorney, Bryan
Duke, to lodge a Bert Harris claim.
Such a claim could be made with-
in the next year and could be for
the loss of fair market value to their
property, as well as for millions the
company says it has invested in the
projects.
"(Even then,) you have 90 days
to talk and 11 settlement options,"
Theriaque said.

Leiberman argUOS
for playing it saf0
In her presentation to the county
Dec. 10, Leiberman, a former Citrus
County assistant county attorney
now in private practice, said there
have been fewer than a dozen Flor-
ida cases to shape the interpretation
of the Bert Harris statute.
She said that based on her read-
ing of the statute, and on the actions
of the county commission, St. Joe
could make a case that when the
FLUMs were first adopted in April
2005, the company had "a reason-
able belief they would be able to de-
velop at some point consistent with
that law."
Bert Harris allows property own-
ers to sue if they have been "inordi-
nately burdened" by a government's
action, without having to prove that
the government instituted a "tak-
ing" of property rights in violation of
the Florida or U.S. Constitution.
Leiberman said the question
would be whether, when the FLUMs
were first granted, St. Joe had a
"reasonably foreseeable nonspecu-
lative land use" that gave them a fair
market value higher than before.
In addition, St. Joe has said that
in the event it sues under Bert Har-
ris, it would seek to recoup $800,000
it has so far invested in legal costs
and $5.5 million on the construction
of water and sewer facilities.
"Based on the law, that's a very
strong legal argument," she said.
Leiberman advised the commis-
sioners to set about developing land
use regulations "that are consistent
with the comprehensive plan that
also provide for growth and devel-
opment "in an appropriate time and
appropriate manner."
Commissioner Pinki Jackel than
asked, "We could go back and im-
pose certain restrictions?"
Leiberman answered in general
terms, saying that the county could
ensure that "growth can't outstrip
population," and impose regulations

and affordable housing, and when they got
what they wanted, it all went away.

requiring St. Joe to fund sufficient
infrastructure in advance of con-
struction.
"Essentially, it doesn't have to be
a maximum allowable density. You
need to be reasonable, rational and
fairly debatable that there's a rea-
son for what you're doing," she said,
citing public safety or the prevention
of urban sprawl as two possible cri-
teria.
Leiberman also said the county
could create "taxing and benefit
units so property owners in that area
are the parties paying the bill."

Carrabelle concerned
about water use deal
At the Dec. 10 s ecial meeting

Set. Jahmes Is1 Ires nthD h-
FLUMs in court, and Ken Osborne,
from Alligator Point, both argued
strongly that they should be rescind-
ed and the entire process started
again,
Osborne claimed St. Joe had
beefed up its density numbers after
its initial presentation to the com-
mission four years ago.
"I don't know what there is to en-
sure that the same kind of backroom
dealing is going to occur in the land
development regulations," Osborne
said. "I've listened to a lot of law-
yers, and there's a chance of getting
beat. All I'm asking you is to protect
Franklin County."
Ashley said he would work with
the commission in the event they re-
scinded the FLUMs.
"You clearly have very hard de-
cisions to make," he said. "I can't
imagine a land development regula-
tion that won't be challenged by one
side or another."
Leiberman agreed that any land
regulations later imposed on St. Joe
might be challenged in court, but
she stressed that the liability would
be much less than rescinding the
FLUMs, since all St. Joe would be
due is the specific cost of the new
regulation, not the fair market value
of the entire project.
"Tell St. Joe that we want to sit
down and start with a clean slate.
Otherwise, it's going to be endless
litigation," Ashley said. "I will help
you in whatever decision you make.
I am not against the county com-
mission. I see the need for balanced
growth, and that (the two proposed
mixed-used developments) ain't it."
At Tuesday's meeting, Carrabelle
Commissioner Jim Brown asked
the county to table any action on
rescinding until Carrabelle has had
a chance to sit down with St. Joe
executives regarding water system
plans.
"We have this huge water plant,
and part of the plan is to work with
St. Joe," he said.


Brown said the city built a wa-
ter plant not far from the proposed
Carrabelle East project in hopes of
serving water users as far as Alliga-
tor Point, but County Commissioner
Bevin Putnal said wasn't convinced
St. Joe ever intended to hook into
the system.
Putnal said he liked the idea of
rescinding the FLUMs, starting over
and looking into annexing the Car..
rabelle East land into the city, which
would require any future developer
to use the city's water system.
On Tuesday, Theriaque reiterated
his position that the financial risk of
rescinding the FLUMs was slight,
especially since the development
plans represent only a small spike
in the long-range span of the land's

us slo one has a right to maximum
foreseeable speculative outcome,
he said. "Everybody's ignoring the
fact they bought the land as agricul-
tural, and if you take away the zon-
ing change, they got what they paid
for to begin with."
Theriaque, whose experience in-
cludes serving on both sides of Bert
Harris cases as well as mediating
another, said St. Joe never filed the
development application, and said
that further weakens the compa-
ny's case. He said the fact that the
county was repealing entire land use
categories created for St. Joe also
strengthens the county's hand.
Osborne said Tuesday "this whole
thing was flawed from the start" and
downplayed any likelihood that St.
Joe, which has put a halt to develop-
ing any new projects in the Panhan-
dle, would go to court.
They can't even keep a restau-
rant open," he said. "They're not in
the development business."
Putnal said that if St. Joe "sues us
later on, it's going to be harder for
themtoevergetanypermissionto
do anything in this county."
Commissioner Cheryl Sanders'
who led the fight earlier this year to
rescind the St. Joe FLUMs, said pop-
ulation projections that never came
to pass necessitated the move.
"We were promised and told that
the numbers were there, and would
be there," she said. "We were told
we'd have water access and afford-
able housing, and when they got
what they wanted, it all went away.
It's not about the financial responsi-
bility; it's about the people of Frank-
lin County."
County Planner Alan Pierce said
he has been in contact with the Flor-
ida Association of Counties for help
in the event St. Joe goes to court.
"This case could prevent counties
from ever making reductions in fu-
ture population estimates and land
use applications," he said. "Does
this mean that once a map is made,
we can never change it?"

CVS from page Al
chain for the past 13 years.
Metro Group has offered
the school district $1.1 mil-
lion for the property.
By unanimous consent,
the district set the ball in
motion for a possible deal
but took no step toward for-
mally approving a sale.
Acting on a recommen-
dation from Sam Carnley,
the district's director of
finance, the school board
agreed to secure two ap-
praisals and advertise for
bids on the property. Both
are legal requirements if
the district is to dispose of
any surplus property worth
more than a half-million
dollars.
The only string attached
to advertising the sale of the
property is that bids must
he within 10 percent of the
appraisal to be accepted.
But such advertising does
not require that the school
districtcompletesaleofthe
property, Carnley said.
LibertosaidMetroGroup
is looking to build a larger
store for CVS, with a drive-
through and more parking
space than its store has one
block east at 139 Ave. E.
He said parking would
herelocatedfortheexisting
portion of the old Chapman
School, which had been the
district's administrative of-
fice and now houses tem-


porary space for the county
health department as well
as the auditorium for the
Apalachicola Bay Charter
School. That parking would
be placed on the front lawn
area that runs along Av-
enue E between 12th and
14th streets.
"We think the natural
entrance for that (new)
building is on 12th Street,"
Liberto said. "We'd put in a
parking lot and landscape
it."
He said developers
would like to work closely
with city officials to allow
for a structure in keeping
with the adjacent Art Deco
structure as well as the ar-
chitectural controls of the
historic district.
"We're not going to go
in and throw up a big, ugly
box," Liberto said. "We can
make it look like the old
school. We'd like to make it
looklikethat.
"We're very sensitive to
what's going on in Apala-
chicola,"he said."We're go-
ing to try to do something.
It's not going to make ev-
erybody happy. We know
that."
Currently, the land is
zonedresidentialandwould
require a zoning change to
erect a pharmacy. Liberty
said the developers plan to
invest time and money in


the process, but needed the
go-ahead from the school
board before going any fur-
ther.
"We need y'all to say
you're on board," he said.
"There are a lot of hur-
dles."
While board members
agreed to move forward
with the appraisals, there
was little direct comment
of strong support for the
proposal.
"I would like to do this,
butIdon'twanttogoagainst
the community," Chairman
JimmyGandersaid."Idon't
want the school board over
here and the whole county
over there."
Gander recalled how
the building, built after the
original wooden Chapman
School was cut up and dis-
tributed in pieces in 1917,
had stood on the site up
until he was 10 years old, in
themid-'60s.
In October, when it had
stores under construction
in Macon and Rome, Ga.,
MetroGroup announced
plans to develop 16 ad-
ditional CVS/pharmacy
stores throughout Geor-
gia in 2009 and 2010. Since
1995, the real estate com-
pany has developed almost
80 CVS/pharmacy stores
throughout Georgia and
Florida.

Times City Editor
The Franklin County Seahawks
kept the home crowd on the edge
of their seats last week, battling
a close one against the Liberty
County Bulldogs before securing
a double-digit victory, and then
letting a 15-point lead slip away
before winning a close one against
the Class 4A Mosley Dolphins.
"We don't play good at home,"
said Seahawks Coach Fred Drake,
as he prepared for 'lliesday's
away game against Blountstown.
"They're trying to please some of
the fans too much."
On Dec. 10, the Seahawks let
Liberty County open with a 10-0
run, before settling down. Senior
Austin O'Neal nailed a free throw
with 1:07 left in the first quarter to
tie the game at 12.
The battle continued, with a 17-
17 tie midway through the second
quarter broken when sophomore
Carlos Morris nailed a bucket to
put Franklin County ahead.
Tied 26-all at the intermission,
the Seahawks opened a five-point
lead at the end of the third quarter,
and then iced the cake by outscor-
ing the Bulldogs 21-12 in the fourth
quarter to secure the 67-53 win.
"That was the fear of the un-
known," said Drake. "We never
played them before and we just
didn't know what to expect. My

took them seriously from what we
saw the past couple years," he
said. "We always get up for teams
when we have revenge in mind.
It's going to be a different game on
Friday."
The Seahawks travel to Mosley
Friday night for a rematch.
Drake said he has given Morris
the go-ahead to shoot the ball, and
that his numbers are improving as
he fully recuperates from a recent
foot injury.
"He has the green light wher-
ever he wants it," he said. "Even-
tually he's going to knock it down.
He gives us our best chance of win-
ning regardless."
Drake said both O'Neal and
senior Arron Prince also have the
green light to shoot the ball, with

"I can deal with that," said
Drake.

"I ran it down to six minutes even
when we had Carlos on the bench.
We were fine; they couldn't stop
my stall offense."
Drake said Morris got in foul
trouble because he's been mov-
ing away from his traditional role.
"He's trying to help out some of
the other guards and he's pick-
ing up their fouls," said the coach.
"Our guards aren't playing good
defense.
"Right now we are a better of-
fensive team than we were last
year but a terrible defensive team
compared to last year," he said.
Drake also said he was con-
cerned about his team letting down


than I thought they were."
O'Neal led all scorers with 28
points, with a high shooting per-
centage. "He's attacking the bas-
ket and those shots are easy to fall
in," said Drake. "He's been doing
that, attacking the basket, and he's
putting up hig-time numbers."
Also, the entire team shot 84
percent from the free throw line,
a statistic that can prove crucial in
close games.
Against Mosley on Saturday
night, the Seahawks let a 15-point
margin after three quarters, 41-26,
transform itself into a nailbiter as
the Dolphins outscored the Se-
ahawks 21-8 in the last quarter.


With11secondsleftinthe game,
and the Seahawks leading 48-47, ju-
nior Dalin Modican stepped to the
line. He missed the first of two free
throws, and then made the second,
and Mosley then raced down the
court, but failed to connect on their
two-point try.
With sophomore Carlos Morris
on the bench with four fouls, and
the Seahawks with a double-digit
lead, Drake opted for his tried-and-
true stalling tactics in the fourth
quarter.
But he said he abandoned it too
soon.
"What I should have done is
kept with my strategy," said Drake.

Special to the Times
OnTuesdayandWednes-
day, Dec. 8 and 9, the boys
varsity Seahawks soccer
team faced the JV Leon
and varsity John Paul II
soccer teams, respectively.
The Tuesday night
match at Leon provided
an opportunity for the Se-
ahawks to see how they
match up against a team
similar in age. A limited
amount of available sub-
stitutes finally caught up
with the Seahawks, as the
larger roster size of Leon
allowed for almost limitless
substitutions, and over the
course of the game, wore
down a gamer effort by the
'Hawks.
Although the Seahawks'
overall defense broke
down on a few critical plays
which allowed for multiple


though clearly outmatched,
played as if possessed by
the soccer gods and even
a limited Seahawks' roster
due to illness, did not seem
to dampen the resolve of
the players present. John
Paul II had to earn every
one of their goals and the
Seahawks refused to go
down until the final whis-
tie.

match, the Seahawks faced

John Paul exhibited why
they were one of the pre-

Fred Sawyer Matthews and his
wife Karin celebrated their 50th

was married on Dec. 12, 1959 in
Stuttgart, Germany where Fred
met the former Karin Schroter
while serving in the U.S. Army.

thy Sawyer Matthews and the

his bachelor's in teaching. They
relocated to Key West in 1964 and
have remained there ever since.

studies teacher at Key West High
School for 32 years and Mrs. Mat-
thews worked as a banking teller
and then bank officer in Key West
for over 20 years.

a son, Steve (Karen) Matthews
who resides in Duluth, Ga. and a
daughter, Monica (Jose) Santana
who resides in New Tampa; and
three grandsons, Alex Matthews,
10; Joey Santana, 7, and Robby
Santana, 3.
As a celebration of their 50
years of marriage, Mr. and Mrs.
Matthews took a two-week land
tour/cruise to Alaska this past
July.
Their children offer the
following cheer to their parents:
Our family's full of joy
because
You're celebrating your 50th,
And as your kids, we want to
say
As parents, you're the
"niftieth!"
On your golden anniversary,
We hope you have lots of
fun.
We're happy for you, and for
us, because
In the parent lottery, we won!

Local


Officers from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission's Division of
Law Enforcement were busy
in the last several weeks, from
Nov. 20 to Dec. 3, with both un-
dersize and oversize fish.
Officers Carmon Brownell,
Percy Cook, and Steven Cook
were working illegal net fish-
ing in the area of Bob Sikes
Pass. From a secluded loca-
tion, Steven Cook observed a
recreational angler in a ves-
sel catch and keep what ap-
peared to be an oversize red
drum. After landing the fish in
the vessel, the angler started
the vessel and left the area.
The officer relayed a de-
scription of the vessel and
angler to Perry Cook and
Brownell, who were in a pa-
trol vessel in the area. After
locating the angler, he admit-
ted to catching the red drum,
which was 39 inches in length,
The angler was issued a mis-
demeanor citation for posses-
sion of an oversize red drum


and the fish was released
alive.
Percy Cook was conduct-
ing recreational license and
fisheries inspections on an-
glers at the St. George Island
fishing pier, when one angler's
catch revealed he was in pos-
session of seven undersize
spotted sea trout ranging in
size from 12-% to 14 inches.
The fish were seized and the
angler issued a misdemeanor
citation for possession of un-
dersize spotted sea trout and
a warning for over the bag
limit of spotted sea trout.
Carbon Brownell and Lt.
Harry Parker responded to
a call of a commercial oys-
ter vessel harvesting oysters
from closed waters. Upon ar-
rival, the officers saw the har-
vesters actively engaged in
the harvest of oysters.
When the harvesters no-
ticed the marked patrol ves-
sel approaching, they pulled
their anchor and attempted to
leave the closed waters. After


boarding and inspecting the
vessel, the three commercial
harvesters were each issued
misdemeanor citations for
harvesting oysters from con-
ditionally approved waters
during a closure. Three bags
of oysters were returned to
the water alive.
Officers Benjamin Bar-
nard, Percy Cook and Don
Walker were working illegal
net fishing in the area of St.
George Island and Eastpoint.
From a secluded location,
Walker saw a commercial
oyster harvester in prohibited
waters and made contact with
Barnard and Cook, who were
in the area in a marked patrol
vessel. He advised them of
the location of the vessel and
a description of it and the har-
vester, and the officers quickly
made contact. The harvester
was issued a misdemeanor ci-
tation for harvesting oysters
from prohibited waters. The
oysters were seized and re-
turned to the prohibited wa-


ters alive.
Brownell, Barnard and
Percy Cook were working in
Apalachicola Bay address-
ing saltwater product license
and Apalachicola Bay oyster
permit violations. The officers
were trying to locate a har-
vester who had given false in-
formation to Brownell the day
before. When his vessel was
boarded, the harvester sup-
plied his brother's name in-
stead of his own, knowing that
his brother had a valid license
and permit.
After locating the harvest-
er the second time, he admit-
ted to Brownell that he pro-
vided false information the
day before to avoid receiving
a citation. Brownell placed the
harvester under arrest and he
was transported to the Frank-
lin County Jail where he was
charged with giving a false
name to a law enforcement
officer, no saltwater products
license and no Apalachicola
Bay oyster permit.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR DRINKING WATER
Monitoring Requirements Not Met for Eastpoint
Water & Sewer District

Our water system violated two drinking water standards over

the past year. Even though these were not emergencies, as our
customers, you have a right to know what happened and what
we did to correct these situations.


We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific
contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring
.
are an dictator of whether or not our drmking water meets
health standards. During Januar -June 2009 we did not
monitor for lead and copper and therefore cannot be sure of

the quality of our drinking water during that time.


What should I do?


There is nothing you need to do at this time.


The table below lists the contaminants we did not properly
test for during the last year, how often we are supposed to

sample for these contaminants, how many samples we are
supposed to take, how many samples we took, when samples
should have been taken, and the date on which follow-up
*
samples were (or will be) taken.

Contaminant Required sampling frequency Number of When all samples When samples were or
samples should have been will be taken

Lead 10 samples for two consecutive 0 January-June 2009 July-December 2009
6-months January-June 2010
10 samples for two consecutive July-December 2009
Copper 6-months 0 January-June 2009 January-June 2010


What happened? What is being done?


We have since taken the required samples, as described
in the last column of the table above. The samples showed
we are meeting drinking water standards.

FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE

Final notice is hereby given of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) intent to
provide Franklin County, Florida to assist in the restoration of Alligator Drive (CR-370), which was
damaged FEMA Disaster DR-1551-FL (Hurricane Ivan) and DR-1595 (Hurricane Dennis), Funds will
be provided in accordance with the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act,
Public Law 93-288, as amended, through the FEMA Public Assistance (PA) Program.

Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990
FEMA is required to provide public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or
wetlands. Federal actions must also be reviewed for opportunities to relocate facilities and evaluated
for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal and safety considerations.

Franklin County proposed to rebuild and relocate about 1800 LF of CR 370 (a designated hurricane
evacuation route) approximately 400 feet inland in the vicinity of Harbor Circle and Tom Roberts
Road to replace the function of the damaged facility located between N29.894896, W84.36971 and
N29.89406, W84.27482. The purpose of the proposed realignment is to prevent or reduce the possibility
of future damage to the roadway, which is needed to facilitate evacuations during severe storm events.
All work will be within existing, pre-disturbed public and private roadways. Some acquisition of private
land would be required.

This project involves the construction of new facilities in previously developed area which is within a
mapped Coastal High-Hazard Area (Zone VE) as medicated by FIRM 12037CO313E and 12037CO294E.
Because of the topography of the surrounding area, no practicable alternatives to locating the facility
within the floodplain exist.

The Proposed Action is to begin the proposed realignment around N29.89496, W84.36971 and follow
exiting Tom Roberts Road 1000 LF to the NW until Harbor Circle. There it will turn south 400 LF to an
existing unnamed private road, turn east for 300 LF, to reconnect with existing CR 370 at N29.89406,
W84.37482. (See attached Map #1). Other routes were considered, but were not chosen because they
would still be subject to storm damage or had the potential for impacts to endangered species and/or
wetlands. Two alternatives to the Proposed Action have been considered 1) Take no action. 2) Repair
the facility to pre-disaster condition. Alternative 1 was not selected because CR 370 provides the only
access into and out of the community and is necessary to protect the public health and safety. Alternative
2 was not selected because the road as originally constructed is subject to damage from future disaster
events. The Proposed Action is anticipated to have positive social and economic impacts on the local
community by providing a secure evacuation route necessary to protect the health and safety of the
public. There are no practicable alternatives to relocating the facility within the Coastal High-Hazard
Area (Zone VnE) rdlbtential for future damage will be mitigated by relocation and adherence to current


The project site is not within a Coastal Barrier Resource Unit (CBRU). Based on the project description
and location, FEMA has determined that there will be no effect to threaten or endangered species or their
designated critical habitat. FEMA has determined that this project will not adversely impact any historic
structures or buried cultural resources. Funding for the project will be conditioned on the applicant
obtaining all applicable federal, state and local permits and complying with all permit requirements and

Special to The Times
The Bring Me a Book
reading program is making
rapid progress.
Bring Me A Book's
(BMAB) mission is to pro-
vide easy access to the best
children's books and in-
spire reading aloud to chil-
dren. By providing libraries
with high quality children's
books and read aloud work-
shops to underserved com-
munities, BMAB inspires
reading aloud to children,
the most important factor
in determining a child's fu-
ture success in reading.
The BMAB Bookcase
Library Program provides
bookcases of age-appro-
priate, culturally diverse,
hardback books in multiple
languages to children in
underserved communi-
ties, placing them in pre-
schools, childcare centers,
elementary schools, and
community centers.
Bring Me a Book Frank-
lin, the first licensee of
BMAB, will have its own
logo and innovative pro-
grams including a musical
outreach to serve county
children.
With support and coop-
eration from Apalachicola
n Daun JoHhnsdnona
bookcases were construct-
ed by inmates at the Frank-
lin Correctional Institu-
tion under the supervision
of staff member Richard
Sands.
Michaelin Watts, one of
BMAB's chief backers, in-
spected the first complet-
ed bookcase earlier this
month,
On Dec. 2, the shelves
were distributed to sites
that include the Carra-
belleandEastpointHead
Starts, Early Head Start in
Apalachicola, Davis Child
Development, Bay Com-
munity School, all pre-Kin-
dergarten and Kindergar-


marvelous books focusing
on the African-American
culture. Barfield is giving
two teen leaders the experi-
ence of being chair and co-
chair of the Tigers' BMAB
program.
Bonnie Almer is train-
ing ABC Charter School
seventh and eighth graders
and Franklin County School
high school students to be-
come Teen Readers, who
will read aloud to younger
students in their schools
with emphasis on pre-Kin-
dergartens and Kindergar-
tens. This will dovetail with
a program Principal Don
Hungerford envisioned for
interactions between older
and younger students at the
ABC School.
Almer is planning par-
ent training sessions at
both schools. Faye Johnson
of Project Impact will use
the extended library at the
ABC after-school location
where the younger children
are based.
Elaine Kozlowsky and
Marshall are working to
distribute books allocated
for the Weems Clinic in Car-
rabelle and at the Weems
hospital
Watts said she and her
husband David are funding
ethiprog mbucon letelk
other lpcal contributions
and grants in the future
"We want to help the county
business community and
have purchased about 1,000
books from Downtown
Books in Apalachicola,"
said Watts.
