Welcome Chili fans! )))2


VOL. 124 ISSUE 45


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
After listening to reports
as to the city's firefighting ca-
pabilities, Apalachicola city
commissioners took steps
'lliesday evening to grant
greater oversight to the vol-
unteerfiredepartment,1ead-
ing to a possible increase in


funding for the department
for the next budget cycle.
The lengthy discus-
sion on fire hydrants was
prompted by a devastating
fire in the historic district
last month that underscored
gaps in delivery of adequate
water pressure. On Feb. 8,
as firefighters fought to pre-
vent the 120-year-old Wright


house, at the intersection of
16th street and Avenue B.,
from burning to the ground,
they discovered the nearest
hydrant was out of service.
A subsequent survey of the
city's 200 hydrants showed
five were inoperable.
The 30 minutes set aside
by Mayor Van Johnson for
the fire hydrant discussion


'lliesday evening expanded
to about three times that
amount, as commissioners
heard from the engineer
who revamped the season a
decade ago, the head of the
county's firefighter associa-
tion, angry citizens and the
city's fire chief.

grand jury last week in-

murder and aggravated
child abuse in connection
with the drowning death

of a vacation home as they
were completing their stay

Heinz Bordt, 75, who
was on a shopping trip to
Apalachicola when the al-

told sheriff's office investi-

was the son of Karin and

The prosecution flew
Heinz Bordt in from his

only extend into July.
The exact length of the
season will not be announced
until early March.


The actual amount of
snapper harvested will be
increased from 5 million
pounds in 2009 to 7 million
pounds and will continue to
increase over the next few
years as the fishery recov-

Participants identified
deserted houses and a lack
of safety as the top two con-

lighting was a secondary
concern related to safety.
The partnership generated
lists of abandoned struc-

On the list of lights were
four lights on Seventh

three on 14th Street, and
two on 11th Street.
Many of the lights had

Both number of species
and number of individual birds
counted was down slightly for
the 2009 Apalachicola / St. Vin-
cent Christmas Bird Count.
Organizer Alan Knothe said
he believed that the reductions
were due to windy weather.
Seth Blitch, who led a party
on Little Saint George Island,
said the extremely cold and
windy weather made the count
very challenging.
Knothe said the lower fig-
ures were still within the normal
range for the count.
Seven teams of bird counters
went into the field for a total of
67 team hours. They walked,
drove or boated 134 miles and
counted 10,681 birds belonging


to 134 species. Last year, bird-
ers logged 145 species and more
than 40,000 individuals, but about
30,000 were members of a single
enormous flock of ducks.
There were eight additional
"count week species" reported.
A count week species is any spe-
cies that was not seen on count
day but was seen three days be-
fore or after the count. The bird
must have been seen within the
count circle.
Bald eagles continue to thrive
locally; 40 were spotted this
year.
The first Christmas Bird
Count was held in 1900, a follow-
up to the 19th century holiday
tradition when people engaged
in a Christmas "side hunt."
They would choose sides and go
afield with their guns; whoever
brought in the biggest pile of


dead animals won.
Many observers and scien-
tists had become concerned
about declining bird popula-
tions, so beginning on Christmas
Day 1900, ornithologist Frank
Chapman, an early officer in the
then-budding Audubon Society,
proposed a new holiday tradition
- a Christmas Bird Census that
would count birds rather than
hunt them.
Thanks to the inspiration of
Chapman and the enthusiasm of
27 dedicated birders, 25 Christ-
mas Bird Counts were held that
day, with locations ranging from
Toronto to Pacific Grove, Calif.,
with most counts in or near the
population centers of northeast-
ern North America.
Those original Christmas
Bird Counters tallied 90 species
on all the counts combined.

Letter to the EDITOR

Idealists don't get need for drilling
As a homeowner on St. George Island, I subscribe
to the Apalachicola Times, and read with interest
about the recent protest surrounding offshore drilling
for oil by a local group of environmentalist.
Are these people out of their minds? Do they
wish for our county and country to be continually at
Our knees to foreign Middle East countries for the
lifeblood of our economic engine tourism which
is supplied by the abundance of oil?
How many of these people who protested would
be happy to see this area rely on things other
than tourism, such as locally produced seafood
products? I have been reading how this much
beloved local industry is having its own difficulty
right now unrelated to our collective concerns for the
continuous supply of oil.
What kind of depression would Franklin County
be in if we could NOT buy oil from overseas NOR
produce oil domestically from drilling? If there
were no tourists visiting the area, and if we had a
challenged seafood industry, there would basically
be no jobs in Franklin County... What would these
protesters protest at that time? My guess is that they
would blame the government for their problems. Ahh,
Liberals... You can never make them happy.
My other guess is that most of the people who
"joined hands across the sand" are idealists, who
generally wish the best for this area, but just don't get
it. Not only should we be drilling for oil NOW, but we
should also be exploring Alaska (where all the polar
bears live) and we should also be doing all that we can
to sustain the development and exploration of oil and
natural gas not for the betterment of society but
for the sheer existence of the world in which we live.
Believe it or not, I love the environment as much
as anyone. Ilove the outdoor pleasures that surround
me on beautiful St. George Island, and I support the
RiverKeeper. But I am willing to risk that the benefits
of technological developments for oil production can
and will supersede the possibility of an accident that
might temporarily jeopardize the wildlife and world
that we all love on SGI. It's a risk worth taking. And
at the same time we should be developing alternative
fuels. Our energy needs must be attacked, not
protested!

Lately, I've been trying
to lighten the load. I'm
encumbered by a lifetime of
stuff, and I just don't want most
of it any more. I have one son
who lives in Seattle, just about
as far away as he can get, and
no one else who could sort out
all the memorabilia.
I spent the day going through
Rubbermaid containers stashed
under the bed, wishing an old
friend happy birthday, and
watching Forgotten Coast TV
and then "Forrest Gump" on
television.
I had been planning to write
about songs and music with
Apalachicola in the lyrics. I have
Googled, e-mailed and talked
on the phone. That column
is still a work in progress
because more and more
information keeps pouring in,
Did you know that "Home I'll
Never Be" by Jack Kerouac
mentions Apalachicola? Regular
readers might recognize my
"Apalachicola as Center of
the Universe" theory. It just
keeps getting validated. Based
simply on visitors to the library
doing genealogy research, I'm
starting to think that there are
only six degrees of separation


from anyone and ,
Apalachicola. Eat your
heart out Kevin Bacon.
'
Back to my day. _
One container had the .
homily from my mother's ..
funeral in 1997. Her
death prompted a crisis RED
of faith for our priest' AND
Tom Weller. He was with
my sister and me, as well Deni
as the rest of the family,
when we received her death
sentence from the neurologist at
Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. The
doctor gave her 12 to 18 months.
She was dead in four.
Trinity Church was packed at
her funeral, and Weller's words
shocked some but comforted
me. He said, "Where was God
through all of this? My anger
has not even started to begin
to dissipate and may shadow
me the rest of my life. The
illness and death of Audrey
Roux was not the will of any
God I worship. Don't say that
to me. And don't tell me that
everything that happens is the
will of God; that is blasphemy.
We are people of sin, cast out
of the Garden of Eden for it,
living in a sinful and broken
world, and almost nothing that


happens in human life is
the will of God."
Tom Weller helped me
keep my faith that day,
and I am grateful to him.
It took courage to step
away from platitudes
HITE and reach out to thinking
OUX Christians.
After I read his words,
Roux I found a notebook
Mama had started
writing when she knew she was
dying. It began with her earliest
memories and ended at about
age 13. I guess she didn't get
to finish. She wrote of climbing
trees; playing on the bay shore
with her boy cousins Louis,
Calvin, and Fred Anthony; and
teaching her beloved cousin
Bobby Joe Thompson how to
walk. She recollected many
solitary dinners by the wood
stove in the kitchen. Seems
that Papa Joe valued good table
manners, and she often was
sent out of the dining room for
some culinary transgression.
I relished her words and will
revisit them often because they
trigger many thoughts and
memories of my own.
Next on my agenda was a
call to Irene, an old friend and


roommate who was turning 54.
We lived together in Tampa in
the '70s. Once, back in the day,
we visited her folks in Elizabeth,
N.J. Polish immigrants, both
of them. Her dad never really
got the language but made a
life, bought property and left
a hefty financial legacy to his
family. He fought in the Polish
Underground in the Big War.
Irene's mom was put to work by
the Germans slaving away at a
sewing machine for the duration
of the war. She was skilled and
Catholic. She survived. She
met her husband in New York.
They made a life. At 92, she lives
near Irene in Cocoa Beach. I
remember her warm embrace,
pierogi and borscht. What a
woman! What a life! What a
privilege to know her! Irene and
I talked about mothers for close
to an hour.
After my afternoon calls,
I settled down on the couch
with the television remote. I
surfed the channels and heard
a familiar voice. Yep, it was
mine. Close to 20 years ago, I
did the voice-over for a video
about this area and the impact
of the oyster industry. The
Apalachicola National Estuarine


Sanctuary spearheaded the
venture. Woody Miley wrote the
script, and Dora McCarthy was
the producer. As I watched on
Saturday night, the program did
seem dated, but in a good kind of
way. My ego also received a little
boost.
I kept surfing and found
the movie "Forrest Gump."
Granted, during commercial
breaks, I tuned in to the
Olympics, the Food Network and
a Harry Potter movie. I stayed
with Forrest, though, because it
took me through my young adult
years. There was desegregation,
Vietnam and the soundtrack of
that era, Johnson, Nixon and
Watergate, plus a sweet story of
unconditional love.
After a day of this, I was in a
sentimental mood.
I knew I needed to sort it all
through, and so I sat down to
write. I'm a lucky woman. I get
to do something I enjoy, and
people read my words.

As a seventh generation
Northwest Florida native,
I've grown up in bear
country. I genuinely care
about you, your child
and your pet and want
to give you the very best
information on how to live
safely near Florida black
bears.


happy to see me, is a good
companion and is eager to
protect me.
You heard me right,
protect me. That is why
the best thing you can do
for your dog is to stay out
of a dog and bear fight. If
RIA you get involved, then your
AMS dog can't focus on trying to
protect itself because the
dog will try to protect you
instead. You put your dog at more
of a disadvantage when you get
involved because you distract your
dog's attention. It might seem
impossible not to do something,
but remember the best thing you
can do is stay calm and stay out of
it. Your dog has a better chance of
not getting hurt if you do. Believe it


or not, most dog and bear tangles
end without either animal getting
hurt and with the bear looking to
retreat as soon as the bear can.
For more information on how to
keep the bears wild in the woods
and out of neighborhoods, go to
MyFWC.com, or for a complete
bear presentation with safety
tips and more, contact me at
mariafwc@gmail.com. And as
always, stay calm, stay standing,
don't make eye contact, and I will
see you next time with more bear
safety tips. Take care.

Energy's Northwest Flor-
ida community relations
director, and was referred
to a Progress Energy em-
ployee who has not yet an-
swered his e-mail.
Nine houses target-
ed by H'COLA included
structures located at 12th
Street and Avenue L, Dr.
Martin Luther King Bou-
levard and 11th Street,
Avenue K and 11th Street,
Avenue M and 11th Street,
a burned-out house lo-
cated mid-block on 11th
Street, houses at the cor-
ners of Seventh Street and
Avenues G and M, and The
Sid Hawkins house and
Sara Nelson house, both
located on Seventh Street.
Price said Gene Os-
borne, the city building
inspector, is determining
owners of the abandoned
homes. Owners will re-
ceive a letter from the
health department asking
them to seal the structures
or have them demolished.
During their tour of the
H'COLA neighborhood,
Price and Flowers saw
many more abandoned
houses than were named
on the list. At one site,
mattresses lying on a par-
tially collapsed floor had
been gnawed by rats.
At the corner of Eighth
Street and Avenue K, not
a single house was inhab-
ited, and three were open.
Flowers said the hous-
es need to be sealed to
exclude rodents and other
stray animals and to pre-
vent children from play-
ing in the often unstable
structures.
In the course of the tour,
Price, Flowers and Walker
came across a large pile of
garbage in an alley behind
the public housing devel-
opment near 11th Street.
Illegal dumping also rated
high on the list of com-
plaints from the survey.
The pile contained nu-
merous health hazards


"We don't want to scare
people,"Flowers said."It's
a cooperative effort at this
point. We are just trying to
respond to what people in
the neighborhood say they
need."
Price said PACE seeks
to bring government,
business, the health de-
partment and residents
together to discuss health
issues unique to the com-
munity and, hopefully, to
resolve those problems.
She said Apalachicola is
at the halfway point in a
12-month assessment pro-
cess.
Once the assessment
is complete, Price and
her staff may help the city
to locate grants to use
for refurbishment proj-
ects. Price guided PACE
through a similar assess-
ment and mitigation pro-
gram in West Wabasso, a
community near Indian
River.
According to a summa-
ry of the project published
in the Journal of Environ-
mental Health, "Over two
and a half years, (PACE)
worked with the commu-
nity and various govern-
mental agencies to bring
much-needed improve-
ments to the area. A sur-
vey was conducted to dis-
cover if the residents' (be-
lieved) quality of life had
increased due to the im-
provements. The results
yielded high satisfaction
rates among residents.
The general response was
that their feelings of safe-
ty and overall well-being
increased significantly. An
unforeseen benefit was a
renewed trust in govern-
ment. "
Flowers and Price both
said they hope to imple-
ment PACE programs in
other Franklin County
communities. Eastpoint
and Lanark Village are
both possible sites for fu-
ture PACE initiatives.

Flowers said the trash

day when he returned to
post "no dumping" signs.

throughout the county.

of confidential health re-

to this event," he told a Tal-
lahassee television station.
Marianne Bordt's de-
fense attorney, Maria Ines
Suber, with the public de-
fender's office, had hoped
to block Heinz Bordt's testi-
mony by invoking the "hus-
band-wife privilege" con-
tained in Florida law. That
law asserts that a spouse
has a privilege "to refuse
to disclose, and to prevent
another from disclosing"
communications intended
to be made in confidence
between husband and wife.
The statute, however,
specifically excludes such
a privilege in a criminal
proceeding in which one
spouse is charged with a
crime committed against


the child of either of them.
Myers said he believed
a first-degree indictment
would have been attainable
had Heinz Bordt chosen not
to testify, particularly since
hearsay evidence, which is
evidence obtained from a
third party, is admissible to
a grand jury.
"We like to be open and
honest with a grand jury
and we like to present
sworn testimony," he said.
In the charge of aggra-
vated child abuse, a first-
degree felony, the prosecu-
tion left open the manner in
which Marianne Bordt al-
legedly harmed the grand-
son. The count asserts that
Bordt committed a battery
on the boy "by cutting with


a knife, or did torture or
maliciously punish a child
by drowning."
Circuit Judge James
Hankinson allowed Suber
to submit in writing ques-
tions to be asked the grand
jurors. Her questions in-
cluded whether jurors were
familiar with the case via
the newspaper, Internet or
by discussing the case, and
whether what they knew
would affect their ability
to hear the case. She also
asked whether they had any
thoughts or feelings about
the fact that Bordt is not a
U.S. citizen, and whether
they had strong feelings
because the alleged victim
was a child.
After failing last month


to get a broad ruling from
Hankinson to shield the en-
tire trial from the public due
to intense pre-trial publici-
ty, Suber has filed a specific
motion to have Hankinson
block disclosure of her cli-
ent's "alleged statements
to the police and others"
and hold a closed review to
determine of they should
be exempt from public dis-
closure.
Michael Glazer, an at-
torney for the Tallahassee
Democrat, has weighed in
against the motion, which
will be heard Resday, the
same day as the pre-trial
conference.
Marianne Bordt is be-
ing heldin the Leon County
Jail.

(0Unty backs fox/coyote penners
In response to a temporary ban placed
on fox/coyote pens at the quarterly Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) meeting held in Apalachicola,
the county commission voted unanimously
to support legal fo ning in thnedsc y tes

in large outdoor cages where they are
chased by dog packs.
The ban was imposed after FWC found
illegally obtained game animals and nu-
merous permit violations at 12 fox pens in-
vestigated during a sting last year
Animal rights activists characterized
fox penning as animal baiting rather than
hunting because the hunter do not carry
guns. They say that the game animals are
sometimes torn to death by the dog packs.
Animal baiting is prohibited throughout the
US.
Advocates of the sport characterize it as
humane because participants do not seek
to shoot the game animals.
Commissioner Cheryl Sanders brought
the motion to support fox penners before
the commission. She also spoke in support
of fox penners at the FWC meeting.
Sheriff Skip Shiver said there are no ex-
isting fox pens in the county.

"I think this was a wake-
up call," said Johnson, who
last week had called for an
independent investigation
of the city's fire protection
system by the Insurance
Services Office (ISO), which
rates a municipality's fire-
fighting capability for home
insurance purposes.
It became clear, however,
during 'Itlesday's discussion
that bringing in ISO officials
right now would only lead to
a downgrading of the city's
rating of6.
"I wouldn't bring them
in here today," said Jay Ab-
bott, the St. George Island
fire chief who serves as the
president of the Franklin
County United Firefighters
Association.
The discussion began
with remarks from Richard
Delp, project manager in the
environmental division of
Baskerville-Donovan (BDI),
the engineering firm respon-
sible for revamping the city's
water distribution system in
2002.
Delp said due to budget
constraints on the $3.7 mil-
lion project, which encom-
passed everything from put-
ting in new wells and water
lines to expanding the water
treatment plant, a decision
was made to achieve cost
savings by removing about
20 hydrants.
"Couldwe do with less hy-
drants without deteriorating
the protection?" said Delp,
noting that the decision was
made to remove hydrants
that were connected to the
oldcastironpipes.
Delp, a former volunteer
firefighterstronglydefended
BDI's recommendation, and
the city commission's deci-
sion at the time to support it.
aWedidthatwithoutjeop-
ardizing the fire protection
standards," he said. "The
way the system is designed,
you should have adequate
pressure and flow."
Delp said all residents
served by the Apalachicola
fire department, including
those in outlying areas out-
side the city limits, are with-
in 500' of a 6" water line, well
within the ISO standard of all
structures within 1,000' of a
water line. He said commer-
cial structures downtown
are all within 300' of a water
line.
Delp said the Ten State
Standards, another accepted
measure for determining a
system's capability, calls for


all structures to be within a
600' radius from a hydrant.
During the 2002 water
system revamping, BDI
replaced all the hydrants,
many of which had not been
properly maintained and
were encrusted and brittle,
with new units, Delp said.
Bobby Miller, a neighbor
of the Wright House whose
home was spared damage
from the blaze through the
work of the Apalachicola,
Eastpoint and St. George
Island fire departments,
questioned Delp as to why so
many hydrants were taken
out, especially since many of
the city's historic homes are
built of "fat lighter" known to
burn quickly.
Delp stressed that fire
protection standards had not
been compromised in the re-
design, and praised the local
firefightersfortheirefforts."I
have the utmost respect for
volunteer fire departments,"
he said. "They probably did
the best they could with the
equipment they had."
Apalachicola Fire Chief
George Watkins said he and
his fellow firefighters have
assisted the water depart-
ment in their examination of
the city's hydrants over the
last three weeks, and deter-
mined that trouble with the
6' steamer caps is the major
problem.
William Cox, who heads
the water department, said
all 200 hydrants have been
tested, and that in addition
to the original five that were
replaced, two more had sur-
faced with problem. One of
themonFredMeyersStreet,
needed to be serviced, and
the commissioner recom-
mended that it be quickly
replaced with a new one by
GACContractors.
In addition to the issue of
working fire hydrants, fire-
fighters also had to deal with
diminished water pressure
when they fought the Wright
House fire.
Delp said that was a func-
tion of the height of the city's
water tower and the width of
the fire hose, with smaller
hoses having more friction
loss in pressure. He sug-
gested the city may need to
add a supplemental pump
to the system to boost water
pressure.
Watkins said the depart-
ment has ordered 1,100' of
5" fire hose, double the width
of the existing hose, which
should assist with the water


pressure issue. In addition,
he said the department has
ordered 20 new radios, to
eliminate any problems with
communication that had
arisen in the past. "We'll all
be on the same page in our
department," he said.
In his presentation to the
commission, Abbott stressed
the need for an ongoing fire
hydrant testing system, so
as to comply with regula-
tions by the Department of
Environmental Protection.
He also noted that homes
on St. George Island, which
maintains an ISO rating of
6, are all within 1,000 feet of
a hydrant.
Abbott said it is impor-
tant to maintain a minimum
flow of at least 500 gallons
of water per minute, espe-
cially with the older wooden
homes whose intense heat is
capable of fending off water
spray. "These old buildings,
it's like pouring gasoline on
them," he said. "It takes tons
of water."
Abbott said he was sur-
prised at the water pressure
during the Wright House
fire. "You could squeeze the
hose with your hand," he
said. "You should be able to
run over it and not put a dent
in it."
Jimmy Waddell, with the
engineering firm Inovia, has
provided City Administra-
tor Betty Taylor-Webb with a
quote for doing an indepen-
dent water pressure check
of all the city's hydrants.
The commissioners also
heard an impassioned ap-
peal from resident Karen-
Cox Dennis, who described
the situation as "Dukes of
Hazzard on steroids." She
called for increased fund-
ing for the fire department,
which only receives about
$35,000 out of a city budget of
about $1.5 million.
Johnson said he would
consider an increased fund-
ing request during the next
budget cycle, and asked that
Watkins prepare his budget
and send it directly for com-
missioner review, similar
to how the police and other
departments make their re-
quest.
The commission also
acted on Dennis' request to
have all the old, abandoned
fire hydrants, which were
sold off as part of a humane
society fundraiser, removed
if they are standing in the
city right-of-way on peoples'
property.


Pam Anderson, man-
ager and part owner of
Captain Anderson's Marina
in Panama City and spokes-
person for the Panama City
Boatman's Association, said
shortening the season is a
hard blow for the charter
fishing community.
"We always say if the
season runs five months we
break even and at six months
we make a profit," she said.
Anderson was among
many recreational and com-
mercial fishermen who told
FWC that, contrary to data
collected by GMFMC, snap-
per are abundant in the Gulf
and may be damaging other
fish species,
"I caught snapper at the
end of last season with a
cane pole within sight of the


pine trees," said charter cap-
tain Chip Blackburn of Mex-
ico Beach. "To say there is a
shortage of snapper is giving
science a bad name."
Russell Crofton, of St.
George Island, said, "There
are so many snapper right
now you can't get past them
to fish for grouper. They eat
everything. They are ruining
the other fish."
The Boatman's Associa-
tion contends data on snap-
per populations in the Gulf
is faulty. They point to a 2006
study by the National Re-
search Foundation, which
argued collection methods
and statistical models used
to measure the snapper
population are flawed and a
totally new study should be
designed.


The Boatmen joined
forces with other commer-
cial and recreational fishing
groups around the country
and traveled to Washington
DC last week to draw atten-
tion to the need for better in-
formation when making fish-
ery decisions. Two busloads
of North Florida fishermen
were among the protesters.
Anderson said GMFMC
has requested $54 million in
2011 to promote a quota sys-
tem allocating a share of the
total catch to recreational
and commercial fisher-
men. "We want that money
to be used to collect better
information so the Fisher-
ies Council can make an in-
formed decision about fish-
ing seasons and bag limits,"
she said.

The Lady Seahawks played their first
big district game against Liberty County
at home Feb. 18 and couldn't have been
more unprepared. We were totally off
course, and it showed with a beat-down
in five innings of 12-2.
I guess Liberty wanted to pay the Se-
ahawks back from the 14-2 slaughter we
delivered them last year. Nonetheless,
we played awful, and the game ended
with a sense of disbelief for our girls.
Since that terrible loss, we have
played much better softball. The Se-
ahawks went to Wewa on Feb. 23 and
won their second district battle 6-3. It
was a sloppy game, but we came away
with the win, and that was all we needed
at that point.
During the same week, the Seahawks
traveled to Arnold High School on Feb.
25 and played a great game defensively,


but just never developed anything when
i ca nto atting.Ww tr gble oe
defensively, and it carried over into our
next game on Feb. 26 at Blountstown.
We came out swinging this time and
playing tough in the field. This was the
most exciting game we have had all year,
but we just couldn't come away with
a win. The Seahawks lost 8-7 in a very
intense game with the Bulldogs. If we
would have had just one fewer errors, or
maybe two, this game would have been
won by the Lady Seahawks. We just have
to get better and eliminate the errors on
routine plays. It is really hurting the out-
come of the game for us right now.
The Seahawks face Liberty County
again this Friday, and I am hoping that
we will play tougher with the changes
we have made since the first game with
them.
Christy Thompson is the coach ofthe
Lady Seahawks varsity softball team.


B David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Mike Todd, Franklin
County High School's ath-
letic director, has alerted
the Florida High School
Athletic Association of a
possible recruiting violation
in the transfer of Seahawks
star sophomore Carlos
Morris to a private school
in Jacksonville known for
its athletic programs.
In a Feb. 3 letter to De-
narvise Thornton, the FH-
SAA's associate director for
compliance and eligibility
services, Todd set in mo-
tion an investigation as to
whether FHSAA rules were
violated when Morris, one
of the leading players on
the Seahawks' boys varsity
basketball team, enrolled
in Jacksonville Arlmgton
Country Day just after the
beginning of the second se-
mester.
In his letter to Thornton,
Todd said Morris had failed
to earn a cumulative grade
point average of at least a
2.0 during the fall semester,
thus making him ineligible
for the second semester
sports programs at Frank-
lin County Schools.
"Because of this Carlos
has left our school," Todd
wrote. "He has registered
and as of today attended
classes at Arlington Coun-
try Day School in Jackson-
ville, Florida."
Calls to Jacksonville Ar-
lington Country Day were
not returned, although a
receptionist who answered
the phone confirmed that
Morris was enrolled there.
Morris' mother, Keturah
Washington, also confirmed
that her son was enrolled
there, but declined further
comment.
Todd's accusation of a
recruiting violation by Ar-
lington Country Day cen-
ters on an assistant coach
at the school, Antwain Tun-
nell. In his letter to Thorn-
ton, Todd said Tunnell
coached an AAU (Amateur
Athletic Union) team last
summer called The Heart
and Hustle Florida 015 on
which Morris played.
Todd is contending that
Arlington Country Day
violated rule 22.4, which as-
serts that "participation by
a student in non-school ath-
letics (i.e. AAU, American
Legion, club settings, etc.)
that is affiliated with any

school other than the school
which the student attends,
or attended the prior year,
followed by enrollment by
that student in the affiliated
school, shall be considered
prima facie evidence of re-
cruiting by the school to
which that student enrolled,
or that the student enrolled
in that school in whole or in
part for athletic reasons."
The rule goes on to put
the burden of proof on the
new school, noting that un-
less evidence that the stu-
dent "enrolled in the new
school in whole or in part
for athletic reasons is dis-
proved by the school and
student to the satisfaction
of the Executive Director,
the student shall be ineligi-
ble to represent that school
in interscholastic athletic
competition for a period of
365 consecutive days from
the date of his/her enroll-
ment in that school."
If Thornton finds in fa-
vor of Todd's challenge,
then Morris would not be
able to compete in basket-
ball for Arlington Country
Day until the second half
of his junior season, at the
earliest.
In his follow-up to Todd's
letter, Thornton asked for
a copy of the AAU team


roster, as well as a copy of
Morris' grades before the
withdrawal from Franklin
County High School.
"Verifying the contact
from the coach to the stu-
dent may be most diffi-
cult to prove, but the first
two items are 'tangible,' "
Thornton wrote, referring
to the AAU team involve-
ment and Morris' grades.
Morris has been ranked
by high school basketball
aficionados as one of the
top sophomore players in
Florida. In last year's Class
2A state semifinals in Lake-
land, he scored 20 points as
Fred Drake's Seahawks fell
65-59 to Arlington Country
Day, which went on to win
its fifth consecutive state
basketball championship.
Arlington Country Day
has long been accused in
basketball circles, behind
the scenes, of recruiting
violations, although there
are limited instances of for-
mal sanction by the state.
According to the Florida
Times-Union, in August
2000, the FHSAA placed the
school on a two-year proba-

clude propaganda and other
ephemera, part of what Director
Linda Minichiello described as a
treasure trove.
The staf at the museum is
busy placing these treasures on
display in the museum in time for
the upcoming Camp Gordon John-
ston (CG@ Days celebration, to be
held Friday and Saturday, March
12 nAftde Joseph D. Brinckerhof
Jr. of Middletown, N.Y, passed
away, his son and daughter-in-law,
Mr. and Mrs. Carl R. Brinckerhoff,
donated to the museum several
boxes of souvenirs he brought
back from New Guinea and occu-
pied Japan. Joseph Brinkerhoe
was a member of the 594th Engi-
neer Boat and Shore Regiment
that trained at CGJ.
His son had vacationed in Car-
rabelle and was impressed by the
museum, so he decided to entrust
it with his father's legacy. Among
the artifacts are silk embroidered
garments he purchased for his
wife, Rose, in occupied Japan and
an early rayon dress that might
have been purchased in the Phil-
Ippines.
TwoJapanesepropagandafans
are also part of the Brinkerhof
collection. One shows a small boy
with a rifle embracing an attack
dog and the Japanese battle flag.
The second shows a mother and
young son carrying battle flags
andsalutingwithapairofdovesin
the background.
Minichiello said the symbol-
ism of the fans is meant to remind
Japanese citizens that everyone,
including children, was expected
to fight to the death or until Japan
securedvictory.
Also included in the Brinker-
hof gift is a great deal of paper
ephemera relating to the war. All
the forms a soldier completed, in-
cluding a will, power of attorney
andmorebefore goingtowarare
carefully preserved with pictures
and pamphlets.
In addition to the weapons, uni-
forms and vehicles one expects
in a wartime collection, the CGJ
collection is already rich in pam-
phlets, popular literature, and
other rare and unusual artifacts.
Examples of both German and Al-
liedpropagandaaredisplayed.
The translation of a flyer, one
of thousands rained down on Ja-
pan by U.S. aircraft, warns, "Don't

again a sell-out, delighting attendees
to the annual fundraiser Feb. 21 at
the Fort Coombs Armory.
Of great assistance again this
year was the participation of stu-
dents from the Franklin County High
School's culinary arts program, who
served and cleared and handled vari-
ous chores under the watchful eye of
waitress Sandra Smith.
"She is real good for the kids," said
Anita Grove, chamber director. "She
is trying to instill in them 'I do this for
a living, and it's a proud thing to do.
You can earn good money.'
"They did a terrific job," said
Grove. "They knew they had to show
up and close. They were really on it."
Taking part were juniors Lakota
Humble, Eric Hicks, Amber Finley,
Joel Williams and Savannah Salyer
and sophomores Samantha 'llirner

The namesake of former

Col. Gordon Johnston, a

Pioneers, prisoners of war,
civilians, astronauts, and
explorers and scientists who
either gave their lives for our
country or in some way made
a major contribution to our
nation.
The well-organized book
is the result of six years of
extensive research to find the
.
story behind every man who
ever had a military installation
named in his honor. Author
Linda D. Swink, an Air Force
veteran, sai many names

The Times | B3


By Mel Kelly
Special to the Times
Today, I met a man who
is seeing the nearness of
his death threatening closer
with every new day.
Of course, we should all
realize that in reality, from
the day we are born, we
each begin our personal
journey toward our ultimate
death.
But my friend's demise
has more certainty than just
a shadow over his distant
future now. He is suffer-
ing from the accelerating
progression of a dreaded
disease which has been a
part of his life for years past.
'lkagically, the illness is ac-
celerating toward his final
battle these days.
His doctors hope to enroll
him in clinical trials soon. I
tried to find encouragement
in their suggestion, but as
my friend reminded me,
doctors only suggest such
dramatic action when all
other traditional treatments
have failed. For my friend,
hope becomes more limited
with each medical visit.
"I am seeing the lid of
my coffin close a little more


each day," he admit-
ted to me.
I have been think-
ing sadly about what
does it really mean
to confront such a
final reality for our-
selves? How should
we manage such an ME
outlook in our daily Thou
life and times? How
does such a terminally ill
person face each new day
with the understanding
that their physical condi-
tion seems to worsen and
their lifetime grows shorter
with each sunrise? Do you
sensibly make sure your
affairs are in order, pay bills,
file reports, make advance
funeral arrangements, clean
closets, give away treasured
possessions, remind fam-
ily and friends of your love,
and choose not to buy green
bananas? Or do you awake
each morning, surprised
at the opportunity of a new
day?
My yesterday friend
faces his mortality with each
suspicious ache or pain,
each doctor's appointment,
each new medication, and
he knows that he may soon
leave his friends and family.


I am not sure how
he or anyone
can honestly or
bravely confront
their own loss.
What does it feel
like to look ahead,
to be aware and
KELLY to be forced to
ts for the acknowledge an
mes impending ending
date on your life? Would it
be somewhat comforting,
having the framework of
a timeline? Or would the
news be so devastating that
comprehension is unaccept-
able and paralysis of action
sets in? Can the imminent
reality and confrontation
of death further define and
clarify what kind of a person
you are?
Of course, the reality
of death is with each of us
every day. An auto accident,
heart attack, falling tree,
earthquake, terrorist attack,
blood clot or plunge through
the ice can end our days
abruptly, without warning
or notice. And for the rest of
us, old age, illness, medical
errors or even self-imposed
action can end our lives,
ready or not.
But to be given the infor-


nation that your days are
numbered with a shorter
calendar than you had
hoped or expected must be
a dreadful revelation. On
one hand, it seems most ap-
propriate to make arrange-
ments and plans that will aid
your family and friends after
your passing. Some folks
do advance planning under
normal circumstances, but
facing death sooner than
later can motivate caring
thoughtfulness on behalf of
survivors.
But I also know of a
young mother who was
frozen by the reality of her
death sentence as a result of
her cancer's uncontrollable
spread. She felt too young
to die; couldn't face leaving
young children and a loving
spouse behind. Sadly, she
left this world in anger and
disappointment, too soon,
without the farewells that
could have been a gift to all.
In stark contrast, I re-
ceived a letter today from a
high school friend. Leading
her news was the miracle
of today's survival of one of
her daughters. Kathy had
been diagnosed in 2008 with
a widespread form of lethal


kidney cancer in her trans-
planted kidney. After eight
months of intensive but
unsuccessful chemotherapy
and hemodialysis, and a
malignant fracture of her
right arm, the 43-year-old
woman chose to discontinue
all treatments, enter hospice
and use her remaining time
to help prepare a slide show
for her own funeral.
Then, a miracle oc-
curred, say her doctors.
Kathy got better. Scans con-
firmed reduction and even
disappearance of the can-
cers in her liver, lungs and
bones. She had confronted
her own too-early death
sentence but then her real-
ity changed. She is suddenly
recovering. In spite of skilled
specialists and the most
advanced treatments, Kathy
was expected to die last
year. Instead, she got better.
She was given the gift of life
for more days, and months,
perhaps years.
Perhaps my yesterday
friend will have a blessed
reversal in his illness as
well. Perhaps his ending will
not be sooner but later, and
perhaps he will be given the
privilege of more days in his


life, even as he struggles
to keep life in his days. His
family and loved ones want
him to remain with them.
But just as Kathy bravely
faced her unwanted death,
my yesterday friend is con-
fronting what may sadly be
next for him. His hope is not
dead, but his struggle for
survival is even more real
now as the illness which he
held at bay for so long now
seems to be advancing.
Some things are under
our control, and some are
out of our hands. Whether
we die sooner or later,
whether we die suddenly or
slowly, whether we face our
end with dignity or coward-
ice, mortal life will indeed
end for us all. This is, as the
country song tells, "our tem-
porary home."
In the words of Pope
Paul VI; "Somebody should
tell us, right at the start of
our lives, that we are dying.
Then we might live life to
the limit, every minute of
every day ... there are only
so many tomorrows!"

Charles William Squires,
Jr., of Archer, passed away
on Feb. 22, 2010.
Mr. Squires was born
to Charles and Margaret
Holloman Squires on Aug.
20, 1943 in 'lliscaloosa,
Ala. As a child, his military
family moved often, but
there was always lots of
time in Carrabelle Beach,
with paternal grandparents,
Will and Dora Squires.
Grandpa Squires taught
Charlie to fish and instilled
in him a lifelong love and
respect for the Gulf waters.
As an Airborne
Ranger with 101st Division
"Screaming Eagles," Mr.
Squires was a decorated
veteran of the Vietnam
War. Flying airplanes was
a great love of Charlie's.
He was University of
Alabama football coach
Bear Bryant's personal pilot
for many years, and flew
corporate jets for Alabama
businessmen. Later, Charlie
was a renowned crop-
dusting pilot. He owned and
operated Squires Flying
Service in Selma, Ala.
Upon his retirement,
Charlie moved to Carrabelle
Beach full time. One of
his fishing buddies there


needed help at her horse
farm, and he volunteered
his services. After working
with horses for a short time,
he discovered that he was
a truly gifted trainer and
handler. Charlie's passion
for working with young
horses became a new
avocation. He came to live
and work at Grass Prairie
Ranch in Archer where
he was ranch manager for
more than 11 years.
He leaves behind his
mother, Margaret Squires'
of Tallahassee, and his
sister Peggy Higgins
(Jimmy), of Tallahassee
and Carrabelle Beach. He
also leaves a really fine
horse, a faithful dog, and
many true friends who
loved him.
Friends were invited
to gather at the ranch
in Archer on Sunday
afternoon, Feb. 28 to
celebrate Charlie's life. A
memorial will be held at
Carrabelle Beach at a date
to be announced.
Expressions of sympathy
may be sent to the HOPE
Foundation, a non-profit
equestrian therapy
facility in Archer, at www.

Church BRIEFS
to thank them for the important role
they play in meeting the needs of
hospice patients. Hospice volunteers
baked cookies and packaged them
along with a note of thanks to let
pharmacists know how much they
are appreciated.
When Big Bend Hospice has an
after-hours admission, or a family
needs a stronger medication for pain
management, local pharmacists are
the ones who stay open late or make
special arrangements for our patients
so they do not go without needed
drugs. "Having a relationship with the
community pharmacists makes our
job so much easier," Team Manager
Regina Compton said. "They
know the families and understand
the importance of making sure


medications are available as needed."
Pam Raker Allbritton, team
member and community outreach
coordinator, delivered the cookies and
was met with smiles and surprise.
"It's great to give back to the people
who give to us, a great way to say
thank you," she said Pam.
Big Bend Hospice serves
Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon,
Liberty, Madison, Taylor and Wakulla
counties providing compassionate
care to people with a life-limiting
illness, comfort to their families
and emotional support to anyone
who has lost a loved one. The Big
Bend Hospice's Franklin County
office is located at 207 SE Avenue B.,
Carrabelle. Call 697-3231 to find out
more about care and services.

From Wikipedia's Web site, I got:
"The name 'Wikipedia' is a portman-
teau of the words wiki (a technology
for creating collaborative websites,
from the Hawaiian word wiki, meaning
'quick') and encyclopedia." Quickly I
click on the link for "port-
manteau" and find out
what it means, since it is
not in my vocabulary.
Wikipedia has been
THE LIBRARY declared suspect by some
because it is a public-ac-
cess collaborative, where anyone can
contribute, and certainly this should be
taken into account. But really, for those
of us with just a sense of curiosity about
a subject, it's a great place to find plenty
of basic information, usually more than
you know what to do with by the time
you are done.
Type in "China," and you get the
page that covers the Chinese culture
but gives you the option of going to the


"People's Republic of China" link for
information on the country. There it
says: "It is the most populous state in
the world with over 1.3 billion people,
about one in five humans." Underlining
denotes hyperlinks where you can learn
more, first from a ranking of countries
by population and second a blizzard
of demographic information about the
country. Wow. I'm thinking, "What do I
really know about this important coun-
try?"
After reading just a little in Wikipe-
dia, I knew a lot more. The public access
computers at the Apalachicola Munici-
pal Library are not just for e-mail, job
hunting or applying for benefits. They
can be incredible tools to expand your
knowledge of the world. Come in and
enjoy the world!

Special to the Times
I had a young man in the library the
other day who wanted to find books on
China and Japan. I asked him what he
wanted to learn, and he said, "just to
learn about them." I looked with some
trepidation at the nonfiction section
of the Apalachicola Municipal Library
and decided for his purposes he would
do much better with Wikipedia (http://
en.wikipedia.org). Not that I want to
disrespect my Dewey decimals, but we
are only a 1,500-square-foot space, and
a book on China might tend to be a little
out-of-date.
Wikipedia is an online encyclope-
dia, which I use frequently, if not daily,
to look up authors to get lists of their
books with publication dates. Amazon,
where I can actually shop, has too many
graphics for me to cut and paste the es-
sentials I'm looking for.

building housing the fire station
resulted in holes in both the siding
and the roof, making the building
uninhabitable. The current police
station is located on the second
floor of a building that was flooded
in 2005 during Hurricane Dennis,
resulting in mold, a health hazard

including wind load requirements,
remove existing health hazards, and
provide a single point of access for
the public.

Feb. 17 marked the one-year
anniversary of President Obama
signing the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act into law. The
U.S. Department of Agriculture
has moved quickly to respond to
these difficult economic times
by creating]obs and revitalizing
rural communities. Throughout
the country USDA has taken swift
action to implement the Farm Bill
and the American Reinvestment and
Recovery Act of 2009.
These actions have resulted in
funding to improve water quality,
increase water supply, improve
essential community facilities and
revitalize rural communities by
expanding economic opportunities.
For example, situated on the
Apalachicola River, along the Gulf
of Mexico, the City of Apalachicola,
with a population of 2,334, has been
awarded $656,500 in Recovery Act
funds to improve police and fire
facilities. A combined public safety
building will be constructed to house
the city's volunteer fire department
and police department. In 2005,
