Pearlman raises red flag to avoid dismissal

YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER FOR MORE THAN 120 YEARS


VOL. 124 ISSUE 51


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
The clock is ticking for Jay
Pearlman, the school district's
newly-hired finance chief, as
he fights to prevent Superin-
tendent Nina Marks from re-
leasinghimfromhispost.
Marks recommended to
School Board members April
8 that Pearlman not be hired
on permanently as director
of financial services. On Dec.
17, the 52-year-old St. George
Island resident was approved


by the board to replace Sam
Carnley, by a 3-1 vote, with
Teresa Ann Martin opposed
and David Hinton absent. As
part of that approval, Board
Chairman Jimmy Gander had
stipulated that a probationary
period apply to Pearlman's
hiring.
Marks did not speak at
last week's meeting, and did
not provide a reason for her
personnel decision. Because
Pearlman is still within the ini-
tial 97-day probationary win-
dow, the superintendent is not


required to show cause for his
dismissal.
Following a motion by Hin-
ton to vote on Marks' recom-
mendation,, with a second by
George Thompson, Pearlman
rose to address the board on
his own behalf.
"I've been in this position
for not very long," he said. "I
was approached by the su-
perintendent a week ago and
asked to resign. I was not told

At least 75 potential employ-
ers, from both the public and
private sectors, turned out last
week to learn about details of a
new federally-subsidized job pro-
gram that could offset nearly the
entire cost of hiring new work-
ers.
Among those in attendance at
the April 8 meeting at the court-
house annex in Apalachicola
were business people, such as
Ronnie Jackson, who operates
Carrabelle's ACE Hardware. He
said the new program might en-
able him to bring back a driver
position that he had to cut last


year when the economy soured.
County officials were on hand
as well, looking into filling five
positions with Parks and Recre-
ation through the Florida Back-
to-Work program.
Kim Bodine, who directs the
tri-county Gulf Coast Workforce
Board (GCWB) out of Panama
City, said Franklin County's
showing at the introductory ses-
sion was stronger than the turn-
out in Bay and Gulf counties.
She said that if the GCWB's
$5.9 million proposal to the state
to fund the program for the re-
gion is approved, then there will

County

introduces

re-entry tags

for residents

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Franklin County residents who
plan ahead will have a much easier
time returning to their homes follow-
ing a disaster than those who don't.
That's because the county's
emergency management office has
introduced a new color-coded "re-
entry tag" program to enable those
who have completed the necessary
paperwork ahead of time to move
quickly through checkpoints follow-
ing a natural disaster and mandatory
evacuation.
For those who don't have a re-en-
try tag, it could mean a lengthy wait
during a stressful time, compounded
by having to produce the required
identification and proof of residency
to law officers, when such paperwork
might not be at hand.
"If it can keep me from being
hassled, I'm all for it," said one St.
George Island woman, who togeth-
er with her husband stopped by the
emergency operations center Friday
to pick up their tag.
"It's better than having an M-16
pointed at you," her husband said.
The man brought the subject up,
as he obtained an orange tag from
Joyce Durham, the emergency op-
erations center's office manager, be-
cause he had harrowing memories
of having a rifle flashed in his face
when he tried to return to Panama
City Beach following Hurricane Opal

Special to the Times
The melodies and lyrics
of Rodgers and Hammer-
stein's "Oklahoma!" have
been part of America's
musical lexicon for over
six decades, ever since the
production first appeared
on Broadway.
The embodiment of our
nation's frontier spirit of
community, optimism and
patriotism that has made
"Oklahoma!" a sentimen-
tal favorite will sparkle
again on the Dixie Theatre
stage this weekend, Friday
and Saturday, April 16 and
17, at 7:30 p.m., and Sun-
day, April 18 at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $12 adults,
$10 students, and $5 for
children 12 and under. Call
670-8200 to order, or pur-
chase at the door one hour
before curtain.
The story takes place in
1906 in an Indian territory
of the American West dur-
ing the time when Oklaho-
ma was soon to be estab-
lished as a state. It tackles
class issues between the
farmers and the cowmen
in the still-developing, rug-
ged landscape of a state in
its infancy as characters
struggle to find hope, love


and the fulfillment of "the
American Dream."
Produced by The Pan-
handle Players, and di-
rected by Merel Young,
"Oklahoma!" is the story
of Laurey (Megan Lamb)
and the two rivals for her
affections: Curly, a cowboy
(Randy Mims), and Jud,
the hired farmhand (David
Bowen). A deadly love tri-
angle brews.
Meanwhile, another
troubled romance, this one
a little more comedic, goes
on between Will Parker
(Joe Shields), a cowboy re-
turning from a Kansas City
rodeo, and his intended
girlfriend, Ado Annie, who
just can't seem to say no
to other men. Womanizing
peddler Ali Hakim (Donnie
Denig) is the culprit who
has captured Ado Annie's
capricious attention while
Will has been at the rodeo,
thus setting up another
love triangle. Uh oh!
When "Oklahoma!"
opened on Broadway in
1943, it ran for 2,212 per-
formances, the longest
running musical of its
time and a record that re-
mained unbroken for 15
years until "My Fair Lady."
A smash box office hit,


"Oklahoma!" tickets were
highly prized. Then mayor,
Fiorello La Guardia called
regularly for tickets for
distinguished New York
visitors, Eleanor Roosevelt
brought all sorts of digni-
taries, and the Duke and
Duchess of Windsor sat in
the first-rowbalcony on re-
peated Saturday matinees.
It was also a send-off event
for many ordinary soldiers
on their way overseas dur-
ing World War II.
In 1993 it became the
first musical commemo-
rated by a U.S. postage
stamp.
With piano accompani-
ment by Bedford Watkins,
the story of love rivalries,
and the conflict between
ranchers and farmers
fighting over fences and
water rights, is made most
memorable by the show's
classic and unforgettable
score. You certainly will
leave the theatre with a
song in your heart.
The Panhandle Players'
production of "Oklahoma!"
is presented through spe-
cial arrangement with R &
H Theatricals, and is fund-
ed in part by the Franklin
County Tourist Develop-
ment Council.

decidedly not amused by
his rival in love. At right,

The poster girl for this
year's Apalachicola An-
tique and Classic Boat
Show is the "Miss Dody,"
a creation of Fred Sawyer
Jr., a renowned local boat
builder
The 2010 show, Friday
and Saturday, April 23-24,
is drawing near. Posters
are popping up all over
town and this year they


display a sleek pleasure
boat framed against the old
Apalachicola Bridge with a
ruggedly handsome man
at the helm.
The man is Fred Saw-
yer Jr., proprietor of Apala-
chicola's former Sawyer
Boat Works, shown with
the "Miss Dody" on her
maiden voyage circa 1970.
Sawyer's son, Fred-
die Buck Sawyer, said the
boat was his father's "rainy
day project" that occupied


much of his free time for
over two years.
The"MissDody,"named
for the boat builder's moth-
er, Dody Buck, was 22 feet
long and built of heart juni-
per that came from sawed
timber, not steamed bent
boards.
"It was one of my fa-
ther's little tricks. It made
the hull stronger," said
Sawyer.
Her fastenings were
formed from Monel, a high-


ly corrosion-resistant alloy
of nickel and copper, and
she had a six cylinder Grey
Marine engine.
Sawyer said most boat
builders would go to a
foundry to have the struts
and rudder fabricated for
a boat, but his father made
his own for the "Miss
Dody" using an acetylene
welder.
Sadly, the "Miss Dody"
was destroyed. Only the
memory of this beauti-


FKOM THE TOLLETTION OF FKED AND KITA 5AWYEK


ful craft, and a picture of
the sunny day when Fred
Sawyer Jr. launched her,
remain.
"She was very comfort-
able in a sea and seawor-
thy. She was fast for her


size, keen and sharp," said
Sawyer."Youcouldrunher
in a sea and she wouldn't
pound and beat like some
boats. She cut through the
water. She was special in
every way."

Property rights no shield for neighborhood polluters


* 'Y


Thursday, April l5, 2010


A4 | The Times


There are people in
our city and county who
burn garbage, plastic and
trash in an outside fire
pit almost nightly. Their
fires generate clouds of
smoke that leave clearly
defined layers of putrid THO
and noxious pollution.
The odors from the FOR T
smoke create a public Me
nuisance, but even more
important, the fires result in
serious health hazards.
The acrid smoke from
these garbage fires makes it
impossible to open bedroom
windows at night to capture
a cool breeze. The stench
permeates and lingers heavily
inside if a house window is
carelessly left open when the
garbage fire blazes. The putrid
smoke overwhelms clean
laundry left drying on an outside
clothes line. Unsuspecting
drivers suddenly can find
themselves in a dangerous fog at
local intersection crossings.
It is impossible to visit
outside with friends or passers-
by because the noxious smell


is so bad. Visitors
who come to town are
overwhelmed both at the
garbage smell and the
thoughtlessness of one
neighbor toward others.
Million dollar houses
UGHTS and condominiums
sit vacant, downwind
HE TIMES of the nightly burning
l Kelly rituals. Tourists and
residents alike who try
to enjoy a nightly walk are
appalled at the unhealthy and
unpleasant situation, which goes
unregulated for lack of a "no
burning" or mandatory garbage
pickup ordinance. The actions of
a few poison the air and the
living for all.
"Don't mess with my property
rights" is the excuse usually
given for the had behavior. "I can
do anything I want on my own
property!"
But what about the property
rights of those who live next
door and down the street and
throughout the neighborhoods
where hundreds must suffer
from the effects of the garbage
fires? What about the children


trying to sleep, especially those
with asthma or other diagnosed
breathing difficulties? How
about the elderly who must use
oxygen and others without air
conditioning who depend on
fresh air in their homes? Why
are their "property rights" not
considered when the noxious
garbage fires are allowed to
burn freely, seriously polluting
EVERYONE's property?
And what about the property
rights of homeowners who
find their yards fouled with the
feces of unleashed, untended
stray dogs and cats? Why are
unsupervised animals allowed
to menace regularly health-
walkers and bikers? Why must
some neighbors be subjected
to the incessant barking of
unsupervised dogs or feel unsafe
in their own yard because of the
threatening behavior of someone
else's wandering animal?
In Carrabelle, even roosters
are allowed to roam unhindered
from yard to yard, crowing
and popping at all hours. Why
should a "free-range" rooster
be allowed to keep anyone from


sleeping because of its constant
noise? And why must a child
be kept from playing in their
own yard because of the ugly
presence of animal waste left
by the unattended "pets" of
others?
Much has been made about
the failure to sell hundreds of
excess properties, which were
overbuilt greedily within our
local limits. I wonder if some of
the potential out-of-town buyers
visited during a garbage fire
evening and decided against
making an offer on a smoke-
surrounded second home.
I know residents who were
menaced by a stray pit bull and
chose not to get out of the safety
of their car. Some local citizens
fear for the well-being of their
grandchildren coming to visit
in such an unhealthy and even
hostile environment!
The city and the County
Department of Public Health
share responsibility for the
health, safety and well-being
of all citizens. The ignorance
and thoughtlessness exhibited
by the neighborhood garbage-


fire burners result in serious
environmental air pollution.
Burn garbage? Let pets roam
free? Those actions could be
criminal if someone sickens or
dies because of them.
According to Florida Statutes,
"386.01 Sanitary nuisance.
- A sanitary nuisance is the
commission of any act, by
an individual, municipality,
organization, or corporation,
or the keeping, maintaining,
propagation, existence, or
permission of anything, by
an individual, municipality,
Organization, or corporation,
by which the health or life of
an individual, or the health
or lives of individuals, may be
threatened or impaired, or by
which or through which, directly
or indirectly, disease may be
caused."
Why do we tolerate such
thoughtless, inconsiderate and
illegal behavior in our town?
Who will stop it and when?

Mel Kelly, a concerned
resident of Carrabelle, writes
frequently for the Times.

today.Wearefacedwithvery
seriousandunparalleled
decreasesaccordingto
themostrecentpopulation
growth numbers and a
current revenue estimating
shortfall. Unemployment
is almost 12 percent,
and the family budget is
being stretched to the
limit. Florida's robust and
resilient economy always
has produced unparalleled
growth in the past, and I am
convinced it will again in the
future. We cannot continue
to depend on stimulus
money from the federal
government to balance the
budget. With the beginning
of the new session, we need
a fresh bipartisan attitude
toward making fiscally
sound and responsible
decisions.
We need to re-prioritize
our spending in this state.
Our people pay their bills
each month and reprioritize


their spending
decisions based
on their incomes.
We have been
unwilling as a
legislature to take
a similar attitude
ARD ad re-prioritize
BRY expenditures that
al to might be good
imes public policy, but
do not meet our
current priority spending
requirements.
Our business climate
has diminished to the point
that many businesses have
closed their doors, adding to
ourunemployment.Ihave

properly and that will serve
all Floridians well.
We must protect
education in this process.
This will be the only
opportunity our children
have for a good education.
Our children are truly our
greatest assets. We cannot
let them down. Education
funding cannot wait; it must
be a priority!
We need to protect our
aging population because
we all have a moral
responsibility to do so. They
have brought us to this point,
and we must never lose
sight of how important they
are to Florida.
We must not have new
taxes in this very fragile
economy. Our people are
challenged to maintain the
level of taxes we currently


have. I will not consider new
taxes this session.
We must support
small counties and rural
communities. Many times,
they are affected very
differently by legislation
that is enacted. Changes in
the tax laws, and mandates,
have negative implications
for small counties. They
don't have economies of
scale like larger counties.
We must look at every piece
of legislation and determine
how it will affect job growth
and our business climate.

Our inability to properly
budget and operate this state
responsibly from fiscal
stand-point should not reflect
on our state employees.
My family's roots go
back six generations in
Florida agriculture, and
we have been involved
deeply in public service
for many years. We must
protect agriculture and
Florida business from the
effects of the EPA's new
stringent numeric nutrient
qualification criteria set for
all Florida water bodies.
This seriously will impact
Florida agriculture's and
business' ability to move
forward and be competitive.
I understand the rural
values and rural lifestyle we
have, and I am determined
toprotectthem.Iam
committed to being ve"
aggressive in protecting
Florida's agriculture and
businesses this session.
As legislators, we need
to approach our job with a
"servant's heart," knowing
and understanding why we
serve and who we serve. I
always have understood the
importance of the position
but never realized how
uniquely and directly what
we do in the legislature
touches the lives of our
people. This process has
become very personal to me.
Many times, opposition to
a bad bill is more important
than supportfora good one.
We need to stay vigilant in
this process to better serve
the needs of the people. This
process needs to be more
about serving the people and
less about serving the party.

DONN DUGHI | Florida Photographic Collection
The demonstrators in this photo, taken in Tallahassee on June 28, 1988,
were from Apalachicola and sought help from the Florida Cabinet to
prevent competitors from using machines to mechanically dredge for oysters.
Approximately 600 acres had been leased 30 years earlier by about a half-
dozen families, and two weeks earlier, the Cabinet had approved new state
rules that would enable owners of the leases to apply for state permits to
dredge for oysters. The Cabinet voted to investigate whether the state could
buy Apalachicola Bay leases.

As The Apalachicola and Carrabelle
Times approaches its 125th anniversary
in two weeks, we are reaching out to the
community to help us bring local history
alive for our readers.
A new feature on our Web site,
www.apalachtimes.com, is a photo
gallery, "Old Times," that showcases
photographs, some more than a
century old and some as recent as two
or three decades ago, for readers to
enjoy.
With more than 125 photos to start
and more coming in every day, The
Times has enlisted the support of the
Apalachicola Area Historical Society,


the Carrabelle Historical Society, the
chambers of commerce, history buffs
and our loyal readers to bring "Old
Times" to vivid life.
Readers are encouraged to submit
their favorite photos for posting, either
by e-mailing dadlerstein@starfl.com or
dropping by the office, 129 Commerce
St., at the corner of Commerce Street
and Avenue F to have their hard-copy
photos scanned and returned. It's
a great opportunity to preserve the
county's rich history and share its

There is a mountain
of research that shows a
direct connection between
parents' involvement in
their children's education
and their performance in
school. The more parent
involvement, the better
the children do in school.
But in some schools, the
word "parents" really
means "mom.
Research reveals
that when dads are
involved, their children
do better in school and
enjoy it, are half as likely
to have ever repeated a
grade, and grow up to be
higher performing and
more responsible adults.
And remember, father
involvement happens
whether the dad is
married, single, a stepdad,
or adoptive father. Being
involved helps dads
understand that they are
just as important to their
children as mom.

a reason and still have not
been told. Not having been
given a cause puts me in a
difficult position."
Pearlman provided a let-
ter from his Tallahassee at-
torney that contended that
because Pearlman was al-
ready a district employee
when he was promoted to
the $65,808 per year finance
position, the board was not
permitted to institute a sec-
ond probationary period.
"I needed to be given
cause. It's procedural, but
it'slegal,"arguedPearlman,
who holds a bachelor's from
Harvard College and a law
degree from New York Uni-
versity. "Even if they're pro-
cedural rules, they're still
laws.
Pearlman made a sec-
ond, more explosive argu-
ment for the board to con-
sider, that he was protected
by Florida's whistle-blower
statute and could not be dis-
missed from his job.
He said that on March 26
he had met with the school
district's Blue Cross/Blue
Shield representative to re-
view health insurance mat-
ters, including an ongoing
proposal from Roberts Ben-
efit Group which, if adopted,
would extend coverage to
school district retirees and
theirfamilies.Theboardhas
not acted on the proposal.
Pearlman said he did
not believe at the time
the school district had an
agent of record for its cur-
rent plan, but was told by
the Blue Cross/Blue Shield
representative that "there's
already an agent for health
care" and that it was Marks
Insurance Agency, owned by
Marks' husband.
"I just said that he's
not been approved (by the
board)," Pearlman said.
School Board Attorney
Barbara Sanders said Pearl-
man had indicated to the
board that he would not pur-
sue a whistle-blowing effort
if he were retained in his job.
"I don't know exactly what
Mr. Pearlman believes he's
uncovered," she said.
Both Marks and her at-
torney, Gordon Shuler, said
following the meeting that
they looked forward to the
board conducting an investi-
gation of the allegation.
"We're disappointed that
the allegations have been
made, but expect that an
investigation will show that
thesuperintendenthaddone
nothing wrong," Shuler said.
"I am confident that I
havenotviolatedthelawand
that the accusations are
without merit," Marks said.

S s obset nuttini meay

Pearlman gave an emo-
tional plea for the board to
consider the legality of his
dismissal. "I ask that if you
decide it's not legal to fire
me, you don't fire me," he


said. "I was coming to re-
ally like my position. I was
learning my job, and it was
important to me to cut the
fat out of our budget and
make our staff more effi-
cient.
"I was making a differ-
ence with young people,"
said Pearlman, who taught
social studies at the high
school earlier in the year,
and during basketball sea-
son did commentary for the
Seahawks on Oyster Radio.
When asked about the
possibility of returning
Pearlman to the class-
room, Marks said, "there is
no previous job." Pearlman
was transferred out of the
classroom just before he
was hired for the financial
services post.
Pearlman hinted at what
may have been further rea-
sons for Marks' decision,
noting that "I suspect my
management style was dif-
ferent than Mr. Carnley's.
I was not mean or disre-
spectful to any employees,
"I really respect this
institution, including the
superintendent," he said.
"I like the people, I like
getting out of bed every
day and going to work, and
I thought I'd be here 20
years, not 20 minutes."
Sanders said she had
spoken to the Panhandle
Area Educational Consor-
tium (PAEC) about having
itslaborattorneyhandlethe
matteronbehalfofFranklin
County. She said that while
she had not had a chance
to "fully brief the issue," it
was her initial opinion that
the statute that prevents a
duplication of probationary
periods does not apply in
Pearlman's case.
Pearlman said not only
teachers, but non-instruc-
tional employees, were gov-
erned by the statute, but
at least one school board
member said he did not see
it that way. "That statute
he's talking about is to pre-
vent a gimmick," said Hin-
ton, noting that Pearlman's
circumstances differ from
the intent of the law.
St. George Island resi-
dent Mason Bean spoke
on Pearlman's behalf. "I
know the value of putting
together a strong team,"
he said. "Jay is genuinely
concerned about kids and
saving money. I hope you'll
reconsider."
Sanders said she ex-
pected to speak to the
PAEC attorney last week,
and that the School Board
could hold a special meet-
ing prior to April 21, the
date on which Pearlman's


proThationary period dwou41-1
to table the motion, with
Martin opposed. Early this
week, the school district
scheduled a special meet-
ing for 6 p.m. Wednesday,
April 14.

He and his wife could not prove
they had a right to return to their
parents' condominium, and so were
escorted away at gunpoint, further
delaying their effort to make sure
everything was intact on the home
front.
Pam Brownell, director of the
emergency management office, and
her staff are planning a series of
public outreaches throughout the
county during the next two weeks to
educate people on the new program.
The system is designed to better
manage control of a post-hurricane
situation and lessen the possibility
of looting or other unwanted behav-
iors.
Brownell noted that a mandatory
evacuation can be called for Cat-
egory 2 storms and higher, and that
when all utilities are off, and flood-
ing is present, it is critical that law
enforcement officials control access
to areas that have been hit.
"It protects us, too," the St.
George Island homeowner said."It's
an inconvenience, but it's a good in-
convenience. In 2005, we had to call
our rental company to find out what
to do to just get on (the island)."

Word is expected soon on wheth-
er the proposal is among those
funded out of the $5.9 billion nation-
al program, which is paid for out
of monies targeted to the Tempo-
rary Assistance for Needy Families
(TANF) program.
"We don't know if we're approved
or not," Bodine said. "We've applied
to get in the queue at the state level,
and we're hoping to hear back by
the beginning of May."
The program is then expected to
have sufficient funds to run at least
through the end of September.
Because of its source, the pro-
gram zeroes in on hiring new em-
ployees who meet low-income re-
quirements, and who have a child 18
years of age or younger in the home
or are pregnant.
A household with only one mem-
her can have income no greater
than $21,660 for the last 30 days to
qualify for the program, while those
with two members have a maximum
of $29,140, with three members,
$36,620, and with four members
$44,100, with income maximums in-
creasing from there.

Rules for hirin
In her PowerPoint presentation,
Bodine outlined the specifies of the
program, which subsidizes about


each one representing a different
portion of the county. Blue tags
are for people who live west of the
Apalachicola River, while red are
for Eastpoint, yellow for Carrabelle,
and green for Lanark Village and to
the east, including Alligator Point.
The re-entry identification tags
are free, with one per household.
Residents must furnish a photo ID,
such as a driver's license, and proof
of residency, such as a utility bill,
voter's registration card, or "any-
thing that shows their name and
that they pay utilities at that ad-
dress," Durham said.
Forms can be filled out online at
www.franklinemergencymanage-
ment.com, after which the tag can
be picked up at the Emergency
Management Office.
The public meetings began Sat-
urday, when Brownell and her staff
met in the morning at Mission by
the Sea, for the Alligator Point
general membership meeting. On
Wednesday morning, they were on
St. George Island at the Jay Abbott
Fire House, 1200 Sea Pines Drive.
On Thursday, April 15 from 9 a.m.
to noon, emergency management
personnel will be at the Eastpoint
Adult Literacy Program at East-


point Mall, 29 Island Drive.
On Wednesday, April 21, also
from 9 a.m. to noon, they'll again be
on the island at the Jay Abbott Fire
House.
On Thursday, April 22, from 9
a.m. to noon and again from 1 to 3
p.m., Brownell and her staff will
hold a meeting at the Carrabelle
Senior Citizens Center, 201 NE 1st
St., at the corner of Avenue E
On Wednesday, April 28, from
9 a.m. to noon, they'll again be on
the island at the Jay Abbott Fire
House.
Their last scheduled outreach
meeting is set for Thursday, April
29, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Lanark
Village's Chillas Hall, 156-A Heffer-
nan Drive.

95 percent of an employee's wages
and benefits. The rules make clear
that an employee must have been
laid off prior to Dec. 1, 2009, to be
rehired under the program, and that
no other of a company's workers can
be laid off after a subsidized worker
is brought on.
"The government doesn't want
employers laying people off and then
going and hiring them under the sub-
sidy," she said. "That's the intent."
Employers with 10 or fewer em-
ployees are eligible for up to two po-
sitions, while those with 11 or more
can get up to five workers under the
program.
The government's rules for the
program stipulate that "no commis-
sioned positions or positions depen-
dent on tips" are eligible for subsidy.
In addition, subsidized employment
cannot involve work at or on a golf
course, aquarium, casino or other
gambling establishment, or swim-
ming pool. Bodine said she was not
sure why those these stipulations
were added.
Also, the subsidy is not available
for positions that pay more than the
equivalent of $40,000 per year; all
funds used for construction, main-
tenance or repair of a public work
must be made in the United States,
and any employees selected for sub-
sidized positions cannot be related
to the owners of the business.

vidual who is in the immediate fam-

father, stepmother, stepson, step-
daughter, stepbrother, stepsister,
half brother, or half sister.
"It is a problem in small commu-
nities," Bodine said.
The GCWB is about to select a
staffing firm to handle the entire
tri-county program, Bodine said,
with recruitment of employees to be
handled locally, from an office within
Franklin County. She said the GCWB
also is looking to hire a case manag-
er for the county.
Bodine said applications from
employers to take part in the pro-
gram will be filled on a first-come,
first-served basis, so time is of the
essence.

the spot of Apalachicola's newest
tourist attraction, a geocache hidden
by "Visit Florida." The name of the
new attraction is the "Apalachicola
Star."
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure
hunting game played throughout the
world by adventure seekers equipped
with GPS devices. The basic idea is to
locate hidden containers, called geo-
caches, outdoors and then share the
details of your hidden treasure online
so others can find them using a GPS
receiver to receive signals from the
global position satellites maintained
by the US military.
According to the online posting for

The Apalachicola Star is a water-
proof container about three inches
long, containing only a sheet of pa-
per. You can get more information

Campbell said is a longtime
nuisance in the neighbor-
hood. The pair was headed
toward the home ofLacey's
cousin, GaryMillender.
Campbell said she saw
the goat attempt to butt the
bear and she demonstrated
the bear rising up menac-
ingly. The animals then dis-
appearedbehindtwoparked
vehicles and she went back
tobedthinkingTammieFay
hadescaped.
Thenextmorningaround
5 a.m.,herroommateDawn
Bailey, went to her car and
found Tammie Pay dead on
the ground with her throat
torn out and lacerations to
her face and head.
"She's down. The bear
got her," Dawn called out to
Campbell.
Lois Dean, who lives next
door to Campbell, came and
dragged the goat to Camp-
bell's lot. "I didn't want my
daughter to see it," she said.
"If she'd seen it, she wouldn't
have gone to school."
A stain of blood marked
the spot where the goat was
first discovered.
On the scene at around
10 a.m. were County Com-
missioner Cheryl Sanders
and Carrabelle City Com-
missioner Cal Allen.
"They called me and, as
their representative, I came
to see what I can do to help,"
Sanders said. "I'm just go-
ing to let the process take
its course. I'd prefer not to
comment until we get all of
the facts."
Allen said the neighbor-


for business reasons.
After the April 2009 inci-
dent, an FWC officer wrote
in his report that he "gave
them a warning about leav-
ing the dumpster and food
accessible to bears; they
said they have contacted
the service provider about a
bearresistantdumpsterbut
it would cost $100 extra per
month.Mr.Fitzgeraldsaidhe
might be able to build some-
thing on lid to keep bears
out.Capt.(Craig)Duvalalso
spoke with the juvenile who
was reportedly chased by a
bear (Josh) and his mother
and both stated he had not
been chased, that he saw a
bear chase abeagle dog, not
him; sow and cubs reported
in area accessing dumpster,
but did not chase a person;
Duval gave her (Fitzgerald)
a warning about leaving the
dumpster and food acces-
sible to the bears."
This incident is followed
by a lengthy list of com-
plaints by residents and
warnings by FWC officers.
The residents of Avenue
H are highly disturbed
about the events of Tuesday
morning. The say they had
ceased reporting problems
to FWC because they re-
ceived no help and were ac-
cused of lying.
Bambi Kever, a neigh-
bor of the Campbells and
Fitzgeralds, has also re-
ported aggressive actions
by roving bears.
"A lady from Fish and
Wildlife in Panama City
came into my house and
called me a liar," Kever said.
"She said bears don't act
like that. She said they don't

ofat e e alsda
was told that she did not
have the right to defend her
property against a bear. She
said it was because "Men
aendan e dl er.BT
need to have an open sea-
son.Ilived here all my life. I
canrememberbearhunting
,,
with my daddy.
Warwick said FWC is
willing to work with the
residents of Avenue H if
they will meet the wildlife
officers halfway. He said the
dumpster continues to be
unsecured and that install-
ing an electric fence around
it would help to solve bear
problems in the neighbor-
h d
oo
"If they can afford a
dumpster, they can afford to
secure it," Warwick said.


"I've had man calls. Th dra 6

Street. A city worker comes and

hood had along history of
bear problems. "I've had
many calls," he said. "They
drag garbage down to the
end of First Street. A city
worker comes and cleans
it up every few weeks. It's
dirty diapers mostly."
Ron Copely, a bear spe-
cialist for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), ex-
amined the scene 'lliesday
morning as he prepared his
report. He agreed there was
a long history of bear prob-
lems in the neighborhood,
but said many dogs also
roam the area.
William Key and Albert
Floyd, officers with county
animal control, also exam-
ined the scene. Adam War-
wick, FWC wildlife biologist
and bear specialist, said
small deer and other ani-
mals in that size range are
occasionally killed by bears.
"We are going to go ahead
and set a trap for that bear,"
Warwick said.
He said it was unusual
for a bear to kill an animal
and leave it. "Normally it
would drag the goat away to
eat it. If you found it, it would


behackinthosewoods,"he
said.
Campbell said she be-
lieves the bear did not take
the goat away because it
was startled by a passing
vehicle.
In a telephone interview,
Carrabelle Commissioner
Jim Brown, who also visited
the scene, saidhe was asked
by the neighbors whether
they had the right to defend
themselves."Ithinkwehave
a constitutional to defend
ourselves," he said. "I never
meant to indicate they had a
right to kill a bear and I hope
nobody thinks that."
A record maintained by
FWC of bear complaints in
the area documents a long
history of human-bear con-
flicts on Avenue H.
In April 2009, sheriff's
deputies were called to
the same site when Minnie
Millender Fitzgerald, who
lives several houses east,
reported children being
chased by a bear. The of-
ficers chased the bear into
the woods.
According to the re-
port, Donnie Fitzgerald,
Minnie's husband, had
received technical assis-
tance with bear problems

Leigh Redmond, shown with her parents

Special to the Times
The Lady Seahawks
traveled to Port St. Joe
April 7 and gave the perfor-
mance of the season thus
far,
The Seahawks swung
first and made it known
that they had come to play
ball. Eighth-grader Gracyn
Kirvin started it off with
a single, while freshman
classmates Chena Segree
and Anna Lee hit doubles
to score the first two runs
of the game. The defense
held the Seahawks to a 2-0
lead until the bottom of the
fourth inning when a Tiger
Shark single and an error
scored two runs.
We played great softball
all night, but they did, too.
We had things under con-
trol until a couple of hits by
St. Joe and errors by our
defense allowed the game
to become tied. Shortly
after, power hitter Katie
Gardner took one deep to
centerfield on our starting
pitcherShelbyShiver.This
put St. Joe ahead for the
first time, 3-2, during the
fifth inning.
The Seahawks capital-
ized in the sixth inning af-


ter a couple of mistakes by
St. Joe and a stolen base by
Degree make it 3-3. St. Joe
did the same by scoring a
run off of two errors to re-
gain the lead, 4-3.
We had the opportuni-
ties to take this game. It
just didn't happen for us,
and Port St. Joe escaped
with another district win
against our Seahawks. We
made some errors defen-
sively and maybe a couple
of bad decisions to help this
one slip away, but it defi-
nitely was a hard-fought
game. The girls learned
something important that
night, and we will do our
homework to be ready for
the district playoffs with
Port St. Joe next Tuesday
night.
The next district game
with West Gadsden on Fri-
day wasn't so tough. It was
also "Senior Night" to rec-
ognize our two Seahawk
veterans, Kendyl Hardy
and Leigh Redmond. All in
all, it was a fun and memo-
rable game for the seniors
who were allowed to play
in any position that they
wantedtotry.
I have had the oppor-
tunity to be around these
girls for three years, and


SOCCER (AMP


they are both very special
to this team. We wish them
success in all of their future
endeavors. The Seahawks
put this one away 14-0 and
still maintained a show of
class.
The Seahawks traveled
to Quincy next to face Mun-
roe on Munroe and hope-
fully win for the first time at
theirfield.Weweresuccess-
ful in this journey. This was
a positive game for the girls
and definitely kept our feel-
ings high among the team.
Starting pitcher Shiver
has been playing great for
the Seahawks. This has al-
lowed our defense to make
plays and concentrate on
the hitting. We are trying to
focus on our challenges and
make better decisions. The
Seahawks won 7-5 against
Munroe on the road.
The next two games for
the Seahawks, all away, are
against Godby April 15 and
North Florida Christian
April l6. These are the right
games to prepare the girls
fordistricts.Wejusthaveto

and Cole Lee 1-for-4 with one
RBI.
In the second game, senior
Dustin Putnal was the winning
pitcher, helping his cause as he
went 3-for-3 with two RBIs.
The Seahawks banged out 10
hits, committed two errors and
left just one runner on base. Ca-
den Barber was 2-for-3 at the
plate, with three RBIs, and Zack
Howze 1-for-3.


The Seahawks varsity baseball
team won a doubleheader at West
Gadsden April 8, triumphing in
the opener 15-2 and then winning
the nightcap 18-7.
Sophomore Zack Armistead DU
pitched four innings in the opener' PU
and struck out eight, giving up
only one hit.
The Seahawks had seven hits, leav-
ing four runners on base and committing
five errors. Seth Rogers went 2-for-4 with
a triple and a single, while Jason Thomp-
son was 1-for-4 with two runs batted in


The Seahawks travel to Liberty Coun-
ty Friday and are home Saturday begin-
ning at 5 p.m. against Bay High. On Tues-
day, April 20, they travel to Arnold and on
Friday, April 23, to Bay High.

On March 24 and 25,

"Fairy Tale Courtroom" by Dana
Proulx. In Act I, Mr. B.B. Wolf,
played by Bobby Kilgore, was
put on trial for various crimes.
The court was run by the in-
competent judge I.L. Hangum,
played by Dylan Lance. His
secretary, played by Jill Diesel-
horst, and the bailiffs, played by
Tyanna Townsend and Natasia
Robinson, were the ones who
kept order in the court.

Jackson Copley, also appeared
when he heard that they want
"orders" in the court. The jury
was made up of the audience.
During the first performance
and second performances the
wolf was found guilty. Nobody,
it seems, bought the argument

Well, you really missed out
if you didn't get to Wednes-
day night's Bingo for the Bus!
There was a nice group, lots of
fun and, to go along with your
coffee, we had a large batch
of Carol Dietz's world famous
sugar cookies. Yum, yum! So
try and join us on Wednesday LANARK NEWS
nights at Chillas Hall. Doors ]im Welsh
open at 5 p.m.; bingo starts at
6:30 p.m. Hope to see you.
At last Thursday's lunch at the Senior
Center, not many knew that Inez Bowen had
passed away until they saw the flowers at her
place at the table. We will miss her a lot.
Hope you marked Saturday, April 17 on
your calendar. That's the day for the big 8 a.m.
yard sale, low country boil, and auction. Along
with that we will have an oyster bar, 50/50,
and a chance on the boat. Oysters are $10 a
dozen. Shrimp will be in the low country boil.
All of this will happen at Sacred Heart of Je-
sus Church, 2653 U.S. Highway 98, in Lanark
Village. See ya there! Music by Ron Vice.
Our annual Riverfront Festival is coming
up, Saturday and Sunday, April 24 and 25.
Food, craft booths, sand sculpture, and fun,
fun, fun. Saturday from 10 a.m. and Sunday
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We still have coffee Monday through Satur-
day, 8:30 to 11 a.m. at Chillas Hall. Come over
and enjoy a cup or two, and sometimes there
are goodies to go with it. While you're there,
maybe you will sign up to serve it one day a
DetkhaTffee is still only 30 cents a cup! Imag-
The Knights of Columbus Council #1648
will have a booth again, and take part in, the
Relay for Life. Next Thursday, on April 22,
they will have a benefit bingo for the Relay for
Life. It starts at 6 p.m. at the church hall at St.
Patrick's Catholic Church in Apalachicola.
Be kind to one another. Check in on the
sick and housebound, and keep smiling. You
won't feel any better, but everyone else will
wonder what you're up to!
Until next time, God Bless America, our
troops, the poor, homeless, and hungry.

Meet Merlin!
He is one of three male

is approximately three
months old and very sweet

be a big boy so will need to
go to a home with plenty of
room to run. Come by the Adoption Center to meet Merlin
and his brothers. One of them might be just the pup you've
been waiting for.
Volunteers are desperately needed to socialize Merlin and
all the other dogs and cats. We are always looking for
people willing to bring one of our animals into their home
to be fostered for various needs. Any time you can spare
would be greatly appreciated.

This week is National
Library Week, the American
Library Association theme is
"Communities thrive @ your
library." THE LI
The Apalachicola Caty
Municipal Library is
committed to helping this
community thrive in whatever
way it can. Although we are small
and independent, we hope that the
community will find value in the
services we provide.
Books, new and old, are
available to be checked out by any
member of the community. We
even offer temporary cards for
snowbirds, visitors and guests in
our community. Because we are
not part of the Franklin County
Public Library system your "card"
with us is only for this library, but
you might be surprised by what we
have available. Patrons check out
bestsellers, classics and everything
in between. We have current issues
of donated magazines, everything
from "Garden and Gun" to "Opera
News." Once the issues are over
three months old, we put them out in
our "free box" outside.


Four public computers,
soon to be six, are available
free to anyone who walks in
the door, no library card is
RARY required. A time limitation
eene of 30 minutes is only if other
patrons are waiting. You can
print from the computers for
15 cents per page. Copy and fax
services are also available. Faxes
cost $2.50 inside the 850 area code,
and $3 outside 850. Incoming faxing
is now available (fax number 850-
653-1350) for $2.50, with a 15-cent
charge for each additional page.
We carry "The Wall Street
Journal," "Tallahassee Democrat"
delivered daily, and the weekly
"Apalachicola Times." We have
carried "USA Today," but it comes a
day late, so we have dubbed it "USA
Yesterday." We may not be renewing
the subscription unless patrons
request it. So much is now available
online.
Tuesday, April 13, was also
"National Library Workers Day;" its
slogan "Libraries Work Because We
Do." This is true of the Apalachicola
library as much as it is for the large
library systems with many branches


and hundreds of employees. We are
experiencing a bit of a personnel
crisis. We do not currently have
any "Work Force" staff. We are
currently looking for part-time staff
eligible for this program through
NCBA. For information on these
positions, and to apply please call
Jeanine Law at 927-4897, or see
me at the library. You must be
more than 55 years old and have
no current income except Social
Security or other government
income. Staff positions are for AM
or PM shifts, 20 hours per week.
Training is gently provided, and the
job is really not high-stress.
It being tax day, I should also
mention that we will continue to
have IRS Tax forms available. We
have lots of copies of the usual
forms, with instruction manuals
for 1040s, but we also have a binder
of more unusual forms, and an
internet link on each computer to
the IRS forms Web site. Extension
forms are ready for you on the
circulation desk.

Apalachicola Municipal Library.

We left her with Teresa in
Port St. Joe and hurried to
our appointment.
We discussed how easy
it would be to find this little
girl a good home because
she was very young and
small. We've fostered bea-
gles, labs and even a Yorkie
in the last couple of years
and found great homes for
each of them.
The next day we took
her to our vet, Dr. Fulmer,
and found she had no mi-
crochip. She was a bit
underweight but healthy,
about 3 months old, mostly
Boston terrier, and despite
her new haircut, just joyful
in her new surroundings.
The three Ilardi dogs had
found her to be a jolly play-
mate and had given her a
place to sleep on our bed.
I think we tried to find a
family for JoJo, but I can't
really remember doing so.
It was as if from the very
first she was our fourth for-
ever dog and we were her
forever family.

Special to the Times

The morning began as
we headed toward Panama
City for a doctor's appoint-
ment. We when stopped
alongside of the road in
St. Joe Beach to change
drivers, we were greeted
by the oddest looking little
dog who came running
to us, across Highway 98,
from the beach.
The puppy frisked
around us begging to be
noticed. She was scruffy,
and matted with sand
spurs, but her smile was
irresistible and her tail
was wagging constantly. It
was hard to tell which end
of her was happiest.
I picked her up and
my hands were instantly
bloody from the sand spurS
on her tummy. We asked
and found a young man
who claimed she was his
dog, but he didn't know how
old she was, her sex and he
hadn't given her a name. I

PHOTOS BY PATTY KULKK | Special to the Times
Parker Mock and Ca'Layia Jones on slide at new
pre-K playground.
What grown up doesn't remember school recess?
Now, the Pre-K students at the Franklin County
Learning Center have something to make their recess a
lot more fun: a new playground. The children slip down
the shiny new slide made for three, and swing high and
low on the swings, make music with the drums, and run
with excitement and joy to experience it all.
Our Pre-K children learn through so many things at
our school and the arrival of this new playground has
opened up a whole new world offun and learning.
We would like to give special thanks to the
Franklin County School Board for the funds and to the
maintenance workers who put in the hours of setting it
all up. Together, we are making the difference in the life
of each child. Thank you.
