County to lease Chapman to doctor


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
After hearing objec-
tions from Apalachicola
library supporters, Frank-
lin County commissioners
Tuesday morning voted
unanimously to lease the
historic Chapman Building
to Apalachicola cardiolo-
gist Dr. Shezad Sanaullah
for use as a medical office.
Sanaullah submitted
the only bid for a lease, af-
ter he first requested use
of the property at a May 17


commission meeting. At
that time, he said his Apala-
chicola offices were threat-
ened by a lack of space and
constant accumulation of
water in the parking lot,
which has damaged equip-
ment. He said a severe de-
cline in reimbursements cut
into the practice's income.
"Being a doctor in a ru-
ral community is a privi-
lege to me, but you've got to
keep the lights on," he said
last month.

War off our shores


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
- he story of the Empire
l Mica and her fiery
_ destruction off Cape
San Blas is widely known, but
a new translation and a visi-
tor from across the big pond
have shed some light on the
human face of a tragedy that
took place 69 years ago next
Wednesday.
In Sept. 2010, Roderick
"Rod" McIlraith Jr., came to
Florida looking for traces of
his father, Chief Officer Rod-
erick McIlraith who died on
the Empire Mica.
For most of his life, Rod
believed his father died some-
where off the coast of Argen-
tina.
In 2009, at age 59, he mar-
ried for the first time. His
bride Denise was a com-
puter buff. One afternoon,
Rod brought home a friend
who wanted to learn about
the Internet.


Denise typed Rod's name
into Google, an online search
engine, and what popped
up on the monitor surprised
them all. The very first hit
was a list of the crew mem-
bers who served on the Em-
pire Mica, on an excellent
webpage created by Gordon
Steele at http://homepage.
eircom.net/-gordonsteele/.
A year later, Rod and De-
nise set off on their first trip
to the states in search of the
Empire Mica, accompanied by
three friends: David and An-
nachristina Smith, and Barba-
ra Croydon, three friends who
visit the U.S. every year.

County Girl Scouts rock


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
Girl Scout Troop 200
is growing, glowing and
making us proud.
From humble
beginnings, with only
11 members in 2010,
the troop has grown to
32 members including
Daisies in kindergarten
and first grade; Brownies
in second and third
grades; and Junior Scouts
in the fourth and fifth
grades.
Leaders are Heather
Friedman and Courtney
Alford for Daisies, B.J.
Terhune for Brownies
and Brooke Linane for
Juniors.
Troop leader Terhune
said she expects several
scouts to become Cadets
at the beginning of the
next school year and
continue to work with
Linane.


The troop, which
meets in Apalachicola,
also has members from
Carrabelle, Eastpoint and
St. George Island.
"Technically, we are
a group, and not a troop,
because we have Juniors,
Daisies and Brownies
and not just one level,"
Terhune said. "We hope
to recruit a couple more
leaders. Our troop has
grown so much, and that
is wonderful, but we need
committed leaders who
are willing to help these
awesome girls."
Scouts have been busy
this year with several
projects. Scout Troop
200 sold 3,500 boxes of
Girl Scout cookies this
year. "That's a box of
cookies for every man,
woman and child in
Apalachicola," Terhune
said.
What did they do
with the cash from this


triumph?
Last month, they made
a two-night camping trip
to Callaway Gardens,
in Pine Mountain, Ga.
and stayed in cabins
at Franklin Delano
Roosevelt State Park, at
Warm Springs, Ga. They
also donated $100 to the
Franklin County Humane
Society.
Many of the girls
received prizes and
awards for their
extravagant sales
success.
Top salesmen for
the troop were Ella
Friedman, who sold
450 boxes and Brooke
Martina, who sold 400.
Alyssa Martina, Meredith
Alford, Gillian Terhune
and Becca Willis all sold
over 200 boxes. Lauren
Conway, who joined the
troop during the last week
of the sale, sold 100 boxes
in seven days.


Earlier this month, the
girls and their families
celebrated the end of
this very successful year
with a bridging ceremony
and refreshments at
the Chapman Botanical
Gardens in Apalachicola.
A bridging ceremony
marks the end of
the scout year and
acknowledges girls who
will pass from one level
to the next. The girls
each received a star pin
commemorating their
year of scouting.
Franklin County's
other Girl Scout Troop
333, disbanded at the end
of the last school year
because the leader moved
out of the county. Troop
200 wanted to expand this
year and this ceremony
welcomed six scouts who
now attend meetings with
Troop 200.
After the ceremony,
Junior Scouts joined

Linane for a sleepover
at her St. George Island
beach house.
Those who wish
to volunteer, and
parents who want more
information or wish
to enroll a daughter
in scouting, can call
Terhune at 670-1150.
There is a $12


registration fee, however,
parents unable to pay can
apply for an Opportunity
Grant and the fee will
be waived. Uniforms are
simple and not required
for participation.

Bordt lawyer plans to challenge competency


By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
The newly-appointed public de-
fender for accused murderer Mari-
anne Bordt said last week he plans
to challenge his client's competency
to stand trial when a formal hearing
on the matter is held next month.
C. Andrew Thomas, chief assis-
tant public defender for the 2nd Ju-
dicial Circuit of Florida, said follow-
ing a preliminary hearing last week
in Apalachicola that he and two psy-
chologists hired by the defense had
a chance last month to visit Bordt,
72, at the Florida State Hospital in
Chattahoochee.
Bordt, accused of murdering
her grandson Jan. 4,2010 by drown-
ing him inside a vacation home on
St. George Island, has been held
in Chattahoochee for the last six
months. She faces first-degree mur-
der charges, and the death penalty,
for killing 5-year-old Camden Hiers,
from Roswell, Ga., while the boy was
on vacation with his grandparents.
The grandfather, Heinz Bordt,
has not been implicated in the
murder and has since returned to
the family's home in Nufringen,
Germany, coming back to Franklin
County only to testify at the Febru-
ary 2010 grand jury hearing.


DAVID ADLERSTEIN I The Times
Marianne Bordt's public defender, C. Andrew Thomas, left, and Robin
Myers, the assistant state attorney, confer before the June hearing.


On Dec. 13, 2010, Circuit Judge
Angela Dempsey ruled, after hear-
ing testimony from three mental
health experts as to Bordt's emo-
tional state and knowledge of the
American judicial system, the Ger-
man national should be handed over
to the Florida Department of Chil-
dren and Families for competency
restoration at the state hospital.
The June 13 case management
hearing at the Franklin County
Courthouse gave Dempsey a
chance to review a confidential
report from state hospital officials
that indicated Bordt was in a po-
sition to understand the criminal
justice proceedings and assist her


legal team in her defense.
Other than concern about fit-
ting a hearing into their schedules,
neither Robin Myers, the assistant
state attorney, nor Thomas object-
ed to a formal competency hearing.
Both said they plan to ask the same
North Florida psychologists who
testified at the December hearing
- Gregory Prichard for the pros-
ecution, and Harry McLaren and
Ronda Harrison-Spoerl for the de-
fense - to examine Bordt and ren-
der opinions at the hearing, slated
for 10:30 a.m. on July 26.
Thomas, who on March 17 was
assigned to replace Maria Ines Su-
ber as Bordt's public defender, said


that in advance of formal opinions
from the psychologists, he is pre-
pared to argue his client continues
to lack competence for trial.
He said his position was based
on having witnessed, along with
psychologists, her "actual state"
during their recent visit to Chatta-
hoochee.
"Language will be an issue,"
Thomas said, noting the written
materials being used for Bordt's
competency restoration are in Eng-
lish and suggesting they posed a
problem in providing the German
national with sufficient understanding.
The attorney also said space
constraints at the state hospital
may have contributed to officials
wanting to have Bordt declared
competent for trial and returned to
the Leon County Jail.
At the December 2010 hearing,
Myers had argued unsuccessfully
that competency restoration could
be handled at the Leon County Jail,
where Bordt would be closer to the
state-appointed translator that she
requires for each aspect of the judi-
cial process.
Thomas declined comment on
whether he believed Bordt now
possessed the ability to assist in her
own defense. "That's for the experts
to answer," he said.


SACRED HEART HOSPITAL ON THE GULF


L2.4/7 EMERGENCY CARE

OUR SHORES from page Al


a 61' beam, was small by
supertanker standards,
but large for the 1940s. The
crew loved her. She was just
11 months old and featured
an early form of air condi-
tioning, a luxury few sea-
men had experienced.
Armed with a half-dozen
deck guns, she was travel-
ing from Baytown, Texas
to Key West carrying about
11,200 tons of kerosene. Al-
though the U.S. government
downplayed the possibility
of German U-boats in the
gulf, sailors knew they were
there and dangerous.
Capt. Hugh Bentley's or-
ders were to run during the
day and hide at night, stay-
ing in shallow water to avoid
trouble. U-boats required
60' of water to maneuver
and, more important, to sub-
merge. Without sufficient
depth, they were vulnerable
to attack by deck-mounted
guns and airplanes.
Bentley, 70, a retired sea-
man called back into ser-
vice, intended to dock in ei-
ther St. Andrews or St. Joe
Bay on the evening of June
28, but the draft of the Mica
was too deep to enter either
safe haven.
So Bentley was forced to
make a run for it, crossing
the open gulf.
Three days earlier, U-
Boat 67, nicknamed "Raid-
er," under the command of
27-year-old Kapitanleuten-
ant Gunter Mueller-Stock-
heim began patrolling the
coast of Gulf and Franklin
counties.
Raider was a Type IXC,
the largest of three designs
among the 25 German U-
boats that operated in the
gulf during 1942 and 1943.
She was 250' long, 22' wide,
weighed 1,120 tons and car-
ried 22 torpedoes and 52
men.
Her size gave her the
capacity to hold more fuel
and supplies than most sub-
marines of the era, so she
could operate for months at
a time without returning to
a base for refueling.
Although American lead-
ers suppressed the fact to
avoid panic, there were as
many as 20 U-boats operat-
ing at any given time in the
gulf during the first half of
World War II.
The U-boats' job was to
cut the flow of oil carried by
tankers from ports in Texas
and Louisiana and prevent
military hardware and sup-

plies from reaching Europe.
The U-boats prowling the
gulf effectively cut off the
U.S. oil and gas supplies to
Europe for the first half of
the war, sending 56 vessels
to the bottom of the gulf.
Raider sailed out of Lori-
ent in Nazi-occupied France
in May 1942, and after cross-
ing the Atlantic, sank the
Nicaraguan ship Managua
off Key West on June 16.
Mueller then headed for
the northern gulf. This was
his fifth war patrol and was
to be his most successful.
In all, he would attack and
damage or sink eight mer-
chant marine vessels car-
rying a total of almost 45,000
tons of cargo.

'Cat and mouse
games'
A comprehensive web-
site dealing with U-boats,
created by retired U.S.
Navy Capt. Jerry Mason,
http://uboatarchive.net, dis-
plays Mueller's log includ-
ing a detailed account of the
Mica's destruction.
Mason has translated
this and a number of other
documents from the origi-
nal German.
On June 20, Raider at-
tacked but failed to sink the
Norwegian vessel Nortind
near New Orleans. He fled
when the ship signaled to
shore with floodlights.
Mueller then worked his
way east following what the
Germans correctly believed
was a shipping route. His
intended destination was
Cape San Blas where he
planned to lie in wait for
cargo vessels.
The trip was dogged
with difficulty. Raider's
communication equipment
failed. There was often fog
and rain, and other times
he remained submerged
because, as the log reads,
"nights bright as day and a
dead calm sea" left Raider
vulnerable to aircraft. The
signal from the sounding
equipment was so distorted
it was all but useless. Few
ships were spotted during
the passage.

found nothing the last two
nights I ascribe to the bad
visibility," Mueller wrote.
"The traffic must be there!
Nothing is to be seen, as far
as the eye can see. Since
nothing was met during the
advance to the east, it is log-
ical to assume that if traffic
is in fact evading to the east,
it moves to the north just
offshore."
On June 25, Raider was
spotted by an aircraft that
attempted to bomb the U-
boat. "I am angry that I was
seen after all. Will remain
submerged until darkness,"
Mueller wrote.
When Raider reached
Cape San Blas, her loneli-
ness came to an end.
The ship lay submerged
off the cape during the
day, watching through a
periscope, and surfaced
at night. Surfacing was

The mayor and mayoress of Cheddar visit Arcadia Bellows circa 1945.


necessary to renew the
ship's supply of air and re-
charge the batteries. When
on the bottom, the engines
were shut down to conserve
fuel. Mueller found that be-
low 150', the temperature
was comfortable.
The silent stalker
watched the fishing fleet
and sailboats come and go
and, on one occasion, saw a
tug boat towing a tanker.
Mueller sized her up for
an attack but spared her.
"I let them go because,
for a torpedo, the case is
hopeless, and I do not want
to disturb the apparently
favorable area for me with
artillery," he wrote.
On June 28, Mueller saw
what he believed was anoth-
er U-boat surface near his
lair. He speculated it could
be Korvettenkapitan Wolf
Henne in U-boat 157, not
knowing Henne's boat had
been sunk two weeks ear-
lier in the Keys and Henne
was dead.
Problems with the radio
kept Mueller from contact-
ing the other ship directly.
He came closer to investi-
gate.
In his log he wrote, "Now
it is recognized as a U-boat,
resembling a German type
IX boat. Can not be recog-
nized with certainty howev-
er, therefore, to clarify and,
if necessary, attack dived.
Cat and mouse games have
no purpose."

'Two hits after
67 seconds'
At 5:53 a.m. on the morn-
ing of June 29, Raider sur-
faced again. A brilliant full
moon hung in a cloudless
sky. Mueller noted there
was summer lightning.
At 6:25, Mueller spotted
the Empire Mica and at
6:50, he fired on her.
"A shadow, initially as-
sessed as two small (ves-
sels), is an approaching
tanker with prominent
bridge and rear superstruc-
ture," he wrote in his log.
"From the type and size
estimate like 'British Unity'
8,407 GRT (gross register
tonnage), armed. Enemy
(tanker) zigzags with long
legs.
"It (the night) is very
bright, but I hope, he does
not recognize too much,
bow wave is already evi-
dent. Initiated the shot. Tar-
get (is so close) it barely fits
in the optic. Two hits after
67 seconds, center and aft
20 meters. High flash, tank-
er burns immediately over
entire length. Sags in the
middle bow and stern lift,"
Mueller wrote.
Aboard the Empire Mica,
all hell broke loose. Most of
the 48 crew members were
asleep below decks in air
conditioned comfort. It is
believed all the survivors
were either on deck or
on their way up when the
torpedoes struck.


Survivors recounted the
fire damaged the rigging for
the lifeboats, which could
not be lowered normally.
Bentley ordered McIlraith
and Ronald Mowatt to board
a lifeboat and free it. With
both men in the boat, the
ropes holding the lifeboat
burned through, and she
was cast adrift. McIlraith
was thrown into a fiery sea,
and disappeared. Mowatt,
who could not swim, clung
to the seat of the lifeboat.
Mowatt managed to get
the lifeboat forward in order
to rescue three or four men
huddled against the break
of the forecastle head with
flames all round them.
The lifeboat was rowed
toward the stern of the ship.
Although they could see
their shipmates struggling,
they were unable to rescue
them because the fire was
so intense. Only 14 men,
including the captain, were
saved. One man later died
of burns.

'Has the morning
paper got here yet?'
Willie Fred and Rebecca
Randolph and Louise Pend-
leton had been fishing off-
shore on the 41' Sea Dream
and drinking beer. They
were heading back in with
Pendleton sleeping on deck
when the explosion awoke
her. She came below to ask
the others if they had heard
it. They told her it must be
some kind of military test.
When they reached the
Apalachicola dock, two girls
drove up and shouted that
a ship had been torpedoed.
The women came ashore
and Randolph went for help,
intending to head back out.
The attack quickly
caught the city's attention.
Elgin Wefing, the Coast
Guard commander of port,
commandeered the Count-
ess, a pleasure craft belong-
ing to Dick Heyser because
his own boat, the Sinbad,
was in dry dock.
Wefing and Coast Guards-
man Will "Mac" McCormick
headed for the blaze, with
Belton Tarantino and Hey-
ser aboard. The heat was
so intense it was hours be-
fore they could approach
the tanker. They circled the
inferno looking for survivors
as Mueller watched, sub-
merged nearby.
According to his log, a
second U-boat was also
submerged on the scene.
The identity of this boat
is uncertain, but it might
have been one spotted by
a Mr. Thigpen earlier in the
month during an unevent-
ful excursion to St. George
Island aboard the pleasure
boat Sadie J. Other mem-
bers of the party scoffed
at Thigpen's story, but he
insisted he saw the subma-
rine surface in the gulf and
ducked behind the dunes
for fear of being shot.
The Sea Dream joined


the Countess near the Mica.
Randolph steered while
John Hathcock searched.
The Countess located
the single lifeboat to escape
the flaming Mica.
Wefing asked the pas-
sengers "Are you alright?"
One replied, "We're al-
right. Has the morning pa-
per got here yet?"
Wefing took the men
aboard and headed back to
Apalachicola while the Sea
Dream continued to search.
Finding nothing, she then
headed for home and found
the Countess taking on wa-
ter, so the survivors were
transferred to the Sea
Dream.
Randolph brewed coffee
for the men as they headed
for port.
Meanwhile, Joe Barber,
up early, was headed to
Ten Foot Hole when he en-
countered his friend, Carol
McLeod, in Battery Park.
McLeod was racing to his
boat, the Trouble, to aid the
Sea Dream, which had run
out of fuel.
Barber joined him, and
the two were able to tow the
bigger boat ashore.
By the time the survivors
reached the Apalachicola
pier, townsfolk had put out
blankets and mattresses
on the pier for the men.
They were then taken to the
Coombs Armory.
The survivors were later
taken to Panama City where
they remained until they
could be returned to Great
Britain.
Barber said what struck
him most was the age of
the British sailors, some
of whom appeared to be in
their early teens. The ship's
roster lists a number of
sailors who were 16 and 17
years old.

'We must save
the children'
An article published in
the St. Joe Star, two weeks
after the attack, praised
Apalachicola for its readi-
ness in the face of the disas-
ter.
The British government
sent letters of condolence to
the families of the men lost
on the Mica. With so many
men were lost in World War
II; thousands of British
families were left to survive
without a father.
Roderick McIlraith was
born three months after his
father's death. His mother,
Isabella, received a small
widow's pension but was
forced to reenter the work
force with two small chil-
dren.
She never remarried.
"I never thought much
about not having a father,"
he said. "About half of my
friends had none."
Isabella McIlraith
worked as a housemother
at the Arcadia Bellows
Children's Home, one of two
houses purchased by the


British American Bellows
Society (BABS), a charity
founded to provide a refuge
for children whose homes
had been destroyed in the
Blitz.
They were called "Bel-
lows" because the first
house purchased contained
an old blacksmith's forge.
Organizers of the retreat
created a ceremony using
the old bellows to welcome
new children to the fold.
Frank Whittaker, of Bris-
tol, Somerset, whose own
children were evacuated
to the United States, con-
ceived of the project and
secured the houses with the
aid of his children's Ameri-
can foster parents and sev-
eral Bristol businessmen.
The society's motto: "We
must save the children."
The Bellows homes were
heavily supported by both
American and British sol-
diers, and became a symbol
of Anglo-American coopera-
tion during the dark days of
the war.

A mysterious
stranger in Berlin
Before her husband's
death, Isabella and Roder-
ick worked as volunteers
with BABS, the pair known
to the youngsters as Uncle
and Auntie Mac. On June
29, 1943, one year to the day
after the sinking of the Mica,
Isabella took a position as
senior hostess at Arcadia
Bellows, where she contin-
ued to work until 1947.
Roderick, aged 31 at his
death, received the King's
Commendation for Brave
Conduct posthumously for
his actions on the Empire
Mica.
Korvettenkapitan Muel-
ler died July 16, 1943 at the
age of 29 when Raider was
bombed in the Sargasso Sea.
The surviving crew mem-
bers, who were all in their
early 20s, said the Mueller,
nicknamed "Alligator," was
an excellent officer, friendly,
good humored, with the in-
terests of the crew at heart.
Raider's crew listened to
radio broadcasts of music
on Tuesday and Friday eve-
nings. There was a collec-
tion of records on board. On
Sunday a "concert" lasting
several hours was held, with
the crew choosing records
to play. Music was broad-
cast over the loudspeaker
system. On Saturday nights
or on Sundays, the men
were given beer, also served
whenever a crewmember
had a birthday.
After 1943, the practice
of merchant ships travel-
ing in armed convoys and
the availability of very long
range reconnaissance
bombers released the Ger-
man stranglehold on the
gulf and the Atlantic, too.
After the war, Harry
Buzzett, a member of the
West Point Class of'44 newly
commissioned as a second
lieutenant, was stationed in
occupied Berlin.
One day, seeking direc-
tions, he encountered a
German who spoke excel-
lent English, who said he
learned the language while
a prisoner of war in the
United States.
Even more amazing, he
claimed to be familiar with
Apalachicola.
Buzzett didn't believe
him until he pointed the
town out on a bookstore
globe and described vari-
ous features visible from
West Pass including water
towers and the bridge. He
claimed to have watched
the coast through binocu-
lars.
The German claimed to
be the captain of U-boat 67,
which seems impossible.

A review of the records
of the Florida Master

(FMNP) indicates that while


Reese has completed the
"Coastal Systems" portion
of the training, and qualified
as a Coastal Naturalist
but has not completed
the other two units
required for certification.
According to the FMNP's

FIRE BAN from page Al


safety reasons to put a fire
ban in place.
"If we receive enough
rain in the next couple of
days, it could be lifted,"
she said.
Brownell said water
hoses are available at many
county recreational sites,
and where they are unavail-
able, county staffers have
covered the grills in plastic.
Signs will be posted notify-
ing visitors of the ban, and
Sheriff Skip Shiver plans
to use the office's flashing
electronic signs to share the
message.
"We're doing every-
thing possible to let people
know, where they come
into the county, there is a
fire ban," Brownell said.
In response to a ques-
tion from Carrabelle
Commissioner Cal Al-
len, County Attorney Mi-
chael Shuler said the ban
would apply everywhere
throughout the county, un-
less a municipality enacts
an ordinance specifying
different rules.
"If y'all aren't going to
take the county's lead on
this, you're all out there on
your own," Commissioner
Cheryl Sanders said.
Allen said, and Com-
missioner Bevin Putnal
agreed, that stopping peo-
ple from lighting off fire-
works would be difficult to
police.
"A lot of people are go-
ing to shoot fireworks, ille-
gal, at night," Putnal said.
Shuler said violating
the ban is a second-degree


misdemeanor, punishable
by up to 60 days in jail and/
or a $500 fine.
Kawika Bailey and
Victor Rowland, with the
Florida Division of For-
estry, said most of the
fires affecting Franklin
County have been caused
by lightning strikes. These
include a three-acre brush
fire west of Apalachicola
and a 378-acre fire on Gul-
ly Branch Road and West
Boundary Road.
"Last week we had a
new fire every day," Bailey
said.
The forestry division
said this week that there
are 440 active wildfires in
the state, and that through
Tuesday, 3,800 wildfires
have consumed almost 400
square miles in Florida.
Last week, Gov. Rick
Scott declared a state of
emergency for counties
affected by the fires. The
Division of Forestry at the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consum-
er Services has issued
a temporary statewide
restriction prohibiting
all open campfires on all
state lands due to extreme
drought conditions and in-
creasing wildfire threats.
The restriction is not
only enacted on state for-
est lands, but also on pub-
lic lands managed by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion, Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection and
regional Water Manage-
ment Districts.


TICE from page Al


County Attorney Mi-
chael Shuler said because
Tice's original appointment
required confirmation of
the county commission, the
county had the authority to
seek his removal.
Following an appear-
ance by Carrabelle Mayor
Curley Messer, Commis-
sioner Cheryl Sanders
moved to ask for Tice's
dismissal and was backed
strongly in the move by
Commissioner Bevin
Putnal.
"According to the calls
I got, he (Tice) is telling
us one thing and going to
the state and telling them
another thing," she said.
"Because of the things that
have happened in the last
eight years, there's mis-
trust out there with Mr.
Tice. The mission of the
(state) health department
is to 'promote, protect and
improve the health of all
people in Florida.' I feel like


we aren't having that mis-
sion statement being re-
flected in Franklin County,
especially at the Carrabelle
health department."
Messer stressed to com-
missioners he favored keep-
ing the health department
annex open in Carrabelle
and wanted no change in
the status of Dana Whaley,
the advanced registered
nurse practitioner who
sees patients there.
"There's a big rumor go-
ing around about my health
department being closed
down. I'm not going to put
up with it," he said. "We
have real good doctors over
there. That Dana Whaley is
a fine doctor, and we don't
want nothing done with
that there. It's time to keep
that health department in
Carrabelle, and that's what
I want.
"And that other piece of
junk next door to the health
department is a piece of


junk," he said, referring to
the Weems Medical Center
East, a new facility built for
$1.3 million in local sales
tax revenue and opened
last January. "You go in
there and want a doctor,
and he can't see you, and
there won't be no one else
around."
Messer stressed the
Carrabelle annex sees a
large number of patients
from Eastpoint and Apala-
chicola, as well.
Sanders said state
health officials in Tallahas-
see have reassured her the
Carrabelle annex would re-
main open this year.
Lockley said he thought
Tice's plan to close the Car-
rabelle annex might have
been dictated from higher-
ups. "When the state's go-
ing to do something, the
people have to follow their
protocol; it goes down the
line," he said.
But Putnal said the


problem cut deeper than
the proposed Carrabelle
closure. "You know your-
self, Mr. Noah, that he (Tice)
has lied to us on numerous
occasions," he said. Putnal
said after he once asked
Tice to keep him abreast of
any meetings on indigent
care issues, there had been
two meetings on the sub-
ject in a single week.
"I never was called,"
Putnal said. "You've got to
have people you can trust
that are working for you,
and I just don't trust him."
Putnal also said he
didn't appreciate the health
department's history of
proposing cutbacks dur-
ing budget time to secure
annual funding from the
county, which last year to-
taled $156,000.
"I don't like to be threat-
ened," he said. "They come
in here and threaten us ev-
ery year to get more money,
that's all it is."

CHAPMAN from page Al


His formal proposal
opened Tuesday met the
county's minimum lease
payment of $22,000 annu-
ally as specified in the re-
quest for bids, advertised
during the past two weeks.
Terms of the lease, to
be negotiated between
Sanaullah and County At-
torney Michael Shuler will
cover both floors of the
historic Art Deco building
but exclude the auditorium
and balcony. It will also re-
quire Sanaullah to pay for
liability insurance and his
portion of all utilities while
granting him shared use of
the bathroom and parking
lot.
Shuler said Tuesday
afternoon that the length
of the lease has yet to be
hammered out and that he
plans to offer a three-year
deal. He said the county
will insist on a provision
enabling it to terminate the
lease without cause, provid-
ing that it gives Sanaullah a
six-month written notice.
Before approving Com-
mission Pinki Jackel's mo-
tion to accept Sanaullah's
proposal, commissioners
heard from both Denise
Roux and Tom Daly, on be-
half of the Apalachicola Mu-
nicipal Library, which has
received the go-ahead from
the city of Apalachicola on
tentative plans to relocate
into the former Chapman
School.
Roux, a member of the
library board and sixth-
generation Apalachicolan,
said that when she put on
her mother's 1946 Chap-
man class ring that morn-
ing, she reflected on this
"gem of a building in the
heart of the city.
"I urge you to consider
the suitability of the tenant
for the building," she said.
"This is one of the most his-
toric and precious buildings
in the county. I think it's im-
portant we move very, very
slowly on this."
Daly, speaking as an


Apalachicola resident,
president of the Apalachic-
ola Area Historical Society
and chairman of the city's
planning and zoning board,
outlined the library's pro-
posal to become the anchor
tenant in a building hous-
ing a community founda-
tion created to raise funds
and secure grants to meet
the needs of youth and cul-
tural revitalization.
"The Chapman building
and library represent the
public face of this founda-
tion, the standard bearer.
We have an opportunity for
public use of this facility,"
he said. "What's at issue is
the highest and best use of
the facility. This is truly a
community treasure.
"I'm not anti-doctor
or anti anybody else," he
stressed. "We have an op-
portunity for something
that is a much bigger
scale."
He said that while the
city's library is not part of
the county system, Apala-
chicola residents should
receive the same benefit
from use of the Chapman
School as non-city resi-
dents. "We're not asking
for funding, but we're ask-
ing for consideration," Daly
said.
"If you all have a founda-
tion and are interested, why
did you all not make a bid
for leasing the Chapman
building?" Jackel asked.


"There's no profitability
motive here," replied Daly.
"We want to serve the citi-
zens of Franklin County. Do
we spend them on rent, or
do we save those funds and
use them for renovation
to make it a more viable
structure?
"This is the most stra-
tegic structure in the en-
tire county," he said. "This
is worth more for tourism
than any other structure.
People are drawn to this
structure, it's been there
80 years, and it is incredibly


vulnerable to misuse."
Jackel stressed that
Sanaullah will be required
to adhere to all guidelines
for this historic structure
and that any modifications
would require the commis-
sioners' written review and
approval.
"We feel like we're
bringing a very needed
service to the county," she
said. "We need to focus on
improving health care in
Franklin County. We have
put thought into this.

libraries; reading is one
of my most favorite pas-
times," she said, noting
that Apalachicola residents
are taxed to help fund the
city library.
"The other areas are
not taxed as such," Jackel
said. "What we're deal-
ing with, we feel is a very
important service. This is
going to expand and grow
and bring other doctors
and (help) our residents
when they get elderly. We
need to bring health care
services so people can stay
in Franklin County and re-
ceive the health care they
need."
Jackel's comments
drew a round of applause
from the audience, but Daly
stressed the larger picture.
"We're not putting it to
the public use that it de-
serves," he said. "I'm talk-
ing about a much broader
perspective than the recipi-
ents of this doctor's care."
Commissioner Noah
Lockley suggested that
the city consider using the
library in the former Apala-
chicola High School, which


is not being used as part
of the recently refurbished
community building.
Commissioner Cheryl
Sanders said the commis-
sioners have received a
flurry of emails in support
of Sanaullah's proposal.
"Rural communities
are losing doctors by leaps
and bounds, and we can't
allow that to happen," she
said.
Commissioner Bevin
Putnal said his own life had
been saved through advice
from the cardiologist and
that when a medical crisis
occurs, "you don't want to
go read a book, you want
that man to take care of
you."
The commissioners also
unanimously approved a
motion to have Dr. Stephen
Miniat, who has leased the
county's former health de-
partment building for over
a decade, to begin assum-
ing the cost of the building's
utilities. They said this was
being done in the interest
of fairness, in keeping the
lease consistent with the
terms of Sanaullah's.

By Pamela Shiver
Special to the Times

Earlier in the year, our
church offered a class on
student leadership to a
group of teenagers who
wanted to live beyond the
status quo. The class takes
them through a rigorous
nine-week course, which
we refer to as boot camp.
The course begins with a
four-hour seminar where
men of integrity give the
students words of encour-
agement and challenge
them to go beyond the
limits they have placed on
themselves while trying to
fit into society's mold.
These men, Ricky
Jones, of Eastpoint, Ray
Tyre, of Carrabelle, Al-
len Nichols, of Altha, and
Scotty Lolley, of Crawford-
ville deposited nuggets of
valuable information into
the youth. The students'
assignment for the nine-
week internship included
giving five hours per week
of service to their church
and other charitable ar-
eas, reading assigned dai-
ly scriptures, and reading
a book entitled "Do Hard
Things" by Alex and Brett
Harris.
They were required to
fill out weekly assignment
sheets and accountabil-
ity sheets, memorize and
quote the weekly memory
scripture and attend a
one-hour "briefing" meet-
ing every week. All the
students attended school
or had jobs, yet managed


to keep up

signments.
Some of
< the par-
ents of the
students
PAMELA reported
their child
SHIVER was im-
Youth Matters proving in
school, volunteering to
help at home without be-
ing asked, and that their
child's attitude had im-
proved significantly.
When we first started
the leadership program
naysayers would say it
would never work because
the youth would never com-
mit to or finish the program,
or that we were putting too
much responsibility on
them. We believed that if we
raised the bar of account-
ability, they would rise to
the occasion. This was the
fourth student leadership
class to graduate for a to-
tal of 25 graduates to have
completed the course over
the last five years. Thirteen
of those graduates are cur-
rently active in different
ministries in church.
The book "Do Hard
Things," which was writ-
ten by two 19-year-old
twin boys, challenges
youth to abandon the idea
adolescence is a vaca-
tion from responsibility.
The teen years should be
the launching pad of life.
They point out that "today
people view the teen years
through the modern lens
of adolescence - a social


category age and behavior
that would have been com-
pletely foreign to men and
women not too long ago."
The term adolescence
means to "grow up," not
only in the biological sense
but also in other aspects
of maturity. The book also
says, "The modern under-
standing of adolescence al-
lows, encourages and even
trains young people to re-
main childish much longer
than necessary."
Industry has targeted
teenagers through mov-
ies, music, fashion, fast
food, and online services.
Through these and other
methods, society has low-
ered its expectation of
youth and the youth have
lowered their standards to
meet those expectations.
Henry Ford once said,
"Whether you think you
can or whether you think
you can't, you're right."
Society expects teens to
experiment with drugs,
alcohol, and sex. Youth are
expected to rebel against
their parents and become
self-absorbed with lives
revolving around their so-
cial world. They are not
expected to understand or
even care about politics,
personal finances, or faith.
The Harris boys refer
to a word introduced in
Time magazine in 2005 --
"kidult" - which is an ado-
lescent in their mid to late
20s who have exhibited
"failure to launch." They
are full-grown yet they
still live with their parents


Card of Thanks

Earl Duggar Family
Our family would like to send our heartfelt
thank-you to everyone who kept us in their prayers,

It doesn't seem like it's
been a year ago that your
Angel came to take you
home to your paradise in
Heaven. I just wanted you
to know:

If tears could build a
stairway
and thoughts a memory
lane,
I'd walk right up to
heaven
and bring you home
again.

No farewell words were
spoken,
No time to say good-
bye;
You were gone before I
knew it
And only God knows
why.

My heart's still active
in sadness
And secret tears still
flow;
What it meant to lose
you,
No one can ever know.

But now I know you
want us
To mourn for you no
more,
To remember all the
happy times
Life still has much in
store.

Since you'll never be
forgotten
I pledge to you today,
A hallowed place with-
in my heart,
I love and miss You

There were 209 fatal
drownings from 2001-2009.
One drowning every five
days. Nearly all were chil-
dren under age 5, and most
were in their own back-
yard.
Portable and inflatable

pools are at most risk. A
child can drown in as little
as two inches of water.
About 43 percent of the
children were being su-
pervised when they went
under water, 39 percent
were unsupervised; and
18 percent of the kids died
during a "lapse" in super-
vision.
Parents don't always
understand it takes just
a couple minutes for chil-
dren submerged under-
water for their breathing
and heart to stop. There
has to be constant adult
supervision within arms
reach. I'm begging that
everyone that has a pool
or intends to get one will
have a fence with a locked
gate, or pool covers, and
floating alarms. Everyone
that has a pool needs to
know CPR. Don't let what
happened to our little an-
gel happen to anyone you
know. The next one could
be yours or your neigh-
bor's.
Our child was two-
and-a-half years old and if
you've never lost a child it
is the most heartbreaking
pain you will ever endure.
No words can ever explain
the pain that you suffer.
And I'm trying to stop the
next person from going
through the same torment
that we went through. I'm
hoping that this will help
someone else.

and dress, talk and party
as they did in their teens
with no sense of direction
or purpose.
The power of expecta-
tion can be either shack-
les or wings for your child.
Can we avoid creating ir-
responsible and childish
teenagers in a culture that
promotes it? Program-
ming your child begins at
a young age. Allowing chil-
dren to endure adversity or
obstacles teaches them to
overcome. Nothing builds
a child's rapport with
their parents more than
spending quality time with
them. Talking with your
child about their dreams
and ambitions can inspire
them to pursue their goals
while you coach them and
give them the tools to
reach those goals.
Responsibility is not
birthed into a child; it is
cultivated with much prac-
tice and training. Sched-
ules give your child a sense
of stability but in an im-
perfect world where both
parents work and things
do not always happen on
time, we should teach
them to accept change and
adapt accordingly. None of
these methods is foolproof
or even revolutionary but
to counteract the oppres-
sion of society, we have to
begin at home.
We welcome all sugges-
tions and hope you enjoy

Strong turnout boosts


Saltwater Classic


By Lois Swoboda

Attendance was up and re-
cords were set at the 23rd an-
nual Big Bend Salt-
water Classic last
weekend.
Chairman Justin .
Parramore said he
was pleased with
the turnout of more -
than 600 anglers in
this year's tourna-
ment, a 20 percent
increase from last
year.
The tourney
went high-tech with
an on-site electron-
ic leaderboard in .

leader in the Master's Division
with 355, as the team shared a
$5,000 first prize.
Russell caught both the
first-place king mackerel of
29.9 pounds and wahoo of 43.85
pounds. He caught the second-
place red grouper, weighing
9.95 pounds, and the third place
red snapper of 18.45 pounds.
Clint Taylor of Bigfishsgi was
second in the Masters division
with 338 points. Taylor took first
place in red snapper, with 20.7

a 30.8 pound wahoo.
David Moss of Crawfordville
and Buddy Boyett of Mexico
Beach tied for first place in the
Recreational Division with 163
points each. A tie for the Grand

mula based on the weight of the
individuals' scored fish in com-
parison to the average weight of
all fish placing in the applicable
categories.

The scales were tilted in
Moss' direction by a 69.9-pound

The fish also won a $1,000 first
place purse and $567 jackpot
in the wahoo cat-
egory.
S Boyett caught
a big fish, too. His
7-pound redfish
set a tournament
record, winning
him a $1,000 first
place purse and a
$3,000 jackpot.
Pat Boyett,
Buddy's wife, took
third place with
150 points. She
also walked away
with a lady's gift
basket awarded for
the first time this

phy. Up until this year, I didn't
get to fish; I went along as deck
hand."
Also in the big money this
was year Greg Holmstrom,
whose winning 42-7-pound king
mackerel reeled him in a $5,000
check for the kingfish jackpot.
Lamar Munroe of Chipley
set a new tournament record
for flounder with his first place
6.85-pound catch. Marilyn and
Gary Lawhon of Carrabelle
caught the fourth- and fifth-
place flounders.
Two records were set this
year in the Youth Division.
Taylor Munroe, who fished
with his dad Lamar, set a red-
fish record with his 6.05-pound
first-place winner.
Chandler McDonald of Syl-
vester, Ga., also set a record
with his 15.9-pound first-place
snapper.
The "Weigh a Fish, Win a
Boat" contest returned this
year, awarding David Garri-
son of St. Simon's Island, Ga.,
a one-year membership in
the Carrabelle Freedom Boat
Club valued at $7,500. He can
use his membership at any of
Freedom's 60 locations na-
tionwide. Members have ac-
cess to a fleet of boats includ-
ing cruisers, pontoons, deck
boats and bowriders.

nament went again this year

ficial Reefs Inc., a private,

ficial reefs in the northeastern

Florida elder, left, and duck potato.


Edible roadside plants


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer

The plants in today's ar-
ticle were glimpsed on the
east end of the county.
For about a month, glossy
green shrubs with shaggy
white flower heads have
been visible on the road-
side. In another month, the
flowers on the Florida elder
(Sambucus canadensis) will
be replaced by clusters of
black berries.
Elderberries are edible
and were used as food and
medicine by Indians in Flor-
ida, but you must be sure to
distinguish between them
and the red berries found
on a similar plant water
hemlock (Cicuta mexicana),
among the most poisonous
plants in North America.
Stems of water hemlock
have purple stripes and are
hollow. Avoid touching this
plant, and if you do, wash
carefully afterward.
The elderberry stem has
a uniform, white to light
gray pith in cross-section
of the stem, and the foliage
has a rank, acrid odor when
crushed. Elderberries bear
masses of black to dark
purple edible fruit. Never
consume red berries from
a plant resembling Florida
elder.
Syrup prepared from the
berries is a traditional rem-
edy for the flu in Florida.
To prepare syrup from fully
ripe, black elderberries for
use on pancakes or to use as
a flu remedy, collect the ber-
ries, carefully remove them
from the stems, rinse and
place in a pan with plenty of
water. Simmer the berries
until a dark syrup forms. Af-


ter the berries have cooled,
squeeze the berries through
cheesecloth to remove the
tiny seeds. Place the elder-
berry juice into a pan, and
add sugar and simmer until
thick.
The Florida edible elder-
berry can be picked right off
the bush and eaten raw as
long as the berries are com-
pletely black. There is no
need to remove the seeds
from black elderberries.
Another edible plant in
bloom right now is duck po-
tato (Sagittaria falcate), also
known as arrowleaf swan
potato, wapato, katniss and
swamp potato.
Duck potato is a com-
mon aquatic plant found
near the edges of ponds
and rivers and in ditches.
Leaves can be arrow, lance
or grass-like. Saturated
soil is necessary for these
plants. Excellent water
garden plants, arrowheads
will also tolerate being sub-
merged for prolonged peri-
ods.
The starchy roots can
be fried, boiled or baked but
should not be eaten raw.
The protein content of 4 to
7 percent is high for a root
crop. The young shoots can
also be eaten.
A simple way to prepare
arrowhead is to boil tubers
until tender, slice thin and
serve with butter or sesame
oil. If any, unbuttered tubers
should be left over, serve
cold with vinaigrette dress-
ing as a salad.
.As the name implies,
duck potatoes are a food
source for ducks and other
waterfowl. Indians har-
vested the root for food and
called it "wapato."


Scallop season to open early, close late


Special to The Log

The recreational har-
vest season for bay scal-
lops in Florida will begin
Saturday, June 25, and ex-
tend through Sept. 25.
Open scalloping areas
on Florida's Gulf coast ex-
tend from the west bank of
the Mexico Beach Canal in
Bay County to the Pasco-
Hernando county line near


Aripeka. It is illegal to pos-
sess bay scallops while
you're in or on state waters
outside the open harvest
areas, or to land bay scal-
lops outside the open ar-
eas.

scallops, including man-
agement rules, dive-flag
regulations and boating

RSH REPORT SPONSORED BY

9OUTRIGGERS

Freshwater

As summer sets in, backwater creeks and sloughs will dry up,
forcing fish to find deeper water holes this month. Depot creek
has had good reports of shellcracker, but the heat has kept most
in the A/C or in the shade and off the water.

Inshore
Large gator trout are being landed in the deep holes behind
Black's Island using live LY's and small pinfish. Fish moving water
for best results early in the morning. Topwater action is by far the
most exciting with huge fish caught at Firetower, Trey's Hideaway,
and Pig Island. Red fish are on the move in St. Joe Bay as well, but
are a little on the shy side. Good reports of nice fish caught at
Pomano Point and in the ICW canal on artificial grubs and spoons.

Offshore
Red snapper fishing is still going strong with good fish coming
back to the docks. Most big fish are landed on live bait; however,
cut bait will keep them on the hook also. Chum them up at the
"car bodies" in Mexico Beach or at the "tower sites."

The Times I Al 1


DAVID ADLERSTEIN I The Times
Ingrid Williams of Apalachicola is the aunt of Dallas
Maverick Jason Terry, inset.



For love of family


Apalachicola's Ingrid
Williams, above, might
be the only sports fan in
Franklin County who is
glad the Miami Heat lost
in the National Basketball
Association finals this
month, in six games to the
Dallas Mavericks. That's
because she is crazy about
the Mavs' 6-foot-2 shooting
guard Jason Terry and
wants him to know it.
Williams wed Arvid
Terry, the NBA's star's
uncle, in Tacoma, Wash.,
on May 6, 2000. After two
years of marriage and the
birth of their daughter
Madge Anna Jordan
Terry, Arvid died the day


after the couple's second
anniversary. After the
Mavs' victory, Williams,
now married to Clarence
Williams Jr., was ecstatic.
"I was up and down the
street blowing my horn
as if I just got married. I
went wild," she said. "My
husband said, 'I hope the
police don't pick you up.'
He's a Heat fan, so my
house was chaos. But
he was a good sport. He
congratulated me and said
'I'm happy for you, baby.'"
And now Ingrid wants
to send congratulations to
the Dallas Mavericks and
especially to her nephew
Jason Terry. And so do we.

END OF AN EYESORE













- ' --









LOIS SWOBODA I The Times
Gary and Mike Barber made a gift to Carrabelle to improve the look of downtown. The telephone
pole just north of the post office has been used as a kiosk to post notices for some time, but because
people failed to retrieve their postings when they were out of date, the pole became an eyesore.
The Barber brothers wanted to do something about that, so Gary suggested Mike build a community
bulletin board. After getting permission from the city, they installed the finished product on the public
right of way next to the offending pole. The board is dedicated to Capt. Bobby Millender, who
worked Mike and Gary's father, Joe Barber, aboard the research boat for the Florida State University
Coastal and Marine Laboratory named Tursiops, the scientific name for bottlenose dolphins. "I just
got tired of looking at it and decided to do something about it, and I wanted to do something to
remember Bobby. He was Daddy's friend and he was my friend," Gary said. The board is for public
use. Please remember to remove your notice when it is out of date.

Memphis residents



unhurt in one-car crash


Special to The Times

Two residents from
Memphis, Tenn. escaped
serious injury June 14
when their car struck
trees on State Road 66,
just north of Bouington
Road.
According to a crash
report by Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Thomas
Stone, Robert T. Kyle, 77,
was driving a 2007 Volvo
S60 southbound of SR 65
at about 2:30 p.m. when
he veered into the north-
bound lane and on to the
east shoulder.
Stone reported Kyle's
car traveled about 170' on
the east shoulder along a
ditch parallel to the road-


way before crossing a 9'
long concrete culvert and
colliding with two sets of
trees. After rotating, the
car came to rest on the
east shoulder.
Stone said Kyle told
law enforcement officials
he had fallen asleep at the
wheel and "when he woke
up he was already on the
east side shoulder of SR
65."
Kyle reported no in-
juries. A 25-year-old pas-
senger, Elizabeth L. Buck,
had minor injuries but
was not transported to a
hospital.
The report indicated
Kyle was wearing his seat-
belt and that alcohol was
not a factor in the mishap.


Have a
great and safe
summer.
The
Saltwater
Classic was a
huge success,
from the looks LANARI
of all the traffic Jim
in the village,
Carrabelle, and
up and down U.S. 98.
We had a small crowd
at our monthly covered
dish lunch at Chillas
Hall last Sunday, June
19. Sorry you missed
out. We get together on
the third Sunday of each
month. Bring a dish to
share, and join us next
month, why don't you?


We start serving
at 1 p.m.
The guys are
working like little
beavers at the
old Village Mart.
Really going to
K NEWS be nice when it's
Welsh finished, and it will
be a blessing when
it's opened!
Be kind to one
another, check on the
sick and housebound,
and remember
- Contrary to popular
opinion, God's last name
is not Damn.
Until next time,
God bless America,
our troops, the poor,
homeless and hungry.


Corps squelches rumors of

Lake Seminole drawdown
The U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, Woodruff/ Lake
Seminole Project Office, is
receiving calls and e-mails
concerning a rumored drawdown
at Lake Seminole. The calls and e-
mails reported that the lake would
be drawn down as much as 10 feet.
These reports are untrue and the
lake will not be drawn down.
"There is speculation that
the rumors probably got started
in response to the large crane
that was moved into place at
Jim Woodruff Dam in May to
make repairs on the dam," said
Memphis Vaughan, Jr, Woodruff/
Seminole site manager. "The
crane is being used to replace the
girders on the spillway bridge.
The repairs to the spillway bridge
include replacement of the steel
girders that have been affected by
corrosion and deterioration over
the last 50-plus years. The work
on the spillway bridge is projected
to be completed in October 2011."
The work on the spillway
bridge does not require any
changes to the lake levels or
to levels downstream. "Lake
Seminole is expected to continue
to operate in its normal range
throughout the summer. Low
river levels below the dam are
due to dry conditions on the
system and are unrelated to any

Franklin County School

Nutrition wins state awards
Franklin County School Foodand
Nutrition Services attended
the Florida School Nutrition
Association's annual conference,
April 28-30 in Orlando, where the
local program was awarded three
state level awards of recognition.
Robin Tennille, director of Food
& Nutrition Services, said the
county received the Florida Smart
Start award for participation in
recognizing school breakfast week.
The week's theme was "Discover
School Breakfast," and students
participated by eating a free,
healthy, well-balanced breakfast.
Each student received a Breakfast
Week sticker and a pencil;
elementary students participated
in a "Mystery Breakfast Scavenger
Hunt."
Tennille said her staff received
the Florida Super School Award
for elementary and secondary
school involvement in National
School Lunch Week, whose theme
was "What's on your tray?"
All week long, the "Nutritional
Wizard," Terry Hilton, held daily
activities for students during the
lunch periods.
The wizard discussed the
"Body Parts" and gave awards to
all who participated. April Dalton,
food service manager, dressed
as a scarecrow searching for her
body part "The Brain."
Tennille told school board
members last month she
"challenged Mrs. Hilton to market
our program this year, to increase
participation, and to improve our
public perception.
The receipt of this award
confirms that Mrs. Hilton and the
rest of the Franklin County School
staff have met the goals set for
them."

Campaign 'votercade' makes stop in Apalachicola


By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
The 2012 presidential campaign
has begun in Franklin County.
On June 8 John Davis, of Grand
Junction, Colo., became the first
presidential hopeful to visit the
county.
He paused for about an hour
in Battery Park, talking earnestly
to passersby about social, political
and economic issues here. Davis'
wife, Debra, took careful notes on
everything that was said.
Davis, who began his campaign
Jan. 10, plans to visit all 3,260 coun-
ties in the U.S. As of Thursday,
he had stumped in about 650 and
plans to complete Florida's 67
counties by sunset.
Davis, his wife and several of
his children, are traveling in a tour
bus similar to the one employed
by Gov. Rick Scott in his campaign
last year. Davis calls his journey a
"votercade."
Davis describes himself as a
self-employed home builder with
six children and four grandchil-
dren. He and his wife said people
they have spoken to during their
travels indicate the budget is the
greatest area of concern for most
citizens.
Davis said that, if elected, he
would bring top government of-
ficials together in a room and tell
them, "We're only keeping what we
need in this budget.
"If we go another five years and
borrow more money, there won't
be no budget to balance," he said.
Davis said it is imperative to get
somebody better qualified into the
White House and he feels he is that

person.
"I think the president needs to
be a good follower before he can
become a good leader," he wrote
on his website. "He needs to have a
lot of life experiences, such as wife
and kids, maybe six kids to be ex-
act and four grandkids. He should
be self-employed or run his own


business
for maybe 30 years. He must have
some failures along the way. Maybe
like bankruptcy. Maybe in 1983 and
then paid it back 18 years later.
"My family has been in Grand
Junction for six generations. I have
been almost entirely self-employed
since I graduated from high school


and although I have no college de-
gree, I've been through the school
of hard knocks several times over. I
am a man of integrity and a man of
vision. I have made mistakes and
I've learned from them. My great-
est strengths are common sense
and problem solving. I love God
and I love America. I am dedicated


to my family, to God, to my commu-
nity and to my country," he wrote.
While traversing the nation, he
and his family will spend two weeks
on the road and then return home
for one. He and Debra took a week
off during their tour of Florida for a
vacation cruise.
His website offers a contract
to America to produce a balanced
budget, limit terms in office, pro-
tect the borders and uphold the
constitution. His core values, plain-
ly listed online, are integrity, honor,
accountability, common sense, loy-
alty, truth, servant hood and passion.
He seeks grassroots support,
both financial and religious, and is
recruiting "Prayer Warriors" who
pledge to pray everyday for the
United States and for John Davis
to be elected president.
Davis said he is deeply religious
and that God touched his heart to
begin his campaign.
Along the campaign trail, he
wields a symbol of his campaign
during photo ops, a 3-foot log
wrench painted red, white and
blue. Davis appeals directly to
working people for support.
"I don't look like a president. I
don't talk like a president and I don't
act like a president, but I do have
what it takes to be a president,"
he wrote. "I care about where this
country is headed, and want to do
something about it. I don't think
government is or should be so far
away that it is virtually unattain-
able for the average person."
If he doesn't wind up in the
White House, at least John Davis
and his family will have ad a road
trip to remember.
