After a lengthy backand-forth with Weems board members Nick Yon clas and Gayle Dodds re garding hospital nances and policies, Commissioner Cheryl Sanders moved for Lloyds immediate ouster. But following an appeal for more time from Mark OBryant, CEO of Talla hassee Memorial Hospital, Sanders agreed to give TMH and Weems about three months to implement an action plan that incor porates the commission ers concerns. TMH em ploys both Lloyd and Chief Nursing Ofcer Cindy Drapal under an afliation agreement with Weems, although both salaries are fully funded out of Weems operational revenues. Sanders motion passed unanimously and delays any action on Lloyds r ing until at least Jan. 17, when commissioners in tend to revisit the motion. Sanders told OBryant she was making her mo tion because of her feel ing that Lloyd, who began July 18 as former CEO Chuck Colverts succes sor, was not the right t for the county. When you lose your condence in somebody, thats a bad situation, she said. Weve lost con dence. I do not feel like Miss Lloyd is appropri ate for Franklin County. The condence is lost out there; Im asking for you to take care of the situation. This is the rst time Ive gotten any communi cation from her whatsoev er, said Sanders. We pay her salary and shes not looking out for us in the best interest of the people. I think that she needs to be moving on. Questions arose wheth er a termination decision was the responsibility of TMH, which had overseen the hiring process, or the Weems board, which gave its approval in the spring for hiring Lloyd, 40, from among a eld of ve nal ists. OBryant made clear that such a personnel de cision was ultimately in the hands of the Weems board. We work under the direction of the (Weems) board; we work by con tract to them, he said. I would ask that you not take that action now, that you give us some time. There is a lot of work that needs to be done in that organization, he said. I would ask that you give us some time to address the concerns of the com munity and organization, and demonstrate plans Experiencing Ethiopia, A4 Thursday, October 20, 2011 V O L. 126 ISSUE 25 Index County weighs Weems CEO ringBy Lois Swoboda Times Staff Writer On Oct. 11, Franklin County Habitat for Humanity held its annual meeting at the Eastpoint Firehouse, attended by more than 25 people, many of them prospec tive homeowners. Habitat President Pam Ashley told the assembly that Centennial Bank and Superior Bank have each donated a lot in Eastpoints Magnolia Ridge subdivision. She said Habitat has enough money to construct one house, at a cost of about $65 per square foot. An architect is working on plans for the home, which Ashley said will have four bedrooms and house a family with three children. This will be the rst two-story Habitat house constructed in the county. Ashley and her husband Don co-chair Habitats fundraising committee. Once again, next years Mardi Gras celebration will be the main fundraiser. The party will expand and take place on two days, Friday and Satur day, Feb. 3 and 4, 2012. Habitat is also moving the celebration to a larger venue, the Fort Coombs Armory. In the past, Mardi Gras was held at the Dixie Theatre. A parade is planned for Friday evening; Saturdays event will be a gala dinner, possibly a seafood cookout. Don Ashley said 20 sponsored tables are needed to build the second house planned for Magno lia Ridge. Habitat has other irons in the fundraising re.

See HABITAT A14 By David Adlerstein Times City Editor After more than two decades of the job, Coun ty Planner Alan Pierce announced Tuesday that he plans to step down next year. My schedule is Sep tember 2012, he told county commissioners at the tail end of his tradi tional report. I think its going to take a while to get this done. Pierce, who also holds the title of director of administrative services, outlined a time frame that would see him providing a job description to com missioners next month. Following a period of advertising for the job, Pierce said he envisioned the board conducting in terviews in January, with their subsequent selection then working with Pierce until March or April. Pierce said he plans to draw on accumulated leave time to span the period until September, when he will retire on or about his 57th birthday. He said that he had reviewed the nancial picture and determined that the nancial gain of fully retiring at age 62 was offset by his desire to take advantage of other options while still fairly young. Money is always an incentive I wont deny that, he said.

The oldest resident of Isle of Rest In the Oct. 6 issue of the Times, writer Lois Swoboda speculated that Mrs. Sally Walker, at 103, was the oldest known resident of Isle of Rest Cemetery in Carrabelle. Jessie Mae Harris of Apalachicola called to tell us that her adopted grandfather, Caesar S. Smith, who lived to be 105, is buried there and lived to be older than Walker. She said her grandfather was born June 4, 1873 in South Carolina, and later worked cutting railroad ties in Harbeson City. Savannah Tyler remembers a young Caesar Smith. He was a healthy sixfoot man. He was muscular, you know. He was a good old man who tended to his business and did what he could for his community and Missionary Baptist Church where he was a deacon.

Glynis Holcombe OSCI (One Stroke Certied Instructor) www.pieceocape.com 850-229-1185 By David Adlerstein and Lois Swoboda Times Staff Writers An oyster festival that spanned St. George Island and Eastpoint helped the rst full weekend of Octo ber to sparkle. On Saturday, Oct. 8, on St. George Island, the three-day Franklin County Oyster Festival was attend ed by a couple hundred visitors and residents. Organizer Elaine Rosen thal said the festival was hosted by the St. George Island Business Associa tion and business interests in Eastpoint, and if there are any prots, they will be used to help the businesses fund other events that will bring visitors to the area. The festival received two BP grants that are admin istered by the Tourist De velopment Council. A grant was also received from the Florida Bureau of Seafood & Aquacultures Florida Gulf Safe program, with additional funds coming from donated services and the treasury of the busi ness association. The shing tournament had 37 entrants, despite it being a very windy day. Included in the entry fee of $20 was a tournament T-shirt. At the weigh-in at the new Eastpoint Patton Street Pavilion, the $1,000 prize for largest ounder, at 2.24 pounds, went to Robert Guzik of Lake Lee lanau, Mich. A friend of Guziks rented a house on SGI and invited Richard to stay there. Tournament organizers said a larger ounder was caught by a fellow who was unable to produce a shing license and so had to be disqualied after a call to the state agency that tracks shing licenses said that he hadnt held one since 2008. The largest trout, at 2.395 pounds, was caught by Bob Hoelzle, of Tal lahassee, who has been shing in Franklin County for many years. In fact, he said, that hed move here if he could. The largest whiting, at 0.93 pounds, was caught by Devin Gay of Apalachicola for a prize of $500. Devin celebrated his success by showing off a few moves on the dance oor when the music resumed. The shucking tourna ments, also held at the new pavilion, were judged by County Commissioner Pinki Jackel. The two $100 winners were Tracey Car roll, of Eastpoint, and April Dalton of Eastpoint. The $300 Master Shucker award went to Michael OLear, from Panama City Beach. Close to 20 non-prot agencies (or for-prots that had agreed to donate their earnings to non-prots) set up tents in lighthouse park on the island for the Saturday Food Court and Kids in the Park. Some sold food, or other items such as T-shirts, while others pre sented educational materi als. BP grant monies paid for oysters so that three non-prots could sell them at a low cost. The SGI Civic Club prepared the fried oysters and hushpuppies, the Lighthouse Association had the roasted oysters, and the parents and friends of Donna Barbers fourth grade class (which is sav ing for an end-of-the-school year trip) sold oysters on the half-shell. The lines for the oysters were long and by 1:30 p.m., the booths had completely exhausted 25 bags and 10 gallons of oys ters. At 12:30 p.m., Close Up, a musical duo featur ing Kenny and Joe, per formed popular music for the crowd during the next few hours. Beginning at 1 p.m. spe cial events were added for kids. The Yacht Club enter tained over 150 kids with races and games. Coo Coo the Clown, Raggedy Anne, some animal pals, and a number of pirates appeared in the crowd. During the two weeks leading up to the festival and during the festival, rafe tickets could be pur chased, with the buyer given an Oyster Festival T-shirt. The drawing was to be during the Saturday night concert, but a wind storm and rain cut the con cert short, Rosenthal said, and it was instead held during the Sunday after noon concerts which were moved to Harry As because the weather was still windy & rainy. Performers in cluded Brian Bowen, Rick Ott Band and Seth Walker Band. First place winner of a beach house weekend, which included a $200 gas card and a $200 shopping spree went to Tennessean Gina Nash. The second place prize, a deep-sea shing trip with Journeys of St. George, went to Lisa Howe of Valdosta, Ga. She and seven other women have been coming to the island each year that an oyster festival has been held, since 2007. This year they titled their trip A Cel ebration of Life in honor of one of the women who is re covering from cancer. The third place prize, a Bounty of the Bay boating trip with Journeys of St. George, was won by John Kraynak of Tallahassee, who came on Saturday to spend the day at the festival. The festival began on Friday with a dinner of fried oysters and/or mullet provided by the Franklin County Seafood Workers at 6 p.m. They brought an oys ter boat and also sold oys ters on the half-shell. The concert by Bill Wharton & the Ingredients that eve ning featured their unique style of high-energy blues as Bill cooked a 20-gallon pot of gumbo, complete with local shrimp, onstage. At the end of the concert, ev eryone ate gumbo. Rosen thal said 350 people were at the outdoor concert located in the Chili Cook-off park ing lot. The next night, the Humane Society sold din ners of grilled chicken and shrimp before the 7 p.m. concert with ACME Rhythm and Blues from Tallahassee. Hardly 45 minutes into the concert, a heavy windstorm with tor rential rain erupted and ended the concert. Other Eastpoint festivi ties took place as the rain date for I Love Eastpoint Day, canceled last month during a squall. Here too there was live music and lots of food.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times By Deanna Simmons Special to the Times Salaam, Indeed my todays are far better than my yesterdays (thank God). I am well, the heart and soul of Zion is amazing, the people are beautiful, and the landscape is breathtaking. Life here is very different, but I dont have to tell you that. Three weeks ago, we celebrated the Ethiopian New Year. It is now 2004 over here. The holidays, traditions, and culture are all so interesting and new to me. The Orthodox churches wake me up most mornings around 3 a.m., chanting in some old, sacred language that 99 percent of the people dont understand. That is because 15 out of 30 days a month honor some saint. Two days a week are fasting days. And we just celebrated Meskal, a holiday I have never ever heard of. It was beautiful. Hundreds of thousands of people wearing white, holding hands, and singing. Quite a sight. I keep busy these days by researching the needs of my community in order to knowledgeably write proposals to implement sustainable health-related programs. I also teach English to orphans on the weekends. These kids absolutely love to learn. They understand the value of education more than the kiddies I tutored stateside, but I guess when you have less opportunity you appreciate opportunity more. They dont mess around. The weather is becoming more tolerable. It was so cold last month and the two months before. Every other day was a hail storm. And when millions of nickel-sized hail balls cascade onto a tin roof it sounds similar to War! (Or so Id imagine; I hope I never have to nd out.) It is getting hotter and drier, which is great because it reduces the tremendous mold problem. And, oh yeah, it is (or at least was) a tremendous mold problem. I recently moved housing because of the issue. Luckily, I do not NEED anything. It took me 25 years to distinguish the difference between luxuries and necessities. For example, toilet tissue, clean natural (unboiled) water, Lysol and American chewing gum are luxuries. Previously, I was grossly confused. I thank God daily for the struggles that help me to decipher and appreciate the difference. I have never been so appreciative in my entire life! It took me one whole month just to get a library card. The security clearance was strenuous. This is a liberty and convenience I never thought to acknowledge in the past. I have learned how to milk a cow and boil the milk for breakfast. Ive killed a chicken, chopped rewood, herded goats and learned more about myself and my people in four months than I ever did in four years of college. I know that God has favor upon me and he has lessened the hardship of international transition for me. Like I said, I thank God that my todays are better, far better, than my yesterdays. I look forward to each and every tomorrow. I know that the sun (son) will be there shining for me. Dehna Hugni, Apalachicola resident Deanna Simmons, daughter of Franklin County High School teacher Elinor Mount-Simmons, is a twoyear volunteer with the Peace Corps in Injabara, Ethiopia, serving as a health economic development advisor.PHOTO COURTESY OF DE A NN A S IMMONS Deanna Simmons, left, in white Meskal holiday garb, sits with an Ethiopian friend. My todays are better than my yesterdays According to a New York Times political story written by Jay Root, Ross Ramsey and Jim Rutenberg last week, one of the fields of Presidential candidates was identified as bending, creating or vetoing new state laws and regulations to favor large contributors and political friends. The article further tells how his friend, lobbyist X has tapped donors, business allies and indebted lawmakers to help candidate X accomplish ambitious political and legislative goals embodying a pay-to-play culture. The writers of the article tell of one lawmaker who was told that if he did not vote a certain way, he might be on the receiving end of a business-backed campaign that would oust him. Just big business and politics as usual, you say? Washington and state capitol politics as usual? Candidates and their behind-thescenes supporters doing what it is they do in order to run our world, you say? Thats just the way it is, you sigh? What do you really think of the pay to play culture of which the New York Times authors write? Do you believe it is what we now accept as politics as usual? Do you believe it is the way government, or any business should be done? Do you believe that it should be the one with the gold who can make the rules? And do you believe this kind of pay to play only occurs in big cities, in big government, with big-time politicians? Do you throw up your hands in disgust when you read about corruption identified at national levels? But what if you knew it was going on in local government, close to home? What do you think about those who take advantage of their elected power and status to demand something extra in return for their governments business? Do you believe public contracts should be awarded to those who offer something extra behind the scenes to the officials in charge? Is a mayor who demands a kickback from a service business any different than a policeman taking a bribe to fix a ticket? Should such pay-for-play behind-the-scenes bonuses be accepted as a standard in the facts of todays world? Are they acceptable as just a cost of doing business, and just the way it is at all levels of national as well as local government, and indeed, within everyday life itself? Is such behavior not really unusual at all, but done everywhere, by everyone? Does that make it OK? Do you think all politicians and their minions are crooked, dishonest or at the very least, out for their own self-interests? Do you think because everyone does it, such behavior is acceptable after all? Is it futile to hope for, or to expect to find an honest politician or even businessman? Do you wish government, and real life, could be conducted with ethics and integrity, or do you despair at the naivet of such a hope? And what happens to those leaders, or even their staff or supporters who demand such kickbacks? Is the constable who takes a bribe ever disciplined? What about the trusted banker who shouldnt have been trusted after all? Who watches for the politicians with their hands out, or the dealmakers behind the scenes? Does anyone really demand or even expect honesty from their elected representatives and community leaders? When government representatives are re-elected as if to ignore or even approve of their known transgressions what does that say about all of us? Statesman and philosopher Edmund Burke (1729-1797) warned, All who have ever written on government are unanimous, that among a people generally corrupt, liberty cannot long exist. Perhaps we really do get what we deserve? Mel Kelly is a frequent contributor to the Apalachicola and Carrabelle Times. Tired of pay-to-play politics? THOUGHTS FOR THE TIMES Mel Kelly Special to the Times Teen drivers are approximately 50 percent more likely to crash in the rst month of having their license than they are after a full year of experience driving on their own. Analyzing the crashes of new drivers in North Carolina, researchers found that three common mistakes failure to reduce speed, inattention, and failure to yield accounted for 57 percent of all crashes in which teens were at least partially responsible during their rst month of licensed driving. Additionally, when researchers looked at specic types of crashes in relation to how long the driver had been licensed, they found that some types of crashes occurred at relatively high rates at rst and declined particularly quickly with experience. The study illustrated changes in teen behavior when a parent is no longer in the car. While the vast majority of driving caught on camera was uneventful, the study did capture a number of close calls due to simple mistakes likely attributable to inexperience, along with a few instances of texting behind the wheel, horseplay with passengers, running red lights, and other potentially distracting or dangerous behaviors. AAA suggests the following steps parents can take to improve their teens safety as they learn to drive on their own: Practice, practice, practice: Once teens have their actual license, continue to practice together to ensure that basic skills are mastered and to introduce varied driving conditions (snow, heavy trafc, rural roads) with an experienced driver in the passenger seat. Keep passengers out: Teen drivers crash risks multiply with teenage passengers in the vehicle. Set limits and enforce them consistently. Limit night driving: Reduced visibility makes night driving riskier for drivers of all ages. For inexperienced teens, its even harder. Allow new teen drivers to drive at night only if truly necessary or to practice with a parent. Keep setting rules: Parents can and should set and enforce rules above and beyond their state laws. In addition to night and passenger limits, set rules for inclement weather, highways, cities, or other driving conditions in which a teen has not gained enough experience.

First month most dangerous for teen drivers LETTERS TO THE EDITORA sad day for E astpoint Today was a very sad day for Eastpoint. A landmark of our own burned down. The owner of a house, Aurther L. Tucker, Sr., was a pioneer of sorts. He owned a seafood company employing many locals for years and was the first one to actually can crabmeat. Provided seafood and jobs for years. His son, Aurther L. Tucker, Jr., also helped employ many, and was recognized for his work on getting the breakwater in here to protect our shores. It is so sad to know that these two have done so much and was recognized so little. For us Eastpointers, his home should have been preserved as a Historical Home. Not because of the age, but of the history, Eastpoint counts, too. Thank you, Mildred M. Spencer Eastpoint Above ground utility poles an unwelcome slap My husband and I recently left a too-short Apalachicola weekend visit with a large, delicious redfish he caught, new bookish pals from Autumn Authors in Apalachicola, and a renewed affection for the historic downtown landscape. When the publisher (National Geographic Society) featured my book in New Orleans this summer at a library conference, we didnt see aboveground utilities in historic districts. Nor are aboveground utility poles landmarks of historic Savannah, Charleston, Historic Williamsburg, or closer to home, historic Mission San Luis in Tallahassee. Please impress upon all that new aboveground utility poles imposed through Apalachicola will be a slap to all the arduous work the community accomplished, to present this treasured town to the world as a visual jewel. Jan Godown Annino TallahasseeT hank you, M r. Watkins, for a generous offer On behalf of the Board of the Apalachicola Municipal Library, it is with profound gratitude that I thank Mr. J. Ben Watkins for his generous offer of an additional $125,000 to be added to the Margaret Key bequest. Our little library helps to serve the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of all the members of the community. Because of his magnanimous contribution, and his challenge to others to do the same, Margaret Keys dream of a larger, state-of-the-art library facility for the citizens of Apalachicola can happen all the more quickly. Sincerely, Susan Buzzett Clementson Apalachicola

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, October 20, 2011 to move that organization forward. If we cant show success, that would be a necessary approach (but) its really early. Commissioners frustra tion with Lloyd hung in the air, as each voiced varying degrees of anger over what they said had been a lack of transparency, communica tion and respect on Lloyds part. The tension reached a high point when Sanders told OBryant that she didnt wish to question Lloyd. I dont want to hear from her, I want to hear from you, Sanders said. Lloyd did not address the commission, sitting through out the meeting with mem bers of the Weems board. The meeting opened with Eastpoint attorney Yonclas reading aloud a six-page letter from Paul Marxsen, who chairs the all-volunteer Weems board. Marxsen, who teaches at Franklin County High School, wrote that he apol ogized for not being pres ent at the meeting because of his teaching duties. Still, his absence did not sit well with Commissioner Pinki Jackel. I think it is regrettable that the chair man of the board could not be here, she said. This is an important meeting. Marxsens letter sought to rebut a series of questions commissioners have raised over the last two months regarding hospital nances, Lloyds personnel decisions and other matters. He be gan by stressing that board members were not appear ing in an adversarial man ner and were hard-working volunteers doing the best we can to achieve better health care for the people of Franklin County. Marxsen wrote that if we have made mistakes, they are just that, mistakes, with no evil or bad motives. We do not deserve to be publicly maligned, chas tised or criticized. If you do not like what we do, you can replace us at any time. He wrote that after re viewing audio tapes of the commission meeting, much of what I heard is just misin formation which could have been diffused right then. Marxsen then apologized for the boards failure to make monthly reports to the com missioners, a requirement of the hospitals bylaws. That requirement was relaxed over time, due to mutual consent, he wrote. That was a mistakebe cause it cut off a direct chain of communication be tween our board and you. In her lengthy remarks following Marxsens letter, Jackel made clear where she felt responsibility for any lack of communication should fall, and her fellow commissioners appeared to be in agreement. If there is any misinfor mation between this board and the hospital board, that misinformation falls on the hospital board, she said. Youve had numerous op portunities; you can come any time. Chairman Noah Lock ley was the only commis sioner to note that he had met with Lloyd regarding hospital operations. To my knowledge, Miss Lloyd has not contacted any member of this board to meet us, to extend a hand to say. Im a part of this community. Nothing, said Jackel. The county commis sioner outlined what had happened following former Chief Financial Ofcer Kim Daviss hospital nancial report provided over the summer. Forty-ve minutes later, she (Davis) returned to the hospital and told she would be terminated, said Jackel. What kind of condence does this board have? I went to the hospital to speak to Miss Lloyd regarding that situation because I wanted to hear the other side. I went there and I was not welcome. I was treated as a stranger, and that did not bode very well for me how we operate in a small county. Dodds said County At torney Michael Shuler, who was absent from the meet ing because of his fathers surgery, had advised board members not to comment on personnel matters. Chair man Noah Lockley brought up an apparent controversy surrounding the departure of Weems East physician Dr. Lionel Catlin, and Sand ers brought up the recent decision by newly hired comptroller Buddy Mathes to leave his post following disagreements with Lloyd, but no details on either is sue were aired publicly. Regarding person nel issues, Commissioner Smokey Parrish stressed that despite rumors, he had not weighed in on any em ployee, but only asked that the entire board consider the applications for comp troller, and not just the smaller nance committee. As misinformation goes, I have never went to anyone who is employed and suggested that they hire anyone, he said. I do expect everyone who ap plies for the job to be treat ed fairly and adequately and equitably. I have never went to anyone and told them who to hire. Ive nev er even spoke to the CEO. Jackel was adamant that a new chief nancial ofcer be found as soon as possible. Weve been run ning a multimillion (dollar) business without a CFO in place since July, she said. Does that sound like sound operational manage ment by the board and hos pital staff in place? Marxsen wrote in his letter that a hospital oper ating balance of just $54,000 was misleading, because of upwards of $350,000 in a money market fund and cer ticates of deposit. We are nowhere near a position of running back to the county commission for more mon ey soon, he wrote. But Sanders per sisted in expressing concern over hospi tal nances, which she and fellow com missioners conced ed had happened on Colverts watch. I asked for CDs not to be touched, she said. Im wor ried when I look at numbers like this. I feel like were re gressing back to where we were at 2005. If theres any thing different, you all have to show it to us. I am not wanting to have the health care in this county regress back. We have made great strides, but we still have a long way to go. Sanders also did not take lightly Marxsens sugges tion that board members could be replaced. Im sorry if you all feel like we pressure you all too much, she told Dodds. Resign, resign, thats all youve got to do. We have to be ac countable to the people. We can take back some of that delegation of authority to the (Weems) board. Later in the meeting, Jackel moved, and the board passed unanimously, a mo tion to review the hospital bylaws to see if changes needed to be made regard ing policies and procedures. Marxsen went to con siderable lengths to outline progress and improvement with the hospital, ever since the aftermath of the DasSee days ve years ago, when the hospital nearly collapsed under the direction of a pri vate management group. Our prior CEO and the board left too many issues for the new CEO to handle, he wrote. It was too much to ask of the new CEO and it has lead to the perception that she is somehow tear ing down something, when she in reality is tackling something which should have been tackled a long time ago. Marxsen also defended the pay package being paid to Lloyd, which hospital board members after the meeting conrmed was $145,000 per year, plus an in centive program. (She) was hired at the lower end of the pay scale for CEOs, based on age and experience, he wrote. Yes, we could have found someone unqualied, and paid lessbut we, as a board, wanted more than that for the people of Frank lin County. Commissioners later questioned Matt Fuqua, the attorney sitting in for Shuler, re garding hospital executive salaries in Jackson County, where Fuqua is ac tive with the health care community. Marxsen claried that Weems pays TMH only $600 per year under the current management agreement, and that the Weems board retains its autonomy. TMH does not dictate anything to us, he wrote. TMH did not dictate our choice of CEO or the salary of the CEO. In fact, TMH did not tell us its #1 candidate until we chose our #1 candidate. Two issues also surfaced regarding the hospital, the rst from Commissioner Bevin Putnal, who com plained that an elderly man in Carrabelle had been told by a Weems East staffer that he would need to go to the main hospital to get his medications, and that the best thing to do would be to talk with a psychia trist, who was better able to make such a prescription. He walked out to keep from hurting somebody, said Putnal. This is a wellrespected, admired citizen of Carrabelle. We wont ever get him back; he found another doctor. Thats the kind of thing that we need to avoid, he said. I cant see where were improving our health care. I see us falling back. I dont know who hired these folks but you dont be that arrogant to the public when theyre sick because you be gin to lose patients. Theyre not going to use what were offering if they can nd it somewhere else. Sanders also voiced con cern that Lloyd had made unkind remarks about peo ple in Carrabelle. When you say certain statements to certain people it gets around, statements about Carrabelle people being ignorant, she said. I dont want to hear any more of those statements. People in this county are proud people and poor. These people want good health care, and thats all I want. When you make derogatory statements about someone in Franklin County, you make me mad.

Have you ever wondered how an elephant is kept under control by a rope and stake that could easily be broken by the massive animal? A baby elephant is taken into captivity when it is capable of being restricted, and as the animal grows, it does not realize it could easily break free from the bondage. The boundaries placed on the animal merely exist in its own mind. Over a period of only a few decades, the American student has become like the elephant that has the ability and power to exercise his rights yet succumbs to the bondage because of a lack of knowledge. In Daniel 6, under the advice of a jealous council, the king declared that anyone who prayed to any God other than the king would be thrown into a den of lions. The council knew of Daniels devoted prayer life and how he continued to pray, despite the order, three times a day in observance of his religious custom. The council entrapped Daniel and informed the king that he had broken the law, leaving the king no choice but to follow through with his decree. Daniel was thrown in the den, but the Lord sent an angel to shut the mouths of the lions. When the king realized that Daniels God had delivered him from death, he became a believer in God and had the council and all of their families thrown into the den to be devoured by the hungry lions. Daniel is an example to us that we must stand up for our religious freedom, maintain our integrity and be faithful to God at all cost. We are so blessed to live in a country where we are allowed to worship freely without fear of our lives. Sometimes, however, we are placed in a position where we must ght for what we believe in. The Christian believer has been controlled by fear and intimidation and has slowly given up ground that was fought so hard to gain by our forefathers who cherished our religious rights. Currently we are apathetic to our loss while we convince ourselves that if we keep a low prole, no resistance will come our way. We have convinced ourselves that if the battle does not directly affect us or ours, we have no need to be involved. The parents of the 1960s now live with the remorse of their indifference that earmarks our countrys moral descent. Our forefathers shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain more than 200 years ago. In writing the Declaration of Independence, they cited 27 biblical violations while proclaiming liberty and justice for all. There might have been men that were present the day of the signing who chose to remain anonymous. Because of their cowardliness, they never received any recognition with the absence of their signature. When someone claiming to be a Christian says or does something that is not Christ-like, the angry, loud crowd is there to point them out as a typical religious hypocrite. They seem mighty in number, but actually they are just sending the loudest message. It is sad there are many atheists who have read the entire Bible looking for ammunition to throw at Christians, while the Christians hardly read the Bible at all. Christianity was once viewed synonymously with integrity, and now the title bears little weight because the world sees no difference between the religious and the secular. We must rst clean out our own closets before going into battle. We must have clean hands and hearts if we expect the Lord to ght our battles for us. Our intent in ghting the good ght should be to gain ground for the kingdom, and not for the individual. You can research through the Internet the religious rights you may exercise in public and workplaces. Learn and implement them whenever possible. In situations where you are convinced your religious freedoms have been violated, you should try to address the problem locally. The person might not be aware of the violation, and the problem might be resolved easily through awareness and negotiation. If the situation is unresolved, the problem should be taken to a higher level until all levels are exhausted. When all else fails, might may need to contact a professional who specializes in religious freedoms. In order to win the hearts of those in authority like Daniel, we should stand rm in our belief with condence our Lord will deliver us. Also, we should take into account the character of Daniel, who fasted and prayed for Gods direction and was delivered because he was found innocent in his sight (v. 22). We welcome all suggestions and hope you enjoy this weekly article. Please send all emails to Scott Shiver at frontline247@ mac.com.

White sabatia owers freely, and the blooms have an almost iridescent quality. The plants are less than a foot tall and compact. White sabatia is native to the Pine Barrens and thrives in full sun. It is salt and drought-tolerant. Sabatias are members of the gentian family. White sabatia is a selfseeding annual, meaning rootstock survives only a single season. This plant grows in Ala bama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina and is rather common in our area, but it is considered an imperiled spe cies because of habitat loss. Though not commonly cul tivated, this attractive plant has real possibilities as a garden ower in our area. The seeds are borne in little ask-shaped pods that could easily be collected when ripe and started in con tainers or sown in a bright sandy site. Special to The Times That little hint of fall teasing us early each morning gives notice that one of area sportsmens most anticipated events is soon to occur. The fth annual Pan handle Sportsmans Ban quet will be Nov. 3. Port St. Joe Lions Club members are busy working to make this years event not on ly bigger and better than ever, but a special mo ment to remember. Attendees will enjoy the historic surroundings of the Port St. Joe Centen nial Building while social izing with numerous area sportsmen and enjoying appetizers of Apalachico la oysters, boiled shrimp and all the trimmings be ginning at 5 p.m. ET. The beverage bar will also open at that time. At 6:30 p.m. the serious eating begins. Chef Char lie Nortons famous, noman-left-hungry rib-eye steaks will take up a good portion of the dinner plate, leaving just enough room for the salad, potato and rolls. Dont forget to save room for Sisters almost equally famous banana pudding. The real winners at this years banquet, though, will be the beneciaries of the community ser vice projects supported by the Lions Club. More than $15,000 was raised at 2010s banquet for com munity service programs in the panhandle. There have been a few changes made to this years event. First is the location, the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe. Because of conicts between hunt ing seasons and the Nov. 3 date, the Box R Ranch was unavailable. The good news is the Centen nial Building will remove the threat of inclement weather and provide the backdrop of the historic building, erected in recog nition of the signing place of Floridas rst Constitu tion. Second, live music. Not just any live music, but as long as were be ing somewhat nostalgic, many of us remember the band Southern Satisfac tion from our high school dance era. They have not only aged well, but they are better than ever and agreed to make this years banquet even more special with a one-night reunion tour. Some of the bands past members will blend with the current group and add some spe cial music to the event. At 7:30 p.m., its time to let a few notches out of your belt and get ready for the real excitement. More than $20,000 worth of contributions and priz es will be distributed to the guests through silent auctions, live auctions and rafes. A few of the items offered will include shotguns, hunting ries, pistols, rods and reels and numerous other out door products. There will also be items available for women and children. This will mark the second year of the $8,000 cash drawing held during the event. The lucky winner could win up to $8,000 if his ticket is drawn last from the box, but each ticket holder will have a 1 in 25 chance of at least doubling their money. Tickets for the event are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. They can be purchased at Hannon Insurance and Ramseys Printing and Ofce Products in Port St. Joe and from any Lions Club member. Additional information or ticket purchases can be made by calling 227-1133, 227-7767 or 527-1338. By Travis Downey Florida Freedom Newspapers In Northwest Florida, the third week of October marks the opening of archery season for deer ant lered or antlerless offering what is widely regarded as the most fertile hunting period of the season. With most deer still in their sum mer patterns, the early archery sea son allows hunters to pattern deer more easily than during the latter stages of the hunting season, when deer have had far more encounters with humans. For a bow hunter, there is nothing like the early archery sea son, which this year opens Saturday, Oct. 22, and runs through Nov. 23. Theres not a lot of human con frontation during the offseason, so your chances of getting closer (to the animal) is at the rst of the season, said Craig Wittmeire, president of the Choctaw Bowmen Archery Club. But to increase your chances for a successful hunt, there are a few things to consider namely, ensur ing that you are properly outtted with a bow that ts you and selecting the correct draw weight and length. One way to measure your draw length is by standing with your arms spread out, palms facing forward. After measuring from the tip of one hand to the other, divide that number by 2.5. Generally speaking, a man weigh ing between 150 and 180 pounds can use a draw weight of 55 to 65 pounds. Most important, however, is ensuring that it is a proper t. You can kill anything with a 40pound bow that somebody can with a 70-pound bow, Wittmeire said. The idea is to shoot accurately and hit what youre shooting at. Thats where practice and lots of it comes in. To be a successful bow hunter, you have to put in the work, said Nick Whitney, a local bow hunter. Its the long shooting practices dur ing the summer when you would rather be at the beach. Its getting into the woods and scouting the area for signs of deer and making sure you have all the proper equipment to be safe in the stand so you can enjoy fu ture hunts. Whitney was rst introduced to the sport ve years ago while stationed at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississip pi. Despite a rather uneventful rst hunt I sat for ve hours the most boring thing I have ever done Whitney became hooked one year later when he saw his rst deer. His shot missed its intended mark, but a bow hunter was born. I went from staring at an ant crawling across my hand, bored out of my mind, to extreme adrenaline overload in a matter of seconds, Whitney said. Everything I felt in that short six seconds is why I am so passionate about bow hunting. The bow and arrow pre-date recorded history. A shaft with fletching, or feathers, bound to it was dated to 16,000 B.C. An arrow fired from a compound bow favored by todays hunters can travel up to 300 feet per second, or 200 mph. Pros of bow hunting: Fewer hunters in the woods; deer are not yet spooked because bow season comes before gun season; better chance of seeing a buck; more skill is required; you are much closer to the deer than when you are hunting by rifle. Cons of bow hunting: Much shorter shooting range, meaning a nice buck at 200, 150, 100 or 75 yards is going to be out of range; the equipment is bulker and more movement is required to use it; you need more hunting area to draw back a bow; there isnt much room for error whether it be nervousness or aim; tracking is often more difficult as the deer tend to run further. Why hunt by bow? Its a challenge. Because you have to wait for the deer to get very close, you are more likely to be detected either by scent or movement, evening the odds compared to hunting by gun. The cost? You can expect to spend from $300 to $700 for a decent compound bow, though there is a corresponding rise in price as the quality rises. Where to get advice? C&G Sporting Goods in downtown Panama City carries regular, compound and crossbows in stock, repairs bows and custom-makes arrows, and has staff on hand to answer bow hunting questions. You can also find equipment and advice at Kings Discount Drugs in Chipley, which as its name implies is not only an outdoors store, but can also provide you with some BC Powder after you shoot an arrow four feet over the back of a monster buck.

Strong numbers of trout are coming in, but most are too small to keep. Fishing the Fire Tower area and Pig Island seem to be producing good numbers with an occasional keeper. The Canal or I.C.W. is still holding a good amount of red sh and trout as well. Low water in the river systems has got the bass all schooled up. Great reports from anglers catching large amounts of bass from Apalachicola to the Dead Lakes this past week.

Organizer Mark Henderson said he has seen a bumper crop of runners already registered for the race, including runners from 26 states, the Czech Re public and Puerto Rico. The race will begin at 7:15 a.m. at Battery Park in Apala chicola, about 15 minutes later than last years start so that there will be more sunlight and allow things to get a little lighter, Henderson said. The course winds through East point and St. George Island be fore returning to Battery Park for the nish. The marathon course is certied by U.S.A. Track and Field, which means runners who post competitive times can use the results to qualify for the Boston Marathon or any other major that requires times to be set on a certied course. In addition to the 26.2-mile marathon, the race-day events also feature a half-marathon, 5k and 10k races and the newly introduced Ultra 50k, about 31 miles. You got to be an athlete to do that one, or a little insane, Henderson said. Each of the races feature wheelchair divisions and are designed to bring attention to the Apalachicola Bay area, one of the most beautiful and important estuaries in Ameri ca; create an avenue for char ity fundraising and to promote health and tness, Hender son said. Part of the proceeds from last years race went to area nonprots, including $500 to the Franklin County Humane Society and $500 to the Apala chicola Riverkeeper. Another $300 went to the Wounded War rior project and two $100 gifts to churches doing missionary work overseas. The race weekend will be gin with an expo from noon to 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at Battery Park Community Cen ter. Henderson said the event is free and open to the public and will give runners a chance to meet and become familiar with the race and pick up their bibs and bib numbers. One of the items Hender son is most proud of is a spe cially designed medal that features a view of Apalachic ola Bay and which last year was voted among the top ve medals in a national competi tion by Marathon and Beyond magazine. We beat out the New York and Boston mara thons, Henderson said. The race organizer also touted the economic benets of the race, which he estimat ed would bring in about 1,500 people, three times the eld of runners. These are new found tour ism dollars for the commu nity, he said, estimating that when overnight room rentals, meals and miscellaneous shop ping are factored in, as much as $250,000 would be brought into the county over the weekend. This does not in clude future dollars spent by any tourist who are introduced to the area and will come back for many years, he said. Runners this year hope to beat the times of last years inaugural race, won by a 49year-old postal worker from Mobile, Ala., Victor Birch, who nished one minute short of three hours. The top female nisher in 2010 was 37-year-old Jacque line Sasaki, a dermatologist from Gulfport, Miss, who was shooting to qualify for the Bos ton Marathon, needing a 3:45 time. She ended up nishing with a 3:15, 15 minutes better than what she had hoped for. For more informa tion, visit www.run ningforthebay.com.

By David Adlerstein SEAHAWK NATION PREPARES FOR HOMECOMING By David Adlerstein Times City Editor Led by an explosive performance from sophomore Dwayne Griggs, the Se ahawks football team traveled to Quin cys Corry Fields complex Friday night and overwhelmed Munroe 46-35. Griggs exploded for 245 yards rush ing on 12 carries, plus ve touchdowns and a two-point conversion, to pace a dominant offensive showing for Franklin County (3-4). Junior Skyler Hutchinson added 101 yards on ve carries and a touchdown for the Seahawks, while senior Bren nan Walden had 70 yards on three car ries and a TD. Junior fullback Cole Lee rushed for 73 yards on nine carries. We had a week of practice that trans ferred over to the eld and a great team effort, Franklin County coach Josh Wright said. Coming off a bad loss to Port St. Joe, this was a good game for the program. The Seahawks did all their scoring on the ground, with two touchdowns and two extra points by junior kicker Zach Howze in the rst quarter. The Seahawks and the Bobcats each posted touchdowns in the second quar ter, giving Franklin County a 21-7 half time lead. The Seahawks added two scores in the third quarter while ceding six points to the Bobcats to build a 34-13 lead. In the nal stanza, the Seahawks scored twice but managed no extra points, while Munroe tallied 22 points.

Local A10 | The Times Thursday, October 20, 2011 meetings. Pierce said Assistant County Planner Mark Curenton, highly regarded for his expertise in many of the technical aspects of city and regional planning, had made clear he did not want to be considered for the job. Hes very good with what he does but he recognizes (his limits). He has a much different approach from what I do, said Pierce. Commissioner Pinki Jackel praised Curenton, who was not present at the meeting, as well as Pierce. We appreciate you, she told him. You work very hard and yours has got to be one of the most difcult jobs in the world. We appreciate you and thank you for the job you do. Replacing you will be difcult but you can always nd a way to chime back in if you need to. Commissioner Smokey Parrish said the board should consider reducing the positions responsibili ties. The salary for that will be reduced also, he said. Pierce said he planned to provide the board with a single job description for a post that he hoped could be renamed. It presumes Im accounting to a county ad ministrator, he said. My intention is to give you one job description, and I would call it county coordinator. In her motion to accept Pierces retirement, Jackel stipulated that Pierces re placement need not have a college degree. I do not want to see a college degree as a requirement only, she said. In lieu of experience, many years experience, must be considered as a package. We have the superinten dent not required to have a college degree. We have a lot of local talent, we need to look at experience, manage ment experience, as com pensating factors, she said.

Local A14 | The Times Thursday, October 20, 2011 Apalachicola High School, sells lightly-used building supplies at cut-rate prices. Rob Peterson, Habitats builder, said donations can be made to sponsor any portion of a house from a roof, to a two-by-four, to a square foot of concrete. He said you can put your name on any donation, no matter how small. Pam Ashley said sympa thy cards or holiday cards are available that include a donation to Habitat for Humanity as a gift or me morial. Prospective homeown ers must be able to pay for the house and must invest 400 hours of sweat equity volunteering for Habitat. Sweat equity can be earned by helping with construc tion or earning a GED. Pam Ashley said Habitat likes to build houses at ve to six-month intervals to give the next family in line time to build sweat equity before work on their house begins. Consideration is also given to need. Those cho sen to receive a Habitat house must provide a $500 down payment. Homeown ers then pay off the no-in terest loan over 20 years. She said payments can be as low as $500 to $600 per month with insurance and taxes included. Ashley said Habitat puts people into houses that will still be standing after 50 years. When building a house, Franklin County Habitat has build days once a week on Saturday, but oth er arrangements can be made for those wishing to volunteer. Volunteers with limited construction skills who are anxious to learn and dedicate more than just one day of time, can work as part of our team of regular volunteers. You may bring your own tools although it isnt necessary; please label them if you do. Construction volunteers must be at least 16 years old and are required to sign a waiver and release of li ability form. According to Habitat Internationals website, the organization was founded on the conviction that ev ery man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat and its homeowner families have built or rehabilitated more than 400,000 houses. A non prot, nondenominational Christian housing ministry, Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and re ligions to build together in partnership. The current Franklin County board of directors is Pam Ashley, chair: Ella Bond, vice chair and fam ily selection committee; Lori Switzer secretary; Cliff Butler, treasurer; John Sink, church rela tions and nance; Kristy Branch Banks, legal; Rob Peterson, builder and Skip Frink. To volunteer, make a do nation or request a house, go to www.habitatfranklin. org/Contact.aspx, or visit the ReStore at the old Apalachicola High School on 14th Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. two families who operated the still, and who were reputedly well-to-do. Others say the cemetery was multiracial. Brown, who grew up in Apalachicola, remembers coming to Carrabelle to ride horseback during the 1960s. The cemetery was one of her favorite haunts, no pun intended. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, something bad began to happen at the graveyard. Headstones began to topple and even disappear. Carrabelle Mayor Curley Messer, who was a police ofcer around this time, remembers being called to stop a boy from digging up one of the graves. At that time, the cemetery contained ornate monuments, up to 5 feet tall, he said. A lot of bones began turning up in peoples yards and along the highway, said Brown. Old-timers contend the person who owned the property at this time wanted the graves removed so he could develop the land. It is rumored he sold the topsoil, including the gravestones and contents of the graves, for use as ller under Fourth Street. Some say that even before this, the graves were violated by grave robbers seeking jewelry. Messer recalled how his late wife Audrey took pictures of the vandalism and wrote numerous letters to public ofcials to stop it, to no avail. He said the desecration was nally ended by Mayor Snow Cook after a boy was caught displaying a skull on a broomstick near Carrabelles eastern city limits. The Third Street Cemetery was rediscovered during the 2009 Carrabelle Historical Preservation Survey, when historian Beth LaCivita was able to locate just two tombstones. A foot stone bears the surname Pooser. A headstone has the inscription: James Butler, Born Jan 14, 1891, Died Oct. 27, 1918. The Lord is my Shepard. Both Pooser and Butler are names found in Isle of Rest, Carrabelles traditionally AfricanAmerican burial site, supporting the idea the Third Street Cemetery contained the remains of the owners of Popes Still, reputedly very prosperous. Carrabelle has a few other macabre sites. There is a hanging tree, and once upon a time, the city was home to one of the largest casket companies in the southern U.S. According to Echoes of Carrabelle, Ed and Dick Bussan, of Indiana, established the Carrabelle Casket Company in 1953. The plant manufactured steel and copper cofns. These were assembled, painted and lined with foam rubber and silk at the Carrabelle factory. The plant was rst established in a room next to the movie theatre, but later moved to the colored school house, before nally occupying a building constructed to house it. City Clerk Keisha Smith said she remembers telling stories about the Casket Company building and playing in it as a child. Employees of the Casket Company included Cecil Millender, who married Ed Bussans daughter, Kay, shortly after they graduated from high school in 1956. Also listed as employees in Echoes of Carrabelle, were Ronnie Swords, Ed Bratton, Dick Thalls, Mickey Gay, Pansy Walden, Kate Bussen and Ruth and Bobby Millender. The Carrabelle Casket Company was the rst to manufacture metal cofns in the southern U.S. and one of the most important employers in Carrabelle. dbutler@coastalcoverage.com Locally owned and operated to meet all your insurance needs Gun Show October 29th & 30th Panama City Panama City Fairgrounds Fairgrounds 2038646 Sat 9 -5 Sun 10-4 C o n c e a l e d W e a p o n s C l a s s S a t / S u n 1 1 o r 2 Floridagunshows.com FREE PARKING LOIS SWOBODA | The Times The Butler headstone RESIDENT from page A1 ETERNITY from page A1 LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Habitat for Humanitys board of directors HABITAT from page A1 became blind in one eye, due to diabetes. Harris came to live with him as his adopted granddaughter in 1957 at the age of 12. Smith was 84. Prior to moving into his home, Harris and her mother, Emma Floyd, rented one of three houses owned by Smith. Harris became pregnant while still in school. Smith adopted the child, Daisy Mae Jones, and raised her as well. Harris remained with him until her marriage at age 19. After her marriage, her daughter lived with Smith until shortly before his death. Smith left his properties to Harris and Jones, but because he had no insurance, Harris said she traded the properties to the funeral home to cover the cost of the funeral. Smith is in one of the many unmarked graves at Isle of Rest. There was no charge for the plot itself, since burials there are informal and the land is publicly owned. Harris did receive a small legacy from her grandfather. She said Smith had a habit of burying money in jars around his home. Mrs. Sallie Mae Walker, who was the Mother of the church where Smith was deacon, knew the whereabouts of his cache and helped Harris to retrieve a large coffee jar containing money. Harris said two of Smiths close friends were Walter Edwards and Willie Lee Benjamin. Smith died in a nursing home in Blountstown July, 1978. Tyler, greatgranddaughter of Aunt Laura Wiggins, also called to conrm that Wiggins is buried in Isle of Rest in an unmarked grave next to her daughter, Savannah Brown. Wiggins lived to be 111 years old so she, too, was older than Walker. Wiggins was born in 1844 and shared many stories of life as a slave with Tyler who has promised to share them with the Times, but thats another story.

After a lengthy backand-forth with Weems board members Nick Yonclas and Gayle Dodds regarding hospital nances and policies, Commissioner Cheryl Sanders moved for Lloyds immediate ouster. But following an appeal for more time from Mark OBryant, CEO of Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, Sanders agreed to give TMH and Weems about three months to implement an action plan that incorporates the commissioners concerns. TMH employs both Lloyd and Chief Nursing Ofcer Cindy Drapal under an afliation agreement with Weems, although both salaries are fully funded out of Weems operational revenues. Sanders motion passed unanimously and delays any action on Lloyds ring until at least Jan. 17, when commissioners intend to revisit the motion. Sanders told OBryant she was making her motion because of her feeling that Lloyd, who began July 18 as former CEO Chuck Colverts successor, was not the right t for the county. When you lose your condence in somebody, thats a bad situation, she said. Weve lost condence. I do not feel like Miss Lloyd is appropriate for Franklin County. The condence is lost out there; Im asking for you to take care of the situation. This is the rst time Ive gotten any communication from her whatsoever, said Sanders. We pay her salary and shes not looking out for us in the best interest of the people. I think that she needs to be moving on. Questions arose whether a termination decision was the responsibility of TMH, which had overseen the hiring process, or the Weems board, which gave its approval in the spring for hiring Lloyd, 40, from among a eld of ve nalists. OBryant made clear that such a personnel decision was ultimately in the hands of the Weems board. We work under the direction of the (Weems) board; we work by contract to them, he said. I would ask that you not take that action now, that you give us some time. There is a lot of work that needs to be done in that organization, he said. I would ask that you give us some time to address the concerns of the community and organization, and demonstrate plans Experiencing Ethiopia, AA4Thursday, October 20, 2011 Vo O L. 126 ISSUE 25 IIndex County weighs Weems CEEO ringBy LLois SSwoboda Times Staff Writer On Oct. 11, Franklin County Habitat for Humanity held its annual meeting at the Eastpoint Firehouse, attended by more than 25 people, many of them prospective homeowners. Habitat President Pam Ashley told the assembly that Centennial Bank and Superior Bank have each donated a lot in Eastpoints Magnolia Ridge subdivision. She said Habitat has enough money to construct one house, at a cost of about $65 per square foot. An architect is working on plans for the home, which Ashley said will have four bedrooms and house a family with three children. This will be the rst two-story Habitat house constructed in the county. Ashley and her husband Don co-chair Habitats fundraising committee. Once again, next years Mardi Gras celebration will be the main fundraiser. The party will expand and take place on two days, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 3 and 4, 2012. Habitat is also moving the celebration to a larger venue, the Fort Coombs Armory. In the past, Mardi Gras was held at the Dixie Theatre. A parade is planned for Friday evening; Saturdays event will be a gala dinner, possibly a seafood cookout.

My schedule is September 2012, he told county commissioners at the tail end of his traditional report. I think its going to take a while to get this done. Pierce, who also holds the title of director of administrative services, outlined a time frame that would see him providing a job description to commissioners next month. Following a period of advertising for the job, Pierce said he envisioned the board conducting interviews in January, with their subsequent selection then working with Pierce until March or April. Pierce said he plans to draw on accumulated leave time to span the period until September, when he will retire on or about his 57th birthday. He said that he had reviewed the nancial picture and determined that the nancial gain of fully retiring at age 62 was offset by his desire to take advantage of other options while still fairly young.

On Saturday, Oct. 8, on St. George Island, the three-day Franklin County Oyster Festival was attended by a couple hundred visitors and residents. Organizer Elaine Rosenthal said the festival was hosted by the St. George Island Business Association and business interests in Eastpoint, and if there are any prots, they will be used to help the businesses fund other events that will bring visitors to the area. The festival received two BP grants that are administered by the Tourist Development Council. A grant was also received from the Florida Bureau of Seafood & Aquacultures Florida Gulf Safe program, with additional funds coming from donated services and the treasury of the business association. The shing tournament had 37 entrants, despite it being a very windy day. Included in the entry fee of $20 was a tournament T-shirt. At the weigh-in at the new Eastpoint Patton Street Pavilion, the $1,000 prize for largest ounder, at 2.24 pounds, went to Robert Guzik of Lake Leelanau, Mich. A friend of Guziks rented a house on SGI and invited Richard to stay there. Tournament organizers said a larger ounder was caught by a fellow who was unable to produce a shing license and so had to be disqualied after a call to the state agency that tracks shing licenses said that he hadnt held one since 2008. The largest trout, at 2.395 pounds, was caught by Bob Hoelzle, of Tallahassee, who has been shing in Franklin County for many years. In fact, he said, that hed move here if he could. The largest whiting, at 0.93 pounds, was caught by Devin Gay of Apalachicola for a prize of $500. Devin celebrated his success by showing off a few moves on the dance oor when the music resumed. The shucking tournaments, also held at the new pavilion, were judged by County Commissioner Pinki Jackel. The two $100 winners were Tracey Carroll, of Eastpoint, and April Dalton of Eastpoint. The $300 Master Shucker award went to Michael OLear, from Panama City Beach. Close to 20 non-prot agencies (or for-prots that had agreed to donate their earnings to non-prots) set up tents in lighthouse park on the island for the Saturday Food Court and Kids in the Park. Some sold food, or other items such as T-shirts, while others presented educational materials. BP grant monies paid for oysters so that three non-prots could sell them at a low cost. The SGI Civic Club prepared the fried oysters and hushpuppies, the Lighthouse Association had the roasted oysters, and the parents and friends of Donna Barbers fourth grade class (which is saving for an end-of-the-school year trip) sold oysters on the half-shell. The lines for the oysters were long and by 1:30 p.m., the booths had completely exhausted 25 bags and 10 gallons of oysters. At 12:30 p.m., Close Up, a musical duo featuring Kenny and Joe, performed popular music for the crowd during the next few hours. Beginning at 1 p.m. special events were added for kids. The Yacht Club entertained over 150 kids with races and games. Coo Coo the Clown, Raggedy Anne, some animal pals, and a number of pirates appeared in the crowd. During the two weeks leading up to the festival and during the festival, rafe tickets could be purchased, with the buyer given an Oyster Festival T-shirt. The drawing was to be during the Saturday night concert, but a windstorm and rain cut the concert short, Rosenthal said, and it was instead held during the Sunday afternoon concerts which were moved to Harry As because the weather was still windy & rainy. Performers included Brian Bowen, Rick Ott Band and Seth Walker Band. First place winner of a beach house weekend, which included a $200 gas card and a $200 shopping spree went to Tennessean Gina Nash. The second place prize, a deep-sea shing trip with Journeys of St. George, went to Lisa Howe of Valdosta, Ga. She and seven other women have been coming to the island each year that an oyster festival has been held, since 2007. This year they titled their trip A Celebration of Life in honor of one of the women who is recovering from cancer. The third place prize, a Bounty of the Bay boating trip with Journeys of St. George, was won by John Kraynak of Tallahassee, who came on Saturday to spend the day at the festival. The festival began on Friday with a dinner of fried oysters and/or mullet provided by the Franklin County Seafood Workers at 6 p.m. They brought an oyster boat and also sold oysters on the half-shell. The concert by Bill Wharton & the Ingredients that evening featured their unique style of high-energy blues as Bill cooked a 20-gallon pot of gumbo, complete with local shrimp, onstage. At the end of the concert, everyone ate gumbo. Rosenthal said 350 people were at the outdoor concert located in the Chili Cook-off parking lot. The next night, the Humane Society sold dinners of grilled chicken and shrimp before the 7 p.m. concert with ACME Rhythm and Blues from Tallahassee. Hardly 45 minutes into the concert, a heavy windstorm with torrential rain erupted and ended the concert. Other Eastpoint festivities took place as the rain date for I Love Eastpoint Day, canceled last month during a squall. Here too there was live music and lots of food.Oyster festival fun attracts day trippers LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Celebrity shuckers at the Franklin County Oyster Festival.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola TimesBy Deanna SimmonsSpecial to the Times Salaam, Indeed my todays are far better than my yesterdays (thank God). I am well, the heart and soul of Zion is amazing, the people are beautiful, and the landscape is breathtaking. Life here is very different, but I dont have to tell you that. Three weeks ago, we celebrated the Ethiopian New Year. It is now 2004 over here. The holidays, traditions, and culture are all so interesting and new to me. The Orthodox churches wake me up most mornings around 3 a.m., chanting in some old, sacred language that 99 percent of the people dont understand. That is because 15 out of 30 days a month honor some saint. Two days a week are fasting days. And we just celebrated Meskal, a holiday I have never ever heard of. It was beautiful. Hundreds of thousands of people wearing white, holding hands, and singing. Quite a sight. I keep busy these days by researching the needs of my community in order to knowledgeably write proposals to implement sustainable health-related programs. I also teach English to orphans on the weekends. These kids absolutely love to learn. They understand the value of education more than the kiddies I tutored stateside, but I guess when you have less opportunity you appreciate opportunity more. They dont mess around. The weather is becoming more tolerable. It was so cold last month and the two months before. Every other day was a hail storm. And when millions of nickel-sized hail balls cascade onto a tin roof it sounds similar to War! (Or so Id imagine; I hope I never have to nd out.) It is getting hotter and drier, which is great because it reduces the tremendous mold problem. And, oh yeah, it is (or at least was) a tremendous mold problem. I recently moved housing because of the issue. Luckily, I do not NEED anything. It took me 25 years to distinguish the difference between luxuries and necessities. For example, toilet tissue, clean natural (unboiled) water, Lysol and American chewing gum are luxuries. Previously, I was grossly confused. I thank God daily for the struggles that help me to decipher and appreciate the difference. I have never been so appreciative in my entire life! It took me one whole month just to get a library card. The security clearance was strenuous. This is a liberty and convenience I never thought to acknowledge in the past. I have learned how to milk a cow and boil the milk for breakfast. Ive killed a chicken, chopped rewood, herded goats and learned more about myself and my people in four months than I ever did in four years of college. I know that God has favor upon me and he has lessened the hardship of international transition for me. Like I said, I thank God that my todays are better, far better, than my yesterdays. I look forward to each and every tomorrow. I know that the sun (son) will be there shining for me. Dehna Hugni, Apalachicola resident Deanna Simmons, daughter of Franklin County High School teacher Elinor Mount-Simmons, is a twoyear volunteer with the Peace Corps in Injabara, Ethiopia, serving as a health economic development advisor.PHOTO COURTESY OF DEa A NNa A SS IMMONSDeanna Simmons, left, in white Meskal holiday garb, sits with an Ethiopian friend.My todays are better than my yesterdays According to a New York Times political story written by Jay Root, Ross Ramsey and Jim Rutenberg last week, one of the fields of Presidential candidates was identified as bending, creating or vetoing new state laws and regulations to favor large contributors and political friends. The article further tells how his friend, lobbyist X has tapped donors, business allies and indebted lawmakers to help candidate X accomplish ambitious political and legislative goals embodying a pay-to-play culture. The writers of the article tell of one lawmaker who was told that if he did not vote a certain way, he might be on the receiving end of a business-backed campaign that would oust him. Just big business and politics as usual, you say? Washington and state capitol politics as usual? Candidates and their behind-thescenes supporters doing what it is they do in order to run our world, you say? Thats just the way it is, you sigh? What do you really think of the pay to play culture of which the New York Times authors write? Do you believe it is what we now accept as politics as usual? Do you believe it is the way government, or any business should be done? Do you believe that it should be the one with the gold who can make the rules? And do you believe this kind of pay to play only occurs in big cities, in big government, with big-time politicians? Do you throw up your hands in disgust when you read about corruption identified at national levels? But what if you knew it was going on in local government, close to home? What do you think about those who take advantage of their elected power and status to demand something extra in return for their governments business? Do you believe public contracts should be awarded to those who offer something extra behind the scenes to the officials in charge? Is a mayor who demands a kickback from a service business any different than a policeman taking a bribe to fix a ticket? Should such pay-for-play behind-the-scenes bonuses be accepted as a standard in the facts of todays world? Are they acceptable as just a cost of doing business, and just the way it is at all levels of national as well as local government, and indeed, within everyday life itself? Is such behavior not really unusual at all, but done everywhere, by everyone? Does that make it OK? Do you think all politicians and their minions are crooked, dishonest or at the very least, out for their own self-interests? Do you think because everyone does it, such behavior is acceptable after all? Is it futile to hope for, or to expect to find an honest politician or even businessman? Do you wish government, and real life, could be conducted with ethics and integrity, or do you despair at the naivet of such a hope? And what happens to those leaders, or even their staff or supporters who demand such kickbacks? Is the constable who takes a bribe ever disciplined? What about the trusted banker who shouldnt have been trusted after all? Who watches for the politicians with their hands out, or the dealmakers behind the scenes? Does anyone really demand or even expect honesty from their elected representatives and community leaders? When government representatives are re-elected as if to ignore or even approve of their known transgressions what does that say about all of us? Statesman and philosopher Edmund Burke (1729-1797) warned, All who have ever written on government are unanimous, that among a people generally corrupt, liberty cannot long exist. Perhaps we really do get what we deserve? Mel Kelly is a frequent contributor to the Apalachicola and Carrabelle Times.Tired of pay-to-play politics? TTHOUGHTS FOR THE TTIMESMel KellySpecial to the TimesTeen drivers are approximately 50 percent more likely to crash in the rst month of having their license than they are after a full year of experience driving on their own. Analyzing the crashes of new drivers in North Carolina, researchers found that three common mistakes failure to reduce speed, inattention, and failure to yield accounted for 57 percent of all crashes in which teens were at least partially responsible during their rst month of licensed driving. Additionally, when researchers looked at specic types of crashes in relation to how long the driver had been licensed, they found that some types of crashes occurred at relatively high rates at rst and declined particularly quickly with experience. The study illustrated changes in teen behavior when a parent is no longer in the car. While the vast majority of driving caught on camera was uneventful, the study did capture a number of close calls due to simple mistakes likely attributable to inexperience, along with a few instances of texting behind the wheel, horseplay with passengers, running red lights, and other potentially distracting or dangerous behaviors. AAA suggests the following steps parents can take to improve their teens safety as they learn to drive on their own: Practice, practice, practice: Once teens have their actual license, continue to practice together to ensure that basic skills are mastered and to introduce varied driving conditions (snow, heavy trafc, rural roads) with an experienced driver in the passenger seat. Keep passengers out: Teen drivers crash risks multiply with teenage passengers in the vehicle. Set limits and enforce them consistently. Limit night driving: Reduced visibility makes night driving riskier for drivers of all ages. For inexperienced teens, its even harder. Allow new teen drivers to drive at night only if truly necessary or to practice with a parent. Keep setting rules: Parents can and should set and enforce rules above and beyond their state laws. In addition to night and passenger limits, set rules for inclement weather, highways, cities, or other driving conditions in which a teen has not gained enough experience. Find a parent-teen driving agreement on TeenDriving.AAA.com. that can help. First month most dangerous for teen drivers LETTERS TO THE EdDITORA sad day for E E astpointToday was a very sad day for Eastpoint. A landmark of our own burned down. The owner of a house, Aurther L. Tucker, Sr., was a pioneer of sorts. He owned a seafood company employing many locals for years and was the first one to actually can crabmeat. Provided seafood and jobs for years. His son, Aurther L. Tucker, Jr., also helped employ many, and was recognized for his work on getting the breakwater in here to protect our shores. It is so sad to know that these two have done so much and was recognized so little. For us Eastpointers, his home should have been preserved as a Historical Home. Not because of the age, but of the history, Eastpoint counts, too. Thank you,Mildred M. SpencerEastpointAbove ground utility poles an unwelcome slapMy husband and I recently left a too-short Apalachicola weekend visit with a large, delicious redfish he caught, new bookish pals from Autumn Authors in Apalachicola, and a renewed affection for the historic downtown landscape. When the publisher (National Geographic Society) featured my book in New Orleans this summer at a library conference, we didnt see aboveground utilities in historic districts. Nor are aboveground utility poles landmarks of historic Savannah, Charleston, Historic Williamsburg, or closer to home, historic Mission San Luis in Tallahassee. Please impress upon all that new aboveground utility poles imposed through Apalachicola will be a slap to all the arduous work the community accomplished, to present this treasured town to the world as a visual jewel.Jan Godown AnninoTallahasseeTT hank you, M M r. Watkins, for a generous offerOn behalf of the Board of the Apalachicola Municipal Library, it is with profound gratitude that I thank Mr. J. Ben Watkins for his generous offer of an additional $125,000 to be added to the Margaret Key bequest. Our little library helps to serve the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of all the members of the community. Because of his magnanimous contribution, and his challenge to others to do the same, Margaret Keys dream of a larger, state-of-the-art library facility for the citizens of Apalachicola can happen all the more quickly. Sincerely,Susan Buzzett ClementsonApalachicola

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, October 20, 2011to move that organization forward. If we cant show success, that would be a necessary approach (but) its really early. Commissioners frustration with Lloyd hung in the air, as each voiced varying degrees of anger over what they said had been a lack of transparency, communication and respect on Lloyds part. The tension reached a high point when Sanders told OBryant that she didnt wish to question Lloyd. I dont want to hear from her, I want to hear from you, Sanders said. Lloyd did not address the commission, sitting throughout the meeting with members of the Weems board. The meeting opened with Eastpoint attorney Yonclas reading aloud a six-page letter from Paul Marxsen, who chairs the all-volunteer Weems board. Marxsen, who teaches at Franklin County High School, wrote that he apologized for not being present at the meeting because of his teaching duties. Still, his absence did not sit well with Commissioner Pinki Jackel. I think it is regrettable that the chairman of the board could not be here, she said. This is an important meeting. Marxsens letter sought to rebut a series of questions commissioners have raised over the last two months regarding hospital nances, Lloyds personnel decisions and other matters. He began by stressing that board members were not appearing in an adversarial manner and were hard-working volunteers doing the best we can to achieve better health care for the people of Franklin County. Marxsen wrote that if we have made mistakes, they are just that, mistakes, with no evil or bad motives. We do not deserve to be publicly maligned, chastised or criticized. If you do not like what we do, you can replace us at any time. He wrote that after reviewing audio tapes of the commission meeting, much of what I heard is just misinformation which could have been diffused right then. Marxsen then apologized for the boards failure to make monthly reports to the commissioners, a requirement of the hospitals bylaws. That requirement was relaxed over time, due to mutual consent, he wrote. That was a mistakebecause it cut off a direct chain of communication between our board and you. In her lengthy remarks following Marxsens letter, Jackel made clear where she felt responsibility for any lack of communication should fall, and her fellow commissioners appeared to be in agreement. If there is any misinformation between this board and the hospital board, that misinformation falls on the hospital board, she said. Youve had numerous opportunities; you can come any time. Chairman Noah Lockley was the only commissioner to note that he had met with Lloyd regarding hospital operations. To my knowledge, Miss Lloyd has not contacted any member of this board to meet us, to extend a hand to say. Im a part of this community. Nothing, said Jackel. The county commissioner outlined what had happened following former Chief Financial Ofcer Kim Daviss hospital nancial report provided over the summer. Forty-ve minutes later, she (Davis) returned to the hospital and told she would be terminated, said Jackel. What kind of condence does this board have? I went to the hospital to speak to Miss Lloyd regarding that situation because I wanted to hear the other side. I went there and I was not welcome. I was treated as a stranger, and that did not bode very well for me how we operate in a small county. Dodds said County Attorney Michael Shuler, who was absent from the meeting because of his fathers surgery, had advised board members not to comment on personnel matters. Chairman Noah Lockley brought up an apparent controversy surrounding the departure of Weems East physician Dr. Lionel Catlin, and Sanders brought up the recent decision by newly hired comptroller Buddy Mathes to leave his post following disagreements with Lloyd, but no details on either issue were aired publicly. Regarding personnel issues, Commissioner Smokey Parrish stressed that despite rumors, he had not weighed in on any employee, but only asked that the entire board consider the applications for comptroller, and not just the smaller nance committee. As misinformation goes, I have never went to anyone who is employed and suggested that they hire anyone, he said. I do expect everyone who applies for the job to be treated fairly and adequately and equitably. I have never went to anyone and told them who to hire. Ive never even spoke to the CEO. Jackel was adamant that a new chief nancial ofcer be found as soon as possible. Weve been running a multimillion (dollar) business without a CFO in place since July, she said. Does that sound like sound operational management by the board and hospital staff in place? Marxsen wrote in his letter that a hospital operating balance of just $54,000 was misleading, because of upwards of $350,000 in a money market fund and certicates of deposit. We are nowhere near a position of running back to the county commission for more money soon, he wrote. But Sanders persisted in expressing concern over hospital nances, which she and fellow commissioners conceded had happened on Colverts watch. I asked for CDs not to be touched, she said. Im worried when I look at numbers like this. I feel like were regressing back to where we were at 2005. If theres anything different, you all have to show it to us. I am not wanting to have the health care in this county regress back. We have made great strides, but we still have a long way to go. Sanders also did not take lightly Marxsens suggestion that board members could be replaced. Im sorry if you all feel like we pressure you all too much, she told Dodds. Resign, resign, thats all youve got to do. We have to be accountable to the people. We can take back some of that delegation of authority to the (Weems) board. Later in the meeting, Jackel moved, and the board passed unanimously, a motion to review the hospital bylaws to see if changes needed to be made regarding policies and procedures. Marxsen went to considerable lengths to outline progress and improvement with the hospital, ever since the aftermath of the DasSee days ve years ago, when the hospital nearly collapsed under the direction of a private management group. Our prior CEO and the board left too many issues for the new CEO to handle, he wrote. It was too much to ask of the new CEO and it has lead to the perception that she is somehow tearing down something, when she in reality is tackling something which should have been tackled a long time ago. Marxsen also defended the pay package being paid to Lloyd, which hospital board members after the meeting conrmed was $145,000 per year, plus an incentive program. (She) was hired at the lower end of the pay scale for CEOs, based on age and experience, he wrote. Yes, we could have found someone unqualied, and paid lessbut we, as a board, wanted more than that for the people of Franklin County. Commissioners later questioned Matt Fuqua, the attorney sitting in for Shuler, regarding hospital executive salaries in Jackson County, where Fuqua is active with the health care community. Marxsen claried that Weems pays TMH only $600 per year under the current management agreement, and that the Weems board retains its autonomy. TMH does not dictate anything to us, he wrote. TMH did not dictate our choice of CEO or the salary of the CEO. In fact, TMH did not tell us its #1 candidate until we chose our #1 candidate. Two issues also surfaced regarding the hospital, the rst from Commissioner Bevin Putnal, who complained that an elderly man in Carrabelle had been told by a Weems East staffer that he would need to go to the main hospital to get his medications, and that the best thing to do would be to talk with a psychiatrist, who was better able to make such a prescription. He walked out to keep from hurting somebody, said Putnal. This is a wellrespected, admired citizen of Carrabelle. We wont ever get him back; he found another doctor. Thats the kind of thing that we need to avoid, he said. I cant see where were improving our health care. I see us falling back. I dont know who hired these folks but you dont be that arrogant to the public when theyre sick because you begin to lose patients. Theyre not going to use what were offering if they can nd it somewhere else. Sanders also voiced concern that Lloyd had made unkind remarks about people in Carrabelle. When you say certain statements to certain people it gets around, statements about Carrabelle people being ignorant, she said. I dont want to hear any more of those statements. People in this county are proud people and poor. These people want good health care, and thats all I want. When you make derogatory statements about someone in Franklin County, you make me mad.

Have you ever wondered how an elephant is kept under control by a rope and stake that could easily be broken by the massive animal? A baby elephant is taken into captivity when it is capable of being restricted, and as the animal grows, it does not realize it could easily break free from the bondage. The boundaries placed on the animal merely exist in its own mind. Over a period of only a few decades, the American student has become like the elephant that has the ability and power to exercise his rights yet succumbs to the bondage because of a lack of knowledge. In Daniel 6, under the advice of a jealous council, the king declared that anyone who prayed to any God other than the king would be thrown into a den of lions. The council knew of Daniels devoted prayer life and how he continued to pray, despite the order, three times a day in observance of his religious custom. The council entrapped Daniel and informed the king that he had broken the law, leaving the king no choice but to follow through with his decree. Daniel was thrown in the den, but the Lord sent an angel to shut the mouths of the lions. When the king realized that Daniels God had delivered him from death, he became a believer in God and had the council and all of their families thrown into the den to be devoured by the hungry lions. Daniel is an example to us that we must stand up for our religious freedom, maintain our integrity and be faithful to God at all cost. We are so blessed to live in a country where we are allowed to worship freely without fear of our lives. Sometimes, however, we are placed in a position where we must ght for what we believe in. The Christian believer has been controlled by fear and intimidation and has slowly given up ground that was fought so hard to gain by our forefathers who cherished our religious rights. Currently we are apathetic to our loss while we convince ourselves that if we keep a low prole, no resistance will come our way. We have convinced ourselves that if the battle does not directly affect us or ours, we have no need to be involved. The parents of the 1960s now live with the remorse of their indifference that earmarks our countrys moral descent. Our forefathers shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain more than 200 years ago. In writing the Declaration of Independence, they cited 27 biblical violations while proclaiming liberty and justice for all. There might have been men that were present the day of the signing who chose to remain anonymous. Because of their cowardliness, they never received any recognition with the absence of their signature. When someone claiming to be a Christian says or does something that is not Christ-like, the angry, loud crowd is there to point them out as a typical religious hypocrite. They seem mighty in number, but actually they are just sending the loudest message. It is sad there are many atheists who have read the entire Bible looking for ammunition to throw at Christians, while the Christians hardly read the Bible at all. Christianity was once viewed synonymously with integrity, and now the title bears little weight because the world sees no difference between the religious and the secular. We must rst clean out our own closets before going into battle. We must have clean hands and hearts if we expect the Lord to ght our battles for us. Our intent in ghting the good ght should be to gain ground for the kingdom, and not for the individual. You can research through the Internet the religious rights you may exercise in public and workplaces. Learn and implement them whenever possible. In situations where you are convinced your religious freedoms have been violated, you should try to address the problem locally. The person might not be aware of the violation, and the problem might be resolved easily through awareness and negotiation. If the situation is unresolved, the problem should be taken to a higher level until all levels are exhausted. When all else fails, might may need to contact a professional who specializes in religious freedoms. In order to win the hearts of those in authority like Daniel, we should stand rm in our belief with condence our Lord will deliver us. Also, we should take into account the character of Daniel, who fasted and prayed for Gods direction and was delivered because he was found innocent in his sight (v. 22).

Corner of Marina Drive, Port St. Joe, FL(next to Piggly Wiggly)www.BWOsh.comYour Hunting Headquarters REG $39.99 SALE PRICE $29.99 10X50 BINOCULARS BUCHNELL FALCON Thursday, October 20, 2011 Page 8By Lois SwobodaSpecial to the Times A very pretty wildower blooming at the roadsides right now is white sabatia ( Sabatia brevafolia,) sometimes called shortleaf white gentian. White sabatia owers freely, and the blooms have an almost iridescent quality. The plants are less than a foot tall and compact. White sabatia is native to the Pine Barrens and thrives in full sun. It is salt and drought-tolerant. Sabatias are members of the gentian family. White sabatia is a selfseeding annual, meaning rootstock survives only a single season. This plant grows in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina and is rather common in our area, but it is considered an imperiled species because of habitat loss. Though not commonly cultivated, this attractive plant has real possibilities as a garden ower in our area. The seeds are borne in little ask-shaped pods that could easily be collected when ripe and started in containers or sown in a bright sandy site.Special to The TimesThat little hint of fall teasing us early each morning gives notice that one of area sportsmens most anticipated events is soon to occur. The fth annual  Pan handle Sportsmans Banquet will be Nov. 3. Port St. Joe Lions Club members are  busy working  to make this years event not only  bigger and better than ever, but a special moment to remember. Attendees will enjoy the historic surroundings of the Port St. Joe Centennial Building while socializing with numerous area sportsmen and enjoying appetizers of Apalachicola oysters, boiled shrimp and all the trimmings beginning at 5 p.m. ET. The beverage bar will also open at that time. At 6:30 p.m. the serious eating begins. Chef Charlie Nortons famous, noman-left-hungry rib-eye steaks will take up a good portion of the dinner plate, leaving just enough room for the salad, potato and rolls. Dont forget to save room for  Sisters almost equally famous banana pudding. The real winners at this years banquet, though, will be the beneciaries of the community service projects supported by the Lions Club. More than $15,000 was raised at 2010s banquet for community service programs in the panhandle. There have been a few changes made to this years event. First is the location, the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe. Because of conicts between hunting seasons and the Nov. 3 date, the Box R Ranch was unavailable. The good news is the Centennial Building will remove the threat of inclement weather and provide the backdrop of the historic building, erected in recognition of the signing place of Floridas rst Constitution. Second, live music. Not just any live music, but as long as were being somewhat nostalgic, many of us remember the band Southern Satisfaction from our high school dance era.  They have not only aged well, but they are better than ever and agreed to make this years banquet even more special with a one-night reunion tour.  Some of the bands past members will blend with the current group  and add  some spe cial music to the event.    At 7:30 p.m., its time to let a few notches out of your belt and get ready for the real excitement. More than $20,000 worth of contributions and prizes will be distributed to the guests through silent auctions,  live auctions and rafes.  A few of the items offered will  include shotguns, hunting ries, pistols, rods and reels and numerous other outdoor products. There will also be items available for women and children. This will mark the second year of the $8,000 cash drawing held during the event. The lucky winner could win up to $8,000 if his ticket is drawn last from the box, but each ticket holder will have a 1 in 25 chance of at least doubling their money.  Tickets for the event  are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. They can be purchased at Hannon Insurance and  Ramseys Printing and Ofce Products  in Port St. Joe and from  any Lions Club member. Additional  information or ticket purchases can be made by calling 227-1133, 227-7767  or 527-1338.By Travis DowneyFlorida Freedom Newspapers In Northwest Florida, the third week of October marks the opening of archery season for deer antlered or antlerless offering what is widely regarded as the most fertile hunting period of the season. With most deer still in their summer patterns, the early archery season allows hunters to pattern deer more easily than during the latter stages of the hunting season, when deer have had far more encounters with humans. For a bow hunter, there is nothing like the early archery season, which this year opens Saturday, Oct. 22, and runs through Nov. 23. Theres not a lot of human confrontation during the offseason, so your chances of getting closer (to the animal) is at the rst of the season, said Craig Wittmeire, president of the Choctaw Bowmen Archery Club. But to increase your chances for a successful hunt, there are a few things to consider namely, ensuring that you are properly outtted with a bow that ts you and selecting the correct draw weight and length. One way to measure your draw length is by standing with your arms spread out, palms facing forward. After measuring from the tip of one hand to the other, divide that number by 2.5. Generally speaking, a man weighing between 150 and 180 pounds can use a draw weight of 55 to 65 pounds. Most important, however, is ensuring that it is a proper t. You can kill anything with a 40pound bow that somebody can with a 70-pound bow, Wittmeire said. The idea is to shoot accurately and hit what youre shooting at. Thats where practice and lots of it comes in. To be a successful bow hunter, you have to put in the work, said Nick Whitney, a local bow hunter. Its the long shooting practices during the summer when you would rather be at the beach. Its getting into the woods and scouting the area for signs of deer and making sure you have all the proper equipment to be safe in the stand so you can enjoy future hunts. Whitney was rst introduced to the sport ve years ago while stationed at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi. Despite a rather uneventful rst hunt I sat for ve hours the most boring thing I have ever done Whitney became hooked one year later when he saw his rst deer. His shot missed its intended mark, but a bow hunter was born. I went from staring at an ant crawling across my hand, bored out of my mind, to extreme adrenaline overload in a matter of seconds, Whitney said. Everything I felt in that short six seconds is why I am so passionate about bow hunting. The bow and arrow pre-date recorded history. A shaft with fletching, or feathers, bound to it was dated to 16,000 B.C. An arrow fired from a compound bow favored by todays hunters can travel up to 300 feet per second, or 200 mph. Pros of bow hunting: Fewer hunters in the woods; deer are not yet spooked because bow season comes before gun season; better chance of seeing a buck; more skill is required; you are much closer to the deer than when you are hunting by rifle. Cons of bow hunting: Much shorter shooting range, meaning a nice buck at 200, 150, 100 or 75 yards is going to be out of range; the equipment is bulker and more movement is required to use it; you need more hunting area to draw back a bow; there isnt much room for error whether it be nervousness or aim; tracking is often more difficult as the deer tend to run further. Why hunt by bow? Its a challenge. Because you have to wait for the deer to get very close, you are more likely to be detected either by scent or movement, evening the odds compared to hunting by gun. The cost? You can expect to spend from $300 to $700 for a decent compound bow, though there is a corresponding rise in price as the quality rises. Where to get advice? C&G Sporting Goods in downtown Panama City carries regular, compound and crossbows in stock, repairs bows and custom-makes arrows, and has staff on hand to answer bow hunting questions. You can also find equipment and advice at Kings Discount Drugs in Chipley, which as its name implies is not only an outdoors store, but can also provide you with some BC Powder after you shoot an arrow four feet over the back of a monster buck.

FreshwaterThe mahi-mahi have moved off of the buoy line in Mexico Beach and might be gone for the winter. Good-sized kingsh have invaded St. Joe Bay and can be caught from the Sea wall behind Bluewater Outriggers. Large spinning reels or surf tackle will help you with the long runs the kings will make. Live baits are working great; however, saltwater ies and trolling gear are landing sh here as well. Inshore OffshoreInshore shing in St. Joe Bay has been a mixed bag. Strong numbers of trout are coming in, but most are too small to keep. Fishing the Fire Tower area and Pig Island seem to be producing good numbers with an occasional keeper. The Canal or I.C.W. is still holding a good amount of red sh and trout as well. Low water in the river systems has got the bass all schooled up. Great reports from anglers catching large amounts of bass from Apalachicola to the Dead Lakes this past week. Depot Creek has started to produce crappie in decent numbers this past week along with the usual suspects.

Organizer Mark Henderson said he has seen a bumper crop of runners already registered for the race, including runners from 26 states, the Czech Republic and Puerto Rico. The race will begin at 7:15 a.m. at Battery Park in Apalachicola, about 15 minutes later than last years start so that there will be more sunlight and allow things to get a little lighter, Henderson said. The course winds through Eastpoint and St. George Island before returning to Battery Park for the nish. The marathon course is certied by U.S.A. Track and Field, which means runners who post competitive times can use the results to qualify for the Boston Marathon or any other major that requires times to be set on a certied course. In addition to the 26.2-mile marathon, the race-day events also feature a half-marathon, 5k and 10k races and the newly introduced Ultra 50k, about 31 miles. You got to be an athlete to do that one, or a little insane, Henderson said. Each of the races feature wheelchair divisions and are designed to bring attention to the Apalachicola Bay area, one of the most beautiful and important estuaries in America; create an avenue for charity fundraising and to promote health and tness, Henderson said. Part of the proceeds from last years race went to area nonprots, including $500 to the Franklin County Humane Society and $500 to the Apalachicola Riverkeeper. Another $300 went to the Wounded Warrior project and two $100 gifts to churches doing missionary work overseas. The race weekend will begin with an expo from noon to 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at Battery Park Community Center. Henderson said the event is free and open to the public and will give runners a chance to meet and become familiar with the race and pick up their bibs and bib numbers. One of the items Henderson is most proud of is a specially designed medal that features a view of Apalachicola Bay and which last year was voted among the top ve medals in a national competition by Marathon and Beyond magazine. We beat out the New York and Boston marathons, Henderson said. The race organizer also touted the economic benets of the race, which he estimated would bring in about 1,500 people, three times the eld of runners. These are new found tourism dollars for the community, he said, estimating that when overnight room rentals, meals and miscellaneous shopping are factored in, as much as $250,000 would be brought into the county over the weekend. This does not include future dollars spent by any tourist who are introduced to the area and will come back for many years, he said. Runners this year hope to beat the times of last years inaugural race, won by a 49year-old postal worker from Mobile, Ala., Victor Birch, who nished one minute short of three hours. The top female nisher in 2010 was 37-year-old Jacqueline Sasaki, a dermatologist from Gulfport, Miss, who was shooting to qualify for the Boston Marathon, needing a 3:45 time. She ended up nishing with a 3:15, 15 minutes better than what she had hoped for. For more information, visit www.runningforthebay.com. The Lady Seahawks volleyball team swept a doubleheader against West Gadsden earlier this month but fell to Port St. Joe and Liberty County. The team, under the direction of coach Sally Wheeler, downed West Gadsden in the rst match in three straight, 25-6, 2523 and 25-18. In the nightcap, the girls won 25-19, 25-11 and 25-17.

By David Adlerstein SEAHAWK NATION PREPAREsS FOR HOMECOMING By David AdlersteinTimes City Editor Led by an explosive performance from sophomore Dwayne Griggs, the Seahawks football team traveled to Quincys Corry Fields complex Friday night and overwhelmed Munroe 46-35. Griggs exploded for 245 yards rushing on 12 carries, plus ve touchdowns and a two-point conversion, to pace a dominant offensive showing for Franklin County (3-4). Junior Skyler Hutchinson added 101 yards on ve carries and a touchdown for the Seahawks, while senior Brennan Walden had 70 yards on three carries and a TD. Junior fullback Cole Lee rushed for 73 yards on nine carries. We had a week of practice that transferred over to the eld and a great team effort, Franklin County coach Josh Wright said. Coming off a bad loss to Port St. Joe, this was a good game for the program. The Seahawks did all their scoring on the ground, with two touchdowns and two extra points by junior kicker Zach Howze in the rst quarter. The Seahawks and the Bobcats each posted touchdowns in the second quarter, giving Franklin County a 21-7 halftime lead. The Seahawks added two scores in the third quarter while ceding six points to the Bobcats to build a 34-13 lead. In the nal stanza, the Seahawks scored twice but managed no extra points, while Munroe tallied 22 points. On the defensive side of the ball, Griggs, Walden and Lee each had seven solo tackles, while Hutchinson and sophomore Leonard Green had ve solos. Walden recovered a fumble, and freshman Kelsey Jones, senior Zach Armistead and Green each had an interception. In the quarterback spot, Armistead went 2 for 7 for 20 yards, completing passes to Griggs and Lee and throwing one interception. The Seahawks travel to West Gadsden for a 1A District 4 battle on Friday and will face a Panthers squad coming off a 34-20 non-league loss to Lafayette.

Pierce said Assistant County Planner Mark Curenton, highly regarded for his expertise in many of the technical aspects of city and regional planning, had made clear he did not want to be considered for the job. Hes very good with what he does but he recognizes (his limits). He has a much different approach from what I do, said Pierce. Commissioner Pinki Jackel praised Curenton, who was not present at the meeting, as well as Pierce. We appreciate you, she told him. You work very hard and yours has got to be one of the most difcult jobs in the world. We appreciate you and thank you for the job you do. Replacing you will be difcult but you can always nd a way to chime back in if you need to. Commissioner Smokey Parrish said the board should consider reducing the positions responsibilities. The salary for that will be reduced also, he said. Pierce said he planned to provide the board with a single job description for a post that he hoped could be renamed. It presumes Im accounting to a county administrator, he said. My intention is to give you one job description, and I would call it county coordinator. In her motion to accept Pierces retirement, Jackel stipulated that Pierces replacement need not have a college degree. I do not want to see a college degree as a requirement only, she said. In lieu of experience, many years experience, must be considered as a package. We have the superintendent not required to have a college degree. We have a lot of local talent, we need to look at experience, management experience, as compensating factors, she said.

LocalA14 | The Times Thursday, October 20, 2011Apalachicola High School, sells lightly-used building supplies at cut-rate prices. Rob Peterson, Habitats builder, said donations can be made to sponsor any portion of a house from a roof, to a two-by-four, to a square foot of concrete. He said you can put your name on any donation, no matter how small. Pam Ashley said sympathy cards or holiday cards are available that include a donation to Habitat for Humanity as a gift or memorial. Prospective homeowners must be able to pay for the house and must invest 400 hours of sweat equity volunteering for Habitat. Sweat equity can be earned by helping with construction or earning a GED. Pam Ashley said Habitat likes to build houses at ve to six-month intervals to give the next family in line time to build sweat equity before work on their house begins. Consideration is also given to need. Those chosen to receive a Habitat house must provide a $500 down payment. Homeowners then pay off the no-interest loan over 20 years. She said payments can be as low as $500 to $600 per month with insurance and taxes included. Ashley said Habitat puts people into houses that will still be standing after 50 years. When building a house, Franklin County Habitat has build days once a week on Saturday, but other arrangements can be made for those wishing to volunteer. Volunteers with limited construction skills who are anxious to learn and dedicate more than just one day of time, can work as part of our team of regular volunteers. You may bring your own tools although it isnt necessary; please label them if you do. Construction volunteers must be at least 16 years old and are required to sign a waiver and release of liability form. According to Habitat Internationals website, the organization was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat and its homeowner families have built or rehabilitated more than 400,000 houses. A nonprot, nondenominational Christian housing ministry, Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build together in partnership. The current Franklin County board of directors is Pam Ashley, chair: Ella Bond, vice chair and family selection committee; Lori Switzer secretary; Cliff Butler, treasurer; John Sink, church relations and nance; Kristy Branch Banks, legal; Rob Peterson, builder and Skip Frink. To volunteer, make a donation or request a house, go to www.habitatfranklin. org/Contact.aspx, or visit the ReStore at the old Apalachicola High School on 14th Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. two families who operated the still, and who were reputedly well-to-do. Others say the cemetery was multiracial. Brown, who grew up in Apalachicola, remembers coming to Carrabelle to ride horseback during the 1960s. The cemetery was one of her favorite haunts, no pun intended. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, something bad began to happen at the graveyard. Headstones began to topple and even disappear. Carrabelle Mayor Curley Messer, who was a police ofcer around this time, remembers being called to stop a boy from digging up one of the graves. At that time, the cemetery contained ornate monuments, up to 5 feet tall, he said. A lot of bones began turning up in peoples yards and along the highway, said Brown. Old-timers contend the person who owned the property at this time wanted the graves removed so he could develop the land. It is rumored he sold the topsoil, including the gravestones and contents of the graves, for use as ller under Fourth Street. Some say that even before this, the graves were violated by grave robbers seeking jewelry. Messer recalled how his late wife Audrey took pictures of the vandalism and wrote numerous letters to public ofcials to stop it, to no avail. He said the desecration was nally ended by Mayor Snow Cook after a boy was caught displaying a skull on a broomstick near Carrabelles eastern city limits. The Third Street Cemetery was rediscovered during the 2009 Carrabelle Historical Preservation Survey, when historian Beth LaCivita was able to locate just two tombstones. A foot stone bears the surname Pooser. A headstone has the inscription: James Butler, Born Jan 14, 1891, Died Oct. 27, 1918. The Lord is my Shepard. Both Pooser and Butler are names found in Isle of Rest, Carrabelles traditionally AfricanAmerican burial site, supporting the idea the Third Street Cemetery contained the remains of the owners of Popes Still, reputedly very prosperous. Carrabelle has a few other macabre sites. There is a hanging tree, and once upon a time, the city was home to one of the largest casket companies in the southern U.S. According to Echoes of Carrabelle, Ed and Dick Bussan, of Indiana, established the Carrabelle Casket Company in 1953. The plant manufactured steel and copper cofns. These were assembled, painted and lined with foam rubber and silk at the Carrabelle factory. The plant was rst established in a room next to the movie theatre, but later moved to the colored school house, before nally occupying a building constructed to house it. City Clerk Keisha Smith said she remembers telling stories about the Casket Company building and playing in it as a child. Employees of the Casket Company included Cecil Millender, who married Ed Bussans daughter, Kay, shortly after they graduated from high school in 1956. Also listed as employees in Echoes of Carrabelle, were Ronnie Swords, Ed Bratton, Dick Thalls, Mickey Gay, Pansy Walden, Kate Bussen and Ruth and Bobby Millender. The Carrabelle Casket Company was the rst to manufacture metal cofns in the southern U.S. and one of the most important employers in Carrabelle. dbutler@coastalcoverage.com Locally owned and operated to meet all your insurance needs Gun ShowOctober 29th & 30th Panama City Panama City Fairgrounds Fairgrounds2038646Sat 9 -5 Sun 10-4C o n c e a l e d W e a p o n s C l a s s S a t / S u n 1 1 o r 2 Floridagunshows.com FREE PARKING LOIS SWOBODA | The Times The Butler headstone RESIDENT from page A1 ETERNITY from page A1LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Habitat for Humanitys board of directors HABITAT from page A1 became blind in one eye, due to diabetes. Harris came to live with him as his adopted granddaughter in 1957 at the age of 12. Smith was 84. Prior to moving into his home, Harris and her mother, Emma Floyd, rented one of three houses owned by Smith. Harris became pregnant while still in school. Smith adopted the child, Daisy Mae Jones, and raised her as well. Harris remained with him until her marriage at age 19. After her marriage, her daughter lived with Smith until shortly before his death. Smith left his properties to Harris and Jones, but because he had no insurance, Harris said she traded the properties to the funeral home to cover the cost of the funeral. Smith is in one of the many unmarked graves at Isle of Rest. There was no charge for the plot itself, since burials there are informal and the land is publicly owned. Harris did receive a small legacy from her grandfather. She said Smith had a habit of burying money in jars around his home. Mrs. Sallie Mae Walker, who was the Mother of the church where Smith was deacon, knew the whereabouts of his cache and helped Harris to retrieve a large coffee jar containing money. Harris said two of Smiths close friends were Walter Edwards and Willie Lee Benjamin. Smith died in a nursing home in Blountstown July, 1978. Tyler, greatgranddaughter of Aunt Laura Wiggins, also called to conrm that Wiggins is buried in Isle of Rest in an unmarked grave next to her daughter, Savannah Brown. Wiggins lived to be 111 years old so she, too, was older than Walker. Wiggins was born in 1844 and shared many stories of life as a slave with Tyler who has promised to share them with the Times, but thats another story.
