Travis Tritt to headline festival Saturday By David Adlerstein Times City Editor With forebears in Franklin County spanning four generations, dependent for their livelihoods on Apalachicola Bay, a young seafood dealer and the great-granddaughter of immigrants reign over this weekend during the 48th annual Florida Seafood Festival. Fresh from her radio and television appearances touting this years event, which culminates in a Saturday night concert by country music giant Travis Tritt, Miss Florida Seafood Christina Pateritsas and King Retsyo Ottice Amison will open festivities Friday afternoon as they arrive to be blessed together along with the eet. Accompanied by the 17-year-old Franklin County High School senior, Amison will stride in a billowing cape and freshly jeweled oyster boots to Battery Parks newest addition, a 20 foot by 20 foot illuminated pavilion on the site of the original festival stage. The donated structure was built by state inmates and funded by the festivals allvolunteer board of directors. Its something we wanted to give back to the community, and to thank the community for its continued support, said John Solomon, president of the festival board. If anyone is deemed worthy to hold title to the throne, protector of the sea, its bounty and its people, it is Amison; former head of the countys seafood task force and present leader of his familys 35-year-old seafood processing operation. His military skills are without reproach. He is a 1990 Apalachicola High School graduate who served the next four and a half years in the Army with the 82nd Airborne Scouts. Father of two sons, Christian, 11, and Colin, 8, Amison works for a company begun as an oyster house by his grandfather, Eddie Amison, in 1976, on land now known as the Lombardi property, at Two Mile. Eddie Amisons son, Jim, continued in the business, and married Ava Bodiford, daughter of L.R. Bodiford, who owned the Bodiford Shrimp Company on Water Street near the present day Wheelhouse Restaurant. L.R. Bodifords father owned a sh market in Panama City. Its an honor. Itll be fun, Amison said. I got a long line of kings I got to live up to. Pateritsas, too, holds royal lineage. She is third in the Nichols family to rule as sovereign over the tides. Her older sister, Isabel, was Miss Florida Seafood two years ago, and her aunt, Rosalie Nichols, won the title in 1974. Roots in the local seafood industry stretch as long for Pateritsas as her brunette hair and as wide as her smile. In 1903, her great-grandparents, John and Miss Florida Seafood Christina Pateritsas, and King Retsyo Ottice Amison.DAVI D AD LERSTEIN | The Times xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx Thursday, November 3, 2011 50 WWW.APALACHTIMES.COM VOL. 126 ISSUE 27P hone: 850-653-8868 W eb: apalachtimes.com E -mail: dadlerstein@star.com Fax: 850-653-8036 C irculation: 800-345-8688 Opinion ............

Nelson and Alisha Woods, and their four children, Lee Curry, 14; Tyler Curry, 12; Chelsea Woods, 10; and Montana Woods, 6; es caped between 12:30 a.m. and 1 a.m. from the burning home at 1109 N.E. Fifth Street in Carra belle. Alishas best friend Brandy Osburn, and her husband Travis, who has been staying with the Woods family to weather some nancial difculties, also lost their possessions in the re, although the couple was in Tallahassee at the time. Brandy Osburn said she re ceived a telephone call sometime before 1 a.m. from Alisha Woods, telling her of the blaze. The cou ple had been visiting Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, to be with their pastor from the Carrabelle Christian Center, his wife and his child, who had been in a fall. We came back to nothing, said Osburn. I came back to see ing my best friend devastated, to not having a place to live, to two dogs being dead. I came back to nothing. We lost our clothes, our bed room suite and our animals, but Alisha and their family have lost everything, she said. They have lost way more than we have. They even lost the keys to their car, so they have no way to crank their car because the keys were inside the house. We just ask for prayers and I ask for anybody that can to help the children, said Osburn. They need anything and everything, they have nothing. Alisha Woods said a loud noise jarred the family awake some time after midnight. We woke up to a big sucking noise and then it went boom and the back door ew off. The thing I thank God for, the pressure from the re blew off the back door, or we probably wouldnt be here. When we woke up, the whole house was already smoked-up in side, she said. Alisha ran to her Nanas house behind them, the home of Mamie and Jesse Millender. Nelson ran back into the house to recover the cell phone, wallet and car keys, but was unsuccessful. Jesse Millender grabbed a water hose, and Carrabelle po lice ofcer Stephan Simmons jumped from his patrol car, to do what they could. They were try ing to save it, said Alisha Woods. There was no hope. Its a com plete loss.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, November 3, 2011 Oyster Festival Many Thanks, Franklin County 2011 117 Hwy 98, Apalachicola, FL (850) 653.8825 218 Hwy 71, Wewahitchka, FL (850) 639.2252 302 Cecil G Costin Sr Blvd, Port St. Joe, FL (850) 227.7099 By Lois Swoboda Times Staff Writer Several hundred folks gathered around the Crooked River Lighthouse Saturday to kick off Halloween and upcoming winter revels with the third annual Lanternfest celebration. Joan Matey, curator of the lighthouse museum, organized the affair with her usual air and attention to detail. Everything was perfect and a nip of fall in the air added to the fun. Cupcakes tinted with appropriate fall colors accompanied the more substantial fare from the Pit Stop restaurant. Many guests came in Halloween couture and a blue fairy uttered around the grounds exchanging greetings with pirates, pumpkins and an ET look-alike. There was plenty of entertainment for all ages. Lighthouse Park was ablaze with radiance and color during a sparkling evening that featured music by strolling minstrels Aisha Ivey and Frank Lindamood. Along with lighthouse climbs, there were lantern crafting and beading stations on the porch for youngsters. Demonstrations of scrimshaw and blacksmithing techniques were also on site. Against the backdrop of the pirate ship Carrabella, Andy Edell regaled his audience with tales of lighthouse keepers of long ago. Director Ben Gunter brought his Theatre with a Mission troupe to Carrabelle to perform Discovery of the New World, written by Lope de Vega between 1598 and 1603. This is the rst stage play known to have featured New World settings. Christopher Columbus and his lesser-known brother Bart, based on the explorers real-life brother Bartholomew, are among the characters. The Tallahassee Community College dancers, directed by Aurora Hansen, performed an astonishing dance featuring colored lights as the night drew in. Culmination of the enchanted evening was a chorus of Happy Birthday to the Light and a procession around the grounds carrying lanterns that glowed gaily among the lamps strung between the trees. Proceeds from the event go to support the Crooked River Light. To view a gallery of the Lanternfest celebration, go to www.apalachtimes.com.

This story comes to us from Harry Gray, who grew up in Carrabelle. Gray said he remembers the Third Street Cemetery but recalls graves outlined with shells and wooden markers instead of stone markers. He shared this story about it. Three very young teenaged girls, Lukie Barrow, Addie Bird and Alma Page, were walking from Carrabelle to Harbeson City one Sunday. In the past, funerals were usually held on Sunday so working people could attend. They walked past the Third Street Cemetery on the way, and there was a funeral in progress. The pallbearers began lifting the cofn, a plain wooden box, on ropes to lower it into the grave, when one of the ropes slipped or broke and the cofn tumbled sideways. The lid came off and the occupant spilled out. As the girls watched in horror, the mourners stared at one another, but nobody wanted to touch the corpse. One by one, the bereaved began to back away and then to run, leaving the deceased to fend for himself as the girls broke into laughter. Gray also had an interesting memory about Evergreen Cemetery. He said that at one time, the road into the cemetery was a dead end. Drivers would pull as far in as they could to park, and those who arrived later parked behind them. This meant that the rst to arrive had to wait for latecomers to exit before they could leave. At a large funeral, the whole process could take hours. Gray said his family donated the land to allow the trafc loop to be completed and end the gridlock at the grave. Lois Swoboda Help save lives with re safety tips Special to The Times Every 82 seconds, a home re breaks out, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. Fires can cause irreparable damage to homes and businesses, displacing families and employees. Last year, the American Red Cross responded to 63,000 home res across the country and provided comfort and basic necessities to those affected. From Oct. 9-15, the Red Cross helped families and businesses learn how to protect themselves and others from res in observance of National Fire Prevention Week. Taking simple steps like installing smoke detectors and developing and practicing a re escape plan can make a critical difference in saving lives, homes and workplaces, said Dan Samborn, CEO, who recommends that every family and business develop and practice a re safety plan. Everyone at home, school and work should know what to do when they hear the sound of a smoke alarm. Additional recommendations include: Install smoke alarms on every level of the house and inside bedrooms. Replace batteries in smoke alarms at least once a year. Test each alarm monthly by pushing the test button. Ensure that household members know two ways to escape from every room and designate a place to meet outside of your house in case of a re. Practice your plan at least twice a year. Follow your escape plan in case of re. Get out, stay out and call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number. Visit www.redcross.org/homeres for additional re safety tips. Business, too, should be prepared. Fire is the most common of all business disasters. Companies, schools and other organizations can learn how to prepare for res and other emergencies by becoming a member of the Red Cross Ready Rating Program at www. readyrating.org. Complete a free, online assessment of your current readiness level and receive customized feedback with tips to improve preparedness. In addition to helping families and businesses prepare their homes and facilities for potential res, the Red Cross is there to help those in need when res break out. The Capital Area Chapter responded to 190 home res last year. In order to continue responding to disasters like res at homes and businesses here in Tallahassee, the Red Cross depends on the generous support of individuals and businesses in the community, Samborn said. Those who want to help people affected can make a donation to support the American Red Cross. Their gift will enable the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other disaster assistance in time of need. Donation information can be found at www.tallyredcross.org, by calling the chapter at 878-6080 or by mail to the Capital Area Chapter Red Cross, 1115 Easterwood Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32311. The death this August of Georgia high school football star DJ Searcy refocused attention on Floridas need for more guidelines to prevent heat-related deaths. The young athlete, who died at a football camp in North Florida, was the second in Florida and one of 13 fatalities nationwide this past year. To change that, Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, on Oct. 4 announced the ling of legislation designed to prevent deaths caused by heat illness and institute preventative lifesaving measures to protect student athletes. Adoption of the new law would ensure the safety of high school interscholastic athletics, cheerleaders and marching bands and make Florida the rst state in the South to pass such legislation. The well-being of our children is not only critical inside our classrooms, but on our playing elds as well, Montford said. In the extreme heat we have here in the South, this legislation will assist school districts in meeting the challenge of providing an even safer environment for our young people. Heat exhaustion claims the life of high school football players at an alarming rate, and the soaring temperatures across the nation this summer created no exception to this pattern. Searcy, a defensive lineman, was a star on his Fitzgerald, Ga., high school football team and was recruited by several Division I college football programs. He was only with his football team for three days at the North Florida camp before passing out in the bathroom after a day of practice in extreme heat the night of Aug. 1. The next morning, he lost consciousness after practice and died. On what would have been Searcys 17th birthday, Dr. Douglas J. Casa, Korey Stringer Institutes chief operating ofcer, explained that heat-related deaths are 100 percent preventable in two ways: having emergency plans in place to bring down the core body temperature, and taking precautions to prevent body temperatures from getting extremely high. The National Athletic Trainers Association issued an inter-association consensus statement in 2009 with recommendations on how to acclimate athletes to hot-weather activity gradually with specics as to the limitation of duration and equipment worn during high school athletic practices. Studies also have shown that for about $150, coaches and athletic trainers can purchase a tub to ll with ice, which drastically increases a persons chance of survival when experiencing heat illness. Nationwide, New Jersey is the only state to have adopted these lifesaving guidelines. Concerned parents are urging state legislators from Florida and Georgia to adopt new laws with these or similar guidelines to ensure the safety of high school interscholastic athletes, cheerleaders and marching bands. Additional information for parents and educators can be found at www. change.org. William J. Montford is the state senator for Floridas District 6, which includes Franklin County. The Statewide Public Librarians Conference, put on by the State Library and Archives, happened again a couple weeks ago. Your librarian always comes back with a lot of ideas for things to improve services to the whole community of Apalachicola. Future columns will be about some of those ideas, but I thought this week I would show my readers a glimpse of whats up right now. The Apalachicola library is probably one of the most basic libraries in the state of Florida. It does not offer a lot of services common in other larger public libraries. An example is that it does not offer check-outs of eBooks. Electronic format books have become so common in libraries across the country that some authors do not even publish their books in hardcover, which is what most libraries would want to buy, but offer paperback and eBooks only. Behind-the-scenes library research is being done on how to make eBooks accessible for library patrons. The Apalachicola library is one of very few in Florida that still uses a paper check-out card system. I know many patrons like it this way, but the change to an electronic system will be happening in 2012 because of state privacy laws and because it is time to make the system easier to run for the library itself. We have a contract with a company called Biblionix to automate the collection. There are so few libraries without a computer-based collection that nding a company that supplies support for a retrospective conversion, as a paper to data conversion is called, was a trick. If you come to the library just to check out paper books or to use the Internet services from our six public computers, you might not be aware of all the things that are going in behind the scenes. Volunteers are scanning the bar codes on books; new books are being processed directly into the automation database. In addition, numerous donated books are constantly being evaluated for retention. Thirty boxes came in a few weeks ago Thursday, just as we were getting ready for Authors in Apalach. Those books not kept by the library will be sold at our Seafood Festival booth, coming up this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4-5. If you would like to see what volunteering feels like, sign up to help sell books. Two hours is the minimum, and that time will go fast. Caty Greene is the librarian for the Apalachicola Municipal Library. To reach her, call 6538436. Q. With the telephone system you have in place, its hard to get a live person each time I call. Can you make improvements? A. I dont like to get a machine when I make a call either; however, telephones with answering systems are a necessity in my ofce, especially considering the economy. There are deputy clerks who must be available in sessions of court as well as all county commission meetings. The deputy clerks must be prepared to deliver court paperwork to the judges ofce on a routine basis. The deputy clerks are required to be away from their desks to conduct foreclosure and tax deed sales. The deputy clerks must complete banking business daily. My ofce consists of ve separate rooms in the courthouse, which isnt the ideal situation either, but it works. You should always get a live person simply by dialing zero (0) at any time you hear our message. Your calls are important to me, and I apologize for your inconvenience. The clerks ofce generally serves a vast number of walk-in citizens on a daily basis. We issue marriage licenses and passports. We collect revenues from trafc tickets and court nes. We process les for divorces, foreclosures, small claims, evictions and probate proceedings. We record all deeds and mortgages. Its just not possible for these clerks to remain seated at their desks throughout the average work day. I made changes to our telephone message to enable the public to dial a zero (0) and get a deputy clerk on the phone who should be able to answer your questions, take messages or direct you. If you are directed to an answering machine, please leave a brief message with your name and telephone number. My staff has been instructed to return calls promptly. Communication via email is also available in the clerks ofce. The clerks email address is mmjohnson@franklinclerk.com, and the countys email address is info19@franklinclerk.com. If you have questions or comments about this column, please forward them to Marcia Johnson, Clerk of the Court, 33 Market St., Suite 203, Apalachicola, FL 32320.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, November 3, 2011 NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING The Board of Commissioners of the Northwest Florida Regional Housing Authority will hold a Special Meeting on November 15, 2011, at the Holiday Inn & Suites, 2725 Graves Road, Tallahassee, Florida. Meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. E.S.T. The meeting will be open to the public. Fireghters from Carrabelle, Eastpoint and nearby departments extinguished the blaze. Dead were the familys two dogs, a poodle and a pug-Pekinese mix. We lost two family pets that meant the world to us, said Alisha. Its hard. My autistic son is taking it really hard, worse than any of them. He doesnt understand. They dont like change. He lost everything that he could have that is his. The American Red Cross has put up the two families in the Franklin Inn until Friday, when Mamie Millender hopes to have a vacant trailer she owns cleaned and readied for them to move into, Alisha Woods said. She said the state re marshals ofce told her a dryer may have been the cause since the laundry room appeared to be the hottest spot of the blaze. Alisha Woods said the family had just bought a new high-efciency front-loading dryer. It was brand new, she said. I just made the second payment on that thing. Franklin County Middle School Dean Eric Bidwell has been busy trying to get clothes for the family. Alisha Woods said the family is in need of boys pants 29 waist, 30 length; boys size 18 and girls sizes 8 and 10. Nelson wears a mans 40 waist, 32 length, and Alisha a 3X wom ans. Gathana Parmenas, a case worker with the Red Cross, said the organization has provided them assistance for imme diate emergency needs, but they will re quire further help in replacing household goods, clothing and necessities. To offer help, call Franklins Promise Coalition at 653-3930. FIRE from page A1 Garaphylia Nichols, moved to Apalachicola from Trekiri, Greece, and worked, as so many immigrants did, in a Gulf of Mexico which provided sh, oysters, sponges, scallops and shrimp for the taking. They would later open the Owl Caf to serve the shing community around the clock. Not only is the festival the oldest maritime event in Florida, it celebrates the culture and lifestyle granted to us by the seafood from our waters, said Pateritsas, daughter of Callie Nichols, of Apalachicola, and Mario Pateritsas, of Greece. The festival is enjoyed by thousands of visitors and serves as a homecoming for Apalachicolas sons and daughters, who come home to celebrate with local friends and families who still live and work here. King Retsyo and I are really looking forward to hosting all of our guests. We know that a good time will be had by all! Fewer commercial booths, from 32 down to 15, and growth in arts and crafts are among the changes at this years event. This year the festival is proud to announce we have over 80 arts and crafts booths with 25 local crafters participating, Solomon said. The directors also increased the not-for-prot area, allowing more spaces for non-prot groups to been seen and hand out information on their organizations. Also new will be the Franklin County Photo Contest, featuring images from within the county, which will be judged by the festivals visitors. Judging will be held Friday and Saturday at the tent next to the T-shirt tent, with the winner announced at 4 p.m. Saturday at the information booth. We encourage all visitors to stop by and vote on their favorite picture, Solomon said. Making its debut, will be an antique and classic car show at the east of the main gate area, as well as maritime heritage exhibits that demonstrate how local seafood workers harvest the areas seafood. Following Saturday mornings 8 a.m. Redsh Run from the steps of the Gibson Inn and the parade at 10 a.m. down U.S. Highway 98, the afternoon will feature the delicious oyster shucking and eating events at 1 p.m. near the main stage. Last years shucking champ, Mike Martin, was sponsored by the festival at last weekends St. Marys Oyster Festival in Maryland, where he named winner of the two-day National Oyster Shucking Championship Contest and now has a chance to compete in the World Oyster Shucking Championships in Galway, Ireland. The festival would like to encourage anyone from the community to come compete in the shucking contest and show off our local talent and win a spot in the National Oyster Shucking Championships, Solomon said. To delight visitors, the blue crab races, sponsored by Fishermans Choice, are even better than last year. The festival directors saw the overwhelming need to expand the crab races, so we built an additional two new sections to the track and improved on the design, Solomon said. Now 20 kids can participate in the races at the same time, up from only 12 per race the last few years. The races are still free to enter for children 12 and under. Every child that participates will win a prize. An enormous crowd is expected for Tritts 8 p.m. Saturday night appearance as he brings the energy and excitement that has made him one of the leading country singers of the early 90s. Known for a touch of bluesy Southern rock, Tritt honed an outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. Throughout the early 90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top Ten singles, including hits such as Help Me Hold On, Im Gonna Be Somebody, T-r-o-u-b-l-e, Can I Trust You With My Heart and, in 2001, Its a Great Day to Be Alive. Solomon, now in his eighth year on the festival board, said he was most appreciative of all the directors hard work Tress Reynolds, Jennifer Brown, Andrea Register, Ted Mosteller, Carl Whaley, Betty Webb, Michael Shuler, Danny Gay, Kevin Ward, Pam Brownell, Robert Shelley and Danielle Layne. It takes months of planning and many dedicated people to give up time away from their families and friends, he said. I want to thank the families of our directors for allowing them the time and understanding the importance of their volunteer time. Thank you for your support. Without you, they could not do such a wonderful job. I can honestly say that the people that I have been blessed to work with over these years give everything they have for the community and the festival. This year is no exception.

She said this years theme is It takes the community to prevent domestic vio lence. Refuge House Executive Director Meg Baldwin said she was pleased her organi zation now has a represen tative in the county.

The luncheon took place at Papa Joes. Keynote speaker was Dawn Radford, who read the poem Mamas Place and spoke on her childhood experience with domestic violence. She said the support of her church family did much to sustain her through those times. Whenever there was a supper at the Methodist church, the ladies would sit me right in the front and put their hands on my shoul ders and made sure my plate was full, she said. It made a huge difference to know somebody cared. Bareld and Radford both stressed the need for early education to shape the behavior of young people. We must start early to es tablish boundaries in these kids minds, Radford said. Among those in atten dance at the meal were Sheriff Skip Shiver and Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson as well as repre sentatives from Weems Memorial Hospital and the Apalachicola Police Depart ment. Radford reminded the group that if you suspect someone is being abused, you have a legal as well as an ethical obligation to seek help for them.

Coarsey Jr. Obituaries Some time ago, my daughter and I were discussing the responsibility parents have to teach their children about serving God. We discussed how teaching Godly principles and establishing a habit of church attendance was vitally important at a young age. She was quiet for a moment before she said she had something to tell me. She cautiously searched for her words then said, Well There is this thing that you do that really bothers me As she shared with me how this thing was hindering her, I could feel a lump form in my throat. She appreciated the way we raised her yet there was a piece of fruit missing from my tree that made her skeptical of the overcoming power we claim to possess. My face began to feel warm as I envisioned myself standing before the throne of God. I could imagine Him saying, You raised your children in church and taught them My principles but theres that thing Whatever your doctrinal views may be, the issue of those we cause to stagger in their faith always resonates. When our thing is not corrected, we place a block in front of our weaker brother or sister that causes them to stumble. Luke 17:1,2 says: And He said to his disciples, Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. Gods grace is sufcient but only a fool treads on it as if the price that was paid for it was in vain. It would be like purchasing a shirt that cost you your entire savings as a gift for a stranger, only to nd him using it for an oil rag. In the end, my daughter is responsible for her own salvation and even though I was vaguely aware of that one little thing that she spoke of, I am responsible for the way I have mentored her. It would have been easier to nd excuses but I chose to acknowledge my weakness and work on changing. As P.K.s (preachers kids), our children saw more carnality than most church kids are ever aware of. Although we should always control our tongues and actions, church folks sometimes fall short, but in the end of it all, we forgive and love each other, much like any other family. Mature Christians understand that we strive daily to crucify our esh and of all of our body parts, the tongue is the most difcult to tame. Young people view carnality as duplicity, and sometimes good is just not good enough if they see no difference in the church and the world. Since the majority of todays youth do not readily take adults at their word, they are skeptical of anything that is not backed by evidence. They are looking for something authentic, not a stained-glassed masquerade. Parents used to tell their children to do as I say, not as I do. That method obviously is ineffective because most children adopt whatever the parent was trying to deter. If we drink, smoke, dip, cuss, do drugs, etc. statistically our child might also. Our kids are not fooled if we act as if these habits are not a problem in our life. Of course, there are justied sins like speeding, cheating on your taxes, gossiping, pride, lying (even telling white ones if there is such a thing), backbiting, greed, selshness, and withholding Gods portion of money and time. These sins are less repulsive to the body but equally destructive to the soul. Consequently, all of these examples tear down our witness to our children and to the world. A few weeks ago, one of our associate pastors made a good analogy in his message. He said that if a man were to walk in the church with a suit on and a Bible under his arm, we would shake his hand and refer to him as brother, not even knowing the condition of the mans heart. The suit does not make the man, nor does the outward appearance denote the spiritual heart. To most people, my daughters grievance would have been trivial, but to me, I felt as if I stood between my daughter and eternity. My desire is to show her, through example, the power that we possess to be overcomers in this life. Pursuit of perfection is futile but living each day as if it is the last chance I will ever have to reach a lost soul is worth striving for excellence. Especially if it is my own childs soul.

By Lois Swoboda Times Staff Writer The white ginger lily (Hedychium coronarium), a hardy member of the ginger family, is originally from the Himalayas region of Nepal and India. Gingers were popular with the Victorians, but because most gingers are cold-sensitive, the British never tried growing the plant outside. When conservatories fell out of popularity, so too did gingers. Kew Gardens botanist Tony Schilling traveled to Nepal in 1965 and rediscovered white ginger, which became immensely popular when gardeners realized it was winter-hardy. White ginger is the national ower of Cuba, where it is known as Mariposa Blanca, literally White Buttery, because of its resemblance to a ying white buttery. The incredibly fragrant owers, reminiscent of gardenia, were used by women to adorn themselves in Spanish colonial times. There is a tradition that Cuban women used the large white blossoms to carry secret messages during the revolution. White ginger roots have been used in incense, a tranquilizer and as a avoring in chewing tobacco. In Hawaii, the owers are woven into leis; in Thailand they are steamed and eaten. In the Victorian language of owers, white ginger was a symbol of health and good fortune. In most of South America, white ginger is very common and considered an invasive weed. The same is true in Hawaii. In Florida, it has not yet proved a troublesome invasive and is a popular garden plant. Because it requires a deep root system, white ginger does not do well in containers. This attractive plant stands 3 to 7 feet tall. From midsummer through autumn, the stalks are topped with 6to 12-inch-long clusters of wonderfully fragrant white owers that eventually give way to showy seed pods full of bright red seeds. It grows in full sun but prefers some shade and needs rich moist soil to thrive. White ginger is easily propagated from rootstock, and there are cultivars commercially available in a variety of colors. November means the 2011-12 huntin seasons in full swing. In this months column, I cover most everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail and gray squirrel, snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove seasons. The rst thing you need to do is pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs), youll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but dont forget to study the brochure for the specic area you plan to hunt because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at the tax collectors ofce near each WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/ Hunting. You can buy your license and permits by calling 888HUNT-FLORIDA or online at www..wildlifelicense. com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from Tax Collector Jimmy Harris ofce and most retail outlets that sell hunting and shing supplies. The general gun season runs Nov. 5 to Jan. 22 in Zone C; Dec. 3 to Feb. 19 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 19 to Jan. 1. In Zone D, which extends from Wakulla and Gadsden counties west to Alabama, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 24) and lasts four days through Nov. 27. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 10 and runs through Feb. 19. Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler 5 inches or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer. In some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMA brochure before hunting. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the WMA brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 19-25 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C, and Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D, which includes Franklin County. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day as you can during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 19 to Jan. 1. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 3 to Jan. 29 and Nov. 5 to Jan. 1, respectively. And in Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 24-27 and Dec. 10 to Jan. 15, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game, and you must have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day, and a total of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall turkey seasons combined. Quail and gray squirrel season runs statewide Nov. 12 to March 4. Theres a daily bag limit of 12 for each, but shooting fox squirrels is against the law. Shooting hours for deer, turkeys, quail and gray squirrels is a halfhour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. All legal ries, shotguns, muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer, fall turkey and quail and gray squirrel seasons. Florida snipe hunting ranks second in the nation for the number of birds harvested each year. That season runs Nov. 1 to Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 12-27. Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit is 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds. The FWC even provides an online Dove Hunters Hotline that gives upto-date information on Floridas public dove elds. The address is MyFWC. com/Dove, and its updated every Thursday throughout the dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and eld conditions. Whether small-game hunting with friends and family or hunting solo, going after that monster buck, boar hog or big tom, November brings loads of great hunting opportunities. Heres wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and a successful hunting season. Tony Young, an avid sportsman and native Floridian, is media relations coordinator for the FWCs Division of Hunting and Game Management and lives in Tallahassee with his family. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission In less than two weeks, anyone who visits the lower Apalachicola River will swear a war has broken out. Rest assured, its no war, but the annual opening of squirrel season. Small-game season, which is the open season for gray squirrel and quail, runs from Nov. 12 to March 4 throughout the state. Hunters are allowed to kill 12 squirrels daily. The lower Apalachicola River isnt the only area where squirrel hunters will be out in numbers. In the Florida Panhandle, therell be lots of squirrel hunters hunting the hardwoods along practically every river and creek where they have access. On the Apalachicola River below Wewahitchka, most of the boat ramps will be crowded with trucks and boat trailers while their owners hunt out of their boats. Where theres private property, some hunters use simple cabins as their base for sleeping and eating. Other hunters use tents and sleep primitive style, on the ground. One hunter who made the trip every year for almost 30 years is Tony Bigot of Fort Walton Beach. The 64-year-old hasnt hunted the past couple of years but he said it was a trip that he and eight or nine friends made together every year. It was really a ritual for us. We would go down on Friday afternoon or night (the day before the opening), sleep in a friends cabin and then hunt Saturday morning and go back in the afternoon, he said. Bigot said they hunted near Brothers River and generally found lots of squirrels. Sometimes youd kill your bag limit in a couple hours. But usually, wed get ve or six in the morning and about that many in the afternoon. Bigot said he always prided himself on his sense of direction and being able to nd his way back to the camp, but one day every oak, gum and cypress looked the same and he knew he was lost. After wandering in circles for several hours, he found a guy cutting rewood and paid him $5 to take him back to the boat landing. My friends were there looking for me. I took a lot of kidding, he said. Bigot said he enjoyed his annual opening-weekend trip so much that he took both his son and daughter to experience the Southern tradition. We enjoyed the hunt but all the other stuff eating camp food, sitting around a re at night and smelling like smoke, and everyone telling stories about their hunt those are things Ill always remember, he said.

By David Adlerstein Times City Editor Blountstown backed up their defense with of fensive muscle Friday night, defeating Franklin County 47-8 to put them selves in the catbird seat in the race for the District 4-1A title. The Tiger trio of sopho more Javakiel Brigham, senior Marquel Thomas and senior Jawon Mosley led a ground attack that tallied 233 yards on 34 car ries, as the defense shut out the Seahawks for the rst three quarters. We wanted to come down here and be able to run the football, said Ti gers coach Greg Jordan. Defensively weve been playing well. We needed to have some positive things happen. Happen they did, be ginning with a 14-yard toss from sophomore quarter back Hunter Jordan to Mosley with 5:44 left in the rst quarter. Jordan n ished a perfect 5-for-ve from the air, for 108 yards. On the opening drive, on successive fourth downs, Franklin County coach Josh Wright went for the rst downs and got them. But for most of the game, the team had a hard time mustering a sustained offense. The Blountstown of fense exploded in the sec ond quarter with four more scores, a 7-yard run by Thomas, a 4-yard burst by Mosley, who also caught a 14-yard scoring toss from Jordan, and a 31-yard scamper by Brigham with 27 seconds left before half time, giving the Tigers a commanding 33-0 lead go ing into the locker room. Blountstown got the running clock started less than 30 seconds into the second half, when Mosley ran the opening kickoff back to the Seahawks 15yard line, and then ran it in a play later. He nished with 46 yards, Brigham 66 yards and Thomas 53 yards. The Seahawks got on the board with 9:38 left in the game, when junior quarterback TreSean Carr threw an 11-yard score to junior Ladarious Rhodes. Sophomore kicker Elton Olvera hit sophomore Holden Foley for the twopoint conversion. With 28 seconds left in the game, the Tigers wrapped up their scoring when freshman quarter back Dillon Lee threw a 17-yard strike to senior wide receiver Chris Da vis. The Tiger defense held the Seahawks to just 42 yards on the ground, on 24 carries, and 52 yards in the air. Senior quarter back Zach Armistead was 2-for-8 for 29 yards and one interception, while junior quarterback TreSean Carr went 2-for-2 for 21 yards. On the ground, junior running back Cole Lee led the team with 21 yards on six carries, with sopho more Dwayne Griggs and junior Skyler Hutchinson each gaining only nine yards, on six and four car ries respectively. Senior Brennan Walden added three yards, on eight car ries. Defensively, the team was led by Walden, with eight solo tackles, and se nior Marcus Dalton, soph omore Leonard Green and Carr each with four. The Seahawks fell to 36, 0-4 in district play, and have a bye this Friday. Highlighting the eve ning were halftimes homecoming events, which featured freshman attendants Mackenzie Register, accompanied by Chandler White; sopho more attendants Haleigh Ming and Alex Causey, and Deborah Dempsey and Dwayne Griggs; and junior attendants Emily Cash and Chase Golden, Shelby Myer and Skyler Hutchinson, and Chena Segree and Cole Lee. Radiant as the home coming court, which this year featured both a king and queen, were senior attendants Kayle Martina and Zach Armistead, Em erald Norris and Steven Jackson, Carli Klink and Tanner Klink, Megan New ell and Brennan Walden and Christina Pateritsas and Javieon Wineld. As anticipation grew, Mr. FCHS Chance Buffkin and Miss FCHS Adreenah Wynn, as well as last years queen Abigail Wharrie, helped to crown the hon orees, Norris as the queen and Wineld the king.

Local The Times | A13 Thursday, November 3, 2011 to temporarily cease cut ting while a city committee forged a tree ordinance. Apalachicola ordered Prog ress to stop pruning trees after an angry crowd con fronted North Florida Com munity Relation Specialist Bobby Pickels at a special city meeting nearly a year ago. After much consideration and meetings with Pickels and several arborists, the city put a tree ordinance in place, but early last month, a tree crew from Asplundh Tree Expert Company ar rived in town and set to work on Avenue F chopping greenery with abandon. They were confronted by angry citizens and Pub lic Works Foreman Wilbur Bellew, who was charged with overseeing Progress pruning efforts. After seeing the condi tion of several palm trees trimmed by Asplundh near the community garden, Bellew confronted the crew at the House of Tartts. I asked them to stop what they were doing until Ms. Webb got there, he said. And they did. Tree committee member Jeff Hewell said, when City Administrator Betty TaylorWebb arrived, she told them to take their equipment and get out of town. The tree crew decamped. The immediate problem with Asplundhs work was a lack of attention to the ap pearance of pruned trees. In several cases palm trees had the living fronds sheared off of one side, but dead mate rial was left in place. During the earlier nego tiations, Bobby Pickels said Progress has an Interna tional Society of Arbocultur ist (certied arborist) and a contract inspector with 30 years of vegetation manage ment experience inspecting pruning work to ensure the company meets the Ameri can National Standards Institute (ANSI) for profes sional arborists standard for accepted tree care in dustry practices. The head of the Asplundh crew told the angry group gathered at the House of Tartts that he was not bound by ANSI standards because he was working in a power easement. Bellew said he expected the tree crew was coming, but he had not been told where or what they would trim. Caroline Weiler, who manages the Raney Cot tage where several trees were removed, said she was informed of what Prog ress had planned and chose not to be present when the work was performed. Bellew and Hewell both said Progress now plans to do minor pruning on Nov. 7 on the north side of US 98 around the power substa tion, and then withdraw un til spring. Webb said she was told work is being postponed out of consideration for ea gles nesting there. Pruning is prohibited within 600 feet of an eagles nest because the birds are protected un der the Endangered Spe cies Act. Some people have spec ulated that recent televi sion coverage of the tree pruning and Progress plans to erect enormous power poles along the Apalachicola waterfront may have caused them to cease work until public fu ror dies down. Hewell said he expects Progress will send crews in the spring from Bur fords Tree Surgeons, an Alabama-based contrac tor that has done satisfac tory work here in the past. Theyve got to notify the city of where and what they will trim, he said. Bellew said he will ac company the crews to su pervise their work on all patriarch trees, those with a trunk caliper that exceeds 35 inches. Hewell said volunteers will be with the crews this spring to observe. As a committee well be watch ing them, he said. Maybe they think its going to go away but were here and we care about Apalachicola. He said Asplundh was the bottom of the barrel (and had) destroyed all the good will (Progress) had so far. Which wasnt much. Weiler said, I think our real strength is making lemonade from these ter rible bitter lemons weve been given. Well have to go on with what weve got and make it as beautiful as we can. The birds will still nest in the trees. NOTICE OF ZONING CHANGE PRUNING from page A1 LOIS SWOBODA | The Times These two palm trees, cut down due to proximity to electrical equipment, were among those trimmed by Asplundh.

Travis Tritt to headline festival SaturdayBy David AdlersteinTimes City Editor With forebears in Franklin County spanning four generations, dependent for their livelihoods on Apalachicola Bay, a young seafood dealer and the great-granddaughter of immigrants reign over this weekend during the 48th annual Florida Seafood Festival. Fresh from her radio and television appearances touting this years event, which culminates in a Saturday night concert by country music giant Travis Tritt, Miss Florida Seafood Christina Pateritsas and King Retsyo Ottice Amison will open festivities Friday afternoon as they arrive to be blessed together along with the eet. Accompanied by the 17-year-old Franklin County High School senior, Amison will stride in a billowing cape and freshly jeweled oyster boots to Battery Parks newest addition, a 20 foot by 20 foot illuminated pavilion on the site of the original festival stage. The donated structure was built by state inmates and funded by the festivals allvolunteer board of directors. Its something we wanted to give back to the community, and to thank the community for its continued support, said John Solomon, president of the festival board. If anyone is deemed worthy to hold title to the throne, protector of the sea, its bounty and its people, it is Amison; former head of the countys seafood task force and present leader of his familys 35-year-old seafood processing operation. His military skills are without reproach. He is a 1990 Apalachicola High School graduate who served the next four and a half years in the Army with the 82nd Airborne Scouts. Father of two sons, Christian, 11, and Colin, 8, Amison works for a company begun as an oyster house by his grandfather, Eddie Amison, in 1976, on land now known as the Lombardi property, at Two Mile. Eddie Amisons son, Jim, continued in the business, and married Ava Bodiford, daughter of L.R. Bodiford, who owned the Bodiford Shrimp Company on Water Street near the present day Wheelhouse Restaurant. L.R. Bodifords father owned a sh market in Panama City. Its an honor. Itll be fun, Amison said. I got a long line of kings I got to live up to. Pateritsas, too, holds royal lineage. She is third in the Nichols family to rule as sovereign over the tides. Her older sister, Isabel, was Miss Florida Seafood two years ago, and her aunt, Rosalie Nichols, won the title in 1974. Roots in the local seafood industry stretch as long for Pateritsas as her brunette hair and as wide as her smile. In 1903, her great-grandparents, John and Miss Florida Seafood Christina Pateritsas, and King Retsyo Ottice Amison.DAVId D AdAD LERSTEIN | The Times xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxThursday, November 3, 2011 50 WWW.APALACHTIMES.COM VOL. 126 ISSUE 27PP hone: 850-653-8868W W e b: apalachtimes.comE E mail: dadlerstein@star.com Fax: 850-653-8036C C i rculation: 800-345-8688Opinion. . . . . . ............A A 4 Society . . . . . . ............A A 8 Faith. . . . . . . ..............A A 9 Outdoors. . . . . ..........A A 10 Sports. . . . . . ............A A 11 Tide Chart. . . . . .........A A 12 Classieds. . . ......A A 14-AA15 DEAEADLINESLINES FOROR NENEXTT WEEWEEK:S School NNews & SSociety: 11 a.m. FridayR R eal EEstate AAds: 11 a.m. ThursdayL L egal AAds: 11 a.m. FridayC C lassied Display AAds: 11 a.m. FridayC C lassied LLine AAds: 5 p.m. Monday CContact Us OOut to see IIndex Fall back Saturday nightBy David AdlersteinTimes City Editor A devastating early morning blaze Tuesday consumed a Carrabelle mobile home and left two families homeless but unhurt. Nelson and Alisha Woods, and their four children, Lee Curry, 14; Tyler Curry, 12; Chelsea Woods, 10; and Montana Woods, 6; escaped between 12:30 a.m. and 1 a.m. from the burning home at 1109 N.E. Fifth Street in Carrabelle. Alishas best friend Brandy Osburn, and her husband Travis, who has been staying with the Woods family to weather some nancial difculties, also lost their possessions in the re, although the couple was in Tallahassee at the time. Brandy Osburn said she received a telephone call sometime before 1 a.m. from Alisha Woods, telling her of the blaze. The couple had been visiting Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, to be with their pastor from the Carrabelle Christian Center, his wife and his child, who had been in a fall. We came back to nothing, said Osburn. I came back to seeing my best friend devastated, to not having a place to live, to two dogs being dead. I came back to nothing. We lost our clothes, our bedroom suite and our animals, but Alisha and their family have lost everything, she said. They have lost way more than we have. They even lost the keys to their car, so they have no way to crank their car because the keys were inside the house. We just ask for prayers and I ask for anybody that can to help the children, said Osburn. They need anything and everything, they have nothing. Alisha Woods said a loud noise jarred the family awake sometime after midnight. We woke up to a big sucking noise and then it went boom and the back door ew off. The thing I thank God for, the pressure from the re blew off the back door, or we probably wouldnt be here. When we woke up, the whole house was already smoked-up inside, she said. Alisha ran to her Nanas house behind them, the home of Mamie and Jesse Millender. Nelson ran back into the house to recover the cell phone, wallet and car keys, but was unsuccessful. Jesse Millender grabbed a water hose, and Carrabelle police ofcer Stephan Simmons jumped from his patrol car, to do what they could. They were trying to save it, said Alisha Woods. There was no hope. Its a complete loss.Carrabelle mobile home re leaves 8 people homeless By LLois SSwobodaTimes Staff Writer Progress Energy has ceased major pruning around transmission lines for now, but Apalachicolas historic district will come on the chopping block again in spring 2012.

Joan Matey, curator of the lighthouse museum, organized the affair with her usual air and attention to detail. Everything was perfect and a nip of fall in the air added to the fun. Cupcakes tinted with appropriate fall colors accompanied the more substantial fare from the Pit Stop restaurant. Many guests came in Halloween couture and a blue fairy uttered around the grounds exchanging greetings with pirates, pumpkins and an ET look-alike. There was plenty of entertainment for all ages. Lighthouse Park was ablaze with radiance and color during a sparkling evening that featured music by strolling minstrels Aisha Ivey and Frank Lindamood. Along with lighthouse climbs, there were lantern crafting and beading stations on the porch for youngsters. Demonstrations of scrimshaw and blacksmithing techniques were also on site. Against the backdrop of the pirate ship Carrabella, Andy Edell regaled his audience with tales of lighthouse keepers of long ago. Director Ben Gunter brought his Theatre with a Mission troupe to Carrabelle to perform Discovery of the New World, written by Lope de Vega between 1598 and 1603. This is the rst stage play known to have featured New World settings. Christopher Columbus and his lesser-known brother Bart, based on the explorers real-life brother Bartholomew, are among the characters. The Tallahassee Community College dancers, directed by Aurora Hansen, performed an astonishing dance featuring colored lights as the night drew in. Culmination of the enchanted evening was a chorus of Happy Birthday to the Light and a procession around the grounds carrying lanterns that glowed gaily among the lamps strung between the trees. Proceeds from the event go to support the Crooked River Light. To view a gallery of the Lanternfest celebration, go to www.apalachtimes.com.

This story comes to us from Harry Gray, who grew up in Carrabelle. Gray said he remembers the Third Street Cemetery but recalls graves outlined with shells and wooden markers instead of stone markers. He shared this story about it. Three very young teenaged girls, Lukie Barrow, Addie Bird and Alma Page, were walking from Carrabelle to Harbeson City one Sunday. In the past, funerals were usually held on Sunday so working people could attend. They walked past the Third Street Cemetery on the way, and there was a funeral in progress. The pallbearers began lifting the cofn, a plain wooden box, on ropes to lower it into the grave, when one of the ropes slipped or broke and the cofn tumbled sideways. The lid came off and the occupant spilled out. As the girls watched in horror, the mourners stared at one another, but nobody wanted to touch the corpse. One by one, the bereaved began to back away and then to run, leaving the deceased to fend for himself as the girls broke into laughter. Gray also had an interesting memory about Evergreen Cemetery. He said that at one time, the road into the cemetery was a dead end. Drivers would pull as far in as they could to park, and those who arrived later parked behind them. This meant that the rst to arrive had to wait for latecomers to exit before they could leave. At a large funeral, the whole process could take hours. Gray said his family donated the land to allow the trafc loop to be completed and end the gridlock at the grave. Lois SwobodaHelp save lives with re safety tipsSpecial to The TimesEvery 82 seconds, a home re breaks out, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. Fires can cause irreparable damage to homes and businesses, displacing families and employees. Last year, the American Red Cross responded to 63,000 home res across the country and provided comfort and basic necessities to those affected. From Oct. 9-15, the Red Cross helped families and businesses learn how to protect themselves and others from res in observance of National Fire Prevention Week. Taking simple steps like installing smoke detectors and developing and practicing a re escape plan can make a critical difference in saving lives, homes and workplaces, said Dan Samborn, CEO, who recommends that every family and business develop and practice a re safety plan. Everyone at home, school and work should know what to do when they hear the sound of a smoke alarm. Additional recommendations include: Install smoke alarms on every level of the house and inside bedrooms. Replace batteries in smoke alarms at least once a year. Test each alarm monthly by pushing the test button. Ensure that household members know two ways to escape from every room and designate a place to meet outside of your house in case of a re. Practice your plan at least twice a year. Follow your escape plan in case of re. Get out, stay out and call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number. Visit www.redcross.org/homeres for additional re safety tips. Business, too, should be prepared. Fire is the most common of all business disasters. Companies, schools and other organizations can learn how to prepare for res and other emergencies by becoming a member of the Red Cross Ready Rating Program at www. readyrating.org. Complete a free, online assessment of your current readiness level and receive customized feedback with tips to improve preparedness. In addition to helping families and businesses prepare their homes and facilities for potential res, the Red Cross is there to help those in need when res break out. The Capital Area Chapter responded to 190 home res last year. In order to continue responding to disasters like res at homes and businesses here in Tallahassee, the Red Cross depends on the generous support of individuals and businesses in the community, Samborn said. Those who want to help people affected can make a donation to support the American Red Cross. Their gift will enable the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other disaster assistance in time of need. Donation information can be found at www.tallyredcross.org, by calling the chapter at 878-6080 or by mail to the Capital Area Chapter Red Cross, 1115 Easterwood Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32311. The death this August of Georgia high school football star DJ Searcy refocused attention on Floridas need for more guidelines to prevent h eat-related deaths.  The young athlete, who died at a football camp in North Florida, was the second in Florida and one of 13 fatalities nationwide this past year. To change that, Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, on Oct. 4 announced the ling of legislation designed to prevent deaths caused by heat illness and institute preventative lifesaving measures to protect student athletes. Adoption of the new law would ensure the safety of high school interscholastic athletics, cheerleaders and marching bands and make Florida the rst state in the South to pass such legislation. The well-being of our children is not only critical inside our classrooms, but on our playing elds as well, Montford said. In the extreme heat we have here in the South, this legislation will assist school districts in meeting the challenge of providing an even safer environment for our young people. Heat exhaustion claims the life of high school football players at an alarming rate, and the soaring temperatures across the nation this summer created no e xception to this pattern.  Searcy, a defensive lineman, was a star on his Fitzgerald, Ga., high school football team and was recruited by several Division I college football p rograms.  He was only with his football team for three days at the North Florida camp before passing out in the bathroom after a day of practice in extreme heat the night of Aug. 1. The next morning, he lost consciousness after practice and d ied.   On what would have been Searcys 17th birthday, Dr. Douglas J. Casa, Korey Stringer Institutes chief operating ofcer, explained that heat-related deaths are 100 percent preventable in two ways: having emergency plans in place to bring down the core body temperature, and taking precautions to prevent body temperatures from getting e xtremely high.  The National Athletic Trainers Association issued an inter-association consensus statement in 2009 with recommendations on how to acclimate athletes to hot-weather activity gradually with specics as to the limitation of duration and equipment worn during high s chool athletic practices.  Studies also have shown that for about $150, coaches and athletic trainers can purchase a tub to ll with ice, which drastically increases a persons chance of survival when experiencing heat illness. Nationwide, New Jersey is the only state to have adopted these l ifesaving guidelines.  Concerned parents are urging state legislators from Florida and Georgia to adopt new laws with these or similar guidelines to ensure the safety of high school interscholastic athletes, cheerleaders and marching bands. Additional information for parents and educators can be found at www. change.org. William J. Montford is the state senator for Floridas District 6, which includes Franklin County. The Statewide Public Librarians Conference, put on by the State Library and Archives, happened again a couple weeks ago. Your librarian always comes back with a lot of ideas for things to improve services to the whole community of Apalachicola. Future columns will be about some of those ideas, but I thought this week I would show my readers a glimpse of whats up right now. The Apalachicola library is probably one of the most basic libraries in the state of Florida. It does not offer a lot of services common in other larger public libraries. An example is that it does not offer check-outs of eBooks. Electronic format books have become so common in libraries across the country that some authors do not even publish their books in hardcover, which is what most libraries would want to buy, but offer paperback and eBooks only. Behind-the-scenes library research is being done on how to make eBooks accessible for library patrons. The Apalachicola library is one of very few in Florida that still uses a paper check-out card system. I know many patrons like it this way, but the change to an electronic system will be happening in 2012 because of state privacy laws and because it is time to make the system easier to run for the library itself. We have a contract with a company called Biblionix to automate the collection. There are so few libraries without a computer-based collection that nding a company that supplies support for a retrospective conversion, as a paper to data conversion is called, was a trick. If you come to the library just to check out paper books or to use the Internet services from our six public computers, you might not be aware of all the things that are going in behind the scenes. Volunteers are scanning the bar codes on books; new books are being processed directly into the automation database. In addition, numerous donated books are constantly being evaluated for retention. Thirty boxes came in a few weeks ago Thursday, just as we were getting ready for Authors in Apalach. Those books not kept by the library will be sold at our Seafood Festival booth, coming up this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4-5. If you would like to see what volunteering feels like, sign up to help sell books. Two hours is the minimum, and that time will go fast. Caty Greene is the librarian for the Apalachicola Municipal Library. To reach her, call 6538436. Q. With the telephone system you have in place, its hard to get a live person each time I call. Can you make improvements? A. I dont like to get a machine when I make a call either; however, telephones with answering systems are a necessity in my ofce, especially considering the economy. There are deputy clerks who must be available in sessions of court as well as all county commission meetings. The deputy clerks must be prepared to deliver court paperwork to the judges ofce on a routine basis. The deputy clerks are required to be away from their desks to conduct foreclosure and tax deed sales. The deputy clerks must complete banking business daily. My ofce consists of ve separate rooms in the courthouse, which isnt the ideal situation either, but it works.

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, November 3, 2011 NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETINGThe Board of Commissioners of the Northwest Florida Regional Housing Authority will hold a Special Meeting on November 15, 2011, at the Holiday Inn & Suites, 2725 Graves Road, Tallahassee, Florida. Meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. E.S.T. The meeting will be open to the public. Fireghters from Carrabelle, Eastpoint and nearby departments extinguished the blaze. Dead were the familys two dogs, a poodle and a pug-Pekinese mix. We lost two family pets that meant the world to us, said Alisha. Its hard. My autistic son is taking it really hard, worse than any of them. He doesnt understand. They dont like change. He lost everything that he could have that is his. The American Red Cross has put up the two families in the Franklin Inn until Friday, when Mamie Millender hopes to have a vacant trailer she owns cleaned and readied for them to move into, Alisha Woods said. She said the state re marshals ofce told her a dryer may have been the cause since the laundry room appeared to be the hottest spot of the blaze. Alisha Woods said the family had just bought a new high-efciency front-loading dryer. It was brand new, she said. I just made the second payment on that thing. Franklin County Middle School Dean Eric Bidwell has been busy trying to get clothes for the family. Alisha Woods said the family is in need of boys pants 29 waist, 30 length; boys size 18 and girls sizes 8 and 10. Nelson wears a mans 40 waist, 32 length, and Alisha a 3X womans. Gathana Parmenas, a case worker with the Red Cross, said the organization has provided them assistance for immediate emergency needs, but they will require further help in replacing household goods, clothing and necessities. To offer help, call Franklins Promise Coalition at 653-3930. FIRE from page A1Garaphylia Nichols, moved to Apalachicola from Trekiri, Greece, and worked, as so many immigrants did, in a Gulf of Mexico which provided sh, oysters, sponges, scallops and shrimp for the taking. They would later open the Owl Caf to serve the shing community around the clock. Not only is the festival the oldest maritime event in Florida, it celebrates the culture and lifestyle granted to us by the seafood from our waters, said Pateritsas, daughter of Callie Nichols, of Apalachicola, and Mario Pateritsas, of Greece. The festival is enjoyed by thousands of visitors and serves as a homecoming for Apalachicolas sons and daughters, who come home to celebrate with local friends and families who still live and work here. King Retsyo and I are really looking forward to hosting all of our guests. We know that a good time will be had by all! Fewer commercial booths, from 32 down to 15, and growth in arts and crafts are among the changes at this years event. This year the festival is proud to announce we have over 80 arts and crafts booths with 25 local crafters participating, Solomon said. The directors also increased the not-for-prot area, allowing more spaces for non-prot groups to been seen and hand out information on their organizations. Also new will be the Franklin County Photo Contest, featuring images from within the county, which will be judged by the festivals visitors. Judging will be held Friday and Saturday at the tent next to the T-shirt tent, with the winner announced at 4 p.m. Saturday at the information booth. We encourage all visitors to stop by and vote on their favorite picture, Solomon said. Making its debut, will be an antique and classic car show at the east of the main gate area, as well as maritime heritage exhibits that demonstrate how local seafood workers harvest the areas seafood. Following Saturday mornings 8 a.m. Redsh Run from the steps of the Gibson Inn and the parade at 10 a.m. down U.S. Highway 98, the afternoon will feature the delicious oyster shucking and eating events at 1 p.m. near the main stage. Last years shucking champ, Mike Martin, was sponsored by the festival at last weekends St. Marys Oyster Festival in Maryland, where he named winner of the two-day National Oyster Shucking Championship Contest and now has a chance to compete in the World Oyster Shucking Championships in Galway, Ireland. The festival would like to encourage anyone from the community to come compete in the shucking contest and show off our local talent and win a spot in the National Oyster Shucking Championships, Solomon said. To delight visitors, the blue crab races, sponsored by Fishermans Choice, are even better than last year. The festival directors saw the overwhelming need to expand the crab races, so we built an additional two new sections to the track and improved on the design, Solomon said. Now 20 kids can participate in the races at the same time, up from only 12 per race the last few years. The races are still free to enter for children 12 and under. Every child that participates will win a prize. An enormous crowd is expected for Tritts 8 p.m. Saturday night appearance as he brings the energy and excitement that has made him one of the leading country singers of the early 90s. Known for a touch of bluesy Southern rock, Tritt honed an outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. Throughout the early 90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top Ten singles, including hits such as Help Me Hold On, Im Gonna Be Somebody, T-r-o-u-b-l-e, Can I Trust You With My Heart and, in 2001, Its a Great Day to Be Alive. Solomon, now in his eighth year on the festival board, said he was most appreciative of all the directors hard work Tress Reynolds, Jennifer Brown, Andrea Register, Ted Mosteller, Carl Whaley, Betty Webb, Michael Shuler, Danny Gay, Kevin Ward, Pam Brownell, Robert Shelley and Danielle Layne. It takes months of planning and many dedicated people to give up time away from their families and friends, he said. I want to thank the families of our directors for allowing them the time and understanding the importance of their volunteer time. Thank you for your support. Without you, they could not do such a wonderful job. I can honestly say that the people that I have been blessed to work with over these years give everything they have for the community and the festival. This year is no exception.

The Carrabelle Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a culinary adventure for the latest group of writers visiting the area at the invitation the Tourist Development Council. Once again, Geiger and Associates of Tallahassee arranged for the junket to the coast. The feast took place on the balcony at CQuarters overlooking the waterfront. The setting was perfect, and the food was outstanding, according to the many appreciative diners. Staff at the marina worked diligently to provide a perfect venue. Participating restaurants included 2 Als, Fish Camp Restaurant, Hog Wild, Franklin County High School Culinary Academy, Carrabelle Junction, Marker 30, Crooked River Grill, Fathoms Steam and Raw Bar and Millender Seafood Market.By Lois SwobodaTimes Staff Writer About two dozen people attended an Oct. 25 luncheon sponsored by Refuge House to bring the darkness of domestic violence into the light. Carol Bareld, Franklin Countys Refuge House counselor, told the group that October was Domestic Violence Awareness Month. She said this years theme is It takes the community to prevent domestic violence. Refuge House Executive Director Meg Baldwin said she was pleased her organization now has a representative in the county. Over the last two years, Refuge House has been criticized by county commissioners for failing to maintain an ofce and provide the county with a locally based employee. The luncheon took place at Papa Joes. Keynote speaker was Dawn Radford, who read the poem Mamas Place and spoke on her childhood experience with domestic violence. She said the support of her church family did much to sustain her through those times. Whenever there was a supper at the Methodist church, the ladies would sit me right in the front and put their hands on my shoulders and made sure my plate was full, she said. It made a huge difference to know somebody cared. Bareld and Radford both stressed the need for early education to shape the behavior of young people. We must start early to establish boundaries in these kids minds, Radford said. Among those in attendance at the meal were Sheriff Skip Shiver and Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson as well as representatives from Weems Memorial Hospital and the Apalachicola Police Department. Radford reminded the group that if you suspect someone is being abused, you have a legal as well as an ethical obligation to seek help for them.

Coarsey Jr. ObituariesSome time ago, my daughter and I were discussing the responsibility parents have to teach their children about serving God. We discussed how teaching Godly principles and establishing a habit of church attendance was vitally important at a young age. She was quiet for a moment before she said she had something to tell me. She cautiously searched for her words then said, Well There is this thing that you do that really bothers me As she shared with me how this thing was hindering her, I could feel a lump form in my throat. She appreciated the way we raised her yet there was a piece of fruit missing from my tree that made her skeptical of the overcoming power we claim to possess. My face began to feel warm as I envisioned myself standing before the throne of God. I could imagine Him saying, You raised your children in church and taught them My principles but theres that thing Whatever your doctrinal views may be, the issue of those we cause to stagger in their faith always resonates. When our thing is not corrected, we place a block in front of our weaker brother or sister that causes them to stumble. Luke 17:1,2 says: And He said to his disciples, Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. Gods grace is sufcient but only a fool treads on it as if the price that was paid for it was in vain. It would be like purchasing a shirt that cost you your entire savings as a gift for a stranger, only to nd him using it for an oil rag. In the end, my daughter is responsible for her own salvation and even though I was vaguely aware of that one little thing that she spoke of, I am responsible for the way I have mentored her. It would have been easier to nd excuses but I chose to acknowledge my weakness and work on changing. As P.K.s (preachers kids), our children saw more carnality than most church kids are ever aware of. Although we should always control our tongues and actions, church folks sometimes fall short, but in the end of it all, we forgive and love each other, much like any other family. Mature Christians understand that we strive daily to crucify our esh and of all of our body parts, the tongue is the most difcult to tame. Young people view carnality as duplicity, and sometimes good is just not good enough if they see no difference in the church and the world. Since the majority of todays youth do not readily take adults at their word, they are skeptical of anything that is not backed by evidence. They are looking for something authentic, not a stained-glassed masquerade. Parents used to tell their children to do as I say, not as I do. That method obviously is ineffective because most children adopt whatever the parent was trying to deter. If we drink, smoke, dip, cuss, do drugs, etc. statistically our child might also. Our kids are not fooled if we act as if these habits are not a problem in our life. Of course, there are justied sins like speeding, cheating on your taxes, gossiping, pride, lying (even telling white ones if there is such a thing), backbiting, greed, selshness, and withholding Gods portion of money and time. These sins are less repulsive to the body but equally destructive to the soul. Consequently, all of these examples tear down our witness to our children and to the world. A few weeks ago, one of our associate pastors made a good analogy in his message. He said that if a man were to walk in the church with a suit on and a Bible under his arm, we would shake his hand and refer to him as brother, not even knowing the condition of the mans heart. The suit does not make the man, nor does the outward appearance denote the spiritual heart. To most people, my daughters grievance would have been trivial, but to me, I felt as if I stood between my daughter and eternity. My desire is to show her, through example, the power that we possess to be overcomers in this life. Pursuit of perfection is futile but living each day as if it is the last chance I will ever have to reach a lost soul is worth striving for excellence. Especially if it is my own childs soul.

Gingers were popular with the Victorians, but because most gingers are cold-sensitive, the British never tried growing the plant outside. When conservatories fell out of popularity, so too did gingers. Kew Gardens botanist Tony Schilling traveled to Nepal in 1965 and rediscovered white ginger, which became immensely popular when gardeners realized it was winter-hardy. White ginger is the national ower of Cuba, where it is known as Mariposa Blanca, literally White Buttery, because of its resemblance to a ying white buttery. The incredibly fragrant owers, reminiscent of gardenia, were used by women to adorn themselves in Spanish colonial times. There is a tradition that Cuban women used the large white blossoms to carry secret messages during the revolution. White ginger roots have been used in incense, a tranquilizer and as a avoring in chewing tobacco. In Hawaii, the owers are woven into leis; in Thailand they are steamed and eaten. In the Victorian language of owers, white ginger was a symbol of health and good fortune. In most of South America, white ginger is very common and considered an invasive weed. The same is true in Hawaii. In Florida, it has not yet proved a troublesome invasive and is a popular garden plant. Because it requires a deep root system, white ginger does not do well in containers. This attractive plant stands 3 to 7 feet tall. From midsummer through autumn, the stalks are topped with 6to 12-inch-long clusters of wonderfully fragrant white owers that eventually give way to showy seed pods full of bright red seeds. It grows in full sun but prefers some shade and needs rich moist soil to thrive. White ginger is easily propagated from rootstock, and there are cultivars commercially available in a variety of colors. November means the 2011-12 huntin seasons in full swing. In this months column, I cover most everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail and gray squirrel, snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove seasons. The rst thing you need to do is pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs), youll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but dont forget to study the brochure for the specic area you plan to hunt because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at the tax collectors ofce near each WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/ Hunting. You can buy your license and permits by calling 888HUNT-FLORIDA or online at www..wildlifelicense. com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from Tax Collector Jimmy Harris ofce and most retail outlets that sell hunting and shing supplies. The general gun season runs Nov. 5 to Jan. 22 in Zone C; Dec. 3 to Feb. 19 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 19 to Jan. 1. In Zone D, which extends from Wakulla and Gadsden counties west to Alabama, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 24) and lasts four days through Nov. 27. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 10 and runs through Feb. 19. Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler 5 inches or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer. In some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMA brochure before hunting. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the WMA brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 19-25 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C, and Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D, which includes Franklin County. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day as you can during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 19 to Jan. 1. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 3 to Jan. 29 and Nov. 5 to Jan. 1, respectively. And in Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 24-27 and Dec. 10 to Jan. 15, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game, and you must have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day, and a total of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall turkey seasons combined. Quail and gray squirrel season runs statewide Nov. 12 to March 4. Theres a daily bag limit of 12 for each, but shooting fox squirrels is against the law. Shooting hours for deer, turkeys, quail and gray squirrels is a halfhour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. All legal ries, shotguns, muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer, fall turkey and quail and gray squirrel seasons. Florida snipe hunting ranks second in the nation for the number of birds harvested each year. That season runs Nov. 1 to Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 12-27. Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit is 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds. The FWC even provides an online Dove Hunters Hotline that gives upto-date information on Floridas public dove elds. The address is MyFWC. com/Dove, and its updated every Thursday throughout the dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and eld conditions. Whether small-game hunting with friends and family or hunting solo, going after that monster buck, boar hog or big tom, November brings loads of great hunting opportunities. Heres wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and a successful hunting season. Tony Young, an avid sportsman and native Floridian, is media relations coordinator for the FWCs Division of Hunting and Game Management and lives in Tallahassee with his family.By Stan KirklandFlorida Fish and Wildlife Commission In less than two weeks, anyone who visits the lower Apalachicola River will swear a war has broken out. Rest assured, its no war, but the annual opening of squirrel season. Small-game season, which is the open season for gray squirrel and quail, runs from Nov. 12 to March 4 throughout the state. Hunters are allowed to kill 12 squirrels daily. The lower Apalachicola River isnt the only area where squirrel hunters will be out in numbers. In the Florida Panhandle, therell be lots of squirrel hunters hunting the hardwoods along practically every river and creek where they have access. On the Apalachicola River below Wewahitchka, most of the boat ramps will be crowded with trucks and boat trailers while their owners hunt out of their boats. Where theres private property, some hunters use simple cabins as their base for sleeping and eating. Other hunters use tents and sleep primitive style, on the ground. One hunter who made the trip every year for almost 30 years is Tony Bigot of Fort Walton Beach. The 64-year-old hasnt hunted the past couple of years but he said it was a trip that he and eight or nine friends made together every year. It was really a ritual for us. We would go down on Friday afternoon or night (the day before the opening), sleep in a friends cabin and then hunt Saturday morning and go back in the afternoon, he said. Bigot said they hunted near Brothers River and generally found lots of squirrels. Sometimes youd kill your bag limit in a couple hours. But usually, wed get ve or six in the morning and about that many in the afternoon. Bigot said he always prided himself on his sense of direction and being able to nd his way back to the camp, but one day every oak, gum and cypress looked the same and he knew he was lost. After wandering in circles for several hours, he found a guy cutting rewood and paid him $5 to take him back to the boat landing. My friends were there looking for me. I took a lot of kidding, he said. Bigot said he enjoyed his annual opening-weekend trip so much that he took both his son and daughter to experience the Southern tradition. We enjoyed the hunt but all the other stuff eating camp food, sitting around a re at night and smelling like smoke, and everyone telling stories about their hunt those are things Ill always remember, he said.

The Tiger trio of sophomore Javakiel Brigham, senior Marquel Thomas and senior Jawon Mosley led a ground attack that tallied 233 yards on 34 carries, as the defense shut out the Seahawks for the rst three quarters. We wanted to come down here and be able to run the football, said Tigers coach Greg Jordan. Defensively weve been playing well. We needed to have some positive things happen. Happen they did, beginning with a 14-yard toss from sophomore quarterback Hunter Jordan to Mosley with 5:44 left in the rst quarter. Jordan nished a perfect 5-for-ve from the air, for 108 yards. On the opening drive, on successive fourth downs, Franklin County coach Josh Wright went for the rst downs and got them. But for most of the game, the team had a hard time mustering a sustained offense. The Blountstown offense exploded in the second quarter with four more scores, a 7-yard run by Thomas, a 4-yard burst by Mosley, who also caught a 14-yard scoring toss from Jordan, and a 31-yard scamper by Brigham with 27 seconds left before halftime, giving the Tigers a commanding 33-0 lead going into the locker room. Blountstown got the running clock started less than 30 seconds into the second half, when Mosley ran the opening kickoff back to the Seahawks 15yard line, and then ran it in a play later. He nished with 46 yards, Brigham 66 yards and Thomas 53 yards. The Seahawks got on the board with 9:38 left in the game, when junior quarterback TreSean Carr threw an 11-yard score to junior Ladarious Rhodes. Sophomore kicker Elton Olvera hit sophomore Holden Foley for the twopoint conversion. With 28 seconds left in the game, the Tigers wrapped up their scoring when freshman quarterback Dillon Lee threw a 17-yard strike to senior wide receiver Chris Davis. The Tiger defense held the Seahawks to just 42 yards on the ground, on 24 carries, and 52 yards in the air. Senior quarterback Zach Armistead was 2-for-8 for 29 yards and one interception, while junior quarterback TreSean Carr went 2-for-2 for 21 yards. On the ground, junior running back Cole Lee led the team with 21 yards on six carries, with sophomore Dwayne Griggs and junior Skyler Hutchinson each gaining only nine yards, on six and four carries respectively. Senior Brennan Walden added three yards, on eight carries. Defensively, the team was led by Walden, with eight solo tackles, and senior Marcus Dalton, sophomore Leonard Green and Carr each with four. The Seahawks fell to 36, 0-4 in district play, and have a bye this Friday. Highlighting the evening were halftimes homecoming events, which featured freshman attendants Mackenzie Register, accompanied by Chandler White; sophomore attendants Haleigh Ming and Alex Causey, and Deborah Dempsey and Dwayne Griggs; and junior attendants Emily Cash and Chase Golden, Shelby Myer and Skyler Hutchinson, and Chena Segree and Cole Lee. Radiant as the homecoming court, which this year featured both a king and queen, were senior attendants Kayle Martina and Zach Armistead, Emerald Norris and Steven Jackson, Carli Klink and Tanner Klink, Megan Newell and Brennan Walden and Christina Pateritsas and Javieon Wineld. As anticipation grew, Mr. FCHS Chance Buffkin and Miss FCHS Adreenah Wynn, as well as last years queen Abigail Wharrie, helped to crown the honorees, Norris as the queen and Wineld the king. Float winner from the afternoon parade was the sophomores, class of 2014, with rst runner up the juniors, class of 2013. Serving as parade marshal was Franklin County teacher Stephanie Howze, who is back teaching after intensive therapy for cancer.

LocalThe Times | A13Thursday, November 3, 2011 to temporarily cease cutting while a city committee forged a tree ordinance. Apalachicola ordered Progress to stop pruning trees after an angry crowd confronted North Florida Community Relation Specialist Bobby Pickels at a special city meeting nearly a year ago. After much consideration and meetings with Pickels and several arborists, the city put a tree ordinance in place, but early last month, a tree crew from Asplundh Tree Expert Company arrived in town and set to work on Avenue F chopping greenery with abandon. They were confronted by angry citizens and Public Works Foreman Wilbur Bellew, who was charged with overseeing Progress pruning efforts. After seeing the condition of several palm trees trimmed by Asplundh near the community garden, Bellew confronted the crew at the House of Tartts. I asked them to stop what they were doing until Ms. Webb got there, he said. And they did. Tree committee member Jeff Hewell said, when City Administrator Betty TaylorWebb arrived, she told them to take their equipment and get out of town. The tree crew decamped. The immediate problem with Asplundhs work was a lack of attention to the appearance of pruned trees. In several cases palm trees had the living fronds sheared off of one side, but dead material was left in place. During the earlier negotiations, Bobby Pickels said Progress has an International Society of Arboculturist (certied arborist) and a contract inspector with 30 years of vegetation management experience inspecting pruning work to ensure the company meets the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for professional arborists standard for accepted tree care industry practices. The head of the Asplundh crew told the angry group gathered at the House of Tartts that he was not bound by ANSI standards because he was working in a power easement. Bellew said he expected the tree crew was coming, but he had not been told where or what they would trim. Caroline Weiler, who manages the Raney Cottage where several trees were removed, said she was informed of what Progress had planned and chose not to be present when the work was performed. Bellew and Hewell both said Progress now plans to do minor pruning on Nov. 7 on the north side of US 98 around the power substation, and then withdraw until spring. Webb said she was told work is being postponed out of consideration for eagles nesting there. Pruning is prohibited within 600 feet of an eagles nest because the birds are protected under the Endangered Species Act. Some people have speculated that recent television coverage of the tree pruning and Progress plans to erect enormous power poles along the Apalachicola waterfront may have caused them to cease work until public furor dies down. Hewell said he expects Progress will send crews in the spring from Burfords Tree Surgeons, an Alabama-based contractor that has done satisfactory work here in the past. Theyve got to notify the city of where and what they will trim, he said. Bellew said he will accompany the crews to supervise their work on all patriarch trees, those with a trunk caliper that exceeds 35 inches. Hewell said volunteers will be with the crews this spring to observe. As a committee well be watching them, he said. Maybe they think its going to go away but were here and we care about Apalachicola. He said Asplundh was the bottom of the barrel (and had) destroyed all the good will (Progress) had so far. Which wasnt much. Weiler said, I think our real strength is making lemonade from these terrible bitter lemons weve been given. Well have to go on with what weve got and make it as beautiful as we can. The birds will still nest in the trees.
