On Monday, Derek Adkins, project manager for the Army Corps of Engineers, said Crowder spokesman Odie Lazlo telephoned him Friday to make changes to his proposed project. Crowder initially planned to remove recreational boat slips and re t the waterfront for use by barges to store and transport shell mined in Liberty County. Crowders move came a day after Carrabelle city commissioners voted 3-2 to support Crowders plan to remove the pilings for 35 of 41 boat slips from C-Quarters. Crowder now plans to use the space to accommodate larger commercial vessels for loading and unloading seafood. Adkins said the Corps will issue a notice of the revised permit request after which the public will then have an additional 30 days to comment. Crowder spokesman Odie Lazlo presented Crowders original plan before the city commission March 3 before a standing room only audience of more than 100 people. County Attorney Dan Hartman said both the corps and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, who have jurisdiction over permitting, had received much input on the plan, with Crowder seeking city support for the change. Commissioner Brenda La Paz said both regulatory agencies have had overwhelming interest from stakeholders. Lazlo was accompanied by Joe Shields, environmental administrator for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Aquaculture. (CQuarters) has not made a dime 1 dead in wreck on Gorrie Bridge By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com A head-on collision May 2 on the Gorrie Bridge took the life of an Eastpoint woman and sent two other people to the hospital with serious injuries. Vicky Harris Segree, 54, was killed when the 2005 Kia Sedona she was driving eastbound on U.S. 98 toward Eastpoint, on the Gorrie Bridge about 1.7 miles west of Bay Shore Drive, was struck by a 1997 Toyota pickup truck driven by Chandler B. Moses, 19, of Apalachicola. According to a report by Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Aaron Stephens, Moses was heading westbound towards Apalachicola about 9:20 p.m. when he By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com County commissioners set a deadline last week for striking a deal with the proposed xed base operator of the Apalachicola Regional Airport, making 5 p.m. Wednesday the mandatory time of arrival for a lease agreement. At a special meeting Thursday, held jointly with members of the airport advisory board, county commissioners voted unanimously to a series of tweaks to the language of a proposed ve-year deal with Fly High, of Lexington, NC. The basic terms of the deal with Fly High, and its president, Karel Van Der Linden, remain the same: a $1,500 monthly rent on the facility, a 10 percent cut of the fees for tying-down an aircraft on the tarmac, and an eight-cent fee for every gallon of fuel sold. The commissioners, with Cheryl Sanders absent due to knee surgery, spent much of the meeting addressing a series of changes Van Der Linden had proposed to County Attorney Michael Shuler, and for the most part, the commissioners were on the same page as the airport board. They agree to allow Van Der Linden to pay rent quarterly, as opposed to monthly, for the rst year of the deal, to give him some breathing room as he assumes control over a facility long under the direction of Bill Ruic, and his company, Apalachicola international Airport Center. Ruics departure this weekend was not without tension, after the long-time xed base operator had shut down the fuel farm and disconnected the telephone in advance of his leaving. In addition, County sets airport lease deadline NOAH LOCKLEY See WRECK A9 See AIRPORT A9 See LOCKLEY A5 See CROWDER A5 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com T he Chestnut Street Cemetery in Apalachicola was the scene Saturday night of much mystery and enlightenment as the Apalachicola Area Historical Society once again put on a successful Ghost Walk. Held just before the full moon glowed overhead against a night sky, the event drew several hundred people, and signed up several new members to the society. Taking part in portraying the lives of several colorful personalities interred in the cemetery were: Katherine Anne Shimonis, as her grandmother Anna Buzzett Fry Annette Fagan, as pioneering black innkeeper Mary Fuller Eric Springer, as reputed outlaw John Younger (in photo at lower right) Caty Greene as murderess Marie Hickey Sallie Crown as the outspoken Lizzie Hoffman (in photo at top) Gene Smith as Dr. Alvan Chapman John Inzetta as Dr. John Gorrie Melonie Inzetta as seafood proprietor Louisa Messina (in photo at right) Livia Monod as Messinas granddaughter, who drowned tragically (In photo at right) Tiffany Tif n, as Messinas daughter Stacie DeVaughn as the amboyant Olive Ruge Rusmisel Mike Kinnett as Thomas Orman Judy Lofton as the mysterious Lizzie Cooper I think everyone who took the tour enjoyed it except for two pre-teen boys who were expecting more of a spectral experience, said Mark Curenton, who helped organize the walk. Evidently they had been watching ghost hunters on television and were expecting the tour guides to have ghost meters to measure disturbances in the aura. Other than those two, I did not hear anything except good comments from people as they were leaving the cemetery. Weems sells pork butts Friday In honor of our local hospital during National Hospital Week, the Weems Healthcare Foundation is selling award winning smoked/ grilled whole pork butts for $25. The foundation will be at Riverfront Park in downtown Apalachicola from noon until 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 11. Whole cakes and pies will also be for sale. Plein Air Paint-out ends Sunday The Plein Air PaintOut continues through Sunday with lots of activities in Franklin County. On Saturday May 12, from 9-11 a.m. at Riverfront Park, look for artists DeWaard and Oversmith as they document the Apalachicola River and the boats that ply it as a working waterfront. Also on Saturday, the Plein Air Grand Patrons Party will be from 6:30-10 p.m. at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art. Tickets are $40. On Sunday, May 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art, watch painters Charles Dickinson, Bill Farnsworth and Greg Barnes capture the street scenes amid the family festivities that mark the end of Americas Great Paint-out.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, May 10, 2012 By Lois Swoboda 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com State Rep. Leonard Bembry addressed the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Congress at their May 2 luncheon at the Blue Parrot Ocean Front Caf on St. George Island. Bembry, widely considered among the most conservative Democrats in Floridas legislature, has announced his candidacy for Floridas 2nd Congressional seat. He is being challenged by Tallahassee Democrat Al Lawson for the right to take on Panama City Republican Steve Southerland. At the luncheon, he told chamber members he is a farmer from North Florida whose family has roots in the Panhandle dating back to 1851. I have nine grandchildren, he said. Thats nine good reasons to be concerned with the future of Florida. I was a farmer and businessman for almost 40 years before I decided that it was my responsibility to pursue public service, he said. I am grounded in North Florida because its always been my home. Bembry spoke of many difficult decisions the Florida House has been called upon to make during his four years in office, citing redistricting, the bids to privatize schools and prisons, and of course budget deficits. He said he hoped recent fiscal constraints will encourage Florida legislators to, Go forward with a little more responsiveness to the dollars we spend. After he took office and began to serve, Bembry said he realized he, had no idea how what we (state legislatures) do affects the lives of the people. He said his decisions became very personal to him, after that realization. I began to consider how decisions made in Tallahassee will look in Apalachicola and Carrabelle, he said. He called the children our most precious resource and spoke of seeking ways to provide them with jobs in the future. He said the Florida economy, though embattled, was resilient. What we lose in agriculture, we gain back in tourism, Bembry said. He also spoke of the great value of natural resources and called their stewardship a sacred trust. Bembry bemoaned the fact that county health departments are under re. Our biggest problem in the small rural counties is direct delivery of health services, he said. Funding of health departments will be an issue going forward. He also criticized budget cuts to county clerks of court last year. BAYVIEW HOME ST.

ML S#240643...............$270,000 By VALERIE GARMAN 229-7843 | @valeriegarman vgarman@star .com A plein air artist can produce a snapshot without a camera. Through open-air painting, artists freeze time using their paints and brushes, aiming to capture speci c moments like the lull in the sky before an afternoon storm, the measure of light just before the sun sinks below the horizon or a perfectly jagged lightning strike over the bay. The Forgotten Coast is hosting 21 artists from across the country as they set out to capture the atmosphere of Old Florida on canvas. The seventh annual Floridas Forgotten Coast Plein Air Invitational began May 3 and runs through Sunday, with events scheduled from Carrabelle to Mexico Beach. Artists from previous paint-outs have produced numerous works of art capturing scenes from many familiar places in the area rays from a sunrise peeking through the pine trees on Cape San Blas, an Eastpoint sherman untangling his lines with his dog asleep at his feet, a family picking shells from St. Joseph Bay these moments will be forever frozen in oils, pastels and watercolors. Through the duration of the event, the artists will set up their easels and paint en plein air, which means open air in French. Coordinated by the Forgotten Coast Cultural Coalition (FCCC), the event features ve exhibits across the coast, daily artist demonstrations, two workshops, art sales and a series of public receptions. As youre driving around, youll see (the artists) set up on the side of the road, said FCCC President Natalie Shoaf. Youll see the painters out on the sidewalks and all over. They love when people stop and come and talk to them about what theyre doing and about Plein Air. This year, the event website will have a map feature to track where the artists are painting each day. You will be able to look at exactly where they are on the website so you dont miss them, Shoaf said. After each day of painting, the artists will bring their fresh works to the Wetroom exhibit, held this year at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art, at 86 Water Street. The art is brought in wet thats why we call it the Wetroom, Shoaf said. It comes in straight from our bayous and our gulf its just fantastic. The Wetroom alone brought in more than 500 patrons from 28 different states last year, with 101 art purchases made. Were so conscious of not having any borders, we ip (the Wetroom) from Franklin to Gulf County, Shoaf said. Everything moves around so it stays uid with the whole Forgotten Coast. We really try and spread out what were doing, so weve got artists staying in peoples houses from Mexico Beach to Carrabelle. The art on display in the Wetroom will be available for viewing from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day of the event. Its organicthings are growing, Shoaf said of the paint-out. Its kind of evolving and helping the arts throughout the Forgotten Coast. Since 2009, the FCCC has also issued local grants to promote the arts. Last years art in culture grant included a $5,000 grant to assist another local nonpro t in establishing itself and working toward purchasing the Port Theater in Port St. Joe. One of the highlights of the event every year is Student Art Day, in which a handful of local students had the chance on Wednesday at the Port St. Joe Marina to work one-on-one with a plein air artist in creating their own plein air painting. Shoaf said to watch the artists working with the students is an amazing experience. Weve got artists who sell their paintings for $3,000 to $5,000 per picture, and theyre taking the time to work with a student one on one, Shoaf said. These kids are given an opportunity that very few are given. Shoaf spent last week at a Plein Air Convention in Las Vegas and was overwhelmed by the positive feedback the event has received from artists across the country. Ive had artists coming up and grabbing other artists saying, youve got to come to this event, Shoaf said. Its because of our community and how we embrace them.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times Last words of goodbye, then death Another good friend is gone, and the richness of our community is diminished at his passing. He came to our small area from up north and bravely made a new home here, while he cared for his beloved wife in her last illness. His career life had been exciting; he had a busy, demanding job in public relations and the political world. But his was a lifestyle which often proved to be a strain to his family unit. He lived and worked in cities and metropolitan areas we only read about in powerful East Coast newspapers. Famous names were peppered through his conversations. He was sophisticated, good-looking, witty and charming. It was fun to meet him and talk with him, hearing about and learning from his experiences. He shared his stories freely, but they were usually told in a helpful effort to encourage the listener to learn from the storytellers own mistakes and misplaced efforts. When he came to our area and time permitted, it was a natural for him to again become involved in politics, even though his party was the one of the minority. But he generously lent his skills and interests to local non-prot organizations, in activism where he was needed, and issues that could benet from the skills he brought. He was unafraid of controversy on both sides. He lent his personal support to many good causes throughout the county. Each were made more successful because of his interest and participation. He always helped to make the best of whichever side he chose. He was generous with his support including his nances. He freely shared his consultations, his vast business, political and world experience, all the while maintaining a keen interest in what was happening within the threads of his adopted home community. He made a difference in his Franklin County world, and in the lives of many of us, just as he had done caring for his late wife during her sad and lengthy decline from Parkinsons disease. His family of three daughters and one son has lost both their mother and father now. They have become the next generation. It is indeed the cycle of life, yet never easy to say Goodbye. They will grieve, as will we all, but all our lives must go on. That is the cycle as it is meant to continue. His presence in their lives, and the lives of his nine grandchildren and one great-grandson, will never be forgotten. We who were privileged to know him in this last chapter will remember him too. He knew his end was near; he felt unable to survive the nal pneumonia that overwhelmed his bodys defenses. But he acknowledged and met that reality with calm and dignity, even though he also added a bit of personal fun to his last day with a nal beverage. One of his most important gifts to his survivors was to speak to each child and grandchild, giving them an individual, special message to remember. And then, he had his oxygen mask removed to better share his nal telephone farewells with close, special friends. In some of his last conscious minutes, each shared a personal and loving Goodbye. Only then, he uttered his very last words to his son. Ive had a wonderful life. Its time. He passed gently from this world into whatever waits for us in the next. Goodbye, Ray Courage. Were glad we knew ye! THOUGHTS FOR THE TIMES Mel Kelly Senator reects on 2012 legislative session I appreciate the trust that has been placed in me by allowing me to serve as your state senator. I cherish and respect our way of life and am truly humbled that you have entrusted this job to me. I will always do my best to be a senator you can be proud of. Part of my job as your senator is to help ensure that bills that may have a negative impact are fully scrutinized and prevented from passing if they are detrimental to the citizens of Florida. The following are examples that some of my colleagues and I helped prevent from passing: Closing Jefferson County Correctional Facility. Thankfully, crime is down in Florida and for that we should all be very grateful. However, the sudden and unanticipated closing of a local prison in a small town can have devastating consequences. We held off this closure for at least a year, but there is no doubt that this ght will return again in 2013. Privatizing Prisons. I believe it is bad public policy to entrust public safety to the lowest bidder. I also believe that turning over many of our states prisons to private companies would hurt the workers in those facilities. Thankfully, we defeated in very close vote a measure that would have privatized 30 south Florida prisons and would have also created massive worker displacement of local correctional ofcers in North Florida. This would have hurt local jobs and local families. Allowing private companies to shut down/take over our public schools. Mislabeled as the so-called, parent trigger bill, this measure would have allowed private companies to come in and lobby parents to take over not x a troubled school. This was not true parent empowerment and could have caused the shut down or privatization of many of our local public schools. More harm to state public employees. The past few years have been very tough on state employees. This year, we fought hard to make sure that the legislature did not cut salaries, benets or pensions and I am thankful we were able to kill those bad ideas. Unfortunately, we were unable to stop what I believe is an unconstitutional invasion of privacy with the requirement that all state employees be subject to expensive random drug tests. However, through the combined efforts of a lot of people we were able to make some signicant accomplishments. Some of them are: A balanced approach to septic tanks. In 2010, the legislature passed an overreaching program related to septic tank regulations that unfairly hit rural communities the hardest. This year, we were able to repeal that law and replace it with a more balanced and more sensible approach that protects precious water sources while scaling back the unnecessary and expensive evaluations and repairs. Additionally, we put more power into the hands of local communities to allow for more local control of the implementation of septic tank assessment programs. Education Accountability. I sponsored and we passed a bill to improve Floridas educational accountability standards that clears up conicts with the federal government. Such conicts could have cost our state millions of dollars for our schools. More money for our schools. While I opposed many of the cuts to badly needed programs, I am pleased our state added back $1 billion in money for public schools. While these cuts only help repair some of many years of setbacks, I want to commend my legislative colleagues for recognizing that public schools cannot continue cutting educational programs at the expense of our children and I hope this trend will continue for many years to come. Rural Economic development. Our Big Bend will be a major part of this effort, which will benet the hardworking people and their families throughout North Florida. Redistricting. As required by the Florida Constitution, we passed maps for Senate, House and Congressional Districts. I am very disappointed that Jackson County will not be a part of our district, but look forward to working with Sen. Gaetz to make sure we take care of North Florida. The people of Jackson County have always been a vital part of our district. We are fortunate to have all of Leon, Jefferson and Madison counties added to our district, as well as all of Taylor and Hamilton counties. In closing, I thank those who contacted me to share their concerns and ideas as to how I can be of greater service to the citizens. I value every contact and am grateful that so many of you care enough about our state and to have your voice heard. I am especially grateful to those community leaders who spent many hours working the halls to help us pass good bills for North Florida. I value and appreciate your condence in me. I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and if I can ever be of service please call me at 487-5004. Sincerely, Bill Montford SEN. BILL MONTFORD Special to the Times Attorney General Pam Bondi invites the public to make suggestions on how best to distribute approximately $300 million recovered on behalf of Floridas consumers in the national mortgage servicing settlement. From now through Monday, May 14, at 5 p.m., the public may submit suggestions to the Attorney Generals Ofce by visiting MyFloridaLegal.com. Florida is one of the hardest hit states in the country in terms of foreclosures, and Id like to hear from Floridians about ways we can help homeowners and offset the devastation caused by the foreclosure crisis, Bondi said. In the next several weeks, Bondi will be evaluating input from the public, interested stakeholders and representatives of the Governors Ofce and the Legislature before distributing settlement funds. In February 2012, Bondi entered a $25 billion joint federal-state agreement with the nations ve largest mortgage servicers over foreclosure abuses and unacceptable nationwide mortgage servicing practices. The court-approved settlement calls for the Attorney General to direct approximately $300 million in consumer relief for purposes intended to avoid preventable foreclosures, to ameliorate the effects of the foreclosure crisis, and to enhance law enforcement efforts against nancial fraud. The settlement agreement lists permissible uses of the settlement funds, including: housing counselors, state and local foreclosure assistance hotlines, state and local foreclosure mediation programs, legal assistance, housing remediation and anti-blight projects, and training and stafng of nancial fraud or consumer protection enforcement efforts. More information regarding the uses of these settlement funds can be found under Exhibit B of the nal settlement agreement at MyFloridaLegal.com. Special to the Times A new rider inserted into the House Energy and water Appropriations Bill this week could have negative impacts on streams and wetlands all across the country, harming efforts to protect water quality and degrading angling opportunity in waters treasured by all Americans. This rider is an ill-conceived attack on the Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency that goes after the helpful efforts of these agencies to clarify Clean Water Act protections for streams and wetlands, said Steve Moyer, vice president for government affairs at Trout Unlimited. This is the third year in a row the House Appropriations Committee has added harmful provisions to this bill. In the past, these riders have been beaten back. They need to be beaten back again. Specically, the riders would bar the Corps from nalizing and implementing science-based Clean Water Act guidance. Sportsmen across the country support the efforts on the part of the Corps and the EPA to implement the guidance, because angling and hunting depend so much on clean water. When wetlands are drained, and clean water is polluted, sh and game struggle, and sportsmen and women feel the impacts. Last summer, the Corps and the EPA received more than 200,000 comments on the need for guidance implementation. The vast majority supported the guidance, including more than 250 sportsmen and conservation organizations and the administrations of 28 states. The guidance includes existing exemptions for agricultural activity and provides vital clarity to landowners, developers and state and federal agencies that often work near irreplaceable water resources. Rather than making it easier to pollute and foul our countrys water resources, Congress ought to be insisting that this clarity be put in place so the Clean Water Act can be as effective as possible, Moyer said. Were talking water here. Its the lifeblood of our country, and we must treat is as such. Trout Unlimited is a private, non-prot organization with more than 140,000 members dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring North Americas trout and salmon sheries and their watersheds. House rider puts Americas waters at risk Public input sought on settlement funds Special to the Times A new report from the Institute of Medicine is calling for dramatic action on the part of governments, the food and health care industries, and schools to help curb obesity. The IOM report recommends reducing the consumption of sugary drinks, something long urged by the nonprot Center for Science in the Public Interest. The IOM report provides an excellent blueprint for solving Americas costly obesity problem. But policy makers will have to invest both money and political capital to convert the advice into reality, said Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Congress should fund a multibillion-dollar, multi-year anti-obesity program that includes national and local community and socialmarketing campaigns. That program could be funded with a signicant tax on sugary beverages. The SNAP (food stamp) program should be improved by testing the effectiveness of excluding purchases of sugary beverages and providing a bonus for fruits and vegetables. This country has shown that it can solve almost any problem when we come together and make it a priority as we have to cut smoking rates in half, said CSPI nutrition policy director Margo Wootan. With two-thirds of Americans affected by pre-obesity and obesity, this is clearly a societal problem that requires action by individuals, families, schools, health ofcials and professionals, governments, and industry. CSPI called on the Obama administration to nalize strong menulabeling rules which cover all foods at chains, including alcoholic beverages, prepared foods in supermarkets, and snacks at movie theaters. Its unconscionable that we are still doing so little to help the two-thirds of Americans who are at risk of costly and debilitating obesity-related problems like heart attack, stroke, amputations, blindness, and cancer. Wootan said. Science group wants for tax on sugary drinks

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, May 10, 2012 to 8 qualifying period. In the event that only Democrats le for this ofce or any of the county of ces, Republicans and those without party af liation would be able to vote in any race that has candidates from only one political party, known as a universal race. The following is a statement issued by the candidate: I, Noah Lockley, Democrat, have led paperwork for re-election as county commissioner, District 3. I have held this of ce for the past eight years, having been elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2008 without opposition. As a county commissioner, I have a responsibility of carrying on county government as it pertains to providing and maintaining county buildings, providing hospitals and ambulance service, providing parks, recreation areas, libraries and museums, providing waste and sewage collection and disposal, providing and maintaining roads and bridges, and establishing and enforcing zoning regulations. I have strived to meet all the obligations of the of ce and will continue to do so. I have been available to all the citizens of Franklin County in my endeavor to meet the duties of the commission and to assist my constituents. I have been active in continued improvements to Weems Hospital and supported our local health department too because of the need for quality health care in our rural area. I have attended many hospital board meetings. I have been instrumental in getting roads in my district and throughout the county paved. Road paving was one of my focuses early on, and I worked with the budget over a period of time to build a fund for that purpose without having to borrow any money. Our roads are safer and more accessible. I worked hard towards getting the sidewalk project completed in my district because I saw the need for this project which also provides a safer option for travel by foot or bicycle, especially for our children. I have worked diligently with the people in my district through the Workforce Center and believe obtaining jobs for our people is a priority. There are some ongoing projects at our airport, and I continually insist local people be provided job opportunities. I have always pushed for local bid preference on all county projects when possible. I believe in local control. I have pushed for affordable housing options and will continue to do so as the economy improves and housing developments emerge. I know we need to make sure our young adults will be given an opportunity to stay here in the county and afford to do so. I played an active role during the Deep Water Horizon (BP) oil spill to make sure the Apalachicola Bay and our seafood was protected and to ensure that every person or business who was entitled to a claim received the same. I have endeavored to look out for the best interest of our citizens and our county employees. I have supported the increase of services to the public as requested when possible. I have been very accessible to the people in my district. I attend Florida Association of Counties conferences which have afforded me an opportunity in county education as well as providing me the opportunity to meet other county commissioners who lend knowledge to me based on their experiences. I participate in activities within my community, I am married to Georgia Lockley, and our grown children live and work in Franklin County. I seek re-election to continue to provide for the needs of the people in District 3. I appreciate the trust I have received, and I will continue to be a commissioner for the people.

Shields brie y explained how fossil shell is used to renew oyster bars and said the process is in practice from Pensacola to Apalachicola Bay. He said he believed Crowder intended to transport the shells from Liberty County for use in other states. Who doesnt like raw oysters? Mayor Curley Messer said. They are talking about using ancient oyster shells to rebuild the bars. But waterfront residents expressed fear noise and pollution would be generated as well as jobs. Glen MacMurray, who owns a townhouse adjacent to the proposed project, objected. This thing theyre proposing is going against what youve got here, he said. I bring my family and friends spend a lot of money. Youre going to bring dump trucks and barges into the middle of this beautiful city. I truly believe it will damage the economy here in Carrabelle. His remarks drew spirited applause from about a third of the audience. Hartman warned the commission to be very careful about blessing industrial activity on the waterfront, adding that industrial activity was allowed on Timber Island. Gathana Parmenas, a former city commissioner, disagreed, describing the transportation and storage of shell as heavy industry, disallowed both downtown and on Timber Island. This isnt just a zoning issue, she said. It would require a comp plan amendment. Only light industrial (use) is allowed. Mining is heavy industrial. Another audience member argued for the shell transport scheme. Hes going after a permit to transport, not for mining. When I heard you clapping, I had to think none of you has children or grandchildren here that they want to stay here, the man said. What theyre trying to do is make opportunity for Carrabelle. His remarks drew as much applause as MacMurrays. David Butler, head of Carrabelles Economic Development Council, said he supported parts of Crowders plan. I would like to see the space become commercial waterfront again, Butler said. Hallelujah! Thats what we need for our culture and our heritage. He agreed that industrial activity downtown would add even more complications. Butler noted there was bound to be pushback from residential landowners if commercial activity on the waterfront increased. Its kind of like moving next to the airport and complaining about the noise, Butler said. Commissioner Cal Allen offered support for Crowders plan. I have no problem for using this for oyster restoration, he said. It would tickle me if you would bring in shing boats and put a seafood processing plant there. He also agreed zoning would be an issue if shell transport was proposed. Allen moved the commission request the Corps hold a public hearing on Crowders proposal but the motion failed, with Charlotte Schneider, Frank Mathes and Messer opposed. Mathes then moved the city support Crowders request to remove his pilings. That measure passed 3 with La Paz and Allen opposed. Schneider made it clear she supported only the removal of the pilings. I wont ght about pulling the pilings out. When it comes to changing the comp plan, thats different, she said. Even with city support to remove the pilings, and to pursue licensing for the change to the docks, Crowder acknowledged Tuesday that industrial use of the harbor would pose problems. In a prepared statement to the Times, a company spokesperson wrote that Jimmie Crowder was disappointed to learn that the transporting of the oyster shells from C-Quarters Marina was not an allowable use of the property. As a longtime supporter, land and business owner of Carrabelle, Mr. Crowder had hoped that this venture would bring additional jobs and revenue to the community. He remains committed to helping the community. CROWDER from page A1 .Youre going to bring dump trucks and barges into the middle of this beautiful city.

Planned to coincide with the annual Historic Apalachicola Home and Garden Tour this weekend, the exhibit will be on display through May 31. While there will be no opening party, a soiree is planned for Tuesday, May 15. Many of the early works to be displayed are portraits. Smith-Willow said he also painted timely subjects in the early years, including the Vietnam War and early space exploration. In addition to a collection of paintings, Smith-Willow will display photographs of his other works. A lot of things I have painted are gone now, particularly the waterfront stuff prior to (Hurricane) Dennis, he said. The paintings feature local scenes with one wall devoted to seafood workers. There also are scenes from SmithWillows travels in Italy, Mexico and Costa Rica. Many of his early works are portraits including that of a spritely Tennessee whittler. SmithWillow said he sought the man out to observe his technique. The whittler began each piece with a small chain saw and to display his expertise with the saw, the folk artist used it to peel an apple mounted on a stick, while Smith-Willow watched. You will recognize some local faces in the exhibit and if you look carefully, you may pick up on some underlying themes. This exhibit is a mustsee for local art lovers as well as visitors to the area. Dont miss this opportunity to observe the evolution of a major talent over half a century.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com O UTDOORS www.apalachtimes.com Section Section A amberjack plus an occasional dolphin and sail, as well as inshore staples of trout and red sh all are doing their thing all at once. So many sh, so little time. The great thing about an everything bite is that you can start the morning inshore, enjoy bringing in some fat specks and brawny reds, maybe even a few blues though they are more a cool-weather sh, plus Spanish and a nowand-then pompano and when your crew has had all of that fun they can stand, head out the nearest pass for the beaches and the nearshore reefs. Close to the beach youll nd the mother lodes of Spanish, lots of kings from schoolies to giant smokers, the lingering ling and more pompano. Move a bit farther out and you will nd plenty of broad-shouldered amberjacks, red grouper and assorted other bottom sh. But not gags they are closed in the western Panhandle until July 1, and not red snapper, which open May 31 statewide, and yes, you do need to have www. myfwc.com as one of the quick links on your smartphone because these rules are hard to keep up with. And, though bluewater time here is generally considered to be late June and on through mid-September, anytime a weedline shows up within 10 miles of the beach this month, youd be wise to pull a rigged hoo or ying sh around it because both dolphin and sails have been caught already this year. Its probably too early to risk the jumbo fuel bill required for a 200-mile roundtrip to DeSoto Canyon where anything from blue marlin to wahoo to yellow ns will soon be on tap, but if youre jonesing for an early blue water x, keep an eye out for those weeds, likely to show inshore anytime there is a sustained southerly wind. INSHORE ACTION Trout and reds are pretty much a gimme this month from Apalach to Pensacola Bay, including St. Joe Bay, St. Andrew Bays West Bay, North Bay and East Bay and of course the sprawl of Choctawhatchee Bay. It used to be knowing where to sh on these big bays took years of trial-anderror experience, but these days its become a lot simpler just click up Google Earth on your web-browser and zoom in on the shorelines of any of the above bays. Most of the shoreline ats are white sand, but select areas show the dark, irregular shape of aquatic weeds. Weeds hold shrimp, crabs and bait sh, and those attract game sh. Find an area where the grass has something extra, such as a channel cut through it, the in ow of a creek, a point, a rock pile or a dock, and you have a location highly likely to produce. All these locations are clearly visible on the overhead view provided by Google Earth, and a latitude/longitude readout follows your cursor so that you can program these locations exactly into your GPS, allowing you to nd them even at dawn or dusk. High-end GPS units these days have the aerial view built right in to the program, so you can go directly to them and scout out and mark new spots while youre on the water. Live shrimp are the easiest bait to obtain, and shed under a popping cork over good grass they pretty much assure a few sh for the skillet. However, pin sh and other bait stealers can drive you crazy with the shrimp most guides, looking for larger sh, make use of live pigsh, pin sh, thread ns or other baits. Some baitshops sell them, but you may have to resort to a shrimpbaited trap in the shallows to get shable quantities consistently on pig sh and pins, or to being handy with a castnet for the thread ns, aka greenbacks. If you dont want to go to the trouble, make use of a quarter-ounce jig or swimbait, a suspending baitfish imitation like the Mirr-O-Dine, a DOA plastic shrimp or early and late a noisy topwater plug like a Super Spook or Gunfish. You wont usually catch as many fish with artificials, but the ones you do catch are often larger and you spend more time casting and less rounding up bait and rebaiting the hook. Large trout will be found in the shallows throughout May and June they most often spawn around the new and full moon on channel edges at night according to FWC biologists, and these fish then cruise the nearest grassy shallows as the sun rises sometimes into water barely a foot deep. Red sh also prowl the shallows, often in water so shallow its possible to see their tails and backs. Sight casting to these sh with avored baits like a Berkley Gulp crab is an effective tactic put it ahead of them and let them swim up to it. The venerable Johnson Silver Minnow, a weedless spoon, is another good red sh offering, as are various topwaters and snagless jerkbaits like the Yum Money Minnow.

We have the cobia season, the mackerel season, the king sh season, the pompano season, the blue water bill sh season and tarpon time.

Freshwater King sh and Spanish Mackerel can be found on the buoys out of Mexico Beach right now. Large amounts of herring and hard tails are in this area, so watch for the birds and you should nd sh. Vermillion snapper and large amber jacks are being caught on the bridge rubble sights and around the 18-mile bridge as well. Inshore Offshore Good amounts of slot sized red sh are hanging around near Towns Beach and close to the Presnells channels. Nice sized trout can be found this week around the deeper holes and channels south of Blacks Island. Live shrimp under a pooping cork should prove deadly for these sh! Lake Wimico has produced a lot of bass lately and that should hold out again this week. Most anglers are using spinner baits and topwater baits at rst light. Depot creek has had great reports of bream and cat sh this week. SPONSORED BY KING MACKEREL Thursday, May 10, 2012 Page 8 But this year, the rapid warm-up and 76-degree water stretching throughout the area a month early mean May is going to be everything season. Top anglers and guides are reporting cobia, Spanish, kings, pompano and, yes, even early tarpon plus offshore sh such as black n tuna and PASSES AND NEARSHORE Spanish swarm around places like Destin Pass and St. Andrews, picking off the vast schools of bait that work in and out with the tides. You can clearly see the channel edges on the Google Earth overhead views; set up on these locations inside on incoming, outside on outgoing hang a bag of frozen chopped bait off the transom, and let the sh come to you. A live threadn free-lined in the slick is unbeatable. Or, you can cowboy them early in the day, motoring up to breaking schools and tossing a small spoon, lipless crankbait or other fast-moving and tooth-resistant lure to the white water. Youll often catch Spanish on one cast and blues on another with this tactic, and on the outside bonito add to the excitement. Live bait will also draw the occasional king sh and there still are a few cobia migrating past. There are numerous reefs within the major bays, as well, and these draw both Spanish and bottom sh including mangrove snapper, grouper and sheepshead.

CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA SP O RTS www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, May 10, 2011 A Page 9 Section drove left of the center line and struck the left front of Segrees vehicle. The impact of the crash caused the truck to overturn before coming to rest upright on the north shoulder, according to the report. Moses, who was not wearing his seat belt, was transported to Bay Medical Center with serious injuries. A passenger in the Kia, Sabrina L. Hicks, 37, of Eastpoint, was taken to Weems Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. Both individuals were recovering as of press time. Both Hicks and Segree, who were returning from Wednesday evening services at the First Pentecostal Holiness Church, had been wearing their seatbelts, said the report. The report said alcohol was not a factor in the crash and that charges are pending. WRECK from page A1 Ruic removed several light xtures that he insisted were his, but are arguably owned by the county, his landlord, which had offset a portion of his rent in exchange for the long-term improvements. There were no major incidents, but it did not go smoothly, said Ted Mosteller, airport manager and chairman of the airport advisory committee. Mosteller said the county has asked that inmate crews begin the process of preparing the airport property for a new tenant. In their discussions last week, the commissioners nixed a proposal by Van Der Linden for the county to pay all costs to put the facility back in a condition that is standard within the industry and comparable to other similarly situated airports. Shuler said that would be going beyond the usual responsibility of a landlord. I dont think we should have that obligation, he said. We make it broom clean and he takes it as is. The attorney also cautioned the commissioners that Fly High should be given latitude to do what needs to be done in the future. We should not get into the business of micromanaging the tenant, Shuler said. Commissioner Smokey Parrish insisted Fly High maintain strict records on how frequently they change the lter at the fuel farm, and share that information with the airport board. Commissioner Noah Lockley asked for, and received, a requirement that Fly High has 30 days after signing a deal to have an aircraft maintenance service in place, much less time than the six months that Van Der Linden sought. Shuler stressed that the county has responsibility for major repairs, provided thay are not as a result of the tenants negligence. If he breaks it, he xes it, he said. Hes going to have to undertake minimal repair obligations. I have had tenants who will call the landlord incessantly every time theres a leaky faucet. Mosteller told commissioners the airport was undergoing a rehab project, using grant money for some of the repair work to the roof and air conditioning system. But otherwise were paying out of the kitty, he said. Parrish was wary of why Van Der Linden was making his request. That tells me he doesnt think the buildings up to standard, he said. What is he referring to? I am wondering if he knows something we dont know. Alan Pierce, county director of administrative services, said van der Linden told him his major concern was for carpet cleaning, and possible ea eradication due to Ruics pets. Both matters would fall under a county obligation. On Shulers recommendation, the commissioners also declined to conduct a Phase I and Phase II environmental baseline study on the leased premises and fuel storage site, as Van der Linden requested. My view is we do not undertake this at this late stage, Shuler said. This will entail additional weeks of study to do that. The commissioners agreed to several speci cs to the lease, mainly to set accepted industry standards as the basis for obligations of the two parties. They noted that the county carries its own insurance on the property, which it owns, and are asking Van Der Linden to carry his own general liability and hangar insurance, and recommended he insure his personal belongings. The county dismissed a request by van der Linden for a years free rent, based on his contention that Ruics sudden departure had left him with the repercussions of an airport closure. I told him free rent was out of the question, chairman Pinki Jackel said. Jackel advocated for the decision to allow him to pay rent quarterly. That would give him the ability to come in and do what he needs to do, she said. It gives him a chance to catch his breath. Were still going to collect the rent and if we dont collect the rent hes in default. Still, the matter concerned Chuck Marks, a member of the airport board. If hes that cash strapped, were in trouble to begin with, he said. Fly Highs challenges are many if they choose to ink a deal, as only about half of the aircraft T-hangars, which rent for between about $200 and $350 a month, are now under lease. In addition, the current state of the airport, in which it is on par with St. George Island and Dog Island in terms of lacking any facilities such as fuel and rest rooms, has taken a short-term toll. There are very big negatives right now but its not the death of the airport at all, he said. Theres no reason because of this for it to die. We may lose some (pilots) permanently, they may come in here and may decide to go somewhere else, Mosteller said. But two to three months down the road the customers will come back. Under new management, theyll come back out. AIRPORT from page A1 By PAT HALE Special to the Times The 13th annual Boy Scout Youth Regatta fundraiser was the place to be Saturday, May 5. There was more food, fun and fellowship on St. George Island than anywhere else on the Forgotten Coast. Sixteen competitors vied for honors on eight Hobie Cat sailboats. Each year, Scout Troop 22 offers a guest expert program on the Friday prior to the race to re ne the skills of those competing. This year, scouts were lucky to host the world-renowned Hobie Cat sailor Tom Korzenewski from Syracuse, N.Y. The legendary Korzenewski has won races all over the globe for the past 30 years. Troop 22 welcomed him and said they felt lucky to have him here for this years regatta. The scouts learned a lot and said they were grateful for his coaching expertise. Korzenewski also acted as an of cial during the race. Troop leaders Pat and Larry Hale also want to thank the St. George Island Yacht Club Commodore and Coach David Walker, who took extra time to help them out around the camp and water. Special thanks to cooking team Kevin Delahanty, Big Dan Dush, Connie Carver and Dave and Ronnie Wallace. They prepared a wonderful barbeque lunch and also the tastiest low-country boil in the entire Southeast. The scouts also wish to thank Journeys of St. George Island for the use of their pontoon boat, which served as committee boat and thanks to Dave Armentrout for skippering the boat. Many wonderful people from the community donated money, time and support to the scouting program. For this the scouts said they are truly grateful. If you believe in the Boy Scouts of America and the Venturing Crew (girls in Boy Scouting), its always a good time to donate to a local troop and crew. Its tax deductible.

Carrabelle grants 20-year lease on gym At the May 3 Carrabelle city meeting, City Attorney Dan Hartman read a request from a group headed by Beth Millender, that a proposed lease on the gymnasium at Carrabelle Municipal Center be extended to 20 years with a review every ve years. At the city commissions April 5 meeting, Millender said her group, Millenders group, a forpro t entity, plans to create a recreation center for Carrabelles youth in the building. On Thursday, the commission was informed that Millender and her associates are now represented by Homer McMillan of Compass Law. Neither McMillan nor Millender was present at the May 3 meeting. Millender has been granted permission to rent the building for $5 per month. She is responsible for paying all utilities. Millenders group also requested that a $1,000 deposit be waived in exchange for the cost of repairing existing air conditioners. Mayor Curley Messer expressed strong support for Millender and her plan. Commissioner Brenda La Paz asked that the lease specify that rent on the building be reviewed at the end of the rst ve years. The commission voted unanimously to grant the 20-year lease with a review of the rent after ve years. Carrabelle water customer seeks aid At Carrabelles May 3 meeting, Garry Sheward requested a reduction in his water bill for his home on Collins/Pine in Lanark Village. Sheward told the commission he was billed for 68,390 gallons of water on his May bill, which re ects water consumption in April. The charge for the month was $768. He said that, for the last three years, during to months of March through May, he used an average of about 60 gallons per month and his total water consumption over the last ve years was only 55,000 gallons. Sheward said he resides in his Franklin County home only on weekends and he knows of no unusual water use during April except for overnight leaks in a water hose and an icemaker. Sheward has now placed a lock on the meter and it seems to be operating properly, he said. Brenda La Paz, water commissioner said the city would rebate his $143 sewer fee because there was no reason to believe the lost water had been passed through the sewer system. City Administrator Courtney Millender said it is not uncommon for the city to rebate sewer fees on unusually high bills but does not normally reduce water bills. City Clerk Keisha Smith said customers contesting a bill can have their meter sent away for calibration but, if the meter is not in error the customer is responsible for the calibration fee. She said Sheward can arrange to make payments on the bill over time at city hall. Highlight of the April 9 Delta Kappa Chapter meeting of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, at the Franklin County School media center, was the installation of the 2012-14 chapter of cers.

On Monday, Derek Adkins, project manager for the Army Corps of Engineers, said Crowder spokesman Odie Lazlo telephoned him Friday to make changes to his proposed project. Crowder initially planned to remove recreational boat slips and re t the waterfront for use by barges to store and transport shell mined in Liberty County. Crowders move came a day after Carrabelle city commissioners voted 3-2 to support Crowders plan to remove the pilings for 35 of 41 boat slips from C-Quarters. Crowder now plans to use the space to accommodate larger commercial vessels for loading and unloading seafood. Adkins said the Corps will issue a notice of the revised permit request after which the public will then have an additional 30 days to comment. Crowder spokesman Odie Lazlo presented Crowders original plan before the city commission March 3 before a standing room only audience of more than 100 people. County Attorney Dan Hartman said both the corps and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, who have jurisdiction over permitting, had received much input on the plan, with Crowder seeking city support for the change. Commissioner Brenda La Paz said both regulatory agencies have had overwhelming interest from stakeholders. Lazlo was accompanied by Joe Shields, environmental administrator for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Aquaculture. (CQuarters) has not made a dime 1 dead in wreck on Gorrie BridgeBy DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com A head-on collision May 2 on the Gorrie Bridge took the life of an Eastpoint woman and sent two other people to the hospital with serious injuries. Vicky Harris Segree, 54, was killed when the 2005 Kia Sedona she was driving eastbound on U.S. 98 toward Eastpoint, on the Gorrie Bridge about 1.7 miles west of Bay Shore Drive, was struck by a 1997 Toyota pickup truck driven by Chandler B. Moses, 19, of Apalachicola. According to a report by Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Aaron Stephens, Moses was heading westbound towards Apalachicola about 9:20 p.m. when he By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com County commissioners set a deadline last week for striking a deal with the proposed xed base operator of the Apalachicola Regional Airport, making 5 p.m. Wednesday the mandatory time of arrival for a lease agreement. At a special meeting Thursday, held jointly with members of the airport advisory board, county commissioners voted unanimously to a series of tweaks to the language of a proposed ve-year deal with Fly High, of Lexington, NC. The basic terms of the deal with Fly High, and its president, Karel Van Der Linden, remain the same: a $1,500 monthly rent on the facility, a 10 percent cut of the fees for tying-down an aircraft on the tarmac, and an eight-cent fee for every gallon of fuel sold. The commissioners, with Cheryl Sanders absent due to knee surgery, spent much of the meeting addressing a series of changes Van Der Linden had proposed to County Attorney Michael Shuler, and for the most part, the commissioners were on the same page as the airport board. They agree to allow Van Der Linden to pay rent quarterly, as opposed to monthly, for the rst year of the deal, to give him some breathing room as he assumes control over a facility long under the direction of Bill Ruic, and his company, Apalachicola international Airport Center. Ruics departure this weekend was not without tension, after the long-time xed base operator had shut down the fuel farm and disconnected the telephone in advance of his leaving. In addition, County sets airport lease deadline NOAH LOCKLEYSee WRECK A9 See AIRPORT A9 See LOCKLEY A5 See CROWDER A5 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Chestnut Street Cemetery in Apalachicola was the scene Saturday night of much mystery and enlightenment as the Apalachicola Area Historical Society once again put on a successful Ghost Walk. Held just before the full moon glowed overhead against a night sky, the event drew several hundred people, and signed up several new members to the society. Taking part in portraying the lives of several colorful personalities interred in the cemetery were: Katherine Anne Shimonis, as her grandmother Anna Buzzett Fry Annette Fagan, as pioneering black innkeeper Mary Fuller Eric Springer, as reputed outlaw John Younger (in photo at lower right) Caty Greene as murderess Marie Hickey Sallie Crown as the outspoken Lizzie Hoffman (in photo at top) Gene Smith as Dr. Alvan Chapman John Inzetta as Dr. John Gorrie Melonie Inzetta as seafood proprietor Louisa Messina (in photo at right) Livia Monod as Messinas granddaughter, who drowned tragically (In photo at right) Tiffany Tif n, as Messinas daughter Stacie DeVaughn as the amboyant Olive Ruge Rusmisel Mike Kinnett as Thomas Orman Judy Lofton as the mysterious Lizzie Cooper I think everyone who took the tour enjoyed it except for two pre-teen boys who were expecting more of a spectral experience, said Mark Curenton, who helped organize the walk. Evidently they had been watching ghost hunters on television and were expecting the tour guides to have ghost meters to measure disturbances in the aura. Other than those two, I did not hear anything except good comments from people as they were leaving the cemetery.Weems sells pork butts FridayIn honor of our local hospital during National Hospital Week, the Weems Healthcare Foundation is selling award winning smoked/ grilled whole pork butts for $25.

LocalA2 | The Times Thursday, May 10, 2012By Lois Swoboda653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com State Rep. Leonard Bembry addressed the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Congress at their May 2 luncheon at the Blue Parrot Ocean Front Caf on St. George Island. Bembry, widely considered among the most conservative Democrats in Floridas legislature, has announced his candidacy for Floridas 2nd Congressional seat. He is being challenged by Tallahassee Democrat Al Lawson for the right to take on Panama City Republican Steve Southerland. At the luncheon, he told chamber members he is a farmer from North Florida whose family has roots in the Panhandle dating back to 1851. I have nine grandchildren, he said. Thats nine good reasons to be concerned with the future of Florida. I was a farmer and businessman for almost 40 years before I decided that it was my responsibility to pursue public service, he said. I am grounded in North Florida because its always been my home. Bembry spoke of many difficult decisions the Florida House has been called upon to make during his four years in office, citing redistricting, the bids to privatize schools and prisons, and of course budget deficits. He said he hoped recent fiscal constraints will encourage Florida legislators to, Go forward with a little more responsiveness to the dollars we spend. After he took office and began to serve, Bembry said he realized he, had no idea how what we (state legislatures) do affects the lives of the people. He said his decisions became very personal to him, after that realization. I began to consider how decisions made in Tallahassee will look in Apalachicola and Carrabelle, he said. He called the children our most precious resource and spoke of seeking ways to provide them with jobs in the future. He said the Florida economy, though embattled, was resilient. What we lose in agriculture, we gain back in tourism, Bembry said. He also spoke of the great value of natural resources and called their stewardship a sacred trust. Bembry bemoaned the fact that county health departments are under re. Our biggest problem in the small rural counties is direct delivery of health services, he said. Funding of health departments will be an issue going forward. He also criticized budget cuts to county clerks of court last year. BAYVIEW HOME ST.

Through open-air painting, artists freeze time using their paints and brushes, aiming to capture speci c moments like the lull in the sky before an afternoon storm, the measure of light just before the sun sinks below the horizon or a perfectly jagged lightning strike over the bay. The Forgotten Coast is hosting 21 artists from across the country as they set out to capture the atmosphere of Old Florida on canvas. The seventh annual Floridas Forgotten Coast Plein Air Invitational began May 3 and runs through Sunday, with events scheduled from Carrabelle to Mexico Beach. Artists from previous paint-outs have produced numerous works of art capturing scenes from many familiar places in the area rays from a sunrise peeking through the pine trees on Cape San Blas, an Eastpoint sherman untangling his lines with his dog asleep at his feet, a family picking shells from St. Joseph Bay these moments will be forever frozen in oils, pastels and watercolors. Through the duration of the event, the artists will set up their easels and paint en plein air, which means open air in French. Coordinated by the Forgotten Coast Cultural Coalition (FCCC), the event features ve exhibits across the coast, daily artist demonstrations, two workshops, art sales and a series of public receptions. As youre driving around, youll see (the artists) set up on the side of the road, said FCCC President Natalie Shoaf. Youll see the painters out on the sidewalks and all over. They love when people stop and come and talk to them about what theyre doing and about Plein Air. This year, the event website will have a map feature to track where the artists are painting each day. You will be able to look at exactly where they are on the website so you dont miss them, Shoaf said. After each day of painting, the artists will bring their fresh works to the Wetroom exhibit, held this year at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art, at 86 Water Street. The art is brought in wet thats why we call it the Wetroom, Shoaf said. It comes in straight from our bayous and our gulf its just fantastic. The Wetroom alone brought in more than 500 patrons from 28 different states last year, with 101 art purchases made. Were so conscious of not having any borders, we ip (the Wetroom) from Franklin to Gulf County, Shoaf said. Everything moves around so it stays uid with the whole Forgotten Coast. We really try and spread out what were doing, so weve got artists staying in peoples houses from Mexico Beach to Carrabelle. The art on display in the Wetroom will be available for viewing from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day of the event. Its organicthings are growing, Shoaf said of the paint-out. Its kind of evolving and helping the arts throughout the Forgotten Coast. Since 2009, the FCCC has also issued local grants to promote the arts. Last years art in culture grant included a $5,000 grant to assist another local nonpro t in establishing itself and working toward purchasing the Port Theater in Port St. Joe. One of the highlights of the event every year is Student Art Day, in which a handful of local students had the chance on Wednesday at the Port St. Joe Marina to work one-on-one with a plein air artist in creating their own plein air painting. Shoaf said to watch the artists working with the students is an amazing experience. Weve got artists who sell their paintings for $3,000 to $5,000 per picture, and theyre taking the time to work with a student one on one, Shoaf said. These kids are given an opportunity that very few are given. Shoaf spent last week at a Plein Air Convention in Las Vegas and was overwhelmed by the positive feedback the event has received from artists across the country. Ive had artists coming up and grabbing other artists saying, youve got to come to this event, Shoaf said. Its because of our community and how we embrace them.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola TimesLast words of goodbye, then deathAnother good friend is gone, and the richness of our community is diminished at his passing. He came to our small area from up north and bravely made a new home here, while he cared for his beloved wife in her last illness. His career life had been exciting; he had a busy, demanding job in public relations and the political world. But his was a lifestyle which often proved to be a strain to his family unit. He lived and worked in cities and metropolitan areas we only read about in powerful East Coast newspapers. Famous names were peppered through his conversations. He was sophisticated, good-looking, witty and charming. It was fun to meet him and talk with him, hearing about and learning from his experiences. He shared his stories freely, but they were usually told in a helpful effort to encourage the listener to learn from the storytellers own mistakes and misplaced efforts. When he came to our area and time permitted, it was a natural for him to again become involved in politics, even though his party was the one of the minority. But he generously lent his skills and interests to local non-prot organizations, in activism where he was needed, and issues that could benet from the skills he brought. He was unafraid of controversy on both sides. He lent his personal support to many good causes throughout the county. Each were made more successful because of his interest and participation. He always helped to make the best of whichever side he chose. He was generous with his support including his nances. He freely shared his consultations, his vast business, political and world experience, all the while maintaining a keen interest in what was happening within the threads of his adopted home community. He made a difference in his Franklin County world, and in the lives of many of us, just as he had done caring for his late wife during her sad and lengthy decline from Parkinsons disease. His family of three daughters and one son has lost both their mother and father now. They have become the next generation. It is indeed the cycle of life, yet never easy to say Goodbye. They will grieve, as will we all, but all our lives must go on. That is the cycle as it is meant to continue. His presence in their lives, and the lives of his nine grandchildren and one great-grandson, will never be forgotten. We who were privileged to know him in this last chapter will remember him too. He knew his end was near; he felt unable to survive the nal pneumonia that overwhelmed his bodys defenses. But he acknowledged and met that reality with calm and dignity, even though he also added a bit of personal fun to his last day with a nal beverage. One of his most important gifts to his survivors was to speak to each child and grandchild, giving them an individual, special message to remember. And then, he had his oxygen mask removed to better share his nal telephone farewells with close, special friends. In some of his last conscious minutes, each shared a personal and loving Goodbye. Only then, he uttered his very last words to his son. Ive had a wonderful life. Its time. He passed gently from this world into whatever waits for us in the next. Goodbye, Ray Courage. Were glad we knew ye! THOUGHtTS FOR tTHE TIMESMel Kelly Senator reects on 2012 legislative sessionI appreciate the trust that has been placed in me by allowing me to serve as your state senator. I cherish and respect our way of life and am truly humbled that you have entrusted this job to me. I will always do my best to be a senator you can be proud of. Part of my job as your senator is to help ensure that bills that may have a negative impact are fully scrutinized and prevented from passing if they are detrimental to the citizens of Florida. The following are examples that some of my colleagues and I helped prevent from passing: Closing Jefferson County Correctional Facility. Thankfully, crime is down in Florida and for that we should all be very grateful. However, the sudden and unanticipated closing of a local prison in a small town can have devastating consequences. We held off this closure for at least a year, but there is no doubt that this ght will return again in 2013. Privatizing Prisons. I believe it is bad public policy to entrust public safety to the lowest bidder. I also believe that turning over many of our states prisons to private companies would hurt the workers in those facilities. Thankfully, we defeated in very close vote a measure that would have privatized 30 south Florida prisons and would have also created massive worker displacement of local correctional ofcers in North Florida. This would have hurt local jobs and local families. Allowing private companies to shut down/take over our public schools. Mislabeled as the so-called, parent trigger bill, this measure would have allowed private companies to come in and lobby parents to take over not x a troubled school. This was not true parent empowerment and could have caused the shut down or privatization of many of our local public schools. More harm to state public employees. The past few years have been very tough on state employees. This year, we fought hard to make sure that the legislature did not cut salaries, benets or pensions and I am thankful we were able to kill those bad ideas. Unfortunately, we were unable to stop what I believe is an unconstitutional invasion of privacy with the requirement that all state employees be subject to expensive random drug tests. However, through the combined efforts of a lot of people we were able to make some signicant accomplishments. Some of them are: A balanced approach to septic tanks. In 2010, the legislature passed an overreaching program related to septic tank regulations that unfairly hit rural communities the hardest. This year, we were able to repeal that law and replace it with a more balanced and more sensible approach that protects precious water sources while scaling back the unnecessary and expensive evaluations and repairs. Additionally, we put more power into the hands of local communities to allow for more local control of the implementation of septic tank assessment programs. Education Accountability. I sponsored and we passed a bill to improve Floridas educational accountability standards that clears up conicts with the federal government. Such conicts could have cost our state millions of dollars for our schools. More money for our schools. While I opposed many of the cuts to badly needed programs, I am pleased our state added back $1 billion in money for public schools. While these cuts only help repair some of many years of setbacks, I want to commend my legislative colleagues for recognizing that public schools cannot continue cutting educational programs at the expense of our children and I hope this trend will continue for many years to come. Rural Economic development. Our Big Bend will be a major part of this effort, which will benet the hardworking people and their families throughout North Florida. Redistricting. As required by the Florida Constitution, we passed maps for Senate, House and Congressional Districts. I am very disappointed that Jackson County will not be a part of our district, but look forward to working with Sen. Gaetz to make sure we take care of North Florida. The people of Jackson County have always been a vital part of our district. We are fortunate to have all of Leon, Jefferson and Madison counties added to our district, as well as all of Taylor and Hamilton counties. In closing, I thank those who contacted me to share their concerns and ideas as to how I can be of greater service to the citizens. I value every contact and am grateful that so many of you care enough about our state and to have your voice heard. I am especially grateful to those community leaders who spent many hours working the halls to help us pass good bills for North Florida. I value and appreciate your condence in me. I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and if I can ever be of service please call me at 487-5004. Sincerely,Bill Montford SSEN. BILL M MONtTFORDSpecial to the TimesAttorney General Pam Bondi invites the public to make suggestions on how best to distribute approximately $300 million recovered on behalf of Floridas consumers in the national mortgage servicing settlement. From now through Monday, May 14, at 5 p.m., the public may submit suggestions to the Attorney Generals Ofce by visiting MyFloridaLegal.com. Florida is one of the hardest hit states in the country in terms of foreclosures, and Id like to hear from Floridians about ways we can help homeowners and offset the devastation caused by the foreclosure crisis, Bondi said. In the next several weeks, Bondi will be evaluating input from the public, interested stakeholders and representatives of the Governors Ofce and the Legislature before distributing settlement funds. In February 2012, Bondi entered a $25 billion joint federal-state agreement with the nations ve largest mortgage servicers over foreclosure abuses and unacceptable nationwide mortgage servicing practices. The court-approved settlement calls for the Attorney General to direct approximately $300 million in consumer relief for purposes intended to avoid preventable foreclosures, to ameliorate the effects of the foreclosure crisis, and to enhance law enforcement efforts against nancial fraud. The settlement agreement lists permissible uses of the settlement funds, including: housing counselors, state and local foreclosure assistance hotlines, state and local foreclosure mediation programs, legal assistance, housing remediation and anti-blight projects, and training and stafng of nancial fraud or consumer protection enforcement efforts. More information regarding the uses of these settlement funds can be found under Exhibit B of the nal settlement agreement at MyFloridaLegal.com. Special to the TimesA new rider inserted into the House Energy and water Appropriations Bill this week could have negative impacts on streams and wetlands all across the country, harming efforts to protect water quality and degrading angling opportunity in waters treasured by all Americans. This rider is an ill-conceived attack on the Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency that goes after the helpful efforts of these agencies to clarify Clean Water Act protections for streams and wetlands, said Steve Moyer, vice president for government affairs at Trout Unlimited. This is the third year in a row the House Appropriations Committee has added harmful provisions to this bill. In the past, these riders have been beaten back. They need to be beaten back again. Specically, the riders would bar the Corps from nalizing and implementing science-based Clean Water Act guidance. Sportsmen across the country support the efforts on the part of the Corps and the EPA to implement the guidance, because angling and hunting depend so much on clean water. When wetlands are drained, and clean water is polluted, sh and game struggle, and sportsmen and women feel the impacts. Last summer, the Corps and the EPA received more than 200,000 comments on the need for guidance implementation. The vast majority supported the guidance, including more than 250 sportsmen and conservation organizations and the administrations of 28 states. The guidance includes existing exemptions for agricultural activity and provides vital clarity to landowners, developers and state and federal agencies that often work near irreplaceable water resources. Rather than making it easier to pollute and foul our countrys water resources, Congress ought to be insisting that this clarity be put in place so the Clean Water Act can be as effective as possible, Moyer said. Were talking water here. Its the lifeblood of our country, and we must treat is as such. Trout Unlimited is a private, non-prot organization with more than 140,000 members dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring North Americas trout and salmon sheries and their watersheds.House rider puts Americas waters at riskPublic input sought on settlement fundsSpecial to the TimesA new report from the Institute of Medicine is calling for dramatic action on the part of governments, the food and health care industries, and schools to help curb obesity. The IOM report recommends reducing the consumption of sugary drinks, something long urged by the nonprot Center for Science in the Public Interest. The IOM report provides an excellent blueprint for solving Americas costly obesity problem. But policy makers will have to invest both money and political capital to convert the advice into reality, said Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Congress should fund a multibillion-dollar, multi-year anti-obesity program that includes national and local community and socialmarketing campaigns. That program could be funded with a signicant tax on sugary beverages. The SNAP (food stamp) program should be improved by testing the effectiveness of excluding purchases of sugary beverages and providing a bonus for fruits and vegetables. This country has shown that it can solve almost any problem when we come together and make it a priority as we have to cut smoking rates in half, said CSPI nutrition policy director Margo Wootan. With two-thirds of Americans affected by pre-obesity and obesity, this is clearly a societal problem that requires action by individuals, families, schools, health ofcials and professionals, governments, and industry. CSPI called on the Obama administration to nalize strong menulabeling rules which cover all foods at chains, including alcoholic beverages, prepared foods in supermarkets, and snacks at movie theaters. Its unconscionable that we are still doing so little to help the two-thirds of Americans who are at risk of costly and debilitating obesity-related problems like heart attack, stroke, amputations, blindness, and cancer. Wootan said.Science group wants for tax on sugary drinks

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, May 10, 2012to 8 qualifying period. In the event that only Democrats le for this ofce or any of the county of ces, Republicans and those without party af liation would be able to vote in any race that has candidates from only one political party, known as a universal race. The following is a statement issued by the candidate: I, Noah Lockley, Democrat, have led paperwork for re-election as county commissioner, District 3. I have held this of ce for the past eight years, having been elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2008 without opposition. As a county commissioner, I have a responsibility of carrying on county government as it pertains to providing and maintaining county buildings, providing hospitals and ambulance service, providing parks, recreation areas, libraries and museums, providing waste and sewage collection and disposal, providing and maintaining roads and bridges, and establishing and enforcing zoning regulations. I have strived to meet all the obligations of the of ce and will continue to do so. I have been available to all the citizens of Franklin County in my endeavor to meet the duties of the commission and to assist my constituents. I have been active in continued improvements to Weems Hospital and supported our local health department too because of the need for quality health care in our rural area. I have attended many hospital board meetings. I have been instrumental in getting roads in my district and throughout the county paved. Road paving was one of my focuses early on, and I worked with the budget over a period of time to build a fund for that purpose without having to borrow any money. Our roads are safer and more accessible. I worked hard towards getting the sidewalk project completed in my district because I saw the need for this project which also provides a safer option for travel by foot or bicycle, especially for our children. I have worked diligently with the people in my district through the Workforce Center and believe obtaining jobs for our people is a priority. There are some ongoing projects at our airport, and I continually insist local people be provided job opportunities. I have always pushed for local bid preference on all county projects when possible. I believe in local control. I have pushed for affordable housing options and will continue to do so as the economy improves and housing developments emerge. I know we need to make sure our young adults will be given an opportunity to stay here in the county and afford to do so. I played an active role during the Deep Water Horizon (BP) oil spill to make sure the Apalachicola Bay and our seafood was protected and to ensure that every person or business who was entitled to a claim received the same. I have endeavored to look out for the best interest of our citizens and our county employees. I have supported the increase of services to the public as requested when possible. I have been very accessible to the people in my district. I attend Florida Association of Counties conferences which have afforded me an opportunity in county education as well as providing me the opportunity to meet other county commissioners who lend knowledge to me based on their experiences. I participate in activities within my community, I am married to Georgia Lockley, and our grown children live and work in Franklin County. I seek re-election to continue to provide for the needs of the people in District 3. I appreciate the trust I have received, and I will continue to be a commissioner for the people.

Were just trying to generate some income and jobs. Shields brie y explained how fossil shell is used to renew oyster bars and said the process is in practice from Pensacola to Apalachicola Bay. He said he believed Crowder intended to transport the shells from Liberty County for use in other states. Who doesnt like raw oysters? Mayor Curley Messer said. They are talking about using ancient oyster shells to rebuild the bars. But waterfront residents expressed fear noise and pollution would be generated as well as jobs. Glen MacMurray, who owns a townhouse adjacent to the proposed project, objected. This thing theyre proposing is going against what youve got here, he said. I bring my family and friends spend a lot of money. Youre going to bring dump trucks and barges into the middle of this beautiful city. I truly believe it will damage the economy here in Carrabelle. His remarks drew spirited applause from about a third of the audience. Hartman warned the commission to be very careful about blessing industrial activity on the waterfront, adding that industrial activity was allowed on Timber Island. Gathana Parmenas, a former city commissioner, disagreed, describing the transportation and storage of shell as heavy industry, disallowed both downtown and on Timber Island. This isnt just a zoning issue, she said. It would require a comp plan amendment. Only light industrial (use) is allowed. Mining is heavy industrial. Another audience member argued for the shell transport scheme. Hes going after a permit to transport, not for mining. When I heard you clapping, I had to think none of you has children or grandchildren here that they want to stay here, the man said. What theyre trying to do is make opportunity for Carrabelle. His remarks drew as much applause as MacMurrays. David Butler, head of Carrabelles Economic Development Council, said he supported parts of Crowders plan. I would like to see the space become commercial waterfront again, Butler said. Hallelujah! Thats what we need for our culture and our heritage. He agreed that industrial activity downtown would add even more complications. Butler noted there was bound to be pushback from residential landowners if commercial activity on the waterfront increased. Its kind of like moving next to the airport and complaining about the noise, Butler said. Commissioner Cal Allen offered support for Crowders plan. I have no problem for using this for oyster restoration, he said. It would tickle me if you would bring in shing boats and put a seafood processing plant there. He also agreed zoning would be an issue if shell transport was proposed. Allen moved the commission request the Corps hold a public hearing on Crowders proposal but the motion failed, with Charlotte Schneider, Frank Mathes and Messer opposed. Mathes then moved the city support Crowders request to remove his pilings. That measure passed 3 with La Paz and Allen opposed. Schneider made it clear she supported only the removal of the pilings. I wont ght about pulling the pilings out. When it comes to changing the comp plan, thats different, she said. Even with city support to remove the pilings, and to pursue licensing for the change to the docks, Crowder acknowledged Tuesday that industrial use of the harbor would pose problems. In a prepared statement to the Times, a company spokesperson wrote that Jimmie Crowder was disappointed to learn that the transporting of the oyster shells from C-Quarters Marina was not an allowable use of the property. As a longtime supporter, land and business owner of Carrabelle, Mr. Crowder had hoped that this venture would bring additional jobs and revenue to the community. He remains committed to helping the community. CROWDER from page A1 .Youre going to bring dump trucks and barges into the middle of this beautiful city.

Planned to coincide with the annual Historic Apalachicola Home and Garden Tour this weekend, the exhibit will be on display through May 31. While there will be no opening party, a soiree is planned for Tuesday, May 15. Many of the early works to be displayed are portraits. Smith-Willow said he also painted timely subjects in the early years, including the Vietnam War and early space exploration. In addition to a collection of paintings, Smith-Willow will display photographs of his other works. A lot of things I have painted are gone now, particularly the waterfront stuff prior to (Hurricane) Dennis, he said. The paintings feature local scenes with one wall devoted to seafood workers. There also are scenes from SmithWillows travels in Italy, Mexico and Costa Rica. Many of his early works are portraits including that of a spritely Tennessee whittler. SmithWillow said he sought the man out to observe his technique. The whittler began each piece with a small chain saw and to display his expertise with the saw, the folk artist used it to peel an apple mounted on a stick, while Smith-Willow watched. You will recognize some local faces in the exhibit and if you look carefully, you may pick up on some underlying themes. This exhibit is a mustsee for local art lovers as well as visitors to the area. Dont miss this opportunity to observe the evolution of a major talent over half a century.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com OUTDOORSwww.apalachtimes.comSection Section A amberjack plus an occasional dolphin and sail, as well as inshore staples of trout and red sh all are doing their thing all at once. So many sh, so little time. The great thing about an everything bite is that you can start the morning inshore, enjoy bringing in some fat specks and brawny reds, maybe even a few blues though they are more a cool-weather sh, plus Spanish and a nowand-then pompano and when your crew has had all of that fun they can stand, head out the nearest pass for the beaches and the nearshore reefs. Close to the beach youll nd the mother lodes of Spanish, lots of kings from schoolies to giant smokers, the lingering ling and more pompano. Move a bit farther out and you will nd plenty of broad-shouldered amberjacks, red grouper and assorted other bottom sh. But not gags they are closed in the western Panhandle until July 1, and not red snapper, which open May 31 statewide, and yes, you do need to have www. myfwc.com as one of the quick links on your smartphone because these rules are hard to keep up with. And, though bluewater time here is generally considered to be late June and on through mid-September, anytime a weedline shows up within 10 miles of the beach this month, youd be wise to pull a rigged hoo or ying sh around it because both dolphin and sails have been caught already this year. Its probably too early to risk the jumbo fuel bill required for a 200-mile roundtrip to DeSoto Canyon where anything from blue marlin to wahoo to yellow ns will soon be on tap, but if youre jonesing for an early blue water x, keep an eye out for those weeds, likely to show inshore anytime there is a sustained southerly wind.INSHORE ACTIONTrout and reds are pretty much a gimme this month from Apalach to Pensacola Bay, including St. Joe Bay, St. Andrew Bays West Bay, North Bay and East Bay and of course the sprawl of Choctawhatchee Bay. It used to be knowing where to sh on these big bays took years of trial-anderror experience, but these days its become a lot simpler just click up Google Earth on your web-browser and zoom in on the shorelines of any of the above bays. Most of the shoreline ats are white sand, but select areas show the dark, irregular shape of aquatic weeds. Weeds hold shrimp, crabs and bait sh, and those attract game sh. Find an area where the grass has something extra, such as a channel cut through it, the in ow of a creek, a point, a rock pile or a dock, and you have a location highly likely to produce. All these locations are clearly visible on the overhead view provided by Google Earth, and a latitude/longitude readout follows your cursor so that you can program these locations exactly into your GPS, allowing you to nd them even at dawn or dusk. High-end GPS units these days have the aerial view built right in to the program, so you can go directly to them and scout out and mark new spots while youre on the water. Live shrimp are the easiest bait to obtain, and shed under a popping cork over good grass they pretty much assure a few sh for the skillet. However, pin sh and other bait stealers can drive you crazy with the shrimp most guides, looking for larger sh, make use of live pigsh, pin sh, thread ns or other baits. Some baitshops sell them, but you may have to resort to a shrimpbaited trap in the shallows to get shable quantities consistently on pig sh and pins, or to being handy with a castnet for the thread ns, aka greenbacks. If you dont want to go to the trouble, make use of a quarter-ounce jig or swimbait, a suspending baitfish imitation like the Mirr-O-Dine, a DOA plastic shrimp or early and late a noisy topwater plug like a Super Spook or Gunfish. You wont usually catch as many fish with artificials, but the ones you do catch are often larger and you spend more time casting and less rounding up bait and rebaiting the hook. Large trout will be found in the shallows throughout May and June they most often spawn around the new and full moon on channel edges at night according to FWC biologists, and these fish then cruise the nearest grassy shallows as the sun rises sometimes into water barely a foot deep. Red sh also prowl the shallows, often in water so shallow its possible to see their tails and backs. Sight casting to these sh with avored baits like a Berkley Gulp crab is an effective tactic put it ahead of them and let them swim up to it. The venerable Johnson Silver Minnow, a weedless spoon, is another good red sh offering, as are various topwaters and snagless jerkbaits like the Yum Money Minnow.By FRANK SARGEANTfranksargeant@charter.net Panhandle anglers tend to think in terms of seasons.

Nice sized trout can be found this week around the deeper holes and channels south of Blacks Island. Live shrimp under a pooping cork should prove deadly for these sh! Lake Wimico has produced a lot of bass lately and that should hold out again this week. Most anglers are using spinner baits and topwater baits at rst light.

SPONSORED BY KING MACKERELThursday, May 10, 2012 Page 8But this year, the rapid warm-up and 76-degree water stretching throughout the area a month early mean May is going to be everything season. Top anglers and guides are reporting cobia, Spanish, kings, pompano and, yes, even early tarpon plus offshore sh such as black n tuna and PASSES AND NEARSHORESpanish swarm around places like Destin Pass and St. Andrews, picking off the vast schools of bait that work in and out with the tides. You can clearly see the channel edges on the Google Earth overhead views; set up on these locations inside on incoming, outside on outgoing hang a bag of frozen chopped bait off the transom, and let the sh come to you. A live threadn free-lined in the slick is unbeatable. Or, you can cowboy them early in the day, motoring up to breaking schools and tossing a small spoon, lipless crankbait or other fast-moving and tooth-resistant lure to the white water. Youll often catch Spanish on one cast and blues on another with this tactic, and on the outside bonito add to the excitement. Live bait will also draw the occasional king sh and there still are a few cobia migrating past. There are numerous reefs within the major bays, as well, and these draw both Spanish and bottom sh including mangrove snapper, grouper and sheepshead.

CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA SP O RTS www.apalachtimes.comThursday, May 10, 2011 APage 9Sectiondrove left of the center line and struck the left front of Segrees vehicle. The impact of the crash caused the truck to overturn before coming to rest upright on the north shoulder, according to the report. Moses, who was not wearing his seat belt, was transported to Bay Medical Center with serious injuries. A passenger in the Kia, Sabrina L. Hicks, 37, of Eastpoint, was taken to Weems Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. Both individuals were recovering as of press time. Both Hicks and Segree, who were returning from Wednesday evening services at the First Pentecostal Holiness Church, had been wearing their seatbelts, said the report. The report said alcohol was not a factor in the crash and that charges are pending. WRECKfrom page A1Ruic removed several light xtures that he insisted were his, but are arguably owned by the county, his landlord, which had offset a portion of his rent in exchange for the long-term improvements. There were no major incidents, but it did not go smoothly, said Ted Mosteller, airport manager and chairman of the airport advisory committee. Mosteller said the county has asked that inmate crews begin the process of preparing the airport property for a new tenant. In their discussions last week, the commissioners nixed a proposal by Van Der Linden for the county to pay all costs to put the facility back in a condition that is standard within the industry and comparable to other similarly situated airports. Shuler said that would be going beyond the usual responsibility of a landlord. I dont think we should have that obligation, he said. We make it broom clean and he takes it as is. The attorney also cautioned the commissioners that Fly High should be given latitude to do what needs to be done in the future. We should not get into the business of micromanaging the tenant, Shuler said. Commissioner Smokey Parrish insisted Fly High maintain strict records on how frequently they change the lter at the fuel farm, and share that information with the airport board. Commissioner Noah Lockley asked for, and received, a requirement that Fly High has 30 days after signing a deal to have an aircraft maintenance service in place, much less time than the six months that Van Der Linden sought. Shuler stressed that the county has responsibility for major repairs, provided thay are not as a result of the tenants negligence. If he breaks it, he xes it, he said. Hes going to have to undertake minimal repair obligations. I have had tenants who will call the landlord incessantly every time theres a leaky faucet. Mosteller told commissioners the airport was undergoing a rehab project, using grant money for some of the repair work to the roof and air conditioning system. But otherwise were paying out of the kitty, he said. Parrish was wary of why Van Der Linden was making his request. That tells me he doesnt think the buildings up to standard, he said. What is he referring to? I am wondering if he knows something we dont know. Alan Pierce, county director of administrative services, said van der Linden told him his major concern was for carpet cleaning, and possible ea eradication due to Ruics pets. Both matters would fall under a county obligation. On Shulers recommendation, the commissioners also declined to conduct a Phase I and Phase II environmental baseline study on the leased premises and fuel storage site, as Van der Linden requested. My view is we do not undertake this at this late stage, Shuler said. This will entail additional weeks of study to do that. The commissioners agreed to several speci cs to the lease, mainly to set accepted industry standards as the basis for obligations of the two parties. They noted that the county carries its own insurance on the property, which it owns, and are asking Van Der Linden to carry his own general liability and hangar insurance, and recommended he insure his personal belongings. The county dismissed a request by van der Linden for a years free rent, based on his contention that Ruics sudden departure had left him with the repercussions of an airport closure. I told him free rent was out of the question, chairman Pinki Jackel said. Jackel advocated for the decision to allow him to pay rent quarterly. That would give him the ability to come in and do what he needs to do, she said. It gives him a chance to catch his breath. Were still going to collect the rent and if we dont collect the rent hes in default. Still, the matter concerned Chuck Marks, a member of the airport board. If hes that cash strapped, were in trouble to begin with, he said. Fly Highs challenges are many if they choose to ink a deal, as only about half of the aircraft T-hangars, which rent for between about $200 and $350 a month, are now under lease. In addition, the current state of the airport, in which it is on par with St. George Island and Dog Island in terms of lacking any facilities such as fuel and rest rooms, has taken a short-term toll. There are very big negatives right now but its not the death of the airport at all, he said. Theres no reason because of this for it to die. We may lose some (pilots) permanently, they may come in here and may decide to go somewhere else, Mosteller said. But two to three months down the road the customers will come back. Under new management, theyll come back out. AIRPORT from page A1 By PAT HALESpecial to the Times The 13th annual Boy Scout Youth Regatta fundraiser was the place to be Saturday, May 5. There was more food, fun and fellowship on St. George Island than anywhere else on the Forgotten Coast. Sixteen competitors vied for honors on eight Hobie Cat sailboats. Each year, Scout Troop 22 offers a guest expert program on the Friday prior to the race to re ne the skills of those competing. This year, scouts were lucky to host the world-renowned Hobie Cat sailor Tom Korzenewski from Syracuse, N.Y. The legendary Korzenewski has won races all over the globe for the past 30 years. Troop 22 welcomed him and said they felt lucky to have him here for this years regatta. The scouts learned a lot and said they were grateful for his coaching expertise. Korzenewski also acted as an of cial during the race. Troop leaders Pat and Larry Hale also want to thank the St. George Island Yacht Club Commodore and Coach David Walker, who took extra time to help them out around the camp and water. Special thanks to cooking team Kevin Delahanty, Big Dan Dush, Connie Carver and Dave and Ronnie Wallace. They prepared a wonderful barbeque lunch and also the tastiest low-country boil in the entire Southeast. The scouts also wish to thank Journeys of St. George Island for the use of their pontoon boat, which served as committee boat and thanks to Dave Armentrout for skippering the boat. Many wonderful people from the community donated money, time and support to the scouting program. For this the scouts said they are truly grateful. If you believe in the Boy Scouts of America and the Venturing Crew (girls in Boy Scouting), its always a good time to donate to a local troop and crew. Its tax deductible.

At the city commissions April 5 meeting, Millender said her group, Millenders group, a forpro t entity, plans to create a recreation center for Carrabelles youth in the building. On Thursday, the commission was informed that Millender and her associates are now represented by Homer McMillan of Compass Law. Neither McMillan nor Millender was present at the May 3 meeting. Millender has been granted permission to rent the building for $5 per month. She is responsible for paying all utilities. Millenders group also requested that a $1,000 deposit be waived in exchange for the cost of repairing existing air conditioners. Mayor Curley Messer expressed strong support for Millender and her plan. Commissioner Brenda La Paz asked that the lease specify that rent on the building be reviewed at the end of the rst ve years. The commission voted unanimously to grant the 20-year lease with a review of the rent after ve years.Carrabelle water customer seeks aidAt Carrabelles May 3 meeting, Garry Sheward requested a reduction in his water bill for his home on Collins/Pine in Lanark Village. Sheward told the commission he was billed for 68,390 gallons of water on his May bill, which re ects water consumption in April. The charge for the month was $768. He said that, for the last three years, during to months of March through May, he used an average of about 60 gallons per month and his total water consumption over the last ve years was only 55,000 gallons. Sheward said he resides in his Franklin County home only on weekends and he knows of no unusual water use during April except for overnight leaks in a water hose and an icemaker. Sheward has now placed a lock on the meter and it seems to be operating properly, he said. Brenda La Paz, water commissioner said the city would rebate his $143 sewer fee because there was no reason to believe the lost water had been passed through the sewer system. City Administrator Courtney Millender said it is not uncommon for the city to rebate sewer fees on unusually high bills but does not normally reduce water bills. City Clerk Keisha Smith said customers contesting a bill can have their meter sent away for calibration but, if the meter is not in error the customer is responsible for the calibration fee. She said Sheward can arrange to make payments on the bill over time at city hall.
