ELECTION 2012 TONY SHIVER By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In a urry of activity over the past week, county commissioners decided to try an interim, local solution for managing the Apalachicola Regional Airport and ended negotiations with the two outside rms that had sought to become the xed base operator. By unanimous agreement, with Cheryl Sanders patched in by telephone during her recovery from hip surgery, the commissioners voted at a May 9 special meeting to have Ted Mosteller, airport manager and chairman of the airport advisory committee, assume the duties of running the airport. The board also approved the immediate hiring of Arthur Perky White, a Gulf County resident and airplane pilot, as a temporary employee at the airport. At Tuesday mornings regular meeting, the board unanimously approved the terms of hiring the two men. White is to be paid $16 per hour for a 40-hour week, to run Thursday through Monday. As a temporary employee under Mostellers supervision, White is not eligible to receive bene ts, provided his term of employment does not exceed 6 months. Mosteller continues to receive a 1 percent administrative fee from grants as his payment, rather than an hourly salary. The decision to go with an interim solution to running the airport came at an urgent special meeting called on the By Lois Swoboda and David Adlerstein 653-8868 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The 20th annual Historic Apalachicola Home & Garden Tour on May 8 provided a new wine in old bottles, so to speak. For the rst time, the tour added a day-long symposium on Friday for serious preservationists, further underscoring this years theme, A By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In an enormous outpouring of both sadness and joy, friends and family of Vicky Harris Segree celebrated her life May 8 in an over ow service at Apalachicolas First Pentecostal Holiness Church, where she dedicated her faith. Segree died in a head-on collision May 2 on the Gorrie bridge while she and a friend, Sabrina Sanders Hicks, were returning home from church services. They were part of a queue of church members from Eastpoint that made the trek each Wednesday night to and from the Brownsville Road church. Charges are pending against Chandler Moses, the 19-yearold driver of a pickup truck investigators believe crossed the center line and veered directly into Segrees Kia. Moses sustained serious injuries and was taken to Bay Medical Center, where he has since been treated and released. Hicks was taken to Weems Memorial Hospital, and it was hours before her family could join her because of the traf c detour. Hicks, who did not have a car to get to church, rode regularly with Segree, a close personal friend and mentor. When she went out of this world, we were praising and worshipping God.

I was raised in Eastpoint and graduated from Carrabelle High School. In addition to living in Eastpoint, I lived in Apalachicola eight years, and since 1990 I have resided on St George Island. I worked in the commercial seafood industry until just under the age of 30. During that time, I completed training as a correctional of cer and served with the Franklin County Sheriffs Department. While working with the sheriffs department, I continued my education, attending the Lively Technical Center Law Enforcement Academy and later Gulf Coast Community College. After leaving the sheriffs department, I worked with the Florida Department of Corrections and served as administrative sergeant at the Bay City Work Camp in Apalachicola. During the last 15 years, I have worked alongside my wife, where I have gained valuable experience in the workings of small businesses. Having lived and worked in Franklin County my whole life, I deeply value tradition, yet understand the importance of carefully building for the future. I feel I have a good understanding of the needs of our county, and I will strive to see our community ourish while protecting our way of life. If elected as your county commissioner for District 1, I will not only be available to the people, but I will respond to you in a timely manner. If you have any questions for me, please call me at 850-323-1590. she never even knew, said Hicks, who is continuing her recuperation from injuries to her knee, sternum and rib cage. Im sad because I miss her, I miss her dearly. She was a great friend. Pastor Susan Roach, who of ciated at the funeral service, said only about half of the 600 people in attendance were able to t into the sanctuary, with the rest seated in the hallways, the social hall and the nursery, where Segree long had devoted herself to the churchs children. Vicky was the type of person, she always acknowledged children and spoke to them and made sure they felt important, Roach said. She was one of the most precious people Ive ever known. You never heard a downside from Vicky, never negative remarks. Beyond her work in the nursery and as a crew leader with the vacation Bible school, Segree served with the womens ministry and was an important mentor to Hicks, the leader of that outreach. She helped me a lot behind the scenes, Hicks said. She helped a lot of people by just loving and caring. She always had a kind word for everyone; she ministered to a lot of lost souls. Roach said what stood out about Segrees Christianity was her ability to gently reach out to others. She had the ability where she didnt come off with a self-righteous attitude. She could just talk to you so you didnt feel like you had been bombarded. You were just cordially invited. We have people in our church who have looked at me and told me, Shes the reason Im here. She invited them, Roach said. The pastor said Segree was active as a Prayer Warrior, praying on others behalf. She was someone you could call, and shed pray for whatever was going on, Roach said. If she had not been the victim, she would have been one of the ones who would be praying for people who were having trouble. Segrees work triggered a lighthearted memory from Roach about the last prayer intercessor meeting Segree attended. The pastor had asked for a prayer on behalf of her grandsons Dixie Youth League team, and Segree was prepared to begin, before stopping to ask, Well now, Sister Roach, what team does he play on, and whos he playing? I looked at her and said, We have a con ict dont we? Roach said. She had grandchildren playing that night. When we established the fact that it was not her grandsons team, she was in agreement with me. She wasnt going to agree in prayer against her grandson. Hicks said that after God, Segree put her family rst. She loved God above anybody and anything, she said. Her family meant the world to her. She would have done anything for her family. Hicks described the services, which included music by the praise teams from both First Pentecostal and the Eastpoint Church of God, as the best service she had ever been to, and one that gave her closure to this terrifying episode. Even though I was there (in the accident) and I knew what happened, it was not that real to me. It was like I was in a daze, a nightmare that I couldnt come out of. The celebration was a celebration of life that she went home. Like those in the Harris family, Hicks said she offered forgiveness and support to the Moses family. My prayers go out to them, she said. Everybody makes mistake, everybody has accidents. Nobody knows what caused him to hit us. I cant imagine the suffering that hes going through, not only because hes physically injured, but hes mentally injured. My heart goes out to them as well as the Segree family. Florida Highway Patrol traf c homicide supervisor Sgt. Aaron B. Stephens said investigators are awaiting results of mandatory toxicology tests performed on both drivers. He said a toxicology screen performed on Moses the night of the crash at Weems Memorial Hospital was negative, but the results are not considered nal. The 9:20 p.m. accident shut down vehicle traf c between Eastpoint and Apalachicola until about 3 a.m., as the Florida Highway Patrol and law enforcement personnel continued their careful investigation into what had happened, making sure debris was left intact and the tire marks were not obscured. Stephens said once the autopsy reports are in and he and fellow of cers have reviewed investigators ndings, including cellphone records, it will be up to the states attorney of ce to determine what the next step will be. Stephens declined comment on Moses traf c record, including two tickets the 19-year-old received earlier that day citing him with running a stop sign and not wearing his seatbelt. On May 11, Moses paid a total of $266 in nes and was given until Aug. 9 to complete traf c school for those earlier citations.

Local The Times | A3 Thursday, May 17, 2012 eve of a deadline to sign a deal with Fly High, the rm whose bid was at the head of the line to become the new FBO. Chairman Pinki Jackel made it clear at the meetings outset that the county was not facing a rumored $10,000-per-day ne from the Federal Aviation Administration for security violations. Alan Pierce, the countys director of administrative services, said the airport has restored a secure perimeter, including use of the keypad gate entrance. Former FBO Bill Ruic vacated his post over the May 4-6 weekend, reportedly disgruntled over the countys decision not to renew his deal. Mosteller said there had been no vandalism at the airport, but that Ruic had refused to turn over a list of who was renting the Thangars. Last month, Ruic shut down the fuel farm and disconnected the phones in advance of his departure, leaving the airport without important services and serving as a deterrent for many pilots who learned through FAA noti cations that the airport was now little more than a paved landing eld. In addition, Ruic had removed several light xtures he insisted were his, but arguably are owned by the county, which had offset a portion of his rent in exchange for the long-term improvements. Commissioners wasted little time in stressing the urgency of the situation. We need it up and running, Bevin Putnal said. Every day that we lose, were losing business that we may not get back, were losing money and were losing customers. I dont like that. We should have done this before we ever negotiated a contract. We should have hired someone to keep it running. A lot of this is our fault for not acting soon enough, he said. This should have been taken care of months ago, Sanders said. We have a lot of people that depend on this airport. Weve got to get this open there. We have a responsibility to people to go and get this thing done. Replenishing supplies to the ve-year-old fuel farm was tops on the list of priorities. Pierce said Ruic had installed a credit card machine, but did not offer selfservice fuel. What is left there still has to have a phone line, Pierce said. The nearest phone line is a half-mile away. But even without that we can still pump gas, and even without a credit card machine gas can be charged. In addition to hiring the two men to step in and run the airport, the commissioners approved spending at least $70,000 to $80,000 to purchase fuel and to lease two trucks, one for aviation fuel and one for jet fuel, to get the airport up and running. At Tuesday mornings meeting, Pierce said he, County Attorney Michael Shuler, Mosteller and White had met with a prospective fuel supplier, Perry Brothers, who proposed a 6-month arrangement to provide fuel and fuel trucks. We also asked them to inspect our fuel farm so that it can meet the industry standard of a branded fuel, in this case Phillips Petroleum, which would enable Phillips to provide additional liability insurance for their products, Pierce said. With the commissioners approval, Shuler said the fuel tanks would be lled later this week and, following inspection and employee training, fuel could be pumped as early as rst thing next week. I do have a good feeling about them. I have no reason to think they will not play fairly with us, Shuler said of the small, regional supply rm. They are hoping to become the future provider, but they have not been promised that. Pierce said the county will tack on $1 more per gallon than what it pays for the fuel, which last year brought in about $80,000. Also at Tuesdays meeting, the commissioners unanimously agreed to set rates for the T-hangars at $100 less per month than what Ruic had been charging, in an effort to attract tenants to ll the 17 of 34 hangars that are now vacant. The monthly rates are now $250 for the large hangars and $200 for the small hangars. No agreement reached with bidders At the special meeting last week, commissioners remained sharply divided about which of the two top bidders Fly High out of Lexington, N.C., and Grace Industries, out of Greensboro, Tenn. they should go with to strike a long-term deal. Smokey Parrish began the discussion by saying he had talked with Graces James Lawrence and that he had expressed interest in signing a contract based on the terms negotiated by the board. He would accept that contract as is and go out and start services there, Parrish said, noting that White had agreed to work for Grace. The main thing is to get it up and running, White said. I can go pump gas now. If I can do it alone, theres no reason to have anyone else there. The main thing is service. You already got something there thats an economic engine already. Jackel expressed skepticism, noting that Lawrence had no experience running an airport. We agreed to lease him a hangar, and he has yet to sign a contract. He cant even sign a hangar lease, and he has no experience running an FBO, she said. Theres been a lot of communication as to his stability, as to his wherewithal and the record he has currently in the area hes working now. Theres been a lot of information put out on this gentleman; Im not sure about this. I dont want to just jump to the next thing, she said. We need to immediately get fuel pumping, and we can worry about a long-term 20-year contract later on. I think Ruic has made a big mess of things. We need to do business with someone who is stable. That is my concern. We dont want to be back here a year from now with a failed contract. Parrishs motion to ink a deal with Grace was defeated 2-3, with only him and Noah Lockley in support. The commissioners also had dif culties with Fly High. From the beginning Ive been impressed by Fly High. The guy seems to know about how to run an airport, said Chuck Marks, a member of the airport advisory board. Theres too much risk for them to sign the lease contract at this point. But the commissioners expressed no interest in signing a deal to hire Fly High as an independent contractor on an interim basis, with monthly fees amounting to at least about $7,000 not including other ancillary expenses such as lodging. Hes willing to date but not get married, Shuler said of the proposal. If Im going to run an airport, Im going to be down there looking, Lockley said. He (Fly High) should be there showing his interest. These people are not interested to me, and at 5 p.m. Im not going to be interested in him. Sanders was sympathetic to Fly Highs concerns and moved to continue talks with the company, a motion that passed 3-2 with Parrish and Lockley opposed. I dont blame Fly High if they have a problem with it. They have no fuel, and they have no security, she said. (It would be different) had we done everything were supposed to do as a county, had we done everything to ensure a smooth transition. I dont think we have. I do not think we have made this an easy process for Fly High. Weve probably made this fairly dif cult. At Tuesdays meeting, Shuler said negotiations with Fly High had ended, with the company no longer interested in a deal. Pierce said the FBO is being repainted this week and that he had authorized $5,300 for new carpeting and $3,000 for a phone system that will be owned by the county. Call Now!

Steve Southerland II has applauded this past weeks House approval of an amendment that he introduced to prohibit federal funding for the expansion of Limited Access Privilege Programs, or catch shares, for sheries along the Gulf Coast and Atlantic seaboard. Southerlands amendment to the FY2013 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Act was approved by a bipartisan 220191 margin. Today marks an important milestone in our ght to advance freedom for our sheries, said Southerland. By gifting a select few with a stake of the annual allowable catch, catch shares amount to nothing less than a capand-trade management system that privatizes access to once open waterways. I am pleased that a strong bipartisan majority of my House colleagues joined me in standing with our shermen and opposing the federal governments efforts to pick winners and losers in our sheries. Southerland was joined in introducing his amendment by Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY). House OKs Southerlands catch share amendment Special to the Times Just in time for Mothers Day, a new national poll of American mothers nds that 71 percent support school vouchers for all children to get the best education possible. The poll, conducted April 1724, asked mothers of school-aged children and other adults in a statistically representative national survey how they feel about education in their communities and school choice. A resounding 71 percent of moms said they believe school vouchers should be available to all families regardless of income or special needs. Scholars debate whether educational options should only be offered to low-income children or those in failing schools, or to all children. According to data compiled by Braun Research Inc., most moms agree with Nobel laureate Milton Friedman who believed that educational choice should be available to all children. Only 30 percent of mothers said that vouchers should be based on nancial need compared to 71 percent of moms who said they should be available to all families, regardless of incomes and special needs. Of those mothers who offered specic grades (A to F), 65 percent of Moms graded their area public schools A or B compared to 83 percent of moms who gave the same high marks to parochial or private schools. The poll also asked mothers and other adults to grade their local public schools, charter schools and private schools. Poll nds moms support school vouchers Special to the Times Floridas real estate market outlook improved in the rst quarter of 2012, according to the University of Florida. The Survey of Emerging Market Conditions, conducted quarterly by the Kelley A. Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies at UFs Warrington College of Business Administration, revealed that those in the real estate business felt optimistic because of the falling unemployment rate and because they see more activity in rental housing, such as lease signings. The unemployment rate dropped from 9.9 percent in December 2011 to 9 percent in March. Positive outlooks for occupancy and rent growth along with an improving employment trend are increasing our respondents optimism about the real estate markets in Florida, said Timothy S. Becker, director of the Bergstrom Center. The UF Commercial Real Estate Sentiment Index, a measure of the respondents own business outlook, reached its highest level since 2007. Bergstrom Center ofcials attributed the rise to lenders and owners sensing a better lending environment with banks as well as an improving economy. With billions of dollars of loans coming due over the next year, the increased lending activity is a welcome sign for real estate owners and investors looking for debt capital to renance quality properties, Becker said. Property fundamentals including occupancy and rental rates improved this quarter with progress in single-family and condominium development, apartments, industrial, land investment and capital availability. Occupancy expectations were rated most favorably in the premium ofce market. Respondents cited a better employment outlook as the reason for optimism. Although respondents were optimistic about the industry and the overall economy, they cited concerns about the upcoming presidential election and the state governments nancial situation. Respondents said that signicant policy changes would most likely not be in place before the November elections and not resolving those issues could lead to harsh economic results. Among those issues are the Bush tax cuts and the payroll tax break, both scheduled to expire after 2012, and $1.2 trillion in spending cuts set to take effect in 2013. Respondents also were concerned with articially low interest rates, ination and increased gas prices. Overall, the survey revealed the future for real estate in Florida looks positive, but political and economic uncertainties remain. A majority of respondents expect a slow and measured recovery until the conclusion of the presidential elections. A total of 189 Florida professional real estate analysts and investors, representing 13 urban regions of the state and up to 15 property types, participated in the survey. The survey is done for participants in the commercial real estate market in Florida. The University of Florida, one of the nations largest public universities, received $619 million in sponsored research funding in 2010-11. Through its research and other activities, UF contributes more than $8.76 billion a year to Floridas economy and has a total employment impact of more than 100,000 jobs statewide. Floridas real estate professionals optimistic about market Special to the Times State Rep. Leonard Bembry (D-Greenville) is pleased to announce the passage of CS/ CS/HB 313, the Landowner/ Premises Liability bill he sponsored during the 2012 Legislative Session. It was signed by Gov. Scott May 4. The purpose of HB 313 is to provide more opportunities for the public to enjoy outdoor recreation by extending limited liability protection to landowners who allow the public onto their lands for outdoor recreational purposes. For the public, the legislation will increase the likelihood there will be more lands available where they can enjoy a number of outdoor activities such as shing, swimming, hunting and camping to name a few. For landowners who dont want to lease land to the government for public use, this bill allows them to make a simplied legal arrangement a written agreement with the state to use their land for outdoor recreation and still receive limited liability protection. The bill also gives landowners the option of receiving limited liability protection if they want to allow access to individuals or smaller groups of people, such as church, veterans or Boy Scout groups, primarily for wildlife shing or hunting. All the landowners have to do to receive limited liability protection is to give written notice or post notice to those using the land that the landowner has limitation of liability, and to allow free access to those who will use the land (no charge, no prot).

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, May 17, 2012 Passion for Preservation. Carrie Kienzle, who directed this years twoday event, said ticket sales were in the 900 range, with about half of them presales. Thats unheard of, if we usually did 200, she said. We did another 300 or more on the day of event. She said once complimentary tickets are gured in, we feel condent we did well over 800, and probably close to 900. It was very, very successful. The event opened with a cocktail party May 10, in which Cornerstone Awards, created by the Apalachicola Area Historical Society, were presented to Lynn Wilson Spohrer and Cathy and Lee Willis for their work with preservation. In addition, the newly created Passion for Preservation award was given to the city of Apalachicola for its restoration of the Holy Family School. Our intention is to award the best new commercial or public project for that year, completed in that calendar year, from May to May, Kienzle said. She said a committee of representatives from Trinity Episcopal Church, the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Apalachicola, the historical society and the city made the choice after reviewing ve applicants. In addition, James G. Cusick, curator for special collections at the George A. Smathers Library at the University of Florida, presented Mayor Van Johnson with a framed replica of the 1834 city map, which the city has entrusted to the university for safekeeping. Friday began with breakfast at Trinitys vicarage, followed by a lecture by architect Willoughby Marshall, a patriarch of local preservation efforts and author of Apalachicola: Economic Development through Historic Preservation. He detailed his efforts to preserve the historic integrity of the Apalachicola Museum of Art, formerly the Fry-Conter House. Against a backdrop of Neal Smith-Willow paintings celebrating local culture, he also spoke to the strides the community, in general, made in the last quarter of the 20th century and dawn of the 21st. Symposium-goers in a otilla of golf carts then made their way to the Holy Family School in Franklin Square, recently reborn as Holy Family Senior Center, where three eminent scholars discussed historic renovation and government review. Anita Grove, director of the Apalachicola Area Bay Chamber of Commerce, moderated the forum. Beth LaCivita of Historic Florida Consulting LLC gave the rst presentation. A former executive director of Tallahassees local historic preservation board, she has more than 20 years of professional experience in historical administration and education and historic preservation. She told listeners there is much misinformation about historic preservation, and to preserve the integrity of historic structures, one must know the history of the community and identify key local architectural components. Find the keepers of the documents, she said. LaCivita also supported government guidance for preservation. An architectural review board is an important consultant for city government today, she said. She advised historic communities to seek admission to the Certied Local Government program, a preservation partnership between local, state and national governments focused on promoting historic preservation at the grassroots level. The program is jointly administered by the National Park Service and the State Historic Preservation Ofces. There is a special pot of federal money available to CLG members, LaCivita said, adding that Apalachicola is a prime candidate for the honor. The state loves this town, she said. LaCivita was followed to the podium by architect Warren Emo, principal of award winning EMO/ Architects Inc., who professed a 20-year love affair with Apalachicola. He advised preservationist to start with the town plan when planning a restoration project. He also spoke in support of government review and guidelines for restoration. Guidelines scare people to death because it seems like too much government, but you need some kind of a foundation, he said. He outlined the numerous styles of architecture featured in Apalachicolas neighborhoods, ranging from the humble shotgun shack to imposing Second Empire to elegant Queen Anne. He paid special tribute to the Gulf Coast cottage, designed to withstand the rigors of heat and wind imposed by the coastal environment. The nal presentation came from Charles Olson, a registered Georgia and Florida architect whose private rm, Olson Architects Inc., specializes in hunting plantations, residential architecture, historic preservation and small commercial projects. He is a board member and past president of Thomasville Landmarks Inc. and past chair of the Thomasville Historic Preservation Commission. He said he grew up spending summers in St. Teresa and admiring the historic architecture of Apalachicola. I worked with Willoughby in the 1980s, he said. Who would have known 20 years later the progress you would have made? He warned of the dangers of backsliding in preservation programs, and he, too, is a fan of government-mandated design guidelines. Apalachicola is the real thing, but theres no guarantee it wont go away, he said. Design guidelines are scary, he said. But its been established nationwide that design guidelines protect property values, increase property values and stabilize an area. He pointed out that historic guidelines often are less restrictive than the guidelines in newer developments and talked about the sort of documentation useful to the restorer, including insurance maps that trace the metamorphosis of a building over time. He said one common misconception about restoration is that a structure must be restored to its original form. He used as an example a home built circa 1880 but restored to its 1920 form. Following a lively question and answer session, the gulf cart eet moved on to lunch at the Owl Caf and a lecture by Debbie Beard on cracker houses. The afternoon was topped off by a tour of historic Orman House, for the three dozen participants. On Saturday, the Bickel home at 96 Sixth St. was featured on the tour, which also included the Tartt Home (25 Fifth Ave.); Marks/Clark Home (65 Ave. E); Martin House (29 Fifth Ave.); SeatonSchley Home (50 Fifth St.); Monod Home (79 Ave. G); Smith-McCoy Home (76 Ave. G); Jones Home (121 Ave. B); and Emo Home (67 Ave. C). Along with the Trinity Church Memorial Garden, featured were the Williar Garden (31 Ninth St.); Suarez Garden (59 Ave. G); and the Vogt Garden (87 Ave. D). No one was disappointed in the featured home; it delivered what we advertised, Kienzle said. We also expected people to really nd Ouida Tartts house charming and vernacular, the way she incorporated the old house with a new structure. She said all the homes drew praise, but the sleeper on the tour that many people said they liked was the Shell Cottage, the former Floyd home, which had undergone a lot of renovation. Mike and Tracy Jones have a lumber plantation in family, and the wood in (the) house drew them into it, Kienzle said. The whole interior is rstgeneration wood. Kienzle said people on the tour were impressed with the Williar garden, mainly because of his vast array of tools. His shed is very large, and he had it opened and every tool arranged by size and type and hanging from the wall. It is a thing of beauty, she said.

These attacks that take place through SMS text message technologies to personal mobile phones are scams and are in no way sponsored by or af liated with these abovementioned stores. This type of scam has come to be known as Smishing because of the use of SMS text technology. Similar to the way scam websites send Phishing emails, scam artists have been sending text messages offering free gift cards to consumers in exchange for entering information on a mobile website. The most popular website being used recently is called walmartgift.mobi, a site that is neither owned, operated by or af liated with Wal-Mart. Any site can be used for this scam and users are often asked for private personal information including credit card or Social Security numbers. Providing this type of information is very likely to lead to identity theft or credit card fraud. The sheriffs of ce stressed that legitimate businesses will never initiate a text message where they ask for sensitive personal data like credit card information or Social Security numbers. If you receive a questionable e-mail or text messages, it is advised that you disregard or call the sheriffs of ce at 670-8500 to report this activity. FWC of cer nails escapee Earlier this month, Florida Fish and Wildlife Of cer Hank Forehand was traveling down Highway 20 in Liberty County, while on duty at 11 p.m., when he observed a subject walking in the direction of Hosford. He stopped and talked with the subject who acted suspiciously. After several attempts, the of cer obtained the subjects correct name and determined he was wanted for escaping from the Department of Corrections Work Camp in Leon County. Forehand arrested the subject and the Liberty County Sheriffs Of ce transported him to jail.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin Countys jobless rate continued its steady improvement in March, falling by 0.6 of a percentage point to 6.6 percent even as the workforce expanded. According to preliminary numbers released April 20 by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, 21 people dropped off the countys jobless rolls in March, from 389 down to 368, while the labor force expanded, from 5,405 to 5,561. The countys labor force remains even larger than it was one year ago, when it comprised 5,513 workers, and when the jobless rate was higher, at 7.7 percent. Franklin Countys jobless picture moved it into a tie with Alachua and Leon counties for fourth best in the state. Monroe County had the states lowest rate, at 5.1 percent, followed by Walton at 5.7 and Okaloosa at 6.1. Many of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions of government employment. The countys rosier jobless picture corresponded to improvement in nearby counties, both of which are struggling with worse unemployment than Franklins. For the fourth straight month the jobless rate in the Gulf Coast Workforce region (Bay, Franklin and Gulf counties) declined, dropping to 8.1 percent in March 2012. The March 2012 rate was 1.8 percentage points lower than the regions year ago rate of 9.9 percent and below the state rate of 8.6 percent. Out of a labor force of 101,479, there were 8,280 unemployed Gulf Coast residents. This is the third year in a row that weve seen the unemployment drop from February to March, said Kim Bodine, executive director for the Gulf Coast Workforce Board. We feel that the positive trend is holding. Unemployment in Bay and Gulf counties both fell below 9 percent, with Bay dropping by more than 1 percent point, from 9.2 to 8.1 percent, and Gulf tumbling by about 1 percentage point, to 9.4 from 8.5. In March 2012, there were 73,900 nonagricultural jobs in the Panama City-Lynn Haven-Panama City Beach metro area (Bay County), down 100 jobs for the year. This metro area experienced an annual rate of job loss of 0.1 percent, while the state gained jobs at a rate of 1.2 percent. The industry sectors adding the most jobs during the year were leisure and hospitality (400 jobs); government (200 jobs); and trade, transportation, and utilities and education and health services (100 jobs each). The gains were offset by losses in mining, logging, and construction (500 jobs); professional and business services (300 jobs); and nancial activities (100 jobs). The employment growth rate in leisure and hospitality (3.1 percent); and government (1.3) exceeded state growth rates. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 9.0 percent in March 2012, the lowest since January 2009, and comprising 836,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9.28 million. The March 2012 rate fell 0.4 percentage point from the month-ago rate of 9.4 percent: the largest over-the-month decline in the states jobless rate since October 1992. The March 2012 rate was 1.7 percentage points lower than the year-ago rate of 10.7 percent. The U.S. unemployment rate was 8.2 percent in March. Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7.33 million in March 2012, an increase of 10,800 jobs (0.1 percent) over the month. The number of jobs in the state was up 89,800 during the year, an increase of 1.2 percent from March 2011. Nationally, the number of jobs was up 1.5 percent during the year. March was the 20th consecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for three years. The industry gaining the most jobs was trade, transportation, and utilities (30,400 jobs, 2.1 percent). Other industries gaining jobs included professional and business services (26,300 jobs, 2.5 percent); private education and health services (24,800 jobs, 2.3 percent); leisure and hospitality (+23,300 jobs, +2.5 percent); nancial activities (5,800 jobs, 1.2 percent); manufacturing (3,300 jobs, 1.1 percent); and other services (2,200 jobs, 0.7 percent). These industry job gains were partially due to increases in food and beverage stores; employment services; ambulatory health care services; food services and drinking places; real estate; fabricated metal product manufacturing; and personal and laundry services. Industries losing jobs over the year included construction (13,500 jobs, 4.0 percent), total government (12,000 jobs, 1.1 percent), and information (700 jobs, 0.5 percent). These industry job losses partially were a result of losses in specialty trade contractors, state government, and telecommunications.

The association made the announcement at the April 18 opening ceremony of its annual conference. Greene was selected as the Florida State University Library Schools student to receive this $2,000 award, which will help defray the estimated $18,000 cost of the degree. Greene, who is nancing the degree on her own, became library director in March 2009. She then decided she liked the job so much she wanted to earn a masters degree in library science to ensure she will be able to work in this eld until she retires. She said Library Board Chairwoman Susan Clementson and board member Carrie Kienzle, both retired librarians, encouraged her to apply. Greene said it is quite the experience to start graduate school at age 60, but she is having fun and maintaining an almost perfect 4.0 grade point average. Special to the Times Tallahassee writer Elizabeth StuckeyFrench, author of the highly acclaimed novel The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady, will sign books and greet fans from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at Downtown Books. The novel, which earned rave reviews from a slew of publications, from the New York Times and the New Yorker to the San Francisco Chronicle, won the 2011 silver Florida Book Award for general ction and is this months Apalachicola Book Club selection. In this dark comedy wrapped inside a wacky family drama, a vengeful old lady is hellbent on murdering an even older man who has lost his mind. Seventy-sevenyear-old Marylou Ahearn aims to kill Dr. Wilson Spriggs, who, back in 1953, gave her a radioactive cocktail, without her consent, as part of a secret government study that had horrible consequences. Maylou has been plotting revenge for 50 years when she accidentally discovers his whereabouts. She hightails it to Tallahassee, moves down the block from where a now-senile Spriggs lives with his daughters family, and sets about the tricky work of insinuating herself into their lives. But she has no idea what a nest of yellow jackets she has stumbled into. Before the novel is over, someone will be kidnapped, an unlikely couple will get engaged, and someone will eat upside-down cake laced with antifreeze. And thats not the half of it. Told from the varied perspectives of its oddball characters, Radioactive Lady is an intricately plotted, laugh out loud funny, surprisingly touching family drama that combines the wit of Carl Hiaasen with the Southern charm of Jill McCorkle. Stuckey-French also has written the novel Mermaids on the Moon and The First Paper Girl in Red Oaks, Iowa, a short-story collection. She was awarded a James Michener Fellowship and has won grants from the Howard Foundation, the Indiana Arts Foundation, and the Florida Arts Foundation. She teaches ction writing at Florida State University. For details, call Downtown Books at 653-1290. Dez turns 5 Dezmonae LaShay Sanders turns 5 years old Tuesday, May 22, 2012.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com O UTDOORS www.apalachtimes.com Section Section A By TOM R. MACKENZIE Special to the Times Several conservation organizations are seeking protection for the eastern diamond rattler. On May 9, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFW) announced a 90-day public comment period or nding on a petition to list the eastern diamondback rattlesnake as threatened and designate critical habitat for the species under the Endangered Species Act. The petition was submitted last summer by the Center for Biological Diversity, the Coastal Plains Institute Inc., Protecting all Living Species and One More Generation. If the nding determines the petition presents strong information indicating this rattlesnake is endangered, USFW will undertake a more comprehensive review of the snakes status throughout the species range to determine whether listing is warranted. Eastern diamondbacks can grow to a length of more than eight feet and are the largest rattlesnakes in the world. The eastern diamondback historically ranged along the coastal lowlands of the southeastern United States from North Carolina to eastern Louisiana, including all of Florida and its Keys. Although once abundant in longleaf pine ecosystems across the southeastern United States, its population size and range has declined. Nearly all of the old growth longleaf pine savannas are gone, and the eastern diamondback survives wherever its native habitats still exist or where open-canopy forests and grasslands are similar to longleaf pine savannas. USFW is asking for information from state and federal natural resource agencies and all interested parties regarding the eastern diamondback rattlesnake and its habitat. Based on the status review, the Service will make one of three possible determinations: They may decide the listing is not warranted, in which case no further action will be taken. The diamondback also may be listed as threatened or endangered. In this case, USFW will publish a proposal to list, solicit independent scienti c peer review of the proposal, seek input from the public and consider the input before a nal decision about listing the species is made. In general, there is a oneyear period between the time a species is proposed for listing and the nal decision. They may determine the listing is warranted but precluded by other, higher priority activities. This means the species is added to the federal list of candidate species, and the proposal to list is deferred while USFW works on listing proposals for other species that are at greater risk.

MacKenzie is the media relations specialist and Native American liaison for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Southeast Region By VALERIE GARMAN 229-7843 | @valeriegarman vgarman@star .com Wetsuit, check. Air tank, check. Mask, check. Area divers soon will be adding passport to their equipment checklists as they dive the new Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, set to launch in late May. Through the development of the trail, divers will be able to track their underwater journeys in Northwest Florida by passport in an effort by the Florida Division of Historical Resources to bring divers to the Panhandle again and again. It will feature 12 shipwrecks, starting in Pensacola and ending with the wreck of the Vamar in Port St. Joe. Lindsay Smith, an underwater archaeologist with the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research, is part of a small team developing the trail through a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The shipwrecks are amazing, theres just a wonderful variety (in the Panhandle), said Smith, who noted it was dif cult to pinpoint only 12 wrecks. Theyre all very close together and theres just so many to choose from. There are tons of wrecks in the Panhandle, and were only highlighting 12 of them. Smith said the ultimate goal in the development of the trail is to help boost the dive economy throughout the region. The Panhandle has a very strong diving community, Smith said. As far as scuba shops, theres probably about 20. The idea for the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail came from State Underwater Archaeologist Roger Smith. He thought it would be a great thing for the Panhandle because tourism kind of lagged after the oil spill, Smith said. Were really hoping to get some return tourism and invigorate the local dive communities. Smith and the team of underwater archaeologists also are developing a website, which will be complete with underwater photography and video footage of the Panhandle wrecks featured and links to the dive shops on each leg of the trail. Because of the enthusiastic response the team has received for the Shipwreck Trail, the team assembled some 25 to 30 hours of underwater video footage for all of the trail candidates, as well as historic photographs. The site will feature 13 short videos, the rst introducing the trail and passport and one highlighting each wreck. The passports are in the nal stages of development, and Smith said they are hoping to distribute the passports to area dive shops and launch the new website before Memorial Day at the end of this month. The passport will serve as a marketing tool, dive log and souvenir and will hopefully encourage return visitation to the Panhandle area, said Smith. Divers will log visibility, water temperature and weather conditions, pressure and dive time, and record their dive buddy and charter boat from each dive. Dive shops and charter boats will have the opportunity to offer the passport to divers for a small registration fee to participate in the trail, with a registration form to provide information about each passport holder. The shops and boats each will carry an of cial stamp to verify each dive completed on the trail to be paired with the signature of the captain on the passport. Before the project came to fruition, Smith said the group of underwater archaeologists rst needed to speak with area dive shop owners in order to see what type of project would be most bene cial. After the NOAA grant was received, we decided to go into the different communities and gauge interest, Smith said. We went and talked to local dive shop owners about what their customers look for in dive trips. Smith said the response from local shop owners about the development of a shipwreck trail was phenomenal. The team collected 22 shipwreck nominations from the owners and narrowed it down to 12, making sure there were dives for every skill level. The Florida Keys has a similar Wreck Trek, but Smith said the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will operate a bit differently. They have a much larger number of dive shops, Smith said about the Keys. The visibility (in the Panhandle) isnt the same as the Keys, but the wrecks are close enough to shore to still allow for great underwater visibility. Were looking at it a little bit differently, because we want to track how the sites are being used and who is diving them. Smith said the team plans on utilizing social networking sites like Facebook to allow divers to share their experiences and get in touch with other people who dive the trail. The website will also play an integral part in the development and promotion of the trail. The Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will feature ve Pensacola wrecks: USS Oriskany, San Pablo (Russian Freighter), Pete Tide II, YDT 14 and 15 (Navy tenders), and Three Barges; ve off the coast of Panama City: Black Bart, USS Strength, FAMI Twin Tugs, USS Accokeek and USS Cheppewa; the Miss Louise in Destin; and Port St. Joes wreck of the Vamar will serve as the easternmost stop on the dive trail. The Vamar is one of Floridas 11 designated underwater archaeological preserves. The ship wrecked under mysterious circumstances in World War II-era Port St. Joe in 1942, and now rests on the ocean oor near the tip of St. Joseph Peninsula. Resting in only 25 feet of water, the Vamar is often considered one of the best shallow water dives on the Emerald Coast. As noted by the Bureau of Archaeological Research, divers can explore the ships steam engine, bilge keels and rudder quadrant and investigate the mystery of the wreck. A plaque will soon be sunk as the last step in designating the wreck of the Vamar as a state underwater preserve. The wreck was dedicated an underwater preserve back in 2004. I think the Shipwreck Trail kind of renewed the interest in getting that plaque down there, Smith said. In order for a wreck to become an underwater preserve, Smith said, it must be nominated by a local group interested in recognizing the site. It comes from a community level, where the people come together and want to recognize a speci c site, Smith said. Its all done with public support and volunteer work.

CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA SP O RTS www.apalachtimes.com A Section By JOSH WRIGHT Special to the Times With springtime winding down the Franklin County Seahawks, along with the every other high school football team in Florida, have been participating in spring football. The squad has been at it since May 1 and the season will conclude tonight with a threeway Jamboree in Port St. Joe between Franklin County and the two Gulf County programs. Each team will play one another for a full half of football each. Franklin plays Wewahitchka in the opening half and then faces St. Joe in the second half. In the third half, St. Joe and Wewa wrap things up with a friendly county rivalry match that will produce some summer bragging rights. Every program in Florida is using this time period to develop a depth chart and build momentum heading into the summer workouts. Our staff has been pleasantly surprised with the installation of our spread offense and our 3-5 defensive inserts. We have actually done both at different times in the past three years, but feel both packages t our personnel. The spring season will also reveal some offseason changes as St. Joe hired a new head coach in Chuck Gannon and assigned a new offensive coordinator Tracy Browning. Wewa will have a new fefensive coordinator David Barnes and a new offensive line coach Stuart Vines. The Seahawks have been trying to recruit experienced coach Jason Kay to come to the area and be part of the Seahawk family as well. The attitude and work pace has been very positive and the weather has really cooperated with us. Our primary focus this Thursday will be on effort and tenacity. We feel that taking a good look at an exciting offensive scheme like the spread and a defensive scheme like the 35 in the spring de nitely gives us the opportunity to take what we like about them and discard what we dont. The staff is de nitely working hard to give the Franklin County fans something to be proud of and something to cheer about and they hope to see all the fans there Thursday night in St. Joe for kickoff. Tonights Jamboree is set for 7 p.m. EST at Tiger Shark eld. Josh Wright is the head coach of the Franklin County Seahawks football team.

F WC asks for help in chipmunk research Eastern chipmunks are thought to live in only a few locations in Northwest Florida but researchers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are asking anyone who has spotted one to report the sighting. Wildlife biologist Chris Winchester said information may be recorded at https://public. myfwc.com/hsc/chipmunk/ getlatlong.aspx. Smaller than a gray squirrel, the Eastern chipmunk is slightly reddish in color and has white and black stripes running down its back and light stripes above its eyes. Winchester said researchers are especially interested in new sighting data, but would also like information on on older sightings.

The theme of the Summer Reading Program will be Dream Big, READ, and will be presented in collaboration with the Apalachicola Municipal Library. This program is developed by the 2012 Summer Collaborative Reading Program and the state library system. Students can earn rewards for their reading time through the summer while helping to boost their skills for the next school year. Highlights for the summer include a Traditional Boat Building Workshop with Apalachicola Maritime Museum, Kids College with the Gulf Coast State College, and this years special guest, the Center for Puppetry Arts from Atlanta, Georgia. Project Impact, in collaboration with the Apalachicola Maritime Museum, will offer a wooden boat building program this summer, boats rock! It is a six-week program and will be held at the workshop of the Maritime Museum in conjunction with the Project Impact Summer Camp. The students will build a sailing dinghy, learn to sail, and will also learn about the history and ecology of our beautiful area. Students must apply with their site Coordinator to participate with only six students selected for this inaugural program. At the end of the program students will be treated to a sailing trip aboard the AMMs beautiful sail boat, the Heritage. For a second year a special Sizzlin Summer Scholars program for teens and pre-teens is planned in collaboration with Gulf Coast Community College through the Kids College outreach project. The program will include science, technology, health science, and the visual, performing, and culinary arts curriculum. GCCC has a new Advanced Technology Center where students will learn about the latest in the green sciences and engineering with many hands-on learning experiences. Students from both sites will participate in activities at Project Impact in Apalachicola and then attend special classes at the Panama City GCCC Campus during four eld trips where they will have an opportunity to see themselves in a campus setting and get a feel for life as college students. The Project Impact Summer Theater Program will host a very special guest as resident artist, Jeffrey Zwartjes from the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. Zwartjes will join the Project Impact staff to present a week-long workshop for students in puppetry. Students will learn about the history of puppetry and puppets from around the world, and will work with the guest artist to write their own script, build their own puppets, and present a public performance on June 28 at the City Recreational site. Program hours are 8 am to 4 pm, Mondays through Thursdays beginning June 11 and running through July 26. The program will be closed for the Fourth of July week. Students must be between Pre-K (at least age 4), and no older than the 12th grade for next school year to enroll in the camp. Other summer programs offered will include pottery, arts, crafts, sports, sewing, computer technology and a eld trip each Thursday! The Project Impact Summer Program is provided free of charge. Families may enroll their child in Project Impact at either the ABC or City Recreational sites or online at projectimpactfcs.org. For more information, call Faye Johnson, program director, at 370-0145. Project Impact is funded by the 21st Century Community Learning Centers. Big plans for Project Impact summer camp By TAMARA ALLEN Special to the Times The number one tourist attraction in Carrabelle got a facelift last month The Worlds Smallest Police Station was looking tired, faded and the old stick-on letters were even peeling off, so the city of Carrabelle used Tourist Development Council tax money to spruce up the famous landmark. They hired Bob Sauls, of Sauls Signs in Tallahassee, to do the job the old-fashioned way, by hand-painting lettering on the glass as it was done it in 1953 when Police Chief Albin Westberg had the rst sign painted. Sauls was tickled pink to be included in the police station make-over. This town has been very helpful to me. The old school handlettering that was implemented for the History Museum sign and now the Worlds Smallest Police Station allowed me to get back in touch with my roots as a sign painter, he said. It was all hand skills and knowledge, not computergenerated graphics back then. All of the methods and typefaces chosen were what you would have expected to see in their day. A bench with a little landscaping under the shade of the chinaberry tree will complete the project, along with a sign explaining how Carrabelle got its famous police station. Tamara Allen is the director of Carrabelle CARES. TAMARA ALLEN | Special to the Times FACELIFT FOR HISTORIC PHONE BOOTH

ELECTION 2012 TONY SHIVER By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In a urry of activity over the past week, county commissioners decided to try an interim, local solution for managing the Apalachicola Regional Airport and ended negotiations with the two outside rms that had sought to become the xed base operator. By unanimous agreement, with Cheryl Sanders patched in by telephone during her recovery from hip surgery, the commissioners voted at a May 9 special meeting to have Ted Mosteller, airport manager and chairman of the airport advisory committee, assume the duties of running the airport. The board also approved the immediate hiring of Arthur Perky White, a Gulf County resident and airplane pilot, as a temporary employee at the airport. At Tuesday mornings regular meeting, the board unanimously approved the terms of hiring the two men. White is to be paid $16 per hour for a 40-hour week, to run Thursday through Monday. As a temporary employee under Mostellers supervision, White is not eligible to receive bene ts, provided his term of employment does not exceed 6 months. Mosteller continues to receive a 1 percent administrative fee from grants as his payment, rather than an hourly salary. The decision to go with an interim solution to running the airport came at an urgent special meeting called on the By Lois Swoboda and David Adlerstein 653-8868 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The 20th annual Historic Apalachicola Home & Garden Tour on May 8 provided a new wine in old bottles, so to speak. For the rst time, the tour added a day-long symposium on Friday for serious preservationists, further underscoring this years theme, A By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In an enormous outpouring of both sadness and joy, friends and family of Vicky Harris Segree celebrated her life May 8 in an over ow service at Apalachicolas First Pentecostal Holiness Church, where she dedicated her faith. Segree died in a head-on collision May 2 on the Gorrie bridge while she and a friend, Sabrina Sanders Hicks, were returning home from church services. They were part of a queue of church members from Eastpoint that made the trek each Wednesday night to and from the Brownsville Road church. Charges are pending against Chandler Moses, the 19-yearold driver of a pickup truck investigators believe crossed the center line and veered directly into Segrees Kia. Moses sustained serious injuries and was taken to Bay Medical Center, where he has since been treated and released. Hicks was taken to Weems Memorial Hospital, and it was hours before her family could join her because of the traf c detour. Hicks, who did not have a car to get to church, rode regularly with Segree, a close personal friend and mentor. When she went out of this world, we were praising and worshipping God.

I was raised in Eastpoint and graduated from Carrabelle High School. In addition to living in Eastpoint, I lived in Apalachicola eight years, and since 1990 I have resided on St George Island. I worked in the commercial seafood industry until just under the age of 30. During that time, I completed training as a correctional of cer and served with the Franklin County Sheriffs Department.

Im sad because I miss her, I miss her dearly. She was a great friend. Pastor Susan Roach, who of ciated at the funeral service, said only about half of the 600 people in attendance were able to t into the sanctuary, with the rest seated in the hallways, the social hall and the nursery, where Segree long had devoted herself to the churchs children. Vicky was the type of person, she always acknowledged children and spoke to them and made sure they felt important, Roach said. She was one of the most precious people Ive ever known. You never heard a downside from Vicky, never negative remarks. Beyond her work in the nursery and as a crew leader with the vacation Bible school, Segree served with the womens ministry and was an important mentor to Hicks, the leader of that outreach. She helped me a lot behind the scenes, Hicks said. She helped a lot of people by just loving and caring. She always had a kind word for everyone; she ministered to a lot of lost souls. Roach said what stood out about Segrees Christianity was her ability to gently reach out to others. She had the ability where she didnt come off with a self-righteous attitude. She could just talk to you so you didnt feel like you had been bombarded. You were just cordially invited. We have people in our church who have looked at me and told me, Shes the reason Im here. She invited them, Roach said. The pastor said Segree was active as a Prayer Warrior, praying on others behalf. She was someone you could call, and shed pray for whatever was going on, Roach said. If she had not been the victim, she would have been one of the ones who would be praying for people who were having trouble. Segrees work triggered a lighthearted memory from Roach about the last prayer intercessor meeting Segree attended. The pastor had asked for a prayer on behalf of her grandsons Dixie Youth League team, and Segree was prepared to begin, before stopping to ask, Well now, Sister Roach, what team does he play on, and whos he playing? I looked at her and said, We have a con ict dont we? Roach said. She had grandchildren playing that night. When we established the fact that it was not her grandsons team, she was in agreement with me. She wasnt going to agree in prayer against her grandson. Hicks said that after God, Segree put her family rst. She loved God above anybody and anything, she said. Her family meant the world to her. She would have done anything for her family. Hicks described the services, which included music by the praise teams from both First Pentecostal and the Eastpoint Church of God, as the best service she had ever been to, and one that gave her closure to this terrifying episode. Even though I was there (in the accident) and I knew what happened, it was not that real to me. It was like I was in a daze, a nightmare that I couldnt come out of. The celebration was a celebration of life that she went home. Like those in the Harris family, Hicks said she offered forgiveness and support to the Moses family. My prayers go out to them, she said. Everybody makes mistake, everybody has accidents. Nobody knows what caused him to hit us. I cant imagine the suffering that hes going through, not only because hes physically injured, but hes mentally injured. My heart goes out to them as well as the Segree family. Florida Highway Patrol traf c homicide supervisor Sgt. Aaron B. Stephens said investigators are awaiting results of mandatory toxicology tests performed on both drivers. He said a toxicology screen performed on Moses the night of the crash at Weems Memorial Hospital was negative, but the results are not considered nal. The 9:20 p.m. accident shut down vehicle traf c between Eastpoint and Apalachicola until about 3 a.m., as the Florida Highway Patrol and law enforcement personnel continued their careful investigation into what had happened, making sure debris was left intact and the tire marks were not obscured. Stephens said once the autopsy reports are in and he and fellow of cers have reviewed investigators ndings, including cellphone records, it will be up to the states attorney of ce to determine what the next step will be. Stephens declined comment on Moses traf c record, including two tickets the 19-year-old received earlier that day citing him with running a stop sign and not wearing his seatbelt. On May 11, Moses paid a total of $266 in nes and was given until Aug. 9 to complete traf c school for those earlier citations.

Local The Times | A3 Thursday, May 17, 2012 eve of a deadline to sign a deal with Fly High, the rm whose bid was at the head of the line to become the new FBO. Chairman Pinki Jackel made it clear at the meetings outset that the county was not facing a rumored $10,000-per-day ne from the Federal Aviation Administration for security violations. Alan Pierce, the countys director of administrative services, said the airport has restored a secure perimeter, including use of the keypad gate entrance. Former FBO Bill Ruic vacated his post over the May 4-6 weekend, reportedly disgruntled over the countys decision not to renew his deal. Mosteller said there had been no vandalism at the airport, but that Ruic had refused to turn over a list of who was renting the Thangars. Last month, Ruic shut down the fuel farm and disconnected the phones in advance of his departure, leaving the airport without important services and serving as a deterrent for many pilots who learned through FAA noti cations that the airport was now little more than a paved landing eld. In addition, Ruic had removed several light xtures he insisted were his, but arguably are owned by the county, which had offset a portion of his rent in exchange for the long-term improvements. Commissioners wasted little time in stressing the urgency of the situation. We need it up and running, Bevin Putnal said. Every day that we lose, were losing business that we may not get back, were losing money and were losing customers. I dont like that. We should have done this before we ever negotiated a contract. We should have hired someone to keep it running. A lot of this is our fault for not acting soon enough, he said. This should have been taken care of months ago, Sanders said. We have a lot of people that depend on this airport. Weve got to get this open there. We have a responsibility to people to go and get this thing done. Replenishing supplies to the ve-year-old fuel farm was tops on the list of priorities. Pierce said Ruic had installed a credit card machine, but did not offer selfservice fuel. What is left there still has to have a phone line, Pierce said. The nearest phone line is a half-mile away. But even without that we can still pump gas, and even without a credit card machine gas can be charged. In addition to hiring the two men to step in and run the airport, the commissioners approved spending at least $70,000 to $80,000 to purchase fuel and to lease two trucks, one for aviation fuel and one for jet fuel, to get the airport up and running. At Tuesday mornings meeting, Pierce said he, County Attorney Michael Shuler, Mosteller and White had met with a prospective fuel supplier, Perry Brothers, who proposed a 6-month arrangement to provide fuel and fuel trucks. We also asked them to inspect our fuel farm so that it can meet the industry standard of a branded fuel, in this case Phillips Petroleum, which would enable Phillips to provide additional liability insurance for their products, Pierce said. With the commissioners approval, Shuler said the fuel tanks would be lled later this week and, following inspection and employee training, fuel could be pumped as early as rst thing next week. I do have a good feeling about them. I have no reason to think they will not play fairly with us, Shuler said of the small, regional supply rm. They are hoping to become the future provider, but they have not been promised that. Pierce said the county will tack on $1 more per gallon than what it pays for the fuel, which last year brought in about $80,000. Also at Tuesdays meeting, the commissioners unanimously agreed to set rates for the T-hangars at $100 less per month than what Ruic had been charging, in an effort to attract tenants to ll the 17 of 34 hangars that are now vacant. The monthly rates are now $250 for the large hangars and $200 for the small hangars. No agreement reached with bidders At the special meeting last week, commissioners remained sharply divided about which of the two top bidders Fly High out of Lexington, N.C., and Grace Industries, out of Greensboro, Tenn. they should go with to strike a long-term deal. Smokey Parrish began the discussion by saying he had talked with Graces James Lawrence and that he had expressed interest in signing a contract based on the terms negotiated by the board. He would accept that contract as is and go out and start services there, Parrish said, noting that White had agreed to work for Grace. The main thing is to get it up and running, White said. I can go pump gas now. If I can do it alone, theres no reason to have anyone else there. The main thing is service. You already got something there thats an economic engine already. Jackel expressed skepticism, noting that Lawrence had no experience running an airport. We agreed to lease him a hangar, and he has yet to sign a contract. He cant even sign a hangar lease, and he has no experience running an FBO, she said. Theres been a lot of communication as to his stability, as to his wherewithal and the record he has currently in the area hes working now. Theres been a lot of information put out on this gentleman; Im not sure about this. I dont want to just jump to the next thing, she said. We need to immediately get fuel pumping, and we can worry about a long-term 20-year contract later on. I think Ruic has made a big mess of things. We need to do business with someone who is stable. That is my concern. We dont want to be back here a year from now with a failed contract. Parrishs motion to ink a deal with Grace was defeated 2-3, with only him and Noah Lockley in support. The commissioners also had dif culties with Fly High. From the beginning Ive been impressed by Fly High. The guy seems to know about how to run an airport, said Chuck Marks, a member of the airport advisory board. Theres too much risk for them to sign the lease contract at this point. But the commissioners expressed no interest in signing a deal to hire Fly High as an independent contractor on an interim basis, with monthly fees amounting to at least about $7,000 not including other ancillary expenses such as lodging. Hes willing to date but not get married, Shuler said of the proposal. If Im going to run an airport, Im going to be down there looking, Lockley said. He (Fly High) should be there showing his interest. These people are not interested to me, and at 5 p.m. Im not going to be interested in him. Sanders was sympathetic to Fly Highs concerns and moved to continue talks with the company, a motion that passed 3-2 with Parrish and Lockley opposed. I dont blame Fly High if they have a problem with it. They have no fuel, and they have no security, she said. (It would be different) had we done everything were supposed to do as a county, had we done everything to ensure a smooth transition. I dont think we have. I do not think we have made this an easy process for Fly High. Weve probably made this fairly dif cult. At Tuesdays meeting, Shuler said negotiations with Fly High had ended, with the company no longer interested in a deal. Pierce said the FBO is being repainted this week and that he had authorized $5,300 for new carpeting and $3,000 for a phone system that will be owned by the county. Call Now!

Steve Southerland II has applauded this past weeks House approval of an amendment that he introduced to prohibit federal funding for the expansion of Limited Access Privilege Programs, or catch shares, for sheries along the Gulf Coast and Atlantic seaboard. Southerlands amendment to the FY2013 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Act was approved by a bipartisan 220191 margin. Today marks an important milestone in our ght to advance freedom for our sheries, said Southerland. By gifting a select few with a stake of the annual allowable catch, catch shares amount to nothing less than a capand-trade management system that privatizes access to once open waterways. I am pleased that a strong bipartisan majority of my House colleagues joined me in standing with our shermen and opposing the federal governments efforts to pick winners and losers in our sheries. Southerland was joined in introducing his amendment by Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY). House OKs Southerlands catch share amendment Special to the Times Just in time for Mothers Day, a new national poll of American mothers nds that 71 percent support school vouchers for all children to get the best education possible. The poll, conducted April 1724, asked mothers of school-aged children and other adults in a statistically representative national survey how they feel about education in their communities and school choice. A resounding 71 percent of moms said they believe school vouchers should be available to all families regardless of income or special needs. Scholars debate whether educational options should only be offered to low-income children or those in failing schools, or to all children. According to data compiled by Braun Research Inc., most moms agree with Nobel laureate Milton Friedman who believed that educational choice should be available to all children. Only 30 percent of mothers said that vouchers should be based on nancial need compared to 71 percent of moms who said they should be available to all families, regardless of incomes and special needs. Of those mothers who offered specic grades (A to F), 65 percent of Moms graded their area public schools A or B compared to 83 percent of moms who gave the same high marks to parochial or private schools. The poll also asked mothers and other adults to grade their local public schools, charter schools and private schools. Poll nds moms support school vouchers Special to the Times Floridas real estate market outlook improved in the rst quarter of 2012, according to the University of Florida. The Survey of Emerging Market Conditions, conducted quarterly by the Kelley A. Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies at UFs Warrington College of Business Administration, revealed that those in the real estate business felt optimistic because of the falling unemployment rate and because they see more activity in rental housing, such as lease signings. The unemployment rate dropped from 9.9 percent in December 2011 to 9 percent in March. Positive outlooks for occupancy and rent growth along with an improving employment trend are increasing our respondents optimism about the real estate markets in Florida, said Timothy S. Becker, director of the Bergstrom Center. The UF Commercial Real Estate Sentiment Index, a measure of the respondents own business outlook, reached its highest level since 2007. Bergstrom Center ofcials attributed the rise to lenders and owners sensing a better lending environment with banks as well as an improving economy. With billions of dollars of loans coming due over the next year, the increased lending activity is a welcome sign for real estate owners and investors looking for debt capital to renance quality properties, Becker said. Property fundamentals including occupancy and rental rates improved this quarter with progress in single-family and condominium development, apartments, industrial, land investment and capital availability. Occupancy expectations were rated most favorably in the premium ofce market. Respondents cited a better employment outlook as the reason for optimism. Although respondents were optimistic about the industry and the overall economy, they cited concerns about the upcoming presidential election and the state governments nancial situation. Respondents said that signicant policy changes would most likely not be in place before the November elections and not resolving those issues could lead to harsh economic results. Among those issues are the Bush tax cuts and the payroll tax break, both scheduled to expire after 2012, and $1.2 trillion in spending cuts set to take effect in 2013. Respondents also were concerned with articially low interest rates, ination and increased gas prices. Overall, the survey revealed the future for real estate in Florida looks positive, but political and economic uncertainties remain. A majority of respondents expect a slow and measured recovery until the conclusion of the presidential elections. A total of 189 Florida professional real estate analysts and investors, representing 13 urban regions of the state and up to 15 property types, participated in the survey. The survey is done for participants in the commercial real estate market in Florida. The University of Florida, one of the nations largest public universities, received $619 million in sponsored research funding in 2010-11. Through its research and other activities, UF contributes more than $8.76 billion a year to Floridas economy and has a total employment impact of more than 100,000 jobs statewide. Floridas real estate professionals optimistic about market Special to the Times State Rep. Leonard Bembry (D-Greenville) is pleased to announce the passage of CS/ CS/HB 313, the Landowner/ Premises Liability bill he sponsored during the 2012 Legislative Session. It was signed by Gov. Scott May 4. The purpose of HB 313 is to provide more opportunities for the public to enjoy outdoor recreation by extending limited liability protection to landowners who allow the public onto their lands for outdoor recreational purposes. For the public, the legislation will increase the likelihood there will be more lands available where they can enjoy a number of outdoor activities such as shing, swimming, hunting and camping to name a few. For landowners who dont want to lease land to the government for public use, this bill allows them to make a simplied legal arrangement a written agreement with the state to use their land for outdoor recreation and still receive limited liability protection. The bill also gives landowners the option of receiving limited liability protection if they want to allow access to individuals or smaller groups of people, such as church, veterans or Boy Scout groups, primarily for wildlife shing or hunting. All the landowners have to do to receive limited liability protection is to give written notice or post notice to those using the land that the landowner has limitation of liability, and to allow free access to those who will use the land (no charge, no prot). In either situation, landowners would lose the liability protection if they intentionally injure people or their property on the land. I want to thank Senator Charles Dean and Rep. W. Gregory Greg Steube of Sarasota for co-sponsoring this bill and all those who recognized that HB 313 creates a win-win situation for the public, for landowners and for the state, Bembry said.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, May 17, 2012 Passion for Preservation. Carrie Kienzle, who directed this years twoday event, said ticket sales were in the 900 range, with about half of them presales. Thats unheard of, if we usually did 200, she said. We did another 300 or more on the day of event. She said once complimentary tickets are gured in, we feel condent we did well over 800, and probably close to 900. It was very, very successful. The event opened with a cocktail party May 10, in which Cornerstone Awards, created by the Apalachicola Area Historical Society, were presented to Lynn Wilson Spohrer and Cathy and Lee Willis for their work with preservation. In addition, the newly created Passion for Preservation award was given to the city of Apalachicola for its restoration of the Holy Family School. Our intention is to award the best new commercial or public project for that year, completed in that calendar year, from May to May, Kienzle said. She said a committee of representatives from Trinity Episcopal Church, the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Apalachicola, the historical society and the city made the choice after reviewing ve applicants. In addition, James G. Cusick, curator for special collections at the George A. Smathers Library at the University of Florida, presented Mayor Van Johnson with a framed replica of the 1834 city map, which the city has entrusted to the university for safekeeping. Friday began with breakfast at Trinitys vicarage, followed by a lecture by architect Willoughby Marshall, a patriarch of local preservation efforts and author of Apalachicola: Economic Development through Historic Preservation. He detailed his efforts to preserve the historic integrity of the Apalachicola Museum of Art, formerly the Fry-Conter House. Against a backdrop of Neal Smith-Willow paintings celebrating local culture, he also spoke to the strides the community, in general, made in the last quarter of the 20th century and dawn of the 21st. Symposium-goers in a otilla of golf carts then made their way to the Holy Family School in Franklin Square, recently reborn as Holy Family Senior Center, where three eminent scholars discussed historic renovation and government review. Anita Grove, director of the Apalachicola Area Bay Chamber of Commerce, moderated the forum. Beth LaCivita of Historic Florida Consulting LLC gave the rst presentation. A former executive director of Tallahassees local historic preservation board, she has more than 20 years of professional experience in historical administration and education and historic preservation. She told listeners there is much misinformation about historic preservation, and to preserve the integrity of historic structures, one must know the history of the community and identify key local architectural components. Find the keepers of the documents, she said. LaCivita also supported government guidance for preservation. An architectural review board is an important consultant for city government today, she said. She advised historic communities to seek admission to the Certied Local Government program, a preservation partnership between local, state and national governments focused on promoting historic preservation at the grassroots level. The program is jointly administered by the National Park Service and the State Historic Preservation Ofces. There is a special pot of federal money available to CLG members, LaCivita said, adding that Apalachicola is a prime candidate for the honor. The state loves this town, she said. LaCivita was followed to the podium by architect Warren Emo, principal of award winning EMO/ Architects Inc., who professed a 20-year love affair with Apalachicola. He advised preservationist to start with the town plan when planning a restoration project. He also spoke in support of government review and guidelines for restoration. Guidelines scare people to death because it seems like too much government, but you need some kind of a foundation, he said. He outlined the numerous styles of architecture featured in Apalachicolas neighborhoods, ranging from the humble shotgun shack to imposing Second Empire to elegant Queen Anne. He paid special tribute to the Gulf Coast cottage, designed to withstand the rigors of heat and wind imposed by the coastal environment. The nal presentation came from Charles Olson, a registered Georgia and Florida architect whose private rm, Olson Architects Inc., specializes in hunting plantations, residential architecture, historic preservation and small commercial projects. He is a board member and past president of Thomasville Landmarks Inc. and past chair of the Thomasville Historic Preservation Commission. He said he grew up spending summers in St. Teresa and admiring the historic architecture of Apalachicola. I worked with Willoughby in the 1980s, he said. Who would have known 20 years later the progress you would have made? He warned of the dangers of backsliding in preservation programs, and he, too, is a fan of government-mandated design guidelines. Apalachicola is the real thing, but theres no guarantee it wont go away, he said. Design guidelines are scary, he said. But its been established nationwide that design guidelines protect property values, increase property values and stabilize an area. He pointed out that historic guidelines often are less restrictive than the guidelines in newer developments and talked about the sort of documentation useful to the restorer, including insurance maps that trace the metamorphosis of a building over time. He said one common misconception about restoration is that a structure must be restored to its original form. He used as an example a home built circa 1880 but restored to its 1920 form. Following a lively question and answer session, the gulf cart eet moved on to lunch at the Owl Caf and a lecture by Debbie Beard on cracker houses. The afternoon was topped off by a tour of historic Orman House, for the three dozen participants. On Saturday, the Bickel home at 96 Sixth St. was featured on the tour, which also included the Tartt Home (25 Fifth Ave.); Marks/Clark Home (65 Ave. E); Martin House (29 Fifth Ave.); SeatonSchley Home (50 Fifth St.); Monod Home (79 Ave. G); Smith-McCoy Home (76 Ave. G); Jones Home (121 Ave. B); and Emo Home (67 Ave. C). Along with the Trinity Church Memorial Garden, featured were the Williar Garden (31 Ninth St.); Suarez Garden (59 Ave. G); and the Vogt Garden (87 Ave. D). No one was disappointed in the featured home; it delivered what we advertised, Kienzle said. We also expected people to really nd Ouida Tartts house charming and vernacular, the way she incorporated the old house with a new structure. She said all the homes drew praise, but the sleeper on the tour that many people said they liked was the Shell Cottage, the former Floyd home, which had undergone a lot of renovation. Mike and Tracy Jones have a lumber plantation in family, and the wood in (the) house drew them into it, Kienzle said. The whole interior is rstgeneration wood. Kienzle said people on the tour were impressed with the Williar garden, mainly because of his vast array of tools. His shed is very large, and he had it opened and every tool arranged by size and type and hanging from the wall. It is a thing of beauty, she said.

These attacks that take place through SMS text message technologies to personal mobile phones are scams and are in no way sponsored by or af liated with these abovementioned stores. This type of scam has come to be known as Smishing because of the use of SMS text technology. Similar to the way scam websites send Phishing emails, scam artists have been sending text messages offering free gift cards to consumers in exchange for entering information on a mobile website. The most popular website being used recently is called walmartgift.mobi, a site that is neither owned, operated by or af liated with Wal-Mart. Any site can be used for this scam and users are often asked for private personal information including credit card or Social Security numbers. Providing this type of information is very likely to lead to identity theft or credit card fraud. The sheriffs of ce stressed that legitimate businesses will never initiate a text message where they ask for sensitive personal data like credit card information or Social Security numbers. If you receive a questionable e-mail or text messages, it is advised that you disregard or call the sheriffs of ce at 670-8500 to report this activity. FWC of cer nails escapee Earlier this month, Florida Fish and Wildlife Of cer Hank Forehand was traveling down Highway 20 in Liberty County, while on duty at 11 p.m., when he observed a subject walking in the direction of Hosford. He stopped and talked with the subject who acted suspiciously. After several attempts, the of cer obtained the subjects correct name and determined he was wanted for escaping from the Department of Corrections Work Camp in Leon County. Forehand arrested the subject and the Liberty County Sheriffs Of ce transported him to jail.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin Countys jobless rate continued its steady improvement in March, falling by 0.6 of a percentage point to 6.6 percent even as the workforce expanded. According to preliminary numbers released April 20 by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, 21 people dropped off the countys jobless rolls in March, from 389 down to 368, while the labor force expanded, from 5,405 to 5,561. The countys labor force remains even larger than it was one year ago, when it comprised 5,513 workers, and when the jobless rate was higher, at 7.7 percent. Franklin Countys jobless picture moved it into a tie with Alachua and Leon counties for fourth best in the state. Monroe County had the states lowest rate, at 5.1 percent, followed by Walton at 5.7 and Okaloosa at 6.1. Many of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions of government employment. The countys rosier jobless picture corresponded to improvement in nearby counties, both of which are struggling with worse unemployment than Franklins. For the fourth straight month the jobless rate in the Gulf Coast Workforce region (Bay, Franklin and Gulf counties) declined, dropping to 8.1 percent in March 2012. The March 2012 rate was 1.8 percentage points lower than the regions year ago rate of 9.9 percent and below the state rate of 8.6 percent. Out of a labor force of 101,479, there were 8,280 unemployed Gulf Coast residents. This is the third year in a row that weve seen the unemployment drop from February to March, said Kim Bodine, executive director for the Gulf Coast Workforce Board. We feel that the positive trend is holding. Unemployment in Bay and Gulf counties both fell below 9 percent, with Bay dropping by more than 1 percent point, from 9.2 to 8.1 percent, and Gulf tumbling by about 1 percentage point, to 9.4 from 8.5. In March 2012, there were 73,900 nonagricultural jobs in the Panama City-Lynn Haven-Panama City Beach metro area (Bay County), down 100 jobs for the year. This metro area experienced an annual rate of job loss of 0.1 percent, while the state gained jobs at a rate of 1.2 percent. The industry sectors adding the most jobs during the year were leisure and hospitality (400 jobs); government (200 jobs); and trade, transportation, and utilities and education and health services (100 jobs each). The gains were offset by losses in mining, logging, and construction (500 jobs); professional and business services (300 jobs); and nancial activities (100 jobs). The employment growth rate in leisure and hospitality (3.1 percent); and government (1.3) exceeded state growth rates. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 9.0 percent in March 2012, the lowest since January 2009, and comprising 836,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9.28 million. The March 2012 rate fell 0.4 percentage point from the month-ago rate of 9.4 percent: the largest over-the-month decline in the states jobless rate since October 1992. The March 2012 rate was 1.7 percentage points lower than the year-ago rate of 10.7 percent. The U.S. unemployment rate was 8.2 percent in March. Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7.33 million in March 2012, an increase of 10,800 jobs (0.1 percent) over the month. The number of jobs in the state was up 89,800 during the year, an increase of 1.2 percent from March 2011. Nationally, the number of jobs was up 1.5 percent during the year. March was the 20th consecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for three years. The industry gaining the most jobs was trade, transportation, and utilities (30,400 jobs, 2.1 percent). Other industries gaining jobs included professional and business services (26,300 jobs, 2.5 percent); private education and health services (24,800 jobs, 2.3 percent); leisure and hospitality (+23,300 jobs, +2.5 percent); nancial activities (5,800 jobs, 1.2 percent); manufacturing (3,300 jobs, 1.1 percent); and other services (2,200 jobs, 0.7 percent). These industry job gains were partially due to increases in food and beverage stores; employment services; ambulatory health care services; food services and drinking places; real estate; fabricated metal product manufacturing; and personal and laundry services. Industries losing jobs over the year included construction (13,500 jobs, 4.0 percent), total government (12,000 jobs, 1.1 percent), and information (700 jobs, 0.5 percent). These industry job losses partially were a result of losses in specialty trade contractors, state government, and telecommunications.

The association made the announcement at the April 18 opening ceremony of its annual conference. Greene was selected as the Florida State University Library Schools student to receive this $2,000 award, which will help defray the estimated $18,000 cost of the degree. Greene, who is nancing the degree on her own, became library director in March 2009. She then decided she liked the job so much she wanted to earn a masters degree in library science to ensure she will be able to work in this eld until she retires. She said Library Board Chairwoman Susan Clementson and board member Carrie Kienzle, both retired librarians, encouraged her to apply. Greene said it is quite the experience to start graduate school at age 60, but she is having fun and maintaining an almost perfect 4.0 grade point average. Special to the Times Tallahassee writer Elizabeth StuckeyFrench, author of the highly acclaimed novel The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady, will sign books and greet fans from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at Downtown Books. The novel, which earned rave reviews from a slew of publications, from the New York Times and the New Yorker to the San Francisco Chronicle, won the 2011 silver Florida Book Award for general ction and is this months Apalachicola Book Club selection. In this dark comedy wrapped inside a wacky family drama, a vengeful old lady is hellbent on murdering an even older man who has lost his mind. Seventy-sevenyear-old Marylou Ahearn aims to kill Dr. Wilson Spriggs, who, back in 1953, gave her a radioactive cocktail, without her consent, as part of a secret government study that had horrible consequences. Maylou has been plotting revenge for 50 years when she accidentally discovers his whereabouts. She hightails it to Tallahassee, moves down the block from where a now-senile Spriggs lives with his daughters family, and sets about the tricky work of insinuating herself into their lives. But she has no idea what a nest of yellow jackets she has stumbled into. Before the novel is over, someone will be kidnapped, an unlikely couple will get engaged, and someone will eat upside-down cake laced with antifreeze. And thats not the half of it. Told from the varied perspectives of its oddball characters, Radioactive Lady is an intricately plotted, laugh out loud funny, surprisingly touching family drama that combines the wit of Carl Hiaasen with the Southern charm of Jill McCorkle. Stuckey-French also has written the novel Mermaids on the Moon and The First Paper Girl in Red Oaks, Iowa, a short-story collection. She was awarded a James Michener Fellowship and has won grants from the Howard Foundation, the Indiana Arts Foundation, and the Florida Arts Foundation. She teaches ction writing at Florida State University. For details, call Downtown Books at 653-1290. Dez turns 5 Dezmonae LaShay Sanders turns 5 years old Tuesday, May 22, 2012.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com O UTDOORS www.apalachtimes.com Section Section A By TOM R. MACKENZIE Special to the Times Several conservation organizations are seeking protection for the eastern diamond rattler. On May 9, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFW) announced a 90-day public comment period or nding on a petition to list the eastern diamondback rattlesnake as threatened and designate critical habitat for the species under the Endangered Species Act. The petition was submitted last summer by the Center for Biological Diversity, the Coastal Plains Institute Inc., Protecting all Living Species and One More Generation. If the nding determines the petition presents strong information indicating this rattlesnake is endangered, USFW will undertake a more comprehensive review of the snakes status throughout the species range to determine whether listing is warranted. Eastern diamondbacks can grow to a length of more than eight feet and are the largest rattlesnakes in the world. The eastern diamondback historically ranged along the coastal lowlands of the southeastern United States from North Carolina to eastern Louisiana, including all of Florida and its Keys. Although once abundant in longleaf pine ecosystems across the southeastern United States, its population size and range has declined. Nearly all of the old growth longleaf pine savannas are gone, and the eastern diamondback survives wherever its native habitats still exist or where open-canopy forests and grasslands are similar to longleaf pine savannas. USFW is asking for information from state and federal natural resource agencies and all interested parties regarding the eastern diamondback rattlesnake and its habitat. Based on the status review, the Service will make one of three possible determinations: They may decide the listing is not warranted, in which case no further action will be taken. The diamondback also may be listed as threatened or endangered. In this case, USFW will publish a proposal to list, solicit independent scienti c peer review of the proposal, seek input from the public and consider the input before a nal decision about listing the species is made. In general, there is a oneyear period between the time a species is proposed for listing and the nal decision. They may determine the listing is warranted but precluded by other, higher priority activities. This means the species is added to the federal list of candidate species, and the proposal to list is deferred while USFW works on listing proposals for other species that are at greater risk.

MacKenzie is the media relations specialist and Native American liaison for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Southeast Region By VALERIE GARMAN 229-7843 | @valeriegarman vgarman@star .com Wetsuit, check. Air tank, check. Mask, check. Area divers soon will be adding passport to their equipment checklists as they dive the new Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, set to launch in late May. Through the development of the trail, divers will be able to track their underwater journeys in Northwest Florida by passport in an effort by the Florida Division of Historical Resources to bring divers to the Panhandle again and again. It will feature 12 shipwrecks, starting in Pensacola and ending with the wreck of the Vamar in Port St. Joe. Lindsay Smith, an underwater archaeologist with the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research, is part of a small team developing the trail through a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The shipwrecks are amazing, theres just a wonderful variety (in the Panhandle), said Smith, who noted it was dif cult to pinpoint only 12 wrecks. Theyre all very close together and theres just so many to choose from. There are tons of wrecks in the Panhandle, and were only highlighting 12 of them. Smith said the ultimate goal in the development of the trail is to help boost the dive economy throughout the region. The Panhandle has a very strong diving community, Smith said. As far as scuba shops, theres probably about 20. The idea for the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail came from State Underwater Archaeologist Roger Smith. He thought it would be a great thing for the Panhandle because tourism kind of lagged after the oil spill, Smith said. Were really hoping to get some return tourism and invigorate the local dive communities. Smith and the team of underwater archaeologists also are developing a website, which will be complete with underwater photography and video footage of the Panhandle wrecks featured and links to the dive shops on each leg of the trail. Because of the enthusiastic response the team has received for the Shipwreck Trail, the team assembled some 25 to 30 hours of underwater video footage for all of the trail candidates, as well as historic photographs. The site will feature 13 short videos, the rst introducing the trail and passport and one highlighting each wreck. The passports are in the nal stages of development, and Smith said they are hoping to distribute the passports to area dive shops and launch the new website before Memorial Day at the end of this month. The passport will serve as a marketing tool, dive log and souvenir and will hopefully encourage return visitation to the Panhandle area, said Smith. Divers will log visibility, water temperature and weather conditions, pressure and dive time, and record their dive buddy and charter boat from each dive. Dive shops and charter boats will have the opportunity to offer the passport to divers for a small registration fee to participate in the trail, with a registration form to provide information about each passport holder. The shops and boats each will carry an of cial stamp to verify each dive completed on the trail to be paired with the signature of the captain on the passport. Before the project came to fruition, Smith said the group of underwater archaeologists rst needed to speak with area dive shop owners in order to see what type of project would be most bene cial. After the NOAA grant was received, we decided to go into the different communities and gauge interest, Smith said. We went and talked to local dive shop owners about what their customers look for in dive trips. Smith said the response from local shop owners about the development of a shipwreck trail was phenomenal. The team collected 22 shipwreck nominations from the owners and narrowed it down to 12, making sure there were dives for every skill level. The Florida Keys has a similar Wreck Trek, but Smith said the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will operate a bit differently. They have a much larger number of dive shops, Smith said about the Keys. The visibility (in the Panhandle) isnt the same as the Keys, but the wrecks are close enough to shore to still allow for great underwater visibility. Were looking at it a little bit differently, because we want to track how the sites are being used and who is diving them. Smith said the team plans on utilizing social networking sites like Facebook to allow divers to share their experiences and get in touch with other people who dive the trail. The website will also play an integral part in the development and promotion of the trail. The Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will feature ve Pensacola wrecks: USS Oriskany, San Pablo (Russian Freighter), Pete Tide II, YDT 14 and 15 (Navy tenders), and Three Barges; ve off the coast of Panama City: Black Bart, USS Strength, FAMI Twin Tugs, USS Accokeek and USS Cheppewa; the Miss Louise in Destin; and Port St. Joes wreck of the Vamar will serve as the easternmost stop on the dive trail. The Vamar is one of Floridas 11 designated underwater archaeological preserves. The ship wrecked under mysterious circumstances in World War II-era Port St. Joe in 1942, and now rests on the ocean oor near the tip of St. Joseph Peninsula. Resting in only 25 feet of water, the Vamar is often considered one of the best shallow water dives on the Emerald Coast. As noted by the Bureau of Archaeological Research, divers can explore the ships steam engine, bilge keels and rudder quadrant and investigate the mystery of the wreck. A plaque will soon be sunk as the last step in designating the wreck of the Vamar as a state underwater preserve. The wreck was dedicated an underwater preserve back in 2004. I think the Shipwreck Trail kind of renewed the interest in getting that plaque down there, Smith said. In order for a wreck to become an underwater preserve, Smith said, it must be nominated by a local group interested in recognizing the site. It comes from a community level, where the people come together and want to recognize a speci c site, Smith said. Its all done with public support and volunteer work.

CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA SP O RTS www.apalachtimes.com A Section By JOSH WRIGHT Special to the Times With springtime winding down the Franklin County Seahawks, along with the every other high school football team in Florida, have been participating in spring football. The squad has been at it since May 1 and the season will conclude tonight with a threeway Jamboree in Port St. Joe between Franklin County and the two Gulf County programs. Each team will play one another for a full half of football each. Franklin plays Wewahitchka in the opening half and then faces St. Joe in the second half. In the third half, St. Joe and Wewa wrap things up with a friendly county rivalry match that will produce some summer bragging rights. Every program in Florida is using this time period to develop a depth chart and build momentum heading into the summer workouts. Our staff has been pleasantly surprised with the installation of our spread offense and our 3-5 defensive inserts. We have actually done both at different times in the past three years, but feel both packages t our personnel. The spring season will also reveal some offseason changes as St. Joe hired a new head coach in Chuck Gannon and assigned a new offensive coordinator Tracy Browning. Wewa will have a new fefensive coordinator David Barnes and a new offensive line coach Stuart Vines. The Seahawks have been trying to recruit experienced coach Jason Kay to come to the area and be part of the Seahawk family as well. The attitude and work pace has been very positive and the weather has really cooperated with us. Our primary focus this Thursday will be on effort and tenacity. We feel that taking a good look at an exciting offensive scheme like the spread and a defensive scheme like the 35 in the spring de nitely gives us the opportunity to take what we like about them and discard what we dont. The staff is de nitely working hard to give the Franklin County fans something to be proud of and something to cheer about and they hope to see all the fans there Thursday night in St. Joe for kickoff. Tonights Jamboree is set for 7 p.m. EST at Tiger Shark eld. Josh Wright is the head coach of the Franklin County Seahawks football team.

F WC asks for help in chipmunk research Eastern chipmunks are thought to live in only a few locations in Northwest Florida but researchers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are asking anyone who has spotted one to report the sighting. Wildlife biologist Chris Winchester said information may be recorded at https://public. myfwc.com/hsc/chipmunk/ getlatlong.aspx. Smaller than a gray squirrel, the Eastern chipmunk is slightly reddish in color and has white and black stripes running down its back and light stripes above its eyes. Winchester said researchers are especially interested in new sighting data, but would also like information on on older sightings. He said chipmunks appear to be rare in Florida but historically have been found along the Escambia, Blackwater, Yellow and Choctawhatchee rivers. There are also reports of chipmunks observed in backyards, and in forested lots within urban areas. The species is more common in forested areas in the eastern half of the United States from Alabama north to Canada. Boyette appointed to Construction Industry Licensing Board Gov.

The theme of the Summer Reading Program will be Dream Big, READ, and will be presented in collaboration with the Apalachicola Municipal Library. This program is developed by the 2012 Summer Collaborative Reading Program and the state library system. Students can earn rewards for their reading time through the summer while helping to boost their skills for the next school year. Highlights for the summer include a Traditional Boat Building Workshop with Apalachicola Maritime Museum, Kids College with the Gulf Coast State College, and this years special guest, the Center for Puppetry Arts from Atlanta, Georgia. Project Impact, in collaboration with the Apalachicola Maritime Museum, will offer a wooden boat building program this summer, boats rock! It is a six-week program and will be held at the workshop of the Maritime Museum in conjunction with the Project Impact Summer Camp. The students will build a sailing dinghy, learn to sail, and will also learn about the history and ecology of our beautiful area. Students must apply with their site Coordinator to participate with only six students selected for this inaugural program. At the end of the program students will be treated to a sailing trip aboard the AMMs beautiful sail boat, the Heritage. For a second year a special Sizzlin Summer Scholars program for teens and pre-teens is planned in collaboration with Gulf Coast Community College through the Kids College outreach project. The program will include science, technology, health science, and the visual, performing, and culinary arts curriculum. GCCC has a new Advanced Technology Center where students will learn about the latest in the green sciences and engineering with many hands-on learning experiences. Students from both sites will participate in activities at Project Impact in Apalachicola and then attend special classes at the Panama City GCCC Campus during four eld trips where they will have an opportunity to see themselves in a campus setting and get a feel for life as college students. The Project Impact Summer Theater Program will host a very special guest as resident artist, Jeffrey Zwartjes from the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. Zwartjes will join the Project Impact staff to present a week-long workshop for students in puppetry. Students will learn about the history of puppetry and puppets from around the world, and will work with the guest artist to write their own script, build their own puppets, and present a public performance on June 28 at the City Recreational site. Program hours are 8 am to 4 pm, Mondays through Thursdays beginning June 11 and running through July 26. The program will be closed for the Fourth of July week. Students must be between Pre-K (at least age 4), and no older than the 12th grade for next school year to enroll in the camp. Other summer programs offered will include pottery, arts, crafts, sports, sewing, computer technology and a eld trip each Thursday! The Project Impact Summer Program is provided free of charge. Families may enroll their child in Project Impact at either the ABC or City Recreational sites or online at projectimpactfcs.org. For more information, call Faye Johnson, program director, at 370-0145. Project Impact is funded by the 21st Century Community Learning Centers. Big plans for Project Impact summer camp By TAMARA ALLEN Special to the Times The number one tourist attraction in Carrabelle got a facelift last month The Worlds Smallest Police Station was looking tired, faded and the old stick-on letters were even peeling off, so the city of Carrabelle used Tourist Development Council tax money to spruce up the famous landmark. They hired Bob Sauls, of Sauls Signs in Tallahassee, to do the job the old-fashioned way, by hand-painting lettering on the glass as it was done it in 1953 when Police Chief Albin Westberg had the rst sign painted. Sauls was tickled pink to be included in the police station make-over. This town has been very helpful to me. The old school handlettering that was implemented for the History Museum sign and now the Worlds Smallest Police Station allowed me to get back in touch with my roots as a sign painter, he said. It was all hand skills and knowledge, not computergenerated graphics back then. All of the methods and typefaces chosen were what you would have expected to see in their day. A bench with a little landscaping under the shade of the chinaberry tree will complete the project, along with a sign explaining how Carrabelle got its famous police station. Tamara Allen is the director of Carrabelle CARES. TAMARA ALLEN | Special to the Times FACELIFT FOR HISTORIC PHONE BOOTH
