Interest is building for a 3 p.m. public hearing at the Carrabelle Municipal Complex, 1001 Gray Ave., to address a controversial topic that rst surfaced just six weeks ago: that Carrabelle is seeking a $15 million loan from the Florida Department of Environmental Protections state revolving loan fund to buy the assets of Water Management Services Inc., the water company that By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The number and total value of the countys delinquent tax certificates continue to decline, but the demand remains high for them among investors. On May 25 in the jury room on the third oor of the county courthouse, Tax Collector Jimmy Harris stayed on the sunny side as he conducted one of the states few remaining live auctions of delinquent tax certi cates. At least 60 of Floridas 67 counties have opted for online auctions, but Harris said the bidders who have come by year after year want to keep it the way it is. The people always enjoy the sale, he said. My bidders dont want online bidding; they like the live sale. This year, with interest rates on savings accounts and certi cates of deposits near record lows, about 75 active bidders packed the jury room to see how well they could do. Bidding against one another, they drove down the interest rates paid on the certi cates from a starting point of 1.5 percent per month, or 18 percent per year, simple interest. Buyers willing to offer the lowest interest rate (it can be as low as 0 percent) can then buy the lien for the property. But even if they bid zero and the debtor pays off his delinquent taxes, they still will recoup their investment, plus a minimum of the rst 5 months interest. If a tax lien is not paid off by the property owner within a two-year period, the lien holder who has bought the certi cate then can exercise their right to foreclose on the property within seven years from the date of the certi cates purchase. Florida tax liens have priority over all other Gail Riegelmayer is a spokesman for St. George Island Water, the entity representing the islanders interests.

County commissioners declared a state of emergency at 8:15 a.m. Sunday and by 11 a.m. had closed the seven-mile long Bryant Patton Bridge that spans Eastpoint and St. George Island. By 4 p.m., after winds subsided from their earlier 60 mph highs, county of cials ordered a mandatory evacuation of Alligator Point, St. George Island and low-lying areas of the county. They equated it to a (Hurricane) Dennis event, which is a water event, said Tom Durham, public information of cer for Franklin County Emergency Management. He said law enforcement personnel began convoying people off the island. The bridge reopened Tuesday to business people and homeowners and on Wednesday was completely reopened. An 8 p.m. curfew remains in effect because of the power outage. With sustained winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusts as high as 60 mph, Durham said the storm dislodged a Progress Energy barge early Sunday and smashed it into the shing pier off St. George Island, just a few hundred feet from the shore.. No one was injured in the incident. The barge, belonging to a Progress Energy contractor, remains adrift and its position is unknown, although it has JUST CRASHING THROUGH Coast Guard airlifts stranded family By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com At the peak of Debbys fury on Sunday afternoon, the Coast Guard rescued a family stranded at a house surrounded by pounding surf on Dog Island. Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Mobile received a cellphone call about 12:30 p.m. from a man who said his family of ve adults, two children aged 10 and 12, two teenaged girls and two dogs was stranded in a beach house completely surrounded by water on a narrow sandbar at the southwest portion of the island. Caroline Burnsed of Leesburg, a member of the vacation party, said the house on the island south of Carrabelle is owned by family members. The family had monitored the weather before coming to the island for their holiday but were stunned by the ferocity of Debby. The weather forecast just said scattered thunderstorms for Saturday and thunderstorms for Sunday, but we had no idea, Burnsed said. If I had known, I would have left.

He said the barge was used to transport the new power poles installed in the bay and was carrying no cargo when it broke loose from its moorings. It did not appear the barge damaged the new bridge, Dur ham said. Early Sunday afternoon, law enforcement ordered the John Gorrie Bridge, which spans Apalachicola to Eastpoint, also closed, but it reopened a few hours later. About 2,000 customers on St. George Island have been without power since Sunday morning. The St. George Island Bridge is open and mandatory evacua tion has been lifted, but Sumner said as of 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, 2,000 of the 9,600 customers in the county still were without power, mostly on the island. Weve been able to get out to St. George Island, and were doing some work out there, he said. Sumner said generators are en route to the island, and all indications are power will be re stored to the island by the week end. He said the new transmis sion structures and new distri bution lines recently installed on the island came through Debby unscathed. Three of the existing trans mission lines were damaged by the storms. The lines were scheduled to be upgraded July 9, but the upgrade will be done ahead of schedule, said Scott Sutton, a spokesman for Prog ress Energy. In addition, there have been scattered outages throughout the county. Theyre at the mercy of the weather, Durham said during the brunt of the storm. Its just too mean to have anyone out there now. Flooding worse on east end Franklin County commission ers on Tuesday afternoon issued an evacuation notice for resi dents living along the New River, Crooked River and Carrabelle River. We have been advised that the water from the creeks and streams will be draining into our rivers, said Pam Brownell, the countys emergency manage ment director. She said the evacuation was necessary because the National Weather Service has no way of monitoring just how quickly the water will be rising or exactly how much to expect. Just because you do not have ooding now, it is coming. Please take all necessary precautions. Durham said the county is at level 1 activation and may es calate to level 2 Wednesday af ternoon. He said two groups of people including a 75-year-old woman and an 11-year-old girl were evacuated by boat from homes on River Road west of the Carrabelle Bridge. The Florida Highway Patrol said Wednesday morning that County Road 67 remained closed at the Pine Log Creek (Crooked River) Bridge because of ood ing. Lake Morality Road from County 67 to U.S. 98 is closed, as is County 67 from U.S. 98 to the Wakulla/Liberty County line. In Alligator Point, a voluntary evacuation order was issued Sunday before a mandatory one this afternoon. Steve Fling, chief of the Alli gator Point volunteer re depart ment, said a low-lying section of Alligator Drive was underwa ter since early Sunday evening. Weve got some minor coastal ooding in some low-lying ar eas, he said. He said the road in front of the old KOA campground was under water since then as well. The road on the east side of it that connects with Tom Roberts Road where you make the by pass through campground, thats intact, he said. The east sec tion of that approach, before you make a right, the outside lane is eroded in a couple places but its still passable. But you can divert down Harbor Circle; the bypass road is intact. Fling said two houses on Bald Point have had exterior sid ing blown off. Also, a section of screened porch on a Bald Point location blew off and took with it part of the roof. Some docks have washed away, he said. We are still un der a mandatory evacuation. Id say two-thirds of the folks left by Monday. We had power outages yesterday from noon to 5 p.m. but weve had power since then, and we have water, although we are under a boil water notice. Scattered road closures also occurred through Eastpoint along U.S. 98, where the coastline was battered by storm surges as high as 5 to 7 feet. Sandbags were available at the county road department off Highway 65 Eastpoint, at the for mer Carrabelle High School foot ball eld house, at the old state yard on Bluff Road in Apalachic ola and in Lanark Village in the rear of the rehouse. The Franklin and Wakulla county courthouses were closed Monday and Tuesday but re opened Wednesday. In addition The Nest summer program was closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Tates Hell State Forest in Carrabelle has been closed through Friday. Grant Slayden, trial court ad ministrator, said the court will seek a tolling order from the Su preme Court of Florida so par ties will not be adversely affected because of the closings. The roof over the east end of the Franklin County Courthouse was damaged during Sundays heavy rains, causing water to leak down through the third oor jury room and holding cell and into second oor ofces belong ing to the tax collector and clerk of courts. Several ceiling tiles fell and records were soaked by the leak. Furniture was removed from the jury box to avoid further damage. The ceiling in a meeting room on the third oor adjacent to the courtroom also sustained water damage. The windows at the rear of the courthouse also leaked badly, and paint on the adjacent walls bubbled. Rainfall records fall like rain National Weather Service Meteorologist Kelly Godsey said Apalachicola set a daily record for rainfall Monday with 6.3 inch es, nearly tripling the previous record of 2.4 inches in 2002. So far 12 inches of rain fell on the county during Debby, helping to make it the all-time wettest June, at 21.5 inches, washing over by more than 3 inches the previous record of 18.3 inches in 1965. And with three days left in the month, the county is nearing its wettest month on record, set in Sept. 1946 with 22.5 inches. The 9 inches of June rain that preceded Debby was already more than twice the monthly av erage of 4.3 inches. Sunday afternoon is when Debby started her deluge. By 2 p.m., almost 2 inches of rain had fallen, and nearly 1 inches fell between 4 and 5 p.m. For the next eight hours, heavy intermittent rain led to more than 6 inches by the end of the day. On Monday, it was nearly the same amount, with about 6 inches of rain. Weddings cancelled, chicks rescued Debby forced an Atlanta cou ple to postpone, but not cancel, their plans to wed on the beach of St. George Island, the site where their three-year romance rst bloomed. I was really not happy that another woman was going to come between me and my wed ding, joked Bartley Cross, a bal let dancer and dance instructor. She and Joey McGlamory, a personal trainer and massage therapist, planned to marry Monday evening and then spend the rest of the week honeymoon ing on the island, where her beau proposed to her in April. Cross at rst hoped to ignore the fact the island had no elec tricity but soon gave up after learning from the sheriffs ofce the couple wouldnt be allowed on the island. I do not want to get married in the courthouse, she said. So she and McGlamory have rebooked with Resort Vacation Properties for a July 12-19 stay, when they plan to have Nedra Jef ferson, a deputy clerk of courts, unite them in holy matrimony. Im not going to let Debby keep me from marrying Joey, Cross said. The young dancer said she and her anc were disappoint ed in more than just the stymied nuptials. We love storms, Cross said.

The Times | A3 Thursday, June 28, 2012 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Six Central American immigrants were arrested in Apalachicola last week, and charged with workers compensation fraud. In a late-night and early morning sweep through Apalachicola June 20-21, Detective Michael Smith, from the Florida Department of Financial Services, led a unit assisted by sheriffs deputies and of cers from the Apalachicola Police Department. Anna Alexopoulos, press secretary for the departments Division of Insurance Fraud, released the arrest report and probable cause af davits for the six individuals, but would say little else. The investigation is ongoing and at this time, the division cannot release any additional details, she said. Beginning at 9:15 p.m., and lasting until about 2:30 a.m., law enforcement went to several locations. Individuals present at the homes said questions were asked regarding the whereabouts of a list of people who had been employed at Apalachicolas Leavins Seafood. On May 15, Leavins dismissed 41 workers who the company said were suspected of providing inaccurate information on their I-9 employment eligibility veri cation forms. The I-9 requires proof of a valid Social Security number, birth certi cate, passport, or citizenship or resident alien identi cation card. Elizabeth Ricci, an attorney for Leavins, said the companys dismissals stemmed from an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) dating back to Nov. 2011. Nestor Yglesias, a spokesman for ICE, would not comment on the role ICE had in last weeks arrests. It is an ongoing investigation at this point, he said. Arrested last week were Agustin Huertos Paez, 33, 145 Avenue D.; Guatemalan immigrants Andres Francisco Diego, 21, 118 10th Street, and Victor Diego Gaspar, 53, 162 Martin Luther King Avenue; Mexican immigrants Aurora Leon Gordillo, 28, and Elvina Perez, 32, both of 268 Prado; and Honduran immigrant Marisol Reyes, 23, 342 Brownsville Road. Each was charged with a single thirddegree felony, as cited in Florida Statutes 440.105(4)(b)(9). That law makes it a crime for anyone to knowingly present or cause to be presented any false, fraudulent, or misleading oral or written statement to any person as evidence of identity for the purpose of obtaining employment or ling or supporting a claim for workers compensation bene ts. The crime is punishable by up to ve years in prison and a $5,000 ne. Ricci, who is not representing any of the accused, said a conviction could lead to deportation. A deportation case can be mitigated by other factors, such as length of presence in the U.S., a permanent resident or U.S. citizenaffected family, or if they themselves are victim of a crime, she said. I think in this case law enforcement is trying to make an example of how documentation can have a trickle down effect, not just on a workers place of employment, said Ricci. She said the recent rings, and these arrests, underscore the need for comprehensive immigration reform. Making employers dependent on an undocumented workforce needs to be xed urgently. Now were having families displaced, and businesses are having less clients and customers, said Ricci. This is representative of a broken system. Being in the U.S. without documentation is not a crime. People are doing jobs that Americans refuse to do. Its not like theyre taking a job away from an American.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times By JIM CLEMENTS Special to the Times Catch shares, or Individual Fishing Quotas (IFQs) have been used successfully all over the world for many years. They are simply a means of distributing the commercial quota of fish, or other marine species, set by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). Instead of fishermen racing to catch the total commercial quota, it is divided amongst the fishermen who participate in the catch share program. An individual commercial fisherman owns a percentage of the total quota in the form of a share, which allocates the amount of pounds he can catch each year. When a fishermen reaches his individual quota, he must either stop fishing, lease allocation from other commercial fishermen, or buy more shares. A few fishing organizations are criticizing catch shares for their own misguided reasons. Bill Kelly, with the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association (FKCFA), wrote an article in which he says he is against catch shares. This is ironic because his organization represents lobster fishermen who participate in one of the largest catch share programs in the Gulf. Access to the lobster catch share program could not be more limited. To harvest lobsters you must purchase a federal permit, traps, plus trap tags from other fishermen for as much as $100 per tag. You would have to purchase around 3,000 tags in order to make a decent living. At $300,000, plus a boat and traps, it is almost impossible for a small fisherman to enter the lobster catch share program. Saying the Florida lobster shery is not a catch share program, is like saying a street is not a road. In the grouper/snapper catch share programs you can purchase grouper allocation for 60 to 70 cents per pound in order to harvest a grouper worth $3.50 per pound. New entrants and the smallest shermen are more than willing to lease grouper allocation in order to make a prot year round. That is good news for the commercial shing industry and the American consumer can now enjoy fresh Gulf grouper all year. Along with 13 other long-time commercial shermen, I was appointed to the Grouper/ Tilesh IFQ Advisory Panel by the Gulf Council. We spent more than three years carefully designing the Gulf grouper catch share program. It was then voted in by substantial participants in the commercial shery by more than an 80 percent margin. The grouper catch share program has saved many commercial shermen from going out of business. The old system of an open shery with derby shing occurring before the commercial quota was lled and the season closed down, was unmanageable. No one could make a living tied to the dock. Under the Gulf catch share programs, the grouper/snapper shery is among the most accountable sheries in the world. Before he leaves the dock, a sherman must notify NOAA of his departure and what he intends to sh for. NOAA then begins tracking his vessel through a Vessel Monitoring System (VMS). If the sherman ventures into a closed area, NOAA sees it on the computer and mails the owner a ne, somewhere in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. Before the sherman returns, he must make a three-hour call-in to NOAA so they can have an enforcement ofcer waiting on him when he reaches the dock. Under NOAAs observation, every pound of sh that comes off the boat is weighed and subtracted from that shermans individual quota. It is a 100 percent accountable system, and neither the grouper nor red snapper commercial quota has been exceeded since the programs inception in 2007. Some did not like it at rst, but now commercial shermen in the Gulf realize how important catch share programs are, and how their accountability ensures a healthy shery for them and American consumers One of the main reasons catch shares have become controversial lately is because leaders of organizations like the FKCFA, and the National Association of Charterboat Operators (NACO) are trying to convince recreational shermen that not only are catch shares bad, but they will be forced on them. Nothing could be further from the truth. Catch shares are strictly for the commercial shery. They should not be used in the recreational sector, and no one is advocating that. They wont even work in a recreational shery. Congressman Steve Southerland wrote a recent op-ed that catch shares are being forced on recreational shermen. He is a recreational sherman who has been brainwashed by these two organizations. Perhaps Southerland should read the NOAA Catch Share Policy, which clearly states that NOAA, does not advocate the use of individual private angler catch shares. Leaders of these two organizations think they have to stir up controversy so they can justify their jobs. They are probably right. Who would join an organization and give money if there was nothing to ght for? In Michael Crichtons book A State of Fear, he describes how these types of organizations create a state of fear so people will send them money. FKCFA and NACO are perfect examples. The head of FKCFA, a commercial shing organization, is not even a commercial sherman. The head of NACO, a charter boat shing organization, is only a part time charter boat captain, but hey, dont take my word for it. Read the review by Rick T. at www.yelp.com/ biz/capt-bob-zales-zodiakcharter-eet-panama-city. Very interesting reading! Jim Clements is a commercial fisherman from Carrabelle. Thursday, June 28, 2012 The city of Carrabelle is considering the purchase of Water Management Systems Inc. (WMSI) the water provider for St. George Island. In order to make this purchase, the city has asked for up to a $15 million loan from the State Department of Environmental Protection. A public hearing has been scheduled for Friday, June 29 at 3 p.m. at the City Complex in Carrabelle to discuss and decide on this purchase. It is important that you consider the following points and attend this meeting. The true value of Water Management Services Inc. has not been determined. This will not be an easy task. WMSI has outstanding loans for several million dollars to the state and to Centennial Bank. Floridas Public Services Commission is currently considering a WMSI rate increase request, and important issues are still open from a preceding rate case that need to be answered. According to the latest filing, WMSI needs about $3 million in upgrades and repairs. If a private company were buying WMSI, the state of Florida would require that the true value of the company be established and the sale price would be based on that value. Since the city of Carrabelle is a municipality and not a private company, it is not required to establish this value and can pay a much higher price than the company may actually be worth. Then all water company customers would have to pay for it through their monthly water bills. The responsibility for repair and upkeep of the water system falls on all its customers. While this spreads out the cost, do existing Carrabelle water customers want to share the responsibility of upgrading and operating a water system with all the risks associated with providing services on a barrier island? Franklin County commissioners have sent a resolution to the state, expressing their concerns about the sale and asking the state to slow down the process until more can be learned and understood. The residents of St. George Island believe that this sale is being rushed forward on an accelerated schedule before all the facts and gures can be collected and analyzed. Our interest is in receiving quality service at a fair price, regardless of the provider. But, since St. George will be served by the system, it concerns the residents that we will not have a voice in selecting the members of the water board that governs this utility if the sale proceeds to the city of Carrabelle. We also believe that the people of Carrabelle, as residents of a city that is considering taking on a large debt to fund an investment in a system of uncertain value, should be very concerned. Tell your commissioners at the public hearing this Friday that you want to take the time to understand the details and real value of Water Management Systems Inc. before they approve the purchase of this utility. Its just the right thing to do. Mason Bean is the president of the St. George Island Civic Club Here it is Monday, June 25 and it looks like Debby has decided to squat on Franklin County for awhile. The one positive thing that is readily apparent, besides the much-needed rain, is that we are fortunate to have dedicated public servants and utility workers in our county. Without fail, if the power or telephones went out, Progress Energy and FairPoint were on it as soon as possible and power and communication was restored; if trees and their limbs were down, blocking roads or causing other dangers, city and county workers were on the ball clearing the way; if people were in danger, our re, police and sheriffs personnel were there, rendering aid and directing trafc. No, its not said often enough, but thank you to all who work for the citizens of Franklin County Clif Holcomb Carrabelle MASON BEAN Dont rush sale of island water system County fortunate to have dedicated workers By CATY GREENE Special to the Times The Apalachicola Municipal Library and Project Impacts Summer Reading Program is going great. For two weeks now we have been going to the two Project Impact sites, Mondays at the City Center and Tuesdays at the ABC School. Guest readers have included Dawn Radford, Nancy Luther, Deborah Miller and Jody Rosenbaum (hope I didnt forget anyone). Susan Clementson, chair of the Library Board, has been rolling up her sleeves with Coordinator Julie OMalley and yours truly, the librarian. Special thanks go to Robin V (really Vroegop) and her husband Mike, who pinch hit this last Monday. She has taken on the reading to the high schoolers who are settling in on a chapter book. We have been reading some really cute books like The Elves and the Shoemaker by Paul Galdone. Its the story of how the shoemaker and his wife make clothes for the elves who have been making the shoes for them. You can be sure the little readers noticed that the elves did not have clothes to begin with. The Sandman by Ralph Fletcher is also a cute tale of nding that dragon scales, ground down into powder, can cure sleeplessness. The best by far, however, has been The Genie Scheme by Kimberly Jones. The story opens with a girl being kind to a bag lady and buying her a hat. When the bag lady shows up in her bedroom and announces she is a genie, things get interesting. The chapter book will continue to be read through future weeks. Activities have included Elf Doorknob Faces, Worry Dolls (a tradition of Guatemala made from pipe cleaners and yarn), stories to ll in, hidden pictures to nd, and for the older kids, wishing bottles with stars inside and out. I was going to say that by the time of this reading we will have done our Week 3 activities which revolve around bats and owls, but of course the storm has delayed us. It includes my favorite books, Bats at the Beach and Bats at the Library by Brian Lies. He is the illustrator whose art graces all the promotional materials for this years Collaborative Summer Reading Program. Even the library cards that each participant gets have his charming art on it. Remember, students lose reading skills over the summer, unless they continue to read. Programs like this are the best prevention for summer slide and put students on their game when school starts up again. We will be taking the Fourth of July week off, but we still need volunteer readers starting again on Monday, July 9. Come join in the fun!

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, June 28, 2012 serves St. George Island. With the wrath of Tropical Storm Debby shutting off power Sunday morning and it not expected to be back on before Friday, the committee of St. George Islanders who have mobilized to address a possible water company sale is urging state of cials to postpone the pending hearing. The islanders were going to ask for a slowdown (of the process), and then bam, on Sunday were taken out. The communications committee drafted the email blast, but we couldnt do it because the computers were out, said Gail Riegelmayer, a spokesman for the newly created St. George Island Water LLC, the entity representing the islanders interests. Were dead in the water. Nobodys here to receive it, she said. People are incapacitated. Theyre not here. More than 100 people, nearly all of them islanders, showed up at a June 21 meeting in the Plantation Clubhouse to hear a report on the possible sale of WMS from Mason Bean, president of the islands civic club; Newt Colston, a leader of the task force set up to address the WMS sale; and Riegelmayer. That meeting followed a May 29 gathering at the St. George Island rehouse that had been hastily called by Pinki Jackel, who represents the island on the county commission. That meeting was called in such a hurry because word had only just surfaced among county of cials about the steps Carrabelle had taken six weeks earlier to buy the WMS system. County wants loan application suspended On April 13, City Attorney Dan Hartman quietly led a request with the DEP to have Carrabelle included on a priority list for state revolving loan money, with an estimated project cost of $15 million. This project will further the citys ongoing efforts to consolidate the water production, treatment and distribution facilities throughout this part of the Florida Gulf Coast into municipal ownership, Hartman wrote in the application. Consolidating and improving these utility system facilities will raise the level of consistency of service and improve management ef ciency for the populations (from Carrabelle to St. George Island). Moreover, the consolidated systems will bene t tremendously from the resulting economies of scale and greater access to affordable nancing. Carrabelles lack of communication with county of cials before making the application concerned county commissioners, as did a host of other issues they outlined in a June 5 resolution passed unanimously. Commissioner Smokey Parrish and Jackel said they were deluged by emails from islanders asking for a slowdown in the loan process. The commissioners resolution, sent June 12 by County Attorney Michael Shuler to the Florida cabinet and DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard, State Sen. Bill Montford and State Rep. Jimmy Patronis, asked that DEP temporarily suspend the loan application so that a reasonable inquiry may be made into all of the consequences and implications arising from the operation of the islands water system by a city located approximately 20 miles away. The resolution said islanders had concerns their water rates may be set by an elected body over whom they are disenfranchised from and are thus unable to exercise their fundamental right to vote. The resolution said though Carrabelle had no present plans to physically connect services between (WMS and Carrabelle), such a connection in the future cannot be ruled out. It noted that such future connectivity of services may include central sewerage from (Carrabelle), which may adversely impact Franklin Countys growth management policies on this barrier island regulating densities and height restrictions, and possible environmental impacts and bene ts. Riegelmayer said she and as many islanders who are available plan to make their voices heard at Fridays hearing. We are not against Carrabelle per se, she said. What we are not in favor of is the rush of this. It doesnt give us a chance to fully understand why Carrabelle wants us and what their intentions are. In the meantime, the whole thing has moved so fast. Riegelmayer has been busy working to postpone the hearing, in light of the mandatory evacuation and complete power outage on the island this week. She has appealed to DEP of cials to extend the deadline for Carrabelle to submit their water facilities plan as part of the process for applying for the $15 million loan. It is my understanding that the whole purpose of a public hearing is to give the citizens of Carrabelle and St. George Island and anyone else in the public a chance to be heard regarding their thoughts and opinions (on the loan), she wrote. To proceed with the public hearing on Friday and to continue with the DEPs July 1 deadline would not achieve the intended purpose of holding the public hearing in the rst place. If it continues as planned, then the citizens of Carrabelle and St. George Island will be disenfranchised from having input into this process, which I know is counter to DEPs intention.

A6 | The Times Thursday, June 28, 2012 Special to the Times Elementary, middle and high school students from ve schools in Floridas Big Bend got to see their conservation-inspired artwork take center stage on April 21 during an Earth Day celebration at Florida State Universitys Coastal & Marine Laboratory. One of the goals we have as an institution is to strengthen peoples interest in seeking knowledge and understanding of the ecological wonders that surround them, said Felicia Coleman, director of the lab. The best conveyors of wonder are children, and the most compelling way they can explore their awareness of the world around them is through art. Working under the theme Conservation: Taking Care of the River, Bay and Gulf, students from Franklin County Middle School, Riversink Elementary School, Medart Elementary School, and Tallahassees SAIL High School and Alfred B. Maclay School painted mural panels that showcase their visions of Floridas rich ecological diversity. The mural project is intended to showcase community and school-based artwork while boosting awareness of the need to conserve and protect our waterways. The river, bay and gulf are the heart of Franklin County, making us particularly proud to be a part of this awareness project, said Andrea Keuchel, a teacher at Franklin County Middle School. Our mural panel, Seahawks Protecting Our River, Bay and Gulf, communicates the students deep commitment to preserve these precious resources. Each participating school was given a marinegrade, 4-foot by 8-foot mural panel and instructed to interpret the conservation theme in its own artistic way. The panels were then mounted to the marine labs new Mural Wall of Art in Nature and unveiled by the students who created them. A sixth mural panel was also created by Koenig Brothers Design to serve as an anchor for the new wall. The murals remind us that healthy coastal and marine habitats are our life support system, providing ecosystem services for all organisms and jobs for many people in this region, Coleman said. The murals also represent the diverse array of research projects in which our scientists are engaged and may even serve as a means of attracting more young people to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics relevant to marine systems. To see pictures of the new student-created murals, visit www.facebook. com/FSUCML. To learn more about the work of the marine lab, visit www. marinelab.fsu.edu The mission of the marine lab is to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research focused on the coastal and marine ecosystems of the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, with a focus on solving the ecological problems faced by the region by providing the scienti c underpinnings for informed policy decisions. Research is conducted by faculty, postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate investigators from FSU and other universities throughout the world. The laboratory collaborates with scientists from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries, the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge.

Thanks for saving TaShawn Jones life on Fathers Day at the beach. Patrick and the unknown male risked their lives pulling TaShawn from the water after a strong rip current swept him off his feet and carried him nearly 60 yards away. Fighting for his life, Mary Sewell performed CPR while the unknown female made a split-second call to 911. Many tears owed and many prayers went up, but it was Fathers Day and truly my father Jesus Christ is our Father, so he showed up right on time. He showed us who he really was on His day and turned this tragic situation around. TaShawn and family would once again like to thank everyone from one heart to another. Jones Family STRANDED from page A1 PHOTO S COU R TE S Y OF U .S. COA S T GUA RD At left, two people are placed in a basket to be airlifted off Dog Island. Above is the Coast Guard crew that handled the rescue. boat, called a commercial vessel in Carrabelle to ask for a lift ashore, but the captain told them it was to rough for him to make the trip. As the tide continued to rise, they turned to the Coast Guard. An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and crew from Coast Guard Aviation Training Center Mobile deployed to their location. On board the Jay hawk were petty ofcers Michael Huerta, Andrew Sinclair and Robert M. Mackenzie under the command of Lt. Cmdr. Jason J. Dorval. It took between three and four hours for help to arrive. While they waited, the visitors watched part of a dock, a sink and a sh cleaning station below the house wash away in the surf. Burnsed said she was frightened because years before, a house on the same spit of sand was complete ly swept away in a storm. The rescue crew hoisted and transported the family to Carrabelle Thompson Airport, using a basket big enough for two adults. Because the chopper was only large enough to carry half the party, the rst group was ferried to the airport while the second group waited. Among the stranded tourists were two small dogs, a terrier and a labradoodle. Burnsed said she put her terrier into a pillowcase before the rescue because she feared he would jump from her arms. An ambulance from Weems Me morial Hospital was waiting to ex amine the group. We didnt need them, Burnsed said. But a police ofcer gave one of us a ride to get his car. All of our cars were parked at the Carrabelle Marina. Burnsed said once ashore, the family went their separate ways. Some of us were leaving that morning anyway. They had missed their ight. I planned to stay till Tuesday, but I took my niece and her friend and went to Tallahassee. Other visitors who planned to stay until the following Saturday drove home. Burnsed said her family now is faced with the challenge of retriev ing their boat and luggage, which hopefully are still on the island. Burnsed said she loves Dog Is land, and the adventure will not de ter her from visiting Franklin Coun ty again. I love the Coast Guard, she said. They were just so wonderful, and the way they held the helicop ter so still, so close to the house in all that wind. They just did a really fantastic job. They had no idea who we really were, and they risked their lives for us. She said she exchanged email addresses with her rescuers and is looking for a way to thank them. Jim Van Lear, a Dog Island resi dent, said Wednesday morning that many residents still were without power and that there had been tre mendous beach erosion. We lost a ton of sand. But the storm surge has not been as high as during Hurricane Dennis (in 2005), he said. down there to sit through it or to have to cancel the wedding. Rob Olin of St. George Island performed a heroic rescue in the midst of Sundays storm. He and his wife, Kay, have been watching a pair of ospreys raise a chick from their bayside island home. On Sunday, to his horror, the nest fell from the tree and broke apart. Olin ran into the deluge search ing for the chick while the nestlings parents circled frantically over head. After locating the bird, he placed it into a basket and raised it high over his head. I wanted to give that poor moth er hope, Olin said. The Olins evacuated Sunday af ternoon, taking the little osprey with them. It was taken to the Florida Wild Mammal Association in Craw fordville. Olin returned to the island on Tuesday, and he and a contractor constructed a nesting platform at the site of the ruined nest. Olin said the parents were roost ing in the area. Eric Lovestrand of the Apalachic ola National Estuarine Research Reserve brought the chick to the new nest on Wednesday morning. Almost exactly one year ago, two young ospreys were successfully returned to a replacement nest on the island, erected on a platform after their own nest was destroyed in a thunderstorm. In that case, the parents were back on the nest within 30 minutes of the chicks re turn and successfully raised both of them. Other wildlife has been affected by Debby, too. FWMA Director Chris Beatty has received more than 50 orphaned pelican chicks. When the birds are blown off the nest, their parents do not retrieve them. Beatty and her crew spent more than 24 hours without power after the storm frantically working to keep the babies fed. If you nd an orphaned pelican or other injured animal, please bring it to 198 Edgar Poole Road or contact Lois at 653-5857.

SPONSORED BY Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com Page 8 O UTDOORS www.apalachtimes.com Section Section A From staff reports FWC to absorb DEP, DACS of cers On July 1, of cers and staff from the Department of Environmental Protection and the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Services will be combined with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in a move directed by the Florida Legislature and approved by Gov. Rick Scott. The 145 new sworn of cers will don FWC uniforms and integrate completely into the ranks of the FWC, resulting in more ef cient service to Floridians and visitors. We will have more eld-level of cers available to respond to calls, said Col. Jim Brown, division director. New and current FWC of cers will be expected to patrol state forests, state parks, wildlife management areas and state waters as a more ef cient and effective team. The reorganization will save the state more than $3 million during the next ve years and $1.28 million in recurring, annual savings. Through rearranging extra management and support positions, the consolidation will establish additional patrol and rst-response capabilities and expand law enforcement coverage, Brown said. The public can expect to see FWC of cers in state parks and state forests and call upon them for help. We will continue to provide excellent resource protection, boating-and-waterways services and public safety protection, Brown said. People should report sh and wildlife crimes, boating violations as well as environmental crimes and state park and state forest issues to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline 888-404-3922. DEPs Bureau of Emergency Response will not move to the FWC, but will continue responding to emergency chemical spills and working with law enforcement on environmental crime matters at DEP. DEPs emergency numbers, #DEP or 877-2-SAVEFL should be used to report environmental emergencies, such as oil and chemical spills. The consolidation of of cers will provide a more extensive network of environmental crime law enforcement coverage throughout Florida, BER Chief Gwen Keenan said. DEPs Bureau of Emergency Response will continue to work closely with its law enforcement partners on environmental crime issues as it has done in the past. In 2011, the Florida Legislature created a Law Enforcement Consolidation Task Force, which met to develop work groups and evaluate functions of several law enforcement agencies. Ultimately, it recommended that DEPs Division of Law Enforcement be integrated into the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. It also suggested some personnel from the DACS Of ce of Agricultural Law Enforcement the of cers assigned to patrol state forests and the investigator responsible for commercial aquaculture violations be incorporated. FWC of cers in the eld have been working alongside DEP and DACS of cers for years, Brown said. The consolidation simply provides an of cial, more ef cient method of serving the public. By Diane Hirth Special to the Times As night falls over north Florida, a band of 66 men and women split into small groups to nd bats in damp, mosquito-rich places in the Panhandle, such as Apalachicola National Forest, Joe Budd Wildlife Management Area and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. To ensnare the bats, biologists hoist almost invisible mist nets as tall as trees. They wait for hours in the dark. They have equipment on portable tables so they can quickly log in any bats they capture. The bats will be identi ed, measured and weighed, and a sample of guano will be collected before they are let go. Its best to think like a bat when scouting for bats, said Melissa Tucker, wildlife biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Bats are not evenly distributed across the landscape. Some areas are more important for foraging and roosting, and were still guring those things out, she said. Sites over water or with features such as re lines or forest trails that funnel ying bats into the nets are usually good choices. The grand total of bats captured over three nights: 246. Eight of Floridas 13 native bat species were identi ed in this survey: the Southeastern myotis, Seminole bat, red bat, Brazilian free-tailed bat, evening bat, big brown bat, Ra nesques big-eared bat and tricolored bat. Natives such as the threatened Florida bonneted bat live only in the southern end of the state. It was a lot of bats. We were really pleased about the number and the diversity. Finding eight species was exciting to us, Tucker said. It was an amount of information about bat species in north Florida that our staff couldnt have gathered on our own or in such a short amount of time. The Bat Blitz was conducted for three nights in late May as biologists from the FWC and the University of Florida joined forces with Apalachicola National Forest staff, as well as students and volunteers from throughout the southeast United States and as far away as Oklahoma, Kentucky and Ohio. The blitz, sponsored by the Florida Bat Working Group in conjunction with the Southeastern Bat Diversity Network, was held for the rst time in Florida. How are bats doing in Florida? In general, we have a sense in Florida that our common species of bats are probably doing OK, said Tucker, acknowledging, We do not have a lot of baseline information to draw from. The deadly white-nose syndrome that has decimated many cave-roosting bat species throughout the eastern United States has not been detected in Florida. The disease is caused by a fungus found in cold caves and affects bats as they hibernate. With Floridas relatively warm winters, few bats hibernate here, so there is hope bats in the state wont experience its devastating effects. Still, to prevent a potential spread of the fungus, Bat Blitz biologists were extremely careful about decontaminating equipment between every bat examination and at the end of every night, as well as forbidding anyone from bringing in equipment from out of state. Florida bats play a major role in insect control, consuming moths that destroy crops and dining upon mosquitoes. Some bats also pollinate owers, although all bats in Florida are insectivores. How to help bats? Use insecticide sparingly and with caution. Its always nice to put out bat houses, Tucker said. And if you come across bats in tree cavities, palm fronds or Spanish moss, step back and give them their space. More photos of Florida bats are available at: ic.kr/s/aHsjzdzk9A.

Yucca grow readily in region By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com Yucca is a genus of about 40-plus species in the agave family which grow in warm and dry areas of Central America, North America and the West Indies, notable for their rosettes of evergreen, tough, swordshaped leaves and large spikes of white or whitish owers. It is found throughout the continental U.S. with the exception of the Paci c Northwest. Yucca has many common names. Colloquially known in the Midwest as Ghosts in the graveyard, elsewhere in the U.S., it is called Adams needle, bear grass, dagger plant, our lords candle, soapweed and Spanish bayonet. The yucca ower is the state ower of New Mexico. Yuccas are pollinated exclusively by yucca moths and while visiting each ower, the moth lays an egg; the moth larva then feeds on some of the developing seeds, always leaving enough seed to perpetuate the species. Yucca species are the host plants for the caterpillars of the Yucca Giant-Skipper and several other closely related butter ies. Yuccas are widely grown as ornamental plants and Yucca aloifolia, the species most commonly seen in our area is actually an escaped garden plant. Since yuccas are drought and salt tolerant, they are excellent for our area. The owers appear only brie y in the spring but the foliage makes a dramatic backdrop. Remember, the sharp points of the leaves when placing yucca. This plant spreads slowly and grows to be around 5 feet tall. Many species of yucca have edible parts, including fruits, seeds, owers, and more rarely roots, which are boiled or sliced and fried like potatoes. Although unfamiliar to many people, the roots are commercially available in many areas and are a high ber food. Roots of soapweed yucca, Yucca elata, are used as a shampoo in Native American rituals and to wash blankets. Dried yucca leaves and trunk bers make excellent tinder. In rural Appalachian areas, yucca leaves are referred to as meat hangers. Their sharp-spined tips were used to puncture meat and knotted to form a loop with which to hang meat for salt curing or in smoking houses. Native Americans used a tea made from Yucca lamentosa, the local native species, to treat diabetes. They also prepared a salve from the beaten root to treat sores. In folk medicine, it has been used for arthritis, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, high cholesterol, stomach disorders, poor circulation, liver and gallbladder disorders, baldness and dandruff. Yucca extract is used as a foaming and avoring agent in carbonated beverages. Many compounds from yucca have been used in the manufacture of new drugs.

Coach Mike Emerson praised the parents for their support, especially in helping to fund a pitching machine. He and assistant Tim Wheeler then went through the team player by player, beginning with eighth grader Trenton Lee, who was brought up to varsity in the middle of the season and appeared in eight games. Logan McLeod was cited for his play at second base, as well as James Newell, who led the team in runs batted in. Juniors Skyler Hutchinson and Seth Rogers were absent from the dinner, and each was given his props by the coaches. But the seniors were given the most attention, and each was presented their framed jersey. Zach Armistead threw every big game I had, said Emerson. A lot of pressure on the kid. Chance Buffkin was cited for his enthusiastic play, and Austin Larkin for his consistency, after being moved to shortstop from second base. Emerson shared the coaches affection for Colton Sheridan, a workhorse behind the plate, and Marcus Dalton, who was leading in batting average before an off-theeld hand injury ended his season. The team, which split this year against Port St. Joe, last four of its outings by one run, and showed themselves to be a gutsy bunch, who never said die before the last out. Larkin was presented the Coaches Award, and was cited by Emerson for never complaining and leading quietly on and off the eld. Armistead, who posted the teams lowest earned run average at 3.44, was given the teams Defensive Player Award. The Offensive Player Award went to Walden, who edged out Newell for the honor. Waldens batting average at .346 trailed Newell by a few points. But Emerson said he gave the senior the award for his hitting streak over the last four games, including four hits in one game against South Walton. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894| @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com At a May 27 banquet, members of the varsity and junior varsity Lady Seahawks softball teams were honored for their 2012 season. Sally Wheeler, who coaches the JV squad, opened the banquet at the high school cafetorium by talking about the pride she has in her players. They come and go at a school this small, she said. The JV program is all about building your program. Everyone is working to get better. I think they helped our varsity team get better. Wheeler presented the Coaches Award to third baseman Marlin Lee, who later caught, and played both in eld and out eld before moving up to varsity. This goes to a player who shows up every day with a smile on their face. They work hard and they cheer for every single player, said Wheeler. Most Improved went to Miranda McLeod. By the end of the season, shes probably our MVP, said Wheeler. She led in batting average and played every position. JV players honored included Ashley Carroll, Robyn Segree, A.J. Butler, Kimmie Boone, Taryn Martin, Lacey Hutchins and Bre Barrack. Varsity coach Lisa Sweat began by thanking parents for their work, and presented special awards to Debbie Mock and Shelley Segree. Sweatt then introduced each of her younger players, beginning with Christina Collins, who she described as the kind of kid you want on your softball team. The coach was equally upbeat about the hard work Anna Lee and Chena Segree have put in. Both Gracycn Kirvin, Ally Millender, Krista Martina, and Vanessa Simmons were all absent from the banquet, and each were praised by the coach. Sweatt talked about the ne play of Morgan Mock, Maddie Newell and Scout Segree as well, noting how the younger players had come in and made a mark. But the coach saved her most lavish praise for her three seniors, Hunter Shiver, Morgan Newell and Maegan Andrews. Millender received the Academic Player of the Year Award, for having the highest grade point average, at 4.4. The Offensive Player of the Year honors were shared by Mock, with a .486 batting average, and Kirvin, with the highest onbase percentage. Lee was presented the Defensive Player of the Year award, while Rookie of the Year honors went to Scout Segree. Andrews received the Most Improved Player award, while the Coaches Award, for the kind of player you can always depend on went to Collins. Chena Segree received the Most Valuable Player award, for the person you really couldnt do without on your team.

Local A14 | The Times Thursday, June 28, 2012 people in attendance at the May 29 meeting at the Plantation, several others were able to patch in by telephone, including Jackel, who was on her way back from the annual meeting of the Florida Association of Counties in Orlando. In his opening statement, Colston made clear that given the level of WMS debt, and the fact the WMS owner Gene Brown rst approached Carrabelle about selling his company, it is a matter of when, not if, a change will be coming. The St. George Island water system will be sold. Whoever buys SGI water from WMS Carrabelle, Leon County water, Eastpoint, an investor group or an individual will implement user rates to include debt service on whatever sum is borrowed, in addition to ongoing operation and maintenance costs, he said. So, we the SGI water customers will again buy WMS for the new owner through our monthly water bills. If we are going to end up nancing the water system, why not own it ourselves? Colston said he and Bud Hayes, one of the directors in SGI, met with Bob Holmden and Paul Brandl of DEPs Bureau of Water Facilities Funding Section. He said the two men outlined the rules and steps Carrabelle must go through to obtain low interest loans, with interest currently at 2 to 2.5 percent. He said DEP would hold a public hearing in Tallahassee on Aug. 8 to review Carrabelles business plan and to determine whether there are any administrative, technical or other problems with the application. The DEP has only denied one application since 1996, and this was due to incomplete paperwork, Colston said. Carrabelle then would have four months to submit an application to the states revolving loan funding list. Colston told the audience he and Hayes had learned WMS initially borrowed DEP 20-year funds for the water line across the bridge, but stopped making payments in 2006. After a period of nonpayment, the principal and unpaid interest was renegotiated for a 30-year DEP loan, but WMS hasnt made a payment on this loan since 2009, Colston said. DEP informed us that Gene Brown is currently negotiating for a $6.2 million loan from Fidelity Bank with some type of (federal) loan guarantee, he said.

The rates were lower this year, said Harris, who will be elected to another four-year term this year after facing no opposition. The average was probably between 6 and 9 percent. People are willing to take less, to bid on a lower rate. I think its because the bank rates are so low. He also said with money as tight as it is, those people able to hold on to their homes are watching every dime. More people are paying their taxes on time and taking advantage of the discounts, Harris said. Homeowners enjoys a 4 percent discount in November, and that drops one percentage point each month until the full property tax amount is due in March or taxes are delinquent April 1. Harris said 1,413 tax certi cates, totaling $1.52 million, were sold by days end, extending a steady decline in number and volume over the past four years. In 2011, 1,585 tax certi cates, totaling $1.96 million, were sold, fewer than in 2010, when 1,668 certi cates totaling $2.36 million were sold off. In 2009, 1,791 certi cates, totaling $2.94 million, were snatched up by investors. The county earned a 5 percent fee, $71,485, for its work. Also rolled into the certi cates amounts were advertising costs, which this year totaled $30,140. There were some new faces this year, Harris said. A Tampa rm bought a little over $300,000 worth. Tax Collector Jimmy Harris gestures to bidders as assistant Sarah Braswell tallies the bids at right. DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times TAX from page A1 loan, he said, would comprise $2.7 million to retire existing WMSI debt and $3.5 million for SGI water system improvements. WMS owes DEP $5.2 million on the existing pipe line loan and owes Centennial Bank about $2 million, which the bank assumed after assuming the assets of Gulf State Community Bank and Coastal Community bank, the former Apalachicola State Bank. If Carrabelle can get up to a $15 million 2.5 percent loan, they could possibly re nance some other water/sewer debt, said Colston, who suggested that WMSs liabilities exceed its assets, although that issue was not fully discussed. The island could form its own water company, apply for a low-interest DEP loan and possibly convince the county to approve creating municipal service bene t units exclusively for islanders, similar to what now funds the islands re department. We would be in control of our own destiny, Colston said. We could then negotiate a price with WMS based on their actual worth. The operation and maintenance of the system could be done by a contractor such as Eastpoint water, Carrabelle or others, or we could form our own water department. The possibility of MSBUs also was mentioned at the May 29 meeting, but few details have been forthcoming. Members of the newly formed SGI Water District LLC include Colston, Hayes, Ed Aguilar, Tom Slocum, Karen Rudder and Don Murray. WMS rate hike yet undetermined A huge hearing before Public Service Commission regulators, held on the island in April, focused on whether WMS would be granted a rate hike. Islanders strongly objected to seeing their rates go up, and this issue had been the hottest topic in the weeks leading up to word the water company might be sold. Colston said WMS has yet to respond to several questions raised by the Ofce of Public Counsel, the consumer watchdog arm of the PSC. WMS had ve months to respond to the questions but objected to the number of questions, and the case has not been resolved, he said. These were questions about the credibility of the nancial information, which WMS has to date refused to answer or clarify. The petition to raise rates is on hold. He said WMS met with DEP to discuss how to generate funds to make the companys $162,012 loan payment every 6 months and proposed to charge $10,000 per new connection. DEP pointed out that last year, WMS had a total of nine new connections and that wasnt near enough to make the payments, Colston said. WMS left the DEP meeting without con rming they could make payments. The DEP is concerned that WMS doesnt have and cant produce enough cash to make the payments. If WMS cant meet its debt obligations, DEP may seek a legal remedy. Colston said task force members have reviewed both the PSC submittal and WMSs annual nancial reports, and neither indicate a nancially healthy WMS. Given what appears to be WMSs nancial situation, it is easy to understand why they are in such a hurry to get Carrabelle to sign on the dotted line. We the SGI task force sincerely recommend and hope that Carrabelle will have the foresight to have an independent analysis of the WMSs nances before making any decisions. Colston said the islanders are contemplating legal action to slow the revolving loan process down, but he did not discuss options. Jackel con rmed that legal options are in the realm of possibility but also did not offer details. The question is, Does Carrabelle have jurisdictional authority to go 22 miles down the road? she said. We will be talking with (County Attorney) Michael Shuler to help us determine the legal answer to this question.

Interest is building for a 3 p.m. public hearing at the Carrabelle Municipal Complex, 1001 Gray Ave., to address a controversial topic that rst surfaced just six weeks ago: that Carrabelle is seeking a $15 million loan from the Florida Department of Environmental Protections state revolving loan fund to buy the assets of Water Management Services Inc., the water company that By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The number and total value of the countys delinquent tax certificates continue to decline, but the demand remains high for them among investors. On May 25 in the jury room on the third oor of the county courthouse, Tax Collector Jimmy Harris stayed on the sunny side as he conducted one of the states few remaining live auctions of delinquent tax certi cates. At least 60 of Floridas 67 counties have opted for online auctions, but Harris said the bidders who have come by year after year want to keep it the way it is. The people always enjoy the sale, he said. My bidders dont want online bidding; they like the live sale. This year, with interest rates on savings accounts and certi cates of deposits near record lows, about 75 active bidders packed the jury room to see how well they could do. Bidding against one another, they drove down the interest rates paid on the certi cates from a starting point of 1.5 percent per month, or 18 percent per year, simple interest. Buyers willing to offer the lowest interest rate (it can be as low as 0 percent) can then buy the lien for the property. But even if they bid zero and the debtor pays off his delinquent taxes, they still will recoup their investment, plus a minimum of the rst 5 months interest. If a tax lien is not paid off by the property owner within a two-year period, the lien holder who has bought the certi cate then can exercise their right to foreclose on the property within seven years from the date of the certi cates purchase. Florida tax liens have priority over all other Gail Riegelmayer is a spokesman for St. George Island Water, the entity representing the islanders interests.DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The TimesIsland water debate boils Delinquent tax volume continues to shrink IndexOpinion . . . . . .

County commissioners declared a state of emergency at 8:15 a.m. Sunday and by 11 a.m. had closed the seven-mile long Bryant Patton Bridge that spans Eastpoint and St. George Island. By 4 p.m., after winds subsided from their earlier 60 mph highs, county of cials ordered a mandatory evacuation of Alligator Point, St. George Island and low-lying areas of the county. They equated it to a (Hurricane) Dennis event, which is a water event, said Tom Durham, public information of cer for Franklin County Emergency Management. He said law enforcement personnel began convoying people off the island. The bridge reopened Tuesday to business people and homeowners and on Wednesday was completely reopened. An 8 p.m. curfew remains in effect because of the power outage. With sustained winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusts as high as 60 mph, Durham said the storm dislodged a Progress Energy barge early Sunday and smashed it into the shing pier off St. George Island, just a few hundred feet from the shore.. No one was injured in the incident.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Mobile received a cellphone call about 12:30 p.m. from a man who said his family of ve adults, two children aged 10 and 12, two teenaged girls and two dogs was stranded in a beach house completely surrounded by water on a narrow sandbar at the southwest portion of the island. Caroline Burnsed of Leesburg, a member of the vacation party, said the house on the island south of Carrabelle is owned by family members. The family had monitored the weather before coming to the island for their holiday but were stunned by the ferocity of Debby.

He said the barge was used to transport the new power poles installed in the bay and was carrying no cargo when it broke loose from its moorings. It did not appear the barge damaged the new bridge, Durham said. Early Sunday afternoon, law enforcement ordered the John Gorrie Bridge, which spans Apalachicola to Eastpoint, also closed, but it reopened a few h ours later.  About 2,000 customers on St. George Island have been without power since Sunday morning. The St. George Island Bridge is open and mandatory evacuation has been lifted, but Sumner said as of 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, 2,000 of the 9,600 customers in the county still were without power, mostly on the island. Weve been able to get out to St. George Island, and were doing some work out there, he said. Sumner said generators are en route to the island, and all indications are power will be restored to the island by the weekend. He said the new transmission structures and new distribution lines recently installed on the island came through Debby unscathed. Three of the existing transmission lines were damaged by the storms. The lines were scheduled to be upgraded July 9, but the upgrade will be done ahead of schedule, said Scott Sutton, a spokesman for Progress Energy. In addition, there have been scattered outages throughout the county. Theyre at the mercy of the weather, Durham said during the brunt of the storm. Its just too mean to have anyone out there now.Flooding worse on east endFranklin County commissioners on Tuesday afternoon issued an evacuation notice for residents living along the New River, Crooked River and Carrabelle River. We have been advised that the water from the creeks and streams will be draining into our rivers, said Pam Brownell, the countys emergency management director. She said the evacuation was necessary because the National Weather Service has no way of monitoring just how quickly the water will be rising or exactly how much to expect. Just because you do not have ooding now, it is coming. Please take all necessary precautions. Durham said the county is at level 1 activation and may escalate to level 2 Wednesday afternoon. He said two groups of people including a 75-year-old woman and an 11-year-old girl were evacuated by boat from homes on River Road west of the Carrabelle Bridge. The Florida Highway Patrol said Wednesday morning that County Road 67 remained closed at the Pine Log Creek (Crooked River) Bridge because of ooding. Lake Morality Road from County 67 to U.S. 98 is closed, as is County 67 from U.S. 98 to the Wakulla/Liberty County line. In Alligator Point, a voluntary evacuation order was issued Sunday before a mandatory one this afternoon. Steve Fling, chief of the Alligator Point volunteer re department, said a low-lying section of Alligator Drive was underwater since early Sunday evening. Weve got some minor coastal ooding in some low-lying areas, he said. He said the road in front of the old KOA campground was underwater since then as well. The road on the east side of it that connects with Tom Roberts Road where you make the bypass through campground, thats intact, he said. The east section of that approach, before you make a right, the outside lane is eroded in a couple places but its still passable. But you can divert down Harbor Circle; the bypass road is intact. Fling said two houses on Bald Point have had exterior siding blown off. Also, a section of screened porch on a Bald Point location blew off and took with it part of the roof. Some docks have washed away, he said. We are still under a mandatory evacuation. Id say two-thirds of the folks left by Monday. We had power outages yesterday from noon to 5 p.m. but weve had power since then, and we have water, although we are under a boil water notice. Scattered road closures also occurred through Eastpoint along U.S. 98, where the coastline was battered by storm surges as high as 5 to 7 feet. Sandbags were available at the county road department off Highway 65 Eastpoint, at the former Carrabelle High School football eld house, at the old state yard on Bluff Road in Apalachicola and in Lanark Village in the rear of the rehouse. The Franklin and Wakulla county courthouses were closed Monday and Tuesday but reopened Wednesday. In addition The Nest summer program was closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Tates Hell State Forest in Carrabelle has been closed through Friday. Grant Slayden, trial court administrator, said the court will seek a tolling order from the Supreme Court of Florida so parties will not be adversely affected because of the closings. The roof over the east end of the Franklin County Courthouse was damaged during Sundays heavy rains, causing water to leak down through the third oor jury room and holding cell and into second oor ofces belonging to the tax collector and clerk of courts. Several ceiling tiles fell and records were soaked by the leak. Furniture was removed from the jury box to avoid further damage. The ceiling in a meeting room on the third oor adjacent to the courtroom also sustained water damage. The windows at the rear of the courthouse also leaked badly, and paint on the adjacent walls bubbled.Rainfall records fall like rainNational Weather Service Meteorologist Kelly Godsey said Apalachicola set a daily record for rainfall Monday with 6.3 inches, nearly tripling the previous record of 2.4 inches in 2002. So far 12 inches of rain fell on the county during Debby, helping to make it the all-time wettest June, at 21.5 inches, washing over by more than 3 inches the previous record of 18.3 inches in 1965. And with three days left in the month, the county is nearing its wettest month on record, set in Sept. 1946 with 22.5 inches. The 9 inches of June rain that preceded Debby was already more than twice the monthly average of 4.3 inches. Sunday afternoon is when Debby started her deluge. By 2 p.m., almost 2 inches of rain had fallen, and nearly 1 inches fell between 4 and 5 p.m. For the next eight hours, heavy intermittent rain led to more than 6 inches by the end of the day. On Monday, it was nearly the same amount, with about 6 inches of rain.Weddings cancelled, chicks rescuedDebby forced an Atlanta couple to postpone, but not cancel, their plans to wed on the beach of St. George Island, the site where their three-year romance rst bloomed. I was really not happy that another woman was going to come between me and my wedding, joked Bartley Cross, a ballet dancer and dance instructor. She and Joey McGlamory, a personal trainer and massage therapist, planned to marry Monday evening and then spend the rest of the week honeymooning on the island, where her beau proposed to her in April. Cross at rst hoped to ignore the fact the island had no electricity but soon gave up after learning from the sheriffs ofce the couple wouldnt be allowed on the island. I do not want to get married in the courthouse, she said. So she and McGlamory have rebooked with Resort Vacation Properties for a July 12-19 stay, when they plan to have Nedra Jefferson, a deputy clerk of courts, unite them in holy matrimony. Im not going to let Debby keep me from marrying Joey, Cross said. The young dancer said she and her anc were disappointed in more than just the stymied nuptials. We love storms, Cross said.

The Times | A3Thursday, June 28, 2012By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Six Central American immigrants were arrested in Apalachicola last week, and charged with workers compensation fraud. In a late-night and early morning sweep through Apalachicola June 20-21, Detective Michael Smith, from the Florida Department of Financial Services, led a unit assisted by sheriffs deputies and of cers from the Apalachicola Police Department. Anna Alexopoulos, press secretary for the departments Division of Insurance Fraud, released the arrest report and probable cause af davits for the six individuals, but would say little else. The investigation is ongoing and at this time, the division cannot release any additional details, she said. Beginning at 9:15 p.m., and lasting until about 2:30 a.m., law enforcement went to several locations. Individuals present at the homes said questions were asked regarding the whereabouts of a list of people who had been employed at Apalachicolas Leavins Seafood. On May 15, Leavins dismissed 41 workers who the company said were suspected of providing inaccurate information on their I-9 employment eligibility veri cation forms. The I-9 requires proof of a valid Social Security number, birth certi cate, passport, or citizenship or resident alien identi cation card. Elizabeth Ricci, an attorney for Leavins, said the companys dismissals stemmed from an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) dating back to Nov. 2011. Nestor Yglesias, a spokesman for ICE, would not comment on the role ICE had in last weeks arrests. It is an ongoing investigation at this point, he said. Arrested last week were Agustin Huertos Paez, 33, 145 Avenue D.; Guatemalan immigrants Andres Francisco Diego, 21, 118 10th Street, and Victor Diego Gaspar, 53, 162 Martin Luther King Avenue; Mexican immigrants Aurora Leon Gordillo, 28, and Elvina Perez, 32, both of 268 Prado; and Honduran immigrant Marisol Reyes, 23, 342 Brownsville Road. Each was charged with a single thirddegree felony, as cited in Florida Statutes 440.105(4)(b)(9). That law makes it a crime for anyone to knowingly present or cause to be presented any false, fraudulent, or misleading oral or written statement to any person as evidence of identity for the purpose of obtaining employment or ling or supporting a claim for workers compensation bene ts. The crime is punishable by up to ve years in prison and a $5,000 ne. Ricci, who is not representing any of the accused, said a conviction could lead to deportation. A deportation case can be mitigated by other factors, such as length of presence in the U.S., a permanent resident or U.S. citizenaffected family, or if they themselves are victim of a crime, she said. I think in this case law enforcement is trying to make an example of how documentation can have a trickle down effect, not just on a workers place of employment, said Ricci. She said the recent rings, and these arrests, underscore the need for comprehensive immigration reform. Making employers dependent on an undocumented workforce needs to be xed urgently. Now were having families displaced, and businesses are having less clients and customers, said Ricci. This is representative of a broken system. Being in the U.S. without documentation is not a crime. People are doing jobs that Americans refuse to do. Its not like theyre taking a job away from an American.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola TimesBy JIM CLEMENTSSpecial to the Times Catch shares, or Individual Fishing Quotas (IFQs) have been used successfully all over the world for many years. They are simply a means of distributing the commercial quota of fish, or other marine species, set by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). Instead of fishermen racing to catch the total commercial quota, it is divided amongst the fishermen who participate in the catch share program. An individual commercial fisherman owns a percentage of the total quota in the form of a share, which allocates the amount of pounds he can catch each year. When a fishermen reaches his individual quota, he must either stop fishing, lease allocation from other commercial fishermen, or buy more shares. A few fishing organizations are criticizing catch shares for their own misguided reasons. Bill Kelly, with the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association (FKCFA), wrote an article in which he says he is against catch shares. This is ironic because his organization represents lobster fishermen who participate in one of the largest catch share programs in the Gulf. Access to the lobster catch share program could not be more limited. To harvest lobsters you must purchase a federal permit, traps, plus trap tags from other fishermen for as much as $100 per tag. You would have to purchase around 3,000 tags in order to make a decent living. At $300,000, plus a boat and traps, it is almost impossible for a small fisherman to enter the lobster catch share program. Saying the Florida lobster shery is not a catch share program, is like saying a street is not a road. In the grouper/snapper catch share programs you can purchase grouper allocation for 60 to 70 cents per pound in order to harvest a grouper worth $3.50 per pound. New entrants and the smallest shermen are more than willing to lease grouper allocation in order to make a prot year round. That is good news for the commercial shing industry and the American consumer can now enjoy fresh Gulf grouper all year. Along with 13 other long-time commercial shermen, I was appointed to the Grouper/ Tilesh IFQ Advisory Panel by the Gulf Council. We spent more than three years carefully designing the Gulf grouper catch share program. It was then voted in by substantial participants in the commercial shery by more than an 80 percent margin. The grouper catch share program has saved many commercial shermen from going out of business. The old system of an open shery with derby shing occurring before the commercial quota was lled and the season closed down, was unmanageable. No one could make a living tied to the dock. Under the Gulf catch share programs, the grouper/snapper shery is among the most accountable sheries in the world. Before he leaves the dock, a sherman must notify NOAA of his departure and what he intends to sh for. NOAA then begins tracking his vessel through a Vessel Monitoring System (VMS). If the sherman ventures into a closed area, NOAA sees it on the computer and mails the owner a ne, somewhere in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. Before the sherman returns, he must make a three-hour call-in to NOAA so they can have an enforcement ofcer waiting on him when he reaches the dock. Under NOAAs observation, every pound of sh that comes off the boat is weighed and subtracted from that shermans individual quota. It is a 100 percent accountable system, and neither the grouper nor red snapper commercial quota has been exceeded since the programs inception in 2007. Some did not like it at rst, but now commercial shermen in the Gulf realize how important catch share programs are, and how their accountability ensures a healthy shery for them and American consumers One of the main reasons catch shares have become controversial lately is because leaders of organizations like the FKCFA, and the National Association of Charterboat Operators (NACO) are trying to convince recreational shermen that not only are catch shares bad, but they will be forced on them. Nothing could be further from the truth. Catch shares are strictly for the commercial shery. They should not be used in the recreational sector, and no one is advocating that. They wont even work in a recreational shery. Congressman Steve Southerland wrote a recent op-ed that catch shares are being forced on recreational shermen. He is a recreational sherman who has been brainwashed by these two organizations. Perhaps Southerland should read the NOAA Catch Share Policy, which clearly states that NOAA, does not advocate the use of individual private angler catch shares. Leaders of these two organizations think they have to stir up controversy so they can justify their jobs. They are probably right. Who would join an organization and give money if there was nothing to ght for? In Michael Crichtons book A State of Fear, he describes how these types of organizations create a state of fear so people will send them money. FKCFA and NACO are perfect examples. The head of FKCFA, a commercial shing organization, is not even a commercial sherman. The head of NACO, a charter boat shing organization, is only a part time charter boat captain, but hey, dont take my word for it. Read the review by Rick T. at www.yelp.com/ biz/capt-bob-zales-zodiakcharter-eet-panama-city. Very interesting reading! Jim Clements is a commercial fisherman from Carrabelle. Thursday, June 28, 2012The city of Carrabelle is considering the purchase of Water Management Systems Inc. (WMSI) the water provider for St. George Island. In order to make this purchase, the city has asked for up to a $15 million loan from the State Department of Environmental Protection. A public hearing has been scheduled for Friday, June 29 at 3 p.m. at the City Complex in Carrabelle to discuss and decide on this purchase. It is important that you consider the following points and attend this meeting. T he true value of Water Management Services Inc. has not been determined. This will not be an easy task. WMSI has outstanding loans for several million dollars to the state and to Centennial Bank. F loridas Public Services Commission is currently considering a WMSI rate increase request, and important issues are still open from a preceding rate case that need to be answered. A ccording to the latest filing, WMSI needs about $3 million in upgrades and repairs. I f a private company were buying WMSI, the state of Florida would require that the true value of the company be established and the sale price would be based on that value. Since the city of Carrabelle is a municipality and not a private company, it is not required to establish this value and can pay a much higher price than the company may actually be worth. Then all water company customers would have to pay for it through their monthly water bills. T he responsibility for repair and upkeep of the water system falls on all its customers. While this spreads out the cost, do existing Carrabelle water customers want to share the responsibility of upgrading and operating a water system with all the risks associated with providing services on a barrier island? Franklin County commissioners have sent a resolution to the state, expressing their concerns about the sale and asking the state to slow down the process until more can be learned and understood. The residents of St. George Island believe that this sale is being rushed forward on an accelerated schedule before all the facts and gures can be collected and analyzed. Our interest is in receiving quality service at a fair price, regardless of the provider. But, since St. George will be served by the system, it concerns the residents that we will not have a voice in selecting the members of the water board that governs this utility if the sale proceeds to the city of Carrabelle. We also believe that the people of Carrabelle, as residents of a city that is considering taking on a large debt to fund an investment in a system of uncertain value, should be very concerned. Tell your commissioners at the public hearing this Friday that you want to take the time to understand the details and real value of Water Management Systems Inc. before they approve the purchase of this utility. Its just the right thing to do. Mason Bean is the president of the St. George Island Civic Club Here it is Monday, June 25 and it looks like Debby has decided to squat on Franklin County for awhile. The one positive thing that is readily apparent, besides the much-needed rain, is that we are fortunate to have dedicated public servants and utility workers in our county. Without fail, if the power or telephones went out, Progress Energy and FairPoint were on it as soon as possible and power and communication was restored; if trees and their limbs were down, blocking roads or causing other dangers, city and county workers were on the ball clearing the way; if people were in danger, our re, police and sheriffs personnel were there, rendering aid and directing trafc.

For two weeks now we have been going to the two Project Impact sites, Mondays at the City Center and Tuesdays at the ABC School. Guest readers have included Dawn Radford, Nancy Luther, Deborah Miller and Jody Rosenbaum (hope I didnt forget anyone). Susan Clementson, chair of the Library Board, has been rolling up her sleeves with Coordinator Julie OMalley and yours truly, the librarian. Special thanks go to Robin V (really Vroegop) and her husband Mike, who pinch hit this last Monday. She has taken on the reading to the high schoolers who are settling in on a chapter book. We have been reading some really cute books like The Elves and the Shoemaker by Paul Galdone. Its the story of how the shoemaker and his wife make clothes for the elves who have been making the shoes for them. You can be sure the little readers noticed that the elves did not have clothes to begin with. The Sandman by Ralph Fletcher is also a cute tale of nding that dragon scales, ground down into powder, can cure sleeplessness. The best by far, however, has been The Genie Scheme by Kimberly Jones. The story opens with a girl being kind to a bag lady and buying her a hat. When the bag lady shows up in her bedroom and announces she is a genie, things get interesting. The chapter book will continue to be read through future weeks. Activities have included Elf Doorknob Faces, Worry Dolls (a tradition of Guatemala made from pipe cleaners and yarn), stories to ll in, hidden pictures to nd, and for the older kids, wishing bottles with stars inside and out. I was going to say that by the time of this reading we will have done our Week 3 activities which revolve around bats and owls, but of course the storm has delayed us. It includes my favorite books, Bats at the Beach and Bats at the Library by Brian Lies. He is the illustrator whose art graces all the promotional materials for this years Collaborative Summer Reading Program. Even the library cards that each participant gets have his charming art on it. Remember, students lose reading skills over the summer, unless they continue to read. Programs like this are the best prevention for summer slide and put students on their game when school starts up again. We will be taking the Fourth of July week off, but we still need volunteer readers starting again on Monday, July 9. Come join in the fun!

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, June 28, 2012 serves St. George Island. With the wrath of Tropical Storm Debby shutting off power Sunday morning and it not expected to be back on before Friday, the committee of St. George Islanders who have mobilized to address a possible water company sale is urging state of cials to postpone the pending hearing. The islanders were going to ask for a slowdown (of the process), and then bam, on Sunday were taken out. The communications committee drafted the email blast, but we couldnt do it because the computers were out, said Gail Riegelmayer, a spokesman for the newly created St. George Island Water LLC, the entity representing the islanders interests. Were dead in the water. Nobodys here to receive it, she said. People are incapacitated. Theyre not here. More than 100 people, nearly all of them islanders, showed up at a June 21 meeting in the Plantation Clubhouse to hear a report on the possible sale of WMS from Mason Bean, president of the islands civic club; Newt Colston, a leader of the task force set up to address the WMS sale; and Riegelmayer. That meeting followed a May 29 gathering at the St. George Island rehouse that had been hastily called by Pinki Jackel, who represents the island on the county commission. That meeting was called in such a hurry because word had only just surfaced among county of cials about the steps Carrabelle had taken six weeks earlier to buy the WMS system. County wants loan application suspendedOn April 13, City Attorney Dan Hartman quietly led a request with the DEP to have Carrabelle included on a priority list for state revolving loan money, with an estimated project cost of $15 million. This project will further the citys ongoing efforts to consolidate the water production, treatment and distribution facilities throughout this part of the Florida Gulf Coast into municipal ownership, Hartman wrote in the application. Consolidating and improving these utility system facilities will raise the level of consistency of service and improve management ef ciency for the populations (from Carrabelle to St. George Island). Moreover, the consolidated systems will bene t tremendously from the resulting economies of scale and greater access to affordable nancing. Carrabelles lack of communication with county of cials before making the application concerned county commissioners, as did a host of other issues they outlined in a June 5 resolution passed unanimously. Commissioner Smokey Parrish and Jackel said they were deluged by emails from islanders asking for a slowdown in the loan process. The commissioners resolution, sent June 12 by County Attorney Michael Shuler to the Florida cabinet and DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard, State Sen. Bill Montford and State Rep. Jimmy Patronis, asked that DEP temporarily suspend the loan application so that a reasonable inquiry may be made into all of the consequences and implications arising from the operation of the islands water system by a city located approximately 20 miles away. The resolution said islanders had concerns their water rates may be set by an elected body over whom they are disenfranchised from and are thus unable to exercise their fundamental right to vote. The resolution said though Carrabelle had no present plans to physically connect services between (WMS and Carrabelle), such a connection in the future cannot be ruled out. It noted that such future connectivity of services may include central sewerage from (Carrabelle), which may adversely impact Franklin Countys growth management policies on this barrier island regulating densities and height restrictions, and possible environmental impacts and bene ts. Riegelmayer said she and as many islanders who are available plan to make their voices heard at Fridays hearing. We are not against Carrabelle per se, she said. What we are not in favor of is the rush of this. It doesnt give us a chance to fully understand why Carrabelle wants us and what their intentions are. In the meantime, the whole thing has moved so fast. Riegelmayer has been busy working to postpone the hearing, in light of the mandatory evacuation and complete power outage on the island this week. She has appealed to DEP of cials to extend the deadline for Carrabelle to submit their water facilities plan as part of the process for applying for the $15 million loan. It is my understanding that the whole purpose of a public hearing is to give the citizens of Carrabelle and St. George Island and anyone else in the public a chance to be heard regarding their thoughts and opinions (on the loan), she wrote. To proceed with the public hearing on Friday and to continue with the DEPs July 1 deadline would not achieve the intended purpose of holding the public hearing in the rst place. If it continues as planned, then the citizens of Carrabelle and St. George Island will be disenfranchised from having input into this process, which I know is counter to DEPs intention.Who pays off WMS debt?In addition to the 100 The Big Bend Area Health Education Center (Big Bend AHEC) is offering FREE tobacco cessation classes in Franklin County and throughout the Big Bend region.

A6 | The Times Thursday, June 28, 2012 Special to the TimesElementary, middle and high school students from ve schools in Floridas Big Bend got to see their conservation-inspired artwork take center stage on April 21 during an Earth Day celebration at Florida State Universitys Coastal & Marine Laboratory. One of the goals we have as an institution is to strengthen peoples interest in seeking knowledge and understanding of the ecological wonders that surround them, said Felicia Coleman, director of the lab. The best conveyors of wonder are children, and the most compelling way they can explore their awareness of the world around them is through art. Working under the theme Conservation: Taking Care of the River, Bay and Gulf, students from Franklin County Middle School, Riversink Elementary School, Medart Elementary School, and Tallahassees SAIL High School and Alfred B. Maclay School painted mural panels that showcase their visions of Floridas rich ecological diversity. The mural project is intended to showcase community and school-based artwork while boosting awareness of the need to conserve and protect our waterways. The river, bay and gulf are the heart of Franklin County, making us particularly proud to be a part of this awareness project, said Andrea Keuchel, a teacher at Franklin County Middle School. Our mural panel, Seahawks Protecting Our River, Bay and Gulf, communicates the students deep commitment to preserve these precious resources. Each participating school was given a marinegrade, 4-foot by 8-foot mural panel and instructed to interpret the conservation theme in its own artistic way. The panels were then mounted to the marine labs new Mural Wall of Art in Nature and unveiled by the students who created them. A sixth mural panel was also created by Koenig Brothers Design to serve as an anchor for the new wall. The murals remind us that healthy coastal and marine habitats are our life support system, providing ecosystem services for all organisms and jobs for many people in this region, Coleman said. The murals also represent the diverse array of research projects in which our scientists are engaged and may even serve as a means of attracting more young people to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics relevant to marine systems. To see pictures of the new student-created murals, visit www.facebook. com/FSUCML. To learn more about the work of the marine lab, visit www. marinelab.fsu.edu The mission of the marine lab is to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research focused on the coastal and marine ecosystems of the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, with a focus on solving the ecological problems faced by the region by providing the scienti c underpinnings for informed policy decisions. Research is conducted by faculty, postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate investigators from FSU and other universities throughout the world. The laboratory collaborates with scientists from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries, the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge.

Thanks for saving TaShawn Jones life on Fathers Day at the beach. Patrick and the unknown male risked their lives pulling TaShawn from the water after a strong rip current swept him off his feet and carried him nearly 60 yards away. Fighting for his life, Mary Sewell performed CPR while the unknown female made a split-second call to 911. Many tears owed and many prayers went up, but it was Fathers Day and truly my father Jesus Christ is our Father, so he showed up right on time.

Above is the Coast Guard crew that handled the rescue.boat, called a commercial vessel in Carrabelle to ask for a lift ashore, but the captain told them it was to rough for him to make the trip. As the tide continued to rise, they turned to the Coast Guard. An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and crew from Coast Guard Aviation Training Center Mobile deployed to their location. On board the Jayhawk were petty ofcers Michael Huerta, Andrew Sinclair and Robert M. Mackenzie under the command of Lt. Cmdr. Jason J. Dorval. It took between three and four hours for help to arrive. While they waited, the visitors watched part of a dock, a sink and a sh cleaning station below the house wash away in the surf. Burnsed said she was frightened because years before, a house on the same spit of sand was completely swept away in a storm. The rescue crew hoisted and transported the family to Carrabelle Thompson Airport, using a basket big enough for two adults. Because the chopper was only large enough to carry half the party, the rst group was ferried to the airport while the second group waited. Among the stranded tourists were two small dogs, a terrier and a labradoodle. Burnsed said she put her terrier into a pillowcase before the rescue because she feared he would jump from her arms. An ambulance from Weems Memorial Hospital was waiting to examine the group. We didnt need them, Burnsed said. But a police ofcer gave one of us a ride to get his car. All of our cars were parked at the Carrabelle Marina. Burnsed said once ashore, the family went their separate ways. Some of us were leaving that morning anyway. They had missed their ight. I planned to stay till Tuesday, but I took my niece and her friend and went to Tallahassee. Other visitors who planned to stay until the following Saturday drove home. Burnsed said her family now is faced with the challenge of retrieving their boat and luggage, which hopefully are still on the island. Burnsed said she loves Dog Island, and the adventure will not deter her from visiting Franklin County again. I love the Coast Guard, she said. They were just so wonderful, and the way they held the helicopter so still, so close to the house in all that wind. They just did a really fantastic job. They had no idea who we really were, and they risked their lives for us. She said she exchanged email addresses with her rescuers and is looking for a way to thank them. Jim Van Lear, a Dog Island resident, said Wednesday morning that many residents still were without power and that there had been tremendous beach erosion. We lost a ton of sand. But the storm surge has not been as high as during Hurricane Dennis (in 2005), he said. down there to sit through it or to have to cancel the wedding. Rob Olin of St. George Island performed a heroic rescue in the midst of Sundays storm. He and his wife, Kay, have been watching a pair of ospreys raise a chick from their bayside island home. On Sunday, to his horror, the nest fell from the tree and broke apart. Olin ran into the deluge searching for the chick while the nestlings parents circled frantically over head. After locating the bird, he placed it into a basket and raised it high over his head. I wanted to give that poor mother hope, Olin said. The Olins evacuated Sunday afternoon, taking the little osprey with them. It was taken to the Florida Wild Mammal Association in Crawfordville. Olin returned to the island on Tuesday, and he and a contractor constructed a nesting platform at the site of the ruined nest. Olin said the parents were roosting in the area. Eric Lovestrand of the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve brought the chick to the new nest on Wednesday morning. Almost exactly one year ago, two young ospreys were successfully returned to a replacement nest on the island, erected on a platform after their own nest was destroyed in a thunderstorm. In that case, the parents were back on the nest within 30 minutes of the chicks return and successfully raised both of them. Other wildlife has been affected by Debby, too. FWMA Director Chris Beatty has received more than 50 orphaned pelican chicks. When the birds are blown off the nest, their parents do not retrieve them. Beatty and her crew spent more than 24 hours without power after the storm frantically working to keep the babies fed. If you nd an orphaned pelican or other injured animal, please bring it to 198 Edgar Poole Road or contact Lois at 653-5857. The rehabilitation center is in dire need of emergency supplies including sh. If you have unspoiled sh that thawed in the storm, you can take it to the center at 198 Edgar Poole Road in Crawfordville or visit www.wakullawildlife.org/. DDEBBY from page A2

Rick Scott. The 145 new sworn of cers will don FWC uniforms and integrate completely into the ranks of the FWC, resulting in more ef cient service to Floridians and visitors. We will have more eld-level of cers available to respond to calls, said Col. Jim Brown, division director. New and current FWC of cers will be expected to patrol state forests, state parks, wildlife management areas and state waters as a more ef cient and effective team. The reorganization will save the state more than $3 million during the next ve years and $1.28 million in recurring, annual savings. Through rearranging extra management and support positions, the consolidation will establish additional patrol and rst-response capabilities and expand law enforcement coverage, Brown said. The public can expect to see FWC of cers in state parks and state forests and call upon them for help. We will continue to provide excellent resource protection, boating-and-waterways services and public safety protection, Brown said. People should report sh and wildlife crimes, boating violations as well as environmental crimes and state park and state forest issues to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline 888-404-3922. DEPs Bureau of Emergency Response will not move to the FWC, but will continue responding to emergency chemical spills and working with law enforcement on environmental crime matters at DEP. DEPs emergency numbers, #DEP or 877-2-SAVEFL should be used to report environmental emergencies, such as oil and chemical spills. The consolidation of of cers will provide a more extensive network of environmental crime law enforcement coverage throughout Florida, BER Chief Gwen Keenan said. DEPs Bureau of Emergency Response will continue to work closely with its law enforcement partners on environmental crime issues as it has done in the past. In 2011, the Florida Legislature created a Law Enforcement Consolidation Task Force, which met to develop work groups and evaluate functions of several law enforcement agencies. Ultimately, it recommended that DEPs Division of Law Enforcement be integrated into the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. It also suggested some personnel from the DACS Of ce of Agricultural Law Enforcement the of cers assigned to patrol state forests and the investigator responsible for commercial aquaculture violations be incorporated. FWC of cers in the eld have been working alongside DEP and DACS of cers for years, Brown said. The consolidation simply provides an of cial, more ef cient method of serving the public. By Diane HirthSpecial to the Times As night falls over north Florida, a band of 66 men and women split into small groups to nd bats in damp, mosquito-rich places in the Panhandle, such as Apalachicola National Forest, Joe Budd Wildlife Management Area and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. To ensnare the bats, biologists hoist almost invisible mist nets as tall as trees. They wait for hours in the dark. They have equipment on portable tables so they can quickly log in any bats they capture. The bats will be identi ed, measured and weighed, and a sample of guano will be collected before they are let go. Its best to think like a bat when scouting for bats, said Melissa Tucker, wildlife biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Bats are not evenly distributed across the landscape. Some areas are more important for foraging and roosting, and were still guring those things out, she said. Sites over water or with features such as re lines or forest trails that funnel ying bats into the nets are usually good choices. The grand total of bats captured over three nights: 246. Eight of Floridas 13 native bat species were identi ed in this survey: the Southeastern myotis, Seminole bat, red bat, Brazilian free-tailed bat, evening bat, big brown bat, Ra nesques big-eared bat and tricolored bat. Natives such as the threatened Florida bonneted bat live only in the southern end of the state. It was a lot of bats. We were really pleased about the number and the diversity. Finding eight species was exciting to us, Tucker said. It was an amount of information about bat species in north Florida that our staff couldnt have gathered on our own or in such a short amount of time. The Bat Blitz was conducted for three nights in late May as biologists from the FWC and the University of Florida joined forces with Apalachicola National Forest staff, as well as students and volunteers from throughout the southeast United States and as far away as Oklahoma, Kentucky and Ohio. The blitz, sponsored by the Florida Bat Working Group in conjunction with the Southeastern Bat Diversity Network, was held for the rst time in Florida. How are bats doing in Florida? In general, we have a sense in Florida that our common species of bats are probably doing OK, said Tucker, acknowledging, We do not have a lot of baseline information to draw from. The deadly white-nose syndrome that has decimated many cave-roosting bat species throughout the eastern United States has not been detected in Florida. The disease is caused by a fungus found in cold caves and affects bats as they hibernate. With Floridas relatively warm winters, few bats hibernate here, so there is hope bats in the state wont experience its devastating effects. Still, to prevent a potential spread of the fungus, Bat Blitz biologists were extremely careful about decontaminating equipment between every bat examination and at the end of every night, as well as forbidding anyone from bringing in equipment from out of state. Florida bats play a major role in insect control, consuming moths that destroy crops and dining upon mosquitoes. Some bats also pollinate owers, although all bats in Florida are insectivores. How to help bats? Use insecticide sparingly and with caution. Its always nice to put out bat houses, Tucker said. And if you come across bats in tree cavities, palm fronds or Spanish moss, step back and give them their space. More photos of Florida bats are available at: ic.kr/s/aHsjzdzk9A. Diane Hirth works for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Yucca grow readily in regionBy LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com Yucca is a genus of about 40-plus species in the agave family which grow in warm and dry areas of Central America, North America and the West Indies, notable for their rosettes of evergreen, tough, swordshaped leaves and large spikes of white or whitish owers. It is found throughout the continental U.S. with the exception of the Paci c Northwest. Yucca has many common names. Colloquially known in the Midwest as Ghosts in the graveyard, elsewhere in the U.S., it is called Adams needle, bear grass, dagger plant, our lords candle, soapweed and Spanish bayonet. The yucca ower is the state ower of New Mexico. Yuccas are pollinated exclusively by yucca moths and while visiting each ower, the moth lays an egg; the moth larva then feeds on some of the developing seeds, always leaving enough seed to perpetuate the species. Yucca species are the host plants for the caterpillars of the Yucca Giant-Skipper and several other closely related butter ies. Yuccas are widely grown as ornamental plants and Yucca aloifolia, the species most commonly seen in our area is actually an escaped garden plant. Since yuccas are drought and salt tolerant, they are excellent for our area. The owers appear only brie y in the spring but the foliage makes a dramatic backdrop. Remember, the sharp points of the leaves when placing yucca. This plant spreads slowly and grows to be around 5 feet tall. Many species of yucca have edible parts, including fruits, seeds, owers, and more rarely roots, which are boiled or sliced and fried like potatoes. Although unfamiliar to many people, the roots are commercially available in many areas and are a high ber food. Roots of soapweed yucca, Yucca elata, are used as a shampoo in Native American rituals and to wash blankets. Dried yucca leaves and trunk bers make excellent tinder. In rural Appalachian areas, yucca leaves are referred to as meat hangers. Their sharp-spined tips were used to puncture meat and knotted to form a loop with which to hang meat for salt curing or in smoking houses. Native Americans used a tea made from Yucca lamentosa, the local native species, to treat diabetes. They also prepared a salve from the beaten root to treat sores. In folk medicine, it has been used for arthritis, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, high cholesterol, stomach disorders, poor circulation, liver and gallbladder disorders, baldness and dandruff. Yucca extract is used as a foaming and avoring agent in carbonated beverages. Many compounds from yucca have been used in the manufacture of new drugs.

Coach Mike Emerson praised the parents for their support, especially in helping to fund a pitching machine. He and assistant Tim Wheeler then went through the team player by player, beginning with eighth grader Trenton Lee, who was brought up to varsity in the middle of the season and appeared in eight games. Logan McLeod was cited for his play at second base, as well as James Newell, who led the team in runs batted in. Juniors Skyler Hutchinson and Seth Rogers were absent from the dinner, and each was given his props by the coaches. But the seniors were given the most attention, and each was presented their framed jersey. Zach Armistead threw every big game I had, said Emerson. A lot of pressure on the kid. Chance Buffkin was cited for his enthusiastic play, and Austin Larkin for his consistency, after being moved to shortstop from second base. Emerson shared the coaches affection for Colton Sheridan, a workhorse behind the plate, and Marcus Dalton, who was leading in batting average before an off-theeld hand injury ended his season. The team, which split this year against Port St. Joe, last four of its outings by one run, and showed themselves to be a gutsy bunch, who never said die before the last out. Larkin was presented the Coaches Award, and was cited by Emerson for never complaining and leading quietly on and off the eld. Armistead, who posted the teams lowest earned run average at 3.44, was given the teams Defensive Player Award. The Offensive Player Award went to Walden, who edged out Newell for the honor. Waldens batting average at .346 trailed Newell by a few points. But Emerson said he gave the senior the award for his hitting streak over the last four games, including four hits in one game against South Walton. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894| @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com At a May 27 banquet, members of the varsity and junior varsity Lady Seahawks softball teams were honored for their 2012 season. Sally Wheeler, who coaches the JV squad, opened the banquet at the high school cafetorium by talking about the pride she has in her players. They come and go at a school this small, she said. The JV program is all about building your program. Everyone is working to get better. I think they helped our varsity team get better. Wheeler presented the Coaches Award to third baseman Marlin Lee, who later caught, and played both in eld and out eld before moving up to varsity. This goes to a player who shows up every day with a smile on their face. They work hard and they cheer for every single player, said Wheeler. Most Improved went to Miranda McLeod. By the end of the season, shes probably our MVP, said Wheeler. She led in batting average and played every position. JV players honored included Ashley Carroll, Robyn Segree, A.J. Butler, Kimmie Boone, Taryn Martin, Lacey Hutchins and Bre Barrack. Varsity coach Lisa Sweat began by thanking parents for their work, and presented special awards to Debbie Mock and Shelley Segree. Sweatt then introduced each of her younger players, beginning with Christina Collins, who she described as the kind of kid you want on your softball team. The coach was equally upbeat about the hard work Anna Lee and Chena Segree have put in. Both Gracycn Kirvin, Ally Millender, Krista Martina, and Vanessa Simmons were all absent from the banquet, and each were praised by the coach. Sweatt talked about the ne play of Morgan Mock, Maddie Newell and Scout Segree as well, noting how the younger players had come in and made a mark. But the coach saved her most lavish praise for her three seniors, Hunter Shiver, Morgan Newell and Maegan Andrews. Millender received the Academic Player of the Year Award, for having the highest grade point average, at 4.4. The Offensive Player of the Year honors were shared by Mock, with a .486 batting average, and Kirvin, with the highest onbase percentage. Lee was presented the Defensive Player of the Year award, while Rookie of the Year honors went to Scout Segree. Andrews received the Most Improved Player award, while the Coaches Award, for the kind of player you can always depend on went to Collins. Chena Segree received the Most Valuable Player award, for the person you really couldnt do without on your team.

LocalA14 | The Times Thursday, June 28, 2012people in attendance at the May 29 meeting at the Plantation, several others were able to patch in by telephone, including Jackel, who was on her way back from the annual meeting of the Florida Association of Counties in Orlando. In his opening statement, Colston made clear that given the level of WMS debt, and the fact the WMS owner Gene Brown rst approached Carrabelle about selling his company, it is a matter of when, not if, a change will be coming. The St. George Island water system will be sold. Whoever buys SGI water from WMS Carrabelle, Leon County water, Eastpoint, an investor group or an individual will implement user rates to include debt service on whatever sum is borrowed, in addition to ongoing operation and maintenance costs, he said. So, we the SGI water customers will again buy WMS for the new owner through our monthly water bills. If we are going to end up nancing the water system, why not own it ourselves? Colston said he and Bud Hayes, one of the directors in SGI, met with Bob Holmden and Paul Brandl of DEPs Bureau of Water Facilities Funding Section. He said the two men outlined the rules and steps Carrabelle must go through to obtain low interest loans, with interest currently at 2 to 2.5 percent. He said DEP would hold a public hearing in Tallahassee on Aug. 8 to review Carrabelles business plan and to determine whether there are any administrative, technical or other problems with the application. The DEP has only denied one application since 1996, and this was due to incomplete paperwork, Colston said. Carrabelle then would have four months to submit an application to the states revolving loan funding list. Colston told the audience he and Hayes had learned WMS initially borrowed DEP 20-year funds for the water line across the bridge, but stopped making payments in 2006. After a period of nonpayment, the principal and unpaid interest was renegotiated for a 30-year DEP loan, but WMS hasnt made a payment on this loan since 2009, Colston said. DEP informed us that Gene Brown is currently negotiating for a $6.2 million loan from Fidelity Bank with some type of (federal) loan guarantee, he said.

The rates were lower this year, said Harris, who will be elected to another four-year term this year after facing no opposition. The average was probably between 6 and 9 percent. People are willing to take less, to bid on a lower rate. I think its because the bank rates are so low. He also said with money as tight as it is, those people able to hold on to their homes are watching every dime. More people are paying their taxes on time and taking advantage of the discounts, Harris said. Homeowners enjoys a 4 percent discount in November, and that drops one percentage point each month until the full property tax amount is due in March or taxes are delinquent April 1. Harris said 1,413 tax certi cates, totaling $1.52 million, were sold by days end, extending a steady decline in number and volume over the past four years. In 2011, 1,585 tax certi cates, totaling $1.96 million, were sold, fewer than in 2010, when 1,668 certi cates totaling $2.36 million were sold off. In 2009, 1,791 certi cates, totaling $2.94 million, were snatched up by investors. The county earned a 5 percent fee, $71,485, for its work. Also rolled into the certi cates amounts were advertising costs, which this year totaled $30,140. There were some new faces this year, Harris said. A Tampa rm bought a little over $300,000 worth. Tax Collector Jimmy Harris gestures to bidders as assistant Sarah Braswell tallies the bids at right.DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times TAX from page A1loan, he said, would comprise $2.7 million to retire existing WMSI debt and $3.5 million for SGI water system improvements. WMS owes DEP $5.2 million on the existing pipe line loan and owes Centennial Bank about $2 million, which the bank assumed after assuming the assets of Gulf State Community Bank and Coastal Community bank, the former Apalachicola State Bank. If Carrabelle can get up to a $15 million 2.5 percent loan, they could possibly re nance some other water/sewer debt, said Colston, who suggested that WMSs liabilities exceed its assets, although that issue was not fully discussed. The island could form its own water company, apply for a low-interest DEP loan and possibly convince the county to approve creating municipal service bene t units exclusively for islanders, similar to what now funds the islands re department. We would be in control of our own destiny, Colston said. We could then negotiate a price with WMS based on their actual worth. The operation and maintenance of the system could be done by a contractor such as Eastpoint water, Carrabelle or others, or we could form our own water department. The possibility of MSBUs also was mentioned at the May 29 meeting, but few details have been forthcoming. Members of the newly formed SGI Water District LLC include Colston, Hayes, Ed Aguilar, Tom Slocum, Karen Rudder and Don Murray.WMS rate hike yet undeterminedA huge hearing before Public Service Commission regulators, held on the island in April, focused on whether WMS would be granted a rate hike. Islanders strongly objected to seeing their rates go up, and this issue had been the hottest topic in the weeks leading up to word the water company might be sold. Colston said WMS has yet to respond to several questions raised by the Ofce of Public Counsel, the consumer watchdog arm of the PSC. WMS had ve months to respond to the questions but objected to the number of questions, and the case has not been resolved, he said. These were questions about the credibility of the nancial information, which WMS has to date refused to answer or clarify. The petition to raise rates is on hold. He said WMS met with DEP to discuss how to generate funds to make the companys $162,012 loan payment every 6 months and proposed to charge $10,000 per new connection. DEP pointed out that last year, WMS had a total of nine new connections and that wasnt near enough to make the payments, Colston said. WMS left the DEP meeting without con rming they could make payments. The DEP is concerned that WMS doesnt have and cant produce enough cash to make the payments. If WMS cant meet its debt obligations, DEP may seek a legal remedy. Colston said task force members have reviewed both the PSC submittal and WMSs annual nancial reports, and neither indicate a nancially healthy WMS. Given what appears to be WMSs nancial situation, it is easy to understand why they are in such a hurry to get Carrabelle to sign on the dotted line. We the SGI task force sincerely recommend and hope that Carrabelle will have the foresight to have an independent analysis of the WMSs nances before making any decisions. Colston said the islanders are contemplating legal action to slow the revolving loan process down, but he did not discuss options. Jackel con rmed that legal options are in the realm of possibility but also did not offer details. The question is, Does Carrabelle have jurisdictional authority to go 22 miles down the road? she said. We will be talking with (County Attorney) Michael Shuler to help us determine the legal answer to this question.
