The trips are free to By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@starfl.com Despite a downturn in June, likely due to the effect of Tropical Storm Debby, the countys bed tax revenues for the rst threequarters of the scal year are running well ahead of the previous year. Based on data shared this week by the Tourist Development Council, collections for the 2 percent bed tax, which is charged on all overnight accommodations, is running at $619,109 so far for the 2011-12 scal year, which ends Sept. 30. This is 14.9 percent more, or about $80,000 more, than was collected by this time in 2010-11, when year-to-date totals through June were $536,976. Judging from what we know about rentals for July and August, we will nish off a pretty good season, said Curt Blair, administrator of the TDC. Based on some advanced reservation reports, October and November look like they could top our records. Thanks to BP and our marketing people, we have certainly rebounded from 2010. May was a particularly robust month for the county, as bed tax revenues came in at $140,203, nearly $50,000 more than the $90,634 collected in May 2011, or a jump of nearly 55 percent. But June 2012, compounded by the effect of June 23 to 27 Tropical Storm Debby, showed a sharp decline from the year before. Bed tax revenues for the entire month tallied $143,805, a drop-off of about 16.4 percent, or little more than $28,000 below, the record-high June 2011 numbers of $172,029. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@starfl.com Before there were bridges in Franklin County, ferry boats made trade, recreation and social activities of all kinds possible. It was not until the mid-20th century that bridges were built in the county, uniquely divided by several large rivers and bays that separate the barrier islands from the mainland. Special to the Times The race for county commissioner for District 5 will be decided at the polls Nov. 6. A portion of voters in precinct 1 in Eastpoint, and precinct 5 in Carrabelle, will decide between Hank Garrett, who is running without party af liation, and Democrat William Massey, to represent them on the county commission. Massey, 53, 1002 Avenue D NW, Carrabelle, defeated incumbent Bevin Putnal in the Aug. 14 primary to advance. Hank Garrett, 48, 599 C.C. Land Road, Eastpoint, is running without party af liation, and so went directly to the general election ballot. Voters have until Tuesday, Oct. 9 to register to vote in the general election. Early voting begins Saturday, Oct. 27 and runs through Saturday, Nov. 3, at two locations, the Supervisor of Elections Office, 47 Ave F, Apalachicola, and the courthouse annex, 1647 U.S. 98 E, Carrabelle. Early voting hours are Saturdays and Sundays, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and weekdays from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Early voters need to bring valid photo identification, and a signature identification. Those without identification may vote a provisional ballot. The following are statements issued by the each of the candidates. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@starfl.com The use of personal otation devices, presence of mind and a knowledgeable and alert network of guardians all helped seven distressed boaters to survive boating accidents in September. On Saturday, Sept. 8, Of cer Percy Cook of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) responded to a vessel in distress at East Pass. Robert Bob Hoetzle of Tallahassee phoned 911 to report that his 16 foot open boat was taking on water and sinking fast. Winds were out of the southwest at 20 knots with seas of four to six feet. As Cook launched his vessel alone, Hoelzle phoned 911 again and said his boat had capsized, and he was now adrift in the water wearing a blue personal otation device. Cook arrived on scene offshore and began a search grid. Cook located the Hoetzle quickly and pulled him from the rough seas to the safety of the patrol vessel. Search and rescue was executed without air support in extremely rough sea conditions. Hoelzle was participating alone in a speckled trout shing tournament out of Lanark Village at the time of the accident. When his boat began to take on water, he tried unsuccessfully to drain it, then his motor quit. He had a cell phone with him in a plastic bag and called 911. When the boat capsized he was able to crawl onto the hull and called for help a second time but the boat rolled in the high seas and his phone was lost. xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx Thursday, September 20, 2012 50 WWW.APALACHTIMES.COM VOL. 127 ISSUE 21 Phone: 850-653-8868 Web: apalachtimes.com E-mail: dadlerstein@star .com Fax: 850-653-8036 Circulation: 800-345-8688 Opinion . . . . . .

By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com An attempted arson occurred in Eastpoint after the county commission ordered an area in Eastpoint known as Margaritaville to be cleared. At the Sept. 4 county commission meeting, Chairwoman Pinki Jackel asked commissioners to order that land located at Paton Drive and US 98 be cleared. The property is privately owned by Sandra Fields of Michigan. There is an ongoing congregation of people on Sandra Fields property at Patton Drive, Jackel said. Jackel said she had written to Fields. Jackel said the sheriffs department is not controlling the problem and that lewd behavior and public drunkenness were commonplace in the area. She said vagrants frequenting the property were fussing and ghting. Commissioner Bevin Putnal said the men were homeless. Jackel said, Even if theyre homeless the law has to be enforced and I would ask that they do that. Commissioner Cheryl Sanders suggested a letter be sent to the sheriff. The commission voted to write the sheriff, with Noah Lockley opposed. I would have to see it, he said. After the meeting, Alan Pierce, director of administrative services, received a letter from absentee owner Fields, authorizing him to post no-trespassing signs and clear her land. She was delighted with the offer, Pierce said. On Thursday morning county workers and sheriffs deputies set to work clearing the area at around 9 a.m. Pierce was on the scene to make sure that adjacent land belonging to Noah Goodson was not cleared in keeping with Goodsons wishes. The job was nished at about noon. On Thursday evening at about 10:45 p.m., Sgt. Wayne Nash was summoned to the Eastpoint Pavilion adjacent to Fields land to investigate possible arson. Sheriffs Department Investigator Brett Johnson said Nash discovered some charring on a picnic table and a pool of gasoline but the re was out. Nash summoned re ghters to contain the accelerant. On Friday, Johnson, Sheriffs Department Investigator Duane Cook and Brock Dietz of the State Fire Marshalls Of ce met at the pavilion around noon. Johnson said they found minor charring to a table and a stick with one end burned. On questioning possible witnesses, investigators theorized that the stick had been used to ignite gasoline poured on the table. One witness told investigators the resulting explosion blew the attempted arsonist from the pavilion and the re extinguished itself. Johnson said a possible suspect has been identi ed by several informants and a warrant has been issued.The investigation is ongoing. During the cleanup on Thursday, sheriffs deputies recognized Mike Holland 52 of Apalachicola who had an outstanding warrant and he was taken into custody. Pierce said he is exploring the possibility of leasing the newly cleared land from Fields.

Local The Times | A3 Thursday, September 20, 2012 June shows to be down a little bit, but the June numbers may be off because of Tropical Storm Debbie, said Blair. Some of the lodging companies have a delay in their reporting so July should be proportionately higher. July is traditionally one of the countys strongest months for bed tax revenues, which in 2011 posted revenues of nearly $148,000. A review of bed tax revenues for the 2011-12 scal year shows that every month other than June was higher than the year before, paced by February, which ran nearly 49 percent better than in 2010-11. In February 2012, revenues ran slightly more than $52,000, our about $17,000 more than the $35,000 posted in February 2011. January 2012 numbers ran about 21 percent better than the year before, about $5,000 better than in 2011, while October and November 2011 tallies were each about 30 percent better than the year before. At the outset of this summers county budget deliberations, Fran Edwards, an administrative staffer for the TDC, reported that in the 2010-11 scal year, $803,141 was collected through Sept. 30, 2011, an increase over the previous year by nearly $49,000. She said this money represents an economic impact generated to the county of over $40 million dollars from overnight rentals alone, not including additional tourist dollars owing in from sales to restaurants, gas stations, souvenir shops, and other tourist-related activities including shing charters and purchases of seafood-related venues. Edwards praised the county commissioners for your very wise decision to use the existing TDC contractors to promote Franklin County with the BP funds. Beginning with Helen Spohrers managerial and marketing expertise, she led the project with the assistance of the creative genius of 2kwebgroup, Bay Media, and Forgotten Coast TV, who developed promotional plans and accomplished expanded marketing that will bene t this county for tourism for years to come. Edwards said TV coverage was expanded from the eastern seaboard, westward as far as Texas, and north to the Canadian border, and statistics were captured through activities on the internet promotions. Social media was used to the max! Facebook, twitter, and Bay Medias creative email newsletters were used to continually e-blast information across the internet, she said. Our email database list has quadrupled in the past two years. She said local video was lmed for shing and culinary programs that will be shown on TV for years to come, and public TV lmed numerous footage of artists and artistic programs relating to Franklin County as an art destination. In mid-July, visit Florida set up a free satellite media program broadcasting live from St. George Island that reached over 30 cable and network stations at no cost to the TDC. Edwards said Josh Hodson, park manager of the Dr. Julian Bruce St. George Island State Park, recently invited all Florida state park managers to visit and network Franklin County to promote what natural, historical and cultural resources this county provides, and more than 200 managers responded.

Early on the morning of Oct. 9, 2010, re ghters summoned to Parker Street in Lanark Village found units 5-4 through 5-8 in ames. The apartments were a total loss because ames spread rapidly through a common attic. Unit 5-3 was saved from destruction because the owner had installed a rewall. The blaze might have been caused by faulty wiring. As of now, the weed-choked, charred shells of four of the ve units still are standing, and neighbors say they pose a health and safety hazard. Ed Hanson lived in unit 5-5, the only apartment that has been razed. He said the unit was a bank-owned foreclosure at the time of the re, and insurance paid to have it taken down. He since has moved across the courtyard from his old home. He said the burned out apartments are a dangerous eyesore. Nobody seems to have any authority, he said. Asbestos inspectors visited and put up tape that has fallen down. There are kids playing in the burned out shell. Ed Pattillo who takes pride in his unit, 5-3, and has invested signi cant effort and money in upgrading it, said he is angry. Last November, (Commissioner) Cheryl (Sanders) told the Lanark Village Association the units would be removed in no more than 45 days, Pattillo said. In a recent interview, County Attorney Michael Shuler said he is involved in slow but meaningful dialogue with the owners of the four remaining units. He said all four units are to be demolished, but when the owners tried to apply for a county demolition permit, they were told they needed an asbestos inspection to obtain the permit. He said as of the beginning of September, two of the units have been inspected, and two are scheduled for inspection. I will prosecute if they do not comply, but I am more interested in working with the owners, Shuler said. Pattillo said he doesnt want to wait any longer. Since the buildings burned, he said, We have got roaches and rats everything that we didnt have before those buildings were derelict He said he called the Health Department shortly after the re and was told that because it was burned out, they had no authority. Nobody claims it because its a hot potato, Pattillo said, They know who the owners are, and the tax department knew where to nd them. Pattillo wants the county to take more direct action to hurry repairs of the burned out units on Parker Street and suggested they put a lien on one owners property. He said one of the owners has at least two other rental units in the Village so its not like the county doesnt have anything levy against to pay for the demolition. Pattillo said Alan Pierce sent one of his neighbors a letter saying the county was depending on the good will of the owners to get the damage repaired Pattillo said he believes there is a problem with derelict buildings in general on the east end of the county. We spent thousands of dollars to attract tourists, he said, and the rst thing they see on U.S. 98 is Putnal Station. Putnal Station is an abandoned garage dating back to Camp Gordon Johnston located near Hinton Street on U.S. 98. Progress on Lanark demolition slow FILE PHOTO Most of the units in this apartment complex were destroyed in an October 2010 re.

TO ALL ADVERTISERS In case of error or omissions in advertisements, the publishers do not hold themselves liable for damage further than the amount received for such advertisement. The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word is thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word barely asserts; the printed word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word is lost; the printed word remains. Circulation:1-800-345-8688 There is a famous song from the late Stevie Ray Vaughn called The Sky is Crying. That is how it feels behind this keyboard, on this dreary, rainy Tuesday morning after the passing of Everett Gant. Gant, 32 and father of a young daughter, died in Bay Medical Center on Monday night, having never regained consciousness after being shot in the head six weeks, to the very day, before. He passed with his family remaining vigilant after a long, brutal ordeal and passed away without really knowing how many lives he touched. How deeply sad. For during a career that has only sporadically surprised, one of the truly stunning occurrences in my lifetime in newspapers has been the outpouring from people, on social media, the internet, letters, email, with signs on lawns or in front of shopping centers, reaching out and urging prayers and thoughts for Everett and his family. The number of people he encountered and touched on this earth in such a short amount of time is truly amazing and a testament to the man, warts and all. But today the sky cries. Cries at the ignorance behind the circumstances that left Gant lying in a pool of his own blood on an apartment threshold. Tears come from the hatred behind the words and actions described in the arresting afdavit, a document lled with vile words driven by thoughts and ideas that most of us, thankfully, nd abhorrent. The sky cries because a community has been scarred, has been lessened by the act of one man and how that single act, driven by a blind hatred all too prevalent in the world today, has left another dead, a life ended, a daughter without her father, a family without a brother, son, nephew, grandson, uncle. It cries because in the end, all the thoughts and prayers that have been sent the direction of Everett Gant and family proved no match for mortality, a battle we seem to be waging far too much as a community recently as young people are taken far too early. But if there is a glimmer, some light to be found in this senseless tragedy that took on more tragic proportions on Monday night, it is in a communitys response. The candlelight vigil held in the days following the shooting that showed a community coming together to resist, with a kind of human Kevlar vest, the bullets of hatred that still ring through the air. A vigil of common folks, of all ages and colors, coming together to say that the thoughts and ideas espoused by one white man before and after he gunned down a young black man do not reect community values, not this community, not at this time in history. There was light from the Lions Club of Port St. Joe, which immediately established and seeded a fund for the Gant family at Centennial Bank to help defray medical costs, which after six weeks are surely astronomical. There is also light to be found in the reections of a mother one month after her son was shot. Gloria Gant, a hugely popular and superb teacher at Port St. Joe High School, stopped by this ofce between trips to and from home and the hospital one day in order to get something out. She wanted, needed, to say something to the community that had tried to wrap their hands and hearts around her family and her son. People might read what happened here and think this is the most terrible place in the whole world, Gloria said that day. But I am here to tell you that is not true. This is a wonderful community, with warm, generous people who have been so kind and loving to us. This (incident) is not what this community is about. We just thank all the people who have reached out and supported us. That is Gloria and that was, in large measure, Everett. Strong of spine, huge of heart, gentle of spirit, a son reecting the values he was raised with, carrying them with him through life, no matter the ups and downs tossed in front of his path, self-inicted or not. And comfort can also be wrung from the outreach of people of this community and their refusal to accept the terms under which Everett left this world. Here is but a sampling in the hours after his death was announced, left on The Star Facebook page. And this is just a sampling: Cee White this is so sad to hear; Barrett Lowry Praying for the Gant family Jake Richards Prayers with the Gant family. Im so glad that the ignorance of (the shooters) actions and in some of the comments do not reect how our community as a whole responded. Nor does it reect on how the impact that Everetts life had on others. Sherrin Hill Praying for the Gant family. What a terrible loss. Woodyard Princess Adams My heart is heavy right now. Debbie Boatright My thoughts and prayers go out to the Gant family and to all his friends and he had a lot. Just breaks my heart that is happened to such a special person that everybody loved. Heavy heart right now. Veronica Barrington This is so sad to hear This is the time that Port St. Joe should still stand strong for this family in spite of this senseless and evil act Kelly Johnson Parrish Yes, how we all shake our heads how any human being could be so lled with hate. The sky is crying this Tuesday morning. Thursday, September 20, 2012 TIM CROFT Star news editor Making sense of senseless Mother didnt want us to play high school football. She was afraid wed get hurt. Leon was a pretty good player and the coach came out to the house one afternoon to recruit the two younger Colbert boys. To the embarrassment of everyone present Mom politely but rmly expressed her opinion of the dangers of the game. She let him know right quick that she didnt cotton to the idea of us getting hurt playing football. I dont reckon she ever glanced out the back window when David Mark and me were sword ghting with those sharpened cane poles. We were practicing for roles in Pirates of the Caribbean that we never got. Danged if he wouldnt forget that we were pretending! Hed whap me upside the head and then jab that pointed end in my belly. Id get mad and use my stick like a baseball bat! Wed sit down for supper wiping blood off our stomachs, ears, lips and noses. She apparently wasnt there when we crawled into the goat corral out at the Tri-County Stockyards. Mr. William McCaleb told us we could have any goat we could catch. I was probably nine or ten, David was twenty months younger. I got kicked in the chest just as I entered the ring; then run over from behind. One of them bit me on the leg. I got knocked down half a dozen times by the same big, ornery beast. The dust, sweat, hay and nays were ying. Listen here, we learned right quick that a covey of penned up Billy goats dont want to be caught! David dove and grabbed one by the hind leg. I jumped on his head. We proudly drug him over to the gate. Of course, wed ruined two shirts, David Mark had a black eye, I had hoof marks front and back We could have sure used some shoulder pads. Mother must have been stirring those brown beans when we dropped that knife off our elbow aimed at the nearest foot huddled up in pretty tight circle. I tried to get close but if I hit someone it was an accident. Not so with Leon! Hed ing that knife right at your big toe. The winner was the one that could get the knife stuck in the ground closest to a foot without breaking any skin. You were disqualied if the knife failed to stick upright or you hit esh. We called it MumbleyPeg. Although sitting here today I could easily think of some more tting names. Boy howdy, a pair of those Wilson high top football cleats would have come in mighty handy. Mom never went down to the big ditch and watched us swing across on grapevines. Sometimes youd have to get a running start and leap out off one edge to catch the vine to swing it over to the side. If you missed, the fall was about fteen feet. It wouldnt kill you but if you landed wrong it would stove you up a mite. If your hold slipped and you slid down the vine a little you would catch the other bank broadside. It would take all day to get your breath back. Ricky Gene didnt let go once when nearing the far bank. He swung back to the middle and was left dangling in mid air. We couldnt reach him and he couldnt swing to the side. Mom yelled for us to come to supper. I dont know to this day how he got down. The crab apples sometimes we calledem horse applesmight have been the worst. Those things were hard as brick bats and just right for throwing. This was an easy game. There were no rules. No battle lines. And no teams. You just grabbed as many as you could carry and hid behind a tree, the side of the barn or laid low in a ditch. The rst guy that came by, you let y with both barrels. Wed chunk and duck till somebody got knocked unconscious. A busted tooth or whelped up arm wasnt nothing. A football helmet would have been a God send to the crabapple game! Mom must have missed us playing pick-up football out in the front yard. We had no pads. Our uniforms were jeans and T-shirts. We banged into each other as hard as we could; we pushed, shoved, slugged, tackled, fought and kicked. We shed more than a little blood, nursed bowling ball size bruises and survived the near bout obligatory busted nger or broken arm from time to time. We played Stalag 17 in the side yard after dark. It wasnt too dangerous, except for the guy who climbed upon the roof with the ashlight. Or, if you got excited when you were running to avoid the spotlight and you lost track of where the clothes line poles or the guide wires were. Wed pull over a mid sized tree, put David in the top branches and see how far he could y when we let go. Wed roller skate holding on to the back of the milk truck. We had no seat belts in those days. You could run around inside those big Buicks! We loved to hang on the running board and try to catch low hanging limbs. Ten of us would pile in the back of a pick-up and ride to town. Part of the fun was hanging some one off the back until they cried uncle. Wed grab a shotgun apiece, climb on the front fenders of Cliffords old Ford and go pre dawn rabbit hunting. The miracle wasnt that we would actually hit a racing hare on occasion, the real trick was to avoid shooting the truck or each other! I signed up for the high school football team just as soon as I was eligible. I gured my body needed the rest. Respectfully, Kes HUNKER DOWN Kesley Colbert Mumbley-Peg sounds pretty tame People in general are strange. We are all different, thus we all have different ideas of what normal is. Strange is simply differing from the normal. Im trying to make a point and at the same time help you to understand why we are all strange to each other (for the most part). Some of the strange things people do or habits they have are obvious; some are not. Walt Disney, the creator of the most famous mouse the world has ever known, was actually afraid of mice. Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, was afraid of the dark. These are two examples of strange, which are also interesting. There are more. Baseball great, Babe Ruth, wore a cabbage leaf under his hat and changed it every two innings. The Babe thought it kept him cool. Albert Einstein could not be verbally understood until after the age of nine and Mark Twain never nished elementary school. There are interesting facts and people all around us; we just have to pay attention. In order to watch people in the right spirit, you must rst admit that you are just as strange to them as they are to you. This is said to ones self to justify the thoughts you are thinking. What am I trying to say? I am trying to say that in addition to nding humor in others, Im not poking fun at them as much as I am appreciating them. The other morning at work, I rushed in and told a couple of co-workers, The Panther has on blue jeans. They did not believe me and rushed to the windows to take a look. They gasped. One of my co-workers said, Go outside and look up; the heavens are about to part. One fellow left the room to go outside and look up at the sky. For years, we have studied the fellow at work we have code-named, The Panther. I cant say that we have code-names for everyone at work, but I can say the Panther is worthy of one. Ive never heard the Panther speak, though I have spoken to him on many occasions. Passing in the hall, I will say, Good Morning or Hello, how are you? He never says a word. Honestly, I dont nd him not speaking that strange. He works on the rst oor, which means to me that he probably has a PhD in a really specic eld that requires him to think all of the time and only speak on rare occasions. I understand. Over the years, my co-workers and I have studied each other and paid particular attention to the Panther. It makes work more fun and keeps our analytical skills sharp. Why do we call him The Panther? Im really not sure. I think it had something to do with Chevrolet. Does that not make sense to you? You see back in the 1960s, Chevrolet was hot on the trail, competing with Ford. Chevrolet had to have a competitor for the Ford Mustang. It was a top secret car/project, that Chevrolet codenamed Panther. As many of you know, the Chevrolet Panther actually was unveiled as the Camaro in 1966. Its a cool story; our Panther is interesting; its an appropriate name for such an interesting person. As noted, I do not nd the Panthers lack of communication that big of a deal. We do research and work on a lot of interesting things. Hes probably just thinking. However, there are few things that I nd interesting about the Panther. The Panther has to park in the same parking spot every day. There are lots of folks who are like this, but I honestly dont think the Panther would get out of his car if he didnt get to park in his chosen spot. His unmarked, but chosen parking spot is in the middle of a large parking lot. Its not on the end, its in the middle. We all understand this and dont park there. Whether the parking lot is full or completely empty, the Panther takes the same route to the door. It involves many 90 degree turns and never crossing a white line. The Panther will never walk straight to his car. Babe Ruth had the thing with the cabbage in his hat; the Panther wont cross a white line. Its strange, but I still kind of understand. CRANKS MY TRACTOR BN Heard A Panther in Blue Jeans The crab applessometimes we calledem horse applesmight have been the worst. Those things were hard as brick bats and just right for throwing. This was an easy game. There were no rules. No battle lines. And no teams. You just grabbed as many as you could carry and hid behind a tree, the side of the barn or laid low in a ditch.

Keith, 24, Carrabelle, violation of probation and failure to appear (FCSO) By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Federal Communications Commission has levied a hefty ne against St. George Cable, a company that has provided cable service to St. George Island for about 20 years, for allegedly violating rules governing signal leakage and the Emergency Alert System (EAS), and for failing to adhere to an order to cease operations. According to an FCC notice released Sept. 6, the company, incorporated in 1993 and now owned by Charles Sumner, has been ordered to pay $236,500. This amount consists of $150,000 for operating its system with excessive cable signal leakage; $37,500 for failing to cease operations when ordered and operating without authority; $37,500 for failing to install and maintain operational EAS equipment; $6,000 for failing to le the required registration form; and $5,500 for failing to respond to an FCC order to submit a certi cation of compliance. The notice said that on Sept. 7, 2011, agents from the Tampa of ce of the FCCs Enforcement Bureau inspected the St. George Island cable system, and observed 33 distinct signals on aeronautical frequencies emanating from the system, otherwise known as leaks. These leaks, the notice said, affected both radio navigation and communications frequencies, including international distress and calling frequencies that receive heightened protection. These frequencies are critical for search and rescue operations, including use by emergency locator transmitters on planes and emergency position indicating radio beacons on boats, it reads. Harmful interference includes any interference that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation service or of other safety services. Two days after the agents inspection, the district director in Tampa of ce issued an order to the cable company that ordered it to cease all cable operations until the excessive signal leakage was eliminated. The order said the cable provider could request authority to conduct short tests to evaluate the effectiveness of remedial measures or to calculate the CLI (cumulative leakage index) but could not resume normal operation on these frequencies without written approval from the Tampa of ce. Later inspections, on Oct. 12, 2011, and again on March 19, 2012, found the cable system continuing in operation, and observed several other leaks above the maximum threshold. The EAS ne stems from a violation of rules that require every analog and digital cable system to participate in the nationwide EAS network, which enables the president and state and local governments to provide immediate communications and information to the general public. These rules require all EAS participants to ensure that EAS encoders, EAS decoders, and attention signal generating and receiving equipment are installed so that the monitoring and transmitting functions are available during the times the systems are in operation. The FCC notice indicates that on Aug. 10, 2011, it received a complaint from a consumer alleging that St. George did not have EAS equipment installed. After agents inspected the systems EAS equipment and logs, and found it had not yet installed its purchased EAS equipment, the agents warned St. George about its continued non-compliance with the EAS requirements, reads the notice. The agents also warned the company that it had yet to submit a registration statement with the FCC. We conclude St. Georges actions were egregious given the potential public safety hazard, its blatant disregard for (FCC) authority, and a demonstrated pattern of failing to maintain its cable system, reads the notice. Of cials at St. George Cable have not responded to several requests for comment.

ANERR to install research stations On Aug. 21, Alan Pierce said Mr. Lee Edmiston, research reserve director, informed him that the reserve is installing four stations in the bay that will produce real-time data for anyone to access on water quality salinity, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH and turbidity. The four stations will be on East Bay, Dry Bar, Pilots Cove of Little St. George and one near Four Tree Cutoff on the Little St. Marks River. In addition to the water data, all four stations will have a small weather station measuring air temp, wind speed and direction. The stations will be permitted through Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and will be installed in the next few months. Sanders and Parrish to serve on VAB On Sept. 4, the county commission voted unanimously to ll several vacancies on the VAB. Commissioners Cheryl Sanders and Smokey Parrish were reappointed serve on the county value adjustment board (VAB), representing the county commission. At the recommendation of Clerk of Courts Marcia Johnson, Walter Armistead was reappointed to the VAB, where he has served for several years. Rachel Chestnut was reappointed as attorney for the board and Paul Currenton was reappointed as Special Magistrate to hear petitions. Johnson said both Currenton and Chestnut have received special training related to their VAB posts. Parrish and Sanders will continue on the board because the other commissioners declined to serve. Commissioner Bevin Putnal pointed out that, because he was not re-elected, he is not eligible to serve, and Commissioner Pinki Jackel said she could not serve while involved in her race for reelection. Two members and an alternate of the VAB are appointed by the school board. Mark Friedman was reappointed as citizen member and new this year is George Thompson replacing Teresa Anne Martin with Carl Whaley as the alternate. Credit card machine at the land ll At the Sept. 4 county meeting, Solid Waste Director Fonda Davis announced a credit card machine has been installed at the land ll. He said the move was designed to modernize the facility and will allow customers to pay tipping fees using Discover Card, MasterCard or Visa. County explores repairing island shing pier On Sept. 4, County Attorney Michael Shuler gave commissioners an update on efforts to repair the St. George Island Fishing Pier, which was damaged by Orion Marine Groups barge during Tropical Storm Debby. The barge destroyed two sections of the shing pier and left the majority of the structure inaccessible. Shuler said that, in a letter received July 6, Orion said they were sending an appraiser to examine the damage but he had not been contacted further about the appraisal. He said that since Orion is in the business of making marine repairs, they may wish to save money by handling the project in-house. Shuler said the repairs to the shing pier are within the scope of the uses allowed by the bridge fund, a fund set up at the time of the demolition of the old bridge for maintenance of the shing piers. He said the repairs qualify as maintenance and that the county has the authority to decide what repairs are necessary. He suggested the commission notify the Department of Transportation that the county intends to use the fund and adopt a motion authorizing the repairs. He advised commissioners to have Preble-Rish recommend how to repair the pier and the materials to be used. Chairperson Pinki Jackel asked Shuler to write Orion setting a speci c time limit for their response and bring the issue back to the board at a later meeting. She said that once Preble-Rish has nished their appraisal, the board will inform all responsible parties, including Progress Energy, of the results including the cost of repairs. I hate to use the maintenance fund because its also a demolition fund for when the bridge needs to be removed. With them having the capability, I dont see why they (Orion) dont just step up, Commissioner Smokey Parrish said. News BRIEFS

NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARING The City of Apalachicola has tentatively adopted a budget for FY 2012-2013 A public hearing to make a FINAL DECISION on the budget AND TAXES will be held on Monday, September 24, 2012 6:00 PM At Apalachicola Community Center, #1 Bay Avenue, Apalachicola, Florida BOATING from page A1 FWC Public Information Co ordinator Stan Kirkland said if Hoetzle had been swept out through East Pass and there was any time lapse, it would have greatly diminished the odds of him being located. At the time of this printing, Hoetzles boat had not been located. In a Sept. 10 email, FWC Lt. Charlie Woods congratulated Cook on his efcient, quick re sponse to the emergency. In an unrelated incident, the Coast Guard rescued six people from the Gulf of Mexico, approxi mately 25 miles from Carrabelle on Saturday, Sept.15. At 4:30 a.m., watch standers at Coast Guard Sector Mobile, Ala., received a call from 43-foot vessel Dirty Pool reporting that she was taking on water. The vessel had launched from Carrabelle at 7:30 p.m., Friday, with six people aboard for a dive trip. Shortly after the initial noti cation, Sector Mobile received two automatic notications from Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB) in the vicinity of the Dirty Pools report ed location. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and crew and located the six individuals in the water 25 miles offshore. Lt. John Raulston and Lt Christian Gintyrapp were the pilots on the Jayhawk. In a telephone interview, Raulston said they had some dif culty in locating the stranded men in spite of the fact that the six had followed good safety procedures and had the correct equipment. Raulston and Gintyrapp used GPS coordinates broad cast by the EPIRBs to travel to the scene of the accident but could locate no debris eld or sign of the shermen. They then went to a search area de veloped by Section Mobile and began searching in a grid. Once again, they found nothing. While Section Mobile worked to de velop another area, Raulston and Gintyrapp returned to the original coordinates where they spotted the boaters in a circle around a cooler. The group used marine signal ares to alert the Coast Guard crew to their loca tion. All six people were wearing life jackets. Raulston said he initially thought they were in a raft be cause their otation devices formed an orange circle. A rescue swimmer was dis patched and he determined that, except for one man suffering from seasickness and dehydration, the men were unharmed. Raulston said he believed they had grabbed the wrong cooler when leaving the boat. The one they had brought with them contained bait and so there was nothing to eat or drink and they had to be very careful not to let any of the bait go into the water lest it attract sharks. Chief Petty Ofcer Brenda Doris, a search and rescue co ordinator at Sector Mobile said, The rescued crew members demonstrated exceptional pre paredness, greatly expediting our recovery efforts. This serves as a reminder to all mariners that preparedness and proper safety gear are critical. The men told Raulston one of them woke up at about 5 a.m. to the sound of splashing water. He discovered the boat was go ing down and woke his friends. They barely had time to grab the cooler, otation devices and two emergency kits containing EPIRBs before the Dirty Pool sank completely. The air crew transported the six men to emergency medical service personnel waiting at the Apalachicola Regional Airport. All six people were able to walk off the aircraft unassisted. The Coast Guard recom mends that mariners wear a properly tting Coast Guard-ap proved life jacket at all times while underway. According to the Coast Guards Recreational Boating Statistics 2011 report of the 533 people across the nation who drowned in recreational boating accidents in 2011, 84 percent were not wear ing a life jacket. Kirkland stressed the im portance of communications devices when on the water. He said rescuers have to calculate the location of distressed boat ers based on the tide and that can be difcult. He recommends recreational boaters carry two communications devices in ad dition to a cell phone. VHF radio does not function if the battery becomes wet. An additional de vice like the EPIRBS mentioned above or pocket locator beacon can provide a location to rescu ers during an emergency. Both are water resistant and commu nicate via satellite. The signal from an activated PLB or EPIRB is routed directly to the Coast Guard so they can contact the appropriate state agency or re spond directly to the call for help within minutes of the distress signal. EPIRBs and PLBs are now available on a daily rental basis at some marinas. The SPOT satellite messen ger is another option. This device constantly updates GPS coor dinates and allows the user to transmit them to friends, family or rescuers. Kirkland said locating dis tressed individuals in the water in a timely fashion Becomes all the more important in winter, as the water temperature drops. Hypothermia will kill you in a short period of time. Raulston said, I would say fol low their example to other boat ers. They did a very good job in terms of safety procedures.

By KAREN MARTIN Special to the Times Earlier this month, our local Girl Scout Troop came to the adoption center bearing gifts of snacks, toys and a donation check from their cookie sales. This has become a yearly tradition and one both the girls and our animals enjoy very much. The girls are taken on a tour of the facility, given the chance to play with puppies, cuddle kittens and pat the dogs. We talk about the roll of the Humane Society, how important it is to spay and neuter their pets and what a great place it is for them to volunteer. These girls should be proud of the people they are becoming, the work they are doing and the love for animals they are cultivating. Good work, Girl Scouts! Happy birthday, Preshia Crum There was food, fun, friends and family galore on Saturday when Preshia Crum celebrated a century of life spent in Eastpoint. She was surrounded by family and friends at the fellowship hall of Eastpoints First United Methodist Church. After a meal of chili dogs and chips, Ms. Preshias family presented her with a huge cake. Everyone had their choice of devils food or vanilla accompanied by ice cream. Outside in the sun, kids of all ages enjoyed a tree swing or played impromptu games of football and tag. Ms. Preshia was serenaded by gospel music performed by members of her family and was photographed hundred of times over the course of the afternoon. Grandson Jamie Crum said she left the party at 4 p.m. a little tired, but very, very happy.

Box 610, Crawfordville, FL 32326.Jimmy Smith JIMMY SMITH Obituaries By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com The Franklin County Health Department is about to debut a new expansion into dentistry to serve the public health needs of stu dents and adults. Marsha Lindeman, the health department director, said two dentistry sites will open in the weeks ahead, one at Franklin County High School and the other at the Carrabelle health de partment site. To fund the program, Kim Barnhill, Lindemans predecessor as health de partment director, was able to secure $90,000 in state grant funding to renovate space at both locations, and to purchase equipment and supplies. The school district al ready provides the depart ment of health clinic space at the Eastpoint campus. The county commission agreed to fund the countys required $22,500 match for the Florida Department of Health grant. In addition, Lindeman said, the program has re ceived a $25,000 grant from the states dental program, to be used specically to provide dental sealants to students in the second and seventh grades. Lindeman said the county health department has hired Thomasville, Ga., dentist Renee Parrish to oversee the new program. In Carrabelle, Parrish will provide basic dentist ry, including primary and restorative exams, clean ings, llings, extractions and dentures. She will not perform endodontic proce dures, such as root canals, and periodontal treatments, such as gum surgery. Lindeman stressed that the health department did not intend to compete with dentists in the private sector and would not be accepting private dental insurance. The department is busy this week putting the nish ing touches on renovations that include the addition of chairs and equipment that include a new panorex digital dental x-ray that dis plays both the upper and lower jaws and teeth, in the same lm. This is a work in prog ress, said Lindeman. At the Franklin County School, Parrishs staff will provide dental exams, cleanings and sealants, with those in need of more exten sive dental work referred to the Carrabelle site Well do all the kids; most will be eligible for Medicaid, and well bill Medicaid. Lindeman said. The scope of services are focused on people who are eligible. She said the new den tist will do more detailed exams on the kids, mostly out of the Carrabelle site, while a dental hygienist at the school will be applying the sealants. We want to get the rst and second molars, so it keeps them from decay ing, said Lindeman. We have a captive audience there in the school. She said Parrish is now selecting personnel to ll the dental hygienist, dental assistant and dental clerk positions. Were also going to hire an eligibility-type clerk, who helps them get enrolled in Medicaid if theyre eligible, said the health department director. The department is now hoping to secure two ad ditional grants for the pro gram, the larger of them from the Blue Foundation for a Healthy Florida, the philanthropic afliate of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. If granted, this could entail receiving $100,000 a year for three years, which could be used for salary and benets. Weve had preliminary site visits from the Blue Foundation, and they are very supportive of this grant application, said Linde man. We should hear in October. The second grant is for federal dollars chan neled through the Agency for Health Care Adminis tration. These funds are earmarked for low income people, and can be used for either new services, or ex pansion of existing servic es, to expand access. We should hear results by the end of September, Linde man said.

SPONSORED BY Thursday, September 20, 2012 Page 12 Trapped fox negative for rabies From Staff Reports On Sept. 12, Albert Floyd, supervisor of animal control, said a fox trapped in Apalachicola on Sept. 7 has tested negative for rabies. The animal was trapped near the home of Lisa Hooker, who was bitten by a rabid fox on Sept. 6. A third fox trapped in the same area on Sept. 10 showed no sign of infection and was not aggressive, according to Animal Control director Fonda Davis. He said the third fox was be euthanized after a week in quarantine and will not be tested for rabies. Davis said animal control is continuing to deploy traps in the area and is in contact with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to determine how to dispose of any additional animals collected. He said they may be euthanized or held in quarantine and released. Predatory tiger shrimp have arrived in Franklin County waters. Tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon, occur naturally in the west Paci c Ocean, ranging from the eastern coast of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula as far south as northern Australia. Greenpeace has listed them as endangered because of the destruction of mangrove forests, their native habitat. These shrimp measure up to 13 inches long and weigh almost a pound, with dark and white stripes circling their bodies. The females are larger than the males. There is also a rarely seen color variant of the species with a conspicuous, wide, reddish-orange stripe along its back. There have been many attempts to farm tiger shrimp or giant prawns around the world. During the 1970s they were widely cultivated, but attempts to use them as a food crop were generally unsuccessful. About 2,000 were accidently released from an aquaculture facility in South Carolina in 1988. These shrimp have been spotted sporadically in U.S. coastal waters ever since. During 2011, more than 300 were collected in the Gulf, up from 32 the previous year. Tiger shrimp are natives of tropical waters and temperature is important to their wellbeing. The recent warm winters have probably helped them become established along the Gulf Coast. They reach adulthood rapidly and are tolerant of a wide range of salinity, which means if the water is warm enough, they can thrive in a variety of habitats. They are predatory and will consume almost any smaller organism. Tiger shrimp are edible. The following recipe was taken from www.Food.com. Garlic butter tiger shrimp 2 pounds large raw tiger shrimp, in their shells cup butter 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 6 garlic cloves, smashed 2 limes, juice and zest of 1 bunch fresh coriander, chopped warm tortillas Rinse the prawns in a colander, remove their heads and leave them to drain. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic and fry over a low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Cook the prawns in a large frying pan or cast iron flameproof dish that can be taken directly to the table so they retain their heat until they are served. Add the lime rind and juice. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute more. Add the prawns and cook them for 2 to 3 minutes until they turn pink. Remove them from the heat, sprinkle with coriander and serve with the warm tortillas. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@starfl.com At their Sept. 4 meeting, Extension Director Bill Mahan told commissioners the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is threatening island business and homeowners with heavy nes if lights are not brought into compliance with the federal law. Mahan said on Aug. 23, he met with Kelly Roberts and Robin Trindell of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Lisa Lehnhoff with USFW to conduct a beach survey on St. George Island and discuss the county sea turtle lighting ordinance. Mahan said two of six turtle nests that have hatched this year have become disoriented as a result of noncompliant lights. All three visiting wildlife of cers told Mahan the county ordinance is not strong enough and is not being adequately enforced. One issue that was pointed out is that the countys ordinance only covers homes and businesses built on lots along coastal construction line, Mahan said. The Endangered Species Act covers any light source that causes disorientation of sea turtles. During our walk there were bright lights all over the beach. The state people seemed understanding and want to work with us as best they can, but USFW said if the county doesnt do more, theyre going come in and enforce the Endangered Species Act, which would trump everything, and they said the nes would start at about $5,000. The county was one of the rst counties in the state of Florida to enact the turtle lighting ordinance, Commissioner Cheryl Sanders said. We were very proactive. I would like to see what suggestions the federal government thinks we need to do more than what we got. The retro ts on these lights are very expensive, Chairperson Pinki Jackel said. Every time it looks like theres funding to help homeowners with retro ts of the lighting, it turns out to not be the program that theyre told. Recently we were told that there was some sort of environmental grant or money available to homeowners and people got interested. It was going pay for local electricians and for the hardware and all, and as it turned out, it was not. It was a match. It could probably average $500 to $700 a house. There needs to be some handholding done on that to help folks get that done. Let the federal government show us the money that theyre going to use to retro t all of these things, Sanders said. In an interview after the meeting, Bruce Hall, a spokeswoman for Sea Turtles at Risk, disagreed. Hall has administered grant money for several lighting retro t programs. She said in the past, STAR and USFW have asked people who receive funds to install light blocking window treatments as well and display turtle information in rental houses. Grant recipients also agreed to grant access to representatives of STAR or USFW for inspection purposes and inform one of the organizations if the property was sold. She said under the grant program advertised in the Times last week, there were no such requirements because of the brief window of opportunity for obtaining funds. Mahan said he had discussed the possibility of further outreach about sea turtles with the FWC and USFW representatives. He told commissioners, I guess the ordinance was adopted back in 1998, and it might be out of a lot of peoples minds. I think the rental companies do a great job of letting people know, Jackel said. They provide turtle information in all their renter packages. I know the rental companies have let the owners know. I think the problem is the money for the expense of retro tting. Ive been watching this thing for eight years, Commissioner Noah Lockley. They fuss about them telling that every year, but all they monitor them is while theyre in the ground. Once they hatch and hit the water, they dont put no device on them to follow them or nothing. They dont know how many make it from there. The ones that do make it, they go down to Mexico and the people eat them. You aint spending all that money for lights and stuff. Its hard times. In a telephone interview, Lehnhoff said there is an extensive program of offshore sea turtle monitoring using GPS technology. Both the University of Florida and Eglin Air Force Base participate in offshore turtle migration studies, and though no turtles have been tagged on St. George Island, 15 females that nest on Cape San Blas carry tracking devices. The animals are dubbed with names like Love Bug, Chaka Khan and Pocahontas. Information on the migration patterns of these and other turtles is available on the website for Seaturtle.org. Lehnhoff said, based on current research, about one out 1,000 hatchlings reaches maturity. Id like to see you make contact with the property managers and make sure they are aware of what U.S. Fish and Wildlife is saying because $5,000 ne for improper lighting is very steep not only for the people but for the owners over there, Commissioner Smokey Parrish said. I think what youre talking about going out there and doing some educational stuff is very appropriate to try and avoid that. Make sure theyre aware of the suggestions as far as trying to retro t and make sure theyre aware of the consequences if we dont address that. I believe theyre important like all our other creatures, and I think we need to do everything we can to protect them, within reason, Jackel said. Im very proactive on that.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com The Lady Seahawks varsity and junior varsity volleyball teams won big Tuesday night in Gulf County, each coming home with a win against Port St. Joe. It was an amazing game and most definitely a crowd pleaser, said coach Hilary Stanton. On both sides of the crowd, people were on their feet all night, cheering on their teams. The cheers were deafening! The Lady Seahawks JV team, under the direction of Joy Carrino, won the first two sets easily, 25-18 and 25-10 in the best two-out-of-three match. They played well and had excellent teamwork, said Stanton. The varsity match, best three-out-of-five, was a closer encounter, and evening the teams district record at 1-1. The teams played four sets, dropping the first one, 19-25. But the teams came together and got their head in the game, said Stanton. They came back and won the second, third, and fourth sets, 25-21, 2517 and 26-24. They were close games, said the rst-year head coach. Both teams fought hard but in the end the Seahawks took the win! I was unbelievably proud of the girls. They were getting in aces and kills and coming together as a team, said Stanton. They pumped each other up the entire time and worked together. They guarded the net and were able to get in some good blocks and kills. The Lady Seahawks want to thank their fans for coming over to Port St. Joe to support them. The community is invited to come out to all games, home and away. We love your cheers and encouragement, said Stanton. The wins at St. Joe end a skid for the Seahawks, who opened district play at home Sept. 13 by falling in three games to league leader Blountstown. On Saturday, the Lady Seahawks varsity squad played in the Panhandle Fall Classic at Mosley. In the opener, the team fell 8-25 and 5-25 to the Mosley Dolphins.

A14 | The Times Thursday, September 20, 2012 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com An Apalachicola nurse has taken part in medical missions to Africa, one of ve Project HOPE volun teers participating in the rst leg of the U.S. Navys Africa Partnership Station 2012 mission in Liberia and Ghana. The volunteers worked along side naval personnel to deliver health care and education while living aboard the HSV 2 Swift. Sub sequent rotations of volunteers will also provide medical care in Benin and Togo and help support the mis sion in the Republic of the Congo and Cameroon. Fran Bauer, RN, volunteered on her second Project HOPE mis sion, having previously been on the USNS Mercy in 2010. Bauer is a hospice nurse as well as medicalsurgical nurse working closely with Dr. James Stockwell with his gas troenterology practice at Weems. She worked as a medical surgi cal and community health nurse in Liberia and Ghana. Cherri Dobson, RN, a neo-na tal intensive care unit and critical care transport nurse from Oakland, California, took part on her seventh mission for Project HOPE, work ing as a pediatric nurse functioning as operations ofcer for the entire mission. Along with Cathy Blair-Perrine, from Chester, Virginia, the nurses worked with two physicians Dr. Keith Williams, HOPE medical di rector for both rotations, and Dr. Russell Bowman, both on their rst mission with Project HOPE. Williams is an internal medicine physician who has completed his third year of a general surgical resi dency at Baylor. Bowman, a Sitka, Alaska emergency room doctor and administrator in the U.S. Pub lic Health Service, was formerly with the U.S. Coast Guard. Dobson said the volunteers, along with their counterparts in the U.S. Navy, helped stage a health fair in Freeport to address acute health issues of the people living there. The ve volunteers helped treat the more than 2000 patients who came through the medical site dur ing the three-day health fair. While Williams did a few simple surgical procedures in addition to seeing patients, more complex surgical patients were referred to Redemption Hospital down the street, where free care was provid ed. I only wished I could have done more, he said. Blair-Perrine set up a separate injection station for the many pa tients needing shots, and worked non-stop to perfect the patient ow process. She was also able to man age some health education teach ing for both her patients and her Liberian nurse counterpart. Bauer and Dobson manned the triage station, determining each patients most pressing medical concern and making sure they were seen by the correct provider. Sometimes it was a challenge trying to gure out what the pa tients were really there for because they use different terminology for their ailments than we do in the U.S. Dobson said. We relied on the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia who helped provide crowd control at the site to also translate for us. They were an invaluable aid, and were very compassionate to wards the people. After wrapping up a busy week treating patients at the heath fair, the three Project HOPE nurses took advantage of a day off by visiting James N. Davies Jr. Memo rial Hospital in Paynesville City, and working side-by-side with the health care team there. Davies is a small hospital specializing mainly in wom en and childrens health issues. Blair-Perrine spent the day in the intensive care unit and was put to work inserting IVs, doing dress ing changes and giving multiple medications to critically ill children. She was amazed to nd that one nurse is usually responsible for 20 or more patients in the intensive care setting, Dobson wrote. Cathy was able to do some teaching regarding thermoregulation of tiny infants and shared tips on workow with her counterparts. The visit was a wonderful op portunity to exchange information, share ideas and build relationships with the Liberian nurses and doctors. It is amazing to see how they are able to care for these children with the small amount of supplies and equip ment they have, Dobson said. Bauer used her expertise to work in the recovery room and at tend rounds on complicated post partum patients. She helped take care of a 23-month old infant with severe burns who had just come from the operating room. She was impressed with the vigilance of the recovery room nurse, who did not have all the monitoring equipment available to U.S. nurses, wrote Dobson. Most impressive to Fran was the stoicism shown by patients having painful procedures performed without the benet of pain medication. Dobson spent her time on the pediatric ward seeing a variety of patients, including many with ma laria. There were also two rooms devoted entirely to pediatric burn patients, she wrote. What was most amazing to me was that there were dened clinical treatment pro tocols that were used to make sure that each child received appropri ate care for his or her diagnosis. The physicians assistant who was coordinating their care was very compassionate, and took the time to teach the mothers about preven tion before discharge. At a rural site in Ghana the fol lowing week, the team was told to expect 150-250 people at most on the rst day. Instead, they and their Navy counterparts treated more than 500 people during the rst day of operations, close to 800 on the second day, and more than 1,000 on the third day. Even though the site is rural and not easily accessible, word of the clinic spread fast and people traveled for miles to seek medical care from the American medical team, said Dobson. Bauer spent the rst day helping in the Womens Clinic, where she was impressed with the prenatal care the Ghanaian women receive. Each woman is seen several times during her pregnancy, and all exam information is recorded in a booklet she brings to each appointment. Teaching is ongoing during the pregnancy and continues well into the postpartum period, Dobson wrote. Fran also learned several Ghanaian phrases used in maternalchild nursing! The American doctors were kept busy seeing a steady stream of patients. For the most part, the patients were healthier than those seen in Liberia, but several newly diagnosed cases of high blood pres sure were found and referred for treatment. Bowman told Dobson that here one was challenged to use ones knowledge base and instincts to make a diagnosis, rather than rely ing on the tests and diagnostic pro cedures used in an American medi cal practice. We just say, this is what you have and treat it, he said. Blair-Perrine and Dobson were in the front of the clinic triaging pa tients, weighing children, and tak ing blood pressure. Its clear how important this clinic is to the people because they all came dressed in their Sunday-best clothes, BlairPerrine said. With the masses of people dressed in brightly colored native dress, order was maintained with the help of the Ghanaian police and armed forces, and local nurses helped with translation, as most of the patients spoke a local dialect, Twe, and not English. Working with the local provid ers is one of the best parts of this mission, as they are able to teach us as much as we teach them, BlairPerrine said. In the spirit of being a part of the mission from beginning to end, HOPE doctors and nurses were all involved in the clean-up of the grounds after the clinic was done. Clinic workers were amazed and grateful to see that the team would all participate to make sure their workplace was left without any lit ter as a result of the visit. Volunteers Bauer, Blair-Perrine, and Bowman left for home after the Ghana site was concluded, with the thanks of the participants of Af rica Partnership Station. Project HOPE volunteers were integral to the success of this mission, Lt. Cmdr. Rommel Flores said.

NORRIS CLERK OF COURT Gulf County, Florida BA Baxter Clerk/Deputy Clerk September 20,27, 2012 89082T PUBLIC NOTICE STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO GRANT VARIANCE The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to grant a variance under Section 403.201, F.S., from the provisions of Rules 62-346.302(1)(c), 62-302.700(1), and 62-4.242(2)(a)2.b., F.A.C., to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, Attn: Curtis M. Flakes, Chief, Planning and Environmental Division, P.O. Box 2288, Mobile, Alabama 36628, (File No.19-0270106-002-EV), to allow the disposal of dredged material within Class II waters (designated for shellfish harvesting) adjacent to the existing Eastpoint breakwaters, and from the provisions of the Antidegradation Rule 62-4.242(2)(a)2.b., F.A.C. to allow turbidity levels at the edge of the mixing zones within Outstanding Florida Waters (OFWs) to exceed background levels within St. George Sound, a Class II OFW restricted for shellfish harvesting. The petition for variance was received on August 6, 2012. The Department intends to grant the proposed variance because there are no practicable means known or available for the adequate control of the pollution and turbidity involved. The Departments file on this matter is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Environmental Protection, 160 W. Government Street, Pensacola, Florida 32502, Telephone: 850-595-8300. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Mediation under Section 120.573 of the F. S., is not available. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to redetermine final agency action on the application, the filing of a petition for an administrative hearing may result in a modification of the agency action or even a denial of the application. If a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing or request for an extension of time to file a petition is timely filed, this agency action automatically becomes only proposed agency action on the application, subject to the result of the administrative review process. Accordingly, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities in accordance with this variance until the deadlines noted below for filing a petition for an administrative hearing, or request for an extension of time has expired. Under Rules 28106.111(3) and 62110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments action may also request an extension of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for filing a petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to file a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect. In the event that a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Any intervention will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. In accordance with Rules 28-106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3)(a), F.A.C., petitions for an administrative hearing by the applicant must be filed within 14 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of the notice or within 14 days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action; and (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes that the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action; (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agencys proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Departments action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301. Under sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a petition for administrative hearing must be dismissed by the agency if the petition does not substantially comply with the above requirements or is untimely filed. This action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department unless a petition is filed in accordance with the above. Upon the timely filing of a petition this order will not be effective until further order of the Department. This variance constitutes an order of the Department. The applicant has the right to seek judicial review of the order under Section 120.68, Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rule 9.110, Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure, with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida, 323993000; and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days from the date when the final order is filed with the Clerk of the Department.

CLASSIFIEDSThursday, September 20, 2012 The Times | A17 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By JOHN ROSSHEIMMonster Senior Contributing Writer After youve successfully completed a job search, shouldnt networking be the last thing on your mind? Not so, say networking experts. In fact, internal networking, right from the beginning, is key to maintaining the upward trajectory of your career. Heres how to successfully launch your networking campaign at a new job. Why network from the start? When you start in a job, youre going to be judged early, and you want to be judged as someone who makes things happen,Ž says Richard Moran, a partner at venture capital firm Venrock Associates. Introducing yourself to co-workers in a wide range of roles is a good way to begin. So networking is important from the get-go. But given your newbie status, your internal networking should be carefully calibrated. Soon after you start a job, youve got to increase your visibility, but without being pompous,Ž says Bill Behn, managing director for financial staffing firm SolomonEdwardsGroup. Whom to network with Even early on, your network needs to go beyond the folks in adjoining cubes „ without embracing everyone on the payroll. But where to begin? Start your networking with people who started the same job you have about a year ago, because theyll tell you what youre going to be measured on,Ž advises Moran. After that, says Gayle Lantz, president of consulting firm WorkMatters Inc., ask your boss who the most important people are for you to meet.Ž Next, seek out people with more clout, Moran says. Organizations have samurai who are out there doing the big stuff every day, and you have to figure out who they are and whether you can become one,Ž he adds. Making internal networking work When youre new on the job, you want to make a lot of contacts fairly quickly while also building your reputation as a hard worker. You dont want to be the person whos hanging out at everyones cubicle,Ž says Brendan Courtney, a senior vice president at staffing firm Spherion. You want to take advantage of those opportunities that happen during lunch or while youre getting coffee.Ž When youre asking for more substantial advice, be mindful of your colleagues full schedules. Breakfast, before the workday starts, is a good time to pick peoples brains,Ž Courtney suggests. Casting your network Its also important to extend your network beyond your department or division. Theres a body of research that says that your weaker ties get you jobs; your stronger ties are mostly to people who already know each other,Ž says Jeanne Hurlbert, president of Optinet Resources LLC and a professor of sociology at Louisiana State University. Strong ties can have positive payoffs in terms of promotion.Ž So look for opportunities to branch out. Volunteer to serve on a cross-functional team,Ž advises Lantz. Meeting regularly with people from other departments is an ideal way to network and learn about othe r aspects of the business.Ž Supercharging your networking Especially when youre a rookie, a mentor can be a great help in extending the upward reach of your internal network There are usually three or four people who set the tone of the companys value system,Ž says Courtney. Its good to have one of them as your mentor; someone who can help prepare you for your next step in the organization.Ž But, Courtney cautions, do tread carefully when choosing a mentor. If youre creating a mentor relationship outside your immediate manager, you hav e to let your manager know,Ž he says. Letting your network work Finally, most of your internal networking efforts should be low-key and informal. If you set up too many meetings too early, people will think, What does this guy want from me? Ž says Behn. And although networking is important, many other priorities will compete for you r attention in the beginning. Says Moran: You dont have to start networking before lunch on your first day.Ž Networking at your new job Featured Jobs LORNA BROWN EMPLOYMENT SALES SPECIALIST LUSADY TAYLOR EMPLOYMENT SALES SPECIALIST Contact Lusady at (850) 522-5173 or email: ltaylor@pcnh.comContact Lorna at (850) 747-5019 or Email: lbrown@pcnh.com REPRESENTATIVES will be at the PORT ST.

Capt. Andrew Lansdell Wing was pivotal to the development of the system of ferries connecting Apalachicola to the east end of the county prior to the construction of the Gorrie Bridge. Though others had tried, Wing was the rst to successfully run a passenger boat between Apalachicola and Carrabelle, He began with the Gazelle, a schooner he co-owned with one of the Yents, probably Samuel. He next bought a small steamer, the X-L, and then a steam tug, the Iola, constructed in 1881 in Carrabelle by C.L. Storrs, to run the route. Wing sold his boats to the Carrabelle Tallahassee and Georgia Railroad when it bought the steamer Crescent City. From 1890 to 1922, with Wing at the helm, she ran a regular route between Apalachicola and Carrabelle carrying passengers to and from the Carrabelle train depot. Originally named the Harry Hill, she was brought south from the St. Johns River. Wing made more than 20,000 trips on the Crescent City. When the Crescent City ceased to operate in 1922 because the route was no longer pro table, Wing resumed his own ferry service, calling it Captain Wings Boat Line. He bought back the Iola, now named the J.P. Williams, running her rst trip on New Years Day 1923. In April, the J.P. Williams was rebuilt with a new engine that burned crude oil, renamed the Jessie May after Wings daughter and launched by Wing in partnership with Capt. James Storrs. The Jessie May made daily trips from Apalachicola to the Carrabelle depot and also made excursions to St. George Island. William Lee Popham, the famous Oyster King, and rst developer of St. George Island set up the next documented ferry service. Popham ran a hotel and restaurant on the island and sold real estate, along with managing an oyster processing business. He built a boardwalk across the island, from the bay to the gulf, for prospective buyers to view the land. In 1906, Popham leased the Sadie J for $20 a month from African American entrepreneur Spartan Jenkins. She was an enclosed excursion boat and the rst motorized vessel on the bay. In modern comfort, Pophams clients were ferried to the oyster bars and the island. In July 1919, Pophams organization, the St. George Co-Operative Colony Unincorporated, purchased the May ower to haul freight and passengers from the mainland to the island. She was soon replaced by the Edna. They continued to ferry passengers and freight to Pophams development until Pophams fortunes oundered in a sea of litigation, accusations and tax liens in the early 1920s. Popham owned one of the rst automobiles in Apalachicola, a red Willys-Knight widely considered to be the most elegant car in the county. By 1926, cars had become common in the boom town and in the country at large. During the early 1920s, when automobiles became accessible to the American middle class, ads for cars, service, fuel and accessories grew more and more common in the Apalachicola Times until, in 1928, the town boasted at least three car dealerships. A demonstration of the Whippet, an American car built in European style, rated front page coverage. Newly mobile tourists were ocking south. A plan was underway to build a network of highways opening Florida to tourism and the last link in the chain of westward roads was a bridge across the Apalachicola River between Apalachicola and Eastpoint. No reliable way of crossing the river existed and a detour of about 100 miles was necessary to make the crossing by land. Individuals, but not cars, could nd passage across on vessels bearing freight. During the early 1920s, newspaper articles mention a boat called the Wave, in particular, as a means of passage from shore to shore, although it is unclear where she docked on the east side or if there were regularly scheduled trips. But thats another story. Next week, the Short Cut and the Save Time come to Eastpoint. FERRIES from page A1 FROM THE WING FAMILY COLLECTION Andrew Lansdell and wife, Nancy Elizabeth Wing.

The trips are free to By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@starfl.com Despite a downturn in June, likely due to the effect of Tropical Storm Debby, the countys bed tax revenues for the rst threequarters of the scal year are running well ahead of the previous year. Based on data shared this week by the Tourist Development Council, collections for the 2 percent bed tax, which is charged on all overnight accommodations, is running at $619,109 so far for the 2011-12 scal year, which ends Sept. 30. This is 14.9 percent more, or about $80,000 more, than was collected by this time in 2010-11, when year-to-date totals through June were $536,976. Judging from what we know about rentals for July and August, we will nish off a pretty good season, said Curt Blair, administrator of the TDC. Based on some advanced reservation reports, October and November look like they could top our records. Thanks to BP and our marketing people, we have certainly rebounded from 2010. May was a particularly robust month for the county, as bed tax revenues came in at $140,203, nearly $50,000 more than the $90,634 collected in May 2011, or a jump of nearly 55 percent. But June 2012, compounded by the effect of June 23 to 27 Tropical Storm Debby, showed a sharp decline from the year before. Bed tax revenues for the entire month tallied $143,805, a drop-off of about 16.4 percent, or little more than $28,000 below, the record-high June 2011 numbers of $172,029. By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@starfl.com Before there were bridges in Franklin County, ferry boats made trade, recreation and social activities of all kinds possible. It was not until the mid-20th century that bridges were built in the county, uniquely divided by several large rivers and bays that separate the barrier islands from the mainland. Special to the TimesThe race for county commissioner for District 5 will be decided at the polls Nov. 6. A portion of voters in precinct 1 in Eastpoint, and precinct 5 in Carrabelle, will decide between Hank Garrett, who is running without party af liation, and Democrat William Massey, to represent them on the county commission. Massey, 53, 1002 Avenue D NW, Carrabelle, defeated incumbent Bevin Putnal in the Aug. 14 primary to advance. Hank Garrett, 48, 599 C.C. Land Road, Eastpoint, is running without party af liation, and so went directly to the general election ballot. Voters have until Tuesday, Oct. 9 to register to vote in the general election. Early voting begins Saturday, Oct. 27 and runs through Saturday, Nov. 3, at two locations, the Supervisor of Elections Office, 47 Ave F, Apalachicola, and the courthouse annex, 1647 U.S. 98 E, Carrabelle. Early voting hours are Saturdays and Sundays, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and weekdays from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Early voters need to bring valid photo identification, and a signature identification. Those without identification may vote a provisional ballot. The following are statements issued by the each of the candidates.By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@starfl.com The use of personal otation devices, presence of mind and a knowledgeable and alert network of guardians all helped seven distressed boaters to survive boating accidents in September. On Saturday, Sept. 8, Of cer Percy Cook of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) responded to a vessel in distress at East Pass. Robert Bob Hoetzle of Tallahassee phoned 911 to report that his 16 foot open boat was taking on water and sinking fast. Winds were out of the southwest at 20 knots with seas of four to six feet. As Cook launched his vessel alone, Hoelzle phoned 911 again and said his boat had capsized, and he was now adrift in the water wearing a blue personal otation device. Cook arrived on scene offshore and began a search grid. Cook located the Hoetzle quickly and pulled him from the rough seas to the safety of the patrol vessel. Search and rescue was executed without air support in extremely rough sea conditions. Hoelzle was participating alone in a speckled trout shing tournament out of Lanark Village at the time of the accident. When his boat began to take on water, he tried unsuccessfully to drain it, then his motor quit. He had a cell phone with him in a plastic bag and called 911. When the boat capsized he was able to crawl onto the hull and called for help a second time but the boat rolled in the high seas and his phone was lost. xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxThursday, September 20, 2012 50 WWW.APALACHTIMES.COM VOL. 127 ISSUE 21Phone: 850-653-8868 Web: apalachtimes.com E-mail: dadlerstein@star .com Fax: 850-653-8036 Circulation: 800-345-8688Opinion . . . . . .

By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com An attempted arson occurred in Eastpoint after the county commission ordered an area in Eastpoint known as Margaritaville to be cleared. At the Sept. 4 county commission meeting, Chairwoman Pinki Jackel asked commissioners to order that land located at Paton Drive and US 98 be cleared. The property is privately owned by Sandra Fields of Michigan. There is an ongoing congregation of people on Sandra Fields property at Patton Drive, Jackel said. Jackel said she had written to Fields. Jackel said the sheriffs department is not controlling the problem and that lewd behavior and public drunkenness were commonplace in the area. She said vagrants frequenting the property were fussing and ghting. Commissioner Bevin Putnal said the men were homeless. Jackel said, Even if theyre homeless the law has to be enforced and I would ask that they do that. Commissioner Cheryl Sanders suggested a letter be sent to the sheriff. The commission voted to write the sheriff, with Noah Lockley opposed. I would have to see it, he said. After the meeting, Alan Pierce, director of administrative services, received a letter from absentee owner Fields, authorizing him to post no-trespassing signs and clear her land. She was delighted with the offer, Pierce said. On Thursday morning county workers and sheriffs deputies set to work clearing the area at around 9 a.m. Pierce was on the scene to make sure that adjacent land belonging to Noah Goodson was not cleared in keeping with Goodsons wishes. The job was nished at about noon. On Thursday evening at about 10:45 p.m., Sgt. Wayne Nash was summoned to the Eastpoint Pavilion adjacent to Fields land to investigate possible arson. Sheriffs Department Investigator Brett Johnson said Nash discovered some charring on a picnic table and a pool of gasoline but the re was out. Nash summoned re ghters to contain the accelerant. On Friday, Johnson, Sheriffs Department Investigator Duane Cook and Brock Dietz of the State Fire Marshalls Of ce met at the pavilion around noon. Johnson said they found minor charring to a table and a stick with one end burned. On questioning possible witnesses, investigators theorized that the stick had been used to ignite gasoline poured on the table. One witness told investigators the resulting explosion blew the attempted arsonist from the pavilion and the re extinguished itself. Johnson said a possible suspect has been identi ed by several informants and a warrant has been issued.The investigation is ongoing. During the cleanup on Thursday, sheriffs deputies recognized Mike Holland 52 of Apalachicola who had an outstanding warrant and he was taken into custody. Pierce said he is exploring the possibility of leasing the newly cleared land from Fields.

LocalThe Times | A3Thursday, September 20, 2012June shows to be down a little bit, but the June numbers may be off because of Tropical Storm Debbie, said Blair. Some of the lodging companies have a delay in their reporting so July should be proportionately higher. July is traditionally one of the countys strongest months for bed tax revenues, which in 2011 posted revenues of nearly $148,000. A review of bed tax revenues for the 2011-12 scal year shows that every month other than June was higher than the year before, paced by February, which ran nearly 49 percent better than in 2010-11. In February 2012, revenues ran slightly more than $52,000, our about $17,000 more than the $35,000 posted in February 2011. January 2012 numbers ran about 21 percent better than the year before, about $5,000 better than in 2011, while October and November 2011 tallies were each about 30 percent better than the year before. At the outset of this summers county budget deliberations, Fran Edwards, an administrative staffer for the TDC, reported that in the 2010-11 scal year, $803,141 was collected through Sept. 30, 2011, an increase over the previous year by nearly $49,000. She said this money represents an economic impact generated to the county of over $40 million dollars from overnight rentals alone, not including additional tourist dollars owing in from sales to restaurants, gas stations, souvenir shops, and other tourist-related activities including shing charters and purchases of seafood-related venues. Edwards praised the county commissioners for your very wise decision to use the existing TDC contractors to promote Franklin County with the BP funds. Beginning with Helen Spohrers managerial and marketing expertise, she led the project with the assistance of the creative genius of 2kwebgroup, Bay Media, and Forgotten Coast TV, who developed promotional plans and accomplished expanded marketing that will bene t this county for tourism for years to come. Edwards said TV coverage was expanded from the eastern seaboard, westward as far as Texas, and north to the Canadian border, and statistics were captured through activities on the internet promotions. Social media was used to the max! Facebook, twitter, and Bay Medias creative email newsletters were used to continually e-blast information across the internet, she said. Our email database list has quadrupled in the past two years. She said local video was lmed for shing and culinary programs that will be shown on TV for years to come, and public TV lmed numerous footage of artists and artistic programs relating to Franklin County as an art destination. In mid-July, visit Florida set up a free satellite media program broadcasting live from St. George Island that reached over 30 cable and network stations at no cost to the TDC. Edwards said Josh Hodson, park manager of the Dr. Julian Bruce St. George Island State Park, recently invited all Florida state park managers to visit and network Franklin County to promote what natural, historical and cultural resources this county provides, and more than 200 managers responded.

Early on the morning of Oct. 9, 2010, re ghters summoned to Parker Street in Lanark Village found units 5-4 through 5-8 in ames. The apartments were a total loss because ames spread rapidly through a common attic. Unit 5-3 was saved from destruction because the owner had installed a rewall. The blaze might have been caused by faulty wiring. As of now, the weed-choked, charred shells of four of the ve units still are standing, and neighbors say they pose a health and safety hazard. Ed Hanson lived in unit 5-5, the only apartment that has been razed. He said the unit was a bank-owned foreclosure at the time of the re, and insurance paid to have it taken down. He since has moved across the courtyard from his old home. He said the burned out apartments are a dangerous eyesore. Nobody seems to have any authority, he said. Asbestos inspectors visited and put up tape that has fallen down. There are kids playing in the burned out shell. Ed Pattillo who takes pride in his unit, 5-3, and has invested signi cant effort and money in upgrading it, said he is angry. Last November, (Commissioner) Cheryl (Sanders) told the Lanark Village Association the units would be removed in no more than 45 days, Pattillo said. In a recent interview, County Attorney Michael Shuler said he is involved in slow but meaningful dialogue with the owners of the four remaining units. He said all four units are to be demolished, but when the owners tried to apply for a county demolition permit, they were told they needed an asbestos inspection to obtain the permit. He said as of the beginning of September, two of the units have been inspected, and two are scheduled for inspection. I will prosecute if they do not comply, but I am more interested in working with the owners, Shuler said. Pattillo said he doesnt want to wait any longer. Since the buildings burned, he said, We have got roaches and rats everything that we didnt have before those buildings were derelict He said he called the Health Department shortly after the re and was told that because it was burned out, they had no authority. Nobody claims it because its a hot potato, Pattillo said, They know who the owners are, and the tax department knew where to nd them. Pattillo wants the county to take more direct action to hurry repairs of the burned out units on Parker Street and suggested they put a lien on one owners property. He said one of the owners has at least two other rental units in the Village so its not like the county doesnt have anything levy against to pay for the demolition. Pattillo said Alan Pierce sent one of his neighbors a letter saying the county was depending on the good will of the owners to get the damage repaired Pattillo said he believes there is a problem with derelict buildings in general on the east end of the county. We spent thousands of dollars to attract tourists, he said, and the rst thing they see on U.S. 98 is Putnal Station. Putnal Station is an abandoned garage dating back to Camp Gordon Johnston located near Hinton Street on U.S. 98.Progress on Lanark demolition slow FILE PHOTOMost of the units in this apartment complex were destroyed in an October 2010 re.

The spoken word is lost; the printed word remains. Circulation:1-800-345-8688 There is a famous song from the late Stevie Ray Vaughn called The Sky is Crying. That is how it feels behind this keyboard, on this dreary, rainy Tuesday morning after the passing of Everett Gant. Gant, 32 and father of a young daughter, died in Bay Medical Center on Monday night, having never regained consciousness after being shot in the head six weeks, to the very day, before. He passed with his family remaining vigilant after a long, brutal ordeal and passed away without really knowing how many lives he touched. How deeply sad. For during a career that has only sporadically surprised, one of the truly stunning occurrences in my lifetime in newspapers has been the outpouring from people, on social media, the internet, letters, email, with signs on lawns or in front of shopping centers, reaching out and urging prayers and thoughts for Everett and his family. The number of people he encountered and touched on this earth in such a short amount of time is truly amazing and a testament to the man, warts and all. But today the sky cries. Cries at the ignorance behind the circumstances that left Gant lying in a pool of his own blood on an apartment threshold. Tears come from the hatred behind the words and actions described in the arresting afdavit, a document lled with vile words driven by thoughts and ideas that most of us, thankfully, nd abhorrent. The sky cries because a community has been scarred, has been lessened by the act of one man and how that single act, driven by a blind hatred all too prevalent in the world today, has left another dead, a life ended, a daughter without her father, a family without a brother, son, nephew, grandson, uncle. It cries because in the end, all the thoughts and prayers that have been sent the direction of Everett Gant and family proved no match for mortality, a battle we seem to be waging far too much as a community recently as young people are taken far too early. But if there is a glimmer, some light to be found in this senseless tragedy that took on more tragic proportions on Monday night, it is in a communitys response. The candlelight vigil held in the days following the shooting that showed a community coming together to resist, with a kind of human Kevlar vest, the bullets of hatred that still ring through the air. A vigil of common folks, of all ages and colors, coming together to say that the thoughts and ideas espoused by one white man before and after he gunned down a young black man do not reect community values, not this community, not at this time in history. There was light from the Lions Club of Port St. Joe, which immediately established and seeded a fund for the Gant family at Centennial Bank to help defray medical costs, which after six weeks are surely astronomical. There is also light to be found in the reections of a mother one month after her son was shot. Gloria Gant, a hugely popular and superb teacher at Port St. Joe High School, stopped by this ofce between trips to and from home and the hospital one day in order to get something out. She wanted, needed, to say something to the community that had tried to wrap their hands and hearts around her family and her son. People might read what happened here and think this is the most terrible place in the whole world, Gloria said that day. But I am here to tell you that is not true. This is a wonderful community, with warm, generous people who have been so kind and loving to us. This (incident) is not what this community is about. We just thank all the people who have reached out and supported us. That is Gloria and that was, in large measure, Everett. Strong of spine, huge of heart, gentle of spirit, a son reecting the values he was raised with, carrying them with him through life, no matter the ups and downs tossed in front of his path, self-inicted or not. And comfort can also be wrung from the outreach of people of this community and their refusal to accept the terms under which Everett left this world. Here is but a sampling in the hours after his death was announced, left on The Star Facebook page. And this is just a sampling: Cee White this is so sad to hear; Barrett Lowry Praying for the Gant family Jake Richards Prayers with the Gant family. Im so glad that the ignorance of (the shooters) actions and in some of the comments do not reect how our community as a whole responded. Nor does it reect on how the impact that Everetts life had on others. Sherrin Hill Praying for the Gant family. What a terrible loss. Woodyard Princess Adams My heart is heavy right now. Debbie Boatright My thoughts and prayers go out to the Gant family and to all his friends and he had a lot. Just breaks my heart that is happened to such a special person that everybody loved. Heavy heart right now. Veronica Barrington This is so sad to hear This is the time that Port St. Joe should still stand strong for this family in spite of this senseless and evil act Kelly Johnson Parrish Yes, how we all shake our heads how any human being could be so lled with hate. The sky is crying this Tuesday morning.Thursday, September 20, 2012 TiIM CrROFtTStar news editorMaking sense of senselessMother didnt want us to play high school football. She was afraid wed get hurt. Leon was a pretty good player and the coach came out to the house one afternoon to recruit the two younger Colbert boys. To the embarrassment of everyone present Mom politely but rmly expressed her opinion of the dangers of the game. She let him know right quick that she didnt cotton to the idea of us getting hurt playing football. I dont reckon she ever glanced out the back window when David Mark and me were sword ghting with those sharpened cane poles. We were practicing for roles in Pirates of the Caribbean that we never got. Danged if he wouldnt forget that we were pretending! Hed whap me upside the head and then jab that pointed end in my belly. Id get mad and use my stick like a baseball bat! Wed sit down for supper wiping blood off our stomachs, ears, lips and noses. She apparently wasnt there when we crawled into the goat corral out at the Tri-County Stockyards. Mr. William McCaleb told us we could have any goat we could catch. I was probably nine or ten, David was twenty months younger. I got kicked in the chest just as I entered the ring; then run over from behind. One of them bit me on the leg. I got knocked down half a dozen times by the same big, ornery beast. The dust, sweat, hay and nays were ying. Listen here, we learned right quick that a covey of penned up Billy goats dont want to be caught! David dove and grabbed one by the hind leg. I jumped on his head. We proudly drug him over to the gate. Of course, wed ruined two shirts, David Mark had a black eye, I had hoof marks front and back We could have sure used some shoulder pads. Mother must have been stirring those brown beans when we dropped that knife off our elbow aimed at the nearest foot huddled up in pretty tight circle. I tried to get close but if I hit someone it was an accident. Not so with Leon! Hed ing that knife right at your big toe. The winner was the one that could get the knife stuck in the ground closest to a foot without breaking any skin. You were disqualied if the knife failed to stick upright or you hit esh. We called it MumbleyPeg. Although sitting here today I could easily think of some more tting names. Boy howdy, a pair of those Wilson high top football cleats would have come in mighty handy. Mom never went down to the big ditch and watched us swing across on grapevines. Sometimes youd have to get a running start and leap out off one edge to catch the vine to swing it over to the side. If you missed, the fall was about fteen feet. It wouldnt kill you but if you landed wrong it would stove you up a mite. If your hold slipped and you slid down the vine a little you would catch the other bank broadside. It would take all day to get your breath back. Ricky Gene didnt let go once when nearing the far bank. He swung back to the middle and was left dangling in mid air. We couldnt reach him and he couldnt swing to the side. Mom yelled for us to come to supper. I dont know to this day how he got down. The crab apples sometimes we calledem horse applesmight have been the worst. Those things were hard as brick bats and just right for throwing. This was an easy game. There were no rules. No battle lines. And no teams. You just grabbed as many as you could carry and hid behind a tree, the side of the barn or laid low in a ditch. The rst guy that came by, you let y with both barrels. Wed chunk and duck till somebody got knocked unconscious. A busted tooth or whelped up arm wasnt nothing. A football helmet would have been a God send to the crabapple game! Mom must have missed us playing pick-up football out in the front yard. We had no pads. Our uniforms were jeans and T-shirts. We banged into each other as hard as we could; we pushed, shoved, slugged, tackled, fought and kicked. We shed more than a little blood, nursed bowling ball size bruises and survived the near bout obligatory busted nger or broken arm from time to time. We played Stalag 17 in the side yard after dark. It wasnt too dangerous, except for the guy who climbed upon the roof with the ashlight. Or, if you got excited when you were running to avoid the spotlight and you lost track of where the clothes line poles or the guide wires were. Wed pull over a mid sized tree, put David in the top branches and see how far he could y when we let go. Wed roller skate holding on to the back of the milk truck. We had no seat belts in those days. You could run around inside those big Buicks! We loved to hang on the running board and try to catch low hanging limbs. Ten of us would pile in the back of a pick-up and ride to town. Part of the fun was hanging some one off the back until they cried uncle. Wed grab a shotgun apiece, climb on the front fenders of Cliffords old Ford and go pre dawn rabbit hunting. The miracle wasnt that we would actually hit a racing hare on occasion, the real trick was to avoid shooting the truck or each other! I signed up for the high school football team just as soon as I was eligible. I gured my body needed the rest. Respectfully, Kes HUnkerNKER DOWnNKesley ColbertMumbley-Peg sounds pretty tamePeople in general are strange. We are all different, thus we all have different ideas of what normal is. Strange is simply differing from the normal. Im trying to make a point and at the same time help you to understand why we are all strange to each other (for the most part). Some of the strange things people do or habits they have are obvious; some are not. Walt Disney, the creator of the most famous mouse the world has ever known, was actually afraid of mice. Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, was afraid of the dark. These are two examples of strange, which are also interesting. There are more. Baseball great, Babe Ruth, wore a cabbage leaf under his hat and changed it every two innings. The Babe thought it kept him cool. Albert Einstein could not be verbally understood until after the age of nine and Mark Twain never nished elementary school. There are interesting facts and people all around us; we just have to pay attention. In order to watch people in the right spirit, you must rst admit that you are just as strange to them as they are to you. This is said to ones self to justify the thoughts you are thinking. What am I trying to say? I am trying to say that in addition to nding humor in others, Im not poking fun at them as much as I am appreciating them. The other morning at work, I rushed in and told a couple of co-workers, The Panther has on blue jeans. They did not believe me and rushed to the windows to take a look. They gasped. One of my co-workers said, Go outside and look up; the heavens are about to part. One fellow left the room to go outside and look up at the sky. For years, we have studied the fellow at work we have code-named, The Panther. I cant say that we have code-names for everyone at work, but I can say the Panther is worthy of one. Ive never heard the Panther speak, though I have spoken to him on many occasions. Passing in the hall, I will say, Good Morning or Hello, how are you? He never says a word. Honestly, I dont nd him not speaking that strange. He works on the rst oor, which means to me that he probably has a PhD in a really specic eld that requires him to think all of the time and only speak on rare occasions. I understand. Over the years, my co-workers and I have studied each other and paid particular attention to the Panther. It makes work more fun and keeps our analytical skills sharp. Why do we call him The Panther? Im really not sure. I think it had something to do with Chevrolet. Does that not make sense to you? You see back in the 1960s, Chevrolet was hot on the trail, competing with Ford. Chevrolet had to have a competitor for the Ford Mustang. It was a top secret car/project, that Chevrolet codenamed Panther. As many of you know, the Chevrolet Panther actually was unveiled as the Camaro in 1966. Its a cool story; our Panther is interesting; its an appropriate name for such an interesting person. As noted, I do not nd the Panthers lack of communication that big of a deal. We do research and work on a lot of interesting things. Hes probably just thinking. However, there are few things that I nd interesting about the Panther. The Panther has to park in the same parking spot every day. There are lots of folks who are like this, but I honestly dont think the Panther would get out of his car if he didnt get to park in his chosen spot. His unmarked, but chosen parking spot is in the middle of a large parking lot. Its not on the end, its in the middle. We all understand this and dont park there. Whether the parking lot is full or completely empty, the Panther takes the same route to the door. It involves many 90 degree turns and never crossing a white line. The Panther will never walk straight to his car. Babe Ruth had the thing with the cabbage in his hat; the Panther wont cross a white line. Its strange, but I still kind of understand.

Keith, 24, Carrabelle, violation of probation and failure to appear (FCSO)By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Federal Communications Commission has levied a hefty ne against St. George Cable, a company that has provided cable service to St. George Island for about 20 years, for allegedly violating rules governing signal leakage and the Emergency Alert System (EAS), and for failing to adhere to an order to cease operations. According to an FCC notice released Sept. 6, the company, incorporated in 1993 and now owned by Charles Sumner, has been ordered to pay $236,500. This amount consists of $150,000 for operating its system with excessive cable signal leakage; $37,500 for failing to cease operations when ordered and operating without authority; $37,500 for failing to install and maintain operational EAS equipment; $6,000 for failing to le the required registration form; and $5,500 for failing to respond to an FCC order to submit a certi cation of compliance. The notice said that on Sept. 7, 2011, agents from the Tampa of ce of the FCCs Enforcement Bureau inspected the St. George Island cable system, and observed 33 distinct signals on aeronautical frequencies emanating from the system, otherwise known as leaks. These leaks, the notice said, affected both radio navigation and communications frequencies, including international distress and calling frequencies that receive heightened protection. These frequencies are critical for search and rescue operations, including use by emergency locator transmitters on planes and emergency position indicating radio beacons on boats, it reads. Harmful interference includes any interference that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation service or of other safety services. Two days after the agents inspection, the district director in Tampa of ce issued an order to the cable company that ordered it to cease all cable operations until the excessive signal leakage was eliminated. The order said the cable provider could request authority to conduct short tests to evaluate the effectiveness of remedial measures or to calculate the CLI (cumulative leakage index) but could not resume normal operation on these frequencies without written approval from the Tampa of ce. Later inspections, on Oct. 12, 2011, and again on March 19, 2012, found the cable system continuing in operation, and observed several other leaks above the maximum threshold. The EAS ne stems from a violation of rules that require every analog and digital cable system to participate in the nationwide EAS network, which enables the president and state and local governments to provide immediate communications and information to the general public. These rules require all EAS participants to ensure that EAS encoders, EAS decoders, and attention signal generating and receiving equipment are installed so that the monitoring and transmitting functions are available during the times the systems are in operation. The FCC notice indicates that on Aug. 10, 2011, it received a complaint from a consumer alleging that St. George did not have EAS equipment installed. After agents inspected the systems EAS equipment and logs, and found it had not yet installed its purchased EAS equipment, the agents warned St. George about its continued non-compliance with the EAS requirements, reads the notice. The agents also warned the company that it had yet to submit a registration statement with the FCC. We conclude St. Georges actions were egregious given the potential public safety hazard, its blatant disregard for (FCC) authority, and a demonstrated pattern of failing to maintain its cable system, reads the notice. Of cials at St. George Cable have not responded to several requests for comment.

Johnson said both Currenton and Chestnut have received special training related to their VAB posts. Parrish and Sanders will continue on the board because the other commissioners declined to serve. Commissioner Bevin Putnal pointed out that, because he was not re-elected, he is not eligible to serve, and Commissioner Pinki Jackel said she could not serve while involved in her race for reelection. Two members and an alternate of the VAB are appointed by the school board.

He said the move was designed to modernize the facility and will allow customers to pay tipping fees using Discover Card, MasterCard or Visa.County explores repairing island shing pierOn Sept. 4, County Attorney Michael Shuler gave commissioners an update on efforts to repair the St. George Island Fishing Pier, which was damaged by Orion Marine Groups barge during Tropical Storm Debby. The barge destroyed two sections of the shing pier and left the majority of the structure inaccessible. Shuler said that, in a letter received July 6, Orion said they were sending an appraiser to examine the damage but he had not been contacted further about the appraisal. He said that since Orion is in the business of making marine repairs, they may wish to save money by handling the project in-house. Shuler said the repairs to the shing pier are within the scope of the uses allowed by the bridge fund, a fund set up at the time of the demolition of the old bridge for maintenance of the shing piers. He said the repairs qualify as maintenance and that the county has the authority to decide what repairs are necessary. He suggested the commission notify the Department of Transportation that the county intends to use the fund and adopt a motion authorizing the repairs. He advised commissioners to have Preble-Rish recommend how to repair the pier and the materials to be used. Chairperson Pinki Jackel asked Shuler to write Orion setting a speci c time limit for their response and bring the issue back to the board at a later meeting. She said that once Preble-Rish has nished their appraisal, the board will inform all responsible parties, including Progress Energy, of the results including the cost of repairs. I hate to use the maintenance fund because its also a demolition fund for when the bridge needs to be removed. With them having the capability, I dont see why they (Orion) dont just step up, Commissioner Smokey Parrish said. News BRIEFS

NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARINGThe City of Apalachicola has tentatively adopted a budget for FY 2012-2013 A public hearing to make a FINAL DECISION on the budget AND TAXES will be held on Monday, September 24, 2012 6:00 PM At Apalachicola Community Center, #1 Bay Avenue, Apalachicola, Florida BOATING from page A1FWC Public Information Coordinator Stan Kirkland said if Hoetzle had been swept out through East Pass and there was any time lapse, it would have greatly diminished the odds of him being located. At the time of this printing, Hoetzles boat had not been located. In a Sept. 10 email, FWC Lt. Charlie Woods congratulated Cook on his efcient, quick response to the emergency. In an unrelated incident, the Coast Guard rescued six people from the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 25 miles from Carrabelle on Saturday, Sept.15. At 4:30 a.m., watch standers at Coast Guard Sector Mobile, Ala., received a call from 43-foot vessel Dirty Pool reporting that she was taking on water. The vessel had launched from Carrabelle at 7:30 p.m., Friday, with six people aboard for a dive trip. Shortly after the initial notication, Sector Mobile received two automatic notications from Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB) in the vicinity of the Dirty Pools reported location. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and crew and located the six individuals in the water 25 miles offshore. Lt. John Raulston and Lt Christian Gintyrapp were the pilots on the Jayhawk. In a telephone interview, Raulston said they had some difculty in locating the stranded men in spite of the fact that the six had followed good safety procedures and had the correct equipment. Raulston and Gintyrapp used GPS coordinates broadcast by the EPIRBs to travel to the scene of the accident but could locate no debris eld or sign of the shermen. They then went to a search area developed by Section Mobile and began searching in a grid. Once again, they found nothing. While Section Mobile worked to develop another area, Raulston and Gintyrapp returned to the original coordinates where they spotted the boaters in a circle around a cooler. The group used marine signal ares to alert the Coast Guard crew to their location. All six people were wearing life jackets. Raulston said he initially thought they were in a raft because their otation devices formed an orange circle. A rescue swimmer was dispatched and he determined that, except for one man suffering from seasickness and dehydration, the men were unharmed. Raulston said he believed they had grabbed the wrong cooler when leaving the boat. The one they had brought with them contained bait and so there was nothing to eat or drink and they had to be very careful not to let any of the bait go into the water lest it attract sharks. Chief Petty Ofcer Brenda Doris, a search and rescue coordinator at Sector Mobile said, The rescued crew members demonstrated exceptional preparedness, greatly expediting our recovery efforts. This serves as a reminder to all mariners that preparedness and proper safety gear are critical. The men told Raulston one of them woke up at about 5 a.m. to the sound of splashing water. He discovered the boat was going down and woke his friends. They barely had time to grab the cooler, otation devices and two emergency kits containing EPIRBs before the Dirty Pool sank completely. The air crew transported the six men to emergency medical service personnel waiting at the Apalachicola Regional Airport. All six people were able to walk off the aircraft unassisted. The Coast Guard recommends that mariners wear a properly tting Coast Guard-approved life jacket at all times while underway. According to the Coast Guards Recreational Boating Statistics 2011 report of the 533 people across the nation who drowned in recreational boating accidents in 2011, 84 percent were not wearing a life jacket. Kirkland stressed the importance of communications devices when on the water. He said rescuers have to calculate the location of distressed boaters based on the tide and that can be difcult. He recommends recreational boaters carry two communications devices in addition to a cell phone. VHF radio does not function if the battery becomes wet. An additional device like the EPIRBS mentioned above or pocket locator beacon can provide a location to rescuers during an emergency. Both are water resistant and communicate via satellite. The signal from an activated PLB or EPIRB is routed directly to the Coast Guard so they can contact the appropriate state agency or respond directly to the call for help within minutes of the distress signal. EPIRBs and PLBs are now available on a daily rental basis at some marinas. The SPOT satellite messenger is another option. This device constantly updates GPS coordinates and allows the user to transmit them to friends, family or rescuers. Kirkland said locating distressed individuals in the water in a timely fashion Becomes all the more important in winter, as the water temperature drops. Hypothermia will kill you in a short period of time. Raulston said, I would say follow their example to other boaters. They did a very good job in terms of safety procedures.

This has become a yearly tradition and one both the girls and our animals enjoy very much. The girls are taken on a tour of the facility, given the chance to play with puppies, cuddle kittens and pat the dogs. We talk about the roll of the Humane Society, how important it is to spay and neuter their pets and what a great place it is for them to volunteer. These girls should be proud of the people they are becoming, the work they are doing and the love for animals they are cultivating. Good work, Girl Scouts!Happy birthday, Preshia CrumThere was food, fun, friends and family galore on Saturday when Preshia Crum celebrated a century of life spent in Eastpoint.

LANARK NEWSJim WelshExpect an eventful SaturdayLawrence J. Kienzle, 86, of St. George Island, died Tuesday, Sept. 11, at home. He was born Aug. 1, 1926, in Greeneld, Wis., to Joseph and Frieda Kienzle and lived in Waukesha, Wis., and Cocoa before moving to the island. He attended West Milwaukee High School and worked as a machinist, engineer and supervisor at Wisconsin Motors and ACDelco in Milwaukee. In the 1970s, he and his family moved to Cocoa, where he worked at McDonnell Douglas, retiring in 1990 as a methods engineer. While living in Cocoa, he melded his longtime dream of ying with his skill in engineering, earning a private pilots license, then building and ying a light, composite, homebuilt aircraft called a Quickie. He also remained an avid gardener throughout his life. He moved to St. George Island in 1993. He is survived by his long-time companion Peggy Ross of St. George Island; his children, Craig Kienzle of New York City, Karren Wendt of East Troy, Wis., Patti Bielling of San Antonio, Texas, Paul Kienzle of Cocoa and their mother, Hazel Kienzle of Cocoa; his sisters Eleanor Krejci of Muskego, Wis., and Dorothy Mueller of Prairie du Sac, Wis.; and two granddaughters, Amanda and Kristin Bielling of San Antonio. His family will hold a memorial service on St. George Island in October. Lawrence KKienzle LAWRENCE KIENZlLEJames Jimmy Darnell Smith died Wednesday, Sept. 12, in Eastpoint. Jimmy was born March. 4, 1950, in Omaha, Neb. He lived most of his life on St. George Island, where he will be remembered for his artistic and musical talents.

Box 610, Crawfordville, FL 32326.Jimmy SSmith jJIMMY SMITH ObituariesBy DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com The Franklin County Health Department is about to debut a new expansion into dentistry to serve the public health needs of students and adults. Marsha Lindeman, the health department director, said two dentistry sites will open in the weeks ahead, one at Franklin County High School and the other at the Carrabelle health department site. To fund the program, Kim Barnhill, Lindemans predecessor as health department director, was able to secure $90,000 in state grant funding to renovate space at both locations, and to purchase equipment and supplies. The school district already provides the department of health clinic space at the Eastpoint campus. The county commission agreed to fund the countys required $22,500 match for the Florida Department of Health grant. In addition, Lindeman said, the program has received a $25,000 grant from the states dental program, to be used specically to provide dental sealants to students in the second and seventh grades. Lindeman said the county health department has hired Thomasville, Ga., dentist Renee Parrish to oversee the new program. In Carrabelle, Parrish will provide basic dentistry, including primary and restorative exams, cleanings, llings, extractions and dentures. She will not perform endodontic procedures, such as root canals, and periodontal treatments, such as gum surgery. Lindeman stressed that the health department did not intend to compete with dentists in the private sector and would not be accepting private dental insurance. The department is busy this week putting the nishing touches on renovations that include the addition of chairs and equipment that include a new panorex digital dental x-ray that displays both the upper and lower jaws and teeth, in the same lm. This is a work in progress, said Lindeman. At the Franklin County School, Parrishs staff will provide dental exams, cleanings and sealants, with those in need of more extensive dental work referred to the Carrabelle site Well do all the kids; most will be eligible for Medicaid, and well bill Medicaid. Lindeman said. The scope of services are focused on people who are eligible. She said the new dentist will do more detailed exams on the kids, mostly out of the Carrabelle site, while a dental hygienist at the school will be applying the sealants. We want to get the rst and second molars, so it keeps them from decaying, said Lindeman. We have a captive audience there in the school. She said Parrish is now selecting personnel to ll the dental hygienist, dental assistant and dental clerk positions. Were also going to hire an eligibility-type clerk, who helps them get enrolled in Medicaid if theyre eligible, said the health department director. The department is now hoping to secure two additional grants for the program, the larger of them from the Blue Foundation for a Healthy Florida, the philanthropic afliate of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. If granted, this could entail receiving $100,000 a year for three years, which could be used for salary and benets. Weve had preliminary site visits from the Blue Foundation, and they are very supportive of this grant application, said Lindeman. We should hear in October. The second grant is for federal dollars channeled through the Agency for Health Care Administration. These funds are earmarked for low income people, and can be used for either new services, or expansion of existing services, to expand access. We should hear results by the end of September, Lindeman said.Health department to introduce dentistry program DA A VI I D AA DLERSTEIN ERSTEIN | The TimesAAbove: A view of the new dental chair at Franklin County High School.

SPONSORED BY Thursday, September 20, 2012 Page 12Trapped fox negative for rabiesFrom Staff ReportsOn Sept. 12, Albert Floyd, supervisor of animal control, said a fox trapped in Apalachicola on Sept. 7 has tested negative for rabies. The animal was trapped near the home of Lisa Hooker, who was bitten by a rabid fox on Sept. 6. A third fox trapped in the same area on Sept. 10 showed no sign of infection and was not aggressive, according to Animal Control director Fonda Davis. He said the third fox was be euthanized after a week in quarantine and will not be tested for rabies. Davis said animal control is continuing to deploy traps in the area and is in contact with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to determine how to dispose of any additional animals collected. He said they may be euthanized or held in quarantine and released. Predatory tiger shrimp have arrived in Franklin County waters. Tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon, occur naturally in the west Paci c Ocean, ranging from the eastern coast of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula as far south as northern Australia. Greenpeace has listed them as endangered because of the destruction of mangrove forests, their native habitat. These shrimp measure up to 13 inches long and weigh almost a pound, with dark and white stripes circling their bodies. The females are larger than the males. There is also a rarely seen color variant of the species with a conspicuous, wide, reddish-orange stripe along its back. There have been many attempts to farm tiger shrimp or giant prawns around the world. During the 1970s they were widely cultivated, but attempts to use them as a food crop were generally unsuccessful. About 2,000 were accidently released from an aquaculture facility in South Carolina in 1988. These shrimp have been spotted sporadically in U.S. coastal waters ever since. During 2011, more than 300 were collected in the Gulf, up from 32 the previous year. Tiger shrimp are natives of tropical waters and temperature is important to their wellbeing. The recent warm winters have probably helped them become established along the Gulf Coast. They reach adulthood rapidly and are tolerant of a wide range of salinity, which means if the water is warm enough, they can thrive in a variety of habitats. They are predatory and will consume almost any smaller organism. Tiger shrimp are edible. The following recipe was taken from www.Food.com.Garlic butter tiger shrimp2 pounds large raw tiger shrimp, in their shells cup butter 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 6 garlic cloves, smashed 2 limes, juice and zest of 1 bunch fresh coriander, chopped warm tortillas Rinse the prawns in a colander, remove their heads and leave them to drain. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic and fry over a low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Cook the prawns in a large frying pan or cast iron flameproof dish that can be taken directly to the table so they retain their heat until they are served. Add the lime rind and juice. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute more. Add the prawns and cook them for 2 to 3 minutes until they turn pink. Remove them from the heat, sprinkle with coriander and serve with the warm tortillas.By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@starfl.com At their Sept. 4 meeting, Extension Director Bill Mahan told commissioners the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is threatening island business and homeowners with heavy nes if lights are not brought into compliance with the federal law. Mahan said on Aug. 23, he met with Kelly Roberts and Robin Trindell of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Lisa Lehnhoff with USFW to conduct a beach survey on St. George Island and discuss the county sea turtle lighting ordinance. Mahan said two of six turtle nests that have hatched this year have become disoriented as a result of noncompliant lights. All three visiting wildlife of cers told Mahan the county ordinance is not strong enough and is not being adequately enforced. One issue that was pointed out is that the countys ordinance only covers homes and businesses built on lots along coastal construction line, Mahan said. The Endangered Species Act covers any light source that causes disorientation of sea turtles. During our walk there were bright lights all over the beach. The state people seemed understanding and want to work with us as best they can, but USFW said if the county doesnt do more, theyre going come in and enforce the Endangered Species Act, which would trump everything, and they said the nes would start at about $5,000. The county was one of the rst counties in the state of Florida to enact the turtle lighting ordinance, Commissioner Cheryl Sanders said. We were very proactive. I would like to see what suggestions the federal government thinks we need to do more than what we got. The retro ts on these lights are very expensive, Chairperson Pinki Jackel said. Every time it looks like theres funding to help homeowners with retro ts of the lighting, it turns out to not be the program that theyre told. Recently we were told that there was some sort of environmental grant or money available to homeowners and people got interested. It was going pay for local electricians and for the hardware and all, and as it turned out, it was not. It was a match. It could probably average $500 to $700 a house. There needs to be some handholding done on that to help folks get that done. Let the federal government show us the money that theyre going to use to retro t all of these things, Sanders said. In an interview after the meeting, Bruce Hall, a spokeswoman for Sea Turtles at Risk, disagreed. Hall has administered grant money for several lighting retro t programs. She said in the past, STAR and USFW have asked people who receive funds to install light blocking window treatments as well and display turtle information in rental houses. Grant recipients also agreed to grant access to representatives of STAR or USFW for inspection purposes and inform one of the organizations if the property was sold. She said under the grant program advertised in the Times last week, there were no such requirements because of the brief window of opportunity for obtaining funds. Mahan said he had discussed the possibility of further outreach about sea turtles with the FWC and USFW representatives. He told commissioners, I guess the ordinance was adopted back in 1998, and it might be out of a lot of peoples minds. I think the rental companies do a great job of letting people know, Jackel said. They provide turtle information in all their renter packages. I know the rental companies have let the owners know. I think the problem is the money for the expense of retro tting. Ive been watching this thing for eight years, Commissioner Noah Lockley. They fuss about them telling that every year, but all they monitor them is while theyre in the ground. Once they hatch and hit the water, they dont put no device on them to follow them or nothing. They dont know how many make it from there. The ones that do make it, they go down to Mexico and the people eat them. You aint spending all that money for lights and stuff. Its hard times. In a telephone interview, Lehnhoff said there is an extensive program of offshore sea turtle monitoring using GPS technology. Both the University of Florida and Eglin Air Force Base participate in offshore turtle migration studies, and though no turtles have been tagged on St. George Island, 15 females that nest on Cape San Blas carry tracking devices. The animals are dubbed with names like Love Bug, Chaka Khan and Pocahontas. Information on the migration patterns of these and other turtles is available on the website for Seaturtle.org. Lehnhoff said, based on current research, about one out 1,000 hatchlings reaches maturity. Id like to see you make contact with the property managers and make sure they are aware of what U.S. Fish and Wildlife is saying because $5,000 ne for improper lighting is very steep not only for the people but for the owners over there, Commissioner Smokey Parrish said. I think what youre talking about going out there and doing some educational stuff is very appropriate to try and avoid that. Make sure theyre aware of the suggestions as far as trying to retro t and make sure theyre aware of the consequences if we dont address that. I believe theyre important like all our other creatures, and I think we need to do everything we can to protect them, within reason, Jackel said. Im very proactive on that.

It was an amazing game and most definitely a crowd pleaser, said coach Hilary Stanton. On both sides of the crowd, people were on their feet all night, cheering on their teams. The cheers were deafening! The Lady Seahawks JV team, under the direction of Joy Carrino, won the first two sets easily, 25-18 and 25-10 in the best two-out-of-three match. They played well and had excellent teamwork, said Stanton. The varsity match, best three-out-of-five, was a closer encounter, and evening the teams district record at 1-1. The teams played four sets, dropping the first one, 19-25. But the teams came together and got their head in the game, said Stanton. They came back and won the second, third, and fourth sets, 25-21, 2517 and 26-24. They were close games, said the rst-year head coach. Both teams fought hard but in the end the Seahawks took the win! I was unbelievably proud of the girls. They were getting in aces and kills and coming together as a team, said Stanton. They pumped each other up the entire time and worked together. They guarded the net and were able to get in some good blocks and kills. The Lady Seahawks want to thank their fans for coming over to Port St. Joe to support them. The community is invited to come out to all games, home and away. We love your cheers and encouragement, said Stanton. The wins at St. Joe end a skid for the Seahawks, who opened district play at home Sept. 13 by falling in three games to league leader Blountstown. On Saturday, the Lady Seahawks varsity squad played in the Panhandle Fall Classic at Mosley. In the opener, the team fell 8-25 and 5-25 to the Mosley Dolphins. They then moved on to a tough outing against Sneads, falling 15-25 in the rst set, and then battling to a 26-28 loss in the second. The Lady Seahawks now stand at third place in the district, behind leader Blountstown and second place Liberty County.

A14 | The Times Thursday, September 20, 2012By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com An Apalachicola nurse has taken part in medical missions to Africa, one of ve Project HOPE volunteers participating in the rst leg of the U.S. Navys Africa Partnership Station 2012 mission in Liberia and Ghana. The volunteers worked alongside naval personnel to deliver health care and education while living aboard the HSV 2 Swift. Subsequent rotations of volunteers will also provide medical care in Benin and Togo and help support the mission in the Republic of the Congo and Cameroon. Fran Bauer, RN, volunteered on her second Project HOPE mission, having previously been on the USNS Mercy in 2010. Bauer is a hospice nurse as well as medicalsurgical nurse working closely with Dr. James Stockwell with his gastroenterology practice at Weems. She worked as a medical surgical and community health nurse in Liberia and Ghana. Cherri Dobson, RN, a neo-natal intensive care unit and critical care transport nurse from Oakland, California, took part on her seventh mission for Project HOPE, working as a pediatric nurse functioning as operations ofcer for the entire mission. Along with Cathy Blair-Perrine, from Chester, Virginia, the nurses worked with two physicians Dr. Keith Williams, HOPE medical director for both rotations, and Dr. Russell Bowman, both on their rst mission with Project HOPE. Williams is an internal medicine physician who has completed his third year of a general surgical residency at Baylor. Bowman, a Sitka, Alaska emergency room doctor and administrator in the U.S. Public Health Service, was formerly with the U.S. Coast Guard. Dobson said the volunteers, along with their counterparts in the U.S. Navy, helped stage a health fair in Freeport to address acute health issues of the people living there. The ve volunteers helped treat the more than 2000 patients who came through the medical site during the three-day health fair. While Williams did a few simple surgical procedures in addition to seeing patients, more complex surgical patients were referred to Redemption Hospital down the street, where free care was provided. I only wished I could have done more, he said. Blair-Perrine set up a separate injection station for the many patients needing shots, and worked non-stop to perfect the patient ow process. She was also able to manage some health education teaching for both her patients and her Liberian nurse counterpart. Bauer and Dobson manned the triage station, determining each patients most pressing medical concern and making sure they were seen by the correct provider. Sometimes it was a challenge trying to gure out what the patients were really there for because they use different terminology for their ailments than we do in the U.S. Dobson said. We relied on the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia who helped provide crowd control at the site to also translate for us. They were an invaluable aid, and were very compassionate towards the people. After wrapping up a busy week treating patients at the heath fair, the three Project HOPE nurses took advantage of a day off by visiting James N. Davies Jr. Memorial Hospital in Paynesville City, and working side-by-side with the health care team there. Davies is a small hospital specializing mainly in women and childrens health issues. Blair-Perrine spent the day in the intensive care unit and was put to work inserting IVs, doing dressing changes and giving multiple medications to critically ill children. She was amazed to nd that one nurse is usually responsible for 20 or more patients in the intensive care setting, Dobson wrote. Cathy was able to do some teaching regarding thermoregulation of tiny infants and shared tips on workow with her counterparts. The visit was a wonderful opportunity to exchange information, share ideas and build relationships with the Liberian nurses and doctors. It is amazing to see how they are able to care for these children with the small amount of supplies and equipment they have, Dobson said. Bauer used her expertise to work in the recovery room and attend rounds on complicated postpartum patients. She helped take care of a 23-month old infant with severe burns who had just come from the operating room. She was impressed with the vigilance of the recovery room nurse, who did not have all the monitoring equipment available to U.S. nurses, wrote Dobson. Most impressive to Fran was the stoicism shown by patients having painful procedures performed without the benet of pain medication. Dobson spent her time on the pediatric ward seeing a variety of patients, including many with malaria. There were also two rooms devoted entirely to pediatric burn patients, she wrote. What was most amazing to me was that there were dened clinical treatment protocols that were used to make sure that each child received appropriate care for his or her diagnosis. The physicians assistant who was coordinating their care was very compassionate, and took the time to teach the mothers about prevention before discharge. At a rural site in Ghana the following week, the team was told to expect 150-250 people at most on the rst day. Instead, they and their Navy counterparts treated more than 500 people during the rst day of operations, close to 800 on the second day, and more than 1,000 on the third day. Even though the site is rural and not easily accessible, word of the clinic spread fast and people traveled for miles to seek medical care from the American medical team, said Dobson. Bauer spent the rst day helping in the Womens Clinic, where she was impressed with the prenatal care the Ghanaian women receive. Each woman is seen several times during her pregnancy, and all exam information is recorded in a booklet she brings to each appointment. Teaching is ongoing during the pregnancy and continues well into the postpartum period, Dobson wrote. Fran also learned several Ghanaian phrases used in maternalchild nursing! The American doctors were kept busy seeing a steady stream of patients. For the most part, the patients were healthier than those seen in Liberia, but several newly diagnosed cases of high blood pressure were found and referred for treatment. Bowman told Dobson that here one was challenged to use ones knowledge base and instincts to make a diagnosis, rather than relying on the tests and diagnostic procedures used in an American medical practice. We just say, this is what you have and treat it, he said. Blair-Perrine and Dobson were in the front of the clinic triaging patients, weighing children, and taking blood pressure. Its clear how important this clinic is to the people because they all came dressed in their Sunday-best clothes, BlairPerrine said. With the masses of people dressed in brightly colored native dress, order was maintained with the help of the Ghanaian police and armed forces, and local nurses helped with translation, as most of the patients spoke a local dialect, Twe, and not English. Working with the local providers is one of the best parts of this mission, as they are able to teach us as much as we teach them, BlairPerrine said. In the spirit of being a part of the mission from beginning to end, HOPE doctors and nurses were all involved in the clean-up of the grounds after the clinic was done. Clinic workers were amazed and grateful to see that the team would all participate to make sure their workplace was left without any litter as a result of the visit. Volunteers Bauer, Blair-Perrine, and Bowman left for home after the Ghana site was concluded, with the thanks of the participants of Africa Partnership Station. Project HOPE volunteers were integral to the success of this mission, Lt. Cmdr. Rommel Flores said.Nurse joins in Project HOPE Africa missionPROJECT HO O PE E | Special to the TimesFran Bauer, right, is seen with a nurse from Ghana.

NORRIS CLERK OF COURT Gulf County, Florida BA Baxter Clerk/Deputy Clerk September 20,27, 2012 89082T PUBLIC NOTICE STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO GRANT VARIANCE The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to grant a variance under Section 403.201, F.S., from the provisions of Rules 62-346.302(1)(c), 62-302.700(1), and 62-4.242(2)(a)2.b., F.A.C., to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, Attn: Curtis M. Flakes, Chief, Planning and Environmental Division, P.O. Box 2288, Mobile, Alabama 36628, (File No.19-0270106-002-EV), to allow the disposal of dredged material within Class II waters (designated for shellfish harvesting) adjacent to the existing Eastpoint breakwaters, and from the provisions of the Antidegradation Rule 62-4.242(2)(a)2.b., F.A.C. to allow turbidity levels at the edge of the mixing zones within Outstanding Florida Waters (OFWs) to exceed background levels within St. George Sound, a Class II OFW restricted for shellfish harvesting. The petition for variance was received on August 6, 2012. The Department intends to grant the proposed variance because there are no practicable means known or available for the adequate control of the pollution and turbidity involved. The Departments file on this matter is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Environmental Protection, 160 W. Government Street, Pensacola, Florida 32502, Telephone: 850-595-8300. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, F lorida 32399-3000. Mediation under Section 120.573 of the F. S., is not available. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to redetermine final agency action on the application, the filing of a petition for an administrative hearing may result in a modification of the agency action or even a denial of the application. If a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing or request for an extension of time to file a petition is timely filed, this agency action automatically becomes only proposed agency action on the application, subject to the result of the administrative review process. Accordingly, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities in accordance with this variance until the deadlines noted below for filing a petition for an administrative hearing, or request for an extension of time has expired. Under Rules 28106.111(3) and 62110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments action may also request an extension of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for filing a petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to file a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect. In the event that a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Any intervention will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. In accordance with Rules 28-106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3)(a), F.A.C., petitions for an administrative hearing by the applicant must be filed within 14 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to written notice under S ection 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of the notice or within 14 days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under S ection 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action; and (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes that the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action; (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agencys proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Departments action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301. Under s ections 120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a petition for administrative hearing must be dismissed by the agency if the petition does not substantially comply with the above requirements or is untimely filed. This action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department unless a petition is filed in accordance with the above. Upon the timely filing of a petition this order will not be effective until further order of the Department. This variance constitutes an order of the Department. The applicant has the right to seek judicial review of the order under Section 120.68, Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rule 9.110, Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure, with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida, 323993000; and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal.

CLASSIFIEDSThursday, September 20, 2012 The Times | A17 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By JOHN ROSSHEIMMonster Senior Contributing Writer After youve successfully completed a job search, shouldnt networking be the last thing on your mind? Not so, say networking experts. In fact, internal networking, right from the beginning, is key to maintaining the upward trajectory of your career. Heres how to successfully launch your networking campaign at a new job. Why network from the start? When you start in a job, youre going to be judged early, and you want to be judged as someone who makes things happen, says Richard Moran, a partner at venture capital firm Venrock Associates. Introducing yourself to co-workers in a wide range of roles is a good way to begin. So networking is important from the get-go. But given your newbie status, your internal networking should be carefully calibrated. Soon after you start a job, youve got to increase your visibility, but without being pompous, says Bill Behn, managing director for financial staffing firm SolomonEdwardsGroup. Whom to network with Even early on, your network needs to go beyond the folks in adjoining cubes without embracing everyone on the payroll. But where to begin? Start your networking with people who started the same job you have about a year ago, because theyll tell you what youre going to be measured on, advises Moran. After that, says Gayle Lantz, president of consulting firm WorkMatters Inc., ask your boss who the most important people are for you to meet. Next, seek out people with more clout, Moran says. Organizations have samurai who are out there doing the big stuff every day, and you have to figure out who they are and whether you can become one, he adds. Making internal networking work When youre new on the job, you want to make a lot of contacts fairly quickly while also building your reputation as a hard worker. You dont want to be the person whos hanging out at everyones cubicle, says Brendan Courtney, a senior vice president at staffing firm Spherion. You want to take advantage of those opportunities that happen during lunch or while youre getting coffee. When youre asking for more substantial advice, be mindful of your colleagues full schedules. Breakfast, before the workday starts, is a good time to pick peoples brains, Courtney suggests. Casting your network Its also important to extend your network beyond your department or division. Theres a body of research that says that your weaker ties get you jobs; your stronger ties are mostly to people who already know each other, says Jeanne Hurlbert, president of Optinet Resources LLC and a professor of sociology at Louisiana State University. Strong ties can have positive payoffs in terms of promotion. So look for opportunities to branch out. Volunteer to serve on a cross-functional team, advises Lantz. Meeting regularly with people from other departments is an ideal way to network and learn about othe r aspects of the business. Supercharging your networking Especially when youre a rookie, a mentor can be a great help in extending the upward reach of your internal network There are usually three or four people who set the tone of the companys value system, says Courtney. Its good to have one of them as your mentor; someone who can help prepare you for your next step in the organization. But, Courtney cautions, do tread carefully when choosing a mentor. If youre creating a mentor relationship outside your immediate manager, you hav e to let your manager know, he says. Letting your network work Finally, most of your internal networking efforts should be low-key and informal. If you set up too many meetings too early, people will think, What does this guy want from me? says Behn. And although networking is important, many other priorities will compete for you r attention in the beginning. Says Moran: You dont have to start networking before lunch on your first day.

Capt. Andrew Lansdell Wing was pivotal to the development of the system of ferries connecting Apalachicola to the east end of the county prior to the construction of the Gorrie Bridge. Though others had tried, Wing was the rst to successfully run a passenger boat between Apalachicola and Carrabelle, He began with the Gazelle, a schooner he co-owned with one of the Yents, probably Samuel. He next bought a small steamer, the X-L, and then a steam tug, the Iola, constructed in 1881 in Carrabelle by C.L. Storrs, to run the route. Wing sold his boats to the Carrabelle Tallahassee and Georgia Railroad when it bought the steamer Crescent City. From 1890 to 1922, with Wing at the helm, she ran a regular route between Apalachicola and Carrabelle carrying passengers to and from the Carrabelle train depot. Originally named the Harry Hill, she was brought south from the St. Johns River. Wing made more than 20,000 trips on the Crescent City. When the Crescent City ceased to operate in 1922 because the route was no longer pro table, Wing resumed his own ferry service, calling it Captain Wings Boat Line. He bought back the Iola, now named the J.P. Williams, running her rst trip on New Years Day 1923. In April, the J.P. Williams was rebuilt with a new engine that burned crude oil, renamed the Jessie May after Wings daughter and launched by Wing in partnership with Capt. James Storrs. The Jessie May made daily trips from Apalachicola to the Carrabelle depot and also made excursions to St. George Island. William Lee Popham, the famous Oyster King, and rst developer of St. George Island set up the next documented ferry service. Popham ran a hotel and restaurant on the island and sold real estate, along with managing an oyster processing business. He built a boardwalk across the island, from the bay to the gulf, for prospective buyers to view the land. In 1906, Popham leased the Sadie J for $20 a month from African American entrepreneur Spartan Jenkins. She was an enclosed excursion boat and the rst motorized vessel on the bay. In modern comfort, Pophams clients were ferried to the oyster bars and the island. In July 1919, Pophams organization, the St. George Co-Operative Colony Unincorporated, purchased the May ower to haul freight and passengers from the mainland to the island. She was soon replaced by the Edna. They continued to ferry passengers and freight to Pophams development until Pophams fortunes oundered in a sea of litigation, accusations and tax liens in the early 1920s. Popham owned one of the rst automobiles in Apalachicola, a red Willys-Knight widely considered to be the most elegant car in the county. By 1926, cars had become common in the boom town and in the country at large. During the early 1920s, when automobiles became accessible to the American middle class, ads for cars, service, fuel and accessories grew more and more common in the Apalachicola Times until, in 1928, the town boasted at least three car dealerships. A demonstration of the Whippet, an American car built in European style, rated front page coverage. Newly mobile tourists were ocking south. A plan was underway to build a network of highways opening Florida to tourism and the last link in the chain of westward roads was a bridge across the Apalachicola River between Apalachicola and Eastpoint. No reliable way of crossing the river existed and a detour of about 100 miles was necessary to make the crossing by land. Individuals, but not cars, could nd passage across on vessels bearing freight. During the early 1920s, newspaper articles mention a boat called the Wave, in particular, as a means of passage from shore to shore, although it is unclear where she docked on the east side or if there were regularly scheduled trips. But thats another story. Next week, the Short Cut and the Save Time come to Eastpoint. FERRIES from page A1 FROM THE WING FAMILY COLLECTIONAndrew Lansdell and wife, Nancy Elizabeth Wing.
