We expect it to be one of the best, said John Solomon, president of the nonpro t that oversees the affair. Its shaping up to be a very good one. Theres a lot of growth and interest this year in the festival. As proof of his assertion, Solomon cited Saturday evenings headline entertainment, country star Lee Brice, whose hit song Hard to Love has reached No. 1 on Billboards country chart. Two days before he steps on stage, Brice will be at the Country Music Awards, striding the red carpet with his ance as he waits to learn whether he will take home the honor of being selected Best New Artist of the Year. But more than even music, the festival is about the rich, and stressed, bounty from the sea that has made Franklin County renowned. Selected as King Retsyo this year is County Commissioner Smokey Parrish, and hell be escorting his queen, Franklin County High School senior Christina Collins, the student-athlete selected from among robust competition at an August pageant for the honor of Miss Florida Seafood. Collins, daughter of Cindy Collins and Johnny Collins, has plans to study mathematics at Florida State By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com Its going to be a busy weekend for Lee Brice, starting tonight with the Country Music Awards. Which is probably why he burnt off some steam last Thursday before his concert at Cains Ballroom, a classic cowboy club in Tulsa, Okla. He had dragged some mats in from his tour bus to do a little jiu-jitsu and boxing exercise. My stresses have to be prioritized, said Lee, a 33-year-old country singer-songwriter on course for a remarkable breakout year, playing more than 200 tour dates across the country, including an 8 p.m. concert Saturday night in Apalachicola to highlight the 49th annual Florida Seafood festival. I try to separate music from home, he said. Im always one to say I can get to the woods if I can nd time. Just being home, just getting home and being there for a few days, and being at the house, my stress kind of decompresses. Back home in Nashville, Lee has the chance to spend family time with his ance, Sara Reeveley, and their 4-year-old son, Takoda. I want him to have a stable thing at home; stability is a big thing for kids, Lee said. My little boy requires a lot, so when Im there, I have to be there. Luckily this thing doesnt happen overnight. Ive been able to slowly adjust to this, said Lee, whose second album Hard 2 Love was released in April and already has spawned the platinum hit A Woman Like You and the gold Hard To Love. Ive done a lot of things, been on the road for seven years, he Early voting strong as election nears By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin County has echoed the voting patterns of the rest of Florida with a strong show of early voting. A queue of registered voters greeted Supervisor of Elections Ida Elliott on Saturday at the Apalachicola ofce as early voting began. A total of 289 voters cast their ballots that day, 150 in Apalachicola and 130 at the Carrabelle annex. On Sunday, the numbers declined to 76 in Apalachicola and 40 in Carrabelle, but they picked right back up on Monday, when 134 cast ballots in Apalachicola and 105 in Carrabelle. On Tuesday, 114 voted in Apalachicola and 61 in Carrabelle, bringing the total up through Tuesday afternoon to 818, 474 in Apalachicola and 344 in Carrabelle. Everythings running smoothly, Elliott said. Early voting runs through Saturday, Nov. 3, in Apalachicola and in Carrabelle, with the choice of president highlighting the ballot. Those who want to vote early can do so in Apalachicola or Carrabelle annex, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. today and Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Elliott said she doesnt expect Saturday to do much business in Apalachicola, with the parade lling up downtown sidewalks. Well be here, she said. I think everybodys going to have one thing on their mind, and thats the festival. Theres going to be a lot of traf c. They may do well in Carrabelle, I dont know. Elliott said she expects the county to see an 80 to 85 percent turnout, bettering the 79.3 percent turnout four years ago. The county has 7,451 registered voters, of these 4,986 Democrats, 1,753 Republicans and 712 either unaf liated or with other parties, according to the supervisor of elections website, By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com The Coast Guard is searching off the Carolinas for a former Apalachicola sea captain who was swept off the deck of a tall ship by Hurricane Sandy. Robin Walbridge, 63, is the captain of the 180-foot, threemasted schooner HMS Bounty, a replica built from the plans of the original 18th century wooden ship in Nova Scotia to use in lming Mutiny on the Bounty with Marlon Brando in 1962. It later also appeared in a version of Treasure Island and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest. The Bounty, which since has acted as a training vessel and museum, is owned by New York businessman Robert Hansen. According to a Facebook page for the ship, Walbridge was trying to skirt the outer edge of Hurricane Sandy to safe harbor in St. Petersburg. In a press conference Monday, Tracie Simonin, director of the HMS Bounty Organization, said the ship tried to stay clear of Sandys power. It was something that we and the captain of the ship were aware of, Simonin said. The vessel left Connecticut on Thursday with a crew of 11 men and ve women, ranging in age from 20 to 66. Everyone aboard knew the journey could be treacherous. This will be a tough voyage for Bounty, read a posting on the ships Facebook page showing satellite images of the storm. She began to sink at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, about 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, November 1, 2012 (Pd.Pol.Ad.) By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com Editors note: This is the fourth in the series At Eternal Rest. On the moss-shrouded banks of the Ochlocknee River is a peaceful memorial park, slowly slipping out of memory. Cow Creek Cemetery is on private land, and though Florida law requires that close relatives be given access to family graves, this quiet retreat is not open to the public, even though it is still in use as an active burial site. Don and Pam Ashley, who live nearby, said they rst became aware of the graveyard when they purchased the old Bay City Lodge. It is uncertain how many souls rest in Cow Creek. A handful of stone markers, some very new, are visible, but Don Ashley said Amelia Rowell, former owner of Bay City, told him the eld once was crowded with cypress memorials, all of which have now disintegrated. What does remain is a single Woodmen of the World memorial in the form of a standing log, a stone marking the grave of a World War I veteran and what appears to be the faded headstone of a Confederate war veteran of the War Between the States amid a handful of low granite markers. Ashley said Rowell told him a German prisoner of war is buried here, who died while incarcerated at Camp Gordon Johnston, although no marker for that grave is in evidence. Hermann Blumhardt, who was a POW at the camp, told Linda Minichiello, director of the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum, that at least one German died here, victim of a murder. At the time, it was thought he might have been killed by another POW. Blumhardt said most soldiers were not members of the Nazi party, and when a Nazi was captured and imprisoned, he was not always welcomed by his countrymen. At the time of the death, there was an investigation, and all the POWs were punished, Blumhardt said, but the murderer never was identi ed. More than 2,500 Germans spent time at the camp. Because the U.S. adhered to the Geneva Convention, POWs at the camp received the same food and accommodations as the American GIs. Some made friends in the civilian community, and after the war, many remembered Carrabelle fondly and even dreamed of returning. Bay City Lodge was commandeered for the duration of the war as a club and conference center for highranking of cers at Camp Gordon Johnston. We will never know why he is buried at Cow Creek or if there was a memorial service. Nobody recalls and no record remains. Cow Creek Cemetery is next to the site of the old Langston Ferry dock that carried vehicles between Franklin and Wakulla counties. In an online article at www.CLJNews.com, Reddick Langston wrote that his grandfather, also Reddick Langston, moved to Wakulla in 1870. In 1876 or 1877, partners in both Franklin and Wakulla counties completed a road through the then virgin forest. Langston established two ferries, one at the present-day site on the Ochlocknee River bridge between Franklin and Wakulla counties and one farther north in Liberty County. A 5/8-inch steel cable was stretched across the river and secured on each side of the river bank. Two chains, attached to either end of the barge, were attached to steel rings, allowing the barge to be secure against the current of the river and at the same time to slide along the cable back and forth across the river. Power to move was provided by a long pole placed against the riverbed and pushed by hand. The Langstons lived on the east side of the Ochlocknee River, about a half-mile from the west river bank. In the early days, there were no regular scheduled trips. Travelers wishing to cross alerted them day or night by banging a metal rod hung at the ferry dock or blowing a cow horn or conch shell. Later, traf c was so heavy that two ferrymen manned the site during the day and one at night. The wreck of the last Langston Ferry still can be glimpsed from the Ochlocknee River bridge at low tide. In Wakulla, the traf c crossing the river included horse-drawn buggies and wagons and in later years, cars and trucks. The most unusual operation was the ferrying of a large circus across the river in 1926. This was also the main exit route for anyone from Franklin County seeking urgent medical help in Tallahassee or points farther north. Rowell told Ashley she believed the cemetery was founded to accommodate patients who didnt survive the journey. A true scary story Editors note: This is the last in a series of articles dealing with local burial sites and published in the Times in October 2010 through 2012. We hope you have enjoyed them. In the Halloween spirit, we close the series with a ghost story written by Troy Williams Sr. and originally published in the Times on Oct. 31, 2002. An old man told me this story when I was a teenager back in the 60s. It seems there was a teacher who lived in Apalachicola in the 1800s. She lived in a cabin with her bedridden mother. One morning, she got up and dressed for work. She fed her dear mother and made sure she had water and enough food until she came home from teaching. She kissed her mother goodbye and left the cabin. She had to walk through a short stretch of woods. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and a cool breeze came from the bay. All of a sudden, she felt like she was being watched. She turned back to look, and there about 20 feet from her was her mother, oating about three feet off the ground, and she could see through her, then she vanished. The teacher, with her heart in her throat, turned and ran back to the cabin as fast as she could. When she got to the cabin, she threw open the door, ran to the foot of her mothers bed and yelled Mother! Mother! Her mother sat up, looked at her, smiled and said, I scared you didnt I? Then fell back dead. LOIS SWOBODA | The Times LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Above, according to Don Ashley, this open area was once lled with cypress markers now just a dim memory. At center is a German prisoner of war. At right this old tombstone is decorated with a Palm Sunday ornament showing that Cow Creek is an active burial site.

Thursday, November 1, 2012 Special to the Times Floridas tax collectors, local ofcers directly accountable to the public, have warned that a sweeping plan to change the way Floridas license tags are issued will create a host of unanticipated problems for drivers including delays, lack of accountability, higher costs to consumers and reduced customer service. At an Oct. 17 news conference, Floridas 67 tax collectors voiced concerns about proposals that would eliminate the states current system for fullling mail and online orders at the local level and urged the governor and cabinet to carefully review any proposal to privatize and centralize that function. In discussions with the tax collectors, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Executive Director Julie Jones has been responsive to these concerns and agreed to separate consideration of the distribution method from plans to redesign all vehicle tags. But the tax collectors want clearer assurances the state will not go to a privatized, centralized distribution system and offered recommendations that would make the current system more efcient and generate more savings than the proposed changes. The tax collectors are joined in their concerns by the states foremost consumer advocate and a coalition of organizations that fear the new system will fail to meet car purchasers and eet owners need for speedy issuance of vehicle tags. In addition, a new report by Capital Analytics, a policy research company headed by longtime government budget director David Coburn, nds that the plan to issue tags from a centralized location would not produce the savings projected by the state. Our issue is not with the change in the plates. Our concern is with the idea of scrapping a system that currently works well for the people of our counties and replacing it with a system that hurts customer service, costs drivers more money and provides no real benet to the people, said Leon County Tax Collector Doris Maloy, president of Florida Tax Collectors Inc. If the state plans to reissue every tag in Florida within two years, we are prepared to accomplish that with an emphasis on outstanding, local customer service. DHSMV recently announced plans to redesign Floridas license tags using a at plate technology, which it says will make the tags more readable by tollbooth and red light cameras. The department also has proposed turning production and distribution of many tags to a single private company, removing the tax collectors from their public service role distributing convenience tag renewals. Maloy said the proposal will cost consumers money in the 16 counties that currently add no service charge when fullling mail and Internet orders, since the private vendor would add the charge for all tags. In addition, she said, customer service would suffer dramatically if such an important process is stripped from responsive, local public ofcials and turned over to a private, for-prot vendor. Maloy said the tax collectors have enjoyed a long and cooperative relationship with DHSMV and trust the department to recognize that improvements to the existing system are preferable to eliminating a system that has served the public well. Walter Dartland, executive director of the Consumer Federation of the Southeast, said the effects on the consumer must be foremost in deciding on such a sweeping change. Dartland praised DHSMV and the tax collectors for working in partnership in recent years to make tag and license services more consumer-friendly. Sometimes the most important question to ask is not what a proposed change would save, but what it would cost consumers, Dartland said. If taxpayers are losing time, local customer service and accountable oversight, thats a steep price with no real benet for consumers. Florida Tax Collectors Inc., the elected ofcials organization, commissioned Capital Analytics LLC to evaluate the effects of the DHSMV plan and under the leadership of Coburn, a former state budget director, it cited numerous instances of incorrect assumptions underlying the DHSMV proposal about revenues and the tax collectors ability to handle distribution of 15 million tags next year. The state has experienced a number of serious setbacks in implementing complex, statewide systems in recent years, the Capital Analytics report says. If there are serious problems with implementation or ongoing operation, the tax collectors will have already given up much of their capability to step in and deliver these services. A replacement vendor who can pick up immediately is unlikely to exist. Clearly, this scenario is not far-fetched. We see no indication that contingency planning has been considered at all by the department. Capital Analytics has noted annual savings, estimated by DHSMV at $123,000 per year, would be offset by some $400,000 in startup costs including development of bid requests, vendor selection and independent contract monitoring. Production of new tags will cost an estimated $31.4 million. Carrabelle market start slow but hopeful On Saturday, Oct. 27, there was a slow, but hopeful, start to the Carrabelle Market. In the newly nished lot/pavilion at the corner of State Road 67 and Avenue B N.W., vendors came to sell without charge. Chase Gray brought several tables of inexpensive beautiful items. Penny L Anderson displayed her original watercolors and spread enthusiasm to young artists. Vicki Harris contributed a sample of the works from Shop by the Sea, normally opened weekends next to the Smallest Police Station. Even though I was hoping for locally grown produce sellers, I am pleased that this space is available and, for now, free of charge. Hopefully the big market (every Saturday) and in-between weekends (still open to vendors) will encourage local growers and entrepreneurs to get involved. Pamela Bowne Carrabelle Prot is ne, just not at communitys expense This is in response to Francis L. Giknis letter to the editor in the Oct. 18 Times paper regarding Tony Shivers comments (Jackels knowledge of real estate an asset, Page A4). First off, it is not about making a prot, but how the prot is made and the consequences involving the prot. There is not anything wrong with making a prot. But when the prot is made without regard to the consequences of compromising the landscape and the ecosystem while disregarding the will of the majority, then you have a problem. Lets take Panama City Beach as an example. Remember when there were amusement parks, momand-pop establishments, and everything was not a rat race? Look at it now: The big developers come in, and now all you have are high-rise condos up and down the beach. They thought they could build these condos and make a huge prot, but it didnt work because of the economy. I remember when you could ride along the road and actually see the beach; now you have to go to a special parking lot and walk down just to see the beach. We do not want that here in Franklin County, do we? This is what Tony Shiver is ghting against. Tony Shiver is here to preserve our history and protect our future. He is not adverse to progress, but his type of progress would benet this community in a way that our history is not destroyed. Franklin County is a place that people come to enjoy the peace, beautiful scenery, our wonderful seafood, quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. We do not need people to come to our county and tell us how to run our lives when they themselves are only here part-time and do not ever plan on living here permanently. Mr. Shivers referral to improvements were for additional services and businesses that would benet the community as a whole, not just a few. As to the comment about Mr. Shivers family making a prot, if you had researched the areas past, you would have found that Mr. and Mrs. Armistead helped put the very rst auction for the St. George Island Volunteer Fire Department in place. They were and are still big supporters of the chili cook-off that benets the St. George Island Volunteer Fire Department as well as the SGI First Responders. They also were very active in bringing the First Baptist Church to the island as well. All the businesses run by the Armistead family provide a valuable service to the island as well as the community, unlike condos that only benet the owners and a handful of paid employees. These same developments would push the current working class out of the area, eliminating not only the natural resources through dense population growth and contributed pollution, but a way of life for thousands. Roxanne Christie The ant and the grasshopper, retold The ant went about his business every day, out of necessity because there was no one else to do his work for him. He dug his tunnels, thoughtfully deciding where to place chambers for storing winter food as well as other chambers for living. He believed in individual responsibility, had no self-pity and as a result, created a good life for himself. The grasshopper watched how well the ant was living and not only became envious, but felt quite strongly something just was not right. There was too much difference between the meager comforts and limited quality of life, so he decided to call a press conference. NBC, ABC, CNN, NPR were all there to give their full support in telling this important story of economic injustice. The grasshopper gave a full account of his entitlement demands; the bureaucratic agencies must use their authority to make the ant share his wealth, as it was mostly ill-gotten anyway. Steadily the wheels of bureaucratic government turned. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae decided the ants housing must be shared with the grasshopper. EPA found the ant to be in noncompliance, therefore DOJ saw grounds to bring a federal lawsuit against the ant. The pressure was too much, The ant moved out, and the grasshopper moved into a much more comfortable lifestyle. However, it was just a matter of time before the lack of maintenance and upkeep caused the new housing to show serious deterioration and its new inhabitant was again becoming dissatised. How could this be? The changes so eagerly sought and generously promised just were not working out. Please, will the reader nish the story (Author unknown, but is one wise person.) Frank Venable Eastpoint All students must be at grade level Editors note: The following is a letter written last month by Floridas new commissioner of education to all of the states school superintendents. At its Oct. 9 meeting the State Board of Education adopted a strategic plan to guide the Florida Department of Educations work through 2012-18. In reviewing the current status of Floridas students, the data show that students in certain subgroups are achieving less than others. Our vision and mission is to ensure 100 percent of students achieve at or above grade level. The overall vision of the board, stated clearly in the plan, is that Florida have a world-class education system that engages and prepares all students to be globally competitive for college and careers. This means 100 percent of students scoring at or above grade level in the core subject areas. The approved plan includes one measure that breaks down student achievement goals by subgroup. The strategic targets established for the six-year period covered by the plan represent a more rapid rate of improvement in the percentage of students proficient in English language arts, science, and mathematics than has ever been experienced in any prior six-year period in the history of this state. For the first time, the plan specifically reports the current proficiency status of specific subgroups and establishes a minimum proficiency target for each of these subgroups over a six-year horizon. The board determined it was important to know how students are performing in each subgroup since they examined current data that shows an unacceptable student achievement gap. While the six-year target prociency levels are aggressive, they reect acknowledgement by the board that none of the demographic subgroups will achieve 100 percent prociency by the end of this period; however, the board continues to move forward each year with its strategic plan and the gap will be reduced until all subgroups are on grade level by 2022. The state board set higher expectations for the rate of growth in prociency levels for those subgroups with the lowest percentages of students currently performing at grade level. This is part of an intentional strategy to challenge our schools to eliminate the achievement gap among subgroups and will be reected in school accountability policies required by the board during this period. Contrary to some misunderstandings, this plan does not in any way set lower standards for any student or subgroup. It does, however, set expectations for moving those subgroups that are furthest behind toward 100 percent prociency at an accelerated pace. This is the only way to close the achievement gap and make sure all students can reach grade level prociency. While this is a heavy lift, we must not waiver in our commitment to move all students to perform on grade level and I ask for your help in reaching this goal.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, November 1, 2012 By JOAN MATEY Special to the Times An enchanting array of more than 1000 colorful lanterns transformed the Crooked River Lighthouse Park into a magical venue last weekend. The old maritime landmark celebrates its 1895 birthday at this event, with a lantern for every year of its age. The aerial view from the top of the tower was well worth the climb. Activities started off with three craft experts, presenting skills that would be very valuable to know if one was ever lost in the Florida wilderness. Ken Horne of Tallahassee displayed amazingly strong ropes and nets, patiently handtwisted from bear grass, palm bers, as well as animal skins and sinew. Sopchoppy thatcher Nelson Martin demonstrated the process of creating a woven palm roof for a shelter. Mary Bower of Satsuma wove wisteria into useful gathering baskets, as well as intricate vessels made from coiled pine needles. Two very talented musicians, Ralph Master Chief Peltier and Rick Ott set a happy tone for strolling around the park. Artistic shshaped lanterns that were created at the workshop on Friday were hung from the trees, and Two Als Restaurant served some tasty gumbo, jerked chicken and the best local burger around. The entertainment drew a good crowd of around 300 folks. The talented Tallahassee Community College Dance Company, which has fallen in love with Carrabelle, gave their second annual performance designed specically to cause everyone watching to say: Wow! Dressed totally in black and using brilliant spheres, rods and glowing gloves they created dancing arcs of vivid color with precision movement and fantastic music. Cant wait to see what theyll add to it next year! In keeping with the survivors theme, the original one-act play Last of the Lost was written by local actor Don Denig. This is his second play written for the lighthouses Wooden Ship Stage, an actual 70-foot long playground ship that adapts beautifully for play performances. Denig gave a convincing and compelling portrayal of the nal survivor of a shipwreck. The poor bloke slowly goes mad, has conversations with a rat, and is taunted by two illuminated ghosts played by Melanie Humble and Richard MacLean. Other talented community actors in the play were Will Morris and Jim Smith. As the nal scene of the play, the audience entered the dark and foreboding bilge of the ship, where a transparent spirit, caught in a spiral of the last moments of his life, reached out for help. Spooky... and a very clever illusion. The lighthouse staff and volunteers will continue to utilize our wonderful ship for future hauntings in the spirit of Halloween, but Lantern Fest will always maintain an air of delight and enchantment in recognition of the rst lighting of the tower over a century ago. The Carrabelle Lighthouse Association has been gradually acquiring equipment to enhance live performances and is seeking experienced writers, actors and directors to create nautical-themed productions. Themes about local maritime history are preferred, and childrens plays are also welcomed. Please call the lighthouse ofce at 697-2732 if you are interested in developing a show. And dont miss next years Lantern Fest! Check our website www. crookedriverlighthouse. org or like us on Facebook for a schedule of future programs and events. We will be showing more vintage maritime movies in the park again soon. We need volunteers for all our fun activities.

Amid 40 mph winds and 18-foot seas, Walbridge ordered his crew to abandon ship after an engine failed and the Bounty began to take on water faster than pumps could remove it. Crew members were out tted in bright red survival suits. Capt. Jerry Weber of Apalachicola said these suits mask human scent from predators, ght hypothermia and often contain EPIRB tracking beacons or a are. According to reports from the scene of the Coast Guard rescue, one crew member was spotted oating alone in the water because of a strobing beacon attached to his gear. Fourteen members of the crew successfully launched in lifeboats, but Walbridge and two female sailors were swept overboard by a wave. One woman managed to reach a lifeboat. The second woman, First Mate Claudene Christian, 42, was recovered from the water late Monday, but rescuers were unable to revive her. She has been called the rst North American casualty of Sandy. All 14 crew members initially evacuated were airlifted by the Coast Guard on Monday morning amid what one rescue swimmer described as 30-foot waves. Walbridge still is missing and the subject of an ongoing Coast Guard search. Kristen Anderson of Apalachicola knows Walbridge well. She said he came to Apalachicola in the early 1990s and taught a captains course here that she attended. He was a big boon to the community and helped a number of local captains become quali ed to take on charter passengers, she said. He was the captain who trained the captain of the USS Constitution, referring to the refurbished schooner originally launched in 1797 that is the oldest commissioned U.S. Navy vessel. She said he was also pivotal in the rescue and renovation of the Bounty. He was completely and totally devoted to the Bounty, Capt. Randy Mims said. It was by his efforts the ship stayed maintained. He was one of the best square rigger sailors left in the world, and that is a dying art. Anderson said he helped with the Governor Stone when it was based in Apalachicola. I spent one of the best days of my entire life with Robin on the Governor Stone. Two couples from St. George Island wanted to go to Little St. George. When they showed up on the dock, it was clear the women were not pleased with spending all day on the boat. Conditions were absolutely perfect. It was so beautiful, she said. The Stone heeled over a little bit and went to work like a good horse. Later, when we were out on the bay, one of the wives said to her husband, Why dont you get rid of that boat youve got and get something like this? Robin was a sailor, Anderson said. And if youre a sailor, when times up, thats the best way for a sailor to go. VOTING from page A1 SPECIAL TO THE TIMES HMS Bounty MISSING from page A1

University before returning to Franklin County to work in the family business. She had a bevy of appearances in recent days. Its such a great honor, she said. Its mostly like a way of life. Thats how locals look at it. Parrish said he was proud to stand besides Collins in their roles. I think shes go ing to be great representing the county. Shes very intel ligent and speaks well. Shes going to present Franklin County and the industry well, representing our heri tage and way of life. The seafood industry is the cradle in which Parrish was born 51 years ago in Pascagoula, Miss., while his dad was shing off the coast. Married to wife Angela, with three sons, Billy, 31, Smokey Jr., 27, and Dalyn, 15, and a granddaughter Keelee Bray, 3, Parrish now works for Ward and Sons Seafood, one of the countys oldest and most respected seafood processors. I got in on the process ing end rather then the sh ing end, said Parrish, who shrimped with his dad on summer vacations begin ning at age 7. After graduating from Apalachicola High School in 1979, Parrish attended Gulf Coast Community College for a while and then worked a year in construction be fore establishing a seafood industry career. He now is one of the countys most listened-to experts on the industry and how it can be helped during these turbu lent years. I think its an honor to represent the seafood in dustry and try to promote the seafood industry with all the battles were facing, he said. With the state of the bay as it is, they wanted a strong spokesman to speak out for the seafood industry and who had a great amount of knowledge and how to ad dress the problems were facing at this time. Were facing a lot of difcult regulations, he said, as he drove back from a meeting of the Florida Commission on Oil Spill Response Coordination. Basically were on a down cycle as far as freshwater we need, and with FDA regulations, theres a mul titude of problems right now hitting the seafood industry from all different angles. Being a resilient people, we just have to push forward and try to bring seafood in dustry back to what it once was and bring economic revival back to our commu nity, Parrish said. In addition to savoring fresh, locally caught sea food, festival goers will have a lot to enjoy, beginning Fri day night when the festival is free. School is out, so the park opens at 10 a.m., with the festivities formally com mencing with the 4 p.m. Blessing of the Fleet, when the king and queen will ar rive via the water to smile on their constituencies. Speaking of constituencies, Solomon said Saturdays 10 a.m. parade through U.S. 98 in Apalachicola has a boat load of politicians in it, three days before the election. On Friday, its party time at the festivities, with lots of rides and amusements and music from 5-10:30 p.m. Therell be the usual tables of organizations, vendors and artists spread through Battery Park. Ex pect a surprise or two, like a huge wooden chair made by Don Lane and Bill Cox. Arts and crafts is com pletely stacked full again, Solomon said. We couldnt get another one in there if we tried. We have 25 non prot groups in the park and 13 nonprots on food row. The festival continues at the crack of dawn Saturday, with a 7 a.m. registration for the Redsh Run on the front steps of the Gibson Inn. Runners take off on the 5K at 8 a.m. At 10 a.m. the gates open for the festival. It takes a $5 admission charge to get in, and that covers everything, including the 8 p.m. show by Brice. Kids under 12 are free. We dont allow glass bottles into the park, and no dogs, Solomon said. The county humane society is doing dog watching at the Bay Avenue gate for those who are interested. After what will be an enormous parade ends, the festival gets into full gear. From 1-5 p.m., theres Blue Crab races, at the top of each hour, for kids under 12. Winners get prizes; losers can search for a faster crus tacean for next year. At 1 p.m. theres the oyster shucking contest, including Mike Martin, the Panama City shucker and returning champion, who last month won his third consecutive national cham pionship in Maryland. At 1:15 p.m., your taste buds will be royally twisted by the Oyster Eating Con test, where contestants eat as many oysters as they can in the allotted time, or to their stomachs displea sure, whichever comes rst. Understandably, there is no entry fee. Music is all day on the main stage, beginning at noon with Ashley Carroll. At 2 p.m., entertainment con tinues with Living Waters Church, Eastpoint Church of God youth band, Highway 67 and Lisa Shaffer. At 11 p.m. the park clos es. The way of life continues, indenitely.

We need to wait until we get married, and then as soon as we get married Lee said. Two big passions coursed through Brices own childhood: music and football. He learned to play the piano growing up in Sumter, S.C., and then was taught his rst guitar chords by his moms brother, Carlyle Lewis, known as Uncle Boy for being the only boy among all sisters. He taught me chords, and then from there I taught myself, Brice said. The burly baritone with gentle grey-blue eyes sang in church and wrote his own songs, including one in his sophomore year, Ive Grown to Love You, that won him a talent contest. I had my cowboy hat, two-tone, button-down, long sleeves on, and I won, and won every year after that, Brice said. He and his friends had a band The 12 Bridges, named for a road right down from the two-mile stretch where they were all from. They played locally, everything from Hank Williams Jr. to Aerosmith, half of them covers and half originals. That range of musical tastes is in keeping with Brices in uences, which he said encompass everything from gospel and country, especially Garth Brooks, to Eminem, Foo Fighters, Guns N Roses and Coldplay. Ive been in uenced by every genre there is, he said. On my next album, theres de nitely a lot more music I want to share. Brices journey to Nashville came after he indulged the other great love of his boyhood: football. The inside linebacker and offensive lineman on a 17-player team that won the lower state championship his junior year, Brice was pretty damn good at it, he said. Recruited to play for several Division I schools, Brice was invited to walk on at Clemson and played there for a year before an injury, and the lure of Nashville, sidelined the gridiron dream. I went and visited Nashville and knew immediately, he said. I thought Well, Ill move here for the summer. There was no turning back, and I never made it back to Clemson. Brice, however, is making it back on Saturday morning for the wedding of a longtime college buddy, a fellow engineering student at Clemson, who met his bride after one of Brices concerts. WEDDING SATURDAY MORNING Were sitting at the bar after one of my shows, and ice starts getting thrown and we gure theyre throwing it at me. Come to nd out this beautiful bombshell is directly hitting Bert with this ice, Brice said. Now theyre getting married, and Ill play a song at the wedding. I promised him. Those vocals will be at the marriage of Bert Bagley and Jolene Weikel in Thomasville, Ga., that afternoon, and then Brice is hauling butt up to the show. He said he plans to savor some of Apalachicolas oysters and see how they compare to the ones he had at the Oyster Fest Block Party he played at Shaws Crab House in Chicago three weeks ago. I ordered all the oysters they had, Brice said. I really like them raw. Concertgoers can expect something special Saturday night, from a talented performer and songwriter whose Crazy Girl was named the most played song of 2011, who has written hits for Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw and more, and who holds Billboards record for the longest charting country song with Love Like Crazy, named the most played song of 2010. I have an unbelievable band. Theyve been with me for a long time, since the very beginning, Brice said. Thats kind of rare. I couldnt do this if I just hired guys to come out. I wouldnt have the same show, Brice said. Youll see the difference; theyre not hired guns to stand there. Were just working hard, and while the irons hot, I want to strike, Brice said. The irons hot for us, we have a song sitting at number one and its great for us. I want to push my shows as far as I can push it. BRICE from page A1

Youths younger than 16 years of age can now purchase their rst annual freshwater, saltwater or hunting license, which will remain valid until their 17th birthday, no matter how young they are when they buy it. All three types of licenses are $17. Youre never too young to start contributing to our great states hunting and shing heritage and protecting our wild habitats and resources, said Richard Corbett, a commissioner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. And this new ability to purchase a license creates a wonderful opportunity to do just that. Youths younger than 16 years of age will still have to complete the states hunter safety certi cation before taking advantage of this special license opportunity for hunting. The classes are free. Safety classes arent required for shing licenses. Another opportunity for youths is the $100 Gold Sportsmans license, which authorizes the holder to take game and freshwater or saltwater sh and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (craw sh) permit privileges. For every year that passes until a youth turns 17, the FWC will receive about $7 in matching federal funds, which will be used to preserve and manage the almost 6 million acres of the states public hunting, wildlife management area system and the states saltwater and freshwater sheries. Go to MyFWC.com/ HunterSafety to learn when to register a child for a hunter safety class. The new hunting and shing youth licenses can be purchased at all outlets that sell hunting and shing licenses, such as the of ce of Tax Collector Jimmy Harris. They also can be bought at MyFWC. com. The youth license became available at the same time the FWC launched its new Recreational License Issuance Services on Oct. 2. The license vendor is Brandt Information Services of Tallahassee. Genee Heinke, who you may know from Apalachicola Ace Hardware, took the day off Wednesday, Oct. 24, to go shing with her shing guide hubby David. This is one of nine red sh she caught shing out of Apalachicola. DAVID HEINKE Special to the Times By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com A group of Franklin County high school students and its mentor are taking the problem of litter in hand, literally. Students against Plastic Pollution (SAPP) is on a mission. Science teacher Heidi Montgomery and her students are working to raise awareness about trash, especially in and around Apalachicola Bay. Since the beginning of the school year, Montgomery and about a dozen of her students have met twice a month to collect litter. Last term, they raised $1,400 to post a sign on the Eastpoint waterfront for three months reminding people that plastic pollution is a problem. On Friday, the sign came down and the group is once again seeking donations to post another billboard. Montgomery said she was disappointed they werent able to raise enough funds to save the rst sign, but it wasnt a very good location, she said. The Apalachicola Rotary Club and the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve each donated several hundred dollars for the rst sign. Montgomery said she is seeking funds again or suggestions for fundraisers. Other projects Montgomery would like to see funded include a bring your own bag incentive program at local grocery stores, installation of a ltered water bottle ller for the school so kids will have options other than disposable water bottles and the sale of metal water bottles and canvas shopping bags with the SAPP logo to raise funds. By the way, the organization doesnt have a logo yet and they are looking for an artist to design one pro bono. On Saturday, Montgomerys pollution police were cleaning up the beach adjacent to the Eastpoint shing pier. By far, the most common litter was plastic and glass beverage bottles. A single trash heap on the edge of the brush yielded 31 beer bottles. Some other common items discarded were diapers, rope, ice bags, plastic motor oil containers, cigarette butts, food containers of all kinds and snuff cans. Much of the litter had obviously oated ashore, perhaps discarded by boats on the bay. Middle school science teacher Stacey DeVaughn joined Montgomerys group in the clean up this week. Her sons Stefan and Walker are members of SAPP. Please tell people not to throw things out of their boats, DeVaughn said, Bag your trash and take it ashore. The environmentalists braved a grey and breezy afternoon and some very smelly trash items to do their good work. Its terrible that theres so much trash, said Montgomery. Its so beautiful and it could be so much more beautiful. Who wants to eat seafood from a town that has trash everywhere? Several students wondered aloud if tougher enforcement of litter laws and warning signs would stem the seemingly endless ow of garbage. More unusual items discovered were a shing lure, a broken shing pole, a disassembled shoe and one of the rubber pep bracelets distributed by the Franklin County School this fall. The students took the trouble to sort and recycle much of the trash. In addition to a good feeling, they get community service time for the hours they spend collecting trash. That helps with college admissions and scholarship applications, said senior Stephan DeVaugn. He said membership in the National Honor Society requires a minimum of 18 hours of community service per semester. If you want to contribute to SAPP or to suggest a project or fundraiser, please call Montgomery at 653-5679 or visit montgomeryscience. org.

M L S #247359..............$289,000 N EW C ON S TRUCTION N EW C ON S TRUCTION On Saturday, Blake Hutchinson returned to Carrabelle to stage the third annual Festival of Speed. He now also stages speed events in Clayton, Ga. Hutchinson said this was the best ever for the Carrabelle venue. Sixty drivers registered to race and 50 came to the meet. The weather was, for the rst time, drop-dead gorgeous. The only hitch in the days competition was a brief interlude when a spotted hound chased a deer onto the runway of Thompson Field, where the speed trials take place. Saturday was also the rst day of deer dog training for local hunters. Airport Manager Mark Nobles pursued the pair but they hastily adjourned on their own into the scrub to the west of the runway. We dont want a car to make contact with a dog at these speeds, said Nobles. The record for Saturday, 169 mph set by Peter Nakhla, was less than the previous Carrabelle record set in 2011, 175 mph. Still it was nothing to sneer at. Hutchinson said the half-mile runway give racers a unique opportunity to safely open it up and test their vehicles. On his wannaGOFAST website, Hutchinson wrote that his event was founded in order to ll a niche in the motorsports market place. Our goal was to create a safe and controlled environment for fellow car enthusiasts to pursue their Need for Speed without the restrictions of the standard one-eighth or one-quarter mile drag strip. Weve taken a retro approach to what Americana used to be and fast forwarded it into modern day times with an ef cient and unique event platform. There are safety requirements for participants. They must wear closed toed shoes and long pants as well as a helmet certi ed by the Snell Memorial Foundation, or the U.S. Department of Transportation. Each vehicle must also pass a prerace inspection. Local businesses get a boost from the one day event. I noticed quite a few of the (race) cars in the lot of the Franklin Hotel last night, Nobles said. The race generates business for local fuel stations and restaurants as well bringing more than 40 drivers with friends and family to the county. There were about 40 people on hand to observe Saturdays race, scattered on the grassy strip that runs next to the runway. Stooping to pick up a water bottle, Nobles said, I have to admit, every time theyve come, they cleaned up after themselves so you couldnt even tell theyd been here. I wouldnt want to do this more than a couple times a year but if it brings people to Carrabelle, its de nitely worthwhile. The cost of entering a car is $99 and $25 for passengers. Spectators paid a $10 admission fee. By LOIS SWOBODA By News Herald staff Javakiel Brigham led a balanced scoring attack with two rushing touchdowns and Hunter Jordan completed his two passes for scores to lead Blountstown to a 51-0 rout of Franklin County on Friday. Jordan tossed scoring strikes to Josh Taylor and Tripp Taylor to give the Tigers an early 21-0 lead. Brigham rushed for 45 yards and scored twice in the rst half to propel the Tigers to a 44-0 lead. Fabian Solomon added 41 yards and the games nal score in the fourth quarter. Alex Mayorga led Blountstown with 75 yards rushing and he added a second-quarter touchdown. Bobby Andrews also scored on the ground and the Tigers racked up 237 yards rushing. Blountstown dominated on defense, holding Franklin County to minus-63 total yards. Ladarius Rhodes was the lone Franklin County rusher with positive yardage, as he nished with 9 yards and the Seahawks longest gain of 7. Blountstown (5-3, 2-1 District 4-1A) hosts West Gadsden next week in its nal district game. Franklin County (2-6, 1-3) is off.

CLASSIFIEDSThursday, November 1, 2012 The Times | A19 By CAROLINE M.L. POTTERMonster Contributing Writer As soon as the calendar turns over to September, retailers will know how much help they will need to handle the holidays. The National Retail Federation predicts retailers will add 585,000 to 625,000 seasonal workers in 2012, which is comparable to the 607,500 seasonal employees hired last year. Recent consumer confidence readings have been relatively weak and unemployment remains stubbornly high,Ž John Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, said in a statement. The mixed picture is likely to compel retail employers to proceed cautiously when it comes to hiring extra workers for the holiday season. Look for many to start at last years levels and hire additional workers only if strong sales early in the season warrant it.Ž If you want to get a distinct advantage over other would-be seasonal workers, plan your job search carefully using these tips.Know where to lookThe best opportunities for seasonal job seekers will be at the large discounters, like Target and Wal-Mart, which will be heavily favored by cost-conscious consumers this holiday season,Ž Challenger said. But be prepared to look past retail sales jobs for other opportunities. The big-box stores need extra workers on the floor, but they also need extra workers in their shipping facilities and overnight stocking positions,Ž he said. Opportunities also exist outside of retail, in areas like catering and with shipping companies such as UPS and FedEx.ŽStart earlyEmployers already know how many people they will need, so start searching today. Even if a job does not begin for another month, its best to lock in an opportunity sooner rather than later.Dress the partWhen youre looking for any kind of job, show up dressed in business-casual attire, at the very least. Even if the seasonal work for which youre applying is outdoors (think Christmas trees), wear neat slacks, polished shoes and a collared shirt.Be prepared If you are stopping into an establishment to shop for seasonal work, be prepared to fill out an application and participate in an impromptu interview. Bring your own pen, necessary documentation to prove you can work in the U.S. legally, a resume if you have one and all contact information for your professional references. Be sure you block off enough time to meet with a few supervisors should the opportunity arise.Know what you wantIf you are applying for seasonal work, know precisely what you offer to a potential employee „ and what you want in return. Determine what hourly rate is acceptable to you, what hours and days you are available, if you have the wherewithal for a particular position (some might involve lifting heavy boxes or standing for the greater part of your shift), and if the location is viable in terms of fuel costs and transportation options. (Will you always have access to a reliable car or a convenient bus line?) You do not want to make a commitment only to leave an employer in the lurch during the hectic holidays.Be flexibleThe best way to make sure you stand out from other seasonal talent is to present yourself as flexible „ but only if you really are. A hiring manager revealed that demanding a specific schedule from prospective employers is a sure way to jettison your chances at landing a job. Instead, advised Challenger, Temporary workers must be prepared to be flexible, whether it is hours or type of work. Either can vary as the holiday season progresses.ŽBoost your chance of landing a seasonal job Featured Jobs SITE/UTILITY CONSTRUCTION COMPANY has immediate full time openings for experiencedHeavy Equipment Operators and Laborersfor South Franklin County area.

Minutes from St. George Island, Shadow Bay Dr. Listed by Michael Billings Best Values on the Forgotten Coast The Apalachicola Area Historical Societys annual Ghost Walk outdid itself Saturday night, as scores of visitors through Chestnut Cemetery helped bring in more then $1,500 for cemetery restoration. Its the largest crowd weve ever had, said Delores Roux, one of the walks founders and current coordinator. Together with her fellow organizer Susan Clementson, Roux helped lead tours together with Barbara Smith, Ella Bond, Delores Roux, Caty Greene and Donna McCoy. A bakers dozen of deceased residents of the cemetery came to life as the sun set and the spirits rose. At the front entrance, Fran Edwards, the societys treasurer, offered readings from her crystal ball as she sat dressed in a gypsys costume. Portraying characters were: Eric Springer as the alleged outlaw John Cole Younger John Inzetta as Apalachicola engineer George Core Melonie Inzetta as Philomena Allen, a milliner beset by an early tragedy, who wore black for the rest of her life as she devoted herself to the church.

As the ags go up along Hwy 98 and the fence starts going up around Battery Park, memories and excitement start to build. The Florida Seafood Festival is around the corner. I recently asked what the Florida Seafood Festival means to you. The response was overwhelming. People said that the Festival means old friends you havent seen in forever. It also means spending time with family and a big reunion. The recurring theme was that the festival is part of everyones lives. After 49 years it has spanned generations. Grandparents who attended in 1963 are now bringing their grandchildren. So I asked myself the same question and it was no surprise my answer was that the Seafood Festival brings together everything that is great in this community into one weekend. The memories come ooding back of years gone by that I sometimes forget, but when the rst cold snap hits and I can smell the seafood cooking, I feel the excitement of whats to come. Like everyone, I have memories that can be brought up just by the ags going up downtown. The Florida Seafood Festival has survived for 49 years. When most festivals zzle out after years for any number of reasons you might ask why the oldest Maritime Event in the state of Florida has kept going strong for all this time. Its simple. You, the Community. Those memories are our history, our heritage and every year more memories are made and there are more stories to tell. Another reason is the volunteers on the board of Directors. They plan the festival from January to November, giving up time from their families and friends. They do this for one reason: the love of this community and The Florida Seafood Festival. Ted Mosteller has served on that board for over 40 years; if thats not love nothing is. So as you see the ags going up along Highway 98 and the fence going around Battery Park and those memories come rushing back, remember those people behind the scenes that do it not for recognition or praise but because they love this community and the history of the Florida Seafood Festival. I want to take this opportunity to thank them and also encourage you to thank them. So to Tress Dameron, Jennifer Brown, Andrea Register, Ted Mosteller, Michael Shuler, Carl Whaley, Danny Gay, Kevin Ward, Pam Brownell, R.J. Shelley and Danielle Layne Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, none of these memories would be possible without you. We the board invite you to the 49th annual Florida Seafood Festival in Apalach icola on November 2nd and 3rd so you can make some memories of your own. Florida Seafood Festival President John C.

We expect it to be one of the best, said John Solomon, president of the nonpro t that oversees the affair. Its shaping up to be a very good one. Theres a lot of growth and interest this year in the festival. As proof of his assertion, Solomon cited Saturday evenings headline entertainment, country star Lee Brice, whose hit song Hard to Love has reached No. 1 on Billboards country chart. Two days before he steps on stage, Brice will be at the Country Music Awards, striding the red carpet with his ance as he waits to learn whether he will take home the honor of being selected Best New Artist of the Year. But more than even music, the festival is about the rich, and stressed, bounty from the sea that has made Franklin County renowned. Selected as King Retsyo this year is County Commissioner Smokey Parrish, and hell be escorting his queen, Franklin County High School senior Christina Collins, the student-athlete selected from among robust competition at an August pageant for the honor of Miss Florida Seafood. Collins, daughter of Cindy Collins and Johnny Collins, has plans to study mathematics at Florida State By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com Its going to be a busy weekend for Lee Brice, starting tonight with the Country Music Awards. Which is probably why he burnt off some steam last Thursday before his concert at Cains Ballroom, a classic cowboy club in Tulsa, Okla. He had dragged some mats in from his tour bus to do a little jiu-jitsu and boxing exercise. My stresses have to be prioritized, said Lee, a 33-year-old country singer-songwriter on course for a remarkable breakout year, playing more than 200 tour dates across the country, including an 8 p.m. concert Saturday night in Apalachicola to highlight the 49th annual Florida Seafood festival. I try to separate music from home, he said. Im always one to say I can get to the woods if I can nd time. Just being home, just getting home and being there for a few days, and being at the house, my stress kind of decompresses. Back home in Nashville, Lee has the chance to spend family time with his ance, Sara Reeveley, and their 4-year-old son, Takoda. I want him to have a stable thing at home; stability is a big thing for kids, Lee said. My little boy requires a lot, so when Im there, I have to be there. Luckily this thing doesnt happen overnight. Ive been able to slowly adjust to this, said Lee, whose second album Hard 2 Love was released in April and already has spawned the platinum hit A Woman Like You and the gold Hard To Love. Ive done a lot of things, been on the road for seven years, he Early voting strong as election nearsBy DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin County has echoed the voting patterns of the rest of Florida with a strong show of early voting. A queue of registered voters greeted Supervisor of Elections Ida Elliott on Saturday at the Apalachicola ofce as early voting began. A total of 289 voters cast their ballots that day, 150 in Apalachicola and 130 at the Carrabelle annex. On Sunday, the numbers declined to 76 in Apalachicola and 40 in Carrabelle, but they picked right back up on Monday, when 134 cast ballots in Apalachicola and 105 in Carrabelle. On Tuesday, 114 voted in Apalachicola and 61 in Carrabelle, bringing the total up through Tuesday afternoon to 818, 474 in Apalachicola and 344 in Carrabelle. Everythings running smoothly, Elliott said. Early voting runs through Saturday, Nov. 3, in Apalachicola and in Carrabelle, with the choice of president highlighting the ballot. Those who want to vote early can do so in Apalachicola or Carrabelle annex, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. today and Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Elliott said she doesnt expect Saturday to do much business in Apalachicola, with the parade lling up downtown sidewalks. Well be here, she said. I think everybodys going to have one thing on their mind, and thats the festival. Theres going to be a lot of traf c. They may do well in Carrabelle, I dont know. Elliott said she expects the county to see an 80 to 85 percent turnout, bettering the 79.3 percent turnout four years ago. The county has 7,451 registered voters, of these 4,986 Democrats, 1,753 Republicans and 712 either unaf liated or with other parties, according to the supervisor of elections website, By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com The Coast Guard is searching off the Carolinas for a former Apalachicola sea captain who was swept off the deck of a tall ship by Hurricane Sandy. Robin Walbridge, 63, is the captain of the 180-foot, threemasted schooner HMS Bounty, a replica built from the plans of the original 18th century wooden ship in Nova Scotia to use in lming Mutiny on the Bounty with Marlon Brando in 1962. It later also appeared in a version of Treasure Island and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest. The Bounty, which since has acted as a training vessel and museum, is owned by New York businessman Robert Hansen. According to a Facebook page for the ship, Walbridge was trying to skirt the outer edge of Hurricane Sandy to safe harbor in St. Petersburg. In a press conference Monday, Tracie Simonin, director of the HMS Bounty Organization, said the ship tried to stay clear of Sandys power. It was something that we and the captain of the ship were aware of, Simonin said. The vessel left Connecticut on Thursday with a crew of 11 men and ve women, ranging in age from 20 to 66. Everyone aboard knew the journey could be treacherous. This will be a tough voyage for Bounty, read a posting on the ships Facebook page showing satellite images of the storm. She began to sink at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, about 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras.

LocalA2 | The Times Thursday, November 1, 2012 (Pd.Pol.Ad.) By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com Editors note: This is the fourth in the series At Eternal Rest. On the moss-shrouded banks of the Ochlocknee River is a peaceful memorial park, slowly slipping out of memory. Cow Creek Cemetery is on private land, and though Florida law requires that close relatives be given access to family graves, this quiet retreat is not open to the public, even though it is still in use as an active burial site. Don and Pam Ashley, who live nearby, said they rst became aware of the graveyard when they purchased the old Bay City Lodge. It is uncertain how many souls rest in Cow Creek. A handful of stone markers, some very new, are visible, but Don Ashley said Amelia Rowell, former owner of Bay City, told him the eld once was crowded with cypress memorials, all of which have now disintegrated. What does remain is a single Woodmen of the World memorial in the form of a standing log, a stone marking the grave of a World War I veteran and what appears to be the faded headstone of a Confederate war veteran of the War Between the States amid a handful of low granite markers. Ashley said Rowell told him a German prisoner of war is buried here, who died while incarcerated at Camp Gordon Johnston, although no marker for that grave is in evidence. Hermann Blumhardt, who was a POW at the camp, told Linda Minichiello, director of the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum, that at least one German died here, victim of a murder. At the time, it was thought he might have been killed by another POW. Blumhardt said most soldiers were not members of the Nazi party, and when a Nazi was captured and imprisoned, he was not always welcomed by his countrymen. At the time of the death, there was an investigation, and all the POWs were punished, Blumhardt said, but the murderer never was identi ed. More than 2,500 Germans spent time at the camp. Because the U.S. adhered to the Geneva Convention, POWs at the camp received the same food and accommodations as the American GIs. Some made friends in the civilian community, and after the war, many remembered Carrabelle fondly and even dreamed of returning. Bay City Lodge was commandeered for the duration of the war as a club and conference center for highranking of cers at Camp Gordon Johnston. We will never know why he is buried at Cow Creek or if there was a memorial service. Nobody recalls and no record remains. Cow Creek Cemetery is next to the site of the old Langston Ferry dock that carried vehicles between Franklin and Wakulla counties. In an online article at www.CLJNews.com, Reddick Langston wrote that his grandfather, also Reddick Langston, moved to Wakulla in 1870. In 1876 or 1877, partners in both Franklin and Wakulla counties completed a road through the then virgin forest. Langston established two ferries, one at the present-day site on the Ochlocknee River bridge between Franklin and Wakulla counties and one farther north in Liberty County. A 5/8-inch steel cable was stretched across the river and secured on each side of the river bank. Two chains, attached to either end of the barge, were attached to steel rings, allowing the barge to be secure against the current of the river and at the same time to slide along the cable back and forth across the river. Power to move was provided by a long pole placed against the riverbed and pushed by hand. The Langstons lived on the east side of the Ochlocknee River, about a half-mile from the west river bank. In the early days, there were no regular scheduled trips. Travelers wishing to cross alerted them day or night by banging a metal rod hung at the ferry dock or blowing a cow horn or conch shell. Later, traf c was so heavy that two ferrymen manned the site during the day and one at night. The wreck of the last Langston Ferry still can be glimpsed from the Ochlocknee River bridge at low tide. In Wakulla, the traf c crossing the river included horse-drawn buggies and wagons and in later years, cars and trucks. The most unusual operation was the ferrying of a large circus across the river in 1926. This was also the main exit route for anyone from Franklin County seeking urgent medical help in Tallahassee or points farther north. Rowell told Ashley she believed the cemetery was founded to accommodate patients who didnt survive the journey. A true scary storyEditors note: This is the last in a series of articles dealing with local burial sites and published in the Times in October 2010 through 2012. We hope you have enjoyed them. In the Halloween spirit, we close the series with a ghost story written by Troy Williams Sr. and originally published in the Times on Oct. 31, 2002. An old man told me this story when I was a teenager back in the 60s. It seems there was a teacher who lived in Apalachicola in the 1800s. She lived in a cabin with her bedridden mother. One morning, she got up and dressed for work. She fed her dear mother and made sure she had water and enough food until she came home from teaching. She kissed her mother goodbye and left the cabin. She had to walk through a short stretch of woods. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and a cool breeze came from the bay. All of a sudden, she felt like she was being watched. She turned back to look, and there about 20 feet from her was her mother, oating about three feet off the ground, and she could see through her, then she vanished. The teacher, with her heart in her throat, turned and ran back to the cabin as fast as she could. When she got to the cabin, she threw open the door, ran to the foot of her mothers bed and yelled Mother! Mother! Her mother sat up, looked at her, smiled and said, I scared you didnt I? Then fell back dead. LOIS SWOBODA | The Times LOIS SWOBODA | The TimesAbove, according to Don Ashley, this open area was once lled with cypress markers now just a dim memory.

Thursday, November 1, 2012Special to the TimesFloridas tax collectors, local ofcers directly accountable to the public, have warned that a sweeping plan to change the way Floridas license tags are issued will create a host of unanticipated problems for drivers including delays, lack of accountability, higher costs to consumers and reduced customer service. At an Oct. 17 news conference, Floridas 67 tax collectors voiced concerns about proposals that would eliminate the states current system for fullling mail and online orders at the local level and urged the governor and cabinet to carefully review any proposal to privatize and centralize that function. In discussions with the tax collectors, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Executive Director Julie Jones has been responsive to these concerns and agreed to separate consideration of the distribution method from plans to redesign all vehicle tags. But the tax collectors want clearer assurances the state will not go to a privatized, centralized distribution system and offered recommendations that would make the current system more efcient and generate more savings than the proposed changes. The tax collectors are joined in their concerns by the states foremost consumer advocate and a coalition of organizations that fear the new system will fail to meet car purchasers and eet owners need for speedy issuance of vehicle tags. In addition, a new report by Capital Analytics, a policy research company headed by longtime government budget director David Coburn, nds that the plan to issue tags from a centralized location would not produce the savings projected by the state. Our issue is not with the change in the plates. Our concern is with the idea of scrapping a system that currently works well for the people of our counties and replacing it with a system that hurts customer service, costs drivers more money and provides no real benet to the people, said Leon County Tax Collector Doris Maloy, president of Florida Tax Collectors Inc. If the state plans to reissue every tag in Florida within two years, we are prepared to accomplish that with an emphasis on outstanding, local customer service. DHSMV recently announced plans to redesign Floridas license tags using a at plate technology, which it says will make the tags more readable by tollbooth and red light c ameras.  The department also has proposed turning production and distribution of many tags to a single private company, removing the tax collectors from their public service role distributing convenience tag renewals. Maloy said the proposal will cost consumers money in the 16 counties that currently add no service charge when fullling mail and Internet orders, since the private vendor would add the charge for all tags. In addition, she said, customer service would suffer dramatically if such an important process is stripped from responsive, local public ofcials and turned over to a private, for-prot vendor. Maloy said the tax collectors have enjoyed a long and cooperative relationship with DHSMV and trust the department to recognize that improvements to the existing system are preferable to eliminating a system that has served the public well. Walter Dartland, executive director of the Consumer Federation of the Southeast, said the effects on the consumer must be foremost in deciding on such a sweeping change. Dartland praised DHSMV and the tax collectors for working in partnership in recent years to make tag and license services more consumer-friendly. Sometimes the most important question to ask is not what a proposed change would save, but what it would cost consumers, Dartland s aid.  If taxpayers are losing time, local customer service and accountable oversight, thats a steep price with no real benet for consumers. Florida Tax Collectors Inc., the elected ofcials organization, commissioned Capital Analytics LLC to evaluate the effects of the DHSMV plan and under the leadership of Coburn, a former state budget director, it cited numerous instances of incorrect assumptions underlying the DHSMV proposal about revenues and the tax collectors ability to handle distribution of 15 million tags next year. The state has experienced a number of serious setbacks in implementing complex, statewide systems in recent years, the Capital Analytics report says. If there are serious problems with implementation or ongoing operation, the tax collectors will have already given up much of their capability to step in and deliver these services. A replacement vendor who can pick up immediately is unlikely to exist. Clearly, this scenario is not far-fetched. We see no indication that contingency planning has been considered at all by the department. Capital Analytics has noted annual savings, estimated b y DHSMV at  $123,000 per year, would be offset by some $400,000 in startup costs including development of bid requests, vendor selection and independent contract monitoring. Production of new tags will cost an estimated $31.4 million.Carrabelle market start slow but hopefulOn Saturday, Oct. 27, there was a slow, but hopeful, start to the Carrabelle Market. In the newly nished lot/pavilion at the corner of State Road 67 and Avenue B N.W., vendors came to sell without charge. Chase Gray brought several tables of inexpensive beautiful items. Penny L Anderson displayed her original watercolors and spread enthusiasm to young artists. Vicki Harris contributed a sample of the works from Shop by the Sea, normally opened weekends next to the Smallest Police Station. Even though I was hoping for locally grown produce sellers, I am pleased that this space is available and, for now, free of charge. Hopefully the big market (every Saturday) and in-between weekends (still open to vendors) will encourage local growers and entrepreneurs to get involved.Pamela BowneCarrabelleProt is ne, just not at communitys expenseThis is in response to Francis L. Giknis letter to the editor in the Oct. 18 Times paper regarding Tony Shivers comments (Jackels knowledge of real estate an asset, Page A4). First off, it is not about making a prot, but how the prot is made and the consequences involving the prot. There is not anything wrong with making a prot. But when the prot is made without regard to the consequences of compromising the landscape and the ecosystem while disregarding the will of the majority, then you have a problem. Lets take Panama City Beach as an example. Remember when there were amusement parks, momand-pop establishments, and everything was not a rat race? Look at it now: The big developers come in, and now all you have are high-rise condos up and down the beach. They thought they could build these condos and make a huge prot, but it didnt work because of the economy. I remember when you could ride along the road and actually see the beach; now you have to go to a special parking lot and walk down just to see the beach. We do not want that here in Franklin County, do we? This is what Tony Shiver is ghting against. Tony Shiver is here to preserve our history and protect our future. He is not adverse to progress, but his type of progress would benet this community in a way that our history is not destroyed. Franklin County is a place that people come to enjoy the peace, beautiful scenery, our wonderful seafood, quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. We do not need people to come to our county and tell us how to run our lives when they themselves are only here part-time and do not ever plan on living here permanently. Mr. Shivers referral to improvements were for additional services and businesses that would benet the community as a whole, not just a few. As to the comment about Mr. Shivers family making a prot, if you had researched the areas past, you would have found that Mr. and Mrs. Armistead helped put the very rst auction for the St. George Island Volunteer Fire Department in place. They were and are still big supporters of the chili cook-off that benets the St. George Island Volunteer Fire Department as well as the SGI First Responders. They also were very active in bringing the First Baptist Church to the island as well. All the businesses run by the Armistead family provide a valuable service to the island as well as the community, unlike condos that only benet the owners and a handful of paid employees. These same developments would push the current working class out of the area, eliminating not only the natural resources through dense population growth and contributed pollution, but a way of life for thousands.Roxanne ChristieThe ant and the grasshopper, retoldThe ant went about his business every day, out of necessity because there was no one else to do his work for him. He dug his tunnels, thoughtfully deciding where to place chambers for storing winter food as well as other chambers for living. He believed in individual responsibility, had no self-pity and as a result, created a good life for himself. The grasshopper watched how well the ant was living and not only became envious, but felt quite strongly something just was not right. There was too much difference between the meager comforts and limited quality of life, so he decided to call a press conference. NBC, ABC, CNN, NPR were all there to give their full support in telling this important story of economic injustice. The grasshopper gave a full account of his entitlement demands; the bureaucratic agencies must use their authority to make the ant share his wealth, as it was mostly ill-gotten anyway. Steadily the wheels of bureaucratic government turned. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae decided the ants housing must be shared with the grasshopper. EPA found the ant to be in noncompliance, therefore DOJ saw grounds to bring a federal lawsuit against the ant. The pressure was too much, The ant moved out, and the grasshopper moved into a much more comfortable lifestyle. However, it was just a matter of time before the lack of maintenance and upkeep caused the new housing to show serious deterioration and its new inhabitant was again becoming dissatised. How could this be? The changes so eagerly sought and generously promised just were not working out. Please, will the reader nish the story (Author unknown, but is one wise person.)Frank VenableEastpointAll students must be at grade levelEditors note: The following is a letter written last month by Floridas new commissioner of education to all of the states school superintendents. At its Oct. 9 meeting the State Board of Education adopted a strategic plan to guide the Florida Department of Educations work through 2012-18. In reviewing the current status of Floridas students, the data show that students in certain subgroups are achieving less than others. Our vision and mission is to ensure 100 percent of students achieve at or above grade level. The overall vision of the board, stated clearly in the plan, is that Florida have a world-class education system that engages and prepares all students to be globally competitive for college and careers. This means 100 percent of students scoring at or above grade level in the core subject areas. The approved plan includes one measure that breaks down student achievement goals by subgroup. The strategic targets established for the six-year period covered by the plan represent a more rapid rate of improvement in the percentage of students proficient in English language arts, science, and mathematics than has ever been experienced in any prior six-year period in the history of this state. For the first time, the plan specifically reports the current proficiency status of specific subgroups and establishes a minimum proficiency target for each of these subgroups over a six-year horizon. The board determined it was important to know how students are performing in each subgroup since they examined current data that shows an unacceptable student achievement gap. While the six-year target prociency levels are aggressive, they reect acknowledgement by the board that none of the demographic subgroups will achieve 100 percent prociency by the end of this period; however, the board continues to move forward each year with its strategic plan and the gap will be reduced until all subgroups are on grade level by 2022. The state board set higher expectations for the rate of growth in prociency levels for those subgroups with the lowest percentages of students currently performing at grade level. This is part of an intentional strategy to challenge our schools to eliminate the achievement gap among subgroups and will be reected in school accountability policies required by the board during this period. Contrary to some misunderstandings, this plan does not in any way set lower standards for any student or subgroup. It does, however, set expectations for moving those subgroups that are furthest behind toward 100 percent prociency at an accelerated pace. This is the only way to close the achievement gap and make sure all students can reach grade level prociency. While this is a heavy lift, we must not waiver in our commitment to move all students to perform on grade level and I ask for your help in reaching this goal.

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, November 1, 2012By JOAN MATEYSpecial to the Times An enchanting array of more than 1000 colorful lanterns transformed the Crooked River Lighthouse Park into a magical venue last weekend. The old maritime landmark celebrates its 1895 birthday at this event, with a lantern for every year of its age. The aerial view from the top of the tower was well worth the climb. Activities started off with three craft experts, presenting skills that would be very valuable to know if one was ever lost in the Florida wilderness. Ken Horne of Tallahassee displayed amazingly strong ropes and nets, patiently handtwisted from bear grass, palm bers, as well as animal skins and sinew. Sopchoppy thatcher Nelson Martin demonstrated the process of creating a woven palm roof for a shelter. Mary Bower of Satsuma wove wisteria into useful gathering baskets, as well as intricate vessels made from coiled pine needles. Two very talented musicians, Ralph Master Chief Peltier and Rick Ott set a happy tone for strolling around the park. Artistic shshaped lanterns that were created at the workshop on Friday were hung from the trees, and Two Als Restaurant served some tasty gumbo, jerked chicken and the best local burger around. The entertainment drew a good crowd of around 300 folks. The talented Tallahassee Community College Dance Company, which has fallen in love with Carrabelle, gave their second annual performance designed specically to cause everyone watching to say: Wow! Dressed totally in black and using brilliant spheres, rods and glowing gloves they created dancing arcs of vivid color with precision movement and fantastic music. Cant wait to see what theyll add to it next year! In keeping with the survivors theme, the original one-act play Last of the Lost was written by local actor Don Denig. This is his second play written for the lighthouses Wooden Ship Stage, an actual 70-foot long playground ship that adapts beautifully for play performances. Denig gave a convincing and compelling portrayal of the nal survivor of a shipwreck. The poor bloke slowly goes mad, has conversations with a rat, and is taunted by two illuminated ghosts played by Melanie Humble and Richard MacLean. Other talented community actors in the play were Will Morris and Jim Smith. As the nal scene of the play, the audience entered the dark and foreboding bilge of the ship, where a transparent spirit, caught in a spiral of the last moments of his life, reached out for help. Spooky... and a very clever illusion. The lighthouse staff and volunteers will continue to utilize our wonderful ship for future hauntings in the spirit of Halloween, but Lantern Fest will always maintain an air of delight and enchantment in recognition of the rst lighting of the tower over a century ago. The Carrabelle Lighthouse Association has been gradually acquiring equipment to enhance live performances and is seeking experienced writers, actors and directors to create nautical-themed productions. Themes about local maritime history are preferred, and childrens plays are also welcomed. Please call the lighthouse ofce at 697-2732 if you are interested in developing a show. And dont miss next years Lantern Fest! Check our website www. crookedriverlighthouse. org or like us on Facebook for a schedule of future programs and events. We will be showing more vintage maritime movies in the park again soon. We need volunteers for all our fun activities.

I grew up in Eastpoint, graduated from Carrabelle High School, lived in Apalachicola 8 years, and since 1990, Ive resided on St. George Island. I attended Lively Law Enforcement Academy and later Gulf Coast Community College while working for the Franklin County Sheriffs Department and later with the State of Florida Department of Corrections.

Amid 40 mph winds and 18-foot seas, Walbridge ordered his crew to abandon ship after an engine failed and the Bounty began to take on water faster than pumps could remove it. Crew members were out tted in bright red survival suits. Capt. Jerry Weber of Apalachicola said these suits mask human scent from predators, ght hypothermia and often contain EPIRB tracking beacons or a are. According to reports from the scene of the Coast Guard rescue, one crew member was spotted oating alone in the water because of a strobing beacon attached to his gear. Fourteen members of the crew successfully launched in lifeboats, but Walbridge and two female sailors were swept overboard by a wave. One woman managed to reach a lifeboat. The second woman, First Mate Claudene Christian, 42, was recovered from the water late Monday, but rescuers were unable to revive her. She has been called the rst North American casualty of Sandy. All 14 crew members initially evacuated were airlifted by the Coast Guard on Monday morning amid what one rescue swimmer described as 30-foot waves. Walbridge still is missing and the subject of an ongoing Coast Guard search. Kristen Anderson of Apalachicola knows Walbridge well. She said he came to Apalachicola in the early 1990s and taught a captains course here that she attended. He was a big boon to the community and helped a number of local captains become quali ed to take on charter passengers, she said. He was the captain who trained the captain of the USS Constitution, referring to the refurbished schooner originally launched in 1797 that is the oldest commissioned U.S. Navy vessel. She said he was also pivotal in the rescue and renovation of the Bounty. He was completely and totally devoted to the Bounty, Capt. Randy Mims said. It was by his efforts the ship stayed maintained. He was one of the best square rigger sailors left in the world, and that is a dying art. Anderson said he helped with the Governor Stone when it was based in Apalachicola. I spent one of the best days of my entire life with Robin on the Governor Stone. Two couples from St. George Island wanted to go to Little St. George. When they showed up on the dock, it was clear the women were not pleased with spending all day on the boat. Conditions were absolutely perfect. It was so beautiful, she said. The Stone heeled over a little bit and went to work like a good horse. Later, when we were out on the bay, one of the wives said to her husband, Why dont you get rid of that boat youve got and get something like this? Robin was a sailor, Anderson said. And if youre a sailor, when times up, thats the best way for a sailor to go. VOTING from page A1 SPECIAL TO THE TIMES HMS Bounty MISSING from page A1

University before returning to Franklin County to work in the family business. She had a bevy of appearances in recent days. Its such a great honor, she said. Its mostly like a way of life. Thats how locals look at it. Parrish said he was proud to stand besides Collins in their roles. I think shes going to be great representing the county. Shes very intelligent and speaks well. Shes going to present Franklin County and the industry well, representing our heritage and way of life. The seafood industry is the cradle in which Parrish was born 51 years ago in Pascagoula, Miss., while his dad was shing off the coast. Married to wife Angela, with three sons, Billy, 31, Smokey Jr., 27, and Dalyn, 15, and a granddaughter Keelee Bray, 3, Parrish now works for Ward and Sons Seafood, one of the countys oldest and most respected seafood processors. I got in on the processing end rather then the shing end, said Parrish, who shrimped with his dad on summer vacations beginning at age 7. After graduating from Apalachicola High School in 1979, Parrish attended Gulf Coast Community College for a while and then worked a year in construction before establishing a seafood industry career. He now is one of the countys most listened-to experts on the industry and how it can be helped during these turbulent years. I think its an honor to represent the seafood industry and try to promote the seafood industry with all the battles were facing, he said. With the state of the bay as it is, they wanted a strong spokesman to speak out for the seafood industry and who had a great amount of knowledge and how to address the problems were facing at this time. Were facing a lot of difcult regulations, he said, as he drove back from a meeting of the Florida Commission on Oil Spill Response Coordination. Basically were on a down cycle as far as freshwater we need, and with FDA regulations, theres a multitude of problems right now hitting the seafood industry from all different angles. Being a resilient people, we just have to push forward and try to bring seafood industry back to what it once was and bring economic revival back to our community, Parrish said. In addition to savoring fresh, locally caught seafood, festival goers will have a lot to enjoy, beginning Friday night when the festival is free. School is out, so the park opens at 10 a.m., with the festivities formally commencing with the 4 p.m. Blessing of the Fleet, when the king and queen will arrive via the water to smile on their constituencies. Speaking of constituencies, Solomon said Saturdays 10 a.m. parade through U.S. 98 in Apalachicola has a boatload of politicians in it, three days before the election. On Friday, its party time at the festivities, with lots of rides and amusements and music from 5-10:30 p.m. Therell be the usual tables of organizations, vendors and artists spread through Battery Park. Expect a surprise or two, like a huge wooden chair made by Don Lane and Bill Cox. Arts and crafts is completely stacked full again, Solomon said. We couldnt get another one in there if we tried. We have 25 nonprot groups in the park and 13 nonprots on food row. The festival continues at the crack of dawn Saturday, with a 7 a.m. registration for the Redsh Run on the front steps of the Gibson Inn. Runners take off on the 5K at 8 a.m. At 10 a.m. the gates open for the festival. It takes a $5 admission charge to get in, and that covers everything, including the 8 p.m. show by Brice. Kids under 12 are free. We dont allow glass bottles into the park, and no dogs, Solomon said. The county humane society is doing dog watching at the Bay Avenue gate for those who are interested. After what will be an enormous parade ends, the festival gets into full gear. From 1-5 p.m., theres Blue Crab races, at the top of each hour, for kids under 12. Winners get prizes; losers can search for a faster crustacean for next year. At 1 p.m. theres the oyster shucking contest, including Mike Martin, the Panama City shucker and returning champion, who last month won his third consecutive national championship in Maryland. At 1:15 p.m., your taste buds will be royally twisted by the Oyster Eating Contest, where contestants eat as many oysters as they can in the allotted time, or to their stomachs displeasure, whichever comes rst. Understandably, there is no entry fee. Music is all day on the main stage, beginning at noon with Ashley Carroll. At 2 p.m., entertainment continues with Living Waters Church, Eastpoint Church of God youth band, Highway 67 and Lisa Shaffer. At 11 p.m. the park closes. The way of life continues, indenitely.

Not only does it feel good, but it looks good, and tonight at the County Music Awards, Brice and Reeveley will radiate some of that hot look at his being nominated for Best New Artist, along with Hunter Hayes, Brantley Gilbert, Thompson Square and Love and Theft. I love it for Sara. She gets to get dolled up and I get to take her out. Its almost like a date, Brice said. Its a big deal for her to walk the red carpet. I like it enough, but Id rather be in a eld hunting. Im proud to be even nominated for that, Brice said. Brice and Sara are getting married in April, and then he wants more kids. We need to wait until we get married, and then as soon as we get married Lee said. Two big passions coursed through Brices own childhood: music and football. He learned to play the piano growing up in Sumter, S.C., and then was taught his rst guitar chords by his moms brother, Carlyle Lewis, known as Uncle Boy for being the only boy among all sisters. He taught me chords, and then from there I taught myself, Brice said. The burly baritone with gentle grey-blue eyes sang in church and wrote his own songs, including one in his sophomore year, Ive Grown to Love You, that won him a talent contest. I had my cowboy hat, two-tone, button-down, long sleeves on, and I won, and won every year after that, Brice said. He and his friends had a band The 12 Bridges, named for a road right down from the two-mile stretch where they were all from. They played locally, everything from Hank Williams Jr. to Aerosmith, half of them covers and half originals. That range of musical tastes is in keeping with Brices in uences, which he said encompass everything from gospel and country, especially Garth Brooks, to Eminem, Foo Fighters, Guns N Roses and Coldplay. Ive been in uenced by every genre there is, he said. On my next album, theres de nitely a lot more music I want to share. Brices journey to Nashville came after he indulged the other great love of his boyhood: football. The inside linebacker and offensive lineman on a 17-player team that won the lower state championship his junior year, Brice was pretty damn good at it, he said. Recruited to play for several Division I schools, Brice was invited to walk on at Clemson and played there for a year before an injury, and the lure of Nashville, sidelined the gridiron dream. I went and visited Nashville and knew immediately, he said. I thought Well, Ill move here for the summer. There was no turning back, and I never made it back to Clemson. Brice, however, is making it back on Saturday morning for the wedding of a longtime college buddy, a fellow engineering student at Clemson, who met his bride after one of Brices concerts.WEDDING SATURDAY MORNINGWere sitting at the bar after one of my shows, and ice starts getting thrown and we gure theyre throwing it at me. Come to nd out this beautiful bombshell is directly hitting Bert with this ice, Brice said. Now theyre getting married, and Ill play a song at the wedding. I promised him. Those vocals will be at the marriage of Bert Bagley and Jolene Weikel in Thomasville, Ga., that afternoon, and then Brice is hauling butt up to the show. He said he plans to savor some of Apalachicolas oysters and see how they compare to the ones he had at the Oyster Fest Block Party he played at Shaws Crab House in Chicago three weeks ago. I ordered all the oysters they had, Brice said. I really like them raw. Concertgoers can expect something special Saturday night, from a talented performer and songwriter whose Crazy Girl was named the most played song of 2011, who has written hits for Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw and more, and who holds Billboards record for the longest charting country song with Love Like Crazy, named the most played song of 2010. I have an unbelievable band. Theyve been with me for a long time, since the very beginning, Brice said. Thats kind of rare. I couldnt do this if I just hired guys to come out. I wouldnt have the same show, Brice said. Youll see the difference; theyre not hired guns to stand there. Were just working hard, and while the irons hot, I want to strike, Brice said. The irons hot for us, we have a song sitting at number one and its great for us. I want to push my shows as far as I can push it. BRICE from page A1

Youths younger than 16 years of age can now purchase their rst annual freshwater, saltwater or hunting license, which will remain valid until their 17th birthday, no matter how young they are when they buy it. All three types of licenses are $17. Youre never too young to start contributing to our great states hunting and shing heritage and protecting our wild habitats and resources, said Richard Corbett, a commissioner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. And this new ability to purchase a license creates a wonderful opportunity to do just that. Youths younger than 16 years of age will still have to complete the states hunter safety certi cation before taking advantage of this special license opportunity for hunting. The classes are free. Safety classes arent required for shing licenses. Another opportunity for youths is the $100 Gold Sportsmans license, which authorizes the holder to take game and freshwater or saltwater sh and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (craw sh) permit privileges. For every year that passes until a youth turns 17, the FWC will receive about $7 in matching federal funds, which will be used to preserve and manage the almost 6 million acres of the states public hunting, wildlife management area system and the states saltwater and freshwater sheries. Go to MyFWC.com/ HunterSafety to learn when to register a child for a hunter safety class. The new hunting and shing youth licenses can be purchased at all outlets that sell hunting and shing licenses, such as the of ce of Tax Collector Jimmy Harris. They also can be bought at MyFWC. com. The youth license became available at the same time the FWC launched its new Recreational License Issuance Services on Oct. 2. The license vendor is Brandt Information Services of Tallahassee.Genee Heinke, who you may know from Apalachicola Ace Hardware, took the day off Wednesday, Oct. 24, to go shing with her shing guide hubby David. This is one of nine red sh she caught shing out of Apalachicola.DAVID HEINKE Special to the TimesBy LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com A group of Franklin County high school students and its mentor are taking the problem of litter in hand, literally. Students against Plastic Pollution (SAPP) is on a mission. Science teacher Heidi Montgomery and her students are working to raise awareness about trash, especially in and around Apalachicola Bay. Since the beginning of the school year, Montgomery and about a dozen of her students have met twice a month to collect litter. Last term, they raised $1,400 to post a sign on the Eastpoint waterfront for three months reminding people that plastic pollution is a problem. On Friday, the sign came down and the group is once again seeking donations to post another billboard. Montgomery said she was disappointed they werent able to raise enough funds to save the rst sign, but it wasnt a very good location, she said. The Apalachicola Rotary Club and the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve each donated several hundred dollars for the rst sign. Montgomery said she is seeking funds again or suggestions for fundraisers. Other projects Montgomery would like to see funded include a bring your own bag incentive program at local grocery stores, installation of a ltered water bottle ller for the school so kids will have options other than disposable water bottles and the sale of metal water bottles and canvas shopping bags with the SAPP logo to raise funds. By the way, the organization doesnt have a logo yet and they are looking for an artist to design one pro bono. On Saturday, Montgomerys pollution police were cleaning up the beach adjacent to the Eastpoint shing pier. By far, the most common litter was plastic and glass beverage bottles. A single trash heap on the edge of the brush yielded 31 beer bottles. Some other common items discarded were diapers, rope, ice bags, plastic motor oil containers, cigarette butts, food containers of all kinds and snuff cans. Much of the litter had obviously oated ashore, perhaps discarded by boats on the bay. Middle school science teacher Stacey DeVaughn joined Montgomerys group in the clean up this week. Her sons Stefan and Walker are members of SAPP. Please tell people not to throw things out of their boats, DeVaughn said, Bag your trash and take it ashore. The environmentalists braved a grey and breezy afternoon and some very smelly trash items to do their good work. Its terrible that theres so much trash, said Montgomery. Its so beautiful and it could be so much more beautiful. Who wants to eat seafood from a town that has trash everywhere? Several students wondered aloud if tougher enforcement of litter laws and warning signs would stem the seemingly endless ow of garbage. More unusual items discovered were a shing lure, a broken shing pole, a disassembled shoe and one of the rubber pep bracelets distributed by the Franklin County School this fall. The students took the trouble to sort and recycle much of the trash. In addition to a good feeling, they get community service time for the hours they spend collecting trash. That helps with college admissions and scholarship applications, said senior Stephan DeVaugn. He said membership in the National Honor Society requires a minimum of 18 hours of community service per semester.

MLS #247359..............$289,000 N EW C ON S TRUCTION N EW C ON S TRUCTION On Saturday, Blake Hutchinson returned to Carrabelle to stage the third annual Festival of Speed. He now also stages speed events in Clayton, Ga. Hutchinson said this was the best ever for the Carrabelle venue. Sixty drivers registered to race and 50 came to the meet. The weather was, for the rst time, drop-dead gorgeous. The only hitch in the days competition was a brief interlude when a spotted hound chased a deer onto the runway of Thompson Field, where the speed trials take place. Saturday was also the rst day of deer dog training for local hunters. Airport Manager Mark Nobles pursued the pair but they hastily adjourned on their own into the scrub to the west of the runway. We dont want a car to make contact with a dog at these speeds, said Nobles. The record for Saturday, 169 mph set by Peter Nakhla, was less than the previous Carrabelle record set in 2011, 175 mph. Still it was nothing to sneer at. Hutchinson said the half-mile runway give racers a unique opportunity to safely open it up and test their vehicles. On his wannaGOFAST website, Hutchinson wrote that his event was founded in order to ll a niche in the motorsports market place. Our goal was to create a safe and controlled environment for fellow car enthusiasts to pursue their Need for Speed without the restrictions of the standard one-eighth or one-quarter mile drag strip. Weve taken a retro approach to what Americana used to be and fast forwarded it into modern day times with an ef cient and unique event platform. There are safety requirements for participants. They must wear closed toed shoes and long pants as well as a helmet certi ed by the Snell Memorial Foundation, or the U.S. Department of Transportation. Each vehicle must also pass a prerace inspection. Local businesses get a boost from the one day event. I noticed quite a few of the (race) cars in the lot of the Franklin Hotel last night, Nobles said. The race generates business for local fuel stations and restaurants as well bringing more than 40 drivers with friends and family to the county. There were about 40 people on hand to observe Saturdays race, scattered on the grassy strip that runs next to the runway. Stooping to pick up a water bottle, Nobles said, I have to admit, every time theyve come, they cleaned up after themselves so you couldnt even tell theyd been here. I wouldnt want to do this more than a couple times a year but if it brings people to Carrabelle, its de nitely worthwhile. The cost of entering a car is $99 and $25 for passengers. Spectators paid a $10 admission fee. By LOIS SWOBODABy News Herald staffJavakiel Brigham led a balanced scoring attack with two rushing touchdowns and Hunter Jordan completed his two passes for scores to lead Blountstown to a 51-0 rout of Franklin County on Friday.

CLASSIFIEDSThursday, November 1, 2012 The Times | A19 By CAROLINE M.L. POTTERMonster Contributing Writer As soon as the calendar turns over to September, retailers will know how much help they will need to handle the holidays. The National Retail Federation predicts retailers will add 585,000 to 625,000 seasonal workers in 2012, which is comparable to the 607,500 seasonal employees hired last year. Recent consumer confidence readings have been relatively weak and unemployment remains stubbornly high, John Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, said in a statement. The mixed picture is likely to compel retail employers to proceed cautiously when it comes to hiring extra workers for the holiday season. Look for many to start at last years levels and hire additional workers only if strong sales early in the season warrant it. If you want to get a distinct advantage over other would-be seasonal workers, plan your job search carefully using these tips.Know where to lookThe best opportunities for seasonal job seekers will be at the large discounters, like Target and Wal-Mart, which will be heavily favored by cost-conscious consumers this holiday season, Challenger said. But be prepared to look past retail sales jobs for other opportunities. The big-box stores need extra workers on the floor, but they also need extra workers in their shipping facilities and overnight stocking positions, he said. Opportunities also exist outside of retail, in areas like catering and with shipping companies such as UPS and FedEx.Start earlyEmployers already know how many people they will need, so start searching today. Even if a job does not begin for another month, its best to lock in an opportunity sooner rather than later.Dress the partWhen youre looking for any kind of job, show up dressed in business-casual attire, at the very least. Even if the seasonal work for which youre applying is outdoors (think Christmas trees), wear neat slacks, polished shoes and a collared shirt.Be prepared If you are stopping into an establishment to shop for seasonal work, be prepared to fill out an application and participate in an impromptu interview. Bring your own pen, necessary documentation to prove you can work in the U.S. legally, a resume if you have one and all contact information for your professional references. Be sure you block off enough time to meet with a few supervisors should the opportunity arise.Know what you wantIf you are applying for seasonal work, know precisely what you offer to a potential employee and what you want in return. Determine what hourly rate is acceptable to you, what hours and days you are available, if you have the wherewithal for a particular position (some might involve lifting heavy boxes or standing for the greater part of your shift), and if the location is viable in terms of fuel costs and transportation options. (Will you always have access to a reliable car or a convenient bus line?) You do not want to make a commitment only to leave an employer in the lurch during the hectic holidays.Be flexibleThe best way to make sure you stand out from other seasonal talent is to present yourself as flexible but only if you really are. A hiring manager revealed that demanding a specific schedule from prospective employers is a sure way to jettison your chances at landing a job. Instead, advised Challenger, Temporary workers must be prepared to be flexible, whether it is hours or type of work. Either can vary as the holiday season progresses.Boost your chance of landing a seasonal job Featured Jobs SITE/UTILITY CONSTRUCTION COMPANY has immediate full time openings for experiencedHeavy Equipment Operators and Laborersfor South Franklin County area.

Minutes from St. George Island, Shadow Bay Dr. Listed by Michael Billings Best Values on the Forgotten Coast The Apalachicola Area Historical Societys annual Ghost Walk outdid itself Saturday night, as scores of visitors through Chestnut Cemetery helped bring in more then $1,500 for cemetery restoration. Its the largest crowd weve ever had, said Delores Roux, one of the walks founders and current coordinator. Together with her fellow organizer Susan Clementson, Roux helped lead tours together with Barbara Smith, Ella Bond, Delores Roux, Caty Greene and Donna McCoy. A bakers dozen of deceased residents of the cemetery came to life as the sun set and the spirits rose. At the front entrance, Fran Edwards, the societys treasurer, offered readings from her crystal ball as she sat dressed in a gypsys costume. Portraying characters were: Eric Springer as the alleged outlaw John Cole Younger John Inzetta as Apalachicola engineer George Core Melonie Inzetta as Philomena Allen, a milliner beset by an early tragedy, who wore black for the rest of her life as she devoted herself to the church.

As the ags go up along Hwy 98 and the fence starts going up around Battery Park, memories and excitement start to build. The Florida Seafood Festival is around the corner. I recently asked what the Florida Seafood Festival means to you. The response was overwhelming. People said that the Festival means old friends you havent seen in forever. It also means spending time with family and a big reunion. The recurring theme was that the festival is part of everyones lives. After 49 years it has spanned generations. Grandparents who attended in 1963 are now bringing their grandchildren. So I asked myself the same question and it was no surprise my answer was that the Seafood Festival brings together everything that is great in this communityinto one weekend. The memories come ooding back of years gone by that I sometimes forget, but when the rst cold snap hits and I can smell the seafood cooking, I feel the excitement of whats to come. Like everyone, I have memories that can be brought up just by the ags going up downtown. The Florida Seafood Festival has survived for 49 years. When most festivals zzle out after years for any number of reasons you might ask why the oldest Maritime Event in the state of Florida has kept going strong for all this time. Its simple. You, the Community. Those memories are our history, our heritage and every year more memories are made and there are more stories to tell. Another reason is the volunteers on the board of Directors. They plan the festival from January to November, giving up time from their families and friends. They do this for one reason: the love of this community and The Florida Seafood Festival. Ted Mosteller has served on that board for over 40 years; if thats not love nothing is. So as you see the ags going up along Highway 98 and the fence going around Battery Park and those memories come rushing back, remember those people behind the scenes that do it not for recognition or praise but because they love this community and the history of the Florida Seafood Festival. I want to take this opportunity to thank them and also encourage you to thank them. So to Tress Dameron, Jennifer Brown, Andrea Register, Ted Mosteller, Michael Shuler, Carl Whaley, Danny Gay, Kevin Ward, Pam Brownell, R.J. Shelley and DanielleLayne Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, none of these memories would be possible without you. We the board invite you to the 49th annual Florida Seafood Festival in Apalachicola on November 2nd and 3rd so you can make some memories of your own. Florida Seafood Festival President John C. Solomon 49th Annual Florida Seafood FestivalApalachicola, Fl2012
