By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In a county where Democrats outnumber Republicans almost three to one, voters made it known Tuesday that they lean sharply to the red state side of the ballot box. In addition to giving Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney 65 percent of the vote (one percentage point better than John McCain did four years ago), Franklin County voters split almost exactly evenly between incumbent U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, the eventual victor, and his Republican challenger Connie Mack, with both getting 48.7 percent of the vote. Just one vote separated their total among Franklin County voters, with Nelson taking 2,616 and Mack 2,615. In Congressional District 2, incumbent Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, won almost 59 percent support among county voters, more than ve percentage points than he did overall, as he fended off a stiff challenge from Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee. In the race for County Commission District 1, which encompasses Eastpoint and St. George Island, incumbent Pinki Jackel, who four years ago became the rst Republican in modern times to win a county commission seat, easily outdistanced her Democratic challenger Tony Shiver to secure a second term. In District 5, which includes portions of Eastpoint east into Carrabelle, Democrat William Massey swamped by a better than three-to-one margin his opponent, Hank Garrett, 48, who ran without party af liation.

We got lucky when we booked Lee Brice, said Florida Seafood Festival Director President John Solomon. A year ago, when the festival directors chose Brice for this years Saturday night concert, he was a rising star. Since then, he has skyrocketed into fame. Brices highest charting single is A Woman Like You, which reached No. 1 in April. Love Like Crazy was Billboards Top Country Song of 2010, spending 56 weeks on the Hot By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com From the opening of the gates on Friday morning to the much anticipated concert on Saturday night, the 49th annual Florida Seafood Festival came off without a hitch, and lots of folks are calling it the best ever. The weather was perfect, with temperatures rising to 80 degrees during the day, clear blue skies and a light breeze. More than a dozen boats came for the Blessing of the Fleet on Friday afternoon. As about 100 onlookers watched from shore, Miss Florida Seafood Christina Collins and King Retsyo Smokey Parrish arrived aboard the Buddys Boys shrimp boat. The eclectic collection of vessels included the shrimp boat Freedom that continued on to work afterward; Floridays, a sailboat; sport shing boats Stray Dog and Trash Can; and Captain Gills charter houseboat the Lily.

In addition to title track Hard 2 Love his second album produced the platinum hit A Woman Like You. But theres more to Brice than talent and bad boy good looks. Hes a nice guy. Brice might look like a pro football player, but beneath that rugged exterior is the heart of a teddy bear. Traveling from a friends wedding in Thomasville, Ga., he was a little late on Saturday night. Nobody minded with songbird Lisa Shaffer from Nashville on the stage. The beautiful and talented songstress continued to perform without complaint. When the star arrived about 30 minutes late, a group of fans lucky enough to obtain admission passes to the Bud Light Meet and Greet were anxiously huddled outside the gate, waiting to shake his hand or ask for an autograph. Barely breaking stride, Brice popped into his tour bus to get his bearings and in less than ve minutes was back outside, ready to make new friends. The plan had been to allow only pass holders into the backstage area, but Solomon said when Brice saw most were accompanied by family members or friends, he asked his security and seafood festival staff to allow everyone inside. Perhaps 100 people lined up to speak to him, and he had a genuine word and a warm smile for each of them. He autographed items ranging from T-shirts, both occupied and unoccupied, to cellphones, arms, sneakers and hats. He took time to speak to everyone in line and made sure each fan was photographed with him. The concert was well worth the short wait. Brice gave a dazzling performance to the happy and excited crowd. Girls blew him kisses, held their hearts and some even cried. He was toasted again and again, and kept the crowd on its feet and dancing for more than an hour. After the concert, he took time to speak to several people waiting backstage. One youngster said she loved to play the drums, and Brice dispatched one of his staffers to fetch a drumstick which he then autographed and presented to her as a token of his encouragement to pursue her musical dreams. He then invited members of the festival board to join him in his bus, where they watched the Alabama/LSU football game and talked about music, football, fairs and shing. Brice asked Solomon if he would join him on a shing trip on Sunday. Solomon said his festival duties wouldnt allow him to take the day off, but his staff overruled him. Solomon and Brice spent Sunday afternoon on the bay. Ive been doing this for ve years now, Solomon said. Ive been around a lot of stars, but there has been nobody as polite and as giving as this guy here. To see a gallery of the Lee Brice concert, visit www.ApalachTimes.com. jumped in their wake. The Rev. Themo Patriotis of the United Methodist Cooperative Parish, the Rev. Martha Harris of Trinity Episcopal Church, the Rev. Craig Hicks of Living Water Assembly of God, the Rev. Barry Hand of the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Dr. John Sink and Sister Jeanne Drea of St. Patrick Catholic Church of ciated at the blessing. Micah Patriotis acted as crossbearer, and Chris Clark performed on bagpipe. The king and queen walked with their entourage to the heart of the festival, where the royal couple was welcomed by Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson, who praised the seafood workers and maritime trades as the foundation of the county economy. Festival President John Solomon said based on ticket sales, just fewer than 30,000 people attended the festival, slightly less than last year, but sales were brisk in the food court. Many of the food booths run by local not-for-pro ts sold out before the gates closed Saturday night. Solomon said over the last three years, there has been an increase in participation by local food vendors. This year, eight of the food booths were occupied by a not-for-pro ts, up two from last year. We ask each local vendor to specialize in just one or two food items, Solomon said. This year, Franklin County cooks prepared and sold gumbo, fried mullet, oysters, fried Oreos, low country boil from an heirloom recipe and more. The number of arts and crafts booths was up slightly from last year, and most vendors reported good sales. The annual Friday night Oyster Roast fundraiser for the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce was a sellout with more than 200 in attendance. The Apalachicola Bay oysters served there and at the festival were exceptionally fat and salty. Some of the competitors in the oyster eating contest on Saturday thought they were a little too fat and complained they were larger than usual. The winner of the mens division of this years contest, newcomer Lee Postiere, managed to down 20 dozen (240). Second place went to Warren Melzer, who ate 150 oysters, and third place to Jerome Brown, who downed 145. In the womens division, Angie Harnage took the honors for the second consecutive year, consuming seven dozen. Last year, she ate 10 dozen. With six dozen under her belt, Ashley Goins came in second, followed by Andria Price, who consumed ve dozen. In a surprise upset, Rick McCurley, sponsored by Dustys Oyster Bar in Panama City Beach, took rst place in the oyster shucking contest. Last years champ and reigning national champ Mike Martin was rst to nish but came in second based on points for presentation. Brandon Patrick was No. 3. T.J. Ward said he and the other oyster judges, Lynn Griner and Dan Davis consider whether the oysters are completely detached from the shell, if blood or trash is present and whether the oysters are broken. The shucker with the best score for presentation receives a 10-second bonus. The judges take their job very seriously and treat it with the dignity deserved, said Michael Shuler, the festival director who oversees the shucking competition. The outcome has a major effect on prestige if not nances. McCurley, runner up in the 2012 National Oyster Shucking Contest in Leonardtown, Md., has not competed in Apalachicola for six years. As winner, he will receive a $500 check to help pay his way to the national competition in 2013. Second place receives $100 and third place $50. Pam Brownell organized this years Saturday morning parade. She said some changes were made, such as not having beauty queens showcased seated on the hood of a car. For safetys sake, everyone was either in a vehicle or on a oat. A number of boats were called into service to ferry lovelies, including the Franklin Needs Calendar Girls, along the parade route. This gave the parade even more of a nautical avor. More than 60 entries were displayed. Brownell said she received entries and cancellations up to the last minute. The Seahawks marching band gave an outstanding performance, looking smart in their black and silver uniforms. Also new this year was a pre-parade lineup, which did not stage on 12th Street and thus did not block access to Weems Memorial Hospital. The weekend culminated with a concert by celebrated country artist Lee Brice, who arrived a little late but gave a performance well worth the wait.

Henry Kozlowsky and Liz Sisung play Norma and Howard Karchmer, a middle-aged couple who have been married for 20some years, raised their daughter, and now face the uncertainty of the rest of their lives. Kozlowsky lends his sarcastic wit to Howard, who prefers to daydream about spies on far-off mountaintops rather than focus on his daily life as a tailor in New Jersey. Tired of his reveries, Norma asks friend Dorothy Arn eld, portrayed by Bronx-born and former New Jersey resident Judy Loftus, to tempt Howard in an effort to shake up his fantasies. The widow Dorothy has an admirer of her own, Sydney Hersch, played by Apalachicola resident Bob Inguagiato. Further complicating this love quadrangle, Howard and Normas grown daughter Louise, local sheries biologist Katie Maxwell, nally brings her new boyfriend Freddy home to meet the parents only to nd them in turmoil. Timid Freddy, depicted by Caf con Leches Frederic Kahler, is taken aback by the Karchmers antics, and Louise is not pleased. With Jersey accents and attitudes ying left and right, this comedy will have you rolling in your seat and leaving the theatre with a smile on your face. Coming Back to Jersey will appear at two venues in Franklin County. On Nov. 9-11 see the show at the beautiful historic Dixie Theatre in downtown Apalachicola.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times Thursday, November 8, 2012 By LINDA HE LL IESEN-GRAY Special to the Times We had always heard about my husbands family history, family stories, where his parents were from, what his parents parents and their ancestors did for a living but the reality has been an exciting adventure into ancestor land. We walked in their footsteps, looked at their homes, went into the church where they worshiped, probably ate where they dined, and touched their graves. On a recent trip to Apalachicola, armed with some information gleaned from family stories, history and the internet, we traced the footsteps of his greatgrandfather, George Henry Whiteside and his brothers. His mothers parents, William Peter Brunson and Mattie Kilby (Whiteside) Brunson passed away when Cordelia Noelle Brunson (Gray), Mom was rather young. After her parents passed, Mom was sent to Atlanta to live with her Aunt Anna Wallace (Whiteside) Nichols. Mom later attended a teachers college in Athens, Ga., married Frank H. Gray and had six children and traveled as a Army wife. She told stories of her younger years as a girl growing up in Apalachicola, her loving family, her innocence and privilege. Our rst stop was the municipal library where we found a wealth of information and photos. For the rst time we saw a photo of my husbands grandmother, Mattie Kilby Whiteside Brunson and Mrs. W. H. Whiteside, who were members of the Philaco Womans Club. Looking into the eyes of his ancestor grandmother, tears welled in my husbands eyes. No, we had never met her and dont even know what she was like but she contributed to his gene pool and later, to our sons gene pool. We were extremely fortunate to speak with the knowledgeable librarian who said the historical librarian would be there the next day. We left our telephone number and the place where we would be staying. We drove by the ancestral home to see what it looked like. We then headed for the cemetery to see if we could nd the nal resting places. The Chestnut Cemetery for some reason didnt t; it did not feel right. The ages of the stones appeared correct, but we just didnt think we were in the right area. We then went to the Magnolia Cemetery. We were told by the librarian that the Magnolia Cemetery had been relocated after the original resting site was ooded. We spent hours looking for a gravesite, which we knew was somewhere because we had a web picture of it. Where could we nd the grave markers and other information? We went to lunch, probably drove the same area where our ancestors walked, sat and ate. We enjoyed the abundance of oysters and shrimp, something else his ancestors would have eaten. As we talked, we devised a research plan; we needed a telephone book to locate additional information. We needed to locate the courthouse, hopefully to obtain more information. So, we returned to the hotel where I would make some calls. Luckily there was an old fashioned printed telephone book in the room. First, we contacted the courthouse to determine if there was a lot and plot number for the cemetery. Would a funeral home have this information? The lady we spoke with was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, but we would have to call back the next day. At this point, the ancestors hit me in the head! I dont know why I didnt think about this earlier. On the photograph of the markers from the internet there was a name of the photographer. Ding, ding, ding, ding! We found the photographers name, looked her up in the traditional phone book and learned she is a reporter for the Apalachicola Times. We then phoned and made initial contact with Lois Swoboda. Ms. Swoboda was gracious and extremely helpful, taking her personal time. She met us at the cemetery to show us the grave site, initially having trouble nding it herself. Trees and sometimes surrounding landmarks change, but after about 30 minutesvoila! At the same area we walked past at least 20 times the day before, the markers they were, as huge as day. She found the markers of the Whitesides and the Brunsons. Hurrah! The grave sites were located and in relatively good shape. My husband lovingly cleaned the markers which had not been visited in years. A marker indicated that George Henry Whiteside had enlisted in 1861 at age 17, in the CSA (Confederate States of America). Additional research conrmed he was later sent to the Confederate Naval Yard in Columbus, Georgia, to be with his brothers, Captain Samuel Judd Whiteside and their younger brother, Thomas J. Whiteside, who was 12 at the time of the beginning of the Civil War. Ms. Swoboda gave us useful and accurate information to help with our research, for which we were thankful. She took us by the original family house located on Sixth Street. This Whiteside house was occupied by the family prior to moving to the second house, located on D Street, which is where Mom lived as a child. The second house was the one we found listed on the internet as the Whiteside house, looked vacant. We would have loved to have been able to enter this house to feel the presence of my husbands mother and her family. If those walls could talk, what would they say, what history would they tell? The next day, we went back to the library where we learned more information. We were provided with les and books to look through. This historical librarian had a long history in Apalachicola, lled in the blanks with information and sending us in the right direction. We already knew that the Whitesides were well known, respected, had an ice house, and went to Trinity Episcopal Church and where they lived. We visited Trinity, which was open. There was an awe in the feeling of those who entered those doors before us. We reected about the times the Whiteside and Brunson families gathered, worshiped, probably walking around the same pews where they sat for Sunday service. We then visited the John Gorrie Museum State Park. Dr. Gorrie, a friend of George and Samuel Whiteside, was the Florida physician and inventor who developed a mechanical refrigeration and ice making. Through research, Gorrie proved that malaria was carried by mosquitoes, observing that patients did better when it was cooler, which in turn, lead him to gure out a way to cool the rooms. The museum was informative. After viewing the museum, I am of the rm belief that the United States should have a Dr. Gorrie Appreciation Day and I thank Dr. Gorrie every time I walk into my cool house or have a ice cube to cool my drink. However, unfortunately, he never saw his invention in full use. After Dr. Gorrie died, Samuel Whiteside went to Savannah, Ga. to open the Gorrie Ice House, while George W. Whiteside, with investors, opened the Ice and Canning Company on Water Street in Apalachicola. But, where was the Whiteside Ice and Canning Company ice house located? We were referred to Deloress Sweet Shoppe restaurant where we met another long-time resident and local historian, Delores Roux. She was able to tell us where the ice house once stood. She said that the ice house caught re, leaving only one wall in place. Armed with the correct location and knowing where the wall still stood, we were able to locate the area and take some photos in our ancestors footsteps. She said that she knew Frank Whiteside and we learned a little more about what Frank was like and the Whiteside family. We now had names and dates, but who were these ancestors? What were they like? We will have to do further research to determine where the piece of the puzzle ts. It was time to leave our adventure into ancestral land. We learned as much as we could in two short days. We met wonderful, helpful people who went out of their way to help us with information. We purchased books and T-shirts. Armed with names and dates, we would now continue our research with books and on line. Names, birth dates and death dates are always nice but family stories are even better. Who were the people behind the names? As we drove out of town, we saw the KOA Campground at Eastpoint, once owned by Frank and Faith Whiteside. The sign was barely standing, once proudly announcing visitors welcome. We would have loved to have stayed and chat awhile, to walk the same path, but time was short and we will have to visit again. Now, armed with additional information and books, we are learning about where the Whitesides began and when the name died. Yes, every beginning has an end. With the help of historians, our son will have written information to tell his children about the Whiteside/Brunson long history, ghting in the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, what they stood for, and what they fought for. We will return one day, hopefully soon, to once again enjoy fresh sh, shrimp and oysters. In the meantime, we will research and collect more family information, photographs, history and stories from where our ancestors walked in Apalachicola. Months later, research continues as we search genealogy sites. The family tree grows with each new name and date we nd through additional research. We have learned of more books written about the history of the areas which include ancestor names. A recent book, Apalachicola Ice was written by Faith Whiteside Bingham, wife of Frank Whiteside. Mrs. Bingham passed away, and her daughter, Robin Ingram, completed the project and had it published in August 2012. The book can be purchased at the local bookstore, Downtown Books. Once again, we sincerely thank each and every person who took the time to help us along the way. to walk in the footsteps of my husbands ancestors.In the footsteps of my husbands ancestors November is National Hospice Month. Its no surprise that this is also the month that we commemorate veterans and family caregivers. Along with hospice workers, these groups serve others, being there for those who count on us to keep them comfortable, safe and protected. Big Bend Hospice is proud to have partnered with the Tallahassee VA Outpatient Clinic to remember and honor our veterans during a Service of Remembrance held Nov. 13. Each time a veteran passes away, it leaves a hole in our hearts and in our societys collective memory. Likewise, family caregivers are seless individuals who give of themselves, sometimes putting their own lives on hold, to care for an ill or dying loved one. They are unsung heroes. At Big Bend Hospice we see rsthand the courage and love that goes into being a caregiver 24/7 and we continually look for ways to provide support to hospice family caregivers and ease their load and renew their spirit. When patients put their trust in Big Bend Hospice, our staff considers it a sacred obligation to live up to that trust. We exist to provide the highest quality of care to people facing a life-limiting illness. We offer compassionate support and comfort to both the patient and their family. In 2013 Big Bend Hospice will celebrate 30 years of serving this community. With your assistance, we will continue to help every patient have the opportunity to make the most of each day of life. Please join me during November and salute all of these groups as they do the work that has to be done, which sometimes requires incredible sacrice. We are a better community because we can come together in support of each other. I encourage everyone to join me in thanking these dedicated individuals for the work they do. Cathy Atkison President and CEO Staff sees hospice as sacred obligation LINDA HELLIESEN-GRAY | Special to the Times We walked in their footsteps, looked at their homes, went into the church where they worshiped, probably ate where they dined, and touched their graves.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, November 8, 2012 Beshears, the Republican candidate, won the same percentage of county voters, about 60 percent, as he did throughout the sprawling district to top Liberty County Clerk of Court Robert Hill, a Democrat. In Florida Senate District 3, incumbent Democrat Bill Montford secured 60 percent of support among county voters, about 12 percentage points lower than his overall total, as he was victorious over Republican John Shaw. In the race for state attorney in the 2nd Judicial Circuit, Republican challenger Pete Williams secured 57 percent support among county voters, eight percentage points better than he did overall, but it wasnt enough to eke out a win against incumbent Democrat Willie Meggs, who was returned to of ce with 51 percent of the vote. In the nonpartisan race for circuit judge of the 2nd Judicial Circuit, Barbara Hobbs secured about 52 percent support among county voters and went on to a win over incumbent Jose na Tamayo. Franklin County voters views of the 11 amendments to the Florida Constitution that were on the ballot were the same as Florida voters overall. More than 60 percent of voters, the threshold needed for approval, said yes to Amendments 2, 9 and 11, with the other eight amendments all going down to defeat. Passed were the Disabled Vet Homestead Discount, which expands homestead exemption to veterans who were not Florida residents when they entered military service; the Military Spouse Tax Exemption, which gives homestead tax relief to surviving spouses of veterans and rst responders killed in the line of duty; and Additional Homestead Exemption, which will grant full homestead property tax relief to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for at least 25 years. Of the three members of the Florida Supreme Court, and four from the District 1 Court of Appeals, who were on the ballot, county voters gave a majority vote of approval to each of them, as did Florida voters overall. Big turnout, smooth counting Tuesdays election at the countys eight precincts ran about as well as an election can be conducted, prompting County Judge Van Russell, to remark at the elections of ce Tuesday night that it was the smoothest he had seen in his 24 years on the canvassing board. Supervisor of Elections Ida Elliott, who was overseeing her rst presidential election, had absentee and early voting results to state elections of cials by 7:05 p.m., ve minutes after the polls closed. Twenty minutes later, the entire results of all but 17 provisional ballots were submitted to the state. By 8:30 p.m., with all their pressing work nished, the threeperson canvassing board, Elliott, Russell and County Commissioner Cheryl Sanders, together with deputy elections staffers Heather Riley and Carrie Johnson, had determined that 12 of the provisional ballots should be counted, and the election tally was completed. I cant believe how fast all those ballots got here, Elliott said, praising the work of her 50-person crew of poll workers. She said she was disappointed turnout had been just 77 percent, a tad below the 79 percent turnout of four years ago. But once again, even with fewer days to do so than in 2008, more voters opted to vote early, or by absentee, than went to the polls Tuesday. By the start of the counting after 7 p.m., 1,470 early votes had been cast and 1,433 by absentee, a total of 2,903. This was almost 300 more voters than the 2,618 who went to the polls Tuesday. Elliott said she had received one complaint from a young voter that it had been noisy at the polling place, but that is to be expected on the most energetic election Americans have, with turnout well beyond a typical off-year election. One voter on St George Island at the United Methodist Church polling place might have left behind more than his or her political views when voting on Tuesday. A pollworker reported that a watch had been found in the parking lot. If you believe it is yours, call Carlton at 927-2010. Jackel bests Shiver Both Jackel and Massey said they were relieved the long political campaign had come to an end. I feel very fortunate to have survived the day. Im very thankful to have this election concluded, Jackel said. Its been a long battle. I feel like I was the best candidate for the job and feel in some ways vindicated by the folks in my district through all that Ive been through. Early in the campaign, Jackel, a fulltime homesteaded resident of St. George Island, had been saddled with a nding by Property Appraiser Doris Pendleton that her husband in Georgia had led for a homestead exemption in that state. Jackel repaid the back taxes and penalties for the three years in question where there apparently had been dual homestead exemptions for the couple in both Georgia and Florida. Meggs later decided not to le misdemeanor charges against Jackel. In the end the constituents have spoken, she said. I think its a pretty clear message that theyve approved of the job Ive done the past four years, and all the comments and talk aside, they gured out Im who they want to represent them, and theyre happy with me. Ive worked hard, and Ive taken a lot of pride in the job Ive done, she said.

During the eightweek program, Smith completed a variety of training, which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, rst aid, re ghting, water safety and survival and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical tness. The capstone event of boot camp is Battle Stations, an exercise which gives recruits the skills and con dence they need to succeed in the eet. Battle Stations is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacri ce, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly Navy avor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor. Smith is a 2012 graduate of Franklin County High School of Eastpoint. Special to the Times In January 2013, Mikayla Lloyd along with other outstanding middle school students from across the United States will take part in a truly American celebration: the inauguration of the president of the United States.

The Presidential Inaugural Conference will provide students with an opportunity to take part in historic events that coincide with the inauguration of the president of the United States, said Dr. Marguerite Regan, dean of academic affairs for the conference. Something that is really wonderful about so many young people gathering in Washington, D.C. for this event is that it will provide them a chance to become more familiar with and attuned to the president, who will govern our country over the next four years. We certainly hope this will inspire the next generation of U.S. leaders. In addition to participating in inaugural events and festivities, scholars will have the opportunity to explore the numerous historic sites and memorials in our nations capital, as well as participate in activities designed to expand their knowledge of democratic principles and the presidential election process.

LOCAL ARCHERY SEASON OPEN FOR DEER, HOGS By FRANK SARGEANT franksargeant@charter.net There was a time when the average archer couldnt hit the proverbial bull in the butt, not if given a dozen arrows at 20 paces. But thanks to advances in gear during the past couple of decades, compound bows can be almost as accurate as scope-sighted ri es within the limits of their range, and archery and crossbow hunting has taken off like no other hunting sport. The Panhandle bow/ crossbow season runs through Nov. 21 for eithersex hunting, closes for a few days and then reopens Nov. 26-30 for bucks only. But its only with the coming of cooler weather in November that most hunters get serious; its no fun sitting in a tree stand sweating and trying not to swat at mosquitoes. The cooler weather also puts the deer on the move they seem to dislike exertion in the heat as much as we do, but as soon as a few 40-degree nights arrive, they move away from the beach its game on. Deer feed mostly at night, even in cooler weather, but they are almost entirely nocturnal until the mornings and evenings become comfortable for moving around in their hair-suits. Archers get rst crack at the herds, which increases the chance of success; the animals are at the peak of yearly abundance, theyre unspooked and they wont be rattled by the steady crack of ri es that begins with the gun season. Add to that theres only a fraction of the pressure that takes place when the regular season is under way, without the steady roar of four-wheel-drive trucks and ATVs to run all the deer into Georgia. Modern archery gear is good, to be sure. It includes peep sights, rangenders, string muf ers, stabilizers and dozens of other gizmos to turn Joe Sixpack into Robin Hood. One amazingly helpful device is the trigger release, a rig that ts over thumb and wrist, grips the string and allows the shooter to squeeze off the shot with a small trigger just as in a ri e it adds hugely to accuracy for most archers. And crossbows function very much like a ri e once the bolt or arrow is in place and the weapon is cocked. But even the best tackle requires plenty of repetitive training shots to be sure it does what its supposed to. Since bows depend on muscle power, and since it takes between 50 and 70 pounds of pull at break-over to draw a standard hunting bow, it used to be a strong mans game. Fortunately, modern compounds have considerable let-off in the effort needed to hold at full draw because of a system of cams, cables and pulleys; mechanics make it possible for just about any adult to draw and hold a bow with a nominal draw of 60 pounds. But it still requires strength, practice and calm nerves to hold steady enough to aim accurately. Many successful archers shoot daily for at least a month before the season to prepare and the best practice is from the elevated stand youll hunt from. The angles from an overhead shot make an arrow y very differently from the way it travels when shot at ground level, so it pays to put the tree stand up in the backyard and shoot from there for several weeks. Because most bowmen must get within about 25 to 30 yards of their quarry for an accurate shot, many go years without bagging a deer or hog. Being in a stand when an animal wanders close enough for a shot often requires endless patience, days or weeks in the woods, and the ability to remain still and silent for hours on end. And putting the stand in the right place is a real art. Expert archers take into account bedding and feeding routes, prevailing winds, natural funnels that direct deer on a particular path, perhaps between two ridges or through an opening in a fence. Its a fascinating chess game, and one which the hunter loses more often than he wins but its also addictive. To the advantage of bowhunters, theyre allowed to take does as well as bucks for most of the season. Since most deer herds have a lot more does than bucks, the either-sex rule helps a lot of hunters bring home venison. Florida has a very strong whitetail herd these days thanks to decades of tight hunting regulation. Deer numbers here are estimated at about 750,000 by the Game Commission. Wild hogs are thought to number at least 400,000 and the commission wishes there were none because hogs, an exotic species here, tear up the woods and ruin habitat for other animals. The numbers for both species have been steady for the past 10 years. While fewer than 20 percent of bowmen are likely to bring home an animal of any kind, bowhunting converts more gun hunters every year. It extends the season, and many sportsmen believe that the demands of archery make them better allaround hunters later in the year.

The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information Ive worked hard to do the best job I could. Jackel said she plans to push forward with such matters as getting the Eastpoint channel dredged and bathrooms constructed on the shing piers but cautioned that in the political process things take time. Jackels 944 votes, or 69 percent, to Shivers 421 votes translated to sizeable winning margins in both Eastpoint and the island, and a nearly three-to-one win among absentee voters. In reviewing the numbers, in which Jackel drew the same number of votes, 472, in both Eastpoint and the island, she pointed with satisfaction that she had done about as well on the mainland as she had on the island. Im really thrilled to hear that, Jackel said. I hope that says both sides of the bridge feel like Ive represented them well and fairly. I felt like both sides had not been equally represented, and I just wanted fair representation for both. There was a tendency for each side to feel the other was treated more fairly. Relations are as good as Ive seen them. I appreciate their con dence and trust in me, said Jackel, her voice hoarse from a bout of bronchitis shes been fending off for the past 10 days. Im going to work hard and do the best I can for them. Ill be available and help in any way I can as their commissioner. Massey beats Garrett Democrat William Massey, 53, swamped his opponent, Hank Garrett, 48, by a better than threeto-one margin, collecting 789 votes, or 77 percent of the total, to Garretts 237 votes, or 23 percent. Newcomer Massey, who defeated incumbent county commissioner Bevin Putnal in the August Democratic primary, outpolled Garrett among voters in Eastpoint and Carrabelle, as well as early and absentee voters. Garrett ran without party af liation. I want to thank everyone in my district who voted for me, for all their support, Massey said. Im truly humbled. Known throughout Carrabelle as Little William, Massey said he spent the day standing at the polls, making sure his presence was known as voters throughout District 5 went to the polls. Im happy, he said. Its been a long road. I feel like they want me in there. I feel like Im going to do them a good job, just taking care of my district and the county. Massey, who works as road supervisor for the Carrabelle street department, ran up his largest margin among Carrabelle voters at the senior center, who gave him a better than four-to-one margin over Garrett, 518-117. It was tighter in Eastpoint, where Garrett works for Water Management Services. There, Massey tallied a two-to-one victory, 271 to 120. Among absentee voters, Massey had 157 votes to Garretts 42, and among early voters, a 244-75 margin. Massey said he had been busy politicking up until a week ago and was grateful to voters for giving him the victory. They care about taking care of the district, and Ive been elected to serve the people, he said. A lot of people have called me and congratulated me for winning. I wont know what Im going to do until I get there on Nov. 20th for the swearing in. Meanwhile, he added, Im going back to work tomorrow. ELECTION from page A1

PUBLISH DATES: NOVEMBER 1, 8, 2012 NOTICE TAX IMPACT OF VALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARD FRANKLIN COUNTY TAX YEAR 2012 Special to the Times The commercial harvest of oysters in Apalachicola Bay will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays starting Nov. 17. When the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services nds that resources on monitored oyster bars cannot sustain a harvest of 300 bags of oysters per acre, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulations provide for the automatic weekend closure of the oyster harvest in Apalachicola Bay from Nov. 16 through May 31 each year. Apalachicola Bay includes all waters within St. George Sound, East Bay, Apalachicola Bay, St. Vincent Sound in Franklin County and Indian Lagoon in Gulf County. This change does not apply to active oyster leases or recreational harvest. The automatic closure was put in place in the mid-1980s after several hurricanes negatively affected the bay. The closure, which acts as a method to limit harvest and give oysters time to recover from low population numbers, was successful in returning the oyster population to a sustainable harvest level. DACS regularly monitors the abundance of oyster resources in the bay. This years report has shown that oyster population numbers are depleted. According to DACS, this is most likely because of prolonged severe drought and a lack of fresh water from the Apalachicola River. Apalachicola oysters make up about 90 percent of Floridas oyster harvest and 9 percent of all the landings from all Gulf of Mexico states. To learn more about Floridas commercial oyster harvest, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing; click on Saltwater, Commercial and Oyster. Weekend closures begin Nov. 17 Special to The Times The Franklin County Youth Basketball program has begun play. Coaches working with Seahawks Coach Michael Sweatt include Jeremy Williams, MacKenzie Williams, Dre Robinson, Tydron Wynn and Granville Croom. Middle school athletes taking part include Tyler Howard, Marshall Sweet, Kenneth Wilson, Josue Baharona, Jan Lowe, Johnny Jones, Nathan Jones, Michael Wilkes, Austin Mckey, Cash Creamer, Dylan Burch, Daijon Penamon, Sean Williams, Landon Nash, Mckalin Huckeba and Quantavious Fuller. The team opens a three-game home stand at 4:30 p.m. today, Nov. 8, against Tolar. On Tuesday, Nov. 13, the team hosts Wewa at 5 p.m., and on Thursday, Nov. 15, welcomes Riversprings, also at 5 p.m. On Nov. 17, the county team will take part in the Port St. Joe Tournament, and then is at Hosford on Nov. 27 before returning home Nov. 29 to face Blountstown.

Listed by Janie Burke By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com The second Calendar Girls Cabaret was a dazzling and romantic event and a tremendous financial success. On Saturday night, Oct. 27, more than 100 revelers came to the Coombs Armory for a night of song and celebration to benefit Franklin Needs. Franklin Needs Inc. promotes breast cancer awareness and education in Franklin County and provides free mammogram screening for residents aged 35 to 64. Founded in 2008 by Elaine Kozlowsky, the group published a the first Calendar Girls calendar in 2009 and raised about $50,000 to provide breast cancer screening to county women. Franklin Needs published its second calendar for 2013 this year, and it is on sale now in many locations. As in 2009, the calendar girls celebrated breast health with a cabaret featuring local entertainers and, of course, the calendar girls. As the crowd filtered in past luminaries lining the sidewalk, Tony Minichiello and Bob Franklin provided a musical backdrop. At 8:30 p.m., the ball passed to deejay Van Johnson who provided romantic hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s with lots of love songs and slow dancing favorites. Emcee Royce Rolstad and Kozlowsky welcomed the attendees. Tamara Marsh and Ginny Griner, Apalachicolas own nightingales, performed a medley of melodies leading up to a presentation of calendar girls past and present. This year, the ladies were available for a spin on the dance floor too for a price. This was the limousine of taxi dances though, with some of the countys brightest lights elegantly dressed to trip the light fantastic. Pam Nobles Hot Flashes, resplendent in scarlet sequins, performed to the delight of the crowd. There was a raffle with prizes provided by numerous local artists and businesses. At the end of the program, Carol Barfield, Miss August 2013, sang happy birthday to honor all the survivors of breast cancer. The evening ended with a full dance floor as celebrants twirled and glided to Johnsons sophisticated selections. Kozlowsky later was pleased to announce the cabaret cleared more than $2,275. She said that all entertainment was volunteer and the Armory was provided free of charge. By Nov. 5, Franklin Needs had collected $28,700 in the current fundraising campaign. Were right on track, Kozlowsky said. Thank you Franklin County! She and the board of Franklin Needs also wished to remind everyone that the calendars make great Christmas gifts.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In a county where Democrats outnumber Republicans almost three to one, voters made it known Tuesday that they lean sharply to the red state side of the ballot box. In addition to giving Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney 65 percent of the vote (one percentage point better than John McCain did four years ago), Franklin County voters split almost exactly evenly between incumbent U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, the eventual victor, and his Republican challenger Connie Mack, with both getting 48.7 percent of the vote. Just one vote separated their total among Franklin County voters, with Nelson taking 2,616 and Mack 2,615. In Congressional District 2, incumbent Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, won almost 59 percent support among county voters, more than ve percentage points than he did overall, as he fended off a stiff challenge from Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee. In the race for County Commission District 1, which encompasses Eastpoint and St. George Island, incumbent Pinki Jackel, who four years ago became the rst Republican in modern times to win a county commission seat, easily outdistanced her Democratic challenger Tony Shiver to secure a second term. In District 5, which includes portions of Eastpoint east into Carrabelle, Democrat William Massey swamped by a better than three-to-one margin his opponent, Hank Garrett, 48, who ran without party af liation.

We got lucky when we booked Lee Brice, said Florida Seafood Festival Director President John Solomon. A year ago, when the festival directors chose Brice for this years Saturday night concert, he was a rising star. Since then, he has skyrocketed into fame. Brices highest charting single is A Woman Like You, which reached No. 1 in April. Love Like Crazy was Billboards Top Country Song of 2010, spending 56 weeks on the Hot By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com From the opening of the gates on Friday morning to the much anticipated concert on Saturday night, the 49th annual Florida Seafood Festival came off without a hitch, and lots of folks are calling it the best ever. The weather was perfect, with temperatures rising to 80 degrees during the day, clear blue skies and a light breeze. More than a dozen boats came for the Blessing of the Fleet on Friday afternoon. As about 100 onlookers watched from shore, Miss Florida Seafood Christina Collins and King Retsyo Smokey Parrish arrived aboard the Buddys Boys shrimp boat. The eclectic collection of vessels included the shrimp boat Freedom that continued on to work afterward; Floridays, a sailboat; sport shing boats Stray Dog and Trash Can; and Captain Gills charter houseboat the Lily.

In addition to title track Hard 2 Love his second album produced the platinum hit A Woman Like You. But theres more to Brice than talent and bad boy good looks. Hes a nice guy. Brice might look like a pro football player, but beneath that rugged exterior is the heart of a teddy bear. Traveling from a friends wedding in Thomasville, Ga., he was a little late on Saturday night. Nobody minded with songbird Lisa Shaffer from Nashville on the stage. The beautiful and talented songstress continued to perform without complaint. When the star arrived about 30 minutes late, a group of fans lucky enough to obtain admission passes to the Bud Light Meet and Greet were anxiously huddled outside the gate, waiting to shake his hand or ask for an autograph. Barely breaking stride, Brice popped into his tour bus to get his bearings and in less than ve minutes was back outside, ready to make new friends. The plan had been to allow only pass holders into the backstage area, but Solomon said when Brice saw most were accompanied by family members or friends, he asked his security and seafood festival staff to allow everyone inside. Perhaps 100 people lined up to speak to him, and he had a genuine word and a warm smile for each of them. He autographed items ranging from T-shirts, both occupied and unoccupied, to cellphones, arms, sneakers and hats. He took time to speak to everyone in line and made sure each fan was photographed with him. The concert was well worth the short wait. Brice gave a dazzling performance to the happy and excited crowd. Girls blew him kisses, held their hearts and some even cried. He was toasted again and again, and kept the crowd on its feet and dancing for more than an hour. After the concert, he took time to speak to several people waiting backstage. One youngster said she loved to play the drums, and Brice dispatched one of his staffers to fetch a drumstick which he then autographed and presented to her as a token of his encouragement to pursue her musical dreams. He then invited members of the festival board to join him in his bus, where they watched the Alabama/LSU football game and talked about music, football, fairs and shing. Brice asked Solomon if he would join him on a shing trip on Sunday. Solomon said his festival duties wouldnt allow him to take the day off, but his staff overruled him. Solomon and Brice spent Sunday afternoon on the bay. Ive been doing this for ve years now, Solomon said. Ive been around a lot of stars, but there has been nobody as polite and as giving as this guy here. To see a gallery of the Lee Brice concert, visit www.ApalachTimes.com. jumped in their wake. The Rev. Themo Patriotis of the United Methodist Cooperative Parish, the Rev. Martha Harris of Trinity Episcopal Church, the Rev. Craig Hicks of Living Water Assembly of God, the Rev. Barry Hand of the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Dr. John Sink and Sister Jeanne Drea of St. Patrick Catholic Church of ciated at the blessing. Micah Patriotis acted as crossbearer, and Chris Clark performed on bagpipe. The king and queen walked with their entourage to the heart of the festival, where the royal couple was welcomed by Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson, who praised the seafood workers and maritime trades as the foundation of the county economy. Festival President John Solomon said based on ticket sales, just fewer than 30,000 people attended the festival, slightly less than last year, but sales were brisk in the food court. Many of the food booths run by local not-for-pro ts sold out before the gates closed Saturday night. Solomon said over the last three years, there has been an increase in participation by local food vendors. This year, eight of the food booths were occupied by a not-for-pro ts, up two from last year. We ask each local vendor to specialize in just one or two food items, Solomon said. This year, Franklin County cooks prepared and sold gumbo, fried mullet, oysters, fried Oreos, low country boil from an heirloom recipe and more. The number of arts and crafts booths was up slightly from last year, and most vendors reported good sales. The annual Friday night Oyster Roast fundraiser for the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce was a sellout with more than 200 in attendance. The Apalachicola Bay oysters served there and at the festival were exceptionally fat and salty. Some of the competitors in the oyster eating contest on Saturday thought they were a little too fat and complained they were larger than usual. The winner of the mens division of this years contest, newcomer Lee Postiere, managed to down 20 dozen (240). Second place went to Warren Melzer, who ate 150 oysters, and third place to Jerome Brown, who downed 145. In the womens division, Angie Harnage took the honors for the second consecutive year, consuming seven dozen. Last year, she ate 10 dozen. With six dozen under her belt, Ashley Goins came in second, followed by Andria Price, who consumed ve dozen. In a surprise upset, Rick McCurley, sponsored by Dustys Oyster Bar in Panama City Beach, took rst place in the oyster shucking contest. Last years champ and reigning national champ Mike Martin was rst to nish but came in second based on points for presentation. Brandon Patrick was No. 3. T.J. Ward said he and the other oyster judges, Lynn Griner and Dan Davis consider whether the oysters are completely detached from the shell, if blood or trash is present and whether the oysters are broken. The shucker with the best score for presentation receives a 10-second bonus. The judges take their job very seriously and treat it with the dignity deserved, said Michael Shuler, the festival director who oversees the shucking competition. The outcome has a major effect on prestige if not nances. McCurley, runner up in the 2012 National Oyster Shucking Contest in Leonardtown, Md., has not competed in Apalachicola for six years. As winner, he will receive a $500 check to help pay his way to the national competition in 2013. Second place receives $100 and third place $50. Pam Brownell organized this years Saturday morning parade. She said some changes were made, such as not having beauty queens showcased seated on the hood of a car. For safetys sake, everyone was either in a vehicle or on a oat. A number of boats were called into service to ferry lovelies, including the Franklin Needs Calendar Girls, along the parade route. This gave the parade even more of a nautical avor. More than 60 entries were displayed. Brownell said she received entries and cancellations up to the last minute. The Seahawks marching band gave an outstanding performance, looking smart in their black and silver uniforms. Also new this year was a pre-parade lineup, which did not stage on 12th Street and thus did not block access to Weems Memorial Hospital. The weekend culminated with a concert by celebrated country artist Lee Brice, who arrived a little late but gave a performance well worth the wait.

Henry Kozlowsky and Liz Sisung play Norma and Howard Karchmer, a middle-aged couple who have been married for 20some years, raised their daughter, and now face the uncertainty of the rest of their lives. Kozlowsky lends his sarcastic wit to Howard, who prefers to daydream about spies on far-off mountaintops rather than focus on his daily life as a tailor in New Jersey. Tired of his reveries, Norma asks friend Dorothy Arn eld, portrayed by Bronx-born and former New Jersey resident Judy Loftus, to tempt Howard in an effort to shake up his fantasies. The widow Dorothy has an admirer of her own, Sydney Hersch, played by Apalachicola resident Bob Inguagiato. Further complicating this love quadrangle, Howard and Normas grown daughter Louise, local sheries biologist Katie Maxwell, nally brings her new boyfriend Freddy home to meet the parents only to nd them in turmoil. Timid Freddy, depicted by Caf con Leches Frederic Kahler, is taken aback by the Karchmers antics, and Louise is not pleased.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola TimesThursday, November 8, 2012By LINDA HEll LL IESEN-GRAYSpecial to the Times We had always heard about my husbands family history, family stories, where his parents were from, what his parents parents and their ancestors did for a living but the reality has been an exciting adventure into ancestor land. We walked in their footsteps, looked at their homes, went into the church where they worshiped, probably ate where they dined, and touched their graves. On a recent trip to Apalachicola, armed with some information gleaned from family stories, history and the internet, we traced the footsteps of his greatgrandfather, George Henry Whiteside and his brothers. His mothers parents, William Peter Brunson and Mattie Kilby (Whiteside) Brunson passed away when Cordelia Noelle Brunson (Gray), Mom was rather young. After her parents passed, Mom was sent to Atlanta to live with her Aunt Anna Wallace (Whiteside) Nichols. Mom later attended a teachers college in Athens, Ga., married Frank H. Gray and had six children and traveled as a Army wife. She told stories of her younger years as a girl growing up in Apalachicola, her loving family, her innocence and privilege. Our rst stop was the municipal library where we found a wealth of information and photos. For the rst time we saw a photo of my husbands grandmother, Mattie Kilby Whiteside Brunson and Mrs. W. H. Whiteside, who were members of the Philaco Womans Club. Looking into the eyes of his ancestor grandmother, tears welled in my husbands eyes. No, we had never met her and dont even know what she was like but she contributed to his gene pool and later, to our sons gene pool. We were extremely fortunate to speak with the knowledgeable librarian who said the historical librarian would be there the next day. We left our telephone number and the place where we would be staying. We drove by the ancestral home to see what it looked like. We then headed for the cemetery to see if we could nd the nal resting places. The Chestnut Cemetery for some reason didnt t; it did not feel right. The ages of the stones appeared correct, but we just didnt think we were in the right area. We then went to the Magnolia Cemetery. We were told by the librarian that the Magnolia Cemetery had been relocated after the original resting site was ooded. We spent hours looking for a gravesite, which we knew was somewhere because we had a web picture of it. Where could we nd the grave markers and other information? We went to lunch, probably drove the same area where our ancestors walked, sat and ate. We enjoyed the abundance of oysters and shrimp, something else his ancestors would have eaten. As we talked, we devised a research plan; we needed a telephone book to locate additional information. We needed to locate the courthouse, hopefully to obtain more information. So, we returned to the hotel where I would make some calls. Luckily there was an old fashioned printed telephone book in the room. First, we contacted the courthouse to determine if there was a lot and plot number for the cemetery. Would a funeral home have this information? The lady we spoke with was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, but we would have to call back the next day. At this point, the ancestors hit me in the head! I dont know why I didnt think about this earlier. On the photograph of the markers from the internet there was a name of the photographer. Ding, ding, ding, ding! We found the photographers name, looked her up in the traditional phone book and learned she is a reporter for the Apalachicola Times. We then phoned and made initial contact with Lois Swoboda. Ms. Swoboda was gracious and extremely helpful, taking her personal time. She met us at the cemetery to show us the grave site, initially having trouble nding it herself. Trees and sometimes surrounding landmarks change, but after about 30 minutesvoila! At the same area we walked past at least 20 times the day before, the markers they were, as huge as day. She found the markers of the Whitesides and the Brunsons. Hurrah! The grave sites were located and in relatively good shape. My husband lovingly cleaned the markers which had not been visited in years. A marker indicated that George Henry Whiteside had enlisted in 1861 at age 17, in the CSA (Confederate States of America). Additional research conrmed he was later sent to the Confederate Naval Yard in Columbus, Georgia, to be with his brothers, Captain Samuel Judd Whiteside and their younger brother, Thomas J. Whiteside, who was 12 at the time of the beginning of the Civil War. Ms. Swoboda gave us useful and accurate information to help with our research, for which we were thankful. She took us by the original family house located on Sixth Street. This Whiteside house was occupied by the family prior to moving to the second house, located on D Street, which is where Mom lived as a child. The second house was the one we found listed on the internet as the Whiteside house, looked vacant. We would have loved to have been able to enter this house to feel the presence of my husbands mother and her family. If those walls could talk, what would they say, what history would they tell? The next day, we went back to the library where we learned more information. We were provided with les and books to look through. This historical librarian had a long history in Apalachicola, lled in the blanks with information and sending us in the right direction. We already knew that the Whitesides were well known, respected, had an ice house, and went to Trinity Episcopal Church and where they lived. We visited Trinity, which was open. There was an awe in the feeling of those who entered those doors before us. We reected about the times the Whiteside and Brunson families gathered, worshiped, probably walking around the same pews where they sat for Sunday service. We then visited the John Gorrie Museum State Park. Dr. Gorrie, a friend of George and Samuel Whiteside, was the Florida physician and inventor who developed a mechanical refrigeration and ice making. Through research, Gorrie proved that malaria was carried by mosquitoes, observing that patients did better when it was cooler, which in turn, lead him to gure out a way to cool the rooms. The museum was informative. After viewing the museum, I am of the rm belief that the United States should have a Dr. Gorrie Appreciation Day and I thank Dr. Gorrie every time I walk into my cool house or have a ice cube to cool my drink. However, unfortunately, he never saw his invention in full use. After Dr. Gorrie died, Samuel Whiteside went to Savannah, Ga. to open the Gorrie Ice House, while George W. Whiteside, with investors, opened the Ice and Canning Company on Water Street in Apalachicola. But, where was the Whiteside Ice and Canning Company ice house located? We were referred to Deloress Sweet Shoppe restaurant where we met another long-time resident and local historian, Delores Roux. She was able to tell us where the ice house once stood. She said that the ice house caught re, leaving only one wall in place. Armed with the correct location and knowing where the wall still stood, we were able to locate the area and take some photos in our ancestors footsteps. She said that she knew Frank Whiteside and we learned a little more about what Frank was like and the Whiteside family. We now had names and dates, but who were these ancestors? What were they like? We will have to do further research to determine where the piece of the puzzle ts. It was time to leave our adventure into ancestral land. We learned as much as we could in two short days. We met wonderful, helpful people who went out of their way to help us with information. We purchased books and T-shirts. Armed with names and dates, we would now continue our research with books and on line. Names, birth dates and death dates are always nice but family stories are even better. Who were the people behind the names? As we drove out of town, we saw the KOA Campground at Eastpoint, once owned by Frank and Faith Whiteside. The sign was barely standing, once proudly announcing visitors welcome. We would have loved to have stayed and chat awhile, to walk the same path, but time was short and we will have to visit again. Now, armed with additional information and books, we are learning about where the Whitesides began and when the name died. Yes, every beginning has an end. With the help of historians, our son will have written information to tell his children about the Whiteside/Brunson long history, ghting in the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, what they stood for, and what they fought for. We will return one day, hopefully soon, to once again enjoy fresh sh, shrimp and oysters. In the meantime, we will research and collect more family information, photographs, history and stories from where our ancestors walked in Apalachicola. Months later, research continues as we search genealogy sites. The family tree grows with each new name and date we nd through additional research. We have learned of more books written about the history of the areas which include ancestor names. A recent book, Apalachicola Ice was written by Faith Whiteside Bingham, wife of Frank Whiteside. Mrs. Bingham passed away, and her daughter, Robin Ingram, completed the project and had it published in August 2012. The book can be purchased at the local bookstore, Downtown Books. Once again, we sincerely thank each and every person who took the time to help us along the way. to walk in the footsteps of my husbands ancestors.IIn the footsteps of my husbands ancestorsNovember is National Hospice Month. Its no surprise that this is also the month that we commemorate veterans and family caregivers. Along with hospice workers, these groups serve others, being there for those who count on us to keep them comfortable, safe and protected. Big Bend Hospice is proud to have partnered with the Tallahassee VA Outpatient Clinic to remember and honor our veterans during a Service of Remembrance held Nov. 13. Each time a veteran passes away, it leaves a hole in our hearts and in our societys collective memory. Likewise, family caregivers are seless individuals who give of themselves, sometimes putting their own lives on hold, to care for an ill or dying loved one. They are unsung heroes. At Big Bend Hospice we see rsthand the courage and love that goes into being a caregiver 24/7 and we continually look for ways to provide support to hospice family caregivers and ease their load and renew their spirit. When patients put their trust in Big Bend Hospice, our staff considers it a sacred obligation to live up to that trust. We exist to provide the highest quality of care to people facing a life-limiting illness. We offer compassionate support and comfort to both the patient and their family. In 2013 Big Bend Hospice will celebrate 30 years of serving this community. With your assistance, we will continue to help every patient have the opportunity to make the most of each day of life. Please join me during November and salute all of these groups as they do the work that has to be done, which sometimes requires incredible sacrice. We are a better community because we can come together in support of each other. I encourage everyone to join me in thanking these dedicated individuals for the work they do. Cathy Atkison President and CEOStaff sees hospice as sacred obligation LINDA HELLIESEN-GRAY | Special to the TimesWe walked in their footsteps, looked at their homes, went into the church where they worshiped, probably ate where they dined, and touched their graves.

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, November 8, 2012 Beshears, the Republican candidate, won the same percentage of county voters, about 60 percent, as he did throughout the sprawling district to top Liberty County Clerk of Court Robert Hill, a Democrat. In Florida Senate District 3, incumbent Democrat Bill Montford secured 60 percent of support among county voters, about 12 percentage points lower than his overall total, as he was victorious over Republican John Shaw. In the race for state attorney in the 2nd Judicial Circuit, Republican challenger Pete Williams secured 57 percent support among county voters, eight percentage points better than he did overall, but it wasnt enough to eke out a win against incumbent Democrat Willie Meggs, who was returned to of ce with 51 percent of the vote. In the nonpartisan race for circuit judge of the 2nd Judicial Circuit, Barbara Hobbs secured about 52 percent support among county voters and went on to a win over incumbent Jose na Tamayo. Franklin County voters views of the 11 amendments to the Florida Constitution that were on the ballot were the same as Florida voters overall. More than 60 percent of voters, the threshold needed for approval, said yes to Amendments 2, 9 and 11, with the other eight amendments all going down to defeat. Passed were the Disabled Vet Homestead Discount, which expands homestead exemption to veterans who were not Florida residents when they entered military service; the Military Spouse Tax Exemption, which gives homestead tax relief to surviving spouses of veterans and rst responders killed in the line of duty; and Additional Homestead Exemption, which will grant full homestead property tax relief to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for at least 25 years. Of the three members of the Florida Supreme Court, and four from the District 1 Court of Appeals, who were on the ballot, county voters gave a majority vote of approval to each of them, as did Florida voters overall.Big turnout, smooth countingTuesdays election at the countys eight precincts ran about as well as an election can be conducted, prompting County Judge Van Russell, to remark at the elections of ce Tuesday night that it was the smoothest he had seen in his 24 years on the canvassing board. Supervisor of Elections Ida Elliott, who was overseeing her rst presidential election, had absentee and early voting results to state elections of cials by 7:05 p.m., ve minutes after the polls closed. Twenty minutes later, the entire results of all but 17 provisional ballots were submitted to the state. By 8:30 p.m., with all their pressing work nished, the threeperson canvassing board, Elliott, Russell and County Commissioner Cheryl Sanders, together with deputy elections staffers Heather Riley and Carrie Johnson, had determined that 12 of the provisional ballots should be counted, and the election tally was completed. I cant believe how fast all those ballots got here, Elliott said, praising the work of her 50-person crew of poll workers. She said she was disappointed turnout had been just 77 percent, a tad below the 79 percent turnout of four years ago. But once again, even with fewer days to do so than in 2008, more voters opted to vote early, or by absentee, than went to the polls Tuesday. By the start of the counting after 7 p.m., 1,470 early votes had been cast and 1,433 by absentee, a total of 2,903. This was almost 300 more voters than the 2,618 who went to the polls Tuesday. Elliott said she had received one complaint from a young voter that it had been noisy at the polling place, but that is to be expected on the most energetic election Americans have, with turnout well beyond a typical off-year election. One voter on St George Island at the United Methodist Church polling place might have left behind more than his or her political views when voting on Tuesday. A pollworker reported that a watch had been found in the parking lot. If you believe it is yours, call Carlton at 927-2010.Jackel bests Shiver Both Jackel and Massey said they were relieved the long political campaign had come to an end. I feel very fortunate to have survived the day. Im very thankful to have this election concluded, Jackel said. Its been a long battle. I feel like I was the best candidate for the job and feel in some ways vindicated by the folks in my district through all that Ive been through. Early in the campaign, Jackel, a fulltime homesteaded resident of St. George Island, had been saddled with a nding by Property Appraiser Doris Pendleton that her husband in Georgia had led for a homestead exemption in that state. Jackel repaid the back taxes and penalties for the three years in question where there apparently had been dual homestead exemptions for the couple in both Georgia and Florida. Meggs later decided not to le misdemeanor charges against Jackel. In the end the constituents have spoken, she said. I think its a pretty clear message that theyve approved of the job Ive done the past four years, and all the comments and talk aside, they gured out Im who they want to represent them, and theyre happy with me. Ive worked hard, and Ive taken a lot of pride in the job Ive done, she said.

Smith of Mulberry, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eightweek program, Smith completed a variety of training, which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, rst aid, re ghting, water safety and survival and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical tness. The capstone event of boot camp is Battle Stations, an exercise which gives recruits the skills and con dence they need to succeed in the eet. Battle Stations is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacri ce, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly Navy avor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor. Smith is a 2012 graduate of Franklin County High School of Eastpoint.Special to the TimesIn January 2013, Mikayla Lloyd along with other outstanding middle school students from across the United States will take part in a truly American celebration: the inauguration of the president of the United States. During the ve-day program, the Middle School Presidential Inaugural Conference will provide Inaugural Scholars with a deeper understanding of the history behind the electoral process and the rich traditions surrounding the presidential inauguration. Mikayla is the daughter of Davie Lloyd and an eighth grade student at the Apalachicola Bay Charter School, where she is an A student, president of Student Council and captain of Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She enjoys singing with Unde ned, studying music, playing soccer, swimming and hanging out with her friends. She was extended this special opportunity exclusively due to her status as an alumna of the National Young Scholars Program (NYSP). At the conference, Mikayla and her fellow alumni will be honored as distinguished young leaders and accomplished students. The Presidential Inaugural Conference will provide students with an opportunity to take part in historic events that coincide with the inauguration of the president of the United States, said Dr. Marguerite Regan, dean of academic affairs for the conference. Something that is really wonderful about so many young people gathering in Washington, D.C. for this event is that it will provide them a chance to become more familiar with and attuned to the president, who will govern our country over the next four years. We certainly hope this will inspire the next generation of U.S. leaders. In addition to participating in inaugural events and festivities, scholars will have the opportunity to explore the numerous historic sites and memorials in our nations capital, as well as participate in activities designed to expand their knowledge of democratic principles and the presidential election process.

LOCAL ARCHERY SEASON OPEN FOR DEER, HOGSBy FRANK SARGEANTfranksargeant@charter.net There was a time when the average archer couldnt hit the proverbial bull in the butt, not if given a dozen arrows at 20 paces. But thanks to advances in gear during the past couple of decades, compound bows can be almost as accurate as scope-sighted ri es within the limits of their range, and archery and crossbow hunting has taken off like no other hunting sport. The Panhandle bow/ crossbow season runs through Nov. 21 for eithersex hunting, closes for a few days and then reopens Nov. 26-30 for bucks only. But its only with the coming of cooler weather in November that most hunters get serious; its no fun sitting in a tree stand sweating and trying not to swat at mosquitoes. The cooler weather also puts the deer on the move they seem to dislike exertion in the heat as much as we do, but as soon as a few 40-degree nights arrive, they move away from the beach its game on. Deer feed mostly at night, even in cooler weather, but they are almost entirely nocturnal until the mornings and evenings become comfortable for moving around in their hair-suits. Archers get rst crack at the herds, which increases the chance of success; the animals are at the peak of yearly abundance, theyre unspooked and they wont be rattled by the steady crack of ri es that begins with the gun season. Add to that theres only a fraction of the pressure that takes place when the regular season is under way, without the steady roar of four-wheel-drive trucks and ATVs to run all the deer into Georgia. Modern archery gear is good, to be sure. It includes peep sights, rangenders, string muf ers, stabilizers and dozens of other gizmos to turn Joe Sixpack into Robin Hood. One amazingly helpful device is the trigger release, a rig that ts over thumb and wrist, grips the string and allows the shooter to squeeze off the shot with a small trigger just as in a ri e it adds hugely to accuracy for most archers. And crossbows function very much like a ri e once the bolt or arrow is in place and the weapon is cocked. But even the best tackle requires plenty of repetitive training shots to be sure it does what its supposed to. Since bows depend on muscle power, and since it takes between 50 and 70 pounds of pull at break-over to draw a standard hunting bow, it used to be a strong mans game. Fortunately, modern compounds have considerable let-off in the effort needed to hold at full draw because of a system of cams, cables and pulleys; mechanics make it possible for just about any adult to draw and hold a bow with a nominal draw of 60 pounds. But it still requires strength, practice and calm nerves to hold steady enough to aim accurately. Many successful archers shoot daily for at least a month before the season to prepare and the best practice is from the elevated stand youll hunt from. The angles from an overhead shot make an arrow y very differently from the way it travels when shot at ground level, so it pays to put the tree stand up in the backyard and shoot from there for several weeks. Because most bowmen must get within about 25 to 30 yards of their quarry for an accurate shot, many go years without bagging a deer or hog. Being in a stand when an animal wanders close enough for a shot often requires endless patience, days or weeks in the woods, and the ability to remain still and silent for hours on end. And putting the stand in the right place is a real art. Expert archers take into account bedding and feeding routes, prevailing winds, natural funnels that direct deer on a particular path, perhaps between two ridges or through an opening in a fence. Its a fascinating chess game, and one which the hunter loses more often than he wins but its also addictive. To the advantage of bowhunters, theyre allowed to take does as well as bucks for most of the season. Since most deer herds have a lot more does than bucks, the either-sex rule helps a lot of hunters bring home venison. Florida has a very strong whitetail herd these days thanks to decades of tight hunting regulation. Deer numbers here are estimated at about 750,000 by the Game Commission. Wild hogs are thought to number at least 400,000 and the commission wishes there were none because hogs, an exotic species here, tear up the woods and ruin habitat for other animals. The numbers for both species have been steady for the past 10 years. While fewer than 20 percent of bowmen are likely to bring home an animal of any kind, bowhunting converts more gun hunters every year. It extends the season, and many sportsmen believe that the demands of archery make them better allaround hunters later in the year.

The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information Ive worked hard to do the best job I could. Jackel said she plans to push forward with such matters as getting the Eastpoint channel dredged and bathrooms constructed on the shing piers but cautioned that in the political process things take time. Jackels 944 votes, or 69 percent, to Shivers 421 votes translated to sizeable winning margins in both Eastpoint and the island, and a nearly three-to-one win among absentee voters. In reviewing the numbers, in which Jackel drew the same number of votes, 472, in both Eastpoint and the island, she pointed with satisfaction that she had done about as well on the mainland as she had on the island. Im really thrilled to hear that, Jackel said. I hope that says both sides of the bridge feel like Ive represented them well and fairly. I felt like both sides had not been equally represented, and I just wanted fair representation for both. There was a tendency for each side to feel the other was treated more fairly. Relations are as good as Ive seen them. I appreciate their con dence and trust in me, said Jackel, her voice hoarse from a bout of bronchitis shes been fending off for the past 10 days. Im going to work hard and do the best I can for them. Ill be available and help in any way I can as their commissioner.Massey beats GarrettDemocrat William Massey, 53, swamped his opponent, Hank Garrett, 48, by a better than threeto-one margin, collecting 789 votes, or 77 percent of the total, to Garretts 237 votes, or 23 percent. Newcomer Massey, who defeated incumbent county commissioner Bevin Putnal in the August Democratic primary, outpolled Garrett among voters in Eastpoint and Carrabelle, as well as early and absentee voters. Garrett ran without party af liation. I want to thank everyone in my district who voted for me, for all their support, Massey said. Im truly humbled. Known throughout Carrabelle as Little William, Massey said he spent the day standing at the polls, making sure his presence was known as voters throughout District 5 went to the polls. Im happy, he said. Its been a long road. I feel like they want me in there. I feel like Im going to do them a good job, just taking care of my district and the county. Massey, who works as road supervisor for the Carrabelle street department, ran up his largest margin among Carrabelle voters at the senior center, who gave him a better than four-to-one margin over Garrett, 518-117. It was tighter in Eastpoint, where Garrett works for Water Management Services. There, Massey tallied a two-to-one victory, 271 to 120. Among absentee voters, Massey had 157 votes to Garretts 42, and among early voters, a 244-75 margin. Massey said he had been busy politicking up until a week ago and was grateful to voters for giving him the victory. They care about taking care of the district, and Ive been elected to serve the people, he said. A lot of people have called me and congratulated me for winning. I wont know what Im going to do until I get there on Nov. 20th for the swearing in. Meanwhile, he added, Im going back to work tomorrow. ELECTION from page A1

When the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services nds that resources on monitored oyster bars cannot sustain a harvest of 300 bags of oysters per acre, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulations provide for the automatic weekend closure of the oyster harvest in Apalachicola Bay from Nov. 16 through May 31 each year. Apalachicola Bay includes all waters within St. George Sound, East Bay, Apalachicola Bay, St. Vincent Sound in Franklin County and Indian Lagoon in Gulf County. This change does not apply to active oyster leases or recreational harvest. The automatic closure was put in place in the mid-1980s after several hurricanes negatively affected the bay. The closure, which acts as a method to limit harvest and give oysters time to recover from low population numbers, was successful in returning the oyster population to a sustainable harvest level. DACS regularly monitors the abundance of oyster resources in the bay. This years report has shown that oyster population numbers are depleted. According to DACS, this is most likely because of prolonged severe drought and a lack of fresh water from the Apalachicola River. Apalachicola oysters make up about 90 percent of Floridas oyster harvest and 9 percent of all the landings from all Gulf of Mexico states.

Listed by Janie Burke By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com The second Calendar Girls Cabaret was a dazzling and romantic event and a tremendous financial success. On Saturday night, Oct. 27, more than 100 revelers came to the Coombs Armory for a night of song and celebration to benefit Franklin Needs. Franklin Needs Inc. promotes breast cancer awareness and education in Franklin County and provides free mammogram screening for residents aged 35 to 64. Founded in 2008 by Elaine Kozlowsky, the group published a the first Calendar Girls calendar in 2009 and raised about $50,000 to provide breast cancer screening to county women. Franklin Needs published its second calendar for 2013 this year, and it is on sale now in many locations. As in 2009, the calendar girls celebrated breast health with a cabaret featuring local entertainers and, of course, the calendar girls. As the crowd filtered in past luminaries lining the sidewalk, Tony Minichiello and Bob Franklin provided a musical backdrop. At 8:30 p.m., the ball passed to deejay Van Johnson who provided romantic hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s with lots of love songs and slow dancing favorites. Emcee Royce Rolstad and Kozlowsky welcomed the attendees. Tamara Marsh and Ginny Griner, Apalachicolas own nightingales, performed a medley of melodies leading up to a presentation of calendar girls past and present. This year, the ladies were available for a spin on the dance floor too for a price. This was the limousine of taxi dances though, with some of the countys brightest lights elegantly dressed to trip the light fantastic. Pam Nobles Hot Flashes, resplendent in scarlet sequins, performed to the delight of the crowd. There was a raffle with prizes provided by numerous local artists and businesses. At the end of the program, Carol Barfield, Miss August 2013, sang happy birthday to honor all the survivors of breast cancer. The evening ended with a full dance floor as celebrants twirled and glided to Johnsons sophisticated selections. Kozlowsky later was pleased to announce the cabaret cleared more than $2,275. She said that all entertainment was volunteer and the Armory was provided free of charge. By Nov. 5, Franklin Needs had collected $28,700 in the current fundraising campaign. Were right on track, Kozlowsky said. Thank you Franklin County! She and the board of Franklin Needs also wished to remind everyone that the calendars make great Christmas gifts.
