After listening to a series of concerns led by Apalachicola resident Jim Philyaw, city commissioners voted unanimously to have City Attorney Pat Floyd attend Monday nights Planning and Zoning meeting, where the matter is expected to be on the agenda. For the last few months Ive been concerned, Philyaw told commissioners. I keep hearing that the Family Dollar store is going to build an outlet across from my house. Philyaw, who said he had spent a number of years as a member of P&Z when the comprehensive plan was rst approved several years ago, questioned whether P&Z had acted properly when it rst granted the project a tentative go-ahead in April 2012. Though Philyaw said much of his knowledge on the matter had been gleaned second-hand, from talk on the street, he provided evidence to suggest P&Z lacked the authority to give the project its blessing, because the department store did not fall under the many possible special exceptions allowed in C-3 areas under the terms of the comp plans land-use element. Theres not a shoe that ts in there for a Family Dollar store, By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In parallel lines, their white-gloved hands gripping nothing but sorrow as they hung at their sides, the processional of the countys law enforcement ranks stood at grim attention as the family of Deputy Quinnaland Rhodes funneled slowly into New Life Tabernacle by the Sea on Saturday afternoon. At the front, escorted by Undersheriff Joel Norred, Felicia Vette Rhodes sobbed passionately as she prepared to bid goodbye to her husband of a dozen years, who had died suddenly just two days after Christmas. The walls of the church were lined with attendees as the pews lled with people from throughout the county, wanting to help soothe the shock and grief born when a beloved Plein Air Paint-Out kicks off Monday By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star .com Organizers are putting the rst strokes to this years Americas Great Plein Air Paint-out.

There are no tests, no grades, no stress, just fun. Registration for Education Encore begins at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Jan. 16 in Building A, Room 101, at the Gulf/Franklin Center. Registration is rst-come, rst-served. Classes will be held on six consecutive Wednesdays, beginning Jan. 23 and continuing through Feb. 27. Classes are being offered in three morning time periods, from 8:30 a.m. to noon, making it possible for a student to take three classes during this years Encore. In fact, the fee is based on each student having access to all three classes each Wednesday. The goal of Education Encore, Barr said, is to provide a learning environment that is fun, lively and offers diversity, insight and wisdom in which adults explore new ideas.

As Barr said, Dont miss this great opportunity to continue your education or pursue a longtime interest. You are never too old to learn. Education Encore back at Gulf/Franklin Center TIM CROFT | The Star Education Encore, offering an array of non-credit classes for adults, begins at the Gulf/Franklin Center in the coming weeks. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com The tipping fee at the land ll will increase by at least 25 percent, beginning in March. At their Jan. 2 meeting, Solid Waste Director Fonda Davis told county commissioners the county received only a single response to a request for bids to operate the solid waste transfer station at the county land ll. He said that after he requested a bid from Waste Pro of Midway because it had bid on the contract in the past, the company replied they were not interested in the contract. Davis said Waste Management, Inc. of Panama City, which currently holds the contract to operate the station, bid $57.95 per ton of waste. This is about a 25 percent increase over the $46.29 per ton fee charged by Waste Management for the last ve years. The board voted unanimously for Davis and his staff to continue negotiations with Waste Management, in hopes of getting the company to lower its fees. Waste Management disposes of household waste, but not recyclables or construction waste, for the county. The county currently charges a tipping fee of $46.55 per ton to accept household waste. The difference between this and what the county has to pay for disposal, 26 cents per ton, partially pays for the operation of the land ll. A representative of the Clerk of Courts of ce said the current fee does not totally cover the cost of operating the land ll even with additional revenue from recycling and construction waste. Waste Managements current agreement with the county ends on March 10. The county had the option to extend the current contract with Waste Management for ve additional years. At the Oct. 16, 2012 meeting, Davis asked the commissioners for permission to negotiate to extend the contract but commissioners voted unanimously to terminate Waste Managements agreement and request bids because the county was losing money on land ll operations. In a telephone interview, Davis said Waste Management could have increased rates even if the contract had been extended. He said the change initially will affect only the land ll tipping fee, but it could also eventually drive up commercial and residential garbage fees in Apalachicola and other parts of the county.

This proposal is for 44 parking places. None of them (spe cial exceptions) even come close. Philyaw said the matter should have been referred to the board of adjustment to see whether a variance could be granted. It is my understanding that this was never done, he said. Philyaw said he became concerned about what was happening with the 1.16acre lot, just east of the Best Western Motel, when he noticed trees on the property had been tagged for removal. There must be something going on, he said. As a citizen, I fully expect the city commission and their appointed board to toe the mark and follow the dictates of the ordnance. Its a residential neighborhood; there are uses permitted by the ordinance. What I would like to do is see us clear the air about this. City Administrator Betty Taylor-Webb responded to Philyaws concerns by outlining the process that began when the Family Dol lars developer, Brett Wood ward, came before P&Z on April 9, 2012. She said Woodward had come to ask questions about appropriate signage, and that P&Z had approved the smallest signs and said the project was consistent with the C-3 district. The vote in each case was unanimous, 5-0. Taylor-Webb said Fam ily Dollar moved forward on the project, including buy ing the property, but in No vember, after P&Z told the developers they would have to go through the special ex ception process, the matter was turned over to Floyd. Its on the agenda for the Jan. 14 meeting. At this point I dont know which way theyre going to go, she said. What P&Z did is read the intent of the zoned area. Special exceptions go through P&Z, but it doesnt fall in that category. Floyd tried to avoid a detailed discussion of the legal arguments that might ensue, stressing that it was premature to have the city commission weigh in on the matter. The proper proce dure is that P&Z is still han dling this matter, and they should handle this matter before it comes to this par ticular board. The city attorney said he had received a letter from the Family Dollars legal counsel asking about the status of the stores applica tion. Sufce it to say there was a representation made to P&Z, and P&Z analyzed it and came to the conclusion it was in compliance, and then a letter was sent to this company. What they (Family Dollar) may be doing now may be different than what they represented to P&Z. Family Dollar has told the city it bought the prop erty after receiving the let ter from the city, Floyd said. Two wrongs dont make a right, said Geoff Hewell, a P&Z member in the audi ence. Thats the way we left it, that they needed a special exception. We didnt approve anything; the only thing we approved that I know of is the signage, the size of the sign. We did say in our opin ion that was allowed. Floyd said the meetings minutes suggested the goahead went further than just signage. The minutes of the meeting say they dis cussed the use, and theres a determination that this use was consistent with (the zoning), he said. Floyd said Philyaw could make an appeal to the city regarding the P&Z action, but it remained unclear as to whether such an ap peal now, nine months after P&Zs actions, was within the required time frame. Taylor-Webb said she had received two other letters from citizens concerned about the project. Floyd touched on the legal implications of challenging the project now. After the horse gets out of the barn, there are certain things that cannot be reversed without damage, without problems, he said. Whenever a gov ernment entity acts, rightly or wrongly, and theres jus tiable reliance by a private citizen, thats a principle of law. The question is does this situation t within that principle? Commissioner Frank Cook said there might be other options available to the city outside of rescind ing P&Zs original determi nation. We may be fortu nate that were at the point that we are, he said. The project is not completed. There are other hoops that need to be gone though. At some point we may nd that the project doesnt work. All they were given was the idea that their project they intended to do t the outline of the things we said they could do, Cook said. Floyd supported that perspective. Thats what I want to give P&Z the oppor tunity to do, he said. Size, clearing, draining, etc., any one of which may be a prob lem. You have to go through the right procedures to do all this. Philyaw closed by re minding the city commis sioners they needed to ad here closely to their rules. Somebody dropped the candy in the sand, he said. Were right at point zero. Weve got to start over in this process. Plein air is French term that translates simply to open air. John Constable, a 19th century English artist whose paintings bring hun dreds of thousands of dollars at auc tion, encouraged artists to forget about formulas and trust their own vision in nding truth in nature. Around that time, a group of art ists in France focused on capturing everyday life and the natural world surrounding it. Plein air established the foundation for what became the Impressionist movement. Plein air paintings are done on location, capturing the atmosphere of the movement, something of a photograph on canvas with brush work, with little to no work in the studio. Last year, 20 nationally known artists gathered for Americas Great Plein Air Paint-out, setting up easels to document the land scape and culture of the Forgotten Coast, considered the last vestige of Old Florida. The event included ve exhibits across the Forgotten Coasts, daily artist demonstrations, two work shops, art sales and a series of pub lic receptions. Many local artists gather and paint alongside the events invited artists; it is amazing to see the art being created, said Joe Taylor, or ganizer of last years paint-out. The FCCC is a nonprot estab lished to produce regional multicommunity cultural events and coordinates the paint-out among communities such as Mexico Beach, WindMark Beach, Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Apalachicola, Eastpoint, St. George Island, Carrabelle, SummerCamp and Alligator Point. Support also comes from a host of private sponsors as well as the tourist development councils of Gulf and Franklin counties. FAMILY DOLLAR from page A1 the status of the ve areas the OPC is protesting from the PSCs August rate case decision. Customer testimony will be taken Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the St. George Island rehouse, 324 E. Pine Ave., beginning at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. The OPC has said the follow ing ve major issues addressed in OPCs testimony are critically important to customers: the use of utility money advanced for non-util ity purposes, the increased service availability charges, the remaining $153,000 balance on the gain-on-sale issue, the past rate case expense and the current protest rate case expense. Martin Friedman, an attorney for WMS, has said the issues raised by OPC either can be worked out ami cably or constitute little more than an unfair attack, particularly when it comes to allegations that the com pany took money out of customer revenue. Its all smoke and mirrors; its a red herring, he said. Its the big gest red herring argument you can imagine. Sayler has said $1.2 million in monies advanced for non-utility purposes should be titled in the util itys name, and the company should be prevented from advancing funds to anyone not related to utility op erations. They also want a thorough review of the salary drawn by Presi dent Gene Brown and to have the PSC reject any attempt to restore it in its entirety. The OPC also objects to in creased tap-in fees for new custom ers and wants to revisit the amount of the increased charge during the true-up phase for the new ground water storage tank. The OPC wants the PSC to order WMS to escrow service availability charges, as had been the case in past years. The OPC also is seeking to learn why WMS stopped paying its at torneys in the last rate case and is asking that some or all of this pre viously approved rate case expense be removed. Lastly, the OPC wants the PSC to allow only reasonable rate case expenses in this current case. PLEIN AIR from page A1 RATE HIKE from page A1

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, January 10, 2013 A Page 4 Section Special to the Times One of the revelations that surfaced from the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre was that deranged gunman, Adam Lanza, carried hundreds of rounds of ammunition, enough to kill all 450 children in the school. What stopped him? Apparently he decided to kill himself when he heard police sirens and knew that the of cers were nearing the scene and their guns would soon confront his. They say it takes a gun to stop a gun. Besides suggesting a possible solution, not heretofore considered, of having a recording of sirens approaching on some external sound system to frighten away those committing crimes on school grounds, why not give teachers and others assigned care of the children, the right to protect their students if they wish it? Just one gun somewhere on the premises could have been enough. Lanza had 10 minutes of unrestrained killing time before police arrived after 911 noti cation and before he took his life, ending the massacre. If but one armed concealed weapons permit holder had been nearby, he or she could have saved perhaps eight minutes of indiscriminate slaughter. How many lives is that? This is not to suggest that every teacher must participate, only those who wish to. Hundreds of regular citizens in my county already carry concealed weapons everywhere except in gun-free zones. Such is the same in most counties throughout the nation. Law enforcement normally sees them as an asset, the ultimate backup should they need extra help, and because cops know they cant be everywhere at the same time, as Sandy Hook demonstrated. Why not let them do so on school grounds as well, allowing them to be an asset of protection wherever they are? It would cost the school nothing. Chances are every school already has two or three concealed weapons permit holders among its faculty and staff now. Again, why not let those who wish to protect their students do so? Permit holders are among our nest citizens. Obtaining a concealed weapons permit requires a thorough investigation, a near perfect record from law enforcement, a stated need to carry, and some training. Normally they are older more mature folks and, in the case of teachers, we already trust our children with them. They are already on the scene where a policeman could not possibly be. What a deterrent to a would-be killer if he knew schools are no longer entirely gun free. Gun free zones clearly do not work. They certainly do not keep killers away. Most massacres in the United States happen in gunfree zones. Killers, anticipating no resistance, are not deterred but enticed, given access to large groups of unprotected, good, and innocent victims often children. Presently the only hope a teacher has who wishes to protect his or her students, is to hide them and at Sandy Hook that helped a few. In my classroom, as in most, there is but one door. Everyone inside, including me, has been set up by his own government to be a victim. In my classroom the door cannot be locked from inside should I hear gun re outside. There is a small back room (often kept locked by the school because it houses sensitive computer wiring connections) where students nearby could hide if they had access and time. Hopefully a potential gunman would then think no one was inside and move on to another classroom. But this is not enough. Since Sandy Hook happened, I ask students sitting on the door side of the room, upon hearing gun re from outside the room, to line up next to the wall, remove the re extinguisher from the wall next to a door that opens outwardly, and spray or hit the intruder as he enters. Those behind him then overwhelm the intruder after the distraction. But this is all that I can do and it is not enough. Since my students are adults this might work. Better yet, a teacher or student with a concealed weapons permit, need only pull out a weapon from pocket or purse and re a couple of rounds at a very surprised, then very dead, killer. Elected of cials, please give students and teachers a ghting chance to survive. Teachers have done nothing that should justify disarming us, or fearing us, and thus leaving us with virtually no hope of survival. You may answer, We cant just let anyone have a weapon of mass destruction! You already do. Anyone, 16 and older, can have access to an automobile, which is decidedly a weapon of mass destruction, even if he might commit crimes with it. This brings us back to the lessons of Sandy Hook. Adam Lanza did his deed in a location that he knew was gun free and ceased his rampage of killing only because someone else, in this case the police, would soon be ring at him. Next time, let that person be a teacher with a concealed weapon whose action would allow so many more students to live. Please.

Give teachers the right to protect their students DR. HAROLD PEASE The American Library Associations Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC) sponsors an award each year called the Newbery Medal, named for 18th-century British bookseller John Newbery. It is awarded annually to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Carrie Kienzle, former library director for the Irving, Texas school system and now full-time resident of Apalachicola, is a member of the 2013 Newbery Medal Selection Committee. After she has reviewed the books about 200 of them all published in 2012 for readers up to age 14 she is free to give the copies away, and this year they are all coming to the Apalachicola Municipal Library as their permanent home. The books, however, will be taking a short detour to the Franklin County School, through an arrangement with the librarians, Patty Creamer and Carol Davis, to be viewed and checked out through the school library. We hope to have them there by the end of January to coincide with the announcement of the 2013 Newbery winners. This will hopefully show young readers in Franklin County they have a library in Apalachicola they can use as well as the two county library branches in Eastpoint and Carrabelle for exciting recreational reading. The Apalachicola library often feels its junior collections, including a large Young Adult (860 titles) are not as wellutilized by junior readers in the county. Carrie donated most of these while a member of the Michael L. Printz Medal Committee for YA literature. Titles being considered by the Newbery Committee are secret until the award is announced, but they include books by very well-known authors in fantasy; gritty contemporary plots with teen protagonists; gentle tales of small town life with dogs; and even graphic novels. Lots of variety is ensured by the nomination of many new talented authors, but you will have to wait to know who. Visit www.ala.org/alsc/ awardsgrants/bookmedia to learn more. While the Apalachicola Municipal Library has not quite nished its automation project, and rolled out an AML website, it is still accessible online. Google Apalachicola Municipal Library, select the librarytechnology link and click on the online catalog. You will go to https://apalachicola. biblionix.com/atoz/catalog/ where you can browse the catalog. Placing reserves and renewing books requires the use of your patron number which you can request from us, since we have not yet started to issue cards. This library, as I have written about before, has a space problem; as we add new books, and retain lots of classics and favorites, we are running out of book space. Anyone interested in expressing their opinion about various options is welcome to attend the library board meetings held the rst Monday of each month at 5 p.m. here at 74 6th Street. The meeting schedule is posted on the city website. Caty Greene is the librarian for the Apalachicola Municipal Library. To reach her, call 653-8436. @ THE LIBRARY Caty Greene Library, school share Newbery Medal contenders I received a telephone call this past Saturday, Jan. 5 from the U.S. Census Bureau. The woman calling asked why I had not returned to them the NEW census form recently sent to me in the mail. I informed her that I had not received a new form. She explained that there was a snafu with physical addresses and post of ce box addresses, and the postmaster general had refused to deliver those letters sent to a post of ce box. She said she could take my information over the phone, but I refused this offer and told her I thought that this telephone call was some sort of scam to get my personal information. She assured me that this was no scam, and she then gave me a telephone number to call to verify that she was who she said she was. I called this number and ascertained that she was from the U.S. Census Bureau. I informed the second woman I spoke with that I had complied with the Census Bureau in 2010 by lling out their form and returning it in a timely manner, and I did not feel it was necessary to complete another census form. She then told me that it did not matter that I had completed and returned this form in 2010, it was mandatory that I must once again ll out this form and return it to her. I asked her who had thought up this little caper, and she replied that it was the U.S. Congress. My rst question is why must I once again ll out a new census form? My second question is why is the Census Bureau still working on the 2010 census when the census was completed in 2010? Because the of cial census was taken in 2010, there would be no relevancy in census information given in 2013. This brings me to the conclusion that our government is creating jobs for certain individuals, and these individuals are working on Saturdays and Sundays and getting paid overtime to do so! What a ripoff! To pay individuals working for the Census Bureau overtime to inform American citizens that they must ll out another census form is a terrible misuse of taxpayers money! Why dont they go after the people who did not comply with the 2010 census? The Census Bureau needs to know one thing, and that is How many people lived at 126 Hickory Dip Road, Eastpoint, Florida in 2010? They are not entitled to any other information! It is way past time to cut the pork, and this is pork that needs to be cut! The citizens of America had better wake up and realize what is happening to America. In four more years, you will not recognize the America that you knew in 2008! Sincerely, Shirley N. Taylor Census Bureau snafus signs of the times Since the Times featured A good Egg in the last issue, several long-time residents have come forward with further memories of Herbert Brown, one of Eastpoints founding fathers. Susan Buzzett Clementson of Apalachicola remembers that his love of children extended beyond the east bank of the river. On Saturday mornings, Cathy Willis and I would sit and wait for him to come with the eggs and hed pick us up and carry us around town, she said. Hed pick up children all along the way and by the time he had sold all of the eggs, his wagon was full of children. Colley Watkins, also of Apalachicola, said Brown always carried two of the Tucker children from Eastpoint with him on his route as well, to give them something to do. Watkins said he was in the Lions Club with Brown. We called him Uncle Herbert, said Watkins. According to Watkins, the club started in Apalachicola and Brown was an early member. We would go from door-to-door selling mops and brooms (for charity). Uncle Herbert would always take the back alleys because he was used to delivering eggs there. Thats where the kitchen doors were. Wed get to the front door and theyd tell us Uncle Herbert had already been to the back door. He sold more mops and brooms than anybody.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, January 10, 2013 Special to the Times Since 1999, more than 170 law enforcement of cers in the United States have died and thousands injured in a crash as a result of being on the side of the roadway doing their job. During January, Florida Highway Patrol troopers will pay special attention to drivers violating the states Move Over law, which protects law enforcement ofcers, emergency workers and tow truck drivers who are stopped along Florida roadways doing their jobs. Floridas Move Over law was enacted to protect those trying to protect Floridas motorists, said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. Our troopers are out on the roadways every day working to reduce trafc crashes and fatalities. Motorists need to understand the Move Over law and abide by the law for everyones safety. Understanding Move Over Drivers must move over when a patrol car, emergency vehicle and/or tow truck is stopped on the side of a road with lights ashing. If they cannot move over safely, drivers shall slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit. Approach the emergency vehicle with caution. Violating the Move Over law puts motorists and public safety professionals at risk. Violating the Move Over law can result in a ne and points on your driver license record. In 2012, four Florida troopers were involved crashes that occurred on the shoulders and emergency lanes of Floridas roadways. Richard Guzman (Troop C, Hillsborough County) On Jan. 4, Guzman was completing a traf c crash investigation when a vehicle drove off the roadway and into the grass shoulder. The vehicle sideswiped Guzmans vehicle. Guzman was inside his patrol vehicle at the time of the crash. No injuries were involved. David Rodriguez (Troop D, Orange County) On Jan. 26, Rodriguez was parked in the inside emergency lane completing a traf c stop. The vehicle struck the rear of Rodriguezs motorcycle and Rodriguez then struck the hood and windshield of the vehicle. He is out of the hospital and continues to recover. He has not returned to work. Daniel Morley (Troop L, Palm Beach County) On Feb. 23, Morley was parked in the outside shoulder conducting a traf c stop when a vehicle veered off the roadway and struck Morley. He sustained minor injuries and is back to work. His in car video captured the incident. Felecia Andrews (Troop L, Broward County) On Dec. 28, Andrews was parked on the emergency lane working a crash. For unknown reasons, a vehicle was traveling northbound in the emergency lane. The vehicle struck the rear of Andrewss patrol vehicle causing a chain reaction of three other vehicles. She remains at Broward Health Medical Center in serious but stable condition with multiple injuries.

Local A6 | The Times Thursday, January 10, 2013 of cer dies at age 44, leaving behind a wife and seven children. With full honors accorded a veteran of service both in the Navy and the lawmans fraternity, Rhodes went to the heavenly home promised him by his Christian faith accompanied by the rare beauty of full-throated song and speech. He could be counted on to do his job, said Norred, speaking on behalf of Sheriff Skip Shiver, who was unable to attend. Quinnaland is one of us, the brotherhood of law enforcement of cers. He met all his assignments, whether he liked them or not, with a smile, Norred said. Franklin County has lost a good citizen and a good man. We will forever miss him, and we will always be there for his family. May you rest in peace, my brother. After the viewing, in which Rhodes was seen in the green deputys uniform he wore with honor, the home-going service commenced with two of cers, Sgt. Wayne Nash and Lt. Robert Shiver, anking the ag-draped cof n in front of the sanctuary. Presiding was Bishop Horace Solomon, with the invocation provided by Pastor Gary Reed of the St. Paul AME Church. The Old Testament reading of Isaiah 41: 10 and 13 was offered by Elder Thomas Webb, himself a lieutenant with the sheriffs of ce and an active pallbearer. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. The New Testament reading from Matthew 11: 28 was spoken by Elder James Pugh, also a sheriffs deputy. Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will nd rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. The community choir, comprising the nest voices from throughout the many churches that dot Apalachicolas Hill neighborhood, then offered the rst of its selections, with a solo of Go Tell Heaven by gospel recording artist Maxine Ray Kellogg. After Norreds remarks, Fonda Davis spoke on behalf of the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department, recalling how Rhodes had served the department for 14 years and had earned the status of a senior member. There will only be one Q, Davis said, standing not far from the re ghter helmet and axe propped up against the casket. Retired Sgt. Jim Watkins offered a lengthier, at times humorous, recollection of his days as Rhodes partner. He was my best friend, he said. He was one of the best partners anyone could ever ask for. We trusted each other. He told of his friends razor-sharp sense of humor. He had a knack for saying things nobody else could, Watkins said. Watkins told of how the two were once out on an early-morning stakeout, when it became clear bears soon could be nding their way to nearby garbage cans. Watkins asked his partner what he would do if a bear approached them. Just outrun you, Rhodes replied, without hesitation. Speaking to Rhodes reputation as an employee was Olivier Monod, owner of the realty company and St. George Island Inn and grocery for which Rhodes had worked for a decade and which helped launch his own maintenance service. Monod talked of his colleagues sharp mind, quality of heart and incredible work ethic. For Quinnaland, there were no problems, there were only solutions, Monod said. If everybody had his work ethic, there would be no crises in the world. Monod closed by reminding Rhodes family how much he treasured them. He was a family man, and we used to spend quite a bit of time talking, he said. I know how important his wife and children were to him. Donna Duncan, choking back tears, read her remarks on behalf of the Apalachicola High School Class of 1988. Quinnaland always had a smile on his face, she said. He was one of the most beautiful, kind and loving owers of all. We have lost you too soon. Her voice soft as fog on a chilly morning, soloist Angelita Stephens then sang Rhodes favorite song, Open My Heart, by Yolanda Adams. In the audience participation of the service, Eric Bryant, the arson investigator from the State Fire Marshals of ce who worked alongside Rhodes in investigating the May 2011 blaze at the Love Center Church, stepped forward. Also addressing the gathering was an Apalachicola woman who told of Rhodes kindness to her and her husband. You couldnt ask for a better neighbor or a more wonderful friend, she said. Tami Ray-Hutchinson read a list of resolutions and acknowledgments, including those from new Life church, St. Paul AME church, Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson, who declared Dec. 27, 2012, Quinnaland J. Rhodes Remembrance Day, and the county commission. The service came to a resounding nish with a ery eulogy from Solomon, who praised Rhodes service to God and community. If he wasnt on the job, he was on his way to the job. A very personable young man, very good-natured, he said. His works speak for themselves. In the end, what weve done for the Lord is going to speak for us. Solomon quoted extensively from the book of Daniel, in which the mysterious words Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin are written on the wall, indicating that all of ones deeds are weighed and counted in the eyes of heaven. Life goes by so fast we dont know when the Lord is going to call us, the pastor said. Dont wait till the partys over. We need to acknowledge God while we got the chance. Serve the Lord while you got a chance. Be good while you got a chance. With Sgt. Timothy Register, Sgt. Carlos Hill and Sgt. Anthony Croom joining Webb, Shiver and Nash as pallbearers, Rhodes casket was taken for burial at Magnolia Cemetery. There, ags from the casket were presented to Rhodes widow and to his mother, Iris Hamilton. The ascots worn by the of cers were given to Rhodes children. The Leon County Ri e team and Bugle Corps red off a 21-gun salute and played taps, with representatives of the Tallahassee Fire Department playing bagpipes. A fellowship repast for friends followed at the armory in downtown Apalachicola. The last poignant moment in Rhodes passing came when the sheriffs of ce offered a nal call through its dispatch on behalf of the brotherhood and sisterhood of rst responders, re ghters and law enforcement of cers. Renee Brannan, a spokeswoman for the sheriffs ofce, said when of cers start their shifts, they are asked for different codes, such as a 10-86, for the start of their tour of duty, and 10-87, for its end. What the tradition is you come across the radio and call for that of cer who is deceased. You call, and they dont answer, and you call again, and they dont answer, she said. This is the last call for Franklin 112, the call sounded. No response from Deputy Quinnaland Rhodes. Franklin 112 is out of service after 11 years and three months of service. Although you are gone, you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace our friend.

By LYNN SPOHRER Special to the Times Another Coombs relative has returned to his Apalachicola roots. Gerald Jerry Coombs of Tallahassee and wife, Tina, celebrated their 13th anniversary at the Coombs House Inn. Coombs is the descendant of James Nathaniel Coombs, builder of the historic inn. Jerry Coombs said he has just begun to seek out knowledge of his heritage and was thrilled to be able to visit Apalachicola and stay in the fully restored home, now an awardwinning inn. The Coombs house was the scene of a family tragedy. Built in 1906, just ve years later, it was partly destroyed by a re that resulted in the deaths of James and Maria Coombs within a month. Still some people believe J.N. Coombs lingers in his dream home. The couple stayed in the haunted suite where Coombs is said to caress the cheeks of lovely ladies sleeping in his bed. The family patriarch also is said to have appeared to the innkeeper in the dining room, warning her to board up the 100-year-old beveled glass windows before Hurricane Dennis. No visit would have been complete without paying homage to their long dead relatives, James and Maria Coombs, lying side by side in Chestnut Cemetery across the street from their beloved home. It was a wonderful experience, Jerry Coombs said. Ive been going by that place my whole life and always wanted to stay there. It exceeded our expectations. The whole area is wonderful, and I have been recommending it to everyone. Well be back. Dr. Nichols celebrates 90 years Dr. Photis Nichols celebrated his 90th birthday on Saturday with party thrown by his family at his home in Queens Harbor in Jacksonville.

This closure will give groups authorized by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission the opportunity to identify and retrieve lost and abandoned blue crab traps from the water. The January trap closure includes state waters from the Florida/Alabama state line through the Franklin/Wakulla county line. Waters of the Ochlockonee River and Bay are not included in this closure. Traps can be placed back in the water Jan. 15. Until then, blue crabs can be harvested with other gear, such as dip nets and fold-up traps. Harvesters also may use standard blue crab traps during the closure if the traps are attached to a dock or other private property. Lost and abandoned traps are a problem in the blue crab fishery, because they can continue to trap crabs and fish when left in the water. The closure is one of three regional, 10-day blue crab trap closures that will occur in 2013 on the Gulf coast of Florida. Coastal waters from Broward through Pasco counties will close to traps July 10-19, and waters from Hernando through Wakulla counties, including all waters of the Ochlockonee River and Bay, will close to traps July 20-29. There are six regional closures total: three in even-numbered years on the east coast and three in odd-numbered years on the west coast. BLUE CRAB TRAP CLOSURES WHO ARE THE CRABBERS? There are 16 blue crabbers in Franklin County in 2013, the same number as 2012. Statewide, there are 627 blue crabbers in 2013, and 648 in 2012. The following local individuals hold at least one of four blue crab endorsements, which can be for hardshell or softshell, and inshore or offshore. Grover E. Andrews Steve R. Boatwright Edwin C.

The T and powerlines area have been good this week and all the way up to the White City Brige area. Try using grubs and jigs to cover more ground if the bite slows down. Most area creeks and lakes are producing good numbers of bream and crappie. Before the New Year, cold weather increased the bite in Depot Creek and Howard Creek. Moving water on the big river and back waters have got the catfish biting again, but no news this week on the bass. Times Staff Report Friends of St. Joseph Bay Preserves members and guests are invited to attend the annual general Membership meeting on Saturday, Jan. 12, beginning at 11 a.m. EST at the Preserves Center.

Key item on the agenda is the nomination and election of the 2013 board of directors and a vote on a proposed amendment to the bylaws. Members will also receive a recap of 2012 accomplishments. The theme for 2013 is volunteerism. There are so many wonderful ideas that the board and staff wish to implement, but we need more people to step forward to help make these projects happen.

Currently serving on the board are Marcia Boothe, president; Charla Boggs, past president; John Ehrman, president-elect; Nick Baldwin; Bill Boothe; and Gene Cox.

The proposed slate of candidates for election to the board is William Sonny Cha n; Margaret Margo Posten; and Jody Wood-Putnam.

Chili Potluck: After the meeting, please join the Friends for a potluck chili luncheon, prepared by fellow Friends members and free to all attendees. There will be several chili recipes including vegetarian that range from mild to hot.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Preserves Center at (850) 229-1787. Its the commonest and most despised of owers, Taraxacum of cinale, the dandelion. The common name comes from the French phrase dents de leon or lions teeth and refers to the pointy jagged borders of the leaves. Dandelions are also regionally called blowball, faceclock and piss-a-beds. Dandelions were brought to the United States from Europe to provide food for honeybees, also an imported species. Now they have escaped and become established worldwide and are very dif cult to control. In turfgrass and ornamental plantings, this plant forms dense circular mats of leaves 6 to 14 inches in diameter that crowd out desirable species. Because of the extensive root system of established dandelions, hand-pulling or hoeing to remove them is usually futile unless done repeatedly over a long period of time. Once a few plants become established in turfgrass or ornamental areas, their seed can be spread several miles by wind or equipment. Solitary new dandelion plants should be removed root and all, before they produce seed. Monitor the area for several months to make sure removal was complete. Any portion of root left in the ground will produce a new plant over time. Areas with infestations should be isolated and seed heads removed until control can be accomplished. Spot applications of herbicides can be helpful. Dandelions do have their good points. Traditionally, they had a number of culinary and medicinal uses, and are used to make an herbal beer or wine in England and Canada. Young dandelion buds can be fried in butter and eaten; enthusiasts claim they taste like mushrooms. In salads, the taste of young leaves has been compared to chicory or endive. The yellow part of the ower can also be used to add color but the green sepals are very bitter. The Japanese make dandelion ower pickles. The root is also edible as a cooked vegetable like a parsnip and is said to be best in the spring.

Congratulations, Tyler! Congratulations, Tyler!

County Courthouse Annex. Sealed bids must be submitted by 4:00 pm EST, February 4th, 2013. The bids will be opened and read aloud publicly at the scheduled February 5th, 2013 Commission meeting. Franklin County reserves the right to wave any informalities or/and to reject any and all bids. BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS FRANKIN COUNTY, FLORIDA Cheryl Sanders, Chairman By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com The suspension of Seahawks basketball coach Mike Sweatt has been lifted and he is back at the helm of the boys basketball coach. In late December, referees of ciating at the contest at South Walton slapped the coach with a pair of technical fouls and then the FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) handed him a $500 ne and six-week suspension that would run until the end of the regular season. Sweatt said he had been wrongly accused of using profanity, and said he had merely questioned whether the ref had intended to blow the whistle on a foul, or whether it had been inadvertent. He provided several witness statements, including that of long-time scorekeeper Elinor Mount-Simmons, former coach Robert Revercomb and several Seahawk parents who said they had never heard any foul language from the coachs mouth. I never used profanity one time the entire game, said Sweatt. Once I turned in all the witness statements, when they went through everything, they said time served, the minimum $100 ne and I have to take a class on basic coaching philosophy, which I did Monday at 3 a.m. Sweatt was back on the job Tuesday, in time to coach for the Liberty County game that evening. Assistant coach Jeremy Williams handled the task of coaching the Seahawks during the post-Christmas Battle on the Gulf holiday tournament. The winner of the boys tourney was Wewahitchka, which triumphed in the nal over Madison County Dec. 29. That victory was somewhat of a surprise, since Madison had won its opener over Wewa by 20 points. The girls tournament was won by Faith Baptist Christian Academy. The Seahawks lost their opener to Tallavanna Christian 73-71. Turnovers at the end and team break down, killed us and miscommunication, said Sweatt. The Hawks were then overwhelmed by Madison 74-32. The Hawks recovered to triumph over Tallavanna 67-65 on Dec. 29. Next year, were going to start recruiting teams in February, said Sweatt. On Tuesday night, Franklin County fell 55-51 at Liberty County We were down at one time in the rst half by as much as 16. We came out at and turned the ball over way to much, said Sweatt. We ended up having 26 turnovers and missed 16 free throws. Despite these errors, the Hawks managed to tie the game at 51 with under two minutes left to play, and possession of the ball. But the Hawks turned the ball over under their own basket, and the Bulldogs seized the opportunity by notching a lay-up. Franklin County then missed several lay-up attempts in a row, and was forced to foul to stop the clock. Liberty County made the rst foul shot to go up by three, but missed the second. Liberty County snared the offensive rebound, forcing the Hawks to again foul. The Bulldog shooter made one of two from the charity stripe and with just three seconds left, there was not enough time for the Hawks to get off a shot. Sweatt said he sat both Carza Harvey and Direek Farmer the second half, for what he considered poor attitudes and a failure to show suf cient interest in the game. That hurt us, not having our starting point guard in the game, said the coach. Sweatt said senior Skyler Hutchinson played superb defense down the stretch and made some crucial shots to help the Hawks crawl back into the game. The Hawks boys and girls teams are in action tonight at home against South Walton High School, and then on Friday the girls play at home against John Paul II High School. On Tuesday, the girls and boys teams host Blountstown High School.

After listening to a series of concerns led by Apalachicola resident Jim Philyaw, city commissioners voted unanimously to have City Attorney Pat Floyd attend Monday nights Planning and Zoning meeting, where the matter is expected to be on the agenda. For the last few months Ive been concerned, Philyaw told commissioners. I keep hearing that the Family Dollar store is going to build an outlet across from my house. Philyaw, who said he had spent a number of years as a member of P&Z when the comprehensive plan was rst approved several years ago, questioned whether P&Z had acted properly when it rst granted the project a tentative go-ahead in April 2012. Though Philyaw said much of his knowledge on the matter had been gleaned second-hand, from talk on the street, he provided evidence to suggest P&Z lacked the authority to give the project its blessing, because the department store did not fall under the many possible special exceptions allowed in C-3 areas under the terms of the comp plans land-use element.

At their Jan. 2 meeting, Solid Waste Director Fonda Davis told county commissioners the county received only a single response to a request for bids to operate the solid waste transfer station at the county land ll. He said that after he requested a bid from Waste Pro of Midway because it had bid on the contract in the past, the company replied they were not interested in the contract. Davis said Waste Management, Inc. of Panama City, which currently holds the contract to operate the station, bid $57.95 per ton of waste. This is about a 25 percent increase over the $46.29 per ton fee charged by Waste Management for the last ve years. The board voted unanimously for Davis and his staff to continue negotiations with Waste Management, in hopes of getting the company to lower its fees. Waste Management disposes of household waste, but not recyclables or construction waste, for the county. The county currently charges a tipping fee of $46.55 per ton to accept household waste. The difference between this and what the county has to pay for disposal, 26 cents per ton, partially pays for the operation of the land ll. A representative of the Clerk of Courts of ce said the current fee does not totally cover the cost of operating the land ll even with additional revenue from recycling and construction waste. Waste Managements current agreement with the county ends on March 10. The county had the option to extend the current contract with Waste Management for ve additional years. At the Oct. 16, 2012 meeting, Davis asked the commissioners for permission to negotiate to extend the contract but commissioners voted unanimously to terminate Waste Managements agreement and request bids because the county was losing money on land ll operations. In a telephone interview, Davis said Waste Management could have increased rates even if the contract had been extended. He said the change initially will affect only the land ll tipping fee, but it could also eventually drive up commercial and residential garbage fees in Apalachicola and other parts of the county.Tipping fees at land ll to increase FONDA DAVIS

This proposal is for 44 parking places. None of them (special exceptions) even come close. Philyaw said the matter should have been referred to the board of adjustment to see whether a variance could be granted. It is my understanding that this was never done, he said. Philyaw said he became concerned about what was happening with the 1.16acre lot, just east of the Best Western Motel, when he noticed trees on the property had been tagged for removal. There must be something going on, he said. As a citizen, I fully expect the city commission and their appointed board to toe the mark and follow the dictates of the ordnance. Its a residential neighborhood; there are uses permitted by the ordinance. What I would like to do is see us clear the air about this. City Administrator Betty Taylor-Webb responded to Philyaws concerns by outlining the process that began when the Family Dollars developer, Brett Woodward, came before P&Z on April 9, 2012. She said Woodward had come to ask questions about appropriate signage, and that P&Z had approved the smallest signs and said the project was consistent with the C-3 district. The vote in each case was unanimous, 5-0. Taylor-Webb said Family Dollar moved forward on the project, including buying the property, but in November, after P&Z told the developers they would have to go through the special exception process, the matter was turned over to Floyd. Its on the agenda for the Jan. 14 meeting. At this point I dont know which way theyre going to go, she said. What P&Z did is read the intent of the zoned area. Special exceptions go through P&Z, but it doesnt fall in that category. Floyd tried to avoid a detailed discussion of the legal arguments that might ensue, stressing that it was premature to have the city commission weigh in on the matter. The proper procedure is that P&Z is still handling this matter, and they should handle this matter before it comes to this particular board. The city attorney said he had received a letter from the Family Dollars legal counsel asking about the status of the stores application. Sufce it to say there was a representation made to P&Z, and P&Z analyzed it and came to the conclusion it was in compliance, and then a letter was sent to this company. What they (Family Dollar) may be doing now may be different than what they represented to P&Z. Family Dollar has told the city it bought the property after receiving the letter from the city, Floyd said. Two wrongs dont make a right, said Geoff Hewell, a P&Z member in the audience. Thats the way we left it, that they needed a special exception. We didnt approve anything; the only thing we approved that I know of is the signage, the size of the sign. We did say in our opinion that was allowed. Floyd said the meetings minutes suggested the goahead went further than just signage. The minutes of the meeting say they discussed the use, and theres a determination that this use was consistent with (the zoning), he said. Floyd said Philyaw could make an appeal to the city regarding the P&Z action, but it remained unclear as to whether such an appeal now, nine months after P&Zs actions, was within the required time frame. Taylor-Webb said she had received two other letters from citizens concerned about the project. Floyd touched on the legal implications of challenging the project now. After the horse gets out of the barn, there are certain things that cannot be reversed without damage, without problems, he said. Whenever a government entity acts, rightly or wrongly, and theres justiable reliance by a private citizen, thats a principle of law. The question is does this situation t within that principle? Commissioner Frank Cook said there might be other options available to the city outside of rescinding P&Zs original determination. We may be fortunate that were at the point that we are, he said. The project is not completed. There are other hoops that need to be gone though. At some point we may nd that the project doesnt work. All they were given was the idea that their project they intended to do t the outline of the things we said they could do, Cook said. Floyd supported that perspective. Thats what I want to give P&Z the opportunity to do, he said. Size, clearing, draining, etc., any one of which may be a problem. You have to go through the right procedures to do all this. Philyaw closed by reminding the city commissioners they needed to adhere closely to their rules. Somebody dropped the candy in the sand, he said. Were right at point zero. Weve got to start over in this process. Plein air is French term that translates simply to open air. John Constable, a 19th century English artist whose paintings bring hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction, encouraged artists to forget about formulas and trust their own vision in nding truth in nature. Around that time, a group of artists in France focused on capturing everyday life and the natural world surrounding it. Plein air established the foundation for what became the Impressionist movement. Plein air paintings are done on location, capturing the atmosphere of the movement, something of a photograph on canvas with brushwork, with little to no work in the studio. Last year, 20 nationally known artists gathered for Americas Great Plein Air Paint-out, setting up easels to document the landscape and culture of the Forgotten Coast, considered the last vestige of Old Florida. The event included ve exhibits across the Forgotten Coasts, daily artist demonstrations, two workshops, art sales and a series of public receptions. Many local artists gather and paint alongside the events invited artists; it is amazing to see the art being created, said Joe Taylor, organizer of last years paint-out. The FCCC is a nonprot established to produce regional multicommunity cultural events and coordinates the paint-out among communities such as Mexico Beach, WindMark Beach, Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Apalachicola, Eastpoint, St. George Island, Carrabelle, SummerCamp and Alligator Point. Support also comes from a host of private sponsors as well as the tourist development councils of Gulf and Franklin counties. FAMILY DOLLAR from page A1the status of the ve areas the OPC is protesting from the PSCs August rate case decision. Customer testimony will be taken Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the St. George Island rehouse, 324 E. Pine Ave., beginning at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. The OPC has said the following ve major issues addressed in OPCs testimony are critically important to customers: the use of utility money advanced for non-utility purposes, the increased service availability charges, the remaining $153,000 balance on the gain-on-sale issue, the past rate case expense and the current protest rate case expense. Martin Friedman, an attorney for WMS, has said the issues raised by OPC either can be worked out amicably or constitute little more than an unfair attack, particularly when it comes to allegations that the company took money out of customer revenue. Its all smoke and mirrors; its a red herring, he said. Its the biggest red herring argument you can imagine. Sayler has said $1.2 million in monies advanced for non-utility purposes should be titled in the utilitys name, and the company should be prevented from advancing funds to anyone not related to utility operations. They also want a thorough review of the salary drawn by President Gene Brown and to have the PSC reject any attempt to restore it in its entirety. The OPC also objects to increased tap-in fees for new customers and wants to revisit the amount of the increased charge during the true-up phase for the new groundwater storage tank. The OPC wants the PSC to order WMS to escrow service availability charges, as had been the case in past years. The OPC also is seeking to learn why WMS stopped paying its attorneys in the last rate case and is asking that some or all of this previously approved rate case expense be removed. Lastly, the OPC wants the PSC to allow only reasonable rate case expenses in this current case. PLEIN AIR from page A1 RATE HIKE from page A1

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.comThursday, January 10, 2013 APage 4SectionSpecial to the TimesOne of the revelations that surfaced from the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre was that deranged gunman, Adam Lanza, carried hundreds of rounds of ammunition, enough to kill all 450 children in the school. What stopped him? Apparently he decided to kill himself when he heard police sirens and knew that the of cers were nearing the scene and their guns would soon confront his. They say it takes a gun to stop a gun. Besides suggesting a possible solution, not heretofore considered, of having a recording of sirens approaching on some external sound system to frighten away those committing crimes on school grounds, why not give teachers and others assigned care of the children, the right to protect their students if they wish it? Just one gun somewhere on the premises could have been enough. Lanza had 10 minutes of unrestrained killing time before police arrived after 911 noti cation and before he took his life, ending the massacre. If but one armed concealed weapons permit holder had been nearby, he or she could have saved perhaps eight minutes of indiscriminate slaughter. How many lives is that? This is not to suggest that every teacher must participate, only those who wish to. Hundreds of regular citizens in my county already carry concealed weapons everywhere except in gun-free zones. Such is the same in most counties throughout the nation. Law enforcement normally sees them as an asset, the ultimate backup should they need extra help, and because cops know they cant be everywhere at the same time, as Sandy Hook demonstrated. Why not let them do so on school grounds as well, allowing them to be an asset of protection wherever they are? It would cost the school nothing. Chances are every school already has two or three concealed weapons permit holders among its faculty and staff now. Again, why not let those who wish to protect their students do so? Permit holders are among our nest citizens. Obtaining a concealed weapons permit requires a thorough investigation, a near perfect record from law enforcement, a stated need to carry, and some training. Normally they are older more mature folks and, in the case of teachers, we already trust our children with them. They are already on the scene where a policeman could not possibly be. What a deterrent to a would-be killer if he knew schools are no longer entirely gun free. Gun free zones clearly do not work. They certainly do not keep killers away. Most massacres in the United States happen in gunfree zones. Killers, anticipating no resistance, are not deterred but enticed, given access to large groups of unprotected, good, and innocent victims often children. Presently the only hope a teacher has who wishes to protect his or her students, is to hide them and at Sandy Hook that helped a few. In my classroom, as in most, there is but one door. Everyone inside, including me, has been set up by his own government to be a victim. In my classroom the door cannot be locked from inside should I hear gun re outside. There is a small back room (often kept locked by the school because it houses sensitive computer wiring connections) where students nearby could hide if they had access and time. Hopefully a potential gunman would then think no one was inside and move on to another classroom. But this is not enough. Since Sandy Hook happened, I ask students sitting on the door side of the room, upon hearing gun re from outside the room, to line up next to the wall, remove the re extinguisher from the wall next to a door that opens outwardly, and spray or hit the intruder as he enters. Those behind him then overwhelm the intruder after the distraction. But this is all that I can do and it is not enough. Since my students are adults this might work. Better yet, a teacher or student with a concealed weapons permit, need only pull out a weapon from pocket or purse and re a couple of rounds at a very surprised, then very dead, killer. Elected of cials, please give students and teachers a ghting chance to survive. Teachers have done nothing that should justify disarming us, or fearing us, and thus leaving us with virtually no hope of survival. You may answer, We cant just let anyone have a weapon of mass destruction! You already do. Anyone, 16 and older, can have access to an automobile, which is decidedly a weapon of mass destruction, even if he might commit crimes with it. This brings us back to the lessons of Sandy Hook. Adam Lanza did his deed in a location that he knew was gun free and ceased his rampage of killing only because someone else, in this case the police, would soon be ring at him. Next time, let that person be a teacher with a concealed weapon whose action would allow so many more students to live. Please.

HAROLD PEASEThe American Library Associations Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC) sponsors an award each year called the Newbery Medal, named for 18th-century British bookseller John Newbery. It is awarded annually to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Carrie Kienzle, former library director for the Irving, Texas school system and now full-time resident of Apalachicola, is a member of the 2013 Newbery Medal Selection Committee. After she has reviewed the books about 200 of them all published in 2012 for readers up to age 14 she is free to give the copies away, and this year they are all coming to the Apalachicola Municipal Library as their permanent home. The books, however, will be taking a short detour to the Franklin County School, through an arrangement with the librarians, Patty Creamer and Carol Davis, to be viewed and checked out through the school library. We hope to have them there by the end of January to coincide with the announcement of the 2013 Newbery winners. This will hopefully show young readers in Franklin County they have a library in Apalachicola they can use as well as the two county library branches in Eastpoint and Carrabelle for exciting recreational reading. The Apalachicola library often feels its junior collections, including a large Young Adult (860 titles) are not as wellutilized by junior readers in the county. Carrie donated most of these while a member of the Michael L. Printz Medal Committee for YA literature. Titles being considered by the Newbery Committee are secret until the award is announced, but they include books by very well-known authors in fantasy; gritty contemporary plots with teen protagonists; gentle tales of small town life with dogs; and even graphic novels. Lots of variety is ensured by the nomination of many new talented authors, but you will have to wait to know who. Visit www.ala.org/alsc/ awardsgrants/bookmedia to learn more. While the Apalachicola Municipal Library has not quite nished its automation project, and rolled out an AML website, it is still accessible online.

To reach her, call 653-8436. @THE LIBRARY Caty GreeneLibrary, school share Newbery Medal contenders I received a telephone call this past Saturday, Jan. 5 from the U.S. Census Bureau. The woman calling asked why I had not returned to them the NEW census form recently sent to me in the mail. I informed her that I had not received a new form. She explained that there was a snafu with physical addresses and post of ce box addresses, and the postmaster general had refused to deliver those letters sent to a post of ce box. She said she could take my information over the phone, but I refused this offer and told her I thought that this telephone call was some sort of scam to get my personal information. She assured me that this was no scam, and she then gave me a telephone number to call to verify that she was who she said she was. I called this number and ascertained that she was from the U.S. Census Bureau. I informed the second woman I spoke with that I had complied with the Census Bureau in 2010 by lling out their form and returning it in a timely manner, and I did not feel it was necessary to complete another census form. She then told me that it did not matter that I had completed and returned this form in 2010, it was mandatory that I must once again ll out this form and return it to her. I asked her who had thought up this little caper, and she replied that it was the U.S. Congress. My rst question is why must I once again ll out a new census form? My second question is why is the Census Bureau still working on the 2010 census when the census was completed in 2010? Because the of cial census was taken in 2010, there would be no relevancy in census information given in 2013. This brings me to the conclusion that our government is creating jobs for certain individuals, and these individuals are working on Saturdays and Sundays and getting paid overtime to do so! What a ripoff! To pay individuals working for the Census Bureau overtime to inform American citizens that they must ll out another census form is a terrible misuse of taxpayers money! Why dont they go after the people who did not comply with the 2010 census? The Census Bureau needs to know one thing, and that is How many people lived at 126 Hickory Dip Road, Eastpoint, Florida in 2010? They are not entitled to any other information! It is way past time to cut the pork, and this is pork that needs to be cut! The citizens of America had better wake up and realize what is happening to America. In four more years, you will not recognize the America that you knew in 2008! Sincerely, Shirley N. TaylorCensus Bureau snafus signs of the timesSince the Times featured A good Egg in the last issue, several long-time residents have come forward with further memories of Herbert Brown, one of Eastpoints founding fathers. Susan Buzzett Clementson of Apalachicola remembers that his love of children extended beyond the east bank of the river. On Saturday mornings, Cathy Willis and I would sit and wait for him to come with the eggs and hed pick us up and carry us around town, she said. Hed pick up children all along the way and by the time he had sold all of the eggs, his wagon was full of children. Colley Watkins, also of Apalachicola, said Brown always carried two of the Tucker children from Eastpoint with him on his route as well, to give them something to do. Watkins said he was in the Lions Club with Brown. We called him Uncle Herbert, said Watkins. According to Watkins, the club started in Apalachicola and Brown was an early member. We would go from door-to-door selling mops and brooms (for charity). Uncle Herbert would always take the back alleys because he was used to delivering eggs there. Thats where the kitchen doors were. Wed get to the front door and theyd tell us Uncle Herbert had already been to the back door. He sold more mops and brooms than anybody.

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, January 10, 2013Special to the TimesSince 1999, more than 170 law enforcement of cers in the United States have died and thousands injured in a crash as a result of being on the side of the roadway doing their job. During January, Florida Highway Patrol troopers will pay special attention to drivers violating the states Move Over law, which protects law enforcement ofcers, emergency workers and tow truck drivers who are stopped along Florida roadways doing their jobs. Floridas Move Over law was enacted to protect those trying to protect Floridas motorists, said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. Our troopers are out on the roadways every day working to reduce trafc crashes and fatalities. Motorists need to understand the Move Over law and abide by the law for everyones safety.Understanding Move Over Drivers must move over when a patrol car, emergency vehicle and/or tow truck is stopped on the side of a road with lights ashing. If they cannot move over safely, drivers shall slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit. Approach the emergency vehicle with caution. Violating the Move Over law puts motorists and public safety professionals at risk. Violating the Move Over law can result in a ne and points on your driver license record. In 2012, four Florida troopers were involved crashes that occurred on the shoulders and emergency lanes of Floridas roadways. Richard Guzman (Troop C, Hillsborough County) On Jan. 4, Guzman was completing a traf c crash investigation when a vehicle drove off the roadway and into the grass shoulder. The vehicle sideswiped Guzmans vehicle. Guzman was inside his patrol vehicle at the time of the crash. No injuries were involved. David Rodriguez (Troop D, Orange County) On Jan. 26, Rodriguez was parked in the inside emergency lane completing a traf c stop. The vehicle struck the rear of Rodriguezs motorcycle and Rodriguez then struck the hood and windshield of the vehicle. He is out of the hospital and continues to recover. He has not returned to work. Daniel Morley (Troop L, Palm Beach County) On Feb. 23, Morley was parked in the outside shoulder conducting a traf c stop when a vehicle veered off the roadway and struck Morley. He sustained minor injuries and is back to work. His in car video captured the incident. Felecia Andrews (Troop L, Broward County) On Dec. 28, Andrews was parked on the emergency lane working a crash. For unknown reasons, a vehicle was traveling northbound in the emergency lane. The vehicle struck the rear of Andrewss patrol vehicle causing a chain reaction of three other vehicles. She remains at Broward Health Medical Center in serious but stable condition with multiple injuries.

LocalA6 | The Times Thursday, January 10, 2013 of cer dies at age 44, leaving behind a wife and seven children. With full honors accorded a veteran of service both in the Navy and the lawmans fraternity, Rhodes went to the heavenly home promised him by his Christian faith accompanied by the rare beauty of full-throated song and speech. He could be counted on to do his job, said Norred, speaking on behalf of Sheriff Skip Shiver, who was unable to attend. Quinnaland is one of us, the brotherhood of law enforcement of cers. He met all his assignments, whether he liked them or not, with a smile, Norred said. Franklin County has lost a good citizen and a good man. We will forever miss him, and we will always be there for his family. May you rest in peace, my brother. After the viewing, in which Rhodes was seen in the green deputys uniform he wore with honor, the home-going service commenced with two of cers, Sgt. Wayne Nash and Lt. Robert Shiver, anking the ag-draped cof n in front of the sanctuary. Presiding was Bishop Horace Solomon, with the invocation provided by Pastor Gary Reed of the St. Paul AME Church. The Old Testament reading of Isaiah 41: 10 and 13 was offered by Elder Thomas Webb, himself a lieutenant with the sheriffs of ce and an active pallbearer. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. The New Testament reading from Matthew 11: 28 was spoken by Elder James Pugh, also a sheriffs deputy. Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will nd rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. The community choir, comprising the nest voices from throughout the many churches that dot Apalachicolas Hill neighborhood, then offered the rst of its selections, with a solo of Go Tell Heaven by gospel recording artist Maxine Ray Kellogg. After Norreds remarks, Fonda Davis spoke on behalf of the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department, recalling how Rhodes had served the department for 14 years and had earned the status of a senior member. There will only be one Q, Davis said, standing not far from the re ghter helmet and axe propped up against the casket. Retired Sgt. Jim Watkins offered a lengthier, at times humorous, recollection of his days as Rhodes partner. He was my best friend, he said. He was one of the best partners anyone could ever ask for. We trusted each other. He told of his friends razor-sharp sense of humor. He had a knack for saying things nobody else could, Watkins said. Watkins told of how the two were once out on an early-morning stakeout, when it became clear bears soon could be nding their way to nearby garbage cans. Watkins asked his partner what he would do if a bear approached them. Just outrun you, Rhodes replied, without hesitation. Speaking to Rhodes reputation as an employee was Olivier Monod, owner of the realty company and St. George Island Inn and grocery for which Rhodes had worked for a decade and which helped launch his own maintenance service. Monod talked of his colleagues sharp mind, quality of heart and incredible work ethic. For Quinnaland, there were no problems, there were only solutions, Monod said. If everybody had his work ethic, there would be no crises in the world. Monod closed by reminding Rhodes family how much he treasured them. He was a family man, and we used to spend quite a bit of time talking, he said. I know how important his wife and children were to him. Donna Duncan, choking back tears, read her remarks on behalf of the Apalachicola High School Class of 1988. Quinnaland always had a smile on his face, she said. He was one of the most beautiful, kind and loving owers of all. We have lost you too soon. Her voice soft as fog on a chilly morning, soloist Angelita Stephens then sang Rhodes favorite song, Open My Heart, by Yolanda Adams. In the audience participation of the service, Eric Bryant, the arson investigator from the State Fire Marshals of ce who worked alongside Rhodes in investigating the May 2011 blaze at the Love Center Church, stepped forward. Also addressing the gathering was an Apalachicola woman who told of Rhodes kindness to her and her husband. You couldnt ask for a better neighbor or a more wonderful friend, she said. Tami Ray-Hutchinson read a list of resolutions and acknowledgments, including those from new Life church, St. Paul AME church, Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson, who declared Dec. 27, 2012, Quinnaland J. Rhodes Remembrance Day, and the county commission. The service came to a resounding nish with a ery eulogy from Solomon, who praised Rhodes service to God and community. If he wasnt on the job, he was on his way to the job. A very personable young man, very good-natured, he said. His works speak for themselves. In the end, what weve done for the Lord is going to speak for us. Solomon quoted extensively from the book of Daniel, in which the mysterious words Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin are written on the wall, indicating that all of ones deeds are weighed and counted in the eyes of heaven. Life goes by so fast we dont know when the Lord is going to call us, the pastor said. Dont wait till the partys over. We need to acknowledge God while we got the chance. Serve the Lord while you got a chance. Be good while you got a chance. With Sgt. Timothy Register, Sgt. Carlos Hill and Sgt. Anthony Croom joining Webb, Shiver and Nash as pallbearers, Rhodes casket was taken for burial at Magnolia Cemetery. There, ags from the casket were presented to Rhodes widow and to his mother, Iris Hamilton. The ascots worn by the of cers were given to Rhodes children. The Leon County Ri e team and Bugle Corps red off a 21-gun salute and played taps, with representatives of the Tallahassee Fire Department playing bagpipes. A fellowship repast for friends followed at the armory in downtown Apalachicola. The last poignant moment in Rhodes passing came when the sheriffs of ce offered a nal call through its dispatch on behalf of the brotherhood and sisterhood of rst responders, re ghters and law enforcement of cers. Renee Brannan, a spokeswoman for the sheriffs ofce, said when of cers start their shifts, they are asked for different codes, such as a 10-86, for the start of their tour of duty, and 10-87, for its end. What the tradition is you come across the radio and call for that of cer who is deceased. You call, and they dont answer, and you call again, and they dont answer, she said. This is the last call for Franklin 112, the call sounded. No response from Deputy Quinnaland Rhodes. Franklin 112 is out of service after 11 years and three months of service. Although you are gone, you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace our friend.

Gerald Jerry Coombs of Tallahassee and wife, Tina, celebrated their 13th anniversary at the Coombs House Inn. Coombs is the descendant of James Nathaniel Coombs, builder of the historic inn. Jerry Coombs said he has just begun to seek out knowledge of his heritage and was thrilled to be able to visit Apalachicola and stay in the fully restored home, now an awardwinning inn. The Coombs house was the scene of a family tragedy. Built in 1906, just ve years later, it was partly destroyed by a re that resulted in the deaths of James and Maria Coombs within a month. Still some people believe J.N. Coombs lingers in his dream home. The couple stayed in the haunted suite where Coombs is said to caress the cheeks of lovely ladies sleeping in his bed. The family patriarch also is said to have appeared to the innkeeper in the dining room, warning her to board up the 100-year-old beveled glass windows before Hurricane Dennis. No visit would have been complete without paying homage to their long dead relatives, James and Maria Coombs, lying side by side in Chestnut Cemetery across the street from their beloved home. It was a wonderful experience, Jerry Coombs said. Ive been going by that place my whole life and always wanted to stay there. It exceeded our expectations. The whole area is wonderful, and I have been recommending it to everyone. Well be back.Dr. Nichols celebrates 90 yearsDr. Photis Nichols celebrated his 90th birthday on Saturday with party thrown by his family at his home in Queens Harbor in Jacksonville. Nichols, who was born Jan. 6, 1923, in Apalachicola, served as the towns family physician for more than 50 years, before he relocated to Jacksonville a decade ago. He continues to practice medicine as a volunteer with the Volunteers in Medicine program in downtown Jacksonville.

This closure will give groups authorized by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission the opportunity to identify and retrieve lost and abandoned blue crab traps from the water. The January trap closure includes state waters from the Florida/Alabama state line through the Franklin/Wakulla county line. Waters of the Ochlockonee River and Bay are not included in this closure. Traps can be placed back in the water Jan. 15. Until then, blue crabs can be harvested with other gear, such as dip nets and fold-up traps. Harvesters also may use standard blue crab traps during the closure if the traps are attached to a dock or other private property. Lost and abandoned traps are a problem in the blue crab fishery, because they can continue to trap crabs and fish when left in the water. The closure is one of three regional, 10-day blue crab trap closures that will occur in 2013 on the Gulf coast of Florida. Coastal waters from Broward through Pasco counties will close to traps July 10-19, and waters from Hernando through Wakulla counties, including all waters of the Ochlockonee River and Bay, will close to traps July 20-29. There are six regional closures total: three in even-numbered years on the east coast and three in odd-numbered years on the west coast. BLUE CRAB TRAP CLOSURES WHO ARE THE CRABBERS?There are 16 blue crabbers in Franklin County in 2013, the same number as 2012. Statewide, there are 627 blue crabbers in 2013, and 648 in 2012. The following local individuals hold at least one of four blue crab endorsements, which can be for hardshell or softshell, and inshore or offshore. Grover E. Andrews Steve R. Boatwright Edwin C.

The T and powerlines area have been good this week and all the way up to the White City Brige area. Try using grubs and jigs to cover more ground if the bite slows down. Most area creeks and lakes are producing good numbers of bream and crappie. Before the New Year, cold weather increased the bite in Depot Creek and Howard Creek. Moving water on the big river and back waters have got the catfish biting again, but no news this week on the bass.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Preserves Center at (850) 229-1787. Its the commonest and most despised of owers, Taraxacum of cinale, the dandelion. The common name comes from the French phrase dents de leon or lions teeth and refers to the pointy jagged borders of the leaves. Dandelions are also regionally called blowball, faceclock and piss-a-beds. Dandelions were brought to the United States from Europe to provide food for honeybees, also an imported species. Now they have escaped and become established worldwide and are very dif cult to control. In turfgrass and ornamental plantings, this plant forms dense circular mats of leaves 6 to 14 inches in diameter that crowd out desirable species. Because of the extensive root system of established dandelions, hand-pulling or hoeing to remove them is usually futile unless done repeatedly over a long period of time. Once a few plants become established in turfgrass or ornamental areas, their seed can be spread several miles by wind or equipment. Solitary new dandelion plants should be removed root and all, before they produce seed. Monitor the area for several months to make sure removal was complete. Any portion of root left in the ground will produce a new plant over time. Areas with infestations should be isolated and seed heads removed until control can be accomplished. Spot applications of herbicides can be helpful. Dandelions do have their good points. Traditionally, they had a number of culinary and medicinal uses, and are used to make an herbal beer or wine in England and Canada. Young dandelion buds can be fried in butter and eaten; enthusiasts claim they taste like mushrooms. In salads, the taste of young leaves has been compared to chicory or endive. The yellow part of the ower can also be used to add color but the green sepals are very bitter. The Japanese make dandelion ower pickles. The root is also edible as a cooked vegetable like a parsnip and is said to be best in the spring.

Gulfside IGA PLAYER OF THE WEEK SPONSORFranklin County eighth grader Tyler Howard played the entire second half Tuesday night against Liberty County as point guard. Coach Mike Sweatt said Howard played great defense all evening and hit a crucial three-point shot to help in the Seahawks last-minute run, which knotted the game at 51 with under two minutes left to play, before falling 55-51.Congratulations, Tyler!

Franklin County reserves the right to wave any informalities or/and to reject any and all bids.BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS FRANKIN COUNTY, FLORIDA Cheryl Sanders, Chairman By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com The suspension of Seahawks basketball coach Mike Sweatt has been lifted and he is back at the helm of the boys basketball coach. In late December, referees of ciating at the contest at South Walton slapped the coach with a pair of technical fouls and then the FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) handed him a $500 ne and six-week suspension that would run until the end of the regular season. Sweatt said he had been wrongly accused of using profanity, and said he had merely questioned whether the ref had intended to blow the whistle on a foul, or whether it had been inadvertent. He provided several witness statements, including that of long-time scorekeeper Elinor Mount-Simmons, former coach Robert Revercomb and several Seahawk parents who said they had never heard any foul language from the coachs mouth. I never used profanity one time the entire game, said Sweatt. Once I turned in all the witness statements, when they went through everything, they said time served, the minimum $100 ne and I have to take a class on basic coaching philosophy, which I did Monday at 3 a.m. Sweatt was back on the job Tuesday, in time to coach for the Liberty County game that evening. Assistant coach Jeremy Williams handled the task of coaching the Seahawks during the post-Christmas Battle on the Gulf holiday tournament. The winner of the boys tourney was Wewahitchka, which triumphed in the nal over Madison County Dec. 29. That victory was somewhat of a surprise, since Madison had won its opener over Wewa by 20 points. The girls tournament was won by Faith Baptist Christian Academy. The Seahawks lost their opener to Tallavanna Christian 73-71. Turnovers at the end and team break down, killed us and miscommunication, said Sweatt. The Hawks were then overwhelmed by Madison 74-32. The Hawks recovered to triumph over Tallavanna 67-65 on Dec. 29. Next year, were going to start recruiting teams in February, said Sweatt. On Tuesday night, Franklin County fell 55-51 at Liberty County We were down at one time in the rst half by as much as 16. We came out at and turned the ball over way to much, said Sweatt. We ended up having 26 turnovers and missed 16 free throws. Despite these errors, the Hawks managed to tie the game at 51 with under two minutes left to play, and possession of the ball. But the Hawks turned the ball over under their own basket, and the Bulldogs seized the opportunity by notching a lay-up. Franklin County then missed several lay-up attempts in a row, and was forced to foul to stop the clock. Liberty County made the rst foul shot to go up by three, but missed the second. Liberty County snared the offensive rebound, forcing the Hawks to again foul. The Bulldog shooter made one of two from the charity stripe and with just three seconds left, there was not enough time for the Hawks to get off a shot. Sweatt said he sat both Carza Harvey and Direek Farmer the second half, for what he considered poor attitudes and a failure to show suf cient interest in the game. That hurt us, not having our starting point guard in the game, said the coach. Sweatt said senior Skyler Hutchinson played superb defense down the stretch and made some crucial shots to help the Hawks crawl back into the game. The Hawks boys and girls teams are in action tonight at home against South Walton High School, and then on Friday the girls play at home against John Paul II High School. On Tuesday, the girls and boys teams host Blountstown High School.
