By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com As the Franklin County School District weigh options for nding $600,000 in savings, just to break even, several employees have announced their decisions to either retire or quit voluntarily. Third grade teacher Paula Dykes and middle school math teacher Paul Marxsen both announced their departures, Jan. 14 and 22, respectively. In addition, among several other voluntary retirements within both teaching and non-teaching ranks, the district has ended its use of a tutor with the Virtual School online language courses, and terminated a teacher who had been removed from the classroom in May 2012 for an incident in which he had dealt with a student in an aggressive and physical manner. Dykes, who was in the states delayed retirement program after a long career teaching here, decided to leave before completing her last year in the program. Her students were reassigned to the remaining third grade teachers: Pam Schaffer, Marvin Boyd, Jeannie Ford and Cathy Creamer. Marxsen, a certi ed public accountant, resigned to return to his CPA practice in Carrabelle. He had been teaching algebra and math remediation courses. These have been picked up by Kassi Malcolm, who teaches eight grade algebra, and math coach Dale Millender, with the remediation classes reabsorbed into other classes. The change in the middle school math department follows the resignation at years end of Melonie Inzetta, who returned to a teaching position with the Florida Department of Corrections. Her sixth and seventh grade math classes have been picked up by Mike Emerson, who teaches ESE inclusion by working with special ed students in addition to their regular classroom teachers. A former Apalachicola High School teacher, Robert Coursey, who had been handling a part-time foreman role in the transportation department, retired as of Dec. 31, 2013. The position held by Maria Revercomb, who had worked on Tuesdays and Thursdays as a Spanish tutor with the Virtual School, was discontinued. The kids are doing that, theyre helping each other, said Principal George Oehlert. She remains as a substitute teacher on an as-needed basis. Betty Stephens, records clerk at the district of ce, also announced her retirement, after having been the delayed retirement options program (DROP) after several years School employee departures accelerate By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@starfl.com An avid reader like Becca Willis comes across a lot of words in her travels through fiction. The Apalachicola Bay Charter School sixth grader took full advantage of her familiarity with language at the Dec. 13 district spelling bee. In a battle that went several rounds, Willis and ABC School seventh grader Savannah Montgomery traded correct spellings blow for blow. Willis enjoyed gelato; Montgomery followed by beeing inimitable. The two fumbled on jitney and depilatory, but then went on a tear. Willis spelled protuberant, Montgomery scaled fabulist. Willis was correctly polymathic, and Montgomery rocked with malachite. Willis was precise with artifice, and Montgomery continued the battle with cadre. Willis was beaming when she got incandescence, and Montgomery smiled faintly with nuance. Eventually, Willis spelled correctly miasma, and then the championship word opulent to outlast her opponent. She now heads to the Big Bend Regional Spelling Bee Feb. 9, in Tallahassee, which brings together district winners from 15 counties in North Florida and South Georgia. I read a lot, a lot of bigger books, she said, citing Harry Potter and Lightning Thief, part of a fantasy-adventure novel series based on Greek mythology, by Rick Riordan. I read a lot fiction, and some nonfiction, like books based on a true story, said Willis. I enjoy reading, whenever I have free time or right before I go to sleep. Willis said she is now enjoying the book I Am Number Four, a young adult science fiction novel by Pittacus Lore, the authors James Frey and Jobie Hughes. She also is reading John Grishams latest young adult work, Theodore Boone The Abduction, which may end up cutting into her sleep time. I did that with the Hunger Games series, she said. I stayed up way past my bedtime just to finish the book. Also taking part in the bee, from the Franklin County School, were fourth grade winner Camille Davis and alternate Brycin Huckeba; fifth grader winner Jace Faircloth and alternate K.T. Nessly; sixth grade winner Makenzie Shuman and alternate Jessica Rudd; seventh grade winner Josie Kriss and alternate Sarah Gibbs; and eighth grade winner Nick Barwick and CASTING A SPELL ABC sixth-grader weathers the storm to win spelling bee Five vie for county attorney By L OIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com At their Tuesday meeting, county commissioners received proposals from ve applicants seeking the position of county attorney. In response to a call for proposals, Michael Shuler, who has represented the county for more than a decade, offered a choice of two reimbursement plans: a at fee of $70,000 annually ($5,830 / month) or $90 per hour with no retainer. Kristy Branch Banks, of Eastpoint proposed $5,600 a month, or $90 per hour for legal activities and $70 for non legal matters. Ethan Way of Tallahassee bid $95 per hour with no travel charge. Shalene Grover of Marianna proposed a $3,900 a month retainer, with an additional charge of $200 per hour and $250 per hour for litigation. Daniel Cox, of Carrabelle, sought $350 per meeting plus $135 per hour, and $175 per hour for litigation. The commissioners voted unanimously to conduct interviews at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 5, following the next regular commission meeting. Gulf County pays its attorney $153,300 annually plus $140 hourly for litigation. Wakulla County pays a $115,000 retainer and $150 to $175 hourly for litigation. Calhoun Countys attorney receives $125 per hour and Jackson County pays its attorney an $80,000 annual retainer. Shuler is currently charging the county $80 per hour for legal services, so whoever is selected for the position, the county will likely pay more for legal services than is now the case. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@starfl.co m Apalachicola dentist James A. Padgett DDS, has decided its time to put a crown on his achievement of serving the needs of the community for more than three decades. Beginning this week, Padgett, 69, has begun introducing a new dentist, Rex A. Whiteman, who acquired Padgetts practice at 218 Avenue E in Apalachicola, on Jan. 1. Whiteman and his wife Cindy, have owned a home on St. George Island since 1991, after having been frequent visitors and residents of the Apalachicola area since the early 80s. Ive wanted to be a permanent resident of this area for many years, said Whiteman, 56. Hearing that Dr. Padgett may be interested in planning a transition of his practice, we began speaking about the opportunity last year. Padgett said the two had many long conversations about their approach Atlanta dentist acquires Padgett practice See SCHOOL A2 See SPELLING A2 DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times Dr. Rex A.

BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS FRANKIN COUNTY, FLORIDA Cheryl Sanders, Chairman Locally owned and operated Home Business Auto Health Workers Comp NEW LOCATION: dbutler@coastalcoverage.com Local A2 | The Times Thursday, January 17, 2013 with the district. The only departure from the district for cause was Superintendent Nina Marks Jan. 4 decision to terminate former middle school math teacher Richard Metcalf, eight months after an incident the district believes constituted professional misconduct. In her notice of dismissal, Marks wrote that on May 4, 2012, Metcalf placed his hands on the chest of a student in an aggressive manner. The notice acknowledged that the student was at fault for participating in horseplay with the teacher before writing that Metcalf aggressively pursued the student, placed his hands on the student in a choking manner, and appeared to be physically assaulting the student. The notice described Metcalfs demeanor during the altercation as belligerent, confrontational and loud, and that several students present had witnessed the incident. It said statements and documents obtained by the district during the course of the investigation have been provided to the Florida Department of Educations Of ce of Professional Practices, but that no decision had yet been made by the department. Marks said that after the incident, she ruled that Metcalf could not have contact with students, and assigned a substitute teacher to handle his workload at the countys Learning Academy. He continued to work assisting in several administrative and technology functions for the district, Marks said. Metcalf has 15 days to decide whether to appeal the districts decision, said the superintendent. Marks began the Jan. 10 school board meeting with a detailed outline of the various steps along the districts path to the presentday, where it stands about $620,000 short of a break-even point in its nances. Marks said district administrators Nick OGrady and Martha Weimorts had shifted as much money as they could from federal grants to pay labor costs, Approvals have come through for some of the shifting, said Marks. Weve done as much of that as we could at this point. The superintendent said the district has continued to take action to make sure its general fund balance does not fall below 2 percent of its budget, as it foresees will happen at the end of this scal year, June. 30, 2013. In a Nov. 12, 2012 letter to Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart, Marks said that $313,000 in cuts had enabled the district to achieve a fund balance of 5.6 percent, but that a further decline in property values, announced by the property appraisers of ce on Oct. 22, 2012 had eroded that fund balance down to less than two-tenths of 1 percent. A subsequent letter dated Jan. 11, 2013, to new Commissioner of Education Tony Bennett reiterated the earlier timeline, and then added that when the states third calculation for per pupil reimbursement was received Dec. 21, 2012, it had shown a declining enrollment of nearly 160 full-time students, and thus a loss to the district of nearly $620,000. Because our projection was off by 159 students, because we had children leave and the numbers are all calculated through what Franklin County submitted a year ago, we have been reduced by $619,000, Marks told the school board. Thats the reality of your budget issue as of today. If you have ideas how we can x this, Im open to it. We are all open to it. Marks then recommended a drastic 19.5 percent pay cut for all employees, which was not discussed by the school board during the regular meeting. Following the meeting, the board met in executive session with its labor attorney Leonard Dietzen, to formulate the district proposal and strategy going into collective bargaining talks resumed this week with the teachers and support personnel unions. Marks proposal calls for school board members and top district administrators to take an additional 14.5 percent pay cut, on top of 5 percent they have already taken, retroactive to the start of the scal year Oct. 1. This additional cut would save about $51,000, Marks said. The superintendent said the savings for having all the remaining school employees take a 19.5 percent pay cut, beginning with the second semester, would be $513,000, for a total of $564,000. That took my breath away, Cathy Wood, president of the teachers union, told the school board. She estimated that the cut to her $48,600 annual base salary would be almost $10,000, which assumed that the cut would be retroactive to the start of the year, and not the second semester. I think I had a lovely little dissertation, how everybody works and how we try to make a difference in our children every single day, she said. But nobody understood until tonight (the numbers). It was clear and it was precise. Wood said the situation would be different today had the district opted to be a full mil, rather than a half-mil, when they went to voters to pass a referendum, which passed 54-46 percent at a special election March 2012. Yes, I supported a half mil, not a full mil, said Jimmy Gander, school board president. I thought it would sell better to the public. School board member David Hinton noted that we chose a half mil because we could reduce capital millage by a half mil. That reduction was important to sell that election. We told voters no total increase in their millage. Gander proposed delaying payroll during the last month of the scal year, and having it paid out at the start of the next scal year. This, he argued, could save money during the current year, with those labor costs coming out of next years budget, when some of the tax monies lost out in 2012-13 will be recouped. Gander shared his displeasure at the fact that enrollment projections had been way off, from an estimated 1,298 students down to an actual 1,138. You are off 12.3 percent, he said. I dont know theres a another district in the state thats off 3 percent. Im thinking somebody wanted so much money in the budget and they built the budget. Marks concede the estimates had been off. The projection was too high, that is correct, she said. We are at the here and now. All of these questions have been asked to the state, we dont know what the answers are yet, she said. Right now theyre allowing us to be the ones to resolve it. Wood reinforced her pledge to work cooperatively with the administration. There are still wonderful things happening, she said. Is the morale shaky? Thats a very polite word. We dont come to you to say youre bad and were bad, said Wood. We need to work as a team, we need the support. We all need to work. Theres not some place else any of us could go in January and nd a new teaching position. Teacher C.J. Weyrich also spoke out, and said a lot of teachers were feeling bullied by this RIF talk. A RIF is a reduction in force, enforceable under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement. A lot of teachers morale is were feeling threatened by administrators, a lot of teachers are leaving now because of the bad feelings, she said. Theyre volunteering because of the pressure put on them. Oehlert rose to speak, to stress that he had not threatened RIFs to teachers, and the situation was calmed, for the time being. We are losing children and families because theyre leaving our community, said Weyrich. This is not personal against anybody. SCHOOL from page A1 CATHY WOOD NINA MARKS alternate Antonio Gallegos.

In 1976, Padgett graduated from the Louisiana State University Dental School and started his practice in Panama City. After earning a degree in chemical engineering from the University of Florida, the Westville native had worked for seven years in the oil and gas industry, rst with Shell Oil and later with Union Carbide. In 1980, Padgett rst came to Apalachicola as a new dentist, acquiring a public health clinic practice in 1983, and up until two years ago, was the countys only dentist. He built the house where his practice is located in March 1985, and has been there ever since, with his wife Andrea at his side, assisting with clerical matters for the practice. The communitys been good to me, he said. I hope Im good to the community. Padgett isnt going anywhere; he plans to stay on for at least two years, but will gradually taper off to just a couple days a week. Im still going to be here, but I want to cut back, though, he said. I love dentistry; I still do. If I didnt do it, Id miss it. Originally from northeast Ohio, Whiteman holds a bachelors of science degree in biology from Denison University. In 1984, he graduated from the Emory University School of Dentistry in Atlanta. He started up and has owned and operated his solo practice in Peachtree Corners, in north metro Atlanta, for over 25 years. Rex is a perfect t for the practice and the community and we share the same philosophy of providing ideal dental care to our patients, said Padgett. The superb team of of ce management, dental hygiene and dental assistants will not change, and will continue to provide the excellent services they have provided to the community for many years. The Whitemans are in the process of selling their home and their practice in the Atlanta area and once completed, they will be in the county fulltime. They have been married for 31 years and they and their dog, Jaeger, plan to reside on St. George Island. One change that the community can expect from the transition to Whitemans ownership is an expansion of services. Jim and I have many complementary skills, and together, we will be able to offer more services to the community, said Whiteman. He said the practice plans to offer Invisalign (clear braces) in additional to the currently offered Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces system Another service will be the placement of dental implants to complement the restoration of implants that the practice has offered. Whiteman said other new services will include CAD/CAM Cerec technology which allows patients to have inlays and onlays and some crowns completed in one visit, eliminating the need for temporaries. NuCalm, a non-narcotic relaxation therapy that reduces anxiety during the patients visit will also be forthcoming. Whiteman said new cosmetic dentistry services will also be brought in, including dermal llers which reduce deep lines on the face, and Botox treatments to ease TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disorder) problems, chronic headaches and wrinkles on the face.

Apalachicola Mardi Gras, or the resurrection of the event as a primary fundraiser for the Franklin County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1 and 2. A Golf Cart ($20 entry) and Pet Parade ($5 entry) will kick off the weekend on Friday, Feb. 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. starting at the Bowery down Commerce Street to the Courthouse and around Water Street to festivities a Riverfront Park. Food (Lucky dogs, gumbo and more) and drinks (soft, beer and wine) will begin at 3 p.m. in the Centennial Bank parking lot between the Consulate and Cotton Exchange. The Brian Bowen Band will perform from 6:30 p.m. until following the parade. Come catch some beads, show off your decorated carts, parade your pets or just Bon Tiemp Roullez Let the Good Times Roll during downtown Apalachicola, Mardi Gras. The traditional Mardi Gras Ball will be Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Coombs Armory, at 6:30 p.m., for dinner (tickets $50 per person) or show only beginning at 7:30 p.m. (tickets $25 per person). More than 20 tables for six went fast last year, with priority for Mardi Gras Sponsors @ $500 or $1000 (Two tables). Dress is snazzy to jazzy, which means just about anything interesting with shoes and shirt that generally match. Youll see some of Apalach decked out from tux to tie, glittering formal wear to shimmery dresses in the traditional gold, purple or greens of Mardi Gras. Masks are optional but encouraged. Well provide the beads. Entertainment will be by the Dirty T-shirt Band, which ts perfectly with the dress code, and the crowd favorite Hot Flashes from Pam Nobles Dance studio. Trumpeteer Don Juan Fortner will lead the traditional Saints March for the 10th year and serenade tables with Sinatra to Santana. The Brian Bowen Band will play the dinner set during the Mardi Gras Ball. If youd like to donate an item for the silent auction please contact Caty Green at 653-3113. Crowning of the 10th anniversary King Rex and Princess Pearl begins the show. They will be Ken and Kim Fish from Taylors Building Supply, 10year supporters for every habitat home in Franklin County. The honors will be bestowed by reigning royalty Mason and Marilyn Bean and emceed by the Master or Jester of Ceremonies, depending on his hat, David Butler all Mardi Gras veterans for the last decade. All former King Rex and Princess Pearls will be invited to join the 10th Mardi Gras court and be recognized for their support of Habitat homes. They are: 2004 Rex & Cleo Parrington 2005 Frederick Humphrey & Cora Russ 2006 William Solburg & Candida Robertson 2007 Cliff & Denise Butler 2008 Max Brown & Ella Bond 2009 Jerry Hall & Dixie Parrington 2010 Danny & Marisa Itzkovitz 2011 Wayne Thomas & Mary Ann Durrer 2012 Mason & Marilyn Bean Franklin Habitat is competing its fourth house in Eastpoint and has recently chosen the fth family for the next build. Local banks Cadence and Centennial generously donated two lots in Magnolia Ridge, to build a family a home they could not afford without Habitats help. Important to note a Habitat home is a no-interest loan each family must back with reasonable monthly payments. Since the local chapter is all-volunteer, every dollar donated goes to build the next house and every dollar repaid by Habitat families is invested in another home. We need to reach a goal of 10 Habitat homes as soon as possible so the equity monthly payments pay for half the next Habitat home. Then we have a better chance to reach our original goal of one Habitat home a year in Franklin County. Were almost half way there. Help us all you can. So come Bon Tiemp Roullez and let the Good Times Roll during the Apalachicola Mardi Gras Parade and Ball. Habitat volunteers Don and Pamela Ashley are helping organize the Apalachicola Mardi Gras. DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times Last years golf cart parade was a huge hit. Habitat to roll with Mardi Gras anniversary By Butch Foust Special to the Times Editors note: In response to the discovery of a rabid fox in Apalachicola, Dr. Hobson Fulmer and the Apalachicola Bay Animal clinic held a reduced cost rabies vaccination clinic on Sept. 8. More than 150 animals received vaccinations but, sadly, one mishap occurred. A cat, Mr. Dibbs, escaped. Thanks to modern technology, almost four months later, Mr. Dibbs is home again. On Friday, Jan. 4, we received a call from Dr. Fulmers of ce saying they had our cat, Mr. Dibbs. They said the cat went AWOL on Saturday, Sept. 8, when a clasp on his carrying case snapped, he jumped out and ran across Highway 98 during Dr. Fulmers free rabies shot clinic. Four months had passed and a woman who lives behind the vet of ce brought our cat in to see if he had a chip embedded. He did and the chip read his owner was Wolfgang Foust (our son) of San Francisco. Because of a heavy travel schedule, our son sent us Mr. Dibbs and his brother Fred the dog in Oct. 2011. During his disappearance, my wife searched for him almost on a daily basis for the rst month, until she ran into a black bear behind the Pirate Restaurant in Eastpoint. Thanks to Oyster Radio, the Apalachicola Times and the posters that reporter Lois Swoboda made for us. We received a lot of phone calls about Mr. Dibbs sightings. We even received one asking for Mrs. Dibbs. The Pirate Restaurant, Tom at the Truck Link, the lady in the kite store and the Chevron station on Island Drive, were especially helpful. The people at Dr. Fulmers clinic were above and beyond! To make a long story short, we brought Mr. Dibbs home last Friday, after four months and his brother Fred smelled him up and down and then tried to hump him, for which he received a good whack. They then went to sleep together. We saved on four months of cat food, but it wasnt worth the wear and tear. Please tell your readers to get a microchip. They work. Microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and contain a registration number. They use radio waves to provide information about your pet, and are implanted just under the skin, usually right between the shoulder blades. If your animal becomes lost or is stolen, a microchip dramatically increases the odds of it returning home. Microchips are designed to work for 25 years. Animal clinics implant microchips for a small fee, with a large-bore needle that doesnt require anesthesia. There is usually an annual fee to maintain your animals registration. Doesnt the law address loud music from cars? I thought there was a city ordinance about loud music in vehicles. It has gotten to where you cant even sit on your porch without hearing LOUD music coming from cars going past your house. Its bad enough hearing the booming music but it is worse when you hear all the foul language that goes along with the music. I cringe whenever I hear it because lots of times I am sitting out watching my 5-year-old grandson playing in the yard and he hears it too. I know I am not the only parent/grandparent that wishes our law enforcement would do something about this. Sheree Chumney Jesus is the answer Every so often, I think about the kids and the staff who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School, such a tragic. When prayer was taken out of our public schools, the enemy found his way in. I am a sub-teacher at Franklin County Early Headstart. I love and I do pray for our children. Most of all I am a member of the Body of Christ. I do believe in the power of prayer, because I believe in Jesus Christ, the son of the living God. No matter how we try to solve the issues on school safety, there is only one way, and that way is Jesus (prayer). He said he will never leave us, nor forsake us. We must be about our fathers business. Jesus must be preached! As the words of my pastor, Barry L. Hand preached, Jesus said: Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to come unto me for such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14. Our children are our future; lets make sure they are in it. Yours in Christ, Theresa McClendon They put up a dollar store! Oh, Joni, look what weve got: Not just simply a parking lot! Theyve gone and let something many deplore; Theyve put up a gosh, darn dollar store! Its sad that the vision is notably thin Of appointed and chosen A few, mostly good men. Who perhaps with intention Of giving monetary might, Added to a neighborhoods developing blight. The rst they said a developer may Put condos on Shadow Lane just up from the bay. And now in its backyard, and Adams Street, too, Theyll add noise, pollution and blocking of view. So what of estates arrayed on the bay, Theyd rather have a dollar store Moored in their way! No notice to neighbors, They do as they please No mention the canopy less 23 trees! There was land east of here Where theres already a strip, But no push for that came out of their lips. I fear that the vision is terribly thin: Does no one remember a pledge somewhere when Prime was the history, prime was the bay, Prime was in keeping it simply that way? Oh, Joni, look what weve got: Not just simply a parking lot! Theyve gone and let something many deplore Theyve put up a gosh, darn dollar store! Melicent Remy January 2013 Finally, straight answers from the Census Bureau As a follow-up to my letter of Jan. 10, 2013, to the Times, I wanted to let you know I lucked up and actually found someone at the Census Bureau who could read, write and comprehend! She was able to inform me this survey had nothing to do with the census taken in 2010 (as the previous two clerks had led me to believe), but has to do with affordable housing. It is called the American Community Survey, or ACS, and the survey is 28 pages long! One of the questions on the survey is Do you have a ushable toilet in your home? She informed me this information is being sought by Congress. OK. I will make a deal with the Census Bureau. I will complete this ACS form when Congress passes a balanced budget! I did receive my letter from the Census Bureau one of the clerks said she would send me. It came today; addressed to current resident. There is no reference number, nothing! The letter was signed by James B. Treat, Chief, American Community Survey Of ce, in Jeffersonville, Indiana. I received another telephone call from the Census Bureau, Sunday around 6 p.m. I suppose that I can look forward to receiving calls from them on a regular basis until I complete their survey. Needless to say, I did not answer the phone. Sincerely, Shirley N. Taylor BUTCH FOUST | Special to the Times Mr. Dibbs and his brother, Fred the dog Letters to the EDITOR Happy endings: Mr. Dibbs

Ofcers Jason Carroll and Matt Gore were working the Apalachicola Bay between Jan. 4 and 10, when they encountered two suspects who were commercial mullet shing. After conducting surveillance, the ofcers stopped the subjects when they observed them hide a net. Subsequent investigation revealed the net was not marked, of an illegal mesh size, and greater than 500 square feet. The two subjects were repeat offenders of resource violations.

Arrest REPOR T FWC REPOR T MOCK SWORN IN AS SHERIFF By LOIS SWOBODA A 13-member RESTORE Council has been approved by the county commission. At the Jan. 2 meeting, Director of Administrative Services Alan Pierce proposed a structure for the much debated RESTORE Council that was unanimously approved with some changes. The board will consist of a nonvoting chairman, to be appointed by the county commission and representatives of the cities of Apalachicola and Carrabelle, the school board, the Tourist Development Council (TDC), the seafood dealers and seafood workers associations, the Realtors Association and environmentalists. In addition, each county district will have one representative appointed by its commissioner. The RESTORE Council will vet projects within the county, but under this plan, the county commission has the ultimate say in who receives funding. The RESTORE Act does not outline a process for what happens after money reaches Floridas affected counties, but the Florida Association of Counties has suggested the creation of these RESTORE councils to decide where to spend the local funds, a suggestion echoed by U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland during a recent private meeting with some local ofcials. Neither Apalachicola nor Carrabelle has named a representative to the council. Paul Parker has been chosen to represent the TDC. School board member Pam Shiver will represent the schools. Franklin County Seafood Workers Association President Shannon Hartseld will speak for the association. The Seafood Dealers Association has chosen Lynn Martina as spokesperson. Rick Watson will represent the realtors association. Riverkeeper Dan Tonsmeire was chosen as the environmental representative at the Jan. 15 meeting of the county commission with Robin Vroegop picked as a nonvoting alternative because Tonsmeire is frequently absent from the county. At the same meeting District 5 Commissioner William Massey announced Carrabelle City commissioner Cal Allen would represent his district on the council. District 3 Commissioner Noah Lockley tapped local activist Carol Bareld for his position. During the discussion, Pierce said Okaloosa, Walton and Bay counties have not created RESTORE councils. Gulf County has the largest RESTORE Council with 15 members. Five were appointed by county commissioners. The TDC, Economic Development Council (EDC), Gulf Coast State College and the Gulf Coast Workforce Board each have a representative. Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe each have a member and the construction and shing industries as well as local environmental groups have a seat on the council. Wakulla has a 13 member council. The county commission, chamber of commerce, TDC, EDC, school board and Tallahassee Community College are represented. Panacea Waterfronts and each of the countys three unincorporated communities has a seat. There are natural resource and shing industry representatives and one at-large member with a nance background. Santa Rosa Countys 11-member board has one representative from each of the countys ve districts and one representative from each of the three incorporated cities. The Navarre Beach Chamber of Commerce sits on the board along with the chairman of the county commission and one other county board member. Escambia County has a seven-member council. Pensacola is represented along with nancial, government experience, environmental, economic development and business leaders.

KENNETH DWAIN HARRELSON | Special to the Times Special to The Times The University of Florida, in conjunction with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is seeking volunteers to participate in coastal cleanup events Saturday on St. George Island and Sunday on St. Joseph Peninsula. These beaches provide important resources for nesting shorebirds and sea turtles as well as the local economy, and by volunteering for these cleanup efforts to remove unsightly and harmful trash and debris, you can help improve our valuable coastal habitats. Volunteers will also document the amount and types of items they pick up on the beach to determine sources of coastal debris to help reduce and prevent its adverse impacts on beaches. If you are interested in volunteering for these cleanup events or have any questions, email Jessica McKenzie at sjpturtlepatrol@ gmail.com. The St. George Island Coastal Cleanup will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until all sections of beach have been covered Saturday. Participants should meet at the St. George Lighthouse parking lot, 2 E. Gulf Beach Drive The clean-up on St. Joseph Peninsula will be from 9 a.m. to noon EST or until all sections of beach have been covered Sunday. Participants will meet at Cape Palms Park, just south of Rish Park. Volunteers should dress appropriately for weather and walking. Trash bags, gloves and water will be provided. Special to The Times Joshua Hodson, manager of Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, came to the school board meeting Jan. 10 to present a $200 check to the Future Builder Association. The money represented a donation by the Friends of Franklin County State Parks, Inc. of $50 for each of four tables made by the shop class at Franklin County High School. Hodson said the Friends provided materials to the class, taught by W.K. Sanders, and plans to put the completed tables at each of the countys three state parks. Sanders said his students last year built two tables for the parks, and is building two for them this year. The tables are made of pressure-treated pine, with galvanized carriage bolts. He said the class also makes Adirondack chairs, for $80 each, with that money going to the money goes to the Future Builder Association account. Weve been fortunate to sell all the chairs weve made but we could certainly build more if there was demand, he said.

Good size whiting and a few pompano have been caught on Cape San Blas and along the beaches from Mexico to Indian Pass. Area lakes and rivers are still producing good bream and crappie catches. Around the Howard Creek area and up to the Dead Lakes, many anglers are reporting on crqppie and bream catches on tree overhangs and in deeper holes in the rivers. Of cials seek help for monarch count along Gulf Coast Special to The Times Volunteers are needed to participate in the Northern Gulf Coast Monarch Over-Wintering Count along the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico through February. Participants should reside or spend part of most weeks within 1 mile of the Gulf Coast. The count is designed to begin to gather data to answer the question of Do monarch butteries over-winter along the northern Gulf Coast? Many people have said they have seen monarchs along this coast in January or February, but there is little or no data to verify whether this is a rare or consistent happening. The project is directed by Richard Rubino, who will be working closely with David Cook, current director of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge Fall Monarch Migration Tagging Project, and Ron Nelson, who manages the Eden Spring Monarch Migration Augmentation Project in Tallahassee. Attend a free workshop from 6-7:30 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Apalachicola Reserve Nature Center, 100 Island Drive, Eastpoint. No pre-registration necessary. For questions about workshop, call 670-7700. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com The number of birds counted was down from 2011, but three new species were added to the county list during the 2012 Christmas Bird Count. On Dec. 28, 30 volunteers traveled 514 miles by car and boat to count 8,883 birds of 136 species during the 2012 count. A year earlier, more than 24,000 birds were observed during the CBC, and more than 10,000 were counted in 2010. Experienced birders said windy weather may have been a factor in the reduced number of birds observed this year. Seen for the rst time this year was a whimbrel spotted in the Miles region west of Apalachicola. This large wading bird breeds in the Arctic and migrates to South and Central America, Africa, south Asia, Australia and the southern United States for the winter. It uses its long, down-curved bill to probe deep in the sand of beaches for shell sh and other small animals, but also feeds on berries and insects. Master birder John Murphy said he was surprised this species has not been observed in Franklin County in previous bird CBCs. Murphy organized the count this year stepping into the considerable shoes of Alan Knothe. Another rst-time species for the count was a barn owl spotted near the Apalachicola Regional Airport. Considered the most widespread owl species, it had never been spotted during a CBC in Franklin County. A welcome and anticipated rst was a buff-bellied hummingbird that has been haunting a residence in the historic district. This Mexican native is larger than the ruby throated hummingbird commonly encountered in our area. Ornithologists believe this species is expanding its range into the southern US because so much of its Mexican habitat has been lost to agriculture. The bird was observed feeding on the owers of a loquat tree. Buff-bellies nest in shrubs usually less than ve feet from the ground. Notable absences during this years count were the spotted sandpiper and rock pigeon. Seven Spragues pipits were observed at the regional airport this year, a new record up from ve spotted last year. Once again a western kingbird was observed along Airport Road very near to where the same species was encountered last year. Sightings of this bird in the eastern US have become more common during the 21st Century. The bald eagle population continues to ourish. This year 51 were seen around the county up from 46 last year. The most commonly observed bird was the redhead duck; 5,500 were counted, 4,500 on Little St. George Island. This year for the CBC became a free program. In the past, Audubon charged eld participants a $5 fee. To minimize the effects of the loss of income, American Birds, the publication chronicling the bird count, will be delivered entirely online, no longer printed on paper and mailed to participants. According to the Audubon website the CBC helps inform conservationists about local trends in bird populations and plan strategies to protect birds and their habitat. The Environmental Protection Agency has included Audubons climate change work from CBC data as one of 26 indicators of climate change in their 2012 report. Great Backyard Bird Count coming up The CBC is over, but now its time to gear up for the 16th annual Great Backyard Bird Count Feb. 15-18. The GBBC is a four-day event that engages bird watchers in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are across the U.S. and Canada. The count is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society to learn more about how birds are doing. Last year, participants turned in more than 104,285 checklists online, creating the continents largest instantaneous snapshot of bird populations ever recorded. Watchers reported observing 623 species and 17,382,831 birds. Anyone can take part in the GBBC, from novice bird watchers to experts. Participants count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the event and report their sightings at www.birdcount.org. On the website, participants can explore real-time maps and charts that show what others are reporting during the count. The site has tips to help identify birds and special materials for educators. Participants may also enter the GBBC photo contest by uploading images taken during the count. Many images will be featured in the GBBC websites photo gallery. All participants are entered in a drawing for prizes that include bird feeders, binoculars, books, CDs and many other great birding products. For more information about the GBBC, visit www.birdcount.org or call the Cornell Lab of Ornithology at 800-843-2473.

The Lady Seahawks outscored their opponents 3-1 in the rst half, and then added three more in the second for the win. Junior Gracyn Kirvin scored three times, eighthgrader Allie Kirvin twice and sophomore Katie Seger once. Junior Jessica Shields tallied three assists, while goalie Macy Hunt had 10 saves. The Lady Seahawks hosted the Rutherford Lady Rams on Jan. 9 for their last regular season game. Early in the match, the Lady Rams goalkeeper handled the ball outside the penalty box which gave the Lady Seahawks a direct free kick. Seger struck the free kick toward the goal, and Gracyn Kirvin abruptly put the ball in the net, giving the Lady Seahawks a 1-0 lead in the rst half. Shortly before halftime, junior Adriana Reeder played a ball to Allie Kirvin, who turned and dribbled around two Lady Ram defenders and then shot the ball past their goalkeeper, giving Franklin County a 20 lead into halftime. Midway through the second half Gracyn Kirvin took a throw-in which ended up in the middle of the box. Eighth-grader Allie Zingarelli came running down the middle and put the ball in the net to give the Seahawks a 3-0 lead. Our defense shut out the Lady Rams in the rst half and stayed strong throughout the match, coach Kelli Wright said. Lady Seahawks defensive players are Ally Millender, Deborah Dempsey, Laura Gallegos, Karli Tucker, Reeder and Seger. This was a physical game, and our defense came through and made some plays for us, Wright said. I think this was one of our better played games of the year offensively and defensively. This was a landmark victory for our school, beating a Class 3A school. Hunt came up with nine saves for her sixth shutout of the season. The team now faces district rival Port St. Joe, on Friday night, in a game played at the Gulf County high school. Stephanie Marxsen and Karli Tucker were honored last week at Senior Night.

Billy Harris had six in the second half, while letting one shot get through for a goal. This was a great last home game, Coach Luis Ramon Valenzuela said. All the seniors started and nished their last home game. It was the best game ever played during the season. During the game, we passed the ball more accurately, and the communication was more effective. We have been practicing more strategies, which it showed tonight at our last home game. Valenzuela said he and assistant coach Stacey Kirvin are working closely with the boys to prepare for post-season district play at Freeport on Tuesday, Jan. 22, against Rocky Bayou. The nals will be Jan. 25, likely at Freeport, depending on who advances to the contest.

MARCIA M. JOHNSON CLERK OF CIRCUIT COURT, FRANKLIN COUNTY Terry E. Creamer Deputy Clerk Jan 10, 17, 2013 89842T PUBLIC NOTICE STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue an environmental resources permit for a Extension of an existing dock, FDEP Number 19-0227200002-EG, to First Choice Gov., Inc. c/o Mr. Grayson Riner, 337 South Milledge Avenue, Suite 102C, Athens, GA 30605. The purpose of the permit is to authorize construction of a 130 ft. extension to an existing dock, with a terminus 10 ft. by 16 ft. and two (2) boatlifts, 10 ft. by 19 ft. The project is located at 1968 U.S. Highway 98, Carrabelle, FL 32320, Latitude 29.825778 degrees North, Longitude 84.699797 degrees, St. George Sound, Class 11, Outstanding Florida Waters, in Carrabelle, Florida. Based on all the above, and with the application of general and limiting specific conditions of the permit, the Department has reasonable assurance the project, as proposed, fully meets the environmental resources permitting requirements of Chapter 62-346, Florida Administrative Code, and will not harm the environment. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statute. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 323993000. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to re-determine final agency action on the application, the filing of a petition for an administrative hearing may result in a modification of the permit, or even a denial of the application. Accordingly, the applicant will not commence construction or other activities under this permit until the deadlines below for filing a petition for an administrative hearing, or request for an extension of time, have expired. Under subsection 62-110.106(4) of the Florida Administrative Code, a person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may also request an extension of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 323993000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running time period for filing a petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting,party showing that the failure to file a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect. In the event that a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code. In accordance with subsection 28-106.111 (2) and subparagraph 62-110.106(3)(a).4, Florida Administrative Code, petitions for an administrative hearing by the applicant must be filed within 14 days of receipt of written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60 (3) of the Florida Statutes, must be filed within 14 days of publication of the notice. Under Section 120.60 (3) of the Florida Statute, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing.

The construction was requested by Ted Mosteller for Randall Terry who wanted the use of a 3,600 square foot hangar larger than existing hangars but smaller than the unrented corporate hangar completed early in 2012. The new hangar will be a metal building on a concrete foundation. Commissioners voted to build the hangar but not grant Terry a lease on the building. According to Dun and Bradstreet, Terry is corporate of cer and sole employee of TP Transport Broker Inc. of 101 Apalachcee St., west of Apalachicola. TP Transport was founded in 2011 and had an annual income of $43,000. According to TP Transports corporate website, http://tptransportinc. com/no_middleman.php, the company arranges for transport of automobiles and other freight, but does not own trucks. Airport Manager Ted Mosteller said Terry wants to rent the hangar for 20 years at $500 a month. He said the cost of the hangar would be about $180,000 and the construction would be completely funded by grant money from the Florida Department of Transportation. He said one of the grants must be spent by June. Commissioner William Massey said the 20-year lease would not pay for the hangar. Therell be a remainder of about $80,000, he said. Mosteller said the hangar was expected to last more than 20 years. He said Terry would store an aircraft in the hangar and locate the corporate of ce of TP Transport there. It basically is a telephone type business, Mosteller said. Terry rents a T-hangar at the airport. Commissioner Pinki Jackel said she was not in favor of a 20-year lease. Commissioner Cheryl Sanders said she believed the commission had discussed a policy of limiting leases of county property to ve years. Mosteller said the airport committee reviewed Terrys request and approved the proposed rent. He said they recommended the rent be reviewed in ve years. Mosteller said the rent, 14 cents a square foot, is comparable to what is being paid for existing T-hangars and for Garlick Environmental Associates corporate hangar. The Garlick hangar is about 10,000 square feet, used for both of ces and storage, and rents for $1,600 monthly, 16 cents a square foot. Garlick has a 20-year lease on his solar powered hangar. Im just looking at what may come down the tube, Jackel said. Its possible with the BP money well have some funds to bring in some people who might want to do some manufacturing and create jobs in Franklin County for a more sustainable economy. Jackel asked whether Terry would employ anyone; Mosteller said he was unsure. The commission voted to seek bids for the building but reserve the opportunity to negotiate with Terry further or seek another tenant. Bids for the construction work will be opened in February. Mosteller said he will use other grant money to purchase a lawnmower and sweeper to maintain the runways. He said he has an additional $15,000 that he proposes to use to construct a shelter over the self-service fuel farm. He said all of these purchases have been blessed by the FDOT. Taylor Newman, executive of cer of Crystal Air, the airports new xed base operator, also addressed the commission Jan. 2. He said that in spite of a normal reduction of business during the winter, the airport had been busier than anticipated in November and December. He said Crystal Air is planning a y-in open house in April or May to coincide with the annual National Fly-in held in Lakeland. He said there will be discount fuel for pilots and airplane rides available to airport visitors. Newman said there are plans to base an airplane available for rental at the airport and resume ight instruction sometime in 2013. He said he has a short-term tenant for the vacant corporate hangar during the month of February. He said Crystal Air plans to hire an additional employee in late spring or early summer.

Carrabelle focuses on nuisance trash At the Jan. 3 Carrabelle city meeting, Commissioner Charlotte Schneider introduced the topic of nuisance trash within the city limits. City Clerk Keisha Smith said some residents are repeat offenders who take advantage of city work crews. She said that when a warning is issued, the offender has 30 days to correct the problem. Even after it is corrected, frequently within 30 days the trash has accumulated again and another warning must be issued, Smith said. I know where theres a big Mack truck parked in the city easement that remains full of garbage, Commissioner Brenda LaPaz said. It looks like he tries to get a full load before going to land ll. Meanwhile, he has it parked so when it rains, the water drains out onto the right of way. LaPaz said the water was hazardous because the truck contains bathroom waste. She said burn pile next to the truck shows where garbage had been incinerated. LaPaz said the prevalence of household garbage in the city makes it dif cult for real estate agents to show property because they are embarrassed. City Attorney Dan Hartman said that although trucks legally could park in the rightof-way, the garbage could be deemed a nuisance and the owners cited because it created a health hazard. He suggested the city ordinance be changed to target repeat offenders such as the owners of the truck under discussion. Smith said the problem was made worse because she is the only code enforcement of cer and lacked resources to constantly patrol, looking for violations. Commissioner Cal Allen suggested Planning and Zoning review the existing trash ordinance. Commissioners voted unanimously to send the ordinance to P&Z for review and address possible changes at the next city meeting. In a telephone interview, Smith said the ordinance is based on Chapter 162 of the Florida Statutes. Its from 2005 and doesnt cover everything, she said.
