RESTORE Council leaves much undecided By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.co m The rst meeting of the countys RESTORE Council March 28 offered members guidance on ethics when it met for the rst time. County Commission Chairman Cheryl Sanders, who also is sits as non-voting chair of the RESTORE Council, said the purpose of the rst meeting was to, organize this committee and set ground rules. County Attorney Michael Shuler distributed literature on ethics and Floridas Sunshine Law. He also provided board members with nancial disclosure forms they are required to le with the state. He said that alternates appointed to the board must meet the same requirements as regular members. He cautioned representatives on the council that their email and Facebook postings are now public record. County Director of Administrative Services Alan Pierce said the council will recommend projects for funding to the county commission, which will then decide whether to submit proposals to the federal government for funding. He said Franklin County could receive anywhere from $0 to $60 Thursday, April 4, 2013 VOL. 127 ISSUE 49 Big drop in county jobless rate By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@starfl.co m Franklin County saw a sizeable falling of its unemployment rate for February, as it dropped to the 6.1 percent level. According to preliminary numbers released Friday by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the countys jobless rate in Feb. 2013 dropped eight-tenths of 1 percent from 6.9 percent. Thirtyseven moved off unemployment rolls, shrinking them from 358 to 321 people in search of work. The drop in joblessness occurred even as the workforce grew by 38 workers, from 5,197 to 5,235, larger than one year ago, when it comprised 5,141 workers, and when the jobless rate was sharply higher, at 7.5 percent. Franklin Countys jobless picture improved to seventh best in the state, an equal percentage to Sumter County. Monroe County, at 4.2 percent, had the states lowest unemployment rate, followed by Walton (5.1 percent), Okaloosa (5.5 percent), Alachua (5.6 percent), St. Johns (5.8 percent) and Wakulla County (6.0 percent). Many of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions of government employment. Strong population growth was also a contributing factor. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.7 percent in February 2013, the lowest Board hears more on writing test matters By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@starfl.co m A Franklin County parent asked the school board last week that the true story be shared regarding the conduct of high school teachers who administer the 10th grade state writing test. Sherry White stepped forward, she had been placed on the agenda. Before she said anything, everyone indicated they wanted to be clear what the rules did or did not allow pertaining to employee con dentiality. White is the parent of one of ve sophomores whose Feb. 27 Florida Writes exams were invalidated by the district. She has spoken on the matter in a public way ever since questions were raised about possible teacher involvement with students during the test period. The district invalidated ve tests, and issued a statement March 6 that said a breach of security was reported. The invalidation is the result of documented, unauthorized help or suggestions made during the test by the administrator of the test. Even more than a violation of rule protocols, which it appears to be, this could possibly a matter of professional misconduct against a teachers record, and even criminality, as serious violations may be prosecuted as a misdemeanor. Thus it was of utmost importance the rules be spelled out from the onset, that there would be no reference, direct or indirect, to a particular teacher or teachers. Were not allowed to discuss employees or anything thats identi able, said School Attorney Barbara Sanders. After that we have to put them on notice if theres going to be any discussion of any wrongdoing. White sounded ne with that, and asked to know when the investigation would be closed. Superintendent Nina Marks was indeterminate. Im not sure, Marks said. As soon as Im noti ed I can notify everybody when its public. School Board Chair Jimmy Gander sounded matter Opinion . . . . . .

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, April 4, 2013 Whats new at Camp Gordon Johnston Museum Director Linda Minichiello has introduced several new exhibits at the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum and is seeking additional artifacts. The Camp Gordon Johnston Museum in Carrabelle is dedicated to the memory of a World War II training facility that occupied most of Franklin County from 1942-44. It houses an extensive collection of wartime memorabilia including uniforms, propaganda, furniture, weapons and more. The museum recently expanded into additional galleries and added a series of rooms depicting wartime life in Carrabelle and at the camp. In addition, a display case now spotlights the role of religion during the war. The centerpiece of the collection is a beautiful harmonium donated by Ouida Sack of Eastpoint. The exterior of the instrument is in mint condition but it is not currently playable. Minichiello said Paul Marxsen will be taking a look at the works soon to see what needs to be done to put it in perfect pitch. Also on display are a military hymnal; two Bibles, one a rare edition displaying the insignia of the Army Air Corps; a photograph of a church service at Camp Gordon Johnston and a print of the Last Supper in an antique frame. The museum also has several exhibits dealing with conflicts other than World War II. Minichiello said that, after the 911 terrorist attacks, at the request of local World War II veterans, she created a series of exhibits in the movie room with artifacts from wars that came before and after that war.. Minichiello said she is seeking artifacts from the Spanish-American War, the Civil War and the American Revolution to add to her collection. Please do not donate ordnance. The museum at 1001 Gray Ave., is open Monday through Thursday 1 to 4 p.m., Friday noon to 1 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call 697-8575.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, April 4, 2013 A Page 4 Section Nearly 1,200 lowincome customers in Apalachicola will soon receive a much-needed boost from Progress Energy Florida, a subsidiary of Duke Energy. Through the companys innovative Neighborhood Energy Saver program, the homes and apartments of quali ed customers will receive a complimentary energy makeover, which includes the installation of up to 16 energysaving improvements. The company will also educate customers about the behaviors and other factors that contribute to their energy bills. Progress Energy Florida is committed to help our customers better understand and manage their energy use, said Alex Glenn, president of Progress Energy Florida. We provide customers the tools to help reduce their energy bills, and the information needed to make long-lasting, positive change. The Neighborhood Energy Saver program bene ts low-income customers living in select, census-de ned communities. Since the programs inception in 2006, Progress Energy has implemented the program in more than 30 communities across the state and installed more than 280,000 energyef ciency improvements in more than 15,000 lowincome customers homes. The programs kickoff will take place Tuesday, April 9, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Apalachicola Senior Center & Community Facility at 205 Dr. Fredrick S. Humphries St. Eligible customers will learn about the program and the energy-ef ciency improvements that, when used in conjunction with energy-saving practices, can help save up to $150 a year in energy costs. In partnership with the city of Apalachicola, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Franklin County government, Hillside Coalition of Laborers for Apalachicola (HCOLA) and Capital Area Community Action Agency, Progress Energy plans to install energyef cient improvements in 1,179 homes at no cost to residents. The Neighborhood Energy Saver team members will install improvements beginning April 10 and will conclude in mid-July. Each participant will receive up to 16 energy-ef ciency improvements at no cost, including: water heater wraps and insulation for water pipes; lowow faucet aerator and lowow showerhead; refrigerator coil brush and refrigerator thermometer; wall plate thermometer; HVAC winterization kit; water heater temperature check and adjustment and HVAC lters and a lter-change calendar. Progress Energy Florida also helps reduce energy loss through the installation of door sweeps, caulking, foam insulation, weather stripping and clear patch tape. In addition, the company provides up to ve compact uorescent light bulbs. The Apalachicola program targets homes and apartments with the following boundaries: Highway 98 (Avenue E) east to Market Street, Market Street north to Avenue M, Avenue M west to 11th Street, 11th Street north to 12th Street, (to include 2nd Avenue, 4th Avenue, South Avenue and Main Street from 4th Avenue to 12th Street), 12th Street northwest to Bluff Road, Bluff Road west to Pal Rivers/Airport Road, Pal Rivers/Airport Road south to Highway 98. A ier showing the eligible area is available upon request. Federal and state guidelines and census data are used to objectively select communities where the program would be most bene cial. The Neighborhood Energy Saver program began as a pilot project in 2006 in St. Petersburgs Palmetto Park community. The program has been so successful that the company has conducted the outreach in 34 communities statewide, including Altamonte Springs, Apopka, Avon Park, Clearwater, Crystal River, DeLand, East Orlando, Eastpoint, Eatonville, Haines City, Inverness, Jasper, Madison, New Port Richey, Perry, Plymouth, Sebring, Trenton and several St. Petersburg neighborhoods. The Southeastern Electric Exchange awarded the project the 2007 Industry Excellence Award in the Rates & Regulation category. Since 1981, Progress Energy Florida has helped its customers save more than $1 billion through its energy-ef ciency programs a savings that represents enough electricity conserved by customers to power more than 900,000 homes for a year. These programs have helped eliminate more than 8.3 million tons of CO2 (equal to removing more than 1.8 million cars from the road every year). Energy ef ciency is critical to meeting our states long-term energy needs, Glenn said. It is the quickest, easiest and most environmentally friendly way to reduce energy use. During the next decade, the utility anticipates these measures will avoid the need for an additional 1,500 megawatts of new generation.

On April 18, Historic Apalachicola Main Street along with DB Consulting will undertake an intensive three-day visioning process which will focus on engaging the public through one-on-one interviews, focus groups, a public meeting and a live, electronic survey. DB Consulting founder, Danny Bivins headed the UGAs J.W. Fanning Institute Riverway South Project, which in 2007 brought a crew of students from the University of Georgia to Apalachicola as part of a sustained effort to generate ideas for economic and aesthetic revitalization of the riverway. Through this public engagement process the community will identify issues to address, prioritize those issues and develop creative solutions. Main Street Apalachicola will then work with citizens and partner organizations to lead a community effort to implement the downtown vision. We are very excited about the opportunity to gather input from a broad spectrum of individuals and organizations about what they envision for downtown Apalachicola, said Tom Morgan, chair of the Main Street Apalachicola board. The consultants have more than 20 years of experience working with communities like Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Donaldson, Ga. that seek to make their downtowns a vibrant and thriving community center. The consultants pride themselves on gathering input from all stakeholders. The process, said Bivins, ensures that everyone has a seat at the visioning table, which leads to community by-in and long-term, positive results. After the three-day community visioning process culminates April 20, the community will be invited to attend a town hall. The DB consultants will share the plan for developing designs and images to convey the community input. The team of consultants will then create an illustrative visioning report containing before and potential after images. For more information, please contact Paulette Moss at info@ historicapalachicola.com or 855-APALACH. Special to the Times Louise Penny endeared herself to me from the first page of her debut book, Still Life (2007) and had me laughing out loud while I listened, as I peddled my exercise bicycle one morning. The setting for these charming Canadian whodunits is a small town called Three Pines. On page 14 she says Three Pines wasnt on any tourist map, being too far off any main road Sound familiar? She then says like Narnia, it is generally found unexpectedly I think it has something in common with Apalachicola, and the comparison with Narnia, the mythical local from the Chronicles of the same name, warmed my heart. Penny has won numerous awards, and has produced eight books, featuring her irascible, debonair Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. A gendarme from Quebec, who keeps being drawn back to Three Pines for yet another unexplained demise of a local resident, Gamache shows a love of the life at the local coffee shop and walks on the village green. The numerous characters who re-appear in the books include the Gabri and Olivier, the gay innkeepers, and Myrna, the sole black resident of Three Pines, a transplant from Montreal, who owns the book store and used to be a practicing psychologist. Then theres Ruth, but she could fill a whole column. Penny had a career for many years with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. She has won a number of awards including an Agatha, a New Blood Dagger and a Dilys in 2012. She lives in Quebec, where the dual language aspect of French and English, adds to her prose. She has a charming website you should check out if you are interested. I am a subscriber to Audible, an Amazon company, whose email ad in January said kill two resolutions with one stone exercise more and read more. They advertise heavily on some of the cable channels I watch, and I nally took the plunge, but it costs money. The Apalachicola Municipal Library has a sizable and always growing audio book collection, all donated, and other libraries offer downloadable audio books. The county library which has just added downloadable ebooks to their patron services, expects to follow up with audios as well. Speaking of our audio books, we could use more. The library is also asking for donations of books and audio books for the upcoming PALS book sale, Saturday, May 4, the same day as the Historic Apalachicola Tour of Homes. Volunteers are being sought to help customers on that day. Stop by the library and we will put you in touch with Butch, who runs PALS. Caty Greene is the librarian for the Apalachicola Municipal Library. To reach her, call 653-8436. State Representative Halsey Beshears (RMonticello) commended House Speaker Will Weatherford Monday on his decision to include a $1,400 per year pay increase for all state employees in the House Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2013-2014. This budget shows the legislatures commitment to rewarding state employees who have gone without a pay raise for too long, Beshears said. The legislature has had to make tough decisions to address budget de cits in recent years and because of those decisions we are now in a place to make responsible investments to move our state forward. One of those investments is increasing the pay of our state employees who have shown hard work and dedication to the people of Florida. State employees play a critical role in advancing our state. This money will help retain our valuable current employees and also attract the best employees possible in the future. I look forward to working with the Speaker and the Senate to assure this proposal becomes a reality.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, April 4, 2013 of fact when he suggested this was a state matter, too. This is in the hands of the Florida Department of Education which is usually the way anything is done with any employee. Professional practices with DOE will investigate it. White shared what she had been told by state education of cials. They said they were going to let the district do as it sees t, she said. She said the state had told her that her son would only have to take the test if he failed the 10th grade, otherwise the matter was considered shut. Do they get to read what actually happened? White asked. This is where the superintendent and the school attorney disagreed at the point where the story would come out. When the le becomes public record, student names are redacted, said Sanders, drawing no further restrictions on the content of the investigation. Marks said she has issued her ndings, and possible reprimands, and has sent them to the state. I submitted the plan of action and then that is now going in their direction for them to make the determination, to leave it to the district or anything in addition to that, said the superintendent. Gander said he knew of three other instances being investigated across Florida. Marks said state of cials will make a trip down here. They will come and conduct interviews. My material feeds into their material and then they decide at that point. They decide whether to conduct a secondary investigation or not. Sanders suggested the state inquiry was separate from the districts actions. Its public record, a separate investigation, she said. I didnt understand it that way, Marks said. Sanders told White the district investigation should be completed in a reasonable time and when completed it becomes public record. Marks said that it also says by statute I have to report it to the state. She asked that if a difference exists between what is public at the state and local levels, thats something to put in the policy book. White said she spoke in detail with state of cials, and now has concerns that her sons invalidated test would re ect badly on his record. If someones looking at it they cant decipher (whos at fault), she said. I want to make sure the teacher is reprimanded because its not acceptable. Gander supported her concerns. Id like some further explanation, he said. Im concerned with what would be on any childs record. Marks said that while an invalidated test is on the student record, Its possible the child was absent or never took the test. Theres not going to be a negative interpretation. Marks said Nick OGrady, the administrator who oversees testing, has spoken with the DOE and received answers to his questions. The entire board shares your concern, Gander told White. Im not here to conrm a sense of guilt. I am just, the accusation itself, (the school board is) not pleased with or this administration. We just have to hope it all comes to the proper conclusion for everybody. 8:00am to 4:00pm 8:00am to 4:00pm Harbor Breeze Assisted Living & Extended Care Providing Excellent Care to Seniors for Over 20 Years Professional Nurses Assistance w/ Activities of Daily Living Medication Administration Physical Therapy In-House Doctor Visits Courte ous Trained Staff Nutritious Home Cooked Meals Activities Program Daily Housekeeping Wander Guard System Sunday Church Service Respite Care Hospice Services And Much More .

The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements.

The February rate was down 0.2 percentage point from the revised January rate of 7.9 percent and was 1.3 percentage points lower than the year-ago rate of 9.0 percent. There were 729,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9.4 million. Floridas unemployment rate was tied with the national rate in February. Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,479,700 in February 2013, an increase of 7,800 jobs (+0.1 percent) over the month. The number of jobs in the state was up 128,100 from February 2012, an increase of 1.7 percent. Nationally, the number of jobs was up 1.5 percent over the year. Almost all of the 22 metro areas in the state had over-the-year job gains in February 2013. The areas with the largest gains were Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater (+33,200 jobs, +2.9 percent), Orlando, Kissimmee, Sanford (+20,500 jobs, +2.0 percent), and Jacksonville (+17,900 jobs, +3.0 percent). The only metro area experiencing an overthe-year job decline was Panama City, Lynn Haven, Panama City Beach (-700 jobs, -1.0 percent). JOBLESS from page A1 million from the pool of federal dollars recouped from nes to BP for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Pierce said the money could become available in six months or six years, and that the county may need to hire additional administrative staff if and when the funds become available. Funding for administration is capped at 3 percent of the money awarded to the county. Pierce and Shuler both said they believed the funds, once released, will remain available to the county until they are spent and there is no time limit on use of the money. Audience members questioned how much detail will be required in submissions for funding. Im going to submit projects but Im not gonna spend $10,000 on engineering fees before I submit, said Gene Langston, a land developer from Carrabelle. Sanders said a description of projects and estimate of costs would be needed. Pierce said no guidelines for submissions have been received from the federal government. Paul Parker, who represents the Tourist Development Council, suggested the RESTORE council come up with a pre-submission form for projects. He said Gulf Countys council had instituted that policy, but Pierce and Shuler both urged the council to delay submission of projects until federal guidelines were forthcoming. I dont care what you call it, people (who submit projects early) are going to have a sense of entitlement, said Shuler. The meeting ended after one hour and no date or place was set for a second RESTORE Council meeting. On March 28, Circuit Judge Angela Dempsey dismissed, with prejudice, a suit brought against the county by Apalachicola that sought to force the county to negotiate with the city under the terms of Florida Statute 164. That law encourages the resolution of con icts between local and regional governments without resorting to litigation. If the procedure created in Chapter 164 is not followed, the penalty and sole remedy is the award of attorneys fees and costs in a lawsuit on the underlying con ict, wrote Dempsey. Chapter 164 does not create an independent cause of action and additional lawyer of litigation. Apalachicola has not chosen a representative to the RESTORE council. The school board is represented by Pam Shiver. Lynn Martina speaks for the seafood dealers and Franklin County Seafood Workers Association President Shannon Harts eld is a seated member. Rick Watson represents the realtors association and Riverkeeper Dan Tonsmeire represents environmental interests. Because Tonsmeire is frequently away from the county, the commissioners appointed Robin Vroegop as a non-voting alternate and she represented Tonsmeire at the opening meeting Shiver and Carol Bar eld, from District 3, have both sent word they could not attend daytime meetings because they worked during the day. Other members of the board expressed concern about time commitment to the project. I cant afford to be here week after week and be away from my business. I cant sit here for three hours every month, said Parker. The council includes ve district representatives Bar eld; Pat OConnell from District 1, Suzanne Zimmerman from District 2, Ottice Amison from District 4 and Brenda LaPaz from District 5. Carrabelle is represented by Mayor Curley Messer. RESTORE from page A1 WRITING from page A1

In the cutline, the ticket agent is incorrectly identied as Joyce Counts; she was, in fact, Eunice Proctor Counts. Last week, she related this story about how this photograph came to be. In 1947, when Counts was 15 years old, A man drove up in a car in front of the theater and yelled, Hey Peaches. Everybody turned around and looked at him. He took the photo and drove away. He had a professional camera he was using. Weeks later, he mailed the photo to the Times. Its been circulating ever since. Voncile McLeod is standing next to the ticket booth. Evelyn Babb is the waitress seen through the window of the Louis Cafe. Congratulations from funds raised to hours volunteered to lives changed. Those in attendance were the rst to hear of this years nal campaign total and the rst to know which businesses and organizations would be walking away with awards.

Sachs, representing the UWBB candidate, announced victory over a cunning adversary, represented by talented Bay News 9 reporter, Troy Kinsey, in front of all of the attendees. A tough economy is always a challenge for an important charity such as our United Way but apathy is even a tougher challenger, Sachs said.

LANARK NEWS Jim Welsh Special to The Times This years symposium, Public Places, Private Spaces: A Garden Symposium is designed to increase appreciation of the gardens that ex ist within Apalachicola and to inspire their future development. Apalachicola, incorporated in 1831, is rich with residential and com mercial buildings that are architec tural examples of our heritage. The annual Historic Apalachicola Home & Garden Tour has been instrumen tal in presenting this communitys residential jewels. Each year more of these structures, in our down town and historic district, continue to be rejuvenated by both public and private entities. To date, little atten tion has been paid to the wealth of our outdoor public spaces and pri vate places. On May 3, we will begin to focus on these local gems our gardens. In conjunction with the tour, a Preservation Symposium will take place May 3. This all-day symposium, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., will focus on the variety of gardens in Apalachic ola ranging from private gardens to public spaces including The Commu nity Garden and The Chapman Bo tanical Gardens at the Orman House Historic State Park. Named for Dr. Alvan Chapman, author of Flora of the Southern United States, who re sided in Apalachicola until his death in 1899, rejuvenation of the gardens began in 2004 after years of neglect. Experts will share their knowl edge of building a world-class botani cal garden, planting an historic gar den, participating in the garden-totable movement, creating a garden club and emphasizing its importance to the community. The symposium will feature pan el discussions, golf cart garden tours, a luncheon at the Orman House and an afternoon of presentations by fea tured speakers. Evensong service at 5:30 p.m. May 3 at Trinity Episcopal Church provides the traditional opening for the home tour.

In 2010, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) directed staff to review the status of all statelisted species that had not undergone review in the past decade. To address this charge, staff conducted a literature review and solicited information from the public on the status of the Barbours map turtle. A Biological Review Group (BRG) of experts on the species was subsequently convened. The draft of the Barbours map turtle report was released on March 13. Barbours map turtle is currently listed as a Species of Special Concern by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), and its take is prohibited by FWC rules. The goal of this management plan is to improve or maintain the conservation status of Barbours map turtle so that the species is protected from extinction in Florida. In Sept. 2012, the Center for Biological Diversity led a lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the agencys failure to decide whether Barbours map turtle, should receive Endangered Species Act protection. Barbours map turtle (Graptemys barbouri) is a medium-sized freshwater turtle restricted to three rivers of the central Florida Panhandle and adjacent Alabama and Georgia, with most populations con ned to the Apalachicola River system. Principal threats include human take for food and the pet trade; water pollution, habitat alteration, injury by motorized boats and predation of turtles and nests by other animals. Historically only from the Apalachicola River drainage including Chattahoochee, Flint, and Chipola Rivers of Alabama, Georgia, and Florida but this turtle has recently been observed in the Ochlockonee and Choctawhatchee river systems, with an isolated report of a nesting female from the Wacissa River. It is unclear whether these areas were previously overlooked or stem from released pets. Barbours map turtle is remarkable for the extreme difference in size between sexes. Females, with shells up to 13 inches long are more than twice the size of males and 12 to16 times heavier than the relatively tiny males with shells under seven inches in length. Females have massive heads and jaws for crushing the shells of mollusks, their main food. Barbours map turtles are restricted to rivers, large streams, and associated impoundments. They inhabit only rivers that are suf ciently broad to be open to sunlight to support aquatic vegetation and have sunny sites for basking. Favored habitats include freeowing rivers with limestone outcrops, where mollusks are abundant, as well as some silty channels. Food items include a variety of aquatic invertebrates. Females require as long as 20 years to attain maturity, whereas males may mature in only three to four years. In addition to the aquatic habitat, Barbours map turtles require patches of well-drained upland soils receiving moderate to high solar exposure for nesting. Such sites frequently are no more than a few meters above or at the riverine edge of the oodplain, but in some cases may lie up to 300 feet or more inland. Known nesting sites included dredged spoil mounds and natural sandbars. Nesting extends from late April to early August with females producing up to 3 to 5 clutches of 3 to15 eggs per season.

They are vital to ensuring Floridas residents and visitors can safely enjoy hunting in Florida for years to come. And the fact that peninsular Florida is the only place in the world where hunters can bag an Osceola turkey (one of the ve subspecies in North America) makes it a top hunting destination. FWC of cers ll a vital role in the states economic as well as environmental future. They have been busy this season already, dealing with cases involving bait, trespassing, over-the-baglimit and hunting-out-ofseason in Glades, Santa Rosa, Alachua, Duval, Polk and Osceola counties. However, enforcing regulations isnt the only way in which FWC of cers contribute. The story of the wild turkey in Holmes County is a prime example of the tangible impact FWC of cers have made on conservation efforts and the relationship they have with stakeholders. In 1997, Of cer Larry Morris, an FWC of cer in Holmes County who has served since 1990, noticed a disturbing lack of wild turkeys in the county. Through his consistent communication with landowners and other members of the community, he learned that others shared his concern and were interested in doing something about it. Through biological surveys, FWC biologist Larry Perrin led a team that con rmed there were no wild turkeys anywhere in Holmes County. In 1998, the FWC closed Holmes County to turkey hunting. For the next two years, FWC biologists and of cers, including Of cer Larry Morris, worked with stakeholders and partner organizations like the National Wild Turkey Federation to trap 121 wild turkeys from other parts of the Panhandle and relocate them to Holmes County. The population boomed, as everyone had hoped. In addition to enforcement efforts after the turkeys were released, FWC of cers continued their outreach, passing along important information from FWC biologists. They spoke to landowners, hunters, farmers and others about the need to protect the restocked birds and encouraged them to improve the turkeys habitat through prescribed burning, timber thinning and planting crops that bene t turkeys. They received an overwhelming amount of support from the public people were taking ownership in the ght to conserve the areas natural resources. Today, the restoration of turkeys in Holmes County is considered a huge success. There is a 16-day spring hunting season, including quota hunts on state lands. Recent efforts have included annual population surveys, public meetings, one of which was held in Bonifay this past February, and continued communication by FWC of cers with members of their communities. While the FWCs other divisions handle the research and management of sh and wildlife populations, of cers in the Division of Law Enforcement are often involved in conservation projects like this one. As they interact with thousands of members of the public each year and spend countless hours patrolling all of Floridas diverse environments, they are at times the rst to learn about conservation issues. You can help with FWC conservation efforts too. Attend a regularly scheduled Commission meeting, introduce a child to the outdoors or talk to your local FWC of cers like Of cer Larry Morris. They can serve you better if they know of conservation concerns, suspected violations or other issues in your area. Their passion for the outdoors inspired them to become FWC of cers, and theyre here to work with you to protect our valuable natural resources.

Barbours map turtle struggles to survive Spring turkey season opens State waters off the coast of Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will open to recreational harvest of gag grouper starting April 1. This regional season will remain open through June 30, with the rst day of the closure being July 1. The season also includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters (from shore to nine nautical miles out) off the four counties may not be taken ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding the Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) set this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. The overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties, because it is the least densely populated region of Floridas Gulf Coast. The FWC also established this spring season to balance the economic and social needs of the region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Dec. 3. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not be open during the July-through-December season. The season in federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico also opens July 1 and will close when the annual catch target is projected to be met, which is expected to be sometime between Nov. 11 and Dec. 3. Gag grouper caught in state waters outside of the four-county region and in federal waters may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties during the federal season or the Julythrough-December state season. However, boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop in state waters off the four-county region and must have gear stowed while traveling through it to shore. Monroe County state waters are included in the Atlantic seasons and regulations for gag grouper and will not be open during the July through December season. The FWC is working with Floridas anglers to rebuild gag grouper populations in the Gulf of Mexico so they reach strong, sustainable levels. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits are 22 inches total length and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

Segree struck out six, and gave up the one run in the top of the sixth. The Wewa player broke up the no-hitter with a single to center eld, which advanced the runner who was on rst as a result of an error. That lead runner eventually stole home. Chena pitched a great game, said coach Lisa Sweatt, whose softball squad tallied 12 hits, and scored in each of the six innings. Krista Martina had four runs batted in, one of which came in the explosive bottom of the second inning when singles by Anna Lee, Maddie Newell, Christina Collins, Morgan Mock and Martina keyed a four-run blast for the Lady Seahawks. Mock nished with a pair of hits, as did Segree and Lee. Ally Millender posted a pair of RBIs. The week began March 22 at home, with a closefought 11-10 loss to Port St. Joe. The whole team fought the whole game, said Sweatt. We played great defense, everybody hit the ball. The whole game was back and forth. The Lady Seahawks broke out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second, after Millender walked and Ashley Carroll singled, and the two as well as Maddie Newell each advanced on an error. Collins then singled to right to score Millender. A double by Mock and a single by Summer Medley rounded out the rally. St. Joe responded with a seven-run outburst in the top of the third, but the Lady Seahawks came back with a ve-run explosion in the bottom of the fourth. Newell walked to start the inning, advancing Collins, who had reached base on an error. Martinas sacri ce advanced the two runners, and Mock plated Newell with a sacri ce of her own. Medley, Segree, Lee and Millender then each blasted singles to take a 9-8 lead. St. Joe scored two in the top of the sixth to go ahead 10-9, but the Seahawks tied it in the bottom of the inning, Mock and Segree walked, with Mock scoring on Lees RBI double to right eld. Two doubles by St. Joe gave them a one-run lead in the top of the seventh, enough to secure the win. On March 26 in Tallahassee, Franklin County came back from a 7-0 de cit to Godby before eventually falling 10-5. Morgan Mock did all she could to give the Seahawks a boost, but it wasnt enough to get past Class 4A Godby. She went 1-for-3, drove in one and scored one run. She tripled in the fourth inning. A two-run home run by Segree in the third inning, fueled the Seahawk comeback. Two runs in the top of the fourth helped the Seahawks close its de cit to 7-4. An RBI triple and a steal of home by Mock, who was playing catcher while Millender was in center eld, contributed to two more runs. After an error enabled the Seahawks to push across one run in the top of the seventh, Godby closed the game out when the pitcher recorded her fth and nal strikeout of the game. Segree had four strikeouts over ve innings, and gave up ve hits. Times Staff Report The St. Joseph Bay Golf Clubs Ladies Golf Association nished its year with the annual tournament with gusto!
