Although no tornado warning was issued, National Weather Service Forecaster Ron Block said that signatures for cyclonic winds were seen on radar, and special marine warnings were issued for Franklin County at 3:31 p.m., 3:43 p.m. and 3:51 p.m. The storms moved east at 30 miles per hour and battered both St. George Island and Eastpoint where witnesses reported quarter-sized hail. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recorded winds in excess of 60 mph. Emergency Management Director Pam Brownell said three older mobile homes were damaged and had to be covered with tarps. She praised Franklins Promise Coalition Executive Director Joe Taylor for on the ground action immediately after the storm. saying he helped to tarp the damaged homes. Sheds By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.co m Lottie is the poster girl for the 15th annual Apalachicola Antique and Classic Boat Show to be held this Saturday, April 20. She was a working girl, a steam tug built by Master Carpenter Charles Hobart in 1882 for the Cypress Lumber Company which was owned by the Ruge brothers, Herman and George, two of Apalachicolas wealthiest residents around the turn of the 20th century. The Lottie was 67 feet long, and 10 feet wide with a draft of just under six feet. She had a gross tonnage of 65 tons and net of 47. Two known pictures exist of the boat, the one shown here and a privately owned print from around 1903 of her pushing a coal barge in Columbus, Ga. Although she was constructed in Apalachicola, the Lottie certainly traveled and, in the rst decade of the century, her comings and goings were sometimes chronicled in the Times. On August 11, 1900, she transported a group of partiers to West Pass for an evening picnic and a swim. The guests included children of many prominent families, the Patton sisters, Mattie, Fannie and Ella; Winifred Kimball who later achieved fame as an author; May and Irene Marks; Fannie Porter and Mssrs. Stratton, Moore, Owen, Graves, Kimball, Cook, Floyd; John Daly and C.N. Clark. Later that year, her crew reportedly caught a mysterious, unknown sh with sharp teeth and a tail like a rat in West Pass, possibly a deep water species. Local waterman Joe Barber recalls hearing her name. He said, when he was a boy, around 1925, the Lottie spent most of her time in Carrabelle. In addition to pushing barges, she was used to tow deep-drafted lumber ships into and out of Carrabelle harbor for loading. The Lottie carried a crew of eight. Her rst captain was Charles Marks, who was followed by John Fisher, who By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.co m Tempers ared on Tuesday morning during the discussion of a possible new ice machine in Eastpoint. During the regular discussion of Planning and Zoning (P and Z) recommendations, Bob Allen, owner of property located at the northwest corner of Highway 98 and North Bayshore Drive, demanded to know why P and Z recommended denial of his request to install an ice machine there. Allen said his project was not given a fair review. People were telling us two weeks in advance P and Z was opposed to this business, he said. He said his lot was zoned commercial and large enough to accommodate the machine and traf c. County Planner Alan Pierce said the issue was traf c ow. Its a very busy intersection, he said. Pierce said the plans presented to the commission on Tuesday had been modi ed to address the issue of traf c since the P and Z met earlier this month. Commissioner Pinki Jackel, whose district includes the Eastpoint site, said that since the plans contained new information, they should be sent back to P and Z for review. But Allen protested. The issue is time, he said. This is the beginning of our season and my ice machine is sitting under a tree. Commission Chair Cheryl Sanders asked if P and Z board members had said they were opposed to Allens project in advance of the formal discussion. He was adamant that they had. Pierce said P and Z should have tabled the request, and given AlPSC set to consider WMSI water rates By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@starfl.co m The states Public Service Commission is expected to consider next week in Tallahassee a series of recently-issued recommendations from PSC staff regarding increases in rates for St. George island customers of Water Management Services Inc. The April 12 PSC staff recommendations come after their several months of review following a protest lodged by the PSC Of ce of Public Counsel following the PSCs initial Aug. 2012 rate decisions. Residents of St. George Island were vocal at a Jan. 2013 hearing on the island where they confronted WMSI owner Gene Brown. The hearing was necessary because the Of ce of Public Counsel had protested four issues, and WMSI eight issues, arising out of last years granting of a rate hike to WMS. As it stands now, the PSC staff is set to recommend that WMSI receive a 45.8 percent increase in revenue,, to that test year revenue of $1.3 million be granted a nearly $600,000 increase, to $1.9 million. In its ling, WMSI requested a revenue requirement to generate annual revenue of $2.02 million, which was based on a a revenue increase of $714,035, or approximately 54.69 percent. The PSC staffers wrote that their recommendation will allow WMSI the opportunity to recover its expenses and earn a 5.61 percent return on its investment in rate base. If adopted this will mean based facility charges will rise for 5/8 X 3/4 meters to $36.60, less than WMSIs recommendation of $43.06 but slightly more than the rate adopted on a temporary basis in January. For 3/4 meters, the rate would got to $54.90, also slightly Ice machine prompts special P and Z meeting WORKING GIRL FLORIDA MEMORY PROJECT | Special to the Times Steam tug Lottie typi es working vessels See LOTTIE A2 See ICE A2 LOIS SWOBODA | The Times An oyster boat damaged in Sundays storm.

Pierce said the plans presented may have been vague and confusing to P and Z board members. We showed them the site plan and were told it was appropriate before the meeting, said Mike Hob son of Port St. Joe, whose company builds the ice machines. I think it needs to go back (to P & Z) with the new information. said Commis sioner Smokey Parrish. Sanders told Pierce to arrange an emergency meeting of P and Z to ad dress Allens request. P and Z members should to be told to refrain from public comment, she said. If they cant do that, we need to nd new board members. Pierce said because P and Z is a volunteer board, he couldnt say exactly when it would be possible to obtain a quorum. He said he would have to call indi vidual members. Parrish asked that Pierce attend the emer gency P and Z meeting. Jackel said Preble Rish; the countys engineering consultant, should send a representative as well. ICE from page A1 LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Bob Allen, left, Mike Hobson, center, and County Planner Alan Pierce explained changes to plans for a new ice machine in Eastpoint. more than the temporary rates now in effect, but less than the $64.59 WMSI sought. For 1 meters, the rates would go to $91.50, and for larger meters they would go to $183, each less than what WMSI sought, but more than the temporary rates now in effect. PSC staff also plans to recommend a hike in the plant capacity charges, for residential customers to $3,387 and for all others to $9.68 per gallon per day. The main extension charge for residential customers would be $1,523, and for other $4.35 per gallon per day. The cost of residential meter installation would rise to $400. In the highly controversial issue of advances made by WMSI to other of Browns companies, which he ar gued were necessary to maintain sound scal manage ment, the PSC staff wrote that By advancing funds to the utilitys president and associated companies while it already was in a nancially precarious situation, WMSI exacerbated its nancial distress and delayed necessary infrastructure improvements. Advancing cash to the president and associated companies in lieu of making required debt service payments and needed capital improvements has degraded the credit prole of the utility and adversely affected the utility and is contrary to operating in the public interest. WMSIs failure to replace the water storage tank has threatened utility operations as well as the safety of the ratepayers. Based on the foregoing, staff recom mends the presidents salary be reduced by 15 percent. Furthermore, absent (PSC) authority to prohibit ad vances to the president and associated companies for non-utility purposes, the PSC should require WMSI to le quarterly reports delineating all advances, loans, investments, notes receivable and accounts receivable between WMSI and the president and associated com panies including the date, amount, and reason for the transaction(s). RATES from page A1 Workshops offer disaster preparation By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.co m On Friday, April 5, about 40 volunteers gathered at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Re serve headquarters to ex perience a mock disaster. Trainer Adraine Kre glo, a consultant provided through the Volunteer Floridas Best Neighbor hoods grant awarded to Franklins Promise Coali tion, led the exercise. Kreglo has run a vol unteer center in Manatee County for more than 30 years. Participants were in troduced to Stormsmart Coast internet resource and briefed on techniques for dealing with spontane ous volunteers. Kreglo explained that in some situations, volun teers can become a liability rather than an asset. Often, limiting access to chaotic post-disaster areas is more important and difcult than nding willing workers. She said that even if asked to stay away, people with affection for the area may arrive on scene wanting to help. An overabundance of some supplies, looters and people who are confused or distraught also present challenges in the after math of a storm or other disaster. Kreglo said she prefers pen and paper commu nication during training sessions to high-tech tools because electricity is so frequently lost during di sasters. In some cases I have literally had to use runners for communica tion, she said. The importance of safety brieng and proper clothing and equipment was also emphasized. Volunteers played the rolls of dispatchers and problem volunteers as the community prepared to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Zeke. Our goal is to bring to gether a network of volun teers from across the coun ty to assist in planning for, responding to and recover ing from disasters, said Franklins Promise Execu tive Director Joe Taylor The next training oppor tunity will be at 9 a.m. April 30 at Carrabelle City Hall, where points of emergency food and material distribu tion will be designated in Lanark, Carrabelle, East point and Apalachicola. Anyone wishing to work with the group can call Franklins Promise Coali tion at 653-0176.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, April 18, 2013 A Page 4 Section Special to the Times Its spring in the Florida Panhandle, and that means its nesting season for many species of shorebirds and seabirds. Franklin County contains some of the most signi cant nesting areas in the Panhandle, including the old St. George Island bridge causeway and Bird Island dredge spoil island, both managed by the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve. From April 1August 31, both areas are closed to all human and animal traf c. The old causeway is conferred the special designation of being a Critical Wildlife Area due to the high number of threatened and endangered birds that nest here and marine patrol will enforce this designation. Least terns, gull-billed terns, sandwich terns, Caspian terns, royal terns, black skimmers, American oystercatchers, and laughing gulls nest on the causeway and all species but the laughing gull are protected by state or federal law. In the past decade these birds have laid more than 3000 nests per year in this area. Brown pelicans and American oystercatchers nest on Bird Island and are also both protected species. The brown pelican colony on Bird Island has grown in size in recent years and last year 700 nests were laid by the birds. Bird nests and colonies are very susceptible to human disturbance. Even if you arent physically harming a nest, a nearby presence can cause damage. If parents are scared and y off of their nests, eggs and chicks are vulnerable to harm from species such as laughing gulls and ants. At their young age, eggs and chicks can also be overexposed to the hot summer sun and suffer from dehydration and death. This is why areas that are posted with bird signs leave a wide buffer around nesting areas. If solitary nesters are disturbed repeatedly, in addition to predation and exposure threats, the adults may abandon a nest and any eggs in it. These eggs will not hatch without the parents help. If you are near a bird nesting area and observe parents ushing off the nest, please back off until you are far enough away that the parents settle back down on their nests, and respect bird signs in posted areas. Many bird species have lost nesting habitat due to human development on our beaches. For this reason it is very important that we give these birds a chance to nest undisturbed in their remaining nesting areas. In addition to these areas managed by ANERR, Franklin County contains many additional important nesting areas including Flagg Island, Lanark Reef, parts of Dog Island and the St. George State Park, and more. Please respect all areas posted with bird signs and areas where birds are nesting. ANERR works in partnership with many other agencies and volunteers who monitor and protect our birds. For more information about our local and state shorebirds, please call ANERR at 670-7700 or visit the Florida Shorebird Alliance partnership website at www. shorebirdalliance.org. Megan Lamb works for NOAAs Environmental Cooperative Science Center and is based at the Apalachicola NERR in Eastpoint. Please remember, springtime is for the birds Special to the Times Marcia Johnson, Clerk of the Circuit Court, announced the April 1 mandatory date for electronic ling of court documents in civil, family law, dependency, and probate cases, was very successful. More than 27 lings totaling 31 documents were electronically led on the rst day, Monday, April 1, and the documents continue to come in. Supreme Court Rules Opinion No. SC11-399 implemented mandatory electronic ling procedures for all documents led in Floridas courts. While attorneys are required to electronically le case documents in any civil, family law, or probate case with the Clerk of Court, those parties who represent themselves will still le paper documents. Electronic ling will become mandatory in criminal cases starting October 2013. Johnson reported her of ce staff has been busy adapting to the new electronic ling (E-Filing) process and working diligently to ensure lawyers have an easy transition as well. She has updated her website to provide a link to EFiling information. Electronic ling will hopefully enable clerks throughout the state to increase timeliness in the processing of cases, and provide improved service to the public and the judiciary, as the courts move toward a paperless system in the future.

The park lies just east of Carrabelle on Highway 98. You can even get there on the new sidewalk all the way from downtown. Many of you may know about its baseball capabilities and activities. However, it has a playground for children that is outstanding. There is a restroom, drinking water fountains, benches in the shade, and is scenic and restful. Most of all is the incredible walking path around the perimeter! The path is level no twisted ankles! It is just about a mile long (7/8ths). There are exercise stations along the path with various activities. This morning an eagle watched me as I walked by. So another pearl in the necklace that is Carrabelle / Franklin County Enjoy! John Hitron Carrabelle Correction In the April 11 edition of the Times a story headlined TDC reverses stand on island sign, the details regarding the cost of purchasing and installing three signs at St. George Island Lighthouse Park were incorrectly reported. The facts are that the cost of purchasing and installing the three signs for the visitor center, lighthouse museum and TDC was $6,717. Of this total, the St. George Island Lighthouse Association paid $4,567 and the visitor center, drawing on TDC funding, paid $2,149.

Schooner to lead memorial otilla Saturday A memorial otilla, to honor and remember all who have died at sea, will be Saturday, April 20, when the 1877 Gulf Coast Schooner Governor Stone will be in Apalachicola as part of the 15th annual Antique and Classic Boat Show at Riverfront Park on Water Street. Capt. Robin Walbridge, lost at sea when the square rigged ship HMS Bounty sank during Hurricane Sandy, came to Apalachicola in the 1980s.

He was a wonderful sailor and teacher. The Friends of the Governor Stone, Inc., current owners and operators of the vessel, want to honor his memory by sailing out on Apalachicola Bay and casting owers on the water. We invite all who wish to join us to bring their boats to make a otilla to remember family members and friends lost at sea. Natural owers please no plastic.

Wild hog-dog hunts on Budd are set for May 16-19, June 20-23, July 18-21, Aug. 15-18 and Sept. 19-22. On the nearby Ochlockonee River SGA, the still hunter quota has been increased to 50 hunters per hunt, and the hunt area now includes the area south of Interstate 10. This years open hunt dates are May 10-12, June 14-16, July 12-14, Aug. 9-11 and Sept. 13-15. Hog hunts also are set for the Aucilla SGA in Jefferson County and Blackwater SGA in Okaloosa and Santa Rosa counties.

Most anglers are using casting spoons and mac trees for multipul catches at once. Red fish were schooling in the Pig Island area late this past weekend and aslo good numbers of trout can be found here as well. Most locals are reporting that river levels are almost back to normal. Good reports from Howard Creek and the Brothers River and Jackson River have painted bream and good catfish in the 12-15 pound range coming from shallow water. Lake Wimico had had several reports of decent sized bass this week. Special to The News Herald Anglers and divers have 19 new reefs to visit thanks to the efforts of the Mexico Beach Arti cial Reef Association (MBARA), Mexico Beach, and support from numerous organizations and members. On Saturday, 62 reef modules worth more than $91,000, found new resting places off the shores of Mexico Beach. Mexico Beach received a $60,000 grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Fund and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The rest came from donations, membership, fund raising and three shing tournaments the annual MBARA King sh Tournament, the Mexico Beach Marina Offshore Classic and the 98 Real Estate Group Ling Ding. Reef modules of varying design, each weighing more than 5,000 pounds, were placed in 19 locations, with one to eight structures submerged at each site. The reef modules, all made with steel reinforced concrete and limestone rock, include pyramids, rectangular grouper modules, layer-cake shaped ecosystems and a new hybrid reef that consists of a grouper module topped by a small ecosystem. This is the rst time the hybrid reefs have been deployed in Florida, and MBARA research divers are anxious to nd out what type of marine life will be attracted to them. According to MBARA research diver Carol Cox, Different structures attract different sh. Amberjack and red snappers are attracted to taller structures such as the pyramids, the grouper units act as low limestone ledges that are preferred by groupers, and ecosystems are a magnet for black sea bass. We nd that placing different types of structures together has a dynamic effect, greatly increasing diversity on the reef. We hope the hybrid reef with its height, ledge and crevices will attract the greatest diversity we have seen on any single arti cial reef. During this deployment, MBARA added reefs to six existing sites that have become dif cult to nd over the years. MBARA president, Bob Cox, said, It is important to maintain these reefs in honor of the people they were named after. Older reefs often were made with lighter or smaller materials that could be moved by powerful storms or covered by sand. The deployment was overseen by Bill Horn of the FWC along with MBARA volunteers Bob and Carol Cox, Ron Childs, Jimmy Nicholson, and Captain Charlene Burke. MBARA volunteers were involved in every step of the arti cial reef deployment--applying for permits, writing grants, and raising matching funds to earn points when competing for grants. According to Horn, Excellent planning by MBARA and excellent execution by Walter Marine made the project a great success. To get coordinates for the new reefs, visit MBARAs website at www. mbara.org. MBARA deploys artificial reefs P hotos by CAROL AND BOB COX | Special to The News Herald A pyramid-shaped Florida Limestone Artificial Reef is deployed. Beautiful indigo buntings have been spotted across the county this month during their spring migration. I am hardly an expert on birds but, since I am trying to learn more, I thought Id share my research with the readers of this column. The indigo bunting (Passerina cyanea), is a four to ve-inch long, seed-eating bird in the same family as cardinals. Carrabelles Rod Gasche sent the newspaper photographs he captured of a male indigo bunting and they are lovely. Earlier this month, a large group reportedly passed through the Sugar Hill Campground in Dr. Julian Bruce St. George Island State Park. By the way, according to Whatbird.com, a ock of buntings is called a decoration, mural or sacri ce of buntings. I can certainly understand the rst two names. Female indigo buntings are a mousy brown color, but the males are real show-offs. During spring and summer, when they are trying to attract a mate, the males sport iridescent black plumage. Depending on the angle of the light, they may appear turquoise, black or any shade in between. This is an optical illusion caused by light diffraction. The males are also very vocal and sing long, complex songs, especially during the early morning hours when, according to Cornell Universitys Allaboutbirds.com website, they may produce up to 200 songs per hour. By the way, you can hear some of those songs at both Allaboutbirds and Whatbird. Indigo buntings migrate to South Florida and South and Central America during the winter, but can be found almost anywhere in North America east of the Rocky Mountains during the warm months. These birds often migrate at night, navigating by the stars, and can become confused under overcast conditions. Preferred habitats include brushy slopes, old pastures and elds grown to scrub, woodland clearings, and forest edges adjacent to elds. During migration large ocks may feed in agricultural elds or on lawns. The diet of the indigo bunting consists primarily of insects during the summer and seeds during the winter. They forage in trees, shrubs and on the ground. Researchers at Cornell tell us that you can attract indigo buntings to your yard with feeders containing small seeds such as thistle or live mealworms. They will also readily feed on saf ower, apple, suet, millet and peanuts.

In Port St. Joe Tuesday night, Liberty County pitcher Kayla Johnson twirled a no-hitter against Franklin County, to notch a 6-0 win and advance in District 4, Class 1A ball. No Lady Seahawks batter was able to locate Johnsons pitches during the game as she struck out 11 batters and walked two to preserve her teams spotless district record. She got Franklin County senior Anna Lee to strike out for the nal out of the game. Liberty stayed on top until the nal out after taking the lead in the rst, scoring two runs on a passed ball and a sacri ce y by Johnson. Liberty tacked on another two runs in the fth when Bri Whatley doubled, bringing home Johnson. On Monday night, the Lady Seahawks varsity, under the direction of coach Lisa Sweatt, refused to relinquish the lead after grabbing it early against Bozeman, recording a 9-2 victory. With seven runs in the rst three innings, Franklin County left no doubt about the eventual outcome. An RBI single by senior Chena Segree, a steal of home by junior Ally Millender, and an RBI single by Lee during the rst inning helped the Lady Seahawks put some runs on the board early. Segree reached base three times in the game, and scored two runs and had one RBI. Franklin County tacked on another four runs in the third. A bases loaded walk scored Lee to get the Seahawks on the board in the inning. That was followed up by Ashley Carrolls single, scoring Summer Medley. Franklin County added two more runs in the top of the fourth. Lee kicked things off with a double, plating Chena Segree.

Although no tornado warning was issued, National Weather Service Forecaster Ron Block said that signatures for cyclonic winds were seen on radar, and special marine warnings were issued for Franklin County at 3:31 p.m., 3:43 p.m. and 3:51 p.m. The storms moved east at 30 miles per hour and battered both St. George Island and Eastpoint where witnesses reported quarter-sized hail. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recorded winds in excess of 60 mph. Emergency Management Director Pam Brownell said three older mobile homes were damaged and had to be covered with tarps. She praised Franklins Promise Coalition Executive Director Joe Taylor for on the ground action immediately after the storm. saying he helped to tarp the damaged homes. Sheds By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.com Lottie is the poster girl for the 15th annual Apalachicola Antique and Classic Boat Show to be held this Saturday, April 20. She was a working girl, a steam tug built by Master Carpenter Charles Hobart in 1882 for the Cypress Lumber Company which was owned by the Ruge brothers, Herman and George, two of Apalachicolas wealthiest residents around the turn of the 20th century. The Lottie was 67 feet long, and 10 feet wide with a draft of just under six feet. She had a gross tonnage of 65 tons and net of 47. Two known pictures exist of the boat, the one shown here and a privately owned print from around 1903 of her pushing a coal barge in Columbus, Ga. Although she was constructed in Apalachicola, the Lottie certainly traveled and, in the rst decade of the century, her comings and goings were sometimes chronicled in the Times. On August 11, 1900, she transported a group of partiers to West Pass for an evening picnic and a swim. The guests included children of many prominent families, the Patton sisters, Mattie, Fannie and Ella; Winifred Kimball who later achieved fame as an author; May and Irene Marks; Fannie Porter and Mssrs. Stratton, Moore, Owen, Graves, Kimball, Cook, Floyd; John Daly and C.N. Clark. Later that year, her crew reportedly caught a mysterious, unknown sh with sharp teeth and a tail like a rat in West Pass, possibly a deep water species. Local waterman Joe Barber recalls hearing her name. He said, when he was a boy, around 1925, the Lottie spent most of her time in Carrabelle. In addition to pushing barges, she was used to tow deep-drafted lumber ships into and out of Carrabelle harbor for loading. The Lottie carried a crew of eight.

During the regular discussion of Planning and Zoning (P and Z) recommendations, Bob Allen, owner of property located at the northwest corner of Highway 98 and North Bayshore Drive, demanded to know why P and Z recommended denial of his request to install an ice machine there. Allen said his project was not given a fair review. People were telling us two weeks in advance P and Z was opposed to this business, he said. He said his lot was zoned commercial and large enough to accommodate the machine and traf c. County Planner Alan Pierce said the issue was traf c ow. Its a very busy intersection, he said. Pierce said the plans presented to the commission on Tuesday had been modi ed to address the issue of traf c since the P and Z met earlier this month. Commissioner Pinki Jackel, whose district includes the Eastpoint site, said that since the plans contained new information, they should be sent back to P and Z for review. But Allen protested. The issue is time, he said. This is the beginning of our season and my ice machine is sitting under a tree. Commission Chair Cheryl Sanders asked if P and Z board members had said they were opposed to Allens project in advance of the formal discussion. He was adamant that they had.

The April 12 PSC staff recommendations come after their several months of review following a protest lodged by the PSC Of ce of Public Counsel following the PSCs initial Aug. 2012 rate decisions. Residents of St. George Island were vocal at a Jan. 2013 hearing on the island where they confronted WMSI owner Gene Brown. The hearing was necessary because the Of ce of Public Counsel had protested four issues, and WMSI eight issues, arising out of last years granting of a rate hike to WMS. As it stands now, the PSC staff is set to recommend that WMSI receive a 45.8 percent increase in revenue,, to that test year revenue of $1.3 million be granted a nearly $600,000 increase, to $1.9 million. In its ling, WMSI requested a revenue requirement to generate annual revenue of $2.02 million, which was based on a a revenue increase of $714,035, or approximately 54.69 percent. The PSC staffers wrote that their recommendation will allow WMSI the opportunity to recover its expenses and earn a 5.61 percent return on its investment in rate base. If adopted this will mean based facility charges will rise for 5/8 X 3/4 meters to $36.60, less than WMSIs recommendation of $43.06 but slightly more than the rate adopted on a temporary basis in January. For 3/4 meters, the rate would got to $54.90, also slightly Ice machine prompts special P and Z meeting WORKING GIRLFLORIDA MEMORY PROJECT | Special to the Times Steam tug Lottie typi es working vesselsSee LOTTIE A2 See ICE A2LOIS SWOBODA | The TimesAn oyster boat damaged in Sundays storm.

LOTTIE from page A3len an opportunity to make changes to his plan rather than deny it. Pierce said the plans presented may have been vague and confusing to P and Z board members. We showed them the site plan and were told it was appropriate before the meeting, said Mike Hobson of Port St. Joe, whose company builds the ice machines. I think it needs to go back (to P & Z) with the new information. said Commissioner Smokey Parrish. Sanders told Pierce to arrange an emergency meeting of P and Z to address Allens request. P and Z members should to be told to refrain from public comment, she said. If they cant do that, we need to nd new board members. Pierce said because P and Z is a volunteer board, he couldnt say exactly when it would be possible to obtain a quorum. He said he would have to call individual members. Parrish asked that Pierce attend the emergency P and Z meeting. Jackel said Preble Rish; the countys engineering consultant, should send a representative as well. IICE from page A1LOIS SWOBODA | The TimesBob Allen, left, Mike Hobson, center, and County Planner Alan Pierce explained changes to plans for a new ice machine in Eastpoint. more than the temporary rates now in effect, but less than the $64.59 WMSI sought. For 1 meters, the rates would go to $91.50, and for larger meters they would go to $183, each less than what WMSI sought, but more than the temporary rates now in effect. PSC staff also plans to recommend a hike in the plant capacity charges, for residential customers to $3,387 and for all others to $9.68 per gallon per day. The main extension charge for residential customers would be $1,523, and for other $4.35 per gallon per day. The cost of residential meter installation would rise to $400. In the highly controversial issue of advances made by WMSI to other of Browns companies, which he argued were necessary to maintain sound scal management, the PSC staff wrote that By advancing funds to the utilitys president and associated companies while it already was in a nancially precarious situation, WMSI exacerbated its nancial distress and delayed necessary infrastructure improvements. Advancing cash to the president and associated companies in lieu of making required debt service payments and needed capital improvements has degraded the credit prole of the utility and adversely affected the utility and is contrary to operating in the public interest. WMSIs failure to replace the water storage tank has threatened utility operations as well as the safety of the ratepayers. Based on the foregoing, staff recommends the presidents salary be reduced by 15 percent. Furthermore, absent (PSC) authority to prohibit advances to the president and associated companies for non-utility purposes, the PSC should require WMSI to le quarterly reports delineating all advances, loans, investments, notes receivable and accounts receivable between WMSI and the president and associated companies including the date, amount, and reason for the transaction(s). RATES from page A1 Workshops offer disaster preparationBy LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.com On Friday, April 5, about 40 volunteers gathered at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve headquarters to experience a mock disaster. Trainer Adraine Kreglo, a consultant provided through the Volunteer Floridas Best Neighborhoods grant awarded to Franklins Promise Coalition, led the exercise. Kreglo has run a volunteer center in Manatee County for more than 30 years. Participants were introduced to Stormsmart Coast internet resource and briefed on techniques for dealing with spontaneous volunteers. Kreglo explained that in some situations, volunteers can become a liability rather than an asset. Often, limiting access to chaotic post-disaster areas is more important and difcult than nding willing workers. She said that even if asked to stay away, people with affection for the area may arrive on scene wanting to help. An overabundance of some supplies, looters and people who are confused or distraught also present challenges in the aftermath of a storm or other disaster. Kreglo said she prefers pen and paper communication during training sessions to high-tech tools because electricity is so frequently lost during disasters. In some cases I have literally had to use runners for communication, she said. The importance of safety brieng and proper clothing and equipment was also emphasized. Volunteers played the rolls of dispatchers and problem volunteers as the community prepared to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Zeke. Our goal is to bring together a network of volunteers from across the county to assist in planning for, responding to and recovering from disasters, said Franklins Promise Executive Director Joe Taylor The next training opportunity will be at 9 a.m. April 30 at Carrabelle City Hall, where points of emergency food and material distribution will be designated in Lanark, Carrabelle, Eastpoint and Apalachicola. Anyone wishing to work with the group can call Franklins Promise Coalition at 653-0176.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.comThursday, April 18, 2013 APage 4SectionSpecial to the TimesIts spring in the Florida Panhandle, and that means its nesting season for many species of shorebirds and seabirds. Franklin County contains some of the most signi cant nesting areas in the Panhandle, including the old St. George Island bridge causeway and Bird Island dredge spoil island, both managed by the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve. From April 1August 31, both areas are closed to all human and animal traf c. The old causeway is conferred the special designation of being a Critical Wildlife Area due to the high number of threatened and endangered birds that nest here and marine patrol will enforce this designation. Least terns, gull-billed terns, sandwich terns, Caspian terns, royal terns, black skimmers, American oystercatchers, and laughing gulls nest on the causeway and all species but the laughing gull are protected by state or federal law. In the past decade these birds have laid more than 3000 nests per year in this area. Brown pelicans and American oystercatchers nest on Bird Island and are also both protected species. The brown pelican colony on Bird Island has grown in size in recent years and last year 700 nests were laid by the birds. Bird nests and colonies are very susceptible to human disturbance. Even if you arent physically harming a nest, a nearby presence can cause damage. If parents are scared and y off of their nests, eggs and chicks are vulnerable to harm from species such as laughing gulls and ants. At their young age, eggs and chicks can also be overexposed to the hot summer sun and suffer from dehydration and death. This is why areas that are posted with bird signs leave a wide buffer around nesting areas. If solitary nesters are disturbed repeatedly, in addition to predation and exposure threats, the adults may abandon a nest and any eggs in it. These eggs will not hatch without the parents help. If you are near a bird nesting area and observe parents ushing off the nest, please back off until you are far enough away that the parents settle back down on their nests, and respect bird signs in posted areas. Many bird species have lost nesting habitat due to human development on our beaches. For this reason it is very important that we give these birds a chance to nest undisturbed in their remaining nesting areas. In addition to these areas managed by ANERR, Franklin County contains many additional important nesting areas including Flagg Island, Lanark Reef, parts of Dog Island and the St. George State Park, and more. Please respect all areas posted with bird signs and areas where birds are nesting. ANERR works in partnership with many other agencies and volunteers who monitor and protect our birds. For more information about our local and state shorebirds, please call ANERR at 670-7700 or visit the Florida Shorebird Alliance partnership website at www. shorebirdalliance.org. Megan Lamb works for NOAAs Environmental Cooperative Science Center and is based at the Apalachicola NERR in Eastpoint.Please remember, springtime is for the birdsSpecial to the TimesMarcia Johnson, Clerk of the Circuit Court, announced the April 1 mandatory date for electronic ling of court documents in civil, family law, dependency, and probate cases, was very successful. More than 27 lings totaling 31 documents were electronically led on the rst day, Monday, April 1, and the documents continue to come in. Supreme Court Rules Opinion No. SC11-399 implemented mandatory electronic ling procedures for all documents led in Floridas courts. While attorneys are required to electronically le case documents in any civil, family law, or probate case with the Clerk of Court, those parties who represent themselves will still le paper documents. Electronic ling will become mandatory in criminal cases starting October 2013. Johnson reported her of ce staff has been busy adapting to the new electronic ling (E-Filing) process and working diligently to ensure lawyers have an easy transition as well. She has updated her website to provide a link to EFiling information. Electronic ling will hopefully enable clerks throughout the state to increase timeliness in the processing of cases, and provide improved service to the public and the judiciary, as the courts move toward a paperless system in the future.

In case you havent checked out the Kendrick Recreational Park, Go Today. The park lies just east of Carrabelle on Highway 98. You can even get there on the new sidewalk all the way from downtown. Many of you may know about its baseball capabilities and activities. However, it has a playground for children that is outstanding. There is a restroom, drinking water fountains, benches in the shade, and is scenic and restful. Most of all is the incredible walking path around the perimeter! The path is level no twisted ankles! It is just about a mile long (7/8ths). There are exercise stations along the path with various activities. This morning an eagle watched me as I walked by.

The facts are that the cost of purchasing and installing the three signs for the visitor center, lighthouse museum and TDC was $6,717.

Director Pam Brownell said TME has been the training and exercise coordinator for the county for three years and is paid out of the Homeland Security Grant. Emergency Disaster Strategies, LLC (EDS) will act as the debris project manager for the county during a declared disaster, which is FEMA reimbursable. Phil Worley, owner of EDS, is an Alligator Point resident, and was the debris specialist for the State of Florida before retiring. Commissioners also tapped EDS to develop an approved FEMA Debris Plan for the county. The rm will be paid $5,000 to be paid out of FEMA funds received for last years storm damage. Brownell said since Hurricane Sandy, a county debris plan is required by FEMA.Two emergency workshops plannedA workshop for the providers serving our special needs population is scheduled for April 24 at 10 a.m. at the Emergency Management of ce.

Law enforcement of cers from more than 300 Florida agencies all participate in the state-wide run, as more than 5,000 of cers carry the torch on a 1500-mile relay through 66 counties. Taking part this year, on the run from the historic Chapman Schools building to Battery Park, were, from the sheriffs of ce, Sgt. Wayne Nash and Deputies Chase Richards and Casey Harrell. From the Franklin Correctional Institutions RRT (Rapid Response Team) were Capt. Corry Fletcher, Sergeants Brandy Austin, James Trest, Erik Crosby, Carl Bankston and Kenneth Malphurs, and Of cers Wade Blevins, Shawn Kimbrel, Erik Howard, Willie McNair, Nashon Bankston and Justin Mathes. Also running were FCIs K-9 Team members Sgt. William Daniels (holding torch in photo at right) and Of cers Shawn Chisholm and John Harris, as well as FCIs Edward Watson, assistant warden of operations. Funds are generated through contributions from individuals and businesses along the way and through sales of the popular Torch Run T-shirts and caps. This event is held each year prior to Special Olympics Florida State Summer Games. Nash took part in the capital leg of the torch run in Tallahassee April 11, and will run in the nal leg of the torch run in Orlando May 17, when of cers from around the state join together to bring the Flame of Hope into the stadium.

Special to the TimesThe Panhandle Players will present C.B. Gilfords Jury Room, this Friday through Sunday, April 1921 at the Dixie Theatre in Apalachicola.

The jurors agree to her request to re-enact the crime right there. Props are brought in including the actual murder weapon. The actress becomes the accused. The Foreman (Gary Niblack) takes the part of the murdered man, and as the re-enactment proceeds, some people begin to lose themselves in their parts.

Capt. Robin Walbridge, lost at sea when the  square rigged ship HMS Bounty sank during Hurricane Sandy, came to Apalachicola in the 1980s.

He was a wonderful sailor and teacher. The Friends of the Governor Stone, Inc., current owners and operators of the vessel, want to honor his memory by sailing out on Apalachicola Bay and casting owers on the water. We invite all who wish to join us to bring their boats to make a otilla to remember family members and friends lost at sea. Natural owers please no plastic.

Most anglers are using casting spoons and mac trees for multipul catches at once. Red fish were schooling in the Pig Island area late this past weekend and aslo good numbers of trout can be found here as well. Most locals are reporting that river levels are almost back to normal. Good reports from Howard Creek and the Brothers River and Jackson River have painted bream and good catfish in the 12-15 pound range coming from shallow water. Lake Wimico had had several reports of decent sized bass this week.Special to The News HeraldAnglers and divers have 19 new reefs to visit thanks to the efforts of the Mexico Beach Arti cial Reef Association (MBARA), Mexico Beach, and support from numerous organizations and members. On Saturday, 62 reef modules worth more than $91,000, found new resting places off the shores of Mexico Beach. Mexico Beach received a $60,000 grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Fund and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The rest came from donations, membership, fund raising and three shing tournaments the annual MBARA King sh Tournament, the Mexico Beach Marina Offshore Classic and the 98 Real Estate Group Ling Ding. Reef modules of varying design, each weighing more than 5,000 pounds, were placed in 19 locations, with one to eight structures submerged at each site. The reef modules, all made with steel reinforced concrete and limestone rock, include pyramids, rectangular grouper modules, layer-cake shaped ecosystems and a new hybrid reef that consists of a grouper module topped by a small ecosystem. This is the rst time the hybrid reefs have been deployed in Florida, and MBARA research divers are anxious to nd out what type of marine life will be attracted to them. According to MBARA research diver Carol Cox, Different structures attract different sh. Amberjack and red snappers are attracted to taller structures such as the pyramids, the grouper units act as low limestone ledges that are preferred by groupers, and ecosystems are a magnet for black sea bass. We nd that placing different types of structures together has a dynamic effect, greatly increasing diversity on the reef. We hope the hybrid reef with its height, ledge and crevices will attract the greatest diversity we have seen on any single arti cial reef. During this deployment, MBARA added reefs to six existing sites that have become dif cult to nd over the years. MBARA president, Bob Cox, said, It is important to maintain these reefs in honor of the people they were named after. Older reefs often were made with lighter or smaller materials that could be moved by powerful storms or covered by sand. The deployment was overseen by Bill Horn of the FWC along with MBARA volunteers Bob and Carol Cox, Ron Childs, Jimmy Nicholson, and Captain Charlene Burke. MBARA volunteers were involved in every step of the arti cial reef deployment--applying for permits, writing grants, and raising matching funds to earn points when competing for grants. According to Horn, Excellent planning by MBARA and excellent execution by Walter Marine made the project a great success.

I am hardly an expert on birds but, since I am trying to learn more, I thought Id share my research with the readers of this column. The indigo bunting (Passerina cyanea), is a four to ve-inch long, seed-eating bird in the same family as cardinals. Carrabelles Rod Gasche sent the newspaper photographs he captured of a male indigo bunting and they are lovely. Earlier this month, a large group reportedly passed through the Sugar Hill Campground in Dr. Julian Bruce St. George Island State Park. By the way, according to Whatbird.com, a ock of buntings is called a decoration, mural or sacri ce of buntings. I can certainly understand the rst two names. Female indigo buntings are a mousy brown color, but the males are real show-offs. During spring and summer, when they are trying to attract a mate, the males sport iridescent black plumage. Depending on the angle of the light, they may appear turquoise, black or any shade in between. This is an optical illusion caused by light diffraction. The males are also very vocal and sing long, complex songs, especially during the early morning hours when, according to Cornell Universitys Allaboutbirds.com website, they may produce up to 200 songs per hour. By the way, you can hear some of those songs at both Allaboutbirds and Whatbird. Indigo buntings migrate to South Florida and South and Central America during the winter, but can be found almost anywhere in North America east of the Rocky Mountains during the warm months. These birds often migrate at night, navigating by the stars, and can become confused under overcast conditions. Preferred habitats include brushy slopes, old pastures and elds grown to scrub, woodland clearings, and forest edges adjacent to elds. During migration large ocks may feed in agricultural elds or on lawns. The diet of the indigo bunting consists primarily of insects during the summer and seeds during the winter. They forage in trees, shrubs and on the ground. Researchers at Cornell tell us that you can attract indigo buntings to your yard with feeders containing small seeds such as thistle or live mealworms. They will also readily feed on saf ower, apple, suet, millet and peanuts.

In Port St. Joe Tuesday night, Liberty County pitcher Kayla Johnson twirled a no-hitter against Franklin County, to notch a 6-0 win and advance in District 4, Class 1A ball. No Lady Seahawks batter was able to locate Johnsons pitches during the game as she struck out 11 batters and walked two to preserve her teams spotless district record. She got Franklin County senior Anna Lee to strike out for the nal out of the game. Liberty stayed on top until the nal out after taking the lead in the rst, scoring two runs on a passed ball and a sacri ce y by Johnson. Liberty tacked on another two runs in the fth when Bri Whatley doubled, bringing home Johnson. On Monday night, the Lady Seahawks varsity, under the direction of coach Lisa Sweatt, refused to relinquish the lead after grabbing it early against Bozeman, recording a 9-2 victory. With seven runs in the rst three innings, Franklin County left no doubt about the eventual outcome. An RBI single by senior Chena Segree, a steal of home by junior Ally Millender, and an RBI single by Lee during the rst inning helped the Lady Seahawks put some runs on the board early. Segree reached base three times in the game, and scored two runs and had one RBI. Franklin County tacked on another four runs in the third. A bases loaded walk scored Lee to get the Seahawks on the board in the inning. That was followed up by Ashley Carrolls single, scoring Summer Medley. Franklin County added two more runs in the top of the fourth. Lee kicked things off with a double, plating Chena Segree.

Audience members loved the music and moved and grooved with the band (Alondra Jimenez, KT Nessly, Morgan Malone, Adia Siler, and Madeline Weisz) as they kept the beat to the Wild Rumpus. Not only was everyone treated to the show of a lifetime, but they also all got some fabulous monster snacks monster cupcakes and Rice Krispie treats, grapes that stared at you as you ate their cute little faces, veggies with moustaches, smiley fries, and hot dogs growing noodle hair.
