Local A2 | The Times Thursday, May 23, 2013 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star.com The U.S. Senate passed a bill last week that could be a death warrant for Apalachicola Bay and the local seafood industry. The bill now heads to the House. The Water Resources Develop ment Act (WRDA) has been up dated every two years since 1974. WRDA is the main vehicle for authorizing water projects to be studied, planned and developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (Corps). It is also the legislative vehicle for making policy changes with respect to the Corps’ water resource projects and programs. Although praised by many in dustry leaders, the WRDA for 2013 has been criticized for both its failure to address budgetary shortfalls and its lack of environ mental consciousness. Part of the act is a provision to “streamline” environmental assessments re quired before Corps projects can be implemented. In a press release, Larry Sch weiger, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation said, “Unfortunately, language in this bill undermines the bedrock envi ronmental principle that the feder al government should look before it leaps. Time and time again, com mon-sense environmental reviews have shed light on expensive, dam aging proposals that are not in our national interest.” Florida Senators Mario Rubio (R) and Bill Nelson (D) supported a draft of WRDA from U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., that required Congressional approval for any Corps alteration of 5 percent or more to an existing reservoir plan. This would have made Congress a party to decisions over Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona and many other reservoirs around the country. The draft failed and the lan guage was removed from the draft of WRDA that passed 83-14 on May 18, giving Georgia a clear victory over Florida in the water wars. Both Florida senators voted against the bill. Nelson said the amendment was blocked partly because Geor gia Republican Sen. Johnny Isak son “threatened to tie up Ever glades restoration and every other project in the broader water bill.” Expressing disappointment with the outcome, Rubio said, “Floridians in Apalachicola Bay have known all too well how this dispute has created economic havoc for our once vibrant oyster industry, as well as all the other industries that are so dependent on the harvesting and sale of that great resource. “Despite this setback, I will not give up on restoring ows towards the Apalachicola Bay. I’ve request ed a eld hearing in the Apalachic ola Bay area so that my colleagues in the Senate can better under stand why this issue simply cannot continue to be held hostage to the broken politics of Washington.” Apalachicola Riverkeeper Dan Tonsmeire said his organiza tion has now largely pinned their hopes on District 2 Rep. Steve Southerland. At Tuesday’s county commis sion meeting, Director of Admin istrative Services Alan Pierce pre sented commissioners with copies of a letter written by Southerland and signed by 25 other members of Congress to the chairman of the House Committee on Transporta tion and Infrastructure informing the Committee that these members of Congress believe the US Corps of Engineers has overstepped its authority by re-allocating water from Lake Lanier without proper Congressional oversight. The members are asking the commit tee “to ensure that a legislative solution is included in the Water Resources Development Act.” Pierce said, “The Committee is drafting a new Act and apparently has the authority to include legis lative solutions to the 20 year ACF water war.” Commissioners instructed Pierce to send a letter to South erland and Governor Rick Scott thanking them for their efforts on the county’s behalf. Tonsmeire said the Riverkeep ers “are working with the folks in the Alabama River Basin to help them understand that requiring more water at Florida line will ben et them too.” He said Atlanta’s stranglehold on Apalachicola/Flint/Chatta hoochee river system has a bad effect on industry, agriculture and communities in Alabama and South Georgia because many in dustries and municipalities in those areas use water from the riv er system and then return it. A suf cient mixing zone is needed to re introduce water containing chemi cal contaminates or that has been heated. When the river is low, us ers are sometimes forced to house contaminated water until there is an adequate mixing zone available and that costs money. Maintaining adequate ow benets these users and doesn’t diminish the water ar riving at the Apalachicola Bay. Tonsmeire said the Corps has taken the stand that their only responsibility is to maintain suf cient ow to comply with the En dangered Species Act (5000 cubic feet / second). “This is most important in drought years,” said Tonsmeire. “Last year, the bay crashed due to lack of fresh water which shows that 5,000 cfs is not enough. This year, the ow is nearly normal but in dry years, the Apalachicola River and Bay take the brunt of the punishment so the reservoirs serving Atlanta can stay full. It’s just a matter of time before they literally collapse the bay for good. You can only stress those eco-sys tems so much before they don’t come back.” Water wars victory for Georgia commission that carts be barred from the path. County Attorney Mi chael Shuler said the or dinance is based on the St. George Island golf cart ordinance. He said the county can consider adding streets south of the highway in the fu ture. He said night use is not covered by the local rule, but requirements for the use of carts at night is spelled out in state law. Pierce said he did not believe the Florida Department of Trans portation would approve a golf cart crossing on US 98 pointing out that they refused to do so in Apalachicola. Chairman Cheryl Sanders said the board will consider passing a similar ordinance for other unincorporated areas of the county if re quested by residents. Alan Pfeiffer, presi dent of the Alligator Point Taxpayers As sociation (APTA), said the speed limit on State Route 370 would pre clude golf cart use. He said carts driven by chil dren have become a seri ous problem on Alligator and Bald Points and that golf carts are being driv en at unsafe speeds. He said APTA will discuss a golf cart ordinance at its next meeting. Commissioner Pinki Jackel joked Eastpoint residents were revving their golf cart engines in anticipation of the or dinance allowing use of the carts on the streets. After the meeting, Pierce said the ordi nance will be tweaked as golf cart owners adapt to the change. GOLF CART from page A1 Repairs to Vrooman Park are now complete and the park ofcially opened to the public Monday. Nikki Millender, director of parks and recreation, said total cost for repairs to the park was $27,342, with the county’s parks and rec budget responsible for $5,000 of the cost for the required deductible following the April 14 hail storm that damaged the fence and dugout. An incident in March 2013 required parks and recreation to pay out another $5,000 deductible. LOIS SWOBODA | The Times VR ooOO M aA N P a A RK REP ai AI R sS C oO MP lL ETE

Chisholm has innovated change at library I have been a volunteer at the Carrabelle library since we started out in the old gym locker room at the site. Ive worked with all of the librarians and have one statement to make. Tonia is the most experienced and quali ed person to manage the Carrabelle library. True she may not have the degree, but she is taking courses towards it. She has made many innovated changes in the library that have helped us all in Carrabelle. In my opinion she is the most quali ed librarian. If initials mean that much after your name, here are mine. Donald B. Mac Lean AS, BS, MS Retired Fire Chief Professor of Fire Science at Univ. of Michigan & Jersey City State College A call for unity to grow libraries I am deeply distressed by the division being cultivated by a few well-meaning library patrons who suggest that the future of Franklin Countys libraries has been compromised. That is a false assumption. Franklin County has been blessed with individuals and groups who have contributed tirelessly to fund and expand library facilities and services. The Library Board, chaired by Mrs. Denise Butler, and the Friends of the Franklin County Library, serving as volunteers, are to be commended for their role in providing quality information services to our children, patrons and our tourist community. Our library director, Glenda Ondracek has demonstrated professionalism and wisdom in her role as director of the library system. Her role as a supervisor may not be appreciated by all who are not familiar with the scope of her responsibilities, which include researching, purchasing, budgeting, cataloging, report writing as well as instructing and personnel management. It is time to offer our thanks, not our criticism! We need unity to grow and to continue to offer quality educational resources for all the citizens of Franklin County. Please support our libraries! Respectfully submitted, Marilyn Hogan Supporter of Franklin Co. libraries since 1992 Civil War weekend personally re ective Kudos to the creators and organizers of the notable Civil War Weekend! When I rst heard about the planned occasion, it sounded most interesting; but it also caused me to take a deep breath, thinking of this historic and emotionallycharged subject. I attended many of the events, and wish I could have attended all. It was my intent to make this a personally re ective weekend: what had this all meant in time, what had my many ancestors soldiers, fathers and wives, experienced and felt? The Emancipation Proclamation reading and accompanying drama was rewarding and truly historical for this important city of Apalachicola. And I had hoped to conclude the weekend with the singing of old hymns renewing the old adage of faith, hope and charity. For me, the supposed non-denominational service in Lafayette Park was an extreme disappointment. It was an hour-and-one-half tirade of excess and exception with the few minutes of sermon by Rev. Themo P. proving that he could have delivered a far better, unifying program. Irritated and frustrated, I hurried home before its closure. I was intent on changing my mood and in ending well what otherwise had been a rewarding weekend. As if the spirit of ancestors were speaking, I pulled from my shelf the account of my greatgrandfather, Capt. James Robert McMichael, who as part of the Company K, 12th Georgia Regiment, had been one of the 600 Immortals, i.e. one of the 600 Confederate of cers who had been set up as a human buffer in Charleston Harbor in retaliation for Andersonville. McMichael later became a doctor and a devoted community member of Buena Vista, Georgia. Just 30 years old when the war ended, on Christmas Day just a few months before Lees surrender to Grant, McMichael wrote and I was soothed, by the following: O who in such a place as this Could bear his lot of pain, Did not one radiant hope of bliss Unclouded yet remain? That hope the sovereign Lord has given Who reigns above the skies Hope that unites the soul to heaven By faiths endearing ties. And every pang that wrings the breast And every joy that dies Tell us to seek a purer rest And trust to holier ties. H. Melicent Remy By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@starfl.co m Franklin County saw another drop in its unemployment rate for April, as it declined to the 5.0 percent level, fth lowest in the state. According to preliminary numbers released Friday by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the countys jobless rate in April dropped four-tenths of 1 percent, from 5.4 percent. Thirteen people moved off unemployment rolls, shrinking them from 285 to 272 people in search of work. The drop in joblessness occurred even as the workforce grew by 87 workers, from 5,367 to 5,454, which is larger than one year ago, when it comprised 5,292 workers, and when the jobless rate was sharply higher, at 6.5 percent. Franklin Countys jobless picture placed it just a few notches behind Monroe County, at 3.7 percent, Walton (4.1 percent), Okaloosa (4.6 percent), and Alachua (4.8 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. Franklin had the lowest unemployment rate in the tri-county Gulf Coast Workforce region, which had a combined rate of 6.2 percent in April. This rate was down 1.5 percentage points below April 2013. Bay Countys jobless rate dropped from 6.6 to 6.2 percent, while Gulf Countys declined from 7.1 to 6.5 percent. Out of a labor force of 100,652, there were 6,215 unemployed Gulf Coast residents. Unemployment usually dips during the spring in our region because our local tourism industry is in full swing. We will probably see that start to rise again July through September as the tourism season winds down, said Kim Bodine, executive director for Gulf Coast Workforce Board. Just as last month, our metro area has not seen unemployment numbers this low since Oct. 2008, yet we still have room for improvement. The metro areas 2008 low was in April, at a rate of 4.0 percent, which is 2.2 percentage points lower than this months number of 6.2. Page 4 Thursday, May 23, 2013 Special to the Times This session was a very active and productive session for State Senator Bill Montford and his voice was heard, strong and clear, advocating for North Floridas hardworking citizens. Montfords actions can only af rm that he understands our needs and works tirelessly to nd principled, common sense solutions to those needs. This session he demonstrated his knowledge of and support for issues important to all of us, by participating in the following Florida Legislation: Improvements to Education: I truly believe our future is in our childrens hands, and it is this that drives my passion to give them the best opportunities. His passion for education led the senator to support improvements to Floridas educational system including providing more college and career-ready opportunities, ensuring low performing students needs are met and instituting more local control by reducing unnecessary regulations. He sponsored a very successful deregulation bill that removed unnecessary and duplicative regulation and rules. State Employee Pay Raise: Recognizing Floridas public employees, the legislature mandated that state employees, school teachers and school district employees be given a welldeserved pay raise. These are honest people putting in a hard days work, and they deserve to be rewarded with livable pay. A pay increase is long overdue and its high time we acknowledge how hard our state employees work Montford said in regards the pay raise. Preservation of the Apalachicola River Basin and Bay: Montford supported Governor Rick Scotts funding of $3 million towards Water Quality Improvement projects in the Apalachicola Bay and Apalachicola River Basin. The allocation of $400,000 to the protection, restoration and research of natural oyster reefs and beds came as a result of his leadership during the 2013 Legislative Session and budgetary process. Public Work Squads: To ensure the continuation of the public work squads from our prisons a line item of $34 million was added to the budget. This will result in a tremendous savings for the tax payer. FRS Retirement System: After numerous threats to change the retirement system, senators stood up for the hard working people of Florida and left the retirement system intact. North Florida has something unique and special and it must be recognized and protected. Listed below are some of local projects that were funded in the 2013-14 that will bene t Franklin County: Technology Transformation Grant to establish/enhance wireless network for Franklin School District $52,592 Restoration of the Oyster Planting Program $350,000 FDACS Oyster Protection and Restoration Program (Vessel registration fees) $400,000 Apalachicola-Wet Weather Storage Pond $957,000 Historic Apalachicola Main Street Project $10,000 Dixie Theatre Foundation, Inc. $2,800 Weems Memorial Arts in Medicine program $25,000 Apalachicola School of Art expansion funding $20,000 Lake Morality Rd from County Road 67 to State Route 30 (US98/319) Signing/ Pavement Markings $114,000 Apalachicola Regional Airport Lighting Upgrades/ Operational $193,329 Apalachicola Regional Airport Rehab Runway $40,000 Oak Street from Arizona Street to DOE Lane Rd Reconstruction-2 Lane $1.1 million Bayshore Drive from SR 300 Island Drive to SR 30 (US 98) Resurface Exit Lanes $1.6 million CR 67 Tallahassee Street from Avenue A to Crooked Creek Road sidewalk $44,285 Carrabelle-Thompson Airport Construct T-Hangers Aviation Revenue $250,000 By Rob Olin and Janet Olin Special to the Times My mother, Jeanne B. Olin was an earthbound angel, before she left us the morning of April 19, after complications with pneumonia. It was a cold and rainy morning, lled with tears and sadness, but the peace that lled the air around her was like an umbrella of light, love and renewal. My sister and I credit this to one wonderful angel that came to us the night before: Anna Hogan. Mom was in great pain, struggling desperately for breath, unable to communicate, eat or drink. Our worst nightmare was taking place in front of our eyes and we felt helpless and unable to bring her any relief or comfort, until Anna Hogan arrived. She walked into Moms curtained-off room, smiling gently through the rain still glistening on her face. Calmly and succinctly, she reviewed Moms situation, symptoms and nal requests, making it a point to learn the essence of our relationship together. Janet, my sister, told her of Moms secret desire not to die in front of her children. After hearing all she needed, Anna stood and softly explained what was happening, what we should expect and what needed to be done for Moms comfort and our own. Your mother has been a proud woman all her life in her appearance, the way she lived and how she raised you. It is bothering her to be untidy to be losing control and she doesnt want the image of her death to be the last image you have of her. Lets give her the dignity she deserves, as the living, loving and beautiful human being she is while she is still here with us. With that, Anna directed me out of the room, while she and Janet freshened Mom up every way they could. Instantly you could see the difference it made to Mom and us. Moms breathing calmed down, her fever lowered; the pain seemed to have eased. Peace was returning to the room. Then Anna explained that Moms vitals were waning and how all systems were shutting down, one-by-one. Reverently she said, Jeanne is now dying. She may hold on for two more hours or two more days. It is hard to tell. But I am fairly certain your Mom will not pass in your presence. So for her sake and your own, you should prepare your nal good byes to her now, just in case. We all prayed together, cried together and said our good byes together, before hugging and driving off separately into the night. Hours later, just before dawn, while Janet and I were driving back, Mom peacefully passed away the way she wanted quietly in the presence of her friends at CenterPoint. Anna was right. She knew Moms heart and ours. Like an enlightened spiritual guide, she led us through this foreign journey of death and dying, much like an experienced caddie at a golf course youve never played before and only get one chance to get it right. We werent afraid of the situation; we just didnt want to make any mistakes that could be avoided for Moms sake her comfort her last chapter. So today, from our family, to Anna Hogan and her family in Quincy: Thank you Anna for being our Angel and our Moms. Anna Hogan is a veteran nurse and hospice attendant at Big Bend Hospice in Tallahassee. Jean Olin lived in Quincy. Rob Olin and Janet Olin live at St. George Island.

Wearing a seatbelt is the most effective way to help prevent injuries in the event of a trafc crash. Unfortunately, many motor ists do not use this impor tant safety feature. Beginning today, Florida Highway Patrol Troopers will be taking part in the 2013 National Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement cam paign. Motorists who are not buckled up run the risk of being ticketed. This includes any passengers who may be riding in the car. The Patrol is committed to making the roadways saf er through the use of educa tion and enforcement cam paigns such as Click it or Ticket, said Col. David Bri erton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. Seat belts have saved thousands of lives and are one of the most effective safety tools in your vehicle. Buckle up Florida, it is the law. Since 2009, Floridas primary safety belt law re quires drivers and passen gers to fasten their safety belts and has saved count less lives. Three things to remember when it comes to seatbelts: Buckle up every time you get in your vehicle. Make sure your pas sengers are also buckled. If you already wear your safety belt, keep it up. As an incentive to in crease awareness of the importance of wearing a seat belt to future drivers, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is inviting Florida middle school students to submit suggestions for a new seat belt poster and calendar for 2014. The contest will en courage students to submit ideas that will motivate oth ers to buckle up. For more information, go to www. hsmv.gov and click on Seat Belt Poster Contest. Remember that you can dial *FHP (*347) from your cellphone to report an ag gressive or impaired driv er or to request roadside assistance. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, edu cation and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efcient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and opera tion of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com OUTDOORS www.apalachtimes.com Section Section A Special to the Times This ve-pound tripletail was caught by Terri Hall of Monroe, Ga., seen here with Captain Ken Finch. Tripletail are found in tropical and temperate coastal waters around the world. The scienti c name is Lobotes surinamensis, but they have many names worldwide including black grunt, black perch, bouy sh, conchy leaf, asher and sleep sh. They are the only species in the family Lobotidae and, contrary to popular belief, are not related to grouper or any other species found along the Gulf Coast. The tripletail can grow to 35 inches in length and a weight of 41 pounds. The average weight is between 2 and 16 pounds. The most characteristic and certainly one of the most unusual behaviors exhibited by these sh is the propensity to lie just below the surface, oating with one side exposed, looking for all intents dead, hence the name sleep sh. This activity may be related to temperature regulation or it may be a hunting strategy. The principal food of the triple tail is small sh, shrimp and crabs. Young tripletail are most often collected offshore in water depths of under 210 feet. In the Gulf of Mexico, tripletail migrate to the nearshore Gulf and estuaries April October possibly due to rising water temperatures. Tripletail are most often seen and caught near structure and oating objects.

Around town and down the coast, inshore fishing is at its peak for the season right now. Great trout and red fish catches are being reported daily in St. Joe and Apalachicola Bays right now.

Watch for birds and follow the plentiful bait on the surface to get in on the action! First tripletail of the season By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Despite anglers efforts to persuade federal shery managers to rescind a set of rules affecting this years red snapper season, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Service announced last week it denied both requests. Following a meeting in late April, the Gulf of Mexico Fisheries Management Council asked NOAA to rescind an action that gives NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Administrator Roy Crabtree the power to close snapper season in federal waters in states, such as Florida, with seasons that do not comply with federal regulations. The council also requested the annulment of Amendment 30B, which requires for-hire boats that hold federal reef sh permits to always comply with federal regulations regardless of state rules. Pam Anderson, operations manager at Capt. Andersons Marina in Panama City Beach, said the rules in question were established with politics in mind as a way to dissuade the states from allowing longer seasons in their territorial waters. Floridas longer 44-day season resulted in a shorter 21-day season in federal waters this year. However, Anderson said many for-hire captains still were in support of the longer state season despite the repercussions. We think it sends a message to NOAA that theyre doing it wrong, she said. We should be growing the shery to meet the demand of the shing public instead of restricting access to the shery; its a public resource. Anderson addressed the Bay County Tourist Development Council on Tuesday morning, requesting it send a letter to NOAA in support of the Gulf Councils request to rescind the pair of rules. Although NOAA denied the Gulf Councils requests just hours after the TDC pledged its support, Anderson said local anglers still are urging the community to reach out to lawmakers. Were asking folks to write anyway to their legislators and state leaders to request that we have the privilege of shing in state waters like the other citizens in the state do, Anderson said. Folks need to know about this so they can help us react to these excessively restrictive rules. Capt. Andersons Marina is home to 25 private charter boats, 20 of which hold federal shing licenses and must comply with federal regulations regardless of the longer state season. Since 2007, the number of forhire boats that hold federal permits in the Gulf has been reduced from 1,650 to 1,250, and NOAA intends to reduce the number to 1,000, Anderson said. Additionally, the commercial eet has dropped from about 800 to 400 boats in the past 10 years. Anglers also are awaiting results of a red snapper benchmark assessment, which will come out at the end of this month and provide a look at the snapper stock in the Gulf of Mexico. That is really important to us because it shows the growth of the shery, said Anderson, who noted the shery is expected to show growth to between 12 million and 15 million pounds. Thats huge because right now we only have access to 8 million pounds. NOAA denies request for rules change Anglers take hit on snapper season FILE PHOTO | Halifax Media Group Red snapper is unloaded at Tarpon Dock Seafood.

Local The Times | A9 Thursday, May 23, 2013 including strategies for preserving old buildings, cemetery resource protec tion and sea level rise im pacts on historic resourc es. Webb even sat in on St. Augustine’s Historic Ar chitectural Review Board meeting and met with city planners to discuss the two town’s planning proce dures and administration. Throughout the confer ence, Webb said she was impressed with the level of attention that Apalachicola received at the conference. “We are going to see an increase in hands-on technical assistance in the city from the State Historic Preservation Ofce and Florida Public Archaeologi cal Network,” Webb said. Apalachicola Historical Society president Tom Daly, a longtime advocate of the Chapman restoration proj ect, was unable to attend the St. Augustine event but was credited for his efforts in lobbying for the designa tion. “Tom has been a tire less supporter of the Chap man restoration effort and his efforts and communica tion with the Florida Trust were key in securing this nomination,” Webb said. According to Daly, the Chapman announcement represents a big step for ward towards restoration. “As a city of ever-in creasing heritage tourism, I’m happy that the Florida Trust recognizes the histor ical and cultural importance of the Chapman Building,” Daly said. “This, combined with the interest of Uni versity of Florida (UF) will help us focus on the notable architecture of the area and the value of preservation,” I hope all our citizens realize the value of our history and how that will provide even greater economic opportu nities for the future.” Daly and Webb also cred it Tallahassee Architect and Florida Trust Board Mem ber Mark Tarmey’s role in securing the Apalachicola nomination. Tarmey is the past president and current treasurer of the Florida Trust for Historic Preser vation and his design rm, 4M Design Group is the architectural rm credited with the design of the City’s Scipio Creek Project and other past public design projects in the city. Tarmey also served as one of three consultants to the city for review of projects coming before the Planning and Zoning Board. As such, Tarmey is familiar with Apalachicola’s historic resources. “The Chapman School is the nest example of art deco architecture in North Florida and has been rec ognized as such by UF and the Florida Trust,” Tarmey said. “Hopefully this des ignation will lead to higher involvement from both UF and the Trust. The nomina tion is intended to draw at tention to the most signi cant strictures in the state that require preservation funding and rehabilitation. Apalachicola has recently garnered the attention of the Secretary of State and the State Division of His toric Resources and this will aid in future preservation funding initiatives.” Some of that Trust in volvement, will begin later this summer. Apalachicola will host the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation during its annual Board Retreat Aug. 2. The Apala chicola Area Historical So ciety, along with the city and other community groups will introduce the Trust to the city’s historic sites, ac tivities and amenities. “To have the trust for historic preservation here in Apalachicola is a real opportunity to show off our unique and iconic struc tures. This is our time to shine for the Trust and show them how many posi tive historic restoration projects have occurred in the town,” said Daly. The Chapman School designation falls on the heels of a May 10 presen tation by UF researchers that released the ndings of a three month study of the building. Two Univer sity of Florida Preservation experts are currently prob ing the condition of Chap man School and its vital role in the community. The UF study is a collabora tive effort involving many community partners and individuals including Helen Tudor, owner of the Chap man House Museum, Leon Bloodworth, the Apala chicola Bay Charter School, Apalachicola Historical Society, Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce and local city and county gov ernment representatives. An ongoing community survey seeking public input about the building is avail able at the Apalachicola Bay Chamber. The Florida Trust for Historic Preservation is a non-prot organization with more than 1600 members, and is the statewide part ner to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The mission of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation is to promote the preservation of Florida’s unique cultural, historical and architectural resources This is the 12th year of the Most Endan gered Program. Other Flor ida endangered sites added to the 2013 list include the Munroe House and Lewis Spring House in Tallahas see, William Camp House in Ocala and the Miami Women’s Club. Entire city blocks even made the list this year, including down town Palatka, the Orange City Historic District and Milton Historic District.

FD A CS -15118 R ev 02/11 2092216 THE BUILDING’S HIS tT ORY Work on the Chapman Auditorium Building was commenced in 1931. The cast stone structure was designed by E. R. James to contain eight classrooms and an auditorium. A. D. Lawson from Port St. Joe was the contractor for the new building and also for the renovation of the existing building at Chapman High School. The initial contract called for the completion of the building within 250 days, but construction did not progress as rapidly as anticipated. The school board took over direct supervision of the work in 1932 with George Marshall placed in charge of construction. Eventually the Depression-era Civil Works Administration took over construction of the building. When the Civil Works Administration was phased out, the Federal Emergency Relief Administration took over the project and nally completed it in 1934. The Chapman High School class of 1934 was the rst to graduate from the Chapman Auditorium. This building housed the high school classes at the Chapman School. When the Apalachicola High School was constructed on 14th Street in the 1970s the classrooms were renovated into ofces for the Franklin County School Board. The school board deeded the property to Franklin County in 2009. The building is the nest example of Art Deco architecture in Franklin County. It is adorned with cast stone details of crabs, owls and pelicans. Above the auditorium stage is an intricate scene in cast stone which includes a depiction of the Chapman Auditorium. CHAPMAN from page A1 CHAPMAN AA UDI tT ORIUM away, or 8 hours by automobile, from the Franklin County Courthouse,” retained the services of JMT Management Corporation, a foreclosure sales atten dance rm, to bid on the property on the bank’s behalf. Johnson said JMT had bid at judicial sales around the state on the bank’s behalf, and that “without ex ception, in all other cases, JMT Management suc cessfully performed and completed its services.” In this case, however, something went wrong, at least as far as the bank was concerned, with one of the city’s most famous residences and one worth consid erably more than was paid by the bidder. Built in 1894 out of heart pine and black cypress by August Mohr, superintendent of the Cypress Lumber company, the Queen Anne Style home was the work of George and John Marshall. In the late 1930s, it be came the home of Margaret and Alexander Key, a wellknown author and illustrator whose novels include “Is land Light,” “The Wrath and the Wind,” and “Night on Witch Mountain,” later made into a Disney movie. The couple divorced in the 1940s, and Margaret, also an author, supported herself for more than half a century by working as a newspaper reporter, and writ ing magazine articles. Both she and her sister, Bess, lived in the house until they were well into their 90s. Margaret died in 1996 and directed in her will that upon the sale of her estate, proceeds be given to the Apalachicola Municipal Library board, of which she was a long time member. About $350,000 plus inter est resulted from the bequest, after the home was ac quired in 1998 by Naples physician Dr. Gregory and Sally Leach. The couple resumed restoration work dating back to the 1920s, when the home was named Villa Rosa by owner Anna Riscilli. A small cigar factory was oper ated in an out-building during those years. By November 2012, however, the home had fallen into foreclosure, complicated by the bankruptcy of one of the home’s several owner entities, which in cluded Apalach Classic Systems Inc., Gregory Leach, Sally Leach, Advanced Medical Center LLC and Logi cal Investments. The original foreclosure sale, set for Nov. 14, 2012, was postponed until May 2013, and then set for 11 a.m. May 16. In a May 8 packet from a legal assistant to Johnson to a senior sales coordinator at JMT, the bank provided all the documentation needed to go ahead with the foreclosure sale, including the proof of newspaper publication and a $70 check to the county required before a sale can be held. They noted in the cover letter that the nal bid amount was $832,344. “The clerk property conducted the judicial sale, ac cording to the judge’s order and state law,” County At torney Michael Shuler said. “They did everything ap propriately; all the things that should have been done were properly done.” The plaintiffs are not alleging any wrongdoing by Clerk of Court Marcia Johnson’s ofce, but are con tending that JMT’s representative assigned to the sale, Deborah Faircloth, “had forgotten about the as signment and did not appear for plaintiff at the sale.” Because of this, the bank’s lawyers argue, the nal sale price on the property “is only 0.001% of both the val ue of the Property and the Final Judgment amount.” The lawyers, in citing a 1966 Florida Supreme Court summary of 75 years of case law, note the general rule that “mere inadequacy of price is not a ground for set ting aside a judicial sale.” But, as noted in the same ruling, “where the inad equacy is gross and is shown to result from any mis take, accident, surprise, fraud, misconduct or irregu larity upon the part of either the purchaser or other person connected with the sale, with resulting injus tice to the complaining party, equity will act to prevent the wrong result.” The bank’s attorneys contend their client “is clear ly the innocent victim of JMT Management’s mis take,” and cite a 1986 case where a calendaring error resulted in an “unconscionably inadequate price.” Circuit Judge Angela Dempsey likely will have to decide whether or not to set aside and reschedule the sale, unless the matter plays out past her likely reas signment fulltime to Leon County in July. Meanwhile, Michelle Maxwell, the assistant clerk of courts who handled the sale, won’t be certifying the sale in the usual 10 days, that action stymied by the pending motion. If Ethridge eventually obtains the house, he will have to pay about $34,404 in back taxes, on three sepa rate parcels, said Tax Collector Jimmy Harris. KEY HOUSE from page A1

Local A10 | The Times Thursday, May 23, 2013 museum founder, George Kirvin Floyd, to make the event happen. “This is the rst year we did it, and it’s the largest and most ambitious event we’ve done.” One unforgettable high light of the weekend was the reading of the Eman cipation Proclamation at Riverfront Park by Apala chicola Mayor Van John son, anked by two young Apalachicola black men, shirtless, and shackled in chains, with the Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church Choir behind him in robes. “We wanted to make every effort was made to tell the story of northsouth, military-civilian, black-white, and not leave anybody out,” West said. “There are elements of history that have been ne glected, here in Apalachic ola. This is something we’ll expand on, to talk about black history. We know the Apalachicola River was a pathway to freedom for es caping slaves. They knew if they reached the blockade, the Union employed black pilots.” Early Saturday, repre sentatives of the federal Navy arrived at the same park, portrayed by mem bers of the Panhandle Play ers, to order the port closed. Jeff Ilardi spoke on behalf of Apalachicola’s then mayor, and nailed Lincoln’s proclamation up for public viewing. “They actually based their dialogue on historical accounts of what happened to announce a proclama tion,” West said. On Saturday night, mem bers of the Panhandle Play ers put on a dramatized ad aptation of Alexander Key’s “Island Light” on the stage at the St. George Island Lighthouse. With Hank Ko zlowsky as narrator, backed by at times comic, at times sentimental cast, the show attracted a packed outdoor house, and was well-re ceived by the enthusiastic audience. The numbers for the weekend were not over whelming, but were steady, with the quality of the pre sentations eclipsing any similar event in recent memory. West estimated more than 300 people attended the eight lectures held dur ing the weekend, both at the museum and the Center for History, Culture, and Art, with 459 visitors to the mu seum during the weekend. About 350 people visited the re-enactors’ encampment at Battery Park. “We planned to keep it small, tried to keep it small, for something we could build on in coming years,” she said. “It met and ex ceeded all our expectations in terms of attendance, enthusiasm, and the qual ity of all the lectures and events.” The keynote lecture Fri day evening at the museum drew a standing room only audience to hear a keynote speech by Ken Johnston, director of the National Civil War Naval Museum in Columbus, Ga. Johnston delivered a stirring blend of historic fact with inspira tion on the meaning of liv ing history. The weekend marked the opening of a new Civil War exhibit at the museum, in large part due to the ef forts of Mark Parsley, a longtime lover of Civil War history, born and raised in Richmond, Va., who has spent decades research ing and collecting artifacts from Civil War sites. Parsley helped select items the museum pur chased for the exhibit, which is further enhanced by materials collected by Apalachicola librarian Caty Green for inclusion. “When I was standing in the Confederate museum in downtown Richmond, I wanted to build something that had that type of air, that same type of quality,” he said. The Union encampment at Battery Park included members of the USS Fort Henry Living History Unit. Also taking part in differ ent events were the crew of the USS Water Witch (afli ated with the National Civil War Naval Museum), and the USS Pawnee Marine Guard. Members of the United Daughters of the Confed eracy, in period dress, from Crawfordville, Blountstown and Panama City, re-enact ed the sewing of the regi mental ag from Apalachic ola as well as clothing and bandages for soldiers at the Raney and Orman House Museums. Speakers on Saturday at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture, and Art included Dr. Jon Sheppard, who holds a doctorate in history from Florida State, on the “Defense of Flori da, 1861-1862,” and Sean Klimek, an Air Force ofcer studying for her FSU doc torate speaking on “Moni tor v. Merrimac.” David Gregory, a retired curator of education at the Museum of Florida His tory in Tallahassee, spoke on “Skulkers and Desert ers of the Gulf Coast;” Dr. Maurice Melton, a history professor at Albany State, spoke on slave Moses Dal las, who worked as a mari time pilot for the Confeder ate Navy; and Dr. Ed Wiser, an adjunct professor at the Naval War College, who talked about “James Tomb, Confederate Torpedo Boat Skipper.” The nal lecture was given by Mark Curen ton, a past president of the Apalachicola Area Histori cal Society, who traced the history and signicance of the First Florida Federal Cavalry. Robyn Rennick told sto ries about the “The Cape San Blas Salt Works Raid” at the Orman House, among several reenactors and liv ing history people who of fered events throughout town. “Our primary goal was to forge partnerships and relationships between all the various organizations to work together to shine a spotlight of all the opportu nities that exist here for his torical and educational and appreciation,” said West. She said they plan to do the weekend again next year, although are not sure at what time of the year. This depends in large part on the availability of reen actor groups, who often have to weigh compet ing events. Also, the Main Street group, which played a big part in this event, had just nished a busy plein air event, West said. “We got a lot of positive feedback that was very en couraging,” she said.

LocalA2 | The Times Thursday, May 23, 2013By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star.com The U.S. Senate passed a bill last week that could be a death warrant for Apalachicola Bay and the local seafood industry. The bill now heads to the House. The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) has been updated every two years since 1974. WRDA is the main vehicle for authorizing water projects to be studied, planned and developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (Corps). It is also the legislative vehicle for making policy changes with respect to the Corps water resource projects and programs. Although praised by many industry leaders, the WRDA for 2013 has been criticized for both its failure to address budgetary shortfalls and its lack of environmental consciousness. Part of the act is a provision to streamline environmental assessments required before Corps projects can be implemented. In a press release, Larry Schweiger, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation said, Unfortunately, language in this bill undermines the bedrock environmental principle that the federal government should look before it leaps. Time and time again, common-sense environmental reviews have shed light on expensive, damaging proposals that are not in our national interest. Florida Senators Mario Rubio (R) and Bill Nelson (D) supported a draft of WRDA from U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., that required Congressional approval for any Corps alteration of 5 percent or more to an existing reservoir plan. This would have made Congress a party to decisions over Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona and many other reservoirs around the country. The draft failed and the language was removed from the draft of WRDA that passed 83-14 on May 18, giving Georgia a clear victory over Florida in the water wars. Both Florida senators voted against the bill. Nelson said the amendment was blocked partly because Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson threatened to tie up Everglades restoration and every other project in the broader water bill. Expressing disappointment with the outcome, Rubio said, Floridians in Apalachicola Bay have known all too well how this dispute has created economic havoc for our once vibrant oyster industry, as well as all the other industries that are so dependent on the harvesting and sale of that great resource. Despite this setback, I will not give up on restoring ows towards the Apalachicola Bay. Ive requested a eld hearing in the Apalachicola Bay area so that my colleagues in the Senate can better understand why this issue simply cannot continue to be held hostage to the broken politics of Washington. Apalachicola Riverkeeper Dan Tonsmeire said his organization has now largely pinned their hopes on District 2 Rep. Steve Southerland. At Tuesdays county commission meeting, Director of Administrative Services Alan Pierce presented commissioners with copies of a letter written by Southerland and signed by 25 other members of Congress to the chairman of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure informing the Committee that these members of Congress believe the US Corps of Engineers has overstepped its authority by re-allocating water from Lake Lanier without proper Congressional oversight. The members are asking the committee to ensure that a legislative solution is included in the Water Resources Development Act. Pierce said, The Committee is drafting a new Act and apparently has the authority to include legislative solutions to the 20 year ACF water war. Commissioners instructed Pierce to send a letter to Southerland and Governor Rick Scott thanking them for their efforts on the countys behalf. Tonsmeire said the Riverkeepers are working with the folks in the Alabama River Basin to help them understand that requiring more water at Florida line will benet them too. He said Atlantas stranglehold on Apalachicola/Flint/Chattahoochee river system has a bad effect on industry, agriculture and communities in Alabama and South Georgia because many industries and municipalities in those areas use water from the river system and then return it. A sufcient mixing zone is needed to reintroduce water containing chemical contaminates or that has been heated. When the river is low, users are sometimes forced to house contaminated water until there is an adequate mixing zone available and that costs money. Maintaining adequate ow benets these users and doesnt diminish the water arriving at the Apalachicola Bay. Tonsmeire said the Corps has taken the stand that their only responsibility is to maintain sufcient ow to comply with the Endangered Species Act (5000 cubic feet / second). This is most important in drought years, said Tonsmeire. Last year, the bay crashed due to lack of fresh water which shows that 5,000 cfs is not enough. This year, the ow is nearly normal but in dry years, the Apalachicola River and Bay take the brunt of the punishment so the reservoirs serving Atlanta can stay full. Its just a matter of time before they literally collapse the bay for good. You can only stress those eco-systems so much before they dont come back. Water wars victory for Georgia commission that carts be barred from the path. County Attorney Michael Shuler said the ordinance is based on the St. George Island golf cart ordinance. He said the county can consider adding streets south of the highway in the future. He said night use is not covered by the local rule, but requirements for the use of carts at night is spelled out in state law. Pierce said he did not believe the Florida Department of Transportation would approve a golf cart crossing on US 98 pointing out that they refused to do so in Apalachicola. Chairman Cheryl Sanders said the board will consider passing a similar ordinance for other unincorporated areas of the county if requested by residents. Alan Pfeiffer, president of the Alligator Point Taxpayers Association (APTA), said the speed limit on State Route 370 would preclude golf cart use. He said carts driven by children have become a serious problem on Alligator and Bald Points and that golf carts are being driven at unsafe speeds. He said APTA will discuss a golf cart ordinance at its next meeting. Commissioner Pinki Jackel joked Eastpoint residents were revving their golf cart engines in anticipation of the ordinance allowing use of the carts on the streets. After the meeting, Pierce said the ordinance will be tweaked as golf cart owners adapt to the change. GOLF CART from page A1 Repairs to Vrooman Park are now complete and the park ofcially opened to the public Monday. Nikki Millender, director of parks and recreation, said total cost for repairs to the park was $27,342, with the countys parks and rec budget responsible for $5,000 of the cost for the required deductible following the April 14 hail storm that damaged the fence and dugout. An incident in March 2013 required parks and recreation to pay out another $5,000 deductible.LOIS SWOBODA | The Times VRooOOMaAN Pa ARK REPai AI RsS CoOMPlLETE

Chisholm has innovated change at libraryI have been a volunteer at the Carrabelle library since we started out in the old gym locker room at the site. Ive worked with all of the librarians and have one statement to make. Tonia is the most experienced and quali ed person to manage the Carrabelle library. True she may not have the degree, but she is taking courses towards it. She has made many innovated changes in the library that have helped us all in Carrabelle. In my opinion she is the most quali ed librarian. If initials mean that much after your name, here are mine. Donald B. Mac Lean AS, BS, MSRetired Fire Chief Professor of Fire Science at Univ. of Michigan & Jersey City State CollegeA call for unity to grow librariesI am deeply distressed by the division being cultivated by a few well-meaning library patrons who suggest that the future of Franklin Countys libraries has been compromised. That is a false assumption. Franklin County has been blessed with individuals and groups who have contributed tirelessly to fund and expand library facilities and services. The Library Board, chaired by Mrs. Denise Butler, and the Friends of the Franklin County Library, serving as volunteers, are to be commended for their role in providing quality information services to our children, patrons and our tourist community. Our library director, Glenda Ondracek has demonstrated professionalism and wisdom in her role as director of the library system. Her role as a supervisor may not be appreciated by all who are not familiar with the scope of her responsibilities, which include researching, purchasing, budgeting, cataloging, report writing as well as instructing and personnel management. It is time to offer our thanks, not our criticism! We need unity to grow and to continue to offer quality educational resources for all the citizens of Franklin County. Please support our libraries! Respectfully submitted,Marilyn HoganSupporter of Franklin Co. libraries since 1992Civil War weekend personally re ectiveKudos to the creators and organizers of the notable Civil War Weekend! When I rst heard about the planned occasion, it sounded most interesting; but it also caused me to take a deep breath, thinking of this historic and emotionallycharged subject. I attended many of the events, and wish I could have attended all. It was my intent to make this a personally re ective weekend: what had this all meant in time, what had my many ancestors soldiers, fathers and wives, experienced and felt? The Emancipation Proclamation reading and accompanying drama was rewarding and truly historical for this important city of Apalachicola. And I had hoped to conclude the weekend with the singing of old hymns renewing the old adage of faith, hope and charity. For me, the supposed non-denominational service in Lafayette Park was an extreme disappointment. It was an hour-and-one-half tirade of excess and exception with the few minutes of sermon by Rev. Themo P. proving that he could have delivered a far better, unifying program. Irritated and frustrated, I hurried home before its closure. I was intent on changing my mood and in ending well what otherwise had been a rewarding weekend. As if the spirit of ancestors were speaking, I pulled from my shelf the account of my greatgrandfather, Capt. James Robert McMichael, who as part of the Company K, 12th Georgia Regiment, had been one of the 600 Immortals, i.e. one of the 600 Confederate of cers who had been set up as a human buffer in Charleston Harbor in retaliation for Andersonville. McMichael later became a doctor and a devoted community member of Buena Vista, Georgia. Just 30 years old when the war ended, on Christmas Day just a few months before Lees surrender to Grant, McMichael wrote and I was soothed, by the following: O who in such a place as this Could bear his lot of pain, Did not one radiant hope of bliss Unclouded yet remain? That hope the sovereign Lord has given Who reigns above the skies Hope that unites the soul to heaven By faiths endearing ties. And every pang that wrings the breast And every joy that dies Tell us to seek a purer rest And trust to holier ties.H. Melicent Remy By DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimesDadlerstein@starfl.comFranklin County saw another drop in its unemployment rate for April, as it declined to the 5.0 percent level, fth lowest in the state. According to preliminary numbers released Friday by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the countys jobless rate in April dropped four-tenths of 1 percent, from 5.4 percent. Thirteen people moved off unemployment rolls, shrinking them from 285 to 272 people in search of work. The drop in joblessness occurred even as the workforce grew by 87 workers, from 5,367 to 5,454, which is larger than one year ago, when it comprised 5,292 workers, and when the jobless rate was sharply higher, at 6.5 percent. Franklin Countys jobless picture placed it just a few notches behind Monroe County, at 3.7 percent, Walton (4.1 percent), Okaloosa (4.6 percent), and Alachua (4.8 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. Franklin had the lowest unemployment rate in the tri-county Gulf Coast Workforce region, which had a combined rate of 6.2 percent in April. This rate was down 1.5 percentage points below April 2013. Bay Countys jobless rate dropped from 6.6 to 6.2 percent, while Gulf Countys declined from 7.1 to 6.5 percent. Out of a labor force of 100,652, there were 6,215 unemployed Gulf Coast residents. Unemployment usually dips during the spring in our region because our local tourism industry is in full swing. We will probably see that start to rise again July through September as the tourism season winds down, said Kim Bodine, executive director for Gulf Coast Workforce Board. Just as last month, our metro area has not seen unemployment numbers this low since Oct. 2008, yet we still have room for improvement. The metro areas 2008 low was in April, at a rate of 4.0 percent, which is 2.2 percentage points lower than this months number of 6.2. Page 4 Thursday, May 23, 2013Special to the TimesThis session was a very active and productive session for State Senator Bill Montford and his voice was heard, strong and clear, advocating for North Floridas hardworking citizens. Montfords actions can only af rm that he understands our needs and works tirelessly to nd principled, common sense solutions to those needs. This session he demonstrated his knowledge of and support for issues important to all of us, by participating in the following Florida Legislation: Improvements to Education: I truly believe our future is in our childrens hands, and it is this that drives my passion to give them the best opportunities. His passion for education led the senator to support improvements to Floridas educational system including providing more college and career-ready opportunities, ensuring low performing students needs are met and instituting more local control by reducing unnecessary regulations. He sponsored a very successful deregulation bill that removed unnecessary and duplicative regulation and rules. State Employee Pay Raise: Recognizing Floridas public employees, the legislature mandated that state employees, school teachers and school district employees be given a welldeserved pay raise. These are honest people putting in a hard days work, and they deserve to be rewarded with livable pay. A pay increase is long overdue and its high time we acknowledge how hard our state employees work Montford said in regards the pay raise. Preservation of the Apalachicola River Basin and Bay: Montford supported Governor Rick Scotts funding of $3 million towards Water Quality Improvement projects in the Apalachicola Bay and Apalachicola River Basin. The allocation of $400,000 to the protection, restoration and research of natural oyster reefs and beds came as a result of his leadership during the 2013 Legislative Session and budgetary process. Public Work Squads: To ensure the continuation of the public work squads from our prisons a line item of $34 million was added to the budget. This will result in a tremendous savings for the tax payer. FRS Retirement System: After numerous threats to change the retirement system, senators stood up for the hard working people of Florida and left the retirement system intact. North Florida has something unique and special and it must be recognized and protected.

Olin was an earthbound angel, before she left us the morning of April 19, after complications with pneumonia. It was a cold and rainy morning, lled with tears and sadness, but the peace that lled the air around her was like an umbrella of light, love and renewal. My sister and I credit this to one wonderful angel that came to us the night before: Anna Hogan. Mom was in great pain, struggling desperately for breath, unable to communicate, eat or drink. Our worst nightmare was taking place in front of our eyes and we felt helpless and unable to bring her any relief or comfort, until Anna Hogan arrived. She walked into Moms curtained-off room, smiling gently through the rain still glistening on her face. Calmly and succinctly, she reviewed Moms situation, symptoms and nal requests, making it a point to learn the essence of our relationship together. Janet, my sister, told her of Moms secret desire not to die in front of her children. After hearing all she needed, Anna stood and softly explained what was happening, what we should expect and what needed to be done for Moms comfort and our own. Your mother has been a proud woman all her life in her appearance, the way she lived and how she raised you. It is bothering her to be untidy to be losing control and she doesnt want the image of her death to be the last image you have of her. Lets give her the dignity she deserves, as the living, loving and beautiful human being she is while she is still here with us. With that, Anna directed me out of the room, while she and Janet freshened Mom up every way they could. Instantly you could see the difference it made to Mom and us. Moms breathing calmed down, her fever lowered; the pain seemed to have eased. Peace was returning to the room. Then Anna explained that Moms vitals were waning and how all systems were shutting down, one-by-one. Reverently she said, Jeanne is now dying. She may hold on for two more hours or two more days. It is hard to tell. But I am fairly certain your Mom will not pass in your presence. So for her sake and your own, you should prepare your nal good byes to her now, just in case. We all prayed together, cried together and said our good byes together, before hugging and driving off separately into the night. Hours later, just before dawn, while Janet and I were driving back, Mom peacefully passed away the way she wanted quietly in the presence of her friends at CenterPoint. Anna was right. She knew Moms heart and ours. Like an enlightened spiritual guide, she led us through this foreign journey of death and dying, much like an experienced caddie at a golf course youve never played before and only get one chance to get it right. We werent afraid of the situation; we just didnt want to make any mistakes that could be avoided for Moms sake her comfort her last chapter. So today, from our family, to Anna Hogan and her family in Quincy: Thank you Anna for being our Angel and our Moms.

Wearing a seatbelt is the most effective way to help prevent injuries in the event of a trafc crash. Unfortunately, many motorists do not use this important safety feature. Beginning today, Florida Highway Patrol Troopers will be taking part in the 2013 National Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign. Motorists who are not buckled up run the risk of being ticketed. This includes any passengers who may be riding in the car. The Patrol is committed to making the roadways safer through the use of education and enforcement campaigns such as Click it or Ticket, said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. Seat belts have saved thousands of lives and are one of the most effective safety tools in your vehicle. Buckle up Florida, it is the law. Since 2009, Floridas primary safety belt law requires drivers and passengers to fasten their safety belts and has saved countless lives. Three things to remember when it comes to seatbelts: Buckle up every time you get in your vehicle. Make sure your passengers are also buckled. If you already wear your safety belt, keep it up. As an incentive to increase awareness of the importance of wearing a seat belt to future drivers, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is inviting Florida middle school students to submit suggestions for a new seat belt poster and calendar for 2014. The contest will encourage students to submit ideas that will motivate others to buckle up. For more information, go to www.hsmv.gov and click on Seat Belt Poster Contest. Remember that you can dial *FHP (*347) from your cellphone to report an aggressive or impaired driver or to request roadside assistance. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efcient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com OUTDOORSwww.apalachtimes.comSection Section A Special to the TimesThis ve-pound tripletail was caught by Terri Hall of Monroe, Ga., seen here with Captain Ken Finch. Tripletail are found in tropical and temperate coastal waters around the world. The scienti c name is Lobotes surinamensis, but they have many names worldwide including black grunt, black perch, bouy sh, conchy leaf, asher and sleep sh. They are the only species in the family Lobotidae and, contrary to popular belief, are not related to grouper or any other species found along the Gulf Coast. The tripletail can grow to 35 inches in length and a weight of 41 pounds. The average weight is between 2 and 16 pounds. The most characteristic and certainly one of the most unusual behaviors exhibited by these sh is the propensity to lie just below the surface, oating with one side exposed, looking for all intents dead, hence the name sleep sh. This activity may be related to temperature regulation or it may be a hunting strategy. The principal food of the triple tail is small sh, shrimp and crabs. Young tripletail are most often collected offshore in water depths of under 210 feet. In the Gulf of Mexico, tripletail migrate to the nearshore Gulf and estuaries April October possibly due to rising water temperatures. Tripletail are most often seen and caught near structure and oating objects.

This year we have a 21 day season in federal waters and a 44 day in state waters so make sure that you know the new changes to the laws. King fish have showed up on the car bodies sights out of Mexico beach in about 50-60ft of water. Slow trolled cigar minnows on dusters will find the fish fast! Around town and down the coast, inshore fishing is at its peak for the season right now. Great trout and red fish catches are being reported daily in St. Joe and Apalachicola Bays right now. Flounder and Spanish Mackerel are also on the move and showing back up in good numbers on Cape San Blas and Crooked Island. Watch for birds and follow the plentiful bait on the surface to get in on the action! First tripletail of the season By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Despite anglers efforts to persuade federal shery managers to rescind a set of rules affecting this years red snapper season, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Service announced last week it denied both requests. Following a meeting in late April, the Gulf of Mexico Fisheries Management Council asked NOAA to rescind an action that gives NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Administrator Roy Crabtree the power to close snapper season in federal waters in states, such as Florida, with seasons that do not comply with federal regulations. The council also requested the annulment of Amendment 30B, which requires for-hire boats that hold federal reef sh permits to always comply with federal regulations regardless of state rules. Pam Anderson, operations manager at Capt. Andersons Marina in Panama City Beach, said the rules in question were established with politics in mind as a way to dissuade the states from allowing longer seasons in their territorial waters. Floridas longer 44-day season resulted in a shorter 21-day season in federal waters this year. However, Anderson said many for-hire captains still were in support of the longer state season despite the repercussions. We think it sends a message to NOAA that theyre doing it wrong, she said. We should be growing the shery to meet the demand of the shing public instead of restricting access to the shery; its a public resource. Anderson addressed the Bay County Tourist Development Council on Tuesday morning, requesting it send a letter to NOAA in support of the Gulf Councils request to rescind the pair of rules. Although NOAA denied the Gulf Councils requests just hours after the TDC pledged its support, Anderson said local anglers still are urging the community to reach out to lawmakers. Were asking folks to write anyway to their legislators and state leaders to request that we have the privilege of shing in state waters like the other citizens in the state do, Anderson said. Folks need to know about this so they can help us react to these excessively restrictive rules. Capt. Andersons Marina is home to 25 private charter boats, 20 of which hold federal shing licenses and must comply with federal regulations regardless of the longer state season. Since 2007, the number of forhire boats that hold federal permits in the Gulf has been reduced from 1,650 to 1,250, and NOAA intends to reduce the number to 1,000, Anderson said. Additionally, the commercial eet has dropped from about 800 to 400 boats in the past 10 years. Anglers also are awaiting results of a red snapper benchmark assessment, which will come out at the end of this month and provide a look at the snapper stock in the Gulf of Mexico. That is really important to us because it shows the growth of the shery, said Anderson, who noted the shery is expected to show growth to between 12 million and 15 million pounds. Thats huge because right now we only have access to 8 million pounds.

LocalThe Times | A9Thursday, May 23, 2013 including strategies for preserving old buildings, cemetery resource protec tion and sea level rise im pacts on historic resourc es. Webb even sat in on St. Augustines Historic Ar chitectural Review Board meeting and met with city planners to discuss the two towns planning proce dures and administration. Throughout the confer ence, Webb said she was impressed with the level of attention that Apalachicola received at the conference. We are going to see an increase in hands-on technical assistance in the city from the State Historic Preservation Ofce and Florida Public Archaeologi cal Network, Webb said. Apalachicola Historical Society president Tom Daly, a longtime advocate of the C hapman restoration proj e ct, was unable to attend the St. Augustine event but was credited for his efforts in lobbying for the designa t ion. Tom has been a tire l ess supporter of the Chap m an restoration effort and his efforts and communica t ion with the Florida Trust were key in securing this nomination, Webb said. According to Daly, the Chapman announcement represents a big step for w ard towards restoration. As a city of ever-in c reasing heritage tourism, Im happy that the Florida Trust recognizes the histor i cal and cultural importance of the Chapman Building, Daly said. This, combined with the interest of Uni v ersity of Florida (UF) will help us f ocus on the notable architecture of the area and the value of preservation, I hope all our citizens realize the value of our history and how that will provide even greater economic opportu n ities for the future. Daly and Webb also cred i t Tallahassee Architect and Florida Trust Board Mem b er Mark Tarmeys role in securing the Apalachicola nomination. Tarmey is the past president and current treasurer of the Florida Trust for Historic Preser v ation and his design rm, 4M Design Group is the architectural rm credited with the design of the Citys Scipio Creek Project and other past public design projects in the city. T armey also served as one of three consultants to the city for review of projects coming before the Planning and Zoning Board. As such, Tarmey is familiar with Apalachicolas historic resources. The Chapman School is the nest example of art deco architecture in North Florida and has been rec o gnized as such by UF and the Florida Trust, Tarmey said. Hopefully this des i gnation will lead to higher involvement from both UF and the Trust. The nomina t ion is intended to draw at t ention to the most signi c ant strictures in the state that require preservation funding and rehabilitation. Apalachicola has recently garnered the attention o f the Secretary of State and the State Division of His t oric Resources and this will aid in future preservation funding initiatives. Some of that Trust in v olvement, will begin later this summer. Apalachicola will host the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation during its annual Board Retreat Aug. 2. The Apala c hicola Area Historical So c iety, along with the city and other community groups will introduce the Trust to the citys historic sites, ac t ivities and amenities. To have the trust for historic preservation here in Apalachicola is a real opportunity to show off our unique and iconic struc t ures. This is our time to shine for t he Trust and show them how many posi t ive historic restoration projects have occurred in the town, said Daly. The Chapman School designation falls on the heels of a May 10 presen t ation by UF researchers that released the ndings of a three month study of the building. Two Univer s ity of Florida Preservation experts are currently prob i ng the condition of Chap m an School and its vital role in the community. The UF study is a collabora t ive effort involving many community partners and individuals including Helen Tudor, owner of the Chap m an House Museum, Leon Bloodworth, the Apala c hicola Bay Charter School, Apalachicola Historical Society, Apalachicola Bay C hamber of Commerce and local city and county gov e rnment representatives. An ongoing community survey seeking public input about the building is avail a ble at the Apalachicola Bay Chamber. The Florida Trust for Historic Preservation is a non-prot organization with more than 1600 members, and is the statewide part n er to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The mission of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation is to promote the preservation of Floridas unique cultural, historical and architectural resources This is the 12th year of the Most Endan g ered Program. Other Flor i da endangered sites added to the 2013 list include the Munroe House and L ewis Spring House in Tallahas s ee, William Camp House in Ocala and the Miami Womens Club. Entire city blocks even made the list this year, including down town Palatka, the Orange City Historic District and Milton Historic District.

The cast stone structure was designed by E. R. James to contain eight classrooms and an auditorium. A. D. Lawson from Port St. Joe was the contractor for the new building and also for the renovation of the existing building at Chapman High School. The initial contract called for the completion of the building within 250 days, but construction did not progress as rapidly as anticipated. The school board took over direct supervision of the work in 1932 with George Marshall placed in charge of construction. Eventually the Depression-era Civil Works Administration took over construction of the building. When the Civil Works Administration was phased out, the Federal Emergency Relief Administration took over the project and nally completed it in 1934. The Chapman High School class of 1934 was the rst to graduate from the Chapman Auditorium. This building housed the high school classes at the Chapman School. When the Apalachicola High School was constructed on 14th Street in the 1970s the classrooms were renovated into ofces for the Franklin County School Board. The school board deeded the property to Franklin County in 2009. The building is the nest example of Art Deco architecture in Franklin County. It is adorned with cast stone details of crabs, owls and pelicans. Above the auditorium stage is an intricate scene in cast stone which includes a depiction of the Chapman Auditorium. CHAPMAN from page A1 CHAPMAN AAUDItTORIUM away, or 8 hours by automobile, from the Franklin County Courthouse, retained the services of JMT Management Corporation, a foreclosure sales atten d ance rm, to bid on the property on the banks behalf. Johnson said JMT had bid at judicial sales around the state on the banks behalf, and that without ex c eption, in all other cases, JMT Management suc c essfully performed and completed its services. In this case, however, something went wrong, at least as far as the bank was concerned, with one of the citys most famous residences and one worth consid e rably more than was paid by the bidder. Built in 1894 out of h eart pine and black cypress by August Mohr, superintendent of the Cypress Lumber company, the Queen Anne Style home was the work of George and John Marshall. In the late 1930s, it be c ame the home of Margaret and Alexander Key, a wellknown author and illustrator whose novels include Is l and Light, The Wrath and the Wind, and Night on Witch Mountain, later made into a Disney movie. The couple divorced in the 1940s, and Margaret, also an author, supported herself for more than half a century by working as a newspaper reporter, and writ i ng magazine articles. Both she and her sister, Bess, l ived in the house until they were well into their 90s. Margaret died in 1996 and directed in her will that upon the sale of her estate, proceeds be given to the Apalachicola Municipal Library board, of which she was a long time member. About $350,000 plus inter e st resulted from the bequest, after the home was ac q uired in 1998 by Naples physician Dr. Gregory and Sally Leach. The couple resumed restoration work dating back to the 1920s, when the home was named Villa Rosa by owner Anna Riscilli. A small cigar factory was oper a ted in an out-building during those years. By November 2012, h owever, the home had fallen into foreclosure, complicated by the bankruptcy of one of the homes several owner entities, which in c luded Apalach Classic Systems Inc., Gregory Leach, Sally Leach, Advanced Medical Center LLC and Logi c al Investments. The original foreclosure sale, set for Nov. 14, 2012, was postponed until May 2013, and then set for 11 a.m. May 16. In a May 8 packet from a legal assistant to Johnson to a senior sales coordinator at JMT, the bank provided all the documentation needed to go ahead with the foreclosure sale, including the proof of newspaper publication and a $70 check to t he county required before a sale can be held. They noted in the cover letter that the nal bid amount was $832,344. The clerk property conducted the judicial sale, ac c ording to the judges order and state law, County At t orney Michael Shuler said. They did everything ap p ropriately; all the things that should have been done were properly done. The plaintiffs are not alleging any wrongdoing by Clerk of Court Marcia Johnsons ofce, but are con t ending that JMTs representative assigned to the sale, Deborah Faircloth, had forgotten about the as s ignment and did not appear for plaintiff at the sale. Because of this, the banks lawyers a rgue, the nal sale price on the property is only 0.001% of both the val u e of the Property and the Final Judgment amount. The lawyers, in citing a 1966 Florida Supreme Court summary of 75 years of case law, note the general rule that mere inadequacy of price is not a ground for set t ing aside a judicial sale. But, as noted in the same ruling, where the inad e quacy is gross and is shown to result from any mis t ake, accident, surprise, fraud, misconduct or irregu l arity upon the part of either the purchaser or other person connected with the sale, with resulting injus t ice to t he complaining party, equity will act to prevent the wrong result. The banks attorneys contend their client is clear l y the innocent victim of JMT Managements mis t ake, and cite a 1986 case where a calendaring error resulted in an unconscionably inadequate price. Circuit Judge Angela Dempsey likely will have to decide whether or not to set aside and reschedule the sale, unless the matter plays out past her likely reas s ignment fulltime to Leon County in July. Meanwhile, Michelle Maxwell, the assistant clerk of courts who handled the sale, wont be certifying the sale in the usual 10 days, that action stymied by the p ending motion. If Ethridge eventually obtains the house, he will have to pay about $34,404 in back taxes, on three sepa r ate parcels, said Tax Collector Jimmy Harris. KEY HOUSE from page A1

LocalA10 | The Times Thursday, May 23, 2013museum founder, George Kirvin Floyd, to make the event happen. This is the rst year we did it, and its the largest and most ambitious event weve done. One unforgettable highlight of the weekend was the reading of the Emancipation Proclamation at Riverfront Park by Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson, anked by two young Apalachicola black men, shirtless, and shackled in chains, with the Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church Choir behind him in robes. We wanted to make every effort was made to tell the story of northsouth, military-civilian, black-white, and not leave anybody out, West said. There are elements of history that have been neglected, here in Apalachicola. This is something well expand on, to talk about black history. We know the Apalachicola River was a pathway to freedom for escaping slaves. They knew if they reached the blockade, the Union employed black pilots. Early Saturday, representatives of the federal Navy arrived at the same park, portrayed by members of the Panhandle Players, to order the port closed. Jeff Ilardi spoke on behalf of Apalachicolas then mayor, and nailed Lincolns proclamation up for public viewing. They actually based their dialogue on historical accounts of what happened to announce a proclamation, West said. On Saturday night, members of the Panhandle Players put on a dramatized adaptation of Alexander Keys Island Light on the stage at the St. George Island Lighthouse. With Hank Kozlowsky as narrator, backed by at times comic, at times sentimental cast, the show attracted a packed outdoor house, and was well-received by the enthusiastic audience. The numbers for the weekend were not overwhelming, but were steady, with the quality of the presentations eclipsing any similar event in recent memory. West estimated more than 300 people attended the eight lectures held during the weekend, both at the museum and the Center for History, Culture, and Art, with 459 visitors to the museum during the weekend. About 350 people visited the re-enactors encampment at Battery Park. We planned to keep it small, tried to keep it small, for something we could build on in coming years, she said. It met and exceeded all our expectations in terms of attendance, enthusiasm, and the quality of all the lectures and events. The keynote lecture Friday evening at the museum drew a standing room only audience to hear a keynote speech by Ken Johnston, director of the National Civil War Naval Museum in Columbus, Ga. Johnston delivered a stirring blend of historic fact with inspiration on the meaning of living history. The weekend marked the opening of a new Civil War exhibit at the museum, in large part due to the efforts of Mark Parsley, a longtime lover of Civil War history, born and raised in Richmond, Va., who has spent decades researching and collecting artifacts from Civil War sites. Parsley helped select items the museum purchased for the exhibit, which is further enhanced by materials collected by Apalachicola librarian Caty Green for inclusion. When I was standing in the Confederate museum in downtown Richmond, I wanted to build something that had that type of air, that same type of quality, he said. The Union encampment at Battery Park included members of the USS Fort Henry Living History Unit. Also taking part in different events were the crew of the USS Water Witch (afliated with the National Civil War Naval Museum), and the USS Pawnee Marine Guard. Members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, in period dress, from Crawfordville, Blountstown and Panama City, re-enacted the sewing of the regimental ag from Apalachicola as well as clothing and bandages for soldiers at the Raney and Orman House Museums. Speakers on Saturday at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture, and Art included Dr. Jon Sheppard, who holds a doctorate in history from Florida State, on the Defense of Florida, 1861-1862, and Sean Klimek, an Air Force ofcer studying for her FSU doctorate speaking on Monitor v. Merrimac. David Gregory, a retired curator of education at the Museum of Florida History in Tallahassee, spoke on Skulkers and Deserters of the Gulf Coast; Dr. Maurice Melton, a history professor at Albany State, spoke on slave Moses Dallas, who worked as a maritime pilot for the Confederate Navy; and Dr. Ed Wiser, an adjunct professor at the Naval War College, who talked about James Tomb, Confederate Torpedo Boat Skipper. The nal lecture was given by Mark Curenton, a past president of the Apalachicola Area Historical Society, who traced the history and signicance of the First Florida Federal Cavalry. Robyn Rennick told stories about the The Cape San Blas Salt Works Raid at the Orman House, among several reenactors and living history people who offered events throughout town. Our primary goal was to forge partnerships and relationships between all the various organizations to work together to shine a spotlight of all the opportunities that exist here for historical and educational and appreciation, said West. She said they plan to do the weekend again next year, although are not sure at what time of the year. This depends in large part on the availability of reenactor groups, who often have to weigh competing events. Also, the Main Street group, which played a big part in this event, had just nished a busy plein air event, West said. We got a lot of positive feedback that was very encouraging, she said.
