According to their online mission statement, the Trust advocates for legislation and funding in support of historic preservation on behalf of Florida’s many historic sites, museums and parks and promotes the preservation of the architectural, historical and archaeological heritage of Florida through advocacy, education and historic property stewardship. Recently, the Trust named Chapman Auditorium as one of the 11 most endangered historic structures in Florida. Anne Peery, executive director of the Trust, said although the visitors did not tour the city as a group, every attendee toured on their own by car, bicycle or on foot. Lorrie Muldowney, secretary of the Trust was struck by the contrast between her home in Sarasota and Apalachicola “There is a different level of activity here,” she said. “It was interesting and fun to visit.” Peery said many on the retreat, especially those from South Florida, were visiting Apalachicola for the rst time. Preservationists praise Apalachicola’s historic heritage By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin County students won’t be the only ones returning to new rooms on Monday. Sam Culpepper, director of the Florida Department of Corrections Region 1, told Apalachicola city commissioners Aug. 6 the cross-county relocation of about 282 inmates from Apalachicola’s Bay City Work Camp to the new work camp at Franklin Correctional Institution in Carrabelle would be conducted Monday. “We understand that’s the rst day of schools,” he said. “We won’t roll out the buses until 10 a.m. that morning. We want to make this transition as easy as we possibly can.” Culpepper said he expected the intake process to be complete by Wednesday, at which time the work crew would resume. “We hope you understand that all of those inmates have to be reentered into a database,” he said. “We hope by Wednesday we can start relocating those inmates back into the community to start work.” Culpepper, who was accompanied by about 10 DOC of cials, including FCI Warden Christopher Atkins, stressed that he did not foresee any cutbacks in inmate squads. “My commitment to you is I don’t anticipate any disruption of inmate services that we provide to the city of Apalachicola,” he said. He said that transportation of inmates, which is handled by the cities and counties and not by DOC, should not be an obstacle to continuation of inmate work squads. “One non-DOC supervisor can transport up to 14 inmates by himself in a van. He doesn’t require a CDL (commercial drivers license),” Culpepper said. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com A crew of Florida’s most powerful politicians gathered at the water’s edge Tuesday in Apalachicola and brought out the heavy artillery in the state’s long simmering water wars with Georgia and Alabama. The unusual visit by Governor Rick Scott, and both U.S. Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio, in the small coastal town came less than a day after the state received the go-ahead on the request for a commercial shery failure it rst sought nearly a year ago. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on Monday declared a failure for the oyster shery along the entire west coast of Florida, which is primarily centered in Apalachicola Bay. Water wars rage in Apalach VOL. 128 ISSUE 16 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com About 250 people from every portion of the county attended a media event Tuesday organized by the Apalachicola Riverkeeper. An hour before the eld hearing by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, the stairs to the front door of the county courthouse were packed tight with protestors. Passing vehicles honked horns in solidarity as the crowd chanted, “Save our river! Save our bay!” and “What do we want? Water!” Hundreds rally to save Apalach Bay By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Three leaders of a pair of failed banks pleaded not guilty in federal court Aug. 8 to a 12-count indictment alleging they conspired to bilk the government out of nearly $4 million. Attorneys for Terry Dubose, Elwood West and Frank Baker did the talking during their rst court appearance since they were indicted last month. Magistrate Larry Bodiford set their bonds at $25,000 each and outlined the conditions of their pretrial supervision: no guns, drugs or excessive alcohol use; no law violations; no travel outside the Northern District of Florida without written permission; no passports; and no contact between the alleged conspirators except to discuss legal strategies with their attorneys present. Investigators worked for two years to build the case against Dubose, West and Baker, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Gayle Littleton, who will prosecute the case. She described the allegations against them as “a pretty simple fraud scheme.” The men waived their right to a speedy trial. Bodiford set the case for trial in February, despite a push by Claire Rauscher, an attorney representing Dubose, to schedule it for April.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, August 15, 2013 Nelson, a Democrat, and Ru bio, the Republican junior senator, sat side by side before a packed audience in the courthouse annex as they conducted a rare Senate subcommittee eld hearing on the adverse effects that diminished river ows have had on the oyster industry in Apalachicola Bay. The buzz that followed the twohour hearing – in which both the Army Corps of Engineers’ water management policies and the ever-increasing water consump tion by users upriver drew a hefty share of harsh criticism – was still in the air at lunchtime when Scott announced at the riverfront that Florida plans to le suit next month in the U.S. Supreme Court to halt Georgia’s “unchecked and growing consumption of water.” Scott, anked by Rubio and Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Pan ama City), said negotiations with Georgia ofcials have proved fruit less. “Georgia has not negotiated in good faith. They’ve kept our water,” he said. “It’s been going on for decades. Now it’s coming to a stop.” The governor said Alabama has yet to decide whether to join the suit, which seeks injunctive relief against what he called “Georgia’s unmitigated and unsustainable upstream consumption of water from the Chattahoochee and Flint River Basins. “This lawsuit will be targeted toward one thing: ghting for the future of Apalachicola. This is a bold, historic legal action for our state,” Scott said. “But this is our only way forward after 20 years of failed negotiations with Georgia. We must ght for the people of this region. The economic future of Apalachicola Bay and Northwest Florida is at stake.” Nelson, who was visiting the Three Servicemen Statue Detail at the time of Scott’s announce ment, applauded the suit. “It’s not only that water is being held back from the Chattahoochee, the state of Georgia has no regulations con trolling the ow of water in the Flint River basin,” he said. “Florida has had water regulations in place since 1972. A farmer on the state line must get permission to drill a well in Florida, but he can cross the state line into Georgia and drill as many wells as he wants.” Blasting the Corps In assuming the lead role at the hearing, part of a subcommit tee of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Trans portation, Nelson blasted the Corps’ persistence stance that it can only consider congressionally authorized purposes, such as ood control, navigation, energy and environmental impact, when it al locates water. “It’s about following the law, and that’s what we have to do,” said Col. Jon Chytka, the newly ap pointed commander of the Corps’ Mobile District, which administers the ve federal, and 10 non-feder al, reservoirs in the Apalachicola – Chattahoochee – Flint basin. He said the Environmental Im pact Statement, which will address the effect on three endangered mussels and the Gulf sturgeon, won’t be completed until early 2016. “The reason we don’t think we can expedite it is the technical complexities,” Chytka said. “Anything that needs to be ex pedited can be expedited,” Nelson said. “You’re at a disadvantage here, just 13 days on the job. I want you to know I have talked to the generals not only at the Atlanta of ce but also all the way up to the commanding general of the Corps. I want to know why did they send you? Why didn’t they send the gen erals I’ve been talking to? “This is the kind of stuff we’ve been hearing for years as we’ve been trying to solve this problem,” the senator said. “I want the Corps at the Mobile level to understand how serious this matter is. This is a dire situation that has been go ing on for years, and it still hasn’t been able to be resolved.” In this middle portion of the hearing, the senators also heard a report on the shery disaster declaration from Emily Menashes, acting director of the National Ma rine Fisheries Service’s Ofce of Sustainable Fisheries. She said a combination of drought, reduced ows downriver and increased salinities in the Apalachicola Bay estuary contrib uted to the shery failure, and it would now be up to Congress to decide whether to appropriate funds to mitigate those damages. “We generally work with the state and affected communities to identify resources they would need,” Menashes said, noting di rect revenue impacts, as well as social and economic impacts, may be factored in. She said funds could be allo cated for direct assistance to the industry, as well as such things as oyster reef restoration, research, monitoring and economic devel opment. “It’s a very broad set of activities that could be funded,” Menashes said. Like his colleagues, Rubio said he planned to support a congres sional appropriation but cautioned not to lose sight of the long-term is sue. “I think it’s fantastic we could nd funding for people who are suffering,” he said. “That’s going to help people who are hurting to survive, but to sustain themselves, this water issue has to be solve. “It’s not enough, we can’t stop here,” he said. “I don’t want a lot of solution on the front end and for getting that we still have this wa ter issue. This doesn’t necessarily solve that.” Nelson said additional BP money could also help the indus try. “We’ll be looking at every pos sible source of funding,” he said. “Perhaps once the judge in federal court in New Orleans decides on the ne and the money starts to ow through the Restore Act, per haps that would be another source of funding.” Taking on Georgia Also on that panel was Jon Ste verson, executive director of the Northwest Florida Water Manage ment District, who outlined steps that the city and state have taken to maximize and conserve fresh water ow into the state. But, he stressed, Florida can not control the volume of water entering the state. He said Geor gia now controls more than 90 per cent of the water withdrawn from the ACF system, and the metro Atlanta area uses three times the water for public supply than all 16 counties and municipalities of the Florida Panhandle combined. “The good Lord giveth, and the Corps and Georgia taketh away,” Steverson said. “At a minimum, the Corps should mandate that Georgia develop strict conservation mea sures as a condition to entertain ing any further withdrawals from the ACF system,” he said, stress ing that the Corps’ current efforts to revise their draft water control plan offers a chance “to restruc ture the priority system they use in existing operations to assign greater weight to downstream needs and strive to mimic historic ow patterns.” The hearing opened with an appearance by Southerland, who provided background on the leg islative progress for the past two years regarding securing more water for the oyster shery. After reading his prepared statement, he offered some personal remarks. “This is not just about oysters, this is about people,” he said. “We are not just growing oysters here. We have the responsibility for growing families. This is affecting families; it has affected children. “It is imperative we nd the funding to do the responsible thing,” Southerland said. “It’s time for Florida to get its fair shake.” The hearing closed with an ap pearance by three representatives of the local community, Dan Tons meire, executive director of the Apalachicola RiverKeeper, Shan non Hartseld, president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association, and Dr. Karl Havens, a professor of food and agricultural sciences at the University of Flor ida, who has been working closely with an oyster recovery task force formed after the BP oil spill. “There’s never been a period as low as in the last two years,” Havens said. “The river fell be low the historical record; it was unprecedented.” He said rebuilding 1,000 acres of the bay’s substrate with oyster shells could reduce the decade it will take to recover down to two or three years. “We don’t see any hope in the near future,” Hartseld said. “We don’t have six more months; we don’t have that. We need to open that river back up and get us some ow down here.” Hartseld yielded the remain der of his time to Ricky Banks, the vice president of the seafood work ers association, who spoke elo quently of the oystermen’s plight. “In Atlanta, they’re going to keep having babies. They’re going to keep needing more and more water,” he said. “Let Atlanta stop watering their grass a little bit.” “What we have here is a system being run by man that was created by God,” he said. “When man steps in, he has a way of messing things up. Man made this disaster, man can x this disaster. Man needs to do his job.” F l o ri d a D ep a r t men t o f He al t h in F r a n k l i n C o u nt y 1 3 9 1 2 t h S t re e t A pa lac h i c ola F L 3 2 3 2 0 ( 8 5 0 ) 6 5 3 2 111 H e l e n C oo k A R N P D r I v a n B a ck e r m a n W O M E N S H E A L T H C L I NI C & % ' $ ' + & ' $ ' ( $ $ % ' % ' + % & ( $ ( $ + + $ ' + ) + ' $ & ( $ C l ini c Sc h ed u le : M o n d ay F r i d ay # A p a l a c hi c o l a C l ini c T u e sd a y W ed n e sd a y # ( ' ( $ C a l l t o s c he d ule y o u r a p p o i nt m e nt a t ( 8 5 0 ) 6 5 3 2 111 WATER from page A1 LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Enjoying Apalachicola oysters on the riverfront are, from left, Sen.

Cal Allen Incumbent Cal Allen has served on the Franklin County Tourist Development Council, the Apalachee Regional Planning Commission and as liaison to Franklin County Emergency Management for the city. Allen said he wants a good, open, honest and fair campaign. In a July 19 interview, he said, Im looking forward to this. We have a lot of interesting things going on right now. Experience has given me the voices of reason and judgment to see things from other peoples point of view. He said his status as a retiree gives him the time needed to ful ll the duties of a city council member. Allen expressed optimism on the topic of repaying Carrabelles construction debt for updating the water and sewer system. I feel like were making real progress. There will be an increase in rates but not as much as we were thinking. I believe we will come out debt-free sooner rather than later, said Allen. If reelected, Allen plans to work with the county to obtain RESTORE funds and be sure that Carrabelle receives its fair share of the BP settlement. This is important, said Allen. We have a lot of good we can do with that money in Carrabelle if we can come to an agreement. I would love to see some movement on that. Among the pet projects, Allen envisions tackling, if funding becomes available, are restoration of the Gulfside wetland known as the Frog Pond as part of a stormwater drainage system and getting as many Carrabelle homes as possible on city water and sewer to eliminate the use of septic tanks. Mandatory trash pick-up would be nice if we could enforce it but we have too many people who cant afford it, he said. Allen said he also hopes to see Carrabelle become a regional provider of water in keeping with the suggestion of the Northwest Florida Water Management District. That would cut operational costs for everyone, he said. Research by the county has shown the city is in the best position to do that. He foresees a future where the city economy is rmly based in tourism with some commercial seafood harvesting. Allen also hopes to see manufacturing in Carrabelle. As far as providing jobs, we have to create a climate friendly to business and entrepreneurship, he said. Allen invites voters with questions to contact him at 524-1124 or calallen2@yahoo.com. Brenda La Paz As your current city commissioner I thank you for allowing me the honor of being your public servant the past two years. During that time I have always informed and involved the public in ongoing city business. I have met weekly with constituents in order to obtain citizen input and to better meet our citizens needs. I have attended every commission meeting since elected and demonstrated integrity on all levels. I always represent Carrabelle in a proud and professional manner and have proven myself to be an honest, fair, hardworking, transparent, and dependable leader. During my initial term I diligently researched many of the Florida statutes, city charter, and code of ordinances, all of which the commission needs to comply with so that best city business practices may be put into action. I research every item that comes before the commission and report on those items, which the public has a right to hear. I have always asked the dif cult questions and will continue to encourage public discussion. I participate in Economic Diversi cation Summits where community leaders work together to bring new businesses and jobs to our area and to nd ways to support existing businesses. I provide input to Carrabelles EDC forum on topics such as new industries and mobile broadband service. I have attended numerous meetings with business owners interested in relocating their business to the Hexaport Building. I work closely with Carrabelles engineering and nancial consultants. I attend workshops and lectures to learn about water and sewer matters, emergency management, public health concerns, storm water and watershed issues, and traf c safety. These ongoing activities help me to better represent you as a city commissioner and as a member of the countys RESTORE Act Council. During last years budget workshops, I strongly opposed the proposed 9.27 millage rate and insisted on a lower rate of 8.75. After hard decisions on cutbacks, a rate of 8.77 was unanimously approved. I will continue working hard to keep city property taxes lowered. At my suggestion, reuse-water irrigation lines will be installed with the expanded landscaping project along US 98E to 30A, saving the city thousands of dollars. Plans now include reuse water line extensions to the cemeteries and nearby parks. With determination and weeks of research I was able to sort out the very complicated sewer plant expansion loan/grant program. I have met and worked with legislative aides and DEP loan administrators and positioned the city to restructure the DEP loan which will now be more bene cial to the rate payers and demonstrate long-term nancial responsibility. My current projects include jumpstarting the revitalization of Carrabelles commercial district by advocating for public CRA meetings and planning, continued efforts to clean up garbage dump sites which cause health and environmental concerns, and completion of the 12th Street public recreational shing pier. I am dedicated and work full-time to effectively get things done on behalf of every Carrabelle citizen. Franklin Daniels Franklin Daniels announced his candidacy on April 19. He retired from Carrabelles water and sewer department in 2012. I worked for the city of Carrabelle for 30something years until I retired, he said. I want to run for the city commission to help the old people. Audrey O. Massey Audrey Olivia Massey, 41, works for the Florida Department of Corrections. She is concerned for the most vulnerable segments of the community. I come from a political family, she said, I know what Carrabelle needs. Theres nothing for the kids and theres nothing for people to do that come to town. Id like to take the Carrabelle gym and get a grant to put something in here for kids. Wakulla just got a grant to build a YMCA. Id like to see a YMCA or a skating rink here. That would put some people to work too. Massey is also concerned about Carrabelles senior citizens. We used to see 100 people for lunch at the senior center, she said. Now we barely see a dozen. Massey said she appreciates the plight of people on xed incomes. I can promise the people of Carrabelle I will never vote for utility bills to go up, she said. Referring to the citys debt for its water treatment upgrade, she said, If the Department of Environmental Protection cant wait for their money, tell them to come and pull the pipes up out of the ground and take it back. I guarantee they dont want that. We need visitors and jobs, Massey said. We need to see money managed better. It was a waste of money to buy the Moore House when they could have spent the money on riverside property for commercial use. There is no longer anywhere on our waterfront to dock commercial boats. Its time to give somebody else a chance to see if they can get something done. Massey said she strongly supports the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum. Its a major priority of mine, she said. She supports mandatory trash pick-up but wants to see the city take over the operation rather than a private company. She also said she passionately wants to clean up Carrabelles roadsides and sees litter as a major issue. Addressing questions about her father, Mayor Curly Messer, she said, We hardly ever see eye-to-eye on anything. We probably debate more than the presidential candidates. She said accusations of nepotism are unfounded under the law and in reality. I have led all of my paperwork. I like fair politics, she said. I just want to run a clean election. Massey said she plans to recuse herself from any issues where there is a conict of interest including prison matters. Nikki Mock Millender Hello, I am Nikki Mock Millender and I am asking for your vote and support for Carrabelle city commissioner. I have lived in the city of Carrabelle all of my life. My husband Dusty and I are raising our three children here. I have worked with Franklin County for 11 years and currently serve as county parks and recreation director. Being a lifelong resident, working and raising a family in Carrabelle causes me to be concerned for the future of Carrabelle. The only promise that I will make is that I will listen to your interests and concerns and work with other commissioners to determine if the issue is in the citys best interest. I will be your voice and stand and ght for a better, more nancially sound Carrabelle. New revenue resources need to be found and I will seek out fresh ideas and possibilities for our town. I will work hard to bring events and activities for our teenagers. Our children need to be involved in positive events and this will be one of my main goals. I will look at our spending policies, and help develop procedures supported by all commissioners in open meetings that will ensure a balanced budget and reduction of nancial liabilities. I will do my best for Carrabelle citizens and our hometown. Thank you.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, August 15, 2013 The landing at the top of the stairs was reserved for elected ofcials, and it too was packed to stand ing room only with com missioners from Franklin and surrounding counties, Apalachicola’s mayor, and city commission members from both Apalachicola and Carrabelle, and mem bers of the legislative delegation. As the faithful trick led in swelling the crowd, strains of country music, blues and reggae echoed across US 98. Many mem bers of the throng waved handmade protest signs. About a dozen members of the press lmed the pro test or snapped pictures of the scene. A dozen speakers kicked off with County Commis sioner Smokey Parrish, who welcomed members of the Senate and the crowd “on behalf of Apalachicola River and Bay.” He called for change to, “sustain our culture, heritage and history.” He introduced State Senator Bill Montford (DBlountstown) who gave one of the most stirring speeches of the event. “Right is right, and wrong is wrong, and what we have done to the Apalachicola River and Bay is wrong,” he said, describing the bay as a “God-given gift” unique in the world. “We want our fair share of water and a little more,” he told a cheering crowd. Montford was followed by Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson who spoke elo quently on the destruction of the bay ecosystem. He said the people of the county have been forced to, “helplessly watch the destruction of a resource capable of sustaining and providing employment.” He criticized Atlanta’s “un principled thirst brought on by a lack of planning and unbridled growth.” “The lack of action in Washington, including the Supreme Court, is more offensive than the with holding of water from our river,” Johnson said. Next was a surprise visit from State Sen. Aaron Bean (R-Fernandina Beach), who is vacationing on St. George Island with 36 fam ily members, including his brother Mason Bean. He said this is the 14th year for the “Cool Beans family reunion.” “There is something special here that’s worth ghting for. It is a humon gous deal that the Senate would move their commit tee meeting to this little town,” he said. “I have to be a realist and tell you that this is just the rst step. People up north will hear about this and ask ‘What’s the big deal?’” Bean urged the crowd to keep pushing and to post their demands on so cial media. “Georgia will not roll over on this,” he warned after the rally. He said he was invited to attend the hearing but,”I gave my seat to somebody who has a family and makes a living on the bay. He has a stronger voice.” Bean was followed by Carrabelle City Commis sioner Cal Allen who re minded the crowd that a recent study from Florida State University showed 90 percent of gag grouper harvested in the Gulf begin life in the Apalachicola es tuary. County Commission er Pinki Jackel and Chad Taylor from the Riparian County Stakeholder coali tion expressed solidarity, followed by County Com missioner Noah Lockley. Himself an oysterman, Lockley said, “In the be ginning, God made a per fect world. Now we must come together to get this xed. We’re taking it all the way to Washington so they might as well get ready.” The Rev. John Sink of Eastpoint spoke in the form of a prayer. “God hears our prayers. We want our leg islators to hear them too,” he said. The last speaker was Halsey Beshears (R-Mon ticello), who apologized for being delayed and prom ised not to give up on the ght to save the river.

Local A6 | The Times Thursday, August 15, 2013 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star.com Howard Nabors, Frank lin County’s new public works superintendent, is already facing a number of challenges. Nabors told commis sioners ooding was a problem in several areas of the county during heavy July rains. Commissioner Cheryl Sanders agreed with him and said, “The city of Carrabelle was completely inundated.” Carrabelle’s sewer system was temporar ily overwhelmed by ood ing on July 22, forcing the dismissal of The Nest children’s summer activity program and leading to an advisory not to use wash ing machines or toilets un til oodwaters subsided. Sanders said ooding occurred between Putnal and Franklin streets and in front of the old Junior Food Store in Lanark Vil lage; at the site of the sharp curve at site of the old El’s Court Motel be tween Carrabelle and La nark; and at “Smokey Hol low” on the eastern edge of Carrabelle. Nabors said Hog Wild Barbeque east of the Tillie Miller Bridge was “com pletely ooded out.” Commissioner William Massey, who is employed by Carrabelle’s public works department, said the restaurant ooded during the July 22 deluge. He told commissioners he installed a pump to help owner Ken La Paz, remove oodwater from the eat ery and cleaned ditches in the area. He said Florida Department of Transpor tation (DOT) did not re spond to a request for help in clearing the ditches on the state right of way. Nabors said there was also ooding at Gilbert and Third streets at U.S. 98 in Eastpoint. Sanders said under growth in the state rightof-way is creating a prob lem for the county. “We’ve got a problem,” she said. “We can clean out all of our ditches, but the state ditches need to be cleaned out. We need to contact the DOT and tell them the whole county needs to be done.” Massey said the ditch es east of Hog Wild are blocked up all the way to the river. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked why Trans eld Services, the contrac tor charged with maintain ing the state right-of-way, has not been cleaning along U.S. 98 in Franklin County this summer. “I’m not seeing Transeld in the county as much,” she said. “I don’t know what’s going on.” Sanders said begin ning in September 2012, Transeld only mows a 6foot strip along the state right-of-way twice a year, in March and December. In the past, the state mowed the shoulder com pletely several times a year. After a number of meetings with representa tives of the Florida Wild ower Foundation and the Panhandle Wildower Alli ance in 2012, the DOT an nounced the policy of re duced mowing in Wakulla, Franklin and Gulf counties to protect native plants and migrating butteries. Wakulla since has in creased the mowed area on roadsides to eight feet to improve roadside visibility. In June, when the change to the mow ing schedule was ex plained to commission ers, both Sanders and 2012 Annual Drinking W ater Quality Report Lanark V illage W ater & Sew er District W e a r e p l e a s e d t o p r e s e n t t o y o u t h i s y e a r ’ s A n n u a l W a t e r Q u a l i t y R e p o r t T h i s r e p o r t i s d e s i g n e d t o i n f o r m y o u a b o u t t h e q u a l i t y w a t e r a n d s e r v i c e s w e d e l i v e r t o y o u e v e r y d a y O u r c o n st a n t g o a l i s t o i n f o r m y o u a b o u t t h e q u a l i t y w a t e r a n d s e r v i c e s w e d e l i v e r t o y o u e v e r y d a y O u r c o n st a n t g o a l i s t o p r o v i d e y o u w i t h a s a f e a n d d e p e n d a b l e s u p p l y d r i n k i n g w a t e r W e w a n t y o u t o u n d e r st a n d t h e e f f o r t s w e m a k e t o c o n t i n u a l l y i m p r o v e t h e w a t e r t r e a t m e n t p r o c e s s a n d p r o t e c t o u r w a t e r r e s o u r c e s.

Local The Times | A7 Thursday, August 15, 2013 Commissioner Smokey Parrish ex pressed concerns about visibility and wildlife suddenly entering the roadway from the shoulders. On Aug. 6, com missioners instruct ed County Planner Alan Pierce to send a letter to DOT and Transeld request ing that ditches in the state right-of-way be cleaned countywide. Commissioner Noah Lockley said his district ooded between 24th and 25th streets, but the problem was a blocked culvert, not closed ditches. Nabors said county crews had cleaned out many ditches and re placed some old metal culverts and agreed DOT was not responsive to requests for help. He said the coun ty has no oyster shell on hand to use for repairs, and he is uncertain when shell will be available. Nabors said the heavy rain has also caused a serious problem at Carlton Street in Lanark Village, which is currently closed because it might be unsafe. Pierce said for about 10 days, wa ter has been heard running under the street. “They’re afraid that the road is being undermined,” he said. “We don’t know what it is. It could be an old culvert we don’t know about, an old U.S. Army pipe, a spring, it could be a sinkhole, it could be anything. Because of the sound, we’re afraid that the road might collapse.” Nabors said an adjacent house has shifted on its foundation. He said the road must be cut to deter mine what is happening. Pierce said the former Lanark Village Water and Sewer has no pipes in the area. He said the area is underlain with limestone, so a sink hole could form there. Job openings Nabors told commissioners at the Aug. 6 meeting that he has two job openings in his department. The commission voted unanimous ly to allow him to advertise for the positions. Jackel asked if the county public works crews would be at full capac ity after the hires. Nabors said ve crews are working in the county now, and the two new employees would be alternate inmate crew su pervisors. He said the county didn’t have enough trucks and equipment to run more crews. Jackel suggested an additional crew could be added if another truck was purchased. Jackel asked if a foreman’s po sition already advertised had been lled. Nabors replied that Tommy Sadler was the best person for the job because he had worked with the road department for 25 years. He said he is waiting to see if Sadler can be recertied to supervise inmates after he was disciplined in May for using a county vehicle for personal business without authorization. “I want to do the right thing and wait until it’s all said and done with Tommy,” Nabors said. “All this took place with the inmates before I took over. I’ve heard ve or six things. I’ve heard it was a load of dirt, then I heard it was a piece of bed iron he picked up off the side of the road.”  o Z ‘ ¨ f ¦ £ ˆ ‘  } ‘ ¨ €  „ ¤  b   b ‘ ‘ ”  ¨ ¨  { ” ¨ — ˆ ‘  ‚ ¨ W e a r e p le a s e d t o p r es en t t o y o u t hi s y e a r's A nn u a l W a t er Q u a li t y R ep o r t. i s r ep o r t i s desig n e d t o inf o r m y o u a b o u t t h e q u a li t y wa t er a n d s er v ices w e de li v er t o y o u e v er y d a y O ur co n s t a n t g o a l i s t o p r o v ide y o u w i t h a s a f e a n d dep en d a b le s u p p l y o f dr in k in g wa t er W e wa n t y o u t o un der s t a n d t h e e o r ts w e m a k e t o co n t in u a l l y im p r o v e t h e wa t er t r e a t m en t p r o ces s a n d p r o t e c t o ur wa t er r es o ur ces.

It could be an old culvert we don’t know about, an old U.S. Army pipe, a spring, it could be a sinkhole, it could be anything. Because of the sound, we’re afraid that the road might collapse.”AA lan PP ierce, county planner RAINS from page A6 Work is planned on Begonia Street and C.C Land Road in Eastpoint during the coming month. At the Aug. 6 county meeting, County Planner Alan Pierce said Eastpoint Water and Sewer plans to cut Begonia Street where it meets U.S. 98. He said C.W. Roberts would do the work. Howard Nabors, who leads the county’s road department, said one of the two water mains that runs under Begonia is no longer usable and will be capped. He said Begonia has already been cut at the same point to service one of the water lines. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked that the project be tabled until she could review the scope of work. Pierce told her EWS was informing the county of the project, not asking permission. He said it was possible the cut had already been made. Jackel asked if a county permit was needed, and Pierce said it was not because the cut will be within the state right-of-way and has been coordi nated with the Florida Department of Transporta tion. Pierce said C.W. Roberts would repair the street to standard county specications. “I have concerns,” Jackel said. “I don’t want to stop it. I’d just like to make sure they’re not cut ting more than they need to. Patches are always a problem.” “In an act of good faith, they could at least get a hold of the commissioner for the district and talk to her about it,” Chairman Cheryl Sanders said. Resurfacing of two miles of C.C. Land Road is also scheduled to begin over the next month. In June, C.W. Roberts won the contract with a low bid of $681,222. A DOT grant will fund $646,578 of the work. Resurfacing was delayed until several landown ers, including a new RV park under construction on U.S. 98, could connect to city water and sewer. Pierce said he believed the resurfacing will be gin in the next two weeks. “Someone be sure to call and make sure all of the cuts have been completed before we resurface the road,” Commissioner Noah Lockley said. — By LOIS SWOBODA HOWArR D N N ABO rR S Public Works director

Lashley, 29, Carrabelle, petit theft (FCSO) 1 charged after trying to capture alligator Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation ofcers charged a man earlier this month with trying to take an American alligator. During the rst week of August, Ofcer Gore was working an area in Franklin County where he had received information about a large alligator being spotted. While conducting surveillance, he noticed two white males on a small vessel enter the area and recognized one of the individuals. Gore had issued him prior warnings for attempting to take deer and migratory birds out of season. The two suspects spotted the alligator and started following it with the boat. While following, one subject took a rope with a large treble hook and started trying to snag the alligator. He made several attempts for about 15 minutes, but was unsuccessful in hooking the alligator. When the subjects started to leave, Gore conducted a vessel stop. During the stop, one subject cut the treble hook from the rope trying to conceal it but was unsuccessful. During the course of the investigation, the subjects admitted to trying to kill the alligator. Statements were taken and one subject was charged with attempting to take an American alligator. Ofcers Gore and Allen were working early morning hours in Apalachicola Bay because of complaints they had received about night oystering. During the course of their patrol, they were able to locate two different vessels actively harvesting shellsh before sunrise. Both vessels were stopped and escorted back to the boat ramp. At the ramp, three individuals were cited for harvesting oysters between sunset and sunrise. Both operators were also cited for operating a vessel without navigational lights and an insufcient number of personal otation devices (life jackets). They were given warnings for no marine sanitation devices, no re extinguishers and no Apalachicola Bay Permits displayed on a vessel.

The couple has two sons, Robert and Daniel Benson, and three daughters, Connie Chase, Louise Benson and Patty Wright; six grandchildren; and one great-grandson.

The ofce is on Fifth Street right behind Two Gulls. The ofce is open on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. You can call 653-8057 to schedule an appointment. Sorry I can’t be of more help. Well, it’s about here! The third weekend each month is always lled with lots of food, lots of friends and neighbors and music, music, music. Saturday morning at the Lanark Village Boat Club, you can get a great full breakfast from 9 to 11 a.m. A donation of $5 will be collected inside the door. Enjoy!

Caregiver support group begins Tuesday When we hear the words caregiver or Alzheimer’s in Franklin County, one agency comes to mind and that would be Alzheimer’s Project, Inc. from Tallahassee. Alzheimer’s Project, Inc. has been in the county for three years, providing support groups with concurrent respite. In its effort to reach out to the rural communities, Alzheimer’s Project, Inc. will make caregiving easier in the Franklin County area by providing a support group for any and all persons who are caregivers. This support group, provided at no cost to the families, will take place at Trinity Episcopal Church in Benedict Hall, 79 Sixth Street. The meetings will be held the third Tuesday of each month, beginning at 10 a.m. Aug. 20. Caregivers can come and bring their loved ones with them, and while they attend the support group, their loved ones will go to another area for stimulating activities they will enjoy. The support group empowers caregivers with knowledge and information through fellowship and sharing of life experiences/ challenges with likeminded individuals who are caring for a loved one. A time to share laughs and tears, joys and concerns. You will receive a blessing just being with people who understand and want to share. This is a communitywide effort and we would like to enlist all persons who are caregivers/caregiving. Alzheimer’s Project, Inc., a non-prot organization, would like to extend a warm supportive welcome to all caregivers.

Attorney Ben Watkins dies at 88 BEN WAtk TK IN sS By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com Once again, the First Pentecostal Holiness Church put on a vacation Bible school that is second to none. Last week, a record reg istration, 248 young people from throughout the county, enjoyed a VBS with the theme of “Kingdom Rock: Where Kids Stand Strong for God.” Terry Tipton, the church’s Christian educa tion director, has overseen the event since 2001 and said this year was among the best ever. “It went very well, it was a great year,” said Tipton, who was helped by Mi chelle Chambers, the VBS assistant director, and 56 volunteers. Rex and Jamie Penny cuff, the children’s church pastors, dressed up in cos tume to bring to life the Bible stories, which all fo cused on standing strong. On Monday, the Bible point was God’s love helps us stand strong, bolstered by the verse “I love you, Lord; you are my strength.” (Psalm 18:1), and the story of David writing about God’s love in Psalm 23. On Tuesday, the Bible point was family and friends help us stand strong, found ed on the verse “So encour age each other and build each other up” (1 Thessalo nians 5:11) and the story of how Mordecai encourages Esther to do the right thing. (Esther 1–9). On Wednesday, when total attendance swelled to 315, the Bible point was how prayer helps us stand strong, supported by the verse “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything” (Philippi ans 4:6) and the story of how Nehemiah perseveres to re build the wall around Jeru salem. (Nehemiah 1–6). That night the young people focused on missions during offering time, and raised $800 for Operation Christmas Child, that will provide a small gift and basic necessities for under privileged children. On Thursday, the Bible point was that trusting God helps us stand strong, and it was boosted by the verse “Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock” (Isaiah 26:4) and the story of how Jesus dies and comes back to life. (Luke 22:39–24:12) Also addressed that day was how the Bible helps us stand strong, founded on the verse “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 119:105) and the story of how King Josiah follows God’s way. (2 Kings 22:1–23:23). On Friday, in the fellow ship hall highlighted by a set and hand painted logo by lead artist Ola Jean Silva, the kids danced and sang and cheered all that they had learned all week. Wyatt Abercrombie per formed on guitar the origi nal song that had earned him a standing ovation and grand prize at the “VBS Got Talent” completion.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Florida Park Service has updated its Pocket Ranger app for smartphones to include every public beach access point in Florida, in addition to information about its 171 state parks, and trails. Those who have downloaded Pocket Ranger for state park information now have access to locations and amenities about every public beach access point in Florida. More than 2,000 public coastal access sites are included in the coastal section. Divided into three regions – Panhandle, Atlantic coast and southwest Florida coast – the app provides useful information to help plan trips to the beach. “More than 70,000 people have downloaded the Florida Pocket Ranger mobile app for their IPhone or Android phones,” said Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione, “We are pleased to offer them additional information about beaches where they may enjoy Florida’s famous sunshine and natural resources.” The app provides a comprehensive list of beach access points in each county, and the amenities each access point offers, including boardwalks, parking spaces, restrooms, picnic pavilions and boat ramps. Each section features an overview of each of the region’s coastal counties and includes a list of state parks, coastal cities, rivers, paddling trails and other points of interest. One of DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr.’s priorities for the department is increasing access to state parks and trails for Floridians and visitors. The app allows visitors to plan that perfect outdoor trip by searching for a park or beach by GPS location or activity to find nearby locations to enjoy hiking, camping, boating, birding and more. Once there, advanced GPS and GIS mapping technology allows visitors to track and record trails, mark waypoints and locate friends in the area. There is even an option to cache GPS maps in advance to ensure that navigation remains possible in the event of lost mobile reception. The app also translates Florida’s beach flag colors and provides a “Good to Know” button that links to NOAA’s surf zone forecast and rip current info and the department’s hurricane info page. The app also links to a weather site; all good things to know if you’re headed to the beach. The app also provides information on the department’s coastal management program and NOAA’s marine debris program. The apps provide plenty of other features to maximize visitors’ outdoor adventure including educational information, amenities, maps and directions, aeal-time calendar of events, a potentially life-saving alert feature, a Friend Finder and a builtin compass. The Florida State Parks Pocket Ranger app is available on iTunes and Android Market by searching “Official Florida State Parks” and is identified under ParksByNature Network. It is also available on PocketRanger. com and is formatted as a mobile website: http:// fl.pocketranger.com. The Florida Park Service partnered with ParksByNature Network and PocketRanger.com to create this free app free. For a tutorial on how to use the app, please visit www.pocketranger.com. It is recommended to use Wi-Fi or a strong wireless connection when downloading the app. Monda y T hursda y 6:30A M 7PM (EST ) F rida y S a tur da y & S unda y 6:30A M 8PM (EST ) BWO Sca l l op H e a dq u a r ters : By VALERIE GARMAN The News Herald PANAMA CITY — Red snapper has been a hot topic this year for the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council. The council held a public meeting in Panama City Aug. 7 to gather comments on an amendment to the current shery management plan that would give states more authority in managing the species in federal waters, which begin nine miles offshore. A crowd of about 25 turned out to discuss a proposed regional management plan, which would allow the ve Gulf states to set their own bag limits and seasons by dividing the total recreational snapper quota. “The states have asked for this,” said anthropologist Ava Lasseter, who presented a series of actions the council will consider under the amendment. “This allows the states to have those separate regulations for different parts of the Gulf, because the Gulf is not homogenous — you’ve got different tourist seasons, different weather, different parts.” Seasons and bag limits in federal waters are currently set by the National Marine Fisheries Service as outlined in the Magnuson-Stevens Act, the law governing shery management in the U.S. Mike Eller, captain of the Destin charter boat “Lady Em”, expressed concern with the uncertain long-term outcome of moving to regional management, questioning whether Florida would be prepared to take it on. “Regional management is a very, very slippery slope,” Eller said. “I can see where regional management could have some bene ts and I could see where it could turn into a major asco.” Ellis said Florida shery managers should rst look into better data collection for snapper stock. “We think the state can make a big difference when it comes to data collection,” Ellis said. “If we don’t do that rst, we’re putting the cart before the horse and we’re really not doing any good.” The regional management plan also would eliminate a rule that requires for-hire boats holding federal reef sh permits to always comply with often stricter federal regulations — regardless of state rules. “Regardless of whether we do regional management or not, I would still recommend getting rid of that provision,” said Panama City charter Capt. Bob Zales. “That needs to be taken out and it needs to be done before the 2014 season.” Carrabelle commercial angler Jim Clements attended the meeting to ensure the council didn’t try to change the individual shing quota (IFQ) program that is currently in place for the Gulf commercial snapper shery. Clements, who has been in the commercial shing industry for 17 years, said the IFQ system is working and needs to stay how it is. “If they do regional management in the recreational sector, they could look at doing it in the commercial sector,” Clements said. “I support this if it’ll get the recreational sector more days shing. They need something different to help them out.” However, the change would not necessarily result in more shing days for anglers because snapper will remain a federally managed species. Council members will further discuss the proposal at a meeting in San Antonio Aug. 26-30 and nal action for the amendment will be on the agenda. However, of cials said they will likely push back nal action until the October meeting in New Orleans. Both beautiful and fragrant, the plumeria is beloved by people around the world. The plumeria, also known as frangipani, are owering plants in the dogbane family native to South and Central America and the Caribbean. Plumeria will grow vigorously and bloom regularly and profusely when they receive at least six hours of sun per day and an ample amount of the proper fertilizers. They must be planted in highly organic fast-draining soil or in beds with adequate drainage. Plumeria can be grown as container plants here. The pot may be sunk in the ground to give the effect of a landscape plant or placed in an indoor or outdoor grouping. During the winter, plumeria require very little care. When temperatures drop below 50 degrees at night, bring the plant inside and remove the leaves. Store in a cool dry place and do not water more than once a month. Don’t allow temperatures to fall below freezing in the storage area. Propagate plumeria from cuttings of lea ess stem tips in spring. Allow the cutting to dry at the base before planting in well-drained soil Plumeria is named in honor of the 17th-century French botanist Charles Plumier, who traveled to the New World documenting many plant and animal species. Plumeria is related to the oleander and the sap of both shrubs is mildly toxic. Contact with the sap may irritate eyes and skin. In traditional Indian medicine, some plumeria species are considered purgatives or remedies for diarrhea and to treat in ammation, rheumatism, tumors and gonorrhea. Extracts of plumeria are also used in perfumes and incense. Indian incenses containing plumeria have “Champa” in their name. Hawaiians use the fragrant owers to make leis and plumeria are considered a symbol of everything good. In Malay folklore, the scent of the plumeria is associated with vampires. There, frangipani trees are often planted in cemeteries. Plumeria is also planted in cemeteries in Indonesia and the Philippines where it is associated with ghosts and spirits. Plumeria are associated with temples in both Hindu and Buddhist cultures. For Hindus the plant symbolized devotion and dedication; for Buddhists it is the symbol of immortality. In the Victorian language of owers, plumeria symbolizes beauty, charm, and grace. In Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, Hawaii and New Zealand, women wear plumeria to indicate their relationship status. Women seeking mates tuck the ower over the right ear and those who have a lover wear it over the left. Plumeria is the national ower of both Nicaragua and Laos.

Caleb Carmichael, 29, set a blistering pace in the hot weather as he breezed to victory in the 16th annual St. George Island Sizzler 5K Race. Carmichael, who last ran the Sizzler in 2004, and won it, while still an undergraduate at UWF, averaged a 5:14 mile as he nished the 5K in 16:16, nearly a minute ahead of 19-year-old Crawfordville runner Stanley Linton, who ran a 17:25. “For a day like today, I never expect to run really well,” said Carmichael. “But for a hot day and humid, it was good.” Carmichael, who coaches the Div. II cross country team at UWF, shaved 24 seconds off the 16:40 time he posted to win the Sizzler in 2004. These days he runs 60 to 70 miles a week, 13 to 14 miles on a long day, many of those miles alongside the Argonaut runners he coaches in Pensacola. “I try to make an example,” he said. “I’m able to tell people how to do it and show them how to do it. Running with the college kids keeps me young.” Carmichael, now married with a 6-year-old daughter and a 4-yearold son, set the pace from start to nish, knowing that he could ease off at the end in the August heat. Race organizer Hobson Fulmer said he was impressed by the strong showing of the eld, which comprised a record-breaking 318 nishers. “Despite the heat these were very fast times,” said Hobson. “It went very well.” Another 32 runners took part in the One-Mile Fun Run, which was won by 9-year-old David John Miller, of Tallahassee in 7:19. This year’s race also set a rst by using embedded chips in each of the race bib numbers. The Gulf Winds Track Club, which made the race another Grand Prix event, handled the electronic timing. Fulmer said the electronics at the nish line would automatically record the time off the chips, and that there was also a camera set up as a backup plan. About 60 volunteers, each sporting purple staff shirts, handled everything from giving out waters to pointing out directions to the runners, to serving up the lo country boil at Lighthouse Park following the race. Representatives from the county humane society, which will bene t from the race proceeds, were on hand to show off adoptable pets to the large crowd. Carmichael, who said he especially appreciated the unique handmade design of the race’s awards, made it a long weekend for his family, as he relaxed before beginning practice at UWF on Monday. A 2002 graduate of Florida High in Tallahassee, he said he’s looking forward to this year’s season, which will include his team taking part in the Florida State University Relays in March, which will showcase some of the best high school and college runners throughout the Southeast. Carmichael is also working on bettering his best times for the 5K, which included a 15:22 this past spring and a 15:54 last week. Track coach returns to take Sizzler Weems to offer free physicals Weems Memorial Hospital will be offering free physicals Monday through Thursday, Aug. 26-29.

WIC staff and volunteers will provide fun prizes and refreshments along with information about nutrition and breastfeeding for WIC participants. This years World Breastfeeding Week theme, Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers, highlights the importance of providing support to breastfeeding families. The WIC program plays a vital role in providing support to breastfeeding moms. The WIC program offers a breastfeeding friendly environment with support from trained breastfeeding peer counselors. Deciding what and how to feed an infant is one of the most important decisions that new families make. Evidence is clear that breastfeeding is the ideal way to feed an infant. Research shows that infants who are not exclusively breastfed for their rst six months of life are more likely to develop a wide range of chronic and acute diseases, including ear infections, diarrheal diseases, asthma, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, obesity and respiratory illnesses. Mothers also benet from breastfeeding with a decreased risk for breast and ovarian cancers. World Breastfeeding Week is coordinated globally by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA).

Local The Times | A15 Thursday, August 15, 2013 “Everybody had a wonderful time and was impressed with how many historic re sources still exist here and how much that contributes to identity of the town,” Peery said. “It doesn’t look like Anytown, USA. It is distinctly old Florida with a maritime orientation. “We use the term historic, but we’re re ally talking heritage,” she said. “The Gibson Inn is a good example of a historic building that is still being used in the original way, but other structures that would have been use ful in those early days have been adapted to a new uses, and remain. A good example of this is Robert Lindsley’s gallery.” The Apalachicola Area Historical Soci ety and Apalachicola held a reception at the Robert Lindsley Studio Gallery on Avenue E gallery to welcome the distinguished pres ervations to the area. Lindsley donated the use of his building; prominent local citizens mingled with the distinguished visitors. Lynn and Bill Spohrer, responsible for an impressive amount of local preservation, traded war stories with the visiting preser vationists. Historical Society President Tom Daly and local historians Mark Curenton, De lores Roux and Frank Cook were on hand to provide background and answer questions. Even Shannon Hartseld, president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers’ Associa tion, commented on the condition of the bay while shucking and serving local oysters. The Trust’s business meeting took place at Trinity Episcopal Church, also a donated venue. President Rick Gonzalez, who began his two-year term in May, urged Apalachicola residents to preserve what he called “a spe cial and unique place.” “I think Apalachicola is great,” he said. “The arrival over the bridge is phenomenal. It is a beautiful small town that hasn’t been businessied. There are bumps in the side walks and plants growing on the walls of the buildings. Don’t let go of that. Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.” Mark Tarmey, treasurer of the Trust is a frequent visitor to Apalachicola. He praised actions that have been taken to preserve the city’s historic character. “The city commission took historic de sign guidelines and made it an ordinance,” Tarmey said. “That’s important, but it’s not just the buildings that make it special; it’s the people and the whole sense of place. In Apalachicola, you have a brand that’s known all over the country, a brand that is nationally understood. The next step could be to develop the whole waterfront as a park that acts as a ood control device.” Peery said 13 of the 16 members of the Trust chose to stay overnight on Saturday and spend an extra day here. The preserva tionists brought along 11 family members to experience Apalachicola. Trust members stayed at the Gibson Inn, High Cotton Marketplace, Water Street Hotel and the Coombs House Inn. Peery said participants in the retreat paid their own travel expenses and dined at many local restaurants. “It was a terric weekend from all of us getting work done, to meeting people within your community who have same passion for historic preservation we do,” Peery said.

BEVIS, LETITIA B. BEVIS, ST. JAMES BAY PROPERTY OWNERS’ ASSOCIATION, Defendants. NOTICE OF SALE Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Final Judgment of Foreclosure for Plaintiff entered in this cause on July 16, 2013, in the Circuit Court of Franklin County, Florida, I will sell the property situated in Franklin County, Florida described as: LOT 2, BLOCK “O” OF ST. JAMES BAY SUBDIVISION, ACCORDING TO THE PLAT THEREOF AS RESCANDAL from page A1 Rauscher expressed concerns about being able to thoroughly sift through the evidence against the bankers, which she ex pected to be voluminous due to the length of the investigation. She also anticipated that witnesses in the case would have dif culties with their travel and lodging accom modations if the trial is held during Spring Break. Littleton pushed for the earlier trial date, arguing the April date falls during the heavi est period of Spring Break and there would be fewer spring breakers here in late Febru ary. The government, she said, is ready to try the case. “To push this case to April is not neces sary and would cause this case to linger,” she said. Allegations Dubose was a director and chief execu tive ofcer for Coastal Community Hold ings, which controlled Panama City Beachbased Coastal Community Bank, which in cluded the former Apalachicola State Bank in Franklin County, and Port St. Joe-based Bayside Savings Bank. He also was its sec ond largest shareholder. West was chief nancial ofcer and Bak er, Coastal’s largest shareholder, was a di rector and an attorney. The men put up their banks as collat eral when they borrowed $3 million in 2007. A year later, the borrower was pressuring them to pay up when they conspired to de fraud a Federal Deposit Insurance Corpora tion (FDIC) program designed to help banks get loans, federal prosecutors charge. The FDIC was guaranteeing loans be tween banks provided the loans were not secured by collateral. The men falsely as sured the FDIC that they had not put up col lateral on the rst loan to secure a second FDIC-guaranteed loan from CenterState Bank, which they then used to repay the ini tial loan and save their stock in the banks, the indictment says. The FDIC took over Bayside Savings and Coastal Community in July 2010, and CenterState led a claim for the FDIC to pay the $3.8 million they were owed, which the FDIC did. Each of the men is charged with conspir acy to commit wire fraud against the FDIC and seven counts of wire fraud — the counts are each punishable by up to 30 years in prison — as well as three counts of making false statements to the FDIC and one count of aiding and abetting a false claim, each of which are punishable by up to ve years in prison. “We deny the charges,” Rauscher said. Dubose’s attorney declined further com ment, citing court rules that prohibit attor neys from commenting publicly about pend ing cases. INMATES from page A1 “You have four-man squads, that van can transport 14. We can make one trip across the river. It doesn’t require four dif ferent groups of staff to come pick the inmates up. “I know there’s going to be some missteps,” he said. “I would ask that you call that warden right there. I think he’ll bend over backwards to see you continue to get the services.” Culpepper said that he had been warned that visiting the Apalachicola city commission would be “like pouring salt in an open wound” but he took a different view. “I’m not into what side of the river we’re on. I’m trying to work with everybody,” he said. “Our community partner ship with Bay City Work Camp goes back to 1989,” he said. “A lot of careers were built there and it provided a lot of assets to this community, and provided a lot of dollars for this town. The fact of the matter is it outlived itself.” Culpepper said relocation to FCI Work Camp “is a logical thing for us to do” and will save millions of dollars. “I can’t even tell you how many times we’ve had to evac uate that work camp,” he said. “Each year the wind load capa bility goes lower and there’s a lot of concern about the physi cal plant. It’s in a low-lying area. “The good news is, unless they make a conscious decision to do so, nobody loses their job,” Culpepper said. “I can’t do any thing about the loss the city is going to sustain. I can’t do any thing about that.” Apalachicola is expected to see a loss of about $150,000 in water and sewer revenue next year as a result of the closure. At a breakfast hosted by FCI on Aug. 8, Culpepper said the relocation would not only preserve jobs, but add an ad ditional 13 staff members, and an additional $425,000 salary dollars per year into the com munity. “It hasn’t come without scrapes and bruises along the way,” he said. “Some people aren’t happy.” In his remarks to the break fast, Atkins outlined how re locating medium security in mates from the main unit to the work camp will have an effect on the amount of smuggling by work crews of contraband, everything from cell phones to marijuana to tobacco, into the prison. He said much of this smuggling is done by work camp crews who are pressured by close custody inmates in the prison, who are there for life. “These are very dangerous inmates that are in our prison right now, gang members and regular strongarmers,” he said. In contrast, inmates as signed to work camps have less than 10 years left on their sen tences, and are far less danger ous. “They have a little more to lose,” said Atkins. Culpepper said DOC was prompted to make the move in order to reduce a current $43 million decit. “The folks who work for DOC, we pay taxes too and we like to see our tax mon ey used wisely too,” he said. “We had two work camps that closed that required people to move 100 miles away to nd jobs.” HERITAGE from page A1 SH aA RE YOUR THOUGHT sS a A BOUT CH aA PM aA N S cC HOOL Kara Litvinas, a candidate for a master’s degree at the University of Florida, is asking residents and business owners of Franklin County to participate in a 20-minute survey assessing their thoughts and feelings about the community and the Chapman School.

According to their online mission statement, the Trust advocates for legislation and funding in support of historic preservation on behalf of Floridas many historic sites, museums and parks and promotes the preservation of the architectural, historical and archaeological heritage of Florida through advocacy, education and historic property stewardship. Recently, the Trust named Chapman Auditorium as one of the 11 most endangered historic structures in Florida. Anne Peery, executive director of the Trust, said although the visitors did not tour the city as a group, every attendee toured on their own by car, bicycle or on foot. Lorrie Muldowney, secretary of the Trust was struck by the contrast between her home in Sarasota and Apalachicola There is a different level of activity here, she said. It was interesting and fun to visit. Peery said many on the retreat, especially those from South Florida, were visiting Apalachicola for the rst time.Preservationists praise Apalachicolas historic heritageBy DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin County students wont be the only ones returning to new rooms on Monday. Sam Culpepper, director of the Florida Department of Corrections Region 1, told Apalachicola city commissioners Aug. 6 the cross-county relocation of about 282 inmates from Apalachicolas Bay City Work Camp to the new work camp at Franklin Correctional Institution in Carrabelle would be conducted Monday. We understand thats the rst day of schools, he said. We wont roll out the buses until 10 a.m. that morning. We want to make this transition as easy as we possibly can. Culpepper said he expected the intake process to be complete by Wednesday, at which time the work crew would resume. We hope you understand that all of those inmates have to be reentered into a database, he said. We hope by Wednesday we can start relocating those inmates back into the community to start work. Culpepper, who was accompanied by about 10 DOC of cials, including FCI Warden Christopher Atkins, stressed that he did not foresee any cutbacks in inmate squads. My commitment to you is I dont anticipate any disruption of inmate services that we provide to the city of Apalachicola, he said. He said that transportation of inmates, which is handled by the cities and counties and not by DOC, should not be an obstacle to continuation of inmate work squads. One non-DOC supervisor can transport up to 14 inmates by himself in a van. He doesnt require a CDL (commercial drivers license), Culpepper said.

Water!Hundreds rally to save Apalach Bay By CHRIS OLWELL747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Three leaders of a pair of failed banks pleaded not guilty in federal court Aug. 8 to a 12-count indictment alleging they conspired to bilk the government out of nearly $4 million. Attorneys for Terry Dubose, Elwood West and Frank Baker did the talking during their rst court appearance since they were indicted last month. Magistrate Larry Bodiford set their bonds at $25,000 each and outlined the conditions of their pretrial supervision: no guns, drugs or excessive alcohol use; no law violations; no travel outside the Northern District of Florida without written permission; no passports; and no contact between the alleged conspirators except to discuss legal strategies with their attorneys present. Investigators worked for two years to build the case against Dubose, West and Baker, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Gayle Littleton, who will prosecute the case. She described the allegations against them as a pretty simple fraud scheme. The men waived their right to a speedy trial. Bodiford set the case for trial in February, despite a push by Claire Rauscher, an attorney representing Dubose, to schedule it for April.

LocalA2 | The Times Thursday, August 15, 2013 Nelson, a Democrat, and Rubio, the Republican junior senator, sat side by side before a packed audience in the courthouse annex as they conducted a rare Senate subcommittee eld hearing on the adverse effects that diminished river ows have had on the oyster industry in Apalachicola Bay. The buzz that followed the twohour hearing in which both the Army Corps of Engineers water management policies and the ever-increasing water consumption by users upriver drew a hefty share of harsh criticism was still in the air at lunchtime when Scott announced at the riverfront that Florida plans to le suit next month in the U.S. Supreme Court to halt Georgias unchecked and growing consumption of water. Scott, anked by Rubio and Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Panama City), said negotiations with Georgia ofcials have proved fruitless. Georgia has not negotiated in good faith. Theyve kept our water, he said. Its been going on for decades. Now its coming to a stop. The governor said Alabama has yet to decide whether to join the suit, which seeks injunctive relief against what he called Georgias unmitigated and unsustainable upstream consumption of water from the Chattahoochee and Flint River Basins. This lawsuit will be targeted toward one thing: ghting for the future of Apalachicola. This is a bold, historic legal action for our state, Scott said. But this is our only way forward after 20 years of failed negotiations with Georgia. We must ght for the people of this region. The economic future of Apalachicola Bay and Northwest Florida is at stake. Nelson, who was visiting the Three Servicemen Statue Detail at the time of Scotts announcement, applauded the suit. Its not only that water is being held back from the Chattahoochee, the state of Georgia has no regulations controlling the ow of water in the Flint River basin, he said. Florida has had water regulations in place since 1972. A farmer on the state line must get permission to drill a well in Florida, but he can cross the state line into Georgia and drill as many wells as he wants.Blasting the CorpsIn assuming the lead role at the hearing, part of a subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, Nelson blasted the Corps persistence stance that it can only consider congressionally authorized purposes, such as ood control, navigation, energy and environmental impact, when it allocates water. Its about following the law, and thats what we have to do, said Col. Jon Chytka, the newly appointed commander of the Corps Mobile District, which administers the ve federal, and 10 non-federal, reservoirs in the Apalachicola Chattahoochee Flint basin. He said the Environmental Impact Statement, which will address the effect on three endangered mussels and the Gulf sturgeon, wont be completed until early 2016. The reason we dont think we can expedite it is the technical complexities, Chytka said. Anything that needs to be expedited can be expedited, Nelson said. Youre at a disadvantage here, just 13 days on the job. I want you to know I have talked to the generals not only at the Atlanta ofce but also all the way up to the commanding general of the Corps. I want to know why did they send you? Why didnt they send the generals Ive been talking to? This is the kind of stuff weve been hearing for years as weve been trying to solve this problem, the senator said. I want the Corps at the Mobile level to understand how serious this matter is. This is a dire situation that has been going on for years, and it still hasnt been able to be resolved. In this middle portion of the hearing, the senators also heard a report on the shery disaster declaration from Emily Menashes, acting director of the National Marine Fisheries Services Ofce of Sustainable Fisheries. She said a combination of drought, reduced ows downriver and increased salinities in the Apalachicola Bay estuary contributed to the shery failure, and it would now be up to Congress to decide whether to appropriate funds to mitigate those damages. We generally work with the state and affected communities to identify resources they would need, Menashes said, noting direct revenue impacts, as well as social and economic impacts, may be factored in. She said funds could be allocated for direct assistance to the industry, as well as such things as oyster reef restoration, research, monitoring and economic development. Its a very broad set of activities that could be funded, Menashes said. Like his colleagues, Rubio said he planned to support a congressional appropriation but cautioned not to lose sight of the long-term issue. I think its fantastic we could nd funding for people who are suffering, he said. Thats going to help people who are hurting to survive, but to sustain themselves, this water issue has to be solve. Its not enough, we cant stop here, he said. I dont want a lot of solution on the front end and forgetting that we still have this water issue. This doesnt necessarily solve that. Nelson said additional BP money could also help the industry. Well be looking at every possible source of funding, he said. Perhaps once the judge in federal court in New Orleans decides on the ne and the money starts to ow through the Restore Act, perhaps that would be another source of funding.Taking on GeorgiaAlso on that panel was Jon Steverson, executive director of the Northwest Florida Water Management District, who outlined steps that the city and state have taken to maximize and conserve freshwater ow into the state. But, he stressed, Florida cannot control the volume of water entering the state. He said Georgia now controls more than 90 percent of the water withdrawn from the ACF system, and the metro Atlanta area uses three times the water for public supply than all 16 counties and municipalities of the Florida Panhandle combined. The good Lord giveth, and the Corps and Georgia taketh away, Steverson said. At a minimum, the Corps should mandate that Georgia develop strict conservation measures as a condition to entertaining any further withdrawals from the ACF system, he said, stressing that the Corps current efforts to revise their draft water control plan offers a chance to restructure the priority system they use in existing operations to assign greater weight to downstream needs and strive to mimic historic ow patterns. The hearing opened with an appearance by Southerland, who provided background on the legislative progress for the past two years regarding securing more water for the oyster shery. After reading his prepared statement, he offered some personal remarks. This is not just about oysters, this is about people, he said. We are not just growing oysters here. We have the responsibility for growing families. This is affecting families; it has affected children. It is imperative we nd the funding to do the responsible thing, Southerland said. Its time for Florida to get its fair shake. The hearing closed with an appearance by three representatives of the local community, Dan Tonsmeire, executive director of the Apalachicola RiverKeeper, Shannon Hartseld, president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association, and Dr. Karl Havens, a professor of food and agricultural sciences at the University of Florida, who has been working closely with an oyster recovery task force formed after the BP oil spill. Theres never been a period as low as in the last two years, Havens said. The river fell below the historical record; it was unprecedented. He said rebuilding 1,000 acres of the bays substrate with oyster shells could reduce the decade it will take to recover down to two or three years. We dont see any hope in the near future, Hartseld said. We dont have six more months; we dont have that. We need to open that river back up and get us some ow down here. Hartseld yielded the remainder of his time to Ricky Banks, the vice president of the seafood workers association, who spoke eloquently of the oystermens plight. In Atlanta, theyre going to keep having babies. Theyre going to keep needing more and more water, he said. Let Atlanta stop watering their grass a little bit. What we have here is a system being run by man that was created by God, he said. When man steps in, he has a way of messing things up. Man made this disaster, man can x this disaster. Man needs to do his job.

Cal Allen Incumbent Cal Allen has served on the Franklin County Tourist Development Council, the Apalachee Regional Planning Commission and as liaison to Franklin County Emergency Management for the city. Allen said he wants a good, open, honest and fair campaign. In a July 19 interview, he said, Im looking forward to this. We have a lot of interesting things going on right now. Experience has given me the voices of reason and judgment to see things from other peoples point of view. He said his status as a retiree gives him the time needed to ful ll the duties of a city council member. Allen expressed optimism on the topic of repaying Carrabelles construction debt for updating the water and sewer system. I feel like were making real progress. There will be an increase in rates but not as much as we were thinking. I believe we will come out debt-free sooner rather than later, said Allen. If reelected, Allen plans to work with the county to obtain RESTORE funds and be sure that Carrabelle receives its fair share of the BP settlement. This is important, said Allen. We have a lot of good we can do with that money in Carrabelle if we can come to an agreement. I would love to see some movement on that. Among the pet projects, Allen envisions tackling, if funding becomes available, are restoration of the Gulfside wetland known as the Frog Pond as part of a stormwater drainage system and getting as many Carrabelle homes as possible on city water and sewer to eliminate the use of septic tanks. Mandatory trash pick-up would be nice if we could enforce it but we have too many people who cant afford it, he said. Allen said he also hopes to see Carrabelle become a regional provider of water in keeping with the suggestion of the Northwest Florida Water Management District. That would cut operational costs for everyone, he said. Research by the county has shown the city is in the best position to do that. He foresees a future where the city economy is rmly based in tourism with some commercial seafood harvesting. Allen also hopes to see manufacturing in Carrabelle. As far as providing jobs, we have to create a climate friendly to business and entrepreneurship, he said. Allen invites voters with questions to contact him at 524-1124 or calallen2@yahoo.com.Brenda La PazAs your current city commissioner I thank you for allowing me the honor of being your public servant the past two years. During that time I have always informed and involved the public in ongoing city business. I have met weekly with constituents in order to obtain citizen input and to better meet our citizens needs. I have attended every commission meeting since elected and demonstrated integrity on all levels. I always represent Carrabelle in a proud and professional manner and have proven myself to be an honest, fair, hardworking, transparent, and dependable leader. During my initial term I diligently researched many of the Florida statutes, city charter, and code of ordinances, all of which the commission needs to comply with so that best city business practices may be put into action. I research every item that comes before the commission and report on those items, which the public has a right to hear. I have always asked the dif cult questions and will continue to encourage public discussion. I participate in Economic Diversi cation Summits where community leaders work together to bring new businesses and jobs to our area and to nd ways to support existing businesses. I provide input to Carrabelles EDC forum on topics such as new industries and mobile broadband service. I have attended numerous meetings with business owners interested in relocating their business to the Hexaport Building. I work closely with Carrabelles engineering and nancial consultants. I attend workshops and lectures to learn about water and sewer matters, emergency management, public health concerns, storm water and watershed issues, and traf c safety. These ongoing activities help me to better represent you as a city commissioner and as a member of the countys RESTORE Act Council. During last years budget workshops, I strongly opposed the proposed 9.27 millage rate and insisted on a lower rate of 8.75. After hard decisions on cutbacks, a rate of 8.77 was unanimously approved. I will continue working hard to keep city property taxes lowered. At my suggestion, reuse-water irrigation lines will be installed with the expanded landscaping project along US 98E to 30A, saving the city thousands of dollars. Plans now include reuse water line extensions to the cemeteries and nearby parks. With determination and weeks of research I was able to sort out the very complicated sewer plant expansion loan/grant program. I have met and worked with legislative aides and DEP loan administrators and positioned the city to restructure the DEP loan which will now be more bene cial to the rate payers and demonstrate long-term nancial responsibility. My current projects include jumpstarting the revitalization of Carrabelles commercial district by advocating for public CRA meetings and planning, continued efforts to clean up garbage dump sites which cause health and environmental concerns, and completion of the 12th Street public recreational shing pier. I am dedicated and work full-time to effectively get things done on behalf of every Carrabelle citizen.Franklin DanielsFranklin Daniels announced his candidacy on April 19. He retired from Carrabelles water and sewer department in 2012. I worked for the city of Carrabelle for 30something years until I retired, he said. I want to run for the city commission to help the old people.Audrey O. MasseyAudrey Olivia Massey, 41, works for the Florida Department of Corrections. She is concerned for the most vulnerable segments of the community. I come from a political family, she said, I know what Carrabelle needs. Theres nothing for the kids and theres nothing for people to do that come to town. Id like to take the Carrabelle gym and get a grant to put something in here for kids. Wakulla just got a grant to build a YMCA. Id like to see a YMCA or a skating rink here. That would put some people to work too. Massey is also concerned about Carrabelles senior citizens. We used to see 100 people for lunch at the senior center, she said. Now we barely see a dozen. Massey said she appreciates the plight of people on xed incomes. I can promise the people of Carrabelle I will never vote for utility bills to go up, she said. Referring to the citys debt for its water treatment upgrade, she said, If the Department of Environmental Protection cant wait for their money, tell them to come and pull the pipes up out of the ground and take it back. I guarantee they dont want that. We need visitors and jobs, Massey said. We need to see money managed better. It was a waste of money to buy the Moore House when they could have spent the money on riverside property for commercial use. There is no longer anywhere on our waterfront to dock commercial boats. Its time to give somebody else a chance to see if they can get something done. Massey said she strongly supports the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum. Its a major priority of mine, she said. She supports mandatory trash pick-up but wants to see the city take over the operation rather than a private company. She also said she passionately wants to clean up Carrabelles roadsides and sees litter as a major issue. Addressing questions about her father, Mayor Curly Messer, she said, We hardly ever see eye-to-eye on anything. We probably debate more than the presidential candidates. She said accusations of nepotism are unfounded under the law and in reality. I have led all of my paperwork. I like fair politics, she said. I just want to run a clean election. Massey said she plans to recuse herself from any issues where there is a conict of interest including prison matters.Nikki Mock MillenderHello, I am Nikki Mock Millender and I am asking for your vote and support for Carrabelle city commissioner. I have lived in the city of Carrabelle all of my life. My husband Dusty and I are raising our three children here. I have worked with Franklin County for 11 years and currently serve as county parks and recreation director. Being a lifelong resident, working and raising a family in Carrabelle causes me to be concerned for the future of Carrabelle. The only promise that I will make is that I will listen to your interests and concerns and work with other commissioners to determine if the issue is in the citys best interest. I will be your voice and stand and ght for a better, more nancially sound Carrabelle. New revenue resources need to be found and I will seek out fresh ideas and possibilities for our town. I will work hard to bring events and activities for our teenagers. Our children need to be involved in positive events and this will be one of my main goals. I will look at our spending policies, and help develop procedures supported by all commissioners in open meetings that will ensure a balanced budget and reduction of nancial liabilities. I will do my best for Carrabelle citizens and our hometown. Thank you.

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, August 15, 2013 The landing at the top of the stairs was reserved for elected ofcials, and it too was packed to standing room only with commissioners from Franklin and surrounding counties, Apalachicolas mayor, and city commission members from both Apalachicola and Carrabelle, and members of the legislative delegation. As the faithful trickled in swelling the crowd, strains of country music, blues and reggae echoed across US 98. Many members of the throng waved handmade protest signs. About a dozen members of the press lmed the protest or snapped pictures of the scene. A dozen speakers kicked off with County Commissioner Smokey Parrish, who welcomed members of the Senate and the crowd on behalf of Apalachicola River and Bay. He called for change to, sustain our culture, heritage and history. He introduced State Senator Bill Montford (DBlountstown) who gave one of the most stirring speeches of the event. Right is right, and wrong is wrong, and what we have done to the Apalachicola River and Bay is wrong, he said, describing the bay as a God-given gift unique in the world. We want our fair share of water and a little more, he told a cheering crowd. Montford was followed by Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson who spoke eloquently on the destruction of the bay ecosystem. He said the people of the county have been forced to, helplessly watch the destruction of a resource capable of sustaining and providing employment. He criticized Atlantas unprincipled thirst brought on by a lack of planning and unbridled growth. The lack of action in Washington, including the Supreme Court, is more offensive than the withholding of water from our river, Johnson said. Next was a surprise visit from State Sen. Aaron Bean (R-Fernandina Beach), who is vacationing on St. George Island with 36 family members, including his brother Mason Bean. He said this is the 14th year for the Cool Beans family reunion. There is something special here thats worth ghting for. It is a humongous deal that the Senate would move their committee meeting to this little town, he said. I have to be a realist and tell you that this is just the rst step. People up north will hear about this and ask Whats the big deal? Bean urged the crowd to keep pushing and to post their demands on social media. Georgia will not roll over on this, he warned after the rally. He said he was invited to attend the hearing but,I gave my seat to somebody who has a family and makes a living on the bay. He has a stronger voice. Bean was followed by Carrabelle City Commissioner Cal Allen who reminded the crowd that a recent study from Florida State University showed 90 percent of gag grouper harvested in the Gulf begin life in the Apalachicola estuary. County Commissioner Pinki Jackel and Chad Taylor from the Riparian County Stakeholder coalition expressed solidarity, followed by County Commissioner Noah Lockley. Himself an oysterman, Lockley said, In the beginning, God made a perfect world. Now we must come together to get this xed. Were taking it all the way to Washington so they might as well get ready. The Rev. John Sink of Eastpoint spoke in the form of a prayer. God hears our prayers. We want our legislators to hear them too, he said.

LocalA6 | The Times Thursday, August 15, 2013 By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star.com Howard Nabors, Franklin Countys new public works superintendent, is already facing a number of challenges. Nabors told commissioners ooding was a problem in several areas of the county during heavy July rains. Commissioner Cheryl Sanders agreed with him and said, The city of Carrabelle was completely inundated. Carrabelles sewer system was temporarily overwhelmed by ooding on July 22, forcing the dismissal of The Nest childrens summer activity program and leading to an advisory not to use washing machines or toilets until oodwaters subsided. Sanders said ooding occurred between Putnal and Franklin streets and in front of the old Junior Food Store in Lanark Village; at the site of the sharp curve at site of the old Els Court Motel between Carrabelle and Lanark; and at Smokey Hollow on the eastern edge of Carrabelle. Nabors said Hog Wild Barbeque east of the Tillie Miller Bridge was completely ooded out. Commissioner William Massey, who is employed by Carrabelles public works department, said the restaurant ooded during the July 22 deluge. He told commissioners he installed a pump to help owner Ken La Paz, remove oodwater from the eatery and cleaned ditches in the area. He said Florida Department of Transportation (DOT) did not respond to a request for help in clearing the ditches on the state right of way. Nabors said there was also ooding at Gilbert and Third streets at U.S. 98 in Eastpoint. Sanders said undergrowth in the state rightof-way is creating a problem for the county. Weve got a problem, she said. We can clean out all of our ditches, but the state ditches need to be cleaned out. We need to contact the DOT and tell them the whole county needs to be done. Massey said the ditches east of Hog Wild are blocked up all the way to the river. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked why Transeld Services, the contractor charged with maintaining the state right-of-way, has not been cleaning along U.S. 98 in Franklin County this summer. Im not seeing Transeld in the county as much, she said. I dont know whats going on. Sanders said beginning in September 2012, Transeld only mows a 6foot strip along the state right-of-way twice a year, in March and December. In the past, the state mowed the shoulder completely several times a year. After a number of meetings with representatives of the Florida Wildower Foundation and the Panhandle Wildower Alliance in 2012, the DOT announced the policy of reduced mowing in Wakulla, Franklin and Gulf counties to protect native plants and migrating butteries. Wakulla since has increased the mowed area on roadsides to eight feet to improve roadside visibility. In June, when the change to the mowing schedule was explained to commissioners, both Sanders and 2012AnnualDrinkingWaterQualityReport LanarkVillageWater&SewerDistrict Wearepleasedto presenttoyouthisyearsAnnual WaterQualityReport.Thisreport isdesignedtoinformyouaboutthe qualitywaterandserviceswedeliver toyoueveryday.Ourconstantgoalis toinformyouaboutthequalitywater andserviceswedelivertoyouevery day.Ourconstantgoalistoprovide youwithasafeanddependable supplydrinkingwater.Wewantyou tounderstandtheeffortswemake tocontinuallyimprovethewater treatmentprocessandprotectour waterresources.Wearecommitted toensuringthequalityofyourwater.

LocalThe Times | A7Thursday, August 15, 2013 Commissioner Smokey Parrish expressed concerns about visibility and wildlife suddenly entering the roadway from the shoulders. On Aug. 6, commissioners instructed County Planner Alan Pierce to send a letter to DOT and Transeld requesting that ditches in the state right-of-way be cleaned countywide. Commissioner Noah Lockley said his district ooded between 24th and 25th streets, but the problem was a blocked culvert, not closed ditches. Nabors said county crews had cleaned out many ditches and replaced some old metal culverts and agreed DOT was not responsive to requests for help. He said the county has no oyster shell on hand to use for repairs, and he is uncertain when shell will be available. Nabors said the heavy rain has a lso caused a serious problem at Carlton Street in Lanark Village, which is currently closed because it might be unsafe. Pierce said for about 10 days, water has been heard running under the street. Theyre afraid that the road is being undermined, he said. We dont know what it is. It could be an old culvert we dont know about, an old U.S. Army pipe, a spring, it could be a sinkhole, it could be anything. Because of the sound, were afraid that the road might collapse. Nabors said an adjacent house has shifted on its foundation. He said the road must be cut to determine what is happening. Pierce said the former Lanark Village Water and Sewer has no pipes in the area. He said the area is underlain with limestone, so a sinkhole could form there.Job openingsNabors told commissioners at the Aug. 6 meeting that he has two job openings in his department. The commission voted unanimously to allow him to advertise for the positions. Jackel asked if the county public works crews would be at full capacity after the hires. Nabors said ve crews are working in the county now, and the two new employees would be alternate inmate crew supervisors. He said the county didnt have enough trucks and equipment to run more crews. Jackel suggested an additional crew could be added if another truck was purchased. Jackel asked if a foremans position already advertised had been lled. Nabors replied that Tommy Sadler was the best person for the job because he had worked with the road department for 25 years. He said he is waiting to see if Sadler can be recertied to supervise inmates after he was disciplined in May for using a county vehicle for personal business without authorization. I want to do the right thing and wait until its all said and done with Tommy, Nabors said. All this took place with the inmates before I took over. Ive heard ve or six things. Ive heard it was a load of dirt, then I heard it was a piece of bed iron he picked up off the side of the road.

At the Aug. 6 county meeting, County Planner Alan Pierce said Eastpoint Water and Sewer plans to cut Begonia Street where it meets U.S. 98. He said C.W. Roberts would do the work. Howard Nabors, who leads the countys road department, said one of the two water mains that runs under Begonia is no longer usable and will be capped. He said Begonia has already been cut at the same point to service one of the water lines. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked that the project be tabled until she could review the scope of work. Pierce told her EWS was informing the county of the project, not asking permission. He said it was possible the cut had already been made. Jackel asked if a county permit was needed, and Pierce said it was not because the cut will be within the state right-of-way and has been coordinated with the Florida Department of Transportation. Pierce said C.W. Roberts would repair the street to standard county specications. I have concerns, Jackel said. I dont want to stop it. Id just like to make sure theyre not cutting more than they need to. Patches are always a problem. In an act of good faith, they could at least get a hold of the commissioner for the district and talk to her about it, Chairman Cheryl Sanders said. Resurfacing of two miles of C.C. Land Road is also scheduled to begin over the next month. In June, C.W. Roberts won the contract with a low bid of $681,222. A DOT grant will fund $646,578 of the work. Resurfacing was delayed until several landowners, including a new RV park under construction on U.S. 98, could connect to city water and sewer. Pierce said he believed the resurfacing will begin in the next two weeks. Someone be sure to call and make sure all of the cuts have been completed before we resurface the road, Commissioner Noah Lockley said. By LOIS SWOBODA HOWArRD N NABOrRSPublic Works director

Lashley, 29, Carrabelle, petit theft (FCSO)1 charged after trying to capture alligatorFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation ofcers charged a man earlier this month with trying to take an American alligator. During the rst week of August, Ofcer Gore was working an area in Franklin County where he had received information about a large alligator being spotted. While conducting surveillance, he noticed two white males on a small vessel enter the area and recognized one of the individuals. Gore had issued him prior warnings for attempting to take deer and migratory birds out of season. The two suspects spotted the alligator and started following it with the boat. While following, one subject took a rope with a large treble hook and started trying to snag the alligator. He made several attempts for about 15 minutes, but was unsuccessful in hooking the alligator. When the subjects started to leave, Gore conducted a vessel stop. During the stop, one subject cut the treble hook from the rope trying to conceal it but was unsuccessful. During the course of the investigation, the subjects admitted to trying to kill the alligator. Statements were taken and one subject was charged with attempting to take an American alligator. Ofcers Gore and Allen were working early morning hours in Apalachicola Bay because of complaints they had received about night oystering. During the course of their patrol, they were able to locate two different vessels actively harvesting shellsh before sunrise. Both vessels were stopped and escorted back to the boat ramp. At the ramp, three individuals were cited for harvesting oysters between sunset and sunrise. Both operators were also cited for operating a vessel without navigational lights and an insufcient number of personal otation devices (life jackets). They were given warnings for no marine sanitation devices, no re extinguishers and no Apalachicola Bay Permits displayed on a vessel.

Alzheimers Project, Inc. has been in the county for three years, providing support groups with concurrent respite. In its effort to reach out to the rural communities, Alzheimers Project, Inc. will make caregiving easier in the Franklin County area by providing a support group for any and all persons who are caregivers. This support group, provided at no cost to the families, will take place at Trinity Episcopal Church in Benedict Hall, 79 Sixth Street. The meetings will be held the third Tuesday of each month, beginning at 10 a.m. Aug. 20. Caregivers can come and bring their loved ones with them, and while they attend the support group, their loved ones will go to another area for stimulating activities they will enjoy. The support group empowers caregivers with knowledge and information through fellowship and sharing of life experiences/ challenges with likeminded individuals who are caring for a loved one. A time to share laughs and tears, joys and concerns. You will receive a blessing just being with people who understand and want to share. This is a communitywide effort and we would like to enlist all persons who are caregivers/caregiving. Alzheimers Project, Inc., a non-prot organization, would like to extend a warm supportive welcome to all caregivers. We are currently located in 10 counties providing support groups with concurrent respite for their loved ones, day respite care programs, counseling, referral to community resources, and pro-active recovery of wanderers through Project Lifesaver Program (only in Leon, Jefferson and Wakulla counties). In addition, they offer a six-week class on Powerful Tools for Caregivers, which teaches caregivers how to care for themselves while they care for their loved ones. Please call Recie Culpepper at 386-2778 for more information. Church bBRIEFsSJohn Homer McKnight, 72, of Carrabelle, went to be with the Lord, Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013.

Attorney Ben Watkins dies at 88 BEN W Atk TKINsSBy DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com Once again, the First Pentecostal Holiness Church put on a vacation Bible school that is second to none. Last week, a record registration, 248 young people from throughout the county, enjoyed a VBS with the theme of Kingdom Rock: Where Kids Stand Strong for God. Terry Tipton, the churchs Christian education director, has overseen the event since 2001 and said this year was among the best ever. It went very well, it was a great year, said Tipton, who was helped by Michelle Chambers, the VBS assistant director, and 56 volunteers. Rex and Jamie Pennycuff, the childrens church pastors, dressed up in costume to bring to life the Bible stories, which all focused on standing strong. On Monday, the Bible point was Gods love helps us stand strong, bolstered by the verse I love you, Lord; you are my strength. (Psalm 18:1), and the story of David writing about Gods love in Psalm 23. On Tuesday, the Bible point was family and friends help us stand strong, founded on the verse So encourage each other and build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11) and the story of how Mordecai encourages Esther to do the right thing. (Esther 19). On Wednesday, when total attendance swelled to 315, the Bible point was how prayer helps us stand strong, supported by the verse Dont worry about anything; instead, pray about everything (Philippians 4:6) and the story of how Nehemiah perseveres to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem. (Nehemiah 16). That night the young people focused on missions during offering time, and raised $800 for Operation Christmas Child, that will provide a small gift and basic necessities for underprivileged children. On Thursday, the Bible point was that trusting God helps us stand strong, and it was boosted by the verse Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock (Isaiah 26:4) and the story of how Jesus dies and comes back to life. (Luke 22:3924:12) Also addressed that day was how the Bible helps us stand strong, founded on the verse Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119:105) and the story of how King Josiah follows Gods way. (2 Kings 22:123:23). On Friday, in the fellowship hall highlighted by a set and hand painted logo by lead artist Ola Jean Silva, the kids danced and sang and cheered all that they had learned all week. Wyatt Abercrombie performed on guitar the original song that had earned him a standing ovation and grand prize at the VBS Got Talent completion.

The council held a public meeting in Panama City Aug. 7 to gather comments on an amendment to the current shery management plan that would give states more authority in managing the species in federal waters, which begin nine miles offshore. A crowd of about 25 turned out to discuss a proposed regional management plan, which would allow the ve Gulf states to set their own bag limits and seasons by dividing the total recreational snapper quota. The states have asked for this, said anthropologist Ava Lasseter, who presented a series of actions the council will consider under the amendment. This allows the states to have those separate regulations for different parts of the Gulf, because the Gulf is not homogenous youve got different tourist seasons, different weather, different parts. Seasons and bag limits in federal waters are currently set by the National Marine Fisheries Service as outlined in the Magnuson-Stevens Act, the law governing shery management in the U.S. Mike Eller, captain of the Destin charter boat Lady Em, expressed concern with the uncertain long-term outcome of moving to regional management, questioning whether Florida would be prepared to take it on. Regional management is a very, very slippery slope, Eller said. I can see where regional management could have some bene ts and I could see where it could turn into a major asco. Ellis said Florida shery managers should rst look into better data collection for snapper stock. We think the state can make a big difference when it comes to data collection, Ellis said. If we dont do that rst, were putting the cart before the horse and were really not doing any good. The regional management plan also would eliminate a rule that requires for-hire boats holding federal reef sh permits to always comply with often stricter federal regulations regardless of state rules. Regardless of whether we do regional management or not, I would still recommend getting rid of that provision, said Panama City charter Capt. Bob Zales. That needs to be taken out and it needs to be done before the 2014 season. Carrabelle commercial angler Jim Clements attended the meeting to ensure the council didnt try to change the individual shing quota (IFQ) program that is currently in place for the Gulf commercial snapper shery. Clements, who has been in the commercial shing industry for 17 years, said the IFQ system is working and needs to stay how it is. If they do regional management in the recreational sector, they could look at doing it in the commercial sector, Clements said. I support this if itll get the recreational sector more days shing. They need something different to help them out. However, the change would not necessarily result in more shing days for anglers because snapper will remain a federally managed species. Council members will further discuss the proposal at a meeting in San Antonio Aug. 26-30 and nal action for the amendment will be on the agenda. However, of cials said they will likely push back nal action until the October meeting in New Orleans. Both beautiful and fragrant, the plumeria is beloved by people around the world. The plumeria, also known as frangipani, are owering plants in the dogbane family native to South and Central America and the Caribbean. Plumeria will grow vigorously and bloom regularly and profusely when they receive at least six hours of sun per day and an ample amount of the proper fertilizers. They must be planted in highly organic fast-draining soil or in beds with adequate drainage. Plumeria can be grown as container plants here. The pot may be sunk in the ground to give the effect of a landscape plant or placed in an indoor or outdoor grouping. During the winter, plumeria require very little care. When temperatures drop below 50 degrees at night, bring the plant inside and remove the leaves. Store in a cool dry place and do not water more than once a month. Dont allow temperatures to fall below freezing in the storage area. Propagate plumeria from cuttings of lea ess stem tips in spring. Allow the cutting to dry at the base before planting in well-drained soil Plumeria is named in honor of the 17th-century French botanist Charles Plumier, who traveled to the New World documenting many plant and animal species. Plumeria is related to the oleander and the sap of both shrubs is mildly toxic. Contact with the sap may irritate eyes and skin. In traditional Indian medicine, some plumeria species are considered purgatives or remedies for diarrhea and to treat in ammation, rheumatism, tumors and gonorrhea. Extracts of plumeria are also used in perfumes and incense. Indian incenses containing plumeria have Champa in their name. Hawaiians use the fragrant owers to make leis and plumeria are considered a symbol of everything good. In Malay folklore, the scent of the plumeria is associated with vampires. There, frangipani trees are often planted in cemeteries. Plumeria is also planted in cemeteries in Indonesia and the Philippines where it is associated with ghosts and spirits. Plumeria are associated with temples in both Hindu and Buddhist cultures. For Hindus the plant symbolized devotion and dedication; for Buddhists it is the symbol of immortality. In the Victorian language of owers, plumeria symbolizes beauty, charm, and grace. In Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, Hawaii and New Zealand, women wear plumeria to indicate their relationship status. Women seeking mates tuck the ower over the right ear and those who have a lover wear it over the left. Plumeria is the national ower of both Nicaragua and Laos.

Caleb Carmichael, 29, set a blistering pace in the hot weather as he breezed to victory in the 16th annual St. George Island Sizzler 5K Race. Carmichael, who last ran the Sizzler in 2004, and won it, while still an undergraduate at UWF, averaged a 5:14 mile as he nished the 5K in 16:16, nearly a minute ahead of 19-year-old Crawfordville runner Stanley Linton, who ran a 17:25. For a day like today, I never expect to run really well, said Carmichael. But for a hot day and humid, it was good. Carmichael, who coaches the Div. II cross country team at UWF, shaved 24 seconds off the 16:40 time he posted to win the Sizzler in 2004. These days he runs 60 to 70 miles a week, 13 to 14 miles on a long day, many of those miles alongside the Argonaut runners he coaches in Pensacola. I try to make an example, he said. Im able to tell people how to do it and show them how to do it. Running with the college kids keeps me young. Carmichael, now married with a 6-year-old daughter and a 4-yearold son, set the pace from start to nish, knowing that he could ease off at the end in the August heat. Race organizer Hobson Fulmer said he was impressed by the strong showing of the eld, which comprised a record-breaking 318 nishers. Despite the heat these were very fast times, said Hobson. It went very well. Another 32 runners took part in the One-Mile Fun Run, which was won by 9-year-old David John Miller, of Tallahassee in 7:19. This years race also set a rst by using embedded chips in each of the race bib numbers. The Gulf Winds Track Club, which made the race another Grand Prix event, handled the electronic timing. Fulmer said the electronics at the nish line would automatically record the time off the chips, and that there was also a camera set up as a backup plan. About 60 volunteers, each sporting purple staff shirts, handled everything from giving out waters to pointing out directions to the runners, to serving up the lo country boil at Lighthouse Park following the race. Representatives from the county humane society, which will bene t from the race proceeds, were on hand to show off adoptable pets to the large crowd. Carmichael, who said he especially appreciated the unique handmade design of the races awards, made it a long weekend for his family, as he relaxed before beginning practice at UWF on Monday. A 2002 graduate of Florida High in Tallahassee, he said hes looking forward to this years season, which will include his team taking part in the Florida State University Relays in March, which will showcase some of the best high school and college runners throughout the Southeast. Carmichael is also working on bettering his best times for the 5K, which included a 15:22 this past spring and a 15:54 last week.Track coach returns to take SizzlerWeems to offer free physicalsWeems Memorial Hospital will be offering free physicals Monday through Thursday, Aug. 26-29.

WIC staff and volunteers will provide fun prizes and refreshments along with information about nutrition and breastfeeding for WIC participants. This years World Breastfeeding Week theme, Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers, highlights the importance of providing support to breastfeeding families. The WIC program plays a vital role in providing support to breastfeeding moms. The WIC program offers a breastfeeding friendly environment with support from trained breastfeeding peer counselors. Deciding what and how to feed an infant is one of the most important decisions that new families make. Evidence is clear that breastfeeding is the ideal way to feed an infant. Research shows that infants who are not exclusively breastfed for their rst six months of life are more likely to develop a wide range of chronic and acute diseases, including ear infections, diarrheal diseases, asthma, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, obesity and respiratory illnesses. Mothers also benet from breastfeeding with a decreased risk for breast and ovarian cancers. World Breastfeeding Week is coordinated globally by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA).

LocalThe Times | A15Thursday, August 15, 2013Everybody had a wonderful time and was impressed with how many historic resources still exist here and how much that contributes to identity of the town, Peery said. It doesnt look like Anytown, USA. It is distinctly old Florida with a maritime orientation. We use the term historic, but were really talking heritage, she said. The Gibson Inn is a good example of a historic building that is still being used in the original way, but other structures that would have been useful in those early days have been adapted to a new uses, and remain. A good example of this is Robert Lindsleys gallery. The Apalachicola Area Historical Society and Apalachicola held a reception at the Robert Lindsley Studio Gallery on Avenue E gallery to welcome the distinguished preservations to the area. Lindsley donated the use of his building; prominent local citizens mingled with the distinguished visitors. Lynn and Bill Spohrer, responsible for an impressive amount of local preservation, traded war stories with the visiting preservationists. Historical Society President Tom Daly and local historians Mark Curenton, Delores Roux and Frank Cook were on hand to provide background and answer questions. Even Shannon Hartseld, president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association, commented on the condition of the bay while shucking and serving local oysters. The Trusts business meeting took place at Trinity Episcopal Church, also a donated venue. President Rick Gonzalez, who began his two-year term in May, urged Apalachicola residents to preserve what he called a special and unique place. I think Apalachicola is great, he said. The arrival over the bridge is phenomenal. It is a beautiful small town that hasnt been businessied. There are bumps in the sidewalks and plants growing on the walls of the buildings. Dont let go of that. Once its gone, its gone forever. Mark Tarmey, treasurer of the Trust is a frequent visitor to Apalachicola. He praised actions that have been taken to preserve the citys historic character. The city commission took historic design guidelines and made it an ordinance, Tarmey said. Thats important, but its not just the buildings that make it special; its the people and the whole sense of place. In Apalachicola, you have a brand thats known all over the country, a brand that is nationally understood. The next step could be to develop the whole waterfront as a park that acts as a ood control device. Peery said 13 of the 16 members of the Trust chose to stay overnight on Saturday and spend an extra day here. The preservationists brought along 11 family members to experience Apalachicola. Trust members stayed at the Gibson Inn, High Cotton Marketplace, Water Street Hotel and the Coombs House Inn. Peery said participants in the retreat paid their own travel expenses and dined at many local restaurants. It was a terric weekend from all of us getting work done, to meeting people within your community who have same passion for historic preservation we do, Peery said.

BEVIS, LETITIA B. BEVIS, ST. JAMES BAY PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION, Defendants. NOTICE OF SALE Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Final Judgment of Foreclosure for Plaintiff entered in this cause on July 16, 2013, in the Circuit Court of Franklin County, Florida, I will sell the property situated in Franklin County, Florida described as: LOT 2, BLOCK O OF ST. JAMES BAY SUBDIVISION, ACCORDING TO THE PLAT THEREOF AS RESCANDAL from page A1Rauscher expressed concerns about being able to thoroughly sift through the evidence against the bankers, which she expected to be voluminous due to the length of the investigation. She also anticipated that witnesses in the case would have difculties with their travel and lodging accommodations if the trial is held during Spring Break. Littleton pushed for the earlier trial date, arguing the April date falls during the heaviest period of Spring Break and there would be fewer spring breakers here in late February. The government, she said, is ready to try the case. To push this case to April is not necessary and would cause this case to linger, she said.AllegationsDubose was a director and chief executive ofcer for Coastal Community Holdings, which controlled Panama City Beachbased Coastal Community Bank, which included the former Apalachicola State Bank in Franklin County, and Port St. Joe-based Bayside Savings Bank. He also was its second largest shareholder. West was chief nancial ofcer and Baker, Coastals largest shareholder, was a director and an attorney. The men put up their banks as collateral when they borrowed $3 million in 2007. A year later, the borrower was pressuring them to pay up when they conspired to defraud a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) program designed to help banks get loans, federal prosecutors charge. The FDIC was guaranteeing loans between banks provided the loans were not secured by collateral. The men falsely assured the FDIC that they had not put up collateral on the rst loan to secure a second FDIC-guaranteed loan from CenterState Bank, which they then used to repay the initial loan and save their stock in the banks, the indictment says. The FDIC took over Bayside Savings and Coastal Community in July 2010, and CenterState led a claim for the FDIC to pay the $3.8 million they were owed, which the FDIC did. Each of the men is charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud against the FDIC and seven counts of wire fraud the counts are each punishable by up to 30 years in prison as well as three counts of making false statements to the FDIC and one count of aiding and abetting a false claim, each of which are punishable by up to ve years in prison. We deny the charges, Rauscher said. Duboses attorney declined further comment, citing court rules that prohibit attorneys from commenting publicly about pending cases. INMATES from page A1You have four-man squads, that van can transport 14. We can make one trip across the river. It doesnt require four different groups of staff to come pick the inmates up. I know theres going to be some missteps, he said. I would ask that you call that warden right there. I think hell bend over backwards to see you continue to get the services. Culpepper said that he had been warned that visiting the Apalachicola city commission would be like pouring salt in an open wound but he took a different view. Im not into what side of the river were on. Im trying to work with everybody, he said. Our community partnership with Bay City Work Camp goes back to 1989, he said. A lot of careers were built there and it provided a lot of assets to this community, and provided a lot of dollars for this town. The fact of the matter is it outlived itself. Culpepper said relocation to FCI Work Camp is a logical thing for us to do and will save millions of dollars. I cant even tell you how many times weve had to evacuate that work camp, he said. Each year the wind load capability goes lower and theres a lot of concern about the physical plant. Its in a low-lying area. The good news is, unless they make a conscious decision to do so, nobody loses their job, Culpepper said. I cant do anything about the loss the city is going to sustain. I cant do anything about that. Apalachicola is expected to see a loss of about $150,000 in water and sewer revenue next year as a result of the closure. At a breakfast hosted by FCI on Aug. 8, Culpepper said the relocation would not only preserve jobs, but add an additional 13 staff members, and an additional $425,000 salary dollars per year into the community. It hasnt come without scrapes and bruises along the way, he said. Some people arent happy. In his remarks to the breakfast, Atkins outlined how relocating medium security inmates from the main unit to the work camp will have an effect on the amount of smuggling by work crews of contraband, everything from cell phones to marijuana to tobacco, into the prison. He said much of this smuggling is done by work camp crews who are pressured by close custody inmates in the prison, who are there for life. These are very dangerous inmates that are in our prison right now, gang members and regular strongarmers, he said. In contrast, inmates assigned to work camps have less than 10 years left on their sentences, and are far less dangerous. They have a little more to lose, said Atkins. Culpepper said DOC was prompted to make the move in order to reduce a current $43 million decit. The folks who work for DOC, we pay taxes too and we like to see our tax money used wisely too, he said. We had two work camps that closed that required people to move 100 miles away to nd jobs.
