They will be asked to decide whether the county ought to levy an additional half-cent sales tax, to go to fund medically indigent care for county residents. If passed with a simple majority vote, and after commissioners agree on an accompanying ordinance, beginning in 2014 the half-cent would bring in at least $800,000, based on state estimates for the scal year ending Sept. 30, 2014. The decision by the county commissioners to place the matter on the ballot came after a discussion at the Aug. 20 meeting, begun at the budget workshop even earlier, with County Attorney Michael Shuler focusing on the rules surrounding shifting the current half-million dollar subsidy of the county ambulance service out of property tax money. Under questioning from Commissioner Pinki Jackel, who asked for a clari cation of guidelines surrounding existing taxes, such as the 1 percent health care tax, Shuler said his answer remained the same as the one he provided when rst asked the question a year ago at the 2012 budget workshop. “You gave only a quick opinion,” she said. “It’s only allowed to be used to operate the hospital or build a new hospital,” he said, adding that the interlocal agreements, signed with both Apalachicola and Carrabelle to enable the tax to be collected in those cities’ jurisdictions and turned over to the county, further clarify its speci c WHAT STATE LAW SAYS The state law enabling counties to levy an indigent health care surtax with voter approval is found in Florida Statute 212.055 (7). Here are some noteworthy details of what that statute says. • The governing body of any county that has a population of fewer than 50,000 residents may levy an indigent care surtax … only upon approval by a majority vote of the electors of the county voting in a referendum. The surtax may be levied at a rate not to exceed 1 percent. • The ordinance adopted by the governing body …. must set forth a plan for providing health care services to quali ed residents. The plan…. shall fund a broad range of health care services for indigent persons and the medically poor, including, but not limited to, primary care and preventive care, as well as hospital care.

On Saturday, August 24, Dr. Peggy Venable of Cairo, Ga., addressed a packed meeting room at the Eastpoint Firehouse to explain the traditions and beliefs of her people. The day began with recordings of traditional Native American music. Venable sang along in muted undertones as the crowd took their seats. Venable, who is a staff member at the Muskogee Vocational Rehabilitation Center and an authority on Muskogee culture, began her talk with a prayer. She explained that she is a Christian and that the Primitive Baptist church was largely responsible for the continued existence of Muskogee culture during the Trail of Tears and the Indian Removal of the early 19th century. “They took us in,” she said. “We were the first Indian people to get a Bible in our own language.” She said the tribes were largely disbanded and only in 1981 did the Muskogee win their tribal rights after 200 tribe members “walked the halls in Tallahassee, Atlanta and Washington D.C.” Within their traditional culture, the Muskogee were a social and spiritual people. Venable said they thanked God daily for the “water, the fire and the corn,” and offered Muskogee Indian tradition shared in Eastpoint LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Dr. Peggy Venable talks about Muskogee culture.

Two local banks here disappeared, gathered up by larger regional ones, and the once robust ranks of realtors thinned considerably, some abandoning the quest altogether to sell property and others venturing into more promising pursuits. Housing prices dropped, which put some homes in the reach of buyers, if only they could secure the resources to purchase them.

Water from heavy rains on Saturday night accumulated in the area of Kentucky Avenue on the far north of the Village. Emergency Management Coordinator Mike Rundel, a Lanark resident, said the area was a dry lake that lled and over owed during Saturday’s torrential rains. Snyder said the depression had held water until the severe drought began about 10 years ago. Rundel said two trailers were ooded when the depression over owed. “This is a good starting point for a mitigation strategy,” said Rundel. “We’re already looking for mitigation money. The funding may be available under FEMA’s Flood Mitigation Program, Predisaster Mitigation Program or Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.” Longtime resident Bill Snyder said the area was the former parade ground See HOUSING A13 DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times Randall Webster answered questions on behalf of the Franklin County Community Development and Land Trust Corporation.

S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) may conduct “snag ging” operations on the Apalachicola River. Tonsmeire said the FWF and the Riverkeeper pre sented the Florida Depart ment of Environmental Protection with a petition, which was held in abeyance three months while conser vationists negotiated with the Corps. Failing to reach an agreement FWF and the Riverkeeper requested the petition be presented to the DOAH. “Limited snagging re moves hazards and obstruc tions in the river channel, and is essential for safe naviga tion,” said Riverkeeper Dan Tonsmeire, “We support safe navigation and the removal of obstructions in the channel, but the extensive snagging allowed by the proposed per mit will result in signicant damage to the river banks and to the oodplain. “We believe that this damage is unnecessary and avoidable. We have asked for stricter and more specic language in the permit in order to keep the river safe for navigation while avoiding damage to the oodplain and the river,” he said. “The Riverkeeper fully supports keeping the river safe for both commercial traf c and recreational boats,” Tonsmeire said, “We believe safe navigation on the river is essential. After all, we’re out there in boats, too. We also believe that keeping the river safe and keeping the river healthy must go together. We agree with the Corps that they can do the snagging in ways that will achieve both, but we do not believe that the permit conditions as written will ensure that both goals are met. Past work on the River by the Corps has resulted in harm to the natu ral system. We stand ready to work with the Corps to ensure things are done cor rectly this time. “FWF and the River keeper worked hard with the Corps to nd areas of agree ment and mutual concern. That process ended with signicant areas of disagree ment unresolved,” said Tons meire, “We all went at it in good faith, but there were ar eas where we simply couldn’t agree. Now, our only option is to pursue our petition for a hearing and to seek modica tion of the specic conditions under which the work would be carried out.” “FWF and the River keeper have petitioned for a hearing on the issuance of the permit, “ said Pres ton Robertson of FWF, “We led the petition because the requested permit is vague about what the Corps could do, when they could do it and where they could do it. It al lows them vast discretion to work in ways which could cause unacceptable damage to a greatly-stressed natural system.” The organizations main tain that snagging in the past has caused erosion of the riv erbanks and reduced access to the oodplain both for sh and for shermen. “Our suggestions for the permit will help avoid de stabilizing the banks,” Tons meire said. “We ask for a pre cisely dened and charted 100-foot-wide channel. This channel would provide for safe passage of most com mercial barges, as well as recreational boats.” The Corps has asked for a 10-year permit, which the Riverkeeper and FWF be lieve to be too long. “Given the history and the new method of snagging that is being proposed, we think 10 years is too long for the initial permit,” Tonsmeire said. “A two-year permit with rigorous monitoring require ments is much better. This would provide an opportuni ty to document results of the new ‘snip and drop’ approach to snagging prior to issuance of a longer term permit.” Meeting the needs of both the natural system and navigation could create other benets, as well. The Riverkeeper has worked with commercial shipping interests to determine how a non-dredged, high-ow channel can provide for safe recreational and commercial trafc on the river. “Returning the higher ows necessary to keep the river oodplain and bay nourished, healthy, and pro ductive will also help to pro vide for safe navigation. Ev erybody can gain from this if we do it right,” Tonsmeire said. Riverkeeper, FWF petition to limit snagging A sinkhole appeared this weekend near the tennis courts at Chapman Square, (14th Street and Avenue D) in Apalachicola. The three-foot-by-three-foot de pression is over two feet deep. Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson said he only learned of the sinkhole on Monday. He said city crews are investigating the area around the tennis court and will act rapidly to stabilize the situation and repair any damage. He warned everyone to stay away from the depression until the cause of the collapse is known. County Planner Alan Pierce, too, warned every body to stay away from the hole. He said a collapsed storm drain might be the culprit. On Monday afternoon city crews determined an old terra cotta pipe had disintegrated and fenced the area off. The collapse was repaired on Tuesday morning. The collapse may be related to the unusually large amount of rain that has fallen this summer. On Satur day night, the county again experienced a prolonged downpour. The National Weather Service (NWS) said that about an inch of rain was recorded at Apalachic ola Regional Airport but Rod Gasche of Carrabelle, using both a digital and traditional rain gauge, report ed more than 7 inches fell on his home on Saturday night. According to NWS, based on the data from Cleve Randolph Field, county rainfall is about four inches above normal for the year. — By Lois Swoboda LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Sinkhole appears in Apalachicola F lorida LORIDA MEmor MOR Y P ro RO JECT Snagboat on the Apalachicola River circa 1920.

By Kathalyn Gaither Special to the Times Twelve weeks into hurricane season and, so far, it’s been relatively quiet. Which is why now is the right time to think about what actions you may need to take in the aftermath of a hurricane. The destruction during a hurricane or severe storm creates issues that many of us never think about, until after the fact. In 1992, Hurricane Andrew generated 43 million cubic yards of disaster-related debris over a 500-squaremile area in Miami-Dade County. At the time, it was the greatest recorded amount of disaster-related debris in the United States. In 2005, the amount of storm-generated debris more than doubled to 100 million cubic yards in the New Orleans metropolitan area following Hurricane Katrina. What is considered storm-generated debris and where does it go? Materials damaged and destroyed from winds and ooding are divided into four categories for disposal: construction and debris, housing materials such as lumber, concrete, shingles, bricks and glass; yard trash, trees, branches, shrubbery and other vegetation; white goods, appliances like refrigerators and freezers, washers and dryers, and e-waste such as computers and electronics; and municipal solid waste, household garbage. There are three classi cations of land lls where the waste is sent: Class I land lls are those that receive an average of 20 tons or more of solid waste per day (SWPD). Class II land lls receive an average of less than 20 tons of SWPD. Both Class I and II land lls receive general non-hazardous household, commercial, industrial and agricultural wastes, such as household garbage and rotting waste, uncontaminated yard trash and unsalvageable refrigerators and freezers (after chloro uorocarbons and capacitors have been removed). Class III land lls receive items such as yard trash, C & D debris, tires, carpet and other materials not expected to produce leachate. Although Franklin County’s land ll can accept yard trash, it is a Class III land ll and cannot accept household garbage. This material is shipped to a Jackson County land ll. Kevin Shiver, spokesman for the land ll said, after a major storm, landowners are expected to sort debris placed on the side of the road for pick-up. He said representatives of FEMA and land ll employees would explain which items can remain in the county and which must be removed by debris management contractors. The cleanup and proper disposal of debris after a storm is critical for the health and safety of humans and wildlife, water quality and the environment. Certain appliances, left unmanaged can leach toxins into the ground and contaminate water sources. They can also be potential deathtraps for young children. Unmanaged waste piles can attract unwelcome snakes and rodents, and water left standing is a magnet for diseasecarrying mosquitoes and other pests. Generally, curbside collection for household garbage and recyclables remains the same as before the storm, as long as roadways are clear. Staging areas for debris may vary countyto-county, so be sure to listen to local television and radio stations for the latest hurricane cleanup restrictions, and contact local solid and hazardous waste facilities for additional instructions. Go to www.dep.state. .us/mainpage/em/debris. htm and www.Earth911. com to learn more about the disposal of stormgenerated debris and recycling of household hazardous waste items. Remember, there are still 64 days left in the 2013 hurricane season! Be prepared. Kathalyn Gaither works for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

She giggled as her dog approached our leashed pets and explained her dog to be harmless and how much it loved the waterfront. After she was gone, I used a large bag to pick up her dog’s feces on the sand. A duty I am sure was never meant to be in her memory of the day. If by chance you see her, please explain: If left on the ground, your dog’s excrement “is harmful,” including bacteria, viruses and other microbes. A heavy rainstorm and spring run-off can easily carry dog waste into streams and rivers. Your pet’s waste can also cause illness in other animals and in people. Dog excrement contains a long list of bad bugs, including adenovirus, parvovirus, giardia, coccidian, roundworm, and tapeworm. I may have picked up your dog’s “leftovers” today, but it was not for you. It was for everybody else... Sincerely, Susan Fewell Lanark Village South Georgia farmers culprits in water wars I have lived along the Flint River at Lake Blackshear, Georgia since 1979. I have visited Apalachicola, Carrabelle, and later St. George Island, since 1959. Major culprits in the water issues are South Georgia farmers and their apparently unrestricted use of center pivot irrigation systems. They often pump water directly from the Flint and its tributaries (e.g. Swift Creek in Crisp County, Ga.). They bore deep wells extending into the aquifer with 10-inch pipes hooked to the public electrical power. This has rapidly increased in the last two years. It seems like every little pea patch in this area has a center pivot on it. Much of the water is sprayed on watermelon and cantaloupe crops cash crops for farmers but not essential as a food/ ber supply. Local politicians, government of cials, and our U. S. senators and congressmen will not touch the irrigation issues for fear of appearing anti-agriculture in this farming area. Go to Google, pick up the satellite picture of the Flint River beginning at Marshallville, Ga. and follow its path to the Florida state line. Look for crop circles (indicating center pivot irrigation) right up to the Flint on both sides and its tributaries. You will see the problem. Atlanta robs the Chattahoochee River but Georgia’s farmers are beginning to suck the Flint River aquifer dry with uncontrolled irrigation practices. We have lived on our property for 25 years with two water wells. Last year, both went dry for the rst time. Sincerely, Roy A. Ragan Cordele, Georgia Eldercare industry not well-suited for Carrabelle After reading the Aug. 22 story in the Apalachicola and Carrabelle Times headlined “Study offers ideas to boost Carrabelle economy,” I wholeheartedly agree that the area should have assisted living facilities which effectively meet the needs of the community and its populace. If the current local needs are not being properly met, then certainly that shortfall needs immediate addressing and correcting. However, the study suggesting that, in part, Carrabelle’s future be tied to the eldercare industry seems awed at best. How can Carrabelle aspire to become an eldercare mecca when it has almost none of the quali cations or resources needed to achieve success in that area? The “many vacant condominium units,” suggested for assisted living conversion, were not constructed with the special needs of the elderly in mind. Conversion, including meeting ADA compliance, would probably prove costly, if not cost prohibitive. Ultimately, conversion of these individual units, which are spread out over an area would not result in the creation of a facility whose clientele could be ef ciently and effectively overseen and cared for. In outlining some of the “special challenges” of the area, the Aug. 22 article warns about the income decline that can result when the population grows older. The article also points out that affordable accessible healthcare is already a concern for local residents. We should not seek to further grow our elderly population until we have the current healthcare concerns fully resolved. Attracting the, predominantly xed income, elderly to assisted living facilities is not the answer to Carrabelle’s nancial woes. I daresay these envisioned, large, assisted living care facilities would probably not be purchasing their many provisions from the local IGA or Dollar General. Their operation would ultimately probably mean more money leaving town going to Wal-Mart, Costco, or some wholesaler. Lastly, who are we trying to attract to these envisioned, assisted living facilities? As aforesaid, current and future local assisted living needs should unquestionably be fully addressed. Most assisted living candidates, however, probably choose to remain in the communities in which they already live in or in communities in which they have family. We should not delude ourselves into thinking that, just because we build the facilities, a large infusion of “outsiders” needing eldercare is going to materialize much less provide us with an economic boost locally. I give a great big YES to development of a hospitality district, increased tourism, recreation facilities, and retail establishments. Becoming an eldercare attraction, not so much. Stephany Railey Carrabelle Letters to the EDITOR Unless We Act: Consequences I’ll remember Apalach and its very old ways; I’ll remember this old town the rest of my days. Not more than two hours from where Granddad would praise This ole town’s big sh and crystal clear bays. The rst time the waters I crossed brought a hush For the wild was so peaceful, undeniably lush. The pelicans and osprey many an eagle, too, Were often in plain sight over rich acres of blue. Waters owed freely for hundreds of years, No hold back was fathomed: there seemed nothing to fear. But many years later the struggle grew near: Vast tons of crude oil to the west did appear. And then came the onslaught, lethal carriers were they, Of man’s broken promises of life better one day. In cities upriver very few had been taught That conserving their water was not just for naught. We said send us the water, let the estuary thrive, Send us the water to keep us alive. But the River and Bay they grew barren in time: Salinity and panic had wiped out our spine. Years later I remember the heart and the soul Of the old town in glory before I was old. I ne’er see a pelican or a dolphin at play More apt a skeleton at night walk the Bay. I will remember that beautiful Bay, And the River that ran through And helped make it that way. I will remember this old special town, Before fear and greed let its good people down. Melicent Remy The Poet’s VOICE After the storm, what goes where? By Kim Salerno Special to the Times You may see it quite often as you’re driving around town: dogs riding in the back of trucks. You might even know someone who does it. Why not? It seems so convenient to just load your dog up in the back and take them with you. According to the Humane Society of the United States, 100,000 dogs are killed each year in accidents involving riding in truck beds. In addition, veterinarians see numerous cases of dogs being injured because they jumped out or were thrown from the bed of a pickup truck. If these dogs are lucky enough to still be alive, broken legs and joint injuries are among the most common types of damage that they sustain and often result in amputation. There are many dangers of having your four-legged friend loose in the bed of a truck while you’re ramming the roads. It may not have even occurred to you, since dogs always have a tendency to stick their heads out the window of a moving vehicle to smell all of those new smells on the open road. But being in the open air traveling at high speeds (whether their head is out the window or they’re in the back of the truck) can likely cause damage to the delicate parts of their face. The swirling of the air currents in the bed of a pickup truck can cause dirt, debris and insects to become lodged in the dog’s eyes, ears, and nose. We’ve all had to slam on our brakes while we’re driving at some point; it’s inevitable. Now imagine slamming on your brakes while your beloved dog is in the truck bed. It’s going to get a serious jolt and it’s possible that it could y right out of the bed and into the road. You also run the risk of getting into an accident while you’re traveling with your precious cargo which could also force it out of the bed. And if you think that securing it with a rope or chain is any better, you’re wrong. There have been cases where dogs were thrown out of the back of the truck while still attached and being dragged on the road while the owner is still driving. Talk about a nightmare situation. Even if you don’t slam on your brakes or get into an accident, your dog may have plans of its own. Does your dog get easily distracted by squirrels, dogs, or other animals? Who’s to say it’s not going to jump out in order investigate a situation? How long would it take you to realize it’s gone? How will you be able to protect it while you’re in the driver’s seat? Dogs in truck beds LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Storm debris on the Eastpoint waterfront.

Arrests in this week’s report were made by of cers from the Apalachicola Police Department, Florida Highway Patrol and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Of ce. All defendants are to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Of cer Allen was on patrol in Bald Point State Park when he observed a group of individuals shing from the pier inside the park. Allen set up surveillance and observed individuals in the group catch several sh and place them in a bucket. After a period of time, Allen walked over to the group and identi ed himself. An inspection of the catch revealed ve undersized red drum. Citations were issued and the sh were returned to the water alive. Of cers Gore and Allen were on patrol when they went by a local boat ramp in Apalachicola. They noticed an old airboat hull with a motor attached and tied to a dock with no registration numbers. Further inspection revealed an individual lying down in the boat asleep. They set up surveillance and waited for the individual in the boat to awake. When the occupant got up, they approached the boat and identi ed themselves. Inspection of the boat revealed the occupant had been oundering and was in possession of 22 ounder. Also, the boat was not registered and had numerous boating safety violations. Citations were issued for commercial oundering without a restricted species endorsement and the occupant/ sherman was allowed to keep his recreational bag limit. The other ounder were seized and a court order was obtained and the sh were donated to a local charity organization. Of cer Allen was following up on information that an individual was harvesting oysters at night. When he arrived at the location where the individual docked his boat, he found the suspect’s boat tied to the dock with a commercial quantity of oysters on board. Allen set up surveillance on the vessel. After a lengthy surveillance, the suspect showed up late in the day and unloaded the oysters and took them to a local shell sh dealer. Once the process of the sale to the dealer had taken place, Allen identi ed himself and requested assistance from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS). Allen detained the suspect while personnel from DACS inspected the dealer. During the investigation, the suspect admitted to Allen that he had harvested the oysters the previous day and the oysters had been sitting in the vessel for 17 hours. Allen cited the individual for failing to tag oysters and failure to deliver in the required time. The DACS of cer seized the oysters and cited the dealer for improper coding of shell sh tags. Billy Rogers, the former head of Gulf County’s probation of ce, has assumed the role of administering the Franklin County probation of ce, effective Aug. 15. Richard Stewart, the president and CEO of Florida Probation Service, which has a contract to run the of ce, con rmed the previous supervisor of the of ce, Jennifer Brown, had been terminated. “The hours and services are unchanged,” said Stewart. “There was never a drop in service.” The of ce has a case load of 70 to 80 probationers per month, and handles services which include supervision of offenders, monitoring of court-ordered payments and programs, bond supervision, electronic monitoring, community service programs, and employment assistance. Florida Probation Service LLC, based in Panama City and founded by Stewart, a former Bay County commissioner, and Harold Bazzel provides local misdemeanor probation services to Bay, Franklin and Gulf counties.

Jackel indicated she didn’t fully understand why there was “a disconnect be tween the referendum and interlocal agreements.” The interlocal agree ments are necessary for the county to get nearly 30 percent of the estimated $1.6 million that will be brought in this year by the one percent health care sales tax. Apalachicola brings about 19 percent of the total take, or $302,000, and Carrabelle 11 percent, or $182,000. The remaining 70 percent came from busi nesses in the county’s un incorporated areas. Shuler said the addi tional half-cent medically indigent tax, which is only available to be levied by Franklin because it is a small county, would only go so far towards any other end. ‘There’s not enough gen erated by the half cent to do everything you want to do,” he said. “The monies gen erated are insufcient to do operational cost and do other infrastructure.” The attorney said go ing to the ballot box would cost $12,000, twice the cost of mailing out ballots, and pressed the commissioners to make a decision swiftly if they desired to meet the Supervisor of Elections deadline. The commission ers now must pass an ordi nance by Oct. 1 that, if the half-cent is OK’d by voters, would enable the money to be collected beginning Jan. 1, 2014. “She (Ida Elliott) needs about 90 days,” said Shuler. “I’m asking you to autho rize the supervisor of elec tions to do what she needs to do. If the voters don’t ap prove by the deadline, the ordinance is null and void.” Commissioner Noah Lockley moved, and Smokey Parrish seconded, holding the referendum. It passed 4-1, with Jackel objecting. “I am opposed to a fur ther tax burden on the peo ple of Franklin County at this time,” she said. “We’re going up a half-mill on the ad valorem tax and I under stand most of the rationale for this. but this is a tax that will affect every taxpayer in the county. “I understand that every taxpayer may benet from these monies collected and the use of the monies and the services, but with our current taxes going up, I think that next year would be a better environment to look at this, Jackel said. “We’re seeing the real es tate market begin to level off. We’re seeing our situ ation improve and I don’t think that two weeks’ no tice is enough time for us to fairly consider this on my part, to talk to folks and to even know what the con sensus is.” Jackel said she did not favor a mail out vote in any instance. “I understand that aspect for people who don’t want it for people who do but I disagree with a mail out vote,” she said. “I think that mailout votes typically prove that those who are in favor of something vote and those who aren’t don’t.” Jackel’s vote proved de cisive in the 3-2 vote to go to the ballot box and not the mails. She moved and Massey seconded the mo tion, with both Lockley and Parrish opposed. Carrie Johnson, a dep uty supervisor of elections, said Tuesday that Shuler had provided their ofce draft language for a ballot measure, which will be re viewed by both the county commission and the Florida Department of Revenue. “We have a tentative election date for Nov. 5,” said Johnson. “They’ll be no early voting.” Johnson said the books will close for voter regis tration on Oct. 7 and that absentee ballots will go out the rst week of October. Shuler said that the county commission will take up the question of the wording of the ballot mea sure, and the ordinance governing the imposition of the half-cent sales tax on Sept. 3. The draft language of the ballot measure speci es that the money will be used “to fund a broad range of health care services to qualied indigent and med ically poor Franklin County residents including elderly persons and children. The broad range of service shall include hospital inpatient services, hospital outpa tient services, emergency rooms services, primary and preventive care, and other medical services, in a cost effective manner.” To get a sense of what an additional half-cent will raise, the money brought in by the existing one-cent health care tax, rst im posed midway through 2008, has been pretty con sistent over the past ve years, with steady gains over the last two years. In FY 2009, the tax raised about $1.4 million; in 2010 $1.37 million; and in 2011 $1.4 million. Over the last two years it has been $1.53 million and $1.58 million. emphasize a continuity of care in the most costeffective setting, taking into consideration a high quality of care and geographic access. • Where consistent with these objectives, it shall include, without limitation, services rendered by physicians, clinics, community hospitals, mental health centers, and alternative delivery sites, as well as at least one regional referral hospital where appropriate. • It shall provide that agreements negotiated between the county and providers shall include reimbursement methodologies that take into account the cost of services rendered to eligible patients, recognize hospitals that render a disproportionate share of indigent care, provide other incentives to promote the delivery of charity care, and require cost containment, including, but not limited to, case management. • The plan must also include innovative health care programs that provide cost-effective alternatives to traditional methods of service delivery and funding. • The ordinance adopted by a county that has a population of fewer than 50,000 residents may pledge surtax proceeds to service new or existing bond indebtedness incurred to nance, plan, construct, or reconstruct a public or notfor-prot hospital in such county and any land acquisition, land improvement, design, or engineering costs related to such hospital, if the governing body of the county determines that a public or not-for-prot hospital existing at the time of issuance of the bonds authorized under this subparagraph would, more likely than not, otherwise cease to operate. • The plan required under this paragraph may, by an extraordinary vote of the governing body of such county, provide that some or all of the surtax revenues and any interest earned must be expended for the purpose of servicing such bond indebtedness. (Editor’s note: An extraordinary vote means passage by at least four of the ve county commissioners). • The term “qualied residents” means residents of the authorizing county who are: 1. Qualied as indigent persons as certied by the authorizing county; 2. Certied by the authorizing county as meeting the denition of the medically poor, dened as persons having insufcient income, resources, and assets to provide the needed medical care without using resources required to meet basic needs for shelter, food, clothing, and personal expenses; not being eligible for any other state or federal program or having medical needs that are not covered by any such program; or having insufcient third-party insurance coverage. In all cases, the authorizing county shall serve as the payor of last resort; or 3. Participating in innovative, cost-effective programs approved by the authorizing county.

Citizens can help with research on these species by reporting sightings online. “Reports from the public will aid us in determining where these snakes live and their status,” said Kevin Enge, FWC research biologist. All of these snake species have been petitioned for federal listing. The three species are found in dry, upland habitats and spend most of their time underground. They are only occasionally seen moving along the surface or crossing a road. For each report, the citizen is asked to provide the location where they saw the snake and the month and year the observation occurred. Researchers are also requesting citizens to submit photos of the snakes, when possible, to verify identi cation. Reports can include live or dead animals. Although these species are nonvenomous, citizens should avoid handling or disturbing them. For more information about living with snakes and to submit sightings to the FWC, visit MyFWC. com/Conservation, select “How You Can Conserve,” and choose “Snakes” under “Living with Wildlife.” By CHRIS BEATTY Special to the Times The Florida Wild Mammal Association (FWMA), a wildlife rehabilitation center in Crawfordville, is sponsoring a fundraiser photo contest. This year two new categories have been added black and white and macro. The other categories are bird, other wildlife, landscape, ower/plant life and altered. Bird photos can be of any bird in any activity or behavior; other wildlife photos can be any wild animal other than birds. Altered photos can be of any wildlife that has been altered via tools in Photoshop or other similar software. The subject must still be recognizable. Macro photos are extreme close-up photography, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. Photo subjects can be anywhere in the world. Entry fee is $10 per category and up to three entries may be submitted. In the interest of encouraging more young photographers to participate, there is no entry fee for age 17 and under. Either printed or digital entries will be accepted. Printed entries can be mailed to the FWMA, 198 Edgar Poole Rd., Crawfordville FL 32327, or dropped off at the Apalachicola Times, 129 Commerce St., Apalachicola, or the Wakulla News, at 3119-A, Crawfordville Road., Crawfordville. Digital entries should be emailed to fwmaeast@ aol.com. Entries must be postmarked or received no later than Oct. 15. Blind judging will be done by a team of local photographers. Winners will be noti ed by Nov. 15, and all entrants will receive an email shortly thereafter. Entrants willing to donate their photo entries will generate additional funds for the animals when the photos are subsequently sold. Category winners will be invited to visit the rehabilitation facility, with opportunities to photograph the wildlife in residence and in care. All winning images will be exhibited in a public location, to be announced, and all entries will be available for viewing on the FWMA Facebook and website. They will also be included in the subsequent FWMA newsletter. The rst overall winning photograph that includes wildlife will be used for the 2014 FWMA thank-you cards, and the second overall winning photograph that includes wildlife will be used for the 2014 FWMA brochure. All entries will be considered for use on the 2013 FWMA Christmas card. In addition, the category winners will receive an FWMA t-shirt and other donated prizes. Certi cates will be awarded to all winners. See complete instructions on the FWMA Facebook page. For folks not on Facebook, there is a link on the FWMA website www. wakullawildlife.org. Anyone without Internet access can call (850) 510-7583 to get a copy of the instructions. FWMA, in operation since 1994, takes in about 1,000 animals yearly. It is a non-pro t organization that depends totally on grants and individual donations to support the funding needs. Recently, demands for rehabilitation have increased while resources have decreased. All entry fees from this contest will be used for current needs at the center. FWMA has limited fundraisers this year, so let’s make this a great one! Pick out some of your super shots and share them with us for the animals. DANA MARTIN | Special to the Times FWMA sponsoring wildlife photo contest Saltwater License-Free Fishing Day Sunday Gov. Rick Scott and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have announced a saltwater license-free shing day for Sunday, Sept 1. On this day, Florida residents and visitors can experience Florida’s unique saltwater shing opportunities rst hand without being required to have a recreational saltwater shing license. “(This) is a great way for families to enjoy Florida’s incredible saltwater shing opportunities during the Labor Day holiday,” said Scott. “Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World and this license-free weekend is a great opportunity to introduce friends and family who may have never experienced Florida saltwater shing to enjoy the Sunshine States’ bountiful waters and historic shing communities.” License-free shing days, including freshwater days, were held April 13 and June 8 for freshwater and June 1 for saltwater. The FWC will consider adding four additional license-free shing days to the calendar at the Sept. 5 meeting in Pensacola. If approved, there will be two more saltwater and two more freshwater licensefree shing days before the end of 2013. All other regulations still apply. An annual license for residents can be purchased at 1-888-FISHFlorida or at License. MyFWC.com. All shing license fees are used to support Florida sh and wildlife conservation and help attain additional funding for Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration projects. All bag limits, seasons and size restrictions apply on these dates. For shing tips, locations and rules, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing.

The article announcing the list cites longevity in the business, and a talent for adapting to new conditions as characteristics of top captains. A commitment to conservation, a talent for boating multiple species of sh and showmanship were also considerations.

FROM THE ROBINSON FAMILY COLLECTION ROBINSON CHOSEN TOP 50 CAPTAIN SPONSORED BY Inshore Offshore Last weekend was the 17th annual MBARA king sh tournament in Mexico Beach. This event has raised more than a million dollars in recent years and has contributed over 150 arti cial sites that are a staple in our local shery, both for diving and shing. Good king sh are still hanging around. St. Joe Bay is clearing up, but slowly still this week. Just when we thought the rain was over, we got ooded out again last weekend. Our local streams, lakes and rivers are at the cresting level and hopefully will start to recede soon, returning us to our sh. Scallopers are still hunting good sized shells in St. Joe Bay and with good results as well. The shallow waters near Presnell’s channels are holding plenty of shells, but pay close attention to nd them in this thick grass.

CARRABELLE • APALACHICOLA CARRABELLE • APALACHICOLA S PORTS www.apalachtimes.com A Section the Gator red zone for their deepest penetration of the night. But with 6:41 left in the half, Wewa senior Isaac Madrid intercepted a McLeod pass in the end zone to sti e the drive. “I thought at times we ran the ball well, with Trent Lee, who led with 72 yards, and Alex Causey and Cole Wheeler,” said York. “But defensively we did not make tackles at the point of contact. We’re working on just missing blocks, and missing holes as far as running the ball. Defensively we couldn’t wrap up. We lost contain on several plays and those things we’ve corrected today.” Madrid managed the Gators’ sixth score of the night, and got the running clock going, when he hauled in a Ranie pass with 11 minutes left in the third quarter for a 47-yard scoring strike and a 41-0 lead. The Gators amassed a 34-0 lead going into the locker rooms after junior Bryan Harris scored a 23-yard rushing touchdown with 40 seconds left in the rst half. Wewa’s nal two scores both came courtesy of the Gator’s backups, as sophomore Hunter Hysmith rushed for a 43-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, and sophomore Caleb Shiver ended the game with a 61-yard touchdown gallop with no time left on the clock. “I was pleased with our second group that went in there,” said Kizziah. The Gators also got rushing production from senior Javar Hill, who ran four times for 23 yards; sophomore Cameron Jones, who rushed three times for 18 yards. Senior Jamie Hensley and sophomore Peter Setterich split the kicking assignment, with each nailing three extra points. Another Seahawk who got a workout on the sidelines was 2003 Apalachicola High School grad Jenni Edmiston Puhr, who has returned to the Panhandle while her husband earns his master’s at Florida State University. She earned her athletic trainer credentials after graduating from Troy University in 2007, and then enhanced them with a master’s in health administration in 2009 from the University of North Florida. She is working the Seahawks games on behalf of Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic, where she is employed. Franklin County hosts South Walton Friday, and York said the Seahawks are planning to bounce back to show their resilient side. “South Walton is going to throw the ball a lot and we are already prepping for them,” he said.

If your child even thinks they might play a sport they have to have a physical rst before they can even participate in an offseason workout or tryout,” said Athletic Director Mike Sweatt. If parents want to get a head start on lling out the physical forms then visit www.fhsaa.org and click on forms. You will need to have the EL2, EL3, and EL3CH forms signed and the correct information lled in. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin County High School varsity football coach Aaron York has a message for his players, after they were shut out Friday night in a pre-season game at home against Wewahitchka. “Everything we did wrong is correctable, and we will be ready to go on Friday night for our rst of cial game,” said York. “I was proud of your effort and not quitting when you could have. “We emphasize that it was a practice game,” he said. The thundershowers cleared in time for Friday evening’s Kickoff Classic, but that didn’t stop Wewahitchka’s Rashard Ranie from drenching the Seahawks. The junior quarterback scored two 70-yard touchdown runs in the rst quarter, added a third equally long scoring run midway through the second, and threw for a fourth TD in the nal quarter as he sparked the Gators to a 54-0 blanking of the home team. The lopsided win proved somewhat of a surprise to Wewa coach Dennis Kizziah, who had planned to use more of his offensive variations in the pre-season matchup. “I know they (the Seahawks) are a young team,” he said. “We didn’t get to run nearly as many plays as I wanted to. I wanted to throw it a little bit but we got ahead too quickly. “We wanted to work it in,” he said. “We’re going to be a running team but we got to throw some to keep them from putting eight or nine guys in a box on us. We have to throw it some to loosen them up.” York let it be known that it’s uphill from here for his squad.. “Our kids did not quit, all played hard throughout the entire game,” he said. “Out of the 26 we dressed, over half of them played their rst varsity football game it was a good learning experience for all of them; they learned the speed of the game.” After Ranie’s two touchdowns put the Gators ahead 14-0 going into the second quarter, junior Brett Satter eld scampered for a 59 yard score and a 20-0 lead. Seahawk senior quarterback Logan McLeod, handing off to senior runner Alex Causey, junior Cole Wheeler and sophomore Trenton Lee, then drove the Seahawks into Seahawks put preseason loss behind them Thursday, August 29, 2013 Page 11 Sports BRIEFS PHOTOS BY DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times Top: The Franklin County Seahawk line prepares to square up against Wewa.

The workshop brought together all the important players in the game being played out now in a chang ing housing market. “Basically the market is doing well,” said Gloria Salinard, director of the realtors association that serves Franklin and Gulf counties, out of ofces in a repurposed Avenue E building that succeeded where Dr. Photis Nichols long treated patients. “Inventory is down. The market has stabilized,” she said. “Cash sales are up, and there are a lot less fore closures in the inventory.” Since cash sales are the trademark of well-heeled investors, and not the av erage lower and middle in come household hoping for a doable 30-year mortgage, Salinard’s conference room bustled Saturday with rep resentatives of affordable housing help. Amber Lowry, mortgage loan ofcer with Centennial Bank, was there, along with fellow staffers Brenda Ash and Joan Buckner, to han dle banking questions and other private sector loan matters. Michael Ubias was there, a loan special ist from the USDA ofce of rural development, in Marianna, to talk about the low interest loan program for low income people. Lowry said the bank works with a range of op tions from FHA to Veter ans Administration, even with some products by USDA. The bank’s inter est rate varies, but are at historically low levels. Government issuers typi cally offer a xed rate loan, which Ubias said has been running in the neighbor hood of 4.25 percent for a 30-year mortgage. Ubias said his ofce has not had a lot of activ ity in the county over the past ve years, no more than you can count on the ngers of one hand. The Quincy ofce closed ve years ago. The terms can be 33years with a USDA loan, and more exible, but “credit standards are fair ly consistent with what a lending institution would require,” Ubias said. He said the major ad vantage is that low income people can qualify for a subsidy, and perhaps re ceive payment assistance, to meet the terms of their loan. He said it’s a no mon ey down program, with federal funding tied to the Farm Bill now pending in Congress. Loans are not available to buy used mobile homes, although some money is available to repair mobile homes. Randall Webster, rep resenting the Franklin County Community Devel opment and Land Trust Corporation, said the land trust’s original hope, to buy lots and work to keep the land value constant to keep the opportunity affordable, has evolved to where now they work mainly to nance existing homes. “We still have a lot in ventory,” he said. “About 24 quarter-acre lots, most do nated by Apalachicola and Carrabelle.” Steve Watkins serves as president of the land trust, with Cliff Butler as trea surer, the Rev. John Sink as secretary and Ella Bond and Lori Switzer both on the board. Webster said the land trust can work to prequalify people for loans, with credit history being the number one stumbling block to getting people into a home. “These are correctible. We can get some plan to straighten it out,” he said. “We want them to look at homes they can afford. We want to get them to be in the right price range.” Bond was there for Habitat for Hu manity, and said the group is nishing its fourth home in Eastpoint, and has a fth one under construction, also in Eastpoint. Switzer was there to share for the county’s SHIP program, which has money available to rehabbing existing homes and for down payment assistance for buyers. A repre sentative of Butler Insurance was there as well. “It’s a really good cooperative spirit,” said Webster. “I have hope.” Carol Bareld, who helped get these home ownership workshops started with the TIGERS youth program she over sees, said she was pleased with day. “We actually worked with over 16 families and they all left encouraged and some with grins on their faces,” said Bareld. “I like this kind of stuff, helping people to achieve their goals.” HOUSING from page A1 SALE sS BY AA REA RESIDENTIAL Statistics for Entire MLS from 7/1/2013 to 7/31/2013 A A rea # of S S ales T T otal S S ales A A vg.

It is written by Tevis Page, who volunteered this summer at the Times ofce. We welcome her to the newspaper pages, and we hope readers help shape her experience, and that of other talented young people who like to write and take photos, as they blossom into young journalists. First day of senior year, was both exciting and nerve-racking. The high school bell schedule had changed; we now had breakfast before rst period, instead of after. It was really peculiar to go there before my rst class. We have a new principal, Mr. Bidwell, who taught most of my freshman class four years ago. It has been amazing to see him climb to his goal, as we have climbed to our graduation. The rst day has always been reserved for senior schedule changes. This year was no different; the library was full of seniors jabbering about their schedules that read “Spanish II” (while not having a Spanish teacher to teach it) and what had happened the past summer. It was a bittersweet moment to see everyone together again, for I knew it would be the last time we all stood together to change our schedules in high school. Four years ew by so fast. It is something we all dreamed of for so many years, but never expected it to sneak up on us this quickly. As I began to get the hang of things, I realized that for two years I had consistently begged for a teacher’s aide position. This year, I did not get one, I got two! It is not as easy as I had imagined it to be, but I would not want it any other way. My teachers are amazing. They do not stop caring when the nal bell rings, but rather give us their personal phone numbers and tell us to never hesitate to call. They are just as excited about this year as we are. If this week is an indication of how the rest of the year will be, I believe this year will be amazing. Go Hawks! HAWK TALK An amazing school year lies ahead Schools

They will be asked to decide whether the county ought to levy an additional half-cent sales tax, to go to fund medically indigent care for county residents. If passed with a simple majority vote, and after commissioners agree on an accompanying ordinance, beginning in 2014 the half-cent would bring in at least $800,000, based on state estimates for the scal year ending Sept. 30, 2014. The decision by the county commissioners to place the matter on the ballot came after a discussion at the Aug. 20 meeting, begun at the budget workshop even earlier, with County Attorney Michael Shuler focusing on the rules surrounding shifting the current half-million dollar subsidy of the county ambulance service out of property tax money. Under questioning from Commissioner Pinki Jackel, who asked for a clari cation of guidelines surrounding existing taxes, such as the 1 percent health care tax, Shuler said his answer remained the same as the one he provided when rst asked the question a year ago at the 2012 budget workshop.

On Saturday, August 24, Dr. Peggy Venable of Cairo, Ga., addressed a packed meeting room at the Eastpoint Firehouse to explain the traditions and beliefs of her people. The day began with recordings of traditional Native American music. Venable sang along in muted undertones as the crowd took their seats. Venable, who is a staff member at the Muskogee Vocational Rehabilitation Center and an authority on Muskogee culture, began her talk with a prayer. She explained that she is a Christian and that the Primitive Baptist church was largely responsible for the continued existence of Muskogee culture during the Trail of Tears and the Indian Removal of the early 19th century. They took us in, she said. We were the first Indian people to get a Bible in our own language. She said the tribes were largely disbanded and only in 1981 did the Muskogee win their tribal rights after 200 tribe members walked the halls in Tallahassee, Atlanta and Washington D.C.

S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) may conduct snagging operations on the Apalachicola River. Tonsmeire said the FWF and the Riverkeeper presented the Florida Department of Environmental Protection with a petition, which was held in abeyance three months while conservationists negotiated with the Corps. Failing to reach an agreement FWF and the Riverkeeper requested the petition be presented to the DOAH. Limited snagging removes hazards and obstructions in the river channel, and is essential for safe navigation, said Riverkeeper Dan Tonsmeire, We support safe navigation and the removal of obstructions in the channel, but the extensive snagging allowed by the proposed permit will result in signicant damage to the river banks and to the oodplain. We believe that this damage is unnecessary and avoidable. We have asked for stricter and more specic language in the permit in order to keep the river safe for navigation while avoiding damage to the oodplain and the river, he said. The Riverkeeper fully supports keeping the river safe for both commercial trafc and recreational boats, Tonsmeire said, We believe safe navigation on the river is essential. After all, were out there in boats, too. We also believe that keeping the river safe and keeping the river healthy must go together. We agree with the Corps that they can do the snagging in ways that will achieve both, but we do not believe that the permit conditions as written will ensure that both goals are met. Past work on the River by the Corps has resulted in harm to the natural system. We stand ready to work with the Corps to ensure things are done correctly this time. FWF and the Riverkeeper worked hard with the Corps to nd areas of agreement and mutual concern. That process ended with signicant areas of disagreement unresolved, said Tonsmeire, We all went at it in good faith, but there were areas where we simply couldnt agree. Now, our only option is to pursue our petition for a hearing and to seek modication of the specic conditions under which the work would be carried out. FWF and the Riverkeeper have petitioned for a hearing on the issuance of the permit, said Preston Robertson of FWF, We led the petition because the requested permit is vague about what the Corps could do, when they could do it and where they could do it. It allows them vast discretion to work in ways which could cause unacceptable damage to a greatly-stressed natural system. The organizations maintain that snagging in the past has caused erosion of the riverbanks and reduced access to the oodplain both for sh and for shermen. Our suggestions for the permit will help avoid destabilizing the banks, Tonsmeire said. We ask for a precisely dened and charted 100-foot-wide channel. This channel would provide for safe passage of most commercial barges, as well as recreational boats. The Corps has asked for a 10-year permit, which the Riverkeeper and FWF believe to be too long. Given the history and the new method of snagging that is being proposed, we think 10 years is too long for the initial permit, Tonsmeire said. A two-year permit with rigorous monitoring requirements is much better. This would provide an opportunity to document results of the new snip and drop approach to snagging prior to issuance of a longer term permit. Meeting the needs of both the natural system and navigation could create other benets, as well. The Riverkeeper has worked with commercial shipping interests to determine how a non-dredged, high-ow channel can provide for safe recreational and commercial trafc on the river. Returning the higher ows necessary to keep the river oodplain and bay nourished, healthy, and productive will also help to provide for safe navigation. Everybody can gain from this if we do it right, Tonsmeire said.Riverkeeper, FWF petition to limit snaggingA sinkhole appeared this weekend near the tennis courts at Chapman Square, (14th Street and Avenue D) in Apalachicola. The three-foot-by-three-foot depression is over two feet deep. Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson said he only learned of the sinkhole on Monday. He said city crews are investigating the area around the tennis court and will act rapidly to stabilize the situation and repair any damage. He warned everyone to stay away from the depression until the cause of the collapse is known. County Planner Alan Pierce, too, warned everybody to stay away from the hole. He said a collapsed storm drain might be the culprit. On Monday afternoon city crews determined an old terra cotta pipe had disintegrated and fenced the area off. The collapse was repaired on Tuesday morning. The collapse may be related to the unusually large amount of rain that has fallen this summer. On Saturday night, the county again experienced a prolonged downpour. The National Weather Service (NWS) said that about an inch of rain was recorded at Apalachicola Regional Airport but Rod Gasche of Carrabelle, using both a digital and traditional rain gauge, reported more than 7 inches fell on his home on Saturday night. According to NWS, based on the data from Cleve Randolph Field, county rainfall is about four inches above normal for the year.

By Kathalyn GaitherSpecial to the Times Twelve weeks into hurricane season and, so far, its been relatively quiet. Which is why now is the right time to think about what actions you may need to take in the aftermath of a hurricane. The destruction during a hurricane or severe storm creates issues that many of us never think about, until after the fact. In 1992, Hurricane Andrew generated 43 million cubic yards of disaster-related debris over a 500-squaremile area in Miami-Dade County. At the time, it was the greatest recorded amount of disaster-related debris in the United States. In 2005, the amount of storm-generated debris more than doubled to 100 million cubic yards in the New Orleans metropolitan area following Hurricane Katrina. What is considered storm-generated debris and where does it go? Materials damaged and destroyed from winds and ooding are divided into four categories for disposal: construction and debris, housing materials such as lumber, concrete, shingles, bricks and glass; yard trash, trees, branches, shrubbery and other vegetation; white goods, appliances like refrigerators and freezers, washers and dryers, and e-waste such as computers and electronics; and municipal solid waste, household garbage. There are three classi cations of land lls where the waste is sent: Class I land lls are those that receive an average of 20 tons or more of solid waste per day (SWPD). Class II land lls receive an average of less than 20 tons of SWPD. Both Class I and II land lls receive general non-hazardous household, commercial, industrial and agricultural wastes, such as household garbage and rotting waste, uncontaminated yard trash and unsalvageable refrigerators and freezers (after chloro uorocarbons and capacitors have been removed). Class III land lls receive items such as yard trash, C & D debris, tires, carpet and other materials not expected to produce leachate. Although Franklin Countys land ll can accept yard trash, it is a Class III land ll and cannot accept household garbage. This material is shipped to a Jackson County land ll. Kevin Shiver, spokesman for the land ll said, after a major storm, landowners are expected to sort debris placed on the side of the road for pick-up. He said representatives of FEMA and land ll employees would explain which items can remain in the county and which must be removed by debris management contractors. The cleanup and proper disposal of debris after a storm is critical for the health and safety of humans and wildlife, water quality and the environment. Certain appliances, left unmanaged can leach toxins into the ground and contaminate water sources. They can also be potential deathtraps for young children. Unmanaged waste piles can attract unwelcome snakes and rodents, and water left standing is a magnet for diseasecarrying mosquitoes and other pests. Generally, curbside collection for household garbage and recyclables remains the same as before the storm, as long as roadways are clear. Staging areas for debris may vary countyto-county, so be sure to listen to local television and radio stations for the latest hurricane cleanup restrictions, and contact local solid and hazardous waste facilities for additional instructions. Go to www.dep.state. .us/mainpage/em/debris. htm and www.Earth911. com to learn more about the disposal of stormgenerated debris and recycling of household hazardous waste items. Remember, there are still 64 days left in the 2013 hurricane season! Be prepared. Kathalyn Gaither works for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

She giggled as her dog approached our leashed pets and explained her dog to be harmless and how much it loved the waterfront. After she was gone, I used a large bag to pick up her dogs feces on the sand. A duty I am sure was never meant to be in her memory of the day. If by chance you see her, please explain: If left on the ground, your dogs excrement is harmful, including bacteria, viruses and other microbes. A heavy rainstorm and spring run-off can easily carry dog waste into streams and rivers. Your pets waste can also cause illness in other animals and in people. Dog excrement contains a long list of bad bugs, including adenovirus, parvovirus, giardia, coccidian, roundworm, and tapeworm. I may have picked up your dogs leftovers today, but it was not for you. It was for everybody else...Sincerely, Susan FewellLanark VillageSouth Georgia farmers culprits in water warsI have lived along the Flint River at Lake Blackshear, Georgia since 1979. I have visited Apalachicola, Carrabelle, and later St. George Island, since 1959. Major culprits in the water issues are South Georgia farmers and their apparently unrestricted use of center pivot irrigation systems. They often pump water directly from the Flint and its tributaries (e.g. Swift Creek in Crisp County, Ga.). They bore deep wells extending into the aquifer with 10-inch pipes hooked to the public electrical power. This has rapidly increased in the last two years. It seems like every little pea patch in this area has a center pivot on it. Much of the water is sprayed on watermelon and cantaloupe crops cash crops for farmers but not essential as a food/ ber supply. Local politicians, government of cials, and our U. S. senators and congressmen will not touch the irrigation issues for fear of appearing anti-agriculture in this farming area. Go to Google, pick up the satellite picture of the Flint River beginning at Marshallville, Ga. and follow its path to the Florida state line. Look for crop circles (indicating center pivot irrigation) right up to the Flint on both sides and its tributaries. You will see the problem. Atlanta robs the Chattahoochee River but Georgias farmers are beginning to suck the Flint River aquifer dry with uncontrolled irrigation practices. We have lived on our property for 25 years with two water wells. Last year, both went dry for the rst time.Sincerely, Roy A. RaganCordele, GeorgiaEldercare industry not well-suited for CarrabelleAfter reading the Aug. 22 story in the Apalachicola and Carrabelle Times headlined Study offers ideas to boost Carrabelle economy, I wholeheartedly agree that the area should have assisted living facilities which effectively meet the needs of the community and its populace. If the current local needs are not being properly met, then certainly that shortfall needs immediate addressing and correcting. However, the study suggesting that, in part, Carrabelles future be tied to the eldercare industry seems awed at best. How can Carrabelle aspire to become an eldercare mecca when it has almost none of the quali cations or resources needed to achieve success in that area? The many vacant condominium units, suggested for assisted living conversion, were not constructed with the special needs of the elderly in mind. Conversion, including meeting ADA compliance, would probably prove costly, if not cost prohibitive. Ultimately, conversion of these individual units, which are spread out over an area would not result in the creation of a facility whose clientele could be ef ciently and effectively overseen and cared for. In outlining some of the special challenges of the area, the Aug. 22 article warns about the income decline that can result when the population grows older. The article also points out that affordable accessible healthcare is already a concern for local residents. We should not seek to further grow our elderly population until we have the current healthcare concerns fully resolved. Attracting the, predominantly xed income, elderly to assisted living facilities is not the answer to Carrabelles nancial woes. I daresay these envisioned, large, assisted living care facilities would probably not be purchasing their many provisions from the local IGA or Dollar General. Their operation would ultimately probably mean more money leaving town going to Wal-Mart, Costco, or some wholesaler. Lastly, who are we trying to attract to these envisioned, assisted living facilities? As aforesaid, current and future local assisted living needs should unquestionably be fully addressed. Most assisted living candidates, however, probably choose to remain in the communities in which they already live in or in communities in which they have family. We should not delude ourselves into thinking that, just because we build the facilities, a large infusion of outsiders needing eldercare is going to materialize much less provide us with an economic boost locally. I give a great big YES to development of a hospitality district, increased tourism, recreation facilities, and retail establishments. Becoming an eldercare attraction, not so much.Stephany RaileyCarrabelle Letters to the EDITOR Unless We Act: Consequences Ill remember Apalach and its very old ways; Ill remember this old town the rest of my days. Not more than two hours from where Granddad would praise This ole towns big sh and crystal clear bays. The rst time the waters I crossed brought a hush For the wild was so peaceful, undeniably lush. The pelicans and osprey many an eagle, too, Were often in plain sight over rich acres of blue. Waters owed freely for hundreds of years, No hold back was fathomed: there seemed nothing to fear. But many years later the struggle grew near: Vast tons of crude oil to the west did appear. And then came the onslaught, lethal carriers were they, Of mans broken promises of life better one day. In cities upriver very few had been taught That conserving their water was not just for naught. We said send us the water, let the estuary thrive, Send us the water to keep us alive. But the River and Bay they grew barren in time: Salinity and panic had wiped out our spine. Years later I remember the heart and the soul Of the old town in glory before I was old. I neer see a pelican or a dolphin at play More apt a skeleton at night walk the Bay. I will remember that beautiful Bay, And the River that ran through And helped make it that way. I will remember this old special town, Before fear and greed let its good people down.Melicent Remy The Poets VOICE After the storm, what goes where?By Kim SalernoSpecial to the Times You may see it quite often as youre driving around town: dogs riding in the back of trucks. You might even know someone who does it. Why not? It seems so convenient to just load your dog up in the back and take them with you. According to the Humane Society of the United States, 100,000 dogs are killed each year in accidents involving riding in truck beds. In addition, veterinarians see numerous cases of dogs being injured because they jumped out or were thrown from the bed of a pickup truck. If these dogs are lucky enough to still be alive, broken legs and joint injuries are among the most common types of damage that they sustain and often result in amputation. There are many dangers of having your four-legged friend loose in the bed of a truck while youre ramming the roads. It may not have even occurred to you, since dogs always have a tendency to stick their heads out the window of a moving vehicle to smell all of those new smells on the open road. But being in the open air traveling at high speeds (whether their head is out the window or theyre in the back of the truck) can likely cause damage to the delicate parts of their face. The swirling of the air currents in the bed of a pickup truck can cause dirt, debris and insects to become lodged in the dogs eyes, ears, and nose. Weve all had to slam on our brakes while were driving at some point; its inevitable. Now imagine slamming on your brakes while your beloved dog is in the truck bed. Its going to get a serious jolt and its possible that it could y right out of the bed and into the road. You also run the risk of getting into an accident while youre traveling with your precious cargo which could also force it out of the bed. And if you think that securing it with a rope or chain is any better, youre wrong. There have been cases where dogs were thrown out of the back of the truck while still attached and being dragged on the road while the owner is still driving. Talk about a nightmare situation. Even if you dont slam on your brakes or get into an accident, your dog may have plans of its own. Does your dog get easily distracted by squirrels, dogs, or other animals? Whos to say its not going to jump out in order investigate a situation? How long would it take you to realize its gone? How will you be able to protect it while youre in the drivers seat?Dogs in truck beds LOIS SWOBODA | The TimesStorm debris on the Eastpoint waterfront.

The following report is provided by the Franklin County Sheriffs Of ce. Arrests in this weeks report were made by of cers from the Apalachicola Police Department, Florida Highway Patrol and the Franklin County Sheriffs Of ce. All defendants are to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Of cer Allen was on patrol in Bald Point State Park when he observed a group of individuals shing from the pier inside the park. Allen set up surveillance and observed individuals in the group catch several sh and place them in a bucket. After a period of time, Allen walked over to the group and identi ed himself. An inspection of the catch revealed ve undersized red drum. Citations were issued and the sh were returned to the water alive. Of cers Gore and Allen were on patrol when they went by a local boat ramp in Apalachicola. They noticed an old airboat hull with a motor attached and tied to a dock with no registration numbers. Further inspection revealed an individual lying down in the boat asleep. They set up surveillance and waited for the individual in the boat to awake. When the occupant got up, they approached the boat and identi ed themselves. Inspection of the boat revealed the occupant had been oundering and was in possession of 22 ounder. Also, the boat was not registered and had numerous boating safety violations. Citations were issued for commercial oundering without a restricted species endorsement and the occupant/ sherman was allowed to keep his recreational bag limit. The other ounder were seized and a court order was obtained and the sh were donated to a local charity organization. Of cer Allen was following up on information that an individual was harvesting oysters at night. When he arrived at the location where the individual docked his boat, he found the suspects boat tied to the dock with a commercial quantity of oysters on board. Allen set up surveillance on the vessel. After a lengthy surveillance, the suspect showed up late in the day and unloaded the oysters and took them to a local shell sh dealer. Once the process of the sale to the dealer had taken place, Allen identi ed himself and requested assistance from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS). Allen detained the suspect while personnel from DACS inspected the dealer. During the investigation, the suspect admitted to Allen that he had harvested the oysters the previous day and the oysters had been sitting in the vessel for 17 hours. Allen cited the individual for failing to tag oysters and failure to deliver in the required time. The DACS of cer seized the oysters and cited the dealer for improper coding of shell sh tags. Billy Rogers, the former head of Gulf Countys probation of ce, has assumed the role of administering the Franklin County probation of ce, effective Aug. 15. Richard Stewart, the president and CEO of Florida Probation Service, which has a contract to run the of ce, con rmed the previous supervisor of the of ce, Jennifer Brown, had been terminated. The hours and services are unchanged, said Stewart. There was never a drop in service. The of ce has a case load of 70 to 80 probationers per month, and handles services which include supervision of offenders, monitoring of court-ordered payments and programs, bond supervision, electronic monitoring, community service programs, and employment assistance.

Without agreement you dont have funding for a hospital at all, said Shuler. Jackel indicated she didnt fully understand why there was a disconnect between the referendum and interlocal agreements. The interlocal agreements are necessary for the county to get nearly 30 percent of the estimated $1.6 million that will be brought in this year by the one percent health care sales tax. Apalachicola brings about 19 percent of the total take, or $302,000, and Carrabelle 11 percent, or $182,000. The remaining 70 percent came from businesses in the countys unincorporated areas. Shuler said the additional half-cent medically indigent tax, which is only available to be levied by Franklin because it is a small county, would only go so far towards any other end. Theres not enough generated by the half cent to do everything you want to do, he said. The monies generated are insufcient to do operational cost and do other infrastructure. The attorney said going to the ballot box would cost $12,000, twice the cost of mailing out ballots, and pressed the commissioners to make a decision swiftly if they desired to meet the Supervisor of Elections deadline. The commissioners now must pass an ordinance by Oct. 1 that, if the half-cent is OKd by voters, would enable the money to be collected beginning Jan. 1, 2014. She (Ida Elliott) needs about 90 days, said Shuler. Im asking you to authorize the supervisor of elections to do what she needs to do. If the voters dont approve by the deadline, the ordinance is null and void. Commissioner Noah Lockley moved, and Smokey Parrish seconded, holding the referendum. It passed 4-1, with Jackel objecting. I am opposed to a further tax burden on the people of Franklin County at this time, she said. Were going up a half-mill on the ad valorem tax and I understand most of the rationale for this. but this is a tax that will affect every taxpayer in the county. I understand that every taxpayer may benet from these monies collected and the use of the monies and the services, but with our current taxes going up, I think that next year would be a better environment to look at this, Jackel said. Were seeing the real estate market begin to level off. Were seeing our situation improve and I dont think that two weeks notice is enough time for us to fairly consider this on my part, to talk to folks and to even know what the consensus is. Jackel said she did not favor a mail out vote in any instance. I understand that aspect for people who dont want it for people who do but I disagree with a mail out vote, she said. I think that mailout votes typically prove that those who are in favor of something vote and those who arent dont. Jackels vote proved decisive in the 3-2 vote to go to the ballot box and not the mails. She moved and Massey seconded the motion, with both Lockley and Parrish opposed. Carrie Johnson, a deputy supervisor of elections, said Tuesday that Shuler had provided their ofce draft language for a ballot measure, which will be reviewed by both the county commission and the Florida Department of Revenue. We have a tentative election date for Nov. 5, said Johnson. Theyll be no early voting. Johnson said the books will close for voter registration on Oct. 7 and that absentee ballots will go out the rst week of October. Shuler said that the county commission will take up the question of the wording of the ballot measure, and the ordinance governing the imposition of the half-cent sales tax on Sept. 3. The draft language of the ballot measure species that the money will be used to fund a broad range of health care services to qualied indigent and medically poor Franklin County residents including elderly persons and children. The broad range of service shall include hospital inpatient services, hospital outpatient services, emergency rooms services, primary and preventive care, and other medical services, in a cost effective manner. To get a sense of what an additional half-cent will raise, the money brought in by the existing one-cent health care tax, rst imposed midway through 2008, has been pretty consistent over the past ve years, with steady gains over the last two years. In FY 2009, the tax raised about $1.4 million; in 2010 $1.37 million; and in 2011 $1.4 million. Over the last two years it has been $1.53 million and $1.58 million. emphasize a continuity of care in the most costeffective setting, taking into consideration a high quality of care and geographic access. Where consistent with these objectives, it shall include, without limitation, services rendered by physicians, clinics, community hospitals, mental health centers, and alternative delivery sites, as well as at least one regional referral hospital where appropriate. It shall provide that agreements negotiated between the county and providers shall include reimbursement methodologies that take into account the cost of services rendered to eligible patients, recognize hospitals that render a disproportionate share of indigent care, provide other incentives to promote the delivery of charity care, and require cost containment, including, but not limited to, case management. The plan must also include innovative health care programs that provide cost-effective alternatives to traditional methods of service delivery and funding. The ordinance adopted by a county that has a population of fewer than 50,000 residents may pledge surtax proceeds to service new or existing bond indebtedness incurred to nance, plan, construct, or reconstruct a public or notfor-prot hospital in such county and any land acquisition, land improvement, design, or engineering costs related to such hospital, if the governing body of the county determines that a public or not-for-prot hospital existing at the time of issuance of the bonds authorized under this subparagraph would, more likely than not, otherwise cease to operate. The plan required under this paragraph may, by an extraordinary vote of the governing body of such county, provide that some or all of the surtax revenues and any interest earned must be expended for the purpose of servicing such bond indebtedness. (Editors note: An extraordinary vote means passage by at least four of the ve county commissioners). The term qualied residents means residents of the authorizing county who are: 1. Qualied as indigent persons as certied by the authorizing county; 2. Certied by the authorizing county as meeting the denition of the medically poor, dened as persons having insufcient income, resources, and assets to provide the needed medical care without using resources required to meet basic needs for shelter, food, clothing, and personal expenses; not being eligible for any other state or federal program or having medical needs that are not covered by any such program; or having insufcient third-party insurance coverage. In all cases, the authorizing county shall serve as the payor of last resort; or 3. Participating in innovative, cost-effective programs approved by the authorizing county.

She said 55 tribes speaking many languages formed a loose confederacy of towns, each with a population of about 125 people. Im not sure where we came from but were here and thats what matters, she said. Unlike the popular image of Native Americans who rode ponies and lived in teepees, she said the Muskogee inhabited the swamps in the Southeast, traveled on the rivers and lived in clusters of log houses. We had a really big history in this area, said Venable. There were 10 towns in the area of Apalachicola. She said she believes there are many residents in Franklin County who are unaware of their Native American heritage. During Saturdays beginners class, Venable briefly discussed Muskogee religion, government and lifestyle in the morning. After a shared lunch, the group learned about myths and legends of the tribe during the afternoon session. Tanya and Joseph James and Sondra Powell organized the seminar.

Citizens can help with research on these species by reporting sightings online. Reports from the public will aid us in determining where these snakes live and their status, said Kevin Enge, FWC research biologist. All of these snake species have been petitioned for federal listing. The three species are found in dry, upland habitats and spend most of their time underground. They are only occasionally seen moving along the surface or crossing a road. For each report, the citizen is asked to provide the location where they saw the snake and the month and year the observation occurred. Researchers are also requesting citizens to submit photos of the snakes, when possible, to verify identi cation. Reports can include live or dead animals. Although these species are nonvenomous, citizens should avoid handling or disturbing them. For more information about living with snakes and to submit sightings to the FWC, visit MyFWC. com/Conservation, select How You Can Conserve, and choose Snakes under Living with Wildlife.By CHRIS BEATTYSpecial to the Times The Florida Wild Mammal Association (FWMA), a wildlife rehabilitation center in Crawfordville, is sponsoring a fundraiser photo contest. This year two new categories have been added black and white and macro. The other categories are bird, other wildlife, landscape, ower/plant life and altered. Bird photos can be of any bird in any activity or behavior; other wildlife photos can be any wild animal other than birds. Altered photos can be of any wildlife that has been altered via tools in Photoshop or other similar software. The subject must still be recognizable. Macro photos are extreme close-up photography, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. Photo subjects can be anywhere in the world. Entry fee is $10 per category and up to three entries may be submitted. In the interest of encouraging more young photographers to participate, there is no entry fee for age 17 and under. Either printed or digital entries will be accepted. Printed entries can be mailed to the FWMA, 198 Edgar Poole Rd., Crawfordville FL 32327, or dropped off at the Apalachicola Times, 129 Commerce St., Apalachicola, or the Wakulla News, at 3119-A, Crawfordville Road., Crawfordville. Digital entries should be emailed to fwmaeast@ aol.com. Entries must be postmarked or received no later than Oct. 15. Blind judging will be done by a team of local photographers. Winners will be noti ed by Nov. 15, and all entrants will receive an email shortly thereafter. Entrants willing to donate their photo entries will generate additional funds for the animals when the photos are subsequently sold. Category winners will be invited to visit the rehabilitation facility, with opportunities to photograph the wildlife in residence and in care. All winning images will be exhibited in a public location, to be announced, and all entries will be available for viewing on the FWMA Facebook and website. They will also be included in the subsequent FWMA newsletter. The rst overall winning photograph that includes wildlife will be used for the 2014 FWMA thank-you cards, and the second overall winning photograph that includes wildlife will be used for the 2014 FWMA brochure. All entries will be considered for use on the 2013 FWMA Christmas card. In addition, the category winners will receive an FWMA t-shirt and other donated prizes. Certi cates will be awarded to all winners. See complete instructions on the FWMA Facebook page. For folks not on Facebook, there is a link on the FWMA website www. wakullawildlife.org. Anyone without Internet access can call (850) 510-7583 to get a copy of the instructions. FWMA, in operation since 1994, takes in about 1,000 animals yearly. It is a non-pro t organization that depends totally on grants and individual donations to support the funding needs. Recently, demands for rehabilitation have increased while resources have decreased. All entry fees from this contest will be used for current needs at the center. FWMA has limited fundraisers this year, so lets make this a great one! Pick out some of your super shots and share them with us for the animals.DANA MARTIN | Special to the TimesFWMA sponsoring wildlife photo contest Saltwater License-Free Fishing Day SundayGov. Rick Scott and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have announced a saltwater license-free shing day for Sunday, Sept 1. On this day, Florida residents and visitors can experience Floridas unique saltwater shing opportunities rst hand without being required to have a recreational saltwater shing license. (This) is a great way for families to enjoy Floridas incredible saltwater shing opportunities during the Labor Day holiday, said Scott. Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World and this license-free weekend is a great opportunity to introduce friends and family who may have never experienced Florida saltwater shing to enjoy the Sunshine States bountiful waters and historic shing communities. License-free shing days, including freshwater days, were held April 13 and June 8 for freshwater and June 1 for saltwater. The FWC will consider adding four additional license-free shing days to the calendar at the Sept. 5 meeting in Pensacola. If approved, there will be two more saltwater and two more freshwater licensefree shing days before the end of 2013. All other regulations still apply. An annual license for residents can be purchased at 1-888-FISHFlorida or at License. MyFWC.com. All shing license fees are used to support Florida sh and wildlife conservation and help attain additional funding for Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration projects. All bag limits, seasons and size restrictions apply on these dates. For shing tips, locations and rules, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing.

CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA CARRABELLE APALACHICOLA SPORTS www.apalachtimes.com ASectionthe Gator red zone for their deepest penetration of the night. But with 6:41 left in the half, Wewa senior Isaac Madrid intercepted a McLeod pass in the end zone to sti e the drive. I thought at times we ran the ball well, with Trent Lee, who led with 72 yards, and Alex Causey and Cole Wheeler, said York. But defensively we did not make tackles at the point of contact. Were working on just missing blocks, and missing holes as far as running the ball. Defensively we couldnt wrap up. We lost contain on several plays and those things weve corrected today. Madrid managed the Gators sixth score of the night, and got the running clock going, when he hauled in a Ranie pass with 11 minutes left in the third quarter for a 47-yard scoring strike and a 41-0 lead. The Gators amassed a 34-0 lead going into the locker rooms after junior Bryan Harris scored a 23-yard rushing touchdown with 40 seconds left in the rst half. Wewas nal two scores both came courtesy of the Gators backups, as sophomore Hunter Hysmith rushed for a 43-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, and sophomore Caleb Shiver ended the game with a 61-yard touchdown gallop with no time left on the clock. I was pleased with our second group that went in there, said Kizziah. The Gators also got rushing production from senior Javar Hill, who ran four times for 23 yards; sophomore Cameron Jones, who rushed three times for 18 yards. Senior Jamie Hensley and sophomore Peter Setterich split the kicking assignment, with each nailing three extra points. Another Seahawk who got a workout on the sidelines was 2003 Apalachicola High School grad Jenni Edmiston Puhr, who has returned to the Panhandle while her husband earns his masters at Florida State University. She earned her athletic trainer credentials after graduating from Troy University in 2007, and then enhanced them with a masters in health administration in 2009 from the University of North Florida. She is working the Seahawks games on behalf of Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic, where she is employed. Franklin County hosts South Walton Friday, and York said the Seahawks are planning to bounce back to show their resilient side. South Walton is going to throw the ball a lot and we are already prepping for them, he said.

Everything we did wrong is correctable, and we will be ready to go on Friday night for our rst of cial game, said York. I was proud of your effort and not quitting when you could have. We emphasize that it was a practice game, he said. The thundershowers cleared in time for Friday evenings Kickoff Classic, but that didnt stop Wewahitchkas Rashard Ranie from drenching the Seahawks. The junior quarterback scored two 70-yard touchdown runs in the rst quarter, added a third equally long scoring run midway through the second, and threw for a fourth TD in the nal quarter as he sparked the Gators to a 54-0 blanking of the home team. The lopsided win proved somewhat of a surprise to Wewa coach Dennis Kizziah, who had planned to use more of his offensive variations in the pre-season matchup. I know they (the Seahawks) are a young team, he said. We didnt get to run nearly as many plays as I wanted to. I wanted to throw it a little bit but we got ahead too quickly. We wanted to work it in, he said. Were going to be a running team but we got to throw some to keep them from putting eight or nine guys in a box on us. We have to throw it some to loosen them up. York let it be known that its uphill from here for his squad.. Our kids did not quit, all played hard throughout the entire game, he said. Out of the 26 we dressed, over half of them played their rst varsity football game it was a good learning experience for all of them; they learned the speed of the game. After Ranies two touchdowns put the Gators ahead 14-0 going into the second quarter, junior Brett Satter eld scampered for a 59 yard score and a 20-0 lead. Seahawk senior quarterback Logan McLeod, handing off to senior runner Alex Causey, junior Cole Wheeler and sophomore Trenton Lee, then drove the Seahawks into Seahawks put preseason loss behind themThursday, August 29, 2013 Page 11 Sports BRIEFS PHOTOS BY DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The TimesTop: The Franklin County Seahawk line prepares to square up against Wewa.

The workshop brought together all the important players in the game being played out now in a changing housing market. Basically the market is doing well, said Gloria Salinard, director of the realtors association that serves Franklin and Gulf counties, out of ofces in a repurposed Avenue E building that succeeded where Dr. Photis Nichols long treated patients. Inventory is down. The market has stabilized, she said. Cash sales are up, and there are a lot less foreclosures in the inventory. Since cash sales are the trademark of well-heeled investors, and not the average lower and middle income household hoping for a doable 30-year mortgage, Salinards conference room bustled Saturday with representatives of affordable housing help. Amber Lowry, mortgage loan ofcer with Centennial Bank, was there, along with fellow staffers Brenda Ash and Joan Buckner, to handle banking questions and other private sector loan matters. Michael Ubias was there, a loan specialist from the USDA ofce of rural development, in Marianna, to talk about the low interest loan program for low income people. Lowry said the bank works with a range of options from FHA to Veterans Administration, even with some products by USDA. The banks interest rate varies, but are at historically low levels. Government issuers typically offer a xed rate loan, which Ubias said has been running in the neighborhood of 4.25 percent for a 30-year mortgage. Ubias said his ofce has not had a lot of activity in the county over the past ve years, no more than you can count on the ngers of one hand. The Quincy ofce closed ve years ago. The terms can be 33years with a USDA loan, and more exible, but credit standards are fairly consistent with what a lending institution would require, Ubias said. He said the major advantage is that low income people can qualify for a subsidy, and perhaps receive payment assistance, to meet the terms of their loan. He said its a no money down program, with federal funding tied to the Farm Bill now pending in Congress. Loans are not available to buy used mobile homes, although some money is available to repair mobile homes. Randall Webster, representing the Franklin County Community Development and Land Trust Corporation, said the land trusts original hope, to buy lots and work to keep the land value constant to keep the opportunity affordable, has evolved to where now they work mainly to nance existing homes. We still have a lot inventory, he said. About 24 quarter-acre lots, most donated by Apalachicola and Carrabelle. Steve Watkins serves as president of the land trust, with Cliff Butler as treasurer, the Rev. John Sink as secretary and Ella Bond and Lori Switzer both on the board. Webster said the land trust can work to prequalify people for loans, with credit history being the number one stumbling block to getting people into a home. These are correctible. We can get some plan to straighten it out, he said. We want them to look at homes they can afford. We want to get them to be in the right price range. Bond was there for Habitat for Humanity, and said the group is nishing its fourth home in Eastpoint, and has a fth one under construction, also in Eastpoint. Switzer was there to share for the countys SHIP program, which has money available to rehabbing existing homes and for down payment assistance for buyers. A representative of Butler Insurance was there as well. Its a really good cooperative spirit, said Webster. I have hope. Carol Bareld, who helped get these home ownership workshops started with the TIGERS youth program she oversees, said she was pleased with day. We actually worked with over 16 families and they all left encouraged and some with grins on their faces, said Bareld. I like this kind of stuff, helping people to achieve their goals.

It is written by Tevis Page, who volunteered this summer at the Times ofce. We welcome her to the newspaper pages, and we hope readers help shape her experience, and that of other talented young people who like to write and take photos, as they blossom into young journalists. First day of senior year, was both exciting and nerve-racking. The high school bell schedule had changed; we now had breakfast before rst period, instead of after. It was really peculiar to go there before my rst class. We have a new principal, Mr. Bidwell, who taught most of my freshman class four years ago. It has been amazing to see him climb to his goal, as we have climbed to our graduation. The rst day has always been reserved for senior schedule changes. This year was no different; the library was full of seniors jabbering about their schedules that read Spanish II (while not having a Spanish teacher to teach it) and what had happened the past summer. It was a bittersweet moment to see everyone together again, for I knew it would be the last time we all stood together to change our schedules in high school. Four years ew by so fast. It is something we all dreamed of for so many years, but never expected it to sneak up on us this quickly. As I began to get the hang of things, I realized that for two years I had consistently begged for a teachers aide position. This year, I did not get one, I got two! It is not as easy as I had imagined it to be, but I would not want it any other way. My teachers are amazing. They do not stop caring when the nal bell rings, but rather give us their personal phone numbers and tell us to never hesitate to call. They are just as excited about this year as we are. If this week is an indication of how the rest of the year will be, I believe this year will be amazing. Go Hawks! HAWK TALKAn amazing school year lies ahead Schools
