During a discussion of the proposed TDC Grant and Marketing Budget, a motion to renew contracts for the visitor centers also passed, unanimously. TDC board member Chester Reese said the recommendations for renewal were based on past performance. TDC board member Beverly Hewitt was opposed “We talk about how to increase jobs. I truly believe we need to look at individual contracts. Some of them are open-ended,” said Judy Stokowski, a representative of the Water Street Hotel. “We should ask, ‘Are there new people in the community that can do some of this work?’ I think we owe it to county residents and to our young people to look at contracts and see if we can we save money by renegotiation.” District 1 Commissioner and board Chairman Pinki Jackel said reviewing vendor contracts would not necessarily save money because some vendors, for example the visitor centers, receive a preset stipend. “Some of what our contract providers do is an ongoing service,” she said. “We feel like they do a good job. Every penny that we spend is open to public records. You can make a public records request and see every cent. It is somewhat a question of integrity to say the public doesn’t know how we spend money.” Board member Cal Allen of Carrabelle said, “There’s a difference between street talk and seat talk. When we’re sitting in these seats, we have information. We have the law before us.” The discussion turned to changes in marketing of events sponsored by nonpro ts. TDC Director Curt Blair said, under the new scheme, each of the 28 not-for-pro t groups requesting funds for 51 events would receive $500 in advertising assistance, regardless of how many events they planned for the year. He said with the end of BP funding, the TDC City hikes millage, rules out raises By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Apalachicola property owners will see more than a half-mill increase in their taxes, and city workers won’t be getting raises, if the tentative budget for the 201314 scal year is approved in two weeks. By unanimous consent at the rst budget hearing Tuesday night, city commissioners OK’d an almost $2 million budget that will see the millage rate rising from 9.0090 to 9.6852 mills, an increase of about 7.5 percent. By adopting the rollback rate, city commissioners will raise next year about $1.083 million in property taxes, only about $8,000 less than the $1.091 million brought in this year. The new millage rate, if adopted at the second and nal budget hearing at 6 p.m. Sept. 24, will bring Apalachicola less than one-third of 1 mill away from the 10-mill cap speci ed in state law. Once the $140,000 raised by the half-cent sales tax, the $237,000 raised by utility franchise fees and taxes and a variety of other fees and rents are factored in, the proposed budget will raise about $1.82 million, about $18,000 less than was PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE TIMES This 10-foot, 10-inch alligator was removed from St. George Island Plantation last week. APALACHICOLA CITY COMMISSION LATER, GATOR Huge nuisance alligator removed from Plantation By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com An enormous alligator, 10 feet, 10 inches and weighing 320 pounds, parted company with the St. George Island Plantation last week. Stan Kirkland, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said Don Davis, the alligator trapper who handles nuisance calls, got the call on Friday that the animal had been hanging out on the beach between Kumquat and Casa Del Mar for the past few days. “He got out there, and the gator was still there,” Kirkland said. “He was just lethargic; he wasn’t active.” Kirkland said the gator was a healthy male, with “nothing distinguishing, nothing remarkable.” Because there is no freshwater nearby, Kirkland speculated the gator likely came from the St. Vincent Island refuge and probably swam across the pass. Others in the Plantation have speculated the animal came from Little St George Island or from East Bay. Kirkland said Davis removed the alligator and then dispatched it out of the presence of onlookers. “The beauty of that nuisance program is that we don’t pay the trappers per se a salary. Their money comes from the sale of hides and meat,” Kirkland said. “Generally what they do is they have to be careful how the approach the gator. Most of time they use a noose around the head and jaws. The rst thing you have to do is immobilize, and take away their ability to open their jaws. “They’ll tie them up and get that mouth taped off, and they will dispatch the animal but not in front of the public,” he said. TDC renews vendor contracts, weigh vacancy See CITY A10 See GATOR A10 See TDC A5 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com Franklin County commissioners weren’t unanimous when they last week tentatively approved a budget for the upcoming scal year, but they did get it done a little earlier than they did last year. The kind of standoff, prompted by commissioners quietly and purposefully avoiding seconding motions for budget and millage approval, did not go late into the night as it did last year. Instead, the commissioners divided along philosophical lines and approved at the rst public hearing Sept. 5 a millage increase of about 8 percent, as they are poised to raise it from the current 5.9637 to 6.4705 mills. The proposed budget would raise about $10.56 million in ad valorem property tax proceeds, an increase of a little more than $717,000 than this year’s $9.84 million. In a report from Clerk of Courts Marcia Johnson’s of ce presented at the outset of the meeting, Erin Grif th, in the nance of ce, said the new budget has about $310,000 in budget increases; an increase of $100,000 because of an emergency expenditure of reserves to combat a glut of mosquitoes following oods, and to replace a failing attachment on the knuckle boom truck; and the inability to collect a $100,000 repayment from Weems Memorial Hospital that commissioners had asked for one year ago. In addition, she said, the county saw County nixes indigent care tax vote Franklin County commissioners quietly, and unanimously, last week shelved a proposal they planned to place on the November ballot to levy a half-cent sales tax to cover the cost of health care for the medically indigent. Commissioner Smokey Parrish opened the Sept. 5 special meeting, set up to review ballot language for the measure, with a motion to kill the proposal completely. Commissioner William Massey immediately seconded it. “I made the motion to proceed with this, and after further study, I don’t feel like it’s the right thing to do at this time,” Parrish said.

As part of a fundraising project to increase the hold ings of conservation land, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection proposed the sale of more than 5,000 acres of land on Aug. 20. Under the Florida Wa ter and Land Conservation Amendment, conserva tion lands are dened as “wetlands and forests; sh and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches and shores; out door recreational lands; working farms and ranch es; and historic or geologic sites.” The largest parcel of land proposed for sale in the county is a 26-acre tract at the end of Bluff Road that is currently a part of the Box-R Wildlife Manage ment Area. Four other parcels, rang ing in size from 6.4 acres to .04 acres, are part of Tate’s Hell State Forest. All are coastal tracts between Yent Bayou and the Tillie Miller Bridge. An aerial photo graph shows the tracts are near property that has al ready been developed. The technical descrip tions of the parcels are as follows: In Box-R Wildlife Man agement Area, FWC-BX 1 26.0 Franklin County Sec tion 021, Township 08-S, Range 08-W. In Tate’s Hell State For est, FLMA_108 6.4 Franklin County Section 008, Town ship 08-S, Range 05-W; FLMA_110 0.4 Franklin County Section 007, Town ship 08-S, Range 05-W; FLMA_112 6.2 Franklin County Section 003, Town ship 08-S, Range 05-W and FLMA_113 1.0 Franklin County Section 003, Town ship 08-S, Range 05-W. Assistant County Plan ner Mark Curenton said lots smaller than one acre must have been platted be fore 1978 to be buildable. After public outcry across the state, more than 400 acres were removed last week from the original list of surplus lands, but the 40 acres in Franklin County remain on the block. A press release on the land sale said the state was seeking to generate $50 mil lion with the sale to add to a $20 million appropriation by the legislature to acquire more critical land parcels. The 2013 legislature re quired DEP to “create a process to determine which land is no longer needed for conservation purposes.” Working with the Trust for Public Land, real estate brokers Cushman & Wake eld, state agencies and other non-prot groups, DEP developed “a scienti cally and environmentally based (model) to assess the entire inventory of conser vation lands.” The DEP release said more than 65 criteria were identied and weighted to assess the properties. Ex amples included spring pro tection value, proximity to existing development, sink hole features, recreation value, oodplain protection and protection of imperiled species. Critics of the program say the list was compiled too rapidly and without thorough consideration of land value and ecological importance. DEP said it would hold workshops in to get pub lic input about properties proposed for sale. All par cel sales will ultimately re quire the DEP Acquisition and Restoration Council to make a recommendation and the Board of Trustees to determine that the land is no longer needed for con servation purposes.

LOIS SWOBODA | The Times At the Sept. 5 Carrabelle city commission meeting, one incumbent returned to her seat and a new commissioner made her debut. After the regular business was complete, incumbent Brenda La Paz, right, and newcomer Olivia Messer Massey, left, were sworn in by City Clerk Keisha Smith. La Paz, who oversaw Carrabelle’s water and sewer department as she completed the last two years of a four-year term, was elected for a full fouryear term on Sept. 3. Massey, granddaughter of Carrabelle Mayor Curley Messer, center, was also elected for a four-year term.

Schneider said the city welcomed all new businesses and appreciated May’s efforts to make use of historic structures and beautify Carrabelle’s downtown. May bought the building in 2012 and renovated it, placing his residence above the gallery. The brick structure was built circa 1920 and housed a service station and later a boarding house.

Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked Grifth to detail the $486,000 in cuts the county commission made at last month’s budget work shop. Grifth said the county’s de cision to contract exclusively with Capital Health Plan for its health insurance had saved $324,000, the county health department request had been sliced from $86,190 to $50,000, an $80,000 grant match for an access road to the St. George island shing pier was taken out of the bridge maintenance fund, and the parks and recreation bud get request had been trimmed by $30,000. Grifth also noted the budget increase of $310,000 was because of a $95,000 cost shift from the state for Medicaid responsibility, a cost shift from the state of 3 percent for state retirement, and other small increases in department budgets, of about $106,000 in county budgets and about $88,000 in the budgets of the constitutional ofcers. After Chair Cheryl Sanders opened the hearing for public com ments, several residents came forward. Ben Houston, from Bald Point, said he bought property in 2001 and moved down in 2006, after coming here since the early ’60s. A retired food technologist from the Univer sity of Georgia, Houston said he had done work for Quaker Oats, General Mills and other multina tional companies, including travel in South America. “In the real world of business, a manager has to be ready for the ups and downs of the business cycles,” he said. “One of the main duties of a manager is to work with his people to keep it in the black. “(They say) ‘The truck is in the ditch; that is why we hired you. It is up to you, or we will shut this plant down,’” Houston said. “I see a lack of discipline the county has in handling its business. Please start considering smart options rather than just increasing taxes. Tough times equal tough decisions.”LOCKl L EY, FEIf F ER l L OCK HORNS Alan Feifer, who represents the Concerned Citizens of Franklin County tax watchdog group, was typically blunt in observing what had happened earlier, when the county’s oystermen had reported on the state of the bay. “You’d have to be almost tone deaf and have a total disconnect af ter listening to the oystermen,” he said. “They’re in such bad shape and you have such empathy. Isn’t that a disconnect? Doesn’t that sound wrong? It’s like you say one thing and do another.” Feifer said the commissioners suffer from “a culture of inaction” and that the previous budget work shop was cut off before debate. “Who do we serve? Do we serve ourselves sitting up there, or do we serve the people of Franklin Coun ty?” he asked. Feifer said he his group had made several suggestions for cost cutting, which he described as “easy low-hanging fruit. “There’s just no appetite to talk about this stuff,” he said. “Where is the leadership tonight? In this one thing you can affect keeping taxes the same. There are hundreds of thousands of dollars of low-hang ing fruit. Your answer could be silence. It’s awful to say to them (the oystermen) that we’re going to double slap you. Where do you get the nerve?” Jackel told Feifer some of his ideas had been considered. “There has to be a consensus of this board to seriously engage in those cuts from wherever they come from,” she said. “We have to be in agree ment, and I have not seen the agreement in this board to make the cuts. “I said publically the budgetary process in our county is broken,” she said. “I think there needs to be some committee work in place. Committees need to be formed early in the year, in February and March. It’s not fair to tear their budgets apart in 15 minutes. “We need to invest more time in working with them, instead of being the people sitting up here with big axes,” Jackel said. “For me to come in as a commissioner does not translate to working as a committee. It does not translate to moving us to a consensus.” Though all ve commissioners have supported a plan to earmark $200,000 for an $1,100 across-theboard pay increase for the 165 county workers, Jackel said she had a problem with budgets that have included raises before the across-the-board raise. “I believe county employees do need an increase, every one of them. I think it needs to be meted out on a fair and equal basis,” she said. “This year it will not be done on a fair and equal basis.” Commissioner Noah Lockley took issue with Feifer’s suggestion that commissioners had ignored his ideas. “I considered some of them. Some of them we moved on and some we didn’t,” he said. “I don’t think they be that good at this time.” Lockley said Feifer had acted “like a child” in his outrage. “We’re not playing up here; this is a busi ness situation,” he said. “I’ve done what I did, and I’m satised.” Commissioner Smokey Parrish noted that “it takes a consensus of the board to move some of this stuff. One commissioner is not al lowed; it takes the whole board. Some of the (Feifer) proposals I don’t think need to be acted on personally.” Parrish said the commissioners had taken heat for their decision to go entirely with Capital Health Plan, which lacks providers in Bay County. “A lot of people had established relations with Panama City,” he said. “I caught trouble about this moving everybody to Tallahassee. We made the cut, and we’re catch ing a little ak for it. “I haven’t had a raise in my pri vate business for 10 years; we have to deal with what we have to deal with,” Parrish said. “Things are not good in the economy. It’s tough, it’s a tough one for everybody. The bills keep coming, but the money’s not there.” Gail Riegelmayer, who also speaks for the Concerned Citizens group, said she supported pay rais es, but not across the board. “The way to consider increases is based on performance. Across-the-board do not benet anybody, even the people who work hard. When you do blanket raises that is a disincen tive for your superstars and, people who do a good job. (They ask) ‘Why should I bust my butt? And they get the same rate that I get?’ “It should not be based on seniority, it should be based on contributions,” she said. “I do not deny anybody a raise as long as they’ve earned it. You pay for performance.”NN O APPETITE fF OR fF URTHER CUTS Jackel suggested she was con cerned about funding the health department at the same rate as Gulf County, even though Franklin is a smaller county. But Sanders said the money would be used for much-needed dental services, and no further cut was made. Lockley asked to look at the library budget, and wanted the monthly rent subsidy kept at $1,000, not boosted to $2,700. “I’m not against that library (but) you don’t need no 13 acres of land. I’m for the building, that’s where the library is, that other stuff you don’t need it. Sell the land and pay for the library,” Lockley’s colleagues did not back his proposal. Jackel also asked for taking funds out of capital outlay to help lower the millage rate, but Grifth cautioned about using a one-time revenue source to cover recur ring expenditures, because those expenditures must be covered in subsequent years and require a further millage increase. Feifer came forward to pro pose a 2 percent across-the-board decrease in spending. “We can al ways shift money around later,” he said, noting that the cut would re duce the budget by $210,000. “Try to give taxpayers a little help this year. Move forward with that and call it a day. It tells the public, ‘Yes, we can do something even though it’s late in the game.’” Parrish said making up for it later would mean taking money out of reserves and he was against that. “That reserve to me is basi cally sacred,” he said. “It’s got to be something detrimental to the people of the county to mess with that reserve. It’s not something just to be spent, to throw money around.” COUNTY from page A1 for the half-cent sales tax, to go to fund medically indigent care for county residents. If passed with a simple majority vote on Nov. 5, 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. Commissioner Pinki Jackel said she supported the move to shelve the half-cent sales tax idea for now, and then turned to a proposal now on the commis sioners’ table to bring to voters a plan to approve a doubling of the current bed tax, from 2 to 4 percent. She said members of the Tourist Development Council, strong proponents of the bed tax increase on overnight rentals, have said they would like to re view the ballot language for the measure in advance of it going forward. The commissioners had con sidered placing the bed tax plan on the November ballot but now say they won’t go forward with a vote at least until next year. Shuler said unlike the sales tax for the medically indigent, which has specic times when it can go into effect, an increase in the bed tax can be set to go into ef fect at any time, or the default of the rst day of the second month after the ordinance accompany ing the ballot measure goes into effect. “It’s at the discretion of the board (of county commission ers),” he said. Jackel moved “that we table the matter until we can let the TDC board review the ballot language and the timing of how this would come into effect,” and Massey seconded. The motion carried 4-1, with Noah Lockley opposed. “I’m going to be against that because some of the people, they’re not represented on the tourist board,” he said, referring to the stance of several owners of Apalachicola hotels, motels and beds-and-breakfasts that a representative be seated on the board. “I think everybody should be represented on the board, at least one. I’m against until we revamp.” INDIGENT from page A1 See COUNTYCOUNTY A5 — By David Adlerstein

We should welcome our military neighbors How embarrassing! Why did The Times broadcast the lack of patriotism of a few residents of this county in a large-type headline across Page 1 stating No To War Games? Less than 1 percent of us do our duty to America by serving a stint in the U.S. military. Now, with necessary budget cuts, it is logical that communities close to existing military facilities that can help in the training mission ought to do it. We actually should be proud to do it. Its not like we will be invaded by a U.S. Army armored division with a thousand track vehicles. The slight inconvenience, which even the most enthusiastic users of Tates Hell State Forest will experience, compared with the frequent and long deployments of members of the military, isnt even deserving of debate. We should be welcoming our military neighbors from nearby. Maybe well hear the sounds of C-130s, helicopters and afterburners. Be glad we can hear, even at a distance, the sound of the strength of American power that has kept us free. They may be called games, but military training is anything but a game. It is preparation for a fight to the death. Sincerely, Tom Stover U.S. Army 65-67 Why deny military use of Tates Hell? Mayday! Mayday!! Mayday!!! For the bene t of the few who do not know, this is the universal distress call for help and assistance. Yes, someone, somebody come to our aid. We need it in the worst way. The Franklin County Board of County Commissioners opens their meetings with the Pledge of Allegiance. In a recent meeting, the Pledge was followed by the adoption of a motion to deny the United States military the use of Tates Hell swamp for training purposes. Why? It might interfere with a wild hog hunt or dogs chasing a deer. Give me a break! One last thought. Maybe the commission should invite Jane Fonda to join their movement. Willie Norred Senior center should consider thoughtful changes The Carrabelle Senior Center is again at a point where it cannot go forward as it is. Too many problems. I am reminded of a saying we chanted together as we left Weight Watchers meetings. If you always do what you always did, then youll always get what you always got. With serious change in mind, I have been talking to many people in different walks of life. The following are changes and input re ected by more than one person. They are changes to consider thoughtfully. In order to make these changes truly happen, a senior center director with a proven grant writing record would need to be hired on the condition that grants would be written to cover the salary and more. If money had to be borrowed from another account for this to happen, it follows the idea that you have to invest to grow forward. More usage of the Senior Center by a broader base of people would be encouraged. Some of these ideas are in place but need to be expanded. Hire an experienced director who would write grants and recruit a volunteer coordinator. Less tables, less emphasis on the Thursday lunch. Consider precooked meals with less salt, less fat. Convenient, permanent low stage with portable podium and folding chairs for plays, meetings, exercise, cooking and many other kinds of demonstrations. Invite musicians, etc. Meeting area for 25 people minimum with a good sound system. TV room in the unused of ces with lamps and comfortable seating Biweekly movies with snacks Trips, some of which require walking and a level of tness and some of which do not. Offer occasional special programs to people in a younger age bracket with the idea that people who use it younger, will use it older. And such activities might help those who are somehow put off by the senior part of the Senior Center. Communal garden Make the center a wireless hotspot. Offer classes on anything from digital photography to Encore programs from the community college. Membership list Many of these things are controversial, are being attempted currently or have been tried in the past. A good vibrant director with people skills is the key. Change is needed. Respectfully, Marian Morris Eternal Memory Nine Eleven burns in our memory twelve years After terrorists attacked without warning; And we mourn the loss of those innocent victims who died that tragic morning. Our Nation was outraged and battle scarred, but survived; And from that evil act our spirit of patriotism and brotherly love survived. When our countrys freedom was threatened, we answered the call; to rid the world of terrorism and preserve Liberty for all. Well wage this war against terrorists satanic forces of hate; Until the healing power of love brings peace to the whole human race. We shall forever remember the brutal attack on our beloved land; And thank the Lord for our God-given blessings to be an American! God bless America. Mary Westberg On Aug. 15, the Department of Health and Human Services released a report that if fully implemented, could close hundreds of rural hospitals across the nation, endangering access to health care for millions of rural patients, and actually costing the taxpayer more money. My reason for writing is that our hospital, Weems Memorial Hospital, is a critical access hospital (CAH) that could be affected by actions resulting from these recommendations. We are located in Apalachicola and have a history of providing needed care to the citizens of Franklin County. This is possible because of our designation as a CAH. As you know, our county is a very hardworking, yet impoverished, county with many health needs here on the bay. Our continued existence is vital to this effort. I mention this to speak of the precarious nature of facilities such as ours, which not only provide needed services to the communities we serve, but are also cornerstones of economic development. As the second largest employer in the county, we provide $4.84 million in wages to the area with a net impact of $6.34 million after a 1.31 multiplier effect. Additionally, our employees generate $1.8 million in retail sales and over $120,000 in local and state sale tax. In particular, I am concerned about the potential decerti cation of CAHs such as ours based upon the distance requirement, depending on what a nal mileage gure would be. If the 35-miles rule were to stand without state exemption, we would be at risk of losing our CAH certi cation and therefore would be threatened with closure. A more moderate 10-mile rule has been discussed and would not affect us, but I remain concerned about the erosion of health care in our rural areas regardless of a particular mileage requirement and therefore oppose any legislative effort to decertify CAHs. The HHS report is wrong. Eliminating critical access hospitals does not save money. CAHs save taxpayer dollars. Despite CAHs representing over 22 percent of all community hospitals, Medicare expenditures to CAHs are less than 5 percent of the Medicare hospital budget. CAHs provide cost-effective primary care. In fact, in comparing identical Medicare services in a rural setting to an urban setting, the cost of care in a rural setting is on average 3.7 percent less expensive. This focus on primary care, as opposed to specialty care, saves the Medicare program approximately $2.2 billion each year. Its approximately $7.2 billion in annual savings to Medicare if the average cost per urban bene ciary were equal to the average cost per rural bene ciary. The 34-page report on critical access hospitals would eradicate individual state determinations on which small, rural hospitals are critical necessary providers in a state, by overriding state decisions with complete federal authority. This report seeks to kill rural health care by shutting down as many as 70 percent of a states rural hospitals. The HHS report would create huge voids in access to health care in rural America. Under this report, using Missouri as an example, roughly 70 percent of the rural critical access hospitals in that state alone would lose their designation and face possible closure. Does that sound rational to anyone living outside of Washington, D.C.? The report shows that about 50 percent of the CAHs that would lose their designation under this scheme would do so because they are too close to another CAH that would also lose its status. This will likely result in the closure of both facilities. This is the fastest way to ration care to Americas most vulnerable seniors. Also under this scheme, a CAH would lose its status even if the other hospital did not treat the same type of patient. In fact, 7 percent of the other facilities do not serve typical rural Medicare patients because they are psychiatric facilities, rehabilitative hospitals, childrens hospitals or veteran facilities. Even the HHS report admits that meaningful access to care is dependent on more than just distance between providers. We agree. It is important to remember: 77 percent of the 2,050 rural counties in the United States are designated as primary care Health Professional Shortage Areas (commonly referred to as HPSAs). Rural hospitals and clinics have a signi cantly harder time recruiting and retaining medical and administrative staff because of inequities in the Hospital Wage Indexes and Geographic Practice Cost Index. Rural areas of the United States have fewer than half as many primary care physicians per 100,000 people as urban areas. More than 50 percent of patients in rural areas of the United States travel at least 20 miles to receive specialty medical care, compared to only 6 percent of patients in urban areas of U.S. Critical access hospitals are critical to the rural economy. CAHs create approximately 138,000 jobs. CAHs are often the largest or second largest employer in a rural community. The average CAH creates 107 jobs and generates $4.8 million in payroll annually and can mean as much as 20 percent of a rural economy. If a rural hospital closes, severe economic decline in the rural community is the result. Soon after, physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other health care providers in the community will be forced to leave. Patients will have to travel farther distances for care or will delay receiving care, resulting in poorer health outcomes. Businesses, families and retirees will not relocate to a rural area if quality health care is not available. What are critical access hospitals? CAHs are important health care access points for rural patients across the country. Initially created by Congress in 1997 to curb the tide of rural hospital closures, CAHs are small, rural hospitals speci cally designated as important access to care points for rural patients. More than 62 million rural residents rely on critical access hospitals, yet much of this population is scattered over 90 percent of the nations landmass. Rural populations are vulnerable. On average this population is older, sicker and poorer than individuals in urban areas. The Department of Health and Human Services states, rural areas have higher rates of poverty, chronic disease, and uninsurance, and millions of rural Americans have limited access to a primary care provider. Twenty percent of the population lives in rural America, yet only 9 percent of physicians practice in rural areas. Seventyseven percent of the 2,050 rural counties in the U.S. are primary care HPSAs. More than 50 percent of rural patients have to travel 60 miles or more to receive specialty care. Critical access hospitals achieve high levels of performance, according to stands for quality, patient satisfaction and operational ef ciency, for the types of care most relevant to rural communities. Most CAHs struggle nancially. In fact, more than 41 percent of CAHs operate at a nancial loss. I urge the citizens of Franklin County to contact our state and federal legislators urging them to oppose legislation or rule making that would target CAHs for elimination or reduction in reimbursement and instead to seek ways of strengthening health care in rural Florida.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, September 12, 2013 could no longer afford to award small grants as has been done in the past. TDC Administrative As sistant Fran Edwards said to save money, the TDC would purchase blocks of advertis ing in media outlets. Cindy Clark of Bay Me dia, the design rm charged with creating ads for the notfor-prots, said ads would be displayed during the month before the event. The notfor-prots will not pay an ad ditional fee for these ads. Several members of the audience expressed con cerns that the new system of advertising would not reach their target market. “The not-for-prots are really going to suffer,” said Terry Kemp of the St. George Island Lighthouse Association. “We spent near ly $2,000 on advertising for the (Island) Tour of Homes last year.” In a telephone interview, Clark said “advertising as sistance consists of a combi nation of print, videography and internet assistance. The estimated value (of the ad vertising package) is more than $500. Staff will be pre senting a recommended list of local and regional adver tising venues as identied by the grant applicants. We’re trying hard to accommodate requests by event organiz ers to individually advertise their event.” Jackel told the TDC, “with so many events com ing to the board and the amount of money dwindling from cycle to cycle, this was the only way. I think there’s a lot of clarication we need to do. We really need to nail this down for everybody. I’d like to see it in a written narra tive distributed at the (Sept. 18) marketing meeting.” The board also unani mously passed a motion to renew all sustaining and seed grants in the 201314 budget. Seed grants of $10,000 go to Apalachicola’s Center for History Culture and the Arts, housed in the former Cotton Exchange and the Carrabelle History Museum. Sustaining grants of $20,000 support the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum, the Crooked River Light house, The Dixie Theatre, the Raney House Museum and The St. George Island Lighthouse.EASTPOINT VISITOR Ce E NTe E R Next, Jackel raised the topic of a visitor center for Eastpoint to be located in the former Florida Highway Patrol building at 731 U.S. 98. “One thing that needs to be added (to the budget) is a visitor center in Eastpoint,” she said. Blair said the funding was in the general budget. Hewitt, who holds the seat earmarked for the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce, said she had “several phone calls from concerned citizens that it’s not money well spent to put a visitor center in an area with no focal point.” Jackel said the county commission “has discussed the use of the building and approved the search for $90,000 by the TDC.” Blair offered further de tails on the funding. “Every year we have (money left af ter the budget is met). Over the years, we’ve built up a re serve. I’m sure that’s in the neighborhood of $150,000, and we’re going to look at that. I can’t tell you how much more there is. It kind of depends how the summer plays out.” Hewitt said, “most of the other centers are housed in buildings owned by cham bers.” Jackel said the St. George Island visitor cen ter is housed in a county building. Hewitt asked who would maintain the Eastpoint building, and Jackel said “it is my understanding that whoever occupies the build ing will pay for that.” Reese, who is from Carra belle, said “talking about the visitor center, I think it has to do with vision. I think the county commission looked at it and said here’s a central area that may transition into something that was for the whole county rather than a location. It’s something that has to be developed. I think it’s worth the initiative. “We’re the Franklin County TDC. That’s what we’re trying to do, is develop tourism. We are not a rubber stamp council,” he said. “I kind of started the Eastpoint visitor center idea,” Jackel said. “I feel very strongly about this. First of all, that is a beautiful property with a view of the water. It’s an open door into Franklin County. With the proper signage, that is the front door of visitors com ing into Franklin County. It’s an educational opportu nity. Something that we can do that establishes historic nature of the county for the maritime trades and for seafood. “Ninety thousand dollars is a drop in the bucket to the thousands of dollars we’re pouring into (Apalachicola). A little spit and polish goes a long way and it will create jobs. It will be run like a busi ness; it will all be worked out. We will not get ripped off. Eastpoint is one of the most beautiful gems we have, a diamond in the rough.” Jackel said she is in ne gotiation with the “bank that owns most of the waterfront property” in Eastpoint. She said removing derelict build ings is under discussion. TDC board member Paul Parker of Alligator Point said the additional visitor center is important. “People come off the island to eat in a res taurant or buy gas and they can use it to get oriented (in the county),” he said. “(The county) has so lit tle property, and these little properties we can get back are important. We need to create jobs,” Jackel said.COLLINS TO STe E P DOWN At the same meeting, Alice Collins of St. George Island, who has served on the TDC since its inception in 2005, announced that she would retire from the board. Reese moved to adver tise for a replacement, and Frank Cook of Apalachicola seconded. Stokowski said the bed tax providers of Apalachic ola requested a seat on the TDC. She asked the board to consider an amendment to replace Collins with an Apalachicola lodging provider. “In my opinion, for this board to make this change, we need a legal opinion,” Jackel said. “This document has not gone before the county attorney. I believe there has to be a public hear ing to change the ordinance. This is tabled for today until we can get clarication.” Reese objected to the request, pointing out that Carrabelle and St. George Island also have hotels. Sto kowski then asked that the advertisement for a replace ment for Collins be tabled until the request could be considered. “It’s up to the motioners to withdraw,” Jackel said. Lynn Spohrer, owner of Apalachicola’s Coombs House Inn, said “we’re not trying to exclude Carra belle. Apalachicola housing has never had a seat on the TDC in eight years. We’re not asking for a change of ordinance, just special consideration.” Jackel said “it would have been fairer to look at this as an agenda item.” Reese said “you are as free as anyone else to nomi nate someone. This is an open deal; it’s not for any cartel or group to say you need to elect one of us.” Hewitt said, “I think what they’re saying is that Alliga tor Point and Carrabelle have had representatives. Apalachicola has never had a seat.” Hewitt said she repre sented the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce with members in Apalachicola, Eastpoint and on St. George Island. “I have been on this board since the beginning, and we have examined every appli cation that came through,” Collins said. “We have never excluded Apalachicola. I think you should all apply.” The motion to adver tise the vacancy stood and passed unanimously.

So that’s sort of a hypocriti cal position to put it in.” Massey interjected that this was “because you like to spend it too,” a veiled ref erence to expenditures of county money on projects within Jackel’s district. But she brushed off the com ment, noting that “I’m a woman, I like to shop. My mother did that to me. I’m stuck with loving to shop.” Jackel continued to push for the 1 percent cut. “I believe anybody can cut 1 percent, if you ask for $1 you can leave with 99 cents. I don’t think you’re going to go away terribly dissatised. “These are numbers in black and white, but they are faces and they are ser vices. It’s not easy to take a hard line, and I choose to do that because I believe that we can have our taxes at a level rate. I do not be lieve we can do it tonight, but I think this board going forward to next year has to send them (department heads) that message early in the year so they know how to plan for budget time. So we have sent a clear con cise message that we are in agreement and holding hands as a board.” The commissioners weren’t holding hands as a board when it came time to approve the millage. Lock ley said he wanted a unani mous vote, and his col leagues appeared to agree, as Parrish’s motion died for lack of a second. After a return from a break, the same scenario recurred, but this time Jackel appeared willing to break the logjam. “I am going to do some thing that’s probably going to surprise everybody, but I’m going to say that I said that I would uphold the law when I took this job and I’m not mandated for a 5-0 vote. We don’t operate by super majority on this board. “We have a legal obliga tion to meet tonight and if this was the nal budget meeting I would not be con sidering seconding Com missioner Parrish’s motion so we could make a vote on this tonight. But I am going to consider it because I’m not going to let this board suffer through stalemate tonight. Last year we were here to 10 p.m. and we didn’t change anything. “When it comes down to the nal vote on this budget, if it is still the mill age rate that is tonight, I will not support it. That’s the bottom line for me. It is not nal, it can change, I will bring back a list of suggested cuts to the nal meeting that will equal the millage that we posted and collected last year. “I want all the com missioners to understand that I’m not supportive of this being the nal millage rate. I am conicted in do ing this. In many ways it is an excuse to leave tonight and not resolve a problem, it can be viewed that way,” she said. Massey interjected quickly, with the question, “Are you going to bring back the stuff where there are cuts at?” and then quickly seconded the motion. “Is there going to be commitment on the part of this board to examine cuts? Are we really going to take a hard look at cuts and be gin with a 2 percent cut?” asked Jackel. “I ain’t looking at a 2 per cent,” Lockley said. The motion to raise the millage passed 3-2, with Lockley and Jackel opposed. Lockley then moved to approve the budget, second ed by Parrish and it carried 4-1, with Jackel opposed.

Jesse Cardwell is the son of Danny and Wendy Earnest of Hosford and the father of Maison Scott Cardwell of Bristol. Jesse is a member of the Lolley family of Eastpoint. Amber Holton is the daughter of Reedy and Charlene Holton of Carrabelle, and the mother of Brianna Renee Sutcliffe, also of Carrabelle. Amber is a family member of the Golden family of Eastpoint. The two will be joined in holy matrimony on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, at 4 p.m. The ceremony and reception will be held at the couple’s church of worship, Carrabelle Christian Center, 142 River Road, Carrabelle. All family and friends are invited to attend. On Saturday, cryptozoologist and author Scott Marlowe visited Downtown Books in Apalachicola to sign copies of “The Cryptid Creatures of Florida,” meet with fans and discuss several upcoming works. A cryptozoologist studies reports of unknown animals not universally accepted by the scientic community and sightings of animals believed to be extinct. Examples include the chupacabra, the Loch Ness monster, the ivory-billed woodpecker and Sasquatch. Marlowe has made a career of seeking out curious critters and writing about his experiences. Shop owner Dale Julian said the signing was a great success and praised Marlowe for his ability to engage his audience. Marlowe said his readers can expect several new books over the next two years, including “Bigfoot Enigma,” which should be on the shelf by Christmas, and “Bigfoot in Art History,” expected to debut sometime next year. Also possibly in the future, is a book dealing with sports history that is still in the early stages of research and planning.

Thank you so much. Rodney, Sheila, Duke, Mindy It was over 30 years ago when I received a call from your daddy, Clifford Eugene Jones, exclaiming you had been born! You were his rst and only child and our (mine, your aunts Pauline, Pat and Carol and uncle Charles) rst niece. You were also your Grandma Pearlie’s rst grandchild, and we were all so excited and lled with joy unspeakable. Lord, Mamma must have told everybody in Apalachicola, including the inmates at the county jail. It was one of those happy moments in her life that we were able to experience together, as a family. She loved you to her end. Although most knew you by Shamone, your daddy called you “lady” for you were the apple of his eye and he became your world. The two of you were inseparable. I remember when he would bring you around your grandma’s house, and you would follow him around everywhere, and of course, that was perfectly ne with him. As the years went by, he still called you lady, and occasionally so did we. After he passed away, no one else ever called you lady, and I wonder why? His passing took a toll on you, and for that I am sorry that you had to experience such horric pain at such a tender age. Sadly, the same pain that my nieces and nephew, your children, are experiencing right now. You had no compass for the most part of your life and you wandered aimlessly for years. Years later, I observed you coming into your own. Evidence of that were your three lovely children, Jamarie, Shazz and Rontierra, who absolutely adored their mom. I remember the last time you visited me and we went shopping and I bought those blue high heeled shoes that you just had to have. You really rock those shoes, baby girl! Such a beautiful young lady you were, and how grateful I was to have spent that time with you, Auntie Pauline and Pat. I never imagined that only a few years later that those same two aunties would be by your bedside many times, during health challenges. I am so proud of Pauline and Pat and your granddaddy, Clifford E. Jones Sr., for dropping whatever they were doing to be by your bedsides each time. They kept me in the loop, and in my last phone conversation with you, I’ll always remember your very last words, “I love you auntie.” We had a great time. I will mostly remember our conversation about your desire to have all three of your children together and what you wanted for them in life and the plans you had for making sure they become a success in this life. You begin to cry, and so did I. As your auntie, and a mother, I felt your pain. As I held you, I could see that you too just needed someone to love and care for you and after all those absent years I am glad, for that moment, I was there. Moments later, as only she could do, Rontierra came running downstairs having completed her bath, brushed her teeth, said her prayers and came downstairs to give me and you a hug before you took her back upstairs to tuck her into bed. You raised her well. She did exactly what you had instructed her to do and in the order you gave instructions. I was really impressed with your motherly duties and wished at that moment, for those who didn’t know that part of you, to have seen you at one of the things you did well, and that was being a mother. You leave Jamarie, Shazz and Rontierra behind but rest assured I will assist with making sure they become the ladies and gentleman you prayed hoped for. RIP with your daddy, Lady. Love always, Auntie Brenda, Heather, Matt, and Brocky Boy Deborah “Deb” King, of Carrabelle, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013, at the age of 58. She was born July 11, 1955, in Atlanta, Georgia, to the late Robert E. and Nina Bernice King. She attended Campbell High School in Smyrna, Ga., and Mercer University and worked at United Family Life and The Hartford in Atlanta, Ga., in data entry and information technology. She always loved the Carrabelle area and made it her home in 2004. She quickly became involved in the community. She was an artist and a musician and enjoyed helping others. She is survived by her sister and brotherin-law, Pat (King) and Alan Lemmermann, and niece, Christina Lemmermann, of Caledonia, Miss.; and a niece and her husband, Victoria (Lemmermann) and Samuel Bobo of Ray City, Ga. She leaves behind many wonderful friends and church family members. She also leaves behind her precious pets, Cricket, Dixie and Willow. A memorial service will be held at the Carrabelle United Methodist Church at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 13, with the Rev. Aaron Batey ofciating. In lieu of owers, donations in her memory may be sent to The Carrabelle Food Pantry, P.O. Box 215, Carrabelle, FL 32322.DD eb King DD EB KIN gG John Webb, 56, of Apalachicola passed away at his home on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013. John was a lifelong commercial sherman and licensed contractor. He is survived by his wife Donna (Orr) Webb, of Apalachicola; daughter Cassie Lynn Webb, and two granddaughters Callie and Cayda, all of Minnesota; his mother Viola Razer; brother George Webb; sisters Debbie Molina and Barbara Gray, all of Anahuac, Texas; and sister Rebecca Fisher, of Baytown, Texas. He was preceded in death by his father, Clifford Razer; sister, Elizabeth Adam; and brothers Bobby Webb, Elby Gray and John Gray, all of Anahuac, Texas. He was also preceded in death by his loving and loyal animals, Snazzy, Fancy, Casper, Keemo and Grunt. He leaves behind his beloved dog Puddles and cat Mow-Mow. Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon, Sept. 7, at Living Waters Assembly. Visitation was on Saturday afternoon, at Living Waters Assembly. Interment was at Magnolia Cemetery. In lieu of owers, donations may be sent to Big Bend Hospice. John was loved by many and will be missed! John Webb JOHN WEBB From Staff Reports Fellowship BB aptist reprises ‘Clothes Giveaway’ Fellowship Baptist Church at 706 Ryan Drive in Carrabelle started something last year that will be repeated this year and hopefully every year to come. Fellowship had “Clothes GiveAway” on the church property facing Ryan Drive, and it was such a success and blessing that there will be another one this Saturday, Sept. 14, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. There will be clothes for all sizes for women, men and children. Come and enjoy a time of “treasure hunting.” The sources of the clothes are from areas all around us as well as here at home. No telling what you might nd. There may be some other “things” too. See you then. MM eals on Wheels welcomes new clients The Meals on Wheels program is available for Apalachicola and Eastpoint for eligible clients age 60 and over. If you are homebound and live alone or with others who need help with preparation of meals, you may be eligible for home-delivered meals through the Older Americans Act Program provided by Senior Services of Apalachicola. For more information, contact Debbie Sumner at Gulf County Senior Citizens in Port St. Joe at 229-8466. And the days grow short as we reach September. Don’t forget to mark your calendar for Sunday, Sept. 15. We will gather at Chillas Hall for our monthly covered dish luncheon. Serving begins at 1 p.m. Then on Saturday, Sept. 21, will be the Birthday Bash at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Come and enjoy the evening with your friends and neighbors. Party starts at 6 p.m. The Songbird, Ann Merrell and others will be on the karaoke. Hope you can make it. Your sugar x will be ready Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Lanark Village Boat Club. Orders will be from 9 to 11 a.m. Pray for the repose of the soul of Christina Marie Getz and strength and comfort for her family and her long-time friend Jim Lemmond. Chris and Jim were carpenters and worked well together. I used to drive them to the job sites. We will miss her a lot. When I started coming down to Lanark Village, you only needed to dial the last four numbers when making a call to local folks. All other calls were interstate long distance outside of the 697 exchange. In those days, our area code was 904. After the 1985 hurricanes, I called a meeting of the Concerned Citizens of Franklin County. We started the process of getting a-quarter-a-holler in place throughout the county. It took about 1 years, what with the calls and ballots. Then I went to the Public Service Commission meeting in Tallahassee and made the request. Our request was granted and, two weeks later, a commissioner called and asked if I would like to call Tallahassee free of charge. Sopchoppy, Crawfordville and Tallahassee are toll-free in parts of the county. Jim and Mary Ann Bove said to tell everyone hello. I talk to them now and then. Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and the housebound and remember, God’s last name is not damn. Until next time, God bless America, our troops, and the poor, homeless and hungry.

As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.” The Song of Songs 2:1-3 The rose of Sharon is a common name used for several unrelated plants. In our area, it is commonly identi ed as althea, properly named Hibiscus syriacus. Althea is de nitely not the original rose of Sharon, since it is native to East Asia. Scholars think the plant in the poem was probably Pancratium maritimum, a lily commonly known as the sea daffodil. Nevertheless, our althea is worthy of use in local gardens because it produces abundant blooms and grows remarkably well here. An early introduction to American gardens, it was probably carried over by Dutch or English colonials. Although naturally a multistemmed shrub, this plant can be trained through pruning to a single trunked “tree.” It can also be trained for espalier and hedges. Other than regular pruning to prevent weediness, this plant requires little attention. Watering and fertilizer should be kept to a minimum. Althea prefers full to partial sun in our area, is heatand salt-tolerant and likes dry feet. Though it is deciduous, it remains green most of the year here and can bloom year-round. It can be propagated by cuttings, but be aware that it will grow from seed and can produce numerous volunteer shoots. Unfortunately, these are generally hybrids lacking the characteristics of the parent plant including ower color. The commonest criticism of althea is that the color of the owers can be muddy, so be sure to choose your plant when it is in bloom. Flowers come in shades of red, pink, white and purple. The beautiful double althea pictured here is proof positive that cultivars with clear beautiful color are available. Althea can reach 10 feet in height. Dwarf varieties, which only grow to 6 feet tall, are available. Although they are strong growers, especially older plants may experience a variety of problems, most of which can be solved by pruning or adjusting water and fertilizer. The commonest pest of althea is aphids, which accumulate at the tips of stems, causing new growth to be misshapen. Aphids may cover the leaves with sticky honeydew, which turns black when infected by sooty mildew. Aphids can be dislodged with high-pressure water sprays or pruned off with infested foliage. Be sure to remove pruned greenery from the garden. Over-fertilizing increases aphid infestations. Japanese beetles are particularly fond of the owers. Leaf spot is a symptom of bacterial infection. Pick off and destroy the infected leaves. Canker can cause bright, reddish-orange fruiting bodies to appear on the bark. Prune out infected branches. Flowers are subject to fungus. After pruning a diseased plant, always clean tools in bleach before using on another plant. Bud drop can be caused by too much or too little water or over fertilization. The owers of althea, both dried and fresh, were traditionally used as a winter tea and contain abundant antioxidants. “Urban Forager” a website produced by the University of Georgia wrote, “Besides the obvious use as a garnish, the owers of Rose of Sharon can be chopped and added to dishes, or left whole for salads. They make colorful, edible, presentation cups for dips. The leaves are edible when cooked, and can be added to quiche or greens.” Unripe seedpods are also edible. Flower buds contain mucilage, a gooey medicinal compound made of polysaccharides.

At a meeting last week, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved an Oct. 1-21 supplemental season for red snapper in state waters. State waters in the Gulf span 9 nautical miles from the shoreline. Although the season is good news for private anglers, Pam Anderson, the operational manager at Capt. Anderson’s Marina in Panama City Beach, said charter boats that hold a federal reef sh permit still cannot harvest snapper in state waters when the federal season is closed. “Right now, it will help all of the private anglers for sure, and it will help all the charter boats that don’t have the federal reef sh permits like we do,” Anderson said. “Between the charter boats and the dive boats, we have about 25 that do have federal reef sh permits. They’ll be able to sh; they just won’t be able to harvest red snapper in state waters when (the season) is open.” However, Anderson said they’re still hopeful. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, which manages the species in federal waters, also is considering a fall snapper season. The council met in San Antonio last week but decided to delay the decision after new information about landings during the 2013 recreational red snapper season showed preliminary catch estimates were higher than expected. “If this data is true, it will likely be good for us in the long run,” said Anderson, who expressed frustration with the delayed decision. “We have so many customers right now waiting to hear whether snapper will be open Oct. 1 through 21,” she said. “If people know it’s open far enough in advance, it will bring folks to town. We de nitely want them to have the time to make plans.” U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland commended the FWC for approving a fall snapper season and encouraged federal shery managers to do the same. “This decision is right for our shermen, it’s good for our coastal economies and it’s based on undeniable science showing a growing and healthy red snapper shery,” Southerland said in a news release. “I am hopeful that the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will respond in a similarly responsible fashion and open a fall season in federal waters, as well.” Additionally, the FWC eliminated a Feb. 1 to March 31 closure affecting several grouper species in the Gulf of Mexico, including black, red, red hind, rock hind, scamp, yellow n and yellowmouth. Of cials said the closure originally was adopted as an effort to rebuild the gag grouper populations during spawning season, but it now has a separate harvest season from July 1 through Dec. 3. SPONSORED BY Inshore Offshore/Bottom Gag grouper are starting to show up in shallow water this week. Good reports from Mexico Beach and south of the cape are coming in daily. Live pin sh or live nger mullet are great baits and plentiful still. King sh are still hanging out around near shore structures and in the channels as well. A few ounder have been caught in 20 feet of water this week, so the fall feeding patterns are taking effect. Red sh have invaded our coast this week and the past weekend. Many good slot-sized sh have been caught under the George Tapper Bridge using all types of bait; however, tides will be a factor here. Scallops are still plentiful as we enter into the last month of the season. Presnell’s channel, the potholes and the dog end channel are all holding good sized shells right now.

Special to the Times Franklin County defeated Florida High, Wakulla and Lincoln on Thursday, Sept. 5 as they won their inaugural girls golf tournament at Hilamin Golf Course in Tallahassee. The Hawks posted a combined score of 239, edging out Florida High with 240, Wakulla with 244 and Lincoln with 260. Junior Callie Westbrook, freshman Megan Collins, eighth graders Hannah Westbrook and Harper Westbrook and seventh grader Melanie Collins all contributed to the win. “The course played tougher than usual, but I was happy with the effort of all our players and I think we will continue to get better,” said coach Scott Collins. Melanie Collins was the medalist, posting the lowest score of all four teams, in her rst high school tournament. The Lady Seahawks play next at Capital City Country Club in Tallahassee on Sept. 19 against Leon, Wakulla, and Chiles. – By David Adlerstein The Lady Seahawks varsity volleyball team split their two home outings last week, losing to North Florida Christian and then coming back to down Bozeman. Then on Tuesday evening, they fell to Liberty County. On Sept. 3 against North Florida, both the junior varsity and varsity teams lost. The JV lost 12-25 and 21-25, and then the varsity lost in three straight, 18-25, 8-25 and 15-25. On Sept. 5, in the district opener against Bozeman, the varsity girls won in three straight games, 2521, 25-11 and 25-18. “They played great that night,” said Coach Hilary Stanton. “Everyone was working together. It was really great to see them work so well as a team and earn their win. This game was an important district win for us!” On Tuesday night, also at home, both the JV and varsity teams fell to Liberty County. The JV girls fell in the rst game, 18-25, came back to win the second 2519 and then lost the deciding third game, 3-15.

The reason the city was forced to raise taxes and is still bringing in fewer dollars than this year is be cause the city saw a steep drop in its tax base, which fell from $126.4 million to $117.7 million, or by about $8.6 million, almost 7 percent. At a budget workshop before the regular meeting Sept. 3, Mayor Van Johnson tried to persuade his col leagues to offer employees a raise, but he garnered little support. “That’s money that will be put into the community,” Johnson said. “They’ll go out and spend it and it will recirculate in the community.” Commissioner Mitchell Bartley was adamant that the city was not in a position to offer pay increases. “I don’t feel like, in the circumstance, that it’s time to be giving raises,” he said. “I just can’t see it.” Bartley said his views are shaped by the fact that the city plans to im pose a new, state-mandated sewer user fee on customers next year, on top of the annual 3 percent hike in water and sewer rates that are part of the existing law. City Clerk Lee Mathes outlined for commissioners the proposal for divvying up sewer customers’ share of the roughly $101,000 the user fee will generate, with that money going toward repayment of a state revolving loan that was taken out to nance improvements to the city’s advanced wastewater treatment system a few years ago. As it stands now, each of the city’s 810 residential sewer custom ers will pay a fee of $6.50 per month, with the system’s 298 senior citi zen customers each paying $3.50 monthly. The city’s 175 commer cial customers will pay $12.50 per month, if the proposal is adopted on second reading at the October regular meeting. “It’s a sewer user fee that will be added on to each individual bill just to pay for the DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) pay ment,” Mathes said. “If you don’t have sewer, it doesn’t affect you.” The mayor queried the commis sioners whether it is “palatable for you to consider any percentage (for raises). In the past we did a bonus. I suggest that we do that, at least give employees something.” But the commissioners, with the exception of Frank Cook, were not in support. “We ought to take any extra mon ey we got and stockpile it and plan for the worst and hope for the best. Sometimes things crop up that we don’t count on,” said Jimmy Elliott, noting that with the closure of the Bay City Work Camp, the city lost a major source of income to operate its water and sewer system. “That’s a major hit … losing over $100,000 a year. To me that’s a lot of money,” he said. “I feel like right now our employees are making far better at their jobs than most of the people in the county. We can hold off a while and see how things are going to go this year.” Brenda Ash, who was absent because of illness, sent a memo op posing any boost in pay for either the city attorney or city workers. “I am not in agreement with an increase attorney fees or acrossthe-board raises while we have less money coming in,” she wrote, in a memo read by City Administrator Betty Taylor-Webb. Commissioner Frank Cook carved out a middle path, support ing a bonus for city employees but not specifying whether it would be quantied and paid up front, or come as a result of surplus monies left at the end of the year. “On the pay increase I’m still contemplating. I can see some ad vantages, but I haven’t made up my mind on that one,” he said. “Once you give a raise it’s there. I would be more amenable to go to some thing like a bonus, and if we are below what we should have spent in a given month, look at that and prorating it out. “Once you give a raise, people depend on it. But if we have extra money, it’s an incentive for people to save money. Workers can push to save money as time goes on,” Cook said. “I’m apprehensive about the nancial situation of the country and just society in general right now. I’m somewhat apprehensive about obligating ourselves to a pay raise, I think we can probably do it, but if we do it in writing we have ob ligated ourselves. “I would be amenable to some what of a compromise,” he said. “Maybe we can have our cake and eat it too.” The mayor continued to press for a pay increase without taking on any of his colleagues. “I’m not be ing critical of (anyone’s) position,” he said. “I also understand that the cost of employees are part of the operations of the city, they’re part of that cost, and we can’t exclude them because they’re people, and not give them cost of living adjust ments when we’re increasing ev erything else.” Johnson said granting the city’s workforce a 3 percent increase “is not going to amount to more than $30,000. That is the cost of running the city; that is a cost you cannot escape.” Both Elliott and Bartley re main unconvinced. “We pay good salaries, and each policeman has a car,” Elliott said. “They don’t drive to work. That’s gas expenditures. “I think we ought to be thankful we’ve got jobs, period. I’m thankful they (city employees) are not in a position where they’re going to lose their jobs,” he said. “This ought to be a year of tightening up. “Schoolteachers have to pay half their health care (and they) have to pay loans, and they’re the ones teaching our children for the future of this nation,” Elliott said. Bartley said he was concerned the city was coming too close to the 10-mill cap. “I think the money should be carried over,” he said. “I think we need to handle the tax payers’ money in more of a profes sional way.” CITY from page A1 Because there is plenty of bacteria on the hide, it is carefully washed and then sold to a processing facility, in Port St. Joe. The meat is sold in ve-pound quanti ties, he said. “We have hide buyers that come into Florida, and they (the hides) are graded for their value,” Kirkland said. “The better hides have no marks or blem ishes; they’re not beaten up from ghts with other alligators, which devalue the hide.” Kirkland said the alliga tor population in the state is 1.3 million animals, sec ond only to Louisiana. Rec reational season, which al lows for 6,663 permits, runs from Aug. 15 through Nov. 1. Hunters who carry the necessary permits are al lowed to take gators from 5 p.m. to 10 a.m. But nuisance alligators are handled by those under contract with FWC. “Our policy is that any one who feels that they have an alligator that’s a prob lem or a threat to them or their animals or livestock, they can call and notify us and we will remove that al ligator,” Kirkland said, not ing that the animal must be 4 feet or larger.

Local A14 | The Times Thursday, September 12, 2013 By TEVIS PAGE Special to the Times After two weeks of school, the student body seemed to be in a slump. We are beginning to get tired of our somewhat new but still old routine. Luckily we were coming up on our rst break, Labor Day. It was such a great way to start the third week of school. Once class was in session; it was full speed, since we now had to squeeze a ve-day week into only four days. The high school was a madhouse. Stu dent Government Association had its rst meeting, the Fellow ship of Christian Athletes met on Tuesday, and all the classes were holding elections. The un derclassmen are electing their class ofcers while the senior class has students running for homecoming court and/or Mr. & Miss Franklin County High School. Along with everything else that had to be done last week, we had school pictures. In the past years, it has seemed physically impossible to take every grade’s pictures in one day. Last Friday we surprised ourselves by tak ing every grade from kindergar ten to the juniors before 1 p.m.. The Pre-K and seniors will take pictures this Friday, Sept. 13. This past week has been so hurried, but I would rather it be crazy busy than super boring. It’s been another great week at FCHS. Go Hawks!
