By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com County commissioners on Tuesday refused a request from the Airport Advisory Board to lower the rent on a commercial hangar. At the Oct. 15 county meeting, Airport Director Alan Pierce told commissioners the AAB had discussed Randall Terry’s lease on the commercial hangar formerly occupied by Garlick Environmental Associates and recommended Terry be allowed to lease the building and hangar for $1,000 per month for 20 years. Terry originally leased an existing commercial hangar for $500 monthly. That hangar, largely unoccupied since its construction in 2004, needs extensive work to convert it from storage to of ces for use by Terry’s vehicle transport company. The lowest bid to renovate the hangar, $350,000, came in at more twice the available funding. Commissioners on Oct. 1 unanimously approved leasing the Garlick hangar to Terry for six months at $1,200 monthly while they sought additional funds for the renovation. Chairman Cheryl Sanders asked Tuesday why the advisory board recommended a lower rent than had already been agreed to by the commission. Pierce said $1,200 a month was a temporary arrangement and the AAB had determined no money was available for the required renovations. Pierce said Terry proposed the $1,000 rent because he didn’t want to wait six months for a nal decision on the cost of leasing the hangar. He said under the new agreement, the suggested rent of $1,000 could be reviewed every ve years, and increases would be capped at 20 percent. Pierce said Terry would not be allowed to sublet space in the hangar without county permission. Record-breaking aviator visits Apalach airport By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In 1873, the great French novelist Jules Verne penned a classic adventure novel about how an English gentleman and his French valet circumnavigated the globe. Phileas Fogg and Passepartout went “Around the World the Eighty Days” to win a wager of 20,000 pounds. CarolAnn Garratt ew around the world in about eight days. And in doing so, she set a world record and raised thousands of dollars for research to cure ALS, the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Last month, the dauntless aviator paid an unhurried visit to Apalachicola Regional By DAVID ADLERSTEIN and MATTHEW BEATON 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Florida Cabinet on Oct. 10 approved a single oyster farming lease in the Apalachicola Bay, but Franklin County of cials and an oystermen representative aren’t happy about it. The Cabinet’s four members — governor, attorney general, chief nancial of cer and agriculture commissioner — voted unanimously on the two-acre, 10-year aquaculture lease. Andrew Arnold applied for the lease, which is located in St. George Sound, part of the Apalachicola Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, to harvest clams and oysters, according to documents from the Cabinet meeting. The documents indicated Franklin County commissioners sent a letter supporting the lease, but a county of cial said that’s not the “complete story.” “We didn’t want any leases — be it Arnold’s or anybody else — to interfere with the traditional harvesting of oysters in the bay, the traditional uses of the bay,” said Alan Pierce, director of administrative services director, in an interview last week. The board sent a letter of support for the lease back in 2011, which it followed up with a letter Aug. 8. The letter mentions the Arnold lease, but it’s unclear whether it supports the lease or is making an exception for the lease while expressing opposition to a larger aquaculture lease program. That plan, which was halted, was based on a 20year-old project for about 100 two-acre lease sites separated into four aquaculture use zones in the bay. At Tuesday morning’s county County seeks standard pay grades By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com A proposed wage classification plan would end across-the-board raises to county employees and require supervisor evaluations. On Oct. 1, county legal advisor Lucille Turner of the Carson and Adkins law firm presented commissioners with a plan to formally classify county employees and set standardized wage increases based on seniority and performance. The county commission has yet to plug in numbers to the wage classifications and is expected to consider adoption of the plan in the weeks ahead. Turner said the new plan applies only to employees of the county commission, such as the road department and solid waste, but hoped constitutional officers would follow the county lead in adopting new rules. Turner said she did not focus on the rules adopted by other counties in creating the guidelines. “You’re not losing people or having trouble recruiting,” she said, “So we must be doing some things right.” She pointed out that county employees’ salaries are based largely on seniority and that under the proposed system, employees could keep their years of service when moving from job to job as an incentive to remain with the county. She said the proposed rules would not be a part of standing county policy because the rules would be reviewed every year when the budget is being prepared. Under the proposed system, all employees are classified under one of 35 job titles. The county keeps the right to create new positions as needed. Employees would also be grouped into pay grades. Anyone having worked less than six months would be considered a “probationary trainee.” At six months an employees is reclassified as Grade I, the base pay rate, after successfully completing a supervisor evaluation. Employees would be eligible for a hike to Grade II after two years of work and a successful evaluation.

The occasion was to return County Planner Alan Pierce’s brother-in-law Bill Whit ley, and his brother Wes Whitley, to the airport to pick up the plane they had left there a week earlier because of inclement weather on a shing weekend trip. CarolAnn’s brief stop offered an opportunity to learn about her record-breaking ight and her dedication to the cause of de feating the disease that took her mother’s life a little more than a decade ago. The daughter of an avid ight enthusiast, whose three children all became licensed pilots, CarolAnn grew up in Pennsylvania and rst soloed in 1972 to become a hobby pilot. She went on to the University of Wisconsin, where she studied mechanical engineer ing, and later became a manager with a Fortune 500 company. Her love of ying took off, so to speak, in 1996 when she com pleted her commercial license, and she now lives near Ocala, adjacent to her own runway from which she can lift off in her 1993 single-engine 200-horsepower J Model Mooney. It was in that plane, seated next to her friend Carol Foy from Texas, and in front of two 60-gal lon containers that replaced the rear seat, that CarolAnn em barked in December 2008 on her world record ight for a Class C1-C xed-wing plane. Her mom had died six years earlier from ALS, and in those years she had used her ying skills, including a ight around the world, to expand her fund raising effort to raise tens of thousands of dollars on behalf of ghting the disease. “It’s like being entombed in your own body,” she said. “Men tally, they’re 100 percent there.” Most people with the disease are between 35 and 55, typically about 40 with a young family, CarolAnn said. “They’re think ing there’s some chemical com ponent, some chemical trigger,” she said. “They’re getting some where. Things are happening.” Of the roughly $300,000 she has raised over the last decade, most of it has gone to the ALS Therapy Development Institute, a Cambridge, Mass., nonprot biotechnology organization dedi cated to developing effective treatments for ALS. The record-breaking ight, which took 18 months to plan and a little more than eight days to complete, was westbound from Florida to Hawaii and then across the Pacic Ocean to New Zealand and Australia, and then on to Singapore, India, the Sey chelles to South Africa, then Egypt, to Europe and across the Atlantic to Florida. The ight landed at Orlando International Airport about an hour before the bones of toddler Caylee Anthony were discov ered, so attention was diverted to a heartbreaking news story, rather than an inspiring one. The two women stopped just eight times as they hopped across the globe, alternating the shifts, with just one night of a full eighthour sleep. They almost doubled the old record, which had been 54.6 miles per hour, by achieving an average of 115.35 mph. “We beat it by minimum ground time. It will be very dif cult to break,” CarolAnn said. “That was tough, tough work.” She has chronicled her ad ventures in two books, “Upon Sil ver Wings: Global Adventure in a Small Plane” and “Upon Silver Wings II: World-Record Adven ture.” You can also read about her ight on www.alsworldight. com. From April 2011 to March 2012, CarolAnn once again ew around the world, but this time it was at a much more leisurely pace, meandering around the globe to share her adventures everywhere from Bosnia to Bru nei, from Istanbul to Indonesia, and parts in between. In addition to her dedication to ending the scourge of ALS, Caro lAnn ies more than 300 hours a year, including ying students with the Young Eagles program, the sick and needy with Angel Flights and cadets with the Civil Air Patrol. In the summertime, she ies around the U.S. making presen tations. And sometimes, she even nds time to y a couple friends back to the Panhandle to retrieve a plane. Pierce said it was necessary to reach an immediate agree ment with Terry because Jack sonville physician Randy Ran dolph wants to rent the 2004 han gar originally leased to Terry. Pierce said there might be sufcient funds to equip the 2004 hangar for Randolph’s needs and that Randolph was willing to pay $350 monthly for use of the hangar. Pierce said Lee Lewis, of AV CON, the airport’s engineering consultant, is reviewing the bids to see if the $94,000 in grant funds targeted for the 2004 hangar is sufcient to produce a building suitable for Randolph. Pierce said Randolph could rent a teehangar until a decision about the 2004 hangar is reached, but wants a timely answer to his request. Sanders said she was con cerned the airport board had suggested a reduced rent for Terry in opposition to the fee al ready set by the county. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked if it was possible to make the 2004 hangar Federal Aviation Administration compliant for less than the low bid of $350,000. Pierce said it might be possible and that Terry wanted his ofce space to be upstairs which in creased the cost of renovation. Commissioner Noah Lock ley asked why Terry should be allowed to rent the building for less than the $1,200 monthly paid by Garlick and Associates. “If you don’t keep this thing level, you’re going to go in the hole,” Sanders said. She sug gested the difference in rent might be split between Randolph and Terry. Pierce said the AAB expect ed to collect $1,000 monthly from Terry and $500 monthly from Randolph. “Right now it’s sitting empty,” Commissioner Smokey Parrish said. “Right now we’re generat ing no funds out of it.” Jackel said she thought the Garlick hangar had been leased at the last meeting. County At torney Michael Shuler said Ter ry has not yet signed a lease. “I’m like Smokey,” Sanders said. “I want to see it rented out, too, but I don’t want to see us go ing in the hole over it.” Parrish said if the 2004 han gar was only going to bring $350 monthly in rent, he would pre fer the building be used to store county equipment and protect it from the weather. He said equip ment storage and maintenance was the original intended use of the 2004 hangar. Parrish moved to lease the Garlick hangar to Terry for $1,000 and use the 2004 hangar to store county equipment. Sanders said the county at torney had already prepared the lease to rent the Garlick hangar at $1,200 and that an advisory board should not con tradict a decision by the county commission. “All these advisory boards are in my craw, this morning,” she said. “They come to us for rec ommendations. We have to work together. I don’t want conict between all these other advisory boards but at the same time, the ultimate decision comes down to this board. We’re the ones that take the ack from the public.” Commissioner Noah Lockley said “that’s a big building for $1,000 a month.” Jackel said “It kind of looks like the tail wagging the dog.” She suggested the commission leave the temporary lease in ef fect and renegotiate when the lease is up in six months. Parrish moved to leave the six-month lease in place fol lowed by a ve-year lease at $1,000 monthly. The motion passed unanimously.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times O PINION www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, October 17, 2013 A Page 4 Section ‘What’s going on at senior center?’ Lately, a couple times a day friends and neighbors have been asking me, “Hey, I heard you were there, what’s going on at the senior center, anyway?” Yes, I was there and this is what happened: The by-laws of the Franklin County Senior Citizen Council specify that an annual meeting be held on the second Wednesday of September. This is called a Senior Council meeting and it’s the one time each year that property owners and residents over 50 years old get to vote for members of their board of directors. About 40 of us showed-up at the Carrabelle Senior Center on Wednesday, Sept. 11. When we walked in, the board member at the front desk told us, “If you’re here for the annual meeting, it was held yesterday!” At that point most left, but a dozen or so stayed to see if we could nd out what happened. The center was open to the public and perhaps 20 people were engaged in various activities, but when we sat down and started talking, a senior center of cer confronted us and said that if we didn’t leave immediately we would be charged with trespassing. We didn’t leave and shortly a Carrabelle city police of cer arrived. He was polite and professional and left a few minutes later without arresting anybody. We talked things over a bit and decided to attend the next board of directors meeting on Oct. 9. There were about 40 of us at that next meeting and we asked that a date be set for a meeting of the Senior Council of Franklin County. The president said, “No!” Period. No explanation whatsoever. Just, “No!” Then a member of the board of directors made a motion to schedule a Senior Council meeting and another board member seconded it. The vote was 5-3 against. At that point two board of directors members resigned and walked out. And as they say on Mullet Beach, “Thatthere’s the story.” Michael Julian Carrabelle Government is working on local level In this day and age of malfunctioning government, I thought I’d share my good news! Government is working, at least on a local level. As you may be aware, Kentucky Avenue in Lanark went under water about 6six weeks ago. My boyfriend and I are the only permanent residents that were affected by this, but you would have thought there were at least 100 taxpayers living there with the wonderful response we received. Our county commissioner, Cheryl Sanders, came out on the rst day (a Sunday to boot) and offered any assistance she could, both on a county and private level. Ms. Sanders has been in touch ever since and always has time to talk to me even if it’s just to let me vent. Cheryl sent out the public works people, and they have been working with us to nd a solution to this problem. Tommy of public works needs a special mention and our heartfelt thanks, as he also has been very available and receptive to all our ideas and suggestions. Now I know that some of the weekenders have been unhappy and made some grumbling noises, but as they do not live here, and didn’t have to live with four feet of water and getting in and out of their home by boat for three weeks, I believe they should be a little more patient and give the county time to help us nd a solution. Once again I just want to thank the Franklin County government for all the good things they do, and especially Cheryl and Tommy. Susan Tolle Letters to the EDITOR Special to the Times A person recently asked me an interesting question. He asked, “Who are you and what are you doing here?” This was a great question, and I was happy to reply that my parents raised me in Carrabelle for 10 of the rst 12 years of my life, that I had returned to Franklin County on numerous summer vacations during my high school years and that I have maintained close connections to Carrabelle and Franklin County during my years in Bible college and while my wife and I served as missionaries for over two decades. Additionally, I noted that I now am the pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Carrabelle. An equally accurate and signi cantly abbreviated answer would have been, “I am here because Carrabelle and Franklin County are home!” The question noted above stirred my heart to communicate my deeply held feelings for Carrabelle and Franklin County so that others might understand the value represented by residence here on “the Forgotten Coast.” The people of Franklin County and, especially for me, of Carrabelle, represent a unique blend of Southern culture and old fashioned values. For instance, our churches represent closeknit people groups that are as familiar to many of us as our own families. Other institutions, such as our school with its athletic teams, marching band, cheerleading squads and other extracurricular groups are signi cant points of reference for those who value Franklin County as home. For me to look across a room and remember, “I played football with that guy,” or “I remember the time we all went on a church youth trip” is to re ect on good times and to rejoice in the opportunity to know good people. Additionally, childhood friendships have placed deep roots of loyalty and enduring feelings of kinship in my heart. Of course, Franklin County has changed a great deal since I moved here in 1963, and it is wise to recognize that changing technology and infusions of new ideas that come our way as possible opportunities to better our community and add spice to our community. On the other hand, I view the people of our county as good, simple people who are resourceful and intelligent; most of the residents of Franklin County place a high value on family, friendship and other long-time relationships. We are quick to communicate messages of Southern hospitality, and relatively slow to express anger and other negative feelings. On the other hand, where our traditions are challenged or our culture is criticized, we are quick to defend the positive aspects of both our heritage from all comers. As an example, when I was a young man, I had the privilege of working in the seafood industry. I am grateful that I came to Christ, and I am amazed that God would use me as a pastor and preacher, but I would have been content to stay home, never leave for Bible college and certainly never spend decades away from home had God not called me away from home! While I am grateful for the religious and legal education that I have received away from Carrabelle, there are still times when I wish I was still simply working at the “ sh house” or the “oyster house” or the “crab house.” I have worked in all three environments; the work was hard but satisfying. The hours were long, but I interacted with great people. I especially enjoyed the retail side of the seafood business where I met folks from the county as well as people from all over the United States and in fact the world. Most “out-of-towners” came and spent short periods of time here in our wonderful county. Others came, saw and stayed. Of course, because I did leave home when God called me, I have been able to serve Him all across the U.S. and in several foreign nations; my wife, Dee, and I met in her native Pennsylvania and both our children were born in that great commonwealth. Dee too has fallen in love with Franklin County, and she feels the same way I do. We can never really imagine leaving home again unless at the clear direction of God. My wife’s background and heritage brings me to another thought about my love for this “Unforgotten Coast.” Over the decades our community has become more diverse. Many people from other locations have come and have fallen in love with several of the same cultural characteristics that have captured my heart. Some of them have made this area their homes and most feel the same deep respect that I do for our way of life. They have added their own spice to the dish that is Franklin County, and we are all richer for their contributions to our home. Thus, moving forward, we have a delicate balancing act facing our area. We have a need to respect the heritage of the past while we welcome the positive aspects brought to us from other places and different cultures. An adage that I use in church is relevant here: If we are not willing to strive for and adapt to positive change, then we are one step away from the institutional graveyard. On the other hand, if we make change that is not founded on the values expressed by our predecessors but merely for change’s sake, then we will most likely not change for the good. Unwise change can even make Franklin County a place that would be unrecognizable as home to those of us who love our county. Therefore, I am committed to remembering to be grateful for the Franklin County that we have inherited. Our home may not be the most sophisticated place in Florida, but it has a sound foundation upon which we now have the opportunity to build. We have the privilege of serving our community so that we see it grow economically; moreover, we have the opportunity to be good examples to the generations that follow us if we can discern how to keep Franklin County rich in culture, wealthy in morality and prosperous economically. Why am I here? Because, I say, “Here is home, and I love my house!” May God bless Franklin County; may God bless our home.

HOMER INMAN MCMILLAN, II Guest Column In fall, the world is an all-you-can-eat buffet for Florida black bears. Programmed to pack in extra calories before winter, bears can smell food a mile away and will eat almost anything. Bears may decide an over owing trash can is easier pickings than searching for acorns and berries. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds the public this is a critical time of year to properly store garbage, pet food and birdseed to keep bears out of places where people live and work. During the fall, bears with big appetites are less likely to linger in neighborhoods if people don’t give them access to food. “People can prevent problems with Florida black bears by safely securing garbage, putting out garbage cans the morning of pickup rather than the night before, and using bearresistant garbage cans or dumpsters.” said David Telesco, FWC’s bear management coordinator. Surveys of Florida communities with access to bear-resistant trash cans or dumpsters show the overwhelming majority are pleased with the results. “The FWC is committed to helping the public keep bears out of garbage and out of neighborhoods,” said Telesco. “Now, we’re asking the public to help us better understand the range of the Florida black bear in the wild.” Eastpoint veterinarian Dr. Hobson Fulmer of the Apalachicola Bay Animal Clinic said the practice had its rst bear attack come to the clinic Tuesday. “It was a small dog that had to be euthanized because her injuries were so severe,” he said. “Most bear sighting are interesting and pleasant, but bear encounters with pets are not,” Fulmer said. “Bears ordinarily will not go out of their way to attack a dog or cat, but if they are cornered or attacked they will ght back, and the bear wins nearly every time. There are steps pet owners can take to prevent such incidences. First, eliminate anything that may attract a bear. Secure trash cans, as bear love to feed on garbage. Do not leave pet food or any other food outdoors, bears love dog and cat food. Clean BBQ grills after cooking or the bear will clean it for you. Most importantly, do not allow your pet outdoors unattended, especially at night. As bears become more active in fall, more people are also going outdoors for hunting, shing, hiking, biking and wildlife viewing. The FWC is asking the public to report sightings of Florida black bears or their tracks to a new Web page: https://public.myfwc. com/fwri/blackbear/. Biologists are especially interested in sightings of a female bear with cubs. The bear sightings Web page will help biologists update the map of where bears live in Florida. However, the Web page is only for sharing bear location information. FWC regional of ces remain the places for people to call for advice on how to resolve human-bear con icts. The Web page has the option for people to upload photos of bears or their tracks. But please do not approach bears to take photos of them. Black bears are generally not aggressive, but approaching them can make them defensive. Adult males typically weigh 250 to 400 pounds and can be as large as 600 pounds. Extra caution is appropriate when a mother bear and her cubs are sighted. Photos from game cameras are welcome. “We know about prime bear habitats such as the Apalachicola National Forest, Ocala National Forest and Big Cypress National Preserve. While bear subpopulations are mainly centered on large public lands, bears also occur elsewhere, and those locations have been underreported,” said Brian Scheick, FWC bear research biologist. “Our bear range data is 11 years old, and we are excited about getting the public’s help in identifying all the places where bears now live in Florida. “What we learn from the new bear sightings Web page will inform the FWC’s efforts to document bear distribution and help with future bear management decisions,” Scheick said The black bear is a conservation success story in Florida, with the population growing from as few as 300 bears in the 1970s to an estimated population of more than 3,000 today.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, October 17, 2013 commission meeting, it was clear by their comments to Cal Knickerbocker, head of the state’s aquaculture program, or their stony silence, that commissioners were not too pleased with the Cabinet’s decision. “I’m here to reaf rm our commitment to the Franklin County commission that the department wants to keep the lines of communication open,” said Knickerbocker, noting the state’s Agriculture Department planned regular monthly visit to commission meetings. “What’s the deal here? You all told us last month that aquaculture was gone, and then y’all come in and tell us we just leased out some lease,” Commissioner Noah Lockley said. “So the letter we wrote saying that the board as a whole objected to that, that will go in the public record?” asked Chair Cheryl Sanders. “Do we have to do a letter every time a possible lease will come up?” Pierce said last week the August letter spelled out the county’s concerns, which include high salinity levels being unsuitable for growing oysters; possible con icts with mullet and ounder shermen; questions about enforcement on the lease; and a complaint that the state Agriculture Department appears to be promoting aquaculture “over and to the detriment of their traditional role of maintaining the natural oyster bars.” “We knew (the Cabinet) had tabled the whole idea of leases. We did not know it was coming back for reconsideration, and we were not asked speci cally about Mr. Arnold’s lease a second time,” Pierce said. After viewing the county’s letter, Agriculture Department spokeswoman Erin Gillespie said there was a “bit of confusion.” She said the county commissioners were speaking only about the 100 leases, not the one approved Oct. 10. She said the county sent no other letters about the approved lease. Asked if the county was informed a vote was taking place, Gillespie would only say the meeting agendas are posted online “well in advance.” “It is my understanding that at recent meetings, the commission has continued to verbally support the Arnold lease,” she said via email. “There is a video of a recent meeting saying such but I don’t have the link on hand.” At a meeting earlier this year in Apalachicola, where aquaculture of cials outlined the largescale aquaculture zone proposal which they later shelved, Sanders had spoken about her high regard for Arnold personally. But there had been no speci c public discussion of his particular proposal at the meeting, which was not a formal meeting of the commissioners. “He visited with you and you were supportive of his attempt,” Knickerbocker said Tuesday. “That’s the only lease.” Knickerbocker said the state has received two additional requests by clam leaseholders in Alligator Harbor to use the full water column. He reiterated to of cials the state has no plans to move forward with large-scale aquaculture in Apalachicola Bay. “We pulled those off the table and will not move forward with those,” he said. “We have no intentions of bringing any more to you without your comments rst.” Franklin County Seafood Workers Association President Shannon Hartseld was beyond concerned about the approved lease and down-right mad. “It will not help us at all,” he said emphatically. Harts eld said aquaculture is done to allow a bay to purify itself after it’s been polluted, but that’s not the problem in Apalachicola Bay, which is only “starving” for freshwater. The lack of freshwater ow down the river and into the bay is viewed as the main reason oyster harvests have declined severely in the area. Harts eld worried farming oysters will hurt the industry because there’s no money to be made. Startup costs are $15,000 to $20,000, but a lease yields no more than $12,000 and $16,000 a year, he said, and oystermen already make $36,000 to $60,000 annually. At the last few meetings he’s attended, Harts eld said the county commission has been “totally against” the aquaculture leases. He also said the oyster population is making a comeback thanks to higher-than-normal rainfall this year “We’ve got oysters growing right now. … We’ve been getting good freshwater. And we’ve got oysters coming back. This time next year we’ll be catching oysters,” he said. The heavy rains in the area aren’t the reason, though; it’s the rain farther north that feeds the Apalachicola River and ows down to the bay, Harts eld said. Scientists plan baywide study Knickerbocker said the National Academy of Sciences is undertaking a yearlong, baywide study “trying to determine a path forward, a future for the bay. They’re looking for permanent xes, rather than short-term temporary issues.” He said the academy is in the process of selecting a committee of experts in all areas, such as water ecology, water science, oyster science, aquaculture modeling, and is taking nominations through the end of this week. Knickerbocker said the academy will hold a series of meetings, including one here in the county in early December. “We do want community input to that,” he said. “They need to hear from the stakeholders to help them move forward on their study.” Commissioner Smokey Parrish said he thought the data could be useful in the county’s case before the Gulf Consortium. “This bay’s been studied to death. Right now we need some help,” he said. Knickerbocker said the academy’s experts will have the task “to assimilate all of those projects and come up with a most meaningful path forward. The study will look at aquaculture as one of the options. We don’t know what their nding will be. They may think it’s great, they may think the bay’s not the place to do it. We’ll look at that and part of that process is to come back to you. We may reach a point where that (aquaculture) is what the community wants. “It’s not about aquaculture,” he stressed. “It’s about xing the resource.” Im p la nt s & C r o w ns Af f or da ble De ntu r es P ana ma Cit y P A W illia m C Kna pk e DDS G e ner a l D en t is t P ana ma City Squ ar e 6 1 7 W est 23r d Str eet, P ana ma City FL Cal l F or Inf or mat ion 188 841 516 38 F ees ef f ectiv e thr ough 1 1 / 2 2/ 1 3 Addi tiona l f ees ma y be incur r ed depe nding on indiv idua l case s Same -da y Cr o wn ser vice ma y not be a v ailab le in cer t ain case s Af f or dable Dentu r es P anam a City P .A.

If an employee fails to successfully pass an evaluation, his or her raise could be postponed and a salary decrease could result from a disciplinary demotion. Chairman Cheryl Sanders praised the plan. “This is something we could go by that there wouldn’t be a fight every budget cycle. This will end across-theboard raises and take that battle out of the budget.” Assistant Finance Officer Erin Griffith said the plan would simplify preparation of the budget. “When we go into the budget process, salary would be known based on record,” she said. Commissioner Smokey Parrish said the system would encourage employees to cross train and learn new skills to advance. “I think it’s a good thing myself, a more equitable and fairer way of doing it,” said Sanders. “Policy says what policy says. Lucy, this is what we want to do. Now let’s plug in the real numbers.” Sanders said she wanted to see increased education for department heads. Commissioner Pinki Jackel suggested Turner develop formal evaluation sheets for each position. Sanders asked Turner to include more specifics about evaluations in the proposal and return to the next county meeting with the altered plan. Commissioners voted unanimously to have her do so.

According to a news release from the sheriff’s ofce, tn the early morn ing hours of Oct. 7, Carrabelle Police Ofcer Gary Hun nings and Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputy Lt. Garrett Creamer discov ered what appeared to be evidence that a tractor had been stolen. While inves tigating deputies discovered a large Kubota tractor hid den in a wooded area. After depu ties conrmed the tractor was stolen, surveillance was established in the area and a short time later deputies observed Brandon W. Atkinson and Joshua T. Martin return and load the tractor onto a trail er and depart. A trafc stop was con ducted and further inves tigation was conducted, which uncovered several thefts of heavy equipment from Franklin County as well as Wakulla, Gadsden, and Bay counties. As a re sult of this investigation deputies have recovered more than $127,000 in sto len heavy equipment. Atkinson, 36, Car rabelle, and Martin, 27, Crawfordville, an ofcer at Wakulla Correc tions Institution, were arrested and each charged with 14 felonies, includ ing 12 counts of grand theft over $300, grand theft over $20,000 and burglary or at tempted burglary of a structure Ralph “Rusty” Pigott, 26, Craw fordville, was ar rested and charged with tampering with physical evi dence. Martin is on leave with pay from his job at the correctional institution. Sheriff Mike Mock said the ring had been op erating for some time, perhaps nine months to a year. Additional charges are pending as the investigation con tinues throughout the four counties. It’s not clear how many tractors or equipment was stolen by the ring. If you think you may have been a victim call the Franklin County Sheriff’s Ofce at 670-8500. – By DAVID ADLERSTEIN Stolen equipment thieves nailed in Carrabelle JOSHUA MARTIN BRANDON A A TKINSON RR ALPH P P IGOTT These stolen tractors were discovered by Franklin County law enforcement. Law Enforcement A6 | The Times Thursday, October 17, 2013 A Pensacola man was found dead in the parking area at the Ten Foot Hole marina in Apalachicola on Sunday morning.. Sometime during the early morning hours of Oct. 13, Robert Warren Smith, 60, is believed to have taken his own life with a shotgun. Jerry Weber and Clarice Powell, who had spent the night on Weber’s house boat, noticed a man seated in a folding chair facing west when they left the ma rina to shop for breakfast early Sunday morning. On returning to the houseboat around 10 a.m., Weber commented that the man had not moved. Pow ell, a victim’s advocate for the Franklin County Sher iff’s Ofce, said she feared Smith had suffered a heart attack, but on approaching the body, saw the shotgun. She asked Weber to call 911. The call was eventu ally made by a sherman on the wharf. Powell said Smith was seated next to his white Ca dillac Escalade in a chair he had brought with him. Powell said she and several other persons who spent the night at the marina had heard a sound “like a re cracker” between 1 and 2 a.m. The case remains under investigation by the Apala chicola Police Department. Powell said, based on identication found with the body, Smith was the captain of a cruise ship. She said there were two cigars near the chair, and a sealed note was found next to the body. Smith was a frequent visitor to Apalachicola. He was known to lay over at Scipio Creek and Ten Foot Hole when piloting boats through the area on the way to South Florida.

Officers Martin, Cook, Brownell, Lipford and Gore have been focusing enforcement efforts into the inspection of commer cially harvested oysters. At the end of Septem ber, they issued five mis demeanor citations to commercial harvesters for possession of under sized oysters. The size tolerance vio lations ranged from 43 to 93 percent undersized. Earlier this month, Of ficer Ramos was patrol ling offshore when he stopped an inbound Ala bama vessel. The boating safety in spection revealed the op erator had failed to apply registration numbers to the vessel and had insuf ficient flares. The fisheries inspec tion revealed four greater amberjack measuring 22, 26, 27, and 28 inches in length. Ramos interviewed the two individuals, which re sulted in two citations is sued for undersized great er amberjack and warn ings for over the bag limit of greater amberjack, im proper display of registra tion numbers and insuffi cient number of flares. Officer Allen was on water patrol in Apalachic ola Bay when he noticed what appeared to be a boat commercially har vesting oysters in a pro hibited area. Allen set up surveil lance and observed one individual tonging for oysters. He watched the subject harvest the oysters for a period of time and then conducted a resource stop. The fisherman was found to be in possession of commercial quantities of shellfish and was cited for harvesting oysters in a prohibited area. The oysters were re turned to the water. FWC REPORT

The hope is the Heritage Dinner will be an annual event to support the library, and based on the reviews it looks like it will. The theme was steamboating, and several people came dressed for the occasion. Steamboating in and around Apalachicola occurred for a span of 100 years, so costumes varied. A sumptuous dinner was prepared by the Owl Caf, and the event took place in the Wine Room. Tables were decorated with red brocade along with magnolia, gloriosa lilies, ferns and other native greenery and the tradition of many candles lit the room. Close to 60 people attended and started with wine and oysters on the deck. Next year we may have to nd a larger venue, as there were folks who wanted tickets who did not get seats. Cost per ticket was $60, and after expenses the library took in some needed funds. Thank you all for supporting your city library, and thank you to the Owl for hosting the event. Authors in Apalach has not gone away, but has been re-scheduled for Saturday, March 15, 2014. A number of new authors will be joining this larger event, which will be taking place at the Fort Coombs Armory. Holding the whole event in one place will allow the expansion of forums on a number of topics, and include publishers and other book sellers. Save the date.. At Authors in Apalach, we will honor two historians who have contributed signicantly to the history of the area, Dr. William Warren Rogers (“Outposts on the Gulf” and “At the Water’s Edge” with Lee Willis), professor emeritus from Florida State University; and Harry P. Owens (“Apalachicola Before 1861”, his doctoral thesis), professor emeritus from University of Mississippi. His thesis is being published for the rst time as a book by the library, and should be available for sale in March. In the meantime, the library is gearing up for its Seafood Festival Book Sale, Nov. 1 and 2, inside the fairgrounds. These book sales, the other held in May on Tour of Homes weekend, bring in needed funds for the library. Volunteers are badly needed to staff the booth, and you do not have to be an avid reader to help. Sign up at the library or call 653-8436. A schedule of two to three hour blocks is being set up. It’s fun, and volunteers can select books to purchase before the crowds arrive. Caty Greene is the librarian for the Apalachicola Municipal Library. To reach her, call 653-8436. @ THE LIBRARY Caty Greene History buffs dress up for Heritage Dinner SPECIAL TO THE TT IMEs S The Wine Room on the eve of the Heritage Dinner. Special to the Times October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the “Calendar Girls” would like to remind all women to schedule a mammogram for this year. “This is not a onceand-done test,” said Elaine Kozlowsky, president of Franklin Needs, Inc., the nonprofit organization responsible for producing the annual calendar that features area women in provocative dress as a spur to increase breast cancer awareness. “Breast cancer has to start somewhere,” she said. “Even though you may have had a clear screening in the past, or have no family history, this is no guarantee that you won’t fall victim to it.” Franklin Needs will pay the cost of mammograms and followup testing to diagnosis if you are a Franklin County resident between the ages of 35 and 64 and have no health insurance. To schedule a mammogram, call Sacred Heart Hospital in Port St. Joe at 229-5802. If you are considered disadvantaged and need transportation, please contact Croom’s Transportation in Apalachicola at 653-8132. There will be a minimal charge. “We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our local business community, civic and government organizations as well as the residents of Franklin County for your unwavering support. Without you this program would not be possible,” said Elaine Kozlowsky. She said the group got a call last week from a Vestavia Hills, Alabama physician, who had stayed with his wife at the Water Street Hotel during a recent visit. “While shopping at The Tin Shed, their favorite store, they purchased a copy of our 2013 calendar,” Kozlowsky said. “The purpose of his call was to purchase 30 more copies. He said the fact they were 2013 calendars didn’t make any difference. It made us smile.” She said that if necessary, the next calendar will come out for 2017. “Until then, we are experimenting with a limited number of posters featuring the ladies of the 2009 calendar,” said Kozlowsky. They will only be available at Artemis and The Grill in Apalachicola. The posters are standard size and are suitable for framing. “Once again, we, the Calendar Girls, say thank you for your continued support,” she said. “All of us have been so blessed.” Beat breast cancer, schedule a mammogram

The Bowery Gallery, 149 Commerce Sreet, hosted the reception to introduce the Wilroys’ work to its Apala chicola clientele, along with the display of hundreds of works by other regional artists. Stained glass, tex tile arts, paper sculpture and ceramics were all on view as part of the “Off yon der somewhere” exhibit that last until the end of October. Gallery Director Leslie Wallace Coon said she was very pleased with the eve ning. “It was wonderful. The party never got too crowded and people were buying,” she said. “We had red dots everywhere.” Retired French teacher Lynn Wilroy, a ceramic artist, throws basic forms on a potter’s wheel and then ornaments them with hand-formed additions in a process that takes about a week. She then res them, often more than once. Her nal ring is raku and pro duces unpredictable but ex citing results. Physician Sid Wilroy, who specializes in childhood genetic disorders, builds his pieces around found objects, including wood and bone, which he combines with clay to produce fanciful statuary inspired by his travels. His whimsical sense of humor is evident in many of his works including the King Kong series. The couple say they be lieve play is important to health and self realization. Sid Wilroy said most birth defects are caused by substance abuse and could be prevented if people spent time exploring themselves and their creativity.

Right: This sculpture by Cass Allen evokes the feminine spirit. Off yonder somewhere Special to the Times Fans of smart, funny Florida nonction can welcome author Jeff Klinkenberg to Apalachicola this Friday, Oct. 18, beginning at 6 p.m. The place is Cafe con Leche, 234 Water Street. Tapas and sangria will be served. Books will be signed. Downtown Books will be there to han dle book sales. Klinkenberg, who grew up in Miami, began work ing in newspapers at age 16, and has been writing for the Tampa Bay Times since 1977. He calls him self a “cantankerous grayhaired bastard,” but his habitual grin and deep af fection for all things “real Florida” belie that. The tales in his lat est book, “Alligators in B-Flat,” introduce the reader to some of the most interesting and offkilter people and places between the Panhandle and Key West. The title story recounts Klinkerberg’s investiga tion of a National Public Radio report about alliga tors responding with mat ing bellows to a sustained low B-at note. This involves a trip to the kitschy Gatorland theme park in the com pany of two classi cally-trained mu sicians with tubas. “Oil Boy” is a prole of Apala chicola’s own art ist and barrista extraordinaire Frederic Kahler. Other pieces in troduce Tommy Ward and the 13 Mile Seafood and Trucking Company, the Indian Pass Raw Bar, Bradley’s Country Store in Tallahassee, and Sop choppy’s worm-grunting Revell family. He also has some very nice things to say about a certain Water Street cafe and an “amazing” little Apalach bookstore. “If Jeff Klinkenberg isn’t careful, he might give journalism a good name,” wrote famed Florida hu morist and fellow news paperman Carl Hiaasen, in praising Klinkenberg’s work. Friday booksigning to welcome Jeff Klinkenberg JEFF KLIN kK ENBERG Alina Marie Pelt, one of God’s little angels, will turn 4 years old on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013. Alina is the sweet daughter of Mary Rae Nowling, of Eastpoint, and Willie Pelt, of Port St. Joe. She has one sister, Shirah Pelt, and one brother, Obie Lee Pelt, 2. Her grandparents are Aline and William, Kend ell Shiver, the late Wayne Nowling, Steve Pelt and Mary Pelt, who is now with our Lord in heaven. Great-grandparents are John and Jean Shiver, Kenneth Shiver, the late Ottis Russell II, who has went to be with the Lord, and Charles and Mary Lou King, who is caring for the two little angels at this time.

Allie Alford Thacker passed away on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, at 92. He was not only our family hero, but a true American hero. A member of the greatest gener ation, he was born on Nov. 10, 1920 to Trudie Williams Thacker and George Lester Thacker of Pear Valley, Texas. He graduated from Lohn High School where he ex celled in basketball, football, and track. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1941. During World War II, he ew 35 missions out of Guam, and was the rst to complete those 35 missions. He received the Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal, Victory medal as well as other medals throughout his career. The Silver Star was giv en when the formation that he led was attacked by 40 enemy ghters. His aircraft sustained 73 holes caused by 30 mm and 20 mm caliber bullets. Two of the other aircraft had re break out, and Al, seeing them defenseless, left the safety of his formation to draw the enemy ghters away from the other aircraft. This gave the crew members of the other aircraft a chance to bail out, and this action saved their lives. Later, while in the ser vice, he was stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base where he met and married Ruth Cesaroni of Apala chicola. Al retired from the military in 1967 and moved to the Rio Grande Valley where he worked as a pilot for Louisiana Strawberry Pro duce Company until he retired perma nently. He moved to the Lake Jackson area to be closer to his children and grandchildren. Retirement allowed him the pleasure of pursuing his passion for golf where he obtained several holes in one while in his 80s. In 2010 he was grand mar shal of the Veterans Day parade and an honoree as a Brazoria County Hometown Hero in 2011. Al was preceded in death by his parents, George and Trudy Thacker, broth ers, Elzo, Arvil, Durwood, Bowlie, Van Lester and daughter, Patricia.

Frank fought a long battle with cancer. God had other plans and called him home. Frank was born Feb. 11, 1955, and was raised on Marylands East ern Shore. He was a third genera tion waterman who spent the past 40-odd years sh ing commercially. Somehow in this tough industry he remained selfreliant and self-employed, and loved every minute of it. Frank was one of those rare breeds whom his friends could count on to be there and his family held in high honors. He did not lie, cheat or steal a rare breed indeed. Frank shed the east ern coast of Florida for the last 25 years, always making the boys at Water Street happy when he came to town on The Putter. Then it was The Jen nie and for the next 10 years he was chasing tuna across the gulf. Every menu in town boasted fresh Capt. Franks Tuna. It was at this time, he decided to stay, live and work here in Apalachicola, and was lucky enough to run into the love of his life sitting on the porch of The Gibson Inn. He noticed a gal sitting there who was cutting up fruit and cheese to help with Happy Hour. He liked her knife skills and the rest was history... Their eyes met and it turned into the longest date of Peggy Foleys live. They became insepara ble, two peas in a pod, right up until his last breath. In 2007, when the Suzie Sea ran aground on the north side of Dog Island while investigating the possible sponge business, Frank was instrumental with the salvage of that boat. The number of boats Frank saved was too many to count. He was the rst one there to help with a wetsuit in January to nding the right part to make things work. The working waterman has a tough enough life; Frank found joy in help ing his brother shermen wherever possible. When the BP oil was frightening close, he contacted his good friend Larry Simms, head of Maryland Watermens As sociation. Frank and Larry thought it was a good idea to barge up Apalachicola oysters for safekeeping until the mess was cleaned up. But too much red tape these days for that good idea made sure it never materialized. He was involved in the Gulf BP oil spill cleanup, which cut into his soul. His passion was to do whatever he could to help. Years back when there was a blight, they brought Apalachicola oysters to replenish the Chesapeake Bay. He was an advocate for Save the Bay Foundation for the Chesapeake Bay. As a young man, Frank also honed his skills in carpentry, which came in handy along the way. Many will remember that he became a pretty good golfer, could throw an atlatl with ease, and was very proud of his poolshooting skills. Collecting Indian relics and being outdoors with nature were his passions. He loved animals and rescued many. Frank was an intelligent guy with a great sense of humor. He was always the light in any gathering, and will be greatly missed. Frank was preceded in death by his brother, Kev in, and stepfather, Frank. He is survived by his mother, Betty Lou Taylor; his life partner and care giver, Peggy Foley; his sis ters, Mellissa (Jeff) Finney, Kristi (Miles) Parsons and Sherry Craner; and a brother, Gerald Rodney. Frank was the proud fa ther of three children, Tay lor Rodney, Chelsea (Jon) Smith and Nick Rodney. He was looking forward to welcoming his rst grandchild into the world this month. A Celebration of Life was held Saturday after noon, Oct. 12, in the Ga lena Funeral Home of Ste phen L. Schaech, Galena. In lieu of owers, a do nation in Franks name to your local humane society would be appreciated. He also leaves behind his two devoted fourlegged rescued com panions Little Man and Scooter. They will miss him dearly as well. He will surely be re membered by anyone who came across his path. We would like to have a remembrance for Frank and say our nal goodbyes on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 1 p.m. at Battery Park. After, well proceed to the boats for his last shing trip. Anyone with their own boat who would like to join in the procession out to the bay may feel free to join us. Lets make this a spe cial sendoff for him and a joyous day to remember. Always in our hearts.Ellwood Franklin Rodney ELL WOOD FRANKLIN RODNEY Obituaries See ya at lunch, today! Sarge and Stacey will have a good meal prepared for us.

The closing day is set for Oct. 21 in state waters, so get them now! Good sized snapper are holding on \just about any wreck or sight you go to. Gag grouper and amber jack are also being caught on these same sites. Trout and red fish are still active this week. Good reports from Pig Island and Eagle Harbor are on the rise and plenty of fish are in St. Joe Bay. Some flounder action is hot in 20+ ft of water on the outside near shore wrecks. This should stay hot for a while, so try and find a good weather day. In the past, Journeys SGI, the island’s original adventure out tter, has hosted an event to promote paddling and give people an opportunity to compare kayaks. On Saturday, Journey’s SGI and Island Fit Stand Up Paddleboard Fitness expanded the event as the rst Paddle at the Park. Paddle at the Park was a satellite event for World Paddle for the Planet, supporting ecoconciousness and a healthier and happier environment. Proceeds of the event will be donated to the cause of educating and raising environmental awareness. More than 100 people visited Boy Scout Regatta Park to try out kayaks and stand up paddleboards (SUP). Samantha Fortunas, owner of Island Fit, led classes and gave demonstrations of SUP yoga throughout the day. The hosts provided drinks, hot dogs and later barbeque to participants. The highlight of the day was youth and adult races. Winners in the youth category on SUP were Jared Jake, rst place; Parker Anderson, second; and Jevon Jake, third. This was Jevon’s rst time paddling. Winners in the youth kayak category were Perry Stone, rst; Nash Ramsdell, second and Maya Itzkovitz, third. Adults did a two-mile paddle. Winners in the male division for kayaks were Colter Foster, rst at 34 minutes and 31-seconds; Larry Rhodes, second and Mickey Phillips, third. In the women’s division, Jessie Schull took rst place followed by Stacy Ezell. There was no third place winner. Winners in the adult SUP race were, for males, Dan Fortunas with 31-minutes and 25-seconds; D.J. Flint, second and Louis Heckler, third. In the women’s division, Sam Fortunas was rst; Katie Derrick second and Mandy Andrews was third. – By LOIS SWOBODA Back in the paddle again Special to the Times New birding sites will boost tourism in rural counties Florida is the No. 1 wildlife-viewing destination in the United States for good reason. The Sunshine State has hundreds of top-notch birding and wildlife-viewing sites, including worldfamous locations such as Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Everglades National Park and Honeymoon Island State Park. For those willing to venture off the beaten track, however, exceptional wildlifeviewing experiences await in Florida’s less-traveled rural counties. Would it surprise you to know that nearly half of Florida’s counties are of cially designated as rural? Not surprisingly, all have great wildlife viewing opportunities. However, rural counties have historically been underrepresented on the Trail. In fall 2011 Trail staff launched an outreach initiative to boost the birding sites in rural areas. They visited and evaluated each nominated site in spring and summer 2012. All nominations and staff reviews are also shared with a steering committee to ensure that each site meets the criteria for inclusion on the Trail. As a result, 23 sites in 15 counties were formally accepted as part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail in 2013. These sites are owned and managed by many state and local government agencies, as well as private landowners. Three counties Calhoun, De Soto, and Union are included for the rst time, and all but three of Florida’s counties now have at least one GFBWT destination. NEW PANHANDLE BIRDING SITES • Chipley Park/Lake DeFuniak (Walton) • Chipola River Greenway: Hinson Conservation & Recreation Area; Chipola River Greenway: Butler Tract and Apalachee Wildlife Management Area: Zone A (Jackson) • Blountstown Greenway Complex/ Sam Atkins Park (Calhoun) • St. Joseph Bay State Buffer Preserve (Gulf) • Apalachicola River Ramble Trail and Boardwalk (Franklin) New Panhandle birding sites LOOK, UP IN THE SKY A Swallow Tail Kite feeding on a catch. Carrabelle has hooked this year’s Florida By Water “Boaters’ Best Getaway” award. Each year a city is selected based on criteria that include, but are not limited to, boat ramp access, water accessible accommodations, dockside dining, boating locations/activities and marina availability. This year’s award was presented to Sheila Hauser of Southern Breeze Media and Suzanne Zimmerman, executive director of the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce, on Sept. 28. Rusty Gardner, president of Florida By Water, said he chose the community because it is truly a boater’s paradise. “No big chains in this small town; here you will nd only local accommodations, all reasonably priced,” he said. “Some of Florida’s best seafood and water access to such popular boating destinations as Dog Island, St. George Island and the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Carrabelle River.” Gardner said the quaint shing village also offers plenty to do when you’re not on the water, boasting of three museums where colorful stories come to life as volunteers guide you through the history of World War II, the history of Carrabelle or the Crooked River Lighthouse. “These people are friendly. The town is about boating and shing,” said Gardner. “Nothing else seems to matter, and that’s why it’s the perfect getaway for boaters.” Hauser said Carrabelle is honored to be the “Boaters’ Best Getaway” destination in Florida. “The tourism industry is a huge part of our economy and our visitors love to go boating and shing in our local waters,” she said. “Receiving this award from Florida By Water will promote and market Carrabelle not only in Florida, but on a national level.” For more information visit http://carrabelle.org or www. oridabywater.com.

DANA WHALEY | Special to the Times Top-ranked Blountstown stayed unbeaten with a 49-0 rout to spoil Franklin County’s homecoming Friday night at Mikel Clark Stadium.

Once again, the coaching staff is stressing that we get better each and every day.” At halftime, Haleigh Ming was crowned homecoming queen. Other senior candidates were Deborah Dempsey, Marlyn Lee, Adriana Reeder and Jessica Shields.

Speed bumps on Crooked River Road At their Tuesday meeting, county commissioners voted unanimously to install four speed bumps on Crooked River Road to calm traf c in the area. Residents of St. James Bay hired an engineer to do a traf c study because of the continuing complaints about speeders on the road. The study found the average speed on the residential street is 70 mph. The engineer recommended the installation of four speed humps, which are low-pro le traf c calming devices, in speci c areas in the St. James Bay Golf Course area. The sites identi ed in the study are appropriate, according to county consultant Clay Smallwood, from Preble-Rish Engineers. Residents of St. James Bay are willing to pay for half the cost of installation if the county will pay for the other half. The total estimated cost for installation, including signage, is $11,149, so each share will be approximately $5,600. Oyster farming workshop on Nov. 15 The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences in cooperation with the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has tentatively scheduled a second workshop on oyster farming on Nov. 15 at the Florida State University Coastal Marine Lab at Turkey Point. Dr. John Supan, sea grant oyster specialist, is scheduled to be the featured speaker. It was a tight race, with the team sponsored by Dodd Title coming in one stroke ahead of the second place contender in the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce’s 10th annual golf tournament last week. At 55 points, the team of Brett Johnson, captain Robbie Johnson, Stacy Kirvin and Tyler Poloronis topped the nine teams on a gorgeous afternoon Oct. 10 at St. James Bay Golf Resort. The second place team, captained by Zach Childs, included Matt Terry, Steve Newman and Zach Ferrell. Third place, with 59 strokes, were Tim Butler, Travis Sheridan, Johnny Sheridan and Levi Millender. Each member of the winning quartet took home $100 gift certi cates from the St. James Bay pro shop. The second-place winners each walked with $75 worth and third place earned $50 per player. Poloronis was closest to the pin on No. 2, and St. James Bay golf pro Rob Burlison was closest No. 11. Nola Tolbert, manager of the Crooked River Grill, had the longest drive in the women’s division, and Terry had the longest drive for men. All four were awarded free rounds of golf, but Tolbert and Burlison donated theirs back to the event. Chamber Director Anita Grove said the tourney earned more than $2,200. — By LOIS SWOBODA The Franklin County High School varsity girls golf team continued to build on an outstanding rst season last week as they took fourth place out of 10 teams in the Big Bend Invitational. The Lady Seahawks nished one stroke better than fth-place Leon at the invitational, held at Killearn Country Club on Oct. 8. The order of nish was winner Chiles; runner-up John Paul II; and third place Maclay. Behind Franklin County were 5) Leon; 6) Florida High; 7) Wakulla; 8) Lincoln; 9) Godby and 10) Rickards “It was a good test, and playing an 18-hole match should help prepare us for our district tournament next week,” head coach Scott Collins said. On Oct. 10, Franklin County defeated Wakulla and Branford in their nal home match of the season. “We didn’t play our best this week, but the girls keep nding ways to win” Collins said. The team ended the regular season with 17 wins and six losses. On Tuesday, Oct. 15, the Lady Seahawks traveled to Tallahassee to play at Hilamin Golf Course against district foes John Paul, Maclay, Florida High, Branford and Aucilla to try and extend their season by qualifying for the regional tournament a week later in Pensacola. “We have a tough district, but our girls are focused and are putting in extra time to try and make the playoffs” Collins said. — By DAVID ADLERSTEIN News BRIEFS SEAHAWK MIDDLE-SCHOOLERS FINISH SEASON DANA WHALEY | Special to the Times Named at halftime as this year’s homecoming king and queen were Haleigh Ming and Alex Causey.

In fact, it was far more likely that Stephen King would write a sequel to “The Shining” some 36 years after the original book was rst released. Books like “Double Exposure” don’t get sequels. Or so I thought. But here I am witnessing the release of “Separa tion Anxiety,” the spiritual sequel to “Double Exposure” some four years after its initial release.” In this follow-up to “Double Exposure,” Lister once again takes readers down the rural routes and river swamps of wild North Florida. Sixteen-year-old Shelby Emma Summers has dis appeared on a late-August day from her famous artist mom’s lodge on the banks of the Apalachicola River, just outside the small town of Tupelo. Out in the Gulf, a savage hurricane project ed to make landfall in the Panhandle intensies and expands. Has Shelby been abduct ed or is she merely skipping school? Is she with her boy friend, Julian, and if she is, does that make her more or less safe? A fast-paced twisting and turning mystery, a harrow ing hurricanic adventure. Told in prose that is poetic, evocative, and muscular, “Separation Anxiety” is a timeless, resonate literary thriller of heartbreak and heroism. “Separation Anxiety” is a far more complex novel than “Double Exposure,” Lister said. “It has far more characters, far more plot, and is a lot larger, but the two books share a lot in common. They denitely have the same DNA.” “Separation Anxiety” also includes the appear ance of Sam Michaels and Daniel Davis from another popular thriller of Lister’s, “Burnt Offerings.” “In a way, it’s a sequel to “Burnt Offerings” too,” Lister said. “But more in a literal than spiritual sense. In fact, as I think about it, “Separation Anxiety” is truly a marriage of “Double Exposure” and “Burnt Of ferings.” It’s funny, but I haven’t really thought of it that way until this moment, but that is exactly what it is.” The release of “Separa tion Anxiety” includes a new special edition release of “Double Exposure” with a new cover, lots of photo graphs, and an introduction and signature by bestsell ing author Michael Con nelly, who has championed the book since he rst sat down and read it cover to cover without getting up four years ago. Connelly commented that “Double Exposure” is absolutely riveting! Elegiac prose, insightful character ization and a wonderfully ingenious plot.” Lister publishes sequel to ‘Double Exposure’ MICHAEL L L ISTER novelist

At the same time, the newly con structed adjacent classroom build ing, named the Patricia Fletcher Vice Meeting Facility, will be dedicated in her memory. Trish was a co-founder as well as vice-president of WGHS and was an ardent, vocal supporter. She can never be replaced and will always be missed by the society. The Greensboro Depot was built in 1907 (year of the rst operation of the AN RR) and is the only remaining original depot on the line which runs from River Junction (Chattahooch ee) in Gadsden County to Port St. Joe in Gulf County. About 40 years ago, the depot was moved from its original location between the main track and the side track to a nearby lot. It was then remodeled by Nelson Clark and used as his barber shop as well as a thrift shop operated by area Method ist churches. Several years ago Progress Ener gy built a transmission line through this area of Gadsden County and many miles of the line follow the AN RR right-of-way. The old depot build ing site was in the direct path of the transmission line through Greens boro. WGHS saw the need to advo cate for the saving of this piece of history. Following many discussions be tween WGHS, Progress Energy, and St. Joe Land Company, a nearby lot was donated by St. Joe, and Progress Energy contributed a grant defray ing the cost of relocation of the depot. The depot is once again on a lot ad jacent to the tracks. The society is most appreciative of this grant and the property on which to relocate the depot building. Without the coopera tion of these two corporations work ing with WGHS, this saving of a piece of Florida’s history would not have been possible. West Gadsden Historical Soci ety was fortunate to receive a grant through the U.S. Department of Transportation by which it was able to restore the depot and construct an adjoining classroom building. Con crete Services, Inc. of Quincy did a wonderful job with this project. Now the work begins furnishing the depot in order for it to become a rst-class railroad museum. The museum will not be only for items pertaining to the Apalachicola Northern Railroad, but will include any and all railroad items. The So ciety encourages anyone with copies of old AN RR or any train and depot photos, documents, newspaper clip pings, or other artifacts to contact us about sharing these important pieces of railroad history. Any items you might have that you wish to donate or loan to this museum will be greatly appreciated. Please be sure to remind all your relatives, friends, and neighbors of this event.

At the Oct. 15 county meeting, Airport Director Alan Pierce told commissioners the AAB had discussed Randall Terrys lease on the commercial hangar formerly occupied by Garlick Environmental Associates and recommended Terry be allowed to lease the building and hangar for $1,000 per month for 20 years. Terry originally leased an existing commercial hangar for $500 monthly. That hangar, largely unoccupied since its construction in 2004, needs extensive work to convert it from storage to of ces for use by Terrys vehicle transport company. The lowest bid to renovate the hangar, $350,000, came in at more twice the available funding. Commissioners on Oct. 1 unanimously approved leasing the Garlick hangar to Terry for six months at $1,200 monthly while they sought additional funds for the renovation. Chairman Cheryl Sanders asked Tuesday why the advisory board recommended a lower rent than had already been agreed to by the commission. Pierce said $1,200 a month was a temporary arrangement and the AAB had determined no money was available for the required renovations. Pierce said Terry proposed the $1,000 rent because he didnt want to wait six months for a nal decision on the cost of leasing the hangar. He said under the new agreement, the suggested rent of $1,000 could be reviewed every ve years, and increases would be capped at 20 percent. Pierce said Terry would not be allowed to sublet space in the hangar without county permission.Record-breaking aviator visits Apalach airportBy DAVID ADLERSTEIN653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In 1873, the great French novelist Jules Verne penned a classic adventure novel about how an English gentleman and his French valet circumnavigated the globe. Phileas Fogg and Passepartout went Around the World the Eighty Days to win a wager of 20,000 pounds. CarolAnn Garratt ew around the world in about eight days. And in doing so, she set a world record and raised thousands of dollars for research to cure ALS, the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as Lou Gehrigs Disease. Last month, the dauntless aviator paid an unhurried visit to Apalachicola Regional By DAVID ADLERSTEIN and MATTHEW BEATON653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Florida Cabinet on Oct. 10 approved a single oyster farming lease in the Apalachicola Bay, but Franklin County of cials and an oystermen representative arent happy about it. The Cabinets four members governor, attorney general, chief nancial of cer and agriculture commissioner voted unanimously on the two-acre, 10-year aquaculture lease. Andrew Arnold applied for the lease, which is located in St. George Sound, part of the Apalachicola Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, to harvest clams and oysters, according to documents from the Cabinet meeting. The documents indicated Franklin County commissioners sent a letter supporting the lease, but a county of cial said thats not the complete story. We didnt want any leases be it Arnolds or anybody else to interfere with the traditional harvesting of oysters in the bay, the traditional uses of the bay, said Alan Pierce, director of administrative services director, in an interview last week. The board sent a letter of support for the lease back in 2011, which it followed up with a letter Aug. 8. The letter mentions the Arnold lease, but its unclear whether it supports the lease or is making an exception for the lease while expressing opposition to a larger aquaculture lease program. That plan, which was halted, was based on a 20year-old project for about 100 two-acre lease sites separated into four aquaculture use zones in the bay. At Tuesday mornings county County seeks standard pay gradesBy LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com A proposed wage classification plan would end across-the-board raises to county employees and require supervisor evaluations. On Oct. 1, county legal advisor Lucille Turner of the Carson and Adkins law firm presented commissioners with a plan to formally classify county employees and set standardized wage increases based on seniority and performance. The county commission has yet to plug in numbers to the wage classifications and is expected to consider adoption of the plan in the weeks ahead. Turner said the new plan applies only to employees of the county commission, such as the road department and solid waste, but hoped constitutional officers would follow the county lead in adopting new rules. Turner said she did not focus on the rules adopted by other counties in creating the guidelines. Youre not losing people or having trouble recruiting, she said, So we must be doing some things right. She pointed out that county employees salaries are based largely on seniority and that under the proposed system, employees could keep their years of service when moving from job to job as an incentive to remain with the county. She said the proposed rules would not be a part of standing county policy because the rules would be reviewed every year when the budget is being prepared. Under the proposed system, all employees are classified under one of 35 job titles. The county keeps the right to create new positions as needed. Employees would also be grouped into pay grades. Anyone having worked less than six months would be considered a probationary trainee. At six months an employees is reclassified as Grade I, the base pay rate, after successfully completing a supervisor evaluation. Employees would be eligible for a hike to Grade II after two years of work and a successful evaluation.

Herearesomerecentcommentsfromourpatients: WeemsMedicalCenterEastwillbeclosed Saturday,October19thandwillreopenonMonday,October21st. Airport. The occasion was to return County Planner Alan Pierces brother-in-law Bill Whit l ey, and his brother Wes Whitley, to the airport to pick up the plane they had left there a week earlier because of inclement weather on a shing weekend trip. CarolAnns brief stop offered an opportunity to learn about her record-breaking ight and her dedication to the cause of de f eating the disease that took her mothers life a little more than a decade ago. The daughter of an avid ight enthusiast, whose three children all became licensed pilots, CarolAnn grew up in Pennsylvania and rst soloed in 1972 to become a hobby pilot. She went on to the University of Wisconsin, where she studied mechanical engineer i ng, and later became a manager with a Fortune 500 company. Her love of ying took off, so to speak, in 1996 when she com p leted her commercial license, and she now lives near Ocala, adjacent to her own runway from which she can lift off in her 1993 single-engine 200-horsepower J Model Mooney. It was in that plane, seated next to her friend Carol Foy from Texas, and in front of two 60-gal l on containers that replaced the rear seat, that CarolAnn em b arked in December 2008 on h er world record ight for a Class C1-C xed-wing plane. Her mom had died six years earlier from ALS, and in those years she had used her ying skills, including a ight around the world, to expand her fund r aising effort to raise tens of thousands of dollars on behalf of ghting the disease. Its like being entombed in your own body, she said. Men t ally, theyre 100 percent there. Most people with the disease are between 35 and 55, typically about 40 with a young family, CarolAnn said. Theyre think i ng theres some chemical com p onent, some chemical trigger, she said. Theyre getting some w here. Things are h appening. Of the roughly $300,000 she has raised over the last decade, most of it has gone to the ALS Therapy Development Institute, a Cambridge, Mass., nonprot biotechnology organization dedi c ated to developing effective treatments for ALS. The record-breaking ight, which took 18 months to plan and a little more than eight days to complete, was westbound from Florida to Hawaii and then across the Pacic Ocean to New Zealand and Australia, and then on to Singapore, India, the Sey c helles to South Africa, then Egypt, to Europe and across the Atlantic to Florida. The ight landed at Orlando International Airport about an hour before t he bones of toddler Caylee Anthony were discov e red, so attention was diverted to a heartbreaking news story, rather than an inspiring one. The two women stopped just eight times as they hopped across the globe, alternating the shifts, with just one night of a full eighthour sleep. They almost doubled the old record, which had been 54.6 miles per hour, by achieving an average of 115.35 mph. We beat it by minimum ground time. It will be very dif cult to break, CarolAnn said. That was tough, tough work. She has chronicled her ad v entures in two books, Upon Sil v er Wings: Global Adventure in a Small Plane and Upon Silver Wings II: World-Record Adven t ure. You can also read about her ight on www.alsworldight. com. F rom April 2011 to March 2012, CarolAnn once again ew around the world, but this time it was at a much more leisurely pace, meandering around the globe to share her adventures everywhere from Bosnia to Bru n ei, from Istanbul to Indonesia, and parts in between. In addition to her dedication to ending the scourge of ALS, Caro l Ann ies more than 300 hours a year, including ying students with the Young Eagles program, the sick and needy with Angel Flights and cadets with the C ivil Air Patrol. In the summertime, she ies around the U.S. making presen t ations. And sometimes, she even nds time to y a couple friends back to the Panhandle to retrieve a plane. Pierce said it was necessary to reach an immediate agree ment with Terry because Jack sonville physician Randy Ran dolph wants to rent the 2004 han gar originally leased to Terry. Pierce said there might be sufcient funds to equip the 2004 hangar for Randolphs needs and that Randolph was willing to pay $350 monthly for use of the hangar. P ierce said Lee Lewis, of AV CON, the airports engineering consultant, is reviewing the bids to see if the $94,000 in grant funds targeted for the 2004 hangar is sufcient to produce a building suitable for Randolph. Pierce said Randolph could rent a teehangar until a decision about the 2004 hangar is reached, but wants a timely answer to his request. Sanders said she was con cer ned the airport board had suggested a reduced rent for Terry in opposition to the fee al ready set by the county. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked if it was possible to make the 2004 hangar Federal Aviation Administration compliant for less than the low bid of $350,000. Pierce said it might be possible and that Terry wanted his ofce space to be upstairs which in creased the cost of renovation. Commissioner Noah Lock ley asked why Terry should be allowed to rent the building for less than the $1,200 monthly paid by Garlick and Associates. If you dont keep this thing level, youre going to go in the hole, Sanders said. She sug gested the difference in rent might be split between Randolph and Terry. Pierce said the AAB expect ed to collect $1,000 monthly from Terry and $500 monthly from Randolph. Right now its sitting empty, Commissioner Smokey Parrish said. Right now were generat ing no funds out of it. Jackel said she thought the Garlick hangar had been leased at the last meeting. County At tor ney Michael Shuler said Ter r y has not yet signed a lease. Im like Smokey, Sanders said. I want to see it rented out, too, but I dont want to see us go ing in the hole over it. Parrish said if the 2004 han gar was only going to bring $350 monthly in rent, he would pre fer the building be used to store county equipment and protect it from the weather. He said equip ment storage and maintenance was the original intended use of the 2004 hangar. Parrish moved to lease the Garlick hangar to Terry for $1,000 and use the 2004 hangar to store county equipment. Sanders said the county at tor ney had already prepared the lease to rent the Garlick hangar at $1,200 and that an advisory board should not con tradict a decision by the county commission. All these advisory boards are in my craw, this morning, she said. They come to us for rec ommendations. We have to work together. I dont want conict between all these other advisory boards but at the same time, the ultimate decision comes down to this board. Were the ones that take the ack from the public. Commissioner Noah Lockley said thats a big building for $1,000 a month. Jackel said It kind of looks like the tail wagging the dog. She suggested the commission leave the temporary lease in ef fect and renegotiate when the lease is up in six months. Parrish moved to leave the six-month lease in place fol lowed by a ve-year lease at $1,000 monthly. The motion passed unanimously.

Yes, I was there and this is what happened: The by-laws of the Franklin County Senior Citizen Council specify that an annual meeting be held on the second Wednesday of September. This is called a Senior Council meeting and its the one time each year that property owners and residents over 50 years old get to vote for members of their board of directors. About 40 of us showed-up at the Carrabelle Senior Center on Wednesday, Sept. 11. When we walked in, the board member at the front desk told us, If youre here for the annual meeting, it was held yesterday! At that point most left, but a dozen or so stayed to see if we could nd out what happened. The center was open to the public and perhaps 20 people were engaged in various activities, but when we sat down and started talking, a senior center of cer confronted us and said that if we didnt leave immediately we would be charged with trespassing. We didnt leave and shortly a Carrabelle city police of cer arrived. He was polite and professional and left a few minutes later without arresting anybody. We talked things over a bit and decided to attend the next board of directors meeting on Oct. 9. There were about 40 of us at that next meeting and we asked that a date be set for a meeting of the Senior Council of Franklin County. The president said, No! Period. No explanation whatsoever. Just, No! Then a member of the board of directors made a motion to schedule a Senior Council meeting and another board member seconded it. The vote was 5-3 against. At that point two board of directors members resigned and walked out. And as they say on Mullet Beach, Thattheres the story.Michael JulianCarrabelleGovernment is working on local levelIn this day and age of malfunctioning government, I thought Id share my good news! Government is working, at least on a local level. As you may be aware, Kentucky Avenue in Lanark went under water about 6six weeks ago. My boyfriend and I are the only permanent residents that were affected by this, but you would have thought there were at least 100 taxpayers living there with the wonderful response we received. Our county commissioner, Cheryl Sanders, came out on the rst day (a Sunday to boot) and offered any assistance she could, both on a county and private level. Ms. Sanders has been in touch ever since and always has time to talk to me even if its just to let me vent. Cheryl sent out the public works people, and they have been working with us to nd a solution to this problem. Tommy of public works needs a special mention and our heartfelt thanks, as he also has been very available and receptive to all our ideas and suggestions. Now I know that some of the weekenders have been unhappy and made some grumbling noises, but as they do not live here, and didnt have to live with four feet of water and getting in and out of their home by boat for three weeks, I believe they should be a little more patient and give the county time to help us nd a solution. Once again I just want to thank the Franklin County government for all the good things they do, and especially Cheryl and Tommy.Susan Tolle Letters to the EDITOR Special to the TimesA person recently asked me an interesting question. He asked, Who are you and what are you doing here? This was a great question, and I was happy to reply that my parents raised me in Carrabelle for 10 of the rst 12 years of my life, that I had returned to Franklin County on numerous summer vacations during my high school years and that I have maintained close connections to Carrabelle and Franklin County during my years in Bible college and while my wife and I served as missionaries for over two decades. Additionally, I noted that I now am the pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Carrabelle. An equally accurate and signi cantly abbreviated answer would have been, I am here because Carrabelle and Franklin County are home! The question noted above stirred my heart to communicate my deeply held feelings for Carrabelle and Franklin County so that others might understand the value represented by residence here on the Forgotten Coast. The people of Franklin County and, especially for me, of Carrabelle, represent a unique blend of Southern culture and old fashioned values. For instance, our churches represent closeknit people groups that are as familiar to many of us as our own families. Other institutions, such as our school with its athletic teams, marching band, cheerleading squads and other extracurricular groups are signi cant points of reference for those who value Franklin County as home. For me to look across a room and remember, I played football with that guy, or I remember the time we all went on a church youth trip is to re ect on good times and to rejoice in the opportunity to know good people. Additionally, childhood friendships have placed deep roots of loyalty and enduring feelings of kinship in my heart. Of course, Franklin County has changed a great deal since I moved here in 1963, and it is wise to recognize that changing technology and infusions of new ideas that come our way as possible opportunities to better our community and add spice to our community. On the other hand, I view the people of our county as good, simple people who are resourceful and intelligent; most of the residents of Franklin County place a high value on family, friendship and other long-time relationships. We are quick to communicate messages of Southern hospitality, and relatively slow to express anger and other negative feelings. On the other hand, where our traditions are challenged or our culture is criticized, we are quick to defend the positive aspects of both our heritage from all comers. As an example, when I was a young man, I had the privilege of working in the seafood industry. I am grateful that I came to Christ, and I am amazed that God would use me as a pastor and preacher, but I would have been content to stay home, never leave for Bible college and certainly never spend decades away from home had God not called me away from home! While I am grateful for the religious and legal education that I have received away from Carrabelle, there are still times when I wish I was still simply working at the sh house or the oyster house or the crab house. I have worked in all three environments; the work was hard but satisfying. The hours were long, but I interacted with great people. I especially enjoyed the retail side of the seafood business where I met folks from the county as well as people from all over the United States and in fact the world. Most out-of-towners came and spent short periods of time here in our wonderful county. Others came, saw and stayed. Of course, because I did leave home when God called me, I have been able to serve Him all across the U.S. and in several foreign nations; my wife, Dee, and I met in her native Pennsylvania and both our children were born in that great commonwealth. Dee too has fallen in love with Franklin County, and she feels the same way I do. We can never really imagine leaving home again unless at the clear direction of God. My wifes background and heritage brings me to another thought about my love for this Unforgotten Coast. Over the decades our community has become more diverse. Many people from other locations have come and have fallen in love with several of the same cultural characteristics that have captured my heart. Some of them have made this area their homes and most feel the same deep respect that I do for our way of life. They have added their own spice to the dish that is Franklin County, and we are all richer for their contributions to our home. Thus, moving forward, we have a delicate balancing act facing our area. We have a need to respect the heritage of the past while we welcome the positive aspects brought to us from other places and different cultures. An adage that I use in church is relevant here: If we are not willing to strive for and adapt to positive change, then we are one step away from the institutional graveyard. On the other hand, if we make change that is not founded on the values expressed by our predecessors but merely for changes sake, then we will most likely not change for the good. Unwise change can even make Franklin County a place that would be unrecognizable as home to those of us who love our county. Therefore, I am committed to remembering to be grateful for the Franklin County that we have inherited. Our home may not be the most sophisticated place in Florida, but it has a sound foundation upon which we now have the opportunity to build. We have the privilege of serving our community so that we see it grow economically; moreover, we have the opportunity to be good examples to the generations that follow us if we can discern how to keep Franklin County rich in culture, wealthy in morality and prosperous economically. Why am I here? Because, I say, Here is home, and I love my house! May God bless Franklin County; may God bless our home.

Weems Memorial Hospitals board of directors. Why I came home to the Unforgotten Coast THE REV. HOMER INMAN MCMILLAN, IIGuest Column In fall, the world is an all-you-can-eat buffet for Florida black bears. Programmed to pack in extra calories before winter, bears can smell food a mile away and will eat almost anything. Bears may decide an over owing trash can is easier pickings than searching for acorns and berries. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds the public this is a critical time of year to properly store garbage, pet food and birdseed to keep bears out of places where people live and work. During the fall, bears with big appetites are less likely to linger in neighborhoods if people dont give them access to food. People can prevent problems with Florida black bears by safely securing garbage, putting out garbage cans the morning of pickup rather than the night before, and using bearresistant garbage cans or dumpsters. said David Telesco, FWCs bear management coordinator. Surveys of Florida communities with access to bear-resistant trash cans or dumpsters show the overwhelming majority are pleased with the results. The FWC is committed to helping the public keep bears out of garbage and out of neighborhoods, said Telesco. Now, were asking the public to help us better understand the range of the Florida black bear in the wild. Eastpoint veterinarian Dr. Hobson Fulmer of the Apalachicola Bay Animal Clinic said the practice had its rst bear attack come to the clinic Tuesday. It was a small dog that had to be euthanized because her injuries were so severe, he said. Most bear sighting are interesting and pleasant, but bear encounters with pets are not, Fulmer said. Bears ordinarily will not go out of their way to attack a dog or cat, but if they are cornered or attacked they will ght back, and the bear wins nearly every time. There are steps pet owners can take to prevent such incidences. First, eliminate anything that may attract a bear. Secure trash cans, as bear love to feed on garbage. Do not leave pet food or any other food outdoors, bears love dog and cat food. Clean BBQ grills after cooking or the bear will clean it for you. Most importantly, do not allow your pet outdoors unattended, especially at night. As bears become more active in fall, more people are also going outdoors for hunting, shing, hiking, biking and wildlife viewing. The FWC is asking the public to report sightings of Florida black bears or their tracks to a new Web page: https://public.myfwc. com/fwri/blackbear/. Biologists are especially interested in sightings of a female bear with cubs. The bear sightings Web page will help biologists update the map of where bears live in Florida. However, the Web page is only for sharing bear location information. FWC regional of ces remain the places for people to call for advice on how to resolve human-bear con icts. The Web page has the option for people to upload photos of bears or their tracks. But please do not approach bears to take photos of them. Black bears are generally not aggressive, but approaching them can make them defensive. Adult males typically weigh 250 to 400 pounds and can be as large as 600 pounds. Extra caution is appropriate when a mother bear and her cubs are sighted. Photos from game cameras are welcome. We know about prime bear habitats such as the Apalachicola National Forest, Ocala National Forest and Big Cypress National Preserve. While bear subpopulations are mainly centered on large public lands, bears also occur elsewhere, and those locations have been underreported, said Brian Scheick, FWC bear research biologist. Our bear range data is 11 years old, and we are excited about getting the publics help in identifying all the places where bears now live in Florida. What we learn from the new bear sightings Web page will inform the FWCs efforts to document bear distribution and help with future bear management decisions, Scheick said The black bear is a conservation success story in Florida, with the population growing from as few as 300 bears in the 1970s to an estimated population of more than 3,000 today.

LocalThe Times | A5Thursday, October 17, 2013commission meeting, it was clear by their comments to Cal Knickerbocker, head of the states aquaculture program, or their stony silence, that commissioners were not too pleased with the Cabinets decision. Im here to reaf rm our commitment to the Franklin County commission that the department wants to keep the lines of communication open, said Knickerbocker, noting the states Agriculture Department planned regular monthly visit to commission meetings. Whats the deal here? You all told us last month that aquaculture was gone, and then yall come in and tell us we just leased out some lease, Commissioner Noah Lockley said. So the letter we wrote saying that the board as a whole objected to that, that will go in the public record? asked Chair Cheryl Sanders. Do we have to do a letter every time a possible lease will come up? Pierce said last week the August letter spelled out the countys concerns, which include high salinity levels being unsuitable for growing oysters; possible con icts with mullet and ounder shermen; questions about enforcement on the lease; and a complaint that the state Agriculture Department appears to be promoting aquaculture over and to the detriment of their traditional role of maintaining the natural oyster bars. We knew (the Cabinet) had tabled the whole idea of leases. We did not know it was coming back for reconsideration, and we were not asked speci cally about Mr. Arnolds lease a second time, Pierce said. After viewing the countys letter, Agriculture Department spokeswoman Erin Gillespie said there was a bit of confusion. She said the county commissioners were speaking only about the 100 leases, not the one approved Oct. 10. She said the county sent no other letters about the approved lease. Asked if the county was informed a vote was taking place, Gillespie would only say the meeting agendas are posted online well in advance. It is my understanding that at recent meetings, the commission has continued to verbally support the Arnold lease, she said via email. There is a video of a recent meeting saying such but I dont have the link on hand. At a meeting earlier this year in Apalachicola, where aquaculture of cials outlined the largescale aquaculture zone proposal which they later shelved, Sanders had spoken about her high regard for Arnold personally. But there had been no speci c public discussion of his particular proposal at the meeting, which was not a formal meeting of the commissioners. He visited with you and you were supportive of his attempt, Knickerbocker said Tuesday. Thats the only lease. Knickerbocker said the state has received two additional requests by clam leaseholders in Alligator Harbor to use the full water column. He reiterated to of cials the state has no plans to move forward with large-scale aquaculture in Apalachicola Bay. We pulled those off the table and will not move forward with those, he said. We have no intentions of bringing any more to you without your comments rst. Franklin County Seafood Workers Association President Shannon Hartseld was beyond concerned about the approved lease and down-right mad. It will not help us at all, he said emphatically. Harts eld said aquaculture is done to allow a bay to purify itself after its been polluted, but thats not the problem in Apalachicola Bay, which is only starving for freshwater. The lack of freshwater ow down the river and into the bay is viewed as the main reason oyster harvests have declined severely in the area. Harts eld worried farming oysters will hurt the industry because theres no money to be made. Startup costs are $15,000 to $20,000, but a lease yields no more than $12,000 and $16,000 a year, he said, and oystermen already make $36,000 to $60,000 annually. At the last few meetings hes attended, Harts eld said the county commission has been totally against the aquaculture leases. He also said the oyster population is making a comeback thanks to higher-than-normal rainfall this year Weve got oysters growing right now. Weve been getting good freshwater. And weve got oysters coming back. This time next year well be catching oysters, he said. The heavy rains in the area arent the reason, though; its the rain farther north that feeds the Apalachicola River and ows down to the bay, Harts eld said. Scientists plan baywide studyKnickerbocker said the National Academy of Sciences is undertaking a yearlong, baywide study trying to determine a path forward, a future for the bay. Theyre looking for permanent xes, rather than short-term temporary issues. He said the academy is in the process of selecting a committee of experts in all areas, such as water ecology, water science, oyster science, aquaculture modeling, and is taking nominations through the end of this week. Knickerbocker said the academy will hold a series of meetings, including one here in the county in early December. We do want community input to that, he said. They need to hear from the stakeholders to help them move forward on their study. Commissioner Smokey Parrish said he thought the data could be useful in the countys case before the Gulf Consortium. This bays been studied to death. Right now we need some help, he said. Knickerbocker said the academys experts will have the task to assimilate all of those projects and come up with a most meaningful path forward. The study will look at aquaculture as one of the options. We dont know what their nding will be. They may think its great, they may think the bays not the place to do it. Well look at that and part of that process is to come back to you. We may reach a point where that (aquaculture) is what the community wants. Its not about aquaculture, he stressed. Its about xing the resource.

PAY from page A1pay raises after five years and after each additional five-year period of service up to Grade VII after 30 successful years of employment. If an employee fails to successfully pass an evaluation, his or her raise could be postponed and a salary decrease could result from a disciplinary demotion. Chairman Cheryl Sanders praised the plan. This is something we could go by that there wouldnt be a fight every budget cycle. This will end across-theboard raises and take that battle out of the budget. Assistant Finance Officer Erin Griffith said the plan would simplify preparation of the budget. When we go into the budget process, salary would be known based on record, she said. Commissioner Smokey Parrish said the system would encourage employees to cross train and learn new skills to advance. I think its a good thing myself, a more equitable and fairer way of doing it, said Sanders. Policy says what policy says. Lucy, this is what we want to do. Now lets plug in the real numbers. Sanders said she wanted to see increased education for department heads. Commissioner Pinki Jackel suggested Turner develop formal evaluation sheets for each position. Sanders asked Turner to include more specifics about evaluations in the proposal and return to the next county meeting with the altered plan. Commissioners voted unanimously to have her do so.

A Carrabelle man was among three men arrested last week in connection with a ring of thieves who stole heavy equipment. According to a news release from the sheriffs ofce, tn the early morning hours of Oct. 7, Carrabelle Police Ofcer Gary Hunnings and Franklin County Sheriffs Deputy Lt. Garrett Creamer discovered what appeared to be evidence that a tractor had been stolen. While investigating deputies discovered a large Kubota tractor hidden in a wooded area. After deputies conrmed the tractor was stolen, surveillance was established in the area and a short time later deputies observed Brandon W. Atkinson and Joshua T. Martin return and load the tractor onto a trailer and depart. A trafc stop was conducted and further investigation was conducted, which uncovered several thefts of heavy equipment from Franklin County as well as Wakulla, Gadsden, and Bay counties. As a result of this investigation deputies have recovered more than $127,000 in stolen heavy equipment. Atkinson, 36, Carrabelle, and Martin, 27, Crawfordville, an ofcer at Wakulla Corrections Institution, were arrested and each charged with 14 felonies, including 12 counts of grand theft over $300, grand theft over $20,000 and burglary or attempted burglary of a structure Ralph Rusty Pigott, 26, Crawfordville, was arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence. Martin is on leave with pay from his job at the correctional institution. Sheriff Mike Mock said the ring had been operating for some time, perhaps nine months to a year. Additional charges are pending as the investigation continues throughout the four counties. Its not clear how many tractors or equipment was stolen by the ring. If you think you may have been a victim call the Franklin County Sheriffs Ofce at 670-8500.

Law EnforcementA6 | The Times Thursday, October 17, 2013A Pensacola man was found dead in the parking area at the Ten Foot Hole marina in Apalachicola on Sunday morning.. Sometime during the early morning hours of Oct. 13, Robert Warren Smith, 60, is believed to have taken his own life with a shotgun. Jerry Weber and Clarice Powell, who had spent the night on Webers houseboat, noticed a man seated in a folding chair facing west when they left the marina to shop for breakfast early Sunday morning. On returning to the houseboat around 10 a.m., Weber commented that the man had not moved. Powell, a victims advocate for the Franklin County Sheriffs Ofce, said she feared Smith had suffered a heart attack, but on approaching the body, saw the shotgun. She asked Weber to call 911. The call was eventually made by a sherman on the wharf. Powell said Smith was seated next to his white Cadillac Escalade in a chair he had brought with him. Powell said she and several other persons who spent the night at the marina had heard a sound like a recracker between 1 and 2 a.m. The case remains under investigation by the Apalachicola Police Department. Powell said, based on identication found with the body, Smith was the captain of a cruise ship. She said there were two cigars near the chair, and a sealed note was found next to the body. Smith was a frequent visitor to Apalachicola. He was known to lay over at Scipio Creek and Ten Foot Hole when piloting boats through the area on the way to South Florida.By LOIS SWOBODAMan found dead near Battery ParkThe following report is provided by the Franklin County Sheriffs Ofce.

Glass, 58, Eastpoint, violation of probation (FCSO) Arrest REPORT Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers within Franklin County are continuing to address the illegal harvest of undersized oysters from Apalachicola Bay. Officers Martin, Cook, Brownell, Lipford and Gore have been focusing enforcement efforts into the inspection of commercially harvested oysters. At the end of September, they issued five misdemeanor citations to commercial harvesters for possession of undersized oysters. The size tolerance violations ranged from 43 to 93 percent undersized. Earlier this month, Officer Ramos was patrolling offshore when he stopped an inbound Alabama vessel. The boating safety inspection revealed the operator had failed to apply registration numbers to the vessel and had insufficient flares. The fisheries inspection revealed four greater amberjack measuring 22, 26, 27, and 28 inches in length. Ramos interviewed the two individuals, which resulted in two citations issued for undersized greater amberjack and warnings for over the bag limit of greater amberjack, improper display of registration numbers and insufficient number of flares. Officer Allen was on water patrol in Apalachicola Bay when he noticed what appeared to be a boat commercially harvesting oysters in a prohibited area. Allen set up surveillance and observed one individual tonging for oysters. He watched the subject harvest the oysters for a period of time and then conducted a resource stop. The fisherman was found to be in possession of commercial quantities of shellfish and was cited for harvesting oysters in a prohibited area. The oysters were returned to the water. FWC REPORT

LocalThe Times | A7Thursday, October 17, 2013 SaltyFlorida.com TouristDevelopmentCouncil CITYOFAPALACHICOLACENTERFORHISTORY,CULTURE&ART A couple of weeks ago now, the Apalachicola Municipal Library, in partnership with the Apalachicola Area Historical Society, put on the Heritage Dinner. This was the rst year if you dont count the Civil War Candlelight Dinner which was part of Authors in Apalach last fall, from which this event got its inspiration. The hope is the Heritage Dinner will be an annual event to support the library, and based on the reviews it looks like it will. The theme was steamboating, and several people came dressed for the occasion. Steamboating in and around Apalachicola occurred for a span of 100 years, so costumes varied. A sumptuous dinner was prepared by the Owl Caf, and the event took place in the Wine Room. Tables were decorated with red brocade along with magnolia, gloriosa lilies, ferns and other native greenery and the tradition of many candles lit the room. Close to 60 people attended and started with wine and oysters on the deck. Next year we may have to nd a larger venue, as there were folks who wanted tickets who did not get seats. Cost per ticket was $60, and after expenses the library took in some needed funds. Thank you all for supporting your city library, and thank you to the Owl for hosting the event. Authors in Apalach has not gone away, but has been re-scheduled for Saturday, March 15, 2014. A number of new authors will be joining this larger event, which will be taking place at the Fort Coombs Armory. Holding the whole event in one place will allow the expansion of forums on a number of topics, and include publishers and other book sellers. Save the date.. At Authors in Apalach, we will honor two historians who have contributed signicantly to the history of the area, Dr. William Warren Rogers (Outposts on the Gulf and At the Waters Edge with Lee Willis), professor emeritus from Florida State University; and Harry P. Owens (Apalachicola Before 1861, his doctoral thesis), professor emeritus from University of Mississippi. His thesis is being published for the rst time as a book by the library, and should be available for sale in March. In the meantime, the library is gearing up for its Seafood Festival Book Sale, Nov. 1 and 2, inside the fairgrounds. These book sales, the other held in May on Tour of Homes weekend, bring in needed funds for the library. Volunteers are badly needed to staff the booth, and you do not have to be an avid reader to help. Sign up at the library or call 653-8436. A schedule of two to three hour blocks is being set up. Its fun, and volunteers can select books to purchase before the crowds arrive. Caty Greene is the librarian for the Apalachicola Municipal Library. To reach her, call 653-8436.@THE LIBRARY Caty GreeneHistory buffs dress up for Heritage Dinner SPECIAL TO THE TT IMEs SThe Wine Room on the eve of the Heritage Dinner.Special to the TimesOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Calendar Girls would like to remind all women to schedule a mammogram for this year. This is not a onceand-done test, said Elaine Kozlowsky, president of Franklin Needs, Inc., the nonprofit organization responsible for producing the annual calendar that features area women in provocative dress as a spur to increase breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer has to start somewhere, she said. Even though you may have had a clear screening in the past, or have no family history, this is no guarantee that you wont fall victim to it. Franklin Needs will pay the cost of mammograms and followup testing to diagnosis if you are a Franklin County resident between the ages of 35 and 64 and have no health insurance. To schedule a mammogram, call Sacred Heart Hospital in Port St. Joe at 229-5802. If you are considered disadvantaged and need transportation, please contact Crooms Transportation in Apalachicola at 653-8132. There will be a minimal charge. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our local business community, civic and government organizations as well as the residents of Franklin County for your unwavering support. Without you this program would not be possible, said Elaine Kozlowsky. She said the group got a call last week from a Vestavia Hills, Alabama physician, who had stayed with his wife at the Water Street Hotel during a recent visit. While shopping at The Tin Shed, their favorite store, they purchased a copy of our 2013 calendar, Kozlowsky said. The purpose of his call was to purchase 30 more copies. He said the fact they were 2013 calendars didnt make any difference. It made us smile. She said that if necessary, the next calendar will come out for 2017. Until then, we are experimenting with a limited number of posters featuring the ladies of the 2009 calendar, said Kozlowsky. They will only be available at Artemis and The Grill in Apalachicola. The posters are standard size and are suitable for framing. Once again, we, the Calendar Girls, say thank you for your continued support, she said.

The Bowery Gallery, 149 Commerce Sreet, hosted the reception to introduce the Wilroys work to its Apalachicola clientele, along with the display of hundreds of works by other regional artists. Stained glass, textile arts, paper sculpture and ceramics were all on view as part of the Off yonder somewhere exhibit that last until the end of October. Gallery Director Leslie Wallace Coon said she was very pleased with the evening. It was wonderful. The party never got too crowded and people were buying, she said. We had red dots everywhere. Retired French teacher Lynn Wilroy, a ceramic artist, throws basic forms on a potters wheel and then ornaments them with hand-formed additions in a process that takes about a week. She then res them, often more than once. Her nal ring is raku and produces unpredictable but exciting results. Physician Sid Wilroy, who specializes in childhood genetic disorders, builds his pieces around found objects, including wood and bone, which he combines with clay to produce fanciful statuary inspired by his travels. His whimsical sense of humor is evident in many of his works including the King Kong series. The couple say they believe play is important to health and self realization. Sid Wilroy said most birth defects are caused by substance abuse and could be prevented if people spent time exploring themselves and their creativity.

Tapas and sangria will be served. Books will be signed. Downtown Books will be there to handle book sales. Klinkenberg, who grew up in Miami, began working in newspapers at age 16, and has been writing for the Tampa Bay Times since 1977. He calls himself a cantankerous grayhaired bastard, but his habitual grin and deep affection for all things real Florida belie that. The tales in his latest book, Alligators in B-Flat, introduce the reader to some of the most interesting and offkilter people and places between the Panhandle and Key West. The title story recounts Klinkerbergs investigation of a National Public Radio report about alligators responding with mating bellows to a sustained low B-at note. This involves a trip to the kitschy Gatorland theme park in the company of two classically-trained musicians with tubas. Oil Boy is a prole of Apalachicolas own artist and barrista extraordinaire Frederic Kahler. Other pieces introduce Tommy Ward and the 13 Mile Seafood and Trucking Company, the Indian Pass Raw Bar, Bradleys Country Store in Tallahassee, and Sopchoppys worm-grunting Revell family. He also has some very nice things to say about a certain Water Street cafe and an amazing little Apalach bookstore. If Jeff Klinkenberg isnt careful, he might give journalism a good name, wrote famed Florida humorist and fellow newspaperman Carl Hiaasen, in praising Klinkenbergs work.Friday booksigning to welcome Jeff Klinkenberg JEFF KLINkKENBERGAlina Marie Pelt, one of Gods little angels, will turn 4 years old on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013.

Col. Allie Alford Thacker passed away on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, at 92. He was not only our family hero, but a true American hero. A member of the greatest generation, he was born on Nov. 10, 1920 to Trudie Williams Thacker and George Lester Thacker of Pear Valley, Texas. He graduated from Lohn High School where he excelled in basketball, football, and track. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1941. During World War II, he ew 35 missions out of Guam, and was the rst to complete those 35 missions. He received the Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal, Victory medal as well as other medals throughout his career. The Silver Star was given when the formation that he led was attacked by 40 enemy ghters. His aircraft sustained 73 holes caused by 30 mm and 20 mm caliber bullets. Two of the other aircraft had re break out, and Al, seeing them defenseless, left the safety of his formation to draw the enemy ghters away from the other aircraft. This gave the crew members of the other aircraft a chance to bail out, and this action saved their lives. Later, while in the service, he was stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base where he met and married Ruth Cesaroni of Apalachicola. Al retired from the military in 1967 and moved to the Rio Grande Valley where he worked as a pilot for Louisiana Strawberry Produce Company until he retired permanently. He moved to the Lake Jackson area to be closer to his children and grandchildren. Retirement allowed him the pleasure of pursuing his passion for golf where he obtained several holes in one while in his 80s. In 2010 he was grand marshal of the Veterans Day parade and an honoree as a Brazoria County Hometown Hero in 2011. Al was preceded in death by his parents, George and Trudy Thacker, brothers, Elzo, Arvil, Durwood, Bowlie, Van Lester and daughter, Patricia. He is survived by his wife, Ruth, of Lake Jackson, sons Allie Jr. (Martha) of Van Vleck, Texas, Gary (Chu), of San Antonio, Texas, Charles (Judy), David (Susie),both of Lake Jackson, Texas, and daughter Mary Miller (Joe) of Pearland, Texas.

Oct. 6, 2013. Frank fought a long battle with cancer. God had other plans and called him home. Frank was born Feb. 11, 1955, and was raised on Marylands Eastern Shore. He was a third generation waterman who spent the past 40-odd years shing commercially. Somehow in this tough industry he remained selfreliant and self-employed, and loved every minute of it. Frank was one of those rare breeds whom his friends could count on to be there and his family held in high honors. He did not lie, cheat or steal a rare breed indeed. Frank shed the eastern coast of Florida for the last 25 years, always making the boys at Water Street happy when he came to town on The Putter. Then it was The Jennie and for the next 10 years he was chasing tuna across the gulf. Every menu in town boasted fresh Capt. Franks Tuna. It was at this time, he decided to stay, live and work here in Apalachicola, and was lucky enough to run into the love of his life sitting on the porch of The Gibson Inn. He noticed a gal sitting there who was cutting up fruit and cheese to help with Happy Hour. He liked her knife skills and the rest was history... Their eyes met and it turned into the longest date of Peggy Foleys live. They became inseparable, two peas in a pod, right up until his last breath. In 2007, when the Suzie Sea ran aground on the north side of Dog Island while investigating the possible sponge business, Frank was instrumental with the salvage of that boat. The number of boats Frank saved was too many to count. He was the rst one there to help with a wetsuit in January to nding the right part to make things work. The working waterman has a tough enough life; Frank found joy in helping his brother shermen wherever possible. When the BP oil was frightening close, he contacted his good friend Larry Simms, head of Maryland Watermens Association. Frank and Larry thought it was a good idea to barge up Apalachicola oysters for safekeeping until the mess was cleaned up. But too much red tape these days for that good idea made sure it never materialized. He was involved in the Gulf BP oil spill cleanup, which cut into his soul. His passion was to do whatever he could to help. Years back when there was a blight, they brought Apalachicola oysters to replenish the Chesapeake Bay. He was an advocate for Save the Bay Foundation for the Chesapeake Bay. As a young man, Frank also honed his skills in carpentry, which came in handy along the way. Many will remember that he became a pretty good golfer, could throw an atlatl with ease, and was very proud of his poolshooting skills. Collecting Indian relics and being outdoors with nature were his passions. He loved animals and rescued many. Frank was an intelligent guy with a great sense of humor. He was always the light in any gathering, and will be greatly missed. Frank was preceded in death by his brother, Kevin, and stepfather, Frank. He is survived by his mother, Betty Lou Taylor; his life partner and caregiver, Peggy Foley; his sisters, Mellissa (Jeff) Finney, Kristi (Miles) Parsons and Sherry Craner; and a brother, Gerald Rodney. Frank was the proud father of three children, Taylor Rodney, Chelsea (Jon) Smith and Nick Rodney. He was looking forward to welcoming his rst grandchild into the world this month. A Celebration of Life was held Saturday afternoon, Oct. 12, in the Galena Funeral Home of Stephen L. Schaech, Galena. In lieu of owers, a donation in Franks name to your local humane society would be appreciated. He also leaves behind his two devoted fourlegged rescued companions Little Man and Scooter. They will miss him dearly as well. He will surely be remembered by anyone who came across his path. We would like to have a remembrance for Frank and say our nal goodbyes on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 1 p.m. at Battery Park. After, well proceed to the boats for his last shing trip. Anyone with their own boat who would like to join in the procession out to the bay may feel free to join us. Lets make this a special sendoff for him and a joyous day to remember. Always in our hearts.EEllwood FFranklin RRodney EllELL WOOD F FRaANKlLIN R RODNEY ObituariesSee ya at lunch, today! Sarge and Stacey will have a good meal prepared for us.

On Saturday, Journeys SGI and Island Fit Stand Up Paddleboard Fitness expanded the event as the rst Paddle at the Park. Paddle at the Park was a satellite event for World Paddle for the Planet, supporting ecoconciousness and a healthier and happier environment. Proceeds of the event will be donated to the cause of educating and raising environmental awareness. More than 100 people visited Boy Scout Regatta Park to try out kayaks and stand up paddleboards (SUP). Samantha Fortunas, owner of Island Fit, led classes and gave demonstrations of SUP yoga throughout the day. The hosts provided drinks, hot dogs and later barbeque to participants. The highlight of the day was youth and adult races. Winners in the youth category on SUP were Jared Jake, rst place; Parker Anderson, second; and Jevon Jake, third. This was Jevons rst time paddling. Winners in the youth kayak category were Perry Stone, rst; Nash Ramsdell, second and Maya Itzkovitz, third. Adults did a two-mile paddle.

In the womens division, Sam Fortunas was rst; Katie Derrick second and Mandy Andrews was third. By LOIS SWOBODA Back in the paddle againSpecial to the TimesNew birding sites will boost tourism in rural counties Florida is the No. 1 wildlife-viewing destination in the United States for good reason. The Sunshine State has hundreds of top-notch birding and wildlife-viewing sites, including worldfamous locations such as Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Everglades National Park and Honeymoon Island State Park. For those willing to venture off the beaten track, however, exceptional wildlifeviewing experiences await in Floridas less-traveled rural counties. Would it surprise you to know that nearly half of Floridas counties are of cially designated as rural? Not surprisingly, all have great wildlife viewing opportunities. However, rural counties have historically been underrepresented on the Trail. In fall 2011 Trail staff launched an outreach initiative to boost the birding sites in rural areas. They visited and evaluated each nominated site in spring and summer 2012. All nominations and staff reviews are also shared with a steering committee to ensure that each site meets the criteria for inclusion on the Trail. As a result, 23 sites in 15 counties were formally accepted as part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail in 2013. These sites are owned and managed by many state and local government agencies, as well as private landowners. Three counties Calhoun, De Soto, and Union are included for the rst time, and all but three of Floridas counties now have at least one GFBWT destination.

Each year a city is selected based on criteria that include, but are not limited to, boat ramp access, water accessible accommodations, dockside dining, boating locations/activities and marina availability. This years award was presented to Sheila Hauser of Southern Breeze Media and Suzanne Zimmerman, executive director of the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce, on Sept. 28. Rusty Gardner, president of Florida By Water, said he chose the community because it is truly a boaters paradise. No big chains in this small town; here you will nd only local accommodations, all reasonably priced, he said. Some of Floridas best seafood and water access to such popular boating destinations as Dog Island, St. George Island and the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Carrabelle River. Gardner said the quaint shing village also offers plenty to do when youre not on the water, boasting of three museums where colorful stories come to life as volunteers guide you through the history of World War II, the history of Carrabelle or the Crooked River Lighthouse. These people are friendly. The town is about boating and shing, said Gardner. Nothing else seems to matter, and thats why its the perfect getaway for boaters. Hauser said Carrabelle is honored to be the Boaters Best Getaway destination in Florida. The tourism industry is a huge part of our economy and our visitors love to go boating and shing in our local waters, she said.

Residents of St. James Bay hired an engineer to do a traf c study because of the continuing complaints about speeders on the road. The study found the average speed on the residential street is 70 mph. The engineer recommended the installation of four speed humps, which are low-pro le traf c calming devices, in speci c areas in the St. James Bay Golf Course area. The sites identi ed in the study are appropriate, according to county consultant Clay Smallwood, from Preble-Rish Engineers. Residents of St. James Bay are willing to pay for half the cost of installation if the county will pay for the other half. The total estimated cost for installation, including signage, is $11,149, so each share will be approximately $5,600. Oyster farming workshop on Nov. 15The University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences in cooperation with the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has tentatively scheduled a second workshop on oyster farming on Nov. 15 at the Florida State University Coastal Marine Lab at Turkey Point. Dr. John Supan, sea grant oyster specialist, is scheduled to be the featured speaker. It was a tight race, with the team sponsored by Dodd Title coming in one stroke ahead of the second place contender in the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerces 10th annual golf tournament last week. At 55 points, the team of Brett Johnson, captain Robbie Johnson, Stacy Kirvin and Tyler Poloronis topped the nine teams on a gorgeous afternoon Oct. 10 at St. James Bay Golf Resort. The second place team, captained by Zach Childs, included Matt Terry, Steve Newman and Zach Ferrell. Third place, with 59 strokes, were Tim Butler, Travis Sheridan, Johnny Sheridan and Levi Millender. Each member of the winning quartet took home $100 gift certi cates from the St. James Bay pro shop. The second-place winners each walked with $75 worth and third place earned $50 per player. Poloronis was closest to the pin on No. 2, and St. James Bay golf pro Rob Burlison was closest No. 11. Nola Tolbert, manager of the Crooked River Grill, had the longest drive in the womens division, and Terry had the longest drive for men. All four were awarded free rounds of golf, but Tolbert and Burlison donated theirs back to the event. Chamber Director Anita Grove said the tourney earned more than $2,200. By LOIS SWOBODAThe Franklin County High School varsity girls golf team continued to build on an outstanding rst season last week as they took fourth place out of 10 teams in the Big Bend Invitational. The Lady Seahawks nished one stroke better than fth-place Leon at the invitational, held at Killearn Country Club on Oct. 8. The order of nish was winner Chiles; runner-up John Paul II; and third place Maclay. Behind Franklin County were 5) Leon; 6) Florida High; 7) Wakulla; 8) Lincoln; 9) Godby and 10) Rickards It was a good test, and playing an 18-hole match should help prepare us for our district tournament next week, head coach Scott Collins said. On Oct. 10, Franklin County defeated Wakulla and Branford in their nal home match of the season. We didnt play our best this week, but the girls keep nding ways to win Collins said. The team ended the regular season with 17 wins and six losses. On Tuesday, Oct. 15, the Lady Seahawks traveled to Tallahassee to play at Hilamin Golf Course against district foes John Paul, Maclay, Florida High, Branford and Aucilla to try and extend their season by qualifying for the regional tournament a week later in Pensacola. We have a tough district, but our girls are focused and are putting in extra time to try and make the playoffs Collins said.

Michael will be signing all his books, including his new ones at the No Name Cafe and bookshop in Port St. Joe on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. For more information call 850-229-9277. I never imagined Id write a sequel to Double Exposure, Lister said. Actually, I was pretty sure I wouldnt. In fact, it was far more likely that Stephen King would write a sequel to The Shining some 36 years after the original book was rst released. Books like Double Exposure dont get sequels. Or so I thought. But here I am witnessing the release of Separation Anxiety, the spiritual sequel to Double Exposure some four years after its initial release. In this follow-up to Double Exposure, Lister once again takes readers down the rural routes and river swamps of wild North Florida. Sixteen-year-old Shelby Emma Summers has disappeared on a late-August day from her famous artist moms lodge on the banks of the Apalachicola River, just outside the small town of Tupelo. Out in the Gulf, a savage hurricane projected to make landfall in the Panhandle intensies and expands. Has Shelby been abducted or is she merely skipping school? Is she with her boyfriend, Julian, and if she is, does that make her more or less safe? A fast-paced twisting and turning mystery, a harrowing hurricanic adventure. Told in prose that is poetic, evocative, and muscular, Separation Anxiety is a timeless, resonate literary thriller of heartbreak and heroism. Separation Anxiety is a far more complex novel than Double Exposure, Lister said. It has far more characters, far more plot, and is a lot larger, but the two books share a lot in common. They denitely have the same DNA. Separation Anxiety also includes the appearance of Sam Michaels and Daniel Davis from another popular thriller of Listers, Burnt Offerings. In a way, its a sequel to Burnt Offerings too, Lister said. But more in a literal than spiritual sense. In fact, as I think about it, Separation Anxiety is truly a marriage of Double Exposure and Burnt Offerings. Its funny, but I havent really thought of it that way until this moment, but that is exactly what it is. The release of Separation Anxiety includes a new special edition release of Double Exposure with a new cover, lots of photographs, and an introduction and signature by bestselling author Michael Connelly, who has championed the book since he rst sat down and read it cover to cover without getting up four years ago. Connelly commented that Double Exposure is absolutely riveting! Elegiac prose, insightful characterization and a wonderfully ingenious plot.

RealEstatePicks BestValues onthe ForgottenCoast Special to the TimesOn Saturday, Nov. 9 at 3 p.m. the West Gadsden Historical Society (WGHS) will celebrate the grand opening of the recently restored historic Greensboro Depot beside the Apalachicola Northern Railroad (AN RR) at 115 Dufe Avenue, Greensboro. At the same time, the newly constructed adjacent classroom building, named the Patricia Fletcher Vice Meeting Facility, will be dedicated in her memory. Trish was a co-founder as well as vice-president of WGHS and was an ardent, vocal supporter. She can never be replaced and will always be missed by the society. The Greensboro Depot was built in 1907 (year of the rst operation of the AN RR) and is the only remaining original depot on the line which runs from River Junction (Chattahoochee) in Gadsden County to Port St. Joe in Gulf County. About 40 years ago, the depot was moved from its original location between the main track and the side track to a nearby lot. It was then remodeled by Nelson Clark and used as his barber shop as well as a thrift shop operated by area Methodist churches. Several years ago Progress Energy built a transmission line through this area of Gadsden County and many miles of the line follow the AN RR right-of-way. The old depot building site was in the direct path of the transmission line through Greensboro. WGHS saw the need to advocate for the saving of this piece of history. Following many discussions between WGHS, Progress Energy, and St. Joe Land Company, a nearby lot was donated by St. Joe, and Progress Energy contributed a grant defraying the cost of relocation of the depot. The depot is once again on a lot adjacent to the tracks. The society is most appreciative of this grant and the property on which to relocate the depot building. Without the cooperation of these two corporations working with WGHS, this saving of a piece of Floridas history would not have been possible. West Gadsden Historical Society was fortunate to receive a grant through the U.S. Department of Transportation by which it was able to restore the depot and construct an adjoining classroom building. Concrete Services, Inc. of Quincy did a wonderful job with this project. Now the work begins furnishing the depot in order for it to become a rst-class railroad museum. The museum will not be only for items pertaining to the Apalachicola Northern Railroad, but will include any and all railroad items. The Society encourages anyone with copies of old AN RR or any train and depot photos, documents, newspaper clippings, or other artifacts to contact us about sharing these important pieces of railroad history. Any items you might have that you wish to donate or loan to this museum will be greatly appreciated. Please be sure to remind all your relatives, friends, and neighbors of this event.

Drawer D, Greensboro, FL 32330 for further information.By TEVIsS PAGESpecial to the Times Last week was lled with so many breathtaking memories that will never be replaced. Monday was blast from the past, Tuesday was twin day, Wednesday was wacky costume day, Thursday was color wars, and Friday was spirit day. Yearbook took pictures of all the student body throughout the week. The homecoming edition of the 2013-14 football program is now available; if interested contact Jennifer Edwards at Franklin County High School. The students got really involved this year, with neon colors, wacky glasses and funky hairstyles. The winners should be announced for the silly Olympics and color wars promptly while the oat winners were, of course, the seniors. With homecoming over, the high school now has to wait anxiously for the 50th annual Florida Seafood Festival, which is only two weeks away. We will be dismissed early on Nov. 1 and the parade will be held Saturday Nov. 2. As always in high school, one event is nally over and the next cant arrive soon enough.
