This is not because he skateboards every day; numerous young people get on their boards daily. His not being typical certainly is in part due to the numerous and varied tattoos that extend south from just below where his chin meets his ears, down his torso and to the furthest reaches of all four limbs. It is not every day you see someone with a chubby, scantily clad woman with a bag on her head gracing his right calf, and the Gothic letter “D” for Detroit on the left shin. Also, that he is unusual is not entirely because he depends on the benevolence of strangers for his daily bread and nightly bed. That same can be said of lots of others who, unlike Zygmontowicz’s voluntary circumstances, life has emptied their pockets and kicked them to the curb. His distinction does not alone stem from the charity that he bestows, in turn, on others. A large number of people with a large number of websites enable visitors to click on a link and donate to a cause, as does, the website used by Zygmontowicz (pronounced zig-mon-toe-vich) to document his scoot from town to town. What makes him most unusual is that Zygmontowicz is circumnavigating the Atlantic coastline, and eventually the entire country, on a skateboard. Plus those other things enumerated above are also true. “May 15 was when I pushed off,” said the tall, thickly bearded young man. “I was going to go to the top of Maine but the weather was still a little chilly. 2 caught smuggling drugs into prison By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In an incident that exposed the gritty underbelly of life in a state penitentiary, two women were arrested earlier this month, charged with trying to smuggle in drugs and tobacco. An investigation by Florida Department of Correction Senior Inspector J. Newton Livingston, with the inspector general’s contraband interdiction unit, led to the Jan. 11 arrest, in separate incidents, of Pamela A. Biggs, 50, New Smyrna Beach, and Sharon K. Kinser, 73, Nashville, Ga. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com After 20 years of research, University of South Florida archaeologist Dr. Nancy White has published a report on the history of the Pierce Mounds, on the western edge of Apalachicola, that shows the area was inhabited for more than 2000 years before the arrival of European explorers. White, a professor in the university’s department of anthropology, has helped illuminate a world few imagined once existed in the heart of Franklin County. For 2,000 years, an Indian village nestled on the banks of Turtle Harbor Swamp west of Apalachicola was a center of culture commerce and religion. White’s newly published report offers insight into Franklin County’s role in the ancient world. The mounds were named for Alton Pierce, an early owner of the site. Much of the site is now on private property and inaccessible to the public. Once upon a time, 13 mounds, including a sizeable temple mound and a shell midden more than a mile long, shared with a bustling village the area around what is now Magnolia Cemetery.

COURTESY OF NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN, SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION By LOIS SWOBODA and DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com In light of the ongoing controversy surrounding the Air Force’s plans to use Tate’s Hell State Forest to conduct military exercises, helicopters circling overhead Monday have rufed the feathers of Carrabelle residents. Carrabelle Beach resident Lesly Cox said based on the visible lights, there were at least two helicopters ying at treetop level for about an hour adjacent to her home beginning at 6:30 p.m. Monday. She said the aircraft were extremely loud and caused signi cant vibration. Representatives at Carrabelle City Hall said they received several complaint calls, both in the area of Carrabelle Beach. The exercises, which are handled through an arrangement between a private sector company and the Special Operations Command, both in Tampa, are not related to Gulf Regional Airspace Strategic Planning (GRASI), a pending Air Force initiative with the state to use Tate’s Hell for regular military exercise. “None of these things are associated with GRASI at all,” said Mike Spaits, a spokesman with Eglin Air Force Base’s Environmental Public Affairs of ce. “The GRASI study is still underway. No actions that we are looking at from GRASI are ongoing.” The exercises are conducted by special operations units, which could be the 1st Special Operations Wing at Hurlburt Field, one of three Air Force active duty Special Operations wings. The operations, which have been conducted in parts of Franklin off and on for the past half-dozen years, are arranged by the Tampa rm of Visual Awareness Technologies and Consulting Inc.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, January 30, 2014 The people who lived there were prosperous and powerful, in uencing trade traf c to the north along Apalachicola River and to the east and west along the Gulf Coast. They were spared the hard work of farming by an abundance of seafood and game as well as wild fruit and nuts. There is evidence they imported cornmeal to broaden their diet. Skilled potters who produced both fanciful and utilitarian creations, they buried their dead with precious objects including silver, copper and pearls. The settlement was founded around 500 B.C. Around the same time the Scandinavian Iron Age began, the Chinese developed the handheld trigger crossbow, and burnt brick and donkey-powered grain mills were used for the rst time in Greece. World population had reached 100 million, 15 million of whom lived in the Western Hemisphere. “The (Pierce Mounds people) hauled soil in baskets or sacks or dragged it on hides or cloths to pile it up and build mounds,” White wrote. “They made both beautiful and plain pots, paints, points, pipes, musical instruments, and other artifacts, and used many in special ceremonies that also involved burnt offerings to accompany burial of their dead. “Wolves, panthers, other cats, but maybe even grub worms too were among the animals they considered important for more than just food. They hunted, shed, gathered nuts, chopped down and burned trees, made canoes, played chunkey and other games,” she wrote. At the time these rst mounds were built, Greek engineers invented the catapult and the Acropolis was planned. Socrates lived and was executed for corrupting the youth of Athens. London was a collection of thatched huts boasting a wooden pier and surrounded by a mud wall. White writes that the settlement at Turtle Harbor persisted until shortly before “the European invasion of Florida” in the 16th century. Why the Pierce Mound people left is unclear. Treasures taken from the site are in museum collections as far away as London, along with unpublished records and drawings from early excavations. Much of White’s research on Apalachicola’s prehistory took place in libraries. “This shows the value of the immensely dif cult and complex labor of digging into unpublished eld notes and maps, museum accession data, courthouse records, and other original sources,” White wrote. “Today many think research is something done online. But there is a wealth of unpublished, dusty old paper out there with information that can greatly change or help interpretation.” Artifacts at the British Museum were probably purchased, a common practice during the 19th century. The museum’s collection includes a clay pipe and four stone artifacts, obtained in 1869, from a dig at “Turtle Harbor near Apalachicola” and stone and shell tools and pottery, acquired in 1875, are “from mounds near Appalachicola.” Pottery from Pierce Mounds is showcased at the Smithsonian. AN ANCIENT TOURIST ATTRACTION Just as ancient cities today hold a charm and fascination, White believes that over time, the attraction of the Pierce Mounds grew. Certainly, it was a center of commerce and drew visitors from far away, but it also might have been a place for religious pilgrimages, an ancient tourist attraction. “The earlier mounds may have become sacred places for later people to come to pray, worship ancestors known or thought to have been (buried) there, or just feel a sense of the spiritual beyond everyday life, or a sense of territory and patriotism,” White wrote. European settlers in Apalachicola collected many artifacts, a practice that continued well into the 20th century. Indeed, on the east end of the cemetery, it appears the remains of a mound or midden is being bulldozed for ll, White wrote. In 1888, H.L. Grady of Apalachicola collected artifacts that his heirs apparently donated to what would become the Florida Museum of Natural History. C.B Moore, a well heeled and colorful archaeologist, carried out the rst organized excavation at Pierce Mounds. He published a spectacular account of the dig in 1902. Moore excavated many Native American sites in the Southeast, around the turn of the 19th century, often traveling to them in his steamboat the “Gopher” accompanied by a lifelong male companion who was his personal physician. By the time Moore visited the site around 1898, the temple mound had been mined for ll. He described 99 burials from Mound A, including skeletons, weapons, jewelry and pottery. In the 1940s, Gordon Willey, whose work laid the foundation for New World archaeology, visited the Pierce Mounds and performed additional excavations. By the 1990s, Willey was retired but continued to write. Among his works was a mystery novel, “Selena,” a story in which an elderly archaeologist becomes embroiled in sexual antics and murder in a ctitious Panhandle town. White said the Pierce Mounds are featured in the story as the “Bull Mounds.” William Sears, another archaeologist, excavated here in the 1950s, followed by Dan Penton, who visited in 1972 and again in 1996. White said Penton told her the Muscogee Indian nation still considers the Pierce site sacred, and tobacco offerings are made there. In 1975, architect Willoughby Marshall hired Robert S. Carr to examine historic sites for “Apalachicola: Economic Development through Historic Preservation.” Carr quotes from a manuscript by local memoirist, Dwight Marshall, who said the railroad construction cut through “some of the Indian mounds near the cemetery. They dug up skeletons of Indians that were a foot taller than the average man of today and also other items of pottery. The Smithsonian Institute sent some men here on the Steamer Gopher...” In reality, Moore was sponsored by the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia so it’s unclear how much of Marshall’s account is accurate. COOL SPRINGS MOUND MISSING In 1994, the U.S. Department of State tried and failed to buy part of the Pierce site, both for historical preservation and to conserve surrounding wetlands. Shortly after, a team from the Florida Department of Historical Resources’ Bureau of Archaeological Research visited the Pierce site. White and her students inspected the artifacts DHR recovered and her work on the mounds began. She has located the sites of all but one of the 13 mounds, named Cool Springs Mound, a 7.5foot-high and 90-feet-indiameter mound located as of 1902 on the western outskirts of Apalachicola. Now, it is probably in the neighborhood just east of Magnolia Cemetery. What will happen to the Pierce Mounds is unclear. In 1974, Pierce Mounds was added to the National Register of Historic Places, but the designation provides no protection. “The beauty and monumental nature of the Pierce mounds complex remains impressive today, even with the damage to so much of the site,” White wrote. “It is crucial that Pierce be preserved as much as possible, for so many reasons, from heritage conservation to ecological issues to scienti c research potential.” Apalachicola resident George Mahr, who owns the undeveloped remains of the Pierce site, invited White to work there and supported much of her research. He hopes either to develop the land preserving the archaeological site or to sell the land for conservation purposes. He has fenced the site in an effort to preserve it but said the problem of trespassers in the area is a constant challenge. White asked to remind everyone these mounds are a burial site and it is illegal to disturb, possess or sell human remains in Florida. If the remains are from someone who has been dead for more than 75 years, activities at the site of a suspected grave may not resume until the state archaeologist has been noti ed of the unmarked burial.

Local The Times | A3 Thursday, January 30, 2014 Instead, he left from the Maine town of Brunswick, formerly home to saw mills and shipbuilding and where Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” while her husband was a professor at Bowdoin College, a historical detail which is not related in any way to Zygmontowicz’s current adventure, which passed through Frank lin County Friday and Saturday. The 28-year-old free wheeling diarist is on the ninth volume recording his quest’ s journals, the earli er eight mailed back home to East Lansing, Michigan once each was completed. “I write everything down,” he said. Friday night he stayed at the Old Carrabelle Hotel, having persuaded Kathy and Skip Frink to give him accommodations gratis. “Five strawberries, a mandarin orange and two pieces of bacon,” he ate that morning, a couple hours before he hit the high hump of the bridge and rolled into Apalachicola downtown. There is no hard luck to this man’s story, even though he must pull out the ultralight sleeping bag from his backpack and rest his head on a mossy rock from time to time. “I’m doing this all on my own,” he said. “I have to nd my food, everything.” Zygmontowicz encour ages people to visit his website and donate to can Brigitte Schroeder, who treated him to a stay at the Bryant House on Satur day, asked to consider dia betes, or heart disease, as bad a killer as cancer, as his charity. While one can only spec ulate what unusual forces drive someone to skate board through life in such a way, the perpetrator of this distinction said he was not driven by a cause. “Maine to Key West was the original trip. Now it’s blossomed into more than I ever expected. I’m meet ing all walks of life. They have less than I do. I look at them all the same,” he said. “I haven’t met one a**h*l* yet on this trip.” Probably fearing for his life, Zygmontowicz does not travel on interstate high ways, but anywhere else, a road is a road is a road. And should a cop stop to discuss the rules of the road, “I give him a business card and ask him for lunch money,” he said brightly. “More people stop to ask me if I need a ride or if I need help,” has been Zygmontowicz’s experience. He’s got all the ne cessities with him in the backpack, a Sawyer water treatment system, and a smartphone with enough charged batteries not to be an issue until maybe the long stretches of west Tex as where it will be just him and the “Bustin Brooklyn” long board he leaned care fully, openly against a new ly painted wall at Caf Con Leche. He’ll Google his route in advance, examining for railroad tracks, stop lights or other impediments, and fancy bed-and-breakfasts he can kick in if the inn keepers are kind. “I scout it out on my phone. I’ll know if I’m about to skateboard through a giant litter box. “When I rst started I got a little carried away,” he said, now paring down his daily grind by half to about 40-miles.”I’m trying to stop as many times as possible.” He’s on a long board now, the earlier ones, the shorter, standard models, all victims of rough and wet terrain “I’ve gone through quite a few boards. This is only the second long board I ever road,” he said. “There’s more give in the knee. The standard skate board is a lot shorter.” Zygmontowicz’s place ment of his skateboard in plain view led to interest in the young man by other Caf Con Leche patrons. To experience their giveand-take is to understand the soul behind the quest. For June Dosik, it was the young man’s Polish ancestry, reminiscent of her own background, and for a young couple, also from Michigan, it was talk of the scenic peaks of Colo rado and Idaho that caught their attention. A husband and wife one table over overheard, and shared their ties to Kalamazoo, while a pair of graying la dies, drinking coffee at a nearby table, insisted on a photo with Zygmontow icz they could text to their grandchildren. “I try to be kindhearted, open-minded, nonjudg mental and very genuine,” he said. “I’m honest and grateful for what I have. That’s better than any job anyone can ever give me in the entire world. “This is my job,” he said. “It’s tough. We are only go ing around this ride once in life and while you’re sitting there, I’m going to lay the hammer down.” Zygmontowicz plans to hit California by summer, and then “Vancouver by the fall, that’s the game plan.” His ance has plans to meet him out West this summer. After some coffee and a homemade mufn, he readies himself for the next leg, on to Port St. Joe and a pre-arranged stay at the Turtle Inn. His hands, tattooed with the words Travel and Family, make sure all his belongings are carefully packed away. As he works, he takes a minute to hand out cards and remind everyone they can follow him on his website, or Instagram or Facebook. He also demonstrates the versatility of the two tiers of letters tattooed across his ngers, and with a little sleight of hand, shows how they can make up the words “F-A-I-L” and “T-R-A-I-L” AND “R-A-V-E” and several others. And then he’s off. NOTICE It is that time again to le for your 2014 Property T ax Exemptions.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times O PINION Thursday, January 30, 2014 A Section Page 4 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com Franklin County’s unemployment rate dropped a bit last month, as the workforce continues to shrink during the offseason. According to preliminary numbers released Friday by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the county’s jobless rate for December stood at 5.3 percent, a decline of 0.1 percent, from 5.4 percent in November. The unemployment rolls shed 10 people last month, dropping from 279 to 269 people in search of work. This decrease in unemployment occurred as the workforce shrank by 129 people, from 5,167 to 5,038. The current work force has 214 fewer workers than one year ago, when it comprised 5,252 workers and the jobless rate was sharply higher, at 6.6 percent. Franklin County’s December jobless picture dropped it from its longstanding position as one of the 10 best counties in the state for joblessness. It was tied in December with Clay County for 17th best, behind Wakulla, Holmes and Nassau all tied for 14th, and Sumter, Santa Rosa, Leon, Seminole and Bradford, all tied for ninth. Franklin also was worse for unemployment than Broward, in eighth place; Jefferson seventh; Jackson sixth; Alachua and St. Johns tied for fourth; Okaloosa third; Walton second; and Monroe rst. Many of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates have relatively high proportions of government employment. Franklin had the lowest unemployment in the Gulf Coast Workforce Region, which also includes Bay and Gulf counties, at 6.3 and 6.4 percent, respectively. The region’s overall rate was 6.3 percent in December, 2.2 percentage points lower than the region’s year ago rate and 0.4 of a percentage point above the state rate of 5.9 percent. Out of a labor force of 94,159, there were 5,885 unemployed Gulf Coast residents. “Hiring is strong for this time of year, and we expect it to stay that way until the tourism season kicks off this spring,” said Kim Bodine, executive director for Gulf Coast Workforce Board. “In fact, the Workforce Center will host several job fairs and hiring events throughout February to assist local employers ll open positions.” Upcoming job fairs include a Feb. 3 General Dynamics Job Fair at the Workforce Center; hiring for customer service representatives’ at the Feb. 7 Bay County Job Fair at Haney Technical Center; and a Feb. 15 Job Fair at Pier Park. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the Panama City-Lynn HavenPanama City Beach metro area (Bay County) had 69,400 nonagricultural jobs in the area, down 600 jobs over the year. The Gulf Coast Workforce Board continues to question the accuracy of the job loss estimates. “We believe these numbers will change and show positive increases in employment once the state completes the benchmarking process which adjusts numbers based on actual tax records,” Bodine said. Four of 10 industries gained jobs over the year and three industries lost jobs over the year. Mining, logging and construction (+200 jobs) gained the most jobs, followed by manufacturing, professional and business services, and education and health services (+100 jobs each). The industries losing jobs were government (600 jobs); leisure and hospitality (-300 jobs); and trade, transportation, and utilities (-200 jobs). Information, nancial activities, and other services remained unchanged over the year. CEO: Weems East not moving Ray Brownsworth, CEO of Weems Memorial Hospital, this week issued an apology to the citizens of Franklin County regarding incorrect information that was contained in a recent letter. Brownsworth’s letter is as follows: “Recently, you may have received a letter stating that Weems Medical Center East is moving to a new location. This is not true and was sent accidently by our staff selecting the wrong form to use. The noti cation was only a template in the system and was not about a real move by Weems or any other clinic. We are making the necessary changes to make sure that such an action does not happen again. Please accept my apologies for this error. “I want you to know that we are proud of our providers, staff and the services provided at both Weems East and Weems West. The clinics will continue to be at their current locations as they provide services to the residents of Franklin County. We continue to move forward in a number of areas as we seek to improve both your experience at the clinic and the quality of care you receive.” Brownsworth continued on to note that the days of service at the clinics are as follows: Weems Medical Center East is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. On Monday, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the care is provided by Dana Whaley, ARNP; and on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, by Dr. Eugene Charbonneau. Weems Medical Center West is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. On Tuesdays and Wednesday, Charbonneau provides care, and on Thursday and Friday Whaley serves as provider. “Again, we apologize for any confusion and we look forward to continuing to serve you at both Weems Medical Center East and West in their current locations. Should you have additional questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at 653-8853,” Brownsworth wrote. Address infrastructure needs, not wants A Jan. 23 news brief in The Times, headlined “Commissioners ask legislators for funding,” listed projects for which our county commissioners are seeking funding in the 2014 state budget. The majority of the proposed projects are in regards to improvements and repairs of existing waterways and drainage systems. Hopefully the legislature will allot us the necessary monies to fully address these issues. The notable exception to these improvement/repair requests is Cheryl Sanders’ request for $600,000 to purchase Island View and turn it into a county park. Parks are nice, but ood control and proper drainage are necessities. With only so much money to go around, we need to spend it where it will do the most good. Purchase of the Island View would create future expenses in continuing park upkeep. There are currently two shing dock/piers at the Island View site. Paying for their repair when the next Dennis comes through should be entered into the equation. Their mere existence would create a liability for the county. Also, if the county purchases Island View, it would lose the thousands of dollars in the tax revenues it currently receives on this property. Franklin County already has a number of nice parks including Carrabelle Beach, which is not far from the Island View site. We are also surrounded by national and state forests, which lend easy access to sites for leisure time activities. Let’s request funds for projects that are truly needed instead of seeking funding for a project which would create additional liability and expense and also reduce the county’s revenues. Regards, S. Railey Q. Can you provide some information on foreclosure cases being filed? A. The number of foreclosure cases filed in Franklin County is on a decline. Foreclosure filings peaked in 2009 with an all-time high of 414 filings. In 2010, the records in this office reflect that 191 foreclosures were filed in Circuit Court. In 2011, that number increased slightly to 194 cases. According to a report just generated, there were 178 foreclosures filed in 2012, and then in calendar year 2013, our numbers continued to decrease, with 139 cases being filed. In 2013, there were seven commercial foreclosure actions filed, as compared to 18 filed in 2012. In 2013, there were 50 homestead residential foreclosure actions filed, as compared to 65 filed in 2012. In 2013, there were 82 non-homestead residential foreclosure actions filed, as compared to 95 filed in 2012. According to news reports, Florida carries a quarter of the nation’s foreclosure inventory, which is the biggest share of any state. When I assumed office in 2005, there were only 21 foreclosure cases filed that year, so you can imagine the impact of the workload going from such a small number of cases to the numbers we’ve filed and successfully dealt with since then. Foreclosures have also impacted the courts, and they have made great efforts to resolve the backlogged cases. In 2013, my office conducted an estimated 160 sales on foreclosed properties. Thirty sales were scheduled just during this month of January 2014. There are events occurring causing sales to be cancelled which are beyond the control of the Clerk’s office. You can view the sales scheduled by going to my website,, selecting “Foreclosure Sales” under Quick Links, and then selecting “Click Here to View Foreclosure Sales.” There is also general information about foreclosures that can be accessed. If you have any questions or comments about this column, please send them to Marcia Johnson, Clerk of the Court, 33 Market St., Suite 203, Apalachicola, FL 32320, or email Visit the clerk’s website at www. In the last year, a Fabulous Food Cooking School series has been offered with great success in Leon, Liberty and Wakulla counties through the cooperation of the county extension faculty. The extension agents are nishing their second series and would like to bring Franklin County residents “Growing Winter Salads” from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, at the Franklin County Extension Of ce, 66 Fourth St., Apalachicola. Salads are such a tasty way to incorporate fruits and vegetables into the diet. It is easy to get burned out on the same salad recipes, and we would like to offer some fresh ideas. The class will be hosted by Franklin County extension staff while Trevor Hylton, FAMU Wakulla/Leon, and Monica Brinkley, UF/IFAS Liberty County Extension faculty will be the speakers. Trevor will share how to grow lettuces and many of the cool weather vegetables that make tasty salads. Monica will have your hands busy making salads for tasting. To cover the expense of the class, a $15 fee will be charged. If the fee prohibits your attendance, just indicate that when you preregister, and your fee will be waived. Pre-registration is necessary and can be done by called 653-9337 or by emailing me at sswenson@ u .edu. Workshops like this are a way to utilize the UF/IFAS Franklin County Extension Of ce faculty. Come and learn what we bring to your county and the opportunities for ongoing education through our services. We hope to have a great turnout for this event to assist us in determining future programming for Franklin County citizens. Shelley Swenson, a family and consumer sciences extension agent in Wakulla County, is the interim county extension director for Franklin County.

Authorities reported in their probable cause afda vits that they had advance knowledge of the schemes after listening to “lawfully reported phone calls” of in mates at Franklin Correc tional Institution. Kinser is alleged to have tried to smuggle in a plastic bag containing more than 105 grams of tobacco and 15 Lortab pills, which contain the narcotic hydrocodone. Because the pills, which weighed almost 11 grams, were in excess of the fourgram threshold for drug trafcking, Kinser was charged with trafcking in a controlled substance; sale or possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver; and introduction of contraband into a state prison. Biggs, who authorities said tried to smuggle in more than 29 grams of “synthetic cannabinoids wrapped with plastic and black tape,” was charged with introduction of contraband into a state prison. Livingston wrote that phone conversations be tween Biggs and FCI in mate Edwin Plummer, 49, led the inspector to believe she “was going to introduce contraband at Plummer’s request on Jan. 11.” How authorities became aware Kinser planned to smuggle in contraband to inmate Harry Page, 33, is not detailed in the report. It says Kinser, as was the case with Biggs, volun tarily removed the contents from her groin area when confronted and questioned by authorities, in the pres ence of a female corrections ofcer. In addition to a plastic bag lled with tobacco and the pills, Kinser was trans porting a feminine napkin that contained two bundles of tobacco, weighing almost 129 grams. Kinser told authorities she was introducing the items at Page’s request and intended to give them to him. She “further admitted she had introduced tobacco in the same manner several times and hydrocodone on one other occasion,” read the report. Kevin Steiger, the public defender, was appointed to represent Kinser, who was given a rst appearance be fore Wakulla County Judge Jill Walker. She paid a $4,500 surety bond and was re leased. Steiger also was ap pointed by Walker to repre sent Biggs, who paid a $1,500 bond and was released. Plummer, with a history of prison terms for robbery, burglary and theft in Volu sia County, is about three years away from completing a 19-year sentence for kid napping in the commission of a carjacking conducted without a deadly weapon, in Brevard County. Page, also with a history of prison time for thefts and burglaries in Pasco County, is a little more than a year shy of nishing a 15-year sentence for kidnapping and committing sexual battery with a weapon or force. Alan Pierce, the county director of administrative services, said an Osprey helicopter visited the Apalachicola air port late last fall and hovered 100 feet over a home belonging to Chris Varnes. It reportedly sucked the water from an above ground pool and caused pictures to fall from the walls of the structure. The county sent a letter of complaint to the military over the incident. Jeff Mason, VATC’s director of train ing coordination, said the focus is to conduct realistic military training on private properties, with the permission of local landowners, law enforcement and the county commissioners. This last go-round, which also in cluded larger exercises a week before, employed the former golf ball factory on River Road. “That facility is as realistic as we’re going to nd,” Mason said. “At a base, most facilities are special opera tions command. A unit will contact us and say we like to do realistic military training.” He said the rm has received a few complaints, mainly about helicopters from people living up the river. He said the military on Monday used Navy CH53 helicopters. “We try to keep times we do this earlier so it doesn’t disturb lo cals as much.” Mason said the rm pays to use prop erty, buys gas and lodging locally, and employs role players, usually off-duty deputies, to assist in the exercises. Spaits said the GRASI study should be complete by the fall, which is the earliest any GRASI exercises would be done. “We don’t know whether it’s going to be helicopters. It may not be. It may just be radar-type devices. It could be small teams of four to 11 guys maneuvering through the forest,” he said. “We’re still studying the potential impacts.” MILIMILI TARY from page A1 Special to the Times The Capital Chordsmen, a group of barbershop enthusiasts in Tallahassee dedicated to the preservation of barbershop singing in America, will be coming to Apalachicola, Eastpoint and St. George Island for Valentine’s Day to sing to sweethearts.

The year is quickly trekking along, and we are ready for the end. HAWK TALK Everyone talking about the weatherSS pecial to The Times On Jan. 16 and 17, Franklin County’s fourth graders planted 130 tree seedlings to commemorate Arbor Day. Arbor Day planting is part of a nationwide “Drive to Revive Arbor Day,” organized by Fourth Grade Foresters USA and sponsored and funded locally by the Franklin County Soil and Water Conservation District. Local Arbor Day organizer Lesley Cox said participating in Arbor Day gets the students outside planting trees at school and in their neighborhoods, preparing the next generation of environmental stewards. Appropriately, the tree seedlings were sabal palm (Sabal palmetto), rst designated in 1953 as Florida’s ofcial state tree and since 1970 a part of the state’s ofcial seal. Students designated as ofcial Fourth Grade Foresters at the Apalachicola Bay Charter School, First Baptist Christian School and Franklin County School were each given a seedling to take home and plant in their neighborhood. The rst Arbor Day, held April 10, 1872, in Nebraska, is attributed to Julius Sterling Morton, a member of the Nebraska State Board of Agriculture. In 1970, President Richard Nixon proclaimed the last Friday in April as National Arbor Day. Today, all 50 states celebrate Arbor Day, although the date might vary in keeping with local climate, planting recommendations. In Florida, it is celebrated on the third Friday in January. SS pecial to The Times The third annual St. George Island Tour of Homes is Feb. 8 and will once again offer visitors a view of island lifestyles by opening seven unique island residences to the public. Hours of the tour are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit the Lighthouse Gift Shop at the center of St. George Island to purchase tickets, or call 927-7745 to order tickets. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the tour. The tour homes provide a dynamic representation of the architecture, dcor, landscape and vistas on the island, from the gated St. George Plantation community on the West, to the sandy expanses of the East End. The rst of three Plantation homes is “Atlas Shrugged,” a Gulffront home designed by architect L. Ben Dooley and built by William Solburg. The home’s Spanish style includes a red-tiled roof, tabby exterior, massive mahogany doors and travertine stairs. Situated beside reedy canals, the second Plantation home, “Pelican Point,” offers spectacular views of the bay and bridge from its wraparound screened porch. The third home, which sits across from the Plantation Clubhouse, is the recently completed Meagh-Jones House with environmentally conscious rebar-reinforced insulated concrete form walls, and living and sleeping wings connected by two breezeways. The Plantation Clubhouse is also on the tour, and will be showcasing the paintings of Apalachicola artist Susan Richardson in an exhibit opening on tour weekend. In Gulf Beaches, the rst-platted area of the island, “Beach Baby and Grand Baby” is a concrete home built in 1956 and expanded and updated with stained glass, antiques, and vibrant regional art. The hidden backyard is a creative delight of topiary, roses, and herbs. “Grand Baby” is a former garage converted into a charming apartment. Two waterfront homes in Gulf Beaches are imaginative and transformative renovations of traditional St. George beach houses. “A New Phoenix” at one time suffered extensive hurricane damage and has been resurrected as a colorful family gathering place. It is recognizable by the distinctive semicircular glass entrance intercut with square window sashes. Just a few doors down is “Webb Feet,” a former one-story three bedroom/ two bath home recently updated by builder Joel Ulrich. The renovation features a Brazilian ipe deck and an interior characterized by pops of color in the artwork and eclectic dcor. Moving east, the Tour participant comes to “Ultimate Dream,” a recently completed home built by Gary Ulrich Construction Inc. with dramatic spaces and an ocean-organic color scheme of turquoise, aqua, and lime green. A blend of sleek modern and comfy rustic interior design characterizes this ultimate beach house. Tour tickets are available at the Lighthouse Gift Shop on St. George Island. To order tickets, call the Gift Shop at 927-7745. Tickets will be available on Tour Day at Lighthouse Park and at the St. George Plantation Clubhouse. Tour weekend will begin with a Friday evening KickOff event at the Jay Abbott Firehouse from 6-8 p.m. A highlight of the evening will be a presentation on the early development of St. George Island by James L. Hargrove, author of “The Oyster King.” Hargrove, author and retired University of Georgia professor, will share his ctionalized story of William Lee Popham, the rst man to attempt the development of St. George Island in the 1920s. The St. George Island Tour of Homes is sponsored by the St. George Lighthouse Association, a non-prot Florida corporation that preserves, maintains and promotes the Cape St. George Lighthouse. The Lighthouse was restored in 2008 after collapsing in 2005. SGLA also built a replica of the Lighthouse Keeper’s House, which is now a museum and gift shop. Proceeds from the Tour of Homes support the on-going maintenance of the Lighthouse, the Keeper’s House and Lighthouse Park. For more information, visit www.sgitourofhomes. com.

Micha el Whale y P astor Faith Luigi Cannella died at the home of his daughter, Josephine Cannella-Krehl, on Jan. 14, 2014, at 5:55 p.m. Gino, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends was born in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, on Dec. 13, 1929. He joined the Italian Merchant Marines at the young age of 16. “Captain” Gino navigated the high seas for better than a decade. He then immigrated to Canada to marry his longtime sweetheart, Caterina. After 17 years, he moved to California to be closer to his father and his brother Vito. From there, Gino relocated his family to Long Island, N.Y., where he joined his childhood friend in working as a brick mason. In 1993, his daughter Josephine and son-inlaw Mike introduced him to St. George Island. Gino instantly fell in love with the island, as it was reminiscent of his native home, and he immediately purchased a home there. For more than 20 years, Gino and Caterina split their time between N.Y. and Florida. He spent the nal weeks of his life in celebration. He celebrated his 84th birthday surrounded by family, Christmas and New Years were spent on S.G.I. with family and his dearest friends, and he was blessed with the opportunity to attend the wedding of his rst grandchild to be married.

Library NEWS Obituary Special to The Times Dr. Frank D. May has a unique Valentine’s Day present for the needy of this area. For the last 13 years, May has provided free dental treatment for Valentine’s Day at his Port St. Joe dental ofce. This year, his ofce will provide this valuable service on Feb. 19. The ofce will schedule appointments with those in need of treatment. To schedule one, you will need to send or bring by a letter to May’s ofce, giving a brief description of your dental needs, and describing your situation that makes you a good candidate for this benet. Send the letter to May’s ofce at 319 Williams Ave, Port St. Joe, FL 32456. Please, no phone calls. Be sure to include your telephone number so we can contact you to schedule an appointment. May will see 20 patients in need of dental treatment, and the hygienists, Anealia Bush and Linda Wright, will see eight to 10 patients each who wish to have their teeth cleaned. The ofce hopes to serve as many as 40 patients. If under the age of 18, patients must be at least 12 years of age and accompanied by a parent or guardian. Treatments provided will include cleaning, x-rays, llings, extractions, diagnostics and pain control. May and his staff participate in “Dentist With a Heart because they wish to impact people who otherwise could not afford to see a dentist and help those people save their teeth, as well as relieve them of any discomfort they may be having. “Our ofce cares about this community and would like to give those in need of our services, their smiles back!” May said.Carrabelle UU nited Methodist Church Carrabelle United Methodist Church’s 2014 Market Days Ministry for the Needy kick-off on Saturday, Jan. 25, was overwhelming. We exceeded our donation goals and received such strong community support. Way beyond our wildest dreams! Thank you, thank you and thank you. This “God’s Ministry” has us in awe. There was an abundant outpouring of testimonial blessings, spiritual fellowship and just a true feeling of God’s presence in all activities. Luke 5 teaches us that God has a plan for us all. Simon and his fellow sherman shed all night and caught nothing. Although very tired they followed God’s command to go to deeper water and let their nets down again… and this time they caught so many sh that their nets began to tear. Peter was awestruck by this miracle and realized his small signicance compared to God’s greatness. God cares about us and understands our community needs. He has a hand in our Ministry for the Needy. Our next event is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22. Please come and be a part of this blessing. Carrabelle United Methodist Church AA line WW alden Family Perhaps you sent a lovely card, Or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a funeral spray, If so we saw it there.

On Dec. 27, 30 volunteers traveled 242 miles by foot, car and boat to count 11,573 birds of 139 species during the 2013 count. This is signi cantly less than two years earlier, in 2011, when more than 24,000 birds were observed during the CBC. But like last year, windy and inclement weather, especially in the morning, was a factor in the lower count. The number of species, 139, is slightly higher than the annual average of 134, since the CBC began locally in 1994. Franklin County organizer John Murphy said the tally is contingent on the acceptance of 10 rare species by the CBC’s organizers at Audubon. Seen here for the rst time during a CBC was a ock of four sandhill cranes spotted over land near Magnolia Cemetery. Sandhills are the world’s most common crane, an ancient bird with a close relative dating back to the Miocene Epoch. Today, sandhills are found mainly in North America. They breed in the northern U.S., Canada, Alaska, and Siberia and travel to wintering grounds in Florida, Texas, Utah, Mexico and California. December is unusually late for sandhills still to be on the move in Florida skies. Also seen here for the rst time during a CBC was a ruby-throated hummingbird feeding in the same Apalachicola historic district feeder as a buff-bellied hummingbird and calliope spotted last year. Although ruby throats are the most common hummingbird in this area, most leave the Panhandle for the winter and migrate to Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. A few remain in the Gulf states and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Remarkably, it is believed tiny migratory ruby throats cross the Gulf of Mexico in a single 18-to-20-hour marathon ight twice a year. The third new addition to the local roster of species was a cave swallow spotted on a spoil island near the John Gorrie Bridge. Although they usually nest in natural caves and sinkholes, cave swallows will nest in or underneath manmade structures like bridges, which might explain their presence on the island. Rock pigeons were absent from the count for the second year in a row and Murphy theorized the local ock may have been decimated by a peregrine falcon that has been observed roosting on the Gorrie Bridge. Sprague’s pipits were observed at the regional airport again this year. Once again, a western kingbird was observed in Apalachicola’s historic district. Sightings of this bird in the eastern U.S. have become more common during the 21st century. The bald eagle population continues to ourish. This year 61 were seen around the county, up from 51 last year. Rod Gasche, who worked with the group counting birds on the river and bay, wrote this stirring description of a bald eagle encounter: “We headed back to the West Pass to reenter the bay on the eastern shoreline of St. Vincent near what is known as dry bar. It is one of the main oyster bars in the winter harvesting area for the bay. As we crossed the pass, one of the members shouted, ‘Look at the eagles!’ Here we saw eventually six ying with soaring seabirds and swooping down to the water. The water was lled with cormorants and a pod of porpoises that were feeding on a bait sh ball! That activity was causing the bait sh to come to the top of the water and the eagles were swooping down and catching sh from the waters! We watched enthralled for a while as none of us had ever expected see something like this! Only one of them was an adult eagle, the rest were immature birds but learning their craft!” The most commonly observed bird was the American robin, with 3,135 individuals counted. The majority of these, 1,910, were counted along the Miles, although robins were observed in every count area except the southern end of St. Vincent Island. This year all three scoter species were observed, a feat only achieved once before in the history of the local CBC. The scoter is a sea duck that breeds in the far north and spends most of its time offshore when in its southern range. According to the Audubon website, the CBC helps inform conservationists about local trends in bird populations and plan strategies to protect birds and their habitat. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency included Audubon’s climate change work from CBC data as one of 26 indicators of climate change in its 2012 report. SPONSORED BY Yes, fish sticks for all this week. Local area lakes rivers and streams will all be affected by this week’s onset of cold, almost freezing water. Our best bet is going to be crappie fishing the deeper holes on the Big River and into the larger lakes. Trout fishing should be decent in deeper holes in the ICW canal, but live shrimp will be hard to find, so go for a grub and jig! Page 8 Special to The Times Florida anglers are no longer required to have and use a venting tool when shing for reef sh such as snapper and grouper in Gulf of Mexico state waters. Removal of this rule means anglers will have the freedom to determine how to best maximize survival of released reef sh using devices they feel are appropriate, depending on the circumstances. Maximizing post-release survival of sh is important in marine sheries management, because it means more sh survive to potentially reproduce and be harvested in the future. Venting tools are hollow, sharpened instruments that provide one way to treat barotrauma, a condition that occurs when sh are brought quickly to the surface from deep water. The change in pressure from depth to surface can cause gases within the sh’s swim bladder to expand, damaging internal organs and reducing the likelihood a sh will survive when returned to the water. Venting tools allow gases to escape from a sh’s body cavity so the sh can swim back down to depth. While venting tools are still a useful way to increase chances of sh survival after release, sh do not always need to be vented to survive upon release. Descending devices, which send sh back down to deeper waters, are another, more recently developed alternative to venting that also can be used now to increase survival rates among sh with barotrauma. The requirement to have a venting tool was removed during the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Nov. 21 meeting, making state regulations consistent with rules in federal waters. Venting tools are not required in Atlantic state or federal waters. The use of non-stainless steel, non-offset circle hooks and dehooking devices are still required in state and federal Gulf waters when shing for reef sh. These tools minimize handling time for reef sh, which aids in survival of the sh upon release. To learn more about recognizing barotrauma and venting tools, and what to do if a sh is suffering from the effects of barotrauma, visit and click on “Saltwater Fishing,” “Recreational Regulations” and “Fish Handling” and look under “Tackle.” Information about reef sh gear rules is available under “Recreational Regulations.” PHOTOS BY MYFWC Example of a dehooking device.

County passes on Eastpoint lease For several years, the county leased a piece of property belonging to Beverly Hewitt and Jerry Hall as a parking area adjacent to the Eastpoint Pavilion. The county retained use by paying real estate taxes and utility costs on the lot and had an option to buy the property contingent on a state grant. An appraisal done by the state valued the lot at $29,000, less than 10 percent of the value placed on the property by Hewitt and Hall, and they refused to sell. The lease expired last year and Hewitt and Hall asked the county for $2,000 monthly to renew it. At the Jan. 21 meeting, commissioners voted unanimously to refuse to renew. They said they would pay taxes on the property through the end of 2013. County chooses expert witness in shing pier suit On Jan. 21, county commissioners voted unanimously to retain Ed Hays as an expert witness to provide testimony on the county’s behalf in an ongoing suit. The suit, now pending in circuit court before Judge George Reynolds, alleges negligence by Orion Marine Construction Inc. in failing to properly secure the two barges onsite at the time of the damage to the shing pier during Tropical Storm Debby.” Hays is also expected to provide testimony as to the amount of the damages and the value of the barges. Attorney Robert Dees represents Franklin County in this matter and he recommended Hays be hired. Hays will receive $150 per hour, not to exceed a total of $10,000. “We would be unable to prosecute the case without this witness,” said County Attorney Michael Shuler. He told commissioners it was unclear if the county could recoup the fees as part of damages. Physicians must provide medical records According to McKinley Lewis, a public information specialist with the Florida Department of Health, state law requires physicians to provide patients with nonpsychiatric records upon request. The law also requires physicians to make arrangements for patients to obtain their records when the physician terminates practice. Disciplinary action can be taken against a physician’s license if they do not comply with these requirements. “In most cases, the Department of Health will try to mediate these cases prior to initiating an investigation in an effort to get records to the patient as quickly as possible,” Lewis said. He said that if patients are having dif culty getting their records from Dr. Stephen Miniat, or any other former or current Franklin County physician, they should contact the Consumer Services Unit at (850) 245-4339 and ask for the Ombudsman.

News BRIEFS Sports BRIEF Apalachicola Dixie Youth hosts registration By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com The Seahawk boys varsity basketball team got back on winning ways last week, downing Aucilla Christian on Thursday before falling to North Bay Haven at senior Night Friday. The Hawks won 47-41 at Aucilla, but Coach Mike Sweatt said it was a mixed picture. “In the Aucilla game we had the worst rst half of the year, scoring just seven points and shooting two-for-20 from the eld,” he said. “Then we had one of our best allaround second halves of the year shooting 13 for 16 from the eld and outscoring them 40-23. The team was down 18-7 at the half. “The good thing about the rst half is we never blamed our bad offense and took it out on our defense. We played consistent defense throughout the game,” said Sweatt. “Recently we have been struggling in the rst half, either the rst or second quarter and then playing bad defense because we are mad at our poor offense,” he said. “If we could put a full game together then we could compete and beat anybody in our district.” Junior Kelsey Jones led the team with 15 points and six rebounds, with seven points and eight rebounds from eighth grader Tyler Farmer. Senior Cameron White had six points and six rebounds, while Marshall Sweet, Logan McLeod and Kenneth Wilson each scored ve. James Gordon scored three, and Wesley Norred one. Against North Bay Haven, the Hawks battled back in the third quarter from a halftime de cit, but couldn’t make up enough ground and lost 60-56. “The North Bay Haven game was very similar to the Aucilla game. We played a poor rst half speci cally in the second quarter. We had to play catch-up, being down 22-33 at the end of the half. But boy did we come out with the most passion and heart I’ve seen all year the second half. We just could not get over the hump of one point.” Sweatt said he thought if the Hawks had jumped ahead they would have seized momentum. “I think if we could have gained the lead one time we would have ran away with it. We needed one stop and one score at the end of the game and just could not come up with either. So we had to foul and they knocked down both free throws to ice the game. Sweatt said seniors Cameron White and Wesley Norred played their best all-around games of the season. White had 20 points and 17 rebounds while Norred had 16 points and ve rebounds, including three straight treys in the second half. Junior Kelsey Jones did not play due to an injury. “This was an impact on the team being he is our leading scorer with 16 points a game and best post defender. But all the team stepped up with his absence and although we came up short I was very proud to call myself a Seahawk that Senior Night. I felt a lot of pride in our team and our fans. The fans were as excited and supportive that I’ve seen since I’ve been here,” he said. Honored before the game were senior cheerleaders Ashley Carroll and Marlyn Lee, and Hawks Cameron White, Wesley Norred, Logan McLeod, Mercury Wynn and James Gordon. Sweatt extended his thanks to Sherry and Michael White, Teresa Ann Martin, Jimmy Gander, Pam Shiver, George Thompson, Pam Byrd, David Hinton, Centennial Bank, Sign Design, and Lawnscapes by Michael White, LLC for making Senior Night a night to remember.
