By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com On Feb. 27, an Apalachicola icon changed hands. The Coombs House, purchased by Bill and Lynn Spohrer in 1990 and lovingly restored, is the grand old lady of the historic district. The grand dame sat in state welcoming visitors to town and acquired sisters over the years forming an inviting yellow oasis on U.S. 98. The house, built in 1905, was badly damaged by re in 1911. It sat deteriorating for decades. It would be dif cult to estimate the service this enormous restoration project has brought to the town and its economy. The inn at 80 Sixth St., which has 23 guest suites, all with private baths, was purchased for a combined $1.56 million by a special purpose entity, CHI Apalach LLC, said spokesman Ketan Vora. CHI is listed in state records as being managed by the Edgewater Valley Forge Fund, a limited partnership out of Doylestown, Penn. Vora also represents investors in a sister property, the WaterStreet Hotel, which was purchased June 20, 2013, by Apalachicola Properties LLC. CHI paid $1.46 million for the main Coombs House and the villas, including the 60-seat Camellia Hall. The adjacent Verandas Suites sold for another $98,400. CHI took out a mortgage of $1.17 million with Centennial Bank to nance the deal. Will the Coombs sale be the end of an era? Only time will tell. Spohrer said she had wanted to sell the property for some time and devote her talents to other pursuits. But the real estate market and perhaps her own tenaciousness prevented a deal from being closed. Then, last fall, tragedy struck. Her husband, Bill, retired from owning an air cargo company in Miami, took a fall while moving a misplaced trash container from the By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com On March 18, county commissioners voted to order William and Donna Nichols to cease construction of an in-ground cement swimming pool at their St. George Island home and have it removed from its encroachment. At the Feb. 18 county meeting, commissioners discussed a request for an after-the-fact variance to the county building code that would allow the pool to remain in place at 1080 E. Gulf Beach Drive in spite of its encroachment into the setback. The countys board of adjustment (BOA) had recommended the variance be granted. Commissioners were told the cost of relocating the pool would be covered by the surveyors liability insurance. In the course of that debate, commissioners were told the pool also encroached into the public right of way, as well as Nichols neighbors to the south. The commissioners voted unanimously to send the variance request back to the BOA, so it could address both encroachments. Last week, the BOA returned the request for variance with a recommendation to allow the pool to remain in place. We dont believe the current location poses any hazards or safety concerns for the general public, William Nichols told commissioners. We plan to build a four-foot privacy fence along the property line and around the pool and landscape it. LOIS SWOBODA | The Times By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com Apalachicola merchants are saying it was the biggest Artwalk ever. On Saturday, over 50 artists from Franklin County and beyond took part in the ninth annual Artwalk. The weather was ideal with blue skies and temperatures hovering at 70 degrees. The number of artists displaying their wares was down a bit from last year but the quality of work on display was excellent.

Jim Estes, deputy director of the FWCs division of marine sheries management, broke down the numbers to the satisfaction of the commissioners at their March 18 meeting. They quizzed him about different aspects of the proposed spending, and in his answers, Estes also smoothed over some troubled waters with the commissioners, who were roiled by a perception that Franklin County had been last to be asked if it had anything to add. This is not by any means nal, we want your input, said Estes. Weve always been able to work with FWC, said Chair Cheryl Sanders. It really concerns us at the time when we saw the bulletin that come out from the federal level. We needed better lines of communication. Estes replied, the lines of communication, thats on me. He said the draft recommendations for spending, which Gov. Scott announced in a Monday press release statewide, were hammered out with input from the local SMART oyster recovery team, as well as the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Department of Environmental Protection. The next step is to get input from you, the legislative delegation and congressional leaders, he said. A lot of details have not been worked out.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, March 27, 2014 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star.com Scores of book lovers ocked to Apalachicola Saturday to meet with upand-coming authors and celebrate the new release of a historical study of ante bellum Apalachicola. On the sunny Saturday, the Fort Coombs Armory was alight with a different kind of radiance, the glow of nimble and creative minds and pens. About 40 authors gath ered to share the fruit of their quills and word pro cessors. Dale Julian, own er of Downtown Books in Apalachicola, facilitated the sale of books for the visiting authors. You deserve a great big pat on the back for what was by any measure a success ful event, Julian wrote to Apalachicola librarian Caty Greene, who organized the third annual Authors in Apalach event. Despite the usual glitches, it looked pretty seamless from the user end. Julian said she sold 150 books, including 52 cop ies of Apalachicola Before 1861 for a total of just over $2,500. Of these sales, she said all but $100 went back out to the authors and to the library. These gures do not in clude books sold by individ ual authors at their tables, Julian wrote. A new edition of Apala chicola Before 1861, the 1966 doctoral dissertation by retired Ole Miss history professor Harry P. Owens, has been published by the Apalachicola Municipal Li brary under the guidance of Greene with help from editor and retired journal ist Sue Cronkite. The highlight of Satur days event was a panel dis cussion about Apalachicola history featuring Owen, Ranger Mike Kinnett, of the Orman House State Historic Site, local historian Mark Curenton and retired Florida State University history professor William Warren Rogers, author of the beloved Outposts on the Gulf, the denitive his tory of Apalachicola and St. George Island. Kinnett opened the dis cussion with a humorous account of his work as a do cent at Orman House. I stand on the shoulders of giants, he said, indicat ing Rogers and Owens and Curenton, who he described as the keeper of the history of Apalachicola. Kinnett was followed by Rogers, who was witty and delightful. You have to have people and a setting before you can have a civilization, he said. The river meant everything here. The river gave birth to the city. He said in addition to being notorious as a Sod om and Gomorrah, Apala chicola is the prettiest place Ive ever seen. He went on to describe colorful characters from the past and present. I never met anybody from Apala chicola who wasnt a real character. It has the best, funniest, most cantanker ous people, Rogers said. Owens praised Rogers, his former professor, who he said was instrumental in me being here today. You fall in love with this place, he said. And its the only town Ive ever seen where you can ride your golf cart all over. Thats worth a lot! Currenton rounded off the panel with a brief his tory of the Armory and an overview of upgrades the county commission has planned for the historic structure. Owens received a key to the city in apprecia tion for his scholarship, and Rogers received a framed sunset photograph by Ed Tiley of the Cape St George Lighthouse. A variety of other panel discussions took place dur ing the authors event. Sharman Burson Ramsey, who has authored several books, most re cently Swimming with Serpents, led a discussion of research for historical ction. Eastpoint author Dawn Radford and Ron Harris of Apalachicola, who recently released his rst book, The Ruby Sea Glass, were on a panel discussing landscape as a backdrop for ction. Charles Farley, author of several locally placed mystery novels, and Dale Cox of Two Egg, who has written extensively on Panhandle history, joined the discussion. Veteran youth authors Leslee Horner, Susan Womble and Adrian Fogelin were joined by local educa tor Lydia Countryman in a dialogue on reaching out to young readers. The authors with works available for sale hailed from a variety of backgrounds. Ellen Ashdown of St. George Island, author of Living with the Dead, a series of stories set in a Tal lahassee cemetery, is a re tired professor of dance. Grammy-nominated songwriter Lathan Hudson was a Nashville xture for decades. Prolic author Rhett DeVane, a dental hygien ist, described herself as a mostly a Southern author. She has penned works for middle grade students, Elsbeth and Sim Tales from the Emerald Moun tains, Evenings on Dark Island and the Hooch series set in her home town of Chattahoochee. Leslee Horner, who is fascinated with all things paranormal, is a mom of two and a former teacher. Her rst book, Summer of Stars, is the beginning of a series about a 15-year old girl who begins remember ing past lives. Susan Womble, also a teacher, authored The Big Wheel, a futuristic tale that tackles the touchy sub ject of human trafcking. She also penned the awardwinning middle grade book, Newts World: Beginnings, the rst in a series about a wheelchair-bound hacker named Newt Willis. Vickie Spray, in addi tion to being a teacher, is a spiritual counselor. Her novel, Rose Painted Wa ters, deals with a girl who becomes a Weeki Wachee mermaid. Of course, Apalachicola author Willoughby Marshall is an architect. Two retired scientists were at the event, wife and husband Diane Hartle and James Hargrove, who re side on St. George Island. A retired biochemical nutritionist, Hargrove has written a popular new ac count of the life of early Franklin County entrepre neur William Popham, The Oyster King. He has also released an account of his fathers experiences as a World War II pilot, Hells Angels Bombardier. Under the umbrella of Hargroves publishing com pany, Hartle, a retired car diovascular neuropharma cologist, has released two books on nutrition for con sumers, dealing with mus cadines and pecans. She said the books are an effort to make detailed nutritional proles of these local crops Coupon Expir es: 4-15-14 CODE: AP00 4516198 Owens and Rogers wow Apalachicola audience PHOTOS BY DAVID ADLER ST EIN AND L O I S SWOBO DA | The Times LEFT: Profs.

The restaurant, located at the Sportsmans Lodge, 99 North Bayshore Ave. in Easpoint, is open only for occasional, noncommer cial, special events, includ ing weddings. Owner Bob Allen said a video camera, speakers, a surround sound system and a 60-inch at-screen television were taken. He said the equipment is used to record weddings and display videos during wed ding parties. Allen said he was forced to postpone two weddings because of the burglary. He said the equip ment was not insured. The break-in was dis covered by David Allen, who is employed by Bob Allen but not related to him. David Allen said he found both the door to a laundry room and the front door of the restaurant open during his regular rounds on that Monday morning. At some point, a dead bolt lock leading into the restaurant from the laundry room had been turned around so the latch to open the lock by hand was on the outside of the door. The thieves appear to have entered and ex ited with the equipment through that door. They might have altered the lock or it may have been changed by some tenants who occupied a room in the building. Bob Allen said he be lieves the thieves were fa miliar with the restaurant and its contents as well as the daily routine of employ ees. The thieves removed the equipment from two wooden cases in which it had been installed. Detective Brett John son, from the Franklin County Sheriffs Ofce, said he ran a search of Florida pawnshops for the equipment without positive results. He said the search was hampered by the fact the make and model of the television are not known. He said investigators have followed through on two tips, including one in volving a juvenile, both of which were dead ends.

More and more the adoption center is transferring, then transporting, our animals to other agencies in more populated areas where they will be adopted more quickly than here. This practice is critical in keeping space available for new intakes and reducing the amount of time an animal spends in the shelter. A typical transport includes eight to 12 animals that are traveling three to four hours away to meet a different transport that will take them to their destination. Typically, we are on the road every other week but with spring here and animals ooding into the shelter, we foresee weekly transports. We are in need of drivers! We provide the vehicle (an SUV), gas and directions; you provide the time. This is a great volunteer opportunity and one that doesnt require an ongoing commitment. Call 6708417 for more information.G UARDIAN AD L ITE M TRAINING Guardian ad Litems are citizens who volunteer to represent children before the court, social service agencies and the community.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, March 27, 2014 A Section Special to The Times With support from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, nine Florida companies reported more than $25 million in sales of seafood products at the threeday Seafood Expo North America last week. Floridas seafood is second to none, and thats why buyers across the country and the globe choose our products for their stores and restaurants, Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam said. Were proud to help bring Florida companies to the expo, where they can showcase their delicious products. The event, formerly known as the International Boston Seafood Show, hosted Apalachicolas Water Street Seafood and Port St. Joes Woods Fisheries, as well as Ariel Seafoods, Destin; Frenchys Stone Crab Company, Palm Harbor; Rods Seafood, Pierson; Shaws Southern Belle Frozen Foods, Jacksonville; Southeastern SeaProducts, Melbourne; Stokes Fish Company, Leesburg; and Sun Shrimp, Fort Myers. On display were snapper, grouper, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, spiny lobster, stone crab claws, farmraised shrimp, farmraised clams, blue crab and wild-caught shrimp. Chef Justin Timineri, Floridas culinary ambassador, cooked and offered samples, including fresh Florida frog legs, to interested buyers. The department works with Florida seafood companies to bring their products to the expo, the largest seafood show in North America, hosting more than 1,000 exhibitors and 19,000 buyers from 100 countries around the globe. Florida ranks among the top 12 states for fresh seafood production. Florida shermen harvest more than 100 million pounds of seafood annually, including all of the nations spiny lobster, 97 percent of stone crabs and 84 percent of grouper, pompano, mullet, pink shrimp and Spanish mackerel. More than 85 different varieties of seafood are harvested in Florida. CORRECTION In the lead story in the Times March 20 issue (Jury: Drunk driving killed Hawkins), the location where the deadly April 17, 2012, crash occurred was incorrect. It should have been reported that the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee spun out of control on U.S. 98 about 1.6 miles west of Lake Morality Road and about 0.8 miles east of the city of Carrabelle. Widow of WWII veteran embarrassed I am concerned that American veterans were insulted earlier this month during the Camp Gordon Johnston celebration on Friday night, March 7. I am 86 years old and have worked as a volunteer at the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum for over 10 years. Every year, Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82 hosts a dinner and mixer for the visiting veterans, their families and members of the ladies auxiliary the evening before the parade. Every year, I attend the reunion. I worked all day that Friday at the museum, left the museum after 4 p.m., laid down for a few minutes to rest and then went to the Legion at a quarter to six. The party started at 6 p.m. I sat down at a table that has always been reserved for our party, Mary Britz, Doris Johnson and myself. There was already a big sign that said it was reserved. Nobody was there yet for our table but me. I went into the bar and bought a Coke. The bar was full. I got my Coke, and I went back to the table. All of a sudden, Tommy Larsen, the post commander, comes up to me and says, Are you a member of the ladies auxiliary here? I said no and he said, Well, you cant stay here. He was terrible. He told me two or three times, You have to leave here now. Nobody else was in the room. It used to be all of the guys come to the Legion on that Friday night. Every year, Mary and I went together and sat at that table. For many years, nothing was ever said about that. Now, they posted a sign outside saying that the post was not open to the public. When I got home, I didnt know what to do. I was dumbfounded. My husband of 63 years, Buddy, who was a World War II Marine veteran and a paid-up member of Legion Post 82, died in January. My neighbor, Wallace Giddens, went to the Legion post to ask Mr. Larsen to apologize, but he said he would not apologize. He said he was not sorry. The only time I go to the Legion post is every year when they have the reunion. Im never going to the Legion again. It was so embarrassing. That was like disgracing all of the veterans who were there that night. Mary Staff Lanark Village Shame stems from violating standards of decency Your March 13 issue has an editorial page column (Page A4 We need rational sex laws) with no authors name. I believe it should be the policy of the newspaper to accurately attribute editorial contributions to the names of actual people. The Florida Action Committee (FAC) organization from which you sourced this column has some very good points regarding the fear surrounding child abductions by strangers since they are so rare. The point about the low recidivism rate was also informative and was a surprise to me. However, the FAC position that by serving their sentences, criminals have paid for their crimes is a longstanding, and totally bogus, claim. All the criminal has done is served the punishment declared by legislatures. The victim may have suffered irreversible loss. Restitution might be impossible. We should not feel too sorry for those who suffer a lifetime of shame because of their violation of common standards of human decency. Tom Stover Eastpoint Letters to the EDITOR New mortgage rules will protect against risky loans Good news for people shopping for a mortgage and for current homeowners facing foreclosure because they can no longer afford their home loan: New mortgage regulations drafted by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently took effect and they provide a slew of new rights and protections for consumers. One of the cornerstones of the new mortgage rules is that lenders now are required to evaluate whether borrowers can afford to repay a mortgage over the long term that is, after the initial teaser rate has expired. Otherwise, the loan wont be considered whats now referred to as a quali ed mortgage. Quali ed mortgages are designed to help protect consumers from the kinds of risky loans that brought the housing market to its knees back in 2008. But obtaining that designation is also important to lenders because it will help protect them from lawsuits by borrowers who later prove unable to pay off their loans. Under the new abilityto-pay rules, lenders now must assess and document multiple components of the borrowers nancial state before offering a mortgage, including the borrowers income, savings and other assets, debt, employment status and credit history, as well as other anticipated mortgage-related costs. Quali ed mortgages must meet the following guidelines: The term can't be longer than 30 years. Interest-only, negative amortization and balloon-payment loans aren't allowed. Loans over $100,000 can't have upfront points and fees that exceed 3 percent of the total loan amount. If the loan has an adjustable interest rate, the lender must ensure that the borrower quali es at the fully indexed rate (the highest rate to which it might climb), versus the initial teaser rate. Generally, borrowers must have a total monthly debt-to-income ratio of 43 percent or less. Loans that are eligible to be bought, guaranteed or insured by government agencies like Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration are considered quali ed mortgages until at least 2021, even if they don't meet all QM requirements. Lenders may still issue mortgages that arent quali ed, provided they reasonably believe borrowers can repay and have documentation to back up that assessment. New, tougher regulations also apply to mortgage servicers the companies responsible for collecting payments and managing customer service for the loan owners. For example, they now must: Send borrowers clear monthly statements that show how payments are being credited, including a breakdown of payments by principal, interest, fees and escrow. Fix mistakes and respond to borrower inquiries promptly. Credit payments on the date received. Provide early notice to borrowers with adjustable-rate mortgages when their rate is about to change. Contact most borrowers by the time they are 36 days late with their payment. Inform borrowers who fall behind on mortgage payments of all available alternatives to foreclosure (e.g., payment deferment or loan modi cation). With limited exceptions, mortgage servicers now cannot: initiate foreclosures until borrowers are more than 120 days delinquent (allowing time to apply for a loan modi cation or other alternative); start foreclosure proceedings while also working with a homeowner who has already submitted a complete application for help; or hold a foreclosure sale until all other alternatives have been considered. For more details on the new mortgage rules, visit www.consumer nance. gov/mortgage. Bottom line: You should never enter into a mortgage (or other loan) you cant understand or afford. But its nice to know that stronger regulations are now in place to help prevent another housing meltdown. Jason Alderman directs Visas nancial education programs.

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, March 27, 2014 Visiting artists included Jean Marie McDonnell, of Daphne, Ala.; Linda Rabon of Havana, Marta Elam Dorton of Lexington, Ky., and Denise Callaghan of Ontario, Canada, who said she traveled here speci cally for the event. Local galleries put their best face forward for the swarm of visitors. The Cotton Exchange hosted demonstrations and exhibited work by local painters Lynn Spohrer, Susan Richardson, Ed Springer and Pam Corcoran. New this year were awards for best in show in the divisions of ne art, pop art and photography. Entries were judged by three anonymous volunteers who visited booths and galleries. In ne arts, rst place went to Apalachicolas Richardson, who works in oils. Second was taken by water colorist Cassie Tucker of Wakulla County. Apalachicolas Spohrer received an honorable mention. The top award for pop art went to basket weaver Rabon. Second was taken by ceramic sculptor Ann Eason of Cape San Blas. Sue Ellen McMillan won an honorable mention for her multimedia paintings using pottery shards, broken jewelry and personal keepsakes of all kinds. Two Apalachicola artists led the eld in photography. Richard Bickel took rst for his stunning portrayals of the people of the Apalachicola Bay and more exotic locales. Lane Autrey took second for her photos capturing natural beauty. Charlie Sawyer of Tallahassee won an honorable mention. Anita Grove, director of the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce and Artwalk organizer, said judging the art was a late addition to the event and she will work to re ne the process over the next year. The crowd grew until parking was at a premium and hundreds of visitors wandered from booth to gallery to shop. In the afternoon, the second phase of Artwalk began at 2 p.m. when 17 restaurants and bistros opened their doors for an open-air wine tasting and many offered special dishes in honor of the occasion. Several of the venues featured live music. Grove said about 250 people paid to sample wine. Dale Julian of Downtown Books said she had an extremely busy day on Saturday. She hosted a book signing for author Scott Marlowe in addition to welcoming three artists to her sidewalk. At one point we had 200 people in here, said Carrie Hall, of Up the Stairs. Artist Carole Jayne said Artemis Gallery was packed throughout the afternoon. She said two customers who visited Saturday returned Sunday morning to buy paintings. The day brought us a tremendous amount of traf c, said Leslie Coon of the Bowery Gallery. We had three artists working outside in addition to our standing exhibit. I think it was a good thing that the art was more spread out this year. It encouraged people to walk all over the downtown area. Spohrers property at the corner of Water Street and Avenue E. He hit his head on a concrete container. His condition was grave. Just before Christmas, Lynn brought him home from the hospital, believing she might be about to devote years to his recovery. At about the same time, she noticed strangers walking around the Coombs House. Negotiations began with the help of the Susan Bassett real estate team of Bassett, Shelley Shepard and Jerry Thompson. It seemed like the answer to a number of problems she was facing. The Spohrers received a letter of intent over the holidays. They moved with good speed. Bassett said, praising Lynn Spohrers efforts at marketing the Coombs. There was major interest, Bassett said. She had done such a beautiful job of presentation and marketing. The deal was closed in eight weeks. Lynn Spohrer looks back with nostalgia on her restoration work in Apalachicola. We bought our rst house here, on the island, in 1982. We still own it. In 1990, we bought the two worst buildings in town. The Coombs House and the Cotton Exchange on Water Street. There wasnt much going on here then. We thought this is a town, like Savannah and Mobile. It just needed somebody to start. We saw the potential charm. We thought this is a town they havent ruined yet. The Spohrers purchased the Coombs House for $110,000 after three years of negotiations. Then the real work began. The structure took two years to restore. There was no plumbing, electricity, air-conditioning or heat, only a small galleystyle kitchen and one original bathroom. Most of the windows were boarded up and one entered via a board leaned against the wall. An internationally known designer of luxury resorts, Lynn put her special branding on restoring the house while attempting to use whatever existing architectural assets were salvageable. She said she initially envisioned the project more as a hobby than a hands-on business. In the end, the Spohrers acquired adjacent properties and expanded the inn to its current size, 46 double-occupancy rooms. Today, the inn has been praised in reviews by newspapers including the Tallahassee Democrat, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Miami Herald and New York Times. Country Inns Magazine gave it an award for Affordable Luxury, Travel and Leisure Magazine named it One of the 30 Outstanding Small Inns in the United States, and readers of Florida Monthly Magazine voted it The Best Bed and Breakfast Inn in Florida. Looking back, Lynn Spohrer said, It was not a great real estate investment. It was not in our best interest. We felt like we could make a difference. Indeed, with a few minor exceptions, the Spohrers were in the vanguard of historic restoration in Apalachicola and Franklin County. Asked about future plans for the Coombs House, Vora said, We want to stay with the way shes run it. We will continue with what has been done and learn from it. Vora said he is proud of the operation at the WaterStreet Hotel and gave credit for success to the staff. The challenge is just getting a property, not just the physical building, but the operations, the way you want, he said. The Spohrers say they plan to keep their house in Apalachicola. This is our home, said Lynn Spohrer. She plans to continue her design business, travel more and paint. Since the sale, she has become more absorbed in plein air painting, working almost every day. While she has been fascinated by plein air for years, she hopes that, now, she can pursue her passion. to draw grants against. The bulk of the money, $4.57 million, will be used to restore the habitat of Apalachicola Bay. We know we have to do a lot of work in the bay, Estes said. Because it is cheaper and more ef cient to distribute shells by barge, and larger areas can be covered, $1.76 million will be spent on barge shelling, handled by competitive bid, with reimbursement paid after the work is complete. The remaining $2.8 million will be spent directly on shermen, who can replenish the shallower, nearshore, hard-to-reach areas. We tried to get the most out of both (methods), said Estes. If everything goes right it will be two or three years before the bay comes back. Another $415,473 will cover the cost of the state monitoring the success of shelling programs, and so that the shery can be adaptively managed as the oyster population recovers, read the governors announcement. Commissioner Smokey Parrish spoke at the greatest length about the draft recommendations, offering suggestions for improvement. Looking at your allotments I think were moving in the right direction, he said. The one overall goal were all trying to achieve is the restoration of Apalachicola Bay. He said of cials could learn from the experience of 1985, when the bay was shut down for a year due to storm damage. I would suggest to you we go back and look at some of the protocols and procedures we used during that time that worked very well, said Parrish. Were facing the same situation we were facing then. We need to take steps we expend these funds wisely. Parrish encouraged money be spent on relaying, to put live oysters on shells, to enhance the bays recovery time. Is somebody going to go out and assess the bars that are going to be planted? Is someone going to be monitoring these shells are dropped on top of the bar and not just dumped in the mud? Parrish said. Thats a very genuine concern. We need to know the locations of bars, and we need to be monitoring that to make sure were using the money in the right fashion to bring this back, he said. Parrish also called for tighter monitoring of the $563,233 that will be spent on vocational and educational training for oyster industry workers. I want to make sure we are actually achieving the goal were shooting for and actually reaching that objective, he said. The fourth component of the spending, $768,060, will be spent to reimburse Apalachicola Bay seafood processors for the cost of upgrades to their physical plants. Estes said reimbursement for costs, either whole or in part, will be done to better ensure that the processors are able to comply with requirements set by state and federal oyster regulators. Dealers are hurting trying to accommodate industry regulations, said Parrish. Parrish also suggested that check stations be reinstated to monitor whats being taken out of this bay, and to look at whats being taken out of the bay and try to put in some conservation c criteria. To make sure legal oysters are being taken out of the bay. He warned that with half-shell product being shipped out to raw bars, there may soon be a problem with getting suf cient shells to restock the bars. Theres not a great abundance of shell weve always used, he said. The half shell going out to raw bars, those shells dont come back to Apalachicola Bay. Our resources are very limited as to where we get the shell to put in bay. And a lot of people are opposed to using fossilized shell. Commissioner Noah Lockley stressed that the spending of the money must be done on a fair basis, especially since the current crisis affects far more than the 200-plus oystermen who will take part in the shelling program. You need to include a lot of them, all of them, he told Estes. You cant do this for a select few. Its not a buddy-buddy plan or a cousin-cousin plan.

Thanks so much, April Dalton President Franklin County School Nutrition Card of THANKS Fred Chapman Millender left this earth and stepped into heaven on Monday, March 17, 2014. He was 87 years old, born on Sept. 22, 1926. He was a ghter and fought to stay on this earth until the end, beating throat cancer in 2012; however, recently it had returned. Fred was born in Carrabelle and lived there until 1943 when his parents, eight brothers and one sister moved to Eastpoint. The reason he said was because it was easier to sh in the bay than in Carrabelle. His dad, he and his brothers would use a push pole about 12 feet long and a small open boat to sh and catch oysters on low tides. Later they were able to purchase a 3 horsepower motor, making work easier. A blessing from God, he said. Fred was in the seafood business all of his life. For several years he would pack and ship oysters and other seafood to various states and within Florida. Later he enjoyed his little seafood market where he could meet and greet locals and visitors. Visitors were enchanted by his stories, songs and that smile. He had a song for everything. God blessed Fred with an amazing musical talent. He learned to play almost every instrument he picked up, including guitar, piano and organ. He was part of a band called the Southern Hillbillies during World War II and would entertain the soldiers from Camp Gordon Johnston outside of Carrabelle. He and his brothers also traveled to Blountstown and other towns by train to play music. After he was married in 1949 he began playing on Friday nights at the Pentecostal Church in Eastpoint, but would rush out to play for the dance down the street at Maudes. Eventually he stopped playing outside of the church. Fred never met a stranger. He could converse with high government ofcials and with those with little. He was generous and kind, always ready and willing to help someone in need, including strangers coming into town. He would say that they could be an angel of the Lord. People from all around the country and some from other countries fell in love with him and would enjoy his stories and songs. He was featured in several documentaries and written about with photos of him in newspapers in other countries, including Germany and Italy. Out-of-state visitors would come back each year to see him and buy seafood and would tell their friends to go by and meet Fred. He cherished the pictures that they sent of them with him. He was photographed often by well-known photographer, Richard Bickel in Apalachicola, and some of his photos are in Richards studio and included in some of his books. In Sept. 1949 Fred married the love of his life, Minnie Varnes from Apalachicola. Until he was unable to do so a couple of weeks ago, he would greet her singing Hello Darling. They would also sing I Hope We Walk The Last Mile Together, and they did. Fred is survived by Minnie; their children: Marsha Millender Watson (John, deceased), Tallahassee, Susan Millender Reeder (Howard), Apalachicola; and Fred Randall Millender (Sharon), Eastpoint. He had 11 grandchildren: Chad Zingarelli, Heath Watson, Kevin Reeder, Jenny Reeder, Melanie Zingarelli, Ashley Watson Shiver, Andrea Reeder Amison, Randi Marie Millender, Brett Randall Millender (deceased), Joshua Fredric Watson, and Peyton Millender; his brother Howard Millender (MaryNell), Texas, several great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Fred was preceded in death by his grandson, Brett Randall Millender, parents Marion and Willie Mae Millender, brothers Hollis, JC, Ernest Marion, Otis, Bert, Willis and sister Edna. He was greatly loved by his family and friends and he loved them. Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon, March 22 at the Eastpoint Church of God. Public visitation was at 3 p.m, followed by the service. Fred was loved and he loved. He was a true gentleman. His mantra was We Will Make It Work. He will be missed by the many, many lives that he touched. Wonder what he is doing in heaven right now? Fred Millender FRED MILLENDER The Rev. Joseph C. Eckstine, born in Hagerstown, Md., on Dec. 4, 1925, died in Jacksonville on Friday, March 21, 2014. Joe and his wife Ruth were longtime residents of Magnolia Bluff, Eastpoint. He was a retired minister of the Presbyterian Church, USA, last serving in that capacity in Port St. Joe. The Rev. Eckstine was a combat infantryman of World War II, awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. He was a graduate of Southwestern College in Memphis, Tenn., and from Columbia Theological Seminary. The Rev. Eckstine is survived by his wife Ruth B. Eckstine, three daughters Randi (Jesse) Hamner, Gena (Steve) Sager, and Virginia (Greg) McMillan; and seven grandchildren. A memorial service was held at the Westminster Woods on Julington Creek auditorium in Jacksonville on Wednesday afternoon, March 26. In addition there will be an interment service in the Memorial Garden Columbarium at Trinity Church, 79 Sixth St., Apalachicola at 3 p.m. on Good Friday, April 18. Family will visit with friends after these services.The Rev. Joseph Eckstine Michael Robert Snyder passed away on Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Born April 28, 1956, Michael was a loving father of two daughters; Heidi Jones and Nancy Bardin, six grandchildren ages 2-17, an older sister Marsha Hill; and a younger brother, Bill Snyder. Michaels mother, Ruth Martin, passed away one year and four days before he did, and his father, Bob Snyder, passed away 20 years ago. Michael called the Jackson, Ala., area his home for many years before moving to Georgia, then returning to Camden, Ala. His nal days were spent in Florida, where he had moved to be closer to his mother in her nal years.

So well-camouaged are the nests, eggs and chicks of shorebirds like the snowy plover that they can easily be stepped on or missed unless people know to watch out for them. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is reminding beachgoers to be on the lookout and avoid disturbing bird nurseries on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida. Among the states beach-nesting shorebirds facing conservation challenges are the snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer, American oystercatcher and Wilsons plover. By taking a few simple steps, people can enjoy the beach without disturbing beach-nesting shorebirds and their chicks, which increases the birds chances of survival, said Nancy Douglass, who works on shorebird conservation at the FWC. While the populations of beach-nesting birds are declining, peoples willingness to protect shorebirds and their chicks contributes to keeping them present on Florida beaches for generations to come, Douglass said. People at the beach, including those paddling canoes, kayaks and boards along the shore, can help beach-nesting shorebirds by following basic guidelines: Keep your distance. If birds become agitated or leave their nests, you are too close. A general rule is to stay at least 300 feet from a nest. Birds calling out loudly and dive-bombing are giving signals you need to back off. Never intentionally force birds to y or run. They use up energy they need for nesting, and eggs and chicks may be left vulnerable to the suns heat and to predators. Respect posted areas. Avoid posted nesting sites and use designated walkways when possible. Its best not to take pets to the beach, but if you do, keep them on a leash. Keep the beach clean and do not feed wildlife. Food scraps attract predators such as raccoons and crows. Litter on beaches can entangle birds and other wildlife. Spread the word. If you see people disturbing nesting birds, gently let them know how their actions may hurt the birds survival. If they continue to disturb nesting birds, report their activities to the FWCs Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922), #FWC or *FWC on your cell phone or by texting Tip@MyFWC.com. You also can report nests that are not posted to Wildlife Alert. Wildlife photographers also should follow the rules that protect beach-nesting shorebirds: Remain behind the posted area, with no part of you or your camera equipment extending beyond the string or signs. Dont exceed 10 minutes. Too much time photographing near the nest may stress the birds. Dont push birds around the beach. Stay far enough away so the birds do not change their behavior in response to your presence. They need to feed and rest without disturbance. For more information, go to MyFWC.com/Shorebirds and download the Share the Beach with Beach-Nesting Birds brochure. Or go to the Florida Shorebird Alliance at www. shorebirdalliance.org. LEARN MORE AT APRIL 3 LECTURE To learn more about our amazing shorebirds nesting on our beaches, join Bonnie Samuelsen, project manager for Audubon Floridas Coastal Bird Stewardship Program at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserves visitors center on Thursday, April 3, from 2 to 3 p.m. The presentation will include a photo presentation to learn more about these rare and declining birds and the statewide efforts to protect them.

In photo at right, son Charles Quirk is seen holding the 15inch long, 1.5-pound sh, on the big end of an invasive species that tends to average 12-15 inches in length. Amanda Nalley, a spokesperson for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said the record catch so far is 18.6 inches in North Carolina, but they can reach sizes larger than 19 inches. One reason for that is because most lion sh are caught by spearing or handheld nets. Nalley said the FWC will take up a draft rule at its April meeting designed to further prevent lion sh introductions and facilitate efforts to remove these non-native predators. The proposed rule would create an exception to allow persons using rebreathers to harvest lion sh; would allow the FWC to issue permits to tournaments or other approved events for the use of spearing gears in areas where spear shing is otherwise prohibited; and prohibit any further importation of live lion sh or the development of lion sh aquaculture in Florida. Dolores Cassel Quirk, who is the granddaughter of Delores and Walter Sarge Cassel, one of the original residents of St. George Island, said her husband plans to have the sh mounted. Many people enjoy the shs taste, but care must be taken to avoid the spines, that can impart a painful sting. For more info, visit tinyurl.com/lee8h99. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com Gelsemium sempervirens is a twining vine native to warm temperate and tropical America from Guatemala north to Virginia. Right now, it is blooming in our gardens and along roadsides. It has a number of common names including yellow jessamine or jasmine, false jasmine, Carolina jasmine evening trumpet ower, gelsemium and woodbine. The term woodbine is used for many native climbing plants including Virginia creeper. This is not a true jasmine. Yellow jasmine can grow to 20-feet tall when given suitable climbing support in trees, with thin stems. It is evergreen, with lustrous, dark green leaves. The bright yellow, trumpet shaped owers are borne in clusters. The owers sometimes have an orange center. They are pleasantly fragrant and produce nectar that attracts a range of pollinators. With proper training, the yellow jasmine vine can cover an arbor, trellis, fence, wall or pergola. It also works well as a porch cover where the blossoms attract hummingbirds and spicebush swallowtail butter ies. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildlife Center website lists yellow jasmine as a source of nectar for hummingbirds. It owers in early spring. Yellow jasmine must be planted in full sun for it to ower profusely, and, given enough sun and warmth, a second wave of owers can reappear in autumn. If you plant your yellow jasmine on a slope or bank, it will serve as a bushy, rambling groundcover. Where the vine tendrils touch the ground, they form vigorous runners that allow the plant to spread, sprawl and naturalize. Whether grown as a vine or as groundcover, this jasmine has no serious pest problems. Yellow jessamine is the state ower of South Carolina. Historically this plant was used to treat rashes, measles, tonsillitis, rheumatism, pneumonia, malaria, cramps, hysteria and headaches. It was once a popular remedy for heart disease. All parts of this plant contain highly toxic strychnine-related chemicals and should not be eaten. The sap may cause skin irritation in sensitive individuals. Children, mistaking this ower for honeysuckle, have been poisoned by sucking the nectar from the ower. The nectar is also toxic to honeybees, but may be bene cial to bumblebees since it is toxic to some of their parasites. Animals and birds may also be susceptible to the toxin, according to some experts. LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Gelsemium sempervirens Yellow jasmine: Pretty as a poison A big little victory against lion sh CHARLIE QUIRK | Special to The Times SPONSORED BY Inshore/Bay Fishing conditions are starting to improve since we have started to dry out after months of constant rain. The ICW canal in St. Joe is full of small sheepshead and some redfish this week. Live shrimp drifted by the old pilings and the new sea wall will produce fish.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Seahawks varsity baseball team played improved baseball last week, including an 11-3 win Tuesday night against West Gadsden. On March 18 at home against Bozeman, the Hawks fell 5-0 to the district rival Bucks. Senior Bobby Curry six innings in the losing effort, striking out three and giving up four hits and four runs and had 3 strikeouts. The team avoided a no-hitter with a hit by senior James Newell. On March 20 at Liberty County, Franklin County lost a tough one, 8-6, after securing a 6-2 lead going into the fth inning. They outhit us, said coach Aaron York. Leading hitters were James Newell, who went 2-4, senior Alex Causey, who smacked a double to go 1-4, and sophomore Trenton Lee, who also went 1-4 with a double. On Tuesday at district rival West Gadsden, the Hawks won 113, as Newell and Lee combined for the win. James Newell secured the victory with three innings of work, striking out ve, while Lee got the save by hurling three innings and striking out three. Lee went 2-2, with a single and a homerun. Sophomore Matt Murray and James Newell each went 1-3 and scored a run, while seventh grader Chris Newell went 1-4 with a run scored. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Lady Seahawks won twice at home last week, including a dramatic win against South Walton on Friday. On March 18, the girls got the ball rolling with a 17-4 win against Altha in ve innings. Senior Morgan Mock almost hit for the cycle, going 3-3 with a double, triple and a grand slam for seven RBI. Seventh-grader Melanie Collins also went 3-3, with a pair of RBI and two stolen bases. Senior Ally Millender, freshman Scout Segree, senior Ashley Carroll, freshman Vanessa Simmons, junior Calli Westbrook and freshman each had a hit. The winning pitcher, seventh-grader Allie Kirvin, struck out a pair in the one inning she worked and gave up no runs. Freshman Megan Collins pitched two innings, giving up two hits and three unearned runs. Carroll pitched one inning, giving up one hit and one unearned run. Millender pitched one inning with two strikeouts and no runs. The game was shortened to ve innings because of the mercy rule. On Friday, the Lady Hawks won 4-3 in dramatic fashion over district foe South Walton. With Franklin County trailing 3-1 in the fth, clean-up hitter Segree snapped a twoout, two-run, single to left eld to score Allie Kirvin and junior Madison Newell. Both had walked and advanced into scoring position on a single by Melanie Collins. With the score tied at 3 going into the top of the seventh, South Walton pitcher Megan Ellison attempted to score on a ball hit to left eld. Newell was backing up in left and threw the ball in to shortstop Mock, who relayed to catcher Millender who blocked the plate and tagged out the South Walton speedster. Two outs later, Millender led off the bottom of the seventh inning by reaching rst base after being hit by a pitch. She stole second and advanced to third when the catcher bobbled the ball on a bunt attempt by Collins, who then hit an in eld single. Collins stole second, and Mock then grounded to the shortstop to score Millender and won the game. It was our biggest district win of the season, and I thought it was tting that seniors Morgan and Ally were both part of saving the game in the top of the seventh and then scoring the winning run in the bottom of the seventh, head coach Scott Collins said. But, the most valuable player of this game was sophomore pitcher Krista Martina. We made a couple of costly errors early in the game, but Krista kept battling and shut their offense down by striking out 12 batters and only giving up one hit. Sophia Kirvin added a triple to Segrees two-run single, and Collins ended the night with two singles as the Lady Seahawks only managed four hits. The team is now 15-5 overall and 7-3 in the district. The Lady Seahawks play a doubleheader at Wewahitchka today, March 27, to make up a previous rainout. Sports BRIEF PLAYER OF THE WEEK Franklin County sophomore Krista Martina performed brilliantly on Friday to enable the Lady Seahawks to secure a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over South Walton. She kept battling throughout on the mound, and shut down the South Walton offense down by striking out 12 batters and only giving up one hit. Krista had her best game of the year and found a groove that I havent seen before, coach Scott Collins. PHIL COALE | Special to the Times Senior Alex Causey readies to catch a y for the Seahawks.

Local A10 | The Times Thursday, March 27, 2014 Angela Myers, who owns the property adjacent to the original encroachment, said allowing the variance sets a bad example. When you look at property value of St. George Island, the land is very expensive, she said. This is one of the biggest investments of our life. We pay a lot of taxes, and we are asking for your protection. Myers said she offered to have the land resurveyed, even though it was not her responsibility, but was distracted by her mothers death in November and failed to hire a surveyor. There was no way to tell where the pool was going to be until it was built, said her husband, Eric Myers. No marking or anything and no way for us to oppose it until it was built. It affects 6 percent of our property; 6 percent of our property has been taken from us. Commissioner Pinki Jackel said she had spoken to both the Myers and Nichols. Theres been a lot of comment about what the law is, she said. In my assessment of how this came about, there was no malice. Its an unfortunate situation for all parties. Remedies were available that the Myers were not able to pursue. It will be a hardship on other parties to expect them to recreate everything. Half of you are going to be unhappy no matter what I do. Commissioner William Massey moved to allow the variance and let the pool remain in place. Jackel seconded his motion. It failed 2-3, with Commissioners Smokey Parrish, Cheryl Sanders and Noah Lockley opposed. They will have to remove the pool, Sanders said.
