Sheriff Mike Mock on Monday morning informed relatives of his conclusion that Ronald Joseph Page, 24, would not be charged in the April 3 shooting death of Charles Thomas Wayne Bubba Fasbenner Jr. The 20-year-old had entered Pages yard at 277 Timothy Simmons Road minutes before 9:45 p.m., when Pages mother, JoAnna Page, called 911 to alert them that her son had shot a man. Minutes later, Apalachicola Sgt. Wesley Creamer and Of cer Ginger Creamer arrived on the cul-de-sac, around a secluded curve off 25th Street, to nd Fasbenner dying from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Emergency medical personnel did not transport the young man to the hospital, as he had died despite their frantic effort to apply CPR. The bewildering shock that a well-liked young man, a towering lineman on the Seahawk football team, regarded as a good friend by his classmates in the Franklin County High School Class of 2012, was dead from what so far appears to have been a tragic series of miscommunications spread quickly throughout the county like torrential rain.

The commission got the easy stuff out of the way early in the meeting, unanimously approving an ordinance to allow golf carts to travel streets at night provided they meet state requirements for travel in darkness. Golf carts will be able to operate from sunset to sunrise, provided they possess brake lights, turn signals and integrated headlights, which are those connected to the vehicle. They also must have a windshield to operate during the hours of darkness, but unlike the other items, a windshield is currently required for daylight operation.Funds sought to avert Bluff Road culvert collapseBy LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com County commissioners voted last week to take emergency measures if the condition of a damaged culvert worsens. At the April 1 meeting, County Planner Alan Pierce told commissioners a large culvert under Bluff Road has been found to have serious damage. During a recent inspection related to the resurfacing of Bluff Road, the culvert was found to be completely corroded on the underside. Pierce said the sides of the culvert are bowing in, and the structure could collapse during a heavy rain event. He said county consulting rm Preble Rish Engineering is reviewing options for repair with the Florida Department of Transportation, and the current elliptical culvert might be replaced with two 6-foot circular pipes. The culvert drains about 1,000 acres, 600 of which are on airport property. Pierce said he has inquired whether DOT funds for improving airport drainage could be used to contribute to the cost of repair. Pierce said the situation is exacerbated by the resurfacing of Bluff Road that is underway. He said the culvert should be CHARLES BUBBA FASBENNERSheriff: Shooter defending his homeVOL. 128 ISSUE 50 See CULVERT A5 See GOLF CARTS A2 Photos by DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The TimesMore than 145 young people attended Saturday evenings 2014 Franklin County High School prom, which culminated in the Grand March watched by scores of adoring parents and friends.

On the agenda was a proposal to transform the intersections of Commerce Street and Avenue D, Commerce Street and Avenue E and 11th Street and Avenue F from two-way to four-way stops. City Administrator Betty Taylor-Webb said businesses contacted downtown did not object to the four-way stops and that she planned to speak with John Croom regarding the Avenue F intersection, as well as about Crooms Transportation vehicles that appear to be an obstruction in the yard. Commissioner Brenda Ash said she has heard questions raised by residents as to whether more stop signs are needed. The city is full of stop signs; you might as well get on a bicycle, she said. Is it actually necessary? Is it serving the purpose we set it up for? Police ofcer Pam Lewis said most people think theyre a nuisance, but Clarice Powell, a resident who long has asked for speed bumps and other trafc control measures in her neighborhood and elsewhere, objected. We hear that people are tired of people speeding up and down the streets, Powell said. Harrison Jones rose to object to speed bumps, which he said are tearing up his vehicles. I had to put in $1,800, I had to replace my struts, for the same speed bumps in front of my house, he said. Every time you ride up on those things, youre about to tear your car apart. They have been a nuisance to me, and I have grandchildren. We need to watch our children. I think we have too many stop signs. Theres just so many, Im stopping, going, stopping, going. Give us just one street to breeze through. Jerry Weber, who resides with Powell on Frederick Humphries Street, next to the ofces of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, spoke in strong support of trafc control. This is not about roads, this is not about speeding, this is not about speed bumps, this is not about stop signs, he said. This is all about respect for our neighborhoods. I think youre nuts to pull the speed bumps out. Weber shared photos with commissioners of what he said were ticketable offenses. We dont put this in just because we like speed bumps. We have a problem in this community, he said. Somebodys going to get killed. Im putting you on notice right now. It is disrespect in our communities. We have a lot of disrespect from a lot of our other neighborhoods. Weber said he has had to clear away dogs hit by cars. How do you kill a dog in a neighborhood with a 20 mph speed limit? he said. These are hit-and-runs. They dont stop; we see it happen. The dont-want-as dont want to abide by the rules in our neighborhood, he said. They think its an old dirt road. Its up to you all to say were taking the bull by the horn. Taylor-Webb said she would look more closely at whether the city could erect removable posts or chain closed the gate that enters into the parking lot of the FDOACS building. She said Fire Chief George Watkins has objected to the closure, that both the gate and fence are owned by the state and that it is not clear whether the city can block entrance to a state agency. County Commissioner Noah Lockley spoke in favor of creating one through street without stop signs that would enable swifter passage by motorists. We need a breakthrough street on the Hill, he said. We usually we get a request from somebody who sits in the neighborhood, Johnson said. If those stop signs are there or those speed bumps are there, somebody has asked for that. We dont arbitrarily put them there. Carol Bareld said instead of creating more four-way stops, Apalachicola police ofcers need to write more trafc tickets. If they pay a ticket, that will slow them down enough, she said. The commission agreed to direct the issue to the citys Community Pride committee, a public forum to discuss matters that pertain to the quality of life in the city.

LocalThe Times | A3Thursday, April 10, 2014By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com A group of American heroes trekked across Franklin County last week raising money to aid the families of those who give all for their country. For the third consecutive year, members of the Air Commando Ruck walked between McDill Air Force Base in Tampa, and Hurlburt Field in Mary Esther. This year, 14 men and women two teams of three and two teams of four donned 40-pound rucksacks for the 450-mile march. The journey began on March 30 and ended April 4. The teams rotate; each team does 12 miles. The goal of $30,000 was reached. According to www.aorcommando.org, the website for the Air Commando Association, The ruck was originally created to honor the men that paid the ultimate sacri ce that night, but since then, we have expanded the march to include all the members that have fallen due to combat or training exercises. Team 1 crossed the John Gorrie Bridge on April 2, but stopped for an interview. This was the friendliest stretch weve gone through on the ruck, said spokesperson Meagan Freeman. Everyone we passed at least waved. Some people stopped to talk and some even turned around and came back to see what was going on. She praised the Port Inn in Port St. Joe for its help with the ruck, this year and previously. Dave Ashbrook and Ashley Marshall have been great, she said. They have provided us with rooms and meals and done so much. For more information about the ruck, visit http:// www.facebook.com/pages/ Air-Commando-Ruckers/ 274979869218743?skwall.

By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com A drywood termite infestation in the Coombs Armory was treated last week. On Wednesday, April 2, Florida Pest Control of Gainesville draped the armory in green tarps and pumped 300 pounds of Vikane, a trade name for sulfuryl uoride gas, into the building to kill an infestation of drywood termites discovered in the building last year. By midmorning Friday, after 17 hours of fumigation, the tarps were down and the work was done. Chemicals valued at more than $5,000 for the drywood treatment and a ground treatment for subterranean termite treatment scheduled for the week ending April 11 were donated by Dow Chemical and Florida Pest Control. The cost of labor for the work will be about $22,000. The termite treatments are the beginning of Phase 1 of a $2.5 million plan to renovate the historic Armory as a convention center. Chris Powell, a spokesperson for Florida Pest Control, said the biggest problem encountered by the work crew was people walking through the area cordoned off for the placement of tarps. J.R. Sapp, owner of Florida Pest Control, was set to visit the Armory on Wednesday, April 9 to inspect the work, and has invited all the county commissioners for a photo with him at 11 a.m. in front of the Armory. Florida Pest Control and BASF, which donated the chemicals to treat both drywood and subterranean termites, are generating quite a bit of publicity about the tenting of the Armory so there might be media coverage over the next week.

You may not be aware or think that it will affect you, but the Social Security of ce in Gadsden County closed April 1. Gadsden County senior citizens will no longer have a place to resolve problems or even ask questions about their bene ts they worked for all their lives. Many of these citizens have no access to computers or are not familiar with them, and the small monthly checks they receive do not include travel expenses to go to facilities 30 miles away. Since Social Security is a federal program, shouldnt our congressman in Washington be taking the lead on this? Congressman Steve Southerland, according to his newsletter, authored a letter March 18 to U.S. Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn W. Colvin requesting a meeting regarding the closure of the Social Security Administration of ce in Quincy. A letter requesting a meeting! Was that some kind of April fools joke, or was it an intentional delay? Even if Mrs. Colvin received the letter and responded, it sometimes takes two weeks for a letter to reach a congressman due to the intense scrutiny by law enforcement. The Social Security of ce in Washington is not hard to nd. It is two blocks past K Street. Congressman Southerland should know where that is. A short walk, an email, or a phone call could have facilitated a meeting as soon as he heard about the proposed closing. It is much harder to reverse something after it is done than to negotiate to stop it beforehand. Maybe thats one reason it closed; the letter may still be in the mail. I suppose the announcement of his requesting a meeting with the SS Administrator does look good in Congressman Southerlands newsletter since he faces a very strong opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, in the election this November. To my knowledge, neither the occurrence nor the outcome of the meeting with Mrs. Colvin has been made public. It seems unlikely that a meeting with Congressman Southerland would be very productive anyway, since he follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. It would certainly upset billionaire coal and gas magnates like the Koch brothers who have made tremendous donations to Southerlands campaign. It was just announced by the Tampa Bay Times that in the next few weeks you will see yet another TV ad praising Southerland for his opposition to Obamacare. The ad, costing $150,000, is paid for by the billionaire Koch brothers funded AFP. They already spent $160,000 to air one in February, because Southerland is considered to be one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation. The ad says, he puts us rst, not special interests. Ironically, the ad itself is paid for by special interests. It is a good thing we have leaders on the local level like Gadsden County Commissioner Mrs. Brenda Holt, who is in the process of making Social Security services available at other locations and proposing other options on how the of ce can stay open and still save money. I am on Social Security and I appreciate the good work Mrs. Holt is doing. If our present Washington politician lets this happen in Mrs. Holts county it can happen in other counties throughout our district.Jim Clements Letter to the EDITORSpecial to The TimesIn recognition of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, AAA is warning drivers to avoid any activities that divert attention from the primary driving task. Any distractions could endanger a driver, passengers or others sharing the road, such as bicyclists or pedestrians. While weve made substantial progress in the past few years by raising awareness about risky driving behaviors, the simple fact is that distraction continues to be a signi cant contributing factor to deaths and injuries on our roadways, AAA Traf c Safety manager John Pecchio said. We all should take personal responsibility for focusing on driving rather than on dangerous distractions. Distractions are responsible for vehicle crashes leading to more than 3,000 deaths and 387,000 injuries in 2011, according to the most recent data provided by the National Highway Traf c Safety Administration. Driving distractions come in all forms. A few examples are texting, using a handheld or hands-free cellphone, conversing with passengers, eating or drinking, using a navigation system and personal grooming. The use of electronic devices are among the most well-known and common sources of distraction for drivers. Text messaging behind the wheel is one of the riskiest things a driver can do as it involves manual, visual, and mental distraction simultaneously. Any kind of cell phone use can be risky. There is a public misperception that using a hands-free cell phone reduces risk but research states otherwise. The AAA Foundation for Traf c Safety completed groundbreaking research last year nding that mental distraction by itself dangerously affects drivers behind the wheel, said Pecchio. The research showed that hands-free features, increasingly common in new vehicles, are actually among the most mentally distracting. Just because a drivers eyes are on the road and hands are on the wheel does not mean that they are safely focusing on driving. Established by AAA in 1947, the AAA Foundation for Traf c Safety, a 501(c)(3) not-for-pro t, publicly supported charitable educational and research organization, is dedicated to saving lives and reducing injuries on our roads. The foundation, whose mission is to prevent crashes and save lives through research and education about traf c safety, has funded more than 200 research projects designed to discover the causes of traf c crashes, prevent them, and minimize injuries when they do occur. Visit www. aaafoundation.org for more information on this and other research. The Auto Club Group is the second largest AAA club in North America. ACG and its af liates provide membership, travel, insurance and nancial services offerings to about 8.8 million members across 11 states and two U.S. territories, including Florida. TOP 10 TIPS TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS WHILE DRIVING10. Fully focus on driving and do not let anything divert your attention. Actively scan the road, use your mirrors and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists. 9. Store loose gear, possessions and other distractions that could roll around in the car, so you do not feel tempted to reach for them on the oor or the seat. 8. Make adjustments before your drive. Address vehicle systems like your GPS, seats, mirrors, climate controls and sound systems before hitting the road. Decide on your route and check traf c conditions ahead of time. 7. Finish dressing and personal grooming at home before you get on the road. 6. Snack smart. If possible, eat meals or snacks before or after your trip, not while driving. On the road, avoid messy foods that can be dif cult to manage. 5. Secure children and pets before getting underway. If they need your attention, pull off the road safely to care for them. Reaching into the backseat can cause you to lose control of the vehicle. 4. Dont use cell phones while driving handheld or hands-free except in absolute emergencies. Never use text messaging, email functions, video games or the Internet with a wireless device, including those built into the vehicle, while driving. 3. If you have passengers, enlist their help so you can focus safely on driving. 2. If another activity demands your attention, instead of trying to attempt it while driving, pull off the road and stop your vehicle in a safe place. To avoid temptation, power down or stow devices before heading out. 1. As a general rule, if you cannot devote your full attention to driving because of some other activity, its a distraction. Take care of it before or after your trip, not while behind the wheel.Avoid distractions while behind the wheelSoutherland should ght SS of ce closureBy AUGUSTA R. WESTSpecial to The Times During the age of steamboating on the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint rivers, more than 200 vessels plied these waters, transporting passengers, mail, merchandise, produce, cotton, farm supplies, and more. This era lasted from about the 1830s to the 1920s. One well-known paddlewheeler was the John W. Callahan. While many of the steamboats used here were built in other places, this sternwheeler was built by Apalachicola steamboat builder Sam Johnson. The boats namesake, John W. Callahan, was a prominent businessman operating in Bainbridge, a southwest Georgia city on the Flint River. Beginning in the early 1900s, he used riverboats to ship farm products such as cotton, hay, watermelons and corn. These vessels ran three times a week between Bainbridge and Apalachicola. Callahan enlisted Sam Johnson to build the steamboat which would bear his name in 1907. The vessel would incorporate salvaged machinery from the sunken steamboat Gertrude into a fully modern vessel offering rst class passenger and freight service. The new paddlewheeler was 153 feet long, 34.6 feet wide, and weighed just over 200 tons. Though not the largest steamboat on the river (some were over 200 feet long), this vessel would carry large quantities of merchandise and guano fertilizer, as well as naval stores from the areas turpentine industry. Such cargo was carried on the lower deck, while the upper level contained cabins and a dining room to accommodate passengers heading to Apalachicola and sherman heading to the popular Dead Lakes. Tickets on the steamer included meals and berths. With electric lights and hot baths, the vessel was quite popular with travelers. Like all paddlewheelers of the day, the Callahan made regular stops at the landings along the rivers, picking up and off-loading passengers, mail, and cargo at Bainbridge, River Junction, Blountstown, Bristol, Iola, Estiffanulga, Wewahitchka and Apalachicola. Before rail lines and roads connected these destinations, the river was the highway of travel and trade. The trip from Bainbridge to Apalachicola took just under 24 hours. It departed Bainbridge twice a week, on Sundays and Thursdays at 10 a.m., and arrived in Apalachicola on Mondays and Fridays at 8 a.m. One of the Callahans captains for a time was Billy Russell, who later died in the 1913 sinking of the Tarpon near Panama City. The Tarpon connected passengers between Apalachicola and other destinations on the gulf. The John W. Callahan nally sank in March of 1923, about 40 miles north of Apalachicola. Since such vessels represented a signi cant investment, they were hauled out and repaired whenever possible. But the Callahan, resting in 45 feet of fast moving water, reportedly still rests on the bottom of the river in its watery grave. Apalachicola Maritime Museum founder George Floyds grandfather, Albert Floyd, was a boiler engineer on the Callahan. It was on this vessel that he met his future wife, Margaret Thomas, in 1917. She was travelling to visit her sister. Alberts father, Theodore Archibald Floyd, was the pilot at the time. The return of a paddlewheeler to the Apalachicola River is thus part of a long family tradition. Augusta R. West is the director of research and education at the Apalachicola Maritime Museum.John W.

Lee Bentley, III has announced Taylor Blake Martin, 22, Alabama, and Seth Andrew Stephenson, 22, Rockledge, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gregory J. Kelly March 6 to taking (harassing) an endangered species. Each faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $50,000 ne. A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled. According to court d ocuments,  the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service became aware of a video posted on Facebook that showed one individual luring two manatees to a dock with a water hose, and another individual jumping off of a boat dock, cannonballing an adult manatee and a calf. Further investigation revealed that Martin was the individual who cannonballed on top of the manatees. Stephenson was identied as the one who lured the manatees to the dock with the water hose. The video shows Martin landing on the back of the adult manatee as the manatees swim away. Stephenson then begins to use the water hose in an attempt to lure the m anatees back as the video ends.  After the video was posted on Facebook, several people commented on it. In response to a post that expressed displeasure with Martins actions, Martin responded, hahahain my debue [sic] as tayla the manatee slayaim f ready to cannonball on every manatee living yewwww. This case demonstrates our resolve to address the illegal harassment of manatees, as well as the enforcement of speed zones, and other more serious forms of take which result in the death or injury of Floridas endangered manatees, said Special Agent in Charge Luis Santiago, Southeast Region, Ofce of Law Enforcement, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This case was investigated by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn P. Napier. Tapas trivia back to 7 p.m.By popular demand, trivia night at the Tapas Bar in Apalachicola will start at 7 p.m. beginning Tuesday, April 8. The game had been moved to 8 p.m. March 18 but reduced attendance and feedback from players led organizers to return to the earlier time. Arrest RREPORt Trepaired before the road is resurfaced so the new road will not have to be cut later to make repairs. Commissioner William Massey, who works with the Carrabelle Road Department, agreed. You want to x it now, he said. Commissioner Smokey Parrish, whose district includes Bluff Road residents, said he is hoping for a 75/25 percent matching grant from the DOT. He said in that case, he could take $25,000 for the match from his road maintenance funds. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked why damage to the culvert had not been discovered during preliminary inspections before the paving began. It wasnt until we had heavy construction trafc on the road that the collapse started, Pierce said. Pierce said he considered the condition of the culvert to be an emergency situation. Commissioners voted unanimously to allow Pierce to negotiate with contractor C.W. Roberts for immediate repairs should the culvert begin to collapse. Commissioner Noah Lockley said the problem is causing further delays to the resurfacing of Bluff Road. Commissioners questioned the timeline for the project at a meeting earlier this year. Pierce told them then that bad weather had delayed work on the road. Pierce said investigation into available funds for the repair work is ongoing. Parrish said whether or not the culvert collapses, there will be delays associated with the repair work, and one lane of Bluff Road would have to be closed for an unknown period of time during repairs. He asked everyone to be patient. LOISLOIS SS WOBO OBO DA | The TimesThe culvert directly in front of Pendletons on Bluff Road is in danger of collapse. CULVERT from page A1

LocalA6 | The Times Thursday, April 10, 2014Bubbas sister, Heather Maxwell, anchored a benet Monday in Eastpoint that will help the family defray the cost of Wednesdays funeral at the Pentecostal Holiness Church in Apalachicola. Burial was to follow in Magnolia Cemetery, next to Bubbas brother, Darin Wallace, who died as an infant.We want justice for our young manDressed in civilian clothes, Mock came in person at the outset of the benet and spoke at length in his sports utility vehicle with Buddy Wayne Butler. The sheriff shared with Bubbas grandfather the conclusions reached by him and the investigators, a team led by Detectives Brett Johnson and Duane Cook. Afterward, Butler said he was not pleased with Mocks nding, just three days after the shooting, that there would be no arrest. He was telling me it was justied by him being in the yard, Butler said. I told him I wasnt happy with it. I dont like it. I dont think anybody has the right to kill somebody because theyre in your yard, unless they threaten you. Just to shoot somebody in your yard, I dont think thats justied, unless his life was threatened by him. I told the sheriff I dont like the way things are turning out. We want justice for our young man. My grandson cant tell his story because hes not around. At an interview Tuesday morning, conducted with Johnson, Mock stressed that his decision does not mean the investigation is over. People think were done with this case. Thats not the case, the sheriff said. The case is not closed by any means. In a written release dated April 7, the sheriffs ofce summarized its report of the investigation, and Mock and Johnson lled in details during the interview as they recounted what happened. Right now we feel like we do, Mock said, when asked whether investigators had a clear idea of what happened that night. Page said he was alerted by the sound of someone entering the gate of the chain link fence that surrounds the yard. He had a window open at the home. He heard some noise and looked out and seen him and went to the front door, Mock said. Page told investigators he asked what Fasbenner was doing on his property but received no verbal response. You need help or something? Page recalled saying. He also told investigators he went back into the residence to retrieve a .22caliber rie and stepped out on the porch to confront Fasbenner. Page told investigators he knew Fasbenner when they were young boys, but hadnt seen him in eight years and did not recognize him during the confrontation. Page said Fasbenner started toward him and he continued in Pages direction despite what the release termed several verbal commands from the homeowner. He red a warning shot at his feet, Johnson said. (Fasbenner) stopped for a second, and smiled at Mr. Page. He tried to reach for the gun, and at the second step of the porch, after Mr. Page backed up half a step, and when he reached for the gun, the homeowner red the lethal shot. He ran inside, put the gun down in the house and asked his mother to call 911, the detective said. The Pages said they ran outside with paper towels to apply pressure to the wound, but stopped when police and emergency medical personnel arrived on the scene.No blood test given to shooterMock said Capt. Brad Segree was on the scene with the team of ofcers. The sheriff said Page was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car, and later questioned by Johnson as part of an investigation that included speaking separately with Mrs. Page as well as neighbors. Page was released later that night and was not asked to submit to a blood draw, Johnson said. Toxicology tests on Fasbenners blood were conducted as part of the Leon County medical examiners post-mortem examination in Tallahassee. Those results are expected in the next six to seven weeks. The detective said Mrs. Page could hear her son talking but had not witnessed the shooting. He said there were no eyewitnesses, although several neighbors said they heard the two shots, and described them as being about 10 to 15 seconds apart. Johnson said investigators have not recovered the bullet Page said he red as a warning shot. No weapon or other criminal implement was found on Fasbenner. Johnson said investigators looked into Pages background, which includes a misdemeanor conviction for which he is on county probation, but no felony convictions that would bar him from possessing a rearm. The detective said Page told him he wrote a letter to Fasbenners family, but whether it was sent was unclear. He was crying, Johnson said. Hes remorseful, very remorseful. Hes still upset about that. Mock said he must act based on the law, not his personal thought or feelings, and that the law protects the right of Page to act as he did. He had a right to defend his home, Mr. Page did. If they feel threatened or theyre scared, they have the right, the sheriff said. Its a terrible situation. Its a tough time. I feel like what we have right now is that he was defending his home. Mock and Johnson both said the homes isolated location, and the time of night, gured into investigators analysis of the circumstances surrounding the situation. Its all based on what Mr. Page believes, Johnson said. He was in fear of his life.Stand Your Ground potentially pertinentMock said he could not answer why Page did not call 911 when he rst noticed Fasbenner on the property, and after he was non-verbal to Page. It was absolutely a time for law enforcement, the sheriff said. Theres no way to know why, only he (Page) knows that. That would be a question he would have to answer. Mock said investigators remained in contact with Assistant State Attorney Jarred Patterson throughout their work, and in the written release wrote both came to the conclusion that there would be no charges led based on the information at this time. Patterson said he spoke with State Attorney Willie Meggs on Friday morning to inform him about the shooting. Patterson said he planned to meet Wednesday with Mock to go over his ndings, and at that time, the prosecutors ofce would review the case to determine whether or not to take any further action in the case. That is not a decision I would make unilaterally without discussing it with Mr. Meggs, Patterson said Tuesday afternoon. The case is still ongoing; thats where we are. Our (the state attorneys ofces) decision has not been made. That hasnt been determined yet, as far as were concerned. Patterson said Floridas Stand Your Ground laws are potentially pertinent to the case, but he declined to elaborate on the matter until his ofce has had to review the sheriffs ndings. Mock said investigators are also probing Fasbenners whereabouts and prior behavior that evening. The family believes Fasbenner might have gotten lost while walking back to his grandparents house at 47 Pine Ave.He was quiet, and led by exampleAt Mondays benet, Fasbenners grandmother recounted a teeny, scrawny little thing who had grown into a tall, strong young man, who had a happy childhood and never gave his grandparents the least bit of trouble. Chris Granger, who played linebacker alongside Fasbenner during his high school years and ran as a fullback through holes punched by the hard-hitting lineman, said he was a good guy to play with, for sure. He was quiet, and kind of led by example. After graduation, Fasbenner had made plans to attend Tallahassee Community College but lacked the funds and went to work as cook at That Place on 319, a restaurant owned by Mike Keller in Crawfordville. It was while there that he met the love of his life, Brittany Lewis, a 2012 Wakulla High School grad, and the two made plans to marry. Fasbenners longterm plans were to become a correctional ofcer. His short-term plans were to attend Saturday evenings prom with his cousin, Franklin County High School junior Gracyn Butler, who were like brother and sister. On the Wednesday before the shooting, he had rented his tuxedo, and on Friday he was to pick it up.

The signs advertising the annual Tonyas Hope fundraiser were along U.S. 98 between Lanark Village and Carrabelle. Organizers believe someone might have mistakenly collected the signs and ask that they be returned to Camp Gordon Johnston Legion Post 82 on Oak Street in Lanark Village. Despite the missing signs, the eighth annual Tonyas Hope Cancer Foundation fundraiser came off without a hitch on Saturday, April 5. According to Kathy Ingersoll a spokesperson for the event, 15 Boston butts and 75 barbecue dinners were served. There was also a yard sale, raf e and auction. Live entertainment was provided by Debi Jordan and Evelyn McAnally. Tonyas Hope was founded by the members of Post 82 after Tonya Bridges of Lanark was diagnosed with cancer. It is the mission of Tonyas Hope to relieve some of the nancial stress of everyday expenses such as gasoline, groceries, utilities, rent, etc. while being treated for cancer. Over the years, it has assisted about 60 cancer patients with expenses. The rst year was for Tonya, but since then, we have reached out to as many members of the community as possible, Ingersoll said. To qualify, you need to be being treated for cancer with radiation, chemo or surgery, and a resident of Franklin County.

Migrating songbirds, including warblers, tanagers, buntings, veeries and thrushes, stop in our forests during their long trek from wintering grounds in South America to breeding grounds farther north. They y hundreds of miles across the Gulfs open waters and stop to rest and refuel at the rst land they see. Most of these birds are small, weighing between and 1 ounce, and use up all of their stored fat reserves during the trek. Finding good habitat where they can nd quality food and shelter to replenish their stores before the next leg of their journey is crucial to their annual passage. These birds will only stay a few days to a few weeks. Researchers from NOAAs Environmental Cooperative Science Center are trying to determine exactly how the barrier islands speci cally are being utilized by these neotropical migrants. Dr. Chris Heckscher, Dr. Lori Lester and graduate students Mariamar Gutierrez-Ramirez and Alan Kneidel from Delaware State University are using the Unit 4 area of St. George Island as their study site. The group sets out mist nets during spring migration, which catch birds without injuring them. Each bird is carefully logged, banded and examined for physical condition before it is released. The group hopes this information can reveal how these bird groups use barrier island systems and how changes to these ecosystems over time might in turn affect the animals that utilize them. From April to May, they will blog about this years eld season at http://forgottencoastorida.blogspot.com. Megan Lamb is coordinator of ECSC research programs and services at the Apalachicola NERR.

On Saturday, April 5, about 30 kayakers gathered to begin working out the kinks in an upcoming event they hope will be a record breaker. The paddlers launched from Ten-Foot Hole and the Apalachicola Maritime Museum and traveled north and across the channel on a fog-drenched morning to form a kayak raft of the type specied by the Guinness Book of World Records. To qualify, each boat must be in contact with at least one other boat, and the entire group must be separated from the shore for at least ve minutes. When the raft was formed, the boaters raised their paddles in salute and posed for photos. The get-together was a dress rehearsal for something organizers hope will be much bigger. On May 16-17, they hope to set a new Guinness world record for the largest oat gathering of kayaks. The current Guinness world record was set Sept. 24, 2011, when 1,902 kayaks and canoes assembled on Fourth Lake in Inlet, N.Y., at the event One Square Mile of Hope. It was sponsored by the Central Adirondack Paddlers Society to raise money to bene t the Susan G. Komen Foundation. On May 17, the paddle club here will attempt to assemble more than 2,100 kayaks to beat that record. Kayaks will gather and be linked by boaters arm-in-arm or paddle-topaddle and assembled for 30 seconds. Proceeds from Paddle Jam, as the event has been dubbed, will bene t at risk children, youth and families in need through the outreach ministries of the Apalachicola St. George Island Cooperative Parish. Organizers of Paddle Jam are Rev. Themo Patriotis of the Cooperative Parish, Danny Itzkovitz, Beverly Hewitt, Palmer Philyaw, Bud Hayes, Missy Miller and Sam Fortunas. According to their press release, Paddle Jam is a festival celebrating the Forgotten Coast through paddle sports, music and food. Paddle Jam is a uid festival with events happening at various locations in Apalachicola and St. George Island. If you love2paddle we invite you to join with us and paddle2love as we help those in need. For more information, call 927-3259. Paddle Jam offers something for everyone and is for people who are passionate about life on the Forgotten Coast.Time to get the lawn in shapeBy LES HARRISONSpecial to the Times Spring is of cially here, so this means it is time to get the lawn in shape for another growing season in Franklin County. The rst step is to develop an action plan which sets the path to achieving turf success. A good starting point is mowing the lawn to get any leaves removed and trim any weeds which have emerged. Empty the bagged clipping in a compost pile for later use. Shaded areas under trees must be treated differently since grass will not grow in those areas. Just leave the natural tree leaf mulch there and add additional mulch as needed. If there are marginally shaded areas where turf is preferred, spring is a good time to plant some grass plugs. All southern turf grasses prefer full sun, but a few St. Augustine cultivars such as Seville, Delmar, and Captiva will tolerate some shade. Trying some plugs of Seville St. Augustine is a low-cost way of determining if there is enough sunlight to grow grass. The plugs are available at local garden centers and hardware stores. If the plugs dont take hold and spread, then there is not enough sunlight. Use groundcovers, mulches, or other plantings in these shaded areas. Before mowing, use a ruler to set the cutting level. Try to never remove more than one-third the length of the grass blade at any one mowing. Sharpen the mower blades after every four to eight hours of mowing so a ragged cut is avoided. Maintain St. Augustine grass at about three inches tall and centipede at about one and one-half inches. Most of the weeds currently in Franklin County lawns are winter annuals. They are currently owering and will soon go to seed, then die as the weather gets hotter. It is dif cult to kill these winter annuals at this mature stage, so applying herbicide now is pointless. The best option is to keep the weeds mowed so they do not produce as many seed and reemerge next year. Also, apply a pre-emergent herbicide in October 2014 to minimize 2015s spring weeds. Now is the time to put out a preemergent herbicide for most of the summer weeds. The easiest way to apply this herbicide is with a weed-and-feed fertilizer. Select a weed-and-feed which has the appropriate fertilizer analysis. Many heavily advertised national brands do not necessarily have the right blend of fertilizer nutrients. Local nurseries, though, may have fertilizers blended and packaged which are tailored for Franklin County soil conditions. Unless a soil test indicates a need for phosphorus, the best fertilizers to use on lawns will be missing this nutrient. The commonly available 15-0-15 fertilizers should also have half of the nitrogen (7.5%) in a slow-release form. Many local retailers have these 15-015 fertilizers with and without herbicide. Generally speaking apply the 15-0-15 fertilizer without herbicide at the rate of six and a half pounds of fertilizer per 1,000 square feet of lawn. Follow the label directions if using the 15-0-15 fertilizer with herbicide. Lightly water the fertilizer in with about onequarter inch of water after applying it. If the soil is too compacted, too wet, too dry, or has nematodes, certain weeds may grow better in those conditions than does your lawn grass. Take the time to identify why the grass is not growing well. Rain has provided enough water so far this spring, but this could change at any moment. However, do not water unless it is needed. Only water when about thirty percent of the lawn wilts, turning dull grayish color as the leaf blades roll inward. At that time water deeply, applying about one-half inch of water as measured in cans placed in the sprinkler pattern.

Sheriff Mike Mock on Monday morning informed relatives of his conclusion that Ronald Joseph Page, 24, would not be charged in the April 3 shooting death of Charles Thomas Wayne Bubba Fasbenner Jr. The 20-year-old had entered Pages yard at 277 Timothy Simmons Road minutes before 9:45 p.m., when Pages mother, JoAnna Page, called 911 to alert them that her son had shot a man. Minutes later, Apalachicola Sgt. Wesley Creamer and Of cer Ginger Creamer arrived on the cul-de-sac, around a secluded curve off 25th Street, to nd Fasbenner dying from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Emergency medical personnel did not transport the young man to the hospital, as he had died despite their frantic effort to apply CPR. The bewildering shock that a well-liked young man, a towering lineman on the Seahawk football team, regarded as a good friend by his classmates in the Franklin County High School Class of 2012, was dead from what so far appears to have been a tragic series of miscommunications spread quickly throughout the county like torrential rain.

The commission got the easy stuff out of the way early in the meeting, unanimously approving an ordinance to allow golf carts to travel streets at night provided they meet state requirements for travel in darkness. Golf carts will be able to operate from sunset to sunrise, provided they possess brake lights, turn signals and integrated headlights, which are those connected to the vehicle. They also must have a windshield to operate during the hours of darkness, but unlike the other items, a windshield is currently required for daylight operation. Funds sought to avert Bluff Road culvert collapse By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com County commissioners voted last week to take emergency measures if the condition of a damaged culvert worsens. At the April 1 meeting, County Planner Alan Pierce told commissioners a large culvert under Bluff Road has been found to have serious damage. During a recent inspection related to the resurfacing of Bluff Road, the culvert was found to be completely corroded on the underside. Pierce said the sides of the culvert are bowing in, and the structure could collapse during a heavy rain event. He said county consulting rm Preble Rish Engineering is reviewing options for repair with the Florida Department of Transportation, and the current elliptical culvert might be replaced with two 6-foot circular pipes. The culvert drains about 1,000 acres, 600 of which are on airport property. Pierce said he has inquired whether DOT funds for improving airport drainage could be used to contribute to the cost of repair. Pierce said the situation is exacerbated by the resurfacing of Bluff Road that is underway.

Thursday, April 10, 2014 APALACHICOLA ANTIQUE & CLASSIC BOAT SHOW April 19, 2014 S a l t y F l o r i d a c o m T our ist D ev elopmen t C ouncil Antique Boat Displays,Boat Building Demonstrations, Tours CONCER T SERIES Apalachicola Area Historical Society Presents Coupon Expir es: 4-30-14 CODE: AP00 Though the golf cart ordinance was approved without discussion, the rest of the meeting included a spirited back-and-forth regarding other trafc control measures. On the agenda was a proposal to transform the intersections of Commerce Street and Avenue D, Commerce Street and Avenue E and 11th Street and Avenue F from two-way to four-way stops. City Administrator Betty Taylor-Webb said businesses contacted downtown did not object to the four-way stops and that she planned to speak with John Croom regarding the Avenue F intersection, as well as about Crooms Transportation ve hicles that appear to be an obstruction in the yard. Commissioner Brenda Ash said she has heard questions raised by residents as to whether more stop signs are needed. The city is full of stop signs; you might as well get on a bicycle, she said. Is it ac tually necessary? Is it serving the purpose we set it up for? Police ofcer Pam Lewis said most people think theyre a nuisance, but Cla rice Powell, a resident who long has asked for speed bumps and other trafc control measures in her neighborhood and else where, objected. We hear that people are tired of people speeding up and down the streets, Powell said. Harrison Jones rose to object to speed bumps, which he said are tearing up his vehicles. I had to put in $1,800, I had to replace my struts, for the same speed bumps in front of my house, he said. Every time you ride up on those things, youre about to tear your car apart. They have been a nuisance to me, and I have grandchildren. We need to watch our children. I think we have too many stop signs. Theres just so many, Im stopping, going, stopping, going. Give us just one street to breeze through. Jerry Weber, who resides with Pow ell on Frederick Humphries Street, next to the ofces of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, spoke in strong support of trafc control. This is not about roads, this is not about speeding, this is not about speed bumps, this is not about stop signs, he said. This is all about respect for our neighborhoods. I think youre nuts to pull the speed bumps out. Weber shared photos with com missioners of what he said were ticketable offenses. We dont put this in just because we like speed bumps. We have a problem in this community, he said. Somebodys going to get killed. Im putting you on no tice right now. It is disrespect in our com munities. We have a lot of disrespect from a lot of our other neighborhoods. Weber said he has had to clear away dogs hit by cars. How do you kill a dog in a neighborhood with a 20 mph speed lim it? he said. These are hit-and-runs. They dont stop; we see it happen. The dont-want-as dont want to abide by the rules in our neighborhood, he said. They think its an old dirt road. Its up to you all to say were taking the bull by the horn. Taylor-Webb said she would look more closely at whether the city could erect removable posts or chain closed the gate that enters into the parking lot of the FDO ACS building. She said Fire Chief George Watkins has objected to the closure, that both the gate and fence are owned by the state and that it is not clear whether the city can block entrance to a state agency. County Commissioner Noah Lockley spoke in favor of creating one through street without stop signs that would en able swifter passage by motorists. We need a breakthrough street on the Hill, he said. We usually we get a request from somebody who sits in the neighborhood, Johnson said. If those stop signs are there or those speed bumps are there, somebody has asked for that. We dont ar bitrarily put them there. Carol Bareld said instead of creating more four-way stops, Apalachicola police ofcers need to write more trafc tickets. If they pay a ticket, that will slow them down enough, she said. The commission agreed to direct the issue to the citys Community Pride com mittee, a public forum to discuss matters that pertain to the quality of life in the city.

Local The Times | A3 Thursday, April 10, 2014 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com A group of American heroes trekked across Franklin County last week raising money to aid the families of those who give all for their country. For the third consecutive year, members of the Air Commando Ruck walked between McDill Air Force Base in Tampa, and Hurlburt Field in Mary Esther. This year, 14 men and women two teams of three and two teams of four donned 40-pound rucksacks for the 450-mile march. The journey began on March 30 and ended April 4. The teams rotate; each team does 12 miles. The goal of $30,000 was reached. According to www.aorcommando.org, the website for the Air Commando Association, The ruck was originally created to honor the men that paid the ultimate sacri ce that night, but since then, we have expanded the march to include all the members that have fallen due to combat or training exercises. Team 1 crossed the John Gorrie Bridge on April 2, but stopped for an interview. This was the friendliest stretch weve gone through on the ruck, said spokesperson Meagan Freeman. Everyone we passed at least waved. Some people stopped to talk and some even turned around and came back to see what was going on. She praised the Port Inn in Port St. Joe for its help with the ruck, this year and previously. Dave Ashbrook and Ashley Marshall have been great, she said. They have provided us with rooms and meals and done so much. For more information about the ruck, visit http:// www.facebook.com/pages/ Air-Commando-Ruckers/ 274979869218743?skwall.

By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com A drywood termite infestation in the Coombs Armory was treated last week. On Wednesday, April 2, Florida Pest Control of Gainesville draped the armory in green tarps and pumped 300 pounds of Vikane, a trade name for sulfuryl uoride gas, into the building to kill an infestation of drywood termites discovered in the building last year. By midmorning Friday, after 17 hours of fumigation, the tarps were down and the work was done. Chemicals valued at more than $5,000 for the drywood treatment and a ground treatment for subterranean termite treatment scheduled for the week ending April 11 were donated by Dow Chemical and Florida Pest Control. The cost of labor for the work will be about $22,000. The termite treatments are the beginning of Phase 1 of a $2.5 million plan to renovate the historic Armory as a convention center. Chris Powell, a spokesperson for Florida Pest Control, said the biggest problem encountered by the work crew was people walking through the area cordoned off for the placement of tarps. J.R. Sapp, owner of Florida Pest Control, was set to visit the Armory on Wednesday, April 9 to inspect the work, and has invited all the county commissioners for a photo with him at 11 a.m. in front of the Armory. Florida Pest Control and BASF, which donated the chemicals to treat both drywood and subterranean termites, are generating quite a bit of publicity about the tenting of the Armory so there might be media coverage over the next week.

You may not be aware or think that it will affect you, but the Social Security of ce in Gadsden County closed April 1. Gadsden County senior citizens will no longer have a place to resolve problems or even ask questions about their bene ts they worked for all their lives. Many of these citizens have no access to computers or are not familiar with them, and the small monthly checks they receive do not include travel expenses to go to facilities 30 miles away. Since Social Security is a federal program, shouldnt our congressman in Washington be taking the lead on this? Congressman Steve Southerland, according to his newsletter, authored a letter March 18 to U.S. Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn W. Colvin requesting a meeting regarding the closure of the Social Security Administration of ce in Quincy. A letter requesting a meeting! Was that some kind of April fools joke, or was it an intentional delay? Even if Mrs. Colvin received the letter and responded, it sometimes takes two weeks for a letter to reach a congressman due to the intense scrutiny by law enforcement. The Social Security of ce in Washington is not hard to nd. It is two blocks past K Street. Congressman Southerland should know where that is. A short walk, an email, or a phone call could have facilitated a meeting as soon as he heard about the proposed closing. It is much harder to reverse something after it is done than to negotiate to stop it beforehand. Maybe thats one reason it closed; the letter may still be in the mail. I suppose the announcement of his requesting a meeting with the SS Administrator does look good in Congressman Southerlands newsletter since he faces a very strong opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, in the election this November. To my knowledge, neither the occurrence nor the outcome of the meeting with Mrs. Colvin has been made public. It seems unlikely that a meeting with Congressman Southerland would be very productive anyway, since he follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. It would certainly upset billionaire coal and gas magnates like the Koch brothers who have made tremendous donations to Southerlands campaign. It was just announced by the Tampa Bay Times that in the next few weeks you will see yet another TV ad praising Southerland for his opposition to Obamacare. The ad, costing $150,000, is paid for by the billionaire Koch brothers funded AFP.

If our present Washington politician lets this happen in Mrs. Holts county it can happen in other counties throughout our district. Jim Clements Letter to the EDITOR Special to The Times In recognition of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, AAA is warning drivers to avoid any activities that divert attention from the primary driving task. Any distractions could endanger a driver, passengers or others sharing the road, such as bicyclists or pedestrians. While weve made substantial progress in the past few years by raising awareness about risky driving behaviors, the simple fact is that distraction continues to be a signi cant contributing factor to deaths and injuries on our roadways, AAA Traf c Safety manager John Pecchio said. We all should take personal responsibility for focusing on driving rather than on dangerous distractions. Distractions are responsible for vehicle crashes leading to more than 3,000 deaths and 387,000 injuries in 2011, according to the most recent data provided by the National Highway Traf c Safety Administration. Driving distractions come in all forms. A few examples are texting, using a handheld or hands-free cellphone, conversing with passengers, eating or drinking, using a navigation system and personal grooming. The use of electronic devices are among the most well-known and common sources of distraction for drivers. Text messaging behind the wheel is one of the riskiest things a driver can do as it involves manual, visual, and mental distraction simultaneously. Any kind of cell phone use can be risky. There is a public misperception that using a hands-free cell phone reduces risk but research states otherwise. The AAA Foundation for Traf c Safety completed groundbreaking research last year nding that mental distraction by itself dangerously affects drivers behind the wheel, said Pecchio. The research showed that hands-free features, increasingly common in new vehicles, are actually among the most mentally distracting. Just because a drivers eyes are on the road and hands are on the wheel does not mean that they are safely focusing on driving. Established by AAA in 1947, the AAA Foundation for Traf c Safety, a 501(c)(3) not-for-pro t, publicly supported charitable educational and research organization, is dedicated to saving lives and reducing injuries on our roads. The foundation, whose mission is to prevent crashes and save lives through research and education about traf c safety, has funded more than 200 research projects designed to discover the causes of traf c crashes, prevent them, and minimize injuries when they do occur. Visit www. aaafoundation.org for more information on this and other research. The Auto Club Group is the second largest AAA club in North America. ACG and its af liates provide membership, travel, insurance and nancial services offerings to about 8.8 million members across 11 states and two U.S. territories, including Florida. TOP 10 TIPS TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS WHILE DRIVING 10. Fully focus on driving and do not let anything divert your attention. Actively scan the road, use your mirrors and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists. 9. Store loose gear, possessions and other distractions that could roll around in the car, so you do not feel tempted to reach for them on the oor or the seat. 8. Make adjustments before your drive. Address vehicle systems like your GPS, seats, mirrors, climate controls and sound systems before hitting the road. Decide on your route and check traf c conditions ahead of time. 7. Finish dressing and personal grooming at home before you get on the road. 6. Snack smart. If possible, eat meals or snacks before or after your trip, not while driving. On the road, avoid messy foods that can be dif cult to manage. 5. Secure children and pets before getting underway. If they need your attention, pull off the road safely to care for them. Reaching into the backseat can cause you to lose control of the vehicle. 4. Dont use cell phones while driving handheld or hands-free except in absolute emergencies. Never use text messaging, email functions, video games or the Internet with a wireless device, including those built into the vehicle, while driving. 3. If you have passengers, enlist their help so you can focus safely on driving. 2. If another activity demands your attention, instead of trying to attempt it while driving, pull off the road and stop your vehicle in a safe place. To avoid temptation, power down or stow devices before heading out. 1. As a general rule, if you cannot devote your full attention to driving because of some other activity, its a distraction. Take care of it before or after your trip, not while behind the wheel. Avoid distractions while behind the wheel Southerland should ght SS of ce closure By AUGUSTA R. WEST Special to The Times During the age of steamboating on the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint rivers, more than 200 vessels plied these waters, transporting passengers, mail, merchandise, produce, cotton, farm supplies, and more. This era lasted from about the 1830s to the 1920s. One well-known paddlewheeler was the John W. Callahan. While many of the steamboats used here were built in other places, this sternwheeler was built by Apalachicola steamboat builder Sam Johnson. The boats namesake, John W. Callahan, was a prominent businessman operating in Bainbridge, a southwest Georgia city on the Flint River. Beginning in the early 1900s, he used riverboats to ship farm products such as cotton, hay, watermelons and corn. These vessels ran three times a week between Bainbridge and Apalachicola. Callahan enlisted Sam Johnson to build the steamboat which would bear his name in 1907. The vessel would incorporate salvaged machinery from the sunken steamboat Gertrude into a fully modern vessel offering rst class passenger and freight service. The new paddlewheeler was 153 feet long, 34.6 feet wide, and weighed just over 200 tons. Though not the largest steamboat on the river (some were over 200 feet long), this vessel would carry large quantities of merchandise and guano fertilizer, as well as naval stores from the areas turpentine industry. Such cargo was carried on the lower deck, while the upper level contained cabins and a dining room to accommodate passengers heading to Apalachicola and sherman heading to the popular Dead Lakes. Tickets on the steamer included meals and berths. With electric lights and hot baths, the vessel was quite popular with travelers. Like all paddlewheelers of the day, the Callahan made regular stops at the landings along the rivers, picking up and off-loading passengers, mail, and cargo at Bainbridge, River Junction, Blountstown, Bristol, Iola, Estiffanulga, Wewahitchka and Apalachicola. Before rail lines and roads connected these destinations, the river was the highway of travel and trade. The trip from Bainbridge to Apalachicola took just under 24 hours. It departed Bainbridge twice a week, on Sundays and Thursdays at 10 a.m., and arrived in Apalachicola on Mondays and Fridays at 8 a.m. One of the Callahans captains for a time was Billy Russell, who later died in the 1913 sinking of the Tarpon near Panama City. The Tarpon connected passengers between Apalachicola and other destinations on the gulf. The John W. Callahan nally sank in March of 1923, about 40 miles north of Apalachicola. Since such vessels represented a signi cant investment, they were hauled out and repaired whenever possible. But the Callahan, resting in 45 feet of fast moving water, reportedly still rests on the bottom of the river in its watery grave. Apalachicola Maritime Museum founder George Floyds grandfather, Albert Floyd, was a boiler engineer on the Callahan. It was on this vessel that he met his future wife, Margaret Thomas, in 1917. She was travelling to visit her sister. Alberts father, Theodore Archibald Floyd, was the pilot at the time. The return of a paddlewheeler to the Apalachicola River is thus part of a long family tradition. Augusta R. West is the director of research and education at the Apalachicola Maritime Museum. John W. Callahan offered rst class service JOHN W.

Lee Bentley, III has announced Taylor Blake Martin, 22, Alabama, and Seth Andrew Stephenson, 22, Rockledge, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gregory J. Kelly March 6 to taking (harassing) an endangered species. Each faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $50,000 ne. A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled. According to court documents, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service became aware of a video posted on Facebook that showed one individual luring two manatees to a dock with a water hose, and another individual jumping off of a boat dock, cannonballing an adult manatee and a calf. Further investigation revealed that Martin was the individual who cannonballed on top of the manatees. Stephenson was identied as the one who lured the manatees to the dock with the water hose. The video shows Martin landing on the back of the adult manatee as the manatees swim away. Stephenson then begins to use the water hose in an attempt to lure the manatees back as the video ends. After the video was posted on Facebook, several people commented on it. In response to a post that expressed displeasure with Martins actions, Martin responded, hahahain my debue [sic] as tayla the manatee slayaim f ready to cannonball on every manatee living yewwww. This case demonstrates our resolve to address the illegal harassment of manatees, as well as the enforcement of speed zones, and other more serious forms of take which result in the death or injury of Floridas endangered manatees, said Special Agent in Charge Luis Santiago, Southeast Region, Ofce of Law Enforcement, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This case was investigated by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn P. Napier. Tapas trivia back to 7 p.m. By popular demand, trivia night at the Tapas Bar in Apalachicola will start at 7 p.m. beginning Tuesday, April 8. The game had been moved to 8 p.m. March 18 but reduced attendance and feedback from players led organizers to return to the earlier time. Arrest REPOR T repaired before the road is resurfaced so the new road will not have to be cut later to make repairs. Commissioner William Massey, who works with the Carrabelle Road Depart ment, agreed. You want to x it now, he said. Commissioner Smokey Parrish, whose district includes Bluff Road resi dents, said he is hoping for a 75/25 percent matching grant from the DOT. He said in that case, he could take $25,000 for the match from his road maintenance funds. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked why damage to the culvert had not been discovered during prelimi nary inspections before the paving began. It wasnt until we had heavy con struction trafc on the road that the collapse started, Pierce said. Pierce said he consid ered the condition of the culvert to be an emergency situation. Commissioners voted unanimously to allow Pierce to negotiate with contractor C.W. Roberts for immediate repairs should the culvert begin to collapse. Commissioner Noah Lockley said the problem is causing further delays to the resurfacing of Bluff Road. Commissioners ques tioned the timeline for the project at a meeting earlier this year. Pierce told them then that bad weather had delayed work on the road. Pierce said investigation into available funds for the repair work is ongoing. Parrish said whether or not the culvert collapses, there will be delays associ ated with the repair work, and one lane of Bluff Road would have to be closed for an unknown period of time during repairs. He asked everyone to be patient. LOIS S W OBO DA | The Times The culvert directly in front of Pendletons on Bluff Road is in danger of collapse. CULVERT from page A1

Local A6 | The Times Thursday, April 10, 2014 Bubbas sister, Heather Maxwell, anchored a bene t Monday in Eastpoint that will help the family defray the cost of Wednesdays funeral at the Pentecostal Holiness Church in Apala chicola. Burial was to fol low in Magnolia Cemetery, next to Bubbas brother, Darin Wallace, who died as an infant. We want justice for our young man Dressed in civilian clothes, Mock came in person at the outset of the benet and spoke at length in his sports utility vehicle with Buddy Wayne Butler. The sheriff shared with Bubbas grandfather the conclusions reached by him and the investigators, a team led by Detectives Brett Johnson and Duane Cook. Afterward, Butler said he was not pleased with Mocks nding, just three days after the shooting, that there would be no arrest. He was telling me it was justied by him being in the yard, Butler said. I told him I wasnt happy with it. I dont like it. I dont think anybody has the right to kill somebody be cause theyre in your yard, unless they threaten you. Just to shoot somebody in your yard, I dont think thats justied, unless his life was threatened by him. I told the sheriff I dont like the way things are turning out. We want jus tice for our young man. My grandson cant tell his story because hes not around. At an interview Tuesday morning, conducted with Johnson, Mock stressed that his decision does not mean the investigation is over. People think were done with this case. Thats not the case, the sher iff said. The case is not closed by any means. In a written release dat ed April 7, the sheriffs of ce summarized its report of the investigation, and Mock and Johnson lled in details during the in terview as they recounted what happened. Right now we feel like we do, Mock said, when asked whether investiga tors had a clear idea of what happened that night. Page said he was alert ed by the sound of some one entering the gate of the chain link fence that surrounds the yard. He had a window open at the home. He heard some noise and looked out and seen him and went to the front door, Mock said. Page told investigators he asked what Fasbenner was doing on his property but received no verbal re sponse. You need help or something? Page recalled saying. He also told investiga tors he went back into the residence to retrieve a .22caliber rie and stepped out on the porch to con front Fasbenner. Page told investigators he knew Fas benner when they were young boys, but hadnt seen him in eight years and did not recognize him during the confrontation. Page said Fasbenner started toward him and he continued in Pages di rection despite what the release termed several verbal commands from the homeowner. He red a warning shot at his feet, Johnson said. (Fasbenner) stopped for a second, and smiled at Mr. Page. He tried to reach for the gun, and at the second step of the porch, after Mr. Page backed up half a step, and when he reached for the gun, the homeowner red the lethal shot. He ran inside, put the gun down in the house and asked his mother to call 911, the detective said. The Pages said they ran outside with paper towels to apply pressure to the wound, but stopped when police and emergency medical personnel arrived on the scene. No blood test given to shooter Mock said Capt. Brad Segree was on the scene with the team of ofcers. The sheriff said Page was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car, and later ques tioned by Johnson as part of an investigation that in cluded speaking separate ly with Mrs. Page as well as neighbors. Page was re leased later that night and was not asked to submit to a blood draw, Johnson said. Toxicology tests on Fasbenners blood were conducted as part of the Leon County medical ex aminers post-mortem ex amination in Tallahassee. Those results are expect ed in the next six to seven weeks. The detective said Mrs. Page could hear her son talking but had not wit nessed the shooting. He said there were no eye witnesses, although sev eral neighbors said they heard the two shots, and described them as being about 10 to 15 seconds apart. Johnson said investiga tors have not recovered the bullet Page said he red as a warning shot. No weapon or other criminal implement was found on Fasbenner. Johnson said investi gators looked into Pages background, which in cludes a misdemeanor conviction for which he is on county probation, but no felony convictions that would bar him from pos sessing a rearm. The detective said Page told him he wrote a letter to Fasbenners family, but whether it was sent was unclear. He was crying, John son said. Hes remorseful, very remorseful. Hes still upset about that. Mock said he must act based on the law, not his personal thought or feel ings, and that the law pro tects the right of Page to act as he did. He had a right to de fend his home, Mr. Page did. If they feel threatened or theyre scared, they have the right, the sheriff said. Its a terrible situ ation. Its a tough time. I feel like what we have right now is that he was defend ing his home. Mock and Johnson both said the homes isolated location, and the time of night, gured into investi gators analysis of the cir cumstances surrounding the situation. Its all based on what Mr. Page believes, John son said. He was in fear of his life. Stand Your Ground potentially pertinent Mock said he could not answer why Page did not call 911 when he rst no ticed Fasbenner on the property, and after he was non-verbal to Page. It was absolutely a time for law enforcement, the sheriff said. Theres no way to know why, only he (Page) knows that. That would be a question he would have to answer. Mock said investigators remained in contact with Assistant State Attorney Jarred Patterson through out their work, and in the written release wrote both came to the conclu sion that there would be no charges led based on the information at this time. Patterson said he spoke with State Attorney Willie Meggs on Friday morn ing to inform him about the shooting. Patterson said he planned to meet Wednesday with Mock to go over his ndings, and at that time, the prosecutors ofce would review the case to determine whether or not to take any further action in the case. That is not a decision I would make unilaterally without discussing it with Mr. Meggs, Patterson said Tuesday afternoon. The case is still ongo ing; thats where we are. Our (the state attorneys ofces) decision has not been made. That hasnt been determined yet, as far as were concerned. Patterson said Floridas Stand Your Ground laws are potentially pertinent to the case, but he de clined to elaborate on the matter until his ofce has had to review the sheriffs ndings. Mock said investiga tors are also probing Fas benners whereabouts and prior behavior that eve ning. The family believes Fasbenner might have got ten lost while walking back to his grandparents house at 47 Pine Ave. He was quiet, and led by example At Mondays benet, Fasbenners grandmother recounted a teeny, scraw ny little thing who had grown into a tall, strong young man, who had a happy childhood and never gave his grandparents the least bit of trouble. Chris Granger, who played linebacker along side Fasbenner during his high school years and ran as a fullback through holes punched by the hard-hit ting lineman, said he was a good guy to play with, for sure. He was quiet, and kind of led by example. After graduation, Fas benner had made plans to attend Tallahassee Community College but lacked the funds and went to work as cook at That Place on 319, a restaurant owned by Mike Keller in Crawfordville. It was while there that he met the love of his life, Brittany Lewis, a 2012 Wakulla High School grad, and the two made plans to marry. Fasbenners longterm plans were to become a correctional ofcer. His short-term plans were to attend Saturday evenings prom with his cousin, Franklin County High School junior Gra cyn Butler, who were like brother and sister. On the Wednesday be fore the shooting, he had rented his tuxedo, and on Friday he was to pick it up.

Mary Sue Richards MARY SUE RICHARDS By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com A group of signs belonging to the Tonyas Hope organization have disappeared. The signs advertising the annual Tonyas Hope fundraiser were along U.S. 98 between Lanark Village and Carrabelle. Organizers believe someone might have mistakenly collected the signs and ask that they be returned to Camp Gordon Johnston Legion Post 82 on Oak Street in Lanark Village. Despite the missing signs, the eighth annual Tonyas Hope Cancer Foundation fundraiser came off without a hitch on Saturday, April 5. According to Kathy Ingersoll a spokesperson for the event, 15 Boston butts and 75 barbecue dinners were served. There was also a yard sale, raf e and auction. Live entertainment was provided by Debi Jordan and Evelyn McAnally. Tonyas Hope was founded by the members of Post 82 after Tonya Bridges of Lanark was diagnosed with cancer. It is the mission of Tonyas Hope to relieve some of the nancial stress of everyday expenses such as gasoline, groceries, utilities, rent, etc. while being treated for cancer. Over the years, it has assisted about 60 cancer patients with expenses. The rst year was for Tonya, but since then, we have reached out to as many members of the community as possible, Ingersoll said. To qualify, you need to be being treated for cancer with radiation, chemo or surgery, and a resident of Franklin County. To receive an application, call 625-0382.

Migrating songbirds, including warblers, tanagers, buntings, veeries and thrushes, stop in our forests during their long trek from wintering grounds in South America to breeding grounds farther north. They y hundreds of miles across the Gulfs open waters and stop to rest and refuel at the rst land they see. Most of these birds are small, weighing between and 1 ounce, and use up all of their stored fat reserves during the trek. Finding good habitat where they can nd quality food and shelter to replenish their stores before the next leg of their journey is crucial to their annual passage. These birds will only stay a few days to a few weeks. Researchers from NOAAs Environmental Cooperative Science Center are trying to determine exactly how the barrier islands speci cally are being utilized by these neotropical migrants. Dr. Chris Heckscher, Dr. Lori Lester and graduate students Mariamar Gutierrez-Ramirez and Alan Kneidel from Delaware State University are using the Unit 4 area of St. George Island as their study site. The group sets out mist nets during spring migration, which catch birds without injuring them. Each bird is carefully logged, banded and examined for physical condition before it is released. The group hopes this information can reveal how these bird groups use barrier island systems and how changes to these ecosystems over time might in turn affect the animals that utilize them. From April to May, they will blog about this years eld season at http://forgottencoastorida.blogspot.com. Megan Lamb is coordinator of ECSC research programs and services at the Apalachicola NERR.

By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com The newly formed Forgotten Coast Paddle Club has free owing ambitions for a worldrecord event. On Saturday, April 5, about 30 kayakers gathered to begin working out the kinks in an upcoming event they hope will be a record breaker. The paddlers launched from Ten-Foot Hole and the Apalachicola Maritime Museum and traveled north and across the channel on a fog-drenched morning to form a kayak raft of the type specied by the Guinness Book of World Records. To qualify, each boat must be in contact with at least one other boat, and the entire group must be separated from the shore for at least ve minutes. When the raft was formed, the boaters raised their paddles in salute and posed for photos. The get-together was a dress rehearsal for something organizers hope will be much bigger. On May 16-17, they hope to set a new Guinness world record for the largest oat gathering of kayaks. The current Guinness world record was set Sept. 24, 2011, when 1,902 kayaks and canoes assembled on Fourth Lake in Inlet, N.Y., at the event One Square Mile of Hope. It was sponsored by the Central Adirondack Paddlers Society to raise money to bene t the Susan G. Komen Foundation. On May 17, the paddle club here will attempt to assemble more than 2,100 kayaks to beat that record. Kayaks will gather and be linked by boaters arm-in-arm or paddle-topaddle and assembled for 30 seconds. Proceeds from Paddle Jam, as the event has been dubbed, will bene t at risk children, youth and families in need through the outreach ministries of the Apalachicola St. George Island Cooperative Parish. Organizers of Paddle Jam are Rev. Themo Patriotis of the Cooperative Parish, Danny Itzkovitz, Beverly Hewitt, Palmer Philyaw, Bud Hayes, Missy Miller and Sam Fortunas. According to their press release, Paddle Jam is a festival celebrating the Forgotten Coast through paddle sports, music and food. Paddle Jam is a uid festival with events happening at various locations in Apalachicola and St. George Island. If you love2paddle we invite you to join with us and paddle2love as we help those in need. For more information, call 927-3259. Paddle Jam offers something for everyone and is for people who are passionate about life on the Forgotten Coast. Time to get the lawn in shape By LES HARRISON Special to the Times Spring is of cially here, so this means it is time to get the lawn in shape for another growing season in Franklin County. The rst step is to develop an action plan which sets the path to achieving turf success. A good starting point is mowing the lawn to get any leaves removed and trim any weeds which have emerged. Empty the bagged clipping in a compost pile for later use. Shaded areas under trees must be treated differently since grass will not grow in those areas. Just leave the natural tree leaf mulch there and add additional mulch as needed. If there are marginally shaded areas where turf is preferred, spring is a good time to plant some grass plugs. All southern turf grasses prefer full sun, but a few St. Augustine cultivars such as Seville, Delmar, and Captiva will tolerate some shade. Trying some plugs of Seville St. Augustine is a low-cost way of determining if there is enough sunlight to grow grass. The plugs are available at local garden centers and hardware stores. If the plugs dont take hold and spread, then there is not enough sunlight. Use groundcovers, mulches, or other plantings in these shaded areas. Before mowing, use a ruler to set the cutting level. Try to never remove more than one-third the length of the grass blade at any one mowing. Sharpen the mower blades after every four to eight hours of mowing so a ragged cut is avoided. Maintain St. Augustine grass at about three inches tall and centipede at about one and one-half inches. Most of the weeds currently in Franklin County lawns are winter annuals. They are currently owering and will soon go to seed, then die as the weather gets hotter. It is dif cult to kill these winter annuals at this mature stage, so applying herbicide now is pointless. The best option is to keep the weeds mowed so they do not produce as many seed and reemerge next year. Also, apply a pre-emergent herbicide in October 2014 to minimize 2015s spring weeds. Now is the time to put out a preemergent herbicide for most of the summer weeds. The easiest way to apply this herbicide is with a weed-and-feed fertilizer. Select a weed-and-feed which has the appropriate fertilizer analysis. Many heavily advertised national brands do not necessarily have the right blend of fertilizer nutrients. Local nurseries, though, may have fertilizers blended and packaged which are tailored for Franklin County soil conditions. Unless a soil test indicates a need for phosphorus, the best fertilizers to use on lawns will be missing this nutrient. The commonly available 15-0-15 fertilizers should also have half of the nitrogen (7.5%) in a slow-release form. Many local retailers have these 15-015 fertilizers with and without herbicide. Generally speaking apply the 15-0-15 fertilizer without herbicide at the rate of six and a half pounds of fertilizer per 1,000 square feet of lawn. Follow the label directions if using the 15-0-15 fertilizer with herbicide. Lightly water the fertilizer in with about onequarter inch of water after applying it. If the soil is too compacted, too wet, too dry, or has nematodes, certain weeds may grow better in those conditions than does your lawn grass. Take the time to identify why the grass is not growing well. Rain has provided enough water so far this spring, but this could change at any moment. However, do not water unless it is needed. Only water when about thirty percent of the lawn wilts, turning dull grayish color as the leaf blades roll inward. At that time water deeply, applying about one-half inch of water as measured in cans placed in the sprinkler pattern.

On April 1, the team traveled to Port St. Joe and fell 6-4 to the Tiger Sharks. It was a well-played game for both teams, said Coach Aaron York. We did not get the timely hit when we needed it. Senior James Newell pitched two innings and had two strikeouts; Senior Bobby Curry pitched ve innings, struck out three, and took the loss. Leading hitters were senior Logan McLeod, 2-3 with a double and single; senior Alex Causey 2-2 2 walks and a run scored; and seventh grader Ethan Riley, 2-4 with a run scored. On Friday the Seahawks hosted Wewahitchka, but due to there being no of cials properly assigned, the game and stats were unof cial. The Gators won 5-3, with freshman Corbin Rester opening on the mound. Newell then came in in relief, and hurled six innings, striking out seven. McLeod went 12 at the plate, and scored a run, while Newell was 2-3 with two runs scored. Tuesdays game against Altha was cancelled, after Altha forfeited due to their having double scheduled games on the same day. The Seahawks are home on Thursday, April 10, against East Gadsden. Senior Night ceremonies begin at 6 p.m. The district tournament is April 22, 23 and 25 at South Walton.
