A feast of lamb and desserts followed. Apalachicola residents Danny Itzkovitz and his children, Alex and Maya, with Jody Rosenbaum and her husband, Will, helped lead those gathered in prayers in the Hebrew language, thanking God for bringing Moses to take the Jews out of slavery in Egypt under Pharaoh. George Rudo, a Trinity member, also presided over the program organized by the Parish Life Committee, chaired by Susan Clementson and Ina Margaret Meyer. Clementson reminded those gathered that, Christianity came from this tradition and that it is important that cultures come together during this holy season. Will Rosenbaum was pleased that, Each year, the church invites more tribe members that know how its done. It is done is by telling a story, using food and drink as symbolism. According to 30MinuteSeder.com, Passover is referenced throughout the evening, a story with a sad beginning but happy ending. For Jews and Christians it is a time to re ect on the oppression of shared ancestors and the less fortunate. Rudo and Jody Rosenbaum began by lighting festival candles and praying that all who are free appreciate blessings of abundance. About 70 people sat at tables set with the Seder plate, on which was Matzo, bitter herbs or horseradish, (Maror and Chazeret), an apple and nut dish resembling mortar used by slaves (Charoset), hardboiled egg (Seitzah), parsley for the arrival of spring (Karpas), bowls of salt water, and wine that guests poured for the next person, as though each had a servant for the night. The Itzkovitz children, attending Trinitys Seder for the rst time, then read the Four Questions, which provide answers to why the Seder is different than any other night and stress that its rituals be explained in a way that all Gods children can understand. This was followed by the AfricanAmerican spiritual Go Down Moses, explaining that God spoke to Moses in a burning bush, and after enduring 10 plagues symbolized by dipping a nger into wine and onto New tness center to open Monday By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com The Forgotten Coast Fitness and Wellness Center will open its doors on Monday, April 21. The center, located in the old Apalachicola High School on Fourteenth Street, will be open to members from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. According to a press release, about 20 volunteers moved 10,000 pounds of weight setting up equipment over the last week. FCFWC is now seeking volunteers to greet current and new members, collect membership agreements and give tours. The new tness center is the result of months of work after the sale of the building that once housed the Apalachicola Fitness Center, a for-pro t gym. The new center is a registered not for pro t. Kara Landiss, who has been a part of the project to build the new center from its inception, said the group has more than 80 members and has collected the equivalent of dues for 51 one-year memberships. It is less than we need to break even the rst year but enough to make a tiny leap of faith and to move ahead, said organizer Kate Aguiar. Aguiar said about 70 prepaid yearly memberships are needed to break even. We are looking for those other 20 members, she said. We have had so many people say that they are on board as soon as we are up and running. Now we are up and running. Members are being asked to pay for a one-year membership of $420, a six-month membership of $210, a three-month membership of $105 or a monthly membership of $35. To create a working tness center, workers made a pass-through that joins two former classrooms to create a larger space, installed carpeting and replaced whiteboards with mirrors and paint. Exercise equipment was acquired from the old Apalachicola Fitness Center with priority given to equipment with the broadest application. We wound up with a bigger space than we thought, Aguiar said. It will be a great space for aerobics. Organizers plan to provide space for April Patriotis to continue aerobic and kickboxing classes. Eric Olson also would be available as a personal trainer, and Mike Duhart will offer martial arts classes. Aguiar said down the road, FCWFC hopes to expand its services to include yoga, nutrition classes and more. She said member of the community are encouraged to suggest tness and wellness programs that interest them. For more info, contact Jan Thomas at 653-1068 or janetin email@example.com. Subject is switch to an appointed superintendent By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The school board is hoping a May 13 town hall meeting will help to provide them, as well as voters, with the information needed to decide whether the county ought to consider switching to an appointed, rather than an elected, superintendent. Dr. Wayne Blanton, director of the Florida School Board Association, will address the ins and outs of going from an elected superintendent, to one appointed by the school board. He will be available answer questions from county residents at the town hall, slated for 5 p.m. at the Franklin County School cafeteria. School board member Pam Shiver last month presented the idea to her colleagues. If a majority of the board votes to place the matter on the November ballot, either as a binding or non-binding referendum, it would then require the OK by the county commissioners to formally place the referendum on the Nov. 4 ballot. If a majority of county voters support the measure, it would then go into effect after Superintendent Nina Marks completes her term in 2016. First elected in Nov. 2008, Marks was re-elected in 2012 without opposition. The decision last week not to discuss the proposal dismayed some in the audience who were in attendance to speak out on the matter. Were going to postpone it so everybody can make an educated decision, said Shiver.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, April 17, 2014 Later in the meeting, Chairman Jimmy Gander allowed two members of the audience to address the board on the appointed superintendent proposal, but said he preferred not to have a full-blown debate. That discussion will take place but not tonight, he said. I dont want to get into everybodys pros and cons. I think this is an im portant issue. Were going to have to go through dif ferent steps. Dottye Thornburg, who has been active as a volun teer coordinator with the school system, said she believes under the current system, it will be difcult to nd someone with the knowledge and expertise to succeed Marks, who has indicated she does not plan to run for a third term. The process is intense. Ive been beating the bush es trying to nd a qualied person to step into her shoes, said Thornburg. Were at a crossroads of our education program. We do not have a qualied person to step in and take her job. I have talked to other counties, and more often than not, they have liked their decision to go with an appointed superintendent, she said. In a later interview, Thornburg said she reached her conclusions after asking several peo ple in Franklin County to consider the superinten dent job. I would not have asked them if I had thought they would not do a good job and were not quali ed, she said. The people themselves were the ones saying they were not quali ed. Some said they have been out of the education eld for too long and some said they had not been in the education eld for long enough. Earlier this month, the Walton County school board voted 4-1 to ask their county commission to place a mea sure on their Aug. 28 pri mary ballot to switch to an appointed superintendent. Presently, 26 of Floridas 67 counties or about 40 per cent have hired superin tendents, with the remain ing 41 counties, mainly the small and mid-size ones, continuing to elect them. According to a 2012 Ten nessee study, only three states Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi allow for local districts to elect superintendents. Across those states, 147 of the 355 districts, or about 41 per cent, elect superintendents a total representing less than 1 percent of the more than 14,000 school districts nationwide. The board also heard briey from Margo Posten, who works at the Apalachic ola National Estuarine Re search Reserve, and who spoke in favor of having an appointed superintendent. Board tables Bidwell re-hiring decision In a series of personal decisions, the board unani mously agreed to ve of six recommendations by Marks for the re-hiring of key administrators. Auxiliary Services Di rector Al London, Curricu lum and Vocational Educa tion Director Nick OGrady, Finance and Human Ser vices Director Shannon Venable, Special Programs Director Dr. Sue Summers and K-12 Assistant Princi pal Kris Bray were all rehired unanimously. A sixth recommenda tion, to rehire K-12 Princi pal Eric Bidwell, was tabled by unanimous consent. By unanimous consent, the board approved the hir ing, for the 2013-14 school year of ve coaches, and ta bled three of them. All eight had been recommended by Bidwell. Approved were Scott Collins as head softball coach, Aaron York as head baseball coach, Jonathan Creamer as assistant base ball coach, Mike Todd as middle school baseball coach and Bud Strange as weightlifting coach. Tabled were Brock Johnson as assistant softball coach, Kevin Newell as middle school softball coach and Teresa Segree as team statistician. One personnel matter that as not heard by the board was that of the rehiring of Lisa Sweatt as school psychologist, even though Sweatt made a per sonal appearance. Sweatt presented each of the board members with a report that included her resume, her proposal for school psychological ser vices for the 2014-15 school year, and letters of recom mendation from Bidwell, Bray, ABC School Principal Chimene Johnson, a joint letter from ABC School As sistant Principal Elizabeth Kirvin and School Counsel or Susan Bachrach, Frank lin County School Guidance Counselor Roderick Robin son, and ABC School Dean of Students Kristy Taranto. Sweatts current con tract ends May 5, as per the administrations deci sion, and the school board has put out a request for proposal (RFP) for the re mainder of this year and the upcoming school year. I wanted to give my credentials, she said. I am 100 percent compliant with (the requirements of the) state of Florida. I hope my service to the school system has been exactly what it should have been. School Board Attorney Barbara Sanders inter vened, and asked the board not to allow Sweatt to ad dress them since there is an existing RFP process. You should get them (proposals) all submitted on time, said Sanders. I dont think its appropri ate for one to address the board, in addition to the bid process. Its inappropriate and we can be sued over it and its not right. When you have a bid process, there are procedures that have to be followed. The school board mem bers passed the materials back to Sweatt. Later, two students Maddie Newell and Hunter Shiver both addressed the board regarding Swe att, and said she has been a positive and productive presence in their lives. Shes helped me in so many ways, said Newell. Shes been more than a friend; shes like family to me. Shiver, who like Newell played softball for Sweatt, said I feel like shes a posi tive role model for anyone who needs someone. In other business, Pam Shiver asked the board to consider revising the poli cy of wearing of tights or whatever you call them, undergarments and gym wear to school. This is something we need to address, she said. They should be consid ered undergarments. Venable told the board in her report that the school is running a cushion of 3.02 percent of its budget, or about $525,268, She said this fund balance included $326,992 in unrestricted funds, and $198,277 in re stricted funds. a plate 10 times Moses parted the Red Sea to let the Jewish people go free. The responsive prayer of Dayenu closes the ceremonial portion of the Seder. Dayenu means, It would have been enough. We are grateful to God for the Sabbath and Manna in the desert. Wine is then drunk reclining, which Jody Rosenbaum said is symbolic of being a free person who can lie down and no lon ger a slave. Finally, the door is opened, for the Prophet Elijah to enter the room and issue in the great Age of Peace. For attendees, the Seder proved interesting and meaningful. Clint and Anne Eason of Apalachicola wanted to have this experience at Easter time, and Jan Thomas recalled her own Sun day school lessons in rural Iowa. Itzko vitz, who spent summers in Israel as a child, remembered the Seder feeling like it lasted hours. But in the end, the chil dren get to hunt for hidden Matzo in the room. The Rev. Martha Harris concluded that the Seder is relevant to her con gregation because It takes us back. In Trinitys newsletter, The Bay View, Harris wrote that before the fourth cen tury, Christians observed Pascha, or Christian Passover, and these special days are a means to shape sacred time; and a structure in which to call Gods people to reverent and faithful response to God. Easter, like Passover, is a feast. Rudo summed up, As a Judeo-Christian this is history. It would have been a very dif ferent world if the Jewish people had never left Egypt.

Local The Times | A3 Thursday, April 17, 2014 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.co m On Saturday, April 12, volunteers removed over 2000 pounds of trash from Carrabelles streets and shoreline. The Carrabelle cleanup has taken place twice annually since it was rst undertaken as a project of the environmental committee of the Carrabelle Waterfront Partnership in 2006. This year, efforts were coordinated by Lesley Cox chair of the committee. Tamara Allen a spokesperson for the partnership said 30 volunteers participated in the mission, which kicked off around 8 a.m. A number of the workers were young people. Science teacher Stephen Tolbert offered a point of extra credit to students willing to don gloves and collect trash and a group from the after school program at the Franklin County Library Carrabelle branch also worked under the guidance of Bonnie Ball. Participants in a bow shoot on the river also collected trash on their way back to town after target practice was done. Allen said 30 automobile tires added the most weight of any single trash item to the take. I am so disappointed that it doesnt seem to be getting any better, she said. The amount of trash collected had stayed between 800 and 1000 pounds every time since we started work. This time the weight was higher than usual because of all the tires. People just dont seem to get the concept of a watershed or to understand that trash thrown away beside the road or in the woods still affects the river and bay. Allen said an unusual amount of discarded furniture was collected this year including a television set. She said the county waste and recycling department always provides a free dumpster to volunteers and hauls the trash away. On Saturday, a group of workers paid special attention to a piece of private property at the northern end of Twelfth Street East. Many of the tires collected came from there. Volunteer Roberta Clay said that, at one point, she counter thirty tires that could be seen from where she stood. In all, two trailer loads of debris were removed from the site, which has been used as an informal dump for some time. Cox was one of the Twelfth Street workers. She said the group made no effort to determine who was dumping the trash. Were not law enforcement, were just cleaning up, she said. She said there were still piles of trash visible when the group broke off work just before noon. Those are for another day, Cox said.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, April 17, 2014 A Section Page 4 Case has created more questions than answers Bubba Fasbenner was an all American boy! He was a quiet person with a kind heart and a generous soul. Although he loved his family and friends, he was quick to help a stranger when they needed it. He has never been known to be violent in any form or fashion. Up until the day he was killed, I have never heard anyone speak an unkind word about him. His death has torn a huge hole in our hearts thats not likely to ever completely heal. For me and those who knew Bubba, it has created more questions than answers. I have always been one to believe in the right to bear arms. The right to defend yourself against deadly force. But because I know that Bubba was not a violent person, it has brought the whole Stand Your Ground law into question. I have not seen the evidence that would convince me the Stand Your Ground law applies in this case. Shouldnt there be a burden of proof on the part of the shooter that indeed an act of violence ever occurred? The only thing that indicates someones life was in danger was the word of one man. The other witness in this case states that she was in the house and could hear them talking on the porch. Talking? Since when does talking constitute an act of so violent that you have to shoot someone? We dont know for sure why Bubba was in his yard. Perhaps he was lost? But if this was someone you loved, would you consider it enough of a reason to shoot them? According to the media, the shooter said Bubba smiled and then he shot him. Since when is smiling considered an act of violence? This really concerns me. I feel like the Stand Your Ground law has opened the door for people to kill for little or no reason at all. It is sad to think we have come to this. Are we as a people ready to go back to the old West way of living? Since this awful thing has happened, I have read the Stand Your Ground law, the Second Amendment law and the laws for probation over and over again. Its hard to look at the Stand Your Ground law without looking at the Second Amendment law because they are so closely written. But both say that one must be in reasonable fear of bodily harm or death in order to use deadly force. My question is this. When no clear proof is given, who gets to decide what is true and what is not? Its very upsetting to think of the implications here. Who will be the next person to die for a simple misunderstanding? If you are on your land, does this give you the right to play God? To choose who lives and who dies? Remember, this could be anybodys relative this happens to. Which brings me to the next question. I was told that the shooter was on (county) probation. I have read the laws of probation and it clearly states that a probationer has lost the right to possess a rearm. Does this not in fact mean that if a person on probation shoots another person, he has done so while in the act of committing a crime? According to the laws I read, I understood it to mean that the Stand Your Ground law could not be used in conjunction with or while committing a crime. I am not a lawyer. But I think the sheriffs of ce should look at all things involved before making a nal decision. I also think they should better prepare themselves for crime scene investigation, and not be slow to call in outside help trained investigators who do not know either party or are friends with relatives from either party. From all that I have read in the media reports and all that has been told to our family, I do not believe this case has been handled properly. We only wish to know the truth about everything. I do not want Bubba to have died for nothing. Because we have the Second Amendment in our Constitution and it so closely resembles the Stand Your Ground law, I believe the latter should be eradicated from the laws in the State of Florida. If not eradicated, then overhauled. The law is cloudy and should be more clearly de ned for situations such as this. The reports say that since the Stand Your Ground law has come into effect, the crime rate has dropped. I doubt it is because fewer crimes are being committed; rather what once was a crime is now being called justi ed, so it does not count in the crime rate statistics. Wanda Bair Special to The Times Scott Jackson, from the UF/IFAS Franklin County Extension Of ce, has announced that the state of Florida has initiated training of harvesters as prescribed by the Interstate Shell sh Sanitation Conference requirements for the new license year which starts July 1, 2014. During the rst two weeks of April, about 250 of the 1,600 Apalachicola Bay oyster harvesters have completed training with Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Harvesters can receive a certi cate of training necessary to obtain a new license at 3 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the FDACS Shell sh Center, 260 Dr. Frederick S. Humphries St. in Apalachicola. The free education program lasts about 20 minutes. For more information, call the FDACS Shell sh Center at 653-8317. This short program is replacing the twohour program rst-time harvesters have received in the past. Additional group training to receive certi cation is available through the Franklin County UF/ IFAS Sea Grant Extension of ce by appointment. For details or to schedule, call Jackson at 653-9337. Annual harvester training provides a basic overview of oyster-related issues such as safe handling of shell sh to prevent food-borne illness. The latest information and strategies to preserve Apalachicola Bays oyster resources is also included and being updated each year with guidance from local seafood industry leaders, researchers and resource managers. Complying with these new regulations helps protect the Apalachicola oyster industry and supports expansion of markets throughout the United States. Harvesters will be required to present these training certi cates at the time they purchase their license. Beginning May 19, FDACS will initiate actual sale of Apalachicola Bay Oyster License for $100. Please bring a check or money order made payable to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The last day to purchase without $500 penalty will be June 30. As a public service, FDACS is providing the Saltwater Products License in conjunction with the Apalachicola Bay oyster harvesting license. You will receive your SPL upon purchase of your Apalachicola Bay Oyster License. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com Two women have taken on the task of providing for feral cats on St. George Island. Helen Gore represented two properties in a housing development on St. George Island. Thats how she learned that 14 cats had been trapped and were destined to be sent to the county pound and euthanized. She contacted friend and animal lover Cathy Buell, and they took steps to rescue the doomed animals. The Island 14 are now neutered, vaccinated and safe, but they need your help, and so do Gore and Buell. The cats need forever homes. Gore and Buell are seeking partners to launch a trap, neuter and return program (TNR) on the island. TNR is the method of feral cat control endorsed by Alley Cat Allies, a national organization to protect and stabilize feral cat populations. According to the ACA website, TNR involves humanely trapping stray and feral cats and having them vaccinated and spayed/neutered before returning them to their outdoor home. It is the only effective method of stabilizing outdoor cat colonies. As a result of TNR, the birth of new kittens in the colony slows down and eventually ends when all the cats are spayed/neutered. In addition, socialized cats and kittens are spayed/neutered and then often put up for adoption, causing an immediate reduction in the population size. After using the cruel, costly catch and kill method for decades and failing to stabilize cat populations, local officials and animal control officers everywhere have realized that they need a completely different approach. Some TNR programs have now been in place for as many as 25 years. Apalachicola has already participated in several TNR initiatives funded by grants and by collections in countertop cat house boxes placed with local merchants. Cats that have been neutered and returned to the outdoors display notched ears so they will not be taken to the vet a second time. Buell and Gore said they are happy the programs in Apalachicola have been such a success, but now they want to take TNR to the island. In the immediate future, they are seeking a volunteer to feed several small island cat colonies two or three days a week. They also need homes for the cats they have already rescued. Buell said she has eight juvenile cats that are healthy, neutered and well socialized. They have had their shots and now need a place to live. A $25 donation is suggested for potential adopters, and Buell said she would like to visit potential homes before placing any of the felines. Gore and Buell say they have spent roughly $1,300 on the 14 cats they saved from the needle. That doesnt count the gas used driving to and from the vet and countless hours traveling, Gore said. She said about $700 of the money spent on medical care was donated by friends of South Carolina snowbird June Crawford, who runs a pet sitting business back home. Buell and Gore have named their project St. George Island Cat Allies. They are already working in partnership with the Franklin County Humane Society and are seeking 501(c)(3) not for profit status. Down the road, the pair is looking for cooperators with veterinary training to help with medical procedures without traveling away from the county. Gore said she is planning a meet and greet on the island early in May to promote SGI Cat Allies. Buell is offering an unusual incentive to adopt one of her furry charges. She plans to show her 20foot motorized catamaran in the Antique and Classic Boat Show this weekend and is offering a 30-minute boat ride to anybody who donated to the cause or qualifies to adopt a cat. She is calling her incentive program Save a kitty and Ride a Cat. If you want to help either by volunteering, making a donation or adopting a cat, call at Gore 323-0123 or Buell at 370 1125, or visit www.sgicatallies.com. Pain of the Cross The most brutal crime on earth was the day in 33 A.D. a sinless Man named Jesus was cruci ed at Calvary. He was deserted by His friends, arrested on charges of blaspheming by His enemies; and sentenced in a Roman Court to be cruci ed on false testimonies by the scribes and Pharisees. The hostile mob immediately scourged Him for the crime, and nailed Him on the Cross between two thieves at Calvary. The hour was at hand to give His body and blood for a living sacri ce for the sins of man. He silently suffered the brutal punishment of His accusers in public humiliation for everyone to see. His bloodstained face was swollen and wet with tears of agony; and His tortured body writhed with pain while His tormentors celebrated in taunting reverie. His broken-hearted Mother wept and prayed for Her Son dying on the Cross by sinners merciless cruelty. In the throes of death He whispered with His last breath, Into Thy hands, Father, I commit My spirit to Thee; and the redeeming blood owed from His wounded side as our Savior sacri ced His life to set us free. Praise God, Hes alive! His Father raised Him the third day to His throne in heaven to reign eternally. Wishing you a blessed Easter.

Jackel said Kemp plans to post signs forbidding the use of skateboards and bicycles in the park. Jackel asked county attorney Michael Shuler if an ordinance was needed to ban equipment from the park.

A6 | The Times Thursday, April 17, 2014 Special to the Times The Panhandle Players 2013-14 season closes with On Golden Pond, by Ernest Thompson, to be presented at 7:30 p.m. April 25-26 and 3 p.m. April 27 at the Dixie Theatre in Apalachicola. Directed by Pam Vest, this classic dramatic comedy is the story of an aging couple, Norman (Royce Hodge) and Ethel (Liz Sisung) Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. Norman, 80, is tired, declining physically and mentally, and he knows it. He speaks often of his impending death. He tries to cover all of this with a crusty combative exterior, caustic remarks and just plain rudeness. He has lost interest in the things of life friendships, his daughter, even shing and barely humors his wifes delight in the loons who nest outside their cabin. Jocular mailman and friend Charlie Martin (Gary Niblack) cant even bring a smile to Normans sardonic lips. But then, through a sudden visit from their daughter Chelsea (Judy Loftus), her anc, Bill Ray (Phillip Carroll), and soon-to-be stepson Billy Ray (Mikel Register), the couple is rejuvenated and revitalized. They rediscover their love for one another, much to Normans chagrin. The play explores often turbulent family relationships and the difculties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage. Originally written as a stage play in 1979, On Golden Pond has been seen over a period of 36 years in many stage productions in 40 countries, in three Broadway houses and in theatres all across America. Its famous movie version won an Academy Award. While it may seem dated (slang and mores change), audiences still nd the story has the capacity to make us laugh, recognize our own imperfect families, tear up, and yet leave the theater feeling like theyll all be back on the lake next summer. According to NY Daily News, On Golden Pond is a work of rare simplicity and beauty A Charleston City Paper review said, These days, with so much wild and crazy media thrust upon us at all times, its nice to sit down and be a y on a wall to a couples rejuvenation. And to be able to laugh while you do it well, thats just a bonus. Thompsons play has deceptive depth and enough subtle tenderness to melt the hardest hearts Its an understated realism, often uncommon on the stage. And its a virtue of a playwright that knows the audience will identify with the struggles of his characters without telling them how to do so. On Golden Pond will make you laugh more than any zany musical, and it will warm your heart more than any romantic comedy. Most of all, it will make you ponder your own mortality as well as the importance of each quickly escaping day. Adam Knapp, About. com Guide to Oklahoma City. This is not just a story of growing old but a reection of what it takes to love one another. Below the one-liners and clever jokes is a universally moving acceptance and afrmation of life.

This was her career and not just a pastime. During that time, she won numerous awards, wonderful trips and high recognition for her accomplishments. But more than all the awards were the many friends she made over the years, friends that she would help through difcult times and listen to their problems. Florida was a true family person; to her family was everything. She was so proud of and loved each one. A true people person, she was most happy when she was with family and friends. Prayer was ever present in her life. Often she would speak of concern for someone and follow up with the phrase that she was going to pray for them. And she did. She so enjoyed attending church services, and when her health declined, she missed this. The ultimate giver, Florida truly enjoyed giving to others. Not just on special days, all the time. She remembered birthdays, sent cards, gave gifts and wrote meaningful messages to her loved ones. She was a devoted mother, daughter, aunt, sister and a loyal friend and condante. She cared for others. She was so loved and will be so missed. The memorial service was at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 12, at First Pentecostal Church in Apalachicola.

There are important things people can do over the next few months to reduce negative interactions with Floridas largest land mammal. Now is the time to expect bears to show up looking for food, said Dave Telesco, who directs the FWCs bear management program. If they cant nd food in your neighborhood, theyll move on. Female bears that gave birth to cubs that were only 12 ounces in January are beginning to move around with their babies, which are now around 5 pounds. As the cubs continue to grow, the family unit will roam farther and could be more visible to people. While black bears generally are not aggressive, a mother bear may try to defend her cubs. Never intentionally approach a bear. Do not assume when you see a lone adult bear that there are no cubs, because the cubs may be hidden nearby. When walking dogs, keep them close and be aware of your surroundings. Dogs can trigger defensive behaviors from bears. Keep human sources of food, like garbage, birdseed and pet food, secure from bears so they wont wander into your neighborhood this spring looking for an easy meal. Use a bearresistant trash can, build a bear-resistant trash can shed or modify your existing trash can with hardware to make it more resistant. Instructions for these methods, plus a video on how to use an electric fence to deter bears can be found at www.pinterest. com/myfwc/bear-necessities/. If you do not have a bear-resistant garbage can, consider building a bear-resistant trash can shed. As females and cubs increase their movements this time of year, they also increase the number of roads they cross. For the safety of yourself and bears, remember to slow down when driving, particularly on rural highways at dawn or dusk. Watch for road signs identifying bear crossing areas. Over 200 Florida bears were killed after being hit by vehicles in 2013. Having con icts with bears? Call one of the FWCs ve regional of ces.

It is also commonly referred to as Chinese magnolia and Japanese magnolia. It is a deciduous small tree or broad shrub with large, fragrant, early-blooming owers in various shades of white, pink, and purple. When in ower, it is spectacular and, because of its small stature, 2025, it is a good choice for plantings near utility lines. It can be expected to increase in height by about two feet annually. The saucer magnolia was bred by French plantsman tienne Soulange-Bodin (1774 1846), a retired cavalry of cer in Napoleons army. At his chteau de Fromont near Paris, he crossed Magnolia denudata with M. lilii ora in 1820. From France, the hybrid quickly spread to England, other parts of Europe, and North America. There are now over 100 named cultivars of this plant. This is one of the rst trees to bloom in the spring and may ower sporadically throughout the rest of the year in our area. It blooms at a very young age. It has few pests or diseases. It is moderately salt tolerant and tolerant of alkaline soils. It is also resistant of high winds making it an excellent plant for our area. It will grow in full sun or partial shade and requires damps soil, preferably with moderate to high organic content. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com A new shooting range in Carrabelle is getting some use. On Saturday, April 12, 30 archery enthusiasts turned out for a 3-D bow shoot. The archers sported both compound and traditional bows and practiced in an area adjacent to the river to prepare for hunting season. The practice range is a project of the Intercessors for the King and Christian Bow Hunters from the Carrabelle Christian Center. The bowhunters have worked for the last month, mowing grass and clearing two areas on property at the end of 13th Street West. On Saturday, a clearing just off the street was furnished with standard bow targets. About a quarter mile down a sand road was set up with practice deer targets tucked away in greenery to simulate shooting in the eld. Organizer Shawn Oxendine was pleased with the turn-out but said he wished more Franklin County residents would participate. If we could get Franklin County people as involved as Tallahassee, wed have a crowd, he said. Christine Oxendine said she believed about ten people from Leon County attended the shoot. Nick Gregg who came down from Tallahassee said he had heard about the shoot by word of mouth. He said Franklin County shooters are invited to attend a bow shoot sponsored by the Tallahassee Archery Club on Saturday, April 26. He said the meet is a quali er and participants can earn the privilege of competing in state tournaments. SPECIAL TO THE TIMES Springtime sparks activity for Florida black bears, cubs SPONSORED BY April showers have set in for our local area waters, reaching near flood levels in some spots. This will have an effect on fishing as the waters will be muddy for several days, depending on the tides. Good surf fishing from the beaches has produced pompano, whiting and some big bull reds. Many anglers are looking for cobia this week, but with the rain and muddy water, these fish will be hard to spot. Trout have moved back on the flats in St. Joe Bay and are heading to the usual summer spots this month, getting used to the warmer water.

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 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com The Franklin County Seahawks downed East Gadsden 20-9 at home April 10, as they marked Senior Night. Six seniors Alex Causey, James Newell, Logan McLeod, Graham Kirvin, Cameron White, Bobby Currywere honored before the game. Sophomore Trenton Lee was the winning pitcher. He pitched 4 1/3 of an inning, giving up ve runs, six hits and ve strikeouts. Freshman Corbin Rester was the pitcher who came in for the save. He pitched 1 2/3 of an inning. Leading hitters were James Newell, who went 3-for-4 with a double; Alex Causey 1-for-2 with two runs scored; Lee 2-for3 with two runs scored; seventh grader Ethan Riley 2-for-4 with three runs scored; and Matt Murray 2-for-2 with two runs scored At South Walton Friday night, Franklin County lost the district matchup 9-7. We fought hard but did not make key defensive plays when we needed to, said Coach Aaron York. We were ahead in this game 6-5 in the sixth and allowed them to come back in win the game. We actually had a chance in the top of the seventh to tie the game up but did not get a timely hit. York said Newell and Curry, two seniors, pitched well in this game. We made too many errors, York said. With this loss we went to 8-12 and fthseeded in the district tournament in two weeks. We will play St. Joe in the rst round of the district tournament, which begins Tuesday at South Walton. Leading hitters in the game were James Newell 1-for-3 with a double and two runs scored; Causey 1-for-3 with a double; and Chris Newell single and a run scored. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star .com The Lady Seahawks closed out the regular season with a double delight a 7-1 win over Wewahitchka and a celebration of three seniors who have played their entire high school career together. I thought we played our best overall game of the season, and if we play like this next week, we have a good chance to make the playoffs, said head coach Scott Collins, whose team ran its overall record to 19-6. In an elaborate ceremony Friday evening, the team paid tribute to seniors Morgan Mock, Ashley Carroll and Ally Millender. First they were treated to owers and a walk around the basepaths, as the crowd heard recordings of their gratitude and joy at having played Franklin County softball. After that, it was time to take on a solid Gator team, and a pitcher, Naomi Parker, who is one of the best hurlers in the area. But the Lady Seahawks wasted little time in channeling their offense, and soon bounced Parker from the game. Freshman Megan Collins pitched all seven innings, giving up four hits, striking out four, walking just one, and giving up just one earned run. Her record is now 7-2. Junior Madison Newell went 3-for-3, with a double and a pair of RBI, stealing one base and scoring two runs. Millender went 2-for2, stealing two bases, and scoring a pair of runs. Mock was 1-for-3, with a double, a stolen base and one RBI. Carroll went 1-for-3, scoring a run. Seventh grader Sophie Kirvin was 1-for-3, while freshman Allie Kirvin went 1-for-2, with a sacri ce bunt and one run scored. Seventh grader Melanie Collins was 1-for-3, stealing a base. The team was set to meet South Walton Tuesday in the district tournament at Liberty County. If we win, we are in the playoffs and have a chance to host a playoff game, if we can also win on Thursday in the district championship game probably against Port St. Joe, said Collins. We split with South Walton during the season, each team winning at home. In nal regular season results, Mock led the team with a .520 batting average, with 83 total plate appearances, the highest on the team. Shes smacked the teams only homer, an inside the park affair, and led the team with 39 RBI, eight triples and 11 doubles. Melanie Collins, with 55 plate appearances, batted 488, while Millender, with 78 plate appearances, is batting .476, with nine doubles, and a team-high 19 stolen bases. Scout Segree, with 74 plate appearances, is batting .431, with eight doubles, a triple and 25 runs batted in. Newell hit .390, Sophie Kirvin .373, junior Calli Westbrook .372, Newell .357, sophomore Krista Martina .279, Allie Kirvin .268, and Carroll .243. Megan Collins has a record of 7-2 on the mound, with one save, with an earned run average of 1.93. Martina, who has pitched a team-leading 54 innings, has a 3-4 record, and a 3.89 ERA. Collins gave up 7.6 hits per game, and Martina 8.6. Carroll earned three wins on the season, and Sophie Kirvin one. PLAYER OF THE WEEK Lady Seahawk senior Morgan Mock earned Player of the Week honors for her outstanding play at shortstop at the Senior Night game. She stole three hits from Wewa by making three outstanding plays at short and squashed any chance they had at a big inning, said coach Scott Collins.
