By unanimous consent, the board June 19 accepted the recommendation of Super intendent Nina Marks to hire Yvette Lern er, a former teacher in the district who now lives in Chipley. Marks said there had been about two dozen applicants to succeed Eric Bidwell as principal, and that a committee of the Panhandle Area Education Consortium, including Franklin Countys Nick OGrady, had whittled it down to ve applicants. Four of these were interviewed, and Marks selected Lerner. I would like to express my support for the incoming principal of Franklin County Schools, Marks said. Mrs. Yvette Le rner has been a friend of Franklin County for many years, conducting professional development workshops to improve our mastery of curriculum. Faculty and staff are very familiar with her. Mrs. Lerner has the talent for enhancing programs and us ing her leadership skills to make learning more exciting for the faculty and the stu dents they instruct. Bringing in Mrs. Le rner is a gain for Franklin County. Support staff offered 3-percent raise By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com Teachers and support staff are expected to review a contract Monday that, if ratied, would give support staff a 3 percent raise, and teachers 1 percent, beginning July 1.

Alan Richardson, who chairs the Tallahas see-based non-prot Organization of Articial Reefs group, said the deployment took place June 17 and 18, funded by a mix of state grants, matching funds and private donations. The new reef components, named in mem ory of young men whose life were tragically cut short, expand to the south the 10 Mile Reef complex, about three miles offshore of Dog Island. Origins of the reef date back to 1999 when a group of divers from Thomasville, Georgia created the Rose City Reef, the rst in a com plex series of smaller patch reefs that have grown over the years with additional portions, each named in the memory of a shing or div ing enthusiast who loved the Gulf waters. The most recent of these, the popular Robbys Reef was christened in May, 2011, and includes a 12-ton metal sculpture. Costs are defrayed each year by supporters of the Robby Redding family, through a fundraising event on Robbys traditional birthday after Christmas. Last weeks deployment included an en hancement of Robbys Reef, which added another eight articial reef units to the patch Where the reefs are The following are deployment coordinates for the new reefs.

By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star.com The National Weather Service said there is no evidence that a tor nado touched down in Carrabelle on Sunday. When strong winds swept across his property downing limbs and trees on Sunday, Shawn Bunnell grabbed his 6-year old daughter and sheltered in a central bathroom. Jeff Fournier, a forecaster for the National Weath er Service said Bunnell did the wise thing. Bunnell said he did not see a twist er but believed the pattern of damage in his Avenue J neighborhood indi cated a small tornado had touched down. The forecaster said his ofce didnt receive any reports of torna does in Franklin County over the weekend and there was no evidence of cyclonic activity on radar. He said the National Weather Service issued a warning of possible strong winds and thunderstorms. What we did receive were re ports of trees and limbs downed by strong straight-line gusts all across the warning area, said Fournier. While no gusts stronger than 40 mph were recorded, Fournier said small severe disturbances known as microbursts are difcult to record be cause they are short and often on a very small scale. Bunnell said falling limbs damaged a childs plastic playhouse, dented his truck, scratched his car and ipped a carport in his yard. Fournier said his agency received an unusual number of reports of dam age to light structures like carports on Sunday. On Monday, as rain continued to pour down, Bunnell said a crew from the Franklin Correctional Institution removed fallen limbs from his yard and cut up trees in the public right of way. In the summer you get micro bursts you cant predict, Fournier said. There are some days you can say they are more likely than normal. He said trees are more likely to fall when they are rooted in water-satu rated soil.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, June 26, 2014 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com The slate of candidates for the upcoming primary and general elections is now set, with one election already decided. Because he was unopposed in his bid to succeed the retiring Jimmy Gander as school board member for District 4, Stacy Kirvin, 52, of 142 Deer Patch Rd., Apalachicola will assume that ofce following the general election in November. Kirvin spent a mere $16.50 in his bid to qualify last week for the ofce. He invested $15 in a voter registration list for the district, and $1.50, or 10 cents each, to have the 15 names on his petition certied for the nonpartisan election. The other race in District 4, for county commissioner, promises to be an exciting one, as incumbent Joseph Smokey Parrish, 52, 108 Long Rd. Apalachicola, is facing a challenge from Royce S. Rolstad III, 31, 119 Hicks Lane, Apalachicola. The two are squaring off in the Aug. 26 Democratic primary, where winner takes all. Because there are no declared Republican candidates for the ofce, the primary will be a universal one, meaning members of either party, or those without party afliation, or those afliated with a small party, all are eligible to vote. As of Monday, the total number of registered voters, 1,213, in this district comprised 899 Democrats, 211 Republicans, and 103 either from other parties or without afliation. CONTESTED ELECTIONS ON THE EASTERN END Both the county commission and school board races are being contested on the eastern end of the county, in District 2 encompassing portions of Carrabelle, Lanark Village and Alligator Point. County Commissioner Cheryl Sanders, 58, 4901 Jeff Sanders Road, Carrabelle, is not facing an opponent in the Democratic primary, so she goes directly to the Nov. 4 general election. There, she will face the winner from the two Republican candidates, Mark Nobles, 57, 10-5 W Pine St., Lanark Village, and William Snyder, 55, 2332 Enabob Street, Carrabelle, who are vying to unseat her. The Aug. 26 Republican primary in District 2 will be decided only by those who are registered with the GOP. Registration for the primary ends July 28. Nobles and Snyder will be seeking to gain a majority of the districts Republicans, who numbered 513 as of June 16. The district also contains 813 Democrats, 198 without party afliation and 45 registered with small parties, but none of these will be eligible to vote in the GOP primary for county commissioner. All these 1,569 voters, however, will have a say in which of the three declared candidates for the nonpartisan school board seat in District 2 emerges as the victor. At the primary, the voters will decide among incumbent David Hinton, 78, 112 Hinton Street, Carrabelle, challenger Wilburn Ray Messer, 55, 166 Sanborn Road, Carrabelle; and challenger Pamela Marshall, 56, 1989 River Bend Plantation Road, Carrabelle. If one of the three earns a majority of the votes cast, 50 percent plus one, then they will be declared the winner. Otherwise the top two candidates will then square off at the general election. While there are no local candidate elections in the three other districts, there will be plenty to decide on a state level at both the primary and general elections, including a school referendum in November that will decide whether the superintendent will remain as an elected ofce, or will change in 2016 to a manner in which the head of the schools is appointed by the school board. A countywide majority vote is necessary to change the way that ofce is lled. Registration in the other three districts, as of Monday, were as follows. District 1, including Eastpoint and St. George Island: 1051 Democrats, 542 Republicans and 172 other, for a total of 1,765 registered voters. District 3, including the Hill area north of U.S. 98, 959 Democrats, 144 Republicans, and 102 other, for a total of 1,205 registered voters. District 5, which includes portions of Carrabelle and Eastpoint, 939 Democrats, 324 Republicans and 171 other, for a total of 1,435 registered voters. All told, there are 7,187 registered voters in the county, including 4,661 Democrats, 1,734 Republicans, 649 with no party afliation and 143 others. Early voting in the primary opens Aug. 11 and runs through Aug. 23. Nor th Fl or id a Me di ca l Cente rs In c.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINI O N www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, June 26, 2014 A Section As I put my kids to bed I wonder what lies ahead Changes Comin On Written by Dean Dillon, Buddy Cannon, and Jimmy Darrell and recorded by Alabama Some time back I was asked to speak to an investment class at the University of Alabama. The experience was invigorating. Theres nothing like being around tens of thousands of young people enjoying the best years of their lives on a gorgeous spring day. Author Bill Bryson said the same about living in Hanover, N.H., but they dont conclude classes at Dartmouth with a resounding Roll Tide. The presentation focused on how our team makes investment decisions, how these choices differ for varying client objectives, and methods for establishing a productive balance of equities and xed income instruments in portfolios. The students questions afterwards centered around these same issues: investment strategies, inquiries involving particular securities, and how decisions are reached on market buys and sells. As I returned to Florida, I realized that while we had engaged in a theoretical discussion regarding investment choices, no one had asked about how to build an investment advisory rm as a business. There were no questions about client services apart from portfolio management. No inquiries about the costs of ofce space or software. No questions about payroll or employee benets. What the students really needed was not only a presentation on investing, but insights into the entrepreneurial experience. Somewhere around 75 percent of all self-made millionaires in America are business owners. As the U.S. job market devolves, this number is likely to increase. The days when someone handed you a solid paycheck with benets and a pension right out of college are rapidly disappearing. The ability of a young person to identify a need and ll it with a startup enterprise may represent the lifeblood of our economy in coming decades. Unemployment is now at 6.3 percent. This is down signicantly from 2009, when our unemployment rate stood at 10 percent. Yet, our domestic economic landscape is in trouble. There are still 1.49 million construction jobs missing, write Josh Boak and Chris Rugaber in an article entitled U.S. Job Market Recovers Losses Yet Appears Weaker. Factories have 1.65 million fewer workers Government payrolls have shrunk, taking middle class pay with them. Local school districts have 255,400 fewer employees. The U.S. Postal Service has shed 194,700 employees. Globalization and automation are wiping out millions of traditional employment opportunities. One of the best skills that a young person, or any person, can have is the ability to create and sustain ones own business. Small business has always been and remains the backbone of the U.S. economy. Creating a successful one may be the prime path to wealth for many younger Americans. Margaret R.

Future of the American workplace MARGARET R. M c DOWELL Arbor Outlook Page 4 By BR A D BUCK Special to The Times GA IN E SVI LLE Many parents presume their children will shun whole grains because they think they dont like them, a University of Florida researcher says, but a new UF study may start to debunk that idea. If whole grains are offered, kids eat them, according to a new study by researchers at UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Specically, former graduate student Allyson Radford and two faculty members found children ate wholeand rened-grain foods in equal amounts. We tried to choose foods we thought kids would enjoy, such as cereal bars, macaroni and cheese and SunChips and found that they ate the ready-to-eat snack foods the most, said Radford, one of the studys authors. We were interested to see if they would eat the whole-grain foods as much as the rened-grain foods, and so we were pleasantly surprised that they would eat the same amount whether the food was whole or rened. Radford co-wrote the paper with assistant professor Wendy Dahl and professor Bobbi Langkamp-Henken, all of whom are in the food science and human nutrition department. The study was published online last week by the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Eating whole grains, combined with a healthy diet, may reduce the risk of heart disease and help with weight management, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Examples of whole-grain foods include popcorn, oats, whole wheat bread and brown rice. Rened grains, enriched and fortied with nutrients, include foods such as white rice and white bread. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans call for at least half the grain consumers eat to be whole grains, and they urge adolescents to consume ve to seven ounces of grains daily, with at least half being whole grains. National surveys suggest adolescents consume far less, about 1 ounce, or the grain contained in one slice of bread. Federal dietary guidelines for the 2012-13 school year increased the whole grain required in school lunches. Starting this fall, schools must offer only whole-grain rich products. The new rules requiring more whole grains in school lunches should result in adolescents eating more of them, Dahl said, but many parents believe their kids wont eat whole grains. General Mills funded a broad study on the impact of whole grains on immunity. As part of the study, Radford wanted to know if children could meet the 2010 dietary guidelines for whole grains. For the study, 83 students in a Florida middle school were randomly assigned to receive either wholeor rened-grain foods over a six-week period in 2010. Of those, 42 students were in the rened grain group, while 41 were in the whole-grain group. Participants and their families were given rened-grain or wholegrain pasta, rice, bread and other foods to eat at home. And they were given wholeand rened-grain snack foods to eat at school. Researchers interviewed students weekly to see what fruits, vegetables and grains they ate in the previous 24 hours. Before the study, participants were eating about one ounce of whole grain per day. During the study, students in both groups reported eating more than six ounces of grains each day, and those given whole grains reported more than half their grain intake came from whole grains, meeting the 2010 dietary guidelines. Snacks served at school were the most popular grain foods the kids ate. Encouraging consumption of whole-grain foods that require little to no preparation may be the most effective means of increasing whole grain intake at home, said Radford, now a UF research study coordinator in food science and human nutrition. Brad Buck, a writer for the University of Florida, can be reached at email@example.com. UF: Kids will eat whole grains By JOHN D UNN Special to The Times GA IN E SVI LLE Consumer sentiment among Floridians rose to a postrecession high in June, climbing four points to 82, according to a new University of Florida survey. Because the condence level has been wavering between the upper 70s and low 80s for more than a year, we did not expect this jump, said Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. That surprise comes as Florida experiences a slowdown in housing starts and a rise in unemployment. All ve components comprising the index increased. Survey takers assessment of being nancially better off now than a year ago rose four points to 75, its highest level since the end of the Great Recession. Their expectations of improved personal nances one year from now increased ve points to 81. Respondents indicated they were also upbeat about the national economy over the coming year, registering a rise of seven points to 81. Their outlook for the next ve years rose two points to 78. Meanwhile, consensus on whether now is a good time to buy big household appliances rose four points to 94, another post-recession record. Junes burst of optimism was most evident among younger Floridians and those in low-income households. The current personal nances component among households with incomes under $30,000 a year shot up 18 points. The uptick is puzzling. This demographic is unlikely to benet from record levels in the stock market and price gains in the housing market that typically affect higher income households, McCarty said. And because of a lingering effect of the Great Recession, there has also been delay in household formation among younger Americans who have had difculty nding well-paying jobs and those saddled with student loans, he said. Something else may explain the optimism, McCarty said. Gas prices have fallen in the past month, but the Iraq crisis could change that trend. The state has also added jobs over the past year, though theyre mostly low-paying ones. Many of them are associated with leisure and hospitality, McCarty said. Those are the kinds that will be lled by people who live in lower income households. Although Floridas increase in consumer condence is welcomed news, McCarty said, it is worth remembering that at the end of two previous recessions occurring in 1990-91 and 2001, consumer condence was 89. In contrast, at the end of the Great Recession in June 2009 the index was 69. We are now ve years out from the Great Recession, and consumer condence stands at 83, McCarty said, but ve years after the rst two recessions, consumer condence was at 91 and 93. Clearly something is different about this recovery compared to previous recoveries. McCarty also noted that ve years after the end of the recession in the early 1990s unemployment stood at 5.4 percent, and ve years following the recession in the early 2000s it was 3.4 percent. Unemployment today is 6.3 percent after ve years. Conducted from June 1-21, the UF study reects the responses of 425 individuals representing a demographic cross-section of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of condence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2; the highest is 150.

You can think of the place, and picture Linda and Ken Lapaz in your mind, Southern down home friendliness and a phenomenal buffet. Anytime there is a funeral, they are the only place in town that will provide food without being asked and always free of charge. They are quick to help anyone, or donate gift certicates for local fundraisers. Well now its our turn to help them. Ken Lapaz has cancer, a rare cancer, plasmacytoma. He needs $15,000 to go to Shands and receive treatment. There is an account set up at Centennial Bank under Linda Lapaz FBO Ken Lapaz. You can donate at any location; no amount is too small. Be a blessing to them, lets help Ken get the help he needs. When you go in to eat there, say a prayer over him and his wife. They need those too. Thank you for your support in advance. Laura O N eal TIM E TO CLO S E S I KE S C UT In response to the June 5 article about the oyster harvest being cut back (see Cuts in store for summer oyster harvest, pg. A1), if low river ow is in fact the new normal, it would make sense to help the problem by reducing the amount of saltwater that comes into the bay. This could be accomplished overnight by lling in Sikes Cut. Few important boats use this cut anymore, and the few that do have other routes to the Gulf. Whatever the reasons for dredging this cut back in the 1950s, none are as important as restoring the balance of salt and fresh water upon which the oyster beds were created and have reproduced for thousands of years. With less freshwater coming down the river, its time to have less saltwater coming in from the Gulf. Its time to close Sikes Cut.

(See Southerland salvo just Tea Party extremism pg. A4, June 5, 2014 Times) My Uncle Skeeter who is very smart says he believes the writer is qualied to replace Susan Rice on Sunday morning talk shows, whatever that means. Did you see that part where she called our letterwriting friend Willie Norred a surrogate ack? I had to ask my brother-in-law, Shorty, what that meant. You know, Shorty is smart too. Shorty says its somebody that preaches every day of the week except Sunday on subjects ranging from Save Our Bay to Why Butteries Fly, and if you want to know why butteries y, go to your computator and click on Charlie Crist, whatever that means. I didnt get that part where she says that our congressman dont speak nicely about women. How could that be? The man has been married to his high school sweetheart for nearby 30 years and they have four girl children. Thats as silly as saying Gen. Dwight Eisenhower didnt like soldiers! Think about it!

Local The Times | A5 Thursday, June 26, 2014 reef, as well as creation of the Dixon Camp memo rial reef, about two-tenths of a mile further south of Robbys. Both the Camp and Redding families of the St. Teresa Beach community lost sons at young ages and approached OAR early on about donating funds in or der to memorialize them. OAR also had the support of the Thornal family, who lost their 19-year-old son Price last Easter in a trag ic trafc accident. Richardson said the deployment, conducted by Walter Marine, out of Orange Beach, Alabama, included three Super Reefs, large concrete and limestone prefabricated reef structures, that tower 15 feet above the Gulf sea oor in 60 feet of water. The placement of the Su per Reef forms is framed with 10 eight-foot tall reef structures known as Florida Specials, which incorporate native Florida limestone as part of their makeup. All total, this project will utilize three Super Reefs, and 30 Flori da Specials. Walter Marines web site says Florida Lime stone rock is comprised of ancient clam shells and matches a natural reef in both PH and substrate. Used previously in boulder form for articial reefs, Walter said it developed a patented process to embed the rock into the concrete reef surface, and that bor ing organisms that dwell on articial reefs cannot survive on a concrete reef but easily make the Flor ida Limestone reef their home. Richardson said the deployment costs about $125,000, paid for by a $55,000 grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis sion Division of Marine Fisheries Articial Reefs Program; a $15,000 match from the city of Carrabelle that came from OAR; and about $47,000 in additional private donations. Funds from the Big Bend Saltwater Classic have helped OAR complete its mission. State and fed eral funds come from a fee tacked on to recreational shing licenses, and from excise taxes that people pay on boats, motors, tack le, and the like. We could not have been able to make this reef proj ect a reality without the support of the city of Car rabelle, namely City Ad ministrator Courtney Mil lender, said Richardson. The city appreciates the increased opportunities for tourism that a project of this magnitude brings. It has been reported that for every dollar spent in reef development, $138 in tourism dollars are re turned back to the coastal communities. The state grant came af ter more than $1 million in requests came in for a halfmillion dollars in available grant funds, and Franklin and Wakulla counties each received $55,000. The project envisioned for the City of St. Marks is a realignment and en largement of the St Marks Reef, rst deployed in 1964. OAR, through the City of St. Marks, will be deploying over 75 prefab reef modules in a depth of 20 feet, and is also match ing $15,000 for this effort. OAR has submitted the grant paperwork to the FWC, and we are cur rently moving this project through the proper chan nels, said Richardson. He said re-permitting the reef expansion, after the original permit expired in 2011, was a lengthy pro cess, but OAR eventually secured approval form the Army Corps of Engineers. It took three years to repermit, Richardson said. Thats the hardest part, dealing with the Corps. Theyre awful. He said OAR had hoped to secure a contractor from Florida, but only Walter Marine, the largest deploy er of articial reefs in the nation, bid. Theres no body in our area thats do ing this, said Richardson. He said OAR, a com pletely volunteer group, is working with marine en thusiasts in Apalachicola to expand the reef off of George Island to the eats of Bob Sikes Cut, and per haps one in shallower wa ter off of Apalachicola. We got to get it permitted and it takes forever, Richard son said. He said they are also trying to permit a reef in shallower waters off Dog Island, perhaps in 25 to 30 feet deep waters. It would be closer to shore for smaller boats, Richardson said. A lot of people are downsizing and fuel costs are so much. Were targeting more in shore activity. He said by building one off Apalachicola in state waters, there would be more snapper habitat clos er to shore, and shermen could take advantage of a longer state season for the prized food sh. We have to make sure were not in shrimpers lanes, or sea turtle habi tat, Richardson said. We have to go through all the permitting obstacles. While articial reefs are popular with divers and shermen, they are not without their detractors. Some, such as the Ocean Conservancy, oppose their construction, contending that they exacerbate prob lems with overshing by concentrating large popu lations of sh in one area. In addition, they argue that there are too many ques tion marks as to the effect these structures have on the marine environment. the school board and the employees. These have tra ditionally been approved just prior to the Christmas break, or even later, and are retroactive back to July 1. Catherine Wood, presi dent of the Franklin County Teacher Association, said talks began in early May and that the employees team also included FCTA vice-president Jamie Du hart, FCTA treasurer Eli nor Mount-Simmons and Tammy Sasnett president, and Joy Towns, vice-presi dent, of the Franklin Edu cational Support Personnel Association (FESPA) Representing the school district were Shannon Venable, nance ofcer, and Tallahassee attorney Leonard Dietzen, the chief negotiator. Wood said the sides have tentatively agreed to raises for teachers and support staff, pending ratication. Teachers would get 1 per cent and support personnel 3 percent. The teachers were for tunate to have money from Tallahassee last year that totaled 5 percent of their incomes, Wood said. The support staff got nothing because the county was not in a position to offer anything. We went to bargaining determined that support staff needed to be respect ed for the jobs that they do and the best way the coun ty could do that is offering a raise, she said. Wood said the contract to be presented Monday night at the school would be for all employees, the approximately 80 teachers and 50 support personnel, not just union members. We are the bargaining agent but we bargain for all staff, not just our mem bers, she said. All are encouraged to come to this meeting. Never before has this been done, a summer rati cation vote, she said. She said the proposed contract also features new language that relates to the evaluation documenta tion. She said it offers stip ulations for pre and post conferencing with teach ers for observation and evaluations. In 2014-15 Florida is implementing new state guidelines that tie pay for performance, and rely more than before on evalu ations and test scores. She said a proposed change in health insurance could end Franklins status as one of the last counties in the state to fully cover the premium for individual coverage. Teachers have always had to cover the increased cost for family coverage. The proposal would cap the districts coverage of single person coverage at this years amount, and so employees would have to cover any increases in the cost of the plan. She said the district will continue to pay the premi um for dental coverage at 100 percent, which comes out to about $343 a year. Wood said the contract also makes changes to the differentiated pay scale, which covers supplemental for coaches, class sponsors, and other positions. If ratied, the band di rector would get the same supplemental as a head coach, and there would greater reimbursement for class sponsors, who would no longer have to share a single supplemental. Lerner, who is in Or lando this week receiving training on English Lan guage Arts formative as sessment tasks, said she was honored to have been named principal of the preKindergarten through 12th grade school. She taught second grade in Franklin County in 1985-86, after being hired by Janice Gordon at Brown Elementary School. Two hurricanes, one tropical depression and a success ful year of teaching later; I left to return to Washington County, she said. Lerner met and married the local Navy recruiter and taught in Washington County until 1990, when her rst son Matthew was born. The family moved when the Navy transferred Lerners husband to Brunswick, Maine and they lived there for four years during which time Lerners second son, Christian, was born. From there the Navy sent the family to China Lake, Cali fornia where they lived un til 1996. In 1996, Lerners hus band retired from the Navy and the family returned to Chipley, her hometown, and have lived there ever since. Lerner returned to teaching but in 2003 be came Washington Countys rst reading coach. In 2004 she began working with Reading First, part of the No Child Left Behind legis lation, and as a regional co ordinator for Reading First was assigned seven school districts, including Frank lin, where she worked with both Carrabelle and Brown Elementary. She had the opportunity to teach at the college level, at Chipola Junior College and Florida State Univer sity, and said she found teaching at this level to be extremely rewarding but missed working with teach ers and principals at the school level. In 2010 she returned to Washington County School District as district literacy specialist. In this role she worked with all schools in the district and supported literacy coaches, teach ers and principals as they moved the district initia tives forward. Lerner will have to earn her principal certication, and is enrolled in a program led by the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium to enable her to complete the necessary requirements for the needed certication. BARGAINING MEETING MONDAY All teachers and support staff are encouraged to attend an important bargaining meeting this Monday, June 30 at 5 p.m. in the lunch room of the Franklin County School. The meeting will discuss the recommendations of the bargaining agent of FCS. This informational meeting is endorsed by the executive boards of the Franklin County Teachers Association and Franklin Educational Support Personnel Association. There will be a vote taken at the end of this meeting.

On Sunday, lights ickered in Eastpoint and on St. George Island, and parts of Apalachicola and Car rabelle were left without power for several hours. Cable service was cut for even longer in some areas. In addition to strong winds, storms on both Sun day and Monday brought abundant lightning and pounding rain. On Sun day, about a half-inch of rain was collected in Rod Gasches rain gauge in Carrabelle. On Monday, Gasches gauge collected just over an inch-and-ahalf. Based on radar ob servations, Fournier said Apalachicola received at least an inch of rain, and an area one mile west of Apalachicola received nearly 3.5 inches. The record for June 22 in Apalachicola, 3.33 inch es, was set in 1942.

Local A8 | The Times Thursday, June 26, 2014 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star.com A relic of the rst Chapman School remains intact on the north side of U.S. 98. In the backyard of a house on Avenue M is a small shed made of thick cypress boards. It has double walls and three diamond-shaped windows set high in the side. There is a thick corrugated tin roof. Louis Van Vleet remembers the little shed from long ago. He said it was one of three outhouses that stood behind the old Chapman School built in the 1800s. Last week, he and Holly Lemons arrived at the Times ofce with pictures of the old school and a page from the 1913 Sanborn Insurance maps showing the main Chapman building, with three little buildings at the back of the block occupied by the school. There were small outbuildings at the northeast and northwest corners of the lot, and a larger outbuilding at the center rear. These were the outhouses. It may be that the two smaller outhouses were designated for girls and boys, and the larger shed in the middle for teachers. This arrangement was used at other schools of the same period. Lets go nd some history! said Lemons and we piled into her car and set off in search of the Chapman outhouse. When we arrived, Van Vleet looked at the little building with something like awe. My mother has probably been in there, he said. The shed on Avenue M has three doors, one on each end and one in the middle, so it was probably a three-seater. The little diamond-shaped windows, for ventilation and light, were set high enough so nobody could peek inside. Each of the doors was furnished with a lock, so you probably had to ask the teacher for a key when you wanted to use the necessity. The original oor would have had holes to allow waste to drop into a pit. This apparently has been covered with a new board oor without openings. There also would have been interior walls dividing the stalls, which have been removed, and the seats are gone as well. The pit under an outhouse had to be dug deep enough to prevent hookworms from escaping through the soil and infecting barefoot people near the privy. Hookworms can travel four feet through the soil, so pits were generally dug at least 6 or 7 feet deep. This would also reduce the problem of splashing. The building would have to be moved over a new pit periodically and the old pit capped with fresh soil from the new hole. The contents then degraded over time into very rich soil. Roderick Robinson and his sister own the property where the shed is located. He said the house there originally belonged to his grandmother, Georgia Livingston, who passed away in 1990. He said there was a second shed of similar design on the property at one time, but he tore it down. Robinson said it was smaller than the three-door shed still standing. That gives a clue the surviving outhouse is probably the large one that was located center rear behind the former Chapman Schools, and may have been the teachers privy. The building is substantial, with thick cypress beams supporting the roof. Robinson said a tree fell on the shed without doing serious damage several years ago. Robinson, 47, said the shed has been at its current site for as long as he can remember. He said his grandmother originally used it as a washhouse and he remembers it rst contained a scrubbing board and later a wringer washer. Recently, he cleaned the shed and found some treasures, which he shared with the Times. He found three textbooks dating to the 1950s: Social Studies Skills, Spelling in Everyday Life, and North American Neighbors, a geography text. These would not have come from the old Chapman School, which was torn down sometime in the 1920s or 1930s. The wood from the old school, probably cypress like the outhouse, was recycled to construct houses. Robinson also found an illustrated copy of Bible Footlights, a study guide for Christians, and a shing pole with rayon line and a cork handle. Thank you, Mr. Robinson, for allowing us to photograph your shed and sharing your artifacts and information. This is an interesting piece of history but it raises some questions. First, does anyone know if the three outhouses at the rst Chapman School were for boys, girls and teachers? Second, when was the old Chapman School dismantled and does anybody know which houses contain wood from the old school? Finally, when did indoor plumbing become common in Apalachicola? Can you answer these questions? If so, please contact the Times at 653-8868 or contact Lois Swoboda at lswoboda@ star.com. Inside of the Chapman outhouse Roderick Robinson displays a copy of Bible Footlights and shing rod he found in the old outhouse. I DO HOPE YOU WILL GET IT STRAIGHT A Bible study guide, found in the former Chapman School outhouse contained the following note written in pencil on lined paper. One has to wonder how this entire matter all worked out since she apparently never sent the letter. Apalachicola, Florida December 13, 1954 Dear Sirs I am writing you concerning this account you have charged me with. I have not ordered anything on account with you. I did order some curtains from you but I paid cash for them and I have the money order stubbs to prove that I payed for what I got. And have not ordered any thing else. I do hope you will get it straight. Oblige Mrs. Visa Adams 176 5 th St Apalachicola Florida P.S I do not even have a charge account with you all. P hotos by LO I S SWO B ODA | The Times Louis Van Vleet has known where the Chapman outhouse is located for many years. J A N GOR M A N | Special to The Times Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Solved! Experienced photographer Ed Tiley offered the following explanation for a strange image recorded by a game camera that was presented in last weeks Times. I have a guess that it is an insect, wrote Tiley. Looking at the image (wish it were larger) it is obviously a moving object. It is nearer the camera, and seemingly in range of the infrared light reected in the deers eye. Because it is moving (quickly and seemingly left to right and upward at a 30 degree angle), and nearer the camera, it blurs into that rectangular shape. Gary Carroll concurred. He wrote, Its a bug, ying past very close to the camera. The image is elongated because the bug moved during the exposure, and is overexposed because its very close to the infrared LED ash. The camera you mentioned has a quarter-second exposure time, plenty of time for a ying bug to have moved, but the deer at a distance did not move in that time. Look closely and you can even see a gleam off a the legs. Thanks for you insight, Gary and Ed! UFO MYSTERY SOLVED What was going on in the county 30 years ago this week? There were 400 fulltime residents on St. George Island. The Apalachicola A&P store had just held its going out of business sale, with 30 percent off all packaged items except tobacco. The Wilson family of Apalachicola held a reunion at Fort Gadsden State Park that was covered in a feature article in the Times. Hardees announced it would be open 24 hours a day from July 2 through 5 to accommodate holiday visitors for Independence Day. The Seafood Reef west of Apalachicola on U.S. 98 was looking for help and offered good pay, good benets and an insurance plan. Future Citizens for the Week were Chris and Chasity Richards, ages 4 and 8 years old. On the front page, the following story ran below the fold on Thursday, June 28. By LOIS SWOBODA LAW OFFICERS HARVEST WEEDS FOR BURNING By Roger Doherty Times Staff Reporter Local law enforcement ofcials discovered 600 marijuana plants last Wednesday during a raid on a eld adjacent to the Carrabelle River. The raid was made based on information supplied to Deputy Sheriff Archie Holton and Carrabelle Police Ofcer R.J. Brown. Five members of the Franklin County Sheriffs Department and Ofcer Brown participated in the raid. The 600 plants were discovered on three acres of land near Mill Road. About 220 of the plants were planted in pots. The lawmen picked the plants and carried them out to a truck during a thunderstorm for transport to the county jail. The plants were burned the following day at the jail. The eld was evidently a major operation. Lawmen discovered a specially mufed rototiller in the eld. They also found fertilizer, lime bags, manmade watering holes, a shovel and a bucket. There was evidence that the plants had been watered and dusted earlier in the day. Each plant would have been worth $1,000 when mature, according to Sheriff Jack Taylor Jr. Each mature plant, when dried, would yield about one pound of marijuana. This one raid netted $600,000 worth of marijuana. An additional 230 marijuana plants had been found in the City of Carrabelle earlier this week, and 90 plants had been discovered at another site. In all, 920 marijuana plants were found by Franklin County law enforcement ofcials last week. We have found somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,300 plants since April, Taylor said. The sheriffs department had no suspects in the case as of Tuesday morning. The case is still under investigation. Anyone who has information about marijuana plants being grown in Franklin County can call to report them to the Sheriffs Department. Names do not have to be given when reporting information. Last month, The Times attempted to collect information for an article about traditional Maypole celebrations in Franklin County. Unfortunately, we were unable to nd sufcient information and pictures for an article. Do you know about the maypole? We know there were at least two annual celebrations in Apalachicola, one at Trinity Church and one at Dunbar School. There may have been others. If you have pictures or information, please contact The Times at 653-8868 or contact Lois Swoboda at email@example.com. DO YOU REMEMBER THE MAYPOLE? 30 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK
Local The Times | A9 Thursday, June 26, 2014 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com Franklin Countys un employment rate rose by 0.3 percentage point in May and is now higher than it was one year ago, when the work force was larger. According to prelimi nary numbers released Friday by the Florida De partment of Economic Opportunity, the countys jobless rate for May rose to 5.6 from 5.3 percent, as the number grew from 283 to 300 people in search of work. This increase in job lessness occurred as the workforce grew by 52 peo ple, from 5,351 to 5,403. However, the current work force has 98 fewer workers than one year ago, when it comprised 5,501 workers and the jobless rate was lower, at 5.4 percent. The May jobless pic ture tied the county with Bay, Orange and Gilchrist counties, for 24th best among Floridas 67 coun ties. Franklin was worse for unemployment than Union, Collier, Baker, Hol mes, Santa Rosa, Leon, Jackson, Liberty, Clay, Nassau, Seminole, Bro ward, Bradford, Jefferson, Sumter, St. Johns, Ala chua, Wakulla, Okaloosa, Monroe and Walton, the states best at 3.4 percent. The CareerSource Gulf Coast region (Bay, Gulf and Franklin coun ties) experienced a slight uptick in unemployment, as a number of economic indicators continue to im prove across the state. The size of the local in crease in unemployment is statistically insignicant, said Kim Bodine, executive director of CareerSource Gulf Coast. We do know, however, that there was a large-scale layoff that had the potential to affect the numbers slightly. The dif ference between April and May in terms of unemploy ment is historically at, so the rates have gotten our attention. Just dont add up The numbers that show we are losing jobs in leisure and tourism for our area just dont add up with other indicators that we see locally, she said. We had the same issue throughout last year. When the adjustments were made by the Federal Bu reau of Labor Statistics to the Local Area Unemploy ment Statistics (LAUS) data, we were no longer losing jobs in leisure and hospitality. Bodine also pointed out data reecting economic growth. Every county in our region shows an in crease in taxable sales, particularly in hotels and lodging taxes over last year, so to show a loss of 500 jobs just doesnt seem accurate to us, she said. We question the number. Our staff does a great job in working with area job seekers and employers. Honestly, they have been recognized as number one in the state several times now. That said, I encour age folks who are looking for a job or employers who have openings to reach out to the CareerSource Gulf Coast job center. The regions unemploy ment rate for May was 5.6 percent, up slightly from Aprils 5.2 percent. All three counties expe rienced growth in unem ployment, with Bay up 0.5 percent to 5.6 percent, and Gulf up 0.3 percent, to 6.0 percent. Out of a labor force of 104,180, there were 5,851 unemployed CareerSource Gulf Coast residents. The May 2014 rate was 0.8 percentage point lower than the regions year ago rate of 6.4 percent, while 0.5 percentage point below the May 2014 Florida rate of 6.1 percent.

By unanimous election, at a meeting held at the home of Bill and Lynn Spohrer, the society voted for Carrie Kienzle to succeed Tom Daly as president. Also approved were another two-year term for vice president David Adlerstein, treasurer Fran Edwards and secretary Shirley Taylor. Selected to serve on the board of directors were Kathy Willis and Susan Buzzett Clementson. I really appreciate this honor, Kienzle told the luncheon audience. Im very excited. Kienzle, who has resided with husband, Charlie, in the historic district for the past eight years, brings a robust record of civic involvements in Apalachicola, including actively working with Trinity Episcopal Churchs Tour of Homes and with the municipal library board, as well as a seat on the citys board of adjustment. Her career has been marked by a lifelong passion for history as well as an extensive knowhow of the world of the modern library. After earning a masters degree in library and information science from the University of North Texas in 1990, Kienzle worked as a school librarian on the elementary, middle and high school levels before being named library director for the Irving, Texas, Independent School District, which comprises about 34,000 students. During her stint there, the American Library Association chose Irving as the school library media program of the year. And Kienzle has been a member of the Newbery Award Committee, which selects the best childrens book each year; the Caldecott Award Committee, which chooses the best picture book; and the Printz Award Committee, which selects the best young adult book. But even with that impressive resume, Kienzle made it clear in her remarks Saturday that the challenge ahead would be for everyone, whatever their background, to work harmoniously together. We have to leave our egos at the door, she said. We need to put on our oyster boots and roll up our sleeves. A native of Portland, Ore., who grew up in Rhode Island, where her father was an attorney for lumber interests, Kienzle earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Rhode Island with a double major in history and secondary education. In the early 1970s, she taught history in Middletown, R.I., and after living in various spots around the country, she and her husband settled in Texas. She and her husband have a son Charles, 28, living in Washington, D.C., and daughter Elizabeth, 32, in Lone Star, Texas, who has a son. Seth. In her remark Saturday, she lauded the restoration work of Terry and Pam Corcoran, who have renovated the Marshall House at 13th street and Avenue C; of Michaelin and David Watts, who have restored the Key House adjacent to Lafayette Park; and Lynn and Bill Spohrer, who have long been devoted to restoration of their home and commercial buildings downtown. Kienzle told of how she and her husband rst traveled here in 1990, after canceling their room at Seaside, because they had heard Apalachicola was for the intrepid. They stayed at the Gibson Inn and began a love affair with the town which has carried on to this day. She promised to help preserve, promote and protect the citys rich historical legacy, which includes one of the states largest collections of historically intact buildings. Kienzle said she is working on options for boosting fundraising, perhaps with the creation of an Society to help direct donations toward specic needs of the community. Its really never about money, she said. Its about having a vision and having the will. If you feel that you really know what youre doing and know where youre going, they will sign on.

By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star.com Rebecca Hutto is devoted to dogs and she has good reason. Working with the Franklin County Humane Society, Hutto has fostered more dogs over the years than she can remember and owned quite a few as well. She said her rst foster dog was Bub, a crazy terrier that spoke only Spanish. She said that so far this year, she has provided shelter to more than 30 canines until they could nd permanent accommodations. Her partner in her personal rescue mission is Monty, an AKC registered, 2-year old, liver and white Springer spaniel. Montys parents are a pair of Springers that belong to Huttos daughter in North Carolina. Monty is a big brother to all of the dogs I foster, said Hutto. He helps with toilet training and if one of the foster dogs wanders away all I have to do is say go nd puppy and he will nd the missing dog. Hutto said Monty, a puppy himself, adapts to the size of his foster siblings and is very careful not to be too rough. I have seen him play tug of war with a miniature dachshund. He was so careful. It was the funniest thing Ive ever seen, said Hutto. Hutto has a special place in her heart for Springers. When her daughter, Mariah, was 18 months old, the Hutto family lived in a mountaintop cabin near Asheville, N.C. One day the baby got out of the house, and dressed only in booties and a diaper, wandered into the woods with dogs belonging to the family. She was missing for hours. Eventually, all of the dogs returned home except for a Springer spaniel named Beulah. When searchers found the girl at the bottom of the mountain and miles from home, Beulah drew their attention to the child. Mariah was unhurt. Monty accompanies Hutto to work at the Peddlers Alley garden shop in downtown Apalachicola. Springers are working dogs. You have to give them a job, she said. He is our greeter. He is very good about getting people to come inside and plays with the children while their parents shop. Monty is paid for his services at Peddlers Alley. He takes his wages in dog biscuits provided by Oyster Bones of Apalachicola. Pe t of th e We ek HUMP HR EY an d hi s sis te r AU DR EY we re ow ne r sur re nde re d to us thi s we ek.

Lionsh are an in vasive species that have a negative effect on native wildlife and habitat. Approved changes going into effect Aug. 1 include: Prohibiting the im portation of live lionsh. Allowing the harvest of lionsh when diving with a rebreather, a device that recycles air and allows div ers to remain in the water for longer periods of time. Allowing participants in approved tournaments and other organized events to spear lionsh or other invasive species in areas where spearshing is not allowed. This will be done through a permitting system. Changes like these will make it easier for divers to remove lionsh from Florida waters and will help prevent addition al introductions of lionsh into marine habitats, said State Rep. Holly Raschein, who has been proactive in the lionsh-control efforts. From outreach and education to regulatory changes, controlling the lionsh population has been a priority for FWC staff. In 2013, they hosted the rst ever Lionsh Summit, which brought together various stake holders from the public as well as management and research elds to discuss the issues and brainstorm solutions. These changes were inspired in part by discussions at the Lionsh Summit. FWC combats lionsh invasion Offshore/Bottom Inshore/Bay Pier/Surf SPONSORED BY Offshore action is in between right now as federal red snapper is over and the July 1st re-opening of gag grouper. King sh have taken over all near shore wrecks and reefs with huge numbers. Good trout reports are the norm for St Joe Bay and East Bay. Hot summer weather has the sh biting at rst light, so dont sleep in. Other species, such as ounder and red sh, are abundant as well but are constantly moving because of tides and water temperature. Local area streams and creeks are producing nice bream and even good bass right now as well. Special to The Times Florida Fish and Wild life Conservation Com mission (FWC) biologists provided an update at the agencys June Commis sion meeting in Fort Myers regarding Florida panther research and conservation programs. Due to the success of panther-conservation efforts over the past 40 years, the panther popula tion has grown signicant ly since the 1970s, when the panther was federally listed as endangered. Biologists have updat ed their population range estimate to reect an increase to 100-180 adult panthers in Florida. Based on this estimate and habi tat availability, panthers likely have reached their carrying capacity south of the Caloosahatchee River. Historically, panthers ranged throughout Florida and into seven other south eastern states. Today, most panthers are found south of the Caloosahatchee River in Florida. The FWC and partners such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser vice are preparing for the natural expansion of the increasing population. Because large tracts of land are needed to sustain a healthy panther popula tion, private landowners will be crucial to range expansion. Due to the expansive habitat needs of the Flor ida panther, the continued growth of their population presents a unique chal lenge to the FWC and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said FWC Commissioner Liesa Priddy. As panther range expands, impacts on private landowners will continue to increase. With the increasing number of panthers, there also are increasing inter actions and conicts with people. The FWC and part ner agencies currently are working with landowners to address the challenges they may face in having panthers on their lands. We know panthers can prey upon pets and livestock, and we strive to nd solutions that work for people who experience these very real losses, said Thomas Eason, direc tor of the FWCs Division of Habitat and Species Conservation. People can help with panther research by re porting sightings at Flori daPantherNet.org. Re porting observations can help FWC biologists ad dress panther conserva tion needs by identifying the areas used by these large cats. Florida residents can support panther conser vation efforts by purchas ing a Protect the Panther license plate, available at BuyAPlate.com. Fees from license plate sales are the primary funding source for the FWCs research and management of Florida panthers. To report dead or in jured panthers, call the FWCs Wildlife Alert Ho tline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) or #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone. Florida panther population expanding By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star.com The fall webworm, Hy phantria cunea, is a moth known principally for its caterpillar, which builds impressive silk tents that sometimes enclose en tire branches of hardwood trees. The tents appear in late summer or fall. Defolia tion by fall webworm cat erpillars does not usually cause damage to the tree, since they feed in late sum mer or fall, just before leaf drop. While the nests are unsightly, the caterpillars are not believed to harm otherwise healthy trees. Fall webworm caterpil lars will feed on any one of over 100 tree and shrub species. Preferred host plants include hickory, pe can, walnut, elm, alder, wil low, mulberry, oak, sweet gum, and poplar. The moth is native to North America, ranging from Canada to Mexico, and is one of the few in sect pests introduced from North America into other continents. Introduced into the former Yugoslavia in the 1940s (rstly recorded in 1949), it is now found in Europe from France to the Caspian Sea and in Central Asia where it continues to expand its range. It was also introduced into Japan in 1945 and is now pres ent across the northern hemisphere. One generation per year emerges in the north ern part of this moths range. In the southern part of its range, there are two or more generations annually. The caterpillars are highly variable in color, ranging from a pale yel low, to dark grey, with yel low spots and long or short bristles. There are two cream stripes along the sides. After the caterpillar enters a cocoon, the pupa stage overwinters in the bark and leaf litter at the base of the trees. It is dark brown and about 10 mm long. The thin brown co coon is made of silk cov ered with bits of twigs and dry leaves. The adult is mostly white in the north, but in the south, it may be marked with black or brown spots on the forewings. It is quite hairy, and the front legs have bright yellow or or ange patches. Several methods of con trol can be applied to web worms. Small nests can be pruned out of small to me dium trees. Try to detect the nests when only several leaves are involved. These small nests can be easily crushed. Do not burn the nests in trees as this may do additional damage to the tree. The bacterial insecti cide, Bacillus thuringen sis (Bt), is quite effective against fall webworms if it is applied when the larvae are small. Thoroughly cov er leaves next to nests. As these leaves are incorpo rated into the nest and eat en, the Bt will be ingested. Many standard chemical insecticides are also effec tive when applied to the fo liage surrounding the nest.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes Dadlerstein@star.com After dominating the District 4 All-Star Tourna ment two weeks ago at D. W. Wilson Field in Apala chicola, the Franklin Coun ty AA All-Stars are headed to Marianna to take on the best throughout the state. Coach Andy Pace and assistants William Chip man, Travis Bentley and Ricky Abercrombie have shepherded a crew of 7 and 8 year olds boys, and girl, to the state. The All-Stars dominated the June 13-16 district tour nament in Apalachicola, by winning all three of their games. In AA, teams use a pitching machine, with the coach feeding the baseball into the machine, which hurls it at a speed of 40 miles per hour, directly into the strike zone. The speed is constant for every game, Pace said. You cant change that. The ofcial blesses the readjustment of the ma chine, he said. If theres a aw in the machine, or if something is not set just right, there could be problems. Although they are not machines, but young peo ple, the Franklin County team was set just right at the district tourney. In their rst game Sat urday, June 14, the Frank lin County All-Stars won 19-4 over Port St. Joe, and then in their second game won 21-2 over Wewahitch ka. In the championship game Monday, June 16, the All-Stars again defeated Port St. Joe, this time 16-10, although it was their most lackluster performance of the tourney. We didnt do too bad, Pace said. As a team were hitting the ball great. We nished the district tour nament with close to an .800 team batting average. We need to concentrate on keep hitting the ball and defense and I think well do pretty good in the state tournament. Pace said two players are batting .1000 and just one player is batting be low .500. Hannah Abel, the teams only girl, and Brett Charles, rotate each inning on the mound, and while they dont pitch the ball, they are responsible for scooping up ground balls and making plays at the bases. Abel is one of two girls in the AA league in the county, the other Paces daughter, Mason. Theyre a defensive player at the pitchers mound, Pace said. They have to make a defen sive play on it. Weve been blessed to play pretty good defense. Franklin County, the district winner, and Port St. Joe, the runner-up, both leave to go to state Friday morning, in Marianna. There, at the Friday night banquet, theyll nd out who among the 16 teams they will face as they embark on a fairly tough schedule of games. There are four pools of four teams, and each team plays seven pool games, three on Saturday, two on Sunday and two on Monday. Depending on the out comes and how they are seaded in the pool, the top two teams in each pool go to an eight-team double elimination playoff, with the rst round at 8 p.m. Monday. That goes through Wednesday night. Youll play every day regardless, Pace said. You got to make sure your players are rested. Pace said players and coaches run through defen sive and offensive drills at practice. We pair them off one-on-one with coaches, he said. We go over situa tions, we practice as a live game situation. Sometimes its just like verbal practice, like What do you do when theres a man on rst base with one out? Just to get them thinking What do I do with the baseball? Parents have been busy fundraising, and thanks to a donation from the county parks and recreation, and from the cities of Apalachic ola and Carrabelle, the team is ready for state action.

Local The Times | A15 Thursday, June 26, 2014 Special to the Times On Friday, June 20, a 14-foot, 2,300-pound shark passed about 60 miles south of St. George Island headed west. Experts say she may be headed for Texas. Katharine, a white shark (Latin name: carcharodon carcharias) has taken on celebrity status along with dozens of other sharks tagged with electronic tracking devices. The lovely Katharine, Kat for short, now has star status due to her unusual migratory meanderings. Chris Fischer is founder and expedition leader for OCEARCH, an acronym combing Ocean and Research, a non-prot organization with a global reach for research on great white sharks and other large apex predators. He said Katharine has become particularly popular among about 50 sharks being tracked because she often swims close to shore. I think what makes her special is she swam right down the east coast of Florida, right through Miami, right around Key West and then showed us for the rst time in history how the white shark gets up into the Gulf of Mexico, Fischer said in an interview with Computerworld. When she swims through these populated areas ... more and more people feel included and join in the movement. Though sharks like Katharine typically cruise up and down the eastern seaboard, she is currently crossing the Gulf of Mexico. Experts from OCEARCH believe she may be heading past the Mississippi River for the Texas coastline. Originally tagged by OCEARCH researchers off Cape Cod last August, she was named after Katharine Lee Bates, a Cape Cod native and writer of the patriotic song America the Beautiful. A dorsal n tag attached by OCEARCH uses a satellite to track a Katharines position each time she breaks the surface. Other tags include an RFID implant whose ping is picked up whenever the shark passes a special, underwater buoy; an accelerometer, similar to the technology used in an iPhone or Nintendo Wii, that detects up or down movement; and a Pop-off Satellite Archive Tag (PSAT), which acts as a general archive, recording average water depth, temperature and light levels. OCEARCH is a nonprot, global shark-tracking project that uses four tagging technologies to create a threedimensional image of a sharks activities. Researchers hope to develop successful conservation and management strategies by studying shark habits in detail. Katharine has become a social media sensation. Tens of thousands of people have visited the OCEARCH website in recent weeks, and its Facebook page has received as many as ve million visits a week and many of those visitors are looking for information about Katharine. On several occasions, she has crashed the servers at OCREACH. Why so much interest? In addition to her shoreline hugging habits, she may be pregnant. According to researchers, male white sharks and nonpregnant females typically return to breeding grounds every year, while pregnant females return every two years because of an 18month gestation period. Cape Cod is a white shark breeding ground, and typically, this time of year the sh begin voyaging back to that area, but not Katharine. Observers speculate this is because shes not trying to breed this year, which could mean she is already expecting. Katharine is also very interesting because this is the rst time a white shark has been tracked entering the Gulf. Up until now, researchers were uncertain of where the white sharks occasionally seen in the Gulf of Mexico came from. Well, Katharine came from New England. She traveled straight down the East Coast, past Miami and Key West und up the western side of the peninsula remaining within 200 miles of the shore the whole way and often venturing much closer. Should you stay out of the water knowing Katharine may be lurking there? Actually, Katharine is far more likely to be injured by humans than to injure one. Fischer said that 50 percent of the sharks tagged have been commercially caught and killed over the last year. This does help one understand the mind-blowing statistic that up to 100 million sharks per year are caught and killed, some just nned for a bowl of soup, he said. A research project that was started to advance science for conservation purposes has become a wakeup call for the global community to grasp the signicant mortality rate of shark populations. Over 50 researchers from more than 20 institutions have collaborated with OCEARCH to date with over three dozen research papers in process or completed. According to its website, OCEARCH expeditions, through the support of Caterpillar and other partners such as Costa, Yeti, Yamaha, Contender, SAFE boats and Mustad, generate satellite tracks and other forms of data for sharks, with planned expansion to other species in the future. Seventeen research expeditions have been conducted to date, with seven more scheduled through the end of 2015. By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Lswoboda@starfl.co m Money is available to in crease the curbside appeal of Carrabelle businesses. The Carrabelle Commu nity Redevelopment Agen cy has a mission to reduce and eliminate blight within the designated redevelop ment area or district. To that end, they are offering grants to spiff up the busi ness district. A brochure and application forms for the program were debuted at a CRA meeting held Tuesday, June 17. The Community Re investment Act part of the Housing and Commu nity Development Act of 1977 is a federal law de signed to encourage com mercial banks and savings associations to help meet the needs of borrowers in all segments of their communities, including lowand moderate-income neighborhoods. The Com munity Reinvestment Act requires federal regulators to assess the record of each bank or thrift in helping to fulll its obligations to lend to low and moderate income borrowers. This record will then be used in evaluating applications for future approval of bank mergers, charters, acquisi tions, branch openings and deposit facilities. A CRA designates a district in need of revital ization. A baseline of tax revenue is set at the time of designation. From that date forward, any increase in property tax revenue, above the baseline, goes into a fund to be used to im prove structures within the district. Carrabelle established their CRA in 1993. Since then CRA, funds have been used toe upgrade public ar eas with landscaping and sidewalks. Now, the city is making CRA funds available as grants to upgrade exist ing buildings to improve appearance and environ ment, improve functional ity, eliminate code viola tions, and help ll vacant or underused spaces within the commercial district. According to a press release concerning the grants, The CRA seeks to increase pride of owner ship and to get feet on the street. Crowded sidewalks and occupied store-fronts indicate healthy economic activity and a safe environ ment; a place for people to come and enjoy. There is no fee to apply for a CRA grant; however, making application does not entitle the applicant to funding. Application must be made prior to Septem ber 2014 to be included in the next funding cycle if approved. The grant seeking pro cess begins with a pre-ap plication conference with CRA Director Courtney Millender to determine eligibility. Next, an appli cation must be led by the owner(s) of the property. Please submit applica tion and all documents as a complete package. In complete packets will be returned. A checklist will be provided. CRA staff will review and approve or deny the application packets in the order in which they are received. Once approved for fund ing, the grant recipient and CRA Director shall sign a Carrabelle Commercial Building Faade Grant Agreement. that describes the obligations and limita tions of the grant award. Next, all required plan review and building per mits must be approved and issued. When this is done, the project may proceed with the CRA obligated to reim burse costs as approved in the agreement. Any modications to nal plans will require re view and written approval from the CRA Director and board. Once the work is com plete, the grant recipient will be responsible to ar range for any required onsite inspection by the appli cable city or county ofcials as well as the CRA Direc tor. Improvements will be documented and compared with what was proposed at the time of application. If any discrepancies are not ed, the CRA has the right to request the discrepancies be corrected. Recipient also submits written proof of payment for all improvements. Interested parties may request an application for grant funding from the CRA Director. In order to promote the revitalization of the com mercial core of the rede velopment district, the current 2014-2015 grant program funding will be limited to properties with no identied code viola tions, unless the proposed improvements serve to correct violations. Properties must pay taxes to the county and have no signage or struc tures that violate existing land development or other code regulations, unless the violations will be corrected by the work described in the grant. Properties current and proposed future use must conform to the zoning map and must be legally permit ted commercial activities. Occupants must have maintained all required li censing to operate, as well as being current on all city utility accounts. For qualifying projects, expenses are eligible for an 80 percent grant rebate. The maximum amount of a proposed project is $20,000, thus the maximum grantfunding amount is capped at $16,000. Awards are currently limited to one award, per parcel, per CRA Fiscal Year (October thru September). Improved areas must be visible from the street or other public space. Labor and material costs that may be covered include professional design and engineering services re lated to exterior qualifying faade improvements. Types of eligible improve ments include removal or restoration of deteriorated or sub-standard exterior building material; masonry work or new stucco, brick or repairs; exterior paint ing; new or replacement windows, doors and wood work; removal or replace ment of signs, awnings, landscaping and fencing. Paving can be replaced. Roof repair or replacement may be included. Grants may be used to bring buildings in compli ance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Millender said informa tion about the grants has already been posted on FaceBook and the citys website. Funds will not be available until after the citys budget hearings but we wanted to go ahead and accept applications so we could get a feel for how much many to set aside for the grants, she said. I dont believe I told that! Least thats what everybody tells me when I tell it. Its like, Keep yo mouth shut and let folks think youre stupid or say something and remove all doubt. It wasnt the dumbest thing I have ever done but it ranks right up at the top. Ive claimed to be a lot of things but smart aint one of em. So here goes. Im on my sixth Toyota Land Cruiser since 1972. I just like em. My last one was a 1987, that had belonged to two different Mamas and all they did was haul kids back and to, and such and they had never even put it in four-wheel drive. It was nice and I have to have something like that to pull out my 28-foot Adventure Craft houseboat, Lily, my river tour boat. So when a storms coming I haul her out on this big special made trailer and park her in our front yard right across from the boat ramp at the Mill Pond. (The city got a grant to build a boat yard and a haul-out right in our front yard almost and theres a big pile of dirt where theyre diggin a retention pond. At rst I thought they might be building a community Olympic swimming pool, which would have been a lot better than the dog park they proposed at one time.) Any way this storm was comin and so I gured Id better haul Lily out, so I drove her down Scipio Creek to the Mill Pond, tied her up and got my Land Cruiser with the trailer hooked up and positioned them on the boat ramp in gear with the emergency brake on like Ive done no tellin how many times. Now Lily has a lot of surface area so when the winds blowin its like trying to dock a sailboat with the sails up. Whenever I do this, Lane always asks if she can help but me being so hard headed I always say, No thanks. So I cranked Lily up and started linin her up to get on the trailer, well the wind was blowing straight up Scipio Creek really hard and I was having a time controllin her and gettin her lined up but I nally did and everything was perfect, almost snug but not quite. So, I gave her a little goose and when I did my truck jumped out of gear and here she came rolling down the boat ramp toward me. You cant image a worse helpless, sinking feeling, but I was able to brace my truck with my boat and hold her steady until a gust got me and I knocked out my back window, then I knew I was done for and my Land Cruiser was headed for the bottom of the creek. When, lo and behold, out of nowhere came these three guys who got in the water, secured my truck, then pulled my truck and trailer out with their truck, unhooked my trailer and towed my truck to my yard, came back hooked up my trailer with their truck and pulled out Lily. Of course they wouldnt let me do anything for them and they came back by my house three times just to see if I was OK, they werent worried about my equipment they were concerned about me. Hey, thats the way it is around here, everybody looks after each other, if you need help you dont have to ask. What a blessing for me that Larry Segree and his crew were working on their shrimp boat at the Mill Pond when I needed help. By the way, I got a 1985 Land Cruiser and its better than the one I sunk.

News BRIEFS Saturday movie at Camp Gordon Johnston The lm Biloxi Blues will be shown Saturday morning at the Camp Gordon Johnston World War II museum in Carrabelle. Biloxi Blues was the second of playwright Neil Simons semi-autobiographical trilogy (No. 1 was Brighton Beach Memoirs; No. 3 was Broadway Bound). Matthew Broderick stars as Simons alter ego Eugene Morris Jerome, who is drafted and shipped off to boot camp in Biloxi, Missi., in the waning days of World War II. The story begins as 20-year-old Jerome, from Brooklyn, is sent to Biloxi for basic training. There he meets a diverse assortment of soldiers, including the gentle intelligent Arnold Epstein (Corey Parker), the plays central gure. The piece portrays Epsteins struggle for power with middle-aged, harddrinking platoon leader Sgt. Merwin J. Toomey (Christopher Walken). In the plays most memorable scene, Epstein manages to force Toomey to perform 200 pushups in front of the platoon. The lm will be shown at 10:15 a.m. Saturday, June 28, at the museum, 1001 Gray Ave. in Carrabelle. Free popcorn will be available. Entry by donation and appreciated Like us on THE APALACHICOLA TIMES
