With Commissioners Noah Lockley and Smokey Parrish dissenting, the county commission Aug. 5 OKd contracts with 2K Web Group, which handles internet marketing and the TDC website; Bay Media Services, which does marketing and design; Forgotten Coast TV Inc., which handles local television programming; and Allyn Associates Inc., which handles administration. After the vote, Parrish made clear his objection was limited to the administrative services contract. Im not opposed to the service contracts other than the administration, he said. I think the TDC can save $100,000 and reallocate the money to more important priorities if we brought that in-house. Lockley opposed re-awarding all four contracts without a formal bid process. His criticism came after Commissioner Pinki Jackel pushed for approval of the contracts. Before voting on the staff hirings, the commissioners unanimously approved awarding $120,000 in sustaining grants to seven area nonpro ts. Sustaining grants of $20,000 were given for next year to the Dixie Theatre; Apalachicolas Raney By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com After three public hearings and much discussion, Franklin County now has a law governing debris left unattended on St. George Island beach. At the Aug. 5 county meeting, commissioners voted 4-1 to pass the Leave No Trace ordinance, which creates rules about beach debris. Commissioner Noah Lockley opposed. The main purpose of the law is to protect endangered sea turtles that nest on island beaches, but human safety and aesthetics are also factors in creating the new rules. The new ordinance drew widespread attention. USA Today ran a news brief to announce it, and a chat room about the topic appeared on the popular travel-oriented webpage TripAdvisor.com almost immediately after the law passed. One post warned, This will not end well! but eight other postings applauded the ordinance. As the county hearing began, County Planner Alan Pierce displayed an online petition with more than 1,100 signatures collected in support of the ordinance. The packet presented to commissioners included photos of clutter on the beach. The current version applies only to public beaches on St. George Island. County Attorney Michael Shuler explained the terms of the new law. At this point, the main issue is By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com At their regular Aug. 5 meeting, county commissioners called for an independent audit of the Franklin County Senior Citizens Council on the countys east end, the governing body for the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center. Ive had a lot of concerns from people, said Chairman Cheryl Sanders, who introduced the discussion. Sometimes we have to bring things to the front. I feel I would be remiss not to do it. She said the county had budgeted for the senior center, with the required 2 percent reduction. I have had some concerns and complaints from the public that theyre not doing what they told the board they would do for the amount of allocation of money that they have received, Sanders said. I dont have a bone to pick with anybody. I think in the interest of things, it would be best for us to request an audit of the Franklin County Senior Citizens Council and have it done before Oct. 1 so we can see where the moneys going to. I would like to see the county auditor, Mr. Ralph Roberson and his group do the audit, she said. Commissioner William Massey, whose motion to request an independent audit by Roberson and Associates was approved unanimously, suggested money was missing. Theres a lot of money gone, he said. Id like to have all the receipts for the roof and everything they spend money on. There was $68,000 in Drone facility opens in Carrabelle By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com More than 100 people got a peek at the future Aug. 7 when the Gulf Unmanned System Center (GUSC) had an open house. The new Carrabelle-based rm welcomed visitors in grand style. The activities centered on three drone-manufacturing rms that came to demonstrate their products. An unmanned system, or drone, is an air, water or land craft that operates remotely without a pilot. The term drone was coined by the U.S. military. In 1935, the British had developed an early airborne unmanned system, the de Havilland Queen Bee, for use in target practice. American engineers copied the machine and dubbed it the drone, male equivalent of a County requests senior center audit See SENIOR CENTER A7 Unmanned drones have developed further and faster and will become a major economic in uence over the next decade.

Local A2 | The Times Thursday, August 14, 2014 House Museum, which is administered by the Apala chicola Area Historical So ciety; the Carrabelle Light house Association, which oversees the Crooked Riv er Lighthouse; the Camp Gordon Johnston Mu seum; and the St George Lighthouse Association. Grants of $10,000 were presented to the Apalachicola Center of History, Culture and the Arts, and the Car rabelle History Museum. Diana Prick ett, representing the TDC board, said the only change to the grants for next year was that organizations had to be able to match at least half of the grant, so that for those receiving $20,000, this means they have to have at $10,000 extra in come coming in, she said. Prickett said all seven organizations said they could meet that require ment. Hopefully, if the 2 percent referendum goes through, we can look at it a little differently and maybe come up with something different, she said. Commissioners plan to place a referendum on the November ballot that, if approved by voters, would double the bed tax to 4 percent and bring in more than $900,000 estimated additional revenue per year to TDC coffers. Jackel then moved, and Commissioner William Massey seconded, for ap proval of the four service contracts, and dissension began, including questions from Clerk of Courts Mar cia Johnson about the tim ing of the move. Prickett said the TDC on Aug. 1 unanimously approved recom mending the four contracts. Every things been going good with every body, and nobody has come to us to say theyre inter ested in bidding on any of the service agreements, she said. We gured it seemed to be going good, wed just leave it like it is for another year. Lockley did not sup port the move. I think I want the administration to go out for bids, he said. Yall approving stuff by the TDC board. The public got some interest in this, he said. They ought to be able to know when these contracts are coming up and be able to either le on them or whatever they want to do. You just cant go by the (TDC) board. Prickett said the con tracts come due this time every year, and weve never had anybody show up at our meetings thats showed any interest in any of these different service contracts. Lockley said theyre still supposed to be adver tised and given a chance. If need be they go forward, and not automatically go through. Jackel asked for a legal opinion from County Attor ney Michael Shuler, who said though bids are re quired on matters of tan gible personal property in excess of $10,000, there is no county policy on service contracts. Youve done it on a case-by-case basis, he said. Johnson said it ap peared the Allyn contract had been changed, but Jackel said the terms of the existing contract re mained in place. That contract was pulled and is not being used, Jackel said. This is the same contract from last year. Johnson said during the current scal year, the contract had an estimated range for billable hours es timated to be between 100 and 160 per month. Dur ing the year, those were exceeded, and the board needed a budget amend ment, she said. Johnson asked for a stipulation that the annual budgeted amount of $90,000 not be exceeded. Thats it, unless they come back to you, she said. Jackel agreed to amend her motion to put a ceil ing on the contract, which calls for payment at a rate of $42 per billable hour. Johnson also brought up the issue of where the TDC administrator pres ently resides and what his announced plans had been. My understanding was that Curt Blair had said he was stepping down, John son said. Hes not living in Franklin County, is he right now? Why do we want to extend the contract, to someone whos not living in Franklin County at this point in time? Hes not here (at this meeting). Is he going to be able to do what the TDC requires when hes not even in town? Jackel replied that we certainly havent seen any lack of service pro vided from him in recent months. He would be here today except hes at a con tinuing education class the TDC recommended for marketing training. Its the second or third year of a three-year course. Prickett claried that Blair did say that he was not going to renew. What he told us at the (Aug. 1) meeting was that so many people had come to him and said Please, dont stop doing it. Youre doing a good job, please think about continuing. He said so many people came to him and asked him to con tinue for one more year. Johnson noted that it seemed the board was tak ing quick action, with only a few days review. Last year, we didnt even look at these con tracts until the middle meeting in September, she said. Youve got time. You dont have to act today if you dont want to. We didnt get these materials last week. You dont have to make a decision today if you feel pressured. The TDCs regularly scheduled meeting for Aug. 6 had been moved to Aug. 4. In pressing for a vote on her motion, Jackel said that the TDC had voted unanimously at its meet ing the day before. This comes with their full rec ommendations, and we all discussed it lengthily yes terday, and there were no negative comments about any of the management or any of the contracts what soever, she said. Lockley said though some on the TDC board be lieve Blair has done a good job, theres other people think hes not. I think they should have a chance to put in their application. Aint no need to making the thing look crooked. The board passed the motion, and afterward, Massey asked Prickett whether she had heard of interest in the contracts from anyone. I had somebody I thought was going to call you, he said. Prickett said no one had come forward. tourists on St. George Island, he said. There was not a consensus from the public or the board on whether we should include both public and private property. This is a compro mise so we can have an or dinance with the best shot of passing. We can always come back and you can ex pand it or contract it and amend it in whatever fash ion the public and board think is appropriate. The law, which took ef fect upon passage, stipu lates that year round, be tween 7 p.m. and 9 a.m., all equipment must be moved from the sandy portion of the beach to the edge of beachfront vegetation or the toe of the dunes. Unat tended holes also must be lled in. Anything left on the beach during prohib ited hours will be tagged, conscated and destroyed at the county landll. Shuler said during an initial educational phase of enforcement, there would be two tags posted on ma terial in violation. A county employee will place a yel low warning tag on debris, and after an as-yet unde termined period of time, the tag will be replaced by a red one. If a county fol low-up crew nds the de bris still in violation, it will be conscated. Collection crews will maintain a log of items collected. The items then will be transported to the landll, where they will be weighed and destroyed. Once an item is collect ed, it will not be returned to the owner. Shuler said this policy is largely because of the difculty of determin ing who owns items that carry no identifying tags. Shuler said a widely discussed, important issue was how to deal with busi nesses on the public beach. Some businesses own property adjacent to the beach, and others are on the public beach but own no property. Under the new ordi nance, all beach busi nesses must obtain a per mit from the planning and building ofce dening the area where they can make transactions. Companies renting beach equipment are re sponsible for making sure the beach is clear of their products and other equip ment during hours man dated by the ordinance. Rented equipment will be conscated and destroyed if it is in violation. Lockley expressed con cern visitors might not un derstand the law or wont want to remove their equip ment from the beach every night. Pierce said most Pan handle counties have passed a similar ordinance, and many visitors will have encountered beach debris laws elsewhere. Shuler said the ordi nance would be enforced by county employees, includ ing parks and recreation and sheriffs deputies. Lockley said the St. George Island Turtle Pa trol, a volunteer organiza tion, already tags beach de bris. How will they tell the tags apart? he asked. Shuler suggested the turtle volunteers be asked to stop tagging beach debris. Commissioner Pinki Jackel said a website should be created to in form the public about the ordinance. She suggested money from a fund award ed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife could be used both to edu cate visitors and to pay for a part-time enforcement ofcer for six months. She also said printed informa tion could be provided to vacation rental companies and visitor centers. Commissioner Smokey Parrish asked how en forcement would be paid for when the grant money is depleted. In my opin ion, it should come from TDC (Tourist Develop ment Council) funds to pick up after the visitors and people weve asked to come here and spend their dollars, he said. I dont think the taxpayers ought to have to fund that. In a telephone inter view, Pierce said the Bay County TDC is funding educational materials and staff to support its beach debris program. Parrish warned that the county must take care not to offend visitors. We dont want to discourage our tourists from coming to our area, he said. They make a huge economic impact. We need diversication in our economy. Pierce has been charged with creating signs for rental homes and desig nated beach walkovers. Signs for rental properties will incorporate informa tion about the countys turtle lighting ordinance in addition to the new beach debris ordinance. Before the nal vote, several island residents commented on the pro posed law. Some opposed it. Everybody wants to pass feel-good legislation, but I dont think govern ment needs to be involved in this, said Mason Bean, past president of the St. George Island Civic Club. I dont know how the county could afford it. The answer is educa tion. Trash used to be our biggest problem. It still is, but more people are pick ing up after themselves, and its getting better. These tourists come back year after year, and it will get better, Bean said. Every time we pass more rules and more govern ment, we lose a little more freedom. Rose Drye, wife of Bruce Drye, the St. George Island turtle permit holder, said, I have been a fulltime is land resident for 35 years. I work with the turtle volun teers. I walk the beach ev ery morning for six months out of the year. I have seen the disrupted nesting ac tivity. I have seen turtle hatchlings that have been trapped in peoples posses sions and died. You have before you an internet petition with al most 1,200 signatures from a wide cross-section of people supporting the ordi nance, she said. Its not just the turtles; its a mat ter of public safety. People fall into the holes and trip over the guidewires and walk into volleyball nets and they get hurt. This is the most vis ible beach on the island. We want to make a good impression. People want beauty when they come here. After the ordinance passed, Steve Harris, a member of the board of directors of the St. George Plantation, said an attorney is in the process of amend ing the Plantations rules to reect the countys new beach debris ordinance.

Local The Times | A3 Thursday, August 14, 2014 queen bee. The day began at the corporate headquarters at 206 St. James Ave. N.W., where CEO Bruce McCor mack greeted his guests and gave an overview of his plans and progress. The facility in downtown Carra belle, the former Gulf State Community Bank, was pur chased in June. GUSC will provide a venue for commercial manufacturers to test small robot drones, weigh ing less than 55 pounds, on land, water and air. McCor mack said eventually, the rm also will provide sup port for manufacture and marketing of unmanned systems. Unmanned drones have developed further and faster and will become a major economic inuence over the next decade, he said. A swimming drone for treasure hunting After the opening pre sentation, visitors crossed U.S. 98 to witness a demon stration of the VideoRay by David Copenhaven, of IPS NexGen. VideoRay, a swimming drone that can be tted with sonar, cameras, grabbing devices and cutters, also can drive along the surface of a boats hull to inspect it. The device has been used to inspect bridges, under water cables and pipelines, and could be deployed to search for mines or to seek submerged bodies, vessels or treasure. Copenhaven said one of the newest and most popular applications is the detection of submerged petroleum. VideoRay has two verti cal thrusters and one hori zontal thruster. It is teth ered to a 1,000-foot cord, which supplies power to the robot and transmits data back to the control center, where it can be viewed or transferred to a remote connection. The buoyancy of both the robot and cable can be adjusted for salt or fresh water and the type of work to be performed. On board lamps produce 3600 lumens of light, but with sonar, can operate in zero visibility. VideoRay can lift up to 60 pounds with its thrusters; objects weighing up to 200 pounds can be clamped and manually dragged to the surface using the tether. VideoRay is piloted from the surface using a simple set of controls including a joystick. The basic unit sells for about $40,000 or about $80,000 tted with sonar. Co penhaven said more than 2,500 VideoRays are already in use. After the demonstration of underwater technology, the group, using about 60 vehicles, caravanned to the operations center on John McInnis Road under the watchful eye of sheriffs deputies and Carrabelle police who joined forces to make sure demonstrations and transport ran smoothly. The operations center, built to house the failed GreenSteel Homes manu facturing plant, is 64,000 square feet. When Mc Cormack leased the metal structure from the city, he promised to make repairs and upgrades and the build ing, which had fallen into disrepair, appeared neat, parking lots cleared and everything inside neat and orderly. GUSC Technology Vice President Larry Harvey welcomed everyone to the operations center. He said before choosing Carrabelle, he had toured Florida look ing for a site for the drone testing facility. He said the human capital in Frank lin County was important to his choice along with the tremendous support from government and the community. The three visiting com panies, NexGen, HoverFly and Prioria, gave presen tations of their products and the future of drone technology. NexGen presenters said their equipment is designed to facilitate synergistic op erations using a combina tion of airborne, land-based and aquatic robots that can communicate through a central command center. NexGen also manufactures a mobile command center, housed in a trailer. HoverFly manufactures both tethered and free-y ing, aerial drones. CEO Al Ducharme is an electronic engineer. His tethered drones have a 148-foot cord that supplies power and carries data back to central control. They remain below the 150-feet altitude where they would be required to carry lights. A tethered drone also has the advan tage of a constant power supply, so there is no need to carry fuel. If the tether breaks, power is lost, and the drone will not y away and be lost. Ducharme said tethered drones could be at tached to a tractor or other vehicle for use in precision agriculture or other large area applications. Tethered vs. untethered drones At the operations center, Ducharme demonstrated the LiveSky drone, a teth ered aerial unmanned sys tem for surveillance, public safety, agriculture or inspec tion. It has a control system similar to that of VideoRay. Ducharme said no train ing is required to operate LiveSky. As the crowd watched, he launched it to hover rst at 5 feet; then 10 and then up to the full length of a 40foot tether. The rotary-wing drone appeared stable as it hovered. Then, without warning, it dipped in the direction of the operations center. Ducharme was able to stop its descent and stabi lize it. He said he was having trouble with the units builtin GPS receiver, possibly because of sunspot activity. Again, without warning, the drone suddenly dove away from the operations center and towards a wetland. The motion was so violent, the tether snapped and the en gine shut down. Employees of GUSC quickly retrieved the fallen drone, which suf fered only minor cosmetic damage. Thats what we are here to do, test drones and perfect the technology, Mc Cormack said later. Ducha rme said the LiveSky unit is a prototype of a design that is ready for commercial production. Bryan Franker said his company, Prioria, specializ es in both rotary and xedwing aircraft that operate without a tether. Priorias drones would be deployed in surveillance, emergency management, search and rescue, wildre control and hazardous material moni toring, mapping, utility and railroad inspection and land management. Franker brought along a number of designs includ ing the Maveric, an unte thered aerial drone that weighs less than 3 pounds and folds into a case the size of a mailing tube. He said about 1,500 of the units are in use worldwide. The Mav eric, designed to be carried by a soldier or other opera tor, unfolds automatically when withdrawn from the case and is literally thrown into ight. It is battery-op erated and has a range of 6 to 9 miles. Training standards under consideration Everyone agreed one of the biggest problems facing manufacturers of free-ying aerial drones is what kind of training should be required for operators. The fear is a drone could collide with a manned aircraft. Frank Woodward of NexGen said there have been many near misses. In the U.S., free-ying drones may only be oper ated by public safety orga nizations or universities. Operators must obtain a Certicate of Authorization (COA) from the Federal Aviation Administration specifying where, when and how the drone may be used. A COA normally takes 90 to 120 days to secure. What training should be required to operate a freeying drone commercially is a gray area. Woodward said most people operat ing them now have military training, and when the FAA species training guide lines, it is likely some opera tors, especially those using larger unmanned aircraft, will need a pilots license. Ducharme said train ing of operators for public safety agencies can take one or two years. Its a deal killer, he said. NexGens Copenhaven said industry leaders are working with the FAA to develop training guidelines that are reasonable but keep everyone safe. Operators of tethered y ing drones are not required to have any training, be cause these are not legally considered to be aircraft. Ducharme said the huge GUSC operations center could be a valuable asset for developing untethered aerial drones and training operators because the craft could legally be own within the structure. Visitors to GUSC seemed pleased by Carra belles newest business. I am impressed and very ex cited, City Commissioner Charlotte Schneider said. Im looking forward to this creating even more jobs. A ninth-grader in school now will have an incentive to stay in and study hard. Commissioner Brenda LaPaz echoed her praise. The building looks fabu lous, she said. I am ex cited about this. David Butler, who chairs the citys Economic Devel opment Council, said, I think it has potential. They are planting seeds here, and we are going to put the water on them. McCormack said GUSC has fullled its promise to the city to employ 10 Franklin County residents full-time. An organization chart provided to the press shows three GUSC vice presidents: Mark Milliken, business de velopment; Larry Harvey, technology; and Maria Pe terson, corporate relations. Carrabelle resident Lisa Spooner has been tapped as chief nancial ofcer. In addition, there are 11 posi tions including an admin istrative assistant who has not been hired. Clint Ivey heads up sales. Jeff Wren is range operations manager. Jason Millender is facilities manager, and Sissy Ivey is human resources direc tor. Gregory Newman is in charge of aerial operations. Camron Brownell is se nior range technician, and Heather Bishop is educa tional director. Monty Vogue and Patrick Fleming are both listed as operations fa cility staff, and Jeff Watts is proposed operations facility instructor. A training room with computer terminals has been installed on the sec ond oor of the headquar ters building, and all GUSC employees are enrolled in an online course in indus trial operations offered by Gulf Coast State College. The group meets for class from 6-10 p.m. every Mon day and Wednesday. The class is paid for by GUSC, and students obtain regular credit hours for the study. Next, employees will receive six weeks of train ing in fundamentals of unmanned systems from civil engineer John Watts, who will travel to Frank lin County. McCormack said after that course, Sea School of Panama City will offer captains training in the GUSC classroom. That course will be opened to the public. At least 10 students are needed. Interested parties should contact Sea School at www.seaschool. com.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINION www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, August 14, 2014 A Page 4 Section Market downturns, soup lines and Jimmy Braddock MARGARET R. M c DOWELL Arbor Outlook Its a hard way to nd out that trouble is real from Hickory Wind as recorded by The Byrds A characters movie arc is how an actor changes and evolves during a lm. The most common arc is one that features a character who rises quickly to the top, takes a tumble, then slowly regains stature, until he eventually reaches his zenith as credits roll. Or at least nishes the lm in a better position than when he started. Boxing is the last sport I would ever watch, either televised or in person. But minus the pugilism, I love the movie Cinderella Man. Released in 2005, starring Russell Crowe, Renee Zellweger and Paul Giamatti, and directed by Ron Howard, the lm depicts the incredible true story of boxer James J. Braddock. Professionally successful and personally wealthy, Braddock loses his life savings and home during the Great Depression. Then a series of bad breaks, including a broken hand, render him completely penniless. Braddock accepts government relief and at one low juncture, appears hat in hand to the boxing commission to ask for a handout. The reason? He needs $37 to get the lights and heat turned back on in the familys one-room, cold water at in New Jersey. Eventually Braddocks hand heals, and the Popular Battler claws his way back, regains the heavyweight title, and rebuilds his familys personal balance sheet. Market movements, like the arcs of our favorite lm gures, do not trend upward without interruption. Sometimes markets are hit with a roundhouse right and temporarily stumble. And this is a good thing. Markets which trend upward continually without ceasing beget securities which become overvalued. Then these same markets are indeed more vulnerable to a drastic correction. Markets tumbled on July 31, when the S&P 500 lost just less than 2 percent in one day. Several factors converged: wage increases, the Argentine default controversy, and a 4 percent second quarter growth report (thats a good thing, of course, but might indicate the Federal Reserve will end its arti cial stimulation sooner than expected; thus, the negative effects on markets). Wage increases certainly are also good news for wage earners, but might foretell pressure to raise interest rates to offset potential in ation. So again, that was perceived as a negative for markets. A report in The Wall Street Journal stated recently that market downturns have served as a buying opportunity for long-term investors, but that many short-term investors were selling. These market dips also remind us that like the arc of our favorite movie characters, investments do not continually increase in value unabated; that the most important thing is to be in a better place when you nish your investing process than you were at the beginning. Just like Jimmy Braddock. Margaret R.

CORRECTION There was an omission in the July 31 Apalachicola/Carrabelle Times standalone photograph Aman to refurbish Carrabelle monument about the re nishing of the American ag and eagle statue in Carrabelles Veterans Park. In addition to Fred Amans volunteer work repairing and repainting the statues, Mike Marshall of Marshalls Marine donated more than $200 worth of paint and his crews time to do the actual painting of the ag. Teachers explore insight into poverty on Day 1 By Elinor Mount-Simmons Special to the Times This past Monday, bright and early in the morning, about 110 faculty and staff members of Franklin County School heeded the ringing of the school bell at 8 a.m. and eagerly gathered in the schools cafetorium to kick off a brand new and exciting school year. After brie y greeting familiar faces, welcoming new ones, and receiving a welcoming message from Principal Kris Bray and Assistant Principal Harolyn Walker, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast prepared by the Franklin County Teachers Association, a meal this professional organization under the leadership of Catherine Wood, has graciously offered for several years now. With several new faculty members joining the Seahawk Family, as well as most of the veteran faculty and staff members not having seen each other since the close of the previous school year, Laura King, former elementary teacher and now our new intervention specialist, led us in a special welcoming activity. Through this icebreaker, we met and welcomed three new elementary teachers Carol Allen, rst grade; Christy Thompson, second grade; and Helen Wilson, third grade. In middle school, weve added Kendyl Hardy, eighth grade science, Kati Hathcock, eighth grade language arts, as well as Roy Carroll, math. This trio is no stranger to the Franklin County School district; Hardy is a 2010 FCS graduate, Hathcock graduated from the Apalachicola High School in 2007, and Carroll previously was a district-level employee and middle school math teacher just a couple years ago. When Hardy was asked how it felt to return as an employee to a school she graduated from only four years ago, she said it was surreal, but exciting and she is really looking forward to it all. Hardy also commented that it is a lot different teaching alongside teachers who were her teachers a few years ago but I have no doubt that she, Hathcock and all the novice faculty members will be a fabulous addition to the Seahawk faculty and staff. On the high school level, additions include James Chapman, math and science; Bruce Hubbs, ESE (Exceptional Student Education); Jason Luquis, Spanish; and Keilan McWhorter, science. Hardy and Hathcock will also be doing double-duty and handle some high school classes, too, with Hardy teaching ninth grade science and Hathcock teaching ninth grade language arts. The FCS returnees have already embraced the new Seahawks, and at the Meet & Greet event this Thursday afternoon, August 14 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m, you can do so, too. One big change for the 2014-15 school year is the complete closure of the Franklin County Learning Center and the moving of its last tenants, the Alternative School and the HeadStart program, to the main campus. So for the rst time since the Franklin County School opened for business, all students receiving a traditional public school education in Franklin County will get such on the same campus. With this change, veteran teacher Angeline Stanley and her trusty aide, Wanda Brannan will now both be on the main campus, with Stanley assigned to the elementary segment. A brand new area for her, Stanley, with more than 20 years of teaching experience, says she is up to the challenge. Also coming over with this closure is staffer Joy Towns, who will work in the front of ce area handling a multitude of tasks. Another veteran teacher embracing a new area is Barbara Lee, long-time high school teacher, who will be working alongside Audrey Gay and Melanie Humble in fth grade. Lee, who will soon add another grandchild to her personal fold, has worked in several areas as a Franklin County teacher and said of the upcoming year that she is excited about it and looking forward to a great year. Several other changes include the expansion of the Credit Recovery Program, which adds Sharon Solomon, David Meyer now handling the Alternative program, Mike Todd working in high school math, Kay Cadwallader leaving pre-K and becoming the elementary reading coach, and Tammy Sasnett, formerly the ESOL (English as a Second Language) leader, returning to pre-K as its director. Monday, Day 1 of PrePlanning was spent primarily preparing ourselves for the eager children who will enter our classrooms next week and this was done using several methods. Thanks to tremendous help from Franklins Promise, one of these preparation methods was a poverty simulation activity, held in the multipurpose building involving faculty, staff and some administrators. Facilitated by Franklins Promise staffer Desiree Trest, also a former Seahawk Class of 2009, and utilizing the message derived from well-known author Ruby Paynes book A Framework for Understanding Poverty, the activity was an incredibly valuable learning experience that involved role-playing, allowing us to gain signi cant insight into the lives of some of our children and their families. Although it was pretending on our parts, the exercise gave us a powerful perspective that will help us even more so in our interactions with our students. Joe Taylor, leader of Franklins Promise, was assisted by members of this organization, as well as other community members and we greatly appreciate him and his team for this wonderful experience, which also included a follow-up debrie ng and lunch. After a day lled with informational meetings on a variety of topics, our of cial rst day back concluded with Afternoon Tea, hosted by Nina Marks, our school superintendent, who was assisted by Debra Fletcher, our culinary department head. Marks and her sister had baked cookies, each iced with a Seahawk logo. I am excited about another great year, said Marks. I think everyone was pleasantly surprised that they returned to a more relaxing day then theyve previously had on rst days. She further added that we met and greeted our 10 new hires and they will t right in with the faculty and staff, enhancing our wonderful Seahawk Family. Until next week, keep soaring.

The Times | A5 Thursday, August 14, 2014 There was a lot going on in the county in August 60 years ago. Everyone was preparing for the county fair to be held September 30. Miss Miriam Edwards was chair of the exhibiting committee and Bill Zorn was general chairman. A larger tent was ordered due to increased premiums and a separate poultry tent was planned for the rst time. The 4H Club was preparing a poultry show. Areas of competition included ve Japanese persimmons; ve-stalks green sugar cane; three-stalks red sugar cane; a display of fresh vegetables not over 3x3 feet square such as greens, peas, carrots, egg plant, okra, etc.; one quart kumquats in a glass jar; one grapefruit; one cushaw; one clear glass jar any variety pickles or relish; one pair pillow cases embroidered; one luncheon set or table cloth, crocheted; one hook rug; cypress knee or driftwood article; single cockerel, single hen; bantams (pairs); one goose; one rabbit. Does anybody remember when the last Franklin County fair took place? If so, please contact the Times at 653-8868 or contact Lois Swoboda at firstname.lastname@example.org. The following selection of articles from The Times Aug. 13, 1954 edition should give you a feel for some other things people were thinking about in 1954. Channel cut through on Wednesday The cut through St. George Island is thru. Those are the words that this county has been waiting for many years. The McCullough Dredge let the Gulf water into the channel at 11:18 on Tuesday night August 10 with a good array of spectators. Two boatloads of people from this city were there, having gone to the island in boats belonging to Fred Sawyer Jr. and Mannie Brash. However, the dredging is not completed, as they still have to run out into the Gulf approximately 300 feet before the work is nished. This dredging has created a lot of interest in folks hereabout and almost daily, somebody has been on the scene, watching the activities. However, there are a number of people who cannot get to the island and it is believed that if some boat owner would start an excursion he could make him a protable sum taking passengers to the island. Tasso Russo slugged last Saturday night Last Saturday night, about 9:30, as Tasso Russo entered his home, unknown assailants slugged him on the head, inicting a gash on his forehead and caused him to have a very badly bruised eye. It is believed that the motive for the slugging was robbery, but the person or persons who did the work escaped without taking the money from Mr. Russos person. Ofcers investigating the crime arrested three suspects but were later released. Mr. Russo says he has no idea who the persons were. Too late to classify Well, it seems that the Flying Saucer season is on again. Im still one of the few individuals that hasnt seen one. Since I last mentioned the subject, I have listened to lectures on the subject, read half a dozen books dealing with the mysterious unidentied objects appearing in the skies throughout the world and watched diligently to no avail. However, I am convinced that they do exist and believe that sooner or later we will have the answer. A press report from Delray Beach last week tells of ying saucer sightings over the Atlantic. Getting closer to home, my son-in-law vacationing at the Gulf Beaches reports sighting a strange light in the sky over the Gulf. He is a pretty levelheaded chap and not inclined to go off Half-cocked about anything. He watched the light thinking it might be a star or meteor. It was close and too bright for a star and, unlike a meteor, it traveled across the sky in a horizontal position wobbling as it moved. No sound of any kind could be heard. In Jacksonville, a good friend of mine, an ofcial of the Florida Greyhound Lines, sighted a weird object traveling over the St. Johns River. From Miami comes a report from another reputable ofcial of a radio station of saucers seen in the area. I have just nished reading Flying Saucers from Outer Space written by Major Donald Keyhoe of the U.S. Marine Corps. His amazing book is based on ofcial reports of the U. S. Air force, and the Department of Defense in Washington credits him with being a reasonable accurate reporter who has cooperated effectively with the Air Force in its study of unidentied ying objects. The Air Force and its investigating agency, Project Bluebook are aware of Major Keyhoes conclusion that ying saucers are from another planet and does not deny that this possibility exists. Some of the personnel believe that they may be strange natural phenomenon completely unknown to us but that if the apparently controlled maneuvers reported by many competent observers are correct, then the only remaining explanation is the interplanetary answer. Hundreds and hundreds of sightings have been reported from every section of the globe. Major Keyhoe has personally contacted and interviewed many of the people responsible for these reports. The pattern is uniform enough to indicate that whatever was seen in the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Korea, Austria, Germany and elsewhere is of a similar nature. The behavior of these ying objects is similar and would indicate that the Earth itself is under careful study and observation by intelligent beings who are concerned with life on this planet. It is not unreasonable to assume that life exists on other planets and that inhabitants of such planets have advanced in knowledge to a point where they have been able to conquer the problem of space3 travel. It is equally reasonable to assume that before attempting to land or contact us they would gather all possible data before attempting a landing. It is interesting to note that as far as the United States is concerned, most sightings have occurred over military bases particularly those identied with atomic research activity. This seems to hold true in other countries, indicating that our visitors from outer space are alert to our military activities and are interested in the progress we have made. It does not appear that those strange visitors are unfriendly; on the contrary, they avoid contact and get out of the way in a hurry when we try to intercept them. They have paced our airlines and military planes on numerous occasions only to speed off at such a rapid rate that pursuit is impossible. Like you, I dont know the answer, but I am convinced that there is one. It certainly feeds the imagination and Im sure that it is nothing any of us need be afraid of. The following week, there was excitement in Carrabelle when a prominent citizen was nearly killed in a freak accident. Deputy Curley Messer nearly drowns Monday Deputy sheriff Curley Messer escaped drowning and electrocution Monday in an unusual accident. Curley was working with an electric drill on the dock when the extension cord dropped into the water thereby shocking him so severely he could not release the drill, and knocked him into the water. His wife, who was standing nearby, grabbed a stick and knocked the cord from the socket, then lifted his body from the water. He was taken immediately to Tallahassee hospital.

TIMOTHY BEYRER Tammy Taunton Ive just spent the longest, most confusing and scariest week of my life. Ive had to keep talking to myself, over and over, to just breathe. The only thing more overwhelming than the loss of everything was the outpouring of love and support of friends in the community. I almost forgot I was born and raised here in Apalachicola. I have friends on boats, in the swamp, on the poorest side of town, on the richest side of town, and even in people Ive never met. I dont think I would have made it without you all. Thank you for everything; 48 years in Franklin County makes you a survivor. Also, thank God for churchgoing, praying Mommas! Tammy Taunton Mr. David Wayne Glass passed away on Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, at his residence. Born in Apalachicola on Dec. 21, 1957, he was a lifelong oysterman and resident of Eastpoint. He was preceded in death by his mother, Annie Glass, and brother, John L. Glass, Jr.(JL). He is survived by his wife Donna Glass; daughter Tonya Creamer and husband Daniel; granddaughters, Magen and Emily Creamer; father John L Glass and wife Rachel; brothers and sisters Mayce Rogers and husband Boe, Rodney Glass and wife Lisa, Brenda Henry and husband Mark, Joy Burkett and husband Steve, Leon Glass and wife Angela, Crystal Cooper and husband Rusty; and numerous nieces and nephews. Funeral services was held on Monday morning, Aug. 11, at Deliverance Tabernacle with interment to follow in Eastpoint Cemetery with the Rev. Larry Hateld and the Rev. Bobby Shiver ofciating. Asked to serve as pallbearers are Charles Brannon, Chris Estes, Henry Jackson, Earl Moses, Kelley Shiver, Richard Brim, Jr., with Charles Hicks being honorary. Services are provided by Comforter Funeral Home. David Wayne Glass Obituaries Card of THANKS In loving MEMORY there, and its gone. (County Plan ner) Alan (Pierce) and I have gone over permits. Sanders said the public is con cerned about the forthrightness of the process, and any time the public is concerned, the commission needs to be as well. Rather than have a blemish, Id rather go ahead and just ask them, she said. That doesnt mean they will do it. Roberson said Monday he would act on the countys request, but had to not yet taken a look at the details of the assignment. He said the cost would depend on the scope of the audit, and he wanted to make sure the roads all paved, in terms of approvals and directions, between the county and the private Florida nonprot corporation. Its March 2014 ling with the state shows ofcers of the Frank lin County Senior Citizens Council Inc. are Ed Pattillo as president, Sue Reed as vice president and Carolyn Spivey as treasurer. As an eligible nongovernmental organiza tion, they are set to receive $17,683 from the county for the next scal year, down 2 percent from $18,043 this year. One of the things that Im con cerned about, and I know this for a fact, is that they said they served so many meals a month for the people at x amount of dollars, and I know that there was a month or two months, maybe more, when they didnt serve those meals, Sanders said. In a telephone interview, Times columnist Jim Welsh, who regularly attends lunch at the Senior Center, said until last May, lunch was served there every Thursday. But in May, he said, the senior citizens council announced that, for the summer, lunches would only be served the rst Thursday of each month. Welsh said the reason given for cutting back on lunches was reduced attendance. He said average atten dance at the luncheon had dropped from several dozen to about 15. He also said the price of lunch at the Senior Center has increased from $3 to $5 over the summer. Before we go into a new scal year, a budget cycle, I would like for that to be cleared up for the public to know that (the Senior Citizens Council is) doing business like they are supposed to or they are not, Sanders said. Then, that will deter mine what we do. I dont know what this will turn up, but Im just saying, as a commis sioner, given the complaints from the public that Im getting, I have to do something, she said. I say you are xing to open a can of worms, and somebodys go ing shing, Massey said. I want to know where the money is because they are broke. In a telephone interview, Pierce said the building permits referred to by Massey were related to a new roof ordered by Pattillo for the Se nior Citizens Center, at 201 N.W. Ave. F in Carrabelle. The estimated val ue given on the permit was $80,000. On Sept. 26, 2013, Gene Strick land of Lanark Village was issued a building permit to reroof the Senior Citizens Center. Because he is not a licensed roofer, he was listed as a subcontractor. On the same date, a permit was issued for the signature of the contractor, Dustin Lord of Garrison Design and Construction Inc., a Tallahassee rm. But the permit was not signed at the time. Pierce said Strickland pre sented a letter from Garrison when he requested the permits. The let ter, not specic about dates, said Strickland was a subcontractor for Garrison. On Oct. 10, Pattillo signed an agreement to pay Metal Roong Sales LLC of Tallahassee $30,900 as a deposit on materials to build the roof. Pierce said Planning and Build ing began receiving complaints about the quality of the work on the roof. The planning ofce then contacted Garrison and advised them that as contractor, they should inspect the project. A Garrison spokesperson told them Strickland had only subcontracted on a single job for the licensed roofer and was not acting as a subcontractor on the work at the Senior Center, Pierce said. On Oct. 17, Pattillo faxed a let ter to Zoning Administrator Rachel Ward asking that the stop work order be lifted. The letter named Garrison Design as the primary contractor. In a letter to Ward dated Oct. 24, Debbie Smith, vice president of nance and administration for Garrison Design, said Garrison would sign the permit for the senior center roof and designated Jen kins Roong of Tallahassee as the subcontractor. On Oct. 25, Elliott Jenkins of Jenkins Roong and Dustin Lord of Garrison Design signed building permits, and Jenkins completed work on the roof.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star.com Thursday, August 14, 2014 OUTD OO RS www.apalachtimes.com Section A By F RANK SARGEANT firstname.lastname@example.org Yep, its much like shing in a sauna, except with occasional bolts of lightning thrown in. But August marks the beginning of the fall redsh run on the west coast, and that makes it well worth deserting the air-conditioning for a few hours to get in on the action. Most anglers pursue redsh in the 18 to 27 inch slot; these sh are just under spawning size, which is the reason for the upper limit those which reach adulthood about age 4 become the spawners which renew the population. But the big attraction of slot reds is that they spend much of their time in water anywhere from ankle deep to about 4 feet, making them ideal sight-shing targets. Tailers are a special attraction; on low tides, reds often tip up to root crabs and shrimp out of the bottom, causing their tails to wave above the surface. Alert anglers can spot a tail at a hundred yards, and this allows them to pole, paddle or wade into range and make a presentation to a visible sh. Shallow-water reds are extremely wary and its a test of skill to make the cast accurately, work the lure just right and fool the sh as you watch it, but for many this is the most exciting type of angling. Plastic jerkbaits rigged weedless are the favorite lure for this action, but topwaters and weedless spoons also work well, as do yrod streamers. Some of the vast ats of the western Panhandle are ideal for this type of action, and the back side of many of the barrier islands all the way from Apalach to Pensacola have good areas. Good ats typically have lots of turtle grass, with slightly deeper sloughs of grassy area between shallower white sand bars. Fishing is often best on the lowest low tides, which occur on the new and full moons each month. On Panhandle waters, a strong north or northwest wind on a falling tide during one of these strong moon periods is prime time; it pushes the water out and makes for extreme low water where redsh tails are easy to see. Reds often settle into potholes in the ats and around docks, as well as over rockpiles and wrecks in the open bays, as well, and in these locations live bait is the ticket; a live pinsh or shrimp under a popping cork often draws an instant strike. And some anglers do well with cut threadns or ladysh, using pieces of the baitsh both as chum and as bait reds home in on the scent, particularly when they cruise marshy shorelines on high tide. The Berkley articial bait known as Gulp! also does the job, again through scent attraction its a favorite among tournament pros when the sh are hard to fool with articials. Preferred tackle for ats reds is spinning gear loaded with 10-pound-test microber line; this allows long casts, and the nostretch ber gives plenty of power to handle the hard-running drum. An 18-inch length of 20-poundtest uorocarbon leader will stiffen the connection and prevent the line from tangling the hooks frequently as you work the lure, as braid often does. Flyrodders typically use 8-weight gear and weightforward oating lines. Juvenile reds remain inshore pretty much year around, and theres a good shery in the coastal rivers and creeks of the Panhandle at times from October into early December as sh gather in deeper holes on the rst cold fronts of the year this action is best on live shrimp, or on shrimptipped jigs. ON THE BEACHES Much larger redsh typically begin to prowl the beaches and inlets this month, with the run continuing into October as the adults move inshore to spawn. These are typically sh from 15 to 40 pounds, big bronze giants that are far beyond the legal slot, but that make great gamesh for catch and release. The sh can be anywhere from right against the sand to out several miles anglers who walk the beach at dawn and dusk often connect with some of these giants simply by fan casting as they move down the shore, dropping the rst cast right in the spindrift at the edge, then working out to deeper water. Large wobbling plugs or swimbaits are usually a good bet. These are big sh, so lures at least 6 inches long are called for. (I once saw a 40-pounder inhale a 15-inch seatrout on my buddys Mirrolure so dont be afraid to sh big lures.) They also take big topwaters like the Super Spook at times. Best gear for handling the sh from the beach is a saltwater duty spinning rig, with a reel in what is known as the 4000 size, capable of holding several hundred yards of 30pound test microber or braided line the tough, no-stretch braid gives the power needed to control big sh when you cant follow them in a boat. For shorebound anglers, some areas naturally produce better than others. The beaches for several hundred yards on either side of an inlet are always worth shing, as is the inlet itself, particularly around jetty rocks. And runouts that form where the wash of the surf pours back into the Gulf can also create feeding areas look for spits and points, anything that might give the reds a spot to trap bait. Panhandle shing piers are also sh magnets, and many big reds are caught from them each year. Big schools of reds also gather just off the beaches from now through fall, and sometimes these gatherings can be enormous, covering several acres. There are so many sh that they literally turn the water red as the sun reects off their pinkish-red backs, and when you spot one of these aggregations from a boat, its simply a matter of easing close and throwing any lure or live bait of your choosing into them hook-ups are instant, and can continue so long as the sh stay near the surface. Heavy tackle is necessary otherwise the sh run back through the school and the line breaks on the backs of the freeswimming sh. Some of these sh will also move through the inlets and spawn on the deep edge of ats in the bays in fall, so its not uncommon for trout and ounder anglers to occasionally get a 40-pound surprise that wrecks their tackle. RELEASING REDS TO FIGHT AGAIN Reds are durable sh, and readily survive the handling that goes with catch-and-release shing. Just remember the usual cautions with sh that are to be released have long-nosed pliers or hook removers at hand, get the hooks out quickly, leaving the sh in the water if possible, hold her up horizontally for a photo one hand holding the jaw, the other the tail and then get her back into the water promptly. Fish that sink to bottom and lie there exhausted can be brought back to life by tapping them lightly with a rod tip dont leave a worn-out sh upside down on bottom or it will die. REDFISH ON THE MENU Reds are excellent table fare, but like many species they taste best if the skin is removed and the red line cut away before cooking. The usual llet procedure works ne with them, and the llets, cut into 3 inch pieces, are delicious dusted with seasoned cornmeal and fried in peanut oil. For reds near the maximum slot size, cooking in the shell is a good option gut the sh but leave the skin, llets and head in place. Salt the body cavity, then stuff with fresh-cut oranges or lemons. Wrap the sh in heavy duty aluminum foil and place on a low heat grill. Cook until a fork goes into the thick part of the shoulder easily. This cooking method basically steams the esh, making it exceptionally delicate and tasty, almost like crab meat. Serve with melted butter and lemon slices. REDFISH RULES Floridas redsh regulations for Panhandle waters allow two sh per angler per day between 18 and 27 inches long. Fish must be landed in whole condition and no more than six can be possessed by one person away from the water at one time which is to say loading your cooler for the trip back to Alabama is a no-no. Theres no closed season. Commercial harvest is prohibited. Hot weather, hotter shing Dog days redsh PH O T O S BY F R AN K SA R GEANT | Special to The Times Juvenile reds are found inshore, in bays and back country, until theyre about four years old. This sh is at the age where it is about to mature and move offshore. Below in shallow ats, reds often tail or tip up to expose the tips of tail and dorsal n as they feed, typically at depths of 12 inches or so.

Good fish are being caught in the Shark Hole area using live shrimp and small pin fish for bait. The bite is slow, however, the new moon and tide changes should have this week looking better for trout and red fish. Flounder have been showing up at the docks lately with good numbers in St. Joe and East Bay so far this month, but most are on the smaller side right now. King fish are still thick on all near shore and offshore wrecks right now. Slow trolling, drifting, or even night time fishing will all prove to be productive as the water stays hot. Sharks are a huge problem with our fisheries ,and we have seen some huge ones this summer on many of our favorite spots. Beach fishing from Indian Pass is sure to be a great place to land a huge shark this week.

Participants commented that the weather was indeed sizzling this year with temperatures in the 90s and no cloud cover. The race started an hour earlier than usual. Fourteen runners turned out for the Fun Run, a mile-long warm up to the scorching main event. Daniel Wiedeman, 13, of Wakulla got his rst win ever with a time of 6:48 minutes. This was the third ever race for the lanky young runner. Good job Daniel! The top four runners in the One Mile Fun Run were Daniel Wiedeman; Lindsey Rykard, age 15, 7:16; David Miller, 10, 7:27; and Joseph Wiedeman, 9, 8:10. More than 220 runners signed up for the Sizzler. This years youngest runner was 7-year-old James Watson. The oldest competitor in the race was James Varley, 74. Many were visitors who registered on impulse when they heard about the Sizzler. Not so Polina Bondarenko, 14, of Chicago. Her family planned their vacation so she could compete. Bondarenko said this was her third year running in the Sizzler. She won the womens division with a time of 20:24 and took ninth place overall. She beat her time last year by 1:03 but that was enough. Bondarenko said she began running competitively at age 5 and frequently competes, but running is not her main athletic focus. The sleek sophomore is a swimmer and is ranked 20th in the state of Illinois. She began swimming at age 4. Bondarenko said she competes as a swimmer every other weekend. When she isnt running, swimming or studying, her hobbies are reading and drawing. Her advice to other athletes, Dont give up. Keep going and push through. This years overall winner with a time of 18:04 was Carl Nordheim, 51, a member of the Atlanta Track Club. This was his third time competing in the Sizzler. He ran here for the rst time in 2006 and again in 2010. Nordheim said he began running competitively at 13 years of age. He has competed in roughly 15 races a year for 40 years. Nordheim said he particularly likes the Sizzler because of the islands at terrain and the shared meal that follows the competition. Running is my passion, he said. My advice to anyone is come out and run it. The top 10 runners in the 2014 Sizzler were Nordheim; Bryce Cole, 16, 18:22; Joel Piotrowski, 44, 18:42; Albert Smythe, 17, 18:59; Nikita Bondarenko, 19, 19:41; Philip Sura, 44, 19:56; Travis Parks, 18, 19:57; Michael Martinez, 48, 20:12; Polina Bondarenko; and Shawn Logan; 19, 20:34. In spite of the very hot weather, island Fire Chief Jay Abbott said there were no serious medical problems. The only participant requiring help was a man who followed the route on a recumbent bicycle who became overheated and needed help to stand up at the end of the course. One reason for the lack of health issues among runners was careful planning and placement of water along the course. Several volunteers expressed concern that the road was not closed during the meet. Runners had to contend with automobile traf c especially along the stretch of Gorrie Avenue that runs in front of the Blue Parrot and the Buccaneer Inn. After the last runner crossed the nish line, participants and their companions were treated to a low county boil prepared by Pat Kelly and listened to music provided by Debi Jordan. The Sizzler is known for its unique ceramic trophies. This year the brightly colored images of a running shoe were created by Anne Eason.
