A12-A13 By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com State Attorney Willie Meggs last week brought legal closure to the April 3 killing of Charles Bubba Fasbenner, agreeing with Franklin County Sheriff Mike Mock that the homeowner had the right to use deadly force when the intoxicated 20-year-old walked into an Apalachicola front yard and advanced on the homeowner after being warned to leave. In an Aug. 25 letter to Mock, Meggs said he believed this homicide to be justi ed after reviewing the sheriffs investigative les, which included witness interviews and autopsy ndings. Florida Statute 782.13 provides that a homeowner can defend his home, self, and others under this factual scenario, Meggs wrote. I commend your department for a detailed and thorough investigation. In a follow-up letter to Mock Aug. 29, Meggs said the statute number he cited was incorrect, and that it Meggs: Fasbenner homicide justi ed Airport rent reduced temporarily By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com At their Tuesday morning meeting, county commissioners agreed to slash in half for the next six months the monthly lease payment paid to the county by CrystalAir, the xed base operator at Apalachicola Regional Airport. Commissioner Pinki Jackel moved to reduce CrystalAirs rent from $5,000 monthly to $2,500 for six months, and require the county be paid 3 cents for every gallon of gas sold. The motion passed 41, with Commissioner Noah Lockley opposed. Jason Puckett, spokesman for the FBO, told commissioners fuel sales the airport have been less than expected since CrystalAir took over in October 2012. He said records reviewed at the time the lease was signed were misleading. Not a lot of folks make a fuel stop here on their way to somewhere else, he said. We have tried to market (the airport) with tourism. All were asking is that you make it equitable and fair. Puckett said the airport had gotten a reputation for poor service in the past that his rm is ghting to overcome. He said CrystalAir is making progress toward improving customer relations. Commissioner Smokey Parrish By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes lswoboda@star .com Based on the tentative Department of Transportation ve-year plan, the state will not resurface U.S. 98 between Carrabelle and Eastpoint in the foreseeable future. At the Aug. 19 county commission meeting, Keith McCarron, senior planner for the Apalachee Regional Planning Council, said other sections would be resurfaced over the next three years. A little less than a mile of U.S. 98 between 12th Street and the John Gorrie Bridge will be paved in 2015 at an approximate cost of $950,000. Almost 6 miles between the Gulf County line and Tilton Road are scheduled for resurfacing in 2016 at a cost of about $3 million. Commissioners expressed disappointment and concern that the stretch of state highway between Eastpoint and Carrabelle has been passed over for repair. That roads the pits, Commissioner Pinki Jackel said. A lot of other areas have alternative roads. We do not. We have school buses on that road.

Kimberly Wallace, an employee at Fathoms in Carrabelle, posted that she was losing her rental and needed a home for her dog, Thor. She had been renting a house with the understanding that she had an option to buy. Unbeknownst to her, her landlord had not been paying his note, and the house had gone into foreclosure.

In a three-paragraph sum mation based on his review of an extensive case le prepared by Detective Brett Johnson, Meggs recounted that Fasbenner en tered the front gate of a fenced yard at 277 Tim othy Simmons Road, where he was confronted by 24-year-old Ronald Joseph R.J. Page, who lives there with his mother, Joanna Page. Toxicology reports showed Fasbenners blood alcohol level was 0.31, about four times the legal limit for driving. The drug screen also found a presence of hydrocodone, acetaminophen and methadone. Apparently, due to Mr. Fas benners high level of intoxica tion, (he) did not respond and moved towards the homeowner, wrote Meggs. The homeowner had red a warning shot into the ground near Mr. Fasbenner and rather than leaving the yard, Mr. Fasbenner started climbing the steps as evidenced by his blood on the second step. The blood on the porch steps was signicant, given that the law denes a dwelling as includ ing any attached porch. The law says a person who unlawfully and by force enters or attempts to enter a persons dwelling, residence or occupied vehicle is presumed to be doing so with the intent to commit an unlawful act involving force or violence. But those ndings do not sit well with Fasbenners family, which is led by Buddy Wayne and Carolyn Butler, who live in a Pine Drive home where their grand son, who they raised from infan cy, was likely returning the night he was killed. This is a cold-blooded mur der, said Buddy Wayne Butler, never raising his voice. Thats as cold-blooded as you can get. I dont care what the conclusion was. He wanted to kill that boy. He got his opportunity and he took it, he said. He knew what he was doing. He didnt want to lose that chance, thats what I gure. Pages mother, reached by the Apalachicola Times, said neither she nor her son wanted to com ment for this story. Loads 10 rounds, res a warning shot Details of R.J. Pages actions the night of the shooting emerge in Johnsons report, which began when the detective arrived on the scene at 10:20 p.m., about 36 min utes after Joanna Page called 911 to report the shooting, and about three minutes after Fasbenner was pronounced dead by emer gency medical personnel. On the 911 call, Page and her son are heard rendering aid to the dying Fasbenner. Also, ac cording to Johnsons report, Page is overheard on the call tell ing his mother, when asked why he didnt shoot him in the leg, that, If I would have shot any lower, I would have hit him in the (testicles). Johnson conducted each of his video recorded statements separately inside the Pages dou ble-wide trailer, rst with Joanna and then later with R.J. Page, who had been held in the back seat of Apalachicola Sgt. Wesley Creamers patrol car. They should have taken that man to jail and interviewed him, said Buddy Wayne Butler. A criminal feels more at home in his own home. I think there would be a lot of difference in his reaction. Page said he was watching a movie in the computer room, with the window open, when he heard the front gate open. Jo hanna Page said she was on her laptop in the living room and saw her son walk out the front door with a .22-caliber rie. She heard R.J. say who are you, what do you want, I will shoot you, read Johnsons report. Jo anna said she heard a gunshot and then her son telling someone to back off. R.J. then red a sec ond shot and told his mother to call 911 while he went outside to check on the guy. Johnson said prior to his tak ing a statement from R.J. Page, the man waived his Miranda rights. He told the detective the man he saw walking through the gate had a hat on, and he could barely see his face and did not recognize him. Page said the man shut the gate behind him, and walked towards the back of the trailer, where he could not be seen when Page rst stepped out on to the porch and looked around. Trained as a correctional of cer, he worked at Franklin Cor rectional Institution between November 2008 and September 2009, Page said he then went into his bedroom, loaded his rie with 10 bullets and walked back out on the porch. No 911 call was made prior to the shooting. Page said he noticed the man walking from around the trailer, raised his rie and asked who he was and if he needed help. The man only replied yeah, John son wrote in his report. The man kept walking towards the north fence and then turned towards R.J. Page said he red a warning shot into the ground in front of the man, and then ejected a live round because sometimes the bullets got jammed in the gun. Page said he stepped backwards as the man walked closer to wards him on the porch, and then red a second shot after the man stepped up from the bottom step. The layout of (Pages) fencedin front yard showed that a per son would have to walk towards the front porch in order to exit, Johnson wrote. They would not have to step on the porch, only walk past it, because the gate is right next to the bottom step. The autopsy by Medical Ex aminer Dr. Lisa Flannagan found the bullet in Fasbenners chest had hit his heart at a downward angle. Police ultimately found two spent shell casings. The detective said witnesses in the neighborhood who told police they heard the shots gave differing counts as to the interval between them, ranging from one to 15 seconds. Cellphone found near Fasbenners elbow The shooting took place less than 17 minutes after Joanna Page had logged off from her workplace computer at Weems Memorial Hospital. She told de tectives that while she was not working that night, she and her son had driven to Weems to re trieve an email regarding min utes on her cell phone. The Pages share a cell phone, which is the only telephone in the home, ac cording to Johnsons report. The detective said Johanna Page logged on to her work computer between 9:25 and 9:27 p.m. Fasbenners sister, Heather Maxwell, believes her brother was likely cutting through the Pages yard, seeing it as a short cut he may have thought he knew well from when he attended the Apalachicola Bay Charter School. She said she believes the Pages at one time had been accustomed to school kids cutting through their yard, and may have erected the fence to prevent that. On April 4, Johnson investi gated Fasbenners whereabouts prior to the shooting, and learned from friends in the area that he had appeared very intoxicated that night, and had to be forced to leave a residence after he helped move some furniture inside. The Butler grandparents dont dispute that their grandson was intoxicated after a long day oys tering but they say that doesnt justify the shooting. They gave him a death sen tence because he had alcohol in him, said Buddy Wayne Butler. He was a good kid, said Fas benners grandmother. Some times they dont mean to, but they get into trouble. The Butlers also question why the sheriff didnt do a blood test on Page the night of the shooting, or look more carefully into his background, activities and state of mind in the days surrounding the shooting. Page was arrested four years ago, for possession of Ecstasy and drug paraphernalia, but those felony charges were lat er dropped. In October 2013, Page was charged with eeing or at tempting to elude a law enforce ment ofcer, also a felony. Those charges were later reduced to resisting on ofcer without vio lence, adjudication was withheld and Page received probation. Because it was a misdemean or, Page was not disallowed from possessing a gun. Closed case They had a closed mind on everything we said, said Buddy Wayne Butler. I think the sheriff justied it the night it happened. The Butlers say the fact their grandson had in his pockets only some cash, a lighter, a drivers li cense and a saltwater harvesting license, and that he appeared to have been carrying a cell phone, further points to the lack of any threat posed to the Pages. John sons report says Fasbenners cell phone was found lying on the ground by his left elbow. He would have never touched that home. He would have been out that gate if he had another 30 seconds, said Buddy Wayne Butler. Page sent Fasbenners moth er, Cindy Gore, a pair of penciled two-page letters a few days after the shooting, care of the Butlers home. In them, Page voices his sorrow at what happened, ex presses sympathy with the Butler family and says he is having dif culty coping with the shooting. Carolyn Butler has kept the let ters, but said she has little inter est in reading them. He (Page) had a chance to show mercy and he didnt choose to, she said. Whatever consolation they have in their sorrow comes from the tremendous outpouring of love and support they have re ceived from Fasbenners many friends, including a benet that helped offset the cost of his burial in Magnolia Cemetery. A popular member of the Franklin County High School Class of 2012, Fas benners grave is decorated with numerous owers. On the slab over the grave is carved a Se ahawk with Fasbenners football jersey number, 59, over its left wing, and his words, We created memories that will never fade away. We will now split, spread our wings, and y away. Buddy Wayne said he recalls a boy who he brought up to say his prayers, often reading to him from the Bible and talking to him about what it said. Bubba was a respectable person, he said. You cant buy a good name. You have to live a good name to have a good name. They had a closed mind on everything we said. I think the sheriff justied it the night it happened. Buddy Wayne Butler Fasbenners grandfather Florida Statute 782.13 provides that a homeowner can defend his home, self, and others under this factual scenario.

This newest round of scams comes in the form of an email referencing a missed court appearance. Unlike past scams, these emails attempt to retrieve personal data, forcefully, by computer virus attached as a .zip le. These mali cious attachments contain a Trojan Horse virus that becomes active as soon as the le is unzipped. Recent examples of these scams have been signed by cti tious county clerks. All court-related commu nications are sent through normal mail. Jury summons and failure to appear notices are never sent via phone or email. Important tips to remember: The Clerks ofce does not call or email residents to request payment for miss ing jury duty. The ofce will also never request payment via any sort of prepaid debit card. The Clerks ofce does not call or email residents to verify information related to jury duty or to notify them that they missed jury duty. Communications are only sent by mail unless you re quest an excusal. If a resident misses jury duty, the individual re ceives a failure to appear notice in the mail from the judge representing their Circuit Court. Arrest warrants are not usually issued for failure to report for jury duty. Con tact the Clerks ofce, if you receive one. Do not open an email attachment from any un familiar source, and never provide personal informa tion to an unfamiliar source, either by phone or email. Special to The Times Do you ght to keep your eyes open and your head up when you are tired? All too often this scenario is real on Floridas roadways. To help prevent crashes caused by driver fatigue and to bring awareness to the dangers of drowsy driving, the Depart ment of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Flor ida Department of Trans portation are teaming up with lawmakers and safety advocates during Floridas Drowsy Driving Prevention Week on Sept. 1-7 in memo ry of Ronshay Dugan, who was killed in 2008. The department recog nizes that making our roads safer includes driver re sponsibility and encourages all motorists not to drive drowsy, FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said. Be alert every trip, every time you get behind the wheel. Six years ago, the life of a little girl was tragically taken in a crash that easily could have been prevent ed, said state Represen tative Alan Williams, who sponsored the legislation in 2010. How to prevent fatigue driving: Allow plenty of time to get to your nal destination. Avoid driving at times when you would normally be asleep. Drink caffeine. Two cups of coffee can increase alertness for several hours. Drive sober. Get a good nights sleep before you travel. Take a break every 100 miles or two hours. Take a nap; nd a safe place to take a 15 to 20-min ute nap, if you think you might fall asleep. Use the buddy sys tem, switch drivers when needed.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times OPINI O N www.apalachtimes.com Thursday, September 4, 2014 A Section Special to The Times Numerous studies have shown that students who eat a healthy and wellbalanced breakfast perform better academically and physically. According to the Food Research and Action Center, providing breakfast to students at school improves their concentration, alertness, comprehension, memory and learning. From Sept. 15 to 19 is Florida School Breakfast Week, an annual celebratory week in Florida schools that was created to bring attention to school breakfast. This years theme, designating by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, is Roll Out the Red Carpet for School Breakfast. Students who attend breakfast at Franklin County School this week are in for a special treat. We will be celebrating by having an art contest for students in Headstart through Fifth Grade. We will also be having a breakfast recipe contest for grades 6-12. Prizes will be awarded by grade level for these contests. We will be drawing names for daily prizes and to ensure that only those who participate in the school breakfast program we will draw names from the prior days sales list. Students will eat breakfast one day and the names will be drawn the next day. We know that breakfast is very important for the well-being of our students so were excited to do all we can to make the week a success, said April Dalton, manager of Franklin County School Food and Nutrition Services. Some kids had not even tried school breakfast until this promotion. Its a great way to get kids excited about coming to the cafeteria. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services oversees rule compliance for the states school meals but also works to increase participation in the USDAfunded reimbursement program. They created the annual week to give schools a promotional period to rally around and bring attention to the importance of breakfast. All school breakfasts must contain whole grains, lowfat or fat-free milk and fruit and meet strict calorie and sodium specications. For more information, visit www.FreshforFloridaKids. com. Franklin County Schools will be serving up favorites like Award-Winning Wafes, Paparazzi Pop Tarts, Fan Favorite Fruit Punch, Oscar-Winning Orange Juice, People Pleasing Pears, Fantastic Fruit Loops, Amazing Apple Jacks and many more delectable dishes that will tickle your taste buds. Parents, please encourage your children to eat breakfast at school so they will get a wonderful start to a fantastic day. He looked to the beach, blessed every lounge chair of the state of Florida a patient and forgiving state where lives could be rethought, revised, perhaps even repaired. from Tropical Depression by Laurence Shames The next sound you hear is an entire state exhaling at the conclusion of the Labor Day holiday. Jimmy Buffett had it right in When The Coast Is Clear. (see lyrics below). Lets start with the bottom line. Florida may yet host 100 million visitors in 2014. According to Visit Florida, 24 million out-of-state tourists visited Florida during the three month period of April through June, most of whom seemed to be driving in my neighborhood. Just kidding. This new record eclipsed the second quarter mark by 3 percent, set last year during this time period. Of these 24 million second-quarter visitors, 2.8 million were from overseas and a million were from Canada. More out-ofstate Americans came to see us, too, 2.6 percent more than last years record-setting numbers. We dont have the third quarter statistics yet (July through September), but these numbers are likely to establish new records, also. Tourism is a job creator. Some 1.1 million Florida jobs are directly tied to it, including 76,000 new ones in 2013. The hotel industry thrives. Fattened sales tax revenues subsequently help fund schools, roads and building projects. Realtors sell second homes and condos. Small businesses ourish. Charter boat shermen earn a sweat-stained living guiding sunburned tourists into schools of amberjack, snapper and mingo. Visitors throw coins ad nauseam into the plastic netting at the entrance to Florida toll roads, money that helps pay down the debt issued to build those roads. Speaking of coins, theres a ip side, too. The roads that our visitors help pay for? Theyre deteriorating faster than we can rebuild them, partly because of so many out-ofstate cars. The population in tourist destinations swells to 25 and 50 times the actual number of permanent residents. The strain on infrastructure is enormous. Locals shop depleted grocery store shelves, stand in interminable lines, and motor behind excited, erratic drivers. Roads are clogged, and safety and rescue vehicles can often make little more progress in negotiating them than the rest of us. Our water resources, with an aquifer already stressed by commercial development, must sustain not only our permanent residents, but thirsty visitors as well. Gently expressed, the quality of life suffers. Many visitors eventually themselves become permanent residents. And pay property taxes and contribute to communities. And as such, it doesnt take them long to join the debate over the mixed blessing of unbridled tourism. As Kurt Vonnegut said, And so it goes. Thats where it always happens Same place every year; I come down to talk to me When the coast is clear. Margaret R.

S HARE Y O U R OPINION S Record tourism, Laurence Shames and Jimmy Buffett MARGARET R. M c DOWELL A rbor O utlook By ELINOR MOUNT -SIMMONS Reporter, Franklin County Schools I believe we are going to have an awesome year working and learning together. Thats a proclamation from Franklin County Schools current Teacher of the Year (TOY) Katrina Ham, one of our great elementary teachers. Ham, who teaches third grade, says her school year has started off wonderfully and she is enjoying each day. Of course some days I am faced with challenges, but the reward of their smiling faces and the aha moments are truly worth it all. This summer, Ham attended the annual Teacher Of the Year conference at the Disney Boardwalk Resort in Orlando. She says the experience was truly amazing. I felt like a queen the whole time I was there. During the gala event of the conference, the TOYs from all over the state were honored by two of Floridas leaders, Governor Rick Scott and the Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. The conference also afforded Ham the opportunity to participate in leadership trainings where she learned new strategies to implement in her classroom. According to this Seahawk employee, the conferences theme was LEAD and being so inspired by all that she saw and heard, using her ingenuity, Ham created an acronym to capture the experience she received from the conference. L Lift up one another (collaborate, teamwork), E Encourage, embrace, endure, and most importantly, enjoy; A Act positively; D Deepen knowledge (we are lifelong learners). Ham also adds that we have to truly learn to work with each other and learn from each other if we want things to improve and work effectively. Katrina Ham is but one of the dedicated faculty and staff members who work on the Seahawk campus Mondays through Fridays (and sometimes we volunteer nights and weekends, too.) Although only two weeks into the school year, valuable learning opportunities are made available for all Seahawks all over the campus and the Seahawk family is taking advantage of them all. For Hams third graders, one important lesson the class of 20 has learned is that everyone makes mistakes and nobody is perfect. We just need to learn from our mistakes and keep moving forward. Ham has a passion for teaching and really enjoys working with, and nurturing her students, helping them soar, for as she further added we are like a family. Practice. Practice. Practice. Thats the mantra of the Marching Seahawk Band, or as the football announcer dubbed them The Crimson BoomBox. Under the direction of veteran bandmaster Karl Lester, the students that dedicate a great deal of their school days and evenings (and sometimes nights) to bringing the musical element to Seahawk Friday Night Lights, have been working very hard since the summer preparing for their halftime show during the football season. This year, the music comes from the 70s, an era that produced some amazing music. Beginning this Friday, Sept. 5, and every home game after that please support the Crimson BoomBox and come out to the Mikel Clark football stadium for the football game and when you have that break from cheering on the team (halftime), prepare to do a little toe-tapping, handclapping, head-bobbing, and dancing-in-the-stands to the sounds of your favorite tunes of that decade. Their selections cover many genres, from rhythm & blues to rock to pop, and if you are a 70s music acionado, Im sure well hear you and many others adding the lyrics to the bands instrumental version and loudly singing the words during their halftime performance. Your enthusiastic support will be totally appreciated by the band, Im sure. Thats it for this week. Until next week, keep soaring. A longtime classroom teacher in the Franklin County Schools, Elinor Mount-Simmons was a regular columnist for the Times for many years.

ISLAND PARADE BETTER THAN EVER A pictorial feature about the St. George Island Labor Day parade ran in the September 1984 issue. Ann Jones, Carol Jones, Kim Taylor, Mary Faulkner and Jeff Harrelson wait for the parade to start. Oystermen claim a frame up By Liliane Parbot Johnson Times Staff Reporter More than a dozen oystermen slept on the steps of the Franklin County jail Friday night, after being arrested by Florida Marine Patrol (FMP) of cers for harvesting oysters at night. Those arrested claimed they were set up and allegations were made that one of cer had offered protection that night and in the past. We were told by the marine patrol we could go oyster on Cat Point and we would not get stopped, said George Langley. We took their word and they caught every one of us, plus $20,000 worth of nes. One of them was with us when we were catching oysters. He tied our boat to his boat because our motor was ooded out. Its sneaky, tricky and downright dirty. We want justice. We slept on the jail porch, Fred Lively said. They arrested about 15 of us, all from one seafood house. We were all on different boats. Langley and Lively were among a group of men who were waiting for a ride back to Central Seafood in Eastpoint after posting bond, Tuesday, shortly after 8 a.m. They told the Times that one of their comp-anions Rodney Butch Nowling was still in the sheriffs department waiting room being processed. They (FMP) planted pot on his boat, Arvil Davis said. There was nothing on his boat when they searched it last night. They searched the boat, last night, and they found nothing, said Wayne Nowling who is Butchs uncle. But this morning, they say they found Marijuana. At the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), of which FMP is a division, the director of information, Duane Bradford said, Allegations of improprieties are currently under investigation. Until the investigation is completed, we will have no further comment. From statements made by oystermen-either outside the jailhouse or later at Central Seafoodthe Times pieced together the alleged course of events, which started at sundown, Monday, when the Central Seafood crew was sitting on one of the decks, behind the oyster house shing with rods. He (FMP of cer) approached me and told me to go to work, Wayne Nowling said. Tony Nowling (Waynes brother) concurred and with Wayne and added, He (of cer) said he was the only one on duty. Butch and Tonys father R. J. Nowling alleged it was not the rst time the of cer had offered them protection. All three of cers and others gave the name Tracy Noble. Tracy was with them, Nowling said. He was out there to keep the other FMP away. Attempts were made by the Times to contact Noble but no telephone listing was found. DNR Information Director Bradford, when asked where Noble could be located said: He cannot discuss this case by law. Bradford added that once an investigation is started, even the persons making the allegations are forbidden to discuss the case. The arrests took place after the men had returned to the oyster house. How can they charge them with being in closed water when they arrest them at the dock? J. Nowling commented. Harvesting oysters is against the law between sunset and sunrise. Also, harvesting can be done only in open areas, so designated by the Department of natural Resources (DNR) of which FMP is a division. Cat Point is a winter area and is presently off limits. The regulations are set up by DNR, the seafood regulation the seafood industry to assure that only oysters t for consumption reach the market. Another reason is to give the oyster beds a chance to regenerate. Other unscheduled closures of Apalachicola Bay occur when heavy rain or other causes may result in pollution of the water and contamination of the oysters. Each time the bay is closed to harvesting, not only does it put oystermen out of work, it also affects people employed in other processing jobs. They close the bay and they try to starve us until they build these d condominiums, Langley had said in front of the jailhouse. And we have to go to Panama City to earn a living because we have no education. I have learned cabinet making but lots of them cant do anything else. At one point, while still at the jailhouse, while most men were talking at once Langley said, You cant settle any kind of arguments in the street. It has to be right in a court of law and they have to give us our rights. Something like this could turn into a riot. Its pure nonsense on both sides. An ad from the September 1984 issue. This follow up article appeared the next week: Dealer association backs DNR By Liliane Parbot Johnson Times Staff Reporter Thirtyve oystermen recently arrested for violating the harvesting curfew and other infractions have failed to attract the sympathy of their law-abiding colleagues. If the (Apalachicola) bay is to survive, these outlaws who steal oysters will have to be stopped and I feel the community feels that way, said Willard Vinson, the immediate past president of the Apalachicola Bay Oyster Dealers Association. These feeling were overwhelmingly shared by others who earn a living from the meaty bivalve harvested from the bay. Annie Mae Flowers, the new association president signed the following open letter to all oystermen, oyster dealers, and all others who are concerned about saving Apalachicola Bay. She said copies of the letter were sent to Bay, Gulf, Wakulla and Franklin. It reads: By unanimous vote of a quorum of the membership of the Apalachicola Bay Oyster Dealers Association, we are in total support of recent actions taken by the Florida Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to enforce regulations prohibiting the harvesting of unculled oysters, harvesting oysters in closed areas and harvesting oysters after dark or before daylight. We are sorry that some shermen have lost their boats. But we also recognize that the nes alone are not enough to prevent these serious oyster conservation violations from taking place repeatedly in the recent past. In the long run, it appears to us that something other than nes will need to be developed as a sanction. We offer to work with the Seafood Workers Association, DNR, County Judge, State Attorney and others on this matter. The day has come when we in the oyster industry must go on record in strong and unequivocal opposition to tonging in the hole and other violations that are depleting and destroying our Bays precious oyster resources. Every dealer and every oysterman is here (by) put on notice that no support will be given to any person who violates these oyster conservation laws. On behalf of the Association Annie Mae Flowers President. The stand taken by the association came in the aftermath of two raids made by the Florida Marine Patrol (FMP) The rst raid started shortly before 1 a.m. Aug. 28, resulting in the arrest of 15 oystermen. All were charged with possession of unculled (not sorted to return undersized specimens to the oyster bar). Thirteen were charged with transporting oysters between sunset and sunrise and oystering in closed waters. The other two were written up for oystering during closed season. Other charges were related to equipment and permits, plus one drug charge. Five boats were seized. Two days later, August 30, 20 more oystermen were arrested after having g been caught harvesting in a winter area of St. George Sound just east of Bryant Patton Bridge. This area legally opened for harvesting two days later, Sept. 1. Not unlike hunting, oyster harvesting is regulated as to location and time of year. There are winter and summer areas while other places are closed at all times, such as the delta of the Apalachicola River. While left undisturbed for several months, oyster beds replenish themselves. When oystermen break the law, they undermine what others have worked hard to achieve, Vinson said. Asked to comment on the actions of the 35 recently arrested oystermen, he said, Im opposed to that (illegal harvesting) because we have fought for a summer program and now I am opposed because I asked and received money for the relay program and I contributed to the community chest so when these people have hard times they can have food to feed their families. When Vinson was president of the Apalachicola Bay Oyster Dealers Association, he was among industry representatives who asked and received legislative appropriations for relaying-relocating oysters from a polluted area of the bay to another sector where the water was not contaminated. Not only was money obtained used for salaries of oystermen participating in the relaying work, shortly after this was done, the relocated oysters had cleansed themselves and were t to be harvested for consumption. The relay program took place last spring in the midst of a months unemployment for oyster workers at all levels when the bay was closed because of several polluting causes, such as sewer spills and excessive rains causing run-off. The president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association, Fred Jetton, said that in the case of the second round of arrests, the dif culty in delineating the line may have been a factor. I dont know how far these men were off the line, he said. Thats between them and the marine patrol. Because of problems in knowing where the line is and resulting con icts between oystermen and patrol of cers, several months ago, the association recommended the bridge be used as the boundary instead of the current imaginary line between two buoys. Jetton said a public hearing on the proposal is scheduled for at 7 p.m. Sept. 7 in Apalachicola High School auditorium. The proposal is scheduled to be presented to governor Sept. 20. Trip tickets are to be lled out by oyster harvesters and oyster houses in order to provide a means of tracking the origin of an oyster batch in case of illness by consumers. According to DNR of cials, the data provided would also be helpful for research being done to improve the industry. 30 years ago this week, a crackdown by the Florida Marine Patrol was front-page news. Heres the story: Bologna cups with mashed potatoes Special to The Times The following recipe, from Food.com, might help answer the question from last week: What were the bologna cups on the Quinn High School menu from 1964. Does anyone remember more about what Quinn offered? If so, call the Times at 653-8868 or email Lois Swoboda at lswoboda@star .com. Cook mashed potatoes and set aside. Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Fry each piece of bologna by placing into skillet and cooking one side until desired doneness and then ipping and cooking the other side. *Important* Do not cut the bologna so that it will lie at. You want the bologna to create a bowl as it cooks. Once bologna is cooked, remove from skillet, blot excess grease off with paper towel and place onto a serving plate. Spoon a servings worth of mashed potatoes into each bologna bowl and top with a slice of cheese. You may microwave the bologna / mashed potato cups just long enough to reheat the potatoes and to melt the cheese. Bologna cups also may be lled with a creamed vegetable like spinach or peas; macaroni and cheese; seasoned rice or eggs. The eggs may be scrambled or simply broken into the cup and pierced several times with a toothpick before microwaving. Like us on THE APALACHICOLA TIMES

The child of two teachers, Craig came to the St. George Island in 2003 with her beloved companion Terry Adamick who passed away last year. After his death, and throughout her life, she has taken great solace in books. This summer, she decided to give something back to her island home. Everything important I know, I learned from books, Craig said. With the help of her best friend from Atlanta, James Brown, she created a freestanding, weatherresistant book exchange that holds about 30 volumes. She called it Lunas Little Library for her cat Luna. The book exchange accepts paperback and hardbound books as well as books on tape or disc. The library, at 1000 West Pine Avenue, is unattended, but, if you are in need of reading material, bring a book to exchange and help yourself. If you notice Loris truck in the driveway, feel free to say hi and thank her for bringing literature to our island paradise. Craig said the library is already a big hit and a number of books have been exchanged every day since she placed it. She said she got the idea after visiting Atlanta where the book exchanges have become widespread phenomena. Craig is not the rst to create a book exchange on St. George. Islanders will remember that the old Island Oasis had a book exchange in the bar. By LOIS SWOBODA Painter Lynn Wilson of Apalachicola has received national recognition for two of her most recent works. Wilson, who was featured in the St. George Island Plantation summer art exhibit, has been selected to participate in the prestigious Southern Appalachian Artists Guild (SAAG) National Juried Show with her oil painting RosenShine. Artists who are residents of the United States are invited to participate in this juried exhibition of twoand three-dimensional works, which is sponsored by SAAG and the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association and Art Center. Opening reception for the exhibition is Oct. 25 at the SAAG Art Center. This national show will be on display in the Richard Low Evans Gallery at the Blue Ridge art center. Submitted works were judged by artist Lori Putnam, a nationally recognized artist who has participated many times in the Forgotten Coast Plein Air Paint-Out since its inception in 2005. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, Salmagundi Club, and the American Impressionist Society. RosenShine was created during the annual Rose Festival plein-air paint-out last fall in Thomasville. Georgia. Of the 380 entries in that competition, only 130 pieces reached the nals. The Appalachian Pastel Society National Exhibition has selected a second Wilson painting, the award winning Abandoned for its biennial event. Juror Stan Sperlak is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and Mid Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association, amongst others. This national exhibit will be held at the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts in Highlands, North Carolina from Oct. 4 through Jan. 4, 2015.

The Times | A7 Thursday, September 4, 2014 Nurs ery no w pro vide d for Sund ay Chur ch Serv ice 101 NE F irst Street Carrabelle SUND A Y 10:00 AM WELCOMES Y OU THE EPISCOP AL CHURCH Faith William Bill Kollar, 52, of Tallahassee and St. George Island, passed away peacefully on Thursday morning, Aug. 28, 2014, in Tallahassee. Bill was born on Oct. 5, 1961 in Norristown, Penn. He came to Tallahassee in 1982 and has split time between Tallahassee and the coast ever since. He is survived by his wife, Amanda Pace Kollar; two sons, Harrison and Hans, and Hans mother Loreen Yerger Kollar; his sisters Kathy Kollar and Mariella Meinhold; and two brothers, Christopher and Steven Kollar. Bill leaves behind a very large extended family: his mother-in-law, Shirley Pace; father-in-law and wife, Jeff and Linda Pace; brothers-in-law Jake and Wray Pace; and many nieces and nephews, all of whom will miss their Uncle B terribly. Bill was from up north, but as he always said, I got to the South as soon as I could. Bill attended Florida A&M University and graduated with a degree in landscape design. Over the course of 30-plus years, he worked with many friends and clients; if a client wasnt already a friend, they quickly became one. Bills design work can be seen in many beautiful landscapes in Tallahassee, Apalachicola and St. George Island. He and Amanda created a business together, Gardens, Inc., in 2000. They moved to St. George Island in 2005 and a few years later opened a retail store in Apalachicola called The Garden Shop. Bill brought to the business a keen eye for design and a vast knowledge of indigenous plants. He specialized in the use of native plants to enhance and preserve the landscape along the coast. Bills ability to combine his extensive knowledge with his storytellers heart is part of what makes him special to us all. Bill was proud to have received his charter boat captains license in 2013. To say that Bill was at home on the water would be an understatement, it was his sanctuary. His greatest joy, however, was participating in the lives of his two sons, Hans, 20, and Harrison, 3. Hans, his oldest son, is in his third year at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. Bill was always an active and involved father and took an immense amount of pride in seeing the growth and the accomplishments of both of his boys. A memorial celebration of Bills life was at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2, at the Miccosukee Land Co-Op. Friends visited with the family at their home, 3897 Long and Winding Road, on Monday, Sept. 1, from 4 to 8 p.m. Bill Kollar Obituary In memory of Stanley Peter Furtak, Jr., 80, of Carrabelle, who passed away peacefully on Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013, and is sadly missed by his family.

He resided in the Manayunk and Germantown sections of Philadelphia, Lafayette Hill, Penn., and then retired to and split his time between Carrabelle and Woodbine, N.J., with his late wife of 40 years, Dorothy Irene (nee Kennedy), who passed away June 19, 1994. He remarried and is survived by his wife Sharol Ann (Hughes) Bradley. He is survived by his loving children and their spouses, Judith Gilbert (husband, Gene) and Stephen Furtak (wife, Susan). He was predeceased by his two sons, Richard Furtak (wife, Carol) and David Furtak, He is also survived by his grandchildren, Anthony, Stephen, Richard, Brian, Lauren, Daniel (wife, Rolena), Matthew and Bari; and his ve great-grandchildren, Olivia, Wendy, Rusella, Zerena and Alexa. Steve retired from the city of Philadelphia, Fairmount Park division, as a master plumber. He was an active member with Tri-State Anglers shing club and enjoyed every summer boating, shing and crabbing with his grandchildren. He was vice president of Lanark Golf Club, a volunteer reman for Lanark Village, and he never met a golf course, shing spot, slot machine or football pool he didnt like. A memorial service was held at Carrabelle United Methodist Church with friends and family. Interment was private at Whitemarsh Memorial Park, (Horsham Township), Ambler, Penn. Special to The Times First Baptist Christian School to host garage sale Apalachicolas First Baptist Christian School is having a huge end-of-summer garage sale, rain or shine, at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at 209 Ellis Van Vleet Road in Apalachicola.

Everyone is welcome to attend. This initiative, Inviting America Back to Church, seeks to reach the un-churched and de-churched, people who have never attended church or who once attended church but dont anymore, and invite them to return on a special Sunday. In 2013, a Gallup survey found 87 percent of people believe in God; however, only 27 percent of those surveyed attended church in the last seven days. Additionally, 82 percent of people who dont attend church say they would attend if invited by a friend, yet only 2 percent of Christians ever invite someone to church. For Back to Church Sunday, High Calling Church will have a special service that features uplifting music, an encouraging message from the pastor and lunch provided for all after the service. We simply want to invite as many people as possible to know Jesus, said Ron Crum Jr., lead pastor. For more information, visit www.backtochurch.com or www. highcallingchurch.org, or call 320-0409.

Dance Saturday night at senior center LANARK NEWS Jim Welsh Faith BRIEFS In Loving Memory: STANLEY FURTAK, JR. By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ ApalachTimes email@example.com One of Apalachicolas oldest churches is embarking on a new challenge: a pre-school in the mold of Montessori education. Trinity Episcopal Church is working to attract up to seven 3to 5-year-old students to take part in their St. Benedict preschool, modeled after the teaching approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori a century ago. Montessoris philosophy and practice was to emphasize freedom within limits and to nurture a respect for a childs natural psychological, physical and social development. The approach has been tested over the last 100 years and features student-driven choice of activity from within a range of options, uninterrupted blocks of work time, ideally three hours; a constructivist or discovery model, where students learn by working with materials, rather than by direct instruction; and specialized educational materials developed by Montessori and her collaborators. Familiar with the success of Montessori education, which in some places can be up through high school, the churchs pastor, the Rev. Martha Harris, favored bringing it here, but it was a remote possibility until this past year, when two key factors came together. Tricia Henderson, who ran a Montessori school in Port St. Joe that attracted Apalachicola students, was forced to tend to her own health issues and so had to close the school there. In addition, Trinity was able to enlist the services of a trained Montessori teacher, Tammy Farmer, who was moving back to St. Joe after years in Atlanta. Henderson, now state director of the Montessori program, and Farmer have been instrumental in helping set up the Apalachicola program. The church transformed the former library and Sunday school space at Benedict Hall into the Montessori classroom, painting the room and adding a door that leads out to a fenced-in play area. Were looking at it as a ministry, as community outreach, said Gloria Austin, chairman of the churchs vestry board. Over the past few weeks, Henderson and Farmer were busy putting in place all the school materials the church has acquired for the pre-school. Montessori and later her son developed specic teaching tools, such as geometric shapes and beaded mathematical congurations, that offer a tested approach for shaping learning activity. The churchs new place incorporates beauty, order and harmony, and enables the teacher to foster independence within an environment that facilitates movement and activity. The days of the pre-school, which is open to children who are toilet trained, up to kindergarten, are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. The monthly fee is $150, and there is a registration fee and supply fee as well. Austin said the cost is in keeping with other area schools. Teacher Tammy Farmer shows some of the teaching tools to be used at the new St. Benedict Montessori Pre-School. D A V I D A DL ER S TEIN | The Times OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY The St. Benedict Montessori Pre-School will have an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at Trinity Episcopal Churchs Benedict Hall. Registration materials will be available for prospective students. For more information, call 653-9550. Trinity to offer Montessori pre-school
Special to The Times Fall is the most active time of year for Florida black bears as they stock up on calories for the coming winter. Although black bears dont really need to put on pounds to survive the states usually mild winters, they behave as if they do eating about three times as much as usual. Generally, American black bears forage most actively from dusk until dawn though they may feed at any time. Up to 85 percent of the black bears diet consists of plants. During summer, the diet is comprised largely by fruits, especially berries and ower buds. During the autumn, feeding becomes pretty much the full-time task of black bears. Hazelnuts, acorns and pine nuts might be consumed by the hundreds each day during fall. During the fall period, American black bears also might habitually raid the nut caches of squirrels. The majority of the black bears animal diet consists of insects such as bees, yellow jackets, ants and their larvae. Once the hive is breached, black bears will scrape the honeycombs together with their paws and eat them, regardless of stings from the bees. Black bears will gnaw through trees if hives are too deeply set into the trunks for them to reach them with their paws. Black bears living in areas near human settlements or around a considerable in ux of recreational human activity often come to rely on foods inadvertently provided by humans. These include refuse, birdseed, agricultural products and honey from apiaries. Because bears now are busy lling their bellies, residents in Franklin County might have even more bear sightings than usual. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission asks people to be extra diligent in securing food sources around their homes and businesses that can attract bears and create problems. Preventing bears access to food is the most important thing people can do to keep bears and other wild animals out of neighborhoods, said Capt. Rob Beaton, area supervisor for the FWC. If you are a Florida black bear, raiding a garbage can to eat leftovers may be more appealing than foraging in the woods for palmetto berries and acorns. It is against the law to have food and attractants out for bears to access. And as bears are looking for food, the easier a food item is to get, the more likely it is that a bear will take advantage of it. Now more than ever we are relying on residents to keep bears from getting rewarded for being in neighborhoods, Beaton said. You can call your local trash pickup companies for options. Waste Pro in Wakulla and Franklin counties offers a retro t to trash cans that has proved effective. To keep bears away from your home and neighborhood, follow these tips: Feed your pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding. Secure household garbage in a shed, garage or a wildlife-resistant container. Put household garbage out on the morning of pickup, not the night before. Secure commercial garbage in bear-resistant dumpsters with metal lids or metal-reinforced plastic lids and lock bars. Clean grills and store them in a locked, secure place. Remove wildlife feeders, or make them bear-resistant. Protect gardens, apiaries, compost and livestock with electric fencing. Pick ripe fruit from trees and remove fallen fruit from the ground. Encourage your homeowners association or local government to institute ordinances on keeping foods secure that would attract wildlife. Con icts between Florida black bears and people are preventable, Beaton said. Most people who follow the FWCs advice on how to bear-proof their homes and businesses dont have con icts with these large and powerful wild animals. Black bears appear in the stories of some of some Native Americans. One tale tells of how the black bear was a creation of the Great Spirit, while the grizzly was created by the Evil Spirit. In the mythology of the people of the Northwest Coast, mankind rst learned to respect bears when a girl married the son of black bear Chieftain. In Kwakiutl mythology, black and brown bears became enemies when Grizzly Bear Woman killed Black Bear Woman for being lazy. The Navajo believed that the Big Black Bear was chief among the bears of the four directions surrounding Suns house and would pray to it in order to be granted its protection during raids. The Cherokee were comfortable living with black bears. Although the Cherokee believed in one God, they often saw re ections of the Great Spirit in nature and wildlife. On rare occasions when a black bear was born with white fur it was revered. The black bear was a signi cant part of the Cherokee ceremonial or religious practices. This might have been because bears stand upright, utter humanlike moans and groans and move their forearms and paws in much the same way as humans.

Gag grouper is still open in our waters east of Idian pass and many anglers are catching nice sh in the 100-180ft range due south of Cape San Blas. Inshore shing is slowing down this week due to school activities and football season, however, we are seeing large schools of red sh this week in and around the Crooked Island area and running the beaches near Shell Island. These sh are very spooky, so stealth is the best approach for a hook up. Top water action is the best way to land a trout in St. Joe Bay this week as the water temperatures continue to hold around the high 80s. Get out early as you can, even at day break for the best action and chance at a trophy trout. Be extra aware of bears in the fall Know and understand the bear laws Special to The Times As a resident of bear country, you should know and follow these regulations for your safety and for the bears safety. F.A.C. 68A-4.001: Intentionally placing food or garbage, allowing food or garbage, or offering food or garbage in such a manner that it attracts black bears, foxes, or raccoons and in a manner that is likely to create or creates a public nuisance is prohibited.

Caitlins Cleanup packs 20 bags with trash By Caitlin Smith Special to the Times Editors note: Caitlin Smith travels to St. George Island every year to visit her grandparents Charolette and Joe Bacher. In 2011 she decided she wanted to give something back to her favorite beach and organized her rst beach cleanup. The tradition lives on. Caitlins fourth annual beach cleanup was another success. We had a smaller group of about 10 volunteers who bagged about 20 trash bags full of garbage and larger items such as wooden pallets left by people on the beach and around the island. This is a good thing that there was less trash; however, we still need to realize that this is an ongoing problem that continually needs our attention. I appreciate the homeowners who walk the beach and pick up trash every day. I also encourage everyone to throw away trash in the appropriate trashcans to help save our beautiful marine life and to make the beach a safer place. As many of you may know, sea turtles nest on the beach and baby turtles need a place to walk back to the ocean when they hatch. As young turtles are walking back, they often get tangled in nets left by sherman and toy buckets left by children. The turtles try to eat plastic which eventually gets stuck around their body and left there for the rest of their life. These turtles have become endangered and we would like to help protect them instead of hurting them. Plastic bags and other plastic garbage that is thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1 million sea creatures every year. In addition to this, other animals try to eat gum and cigarette butts because they look like food. This can poison turtles, birds, and sh and they can choke on the garbage and die. Please be responsible in protecting our beach and our sea life by keeping the beaches of St. George Island clean. See you next year. Thank you.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Franklin County High School varsity girls golf team defeated Tallahassee Lincoln and Aucilla Christian last week, but fell to John Paul II, in their opening match of the season. In the four-team match Aug. 26 at Southwood Golf Club, sophomore Megan Collins and eighth grader Melanie Collins each shot 46. Second year player and senior Calli Westbrook red a 56 to secure her best score ever. Eighthgrader Alexus Johnson followed with a 66, and sixthgrader Abby Johnson shot 71, as both contributed in their rst-ever golf matches. We were happy with the effort from all the girls and excited to have good athletes that want to improve every day, head coach Scott Collins said. The team made the regional playoffs last year and seventh grader Melanie Collins quali ed for state. Coach Collins said he expects this years team to again make the playoffs and that the Lady Hawks have a solid chance to qualify for the state tournament as a team if they can play well in the Pensacola Regionals at the end of October. Collins is assisted with coaching duties by Stacy Kirvin and Spencer Tolbert. The team played Tuesday afternoon at Killearn Country Club against Chiles, John Paul II and Florida High. On Wednesday, they hosted Wakulla, Godby, John Paul II and Rickards at St. James Bay Golf Club. On Tuesday, Sept. 9, the team is again on their home course, St. James Bay, when they take on Wakulla and Aucilla Christian. On Thursday, Sept. 11, they travel to the Golden Eagle Golf and Country Club to face Chiles, Leon and Maclay.

Volleyball team falls to FAMU, Bozeman By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Lady Seahawk varsity girls volleyball team fell in their first two matches of the season, and are hoping to get in the winners column tonight at home against district foe Liberty County. On Aug. 27 in Tallahassee, the team lost in three straight to a tough FAMU team that put up a fight. The Franklin County girls were easily overcome in the first two games, and then fought hard in the third match, sending the game into overtime before falling 29-27. Although we lost, we learned a lot from this game on where we can make improvements, said Coach Hilary Stanton, who is assisted by Tara Klink. The junior varsity team, with only three returning players, is made up largely of first-year players, but was able to claim a win, 25-6 and 25-15, against the Baby Rattlers. I am so happy to say they won two matches back-to-back, giving them a win for their first game, Stanton said. Tara and I are both so happy at how far this team has come! Eighth grader Casey Riley did an amazing job, serving scoring nine aces in one match. The middle school team fought hard for a win and worked so hard for this first game. Everyone on the team is new and has never played before. The sixth graders needed to win two out of three matches to win the game, but lost the first two sets, 26-24 and 25-13. We were still so proud of them! Kelsey Griffin scored her team a total of four aces, Stanton said. On Tuesday, the JV and varsity teams squared off Bozeman last night and both games ended in a loss. The JV fell 25-18 and 25-13, and the varsity followed with a defeat 25-15, 25-18 and 25-11. We were not on our A game; we lost all three sets in a row, Stanton said. In both games the girls had their ups and downs, she said. We were very off as a team. Both coaches and players are very disappointed to walk away from our first district game with a loss. We hope to make improvements where needed and come back strong for our next game (tonight) against Liberty County at home. The varsity Lady Hawks square off at home Tuesday, Sept. 9, against West Gadsden in a district doubleheader, and are again at home on Wednesday, Sept.10, against North Bay Haven, this time with the JV also playing. On Thursday, Sept. 11, both teams travel to Rickards. Stanton added that after the return trip Tuesday night from Bozeman, a few of the girls on the team had the very exciting experience of helping in rescuing a little fawn with a broken leg that was in our school driveway. A few of the volleyball girls and some adults were able to get the baby wrapped up in a sweater and Scout Segree held the fawn tightly in her arms until we were able to locate help, she said. It was a very unique late night experience for our team. NEXT UP The varsity Lady Hawks square off at home Tuesday, Sept. 9, against West Gadsden in a district doubleheader, and are again at home on Wednesday, Sept.10, against North Bay Haven, this time with the JV also playing. On Thursday, Sept. 11, both teams travel to Rickards. Seahawks fall in opener to Fort Myers school By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com The Seahawk varsity football team traveled a long way last Friday, and then came up on the short end of the stick. Down 20-0 at the halftime, the Hawks managed only a lone score in the nal quarter before falling 40-7 against the Evangelical Christian School Sentinels, a Class 2A school in Fort Myers. This was not our best display of football this week, Coach Aaron York said. We came out sluggish. I do not know if it was due to the length of the trip, a delay in play due to weather or what, but we did not play very well. I know this week, we will show up much better, he said, as he prepared his squad for its home opener Friday against Eagles View Academy Warriors out of Jacksonville. On the offensive side of the ball, the Seahawks were led in rushing by sophomore Marshall Sweet, who had 11 carries for 38 yards, and senior Cole Wheeler, who rushed three times for 23 yards. Junior quarterback Josue Barahona completed 9-of-21 passes for 86 yards and three interceptions. Catching his tosses were sophomore Oshea Williams, who brought down ve catches for 62 yards, and Wheeler, who grabbed two for 27 yards. Wheeler earned player of the game honors as he added a standout performance on the defensive side of the ball, with 11 tackles, two sacks and two tackles for a loss. Junior Trenton Lee added six tackles and freshman Justin Arellano had ve. The Sentinels were led by sophomore Chris Ceasar, who carried the pigskin 27 times for 183 yards and two touchdowns, helping his team amass 286 on the ground, and 125 in the air. This week we will see a similar style team in Eagles View Academy, York said. We are still ghting the turnover battle. As a coaching staff we have to nd ways to eliminate them. I am con dent that our kids will come out with a much better performance this Friday night at home. COLE WHEELER JUSTIN ARELLANO MARSHALL SWEET Like us on THE APALACHICOLA TIMES

My father loves my dog, said Butler. I always try to take him with me when I go to visit. With that on his mind, But ler contacted Wallace through Facebook to tell her the Frank lin County Community Devel opment and Land Trust Corpo ration might be able to help her keep her family together. They met to discuss op tions, and Butler told her about a house on Arizona Street in Lanark Village that had been deeded to the county by its owner, the late Roscoe Daly. County Planner Alan Pierce said the State Housing Initia tive Partnership (SHIP) pro gram paid for repairs to Dalys home, and because he had no heirs, he had decided to return the house out of gratitude. Initially, the county tried to sell the house, but was unable to get the desired minimum price, so they donated the house to be used as low-cost housing. Butler said Wallace moved into the house, as is, in May. There were some problems. Someone had stolen the com pressor from the air condition er, and there was severe rot around one of the doors. Be cause Wallace signed a lease purchase agreement at that time, any money she spends to repair the house is deducted from her monthly $600 rent. The balance of her rent counts toward her $2,500 down pay ment; the balance of the money down and closing costs were paid for by SHIP. On Aug. 21, Wallace pur chased the house for $45,000, and once the mortgage is paid off, she will own both house and land. Butler said Wallace was one of the most appreciative recipients of help from the land trust he has encountered. He said though the trust has no more houses available, there are lots in both Apalachicola and Carrabelle. Randall Webster, execu tive director of the Franklin Community Development and Land Trust Corporation, said there are three ways the trust can put people together with homes. Rarely, he said, can they match a buyer with an existing house that has been deeded to the trust, as was the case with Wallace. The trust can construct a home on one of the donated lots it holds in inventory, in both Apalachicola and Carrabelle. Wallace said the trust also could assist with down payment and closing costs for a house on the market that is a good match for a prospective buyer with a qualifying income. Webster said the trust has a line of credit with the J. Ben Watkins Private Foundation that allows them to tie up prop erties until prospective buyers can arrange for nancing. We will work with home buyers to deal with any credit issues they may have, he said. The trust also offers home buyer education workshops about every six months. Butler said the trust is seek ing U.S. Department of Agri culture certied contractors to participate in their construc tion program. He said there are no USDA certied contrac tors operating in the county and that USDA certication is required to qualify for some federal grants. In addition to his position with the Land Trust, Webster has been involved in affordable housing for over 25 years. He has been a real estate broker, a mortgage broker and served as executive director for Habi tat for Humanity in Tallahas see. He has also served as vice president for Three Rivers Housing Foundation and plan ning manager for Single Fam ily Housing Programs for the state of Florida. Webster said anyone inter ested in nding a home through the land trust should email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 933-3355. Interested par ties may also attend a home buyers workshop sponsored by the trust. AIRPORT from page A1 said he was surprised to learn that annual fuel sales of $60,000 only covered the cost of the an nual lease. He said the sluggish economy played a role in the lack of business at the airport. He said much of the business community was concerned the airport remain open. Puckett said there are prob lems renting the existing han gars to generate additional income, referring to a large county-owned hangar that has remained largely empty since it was constructed a few years ago. If that corporate hangar was in my hometown of Thomasville (Ga.), it would be rented, Puck ett said. Theres not much in dustry of that size here, yet. Commissioner Noah Lockley asked why CrystalAir had run out of fuel over Memorial Day weekend this year. That was a perfect storm, Puckett said. Nobody wanted to have fuel available more than we did. He said military vehicles em ployed during Project Emerald Warrior consumed an unexpect ed amount of gas, leaving the airport short of fuel, and that a family emergency had left the normal fuel provider unable to make a delivery on short notice. He said CrystalAir had post ed the shortage online to avoid inconveniencing pilots. I think we handled it very efciently, he said. Puckett said CrystalAir plans to cut staff to reduce costs but has an aircraft mechanic on call 24 hours daily. Commissioner Pinki Jackel asked if fuel at the airport is competitively priced. Puckett said it was, but Alan Feifer, a pilot, disagreed. He said fuel at the airport is priced at $5.60 a gallon while fuel in Quincy is $4.90. Feifer said the airport is not being marketed effectively. He said it is not advertised in avia tion magazines or on websites for pilots. He said trafc at the airport has dropped by 50 per cent over the last 10 years. Marketing is whats miss ing, Feifer said. Puckett said comparing the two airports was like apples and oranges because Quincy is an unattended airport. Feifer said service at Apalachicolas airport is excel lent, but youre going to run into a pricing issue with most people. Jackel said, If youre go ing to have a 70-cent differ ence in price, you need to make adjustments. She suggested people might be happy to pump their own gas to pay less. Puckett said most visitors to the Apalachicola air port are well-to-do and expect service. I would never pump my own gas, he said. LAND TRUST from page A1

McCarron said DOT does annual rut, ride and crack surveys of state roads, with highways slated for resur facing when they are rated 6.5 or less on a scale of 1 to 10. He said the section of U.S. 98 in question is ap proaching 6.5. It probably wont be this year, but the time is coming. McCarron said the pave ment on the westbound lane is older than the eastbound and that when the west bound lane was deemed sub standard, the state would probably repave the entire road. He said the state is trying to optimize the life of the current paving project and that the average life of a paved road is 14 years. Commissioner Noah Lockley said DOT was not taking into consideration the fact that U.S. 98 carries all east-west trafc in the county. It wasnt sufciently put back in 2005 when Hurricane Dennis came through, Commission Chairman Cheryl Sanders said. They only came in and patched it. Weve (dealt with the problem for) years. Something needs to be done with that road. Its on the scenic byway, so it should be up to par. The worst section is from the school to Yent Bayou. Somebodys already been killed, but there will be more if the road dont get xed. McCarron said because U.S. 98 is a state road, ARPC only continues to express concerns about safety. Jackel asked why the county is only in line for a single state road project af ter 2016. In 2018, the state has allotted $377,000 to con struct a bike path from the St. George Island Bridge to U.S. 98. In 2015, $76,000 has been allotted for planning and engineering of the path. McCarron said the lack of state road maintenance projects was unusual. You dont have that many state roads, he said. McCarron said the work schedule is dynamic, and projects may be added af ter annual surface evalua tions are reviewed. He said though projects listed for the rst three years are very likely to be completed, work scheduled for years four and ve is much more subject to change. Three more bike paths are mentioned in the veyear work plan. Allotted in 2015 is $1,000 for planning a bike path from Carrabelle Beach Park to River Road just west of the Tillie Miller Bridge; and $2,000 for planning and engineering a bike path to run 4.2 miles between Al ligator Point Marina and Gulf Shore Boulevard on Al ligator Point. A fourth path is planned between County Road 65 and Hickory Dip Road in Eastpoint; a pro jected $403,000 has been earmarked for that project in 2018. More than $7 million has been allocated to mainte nance and improvement of the airports in Apalachicola and Carrabelle over the next ve years. Apalachicola Re gional Airport will receive an estimated $6.3 million. Next year, the state will spend $1.5 million to improve stormwater abatement at Cleve Randolph Field and $265,000 to rehabilitate run way 18/36. An additional $200,000 will be spent on the project in 2016 and $662,000 in 2017. In 2018, $306,000 will be spent on runway 06/24. In 2019, $3 million is earmarked for repaving at Apalachicolas airport, $500,000 for drainage repairs and $80,000 for a master plan update. Thompson Field in Car rabelle is scheduled to receive $697,000 over the next four years. Next year, $182,000 is earmarked to extend the runway. In 2016, $90,000 is earmarked for a GPS survey of the airport. In 2017, $215,000 is slated to construct a parking apron, and in 2018, $210,000 is ear marked to update the secu rity fence. Other proposed projects include the repair of two bridges on state roads. In 2015, $2,000 will be spent on Graham Creek Bridge and $2,000 on Cash Creek Bridge, both on State Road 65. Carrabelle will get some new sidewalks in 2017-18. A paved walkway will be con structed along Tallahassee Street from Avenue A to Crooked Creek Road at an estimated cost of $696,000. In 2016, $1.4 million is ear marked to resurface Bald Point Road. Next year, the DOT has earmarked $195,000 to re surface Bluff Road from U.S. 98 to Pine Log Road. Apalachicola has a resur facing project too. In 2017, Ellis Van Vleet and 17th streets will be widened and resurfaced at an estimated cost of $209,000. Special to the Times An important milestone was cel ebrated at the Cape St. George Light house on July 26, when the 100,000th individual to climb the lighthouse since its reconstruction made it to the top of the 77-foot tower. Karsyn Rae Nauss, 10, from For syth, Ga., was the history-making climber. She was awarded a lifetime free climbing pass, a framed com memorative certicate and a gift bas ket from the Lighthouse Gift Shop. Jeannie Nauss accompanied her two daughters, Karsyn and 8-year-old sister Avery, on the lighthouse climb. The family visits St. George Island often for shing and beach vacations, but this was their rst visit to the his toric lighthouse, Jeannie said. Karsyn said she loved the view from the top of the lighthouse, looking out over the Gulf of Mexico and Apala chicola Bay, and said she felt really special and lucky to be the 100,000th climber. She said she plans to climb to the top of the lighthouse every time the Nauss family visits St. George Island. After keeping a close count of climbers every day through July, Lighthouse Keeper Jim Dunkin and Gift Shop Manager Carol Talley were on hand to participate in the milestone moment and make the award presen tation to the 100,000th climber. Before automation of the light house in 1949, lighthouse keepers made thousands of climbs to the lan tern room to light or extinguish the lamp and perform daily maintenance duties. After 1949, U.S. Coast Guards men made the occasional climb to change the batteries that operated the modern beacon. When the lighthouse was decommissioned in 1994, only the rare curiosity seeker or lighthouse enthusiast attempted the increasingly treacherous climb. After the lighthouse collapsed on Oct. 21, 2005, the St. George Light house Association led the effort to reconstruct it. Rebuilt at the center of St. George Island to protect it from continued erosion on Little St. George, the lighthouse opened to the public in December 2008. In 5 years, 100,000 individuals have replicated the climb up the 92 stairs and the eight-rung ladder to the top, just like the keepers of old. Karsyn Nauss, center, was honored as the 100,000th climber at the Cape St. George Lighthouse. She is pictured with her mother, Jeannie Nauss, sister Avery Nauss and Lighthouse Gift Shop Manager Carol Talley, at right. SPECIAL TO THE TIMES Island lighthouse hosts 100,000th climber
