Oysters short as BP checks flow

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
With compensation checks easily
available, oystering has slowed to a crawl
on Apalachicola Bay.
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services (FDACS) Com-
missioner Charles Bronson referred to
the problem when he appeared before a
special meeting of the county commis-
sion Tuesday afternoon. He promised
extra marketing support for the seafood
industry and vowed to open the oyster
bars for harvesting if oil contamination
appears inevitable.
But he added, "The problem right now
appears to be finding someone to harvest
the oysters."

WILSON from page Al

The following is statement
by Wilson announcing his candi-
"Hi, I am Charles Wilson. I
am a fourth-generation native
of Apalachicola. I am married
to Carolyn Wilson, my wife of
42 years. I have two daughters,
Kim Creamer, of Apalachicola,
and Diane Wilson, of Panama
City, and three grandchildren,
Charles Collins and Victoria Du-
val, of Panama City, and Bradley
Creamer, of Apalachicola. I at-
tend the First Assembly of God
Church here in Apalachicola and
have been involved in the church

government for several years, 12
as a deacon, and a lay minister
for about 15 years.
"I am a Vietnam veteran and
also the founder and president
of the Vietnam Vets of Franklin
County. I started this organization
about 21 years ago. I also own and
operate Capt. Charles Charters. I
have worked on the bay for about
54 years. I started oystering with
my stepdad, Jerry Tipton, after
my father passed away when I
was 7. I have oystered, shrimped
and crabbed. I charter fish and
have a vast knowledge of the bay
and will work to protect it.

"I am currently working with
many of you in the Vessel of Op-
portunity program to keep the
oil from entering our bay. I look
forward to working with the sea-
food workers and charter fisher-
men and all the business owners
of Franklin County if given the
opportunity. I have been to Tal-
lahassee and other places with
my late cousin, Donnie Wilson, to
meet with different officials about
the concerns of the bay. Just as
Donnie was an advocate for the
seafood workers and the future of
our bay, if given the opportunity, I
will fight to keep our heritage and

way of life.
"I have worked beside many of
you, and you know me and the ex-
perience that I have. I will listen
to you, the men and the women
that work on the water to provide
for your families. I want to be a
voice for you as well as the busi-
ness owners of Franklin County.
We are experiencing tough times,
but if we work together, we will
overcome. I welcome your input
- this is our county; it belongs
to us all. No matter who you are,
I will work for all the people of
Franklin County.
"I would like to ask you for

your vote and support in the
upcoming election in August. If
elected to this office, I will be ac-
cessible to my constituents. My
phone number is in the book, and
my cell number is on the answer-
ing machine message. If elected,
I will do my best to serve you to
the best of my ability. I am like
most of you; I work. The bay is
also my livelihood.
"I am trying to see all of you
before the election. If you would
like to speak to me about your
concerns, or work in my cam-
paign, please give me a call at
653-9008. Thank you."

As of Monday, BP had

Checks totaling nearly
$5 million had been issued
in the state, with about half

Meanwhile, Lynn Mar-

is having trouble getting
enough oysters to stay in

oystermen are not working
because they are receiving
compensation from BP
A spokesperson for Wa-

are only receiving about 10
percent of their normal take
of oysters.
At 13 Mile Seafood, the
oyster house was able to ob-

'I've pulled trucks
off the road'
Martina normally em-
ploys 14 people in her pro-
cessing plant and buys
oysters from up to 25 oys-
termen. On Monday, she
had two employees on the
payroll and expected to buy
product from no more than
10 oystermen.
She said her business
normally processes 75 to
100 bags of oysters per day;
over the weekend she re-
ceived a total of 13 bags.
"I've pulled trucks off
the road. I've got trucks for
sale because I can't afford
to pay the insurance," she
said. "We didn't get enough
oysters in to shuck today.
It's sad. It's really, really
sad. I would love to draw
money and stay home. My
nerves are shot. How long
can I keep my doors open
doing what I'm doing? Not
very long."
Martina said she is also
concerned about the in-
crease in her power use
because of the new sum-
mertime oyster cooling re-
quirements, but has not yet
received a bill.
"I feel like it's a buyout
for BP and I hate to see
people fall for this," she
said. "It's absurd. Texas is

open (to oystering) and I
tried to order oysters from
there, but oystermen there
are going to Louisiana to
work for BP"
Martina said she can
apply to BP for compensa-
tion for loss of business but
"$5,000 won't pay my utility
She has been offered a
Small Business Administra-
tion loan. "I asked them 'do
you want to loan me money
when I'm about to go out
of business?'" she said. "I
could never pay it back."
She said has signed up
with an attorney to partici-
pate in a class action suit.
"That's the only hope I
have," she said.
Franklin County Seafood
Workers Association Presi-
dent Taunya James said
about half of the association
members have applied to
BP for compensation. She
said oysters might not be
available even without the
BP subsidy.
"The oystering is bad,"
James said. There's not
oysters there because they
didn't spawn right last year.
I've been trying to get a re-
seeding program. When you
pick up an oyster it should
have baby oysters attached
to it. These have nothing."
Joe Shields, environ-

mental administrator for
FDACS' Division of Aqua-
culture whose job is shell-
fish assessment, disagrees
with James. Figures pro-
vided by FDACS showing
a 20-year average indicate
that while shell length is
slightly below average this
year, the number of oysters
per square yard is above
"There are plenty of
oysters in the summer har-
vesting areas," he said. "If
there's nothing out there,
why did the association and
dealers request an extra
harvest day?"
On Friday, Bronson, to-
gether with Rodney Barre-
to, chairman of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC),
announced that the sum-
mer oyster harvesting ar-
eas in the Apalachicola Bay
System will now include
harvest on Saturdays, giv-
ing fishermen six days of
harvesting per week.
The summer oyster ar-
eas are normally closed
for harvest on Fridays and
Saturdays in June, July
and August, and this is the
first time that the two agen-
cies, which jointly manage
oyster resources in Flori-
da, have implemented this

Training boom arrives in Riverside Park in Apalachicola.

First boom arrives in county

By Lois Swobodo
Times StaffWriter
On Tuesday, the first shipment of long
awaited deflecting boom finally arrived in
Franklin County.
Employees of Calvin, Giardano and
Associates (CGA) and United Recovery,
a subcontractor hired to install the first
section of the county's oil spill defensive
plan, were jubilant as the first truckloads
of boom arrived.
United employees unloaded 1,200 feet
of the floating plastic cushions in River-
side Park, where CGA spokesman Chuck
Tear said it will be used to train local
Tear has promised county residents
will deploy the final stage of the defensive
plan and will be employed in cleanup if it
becomes necessary..
Additional training to prepare work-
ers for hazmat certification began at the
Apalachicola National Estuarine Re-
search Reserve Headquarters on Tues-
The rest of the boom delivery was
taken to Lombardi Seafood Park, where
it will be kept under guard. The park is
closed indefinitely while the oil mitigation
project is in progress.
Earlier on Tuesday, approximately
2,000 feet of boom was deployed around
the St. George Island Bridge.
Jamie Crum, director of Fickling Vaca-
tion Properties, reported seeing orange
boom lowered from the high point of the
bridge around lunchtime.
Later in the day, only a 100-foot section
of white boom was easily visible tethered
between the fishing pier and an old piling

at Cat Point.
Tear said the different colors of boom
are produced by different manufacturers.
Emergency Management Director
Pam Brownell said both sections of boom
deployed by the bridge were part of the
initial defensive deployment.
Tear said the boom initially is lowered
into place and then drawn in to a more
protected position and fastened so it can
later be released to float into its planned
As installation of the county's defen-
sive plan begins, some residents are sug-
gesting additional defenses be added to
the arsenal.
There has been talk of temporarily
closing Bob Sikes Cut.
Del Snyder presented oil-absorbent
foam to the Carrabelle city commission
last Thursday. Snyder wants to deploy the
material in crab traps across the floor of
Dickerman Cut to exclude oil rolling in on
the bottom.
He said the foam will absorb 26 times
its own weight in crude oil and can then
be burned, leaving only traces of ash. "No-
body's doing anything about the oil on the
bottom," he said.
Snyder said Unified Energy Consul-
tants, who manufacture the foam, could
come here and extrude the product on
site. He said it could also be used to create
floating boom that would absorb sheen
and floating oil and not simply deflect it.
All that's lacking is the funding. He
might pay to protect Dickerman Cut him-
self, but if anyone wants more information
about the foam, they can contact him at

What, me worry? When World Cup awaits?

What, me worry? When World Cup awaits?

The dreadful worry
of waiting for the apoca-
lypse has me searching
for a circus to occupy my
mind. I want a drama
to follow that does not
involve oil-soaked birds
and impending doom. RED
The disaster looms, and AND
I don't know what to do. Deni
I hope this doesn't
sound frivolous, but I've
decided on the World Cup. A
billion people are projected to
watch the final match in July,
and I'm planning to join the
global brotherhood. My heart is
breaking, but perhaps this bit of
sport might provide a momen-
tary bit of diversion.
The process began when the
latest issue of Vanity Fair maga-
zine arrived in the mail. The
cover was adorned with soccer
players in their shorts and un-
derwear. Photographer extraor-
dinaire Annie Leibovitz took
pictures of players whose names
will be spread around the world
from June 11 to July 11. The
photo spread continued with
brief descriptions of why these
might be some of the young men

to watch this summer.
Times of London writ-
Ser A.A. Gill provided the
S back story, designed to
provide Americans with
SSsome context for enjoy-
ing the games. This year,
WHITE ESPN and ABC will see
IROUX to it that all 64 matches

e oux is one of the 32 compet-
Gill is my hero when it comes
to column writing. I have found
few American writers who come
even close to his wicked wit and
observations of modern life.
His Vanity Fair article provided
me with numerous fun facts
to share with my students and
friends. He joins others when
he calls soccer the "Beautiful
Game." He reminds us that an
estimated 715 million people
watched the World Cup Final in
2006. He writes that 204 nations
tried to qualify for this year's
cup. He recounts the 1950 game
between powerhouse Brazil and
Uruguay, when the underdog
emerged victorious and Brazil
still feels the sting of shame.
He notes that El Salvador and



Honduras were pushed to war
over a game. He reminds us
that the United Kingdom fields
four teams: England, Scotland,
Wales, and Northern Ireland.
My interest in soccer has
generally been peripheral. I
lived in Tampa during the '70s
when there was a professional
team. They had a great jingle,
"The Rowdies arrrrrrrre a
kick in the grass." The team
personality was of party-hearty
guys who frequented the
T.G.I.Friday's in Hyde Park.
Youth soccer took off and Row-
dies players were often seen on
community playing fields. I even
went to a couple games. Tickets

were cheap, and it was fun, with
a family friendly crowd of fans.
More recently, I have fol-
lowed the soccer program at
Franklin County High School.
It is now a varsity sport fielding
both male and female teams.
Coaches David Cox and Kelly
Maggio were in the cafeteria on
the last day of school talking to
players and setting the stage for
the summer and next year.
Our athletic program has
stepped up, involving students
who are empowered by their
participation in soccer.
I have never been a big
sports fan. I'll watch some
Florida State University foot-
ball or maybe the final game of
the World Series. I like a good
story, though, and sports often
provides it. The bad call by
the umpire in the recent De-
troit-Cleveland game is a case
in point. Both the pitcher and
the official have behaved honor-
ably and honestly. There are life
lessons to be learned in all the
brouhaha. Admit a mistake and
then, on the other side, be gra-
cious enough to accept the apol-
ogy and move on.

I suspect the World Cup will
offer heartbreak, drama and in-
spiration. The web is full of sto-
ries and for many, national pride
is at stake. I can't go that far, but
I will be rooting for Team USA
when they face England on June
12 (ABC, 2:30 p.m., live from
Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace in
Rustenburg, South Africa).
I want to feel part of the
world's interest and involve-
ment. We can say that it's only
a game, but for so many it is
I also acknowledge that we
are all in this crazy present
together. Everyone everywhere
is watching the deadly tendril
of oil kill the Gulf. We can't do
a single thing. We can only
celebrate what we have right
now while we put shrimp in the
freezer and pray.
I believe that we are allowed
to take a bit of time to enjoy the
Beautiful Game.

Special to the Times
I can remember when I
was in ninth grade watch-
ing my sister graduate high
school and
I couldn't
wait until
that was me
on stage
HEATHER my diploma
KEMPER and turning
my tassel.
And then I blinked. Look-
ing back, it seems like four
years has came and went
faster than I could ever
imagine they would and
now it's graduation day and
all our lives are about to
We could reminisce
forever on high school life
and all our experiences we
had during high school, but
today isn't about the past,
it's about all of our futures
and what lies ahead. Today
is the day we transition out
of high school and into the
world. I believe each and
every one of my classmates
graduating today has a
purpose for their life that
is beyond what they them-
selves can even imagine.
There are future lawyers,
doctors, teachers, chefs

and even presidents in this
room today. We all have
made it this far, so I know
we can accomplish any-
thing and everything our
hearts desire.
Don't see today as the
end; see it as the begin-
ning of the rest of your
lives. Never take anything
for granted and thank God
for every day you wake up
breathing. Work toward ac-
complishing your dreams
and never let anyone get in
the way. There will always
be people there who try to
break your spirit, but rise
above them. Even though it
may be hard to keep mov-
ing, just keep looking at the
light in the distance and
remember that it's worth
it. I can't count how many
times I've been on the brink
of giving up because of peo-
ple who have tried to keep
me down, but I realized that
that is all they want, and in
your life all that matters is
what you want for yourself.
Ignore hurtful words
and embrace kind gestures
and give out of the good of
your heart. There is a quote
by Ralph Waldo Emerson
that I try to live my life by.
It states "To know even one
life has breathed easier
because you have lived -
that is to have succeeded."

us. We have to make it hap-

always be rainbows and
butterflies, but every day
is worth living. Never lose
yourself or your dreams

ate, even to those who show
no compassion.
I would like to thank God
we made it here. I also want
to thank my parents for lov-
ing me unconditionally and
always being the shoulders
to cry on, and my beautiful
sister, who I admire more
than she realizes. To Ms.
Gavigan, Ms. Roux and all
my teachers, I appreciate
the time and effort you
gave, going above and be-
yond what is expected out
of a teacher because of the
kindness in your hearts.
Class of 2010, we finally
made it. I will leave with
one last saying by Ralph

lies behind us and what
lies before us are tiny mat-

Special to the Times
My school career start-
ed in the first grade when
my teacher called my mom
and told
her thatI
needed to
be checked
for ADD
and put on
Ritalin. My
mom told
RUSSELL her she
SIMMONS would do no
such thing
and told her to give me
more to do, and thus my
education kicked off.

Overall, I have spent
more time with this class
over the years from sixth
grade until now than I
have with my family, so in
graduating I feel as if I am
leaving my family.
Many people from out-
side of this community
look at our small school
and turn their noses to
us. However, how many
of those people cannot
say they went to a school
where they knew everyone
in their graduating class,
and even those in grades
below them? We're more
than just a school; we're

How a shrimp sees the oil spill
This is an open letter to BP and all
those responsible for the current GLOP in
the Gulf water:
Shrimping is a way of life along the
Gulf Coast. By personalizing the life of
a shrimp, perhaps you will understand,
using your intelligence and imagination,
what your creation of GLOP (descriptive
word of the mess) means to me, a single
shrimp, all shrimp, sea life, sea birds,
fisher people, and lovers of the Gulf.
As a penaeid shrimp, my major role
in life is to grow to a size that is good for
the dinner table. When the fishermen and
women pull in their net devices called
trawls, they will keep me. The GLOP now
makes this action impossible. In fact, I
am lucky to still be alive to tell this story.
(Itawls, by the way, have been around
since the 12th century.)
We shrimp have been eaten for
thousands of years. My relatives and
I make up 4,000 species of shrimp. We
live in cold or warm ocean waters and in
freshwater streams and lakes. Marine
experts Jack and Anne Rudloe, write:
"All shrimp are essential links in marine
food chains." I went through many stag-
es of life to become an edible shrimp.
Because of the GLOP it will be hard for
the cycle to life to continue for shrimp
like me in my particular neighborhood
(and who knows how it will affect other
areas?). I was barely visible to your hu-
man eye when I was hatched. I grew an
inch each month, and now I live on the
sea floor. Each shrimp is a miracle. We
have been re-creating since the begin-
ning of time. My mother and all mother

a school of deep connec-
tions. When you look to
the left and right and see
the senior next to you, you
know that their parents
might be co-workers or
even good friends but
in some way they know
each other. They have all
experienced the hardship
that comes with living
in this small community,
sometimes just getting by,
paycheck by paycheck. In
this it brings us all a little
closer together.
This past week I had


shrimps release up to a million eggs.
We are an essential link in the marine
food chain. One of the largest meadows
of sea grass occurs on the Florida Gulf
Coast, beginning in the Keys, and extend-
ing to St. Marks in northern Florida. "The
grasses seethe with life," write the Rud-
loes. Most creatures (including myself; the
shrimp) graze on the hundreds of species
of delicate hair-like or encrusting crea-
tures that attach themselves to the blades
(of seagrass). We shrimp scour "the roots,
stems, and leaves," eating algae, mollusks
and crustaceans, so the sun's rays are not
blocked. Without this process, there would
be no seagrass, creating an upheaval to
the ecosystem.
Prior to the GLOP when I WAS ABLE
to go to the sunlight out in the Gulf; I was
surrounded by a metropolis of phytoplank-
ton. Did you know that a cup of sea water
contains millions of microscopic crea-
tures? I, the shrimp, fear for our oceans,
as long as human beings use us, instead
of loving and respecting us. That is why I
have shared my story with you.
Note: My thanks to Jack and Anne
Rudloe, pioneers in the protection of our
magical waters, for allowing me to rely on
their book for this information about the
awesome life in our Gulf of Mexico. I en-
courage you to read their book, "Shrimp,
The Endless Quest for Pink Gold," to cre-
ate circles of friends to discuss the book,
and to create a plan of how to help now
and in the future.

Tardy seniors had grad night
memories taken away
Parents and relatives were in-
formed that some students were
not allowed into the lockdown on
graduation night because they didn't
arrive at the designated time. Some
students had been with family mem-
bers enjoying the celebration of their
I know there are rules, but there

is also an exception to the rules. The
students should not have had this
night taken away from them, some-
thing they can never recapture.
I understand that a police officer
tried an attempt to get the late stu-
dents in, but some parent organizers
refused to let them in. I hope this
wasn't a case of discrimination.
God forbid if something had hap-
pened to these kids coming back to
Apalachicola. These students were

upset, and perhaps angry, and the
fact they had to get behind the wheel
to drive back across the bridges to
Apalachicola makes me shiver.
The monetary amount each
student was to receive needs to be
redone so that each student can get
their fair share.
This situation needs to be looked
into with great seriousness and
should never happen again.

The Times I AS

SEAHAWKS from page Al

Educator offers advice on meeting challenges

youth leadership program and
chair of the Franklin County
Education Foundation.
Mendez-Catlin opened
her remarks by turning the
podium around to face the
seniors, and from there on,
mixed personal anecdotes
into a message tailored to the
concerns of seniors as they
face the uncertainty of their
adult futures.
Adopting the format of a
"Top Ten" list, similar to what
one might see on a late night
talk show, Mendez-Catlin of-
fered 10 points she said were
essential for young people to
hear on this momentous oc-
She began by reminding
them to remember that God
directs their path in life, and
to keep that belief close to
their hearts. "There's indeed a
higher power that's in charge
of us all," she said. "There will
be a time when you will have
to put your whole life under
His control."
Next, as No. 9, Mendez-
Catlin urged the students
appreciate and absorb the
important role played in their
lives by those older genera-
"Don't dismiss your el-
ders," she said. "That higher
power has sent us to you so
you don't have to go through
what we did. Listen to their
stories and take something
away from it. Recognize their
importance now, while they
are alive."
Next on Mendez-Catlin's
list was a call to "toughen up,"
but not so much that you can't
learn to laugh at yourself. "It
won't sting as hard," she said.
"Don't be so serious."
Adapting to challenges and
remaining flexible were Men-
dez-Catlin's No. 7, which she
said were both part of a need
to take risks. "Don't be afraid
to make mistakes," she said.
Since "talk is cheap," the

veteran educator moved next
to an admonition to "let your
actions speak for you. Be true
to your word."
No. 5, Mendez-Catlin said,
was the overriding impor-
tance to "stop and smell the
roses," a point in keeping
with the tradition, conducted
after students received their
diplomas, of their venturing
into the audience to hand the
class flower, a red tulip, to
parents or loved ones.
"Once you see that light (at
the end of the tunnel), life is
wonderful," she said. "Unplug
everything and enjoy life. Your
family is extremely important;
always enjoy that.
No. 4 Mendez-Catlin said,
was to remember that per-
sonal identity is made up of
much more than material
wealth. "You are not your pos-
sessions, and they should not
be what defines you," she
said. "You are spirit, soul and
The No. 3 item on her list
was to "be true to yourself,"
which led to the second most
important thing, to "never be
too afraid or too proud to ask
for help."
Lastly, topping Mendez-
Catlin's list was a call for the
seniors to persevere and over-
come the challenges ahead.
"We will find a way, or we will
make one," she said. "I think
from working with all of you,
you can achieve anything. You
are the only person who can
define yourself."
She left the students with
two challenges, to "always do
your best, perfection is over-
rated" and to "work had to
help others get to the point,
wherever you are," once
an achievement is reached.
"Your life awaits you," Men-
dez-Catlin said in closing.
"Jump on in."
Following the procession-
al, done to "Pomp and Cir-
cumstance" played skillfully
by the high school band, Da-

mien Davis, class president,
led the Pledge of Allegiance.
One man yelled out the words
"under God" in his recitation
of the pledge, loud enough for
the entire auditorium to hear.
Angeline Stanley, senior
class co-sponsor, then of-
fered an exceptionally stir-
ring rendition of the National
Ashley Moseley, the presi-
dent-elect of next year's se-
nior class, gave the invocation,
following the torch ceremony,
in which this year's senior
class officers light candles
for officers in the class of
Salutatorian Kendyl Cathe-
rine Hardy gave the welcome,
including a heartfelt prayer to
God, and then co-valedictori-
ans Heather Lynne Kemper
and Russell Wayne Simmons
then gave their speeches (see
Page A4).
Following Mendez-Catlin's
remarks, four seniors from
the class performed the class
song, Corey Smith "I'm Not
Gonna Cry. Kruiz Dickerson
on guitar, Chase Richards on
guitar and vocals, Levi Odom
on bongos and Lane Roberts
on keyboard drew a rich ova-

orientation at FSU. It gave me a taste
of how campus life really is. During
the orientation we had little contact
with our parents. It's not that we
didn't want them there; FSU was
determined to rip the umbilical cord
from us and show us how it will be.
When we registered for classes, our
parents were not allowed to be in
We had an inspirational speaker the
last night of orientation, Curtis Zim-
merman. He is a professional juggler,
mime, and clown. To learn to juggle
you're going to drop the balls many
times. He explained you must not be
afraid to drop the balls. You have to
be willing to drop them, and when you
do be happy about it, because you're
that much closer to perfecting your
skill. The same can be applied to life.
Everybody makes mistakes, but you
have to be willing to accept the fact
that mistakes happen. Just learn from
those mistakes and move on.
Before I close out there are a few
people I must thank. First of all I have
to thank God. He is the one that has
helped me through all the hard times
and guided me through my many
decisions. He has kept his hand over
me and kept me safe throughout high
school. Mrs. Humble, without your
help I never would have been able
to get into FSU. You helped me with
my essays and encouraged me the
whole way. Any time I needed help I
knew you could provide it for me. Mrs.
Creek, I've also learned the great ben-
efit you get when you help somebody
without them asking, and if they do
doing it the first time they ask. My par-
ents; they have been there for me the
WHOLE way. ALWAYS pushing and
prodding me encouraging me to do the
things not everyone else would do, to
go a step farther than what would just
"get me by." For this I thank them with
all of my heart. I love you guys.
It has been a long 13 years, and for
some of us even 14. High school was
too much for some and they didn't
make it, but congratulations guys, we
made it.

sealed at a designated time to
prevent anyone from entering
or leaving the building to
ensure the event remains
alcohol-, drug- and tobacco-
free for the remainder of
the night. The students are
rewarded with food, games,
gifts and a monetary reward
for attending. The event is
funded through supporting
businesses as well as a
hardworking small group of
parents coordinating multiple
fundraisers throughout the
school year, with everything
from fish fries to "kiss the pig."
This year Project
Graduation parents were
also asked to coordinate
baccalaureate and obliged
with much enthusiasm.
Many attendees commented
that this baccalaureate
felt more like a church
service than in times past.
In the midst of preparing
our seniors for graduation,
applying for scholarships,
applying for colleges and
making preparations, these
same parents worked hard
coordinating this event while
continuing to raise money
and coordinate Project
Graduation. The exhaustion
was evident on the faces of

the parents at the beginning
of Project Graduation but
was hidden behind a smile
of accomplishment. The
graduates participated in
games that were made
popular by the show "Minute
to Win It." One of the games
involved seeing who could
stack the most Oreos on their
forehead, and another one
required them to stick their
nose in Vaseline, pick up a
cotton ball and transfer it to
another bowl. The graduates
also enjoyed an all-night
buffet made possible by local

2009 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
Alligator Point Water Resource District
We arepleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant
goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our
water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your drinking water. Our water source is ground waterfrom six wells drawn from the Floridan Aquifer. Because ofthe excellent
quality of our water, the only treatments required are chlorine for disinfection purposes andAquamag, which is a polyphosphate compound injected as a sequestering agent that neutralizes scale
and corrosion.
In 2009 the Department ofEnvironmental Protection performed a Source WaterAssessment on our system and a search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near
our wells. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source WaterAssessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.f.usAswapp.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contactAPWRD, Tom Vander Plaats at (850) 349-2274. We encourage our valued customers to be informed
about their water utility. Ifyou want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held monthly on the third Saturday of each month at 9:00 a.m., at the Al
ligator Point Fire Department Building on Highway 370.
Alligator Point routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based
on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December31, 2009. Data obtained before January 1, 2009, andpresented in this report are from the most recent testing done in
accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you mayfind unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we have provided the following definitions:
Action Level (AL): The concentration ofa contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to
identify distribution system locations with high concentrations oftrihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their
Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level ofa contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treat-
ment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal orMCLG: The level ofa contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin ofsafety.
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level or MRDL: The highest level ofa disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition ofa disinfectant is necessaryfor
control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal or MRDLG: The level ofa drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the
benefits of the use ofdisinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Non-Applicable (N/A): Does not apply
Non-Detect (ND): means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg1): one part by weight ofanalyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (pb) or Micrograms per liter ug/l): onepart by weight ofanalyte to 1 billion parts by weight ofthe water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in water.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especiallyfor pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water isprimarilyfrom materials and components
associated with service lines and home plumbing. Alligator Point Water Resource District is responsible forproviding high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials
used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize thepotential for lead exposure byflushing your tap for30seconds to 2 minutes before
using water for drinking or cooking. Ifyou are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps
you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline orat htt.://www.epa.govAsafewater/lead.
The State ofFlorida Department ofEnvironmental Protection (DEP) sets drinking water standard for secondary contaminants and has determined that Chloride and TotalDissolved Solids
are aesthetic concerns at certain levels of exposure. Chloride and Total Dissolved Solids were sampled in August 2009 and were fund in higher levels than are allowed by the State (MCL
violations). Chloride and Total Dissolved Solids, as secondary drinking water contaminants, do notpose a health risk. We will continue to sample as required by rule.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through
the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resultingfrom the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production, mining, orfarming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas
stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which mustprovide the sameprotection forpublic health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts ofsome contaminants. The presence ofcontaminants does not necessarily indicate that
the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants andpotential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing yourfamily with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make im-
provements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the generalpopulation. Immuno-compromisedpersons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemo-
therapy,persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections.
These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium
and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We work to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children's
future. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

Abel was a loving and
wonderful husband for
61 years to the love of his
life, Jeanne. They met as
"kids," fell in love, and
started their journey of a

After Abel retired
in 1982 from L.O.F and
Jeanne in 1983 from St.
Charles Hospital, they
built and moved into their
dream home in Eastpoint,
where they remain. They
have enjoyed their lives
together tremendously
and made many moments
to remember.
Abel was an avid fisher-
man who loved fishing the
Core Banks, Lake Erie
and anywhere in Florida.
He was also a tremendous
athlete excelling in basket-
ball, baseball and bowling.
He was an avid Florida
State University football

Abel was a "man's

his family and friends. He
was honest, caring and the
best friend you could ever
have. He was generous
and always there to lend a
helping hand.

Special to the Times
Officers with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission last month cited
a vessel captain with pot
Officers Woody Cook
and Carmon Brownell were
dispatched to inspect a
commercial reef fish vessel
under the individual fishing
quota. The officers boarded
the vessel as it entered the
Apalachicola River, and after
ascertaining it was the one
they were waiting for, they
followed it to Scipio Creek to
observe the offload of reef
fish. The officers conducted
an inspection of vessel
documents, permits and the
marine sanitation device.
During the inspection, the
officers noticed the strong
odor of burnt cannabis
emanating from the vessel
cabin. When asked about
the odor, the vessel captain
produced from his pants a bag
of cannabis and a pipe. The
officers issued misdemeanor
citations of possession of
cannabis and paraphernalia.

The captain was also cited
with a marine sanitation
device violation.
Working in conjunction
with the Resource Protection
Unit, Cook and Brownell also
conducted vessel boardings
on commercial oyster vessels
harvesting on Apalachicola
Bay. The vessels had been
observed harvesting oysters
from conditionally restricted
waters. Three harvesters were
issued misdemeanor citations
of harvesting oysters from
conditionally restricted waters.

Resource Protection Unit
officers Ryan Knutson and
Travis Huckeba were working
the area of Alligator Point
last month observing vessels
offload their catch when they
noticed four men watching
them and acting suspiciously
while loading a white cooler
off a boat into the back of
a Polaris Ranger UTV As
the officers approached, the
men cranked the Ranger
up and attempted to leave.
The officers stopped them,
identified themselves as FWC
officers and inspected their

catch. They found a king
mackerel and a gag grouper
measuring 20 inches in length
in the ice chest. Knutson cited
one man with possession of an
undersize gag grouper.
Lt. Kent Harvey was
working the area of
Ochlocknee Bay when he
noticed a boat with four
individuals onboard entering
the barge canal. Harvey
observed fishing gear in the
rod holders rigged to catch
reef fish. When they docked
the boat, Harvey attempted
to strike up a conversation,
but the occupants avoided
him and seemed in a hurry
to trailer the boat. After
observing for a few more
minutes, Harvey identified
himself as an FWC officer,
inspected their catch in
an ice chest and found the
individuals in possession of six
red snapper, two gag grouper,
amberjack, black snapper, and
Key West grunts. The two gag
grouper and amberjack were
undersize, and the fishermen
were cited with that, as well
as possession of red snapper
during the closed season.
