Waterspouts leave island in dark

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
Power was restored to about
one-third of St. George Island cus-
tomers by noon Wednesday, after
two waterspouts plunged the is-
land into darkness Monday night.
Progress Energy spokesperson
Suzanne Grant said about 5,000
customers on the island and in

Eastpoint lost power at about 8:15
p.m. Monday, when a line of strong
storms generated two waterspouts
in Apalachicola Bay south of the
channel that destroyed two power
poles, one wooden and one light-
duty metal pole.
Grant said service to Eastpoint
was quickly restored, but 2,200
houses and businesses on the is-
land remained without electricity

as generators were dispatched to
the island.
By noon Wednesday, about
1,600 customers were still waiting
for power to be restored.
"What we've had to do is seg-
ment the island into multiple dif-
ferent regions," Grant said. "So it's
gone up at different times. We're
continuing to work through our
plans. We had some issues with

Plane crash claims life of wolf biologist

Friends and family and the
environmental movement lost
a wild and golden heart when
Thom Lewis, of St. George
Island, died in a small plane
crash last week.
Lewis, 50, a former wildlife
biologist at St. Vincent Island
National Wildlife Refuge, was
one of two people killed Thurs-
day morning, June 23, after an
Aero Club Beechcraft crashed
at Eglin Air Force Base.

crowds. During the War
of 1812, Francis Scott Key
boarded a British warship
to secure a release of
a captured friend. The
release was not given, and
he was held on the ship
lest he divulge the plans
to attack Fort McHenry
in Baltimore. From the
deck, he watched the
bombardment through the
night and at dawn, through
the smoky haze and
pungent smell of explosives
he saw the hand sewn flag
still waving over the fort.
He set to words his feelings
in a poem entitled "In
Defense of Fort McHenry,"
which was later set to an
old English folk song which
we know today as the
"Star Spangled Banner."
Congress declared it our
national anthem in 1931.
Oh, say, can you see, by
the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we

hailed at the twilight's last
Whose broad stripes
and bright stars, thru the
perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we
watched, were so gallantly
And the rockets' red
glare, the bombs bursting
in air,
Gave proof through the
night that our flag was still
0 say, does that star-
spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free
and the home of the brave?
Two years ago across the
Carrabelle River on Timber
Island, our Carrabelle
volunteer Fire Department
hoisted the Stars and
Stripes to the top of our
ladder truck. High above,
amidst the thundering,
window shaking explosions,
our flag, waving in the
smoky haze, highlighted by
spotlights and rocket bursts
was indeed an awesome
sight. I was deeply moved
and thought of Francis Scott
Key on that ship deck nearly
200 years ago.
What a great nation we
have and how important
it is to preserve it for
future generations. So, on
the Fourth of July, let us
declare our independence.
Have a safe and happy
Fourth of July.

Health care fears led to Chapman lease

patients and staff -

were in abundance at the
meeting. Tom Daly, Susan
Clementson, and I appeared
to be the only people who
thought maybe this lease
was not such a great idea.
The story in the Times
laid it all out. I was there.
I spoke. It was a fool's
errand. It was obvious from
the outset that the lease
was a foregone conclusion.
Commissioners made
reference to the numerous
constituents in favor of
enabling Sanaullah's move.
I burst into tears after

the meeting. I've spent days
trying to sort this out, and I
think I've got it.

sigh of relief in the room

was the case? Had they been
told that this option was the
only one that would work?

Some different
ideas for using BP
recovery funding
The Franklin County
Commission is now
considering ways to
use its BP Oil Spill
Recovery Finding. In
the Apalachicola Times
issue of June 16, 2011,
we read of the proposal
by Ms. Helen Spohrer
for a publicity program
to stimulate tourism
in Franklin County.
The plan described by
Ms. Spohrer focused
on publicity about the
traditional natural
resources of Franklin
County: seafood and
coastline fun.
We feel that some
of the BP Recovery
Funding should be
used in a different
way - to focus on the
development of the
human potential of
Franklin County. As you
know, the poverty rate
in Franklin County is
still high. Tied to low
income is a low literacy
rate, low post-secondary
education attendance
rate and a scarcity
of "professional"
Especially because of
the effects of the oil spill,
many citizens have lost
their businesses and
other assets. Although
the unemployment
rate of Franklin County
has improved over the
past several months
(Apalachicola Times,
June 9, 2011), there
is still a longstanding
need for more career/
vocational training
and re-training
opportunities and for
new kinds of economic
Here are several
ideas for expanding the
vision and scope of the
economic development
of Franklin County:
1. Micro-credit/
Micro-enterprise programs:
State, federal and
private non-profit
support is needed
to stimulate small

business development
for low-income people.
Many people under the
"poverty line" qualify
for training and loans
to begin their own very
small businesses. These
programs are well
organized; they have a
very high rate of success
in other parts of Florida
as well as throughout
the U.S. and the world.
A great diversity
of businesses have
flourished, that began
as micro-enterprises,
ranging from lawn care,
child care and beauty-
care to production of
foods, jewelry and other
arts, crafts and services.
The old cultures
and industries of
Franklin County,
such as the fishing,
hunting, lumbering,
beekeeping industries,
etc., are still sources
for the development of
arts, crafts, skills and
stories of interest to
tourists. For example,
featuring woodcarving,
shell arts, the
skills of fishing and
netmaking, may deepen
tourist interest and
2. Individual Development
Account programs: IDAs
provide savings
accounts for low-income
people and therefore
start them on the road
to having sound asset
holdings beyond their
current wages. These
programs are funded by
the federal government
and private matching
sources. They are
operated by non-profit
financial literacy/
asset development
organizations. They
train people in financial
literacy and then
provide them with
a matching savings
account. (For example,
if a person saves $10
in the account, federal
funds will match that in
the saver's account, and
so do the other donors
- non-profits as well
as private funders. The
savings can be used to
fund starting a business,

buying a first home or
going to college.
3. Increased support
for arts and information
services: The current
community libraries
are already being
heavily used by Franklin
County residents.
Their programs need
to be funded to expand
and improve facilities,
collections, technology
and staffing, with a focus
on providing career/
vocational development
as well as nurturing
literacy and critical
thinking. Investment in
the library programs
especially can pay
back the community
4. "Green" Career
Training: The environment
has been the rich
resource of Franklin
County. Particularly
since the BP oil spill
has caused so much
damage to our fragile
environment, we need to
focus on using funds to
train people in "green"
research and jobs, to
improve our capacity to
preserve our valuable
wildlife, land and
water resources. The
Apalachicola National
Estuarine Research
Reserve is one such
possible vehicle for this
research and training.
We do appreciate the
efforts that the Board
of Commissioners is
taking in considering
the best use of the BP
Recovery Funds. Our
ideas and programs may
not be new to our area,
but we are suggesting
them for consideration,
along with other ways
to expand the human
"capacity" of this
beautiful place -
in this time of great
economic difficulty
and great paradigm
change. Readers, we
would appreciate your
feedback and your
contacting your county
commissioners about
these ideas.

The Times I AS

Carrabelle lady spins memorable yarns

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
Carrabelle has a new
Lillian Smith shined like a
star at the 59th annual Florida
Folk Festival, held May 27-29
at Stephen Foster Folk Culture
Center State Park.
Miss Lillian traveled to
White Springs with staff
from the Carrabelle History
Museum. She appeared for
30 minutes, twice daily, in the
Folklife area spinning tales of
fishing, shrimping and raising
young'uns in Carrabelle.
Between shows, she
helped man a booth inviting
festivalgoers to visit her
hometown. The booth displayed
everything from oyster boots
to a picture of the elusive
"Carrabelle cat."
"I was really surprised at
how many people were there,"
she said. "It was a big crowd
and there were different people
every time I talked."
Miss Lillian enjoyed learning
about other cultures too. She
experienced Scottish fiddle
playing, Japanese dancing and
Taiwanese cuisine. "I never saw
so much talent," she said.
Miss Lillian told tales about
many aspects of her life on the
water, and one concerned a
close encounter with a jet from
Tyndall Air Force Base.
It was the Fourth of July, and
Lillian and her husband Edgar
were fishing for speckled trout
on the east end of Dog Island.

Suddenly, a jet passed, flying so
low the tops of the trees were
Miss Lillian was so shocked
she fell off her bench to the
floor of the boat.
"It was frightening," she
said, "It was so close you could
almost reach up and touch it
with your reel. He was playing
chicken and it shook me so bad,
I wound up in the hospital for
nine days with a spastic colon."
She also recalled Ira
Metarie, the first mate for the
steamboat Tarpon who arrived
home from each trip, between
Pensacola and Carrabelle, with
a stalk of bananas.
"Us kids followed him and he
didn't have many bananas left
by the time he reached home,"
she said.
Miss Lillian even shared
the story of the time her truck
was stolen by a newly-released
inmate from the mental
hospital in Chattahoochee. "He
stole an axe out of it and left it
in a cornfield in Quincy, where
he stole his brother's truck,"
she said.
Miss Lillian also sang some
gospel tunes. "Whenever I
talked, I finished by telling
them 'I don't fish for fish any
more, now I fish for souls,'" she
Miss Lillian said everyone
was extremely friendly and she
made many new friends who
she hopes to see again, perhaps
at next year's festival.
"I had never been before but
I'd like to go back," she said.

Moms get the skinny on

's health

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
More than 100 women and
their families, volunteers and
sponsors from two counties
took part in the Healthy Start
Coalition's annual Baby Shower
on June 21 in Port St. Joe.
Moms-to-be, as well as new
parents who have had a baby
within the last six months,
gathered at the Centennial
Building, courtesy of the city
of Port St. Joe, for a chance to
learn about such things as car
seat safety and safe sleep. Jason
Flowers, from the Franklin
County Health Department,
served as master of ceremonies
for a host of games and
"I'm seven weeks pregnant
with my first baby," said Jennifer
O'Barr, from Wewahitchka. "My

and invited me to come with
her. I have gotten a lot of good
information tonight to help
me through my pregnancy
and after from all the different
organizations that are here at
the shower. I am so glad that I
Highlighting the program
was an address by Dr. Toni
Pennington, a board-certified
obstetrician and gynecologist
from Emerald Coast OB/GYN of
Panama City, who helped dispel
misconceptions surrounding a
baby's birth.
"I got some good information
on the pregnancy myths from
Dr. Pennington and at the
childbirth and breast-feeding
tables," said Candy Simmons,
from Port St. Joe.
A presentation on the
benefits of breast-feeding,
provided by Ellie Tullis, Healthy

with a newborn, as part of a
presentation on safe sleep.
Car seat safety was the topic
from Terri Pridgen, Healthy
Start care coordinator from
Franklin County, who stressed
the importance of ensuring each
car seat is installed properly.

leave a child in the back seat.
The Life-Meters were purchased
with a grant from the United
Way of Northwest Florida.
Diana Taunton, Healthy
Start care coordinator from Gulf
County, shared how to avoid
three potential threats to infant
safety. She demonstrated the

effects alcohol and substance
abuse have on a baby, and
shared information with
participants to "Never Shake
a Baby." Taunton worked with
three instructional dolls on
her table, providing visual
reinforcement by showing
how areas of the brain of a
baby affected by shaken baby
syndrome lit up, and how a baby
with fetal alcohol syndrome
showed particular facial
Helen Cook, ARNP a care
provider at the Women's
Center at the Gulf County
Health Department, provided
information on interconceptional
care, educating women on how
to take care of their bodies
before pregnancy and discussing
baby spacing.
Patricia Rickards, Healthy
Start care coordinator from Gulf
County, focused on childbirth
education, talking to participants
about positions of labor, comfort
measures during labor and
delivery, and emphasizing that
education helps decrease fear
and anxiety.
Winner of the grand prize, a
$200 gift card to Walmart, was
Glenda Martina, of Apalachicola,
who is three months pregnant.

She said she was very interested
in the topics presented,
especially the lessons on
smoking prevention.
Even dads enjoyed
the shower, with a talk on
fatherhood tailored to their
needs by Russ Petrucka, a
family support worker with
the Franklin County Health
"I came to the shower with
my wife, since we do everything
as a family," said Jonathan
Harper, from Wewahitchka.
"I have a 2-year-old and a 2-
month-old. It's interesting to see
how information and research

The Times I A9

Do not build bricks without straw

In our attempt to
better understand
how parenting
has changed in
our community
over the years, we
conducted a local
survey that asked
questions about
the participant's
childhood. Some

of the questions
asked about their parent's
method of discipline,
if they were required
to share in household
responsibilities, and if
they felt they had been
prepared for adulthood.
The older participants
said spankings were the
main source of discipline,
yet they did not feel their
parents were wrong
for using that source
of punishment. Chores
were extensive and they
were prepared to run
a household by middle-
school age.
The middle-aged
participants also said
their primary discipline
was spankings. They too
had extensive chores and
felt they were properly
trained to leave home by
adulthood. However, these
participants expressed
their wish there had been
more communication and
less fear factor from their
The younger
participants had fewer
spankings and more
alternative punishment.
They had fewer chores
and they felt less prepared
for adulthood. The one
thing all of the participants
had in common was that
they wanted an easier life
for their child. As time

Scott Shiver

progressed, each
person felt that
the discipline
and chores were
too excessive in
their childhood
and in turn was
easier on their
own child. Fear
of consequence
diminished along

the way.
High standards of
responsibility did as well.
Many of today's young
adults are not prepared to
take care of themselves at
adulthood or in the event of
their parent passing away.
Anxiety, ADHD, and other
psychiatric and behavioral
disorders are astronomical
in young people, even
through there are less
stressors on them than
ever before. Some may
have been misdiagnosed
years ago but there is a
significant increase that is
undeniable. Somehow, vital
building materials for child
development were being
omitted from the parenting
process through time.
When asked, "Are
there things you wished

the answers.
1."I wished I would have

2."I wish I could have

at the "Healthy Start
Baby Shower" held
in Port St. Joe June
21. Library calendars,
brochures on story time,
and our current summer
reading program were
available for the parents
and children attending
the event. Patron
registration forms for
a library card and a list
of books on childcare
and parenting for check

to attendees. A door
prize was donated that
included the book,
"The Complete and
Authoritative Guide to
Caring for Your Baby," a
book of nursery rhymes,
and assorted items for
the new baby and mom.
A "Books for Babies
Kit" was given away to
each participant. These
kits contain a safe book
(droolable and chewable)
for the newborn, baby's
first bib, library card
application, and a variety
of brochures with helpful
tips for the parents. Kits,
available in English and

was something they felt
they were deprived of that
motivated them to try to
give their child something
better. Last week, we
asked parents to expect
more from their teen than
the status quo. Sometimes
that means giving them
less and expecting more
from them. Why are you
cutting the grass while
your child is in the air
conditioning playing the
latest video game? If you
want to give them more,
then teach them more.
As for the second
response, we all wish
we could have gotten
everything right while
raising our children. It
was through trial and
error that Thomas Edison
invented the light bulb
and through each failed
attempt he kept what
worked, and replaced
what did not. They may
have taken on different
shapes and sizes but the
basic rules for making the
bulb remained the same.
Children do not come with
a manual so we parent
through trial and error and
through advice from wise,
veteran parents. Young
parents would fare better
by getting advice from
older parents who can
share what they learned
through parenting instead
of getting all their advice
from the internet alone.
The third response
is vital to your child's
development of self-worth.
When a person listens to
you, they are saying they
care about what concerns
you. So take the advice of
these wiser, older parents;
when your child needs to

talk, turn off the football
game, computer, or
whatever the distraction
and listen. When it comes
to parenting, you can not
take back the mistakes and
you only have one chance
to get it right.
There is a story in the
Bible about the children of
Israel being made slaves
in Egypt. Pharaoh made
the slaves gather their
own straw for making
brick, but expected them
to make the same amount
of brick as before when
it was supplied to them.
Ultimately, some of the
bricks were made without
straw. The bricks would
not hold together and the
buildings crumbled. In
his pride, Pharaoh was
harming himself and his
Family time, and
listening to your children's
needs and concerns,
teaches social skills;
without that you are
building bricks without
straw. When we omit
strong work ethics taught
through daily chores, we
are building bricks without
straw. Finally, when we
omit daily Bible reading,
prayer, and God from
the family circle, we are
building bricks without
straw. What happens to
the building when a stress
is put on it? It crumbles.
Look around us. What once
made this country so great
is crumbling down around
us. Just saying...

Minimum salary for county workers to rise

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
At their June 21 meeting, coun-
ty commissioners voted unani-
mously to increase the starting
salary for county workers by
$4,800, to a base salary of $25,000
The move came following a
recommendation by Alan Pierce,
director of financial services, that
emerged after Road Department
Superintendent Hubert Chipman
secured commissioners' permis-
sion June 7 to hire an employee to
fill a position vacated by a resig-
nation. The road department has
three vacancies but only one will
be filled.
Because of a hiring freeze,
Chipman was required to seek

approval from the commission
before advertising a job. They in-
structed him to advertise a start-
ing salary of $21,200.
On June 21, Pierce told com-
missioners a starting salary of
$21,200 is "so low in today's world
that anyone filling that position
will only stay there until he or she
can get a better job somewhere
else. Mr. Chipman and other de-
partments would be a revolving
door of new hires coming and
Pierce recommended raising
the minimum starting salary to
$25,000, effective July 1, to enable
Chipman to advertise the current
vacancy "at a salary level that I
believe would be competitive and
would help retain employees."
Pierce said it also would be

proper for other existing county
employees making under $25,000
to be raised to that same starting
salary, and the commissioners
Pierce said nine employees
making below $25,000 work direct-
ly for the county commission. The
cost of raising these salaries to at
least $25,000 for the remainder of
the fiscal year is $9,949, he said.
Property Appraiser Doris
Pendleton has two employees
below $25,000, and will raise their
pay to $25,000 using funds out of
her budget, Pierce said.
"Some county commission em-
ployees have not received a raise
or bonus for five years," said Com-
missioner Cheryl Sanders, adding
that the commissioners should
investigate the salary level of all

county employees and provide ap-
propriate increases.
Commissioner Bevin Putnal
expressed concern that some
long-term employees receive sal-
aries not much above the $25,000
"How can you justify paying
someone off the street what you
pay someone that's been there for
10 years?" he asked. "There's not
one of those employees out there
that can live without a second
Pierce said Monday he is look-
ing into whether the county has
the funds to increase salaries, and
will report back to the commis-
sion in July.
He said a freeze on county
commission hiring for almost four
years, and no cost of living ad-

justments, has had its effect. "We
have not been keeping up with in-
flation," Pierce said. "And that is
why we needed to adjust the start-
ing salary."
He said that the hiring ban
does not apply to constitutional
officers. "Once their budget is ap-
proved, they have the money to fill
a vacated position, but we would
encourage them to abide by coun-
ty policy," he said.
Pierce said that, effective July
1; the Florida legislature man-
dated all county employees pay 3
percent of their salary into their
pension fund, which decreases
their take-home pay.
"Money is tight," said Pierce.
"We have to be careful. We don't
want to hand out raises we'll have
to take back next year."

State rejects funding for Armory

By Lois Swoboda
Times Staff Writer
The state will not provide
funding to upgrade the Fort
Coombs Armory and Con-
vention Center this year.
The Historic Preserva-
tion Grant application was
rated 24 out of 48 applica-
tions but, in keeping with
Governor Scott's auster-
ity policy, no preservation
grants were awarded this
cycle. The grant would
have repaired the roof and
installed air conditioning.
Earlier this year, the
county accepted bids to
lease the Armory, and
two Indiana businessmen
proposed to renovate and
furnish it, at their own
expense, as a venue for
destination weddings. The
commission expressed
concern that control of the
building would be lost and
rejected the proposal.
The Amory, which the

county leases from the
state at a nominal rate,
continues to operate at a
deficit, based on a sum-
mary of profits and expen-
ditures for the 2009-10 fis-
cal year provided by Clerk
of Courts Marcia Johnson.
Cost of maintaining utili-
ties at the building was
$10,375, with an additional
$6,430 spent on insurance.
With only $5,700 in annual
revenue, the net loss for a
year of operation was over
Commissioners re-
cently changed the name
of the Armory to the Fort
Coombs Armory and Con-
vention Center, in order to
apply for renovation fund-
ing from the Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC).
At the June 7 meeting,
the commissioners ap-
proved sending a letter to
the TDC requesting that
"any and all excess funds"
be used to renovate the Ar-

mory and complete further
work on Lombardi Seafood
Park, including construc-
tion of a Maritime Heri-
tage Museum.
At that meeting, Com-
missioner Smokey Parrish
said these two projects
should be completed be-
fore the county undertakes
anything new.
Alan Pierce, the coun-
ty's director of adminis-
trative services, said a
state-funded architectural
firm estimated five years
ago that upgrading the
electrical and plumbing
systems, repairing the roof
and installing air condi-
tioning would cost roughly
$796,000. That would not in-
clude upgrading the kitch-
en with new appliances or
correcting the acoustics in
the main room.
At the June 21 meeting,
Pierce said the governor
also vetoed land acquisi-
tion funding that might

have allowed the county
to purchase land on St.
George Island and expand
the county boat ramp and
pavilion on Patton Drive in
Pierce said Florida
Boating Improvement
Program grant applica-
tions, for bathrooms at
the St. George Island Boat
Ramp, and a dock exten-
sion at the Abercombie
Boat Ramp, are still under
review by the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, with award
announcements to be
made by next week.
He said the county re-
quested $50 million for
Natural Resource Damage
Assessment funding from
BP The total submitted
statewide was over $2 bil-
lion, but the state cut the
list down to $1.5 billion.
The keystone of the
county's request was $30
million to rebuild oyster
bars damaged by overhar-
vesting due to economic
pressure from the oil spill.
The county also asked for
$15 million for beach re-
nourishment, and $5 mil-
lion to buy land and build
additional boat ramps.
All of the county projects
made the first cut and are
still under consideration,
Pierce said.
State and federal agen-
cies put in for projects
in Franklin County too,

Fort Coombs Armory and Convention Center.

including a request to
spend some $206 million
to purchase about 130,000
acres of land in Gulf and
Franklin counties between
Lake Wimico and St. Vin-
cent Sound. There are
other projects for lesser
amounts in the county,
including some for dune
restoration, and beach
restoration for Alligator
Point, Dog Island, eastern
St. George Island and Bald
Point State Park.
Commissioners were
not pleased with the pro-
posed land acquisition.
Commissioner Pinki

Jackel said BP funds
should be used to aid peo-
ple affected by the spill,
not purchase land
Pierce said Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP) officials will be
coming to the county to dis-
cuss and refine the county
projects, and would like to
start awarding money by
Oct. 2011.
Parrish said the com-
mission needs to weigh in
on the land purchase when
they meet with the DEP

the fish.
Many fish have an
organ called a swimblad-
der containing gas that
helps them swim. The gas
in the swimbladder can
over-expand when fish
are brought quickly to the
surface by hook and line
which can result in seri-
ous injury to the fish. If
released in this buoyant
condition, the fish may
float away and die from
exposure to the elements
or become an easy target
for predators.
Michaels said an in-
expensive hypodermic
needle with the plunger
removed can be used
to ventilate fish before
release instead of an ex-
pensive fish ventilator.

Ventilators are used to de-
flate the swimbladder.
She demonstrated the
correct way to measure
fish to determine legality.
On fish with a forked tail,
measure from the center
of the fork, not the tip of
the tail.
Use circle hooks when
fishing with live or dead
bait. Fish tend to swallow
these baits more often
than artificial lures. Circle
hooks seldom gut hook a
fish and usually hook fish
in the jaw, making it easier
to release a healthy fish.

last year in St. Joseph's
Bay -just 20 days longer.
That's what research-
ers with the Florida Marine
Research Institute have
determined after their an-
nual survey of Florida bay
scallop populations.
"St. Joseph's Bay should
be about like last year, may-
be up a little bit," said Steve
Geiger with the Florida
Marine Research Institute
in St. Petersburg.
Scallop harvest season
began last Saturday - one
week before the typical
July 1 start - and will end
Sept. 25, about 15 days later
than the usual Sept. 10 end
of harvest season.
"I will be out there the
first day," said Vern Barth
of Port St. Joe. "I can't wait.
I already have my kayak
ready, and I am ready to go.
"I have my 'honey holes,'
my two secret spots, and I
hope it will be like the last
two years. The last couple
of years, every time I've
gone out I've caught my
Surveys taken in recent
weeks show the St. Joseph's
Bay scallop population
holding fairly steady over
previous seasons, which
have seen an upsurge since
the population significantly
declined in 2004.
Each spring research-
ers survey the bay by set-
ting out 20 300-meter tran-
sect lines throughout the
bay and then counting the
number of scallops along
each transect line. The av-
erage of scallops found per

station this year was 155,
up slightly from the 138 av-
erage per transect line in
The highest station av-
erage was 1,000, down from
about 1,200 last year, and
Geiger said researchers
had five transect line that
yielded zero scallops; last
year there was one station
with no scallops.
"The average is up, but
that is not a tremendous
increase," Geiger said.
"My guess is there will be
really good patches in St.
Joseph's Bay and others
where there is nothing.
When people find those
good patches, they will be
very happy."
Geiger added that a
cooler than usual winter
likely helped the popula-
tion. Scallops, he said, love
the cold and cooler winters
allow scallops to thrive and
survive to become larger

son and to spawn in the
"That is very good for the

population," Geiger said.
"And there should be some
big guys this season."
Geiger said his data
shows no impact from the
Deepwater Horizon spill of
last year.
He said the Florida Ma-
rine Research Institute
also has 12 stations in St.
Joseph's Bay to count re-
cruits, or young scallops.
Such recruits look for a
place to set and grow, such
as sea grass beds, and the
traps work well in luring
The number and gen-
eral health of the recruits
this year was good, Geiger
"If anything was going
to be affected (by the oil
spill), it would be the lar-
vae," Geiger said. "The lar-
vae set well within St. Joe
Bay. There is no evidence
oil came inside the bay. I
don't think there were any
impacts in scallop harvest
As for the longer season,
proposed by the Florida

Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission and ap-
proved by the governor and
Cabinet, Geiger said there
are concerns, but the ex-
pansion of the harvest sea-
son is so unique there is no
data to compare.
"It is a concern, instead
of one week longer like last
year this year the season is
three weeks longer, 20 days
longer," Geiger said.
In an effort to gather
data on this year's harvest,
the FWCC is asking har-
vesters to go online to the
commission website and
fill out a 10-question survey
pertaining to where they
found scallops, what size
were the scallops, etc.
The online survey is at
Participants can also email
com to ask questions or
send more information.
The key for this year,
Geiger said, is to only har-
vest scallops of at least 1.5-
2.0 inches in diameter or

"I'm not worried about
when they collect, per se,
it is taking the tiny scal-
lops. That is harder on the
population," Geiger said. "I
would rather, honestly, that
people not harvest the one-
inch diameter scallop."
There is a daily limit of
two gallons of whole bay
scallops in the shell or one
pint of bay scallop meat per
In addition, no more
than 10 gallons of whole
bay scallops in the shell or
one-half gallon of bay scal-
lop meat may be possessed
aboard any vessel at any
time. Folks are allowed to
harvest bay scallops only
by hand or with a landing
or dip net.
Bay scallops may not be
harvested for commercial
Geiger also emphasized
that bag limits are daily
limits; it is illegal to take
a limit of scallops in the
morning and return later in
the day and collect another
limit of scallops.
Unless otherwise ex-
empt, a regular Florida
saltwater fishing license is

required when using a boat
to harvest scallops. If folks
wade from shore, a regular
Florida saltwater fishing
license or a free resident
shore-based license is
Divers and snorkelers
are required to display a
"divers-down" flag (red with
a white diagonal stripe)
while in the water. Boaters
must stay at least 100 feet
away from a divers-down
flag in a river, inlet or chan-
nel. In open waters, boat-
ers must stay 300 feet away
from a divers-down flag.
"The most important
thing is to be safe, keep
track of the kids and just
have a fun and safe time,"
Geiger said.
More information on bay
scallops, including man-
agement rules, dive-flag
regulations and boating
safety is available online at (click
on "Regulations" under

formation about scallop

Worm fishing is all but over until water temps drop again.
Most action has been on deep running crankbaits or
topwater early in the morning. Creek fishing has had good
reports of shellcraker and catfish.


Hot water temps are making inshore fishing a challenge even
to the most experienced. Topwater trout action is about the
best thing in the bay right now. Early in the morning or late in
the afternoon will prove to be the best time of day.


Red snapper action is still KING! Huge fish are in the 100-
150 ft range. Bring along plenty of big live bait because the
snapper are just about tired of cigar minnows. Keep your
baits of the bottom and even right under the boat.

All-Star fever grips the county

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
Franklin County has a bad
case of All-Star fever, and it's go-
ing to become an epidemic next
With three of the county's
baseball teams headed for state
tournaments, and all five softball
teams set to host the upcoming
Florida Dixie All-Stars state tour-
nament in Carrabelle, it looks to
be a memorable month for lovers
of the great American pastime.
For those who want to enjoy an
exciting week of top-notch softball
action, come to the Will S. Kend-
rick Sports Complex, 1601 Ken-
neth B. Cope Ave. in Carrabelle,
beginning Friday, July 8, as teams
battle for the state title for at least
four days.
A July 7 banquet at 6 p.m. at
the Carrabelle Christian Fam-
ily Life Center, 142 River Road,
will start the ball rolling for the
tournament's many players and
coaches. A Sunday morning ser-
vice at the church is also sched-
uled for tourney participants.
Because they are the hosts,
the county's five All-Star softball
squads all drew byes for their
respective district tournaments,
and so leapfrogged into the state
Representing the Angels di-
vision for ages 7-8, the All-Star
squad will be coached by Chad
Terhune, Eric Register and Kim
Johnson. The Darlings, ages 9-10,
are coached by Ward Kirvin and
Brock Johnson, and the Ponytails,
ages 11-12, are coached by Joseph
Farrell, Teresa Segree and Brian
The Belles, ages 13-15, are
coached by Jim McWhinnie, Gary
Martina and Linc Carroll, and the
Debs, ages 16-18, are coached by
Kevin Newell and Matt Kelley.
Gate prices are $5 for a day
pass and $15 for a four-day pass.
Parents and players from the
Dixie Youth League are helping
staff the tournament, with the
event receiving support from the
Tourist Development Council and
the county's parks and recreation
County Commissioner Cheryl
Sanders said at the June 21 coun-
ty commission meeting the tour-
ney will cost in the neighborhood
of $39,000, based on an estimated
overtime and other expenses.
Curt Blair, TDC administrator,
said the TDC is contributing about
$11,000 in bed tax revenue and
BP grant money to the tourna-
ment, which includes about $5,000
to provide gift bags to about 500

visitors on hand for the tourney.
Money from Visit Florida enables
the TDC to help fund the tourney
banquet, with other funds going
toward promotional advertising.
"This tournament will also put
some money back into the TDC in
bed tax revenue," Commissioner
Bevin Putnal said.
As much as excitement is
building for this hometown event,
players on three of the county's
All-Star baseball teams are get-
ting excited about going on the
road to compete in state tourna-

AA boys win in Wewa
The county's youngest boys
baseball All-Stars (other than the
T-ball teams, which do not take
part in postseason play) was the
lone squad to take home a dis-
trict title this past week in Wewa-
As described by enthusiastic
fan Jinny Trammell, the AA team,
for boys ages 7-8, is led by manag-
er Bob "Big League Ready" Eddy
and assistant coaches Justin
"Dazzle Man" Odom, Mark "Big
Papa" Daniels, Jennifer "J-LOE'
Daniels and Thomas "Tighten-
Up" Noffsinger.
On the diamond, the boys out-
played Callaway, Wewa and Port
St. Joe to take home the gold in the
tourney, which features a pitching
machine that hurls the rawhide at
40 mph. They will head to Brooks-
ville on July 9 to compete in the
state tourney.

"We have 12 kids who can hit
the ball," Eddy said. "I was espe-
cially proud of our hitting."
On June 17, the boys topped
Wewa 14-12 in six innings and
went on the next day to beat Port
St. Joe 18-15. On June 20, the boys
had a bye and the next day, lost for
the first time to Port St. Joe, 20-15.
But the boys came back July 22 to
win 9-7 over Port St. Joe and se-
cure the trophy.
"Our kids reallyworked hard on
fundamentals in batting and until
the last game, when we struck out
five times, only had one strikeout
per game," Eddy said. "We field
well, too. It's not that they let the
ball go between their legs; it's just
the ball gets hit more."
Eddy's regular season team,
the Apalachicola Eagles, spon-
sored by the Blue Parrot and Ace
Hardware, won the season title,
so he got to manage the All-Stars
and helped pick players from
throughout the county.
As described by Trammell,
the team features pitcher No. 8
Devin "Triple D - Dynamo" Dan-
iels; shortstop No. 9 Clint "The
Rocket, Bay-Bay" Rester; first
baseman No. 2 Lamarius "Monk
Monk, The Mayor" Martin; center
fielder No. 17 Caden "Knock 'em
in, Pooh Bear" Turrell; left fielder
No. 1 Joshua "Hammerin' Frog-
ger" Farmer; second baseman
No. 21 Joshua "Iron Man, Little
0" Odom; catcher No. 3 Kelson
"Slugger has a Mohawk" Smith;
third baseman No. 99 Alex "Goot
the Pearl" Joanos; pitcher No. 7

Bennett "Pretty Bunt aka Her-
mann" Rash; right fielder No. 22
Jordan "Six Months, Sweet Swing-
in" Millender; catcher No. 28 Colin
"The Amazing Buster" Amison;
and right fielder No. 10 Gage "The
Gray Fox, Buddy" Boone.
"Special thanks to our score-
keepers: Toni 'Tone Toned Long
Legs' Eddy, Tonya 'The Greek's
Pretty Wife' Joanos and April
'Gimme a Kiss, Hot Lips' Rester,"
Trammell said. "Thanks also to all
the fans, families, supporters and
sponsors who cheered them on
each game.
"Coach Bob brought the play-
ers to victory and spent endless
hot summer hours directing the
team for weeks to the No. 1 spot,
evermore drilling techniques to
earn this well-deserved glory,
along with the help of the assistant
coaches," she said. "Many parents
have used the phrase 'Coach Bob
said ...' at home to keep the play-
ers focused and disciplined. Way
to go, Seahawks."
Trammell urged members of
the community to contact any par-
ent or coach to donate to fundrais-
ing efforts for the state tourney

AAA, Majors finish
as runners-up
In the AAA division, for boys
ages 9-10, the team finished as
runners-up in Wewa. Coached
by Greg Sasnett, with assistance
from Michael Newell and T.J.
Pendleton, the team downed Cal-

laway 4-1 to open the tourney.
The squad then defeated Port
St. Joe 9-8, after the rivals to the
west scored their runs in the first
and second innings before pitcher
Christopher Newell shut them
down the rest of the way. Third
baseman Tonner Segree came
home on a passed ball to win the
game in the sixth inning.
The squad then dropped two
straight games to Port St. Joe, 7-3
and 12-9, to settle for second place
and earn a berth in the July 16
state tourney in Avon Park.
The team consists of Newell
at shortstop and pitcher; Segree
at third base; Jacob Pendleton
at first base and pitcher; Micah
McLeod at second and pitcher;
Ethan Riley at second and short-
stop; Christian Amison at catcher;
and outfielders Duncan Whaley,
Ethan Moses, Lucas Sasnett,
Matthew Gay, Tanner Amison and
Cale Barber.
Fan Ronda Newell encouraged
people to contact any player to
buy Krispy Kreme doughnuts to
help fund the state tourney trip. In
addition, the team hopes to raise
money this weekend with other
teams at the Blue Parrot Restau-
rant on St. George Island.
In the Majors division, for ages
11-12, coached by Lanny Rester,
with assistants Michael Gilbert
and Shelton Trail, the team lost
two heartbreakers to Wewa, 5-4 in
the opener and 7-6 in the champi-
onship, to settle for second place
and a July 22 trip to the state tour-
ney in East Lakeland.
"We had bases loaded, and we
just didn't hit the ball," Rester
said. "The two games they (Port
St. Joe) beat us, we didn't hit the
ball like we should have."
Pitcher Trenton Lee was the
workhorse for the team, winning
two complete games, including a
16-7 victory over Wewa in which
he struck out 11.
Lee also twirled a two-hitter
against Callaway, winning 2-0 after
shortstop Jack Harris smacked
a base hit, and second baseman
Corbin Rester was hit by a pitch.
Lee then knocked a base hit that
drove in Harris, and Rester stole
home on a passed ball.
Harris and left fielder Chris-
tian Page both had two-run hom-
ers in the tourney. Also contribut-
ing mightily were first baseman
Jan Lowe, third baseman Tyler
Pendleton, left fielder Tyler Farm-
er, right fielder Marshall Sweet,
second baseman and center
fielder Connor Rash, right field-
er Tyler Millender, catcher Nick
Joanos and right fielder James

Air Force officer wins island's Sizzler

By David Adlerstein
Times City Editor
A former Rutherford High
School cross country champion,
recently graduated from the U.S.
Air Force Academy, made it look
easy Saturday as he breezed to
victory in the 14th annual St.
George Island 5K Sizzler.
Nearly a minute ahead of
his closest competitor, 2nd Lt.
Brandon Hough topped the field
of 218 runners with a time of
17:06. Finishing in second was
25-year-old Jack Redwing, who
ran a 17:51. Best among local
runners was Franklin County
High School track standout El-
ton Olvera, 18, who finished 14th,
at 20:16.
Unlike previous years, when
a female runner or two would
finish in the top 20, females this
year generally posted mid-range
times, with the top finisher, 22-
year-old Nick Reichenbach, fin-
ishing 36th with a 22:44.
Hough said he felt challenged
the entire way, but onlookers

saw a race where he dominated
from start to finish. "I felt like
they were right on my (tail) the
whole way," he said.
Hough said the heat more
than made up for the gains he
accrued running at a lower alti-
tude than in Colorado Springs,
Colo., where he ran Division I
cross country in his senior year
at the Air Force Academy.
"It's lost in the heat," he said.
"It's a tradeoff."
The son of mom and stepfa-
ther Sandy and Terry Tunn, of
Callaway, the 2007 Rutherford
grad was Bay County cross
country champ and now finds
himself running about 65 miles a
week in training. Now headed to
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
for an assignment with the 88th
Contracting Squadron, Hough
will be in San Antonio for techni-
cal school in late August through
October, where he plans to run
cross country but not attached
to any team.
"I'm just trying to get used to
it being really hot," he said,

reported seeing two waterspouts
over the bay at 8:08 p.m.
Undersheriff Joel Norred said
the sheriff's office stepped up pa-
trols on the island Monday night
after the outage. There is no cur-
few, but rental companies were
asked T'uesday to provide the sher-
iff's office with guest lists for night
patrols. Residents were asked to
curtail nighttime activities.
Lt. John Solomon said a wire-
less alert was sent to island resi-
dents asking them to turn off air

conditioners at the fuse box so the
emergency generators deployed
by Progress are not overloaded
when they are kicked on. He said
air conditioners can be turned on
once the generators are running.
The outage came at an unfortu-
nate time, since this Fourth of July
week is one of the season's busiest,
with occupancy at 100 percent in
island rental properties.
Some island businesses, includ-
ing Resort Vacation Properties
and Collins Vacation Rentals, have

generators that allowed them to
operate without interruption.
Helen Spohrer, speaking for the
Tourist Development Council's
marketing office, said the outage
"should have a minimal effect on
Jamie Crum, spokesman for
Fickling Vacation Rentals, said,
"Everybody's been good so far.
Only a few have complained."
About 40 people attended a
meeting at the Buccaneer Inn
Tuesday morning where Progress

Energy representatives met with
county law enforcement, County
Commissioner Pinki Jackel, emer-
gency management officials and
businesses. Progress officials re-
minded residents that as the gen-
erators come online, there will be
intermittent periods of power dur-
ing the day.
Progress said the eight genera-
tors dispatched to the island would
allow full service, and that custom-
ers need not take special measures
to conserve power.

Progress said the damaged
poles will be replaced in three to
five days, provided there is no more
bad weather, by 36-inch temporary
concrete poles, stronger than the
ones destroyed in the storm.
This is not the first time in re-
cent history the lines have gone
down. It happened in 2006 when
a tornado hit the lines, and again
in 2008, when a waterspout hit.
Storms then delayed for several
days the restoration of electricity
through Progress generators.

SCHOOL from page Al

Discussion on the cal-
endar issue began with two
school board members, Te-
resa Ann Martin and Carl
Whaley, objecting that stu-
dents would be in school on
Veterans Day, Friday, Nov.
Martin said she liked the
original 180-day calendar,
but continued to hear con-
cerns that students would
again be in school for Veter-
ans Day, even though spe-
cial events were planned for
that day.
"If we were saving a
whole lot, sure, I'd want to
go with 156 days," she said.
"I don't see we're changing
a whole lot by changing the
Whaley said having stu-
dents in school on Veterans
Day would be "a deal-break-
er for me. Many people, in-
cluding my father, who is a
veteran, were very upset.
It is a nationally recognized
holiday, and he was fit to be
Whaley said he'd like to
see a veterans education
program earlier in the week,
with Nov. 11 off to enable
students to spend time with
their families.
Franklin County School
teacher Elinor Mount-Sim-
mons, a member of the
school's calendar commit-
tee, said committee mem-
bers would have to review
any changes to the calendar,
which might prove difficult

given that school was out for
the summer.
Hinton tried unsuccess-
fully to have the board ap-
prove the shorter calendar
in concept and send it back
to the committee to adjust
the Veterans Day schedule.
"The state legislature
has come to agreement that
it is a decision (for school
districts)," he said. "I think
the kids become educated
more on Veterans Day in
school than given a holiday
where they go fishing. I don't
have a problem not having
Veterans Day off, as long as
it's recognized.
"I noticed (at gradua-
tion) a large amount of peo-
ple did not know the proper
etiquette (with the Pledge of
Allegiance)," he said. "What
we really need is to have
education in the school that
pertains to any type of patri-
otic activities."
Facing a state deadline
for school calendars that
had already passed, the
board moved ahead with
deciding on the schedule for
the upcoming school year.

Longer days,
longer summer
Hinton said he favored
the shorter calendar and
that it would improve aca-
"Having the exams be-
fore Christmas is a very pos-
itive step, and terminating

the school shortly after the

Franklin County High
School teacherDenise Roux,
representing the teach-
ers union, said a survey of
union membership about
various concerns indicated
85 percent of respondents
"strongly or somewhat ap-
proved" of shortening the
school calendar.
"The survey was sent
to instructional and non-
instructional employees
of both unions," she said.
"More responded from the
teachers, but the survey
was available to all."
Karen Ward, a Franklin
County elementary school
teacher who has decided
to return next year to her
former teaching post at the
ABC School, voiced strong
opposition to the shorter
"I don't think we'll see the
effect this school year; it will
be the following year," she
said. "You're going to have
lapses, and you're going to
see regression.
"I'm not here for myself.
I'm here as a teacher for our
students," she said. "Our
students come first, not our
teachers and not our pay. If
there's somewhere else we
can cut, I think that needs to
be considered.
"I don't see the extra
time in the day," Ward said,
acknowledging the pres-

sures of state testing can
cut into instructional time.
"But when FCATs were
over, I hit the other subject
harder. There won't be an
'after FCAT' this year to go
back and hit that other sub-
ject harder.
"I can see the test scores
falling when you have to go
back (after a longer sum-
mer)," she said. "They're out
of habit. They're not reading,
they're not studying over
the summer. There's a lot of
students who don't come to
that summer program."
Ward made clear she
was not speaking as a repre-
sentative of the ABC School,
which promised to abide the
school district's calendar
"I'm here as a parent,"
she said. "My own child
attends Franklin County
School, and I don't want
to see his school year cut.
That's my own personal
feeling and opinion.
"I'm looking out for the
welfare of all them, not one
school or another," Ward
said. "He needs to be in
school. He needs to be ready
for college. I don't think he
will be if you give him five
extra weeks of summer.
You're going to take away
from his education.
"What if it's just disas-
trous? What if it causes our
whole education in Franklin
County to fail?" she said.
"I'm begging you to leave it

at 180 days."
A new resident of Apala-
chicola, John Comer, came
prepared with statistics
regarding academic perfor-
mance in Franklin County
to argue against a longer
school day. A former edu-
cator from Marin County,
Calif., he said "the problem
with extending your student
hours per day is that student
achievement will drop be-
cause, in fact, students have
a limited attention span like
everybody else."
Comer outlined data that
showed the district's point
total last year enabled it
to just meet the minimum
number of points to earn
a B rating. FCAT scores
were recently released by
the Florida Department of
Education, which plans to
release school grades for
2010-11 on June 30.
"If student achievement
drops during the year, you
will lose your B rating," he
said. "The world I come
from is highly competitive.
In order to survive, you have
to be a power reader and
know serious arithmetic
skills. You have to be able to
know the basics of science.
These are subjects in which
students today in school
aren't doing very well."
Comer urged the board
to consider reducing over-
head "by eliminating those
areas of your overhead that
do not directly contribute

to student achievement."
Pressed to provide spe-
cific examples, he said a
20 percent reduction could
be made in administrative
"There's no reason in
the world Franklin County
schools can't have an A
rating. You're within strik-
ing distance," he said. "You
have to set your goals and
say this is what our schools
are going to accomplish,
and it can be done. It can be

Eastpoint Water and Sewer District
2010 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
We're pleased 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 water. Our water source is ground water from two wells. The
wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatments required are aeration and chlorination for disinfection purposes.
In 2009 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information
about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There is one potential source of contamination identified for this system with a moderate
susceptibility level. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at or they can
be obtained from Eastpoint Water and Sewer District at 670-8177.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Charlie Painter at 850-670-8177. We encourage our valued customers to be informed
about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 4:00 p.m.
Eastpoint Water and Sewer District 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 December 31, 2010. Data obtained before January 1, 2010, and
presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the
best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for
a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a 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 of trihalomethanes (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 residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a
disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do
not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1): one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1): one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in water.

The Eastpoint Water and Sewer District did not have lead levels above State required limits. However, if elevated levels were present, it could cause serious health
problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and
home plumbing. Eastpoint Water and Sewer District is responsible for providing 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 the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to
2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you 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 or at
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 resulting from 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 stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater
discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(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 must provide the same protection for public
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not
necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental
Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer
undergoing chemotherapy, 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 at the Eastpoint Water and Sewer District would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of

commander of the wing, said
during a press conference
June 23 at the Aero Club.
"This always hits an Air
Force family hard," Brewer
said. "Our first condolences go
out to the family, and obviously,
whatever we can do in order to
help the family ... that's where
our thoughts and prayers are."
The plane was in the air do-
ing training exercises for about
30 minutes before the crash.
Brewer said it isn't uncommon
for pilots to practice such ma-
neuvers in the early morning.
"In essence, it's flying
around ... the general runway
area and setting up to practice
takeoffs and landings or ap-
proaches to takeoffs and land-
ings," he said of the training
exercises the pilot was doing
before the crash.
Who was in control of the
plane at the time of the crash is
under investigation, said Andy
Bourland, director of Eglin's
public affairs division.
Bourland confirmed Miles
was acting as training pilot for
Lewis, employed with U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service, at the time
of the crash. Miles was a retired
Air Force colonel who was last
stationed at Hurlburt Field.
"Dave Miles was a very ex-
perienced pilot with thousands
of hours in the cockpit," said his
son-in-law Richard Johnson.
"Flying was his passion. His
family is devastated by the loss
of such a good and holy man."
The four-passenger plane
was owned by Eglin Air Force

Base and rented to the civilian
pilot through the base's Aero
Club. Use of the club's planes is
open to the general public, pro-
vided the pilot has the proper
credentials. Both Miles and
Lewis were members of Eglin's
Aero Club.
The club has just one Beech-
craft C24R Sierra, base officials
confirmed, and it was deemed
airworthy in 1980.
Passengers on the earliest
flights at Northwest Florida
Regional Airport experienced
about a 15-minute delay Thurs-
day because of the crash, said
Bill Potter, operations manager
for the airport.
The crash will be investigat-
ed by a safety board appointed
by the Air Force that will in-
clude officials from the Federal
Aviation Administration and
the National Transportation
Safety Board, Brewer said.

Lewis coordinated
red wolf program
Lewis, who studied biology
at the University of Maryland
and Texas A&M University, co-
authored the protocol for rear-
ing wolves in island refuges. He
served as coordinator of the St.
Vincent Island National Wildlife
Refuge's red wolf breeding pro-
gram from its inception in 1990
until he left the refuge in 2008.
Lewis fought for the wolves
and the program on many
When budget cuts led to the
loss of his position as wildlife

biologist for the refuge, he re-
invented himself as a wildlife
pilot. He left St. Vincent for a
position as a wildlife pilot intern
for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service at the Patuxent Wild-
life Research Center in Laurel,
Over the past three years,
he obtained his pilot's license
and began work as a migratory
bird pilot. He was seeking to
qualify in a Beechcraft C24R Si-
erra when Thursday's accident
"He was a stickler for rules
and regulations, but he also
just had a passionate love for
the out-of-doors," said Dan
Garlick, a friend and fellow pi-
lot. "I backpacked extensively
with him in the Appalachians,
and we always had a really good
time. I think later that passion
for the outdoors became one of
the things that led him into fly-
Family friend Bruce Hall, of
Apalachicola, said, "He loved
what he was doing. I spoke to
him very recently, and he was
so happy and full of plans."

Rineral services will be held
at Pasadena United Methodist
Church, 61 Ritchie Highway,
Pasadena, Md., at 11 a.m. Tues-
day, July 5. The Thom Lewis
Rind to help with burial and fu-
neral expenses has been set up
at Superior Bank, PO. Box 699,
Apalachicola, FL 32329.
Condolences may be sent

to JoAnne Lewis, PO. Box 712,
Apalachicola, FL 32329.
Thom Lewis was instrumen-
tal in founding the Supporters
of St. Vincent volunteer group.
He and JoAnne were strong
supporters of the Florida Wild
Mammal Association wildlife
rescue facility and fostered in-
jured and orphaned wildlife in
their home.
JoAnne has asked that

tions be made to the Florida

Perhaps Lewis' greatest leg-
acy is more than 20 wolf cubs
returned to the wild from the
pack he loved and protected.
The red wolf made history
as the first U.S. species to be
successfully reintroduced after
extinction in the wild, and Lew-
is' work on St. Vincent Island
was pivotal to this victory.
"It's not without a heavy
heart that I leave," Lewis told
St. Vincent volunteers and
staff at his farewell luncheon in
2008. "I've grown to love the ref-
uge and the volunteers. On my
last day of work, I tracked the
wolves on the island, and I had
at least five of them grouped
together. I thought what a fit-
ting way this was to spend my
last day. I howled to them, and
four of the five howled back. So
