During the rst four months of 2014, the county’s receipts of the 2 percent bed tax were about 2.8 percent behind that of the rst four months of 2013. For the en tire seven-month period of the s cal year, which began in October 2013, revenues were a statistically insignicant $300, or 0.08 percent, below that of one year ago. The current pace was consid erably slower than the last three months of 2013, when the scal year opened its rst quarter by running nearly 6 percent ahead of the prior year. While these seven fall and win ter months are typically among the slowest for tourism, they do suggest that the county will have to post a banner summer season in order to hit the $1 million mark in scal year receipts for the rst time since the 2 percent bed tax began in 2005. The county opened the s cal year in October at nearly 7.7 percent ahead of the year prior, receiving nearly $58,000 to best its best October on record. But bed tax receipts took a tumble in November, falling by nearly 14 percent for the month, back to 2011 levels. In December, traditionally the slowest month of the year, re ceipts posted a sharp rebound, ris ing from $21,500 to nearly $30,000, HOW T hH E YEAR IS GOING 2012-13 2013-14 DI ffFF E rR E nN CE C CHA nN GE OO ctober ‘13 $53,543 $57,652 $4,109 8.1% NN ovember $40,334 $34,741 $5,593 -13.8% December $21,510 $29,748 $8,238 38.2% January ‘14 $33,657 $34,707 $1,050 3.12% February $49,365 $52,883 -$3,517 -7.14% March $80,880 $78,180 -$2,700 -3.34% AA pril $90,243 $81,115 -$9,128 -10.12% By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes For the third year in a row, and the fth time in the last six years, the Apalachicola Bay Charter School has earned a school grade of A, rmly establishing itself as one of the top performing schools in the region. The ABC School was among 110 combination kindergarten through eighth grade schools in the state to earn the top grade, a 4 percent increase over last year. In all, 42 percent of these K-8 schools earned an A. When school grades were an nounced Friday by the Florida Department of Education, the kindergarten through 12th grade Franklin County School received only a grade of “pending.” This is because the state waits until the fall, when all possible additional points can be calculated, to an nounce the grades for such K-12 schools. Based on a preliminary grade of C issued Friday for the entire district, it appears likely that the consolidated school will earn at least a grade of C, and eliminate the stigma of having been a D school in 2012-13. The ABC School’s grade was earned because it tallied 614 Another A for ABC By RO bB JOH nsNS O nN Special to The Times EdED ITO rR ’S n N OTE: The following story originally appeared in the July 13 edition of the Pensacola News Journal. New questions about the mili tary’s proposal to use the Black water River and Tate’s Hell state forests for maneuvers are com ing from three Florida agencies and a Pensacola lawyer who spe cializes in environmental law. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has asked for specics from Air Force planners on a range of issues from “collection and removal of waste and unexploded expend ables and pyrotechnic devices” to aircraft noise that is projected to be above the level “made by nightclub.” Moreover, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission has contradicted a sec tion in the Air Force’s draft of its Environmental Impact State ment that is supposed to estab lish guidelines under which the forest can be used. In a letter to the Air Force dated June 12, the agency said the impact report “states that there are no eagle nests” in ei ther Blackwater or in Tate’s Hell State Forest, which also is a pro posed site for maneuvers. “In actuality, there are docu mented eagle nests in both for ests that are monitored by the FWC; the area biologists can provide these locations,” the let ter said.

My agreement with alligators and water moccasins is if they’ll leave me alone I’ll leave them alone. What I really like are my birds. I had a couple (married) aboard “Lily” from the ornithology lab at Cornell University, one of the best in the world, who identied 38 species of birds in our estuarine reserve. I didn’t see nearly that many as I was tryin’ to watch where I was goin’ and not run into a cypress tree or another boat, although I hardly ever do see another boat, but if I do I identify the occupants to my party as “humans,” an endangered species. Well, the couple had an app (that stands for application for folks my age) on their iPhone with all the information about birds and their calls. It’s called Sibley and costs about $20, so I bought it as I can charge it off as a business expense. Well, I have always loved birds and hearing their calls and have spent many hours in the woods listening to them. The problem is the little birds don’t y over to you and say, “Hey, that was me over there in the bush you were listening to.” So I’m sittin’ around the house playing with my new app and matchin’ the calls up with my birds ‘til Lane came and made me quit ‘cause we have two little kitty cats and we were about to have to commit them to the funny farm. They were runnin’ all over the house tryin’ to nd the birds. Anyway, we have lots of ospreys around, especially up in the St. Mark’s River near the train trestle. (Now, see, there’s the Little St. Mark’s and the St. Mark’s River here, and another St. Mark’s River at St. Mark’s, so I‘m not sure what St. Mark did when he came through but evidently folks liked him a lot). So they mate for life and come back to the same nest every year and rebuild it together, so maybe that’s one reason they mate for life ‘cause a lot of men don’t help with the housework. These ospreys arrived the third week of February to begin their preparations for the mating season. Now, here’s the sad thing. There are two nests up there, one particularly large one in the very top of a dead cypress tree. (There’s a bunch of dead cypress tress around and according to my friend, Wood Duck, it’s from years of salt intrusion from lack of freshwater coming down the river, so you see, it’s not just our oysters that are in trouble). Well, over the course of the year, storms demolished the nest so only a remnant remained. Every time I went by the nest, the pair of ospreys would be sittin’ on a limb just staring at where their former home was, pretty sad. This went on for all of the spring and well into the summer, when all of the sudden about a month ago they started to rebuild and when it was nished I would see them again sitting on their nest. Then, lo and behold you won’t believe this. My friend, Mark Creamer, and his son Grayson have a camp right below the nest. So I ran into Mark and he told me that lightning had struck the tree during one of our erce electrical storms. I thought, those are the unluckiest birds I have ever seen and I was convinced they were history, but the next trip I went by and they were there safe and sound in their new home. Now it even looks like they are building another on above so they will have two stories. I’ll keep y’all posted. By the way, I had a fella’ on “Lily” one day ask me, says, “Capt. Gill, do you know why ospreys mate for life and people don’t?” And I said, “No, why not?” He said, “Because every morning when she wakes she tells him, ’Why don’t you go shin’ today?’” Your friend, Capt. Gill Carrabelle to curtail comp time, overtime By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes m At the July 10 Carrabelle meeting, commissioners voted unanimously to place stricter limits on overtime and comp (compensatory) time hours. Under the new wording, overtime will be limited to essential and emergency operations. “Employees may be required to work overtime, or work on days off, in order to meet special situations, emergencies, or demands,” it reads. “Employees of the City of Carrabelle are expected to work the extra hours when required. Employ ees who refuse to work overtime without approved exemptions will be subject to disciplinary action.” Department heads are charged with documenting and justifying overtime worked in a written statement to the city nance ofcer. Employees will receive double pay for work on city holidays Holidays recognized by the city are New Years Day’, Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, President’s Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Inde pendence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and the following Fri day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and a half-day for New Years Eve. “Compensatory leave may be granted to a salary employee if the city adminis trator determines the leave will not be unduly disruptive to the department. Any time accrued from Jan. 1 to June 30 must be used by June 30 and time accrued from June 1 to Dec. 31 must be used by Decem ber 31.” Under the new rules, employees may choose to sell up to 40 hours of accrued leave back to the city and employees who have worked for the city for 10 years or more may sell back 80 hours. Also proposed with the new work rules was the addition of a personal holiday, but commissioners voted not to add this addi tional holiday. City Administrator Courtney Millender said overtime hours have dramatically decreased since the topic of overtime and comp time came under scrutiny by commissioners.

On Sunday, Deputy Ron ald Jones of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Ofce was dispatched to 108 West US 98 after Pat Hale, wife of Post Adjutant Larry Hale, dis covered the air conditioners were missing. Larry Hale said the thieves smashed the termi nal breaker boxes to cut the current to the equipment be fore cutting the power lines and loading the units into a truck. He estimated the cost of repairing the breaker boxes and replacing the two sixton external compressors would be $5,500, so, if ap prehended, thieves would be charged with grand theft. He is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the thieves. Chief Craig Kincaid of the Carrabelle Police Depart ment said thefts of this type are not uncommon. He said units are frequently looted from vacant houses and businesses. Thieves remove the outer cover and sell the internal core for scrap value of about $60. Kincaid said the covers are often dumped in the woods. He said that although nearby recycling businesses ask for identication, and photograph or ngerprint persons selling suspicious materials, “scrap looks like scrap.” Police have been unable to nd a witness to the theft, which occurred sometime between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning. “I’m glad they didn’t get electrocuted,” said Larry Hale. “They’d probably sue us.” Post Commander Al Mi rabella said there would be a meeting of Post 106 at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 24. Mem bers are invited to bring a covered dish. Selection of new ofcers and replace ment of the air conditioners will be discussed. Special to The Times A 54-year-old Eastpoint man died of an apparent drowning Saturday morning after he dove off the boat landing at Cash’s Creek. The body of Michael Holland was discovered beneath the water by Lt. Timmy Register after he searched the area wearing a mask, snorkel and ns. Friends of Holland had been unable to locate him after he and a friend, Tina Kilgore, had jumped off the dock. Responding to a 911 call, Sgt. Robert Shiver of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Ofce arrived at the scene about 11:15 a.m. and spoke with Doug Joyner and Bruce Rotella. The two men said they had caught a ride to Cash’s Creek with Earl Frank Boone and Kilgore. Joyner and Rotella told Shiver they were all hanging out at the end of the dock when Holland “grabbed Tina around the waist and jumped off the end of the dock with her into the water.” Kilgore surfaced and swam to shore, they said, but Holland did not come up. Joyner and Rotella told Shiver they both, as well as Holland, had been drinking. Joyner said he had jumped into the water to search for Holland, but could not locate him. The dive crew arrived at the scene, together with Sheriff Mike Mock, Capt. Brad Segree. Capt. Ches ter Creamer and FWC Ofcer Terry Martin. Register was assisted by Deputy Casey Harrell in pulling Hol land’s body from the water and into a body bag. The body was transported to the medical examiner’s ofce in Tallahassee and FWC assumed the investigation of the drowning. Shiver, together with Deputy Jim Ward, then drove to the Apalachicola residence of Holland’s parents, Linda Holland and Junior Holland, to notify them of their son’s death. The following report is provided by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Ofce. Arrests listed were made by ofcers from the Apalachicola Police Department, Carrabelle Police Department, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Ofce.

Special to the Times A daily low dose of aspi rin can offer important pro tection against cardiovascu lar disease, but University of Florida researchers say that the people who could receive the most benet from the medication may not be taking it. A UF study found only 40 percent of people who were at high risk of cardiovas cular disease said they re ceived a doctor recommen dation for aspirin therapy, while one-quarter of people at low risk reported their doctors told them to take the drug. The results appeared Monday in the Journal of the American Heart Association. The U.S. Preventive Ser vices Task Force, a panel of national experts in preven tion and evidence-based medicine, recommends as pirin use to prevent heart attack and stroke in men age 45 to 79 and women age 55 to 79 when the ben et outweighs the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, a possible side effect of regu lar aspirin use. “Cardiovascular disease is a signicant problem in the United States and the appropriate use of preven tion strategies is particu larly important,” said Arch G. Mainous III, Ph.D., the study’s lead investiga tor and chairman of the department of health servic es research, management and policy at UF’s College of Public Health and Health Professions. “Aspirin has been advocated as a pre vention strategy but only for certain patients. There are health risks associated with the treatment. It is impor tant that doctors are direct ing the right patients to get aspirin for cardiovascular disease prevention.” Other studies have ex amined whether people at risk of heart attack or stroke were taking aspirin, but the UF study is the rst to ex plore whether a person had received a doctor’s recom mendation for aspirin. For the study, UF re searchers analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2011-12, a large, nationally representative survey that combines sur vey questions with labora tory testing. About 3,500 participants older than age 40 were asked if their doc tor had recommended they take low-dose aspirin for the prevention of cardio vascular disease, stroke or cancer. If they had received the recommendation, par ticipants were also asked if they were following their doctor’s advice. The UF team com pared individuals’ survey responses to their Fram ingham Risk Score, a risk assessment tool for deter mining a person’s 10-year risk of having a heart at tack. The tool calculates a score based on a person’s age, gender, total and HDL cholesterol, smoking status and blood pressure. Re searchers classied people who had a 10-year risk score of more than 10 percent as high risk, while patients with less than a 10 percent risk were classied as low risk. “The results indicated that more than half of the patients who should have been recommended to take aspirin did not report being told by their health care pro vider to take aspirin,” said Mainous, the Florida Blue endowed chair of health administration. “Further, a substantial proportion of those not at increased risk for cardiovascular disease were recommended to take aspirin. “The vast majority of patients who reported be ing told to take aspirin were complying with their doc tor’s advice. The issue that was concerning to us wasn’t adherence to treatment, but whether the right patients were being given advice on aspirin treatment appropri ate for them.” Future research should evaluate whether making Framingham Risk Score computations available through electronic medi cal records would aid doc tors in making accurate decisions about who should take low-dose aspirin, Mainous said.

M aA INOUS IIIIII PH.D Boomers, Bryson, credit cards and Gloria Gaynor “It took all the strength I had not to fall apart …” from “I Will Survive,” recorded by Gloria Gaynor A young acquaintance, just graduated from college, recently chided me about what a complete nancial failure my generation is compared to others. Some of that criticism is probably warranted. Many of us fell in love with credit cards and created a new genre of individual debt. When Baby Boomers were young adults, our standard of living and level of consumption were incredibly high. As author Bill Bryson says in “Lost Continent,” “That is the great, seductive thing about America — the people always get what they want, right now, whether it is good for them or not. There is something deeply worrying, and awesomely irresponsible, about this endless selfgratication … ” During our watch American economic power receded for the rst time in a century. And soon, China will replace the U.S. as the world’s largest economy. Well, that’s one perspective. I tend to look at Baby Boomers as the generation who were asked to pay when the bill nally came due. Yes, we overspent our credit cards. But we also subsequently cut them up and downsized our consumption habits, so much so that government was forced to step in and replace declining levels of consumer spending with creative economic stimuli. In the 1960s, cities like Detroit swelled with economic prowess. But as health care costs escalated, no industry possibly could provide the ongoing benets promised to union members. So cutbacks began, jobs were eliminated, and our generation was left holding the bag. We suffered the OPEC oil crisis and lived our entire adult economic lives under the shadow of dependence on foreign oil. Somehow we survived, although not without several painful recessions along the way. Folks forget how bad the U.S. economy was when many of us began job hunting in the 1970s. The Internet has eliminated many brick-and-mortar enterprises. And outsourcing and automation have also decimated the job market. But it’s inappropriate to blame global economic competition and new technological innovations on a particular generation. The job losses created by these changes are simply by-products of progress. Because of difcult economic circumstances, we also are the rst generation that has been forced to sometimes support three generations: Ourselves, our parents and our children, and to do so during a terrible job market. And as a result, Boomers also are the rst generation in American history to live less well than did their parents. Boomers also have battled wage stagnation for longer than any period of time since the Great Depression. Perhaps as a result, the Baby Boomer generation leads all others in the number of startup enterprises currently entering the market place. We’re nothing if not tenacious. Margaret R.

M aA R gaGA RET RR M c DOWELL Arbor Outlook Thanks for caring for a great old town I just returned from Apalachicola visiting my daughter Deborah Horn in her house celebrating her July 3 birthday and my July 4 birthday. We fell in love with this lovely town on many summer holidays at St. George Island. We would drive up to drive around and look for homes that were on sale, have a delightful lunch there, visit several shops and admire the lovely old trees and the historical cemetery. The oyster boats are great and eating a dozen fresh ones from there is a terric treat. Throughout the years, we decided Apalachicola was the place for us. Deborah purchased a home there and is in the process of renovating it now. We were so surprised that nally there was a celebration on her birthday, July 3! It is usually held on my day and this was such a joy. Your celebration was wonderful, beautifully planned and orchestrated. We enjoyed all of it, the parade, the auctions, the food, the band and the nale, the elaborate reworks! You have kept the lovely old buildings restored beautifully. Downtown has really grown since last year. The people were so very friendly. We immediately felt we had found a second home. Walking about the lovely neighborhood in early dusk was a real treat. Quiet streets, very little trafc, beautiful old homes lovingly cared for, it seemed like a real movie town… a perfect place for a great  Southern movie. I congratulate the folks that are responsible for planning and caring for this great old town. I hope I can come back soon to visit. Sincerely, Barbara B. Rigsby Cullman, Ala. LETTER TO THE E dD ITOR NIH can help older adults quit smoking Special to the Times The National Institutes of Health has released a new Web resource to help old er adults stop smoking. Quitting Smoking for Older Adults, a new topic from NIH SeniorHealth, offers videos, worksheets, interactive features, strategies, quizzes, and more for older smokers who want to or are thinking of quitting. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable, premature death and illness in the United States, respon sible for almost half a million deaths each year. In addition to lung and other cancers, smoking can cause heart dis ease, stroke and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, commonly known as COPD. The recent Surgeon General’s report, The Health Consequences of Smoking — 50 Years of Progress, pro vides new data that links smoking to bone disease, cataract, diabetes, macular de generation and erectile dysfunction. Research shows that people who quit smoking, regardless of their age, are less likely than those who continue to smoke to die from smoking-related illness. Al though the rates of smoking have de clined in recent years for all age groups, nearly 10 percent of adults older than 65 — almost four million older Americans continue to smoke. “Most older adults know that smok ing is harmful, and many have tried un successfully to quit, often a number of times. But stopping smoking is a difcult goal that still eludes many older smok ers,” said Erik Augustson, program di rector of the Tobacco Control Research Branch at the National Cancer Institute, which developed the topic for NIHSe niorHealth. “This new topic, which of fers a mix of tips and tools geared to the needs and experiences of older smokers, is an important, easy-to-use resource that can benet those trying to quit for the rst time as well as those who have tried before.” NCI, which based the topic on its re source, Clear Horizons: A Quit Smoking Guide for People 50 and Older, has also included information about the chal lenges and advantages of quitting when you’re older, smoking’s effect on medi cations, and how to handle withdrawal, cravings and more. Quitting Smoking for Older Adults, which can be found at nihseniorhealth. gov/quittingsmoking, joins an impres sive roster of research-based health top ics geared toward older adults, including exercise and physical activity, long-term care, safe use of medicines, and man agement of diseases such as stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. NIHSeniorHealth, a joint effort of the National Institute on Aging and the Na tional Library of Medicine, components of NIH, is designed to be senior friendly and tailored to the cognitive and visual needs of older adults. The short, easyto-read segments of information, large print, opened captioned videos, and sim ple navigation make the information on the site easy for older adults to nd, see and understand. CORRECTION The front page article on the proposed increase to the county’s 2 percent bed tax, “County to consider bed tax hike,” in the July 10 Times said the motion by county commissioners to place the tax hike on the November ballot passed 4-1. The vote was in fact 3-2, with Commissioners Noah Lockley and Smokey Parrish both opposed.

This week’s Chasing Shadows question concerns a button found on the grounds of the Franklin County Courthouse by Frankie Crosby. While digging on the courthouse lawn, he discovered a small brass button with a welded metal loop on the back. The design is an anchor surmounted by a crown with crossed cannons. The button is edged by a double loop of rope. Can anyone tell us what kind of a button this is and how old it is? If you know, please contact the Times at 653-8868 or contact Lois Swoboda at – By LOIS SWOBODA The Times | A5 Thursday, July 17, 2014 By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes On Friday, The Times got a surprise telephone call from Anelle Blanchette, of Lanark Village and Tallahassee, who was calling to share some information about the original Chapman School. In the rst article about the Chapman outhouse, (See The Times, June 26 issue), we mentioned that an insurance map of the Chapman School showed three small out buildings along the back border of the property. We speculated that there were three outhouses, for boys, for girls and for teachers. Blanchette had better information. She said there was once a little store located on the grounds of the school and said she knew where it is now located. When the old school was demolished, her grandfather, Rudolph Marshall, moved the store to the rear of his home on Avenue B across from Lafayette Park. The small cypress structure is still there and has been converted into a guesthouse with an outdoor shower. Blanchette said she remembers when there were signs on the walls of the store and a string ball for wrapping packages still hung suspended in the ceiling. Joe Barber remembers that an African-American man named Gaines was the shopkeeper. Barber said the store sold candy and school supplies. He believes that three windows currently located on the south wall of the building have been added since the store was moved. Blanchette said she has much more information on the prominent Marshall family and promised to share it in the future so we look forward to further historical consultations with her.

By July 16, 1964, summer was in full swing and the weather was good. Chapman School partnered with Apalachicola’s City Recreation Commission to offer a wide variety of recreational activities. On weekdays, from 9 to 11 a.m. there were arts and crafts for children aged 7 to 10. From 9 a.m. until noon, the city library offered math tutoring for kids entering the seventh grade. At the Chapman Gym, there was ping-pong, checkers, basketball and weightlifting from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. In the evenings after 5 p.m., there was baseball and softball. Every week from June through August, there was a free movie at the community house on Sunday night. On July 19, it was the Disney version of “Alice in Wonderland.” If you wanted to eat out, Maude’s restaurant in Eastpoint had an 85cent lunch special every day but Monday. The establishment also offered seafood and steaks, cocktails and dancing and there was a package store on site. Joe Barber, Carol McLeod and their coworkers on the St. George Island ferry ate lunch there several times a week. At Rich’s Supermarket, in Port St. Joe, weekly specials included saltines for 29 cents a box, cantaloupes for 15 cents, tuna sh for 19 cents a can and you got free turnip greens when you bought ve pounds of pig tails or pigs feet for 69 cents a pound. Okra was $2.60 a bushel. Tomatoes were 19 cents a pound, and you got a dozen eggs for free with any $10 purchase.

This immediately rose to my attention. I was a crew chief on a Martin B-26 pulling tow targets for the aerial gunnery school. I was stationed at Apalachicola Air Force Base in 1944. I still remember on payday or so we in the barracks would take up a collection, pennies, nickels and dimes, and one man would go to town and get a gallon of oysters.

Local A6 | The Times Thursday, July 17, 2014 The lighthouse, two keepers’ quarters and oil house, comprising a convoy over 900 feet long and two lanes wide, were moved in a daylong process that was observed, despite rain in the morning, by throngs that lined the roads and high ways – or those folks unfor tunate to get stuck behind the convoy on the path to Port St. Joe. “It was watching his tory go by,” said Libia Tay lor, whose realty ofce is on Cape San Blas Road. The trip ended at First Baptist Church, where the structures were left over night until moving to George Core Park. On those last few miles and around the church park ing late the spectacle lured so many, including a number who came from out of town to witness, that organizers of the annual Christmas Pa rade would be jealous. Throngs continued to visit the church parking lot until sunset, cameras and phones raised, children in tow. Clay Smallwood of Preble Rish Engineers, the project manager on the move, said the last few hundred feet to George Core Park required downing one last power line that would have cut off pow er to move of downtown at dinner hour. “We didn’t think that was a good idea,” said Small wood, who received an ex tended round of applause at Tuesday night’s meet ing of the Port St. Joe City Commission. “The move went smooth ly,” said Mayor Mel Magid son. “They did a marvelous job.” The lighthouse will be lifted into position in the week or so, Smallwood said. Footers to accommodate the 100-foot, 60 ton lighthouse were poured two weeks ago in anticipation of the move. Ground preparation for the ancillary buildings was com pleted prior to pouring the lighthouse footers. Tuesday’s show began at 8 a.m. ET as the convoy trav eled from the lighthouse’s location of more than 100 years, down Cape San Blas Road toward State 30-A. The Cape San Blas Light house came under threat af ter Hurricane Isaac washed away a signicant amount of shoreline the summer of 2012. Eglin Air Force Base, which owns the property on which the lighthouse sat, de clared the structure surplus in 2012. The process of moving the lighthouse has taken nearly two years and plenty of debate between city and county ofcials in addition to a vocal contingent from the Cape that wished to see it relocated to Salinas Park on Cape San Blas Road. There were a few signs along Cape San Blas Road protesting the move, one saying “Mayor Mel’s Folly” referring to Port St. Joe Mayor Mel Magidson. But Tuesday night Magid son said that he believed most county ofcials did not want the structure. The lighthouse had been leased by the county in order to save and preserve it. That lease was nullied when the lighthouse was deemed sur plus. The Board of County Commissioners and city of Port St. Joe submitted appli cations for ownership of the lighthouse. In December 2012 the Department of the Interior deeded the lighthouse and buildings to the city. The city raised more than $700,000 for the structure’s relocation through private fundraising campaigns as well as over $500,000 in state appropriations. “We as a community de cided this (Port St. Joe) was the best place for it,” said Port St. Joe resident Dit Butler. Star Staff Writer Wes Locher contributed to this report. points, easily surpassing the min imum of 590 points needed to get an A grade. Schools are assigned points for earning satisfac tory or better scores in reading, math, science and writing on the (FCAT) Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, for achieving learning gains as measured by individual test results from one year to the next; and for doing well on the end of course (EOC) exams. In the ABC School’s case, all 17 of its students taking the one EOC course it offers, Algebra I, earned satisfactory or better re sults, so those scores of the top students were clearly among several areas that worked in the school’s favor. In addition, included in the school grade is the calculation of student gains of the lower 25 percent in reading and math, and that too helped the school earn the needed points. “That’s where we saw a lot of other school growth,” said ABC Principal Chi mene Johnson. “I am very proud of the stu dents, faculty, and staff and their hard work this year,” said John son. “Our teachers and staff worked diligently with their stu dents to help them reach their academic potential. The students were well prepared and rose to the challenge, giving their best to reach the high expectations set by the state.” FINE TUNING WITH ‘STUDENT SUCCE ssSS BINDER sS ’ She said the school engages in a cooperative effort to use bench mark assessments three times a year to assess how well stu dents understand the standards in reading, math and science be ing tested. Beginning in the rst nine-week grading period, once students have settled into the school year, teachers get a base line, and then review the data with students and revise instruc tion to meet academic needs. “Teachers keep ‘student suc cess binders,’ which are basically a portfolio of our students and their prior assessments, their academic history, so teachers get a picture of where our students fall,” Johnson said. “Teachers and teacher assistants provide reme diation one-on-one and in small groups to help students become more procient with subject area skills.” Further testing is done in De cember-January, and they review that data to ne tune the teaching approach. A third assessment is done the rst week of March, just before the FCATs, to further ad dress any weak spots in the stu dent’s education. On an ongoing basis, every Wednesday is devoted to a team review by teachers and admin istrators known as MTSS (MultiTiered Student Support) for the most at-risk students. Johnson, Assistant Principal Elizabeth Kirvin, Dean of Students Gina Taranto, and Guidance Counselor Susan Bachrach, review data with teachers in what used to be known as Response to Intervention. “Are there resources they need to further teach that stan dard? We sit with teachers to dis cuss individual students, which is required by law for schools to implement in order to meet the needs of those at-risk students,” Johnson said. “We ask ‘Is it be havior? Is it attendance? Is it an academic issue? Is it working to improve the student’s skills and ability? Are they still struggling?’ “They (teachers) work bell-tobell and pull those students dur ing special area times and after school,” said Johnson. “When I look back at the consistency of our school grade and scores, some of that is attributable to ne-tuning our teachers.” Overall, student assessments are done with Discovery Educa tion’s ThinkLink, a tool for what is called “predicative assessments,” used to help students meet Com mon Core standards and the Next Generation Sunshine State stan dards. Johnson said that over the last two years, students have also been assessed on the new Florida Standards. These standards will be es pecially crucial next year, when a new, simpler and more trans parent grading system will sup port the more rigorous Florida Standards, and the Florida Stan dards Assessment will replace the FCAT. This is the nal year school grades will be calculated using the current formula. “The new grading system that will start next year will continue to be crafted with input from par ents, teachers and educators,” said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. “Its focus on stu dent achievement and gains will help ensure a fair accountability system that helps measure stu dent knowledge of the new Flor ida Standards.” CC HANGEs S IN THE f F ACULTY The charter school adminis tration has been busy this sum mer addressing faculty changes. Tanya Joanos, who taught sev enth grade civics and language arts, has moved to Wakulla County. She has been replaced by Allison Crum, a Carrabelle native who has taught in schools throughout Florida. For the last ve years she has taught language arts at North Bay Haven Charter Academy in Panama City. The mother of three boys, in kindergarten, fth and seventh grade, Crum is the wife of Ron Crum, pastor of High Calling Church in Eastpoint. Elementary school teacher Marie Lee, who taught fourth grade mainly in the six years she has been at ABC, is moving to the Walton County area. Also, rst grade teacher Roxanne Ramsdell is moving back to St. Croix. Belinda Cassidy, a para professional who returned to Florida State University to get her bachelor’s degree, has been hired as a classroom teacher. Also, an additional pre-Kin dergarten class, with 10 students each half-day, has been added. This will be instructed by Amy Hersey, who worked as a teach er assistant for the last couple years and who took course work over the summer to be certied to teach pre-K.

This trend to have the best months on record continued in the rst two months of 2014, January was about 3 percent ahead of the year before, and Feb ruary was about 7 percent ahead. But in March, the bed tax receipts again dropped, this time by about 3.3 per cent, falling below the $80,000 mark set in 2013. In April, the bed tax re ceipts took a more than 10 percent nosedive, falling by more than $9,000 from the record $90,000 mark set in 2013. The April 2014 bed tax receipts were below those of April 2012. Bed tax collections for the three biggest months of the year – May, June and July – comprise nearly half of the entire bed tax re ceipts for the entire year. In the last scal year, bed tax receipts were at about $978,000, only about $22,000 short of the $1 million mark. With the exception of slight drops in the 2008-9 and 2009-10 scal years, TDC revenues have in creased every year since the tax was put into place in 2005, beginning with about $698,000 in its rst complete scal year of existence. Franklin County’s tour ism marketing efforts are currently funded through a 2 percent tourism tax col lected from visitors by lodg ing providers countywide.

Local The Times | A7 Thursday, July 17, 2014 Mike Ackerman, an Air Force environmental spe cialist, told the News Jour nal that the nal version of the impact statement will address the questions raised by Florida ofcials. Meanwhile, the FWC let ter stated the agency’s con dence that the Air Force’s plans for training in the forests “can be compatible with sound and sustained stewardship of natural resources.” But another issue for some who question the manner in which the mili tary is seeking permission to use the forests is that Army Special Forces troops already have outanked the draft of the Air Force’s EIS. Florida Forest Service records show that the 7th Special Forces Group, based at Eglin Air Force Base, has been granted four “use per mits” since September that authorized up to 46 Green Berets to conduct activities in the forest for up to a week at a time. Attorney Will Dunaway said the National Envi ronmental Policy Act “re quires that federal agen cies, including the military, evaluate the environmental impacts of their proposed actions before they commit resources to the project.” Further, “Conducting the training and then scoping an environmental impact statement is backwards,” he said. But Ackerman said the Army training exercises didn’t result in “any nega tive feedback from the pub lic with regards to these training events or impacts to public recreation.” He added that the Army’s ac tivities “provide an indica tion” that military maneu vers can be conducted in the forests without causing environmental damage. Separately, Dunaway also expressed doubt that the Air Force, which is re questing more access for its own forces and the Army, has fully complied with re quirements of the National Environmental Policy Act in its impact statement, even though the document exceeds 500 pages. Specically, Dunaway said, the Air Force’s docu ment doesn’t present “rea sonable alternatives” as required by the NEPA. Fed eral guidelines on NEPA oversight specify that the impact statement should examine alternatives “us ing common sense,” rather than simply document the impacts of the proponent’s desired action. As previously reported by the Pensacola News Journal, the Air Force im pact statement, released in May, essentially reects the rules that the Air Force detailed last year, including limits on the number of ve hicles, aircraft and troops that can participate in ma neuvers. The plan would ban live ammunition but al low paintball for simulated combat.

Commissioner Pinki Jackel read the following proclamation: “Whereas WOYS Oyster Radio, Franklin County’s only radio station started broadcasting on July 4, 1989; And whereas, since that date to the present, WOYS has broadcast, over the airwaves to the citizens of Franklin County and sur rounding areas; And whereas WOYS has provided fair, accurate and timely news that would not have otherwise been cov ered by an out-of-county radio or television station; And whereas WOYS has been an enthusiastic sup porter of the people and businesses of Franklin County giving of its time and talents to help and pro mote the local community; And whereas WOYS is designated as Frank lin County’s emergency broadcast station; And whereas during tropical storms, hurricanes and severe weather events, WOYS has conveyed infor mation vital to the health welfare and safety of the citizens and visitors of Franklin County to the public; Now therefore, be it resolved to the Franklin County Board of County Commissioners that WOYS is herewise commended for 25-years, plus one of service to the people of Franklin County, Done this rst day of July, at a regular meeting of the Franklin County Board of County Commissioners at Apalachicola Florida. “We do love Oyster Ra dio,” said Commissioner Cheryl Sanders. — By LOIS SWOBODA By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes At the July 1 county meeting, commissioners took the rst steps toward installing an improved soccer eld at Donnie Wil son Sports Park. Betty Sasnett, presi dent of the Franklin Coun ty Youth Soccer League, launched the discussion with a request for help. “A lot of us have been driving to Gulf County for 10 or 15 years in order for our kids to play soccer,” she said. She said that when the youth soccer league was created in 2012, the coun ty commission promised to patch up the baseball outelds for use as soccer elds. She said commis sioners promised the soc cer league a more perma nent facility in 2013. Sasnett said 103 chil dren played in the soc cer league last year and that the county now has several certied referees. She said the league now wants to begin hosting home games against Gulf County teams. “This is a great oppor tunity for our kids to get ready to play soccer in high school,” she said. “I know we had several kids who went to college on soccer scholarships this year. We’re here today to see what your plans are to create our soccer elds.” Sasnett said parents would also like to see a basketball court installed at Wilson Field. She said a court had been discussed in 2012. Commissioner Noah Lockley said he supported Sasnett’s goals for improv ing sports elds. Lockley moved that a portion of $350,000 reim bursed by the Florida Com munities Trust for a land purchase be used to fund the eld improvements. “I would like to see us move forward on this,” said Commissioner Smokey Parrish. “I don’t know that we have the money to do the entire project.” Sasnett said the area designated for soccer at Wilson Field is very lowlying and needs to be upgraded. Commissioner Cheryl Sanders asked how much upgrading the eld would cost. Assistant County Plan ner Mark Curenton said that in an application for a Florida Recreation De velopment Assistance Program (FRDAP) grant made in 2013, the esti mated cost of a lighted soccer eld at $103,000. The cost of constructing a lighted basketball court was an estimated $44,000. The FRDAP grant was not funded. Lockley and Sanders said they felt the soccer eld was a priority because it had been promised. Commissioner Pinki Jackel said the commis sion had planned to use state funds. David Sas nett, who coaches soccer, said the source of funding was not mentioned when the eld was promised. “Whether we have to pay for it, or the state has to pay for it, they’re going to have it,” Sanders said. “The priority right now is a soccer eld.” She asked Clay Ken nedy of Preble Rish, the county’s engineering con sultant, if a soccer eld would cost $103,000. He said that it would be a tight budget for a lighted eld. “I would like for a cost to come before this board,” said Sanders. “This is another ex ample of us not having the information in advance (of the meeting),” Jackel said David Sasnett said he hoped there would not be more delays for the proj ect. “We thought the num bers were already there. I’m not a commissioner. She (his wife) is not a com missioner,” he said. Sanders asked if any thing could be done im mediately to prepare for a soccer eld. “Loads of dirt. It’s very, very low,” said Betty Sasnett. Parrish asked if the work could be done by ex isting county crews. “In the middle of the summer, it would be rough,” Superintendent of Public Works Howard Nabors said. He said he could work on the project bit by bit. Parrish said the project could not be nished by soccer season under those circumstances. Sanders said there was a second soccer eld at Kendrick Park that could be used. “It is full of stickers. It needs work,” said David Sasnett. Nikki Millender, direc tor of Parks and Recre ation, said the $100,000 included lighting but the league was more con cerned with immediate use of the eld. She said she could get a breakdown on the cost of upgrading the eld without lighting. Commissioners direct ed Nabors and Millender to bring back estimates of the cost of upgrading the eld to the next meeting.

By F RANK SARGEANT The gag grouper season opened July 1 in the Gulf of Mexico, and continues to Dec. 3. By all accounts, it should be one of the best in Panhandle waters in recent years, with lots of legal-sized sh, more than 22 inches long, available. Most anglers report that there are loads of “eating size” gag grouper in the Gulf these days, but scientists are still concerned that there appear to be low numbers of the largest adult males that are responsible for most successful spawning. Like many shes, gags ( Mycteroperca microlepis ) change sex as they age, with the males evolving from mature females. Thus, unless a lot of females escape hooks and natural predators to an advanced age — about 11 years in this case when they’re over three feet long — there are few males on the deep reefs at spawning time. Gags can get huge: Angler Billie Currie caught one that went 62 pounds, 6 ounces off St. Pete in 2003, a sh that still holds the 50-pound-test IGFA record for men. The all-tackle record scaled 80 pounds, 6 ounces, and was caught off Destin in 1993. These giant sh — more than 50 inches long — might be as much as 30 years old, according to NOAA scientists. In mid-summer most gags still are in relatively deep water, 60 feet and more because of the warm water, but as the cold fronts begin to arrive they pull nearer shore. Mid-October to November can offer action at depths as shallow as 30 feet, and some anglers will nd the gags by towing a large diving plug like the Mann’s Plus 25 to reach down close to the structure. The classic method of catching gags is to nd a rockpile or ledge with sonar and GPS and drop down a live bait. Seasoned reef anglers have hundreds of these spots xed in their GPS units and can return to them accurately time after time. Less expert anglers can buy lists of “community holes,” well-known outcroppings that are starting points for bottom shing. While these commercialized numbers rarely hold many keepers, they are often part of much longer chains of rock that do, so provide a good general guide of where to start searching. Best live baits are typically grunts or pinsh 4 to 5 inches long; these baits are hardy, and big gags love them. They also readily grab cut bait when you rst stop on a reef, but as the survivors get wise to the hooks, the live bait is often the ticket to turning on the bite again. Live sardines are also very effective. It’s also a good idea to carry along a chum cage if you’re a serious grouper digger. This is a weighted metal cage into which a mix of chopped sh, dog food and menhaden oil is placed. The cage is then lowered down on the uptide side of the target structure. As the scent ows over the rocks, it often pulls the sh out and puts them in a feeding mood. An added advantage is that you can sometimes lure the sh several feet away from the rocks before you put the bait in front of them, which gives you a big advantage when a lunker takes hold and tries to get back to his rocky hole for a cutoff. Although some reef shes are nibblers, the gag makes it very clear when you get a bite; the strike of a 20-pounder will just about put you on your knees, and then it’s a pulling contest for the rst 20 feet as you struggle to horse the sh away from his rocky lair. Another tactic that works on hard bottom up to about 50 feet deep is trolling with large plugs or jigs of 4 to 8 ounces, dressed with plastic swimmer-tails 6 to 8 inches long, trailed 30 to 50 feet behind a downrigger ball. The advantage of this tactic is that you can cover a lot of terrain in short order, and anywhere you hook a gag, you drop an electronic waypoint, because you can be sure where you caught one on the articial, you can catch several more on live baits if you return and anchor on the spot.

By LOIS SWOBOD AA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes Several hundred times a year, I get a call from somebody who has “something that looks like ants with wings” flying around their home. What they are usually describing is a “nuptial swarm” of mating ants or termites. Both termites and ants are “social insects” meaning they live in large family groups with one or more reproductives or “queens.” Most ants and termites are not sexually active. When a group of ants or termites is large and healthy, it periodically produces a group of insects capable of reproduction. These queens and kings have wings allowing them to fly away from their home nest and set up a new colony elsewhere. Most reproductives die before producing offspring. Normally, both ant and termite reproductives fly on a sunny day following a rain. The rain makes the soil softer and makes it easier for a young queen to dig a first nest. Formosan termites are an exception because they can emerge at night. Different kinds of ants and termites emerge at different times of year. Generally, all of the ants or termites of a single species emerge on the same day or within the same few days. This year, both carpenter ants and fire ants on St. George Island have emerged in large numbers over several weeks. If you have “flying ants” in your home or business, the most important thing to remember is to get a sample. It is impossible for me or anyone to tell the difference between ants and termites based on a verbal description from someone who isn’t trained to tell them apart. If you are looking at a swarm and trying to identify the insect, there are several easy ways to tell termites from ants. Ants have a distinct waist; termites do not. Ants have “elbow” antennae with two distinct segments, while termites have antennae that resemble a string of beads. Both ants and termites, like most insects, have four wings. The wings on a termite reproductive are similar in size and shape. Winged ants have much larger wings in the front, and small triangular wings in the rear. If you have a reproductive swarm emerge in your structure, keep a sample for a trained professional to examine. Put the insects in a bag and place it in the freezer.

By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes The Franklin County Belles, an All-Star group of the nest 13to 15-year-old softball players in the coun ty, are now the nest team in the state. The Belles went unde feated as they best the top teams in Florida last week end in Okeechobee to earn a berth in the World Series the rst week of August in Louisiana. “Our girls went through the toughest part of the bracket, and went unde feated through the entire state championship,” coach Joseph Ferrell said. “I’m very proud of the girls. Our 12 girls represented Frank lin County extremely well. They had great attitudes; we couldn’t ask more from our kids.” The girls opened Friday against West Pasco, and played what Ferrell said was probably the team’s toughest game outside of Monday’s championship. “We came out rst and posted seven runs in the rst three innings,” he said. “But then we let them come back in the third and they scored seven runs on us.” The Belles rallied, scored three more runs, and then shut down their opponents over the last four innings, to notch an 11-7 victory in seven innings. Pitcher Jaylyn Charles hurled the rst three in nings, and Megan Collins went the rest of the way, to combine for the win. The Belles’ second game was on Saturday against Belleview, and the Frank lin County girls coasted to a 13-1 win “Our bats came out hot and we ended up beating them in ve in nings,” Ferrell said. “Our bats were there that day. We had great bats the entire tournament.” Charles and Alexus Johnson shut down their opponents. “It was great pitching from both girls,” the coach said. A second game slated for Saturday had to be post poned because of rain and lightning delays, and it was played Sunday morning against Lake Placid. Again, the Belles ham mered their adversaries, defeating them 16-2 in ve innings. Collins pitched four innings and Charles one. On Monday was the championship game against Lake Placid, which would have had to beat Franklin County twice to advance. The score was knotted 11 after the rst inning, and in the second inning, Lake Placid went up 2-1. “We told the girls it was a matter of how bad they wanted the championship and they had better turn it on,” Ferrell said. The Belles did just that, coming out in the bottom of the third inning to score ve runs to go up 6-2. Lake Placed added a run in the fourth inning, but that would be all, as it was three up, three down for them in the next three innings. The Belles capped off the game with another run in the sixth, to win the state title 7-3. Collins pitched a com plete seven-inning game in the title game. At each game the tourney handed out an MVP award for sportsmanship and good play. In the opener against West Pasco it was Melanie Collins; in the second game against Belleview it was Kimmie Boone; in the third game against Lake Placid it was Madison Smith; and in the championship is was Jaylyn Charles. “Madison Smith had a great series hitting the ball, and so did Melanie Collins,” Ferrell said. The Belles plan to leave July 31 to go to Poncha toula, La., to represent Florida in the World Series and will be playing Aug. 1 to 6. “I want to thank every body that supported us to this point, and for their continued support of us through these girls,” Fer rell said. “These girls de serve every bit of it.” 4518470 FRANKLIN COUNTY TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING SCHEDULE CHANGE 2013-14 FY SOME OF THE THE FOLLOWING MEETINGS HA VE BEEN CANCELED OR RESCHEDULED We dnesday JUL Y 2, 2014– 3:00 PM – Boar d Meeting CANCELED We dnesday JUL Y 16, 1:30 p.m. Committee Meeting, RESER VE, Eastpoint We dnesday AUGUST 6, 3:00 PM, Boar d Meeting CANCELED and DA TE AND LOCA TION RESCHEDULED TO: MONDA Y, AUGUST 4, 3:00 PM Boar d Meeting, City of Apalachicola Community Meeting Room, Bay Av e We dnesday AUGUST 20, 1:30 p.m. Committee Meeting, City of Apalachicola Community Meeting Room, Bay Av e We dnesday SEPTEMBER 3, 3:00 pm, Boar d Meeting, Carrabelle City Of ces We dnesday SEPTEMBER 17, 1:30 pm, Committee Meeting, Carrabelle City Of ces These ar e OPEN public meetings and two or mor e County Commissioners may attend.

The Belles hoist their state championship trophy high. Debs take runners-up at state By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes The Franklin County Debs All-Stars, made up of the top 16 to 18 year old soft ball players in the county, had to settle for a second place trophy last week at the state tournament in Okeechobee. Led by coach Kevin New ell, and assistants Matt Kel ley and Gary Martina, the team faced off in a ve-team eld that also included West Pasco, Wahneta, Okeechobee and Spring Hill. In the opener Friday against West Pasco, it was a dogght to the end as the two teams went into the bot tom of the seventh tied 3-3. Carly Sapp, who is from Carrabelle but played at Liberty County High School, gave up two walks, and then a run-scoring base hit by West Pasco star Diane Rad er, as the Debs lost 4-3. Only catcher Ally Millen der and center elder Mad die Newell had hits in the game, with Newell hitting a double. In the second game Saturday morning against Wahneta, the Debs got back on track with a 7-3 victory. Ashley Carroll got the win on the mound and Macey Hunt earned the save, as well as going 4-for-4 at the plate in the game. “We played great defense, and had some timely hits in that game,” coach Newell said. “It was close for a little while, because they had slow pitching and we’re not used to it. It took until the fth in ning to adjust, and then we blew the game open and won handily.” The second game Satur day afternoon was delayed by rain, but when it cleared, the Debs beat up on Spring Hill 11-4. “We took care of business on those guys,” Newell said. “The whole team hit pretty well. We had a couple girls around the .500 range or better.” Krista Martina was win ning pitcher, as Hunt went 3 for 4 at the plate, Maddie Newell 3 for 4, and Sapp 2 for 4. On Sunday, the Debs played host Okeechobee, who earlier in day had lost 10-5 to West Pasco, and played Franklin County im mediately afterwards. “It was a bad, bad score, 27-3,” Newell said. “We 10 runs after ve innings, and by the second inning it was 14-0. We was bound and de termined to nally play a complete game and boy, did we ever do that defensively. “Our bats came alive, and everybody hit and everybody scored a lot,” Newell said. “We had to make our girls leave base early, it was that bad.” Sapp got the win on the mound, and Hunt got the save. After climbing up in the losers’ bracket, the Debs faced having to defeat West Pasco twice on Monday to defend their state title. “Basically it was a pitch er’s duel,” Newell said. “It was Sapp vs. Rader, who is dynamic. She’ll go to Divi sion I college as a pitcher. She’s a one-man band, their offense and defense.” The two teams played scoreless innings up until the fth inning, when a cou ple of West Pasco walks, and a bloop hit triggered a sixrun rally, and the end of the Debs’ hopes for a trip to the World Series. “We left 11 runners on the bases, runners on second and third. We just couldn’t get a run in,” Newell said. “We had our chances offen sively but just could not get a timely hit. “I had the pitching at the state tournament, I had ve quality pitchers. It just wasn’t in the cards for some reason,” Newell said. “We took home second place but we’re kind of used to winning the champion ships. We just fell short on our bats.”
