Book signing Saturday for monster hunter

A cryptid creature is something odd that many people report seeing, but whose existence has not been scientifically confirmed. Think skunk ape, or the Carrabelle cat. Florida (naturally) has a superfluity of the critters, and cryptozoologist, author, and TV personality Scott Marlowe is on their trail. In “The Cryptid Creatures of Florida,” Marlowe investigates the Pensacola sea monster and the giant Juno worm. Join him at Downtown Books, 67 Commerce Street in Apalachicola, this Saturday, Sept. 7 from 1 to 3 p.m., for an investigation of these and other aquatic, avian, and terrestrial terrors. He will debut his new book, “Bigfoot Enigma” at the signing.


Ice carving rescheduled for Saturday

An ice carving event, originally scheduled for Aug. 17 as part of the annual Apalachicola Festival of Ice, has been rescheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7 at the John Gorrie Museum, 46 Sixth St. in Apalachicola. The event, honoring Dr. John Gorrie, father of modern refrigeration, will take place from noon to 5 p.m. and feature music, games and an ice carving competition.
