Mr. Jay Landers, Jr.
July 21, 1987
Page Two

On most occasions in the past, I've afforded myself the luxury
of completing projects and addressing duties and obligations
willingly entered into. Not to be able to see this one through to
completion will be a regret for some time.

No public issue concerns me more than the protection of Florida's
natural resources and the development of rational programs which
balance the needs of our environment and economy. To be unable
to translate that concern into a commitment of time frustrates
and saddens me.

I thank each member of the committee for the courtesies extended
to me and for new friendships made. Good luck with your final

I am,

Sincerely yours,

W. i. Spann

Dear Jay,

For the last few weeks, I have diligently attempted to keep abreast
of the committee's activities by reviewing the various reports
submitted to its members for consideration. Unfortunately, the
press of business has prevented me from attending the last three
meetings of the committee and deprived me of the opportunity to
participate in its deliberations.

I fully understand that the issues faced by the committee are for
more complex than the public often perceives them to be, and
that the potential solutions you are considering require considered
judgement and disciplined study. There can be no allowance for
uninformed opinion as you move toward preparation of the
committee's final report.

It is with some embarrassment that I place my opinions in that
"unneeded" category. I'm afraid my enthusiasm for change may
not be balanced by my knowledge of what form change should
take. My inability to attend meetings has reduced the confidence
I need to make a valued contribution to your work.

Since we last met, Bay Point Management Associates has assumed
management of the Lake Placid Country Club at Lake Placid, New
York, the Continental Regency Hotel in Peoria, Illinois, and
Hillcrest Country Club in Slidell, Louisiana. We have also initiated
construction of a golf course at Gulf Shores, Alabama, and
continued the development of Bay Point Yacht and Country Club
and the American Orient Express. These various obligations
have prevented me from devoting myself to duties I willingly
accepted a year ago as a committee member.

I see no relief from these obligations sufficient to allow me to
turn my full attentions to the work of the committee or to partic-
ipate in its meetings. It is with great regret that I, therefore,
request that you and the other members of the committee accept
this letter of resignation and apology.
