A Valentine Story
in a Modern Context


The Hamilton Team

Mixes Braided Rugs with

Engineering

When you look at a braided rug by Mary Beth Hamilton, there is far
more than meets the eye. Not only are her rugs of unusually high
quality, for reasons given below, but the story of their manufacture
reveals a close husband-wife association appropriate for a more "mod-
ern" kind of Valentine's Day story, and presents an interesting model
for yet another way of making a living in the panhandle counties.
Mary Beth's husband is Joe Hamilton, Franklin County's Engineer.
He is also an airplane pilot. Joe has, more than once, applied his
engineering skills in helping Mary Beth maintain and operate her
equipment used in making braided rugs. She says: "He's been real
game about getting into this. We enjoy being together and doing things
together. We're looking forward to a full retirement...and this is some-
thing that we intend to do once he retires from the County..."
Mary Beth operates "The Painted Pony" on highway 98, across the
road from the Express Lane in Eastpoint.

Ben Johnson Agrees

to Delay Filing on

Resort Village


Responding to the St. George
Plantation Owners' (POA) offer to
nullify the original "Ben Johnson
Agreement," Dr. Johnson has
agreed to briefly postpone devel-
opment of Resort Village.
Johnson's attorney, Russell D.
Gautier (Tallahassee) wrote Rich-
ard W. Moore (POA attorney),
"Dr Johnson has agreed to this
delay based upon the under-
standing that, during the inter-
vening period, intensive negotia-
tions will occur in an effort to
identify and amicably resolve any
and all outstanding issues con-
cerning his development propos-
als, the procedures to be followed
in reviewing those proposals, and
any other matters of mutual con-
cern, including the 1992 POA-RV
(Resort Village) Agreement."
Specifically, Dr. Johnson has
agreed not to file the Notice of Pro-


posed Change (NOPC) that has
been required by Franklin County
and the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs any sooner than
March 1, 1996. Moroever, Dr.
Johnson has also been willing to
consider a further postponement
beyond this date if significant
progress is being made in the ne-
gotiations.
Johnson's attorney offered some
guidelines to the POA attorney,
including a proposal that the
negotiating team should not con-
sist of any more than five indi-
viduals-including counsel.
'These individuals must have the
confidence and support of both .
the board of directors and the
membership as a whole," Gautier
wrote. "Where significant differ-
ences of opinion and conflicting
priorities exist within the associa-
tion, the negotiating team must
successfully reconcile these inter-


School Board
Listens to Grant
Writing/Lobbyist

Proposal

Brent Taylor from Policy Works
and Chris Doolin from the Robert
P. Jones & Associates Govern-
mental Relations Consultants met
with the Franklin County School
Board members for a February 1
workshop.
Mr. Doolin informed board mem-
bers that his organization has
been providing small school dis-
trict counseling since 1984.
Doolin's organization already rep-
resents Franklin County as a leg-
islative lobbyist. He noted that his
company presently represents 23
schools. "We are principally rural
oriented in nature and that's by
design. Our commitment is to the
small districts and small commu-
nities in rural Florida." Doolin
said that the best way to lobby
legislators was for rural counties
to stick together on common
needs and lobby for those needs.
He listed examples of full-service
schools, district cost differential,
school transportation .and PECO
(Public Education Capital Outlay)
funding as wide-spread rural is-
sues ot concern. "The legislative
process is a political process. It
works on the basis of numbers of
votes. Rural legislators are dra-
matically outnumbered." Doolin
said that there were 160 legisla-
tors in Tallahassee and only about
30 were from small counties. "So,
we work very closely with
them...Senator Thomas, Repre-
sentative Trammell and Repre-
sentative Boyd."

Buddy Fredricks


Board Takes

Action on

Building

Violation

County Planner Alan Pierce
brought the matter of an ease-
ment violation on St. George Is-
land by Buddy Fredricks to the
(attention of the board of Franklin
-'County Commissioners at their
February 6 meeting.
Mr. Pierce said that Buddy
Fredricks had built a stairwell at
his mini-warehouse building on
Pine Street that violated the set-
back requirements by approxi-
mately five feet. Pierce said that
no variance had been granted by
the county for the setback viola-
tion. In addition, Pierce said that
Mr. Fredricks also has a problem
with his on-site sewage facility.
"At this point, there are so many
complaints about where the drain
sites are and whether they are the
adequate size," said Pierce.
Mr. Willie Norred said that vari-
ances were always granted for
setback disputes on St. George
Island. 'There are so many vari-
ances granted on St. George Is-
land that the ordinance is
probably not even enforceable. It's
highly unusual in most jurisdic-
tions in commercial areas to have
side setbacks. You don't see them
in Apalachicola or Eastpoint. I
would recommend to the county
that you review this ordinance
and wipe out side setback lines
in commercial areas. You grant
hundreds of variances every year."
Commissioner Edward Tolliver
noted, "We can be lenient. We
don't have to be like the D.C.A.
[Department of Community Af-
fairs] and go by the rules." He con-
tinued, "We don't need to change
nothing. We can let Buddy
[Fredricks] put his steps in. If he
wants to put them [steps] in the
Gulf, let him put them in the Gulf.
If the storm comes and knocks
them down, he can put them up

Wellsprings Plans

Liquidation Instead of

Reorganization


In papers filed in U. S. Bank-
ruptcy Court on January 29,
1996, Wellsprings Home Health
Care now intends to liquidate
their business entirely instead of
remaining in operation and reor-
ganizing. In a request for a con-
tinuance of the February 8, 1996
hearing, which was supposed to
liquidate the firm under Chapter
7 of the' bankruptcy law, the U.
S. Trustee (James Bennett) asked
to continue the matter for an in-
definite period. In the Bennett
motion, Wellsprings attorney was
cited as the source for the plan to
liquidate the business while re-
maining under the purview of
Chapter 11. One advantage in this
procedure is that the debtor firm
(Wellsprings in this instance) may
still conduct business. In that
connection, the U. S. Trustee also
referenced some correspondence


from other parties who have indi-
cated an interest in purchasing
the Wellspring's certificate of need
and its six licenses to operate a
home health care facility.
The continuance was granted by
Bankruptcy Judge Lewis Killian.
No date was set for the continued
hearing. Nor does the public file
contain any information as to the
identity of the interested parties
who might buy the Wellsprings li-
censes.
In the last month, the medical
service business headquartered in
Carrabelle dropped to two fulltime
einployees, down from a Novem-
ber total of four fulltime and seven
parttime employees. Now there
are two employees according to
the December report filed with the
Court.


again."
Commissioner Dink Braxton
pointed out that Mr. Fredricks'
permit was not in accordance to
what he had requested to build.
Braxton said that permits contin-
ued to be issued to Fredricks' fa-
cility, which was under the guise
of a mall when it actually was
permitted as a mini-warehouse.
"And he didn't apply for a vari-
ance either, so he's in violation of
both." He continued, "Everybody
should go by the same rule. It's
that simple. He should take the
steps down."
A resident responded on behalf
Fredricks, "That building is zoned
C-2. There's not a building in
there that doesn't fall within that
zoning."
Mary Lou Short (owner of the Is-
land Emporium) said that she was
an adjacent property owner to Mr.
Fredricks' mini-warehouse. She
said that Fredricks' property was
permitted as a 5,800 square foot
mini-warehouse. "This is why we
now have the problems that exist
in this particular area. We now
have a two story building that's
probably closer to 7,000 square
feet." Ms. Short also said that, in


Mary Lou Short
every septic tank permit, the origi-
nal 5,800 square footage was
listed. In addition, Ms. Short said
that the adjoining meat market's
status was removed from the gro-
cery to obtain another permit. Ms.
Short noted that the meat mar-
ket was a major user of the septic
tank system. "What we have here
is a potential blowout on a septic
system that is totally inadequate."
She said that the building did not
have a stormwater permit, either.
"When I wanted to expand, I had
to spend money for a stormwater
permit. I'm asking for compli-
ance." She concluded, "One of the
problems is that we have busi-
nesses in there that are almost to
the point where they may be
closed down because of the sep-
tic system. Nobody wants that. I
would like for Buddy [Fredricks]
to come in compliance and go
through the proper procedure for
a variance."

Florida

Shrimpers

Association

Created

A new organization to help unify
commercial seafood workers
statewide was created in Frank-
lin County in late January 1996.
The new organization is the
Florida Shrimpers Association,
which already contains more than
100 members, according to the
organization's president Bruce
Millender.
"This is something that we've been
needing for a long time," Mr.
Millender said. 'The seafood in-
dustry is one of the oldest indus-
tries and we've got to protect it."
Millender said the new organiza-
tion will work closely with the De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection, the Florida Marine Patrol
and the Marine Fisheries Com-
mission to keep the agencies
aware of the commercial fishing
industry's interests. He also said
that another goal of the Florida
Shrimpers Association is to keep
seafood workers informed of new
policies and issues confronting
the commercial seafood industry.
The Florida Shrimpers Associa-
tion plans to meet monthly. Of-
ficers to the newly created orga-
nization include Steve Davis,
Vice-President. The organization
is represented by Attorney Patrick
Floyd.

Suspect In

Robbery

Arrested

Franklin County Sheriffs Office
Major Jimmy Williams announced
today an arrest has been made for
the early morning armed robbery
at the Jr. Food Store 52 located
in Apalachicola.
At 6:11 a.m. on Monday, Febru-
ary 5th, the Sheriffs Office was
contacted in reference to an early
morning armed robbery. At the
time only the District Manager
and Store Manager were in the
store when a young, black male
entered the store brandishing a
small revolver demanding all the
money. When the two women
didn't move fast enough, he fired
the weapon into the air. He then
grabbed the money and fled on
foot.
The store security camera got a
good enough shot of the young
man for veteran officer Sonny
Whitehurst with the Apalachico-
la Police Department accompa-
nied by officers from the Sheriffs
Office went to the man's home
and arrested Horace Harris, 21,
an Apalachicola resident without
incident.

Franklin

Briefs

Notes from the
February 6 Franklin
County Commission
Meeting


County Planner Alan Pierce of-
fered a revised holiday leave policy
to the board. He recommended
that, when a holiday falls on a day
when employees are not sched-
uled to work, the holiday will not
be observed, except when the
clerk of court authorizes another
day off that is consistent with the
State of Florida's judicial system.
"If the court system's open and
the courthouse is open, then we're
all working." As an example,
Pierce said that if Christmas was
on a Tuesday, the employees
would be excused from work on
Monday, Tuesday and Wednes-
day. However, if Christmas was on
a Sunday, Pierce said that em-
ployees would only be excused on
Monday. If a holiday fell on a Sat-
urday, employees would only be
excused on that particular day.
The board unanimously adopted
Mr. Pierce's revised policy.


Solid Waste Director Van Johnson
said that individuals from
Wakulla County had requested
that the $65 per ton tipping fee
at the Franklin County Solid
Waste Department be lowered in
order to dispose of crab waste at
the landfill. The board denied the
request and noted that Wakulla
County residents would pay the
same tipping fee as Franklin
County residents.


County Engineer Joe Hamilton
informed the board that a
Stormwater Pollution Prevention
Plan was required by the Environ-
mental Protection Agency (EPA)
for the Apalachicola Airport,
which is considered an industrial
site. The plan must be completed
by March 29. Hamilton said that
he had received information at a
previous workshop on how to
complete the plan and said that
it would not cost Franklin County
any money in consultant fees
draw up the Stormwater Pollution
Prevention Plan.


Woody Miley requested on behalf
of the St. George Island Volunteer
Fire Department that the board
change its county ordinance so
that the M.S.B.U. funds could be
used for First Responders activi-
ties. Mr. Miley said that the First
Responders were part of the vol-
unteer fire department. The board
directed County Attorney Al
Shuler to investigate the matter.
**

The board voted to send a letter
to Senator Pat Thomas and Rep-
resentative Allen Boyd to request
them to "intercede" on the matter
of the recent closure on parts of
the Apalachicola bay.


County Extensibn Agent Bill
Mahan informed the board that
over 73,000 seedlings were being
shipped from the State's Tree
Nursery to Tallahassee. He said
that Ken Weber with the Division
of Forestry had volunteered to
pick up the seedlings and bring
them to Franklin County.


County Extension Agent Bill
Mahan informed the board that
Franklin County schools were
participating in their third year of
the Seat Belt Safety Program
sponsored by the 4-H program
and the Department of Transpor-
tation. Mr. Mahan said that the


program had over a 400 partici-
pant increase for the third
straight year. Teachers in grades
Pre-K-4th grade at Chapman El-
ementary School and in grades
from 7-9 at Carrabelle High
School have already agreed to
participate in the program.


County Extension Agent Bill
Mahan informed the board that
teachers at Chapman and Carra-
belle Elementary Schools have
already agreed to participate in
the next 4-H /Tropicana Public
Speaking Contest. The event in-
cludes students from grade 4-6.


County Planner Alan Pierce in-
formed board members that a
sign belonging to Huddle House
owner Jim Sullivan had been
placed on county property with-
out notice given or approval re-
ceived from the board of Franklin
County Commissioners.
Mr. Pierce said that the county
property was deeded, but not
used as a right-of-way. "The East-
point Mall, when that was a right-
of-way, we have made people re-
move signs that are on right-of-
ways for a variety of reasons. For
aesthetics and safety."
Mr. Sullivan said that he had al-
ready buried a post for a proposed
21 foot internally lighted sign. "I
was not aware I had to ask the
commission for approval," ex-
plained Sullivan. He said that he
had received written approval
from the county commissioners to
utilize the site. "It's merely a piece
of property that the county owns,
which ya'll have given me permis-
sion to utilize; and I consider a
sign as being utilization. I'm pav-
ing it ." Sullivan also stated that
he had given the board an indem-
nity agreement to protect the
county from any liability. He said
that the right-of-way did not serve
anyone, but himself. Sullivan
pointed out that both Taylor's
Building Supply and the K.O.A.
previously had signs on the site
in question; he noted that he has
since moved the two signs ap-
proximately 20 feet east, which is
into a wooded area. When asked
by board members if he obtained
permission from the business
owners to move the two signs,
Sullivan said he did not receive
such approval, but stated that
one of the signs was about to fall
down. He concluded, 'To do away
.with the sign would cost me
$4,537, which I've already paid to
have the sign constructed; and
commission of the sign would
definitely ruin my business, be-
cause I'm back off the highway so
far that I have no exposure."
County Attorney Al Shuler said
that, if the board allowed Sullivan
to use the county property, other
business owners may seek board
permission to gain such use of
other county deeded land. "You
might be surprised how many
people would find things they
want to do with your property if
you get too liberal with granting
such permission."
Commissioner Raymond Williams
recommended that the small piece
of county property be leased to Mr.
Sullivan. Commissioner Braxton
questioned who would determine
the price for leasing the county
land.
"A dollar a year would be fine,"
said Sullivan.
Commissioner Edward Tolliver
made a motion to charge one dol-
lar per year to lease the county
property to Mr. Sullivan. In fail-
ing to get a second to his
motion,Tolliver complained that
Chairman Mosconis was sup-
posed to make a request three
times for a second to a motion. "I
think we're here to help people,"
said Tolliver, "And if we've got
something that we're not using,
why not let the public use it if they
want to." He concluded, "We're not
here to down his [Sullivan's] busi-

ness; I don't see no need of us
holding it [county land] as a sa-
cred cow that's not giving any
milk."
County Planner Alan Pierce wor-
ried that other businesses might
expect to obtain "highway front-
age visibility" by leasing county
property from the board. "If you
don't own property on [Highway]
98 and you don't already have a
D.O.T. [Department of Transpor-
tation] sign permit, you probably
can't get one now."
Commissioner Dink Braxton said
that the county had just gone
through the process of creating a
sign ordinance, which he termed
as "murder." He continued,
"That's how all the signs got
moved off of all the county prop-
erties through the county. If we
start leasing, we're gonna open
something where everybody's
gonna want to lease property."
Braxton told Sullivan that he had
no idea that a sign would be
erected on county property.
"I did," replied Sullivan. He con-
tinued, "Dink [Braxton], you're
gonna ruin my business."
Sullivan complained,'This whole
thing is waking the dead. Taylor's
[Building Supply] and K.O.A. have
had their signs up there for years
and years and years." He ad-
dressed the board, "If I want to
park a car there, do I have to ask
permission?"
"Sure," responded Alan Pierce,
"It's our property."
The board then voted to have
county staff members investigate
the possibility of leasing the
county owned land to Mr.
Sullivan. 'They're giving you the
runaround," said Commissioner
Tolliver to Mr. Sullivan, "It's [the
land] of no use to us."

Apalachicola resident Sally Paul
came before the board to com-
plain about a property dispute.
Ms. Paul owns property near the
Apalachicola Airport. The board
of county commissioners previ-
ously quick claimed a piece of
property that apparently belongs
to Ms. Paul and attempted to sell
the property to Sun Bank. Ms.
Paul also complained that she
received notice about the quick
claim decision nearly a month af-


County Engineer Joe Hamilton
said that the property in question
had appeared to be "no man's
land." Commissioner Braxton,
who was the only board member
to vote against the decision to
quick claim the property in ques-
tion, fumed, "I told this board
about a month ago that you are
quick claiming somebody's land.
There ain't no such thing as no
man's land."
County Attorney Al Shuler said
that Ms. Paul and Sun Bank
could litigate the matter, but
pointed out that the board had
already received $5000 to deed
.18 acres and to quick claim .3
acres to Sun Bank. "But if we
back out at this stage," said
long


Sally Paul
Shuler, "We're probably incurring
liability."
"I didn't realize that we were quick
claiming the property that we
didn't have a cotton picking thing
to do with," said Chairperson
Jimmy Mosconis.
"I told you that," insisted Brax-
ton.
"You've said it now three times,"
Mosconis said to Braxton, "Now
just hold up for a moment."
Commissioner Williams said that
the board needed to reverse the
situation with Sun Bank. "We've
created this problem."


ter the board took such action. County Attorney Al Shuler recom-
mended that the board invite Sun
Bank representative to the next

meeting to possibly resolve the

County Planner Alan Pierce said
that he had attended a meeting
on enterprise zones. Pierce said
that only eight new enterprise
zones were expected to be created
in the State of Florida. He said
that Franklin County should con-
sider sharing one enterprise zone
in non-contiguous areas. One of
the areas would include Timber
Island and the Carrabelle
Riverfront. The other area would
include the Apalachicola Airport.
The application deadline for an
enterprise zone is May 15, 1996.


County Planner Alan Pierce in-
formed board members that the
Department of Environmental
Protection had allowed for routine
monitoring and sampling of
groundwater at the landfill. Pierce
said that such monitoring will
bring county costs down from
$100,000 to $30,000.
***

County Planner Alan Pierce pro-
vided the board with a copy of
conceptual approval agreement
between Franklin County and the
Florida Communities Trust for the
purchase of land in Indian
Mounds Subdivision. The board
will be required to take action on
the agreement by the February 20
commission meeting.


The board sent a letter of appre-
ciation to David Heil of the De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection on behalf of David Cole.
The board noted that Cole's work
with the reshelling project was
"above and beyond the call of


duty." Pierce said that some writ-
ten complaints had been sent to
David Hell by reshelling project
participants complaining about
Mr. Cole.


The board appointed Ted
Mosteller to serve on the Jobs and
Education Partnership Board,
which is affiliated with Gulf Coast
Community College. Mr. Mosteller
will join Chuck Marks and Kristin
Anderson as local board represen-
tatives.
***
The board agreed to approve the
Retired Senior Volunteer Program
(RSVP) to assist in the transpor-
tation of elderly residents during
times of evacuation. The only ex-
pense to Franklin County would
be in mileage expenses to RSVP
members in transportation dur-
ing evacuation periods.


County Planner Alan Pierce in-
formed the board that the 911
recorder at the Franklin County
Sheriffs Office was in need of re-
pair. Pierce said that a mainte-
nance agreement was also needed
for repair of such equipment. He
said that the agreement would
cost approximately $3,300 and
could be paid out of the county
911 trust fund. The maintenance,
said Pierce, is with Dictaphone,
who is the equipment manufac-
ture. He said that a 24 hour ser-
vice call requirement made such
an agreement so expensive.
***

County Planner Alan Pierce in-
formed the board that St. Joe
Telecommunications had sent the
board a contract for the enhanced
911 system. Pierce said that the

contract required that an up-front
fee of $60,000 be paid in two In-
stallments. He said that monthly
fees of $2,811 to lease the equip-
ment would also be required. An
initial cost of $12,000 must be
paid on execution of the contract
and $48,000 will be required to
be paid when the county goes on-
line. The costs will be paid with
the county's 911 fund. Mr. Pierce
said that Franklin County ex-
pected to go on-line by the fall of
1996, though was not required to
do so until January of 1998.


County Planner Alan Pierce in-
formed board members that
FEMA was currently withholding
money owned to the county for
repairs to the C.C. Land Road,
because the agency is trying to get
Federal Highway Administration
funds to reimburse the county.
Pierce said that he should have
more information about the mat-
ter soon.


The board unanimously agreed to
advertise fqr bids for the resur-
facing of the Alligator Point revet-
ment area.


County Clerk Kendall Wade said
that the County Courthouse had
a problem with its heating system.
He said that the old boiler, which
was operable, cost approximately
$200 per day to use. The other
heating system, said Wade, was
nearly 30 years old and was pres-
ently not in operation. "We're in a
position where we're pumping
good money after bad," said Wade.
It will cost over $14,000 to replace
the broken heating system.


Commissioner Braxton pointed
out that the board of Franklin
County Commissioners had paid
half of the D.A.R.E. Program's
budget through the Franklin
County Sheriffs Department:
S"The school board is the one that
didn't fund it," said Braxton.


Commissioner Putnal complained
of a situation of inadequate ser-
vice from the local animal control
officer. He said that his grandson
had recently been bitten by a dog,
but was unable to receive any help
in the situation. Putnal said that
his grandson's mother contacted
the animal control officer, in-
formed him of the situation,
though was allegedly informed
that the animal control was off
duty. "It's important that when a
dog bite occurs that this dog is
taken immediately and quaran-
tined for testing," said Putnal.
Commissioner Braxton, replied,
"We just passed a vicious dog or-
dinance here in the county and I


think that was a vicious dog."
Putnal said that the bite cases
were, however, accidental. "But I
think there should be a more. im-
mediate response," said Putnal.
Jane Cox, a member of the Fran-
klin County Humane Society, said
that humane society representa-
tives recently met with the Sher-
iff Warren Roddenberry and re-
quested that an additional deputy
be provided as backup service for
the present animal control officer.
Ms. Cox encouraged the board
members to write a letter in re-
gard to providing a backup ani-
mal control officer.
Commissioner Raymond Williams
said that he had been informed
that the animal control officer
would not come to an area of con-
cern unless called about the mat-
ter. "If we've got a lot of dogs run-
ning loose around here and we
have ordinances for that, then he
[the animal control officer] should
be out here patrolling throughout
the county at certain times."
"You've got to be a little more po-
lite to people when they've just
been through a crisis," said Com-
missioner Putnal.
The board agreed to write a letter
to the sheriffs department about
the matter.
Jane Cox pointed out that the
board allocated $10,000 to the
Franklin County Health Depart-
ment for the purpose of investi-
gating dog bites. "And that has
never happened," said Cox. She
concluded, "I think there has been
a confusion of roles and that has
never been clarified."


County Attorney Al Shuler said
that a time extension had been
granted on a lawsuit against the
Nature Conservancy, because the
board of commissioners had re-
quested to remand the case from
the federal to the state court.


County Attorney Al Shuler said
that exceptions have been filed by
independent parties against the
Ben Johnson proposed develop-
ment order for a wastewater plant.
Attorney Shuler informed the
board that the county was no
longer involved in the siit. He said
that the matter was expected to
be sent back to the cabinet.


County Attorney Al .Shuler said
that the Alligator Point Conserva-
tion District had requested-per-
mission to levy a tax. Attorney
Shuler said that the conservation
district was an independent en-
tity and could levy a tax, though
were required to follow the taxa-
tion statutes.

Enterprise

Zones

Discussed at

Apalachicola

City Meeting

Bill McCartney with Baskerville-
Donovan informed Apalachicola
City Commissioners that eight
new Enterprise Zones were auto-
rized to be created in the State of
Florida by the 1995 legislature.
McCartney estimated that ap-
proximately 19 Enterprise Zones
already existed.
"The designation as an Enterprise
Zone," explained McCartney,
"Would allow the area designated
to be exempt from a number of
state taxes." He continued, "If you
built a business in an Enterprise
Zone, it could be exempted from
some state sales tax on your prod-
uct and sales taxes on the mate-
rials that go into your busi-
nesses."
McCartney said that Enterprise
Zone designations could attribute
"bonus points" to a city for a Com-
munity Development Block Grant
applications and Economic Devel-
opment Transportation funding
programs.
McCartney said that a particular
county could have as many as
three non-contiguous parcels for
one Enterprise Zone application.
For instance, Franklin County
could designate one parcel of an
Enterprise Zone in Carrabelle and
another in Apalachicola in a joint
application; McCartney said, how-
ever, that an Enterprise Zone
could expand no larger than three
square miles.
"Well," responded Mayor Bobby
Howell, "That's bigger than the
whole city."
"There's a lot of work and a lot of
effort that goes into the designa-
tion," explained McCartney, "It
takes a management plan. It
takes an establishment of a com-
mittee. It takes goals and objec-
tives and a lot of economic re-
search." McCartney felt that Fran-
klin County could create a man-
agement plan free of charge.
The board then unanimously
agreed to direct Bill McCartney to
begin work on an Enterprise Zone
application.

In other city business:
*The board approved a task or-
der for the designing and permit-
ting of the Harborwalk Project. Mr.
McCartney said that
Apalachicola's project was ranked


eighth out of sixty-eight state
grant applications. He said that
topographic in-boundary surveys
had to be completed, submerged
land leases had to be obtained
from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and
dredge & fill permits needed to be
obtained from the Army Corps of
Engineers and D.E.P. in order to
complete the project.
*The board unanimously passed
a resolution requesting the City
of Apalachicola to Designate the
newly acquired Riverfront Prop-
erty Between Avenues E and D as
Veterans Riverfront Park

*The board appointed Commis-
sioner Jack Frye as the Apalachi-
cola City Representative for the
Keep Franklin County Beautiful
program.
*The board unanimously voted to
approve the Consumptive Use
Permit for the Renewal of Indi-
vidual Water Use.
*The board accepted bids by Apa-
lachee Building Supply ($37,416)
for building materials and the
Harris Brothers ($42,000) as con:
tractor for work on Battery Park
and Lafayette Park Dock.
*The board unanimously autho-
rized approval of the Surplus
Property Agreement.
*The -board agreed to allow the
Florida A&M Small Business De-
velopment Center to use the Apa-
lachicola Community Center con-
tingent on whether the program
is a not-for profit community-
based activity. However, if the pro-
gram institutes a fee for tuition,
the City of Apalachicola will
charge the program the regular
fee for use of the community cen-
ter.

*Attorney J. Patrick Floyd stated
that the attorneys representing
Wanda and Eric Teat were not
interested in any further docu-
mentation to be provided on the
matter of Huckleberry Creek. At-
torney Floyd said that, due to an
approaching statute of limitation
issue estimated at June of 1996,
attorneys for Eric and Wanda Teat
were more interested in filing the
civil suit, rather than continuing
negotiations.
*Mayor Bobby Howell said that
the Apalachicola Times published
incorrect information in concern
to the City of Apalachicola's ad-
vertisement for a federal grant.
Mayor Howell said that the fedss"
had stopped the City of Apalachi-
cola from continuing to seek ac-
cess to the grant, though he said
that the city would appeal the
matter. "There's nothing we can
do about it," said Howell, "Other
than lose eighty-four thousand
dollars." City Clerk Betty Taylor-
Webb-.said that two separate ad-
vertisements were sent with dates


This letter is in response to an article entitled "County Concerns Ad-
dressed at Legislative Delegation Meeting" published January 26, 1996
and which contained four paragraphs which refer to me by name.
This article contains numerous errors which need to be corrected.
The first paragraph states that I raised several issues, the first of
which concerns the rising costs of criminal prosecutions in this county
and quotes various figures. I did not raise this issue and I have no
idea what the costs of criminal prosecutions in this county are. This
issue was raised by the clerk of the court although you "quoted" the
statements as coming from me
In the second paragraph, it is correct that I am opposed to discovery
depositions. However, these depositions are not something prosecu-
tors are "required to submit to defense attorneys prior to a court
case." These depositions are when the defendant can force a witness,
under subpoena, to come to court to give a sworn statement which is
recorded under oath. When I was asked during the meeting how we
could reduce costs of criminal prosecutions, I suggested that the leg-
islators look into getting rid of these depositions. Only a few states in
this country require these depositions, they are expensive, and we
already turn over witness statements to the defendant!
In the third paragraph, it is correct that I requested the legislators
look into providing more funding to Probation and Parol Services (P &
P) so this county could afford a full' time state probation officer. How-
ever, I never suggested that "defendants on probation from other coun-
ties came to Franklin County to enjoy a more relaxed probationary
environment." That's ridiculous! Let me make this clear, in Franklin
county, our state probation officer is responsible for supervising per-
sons placed on probation here and those who transfer here from other
counties or states. I have'no personal knowledge what the conditions
are in the other counties or states: However, my understanding is
that supervision here is actually better than the average in this state!
As I said at the meeting, our state probation officers are doing an
outstanding job here, but their case load is increasing and they are
overburdened with paper work. If the legislature keeps increasing
their workload, why can't they increase their funding?
The last paragraph implies I am opposed to allowing the defense to
pay for "investigative services." I am not opposed to these services, in
fact I am in favor of these services!

Sincerely,
F. T. Williams,
Assistant State Attorney

Carrabelle

City

Commission

Meeting

By Rene Topping
City Will Seek New Police
Officer
Carrabelle City Police Commis-
sioner George Jackson an-
nounced that Carrabelle City Po-
lice Officer Anthony Alligood has
resigned effective February 9, af-
ter serving just under a year as
an officer on.the Carrabelle De-
partment. The announcement
was made at the regular monthly
meeting of the commission held
Monday, February 5.
Commissioners decided that in
the future police officers will be
required to give a thirty day no-
tice if they decide to leave for an-
other job. City Attorney Bill
Webster said that the city would
then have time to look for a re-
placement but could make a res-
ignation effective at once if they
desired. Jackson also suggested
that the city ask parents to have
their children off the streets by
12:30 p.m. but the commission-
ers took no official action.
Commissioners approved a Task
Order for the Carrabelle Riverwalk
Park and Fishing Pier in the
amount of $24,000 for design ser-
vice fees. The project will contain
a Boardwalk, Pavilion, and Dock.
In addition there will be a covered
fishing pier, parking and water
and electricity to the pavilion. The
City has received grants of
$200,00 to complete the project
with cost of the construction set
at $176,000. Carrabelle Engineer
Bill McCartney also reported that
purchase of the land needed for
the project was underway and of-
fers' had been made but 'so far
none had been accepted.
The City will also be applying for
what is to be known as a "Net
Fishing Ban" Enterprise Zone
Designation. According to
McCartney this designation is for
an area targeted for economic re-
vitalization. Financial incentives
are offered to businesses to en-
courage private investment and
employment opportunities for the
area's residents. McCartney went
on to say that it is hoped that two
other non-contiguous zones
would be formed; one in Apala-
chicola and the other on East-
point.
Among the incentives from the
State are jobs tax credit against
corporate tax; property tax credit;
community contributions tax
credit; sales tax refund for build-
ing materials used in rehabilita-
tion of property, also sales tax
refunds for business equipment;
sales tax exemption for electrical
energy; and Enterprise Zone
linked deposit program. The dead-
line to apply is May 15, 1996 and
designated zones will go into ef-
fect on July 1, 1996.
The Commission tabled a request
from Garlick Environmental As-
sociates, Inc. for a review of con-
ceptual site plan and proposed
improvements for Riverside Mo-
tel. Commissioners request that
the Company be represented at
the March meeting at which time
they wi!! again take up the mat-
ter.

In keeping with decisions made
several times prior, commission-
ers decided unanimously to dis-
approve a request by Jewel

Commissioners approved the sale
of timber from an area on 1st

Proceeds will go into the city gen-
eral fund.
Commissioners tabled a request
from Anthony Minichello for in-
stallation of a street light adjacent
to his property, Lot 16, Block 3,
(56) Kelly's Plat, located at the
corner of the 1st Street East and
Berry Avenue, in an effort to stop
vandalism. Commissioners
agreed that it was a dark area.
However Commissioner Buz Put-
nal remarked that the light at the
nearby water plant had not
stopped the siphoning of gas from
city vehicles. Commissioners ap-
proved a light near the home of
Margaret Mathis, located on a dirt
alley.
There was only one bid for work
to install 49 feet of seawall along
the south boundary of Avenue A
South, between Marine Spree and
the Carrabelle river. Commis-
sioner Ginnie Sanborn requested
that the city set specifications and
then readvertise. The solitary bid-
der said that he would leave his
sealed bid in as he "knew it would
exceed the city specifications."
Commissioners approved a vari-
ance from the side set back lines
for an addition to the Christian
Church located on Sandy Road at
the corner of River Road, on the
west side of the Carrabelle River.
The addition will bring the front
of the building closer to River
Road.
A request for a variance from
Vance Millender and Randy
Poteet, to build an ice house in
the flood zone area on what is
commonly known as the 'Old
Flour Dock Property,' was tabled
until the March meeting. Com-
missioners requested that the
principals bring in more informa-
tion and a concept of the proposed
building.
Commissioners decided to re-
quest an extension of the present
contract and franchise with the
Argus Company for collection of
garbage within the city. Franklin
County Clerk Kendall Wade had
requested that the city have the
same date of renewal as the
county. The City of Apalachicola
have changed their garbage col-
lection to another company that
does not use the county landfill
facility.


Risk

Management

Workshop at

School Board

Paula Waller and Pat McDaniel
from the Panhandle Area Educa-
tion Consortium (PAEC) met with
Franklin County School Board
members for a risk-management
workshop on February 1 at
Browne Elementary School.
The workshop focused on fiscal
conservation through safety. Mr.
McDaniel said that his goal for the
upcoming year was to reduce
workers compensation claims by
30%. He stated that 354 claims
had been filed in the last five
years. McDaniel said that overall
costs in claims per year equaled
$1,040,710 and the average cost
of each claim was $2,939. With a
30% reduction, McDaniel said
that $311,534 would be saved.
'That would save dollars going out
the back door," said McDaniel. He
said that both food service and
maintenance positions were criti-
cal areas of concern for expensive
claims. McCartney concluded,
'Think safety, then act safety."

Science Fairs


BAGE




" I HYPOTHESIS


Desiree Quick was named the overall winner of Browne
Elementary's contest with her "Cabbage Color" project.


In the name of science, many of
Franklin County's young minds
set forth to prove a host of com-
plex hypotheses, which werepro-
posed at the four science fairs
eld at Browne Elementary

Is there a link between the qual-
ity of Franklin County's drinking
water and local cases of cancer?
Does lemon juice remove stains
better than bleach? Is tartar con-
trol toothpaste more effective at
cleaning teeth than fluoride tooth-
paste? Does the Carrabelle Sew-
age Treatment System contain
elements of E. Coli bacteria? What
is the difference in pulse rates

Job Fairs Help Meet Local


Employment
The Florida Jobs & Benefits Cen-
ter, in partnership with Haney
Technical Center and the I
Marriott's Bay Point Resort is
sponsoring two upcomingjob fairs
to enable employers and job seek-
ers to network together in a single
location to meet their employment
needs. Employers benefit by hav-
ing the opportunity to meet, in-
terview, and even select potential
employees from a broad cross sec-
tion of job seekers ranging from
young people looking for their first
job to professionals with years of I
experience. Job seekers benefit by
having freedom to network with
numerous employers about em-
ployment opportunities from the
same location in a short period of
time.
The first job fair, hosted by Haney
Technical Center, 3016 Highway
77 in Panama City is scheduled
for February 16, 1996 from 8am
to 2pm. The job fair is free and is
open to the public. Both employ-
ers and job seekers are encour-
aged and invited to participate,
but employers participating must
have vacant positions they intend
to fill in order to participate. Par-
ticipation entitles employers to
one table and two chars reserved
for their company, free parking
and public telephone access, live
media coverage, no restrictions or
guidelines imposed on your selec-
tion of applicants to interview or
recruit from, and free job vacancy
listings through the Florida Jobs
and Benefits Center which pro-
vides state-wide access to all job
seekers.
One week after the first job fair is
a job fair specifically designed to
assist Panama City Beach em-
ployers and those seeking employ-
ment on Panama City Beach to
meet their employment needs.
Hosted by the Marriott's Bay Point
Resort, this job fair will be in the
Marriott's St Andrews Ballroom
located at 100 Delwood Beach
Road in Panama City Beach on
February 23, 1996 from 8am to
3pm. There is a $10.00 entrance
fee for employer participants to
this job fair, but job seekers can
attend at no cost. As with the job
fair on February 16th, the
Panama City Beach Job Fair is
open to the public and employer
participants will be entitled to the
same benefits as those participat-
ing in the job fair on February
16tlrh


Demands
Sponsored each year by the
Florida Jobs and Benefits Center,
WJHG-TV NewsChannel 7, the
Bay County Chamber of Com-
merce, Haney Technical Center,
and the Marriott's Bay Point Re-
sort, the job fairs have proven
successful in the past in helping
employers and job seekers meet
their employment needs. Last
year the two job fairs combined
had over 58 employers from Bay,
Gulf, and Franklin Counties par-
ticipating and they listed over 109
job orders that representing in
excess of 500 vacancies. Over 760
job seekers attended the job fairs
and of those who attended, more
than 175 of them were either of-
fered jobs on the spot or offered
jobs shortly after the job fairs!
Although the exact number of em-
ployer participants is still pend-
ing at this time, over 200 employ-
ers have been invited to partici-
pate, but any employer who has
vacancies they intend to fill are
extended invitations to participate
in either or both of the job fairs.
Space is limited so employers are
encouraged to reserve space now
by contacting John Herndon or
Ken Wilson at the Florida Jobs
and Benefits Center at 872-4340,
extensions 131 or 121. They will
be happy to provide you with all
the details, answer your ques-
tions, and reserve your space.
When calling, be prepared to dis-
cuss your job openings,, qualifi-
cations needed, salaries, and any
special equipment or support you
may need to participate. If you
prefer, simply fax your requests
or information to 904-872-7765
or request a trained job placement
professional visit your business to
work out the details.
If you are unemployed or under-
employed ahd are seeking em-
ployment, thisis an excellent op-
portunity to network with many
of the area's employers to learn
of employment opportunities,
complete employment applica-
tions, obtain interviews, and pos-
sibly obtain ajob on the spot! Job
seekers are encouraged to come
prepared to go to work and should
bring with them their resumes,
job histories, references, tran-
scripts, certifications, licenses,
etc., and any other documenta-
tion that certifies their knowledge
skills. abilites. and expenence


Corrections and
Clarifications:
In the Franklin Chronicle issue of Janu-
ary 12, the article entitled "City Narrowly
Votes to Protect Seafood Dealers Prop-
erty" contained a misrepresentation. The
article mistakenly attributed Grant
writer Willoughby Marshall with a grant
that allegedly targeted the state purchase
of land leased by Bruce Millender. Ac-
cording to Ann Perry of the Community
Trust Grant Department. Mr. Marshall's
grant has nothing to do with the prop-
erty leased by Mr. Millender.
Also, in the January 26 issue, an article
entitled "County Concerns Addressed at
Legislature Delegation Meeting" con-
tained two misleading statements. The
article leads readers to believe that Mr.
Williams brought up the matter of in-
vestigative fees. He did not. Williams
commented on the issue after County
Clerk Kendall Wade asked him a ques-
tion. Furthermore, in Williams' request
for a full time probation officer, the
Chronicle did not point out that his re-
quest was for a state and not a county
probation officer. The Franklin Chronicle
regrets such confusion to the reader for
these mistakes.

Franklin Scores Low in

College Prep


The results of the 1994-95 col-
lege-entry level placement tests
have shown that the Franklin
county district test-takers scored
less that 40 percent in math, writ-
ing and reading, on average. The
test results, released Friday, Feb-
ruary 2, 1996 by Education Com-
missioner Frank T. Brogan, are
based on exams given to students
in community colleges and first
year university students who at-
tended high school in the previ-
ous year. These exams are given
to determine if remedial (college
preparatory) coursework is nec-
essary before tackling college-level
work.
The percentage of Florida commu-
nity college students ready for
college edged up in 1994-95, while
the percentage of university stu-
dents prepared declined slightly,
according to the Readiness for
College Report.
Commissioner Brogan released
the results of the 1994-95 report,
which contains the results of the
college entry-level placement tests
of first-time college students in
Florida public community colleges
and state universities who gradu-
ated from a Florida public high
school during the previous year.
The percentage of community col-
lege students prepared for college
improved from 41.1 percent in
1993-94 to 42.6 percent in 1994-
95. The readiness of state univer-
sity students declined from 92.2
percent in 1993-94 to 90.4 per-
cent in 1994-95.
"This reinforces the needs for re-
form efforts that reinforced pub-
lic education on the basics and
strong accountability measures,"
Brogan said.


All first-time degree-seeking stu-
dents entering one of Florida's
community colleges or state uni-
versities are required to take one
of several college entry-level place-
ment tests to measure proficiency
in the area of reading, writing and
mathematics. Any student who
scores below the cut score in any
one of the three areas must take
college preparatory courses in
that area before taking a college-
level course in the subject area.
Statewide for both community
colleges and universities, student
readiness has declined slightly
each of the past four years. In
1991-92, 60 percent were ready.
This number dropped to 58.4 per-
cent in 1992-93, to 57.8 percent
in 1993-94 and to 57.1 percent
in 1994-95.
Statewide, math readiness was up
from 69.7 percent in 1993-94 to
70.2 percent in 1994-95. Commu-
nity college math readiness was
up from 56.8 percent in 1993-94
to 59.3 percent in 1994-95. Writ-
ing readiness was down from 77.6
percent in 1993-94 to 76.3 per-
cent in 1994-95. For reading, the
percentage of students ready for
college declined slightly from 77.7
percent in 1993-94 to 76.3 in
1994-95.
The Readiness for College Report
is used by school advisory coun-
cils to update school improvement
plans annually and by the schools
to adjust curriculum, instruction,
assessment and counseling of
students.


Museum of

Florida History

Acquires 1842

Lithograph of

Seminole Leader

The Museum of Florida History
recently acquired an outstanding
print of Seminole Leader, Tulcee
Mathla. This acquisition com-
pleted the Museum's collection of
bust portraits from the
McKenney-Hall series of Native
American lithographs. Six of the
highly prized Seminole portraits
are now on exhibit in the'main
gallery.
The first oil paintings for these
lithographs were commissioned in
1821 by Thomas L. McKenney,
Superintendent of Indian Affairs,
who wanted to collect the life por-
traits of Native American del-
egates visiting Washington. In the
next two decades over 120 por-
traits were painted, mostly by
Charles Bird King. King also
painted Tulcee Mathla's portrait
in oils, the original of which is
owned by the Lowe Art Museum
in Coral Gables.
The Museum also has four bust
portraits of Creek Indian leaders
who came to Florida in the 1830s
and 40s to assist the United
States Government in its efforts
to remove the Seminole people.
Only two full length portraits of
Osceola and Tuskosee Mathia and
a three quarter length print of
Billy Bowlegs remain to be col-
lected by the Museum of Florida
History.


Readiness for College 1994-95

Summary
The average performance of graduates reported in the Readiness for College Report for 1994-95 is
based on a cohort of graduates who enrolled as degree seeking students within the first twelve months
after graduation from high school. Average performance for each school and district and for the state
as a whole is determined from data on 1993-94 graduates who enrolled in Florida public community
colleges and state universities as degree seeking students during the 1994-95 academic year. The.
average performance of graduates is calculated by dividing the number of graduates having scores
above the cut-scores on a college entry-level test by the total number of test takers who were enrolled
in a Florida public community college or state university. Test data for students who did not enroll as
degree seeking students at a Florida public community college or state university within 12 months
following graduation are not available and are not included in the reported cohort of graduates. While
this report is not a comprehensive report on the performance of all high school graduates, it does
provide a means by which a school or district can compare its current year performance averages with
previous year performance and with other high schools, school districts, and the state as a whole.
The school districts with more than 70.0% of their testtakers ready in all areas are Citrus, Holmes.
Martin, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Sarasota, Seminole, Suwanee, and the University of Florida Lab School.
The school districts with less than 40.0% ready in all areas are Dade, Desoto, Franklin, Glades,
Liberty, and Madison.
Comparison of the Readiness for College Report for 1994-95 with the report for 1993-94 reveals that
the overall performance of graduates on the entry-level placement tests has declined slightly. Of the
graduates entering the community colleges and state universities during the 1993-94 academic year,
57.8% were ready for college level study in all areas (mathematics, writing, and reading), while in
1994-95, 57.1% were ready in all areas.
Performance remains lower in mathematics than in writing and reading. Performance in mathematics
increased by 0.5%, while performance in writing and reading decreased by 1.3% and 1.4% respec-
tively.
Graduates enrolled in state universities declined in mathematics, writing, reading, and in all three
areas. Graduates enrolled in community colleges improved performance in mathematics and in all
three area, but declined in performance in writing and reading.

Building Violations,
continued from page 1
Commissioner Putnal said that he
had no problem with having the
building being brought into com-
pliance. However, he stated,
"You're bringing up stuif that hap-
pened 15 or 20 years ago." He
noted that the facility seemed to
be an improvement to what pre-
viously existed.
Mr. Fredricks said that Ms.
Short's wanted to break a lease
that he. held on the back of her
property. "And what is up right
now is her trying to get this lease
broken, so she can get her prop-
erty back."
Sandra Thaxton said that county
building ordinances needed to be
enforced or totally repealed. "I feel
foolish coming to you and getting
variances and paying my one
hundred dollars and getting that
variance. If you don't enforce
these ordinances, I'm gonna' start
building in the setback. Why
should I be in compliance? Why
should anybody be in compli-
ance?" Ms. Thaxton said that
Buddy Fredricks was a builder
and knew that he needed a vari-
ance.
Commissioner Braxton then
made a motion to have Mr.
Fredricks remove his stairs.
"Who's gonna move them?" asked
Commissioner Tolliver, "If you or-
dered me to move them, I wouldn't
move them. I'd let you come over
and move them."
Commissioner Braxton said that
the county may face a lawsuit if it
isn't consistent in enforcing such
ordinances.
"Well, this is a unique county,"
replied Tolliver.
The board then voted 3-2 (Com-
missioners Tolliver and Putnal
voting nay) to order Mr. Fredricks
to remove his stairs.

Two veterans of Camp Gordon Johnston, who are members of
the planning team for the 44-passenger bus tour, knew each other
at Camp Gordon Johnston when U. S. Army troops arrived there
for amphibious training. Jim Beadnell of Tallahassee was a train-
ing specialist operating out of Camp Bell (left), and Jim Fling of
Tallahassee trained in harbor craft, later moving into adminis-
tration and battalion and regimental levels. In 1946 Fling helped
close the camp. Beadnell and Fling provided a unique set of an-
ecdotes about life at the camp, which will be incorporated into
the running narrative on the bus tour.

ANNUAL REUNION

O CALL 904-697-2585

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


On Sunday, February 4, the reunion planners traced the route
for the bus tour of the former 155.000 acre Camp Gordon
Johnston, starting at the site of the former Camp Bell. Dozens of
sites and stops will be included in the tour including Harbeson
City, life guard training site, where the old piers are still visible.
First Combat Team training site, the Parade Field and rail head
near Lanark Village, and many others.
Most of the background information for this piece is drawn from
an article by David J. Coles in Florida Historical Quarterly (July
1994) Volume LXXII]. No. 1. Once finished, the camp stretched
for about 20 miles along the Gulf coast between St. George Is-
land, Carrabelle and Alligator Point. This included the villages of
Lanark and St. Teresa. Camp Gordon Johnston was actually made
up of four separate camps three for the regimental combat teams
and a fourth for Post headquarters, support facilities and other
units. Pilots used Alligator Point, on the camp's eastern bound-
ary, as an aerial gunnery area. To the west, Dog and St. George
Islands were used to stage amphibious landings and airborne
drops. First troops arrived at the camp for training on Septem-
ber 10, 1942. In January 1943. the camp became officially known
as Camp Gordon Johnston, named after a distinguished cavalry
officer of the late 19th and early 20th century. The camp itself
was soon known as "Hell-by-the Sea," due to the rain, mud,
swamps, lizards, chiggers, wild hogs, deer, flies, mosquitoes, sand
fleas and wilderness.


There are three phases involved mi the malin ol a Hamilton braided
mru. The Iirst- in\-olves spinning the yarn. usually cotton. sometimes
mLked with synthetic polyester. using about 20 strands ol matenal
spun into braiding maternal.
Here Joe often takes charge of this operation while Mary Beth works
,,ut front. tending to the buvyi g- public and other chores The shop
produces custom rugs in a \anety of shapes and colors. Most ol their
yarn is purchased from LaFrance. North Carolina

In the second phase, A bobbin is placed on the rewinder by Joe in the
braiding room. When the bobbins are filled, these are threaded, five
at a time, into the braiding machine. Two bobbins on the bottom act
as the core of the braiding process, with three molded with the others
as the braid is made by the circling arms.
In the third phase, Mary Beth takes the braid, delivered to her in
large baskets, and sews them together using strong nylon
monofilament from Shakespeare, a producer of fishing line. The ma-
terial is clear, and very strong. The braid is sewn- in tight stitching, in
this example, on top of the sewing table. Joe designed the table to
include a series of air holes, to enable Mary Beth to move a large rug
sewn into the overall pattern. The air holes emit an air stream from a
pump system underneath the table, which slightly levitates the en-
tire large rug, enabling Mary Beth to rotate the rug easily as the braid
is sewn into the enlarging'rug.

To illustrate the differences between a Hamilton product and mass
produced rugs often available at large discount stores, Mary Beth cut
up a commercial rug. She discovered that the "braids" are not really
braids at all, but yarn or other material stuffed into a plastic tube
which is then sewn into the rug. The "stuffing" is often ordinary pa-
per, not yarn, with the advice to "dry clean" the rug. This particular
example rug using these cheap, mass-produced processes, cost her
$7. Close inspection of the sewn rug revealed wide spaces between
the stitches. A visitor to her shop will see more differences in the
quality of the Hamilton rugs. Continued on page 8

Even though Joe Hamilton tends to his engineering duties at the
county level by day, Mary Beth related, "In the evenings he'll come
down and make some braid. And, on Saturdays, he works with me,
here making brad. unless it's real 4ood Ilying weather. And. then I

Some of Ms. Halstrom's.project
goals include the creation of a
TEENSPEAK magazine to give
those participants a "voice" in
their community.
Halstrom also looks forward to
introducing the program's stu-

as drawing and mural painting.
"Art is a creative outlet for the ex-
pression of ideas, instead of vio-
lence," said Halstrom., "Violence
will be one of the biggest issues
that we'll be focusing on. It's
something that obviously needs to
be addressed."
