Estuaries' Day 2000 September- 29

Offers Special Events

S -- --- ---- a


Woody Miley, Manager of the Apalachicola Research
Reserve, looks over a draft of their Management Plan (1998-
2003).


By Tom Campbell.
With the theme "Cradles of the Ocean," Estuaries' Day 2000 offers a
pleasure-filled schedule of events at Apalachicola's National Estua-
rine'Research Reserve at 261 Seventh Street in Apalachicola, Friday,
September 29, 2000.
The Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve is the largest
of 25 sites designated as Reserves by the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration (NOAA). The Research Reserve was established
through the 1972 Coastal Zone Management Act passed by Congress,
in which Congress officially recognized that resources of the coastal
zones were ofnational significance, and were rapidly disappearing.
The mission of the Reserve program is to provide opportunities for
long-term research, education and interpretation. Apalachicola and
Franklin County are, indeed, fortunate to be a site of the largest Na-
tional Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) system in the nation, mea-
suring well over 246,000 acres.
The habitats include forested flood plains, open water, oyster bars,
salt marshes, barrier islands and freshwater marshes.
There are 315 species of birds, over 180 species of fresh, estuarine
and saltwater fish, and 57 species of mammals. The highest species
diversity of amphibians and reptiles in North America north of Mexico
has also been listed from the Apalachicola River basin.
Education activities include scheduled education programs for groups
(on-site and outreach), Natural history field trips, classroom estua-
rine curricula and Interpretive facilities for the general public.
A specialty of the area is protection for threatened sea turtle and
migratory bird nest protection, and monitoring programs.
Events Schedule for Estuaries' Day 2000 on September 29, from 3
p.m. to 7 p.m.. include:


3 to 5 p.m.
4 to 5 p.m.
4 to 5 p.m.
4 to 6 p.m.
5 to 5:30 p.m.
5:30 to 6 p.m.
6 to 7 p.m.


Video presentations, Fish Feedings;
refreshments;
Estuary boat tours;
Sidewalk Art Contest, Nature Walk & Scavenger Hunt;
Keynote Speaker;
Door Prizes;
Guided Nature Walk Tours.


This promises to be a fun and educational day for children, adults
and families. Director Woody Miley and his staff will be happy to an-
swer questions. Phone 850-653-8063.

New Carrabelle
Library Design
Now On View
By Tom Campbeli
Franklin County Planner Alan
Pierce said that he has the new
designs for the Carrabelle Branch
Library now in his office. He said
he had announced to the county
commissioners that "they can
come in and look at them any
time."
The design was done by architect
Greg Kelley with the Clemons
Rutherford and Associates, Inc. in
Tallahassee.
The designs show, among other
things, a Multi-Purpose Youth
Area, a Work Area/Kitchenette, a
Workroom, Circulation Desk,
General Stack and Multi-Purpose
Area, Computer Area, Extensive

Stacks Area, Main Lobby and the
Lighthouse Room.
Architect Greg Kelley, who did the
designs, said, "We wanted to de-
sign to fit in with the Carrabelle
community. Also, we would like
the new library to be a beacon to
the community, and that's why we
put the lighthouse room in the
design."
It would appear that the light-
house room offers space for art
exhibits and other such educa-
tional exhibits. Of course, it also
brings to mind the fact that Car-
rabelle is home to the Crooked
River Lighthouse, and also the
Carrabelle Lighthouse Associa-
tion.
The next step for the progress of
the design is awaiting approval of
the design by the Franklin County
Board of Commissioners. The
state has already approved the
design. If the commissioners ap-
prove the design, then the next
step will be to approve the bids
for contractors. According to the
state schedule of events, the de-
signs should be approved and
ready to move forward by the end
of the month of September, 2000.

of Eastpoint. The Defendant Tho-
mas V. Novak pleaded Guilty in
this case on May 16, 2000, pur-
suant to a plea agreement.

"this case on May 16, 2000, pur-
suant to a Plea Agreement.

beginning in 1996 and continu-
ing through the trial of his
co-defendants, which was held
beginning July 5, 2000.
* 3-The prosecutor handling this
case since August 22, 1996,
through the trial has been U.S.
Attorney Randy Hensel.
* 4-Mr. Hensel will not be avail-

ing report authored by the Fed-
eral Probation Officer is currently
under review by the prosecution
and defense attorneys, and will be
used by Judge Hinkle as a basis
for determining the sentences.
The report is not a public docu-
ment. If there are any appeals
these would be filed following im-
position of the sentences.


School Board Increases Tax Levy
At the September 7th meeting of the School Board meeting held at
Chapman Elementary, Apalachicola, the Board increased the tax levy
to $6,260,153, an increase of $368,242 over the previous year.
A portion of the' levy was required under state law in order for the
board to receive state education grants totaling $3,082,196.
The millage levy is now 7.5370. A 1.00 mill increase was approved for
capital outlay projects including (1) Construction and Remodeling at
all district sites; (2) Futtre land purchases; (3) Maintenance, Renova-
tion and Repair including the replacement of fire alarm systems, pave-
ment projects, repair or replacement of locks, doors and windows,

a handicap elevator at the district office, heating cooling units in all
gymnasiums, band instruments', portable and storage buildings, and
purchase of food service equipment; (6) Payments for educational fa-
cilities due under a lease purchase agreement, and (7) Payments for
the costs of complying with environmental statutes and regulations,
such as the removal of hazardous waste.
The breakdown of the millage levy is as follows:
Operating


Local Required
Discretionary
Supplemental
Capital Outlay


5.9430
0.5100
0.0930
1.000


Total Millage 7.5370


The capital outlay tax will generate about $787,800.
The approved operating budget expenditures of the Board are 7.3
percent higher than last year's total operating expenditures.


Carrabelle City

Budget Moving
Toward Approval
The Carrabelle City meeting held
on Labor Day evening involved a
review but not a finalization of the
Fiscal Year 2000 budget (October
01, 2000 September 30, 2001)
The special meeting, scheduled
for September 18th, will be the
second and final public hearing
to finalize the budget and adopt a
millage rate.
The City will first receive com-
ments from the public on the pro-
posed village over the rolled-back
rate necessary to fund the bud-
get, and to ask any questions
prior to adoption of any measures
by the City. The City shall first
adopt the millage rate prior to
adopting the final budget. The
millage rate adopted at the final
budget hearing cannot exceed the
rate tentatively adopted at the first
hearing.
At present, the proposed millage
rate is 8 mills per $1000 of as-,
,sessed valuation, a rate 2.44%
more than the rolled back rate
(which is 7.0892 mills per $1000.)
Under the budget proposal, the
proposed operating budget expen-
ditures of Carrabelle City are
22.99% more than last years to-
tal of operating expenditures. At
present, the total appropriated
expenditures and reserves is
$1,229,480.


Power Of The Kick Wins


By Jimmy Elliott
September 8, 2000, the Apalachi-
cola High School Sharks, hosted
their first home game against the
Tigers of Blountstown and the
game was a thriller.
The Tigers won the toss and
elected to receive. The ball was
taken at the ten and returned to
the Tiger 30 yard line.
The Tigers struck immediately on
a long pass that burnt the Shark
defender, but a flag on the play
took the touchdown off the
scoreboard. Two more plays after
the penalty and the Tigers punted
to the Sharks.
The ball was returned to the
Blountstown 40 yard line and the
Sharks took little time to score.
One first down #29 Lance Roch-
elle, carried for six yards followed
by #34 Willie McNair who ripped
off a 15 yard run. The next play
had Willie McNair taken it for the
Shark T.D. from 25 yards out.


The Sharks elected not to kick the
extra point and the two point con-
version try failed. #5 Adam
Youngblood, kicked off for the
Sharks and the ball carried into
the end zone for a touch back.
Starting from their own 20 yard
line, the Tigers seemed stopped
after three unsuccessful plays but
the Shark defense was flagged 15
yards for ruffing the passer, which
gave the Tigers a first down at the
Blountstown 40 yard line. On first
and ten the Tigers turned it over
to the Shark defense on a fumble
a the 40 yard line.
#44 Leon O'Neal smashed
through the middle for eight yards
to start the Shark drive. Three
plays later #33 Kit Mashburn
swept left as #2 Bernard Simmons
delivered a big block and the
Sharks gained another 8 yards.
The Shark drive fizzled out at the
Tiger 25 yard line and on fourth
down and seven kicker #5 Adam

Over 200

Attend WMS

Water Rate

Hearings

By Tom Campbell
Over 200 people attended the
Florida Public Service Commis-
sion limited proceeding at the
Franklin County Courthouse in
Apalachicola on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 12. Water Management
Services, Inc. (WMS), a water com-
pany serving approximately 1,460
customers on St. George Island in
Franklin County, had requested
a limited proceeding to increase
water rates. This increase would
allow it to cover the cost of build-
ing a new water transmission line
connecting its wells to its service
territory on St. George Island.
A new bridge to St. George Island
is to be built by the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
(DOT), and the old bridge is to be
torn down, along with the pipes
on the structure that transmit
water to the island. The in-service
date of the new bridge is expected
to be March 2003. WMS will have
to make alternative arrangements
to provide service to its certified
service area.
The utility's position sets forth its
plan to construct a new main to
be attached to the new bridge,
along with related modifications
to its System, and wants to in-
crease its rates in order to pro-
vide funding for the proposed con-
struction.
WMSI has requested the rate in-
crease be implemented in three
phases:
Phase I-would become effective
November 1, 2000, and would re-
cover the engineering estimate of
$880,803, as well as the projected
costs of financing. Overall, this
would represent a rate increase
of 20.84 percent over current
rates.
Phase 2-would become effective
January 1, 2002, and would re-
cover capital expenditures

County Commission
Meeting of
September 18, 2000
County Extension Director Bill
Mahan informed the Board that
the Vibrio vulnificus Risk Man-
agement group met in Tallahas-
see in early September to start
work on developing a draft man-
agement plan. A draft has been
developed and is currently under
review by the working group.


Alan Pierce


Alan Pierce, County Planner,
moderated a transmittal hearing
dealing, with St. James Bay
project. The hearing is to trans-
mit to the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs (DCA) the county's
intention to change the land use
on the St. James project 378 acres
from Public Facilities to
Mixed-Use Residential. Pierce ad-
vised Commissioners that DCA
would review the proposal, along
with relevant information from
the DRI process and make a rec-
ommendation back to the county.
After receiving, the DCA recom-
mendation for the proposed land
use, and the DCA recommenda-
tion on the DRI, the county will
hold an adoption hearing to con-
sider adopting the land use and
'the DRI. This would likely occur
in the second County Commission
meeting in November 2000.
The Board approved a proposed
layout of a soccer field at Ned Por-
ter Park that could be constructed
with in-house labor and materi-
als. Pierce reported that the field
is eagerly sought by Donnie Wil-
son and Hap Greff, the new Meth-
odist Minister in Apalachicola who
is trying to organize socer in that
part of Franklin County
The Board approved a Resolu ton
supporting the purchase of about.
20 acres of Carrabelle land for a
park. They also amended the
county's capital improvement el-
ement of the comprehensive plan
to show the need for a park. The
plan will reflect that $75,000 has
been earmarked for land acquisi-
tion but that amount, minus a.
local match, will come from the
FRDAP program.
Mr. Pierce presented the Board a
copy of the agreement he signed
after the September 5th meeting
with, the Let the Children Play
Foundation for the use of an ap-
proximately 50 by 160 foot area
on county property for a children's
playground.
The Board approved the adoption
of the 1996 Comprehensive Emer-
gency Management Plan in order
to continue receiving DEM funds.
Due to time constraints, Tim


Turner and Alan Pierce asKea the
Board to approve adopting the
earlier plan in order to stay in
compliance with state Division of
Emergency Management Rules.
The Board approved an interlocal
agreement between Gulf and
Franklin County to cover a 90-day
window between October 5 and
January 5, 2001 for the purposes
of having a licensed building offi-
cial, available.
Mr. Robin Brinkley, Franklin
County Building Official, has a
provisional license. It expires Oc-
tober 5. Robin and Alan Pierce
went to St. Augustine last week
expecting to get an extension be-
cause he is scheduled to retake
the Building Official test in No-
vember. On a 33 vote the state li-
censing board refused to grant the
extension. The Board was swayed
by its attorney who repeatedly
argued that Robin could not get
an extension because he was
granted a two year license and
some section of Florida law does
not allow him to apply for an ex-
tension. The Chairwoman of the
licensing board argued in our fa-
vor saying that just this past leg-
islature the law had been changed
to allow provisional licenses to be
granted for three to five years be-
cause so many small counties
were unable to meet the two year
dead line. The lawyer would not
budge, saying that while the law
had been changed, the change did
not apply to Robin because he had
applied for his license when the
law only allowed two years.
Pierce has met with the Gulf
County Administrator Don But-
ler, and Gulf County Building Of-
ficial Michael Hammond; and they
are willing to work with us, so long
as Franklin County holds Gulf
County harmless from any claims
arising from inspections done
during this period. Upon discuss-
ing the situation with the state,
the following action by Franklin
County Commission will keep the
Franklin County Building and
Planning Department functioning
thesame: The Board needs to rec-
ognize that Robin Brinkley will
apply for a provisional license as
a I and 2 dwelling inspector- this
will allow, him to continue doing
most of the inspections he is cur-
rently doing; Rachel Ward is rec-
ognized as applying for a provi-
sional plans examiner license, for
which she has already taken the
test, but has not received her.
score. As provisional plans exam-
iner, by state law she is autho-.
rized to sign building permits for
residential construction. She will
also apply for a provisional build-
ing inspector license, which she
has intended on getting anyway,
and this will allow her to issue
commercial building permits.
Under this scenario, Mr.
Hammond will not actually be
needed to do any inspections, but
he will be:available for consulta-
tion'and inspection ifeilther Robin
arid Rachel need him, and Robin
and Rachel will be operating un-
der his license.
Without this scenario being ap-
proved by the Board, come Oct.
5, Franklin County will-not be
able to issue any building permits
or do any inspections. Board ac-
tion to approve the position titles
for Robin and Rachel and approve
the interlocal agreement contin-
gent upon Mr. Shuler reviewing
it, as Gulf County is currently
drafting it.
On September 12, the Planning
and Zoning Commission met in
regular session and recom-
mended the following action:
a) on development in the Critical
Shoreline-
* recommend approval for Jeanne
Bonds to construct a boardwalk

land on a larger scale to make it
easier to document the zoning on
individual lots. Mr. Mark
Curenton made this request.
h) the Commission recommends
the Board determine there to be
a scrivener's error on property
west ofApalachicola, in the Tilton
area. Mr. Mark Curenton made
this request after reviewing the
map against the actual legal de-
scription of the property involved.
The Board approved the above
recommendations.
Hunting
Local hunters appeared before the
Board to ask for a return to pre-
vious hunting seasons for doves
on little St. George Island, and

Eastpoint, FL 32328
Dear Friends:
You may not be aware that, Big Bend Hospice is building a "Hospice
House" to care for patients with a terminal illness who want Hospice
care but cannot remain in their own homes. Although over $1,500,000
has been raised for the construction, an additional $250,000 is needed
to furnish and equip the twelve-bedroom house. With less than two
months remaining until the building is complete, time is running out
to make the Hospice House a reality.
The Big Bend Hospice Advisory Council of Franklin County has com-
mitted to raise $10,000 to help pay for a room dedicated to the citi-
zens of Franklin County in memory of Susan Russell. This room will
be available to any patient from Franklin County who lives alone, has
no primary caregiver, whose spouse or caregiver is unable to provide
the care that is needed or needs respite from the full time responsi-
bilities for caring for their loved one.
At Hospice, we believe that no one should die alone or without the
care they need. The Hospice House will be a warm place to live com-
fortably, with dignity, privacy and to die peacefully. We urge you,
your family, business, employees and clients to pledge your support
to this vital project that will directly benefit the citizens of Franklin
County. Gifts of any size are welcome ... A total of $2,400 has already
been collected.
If you would like more information about the project, please call any
member of the Advisory Council or Leonia Webster at 878-5310. Thank
you very much for your consideration and support of quality Hospice
care.

Disguised As A Social Hour, Are Cited

By Wakulla Fisherman's Association

Publisher's Note: At the Federal Level of Administrative regula-
tion, "informal" social contacts between regulating agencies and
the entities "regulated" are not an unusual oc urrence Frr ex-
ample, at the annual National Association ofBroadcasters meet-
ing, representatives of the Federal Communications Commission,
and staff, are often attending the national meeting of broadcast-
ers and associated interests. These contacts, years ago, were
dubbed "Ex parte contacts" in which only one side of any par-
ticular issues that might be discussed, and were eventually ruled
illegal by the FCC, especially if evidence were shown that the
contacts were influential on FCC decisions. The Wakulla
Fisherman's Association has now shown that similar social con-
tacts are continuing to operate at the Florida "level", with consid-
erable opportunity to influence the regulating agency on various
issues at opportune time. Yet, as Mr. Crum points out, when they
officially appear before the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission, they and others who want to present their views,
are limited to the usual three-minute time frame.
There appears to be a basic unfairness to this process. It would
appear the responsible party permitting these ex parte contacts
is the Chairperson of the Commission itself, Dr. Egbert, recently
cited for not having anything on the hard drives of his office com-
puters.

Letter To The Editor
August 30, 2000, the Fishermen once again centered their attention
on the Circuit Court of the Second Judicial Circuit, in and for Wakulla
County, Florida and the Florida Supreme Court. August 30"', the 1st
District Court of Appeals denied the State's motion for Petition for
Writ of Certiorari-original jurisdiction, reviewing Judge Sauls' deni-
als of the State's motion to dismiss original filed by The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission in 1999. This case began in
1996-with a Declaratory Judgement request for a legal, viable net
within the limitation of the Florida Constitution.
Almost five years of motions to dismiss, the MFC/FWCC has denied
the Fishermen the Florida Supreme Court. In 1995 the Fishermen
filed a declaratory Judgement on legal shrimp nets with the Circuit
Court of the Second Judicial Circuit in and for Franklin County. The
Fishermen prevailed and were upheld by the Florida Supreme Court
by.
Jy anuary 1996, we thought the answer to a viable rectangular 500
sq. ft. not was simple; file a case just as we had on the shrimp nets.
We did not take into consideration that we had shown the MFC that
we could prevail with the Florida'Supreme Court. We also didn't un-
derstand the prejudice against the Fishermen by the MFC/FWCC. A
case that should have been completed in twelve months has taken
Over four years. Will the FWCC attempt to block the Fishermen from
the Florida Supreme Court by filing another motion to dismiss?
The Fishermen took their request for justice to Washington with a
civil rights complaint in 1999 with the United States Department of
Justice, Americans with Disabilities Act 1990. The Fishermen are
continuing with Case 97-271, trying to get relief with the Florida Su-
preme Court. With these two attempts and one that will be released
in the near future, we feel that discrimination born out of prejudice
by the MFC will be removed from our government.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is the best
resource management for the rich that money can buy. When we
attend FWCC meetings we are given three minutes to identify our-
selves and present our issue.
Let me share with you the treatment of our competition. A memo
from Victor J. Heller, Assistant Executive Director FWCC, Subject,
Commission meeting Pensacola, May 2, 2000. (1) On Wednesday
evening, the Commission and Staff have been invited to a reception
hosted by J,C. Bradford & Company (2) On Thursday evening, the
Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club and Pensacola Recreational Fish-
ing Association will hold a reception for the Commission and Staff.
These receptions allow three hours for the FWCC staff and Commis-
sioners to got to know the wealthy special interest "'in a informal
relaxed atmosphere", There is no Sunshine Law consideration at the
FWCC and it is the best management big money can buy.
These issues have been presented to the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
The Department of Justice/Department of Interior is working on the
civil rights violation. We are once again on the path to the Florida
Supreme Court and we will make another attempt this week to re-
move prejudice and discrimination from the FWCC.

With regard to the increased dues to the membership, the copy should
have read, as follows:
At the July Board meeting, wheh the budget was approved, opposi-
tion to dues increases were voiced by Charles Manos and Diane
Fowlkes. Karen MacFarland, who had campaigned for a Board seat
much earlier, and stated in her promotional materials THAT SHE
WOULD NOT VOTE FOR FURTHER DUES INCREASES, did in fact
vote FOR the dues increases along and with Richard Plessinger, Rick
Watson, and Mollie (Amalia) Read. Dan Sumner was absent from this

Dear Edwin:
Thank you for bringing to our attention that you, and the other
Commissioners of the Florida Game and Wildlife Commission will
be meeting in Pensacola in late May. I have talked to Doc Ely and
we would like to propose that you and the other Commissioners
and staff allow us to host your group at an informal reception
from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Grand Lagoon Yacht Club
located at 10653 Gulf Beach Highway, Pensacola, FL. We plan on
heavy hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar.
The event will be jointly hosted by the Pensacola Big Game Fish-
ing Club and the Pensacola Recreational Fishing Association. I
believe that this would be a great opportunity for you and the
other members of the commission to meet most of the serious
fishermen in our area in both the offshore categories and bottom
fishing categories in an informal relaxed atmosphere.
Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to hearing
from you at your earliest convenience.
Sincerely,
C.W. Haskell, Jr.

Editorial and Commentary


Honor Volunteers from Page 3

Awards were then given, first, to Tim Turner as Rookie of the Year,
Loraine Browne, for Dedication; Erline Hall for Years of Service; Don
Banta as Volunteer of the Year. A Five Year Pin was given to Winona
Barber. The Courage Award was given to Mary Whittington (Lanier).
Shiela Jackson addressed the group on the Program of Work at the
Unit. The Guest Speaker was Tom Loughridge, whose remarks were
as follows:
When someone walks up to me and asks, "How are you,
Tom?" I like to answer, "Outstanding ... but I'm improv-
ing." Sadly, I can't claim authorship for that phrase. That
honor goes to Zig Zigler. The sentiment, however, is clearly
my own.
I have not arrived at this place in my life without deep
thought, a lot of prayer and much guidance from my fam-
ily and friends, not least of whom is my God. I had a
pretty rocky beginning in my acceptance of a life with
cancer. Most of you are here this evening because of an
experience with cancer, either your own or that of friends
who are dear to you or family members who are strug-
gling with this frightening challenge and you're here
searching for ways to help them.
Now, a diagnosis of cancer is a genuinely traumatic ex-
perience. I was called to the telephone while I was teach-
ing my science class at Apalachicola High School. When
I lifted the receiver and identified myself, I was informed
by my doctor that the tumors in my liverwere carcinoid,
inoperable and terminal. My natural reaction was, "Oh,
my God, I am going to die"! I felt my legs and back go
rubbery and I had to clutch at the counter to keep from
falling. Someone brought me a chair and I sat there for a
short while feeling sorry for myself.
So many people, when told that they have cancer, say to
themselves, "Oh! It's time to die now. I'll go home, say
goodbye, sit in a comfortable chair and wait for death to
come." In Zorba The Greek, however, Zorba speaks, "They
say that age kills the fire in a man, that he hears Death
coming. He opens the door and says, 'Come in. Give me
rest'. That is a pack of damn lies! I've got enough fire in
me to devour the world. So, I fight!"
This, then, has become my opportunity to experience life
in a whole new way. I sat in that chair and grappled with
the idea of death and I do not intend to give in to it with
depression or fear. This is my chance, my second chance,
if you will, to make up for wasted time. I will NOT die for
this is my chance to make up for wasted time and to do
all those exciting things I had planned to do but didn't
have time for and to REALLY do the things that are await-
ing me in that wonderful new future that I have given
myself.
Since that time, I have worked to change the way I expe-
rience my world. The space in which I live has gained
color, vitality and excitement. I am actually feeling better
and stronger and happier than I have felt in a long time.
Furthermore I recognize that life is not necessarily ugly
because I have an obnoxious disease. My life is beautiful
BECAUSE I am alive! My love toward my family has deep'
ened and become more tender Because I realize that I
could have lost my chances to say, "I love you" several
times a day and I might not have had the opportunities
to bestow those hugs and touches at unexpected occa-
sions. The leaves are greener, the sky is bluer, birdsong
in the morning is a new glory, and life is a marvel that
God has planned just for me.
Four years ago I was advised that I might live another
two years. Later I was told that it could be as long as
twenty. I am 65 years old now and I intend to live an-
other thirty.
For those who, like me, are cancer survivors or who might
be struggling with the knowledge that your life might be
shortened because of cancer, see your doctors, take your
treatments; but also LIVE, LOVE, and PRAY. Then, even
if your life should be shortened, it will be more beautiful
than you can imagine and when your time comes to walk
with God, you will be ready.
Let me leave you now with these words of Franz Kafka:
You do not need to leave your room
remain sitting at your table
and listen, simply wait.
Do not even wait,
Be quite still and solitary.
The world will
Freely offer itself to you
to be unmasked,
it has no choice,
It will roll in ecstasy
at your feet.

new Board of Directors, as follows:

Loraine Browne, Vice-President

Don Banta, as new President for 2000-2001 made some remarks,
followed by a tribute to the late Elizabeth Shiver by Brenda Coulter,
with special music by Beverly Sapp and Roger Mathis. Two other
tributes were contributed to this article, and are reprinted below.

A Person With Courage
On August 18, 2000 Franklin County lost a dear loved
person. Elizabeth Shiver was known by several names. A
lot of people called her Mama Liz, Aunt Liz, or Mama
Shiver.
In Elizabeth Shiver's life she put God first, family sec-
ond, then came her church and her community.
Mama Shiver was involved with the American Red Cross,
Ladies Auxiliary of the Eastpoint Fire Department, Sal-
vation Army, Franklin County Food Bank, and The Ameri-
can Cancer Society-Franklin Unit.
In 1999, Mama Shiver received the American Cancer
Society Courage Award. Mama Shiver received this award
for showing her strength, courage, and determination
during her battle against cancer. Mama Shiver always
had a smile on the face and had a positive attitude no
matter how down she was. Mama Shiver would always
say "Keep the Faith".
During her battle, she had the ability to lead a normal
life. She worked at Weems Hospital and then worked at
the Franklin County Health Department as the School
Nurse. Mama Shiver was Team Captain for the Love your
Team for the American Cancer Society-Franklin County
Unit.
Mama Shiver'will be missed by all people in Franklin
County.

the Church of God, at that time it was a small congrega-
tion. It took lots of love, dedication and work to make the
Church grow. She was faithful.
Mrs. Mamie Brown taught Elizabeth to play piano. She
played and led the singing many years. Three girls: Eliza-
beth Shiver, Murl Odom and Frances Hicks sang together
since they were young girls. They sang at funerals, reviv-
als and many other events. Singing was her great love.
She was a prayer warrior, she had a deep love for God
and family, no problem was too small for her to take to
the Lord in prayer.
Elizabeth married young-to Hubert Shiver. She returned
to school to earn her GED so she could work as a nurse.
She loved her work for she was helping people.
She was interested in the welfare of this county.
She belonged to the Eastpoint Fire Department Auxil-
iary, Salvation Army and the American Cancer Society.
Her team's name was "Love Your Team."

Lady Sharks Lose Opener


By Jimmy Elliott
The Taylor County Bulldogs of
Perry, FL handed the veteran Lady
Shark Volleyball team their first
defeat of the season at the very
hot and humid A.H.S. gym on
August 29.
Since the Lady Sharks train in a
heated gym, many thought it
would favor the Shark team if the
match went three games. That
would prove to be not the case.
The Bulldogs showed up with a
well conditioned defensive team.
This defense would prove good
enough for a victory. In the first
game the Bulldogs jumped out to
a four point lead on mostly Shark
mistakes. At 4-0 the Lady Sharks
won a volley to gain serve.
Then after a failed spike attempt
the serve went back to Taylor
County and the score went 5-0,
6-0, 7-0 and 8-0 before an at-
tempted spike sailed deep and
Apalach gained serve.
Following a service failure, Tay-
lor went back on offense and 9-0,
10-0. The Sharks regained serve
and scored making the score Tay-
lor 10 Shark 1, before Taylor
with back on offense 11-1, 12-1.
Apalach regained serve and
scored two points making the


score 12-3. The score of ended the
first game Taylor 15, Apalach 5
following 12 service exchanges.

Game 2
Suddenly, the Lady Sharks seem
to come to life, before a good size
crowd cheering the Sharks. The
Lady Sharks took the lead to start
the second game and played up
to the standard that the specta-
tors had expected from the vet-
eran team. There were 34 change
of serves but the Lady Sharks pre-
vailed impressively in a 15 9 win.
Game three was expected to go
the same for the Sharks, but Tay-
lor County had other plans.
The Sharks began the third and
final game of the match serving
first. The serve failed and Taylor
County took charge and made the
third game resemble the first by
getting the ball over to Apalach's
side where they could self-de-
struct. 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 went the
score. Then the Sharks scored
making the score 3-1, then 4-1
Taylor: 5-1,5-2, 6-2, 7-2, 7-3, 8-
3, 9-3, 10-3, 11-3, 11-4, 11-5, 11-
6, 12-6, 13-6, 14-6 and the lost
chance for the Lady Sharks was
a spike that sailed out of bounds
giving the Taylor County Bulldogs
a much deserved victory.

Franklin County Planning Office

2000 Annual Progress Report On

The Repetitive Loss Plan

On September 1, 1998, the Franklin County Board of County Com-
missioners adopted a Repetitive Loss Plan for Franklin County, Florida.
This plan reviewed the areas in the County that have suffered re-
peated property losses due to flooding, and outlined appropriate ac-
tivities to reduce losses in the future. There were five activities adopted
by Franklin County:
1. Mail an annual notice to the residents of the repetitive loss areas.
The Franklin County Planning Department mailed a notice to all prop-
erty owners in the identified repetitive loss areas. This notice informed
the property owners that their house was located in a flood prone
area and suggested alternatives to increase the flood protection of
their property. A brochure suggesting methods of retrofitting struc-
tures to protect them from future flooding was also included with this
notice.

2. Provide technical advice to interested parties that contact the County
to know more about flood protection and flood preparedness.
This assistance has ranged from telling people what flood zone they
are in to explaining the Flood Plain Protection Ordinance to suggest-
ing strategies for flood protection and preparedness. Tim Turner, the
Emergency Management Director, has spoken to various groups
around the County, such as the Alligator Point Taxpayers Associa-
tion, the Senior Citizens Center, schools in Apalachicola, Eastpoint
and Carrabelle, and contractors, about hurricane preparedness.
3. Continue to enforce the Franklin County Flood Plain Management
Ordinance.
All new structures or substantial improvements to existing struc-
tures in a flood zone must have a topographical survey and an eleva-
tion certificate to prove that the structure conforms to the require-
ments of the ordinance. The surveys and elevation certificates are
filed with the building permit applications.
4. Continue to monitor and maintain the drainage system in Franklin
County.
The Franklin County Engineering Department and the Road Depart-
ment inspect and maintain the drainage system in the County. There
were no major problems associated with the drainage system during
this year.
5. Emergency Management Office will produce public information
announcements and pamphlets about hurricanes prior to each hur-
ricane season;.
Prior to hurricane season this year Tim Turner, the Emergency Ian-
agement Director, taped several public service announcements for
play on the local radio stations. '
In cooperation with the American Red Cross, the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council, and the other counties in the region, Franklin
County produced a hurricane survival guide for distribution prior to
hurricane season. This pamphlet included a hurricane tracking chart,
a list of shelters in the region, and advice on how to prepare for a
hurricane and what to do in the event of a hurricane.


Carrabelle Port

And Airport

Authority

A regular meeting of the Author-
ity was called for August 31st at
the Franklin County Senior Citi-
zens Center, Carrabelle.
Under new business, the Board
approved Mr. Jack Yearty's re-
quest to install four pilings for a
boat lift.
The meeting began with a request
from City Attorney Doug Gaidry
to revise the agenda in order to
seat two appointees to the Board.
Carrabelle Port and Airport Au-
thority (CPAA) attorney Ann
Cowles and Doug Gaidry engaged
in a lengthy discussion concern-
ing the seating of the two appoin-
tees, and a letter attorney Cowles
had sent to the Florida Attorney
General requesting a remedy to
the controversy between the CPAA
and the City concerning the seat-
ing of the appointees. (The letter
was published in the Chronicle
issue of 1 September). The CPAA
decided to wait until the Attorney
General had acted on the Cowles
letter.
Discussion was held on property
for a final agreement on land for
the Marine Patrol, but was to be
continued at a meeting in Talla-
hassee later in September. Bond
requirements for the CPAA mem-
bers were reviewed and deter-
mined to be in order and current.
Ms. Cowles was to review a lease
package of Thompson Field. The
next CPAA meeting will be held
in late September.

WMS Rate Hearings from

through the completion of the
project in March 2003. For Phase
2, the projected capital expense
is currently $5,087,364, which
would represent a rate increase
of 96.78 percent over Phase I.
Phase 3-would become effective
six months after the' actual
in-service date of the project in
2003, and would reflect the ac-
tual capital costs incurred, as well
as the effect of any refinancing
and the actual cost of debt.
The customer meeting on Septem-
ber 12 at the Franklin County
Courthouse, was to hear and re-
spond to customer testimony on
quality of service, rate structure
and other comments on the pro-
posed rate increase.
PSC staff is scheduled to file a
recommendation to the Commis-
sion on October 26, 2000, and the
Commission vote on this matter
is scheduled' for November 7,
2000.
The Moderator for the hearing was
Marshall W. Willis, CPA, Chief of
Rate Cases, Division of Economic
Regulation, Florida Public Service
Commission. Speakers of the
evening hearing were: Bob
Harper, President of SGI Civic
Club, representing 750 home-
owners and representing the "eco-
nomic; political, and environmen-
tal voice of the Island," as he
stated. He questioned the fi-
nances involved in the WMS
project and said the homeowners
expected "proper service at proper
costs." Hex also requested "open
bid sessions," and stated that the
homeowners believe "the rate in-
crease request is premature."
The second speaker was Frank
Latham, who said that "Fire flow
protection should be brought be-
fore the Franklin County Board
of Commissioners." The whole is-
sue should be addressed now. He
felt the rate should be different for

Power of the Kick from

however, the Tigers came up with
a trick play that fooled the Sharks
and a halfback pass scored a
touchdown for Blountstown. Now
the two point conversion that
failed for the Sharks early in the
game loomed big.
The Tigers kicking team went out
unorganized and the Shark team
used their last time out. The kick
was good and the Tigers took the
lead 10 to 9 with eight minutes
left in the game.
The following kick off was re-
turned to the Shark 44 yard line,
but a fumble and penalties hurt
the Shark's chances and on
fourth down #33 Kit Mashburn
punted.
To make sure of no fumbles the
Tigers had no one back to receive
the punt and Mashburn sent a
boomer that was downed on the
Tiger 13 yard line. The defense
held and Blountstown punted to
the Sharks.
Two plays later inside the 10 yard
line quarterback Glenn Martina
spiked the ball to stop the clock
at 21 seconds remaining.
Kicker Adam Youngblood came on
the field to try and regain the lead.
The ball barely made it off the
launching pad as Tigers broke
through the Shark offensive line,
but into the night it rose. The
Shark fans roared with excite-
ment when the officials threw
their hands up indicating the kick
was good. Fourteen seconds were
remaining on clock and the Shark
kick off went into the end zone for
a touch back.
From the twenty the Tigers
launched the air attack which
nearly went for a touchdown but
fail incomplete. On third down
and six seconds remaining the
third pass failed as the Sharks
celebrated a hard fought victory.
The final score was 12-10, in fa-
vor of the Sharks.

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


New Doctor At

Wakulla

Medical Center

Wakulla Medical Center has been
a part of Wakulla County since
1991. Wakulla Medical Clinic
serves Medicare, Medicaid, Pri-
vate Insurance patients and offers
a Sliding Fee Program for quali-
fied patients. The center is located
in Panacea at the Panacea Plaza.
The new doctor at Wakulla Medi-
cal Center is Eugene
Charbonneau, D.O. (Dr. Gene).
Dr. Gene is originally from
Sarasota County in Southwest
Florida. He started college at
Manatee Community College in
Venice, Florida and graduated
from the University of South
Florida in Tampa with a Degree
in Biology. He then went on to
Southeastern College of Medicine
in Miami. Dr. Gene did his resi-
dency at University Community
Hospital in Tampa, Florida.
While putting himself through
school, Dr. Gene worked at a va-
riety of different jobs. These in-
cluded mosquito control worker,
newspaper carrier, bridge tender
and truck driver. He still proudly
holds his Commercial Driver's Li-'
cense and occasionally drives for
his brother's trucking company.
Dr. Gene and his wife Kathy have
been married for nine years. They
both really love Wakulla County
and say, "after five years in Tampa
the slower life style and friendly
people are a nice change; we hope
to make this our permanent
home".
Dr. Gene has really taken to his
new office, his staff and patients.
"They are really great people, they
are the kind of folks I enjoy being
around and knowing. I hope to
become a friend as well as the
Doctor." Dr. Charbonneau looks
forward to becoming a part of
Panacea and Wakulla County.


WMS Rate Hearings
from Page 9
those who use more water." The
feeling that there was not ad-
equate fire protection on the is-
land was an important issue.
Third speaker was Steven Wright,
who said that if Gene Browne
"doesn't have the money to cover
it (the project). he is in the wrong
business."
Bob Guyon was the fourth
speaker and was in favor of
"an alternative solution to a rate
increase."
Jay Abbott, fire chief on the is-
land, said that the fire protection
flow of water on the island was
inadequate; and some fire hy-
drants were not hooked up. "We
need to take care of this situation
now," he said.
Gary Loo was the sixth speaker.
He said he was a Civil Engineer
in Florida and California and was
upset that "future builders on SGI
will pay nothing. We will pay all
the costs now." He said he' had
some "serious reservations, and
we need full fire flow protection
now." He suggested another hear-
ing, saying the present custom-
ers should "not pay for custom-
ers 30 years from now."
Pam Vest said, "What we have
here is a monopoly. We 'need to
spread the cost over a longer pe-
riod of time and larger number of
customers."
Attorney Barbara Sanders said:
"Anything that Gene Browne
wants is probably not good for
anybody but Gene." She asked the
PSC to remember "your Watch
Dog Service for customers."
Steven Rash said that PSC should
"not just throw costs on to the
current customers."
He said, "When the pipe line is
built, I would like to see somebody
other than WMS be responsible
for the process of bids."

Tom Lockridge said, "we need to
prepare adequately for the growth
of the island." He also said that
every business needs to think
about "amortization over a period
of time."
Don Murry said that normally a
company makes an investment,
not the customers. He was sur-
prised that this was brought be-
fore the commission in "such a
short time."
Jim Butler said "the rate hike is
unfair." Several said that every-
body who lives on the island is
"not a millionaire and can't afford
the rate increase."
Others voiced the same opinions
and the consensus was that WMS
needed to reexamine its position.

social and political emer-

ofApalachicola and the pris-
tine barrier island, Saint
George. From the earliest
times, both the island and
Apalachicola have become
intertwined. The account of
the machinations of contro-
versial developer William Lee
Popham is the first phase of
area development, 'later
leading to the controversial
struggles of the 1970s when
environmentalists and sea-
food industries fought to
determine the ecological and
economic fate of the Bay
area. The Chronicle has
