According to some estimates,
nearly 20,000 visitors were
brought into Franklin County by
the 38th Annual Florida Seafood
Festival. Since the whole affair is
designed to honor the seafood
industry and the dedicated people
involved, it is traditional for the
annual event to begin with the
"Blessing of the Fleet."
Gathering on the Apalachicola
River were shrimp boats and rec-
reational boats of all sizes and
shapes. The clergy were on hand
for the appropriate "blessings."
On hand also were the King and
Queen of the festivities. Miss
Florida Seafood of 2001 was
Ashley Richards, and King Retsyo
was Ralph Richards. They moved
from the docks to the festival
grounds and mingled with visitors
enjoying a wide variety of seafood,
well-known as "the best seafood
in the world."

St. Joe Summer Camp Development

In Franklin Explained

Representatives of the real estate arm of the St. Joe Company, ARVIDA.
appeared at a membership meeting of the Riverkeeper organization
on Thursday night, in Eastpoint, on November 8th, to explain the
company's proposed development in Franklin County called Summer
The principal spokespersons for ARVIDA were Douglas C. Delano,
Vice President and General Manager, George Willson, Environmental
Resources and Billy Buzzett, Director, Strategic Planning.

Eagle Flight A Blessing For Island

By Sue Cronkite

Like an omen a majestic bald
eagle circled over those gathered
to dedicate the new building for
the St. George Island Volunteer
Fire Department November 5. The
eagle appeared just after Franklin
County Clerk of Court Kendall
Wade introduced Tom Gallagher,
State Treasurer, Insurance Com-
missioner and Fire Marshall.
"You have something here that
many, many communities desire
and don't have," said Gallagher,
"a building constructed with no
taxpayer money." Gallagher, ac
cording to Wade, is known for his
leadership following the disaster
of Hurricane Andrew. "He is to be
commended for the Healthy Kids
health insurance and his efforts
on behalf of the elderly," said
Wade who said he worked for
Gallagher when he was elected to
the House of Representatives in
In addition to Wade, others gath-
ered included Elections Supervi-
sor Doris Gibbs, Tax Assessor
Doris Pendleton, Tax Collector
James Harris, Sheriff Bruce
Varnes, Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment supporters and firefighters.
"Since the St. George Island Vol-
unteer Fire Department began
fighting fires, there have been
1,800 runs," said Gallagher, who
also noted that when Harry
Arnold wants something to hap-
pen it happens. "I feel a sense of
great pride in what you all have
accomplished," added Gallagher.
Woody Miley introduced Mason
Bean who harked back to the be-
ginning with anecdotes on fires
and fire chiefs. "One of the first
island residents Sgt. Walter
Cassel drove a 1949 pickup and
had a gun bigger than he was.
When he moved away the second
fire chief, Ronnie Bloodworth had
a four-wheel drive truck that.
could drag the fire truck. The fire
truck was nick-named 'woogety,


%Q m iw

"The third fire chief was Jan
Harrell," said Sean. 'The fire de-
partment was always broke and
the St. George Island Civic club
was our source of funding. We had
a WW2 Air Raid siren that was
pretty rusty, but it sounded off
every day at noon.
"The fourth chief John Luttrell
kept the engines running and we
got a 200-ft. Hose reel. It was
mounted on top of the truck and
it wouldn't go in the fire house.
The dirt floor was dug out so the
truck and hose could fit," said
"On New Year's Eve in the early
1980s, Harry Arnold had just
moved to the island and there was
a fire in an apartment," said Bean.
"It had a flat roof and to ventilate
it a hole was chopped and Harry
fell in. After that Harry got in-
volved in fund raising. By 1982,
there was enough money to buy
a real, used, fire truck.
"In 1985, Alice Collins' Realty
building burned to the ground. We
needed a better truck. By 1989
we had a 2,000 gallon
pumpertanker. The present Chief
Jay Abbott is constantly raising
the bar on our performance. He
initiated the First Responders.
There are so many who worked
for this. There are so many who
deserve thanks."
"I love being a part of the fire de-
partment," said Miley, "I love be-
ing part of the fun, the Chili
Cookoff, wearing flip-flops and
cutoff jeans. We probably have the
best support of any fire depart-
ment anywhere. Our firemen and
First Responders have training,
equipment, people we need. As
Mason said, lets give a hand that
can be heard in New York," and a
loud round of applause echoed
over the island.

Douglas C. Delano
Mr. Delano began by.saying that St. Joe has transformed itself into a
real estate company in the last few years. The St. Joe Company is the
largest private land owner.in the State of Florida, with over 1 million
acres of land. "We own about 60,000 acres or so in Franklin County,
and I'm fairly directly involved in what will happen in development for
some of those acres." He advised listeners that there were no plans to
build a Jurassic Park in Franklin County, nor were those acres to
become an extension of Disney World as many rumors have told. He
advised "...the vast majority of those acres in Franklin County will
wind up being in protected status probably through conveyance to
government or through the Nature Conservancy ... or a combina-
Summer Camp is in eastern Franklin County. This is sometimes re-
ferred to as St. James Island. With a pointer and map, Delano pointed
to the Marine Laboratory reminding the audience that the location
was also occasionally referred to as Turkey Point. A part of Summer
Camp also embraces portions of the old military base, Camp Gordon
Delano emphasized that ARVIDA was in the preliminary stages of the
planning process for the 635 acre Summer Camp.
"...We have some initial concepts that we think should
apply here but we've been making a special effort to get
out and talk to people and find out what they think...What
are their concerns? What are their interests? What sug-
gestions might they have? .."
"...Our initial concepts are the following: That this project
would be a rustic, vacation home kind of community. It
would be very informal. Family oriented. In fact, the name
Summer Camp ... was selected to invoke a memory of
lorg ago when you had summer camp as kids, (and there
were) nature studies, fishing, crabbing, kayaking and that
sort of thing... This would be a low density project, less
than one unit per acre. It would be single-family, detached
homes. There won't be any multi-family products or high
rises ... We expect to limit the size of the homes ... We
think that the way St. Teresa has developed (with) sig-
nificant setbacks from the water, hidden in the trees for
the most part, we think that's the kind of character that
should occur on this piece of ground (Summer Camp) ...
We also think there should be a small boat access facility
here ... Our research has shown that people who would
have a small vacation home here, would want to have a
small boat."
Delano stated that there were some challenges with the project. One
of the proposals is to rebuild about 1.2 miles of Highway 98, to relo-
cate the highway's short distance further north. This would move the

Commissioner: Jimmy
Mosconis, Commissioner:
Cheryl Saunders,
Commissioner; Clarence
Williams, Commissioner:
Eddie Creamer, Chairperson

Superintendent of Public
Hubert Chipman inquired if he
would be permitted to purchase
items on the new budget but
Chairperson Creamer expressed
reservations about any expendi-
tures until the results of the Spe-
cial Session were available.

County Extension Director
Bill Mahan announced that the
Monarch Tagging Program for
2001 had started. This is the sec-
ond year for the program, which
works closely with the monarch-
tagging group at St. Marks. Bevin
Putnal raised some doubts about
the official declaration of red tide
algal bloom. A letter is to be sent
to the Northwest Florida Water
Management District. The letter
stated in part,
"Franklin County is currently
in a state of economic disas-
ter due to the red tide event,
which has closed the
Apalachicola Bay to oystering
since October 16, 2001. As a
result of the red tide, our
1,100 self-employed, li-
censed, oystermen and
women, a major portion of our
local workforce, have been
unable to go to wqrk harvest-
ing oysters from our local
In addition to the obvious se-
rious economic impacts to
our oyster harvesters, their
families and the oyster pro-"
cessing plants, there has
been a major impact on our
local retailers due to the ex-
tended closure of the bay.
This situation coupled with
the fact that Franklin County
is already designated an area
of critical state economic con-
cern compounds the prob-
We realize that the red tide al-
gal bloom is a natural event.
However, we also know that
red tide events in
Apalachicola Bay are uncom- '
mon and when one does oc-
cur, it is correlated with low
freshwater flow from 'the
Apalachicola River system
into the bay.
Therefore, the members of the
Franklin County Board of
County Commissioners dur-
ing their regularly scheduled
meeting today, voted unani-
mously to request your help
as the Executive Director of
the Northwest FL Water Man-
agement Director to work
with Army Core of Engineers
to increase the amount of
water flowing down the
Apalachicola and into the bay
in an effort to rid the bay of
the red tide algae. 1
In addition to the above ac-
tion, the Board of County
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to request that Gov-
ernor Bush declare Franklin
County as an area of eco-
nomic disaster."

Public Hearing on Camp
Gordon Johnston
The Board approved a land use
change from Residential to Pub-
lic Facilities zoning, and a zoning
change from R-1 (Single family
residential) to Z-1, public facili-
ties for the Camp Gordon
Johnston Museum.

General Administrative
The Board approved advertising
for bids for construction of the
Courthouse Annex. Bids would be
opened December 4th at 9:30
The Board set a public hearing to
amend the CDBG stormwater
project contract with the State on
November 20th, at 9:45 a.m. The
amendment is about payment of
engineering fees to Preble-Rish.
The Board also signed the con-
tract for the engineering and de-
sign of the CDBG project. The
County attorney had reviewed
and approved the contract.
The Board set for hearing a re-
zoning request of 10 acres from
R-6 to R-1 (one unit per ten acres
to one unit per acre) owned by
Sharon Gardner.
The Board approved a sketch plat
of "Doc's Sea Shores", a four lot
subdivision on 4.1 acres of land.
The Board approved the reorga-
nization of the Enterprise Zone
Development Board, which would
replace the previously appointed
Board. The appointments to that
earlier Board have expired. Mr.
Pierce reported, "...This Board will
hopefully provide leadership and
guidance to developing Franklin
County's enterprise zones, but the
ones in Franklin County have
never been very successful..."
Anita Gregory, Executive Director
of the Apalachicola Bay Area
Chamber, reviewed the history
and changes in conditions involv-
ing past boards for the Commis-
sioners. Time was of the essence
in reformulating the board. Part
of the reformulation of the board
is to expand the enterprise zones.
A proposed list of new members
was read to the Board of Commis-
sioners. A final review of the com-
position of the board will be made
when the Commissioners submit
their nominations to the board,
perhaps by the next meeting on
November 20th.
Bids for 13 T-hangars for the
Apalachicola airport and second
floor office space in the main han-
gar, and 10 additional office
spaces were received by the Com-
mission. The bid was turned over
to the Airport Advisory Commit-
tee for review.
If approved by the-County Attor-
ney, the Board approved joining
a lawsuit.filed by ,Liberty County
against the State of Florida over
the formula of payments in for-
estry land. If Franklin and Liberty
counties won the litigation, the
formula would result in a sub-
stantial increase in fees paid to
the county.
Bert Vallery of the Vallery Insur-
ance Agency made a presentation
to the Board involving health in-
surance at reduced rates by of-
fering group Medicare supple-
ment for retirees.
Wally Hilliard, President of Parker
Beach Restoration, Inc., made a
proposal to the County Commis-
sioners that would allow the
county to use state funds. In his
letter to the Commissioners, he
"...Line item 1724 of the 2001
2002 Appropriations states
that the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection shall
utilize up to 10% of the funds
appropriated in the Specific
Appropriation 1724 to adjust

lations, bringing to a close an extensive two month drug investiga-
tion. Thus far, 23 persons have been arrested and formally charged;
over 44 arrest warrants have been sworn. Other arrests are pending.
Charges included selling of a controlled substance including crack

local government projects
that include efficient and ef-
fective project components
that extend the maintenance
period of beach restoration
projects or for local govern-
ment projects which require
preventative actions while
awaiting beach restoration
projects. Additionally, any
and all funds saved by use of
alternative methods shall be
used to fund other projects on
the approved list. Because the
Sand Web System can act as
an interim measure to pre-
serve a critically eroded beach
or extend the maintenance
period of previously restored
beach at a much lower cost
compared to traditional
methods, it enables the State
to utilize the money saved to
maximize dollars on the pri-
ority project list."
Hilliard insisted to the Commis-
:sioners that the author of the leg-
islative language intended to re-
quire the Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) to use a
portion of the funds for "innova-
tive restoration projects on
Florida's beaches." Charlie W.
Clary, III, State Senator from Dis-
trict 7, wrote to Secretary David
Struhs (DEP) reminding him of
the problem.
"These innovative technolo-
gies, which the department is
directed to periodically review
and permit under Ch.
161.082 F.S., have the poten-
tial to substantially increase
the number of projects receiv-
ing funding in a given cycle
by reducing the overall costs
of beach restoration. Unfor-
tunately, DEP,staffers have
been slow to respond and
even slower to give approval
on permit applications for any
projects involving innovative
technologies submitted in the
last several years. While ar-
eas like Amelia Island and
other undeveloped beaches
have been under attack from
continued storm events and
increased erosion, DEP has
been slow to respond to re-
quests that would have
yielded data on innovative
technologies that could have
resulted in the deceleration
and potential restoration of
this and other beaches, at a
fraction of what it will now
cost to restore them in full.
It was my intention as author
of the language, and the in-
tention of the Legislature in
passing the budget, to re-
quire. DEP to use a portion
of the funds provided in line
1724 of the budget on inno-
vative restoration projects on
Florida's beaches. 'The
projects may include, or be
solely comprised of, innova-
'ive beach restoration compo-
nents as provided by Florida

The Year" In The Northern District Of Florida

Ricky Strickland, Postmaster in Apalachicola, was
recently recognized as Postmaster of the Year for the
Northern District of Florida, embracing all of the 323
zip code areas. The criteria for the award consisted
of multiple items in performance and customer
service. He felt that the award also reflected the
performance of his staff, so they all posed for the
Chronicle photographer. Included from the left are:

Siaiute I n i a excerpt of a
report issued by Mr Brad
Pickel (see attachment), in
paragraph (2)) Mr. Pickel
states "Florida State Statute
Section 161.101 (13)(e) states
that experimental projects are
not eligible for state cost
sharing under the Florida
Beach Erosion Control Pro-
gram." What he does not say
is that the remaining portion
of F.S. 161-101 (13)(e) says,
"...unless favorably peer re-
viewed or scientifically docu-
mented." Without the count-
less delays and
"foot-dragging" by DEP staff,
maybe the projects now con-
sidered 'innovative or experi-
mental' would have already
been approved for main-
stream use."

ing from dredging is to remain in

Terry Jangula of the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers talked with the
Commissioners about Corps
projects in Franklin County.
There were two alternatives being
designed for the county to con-
sider on the Alligator Point road.
The cheapest one would be a vi-

nyl sheet pile. The Corps has
spent about $75,000 of their
$100,000 "free design work" so
far. Pierce was advised if the
Corps went above that last figure,
the county would have to come
up with some money.

November 11,
2001 In Car-abelle

By Rene Topping
Sunday, November 11 in
Carrabelle was a day to remem-
ber as the various patriotic veter-
ans organizations, The Camp
Gordon Johnston Association,
The American Veterans (Amvets),
The American Legion, came to-
gether and also had individual ac-
tivities. The first united event was
at Carrabelle Beach, at 8 a.m. to
unveil a plaque honoring the men
who passed through this town on
their way to Europe or the Pacific
as they trained at camp Gordon
Johnston for amphibious land-
ings on faraway shores.
On this special day they also paid
homage to the many young Ameri-
can men and women who are once
more in foreign lands defending
their homeland.
One man and his wife had flown
in from Wisconsipn to be here for
the unveiling of the plaque that
honored the men of the 4th In-
fantry. Roger P. Dufek, and his
wife Linda had come from the
Wisconsin Chapter of "A" COM-
served in Vietnam and is on the
National Board of the Association.
Members of the Wisconsin Asso-
ciation had gathered soil from
each place they trained or fought
at in the United States and in
Europe to be placed in a memo-
rial in Arlington, Virginia.
Some time ago, in 2000, Sid Win-
chester President of the CGJA and
Chester Cowan, to honor Cowan's
father who had served in the 4th
Infantry, gathered the white sand
of Carrabelle to be added to the
other soils from many other
The CWA Chaplain, Carl
Hallstrom., led the people in a
prayer for those past veterans and
the ones who are now serving in
harm's way.

Toriy Minichiello and Roger Durek
unveiled the plaque, which will
stand forever as a memorial to
those who came here as young
men and fought in WW II. Some
gave their lives. But others who
came back with wounds, and even
those uninjured, all were changed
by their experiences.
The plaque reads: "WORLD WAR
"In late 1943, Carrabelle Beach
and Dog Island, while they were
a part of Camp Gordon Johnston,
were used by the U.S. Army 4th
Infantry Division to train for the
Normandy Invasion on D-Day,
June 6th, 1944. The Amphibious
Training Center had been offi-
cially closed, but it was reopened
and staffed for the purpose of
training for this important Mis-
sion. Although the troops had
trained for over three years, the
amphibious training conducted
on this site was the last step be-
fore shipping out to England for
the invasion. On D-Day, the first
amphibian infantry assault teams
to arrive on French soil were from
UTAH BEACH. On June 6th, of
2000 the Camp Gordon Johnston
Association extracted a small
amount of Soil from this site and
delivered it to the National 4th
Infantry Division Association to be
placed in Association's Monument
in Arlington, VA. The U.S. Depart-
ment of Defense's World War II
Commemoration Committee in
1995 named the Camp Gordon
Johnston Association an
official "Commemorative Commu-
Roger Dufek gave the CGJA a
check for $500 from his chapter.
In speaking to the assembled
people he said, We memorialize
this as a site for training of the
men for D-Day and for future gen-
erations. All that is happening in
our country now, makes it impor-
tant that we preserve the
division's history and equally im-
portant that we share it with fu-
ture generations. Steadfast and
loyal soldiers made this nation
what it is today and now we look
to this generation."

prayer for the young people who
are in harm's way.

American veterans of any war
anywhere in the world.
The raising .of the flag was done
by a group of boy scouts from Port
St. Joe. and they also retired the
flag. Tim Everritt Commander of
the Legion Post spoke on the sub-

Players To Hold

Benefti Show

For New York

Special to the Chronicle
Royce S. Rolstad, III
Last December, after a five-year
hiatus, the Panhandle Players re-
turned to the stage with the hit,
"The Curious Savage." This year
they will present a two night per-
formance at the Dixie Theatre
titled, "American Holiday" which
is to be held on Friday December
7th and Saturday December 8th
at 8:00 p.m. The two perfor-
mances will consist of musicians,
singers, actors, dancers, and oral
interpreters saluting America, its
arts, and its heroes. Proceeds
from the event will go to the
American Red Cross for the relief
efforts in New York City. Beth
Blair, who is one of the
co-directors of the show says, "I
think people want to lose them-
selves in movies, plays, and com-
edy ... the time is right to get the
community together." Barbara
Siprell who will appear onstage
said this about having a tribute
show, "I think it is a great idea."
The two-night performance will
include such locals as Wesley
Chesnut, Dolores Roux, The Trin-
ity Episcopal Church Choir, danc-
ers from Pam Nobles Studio, a
Barbershop Ensemble, cast mem-
bers from last year's production
of "The Curious Savage," and
many others. Tickets are $10.00
and can be purchased at the Dixie
Theatre on Light-Up Night, No-
vember 23rd, from members of
the Panhandle Players, or at the
door the evenings of the two per-
formances. The show will be open

From The Citizens For Alternatives

To Pesticides (CAP)

The Citizens for Alternatives to Pesticides (CAP), a grassroots citizens
action group, opposes the spraying of pesticides for mosquito con-
trol, especially Dibrom and other organophosphates, and strives for
officials to implement least-toxic alternatives, The means of spraying
pesticides, even when there is a potential threat of the West Nile Vi-
rus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), is potentially det-
rimental to human health, is ecologically unsound, counter effective
and may be a potential contaminant to locally grown produce.
There is a wealth of scientific evidence and literature document-
ing that Dibrom, Malathion and other organophosphates; are sim-
ply unsafe to humans. Unfortunately, the public receives the exact
opposite message. The New York Health Department reported that
more people have gotten ill due to exposure to insecticides than the
West Nile Virus itself during the last two years of mosquito control
programs. The Centers for Disease Control recommended that Florida
use alternative chemicals when 230 residents reported exposure ill-
ness from Malathion. EPA and other data reveal that Dibrom is even
more harmful to humans and wildlife than Malathion.
These pesticides also kill many non-target species, specifically natu-
ral predators of mosquitoes. Eradicating these creatures can merely
perpetuate the mosquito problem by eliminating potential predators.
In a ten-year study in the Northeast during the 80-90's, dibrom was
sprayed routinely on swamps containing mosquitoes carrying EEE,
and at the end of the study, the mosquito population exploded by 15
times the original population.
And, since we do not know the implications to the environment as a
whole, we are blindly poisoning ecosystems and altering the natural
balance of nature.
Local organic farmers readily realize the consequences of the
non-discriminate spraying of pesticides. Their crop becomes tainted,
and they may or may not lose their organic certification. Either way,
they must jeopardize their morals and sell produce as organic or de-
stroy the crop and take the financial loss.
For these reasons, CAP demands local ard state government officials
consider least-toxic alternative methods of controlling mosquito and
use pesticides as last resort in specified areas. We are putting our
citizens at risk of exposure to damaging consequences of pesticides,
especially individuals-such as the aged, children and those with
compromised immune systems-who are most vulnerable to the ex-
act diseases we are trying to contain. We are deteriorating the natural
balance of the environment and possibly propagating mosquito popu-
lations. A more responsible approach would include non-toxic mos-
quito control and implementing a comprehensive public education
campaign aimed at reducing exposure on the scale undertaken when
preparing for a natural disaster.

News was received from Brian
Goercke, former editor of The
Franklin Chronicle, who is with
the Peace Corps in Zimbabwe,
where he has been located for the
last three years. He sent an email
from there this week, relating to
events there.
Regarding the young girl, Tarira,
for whom he is seeking medical
attention, Goercke said, "We're
inching closer to the mark and I
think we might actually get there
before I leave here." He mentioned
that several people locally'in
Franklin County had sent money
to the New York address, in order
to provide medical care for the
young girl, Tarira.
He said he was grateful to all that
had responded with their help and
Some other news was reported. It
was reported that the Peace Corps
program in Zimbabwe has been
"suspended." Supposedly, the
government locally in Zimbabwe
rejected all the new teachers from
the new training group. Those re-
sponsible in the Peace Corps ap-
parently "got fed up" with the lack
of cooperation and decided to
"pull the plug" on it all.
Brian said, "I've already pur-
chased my ticket home so I'm
staying put til that time. They
might make me go to South Af-
rica to officially close service,
which would be an inconve-
The closing date for volunteers
locally with the Peace Corps in
Zimbabwe is November 19, 2001.
Brian said that it was not hard to
believe "this happened," but that
it was hard to believe it happened
"this early." He had thought that
things would go smoothly there
until "next year's election." Appar-
ently, the local government is not
satisfied with the Peace Corps and
its services. The local Zimbabwe
government seems tobe in some
political turmoil.
Brian Goercke said that he will be
"staying at the home where I work
till I depart." His e-mail address,

evacuation route further away from the water. Secondly, the re-routing
would allow for some improvements on what he called a dangerous
intersection with highway 319. This would also allow the developers
to use the old Camp Gordon Johnston area as a village layout. An-
other challenge is presented with the FSU Marine Lab. "We believe
the Marine Lab to be extremely important and valuable to the suc-
cess of the Summer Camp project. He cited the "Saturday by the
Sea" programs sponsored by the Lab to be appealing for visitors and
residents. "We're looking at not only the existing Marine Lab location
as a possible small boat access facility, sharing it with them, but
another location here and another location here (pointing to areas
west of the Marine Lab)..."
He pointed out that the Bay is an Outstanding Florida Water, and
that there were sea grass beds there. "Our objective is to have no
negative impact on the Marine Lab nor the sea grass beds, or the
water quality ... Delano pointed out that ARVIDA had hired a con-
sultant expert on sea grass beds to ensure there would not be any
negative impact on the sea grass beds.
The developers expect to install a community water and sewer sys-
In regard to the wetlands, more concentrated on the eastern end of
Summer Camp, this area would be more suited to cluster-type devel-
opment, small homes relatively close together, hidden amongst the
Delano said the developer hopes to submit their plans for approval by
the first of next year, 2002. The permitting process is expected to be
nine to twelve months long, with building to begin sometime in 2003.
Their marketing analysis suggests it would take 7-8 years to fully
develop the property. He read through a selected list of suggestions
received thus far ending with the suggestion that the Marine Lab be
painted a different color.
Question: How many units envisioned?
Answer: The property is 635 acres and we expect the
density to be less than 1 unit per acre. The cluster homes
might be something like 1100 square feet to maybe 1700
square feet. On the western portion, the homes probably
would not be larger than 3000 square feet. The build-out
time would be 7-8-9 years.
Question: Price ranges?
Answer: If you buy a house near highway 98, a lot there
would be less than $150,000. How much less, I'm not
really sure. On the other hand, if you are going to buy a
large lot with a great house (near the water), the house-lot
combination could go as high as $700,000... I would say
as a general rule they would be less expensive than St.
George Island.
Question: Will these be gated communities?
Answer: Yes.
Question: How much of this property would be rental property?
Answer: We do not intend to structure the project as a
rental property. Homeowners may rent their houses from
time to time. We think 60 % of the buyers would come
from Tallahassee, and consequently, the use of the prop-
erty by owners would be pretty high.
A question was raised about the relationship of St. Joe Co., with the
Marine Laboratory. Delano said, "...They are staying... We're having
some discussion with them about possible sharing of the use of the
boat basin... Later, he said, "...We're looking at only one boat access
facility and the best location..."
Cheryl Sanders, Franklin County Commissioner, reminded Douglas
Delano that whatever plans there might be for a boat basin, the poli-
cies articulated in management plan for the basin would have to be
followed. Delano responded: "Our objective is not to create a huge
boating facility." Gail Dodds, chairperson of the Franklin County Plan-
ning and Zoning committee agreed, "Well, I hope not."

George Willson
George Willson, Vice President for Conservation Matters, St. Joe Cor-
poration, spoke about the company's plans for conserving certain St.
Joe properties near and within various project developments across
the panhandle of Florida. He briefly outlined his background in con-
servation activities including water quality issues and liaisoning with
other private and state agencies. He explained that the company is
attempting to identify quality forests, preserves, parks, and wildlife
refuges so these may be preserved, not developed. In some cases, St.
. Joe would sell the land to the state or private entities such as the
Nature Conservancy for future preservation. Last year, for example,
the company transferred acreage to the Florida Wildlife Commission.
.Other packages, up to 22,000 acres, became public land with access
. completely open to the public for recreation and other uses. 6000
" acres was identified around Wakulla Springs, originally a part of Ed
Ball's foundation, is now a public preserve. St. Marks Refuge would
like to buy about 20,000 on the north side of the refuge to protect the
watershed. The State would like to buy another 20,000 acres for habi-
Stat protection. "We told them, let us know when you're ready to buy..."
Right now, Willson said, the State would like to buy additional acre-
age around the new park at Bald Point, about 2800 acres. 'Two aquatic
: preserves, bear habitat, tremendous archeological site..." he said.
"Parks are good for the economy, they're good for the environment
and they add value to a region..." This is one example where we would
try to create parks that "fit" the different regions, help protect water
quality and help protect the area.." He pointed out that the Bald Point
land acquisition would help protect the aquaculture site in Alligator

Billy Buzzett

Billy Buzzett, Director of Strategic Planning for the St. Joe Corpora-
tion, and a former resident of Apalachicola, explained that his pres-
ence at the meeting was introductory. He is available for any ques-
tions about the Franklin project. However, his primary focus now has
been in Bay County and a sector plan, a large master plan that allows
for an area to be planned without actual development. This is one of
five sector plans allowed by the Florida Legislature and the Dept. of
Community affairs..The focus of the Bay county plan involves the
new airport as anchor to some 8000 acres in the plan. The St. Joe
Company is working closely with the Nature Conservancy to maxi-
mize the ecology and environment of the area.
The reader is advised that the Chronicle holds a modest equity inter-
est in the St. Joe Company.

School Board Notes Financial

Effect Of Red Tide Outbreak

By Sue Cronkite
Efforts to bring the plight of area
seafood workers to the attention
of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and the
Legislature were endorsed by
members of the Franklin County
School Board at the November 8,
2001, meeting. The sudden in-
crease to more than $1,000 a
month in water, garbage, and
sewer rates for Apalachicola High
and Chapman Elementary were
brought to the attention of the
board and compared to Carrabelle
School's bill at just over $500 for
the previous month.
One of the first actions taken by
the board was the presentation of
a plaque in memory of the late
Mrs. Diana Smith, Even Start
parent educator for Franklin
County, to her husband Lamar
Smith by Jimmy Gander, chair-
person. "The primary goal of the
Even Start project is to assist
families in breaking the cycle of
poverty and illiteracy," said Gan-
der. 'To'achieve this goal, Mrs.
Smith helped provide adult basic
education, early childhood educa-
tion, and parenting education for
families over the past ten years."
School Supt. Jo Ann Gander said
she feels optimistic. The teachers
and principals are doing a good
job. "'We're tightening up in some
areas," she said. 'The FTE count
has been down. We have less than
1,500 students in five schools,
including the Charter School. I
appreciate the effort David Meyer
has put in."
School Board Member Katie
McKnight asked that Supt. Gan-
der draft a letter to be sent to the
governor pointing out the finan-
cial disaster to seafood workers
and their families due to closing
of the bay to oystering because of
red tide. '"The county commission
is doing this, and I think we
should also, said McKnight. Supt.
Gander also suggested granting a
waiver on pre-K and kindergar-
ten fees.
Chairperson Jimmy Gander
asked that Board Attorney Bar-
bara Sanders work with Asst.
Supt. Mikel Clark on re-writing
the policy on transporting stu-
dents in private vehicles. The
problem with the policy is that it
goes back to the time of covered
wagons," he said.
Board Member David Hinton
asked that "on another subject"
he'd like to hold a closed school
board hearing, "not an expulsion
hearing, but to discuss a situa-
tion that requires discretion."
Supt. Gander said the meeting
could be held after the school
board reorganizational meeting
November 20.
Board member George Thompson
thanked Teressa Jones for the
recent scholarship list and sug-
gested flashing it on the marque.
Jones, representing teachers, said
a special session of the Legisla-
ture is to start the day after
Thanksgiving and that legislators
should be contacted to "help us
work through this crisis."
Board members approved a
school resource officer agreement,
a cooperative agreement between
the Department of Juvenile Jus-
tice and the Franklin County
School District, a contractual
Agreement for inter-county trans-
fer of exceptional students, and
notice of intent to participate with
Liberty County.

Residents Can

Light Up The

Beach Again!

By Rene Topping
The Apalachee Conservancy Or-
ganization (APECO), held their
regular monthly meeting at 10
a.m. on November 10, following
the APTA meeting. The organiza-
tion has 85 members and 2 com-
mercial members.
Vicki Barnett (The Turtle Lady),
made a full report of the turtle
nesting results for 2001. She said
that there was a total of 18 nests
which was a 50 per cent increase
over year 2000.She also said there
was a decrease of 24 per cent of
false crawls. She added that it was
because of the residents turning
their lights away from the beach.
She said "You can turn your lights

back onto the beach. Thank you
for your help."
Bob Burnett had reported they
had only one active nest and there
were 5 false crawls at Bald Point
State Park.
Barnett said that 56 certified let-
ters had gone out to residents to
advise them on, the law that resi-
dents have to turn off lights that
show out to sea at nesting time.
This ordinance was written in the
year 2000 and was the first in
Florida. Other counties are follow-
ing suit. She said only one per-
son kept their lights on.
However she said that an amend-
ment is needed to allow the sher-
iff to enforce it, as State agencies
such as Florida Wildlife Commis-
sion or Department of Environ-
mental Protection are not able to
enforce it.
Barnett said Van Lewis, who lives
near the FSU Marina at Turkey
Point, had problems with the
lights turned his way. There are
ways to help that out and Barnett
said that she would talk to the
folks at the Marina.
Duverger said that he had noted
that St. Joe was logging in prepa-
ration for the area where Summer
Camp will be developed.
Dr. Howard Kessler of Panacea
reported on the area on Dickerson
Bay where he said Don Nichols
has three tracts of land that go
from just past Angelo's restaurant
to Panacea, He said his concern
was the destruction of the wet-
lands and the fact that the Pana-
cea sewer from time to time has a
problem and raw sewage is al-
lowed to escape into Dickerson
The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, (DEP) had declared
some lands that were environ-
mentally sensitive and yet when
the land map came out with the
stamp of approval there is not one
foot that is sensitive environmen-
tally and he said all he can get
from the State personnel is that
nobody knows how this slipped by
them. All of the marshlands are
zoned Urban 1 and Urban 2.
He said there were several other
problems and noted that there
was a commission meeting on
November 13 at 7 p.m.
APECO has hired an attorney,
Steve Pfeiffer, also Rob McGee, an
expert on comprehensive Plans,

and Paul Johnson on environ-
mental issues.
The other committees will be Pub-
licity with Ann Marasuk along
with Chris Strickland. She will be
assisted by Chris Strickland. Ann
will also work in Fund Raising.
Other committees are Election,
Lake and Bay Watch and Project
Hidden Harbor Development will
be on the agenda of the planning
and Zoning meeting of November
13 at 6:30 p.m.
The next meeting of APECO will
be held following the APTA meet-
ing on December 15.

No Sales Tax Due

On Old Glory,

Florida Flags
The Florida Department of Rev-
enue is reminding Sunshine State
retailers and consumers that pur-
chases of U.S. national and
Florida state flags are exempt
from state and local sales tax by
Florida law has exempted pur-
chases of official U.S. national
flags and Florida state flags since
1974, but this exemption has re-
ceived little attention in recent
years and some retailers may not
be aware of it. The exemption only
applies to the official national and
'state flags. Flags of other states,
nations or non-government orga-
nizations are still subject to tax.
Flag jewelry, decals and stickers
are taxable. In addition, tax ap-
plies to clothing that bears a rep-
resentation of the U.S. or Florida
flags. Tax also applies to Ameri-
can and state flags that have been
altered to include elements not
present on official national and
state flags, such as the addition
of a slogan or an image.

Disagreement Causes

Extension Of Water Talks

By Tom Campbell
In the continuing fight among
Florida, Georgia and Alabama
over the waters of the
River system, a meeting Tuesday,
November 13, in Atlanta failed to
produce an agreement. The differ-
ence stems from the Florida need
for more water flow from federal
reservoirs upstream on the
Chattahoochee River during
Director of the Georgia Environ-
mental Protection Division said
that Florida is asking too much.
The states have extended the talks
until January 15, 2002, to con-
tinue developing their
water-sharing proposals.
There are some that maintain that
a potential solution does exist, but
that possibility requires a far dif-
ferent outlook on the part the riv-
ers play in the lives of people along
the 750-mile system.
Sources in Florida have said that
the best outcome for the state,
and for the Apalachicola River and
Bay, is to avoid a court fight
among the three states over
water-sharing. If an effort were
made to balance in favor of hu-
man needs along the system, en-
vironmentalists maintain that the
ecosystem would lose.
Florida officials have backed regu-
lations for water flow in order to
meet environmental needs.
Florida's proposal would regulate
the flow to simulate the river's
natural cycles of drought and
flood. This would maintain the
diversity of wildlife in the
Apalachicola River and fish and

oysters in the Apalachicola Bay.
Some environmentalists state
that such a proposal would be
difficult to write and even more
difficult to maintain.
Whether there can be any agree-
ment reached in the coming
months is doubtful. But some o -
ficials said it is encouraging that
the three states' representatives
are at least still talking.
Conservation of water seems to be
a key in the efforts to find some
agreement. One basis for agree-
ment appears to be the wise stew-
ardship of the water basins along
the three rivers, which lie within
all three states.
Journalist Bruce Ritchie of the
Tallahassee Democrat has been
writing a series of articles on the
search for an agreement among
the three states. For further in-
formation, he may be contacted
at 850-599-2253.
The states have been involved in
water talks since 1990. If a pro-
posal is accepted at the meeting
Tuesday in Atlanta, there will be
a 60-day public comment period,
followed by an eight-month fed-
eral review. If they don't accept a
proposal, each state will have to
agree to extend the deadline or the
talks will end.
One way or another, it is clear that
the end to negotiations has to be
near, as people, manufacturers
and the environment in all three
states have needs that must be
"addressed." Bob Kerr, Georgia's
chief negotiator, said: "We can't
keep putting those (needs) off,
while we are trying to get this

APTA Reported A Busy Month
Of Secntamber

By Rene Topping
The Alligator Point Taxpayers As-
sociation (APTA) Met at the Alli-
gator Point Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment firehouse at 9 a.m. Novem-
ber 10. Joe Hambrose presided in
the absence of President Barnett
who had to be out of town. The
association has 281 members.
Hambrose called for reports from
committees and Vicki Barnett re-
ported on the Hidden Harbor De-
velopment that is proposed for a
site in the area of Bald Point Road
and Alligator Drive on the bay
Barnett said that the members of
the committee had been in close
connection with Franklin County
Planner Alan Pierce on the devel-
opment. She said that the devel-
oper, Don Nichols, has now de-
cided not to go for a PUD but is
asking to do the development in
phases, starting with the first 35
homes on the peninsula on the
She said that no survey has been
seen on the property and the de-

velopment is apparently not in
compliance on several issues in
the county's comprehensive plan
and the county planning and zon-
ing. Members of both APTA and
of Apalachee Conservancy Asso-
ciation, Inc (APECO) will bring
this matter to the November 13
meeting of the Franklin County
Planning and Zoning meeting.
The membership committee has
sent out a survey to all taxpayers
on the Point to see how they feel
about the actions of the APTA and
what they would like to see hap-
pen on the Point.
They will also include a member-
ship application.
The directors are working on get-
ting insurance for the board and
also on the bylaws.
Roy Duverger said that a new li-
cense plate is being planned to
say "Protect Our Coral Reefs."
On the Turtle Nesting Protection
Project: 'Vicki Barnett said that
the nests are all cleared and the
residents can turn on their lights
The next regular meeting of APTA
will be at 9 a.m. December 15tlh.


State Disease
Line Expanded
In light of recent events, danger-
ous germs and deadly diseases
are top-of-mind for many Florid-
ians. The Florida Department of
Health Bureau of Epidemiology
has recently contracted with
Tallahassee-based technology
firm, PATLive, to enhance the re-
sponsiveness of the bureau's tele-
communications system. The ser-
vice now provides callers inter-
ested in learning about reporting
procedures or finding out more
about disease outbreaks 24-hour
access to a live voice.
The Florida Department of Health
(FDOH) enlisted the assistance of
PATLive to accommodate a rise in
calls to and increase the efficiency
of its toll-free telephone informa-
tion system, particularly during
the evening and early morning
hours. PATLive answers calls from
5 p.m. to 8 a.m. daily and handles
call overflow between 8 a.m. and
5 p.m. During regular business
hours, the FDOH responds to

Using guided technology,
PATLive's highly trained telecom-
munication representatives direct
callers to disease information or
link them to experts. Known as
Personal Assistant Teams (PATs),
the PATLive representatives work
from carefully crafted scripts to
answer, relay and log calls. The
new system streamlines calls in
order to handle them as quickly
and efficiently as possible. Cur-
rently, callers can obtain informa-
tion about Anthrax, West Nile vi-
rus, St. Louis Encephalitis and
Eastern Equine Encephalitis.
There are plans to further extend
the service to include information
about additional diseases. Florid-
ians interested in finding out
more about communicable dis-
eases can call 1-888-880-5782.

FWC Addresses Manatee And

Marine-Life Feeding Issues

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
voted Thursday, November 2nd,
to ban marine-life feeding by
divers and dive tour operators.
Marine-life feeding by divers sur-
faced as a concern two years ago
when a south Florida group told
Commissioners divers who feed
sharks and other marine species
may pose a public safety hazard.
Numerous environmental groups
believe the practice could alter the
natural feeding behavior of ma-
rine species.
After two years of study and five
public hearings, Commissioners
concluded the practice of
marine-life feeding is not in the
best interest of marine life or the
public and adopted the new rule,
which takes effect January 1st.
Commissioners also directed staff
to investigate the merits of peti-
tions to reclassify the West Indian
manatee from endangered to
threatened and the Panama City
crayfish from species of special
concern to threatened. Criteria for
listing under the three classifica-
tions include population levels,
confinement to a limited range,
probability of extinction within
the next few years and other fac-
tors. Petitioners believe the mana-
tee may no longer meet the crite-
ria for listing as endangered, and
the crayfish may warrant a higher
level of protection than afforded
under the species of special con-
cern classification.
After FWC staff completes prepa-
ration of a biological status report,
a panel of scientists from outside
the FWC will review the staffs
conclusions and make recom-
mendations. Staff will then cre-
ate a management plan for the
affected species. The full process
may require up to two years to
Commissioners also passed a rule
to reduce the daily bag limit on
snook from two fish to one and
add May to the summer closed
season on sriook on Florida's Gulf
Coast, effective Jan. 1. The new
rule does not apply to snook fish-
ing on the state's East Coast.
Snook on the Atlantic Coast are
faring better under current man-
agement practices, but high fish-
ing pressure on the Gulf Coast
has held the population below the
desired level.
In other marine fisheries action,
the Commission voted to extend
the current moratorium on the
issuance of marine life endorse-
ments (permits for commercial
collection of ornamental fish)
through June 30, 2005......

i In addition, Commissioners re-
Iviewed and discussed their
I artificial-reef-ship policy and vari-
1ous federal issues, including a
Proposal to require persons sell-
ing swordfish in Florida to have a
valid federal permit and to specify
a minimum size limit of 47 inches
lower-jaw fork length for any
swordfish harvested from state
waters or possessed in Florida.
The Commission directed staff to
develop a proposed rule to allow
commercial fishermen to possess
50 undersized lobsters (shorts)
plus one short per trap on board
a vessel to use as attractants to
harvest legal-sized spiny lobsters.
Commissioners also directed staff
to conduct additional research
and work with the lobster indus-
try to develop appropriate speci-
fications for wire used to con-
struct traps. The FWC will sched-
ule public workshops and develop
a proposed rule to allow the sale
of imported spiny lobster in
Florida during the closed season.
The FWC directed staff to draft
proposed rules to establish a
sponge-harvesting endorsement
on the Saltwater Products Li-
cense, and prohibit harvest of any
commercial sponges measuring
less than five inches (measured
crosswise from the top of the
sponge), and allow harvest of bay
scallops between the Suwannee
and Weeki Wachee rivers during
the 2002 open season, and pro-
hibit harvest of bay scallops west
of St. Joseph Bay.
Commissioners also directed staff
to hold a final public hearing in
January on a proposed rule to
reduce the statewide requirement
for bait shrimp live well tanks in
wholesale or retail dealer storage
facilities from 64 cubic feet of
water to 32 cubic feet of continu-
ously aerated saline water. Com-
mission staff will prepare final
drafts of rules to address federal
and local issues and consider
them for final action after public
hearings at future meetings.
Regarding inland issues,
Commissioners voted for
re-establishment of the Upper St.
Johns Marsh Type II Wildlife Man-
agement Area (WMA) adding
2,733 acres, and the Lake Wales
Ridge Wildlife and Environmental
Area (WEA) adding 319 acres.
Land acquisition items approved
by the Commission included: the
2,121 -acre Pal Mar Tract adja-
cent to the Hungryland WEA, a
nine-acre addition to the Little
Gator Creek WEA and three par-
cels, totaling 54 acres, as addi-
tions to the Yucca Pens Unit of
the'Babeock-Webb WMAA. ...

In addition, Commissioners ap-
proved the addition of two tracts
for addition to the FWC Florida
Forever acquisition list so pur-
chase negotiations can begin. The
tracts include two billboard ease-
ments totaling 0.21 acres on the
Chassahowitzka WMA and 7,068
acres adjacent to the Aucilla
Commissioners also delegated
authority to the FWC's executive
director to approve future addi-
tions to the FWC Florida Forever
acquisitions list. The Commission
would have the opportunity to
continue or to terminate acquisi-
tions at the next meeting. Com-
missioners also delegated to the
executive director authority to
approve land acquisitions of less
than $250,000 after notice to the
individual Commissioners. Any
Commissioner could, however,
elect to have the approval
decision brought before the
Staff reports to the Commission
included: minimum flows and lev-
els for Florida river systems, a
marketing plan for Florida Wild-
life magazine, a strategy for posi-
tioning Florida as the fishing capi-
tal of the world and a report con-
cerning Lake Trafford restoration.
Commissioners elected John
Rood to serve as chairman and
Edwin Roberts as vice-chairman,
for 12-month terms. Also, they
recognized two-term Commis-
sioner Julie K. Morris, whose term
expires in January.
The next Commission meeting is
tentatively scheduled for January
23 25 in Tallahassee.

Carrabelle City Meeting

By Rene Topping
The Carrabelle City Commission
met on November 1st at the
Franklin County Senior Center for
their regular monthly meeting.
The only commissioner to report
was Raymond Williams who
stated that he had met a man
from the S.B.A. Corporation in
reference to a site for a 911 tower.
Williams said that he showed him
an area that is adjacent to the
sewer plant but no contract was
decided on. Williams said he will
report if the site was O.K. and
then they would enter into a lease.
On a commercial review of a Bar-
becue restaurant to be named
Hog Wild B-B-Q, by the new own-
ers of the former Hobos Ice Cream
Parlor, Linda and Ken La Paz. He
had sent in a site plan which
would add a 1,300 square feet of
space for a dining room, to seat
up to 88 people, on the west end
of the present 900 square foot
Building. Parking would be in the
rear of the building.
The commissioners had to send
this request to the county Plan-
ning and Zoning Board as this
corner is in the county although
it is surrounded by city of
Carrabelle. Williams said he
would make a motion seconded
by Frank Mathes to send the re-
quest to the county planning and
zoning board for their recommen-
Ronnie Joseph was selected to be
the new employee City Water and
Sewer Department. This will leave
a vacancy in the Streets.and Parks
Department. However when City
Clerk Beckey Jackson, asked
should she insert an ad for the
vacancy, Williams said that he
moved that the post be left open.
He was seconded by Mathes and
the motion was approved.
Three other applicants, Alicia
Dianne Crapps, Leon Everett
O'Neal II, and Nelson Vanburan
Woods showed up for interview,
The commissioners had very few
questions to ask of them.
Five retired city workers Herbert
Mock, Mary Lou Mathis. Jesse
Gordon Smith, and Karen Daniels
representing her husband
Charles Lee Daniels. The fifth re-
tiree, Marvin Braswell, was too ill
to come to the meeting. They were
not approved for any financial
help. However it was said that the
City Clerk is looking into several
health plans and will continue to
do so.
A special public meeting will be
held on November 27 at 6 p.m. to
consider the final draft of the Tim-
ber Island Resort project.

Raymond Williams and Wilbur
Curtis Messer will continue to be
representatives of the City at the
Apalachee Regional Council.
On the city's surplus junk, an ad
will be run for one week. Commis-
sioners said that bids would be
accepted to a certain date and
that would appear in the ad. Jack-
son will notify the high bidders of
each item.
The commissioner' selected to
keep one year as a probationary
worker in any city job.
Rene Topping thanked the Com-
missioners on behalf of the
Franklin County Humane Society
for their financial support for the
Animal Shelter. She said that the
city had always been very good to
the Society.
The next City Commission regu-
lar monthly will be held on De-
cember 6 at 7 p.m. at the Franklin
County Senior Center.

Pet Prescription
Having your dog or a cat in the
house may do more for your
health than the pills your doctor
prescribes, or the nutritious food
you eat every day. Pets have a
salutary effect on their owners,
according to several studies. An
Australian survey of over 5,000
Australian men showed that those
who owned pets had lower blood
pressure, as well as lower triglyc-
eride and cholesterol levels, than
those who didn't. Other studies
found that people who come home
to a pet improve their chances of
surviving a heart attack or other
illness. Among the elderly, those
who interact with pets have been
found to have better overall physi-
cal and mental health than their
petless peers. One recent study
showed that by keeping animals
around, a nursing home actually
lowered mortality rates-leading
some experts to suggest that,
when choosing a retirement
home, you should pick one with
a pet-friendly environment.

HCFA Gets Name Change
The Federal agency that runs
Medicare has changed its name.
No longer the Health Care Financ-
ing Administration, with the awk-
ward acronym HCFA, it's now the
Centers for Medicaid and Medic-
aid Services, CMS for short. The
agency also has a new chief, Tho-
mas Scully, who promised im-
proved service as a primary goal.
For a start, he said, beginning
October 1st, the Medicare hotline
will have customer service repre-
sentatives on hand 24 hours a
day, ready to answer beneficiary
questions. At present: this service
is available only during business
hours. The toll-free number re-
mains the same, 1-800-633-
Blood Pressure-Watch
Those Numbers
Screenings for blood pressure
typically record two numbers-
the "upper" number, when the
heart contracts, called systolic
pressure, and the "lower" num-
ber, when it's at rest between
beats, called diastolic pressure.
Not long ago, you'd hear people
stress the importance of the "bot-
tom" or lower number as the more
important of the two. The National
Institute on Aging now recom-
mends that more attention be
paid to the "upper" number, ad-
vising that getting it below 140
can boost your chances of stay-
ing healthy.
According to the, NIA, optimal
blood pressure is less than 120/
80. It defines high blood pressure
as a systolic reading of 140 or
greater or diastolic reading of 90
or greater. The Institute also ad-
vises that age makes a difference
when it comes to looking at blood
pressure results. In older people,
measurement of systolic blood
pressure better identifies those
with high blood pressure and at
risk for cardiovascular disease.
This is in contrast to younger
people, for whom the reverse is
true. Generally speaking, systolic
pressure increases steadily as we
get older, while diastolic pressure
declines, usually starting around
age 55.
Because many older people don't
know that a high upper number
is a sign of hypertension, they
don't take steps to protect them-
selves against this condition. Un-
treated, it can lead to heart attack,
stroke, kidney failure and demen-
tia. The good news, says the NIA,
is that by taking control, older
people can add meaningful life to
their years, remain independent
and stay out of hospitals and
nursing homes.
Hypertension therapy may begin
with lifestyle changes, like salt
reduction, weight loss and exer-
cise. If that doesn't bring your
blood pressure down to the tar-
get rate, your doctor will likely
prescribe medicine. A diuretic
(water pill) is usually recom-
mended as the first type of medi-
cation for high blood pressure in
older adults. It's proven to be an
effective, well-tolerated drug, and
an inexpensive one. Having your
blood pressure checked regularly
is one of the best things you can
do for yourself. If the systolic pres-
sure is above 140, take the nec-
essary steps to bring it down. To
quote the NM "For good health,
get your 'upper' lowered."

To Lowering High Blood Pres-
sure," which can be reached

Colin Powell with Joseph E.
Persico. In time for the po-

is also the embodiment of
the American Dream. Born
in Harlem to immigrant par-
ents from Jamaica, he knew
the rough life of the streets.
For the first time, he tells us
"how it happened" in a
memoir distinguished by a
love of country and family,
warm good humor and a
soldier's directness. He
writes of the anxieties and
missteps as well as the tri-
umphs that marked his rise
to four-star general, Na-
tional Security Advisor,
Chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, mastermind
of Desert Storm, and some
argue, the man many would
like to draft as a candidate
for President of the United
States. Sold nationally for

(192) Vivian Sherlock's bi-
ography of John Gorrie,
The Fever Man, is available
once again after being
out-of-print for more than
a decade. This is the story
of John Gorrie, young phy-
sician who invented an "ice
machine" that many argue
was a forerunner to air con-
ditioning dozens of years
later. His cooling device was
developed to provide relief
to his suffering yellow fever
patients. A museum in
Apalachicola to this day
marks the work of John
Gorrie just across from his
last resting place in Gorrie
Square, down from Trinity
Church. This book tells
what is now known about
Dr. Gorrie, his work and his
ice machine. Paperback,

(277) Cassadaga: The
South's Oldest Spiritual-
ist Community. Edited, by
John J. Guthrie, Jr, Phillip
Charles Lucas and Gary
Monroe. Calling itself a
"metaphysical inecca" the
small town of Cassadaga,
between Orlando and
Daytona Beach in central
Florida was established
more than a century ago on
the principle of continuous
life, the idea that spirits of
the dead commune with the
living. Through the
founders of Cassadaga have
passed on to the "spirit
plane", the quaint Victorian
town remains the oldest
continuously active Spiritu-
alist center in the South
and was added to the Na-
tional Register of Historic
Places in 1994. While the
community has often been
sensationalized and mis-
represented, this is the first
serious work to examine its
history, people, cultural en-
vironment and religious
system. Published by the
University of Florida Press,
2000, 241 pp. Hardcover.

Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt:
The Home Front in hWd )Rlkrll

.Author df A e Fil:genrlds andf ther inKedys
(212) No Ordinary Time.
Here is a compelling
chronicle of America and its
leaders during the period
when modern America was
created. Doris Kearns
Goodwin has written a nar-
rative of how the United
States, in 1940, then an
isolated nation divided
along class lines, suffering
the ravages of a depression
and woefully unprepared
for war, was unified by a
common threat and also by
the extraordinary leader-
ship of Franklin Roosevelt
to become the preeminent
economic and military
power in the world five
years later. At the center of
this transformation was the
complex partnership of
Eleanor and Franklin
Roosevelt. You have not
read this history before.
Using diaries, interviews
and White House Records,
Goodwin paints a detailed,
intimate portrait on the
daily conduct of the Presi-
dency and the Roosevelts
themselves. Here is the pro-
found story, of the
Roosevelt's leadership that
led the nation to military
victQry an4d the changing
fabric of Amerieancn-society.

(285) War Letters: Extraor-
dinary Correspondence
from American Wars. Ed-
ited by Andrew Carroll, edi-
tor of Letters of a Nation.
Forward by Douglas
Brinkley. Hardcover, pub-
lished by Scribner's 2001,
493 pp. In 1998, Andrew
Carroll founded the Legacy
Project with the goal of re-
membering Americans who
have served this nation and
preserving their letters for
posterity. The best of
50,000 letters are as-
sembled in this extraordi-
nary collection offering un-
precedented insight into the
Civil War, World Wars I and
II, Vietnam, Korea, the Cold
War, the Persian Gulf and
fighting in Somalia and the
Balkans. Here are the dra-
matic accounts of combat
written immediately after
the battles; poignant ex-
pressions of love by home-
sick husbands and sweet-
hearts; humorous anec-
dotes and gripes about in-
sufferable conditions;
thoughtful reflections on
war. Currently selling na-
tionally for $28.00.
Bookshop price is $24.00.
Tom Brokaw wrote about
this book: "Andrew Carroll
has given America a price-
less treasure. These letters
are intimate, deeply per-
sonal portraits of the cour-
age, sacrifice, and sense of
duty that made this coun-
try. They remind us that
greatness is borne on the
shoulders of ordinary men
and women who love their
country and each other."
Studs Terkel said, "These
war letters are more deeply
moving, more revelatory,
and more powerful than
any dispatch from the front.
It's the truly FELT history
of what war is all about."

strains. Susan Eisenhower
tells us how they survived
the stress. Sold nationally
