Litigation Team Visits Fishermen

At Cedar Key

A Report And Commentary By Tom W. Hoffer


Retired Judge Charles McClure addressing fishermen.

Counselor Charles McClure, Fisherman Ronald Crum and several
members of the Wakulla Fisherman's Association met with fisher-
men at a restaurant in Cedar Key on Wednesday, July 10. to discuss
prospects for a lawsuit against the State of Florida and appropriate
agencies. The trip was part of a plan to confer with fishermen around
the region concerning various aspects of the proposed litigation, iden-
tifying potential interested parties, and engendering support for the
work.
Retired Judge McClure described the process of a class action law-
suit and the path of appeals. Mr. McClure did share with the fisher-
men present their immediate plans to try to confer with Governor Jeb
Bush and ask him to make a formal inquiry of the agencies charged
with erfforcing the net limitation activities. Moreover, the Judge said
that the Florida Constitution says that the Governor has the author-
ity to ask the Florida Supreme Court to advise him as to what his
duties are with respect to the net limitation laws. "He can also re-
quire that agency, the Wildlife people, to give him a written report as
to how they are enforcing it, and I told the General Counsel, Charles
Kennedy, about the harassment that you guys have been getting and
the selective enforcement that's been plaguing you ever since the
Amendment was passed..." The Judge added he was going to meet
with the Assistant Chief of Staff for the Governor and others and
"make a pitch on several levels ... My daddy always said, 'Things
don't just happen; you have to help them along' ... So, this being an
election year ... I'm going to appeal to his.better conscience there to
help us out with what he can do..."
Ronald Crum stated, "...The lawsuit is about your civil rights." Judge
McClure added, "...We might be able to name them individually, but
if you start naming them individually, then you've got to name all of
the law enforcement officers who are employed there, and what they've
done ... What we want to do is to control the Agency and I think the
only way to do that is either with the Florida Supreme Court. If they
continue to disobey-if we get a favorable ruling from them we'll bring
them up on contempt charges. If we get a Federal ruling that you all
have been denied of your civil rights or because you're disabled you're
not able to engage in your life-long business, you've been deprived of
your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and your way
to earn a living. So, it will wipe out a lot of that enforcement process
that they're doin' right now."
During the discussion, Ron Crum brought forward one argument that
he has heard many times. The administrative agency, the FWCC
(Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission), is autonomous
once the appointments are made by the Governor. In the legal case
currently on appeal, Counselor Ron Mowrey argued that the forma-
tion of certain of their rules were not formally held, allowing for citi-
zen irinput, attacking directly the constitutionally of the rules that dis-
- approved mesh sies. gre-ater .-tthan--two-inehes;-forpexample. The Net
Limitation Amendment does not mention mesh sizes at all: these
"rules" are creatures of administrative law. In the Federal realm, such
administrative rules are subject to appeal to the District of Colombia
Circuit Court.
Crum argues that a larger mesh actually allows the small fish to
escape the 500 square foot nets, thus preserving the resource. The

Carrabelle City PUD Ordinance Passes 3-4


By Rene Topping
The Carrabelle City Commission
gave final approval on the hotly
contested PUD Ordinance in a 3
to 2 vote at their regular monthly
meeting held on July 11. Commis-
sioner Raymond Williams made
the motion to approve and he was
seconded by Commissioner Frank
Mathes, with Mayor Wilburn
Curly Messer. Commissioners Ed
Saunders and Phillip Rankin
voted "Nay."
The Project Under Development
(PUD) Ordinance had been
deemed necessary when a
Wakulla group of developers
headed by Mary Lawhon, a
Wakulla Real Estate Broker, came
to the city commission meeting
held in May with-a proposed con-
dominium project to be built at
the end of Marine Street, in
Carrabelle, on what is presently


the site for Millender's Seafood. At
that time the commissioners and
the public were shown a sketch
of the proposed four story build-
ings by the company's Consult-
ant Freda White. She also said
that they wanted to build them to
a height of 74 feet making the new
development the tallest in the
county.
The ordinance had its first and
second reading at the June meet-
ing. There was dissension from
the citizens who criticized the or-
dinance for being written with
many specifics left out.
Among these was Attorney Ben
Watkins, who also owns a great
deal of commercial and residen-
tial land in the area, said he had
mixed emotions but felt that there
would be problems with the way
the ordinance was written. Oth-
ers were Jim Lycett and Pat Maier.


First on the list of 5 speakers on
the night of July 11 was Tim
Turner from Emergency Manage-
ment, who said that there is con-
fusion in the county as to.what is
the coastal high hazard zone. (The
Carrabelle Commission has re-
cently passed an ordinance say-
ing that the only high hazard zone
in the Carrabelle City area is Dog
Island, taking Timber Island and
the mouth of the harbor out of
that zone.)
He had several other concerns on
allowing development in high haz-
ard areas. He said that if the city
allows multi-story buildings with-
out the capability and the equip-
.ment for firefighting or rescuing
people from high floors, he said
"There will be an increase need
for emergency assistance." I hope
that the commissioners will con-

Ronald Crum (background) and Michael Fallon, Chronicle
Recordist, tape recording the meeting at Cedar Key in
anticipation of a film and video documentary.
FWCC mandated two inch mesh allows fishermen to capture the small
fish and thus killing the resource. Videotapes have reportedly been
made showing this but they were not part of the trial record in the
Pringle-Crum net case now before the First District Court of Appeals.
Another point of contention in these matters is the composition of the
FWCC, with very few commercial fishermen represented on that
agency.
Attorney Charles McClure, in outlining the tasks involved in the coming
litigation, described the great research needs for the case, and the
likely necessity of involving more litigating attorneys.
Many of the fishermen at the meeting had their run-in with the Florida
Marine Patrol and several had been arrested over the question of
their nets. One fisherman attending the meeting had a very long nar-
rative on problems with enforcement of the so-called "net ban" start-
ing in the early 1990s.
When the Net Limitation Amendment took effect, David Grix lost his
home and his boat for lack of funds to service his mortgages. He was
a commercial fisherman servicing a minority market in Riveria Beach.
Florida. Since then, "...all the markets in Riveria Beach have'been
run out of business by the FWCC..."

cludes an education leadership mas-

At the regular meeting ol the
Lan-ark \Villale water and Se\.er
Distnct ILVW'SDI held at 2 p.m
on July 16. the three ommis-ion-
ers \oted to send a letter to the
Carrabelle Comissiton to open
nergo(tatiors that may end w\-th
the District being taken over by
Carrabelle. On motion from Jack
Dupriest, seconded by Mike
Hughes, the board voted to send
a letter to the Carrabelle Commis-
sion saying that the board is ready
to talk with the city provided they
will negotiate under Rule 180 191
1 sub A. Dupriest feels that will
give them the best deal. The mo-
tion was approved unanimously.
Dupriest had, with the approval
of Lawlor and Hughes, met ear-
lier this month with Carrabelle
Commissioner Raymond Will-
iams, Carrabelle Attorney Dou-
glas Gaidry, and Bill McCartney
and Dan Keck, of Baskerville and
Donovan, to feel them out as to
where they were with Lanark Vil-
lage.
The suggestion made by Dupriest
in order to have the two entities
to become one, would entail that


the City of Carrabelle would have
to take over all the District's as-
sets, not to include some outly-
ing real property in several lots of
land. They would also assume the
District's debt.
Dupriest said that he felt that the
Village population could benefit as
he feels that their basic monthly
bills would go down a little.
He said that there would be a lot
of things that would have to be
done before any consolidation
would happen.
Lanark Village would not lose its
identity if this arrangement goes
through. Dupriest said that the
rate of $48.00 now paid by the
Villagers for water and sewer
could be reduced.
The letter is simply to start talks
with Carrabelle and nothing will


happen until the two entities-have
a written contract. The LVWSD
Attorney Tommie Thompson said
he will research for the District.
Dupriest pointed out that in a few
months there will be an election
as all terms will be up on the three
commissioners and if the three
people now on the board do not
run he felt that, as so many times
before, there would be no one to
step up to the plate.
Dupriest also pointed out that the
District does not have the same
capacity to get grants as Carra-
belle has. He said that the Dis-
trict has few choices, one would
be to stay as they are or allow the
consolidation to take place. An-
other would be to stay as they are
now a small district between two
Larger ones.

Briefs

Present: Chairperson:
Eddie Creamer;
Commissioner Cheryl
Sanders; Commissioner
Jimmy Mosconis;
Commissioner Bevin
Putnal and Commissioner
Clarence Williams
July 16, 2002
Superintendent of Public
Works
Hubert Chipman reported to the
Board that he has ordered his
trucks. He also informed the
Board that there was an addi-
tional truck with needed repairs,
in "bad shape." The County At-
torney advised the Board that
departments should avoid "emer-
gency" purchasing decisions and
use the bidding process. The
Board declared the truck pur-
chase an "emergency."

Solid Waste Director
Mr. Van Johnson had nothing to
report.
County Extension Director
Bill Mahan reported on the an-
nual 4-H Marine Camp at Camp
Timpoochee with 92 students
from/ Florida and Alabama.
Mahan also informed the Board
that a recent study of the Univer-
sity of Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences by the
Florida Office of Program Policy
Analysis, ordered by the Legisla-
ture, found no evidence of dupli-
cation of services between IFAS
and other state agencies. The
draft report was dated June 13,
2002. IFAS also has extension
agents in all 67 counties, includ-
ing Franklin, "who do far more
than dispense advice to farmers
about livestock and crops," said
an article published in the
Gainesville Sun on July 5th.
Fourteen state agencies relied on
IFAS employees to do things such
as educate welfare recipients
about nutrition, teach homeown-
ers how to fertilize their lawns
without polluting the aquifer, and
conduct testing for people who
apply for pesticide applicator li-
censes. In short, the University of
Florida Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Sciences was praised
in the report by the watchdog
agency.
Cheryl Sanders reported to the
meeting that power boats have
damaged some, of the clam bags
at the Alligator Point aquaculture
sites. She inquired if signs had
been posted to warn boaters of the
problem in that area. Commis-
sioner Sanders recommended
that the signs be put into place.

Rescind A Motion
Bevin Putnal made reference to an
earlier motion made by the Board
of County Commissioners regard-
ing a "hardship" case. Putnal rec-
ommended rescinding the motion
allowing the owner to seek rezon-
ing his one acre to R- 1 or leave it
agricultural. He is prevented from
putting a house on the one acre
but may establish a business.

County Sheriff
Major Crum appeared before the
Board to explain their continuing
problems with electrical storms
and lightening strikes at the
county jail. "We've had a problem
with lightening strikes ever since
the facility has been built," he
said. They tried to handle the
damage .piecemeal out of their
budget but the strikes kept reoc-
curring, knocking out their equip-
Iment.
A lightening storm during Sep-
tember 2001 cost the jail $38,008.
There is about $12,000 remain-
ing for repairs in this fiscal year.
Major Crum left some documen-
tation with the Commissioners to
look over and would return at the
next meeting for a decision..
The Board received one proposal
for CDBG applications and they
turned over the one bid to Alan
Pierce for review and a later re-
port to the Board.

Hospital
Commissioner Mosconis informed
the Board that he had developed
a contact with a potential new
hospital leasee. The Board voted
to approve Mr. Mosconis's contin-


ued "conversations" with repre-
sentatives of a new hospital leasee
and to report back to the Com-
missioners.
Director of Administrative
Services
The Bret Ketchams were trying to
resolve a stop work order issued
to them in building their house.
The stop-work order was issued
because the house that was per-
mitted was of a different size than
What a variance had allowed. The
: Board took no additional action
and the stop-work order holds
until the house is redesigned. The
house construction had not be-
i gun with only batter boards
erected.
Mr. Pierce informed the Board
that Ms. Roxie Allen, Seafood
Dealer, had resigned from the
Planning and Zoning Commis-
sion. Pierce reported that tradi-
tionally ths is a difficult seat to
fill. In 15 years, only two persons
have served in this seat, Ms.
Annie Mae Flowers and Ms. Roxie
Allen.
Mr. Pierce announced that FDOT
would do their annual inspection
at the airport on August 13th. Mr.
Pierce distributed a copy of the
"No Glass on the Beach" Ordi-
nance. This will be advertised for
August.
The Board approved a quote of
$8500 to demolish "My Blue
Heaven" and take the debris to the
landfill. Earlier, the Board had
rejected a bid of some $60,000.00
to remove the house. Mr. Pierce
has been searching for an eco-
nomical way to get rid of the
house. 'He contacted two firms,
but only one sent a quote. Pierce
asked the Board to consider this
matter as an "emergency" because
without immediate action by the
Board, the house may collapse
and then the county will be re-
sponsible for removing the debris
from the water.
Alan Pierce informed the Board
that he has received encouraging
information about a public boat
ramp that accesses the old ferry
dock on St. George Island. Ms.
Helen Sporhrer, part owner of the
old ferry dock, is not opposed to
allowing the county to improve the
boat basis, including some dredg-
ing, so long as she and her part-
ners are held harmless from pub-
lic activities on private land. She
is having her lawyers investigate
how that can be done. Pierce con-
tacted Mr. Jim Stoutamire of DEP
permitting, and Mr. Woody Miley,
DEP, and both gentlemen would
support the re-establishment of a
boat basis and boat ramp on the
west side of Franklin Boulevard.
Pierce thought that Ms. Spohrer
and her group owned all of the
land along where a channel might
be dredged, but it is possible we
could access the channel off of the
DOT right-of-way. Ms. Spohrer
would consider selling some land
to"the county but currently the
county does not have the funds
needed for a purchase. Pierce in-
formed the Board that he was
looking into funding sources to
buy the land for a boat ramp.
On July 9th, Chairperson Eddie
Creamer and Planner Alan Pierce
met with Terry Jangula of the
Army Corps. of Engineers at the
50 acre parcel the county is con-
sidering purchasing from St. Joe.
The initial use of the parcel would
be for a spoil disposal area for
dredging the Eastpoint channel.
The parcel is about 3 miles from
the channel, within the range that


spoil can be pumped. However,
there is no simple way for the ex-
cess salt water that is discharged
with the spoil to get back to the
bay without going across state
land. Mr. Janfula did not think
that the state would allow saltwa-
ter drainage across state forest
land. Installing pipes to carry the
water back would be too expen-
sive. Having exhausted all possi-
bilities for uplands disposal, it
would appear that the DEP would
have to allow some other location
for the spoil. 4
The Planning and Zoning Com-
mission met in regular session on
July 9th, and recommended the
following actions. The Board ap-
proved all items.
A) recommend approval for two
docks:
Chris Reinkemeyer to construct
a private dock on Lot 13, Block
D, Magnolia Bay, Eastpoint. This
is at the north end of North
Bayshore Drive in Eastpoint.
Robert Roundtree to construct a
private dock on Lot 25, Shell Har-
bor, St. George Island. This is on
the east end.
B) The Commission recommends
approval of a sketch plat for a
subdivision known as Mary's
Beach, a 5 lot subdivision on 10
acres, in section 35 and 36, Town-
ship 7 south, Range 5 west, re-
quest submitted by Ms. Freda-
White. This is located several
miles west of Carrabelle Beach,
between Eastpoint and Carrabelle
and property already zoned R-1.
C) The Commission recommends
rezoning 5 acres of land from R-6
to R- 1 and a sketch plat approval
for a 3 lot subdivision on the 5
acres;, on property known as Tract
16 of Emerald Point, or also
known as being located in Section
24, Township 6 south, Range 8
west, or approximately 2 miles
east of State Road 65 on US 98.
County Attorney
Al Shuler brought up the ques-
tion of whether a zoning or land
use matter should be held in
abeyance for one year after denial
by the Commission. The unstated
policy of the Board has been to
deny for one year any zoning or
land use question if once denied
by the Commission. Shuler ar-
gued that unless circumstances
have changed, the denial for
bringing the same matter up be-
fore the Commission again should
remain in place. There appeared
to be a general consensus on the
Board to have the policy ex-
pressed in writing. Gene Langston
said "We've all lived with it for
years; he should have to live with
it too." Commissioner Mosconis
said "We should not do anything
except put the policy in writing."
,The Board approved. ....
The Board approved a change or-
der for the airport road to install
a 42-inch pipe while the road is
under construction. The esti-
mated cost ius $10,000.
David Kennedy of Preble-Rish re-
quested the Board grant a 60-day
time extension to C.E. Roberts for
completion of the CR67 repaving
project. The Board approved.

Clerk
Kendall Wade presented a draft
resolution tp accept unanticipated
revenues of $36,540.00 to be de-
posited in the General Fund.
Mr. Wade passed out Budget
Books to each Commissioner to
review. The first workshop on the
new budget will be held on Mon-
day, August 12,.2002 at 9:00 a.m.

EDITORIAL AND COMMENTARY


The Outing Of Karl Wickstrom _

By Jim Lycett
For those who don't know, Karl Wickstrom is the Founder and Edi-
tor in Chief of Florida Sportsman magazine and the guiding hand
behind the misnamed Coastal Conservation Association.
He and his editorial board are the most outspoken advocates of com-
mercial fishing ethnic cleansing in Florida and carry heavyweight
status outside the state as well.
His media empire has such reach that to ignore the ravings of this
man is to concede your commercial fishing livelihoods. Far beyond a
difference of opinion this man uses fabrications, half truths, and
distortions to mold a pliable readership and an unknowing public to
his cause. No extreme is too great in this man's quest to eradicate all
commercial fishing.
Before expanding on Mr. Wickstrom's excesses one must under-
stand the strategy of radical eilvironmentalists that King Karl has
adopted so well.
With so many environmental success stories in this country, from
cleaner air and water, to increased forest lands and an overabun-
dance of game in the eastern U.S., greenies have to go farther afield
to find issues that juice up the faithful. It is important to them to
find issues in areas that not 1% of the population is knowledgeable
about, manufacture their own information, call it a crisis, and then
appeal to the public's predisposition to be environmentally consci-
entious.
Once the issue is framed, the PR horses are hooked up, the public
manipulated, and any facts or reason are crushed by the bandwagon.
The victims of these onslaughts are almost always defenseless. They
are few in numbers, lacking in money and media expertise, and in-
evitably working for a living. Perception, not reality, is the key. Fish-
ing and resource decisions have become totally political, the merits
of the case be damned.
The issue that brings Mr. Wick-strom's notoriety to a head is the
recent red grouper battle. The National Marine Fisheries (NMFS)
wants to shut down all grouper fishing for four months, reduce bag
limits to 2 fish, as well as ban longlining inside of 50 fathoms. Abso-
lutely unacceptable fumes Karl, if we would only continue to prac-
tice economic genocide on the commercials there would be no prob-
lems.
The recreational fishing industry in the southern states has a di-
lemma. Much like the national parks, the sheer volume of partici-
pants is causing the gulf waters to be loved to death. Technical ad-
vances like GPS and video sounding machines have given every week-
end warrior the same fish catching potential as a commercial fisher-
man without the economic brake of operating costs. New designs in
boats and motors have created incredibly efficient killing machines
that can cover vast areas in no time at all in their search for fish. In
short, recreational fishing is a juggernaut that has mammoth im-
pact on stocks, especially in Florida, and therefore must live up 'to
its responsibilities and share in the sacrifices to maintain stocks.
So why is Mr. Wickstrom such a character? Because of his media
reach, his network of clones, and his financial clout what Karl
Wickstrom says and directs to be said is digested by a huge percent-
age of the public. If his statements are false and misleading the
public's perception will be false and the truth will go unattended.
Take the grouper flap for instance.
In the highly charged atmosphere of this debate Wickstrom and his
surrogates printed articles in the Tallahassee Democrat and other
leading papers and magazines.that were almost carbon copies of a
CCA press release. These articles claimed the commercial fishermen
took 87% of the grouper landings and recreational only 13,.:.. The
facts are that the recs got 2/3 ofthe grouper take-and-commercials .
1/3, according to NMFS data. But think how inflammatory such
false reporting is and how quickly' it rates a public backlash to
commercial fishing.
Wickstrom loves to claim that the marine resources belong to every-
one but back-peddles furiously if that means he and his cohorts
have to be restricted in any way.
Lost in the user allocation debate is the fact that 90% of Florida's
population doesn't fish but may want to enjoy the resource that is
supposed to belong to them too. Commercial fishermen are only a
transfer mechanism to get fish from the bottom to the plate for all to
enjoy. Every reduction of commercial fishermen means someone is
shut off from the resource they are supposed to own.
This article is not about who is more deserving of what, it is about
the truth. It is about honest discussion in trying to find solutions in
regards to our fisheries.
A 'demagogue of Mr. Wickstrom's dimensions, is usually outed by
the press, but in these politically correct times the mainstream me-
dia has looked the other way as Mr. Wickstrom perpetrates his abuses.
Don't hold your breath waiting for justice to be done, get ready for
more lynchings.

THEATRE '


Tony Partington
Stars In "A Tenor
On Broadway"

By Tom Campbell
Tony Partington (Tenor) and Karl
Lester (Piano) filled the stage at
the Dixie Theatre with brilliance
in "A Tenor On Broadway." Di-
rected by Cleo Holladay, these two
great talents had a wonderful time
entertaining their audiences.
The set by the Dixie Theatre Com-
pany was delightful, serving per-
fectly the needs of the perform-
ers.
Tony Partington has enjoyed a
successful career as both a singer
and an actor, spanning two de-
cades. Credits include: Dead Po-
ets Society, All My Sons, The
Fantasticks and others. He pro-
duced and hosted the award-win-
ning weekly series "Singer's Spot-
light" for National Public Radio.
Karl Lester received his B.A. in
piano performance from Jackson-
ville State University and his mas-
ters from Florida State. He taught
music and band in Franklin
County from 1987 until 2000 and
band in Wakulla County from
2000 Until 2002. He was selected
as Apalachicola High School
teacher of the year in 1999. He
has performed as soloist and ac-
companist with the Ilse Newell
Series and is currently in the pro-
Scess of opening piano studios in
Tallahassee and Apalachicola.
Randy Thompson as Technical
Director, Troy Cox as Stage Man-
ager, Felix Antonio Ruiz as Assis-
tant Stage Manager, and Paulette
Mihale as Costumes and Proper-
ties, complete the ensemble which
turns in the usual professional
job.
:Tony Partington is a handsome,
:, dynamic :entertairier, but; if the
Dixie Theatre does this sort of
production in the future, it would
be extraordinary to keep in mind
that "A tenor on Broadway" needs
a lovely soprano. This would add
change of pace and focus, peaks
and valleys, a chance for dancing
and duets-plus a lovely soprano
would decorate the set nicely too.

The Carrabelle Volunteer Fire
Department (CVFD) will be mak-
ing room at the firehouse for a
new fire engine in 6 months or so.
CVFD ChiefKeith Mock expressed
his thanks and that of the depart-
ment after the City Commission-
ers approved a lease/purchase
from Hallmark. There were three
other bids from The Bank, Gulf
State Bank and Apalachicola
Bank, Carrabelle Branch.
The following are the terms:
The vehicle purchase price will be
$147,179.00. The length of the
contract will be eight years. Down
payment is $50,000. Interest will
be 4.91 percent and the amount
financed will be $91,179.00. A
representative from Hallmark said
that if they could, he would like
the approval right away as next
month the price was going up
$2,000.
Motion was made by Commis-
sioner Ed Saunders seconded by
Mayor Wilburn Curly Messer to
approve the lease/purchase offer
from Hallmark Federal Signal
Leasing.
The commissioners decided not to
accept the request for an exten-
sion of five more years on Waste
Management contract from local
Manager Rdy Cassaday: He said
he would continue with the same
price numbers and give them the
same options as the past five
years. Commissioner Raymond
Williams said that he thought it
would only be fair to accept bids.
Cassaday said that he could stay
at the same price and options if
he got the extension,' but he would
not be able to do so as he will have
to take it to the corporation.
None of the commissioners or the
people had complaints, they told
Cassaday they will give him a
three-month extension to give the
city and Cassaday time to be able
to engage in a bid process.
The United States Coastguard
was granted an extension of their
contract for three months. This
means they will be able to use the
town dock until December, or
until they can move over to the
other side of the harbor.

of Carrabelle Recreation Commit-
tee, requested permission to use
funds in the amount of $8851.57

Community Should Cooperate In

Saving The Children

Proof that a community can cooperate in solving a crime could easily
be found in headlines across the nation last week. The arrest of
Alejandro Avila completed one of the largest manhunts in Orange
County, CA history.
The FBI profiler who worked the case said it was "an absolute model"
of how to apprehend an elusive killer.
According to a reporter for Knight Ridder Tribune, from 6:45 p.m.
Monday, July 15, when Samantha Runnion was kidnapped, to 9:55
a.m. Friday, July 19, when Avila was arrested, federal, state and lo-
cal law enforcement agencies had logged more than 60,000 hours of
work to capture the suspect. Orange County Sheriff Michael Carona
said, "Forensic and significant investigative evidence makes us cer-
tain that he's-our man. .
Neighbors and community-minded citizens responded with tips and
help that assisted the law enforcement officers. The tip that eventu-
ally led to the arrest came in about noon Wednesday, from a person
who mentioned Avila by name, according to a sheriffs spokesman.
Law enforcement officials declined to give the news media the name
of that caller.
Avila was detained by investigators Thursday morning and questioned
in Orange County. Avila's status was changed from "detained" to "ar-
rested" at 9:55 a.m.
The FBI profiler who worked the case said, "it was a quick arrest in
my experience. The reason was the cooperation between law enforce-
ment, and the joint effort of the media and the public. It's an absolute
model of how this should work and can work."
The Orange County District Attorney's Office said Friday the 19th of
July that the case was under review by prosecutors and that Avila is
expected to be brought into court to face charges Tuesday, which was
July 23.
Citizens involved in -their community's well-being who are alert can
be of tremendous help to authorities in law enforcement. That in-
cludes terrorist activities, as well. There is no need to fear, but
rather, just be alert to what is going on around you.

County Residents
And "Experts" Crowd
Into Courtroom

Summer Camp
Land Use Change

Delayed

Delay Attributed to Need
for Amending County
Comprehensive Plan
Nearly 300 county residents and
representatives from out-of-
county environmental groups
crammed into the Franklin
County Courthouse for the Sum-
mer Camp land use hearing in
front of the Board of County Com-
missioners on Tuesday afternoon,
July 16th.
Within the first 30 minutes of the
hearing, Commissioner Jimmy
Mosconis stated "...There are too
many loose ends for us to pro-
ceed..." He then made a motion
to postpone the zoning decision
in favor of addressing the high
hazard issues and amending the
S county's Comprehensive Plan.
S "We may be talking 6 or 9 months
... It may be 30 days. Who knows.
There are just too many frayed
ends here ..." Commissioner
Cheryl Sanders agreed as she sec-
onded the Mosconis motion to
delay. The motion included in-
structions to Alan Pierce, county
planner, to meet with the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs and
develop a blueprint, or some op-
tions, on how to navigate through
the problems identified earlier.
The vote was unanimous.
Summer Camp is the proposed
development near the intersection
ol Highways 319 and 98 6on the
eastern end of Franklin County,
S occupying about 788 acres, with
a plan to rezone them from agri-
cultural to multi-use residential.
St. Joe Company wants to develop
the property into a residential "re-
treat" for vacationers using 499
. homes plus a hotel and about
25,000 square feet devoted to.
commercial purposes.'
County Planner, Alan Pierce,
opened the meeting with a brief
report on.the current comprehen-
sive plan of Franklin County
which was adopted by the County
Commission in 1990. He recited
a number of statistical bench-

marks occurring over the last 12
years, including a grand total of
more than 6400 building permits
being granted pursuant to that
plan since its inception. About
800 mobile homes and 100 com-
mercial buildings have been ap'-c'
-proved, along with 1000 new
homes that have been con-
structed since 1990. The balance
of the building permits have been
within county areas approved by
the Board of County CommissionL'
ers. There have been only four
large-scale land developments in
the past 12 years approved by the
Board and the Department of
Community Affairs.
In summarizing his 12-year-
'history of operations under the
current comprehensive plan,
Pierce concluded that develop-
ment in Franklin County thus far
"has been driven by the desire to,
be near the water."
With that stage set, chairperson
Eddie Creamer appealed to. the
audience to eliminate any per-
sonal attacks against arlyone, and
to use the speaker's time wisely
since most were limited to two
minutes each. He pointed to,a
stack of growing index cards that
contained the names of numer-
ous speakers desiring to address
the county commission.
The St. Joe representative doing
most of the speaking was William
Buzzett who described generally.
the summer camp project. He
pointed out that the company has
been very responsive to citizen
involvement and consequently
their proposal did not contain any
references to the once-sought
marina near Turkey Point,. nor
was there any plan for a boat
launch site. He said, "We're pre-
pared to limit access to the wa-
ter," a statement that rang some
"irony since earlier, at a Commis- .i
sion meeting the Board was la-,
menting the lack of water access
throughout the county, but espe-
cially at St. George Island.
Buzzett did acknowledge that St.
Joe has a contract to purchase
the Alligator Point Marina but the
deal has not closed yet. He said
this was "... the worst kept secret,
in Franklin County." Earlier, the
St. Joe Vice President of Public
Relations would not acknowledge
any deal for the purchase when
the Chronicle made a telephone
inquiry. Buzzett discussed their
plans for an advanced wastewa-
ter facility and drain fields art

company owned uplands north of
the development. He also an-
nounced that flood insurance pre-
miums were not on any planned
increase contradicting statements
made by the county's Emergency
Management Director, Tim
Turner. Other evidence was later
presented to the Board indicating
that FEMA officials has not con-
sidered eliminating flood insur-
ance in the area contemplated for
Summer Camp.
Buzzett also discussed the nego-
tiations with the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) indicat-
ing that their discussions were
arriving at solutions except for the
controversial stickler, that of the
high hazard zones,
DCA representative Charlie
Gautier reported "We have been
making very good progress on the
site-specific issues..." But, he also
stated that DCA and St. Joe have
not been able to resolve the
coastal high hazard issues. He
thought with two month's inten-
sive work on amending the Com-
prehensive Plan, or structuring an
intent to amend it, that a solu-
tion could be found.
Other comments given at the
hearing included a rehash of the
marine laboratory issue, now dis-
carded as an issue, and claims
that St. Joe company was solely
interested in a profit motive. The
fact that the company is chartered
to show some progress in profit
margins and appeal to the invest-
ment community is hardly a rev-
elation but the condemnations of
profit continued to be made. No
evidence that profit motive pro-
duced certain outcomes, good or
bad, was presented. The mere

existence of such a motive was
enough for condemning the
project in the view of those rais-
ing the issue.
One difficulty with the high haz-
ard zone issue is the fact that
there have been three definitions
of that condition on different
maps used by different parties.
The concerns expressed by David
McLain, Executive Director of the
Apalachicola Bay and
Riverkeeper, Inc. organization
seemed to address the major is-
sues. He said, "Our concerns are
now fundamentally grouped
around three issues..."
"1. Sensitive Location. The pro-
posed project is within the Alliga-
tor Harbor Aquatic Preserve; im-
portant water resources in and
adjacent.to this site include fresh-
water wetlands, sea-grass and
shellfish beds, salt marshes and
near shore habitat. Groundwater
discharges directly to the bay.
Prevention and minimization of
impacts to surface waters and
wetlands is critical. This desig-
nated area is a "nursery" habitat
for many species-from Manatee
to sea trout and Gulf grouper.
Lacking real economic alterna-
tives, our county is dependent on
the productivity of its near-shore
habitat, whether it be the com-
mercial oyster beds west of
Apalachicola, the marshes and
flats of East Bay, or these
sea-grass beds in the aquatic pre-


serve east of Carrabelle. All'are
critically important Scalloping
and recreational fishing in the
general area is now and will con-
tinue to play a prominent role in
the future economic picture of
Franklin County. Small wonder
people would want to live in such
a productive and pristine area.
But we need to take the greatest
care not to degrade the very things
that bring us here."
"2. Changing Scope. The pro-
posed land-use change from
agricultural to mixed-use-
residential is so loosely defined
that almost any modifications St.
Joe/ARVIDA might choose to
make to its development plan for
Summer Camp in future could be
accommodated..." "...The marina
was subsequently deleted, and a
central boat dock, plus a 60-unit
hotel with restaurant and other
commercial facilities added. So, if
the County forwards without de-
lay the proposed changes to the
comprehensive plan to accommo-
date "mixed use residential" with-
out a complete understanding Of
the scope of the development and
a detailed assessment of the im-
pact of that defined scope on the
infrastructure and unique habi-
tat of the area, it will be estab-
lishing a very unhappy precedent
for all future development in the
county."

sider carefully these densities
when we put them in the high
hazard areas. Those areas are'
touchy in the area of emergency
management issues. We don't
want to see you put the public in
harm's way."
Next speaker was Gathana Parm-
enas. "I have some concerns
about the Coastal High Hazard
Ordinance. Partly because it
doesn't seem to embody what our
very own town Commissioners
say privately." She said Mayor
Messer himself had told her that
he did not envision any permit
given beyond four stories. She felt
that if that was what they meant
it should be put into the ordi-,
nance.
"Other things are missing in that
document. and as Mr: Turner
pointed out we haven't got any-
thing specific about the density
for commercial or industrial in
that PUD."
She went on to say "I can see that
the language permitted the reaLi:
estate practice of 'slipping.' It
means that we are inviting people
to speculatively put contracts on
paper, then come before the com-
mission to see if they can get it
rezoned to something more valu-.;
able before they purchase it. This
is against any good planning pre-
cept anywhere in the country. It.
is not a good thing to encourage;
it. can lead to a lot of speculative
land action."
Jim Lycett was next to voice his
feelings on the matter saying,
"Gentlemen, the initiative before
you tonight is flawed beyond de-'
scription. It lacks scruples, vision
and heart."
"No developer could have written
a more pro-development ordi-
nance, in fact, developers and
their agents have commenced this
process and they alone seem to
have the ear of the majority of the
commission. The ordinance begs
for bribery and invites all kinds
of corruption and back room deal-'
ing."
"Even the respectful astute and
successful Mr. Ben Watkins, an
eminent lawyer in his own right,
politely warned you all that this
is trouble waiting to happen and
you have taken no heed."
"Why are we opening the door to
outside developers, millionaires
all, whose driving motivation is
money, to come into our town to
rape. and pillage at will?"
"Why do we have any obligation
to maximize profits for develop-,,
ers at the expense of our town's
character and our citizens way' of-,
life?" ',, .,, .. :; -,. ,, i :, ., :,..
"Why indeed you all, seemingly,
granting every developer's reauestw'


but turning a deaf ear to con-
cerned citizens.?"
"The present county's regulations
should be Carrabelle's regula-
tions. If you don't agree, then at
least let the people decide. A ref-
erendum in the November elec-
tions would cost the city 1000 to
1500."
"Gentlemen. Please pause here for
a second. Franklin County and
Carrabelle are special- places.
Passing the ordinance in its
present form would be letting the
genie out of the bottle. Opening
Pandora's box. Developers will
come in here and strip mine the
Pearl of the Panhandle until we
won't be able to recognize our own
homes. Have a referendum and let
the people decide."
Raymond Massey was brief and
to the point. He said, "if you com-
missioners allow anything taller
than three stories to be built, the
Fire Department would need a
ladder truck." He said, "We need
to protect the people. They would
be way up there in the air and you
couldn't protect them. That's all I
bihave to say."
The last speaker was Pat Maier.
She was still bothered about the
comment he had made at a pre-
vious meeting that he did not care
how high a building is as long as
'it didn't fall on his property. The
mayor reacted saying, "That was
a joke. Me and Ben Watkins were
;kidding each other."
She started by saying "That is
exactly the problem. With politics,
and CEO's of large companies
who are concerned only for them-
selves and not for their constitu-
ents or their employees, you were
elected to serve the citizens of this
whole city, and you need to give
due consideration to their con-
cerns."
She said that she ad another
concern in that a vife of one of
the commissioners had said,
"those condos are a done deal"
and another woman who told her
That these were her condos. "She
'seemed confident that she would
get them." Maier said. there
seemed to be a lack of ethics
there.
She then went on to close by say-
ing, "Let the people decide how
: they want to have their town look_


Eastpoint Water and Sewer


The Eastpoint Water and Sewer Board b
met in Eastpoint on July 18th at 4
p.m. The Board received an oral re-
port from Jeff Hinott, representing 01
Preble-Rish on the Eastpoint Water
and Sewer contract. The expansion of
the .system is now projected to be
"substantially complete" by August
15th, and at that time, the Eastpoint
Board plans to request additional
hookups from the Dept. of Environ-
mental Protection. The system has


in the future, what is the big rush,
anyway?"
The Carrabelle Area Chamber of
Commerce Directors expressed
their misgivings in a letter from
the President Ron Truetel and
asked to have it read into the
record.
Mr. and Mrs. Dercks had also sent
a letter begging the commission-
ers to keep the character and
quality of life for the town and to
participate in long term visioning.
After the commissioners had al-
lowed the citizens to speak, City
Attorney Doug Gaidry said that
the citizens had misread what was
to happen. He said that they ob-
viously thought this was the com-
plete ordinance and it was writ-
ten specifically for the proposed
Mariner's Landing project. "It is a
generic ordinance and each
project will be specific to itself."
He said all projects would be
taken on a site by site and each
one would have to come before the
commission in their role of Plan-
ning and Zoning, and will allow
the citizens to have input at each
separate hearing.
The next regular meeting will be
held on August 1, 2002.

Timber Island Yacht Club's 8th Annual

Youth Fishing Tournament Successful

By Tom Campbell
Tim and Christina Saunders' Pirate's Landing Marina on Timber Is-
land in Carrabelle was again host to a successful Youth Fishing Tour-
nament, this one the 8th Annual. Each year, the Saunders gener-
ously open their work hall and docks to the tournament, sponsored
by the Timber Island Yacht Club. Each year, the event has regularly
seen excellent attendance of children up to 15 years of age.
This year, 108 young people from Franklin County participated. Par-
ticipants competed in seven categories: catfish, croaker, flounder.
whiting, trout, pinfish and "wild card".
The tournament was generously sponsored by many Franklin County
businesses and private donations, All participants received a T-shirt
commemorating the event, a participation trophy and a free lunch.
Timber Island Yacht Club's Commodore Jim Bryan presented each
winner with a trophy for first, second and third place, as well as a.
rod and reel and a tackle box. Each young person had a chance to
feel "like a winner."
Just after 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, the winners were announced
as follows:


Category First/Weight of Fish


Second


Catfish Shawn Chisolm/5.582 lb. Eli Dean


Croaker Khrystal Davis/0.704 lb.


School Board from Page 1

Jeff Weiner. Principal of the
Apalachicola Bay Charter School, who
had been rumored as a replacement
for Butler at Apalachicola High, told
the board that the ABC School Board
of Directors have created a ninth po-
sition on their board for members of
the Franklin County School Board.
The position would rotate, with a
member of the county board serving
on the ABC Board a certain length of
time.
Weiner said the offer is "an effort to
consolidate our efforts-meaning the
Charter School and Franklin County
School Board-in order to effectively
communicate and make realistic
growth plans." The popular ABC
school head told the board "We don't
need another school building, school
bus, or a kitchen ... we need to com-
municate effectively for the kids." The
position would be non-voting, said
Weiner, "In order to preserve your ob-
jectivity and to ensure against any
conflict of interest on your individual

part. No action was taken on Wein
proposal.

Thanks to Barbara Rittweger for compiling the information.

and grandparents, and ended with a group photo of smiling winners'
faces.

Fishing Litigation from Page 1

Grix completed his education by "re-directing buy-back funds to earn
two college degrees in business with some awards for his scholar-
ship. Under state statute, he is entitled to interviews for state em-
ployment but since his graduation in 1998, he has not been inter-
viewed. In his view, "...Private industry in South Florida is very preju-
diced against commercial fishermen..." He cited an example of the
Palm Beach Post, "...They will not print anything positive about com-
mercial fishermen in their newspaper..."
Grix related a story about an article that had been written expressing
several points-of-view in the net limitation issue, from the vantage
point of recreational and commercial fishing interests. He learned
later that the editor and publisher of Florida Sportsman called the
reporter to account, and sometime later, she was no longer employed
by the magazine. Carl Wickstrum is credited for opening the cam-
paign for the Net Limitation Amendment in the early 1990s.
Grix had written an article arguing that the Net Limitation Amend-
ment denied the poor people access to the fishing resource, a civil
rights issue, he argued. That was published as early as 1994, in the
Palm Beach Gazette.
Grix has experienced a number of arrests, court appearances, and
investigations since the early days of the net limitation prosecutions
by the Florida Marine Patrol and the FWCC. His single-spaced, type-
written brief was 5-1/2 pages long, containing a narrative of each
incident. He described his first "encounter" with an investigator from
the FWCC who responded to the Grix inquiries about his arrests. He
was arrested for using a cast net, but the form was not filled out until
later. Then, the arresting officer filled in a narrative that Grix denied
was true. He obtained both copies of the arresting report showing the
variances between the two arrest forms. Grix was also claiming that
when another officer arrived on the scene of his arrest, they sepa-
rated Grix from his younger son, and made an offer to entrap other
fishermen, but this did not materialize.
When the investigation was started weeks later, the investigator tele
phoned Grix that "...there was nothing in the file." The records had
disappeared. Grix still held the .two versions of his arrest forms. When
he complained to the FWCC, no one took any action.
"...The only net they don't follow the Amendment or the Supreme
Court ruling...is the cast net. They do it arbitrarily and I think they've
done it from the beginning when they arrested me because they knew
it was a false arrest. Twenty-eight days after they arrested me, they
tried to change (the cast net) to a circle. We successfully fought before
the Governor and Legislature and kept (the cast net) a cone for three
years. The Marine Patrol still refused to measure it as a cone, as the
Constitution said. They arbitrarily did what they wanted to..." Others
advised Grix that he and his sons should never have been arrested.
S"...Some head honcho in Tallahassee is making up his own laws..."
The case was eventually dismissed against Grix.
A Lieutenant from the Jupiter office of the Marine Patrol said to Grix,
"I don't care what the Supreme Court said. They don't know what
they're doing. If you throw the nets again, I'll arrest you." Grix related
this again, indicating he "said that as of four months ago..." Thus,
one narrative of non-uniform enforcement of the Net Limitation "rules"
came to an end, but leaving many lingering questions among fisher-
men who continue to conclude that the state agencies are ignoring
the rules that permit the use of cast nets.
The meetings being scheduled among fishermen in all areas of Florida
are designed to send an alert to the various industries that in the
view of many, the fishing community is entitled to damages because
of numerous enforcement errors and problems connected with the
Net Limitation Amendment.
Ronald Crum, one of the organizers from Wakulla County, insists
that the goal of the Net Limitation Amendment is supported by his
organization, but they seek to correct overzealous and illegal enforce-
ment of FWCC "rules" that may not be legal. The social and political
landscape of the commercial fishing communities are littered with
such narratives, some of which may become grist in the mill being
established to grind out damages suffered unnecessarily in those
commercial fishing communities. Thus far, there is evidence indicat-
ing that there have been heavy-handed and non-uniform enforce-
ment of FWCC rules, and blatant distortions against commercial fish-
ing interests in the metropolitan Florida press.

APTA And APECO Have Concerns

About Summer Camp


By Rene Topping
Both Alligator Point Taxpayers
Association (APTA) and the
Apalachee Conservancy (APECO)
have concerns about the pro-
posed Summer Camp Subdivision
on the Gulf. APTA President Line
Barnett said that he had concerns
about the high hazard area and
its relation to flood insurance,
among others.
Although two representatives of
Arvida, Doug Delano and Billy
Buzzett, spoke to each of the or-
ganizations back to back on July
13, they had to leave without a
clean approval, although the two
organizations were encouraged by
the way Arvida had worked with
them on such matters as a ma-
rina.
Billy Buzzett said that the project
will provide its own water and
sewer. The plants for both utili-
ties and the spray field will be on
St. Joe land that is north of the
project.
He also said that the beach will
not be a private beach quoting
that in Florida all beaches are
public.
The issue of High Hazard Zone
was brought up. Tim Turner who
is in charge of Franklin County
Emergency Services has asserted
that the Summer Camp is build-
ing in a coastal hazard area, and
has presented a document, a High
Hazard Surge Map.
Barnett stated that in his opin-
ion if it proves out that the County
Commission approves the Arvida
to sell lots and build homes in
what is declared to be a high haz-
ard area, they may be violating
their own comprehensive plan
besides putting a lot of residents
to lose or at least pay more for
their flood insurance.
It seems there are three maps of
where the high hazard coastline
is inFranklin County. One is the
Florida Surge Atlas, drawn up by
FEMA, STATE OF FLORIDA and
THE U.S ARMY CORPS. Then
there is the Franklin County Map
that was voted for at a May 16
meeting of the members of the
Apalachicola Regional Planning
and yet another at the commu-
nity college. All three of the.
Franklin County Members,
Kendall Wade, Jack Taylor and
Raymond Williams voted for the
map that includes only the bar-
rier island in the HIGH HAZARD
ZONE.
The map, voted for at the Regional
Planning Council meeting shows
only the Barrier Islands of Dog
Island, St. George Island, Little St.
George and St Vincent in the high
.hazard area.
Carrabelle has already made a
new resolution that says that Dog
Island is the only High Hazard
Zone in their area.
Vicki Barnett said that she be-
lieved that APTA should take an
official stance and wait until
FEMA has made a resolution on
this matter. This was taken to be
the position of the APTA members
and a motion to that effect was
passed.

tember at the Franklin County
Senior Citizens Building.
The city approved the following
bills from BDI Engineering Ser-
vices on Carrabelle CTST Side-
walk Project for $2,600. It was
paid out of general funds until the
funding came in. BDI also were
.approved on invoice 67448 for
Technical Services on the Sani-
tary Sewer System for May 2002.
BDI was approved for Professional
Engineering Services on a Small
Disadvantaged Grant Program for
$100,899.94 and BDI was ap-
proved for invoice 67351 for
US98/Carrabelle for $5,000.
City Attorney Douglas Gaidry was
approved for $330. Royal Ameri-
can Construction was approved
for $108,653 for Sewer Construc-
tion.
The next regular meeting will be
held on August 1, 2002.


APECO Consultant Paul Johnson
stated the following concerns:
Location of (1) Community Dock
Launch area. (2) Adequate wet-
land, storm water management
and other water quality consider-
ations to avoid degradation of the
Alligator Harbor Aquatic Preserve.
(3) Location of development in a
potential coastal hazard area and
the affect on property owners
throughout Franklin County. (4)
Realignment of Highway 98 and
intersection and relocation of Hwy
98 north. (5) Update and revise
Franklin County's Comprehen-
sive Plan and Land Use Map
through a community wide "vi-
sioning process."
He said that potential Positions
for the APECO Board consider-
ation and action:
1. Support and /or do not object
to Summer Camp Land Use Plan
Amendment.
2. Support and/or do not object
to Land Use Plan Amendment
Project as long as certain specific
provisions are addressed on the
issues above prior to Tuesday's
meeting.
3. Request the County, DCA, and
St. Joe more time to resolve the
outstanding issues outlined
above.
,4. Formally object to Summer
Camp Land Use Plan Amendment
as is, and consider legal challenge
if approved by Franklin County
and DCA.
The Board moved to support APTA
on concern (3) on the high haz-
ard issue.
They also voted to delay judgment
on the moving of US 98 until stud-
ies are released.
The board said that they were
encouraged at the way ARVIDA
had gone along with some re-
quests. They all realized that this
is a big issue that will affect ev-
eryone in the county.
Paul Johnson then said when
asked to sum up his opinion on
the Summer Camp issue. "It's a
rough one. Frequently more time
will help in the resolution of this
issue. I would not want to have to
vote on it."
Franklin County Commissioner
Cheryl Sanders said, "My hope is
that the County Commission
would consider, not just all St.
James Island but the entire
county as a whole."
