The St. Joe Co. Transfer Triples

Size Of Bald Point State Park

Company Has Helped Protect Over 140,000 Acres
In Four Years
The St. Joe Company, on May 21, 2003, ceremonially turned over to
the State of Florida 2,851 acres of coastal pine flatwoods, scrub for-
est, grasslands, lakes and bayou streams for permanent preserva-
tion as an addition to Bald Point State Park, located in Franklin
County. This transfer of land, completed in December 2002, more
than triples Bald Point to over 4,000 acres. Working with The Florida
Department of Environmental Protection, The Nature Conservancy.
other government agencies and responsible environmental groups.
St. Joe has now helped to protect over 140,000 acres over the last
four years, an average of nearly 3,000 acres preserved per month.
The rectangle-shaped tract includes the remnants of Native Ameri-
can villages and burial mounds. It also includes one-mile square
Tucker Lake, an estuarine lake with a unique eco-system created by
the unusual mixture of salt water and fresh water, and provides a
buffer that guards the Ochlockonee Bay and Alligator Harbor from
development.
State officials commended the continuing environmental commitment
of St. Joe, which has added significantly to Torreya State Park and
Tate's Hell State Forest and provided protection for the Apalachicola
River and basin, the Wacissa River and Snipe Island.
Several dignitaries addressed the approximately 150 persons who had
gathered for the dedication beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the point. Billy
Buzzett, Director of Strategic Planning, St. Joe Co., gave the Welcome
and introduced each speaker after Pastor McNeely (Mission By the
Sea, Alligator Point) gave the Invocation. Cheryl Sanders spoke briefly:
"This is such a great honor to be here ... This is a great
day in Franklin County ... To be able to look back here.
behind us, an area that I used to use when I was a child.
My daddy brought me out here mullet fishing many, many
years ago. And, to see it being preserved for that same
use, at the same time, we're developing in Franklin County
in a controlled growth...and protecting our environment.
What more can you say?"

addressed the group:
"This particular property is very valuable because it is
the home of a number of endangered species ... It is the
home of the Florida black bear. You can find ospreys,
falcons, bald eagles ... The beaches are nesting areas for
sea turtles..."
Bob Rhodes, Executive Vice President (St. Joe Co.) made the follow-
ing remarks:
"Franklin County is important to us. We consider our-
selves to be the county's partner. We're in a long term
partnership. As the county's partner, we're well aware of
the tremendous responsibility that comes with being both
the state's and this county's largest private land owner.
And, part of our responsibility is to consider the public

interest as we chart the future use of our land holdings.
We take this responsibility very seriously. We also that
know that the only way St. Joe will succeed is if we all
succeed. Our futures are bound together. And, together,
we must do all we can to preserve, protect and enhance
our quality of life..."
Paul Johnson, Special Projects Director (Apalachee Ecological Con-
servancy) made the following observations:
"Our mission is responsible development of this coast, to
protect the environment. We work in partnership with
other ecological groups, communities, developers and
others, we've been fairly effective in making sure our
natural resources and our heritage is protected. ...Our
culture has only been around a couple of hundred years.
But, the Indians lived in harmony with the environ-
ment for hundreds of years ...They respected and lived in
harmony with the natural resources of the area. I
think we can do the same if we think properly about natu-
ral resources and how to connect the values they had to
our people, not just socially, environmentally, but eco-
nomically as well ..." '
Line Barnett, President of the Alligator Point Taxpayers Association
also spoke:
"...We all know we live in a special place. We may not
always remember that part of what makes it special is
that large tracts of undeveloped land lay on both sides of
370. This area supports an abundance of wildlife, which
is fast disappearing from a large part of Florida."
After the dedication ceremonies, a lunch catered by Chef Eddie o
Apalachicola's Magnolia Grill, was served. Featured were jumbo

Eastpoint Water And Sewer Board

Gets Earful From Customers


The Eastpoint Water and Sewer
Board heard from a large num-
ber of customers at their May
15th meeting, stimulated by a cir-
culating petition complaining
about a proposal to hire an "engi-
neer" slated to be paid over
$50,000. Nearly 60 persons
jammed themselves into the
board's small offices, and their
meeting room as each respondent
spoke his mind on a wide-ranging
list of topics well beyond the ini-
tial complaint circulated by peti-
tion.
During the course of the meeting,
the Board admitted to advertising
for a qualified person to help the
water system but they emphati-
cally denied a charge that they
were planning to hire an engineer
at a high wage.
One respondent spoke of the need
for a new well, and complained
about the odor of the water. An-
other said, "It smells like a hog
pen, sometimes." Yet another: "We
need some more equipment for
these boys to use instead of hir-
ing an engineer to run the sys-
tem." Who is the instigator for hir-
ing someone? GeorgeAllen said,
"It was me." He said he was look-
ing at the whole system and where
"we're going in the next five years."
The discussion also moved into
rising water and sewer bills and
hardships on Eastpoint residents.
The subject of consumption wells
arose in regard to the St. George
Water Management Company,
but this was way off the subject
of the meeting.
Many stated that they buy their
drinking water instead of getting
it out of the Eastpoint tap. An-
other recommended sending cur-
rently employed personnel back
to school and putting any extra
dollars into the hardware of the
current system. Others com-
plained of the chlorine odor. "We
need to address the problems we
have before considering hiring
any one else," another opined. "A
lot of people don't even know that
this meeting is taking place."
Speaking of the current emolov-
ees, another said, "They work
their butts off. I feel that there are
some board members that have
already made up their minds, that
they are going to hire a manager.
I hope I'm wrong."
George Allen said, "We're not hir-
ing anyone today." That did not
seem to satisfy the assembled
group. Jim Sisung added:
"I'm very much concerned that
we're spending all these hours ...
yours and ours, debating an is-
sue which has not even been
voted on by the board ... We voted
by a 3:1 vote ... to advertise. That
was a legitimate decision for the
board to make for the reasons
they discussed and decided upon.
We did nothing improper. But, we
have not made the decision to
employ anybody or even to have
the job..."
Then another raised the question
of retirement and contributions to
their retirement fund.
George Allen spoke on the issue
of hiring a qualified person:
"My feeling, and I'm speaking just
for myself ... When we talked
about this position, we talked
about it in workshop originally.
Then, in the next meeting we had,
I think that's when we brought it
up to vote on it... Miss Bonnie was
opposed to this. It appears Mr.
Sisung is opposed to this ... The
other three of us talked about, if
we could find the right person that
could work in the system, that
could do this job, could fill the bill,
and if we could pay for it, if do in
fact have the money ... the likeli-
hood is high that we could prob-
ably do it. But, I think it is also
part of an open, public forum that
we listen to people coming in ...
and we take your information in,
and it helps us formulate our de-
cision. I don't know that I could
just tell you, absolutely, positively

Former Chronicle contributing writer Thomas Emory Campbell died
Friday evening, May 23, at Rockdale Hospital in Conyers, Georgia.
Tom was 67 years old, born on June 9, 1935. He was the son of
Joseph Emory Campbell and Mary Lou Brake Campbell of Georgia.
Tom joined the Chronicle in 1997 and lived in Franklin and Leon
County since that time, .until his health care required that he relo-
cate to Conyers, Georgia last fall, 2002. There, he was convalescing
after surgical operations for varicose veins at a nursing home where
he could be closer to his family. Consultations with several physi-
cians brought forward a recommendation to remove his left leg above
the knee because his wounds were not healing and infections were
continuing. Shortly after the amputation, 'he told me that the pain
long associated with the problem for over one year had diminished
considerably, and that he was looking forward to rehabilitation with
a possible artificial leg. His voice was strong over the telephone and
he, more than once, indicated his hope to return to the Panhandle
and continue his work. However, within a few days of'recuperation,
his lungs began filling with fluids to the point that a respirator was
required to keep him breathing.
Sandra, his sister, reported that he was heavily sedated for a short
time and had made some improvement so the respirator was removed.
While completely lucid, he acknowledged the choices to be made, and
decided he would not continue with the respirator, nor accept a feed-
ing tube. Shortly thereafter, he expired.


Signing copies of his first novel
Tom Campbell wrote almost all of the performing arts reviews for the
Chronicle and a number of interpretative pieces for the paper since
1997. (He spent many weeks in area hospitals with varicose veins.
complicated with congestive heart failure and diabetes.) He was presi-
dent of the Panhandle Poets and Writers Association, and active in
the Panhandle Players organization. Last fall, he was given the op-
portunity to produce his play about John Gorrie, Apalachicola native
who was credited with the first air conditioning system used to treat
fever patients. He directed the play often with considerable pain in
his legs but he was steadfast in bringing his work to the local stage;
possibly at some personal risk to his health. In my visits with him, he
often complained about the pain in his legs and feet. Finally, while a
resident at the Port St. Joe nursing home, he was taken to a Panama
City hospital, and shortly thereafter, to Conyers, Georgia, to be near
his sister.
He attended Greensboro High School and graduated from Mercer
University in Macon in 1957; received his Honorable Discharge from
the United States Air Force in 1963: and performed on stage in New
York, Los Angeles, Flat Rock, NC, Hilton Head Island, SC, and At-
lanta, GA. He was a member of Actors Equity, the professional union.
He directed theatre in those cities and others. He authored several
books including the "Burning of Greensborough" and wrote numer-
ous young people's plays, and a play on the life of John Gorrie Tho-
mas was one of the founders of The Little Greene Theatre Company,
a member of the First Baptist Church of Greensboro and Agape Sun-
day School Mass. His last job was as a contributing writer with the
Franklin Chronicle in Eastpoint, Florida.

Solid Waste Director
Van Johnson asked the Board to
start the process of amending the
county litter ordinance to include
a provision that would make it a
violation to dispose of any waste
at the recycling sites, other than
waste that the recycling program
has targeted for recycling. The
Board so approved.
Mr. Johnson said, "I would like to
call the board's attention to the
rising problem of illegal dumping
throughout the county and espe-
cially at the recycling drop off lo-
cations. Attached to this report
are pictures that highlight the
problems encountered by solid

if the Chairman and/or the Clerk
could call and/or write our legis-

restore the funding for these
grants. ACTION NEEDED: Motion
authorizing the Chairman or the
Clerk to call or write our legisla-
tors anti urge them to work to re-
store the funding for the recycling
grants. The Board approved.

Director Of Administrative
Services
The Board was informed that the
state is preparing the bid packets
for Timber Island. The, minimum
bid is 6.4 million dollars for 60
acres of land.
There is a problem with over-use
of the Timber Island Boat Ramp.
Too many boats are trying to ac-
cess the ramp and trailers are
being parked in places interfer-
ing with existing businesses. I
contacted the state about pur-
chasing or leasing some of Tim-
ber Island but now that is all go-
ing out for purchase the state
does not want to hold any back
for Franklin County.
Chris Clark is to analyze the situ-
ation and try to develop a realis-
tic parking plan, which will in-
clude identified No Parking Areas
in front of these businesses and
have the Sheriff write tickets to

having to spend an extra amount
of time cleaning up the sites, only
to repeat the task the next day.
They are steadily encountering
large quantities of prohibited
waste at the Lanark Village,
Carrabelle and St. George Island
locations. The illegal dumping is
occurring even through the
county provides such services as
landfill amnesty days and
right-of-way debris removal."
The County's Litter Control Ordi-
nance does not specifically ad-
dress illegal dumping at the recy-
cling sites. Therefore, I recom-
mend this morning that the Board
takes the necessary measures to
amend the ordinance. There need
to be a provision that makes it a
violation to dispose of any waste
at the recycling sites, other than
waste that the recycling program
has targeted for recycling. Fur-
ther, both Florida Litter Law and
the County Ordinance have pro-
visions that allow a county de-
partment head to designate a
county employee, to enforce these
specific laws. The employee does
not have to be a sworn law en-
forcement officer.
Therefore, I am also recommend-
ing. that the Board, allow me to
designate existing animal control
officers to enforce this specific
provision. Animal Control person-
nel have already undergone ex-
tensive training in issuing civil
citations, and in courtroom de-
meanor. In some communities
they already serve in both capaci-
ties. Also, the use of Board per-
sonnel, will ensure a dedicated
division to enforce the litter laws.
Mr. Johnson added:
"Both the Florida House and Sen-
ate have eliminated funding for
the recycling grants in their re-
spective budgets. Should this re-
main, the county solid waste bud-
get will experience a $130,000,
short fall. While the opportunities
to restore this funding still exist.
To make it happen, we must raise
the awareness of the importance
of these grants. Therefore, it is
vital that the Board let our legis-
lators know how important the
recycling grants are for Franklin

The Board briefly discussed Alli-
gator Point beach access point
claimed by a neighbor to not be
for the general public but only for
property owners on the harbor
side of Alligator Point. Public
records do not support the neigh-
bor. Ms. Sabrina McMillan may be
present to discuss her concerns.
She has previously installed "No
Parking" signs and placed fenc-
ing in the right-of-way of Chip
Morrison Drive to keep people
from parking and thus using the
beach access point. Her conten-
tion is that the public gets stuck
on the side of the road and want
her to help pull them out, or they
park in their yard because the
shoulder is so soft.
The Board approved sending
Chris Clark down there to see if
limited parking can be arranged.
The Board adopted a resolution
to amend the Local Mitigation
Strategy to include the purchase
of the St. George Island boat ramp
site. The adoption of the Resolu-
tion will give us additional points
on the application. The Alligator
Point site is already listed in the
LMS as part of the need to relo-
cate Alligator Point Road.
The Board was informed that the
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) wants a complete
Wetland Resource Permit applica- ,
tion before they will officially com-
ment on the county's request to
place spoil on the Eastpoint
breakwater. This letter appears to
be a step backward since previ-
ous communication with DEP
proved that at least one more au-
thorization for open water dis- '
posal had been agreed to by DEP.
The Planning and Zoning Com-
mission reviewed a number of is-
sues of concern. Some of these
issues will be discussed over time.
but others need more immediate
attention. I have discussed this
list with current Chairperson Gail
Dodds and I hope to have a work-
shop with the Commission soon
on these issues.

mission Board to present the re-
port to the Board of County Com-
mission to give relief to Alan.
8. Well issues and growth in Alli-
gator Point and the need for a new

10. The wrecked trailer issue in
the County in its entirety.
11. The need to have workshops

Weeks ago the Board agreed to let
the Chamber of Commerce begin
to develop an optional economic
development element for the comp
plan. The Board will of course re-
view any element added to the
comprehensive plan. Ms. Anita
Grove, Chamber Director, would
like the Board to appoint the fol-
lowing individuals to assist her in
working on the economic devel-
opment element. They are: Helen
Spohrer, Cliff Butler, Alice Collins,
Curt Blair, Paul Marxson, David
Butler, Mark Friedman, Dave
McLain, Don Ashley, Jerry Th-
ompson, Joe Knight and Betty
Croom. The Board approved the
nominations.

Future Trends In Franklin
County
Professor Lance DeHaven Smith
made a power point presentation
to the Commissioners on "Future
Trends in Franklin County."
Using U.S. Census Data, the pro-
fessor concluded that Franklin
County populations are getting
older eventually anticipating a I
larger demand for goods and ser-
vices for older residents. Older
Americans, generally, are moving
out of the urban areas and into
rural areas, raising additional
implications for healthcare ser-
vices and related infrastructure.

Tom Campbell left many friends in the Panhandle to mourn over his
loss. He once wrote that he "thoroughly enjoys his job" and living on
the Gulf Coast. Even while in health care settings, and nursing homes,
he continued his observations in writing for the Chronicle with a com-
plimentary word on his care and surroundings. He has been sorely
missed on this paper since the beginning of his hospitalizations.

Tom Campbell: A Tough Act To Follow

By Dawn Evans Radford
As president of the Panhandle Poets and Writers (PPAW), I try to fill
the shoes of an honored and admired predecessor, Tom Campbell.
The shoes are too roomy, far too big for me, but respecting Tom's love
for and dedication to the group, I am committed to try.
Tom Campbell's dream founded the PPAW and nurtured it through
its early years. One of its four original members, Carolyn Hatcher.
now lives in Panama City where she belongs to a writers' group and
prepares her first novel for publication, a novel that Tom encouraged
and supported.
"The writers' group was Tom's idea from the start," Ms. Hatcher said.
"He said, 'Let's have a meeting," and we met one morning. That's how
PPAW began, with Tom, Rene Topping, Van Waulk, and myself" To-
day the group has grown to include published poets, novelists, and
essayists, as well as song and memoirs writers.
Ms. Hatcher said that PPAW was Tom's dream. "We are so proud that
Tom was our president. A sweet guy, he kept us up on news and
gossip.. He said that the Forgotten Coast was his home and whenever
wanted to leave it and the friends he had made here."
One of those friends, Kathleen Heveran of Lanark Village. is
vice-president of PPAW. Tom encouraged her to write memoirs of her
early years in New York City. Ms. Heveran admired this "gentle man
(that's two words) who loved beauty and was full of warmth. He loved
flowers, was always willing to help other people. He embodied every-
thing that is important to a human being. He made a big, big differ-
ence in my life. He was beautiful inside. He brought beauty to a lot of
people, and wrote his own play while doing that."
While encouraged by Tom, group members had encouraged him in
his play about Dr. John Gorrie, a work written and read scene by
scene at monthly PPAW meetings. Fellow writers attended and cel-
ebrated its production at the Dixie Theatre in 2002. In honor of his
accomplishments in his work and in PPAW, members recently dedi-
cated the 2003 presentation of our own writing to Tom Campbell.
Playwright, actor, director, and producer, Tom Campbell was prepared
for death, his final curtain. His dearest friend, Kathleen Heveran.
corresponded with him after he left the Panhandle to be with family
in his final days. "He told me he was tired., He was grateful that God
had been good to him. He came to a new closeness with his family
near the end. I miss him very, very much."

Remembering Tom Campbell

By Elizabeth Sisung
President Panhandle Players
Shortly after the Panhandle Players presented their first Holiday Re-
vue in December of 2001 Rex Partington, of the Dixie Theatre, asked
many of the cast members if we would do a "read through" of a play
by Tom Campbell called "The Ice Man". We all sat in chairs arranged
in a semi-circle in the orchestra section of the theatre and proceeded
to read our parts. Afterward we discussed the play's strengths, weak-
nesses, and changes which we thought might enhance the play. Tom
listened intently, took notes, asked questions and then took his play
and went back to the drawing board to do the first of several rewrites.
Before this occasion most of us knew that Tom's background included
acting, singing and directing professionally, what we did not know
was that he was not only a writer but had developed a scholarly in-
terest in the life of John Gorrie, the inventor of the ice machine. Tom
was able to have his play performed in October of 2002, the anniver-
sary month of the birth of John Gorrie.
Royce Rolstad III, one of the actors in the performance expressed
shock upon learning of Tom's death. Having worked with Tom on
several occasions Royce considered him a fine journalist and knows
"his articles and stories will truly be missed. He will be remembered
most by the cast who helped bring his play The Ice Man' to life."
I had the pleasure of working with Tom as he directed Neil Simon's
"Plaza Suite" for a Panhandle Players spring 2002 performance. His
gentle manner did not keep him from making his points and main-
taining a highly professional standard of performance. His advice and
direction would lead the actors to find themselves in their characters
and ultimately to make their character come alive through their "hon-
est portrayal. If it showed that we were "acting" something was wrong!
He wanted the audience to see the characters as real people through
our portrayal. That was a rich learning experience.
Throughout 2002 Tom was in and out of hospitals and nursing homes.
but still found the time and energy for directing. If he was in pain he
did not let it show, except at times he might appear tired. I like to
think of the words Rex Partington expressed upon hearing of Tom's
death, "He's probably up there having a fine talk with John Gorrie".
They might even be collaborating on a sequel.

In Memoriam

By Jean Collins
Sea Oats Gallery
I am so sorry to hear that we have lost Tom. He was a dear man and
a cherished acquaintance. I was privileged to join him on several oc-
casions for performances at The Dixie Theatre, which he loved so
much. He accompanied me to a number of art festivals and shows.
offering valued insight into works we found interesting. His love for
the arts continued to be a driving force in his life here in Franklin
County.
Occasionally, we would just meet for a bite to eat and enjoyable con-
versation. He tempered targeted insight with dry humor in such a
gentle way. It was not in his nature to offend or hurt. It was his
nature to volunteer time and energy whenever called upon. He was a
kind and talented man whose sensibilities and smiling face I will surely
miss.
Expressions of sympathy and support may be sent to Mr. Campbell's
sister, Mrs. Sandra Roper, 55 Myrtle Grove Lane, Covington. Georgia
30014.


Update On Division Of

Aquaculture Budget

From the Bivalve Bulletin (May 2003)
The Florida aquaculture industry received a rude awakening in Janu-
ary when Governor Jeb Bush released his proposed budget for the
2003 state legislative session. In it the governor drastically reduced
staff and funding to the Division of Aquaculture within the Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS). Initially, the
Governor's office indicated the state's interest would best be served if
the Division's operations were privatized. Later, there was specula-
tion about redistributing core programs and services among several
agencies. The only clarification obtained from the Governor's office
was that 1) aquaculture would remain agriculture, 2) FDA require-
ments for the shellfish industry would have to be met, 3) the aquac-
ulture certification program should continue, and 4) the BMP pro-ram
and inspections should continue. This blow was even more disturb-
ing given the monumental strides and progress the aquaculture in-
dustry has achieved over the last decade, as well as support received
from the Legislature to create the Division. In part, these efforts were
accomplished through the successes of shellfish aquaculture retrain-
ing programs, which provided rural economic development and placed
hundreds of people into small businesses.
Over the past two months, individual clam growers as well as local
growers associations have reacted by joining other segments of the
aquaculture industry. Legislators have become reeducated on the
importance of this industry and have confirmed their cooperation.
Letters of support and resolutions have been obtained from citizens,
chambers of commerce, and local governments. Industry members
from all parts of the state haye given testimony at agriculture appro-
priation committee meetings in Tallahassee. Further, the industry
received a large amount of publicity from the press. The result is that
both the House and Senate passed budgets which include full resto-
ration of funding to the Division. Unfortunately, the outcome is now
contingent upon results of a special session that runs through May,
along with final approval of the 2003-4 fiscal year operating budget
by the Governor. Several things have been reinforced through this
budgetary crisis. First, growers and associations need to stay active
and in touch with their legislators. Second, industry representatives
must continue to look after their own interests. It has been quite
rewarding to witness the response of the relatively new clam aquac-
ulture industry. Members have risen to the occasion-verifying it some-
times takes a common problem to bring people together. If you have
any further questions, contact Kal Knickerbocker with the Division of
Aquaculture at (850) 488-4033 or knickek@doacs.state.fl.us.

Retired Chief Of Police Marvin

Braswell Dies

A Personal Remembrance
By Rene Topping
Marvin Braswell will forever be remembered by me, and many other
residents in the connection to '"The Smallest Police station In The
World." On the other hand he was a good man, always calm no mat-
ter what was happening around him.
I got to know him from almost the first day I was here. My husband
and I arrived here in April; 1977. We had already been told that the
police department was manned by three men.
We were sitting in the rental we were living in at St. James until we
could build our house when there was a bulletin on the T.V. that a
man had locked himself in a house in the downtown area and was
fully armed. He also had a disabled nephew with him. Coming from a
bigger town of Tucson we were amazed as to how the word gets out in
a small place and in no time there were Deputies, Marine Patrol Fish
and Game Officers, and many others assembled in the middle of the
town. An officer by the name Patton was on duty in town that night.
Patton had called and the entire Carrabelle force was there. He had
tried to get into the house but was hit with a bullet and died. We
realized that even a tiny town can have tragedies.
From then I would always meet the chief at the Post Office and I
never failed to call him chief long after he had retired.
Marvin became known far and wide not only in Florida but all over
the United States, Australia. Canada, the British Isles and Europe.
It was on a program on the T.V. called "Real People" the piece on'
Carrabelle was aired. Sarah Purcell who was one of the stars of that
program had a father who lived in Lanark Village. He told her how the
town had no Police Station and the officers worked out of a red phone
booth.
The "Real People staff went all over Carrabelle on a Sunday and
between Jack Burda and Marvin they told the myths and the tales of
what soon became 'The Smallest Police Station In The World."
Jack said that they had a policeman who got stuck in the booth.
Another tale was told by Jackson who saw some students trying to
steal the booth. He said he got them on the run when he told them he
was the Police Commissioner.
Marvin was asked what he did in the town on Sunday and Marvin
said, "You could shoot a canon up main street and never hit any-
thing." He also said, "Sometimes I go to Church and let her go by
herself."
From that time on Marvin was starred in programs from all over the
world. People came off the interstate just to see "The smallest Police
Station in the World." It became the most photographed item in
Carrabelle. To this day tourists ask where they can find it.
The town commissioners felt that they should move it as the program
gave us the flavor of Mayberry. They soon found out that the visitors
thought that was just great, and some of them came and stayed.
He starred in a movie that was produced by Tom Hoffer and the stu-
dents of FSU. The film was made in Tate's Hell long before it became
a State Forest. Hoffer was a professor and he saw Marvin as one of
the people who saw Tate as he came out of the three days he had
spent with panthers, snakes and swamp land. He was said on his
rescue, "My name is Tate and I have just been in Hell."
Marvin had one big piece of luck when he won the Florida lottery. It
did not change him but he did get a new pickup.
Marvin ended his days in a long and painful fight with cancer. He was
happy when he managed to stay alive until a great grandchild was
born.
I shall miss Chief Marvin and the exchange of greetings at the post
office.

2002 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Eastpoint Water and Sewer District
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to
inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to
provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the
efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources.
We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two
wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. This report shows our water quality results and what
they mean. The only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Derek
Martina at 850/670-8177. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility.
If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the
first Thursday after the 10yh of the Month at 4:00 PM at the Eastpoint Water and Sewer District
Office, 40 Island Drive, Eastpoint, Florida.

The Eastpoint Water and Sewer District routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water
according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this
report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2002.
Data obtained before January 1, 2002, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing
done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand
these terms we've provided the following definitions.

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking
water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below
which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other
requirements that a water system must follow.

Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts
by weight of the water sample.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts
by weight of the water sample.

"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up
substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment
plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result
from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban
stormwater runoff and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are
by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas
stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil, and gas
production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the
amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must
provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts
of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses
a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by
calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In
order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that
will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure
adjustments. Thank you for understanding.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general
population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy,
persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system
disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should
seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on
appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at the Eastpoint Water and Sewer District would like you to understand the efforts we make to
continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to
insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information
provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

Franklin County
Infrastructure And Public
Services Workshop

By Harriett Beach
Thirty-five residents of Franklin
County came together at an ad-
vertised public meeting May 20th
at 6:00 p.m. at the Franklin
County Courthouse to discuss
and clarify issues and options
concerning Franklin County in-
frastructure and public services.
They worked to develop recom-
mendations for how these issues
can be addressed. They then cast
votes to determine what were the
best recommendations to refer to
the Franklin County Community
Planners who will be writing the.
new County Comprehensive Plan.
They also determined what are
the next steps need to develop
these and other recommendation
made at previous workshops.
Alan Pierce, Franklin County
Planning Director, opened the
workshop by giving an overview
of the infrastructure and services
currently in Franklin County and
pointing out where the current
infrastructure and services do not
meet the needs of the residents
of the County. Pierce told the
group that the workshop would
be on the five general topic areas:
* Roads and traffic safety
* Public safety (law enforcement,
911 communications, fire protec-
tion, and emergency manage-
ment)
* Healthcare
* Education
* Public facilities and recreation
Pierce reminded the group that
potable water and waste-water
had been addressed at the third
workshop on Franklin County
Natural Resources and would not
be addressed in this current
workshop even though potable
water and waste-water treatment
are considered part of the County
infrastructure. If anyone had ad-
dition issues and concerns relat-
ing to water related topics, Pierce
encouraged them to share the is-
sues with the group.
Pierce offered the following three
items of information for the work-
shop participants to consider in
their discussions.
* The total county budget for 2003
is $17.8 million
* $6.4 million of 2003 revenues
was generated by property taxes,
and $11.4 million in revenues was
generated from other sources
such as state revenue sharing,
county gas tax, etc.
County revenues are used to fund
the Sheriff s Department, 'the ju-
dicial system, property
appraiser's office' tax collector's
office, supervisor of elections of-
fice, clerk of courts office, county
road department, county solid
waste department, county plan-
ning and building department,
recreation department and other
county functions.
Pierce pointed out that lands held
by the State and Federal Govern-
ments, which are 70% of the
county, do not generate any tax
base for the county. A 5-cent per
allon gas tax, which generates
300,000.00 every three years, is
used for paving county roads. The
county has the option of floating
a bond for addition financing of
the road paving. As for the bud-
get of the Sheriff s Department,
Pierce said that the Sheriff man-
ages that money without any in-
put from the Commissioners.
Pierce told the group that the
County School Board receives
money from County property
taxes, (7 million dollars) and the
state, (7 million dollars). This year
the Franklin County School Board
budget was 14 million dollars to
educate 1200 students in five
schools and is managed by the
elected School Board without any
input by the County Commission-
ers.
Pierce said that there would be
another workshop in about one
month to discuss the function of
the local Government.
After giving background informa-
tion about Franklin County,
Pierce introduced the following
resource people assigned to the
discussion groups. Public Safety:
Major Mike Mock of the Sheriff s
Department, Tim Turner, Emer-
gency Management Services, and
several volunteer fire department
members; Healthcare: Mike Lake
from the Dasee Corp. that leases
and manages the County owned
Hospital: Education: Joyce Estes,
Curriculum Coordinator at
Apalachicola High School; and
Public Facilities and Recreation;


Van Johnston, Waste and Recre-
ation Manager for Franklin Co.
The resource person for Roads
and Traffic Safety did not arrive
in time for the discussions so
Pierce and Mock served as re-
source people for that group.
Pierce then turned the meeting
over to Tom Taylor, workshop fa-
cilitator from FSU.
Taylor introduced the FSU Urban
Planning students who volun-
teered to help with facilitating the
workshop. Before the large group
divided into the smaller discus-
sion groups, Taylor emphasized
that all the discussions are citi-
zen driven and the facilitators and
resource people are there only to
provide requested information.

Franklin County. The group then
reviewed the previous workshops
and suggested concerns about
parts of those workshops that
needed to have additional discus-
sions and work. After much shar-
ing of ideas and ranking the ideas
on a ballot, the meeting ended at
10:30 p.m.
There will be several more work-
shops over the summer to con-
tinue the process of developing
long range planning for Franklin
County. The FSU Team Data
Compilation and Analysis will
continue over the summer. An ad
hoc committee of Alan Pierce, Line
Barnett, Paul Johnson, Anita Gre-
gory Grove, Dan Pennington and
Billy Buzzett have met and
worked over the course of the last
six months to organize the Vision-
ing format and resource material
and to promote these citizen
driven workshops,
The report on the tally of the bal-
loting will be out within two
weeks. The report will be available

Eating, Ya


Love If!


Broccoli

Alias Trees

By Eunice Hartmann
I thought I was so original calling
broccoli "trees" in an attempt to
get my children to eat it. Now I
realize that lots of Mom's did this
too. Actually this worked and they
did eat broccoli. It can't be all that
bad when fast food places can put
it on baked potato and cover with
cheese sauce and it sells! Amaz-
ing!
Nutritionally speaking ft is terrific
for you. Broccoli contains high fi-
ber, low carbohydrate and 220%
Vitamin C and 540% potassium,


The 370 acre golf community
known as St. James Bay, just east
of Carrabelle. is moving ahead
with their plans for a September
course opening. Cart paths have
been completed except for con-
struction crossings. Greens, tees
and fairways have been sodded
and sprigged. Two restroom facili-
ties have started construction. All
golf cart bridges have been com-
pleted. The driv-in range has been
completed. The golf cart barn has
been completed. The golf cart
barn has been completed. And,
Steve Hatch, golf pro. has been
hired. The goffll course will open
in September. The sales and ad-
ministrative building has opened.
The clubhouse construction con-
tract has been awarded and con-
struction has started. Tennis


plus a medium stalk only has 45
calories served by itself. It is of-
ten referred to as a vegetable that
reduces cancer risk because of its
chemical components. Let me be
clear though it does not cure can-
cer, just reduces the risk of de-
veloping colo-rectal and breast
cancer according to the current
research.
This is a practically "must eat"
veggie. It is usually low cost too.
Remember that sauces or butter
will change it calorie content so
try reduced calories margarine or
sprinkled spice mixes. Your chil-
dren may need more encourage-
ment but don't add extras unless
they won't eat it otherwise. Too
many calories has led to the over-
weight population of children and
adults in our country.
Enough said, Try this recipe for a
hot night or to take to your next
club meeting. I was served this at
a teacher appreciation lunch.

Chicken Broccoli Salad
2 heads broccoli; steamed, cooled
and cut up
4 green onions (scallions) chopped
2 chicken breasts; cooked, boned
and cut up
1 cup fresh parsley (a bunch
chopped)

Dressing
1/2 cup cottage cheese (1%)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup milk(reduced fat)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon dill
1 clove garlic
Put the dressing ingredients in the
blender for 1 minute or longer if
garlic is not minced. Pour over the
chicken, broccoli, green onions
etc. Serve with French bread,
broad sticks or hot biscuits.
P.S. You can double this easily or
add more or less of any ingredi-
ent. It is very flexible. You may
want to buy chicken that has been
cooked In the store so you do not
have to cook anything.
Other Ideas:
* Prepare packaged mac and
cheese and add chopped broccoli
* Steam broccoli, add sauteed
shrimp, angel hair pasta and
cover with a pasta sauce of your
choice. Parmesan sauce is excel-
lent this way.

Local Guardsman In Iraq

Members of the Florida National Guard's Company C, 3rd Battalion, 124th Infantry received federal act:
vation orders late last year for the first time since 1942. Apalachicola City Commissioner and local letter
carrier, Jimmy Elliott, is a platoon sergeant in the companyand is now completing his third tour of military
service. He has previously served in the Vietnam War and was deployed to Saudi Arabia with the Florid
Army National Guard's 710th Service Company in 1991 during .Operation Desert Storm.
The Company is currently bivouacked on the palace grounds of Iraq's Republican Guard, which present
serves as headquarters for the U.S. Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance. Company C
3rd Battalion, 124th Infantry, crossed the Kuwait/Iraqi border four hours after the start of the ground wa
and was the first National Guard combat arms unit to arrive in Baghdad, Iraq with an active duty Patric
Battery. At the close of major fighting, the Battalion was reconstituted as a vibrant security force whose
duties have included patrolling Baghdad and providing protection for U. S. presidential envoy L. Pau
Bremer, retired Lt. Gen. Jay Garner and other top officials.

FWC Schedules

May 28-30

Meeting In

Kissimmee


Publisher's Note: The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation, will have met by the
time this issue of the
Chronicle reaches the public.
But, because the agenda of
the meeting contains a
number of issues of some
interest to the Panhandle
fishing industries we are
publishing the narrative for
the meeting that was held
May 28-30, 2003. Additional
information may be obtained
at 850-488-4676.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) will
meet in Kissimmee May 28-30 at
the Osceola County Administra-
tion Building. The meeting will
convene at 8:30 a.m. all three
days.
The May 28 (Wednesday) agenda
Swill include consideration of
whether to proceed with reclassi-
fying the manatee from endan-
gered to another category. Com-
missioners also will consider for-
mal classification of the Miami
blue butterfly as endangered.
Currently, the Miami blue
butterfly's endangered species
classification is the result of an
emergency executive order by
FWC executive director, Ken
i- Haddad, which would expire af-
:r ter 240 days without the agency
Y conducting the formal classifica-
a tion process.
For both species, Commissioners
y will consider completion of Phase
D, I of the classification change pro-
Lr cess, which includes evaluation of
ot a biological status report, recom-
3e mendations from a panel of sci-
ul entific experts and public input.
At this point, Commissioners can
determine whether listing the spe-
cies as endangered, threatened or
species of special concern is ap-
propriate. If the Commission de-
termines that listing the species
is warranted, it will then set a
deadline for FWC staff to prepare
a management plan. The FWC
requires development of the man-
agement plan before any official
listing of the species can take ef-
fect.
Changes to the state's imperiled
species list do not necessarily re-
sult in corresponding changes to


the federal government s list,
which is based on different crite-
ria.
Also on Wednesday's agenda are
reports on progress of the Listing
Process Stakeholders Panel and
results of the statewide deer
hunter survey and workshops
and proposed antlered deer har-
vest strategy. The stakeholders
panel is evaluating whether the
FWC should change the criteria
it uses to classify imperiled spe-
cies. The deer hunter survey and
workshops sought feedback from
sportsmen regarding whether
they want Florida's deer herds
managed for large antlers or gen-
erous bag limits.
Other items on Wednesday's
agenda include wildlife manage-
ment area, wildlife and environ-
mental area and public use area
regulations, acreage adjustments,
user quotas and fees.
In addition, during the Wednes-
day session, Commissioners will
review and discuss draft rules
concerning the Florida Manatee
Sanctuary Act, consider the
Aquatic Resource Enhancement
Work Plan for 2003-04 and review
and consider migratory bird hunt-
ing regulations for 2003-04.
Regarding marine fisheries is-
sues, the FWC, during Thursday's
session, will conduct a final pub-
lic hearing ort several proposed
spiny lobster rule amendments,
including eliminating the 24-lob-
ster vessel limit from the regular
season recreational bag limit, -re-
ducing the bag limit during the
two-day sport lobster season in
Biscayne National Park from 12
to 6 lobsters per person per day
and phasing out the higher rec-
reational bag limit for persons
holding the Special Recreational
Crawfish License by the 2012-13
season.
The proposed rule also would es-
tablish a commercial dive posses-
sion/vessel limit of 250 lobsters
per day Aug. 6-31 of each fishing
season and 200 lobsters per day
for the remainder of the fishing
season, establish a commercial
dive permit beginning in the
2004-05 season with a morato-
rium on new permits effective
Jan. 1, 2005, prohibit dive per-
mit holders from also holding trap
certificates, provide procedures to
allow another person to pull a
harvester's traps under certain
circumstances and prohibit all
harvest of lobsters from illegal
artificial habitat.
Commissioners also will conduct
a final hearing Thursday regard-
ing proposed pompano rule
amendments, including reducing

Congressman Allen Boyd And The

Blue Dogs Urge That The Debt Issue

Deserves More Serious Debate

The Blue Dog Coalition, a group of moderate-to-conservative Demo-
crats, of which Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) is a mem-
ber, sent a letter today to President Bush requesting the administra-
tion immediately inform Congress about the date at which the U.S.
Treasury can no longer operate without entering default, and work
with Congress to pass a modest and temporary increase in the debt
limit to avoid default. Recent reports suggest the Treasury will run
out of its borrowing authority soon.

The Blue Dogs wrote, "While we are willing to support a short term
increase in the debt ceiling to avoid the impending risk of default, We
will not vote to approve an increase in the debt limit to allow the
government to continue on the current course of deficits as far as the
eye can see. We find it irresponsible to provide a 'blank check' for
increased borrowing authority without examination of the conditions
that have made such an increase necessary."


The Blue Dogs are voicing serious concern about the federal govern-
ment needing to raise the statutory debt ceiling for the second time in
less than nine months. Last spring, the debt ceiling was raised by
$450 billion dollars, and in the ensuing months, the federal govern-
ment has plunged that much deeper into debt. In the letter, which
was signed by over 30 members of the coalition, the Blue Dogs main-
tained that acting now to provide a short-term increase in the debt
limit will allow the necessary time to consider a long-term, larger
increase with the deliberation and focus such a serious matter de-
serves. The Blue Dogs added, "a thorough debate on lifting the debt
ceiling is particularly timely as Congress considers tax cuts that could
add more than $800 billion to the national debt over the next ten
years."

To address this imminent financial crisis, Congress must approve an
increase in the debt limit. Currently, the Senate is expected to con-
sider a $920 billion increase in the statutory debt limit sometime this
week. if the bill is amended, it will come back to the House for a vote.
The statutory debt limit caps the total amount the United States Gov-
ernment can borrow through Treasury bills and other measures.

"The Nature Conservancy is pleased to have assisted the
Department of Environmental Protection with this addi-
tion to Bald Point State Park," said Victoria J. Tschinkel,
Florida State Director of The Nature Conservancy. "This
Florida Forever program acquisition is an excellent ex-,
ample of how working together with a willing seller like
the St. Joe Company can bring a prime piece of coastal
property into public ownership for future generations to
enjoy."

About The Nature Conservancy
The Nature Conservancy is a nonprofit, conservation organization
dedicated to preserving plants, animals and natural communities that
represent the diversity of life on earth by protecting the lands and
waters they need to survive. The Conservancy's Florida Chapter. to-
gether with its members and conservation partners, have helped pro-
tect more than I million acres of critical natural lands throughout the
state since 1961. Visit The Nature Conservancy at nature.org/florida.

About The St. Joe Company
The St. Joe Company, a publicly held company based in Jackson-
ville, is one of Florida's largest real estate operating companies. It is
engaged in community, commercial, industrial, leisure and resort
development, along with commercial real estate services. The com-
pany also has significant interests in timber. More information about
St. Joe can be found at our Web site at www.joe.com.
With this addition to Bald Point, The St. Joe Company's Conservation
Land Program in partnership with the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection. The Nature Conservancy, key environmental
groups, conservation organizations and other government agencies
have now placed 140,000 acres under permanent protection in the
last four years. Programs now in planning to protect many thousands
of additional acres of environmentally sensitive land, and additional
St. Joe acreage-all in Florida's Northwest-is being evaluated for
possible protection in keeping with the company's long-term commit-
ment to environmental stewardship.
For nearly 2 miles, this new addition to Bald Point touches the waters
of Ochlockonee and Alligator Harbor and buffers them against devel-
opment. And, this pristine bay frontage is now protected as well. cer-
tain to remain forever in its natural state.
The new lands also pay homage to the first Americans, who once trod
the woods and marshes of Bald point. Included in the parcel are the
remains of Native American villages and burial mounds-memorials
that have been safeguarded, by the company since St. Joe first ac-
quired the land more than five decades ago. These special village and
burial mound sites will be permanently protected and presented to
the visiting public by interpretative programs of the Florida Park Ser-
vice.
Also, to be protected within the new Bald Point State Park boundary
is Tucker Lake-a one-mile square estuarine lake where inland wa-
ters in with Bay waters carried to the Lake by Chaires Creek. Navi-
gable by canoe or kayak, the sinuous 3.5 mile creek winds past marsh
and Pine Islands that are home to nearly every wildlife species in the
park.
Migrating species also find haven at Bald Point. Native pineland and
scrub flowers nourish millions of migrating butterflies each fall as
they pause here on their annual journey south to Mexico and Central
America. Many hawks and even some Peregrine falcons are seen at
Bald Point during fall migration, and a variety of neo-tropical birds
also grace the park's forest lands, as they make their spring and fill
flights over the Gulf of Mexico.
Once used in World War II by the U.S. military for amphibious as-
sault training, Bald Point's beaches now offer nesting grounds for t he
endangered loggerhead turtles.
