Retreat Center Dedicated

On April 16, 2005, the St. George Island Christian Retreat
Center was officially dedicated. This event is the culmina-
tion of 19 months of continuous, volunteer construction.
About 175 persons attended the dedication.


KidS and Cops Day

The Franklin County Sheriffs Office hosted its first annual Kids and
Cops Day: Friday, May 6th. The event was held at the Sheriffs Office,
starting at 9:30 am and going until 1:30 p.m.
The goal of the program was to develop a strong relationship between
the children and law enforcement. It is the mission of the Sheriffs
Office to create a positive environment that is both fun and educa-
tional.
Agencies attending the event included the Florida Highway Patrol,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, State Forestry
Division, American Red Cross, Emergystat Ambulance Service, the
Carrabelle Police Dept., Apalachicola Police Dept., Fire Departments,
and the Health Dept.


The agencies set up their booths and patrol vehicles including two
helicopters. Officers answered questions from the children as they
arose. Smokey the Bear and McGruff, the Crime Dog also made ap-
pearances. The schools provided transportation to and from the
Sheriffs Office. Refreshments included hamburgers and hot dogs. All
parents and children grades Kindergai-ten through 6th grade were
invited to attend.

3-year term.
Some family health issues could
have necessitated his move to a
different climate, but it turns out
the family will stay in Carrabelle.
Strong applause greeted the rev-
elation, and at least one mayoral
office seeker learned that there
would not be a vacancy, this year.

Workshop Held On
Architectural Standards For

Historical Restoration

By Sue Cronkite
Plans to gather and compile research on architectural standards for
restoration and construction within the City of Apalachicola's His-
torical District were presented by Cindy Clark to the City Planning
and Zoning Commission Monday night. Working under the auspices
of a grant to study styles of buildings in the city, both residential and
commercial, Clark said a booklet would be prepared with pictures
showing what exists at present with an eye to planning for the future.
"The city and Chamber of Commerce are working together on this
project," said Clark.
Anita Grove, executive director of the Apalachicola Bay Area Cham-
ber of Commerce, said the quality of restoration projects can make a
difference in the overall appearance of the city's historic section. From
the audience Richard Bickel asked what the Planning and Zoning
Commission thought about people taking buildings out of town. "We're
trying to keep most of the old homes within the area," said Frank
Cook, P&Z chairman.
Architectural Standards For Historic Restoration And New Construc-
tion Within Apalachicola Historic District
"The purpose of this workshop is to inform the public, builders, realtors
and history enthusiasts about, and invite comment on, the
Apalachicola Historic Architectural Guidelines research and design
project currently underway," said Clark.
"The project, a set of architectural guidelines, will include a review of
architectural styles of buildings in the City, both residential and com-
mercial as well as an analysis of materials used in construction, de-
sign elements and a collection of photographs and illustrations.
'The guidelines are intended to assist property owners, architects,
developers and the Historic Architectural Review Board in making
appropriate decisions concerning renovation methods and materials
as well as new construction design and methods in Apalachicola's
historic districts.
'This document, when complete with photos and illustrations, will be
Produced as part of a downloadable PDF file which shall be available
through the City's website or for sale through the City on CD. A lim-
ted number of hardcopy versions will also be produced.

Ticket sales were brisk at tables set up under the live oaks
at Trinity Episcopal Church. The annual tour of historic
homes is one of the most popular events in the spring in
Apalachicola. People flock from over the area and state to
walk and drive from house to house to see homes built
many years ago.

There was not a cloud in the sky for Apalachicola's 13th Historic
Tour of Homes Saturday. It was like turning the clock backward as
people walked from house to open house over the historic district,
rocked on porches, climbed stairs, peered into parlors, bedrooms,
kitchens, and admired artifacts of a time gone by.
The tour of homes was begun in 1992 under the direction of Harriette
Kennedy in order to raise matching funds for the restoration of Trin-
ity Episcopal Church. Over the years local and area residents have
looked forward to the annual opening of homes for public viewing in
May, with only one year missed since the tours began.
Those who worked long and diligently on this year's tour in order for
people to see inside Apalachicola homes, included Ruth Young, chair
person and committee members, Kay Wheeler, Laura Moody, T.
McLain, Ruth Eckstine, Fran Cook, Jim Hill, Al Mirabella, Hollis Vail,
Jane Pickering, Geri Marsolan, Bill Spohrer, Olga Nichols, Susan
Galloway, Anne Allen, Denise Roux, Alex Moody, Mark Currenton,
Bob Day, Lynn Spohrer, and Renee Bacot.
Apalachicola's 13th Annual Historic Tour of Homes also included
museums and churches. The Orman House State Park Museum was
built from wood cut to measure and shipped to Apalachicola during
the early 1800s where it was assembled on the high bluff overlooking
the broad estuary and bay of the Apalachicola River. Construction of
the house began in 1836. The Orman family sold the house in 1994
and it was restored as a bed and breakfast in 2000. The Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protection Division of Recreation and Paiks
have purchased the house and it is open to the public as a state park.
&.-


The Bickel/Whiteside home is the residence of Richard
and Susan Bickel, who bought the house in 1995. The wood
single siding house was built between 1906 and 1908. The
beautifully restored and landscaped home is surrounded
by huge oak trees.

Visitors on the Historic Homes tour were greeted by a host
of violins making music on the porch at the home of Rich-
ard and Susan Bickel. From left, Julie Rex, Frances
Wiesener, Aisha Moughrabi, Jese Whitfield, Crissy Nepote
and Gabriel Garcia.
The popular Raney House Museum, which is open to the public for
tours on Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m., was built by David G. Raney,
one of the city's earliest leaders who was instrumental in the found-
ing of Trinity Episcopal Church. A friendly welcome was given to the
stream of visitors to the museum on the annual Historic Tour of Homes
by Laura Moody, president of the Apalachicola Area Historical Soci-
ety.
Chestnut Street Cemetery, Trinity Episcopal, St. Patrick's Catholic,
First Baptist, and First United Methodist churches welcomed visitors
to the annual tour. Other places of historic interest includes Chapman
Botanical Gardens, near the Orman House, Fort Combs Armory down-
town, Chapman Auditorium, where the Franklin County School
Superintendent's offices are located, and Lafayette Park at the begin-
ning of 14th Street, where a 90-foot pier reaches out into Apalachicola
Bay.
Visitors saw turn of the century homes with large, airy rooms in ar-
eas through the historical district of the city. At the Bickel/Whiteside
home built between 1906 and 1908, visitors admired the broad win-
dows, wood shingle siding, and a wide porch with columns built in
the Prairie style. The style is reflected in the board and batten wain-
scoting, broad openings between major rooms, built-in dining room
cabinets and buffet. In a downstairs bathroom Richard and Susan
Bickel used shells gathered from beaches along the Gulf Coast to
decorate an entire wall. The Bickels purchased the house in 1995
and restored, landscaped and furnished the home with relics from


The Orman House State Park Museum was built in 1838
by Thomas Orman, a cotton commission merchant. The
two-story building is a combination of styles, mainly Fed-
eral and Greek Revival. The original structure contained
only four rooms, parlor and dining room downstairs and
two bedrooms upstairs. Continued on Page 5

Public Hearings
By Richard E Noble

Lanark Village Gulf View
Acres
"Mr. Larry Witt, agent for Mr.
Branch Mahaffey, had asked that
an item from the last County
Commission meeting consent
agenda be removed, from that
consent agenda and discussed
today," explained Alan Pierce. The
issue involves a request to rezone
property in Lanark (Gulf View
Acres area) on the south side of
U.S. Highway 98 from R-1 (Single
Family Residential) to R- la (Single
Family Subdivision). The Planning
and Zoning recommended denial.
I recommend denial. This area is
in the central High Hazard Zone
(south of Highway 98 between
Eastpoint and Carrabelle), and
the existing zoning of R-1 is the
appropriate zoning for this site."
Mr. Pierce went on to explain that
if the Board allowed this rezon-
ing action, it would be setting a
precedent for increasing the den-
sity in a CHHA (Coastal High Haz-
ard Area) which is a decision that
is in direct opposition to the re-
cently submitted Comprehensive
Plan.
Mr. Witt then spoke on behalf of
Mr. Mahaffey. '"This property does
have water and sewer." He pro-
vided pictures of the property and
plans for the suggested proposal
to the Board. "About two years ago
Mr. Mahaffey's son became a resi-
dent of Franklin County and like
most of the young people in
Franklin County, he can't afford
to buy a piece of property any-
more..Mr. Mahaffey is asking for
permission to divide that (his)
piece of property, so that his son
will be able to build a house next
door. It is that simple."


The property in question was de-
termined to be approximately one
acre and had a recent asking price
of $750,000.
"This is a density issue that you
have not yet dealt with. I'll be hon-
est," said Alan Pierce, "I am to-
tally opposed to this idea until you
fully consider the ramifications of
this project."
Several other groups, mostly
neighbors, were present to oppose
the project. The concern of most
of the neighbors was that they had
purchased their properties with
the required zoning rules as a part
of their original purchase deci-
sion. To change the rules now
would be an infringement on their
property rights as they had ac-
cepted them to be with their origi-
nal purchase. Complaints such as
obstruction of present view of the
bay, increase in density, conges-
tion etc., were also mentioned.
David Hinton, a school board
member and area property owner,
presented a rather detailed de-
fense on behalf of himself and the
other complainants. He presented
the notion that this would open
up the entire neighborhood to a
rezoning from one unit per acre
to three units per acre. "That
would be triple the density, he
explained. "And density is the
major problem in maintaining
water quality." He later added that
he was once a planning and zon-
ing member and that the R-la
subdivision stipulation had never
been intended to allow Mr.
Mahaffey's interpretation.
Mr. Mahaffey then spoke in his
own defense. "I have been a
full-time resident here since 1998.
I was also a planning and zoning
commissioner in Gadsden County
for four years. When we did our
planning in Gadsden County,
there was wording in the Comp
Plan that allowed a split of a piece
of property as long as it is an im-
mediate family member." Mr.
Mahaffey then appealed to the
Board to make their consider-
ations on a case by case basis,
and to keep in mind the financial
situation of the younger workers
and their limited means. "I'm not
some big time developer that's
here to get rich and just leave. I'm
here to stay. I'm homesteaded
here. "
Mr. Mahaffey's real-estate agent
stepped forward to express the
notion that someone's property
rights should not be taken away
on the grounds that another prop-
erty owner's view may be ob-
structed. Mr. Mahaffey explained
that he had the property up for
sale in the past but it was no
longer on the market.
It is interesting to note that all
participants in the controversy felt
that it was their property rights
that were being violated.
A William B. Rhodes, neighbor,
noted that he could understand
this discussion having some rel-
evance in a new, unplatted land
area but with Mr. Mahaffey situ-
ation this would be. considered
more of a "Spot Zoning" situation.
In other words, it would be giving
special consideration to one area
resident as opposed to all the area
residents.
The Brown family Brickyard de-
cision was then made reference
to, but it was explained that that
"family member" decision con-
cerned agricultural property and
not waterfront property in the
CHHA.
"The policy in the CHHA is not to
increase the density in the high
hazard zones," admonished the
county attorney. "I would think

that your decision would be to

sive Plan."


County Attorney to see if some-
thing could be constructed in the
proper wording that would be sat-
isfactory to both the County and
the property owner. It was agreed
and both the land use change and
the rezoning were approved.


There was then a call for a vote. Blounts Bay-Eastpoint,
North


Mr. Putnal was undecided. He was
concerned with the right of a fam-
ily to take care of their children.
Mr. Pierce explained that the
property could be enhanced,
rooms could be added on, another
story was even possible, a garage
with living quarters upstairs-as
long as there was no kitchen,
many options were available to
Mr. Mahaffey to assist his chil-
dren. He is only restricted in that
he can not build a second dwell-
ing on a pre-platted, one-acre
property in a CHHA.
Mr. Mosconis then suggested that
any decision be tabled until the
next meeting. The conclusion was
that the facts of this situation
would be the same next week and
that a decision should be made
at this time.
"The Board's policy is pretty
clear," admonished Mr. Shuler
once again.
"I am confident" added Mr. Pierce,
"that if you say yes to this you will
be inundated with similar re-
quests in the future."
"We're supposed to discourage
building in the CHHA are we not?"
asked Mr. Crofton.
"Yes sir, that is correct."
"If you allow a separate house on
this lot you will create a snowball
effect," warned Mr. Pierce.
"We have to base our decision on
the CHHA requirements, not on
anybody's property rights," ex-
plained Mr. Mosconis. He then
seconded a motion to deny. The
motion was proposed by Commis-
sioner Crofton. The Board agreed
unanimously.

Alligator Point
Next was a 9.98 acre parcel lying
in section 32, township 6 south,
range I west, Alligator Point. A
land use change was requested
from agricultural to residential
and a rezoning from A-2 Forestry
Agricultural to R-I Single Family
Residential. The property be-
longed to a Mr. Kessner. There
was no discussion and no neigh-
borhood resistance. Both the land
use change and the rezoning were
approved.

Eastpoint
A 10 acre parcel lying in section
18, township 8 south, range 5
west, north of highway 98 be-
tween Eastpoint and Carrabelle
was next to be considered for both
a,land,.use. change from Rural,
Residential to Residential and a
zoning change from R-6 Rural
Residential to R-I Single Family
Residential. This particular prop-
erty had a small portion south of
highway 98 attached to it and Mr.
Putnal expressed the hope that
possibly the County might be able
to strike an arrangement with the
owner to leave a portion for pub-
lic access to the water. Mr.
Waddell, representing the prop-
erty owner, suggested that such
an arrangement might be pos-
sible. He asked to consult with the


A 10-acre parcel lying in section
10, township 8 south, range 7
west, lying on Blounts Bay north
of Eastpoint was next for consid-
eration. Mr. Pat Floyd represented
the owner and requested a land
use change from Agricultural to
Residential and a rezoning from
A-2 (one unit per every forty acre)
Forestry Agricultural to R-3 (one
unit per every five acres) Single
Family Estate Residential. At the
same time an additional 10 acre
parcel lying in section 10, town-
ship 8 south, range 7 west, also
on Blounts Bay north of Eastpoint
requested a land-use change from
Agriculture to Residential and a
rezoning from A-2 Forestry Agri-
culture to R-3 Single Family Es-
tate Residential. Both land-use
changes and both rezoning re-
quests were approved.

Lanark Village-Gulf View
Acres
This was another property that
promoted neighborhood protest.
Lot 9, Gulf View Acres, east of
Lanark Village. Mr. Waddell on
behalf of the WACOVIA group was
requesting a rezoning from R-1
Single Family Residential to R-la
Single Family Subdivision. This
property was on Highway 98 but
on the north side-not on the wa-
ter. Mr. Pierce presented the prob-
lem to the board. The request was
to divide a pre-platted one acre/
one dwelling property to a zoning
that would provide a greater den-
sity (2 to 3 dwelling per acre).
The first property owner to pro-
test, a Mr. Harold Arnold, re-
peated his previous complaint
with regards to what he thought
that his property rights were when
he purchased his one acre in that
area. He felt that because the
property had been zoned origi-
nally as one dwelling per acre that
it would forever remain that zon-
ing designation. He complained
that instead of having his antici-
pated one neighbor on either side,
he may now have as many as
three homes on each side and who
knows what next in the future. He
suggested that such a change
would in effect drive him from the
neighborhood. He also expressed
the opinion that this rezoning re-
quest was made to enhance
someone's real-estate profits and
not to better the neighborhood or
improve the living conditions of
the established residents.
Mr. Rotti, another neighbor, also
complained of the':possibility of
having three three-story buildings
on either side ofhifn and in'addi-
tion he brought up the issue of
water and sewer availability. He
had called the Lanark Water and
Sewer and was told that no water
and sewer would be available to
the property in question for at
least another two years. "We're
asking that you really consider
the folks that are now living there,
as opposed to someone just buy-
ing it as an investment to make
some money.
David Hinton stepped up to the
podium once again. "I've given
each of you a petition, signed by

people living in the community.
I'm two lots over from there (the
lot in question). I was possibly the
first lot owner in this develop-
ment. I bought two acres, because
I was concerned about the envi-
ronment. I never had any inten-
tion of dividing it up. I am dis-
mayed that we have now come to
the conclusion that we need to
have greater density there." He
protested that this was classic
"spot" zoning. He brought up his
previous experience on the Plan-
ning and Zoning Board.
"Spot zoning was only permitted
for seriously compelling reasons."
He suggested that tripling the
density because of central sewer
was not environmentally sound.
He also questioned the definition
of R-la subdivision. "It is hard for
me to conceive that a one acre lot
divided up into three parts is a
subdivision. I was on the Planning
and Zoning for eight years. I was
here when we wrote that ordi-
nance. That was not for use in
existing lots." Mr. Hinton went on
to explain that the original intent
of the subdivision zoning was to
assist investors who were at-
tempting to develop larger areas.
"What you are attempting to do
today is against the concept of
what R-la zoning was originally
designed to do ... There ought to
be a clarification in the County
ordinances with regards to a defi-
nition as to what is a subdivision.
And we need to have verification
as to what this ordinance means
today."
By current definition a subdivi-
sion can consist of anything con-
taining three or more lots of what-
ever size.
There then followed a debate on
whether sewer and water was ac-
tually available or not. Mr. Pierce
had been given a signed docu-
ment from the Lanark Sewer and
Water affirming that water was
available.
Jim Waddell then spoke on behalf
of the property owner. He first
addressed the density issue. He
explained that his group had in-
tentions of only putting two units
on the lot, one north and one
south. Each unit would have its
own road access-one road al-
ready existing to the north and the
other being highway 98. The prop-
erty rezoning had already been
approved by the planning and
zoning board. It had been pre-
sented without opposition on the
consent agenda. He repeated the
Lanark Sewer and Water written
approval. "I don't think that we
are talking about over-building
the neighborhood. These pro-
posed lots would be twice the size
of some of the lots already in the
neighborhood." He also expressed
his notion that this would not be
any real increase in the density
of the area and that sinde this;
property'was: north, of 98 it was
consistent with the requirements-
of the Comp Plan.
A clarification was then made with
regards to R-1 zoning. R-1 is in-
terpreted as one unit per acre or
one unit per lot of record.
A debate then followed as to
whether the availability of water
and sewer was. legitimate. It was
question and there was a contro-
versy involved. The drive access
to Florida Ave. on the north side
of the property was then chal-
lenged. A vote was then called for
and the request for a rezoning was
denied.

Administrative Director
Alan Pierce advised the Board that
the Department of Community
Affairs will make a compliance
determination on the comp plan
by May 26, 2005.
Mr. Pierce provided a letter to the
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council (ARPC) outlining several
economic development projects
the county would like assistance
on.
Excerpts of the. letter are as fol-
lows:
In an effort to improve business,
community and economic devel-
opment, Franklin County would
like to have the following projects
included in the 2005 Annual Re-

the Apalachee Region.
What follows is a list of projects
we support. We are. however, also
interested in the development of
o cnmr- hpnsivp community-
based strategy for long-term com-
munity planning, economic sta-
bility, and sustainability.

Mr. Pierce reported on a meeting
about the Eastpoint Channel held
on April 20th. The meeting was
held near the Channel at the old
Marion Millender trailer park that
is now a state park/picnic area.
"Attendees included myself, Com-
missioner Crofton, School Board
Chairman Jimmy Gander, Greg
Kelly-school board architect con-
sultant, Lee Edmiston-ANERR,
Larry Parsons-USACOE, and
Terry Jangula-USACOE (U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers).
'"he purpose of the meeting was
to discuss the permitting issues
with dredging the Channel. There
is approximately 300,000 cubic
yards of material to be dredged
out of the channel. While the.
county is eligible for a permit to
dispose of the spoil on the break-
water, a permit still has to be ob-
tained. The size of disposal area
needs to be between 12 to 25
acres, and this size is going to
cause additional environmental
review according to USACOE. The
school board was there to say they
would like an opportunity to re-
ceive the spoil instead of putting
it on the breakwater. Lee
.Edmiston was highly supportive
of the spoil being placed on an
upland site. An investigation of
the situation showed that it would
be feasible to pump the spoil to
the school board site. The next
step the Corps will take is to
evaluate the sediment to make
's ie the school board can use it,
anid then iro get an updated cost
to pump; the material approxi-
mately 5 miles to the site. Mr.
Jangula did say funds had been
appropriated by Congress for this
project, but that was before the
Corps had assessed how much
money they needed. Mr. Jangula
will now research the Corps bud-
get to see how much money is
available for this project. I expect
to hear from Mr. Parsons and Mr.
Jangula in several weeks.

operation in a residential area. I
spoke to a Mr. Mike Massey, a
Department of Agriculture food
inspector, who did say an indi-
vidual was going to apply for a li-
cense to collect hard shell crabs
and hold them till they peel. The
site of the business is in an R-1
area, which is a residential zoned
area.

"Action on the matter was de-
ferred. The County Attorney, Tom
Schuler, will report back to the
Board.

"The Board changed the speed
limit to 25 mph on East Pine St.,
from Franklin Blvd. to 5th St. This
section of Pine St. is paved and
congested in the commercial area,
and there have been complaints
of near accidents.







Zero-Based Budgeting

In a completely unexpected mo-
tion, Commission Jimmy
Mosconis moved the Board to
impose Zero-Based Budgeting on
line items in the upcoming review
of the county budget. The Board
approved the motion unani-
mously.

Emergystat

Skip Chormicle from Emergystat
appeared before the Board of
S County Commissioners to com-
ment on their current situation.
He informed the Commissioners
that Emergystat is funding 100%
of tuition for paramedics in train-
ing and that they have increased
the pay of their employees. This
appeared to have stimulated the


EDITORIAL & COMMENTARY


employment of two additional
paramedics from Gadsden
County. He said they were now at
"'full staff." Two ambulances are
currently staffed, three are, "cer-
tified." There was considerable
discussion on the continuing
problem of obtaining ambulance
transportation including a specific
case involving the failure of the
ambulance service being able to
transport a patient out of the
county.

Airport

"Mr. Peter Green, URS, discussed
the fee schedule associated with
the airport fence project. The
Board approved the contract.

The scope of services in the grant
involves a resolution of runway
conflicting coordinate informa-
tion, and to provide a detailed
map of the Apalachicola Munici-
pal airport. The survey will iden-
tify runway ends, location coor-
dinates, and elevation informa-
tion for each of the three runways
at the airport. The map produced
by the grant will provide the ba-
sis for evaluating aeronauthica
use of land acquired with federal
funds and as a reference docu-
ment for any subsequent request
for FAA assistance in land acqui-
sition projects. URS will engage
the services of Southeastern Sur-
veying and Mapping Corporation
for surveying, ownership and
easement research.

The Runway information survey
is estimated to cost $8,917, and
the property map $9,591. Project
management fees total $9,192.
The URS Professional Fee is esti-
mated to be $27,700, and the
Survey/Title expense at $35,000,
bring the total to $62,700. The
Commissioners approved the ap-
plication unanimously.


Doctor Mullis


When is two million dollars not two million dollars?

By Richard E. Noble

So when is two million dollars not two million dollars? When it is
ruled by a local County Commission that your St. George Island prop-
erty is unbuildable-that's when.

A nightmare may have just ended for Dr. Mullis. If you have been
following the Dr. Mullis saga in the Chronicle, you will remember that
at first Dr. Mullis had two lots, then he had one big lot, then he had
no lot.

The good doctor's architect, Mr. Larry Taylor, was before the Com-
mission once again to attempt an understanding. He brought the
story up to date and noted that Dr.' Mullis would like to solve this
problem and avoid any extensive litigation. "He is sitting on two mil-
lion dollars worth of property there, so naturally he has to protect his
rights. We've been working since September trying to find a resolu-
tion to this." He explained that after calling in two different environ-
mental services-an obvious expense-that they had reduced the
encroachment from twenty-five feet to only ten feet. "We're talking
about eighty-seven thousand square feet of land here, and there is
only about one hundred square feet that is outside of that setback.
So without some kind of help we can't build a house of any size and
that was true then and it is still true now. We have re-designed the
house for the second time.

'The Commission had granted a variance of fifteen feet four years
ago, but unfortunately, we let it lapse. We then re-designed the house
for the second time so that we didn't have to ask, we didn't think, for
any kind of a variance on both the house and the sewer system. The
house as it is designed is totally outside of the critical habitat zone of
fifty feet-that is what we understood that the rule was. Of the
twenty-five hundred square foot footprint of the house that we want
to build-about five hundred square foot of that is porches. He is not
building a huge house and he has agreed to build only one house on
these two, very valuable, lots that he has. The footprint (of the pro-
posed structure) is less than three percent of the area that he owns
there. Like the madam Chairman sad, 'A little bit of common sense
goes a long, long way.' It is time to get on with this so that he (Dr.
Mullis) doesn't have to spend more money on this, and the County
doesn't have to spend more money on lawyers. Thank you."

Attorney Shuler then explained some of the confusion with regards to
this situation and informed the Board that a good deal of this prob-
lem was simply a mater of interpretation. Commissioner Mosconis
suggested that this situation had gone far enough and that "we should
get this behind us". He then made a motion to approve the request.
His motion was seconded by Mr. Lockley. The decision was unani-
mous. Mr. Mullis's "no lot" is once again real estate.

In the regular Planning and Zoning meeting following the workshop
the commission disapproved a request to erect a yellow and black
sign at 82 Sixth Street welcoming visitors to the historic Chapman
House where.Anchor Realty's offices are located. It was suggested
that a small, maybe metal plaque, would be a more appropriate sign.

Terri Chastain brought before the commission a request for a build-
ing permit on renovations to 140 Avenue D, including a new roof and
larger porch. He was asked to bring a representation to show how the
improvements would look, including the height of a fence to be erected.
A building permit application by Bobby Wallace to construct a single
family residence at 361-20th Avenue was approved, with plans avail-
able for review at city hall.

A vote on a building permit application by William Poloronis to erect
a picket fence at 54 15' Street was approved. Also approved was a
building permit application by Sam Gilbert for dirt fill to be placed on
his lot at 104 9' Street. A request on an application to erect a fence at
222 V2 Center Street was tabled. Additional items, including eleva-
tion of walkway, building height, and how house would be connected
to garage was asked for on building application permit for single fam-
ily residence at 242 Center Street.

After discussion, representatives of Landmark Group were asked to
bring more extensive descriptions of how buildings at The Preserve at
Bays Edge located at the comer of 24th Street and Highway 98 would
look. Several neighbors objected to the proposed 20-townhouse project
and suggested the buildings would not fit the look of their neighbor-
hood. Lee Willis described a possible development called Apalachicola
Exchange, something on the order of the Grady Building, to be lo-
cated at the comer ofWater Street and Avenue D. Curt Blair brought

renderings and documents on his proposed hotel and marina project.
"We need to get the ordinance in place first," said Leon Bloodworth,:
commission member.

Pastor Horace Solomon of the New Life Church asked for help from,
the commissioners and city employees in resolving a problem his
church group has had with builder Larry Hatfleld. 'The building leaks,,
there is mildew on the walls, and other things that weren't completed,
and the building is less than two years old," said Pastor Solomon.-
The church also fell for a fly-by-night asphalt scheme where some;
men claiming to be parking lot builders gave him a "deal" on the cost
of pouring in an asphalt parking lot. The men told Pastor Solomon
that he didn't need a permit and exceeded the allowed amount of
space to be used as a parking lot. Betty Taylor-Web, city administra-
tor, and Cindi Giametta, code enforcement officer, were asked to help
Pastor Solomon get some of the issues resolved.

Discussion was also begun on construction of a downtown motel with
the representative asking for help from Planning and Zoning on what'
he could build and maintain. Commissioners were not agreeable to
the notion of off-premise management. Commission Member-
Bloodworth offered to help the man crunch some numbers. "It sounds
viable to me," said Bloodworth.

SIt's Your Money

f By Peter F. Crowell,
Certified Financial Planner


-- In the early 1980's a friend of mine,
one of the first financial planners in
Tallahassee, wrote a column for the
SI Democrat that took a hard look at
Many of the personal financial issues
of that time. Candidly, he did it in a
manner that was a little too direct for
Some, but interesting enough, many
of his opinions are still valid. The
Premise that he started with was that the "investor" should never
.forget that it is their money at risk. Thus the name of this column.
>The Chronicle has offered me an opportunity to educate their readers
-on financial areas that I feel will be of interest to them. It is my goal to
help you navigate the current economy with information that you
. can use. However, unlike the columns of my friend of 20 years ago,
.the various federal and state regulatory bodies have taken a height-
:ened interest in oversight of what is said and by whom. As a result
:there are a few things that you should not expect: no hot stock tips;
;no short term market predictions; and, no get rich quick schemes.
-,You should expect honest advice, impartial information about cur-
;rent trends, and financial planning tools that will help your decision
-,making.
,"You are probably familiar with the phrase "If it sounds to good to be
true, it probably is." This relates closely with this week's column re-
garding how the risk you assume always relates to the amount of
reward you should expect.
The potential return from any investment can generally be linked to
the amount of risk the investor is willing to assume. Finding that
balance between the return you desire and the risk you can handle
has never been easy. What makes this problem even trickier is that
your financial goals-and thus your risk tolerance-inevitably change
throughout your life. Therefore, the investment that was right for
your goals of yesterday may not be so appropriate today.
It is a good idea to review your investments periodically with risk
tolerance in mind. If you heed the advice of your financial advisor,
you probably already review your account statements on a regular
basis to monitor performance and change any investments whose
time has passed. Take some extra time when doing this to screen
your investments for inappropriate levels of risk.
Most people identify risk management with safety of principal. This is
true to an extent-a dollar locked in a safety deposit box for 10 years
will most likely be worth a dollar when it is taken out.
Of course, that dollar is not likely to have as much purchasing power
In 10 years as it does today. In other words, locking your money away
exposes it to inflation risk. What you gained in stability, you lost in
buying power.
Like that dollar in the box, some investments are also exposed to
inflation risk. There are many other types of risk as well, which apply
to different securities. The following are some of the types of invest-
tnent risk you should keep in mind.
* Market Risk-the possibility that an investment may lose its value
when traded in the financial markets.
* Credit Risk-the possibility that the issuer of an investment (a
corporate bond, for example) may not live up to its financial obliga-
tions and cause you to lose your invested capital or not receive ex-
pected interest payments.
* Interest Rate Risk-the risk that, if interest rates rise, the price
(value) of an investor's bond holdings and certain stocks will decline.
* Reinvestment Risk-the possibility that interest rates will fall as a
fixed income investment matures and cause you to be unable to rein-
vest matured assets at an attractive rate of return.

* Liquidity Risk-the risk that you will be unable to liquidate an
asset (such as real estate, collectibles or thinly traded stocks) when
you want and at the price you want.
While the variety of risks is substantial, you should not let risk man-
agement intimidate you. People participate in the financial markets
because the rewards have often enough outweighed the risks. By care-
fully assessing all the risks an investment offers and periodically re-
viewing the holdings in your portfolio with your financial advisor in
consideration with your risk tolerance, you should be able to find a
level of risk that is appropriate for meeting your investment goals.
The analysis of risk can be quite complex, but it all comes down to
how comfortable you are with the way your money is invested. It
must pass the "sleep test"-if how it's allocated keeps you awake at
night, it's time to make a change.
While I cannot answer individual questions in the column, I will be
happy to address the issues and topics in future issues. Please feel
free to write me in care of the Chronicle or at PO Box 270, Lanark
Village, Florida 32323.
Always remember, "It's Your Money".


Allow Jennifer Wilbanks

Some Peace Of Mind

The "Jennifer Wilbanks" runaway bride story so heavily covered on
CNN has turned into soap opera, as the news center continues to
hammer away at the contradictions and inconsistencies in the story.
Simply put, the bride-to-be got cola feet, for whatever reason. I sus-
pect some of those reasons are deeply personal, and no business of
the CNN interviewers, but no doubt they will persist in redefining
what is news. This is the cable network that touts "We know drama"
on their entertainment channels, but I suggest that they know very
little about drama when repetitive coverage over nonsense and irrel-
evant "facts" are continually extorted and blown way out of propor-
tion. This news service still has not measured up because they don't
know when to drop the story. Exploiting conflict is not drama; it is
extortion.

From The Apalachicola

Riverkeeper

(Vol. VI, No. 1) Spring 2005

Update on "Water Wars"
The on-going fight in the federal court system to secure an equitable
allocation of the waters, of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF)
river basin is moving toward some significant decision points. Judge
Karon Bowdre of the Federal District Court of Northern Alabama has
set a date of June 30, 2005 to hear all current motions pertaining to
the allocation/re-allocation of the surface waters of the ACF Basin.
Those motions including one from Alabama and Florida to make her
current injunction against additional upstream out-take contracts a
permanent injunction. In opposition, Georgia and the US Army Corps
of Engineers have asked that her injunction be remove" so that new
water contracts for additional removal V of upstream waters to fuel
Atlanta's growth can be created.
The basis for Judge Bowdre's original temporary injunction was the
presumption that further upstream withdrawals cannot be made with-
out damage to downstream interests in Alabama and Florida. Florida's
Solicitor General, Christopher Kise, and the FDEP General Counsel,
Greg Munson, are preparing support for the Florida/Alabama motion
with the experienced assistance of outside counsel in trial attorneys
Larry Caster and Don Blankenau. They are augmented by technical
expertise from "subject-matter-experts" from state agencies having
multiple years of experience in responsibility for the health of the
River and Bay. The joint responsibility of this group is to prepare
Florida's "expert witnesses" to establish an "ecological flow regime"
(range of flows X duration X frequency) that will sustain the water
quality, health and productivity of our River and Bay.
,In the meantime, the Corps of Engineers advised Judge Bowdre's
Court of their intention to begin a 2 year project to update the water
control plans which are the operational instructions to Dam/reser-
voir operators on how they will meet the various user demands for
water. Somewhat in response, both US Senators from Alabama, to-
gether with the remainder of the Alabama congressional delegation,
have moved to block the appointment of Mr. Woodley, President Bush's
nominee to be the Under Secretary of the Army for Public Works and
the civilian boss of the Corps of Engineers. This would seem to place
the Water Control Plan updates back on hold, but that's not clear at
this writing. So where does that leave us as Stakeholders in the health
and productivity of the Apalachicola River and Bay? The current tides
are in our favor. The key events are the arguments made in Judge
Bowdre's court in Birmingham in June. We'll keep you advised on
our website at www.abark.org.

State Stands United on Stopping Ruinous Dredging
Hats Offl to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and
Secretary Colleen Castille for taking bold action in denying the Corps
of Engineers request for an extension of time to dredge until the hard
questions associated with the project are addressed. The decision on
the 5-year permit still looms on the horizon just 90 days away, but a
clear message has been sent.
What is left to consider makes that decision look straight forward
enough. Between 1998 and 2003 only 12 barges made the 107 mile
trip up the River to Jim Woodruff Dam. Prior to that the cost was
averaging $30,000 per barge, unacceptable in even the Corps budget
office. In a 199- letter to Senator Bob Graham, Secretary of Civil Works
for the Corps Joseph Westfall deemed the Apalachicola project eco-
nomically infeasible and environmentally unacceptable.
The Apalachicola Riverkeeper in cooperation with Damayan Water
Project recently produced a report which solidifies this case. The analy-
sis entitled An Evaluation of Channel Availability on the Apalachicola
River Without Dredging, concludes that a navigable channel is avail-
able without dredging during a typical water year 4-5 months of the
year and, that dredging expands the availability by only 30-45 days. It
is tough to argue a sound case for dredging,with a clear picture that
benefits are even less than previously thought.

Homes Tour from Page 1
world travels.
Patrice Williar in the Williar/Moren home on Ninth Street pointed out
unusual features of the house. Tour visitors saw the original tongue
and groove walls, 11-foot ceilings and heart pine floors in the home
where Patrice and Jim Williar live. Windows in the dining room are
original to the house. Windows overlook a brick patio constructed in
2000. Plants in the landscaping are original to the property.
Furniture and Furnishings of Willis/Hodges home on Bay Avenue
reflect a time gone by. The second story of the house was added in
1881 in the home built originally in 1873 by Henry Grady. Kathy and
Lee Willis live in the home. Kathy is a great grandniece of the builder.
Tour visitors walked through and saw details including heart pine
floors and wide black cypress molding. Jimmy Smith of Parker was
among visitors admiring the dining room. Wide stairs twist and turn
to the second floor of the historic home. The house was once one
story with a wraparound porch, and was restored to its circa 1900
appearance in a five-year renovation project completed in 1993.

Brickwork forms a backdrop in the kitchen of the Leach/

The home, constructed in 1893 by builders George and
John Marshall, for August Mohr. Writer Alexander Key and
his wife Margaret Key became owners in the 1930s.
6Y- W_ 4h .


The Leach/Key/Mohr home facing Lafayette Park on the
bay in Apalachicola was open to visitors for the 13'h an-
nual Historic Tour of Homes. The spiral cast iron stairway
from the kitchen to the second floor is an unusual aspect
of the 19th century restoration. Local historian Margaret
Key directed that the home be sold at her death and the
funds be used to benefit the Apalachicola City Library. The
home was purchased by Gregory and Sally Leach.


The Historic Raney House Museum is one of the year-round
attractions in Apalachicola. On the corner of Market Street
and Avenue F, the stately Greek Revival home was built in
1836 by David G. Raney and his wife Harriet, native Vir-
ginians. The museum, owned by the City of Apalachicola,
is leased to the Apalachicola Area Historical Society which
gives tours on Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m.
The McKenzie/Creekmore home on the Historic Tour had a steady
stream of visitors Saturday. The home was built about 1890. In the
early 1950s Walter Newton and Mary Carol Creekmore bought the
house where they reared their two sons. The bay front home was
completely restored, refurbished and landscaped in 2,000 when pur-
chased by Frances and Thorpe McKenzie. Lois Watkins and Taylen
Peaden of Lake City and Apalachicola admired a breakfast room in
the house built in the Colonial Revival style.
The Betty and Billy Buzzett home is filled with favorite things. Lee
Buzzett Smith showed off her mother's rocker in a room filled with
items which belonged to Elizabeth (Betty) Boyd Buzzett. In 2002, with
ownership still in the Billy Buzzett family, daughters Lee and Susan
restored the house to resemble its original form. Family members fill
the house with laughter, said Mrs. Smith. Tour visitors saw a home
filled with family pictures and mementos.
Constructed between 1884 and 1887, the Rice House is a typical
example of the Three Bay Classic Revival Cottage architecture. In
1910 S.E. Rice purchased the property and it remained in the Rice
family until 1942. Over the next 60 years, the Rice house changed
hands 11 times, with one of the most recent owners being Edith
Edwards who sold the house in 2003 to Gregory and Sally Leach.
A peaceful scene greeted visitors as they stepped up on the porch of
Gore/Sangaree Home on Apalachicola's 13th Annual Tour of Homes.
The home is Queen Anne style built in 1889 and began as a one story
single-family residence, with the second floor added at a later time.
The Sangaree family later used the home as the town's funeral parlor.
The current owners have completely refurbished the home, leaving
many of the original features. Visitors, saw many of the features of the
home built in 1889, where the owners were careful to leave original
windows, doors, 'heart pine floors, tongue and groove walls, crown
moldings, and decorative wood valence on the main floor. The origi-
nal staircase was removed. Iron gates, which were original to the
grounds, are now used as decorative landscaping features.
The Dosik/Surratt home, built in 1892 was originally on the comer of
Avenue B and 9th Street. It was moved to the 11th Street location in
1960. Mainly constructed of local cypress, the house was purchased
by architect George Surratt in 1990 and restored. The present own-
ers purchased the house in 2002 and have added extra windows,
doors, a new deck, pool and gazebo.
The MacRae/Hawkins home on Fifth Street was built in 1846 for
George Sidney Hawkins, Florida's first Supreme Court Chief Justice.
Hawkins was one of the members of the Apalachicola Land Com-
pany, which laid out the city's streets. Wesley Chesnut is Hawkins'
great-grandson. Married seven times, Hawkins outlived six of his wives.
The current owner is Betty MacRae.


The Betty and Billy Buzzett home on the bay in
Apalachicola was begun in 1938 by local builder Neuman
Marshall, who completed the home in time for their wed-
ding in June of 1939. It was originally a two-bedroom cot-
tage. Additions and enlargements were made later to ac-
commodate a larger family as their daughters Susan and
Lee grew up.


......... -.., .._.


The Parker/Dodd house, considered the classic example
of Florida Cracker architecture, was built in 1888. The'
Cracker house is a more sophisticated version of the Old
Florida Dog Trot style house which had an open hallway
down the center of the house which allowed a pleasant
breeze to blow through during hot weather.


Natural wonders aren't formed overnight.

Economic Element For The Draft

Comprehensive Plan Franklin County
Publisher's Note: The economic element was developed separately from the draft comprehensive
plan, and introduced into the record at the last meeting (May 3, 2005) of the Board of Franklin
County Commissioners by Alan Pierce, Administrative Director. The Chronicle is publishing this draft
to help complete the record of the proceedings, as previously reported in our news pages. Please note
that this is a draft plan from the committee chaired by John Gore of the Carrabelle Chamber. The
specifics, contained in this draft will be discussed at the Board of Franklin County Commissioners at
their May 17. 2005 meeting.


FRANKLIN COUNTY, FLORIDA
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
ECONOMIC ELEMENT
4/5/05
INTRODUCTION
The intent of the Economic Element is to establish a framework to manage and sustain
future economic growth so as to promote and enhance the existing economic base of
Franklin County, and set forth a plan of action to accomplish this in harmony with the
environment, the community, its' heritage and cultural values.
COMMUNITY VISION
Franklin County is a small rural county with a depressed economy centered on a
traditional Commercial Seafood industry and growing eco-tourism. We are
approximately equidistant (70 miles) from the nearest urban service areas of
Tallahassee and Panama City. Future Economic Development needs to be deliberately
planned and vigorously implemented to preserve community character and quality of life,
while attracting environmentally sound opportunities for managed economic growth. The
attraction of such growth will depend heavily on workforce availability and supporting
infrastructure (roads, schools, affordable housing). The combined Chambers of
Commerce has taken the lead in developing a draft Economic Development Plan for
integration with the revised Comprehensive Plan and review/approval at the Adoption
Hearing. In this way governmental and private resources will be brought to bear on
-achieving common goals, objectives and policies.
GOAL 1
To create and support an economic environment in Franklin County that is conducive to
the prosperity of all residents by optimizing the most desirable opportunities for
sustainable economic growth, expansion, better jobs and stable revenue.
Objective 1.1
Establish within six months of the adoption of the Comprehensive plan a fundable
Franklin County Economic Development Council (FCEDC) that brings together the
resources of the public, private and not-for-profit sectors to coordinate a community-
based effort for implementing economic development programs and to expand and
diversify the county's economic base.


SPolicy 1.1.1





Policy 1.1.2


Upon adoption of the Comprehensive Plan, designate the existing
Economic Development Committee formed by the Apalachicola and
Carrabelle Chambers Of Commerce as the working group to develop and
propose an organizational plan for the FCEDC that meets the
requirements of Florida State Statutes.


The FCEDC shall be the designated liaison between the Board of County
Commissioners, the local business community, and all other regional or
state wide economic development organizations, including but not limited
to; Opportunity Florida, Florida's Great Northwest and Enterprise Florida
on matters relating to the promotion of the locally acceptable and
sustainable economic strategies and initiatives.


Policy 1.1.3


Within the first six months after its formation, the FCEDC shall conduct a
facilitated workshop to establish the basis for the FCEDC to expeditiously
develop and implement a long-range strategic economic plan that
considers all potential areas for appropriate economic growth, as well as
obstacles and potential solutions.


Objective 1.2
Ensure that all businesses have affordable access to utilities, transportation, and
communication infrastructure.
Policy 1.3.1 Facilitate the development of infrastructure adequate to retain and attract
business. Requisite infrastructure includes clean drinking water; reliable
and affordable electric power; natural gas; ecologically sound solid waste
and sewage treatment and disposal systems; safe and well-maintained
roads and streets; storm water retention and disposal systems; and
communication systems including telephone and broadband internet
access. Fire and police protection are essential services for economic
growth.


Policy 1.3.2 Collaborate with developers to ensure that both physical and human
infrastructure is in place to support new economically viable and
sustainable growth arising as a result of any new development plans. This
will require major developments to address the availability of "affordable
housing", so that any increased demand for support services resulting
from the development plan can be met with the existing affordable
housing. Should the affordable housing capacity of those support
services be deficient, the developers will offer appropriate mitigations.
Should any development require mitigation in the physical or human
infrastructure, the use of impact fees, etc. and other developer
contributions to infrastructure improvements shall be considered.
Public/private partnerships should be considered as an effective way to
accomplish economic goals.


Objective 1.4
Maintain and enhance the Apalachicola Municipal Airport and the Business and
Commercial Park.
Policy 1.4.1 Pursue all financial options for the construction and development of

Citizen's Committee
Reviews Ten Issues In The

Draft Comprehensive Plan

At Tuesday's meeting of the Franklin County Commission, May 3,
2005, Administrative Director Alan Pierce distributed copies of the
Citizen's Committee review of the draft comprehensive plan, and read
into the record his comments with the plan. The committee's review
is published below:
Issue 1: Approval for large-scale developments should be preceded
by a comprehensive assessment.of the suitability of the land for de-
velopment along with community benefits and impacts. The Citizen
Advisory Committee requests that the language similar to that con-
tained in Section 11.12, and 11.13 should remain in the comprehen-
sive plan. Do you support this?
Issue 2: The Citizen Advisory Committee recommends that the
Franklin County Commission maintain oversight and control over
future large scale developments and that citizen input be part of the
approval process, and thus urges that no future land use amend-
ments (FLUMs) be included in this Comprehensive Plan. Do you agree
that each large scale land use amendment requires evaluation on it
own merits?
Issue 3: Do you feel it is appropriate for Franklin County to set poli-
cies to work with municipalities to identify and seek means to con-
serve specific waterfront areas for set aside as commercial seafood
zones and public access permits to the water?
Issue 4: Do you support the following policies for maintaining the
community's unique character and culture.
A. Maintaining beach and water access for traditional
uses including cast netting and fishing.
B. Having an ordinance to control obtrusive signage such
as billboards.
C. Having an ordinance to prevent obtrusive nighttime
illumination.
D. Having a limited property tax exemption for homes to
have front porches to encourage a sense of community
and community interaction.
Issue 5: The business community has recommended several policies
for economic development for inclusion in the comprehensive plan.
Do you support these policies?
Issue 6: Affordable housing has become limited in Franklin County.
It's important that housing be available to median income workers
such as police, teachers, seafood workers, and others. Do you sup-
port including policies for affordable housing in the comprehensive
plan?
Issue 7: The committee recommends that a policy be included to
identify and enact means to reduce homeowners' insurance premi-
ums under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Do you
support this?
Issue 8: The Citizen Advisory Committee urges that land use changes
for large scale developments adjacent to municipalities should be done
in coordination with those municipalities as required by State plan-
ning regulations. Do you support this policy?
Issue 9: The Citizen Advisory Committee recommends designation
the area norti of Hwy 98, arid Rt. 30A west of 12th St. in Carrabelle
as delineation of the Coastal High Hazard area. Do you agree?
Issue 10: The committee recommends that the St. James Overlay not
be included with the comprehensive plan, or if included, only as an
informational appendix representing recommendations by the major
landholder in the area for possible future land use and developments
over the next 50 years.


Riverkeeper from Page 4

With the Florida Governor, Florida Legislature, State Agencies, and
most riparian counties opposing dredging; a grim economic benefits'
analysis, and potential to begin real restoration of our river system
on the horizon, the decision to deny dredging is reasonable and sets
the stage for Congress to follow sound political policy decisions and
also deauthorize dredging and fund restoration.

Public Hearing-
Second readings of City Ordi-
nance 366, 367 and 368 were
read and passed.
First readings of 369, 370 and
371 requested annexation of .87
acres, one rezoning from A-1 to
R-1 and one rezoning from R-1 to
C-1. The latter is next to the
health department.
A note on the aforementioned:
citizen comments at this meeting
caused Mayor Brown and the
council to agree, and instruct the
City Clerk, that future meeting
agendas will add plain English
information to the legalese de-
scriptions. The consensus from
the attendees was that almost no
one has ever known exactly where
the subject parcels actually were.
From now on, these newspaper
accounts will be understandable
also.

Unfinished Business
1 -11. Baskerville-Donovan up-
dates on ongoing water/ sewer
projects:

tion and Force Main- 45% com-
plete @ $1.778 Million paid.

sign-River Road part is complete,

Carrabelle project.
Perc ponds at FCI (Franklin Cor-
rectional Institution)- At design
and survey stage. 30-60 days to
start of construction.
Well, pump and piping at FCI-
iping part is complete. This
$50-75,000 partial project will
increase water "withdrawal" for
city use by 166,000 gal/day.
Hydraulic modeling and design for
Timber Island water tank- tabled,
with mayor's offer to negotiate the
fee due to large first figure from
Baskerville-Donovan.
Approved Change Order 4 for the
Timber Island Master Lift Station
and Force Main Project.
DOT requires an emergency gen-
erator and site work, which will
add $50,999 to the project.
85% of the increase will be paid
by the existing grant/loan.
13. Gene Langston requested site
plan approval only for the old Top
of The Hill project, now named Rio
Carrabella. Changed 79-unit den-
sity to 69 units. At Roger Bybee's
questioning.
Mr. Langston volunteered that the
old Post Office structure on Ma-
rine Street would be preserved
and used in the development. Ap-
proved.
14. AMVETS request for help from
the city to acquire 1 or 2 acres for
their use. Recently, old American
Legion property reverted to the
city when the organization folded
here, and Carrabelle received a
windfall $500,000 when Paul
Osterbye bought it to add to his
Angler's Harbor subdivision.
Commissioners voted to look into
the possibility.

15. Olin Granthum's request to
approve his site development plan
for Fish Tales, a 3-acre commer-
cial development on the Nero's
site, was approved.

New Business
The pace was broken temporarily
at this point, when citizen com-
ment prompted Jim Brown to or-
der developers to submit all de-
velopment drawings to be posted
at City Hall a minimum of 8 days
before the meeting. The 8-day rule
has always been in place for
agenda items. In addition, a back
table will be instituted next meet-
ing where all drawings will be on
display before each meeting.
1. Moorings marina site plan was
withdrawn.
2. A seemingly simple request by
Ryan Wilson and Matt
Christianson of Coldwell Banker
to split 4 city lots into 5 lots
caused over 30 minutes of argu-
ment. The subject of most of it was
the 50 x 100 minimum lot size:
did that mean exactly 50 x 100 or
would something like 45 x 105 be
just as good? Most current lots
are not exactly 50 x 100, but the
1992 Comp Plan grandfathered
many in, with wacky sizes. Finally
Raymond Williams moved to table
the item, and it was.
3. Approved Milton and Shirley
Cox's request to turn 2 lots from
east/west to north/south.
4. Disapproved same petitioners'
wish, and that of Johnnie and
June Gray and Tommy and
Candace Griffith, to get Avenue F
abandoned for 220 feet. Tabled for
study.


5. Approved, after some discus-
sion, Dave Haney's request to
build a building on Lots 11, 12
and 13 of Block 8 (192). That
means 2nd Street @ Avenue A
East. The reason for the delay in
approval was the fact that the
building will be metal, without
typical residential windows and
appearance.
6. Approved Long Pointe's devel-
opment order. This approves pro-
ceeding with Phase 1, which will
include 126 condos. Objection let-
ter by Knut Rittweger, leader
among residents objecting to the
project, was read into the record.
7. Jim Bachman read into the
record a petition form, by regis
tered voters of Carrabelle, to im-
pose a development moratorium
on all new annexations and
project work until after the next
(2006) elections.
8. Approved that all new
Carrabelle developments will be
designed with curb and gutter in
place. This construction will stop
crumbling of road edgings, in ad-
dition to directing rainwater flow.
9. Development Standards item
was withdrawn.
10. Approved extension of access
to the sewer line running to St.
James area to local property own-
ers.

(313) The Northwest Florida Expeditions of Clarence
Bloomfield Moore. The classic studies of Archeologist
Clarence Bloomfield Moore have been, republished and
available from the Chronicle Book-shop in very limited
copies. When Clarence Bloomfield Moore cruised the riv-
ers of Florida in search of prehistoric artifacts a century
ago, he laid the groundwork for archaeological investiga-
tions to follow. This volume reflects Moore's fieldwork
along the northwest Florida coast, the most
archaeologically rich area of the state, as well as up the
Apalachicola River to the Chattahoochee and Flint Riv-
ers in Alabama and Georgia. Here readers will share
Moore's first look at the northwest Florida area in 1901 -
1903 and additional observations made in 1918 during
what was to be his last field season. Moore's works re-
veal ceramics, tools, skeletal remains, and exotic arti-

(192) Vivian Sherlock's bi-
ography of John Gorrie,
The Fever Man, is available
once again after being
out-of-print for more than
a decade. This is the story
of John Gorrie, young phy-
sician who invented an "ice
machine" that many argue
was a forerunner to air con-
ditioning dozens of years
later. His cooling device was
developed to provide relief
to his suffering yellow fever
patients. A museum in
Apalachicola to this day
marks the work of John
Gorrie just across from his
last resting place in Gorrie
Square, down from Trinity
Church. This book tells
what is now known about
Dr. Gorrie, his work and his
ice machine. Paperback,
New, 151 pp. Bookshop
price = $10.00
