Story and Photos By Geri Moore
Before the 16th Century
On the peaceful shores of the Wakulla and St. Marks river junction is
an interesting piece of history, ready to he learned and explored by all
of us today. Through the labyrinth of time nine nations have come to
this outpost arid many battles have been fought here. Stormed first
by the Spanish ten by pirates, Indians, British, and Confederate armies,
the fort withstood many advances. Yet today, it is so peaceful and
beautiful, sitting here looking over the merging of the two rivers. It is
almost unbelievable that all of the struggles that took place here now
seem to have faded and the ghosts have been put to rest.
Native people first inhabited Florida over 12.000 years ago. Before
Spanish exploration into the New World took place, the Wakulla and
St. Marks river junction was settled by the Apalachee Indian Nation.
The Apalachee was a powerful, centrally organized and independent
Nation. When the European ships first landed on Florida in the 16"'
century, the area was well populated and thriving.
The Apalachee seem to appear first in history with the chronicles of
the Panifilo de Narvaez expedition. These explorers spent nearly a
month in an Apalachee town in 1628 hut because of the constant
attacks by the native people, the Narvaez expedition chose to move to
a coastal town. In 1539, Hernando de,Soto, along with 600 men, fol-
lowed basically the same route as Narvaet did. Banners were hung to
clearly mark the river's entrance. (A lighthouse now stands near that
site.)
It is estimated that 7,000 Apalachee.Indians were living in North Florida
in 1650. The Apalachee developed farming communities, cultivating
the fertile soil between the Ochlocknee and Aucilla rivers to grow maize
(corn), squash and various types of beans, tobacco and other minor
crops. The tribe also relied on hunting and fishing. In 1655 a small-
pox epidemic spread among the native people.
Florida's aboriginal population of about 100 000 was nearly decimated
by exposure to deadly diseases, that were brought by the European
settlers. Even the common cold was deadly to the native populations.
Constant wars with Spain and other Europeans contributed to the
near extinction of early Indians of Florida As early as 1620 Florida
Indians were taken as slaves. This also contributed to the killing off of
the aboriginal people. With the coming of the Spanish explorers in-
vaders, this beautiful land where the rivers met, became a place of
struggle and conflict for the next 400 years. Much blood tainted the
now peaceful waters. During the 1600s the Spanish also brought many
items to Florida that the natives had never seen before such as heads,
bells, mirrors, scissors, and chain mail. Cattle, pigs and horses were
also introduced at this time, as well as a variety of crops like peaches,
figs oranges, wheat and watermelon.
By 1679 the Spanish Governor of Florida started construction on the
first fort built at. The junction of the Wakulla and St. Marks rivers.
The logs used were coated with lime to give the appearance of stone.
The fort stood only three years before pirates figured out the camou-
flage and stormed the fort, looting it and burning it to the ground. Not
until 1718 did Captain Jose Primo de Ribera arrive to construct a
second wooden fort.
Finally in 1739, construction began on a stone fort and the fort was
less than half complete with it was given over to the English in 1763
as a result of the war with Spain and the treaty signed. However, in
1787, Spain regained control of the fort, reoccupying for 13 more
years.
Military Cemetery
The Fort St. Marks military cemetery was discovered during routine
archaeological surface reconnaissance during the late summer of 1965.
The excavation of Fort St. Marks military cemetery was conducted
-under the worst possible research conditions. The field crew worked
for ten weeks in mud from knee to waist deep. The crew was more
than pleased when the project was concluded. The documentary and
artifactual evidence strongly suggest that the cemetery dates from the
first U.S. military occupation. The relative scarcity of uniform but-
tons and buckles indicates either that the deceased were buried in
partial uniforms perhaps directly from sick bed, or the dress code at

Judge Reviewing Litigation
Against Larry Applebee By

North Floridai Medical
Center Over Non-Compete

Provision

Second Circuit Judge William Gary presided over the lawsuit filed
against Physician Assistant Larry Applebee by North Florida Medical
Center over a non-compete provision in Mr. Applebee's contract for
employment with the Eastpoint medical facility on Monday, January
23rd.
Mr. Applebee was terminated by North Florida Medical but North
Florida Medical argued that Applebee was still bound by the contract
barring competing in medical services locally for a period of two years.
Mr. Applebee had been re-employed by Dr. Sanuallah, Apalachicola
late last year, 2005. North Florida Medical started a lawsuit against
Applebee asking for an injunction against him and damages for the
loss of patients at North Florida Medical.
The plaintiff in this civil litigation, North Florida Medical, through
their attorney Charles Dodson (Tallahassee) mad, an opening state-
ment, outlining the history of North Florida Medical, and identifying
their revenue sources including federal grant money, private pay,
Medicare, Medicaid, and a sliding scale for those without insurance.
North Florida Medical operates eight medical centers, primarily in
underserved,' rural areas. Larry Applebee was recruited by North
Florida Medical upon his graduation from Physician Assistant train-
ing in Washington state in 2003.
The defense attorney for Larry Applebee deferred his opening state-
ment as the plaintiffs case in chief was started with their first wit-
ness, Mr. Joel Montgomery, Chief Executive Officer of the federally
qualified health center located in Eastpoint. Mr. Montgomery pro-
vided information on the hiring of Larry Applebee and his signing an
employment contract including a non-compete provision, should Mr.
Applebee leave his position before his contract was fulfilled. Mr. Mont-
gomery also testified that after Mr. Applebee left his position with
North Florida Medical, about 75 patients at North Florida Medical
requested that their medical records be transferred to the medical
offices of Dr. Sanuallah and Dr. Nitsios. Mr. Montgomery'insisted
that Applebee's departure created the loss of 75 or more patients.
Upon cross-examination of Mr. Montgomery by defense attorney Garvin
Bowden, the physician Dr. Nancy Chorba did not sign the same kind
of non-compete agreement; She excluded some portion of the geo-
graphical territory covered by a non-compete provision, allowing her
to practice in Apalachicola and Port St. Joe. The defense attorney also
brought out the fact that another former North Florida Medical em-
ployee was also permitted to alter the non-compete provisions. As
other plaintiffs witnesses were called to testify, the defense estab-
lished that there were several alterations in the noh-compete provi-
sions North Florida Medical had contracted with throughout their eight
clinic locations, establishing on the record that there were not uni-
form and consistent applications of that contract provision.
Moreover, Garvin Bowden challenged Mr. Montgomery's conclusion
that the 75 Datients had become patients of Drs. Sanuallah and Dr.
Nitsios, indicating that the Montgomery testimony about the records
transfer-requests did not prove that those persons actually became
new patients of Drs. Sanuallah and Dr. Nitsios by their employment
of Applebee. The plaintiff called Don Porterfield, North Florida Medical's
Chief Financial Officer, who developed a measure of damages condi-
tioned by the Larry Applebee departure, and re-employment in
Apalachicola. Porterfield claimed that the 75 patients averaged $92
each visit three times yearly, and over a ten year period, would amount
to $210.000 or more. Later, when Larry Applebee testified in his own
defense, he stated that he did not recruit former patients to his new
Apalachicola medical location.
Mr. Porterfield also testified that the relocation expenses that North
Florida Medical paid Larry Applebee amounted to about $8000. The
plaintiff wanted to collect these fees they had paid to Applebee, but
Carvin Bowden quickly pointed out that if Mr. Applebee had been
terminated by Mr. Montgomery, he had waived his right to recover
those fees due to contract provisions. Some inconsistencies in Mr.
Montgomery's deposition and his testimony in court regarding whether
in fact North Florida Medical was suffering from revenue losses; the
defense attorney, on cross-exam, pointed out that the Montgomery
deposition taken in early January 2006 had indicated their medical
business was "coming back..."
Dr. Eugene Charbonneau, D.O. was called as a witness for North
Florida Medical, to testify as to the role and functions of a physician
assistant. Excerpts from the Larry Applebee deposition as to his role
and functions performed for Drs. Sanuallah and Dr. Nitsios were read
into the record at this point. The Office Manager of the Eastpoint
Medical Center testified on the transfer of patient records: Andrew
Berman, President of the Association of Florida Community Health
Centers, was also called as a plaintiff witness despite the objections
of defense counsel as not relevant.
The defense case-in-reply began with the testimony of Ms. Lisa Marsh,
statewide coordinator of the Healthservice Corps. Dr. Tamara Marsh
testified on her role as chairperson of the Franklin County health
council, and the scarcity of healthcare providers in Franklin County.
Larry Applebee had five months remaining on his commitment to the
National Health Service. Dr. Nancy Chorba also testified, affirming
the extreme scarcity of healthcare providers in Franklin County, es-
pecially compounded if Larry Applebee would not be available. County
Commissioner Noah Lockley, Jr. also affirmed the scarcity of healthcare
providers in the county. Florida Statutes allows the courts to stop
enforcing a non-compete contract if enforcing it would be harmful to
public health.
Larry Applebee testified in his own behalf, describing his education
and experience as a physician's assistant, and details about a job
offer from a medical facility in North Carolina, which Mr. Applebee
later rejected. He told the court that North Florida Medical still owed
him for vacation time. He went to work for Drs. Sanuallah and Nitsios
as he could not function as an independent entity, as a physician
could. His job functions at his new employment are different from his
assigned responsibilities at North Florida Medical. On cross-exam by
the plaintiffs attorney, Larry Applebee reiterated his strong desire to
remain working in the health field in Franklin County.
The defense called Dr. Nancy Chorba as a witness. She was Larry
Applebee supervising physician at North Florida Medical when she
was employed by them. She affirmed that her non-compete provi-
sions were not the same as Larry Applebee, and that primary care
providers were scarce in this rural county. In estimating the acute
scarcity of middle-level providers, she referred to the recent problem

experience by Dana Holton, Carrabelle.
At the end of the hearing, the plaintiff made a motion for the re-
quested injunction against Mr. Applebee, but Judge Gary asked both
attorneys to submit their written arguments by Friday.

Naming the New County
Park in Carrabelle
For Board Action: Members of the
Carrabelle community have con-
tacted me via letters requesting"
that the new Recreation Complex'
in Carrabelle bare t nan
State Representative Will S.
Kendrick. In making their request,
the letters cited the Representa-
tives efforts in creating jobs
through the construction of'the
new prison and making the park
a reality through state-funded
grants. For your review and ap-
proval, I have attached copies of
the letters to this report. The
Board approved the naming of the
Sports Complex after Representa-
tive Kendrick.
From Susan M. Barnes:
My name is Susan M. Barnes. I
am the mother of four boys. Please
grant me the opportunity to say
thanks to you, The Franklin
County Board of County Commis-
sioners, and our own State Rep-.
resentative Mr. Will S. Kendrick.
Mr. Kendrick, a Franklin County
native, has led a very successful
political career. Yet, he has never
forgotten where he came from.
How many times, have we heard
individuals running for different
offices say, "You can count on
me!" Then, nine times out of ten,
those same individuals forget
about you the minute they gain
office. Mr. Kendrick is not one of
those people. He has gone over
and beyond, for the people of
Franklin County. He has worked
very hard and diligently with the
Florida Department of Corrections
and Secretary, Mr. James Crosby.
With the work of many people, the
new Franklin Correctional Insti-


tution, has been built in
Carrabelle. This Institution pro-
vides many opportunities for the
people of Franklin County, as well
as surrounding counties. People
who have worked all their lives liv-
ing off the water, now have the
opportunity'to have jobs on land.
They now have reliable incomes,
retirement benefits, insurance
coverage and hope for their fu-
tures. The new Institution also
provides many benefits to the
community by utilizing, inmate
work force.
Mr. Kendrick has also procured
grants and other monies for the
Franklin County Youth Leagues.
With this money, the County has
been able to build the new
Franklin County Sports Complex.
This Complex will be utilized by
adults and children alike, ensur-
ing a community that is proud of
who they are and where they come
from.
With much gratitude and appre-
ciation, I would like to take this
opp6ttunity to submit my request
for the new Franklin County
Sports Complex to be named af-
ter our very own State Represen-
tative, Mr. Will S. Kendrick.
From Richard "Red" Murray:
Thanks to Mr. Will S. Kendrick,
the Board of County Commission-
ers and yourself we now have a
new Franklin County Sports Com-
plex. This Complex will be benefi-
cial to our children, as well as
adults alike. Mr. Kendrick has
found different grants and mon-
ies that have made this. Sports
Complex a reality..
Personally, I don't think the people
of our Community realize the im-
portance of Children's Sports.
Sport.teaches children the impor-
tafice of being, a team player. It
teaches respect for one self, and
other members of the team. It
gives children confidence, and the
mentality that you can. do, any-
thing \ ou set .your-naihd toAIt alsd.
teaches children that sometimes
you may stumble. ationg the road,.
but all you have to do is brush
yourself off, get back up; -and firy
it again.
Franklin County has .gone
through a lot of changes in the last
few years. We have seen our way
of life, living off the water, go
through many different legal
battles. Most we have lost due to
what other people believe is ben-
eficial to the seafood industry.
Now people who have worked all
their lives on the water, have to
find jobs on land.
Mr. Kendrick has worked hard to
help the people of Franklin
County, to find the means to make
a living on land. Mr. Kendrick and
The Florida Department of Cor-
;.-rections, have joiatd together to
make a-way for--the people of
SFranklin County, and.surround-
ing areas to6make a'lMNng. We now
have the new Franklin Correc-
tional Institution. This Institution
helps many people, in many dif-
ferent ways. It allows people to
have a steady income, no matter
what the season is, or if the Bay
is opened or closed. It gives fami-
lies insurance coverage, retire-
ment benefits, as well as pride in
our Community. The Community

dance of sand, the scale of the
project is now changing to evalu-
ate whether it is cost effective to
put only sand on the beach and
not build T-groins. The commu-
nity does not want the groins. The
,trade-off would be to use the
money that would have been
spent on groins to put more sand
on the beach. The analysis is be-
ing done to see how much more
sand can be put there and how
long it will stay. This analysis
should be completed in, 2-3
months.
However, for a number of reasons,
no beach renourishment will be
done this hurricane season so for
this summer the Alligator Point
road is once again at risk. The
Engineers will be recommending
some short term protective action
for the road for this hurricane sea-
ison, and that will also be done in
a few months.


The residents were also advised
that while the county will try to
fund the initial beach
renourishment, there will need to
be a funding source created to pay
for the required maintenance.
Those estimated costs will also he
available in 2-3 months. The resi-
dents were advised to go to a
website created by the Cape San
Bias community which is also fac-
ing the same dilemma. The
website was highly recommended
by DEP and the address is:
savethecape.com.
The county does have an out-
standing DEP permit request from
the time before Hurricane Dennis
to extend the rock revetment that
was ultimately destroyed by Den-
nis. DEP staff arc getting ready to
deny the permit because of inac-
tivity on the permit. It is a permit
the county is not going to pursue.
Mike Dombrowski recommends
the Board withdraw the permit
application rather than have the
paper trail showing a denial.
Inform Board that DCA has found
the Comp Plan amendment in
compliance that was approved by
the Board for the project known
as The Soundings.
Provide Board with copy of notice
I signed allowing the City of
Carrabelle to move forward with
the sewer project on River Road
as approved by the County Com-
mission several months ago.
Board action to accept settlement
agreement which resolves a dis-
pute between neighbors on St.
George Island. A Mr. Peters had.
brought fill in to his lot which
caused a problem for the neigh-
bor. Mr. Peters went to BOA to get
a variance to remove part of the,
fill, and the neighbor objected be-
cause of concern over drainage
issues the remaining fill might-
create. The BOA denied the vari-.
ance, partly out of concern for the
neighbor. The Board tabled the
issue to see if the neighbors could
work things out. The neighbors
have now worked out their.differ-
ences. -The Board approved. '

Ted Mosteller, Airport Advisory,
Committee Chairman, has pro-
vided the following report. The
FDOT encourage the County to.
apply for a Joint Participation
Agreement (JPA) for the' following
projects. These projects either
have no match requirement, or

Steve Watkins-Hanway
Lot Configuration
Steve Watkins representing the
Hanways (Dave and Harper) came
before the board to make a re-
quest for a lot.configuration for a
property at St. Teresa Beach-
This was a public hearing and a


notice had been published. Two
lots in St. Teresa at Perkins
Beach, unit 4 block I, lot 3 and
half of lot 4 were the consider -
ation. The owners desire was to
combine the lot and a half and
reconfigure them into two propor-
tional lots each large enough to
accommodate a dwelling. The
neighbors (Messers and others not
mentioned) represented by Nick
Yonclas were in consultation con-
cerning an easement for an ac-
ceptable right-of-way from this
land-locked property to highway
98. The debate seemed rather aca-
demic. The board approved the
configuration proposal contingent
on an accepted easement agree-
ment between the neighbors and
the Hanways.

Steve Otwell-Seafood
Task Force
t
aMister Grady Levins, a local sea-
food dealer, gave a short presen-
tation and introduced Dr. Steve
Otwell. 'We have been working on
the formation of a task force for .
at least six months now. What we
need today is that the County
Commission formally recognizes
us as an entity. I would now like
to bring Dr. Otwell up here to ex-
plain our intentions."
"I have a quick request," explained
Dr. Otwell. "The Seafood industry
(via a series of past meetings) has
formed a Seafood Industry Task
Force. And' this Task Force has
Sput tgetheir a request. They
Would like the Commission to do
two things. They would like for you
to recognize this Task Force and
then provide them with your co-
operation and support. They have
a Board of Directors and-a mem-
ber of.the County Commission is
.on that Board. Likewise we have,
tried to represent the Dealers Ass.
and the Fishermen's Ass. There
will.be a meeting on January J 9th
with the harvesters to further in-
tegratethem with this task force.".
David McLa'in, of the River Keep-
ers.Association, was approved. by
all ofthe members of'the new Task
Force Board of Directors as the
official coordinator for the group.
Bill Mahan, County Extension di-
rector, will be an advisor among
others. 'That is the current orga-
nizational structure.'They would
like thisBoard to recognize that
'(the' structirf: "They are con-.
cerned about the productivity of
the Bay; they are concerned about
access to wate-front; they are con-
cerned about processing facilities
and where they will be located in
the future; and they are most par-
-ticularly concerned about the
water quality in the Bay that will
be influenced by the continuing
development around Franklin
County. They need your coopera-
tion." A grant of seventy-five thou-
sand dollars had been given to the,
County for a Seafood feasibility

Force lto'facilii:l.t- ihis fea hibilitv
, s;dtu and coordinate it.with other,
studies and also to provide an or-
ganized, active and interested
group for this purpose.
Dr. Otwell then informed the
Board of an organized trip to
Washington D.C. that is being
conducted by the Seafood Indus-
try throughout the Gulf Coast for
the purpose of lobbying the Fed-
eral legislators on behalf of the
Seafood'Industry. In the past this
lobbying technique has gained
funding for the Seafood lab and
shell transplanting efforts among
other things. As a consequence of
the hurricane, Dr. Otwell ex-
plained to the Board. "There are
large sums of money up 'there.
And if we don't ask, we will not
receive. So we need to go up
there."
Mr. Levens then returned to the

EDITORIAL & COMMENTARY


Franklin County Health

Council

January 19, 2006
By Becky Gibson

A. New Business
A. Ron Wolff, Interim Administrator, Weems Memorial Hospital. Mr.
Wolff presented an update on the situation at Weems. He stated that
they are currently in the process of changing and setting up vendors,
establishing membership with purchasing groups, and purchasing
malpractice insurance. He reported that there are currently no out-
standing violations with the state as all previous violations have been
corrected. He also stated that he doesn't think GE, the loan company
tied to DasSee, has any claim on revenues generated after the county
took over the hospital, He reported that the ER is currently being
covered with a physician in house at times and a physician on call
with mid-level providers in house at other times. Billing for services
will begin as soon as the transfer of the license is completed. The
hospital will utilize an outside billing company initially, aid all reim-
bursements will be sent back to the county. They also plan on hiring
a financial counselor to' assist patients with billing and insurance
concerns and to start identifying charity care.
Mr. Wolff discussed some of the fixture goals of the hospital. He stated
that Blackhawk wanted to have 24/7 physician coverage for the ER.
He stated that volume is the key to success for the hospital. Some of
the beds at the hospital can be used as swing beds, which produces a
greater reimbursement from Medicare. He stressed the importance of
keeping the critical access designation for the hospital as this allows
greater reimbursement from Medicare also. Blackhawk wants to in-
crease the number of physicians on staff, and to help establish and
work with a Hospital Advisory Board. He stated that he would like to
attract other services such as a sleep lab or GI surgical services. And
as growth occurs, Mr. Wolff stated that a new facility will be needed
and that Blackhawk wanted to help that happen.
Alan Pierce, County Administrator, presented an update on the sta-
tus of the license transfer, stating that he expects the transfer to be
completed within the next few days. He also reported that it has cost.
the county $300,008.00 to cover the hospital for the first two weeks,
and will cost the county an estimated $1 million to cover the hospital
for 3 months. He stated that The County Commissioners are comfort-
able with Blackhawk and that they want to transfer the license to
Blackhawk as soon as possible as it does not want to run the hospital
and it doesn't have the funds to do so long tern.

B. Art Cooper, Public Health Associates, Inc.
Wesley Tice of the Apalachicola Health Department introduced Mr.
Cooper, who will be performing a Community Needs Assessment. Mr.
Cooper stated that the data his company collects Using citizen sur-
veys will be analyzed uniquely for Franklin County. He expects to
have the final report before the end of June.

C. Sylvia Adkinson, Eastpoint Medical Center
Ms. Adkinson introduced Dr. Eugene Charbonneau of North Florida
Medical FQHC who read the letter from the Department of Health &
Human Services, which was a response to allegations made in a letter
from the Franklin County Board of Commissioners. The response let-
ter essentially cleared North Florida Medical FQHC of the allegations.
Dr. Charbonneau requested assistance in becoming a part of the com-
munity, and that if anyone has any future concerns regarding the
FQHC to address them directly with him. Ms. Adkinson announced
that they will be getting a new physician as soon as his Florida license
is completed.
D. Larry Applebee
Dr. Marsh requested input on the healthcare provider shortage. Dr.:
Charbonneau stated that due to the legal situation with Larry Applebee,
he could not discuss it. The overall consensus of the Council,was that,
the County could not afford to lose any providers.

E. Hospital Board
Gayle Dodds was elected by the Council to be the representative from
the Council to the Hospital Board when formed and if the Council is
asked to provide a representative.

F. Letter to Commissioners
The Council decided to not send a letter to the County Commission-
ers addressing the Dec. 20, 2005 county commission meeting.
G. Bylaws
Dr. Marsh stated that there is now a rough draft for the Franklin
County Health Council Bylaws and asked for any general sugges-
tions. Becky Gibson will send a copy of the draft to all council mem-
bers for review and recommendations.

H. Housekeeping
Gayle Dodds agreed to stay on as Co-chair and Dr. Marsh agreed to
stay on as Chair.
Dana Holton announced that Dr. David Pierce would be his supervis-
ing physician for his practice.
Dr. Miniat posed the question of conflict of interest if Dana and Dr.
Pierce continue to serve together on the Council. The Council decided
that this would not create a conflict.

S : Q. How can a criminal record be sealed or
expunged?
A. There are certain steps to follow to qualify
for a record to be sealed or expunged. When
a criminal history record is sealed, the pub-
lic will not have access to it; howeirer, certain governmental or related
entities do have access. When a;record is expunged, these entities
which would have access to a sealed record will be informed of the
expungement but would not have:access to the record itself without a
court order. To access detailed information about the process, go to
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's web page at
www.fdle.state.fl.us/expunge. To begin, a Certificate of Eligibility must
be applied for in order to file yoir petition to seal or expunge. The
issuance of the Certificate by FDLE indicates that you are statutorily
eligible for the relief being requested.
To procure the Certificate, you must first complete Section A of the
application, you must be fingerprinted by authorized law enforcement,
and you must provide a certifiedidispositiorl of the case to be seated
or expunged which can be obtained for a fee from the Clerk's Office in
the county in which the charge was'brought. A non-refundable money
order or cashier's check for $75.00 payable to FDLE must accompany
the application. If you're requesting expungement. you must also have
the state attorney or statewide prosecutor complete Section B of the
application. A person may only seal or expunge one arrest record in
one proceeding, and there are requirements governing the charges
that can be sealed or expunged. Application forms and general infor-
mation-packets are available front the Clerk's Office.

Boyd Announces Telecom

Priorities To Help Rural

America

Congressional Rural Caucus hosts forums on the future of
rural telecom
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida), Co-Chairman of the Con-
gressional Rural Caucus (CRC) joined his.colleagues in the CRC to
unveil the telecommunications priorities for -2006. As Congress pre-
pares to reauthorize the 1996 Telecom mun ica t on: Act. the CTRC will
work to ensure thatall Arhericans regardless of where they:live;1 hve
access to affordable and reliable communications services.
"Rural America cannot be left behind when it comes to national policy
decisions," said Congressman Boyd. "As we re-examine the Telecom-
munications Act this year. We must encompass the needs of all types
of communities so that all Americans can have access to advanced
broadband services at affordable rates."
Additionally, the CRC will host a series of Member briefings to pro-
mote fair and affordable access to telecommunications services across
the country.
The Legislative principles that will guide the CRC's telecommunica-
tions work this year are:
Strengthening the Universal Service Fund (USE) to improve access
to telephone services and other resources in rural areas
Improving interearrier compensation to help utilize more networks
Enhancing network access and interconnection
Expanding access to advanced broadband in rural areas-essential
for rural America to remain competitive
"We must have fair prices for high-speed Internet, not only to retain
and attract good jobs in rural America, but also to improve the overall
quality of our lives," Boyd stated. "The small telecommunications pro-
viders in our rural districts represent the sense of community and
entrepreneurial spirit that made America great and' I will work with
the CRC and Congress to ensure that these companies have a voice in
developing communications laws for the 21st century."
The CRC is a bipartisan collection of more than 140 members of the
House of Representatives committed to strengthening and revitaliz-
ing rural communities across America.

Franklin On The List For

Upgrade Of Emergency

Operations Center


State officials have identified 22
Florida counties, including
Franklin County, that do not meet
a national standard for surviving
a Category 3. hurricane. State
Emergency Director Craig Fugate
has expressed considerable inter-
est in upgrading the vulnerable
emergency operations centers,
perhaps through legislative fund-
ing as the request of Governor
Bush.


tion Committee has given the
funding idea an informal endorse-
ment. Franklin's Emergency Op-
erations Director, Mr. Butch
Baker, has not received any spe-
cific proposals but speculated that
the Franklin Center probably was
nominated to the list based, on
age. Whether the money would
officially be available depends
upon the budgetary process in the
state legislature this session.

with regards to this trip to Wash-
ington D.C. "There has been 199
million 800 thousand dollars ap-
propriated for the nursery, oyster
and poultry producers. The nurs-
ery and poultry producers will get
the lion's share of it but we don't
want the State of Louisiana to get
all the rest of it. I will be in Wash-
ington myself the week of the sev-
enth of next month, We are going
to need a couple of thousand dol-
lars to send the (Task Force) rep-
-resentative-of course, I pay my
own way; I don't ask for any
money whatsoever, but I don't
think that Dave McLain needs to
take it out of his pocket to go up
there and be with us and ask for
'funds. We have been overlooked
many, many times. I want to see
*a slush find created for the
Soystermen. If we have a re-occur-
rence of Red Tide we will have
funding for them-to put them to
work putting shell in the Bay.
Please consider funding, maybe a
'couple of thousand dollars to send

Report
Critical Shoreline Application:
consideration of a request was

pier on Lot 18 Heron Bay Village,
2201 Egret Point Road. St. George

This application met all state and
local requirements. The requests
was submitted by GEA, INC. agent
for Don Scott, applicant. This re-
quest was approved by the Board.
Preliminary Plat Approval: a con-
sideration of a request for a Pre-
liminary Plat approval of a 37 lot
subdivision named "Hidden Har-
bor Phrase II" on a 40.93 acre
parcel lying in Section 5, Town-
ship & South, Range 8 West, Alli-
gator Point, Franklin County,
Florida. Request submitted by
GEA, Inc., agent for ALP FLA De-
velopment, applicant. This re-
quest was approved by the Board.

ation of a request for Final Plat
approval of a 3 lot subdivision
named "Cedar Oak Landing" a
3.32 acre parcel lying in Sectioi
21, Township 8 South, Range 8

This would be a four storied struc-
ture; the base floor being commer-


EDITRIAL & COMMENTARY


cial and the top three levels being
residential. This is in the commer-
cial, downtown area on St. George
Island, This request presented
problems for the Board.
Leslie Fry Allen a partner of
Lafayette Properties Partnership
along with Stan Sypert (builder)
spoke in defense of the develop-
ment. It was explained that all
aspects of the proposed construc-
tion had already been approved.
The sole decision for the Board
would be regarding the commer-
cial development now proposed for
the base level, The Board was con-
cerned with the fill requirements
and the possible flooding aspects
of the development. Mr. Putnal
was in favor of the new commer-
cial aspect at the base floor level,
Mr. Crofton was concerned with
the fill and the possibility of flood-
ing in that area. The property is
on the corner of Pine Street and
1st Street. The lots were originally
seven skinny-mini lots. Ms. Allen
explained the effort and trouble
that she and her associates have
gone through in an attempt to
please the community and not
construct more skinny-minis and
at the same time provide more
commercial usage in the area.
The Board expressed appreciation
for the efforts' of Ms.Allen and her
group but still expressed their res-
ervation with regards to the fill,
elevation and possible flooding of
tlhe proposed development. Con-
sequently the issue was tabled for
further consideration and re-
scheduled for discussion at the
next County Commission meet-
ing. This lot is west of Survivors,
Ironically, it is the commercial
aspect of this development that
makes the fill necessary and pre-
sents the obstacle to those on the
Board who were objecting., In any
case, the decision was tabled un-
til the next meeting.

struct a building five feet into both

San Marcos from Page 1
Fort St. Marks was in keeping with the harsh conditions. The former
is probably the case. The analysis of the skeletal material furnishes
insights into the general health and stature of the frontier soldier, lie
was of medium height, often limped, and suffered from severe dental
problems. In short, he fit in well with the description of the St. Marks
area "a continual course'of fatigue, sickness, and privation."
As a result of various military and political maneuvers, the United
States occupied Fort St. Marks on two different occasions. The first
occupation, from May 1818 through February 1819, was a conse-
quence of Andrew Jackson's invasion of Spanish Florida. The second
occupation, from July 1821 until abandonment in May 1825, came
after Spain ceded Florida to the United States. The abandonment fol-
lowed the decision that the post was no longer militarily important.
Presently on file in the Division of Archives History and Records Man-
agement, Florida Department of State, is a manuscript consisting of
abstracts of correspondence between key personnel from May 1818,
reporting the garrisoning of the fort, until December 1826 when an
Army captain reports that "Fort St. Marks since it was turned over to
the government of Florida in May 1825, has suffered almost a total
destruction of its barracks, officer's quarters and other buildings..."
The United States occupation of Spanish Florida and the subsequent
hostility known as the Seminole War began on March 10, 1818. On
that date Andrew Jackson departed from Fort Scott. situated at the
juncture of the Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers, crossed the Flint River
and evolved into Florida with a force of 3,500. Of this contingent 2.000

were Creek warriors, the majority;o1 which were Cowetas, 500 regu-
lars and 1,000 militia. Jackson's first stop on March 13, 1818, was at
Alum Bluff where supplies were drawn from a provision boat. From
Alum Bluff the force proceeded to Prospect Bluff and the site of the
Negro Fort destroyed by Americans on July 27, 1816. Jackson or-
dered a fort to be constructed on the bluff overlooking the Apalachicola
River which was later to be called Fort Gadsden after its designer, Lt.
James Gadsden. Leaving a strong force at Prospect Bluff on March
26, 1818, Jackson marched east to Mikasuki where the village com-
plexes were burned.

Early in 1818, Jackson's force encamped one mile from the Spanish
garrison at St. Marks. Jackson's adjutant, Lt. Gadsden, was sent with
a message to the Spanish commandant, Don Francisco Casoy Liengo.
explaining hostile Indians were taking refuge within his command
and that in order to prevent the Indians from using his command as
a base of operations against the Americans, U.S. forces should garri-
son the installation pending a cessation of hostilities. Casoy Luengo
refused Jackson's demand for surrender. The following morning Jack-
son ordered Major Twiggs and a force of men to seize the garrison.
Alexander Arbuthnot, a Scots trader and advisor to the Seminoles,
was found to be a Spanish guest at the fort and was placed under
arrest.
Jackson then continued his campaign and marched on Bowleg's town
on the Suwannee River. The town was largely deserted when Jackson
arrived. Before returning to St. Marks he captured Robert Ambrister,
an ex-officer of the British marines whom Jackson suspected of sup-
plying and advising the Indians. Ambrister was returned to Fort St.
Marks, where he and Arbuthnot were tried on April 28 by a special
court of 14 officers. The charges consisted essentially of assisting the
Indians in their war with the United States and spying. Arbuthnot
was sentenced to be hanged. Ambrister was initially sentenced to be
shot, hut a reconsideration was requested by a member of the court,
and the sentence was changed to 50 stripes on his bare back and 12
months of hard labor. Jackson denied the reconsideration and or-


Spanish Bombproof
These stone foundations are the remains of the Spanish
bombproof. It was built to protect men and supplies dur-
ing an attack. The bombproof was built of limestone
blocks quarried from ra site located about a mile down
river. It took some 35 years to complete, from the 1750's
to after 1785. It had four rooms with arched ceilings and
strong doors. The roof was used as a firing position for
soldiers who defended the fort's north wall. When the
Marine Hospital and the St. Marks Lighthouse were built
around'-1857, stones from the old bombproof were, used.

Sdered both men to he executed on the morning of April'29, 1818. The
sentence was carried out by BrevetMajoqr A.C.W. Fanning of the artil-
lery who became the commanding officer of Fort St. Marks for the
first U.S. occupation.
Because of continuous Indian raids in'Georgia from Spanish L Florida,
Gen. Andrew Jackson invaded the territory in 1818 and took San
Marcos. Two captured British citizens, Rboert Aribrister and Alexander
Arhuthnot, were tried and found guilty of inciting Indian raids. Jack-
son executed both of the men, creating a diplomatic crisis between
the United States and Great Britain. Jackson withdrew from San
Marcos, leaving the fort once again in Spanish hands.
In 1821, Florida was ceded to the United States, and U.S. troops were
sent to occupy the fort, Three years later, the fort was abandoned and
turned over to the Territory of Florida. By 1839, the fort was returned
to the U.S. Government and co-nstructlion of a Federal marine hospital

The final confrontation at San Macros occurred in 1861 when the
Confederates took the fort, renaming it Fort Ward. A Union squadron
blockaded the mouth of the St. Marks River from 1661 until 1865.
The Battle of Natural Bridge eventually stopped the Union force that
apparently intended to advance onto the Confederate fort from the
rear.
There is a well-marked trail complete with an informative brochure
that takes visitors on a journey through the historic fortification ru-
ins. The visitor center provides exhibits and artifacts covering the
area's history and it is built on the foundation of the old marine hos-
pital. Every hour on the hour, a movie is shown at the visitor center
and is well worth seeing. The historic site and the visitor center are
open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Thursday through Monday and are
closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Picnic areas

The Original Fort Location
The original fort overlooks the strategic location where the St. Marks and Waku
meet on their way to the Gulf of Mexico. The St. Marks River is on the left, th
River is on the right. A path winds its way out of the fort area into some salt m
ing you to the point where you can see the meeting of these two rivers.


Bastion of San Fernando


This bastion projected from a corner of the fort. It was constructed of limestone from a
quarry downriver. From here, soldiers could fire at ships in the Wakulla River. They
could also defend areas under and along the north and west walls of the fort. In 1861,
Confederates filled the remains of the bastion with soil and emplaced a battery of can-
non. A small powder magazine located nearby served the battery.


The Florida Agency for Workforce
Innovation, released Florida's pre-
I'. liminary labor market statistics
S for December 2005 and revised
... T data for November 2005. Based on
the latest nationwide data, Florida
had the fastest job growth rate
and lowest unemployment rate of
the ten most populous states and
the highest number of new jobs
of all states in the nation. Florida's
unemployment rate continued to
be below the national average and
was the lowest since the current
data series began (January 1976).

Florida's Unemployment
(Seasonally Adjusted)
Florida's December 2005 unem-
ployment rate was 3.3 percent, the
lowest rate reported since the data
Series began in January 1976.
This rate was down 1.3 percent-
age points from 4.6 percent a year
ago.
Out of a civilian labor force of
8,766,000, there were 8,476,000
employed and 289,000 unem-
ployed Floridians.
Florida's December 2005 rate
was 1.6 percentage points lower
than the national rate of 4.9 per-
cent. Florida's unemployment rate
has been below the national av-
illa Rivers erage since mid-2002.

year. In comparison, nonagricul-
tural employment grew nationally
at a rate of 1.5 percent. Florida
S added 248,100 jobs since Decem-

SDuring November 2005, Florida
experienced the fastest over-the-
year rate of growth (+3.4 percent)
among the nation's ten most
populous states. Florida also had
the greatest over-the-year growth
in newjobs (+255,100jobs) among
all states.

able lot where there isn't one,' pro-
claimed Commissioner Putnal,
"They are building lots where they
shouldn't be building. They are
backfilling them. And the biggest
problem is there is no concern for
the neighbors who are going to get
totally wiped out because of this
wall when the next storm comes.
I'm having a problem with this,
Dan (Garlick) thinks this is all
right because he is in this busi-
ness-he makes money from
these things. But that ain't right.
I have had more people talking to
me on this one issue than every-
thing else that is going on in this
county-including the hospital."
"Here, here," said Ms. Sanders in
support. "Me too."
"You are going to have another
hundred people between East-
point and Carrabelle wanting to
build lots out in the water admon-
ished Mr. Putnal, Dan Garlick,
environmental engineer supervis-
ing the project then stated his case
that this was a state of the art
project. He pointed out that they
were not building any new lots;
that he had qualified engineers
who had designed the wall; and
that all plans had been submit-
ted to, and approved by, the Board
and by the planning department
for the county.
Ms. Sanders then asked if this
giant wall had been submitted to
the Board as it is now being con-
structed. Mr. Garlick said that the
wall was going to be nine feet four
inches high and, yes, it was sub-
mitted as such and approved'by
this Board, "This wall is being
built to stay," said Mr. Garlick. He
then went on to point out that
there were other similar walls that
had been constructed further
down the road towards Eastpoint.
He added that these walls did pro-
tect the property for which they
had been constructed and with
minimal damage to adjacent prop-
erties.
"If I had known that it (the wall)
was going to be eight foot or nine
foot, you would never have gotten
a vote from me," said Ms. Sand-
ers.
'"It is going to destroy his (Mr.
Hardy's) property. And he was
there first," said Mr. Putnal.
"We did everything on this, I don't
know what else we could have
done on that to make it right," of-
fered Mr. Garlick.
"I'm Keith Hardy. I'm here to rep-
resent my parents who are in the
room tonight. I have actually
looked at this project with due
diligence." Mr. Hardy then pto-
vided each commissioner with
copies of his research, Mr. Hardy's
first complaint was with the
County's method of announcing
these construction or develop-
ment events. He suggested using
the street address of the proper-
ties in question as opposed to the
legal description. "There is no
doubt that this is going to be a
very good wall, I have watched
them construct it, But it is going
to be five hundred and seventy-
five feet long. We are looking at a
nine foot difference between the
back-fill of this wall and our land.
I can tell you one thing, the water
is not going to flow up from that
wall. It is going to flow down from
it. Sea walls cause erosion on ad-
jacent beaches. There are no ex-
ceptions. Four states no longer
allow sea walls-Maine, Rhode Is-
land, North Carolina and South
Carolina, Florida spends 400 mil-
lion per year maintaining its sea
walls. Once you put up a sea wall,
you have to put up another sea
wall next to it in order to main-
tain that property. There is no
option in the scientific literature -
period. We were not notified of this
wall that is going up. This type
wall on a sloping beach is unprec-
edented." Mr. Hardy went on to
point out that the science on this
subject was against this type con-
struction. He also suggested that
now after the County has been in-
formed on this matter, it may. in
fact, be held liable. In other words,
in the future the County may be
forced to buy properties that end
up destroyed via erosion due to
county approved adjacent con-
struction, "My recommendation is
that the permit on the continua-
tion of this wall not be granted and
that the existing wall should be
removed or decreased in height to
match the four foot wall at 2142.
The second option is that you con-
tinue that wall and that either the
county or the property owner in
question pay for the continuation


to protect our property. We do not
have the two hundred thousand
dollars to pay to protect this prop-
erty. The third option is that less
harmful methods be used for ero-
sion management. This new prop-
erty is going to be a very nice prop-
erty. It is just that we will not be
here to enjoy it after this wall has
been constructed." Mr. Hardy
went on to explain that his family
had been living at this site for
twenty-eight years and this prob-
lem was crucial to them.
Mr. Putnal was of the opinion that
there were many lots along the
shoreline that-had been com-
pletely washed away by erosion
and that many of them were no
longer buildable lots, He sug-
gested that these lots should not
be reclaimed. Jimmy Mosconis
was of the opinion that these lots
were owned by people who were
justifiably making an attempt to
save their particular investment
and that these properties were not
only valuable to the individuals
involved but.to the County be-
cause of their tax revenues.
Mr. Roger Bybee (engineer and
consultant) stepped forward and
pointed out that at a recent meet-
ing in Eastpoint the DOT had
made a presentation of their pro-
posed plan to save the shoreline
between Carrabelle and East-
point. His point was that there
were new technologies available-
excluding seawalls and the like.
There is no doubt that valuable
properties are disappearing along
the coastline of Franklin County
each year. The question is; What
should be the County's policy--
and if the county establishes a
policy that turns out to be detri-
mental to some individuals can
the County be sued or held, in
some way, responsible for dam-
ages? Also, in a Country where the
right to private property is prized
and considered a foundation
stone of the society's values, can
the Community simply tell an in-
dividual property owner that his
property is no longer buildable
and that he has no right to reclaim
it; or build a home "out in the
water"-as Mr. Putnal put it.
Roger Akins manager of the
project then spoke to the issue,
"We're simply putting the land
back on (these lots in question -
to the point) that it was at before
Hurricane Dennis."
"To me 'building something back'
is creating something that is not
there," interjected Mr. Putnal.
"What I want to know is what are
we going to do to help the
Hardy's?" asked Commissioner
Sanders.
"That is a fair question," said Mr.
Akins, "I'm a good neighbor. There
is no way that I am going to take
advantage of the Hardy's in this
situation, There is no point in any
of this land or the seawall that is
going to increase the velocity for
erosive ability on their land, But,
in the event that there is any, I
will move quickly with the Hardy's
permission to put the concrete
rubble and additional erosion con-
trol measures in there to protect
their land. And 1 have told the
Hardy's that I will be glad to do
that."
"Are you going to put that in writ-
ing?" asked Ms. Sanders.
'They don't need that," affirmed
Mr. Akins. "When I say that I am
going to do it, they can count on
it." Surprisingly at this point, no
one in the audience laughed. "If
you all take a look at this wall
(draft of wall was provided)-you
are going to be amazed at how it's
protective of the Hardy's property.
I'm not going to do anything at the
expense of the Hardy's property, I
will tell you that."
"I had a wise old judge say one
time," said Attorney Shuler, "You
fellows have to work this out your-
selves because if we have to make
a decision somebody is going to
get hurt, These folks should go
and work this out among them-
selves."
"Make that recommendation right
now," Ms. Sanders offered enthu-
siastically.
"That is my recommendation,"
Attorney Shuler advised authori-
tatively. And on that recommen-
dation the discussion was
closed-until the next Planning
and Zoning Advisory Board meet-
ing-in any case.
