Carrabelle City Council Meeting May 4,2006

Shrimp Boats Will Demolish New Docks

Unless they're cast concrete, says Lysett


Cemetery Tour Highlight

Of The Tour Of Homes
Dolores Roux conducted an informative tour of the Chestnut
Street Cemetery as part of the Apalachicola Historic Tour of
Homes on Saturday, May 6, 2006. At least 100 visitors negoti-
ated grave stones and bogs, as Ms. Roux led the visitors
throughout the cemetery, recalling personal recollections of
the graveyard residents, and the notables of Apalachicola his-
tory.
At least 12 historic homes were on the tour along with other
historic houses such as the Orman House, now a state park,
and the Raney House Museum.


By Skip Frink
Most of the air was let out of
the tires of the new design
presented by ECT for a
Carrabelle City Marina, tenta-
tively to be named the
Carrabelle Wharf. Jim Lysett,
local shrimp boat owner, had
a list of issues with the con-
cept that were far-reaching
enough to require a "start-
-over". The criticism unfortu-
Snately comes at the worst
time: the grant application
., ..has to.go into top.gear. to meet
the May 19 deadline lor co:m-
pleted design. The final grant
deadline is in July.
Carrabelle owns about 1200'
on the river, essentially from
the first condos on Marine
Street going downriver to the
old ferry dock. The location is
ideal for the function of boat-
ing services, and there are
plans for vehicle parking ser-
.vices. The existing pavilion
building is ideally sited to
overlook the. dozens of slips.


The overall concept is a great
one: the public can come
down to the Wharf to boat or
just spectate all the water-
front activity, both pleasure
and commercial.
But Mr. Lysett maintains that
the tonnage of the large boats
'will "take out a couple of those
nice new slips" with the least
miscalculation by the captain.
The dock design apparently
makes use of traditional ma-
terials: treated pine poles
driven into the bottom as
-piers;.ua:td e ted' .ltmber
framing and decking. He de-
sires poured concrete to make
docks for the commercial
boats, and also a concrete
road or ramp so that heavy
trucks can drive right up to
the boats for offloading and
fueling.
Which brought up another
challenge: the mix of commer-
cial work with pleasure boat-
ers. He cited liability for the
city as a major problem with


the current design. The head-
scratching and thoughtful
looks from commission mem-
bers and the audience said
volumes about what may not
have been planned: what per-
centage of the space should
be devoted to large shrimp
boats, how much for smaller
grouper-type boats, mullet/
oyster boats, etc. which are all
"commercial"-use boats?
Then, are charter fishing ven-
tures commercial or not? The
design i representatives
seemed willing to try to do a
redesign under the time pres-
sures. Fortunately, their fee is
paid by a grant from our new
TDC tax dollars, but unfortu-
nately Carrabelle may have to
go back for more.
Much time was devoted to
another discussion of city
water and sewer. The same
questions remain:
1. Do we continue to run these
services outside the city?


2. If so, do we require annex-
ation and the payment of city
taxes?
3. Do we require citizens in-
side.the city to hook up? Be-
fore we go outside? Who pays?
4. Do we charge more for tap
fees outside the city, since the
distance is greater?
Another workshop will be
scheduled for June.
The city approved $500 for
fireworks for the 4th of July
celebration. That -s inrcon-
trast to past. displays which
are said.to have cost as much
as $12,000. Other contribu-
tions may be received for the
event, which is supervised by
the Fire Department.
It was discussed and passed
that the city would remove the
"planters" that jut out into
Marine Street. This will in-
crease parking space, and the
greenspace lost will appar-
ently be transferred into the
sidewalks.


2006-2007 Legislative

Budget For Senate

District 6 Is A "Stellar

Year"
The 2006 Legislative Session wrapped up on Friday May 5,
2006. A $70.3 billion state budget passed late Friday by both
the Senate and the House. State Senator Alfred Lawson, rep-
resents Senate District 6 which includes eleven counties. It is
reported that Lawson will be taking home to his constituents
the third highest allocation in district projects funded in the
2006/2007 budget. "My constituents have every reason to cel-
ebrate this year's state budget", said the Senator.
Effective October 1, 2006, there will be a 3% pay increase for
all state employees with no increase in health insurance pre-
miums. State Correctional Officers will receive a compression
S pay increase of 5% for those at 5 years of service and a 6% pay
increase for those at 10 years or above on October 1, 2006.
State Fire Fighters will also receive a special pay increase ad-
justment of 8%. "As the Senator representing the'greatest
number of state employees in this state, I am very pleased
with the legislature's decision to fund these critical pay ad-
justments. These pay increases will help the State of Florida
to retain and recruit experienced personnel," Lawson added.
The 2006-07 budget provided for a much needed boost in public
school state and local allocations for K-12. Franklin County
Schools will receive an additional $1,056,258 a 11.77% in-
crease in new dollars for the forthcoming school year.
The Florida Legislature passed legislation, (HB 293/SB1612)
co-sponsored by Senator Lawson, creates a program to assist
fiscally constrained counties. A fiscally constrained county is
a county entirely located in a Rural Area of Critical Economic
Concern or a county in which the value of I mill generates S5
million or less in property tax. Under this new law, Franklin
County will receive $162.915 in new revenue dollars.
In addition, Senate Bill 428, sponsored by Lawson increases
per diem for state employees passed the Florida Senate and
House. "State workers have subsidized the cost of performing
theirjobs out of their own pockets for too long." A provision in
the bill will increase the mileage reimbursement rate from .29
cents to 44.5 cents per mile. "Considering the huge jump in
gas prices, passage of this bill could not have been more timely,"
said Lawson.
Franklin County did very well this year in the state budget.
The Legislature funded the following crucial projects:
Franklin County 2006 Legislative Appropriations
Apalachicola River and Bay Surface Water Improvement and Man-
agement (SWIM) Program ............................................... $4,000,000

Prudential

Realty Owners

to Operate
Public Access

Channel

The Franklin County Commission
approved an agreement between For-
gotten Coast TV, a Florida Corpora-
tion and the Board of County Com-
HELEN SPOHRER missioners thereby permitting For-
gotten Coast TV to operate exclusively the public access chan-
nel in Franklin County.
Forgotten Coast TV is operated and owned by Helen Spohrer
with John B. Spohrer, Jr. Creative Director and Executive Pro-
ducer, Royce Rolstad, III, Production Director and Barry
Townsend Production Assistant and Videographer. Forgotten
Coast TV has agreed to provide up to 48 hours of TV program-
ming per year "specified by the County free of charge." Pro-
gramming may include, but shall not be limited to environ-
mental programming, educational programming, government
affairs programming and programming featuring the busi-
nesses and resources of Franklin County, Florida. The agree-
ment is for three years, and renewable.
In a business plan dated June 2005, the mission statement of
Forgotten Coast TV is to "create a channel of local and envi-
ronmental programming." The business plan was divided into
three parts: (1) Phase One 2005: St. George Cable, Inc., (2)
Phase Two, 2006 Franklin County Public Access Channel and
(3) Phase Three 2008 Regional Leased Access Channel. In Phase
One, Prudential Resort Realty would pay for all expenses ex-
cept for those provided by John and Helen Spohrer in exchange
for the production and airing of real estate programs. This
phase is designed to initially develop the product and learn
the business.
Prudential Resort Realty will receive a return on its invest-
ment through the increased exposure of its properties for sale.
Phase Two, Prudential Realty would continue to pay all ex-
penses in exchange for the production and airing of real es-
tate programs. When the public access channel is active, FCTV
may open sponsorships to local businesses in exchange for
underwriting credits for the sponsored program. This phase is
designed to showcase the environmental and local program-
ming, continue product development and provide Franklin
County with a much needed public service.
Phase Three is the final phase of the Business plan where the
financial return is expected and the business is projected to
earn a profit on its own. The leased access channel will be
operated as a regular television channel selling advertising.
All three channels will continue to air but each will have its
own programming with some of the same programs long term
plans include the possible sale of the leased access channel to
a cable network.


Oyster Surcharge Repealed

Franklin County

Delegation Has Passed
The Apalachicola Bay

Management And

Restoration Bill
State Senator Al Lawson (D-Tallahassee) and Representative
Will Kendrick (D-Carrabelle) successfully passed House Bill
1249 out of the Florida Senate today that will repeal the 50
cents per bag oyster surcharge on oysters harvested in the
Apalachicola Bay. The bill creates a dedicated funding source
that will replace the surcharge for a statewide oyster relay
program. On the effective date of the act, the Department of
Revenue is directed to cease all efforts to collect uncollected
surcharge revenues. The bill passed both the Florida Senate
and House unanimously.
"The passage of this bill is in direct result of the public hear-
ing and the people of Franklin County. Apalachicola has gone
through many changes since the 1989 implementation of the
oyster surcharge. The original program had lost its effective-
ness and needed to be rehabilitated. This new law will greatly
improve the program. I hope that by creating a dedicated fund-
ing source to replace the surcharge on oysters harvested in
the bay the oyster relay program will be even stronger," said
Lawson.

PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
FOR ANIMAL CONTROL
OFFICERS
Mr. Johnson: I am requesting
Board approval to permit Ani-
mal Control Officers to receive
training to become certified to
carry a Taser in the perfor-
mance of their duties. I am
bringing this request before
you out of concern for the
personal safety of Franklin
County Animal Control Offic-
etr : .. '- ............


While responding to routine
complaints, on at least four
occasions, an aggressive dog
has attacked and bitten an
Officer. With proper training
and policy implementation
governing the Taser use, the
device would offer a measure
of protection when the offic-
ers encounter a bad dog. Ac-
cording to the Florida Animal
Control Association, there are
no laws prohibiting Officers
from carrying the device, the
decision' is made on the local
level.
I request a motion permitting
,Animal Control Officers to re-
;ceive training and certification
to carry a Taser and Board
,approved policy written gov-
:erning the device use.
-This request was approved by
,the Board.
SUMMER RECREATION
PROGRAM
'Mr. Johnson: I'm requesting
:Board approval for the adop-
Ition of the attached summer
recreation program plan. With
'your approval, you will be
contributing $10,000, from
Pthe Parks & Recreation Youth

-budget directly to the Boys &
'Girls Club for implementation
*and operation of this program.
-The design of this program is
:to curb the destructive use of
-alcohol and drugs among
:Franklin County School aged
'youth. Recent studies have
-suggested that alcohol and
.drug use among our school
:aged youth is above State gv-
.erage.
Franklin County Parks & Rec-
reation Department, along
with the Franklin County
Boys & Girls Club, the City of
Apalachicola and the City of
Carrabelle has partnered to-
gether to provide instructional
and supervised activities for
our school aged youth during
the summer. The Program will
run from June 5, 2006 to July
28. 2006.
Local teachers, coaches, stu-
dents and members or the
general public will be offered
temporary part-time summer
jobs to conduct sports and
enrichment camps (soccer,
girl's softball, boy's baseball,
basketball, dance, arts and
crafts). The daily operation of
the program will be conducted
by the Franklin County Boys
& Girls Club with oversight
from the County's Parks &
Recreation Department. The
program will be conducted at
the Boys & Girls Club already
established sites (Chapman
Elementary Gym in
Apalachicola, Brown


Elementary Gym in Eastpoint
and Carrabelle High School
Gym). The program will be
funded by local government
contributions with funds
given directly to the Boys &
Girls Club for implementation
and operation.

STATEWIDE RADIO SYS-
TEM
The Solid Waste Department
has received its new statewide
radio system. The new radios
will allow the department fo
communicate with the Sher-
iff Department and other
agencies directly should tele-
phone communication's cease
during an emergency. We are
still working on adding the
G.P.S. feature to this system.
Noteworthy: The Franklin
County Solid Waste Depart-
ment is the first Public Works
agency in the State to utilize
this system.

Seth Blitch-ANEER-
Research Reserve
Mr. Mitch: I'm here to keep the
Board abreast of what is hap-
pening at the Research Re-
serve. We have just wrapped
up the second year of the Life
Program environment pro-
gram for all seventh graders
in the County. We have had
250 students come through
the program. Franklin County
was the pilot site for this pro-
gram. Students go to, four
sites during the year, around
the County and have some
first hand field experience in
dealing with different kinds of
habitats. It (the Program) has
been a real success and has
grown statewide.


We have been awarded the
grant a little over a year
ago-of $140,000 Federal
money for NOAA's Special
Services Center. That grant is
to establish geographic infor-
mation systems for computer
layers for mapping that will
look at things like the loca-
tions of docks throughout the
County to track some of the
permitting; look at areas of
storm serge and floodplains.
This is a:two year grant and
we are in the middle of the
first year. Next year the
County will get a large Plot-
ter, a Server, a Computer and
A.sg.ftWre hIt will heJp, u,d,9
this mapping as well as a re-
ally nice GPS unit that you
can take into the field and
mark locations that will then
feed into this computer sys-
tem as well as train (people).
This is about $35,000 worth
of equipment.
Every two or three years our
permits are reviewed. We are
going through this process at
this moment. There is a pub-
lic meeting tomorrow night
(May 3) at the Community
Center where anybody can
offer their comments.
Finally, to revisit the hunting
issue for a second, I know that
our office in Tallahassee has
received a request from the
County to allow hunting.
When I know more I will be
back to let you know how
thing are progressing.
Right now we are removing
the lighthouse it is about
85% removed. The St. George
Light House Ass. they were
awarded about $125,000
(from the state) to remove that
(the light house). When that
is all done (light house re-
moved) it will be reconstituted
somewhere. To my knowledge
we have no idea where it will
be relocated or the cost to put
it back together. It will be a
large undertaking.

Deer Partners-The
Hardys, and "The Wall"
The Hardys and Deer Partners
met two weeks ago at the re-
quest of the Board and came
to a satisfactory compromise.
Though the situation was re-
solved there was still consid-
erable discussion and debate
with regards to this issue. The
Board was not only concerned
with the issue at hand but
with future precedents and
potential problems. The advi-
sory Board of Adjustment had
voted to deny the compro-
mised request.


"Was this denial on the part
of the Advisory Board with
regards to the proposed exten-
sion of this wall?" asked Mr.
Mosconis.
Barbara Sanders: To answer
your question ... yes. To up-
date you, we are here today
for a variance. What is con-
cerned here ... is there a hard-
ship that is not of the making
of the owner. We have deter-
mined that yes there is a hard-
ship caused by the natural
forces of the coastal erosion.
Your staff worked diligently on
this-we had two very long
meetings where we hashed
out all the issues 6n the prob-
lems. The result of that co-.
operative meeting directed by
this Board is that the neigh-
bors, the Hardys and Deer
Partners LLD, agreed to work
together to try to get a retain-
ing wall for both the parties.
The neighbor to the east ap-
peared and voiced that he had
no objection to Mr. Hardy's
wall.
Ms. Sanders then asked the
Board to grant the variance
and approve the requests in-
volving the extension .of the
wall.
Keith Hardy then made a re-
quest on the part of his fam-
ily that the compromise pro-
posal and the associated vari-
ances submitted by Ms..Sand-
ers, Deer Partners, and the
Hardys be accepted and ap-
proved.
There was then a brief de-
scription of the technicalities
of the wall's construction and
how the variances should be
received-one or two re-
quests.
Richard Harper, a sitting
member of the Board of Ad-
justment, then came forward
to explain the reasons for the
Boards' denial of the requests.
"The height of this wall fell
through the cracks. Conse-
quently (originally) we didn't
carry the word to you. So I'll
take my part of the blame on
this nine foot wall. The Board
of Adjustment's view is that
this is a height issue. If this
is what you want Franklin
County to look like (in the fu-
ture), you (vote) to extend the
wall that is there. This wall is,
too tall to be signed off on as
a protective measure ... it is a
developmental measure. The
BOA recommendation is to
not use this wall as a bench-
mark for anything ... I'm not
sure that this (type wall) is
what the citizens of Franklin
County want. This type of con-
struction makes it almost im-
possible to traverse the shore-
line. If you are a property
owner in this area and you
,want to go-for a walk up and
down this shoreline-you
can't because they built the
wall at' the mean high water
line and from that point they
have rip wrap that runs out
into the water. This is just the
first of what you are going to
find (if you approve this re-
quest)."
Mr. Hardy then come forward
to state that he agreed with
Mr. Harper and his reasoning
for the BOA's denial but, he
went on to explain, this was
no longer the question. The
wall had already been ap-
proved by the County and now
he had no choice but to join
in and construct a wall of his
own. He had asked the
County not to approve the wall
in the first place but the
County did not respond in
time. So, unfortunately, he
was now left in the awkward
position of requesting to do
something that he never
wanted to do in the first place.
The engineering and con-
struction of the wall was then
defended and debated.
Dan Townsmiere came for-
ward to recommend that, if
not in this particular project
but with regards to .future
projects, an off-shore break-
water be recommended in
place of seawall or revet-
ments.
Paul Regalmier spoke against
the wall. His point was that it
was not aesthetically pleasing
and it limited access to the
water. He suggested that
there are other more environ-
mentally sound ways to ac-
complish the same purpose.
He admonished that the ap-"
proval of this wall will lead to
similar, requests all around
the Bay in-the future.
Mr. Crofton expressed the fear
that a continuous seawall
would now be made manda-
tory for the remainder of the


properties in that area. Mr.
Pierce informed Mr. Crofton
that it was not a fear but al-
ready, pretty much of, a real-
ity.
"I think because we got them
(the Hardys) into this mess
that they didn't ask for, we
should approve these re-
quests," suggested Mr.
Putnal.
A motion was then made to
approve the requests. The vote
was four to one with Mr.
Crofton voting to deny.
Mr. Putnal then made a mo-
tion that an ordinance be in-
corporated requiring that no
seawall exceeding five feet be
allowed.
Mr. Crofton argued that mak-
ing such a rule would ensure
that all future walls would be
a minimum of five feet. Mr.
Crofton voted against the sug-
gested five foot rule and ad-
vised that future decisions
should be made by the Board.
And the Board should make
its judgments on the indi-
vidual circumstances in-
volved.
Several audience observers
suggested that this problem
be researched. A workshop to
discuss this issue was the fi-
nal decision. The date of such
a workshop is to be an-
nounced.

Michael Shuler Report-
County Attorney
The health care and the inter-
local agreement information
(sales tax) were tabled. There
was no one from the Health
care council in attendance.
The Dog Island road set back
requirement was said to be of
legitimate Board concern.
A scholarship dinner in
,Carrabelle necessitated the
changing of the May 16
County Commission meet-
ing from an evening meet-
ing to a daytime meeting.
The scheduled Tuesday 6
p.m. May 16th meeting will
consequently begin at 9 a.m.
A motion to approve a pre-
scription drug contract by/for
the county was approved.
The Turner law suit had been
dismissed.
The ARPC (The Apalachicola
Regional Planning Council)
revolving loan was discussed.
'"he question was who was
going to enforce the collection
of these loans, the ARPC or
Franklin County. The ARPC
said that it had terminated its
contract with the County. You
have few options. The Courty
can sue the ARPC. I would be
.hesitant to recommend that
you sue the ARPC."
Mr. Mosconis warned that the
Board should be made aware
that there could be the possi-
bility that the Federal Govern-
ment could sue the State (and
possibly the County) for the
recovery of these vanished
funds-funds that were pri-
marily loaned to seafood Deal-
ers in the past. Many of these
dealers are now bankrupt or
out of business. Mr. Mosconis
cited the case which involved
moneys that had to be paid
back by the State with regards
to the rejected aquaculture
program that was attempted
here in past years.' The
County rejected the program
on, the grounds that it did not
approve of leasing in the Bay.
A motion was then suggested
by Mr. Mosconis to put the
ARPC on notice that it is and
remains their obligation to
collect the delinquent funds.
The motion was approved.

Ken Haddad, Executive Direc-
tor of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission has reported that the
adult bald eagles population
has improved, with less a
threat of extinction.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
scientists are gearing up to
hammer out new manage-
ment plans for four animals
on the state's imperiled spe-
cies list. They will base the
plans on their conclusions
about the needs of each ani-
mal.


A staff recommendation to
remove bald eagles from the
list, which top scientific ex-
perts from outside the FWC
have reviewed, reflects suc-
cessful efforts to rescue the
species from the threat of ex-
tinction. FWC Commissioners
will consider the change dur-
ing their June 7-8 meeting in
West Palm Beach.
Bald eagles have established
1,133 known nesting territo-
ries in Florida, and each ter-
ritory has one or two adult
eagles. In 1973, Florida had
only 88 known bald eagle nest
territories.
"What we're doing for eagles
is working," Executive Direc-
tor Ken Haddad said. "That's
good news. Our goal is for all
imperiled species to recover to
the point where we can re-
move them from the list."
Manatees, currently listed as
an endangered species, may
be reclassified as threatened
if Commissioners approve the
staff recommendation. Mana-
tees have recovered to the
point where they are no longer
in immediate danger of extinc-
tion, although they still re-
quire careful management.
"Anytime a species moves to-
ward a new classification,
FWC scientists must evaluate
current management efforts
and tailor them for recovery
of that specific species, before
the new classification can
take effect," Haddad said.
"That process takes 12-24
months and includes partici-
pation by the public."
Two other species that haven't
fared as well are gopher tor-
toises and Panama City cray-
fish. FWC Commissioners will
consider the staff recommen-
dation to create new manage-
ment plans and continue the
process of reclassifying both
animals from species of spe-
cial concern to threatened.
Gulf of Mexico Fishery Man-
agement Council approves
Reef Fish Amendment 26 es-
tablishing an Individual Fish-
ing Quota (IFQ) for the red
snapper fishery.
Tampa, Florida-May 1,
2006--After spending nearly
six years in development, Reef
Fish Amendment 26, which
establishes an IFQ system for
commercial red snapper, re-
ceived resounding approval
from eligible voters. While the
Department of Commerce will
have the final say in whether.
or not the measure is ap-
proved, 87% (weighted) of
those who returned a ballot
voted in favor of the IFQ
amendment.
"We're tired of wasting fish,"
said David Krebs of Destih,;
Florida, adding that "VMS and
a quota system is the only way
we're going to save the fish-
ery."
At its March meeting, the Gulf
Council voted to forward Reef
Fish Amendment 26 to the
Secretary of Commerce for
review and consideration.
Under the red snapper IFQ
program, also known as
Amendment 26 to the Reef
Fish Fishery Management
Plan, individual fishing-quo-
tas will be assigned to current
permit holders based on his-
torical landings. Class 1 reef
fish permit holders will choose
ten consecutive years between
1990 and 2004, and Class 2
reef fish permit holders will
choose five consecutive years
between 1998 and 2004. For
those fishermen who hold a
Class I historical captain's li-
cense, individual quotas will
be assigned based on a seven-
year average of historical
landings.
For years, the red snapper
fishery has been marked by

overcapitalization. The cur-
rent limited entry and closed
season management system
has encouraged fishermen to
engage in derby-type fishing
where participants race to
harvest as many fish as pos-
sible before the quota is taken
and the fishery closed.
"We stepped up, identified
problems, and went forward
with ways to address those
problems," said Donald Wa-
ters, a commercial fisherman
from Pensacola, Florida who
also serves on the Red Snap-
per IFQ Advisory Panel.
It is hoped that working un-
der an IFQ system, product
quality will increase by im-
proving fishing and handling
methods. A reduction in
bycatch is also anticipated
because fishermen will be al-
lowed greater flexibility in op-
erations.
"IFQs often create an incen-
tive for fishermen to conserve
the resource by giving them a
long-term.interest in the
health and productivity of the
fishery," said Wayne Swingle,
Executive Director of the Gulf
of Mexico Fishery Manage-
ment Council..
"We won't be racing out there
for ten days trying to wipe out
everything that's out there,"
said Krebs. If approved by the
Secretary of Commerce, the
IFQ program will become ef-
fective in 2007.

Preble-Rish Engineers is in-
terested in seeking additional
DOT funds for their clients.
One program that Franklin
County is not eligible for on
its own, but would be if it
joined with another county is
the TRIP program-Transpor-
tation Regional Incentive Pro-
gram. TRIP projects need to
meet a regional issue, and
thus two counties have to
work together. DOT funds up
to 50% of TRIP projects.
Preble-Rish believes that
Franklin and Liberty counties
could benefit by working to-
gether. The Board received a
Fedex package from The
Ferguson Group, from Wash-
ington, DC, offering to be the
county's lobbying firm for fed-
eral grants. Their basic rate
is a $10,000 a month retainer,
with billing to start after 33
hours of work is done each
month. The hourly rate is
$350, plus expenses. The
Board rejected the proposal.
Board action to appoint new
members and re-appoint cer-
tain members to the Gulf
Coast Workforce Development
Board. New members are: Ms.
Sheila Hauser, private sector
member and President of
Carrabelle Chamber; Ms.
Mary Claire Lovell, retired
teacher from Carrabelle; Ms.
Suzanne Zimmerman, Execu-
tive Director Carrabelle
Chamber. Re-appointments
are: Ms. Betty Croom, and Mr.
Cliff Butler.


Board action on two items left
from last meeting.
A. Board action on the request
from Jeanne McMillan,
Wildwomen Inc. for a variance
to build a shed 40 feet into the
Critical Habitat Zone. The ini-
tial solution included a
stormwater pond built on
county property that would
serve Ms. McMillan's project
as well as provide some treat-
ment of stormwater from 3rd
Street. I have asked Ms.
McMillan to design and move
the stormwater pond to her
property, so that public prop-
erty is not involved in any way.
She has done that. Board ac-
tion on the request for a vari-
ance.
B. Board action on request for
Christian Amuroux on Dog
Island, Lot 16, to move an ex-
isting house within 3 feet of
the right-of-way. I have spo-
ken to the agent and the
house can be moved 2 feet
further away from the right-
way to make a setback of 5
feet. I have spoken to Mr.
Chris Teaf, Dog Island Con-
servation District. He was go-
ing to contact DEP to discuss
what requirements DEP is
imposing on structures mov-
ing away from the Gulf but I
have not heard back.
Both items, A and B, were
tabled.


AFC Battles Continue

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit on September
19, 2005, reversed two Alabama U.S. district court interlocu-
tory orders that blocked execution of an agreement between
the Army Corps of Engineers, and the state of Georgia and
others, which would have allowed the parties to take addi-
tional water from Georgia's Lake Lanier. The lake was formed
when the Chattahoochee River was dammed for the express
purpose of flood control, navigation and electric power gen-
eration. These flow-through uses which do not reduce the
amount of water available downstream from Lake Lanier. In
addition to these uses, and although not explicitly authorized
by Congress, the Corps has historically maintained that water
supply use is an incidental benefit flowing from the creation of
the reservoir. Thus, the Corps has allowed some of the lake
capacity to be used for municipal and industrial water supply.
Allocating water stored in the lake for water supply may di-
minish the quantity of water flowing downstream.
Georgia contends that additional water withdrawals are be-
coming increasingly necessary to accommodate the needs of
Atlanta residents as well as to support expected growth needs.
This is not good news for Florida and Alabama, both of which
rely on the flows from the Chattahoochee River from north-
eastern Georgia, eventually becoming the Alabama/Georgia
state line. The Chattahoochee continues flowing into northern
Florida meeting the Flint River and, at the confluence, be-
comes the Apalachicola River. Apalachicola Bay is at the end
of the tri-state, tri-river water system. The Bay is dependent
on sufficient flows from upstream to ensure the viability of the
estuary and bay, both'rich in nutrients, which are essential
elements in the food chain feeding the abundant fish and wild-
life in the region. Depleting the water stored in Lake Lanier
can have an adverse impact on the region.
The case pending before the U. S. District Court in Alabama
began as a civil action in June, 1996 when Alabama sought a
declaration that the Corps had failed to comply with the Na-
tioAal Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) before entering into
existing contracts for water withdrawal from Lake Lanier. Ala-
bama also asked for a preliminary and permanent injunction
requiring the Corps to comply with NEPA and to recall and
refrain from executing proposed contracts for withdrawals of
water from Lake Lanier and prohibiting any increase in with-
drawals of water until a requested Comprehensive Studies Plan
was completed. Florida was allowed to intervene as a plaintiff
and the Army Corps of Engineers and others were the primary
federal defendants. In September 1990, Alabama and the fed-
eral defendants, attempting to reach a settlement, submitted
a Joint Motion to Stay the case, and the court granted the
stay. They also agreed that, while the stay was in effect, the
Corps and the other federal defendants would not execute any
contracts or agreements having anything to do with the sub-
ject of the underlying lawsuit unless expressly agreed to by
Alabama and Florida. Although Georgia was not an original
party to the 1990 Alabama case, and only intervened in Sep-
tember 2003, it was aware of the terms of the 1990 Joint Mo-
tion to Stay and was served with a copy of the Joint Motion.
Through the decade and a half the lawsuit has been pending,
every federal judge in Alabama who has presided over the case
extended the stay. In 1997 the three states and Congress
passed the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin Com-
pact intended to govern the process for developing a solution
to water allocation issues in the ACF Basin. The ACF Compact
allowed existing withdrawals to continue to increase in re-
sponse to reasonable demand. The states negotiated and ex-
tended the Compact several times but were unable to reach
agreement on an allocation formula under the Compact. The
Compact terminated August 31, 2003.
Two other federal law suits involving related issues were also
filed; one in the District of Columbia and one in the Northern
District of Georgia. The D.C. case, filed in December, 2000 is a
lawsuit which involves similar water allocation issues and was
filed by the Southeastern Federal Power Customers who are
purchasers of hydropower generated at the dam which formed
Lake Lanier. Georgia and other local water supply providers
were interveners. The second is a lawsuit filed by Georgia
against the Corps in the Northern District of Georgia seeking
to compel the Corps to increase the amount of water Georgia
can withdraw from Lake Lanier for water supply. The Georgia
district court abated those proceedings pending resolution of
the Alabama case.
The case that caused Florida and Alabama to go back to the
Alabama district court was the D.C. case. In January, 2003
the Corps entered into a settlement agreement with the pri-
mary plaintiff as well as Georgia and other parties regarding
allocation of water in Lake Lanier in spite of the fact that they
did not comply with the provisions of the 1990 Joint Motion
and notify Florida and Alabama. In fact, the Corps, although
they were actively involved in the ongoing ACF Compact dis-
cussions and in constant contact with officials in Florida and
Alabama, never mentioned that they were simultaneously en-
gaging in settlement discussions in the D.C. case involving
some of the same issues. Florida and Alabama, upon finally
hearing about the D.C. case, unsuccessfully attempted to in-
tervene. The D.C. district court concluded that they were too
late to participate in settlement negotiations and proceeded to
approve the settlement agreement. After the Settlement Agree-
ment was filed in the D.C. court, Alabama revived the Ala-
bama district court case by filing a "Motion for Temporary
Restraining Order, Preliminary Injunction and to have said
Settlement Agreement entered into by the Corp and Others
Declared Null and Void." The Alabama district court, on Janu-
ary 31, 2003, granted the motion to the extent of issuing an
order directing the parties to take no actions that would vio-
late the 1990 Order granting the parties' Joint Motion to Stay
Proceedings and set a hearing to consider whatever remaining
relief was requested in the motion for the subsequent week.
The parties, however, stipulated several times to delay the
hearing while the states and the Corps unsuccessfully at-
tempted to negotiate settlements in not only the Alabama case
but also the D.C. case.

'4


During this time period there was a lot of confusion among
the various district courts-however, they ultimately resulted
in several orders being appealed. The 11th Circuit Court of
Appeals essentially found that the procedure followed by the
Alabama district court in granting an injunction was improper
because there was already an agreed injunction in place.
Rather, the Court of Appeals stated, the proper procedure was
for the parties to seek to have those violating the agreed in-
junction, namely the Corps, held in contempt. The matter is
now back before the district court for further proceedings
Florida and Alabama have joined forces against the Corps and
the State of Georgia and other defendants regarding the allo-
cation of water upstream. All defendants want more water from
Lake Lanier for municipal and industrial uses.
The Corp has been directed to initiate a comprehensive, sys-
tem-wide Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in order to
comply with the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA).
Apalachicola Riverkeeper, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and a
host of other interests including commercial fishers and
oystermen, have a right to participate in the EIS process. Their
input can help to insure sound conclusions in developing a
flow regime that, by its quantity, frequency andduration, pro-
tects the water quality, ecology and productivity downstream
including the Apalachicola River and Bay. The Riverkeeper will
continue to work with the Florida Stakeholders and the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection to develop an equi-
table process for completion of an ecological flow regime as-
sessment and the associated comprehensive Environmental
Impact Statement. Because the Alabama district court case is
essentially at a standstill, and the parties so far have been
unable to arrive at an equitable settlement, it seems ever more
likely that Florida will have no other option than to file an
action with the United States Supreme Court, which has origi-
nal jurisdiction to resolve disputes between and among states.

Mike Lake Of DasSee

Tells His Side Of The

Weems Hospital Situation

Michael C. Lake
May 1, 2006
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Franklin County Commission
and Citizens of Franklin County:
The time has finally come for me to tell the other side of the
story about George E. Weems Memorial Hospital. For many
months the Commission meetings, as well as the local news-
papers, have focused on the shortcomings of DasSee Commu-
nity Health Systems; made numerous erroneous statements
and assumptions, and slandered my name and reputation.
Let me begin to tell you some of my side of the story.
When I first walked into Weems Hospital on March 21, 1997,
there were NO supplies in the building. We had to purchase
pharmaceuticals, IV tubing and solution, reagents for the lab,
film for radiology, food for the kitchen, and. even pillows for
the beds. Employees of the hospital had not been paid in two
months. When DasSee left the hospital on December 31, 2005
there were not only supplies to run the hospital for weeks, but
equipment that DasSee had purchased valued at over
$100,000, and the employee's never missed a pay check in the
previous 8-1/2 plus years. With an annual payroll of over
2,000,000 annually, over the 8 1/2 plus years, we have put
over $20,000,000 back in the local community. Not once have
I seen anything in the Commission minutes or in print in the
newspapers that the entire hospital was in far superior condi-
tion than when I took it over.
Over the course of 8 years and. ,1 /2, months. J NEVER asked
the County for money. Nor did the county offer to help in any
way. The only thing that I ever asked for was for the County-to
uphold its obligation to the lease. We put over $800,000 in
upgrades to the air conditioning system, and additionally put
in $400,000 improvements for a new generator, sprinklers for
the entire hospital, put on a new roof, and so on. The County
would not even discuss reimbursing us or using that money
to offset rent. I understand that the Commission has finally
agreed that future management companies should not have
to pay taxes on a building that they are renting, but that con-
cession was not even offered to me. It has finally been ac-
knowledged that the building is in such a state of disrepair
that a new hospital is being contemplated. (A recommenda-
tion made in the May 25, 1990 Franklin Casino, Hospital Ad-
visory Committee Report.) Franklin County has done virtually
nothing in the previous 9 years to provide any renovations or
even support routine maintenance of the building. Over 3 years
ago money was supposedly allocated to replace exterior doors
and windows in the building, but although contractors mea-
sured ard provided an estimate to the county, nothing was
ever done.
Time and again I have presented figures to the Commission as
to the amount of indigent and uncompensated care DasSee
Community Health Systems, dba George E. Weems Hospital
provided to the citizens of Franklin County, yet no one seemed
to listen or care. One out of every three patients that walked
through the doors of Weems Hospital over the past 5 years did
not pay for services. That totaled $1.6 million per year, or over
$8 million in free care provided by DasSee Community Health
Systems just since February 2001. The Commission has fi-
nally seen the light and has now proposed a sales tax for indi-
gent care. The financial picture for Weems Hospital would have
been drastically different over the past 5 years if even half of


the free care was offset by tax revenue. Not once have I seen
anything in the Commission minutes or in print about the free
service tat DasSee provided to the citizens of Franklin County.
There has obviously been much discussion about a $2.7 mil-
lion GE loan. When I started DasSee I NEVER asked the county
for a bridge loan, nor any money to operate Weems Hospital.
GE was "a lender of last resort". What is never acknowledged
by GE is that of the original loan in the amount of $4,000,000,
$1,300,000 has actually been repaid. DasSee has not received
any money from GE in over 2 years, and continued to pay
down the balance. There were, and still are more than ad-
equate monies to cover the loan out there in unbilled claims.
The amount of alleged MICA fines reported by the local paper
has changed dramatically from week to week. When DasSee
renewed the license for Weems in June 2005, there was a bal-
ance of $10,000 owed to AHCA, which was paid at that time.
MICA imposes fines like $1000 per day for every day a report
is late. We were unaware of any money owed to MICA as of
December 31, 2005.
The newspaper has reported on several occasions that either
Ron Wolff or John Russell have commented that Mike Lake
has not cooperated or helped resolve one issue or another. It
needs to be noted that they have NEVER contacted me or my
partner and CFO, John Pickren. I told everyone involved from
the beginning that I was willing to help transition Weems Hos-
pital from DasSee to another company. If no one asks for my
help, I can't be expected to provide it and shouldn't be criti-
cized for not providing thatwhich I don't know anything about.
Cheryl Sanders was quoted as saying that the Commission
has "helped get Mike Lake out of a bog"; State Representative
Marti Coley was quoted as saying "So often we see these hos-
pitals sign on with a management company ... and then they
leave them in dire straits and they're gone". For over 8-1/2
years I did everything in my power to not only keep Weems
Hospital open, but to make it one of the best little rural hospi-
tals in the state. We never laid off an employee, never turned a
patient away, and struggled to keep the hospital supplied and
make payroll every two weeks despite a complete lack of sup-
port from the county and the majority of the medical commu-
nity. The commissioners have taken on the cause of Dana
Holton to keephis clinic open. Mr. Hdlton has not admitted a
patient to Weems Hospital in over 2 years. Of the 14 licensed
medical doctors listing Franklin County as their primary loca-
tions of practice, only 4 doctors have admitted patients to
Weems Hospital. The only way a hospital can survive is to
maintain a decent in-patient census. Over the past 5 years I
have written personal checks numerous times for supplies,
utilities, to pay for patients who needed a CT scan when ours
was not working, and even to assure physician coverage in
the Emergency Department. My wife and I have thousands of
dollars of unreimbursed expenses'that were paid on behalf of
Weems Hospital. I have provided loans to Weems employees
that were never paid back, as well as gifted employees with
money in their time of need. I deeply resent any and all infer-
ences that anyone got me "out of a bog" or that DasSee "scraped
the cream off the top", and such. For almost 9 years I have put
my heart and soul into these hospitals. If you were to look at
the Medical Community in Franklin County, over a nine year
period, I brought every physician except one into the county.
Each of those physicians was paid by the hospital for at least
one year and in some cases two years while they established
their practices.
It appears to me that the cards were stacked against the suc-
cess of myself and DasSee Community Health Systems. When
AHCA surveyors tell your employees that AHCA won't stop
until it puts Mike Lake out of business, you know that it's
personal. Did I make some mistakes over the past 8-1/2 years?
You bet I did. But I have always cared about Weems Hospital
and the employees. Just remember, I could have let the doors
close, sold all of the equipment and inventory, and sealed the
fate of a Critical Access Hospital in Franklin County. But that
was never my intention.
As to the management contract that is being signed with
BlackHawk, it is $35,000 per month, not $25,000 per month.
In most cases the management company always employs the
CEO, in order that the local hospital will not hire that indi-
vidual and terminate the management contract. This contract
will produce more profit in one year than I was able to gener-
ate with almost 9 years of operation.
In closing, I want to thank all the Staff at Weems Hospital who
have supported me and the community. As I have said nu-
merous times, there are no better Professionals and caring
people. than those at Weems. To the residents of Franklin
County, I want to thank all of those that utilized the hospital
and know what a wonderful job this small hospital and great
staff have provided.
Sincerely,
Michael C. Lake

Franklin County Health

Council Minutes

April 20, 2006
1. New Business
A. Michele Moore, Sheriff's Office-Ms. Moore with the
Sheriffs office addressed the Council on healthcare needs of
inmates. She stated that currently most treatment and medi-
cation administration is being performed by one correctional
officer, which creates increased liability. The lowest bid from
an outside source was $350,000 a year. The current budget
allows for $75,000 for inmate healthcare, and most of that is
already spent. The Franklin County Health Department is
working on a proposal for the Sheriffs office. The Health Coun-
cil will lend its support for the Sheriffs office to the County
Commission.
B. Skip Chormicle, Emergystat Update-Skip Chormicle an-
nounced that the problem with transporting patients to area
hospitals taking too long has been resolved. An ambulance
will be dispatched to Weems when requested for transporting,
and if the other ambulance is making a call, as soon as that
ambulance is clear, the ambulance at the hospital can leave to
transport. He stated that it takes approximately 100 calls per
month to pay for the ambulance service of one ambulance.
Franklin County averages 60 calls per month in the off-sea-
pson, and 100 calls per month in season. Eighty percent of
g'calls are not 911 calls. Gayle Stewart, the EMS Preparedness
tCoordinator for the state, is going to work on coordination
between agencies.
.C. Sr. Shelia Griffin, Seniors Update-Sr. Shelia announced
that the Love Center Church is interested in taking over Se-
inior Services for Franklin County. Bob Conners with Franklin
'Promise and the representative from the Love Center met with
Janice Weiss, Area Agency on Aging, in Tallahassee. As licenses
sand insurance are required, Elder Affairs in Tallahassee may
create an umbrella for the Love Center until they can obtain
.the appropriate licenses and insurance. Franklin Promise will
Stay involved.
ID. Tammi Hardy, Hospital Board-Ms. Hardy reviewed the
'-Hospital Advisory Board's recommendations that were pre-
'sented to the County Commission on April 12. The recom-
Emendation to negotiate a management agreement for up to 12
'months with Blackhawk was approved at the County Com-
*mission meeting on April 18. Ron Wolfe, Interim CEO for
Weems, reviewed the Medicare billing dilemma. He also stated
that representatives from the County and Blackhawk would
be looking into insurance packages and staffing designations
for the employees of Weems. This will be done over the next 3
months.
E. Sales Tax Ordinance and Interlocal Agreement-A copy
of these two documents was reviewed by each member and
comments and suggestions were requested by Dr. Marsh. A
discussion followed with the Council suggesting the following
changes: defining "indigent", more detail in the wording of the
Ordinance, residency requirements for tax oversight commit-
tee, no set amount to the hospital, include mental health, cov-
erage of seasonal and non resident visitors from their home
counties, and use of any surplus funds. Dr. Marsh will ad-
dress these suggestions with the County representatives.

The New Franklin County

Senior Citizen's Center

By Richard E. Noble
I made a stop the other morning over in Carrabelle at the Se-
nior Citizens Center. I just stopped in (between 8 10 am
every weekday but Thursday) for a cup of coffee. But, to my
surprise, they had added biscuits and gravy to their morning
program. The ex-mayor Curly Messer and his wife were serv-
ing it up. I like biscuits and gravy and this was excellent;
even better for free. Donations are, of course, accepted. The
Thursday free lunches, I was told, were also going gangbusters
- with over 100 being served every Thursday.
Things have been jumping over at the Center. They had re-
ceived a number of cash donations with one substantial con-
tribution from the Timber Island Yacht Club.
I met Dr. Thomas Schoborg MD, one of the advisory Board
members-a young fellow in his mid-fifties, a urologist. He is
thinking of retiring in the not too distant future and has in-
tentions of devoting even more time to community and family
here in Franklin County. We were both shocked to find out
that his wife and I were both raised in the same town up in
good old Mess-achusetts-the 1840s Industrial Textile Milltown
of Lawrence.
The Center now has three MDs on their advisory Board. In
addition to Dr. Schoborg and Dr. Nicholson, Doctor Ivan
Backerman from Dog Island has decided that he also wants to
join in on the fun and partner with the enthusiastic crowd
now forming at Franklin County's only non-governmental, in-
dependently managed senior citizen facility. Everybody is
thrilled to have him on board.
They have lots of plans for their new found wealth (certainly
not a fortune, but every little bit helps). First on the list is an


outdoor cooking facility. l'his is going to be great for fish fries
and B-B-Q fund raisers. They are also planning a concrete
walkway to go around the property. The Bochi Ball course is
nearly complete.
The first Saturday Night Dance party was held May 6th. The
music was and will continue to be big band era, fifties, coun-
try, and fox trot-it will also be free. I was told that these
dances will become a Saturday Night regular event. They are
going to start a 7 p.m. and continue as long as the partici-
pants can stay awake.
Before I left they started telling me about their wish list I'm
afraid to tell you but it is even longer than my wife's. I'll tell
you about a few things: exercise equipment-they are plan-
ning a complete exercise room; building supplies and land-
scaping materials (trees, bushes, plants, nails, boards plywood
etc.); they would like to have a soda machine; they need pro-
jection equipment-for slides, DVDs, movies etc.; they need
TVs.
In the people department: they need volunteer workers and
laborers; they need somebody with some financial background
to act as a financial advisor; they would like to get a quilting
club going; they need a mechanic to work on their two vans;
and most of all they need seniors looking for a place to hang-
out. They could also use some more money. If you know any-
body that has some that they have no need for or someone
who truly feels that money is the root of all evil and would like
to remove that evil from their bank account-there are a bunch
of gray-haired people who can assure you that they will put it
to good use-and right here in Franklin County!



Letter To The Editor

FWC Captain Caught Sleeping With His Wife
It is my desire to simply set the record straight as far as the
events that occurred between the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and my husband, Eric Johnston.
Many of you know Eric as the previous Captain of FWC of
Carrabelle, some of you know the truth of what happened to
end Eric's career as a Captain/,and then some of you know the
FWC version.
Since the merge of Florida Marine Patrol and Florida Game &
Fish in 1999, there have been issues, and many within and
outside of the agency are aware. There was a policy adopted
from Game & Fish that required everyone to reside within 20
miles of their designated "dot." Many who were outside of those
20 miles were grandfathered in, but this is a policy that has
existed but has had various degrees of enforcement for 25
years. There are numerous cases where employees have parked
their state vehicles and lived outside of the 20 miles for vari-
ous reasons and it has never been an issue, until now.
This is,good news for the fisherman of Wakulla and Franklin
Counts, because the Colonel of FWC has other priorities than
having'officers enforce laws. Colonel Julie Jones of FWC would
rather spend time and money investigating and demoting loyal
and respectable 25 year law enforcement veterans, like Eric,
rather than spending time enforcing laws. Specifically, Ms.
Jones ordered a FWC Captain Brown to do secret surveillance
on Eric and place a GPS tracking device on his state vehicle
while it was parked at my mother's home in Sopchoppy. Cap-
tain Brown also monitored Eric's comings and goings and yes
he was "busted" for violating General Order # 13 by not really
sleeping at that residence, which to my knowledge, is not re-
ally stated as a requirement in that policy. Instead, he drove
an additional 6, miles in his personal truck to our home and
slept with me, his wife of 13 years and his two children, Allie
Jo, age 7 and Mason, age 5.
This general order was written by a previous Colonel of FWC,
who states it was simply meant as a "guideline" and never
intended to be used for discipline. Captain Brown that secretly
placed the GPS device and performed the surveillance, also
actually resided outside of the 20 mile radius from Headquar-
ters for quite some time with no discipline and remains a Cap-
tain. There is also a Lieutenant that resides here in Wakulla
County and drives to Tallahassee, and due to an "oversight"
on his Supervisor's part, was given an offer to diive his per-
sonal vehicle to and from work and reside with his wife, with
no discipline; Eric was'never offered that. There is exception
after exception, many at Ms. Jones' discretion, but even when
Eric made it known to Ms. Jones that there was limited avail-
able housing due to the National Forest, St. Joe land, the Bay
and just simply out of price range, she refused to allow any
variance for him.
My sole purpose here is to just clarify the truth. Eric Johnston
has been harshly disciplined for nothing more than a ran-
domly enforced policy. There is "nothing more to the story," as
FWC would have you believe, the file is public record, anyone
can pull it who doubts the truth. Eric accepted 'a settlement
offer that reduced his discipline and decided to accept this
punishment and he did this because he felt it was the best
thing for his family, not because of any wrongdoing. It may
have been the best decision for us, but it is not justice for this
discriminatory action he has received.
It is sad that the FWC is in the state of the decline that it is in,
but we did all we could do. I am sorry to see several good

officers of FWC leaving the agency at this time, but I certainly
understand. These officers fear for their own careers because
if this can happen to a 25 year veteran with an impeccable
record, it can happen to any one of them, and there are other
agencies out there that treat their Law Enforcement Officers
with respect and dignity. As I used to pass through Panacea,
the derogatory signs directed at the FWC used to upset me
and I wanted to write and defend the agency, I no longer want
to do that.
Ms. Jones, you want to attack my husband's leadership abil-
ity based on the fact that he "violated policy, therefore was not
leading by example." I find that so ironic given your methods
you used to carry out this investigation and using someone
who had previously violated this same policy. Do you think
you appear to be a good "leader" by standing rigid on a policy
that is out of date in comparison with all of the other law
enforcement agencies? You might try looking at doing some-
thing good .for your agency and seeing a much needed change
in policy that might actually benefit the whole agency and in
the process you may even earn some respect. Now, would be a
great time, as you have removed Eric from this position you so
desired to replace.
It has been made clear to us how Eric's colleagues feel about
him and that they know he was a Supervisor to be respected.
Despite the injustice, we have been able see people stand up
for such a blatant discriminatory and undeserved punishment,
and we are thankful for that. We appreciate all of the support
from our friends and families, special thanks to Ronald Fred
Crum and the Fisherman's Association, Sheriff Harvey, Mr.
Dorinie Crum and Representative Will Kendrick for all that
you all did and tried to do and for caring; and to the Officers,
Lieutenant's and Captain's of the FWC that have gone out of
their way to show and offer their support, we know where you
stand on this issue and we thank you for believing in Eric.
Please continue to keep Eric and our family in your thoughts
and prayers.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Nannie Brooks Johnston


Migratory Bird Day Open

House Tours

St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge will conduct staff-guided
refuge tours May 17, 18, and 19 to celebrate Migratory Bird
Day. Many neotropical migratory birds are declining due to
fragmentation of breeding habitat in North America and loss
of winter habitat in the Caribbean, Central America, and South
America. Participants will have the opportunity to become bet-
ter acquainted with their refuge and its varied wildlife and
wildlife habitats.
One tour will be conducted daily May 17, 18, and 19 (Wednes-
day through Friday). The tours are scheduled to leave the
Refuge's Indian Pass boat dock at 8:00 a.m., E.D.T. and will
return at approximately 1:00 p.m., E.D.T. Transportation
across Indian Pass will be provided for participants of the staff-
guided tours.
Those wishing to participate must make reservations by phone
at 850/653/8808 beginning on April 24. Reservations will be
limited to four individuals per group.
As a reminder, the Refuge is open to the public year-round
during daylight hours except during hunt periods and pre-
scribed burns and/or wildfires. Special permits or prior no-
tice are not required to visit. Transportation to the Refuge is
the responsibility of the visitor when not in conjunction with a
specific refuge activity.
On March 14, 1903, President Roosevelt set aside Pelican Is-
land in Sebastian, Florida as America's, first federal wildlife.
sanctuary. Thanks to his courageous effort, Americans now
have 95 million acres to call their own in 540 very special
places around the country. These lands-the.National Wildlife
Refuge System remain today as America's only network of
federal lands dedicated to wildlife conservation.
"Our, mission is working with others to conserve, protect, arid
enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for.the
continuing benefit of the American people."

On May 6, 2006 Boy Scout

held our 7th Annual Youth

St. George Island. All of the
competitors got to the cap-

to the lack of wind that morn-
ing. As soon as we got there
we beached on little St. George.
Island and we were taxied
across by our safety boat vol-
unteers to eat lunch. The race
started at about 12:00 and
was over at about 4:00. No-
body got hurt but one boat's
mast fell in the middle of a
race, but he was back on the
water by the start of the next
race. The boats sailed to the

(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 6f 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-
facts excavated fromthe earthen mounds and shell
middens built by native peoples over the last two millen-
nia. In the introduction to this edition, David S. Brose
and Nancy Marie White place Moore's investigations
within the context of science, natural history, and anti-
quarianism of his day. They document what happened to
the sites he explored, tell how his findings fit into the
body of his research, and explain how those findings
should be interpreted in the context of southeastern cul-
ture history and modern archaeological theory. Univer-
sity of Alabama Press, 1999, 525 pp. This is an oversized
book measuring 10" x 14" requiring postage and han-
dling charges of $8.50. Bookshop price for the volume is
$60.00. Softcover.

(321) Voices of the Apalachicola. Compiled & Edited by
Faith Eidse, University of Florida Press, 328 pp, 2006.
One of Florida's most endangered river systems is the
Apalachicola River and Bay basin, and it is not just the
natural areas that are threatened but also the history
and culture of its people. In Voices of the Apalachicola,
veteran storyteller Faith Eidse, together with the staff of
the Northwest Florida Water Management District, has
compiled a remarkable collection of oral histories from
more than 30 individuals who have lived out their entire
lives in this region, including the last steamboat pilot on
the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint river system,
sharecroppers who escaped servitude, turpentine work-
ers in Tate's Hell, sawyers of "old-as-Christ" cypress,
beekeepers working the last large tupelo stand, and a
Creek chief descended from a 200-year unbroken line of
chiefs.
As developers increase pressure. and populations grow
within the basin, this timely collection captures a fasci-
nating and unique moment in history, recalling a resource
that once brimmed with life-bigger oysters, larger stur-
geon, healthier Torreya trees. Already several of Eidse's
subjects have passed away and were it not for Voices of
the Apalachicola; their stories would have disappeared,
as surely as the Apalachicola will dwindle away to a
shadow of its natural glory if its historic flows and envi-
ronmental health are not preserved.
The Apalachicola River system is one of the main re-
sources of water not only for Florida, hut also Alabama
and Georgia. It flows unimpeded for 106 miles from Lake
Seminole where the Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers
merge-through the Florida Panhandle into Apalachicola
Bay and finally into the Gulf of Mexico. From emerging
technologies to environmental health, Eidse captures the
battle to preserve and persevere, providing historic and
current photos that show how the basin has changed.
Habitat maps indicate where our sensitive species live
and land preservation maps illustrate how the state of
Florida is trying to protect them. Bookshop price = $29.95.

(21) Outposts on the Gulf by William Warren Rogers. Uni-
versity of Florida Press, Hardcover, 297 pp. In this book,
Rogers traces and documents the economic, social and
political emergence of the Gulf coast port of Apalachicola
and the pristine barrier island, Saint George. From the
earliest times, both the island and Apalachicola have be-
come intertwined. The account of the machinations of con-
troversial developer William Lee Popham is the first phase
of area development, later leading to the controversial
struggles of the 1970s when environmentalists and sea-
food industries fought to determine the ecological and eco-
nomic fate of the Bay area. The Chronicle has obtained
a fresh supply of newly reprinted volumes at an at-
tractive price. Available elsewhere for $35.95 plus ship-
ping and handling. The Chronicle Bookshop price is much
cheaper at $25.00 per volume.


This book focuses on this hitherto neglected
-: era in Native American history and places
Sthe Seminoles in their correct historical po-
sition as a Native American tribe. By exam-
ining the Seminoles' adjustments during
their first decades in the West in light of fed-
eral Indian policy, it concludes that after
thirty years of struggles, caused largely by the faulted policies of the
federal government, these Indians were a "stricken, divided,' and
beggared people scattered over hundreds of miles." For this tribe, the
federal government's program of placing it in a western land away
from white settlers, where it could he nurtured toward civilization
and Christianity, was not only a shortsighted policy but also an illogi-
S cal and inhumane one. Without the stubbornness and determination
.. of these early tribal members, no western Seminole tribe would have
existed in 1990. Truly, the mere survival of the early Seminoles earned
-: ,:; ': them special distinction as a tribe.
.' Published by University of Tennessee Press, 1994, 225 pp.. Hard-
cover. Sold nationally for $28.95. Bookshop price = $24.00.
