SIGNS OF THE TIMES?
A sealed bid auction of the condo project on the acre-
age where the Seabreeze Motel, and later Aaron's on
the Bay once stood may be the first indicator of a
weakening of the huge building boom in Franklin
County. It may be an individual financial problem.
Or it may be an opportunity for people to buy the
condo development units at a lower price. Even if
it's not a sign of what is to come, it is a reminder to
those who live in the area to watch for the signs, and
be wary.

Boom, Bust Or Leveling

Off?

By Sue Cronkite
People who live in Franklin County are usually positive. Those
who fish, oyster and shrimp for a living have some real com-
plaints about nets, laws. and contaminated water from Geor-
gia and Alabama emptying into the Apalachicola Bay.
While locals struggle to find answers to their problems, vaca-
tioners exclaim over some of the most beautiful scenery in the
country. It's like living in a seaside painting. Sunsets are of
such brilliant colors that they take the breath away. Just look-
ing at the blue and blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico
dissolves stress caused by big-city jobs and traffic jams.
New buildings have been going up every day, and signs of re-
sort developments blossom along U. S. Highway 98 as it crosses
the county. Many locals, losing their way of making a living
from the Gulf and bay, find employment in construction, or
take training to work in the new prison in correctional jobs.
While many would liketo see the area stay in a pristine or
more natural state, it is not realistic to think that develop-
ment can be stopped in its tracks. Whether the indicators add
up, it's clear to many locals that something is very much out
of sync.
There have been slowdowns in real estate sales. It may be the
prices are too high, but most know of someone who has been
laid off from a real estate job. There seem to be fewer con-
struction startups.
There are fewer international tourists. A couple traveling
through from Italy said they had heard the towns along the
Gulf Coast were destroyed by hurricanes, but they wanted to
see for themselves.
Many foreign visitors traveled to Disney World in Orlando, then
followed.Highway 98 along the coast to Biloxi and New Or-
leans, stopping in Apalachicola on the way there and on their
way back to Orlando. Conspicuous by their absence are tour-
ists from England, Scotland, Japan, Germany, and even the
numbers of Canadians "snowbirds" have dropped.
Some blame the price of gasoline, which may be partly true. A
rise in fuel prices is usually followed rather quickly by an in-
crease in the cost of everything that is moved over the country
on,-rucks or othor. modes of transportation .,. :. .. :.
Some of Apalachicola's restaurants have international repu-
tations. But the pictures that went out on television to the
world showed the devastation of The Hut, in Apalachicola, and
That Place on 98, and Sharon's in Eastpoint. Other fine res-
taurants which had withstood the storm surge weren't men-
tioned. Julia Mae's in Carrabelle was bulldozed and a huge
new building was soon looming in its place.
It is nice when national indicators and estimates show the
economy is healthy and spending is in full swing. But when a
person looks around locally, it's more like a cool breeze, or
leaves dropping from trees indicating signs of change.
These signs show up long before an actual occurrence. And
even if it can't be considered scientifically correct and can't be
proved by statistics, there is an uneasiness. One clear indica-
tor is when rental housing is so expensive it is difficult for
young people, the elderly, teachers, law officers, and others to
find a place to live.
Within the past few years expensive condos have replaced many
low-rent places where people lived. The prices for homes and
vacation getaways have skyrocketed, especially on the water-
front and along St. George Island beaches.
It is an absolute delight to drive, bicycle, or walk around down-
town Apalachicola, Eastpoint, Carrabelle, Alligator Point,
Lanark, St. George Island, or other places in Franklin County
and bask in the beauty of it all. It's great to have a positive
attitude. But it is also important to consider the signs along
the way and make plans to deal with whatever comes next.


2006 Sea Turtle Nesting

Season Begins
May 1st is the date that typically begins the loggerhead sea
turtle nesting season, here on St. George Island. Volunteers
from STAR, Inc. begin to alert homeowners and visitors about
lights and volunteers from the St. George Island Volunteer
4 Turtlers start walking the beach in order to find, mark and
protect turtle nests.
Sea Turtles have been nesting on St. George Island for thou-
sands of years, but in the last three decades they've had to
compete with us humans for use of the beach. They visit here
for a short time each year, to nest, while we build permanent
homes along the edge of their habitat. We light up our homes,
while they prefer the darkness.
Research has proven that our house lights, our street lights,
and even our flashlights, disturb nesting females and disori-
ents hatchling turtles on their way to the water.
Franklin County adopted the Lighting Ordinance for Marine
Turtle Protection in June 1998. The purpose and intent of this
1 ordinance is intended to protect hatchling marine turtles from
the adverse effects of artificial lighting, provide overall improve-
ment in nesting habitat degraded by light pollution, and in-
crease successful nesting activity and production of hatchlings
on the beaches of Franklin County, Florida.
The Lighting Ordinance in its present form describes stan-
dards for new construction activities as well as standards foi
existing lighting, on homes and businesses, seaward of th(
Coastal Construction Control Line.
Since 1998, there have been 73 nests that were negatively
affected by lights, both house lights and street lights. 3,77(
hatchling marine turtles were recorded as disoriented since(
the adoption of this ordinance, to be eaten by crabs, ants anc
mammals. The few that make it to the water, after wandering
around the beach, become so weak, their chances of survival
in the water are small.
Many of these disorientations were caused by lights on homes
directly along the beach, but homes across the street from th4
beach, and other homes, further away, not covered by the Light
ing Ordinance, have also contributed to the deaths of hatchlin
turtles. Some of the disorientations are caused by the sam'


houses, year after year.

Eidse Brings History Up

Close
By Sue Cronkite
Faith Eidse brought history to Apalachicola as a speaker and
questioner at the quarterly meeting of the Apalachicola Area
Historical Society May 19. Her voice, as she described people,
places, and customs, whetted the imaginations of members
gathered in the Carriage House next door to the Raney House
on Market Street.
President Laura Moody said the Historical Society has the
Carriage House open on Saturday for people to do research
from 1 to 4 p.m. and her telephone number is on the door for
those who need access at other times. Back issues of the
Apalachicola Times from its beginning more than 100 years
ago are available for people to peruse.
"David Butler has given us a reader-printer," she said, "a Bell
and Howell. But, we need someone to put it together." Ken
Mansuay was appointed to either put the reader-printer to-
gether or find someone who can. "We have a reader, but it's
not very handy for people who wish to retrieve reading mate-
rial. We are also writing a grant for another printer," said Moody.
"We want to make written history more available."
The annual meeting of the Historical Society is set for June 17
Sat the Carriage House. Officers will be elected, with nomina-
tions from the floor. "We have an anonymous gift of copies of
Newspapers from 1834, and CDs from Pearl Marshall's fam-
ily," said Moody.
SAmong other items recently donated is a map from Mark Fried-
r man showing in red the area of the 1901 fire. Members of the
SRaney family also sent 21 lbs. of historical documents, in-
cluding a picture of Mrs. Raney, a picture of David Raney Sr.
The group voted to purchase archival quality boxes and file
y folders so that the items can be preserved.
e "We need help with cataloging the documents and pictures in
1 order for them to be made available for research," said Moody.
g "We also need help with the Raney House, keeping it open for
L tours and visitors. Even if a person could give an hour on
Saturday, it would make a difference." At present Mrs. Moody
and her husband Alex open the Raney House on Saturdays.
e Moody said the city-owned historic home is in bad need of
- maintenance. "A bedroom upstairs has water damage from
g Hurricane Ivan which has not yet been repaired," she said.
e Under the charter, the city is supposed to maintain the build-
ing and the Historical Society give tours of the historic struc-
ture.
"We can only use interest from the Raney House Trust ac-
count," she added. "And we are still trying to get shutters. The
company now wants to know the replacement cost of the house


Ta'Vis Janay Bell received the departmental award in math-
ematics; Heather Marie Lee and Kristen Faye Tarantino in
business; Tamra Melissa Sasnett in journalism, Tereceda

and the interior, which is not easy to figure out."
The fascinating stories pointed out by Eidse from the book,
Voices of the Apalachicola, held the audience in thrall. Eides
is public information specialist with the Northwest Florida
Water Management District. She described herself as compiler
and editor "of the wonderful stories of people up and down the
Apalachicola River." The veteran storyteller, together with the
staff of the Northwest Florida Water Management District, com-
piled the stories of more than 30 individuals who have lived
out their entire lives in the Apalachicola River and Bay basin.
Many of those Eidse interviewed are now dead, including Lavere
Walker, onetime Mayor Bobby Howell, Tom Corley, and re-
cently deceased seafood pioneer Buddy Ward. Stories from In-
dian Chief Andrew Ramsey includes how Indians were enticed
to go to Oklahoma: "Men in boats said they'd. take them to
Indian Country."

Hurricane Forum At Gulf

Coast Community College


The forum, entitled "Disaster!
How can we meet the chal-
lenge?", will be held on June
1 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in
the GCCC Student Union
Conference Center.
Brian Carriere is bringing his
personal story of destruction
and recovery to Panama City
on Thursday, June 1, at Gulf
Coast Community College. A
survivor of Hurricane
Katrina's wrath, he will par-
ticipate in the community fo-
rumwhich will focus on how
the community can work to-
gether to minimize the effects
of a disaster, either natural or
man-made.
The forum's moderators will
concentrate the discussion to
the preparations needed be-
fore the disaster, the immedi-
ate response, and the long-
term recovery of the commu-
nity. The audience will have
the opportunity to actively
engage in the discussion
throughout the session. It is
the goal of the program, co-


sponsored by the Bay County
Chamber of Commerce and
GCCC, to involve the commu-
nity and learn from lessons
gained from previous disas-
ters.
Mr. Carriere is a history and
American government in-
structor at Mississippi Gulf
Coast Community College-
Jefferson Davis Campus in
Gulfport, MS. He is also a city
councilman and was elected
only a few months before
Gulfport was devastated in
the storm. He and his family
fled the destruction of Hurri-
cane Katrina and ended up in
Panama City, along with many
other evacuees. Share in his
memories and insights about
what happened when he and
his neighbors returned to
their homes and the steps
they have taken to slowly re-
build their city.

Franklin

Briefs

May 16, 2006

Present: Cheryl Sanders,
Chairperson; Jimmy
Mosconis; BevinTPutnal;
Noah Lockley, Jr. and
Russell Crofton.

Alan Pierce-Director of
Administrative Services
Mr. Pierce introduced Mr.
Bryce Ward, Dixie Youth
League President, requesting
using the St. George Island
County Park for a fund raiser.
This request was approved.
Board action to approve a
Resolution to apply for a grant
to build a public boat ramp on
St. George Island, and to
pledge the county's Boating
Improvement Trust Fund as
a match. This grant request
is for approximately
$1,000,000 and it will improve
the county's chances if a lo-
cal match is part of the. appli-
cation. The Boating Improve-
ment Fund has $124,000.
Board action was to approve
the resolution.
Informed the Board that. the
Florida Communities Trust
grant application to purchase
the south side of Sportsman
Lodge was submitted. 115
applications were submitted
seeking $240 Million dollars
worth of projects and at this
time only $66 Million is avail-
able, so the ranking of the
applications is going to be very
critical. We willknow more in
the next few months.
Informed the Board that Mr.
Michael Hill, FWC, had a pub-
lic workshop to discuss the
moving of 64,000 cubic yards
of sand that will be offloaded
at a landing at Bloody Bluff
and then moved by truck to
the new consolidated school
site. The project will begin in
June, and will continue for
several months. It will take
approximately 3200 truck-
loads to haul the material:
FWC said their contractor will
maintain the road and return
it to its original condition.
Provided the Board with copy
of loan application submitted
to Enterprise Florida for
$600,000 loan for Weems
Hospital. I have spoken to the
GoVernor's Office and the' lan
funds should be,available by
Jdhe' T5;' which is-the' die-d--
line I gave the Governor's Of-
fice.
Provided the Board copy of'
letter written to AHCA in ref-
erence to paying AHCA fines
and penalties.
Provided the Board with copy
of letter submitted to Liberty
County saying the Board is
interested in joining a Trans-
portation Regional Incentive
Program (TRIP) with Liberty.
The next grant application is
in October, so we hope to have
more information by then.
Provided the Board with copy
of letter from DOT that was
written to. the City of
Apalachicola stating that DOT
believes a traffic signal is "not"
justified at the intersection of
Ave E and US 98 in
Apalachicola. The letter rec-
ommends the Dept. will in-
crease storage for vehicles
turning left on US 98, which
to my understanding could
decrease the parking available
on US 98 in order to make
room for a longer turn lane.
The letter also recommends
the County increase the turn
lane on Ave E in front of the
front door of the bank. I rec-
ommend the Board confer
with the City before doing any
work in a city street.
Informed the Board that Mr.
Dan Rothwell, applicant for
County Engineer position, will
be at the Board meeting on
June 6th to meet with the
Board: I recommend the
Board hire Mr. Rothwell but
it will the Board's decision.
Mr. Rothwell is willing to ac-
cept $78,000 salary if the
Board makes the position a
Senior Management, retire-
ment position. Board action to
direct staff to prepare the
proper documentation to
make the County Engineer
position Senior Management.
The Board approved.
Last meeting the Board tabled
action for all parties to be no-
tified of the issue related to a


variance request on Dog Is-
land. The parties have been
notified. The applicant is here.
and the Dog Island Conserva-


tion District has sent a letter
objecting to any setback vari-
ances. Board action on vari-
ance request for Dog Island,
Lot #16, Christian Amuroux.
The county Board of Adlust-
ment has recommended in
favor of granting the variance.
Members of the audience may
want to speak on this issue.
The variance requests were
approved by the Board.
From several meetings ago,
the Board tabled an action for
Mr. Langston to get with the
Planning Office on a compro-
mise for his variance request
at Carrabelle Beach. I have
met with Mr. Langston. Mr.
Langston had an existing
house that was destroyed by
Hurricane Dennis. His exist-
ing house did not meet the
setbacks and he would like to
build back a house that does
not meet the setbacks, which
is why he applied for a vari-
ance. Mr. Langston can accept
a variance for a 40 wide house
on a 50 foot wide lot. The
Board approved.
Seek Board direction on per-
manent name for the new
county boat ramp at the end
of Bluff Road. Currently many
locals call it the Pine Log Boat
Ramp, but there is already a
Pine Log Creek and a Pine Log
Bridge on CR 67 north of
Carrabelle, and I recommend
that the Bluff Road Boat
Ramp not be called the Pine
Log Boat Ramp. Mr. Mosconis
suggested that the boat ramp
be named: The Henry
Abercrombie, Jr. Boat Ramp
-his suggestion was ap-
proved.
Board authorization for the
airport engineers to advertise
for bids for the renovation of
Runway 13/31. This is a fully
funded FAA project. The
Board approved.
On Alligator Point, Mr. Ken
Osborne, APTA (Alligator
Point Taxpayer's Association)
president, wants the Board to
be aware that APTA is pursu-
ing a preference poll of all the
property owners on the Point,
which is approximately 1000
lots, on what kind of beach
renourishment project the
property owners would sup-
port. Neither the county nor
APTA have given Mike
Dombrowski a preference so
he can not finish his beach
renourishment design. Mr.
Osborne should be present in
case the Board wants more
information.
Informed the Board that two
county employees had ex-
pressed interest in the Main-
tenance position at the court-
Shouse, but after reviewing the
job duties, both turned down
the 'oppol-tunity.' I Will"now'
proceed with interviewing
non-county employees.
Sales tax update- I would like
to provide an overview of the
sales tax issue before Ms.
Dodds begins. I have dis-
cussed this with Ms. Dodds
and I believe she concurs that
I should go first.
The Board has directed its
Attorney to investigate the
structure and approval pro-
cess necessary for a local
sales tax. The Board has re-
quested the Health Council
review what the County Attor-
ney has developed and make
comments. Ms. Gayle, Dodds
is here today to discuss the
Health Council's comments
with the Board about Mr.
Shuler's efforts. However, de-
spite all the-fine work that has
been done by Mr. Shuler and
the Health Council, a critical
part of the sales tax issue is
missing, and can not be filled
in by Mr. Shuler, and most
likely the Health Council does
not have time to fill it in be-
cause the deadline for getting
the sales tax to the ballot is
Sept. 1, a mere 3 months
away. The missing link is an
explanation of what exactly is
the sales tax going to do, what
is it going to build, what is it
going to provide. Is there go-
ing to be a new hospital? How
big? Where will it be located?
Will there be a clinic in an-
other part of the county so
that everybody has access to
better health care?
At this time, there is no pro-
posal being put forward for
the public to understand ex-
actly what the tax is going to
be for. The county voters saw
and responded to a success-
ful effort to develop a tourist
tax, and I recommend the
Board consider following that
same approach. With the
tourist tax, a committee was
established with the ex-
pressed purpose of evaluating
the need for a tourist tax, put-
ting together a specific pro-
posal ofimprovements the tax
would address, and then the


committee actually funded a
campaign to educate the pub-
lic on the benefit of the tax.

And the tourist tax passed-on
its first referendum. The sales.
tax issue is not following that'.
pattern.
The Health Council has in
general terms educated the
public, and in general terms
developed the concept of bet-
ter health care, but the Coun-
cil does not have the informa-
tion and the time necessary
to actually put a proposal to-
gether for what the tax will do.
Somebody needs to develop a
plan for a new hosnitn'i f a
certain size to be located in a
certain area, with a satellite
clinic located in a certain area,
and all of this to cost a spe-
cific amount of money, and
provide this information to the
public so the public will know
what they are or are not get-
ting if the sales tax is passed.
This needs to be done by Sept.
1, so that when the ballot is
printed the public will know
why the issue is even on the
ballot.
At this time, the information.
I just presented to you is not
being developed, and until
some group takes a leadership
role the sales tax debate will
have no substance, and the
public will be confused on
what they are voting on.
Board discussion with Ms..
Dodds participating. The is-
sue was discussed and a plan
to construct an Advisory
Board was set immediately
into motion. Mr. Putnal and
Mr. Lockley were adament
that these problems be re-
solved before September 1st.
Presented to the Board clari-
fication of building height cal-
culations, as recommended
by the Planning and Zoning
Commission. This fixes the
height of the houses in the
county at their present height,
but allows for the bottom of
the house to fluctuate with
flood zones and how much
money someone wants to save
with their flood insurance.
Board action to send it to a
public hearing in July, if so
desired by Board. The Board
tabled the issue.
Mr. Bruce Ballister, ARPC, on
the DOT five year work plan.
462 Structure-Permitted
Above Height Limit And Modi-
fications: The building height
limitations shall be modified
as provided by the zoning dis-
tricts in accordance with the
following standards and ex-
ceptions:
1. Building height is deter-
mined by the standards for
the zoning districts and shall
be measured from highest
adjacent grade. The height f'
the first habitable floor shall'
not exceed. (.14) fourteen feet
above grade except as re-
quired by the County Flood
Hazard Ordinance and shall
not exceed the elevation re-
quired by such district if such
elevation is greater then (14)
fourteen feet above grade. The
overall roof height shall not
exceed 46 feet above the high-
est adjacent grade with a
maximum of three habitable
stories.
A habitable-story is defined as
an enclosure which is heated/
cooled or has living accommo-

opment Council
At the last meeting the Tour-
ist Development Council ap-
proved $280,500 in infra-
structure grant requests from
the County and two munici'
pal governments. These
projects include:
Beach Park Facility Develop-
ment: Total $49,500; St.
George Island Boat Ramp:,
$24,750; Alligator Point Dune
Walkovers: $24,750.
Recreational Projects: Total
$104,500i Frank in County's


Kendrick Park: $100,000;
Apalachicola Skateboard
Park: $4,500.
Infrastructure Construction:
Total $126,500; Apalachicola
Scipio Creek: $65,000;
Carrabelle Improvements to
Riverwalk, Lighthouse, Camp
Gordon Johnston: $35,900;
Franklin County for SGI Park-
ing Lot: $26,500.
In addition, recognizing that
we collected some $100,000
more last year than we pro-
jected, the TDC is asking the
Commission to approve a
budget amendment request to
allow for the additional expen-
diture of $50,000 to complete
two of the infrastructure re-
quests that we were not able
to fund completely with the
$280,500 on hand. That ad-
ditional $50,000 would allow
for an additional $40,000 to
complete the St. George Island
Parking Lot, and $10,000
more for the Scipio Creek
Marina Project in
Apalachicola.
Finally, the TDC approved the
attached agreements with the
two Chambers of Commerce
for the Visitor Center funding
which was included in the or-
dinance. These contracts also
need to be approved by the
Commission.

Van Johnson-Solid
Waste Director
Animal Control Ordinance
FOR BOARD ACTION: Veteri-
narian Dr. Hobson Fulmer,
has brought to my attention
that Section 4(c) of the County
Animal Control ordinance
governing rabies vaccinations
is out of sync with the State
Statue.
Currently Section 4(c) reads in
part that. "All dogs and cats
shall be vaccinated against
rabies annually by a licensed
veterinarian."
i However, the Florida Legisla-
ture has changed the Statue
to read that. "The owner of
every dog, cat, and ferret shall
have the animal re-vaccinated
twelve months after the initial
vaccination. Thereafter, the
interval between vaccinations
shall conform to the vaccine
manufacturer's directions."
Which in some cases are one
to three year intervals, de-
pending upon the labeled du-
ration of each vaccine used.
Therefore, I'm requesting
Board approval to start the
process to make Section 4(c)
of the County Animal Control
ordinance agree with the State
Statue. Dr. Fulmer is here this
morning should the Board
have any questions. ACTION
REQUESTED: Motion autho-
rizing the County Attorney to
start the process to make Sec-
tion 4(c) of the County Animal
Control ordinance governing
rabies vaccinations agree with
the State Statue. The Board
approved the action.

Rabies Vaccination
The Federal government li-
censes all rabies vaccinations
used in the US. Each vaccine
is tested for a specific dura-
tion of immunity, usually ei-
ther one or three years. Vac-
cinations have become quite
controversial in the past few
years. Many scientists and
veterinarians feel that we may
be over-vaccinating pets re-
sulting in adverse reactions.
Vaccination has been associ-
ated with. certain (although
rare) conditions such as tu-.
mors and allergic reactions.
Vaccines, including rabies
vaccine are an important part
of maintaining animal health


and protecting the public.
However a "one size fits all"
approach is no longer appli-
cable. Risks vary among indi-
vidual pets and all may not
need to be vaccinated the
same. Although very few cases
of rabies have been reported
in Franklin county, there have
been cases reported in neigh-
boring counties.
* Franklin County's Animal
Control Ordinance has always
had a one year Rabies vacci-
nation requirement. This was
based on current wisdom and
state regulations at the time
the ordinance was drafted.
State laws have changed since
then as well as current rec-
ommendations by Veterinary
experts. New vaccines are
emerging that have fewer side
effects and longer duration as
technology advances. The
state of Florida now recog-
nizes the labeled duration of
the vaccine used, whether 1
or 3 years.
I would recommend that the
county ordinance be changed
to be similar to state statutes
to recognize the labeled dura-
tion of immunity of each vac-
cine. Each pet' s veterinarian
could then vaccinate the pet
based on its individual pet's
needs. This would not only be
safer for the pet. it would save
pet owners money by allow-
ing less frequent vaccinations,
while still protecting the pub-
lic.

The Franklin Chronicle


A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


26 May 2006 Page 3


Briefs from Page 2

County that Alligator Point
has probably received a
smaller share of its taxes than
any other section of the
County except perhaps for
Saint George Island. The ne-
glect is obvious:
Our roads are in the worst
shape of any in the County.
The area in front of the
former campground has never
been adequately addressed
over the years.
Franklin County residents
from all over the County are
forced to climb over rubble to
fish. This is an accident and
a liability waiting to happen.
Peoples' homes are being
dusted as every vehicle
passes, taking away their
quiet enjoyment.
Houses have been destroyed
due to erosion and storm
events that if not for better
planning and action on the
County's part would still be on
the tax rolls.
Alligator Point needs many of
its major roads repaved (some.
are bare of paving now), the
moving of the road inland
through the former camp-
ground (and not with seven
turns, some more than 90
degrees) and beach re-nour-
ishment that ensures the fu-
ture viability of the entire
point, provides revenue to the
County in the form of high
property taxes and is a recre-
ational amenity for all the citi-
zens of the County..
We realize that the solutions
to these problems are being
worked out, but remain a
moving target and are likely
to remain so for a while
longer. Today, we want to ad-
dress the funding mechanism.
APTA is in the midst of pro-
viding information to all prop-
erty owners of the Point, both
residents and non-residents
alike so that they may vote on
the level of taxation (if any)
they are willing to support. We
will have the results of this
straw poll in June. After that,
the board of APTA will vote a
recommendation that will be
presented to you.
What I want to make the
i County Commission aware of
today is that the likely result
will be a repudiation of any
Expense specifically targeted
at the!pro.perty,o,wners ofAlli-.
gator Point and environs. Lo-
cal funding for paving and
other improvements for rev-
enue producing tourist area
like Alligator Point is unjust
and unwarranted. If Alligator
Point had received it's pro rata
share of tax revenue through
the years, there would be no
issue. As it is today, we are
forced to beg for what is our
due. In addition, we resent the
"us vs. them" atmosphere that
is frequently aired; It is both
disingenuous and a disservice
to your constituents when ar-
guments are couched in this
manner.
APTA asks that any funding
gap between the proceeds pro-
vided by State & Federal


EDITORIAL & COMMENTARY


grants, potential developer
exactions/contributions and
any County funded portion in
payment for the aforemen-
tioned projects be covered by
a County Bond and paid for
out of General Revenues as a
County wide benefit, not an
Alligator Point luxury.
Preliminary numbers appear
to show that this option might
accomplish all of our objec-
tives and cost the County little
or nothing after increased
property tax revenues are col-
lected from the construction
of new structures and the re-
furbishment of other struc-
tures are considered. Further,
;as a consequence of complet-
ing these projects we will at-
tract more renters which will
result in the TDC showing an
increase in revenue due to the
attractiveness and utility pro-
vided by safe access, beauti-
ful beaches and upgraded
construction that will follow
the contemplated improve-
ments. Lastly, the County will
have "put to bed" an issue that
was never fixed. Let's do it
right and not penalize any one
group for what is, and will re-
main a wonderful County as-
set.

Dale and Rex Phipps-
Zoning issue
North Franklin Street-
Eastpoint
"The agreement between Mr.
White and Rex (Phipps)" Dale
Phipps informed the Board.
"was-from what I under-
stand-that Mr. White would
remove all the debris in the
backyard if he were allowed to
keep his equipment there as
he needed. And also, he was
going to bring some kind of le-
gal documentation to Rex to
state that. That was supposed
to happen April 26th. We have
not seen any of that. I think
that the pictures pretty much
speak for themselves." Mr.
Dale Phipps had previously
supplied the Board with pho-
tographs of the disruptive
scene in his neighborhood.
Alan Pierce then spoke to the
issue. "I have written a letter
on behalf of Mr. Phipps stat-
ing that it is a violation of the
use of the property. I look at
it as more of an industrial use
there as opposed to a residen-
tial or home industry. And
that is where, we sit. Until I
get' ,rome guidance 'here, I'
dpr't,kn1owwere to go;'; ,-, ,
"As the County attorney," in-
terjected Mr. Shuler. "I did
meet with Mr. White and I
have also spoken with some
of the neighbors about this
situation. They were going to
meet and discuss this among
themselves and see if they
could come to some kind of
mutual agreement-obviously
they have not ... I think we
need to take some action."
The discussion then centered
on the supposed agreement
which did not seem to be
forthcoming and Mr. White's
continued degradation of the
site. Mr. Phipps explained
that no contract, documenta-

tion or agreement had been
provided. And not only hadn't
the land been cleared and
improved, as promised, that
fresh shucked oyster shells
were the most recent addition
to the property in question.
Mr. Crofton then recom-
mended that the County At-
torney proceed with the ap-
propriate legal action-includ-
ing enforcement or whatever
else was deemed necessary.
Mr. Crofton's motion was sec-
onded by Mr. Mosconis and
the motion was approved.

Open Bids-EOC
Retrofit-HMGP Funds
"These are bids," Alan Pierce
informed the Board, "to be
utilized in the event the
County received the HMGP
funds ($200,090) ... that the
County can utilize for im-
provements. One of the
projects suggested was the
EOC. There has not been any
work done on it since the
County took it over. The build-
ing was thirty years old when
the County got it. It needs a
new roof. And so we are ap-
plying the funds to that pur-
pose.
Mike Rundel and Butch Baker
opened the bids.
First bid opened was from A
K Contracting from Panama
City. They allowed two op-
tions. 1) $102,767.40 and 2)
$128.483.27.
The'second bid was from PSBI
of Tallahassee: $60.894.00.
A motion was then passed to
have the qualified parties
study the bids and return
their recommendation to the
Board at a later date.
Pre-event contracts for debris
removal recommendations
were then offered. The bids
were from: Crowder Gulf:
Asplundh Environmental,
Wood Resource Recovery. The
recommendation was to
award the contracts to
Crowder Gulf and Asplundh.
Mike Rundel: "We also ask to
pursue information on
Grubbs Emergency Services.
These pre-event contracts are
at no cost to the County. With
these in place. Franklin
County will have the flexibil-
ity to ick and choose a firm
according to the severity of the
event' resources needed, and
the cost to the County. It is
also recommended ihai. two
\ ,_-~ ll'iri-i'- Sapp Brothers
C untra.l ng' "and Satinder.s
Land Work, be utilized in post
event pre-management in ac-
cordance with the capabilities
and the County goals."
It was then noted that local
businesses are automatically
included for consideration
and subcontracting in these
contracts awarded by the
County.

T. Michael Shuler
Report
"We are still working on the
Forgotten Coast TV contract.
There are a couple of issues
that I have asked them to spe-


cifically look at-to gear the
contract so that it is more an
education and government
access channel as opposed to
a public TV channel. As I have
looked into this briefly, the
public access is a term-a
kind of art. I have asked them
(Helen Spohrer and associ-
ates) to come up with some
tentative language ... I have
already mentioned to you the
letter about the ARCP." A
meeting for that afternoon
(May 16th) concerning the liti-
gation with GE was then can-
celled. "I was hoping that we
would have some court meet-
ing or mitigation but nothing
substantive has occurred ... I
have for the Board's approval
... an explanation of the final
agreement with Blackhawk. I
would request that there be
an authorization of the
Chairman's signature on that
contract."
The request authorization was
then approved.
"Good news and bad news ....
bad news is that there has
been an appeal filed in the
Wilson v. Franklin Coutnty law
suit. The judge had dismissed
that suit with prejudice. The
plaintiff has filed and appeal-
that means that we have to
spend more time litigating this
case. We don't have any
choice in the matter."
The Wilson case had to. do.
with the beachfront of private
dwelling on St George Island
and whether or not these ar-
eas are to be considered pub-
lic property or belong to the
individual property owners.
"The Good news is that we
now have from the St Joe
Company the properly ex-
ecuted deed for the Leonard's
Boat Landing ramp (highway
98 and the Ochlocknee River).
It needs to be recorded (cost -
$2800) and we also need the
Chairman's signature to allow
the St Joe Company to receive
a charitable credit donation
for $400.000."
The above recommendations
were approved by the Board.

Bob Allen Alert
In the middle of the proceed-
ings, local businessman, Bob
Alien, owner of a camping
area on Magnolia Bluff in
Eastpoint. scurried to the po-
dium. He was out of breath

policy and a potential detri-
ment to integrity of
Apalachicola Bay.
Alan Pierce dismissed himself
momentarily to go to his of-
fice and send someone out to
the site in question. Before
this action Mr. Pierce in-
formed the Board and the
public that he had received a
call informing him that there
would be some brush hogging
going on at the site-the new
Eastpoint Library on Magno-
lia Bluff across from Mr.
Allen's Trailer Park and Fish
Camp.

Veteran's Healthcare:

A Promise And A Priority

By Congressman Allen Boyd
Since I took office in 1997, I have traveled throughout the 2nd
Congressional District talking to many of North Florida's 71,000
veterans. These heroic men and women, who served our coun-
try with honor and distinction, continually raise valid con-
cerns on crucial issues such as the need for quality healthcare
and immediate access to this care. Unquestionably, caring for
our veterans should be one of our nation's most important
priorities, but with increasing budget constraints and a new
generation of wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Af-
ghanistan, it is clear that we have a huge challenge when ad-
dressing the needs of our veterans today and tomorrow.
With a soaring national debt, out of control deficit spending,
and funding problems within the Department of Veterans Af-
fairs (VA), difficult choices are before the public and Congress
with respect to our nation's budget priorities. However, we
cannot promote fiscal restraint on the backs of our veterans
who have already sacrificed enough for our country. In order
to adequately fund programs that are vital to veterans, Con-
gress must have a realistic and honest portrayal of the funds
that are needed and the number of new veterans entering the
,VA medical system and then make spending cuts in other ar-
eas to fund these programs.
Unfortunately, the Administration has not been forthcoming
about the funding needs of our veterans. Last year, the Ad-
ministration acknowledged a $1 billion shortfall in veterans'
healthcare funding for 2005. However, when all was said and
done, this funding gap was closer to $3 billion, affecting both
2005 and 2006. I worked in Congress to fix this shortfall with
the passage of an emergency supplemental appropriations bill
totaling $1.5 billion.
The funding problems don't end there. More than 260;000
veterans nationwide who applied to receive healthcare at the
VA in 2005 were turned away because of the Administration's
decision to limit veterans' access to VA hospitals, clinics and
medications. In Florida alone, over 27,000 veterans were de-
nied access to VA-provided healthcare.
Refusing to recognize this injustice and considerable strain
on our veterans, the Administration this year proposed a new
$250 enrollment fee and an increase in co-payments on pre-
scriptions from $8 to $15 for certain veterans. This was the
fourth year in a row that the Administration has recommended
higher fees and co-payments in its budget request, and Con-
gress consistently rejects these proposals. While the
Administration's request boosts the VA budget by 10 percent,
this is dependent on the new healthcare user fee and the dou-
bling of drug co-payments, making this increase superficial at
best. We should increase funding for veterans programs by
making cuts in other areas, not by taking it out of our veter-
ans' own pockets.
As in years past, I rejected the Administration's proposed in-
crease in enrollment fees and prescription co-payments in the
Military Quality of Life Appropriations Act for 2007, along with
other members of the :House Appropriations Committee., The'
House will vote on this legislation this week, which provides a
total of $136 billion-in-mandatory'and discretionary funds for
veterans programs.
While this is a substantial increase compared to last year's
funding levels, there is still more that Congress can do to honor
our commitment to America's veterans. I supported an amend-
ment that would provide an additional $1.82 billion for veter-
ans' healthcare in 2007. This amendment specifically helped
fund initiatives in mental health and prosthetics, two of the
biggest challenges facing the VA since the Iraq War. Unfortu-
nately, this amendment was not included in the Military Quality
of Life Appropriations bill, but the overall increase in funding
for our veterans in the bill is a step in the right direction.
As thousands more soldiers come back from Iraq and Afghani-
stan, it is our duty to provide sufficient resources so that our
veterans can receive the quality care they were promised and
they deserve. Through adequate federal funding and honest
budgeting, we can protect current programs and honor the
commitment we made to our veterans. As a Vietnam veteran,
I've long understood the sanctity of this commitment, and I'll
keep working to make sure we keep it.

You Can Help Save

Sea Turtles

May to October is the season when sea turtles visit our beaches.
To report any sea turtle activity, call Bruce Drye at 927-2103,
or call the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve
at 670-4783. Remember that the Research Reserve is a state
office, and will not be open on weekends or after 5:00 p.m.
Bruce Drye is the Marine Turtle Permit Holder on St. George
Island and has an answering machine for messages.
Resident volunteers walk the beaches of St. George Island ev-
ery morning to document turtle activity, but there are a few
things that our human visitors can do to make a sea turtle's
visit a successful one. At the end of the day, remove all per-
sonal articles and refuse from the beach. Any obstacles to a
turtle's progress as she attempts to make.her way up on the
beach, could keep her from nesting. Articles like chairs, cool-
ers, screen tents and gazebos, and boats also keep hatchling
turtles from reaching the water. Among the things that can
endanger and trap adult and hatchling turtles are holes dug
in the sand, these same holes can cause our human visitors
to fall and be injured. Please try to fill in the holes at the end of
the day.
If you visit a beachfront home, or if you can see the beach
from your windows, please drape your windows or dim your
interior lights. Use the outside lights only when absolutely
necessary, for reasons of safety or security. Check to make
sure all the outside lights are off before you retire for the
evening. These precautions are important because the nest-
ing turtle is looking for a dark location to deposit her eggs,
and will shy away from brightly lit areas. Even more impor-
tant is the fact that hatchling turtles are instinctively drawn
towards light. The horizon over the water would normally be
the attraction, but a hatchling will mistakenly be lured to a
house light. When that happens, hundreds of baby turtles will
expend all their precious energy under a house or in the sand
dunes becoming food for crabs, cats, dogs, raccoons, birds
and red ants, never reaching the ocean.
When walking the beach at night, allow your eyes to become
adjusted to the dark in order or you to walk without a flash-
light. Even a flashlight can spook a nesting turtle. If you must
use a flashlight, use a red LED flashlight. If you come upon a
turtle, turn off your tight immediately, and stand still and quiet,
do not approach the turtle. Watch the turtle's activity from a
distance in order not to interrupt her. Since sea turtles are
protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act as well as
Florida law, it is against the law to disturb a nesting turtle, its
nest, or hatchling turtles on their way to the water. Visitor's
observations of turtle activity are important and can be re-
ported to a volunteer or to the above phone numbers.
Other important phone numbers are: Plantation Security: 927-
2362 and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission:
1-888-404-3922.

Eidse Brings History from Page 1


Apalachicola Historical Society members gather
around as Faith Eidse signs copies of her book Voices
of the Apalachicola at the Carriage House. From left,
seated, Laura Moody, president, with Eidse. Stand-
ing, from left, Shirley Taylor, Alex Moody, Ken
Mansuay, and Bedford Watkins. Eidse's book records
oral history stories from people along the
Apalachicola River.

Among other stories are first-hand accounts of Charles Daniel
Randall Andrew Daniels-Sakim, who grew up "with the forest
being everybody's, the river being everybody's." Sakim is a
Creek language and culture teacher in north central Florida,
founder of a Creek archive collection, and webmaster of the
Creek Culture Web site (www.tfn.net/Museum).
"Creek communities up and down the Apalachicola, from
Eastpoint to Blountstown, have invited Sakim to help them
revive language, culture, and ritual," wrote Eides. Sakim is a
maker of medicine, or shaman, one who is "with the invisible
worlds," as he tells it in the book. At the time of the Indian
removal, Sakim said, the difference in color was not as pro-
nounced, and many who opted to "pass for white," stayed.
Sakim said he "tries to teach Muskogee culture and dress and
some of the language and the music." He said the original
(ceremonial) grounds is near Havana I-10 went right over
the middle of it. "When Mr. Ramsey's group asked us to relo-
cate in Blountstown, there were no Indian tribes in West
Florida," said Sakim. But there were Indian families who had
a fair knowledge of their genealogy and their background.
When Sakim started his language class, "the people showed
up in war bonnets and feathers, straight out of John Wayne
movies." There were small bits of surviving mechanisms "the
way Mama did something is the way Grandma and Great-
grandma did it. The so-called folk cures were shared, and so
it's hard to tell the origin of who got what from whom."
In the book, James Barkuloo tells about counting the disap-
pearing fish, detailing what happened with the construction of
the Jim Woodruff Lock and Dam.
A rollicking memoir of Neel Yent, written down in 1984, in-
cludes a story about hunting a panther with a muzzle-loading
rifle. A tragic event during the Civil War tells how after two
older brothers rode off on horseback to join the Confederates,
Neel's ancestor saw a Union gunboat enter the bay through
East Pass near Dog Island,. "A landing crew of several men
came ashore in a small boat and burned their house down.
They claimed that this was retaliation for Grandpa shipping
large quantities of fish to feed the Confederate Army."
In Billy Kersey's reminiscing is a story: "C.C. Land owned quite
a bit just east of 65. I heard they had a cutting' over there. One
worker cut one's throat, said he stuck the turpentine and wiped
it all over his throat; sealed the blood off. He walked about 6
miles to a house. And he beat on the door, and they wouldn't
give him a gun. So he looked up and said, 'Oh, Lord, if you
send me a gun, I'll send you a soul."'
In an interview with Jimmie Nichols, four-time mayor of
Apalachicola and descendant of Greek immigrants, are sto-
ries about how it was when he was a young boy. "Back in
those days the kids in the neighborhood would get together
and have their own games. There used to be an Irish town
baseball club. There was one up on the north of town called
the Gallopin' Goats. ... The name of our railroad company
was the Apalachicola Northern Railroad, and they said it stood
for Absolutely Nothin.' There used to be a train come in every
morning, around ten, from River Junction, which is now called
Chattachoochee."
Others with river roots and wonderful stories in the book in-
clude James Golden, Michael Holton, Earlean and Steve Davis,
Capt. Joseph Barber, Michael Millender, Dan Tonsmeire and
Ace Haddock, Neal and Opal Yent, C.C. Land, Boncycle Allen
Land, Jerry and Anne Allen, Billy Kersey, Don "Cairo" Ingram,
Lewis Jamerson, Angus Gholson, Marilyn Blackwell, Jewel
Dean and Joseph Harris, and L. L. Lanier. Stories of turpen-
tine workers, turpentine stills, the cotton market-an almost
endless list of fascinating stories and pictures.

Letter To The Editor

May 15, 2006
The Franklin Chronicle
P.O. Box 590
Eastpoint, Florida ,32328 ,
As an area native, many of my fondest childhood memories
surround Alligator Point. We often drove down to picnic, swim
and catch crabs with a string and a chicken neck. This week-
end while visiting a friend, I read Mr. Wargo's letter in your
edition. As I left the Point yesterday evening, I made a point to
drive by the area he is targeting. I had two immediate thoughts:
If he thinks rock and sand are unnatural, how does he recog-
nize a turtle? If he looked to the right of these two little lots, he
would have noticed concrete, asphalt, PVC, electric wiring,
plumbing, sewer lines and a host of other "unnatural" items
stacked all along the road. If more people worked to remove
trash and replace it with sand and jetties, it would preserve
and restore the beach. I think Mr. Wargo is "straining' at gnats
and swallowing camels". Just an observation from a thought-
ful reader.

Carrabelle in the Movies

FSU Film School Visits

Spends 2 days ofmoviemaking in Carrabelle area


In between takes in the Hotel kitchen, star Eleanor
"Ellie" Caudill checks out the refrigerator. Director
Michael Crandall sits for perspective on the shot.


The Old Carrabelle Hotel was
ground zero for lodging and
some filming of the screenplay
Cannon's Wake, written and
directed by Michael Crandall
of FSU and produced by
Meredith Lockwood. Assisting
Mr. Crandall in the directorial
work was Andrew Hevia, 1st
Assistant Director.
In the manner typical of "stu-
dent" filmmaking, the shoot-
ing happens in a very few days
at the start of the term, and
then the balance of the course
is all editing: the "making" of
the film. The highly-efficient
crew of 19 young people, each
with a tightly-defined job re-
sponsibility, looked and
worked just like something
right out of Hollywood. Sev-
eral people who encountered
the group remarked that they
left areas in better shape than
they found them.
SFriday the 19th of May was a
day of work in three very dif-
ferent locations. The morning
saw scenes shot at the Hotel's


kitchen, living room and din-
ing room. Afternoon waS
spent at the just-about-to-
have-its-Grand Reopening
Harry's Bar on Marine Street.,
Then sundown was the time
for the whole group to film,
their final sequence, a "Viking
funeral", on Old Beach. The
fire department graciously
supervised with no mishap.
No photo was available of our
own Ron Gempel, owner of
Carrabelle Junction, who con-
tributed the starring role as
Captain Cannon, namesake of
the movie. Appearing inn
scenes shot at Harry's and at
the beach, Mr. Gempel ob-
served that he will probably'
keep his day job-the shoot-
ing schedule went to mid-
night.
Cannon's Wake is described
as "A law-abiding son tries to,
get rid of his piratical father.
in order to live a normal life".-
The movie will be completed
later in, the year, and copies'
will be available for sale.

A Gold Mine in Bedroom Drawers


Newswire: People are selling their old
scrap gold that is gathering dust for
its cash value because gold prices
are so high. With the price of gold at a
25 year high (over $700.00 per ounce),
it makes sense. GoldKit.com, a
gold recycler. offers free insured
recycle kits so people may cash in their
scrap with 24 hour service and
guarantee satisfaction. They accept


broken and outdated items like
chains, charms, rings and more.
S"Everyone has bits of gold just lying
around which can be tumed into cash"
says Richard Zakroff, VP of
marketing. "Even old dental gold has
value." GoldKit.com processes over
10,000 recycle Kits per month.
People can get a free GoldKit
at 1-800-283-4700 or GoldKit.com.

Health Council

Minutes for Thursday, May 18, 2006 5:30 p.m.
This meeting was held in conjunction with a special commis-
sion workshop on the sales tax for healthcare.
The meeting was called to order at 5:30pm by Commission
Chair, Cheryl Sanders.
I. Results of Health Needs Assessment-Art Cooper
Mr. Cooper gave an executive summary to the commission,
health council and public. Over 500 responses were needed in
order to meet a 95% confidence level, and they gathered 558.
The assessment consisted of demographics, health indicators
and a telephone survey. The assessment was a 60+ page docu-
ment, but of note to this workshop was that 84.6% of those
surveyed said that Franklin County should spend more money
to improve available healthcare services in the county. Of those
with a positive response, 82.8% said they would support a
penny sales tax to improve health care services in the county.
II. Workshop on Penny Sales Tax with BOCC
Because this was a workshop, no votes could be taken, only
directives given. The discussion went over 2 hours, the most
noteworthy points:
A. Upon Health Council recommendation, it was decided to
eliminate the wording calling for 50% of the tax revenues to go
to indigent care. The discussion ended with the opinion that
the revenues should go solely towards new infrastructure, not
renovating the current hospital. Offsetting indigent care is
something inherent in the operating costs of a facility. The
infrastructure should be the main focus.
B. There were two schools of thought on when to put this
wording toreferendum. Alan has to have the wording in to
Doris by September 1st to make this November's ballot. This
would not allow enough time for the specific type(s) of facility,
the location of these and talking with all interested providers
to occur. The Health Council still stresses that a financial fea-
sibility study of best infrastructure type by a professional is
what is needed, and not to base this decision on individual
opinions of a few. The Department of Rural Health offered the
County such a study last year, but we were in negotiations
with another consultant at the time. A directive was given to
ask Bob Pannell from the Dept of Rural Health to be at the
next commission meeting to discuss what would be offered
through such a study and if the funding was still available.
So there is one school of thought to go ahead with broad word-
ing and put the tax to referendum without the specifics of
'infrastructure on this year's ballot to get the ball rolling. Then
there is another school that wants the specifics on infrastruc-
ture laid out first before sending to referendum, which means
it would be into next year. This will be discussed further at the
next commission meeting.
C. PAC for Healthcare Tax
Regardless of when, there will need to be a body of persons to
endorse and promote the tax in order for it to pass. They would
need to register as a PAC and collect private funds. The Health
Council as well as the County Commission are bound by sun-
shine laws, and it would not be appropriate to use taxpayer
money to endorse a tax. The Health Council and Commission
can educate the public in a neutral manner, but it would be
beneficial to have a body that can actually endorse and pro-
mote. The Commission and-Health Council are seeking names
of persons that would be interested in seeing the tax promoted.
They will gather these names at the next commission meeting.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:40 p.m.
Respectfully Submitted,
Dr. Tamara Marsh

put of more than 20 albums.
Lee's newest album was re-
corded with rock and roll leg-
ends Scotty Moore and D. J.
Fontana. Titled "Alvin Lee in
Tennessee," it's an upbeat
selection of songs that are
timely and forward looking,
yet borrow from his beloved
50's rock and roll. It includes
a new version of his signature
song, "I'm Going Home," per-
formed, according to Lee "as
it always should have been."
Funded by the St. Joe Com-
