Mission San Luis, Part II

Continued from the Chronicle issue of June 9, 2006.

Previous Archaeological Investigations
The site of San Luis de Talimali has never been lost to Talla-
hassee residents and remnants of the fort were visible as late
as the 1820s. San Luis is the only mission whose name and
location are definitively known; all other Apalachee missions
have been tentatively identified based on their reckoning from
the site. Prior to the state's acquisition of San Luis, systematic
excavations were conducted in the military complex by three
founding fathers of Florida archaeology: John W. Griffin [1948],
Hale G. Smith [1950] and Charles H. Fairbanks 11956 & 1957].
Each of them worked at the fort in attempts to define the basic
features of the military complex documented in the 1705
Landeche map, the only surviving cartographic evidence of
the site.

Publisher's Note: This is the final part of Mission San
Luis in Tallahassee, Florida, a restoration project of great
historical significance second only to St. Augustine, Florida.
Mission San Luis has also reached distinction as one of
only four projects in the United States selected for the
prestigious "preserve America" Award by the President of
the United States recently awarded to Mission San Luis
on May 2, 2006.
Following the purchase of the site by the State of Florida in
1983, a full-time research staff was employed to conduct ar-
chaeological and historical research. At that time nothing was
known of the site layout except for the general location of the
military complex. Dr. Gary Shapiro was hired as the first di-
rector of archaeology and Dr. John H. Hann as the site histo-
rian. A surveying company was hired to conduct a topographic
survey of San Luis at 2-meter intervals and establish a site
grid with permanent monuments at 50-meter intervals. Draw-
ing on Dr. Kathleen Deagan's survey methodology for estab-
lishing the boundaries of sixteenth century St. Augustine
(Deagan 1981), Shapiro conducted an auger survey of the prop-
erty at 10-meter intervals and plotted the distribution of ma-
terials across the site (Shapiro 1987). Taken together, the to-
pographic map and auger survey produced provocative results
providing the basis for a series of testable hypotheses about
the locations of both Spanish and Apalachee structures and
activity areas, including the central plaza. Eight test pits were
subsequently excavated on the hilltop to recover larger samples
from these hypothesized areas ibidd).
In 1985, the first major excavation was conducted in the
Apalachee council house. As the center of political, social, and
ritual life for the Indians, council houses were used for daily
meetings among the native leaders, ritual functions such as
pre-ballgame ceremoniesarid brewing and drinking-cacina,
and for social occasions including nightly dances. In the broad-
est sense, the village council house symbolized the bond of
community. It was primarily the property of the chief and a
symbol ofhis authority that held his people together, counter-
acting divisive forces resulting from the village's dispersed
settlement pattern.. There was a direct correlation between a
village's population and the size of its council house; some
held between 2000 and 3000 people. At over 136 feet in diam-
eter, the council house at San Luis was the largest historic
Indian building in the southeastern United States (Shapiro
and Hann 1990; Shapiro and McEwan 1992). It was a circular
thatch structure with a large opening in the center of the roof.
Enclosed benches or "niches" circled the wall and functioned
as seats and beds. Special elevated benches were reserved for
community leaders, and the one belonging to the principal
chief was the highest. At the center of the council house was a
large hearth where cacina was brewed. Remains from the build-
ing suggest that the Apalachees continued traditional activi-
ties such as flint knapping, hide preparation and cacina brew-
ing, and that the European presence had little influence on
the architecture or function of the building (Shapiro and
McEwan 1992; McEwan 2000).
In 1986-87 preliminary excavations were conducted in the

i, y '' -.- --;' itA

religious complex and Hispanic village. Following Dr. Shapiro's
untimely death in 1988, Dr. Bonnie McEwan was hired as
director of archaeology.
Work continued in the Spanish village and two dwellings were
identified (one with a detached outbuilding), along with sev-
eral clay mines later used by Spaniards and Apalachees alike
as trash pits and animal corrals. Remains of a wattle and daub
residence intruded into those of an earlier plank and thatch
house. Both types of dwellings were consistent in design and
construction with Spanish vernacular architecture found in
other areas of the Hispanic New World and in Spain. The change
in building materials through time from wood to wattle and
daub (this same shift has since been revealed elsewhere on
the site) minimized the risk of fire, and was likely an adapta-
tion to the climate, since daub structures remained cooler.
This type of construction may also have coincided with the
development of cattle ranching in the region in the 1670s since
manure was commonly used as a binding agent in daub. Of
equal interest was the realization that the orientation of the
houses also changed through time. This suggests that the His-
panic village at San Luis was not laid out on a formal grid plan
where houses faced onto streets, as in St. Augustine. Although
town plan ordinances specifying a gridiron plan for Spanish
New World towns were codified in 1573, it has been suggested
by historian Dr. David Weber that since San Luis was never

On June 10th 2006, the 7th
Annual Fishing Tournament
was held, hosted by
Fishermen's Choice in
Eastpoint. About 90% of the
youth that signed up, fished
and weighed in their catch.
Although every child that par-
ticipated won a great prize and
had a great lunch, thanks to
the 80 sponsors that donated.
The prizes were: rod & reels,
tackle boxes, castnets, and
gift certificates. During the
day the sun was out, and al-
though it was hot, I think ev-
eryone managed to have a
great time at the tournament.

Tax Sale Holds Surprises

for Collector Harris

By Sue Cronkite
It's hard to surprise a seasoned public official. Most, includ-
ing James Harris, tax collector for Franklin County, have seen
ups and downs, times of prosperity and times when there was
not much money to take care of county business.
Each year County Tax Assessor's Doris Pendleton's office places
an evaluation on every piece of property in Franklin County.
When those figures are sent to Harris' office, it is the tax
collector's job to collect the taxes owed.
"We have the lowest millage we've had in years," said Pendleton.
According to research by Willie Nored, Franklin County has
the highest taxes per capital of any county in Florida.
One person in the jury conference room in the courthouse
where the sale-was being held said that Okaloosa's delinquent
tax auction was on line on the internet, where many counties
plan to place the delinquent tax list. Then the bidding would
cover a longer period. "Seventy-three percent of Okaloosa's
tax interest went as low as 1/4 of one percent," the bidder
The tax collector's office is required by law to pay five percent,
no matter how low the bid. Pendleton said about 85 percent of
the land in Franklin County is owned by the state and federal
governments. St. Joe Company also owns a large part of the
county's land.
Normally when the bills are sent out, county tax payers go
into the tax collector's office an. pay what they owe. That money
is used in financing the county's infrastructure, including roads
and other responsibilities to the taxpayers.
Most years there are very few pages of listings of delinquent
taxes published in the local newspaper. This year there were
20 pages.
Last year when bidders gathered to pay the past-due taxes
and the interest money delinquent taxpayers would have to
pay, bids went down to almost.rock-bottom, with most of the
tax bills bringing as low as five percent.
This year was a shocker. "In 14 years I have never seen the
rates as high," said Harris. "I believe 80 percent of the bids
went at 18 percent."
Tax bills paid by people other than owners'of the property
totaled $1,527,261.37. "That's much higher than in previous
years," said Harris.
Another anomaly was that the taxes were paid by individuals.
Usually there is a room full of representatives of banks and
mortgage companies, seeking to earn more than normal rates
on their money.

Ordinary citizens who go to the delinquent tax sales each year
are trying to earn more than what bank savings accounts pay,
certificates of deposit interest, and in many instances earn-
ings on the stock market.
The county retained the tax bill for $22,703.47 on Franklin
County Hospital. Several times large bills were let go by the
One large tax bill for $85,936.30 and one for more than $12,000
reverted to the county. Later in the afternoon a person came
in and bid both of those, plus more for a total of more than
$500,000. all to be paid back at 18 percent interest.
Several parcels of land in Carrabelle were in litigation, with
the property value being contested by the owner. Some of the
large tax bills were where property had been sold and the new
owners had not paid the taxes.
There were numerous bills anywhere from $1,000 to $20,000,
with many for $10,000 and $12,000. A great number were for
$2,000 and $3,000. Most went to bidders at 18 percent inter-
Occasionally a bid would drop down to 10 or 11 percent, but
those were very few. Some were'for 17 percent and a few at 16
percent. Before the afternoon ended at 5 p.m. Harris was read-
ing the listings fast and most of the bids were for 18 percent.
Some of those bid lower were where people knew the taxpay-
ers and expected them to pay later.
Sometimes people are hurting financially and it's hard to pay
their taxes.
When asked why people would let their taxes go without pay-
ing them within the time allotted, Harris said many times it's
also just people not taking care of their business. "They forget
it, and then they wind up having to pay a high rate of interest
when they do come in," he said.

An Occasional Column By Tom W. Hoffer

A Novel Reunion,
Birthday And Father's
Day Celebration
Dozens of childhood friends, family, colleagues and former
students traveled to Chicago from all over the United States to
honor and celebrate a milestone in the life of Lawrence W.
Lichty, a not-so-aging Professor, Father, Mentor, friend and
confidant the weekend of June 16-18, 2006. Dr. Lichty is Chair-
person in Communication at the Northwestern University,
Evanston, Illinois, His wife Sandra, and daughter Belinda, along
with many others planned the celebration in secret, months
earlier to spring the surprise on Friday, June 16th, as guests
began arriving at the Lichty home Friday afternoon.
'The Blake Kellogues were spending the weekend with Larry
and Sandy already but the surprise arrival of four dozen oth-
ers gradually revealed the outline of the celebration. "Larry is
an absolute nut over the story of Lewis and Clark's explora-
tions" Blake recalled days later, and this interest became the
basis of a participatory gift from 75 of Larry's friends, family
and colleagues. Blake recalled he and his wife were traveling
in South Dakota last year when they found a coloring book at
the Wall drugstore. His wife, Pat, came up with the idea of
sending pages of the tome to friends of Dr. Lichty and having
them color those pages, adding any congratulatory notes. The
book was eventually assembled but to mail out and receive
ithe finished work took well over nine months. Finally, it was
-completed in March 2006. The introduction was written by
Dr. Lee Dreyfus, former Governor of Wisconsin. The conclud-
'ing pages were colored by Larry's Grandsons, Nolan and Clark.
The completed work was presented to Larry at a Saturday
evening dinner at their home among much frivolity and ap-

The famous Chicago skyline and boat basin.

But, the weekend was barely getting started on Friday as the
guests arrived. Blake and Pat are old friends of the Lichty's,
having met when Blake was ,News Director of WKOW Televi-
sion in Madison, Wisconsin, with over a 20 year tour in news,
earning high respect and admiration from journalism col-
leagues in the State of Wiscdnsin and Iowa.
My rolein the celebration was'pretty limited, sharing in the
delightful reunion of academic colleagues and former gradu-
ate students under the tutelage of Dr. Lichty. Many I had riot
seen for over three decades. Time was limited in a short two-
day weekend, barely able to discuss the usual list'of pharma-
cies, surgical operations and children and a few highlights.
The David LeRoys looked very niuch as I remember them from
the graduate school at the University of Wisconsin. They.op-
erate Trek'II; a profitable audience research business head-
quartered in Tucson and southern Florida. George Bailey, a
fellow graduate students of years ago, is retired, as were most
of the guests, has raised Alaska sled dogs in Greenbush, Wis-
consin. The only problem has been is that the snow.has be-'
come scarce. Ray and Barbara Carroll, from Tuscaloosa, Ala-
bama looked familiar but we had to reintroduce ourselves to
each other.
Others included author and professor Ann Watson'and her
husband Dennis. Larry's brother Dan and his' wife Barbara
traveled from Kentucky. Former Wisconsin Journalism Pro-
fessor Bill Blankenburg and his wife Pat also attended among
many others too numerous to mention here.
Friday night dinner for 30 or more arrivals consisted of
Brautworst and trimmings following a happy hour. Saturday
was scheduled for a sensational, sunny boat tour aboard the
yacht from Navy Pier in downtown Chicago. This was truly an
elegant trip, with the backdrop of the famous Chicago skyline
constantly looming in the distance. Thousands of Chicagoans
were out'in the sun and on the water. Lunch.was served.while
underway. The big night for Larry was Saturday with happy
hour on their front lawn, accompanied by Pete Wood's quartet
of musicians that captivated the'listeners.' Pete was also--a'
former student of Dr. Lichty.
The catered dinner started late but consisted of venison and
vegetables. Fifty persons sat down for the food and drink, with
a special program honoring Dr. Lichty following, and featur-
ing, of course, the coloring book. There were only a few speeches
and much conversation. Sunday brunch was from 10:00-2:00
as the guests winged their way back home. By the way, Larry
celebrated his 69t" birthday, I think.

2005 Boating Accident

Statistical Report


Florida saw boating deaths
rise in 2005 to the highest
number reported in 10 years.
The majority of the increase
was victims falling overboard,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) newly
released 2005 Boating Acci-
dent Statistical Report.
Eighty people lost their lives
in 69 incidents last year, a 15-
percent increase from 2004.
"We are very concerned about
the upward trend in boating
fatalities," said FWC Capt.
Richard Moore, Florida's boat-
ing law administrator. "Espe-
cially given the fact the vast
majority of these are easily
"Paying attention to what's
going on around your boat is
very important, since many
accidents are the result of a
collision with another vessel
dr fixed object."
'In 2005, falls overboard in-
dreased 53 percent over the
previous year, resulting in 29
incidents and 30 victims. Of
those victims, 79 percent of
fatal falls overboard involved
an open motorboat or some
other small, unstable craft.
Additionally, 69 percent of fa-
tal falls overboard occurred on
calm, inland waters; 93 per-
cent of the victims drowned
(63 percent of those reportedly
could swim); none of the
drowning victims were wear-
ing or using a life jacket, and
53 percent were at least 51
years old.
"As for the deaths," Moore

said, "the simple act of wear-
ing a life jacket is your best
insurance on the water. Our
stats show that it's mostly
swimmers who are drowning
when they unexpectedly end
up in the water."
Sandy Morone and Gay Kite
of Ocala outlived their sons,
who drowned in a boating-ac-
cident Dec. 19, 2004 on Half
Moon Lake in the Ocala Na-
tional Forest. Their sons,
Allan Michael Morone, 22,
and John Edward Ray, 23,
failed to wear life vests. Their
bodies were not recovered for
more than a week.
"You don't think it will hap-
pen to you," Morone said.
"You think it will happen to
someone else. I'm living, but
I'm not living the same way."
Kite agrees with Morone on
the importance of wearing a
life vest.
"I do know, as a mother who
has lost her son, these acci-
dents can be prevented," she

County Comp
Plan Ruled
"Not In
With DCA


Monday, June 12th, an ad-
ministrative law judge ruled
that Franklin County's Com-
prehensive Plan were not in
compliance with the Dept. of
Community Affairs rules. At
issue were the capital im-
provement elements (CIEs)
that were absent from the
plan and the petitioner's claim
that the housing element or-
dinances and coastal high
hazard areas were inaccurate.
The ruling by administrative
law judge J. Lawrence John-
son is not expected, to have
any direct impact on previ-
ously approved large scale
comprehensive plan amend-
ments for the "St. James Bay"
377 acres and the St. Joe de-
velopment "SummerCamp".
The ruling have some effect on
the McIntyre Rural Village, the
Conservation Residential, the
Carrabelle East Village devel-

USDA's National

Aquaculture Production

Outlook For 2006

Growth and Expansion Forecasted
USDA's principle social science research agency is the Eco-
nomic Research Service, or ERS. Each year, ERS communi-
cates research results and socioeconomic indicators via mar-
ket analysis updates, reports and briefings. The Aquaculture
Outlook is prepared twice per year by ERS and examines
changes in domestic production and prices, and provides pro-
duction forecasts for the coming year. The report also exam-
ines changes in imports and exports of aquaculture products.
The article below is excerpted from the March 2006 edition of
Outlook. The entire report can be downloaded at this web site:
The combination of a somewhat stronger domestic economy-
in terms of grbss domestic product and disposable income-
and. a US dollar that is weaker against a number of foreign
currencies, is expected to increase demand for seafood in gen-
eral, and domestic seafood and aquaculture products in par-
ticular, throughout the year ahead. Of particular importance
to domestic aquatic farmers, the weaker dollar means many
imported aquaculture products are expected to be more ex-
pensive and their imports will grow at a slower rate. Their
imports will grow at a slower rate.
Still More Imports
Even with these changes, imports of aquaculture products are
expected to continue to grow as a percentage of total domestic
seafood supply. Lower domestic commercial landings of a num-
ber of species in the Gulf Coast region heavily impacted by
last year's hurricanes are likely to result in a continued de-
mand for imports to fill marker needs. With the exception of
crawfish and oysters, most domestic aquaculture operations
were not severely impacted by storms.
Factors For Growth
,The overall picture of anticipated growth in the domestic aquac-
ulture and seafood industries during 2006 is based on four
major factors. First, strong domestic economic growth this year
is expected to improve restaurant sales, which are a chief out-
let for seafood sales. Second, a weaker dollar is expected to
make imports of many competing seafood products relatively
more expensive, and make US exports more competitive. Third,
as demand for poultry products lessens in many parts of the
world, (over avian flu concerns), demand for alternative pro-
tein products may place some upward pressure on seafood
prices. Fourth, relatively strong farm-gate prices for a number
of aquaculture products in 2005 are expected to provide an
incentive for US fish farmers to increase production.
Offsetting these positive factors for the domestic aquaculture
industry is expected strong competition for the year ahead
from US livestock producers. Production of both beef and pork
is expected to be up this year, with average prices expected to
be somewhat lower than in 2005.

The Circuit

S- Your Public Trustee
Q. Can the Clerk's Office help me
S with a passport?
A. The Clerk's Office is a passport
application and filing provider. You
MARCIA JOHNSON can apply for, a new passport or re-
ceive the paperwork to renew your
passport. Because we are a provider of this service, we stay
abreast of all changes in laws and regulations related to pass-
ports and foreign travel. One upcoming change in foreign travel
will affect you, if you are traveling to and from the Caribbean,
Bermuda, Mexico, Canada, and parts of Central and South.
America. Until now, you have been able to travel to and from
these locations using a birth certificate as acceptable docu-
mentation of citizenship. However, the Intelligence Reform and
Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 requires that by January 1,
2008, travelers to these destinations must have passports.
But, the new act will go into affect for the above destinations
in phases, with a deadline of December 31, 2006, for the first
phase. This means you have less than six months before a
passport is required for air and sea travel to and from these
locations. It can take a minimum of 4-6 weeks to receive a
new passport, so don't delay applying if you are traveling in
the near future. December 31, 2007 is the deadline for pass-
ports for all land and border crossings as well as air and sea
travel to these same locations. Please keep in mind that once
the Clerk has filed the passport, any further communication
regarding the passport must be addressed with the U.S. De-
partment of State.

Boyd Works To Help
Rural America

Legislation supports the Universal Service Fund and
the availability and affordability of communications
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) on June 8th pushed
through an amendment to the Communications Opportunity,
Promotion, and Enhancement (COPE) Act (HR 5252) that will
help ensure that all Americans, regardless of where they live,
have access to affordable and reliable communications ser-
The amendment preserves the Federal Communications
Commission's authority to require Voice over Internet Proto-
col (VoIP) providers to contribute to the Universal Service Fund
(USF) and pay appropriate intercarrier compensation fees just
like every other voice service provider.
"Rural America cannot be left behind when it comes to na-
tional policy decisions," said Congressman Boyd, Co-Chair of
the Congressional Rural Caucus. "This amendment upholds
the standards of fair service by requiring providers who use
the communications network to maintain its infrastructure
through contributions to the USF. In turn, the USF provides
support to schools, libraries, and healthcare providers in ru-
ral areas thus producing a better quality of life for oii ,rural
communities in North Florida."
The Univeisal Service Fund was i-eated to' offset the ad'da
costs of providing telephone services to rural areas, which re-
quire more infrastructures and have fewer customers than
urban areas. The program, which is funded by a federal phone
tax, awards grants to telephone companies for investment in
rural infrastructure and for subsidizing rural customers. Con-
tributions to the USF:
* Assist communications providers with building and main-
taining networks in high cost rural areas in all 50 states.
* Help low-income Americans who would otherwise be unable
to afford telephone service.
* Provide support to schools and libraries so they can receive
affordable access to telecommunications services.
* Equip public and non-profit rural healthcare providers with
timely access to telecommunications services.
"Throughout rural America, the USF is allowing small com-
munities to address their needs while still,maintaining their
small town values and way of life," Boyd stated. "This amend-
ment will help ensure that North Floridians, even in the most
rural settings, can access the same broadband capabilities
that businesses and citizens in urban areas already enjoy."

Senior Center And The
By Richard E. Noble
At the New Senior Center in Carrabelle this past week there
was a demonstration project. The Project was sponsored by
the DOT and an area Construction firm. It was an open house
project and several local and city officials attended along with
a variety of local citizens.
The purpose of the project was to expose the community to
the future re-surfacing plans for Highway 98-beginning at
the foot of the Tillie Miller Bridge in Carrabelle and extending
east to Franklin County's most dangerous intersection at the
bend in the road at the junction of 319.
The design of the project was to provide information to the
curious and receive input-as far as I could tell they were
getting plenty of input.
If there is one thing that I have learned in this life it is the fact
that nothing is simple-NOTHING.
The engineers and road consultants present seemed to have
their hands full. I could relate some of the multitude of ques-
tions and problems to you, but since learning from a County
Commissioner who was present that the re-surfacing plan was
pretty much a "done deal", I don't really see any sense to it. I
presume that the demonstration was more or less a demon-
stration of Highway Psychology.
This is only a re-surfacing plan with a few minor changes. It is
infinitely easier to re-surface a highway or to expand an old
highway than to construct a new one-I am not talking about
the logistics, engineering or the funding etc. I'm talking about
People. Problems: Whose neighborhood will the new highway
be going through; how will it effect the environment; what
material will be used; what about the businesses and resi-
dents on the old highway etc. etc. And in most cases, if and
when, these problems get settled, by the time the highway is
finished it is usually obsolete. I have read that America's high-
way construction is decades behind the production and sales
of automobiles. We can all be thankful we live in a small town,
because those big city traffic jams that we read about will not
be going away in the near future-or maybe ever.
The Federal Government dictates the rules and regulations
for highway construction-and funds billions and billions of
dollars. The States manage, dispense and spend the Federal
funds. Your local City and County governments take care of
the intercommunity roads-paved, dirt and two tracks.
In 1956 Eisenhower got the Federal Aid Highway Act passed.
This Act was responsible for 43,000 rles of interstate high-
ways aci-bss the United States. This'Will probably be remem-
bered as Eisenhower's greatest achievement as president. This
project began in the 50's and ran through the 90's.
Eisenhower was able to get this Act passed on the grounds
that an interstate highway system was a military necessity-it
was necessary to the national defense and security. Educa-
tion, health care advocates and environmentalists should be
taking note of this. If you can frame your proposal in terms of
the national defense or national security, you can probably
get all the money you want. The United States currently spends
more on military and national defense and security than all
the other nations of the world combined-and this has been
true with or without an on-going war or the current 9-11 ini-
tiatives. You would think that they could find a few extra dol-
lars for another Veteran's hospital here and there, wouldn't
you? Oh well, keep the faith!

Mission San Luis from Page 1
established as a formal pueblo, it may not have been subject
to these town planning regulations. It is also possible that the
Spaniards did not want to reveal their full intentions to the
Apalachees who were always hesitant to accept an expanding
Spanish population. Nevertheless, the Hispanic village at San
Luis was described by a traveler in the 1690s as having the
appearance of a Spanish city.
Archaeologists expected material remains from Hispanic resi-
dences at San Luis to be similar to those at seventeenth cen-
tury domestic sites in St. Augustine, although perhaps more
modest in keeping with its position as a site "on the frontier of
the frontier." Contrary to expectation, the Hispanic domestic
assemblages from San Luis are exceptional. The quality and
abundance of imported exotic goods (including beads and pen-
dants, pottery, and personal possessions) far exceeded any
contemporaneous assemblage from St. Augustine. A distinc-
tive diet was also revealed through food remains that reflected
the successful introduction of European domesticates to the
fertile lands of Apalachee Province. These findings underscore
the fact that, although the Apalachee missions were estab-
lished in large part to provision the garrison at St. Augustine,
Spaniards quickly fell into a pattern of exporting agricultural
goods directly to Havana in exchange for imported goods from
around the world. It is now believed that, in many respects,
Spaniards living in the hinterland capital of San Luis enjoyed
a more idealized Hispanic lifestyle than did their relatives liv-
ing in St. Augustine.
Despite the relative abundance of imported materials, native
pottery is the most abundant material recovered from Span-
ish domestic contexts, reflecting the integral role of native
women in Spanish households as servants and wives. Although
most of the native pottery recovered was in traditional cazuela
and jar forms, the Hispanic village assemblage also included
the highest concentration of colono-ware found anywhere at
San Luis. This suggests that colono-ware (made by natives in
European vessel forms including bowls, plates, pitchers, and
cups), were manufactured primarily for Spaniards-presum-
ably when imported wares were in short supply-but were not
adopted by Apalachees who continued to use large, commu-
nal vessels. There is no indication that the production of colono-
ware precipitated a wholesale shift in traditional labor pat-
terns (from a female-dominated household-level activity to
commercial production dominated by males) similar to that
brought about by the establishment of majolica manufactur-
ing centers elsewhere in Spanish America.
In 1986 and 1987, work in the convento or friary was also
undertaken (a building was identified in this area during the
1985 broad-scale survey). The 30 x 70 foot wattle and daub
convento was European in design and construction, but was
remarkable for the lack of European remains. The assemblage
from the friary was much closer to that of a native residence
than those from the Spanish village. The abundance of
Apalachee materials supports the lack of personal possessions
maintained by the Franciscans, and speaks to the important
role of natives as parish interpreters, porters, and domestic
workers. The building likely had many functions including a
residence, classroom, chapel, dining room, infirmary, and stor-
age facility, underscored by the large quantities of charred
beans and corn found during excavations. Since the
Franciscans observed cloister, it is believed that those parts of
the convento that were open to the public were the rooms lo-
cated directly off the plaza, while the bedrooms and dining
room were located at the back of the convento. A large con-
centration of pottery in one room adjacent to the refectory is
believed to have been the pantry. This interpretation was sup-
ported in 1998 when attention was redirected to this area to
determine if the religious complex included other buildings.
Just west of the convento, a small structure with a charred
pad was found. This building was the detached cocina (kitchen)
and the heavily burned area was the remains of a stove. As
with the Spanish houses, the remains of the wattle and daub
cocina intruded on an earlier and slightly smaller plank build-
ing. A parallel row of posts running from the entrance of the
cocina to the rear of the covento suggested that there was a
covered walkway to protect native servants while carrying food
from the kitchen to the refectory (dining room) at the rear of
the convento (leading directly into the hypothesized pantry).
As with the convent, the assemblage from the cocina 'was
primarily Indian in origin and suggests that this building was
primarily the domain of natives working in the service of fri-

L- ,

Between 1990 and 1997 extensive testing was conducted on
the mission church. Other than the council house, the church
was the single most important building during mission times.
It defied popular belief that Florida's missions were "simple,
even primitive constructions'' consisting of "rude wattle-and-
daub buildings". On the contrary, the San Luis church was
comparable in size to its counterpart in St. Augustine (ap-
proximately 110 feet long by 50 feet wide) and was constructed
following the classical European proportional system often
referred to as the golden section: Its composite construction
(plank walls in the nave and wattle and daub walls in the sanc-
tuary) distinguished the sacred and secular areas, and inven-
tories reveal that the Florida mission churches were adorned
with paintings, statues, furnishings, and vestments for Mass.
Although the Franciscans took vows of personal poverty, this
practice did not extend to the House of God which was in-
tended to have a visceral impact on its parishioners.'The two
gilded altarpieces (reredos) and organs sent to Spanish Florida
were likely located in the main churches at St. Au gustirie and
San Luis. Materials recovered from the church included thou-
sands of olive jar sherds in the sanctuary'(used to hold wine
and water for Mass), hardware, and native pottery including'
colono-ware candlesticks made by Apalachee potters to illu-
minate the church.
SBecause the cemetery is located beneath the floor of the church,
archaeological work was carried out in collaboration with physi-
cal anthropologist Dr. Clark Spencer Larsen. The unique con-
ditions of life at Mission San Luis relative to other Florida mis-
sions are reflected in the skeletal remains of the Apalachees
buried in the cemetery. To date; no Europeans have bee'niden-
tified in the San Luis cemetery, suggesting that even' with a
substantial Spanish population, the mission church was truly
the domain of the natives. Spaniards presumably chose to be
transported to St. Augustine for burial near their extended
A minimum of 210 skeletal individuals were studied from the
cemetery at Mission San Luis. These remains revealed several
distinctive traits, including the lowest frequency of dental caries
found at any Florida mission. Since maize consumption is
positively correlated with an increase in dental caries, it is
believed that the successful introduction of European domes-
tic plants and animals, and the adoption of this varied diet by
Apalachees, had a positive effect on their oral health. This
finding was remarkable since the Apalachees were the only

Luis was also distinctive in that it displayed the lowest fre-
quency of arthritis among Florida's missionized Indians. Al-
though the native population was the labor force at all of the
missions, Spanish activities and their dependence on beasts
of burden, such as oxen and horses, may have relieved some
of the physical stressors endured by other mission Indians.
Deputy Governor Roque Perez, for example, was engaged in
ranching (pigs, cattle, and horses), farming (including wheat
for export to Havana), and construction. He may have been
responsible for introducing the first oxcarts into Apalachee
Province, which were used to transport produce overland 8 or
9 leagues from San Luis to the port of San Marcos (St. Marks),
and for hauling lumber used for the blockhouse. Prior to this
time, Indian laborers were apparently used for these tasks.
In 1991, the area predicted to be the Apalachee village at San
Luis during the 1984-85 broad-scale survey was targeted for
testing. Large quantities of native pottery and lithics were re-
covered from this portion of the site, located on the opposite
(west) side of the central plaza from the Spanish village. Only
one Apalachee structure was found during the excavations-
the chiefs house. Located adjacent to the council house, this
structure measured 78 feet in diameter (approximately three
times the size of commoners' houses found elsewhere in
Apalachee Province). As with the council house, the chiefs
house was a circular thatch structure with a large central
hearth. It contained relatively few European items, but cow
and pig remains were identified from animal remains, indicat-
ing that at least some Apalachees had access to domestic ani-
mals. The large number of quartz crystal beads and pendants
recovered from the structure may reflect the dual religious
and political authority of chiefs since quartz crystal was be-
lieved by many southeastern Indians to possess special prop-
- erties and is frequently found in shamans' bundles.
During the course of testing in the Apalachee village, a large
exterior hearth and pottery waster pit were identified to the
south and west of the chiefs house. The absence of food re-
mains from the hearth suggests That it was used exclusively
for firing pottery. The waster pit produced a number of
reconstructable vessels (maximum 228 individual vessels;
minimum 75 individual vessels), which has provided impor-
tant baseline data on Apalachee pottery manufacturing tech-
niques and constituents, and is the first native ceramic pro-
duction area identified in Florida. While the Apalachee village
investigations revealed a chiefly residence and pottery manu-
facturing area, the concentration of Apalachee materials across
this area appears to have resulted from native activities rather
than residences. Clay mines for building wattle and daub struc-
tures, lithic tools used for hide and food preparation, and pot-
tery used primarily for food storage and preparation charac-
terize this service area. No non-elite Apalachee residences (com-
moners' houses were typically 18-24 feet in diameter) have ever
been found on the hilltop, indicating that the highly dispersed
prehistoric Apalachee settlement pattern continued into the
mission period.
Since 1990, the San Luis research staff has worked intermit-
tently in the military complex. Located at the north end of the
ridge top, soldiers in the military complex had a commanding
view of the surrounding countryside and access to water via
the covered way (a path running from the southeast bastion to
the seep springs in the, ravine). This is the one area of San
Luis for which there is cartographic evidence dating from 1705,
the year after San Luis was burned and abandoned. The
Landeche map. documented the final in a series of blockhouses,
as well as an idealized rectangular defensive line consisting of
a stockade with four diamond-shaped bastions, surrounded
by a dry moat. Archaeological investigations revealed a two-
story wattle and daub 40 x 70 foot blockhouse, surrounded by
an irregular trapezoidal defensive line. There are only two dia-
mond-shaped bastions, on the northeast and southwest cor-
ners. The southeast corner had an odd geometric-shaped bas-
tion, while the northwest corner had no bastion at all. Fur-
thermore the moat did not extend around the entire stockade,
but abruptly stopped in the southwest corner. The moat also
appears to run to the south (although excavations were sus-
pended before this could be verified), suggesting that a 1702
order to construct a trench from the religious complex to the
fort may have been carried out. Materials from the fort indi-
cate that firearms available to the garrison at San Luis were
*generally outdated by European standards, and that, among
the Apilachees, bows and arrows were never effectively re-
placed. While most of the assemblage reflects the construc-
tion and. maintenance of the building, as well as routine mili-
tary duty, there were also a wide variety of non-military re-
mains which were likely lost when the entire village was se-
questered within the fort walls when alarms sounded near the
end of the occupation.

Site Integrity
Following the destruction and abandonment of Mission San
Luis by the Spaniards and Apalachees in 1704, the first docu-
mented reoccupation of the site was in 1825, when it was pur-
chased by Robert Jameson and Benjamin Clements. It was
subsequently owned by a series of individuals, including A.
M. Randolph (1855-1864) as part of his 800 plus acre planta-
tion, and Frenchman Emile DuBois who started a vineyard on
the property (1884-1890s). In 1932, James Messer purchased
362 acres that included the 50 acres of San Luis de Talimali
his heirs sold to the State of Florida. Despite intensive agri-
cultural activities in the vicinity of San Luis, none of the post-
mission occupants disturbed the area that was subsequently
determined to be the seventeenth century public building com-
plex. San Luis was designated a National Historic Landmark
in 1960, when it was still in private ownership, and purchased
by the state in 1983 because of the site's significance as Span-

ish Florida's western capital from 1656-1704.
Today the site occupies a beautiful, well-preserved setting. It
Sis owned and managed by the Florida Department of State
;with the objective of combining effective resource management
with scientific research and public education. Mission San Luis
provides a marvelous opportunity to communicate not only
,the colonial past of Florida to the public, but also to inform lay
.people about why and how archaeology and history are done.

- Security
e Operation
f For

f Oriskany
- Sinking



When the ex-USS Oriskany
- slipped beneath the Gulf of
- Mexico just after 11 a.m. May
d 17 off Pensacola, the Florida
d Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
s tion Commission (FWC) was
t well-represented among a
o host of city, county, state and
-federal agencies providing se-
e curity for the event.
The FWC's participation in-
e eluded the 85-foot JJ Brown
e out of Carrabelle, the 45-foot
d, Guardian out of Crystal River,
and four smaller patrol ves-
sels. The overall security as-
pect of the operation was to
s ensure a 1-mile security pe-
r rimeter for sinking the 888-
7 foot carrier as an artificial reef
- and to ensure no one was in-
e jured in the process.
Even though the Navy was in
charge of events surrounding
the actual sinking of the car-
rier, it was Brad Williams' job
to make sure the security zone
was maintained around the
ship before and during the
sinking, and to coordinate
s assistance to any boaters in
it distress.
0 The FWC was just one agency,
- however, among several that
w .participated in the security
operation. Others included
the U.S. Coast Guard, the
Pensacola Police Department
and Escambia, Okaloosa and
SBay County sheriffs' depart-
ments. The Alabama Marine

Police also had two vessels on
the scene.
There were an estimated 500
spectator boats that made the
24-mile trip south of
Pensacola Pass to observe the
sinking. Williams said every-
one was well-behaved, but he
was amazed that one indi-
vidual made the trip on a per-
sonal watercraft, while carry-
ing two gas containers.
He did say two smaller ves-
sels, both under 20 feet, cap-
sized in the 2- to 3-foot seas
on the return leg. Both male
occupants and a small dog
were rescued by either law
enforcement or spectator ves-
On Thursday, both Navy
divers and artificial reef ex-
perts with the FWC's Division
of Marine Fisheries Manage-
ment dove on the Oriskany.
They reported the carrier is
sitting on the bottom in 212
feet of water in an upright
position and the bow facing
south as planned. They took
measurements ard reported
the distance from the surface
to the top of the tower is 71
feet and 140 feet to the deck.


War from Page 1
(San Francisco) to try to re-
solve the case by August 31 st,
Bowdre ordered that the pro-
ceedings be confidential but
she gave Renfrew authority to
decide who was included in
the talks.
Florida wants enough water to
maintain fish and wildlife
along the Apalachicola River
and oysters in Apalachicola
Bay. Georgia and Alabama
want water for future growth
and recreation on reservoirs
along the Chattahoochee
River. A Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
spokesman said Florida offi-
cials won't be able to consult
with the environmental
groups during the talks, but
they will represent all state
"We are hopeful we can
achieve a fair and equitable
water allocation that will meet
the needs of the state and pre-
serve the environmental and
economic value" of the
Apalachicola River and Bay,
spokesman Anthony De Luise
said. The lawsuits also involve
the Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa
river system, which flows
through Alabama and Geor-
gia but not Florida. The Wa-
ter Works and Sanitary Sewer
Board of Montgomery, Ala.,
filed a court petition last week
asking to be included in the
talks. Bowdre issued an or-
der Tuesday stating it would
be up to Renfrew to decide
who is included.

Project Is

Among Five,


To Receive

Grant Award

The National Association of
Counties (NACo), the National
Fish and Wildlife Foundation
(Foundation), and the Na-
tional Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration's
(NOAA) Community-based
Restoration Program, are
pleased to announce that the
Coastal Counties Restoration
Initiative has awarded a total
of more than $300,000 to five
high quality community-led
projects to support marine
habitat restoration in coastal
counties across the nation.
Sea Turtles at Risk, Inc. in
partnership with Franklin
County rose to the top of a
competitive pool of applicants
and will receive $28,350 to
restore and protect a 4,000
foot section of the hurricane
damaged St. George Island
Dune system through native
vegetation plantings, installa-
tion of a sand fence, and con-
struction of four dune walk-
The initiative provides grant
funding for marine habitat
restoration projects on a com- -
petitive basis to innovative,.
high quality county-led or:
supported projects that sup-
port wetland, riparian and.
coastal habitat restoration.
CCRI is a partnership between
NACo, the Foundation, and
NOAA's Community-based
Restoration Program.
Sea Turtles at Risk, Inc.
(STAR) and Franklin County
will restore and protect a
4,000 foot section of the hur-
ricane damaged St. George
Island Dune system through
native vegetation plantings,
installation of a sand fence,
and construction of four dune
walkovers. The project will
provide critical habitat for
marine turtles such as logger-
head, green, and leatherback,
and improve nesting and
hatching rates of these spe-
cies. Additional wildlife in-
cluding snowy plover, least
tens, American oystercatcher,
peregrine falcon, and piping
plover will also 1Ap)nefit from
the project. The dune walk-
overs will assist in the long-
term maintenance of the
dunes through deterring foot
traffic from the fragile habi-
tat. Monitoring will be done
following the project to evalu-
ate the restoration efforts and.
impacts to turtle nesting and
hatching rates. The grant is
for $28,350.
The partners selected the win-
ning projects from an ex-
tremely competitive pool of 48
applications. NOAA's Commu-
nity-based Restoration Pro-
gram is providing major finan-
cial support for the individual
projects with grants ranging
from $28,000 to $100,000.
Consideration for funding is
based upon the level of county
leadership and the ecological
benefits for a community's:.
coastal and marine resources.--
'These projects are excellent;
examples of county govern-
ments playing a crucial role
in coastal habitat restoration,"
said Dr. Bill Hogarth, NOAA
Fisheries Service Director.
"The projects will benefit lo-
cal communities and our
nation's fisheries."
The National Association of
Counties is the only national
organization that represents
county governments in the
United States. NACo provides
an extensive line of services
including legislative, re-
search, technical, and public
affairs assistance, as well as
enterprise services to its
members. NACo acts as a li-
aison with other levels of gov-
ernment, works to improve
public understanding of coun-
ties, serves as a national ad-
vocate for counties and pro-
vides them with resources to
help find innovative methods
to meet the challenges they
face. More than 2,000 of the
nation's 3,066 counties, rep-
resenting over 80 percent of
the U.S. population, are NACo
members. For more informa-
tion, visit www.naco.org.

(321) Rose Cottage Chronicles. The Civil War let-
ters of the Bryant-Stephens families of North Florida
edited by Arch Fredric Blakey, Ann Smith Lainhart
and Winston Stephens, Jr. University of Florida
Press, 1998, 390pp. Originally published at $35.00.
Bookshop = $25.00. No longer in circulation. As
fresh and poignant today as when they were writ-
ten, these touching letters and diaries capture the
heart of everyday life during the Civil War. Set both
at home in north Florida and on the front, the let-
ters were written from 1858 to mid-1865 by two
generations of the Bryant and Stephens families,
ordinary Confederate folk whose members included
radical secessionists, moderates, and even a few
Unionists. This is a story without generals.
The domestic letters, written mostly by mothers and
daughters from their homes near Welaka, Florida,
describe their hatred of Yankee invaders, their emo-
tions in dealing with slaves, and their flaming pa-
triotism as well as their fear of being abandoned by
the government. They offer a rare picture of the
expanded roles of women as farm managers; their
naive hopes for a quick victory; and their yearning
for peace. From the military camps, soldiers and
officers write about Abe Lincoln; "coloured troops";.
endless marches; Florida's two best-known battles,
Olustee and Natural Bridge; and all the skirmishes
around Jacksonville and the St. Johns River as well
as distant military events like the Battle of
Gettysburg. For all of the letter writers, death has
become as familiar as Spanish moss.
Especially, though, the letters tell a love story. The
courtship of Winston Stephens and Tivie Bryant was
prolonged, erratic, and stormy; their married life at
Rose Cottage was nearly perfect-and brief. Four
years and three months after their wedding-dur-
ing the final ticks of the Confederate clock-Win-
ston was killed in battle. Days later their only son
was born.
Virtually all of the letters-more than one thousand
exchanged between eight major and four minor cor-
respondents-survive in this family saga, a riveting
human and historical chronicle set in the foreground
of the Civil War.
ARCH FREDRIC BLAKEY, retired military histo-
rian, has written several books and numerous ar-
ticles on the Civil War and Florida history, includ-
ing General John H. Winder, C.S.A. (UPF, 1990), a
History Book Club selection. He lives near Bell,

alogist. She lives in Peabody, Massachusetts.

Newly Discovered Copies

Of Lynn Willoughby's Out-

Of-Print Fair to Middlin'

The Story Of The Antebellum Cotton Trade Of The
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee River Valley
(22) University of Alabama Press, 1993, 202pp. Do-
ing business in the antebellum South required a
very delicate balancing act-with the central role in
the process played by the coastal merchant. From
this vantage point the merchant manipulated the
resources from the upriver suppliers and through
an intricate economic ard banking network pro-
vided cotton to the international brokers. It was, in
effect, a closed system on each river under the care-
ful control of the coastal merchants. This study fo-
cuses on the port of Apalachicola, Florida, and the
businessmen who created a chain of international
finance and trade in the promotion and disfiibu-
tion of the Old South's major source of income.
Fair to Middlin' provides a detailed, highly readable
description of a regional antebellum economy in the
Apalachicola/Chattahoochee River valley and rein-
forces the argument that the South was self-suffi-
cient and not dependent on other regions for its
food supply. Willoughby explains in fascinating de-
tail how the businessmen associated with the area's
cotton trade coped with the poor conditions of trans-
portation, communication, money, and banking.
Early regional economies revolved around the riv-
ers that represented the primary transportation
arteries for trade in the Old South. Cotton busi-
nessmen located along the waterway and on the
coast neatly divided the labor necessary to market
the region's major source of income. Local money
and banking conditions retarded the economic
growth of this frontier area, and only the innova-
tions of these coastal businessmen enabled the con-
tinuance of this vital trade network.
The advent of the railroad shattered this ongoing
business arrangement and completely altered the
cohesiveness of the river economy. Railroads fun-
damentally changed the business customs and
trade routes so that boundaries of the once sepa-
rate river economies blurred and eventually faded,
gradually leading to an integrated national economy.

(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
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 Aplachicola
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.



The Seminoles' Struggles to Survive
in the West, 1836 1866
By Jane F. Lancaster
The University of Tennessee Press/Knox-
ville, hardcover. 225 pp. 1994.
This book focuses on this hitherto neglected
era in Native American history and places
the Seminoles in their correct historical po-
sition as a Native American tribe. By exam- Fl v
inning the Seminoles' adjustments during t
their first decades in the West in light of fed- *c".F m
eral Indian policy, it concludes that after
thirty years of struggles, caused largely bthe 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-
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.

(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
